|1||Whose glory is being sought?||1 Sam 4:3||Mommapbs||242866|
|Greetings Ed, it seems to me that this is not so much about the sin of the priests as it is a judgement of God on His people. Please note that this decision was not reached by the priests, but rather the elders of Israel. The man of God (2:27) announced God's judgment against the house of Eli and his descendants (v. 30) which gives us this warning as well: 'I will honor those who honor Me but those who despise Me will be disgraced.' My original question is about the elders. How did their action dishonor the LORD? My thinking here is that the elders believed that by bringing God into the situation the outcome would change. It did not. I suspect that we may be guilty of the same misunderstanding. God is about His glory first. Might we also cloak our self-centered desires in a similar manner as these elders? Of course God wants me to be rich . . . think of all I could do for Him then. Whose glory are we really seeking? Thankfully, in the end, God is glorified when we finally lay to rest the idol of self.|
|2||What went wrong?||1 Sam 4:3||Mommapbs||242861|
|The outcome of this advice was disastrous for Israel as we read in vv. 10-11 that Israel was once again defeated and the Ark of the LORD was captured. What was wrong with their thinking and what might illustrate that this misunderstanding of God still persists?|
|3||What is "that which is within"?||Luke 11:41||Mommapbs||241348|
|What is "that which is within?" Looking at the Amplified, this refers to inward righteousness. Might this reference also the motivation of the heart?|
|4||Did God give grace to Nineveh?||Jon 4:11||Mommapbs||228160|
|When the people of Nineveh repented, God spared the city. This verse says He had compassion. Where does grace fit here or does it? Did God forgive Nineveh for their wickedness?|
|5||Judas -a question or making a statement?||Matt 26:25||Mommapbs||225780|
|It is my understanding that there were no punctuation marks used in the original manuscripts. Is there some way that we know that Judas is asking a question here?|
|6||Stones of Fire?||Ezek 28:14||Mommapbs||222352|
|What are these stones of fire? This is where Lucifer walked and yet in vv. 16,17 God cast him from the midst of the stones of fire to the ground.
|7||Items of identity?||Gen 38:18||Mommapbs||220763|

|Can one come to the truth apart from wisdom?|
|9||Truth and Wisdom||Ps 51:6||Mommapbs||217517|

|10||Boasting in the Name?||Ps 20:7||Mommapbs||217516|
|Why is boasting (trusting) in the Name of the LORD significant?
Also, might this verse be referencing Israel's escape from the Egyptians (Ex 14-15)? See also Dt. 20:1 When you go out to battle against your enemies and see horses and chariots and people more numerous than you, do not be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, who brought you up from the land of Egypt, is with you.
|11||Do we understand suffering in delighting||Ps 37:4||Mommapbs||215820|
|Is the prayer of Jesus in the garden, "not My will but Yours be done" (Luke 22:42) an example of "delighting in the LORD?" Can we understand suffering in this context? I'm wondering if seeking His kingdom and His righteousness first, also goes along here? Any insight would be appreciated.|
|12||Who is the strong man?||Mark 3:27||Mommapbs||208533|
|Who is the strong man?|
|13||God working for our good||Rom 8:28||Mommapbs||198812|

|14||How does God glorify His name?||John 12:28||Mommapbs||184387|

|15||Same supper as John 12?||Luke 10:38||Mommapbs||184335|
|Greetings - I found it interesting that in one account Mary is criticized by her sister and in the other account (John 12) she is criticized by an outsider. Both attempt to "rob" Mary. Are these the same suppers?|
|16||Fullness of Christ?||John 1:16||Mommapbs||181616|

|17||Jesus' Deity?||Rom 10:9||Mommapbs||178527|
|Can one believe that Jesus was raised from the dead and yet refuse to believe in His deity?
The word for Lord here troubles me a bit - not being a greek scholar how does kurios (from kuros authority; lord, master) translate to the Godhead?
|18||Was the curse on the ground lifted?||Gen 8:21||Mommapbs||177478|
|At the Fall, The LORD cursed the ground.Gen 3:17 (This might be why Cain's offering was rejected, because it came from what the LORD had cursed.)
Generations of sin later Lamech declared,
Now he called his name Noah, saying, "This one will give us rest from our work and from the toil of our hands arising from the ground which the LORD has cursed." Gen 5:29
After the flood, the LORD responds to Noah's offering. "I will never again curse the ground on account of man, for the intent of man's heart is evil from his youth; and I will never again destroy every living thing, as I have done."
Was the curse on the ground lifted? (I'm wondering about the grain offering God commanded - how this would be acceptable if the ground was cursed?)
|19||What cherubim looked like?||Ex 25:18||Mommapbs||176077|
|How did the Israelites know what cherubim looked like? (There are Biblical references Gen 28:12; Ex 32:1 to previous angelic appearances . . . It would be interesting to know if there were any pictorial record of these beings?)It is interesting to note that there was no record of angel worship - compare that to today. Any insight here?|
|20||Significance of steps?||Ex 20:26||Mommapbs||175890|
