Letís Look At The Scriptures - Part 1

Have you ever thought about what a great Work the Scriptures really are?  Think of all the men who wrote down what Yahweh told them to! Think of Paul's devotion to writing upbuilding and exhorting letters to various assemblies, David's personal prayers to Yahweh,  Jeremiah's proclamation of Yahweh's prophetic Words,  Matthew,  Mark,  Luke, and John's time in writing of the Life of Yahshua, Yahweh's diligence in giving His children Law and Order, etc. The Scriptures are full of rare and precious Jewels of Wisdom and Life. It is indeed inspired of Yahweh. Now, with this in mind, let's look at some beautiful verses which they contain.

The Torah:

Genesis 8:22 Yahweh's faithfulness
Exodus 20:2.  A spiritual life of liberty
Leviticus 23:27-28.  At-one-ment (at one with Yahweh)

Well, as you can see, we have only gotten a short ways, but look in the next issue of ROTP for a continuation of this. As I'm sure you are realizing, there is beauty in each individual Book within the Scriptures.  Some Books that I looked at, I thought, I can't find a verse that would be good for this in this Book.   However, I was wrong.  In every Book so far, I have found a good verse for this list of scriptures. Remember, this will be continued in the next issue. And by the way, if you have done any Scripture studies that strike you as interesting, please feel free to submit them for possible publication.
