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. Lord God, we certainly do need Your intervention in our lives, so we ask You to please have Your way in us, our families, our workplaces, our towns, provinces, and throughout this land. Put Your spotlight on us – show us where we are wrong and help us turn to You. Purify us and help us love You and others as we ought to, in Jesus’s great name, amen

  2. Amen,Rob.On-the-nose.
    I was still about 6 months away from reading the bible when I wrote this:
    Abide In Me

    Abide in Me and I will give you life,
    For if you first seek Me out sincerely
    Then you will share what grows rife,
    In My grace where you are held dearly.

    You are a branch and I am the tree,
    With Me you will know life eternal,
    But if cut off from your life with Me,
    You are doomed to a life infernal.

    So into my open arms you must flee,
    For I love all who seek out my trust,
    To accept the love,abundant and free,
    Instead of greed that turns all to dust.

  3. Amen Rob. Praying that the Lord will be with all those standing in need of prayer in their lives. He knows all of our needs and will provide if we but ask and believe

  4. Hi everyone,
    Joining a Christian tour of Israel has been a long-time dream and goal. I am now retired and would like to determine if this is still a possibility. Can anyone provide some direction as to how I can go about getting some information. Are such tours being planned on a regular basis? Any assistance would be much appreciated. God bless you all.
    George
