DAY 382 - Unfaithfully Yours

Today's Reading: Numbers 5

Please read Numbers 5 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog. You may click this link directly for the method:Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf. (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)

Message: 5&version=MSG

The Lord said to Moses, "Say to the Israelites: 'When a man or woman wrongs another in any way and so is unfaithful to the Lord, that person is guilty and must confess the sin he has committed."

Numbers 4: 49

When I read this chapter, I remembered a movie released in 1983 called "Unfaithfully Yours" by two main actors Dudley Moore and Nastassja Kinski. It's about a famous music composer and orchestral conductor who believes that his wife is having an affair with a handsome violinist. So he planned to kill both his wife and the man!

Jealousy kills. The Spirit of jealousy is such a evil spirit that it captures so many people and pulls them away from God into darkness.

Jesus told me today about the importance of being pure, clean, holy and faithful. God gave detailed instructions and steps for the Israelites to be pure, clean, holy and faithful. How about today? We do not need to follow those rules that God gave to the Israelites in that culture and time, but what have we got?

Do you have a daily intimate relationship with God so that the Holy Spirit can exercise His power in you? Only the Holy Spirit can show us all those sins we are not aware of and those we do not want to repent so that we can be transformed to be more like Christ.

Dear Holy Spirit,

Review in me my sins so that I know how to repent. Cleanse me Lord Jesus with your blood that I can be faithful to you. You are my Savior, my King and my Lord of life. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

My son, Ignatius, completed his three weeks mission in Ethiopia a few days ago.We are so joyful to welcome him home and know that he experienced God mightily in that three weeks. His one word of experience is "JOY"! Please click this link to read his wonderful sharing:

Face book version:

Welcome! The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christians to have daily devotion - a wonderful and intimate time with Jesus.
There are three reasons for you to use this blog as your daily devotion:
1. A healthy spiritual diet - One chapter of the Bible daily. We really need at least one chapter of Bible daily so that we are well fed.
2. A good example of Spiritual Journaling - What I have committed for 1,189 days(the Bible has 1,189 chapters)to write this daily post is not for teaching purposes but this is my daily spiritual journal - I write down what I hear from Jesus and how I experience His intimate relationship with me each day. I have launched a wide-spectrum research on daily devotion and have found out that there are less than 10% of Christians that are having daily devotion. Out of that 10%, many having daily devotion are doing so because of guilt (they know that they are Christians and need to have daily devotion and feel guilty if they don’t do that), duty (they need to fulfill their duty as a Christian) or study(lots of Christians primarily use their daily devotion as a time to study the Bible). I do pray and hope that you will make up your mind to have a relational daily devotion so that you can have an intimate time with Jesus. I pray that you will write your own spiritual journal as well.
3. An online discipler – One of the reasons that so many Christians do not have daily devotion is because they do not have a discipler. A discipler can help them build up this basic element of discipleship when they first become Christians. The best way for you is to have a discipler to walk with you for a certain period of time so that daily devotion become a good habit. Or, you may have a small group of two to three people to encourage and be accountable to each other so that you won’t stop your daily devotion. I offer myself as your online discipler to walk with you daily to enrich your spiritual journey. So, shall we start this journey with Jesus Christ our Lord now!

    1. Speaking of a personal intimate daily relationship with Jesus, here are a few quotes for AW Tozer that I find really helpful: 1) To desire revival and at the same time to neglect prayer and devotion is to wish one way and walk another. 2) The key to prayer is simply praying.
      3) Prayer is the most sacred occupation that a person could engage in. 4) The widest thing in the universe is not space. It is the potential capacity of the human heart.

      May the Lord Jesus continue to spark this vision of raising people from the 10% daily devotions to a much more engaged level. Bring revival Lord, beginning with us. In Jesus' name. Amen.

    2. Yes, yes, thanks Ed! Let's work hard together to bring revival!
