Bible in 90 Days Day 86

Bible in 90 Days Day 86 Using the SOAP Method


I Thessalonians 1 to Philemon 1


1 The Word of God came to us in words, in power

2 We need to seek ways to please God, not ways to please man

3 You can succeed if you stand strong in the Lord

4 Jesus has told us how we should conduct ourselves

5 Jesus will return as a surprise to us, like thief in the night

II Thessalonians

1 Those who do not obey the Lord will be punished severely with flaming fire

2 Be careful in what you follow because Satan will send things out for you to follow that are not of God

3 The Lord will strengthen you and keep you from evil

I Timothy

1 The law is not for followers of God who live under grace, but for the sinful and lawless

2 We should pray for our leaders and those in authority so that we may lead peaceful lives

3 Leaders of the church should be leading proper lives and managing their families well, because if they cannot manage their homes, they cannot manage the church

4 Every creature of God is good and can be eaten because they were created to give thanksgiving

5 A person that does not provide for his own family is worse than an infidel

6 It is free to come to Christ but it costs to stay in the faith

II Timothy

1 God has called us to work for him for a purpose

2 We should study the word of God so we know what he wants of us and should not be ashamed of our working to understand. Instructions on prayer, (I need to review more with other scriptural references, such as Proverbs 31: 10 - 31)

3 All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is good for correction, teaching and so that man may be perfect

4 The word of God should be preached while it can for in the future people will not listen to the word of God, but turn to their own ways and understanding


1 Church leaders should be godly men and not ill tempered and should follow the words of God

2 We should liver soberly and righteously looking for the hope of Christ’s return

3 We are saved by mercy and not by our own works


1 Paul is sending Timothy and asks those who receive him to treat Timothy as they would Paul



This section of scriptures reminds me again that the Bible is a huge and powerful book that must be studied in context of the rest of the book. There are many passages that seem to say one thing, but if we read the entire bible or sometimes even the rest of the chapter we see that what we thought we understood in one verse is changed or amended or more fully explained in a verse later in the very same chapter.


Heavenly Father, thank you for giving me your word! Thank you for allowing me to study so that I can understand what you want from me and how I can better live out my purpose. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
