SUMMARY OF 2 CHRONICLES 15

The prophet Azariah told Asa that the Lord is with him when he is with God, but if he forsakes God, God will forsake him. Be strong, and do not give up for your work will be rewarded.

Asa took courage and removed the idols from the land. He repaired an altar to the Lord. Asa assembled all of his people and made thousands of sacrifices to the Lord. They entered into a covenant with the Lord to seek him with all their heart and soul. Those who refused this covenant were put to death. The Lord gave them rest.

Asa’s heart was fully committed to the Lord all his life. He returned all the silver and gold to God’s temple.

b) Good question. Unsure.

End Notes BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 3, Day 2: 2 Chronicles 15

When you draw near to God, he draws near to you. He does not hide from us. We are to actively look for God in our lives.

Yet, if you forsake God, He will forsake you.

Asa responds correctly and turns more towards God than ever before.

We give to God what He gives us since everything we have is from him.

The covenant was public and accountable. This was serious business. The people collectively sought God — very powerful, indeed.

BSF STUDY QUESTIONS LESSON 3, DAY 4: MATTHEW 3:11-12

9) The Holy Spirit is part of the Trinity sent to be with us always and guide us in our ways. According to Zondervan’s Illustrated Bible Dictionary, the Holy Spirit is the third person in the Trinity. He is God’s agent in creation, in the providential work of God in the moral sphere, history, and relationships, and a personal endowment. The Spirit is wise, has power and influence, and inspired the prophets. The Holy Spirit works in the lives of believers. If you are filled with the Holy spirit, you experience Christ living within.

John 15:26: The Holy Spirit is sent out from God to testify truth about Jesus.

John 16:13-14: The Spirit of Truth will guide you into all truth. He speaks to you and will tell you what is to come. He will bring glory to God by taking what is God’s and making it known to you.

Romans 8:9: Those who belong to Christ have the Holy Spirit within them. The Holy Spirit controls you.

2 Corinthians 13:14: The Holy Spirit is with you in fellowship.

CONCLUSIONS BSF STUDY QUESTIONS LESSON 3, DAY 4: MATTHEW 3:11-12

I never really thought of the Holy Spirit as a person before. I think of the Holy Spirit as a being that comes down upon us. Thinking of the Holy Spirit as a person to me lessens the power of the Holy Spirit because the Holy Spirit is way above humans. (Romans 6:3-4). Lots of references today so leave extra time to look everything up. Great look at the Holy Spirit in the Bible. Here’s a link to Zondervan’s Illustrated Bible Dictionary, if you are interested in this great resource today.

BSF STUDY QUESTIONS LESSON 3, DAY 4: MATTHEW 3:11-12

John baptized with repentance; whereas Jesus baptizes with himself by granting the Holy Spirit within.

John is humble, making it clear Christ is above himself.

Fire has always been a symbol of judgement in the Bible. Thus, Jesus is coming with blessings and with judgement for those who do not accept him. Fire also purifies in the Bible. Chaff is the part of the wheat that we not consume, and workers used a winnowing fork to separate the grain from the chaff.  (Isaiah 4:4Zechariah 13:9Malachi 3:2cf. Isaiah 1:25).

Too many Christians today forget that Jesus will judge at the Second Coming. He comes to save and to judge. Contact me with questions!
