My name is Les Asrouch. It is pronounced … “Ash – row”.
I live in Marion, Ohio with Patricia my wife of 57 years. I have been studying the Bible for over 40 years and have written more than 35 short monographs on several topics in the Bible.
I use Power Point when I teach at Churches and on Television.
The name of my Ministry is Metanoia Ministry. Metanoia is a Greek word, pronounced, “Met-a-no-ia,” which means in the pursuit of knowledge;
Metanoia is a “spiritual rebirth”, a “shift of mind” by applying new truth.
My goal for these series of lectures is to instill within you a desire to dig deeper into God’s word and draw closer to the Lord Jesus the Christ. I can do this by teaching you a better way to read the Bible.
Each word needs to be read and savored, most of us believe that when we open the Bible and read a few verses that we are studying the Word, but most of the time we are only reading. Much of the time, we could not recall what we just read ten minuets before.
Even though you go to Church and listen to the Pastor , and attend Bible study, did you know that Seminaries for the most part don’t know or teach the Gospel?
A good example of this is the Churches teaching that Christ was crucified on Good Friday, this is not true, the actual day was the day of preparation. The scriptures teach that He was crucified on Wednesday around 3:pm and taken off the cross just before 6:pm.
At the present time I teach on TV one day a week, I would like to be able to cover the state of Ohio and maybe areas of Indiana and Kentucky. The TV stations are, WOCB TV-39 Marion, Ohio, WGCT TV-8 Columbus, Ohio, WXCB TV-45 Delaware, Ohio, WOCB-LP TV-48 Kenton, Ohio.
Wednesday nights at many churches have been discontinued, I would like to give the people a reason to come back, and learn more about the price Jesus paid for our sins.
The Sunday morning Bible studies, or Sunday school classes are becoming a thing of the past, but when the people are offered an opportunity to learn what the Bible really has to say about how we should live our lives, we see an upturn in attendance.
I have come to believe that people of all ages are looking for the truth, and the Sunday school material that is being fed them just does not meet their needs.
With all that is going on in the world right now I believe that with a little exposure to the truth of God’s word, we could get a handle on how to live a fulfilled life and be ready for Christ’s return.
Most people understand that to produce a TV program is expensive, and to produce one each week can take a great deal of time effort and money.
Throughout my working career I’ve met countless people and discussed scripture and what a powerful influence it has been in every aspect of a person’s life. Thirty-five years later, I’m still getting phone calls from people who are still using my material and am invited to give presentations at their Churches.
My perspective on the Bible is not unique, it is merely the truth – that most seminary students and Pastors never learn.
The funding I am asking for will provide for a website, my travel and the recording of the TV programs plus an editor for my writings and my blog for this outreach.
I am saddened to say that many of our Churches have become social clubs with programs that do not introduce the Gospel of Jesus the Christ to the people. Several of the Pastors I have met with, tell me that they were never taught the Bible the way I teach, sad as it may be some have told me that they have never read the Old Testament and two retired pastors said they had never read or taught the book of Revelation because they just did not feel they could understand it.
This statement astounds me because of the very first verse in the book of Revelation, says:
Revelation 1:1 KJV
The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
As you can see, Jesus tells us that He is going to reveal the truth to those who are willing to study. The apostle Paul tells us in 2nd Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
In the entire Bible there are only three individuals that hold the office of king, priest, and prophets. The good news is, if you are born again, which means you have asked Jesus Christ into your heart and made Him Lord of your life, you are one!
This means God is inviting you to seek out His truth, Proverbs 25:2 tells us the “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing; but the honor of a king is to search out a matter”.
As a king, priest and prophet you have a responsibility to learn the truth. The Metanoia Ministry is dedicated to helping you and Pastors to do just that.
One last thought, hear me on this:
The leader you follow, will determine the future you create.
