7 Reasons why Christians should Read the Old Testament/Covenant ( or Hebrew Bible )

I meet many Christians who disregard the old Testament/Convenant.  Hopefully my arguement here will convince them otherwise.

1. You will understand the New Testament/Covenant better.  Numerous references and allusions are made to it.

2. God’s Promises, Warnings and Curses are still effective today.  The Bible says His Word will stand forever and never fail/fall.

3. The Christian faith was birth fromthe Hebrew faith.  This is recorded in the Hebrew Bible or Old Covenant/Testament.

4. We wouldn’t need Jesus to cover our sins if the laws of the First Convenat didn’t have power over us.  The Blood Jesus redeems us from the curse of the law.

5. There are many patterns and foreshadowings that explain history and coming events.  Some are written plainly; some are in code.

6. A revelation of God’s Name, Character, and Nature are given to you.  Although, they are all encompassed in the Name of Jesus, you comprehend what all of them are.

7. The stories are better than any movie, radio, or tv program.  They are more lovely, dramatic and gruesome for the imaginative mind.

Sinner’s Prayer:

Dear Lord & Father, You are the Creator of all things and I know you created me. But I recognize I am a sinner through Adam's Fall and you sent your only Son, Jesus Christ to live, die and be raised from the dead for me. I repent of my sins and renounce all evil works and serving of other, lower, and lesser gods before thee. Come into me life and cleanse me by your Blood. Make me whole and well by your Holy Spirit. I now desire to live for you. Let your Holy Spirit guide me in all things. In the Name of Jesus Christ, AMEN!

Scripture of the Month-March

Things to consider:

Jesus never charged for His Sermons, Preaching, Healing, etc...why should we put His Anointing on books, tapes, and cds, and charge people for it? I recall How angry Jesus was when the leaders of the Church of His time altered the purpose of the temple and made it a business. Shouldn't we too, be afraid to do the same? UPDATE: a minister pointed out, He didn't have to because His own people were financing Him. They were wealthy...
