Dear praying friends and supporters of ‘Take Heed’, Following on from my letter in June the second half of 2015 included a ‘landmark’ date where ‘Take Heed’ Ministries was concerned. It was back on 1 st September 1990 that I launched the ministry so on 1 st September 2015 the ministry marked its 25th anniversary. A short article was posted to the ministry web site and I made reference to ‘biblical mathematics’. In that short article I wrote –
TWENTY-FIVE is evidently the number for the FORGIVENESS of sins… The number TWENTYFIVE is connected with a PARDON for Jehoiachin, King of Judah. Read Jeremiah 52:31-32. Jeremiah states that Jehoiachin’s prison garments were changed and that he did eat bread before him all the days of his life (v 33). Here is a picture of a pardoned sinner. This happened on the TWENTY-FIFTH day of the month. What a beautiful picture of Christ who forgives our sins, changes our garments and feeds us on the bread of life all of our days… How fitting that on this anniversary the emphasis when considering ‘25’ should be on the gracious saving work of the Lord Jesus Christ and not on any “reasonable service” (Romans 12:1).
