BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, DECEMBER 26, 2021

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

According to the Christian Post, the final 12 of the 17 Christian Aid Ministries (CAM) missionaries, who were kidnapped in Haiti on Oct. 16 executed a daring escape plan a few days ago after they prayed. Over the time of their captivity, it was revealed, God gave various hostages a desire to attempt an escape, but it took them a while to all agree on when or how this should take place. They sought God in prayer over and over again, for direction, CAM spokesman, Weston Showalter, explained in a statement. He further stated that It took time and God’s work, but after much discussion and prayer, they became solidly united and decided God was leading them this way.

Twice when they planned to escape, God gave clear signs that this was not the right time. On both occasions, on the very minute they had discussed, the exact thing took place which they had requested as a sign. Indeed, God was at work, but the time had not yet come. However, the group kept strategizing and praying until they miraculously united and agreed when they would make their great escape from a barricaded house where they were being held. So during the night, as God directed, they prepared, put on their shoes, and packed pouches of water in their clothes for the journey. When they sensed the timing was right, they found a way to open the door that was closed and blocked. They filed silently to the path they had chosen to follow, and quickly left the place they were held, despite the fact that numerous guards were close by. Once they were away from the hostage camp, the missionaries moved toward a mountain feature identified as a landmark and journeyed northwest under starlight, according to CAM.

With God’s help, protection, and leading, they quickly made their way through the night. They walked for as much as ten miles, traveling through woods and thickets, working through thorns and briars. One of the hostages said, ‘Two hours [of the walk] were through fierce brambles. We were in gang territory the whole hike.” The moon provided light for their path. During times when they weren’t sure which way to go, they stopped and prayed, asking God to show them. And He did! The group eventually found someone who helped them make a phone call for help. Later that day, all of them flew on a coast guard flight to Florida. 

We praise God for how He made a way for these brethren to escape. We thank Him for having brought this two-month ordeal of difficulty to an end. As a result, these brethren were able to be reunited with their families over the Christmas holidays, and are now anticipating the closing of 2021 and the ushering in of 2022 with their loved ones. God said, “I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.” (Ps. 91:15).

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, DECEMBER 12, 2021

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

According to Charisma News, despite threats by atheist groups to try and remove the celebration of Christmas in public sectors each year, the true meaning of the season will be on display in at least 36 state capitols this year. For eight years, the American Nativity Scene has provided more than 400 nativity scenes for display at capitols, public buildings and parks. An anonymous donor funds the crèches, and local groups provide a manger and straw, and work with staff at the government venues to obtain permits.

Liberty Counsel launched its 19th annual Friend or Foe Christmas Campaign, designed to educate and, when necessary, litigate to ensure that religious viewpoints are not censored from Christmas and holiday themes. Liberty Counsel monitors cases each year across the country where there is intimidation by officials and groups to remove the celebration of Christmas in public and private sectors. Liberty Counsel also provides a memorandum to offer guidance regarding the public celebration of religious holidays.

Last February, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of a nativity scene displayed annually at the Jackson County Courthouse in Brownstown, Indiana. Liberty Counsel represented Jackson County. The 7th Circuit ruled that the nativity scene is constitutional under the Supreme Court’s recent decision in American Legion v. American Humanist Association, which upheld the Peace Cross in Maryland. The 7th Circuit wrote, “Applying American Legion, we conclude that the County’s Nativity scene is constitutional because it fits within a long national tradition of using the Nativity scene in broader holiday displays to celebrate the origins of Christmas—a public holiday.”

In April, a federal district court judge dismissed the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana case against Fulton County’s constitutional right to display its annual nativity scene on the courthouse lawn in Rochester, Indiana. Liberty Counsel represented Fulton County, and the court also required the ACLU to reimburse Liberty Counsel for court costs.

We thank God for the work that Liberty Counsel is doing defending the cause of God throughout our nation, even at this Christmas time. The nativity scene serves to remind us all of God’s gift of His son, Jesus Christ, to be the Savior of the world. Satan would like to wipe the memory of that from our nation. But we thank God for those who are committed to fighting for His cause. May God’s blessing be upon Liberty Counsel at this Christmas time. Amen!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, DECEMBER 05, 2021

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

The current US administration has removed Nigeria from an annual list of religious freedom violators.  The list released by the State Department examines the status of religious freedom in every country in the world and designates the worst violators as a “Country of Particular Concern,” which means they are guilty of “particularly severe violations of religious freedom.”

“Nigeria was considered a Country of Particular Concern in the State Department reports of 2020 and 2019. However, Nigeria was missing in the State Department’s 2021 report, which was released recently. The annual report is required under a 1998 law. Christian groups and religious liberty watchdogs criticized the exclusion of Nigeria, saying thousands of Christians have been killed as the country’s security forces have refused to protect them.

John Eibner, president of the Christian Solidarity International (CSI), said, “Removing this largely symbolic sign of concern is a brazen denial of reality and indicates that the U.S. intends to pursue its interests in western Africa through an alliance with Nigeria’s security elite, at the expense of Christians and other victims of widespread sectarian violence, especially in the country’s predominantly Christian Middle Belt region.”  Critics noted that the report was released shortly before Secretary of State, Antony Blinken visited Nigeria.

CSI said Boko Haram and Fulani jihadist militias have killed thousands of Christians, including 31 who were slaughtered on September 26. Millions have also been displaced according to CSI.  On November 17, Eibner wrote Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, asserting that Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari is “unable or unwilling to fulfill its most basic responsibility – the provision of security for its citizens against violence.” Further, Eibner noted that Nigerian security forces detained journalist Luka Binniyat after he criticized the government on the issue of religious liberty. Jeff King, president of International Christian Concern, said he is “troubled by Nigeria’s omission as a CPC.”

Let us be mindful to pray for our Christian brethren in Nigeria, that God would be their defense in this difficult hour. Also let us remember to pray for the leaders in our nation that they would have compassion and stand with our persecuted brethren in Nigeria, and not put foreign policy interests above the safety of God’s people. The Bible says, “Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these, my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” (Matt. 25:40). Amen!

THE YEAR OF ADVANCEMENT

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2021

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

As we celebrate Thanksgiving, let us be mindful that if we cannot learn to give thanks in hard times, we will never learn to give thanks. What makes Thanksgiving difficult for you this year? Are you dealing with grief over the loss of a loved one? Challenges in your family or finances? Guilt over the past or fear of the future? In collating gratitude with these difficulties, Jim Denison, in Christian Headlines, suggests four logical options which we can view as a Thanksgiving spectrum.

1: We can choose gratitude as a generic attitude, a feeling we choose to feel. This is a common approach in our secularized culture. However, it is an illogical and impractical choice. Feeling grateful without being grateful to someone in particular is like feeling love without loving someone in particular.

2: We can be grateful to God for the good things in our lives. For example, the psalmist declared, “This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it” (Ps. 118:24). This is obviously a step beyond secularism’s self-reliant denial of the supernatural and is where most Christians end up on the Thanksgiving spectrum.

3: We can “give thanks in all circumstances” (1Thess. 5:18).  This is a step beyond gratitude only for good things, a decision to find reasons for thanks in difficult times as well as good.

4: We can “give thanks for everything to God the Father” (Eph. 5:20). This is the most challenging step of all, a decision to find cause for thanks even for the hard times we experience. It is not easy but it is transformative. If we can learn an attitude of gratitude to God for every moment we experience, we will surely “enter his gates with thanksgiving” ((Ps. 100:4) and experience continually the transformative power of his Spirit in response to our worship. Does this mean that we have to pretend that hard times are not hard? Not at all. To “give thanks for everything to God the Father” means to thank him for the good that we experience and for the ways he will redeem the bad.

With all these facts in mind, it is obvious that God never intended for us to be thankful only at Thanksgiving time, but throughout the entire year.  So let up purpose in our hearts that we will always be thankful to God come what may. It is amazing what a big difference it will make in our lives. Amen!

THE YEAR OF ADVANCEMENT

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2021

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

According to World Net Daily, (WND), Franklin Graham, the chief of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) as well as the Samaritan’s Purse aid ministry, has recently won a fight brought against him by LGBT activists.  As a result, he will now be able to present the Gospel message in Sheffield, England, in May next year. This victory has come after a nearly two-year battle against forces who wanted to shut down his message entirely. According to a report in the BBC, Graham was accused of having “homophobic” views when he announced plans for a series of events in England, during which he was to appear in Sheffield Arena last June.

The announcement follows the resolution of a legal dispute over Franklyn Graham’s appearance, according to the Sheffield city council. After he originally was scheduled to visit, “community groups” involving the pro-LGBT agenda, campaigned against him and signed a letter of protest to council officials. The council, and the operator of its local arena, then backed out of their agreement, prompting the BGEA to open a legal dispute. But now an official for the city has said that, “The parties are content that the dispute has been resolved and are content with the confidential terms agreed.”Bottom of Form He continued, “As part of that settlement, BGEA are entitled to hold their event in the Sheffield Arena and this event has been scheduled for May, 2022.”

The BGEA’s arguments against the city’s cancellation of its agreement pointed out that BGEA filed claims against parties in Sheffield that it believed were responsible for cancelling its legally binding contracts. It explained that there was no evidence that any event involving Graham had ever caused a danger to public safety or incited public disorder. “There is no question that was done under pressure from those with opposing views,” BGEA said.

The Christian Institute said that the case was one of five separate legal actions pursued by the BGEA after Sheffield and other venues in Glasgow, Newcastle, Birmingham and Liverpool arbitrarily canceled the bookings to which they had agreed for Graham’s planned U.K. tour.

We celebrate this victory for the BGEA. We are in the last days, and the devil is launching an all-out offensive. But we thank God for those believers who will not sit idly by and allow him to have his way. Rather, they are prepared to resist him. That is exactly what Evangelist Graham has done. Let us follow his example and remember to pray for him and his association that God would continue to use them for His glory and honor.  

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2021

An article in the Christian Post, written by Gary Wilkerson, Voices Contributor, Why it’s Important to Pray for Your Pastor, reflects that while many Americans are hanging spooky decorations and picking out costumes in preparation of Halloween, October is also Clergy Appreciation Month. It’s a time to not only celebrate church leaders but also to remember the important role they play in our society and local communities, including the significance of their physical and mental health.

Pastors are exposed to the depths of human suffering, unlike any other profession. The paramedic is there following an accident, but the pastor walks alongside the family at the hospital. The funeral home director takes care of the death of a family member, but the pastor provides spiritual support. The doctor takes care of the cancer patient while the pastor prays for them. The teacher educates the student with a disability while the pastor helps support the family. It is the pastor who is expected to be present and supportive through all of life’s challenges and tragedies. They are sharing in all the suffering of their flock. The weight of this burden can be heavy.

Being a pastor is a public position. Criticism is ripe for any sermon, prayer, event and so forth. Pastors are constantly hearing if their sermon was good or not, if an event was worthwhile to attend or poorly managed. Criticism can have tremendous effects on a pastor’s self-esteem and self-worth. For pastors who are self-critical as well, this can add to the burden and uphill battle to maintain a positive outlook.

Gary Wilkerson further wrote that “in recent years, the topic that got the most response on my podcast was around pastors, depression and suicide. Listeners were dissatisfied with the idea that a pastor would be dealing with things like depression. Instead, listeners felt that pastors should be providing answers to life’s problems—not experiencing them. This thinking emerges when we put pastors on a pedestal. We must remember that pastors are human just like the rest of us. While they should be “a step ahead of us” in our spiritual journey in order to lead us along, we can’t demand more of them than that. Pastors experience hardship and emotions just like the rest of us.  

Pastors must learn self-care. Like the old adage says, “Put your own oxygen mask on first before helping someone else,” it is vital that pastors are emotionally, mentally and spiritually healthy in order to do their job well. However, pastors are often put in a position that they must care for everyone else first. While admirable, over the long haul, this approach will only leave them burnt out and empty.

As Christians, we should commit to praying for our pastors and church leaders each day. I implore you to make this a regular practice during the month of October. Our pastors do better when they live healthy, spirit-filled lives. Let’s do all that we can to help and encourage them.

THE YEAR OF ADVANCEMENT

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2021

We give God praise for the fact that we can freely gather in His name. May His praise be glorious in our midst today.

California’s Governor, Gavin Newsom, recently signed into law a bill which is nothing less than a frontal assault on parental rights.  The bill also hurts the very children it claims to protect. AB 1184 is reported by California Family Council to prohibit insurance companies from revealing to the policyholder the ‘sensitive’ services of anyone on that policy, including minor children, even though the policy owner is financially responsible for the services.  These ‘sensitive’ services include abortions, sexual assault treatment, drug abuse and mental health treatment, cross-sex hormones, puberty blockers, and sex-change operations.

 In California now, minors can consent to all of these sensitive treatments, under certain conditions, after the age of 12, except for sex-change surgeries. They can also consent to abortions at any age. This is exactly what this bill entails.  Not only can your 13 year-old child make radical, life-altering decisions, such as having an abortion in California, without your knowledge or consent, but your child can use your family insurance policy to pay for that abortion, and when your insurance statement comes, there will be no explanation of services. In fact, your insurance provider will be prohibited from disclosing to you what your own child has done and what your policy has covered. This is now the law in California.

A minor child in California can now choose to get treated with cross-sex hormones or puberty blockers, drugs which can have disastrous lifelong consequences, without possibly being able to understand the implications of what he or she is doing, and that by law.  You as a parent cannot intervene or do anything about it. Your child doesn’t have to tell you. The doctors don’t have to tell you. And your insurers don’t have to tell you. It is important to note that the passage of this bill is being celebrated by the governor and his colleagues. And we need to be all on guard, because ‘as California goes, so goes the nation.”

 One must ask the question, who gave the government such intrusive, potentially destructive powers? The only one who could have inspired the governor and his colleagues to do such a thing is the Devil himself. God has put children under the care of their parents, not under the care of the government. Our nation is in serious decline and only God can help us. Let us earnestly pray against this evil in California and for our nation as a whole. God still answers prayer!

THE YEAR OF ADVANCEMENT

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, September 26, 2021

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

A high school coach who was fired for praying at the 50-yard-line after football games is now asking the U.S. Supreme Court to get involved and protect not only his religious liberty but also the freedoms of thousands of other teachers in the region. Joe Kennedy, whose case has gained nationwide attention, was not retained as an assistant coach by Bremerton (Wash.) High School following the 2015 season after he prayed, multiple times, in violation of a district policy. Kennedy’s post-game prayers typically involved his kneeling silently at midfield.

Kennedy lost his case at the district court and at the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The US Supreme Court declined to hear his case in 2019, even though four of the justices expressed openness to hearing the case at a later date, after the lower courts better developed the record. Those four justices at the time said that the Ninth Circuit’s reasoning “is troubling and may justify review in the future.” The Ninth Circuit ruled that the prayers violated the U.S. Constitution’s Establishment Clause.

First Liberty Institute, which is representing Kennedy, hopes the high court is ready to hear the case this time. “No American should be forced to choose between their faith and the job they love,” said Kelly Shackelford, chief counsel at First Liberty. “The Ninth Circuit’s opinion threatens the rights of millions of Americans who simply want to be able to exercise their faith freely without fear of losing their job.  We hope the Supreme Court will right this wrong and restore Coach Kennedy to the football field where he belongs.”

The petition to the Supreme Court points out that the Ninth Circuit’s opinion “has far-reaching effects for the hundreds of thousands of teachers in the Ninth Circuit, because the Ninth Circuit’s decision converts practically everything public-school teachers do or say during school hours or after-hours functions into government speech that the school may prohibit, thereby ensuring that teachers in the Ninth Circuit really do shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech and expression at the schoolhouse gate. The petition further points out that it converts the Establishment Clause from a protection against state-imposed religion into a cover for suppressing private religious speech.

Let us remember to pray for the success of Joe Kennedy’s case in the Supreme Court. The Devil is unleashing everything he has in his arsenal against God’s people in these last days. But the Bible makes it abundantly clear, “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” (Rom. 8:37). Amen!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, September 19, 2021

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

A recent survey throughout the United States of America, by Nicholas Zill of the Institute for Family Studies, found that a change is on the horizon with regards to the supposed demise of the nuclear family. The percentage of high school seniors who were raised by both biological parents throughout childhood saw a major increase during the last decade, according to the new study. The report found that 53.1 percent of high school seniors in 2019 were living with both biological parents, an increase from 51.3 percent in 2016 and 49.7 percent in 2012. Just as significant, the report said, the uptick involved multiple racial groups, including whites, blacks and Hispanics. This led Nicholas Zill to conclude that “the tide is turning.”

“It is too early to say for certain but growing numbers of actual and would-be parents seem to be heeding the conventional wisdom that a stable two-parent family helps children flourish educationally, socially, and economically,” Zill wrote. “They have come to accept that loving and being loved by one’s two parents, who are also committed to one another, has benefits for the children and adults involved and for the community in which they live.”

The percentage of black high school seniors living with both birth parents increased from 24.3 percent in 2012 to 29.6 percent in 2019. For Hispanics, it went from 49.7 percent to 49.8 percent, and for whites, from 55.8 percent to 59.1 percent. “The fact that seniors were still living with both birth parents at the culmination of their schooling means that the vast majority grew up with them since birth,” Zill wrote. “Some may have been born to unmarried parents who subsequently got married during the student’s childhood. Some may have experienced parental conflicts or temporary separations, but not the kind of conflict that resulted in permanent splits. Their parents were able to work things out and the marriages endured.” This was not the only encouraging data in the report. The study also found that the proportion of children under 18 living with two parents increased to 70.4 percent in 2020 after falling to 67 percent in 2005.

This most recent data is indeed pointing to a turning tide in relation to the nuclear family. God is always right! He is never wrong! Speaking in relation to the family, God says, “Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table.” (Psalms 128:3). God intends for children to be raised within the context of a family with a father and a mother. That is why Zill was able to observe from the survey that “a growing number of actual and would-be parents seem to be heeding the conventional wisdom that a stable two-parent family helps children flourish educationally, socially, and economically.” Amen!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, September 12, 2021

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

Just last month, in Uganda, the Muslim father of a 20-year-old convert to Christianity, killed him for refusing to recant his faith in Jesus Christ, sources said. Tabiruka Tefiiro, his son, had put his faith in Christ in 2019. At that time his father drove him from their home, and he went to Kampala, where he worked in a hotel. . His mother later spent several months trying to convince him to return home to reconcile with his father, which Tefiiro resisted until he eventually consented to return on Sunday, August 1.

His father was away from home until Saturday, August 14, when he called a family meeting to question his son, Tefiiro, about whether he had come back to Islam. The son replied, “I am mature enough to join any religion that I feel like because I am above 18 years old. I want to confirm that I am saved by the grace of God. I can’t renounce my Christian faith now or in the future.” The father became angry but remained silent as he left the house, the sister said. The following day the father returned with a knife and hoe and started hitting Tefiiro, his son, who managed to escape to a neighbor’s house.

Reports state that the father then pursued his son and forcefully entered the house where he sought refuge. He then removed him back to the homestead, where he tied him up and started beating him with the hoe until his son fell to the ground unconscious. He then hanged him up and proceeded to hang his son with a rope by the neck, sources said. The father, Kasimu Kawona, was subsequently charged, not with murder, but rather with a lesser charge of manslaughter, because he killed his son in anger for leaving Islam to become a Christian.

This assault was the latest of many instances of persecution of Christians in Uganda that Morning Star News has documented. And in light of the current trend, it surely won’t be the last. What happened to Tefiiro totally reflects what Jesus said, “For I have come to turn ‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. A man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.” Let us pray that the stand Tefiiro took will challenged others there in Uganda to take their stand for the Lord regardless of the cost. Amen!
