Sacrifice

by Geoge Nchindo -

The Sanctuary in Old Testament Times

Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an offering: of every man that giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall take my offering. Exodus 25:2.

God Himself gave to Moses the plan of that structure [the sanctuary], with particular directions as to its size and form, the materials to be employed, and every article of furniture which it was to contain. The holy places made with hands were to be “figures of the true” (Hebrews 9:24), “patterns of things in the heavens” (Hebrews 9:23)—a miniature representation of the heavenly temple where Christ, our great high priest, after offering His life as a sacrifice, was to minister in the sinner’s behalf....

For the building of the sanctuary, great and expensive preparations were necessary; a large amount of the most precious and costly material was required; yet the Lord accepted only freewill offerings. “Of every man that giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall take my offering,” was the divine command repeated by Moses to the congregation. Devotion to God and a spirit of sacrifice were the first requisites in preparing a dwelling place for the Most High.

All the people responded with one accord. “They came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing, and they brought the Lord’s offering to the work of the tabernacle of the congregation, and for all his service, and for the holy garments. And they came, both men and women, as many as were willing hearted, and brought bracelets ...: and every man that offered offered an offering of gold unto the Lord.” Exodus 35:21, 22....

The people, old and young—men, women, and children—continued to bring their offerings, until those in charge of the work found that they had enough, and even more than could be used....

All who love the worship of God, and prize the blessing of His sacred presence, will manifest the same spirit of sacrifice in preparing a house where He may meet with them.

If there was ever a time when sacrifices should be made, it is now.

I will go....to my classmates

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes” – Romans 1:16
 
“Take your religion into your school life, into your boarding house, into all your pursuits.”  – Messages to Young People, p. 36
 
“[Satan] well knows that there is no other class that can do as much good as young men and young women who are consecrated to God. The youth, if right, could sway a mighty influence. Preachers, or laymen advanced in years, cannot have one-half the influence upon the young that the youth, devoted to God, can have upon their associates. They ought to feel that a responsibility rests upon them to do all they can to save their fellow mortals, even at a sacrifice of their pleasure and natural desires. Time, and even means, if required, should be consecrated to God.” – Messages to Young People, p. 204
 
HEART QUESTIONS:
Are you in school? Do you have classmates, fellow students who are in pursuit of a degree and good education? Do you realize that what you have to offer – the gospel – is of much more value than a degree or any education this world can offer? Do your classmates know that you are a Christian, a Seventh-day Adventist? Or maybe you graduated a long time ago. Do you still have connections or friendships with former classmates?
God is calling you, whether you are a student in a Christian or a public setting, to be a light to your fellow classmates. Whether you interact with them on the phone, online (due to the pandemic) or in person, shine the light of Jesus!
If you are a parent, you are called to help your child in showing them how to love like Jesus, and how to share the gospel.
Will you choose today to become a missionary to the people on your school campus, an ambassador for Jesus to your former/current/future classmates?

“But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.” – 1 Timothy 5:8

 

“. . . you must be earnest, firm, and decided to do your duty in your family, and take them with you if possible. You should spare no effort to prevail upon them to accompany you on your heavenward journey.” – The Adventist Home, p. 352

We know how the story Ends

by Geoge Nchindo -

We Know How the Story Ends

By Mark Finley

One of the major reasons we don’t have to ever live in fear, consumed with worry and anxiety is because we know how the story ends. We know that sickness will not have the last word: Christ will. We know the coronavirus, or any other virus, natural disaster, calamity or nuclear war will not destroy all life on planet Earth. We have the promise of Jesus return. We see famines. We see earthquakes. We see distress of nations. We see the rise of a possible nuclear war. We see the potential of nuclear disaster. We see climate change. We see pestilences taking the lives of thousands.

We see these things, but we have a hope that enables us to thrive in life’s toughest times. There is a sense of confidence that takes us through because we've read the last chapters of the Bible. We know how the story ends. In Revelation 21 verses 4 and 5, John writes, “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes, there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying, and there shall be no more pain, for the former things are passed away. Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold I make all things new.” Along with the apostle Paul we “are looking for the blessed hope and the glorious appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ.”(Titus 2:13) 

We are Adventists and have not forgotten our heritage. Christ is coming again and coming soon. If we ever lose our vision of the coming of Christ, we will lose our hope. We are Adventists. We look beyond what is, to what will be. We look beyond today to tomorrow. We look beyond sickness to health. We look beyond the pestilences that are carried through the air to the pure air where there will be no more pestilences.

In the ever-increasing natural disasters, political turmoil, economic uncertainty and raging pestilences we see the signs of the coming of our Lord. Although God does not cause these disasters, He has a purpose in allowing them to occur. He is calling us to totally, completely, depend upon Him. He is calling us to our knees. He is calling us to a deeper prayer life and a richer Bible Study experience. He is revealing to us that there is no certainty in the world we live in. Christ is our assurance. He is our security. He is our Savior, our Redeemer, our Deliver, our coming King. What does this virus do when we see it spreading so rapidly?  It calls us to our senses.

This world is not all that there is.  Christ is speaking to you and to me. Our lives are fragile. Every single one of us live in these fragile earthen bodies. But beyond what is, there is something better yet coming - and that is the glory of Christ. There is something worth living for beyond this life and that's Jesus Christ. Allow Him to fill your heart, to take away your fears, strengthen your resolve and prepare you for His soon return.

Promise of Life

by Geoge Nchindo -
The Promise of Life

“. . . Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live, loving the Lord your God, obeying His voice and holding fast to Him, for He is your life and length of days, that you may dwell in the land that the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.” – Deuteronomy 30:19-20
 
“The Life-giver will call up His purchased possession in the first resurrection, and until that triumphant hour, when the last trump shall sound and the vast army shall come forth to eternal victory, every sleeping saint will be kept in safety and will be guarded as a precious jewel, who is known to God by name. By the power of the Saviour that dwelt in them while living and because they were partakers of the divine nature, they are brought forth from the dead.” – Maranatha, p. 300
 
HEART QUESTIONS:
What a wonderful truth! God, the Source of all Life, is willing to give to all who believe the power to live a life of love, faithfulness, and righteousness on this side of heaven. But not only that, He also gladly bestows eternal life to His children, for them to live with Him forever in perfect health, bliss, joy, and harmony! Praise Him!
Have you taken hold of the life-giving, life-transforming, and life-enriching good-news-reality that is available to you in Jesus? Are you looking forward to resurrection day, when all who believe will receive an immortal body to enjoy eternal life with our most precious, and loving God?

Calling on Jesus in Our Urgent Need
 
Prayer Focus (Day 91)

PRAISE REPORTS: 
  • Carme A.: I’m a single, full-time mom of three boys, full-time student, working, and I am heavily involved in ministry in our church. Despite the massive demands on my time and strength, God is carrying me through. We have been doing the 100 Days of Prayer program virtually with the children, youth, and adults every day. The young are very engaged, praying, and asking questions. Despite financial needs for schooling, I can praise God for teaching me so much and blessing me so much during this time of the pandemic. I enjoy doing ministry!
  • We praise the Lord that some mission workers in the Middle East are experiencing renewed spiritual strength. Some of them were far removed from the congregation due to discouragements and a lack of revival. But because of the online united prayer during 100 Days of Prayer, they longed to be part of a church community again.
     
PRAYER REQUESTS:
  • Pray for an experience of the abundant life that Jesus promised you. 
  • Pray for all Adventist immigrants, and for individuals who are living on visas, who, because of their legal status, have no access to government help during this pandemic. Pray that they will be provided with the necessities of life.
  • Pray for all Adventists and non-Adventists who are infected by COVID-19.
  • Pray for the Rostok School in Russia, which serves children with special needs, providing a loving, Christ-centered curriculum that brings joy to children and parents alike. Please pray for God’s blessing for this important ministry and its staff, students, and parents.
