Websites Worth Visiting

The following websites have information that I consider worth knowing for reasons that appear on those pages. My summaries below will provide some idea of what the website covers.

General

Persecution

Persecution and oppression of Christians in over 60 countries around the world has increased as evangelical Christians have begun following Jesus' Great Commandment. The fear and insecurity of dictatorial and oppressive governments, as well as religious groups that seek to control through fear and intimidation, has grown as the numbers of Christians has grown, especially in house churches. The following websites provide information about that persecution and oppression. Those living under such conditions repeatedly ask for our prayers.
If you'd like to participate in praying for our persecuted and oppressed brothers and sisters, I subscribe to World Watch Monitor News, a publication of World Watch Monitor, the news service of Open Doors (a ministry created by Brother Andrew many years ago), and I would love to send reports to you. Just open my Contact page and let me know you'd like to join us in that ministry.

Line 1

*YHWH or YHVH is the English representation of the four Hebrew letters that spell the name of the God of the Bible, the one true, living God worshipped by Jews and Christians. YHWH was the name by which he identified himself to Moses in Ex. 3:14. According to references that I've read, the exact pronunciation of YHWH's name was lost in antiquity. After much study, I prefer to pronounce the name "Yahu-wah" (the "h" being aspirated as in "hay", emphasis on the last syllable), but the generally accepted pronounciation in common English is "Yah-weh" or "Yah-way". Some translations of the Bible, such as the KJV and NASB, substitute "the LORD" for his name, following a practice begun before Jesus' birth.

YHWH revealed himself in various ways to the children of Israel in the Hebrew Bible, which Christians call the Old Testament. He also revealed himself in and through his son Jesus Christ and acts, among other ways, in and through Christians by the Holy Spirit. Because the word "God" is being used today to designate all kinds of human inventions, although accepted for centuries in English as a name for YHWH, I prefer to use the name that YHWH chose for himself rather than "God" or "the LORD" as I did in early versions of my writings. Please read The Name of the One True, Living God for a fuller discussion.

Remember who He is and whose you are
