BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2020

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

Last Sunday in heat rising well above 100 degrees, over 12,000 Christians gathered on the steps of the California Capitol building in Sacramento to pray and worship together. The event was organized by Sean Feucht, a California-based worship leader who has been leading open-air worship events across the nation since July, to inspire hope in the midst of the pandemic, and to encourage the Church to be strong in the midst of government shutdowns. Governor Newsom had forbade churches from worshipping over the summer, inspiring Feucht to begin these “Let Us Worship” events.

Last Sunday’s 2-hour event, took place directly in front of the Capitol building. A team of worshippers led the crowd in several worship songs. Speakers led everyone in prayer for California and for a nationwide spiritual awakening. At one point during the event, Feucht led a prayer for those who wanted to give or re-dedicate their lives to Christ. Several in the crowd raised their hands to join the prayer.

The events have attracted criticism from the media in light of the current COVID-19 crisis. But Feucht said during the event, that not a single case of COVID has ever been traced back to any of their gatherings throughout 20 cities. Video was captured of the 12,000-strong crowd shouting in praise and celebration to God Almighty. India Ruckle, a 20 year old, said she attended the event because she wanted to feel normal again and to find hope and believe that there were other people longing for community and worship.“I feel like these events are important because they spread the Word and good news that there is hope in Jesus,” Ruckle said.

It is important to note that salvations, miracles, and baptisms have been a regular feature at these worship gatherings. For this, we give God praise and glory. The kingdom of God is being expanded more and more. Feucht intends to continue hosting these events in the present distress. Let us remember to pray for these gatherings, as opposition can arise sometimes, like in the case of one that was held in Seattle. Feucht said that there was great resistance from ANTIFA members, counter-protesters, and others who wanted to disrupt the effort. May God continue to prosper these kingdom efforts of Sean Feucht in Jesus Amen!

In response to the ongoing COVID pandemic, hundreds of Christians recently gathered in a field in Ashland, Ohio as ministry leaders and elected officials called the people to prayer and repentance. During the event, Ashland Mayor Matt Miller dedicated the city to Jesus Christ, and County Commissioner Emmitt Justice asked God to forgive the nation for its rebellion against Him. Part of his prayer was as follows, “As I stand before you tonight, in the bright light of His Son, to the extent I am able, I give this city of Ashland to the Lord Jesus Christ,” Miller proclaimed. “May this be a land where He rules supreme. May this be a land where His love is genuinely felt by believers and non-believers alike.”

 According to Frontlines Ohio, 25 churches associated with the Ashland County Ministerial Association participated in the “Call to Sacred Assembly” at Freer Field. It was noted that people were looking to politicians for answers in the present COVID environment, when they should be looking to the Lord. “We’d been talking about, ‘What is the proper response to the crisis that we’re in?’” John Bouquet, pastor of Bethel Baptist Church in Savannah, told the Times Gazette. “And we’ve sure heard plenty of political and medical responses, but we felt like we needed a spiritual response.” He explained that the organizers looked to the Book of Joel as their pattern for the gathering.

The Bible speaks in Joel 1:13-14 of a solemn (sacred) assembly. This is a public calling for repentance from our sins and consecration unto God. This is exactly what was done in Ashland. The various speakers spoke on issues surrounding the family, the community and government, pointing to Scripture as the guide. State Representative, Darrell Kick, told those gathered that there is a group of lawmakers who meet for Bible study before a vote. He said that he was not aware of another district where the mayor committed the city to Jesus Christ and a county commissioner asked forgiveness for the sins of the county. Pastor Bouquet said that the Ministerial Association also plans to organize a “Prayer Force,” in which pastors will visit various churches on weekdays throughout September to pray for revival in the county.

What happened in Ashland is exactly the kind of response that God is looking for not only in that county, but throughout the entire nation. We need to humble ourselves before God and cry out in true repentance. God said if we do that He would hear from heaven and forgive our sins

and heal our land. Let us pray earnestly that this would become our national response in this present crisis. Amen!

San Luis Obispo County, located in central California, has now been declared a sanctuary county for churches struggling to cope with state restrictions on worship gatherings. This was recently confirmed by the County’s District Attorney, Dan Dow.  He said that he will not be prosecuting churches for holding worship services or for singing in church, which was deemed unlawful by an order from California Governor, Gavin Newsom. In many counties, pastors have had to decide between revolting and abiding by the order.  Gov. Newsom’s order to ban or limit church gatherings has led to lawsuits from various churches.

Dan Dow said in a video which was shared via Twitter, “I declare San Luis Obispo County a sanctuary county for singing and praising in our houses of worship. Inherent with my responsibility to enforce the law is the discretion I have … to pursue only those charges that are warranted and are in the interest of justice.”

More than 30 counties in California are not allowed to gather for church services, according to Newsom’s order that places even greater restrictions on counties included in the state’s COVID-19 watch list. Gatherings of 10 people or more in households in those counties are also banned, essentially prohibiting some home Bible study gatherings. Whether a church can legally gather or not, singing during worship is disallowed under Gov. Newsom’s order. 

Dow said he stands by the speech, reaffirming his stance on Newsom’s gathering ban. “Now more than ever in 2020, we need more people attending their houses of worship and seeking help from the Almighty for an answer to the coronavirus,” he said. “In that spirit, I’m calling on people of faith in our county and across our state, across our country and across the world, to pray for peace [and] healing.” Dow also acknowledged the thousands of prisoners that have been freed in California due to the coronavirus. He stressed how unfair it would be if he were to prosecute a person for attending a religious service.

We thank God for men like District Attorney Dan Dow, who are prepared to take a stand on the side of Almighty God. But God help us when in our nation a district attorney is forced to declare his county as a sanctuary for church worship gatherings. After all, we are the only nation that proclaims boldly on our currency “In God we trust”. But our actions surely indicate differently. May God help us as a nation to give Him His rightful place indeed. Amen!

SCHEDULE FOR THE NEXT TWO WEEKS

The Governor has ordered all churches closed for the next two weeks due to the spread of the COVID-19 in the territory. The church services will be streamed live on YouTube and Face book. The office will be open to drop of tithes and offerings.

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, AUGUST 09, 2020

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

A recent American Bible Society report shows that scripture engagement has fallen during the coronavirus pandemic. According to the 10th annual State of the Bible Report, scripture engagement is directly tied to in-person church participation.

According to Robert Briggs, American Bible Society president and CEO,”Faith communities have demonstrated incredible resilience, innovation and empathy through the pandemic. But this survey reveals that a big opportunity still remains for christian organizations to make an impact on scripture engagement.” Briggs further pointed out that despite the fact that nearly every individual in the United States of America have access to the Bible, it is very clear that engagement with the Bible has decreased. That has been a consistent trend over the past few years, and the trend has accelerated since January 2020 throughout the pandemic. The church must therefore transition from survival mode back into discipleship mode, and surely that is going to take even greater innovation.

A 2019 report found that approximately 35 percent of American adults said they never used the Bible outside of a church service. In January, that number remained about the same, but by June 2020, that same number declined to 31 percent. Respondents said that they found it difficult to maintain a study of the Bible during the pandemic as stay-at-home orders and other restrictions closed churches across the nation. Americans who said they use the Bible daily fell to just one in 10. This is the lowest number on record during a decade of the State of the Bible report. Among other findings, the report found that About 172 million adults are “Bible curious.” In June 2020, more Americans said they were exploring the Bible for the first time than they did in January 2020. Also, Americans who have been personally impacted by the coronavirus are more likely to read the Bible now.

This study supports the fact that the church plays a very vital role in benefitting people’s wellbeing as a whole and their engagement with Scripture.  In order to increase scripture engagement, we must increase relational connections with one another through the church.

The pandemic, along with this survey, have shown that when relational church engagement goes up, so does scripture engagement, but when it goes down, scripture engagement drops. In other words, it is probably the relationships people have with one another through the church that really help to make the difference. May God help us to become more scripturally conscious.

A recent article in the Christian Post by Rev. Mark Cree, stressed the importance of corporate public worship even during a pandemic.He calls attention to the habitual practice of Jesus in going to the temple, “And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day…” (Luke 4:16). It is difficult to diminish the critical importance of attending corporate public worship when we understand that even Jesus Christ Himself made it a habit. Regular church attendance is something that should characterize the life of everyone who identifies as a follower of Christ. In one of the great exhortations of Scripture, we as Christians are told not to engage in “forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” (Heb. 10:25).

A recent report from Barna Research states that “One-third of all practicing Christians haven’t been watching either their church online or another church’s streaming worship services since the state lockdowns…” The report said this trend highlights the importance of churches continuing to reach out and disciple the next generation, especially those who are seemingly falling away during the pandemic.

This Barna report comes at the same time a particular megachurch pastor, who has a high national profile, just announced that his church is suspending in-person services until 2021. The pastor said the reason was that the leadership could not guarantee the safety of the congregants. But, according to Rev. Mark Cree, one can’t help wondering which safety this pastor was speaking about, the people’s physical or spiritual health? It appears that he was speaking about being unable to protect them from COVID-19. “But is the spiritual somehow less vital than the physical?” asked Rev. Cree. He made reference to the one hundred and thirty-five cases of persecution that occurred in the first half of 2020 against Christians in India. Some were lynched, some experienced community ostracization and even sexual assault according to one report. Do we think that their church leadership could guarantee their safety when attending church?”  

We are living in a time when we are experiencing the birth pangs of the end time. Those birth pangs increase with intensity each passing day. Certain signs of the times indicate that the return of Jesus Christ is very

near. Isn’t that what the Scripture is telling us in Hebrews 10:25 which we referred to earlier? Since our redemption is drawing near, isn’t this the time when we should be following our Lord’s example by giving ourselves all the more to the place of worship and prayer? May we commit ourselves to doing so.

Singing in church services during the coronavirus pandemic is prohibited in California. But a group of church leaders filed a federal lawsuit on Wednesday July 15, claiming that rule violates their constitutional rights. The northern California churches claim that Governor Gavin Newsom’s latest order infringes on their right to worship freely. The church groups are based in Mendocino and Butte counties, two counties that have not been placed on the state-wide monitoring list because their positivity rate has not grown rapidly. On July 1, state health officials restricted singing and chanting during indoor church services. By July 13, Governor Newsom announced a state-wide health order to restrict indoor restaurants, hair salons, gyms and church gatherings.

The evangelical Christian churches who filed the lawsuit include the Calvary Chapel of Ukiah, the Calvary Chapel of Fort Bragg and the River of Life Church in Oroville. In their complaint, filed in the Eastern District of California, the church leaders stated that they are being singled out with a prohibition on singing while other groups are allowed to protest in large gatherings.  The churches claim they are “committed to the teachings of the Bible” and they hold weekly worship services that include “singing, prayer, recitation of scripture, and a sermon preached by the pastor.” They claim that their First Amendment right to free exercise of religion, freedom of speech and other rights are being violated by what they call the state’s “worship ban.” The church leaders named Governor Newsom, California Public Health Officer, Sonia Angell, and the health officers in Mendocino and Butte counties as defendants.

The church groups are represented by Robert Tyler with Tyler & Bursch, as well as the American Center for Law & Justice. Previously, Tyler represented a coalition of Southern California church leaders in their fight to force the state of California to reopen churches at the end of May. At that same time, the Department of Justice sent a letter to Governor Newsom telling him that the state should do more to accommodate churches during the pandemic so their religious freedoms would not be violated.

The foregoing facts make it abundantly clear that the devil has targeted the church in this current crisis. But let us as God’s people continue to prophesy to the church of Jesus Christ. Say what Jesus the head of the church said, “….I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” (Matt. 16:18).

The lawyer representing two churches in Chicago fighting the city’s coronavirus measures said he never thought that he would live to see the day when city leaders would threaten to bulldoze a church for allowing its congregation to worship. Matt Staver, the founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, said recently that churches which he represents received letters from the city’s Board of Health that declared them “public nuisances.” This means that legally, it opens up these churches to a lot of problems. Staver read the letter on air that said the department “has the power and duty to cause all nuisances affecting the health of the public to be abated.” Staver said the letter threatened a “summary abatement,” which is the legal expression for the destruction of the facility without any judicial process or further notice.

Staver said the rule of law in the state is clear. He said, if there is a summary abatement for an animal “you just take them down;” and if it is issued for a building you “simply bulldoze it.” He said the addition of the word “summary” is telling. That means the city can do anything it wants to stop the nuisance. Staver said that the order was issued just a day after President Trump declared that churches are essential. He also pointed out that the Justice Department has filed its own brief in Illinois challenging all the statewide orders. He told the Todd Starnes Radio Show that his organization filed a request for an emergency injunction pending appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court.

Rev. Cristian Ionescu, the pastor of one of the churches, Elim Romanian Church, told the Todd Starnes Show earlier that he has been hit with citations already for conducting worship services against the city’s wishes. Metro Praise International’s Pastor Joe Wyrostek told NBC Chicago that his church was also hit with a “summary abatement” if they continue to hold services with more than 10 people. “We are very disappointed with all of this, including not being considered as essential in the beginning, as a church,” Wyrostek said. Staver said one of the Facebook Live videos filmed from outside Pastor Ionecu’s church apparently picked up the sound of nearby gunfire. The city has been criticized for devoting its police force to monitoring churches, while violence overtakes it.

It is absolutely important for us to continue praying for the church of Jesus Christ. Right in our own nation, it is shocking to learn what is happening. Can you imagine that there are threats within our own nation to bulldoze churches? Don’t be surprised because the devil is bitterly against God’s people wherever there are. Let us pray for the Churches in Chicago that God would show up for them mightily.

THE YEAR OF GOD’S GLORY

 

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, JULY 12, 2020

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

China’s communist government is warning elderly Christians that they will lose basic benefits if they do not stop practicing their Christian faith. These benefits include housing, food, clothing and medical care.  Bitter Winter, an online magazine about religious liberty and human rights in China, recently made the report. A woman in her sixties, was receiving a monthly subsidy 250 RMB (about $35) from the government since 2018, the year her husband died. She was told by government authorities that unless she removed images of Jesus from her home, her benefits would be discontinued.  “Because the Communist Party feeds you,” they told the woman, “you must only believe in it, not God.” Shortly thereafter, the pension was canceled because she refused to remove the symbols.

Reggie Littlejohn, founder and president of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, said that it is heartbreaking and outrageous that widows and other elderly persons are being forced to renounce their faith in God in order to receive assistance. For many, they may need these funds to survive. She further emphasized that It is a pathetic act of cowardice to force desperate widows to choose between their survival and their God. The widow, who refused to renounce her faith potentially in the face of abject poverty, is heroic. Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, bring love and compassion to widows, along with a monthly stipend of $25.

Bitter Winter noted that just weeks ago, officials in Fuzhou forced an 80-year-old Christian women to cover up a cross image in her home, again threatening her subsistence allowance. Authorities also have begun an intensive campaign of “return” inspections “to make sure that people don’t resume practicing their faith. In one case, government bureaucrats threatened a believer in a nursing home, who has been paralyzed for eight years. They threatened to drive him out of the residence if he continued his belief in God. 

“The officials said that I am supposed to believe in the Communist Party since it feeds me, or else all my social benefits would be canceled,” he said. “I won’t give up my faith no matter how the government pursues me. If it cancels my benefits, I will meet God earlier.”

Let us remember to pray specially for our elderly brethren in China. It is not easy for them, but God is able to give them the necessary grace to sustain them. He said, “And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.” (Isa. 46:40). Amen!

THE YEAR OF GOD’S GLORY

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.
