BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, JANUARY 28, 2018

We give God praise and thanks for today. Let us enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Welcome!

Legislators at the Iowa statehouse have introduced a bill that would permit schools to teach the Bible as an elective course. But some are opposing it as an extreme piece of legislation. State representative Dean Fisher along with 11 other republicans recently introduced house file 2031 which would direct the state department of education to prepare material and teacher training for a high school elective course that would focus on the Bible. The Des Moines Register quoted Fisher as saying, “Basically I want to give students the opportunity to study the Bible from the perspective of its impact on history and culture.”

Last year the Freedom From Religion Foundation filed a lawsuit against Mercer County Schools for offering an elective Bible course that existed in some capacity since 1939, but a federal judge David A. Faber dismissed it. He stated the following, “ The Supreme Court has by no means established an absolute bar on the Bible being taught and studied in the public school system. “

It is noteworthy that Iowa is joining a growing number of states which now have laws allowing Bible courses to be taught in their public schools. Among them are Arizona, Georgia, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas. In June last year, Kentucky Republican Governor, Matt Bevin, signed a bill allowing public schools to teach a course on the Bible. He said at the time, “The idea that we would not want this to be opinion for people in school that would be crazy. I don’t know why every state would not embrace this, why we as a nation would not embrace this.”

It would seem that there is a Bible revolution taking place in the schools across our nation. We must pray that this would become so contagious even to the point of engulfing the entire school system in our nation. Even though the Bible may be taught as a course, the fact remains that the children of our nation will be in the presence of the Word of God. And Hebrews 4: 12 tells us the following, “For the Word of God is quick (living, relevant) and powerful and shaper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit and of the joints and marrow and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Amen!

CONDOLENCES
Apostle Edghill and Pastor Emily, along with the entire F.E.A. family, express our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Brother Silton Isaac, who passed away on Wednesday, 24th on the Mainland. May God comfort and strengthen you in this difficult hour.

You Are a Sharp Instrument in the Hand of the Lord
Act Now! You are a sharp instrument in the hand of the Lord, able to thresh the highest, strongest and most stubborn enemy. To thresh means to separate grain with a flail or by the actions of a revolving mechanism. It’s a violent or noisy movement, typically involving hitting something repeatedly.
God wants you to become a terror to those things that have been a terror to you. His Word says He will make you into this new instrument-new meaning fresh, rebuilt and repaired.
He will make you sharp-determined, eager and prepared, having teeth, meaning to have a two-edged sword. When the enemy comes, have no fear. You will crush, crumble, stamp, beat in pieces, bruise and make dust of the enemy with the Word of God. The enemy will be dispersed by the whirlwind. God will cause you to rejoice and spin around with exceeding great joy!

My prayer to activate, cultivate and transform my world;
“Father, I rejoice in You! Because You make me a new, sharp,
threshing instrument having teeth, the enemy is crushed and
crumbled. I will now be a terror to those things that have tried
to terrorize me.”

Standing On The Word

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 03, 2017

Welcome to FEA! May God minister unto the needs in your life today as we minister unto Him together.

During the past week we’ve all been watching with concern as Hurricane Harvey ravaged the countless communities and cities in South Texas. Final reports indicate that the storm’s heavy rainfall and subsequent flooding were unprecedented and exceeding expectations by far. ABC News reported that the United States government deployed over 3,000 national and state guard service members, as well as 500 vehicles and 14 aircrafts to assist in rescue and recovery operations.

Although it is reassuring to see the ways government workers and officials have responded to the disaster, many still wonder if there is anything they can do to help. From so far away, it is easy for us to feel powerless. Often, our immediate reaction is to try to find the nearest plane or some other mode of transport and hope that our presence at the scene of the crisis will ultimately help serve those in need. Or, it may be the exact opposite, we may just sit anxiously watching the television reports, wringing our hands in frustration and do nothing.

However, there is something that we all can do as Christians. We can all pray. As followers of Jesus Christ, our first inclination in times of struggle, strife and disaster should be to fix our eyes not on the disaster itself, but rather on our God and Father who Himself is a present help in trouble. When we find ourselves slipping into dangerous patterns of worry on behalf of those in need, prayer is our best and surest remedy. As I always tell you, when we talk to God we are talking to somebody who can do something about everything. Nothing is beyond Him. So let us pray for the victims and their families. Pray for needed provision and for God’s hand of preservation to keep people from diseases. Most of all, pray that as a result of this crisis individuals will submit themselves to Almighty God.

After we have prayed, we need to follow Jesus as He guides us in creative ways to help in the situation. This can be an opportunity for God’s goodness to be manifested through us. Amen!

10 Reasons David is Called “A Man After God’s Own Heart”

Acts 13:22 says, “After removing Saul, he made David their king. He testified concerning him: ‘I have found David son of Jesse a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.‘”

The following words describe the heart of David as seen in his own writings: (All verses New International Version)

Humble – Lowborn men are but a breath, the highborn are but a lie; if weighed on a balance, they are nothing; together they are only a breath. Psalm 62:9

Reverent – I call to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies. Psalm 18:3

Respectful – Be merciful to me, O Lord, for I am in distress; my eyes grow weak with sorrow, my soul and my body with grief. Psalm 31:9

Trusting – The LORD is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1

Loving – I love you, O Lord, my strength. Psalm 18:1

Devoted – You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound. Psalm 4:7

Recognition – I will praise you, O Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonders. Psalm 9:1

Faithful – Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Psalm 23:6

Obedient – Give me understanding, and I will keep your law and obey it with all my heart. Psalm 119:34

Repentant – For the sake of your name, O Lord, forgive my iniquity, though it is great. Psalm 25:11

David’s example is a great road map for how we are to live our life.
Which of these areas need your greatest attention for improvement?

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY AUGUST 27, 2017

Once again we welcome you to the FEA worship experience. May you be richly blessed today.

The Barna researchers recently released the results of a survey on Americans and prayer. They surveyed 1,015 American adults ages 18 and older during the first week of June, 888 of whom identified as Christians and past Christians. The respondents were asked the following question: “What does the content of your prayers most often pertain to?” According to the data, 62 percent of respondents who pray regularly do so with varying motivations. The most common one is to offer gratitude and thanksgiving.

The needs of their family and their community are a prayer topic for many Americans. A total of 61 percent identified it as a motivation, while 49 percent pray out of a need for personal guidance in times of crisis. Just less than half of the praying adults most often direct prayers toward their own health.

Nearly 90 percent of praying American adults direct their prayers to “God” although they don’t all pray to the same deity. Addressing “God” was the most common response among almost every segment surveyed. Only 24 percent of Americans report praying most often about their concerns regarding the nation or government. The older generation seem much more likely to pray for this than the younger generation, the results show.

According to the Barna Group’s Editor-in-Chief, Roxanne Stone, prayer is by far the most common spiritual practice among Americans. No matter how politics and culture shift, Americans seem to keep praying, with the data remaining constant.”The vast majority of Americans — no matter their religious affiliation or non-affiliation — participate in some kind of prayer activity. Barna has found this to be true consistently over the last several decades. The numbers have barely changed from year to year,” she said.

It is good to know that the people in our nation are engaging in prayer. But let it be known that the only God who answers prayer is the true and living God – the God of Israel. He said “Call unto me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things which you do not know.” (Jer. 33:3).

And It Came To Pass

Our Lord has promised
To give us relief
For He is the One
Who has borne our grief,

No sigh escapes Him
No tear goes unseen
“For in Him we live and move
And have our being.”

So take courage my brother,
My sister, my friend
The trouble you’re facing
Will come to an end.

No trial comes to stay
No problem will last
For we read in the Bible
“And it came to pass.”

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY AUGUST 20, 2017

Once again we welcome you to the FEA worship experience. May you be blessed you be richly blessed today.

The massive rise of Christianity in Iran, especially among young people, continues despite the Islamic government’s efforts to suppress it. Islamic leaders admitted that more and more young people are choosing to follow Jesus. According to Mohabat News, which reports on the persecution and state of Christianity in Iran, the “exponential rate” of Christian growth has been a factor for the last couple of decades. Even leading Islamic seminary officials have pointed to accurate reports which indicate that the young people in Iran are becoming Christians and attending house churches. They are greatly alarmed over it and are blaming foreign influence for the conversions. Ayatollahs have slammed government officials for their negligence in preparing counteracting strategies to stop the spread of Christianity.

Mohabat News pointed out that this high rate of conversions to Christianity among Iranian youth is taking place despite the rigorous Islamic indoctrination of the youth in their families and the educational system. They also reported that the Islamic government of Iran dedicates massive budgets to the support of Islamic organizations that promote Islam among the young people within and without Iran’s borders.

But it is clear that regardless of such efforts, Iranian youth are becoming increasingly distant from Islam. This is indeed a cause for grave concern for the Iranian Islamic government. The New York-based Center for Human Rights in Iran said in a report in July that Iranian authorities are increasingly cracking down on Christian converts in the country, arresting and imprisoning believers in an effort to suppress Christianity.

There is a strong belief among Church leaders, that millions can be added to the church in the next few years because of the spiritual hunger and disillusionment that exist within the Islamic world. Let us remember to pray for those who are coming to Christ in Iran that God would preserve and keep them in that difficult situation. Amen!

We welcome you today with opened hearts and hands. May you be blessed as you worship with us.

A team of archaeologists may have located the home of three of Jesus’ disciples. It was found in a lost Roman imperial city off of the Sea of Galilee. Researchers from Kinneret College believe they have found the Roman city of Julias, which was built as part of the town of Bethsaida. This is identified in John 1:44 as the hometown of Philip, Andrew, and Peter. The team of archaeologists said that the multi-layered site discovered on the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee, in the Bethsaida Valley Nature Reserve, is the exact location according to a report in the Israeli news paper- Haaretz, last Sunday.

The report states that the key discovery is that of an advanced Roman-style bathhouse. This fact, according to the paper, indicates that a city was definitely there and not just a fishing village. The excavators found walls with gilded glass tesserae for a mosaic, an indication of a wealthy and important church. Kinneret College said in a statement that it is widely believed that a church used to be on the former site of the Apostles’ home, thus adding evidence that the recent find is legitimate. “The discovery of dozens of golden glass mosaics in the previous season and the present season attests to the fact that the church was an important and magnificent place,” stated the college. “A Christian traveler of the eighth century CE notes that in the house of Tsaida the church is in honor of Peter and Andrew — two of Jesus’ apostles.”

This is not the first major find by researchers connected to Kinneret College regarding the New Testament. Last August, researchers under Motti Aviam found a first century synagogue near Mount Tabor. This is the first synagogue discovered in the rural part of the Galilee and it confirms historical information about the New Testament, which says that Jesus preached at synagogues in Galilean villages.

We thank God for these archeological discoveries that are confirming scripture. Let us pray that persons who do not know Jesus will be convinced about the truth of God’s Word upon hearing about them.

To Do List From God

I ran my life in search of worldly things;
My time and will were firmly in control.
I thought I had no need for what God brings;
I gave no heed to murmurs from my soul.
“You’re planning, doing all the time,” it said,
“But something else is missing deep inside.
Your mind is whirling, but your heart is dead,
So turn to God and let go of your pride.”

I did, and God said, “Here’s My plan for you:
Give your life to Me, and just let go.
Have faith and pray, and read the Bible through,
And you’ll have blessings more than you can know.”

So simple, yet it brings me perfect peace,
Living life for God the way I should.
Direction, purpose, fullness and release—
Life with God is very, very good.

-By Joanna Fuchs
The Christian poem above, To Do List From God, is a Christian verse that focuses on how much better and more peaceful life is when we move away from worldly things and closer to Jesus. Christian poems often talk about the transition to Christianity. This poem for Christians is for those who remember what their lives were like before being saved. To Do List from God is a Christian poem about Christians, also a Christian rhyme, that reveals how the stresses of the world and our need to plan and control things can make life difficult. When we turn it all over to God, life becomes so much more peaceful and satisfying, as this Christian poem says.

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY AUGUST 06, 2017

Welcome to Frenchtown Evangelistic Assembly worship service. May you be blessed as you worship today.

Two Christian pro-life teenagers have recently won a settlement against their school district. The teenagers were harassed by their gay Pennsylvania public school vice principal, Zach Ruff, when they were protesting abortion outside their school on a public sidewalk. Ruff confronted the teens angrily and tried to shield the other students from seeing the protest as they were leaving school on April 21. Conner and Lauren Hanes who are brothers said they were trying to expose the negative impact of abortion which has claimed the lives of 60 million unborn babies since the procedure became legal in 1973.

According to the Alliance Defending Freedom, the Downingtown Area School District came to a settlement and has agreed to clarify its policies to assure that the public sidewalks surrounding the district’s schools are open to those wanting to use their First Amendment rights to publicly demonstrate, even if what they are demonstrating is at odds with school officials’ political views.

In a video posted to YouTube, the siblings told the administrator they are simply trying to expose “the holocaust that’s happening in America.” Ruff responded by stating that there is “no Halocaust happening in America.” Conner Haines then told Ruff that “these [unborn children] are the people that are being murdered,” adding, “these are image bearers of God.” Ruff replied, “They are not children they are cells.”

Despite the trend of young people to gravitate toward the worldly beliefs and ideologies, it is heart-warming to note that there are still many teenagers who are embracing the knowledge of the true God and are willing to take their stand for Him publicly. God told Jeremiah, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; and before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations” (Jer. 1:5). God bless the two young men and may they have an ever growing influence on other young people for God.

Received–Not Earned

What if prospective parents approached an adoption agency with these questions?

We just have a question or two before we come in and sign the adoption papers. Will he be a good child? Healthy always? Oh, and can he fix his own meals? Do his own laundry?
Can you imagine prospective parents saying that? No adoption agency would put up with it. They’d respond with Wait a minute. You don’t understand. You don’t adopt this child because of what he has; you adopt him because of what he needs. He needs a home.

The same is true with God. John 3:17 says,
“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”

He doesn’t adopt us because of what we have. He doesn’t give us His name because of our intelligence, or our wallet or good attitude. Adoption is something we receive —not something we earn!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY JULY 30, 2017

We give God praise and thanks for our gathering together again in His name. May He be glorified by us today!

A new study out of Switzerland shows that people who are generous and focus on helping others are happier than those who act on their own self-interests. Philippe Tobler and Ernst Fehr from the Department of Economics at the University of Zurich, along with a team of international researchers, conducted an experiment with 50 people in a lab. The team sought to investigate how areas of the brain communicate to produce feelings of happiness.

The study’s participants were promised 25 Swiss francs a week for four weeks. Twenty-five of them were asked to spend the money on others; the other 25 were told they could spend it on themselves. The participants consistently reported that giving made them feel good. MRI scans of their brains were done simultaneously and showed that one area of the brain triggers a response in another area that is related to happiness.

“Generosity and happiness improve individual well-being and can facilitate societal success,” they said. “However, in everyday life, people underestimate the link between generosity and happiness and therefore overlook the benefits of … spending” on others, they continued. Christian Smith, a University of Notre Dame sociologist and Hilary Davidson, note in the book, The Paradox of Generosity: Giving We Receive, Grasping We Lose, that generosity has a positive effect on the brain and a lack of generosity can have a negative effect. Smith cited a study showing that stingy people have been shown to secrete more cortisol in the brain, a stress hormone that is known for creating “wear and tear” on the body.

Once again the Bible has been proved to be true. “The liberal soul shall be made fat, and he that watereth shall be watered also himself” (Proverbs 11:25). “…It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:25). Let us open our hearts and hands to those around us whenever the opportunity arises and keep on giving!

Fruit Of The Spirit

Part 2: Fruit of the Spirit – Visible Growth in Jesus Christ

Longsuffering (patience) — We are “strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness” (Colossians 1:11). “With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love” (Ephesians 4:2).

Gentleness (kindness) — We should live “in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love; in truthful speech and in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left” (2 Corinthians 6:6-7).

Goodness – “Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power” (2 Thessalonians 1:11). “For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth” (Ephesians 5:9).

Faith (faithfulness) – “O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth” (Isaiah 25:1). “I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith” (Ephesians 3:16-17).

Meekness – “Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted” (Galatians 6:1). “With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love” (Ephesians 4:2).

Temperance (self-control) – “But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love” (2 Peter 1:5-7).
Fruit of the Spirit – A Devotional for All Christians

The fruit of the Spirit is a wonderful study for Christians at any level of spiritual maturity. We hope this website provides a thought-provoking devotional and a springboard for growth.

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY JULY 23, 2017

Praise the Lord! We are happy to be together again, we give God praise and thanks for another Sunday to come together for corporate worship.

The Bible teaches us that all people were meant to have friendship with God. It began that way, but ever since Adam and Eve, man has fought against that relationship. Instead of living in peace with God and each other, we find conflict and disagreement… or worse!

Man has a habit of living for himself. We often ignore God and pursue our own plans. Our selfish choices do not bring us life. In fact, they earn us a death sentence. God understands that mankind battles with sin. He understands that we are frustrated with how things turn out. He also knows that left to ourselves, we would not always do the right thing. So, God stepped in and made a way for us to find forgiveness and begin again.

How did God do this? He sent His Son, Jesus Christ to live among us. He taught us a better way. Jesus was perfect in every way, but mankind was not happy with God’s way forward. While Jesus taught us to love God and each other, evil men plotted his death upon a cross. They took him away and tried his case unfairly. The same people that Jesus taught, healed and fed, forced a Roman Governor to sentence Him to death on a cross.

Jesus died to take our sins on His shoulders. He paid the price for the wrongs we have done. Because He died in our place, we can find God’s forgiveness. But the story did not end there!

Jesus paid the price for our sins by dying on that cross. Three days later, He rose from the dead. Hundreds of witnesses saw Jesus alive again before he rose to heaven. They heard Jesus promise that when we accept Him here on earth, we would be able to be in heaven with Him when we die.

Now, Jesus is willing to forgive our sins. He knows our weaknesses. He offers to make a way for us, but only if we will ask Him. If you want to be free from your sins, if you want to begin again, ask Him for forgiveness. It is not complicated.

Simply talk to God and say: “Thank you, God, for loving me and sending your Son to die on the cross for the wrongs I have done. I am sorry for the things I have done that hurt You. I choose to make Jesus the Lord of my life. Help me to be the kind of person that You want me to be. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

God Loves You! God wants a relationship with you. He made a way for us to find forgiveness and begin again. Start that relationship with him today for He says,
“Behold, now is “THE ACCEPTABLE TIME,” behold, now is “THE DAY OF SALVATION”. (2 Corinthians 6:2)

Fruit Of The Spirit
Part 1: Fruit of the Spirit – Visible Growth in Jesus Christ

“Fruit of the Spirit” is a biblical term that sums up the nine visible attributes of a true Christian life. Using the King James Version of Galatians 5:22-23, these attributes are: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance. We learn from scripture that these are not individual “fruits” from which we pick and choose. Rather, the fruit of the Spirit is one ninefold “fruit” that characterizes all who truly walk in the Holy Spirit. Collectively, these are the fruits that all Christians should be producing in their new lives with Jesus Christ.

Fruit of the Spirit – The Nine Biblical Attributes
The fruit of the Spirit is a physical manifestation of a Christian’s transformed life. In order to mature as believers, we should study and understand the attributes of the ninefold fruit:

Love – “And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him” (1 John 4:16). Through Jesus Christ, our greatest goal is to do all things in love. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails” (1 Corinthians 13:4-8).

Joy – “The joy of the Lord is your strength” (Nehemiah 8:10). “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:2).

Peace – “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1). “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:13).

OVERCOMER: Living a Life of Victory!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY JULY 16, 2017

Once again we welcome you as we gather to worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. May His name be glorified in us.

A Chinese woman named Ting, who had formally been involved in Shamanism has dedicated her life to Jesus Christ after seeing Him in a dream while on her deathbed. Shamanism deals in the realm of darkness and demons. Ting had the ability to attract “thousands” of people to seek her counsel. But one day her health started to deteriorate. She was left completely paralyzed, and doctors were unable to explain her illness.

As she was on her deathbed, Ting said she experienced a dream in which she saw Jesus. “I was in the back seat of a taxi as my brother drove me toward an endless darkness. But then three men, who were wearing brilliant white robes, approached. But their light was so bright, I couldn’t see their faces. They told me I must make a choice. And as they spoke, two other men wearing black robes invited me to follow them. I knew in my heart one of the men wearing a white robe was Jesus. So I followed Him.”

When she woke up, she realized that she was healed. Ting knew it was Christ who healed her, and so she decided to “place her life into His hands.” Ting rejected her former life of involvement with demons and darkness. “But despite the persecution and abuse she suffered at the hands of her family, she decided to become a Christian.

According to a report in Open Doors, Chinese Christians, especially in Ting’s rural area, face severe persecution. Conversion to Christianity is considered to be an “utter disgrace,” and it causes great strains on one’s relationship with one’s family. Christians are disowned by loved ones and banished into exile. Ting’s story serves as a reminder that nobody lives “outside the reach of Jesus.” For God so loved the world; that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16).

DISCOURAGED?
YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER HAS SOMETHING TO SAY

Dear child of mine,

I am one who comforts you. I bought you and complete you. I delight in you and claim you as my own, rejoicing over you as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride. I will never fail you or forsake you. You are worried and troubled about many things; trust me with all your heart. I know how to rescue godly people from their trials. Let me strengthen you with my glorious power. I did not spare my Son but gave him up for you. Won’t I give you everything else?

When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. So, don’t worry. I never tire or sleep. I stand beside you. The angel of the LORD encamps around you. I hide you in the shelter of my presence. I will go ahead of you, directing your steps and delighting in every detail of your life. If you stumble, you will not fall, for I hold you by the hand. I will guide you along the best pathway for your life.

I will make you fruitful in the land of suffering, trading beauty for ashes, joy for mourning, praise for despair. I live with the low spirited and spirit crushed. I put new spirit in you and get you on your feet again. Weeping may go on all night, but joy comes with the morning. If I am for you, who can ever be against you?

You sometimes say, “The Lord has deserted me; the Lord has forgotten me.” But can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for a child she has borne? Even if that were possible, I would not forget you! I paid for you with the precious lifeblood of Christ, my sinless, spotless Lamb. No one will snatch you away from me. See, I have written your name on my hand. I call you my friend. Why, the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are valuable to me.

Give me your burdens; I will take care of you.

Your Maker, your Father,

God

OVERCOMER: Living a Life of Victory!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY JULY 9, 2017

Once again we welcome you as we gather to worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. May His name be glorified in us.

Two U.K. preachers, Michael Overd and Michael Stockwell were convicted of “religiously aggravated public disorder” in February. They were accused of hate speech against Muslims and gay people after simply reading from the King James Bible and affirming that “Jesus is the only way to God” before a crowd of 100 people.

Today, they are enjoying a sweeping victory after winning their appeal at the Bristol Crown Court. At the appeal hearing Overd said that he does not hate Muslims or gays, but while he disagrees with homosexual people, he doesn’t find them to be worse than anyone else. He calls himself a “Christian soldier,” and has vowed to be back on the streets preaching. Stockwell, a former U.S. marine in responding to the decision of the court, remarked that people should have the freedom “to express their beliefs in public without risk of harm, violence or other repercussions.”

Bristol Crown Court judges stated that despite witness reports that the preachers had been intentionally trying to wind people up; there was no evidence provided that the offense was religiously aggravated. Andrea Williams from the Christian Legal Center which was supporting the preachers said, “At a time where Christians are becoming increasingly fearful about expressing their beliefs in the public space, this is a welcome and needed result. We are grateful that the judge made the right decision today.”

Jesus has commanded us to go into the entire world and preach the gospel to everyone. He also assures us of His abiding presence with us in the process. Therefore, we have no need to fear no matter what the devil may try to do against us. In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loves us. Amen!

Freely You Have Received, Freely Give

Then Peter came up to Him and said, Lord, how many times may my brother sin against me and I forgive him and let it go? [As many as] up to seven times? Jesus answered him, I tell you, not up to seven times, but seventy times seven
– Matthew 18:21-22

I don’t know about you, but I am glad that God does not put a limit on how many times He will forgive us. Regardless of how many times we fall short, He continues to demonstrate His love for us by forgiving us and welcoming us back time and time again.

But isn’t it amazing how we are willing to keep receiving forgiveness from God, yet how little we want to give forgiveness to others? We freely accept mercy, yet it is surprising how rigid, legalistic, and merciless we can be toward others.

The bottom line is this: As people who have been forgiven much, it is important we learn to share that same forgiveness with others. We can’t live in close relationship with God while we harbor bitterness, resentment, and unforgiveness toward another person. These are chains that will keep us spiritually bound up and far from God’s best in our lives.
If there are people who have hurt you and you are finding it difficult to forgive them, just remember all the things God has forgiven you for. When you look at it that way, forgiveness becomes something much easier to give to others.

God’s grace helps us do things easily that would otherwise be hard.
