BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2021

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

“Cancel culture” has now struck the The Coral Ridge Ministries television program, The Coral Ridge Hour – Truths that Transform, which began in 1978. The program was founded by the late influential Presbyterian minister, Dr. D. James Kennedy in 1978.  The organization said that it has been deplatformed by Lifetime TV, to which it paid enormous fees over the years, because of its Christian perspective on issues such as abortion. Lifetime TV recently demanded that the ministry remove all “controversial” content or it could not continue to purchase time for its program “Truths That Transform.”

Frank Wright, CEO of the group, said Lifetime imposed an unacceptable demand on the ministry. They recently required the ministry to remove all programming that addressed abortion and other related matters. Lifetime’s sudden decision to impose severe content restrictions came after nearly three years during which the cable channel aired, without comment, ‘Truths That Transform’ programs addressing abortion and other matters of concern to Christian social conservatives. But it wasn’t a surprise, the ministry’s representative said, since a growing number of private media firms, among whom are Twitter, Facebook, Google, Apple and others” now are “deplatforming and silencing outspoken Christian and conservative voices.

“We will not cave to the cancel culture,” said Frank Wright. “D. James Kennedy Ministries is committed to proclaiming biblical truth and defending freedom in America. We simply cannot water down our message to please Lifetime and be faithful to our mission.” The ministry is now is in the process of finding a new broadcaster. But the process is proving to be expensive and burdensome given the recent decision by some networks to eliminate all religious programming. “This is not just about us,” Frank Wright said. “We are at a critical turning point in our culture. The cancel culture is in high gear and coming after anyone who speaks with courage and candor to the great moral and cultural issues of our day. With God’s help, we will not bow.”

This is a wakeup call to the church of Jesus Christ in our nation. The devil wants to put us to silence because he knows that he has but a short time left. He does not want God’s truth to reach those who are in darkness. Let us join Frank Wright and our brethren at Coal Ridge Ministries and say, “We will not bow!” Jesus said, “But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father who is in heaven.”(Matt. 10:33).

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

The Western Wall in Jerusalem, is a place where people go from miles around to pray for the Jewish people. It has now added 30,000 Coronavirus patients in request for prayer. Many of the names come from online petitions given to The Western Wall Heritage Foundation which runs the wall. The prayer requests are printed daily and placed before the wall. Hundreds of new requests are added every day. But in spite of this, the Western Wall Heritage Foundation is still requesting that people send in more prayer requests. In a statement obtained by CBN news, The Western Wall Heritage Foundation said, “Send us the names of your loved ones and we will make sure to pray for their health…” The Western Wall is situated in the Old City of Jerusalem. It is the most hallowed sight – a place for constant prayer, meditation and inspiration, and It can be a very emotional experience for Jews and Christians. The history that it represents is spine chilling, as reflected in the heartfelt prayers of the Jews who visit there and sometimes weep over the destruction of the Temple, which was the reason for the Gentiles naming it “The Wailing Wall”.

It is part of the western supporting wall of the Temple Mount and is the only remains of the second Temple. The first Temple was built by King Solomon and stood for 410 years until the Babylonians destroyed it. Seventy years later, the second Temple was built under the guidance of Ezra.  It stood for 420 years until Titus and his Roman legions razed it to the ground in 70 AD.  They left the wall up because they thought it held no major significance, since it was an outer wall and not actually a wall that was part of the temple itself.

The wall was later destroyed in an earthquake in the 1500s. However, the Ottoman emperor took the effort to repair it for the sole purpose of it becoming a prayer site for Jewish people. The Emperor’s decree was respected for 400 years or more following his rule. The wall officially became part of Israel again after the Six- Day War in 1967, and has remained in Jerusalem ever since as a place of prayer. No one could have imagined the significant role this wall would eventually play in the lives of so many people.

We praise God for the many people who have come to the realization in this coronavirus environment that prayer works. This is the reason for the 30,000 prayer requests for healing from coronavirus flooding the Western Wall Heritage Foundation. The Word of God makes it abundantly clear, “…And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he has committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.” Let us join the prayer warriors at the Western Wall and believe God for the healing of all those who are requesting prayer for healing from the coronavirus.

Despite the coronavirus outbreak, according to Lifeway Christian Resources, Bible sales have increased across the globe. Lifeway Christian Resources, a leading provider of Christian books and educational materials, noted in a new report that Bible sales have increased significantly. This became evident from between April to June last year. Lifeway CEO Ben Mandrell believes that the increase in Bible sales can be attributed to people’s desire to seek hope and healing during times of great difficulty, such as the pandemic.

Mandrel said, “We believe this is no accident, as people often go to the Bible as a source of hope in times of crisis and uncertainty.” He explained that people draw hope from scripture because in it they see a God who is with us during our suffering. The Bible, as God’s words to us, is a reminder that He doesn’t leave us to walk through difficult times alone.” Since its founding in 1891, Lifeway has been serving Christians and new believers with a variety of resources including Bibles, books, Scripture reference tools, Bible studies, children’s products, Christian music and movies, gifts, and church supplies.

In January 2019, the company had announced that it would close down several retail locations due to a decline in sales and would shift more towards online sales. But after the pandemic began last year LifeWay Christian Resources saw an increase in sales of Bibles amounting to 62 percent in one week as opposed to the previous year. Alabaster Co., a Bible publisher known for its visually artistic individual books of the Bible, also saw an increase in Bible sales of up to 143 percent. Another Christian publisher, Tyndale House Publishers, reported a considerable increase in Bible sales. Jim Jewell, an executive for Tyndale, noted that purchases from the company’s Life Application Study Bibles increased up to 44 percent and 60 percent for Immerse Bibles.

We give God praise and thanks for this significant increase in Bible sales over the past year.  What the devil meant for evil by means of the pandemic, God is using for a good purpose.” The Bible holds the answer to humanity’s past, present and future. It is the wellspring of wisdom and divine instruction. “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,” (2Tim. 3:16). Let us pray that many people will be born again, as they engage the Scriptures during this time.

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, January 31, 2021

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

Each January, Open Doors, an organization committed to serving persecuted Christians worldwide, releases their World Watch List. This list documents the 50 countries where it is most dangerous to be a Christian. It highlights global trends in religious persecution and provides unique insights into the global persecuted church. In many ways, Open Doors 2021 report resembles those of previous years. North Korea is still at the top of the list, followed by Afghanistan. As in previous years, the list is dominated by either communist governments or overwhelmingly Islamic countries. Christian persecution in these countries may take the form of discrimination, restrictions on religious practice, imprisonment, violence, or killings. The persecution may come at the hands of the state or at the hands of private actors with the state looking the other way.

However, the 2021 World Watch List does differ from those in previous years in a very important way. The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the ugliness of Christian persecution in a new way. For example, in India, COVID-19 food relief has been used by some radical Hindu government officials to pressure Indian Christians to renounce their faith. In some regions of India, Christians are last in line to receive aid, including food. As a result, some Christians there are being forced to travel long distances in order to receive help. Some are forced to hide their Christian identity. Similar reports are emerging from other countries around the world, including Myanmar, Nepal, Vietnam, Malaysia, Yemen, and Sudan. 

In some parts of Pakistan, the combination of COVID-19 and anti-Christian discrimination has wiped out Christian-owned businesses. Christians already struggling to make ends meet have found their Muslim neighbors using the corona virus as a pretext to shut them down altogether. In the Kaduna State of Nigeria, Christians who were already facing genocidal violence at the hands of Islamists and Fulani herdsmen are, according to Open Doors, receiving only one-sixth of the rations allocated to Muslim families. In addition to the health and economic pressures, authoritarian governments around the world have used COVID-19 to consolidate power and further restrict religious activities they deem to be a threat to their authority.

Open Doors is right in warning us about how COVID opportunism are threatening religious freedom. This knowledge is important so that we can be on the alert and pray more accurately and effectively. We need to pray earnestly for the persecuted Christians around the world. The Bible says, “Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.” (Heb. 13:3).

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

On Tuesday, Joe Biden was inaugurated as the 46th president of our nation. That same day the Christian Post executive editor, Richard Land, penned a public letter to the new president in behalf of the Evangelicals in America. He assured the president of the prayers of the saints in obedience to the Biblical exhortation in, “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.” (1Tim. 2:1-2).

Richard Land, in his letter assured the president that the vast majority of American Evangelicals will pray for him. He stated, “We covenant with you to pray that our Father God will grant you godly wisdom and the mind of our Lord Jesus Christ in all your decision-making. We pray with the faith and confidence that ‘the king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: he turneth it withersoever he will.” (Pro. 21:1).  We will also importune our Heavenly Father to bless you with safety, health, and all spiritual blessings.” He said that on matters which “involve moral and ethical values,” evangelicals will be praying for him “to apply timeless biblical principles and values” as he makes “policy decisions that will impact the families in America and the world.”

Richard Land further assured the president that “as soon as prestige and the “bully-pulpit” of the presidency are put behind the defense of First Amendment free speech, freedom of conscience and religion, human rights, and voice support for persecuted groups like the Uyghurs around the world, he would have the full support of the Evangelical community.

The letter also urged the president to “extend the legal protections of the law to all our citizens pre-born and born” and to reconsider his position on abortion, as Evangelicals are committed to the sanctity of human life, from conception to death. He said, “We will … support you when we can do so without violating our consciences, and we are united in the rejection of violence and in our commitment to peaceful redress of grievance and nonviolent protest.” The editor then concluded his letter. It is our hope that these words on the behalf of the Evangelical Church will serve to help in the shaping of this new administration in some way, so that the purpose of God can be fulfilled in our nation. The Bible says, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” (Ps. 33:12).

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, January 17, 2021

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

According to data recently compiled by the reference website Worldometer, more than 42 million babies were aborted in 2020. This number surpassed the leading causes of death in the entire world for 2020. Worldometer, which observes statistics on various topics, made these findings on abortions available after organizing it through the World Health Organization. On New Year’s Eve, the internet archive tool, The Wayback Machine, captured a snapshot from Worldometer and found that over 46 million babies were aborted in 2020 around the globe.

When we compare the number of abortions to the findings regarding other causes of death worldwide in 2020, we discover that over 13 million people died from communicable diseases. Roughly 8.2 million people passed away from cancer, whereas almost 5.1 million and 2.5 million people died due to smoking and alcohol, respectively. Findings from John Hopkins University reported that over 1.8 million people worldwide died from COVID-19 in 2020. Among other findings last year, almost 1.4 million people were killed in road traffic fatalities while nearly 1.1 million people worldwide committed suicide.

According to the Christian Post, when abortions are excluded, we discover that there were nearly 59 million deaths worldwide in 2020. If abortions were considered as a cause of death, the total death toll would significantly increase to more than 100 million. The preceding year, 2019, also had more abortions than any other leading cause of death around the globe. According to The Christian Post, Worldometer reported that there were about 42.4 million babies aborted in 2019.

Not only is abortion the leading cause of death worldwide, but it has also been the leading cause of death in the United States of America in the past few years. Guttmacher Institute, a pro-choice research organization, found that 862,320 babies were aborted in 2017 across our nation. In that same year, the Centers for Disease Control revealed that 647,457 Americans died from heart disease. As of the time of the writing of this article, Worldometer found that over 530,000 abortions had already taken place across the world since 2021 began.

The foregoing facts regarding the murder of the unborn across the world and in our nation, is a grave cause for concern. The Word of God clearly warns against the taking of innocent lives. Matt. 19:18 says, “You shall not murder.” Furthermore, God told Cain, the first murderer, “The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground,” (Gen. 4:10). We can be assured that the blood of these innocent children is crying out to God from the earth, and He is going to give them justice. It is just a matter of time.

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, January 10, 2021

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

On Tuesday the Christian Post carried an article entitled, “Congress Has Officially Gone Gender Crazy”. It was all in reference to last Sunday’s opening of the 117th Congress when the prayer to open this session diverted from all norms. It was offered by former representative of the House, a United Methodist Church Minister, Emanuel Cleaver.  His prayer was offered in “the name of the monotheistic God, Brahma”, of the Hindu religion. He concluded the prayer as follows, “We ask it in the name of the monotheistic God, Brahma, and god known by many names by many different faiths. Amen and Awoman,” The prayer is believed to have elicited considerable mockery across social media.

But what is the real reason for this kind of prayer? It is a move by the radicals in the US Congress to eliminate all gendered language from the floor of the house and from legislation so as to create a more “politically correct” environment. The House of Representatives officially voted on the proposal on Monday. The vote came down along party lines, with all Democrats voting in favor of the package and all Republicans voting against it. Because Democrats have a narrow majority in the House of Representatives, the rules package passed and will remain in effect for the duration of the 117th Congress.  Words referring to gender, such as ‘father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, first cousin, nephew, niece, husband, wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, stepfather, stepmother, stepson, stepdaughter, stepbrother, stepsister, half brother, half sister, grandson, or granddaughter will be removed.”

But the word “Amen” comes means, “So be it.” It is used in Jewish, Christian, and other liturgies, and is found in Hebrew, Greek, Latin, Arabic, English and many other languages. It has nothing to do with gender. Who said being politically correct has anything to do with truth or reality? To the contrary, being politically correct is quite often based on the denial of reality, or, in this case. To view the word “amen” through the terms of gender is to display complete ignorance of a common word.

Responding to these rule changes in the House of Representatives Rev. Franklin Graham has accused top House Democrats of trying to deny God’s authority. Graham made reference to Gen. 2:27, So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” According to Graham, the push to eliminate gender-specific language “is shaking a fist in the Creator’s face, trying to deny His authority. May God help us to cry out to Him for those who are in leadership in this nation, before it is too late. Amen!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, January 3, 2021

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

It is with gladdened hearts and high expectations that we welcome this New Year 2021. However, we need to pause and consider a prediction which was recently given by Pastor Andrew Brunson. He served as a missionary in Turkey for over 20 years and has recently predicted that Christians in America will face increased persecution in the near future. According to CBN News, Brunson’s remarks were made during the Global Prayer for US Election Integrity event on Facebook recently. Brunson said that since his return to the US just over two years ago, for the first time in his life he is sensing an urgency for his country, the United States of America. Brunson explained.  He said that this urgency has been growing in him for the last two years. He is warning of increasing pressures in the U.S, especially towards people “who embrace Jesus Christ and his teaching, who are not ashamed to stand for him. My concern is that we’re not ready for this pressure. And not being prepared is very, very dangerous on a number of levels.”

In 2016, Brunson was unjustly imprisoned in Turkey after the government accused him of partaking in an alleged coup against Turkish President Erdogan. Bruson then spent the following two years in prison despite having nothing to do with the allegation. Fortunately, the imprisoned pastor was released following diplomatic intervention from the President Trump’s administration. Brunson had also established the Izmir Resurrection Church, which preached Christ and tended to Syrian refugees, including Kurds. Despite his imprisonment, Brunson believes God would providentially use his story to help prepare other Christians to persevere despite the forthcoming trials.

“I think one of the purposes God had for me in my imprisonment was that I learned perseverance at a deeper level again and again and again, as I was repeatedly broken and finally he rebuilt me,” he noted. “But one of the purposes he had for me was to learn this perseverance so that I could help to prepare others to persevere.” Brunson wants the Christians in America to understand that persecution is on the horizon for the church in this nation no matter what. He said, “I believe that persecution is coming and it’s coming quickly and it’s coming soon,” he cautioned. “What is heavy on my heart is that we need to prepare ourselves.” 

Those of us who live in this nation should not have any difficulty in understanding what Pastor Andrew Brunson is saying. Throughout the past year we saw numerous indications of it in our nation. Even though Jesus was the most loving and the kindest person in history, He was called evil, and we can expect the same as Christians. As we continue our journey down through this year, let us bear in mind the words of Jesus our Savior and Lord, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” (Jn. 16:33). 

Have a Productive and Prosperous New Year!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, December 27, 2020

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

Christian Headline News recently carried a headline which read as follows, “A Strong Case’ that Jesus’ Boyhood Home Has Been Found”. It was based on the findings of a United Kingdom archaeologist says the remains of a first-century house in Nazareth, Israel, could have been the home of Joseph, Mary and the boy Jesus. Ken Dark, a professor of archaeology and history at the University of Reading, told the BBC that there is a “strong case to be made” that the site which lies beneath the Sisters of Nazareth Convent was the home in which Jesus was raised. Professor Ken Dark began researching the site in 2006 and wrote about his findings in a new book entitled, The Sisters of Nazareth Convent: A Roman-period, Byzantine, and Crusader site in central Nazareth.

Professor Dark told the BBC, “I didn’t go to Nazareth to find the house of Jesus, I was actually doing a study of the city’s history as a Byzantine Christian pilgrimage center; nobody could have been more surprised than me.” He further explained that whoever constructed the house would have had excellent knowledge of stone-working. The Bible, in Greek, calls Joseph a “tekton,” which can be translated “craftsman” or “builder.” The dwelling dates to the first century, he says.

From written evidence, according to Dark, this particular church building was believed in the Byzantine period to have been built on the site of Jesus’ home and the dwelling preserved in the floor of the structure. He told the BBC that It is almost certainly the Church of the Nutrition, which was dedicated to the upbringing of Jesus Christ, and mentioned in a Seventh Century pilgrim’s account. The home, he said, was “a typical family home of its time and place.” There was nothing unusual about it. It is not pitifully poor, but there’s no sign of any great wealth either. It’s very ordinary, Dark said. “If this is the childhood environment of Jesus, there’s no reason to believe He grew up in anything other than a very typical Galilean rural home of its time.”

We are grateful for these discoveries that are made from time to time, giving evidence to the fact that Jesus really came to this earth in our interest. Regardless of how some try to deny it, the fact remains that Jesus came to this earth as a babe, developed into an adult, ministered to mankind for three and a half years, gave his life as a sacrifice, rose again and ascended back to heaven to return for His chosen ones at the appointed time. Amen!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, December 06, 2020

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

Just about two weeks ago, the U.S. Supreme Court delivered a major victory to religious liberty advocates. This victory prevented New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo from enforcing a restriction that limits houses of worship to 10 and 25 persons during the pandemic, regardless of the size of the building. It was the first time the nation’s highest court had sided with churches or synagogues during the pandemic. This was a 5-4 victory. The majority opinion ruled that “even in a pandemic, the Constitution cannot be put away and forgotten. The restrictions at issue here, by effectively barring many from attending religious services, strike at the very heart of the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious liberty.”

At issue were restrictions by Gov. Cuomo that limited churches and synagogues to 10 persons in so-called “red zones” and 25 persons in orange zones. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn and Agudath Israel of America brought the suit. The regulations, the court ruled, “single out houses of worship for especially harsh treatment.”In a red zone, while a synagogue or a church could not admit more than 10 persons, businesses categorized as ‘essential’ were permitted to admit as many people as they wished, the court ruled. And the list of ‘essential’ businesses included things such as acupuncture facilities, campgrounds, garages, as well as many whose services are not limited to those that can be regarded as essential, such as all plants manufacturing chemicals and microelectronics and all transportation facilities. The disparate treatment was even more striking in an orange zone. While attendance at houses of worship was limited to 25 persons, even non-essential businesses were free to decide for themselves how many persons to admit.

Both the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn and Agudath Israel of America say their houses of worship have operated at 25 percent or 33 percent capacity for months without a single outbreak, the court ruled in its decision. The New York houses of worship that brought the lawsuit can seat between 400 and 1,000 individuals. “It is hard to believe that admitting more than 10 people to a 1,000–seat church or 400–seat synagogue would create a more serious health risk than the many other activities that the State allows,” the majority ruled.

We thank God for this great victory which has been secured by the help of God for the churches in New York. As I have said numerous times, the devil is using the present circumstances to confine and crush the church. He is doing this because he is aware of the greater glory that is about to descend on the church. But we must believe what Jesus said, “I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” (Matt. 16:18). Amen!
