DAILY BIBLE READING for Week of October 28 - November 3, 2018
10/28 Jeremiah 49,50 - In chapter 49, Jeremiah continues his prophecies against the neighboring nations of Judah. He speaks against Ammon, verses 1-6; against Edom, verses 7-22; against Damascus (Syria), verses 21-27; against Kedar (Arabians) and Hazor, verses 28-33; and against Elam, verses 34-39. In chapter 50, Jeremiah begins a lengthy judgment against Babylon.
10/29 Jeremiah 51,52 - In chapter 51, Jeremiah continues and concludes his judgment against Babylon. In chapter 52, Jeremiah recounts again the judgment against Judah and their king, Zedekiah.
10/30 Hebrews 1,2 - The book of Hebrews was written by an unknown author and is directed towards the people of Israel. The warning is given often to the Jews who were hesitating in their belief and acceptance of Christ as their Messiah. Chapter 1 gives an opening statement of the superiority of Jesus over angels. In chapter 2 the people are warned against neglecting such a great salvation.
10/31 Lamentations 1-3 - This book is the primary reason why Jeremiah is often called the "weeping prophet." He is so upset as he considers the judgment against Judah and, in particular, Jerusalem. But, in chapter 3 Jeremiah gives some of the greatest verses speaking of God's faithfulness and mercy towards His people.
11/1 Lamentations 4,5 - In chapter 4 Jeremiah describes the horrors of the siege of Jerusalem. Then in chapter 5 he pours out his heart to the Lord and requests that God would turn the people's hearts back to Him.
11/2 Hebrews 3,4 - Christ is seen as the Son of God's household and is, therefore, superior to Moses. In chapter 4 the writer speaks of the spiritual rest people will have in Christ and the power of God's word and the invitation to come boldly to the throne of God.
11/3 Ezekiel 1-3 - Ezekiel is one of the more unusual books of prophecy in the Bible. He uses extensive imagery and symbols depicting God's evaluation and judgment of Israel and the nations that were attacking that nation. God commissions Ezekiel in chapter 2 and calls him to serve as a watchman in chapter 3.
