Tuesday – Psalms 147-150

1.  Psalm 147 gives us many reasons to praise the Lord.  But what gives delight to Him?  See 147:10,11.

2.  Note who praises the Lord in Psalm 148. How do the many parts of God’s creation praise him and give him glory?  What thoughts does that give you about how we can praise him without actually using words?

3.  See Psalm 149:6.  What is the double-edged sword with which may praise the Lord as well as take care of God’s enemies?   If you’re not sure, check Hebrews 4:12.

Monday – Psalms 144-146

1.  We finish the Bible’s songbook with hymns of praise!  In Psalm 144, David praises the Lord who will win the battles for him.  What battles do we fight, for which we call on the Lord for his strength and help

2.  Psalm 145 praises the Lord for the blessings that he gives to all people, not justIsrael.  Find the verses that show this, including two verses that are often used as a prayer at meal time.

3.  Psalm 146 reminds us about whom we should trust for all things.  Why doesn’t it work to trust in rulers or governments?  See 146:3,4.

Saturday – Revelation 22

1.   We find a new Garden of Eden in 22:1-7.  In the original garden, Adam and Eve were barred from eating of the tree of life.  What do we learn about it now?  “No longer will there be any curse.”  What is that referring to?   Remember what brought about the curse in the first Garden of Eden

 2.  What does the Lord warn us not to do in 22:18-19?   Think of examples where people have done both things today.

3.    When the Lord ends his entire Holy Book, what is the last thing he wants us to know?   Why would Jesus say “soon” when it has been almost 2,000 years since he promised this?  Does Jesus’ coming inspire you with fear or with joy?

 Friday – Revelation 21

1.  The last two chapters of Revelation are a joy!! And our blessed future is easy to understand, even if it is still in the form of symbolic visions.  What comfort does 21:1-7 give you in the face of dealing with the death of your loved ones?

 2.  John sees a hugeHolyCity, the New Jerusalem. How big is it?  See the footnote to 21:16.   What name is given to the city?  See 21:9.  This shows us that above all, the city is the gathering of all believers.  What is written on the gates?  What is written on the foundation?  Why?  See Ephesians 2:20.

3.  Why do the people of ancient times shut the gates of city at night?  What does 21:25 tell you about the gates of this city?  What does this tell you about one of the blessings of this city?
