Here at 1 of 10 we are excited for the coming new year. It has been a tough year for all of us. COVID-19 has transformed the entire world and every thing has been impacted including ministry work.
We have big plans here at 1 of 10 ministries for 2021. We hope to grow into a full-time teaching ministry.
We plan to develop 1 of 10 podcast into a 30 minute weekly production. We also plan to have a daily devotional podcast. We hope to perform weekly Bible studies live on social media platforms.
And hopefully by end of the year we can establish a Bible study telecast that airs 2 times a week with the potential of more in the future.
The blog will contain fresh new post that are updated regularly. As well as links to the various media productions that we create here at 1 of 10.
That said this is only possible with your support. We hope to apply for nonprofit tax exempt status this year. We also will have to upgrade our equipment with the most expensive piece equipment being a new MacBook Pro that is capable of handling the productions that we will be creating here at the ministry. We also have a need for better microphones, lights, and professional software.
To make 1 of 10 a reality and to help us reach these amazing goals we are stepping out in faith. I am asking you to please help us raise money to start this ambitious ministry goals. You can donate at the link below. Help us take Christ to the nations and to equip the saints!
Please consider partnering with our ministry by donating at the link below. We are hoping to raise $7500 to upgrade some equipment into file for nonprofit status. Every dollar you donate will go directly into the ministry. God bless
And Abraham named that place The LORD Will Provide, so today it is said: “It will be provided on the LORD’s mountain.” (Gen 22:14)
Genesis 22 presents the story of Abraham being told to take his son Isaac to a mountain to be sacrificed. This story troubles many who read it. Why would God ask such a task from anyone, they question. However, the lesson of the chapter can be found within the context of the story of Abraham.
Abraham and Sarah are well in age when they received the promise that they would have a son Isaac. In fact the conception of Isaac and his birth is a forgotten miracle in the Bible as Sarah was beyond the age of having children.
God promised and delivered on the promise that Abraham and Sarah would have a child and Abraham would have descendants as numerous as the stars of the sky. In Genesis 22 when Abraham is asked to take Isaac, his promised son and sacrifice him he does so without question. Why? Because he has faith that God will deliver on his promise even when he was not sure how God would deliver.
When the Angel called out as Abraham was about to sacrifice Isaac it is not surprising Abraham stopped and did not seem to be caught of guard by the intervention of God. His faith is amazing and Abraham demonstrated his fear of God through his obedience. Abraham trusted God even with the thing he loved most, his one and only son with Sarah.
Fast forward to the modern world. Is there anything that we are afraid to withhold from God because we lack faith that God will provide what He has promised. Remember the words of the angel, “Do not lay a hand on the boy,” he said. “Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son” (Genesis 22:12.
To fear the Lord is to not withhold anything in our lives from Him. This is the lesson of this event. God wants your all. He wants your most precious things you hold dear in life trusted to Him. When we do we show that we fear the Lord, and always remember even when we do not see we can have faith that the Lord will provide.
To study the Bible is not a choice that a Christian can decide to do or not to do, but it is the duty of all Christians to study the word of God. When studying the word of God Christians must be careful in their approach in order to get the most of of their time spent in the Bible. Here are three simple tips that are crucial for studying the Bible.
1. The first Tip is to approach Bible study through prayer. Do not simply jump into reading a passage of scripture without first going to the Lord in prayer. The way to approach your Bible study is to ask the Holy Spirit to be your guide, to open up the word of God for you and to assist you in understanding.
2. Do not skip around in the Bible. Pick one book and read all the way through that book before moving on to other areas in the Bible. I would suggest if you are a new Christian to read all four Gospel accounts before moving on to any other area of scripture. When we read books we do not simply open a book and read a paragraph here and there and then the next time we open the book and randomly start reading some other portion. The Bible should be approach the same way in order to understand what we are reading we must allow the Bible to present its content fully.
3. The third tip for Bible study is to highlight or take notes of what you’re reading. By highlighting or taking notes it will help you absorb and memorize more of the Bible then you would otherwise if you was just reading through it.
The word of God is our means as Christians to understanding God. Frequent Bible study is crucial for growing our faith. By approaching Bible study in prayer and by reading the Bible in proper order and highlighting or taking notes are three simple tips that allows a Christian to grasp the word of God more fully.
