A Note of Welcome I’m dating myself when I tell you that when my dad bought my first computer (which took up the entire desk of my dorm room), I purchased a 5¼” floppy disk from a kiosk at the local mall that held the King James Version of the Bible—Old and New Testaments. I was thrilled with it. It wasn’t searchable; there weren’t any reference books attached to it. But it was there. The whole Bible, on my very own computer. How times have changed. The Bible Reference Collection from WORDsearch that carries my name features 75 interconnected and fully searchable books—multiple Bible translations in parallel on one screen, side-by-side with maps, Greek and Hebrew word studies (it even pronounces the foreign words aloud), commentaries, dictionaries, devotionals, study outlines, Bible study guides and questions, and more … including nine books I wrote and updated for this project. It contains a word processor, a filing and bookmarking system for favorite passages and articles, even a place to store study plans or sermon outlines. All these tools call us to a worthy goal—dig deeper and meditate longer on God’s Holy Word. I can’t remember ever being satisfied with a cursory reading, a quick once-over that would leave me saying, “I did my time for the day, God. A few moments. A few phrases. That should hold me until tomorrow.” Because it’s not only the beauty of the words found in the Word that draws me in to these fascinating pages—but it’s the Who. The earth-shaking truth in it leads me to deeper knowledge of its Author—the same Author and Finisher of my faith spoken of in Hebrews 12:2—my Master, Savior, Lord, and Friend. I pray that kind of relationship with Him is your passion, as well. This booklet is a consolidation of what I’ve learned through years of digging into God’s Word and using this powerful reference soft3


Consume the Living Word ware library to inform and guide me to its waiting-to-be-uncovered wealth. It’s all about putting the shovel in your hand and encouraging you to dig in toward a closer, more intimate knowledge of Him. You may have followed Christ for decades or you may be moments into your relationship with Him. Either way, there is something for you here—in this suggested study path, and in this jampacked Bible library. Whenever I’ve demonstrated this product one-on-one or before a room of seminar attendees, folks have been fascinated, amazed, and overwhelmed. That’s where this booklet comes in. I’ve labeled each section with a “con” verb that contains actions to show you how to use the books in the library to guide your study. Together we’ll dig into a passage that demonstrates the power of God’s Word—2 Chronicles 34-35, where the good king Josiah seeks the Lord, hears the reading of the Word, and acts righteously in response to it. Let’s learn alongside the king and come to a greater appreciation of the privilege of personal relationship with the God of the Bible.

Blessings to you,

Julie-Allyson Ieron Hebrews 12:1-2

Hint: before you continue with the “con” texts, spend some time studying the sample WORDsearch screen and tips on how to use the software that appear on the next few pages.

WORDsearch Basics

Your LIBRARY is at your far left. You’ll notice the thumbtack symbol above the Filter box in the library window. That keeps your library visible as you’re searching. If your library isn’t visible, you’ll see “RESOURCES” spelled out in a vertical column down the far left of your screen. Fly your cursor over that column; the library will appear. Smoothly move your cursor to the thumbtack and click once. That locks your library in place. You’ll open Bibles and other books by locating them in the Library and clicking once on their titles. I’ve set up the screen here to show a sample search in progress. I like to open the Bibles first, so they appear in the top left book box. You’ll see all the Bible translations I’ve opened are grouped together in one box. The program groups these for you because they’re the same category of book. Move between them by clicking 5


Consume the Living Word on their tabs. Similarly, Dictionaries and Commentaries are grouped in their respective categories as you open them. One special option with Bibles is that you can use the PARALLEL icon (mid-screen, top icon bar) to open several Bible translations side-by-side. As you’re reading difficult passages, you’ll want KJV open, because you can use it to access the Strong’s Greek and Hebrew definitions (double-click on a word, and a Strong’s window will open to that definition; it’ll even pronounce the word aloud for you). You’ll want the ESV because it’s a modern translation that’s as close as our language allows to the original languages. YLT is awkward to read, but it’s a word-for-word translation from Greek and Hebrew. BBE is simple reading English, not a direct translation, but easy to understand. If you fly your cursor past a blue underlined Scripture reference from anywhere in WORDsearch, that Scripture will open in a temporary preview window. If you enabled ZipScript when you installed the software, it works similarly when you fly across Bible references in other programs (like your word processor). When you use the SEARCH button (magnifying glass at the top left, in the icon bar) to scan your Library for a word or phrase, you’ll get a box like the one in the middle right of the sample screen that reads: “Search Results.” Scroll through these and click on those that interest you. This opens them in a preview screen. You can then read, copy, or open another window with that resource by clicking on the blue text that accompanies each entry. I’ve opened another window with the New Topical Textbook that you see in the lower right corner. To help keep track of the items relevant to my study that I found in the NTT, I’ve used the yellow pencil tool in that window’s icon bar to highlight text. This works like a textbook highlighter—it remains with the book, so the next time you open to that section or passage, the highlight will be there. Okay, that should be enough to get us started with our study. 6

Step 1. Consecrate The first step in our Bible journey is to pray, much like Josiah did early in his reign, when he searched for the God of his ancestor and kingly predecessor, David. We read this story in 2 Chronicles 34-35. We’ll focus our study on how this young king handled and responded to the Word of God. But, to do that, we’ll need to know more about his story. That’s where the WORDsearch software can come alongside and support us in our search. Since the Bible isn’t just any book, but the very Word of God, before we approach it in serious study, we need to set aside the time and make the commitment to listen to what the Author has to say to us through it. Megachurch pastor Bill Hybels recommends approaching Bible reading by “saying to God, ‘If you have anything to tell me, I am very eager to hear it.’”1 One resource in your reference library that can help you learn to do this is my book, Praying Like Jesus: Discovering the Pattern of Godly Prayer. It should appear in a window of its own automatically when you open the program for the first time. Later, after you close that window, you can find it any time under: LITERATURE: PRAYER in your library list. This powerful book on prayer has lots to say as you’re seeking to apply Jesus’ secrets to having a meaningful, twoway conversation with the God of the Universe. Read it as you have time. (Even study it by using the Companion Study Guide you’ll find in the LESSONS section of your library.) For the purposes of our Consecrate step, though, perform a magnifying glass SEARCH for the word listen. (Choose to search only this book by selecting “clear” and then checking the box beside the book’s title in the SEARCH window’s library list.) You’ll find listen used often in chapter 25 of this book. The section that’s relevant to our praying for God’s direction as we read His Word appears mid7


Consume the Living Word way through the chapter. After reading the chapter (and looking up the Scriptures referenced in it by flying your cursor over them), pray something similar to Pastor Hybels’ request. Spend time on your prayer. Don’t rush. Pray from your heart and be still before the Lord. Only then will you be ready for what follows.

Hybels, The Power of a Whisper. Zondervan, 2010, Grand Rapids, MI; epub edition.

For in the eighth year of his reign, while he was yet a boy, [Josiah] began to seek the God of David his father (2 Chronicles 34:3a).

Step 2. Consume The second step in our process is to read through the passage in its entirety. Read it in multiple translations, using your PARALLEL window (we talked about this in the program overview). In the case of our study here, you’ll want to Consume two chapters: 2 Chronicles 34-35. Access Strong’s Greek and Hebrew from your KJV Bible (it will take you automatically to Greek for New Testament; Hebrew for Old Testament) to define and understand alternate translations of key words in the passage. Key words for this reading might include: “Book of the Law” (that’s the phrase I searched for, in quotes, on the sample screen); others may include written, read, covenant, statutes, Passover, and more. Strong’s definitions will help you understand language-specific nuances of these words. Read for example, in 34:29, doesn’t mean silently perusing a document. Rather it means: call out, proclaim, preach, cry; it even carries the idea of accosting someone with a message. So, this was a reading with authority—it demanded a hearing. This is significant to our understanding of the message and responses that follow. Another resource group in your library that can help you here is the collection of Bible dictionaries. Easton’s and Smith’s dictionaries, for example, both give background on the Law of Moses and its significance to the people of God. Where they reference Bible verses, take the time to fly your mouse over the references and read the verses. You’ll also want to locate the parallel passage in 2 Kings. I’m not going to tell you where that is. Instead, here’s one way you can find it. In the Bible window, select the opening verse of the passage (2 9


Consume the Living Word Chronicles 34:1). Then click CROSS-REFS in your main icon bar at the top of your screen. The computer will do an extensive search of your library for all references to this verse. In the CROSS-REFERENCE EXPLORER window that will open after the search, locate Nave’s Topics. Once you open that outline tree (click on the + beside its name), one entry you’ll see is J-JOSIAH. Click once on that text, and you’ll find the 2 Kings references. (Keep that search minimized on your WORDsearch desktop; it’ll be useful later.)

“I have found the Book of the Law in the house of the LORD.” … Then Shaphan the secretary told the king, “Hilkiah the priest has given me a book.” And Shaphan read from it before the king (2 Chronicles 34:15, 18).

Step 3. Connect Where does the passage fit into the Bible book and the whole of the Word of God? That’s the question of the Connect step—a step that will take a considerable amount of time to cover in each study. Another word we could use for this step is contextualize—but that sounds too hoity-toity. It’s less complex than that would make it seem. It’s all about recognizing and thinking through the connections between this passage and the rest of God’s self-revelation to us in the Bible. My pastor, Colin Smith opened his sermon series on Deuteronomy by saying: “Thirty-three years ago, I read this book at one sitting in the library of the London School of Theology where I was studying. Our professor said, ‘If you want to feel the weight of [Deuteronomy] you need to read it right through at one time. You’ll never get the impact of the book if you break it up.’ … I came out of the library that night with one overwhelming impression: I never realized that there is so much of the love of God in the Old Testament.” Colin’s comment is especially relevant, because the Book of the Law found and read to Josiah would have contained the book of Deuteronomy. It may have been the very copy referenced in Deuteronomy 31:26 (which I highlighted from the New Topical Textbook in the screen capture on page 5). Look up that passage in Deuteronomy. If you can, take up Pastor Colin’s challenge to read that book in one sitting. It will illuminate Josiah’s story. Similarly, as you’re getting context, see where the passage fits with other portions of Scripture. One way to do this is to open Scofield’s Study Notes (from LIBRARY: STUDY NOTES) In the book’s window icon bar, click on the third icon—it looks like a sheet of pa11


Consume the Living Word per with a green arrow pointing to it. This opens the book’s table of contents. Select 2 CHRONICLES, then INTRODUCTION. There you’ll find cross references to Isaiah 1 and 5. Follow those. Also, you may recall that Jesus summarized the commandments from the law of God, the underlying principles read before Josiah that day, in His two greatest commandments. Use WORDsearch to locate both the Matthew passage where Jesus makes this summary, and the places in Deuteronomy and Leviticus He draws from in His statement. Now open Complete Works of Flavius Josephus (an early church historian) from LIBRARY: HISTORY AND CULTURE. Do a magnifying glass SEARCH of that book using the phrase Passover AND Josiah to find background that will help you put into context the fact that one of Josiah’s key responses to the reading was to hold a massive public Passover celebration. Also, return to your CROSS-REFERENCE EXPLORER window from your Consume study, under Naves Topics, J-JOSIAH, to find key points from the whole of Scripture that relate to this time and Josiah’s reign over God’s people. Now you’re getting a more complete picture.

“Go, inquire of the LORD for me and for those who are left in Israel and in Judah, concerning the words of the book that has been found” (2 Chronicles 34:21a).

Step 4. Consider At this point it’s time to Consider, to think carefully about what we’ve been reading. What is the Holy Spirit showing you through the passage? This is where the listening we began earlier (in Step 1: Consecrate) kicks into high gear. Remember, God’s Word is living and active. In fact, why not search for the passage that makes that statement? You know how to do a search. Try it for yourself. (Hint: you’ll find the reference in Hebrews.) You can see from the context of what you’ve consumed so far in our main passage (2 Chronicles 34-35) the power of God’s living Word. So, let’s Consider the way it demanded a response from King Josiah and the people of God. They didn’t just sit still when they heard the Word proclaimed with power and authority. The king tore his robes in grief and humility (34:19), inquired of the Lord (34:21ff), stood before the people making a solemn promise to the Lord (34:31), and acted to tear out of public and private life all sinful practices that ran counter to the Word he heard. The people (34:32) promised and did likewise. In essence, what the king and the people did was to act in repentance. So, that’s another key theme from this passage—one we might Consider worth prayerfully examining in our lives today. Repentance, contrary to popular opinion, isn’t just about getting nonbelievers saved and into God’s kingdom; it’s also what allows us to continue living like Christ in an adversarial world where we face temptations to stray every moment. To come to a better understanding of this concept, try another kind of search. This time, click the TOPICS icon (third from left) from the main icon bar. In the “Search for:” box, type repentance. After a few moments, your search content will appear. Look under Repen13


Consume the Living Word tance: Easton’s Illustrated Dictionary for an insightful description of what repentance means and how it applies to our lives. Then examine other hits in that search, as well. Do this same kind of search for any topic the Holy Spirit illuminates in your heart from the passages you’ve read. Then Consider the response He would have you take to what He shows you.

Because your heart was tender and you humbled yourself before God when you heard his words against this place and its inhabitants, and you have humbled yourself before me and have torn your clothes and wept before me, I also have heard you, declares the LORD (2 Chronicles 34:27).

Step 5. Consult Until now, we’ve not been looking to human experts, scholars or authors, to give comment on the Scriptures. Yes, we’ve used dictionaries to clarify concepts and explain language differences; and we’ve used topical reference lists to locate passages we’ve wanted to study. But intentionally we’ve been seeking first the Holy Spirit’s comments to us from His Word. You’ll notice, though, that your collection also contains many helpful, Bible-based resources written by learned Christian authors that can help us see more clearly what’s there before us in God’s Word. So, this is the time when we’ll add commentaries, Christian living books, and Bible study lessons to our search of the Word. These, of course, don’t carry the weight of Scripture. But they can be helpful to us, nonetheless. We can locate these in a couple of ways. First, if you have a Bible window open and then open a Commentary category book from your library, it will automatically track along with your Bible reading. As you scroll up or down, it scrolls with you. Two of the commentaries that come with your package are Matthew Henry Concise and Jamieson-Fausset-Brown. These cover the whole of Scripture (rather than NT, OT, or individual Bible books). Another way to locate a greater breadth of comments on the passage is to do a search using the IVS ICON (it looks like an orange lightning bolt). For this search, you’ll not only find commentaries that relate directly to your study passage, but also cross-reference notes on the passage, when it’s mentioned in relation to other Scripture verses. For this kind of search, you’ll need to open either your word processor, or the one that comes with WORDsearch (find it in the main icon bar). Once the search is complete, you’ll paste it 15


Consume the Living Word into your open document and follow the links to read the reference material. This works best if you use WORDsearch’s WORD PROC ICON to open a new document. If this is a search you’d like to save for future reference, simply name the document. It will appear in a DOCUMENTS list in the same column as your Library box. Similarly, you’ll want to search your entire reference library (magnifying glass SEARCH) for mentions of key themes or phrases in your passage. This will net search hits in many of my books, as well as those of classic writers including Andrew Murray, Matthew Henry, Hannah Whitall Smith, Augustine of Hippo, and more. Read these intelligently and carefully, always checking what you read against what you know to be true about Scripture and God’s character.

So Hilkiah and those whom the king had sent went to Huldah the prophetess, the wife of Shallum the son of Tokhath, son of Hasrah, keeper of the wardrobe (now she lived in Jerusalem in the Second Quarter) and spoke to her to that effect (2 Chronicles 34:22).

Step 6. Converse and Confirm Just as in our last step we began to Consult Bible scholars and writers, in this step, we’ll begin to talk with other people—our contemporaries—about the truths we’re discovering in God’s Word. This could be in casual conversation, intentionally over dinner with family, or more structured in a group Bible study. That’s the Converse step in action. By talking with others who are also digging into the Word, we gain new perspectives, maybe even new insights. We tend to internalize more of what we’re reading when we’re telling someone else about it. The important thing to remember about conversing is to be sure we ground our conversations in the truth of the Word. It’s tempting for groups to wander or meander down side trails that focus on what we feel or what we think. But only if we stay in the center of biblical truth, will our studies be God-honoring. That’s where the Confirm half of this step comes into play. All the resource books at your fingertips in WORDsearch can help you prepare to Confirm your group’s insights against biblical truth. Of special interest are the books found in the LESSONS section of your library. I prepared four Bible Study Guides especially for this software package. You may choose to go through them individually or in groups—or to use them topically, as they fit into your other studies. We’ll do the latter today. In my devotional, Names of Women of the Bible, I did a chapterlong study of one of the women mentioned in the passage—an obscure, godly woman named Huldah who spoke God’s Truth to Josiah’s messengers. Find my comments about her by opening the devotional and using its table of contents to find the chapter titled with her name. Or, do a magnifying glass search of your library for 17


Consume the Living Word her name. You’ll notice that in the devotional’s Companion Study Guide Huldah plays a key role in Study Session 2. As you’re considering how to share what you’ve been learning from 2 Chronicles 34-35 with your family, friends, or study group, you might want to go through this lesson together with them. I’ve given permission for you to copy and duplicate the Icebreaker, Questions for Contemplation and Discussion, and My Action Plan sections of these studies to use in your study groups.

And the king went up to the house of the LORD, with all the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem and the priests and the Levites, all the people both great and small. And he read in their hearing all the words of the Book of the Covenant that had been found in the house of the LORD (2 Chronicles 34:30).

Julie-Allyson Ieron Bible Reference Collection

Step 7. Confess and Conform Now is the time to make the truth we’ve gleaned from Scripture our own. It’s the time to take responsibility for our own actions, admit where we’ve failed to measure up to God’s standard, and seek His strength to act positively on what we’ve read. At this stage of a study, I return to the text of the Word, read it again from start to finish and then internalize it by copying (or memorizing) a key verse or passage to place conspicuously around my office, car, or home. This is a biblical step, to be sure. In fact, according to the directions in the book of Deuteronomy (that Josiah heard read), a king’s first order of business upon ascension to the throne over God’s people was to write with his hand, his personal copy of the book of the law. (This instruction is found in Deuteronomy 17:18-19, which is listed in the New Topical Textbook search that we performed earlier.) As we internalize the Scripture, we will find ourselves ready to make our two con-steps for this stage: Confess where we fall short and Conform to the image of Christ as revealed to us in His Word. In essence, we agree to live according to what we discover in the Word. I wrote a passage in Praying Like Jesus that might help you in the Confess portion of this step. It’s found in chapter 32. Locate and read that chapter, keying in on the text that talks about where the ultimate blame and consequences belong. To cement the Conform portion of this step in your mind, perform a search of all your Bible translations for the word conformed. Among other passages, you’ll see listed Romans 8:29 and Romans 19


Consume the Living Word 12:2. These might make good passages to hand copy for ourselves or commit to memory. Another option would be to use the software to help us, by using VERSE LIST. Return to your search list for conformed. Bring your cursor to Romans 8:29 in that list. Instead of left-clicking to open that verse in your Bible window, right-click once. A menu will pop up. Select the option: ADD ROMANS 8:29 TO NEW VERSE LIST. A new window will open called “Untitled.vrs.” Give it a file name, and it will appear below your LIBRARY and DOCUMENTS in a VERSE LIST box. You can add verses to it, reference it later, even print it out or comment on it. It’s a cool way to keep a running list of verses to recall or memorize as we Conform to the lessons of God’s Word to us.

And the king stood in his place and made a covenant before the Lord, to walk after the Lord and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes, with all his heart and all his soul, to perform the words of the covenant that were written in this book. Then he made all who were present in Jerusalem and in Benjamin join in it. And the inhabitants of Jerusalem did according to the covenant of God, the God of their fathers (2 Chronicles 34:30, 32).

20


Julie-Allyson Ieron Bible Reference Collection

Step 8. Confide and Continue As we approach the end of this study, we still have a few more things to do. We need to see that we become accountable, or for the sake of our con-statements, Confide in a trusted person those steps we plan to take. And we need to Continue making progress toward our goal of being transformed into the image of Christ. First, then, as we Confide, we need to share our desire to become more Christ-like with a prayer partner who will encourage us, hold us to our commitment, and remind us we’re accountable before God to do what we say we’re going to do. This is a subject I’ve written on often—because it’s one that’s helped motivate me to stay on the straight path. For example, in my book Pearls to Treasure (LIBRARY: LITERATURE: CHRISTIAN LIVING) I mention it in the “Pearls of Community Outreach” section, when I’m talking about accountability prayer partners to support us as we spread the gospel. In Staying True in a World of Lies, I discuss it in chapter 9 as a key to maintaining our integrity in challenging situations at work; and in Conquering the Time Factor, it appears in both chapters 6 and 12 as a time-management must-do. You can find all of these with either a magnifying glass SEARCH or a TOPICS search. The key to confiding comes in choosing an accountability partner well—choose someone who is God-directed, as you are seeking to be. Someone trustworthy who can maintain a confidence. Someone who might trust you to serve a similar purpose in his or her life— through mutual accountability. And, as you’re confiding with another person, consciously take Christ into your confidence. Seek His help as you apply the Word of God to your life as a follower of God. And be intentional about searching the Scriptures to tap into God’s strength to succeed. 21


Consume the Living Word But once we’ve gone through all the steps to this point, we may be tempted to sit back and feel proud of ourselves for all we’ve done and learned—all we’ve accomplished. That simply won’t do. That’s why we’ll conclude with a final con-action-verb: Continue. This may be the most important step of all. Continue digging. Continue searching. Continue growing toward Christ through feeding on His Word. Not just grazing—but feeding on its vast supply of spiritual nutrients. Don’t be satisfied with a dehydrated, artificial-ingredient-packed, fast-food meal. Keep digging into this and other passages to find the nourishing good stuff God longs to set before you. Go back to dig in every day—always looking for God to set before you more nutritious food that will strengthen your soul. You have enough tools in this package to keep you challenged and energized and digging-in every day—for years to come.

And Josiah took away all the abominations from all the territory that belonged to the people of Israel and made all who were present in Israel serve the Lord their God. All his days they did not turn away from following the Lord, the God of their fathers (1 Chronicles 34:33).
