From today’s reading in the One Year Chronological Bible dated 7/8:

Today we get several reminders about the Lord:

1) God is the God of creation. “You who laid the foundations of the earth, so that it should not be moved forever.”

2) God is the One who sustains His creation. He provides food and drink for man and animal and “He appointed the moon for seasons; The sun knows it’s going down.”

3) Everything on the earth belongs to the Lord. “In wisdom You have made them all. The earth is full of your possessions.”

4) God hears, responds, and forgives His people. “You answered them, O Lord our God; You were to them God-Who-Forgives.”

5) God is holy and worthy of our praise. “He is high above all the people. Let them praise Your great and awesome name. He is holy.”

6) God defeats death through the resurrection of His Son, Jesus. “His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory. The Lord has made known His salvation.”

7) Jesus is coming back to judge the world. “For He is coming to judge the earth. With righteousness He shall judge the world.”

a) No one knows when Jesus will return, not even Jesus. “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.” (Matthew 24:36)

b) The Father has appointed Jesus as the judge. ”For the Father judges no one, but has given all judgment to the Son, that all may honor the Son, just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him.” (John 5:22-23)

c) Those who believe in Christ will not be condemned but those who don’t will. “Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil.“ (John 3:18-19) “The one who rejects me and does not receive my words has a judge; the word that I have spoken will judge him on the last day.” (John 12:48)

d) Salvation is not based on works. It is based on faith! “Then they said to Him, “What must we do, to be doing the works of God?” Jesus answered them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.”” (John 6:28-29) “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.” Ephesians 2:8)

(Psalms 98-100, Psalms 102, 104)
