TAKE TIME: November 10-15, 2014 Assignment

Introduction: The time of exile is over! Those who have been held captive in a foreign country for 70 years and were returning to their own land needed to be taught their rich history from the time of Adam to the present. Just like God had Moses record a second giving of His covenant law with the people in Deuteronomy, He also had someone - most probably Ezra the priest - record the Jewish history similar to what had been recorded by Samuel and his successors in II Samuel, I Kings, and II Kings. When this history reaches the kingdom period, the books of the chronicles only covers the nation of Judah through the kingly line of David since he was promised an eternal kingdom. Also, Israel did not return as a separate nation. This week we will only read genealogical information but read carefully to find familiar names.

  • Monday - I Chronicles 1:1-34
  • Tuesday - I Chronicles 1:35-54
  • Wednesday -  I Chronicles chapter 2

Prayer Journal (ACTS)
  • Adoration - Praise God that He is the Everlasting Father! He knows each one of us by name.
  • Confession - Ask God to reveal hidden sin in your life and then confess it.
  • Thanksgiving - Thank God for any answers to your prayers.
  • Supplication - What are your prayer requests this week? List them for future reference so that you can see how God answers.

Search the Scriptures

Look for references for each of the following:
  • Promises that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?
  • References that either refer to or infer something about future events.
  • What does this passage teach about Jesus?
  • Commandments that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?

Putting the Word into Action

Family heritage is important. God commands us to honor our parents if we are adults and to obey them if we are children. So many today do not respect their parents as they should. Not everyone has a godly heritage but everyone should be able to find some way of honoring the Lord's command! Find ways to honor your Heavenly Father by honoring your parents in some way, even if they have already departed this life.
