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. Incredible Roman Aqueduct of Caesarea photo. Thank you Jesus for rescuing our souls!!! Blessings fellow saints in the Lord–stay safe out there, today!

    Irene, I am wondering which photos you were in from the trip to Israel you went on so we could look to that date and see you!

    “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:34-35 NIV

  2. Beautiful worship song, Beverlee. Thank you. Went to healing services that David held @ the Crossroads Centre (the Lord told him to do that). My husband died shortly after (suddenly & unexpectedly) but the Lord had made His Presence known to me – I was slain in the Spirit after David anointed me with oil. This also happened again @ Lakemount Worship Centre in Grimsby. It gave me great comfort knowing that the Lord was so near when the doctor told us my husband had only about 2 weeks to live. X-rays showed cancer in vital organs. He passed @ Christmas when family was all here. (daughter is a Calgarian) & other are in other parts of Ontario. The Lord was with us.

    • Amen, Doreen. Praise God your husband passed at such a special time as Christmas, with all his family by his side. So encouraging knowing he was going to heaven to see the face of our precious Jesus. Praise God I was also at that anointing service at Crossroads Centre, a few months before major back surgery. Blessings to you, dear sister-in-Christ.

    “This IS THE DAY THAT THE LORD HAS MADE WE WILL REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT”
