BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, JULY 05, 2020

We welcome you to FEA, where we are overcoming through the power of the Word. May God bless you richly today.

At the second Continental Congress during the summer of 1776, Thomas Jefferson of Virginia was assigned the task of drafting The Declaration of Independence. This document is something that we the people of this great nation should all be grateful to God for. It was indeed a very radical document. This was evident in that it reflected a 180-degree change at the very core of societal attitudes in America at that time. The idea that farmers, merchants and lawyers could secede from a kingdom and fight and win a war against the king’s army was phenomenal. It was the end result of the multigenerational movement that was articulated in the declaration.

The two central values of the declaration are the origins of human liberty and the legitimacy of popular government. Jefferson made it abundantly clear that our humanity is a gift from God our creator and that He has endowed us with certain inalienable rights which we should hold dear. These include free speech, free association, freedom of religion, self-defense, privacy, and fairness, just to name a few.

The view that each individual possessed natural rights was not accepted by any government in 1776. All governments had rejected the idea and employed violence to suppress it. To the minds of those in government in the mid-18th century, the king was divine and therefore could do no wrong.  The parliament served not as the people’s representatives but rather to help the king raise revenue. Thomas Jefferson and his colleagues had no difficulty breaking away from this system. Unlike the French, who destroyed their monarchy, the American colonists seceded from theirs; and they did so embracing natural rights. The idea that each human being possesses inherent natural rights by virtue of one’s humanity is not just an academic argument. It has real-life consequences, which Jefferson recognized. This has helped to furnish us with the freedom and quality of life which we enjoy in this nation today.

As we celebrate another milestone in the existence of this great nation of ours, let us give God praise and thanks. There is absolutely

no doubt that He has a purpose for this nation. But in order for that purpose to be realized, we must make Him the Lord of our land. The Word of God says, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord…” (Ps. 33:12). Let us pray earnestly for our nation that God would be given His rightful place as Lord, so that His purpose can come to fruition in the midst of us. Amen!

THE YEAR OF GOD’S GLORY

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, JUNE 28, 2020

We welcome you to FEA, where we are overcoming through the power of the Word. May God bless you richly today.

According to an article in Christian Post, recent protests with emphasis on race relations have employed the same divisive language and discriminatory mindset which the protesters say they are seeking to change. The movement is complicit in the very process it opposes. A divide-and conquer mindset cannot unify and overcome. An entirely different approach is needed. The problem with race is that historically, those in authority have protected their privilege and power by drawing racial lines at convenient points along the road of humanity’s existence. This has enabled the mere concept of race to become a destructive element.

The human solution to this problem is to attempt to force change through outward measures which can and do facilitate improvements. But they cannot get to the root of the problem in order to achieve effective and lasting change, because they assume that changed laws will cultivate moral integrity. Laws work only through the threat of force by a policing and the judicial system which punishes law-breakers. Yet those demanding change use the same power-based guidelines as the system they oppose. And when the collective moral compass is broken, laws mandating equality are easily side-stepped and misapplied. Unquestionably, legal rights are necessary to eradicate injustice and move all citizens toward true equality. But they will never be adequate enough.

Real change begins on the inside of mankind as he repents and enters into a genuine relationship with the true and living God. This is where we experience and learn to express God’s love. Without this love, every effort of ours will still result in division. You cannot be racist toward someone you love. Laws cannot achieve what God does through Christ by writing his law of love upon our hearts.  There is no other way to achieve a world freed from racism. Transformed hearts must guide us in the difficult task of creating a more just, compassionate, and unified world, and only God has the power to transform one’s heart.

Ending racism is a necessary task. But before demanding change, let us encourage one another to allow God to dismantle the strongholds of evil resident within us, and replace them with divine love, mutual respect, and a true and lasting vision of equality. A change on the inside is necessary to assure effective change on the outside. The goal to end racism will forever elude us unless we allow God to be an integral part of the equation for this change.

THE YEAR OF GOD’S GLORY

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, JUNE 21, 2020

We welcome you to FEA, where we are overcoming through the power of the Word. We also extend a special welcome to all the fathers. May God bless you on this Father’s Day.

The statistics are sobering. When the mother is a believer but the father is not, the children are not nearly as inclined to stay involved in the church. But when the father walks with Christ and leads his family that way, the children will be much more rooted in the church as they grow older. The father sets the tone for his children’s walk with God.

Of course, mothers can and should play their part in talking about Christ to their children, using teachable moments throughout the day to bring up spiritual realities. There are also wonderful stories of a mother’s winsome faith opening up the heart of a child to follow, despite an absent or antagonistic father. But those stories tend to be the exception. God designed fathers to be the pacesetters for the faith in their families. It is an awesome privilege and responsibility. Yet many fathers abdicate their role here to the mothers, the churches, or to Christian schools. Sometimes they have no vibrant faith in Christ to pass on. At other times, their faith is real, but they feel incompetent to teach or lead spiritually.

But this is what I suggest to young fathers. Gather your family together, open the Word of God and read, then pray together. You don’t have to be a biblical scholar to do this. And if you need more structure, there are numerous family devotional resources available to you. This is how the seeds of faith are planted and watered in your family.

The reality is that the best of us fathers will make mistakes. But even with our mistakes, God will still use us to point our children to Him. When we say or do something wrong to our children, we should confess it to God and ask for His forgiveness.  But here is where we miss it many times as fathers.  We fail to say to our children, “I am sorry.  I was wrong.  Please forgive me.  I love you.” Many young people especially young men are emotionally starved for words of assurance, affirmation and encouragement from their fathers.

This Father’s Day, if you are a father, take time to give thanks to God for the awesome privilege of being a father, and ask Him for wisdom and empowerment to be the best father you can possibly be. Let God say about you what He said about Abraham,”For I know him that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord, to do justice and judgment….” (Gen. 18:19).

the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD and on his law he meditates day & night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water which yields its fruit in seasons & whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.

THE YEAR OF GOD’S GLORY

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, JUNE 14, 2020

We welcome you to FEA, where we are overcoming through the power of the Word. May God bless you richly today.

In the midst of the current pandemic and its effects, divisions in our nation today seem wider than ever before as a spirit of racism has once again engulfed our nation.  Violence and unrest continue night after night on streets across America.  What should be our immediate response as Christians? We should pray. The Bible reminds us to pray for those who are in governmental authority, because they have been placed there by God (see Romans 13:1).  We are to pray for God’s wisdom to prevail in every decision making process.  We are to pray for those who advise them.  We are to pray that the will of God be done in our nation as it is done in heaven.

The book of Proverbs tells us, “The king’s heart is like a stream of water directed by the Lord; He guides it wherever He pleases” (Prov. 21:1). We could take that word king and replace it with president, governor or anyone else in a position of power. God is in control. When we see problems in our country, we apportion blame to the political leaders for the most part. But when God sees a breakdown in the country, He points His finger at His people. He says “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land” (2 Chron. 7:14). God is saying, “I’m looking for My people to live godly lives and turn from personal sins.” He then promises, “I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.” In light of this truth, we the people of God need to pray.

As we pray, even racism will be addressed by the Lord.  In the words of Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick “America must turn to God” to overcome race-related problems. He pointed out that we have racism in our country, but that it is really an issue of love. He said, “It’s loving God. You cannot love your fellow man, if you don’t love

God — and we have a country where we’ve been working really hard, particularly on the left, to kick God out. We need a culture change to address this racism. You cannot change the culture of a country until you change the character of mankind … And you can’t change that unless you change the heart.”

The human race sprang from one man and that makes us indeed one family. According to Acts 17:26, God “has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings.” God is still on His throne.  Let us pray earnestly for our nation at this time.

THE YEAR OF GOD’S GLORY


BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, June 7, 2020

We welcome you to FEA, where we are overcoming through the power of the Word. May God bless you richly today.

“Wisconsin City refuses to arrest rioters, but hands out hefty fines to churches with more than 50 worshippers.” This was the caption in The Christian Post a few days ago. The article made it absolutely clear that the city of Wisconsin seems to be more concerned about reining in the worship of God in church than reining in criminals who have been looting people’s businesses.

The article went on to speak about the violent riots in Wisconsin’s capital of Madison, where a group of about 150 demonstrators threw rocks at police officers last Saturday night, according to WITI-TV.  As a result of all the stone throwing, vandalism and violence, at least 75 stores were damaged or looted. Despite the endless chaos and property damage, the Madison Police Department made only three arrests. The interim Madison Police Chief was not ashamed to say that his officers stood back during the protests.  But while the police chief didn’t do much to prevent the barrage of looting in the city of Wisconsin, the officials want citizens to know that church services of more than 50 people will absolutely not be tolerated.

According to the city of Madison’s website “Mass Gathering inside a commercial facility is permitted with fifty (50) persons or less. Individuals must maintain physical distancing.” Wisconsin pastors were reportedly warned by health officials from Madison and Dane counties that if they opened their churches and had crowds of more than 50 people at their religious services, they would face a fine of $1,000. The letter sent out to religious leaders allegedly threatened that there could be “government watchers” present at church services. However, hundreds of people protesting and rioting would not warrant any fine whatsoever in Madison. It is indeed amazing to see how many leaders in our society are amassing themselves against the church while they overlook glaring atrocities before their eyes. They are ready to punish the church of Jesus Christ over trivial matters while they ignore rebellion and wickedness. But this should not surprise us. Jesus said, “If ye were of the world, the world would love its own; but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, on account of this the world hates you.” (Jn. 15:19). So, from these words of our Lord, we know what to expect from the world. Let us, therefore, purpose in our hearts to please God no matter what may be the cost. Amen!

According to a recent survey, more than eight in 10 Americans say they believe in God, and a majority of them say they think God is using the coronavirus outbreak to get the attention of mankind. The survey found that a total of 82 percent of Americans confess a belief in God, with most of them (80 percent) saying they believed in God before the pandemic and 2 percent saying their belief in God developed after the pandemic.

According to the survey which was carried out by the University of Chicago Divinity School and the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, among Americans who believe in God, 63 percent agree that God is using the pandemic to tell humanity to change how we are living, while 31 percent agree strongly and another 31 percent say they somewhat agree with the statement.

In addition, 55 percent of those who believe in God say they think that God will protect them from getting infected by the virus. But 9 percent of those who believe in God are of the opinion that God has abandoned humanity. Seventeen percent of Americans say they don’t believe in God. Among all Americans – not just those who believe in God, but also those who do not believe in God, about 52 percent of them believe that God is telling humanity to change the way they are living. Meanwhile, 26 percent of Americans say the coronavirus outbreak has made their sense of religious faith or spirituality stronger, while 1 percent say that their faith is now weaker. Most Americans, a total of 73 percent, say their faith is the same.

It is a fact that with all that is happening presently across the earth regarding COVID-19, God is seeking to get the attention of mankind. There are times when God will use some very drastic measures in His attempt to gain our interest. From the survey, it is very clear that there are those who are positively impacted by what God has permitted. Let us pray that men and women will not only be impacted but that they would submit themselves to God and come to know Him whom to know is life eternal. Amen!

THE YEAR OF GOD’S GLORY

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, May 17, 2020

We welcome you to FEA, where we are overcoming through the power of the Word. May God bless you richly today.

The church of Jesus Christ today around the world is in a period of transition.  This is not an event.  It is a LIFE CHANGER.  The church will never be the same.

For almost 2 months there has been the closure of churches all around the globe leaving us at the blessing and mercy of the virtual setting. Although the church is not the physical structure in which we gather, yet the church is in essence a gathering together of believers in Christ. It is for that reason why the true believers yearn to meet together as we are commanded in the scriptures not to forsake the assembling of yourselves together. Jesus said, where two or three are gathered together in His name, He is in the midst. The corporate prayer and worship that ascend to God creates a path in the realm of the spirit for God to move in our behalf.  It clears the atmosphere, it causes God to rend the heavens and come down, for He dwells in the praises of His people.  Thus, the inability of the church to pray and praise corporately weakens the body of Christ but promotes the devil’s agenda.

This is a time for all believers to examine themselves to see whether they are in the faith.  It is a time for deep heart-searching to see whose agenda is prevailing in their lives, whether it is God’s, the devil’s or their own. With hearts made clean, let the church arise as never before and be the strong and glorious church that the Savior is coming back for.  This is the time for the earth to be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. As the coronavirus pandemic covers the globe, may the power of God sweep across the earth with healings, signs, wonders and mighty deeds.

It is time to transition from a sleeping body to one that is fully awake –awakened to the fact that the night is far spent and the day of the Lord’s return is at hand.  It is time to transition from mere religious activities to the demonstration of the love and power of God.  It is time to transition from silence to a voice that is heard loudly throughout the earth and in every rank of human society, from the nobles, presidents, prime ministers and governors to the unknown, poor, helpless and homeless.  It is time to let the CHURCH be the CHURCH! Amen!

THE YEAR OF GOD’S GLORY

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, May 10, 2020

We welcome you to FEA, where we are overcoming through the power of the Word. May God bless you richly today, but especially our mothers on this Mother’s Day.

Today is Mother’s Day. It is indeed appropriate to have a day set aside as one on which we pay tributes of love and reverence to the mother who brought us into this world, nursed us through childhood and loved us even when we didn’t merit that love. Our mothers are the ones who cheer us in our successes and console us in our difficulties and failures.  Millions of mothers watched their sons and daughters march out into the real world to face the challenges of their own independent lives, praying and hoping for their success through it all.

The one who observes this day with his mother still alive is truly fortunate.  The opportunity still remains for him to speak a word of endearment and appreciation and honor. The observer of this day who has only the memory of a mother can know the richness and beauty and comfort of it by calling back the memory and cherishing it. Let Mother’s Day bring happiness where it can, and loving remembrance of the cherished days of the past.

Today will go down on the pages of history as a Mother’s Day riddled with the sudden loss of young mothers, vibrant mothers, middle-aged mothers, older mothers and grandmothers who were snatched away and often died alone leaving babies, toddlers, and children of all ages, husbands, relatives and friends in deep mourning all around the world. May God comfort and strengthen those families who are grieving today.

Had it not been for the scourge of this pandemic, churches would have been filled to capacity, restaurants crowded, floral shops overwhelmed and family gatherings countless! Nevertheless, we can still do the best we can to honor our mothers today, especially those who are needy, lonely, forgotten and abandoned by their own children.

May God’s blessing be upon every mother in every nation around the globe!  Amen!

“Charm and grace are deceptive and beauty is vain [because it is not lasting], but a woman who reverently and worshipfully fears the Lord, she shall be praised!” (The Amplified Bible, Proverbs 31:30).

  HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

CONDOLENCES

Apostle Edghill and Pastor Emily, along with the entire F.E.A. family, express our deepest condolences to Sis. Justina Joseph on the passing of her husband. May God comfort and strengthen you in this difficult hour.

The Joy of a Mother’s Faith

 “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world- our faith.” 1 John 5:4

The gift of faith has been given to every mother who loves the Lord with all of her heart. Jesus expects you to grow in your faith, to trust in Him, and to depend on Him, to help you overcome the difficulties and challenges you face. Jesus said in Matthew 17:20, “If you have faith as a mustard seed… nothing will be impossible for you.” So let the joy of the Lord spring from your lips, and praise the Lord for His many blessings.

Mothers’ prayers in the Bible:

  • Hagar: Genesis 21:16-19
  • Hannah: 1 Samuel 1:10-11,27-28; 2:1-10
  • Leah: Genesis 29:31-35

We welcome you to FEA, where we are overcoming through the power of the Word. We are happy to have you!

As the death toll from the corona virus rises and the number of confirmed cases escalates, fear and insecurity is gripping the 11 million residents of Wuhan, a city in China’s Hubei province, the epicenter of the outbreak. But according to Lucille Talusan, Asia correspondent for the Christian Broadcasting Network, Christians there have been out on the streets distributing masks and sharing the love of Jesus and the hope which the Gospel brings.

One Chinese pastor living in Wuhan, wrote to the international faith community, urging them to pray. He said that fellow pastors from around the world had been reaching out to them. “It is readily apparent that we are facing a test of our faith,” the pastor wrote. “The situation is so critical, yet we are trusting in the Lord’s promises, that his thoughts toward us are of peace, and not evil (Jer. 29:11), and that He allows for a time of testing, not to destroy us, but to establish us. Therefore, Christians are not only to suffer with the people of this city, but we have a responsibility to pray for those in this city who are fearful, and to bring to them the peace of Christ… Wuhan’s pestilence cannot separate us from the love of Christ; this love is in our Lord Jesus Christ.”

The corona virus, which causes a respiratory infection with mild to severe flu-like symptoms, has spread to at least two dozen countries, including the United States on a much smaller scale. Even as hospitals in the U.S. are gearing up to handle the potential spread of the virus, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that the U.S. is ready to spend $100 million to help China and other affected countries. He added that the U.S. also helped ship to China 17.8 tons of donated supplies.

Persecution watchdog group, International Christian Concern (ICC), noted China’s Christian community’s efforts to provide hope and refuge to those suffering. They noted that encouraging sermons were being broadcasted to many Chinese communities through speakers placed on balconies. There is also a report of one Christian man who rode his bike to a pharmacy where people gathered and played a sermon through a portable speaker. A video circulated on social media showing Christians distributing face masks and Gospel pamphlets to passersby on the streets as a sermon played in the background. Additionally, Christians from other provinces have been offering their homes to host people who face housing discrimination as they flee from Hubei province.

We praise God for the Christian love that is being exhibited by our Christian brethren in China. Hebrews 13:2 says, “Be not forgetful to entertain strangers; for some have entertained angels unawares.” Let us remember to pray for the people of that nation that as a result of the love and kindness of God’s people, many will be won to Jesus Christ. Praise the Lord!

THE YEAR OF GOD’S GLORY

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2020

We welcome you to FEA, where we are overcoming through the power of the Word. We are happy to have you!

Once again, archaeologists digging in Israel discovered artifacts buried for about three millennia. These archaeologists excavating at Tel Abel Beth Maacah, found a room dating back to the ninth century before Christ “that contained broken jars.” During the reign of King Ahab, Abel Beth Maacah was where the kingdoms of Israel, Aram and Phoenicia met. The city is mentioned in 2 Samuel 20 as a “city that is a mother in Israel” and part of “the Lord’s inheritance.”

Some of the jars that were found contained residues that suggested that the room was “an ancient wine cellar.” One of the jars had an inscription which was so faint that it required special equipment to see it. The inscription read “lbnayo,” which means “belongs to Benjamin.” As Biblical Archaeology Review put it, this finding suggests “that Abel Beth Maacah was an Israelite city at the time when Ahab was the Israelite King.”

Obviously, it’s important to be cautious and not over-interpret the data here. The field of biblical archaeology and archaeology in general, is a human endeavor subject to human failings like most other areas of study. Sloppiness, bias, fraud, or simple good-faith errors can lead to flawed interpretation of findings. But unfortunately, what has long passed for caution in archaeology is what would be better identified as a “hermeneutics of suspicion.” In other words, there is often a taken-for-granted assumption by critics, that the Bible cannot be trusted. Because it deals with religion and morality, it must be exaggerating, if not outright lying on its historical claims.

On the other hand, it’s more than a little disturbing that the Bible’s contemporaries always seem to get the benefit of the doubt, especially if their claims contradict the Bible. A classic case is the Exodus. Since no mention of the Exodus exists in Egyptian documents of the same period, many scholars assume that the biblical account did not happen. Though the kind of caution that accompanies findings like the one at Tel Abel Beth Maacah is prudent, such caution is seldom about the quality of the evidence behind the historicity of biblical accounts. Rather, it is more often about a predisposition to treat the Bible like any other religious text. But the Bible has proved itself to be unlike any other book, religious or otherwise.

Because the Bible actually tells the story of God’s presence and actions in the affairs of man in human history, it uncovers and presents the

historical details in ways other religious texts just don’t. This is why we, as God’s people, should always be excited when these historical details are discovered and validated. Let us pray for those who do not know God that these facts will serve to convince them of His existence and His interest in them as human beings. Amen!
