Today marks the day that I finished reading the entire Bible. From Genesis to Revelation, I read it all.
I’m being very serious when I tell you that it has been a life changing experience. There is so much more to the Bible than I ever knew! And I’m a Christian woman!
I’ve learned so much history, and it has helped me to understand the why and how of a lot that is written in the New Testament.
I once took a class that taught that in order to fully understand the New Testament, you have to first understand the Old Testament. Now that I have completely read through both, I get that. It’s like a light bulb came on in my Biblical brain.
I’ve also realized that there is far more prophecy than I ever thought. Sure, we all know about the Book of Revelation, but the Bible is loaded with even more prophecy from start to finish. I’m fascinated with it all.
And I’ve realized that even within the Old Testament genealogies, God has place morsels of goodness for our souls.
In completing this goal of mine, I feel closer to the Lord than I ever have. I think I needed this year to really seek Him and grow. Somehow, I get this sense within me that there is something new on the horizon and that the Lord is preparing me. Reading His entire Word was just the beginning.
