PROMISE LAND MEN'S MINISTRIES, THE JOURNEY TO THE PROMISE LAND!
About our Ministry
Promise Land Men's Ministries, has answered the call of coming along side men through the journey of living a spirit filled life. We cannot do it alone, and sometimes we feel that we are the only ones that are dealing with issues that most men face. A constant battle of fighting temptations, losing, sinning, asking for forgiveness, just to find yourself doing it again and again. In the process, it is destroying our lives and our families. Our ministry concentrates on helping men find that journey in reaching the Promised Land by using the Israelite's as examples. From leaving Egypt from bondage and slavery, to entering the wilderness knowing who God is but continuing in sin, to battling the Amalekites (Our Flesh!) , to reaching the Promise Land.

THE CHRISTIAN JOURNEY
Fellowship with God in the Promise Land! by Eric Fasci
When we look at the Israelites and their journey we see some notable things. First, they were in Egypt as slaves and in bondage to the Egyptians and Pharaoh. Second, they entered into the wilderness, and because of their sin, they wandered there for 40 years. And third, they entered into the Promised Land, the land that flows with milk and honey. PLMM believes we are in one of these three places during the cycle of our life. First we are in Egypt, as slaves and in bondage like the Israelites but to the world. Second, we wander the wilderness in sin while knowing who God is. And lastly, we entered into the Promised Land, living a Spirit filled life bearing fruit and avoiding the habitual sin that has had control over our lives. A frightening thought though is, in the first two places, you could end up spending your entire life there, and never making it to the Promised Land. Let me explain each of the three places to you for a better understanding on how God has used the Israelites for us to learn from.
Consider Egypt as a representation of the world, and Pharaoh a representation of Satan. When we are born we are born into sin. Growing up without Christ, we become slaves to sin in the world and to the world. Satan keeps us oppressed in our sin. You can consider everyone that does not know of God to be living in Egypt (The World). Day in and day out they are suffering with this huge void in your heart; a spiritual hunger that you cannot satisfy. These people are lost and this is the place where they belong and will live. That is the Satans biggest deception, to be complacent and stay in bondage to sin and not even know it.
16 Who were they that heard and yet were rebellious? Was it not all those who left Egypt under the leadership of Moses? 17 And with whom was he provoked forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom did he swear that they should never enter his rest, but to those who were disobedient? 19 So we see that they were unable to enter because of unbelief.
The Israelites entered in to the wilderness and wandered in circles for 40 years. They knew who God was, they accepted Him and followed Him. They saw all of His miracles but they continued to sin. In fact, that entire generation died before the rest of them could enter into the Promised Land. In some instances they even wanted to go back to Egypt. They complained and grumbled, and sinned against God.
1 Corinthians 10 5:11
“Nevertheless, God was not pleased with most of them; their bodies were scattered in the wilderness. Now these things occurred as examples to keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did. Do not be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written: "The people sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in revelry." We should not commit sexual immorality, as some of them did--and in one day twenty-three thousand of them died. We should not test Christ, as some of them did--and were killed by snakes. And do not grumble, as some of them did--and were killed by the destroying angel. These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the culmination of the ages has come.”
Many of us chose to follow God and were taken out of Egypt (The World) and went on our journey through the wilderness. But, because of our sin we continue to wander in circles, over and over again. We are all sinners, but are referring to the habitual sin, the sin that controls us and overrules us. This sin we battle almost daily and have a hard time giving up. We fight the temptation on our own, we lose, we sin, we enjoy it for a specified time, we feel bad about it, we pray and ask God to forgive us and then we are right back at it again, and again, and again. And we just wander in the wilderness. Sinning like this keeps us from entering the Promised Land.
This is the land that God promised to Abraham and his descendants. We believe that this land also represents His promise to us, that He has a place here on earth that we can live in fellowship with Him. A place or a stage in life that we can live Spirit filled lives, loving one another, bearing fruit and giving witness to what He promised; His Son, Jesus Christ. Our mission in this ministry is for men that are living in the “Promise Land”, to help other men get out of Egypt, by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The second part of the ministry, is reaching men living in the wilderness, by sharing with them and praying for them as it says in James 5:16.
Promise Land Men’s Ministries has several resources to help men through this journey. All of these resources are free. We also provide one on one coaching. We provide guest speakers for men’s groups, men’s breakfast, men’s retreats, and men’s conferences all over the country. These services are also free, but ask that the travel and accommodations are covered by the church sponsoring the event. Donations are always welcome to help with producing the resources provided by PLMM. This is just a brief description of who we are as a ministry and what we do.

WINDS OF CHANGE AND THE CHANGELESS GOD
Author: A. W. Tozer
A. W. Tozer: Winds of Change and the Changeless God
The contemporary world is a result of radical changes down the generations amounting to revolution: the scientific revolution, the industrial revolution, the communications revolution, the philosophical revolution and the social revolution. Are we going to accept the belief that the Bible must be interpreted anew in the light of these developments? Are we going to allow ourselves to accept the doctrine that the prophets and apostles were mistaken about God? Are we going to allow society to tell us that the Bible is outmoded and largely irrelevant and must therefore be reassessed in the light of modern advancements? Has God changed? Are we going to accept it? Is there a change in the purpose of God? Have the changes in human society startled or shocked God? Must we, in order to remain intellectually respectable and have good standing with these who doubt the Word, humbly say, "Well, I do not believe in miracles"? Or have we got enough of our Protestant protest and courage to stand up and say, "I believe in miracles whenever God Almighty wants to perform them. I believe that whenever God wants to do anything that is out of the ordinary and contrary to or at least above the common processes of nature, He is able to do it. I believe the miracles of Jesus Christ were real miracles. I believe the miracles of the Old Testament were real miracles." Are we going to allow ourselves to be brainwashed along with all the rest? Or are we going to dare to stand and protest and be known over the country as being Protestant indeed? We would be people who refuse to adjust but who make the world adjust to us. When you adjust, you are dead. The same is true if a church adjusts to these ideas. If you adjust, you are done. But if you dare to stand, the world will adjust to you. I can promise you that. Not all will adjust to you, but at least some will.
