APRIL 2017 DEVOTION

THE LINEAGE OF JESUS AND WHAT IT MEANS

If you have ever read Mathew 1:1-16 or Luke 3:23-38 you may have often wondered about the two different genealogies listed.  Mathew traces Jesus lineage through Mary.  Luke traces Jesus lineage through Joseph.  Both Mary and Joseph are descendants of King David.  What you may not have known is that names in Hebrew mean something and when you put all the names of Jesus earthly ancestors you get an awesome message of hope.  Watch this short video to get the answers and a blessing.

ANNOUNCING THE NEW ONLINE OILPATCH BIBLE

 
We are glad to be able to host a digital version of the Oil Patch Bible on our website.  Go to the HOMEPAGE and click on Read the Oil Patch Bible.  This will allow you to read and search the scripture as well as read the testimonies in the Bible plus others we couldn't fit.  As of today, October 21, 2013 the Bible is up and running.  In the next few days the testimonies and art will be added as we are still building out this site.  Soon to come will be the Spanish, Chinese and Portuguese versions. 
 
THE OILFIELD CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP OIL PATCH BIBLE MINISTRY
 
Just about every day we take orders for Oil Patch Bibles, tracts, stickers and Making the Trip With God on Route 316 books.   Since January 2005 over 160,000 Oil Patch Bibles in English and Spanish have been printed and distributed.  We are know in the process of printing more Bibles.  In this print run we are adding 4 more testimonies to the Bible.  We are also reprinting the Spanish Oil Patch Bible with updated and expanded testimonies.  Later this year we plan to print a Portuguese language Oil Patch Bible. 

Do you have a story to share? We would love to hear it. Email it to me at the contact us form.

Maybe you would like to light up someone's life with the love of Christ. I urge you to get involved by letting your co-worker know you care about their eternal destination through a gift of a Bible. Jesus said if you are a follower of Christ then you are to let them see the light in you. The Bible says that God's Word is a light unto our paths. There is not an easier way to tell someone you care for them then to share your light with others.

Maybe you would like to be able to tell a story like these or learn what it means to become a Christian. Click here and find out. You will be glad you did.

But my mouth would encourage you; comfort from my lips would bring you relief. (Job 16:5 NIV)

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope. 2 Thessalonians 2:16 NIV

International Language Bibles  

In the summer of 2000 the Oilfield Christian Fellowship began a Bible Ministry to supply oilfield employees with Bibles in the language of the country where they were sent. To date, over 7000 non Oil Patch Bibles have been hand carried to 60 countries, in 30 languages.

If you work in the oil patch or know someone who does and want to take Bibles overseas to those who need them we can help you with almost any language.

We have also supplied tracts and books when and where appropriate. 
 
Check out the Bible Ministry News Section or Bible Ministry FAQs to find out more about the Oil Patch Bibles.
 

If you would like to order Bibles to carry with you on your next business or missionary trip contact Mike Chaffin by  Email

18Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:18-20
