"The way ancient Israel notified itself for announcements and events was not through
media, messages published on paper, broadcasts on television, internet or radio, but
through sounds, specifically the blowing of trumpets. As Israel was being organized
into a new nation, God told Moses to set up a messaging system of different trumpet
blasts. This is an example of using the technology of the day to make life functional. The
leaders of Israel would be able to gather the people, warn them of an attack, or give
instructions through this signaling system. Sounds were very important. This makes me
think on what sounds define our culture, and it strikes me that we are very loud. There
are so many technological instruments signaling for our attention, and so often it is the
communication that is the most important that is the easiest to ignore. Today, let’s turn
the computer off, put our phones on silent, and read the Scriptures.We are a family-run international ministry with television, print and online programs designed to guide you through the Bible in one year.
From social issues and apologetics to theology, history and science, our mission is to educate, edify and encourage the believer to actively engage with God’s Word in all ways."
