Satan’s First Appearance

April 7, 2014 Leave a comment

Satan rose up against Israel and incited David to take a census of Israel (1 Chronicles 21:1, NIV).

This is much later than I expected. The word Satan is not used in the book of Genesis.

“Word of God” in the Old Testament

January 3, 2011 Leave a comment

This phrase appears only three times, in 1 Kings, as a prescriptive prophecy to King Rehoboam; 1 Chronicles, as a prescriptive prophecy to King David; and Proverbs.

The idea is that if God says it, then we should do it.

The challenge is that people are the medium of the message, so we need to discern the difference between a genuine word of God and a fraud.
