This is DAY ONE of the daily devotional.
I am releasing a 50 day daily devotional about the end-times as revealed in Scripture. Along with the text, I will be providing a video where I cover the text of the day, and @verbal-d will be providing an audio version of it. That way, whether you want to read, watch, or listen, you'll be able to enjoy this study as you wish.
The plan is to release this devotional over the next 50 consecutive days, but life may "get in the way." We will do our best, but please be patient with me if I fall behind.

DAY 1 : THE FOUNDATION
Continually we are exhorted and commanded in the New Testament to examine what we are told and to test what we believe by comparing it to Scripture.
“Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves.” (2 Corinthians 13:5a)
“These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” (Acts 17:11)
“Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.” (1 Thessalonians 5:21)
“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” (1 John 4:1)
Unless we are willing to put our beliefs to the test and prove their accuracy with Scripture, we may simply be deceiving ourselves. I am thankful that I have periodically heard men remind their audiences of the importance of not believing something just because they were saying it. Every believer, teacher, pastor, church, and denomination can and will periodically be wrong on an issue. This is where the importance of the Holy Bible cannot be overemphasized.
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
Personally, there seems to be too many passages which I have used to draw my conclusions for me to have misinterpreted them all, but it remains your job, as the reader, to see for yourself. Please pray that the Lord will give you eyes to see and ears to hear, and that He will protect you from anything erroneous, whether the error be within your already held belief system, or within the pages of this volume.
Point #1: We must admit that we may be wrong.
Point #2: The Bible can correct any error if we let it.
Each day I will attempt to share a small portion to begin to lay a foundation. Each day I will also emphasis points at the end of the day. Whatever else you may or may not understand, I urge you to take things slowly and see if you do not at least agree with the points that I make on a daily basis.
Also, if anyone is really interested, I did post the entire volume through an alt account over a year ago. I did so as an experiment to see how hard it would be for a new user to get noticed on steemit, so I didn't let anyone now that I was doing it. You can click here to a post that has links to the entire 50 days of this devotional if you really want to read ahead. That information has always been available there since I first posted it. It is not the purpose of this series to just copy all of my previous work, but instead to transform it into some new outlets by releasing it in an audio and video format, to broaden the reach that this work has.
Again, though I will certainly never claim to know it all, I do believe that many are being lead astray by some popular beliefs. I hope that this project will be able to help many others understand the end-times more accurately. Thanks!
Until next time…
