A mother and her children enjoy some moments together at Nazareth Village. The people who demonstrate life as it was 2,000 years ago are dedicated believers in Jesus. Most of them are members of the Nazareth Baptist Church. Rev. Nizar Shaheen, my son-in-law, was ordained as a Minister of Christ in this church. The church operates a school, kindergarten through high school, that has about 1,000 students. Let us pray for this church, and others in Nazareth, as they face some difficult times.

Key Verses: Proverbs 22:20-21

Have I not written to you excellent things
Of counsels and knowledge,
That I may make you know the certainty of the words of truth,
That you may answer words of truth
To those who send to you?

 

The translation used in this blog is the New King James Version. I hope to do as our key verse says. There is counsel and knowledge here in this daily  blog. There is “certainty of the words of truth.” Amen!!!

Let us consider another proverb found in Proverbs 22:2. “The rich and poor have this in common, the Lord is Maker of them all.” Rich and poor have more in common than this. He is the only Saviour. He is the Judge of the universe and everything in it. He is Lord to all who give Him our lives. No matter how much money anyone has, salvation cannot be purchased by money. No matter how poor anyone is, they cannot be refused salvation, providing they ask in repentance and faith, because eternal life was paid for in full by Jesus Christ on the Cross! Salvation is free to all who come to Jesus and ask to be saved. If we have further questions about our eternal salvation, call our Crossroads prayer line at 1-866-273-4444. A loving caring person will answer. over 1,000 people every day call that number!

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Lord God, I’m going back to the key verse again and forming it into a prayer so that I may help others more and more. I also pray again that prayer which rich or poor must pray in order to have assurance of salvation and eternal life. “Lord, be merciful to me a sinner.” I have confidence that You save me because Jesus said so (Luke 18:9-14). Yes! Amen!

100 PERSONAL WORDS:

I’m using consistently the New King James translation of the Bible. Today I want to tell a story of the giving heart of the largest publisher of Bibles in the world, Sam Moore, the man who, along with God, is the main reason we have the “New King James Version.”

In 1983 my daughter married a young man from Cana of Galilee, the village famous for Jesus’ first miracle, turning the water into wine at a wedding feast. Sam Moore printed 2,000 Bibles in Arabic and embossed the names of Ellen and Nizar on the cover as gifts for all who attended. Nizar, as the heavy-weight boxing champion for the Galilee area, attracted at least 2,000 men, mostly Muslims, to his wedding. The Word of God was put into their hands. Now many of these same men listen to the Gospel daily as Nizar shares the Word of God on television. Sam will be embarrassed to read this here, but I want to honour this man who paid for a wonderful honeymoon for these newlyweds. These are just two more reasons why I quote the NKJV.

Yours for the “Words of Truth” to be made known!!!

David

  1. “Do not remove the ancient landmark
    Which your fathers have set.”
    -Proverbs 22:28

    Dear Lord, thank You for Your advent into this world. You came and died for us. Yet You live – You overcame death – You are the Way to eternal life. Your Word never changes – You are the one unchangeable part of life because You are the source of life.
    As David prayed, help all Your children to be helpful to others. Bless all Your workers today; refresh them and fill them to overflowing with Your Holy Spirit, in Jesus’s great, great and holy name, amen

  2. Such great wisdom in today’s reading. We saw parts of Ellen & Nizar’s wedding on TV at the time. Wonderful. My heart is heavy after hearing last night, that Marcus Lamb passed away @ 64. He and his wife had made such amazing in roads for the proclamation of the Gospel around the world (the only Christian TV station in Israel). His amazing family is deeply affected. Father, in Jesus Name, comfort & provide help for them. Amen and amen.

  3. Amen to the prayers and praise God for all that Marcus and Joni have accomplished, and please give Joni and his family strength to carry on the Ministry. They certainly blessed many.
    Praying as we head into the Christmas Season that we do not lose sight of the fact tha JESUS is the reason for the season. God Bless each and everyone.
