Reading and Teaching by Reverand Edward Otim when he came to pray in the house

1-Mathew 7:24-27

Matthew 7:24-27New King James Version (NKJV)

Build on the Rock

24 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.

26 “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:

27 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.

2-Joshua 24:14-16

The Nazirite

The Lord said to Moses, “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘If a man or woman wants to make a special vow<span class=”crossreference” data-cr=”#cen-NIV-3826A” data-link=”(A)” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top;”>, a vow of dedication<span class=”crossreference” data-cr=”#cen-NIV-3826B” data-link=”(B)” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top;”> to the Lord as a Nazirite,<span class=”crossreference” data-cr=”#cen-NIV-3826C” data-link=”(C)” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top;”> they must abstain from wine<span class=”crossreference” data-cr=”#cen-NIV-3827D” data-link=”(D)” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top;”> and other fermented drink and must not drink vinegar<span class=”crossreference” data-cr=”#cen-NIV-3827E” data-link=”(E)” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top;”> made from wine or other fermented drink. They must not drink grape juice or eat grapes<span class=”crossreference” data-cr=”#cen-NIV-3827F” data-link=”(F)” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top;”> or raisins. As long as they remain under their Nazirite vow, they must not eat anything that comes from the grapevine, not even the seeds or skins.

“‘During the entire period of their Nazirite vow, no razor<span class=”crossreference” data-cr=”#cen-NIV-3829G” data-link=”(G)” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top;”> may be used on their head.<span class=”crossreference” data-cr=”#cen-NIV-3829H” data-link=”(H)” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top;”>They must be holy until the period of their dedication to the Lord is over; they must let their hair grow long.

“‘Throughout the period of their dedication to the Lord, the Nazirite must not go near a dead body.<span class=”crossreference” data-cr=”#cen-NIV-3830I” data-link=”(I)” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top;”> Even if their own father or mother or brother or sister dies, they must not make themselves ceremonially unclean<span class=”crossreference” data-cr=”#cen-NIV-3831J” data-link=”(J)” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top;”>on account of them, because the symbol of their dedication to God is on their head.Throughout the period of their dedication, they are consecrated to the Lord.
