Ask in My name. Transacting His business
1Kings 9-10 / Acts 21-23

How to get the most out of Hungry Bible


OT

9:3-9 The LORD said to him, “I have heard your prayer and your request. I have set apart this Temple you have built so that my name will be honored there forever. I will always watch over it and care for it. As for you, if you will follow me with integrity and godliness, as David your father did, always obeying my commands and keeping my laws and regulations, then I will establish the throne of your dynasty over Israel forever. For I made this promise to your father, David: ‘You will never fail to have a successor on the throne of Israel.’ But if you or your descendants abandon me and disobey my commands and laws, and if you go and worship other gods, then I will uproot the people of Israel from this land I have given them. I will reject this Temple that I have set apart to honor my name. I will make Israel an object of mockery and ridicule among the nations. And though this Temple is impressive now, it will become an appalling sight for all who pass by. They will scoff and ask, ‘Why did the LORD do such terrible things to his land and to his Temple?’ And the answer will be, ‘Because his people forgot the LORD their God, who brought their ancestors out of Egypt, and they worshiped other gods instead. That is why the LORD has brought all these disasters upon them.’ “

NT

22:30 The next day the commander freed Paul from his chains and ordered the leading priests into session with the Jewish high council.  He had Paul brought in before them to try to find out what the trouble was all about.

23:11 That night the Lord appeared to Paul and said, “Be encouraged, Paul. Just as you have told the people about me here in Jerusalem, you must preach the Good News in Rome.”

The richest kingdom of all the earth
The breathless queen

Romans protect him after arresting him

In that day – being one with Jesus means we can transact His business with the Father –
Ask in My name [Ask from inside Him]
