True Testimonies

HOW OFTEN do you ponder the ways of our Creator, His laws and the things that He has done for you?

Psalm 119:103 & 111 say “Your teachings are sweeter than honey. They will always be my most prized possession and my source of joy.”

TODAY, I INVITE YOU to pray with me that our Native people and those serving in Native Ministry will joyfully study our Creator’s testimonies.

Philippians 4:8 says, “Finally, my friends, keep your minds on whatever is true, pure, right, holy, friendly, and proper. Don’t ever stop thinking about what is truly worthwhile and worthy of praise.”

Proverbs 4:13 & 23 say “Hold firmly to my teaching and never let go. It will mean life for you. Carefully guard your thoughts because they are the source of true life.”

Ask our Creator to allow our First Nations people and those serving in Native Ministry to forever meditate on His Ways with joyful and thankful hearts.

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.

Trust in YHWH with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; Know Him in all your ways, and He makes all your paths straight.” The Scriptures

Proverbs 4:10-13“Hear, my son, and accept my words, and let the years of your life be many. I have taught you in the way of wisdom, I have led you in straight paths.

But to what we have already attained – walk by the same rule, be of the same mind. Become joint imitators of me, brothers, and observe those who so walk, as you have us for a pattern. For many – of whom I have often told you, and now say to you even weeping – walk as enemies of the stake of Messiah. Their end is destruction, their mighty one is their stomach, and their esteem is in their shame – they mind the earthly. For our citizenship is in the heavens, from which we also eagerly wait for the Saviour, the Master Yeshua Messiah, who shall change our lowly body, to be conformed to His esteemed body, according to the working by which He is able even to bring all under His control.” The Scriptures

Philippians 4:8-9“For the rest, brothers, whatever is true,  whatever is noble, whatever is righteous, whatever is clean, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good report, if there is any uprightness and if there is any praise – think on these.” The Scriptures
