Proclaim God's Word 2017

Following an example in Cuba where God did miraculous things in response to the Bible being read out loud from Genesis through Revelation, we did the same in 2013 and 2014, and 2016

We are planning to do it again Thursday, April 13 and Friday, April 14 before Easter.

In two days, reading one hour each, 92 people who love God's Word will read the complete Bible aloud

INSTRUCTIONS:

         Choose the time, and location that is best for you. You may bring someone with and choose your favorite version of the Bible to read.

         Most people said the time was just about right. If you finish before the hour, please wait for the next person to come.

A sign-up page is ready to access with the scripture readings and the location and times. Just sign in and choose. Only your name and any comments you want to leave are seen.

 

Each hour from 7am to 7pm for two days four people will be reading their chosen portion, one at each of the four locations, equaling a total of 24 hours.


This is the article that birthed the idea three years ago.

“Consider a ministry begun recently by the Redeemer Baptist Church in Cespedes, Cuba.  Their church building's tower is the tallest structure in their town.  When I was in their community earlier this week, I learned that twice a year, members go to this tower, open its windows, and read the Bible aloud over the city.  They begin at Genesis and go through Revelation, reading for 24 straight hours in one-hour shifts. When the congregation began this practice, murders were prevalent in Cespedes and Santeria (a Caribbean occult religion) was practiced on the street corners.  Dead bodies were paraded through the streets while Satanic chants were spoken over them. 

 

Since the church has been reading God's word over their town, the murder rate has plummeted.  Santeria has stopped and dead bodies are no longer marched through the streets.  Now other churches in Cuba are joining them, building a network to read Scripture over the entire nation. If Christians in a Communist country can make such a difference by speaking and living Scripture, what can we do to influence our so-called "Christian" nation? 

 

God says that his word "will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it"(Is. 55:11)  His word also states, "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord." (Psalm 33:12)

 

  How will you help your nation be "blessed" today?

Some additional background:

 

Although The Redeemer Baptist is only a small church of 150-250 people, it has outreach and training for other pastors throughout Cuba. It supports about 30 home churches in addition to the central church.

 

On the  3rd story (the tower) a mural of the whole world covers one wall where Pastor Carlos Alamino and others pray with a true Kingdom vision not only for their cities and country but for the world.

 

In the second year of reading the scripture aloud, they also scheduled people to pray during that time

 

There was no dramatic show-down between the occult and the Christians.

The Santeria just disappeared. 

Additional Information:

Since these are public spaces, we put up a sign at each location identifying the readers as part of a concerted community effort.

When you sign up, you are asked for your email and phone number. These are not made public or used for any other purpose than this Bible reading.

We have no agenda except to speak the Word of God and watch expectantly for whatever our mighty God chooses to accomplish among us.
