EETAOW!

Last evening my husband Doug brought home a video that he needed to preview. He and my oldest brother Don are co-teaching the elementary things of God's word at Anchorage Native New Life Fellowship every Monday evening. They are using New Tribes Missions Firm Foundations Creation to Christ, the chronological teachings of God's word. This approach to teaching was used by New Tribes Missions when they were with the Mouk people in Papua New Guinea.

God blessed the Mouk people's intense attention to the stories and teachings found in the Bible, and you can experience it on video. I was touched to tears by their total and grateful faith in Christ. They were so relieved to be forgiven and to know Jesus Christ.

The video we watched had this plus how the Mouk people went out to other surrounding tribes to bring the Gospel message to them too.

As I watched the video and others related to it on YouTube I could not help but read the comments that "civilized" people had towards the Gospel bringing freedom from the Mouk's bondage to evil sorceries. I was sad to read their cold, cruel comments. So many now in USA don't really know God. If we did, we would be so excited to share our salvation with all that we know. We should be filled to overflowing with love for others if we are filled with love for our Savior, shouldn't we then be past strife and arguments? We should not be fighting, or looking out for ourselves only. What in your life is stopping you from knowing and loving Jesus Christ fully?

Watch this video, it give you an idea of what the DVD is like.

For your own DVD go to NTM Books.

We need to study God's Word, everyday! Morning and night if we want to know Him.

So then, faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17
No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier. 2 Timothy 2:4
Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: "The Lord knows those who are His," and "Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity." 2 Timothy 2:19

I watched the video and of course, I was crying by the time it was over! I am saddend by how we in this country don't appreciate the Gospel, the way others who have lived without it, do. We Americans in many ways are fat and lazy when it comes to Spiritual matters! It says in the Word that in the latter days, there will be an explosion of knowledge and that the message will go out to the ends of the earth. I firmly believe that we are living in those days. If not my lifetime, my children's.

"How then can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one,of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching it to them? And how can they preach unless they have been sent? As it is written,
"Beautiful are the feet of those who bring the good news"
Romans 10: 14-15

It just points up the trivialities that we sometimes focus on in the American church, doesn't it? May God forgive us.
Connie, I am so sorry you didn't find Clownie. Lots of people have this time. But thank you for taking the time to try. And thanks for the great comments on all my posts. I'd be glad to advise you on the loopin if you don't know where to start. it is so much fun! I'm still waiting to buy a funky chair to use mine as a seat cover.

It's exciting that Doug and Don are co-teaching at your church. Did they go to Papua New Guinea with this material? If so, Wow.

These are very important thoughts: So many now in USA don't really know God. If we did, we would be so excited to share our salvation with all that we know. We should be filled to overflowing with love for others if we are filled with love for our Savior, shouldn't we then be past strife and arguments?

Thanks for your passion for the Word of God.

Blessings!

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

What a great video. The gospel changes people and causes those it changes to act. What a miracle when a soul is saved. I am so thankful that I am one of those miracles. Thank you Lord. May all men hear and help me to do my part to see that they do. Thank you, Connie Marie. It was great. connie from Texas
