Welcome to Daily Bible Online

Daily Bible Online is a non-denominational Christian website devoted to spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ and helping believers grow in their Christian faith. Our website offers Bible Search and Study Tools designed to help Christians grow in their understanding and knowledge of the Bible. 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 He Will Heal His Children - (Exodus 15:26)

I am the Lord your God who heals all of your diseases.


Reading Notes

"Jehovah-Rapha," is one of the names of our God. This Hebrew word means the "God who heals" and this is still true today. All healing comes from the Lord and this speaks to the mercy and power of God. This passage in particular was God's promise specific to the children of Israel during the time of the Exodus. God had promised not to bring any of the plagues or diseases He had brought upon the Egyptians in judgment. These passages are part of God's promise to His people as He established His covenant relationship with the Jewish people. God did this because Israel was His allotted inheritance among the nations, and He had called Israel to a special destiny on the earth. A destiny which led to the coming of the Messiah who is Christ Jesus our Lord. And because of that destiny, which was fulfilled in Christ, we too, through our faith in Jesus, have a covenant relationship with God. Through our faith in Jesus, we not only receive the forgiveness of sins, but we also receive adoption into the family of God, as children of God and joint-heirs with Christ in the kingdom of God. God promised if His people Israel would follow Him and keep His commandments, He would bless them and make them into a great nation.

Likewise, if we place our faith in Christ, and we wholly walk with Him through faith alone, we too will receive the blessings of God's grace, which include inheritance in the kingdom of Heaven as well as adoption as children into the family of God. Moreover, we receive the indwelling of the Holy Spirit who brings the power of God into our lives through His process of sanctification. Sanctification is God's process of spiritual growth carried out in the lives of all Christians because of our faith in Jesus. The process of sanctification can be accelerated or hindered by our love and loyalty to God and His word. When we fail to submit to the Holy Spirit's guidance and fail to remain in regular study of God's word and in fellowship with other Christians, we can hinder the work of the Holy Spirit in our hearts and minds. In addition, though this promise was specific to Israel, the general Biblical principle still applies to us today because of our adoption into the family of God. God can and does heal His children and God is our strength through difficult periods of illness and disease. And if we trust and follow Him, He will bring blessings into our lives, regardless of illness and the trials we face. And if we ultimately lose our lives, we still gain eternity in the presence of Christ Jesus our Lord.

Stay Strong in Christ, Do Not Reject the Gospel

Hosea 4:6-7

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. The more they increased, The more they sinned against Me; I will change their glory into shame.

We Too Should Count the Cost

Luke 14:28

But don't begin until you count the cost. For who would begin construction of a building without first calculating the cost to see if there is enough money to finish it?

We are the Light, Shinning the Gospel to Others

Matthew 5:14-15

You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.

The Lord is Mercy and Truth

Psalm 25:9-11

Good and upright is the Lord; Therefore He teaches sinners in the way. The humble He guides in justice, And the humble He teaches His way. All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth, To such as keep His covenant and His testimonies. For Your name's sake, O Lord, Pardon my iniquity, for it is great.

We Are All Precious to the Lord

Psalm 36:7

How precious is your unfailing love, O God! All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings.

The Lord is Merciful and Faithful

Psalm 36:5-9

Your mercy, O Lord, is in the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds. Your righteousness is like the great mountains; Your judgments are a great deep; O Lord, You preserve man and beast. How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Your wings. They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of Your house, And You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures. For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light.

Fear of the Lord and Humility Brings Wisdom

Proverbs 3:7, 1:7, 10:27

Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction. The fear of the Lord prolongs days, But the years of the wicked will be shortened.

As We Grow in Christ, Trials Will Come Our Way

1st Peter 4:12-14

Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy. If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified.

Our Lord Weighs the Heart

Proverbs 21:2-3

Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, But the Lord weighs the hearts. To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice [or good works].

The Lord is Good, His Mercy Endures Forever

Psalm 118:1, 4-8

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good For His mercy endures forever. Let those who fear the Lord now say, "His mercy endures forever." I called on the Lord in distress; The Lord answered me and set me in a broad place. The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? The Lord is for me among those who help me... It is better to trust in the Lord Than to put confidence in man.

We Can Glorify God by How We Handle Hardships

James 5:11

We give great honor to those who endure under suffering. For instance, you know about Job, a man of great endurance. You can see how the Lord was kind to him at the end, for the Lord is full of tenderness and mercy.

God Considers Wisely the Rebellion of the Wicked - (Proverbs 21:12)

The righteous God wisely considers the house of the wicked, overthrowing the wicked for their wickedness.


Reading Notes

Nothing we do and no actions we take, or fail to take for that matter, go unnoticed by the Lord. God is sovereign and He is the Lord over all creation. Moreover, He alone reserves the right to judge all mankind for their wickedness whether great or small. In addition, the Bible also tells us in the Gospel of John chapter one, that Jesus is the creator of all things and that through Him everything was made. And not only is Jesus the author of all creation, but through Him all things are held together. Therefore, He has not only the right to judge all who have sinned, but He alone, because of the incarnation is the only one who can be our perfect substitute. Jesus alone is the only person who has the ability to pay once and for all times, the redemption price for our us and make us holy before the eyes of a Holy God! Dear child of God, there are two types of sins, which all people commit daily in their lives. There are the sins of "commission," which are the bad things we do. Then there are the sins of "omission," which are the things that are in our power and ability to do, but we just don't think of doing them.

For example, giving our extra money to the poor, feeding the hungry, or offering the homeless to stay with us. Moreover, God will judge us not just on these two types of sins, but also on the thoughts, intents and desires of our heart. This means even if we did a good deed, but we did it out of a desire to look good, or appear religious, that is still sin in God's eyes, why? Because we did it for reasons of pride, self-recognition, obligation or gain. We have to remember, good deeds are those things we do out of our love for God and for others, for which we never expect anything in return. More importantly, good deeds do not erase the guilt of past sin, why? Because what we consider good deeds, are God's standard operating procedure for our day to day lives, they do not count as extra credit toward going to Heaven. And because of this and because of the sovereignty of Christ, every knee shall bow and every tongue confess Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father! Some will do so and be glorified as children of God, while many will face eternal destruction for their wickedness, rebellion and rejection of the grace of God through Christ Jesus our Lord.

Year of Psalms

Jesus Preserves us From Fear of the Enemy - (Psalm 64:1-2)

Hear my voice, O God, in my meditation; preserve my life from fear of the enemy. Hide me from the secret plots of the wicked, from the rebellion of the workers of iniquity.


Reading Notes

This psalm gives us a vivid portrait of the actions of the wicked and their evil behavior. The word used here for fear means "dread" and it's not the normal word used for fear. The psalmist here realizes that the fear of the enemy can be as destructive as their actual attack and how giving in to fear can happen if we take our eyes off of the Lord. However, we are not to live in fear or dread because we belong to the Lord. He is sovereign and sufficient to keep us from destruction for His good purposes. We can do this because we serve our King and Savior Christ Jesus the Lord, He has promised that no evil can operate outside His sovereign will. And though it may take our lives, it cannot snatch us from the hands of Christ because God the Father has given us to Him. This psalm was written by David as a personal lament, because of the schemes of the wicked who were plotting against Him. We have to remember the wicked mentioned here were real people, they were the enemies of David, however, in a broader sense this refers to those who are at enmity with God. Those who have no relationship with the Lord, and in our day this would also include those who reject the person and deity of Christ Jesus our Lord. We have to understand the wicked are at enmity with God.

They hate God and because we are the children of God, they hate us as well. However, because they have no power against God, they come after the people and the things of God. Moreover, they are energized not only by Satan and his demons, but also by a fallen world which itself is at enmity with God. A world greatly influenced by the one the Apostle Paul called the, "prince of the power of the air" who is Satan. David through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit wrote this psalm as a personal lament, a plea for God's assistance during a time of trouble. And in these passages and those that follow the Holy Spirit will reveal to us the heart of the wicked. This psalm will show us how the wicked scheme and plan the destruction of the people and things of God. The wicked falsely believe that somehow they can remove God from this world and somehow battle against God. However, like David we are confident in the Lord, why? Because we understand the battle has already been fought. The moment Jesus died on the Cross of Calvary, paying the price for our sins past, present and future, God won! Therefore, we must never forget, the battle is won, Satan knows he has lost and his only goal now is to take as many people with him to Hell as he can. And to do as much damage as he possibly can to the people and the things of God in this world.
