    The Tribe Of Judah

    We come to the tribe of Judah, and the question was not what to include, but what to leave out.  Whole books have been written about different members of this tribe. How could I cover everything, the answer is I couldn’t, not everything.   Like the other tribes, God put a name in my spirit to write about.  I would have expected it to be either The Lord Jesus, or David, possibly one of the Kings of Judah. It wasn’t the name of a King that came to me, it was a Prince.   Other than Messianic prophecy, the first person in the tribe of Judah associated with a royal…

    The Tribe Of Issachar

    Judges 10:1-3 (ESV) 1 After Abimelech there arose to save Israel Tola the son of Puah, son of Dodo, a man of Issachar, and he lived at Shamir in the hill country of Ephraim.  2 And he judged Israel twenty-three years. Then he died and was buried at Shamir. 3 After him arose Jair the Gileadite, who judged Israel twenty-two years. Tola, the son of Puah, of the tribe of Issachar, judged Israel for twenty three years. The Bible says he rose to save Israel, and that he lived in Shamir, in the hill country of Ephraim. Other than the fact, that he rose after Abimelech, we know nothing more…

    25 Devotions – Day Twenty Four

    The Native: The Star Seed Genesis 26:4 4 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; Numbers 24:17 17 I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth. Scientists tell us, a star’s life begins with a gravitational collapse. Since nature reflects the spiritual, what collapse could occur…

    25 Devotions – Day Five

    The Native: More Than A List Of Names Day Five… Matthew 1:4 And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon; Have you ever noticed the two lists, one in Matthew, and the other in Luke? They are genealogies. According to Scofield, Matthew lists Joseph’s lineage, and Luke lists Mary’s family. Luke mentioning Joseph because he was her husband. Some may wonder why The Lord took time to recite them all. Others may have wanted it to be filled with information about the Infant Christ. The wonderful thing is, God intentionally made a place for what others may think as just a register. To Him, this is…

    25 Devotions- Day Four

    The Native: His First Words This is the continuing celebration of The Native, in words and pictures.   Matthew 3:15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now:for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. A child’s first words are huge. I would guess that every parent remembers them. We don’t know what The Lord Jesus’ first words were, each Gospel chooses a different phrase to introduce us to The Master’s Voice. In Matthew, He is talking to John The Baptist. Suffer in the original means allow. Jesus is saying, Allow this now, for we are called to fulfill all righteousness.…

    25 Devotions- Day Three

    The Native: In The Order Of His Course Luke 1:5-8 5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife [was] of the daughters of Aaron, and her name [was] Elisabeth. 6 And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless. 7 And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were [now] well stricken in years. 8 And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest’s office before God in the order of his course, He was “of the…

    25 Devotions – Day Two

    In The Days Of Herod/Hero This is our second post in our Bible Study “The Native”. We hope that you enjoy, and follow along with us, as we explore the greatest birth in the history of the world. Luke 1:1 1 Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us, This verse both refreshes and energizes me. It contains three words that are lacking from many parts of our culture. The phrase, “most surely believed among us,” reflects the conviction of the New Testament Church. Sadly, “most surely believed”, is noticeably absent from much of…

    25 Devotions – Day One

    In celebration of our Christmas Bible Study Devotional, we will share a devotion from The Native.  The Native is a very special combination of words and pictures, inspired by The Lord Jesus.  Today is our introduction to The Native … It examines the miraculous plan of God. The fact that the First Citizen Of Eternity became a citizen of Earth. He, whose innocence was so foreign to man, became The Son Of Man. We call it simply “The Native”. It will look at a combination of Scriptures. These include the first two chapters of Matthew and Luke, and the first chapter of John. Also the prophecies of His birth in…

    The Tribe Of Naphtali

    Joshua 20:7 7 And they appointed Kedesh in Galilee in mount Naphtali, and Shechem in mount Ephraim, and Kirjatharba, which is Hebron, in the mountain of Judah. Kedesh means Sanctum, or Holy Place, and Galilee means circle. Isn’t it wonderful, that The God who sits upon the circle of the Earth according to Isaiah 40:22, grew up in Galilee, the circle referenced in Isaiah 9:1). In the allotment of Zebulun and Naphtali. We talked about that aspect in the chapter on Tribe Of Zebulun. I bring it up here for a slightly different reason.  To talk about the circle that Naphtali, not Jesus, was birthed into.  About what looked, from…

    The Tribe Of Zebulun

    Genesis 49:13 13 “Zebulun shall dwell at the shore of the sea; he shall become a haven for ships, and his border shall be at Sidon. I think of the smell of the sea when I think of him. Initially this was because of the prophecy of Jacob.  I also think of Jesus, because Nazareth was in the region assigned to Zebulun and Naphtali.  Isaiah mentioned this, and so did Matthew.   Ironically, during his lifetime, most of what we know, has Zebulun tied to the land.  It makes me wonder if the prophecy God gave him, was tied to a desire of Zebulun.  Each of us has dreams we…
