Mon 090413 pm 2 Chr 16-20 & Phil 2

Philippians 2

2.6 & 8 The whole idea of being THE boss and a servant at the same time is one of the wonders of the Christian experience.
2.12 work out your salvation with fear and trembling Fear and trembling seems to be a little stronger than reverential awe. This is promising phrase to mull over.
2.2.17-18 Paul
2.19-24 Timothy
2.25-30 Epaphroditus
That is the list I want to be on.

2 Chronicles 16

16.1 Ramah - A city in the territory of Benjamin named between Gibeon and Beeroth --ISBE
16.9 those whose heart is blameless toward him also... One of my favorite verses.

2 Chronicles 17

17.3 The Lord was with him...
17.3-4 did not seek the Baals, but sought God... The word seek being applied to both Baals and the Lord raises interesting things to think about. What does it mean to seek in that sense.
17.7 he sent his officials... Teaching the people seems to have been important part of the righteous bent of the nation at this time.

2 Chronicles 18

18.2 I have never understood why Jehoshaphat would be so cozy with Ahab. It was probably for some political advantage.
18.13 Go Micaiah!! It would be cool the have the Word of the Lord and the courage to tell it like it is like Micaiah did. People should name their sons after him.
18.24 There has to be some kind of idiom or inside story to this verse.
18.25 The governor of Samaria in the time of Ahab. The prophet Micaiah was put in his custody (1 Kings 22:26; 2 Chr. 18:25). ---WebBible Encyclopedia
18.29 This seems just a bit suspicious. Surely Jehoshahat would have know something was odd. I wonder if this ever happened before.

2 Chronicles 19

19.8 give judgement for the Lord...
19.9 do in the fear of the Lord
in faithfulness or truth
with our whole heart Interesting since we always thing of justice being impartial and not involving the heart.
19.10 warn them that they may not incur guilt before the Lord

2 Chronicles 20

20.2 hazazon-tamar (Engedi) - a place in the wilderness of Judah (Josh. 15:62), on the western shore of the Dead Sea (Ezek. 47:10) ---WebBible Encyclopedia
20. 9 Reminds me of Solomon's prayer to dedicate the temple.
20.12 our eyes are on You. Great conclusion to a good prayer.
20.26 Valley of Beracah - It has been identified with the valley of Bereikut. (R.V., “Beracah.”) ---WebBible Encyclopedia
20.35 I still don't understand why he did that.
