‚Äé120 DAYS BIBLE COMMENTARY‚ÄďFREE!
David did the best he could for his country. He put his life in his hands to fight Goliath and he won. However, David was not rewarded adequately. The most powerful man in the land, King Saul perceived him as a formidable leader, and he sought every opportunity to kill him. David had to sleep in the jungle - all by himself with no food for 3 days - waiting for his friend Jonathan to confirm what his fate would be.
In most cases, world authorities marginalize believers and refuse to serve us with balanced justice. That should not make us to drop batons and assume that God has forgotten us. God never forgets his children. We should not allow any unconducive circumstance to weaken us. Children of God must continue to trust God for deliverance. In as much as God is alive, he will remember people that faithfully serve him, and he will reward us adequately.
Review From Luke:
Jesus Christ encouraged all people not to get too busy and forget that he would return to rapture the saints. The messiah said take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man (Luke 21:34-36).
We are living in the world that is full of activities. These activities can easily block people's mind, and also blindfold them from recognizing the signs that Jesus Christ predicted would usher in his second coming. Children of God must not be carried away with events. We must consciously wait for Jesus Christ, and be ready for rapture. We must pray to be filled with the Holy Spirit that will keep us fit for heaven.
God please let your Holy Spirit guide my activities and keep me fit for rapture. Let me sing songs of victories when I arrive in your presence in heaven. For I make my requests in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
God help me to work by faith and not by sight. Help me to believe that no human circumstance can change the plans of God for my life. I receive faith to continue to trust God. In the name of Jesus Christ I made my request. Amen.

31 Days Bible Commentary from WOEM Calendar
BIBLE PASSAGE (Gen 33,34,35 Mat. 20:17-34)
Review From Genesis:
Everything went wrong for Jacob‚Äôs family in Genesis Chapter 34 because of a disobedient child.¬†Dinah, Jacob‚Äôs daughter trespassed outside a safe border, and a Hivite forced her into a relationship. Therefore, Jacob‚Äôs children killed all Hivite men. The crisis led to an overnight displacement of a happy Jacob's family. (Again, the whole troubles started with a disobedience child who would not adhere to her father‚Äôs instructions.)
Review From Matthew:
Jesus foretold what would be the end of his earthly journey. He said ‚ÄúBehold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and to the scribes; and they will condemn Him to death, and deliver Him to the Gentiles to mock and to scourge and to crucify. And the third day He will rise again.‚ÄĚ Jesus knew the dangers ahead but he was not scared. He preferred to face dangers because of you and me.
We must revere God and obey his instructions. Many unimaginable negative consequences always follow negligence and acts of disobedience.
We should never underestimate what Jesus Christ did on the cross. Even though his innocence was obvious, yet he paid ultimate penalty as a criminal. He suffered all shame for us to be saved.
Lord Jesus I thank you for all that you have suffered so that I can be saved. I cannot appreciate you enough but the token I am giving you is that, as from today, I accept you as my personal savior. Please God help me to respect you and be obedient to your commandments. Thank you Lord Jesus Christ, Amen. Go to the newsletter and Read more >>>

Effectiveness of Christmas
Christmas period seems to be the best season of the year in the western world. The mood is different, the atmosphere is cool and we love it when we decorate our houses, exchange gifts, and spend time with family and friends. Christmas mood brings the fresh memory of what the Son of God came to accomplish for humanity. The baby Jesus born in the manger would soon die to save the world. His fate required that he must live a simple lifestyle, he must not commit sin, he would be sentenced to death, and he must not make effort to defend himself. Jesus Christ faced it all. He lived a short life on earth (and resurrected to be with God in heaven)...Christmas did not come cheap. The life of Jesus Christ that we celebrate his birth today was full of crises. He suffered prejudice from his own people, he was abused by the most skilled soldiers of their time, and ultimately he suffered public shame of death on the cross.

Secrets of Halloween
Halloween celebration is increasingly becoming pronounced in the United States and some other civilized countries.¬†In fact, during economic downturn, people shut down their sense of pain and dance on the street to celebrate Halloween. People do not appear loving on October 31st when they celebrate Halloween. They look horrific; wearing vampire costumes, and wearing red colored clothes to symbolize bloodshed. Even, those who claim to dress mildly for Halloween still have some sorts of symbols in their appearances to represent evil. Go to the newsletter and Read more >>>
How¬†Authentic Are Bible Miracles?
A common argument against Christianity as we know it today is that Bible was not invented until the 4th Century A.D after the Council of Nicea. Critics claim that early Christian churches did not honor Bible as today‚Äôs Christians do. They argue that Jesus Christ was just a good moral teacher, and nobody worshipped him until Council of Nicea when the Trinity and deity of Christ were ‚Äúinvented‚ÄĚ ‚Ä¶ Simcha Jacobovici and Charles Pellegrino ventured to fault the miracle story of Jesus‚Äô resurrection ‚Ä¶ claimed the body of Jesus Christ was buried among his family; his remains were found and confirmed with scientific tests ‚Ä¶Truths are better supported by credible evidences.

Your Pathway To Deliverance
Crises of life sometimes attack us like plagues. They come in various ways to steal our joy, peace, and security. Sometimes they appear in form of financial limitation, emotional turmoil, poor health condition, and even death. Problems are enemies of peace and progress in our lives; when they reach climax, they force us to loose hope of any glimpse of deliverance. Go to the newsletter and Read more >>>

"Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holiday" which one is correct?
Christmas is not just a holiday, it should be spelled out. Christmas means much more than what our secular society is making us to believe. Christmas holiday has been celebrated in various parts of the world before President Ulysses Grant signed it into the law of United States in 1870. Christmas is a religious holiday and it is celebrated worldwide on December 25th of every year to mark the birth of Jesus Christ. Of course, someone may continue to argue about the accuracy of the particular birthday of Jesus Christ but, the effect of his birth can never be erased.

Touch Lives at Christmas 2009
The City of Nineveh was in big trouble when God called Jonah to mediate. Jonah‚Äôs mission was to announce God‚Äôs wrath and preach repentance. Jonah preached, Nineveh repented and God showed mercy. This story may seem short and sweet but that‚Äôs not all about it, there are many details to it. Jonah was not willing to mediate for Nineveh , God had to force Jonah to deliver his message before Nineveh was saved from destruction. Unfortunately, places like Nineveh are plenty but there are few mediators. Many people are dying in sin which means they are going to hell fire. This is not a sweet story! God is willing to use people like you and me to save the lost. As a result of this, our ministry, World Outreach Evangelical Ministry is announcing its annual program titled Touch Lives at Christmas (TLC) again. This program is scheduled for December 25, 2009.

The Release of¬†Christian Captives
The rebels in Afghanistan are holding twenty one (21) Christians from South Korean in hostage. The Christian group was comprised of eighteen (18) women and five (5) men but two (2) of its members have been killed. Taliban claims the reason for these people‚Äôs abduction is as a result of their professions of Christian faith and their endeavoring to preach gospels to Afghan Muslims. Read article in full >>
You May Not Need To Celebrate Christmas
A person does not need to celebrate Christmas before he or she is saved. Jesus Christ does not belong to Christian alone. He is for the Christian, the Jew, the Muslim, the Hindu, the Buddhist as well as others. Whatever your religion might be, Christ fits you well. Read article in full >>
Appreciation for the Release of¬†Christian Captives
On August 11, 2007 our ministry sent you a letter requesting for your intercessory prayers for the release of South Korean Christians that were held hostage by Taliban in Afghanistan , the BBC service announced the release of the nineteen (19) captives on August 30, 2007. Although this event seemed to have passed yet our ministry considers it necessary to update you on this matter and more importantly to appreciate your love for standing in gap for our fellow Christians by observing some moments of prayer. By now, it is made clear that the word of God is true and it remains unchanged as it is established in James 5:16 that ‚ÄúTherefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective‚ÄĚ. Read article in full >>
Errors of Davinci Code
The ‚ÄúDa Vinci Code‚ÄĚ is an adventurous book with collections that trap readers. Readers discovered at the last page that buying the book is a waste of money, time and energy. The book is full of mysteries such that many people do not want to talk about it, however there is nothing to be afraid about in Dan Brown‚Äôs write-up. In fact, Da Vinci Code should be considered a proof to measure Christians‚Äô faith. The book checks Christians to examine how steadfast their faith is grounded in the Lord. While I would not recommend Da Vinci Code for anyone, I still consider it worthwhile to address the confusions caused by its author for both the Christians and non Christian Communities.

Prayers for USA over Economic Crisis
The economic crisis of the United States is sinking and no one seems to have solution to the problem. Millions of people have lost their jobs. Some financial analysts predict this may result to depression crisis.¬† Several ways to stop this ongoing economic crisis have failed. The government economic package released in spring of 2008 appears to have little or no effect on the problem. Many industries¬†have declared bankruptcy, workers are being laid off and many families are suffering. The nation's president and the legislators are making efforts but effects of this crisis are still much felt. As a nation of God, may be this is the time to turn to God and seek his face so that He can bail us out of our economic troubles. Read article in full >>
It sounded like great news few months ago when Steven Spielberg a Hollywood artistic director an¬≠nounced the withdrawal of his bid from the Beijing Olympic Games as an artistic advisor.¬† Steve claimed his decision was based on China‚Äôs refusal to economically influence Sudan to stop Darfur genocide.¬† When this news broke out I exclaimed "finally Hollywood wants to become responsible!" I thought if Steven Spielberg who is one of the Hollywood core people can profess to support humani¬≠tarian services then; it appears that the degrading values of Hollywood can be restored again.

Obama Is Not Messiah
Barack Obama is respected in the¬†United States and other parts of the world as a formidable reformer of country impoverished economy, yet Obama is not the messiah. He does not have power to change this world. Obama and everyone should be hopeful in God for a better tomorrow. We must reserve our trust in the only infallible God who has power to make old things become new. Jeremiah 17:5 states "Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the Lord." Read article in full >>
Vote for Change
As every presidential candidate campaigns for change in the United States today, a question that is worth asking you as a Christian is ‚Äėwho is your preferred candidate and what change do you really want from him or her‚Äô? ¬†Do you want a change from evil to good or a change from good to evil? If we Christians clearly define our expectations, we will take the right steps to choose a God-fearing person to lead this great country for the next four years. Read article in full >>

Taking the gospel to people in remote places may never be possible except through faithful men and women that are committed unto God. These people have courage to risk their lives and attempt all means to spread gospel of Jesus Christ. Read article in full >>
Urgent Message for Every Nigerian
In the wake of May 1, 2006, the Lord gave a special message that Satan and his evil forces plan to launch a civil war attack against Nigeria . God specified in this vision that the period of civil war will be complemented with a terrible famine that Nigeria has not experienced in its history. Citizens of the land will fight over rotten foods on the streets to survive. The war would result into epidemic diseases which will claim many lives. Read article in full >>
