      God promised to Israelites �Your dews (abundant
      blessings) will be like dews in the morning�. It
      cools the scorching heat of men�s passions. It
      moistens the heart and makes it tender and fit
      to receive the seed of word. God�s blessing is
      �life ever more�. That is blessing of all blessings.

      Lord said to Moses �Tell Aaron and his sons, This
      is how you are to bless the Israelites�, say to
      them � The Lord bless you and keep you, the Lord
      make his face shine upon you and be gracious to
      you. The Lord turns his face towards you and give
      peace. So they will put my name on the Israelites
      and I will bless them� (Numbers 6:22-27)

      A blessing was one way of asking for God�s divine
      favor to rest upon others. Blessing�s five parts
      conveyed hope that God would (1) bless and keep
      them (favor and protect) (2) make his face shine
      upon them (be pleased) (3) gracious (merciful and
      compassionate) (4) turn His face toward them (give
      His approval) and (5) give peace. When we ask God
      to bless us and others, we are asking God to do
      these five things.

      In Ephesians 3: 15,16, God promises his power,
      love and blessing to the family of God, the church.
      In 3: Eph: 3:16-21 Bible says if we want blessing,
      it is important we stay in contact with other
      believers in the church. Those who isolate themselves
      from church and try to go it alone, cut themselves
      off from God�s power and blessing.

      We wish you a happy New Year 2004
