1 CHRONICLES

OBSERVATION:

THE WORD CHRONICLES MEANS “EVENTS OF THE DAYS OR YEARS”. SOME SCHOLARS REFER TO CHRONICLES AS “THINGS LEFT OUT”. JEWISH TRADITION FAVORS EZRA AS THE WRITER OF CHRONICLES: SOME SCHOLARS DISAGREE. KEY CHARACTERS ARE DAVID, SOLOMON, HEZEKIAH AND JOSIAH.

INTERPRETATION:

1 CHRONICLES 16:33 (NKJV) THEN THE TREES OF THE WOODS SHALL REJOICE BEFORE THE LORD, FOR HE IS COMING TO JUDGE THE EARTH.

POINTS TO PONDER:

ALL OF GOD’S CREATION IS AWAITING HIS RETURN. NATURE ITSELF WILL CRY ALOUD IN PRAISE. PARADISE LOST NOW BECOMES PARADISE GAINED. HIS UNFAILING MERCY WAS ISRAEL’S ASSURANCE THAT THY COULD DEPEND ON HIM “IF” THEY OBEYED HIM.

THE PHRASE “THE TREES WILL REJOICE” IS A FIGURE OF SPEECH (PERSONIFICATION) MEANING INANIMATE THINGS ARE SPOKEN AS IF THEY HAD HUMAN CHARACTERISTICS.

ISRAEL’S ASSURANCE WAS COMPLETE PROTECTION FROM ANY ENEMY “IF” THEY REMAINED IN COVENANT WITH HIM. UNFORTUNATELY, THEY DID NOT KEEP COVENANT! THEY WERE TO WORSHIP HIM ALONE AND NO OTHER GODS WHO REALLY CANT’S HEAR, SPEAK, OR DISCERN: THEY ARE LIFELESS OPPOSED TO GOD THE ONLY LIFE GIVER.

CREATION ITSELF SPEAKS TO GOD’S WISDOM, POWER AND ORDER. THEY SPEAK MORALLY AND MATERIALLY.

APPLICATION:

THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST IN REVELATION SPEAKS TO GOD’S WISDOM, POWER AND ORDER. BE PREPARED!
