Today’s passage of Scripture is Psalm 46:1-2 which reads: “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea.”

Today’s words from a theologian are from Charles C. Ryrie. He said: “The Bible is the greatest of all books; to study it is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.”

Our first topic for today is titled “What Does It Mean That God Is a Trinity? (Part 2)” from the book, “Understanding Theology in 15 Minutes a Day” by Dr. Daryl Aaron.

— Scripture Teaches the Trinity

Both Testaments are clear: There is one true God. Judaism is renowned for being strictly monotheistic; Deuteronomy 6:4 states, “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one”. The New Testament does not deviate. For example, “There is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus”.

Our second topic for today is titled “Theology of the Prophetic Era (Part 5)” from “The Moody Handbook of Theology” by Dr. Paul Enns.


Daniel provides considerable detail in describing the destruction of the false kingdoms and the establishment of Messiah’s kingdom.

God enabled Daniel to interpret dreams and visions that foretold God’s consummation of the age. Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, had a dream that Daniel interpreted as spanning the course of Gentile domination over Israel. Daniel interpreted the four kingdoms to Nebuchadnezzar as being Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome. Following the demise of the four kingdoms Daniel saw another kingdom that would never be destroyed: “It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, but it will itself endure forever”. This was the fifth kingdom; it is Messiah’s kingdom. This fifth kingdom crushed the four preceding kingdoms with a stone cut “without hands,” suggesting Messiah’s kingdom has no human origin.
