Welcome to Daily Bible Online

Our goal is to create online tools to help others explore and study the meaning of scripture as it relates to the entire Bible, Jesus Christ our Lord and God's plan of redemption. All of our scripture studies take into context the surrounding verses, chapter and book, as well as the historical and cultural times of the writer, and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

God's Gift of Grace to Us!

Everyone of us has sinned and broken God's laws. Everyone has fallen short of God's perfect standard. All people at one point or another have done something or thought something they're not proud of, something that they would not like anyone else to know about, let alone God. Moreover, God looks not only at our deeds, but also the desires and motives behind all the things we do. The Bible says, "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." And that's what Salvation is all about. All of humanity was born with a sin-nature, and we are separated from God because of our sin. In addition, there are no works we can perform, which can earn our way into Heaven. What we consider "good deeds" are god's standard for our normal everyday behavior. If that were not hard enough, we have to remember, no good deeds, no matter how big the sacrifice, erase or remove past sin. There are no scales in Heaven, God is not going to compare our sins against our good deeds, to see which is greater.

That would be like committing a crime, then telling the judge we are not guilty because we did a good deed afterwards. We must remember all sin no matter how small in thought or deed is punishable by Hell. But the good news is God wants to have a relationship with you and me. God's desire is that all people would spend eternity with Him in Heaven. Therefore, God's salvation is a free gift given by His grace, through faith alone in Jesus alone. God gave us a way to receive forgiveness of all of our sins past, present and future! And that is His free gift of grace. We know that we are not perfect. Though try as we might, no one can achieve perfection. We cannot behave perfectly all, or even most of the time, and God knows that! And that's why He gave us the gift of salvation which is the forgiveness of sins. As the Bible says "for by grace you are saved through faith; and not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not by works, lest anyone should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Daily Bible Promises

God Promises We Will See the Face of Jesus - (Revelation 22:4)

One day, you will see My face and My name will be on your forehead.


Reading Notes

For all those who love the Lord our greatest expectation, our hope which gives us endurance is looking forward to that future moment when we see Jesus face to face. We must remember we are God's children and we are also the bride of Christ. Therefore, we belong to Jesus, and our Lord is coming again for His own. Paul called the rapture the, "Blessed Hope" of all who put their faith in Christ. This particular verse is from the last chapter of the last book of the Bible. And it speaks of our final state when we are home with the Lord, dwelling in the new Jerusalem, under the new heavens and on the new earth. In addition, this verse in particular is speaking about relationships, specifically our close relationship with God because of Christ Jesus our Lord. The phrase, "His name shall be on their foreheads" is a figure of speech which refers to ownership and a very close relationship with our Lord.

In the context of these passages it refers to our close relationship with God, we belong to Him! Our relationship is so close with God, because of what Jesus did for us, that His name will be on our foreheads. And as we think about this, the most exciting part is when we go to be home with the Lord, we will also return with Jesus to the earth as His people, chosen from before the foundations of the world were laid in place. When the end of this age comes we will return with Jesus, and we will forever be with Him. And this passage here speaks of that time after the one thousand year reign of Christ. A lot of times we speak of heaven, but dear Christian, do not forget, our eternity includes living with Jesus on the new earth with a new heaven! And until that time comes, God has called us to persevere in our faith through the power of the Holy Spirit who indwells us. And to grow in the knowledge of Jesus through the study of His word, seeking out those who are lost and telling them of the good news of salvation through faith in Christ alone.

Our Savior is God

Bible Verse Isaiah 40:28-29

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength.

Commentary:

Sometimes the trials of day to day life can get us down, causing us to forget that we have a Savior and cause us to forget who He really is. The trials of this life can cause us to forget that Jesus, our Lord, our Savior is the very Creator of the universe. He is God and His name is above all names. At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that He is Lord! He not only saved us from our sins; but He is active today, making intercession for us and through Him we have the strength to persevere. Because of our faith in Jesus, we have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit with us today, who can give us a more abundant life in Christ. Dear child of God, knowing this to be true and promised by God, how can we fear? How can we not know we are loved by God, and He alone will see us through this fallen world which is at enmity with Him.

Moreover, the Lord can do all of this and more, when we follow His guidance, seeking after Him and not seeking after the things of this world. How often do we put our trust in man or the things of men and seek after what the world tells us we need, when in reality we have Jesus right here beside us? How often do we forget that our Lord never gets weary, never faints, knows the beginning and end of everything, and nothing is impossible for Him? We can get so caught up in following the world we can forget that no one can compare to our God! No one can out think, out act, over power and especially out love our Lord and Savior! Who can give advice to God, who is the Creator of everything! He is there to guide and strengthen us, He will never forsake us and He loves us dearly. All we need to do is remember to talk to Him and follow His guidance through the Holy Spirit. We need to remember before all else fails to seek out Christ Jesus our Lord, before we ever turn to the wisdom of men for answers. Lastly, our greatest goal and the sum of God's calling on anyone's life, is to glorify God and tell others of the salvation found in Christ alone through faith alone.

Seek Faith and Humility

Romans 12:3

For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.

Love Without Hypocrisy

Romans 12:9-12

Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer.

Overcome Evil With Good

Romans 12:20-21

Therefore If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Be Ready Our Salvation is Near

Romans 13:11-2

And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.

Our Glory is in Christ

Romans 8:18

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Our Flesh Constantly Lust

Proverbs 27:19-20

As in water face reflects face, So a man's heart reveals the man. Hell and Destruction are never full; So the eyes of man are never satisfied.

God Has Put Eternity in Our Hearts

Ecclesiastes 3:10-13

I have seen the God-given task with which the sons of men are to be occupied. He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end. I know that nothing is better for them than to rejoice, and to do good in their lives, and also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor-it is the gift of God.

Live Boldly in Christ

Philippians 1:20-21

According to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

Be Diligent in the Gospel

2nd Timothy 2:15

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

We Are Meant to Share God's Blessings with Others

Luke 6:38

Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.

Persecuted for Christ's Sake

Matthew 5:11-12

Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

The Wickedness of Man Summarized - (Proverbs 6:16-19)

These six things the Lord hates, yes, seven are an abomination to Him: a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren.


Reading Notes

When we see the word "abomination" in the Bible, we have to understand this is the strongest word possible for God's anger and wrath toward something. This passage summarizes the wickedness of man and highlights that evil begins in the heart of a person before it is ever reflected in their actions. In addition, this list can also reflect the fruits of an unsaved soul that does not know Jesus. These things listed here represent the attitude and heart of those who do not belong to Christ. In addition, these passages help to show us God doesn't just look at our actions, He looks are our hearts. God is interested in the motives and desires behind our actions more so than the action itself.

In addition, this also reflects the state of a man just prior to receiving God's just punish and wrath for sins. In other words, these are the characteristics of a heart not cleansed by the blood of Christ. Dear believer review this list well, if any of these can be found in us, we desperately need to repent and turn once again to Jesus. We need to daily set our sights on Him and not on the things of this world, which we know will be burned away. And once we have done so, we strive to store up treasures in heaven which are not consumed by fire. And we do that, by submitting to the guidance of the Holy Spirit on a day to day basis, carrying out the actions which result from the love in our heart for Jesus and those who are lost. Moreover, we better equip ourselves for God's service, by remaining strong in His word, steadfast in our faith and trust of the Lord, and bold in the sharing of the gospel.

Year of Psalms
for Wednesday, February 22, 2017

The Heart of the Wicked Bring About Their Own Destruction - (Psalm 109:17-20)

As he loved cursing, so let it come to him; As he did not delight in blessing, so let it be far from him. As he clothed himself with cursing as with his garment, So let it enter his body like water, And like oil into his bones. Let it be to him like the garment which covers him, And for a belt with which he girds himself continually. Let this be the Lord's reward to my accusers, And to those who speak evil against my person.


Reading Notes

In these passages David continues to call on the Lord for judgment against the wicked and with David's description of their behavior we get a glimpse into the heart of the wicked. A look into the heart of those who hate God, hate the people of God and fight against what is right and good. The wicked clothed themselves in cursing, this terminology is meant to convey the image that they regard cursing as part of their everyday attire and part of the day to day activities of their life. Cursing as referenced here is not just referring to bad language, but also to mocking God, bring false accusations against God and the people of God. It also refers to mocking the the Bible as well as what is right and good.

David is asking God to let the wicked's desire for cursing be part of their punishment and a mechanism for their own destruction. For us as followers of Christ it's important we guard what we say and how we say it because cursing can be very insidious in our world today. We tend to think of it only as bad language and that would only be partially true. Cursing includes bad language, but it also includes ridiculing or attacking fellow believers in their efforts to serve the Lord, mocking the things of God, denying the Bible. And the most common form which is gossip. Using gossip as a means to attack and impugn the reputation of others in an effort to thwart their work and hinder their service to the Lord.

Bible Principle for Today
for Wednesday, February 22, 2017

God knows His purpose for our lives and God knows the beginning from the end, so trusting in God means looking past ourselves and seeing what God can see.
