“I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread” (Psalm 37:25).
THE LORD PROVIDED IN A SOLAR POWER SYSTEM FOR KERUGMA!
So here we are at the beginning of 2021 with good news that the Lord has provided in an amazing way. Kerugma Productions has been graciously provided with a solar power system! We will tell you in a moment how it all happened. It took our thoughts back to the way in which our Lord has both guided and provided for us through these many years. We are very thankful.
As we mentioned in a previous Kerugma Bulletin, we were overwhelmed by the response we received from so many to our prayer request regarding the load shedding situation and our need for uninterrupted power supply to edit the DVDs and upload them on the internet.
Now we have the privilege to share the good news with you that the Lord heard all of your prayers! It is wonderful to experience this and really strengthens our faith. Continue reading THE LORD PROVIDED
During our recent filming trip Dr Randall Smith showed us in the city of Corinth a bema. A bema is a built up platform in a city center. There is a short video showing this bema. On the home page, under “In the steps of Paul,” you’ll find it under the heading THE JUDGEMENT SEAT OF CHRIST. Dr Smith explained that a platform or bema such as this, was the stage from where a judge would sometimes pronounce judgment. We find an example of this in Acts 18:12-16 where the Roman proconsul, Gallio, had to judge Paul at this particular bema in Corinth. However, the bema was more often used to hand laurels to winners of competitions (1 Cor. 9:25). Even today at sporting events, the winners receive their trophies while standing on a podium. Paul used the image of athletes, receiving laurels at the bema in Corinth, to describe the reward that a believer will receive:
“We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ (the bema), so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad” (2 Cor. 5:10).
How on earth do you manage that? The answer is: because our Father in heaven has provided in the most amazing way financially and we also trust Him for the strength to do it. And so we share this with you in the belief that it will encourage you. For we can rely on the promise of the Lord Jesus that states:
“In that day you will not question Me about anything. Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask the Father for anything in My name, He will give it to you” (John. 16:23).
