HARVEST

Today’s Reading: Numbers 29

The sun sets through the Roman Aqueduct of Caesarea. The aqueduct, originally built by Herod in the first century BC, was repaired and expanded by the Romans in the second century AD. It conveyed water to the city from springs at the foot of Mt. Carmel, over 10 kilometres away. Yesterday, our tour group visited here and marvelled at this engineering marvel.

Key Verse: Numbers 29:39

These you shall present to the Lord at your appointed feasts (besides your vowed offerings and your freewill offerings) as your burnt offerings and your grain offerings, as your drink offerings and your peace offerings.

 

Moses knew that he would not lead the people into the Promised Land. Therefore, he reviews for the new generation the details of the three sacrifices that were to be made. These would ensure that Israel would not overlook their divinely assigned obligations.

As Christians, we are not bound by the ceremonial laws of Moses. Nevertheless, we too have obligations. We can think of several, I’m sure. For the purpose of this blog, I’ll highlight one: READING GOD’S WORD DAILY…2 Timothy 3:14-17 (click here or look it up in your Bible). Verse 15 informs us that the Scriptures will “make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.” The result will be that we will be “complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” (verse 17).

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Lord Jesus, I thank You for keeping me faithful to follow this daily blog. You promised wisdom if I would ask. I ask You now for wisdom, and I plan to continue to do so every morning. I’m not doubting Your promise. In James 1:5 You said You would give wisdom liberally. Amen!

100 PERSONAL WORDS:

James also wrote, “Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up…” (James 5:14-15). This past Sunday morning, Norma-Jean and I attended Cedarview Church in Paris, Ontario. I went forward for prayer for healing. The pastor’s wife, Elaine Tonn, anointed me with oil and prayed a prayer of faith. I believe that all the faith necessary to remain in the centre of God’s will is to be obedient to His Word.

Below are two photos from a visit to the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem. We had communion together with our tour group and anointed with oil any sick among us who needed healing. We also prayed with each individual who needed an intervention of God in their lives, in their families, or in their circumstances. I’m praying the same thing for all who read this blog!

Yours for a thorough knowledge of God’s Word,

David

  1. Thank You Lord, for reminding me, by looking back over the years on this blog, the power of prayer for one another. We are not lost because You are with us. We are free because You have loved us. We are safe because You have redeemed us. We are cared for because Your hand is upon us. You are the miracle maker who has sustained us. You are the way, the truth and the life. You are the God who needs us. Amen. Wishing all saints a blessed day in the Lord.

    I cried out to God for help; I cried out to God to hear me.
    I remembered you, God, and I groaned; I meditated, and my spirit grew faint.
    Your ways, God, are holy. What god is as great as our God?
    You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples. Psalm 77:1, 3, 13, 14

  2. Very anointed worship song, Beverlee. Thank you. Strict measures taking place in Toronto & Peel (where my son and family live). It will be a different Christmas this year. My youngest son’s meeting went well yesterday although had to move location because of Covid. Thanks everyone. May God be especially close to those facing challenges, in Jesus Name. Amen
