Zephaniah 1-3

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Zephaniah: the Day of the LORD

The little book of Zephaniah has a number of repeated phrases and themes. The Day of the LORD is a phrase used some 19 times in 3 chapters. God clearly states what He will do dozens of times and very clearly God will deal with sin. But there is a lot of hope and future blessing…

Habakkuk 1-3

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Habakkuk: What is Fair?

Habakkuk was truly grieved as he looked at his culture; which much like ours was rapidly changing around him. He was so overwhelmed that he cried out to God for Him to act and make everything right. God once again reminded us that He operates in ways we don’t always understand. He promised things were going to be made right but not in the expected way…

Nahum 1-3

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Nahum: God’s Judgment Against Nineveh

Nahum is the bookend to the book of Jonah, in fact Nahum is the book that Jonah probably would have liked to write. It is a book prophetically detailing the collapse and ruin of Nineveh. God was patient, over 100 years patient with Nineveh, but its wickedness had reached the end of God’s patience. He used it as well as an object lesson to Israel—fix yourself before you too are wrecked.

Micah 1-3

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Micah: What God Requires of Man

Micah is a book written to a proud people heading down a destructive path. They were content in their own ability to get themselves out of trouble, religious enough to satisfy their “god” need, and wealthy enough to meet their physical needs. YHVH was not part of that equation though, He had been pushed to the corner and become old fashioned and quaint. God once again patiently warns them…

Jonah 1-4

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Jonah: The Compassion & Sovereignty of God

One of the most well-known stories as well as one of the most disputed is the story of Jonah. What kind of animal swallowed him, can you live undersea in an animal that long, did Nineveh really repent…? Are some of the many questions asked of this small book. Many find it so implausible that they reject all of scripture because of it. Can we trust the Bible if it’s unreliable? Is it not trustworthy? What is mean for us to understand?

Obadiah 1

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Obadiah: God’s Justice

Obadiah is the shortest book in the Old Testament. It is not directed at Israel, but at one of her nemesis’ Edom. It is a microcosm of all the writing prophets where Israel’s enemies are warned and God’s blessing to Israel are reaffirmed. We all long for justice, and this book reminds us that God is interested in it as well…

Amos 1-9

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Amos: The Shepherd Prophet

Amos was an average every day guy who was asked by God to deliver a sharp and painful message. He was not a professional religious type, but a farmer and businessman. He lived during days that are almost exactly like the days we live in; prosperity and invincibility. God was about to send them into captivity for their sins, what will He do with us?

Joel 1-3

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Joel: The Day of the LORD

Joel is a book that has been under much discussion lately for a reference to the moon and the sun and the coming of the LORD. Too often well intended preachers take a thought and run with it and in the process miss vital context clues to the meaning. Joel’s writes about an event almost 2700 years ago that was a shadow of a yet future event described as the Day of the LORD.

Hosea 1-14

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Sin, Judgment, and Salvation

Hosea is the first of a group called the Minor Prophets, but there is nothing minor about them. They are filled with God’s judgment but also of hope and love.  Hosea is one the most familiar of this group of 12.  Hosea leads a difficult life and God uses his personal tragedies as object lessons to draw Israel back into a right relationship with Him.  They rebuff God’s advances but He promises that one day they will return and love Him…

Daniel 8-12

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Daniel, God’s plan for Israel

As we finish up Daniel, God has a specific message for Israel. Daniel’s book is attacked as inauthentic primarily because of these last 5 chapters; as though God would not reveal such specific details (or maybe could not). We know that God knows all things, past, present and future. If He knows our beginning from our end; knowing the same for nations is nothing to Him. He reveals these things as a warning to turn back to Him…

Daniel 2-7

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Daniel, God’s plan for the nations

The book of Daniel includes a number of visions and their interpretations. The first of them include details about empires that to Daniel were futuristic, but for us we look back and see the incredible and precise detail. God is fully in control of history, we can be sure of that! His plan is unfolding right before our eyes and He has informed us so that we can trust our future to Him as surely as we can our past.

Daniel 1-6

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Daniel, God’s Man of Integrity

Daniel’s story is one of intrigue, harrowing escapes, prophetic visions and tremendous political upheaval.  Daniel himself plays a pivotal role in the history of Israel and is foundational for our understanding of yet future events.  Daniel is not simply a prophetic book, but also an incredible story of what being a man (or woman) of God should look like…

Ezekiel 33-48

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Ezekiel Future Hope

Ezekiel’s ending is all about yet future things to even us. It is filled with hope for a bright future after much adversity and struggle. While the emphasis on this section is Israel, there is much for us to learn from and hope in. When it seems like the world is out of control, it is comforting to know God is still in control!

Phil Perry

Ezekiel 1-28

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Ezekiel before the Exile

One of the most difficult books of the Bible is Ezekiel. It is filled with almost every type of Hebrew writing and illustrations that are difficult to understand. There is great warning of coming judgment but also hope for restoration in this book…
