The Walk with the Word reading schedule for the week beginning 5/12 is Jeremiah 26-35...beginning 5/19 is Jeremiah 36-45...

This Week's Bible Study

This week's featured Bible study from the reading for Jeremiah 26-35 is Jeremiah 26 • The Contrast of God's Messengers. Jeremiah and Uriah. Both were prophets of God sent during the same time to the same people with the same message. One’s spiritual legacy endures to this day as one of the greatest prophets of all time; the other is but a supporting footnote to the other.

This Month's Commentary

I want to follow up January’s Walk with the Word commentary (see “Just Call Me Simeon”) documenting the prophetic significance of the fact that the very sacrifices which Scripture repeatedly specifies will be personally interrupted by the Antichrist (Dan. 8:1; 9:27; 11:31; 12:11) were initiated in Jerusalem this past December on the last day of Hanukkah.

Overview of Walk with the Word

Walk with the Word is based on the belief that the best way to know God personally is to experience Him through His Word. How does experiencing God personally through His Word happen? It happens when we allow Him to "speak" to us through His Word. We believe that every Christian is capable of hearing God speak through His Word if they will devote the time and effort. Too few Christians today are truly experiencing God through His Word because they have assumed that the attaining of facts and knowledge about God's Word is sufficient.

Knowledge of God's Word is important; without it we would not know about God. However, facts, information, doctrine and theology do not always put us in touch with God; they do not automatically connect us to God personally. Knowledge about God does not necessarily translate into knowledge of God experientially. Facts and information about God's Word may be one step so as to know God, but is only one step towards God.

Walk with the Word provides a systematic method for reading through the Bible every 3-1/3 years. The program is designed to be implemented by churches on a church-wide basis, as a small group ministry, or for the individual. Teaching through the Bible every 3 years is not for the mere purpose of completing a noble task, but to learn how to personally apply the whole Word of God.

Walk with the Word primarily focuses on three things:

  • (1) To receive the Word (accurately understand the Bible and be able to interact with it on a personal level, to the point that God speaks to the heart);
  • (2) To live the Word ("flesh out" God's Word to the point that the truth permeates every aspect of the believer's life, affecting decision-making, behavior and relationships); and,
  • (3) To spread the Word (share the good news found in God's Word with pre-Christians, and help them to receive the Word and begin living the Word).
