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!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, AUGUST 01, 2021

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

Pastors in China were recently ordered to adjust their sermons to incorporate elements of President Xi Jinping’s speech delivered on July 1, the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party. The Three-Self Patriotic Movement, the government-controlled Protestant Church, held a national conference with the China Christian Council, which supervises education in the Three-Self churches. The conference’s theme was Learning and Implementing the Spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping’s Speech which he made on July 1.

During the conference, pastors were told to integrate Jinping’s speech, which celebrated the CCP’s Marxist roots into their sermons and Bible study groups. Wu Wei, Chairman of the Chinese Christian Council, called on pastors to stress the fact that “the Chinese Communist Party has never changed its original intention to put the people first, establish an extensive patriotic united front, unite the citizens’ hearts, gather strength, and continue to explore and innovate.”

According to Bitter Winter Three-Self’s leader Xu Xiaohong addressed the conference by providing a model sermon featuring nine points taken from the July 1 speech. Among the points were instructions for pastors to highlight that the Communist party is the “people’s party,” encourage Christians to trust the CCP because it has “successfully” governed China over the last 70 years, and praise President Xi Jinping and the CCP’s ability to bring about the “great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.” Pastors were also told to tell Christians to endorse CCP leaders and the idea that “only socialism can save China” and to tell foreign leaders that “the era when the Chinese nation was slaughtered and bullied is gone forever.”

Under the nine points, pastors were also told that Christians must regularly repeat the slogans of: “Long live the great, glorious and correct Chinese Communist Party!” and “Long live the great, glorious and heroic Chinese people!”

Let us continue to pray for our brethren who are suffering such severe persecution in China. China is ranked 17 on Open Doors list of countries where it is most difficult for Christians to live. For churches to stay open, they must adopt the Chinese cultural identity as promoted by the CCP. But we are so grateful to God for His abundant grace, which is sufficient for us no matter what the circumstances are. Amen!

THE YEAR OF ADVANCEMENT

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, JULY 25, 2021

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

A piece of writing, roughly 3,100-years old, containing the name of a figure mentioned as one of the judges in the Old Testament, has been discovered. According to an article published in the Jersalem Journal of Archaeology, five letters that appear to represent the name “Jerubbaal” were found on a piece of pottery discovered in Southern Israel among other finds dating somewhere between the 11th and 12th centuries B.C. Researchers said the pot was unearthed at Khirbet er-Ra‘i, near Kiryat Gat in the Southern District of Israel. The chronological framework for this figure is the period of the Judges, and so a time frame for him in the twelfth or eleventh century BCE (the date of the inscription) is entirely plausible.”

However, the announcement of the find noted that although the pottery bears the name of a Biblical figure, archeologists cannot go any further. The name of the Judge, Gideon ben Yoash, was Jerubbaal, but archaeologists are not certain if he owned the vessel on which the inscription is written in ink. The name Jerubbaal is familiar from biblical tradition in the Book of Judges as an alternative name for the judge Gideon ben Yoash, Professor Yossef Garfinkel and archeologist Sa‘ar Ganor from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, who co-directed the excavations, said in a  joint statement. The statement noted that Inscriptions from the period of the Judges are extremely rare and almost unparalleled in Israeli archaeology. Only a handful of inscriptions found in the past bear a number of unrelated letters.

This is the first time that the name Jerubbaal has ever been found outside the Bible in an archaeological context, in a stratum dated to around 1,100 BCE, the period of the Judges. The archeologists noted that Gideon was a significant Biblical figure. He is first mentioned as combating idolatry by breaking the altar to Baal and cutting down the Asherah pole. In Biblical tradition, he is remembered as triumphing over the Midianites, who used to cross over the Jordan to plunder agricultural crops. According to the Bible in Judges Chapter 7, Gideon organized a small army of 300 soldiers and attacked the Midianites by night. Garfinkel said the settlement they uncovered appeared to have reached its apex at the time of the Judges. It is also important to note that the name Ishbaal, which is only mentioned in the Bible during the monarchy of King David, has been found in strata dated to that particular period also.

The fact that identical names mentioned in the Bible are also found in inscriptions recovered from archaeological excavations, shows that memories were preserved and passed down through the generations. But most important is the fact that these discoveries also serve to confirm the truth of the Bible. The Bible is not just another book, rather it is the Book of truth – the only book that ultimately matters. Let us value the Word of God for what it’s worth. Amen!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, JULY 18, 2021

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

America’s largest evangelical prison ministry organization, Prison Fellowship, recently partnered with Moody Bible Institute to create new daily devotionals to be distributed to over 100,000 inmates across the United States. The two 120-day devotionals, which are based on Moody’s, Today In The Word, daily devotional, contain readings on all four Gospels and include Bible studies, discussion questions and a series of Christian testimonies from previously incarcerated persons who became Christians while in prison. While one devotional is crafted for incarcerated men, the other is geared toward incarcerated women. 

This particular partnership has been described as one of the largest outreach efforts in Prison Fellowship’s 45-year history. Prison Fellowship chaplains began distributing the Bibles to inmates on July 1.  “We are thrilled to have partnered with Moody Bible Institute and we cannot wait to see so many lives changed through these devotionals,” Prison Fellowship Vice President of Field Programs Dan Kingery told The Christian Post. The devotionals are handheld books written by professors and staff members of Moody Bible Institute.  The books have been ordered by many prisons throughout the U.S. They will be distributed to inmates who choose to receive copies. The devotionals encourage incarcerated individuals to lead Bible-centered and goal-oriented lives. 

Kingery understands that people in prison face the same kinds of spiritual struggles that people outside prison face. However, he explains that the spiritual struggles may be heightened for inmates due to a lack of access to friends and family and having no time alone. He added that while inmates are often in very crowded prisons, they can feel very lonely because they are not near their close friends or family. The mission of Prison Fellowship is to restore those impacted by crime and incarceration. 

Jamie Janosz, managing editor of Today In The Word, who helped write the devotionals, said, “The bigger picture is to show others how the Word of God is applicable to their daily lives, and to show those in prisons how to read a scripture passage and reflect and pray while modeling what it looks like to live out a Gospel-centered life through the testimonies in the books. We wanted to make the devotionals understandable for the inmates so they could live out what they read.”

We give God praise and thanks for this combined effort between Prison Fellowship and Moody Bible Institute targeting prison inmates. The Bible commands us to “Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them…” (Heb. 13:3). Let us remember to pray for the success of this venture, that the kingdom of God would be greatly expanded as a result. Amen!

On Thursday July 1st, the US State Department announced that it will be adding a third gender to passports for Americans. Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, made the announcement, saying that the Department of State is committed to promoting the freedom, dignity, and equality of all people – including LGBTQI+ persons.  He went on to say that  since assuming office, President Biden had taken several executive actions demonstrating his administration’s commitment to human rights and has directed agencies across the U.S. government to take concrete actions to promote and protect the human rights of LGBTQI+ persons around the world.  He further added how the Department would be taking additional steps toward ensuring the fair treatment of LGBTQI+ U.S. citizens, regardless of their gender or sex, by beginning the process of updating our procedures for the issuance of U.S. Passports and Consular Reports of Birth Abroad (CRBA).

“Most immediately, said Tony Blinken, “we will be updating our procedures to allow applicants to self-select their gender as “M” or “F” and will no longer require medical certification if an applicant’s self-selected gender does not match the gender on their other citizenship or identity documents.  The Department has begun moving towards adding a gender marker for non-binary, intersex, and gender non-conforming persons applying for a passport or CRBA.  We are evaluating the best approach to achieve this goal.  The process of adding a gender marker for non-binary, intersex, and gender non-conforming persons to these documents is technologically complex and will take time for extensive systems updates.  The Department will also be working closely with its interagency partners to ensure as smooth a travel experience as possible for the passport holder.”

But almost immediately, Evangelist Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, responded to this decision, condemning it and expressing disappointment that our government would fall for this kind of absurdity. He said, “This administration seems to have declared war on common sense, and they want everyone to go along with a lie. This is another reminder of the desperate need for Christians to PRAY for our nation and all those in leadership. We need God’s mercy and help.”

Evangelist Graham is perfectly correct. The Word of God makes it abundantly clear that God created two genders only, male and female. But our leaders seem to think that they have now taken the place of God, so that they are adding a third gender. Our nation is in trouble with God! We need to heed Graham’s advice and begin to pray earnestly for our nation before it is too late. Amen!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, July 4, 2021

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

Shortly before schools closed for the summer holidays, school officials in Illinois were forced to reverse their decision to ban a second-grade girl from bringing her Bible to school. The girl, whose name is Gabrielle, likes to bring her Bible to school and would sometimes read it aloud during recess. Other children would often sit, listen and discuss what Gabrielle was reading with her. But a few weeks ago, despite there being no complaints from her fellow students or their parents, a teacher saw her reading with her friends and confiscated the Bible from her. The teacher told Gabrielle the following, “You can’t be doing that.” The school later followed up by contacting the little girl’s parents and told them that Gabrielle was not allowed to read her Bible during recess.

It was in response to this that the parents reached out to the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ).  The ACLJ is a conservative law firm focusing on the issues of religious freedom. From its founding in 1990, it has been at the forefront of defending the First Amendment rights of students to pray, evangelize, read their Bibles, and, generally speaking, engage in religious expression in public schools. Their Chief Counsel, Jay Sekulow, a devout Christian, argued and won two of the most consequential Supreme Court victories in this area. These victories make it clear that the First Amendment does indeed apply to students at every level of the school system.

The ACLJ then sent a letter to the school citing several cases throughout history where students’ religious beliefs were allowed unless the school believed that the speech or expression could “materially and substantially disrupt the work and discipline of the school.” The law firm contended that in Gabrielle’s case, “there wasn’t even a hint of disruption of the work and discipline of the school – not even a complaint – there was no reason to crack down on a second grader’s reading of her Bible on the playground or in the classroom during recess.” After reviewing the letter from the ACLJ, the school then thanked the ACLJ for educating them and removed all restrictions on Gabrielle’s reading. She is now free to continue reading her Bible on the school premises during recess as she was doing.

We thank God for legal firms like the ACLJ that is standing up for the right of students in our schools to pray, evangelize, read their Bibles, and engage in religious expression. This first amendment right was enshrined in the constitution when our forefathers founded this nation.

And as we celebrate its founding today, we give God thanks for this first amendment right. The ACLJ has made it abundantly clear that they will continue to aggressively defend the right of students to free religious exercise in our schools. May God’s blessing be upon them as they continue this fight! Amen!

THE YEAR OF ADVANCEMENT

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, June 27, 2021

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

Officials in Boston have designated one of the flagpoles outside their city hall as a public forum, and they have approved hundreds of private flags to fly there ceremonially. However, when a local organization, Camp Constitution, requested permission to fly a Christian flag, the officials refused. They claimed that their rules didn’t allow Christian flags to be flown. Officials from Camp Constitution were joined by the legal team at Liberty Counsel in protesting the city’s agenda, and now that fight is being presented to the U.S. Supreme Court. Just last week, Liberty Counsel filed a petition to the court on behalf of Boston resident Hal Shurtleff and his organization, arguing that the city violated the First Amendment by censoring a private flag in a public forum merely because the application form referred to the flag as a Christian flag.

The filing contends that the first Circuit’s government speech finding cannot be correct under this court’s precedents because (1) the city’s flag raising application form designates the flag poles as a ‘public forum’ for the private speech of ‘all applicants;’ (2) the city never censored a flag from 284 applications over 12 years before (3) the city approved 39 flags in the year prior to Camp Constitution’s application; and (4) the raising of other country’s flags cannot be the city’s speech because it would be a crime under state law for the city to raise another country’s flag on city hall. According to Liberty Counsel, “Despite the clear evidence presented at trial, the First Circuit Court of Appeals sided with the city of Boston’s censorship of the Christian viewpoint on the public forum.

This fight dates back to 2017, when the Camp first made the request to fly the flag on Constitution Day, and was refused.  That happened despite the fact the city has allowed the Turkish flag, which includes the Islamic star and crescent, the Portuguese flag and its religious imagery, message flags including pride and transgender agendas, as well as the flags of Communist China, Cuba, Albania, Brazil, Ethiopia, Italy, Panama, Peru, Portugal and Mexico. Liberty Counsel’s chairman, Mat Staver, said, “We look forward to the U.S. Supreme Court acknowledging the city’s obvious and unconstitutional discrimination against Camp Constitution’s Christian viewpoint. Censoring religious viewpoints in a public forum where secular viewpoints are permitted is unconstitutional and this must stop.” 

It is very obvious that the Devil is busy seeking to launch an all-out attack on all things Christian in our nation – even on the very Christian flag. He wants for there to be total silence about God and Christianity in this nation that was founded on Christian principles. We must, therefore, rise up and wage spiritual warfare for the salvation of our nation as we have never done before! May God help us so to do! Amen!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, JUNE 20, 2021

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

The most widely accepted story on the origin of Father’s Day comes from Spokane, Washington. Sonora Smart Dodd, who grew up without a mother, was looking for a way to publicly recognize, thank and honor her father who had raised six children single-handedly. She brought the idea to her pastor and church members who embraced the idea and held the first Father’s Day celebration on June 19, 1909. The day as it was established was well meaning, but it is impossible to improve on Scripture. Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise: “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.”(Ephesians 6:1-3). Because there is a link between honoring our parents and honoring God, we need to be aware of the unintended consequences of establishing this day to honor fathers. People tend to forget the history that led to the establishment of this day of honor and begin to act as if it is the only day that they should or need to honor their fathers.

It has been said that Father’s Day is just like Mother’s Day except you spend less on the gift! But putting all humor aside, it is very clear that society has sadly downplayed the importance of a father in the home. Too many children are being raised without their fathers in their lives. And too many fathers who are still in the same home with their children are not active enough in their families’ lives.  This is really a tragedy. A true father provides for the physical needs of his family. Besides the obvious food, clothing, and shelter, etc., children need time as well. The greatest physical thing a father can give to his children is himself. A true father provides for the spiritual direction of the family. Fathers need to take the spiritual lead and guide their families toward heaven.  A true father provides for the proper discipline of the family. There are many effective forms of discipline, and a true father knows that proper and timely discipline will yield the fruit of righteousness. He is, therefore, not hesitant to discipline. A true father provides sympathetic understanding to all the members of the family. Fathers need to express their love, communicate with, and show compassion to their children. This is something for which children yearn.

While we are thankful that our nation pauses on this day to recognize the blessing of fatherhood, let us remember that God expects us to honor fathers not just on Father’s Day, but every day of the year. We thank God for Christian fathers who take their God-given responsibility seriously; who heed the admonition in Ephesians 4:6, “And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” May God’s blessing be upon all the fathers today. Amen!”

Fathers are wonderful people

Too little understood,
And we do not sing their praises
As often as we should…
But FATHERS are just wonderful,
In a million different ways,
And they merit loving compliments
And accolade of praise,
For the only reason Dad aspires
To fortune and success
Is to make the family proud of him
And to bring them HAPPINESS…
And like our Heavenly Father,
He’s a guardian and a guide,
Someone that we can count on
To be always on our side.
Happy Fathers Day

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, JUNE 13, 2021

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

Law professors and scholars are calling on the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom to pressure the State Department to sanction Finland’s prosecutor general for prosecuting a Christian politician who shared her biblical beliefs on sexuality and marriage. In an open letter published by Real Clear Politics recently, professors from Ivy League institutions like Harvard University, Yale University and Princeton University spoke out in defense of Päivi Räsänen and Bishop Juhana Pohjola. They both face criminal charges related to Räsänen expressing her Christian views on marriage. Räsänen, a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland, could face up to six years in prison after being charged with three counts of ethnic agitation related to her statements.

Räsänen is the mother of five children and is married to a pastor and Bible college principal. She publicly voiced her opinion on marriage in a booklet on sexual ethics, describing marriage as between one man and one woman. She also expressed her views on a radio show. But prosecutors are saying that her statements disparage and discriminate against LGBT individuals and foment intolerance and defamation. In their open letter, the professors argue that the prosecution of the politician for her remarks could compel Finland’s clergy and believers to choose between prison and abandoning teachings of their various faiths.

Dr. Räsänen stated that homosexual activity should be recognized by the church as sinful, based on the teachings of the Hebrew Bible and Christian scripture. The Prosecutor General has also charged the Bishop-Elect of the Evangelical Lutheran Mission Diocese of Finland, Rev. Dr. Juhana Pohjola, with one count of ethnic agitation for publishing Dr. Räsänen’s booklet. 

The professors in their letter said that “The Prosecutor General’s pursuit of these charges against a prominent legislator and bishop sends an unmistakable message to Finns of every strata of society, that no one who holds to the traditional teachings of Judaism, Christianity and other religions    on questions of marriage and sexual morality will be safe from state harassment, should they, like Bishop Pohjola and Dr. Räsänen, express their moral and religious convictions.

It is a fact that we are living in very crucial times as Christians. Jesus said about us as His followers, “And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved,” (Mk. 13:13). Dr. Räsänen said that she did not threaten, slander or insult anyone and that her comments were all “based on the Bible’s teachings on marriage and sexuality.” She has vowed to defend her right to “confess” her faith. “The more Christians keep silent on controversial themes, the narrower the space for freedom of speech gets,” she said. Let us remember to pray for Dr. Rasanen that God would strengthen and uphold her in this trying hour.

A Perfect Example of
A Good, Good Father

This coming Father’s Day, as you remember your earthly father, take time to thank your heavenly Father for seeing you, knowing you, and wanting you as his very own child.

John 3:16-17KJV
16 
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
