The book of Deuteronomy is the fifth book in the Old Testament Pentateuch or Jewish “Torah.” It is the last book that Moses wrote, leading to his death and the eventual rise of his assistant Joshua to leadership over the nation of Israel.
While many people might consider Deuteronomy as merely a long list of laws and rules, it actually serves as a reminder to never forget to honor and obey the Lord our God, who, in the same way He delivered Israel from slavery in Egypt, has delivered us from slavery to sin through Christ.
The word “Deuteronomy” is “eleh ha-devarim” in Hebrew, which means “these are the words.” In Ancient Greek, it is “Deuteronómion” which means “second law” or a “copy of this law,” signifying…. read more
I always enjoy receiving an update from the Rural Mobil Gospel Mission of India.There are many who attempt to find peace in their current religion, or by their own means.. What comes to mind, and is proven throughout history.. To know peace is to know Jesus!
The testimonies of new believers speaks for itself. I am thankful that they were reached through hearing the Gospel, and were given a Bible to strengthen their journey. In America it is easy to get a Bible, and some have multiple copies.. but in many country’s of the world, they are either forbidden, or new believers can not afford to obtain one. $3.00 can provide a Telugu Bible for those who are in need, and supplies are shorter than demand.. Please consider donating a Bible today, they are sent to Rural Mobil Gospel Mission.~Testimonies~… read more
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For through wisdom your days will be many, and years will be added to your life” (Proverbs 9:10-11)
Interestingly, the beginning of wisdom, according to the Holy Scripture, begins with the fear of the Lord. All good things begin with the Lord and our reverence and respect for Him. Godly wisdom leads to the beginning of understanding. Understanding lends itself to responsibility. Responsibility calls for action. Action brings change. Change can affect everything it touches.
It’s no wonder everything we do, whether big or small, be done in the fear of the Lord. It is the standard we should adhere to as sons and daughters of the King in order to both obey and obtain true wisdom… read more
The other day, I arrived at the bus stop where four Asian ladies were indiscriminately passing out New Testament Bibles. When one of the ladies offered me a Bible, I tried to decline. But she was insistent, so I tried to change the subject.
“What church are you with?” I asked.
She said she was with a non-denominational, evangelical church and again offered me a Bible.
“Thanks but I already have one,” I replied.
“That’s okay,” she said, “this one has footnotes. Take it. It’s free.”
I realized there was no sense in trying to tell her that my Bible also had footnotes. It was going to be easier to take her Bible than to repeatedly turn her down, so I took it and a tract that came with it…. [read more]
A former imam from Egypt with strong family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood leadership who converted to Christianity, said Friday that some Muslims in the U.S. are using “Islamic deception” to fool Christians into believing misconceptions about the religion.
Mark Christian, who became a Sunni imam at the young age of 13 because his great uncle was a co-founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, detailed during a webinar hosted by the American Pastors Network how he began to question Islam around the age of 23, and eventually left the religion. He explained that he lived “dead inside” for a period of six or seven years before the “truth” ultimately led him on a journey to Christ that took over 10 to 15 years.
“If I look back at my life, I see that Jesus was at every corner trying to get me in, and many times I listened and many, many times, I ran away,” Christian said. “But God lured me in and I became a follower of Jesus Christ, and my story is really in the process of being put in a book.”… [read more]
