HAVE YOU ever rejected something because of it’s ‘age’, thus neglecting it’s value and purpose?
Deuteronomy 32:7-8 says: “Think about past generations. Ask your parents or any of your elders. They will tell you that God Most High gave land to every nation. He assigned a guardian angel to each of them”
TODAY, I INVITE YOU to pray with me that our Native people and those serving in Native Ministry will be encouraged to pursue Christ, as well as seek, respect and remember the ancient ways of our Creator.
The Lord said in Jeremiah 6:16, “My people, when you stood at the crossroads, I told you, “Follow the road your ancestors took, and you will find peace.”
Ask our Creator to allow our First Nations people and those serving in Native Ministry to consider the days of old, the years of many generations, and allow them to ask our fathers and elders about Him.

I like to study with 5 translations. As you go through these studies, I encourage you to do the same. “The Scriptures” is a translation that includes the original Hebrew names and has the books in chronological order. The Contemporary English Version (CEV) is a translation that is written for ‘oral tradition’ peoples and it flows well while reading it aloud. The Amplified version is one where meanings of words and phrases are ‘amplified’ for better understanding. The King James Version (KJV) is the translation that works well with Strong’s Concordance. The Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) is a great companion version that I find gives great insight.
The scriptures pertaining to ‘ancient’, whether from CEV, NIV or KJV, use the Hebrew word (#5769) meaning ‘continuing out of sight and out of mind’, implying eternal, always, and perpetual. It does NOT mean something that only had meaning in the past. Often the Body of Christ will misinterpret these Scriptures, quickly suggesting that our people forsake the teachings and ways of our ancestors. We need to look at our ways, and those of our ancestors, as they reflect our Creator, not based on how old or new they are.
