Under the Sun–Vanity

Walking in Truth: called of GodWith our radio audience for 17 November 2019, we are continuing a study of “When First Things Come Second.” This is from the first chapter of Haggai. When we read and study from the Minor Prophets, it is like reading the “newspapers” of our own lives. When we consider it carefully, we find ourselves SO MUCH like they were in so many ways. We finish that study on this broadcast and we begin another study from the first chapter of Ecclesiastes. We find in that study that life UNDER THE SUN, though good and pleasant, has no real meaning apart from God. All is vanity when we leave God and the spiritual out of our lives!

When First Things Come Second

Walking in Truth: called of GodIt is always an interesting study to delve into the writings of the prophets. In the section of the Minor Prophets (minor ONLY because of the size of the scroll), many beautiful, challenging, and colorful word pictures are used. With our radio audience for 10 November 2019, we are finishing a study of Galatians 1, noting some lessons to learn from that good chapter. Then we begin a new study from the prophet Haggai. It was an interesting time that Haggai prophesied. It was the time often labeled as THE RESTORATION. There is a very powerful word picture used in the passage we study from Haggai 1.2-11. Haggai 1.5-6 speaks of PUTTING WAGES IN A BAG WITH HOLES IN IT. Putting wages in a bag with holes in it is NOT very wise. God’s people were not behaving with wisdom as their guide. They were in need of a prophet to help them do the right thing. You can study this passage with us by clicking
