DAY 405 - Why are making Offerings So Important?

Praise the Lord that we have completed 400 days/24 hours Prayer Campaign! Without this prayer shield I think I might not be able to face the storm of Michelle's leukemia. You really need to believe in this kind of power of prayers! You really need to join us!

This is how the Lord commanded me more than a year ago to teach as many people as I can to pray as never before and to experience the power of prayers! Have you experienced yet?

    Message: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Numbers 28&version=MSG

    The Lord said to Moses, "Give this command to the israelites and say to them: 'See that you present to me at the appointed time the food for my offerings made by fire, as an aroma pleasing to me.'" Numbers 28:1-2

    There are lots of Christians that have this question: Why are making offerings so important?

    Jesus gave me an answer today, "Every new beginning starts with a command to make offerings. Obey, then you got a new start. Disobey and then you either repeat the whole thing again or get stuck!

    Then He asked me to read from Exodus to today's chapter in Numbers. I found out there are two sets:

    Obey: Exodus 12:1-28, Exodus 34:19-26, 35:4-40:33, Leviticus 23:4-24:9, 27:1-34, Numbers 28:1-29:40

    Disobey: Exodus 23:10-19, Leviticus 1:1 - 9:24, Numbers 7:1-9:13, 15:1-21

    I hope you understand the importance of offerings now, and become more willing to make offerings. How much you offer to a person or to something means how much they mean and are related to you. God can not be your God if you have not learnt to offer in His way. You will be stuck until you learn how to make godly offerings.

    Dear Lord Jesus,

    Help me to make offerings according to how you command me. 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:http://21ethiopiandays.wordpress.com/

    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!
