Minor Prophets, Major Events Series

Starting June 6

To some a pearl is a valued “gem” to possess. Science has found that the beginning of a pearl is simply a small foreign substance (grain of sand) that makes it’s way into the mantle of an oyster. This small presence becomes an “irritant” that the oyster deals with by covering with nacre – the same substance that is used to form the oyster shell. So in a sense, the valued and most treasured part of an oyster is created by an irritant that enters the system from the outside. This is how the minor prophets functioned in the Old Testament. Each of these prophets became a small irritant within the existing system in hopes of bringing great Godly value to the Israelites. Get ready to enjoy these pearls of the prophets in the series “Minor Prophets, Major Events.”
