I Timothy 2:5-6
For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all people. This has now been witnessed to at the proper time.

Most anyone who believes there is a spiritual realm will realize that we need a mediator when we deal with powerful spirit beings. Most every people group has some understanding that there is a Creator, but they ignore Him in favor of lesser beings that they think will grant them immediate favors. Such people desperately need to meet Jesus Christ, the Only One who alone can act as a mediator between them and their all-powerful Creator.

Pray for Orochi hearts to be bent towards their mediator.

Orochi People

by CL

With approximately 200 million Shaikhs, 121 million Japanese, 54 million Brahmins and 52 million Turks in desperate need of hearing the good news, why would anyone bother with the 1,000 Orochis? Not only are they small in number, but they, make their home on the remote rivers of Tartar Strait in Russia’s far east.

Living in near-total isolation, the Orochi people long ago assumed the world to be full of dangerous spirits. In order to appease these gods, they created an elaborate system of rules and sacrifices. Fire and tigers were considered worthy of worship. In order for them to communicate with the many deities, they sought the assistance of mediators or shamans.

The Orochi people were right to seek a mediator. It is true that by their own merit or works they cannot gain the approval of God. What they did not know, and still have not heard, is that God Himself provided a mediator in Jesus Christ. Instead of consulting shamans, they can go directly to Him and find favor with the One True God.
