DAILY MANNA (EDITOR'S CHOICE of Bible teaching)

It was the last wish of Fred Morris, Manna Publications author, to his editorial team that, under Holy Spirit guidance, "Old Testament teachings should be viewed in the light of their New Testament fulfilment and that New Testament teachings for today should be viewed in the context of God's purposes and promises expressed in the Old Testament and then applied to today".
These daily devotionals are useful for Bible teaching topics and sermon ideas from random places in the Old and New Tetaments. They will help build up a broader picture of what the Bible says at the time it was written and for today. View these daily devotions in French, Portuguese and Spanish using Google Translate.

    Genesis 26
records the last years of Isaac, before his twin son Jacob married Abraham’s relatives. There was a famine in the land of Canaan but God warned Isaac not to move down to Egypt. “Live in the land where I tell you to live... I will give all of these lands to you and your children after you. I will keep the promise I made to your father Abraham.” (26:2-5) Canaan became known as God’s Promised Land of Israel. The Philistines who lived nearby blocked up the wells dug by Isaac (26:15). So Isaac moved away from them. The LORD God Almighty spoke to him. "I am the God of your father Abraham. Do not be afraid. I am with you. I will bless you. I will increase the number of your children because of My servant Abraham." (26:24) Then Abimalech, king of the Philistines, came to Isaac and made a peace treaty with Isaac and his family (26:26-31). Later, Isaac’s other twin son Esau ‘got married to Judith, a Hittite. He also married Basemath, the daughter of Elon the Hittite. Isaac and Rebekah became very upset because Esau had married Hittite women.’ (26:34-35)
    Mark 7:24-30 records the visit of Jesus to Tyre, north of Galilee. A foreign woman came to Him drive out a demon in her daughter. He tried to ignore her by saying “I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel” (Matthew 15:24). However, because of her faith, Jesus healed her daughter. ‘She went home and found her child lying on the bed. And the demon was gone.’ (Mark 7:30)
    We note how foreigners offered peace to Abraham’s family but Esau disobeyed his father Isaac and married two foreigners. Unlike Jacob, who became God’s chosen father of the twelve tribes of Israel. We note how Jesus, despite His calling to minister to Israel, healed a foreigner. We thank you Father God for our calling to minister to all who will receive Jesus as Saviour today. Amen.

Weekend of 2nd/3rd March 2024
Revelation 3:7-13. Promises and warnings

In all the previous letters, Jesus warns each congregation to repent (2:2; 2:14; 2:22; 3:3). He does not warn the church at Philadelphia to repent.
    He gives instead a promise of divine deliverance and help. “I will keep you from the time of suffering that will come to the whole world. It will test those who live on the Earth” (3:10). Jesus does not say that trials and troubles will cease. He means He will save them from Satan. This is another wonderful promise for faithful believers!
    However, for all the churches, Jesus warns them that He will come suddenly, quickly and in judgment. For the church in Philadelphia, He uses these words of warning: “I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have. Then no-one will take away your crown” (3:11). This is a key verse for all true believers which Jesus also gives in 2:10 and 2:25. Believers must remain strong under persecution and strong under temptation.
    The troubles had left this little group of true believers weak in their faith. Whatever hurt them, Christ encouraged them with this further promise: “Then no-one will take your crown.” But they must hold on to the faith they have in God. We must do the same.
