About Wongel Advocate

Hello Visitor!

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog, I hope you find it helpful.  Wongel is the Amharic word for Gospel, the Good News of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ.

The purpose of this blog is my way to save and share my personal bible study notes, hoping that whoever finds them can be encouraged to delve into God's Word on a regular basis and be blessed thereof.  A Christian must always spend time with the LORD in prayer, meditation and study.
Blessed is the one whose delight is in the law of the LORD, 
and who meditates on his law day and night. (Psalm 1:2)
I normally take some short phrases as notes on my notebook when I have a personal devotion and study.  But when I am away from my home desk, I end up scribbling on the margins of my bible or a few blank pieces of paper I carry - I end up losing most of the scribbles.  Since I am now mostly online and connected either using a PC at home or using my smartphone, saving my notes online seems the best option.  This way, I can save short notes to this blog, and expand on the notes when I have time.

In Deuteronomy 17:18-20, we find a command for the kings of Israel to abide by - it is written thus concerning the king's devotion to the Word of God:
When he takes the throne of his kingdom, he is to write for himself on a scroll a copy of this law ... It is to be with him, and he is to read it all the days of his life so that he may learn to revere the LORD his God and follow carefully all the words of this law and these decrees and not consider himself better than his fellow Israelites and turn from the law to the right or to the left.
In countries where freedom of worship and assembly is guaranteed by law, we have bibles in abundance (my be several in every Christian home) - so there is no need to make any personal copies as was necessary for the kings of Israel to do.  But God's command for the king to read the Scriptures all the days of his live so that he may learn to revere the LORD his God applies to us Christians now and always. After all, a Christian is a follower of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, a person who has given himself wholly to his redeemer. 

A Christian must live a life filled with hope based on faith, a constant communion and fellowship with the LORD, guided by the Holy Spirit.  A Christian's daily bread is the Word of God, as it is written "man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God" (Deut 8:3, Mat 4:4)

I hope the notes you find here encourage you to commit to a life of daily fellowship and communion with the LORD through a study of His Word!  I pray that you heed the the command of our Lord Jesus Christ who said: "brothers are those who hear God’s word and put it into practice: "my brothers are those who hear God’s word and put it into practice." (Luke 8:21)

Thanks and God bless you!
