A Tool for Bible Study, Prayer, and Teaching April 21, 2021


Solomon said, “Of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh” (Ecclesiastes 12:12). This is the life verse of every college student! In fact, each year in the United States alone there are between 600,000 and 1 million books published. We all have a long list of books we need to – intend to – read.

When I write something it is always with a desire to be a help to someone and a prayer that God will use it however He chooses. Recently I wrote a little book on The Need of Our Nation. It is a brief study of two Old Testament passages and two New Testament passages that give eternal truth to those who are burdened for their nation.

Our country is in trouble. Only God can turn the tide. Some group of Christians has to find His burden and believe that He is able. This is the need of our nation.

I am not asking you to read the book. I am asking you to pray your way through the book and then teach it to someone else. You can watch a brief video about it on our YouTube channel and then order your copy of The Need of Our Nation.

Here are a few suggestions for using this revival resource:

  • Look up all of the Scriptures that are referenced throughout the book and mark them in your Bible. There are a host of cross references given for further study. We hope this little book will encourage many to dig further into God’s Book!
  • Divide your study following the main breaks in the book. Don’t rush through the material. Each of the main passages of Scripture studied may be used as a template for a time of prayer. The material is broken into six parts: Shaking Foundations, What Can We Do?, A Patriot’s Prayer, Our First Work, Noah and Lot, and It’s Your Turn. Some of these could easily be divided into multiple sessions.
  • Consider obtaining additional copies to give to others. So many people are troubled about the condition and direction of our country. This is something that you can put into the hands of those you want to encourage.

Following a contentious election year and on the verge of the 20th anniversary of 9/11 we are praying God will use this new tool to stir many to seek the Lord on behalf of our country.

The ruins of the Castle of the Servant in Jordan. The historian Josephus wrote that the dynasty of Tobiah built a castle on the east side of the Jordan River, in Ammon. He specifically wrote in the Antiquities of the Jews about the carved "beasts of gigantic size" visible here on the left corner of the structure. The beasts on the right side are not as well-preserved. The structure dates to the centuries after Nehemiah, however it shows the power and prestige of this family of "servants."

The Mountain of the House, also known as the Temple Mount, with the Mount of Olives in the background.
Some of the steps in the foreground date from the Second Temple period, and would have been the steps Jesus ascended. Archeologists have uncovered around 300 baptismal pools along the steps leading up to the Temple. They would be convenient for baptizing 3,000 people!
The Hebrew word ruakh can mean either spirit, wind, or breath. The Breath of God, the Spirit of God, and the Wind of God are all understood to be cognates.
