Intro – Here is Bill Shade with today’s “Moment from God’s Word”.
In this age of technology we are used to getting printed material at the push of a button, but it was not always so. For centuries the world relied on Scribes to do the tenuous task of copying documents one letter at a time.
So, imagine a machine that for the first time could print as many copies of a document as the printer wanted, and do it accurately and with ease. That is exactly what the Gutenberg Printing Press brought to medieval Europe just at a time when Luther was translating the Bible into German and Wycliffe and Tyndale where doing the same in English.
The Providential timing of it all was so perfect that it doesn’t surprise me that the new Bible Museum in Washington will have an exact replica of the Gutenberg Printing Press, the first press to use moveable type, capable of printing hundreds of copies of the Bible just at the time it was most needed.
Funny thing about God, He is always right on time. And he has a time for you. He says, Now is the accepted time, Today is the day of salvation. So right now, place your eternal destiny in His loving hands and believe His promise, whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved.
