As For Me and My Family, We’ll Serve The Lord

The Covenant at Sechem

15 If you decide that it’s a bad thing to #worship #G-d, then choose a god you’d rather serve —- and do it today. Choose one of the gods your #ancestors worshiped from the country beyond The River, or one of the gods of the Amorites, on whose land you’re now living. “As for me and my family, we’ll woship G-D!”

Joshua 24:15 from Bible The Message version

Listen to God’s Truth

An Asaph Psalm

1 Listen, dear friends, to God’s truth, bend your ears to what I tell you.

2 I’m chewing on the morsel of a proverb; I’ll let you in on the sweet old #truths:

3 Stories we heard from our #fathers, counsel we learned at our #mother’s knee.

4 We’re not keeping this to outserlves, we’re passing it along to the next #generation—- God’s #fame and #fortune, the marvelous things he has done.

5 He planted a #witness in Jacob, set his Word firmly in #Israel, Then commanded our #parents to trach it to their children.

6 So the next #generations to come —- Know the #truth and tell the stories so their children 7 can #trust in God, Never forget the works of God but keep his commands to the letter.

8 Heaven forbid they should be loke their parents, #bulheaded and bad, A fickle and #faithless-bunch who never stayed true to God.

Psalm 78:1-8 from Bible The Message version.

Fasting and Pentecost (BC and AD)

Hari ini untuk yang ke-22 kali saya melakukan ritual puasa dengan tidak makan selama 12 jam dan hanya minum.

David Pawson, dalam bukunya yang berjudul “Unlocking The Bible”, menjelaskan tentang kejadian Pentecost sewaktu jaman bangsa Israel 50 hari setelah keluar dari Mesir (BC) dan jaman Israel 50 hari setelah Yesus bangkit dari kematian (AD).

Nabi Musa turun dari Gunung Sinai setelah 40 hari disana, dan pada saat Musa turun, bangsa Israel telah menyembah dewa Banteng berbentu tanduk dari emas. 50 hari setelah Passover (bangsa Israel keluar dari tanah Mesir), kerena menyembah dewa dari tanduk berbentu emas, Allah membunuh 3,000 orang.
10 Perjanjian Allah diberikan di Gunung Sinai 50 hari setelah domba Passover dibunuh. Domba Passover dibunuh jam 3pm dan 3 hari sejak itu bangsa Israel lepas/bebas dari perbudakan bangsa Mesir. 50 hari setelah Passover, hukum diberikan kepad bangsa Israel, hari yang menurut bangsa Jahudi sebagai Pentecost. 3,000 orang mari karena melanggar hukum (Keluaran/Exodus).
Hal ini sama 50 hari diabad berikutnya, ketika bangsa Jahudi merayakan diberikannya hukum, Allah memberikan Roh Kudus (Holy Spirit) – dan pada waktu ini 3,000 orang diselamatkan (Kisah Para Rasul/Act).

Bagaiman kita memaknai hari Pentecost?
