Tefillin Or Phylacteries, What Will You Wear?
Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
Tefillin or phylacteries are small black leather boxes that contain scrolls with verses of the Old Testament. Observant believers wear them as a sign of duty to observe early morning prayer. Deuteronomy 6: 4-5 is an example of what is on the scrolls, a reminder of the covenants, the promises of God. Christian have not found the use of such amulets as necessary as we have the entire works of Christ in our hearts, but is that reminder enough, or do we need tefillin or phylactery?
Yahweh-Bore, The LORD Creator—Genesis 1:1. What double-jointed and obtuse terms could you use to describe the creation of the earth! Adrian Rogers says, It always tickles me when I read about how scientists are trying to discover the mystery of the creation of the universe. They scratch their heads and say, "We've got to go back to the laboratory now, a lot of things we thought we knew we didn't know." God just spoke, and it was so, and we give God the thanks. For the evidence of Your Grace and Mercy, we, in a spirit of oneness, we offer praise. We declare and decree blessings upon those bear remembrance of the Grace and Mercy of the Almighty in their hearts so that; the testimony of the righteousness will prevail against every force that comes against us. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
