We saw the need for an outdoor ministry while at the boat ramps and out hunting. People were hungry for something more than just what they were fishing and hunting, and I for one had been feeling like I needed to be doing more than just hunting while I was out there!
The name Blind Faith came to me while driving down the road. I was reminded of the story of Paul on the road to Damascus, how he had to be blinded to actually see who Christ was. I knew that would be the name of our outdoor ministry!
In the same way that our predators are blinded by how we deceive them in order to harvest them is the same way Satan deceives us in order to try to harvest us.
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” - 1 Peter 5:8 (KJV)
When you are in the blind, you have put out all the best decoys, the best camo, the best calls, all in order to deceive and kill your prey. That's the same thing Satan does to us with all the distractions he puts in front of us.
It might be hard for people to see who God is, but it's obvious to see that everything on this Earth has a natural predator. What would make us any different?
The hard part of our ministry is that you might not ever see the result or the impact you've made in someone's life, but it's not our results that were looking for. It's God's result.
Come to our 4th Annual fishers of Men Fishing Tournament!
This will be the fourth annual tournament to raise money for Blind Faith Outdoors to continue our Real Hero Hunt retreats!
Do you know about our Blind Faith Discipleship Team? This is a group that is making the commitment to put God first in everything. And we have the support and prayers of each other as well! Not to mention we have a good time.
"15 For this reason He is the Mediator and Negotiator of a new covenant [that is, an entirely new agreement uniting God and man], so that those who have been called [by God] may receive [the fulfillment of] the promised eternal inheritance, since a death has taken place [as the payment] which redeems them from the sins committed under the obsolete first covenant. 16 For where there is a will and [a]testament involved, the death of the one who made it must be established, 17 for a will and testament takes effect [only] at death, since it is never in force as long as the one who made it is alive.' - Hebrews 9 amplified
"6 Behold, [in the restored Jerusalem] I will bring to it health and healing, and I will heal them; and I will reveal to them an abundance of peace (prosperity, security, stability) and truth. 7 I will restore the fortunes of Judah and the fortunes of Israel and will rebuild them as they were at first. 8 I will cleanse them from all their wickedness (guilt) by which they have sinned against Me, and I will pardon (forgive) all their sins by which they rebelled against Me." - Jeremiah 33 (KJV)
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16 (KJV)
"He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him." - John 3:36 (KJV)
What does Christ's death mean to you?
How much of the inheritance have you claimed?
