"northern kingdom" Discussed on The Bible Recap
"Today. We open with valley vision and a stick sign act ezekiel's vision in the valley of dry bones. Probably his twenty minutes of fame. This is what he's most known for. In fact. I've heard probably half a dozen sermons preached on this using it to illustrate a variety of different things like god making dead people into a powerful army or how people have the power to speak life into things but lots of them have nothing to do with what the texas actually teaching here and some of them are even biblically inaccurate. So today we're gonna make sure we keep our eyes on the text and the context to see what god is actually communicating to us about himself and his plan ezekiel has a vision of a bunch of dry bones in a valley. As far as the i can see. There's nothing femurs and fabulous then. Through ezekiel god commands the bones. To live this is god's command not ezekiel's we can hear it in verses four through six where god says prophesy over these bones and say to them oh dry bones here the word of the lord thus says the lord god to these bones behold i will cause breath to enter you and you shall live and i will lay send us upon you and will cause flesh to come upon you and cover you with skin and put breath in you and you shall live and you shall know that i am the lord so we can see that god is the one who issued the command and god is the one who breathes life into them and yes of course we know god could have done it without ezekiel. God doesn't need ezekiel for this. But he loves him and he's using him. So ezekiel gets the joy of being part of god's process in this vision god says this vision represents the twelve tribes the people of judah and israel. He will give them new life and bring them back to their land. Error three things. I find interesting about this story burst. It connect suspect to god's original creation of mankind in the garden of eden. Back in genesis. Two god created adam out of the dust of the ground and breathe life into him to god. Is recreating things here. Second the word used for breath here is the hebrew word ruak which is also translated more often as spirit and third. Did you notice that. God doesn't command the bodies to breathe. That seems like it would make more sense right. Instead he commands the breath to enter the bodies. I think there's some spiritual symbolism for us in there somewhere then. God tells ezekiel to perform a sign. Act here's the plan. We'll take a stick and write judah and company on it to represent the southern kingdom. Then he'll right. Joseph and every company on another stick representing the northern kingdom. Then he'll tie the sticks together like a law firm merger except it'll actually be the restoring of all that has been broken relational e in the three hundred and fifty years since the kingdom divided. This is an especially big deal because it's been a hundred and fifty years since the northern kingdom was overthrown by the assyrians so it's possible that the newly exiled people of the southern kingdom think that the northern kingdom has been destroyed entirely. But this sign act. Lets them know that. God has preserved a remnant from the northern tribes to. They get their own stick and he'll bring them all back their land and set one shepherd over them. A king from the line of david and the remnant of israel will be restored reunited and repentant because god himself will be among them will sanctify them and he will live out his eternal covenant of peace with them in chapter thirty eight. We meet a king named dog. I'm gonna pronounce his name. Go so there's no mistaking whether i'm saying god or god so go rules a nation named meg except no one knows who he is or where this is and even the details ezekiel gives us about him. Make things more uncertain for instance. His army is comprised of people from all over the place so that doesn't help us narrow down his location. What do we make of this mysterious king and kingdom lots of commentators. Think ezekiel has invented this. King as an amalgam of all the powerful nations that have opposed. God's people throughout history ezekiel even uses a lot of the same imagery. He used earlier with tara and egypt. So go seems to be an archetype. That represents god's enemies for that reason and the fact that god twice tells us that this will happen in the latter days. Most commentators think this is a yet to be fulfilled prophecy about the end. Times ezekiel says. Some peculiar things will happen in the future that involved both gauguin and the restored remnant they'll be dwelling securely than go will show up to attack them. Why why why is god bringing this big bad enemy against his people. Fortunately in verse sixteen he tells us why god says in the latter days i will bring you against my land that the nation's may know me when through you. Oh gloag. I vindicate my holiness. Before there is god. Says he's doing this. To remind all the nations around israel not to mess with him or his people by demonstrating his dominance over a powerful enemy. The less powerful enemies won't risk attacking. God's people clever so when go shows up on the scene god will send an earthquake and fire and hail and pestilence and mass confusion or the people of jobs army accidentally kill each other. We saw this happened before in judges seven and of course. God closes this with his traditional. Then they will know that. I am the lord in chapter thirty nine. God lays it on even thicker for job. He says he's not just going to show up at the site of jobs army and attack them but he'll also through fire on meg their homeland. And this is where my god shot up hears. God says israel will take all the weapons go was going to use against them and recycle them into fuel. Not only that but israel will also get the spoils of a war. They didn't even have to fight. Who is this guide. Who takes the enemies efforts to destroy his people and turns them to bless his people instead. It's like joseph said in genesis fifty after running into the brothers who sold him into slavery years earlier humid evil against me but god meant for good. God doesn't land on zero. God doesn't shift into neutral. This isn't him working out everything so that it's perfectly fair. Nothing about this fair. This is absolutely undeserved generosity and unmerited favor nothing god's people have done has earned them anything but eternal separation from him but he doesn't just say i forgive you. Now leave me alone. He says here's a new heart to love me with. And here's my spirit to empower your obedience and here's the eternal kingdom you're going to inherit you guys. No one is like him.

"Today's chapters are dark and graphic. It's not exactly light reading but in every heavy paragraph in every dark chapter there still something we learn about god. It's true on these pages and it's true in our own stories to before we jump in just know that i'm going to do my best to make this appropriate for all our listeners. The bible itself is graphic enough. So i'll try to go easy on explaining things in detail. Chapter twenty three is one big metaphor. God is talking about two women but this isn't about women at all. The women represent two cities samaria which is the capital city of the northern kingdom of israel and jerusalem which is the capital city of the southern kingdom of judah and we've seen many times where y'all way has portrayed his relationship with his people as a marriage and anytime people wonder off to other gods he compares it to adultery. He uses a picture of intimate betrayal to show. What's happening on a spiritual level so while they're definitely was sexual sin happening in both samaria and jerusalem. That's only a fraction of the broader point. Chapter twenty three is trying to make the major point is the people of these cities have turned their eyes away from you. Alway- who has always provided for them and protected them and instead they've looked to other nations to save them they paid them tribute protection and as they've grown more familiar with them and tried to earn their favour. They've also become enamored with their gods and worshiped them instead. I seven is talking about samaria and it says she defiled herself with all the idols of everyone after whom she listed it started with lust and it ended with idol worship. Sin always wants more from us. It's never satisfied. We're hard wired to worship something. Whatever we spend our time thinking about and fixating on whatever we looked to as our source of joy and fulfillment it will eventually get our hearts all along. God has been begging them to repent but even when their sin and idolatry isn't satisfying to them anymore they still don't turn back to god. They doubled down on idolatry and even though jerusalem witnesses areas demise. She doesn't learn anything from it. In fact she doubles down on the doubling down and the whole process of more more more actually becomes a chore to the two cities. They're abused and unloved by their lovers. I forty-three says they were worn out by adultery. Idols are exhausting. But god says it's too late for them to repent. Now he calls ezekiel to judge them. They will drink the cup of his wrath. They will finally bear the penalty for their sins. One important thing to note about the books of the prophets is how we have to treat their use of metaphor. Remember how he talked about the fact that the books of wisdom like psalms and proverbs aren't necessarily giving us promises or prophecies while the books of prophecy have their own unique lens as well. They aren't always literal. They all involve a lot of metaphorical language and hyperbole. And this is just another example of why we have to read things in context and read them as they're intended to be read. That's why for the most part we don't look at them with a microscope. We zoom out to see the big picture. The story is telling us it doesn't mean there might not be microscopic meaning there and it doesn't mean the bible isn't true literally it just means the bible is always literal sometimes. It's metaphorical like yesterday. When god compared the people of jerusalem to draw and said he's going to burn them up. It doesn't necessarily mean they're going to die by fire. The books of prophecy have away of humbling us because they refused to let us be controlling about all the details. Moving onto chapter twenty four to fully appreciate what's happening in the first half of this chapter. We have to take ourselves out of the modern age where we can watch. Something happened on the other side of the world in real time. In ezekiel's day news took weeks or even months to travel from one nation to their next door neighbor. So ezekiel being nearly nine hundred miles away from jerusalem when he's an exile in babylon isn't getting a notification from cnn telling him babylon has laid siege to jerusalem. God is telling him personally. And god says it's happening right now. Talk about having a trusted news source but then god flips to the cooking channel. He's bringing up that cauldron and meet we first talked about in chapter. Eleven god's seems to be comparing israel to the choicest cuts of meat. But as they're being prepared it becomes clear that they've all got e. coli for lack of a better illustration and that not only does the meat itself apt to be discarded. But it's even ruined the cauldron to and it has to be tossed into the fire as well in the midst of all this as the meat is being removed. it's dripping with blood and israel just leaves it out like no big deal. This is just contaminated an unclean. And it's out here for everyone to see an encounter. No thanks the point of this metaphor seems to be that israel isn't just ignoring god's laws but that they aren't even embarrassed or ashamed about it. They feel no remorse. Their hearts are hard. Ezekiel's heart is not hard. But god's about to put him through the ringer nonetheless. Once again he gets an assignment to feel the pain of the situation. Israel is about to go through. God tells him that his wife is going to die. And he's only allowed to mourn. In private the ancient jews had very detailed prolonged ways of mourning. The dead but god is telling him to disregard the traditions and of course this catches the attention of the exiled because it certainly strange behavior but it opens up the conversation where ezekiel lets them know about the tragedy in jerusalem and he tells them to respond in the same way because ultimately they don't have a right to grieve since this is all the result of their own sins. This is what they've been moving toward all along. As they disregarded god's warnings every step of the way at the end of today's reading god tells ezekiel that someday when jerusalem finally falls a fugitive will come to let ezekiel know. That prophecy has been fulfilled. Then ezekiel won't be mute anymore. Wait east still mute. Than how has he been prophesying all this time but a pen in this will come back to it in a few days. Today's god shot was a challenge. Honestly some days are harder than others. It wasn't until my third trip through the text that something jumped out at me. And here's how. I connected it a few years ago when i lost my sister to cancer the only people i wanted to talk to or other people who had lost someone to cancer they understood my loss in a way i couldn't yet understand it myself. In god's sovereign timing. I've been on the receiving end of the compassion of those. Who have gone before me. And it makes me so grateful that god in his great love and compassion gave judah a prophet who understood her pain. How kind of. God ezekiel lost his wife right before. The people of judah lost everything. Is it easy to be. The ezekiel to bear the first burden of pain alone. No it's horrible but nothing in. His words here indicates that he was bitter about it. He knew there was a greater purpose in his loss. What he probably didn't know is that his purpose extended far beyond commiserating with israel and giving them a proper understanding of the situation at hand he was also imaging christ the one who bears our burdens to people twenty five hundred years in the future. He shows us a glimpse of god. The son who knows exactly how hard it is to be human. Jesus aches on our behalf he mourns and greaves with us. All and still keys. Wear the joy is not. Everyone's quiet time looks the same. Sometimes they aren't quiet at all. I actually referred to my quiet time as priority time.

"You give us just your your response to the president's question from warsaw. Well god bless him first of all for making his speech. I mean i. I just i just loved that. The here's my take. unfortunately today A lot of christians are christians in and i put in quotes They are not practicing christians. They don't understand. Christianity they don't understand the message of christ and therefore they're simply christians on paper but they're not really strong believers. We have that in almost every faith and islam. You see that in judaism you see that and so on so forth. These are people that are more worldly and and the west can't stand up but the west has lost. Its course if you don't know where you come from. How could you know where you need to go. Essentially christians don't know where they originally came from. That's why i pushed so hard to elevate the true. Christians are the the the christians that currently reside in the middle east. At least the ones that. I've been standing with the faith and being persecuted for their faith to show true. Christianity truly is and say. Look you know as christians as believers in christ. We need to understand. Exactly what the word of god says. What what we need to stand for. For example i use it all the time from proverbs. Twenty four that. If somebody is jailed or get him going to be put to death. We have a duty to go out there and rescue them. We have a duty to go out there and save them. We have to stand with our brothers and sisters who are being persecuted. But when i talked to say westerners whether they're from europe or from here from our country oftentimes they kind of look at me and say well. It's not happening in my backyard. So i understand yes. My heart goes to them. But there's not much. I can do like well you know. That's a cop out because your duty is to stand by those that are being

"By isaiah is primarily concerned with warning. God's people about their sins. Today he launches into the first fifteen chapters of prophetic speeches or oracles to a bunch of pagan nations. And we'll find out why he starts out with babylon which is one of the ruling powers of the ancient world. They're the ones who will take the people of judah into captivity jerusalem falls and about one hundred years and in today's reading. God pronounces eight prophetic judgment on them for the thing they haven't done yet. God's sovereignty shows up right off the bat in this scenario in thirteen three he refers to babylon as my consecrated ones. As far as they're concerned they have not consecrated themselves to yali. No sir but the point of this terminology is to show that god has consecrated them or set them apart for his own purposes. He has a plan to use them and their sinful ways to work out his long term plans to bless his people initially through discipline but then through restoration. Babylon will think they're doing their own thing. But they'll be fulfilling god's plan and the fact that it's written out more than one hundred years in advance serves as evidence that the idea didn't originate with them then even though god is using their sin to accomplish his will as he does with all sin he still punishes it as he does with all sin so he tells them how they will eventually be overtaken in return for what they did to his people. This is the kind of big big picture sovereignty that it's hard to wrap our minds around. Sometimes it's the kennedy thing that can feel threatening to our ideas of self sovereignty and it's okay to wrestle with that but what i always come back to is that ultimately i'm really glad i'm not self sovereign. I know my heart to well to wish that on anyone so bad things you're about to happen. I to judah at the hands of babylon and then to babylon for what they did to judah. They'll both be destroyed for babylon. The end of the story is judgment and desolation. But for god's people the end of the story is restoration and fulfillment the people of babylon which probably represents all the ruling powers of the world will eventually attach themselves to the peoples of the restored israel and offer themselves as servants. That's how juxtaposed things will be from where they are now. Oh how the tables will turn chapter. Fourteen paints this story in an interesting way remember. How prophecy can often speak to or more stories at the same time and how it can also speak truth about things that have happened in the past. Some scholars believe that's what we're seeing here in fourteen twelve to fifteen. What's for certain. Is that isaiah speaking. About what will happen to the king of babylon who will lose all his power and position too arrogant attempts to exalt himself. What's possible is that isaiah is paralleling. The king situation to the story of a high ranking angelic being someone referred to as day star or star of the dawn in most translations some translations listed as lucifer. That's the latin translation of the english. Word were day star or star of the dawn. Either way it's a common noun not a proper name regardless what you call him. This angelic being decided he wanted to be god instead of serve god and that's when he was cast down from heaven. There's some possible. Overlap between this passage and ezekiel twenty eight. Eleven through seventeen which seems to point to the same idea. We'll post a link in the show notes with a bit more info on this. But it's something. I hold with a really open hand moving on from babylon. We continue with oracles against four more nations. Today next up is a syria. The ones who destroyed the northern kingdom and mount a pretty severe attack against judah too. So god is going to punish them and as got his crushing them. The yoke and the burden they've placed on israel will be broken effectively freeing israel. Then we move onto felicita. I say reminds the philistines that got as only promised to preserve and protect his people so even if they happen to see a reprieve from oppression. It won't last as ahah says. God's heart is set on his people and he'll be a refuge to them onto moab their oracle gets two whole chapters and has a distinctly different tone from the oracles for the other nations for instance. We repeatedly see god morning over the destruction of moab this is almost certainly because the mo abides are distant relatives of the israelites. Ruth the moa bite was king. David's great grandmother. And david left his parents with the king of moab wiz live was being threatened regardless these distant relatives have to be judged for their sends like anyone else. It's always interesting to see. God mourn over having to punish sin god is a real person with a real personality. And he's multifaceted just like anyone else though. His characteristics never contradict each other. The moa bites will mourn over their own destruction. Shaving their heads putting on sackcloth and they'll seek refuge in judah. I had to be honest. I kind of chuckled. When in the midst of all their grief we came across this verse mourn utterly stricken for the raisin cakes of cure harissa. Sorry isaiah. I'll mourn for a lot of things but raising cakes are not on the list. Today's final oracle is for damascus. a city in syria. The prophecy opens by saying it will become a heap of ruins and even though it exists today it was conquered at least three times over the next four hundred years and destroyed at least once but god says there will be a remnant here. Why does damascus get a remnant when they're not part of his family. There's something interesting going on here and it helps if we know two things first that damascus shares a border with the northern kingdom of israel. And second that. The northern kingdom of israel was often collectively referred to as ephraim you may recall that ephraim is one of the ten tribes in the northern kingdom in this oracle ephraim and damascus are kind of blurred together the northern kingdom has gotten so far off the path that they've effectively merged with this pagan nation despite that god has mercy on them by preserving remnant who will turn to worship. Y'all way again. My god shot came from the spots. Where god mourned over the destruction of moab in fifteen five is heart cries out for moab and in sixteen nine. He says i will drench you with my tears. It's incredible to see his tender heartedness toward a pagan nation. That has rejected him. Most people don't expect to see compassion like this in the old testament but his character has always been the same god. The father god the son and god the spirit are not only consistent throughout eternity but within themselves as well yesterday today and forever keys where the joy is one of my favorite things i do.

The book of the prophet is hit after hit. I mean so good so couple things to keep in mind overall. When you're looking at the book of the prophet isaiah it is both before the exile and during the exile right now. Is he's primarily a prophet to the south right is primarily a profit to the kingdom of judah. He also has spoken a number of times. We've heard this to northern kingdom of israel while it still existed but he primarily is a profit to the south and so the kingdom in the north is going to be destroyed as we note the thousand times noted by syria but the kingdom in the south is going to be destroyed or exiled by babylon and we got our first introduction to babylon in chapter. Thirteen where here is an oracle concerning babylon. This is what isaiah the son of mos saw. This is going to happen in the future..

"This world every day of our lives in jesus name we pray amen in the name of the father and of the son of the holy spirit eman okay. Gosh you guys chapter nine of isaiah. What how incredible is now okay. Couple of quick things this. What's the context. Context is in the beginning of chapter. Nine is yes. There's going to be the destruction of israel right. There's going to be. The syrians are coming in. And they're coming to the north and they're going to destroy it in the former time he brought into contempt villeneuve's ebola and the land of naphtali red so that happened destruction of the northern kingdom of israel but in the latter time you'll make glorious the way of the sea the land beyond the jordan galilee of the nations or another way to say it is the galilee of the gentiles and then it goes into little poem. The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. Those dwelt in the land of deep darkness on them has light shined now. You might have heard this before because matthew's gospel. This is how matthew not begins his gospel bitten chapter two of matthew's gospel. This is where he's rocking it. He jesus comes after some of the jordan and goes into the wilderness to be tempted by satan for forty days and these fasting and the whole nine yards. Where does he go from here from there. He goes up to the land of zeppelin and the land of naphtali. Incredible because jesus is the fulfillment of what isaiah is writing here in chapter nine. Jesus goes up to the land of zeppelin of napoli now some geography stuff the land. It's excellent and land of naphtali. those are the member. Two of the twelve tribes of israel that made up the entire kingdom of israel and then to the tribes that made up the northern ten tribes that made up the northern kingdom of israel. When assyria comes in. They're coming from the north. What do they do. They take out the first tribes. I write because that's your coming from the north and the first tribes in the north are naturally zevulun so they're the first to be destroyed and brought into desolation essentially not even exile. I mean it's exit. There are destroyed completely.

"Hey bible readers. I'm terribly kabul. And i'm your host for the bible. Recap congratulations today. We've finished our eighteenth book of the bible. So let's talk about it. Shona was a prophet. Who lived during the time of king jerry too but king in the northern kingdom of israel. This is around seven fifty bc. Some people regard this book as allegory. And not as historical fact but one important thing to note. It's almost certainly not a parable. Because one of the characteristics of parables that they have anonymous characters not real humans with names whereas jona is mentioned by name in both the book of second kings and by christ himself in matthew twelve and on top of that. It's.

"Can i confess cats I don't spend a lot of time in the minor prophets. Yeah now and i think most of us are with. I've read them and let's talk about. Why like why not. That's a great question. i think i'm just. I don't know at think i'd navigate towards what i know. And here's familiar. Yeah you can read. You can read these informants eight minutes but if you want to know them like you need to be read in deuteronomy even amos like just chronicles. You're all over them up. Sure yeah really really understand. Yeah context. You're right we didn't get that context by just reading. Just got to keep the other the only thing that just super intimidates me. I don't know like i know. Not all people feel this way. But i feel i feel ill equipped from like a geographical historical. Like to know like okay. The northern kingdom. It's like i'm supposed to know that staff but it's hard to remember like the cultural context that each of the who are they prophesying to win because the canonical order of scripture is not the chronological order of even when these things took place like kind of the final events of the old testament were esther and then as am i like. That's kind of what happened at the end of the actual timeline so these major minor prophets are interspersed kind of the second half of the events of the old estimate and so that extra layer of like coup to whom and like win. And then instead. I don't know like to like maybe to free myself to go like okay. You know what read it. Yes what have you learned about. God here yes you know. And it doesn't mean don't take it and don't understand the context. That's you're right julia. That's super important. But i think that we are just so you're right. I think that probably ninety percent of our listeners would agree the minor. Prophets are not where we hang out because in there. There's so there's so much that we're missing if we're not there and it's such a just laughing at the sentence i'm about to say because i realized how absurd it sounds. There's such a good companion to the rest of the bible. Yeah into the age of the right read the minor prophets in light of the rest of scripture and to read the rest of scripture in light of the minor prop. It all works together. I think if i were to give myself and any anyone else who aspires to just know god's word and know god's heart and continue to study i think the biggest piece of advice other than just like just opener. Bibles and start is to just be patient because there is value to sitting down and reading things in one fell swoop. There's also value in really meditating in you. Know in marinating in passages there's value in these old testament books and in the new testament and it is a lot of a lot of word. There are a lot of words a lot of concepts and endless amount of things for us to learn about god and ourselves and history and it takes a lifetime does which is actually kind of free..
Canaan Unconquered - Rachel Havrelock
"And kinda interested in talking about the person joshua. He's the title character of this book and he himself from my understanding of scholarly work on biblical criticism or otherwise. He himself has a story like an origin story. That some people think is kind of a retrospection where like after the fact. He's put into the torah in a way that he may not have always been there. And what i'm referring to is specifically. His glory story is that he's one of the two folks in the twelve spies story that goes into the promised land and says This is great all the other ten folks. All land is terrible. Joshua caleb are on the good side that god likes and because it's the land that they're supposed to go to am. I right in my understanding of that. How scholars look at that person joshua and to what extent to we learn more about him in talking about the book that's named after him. Joshua indeed has a book named after him but is one of the flatter hand more hollow biblical characters. I mean for readers. Go in sequence so you know redo romney in which moses in vary tragic psychological terms wrestles with his impending death. And you know even with the existential reality of death itself. so we're going through it moses psyche and when we can turn out of the penza out of the five books of moses when we opened the book of joshua we have an entirely flat character. You know joshua is really characterized by his obedience and interestingly enough has no title right once called the servant of god is not labeled a profit is not labeled a judge is not labeled a king. I mean we get the news of general because he leads these battles but he doesn't even have a title biblical literature does have great literature and just have complex characters. Josh was not one of them. And you can't really do. A lot of psychological depth with an icon in joshua right becomes an icon of this army of this ancient near right to really kind of like a strobe of what i would call. Ancient national is now. I believe that the book of joshua is ultimately synthesized by a group of editors that we call the or novelists they are the ones that are also very smart editors so joshua ends up becoming a kind of a tool that the nommik editors really use to kinda. We've eras together and also to contain a kind of perfect model right. They wanna leader in their language. Who neither the left nor the right right who keeps torah. You know kind of the cuff at all times. And so they give joshua authority by putting him back the times of most read someone who experienced the whole exodus and even while being a member of this desert generation right the generation of the liberated slaves joshua and his spy buddy caleb right are portrayed is the only two who believe in going to war in this land. So i think that's right. I think the shooter anonymous create joshua to be an icon of the kind of unity to which they aspire and one more piece that all add to your question about joshua and caleb who again are depicted is these faithful spies who go against the will of their generation. I love it kinda that the liberated slaves don't want to go to war. I feel like we haven't done enough to really like reclaim that biblical antiwar position expressed by that generation. But you know. John lewis show like i said he's a. He's a tutoring nommik creation. But there's a lot of northern stuff going on with joshua and caleb is a southern figure just as these editors could really say we've always been at war with canaanites. Their system could also absorb later alliances. So kayla who. This southern figure is a canoe. He's a kennedy and the candidates are ultimately a group that gets absorbed under the tribe of judah the twelve tribes structure is very good at pointing to those people who are on the outside who jumped. Don't join the alliance and saying those e mites those canaanites those jebusites there are enemies. But it's also good at absorbing groups that might join the alliance at their own pace and saying. Oh well that's caleb. He's the head of the kennedy clan and that's a sub family of judah so so both things are possible for trying to account for political alliances. Can we situated some of what you're talking about in some sense of historical time to understand sort of when the actual events that are being responded to her happening versus the time where the story is set. What's going on geopolitically. And the time of the israelites when they are making all these alliances. And then if i understand the approximate timeframe here they're basically writing and rewriting these stories that are functionally taking place around five hundred years earlier. Right i mean the so. It almost becomes like their writing and rewriting and massaging this almost like mythic prehistory. It's not just like they're telling a story from fifty years ago differently. They're telling a story from five hundred years ago differently. I'm just curious if you could give us some sense of what was actually going on in in their world at that time that was motivating them to do all this so yes. Speaking about time wine this is the kind of thing. Bible scholars go to conferences to fight of out. So let me kind of breakdown this picture together with a time line let me start somewhere with is a very important piece of poetry and it's important because because of how it serves as a historical in and that's song of deborah and the song of jabra with we believe based on its grammar and syntax is one of the oldest texts in the bible and some people even speak about the year twelve hundred bc. Jabra sings about a war and she sings that some tribes came and fought in the war in some sat home so she disparages the tribes who sat home and she sings the praises of the tribes who k. That's very important to me because it shows that the success or failure of a given tribe in war depended upon their allies. Were so we see major major motivation for these processes of consolidation. Many scholars have shown how end the nine eight century. B c e you've got these policies of consolidating clans in schreiber's into something that looks like a pro donation. This is happening in the region. And it's about war you know. Because if you're national formation right if or if you're a bunch of tribes and you've got a consolidated federation of people's you're gonna lose but then we get you know eighth century b. c. e. the rise of empires in particular syria and the threat of assyria marching. You know or the egyptian empire has its second wind around this time. It's that process. That i think gets people thinking we've got come up. You know with a larger scale organization in army. And so josh. Shaw gives this army which is kind of being configured in real time it gives this army kind of heroic prehistory behind which people can march. And so it means you know that it works and doesn't work because the syrian army takes out the northern kingdom the kingdom of israel in seven twenty two but ends up sparing the kingdom of

The northern kingdom became very prosperous the king of the northern kingdom said. Hey guys we got a problem. If people start going back to jerusalem to the temple they're going to realize there's there's something more here there's something not right with this and we can't have him realizing that that there's something not right with this so we need to do something so they can a conspiracy and they said you know back in sinai. It was moses who was committing the conspiracy and it was era who is committing the truth and we need to set up golden calves and we need to go worship the golden calves and makes sacrifices at the gold gas because that's the true religion errand was telling the truth was moses who was the conspiracy theorist and so in the northern kingdom they believe the conspiracy was the truth of the truth was the lie and amos and others went up there and said guys repent.

Where's my mother would say Isaiah? Chapter nine, verse six As a 96 says for to us, a child is born to us A son is given And the government will be on his shoulders and he will be called wonderful counselor. Mighty God Everlasting Father Prince of Peace. The increase of his government and peace. There will be no end he will reign on David's throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and for ever, the zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish. This. This is the reading of God's word. Thanks Be to God. Now I am going to teach you from this text because we're starting a little miniseries entitled and he shall be called. We're going to look into the names of Jesus and see what incredible truth. We find their truth that literally changes our life if we allow it to There's a lot of names of Jesus in this text. But this is what's called prophetic writing. This is the writing of Isaiah, who was a prophet of God. A profit was simply a person that God spoke to his people through and some of these profits. Their speeches were written down, and some of those found the way and description because the holy Spirit inspired them. And made them God's word to us. And the book of Isaiah is such a text says Dive into Isaiah. Chapter seven, verse one When a has this is our main character. The scent of Jonathan the son of you. Zia was king of Judah. So there are two kingdoms that Kendra visuals divided. The Northern Kingdom is Israel. The Southern kingdom is Judah A has is the king of the Southern Kingdom. Judah, whose capital was Jerusalem. When he was the king of Judah King resin of our arms or Syria and Peca, son of Rome Ally, a king of Israel. That's the Northern kingdom marched up to fight against Jerusalem, but they could not overcome or overpower Jerusalem. Okay, so Judah has never been Attacked before first time in Judah's history that an enemy has come against and it's not just one enemy. It's two enemies. It's Israel and Iran who have joined forces and they've come, but they were not able to overpower Jerusalem. So what they did was they laid siege around the city, and they didn't let anyone in or anyone out. Isaiah. Knows that a has is contemplating making an alliance with the king of a Syria the most powerful army in the world At the time. He's scared of these two armies. So he thinks I'll go into cahoots with a Syria. They'll protect me, and then we'll be fine. Isaiah wants him instead to trust God instead. Trust the king of Assyria. And so the question that he's going to ask in this text is Who are you going to trust? Who are you going to trust? It's the same question we have at Christmas time. It's the question that Jesus demands us to ask today. Who are you going to trust? Who are you going to trust? Let's continue reading Verse two. Now the House of David was told that's Jerusalem. Has Arum has allied itself with every, um that's another name for Israel, the northern kingdom, So the hearts of a has and his people were shaken as the trees of the forest are shaken by the wind. He was scared to death. He's shaking. He's so scared. He's understandably concerned. Because when Jerusalem, which was built up on a mountain was sieged It had a very limited food supply and a very limited water supply. They could not last for long. So it has decided one day just on his own to go up to the upper pool, which was their main source of drinking water just to see how much was left to get a feel for. How long make it last. What he didn't realize is that God was preparing an encounter for him there with Isaiah, One of ideas. Son's first three. And the Lord said to Isaiah, Go out. You and your son share. Just shoot. Here's our first boy. Write that name down share. Just superb. The Lord said, Isaiah Go out. You and your son should hear Josh Shoob to meet a has at the end of the Ecuador of the upper pool on the road to the Washington's field. Here's what I want you to say to him, Isaiah, Be careful. Underline these words. Be careful. Keep calm And don't be afraid. Do not lose heart because of these two smoldering Stubbs of firewood. Look out, God described these two armies. They perceive themselves to be flaming infernos. But God says they're a flaming in For most. They're just too burned out logs with a little ember still glowing. Far as God was concerned. That's how he viewed them. In other words, they're threatening to take you down. But God says I've already got things. Motion that will completely wiped them out. They're not going to win. Now. Here comes the lesson of share. Just Shoob. Each child has a lesson. Here comes the lesson of share. Just tube. If you do not stand firm in your what faith you will not stand at all. It's about faith. It's about trust all along. The choice belongs to has. Will you trust God? Or Will you trust a person? I know you're need A has. I know you're scared. I know there is a huge obstacle in your way. But who you gonna trust? Are you gonna choose me? Are you gonna choose him? By the way? If you do not stand firm by trusting me, you will not stand it all look at verse 10 again. The Lord spoke to has asked the Lord your God for a sign. Whether in the deepest depths or in the highest tights. Here's what usually happens with people. God tells him something in his word. They think, you know, I think that's right. I think I want to trust him. And this is it. Then we pray this God give me a sigh. Just give me a sign. If you make it absolutely obvious to me that I'll trust you. That's faith, right?

Judgment is Coming (Zephaniah 1:18)
"Jeff. Anaya chapter one verse eighteen neither silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them on the day of the wrath of the lord in the fire of his jealousy all the earth shall be consumed for full and sudden in he will make of all the inhabitants of the earth hits. It's hard to imagine a more sobering. Humbling verse then zephenia. One eighteen at the end of chapter. Where verse after verse after verse talking about the day of the lord now in wherever we see the day of the lord in scripture and specifically here in the old testament and old testament prophets. It's directly talking about the day of god's judgment that's coming upon his people for their sin. We've seen this in different ways through different prophets With the northern kingdom of israel this is relating to the southern kingdom of judah. God warning his people that because of their sin that he will bring his judgement upon them and we see these warnings for other nations. Says what we see in whom for example talking about god's judgment on the people of niniveh and then in a broader way. Because we see this all the way through the bible all the way to the end in revelation when we see the day of the lord as a picture of his ultimate judgment in the earth that all of these displays of his judgment at different times in history will one day culminate in the ultimate day of the lord win. All of these things will happen in so now listen to these words a full and sudden end he will make of all the inhabitants of the earth. There's coming a day when god will fully and finally judge the earth in every inhabitant in it all the inhabitants of the earth and on that day silver or gold will not be able to deliver. Anyone like money can't save prosperity in this world. Can't save nothing in this world will be able to save on the day of the wrath of the lord and we know this we who are hearing this and the bible we. You know god's word we know this god has told us this is coming which is motivation then right for evangelism for proclamation of good news to people around us. Just think about people in your life and my life who we know who don't know this who don't realize that there's coming a day of judgment when they will stand before god and apart from will be cast into attornal punishment will experience them and there's so much imagery here in chapter one that describes god's wrath god's judgment we know this is coming so god help us to proclaim the gospel with urgency today. An elvis not to be silent with the gospel got help us not to be distracted by so many other things got. I confess my own life and my leadership is a pastor. I get so distracted by so many other things then people souls for all of eternity and the reality of your coming judgment and need for your mercy in the gospel and to proclaim that like loudly and clearly and compassionately on ashamed league. God help me to proclaim this. Not just i mean yes. There's a pastor. Preach forgot every day for each one of us to proclaim your mercy your grace in light of your coming judgment every single day. God may this clear in her mouth and this be clear in our interactions with people around us chris overflow into spread of your goslin places where it's never ever been heard where there's no hardly any christians thing about the sirene can arabs in libya. Almost a million and a half of them hardly any of them have knowledge of the gospel and even looking at earlier today the instability in libya god we pray for the spread of the gospel among the sirene can arabs of libya. Got him every people group in the world. They're not ready for the day when you return. Jesus they're not already not trusted. You not heard the good news of your grace in the gospel.

The Enemy Has Been Defeated (Nahum 1:15)
"Whom chapter one verse fifteen behold upon the mountains the feet of him who brings good news who publishes piece exclamation point should have read that with more zeal with more enthusiasm. Because that's really what this verse is all about so the context to your home is. Here's a prophet who is proclaiming. God's judgment god's coming wrath specifically on the people of niniveh which was the capital of syria and the assyrian said waged war and wreaked havoc on god's people specifically the northern kingdom of israel. And keep in mind. This is the same city where jonah had gone to preach about god's coming judgment and the people of none of a had repented had turned from their san. We actually prayed through john chapter three. How god relented of the disaster. He had said he would bring upon none of a because of their repentance but here and they whom the messages clear. God's judgement is coming and the people of none of a have not repented are not repenting and god is making clear that they will experience they will not escape his judgment and specifically god's judgment for the way that none of is the assyrians had ravaged his people. And so in this sense when you get to nayhum. Chapter one verse. Fifteen the prophet whom says behold upon the mountains. The feet of him who brings good news. Who publishes piece so nana's downfall god's judgment upon a syria was good news for the people whom the assyrians were talking. This was good news. For god's people now as we think about how this first leads us to pray as wanna say it one more time and now the you know the context here these words behold upon the mountains the feet of him who brings good news who publishes piece basically saying like picture somebody running over the mountains saying war against you is over. Your enemies will not be attacking you anymore. Peace will reign in the land. Like when you see somebody running and proclaiming that. That's good news. That's cause for celebration with an exclamation point at the end of it. So when we think about that picture and then just take it to a whole 'nother level i. We are engaged in spiritual battle in every single one of our lives. There's an adversary in this world. Who is warring against your soul my soul our hearts our minds today trying to pull us away from god. There's an adversary in this world. John chapter ten makes clear. His aim is to kill steal and destroy. And what is the gospel but good news. That adversary has been conquered. The jesus has come and live a life of perfect obedience to god. Never once giving into temptation from the adversary he has conquered sin then he died on a cross to pay the price for sin and when it looked like all was lost and he had been defeated three days later he rose from the grave in victory over sin and victory over satan and victory over death itself this is the gospel and behold upon the mountains the feet of him who brings good news publishes pieces says that peace with god is possible through faith in jesus and victory over san enemy has been defeated. Salvation is a reality for all who trust in the victor for all who trust in jesus. So let's celebrate this gospel with an exclamation point in our minds and hearts today and let's proclaim this gospel. Let's go to the mountains to use language from name chapter one verse fifteen. Let's go to people right around us and people around the world and let's proclaim good news. Let's publish piece.

At the very end God says, you shall bear the penalty for your central. Trie. A. You shall bear the penalty for your sinful idolatry as you hear that phrase. I just think this is a simple principle. I think about going into details a a discipline conversation that heather and I were having our children recently. And we've had this conversation up million times. It seems like with different children I when you disobey. There will be consequences like it is not good to disobey. Is Good to obey that leads to good things when you disobey that leads to bad things and that's The Clear simple principle that God is saying over and over again in the book of Ezekiel. And he says it right here you shall bear the penalty for your sinful idolatry idolatry. Is, not, good, it does not lead to good. Immorality disobedience is not good at does not lead to good. This seems so basic yet how often? Do. We need to be reminded of this. As we are tempted every day to disobey in different ways. And God says to us in his word by his spirit over and over and over again, it is good to obey it is not good to disobey. So in a fresh way today Oh God, we pray. Help us. To choose that which is good. Today. Or, if we're listen this is we're gonna bed and night stowe wake up in the morning remembering that it's good to obey listening this at the very beginning of our day or somewhere else like as always we have time left in this day God, help us to choose that which is good.

Vapotherm CEO Joe Army: Wisdom from the Northern Kingdom to the Board Room and Beyond
"Now at some point you you you found your way outside of Vermont and went to Uri. You paid your way through. Uri Newer a history. Major and I I was also a history major. Remember coming out of school wondering what I was going to do with a history degree. Talk a little bit about that. What why did you choose history? You know You ended up in kind of a science focused background but our some of those choices played into your development. I think before we get to that. We have to make it. Sound like is really nice. Well planned out. You know you and I both know. That's not true Very well I. I wasn't really a very good at school in anything that I ever did in school. I graduated pretty close to the bottom of my high school. And you know didn't really like school wasn't good at it and I ended up going back into the woods until you know it was clear to me halfway through that summer that you know if I could find a way to get into college I should do it up going with small state school in Vermont and ended up. You know be invited not to return to that school. After two years for variety of reasons and then spent the next year banging nails in Newport Rhode Island and paying off all of my student bills that point time and really beginning to think. About what kind of life do I want to have and you know working in the woods in northern Vermont is hard work but I will tell you Hump and bricks and sheet rock in Rhode Island in the wintertime? That's no box of chocolates either. So ended up really thinking it through. There was a guy. I've been very lucky in my life is. I've had a number of people show up at the exact right time to become a mentor to me and this guy showed up Dick Shoals and this other Guy Fred Dowager and they started begging me over the head about you know you could do a lot more than this. Is this really what you WanNa do with your life and Dick is the one who helped me figure out why history major and he said look you know you wanna be able to come out of college knowing how to read write and Sake so go figure out how you can do that and I was like to read and I always loved history and I understood. That would help me punch those three things so I know I wasn't worried I didn't think about a trade school like well. I'VE GOTTA go learn to be you know XYZ. I just wanted to come out of there knowing how to read. Write and thank and I've told is pretty important foundation and helped me a lot my career in from there. I went and sold stocks. Were living on Wall Street for you. Know three or four years and did okay at that and then ended up getting accepted to business school. I went to wharton. And that's when I decided to go. Specialize you get an MBA in finance marketing. That's more like trade school so there was not a linear path. You know was getting bounced out of schools. It was figuring out how to actually do well in school and education really is the key. It is the way out for people who are looking at along way up from where they sit today. Yeah no that's a so true and I couldn't agree more now coming out of Warton. Where did your career take you at that point? You know. You're not gonNA believe this but I actually worked in federal government between my first and second year at Wharton I won a fellowship and at that time in this was in the late eighties early nineties. We had another gigantic financial mess on our hands and it was the savings and loan meltdown. And I'm sitting there thinking about what I wanna do. My summer between first and second year and I'm reading in the newspaper about this and about the formation of this resolution trust corporation and so I applied for the fellowship but then you had to actually go get the job and so I called. Call that Guy Who was named in that newspaper article every day for like six weeks and finally I got him on the phone and after he was screaming at me about. I got better things to do than look at this big stack of pick messages from you They vitamin down in DC. And next thing I know I got a job offer and I was working with distressed assets and I was really intrigued by the whole thing. I worked really cool projects I made no money and I was taking the train from Philly to DC every day for you know that was like the slow bus that had like a three and a half hour commute in total and then. I ended up getting a CONDO. They gave me a Condo in in Georgetown. Meantime my wife was living in West philly which you can imagine. That was a box of chocolates. So I really fell in love with this whole notion of distressed assets and thinking about you know when you're in a distressed assets situation whoever could keep their act together and really think about what is the what is the inherent value of those assets. And how could you best deploy them pretty good chance of getting something pretty cheap and then turn it into something pretty special? So that's where I ended up. After Business School I ended up at coopers lybrand they had a big consulting business and part of it was they had a restructuring in kind of a turnaround business and after coming out of school. That's right where I went. I did that for the next six years. And you ended up obviously in running venture backed companies and companies that You know probably at a different point in their evolution then the companies that you were working more on the distress side. But what are some of the lessons that you picked up Working with those distress assets. And are there things that you learn their the end up applying or become kind of part of your thought process as you as you work with companies that are maybe on the upswing of their path absolutely jeff again? This is where I kept getting lucky in guys kept showing up in my life and giving me advice in point meet her. I direction nine. Another mentor net practice. A guy named Bob. Hope Bob was about as tough as nails and he was a really old school so I was. I had to go and kind of knock the door down a little bit to get him to teach me how to do it. He did really taught me from the get-go that I didn't care what kind of business it was. Cash was the whole thing. Like if you don't have the cash I don't care about whatever company and you better figure out how to make that business self sustaining no matter what and then the second thing he kept hammered into me was. Is there really business?

Came to pass as he went to Jerusalem. Then he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. And as he entered into a certain village there met him ten men, that were lepers which stood afar off. And of course, they would because the lepers were separate they were caused separated, but we're leprosy's a term that we we call it today. Hansen's disease gardens fatal incurable disease and transmission was a mystery. They felt it was very, very contagious at may not actually been as contagious assumed but even that's, that's the way it was regarded. And so the lepers were isolated and they stayed together, and they had to warn people to stay away, carrying a lantern or signer. Whatever stay away unclean. They would call attention to act, so they would not commingle in advertently with healthy people had to stay one hundred fifty feet away from people and down wind. If you would. So lifted up their voices and said, Jesus master have mercy on us. The word travels fast in the world of hopelessness, we can't really grasp the concept of hopelessness that came up in the last session Batori about Luke sixteen idea hopelessness is beyond our imagining. There is not a single case in the scripture where Jesus called help, and he didn't respond. So anyone saw them. He said them go show yourselves in the priests, and it came to pass as they went. They were cleansed while and there is a obligation for them to show themselves to the priest if twenty I didn't. That's why the idea being incurable is perhaps a misnomer because there were cases where people rare, but they were healed. But here Jesus healed them. And one of them would he saw that he was healed turn back and with a load voice, glorified?

Packed in. God's revelation was rather minimal. No, not at all. Well, then what are we to make the fewer references to eat and Abraham and the greater references to David. There's a sense in which has God's revelation gets closer to a specific objective. The number of references to that objective increased. What does that mean consider this though there were prophets throughout the Old Testament the number of prophets, and their prophecies appears to be concentrated in a three hundred year period in Israel's history most of the writing prophets, for example, Isaiah through Malachi prophesied between seven hundred fifty and four hundred and fifty years before the coming of the Christ. Why that three hundred year period, covered the fall of the northern kingdom of Israel to Assyria and their captivity it covered the fall of the southern kingdom of Judah to Babylon and their captivity it covered the rise. Of the Mito Persian empire. Israel's and Judas released from captive, and the return of Jewish remnant to Judah and to Jerusalem, it covered the rebuilding of the city of Jerusalem and the temple and finally that period covered the reestablishment of the mosaic system of worship because of dire spiritual conditions specifically Israel's and Judas failure to obey God's law that is to submit their will to God's well God sent prophets and God sent them continuously to admonish his people Jeremiah's sums it up this white in chapter seven verse twenty five since the day that your father's came out of the land of Egypt until this day.

The concentration of developed references increases as we move further into the Old Testament, text Abraham's, covenant, I mentioned in Genesis twelve becomes a central part of God's redemptive. Plan proof of that can be seen in the many references to Abraham's faith. God's covenant promise with Abraham and Christ role as the fulfillment of the seed promise that can be found especially in the letters of Paul to the Roman and the Galatian churches, but once David lived and died the Old Testament genealogical, messianic references have narrowed to their for this point. Genesis three fifteen first gospel. The one concerning eve seat was brought in Genesis chapter twelve and following the seed line narrowed to Abraham and then two each of his descendants, it narrowed to Isaac and then through Jacob and then through Judah. The last major character in the seed line through Judah was David though, there were other great kings in Judah after David as a Coyote and Josefa, for example. They were not the ones who I received the throne promise, it was to David that God through Nathan said when your days are fulfilled and you rest with your father's I will set up your seat after you who will come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom he shall build a house for my name, and I will astonish the throne of his kingdom forever and three versus later and your house and your kingdom shall be established forever before you your throne shall be established forever that second Samuel chapter seven versus twelve thirteen and verse six teen that prophecy, though, initially fulfilled and Solomon's reign was cited by the angel.

And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth, a son, and shall call his name Jesus, he will be great and will be called the son of the highest and the Lord God will give him the throne of his father, David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever.
