SCRIPTURE BY THE CASTING OF THE LOT BEFORE THE LORD WITH ROUGH NOTES:

May 28, 2024 Tuesday
1 John 3 plus Luke 16
The common theme is what a true life of righteousness is and that it is the evidence of being a child of God in contrast with the opposite.
1John 3:10-18 (KJV)

10In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.11For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.12Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.13Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.14We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.15Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.16Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.17But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?18My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.


Luke 16:14-20 (KJV)

14And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him.15And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.16The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.17And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.18Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:20And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,

Proverbs 20 and 2 Kings 19
The common theme is the judgment of God that comes on those that defy God and provoke God to anger.
2Kgs 19:27-37 (KJV)

27But I know thy abode, and thy going out, and thy coming in, and thy rage against me.28Because thy rage against me and thy tumult is come up into mine ears, therefore I will put my hook in thy nose, and my bridle in thy lips, and I will turn thee back by the way by which thou camest.29And this shall be a sign unto thee, Ye shall eat this year such things as grow of themselves, and in the second year that which springeth of the same; and in the third year sow ye, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruits thereof.30And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall yet again take root downward, and bear fruit upward.31For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of mount Zion: the zeal of the LORD of hosts shall do this.32Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the king of Assyria, He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shield, nor cast a bank against it.33By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, saith the LORD.34For I will defend this city, to save it, for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake.35And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the LORD went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.36So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh.37And it came to pass, as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that Adrammelech and Sharezer his sons smote him with the sword: and they escaped into the land of Armenia. And Esarhaddon his son reigned in his stead.


Prov 20:2-3 (KJV)

2The fear of a king is as the roaring of a lion: whoso provoketh him to anger sinneth against his own soul.3It is an honour for a man to cease from strife: but every fool will be meddling.

Prov 20:13 (KJV)

13Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread.

Psalms 62 and Proverbs 22 plus Psalms 130
These chapters reveal that those that receive the mercy of God are those that wait upon God out of genuine trust in God out of the fear of God that therein receives God’s mercy because they have shown mercy to others out of recognizing the greatness of God’s mercy to them. It also reveals that true power belongs to God and that the wicked that seek power and are in power only have the delusion they have power over people.
Ps 62:1-5 (KJV)

1To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David. Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.2He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.3How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence.4They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.5My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.


Ps 62:8-12 (KJV)

8Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.9Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity.10Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.11God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.12Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.

Prov 22:4-5 (KJV)

4By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life.5Thorns and snares are in the way of the froward: he that doth keep his soul shall be far from them.

Prov 22:19-21 (KJV)

19That thy trust may be in the LORD, I have made known to thee this day, even to thee.20Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge,21That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?

Ps 130:3-7 (KJV)

3If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?4But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.5I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.6My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning.7Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.

Ps 130:8 (KJV)

8And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

Acts 14 and 1 Chronicles 15 plus 2 Kings 18
In both of these chapters there is animal sacrifice made that accompanies the time of worship. In all three chapters there is examples of idolatrous worship and also in all three a turning away of idolatrous worship to genuine worship of the one only true and eternal GOD.

Acts 14:9-18 (KJV)

9The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed,10Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked.11And when the people saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in the speech of Lycaonia, The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men.12And they called Barnabas, Jupiter; and Paul, Mercurius, because he was the chief speaker.13Then the priest of Jupiter, which was before their city, brought oxen and garlands unto the gates, and would have done sacrifice with the people.14Which when the apostles, Barnabas and Paul, heard of, they rent their clothes, and ran in among the people, crying out,15And saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you that ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein:16Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways.17Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.18And with these sayings scarce restrained they the people, that they had not done sacrifice unto them.

1Chr 15:11-13 (KJV)

11And David called for Zadok and Abiathar the priests, and for the Levites, for Uriel, Asaiah, and Joel, Shemaiah, and Eliel, and Amminadab,12And said unto them, Ye are the chief of the fathers of the Levites: sanctify yourselves, both ye and your brethren, that ye may bring up the ark of the LORD God of Israel unto the place that I have prepared for it.13For because ye did it not at the first, the LORD our God made a breach upon us, for that we sought him not after the due order.


1Chr 15:25-27 (KJV)

25So David, and the elders of Israel, and the captains over thousands, went to bring up the ark of the covenant of the LORD out of the house of Obededom with joy.26And it came to pass, when God helped the Levites that bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, that they offered seven bullocks and seven rams.27And David was clothed with a robe of fine linen, and all the Levites that bare the ark, and the singers, and Chenaniah the master of the song with the singers: David also had upon him an ephod of linen.


2Kgs 18:3-6 (KJV)

3And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that David his father did.4He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan.5He trusted in the LORD God of Israel; so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor any that were before him.6For he clave to the LORD, and departed not from following him, but kept his commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses.
