bibleA Walk Through the Bible
Part 1 – Meet God

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. You alone are the LORD; You have made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth and everything on it, the seas and all that is in them, and You preserve them all. The host of heaven worships You.

He is the Rock, His work is perfect; for all His ways are justice, a God of truth and without injustice; righteous and upright is He. The LORD reigns, He is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed, He has girded Himself with strength. Surely the world is established, so that it cannot be moved. Your throne is established from of old; You are from everlasting.

Part 2 – Meet Sin

The eyes of the LORD are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good. Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one; there is none who understands; there is none who seeks after God. They have all turned aside; they have together become unprofitable; there is none who does good, no, not one.”

Man who is born of woman is of few days and full of trouble. Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me.

Part 3 – Meet the Savior

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.

Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth. Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.

Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. 

But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.

Part 4 – Meet Freedom

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away. Therefore comfort one another with these words.

    Flawless!

    1. Thanks Caressa! I had the idea for this last week, and I got goosebumps as I started compiling the Scriptures. The Word of God is indeed flawless!

  2. I just discovered your recorded feture! I LOVE this option!

    Sounds professional and draws the listener in to hear more.

    1. Glad you enjoyed that option. Memory took over in a few places and I reverted back to KJV. A distant friend of mine is the pianist in the background.

  3. Wow. This was really meaningful to me and a truly excellent post. Even though all the words are from the Bible, I know you worked to piece them all together as beautifully as you did. The transition from Psalm 43 to 1 Thessalonians 4 gave me chills.

    The audio piece was also a masterful touch. Did you record that yourself?

    Well done, friend. I love this.

    1. Thanks Camden. I was asked to prepare a short devotional for work one day last week, and I this is what I came up with. I got chills myself as I sat at my desk selecting the different verses. I was absolutely overwhelmed by the continuity of Scripture and the grace of God.

      I recorded the audio using my laptop and a USB mic. A distant friend of mine is the pianist in the background.
