Brethren, Pray for Our Ministry
Reformed Witness Hour meeting minutes from 1995 had an important reminder for us: "Even though some listeners never join us, we think they are important. God is using us to spread His word, and He uses it as He sees fit. We need to be faithful. Asking questions like, "how many people have come into our churches because of the RWH" or "How many responses do you get" is really asking the wrong question."

Thank you for listening to Reformed Witness Hour, please remember us in your prayers that this ministry may reach more people!

Our Greatest Privilege
What is worship? We could define worship this way, as the fellowship of God with His people in Jesus Christ. From Gods point of view, worship is His work of gathering His people together so that they can enjoy His presence and so that He can find delight in them. So, worship is the miracle of God bringing sinners into His holy presence. Is this how we perceive our calling to worship?

Favorite Message from January 2022

Our listeners’ favorite message from January was Joseph's Command Concerning His Bones by Rev. Bruinsma:

Joseph’s life was colorful. The Lord led him through sore trials of his faith...  All the while he was strong in his faith. He refused to be taken in by the temptations and allurements of Egypt.

Yet, the writer to the Hebrews does not call our attention to any of these acts of faith. He focuses our attention on the end of Joseph’s life on earth ... He desires to point us to the fervent hope the patriarchs possessed that the promises of God would indeed come true. This Joseph reveals when he gave his family commandment concerning his bones.

We read in Genesis 50:25, "And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you, and ye shall carry up my bones from hence." Joseph firmly believed that God would, according to His promise, lead his people Israel from the land of Egypt to Canaan. This faith of Joseph was rooted in what God had promised Abraham many years before.

In Genesis 15 God informed Abraham that He would give Canaan to the nation of Israel - but only after they would remain for a long time in a strange land. Abraham did not know what land that strange land was....Joseph now did... the land of Egypt

This promise of God to Abraham was passed down orally to Isaac, and then to Jacob, and then to his sons.… God promised that not only would He deliver the people of Israel from the bondage of Egypt but He would also bring them to Canaan so that they could possess the land. And Joseph believed these promises... He viewed himself as an Israelite to whom God made His promises just as to the rest of his brothers in their generations.

In this, Joseph’s faith was revealed! You know, it was not as if it would matter to Joseph where his bones would end up. Joseph expresses in his command that he did not desire to be numbered among the Egyptians. Neither did he wish to be with the Egyptians in his death. He represented the cause of God in this world. God’s people were his people. He was a pilgrim and stranger in Egypt.
