April 22
Joshua 24:1-33
Luke 21:1-28
Psalm 89:38-52
Proverbs 13:20-23

Joshua 24:19 – In the middle of the people claiming to serve the LORD once (Joshua 24:18), twice (Joshua 24:21), and three times (Joshua 24:24), Joshua tells them they cannot serve the LORD because He is holy and jealous! But why does Joshua say He cannot forgive their sins? Similar to Jesus warning of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit (Luke 12:10), these passages indicate God cannot save those who have hardened their hearts against Him, only those who have repented and called upon the LORD.

Luke 21:14 – How do we reconcile this with 1 Peter 3:15? 1 Peter 3:15 is for our dispensation (the age of Grace / church age), while here Jesus is prophesying about those in Jerusalem in AD 70, according to Jimmy DeYoung.

Is this the mountains that the Judaeans are to flee to (Luke 21:21)?

Psalm 89:47 – Remember how short my time is. That’s why we need to Redeem the Time!

Proverbs 13:20 –  Let’s go to our good friend Patch the Pirate to teach us this verse! (Think this is tied to Joshua 24:31)?
