Signs on the doorpost and gates

Deu 11:18 Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.
Deu 11:19 And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
Deu 11:20 And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates:
Deu 11:21 That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.

A mezuzah (from the Hebrew for "doorpost") is a small parchment inscribed with short scripture passages in Hebrew. The parchment is rolled up, placed in a decorative case, and attached to the doorpost of Jewish homes.

We do not write in Hebrew, but we can place scriptures on our walls, our door posts, our fences. I have seen farm fences with a Scripture verse. My store window has pictures with scripture verses. We are to get the word out, for the nation is fast becoming antichrist in spirit. Be faithful now and even use a bumper sticker, but watch your driving, for you carry a message of life, not to offend but to save.

About twenty years ago a saxophone player named Elmo gave me a bumper sticker. I have put it on my car bumper. It says Jesus is coming soon are you ready? Elmo was always ready to hand out gospel tracts. When he was in occupied Germany following world war two, he handed out tracts to the Germans and it started a revival. Elmo loved to play the old hymns. We would gather together and play them each Friday evening at a little Charismatic church. Elmo put all his heart into his music and into his witnessing. He was a good example to me. Pass on the good word to the next generation. Jesus loves us.
