BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2020

We welcome you to FEA, where we are overcoming through the power of the Word. We are happy to have you!

The leading Christian persecution watchdog nongovernmental organization Open Doors USA, recently released its 2020 World Watch List. The report highlights a drastic increase in attacks against Christian buildings and the imprisonment of Christians. It ranks the worst 50 countries in the world when it comes to the persecution of Christians and is based on data compiled by Open Doors’ operations in 60 countries. This year’s list names a number of repeat offenders such as North Korea, China, Iran, Somalia, and Eritrea as well as new countries where radical Islamic extremism wreaked havoc on Christian communities in 2019. 

Open Doors rolled out the 2020 report at a briefing attended by representatives of the Trump administration, Congress, the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom and prominent human rights activists. The report finds that about 260 million Christians experience “high levels of persecution” in the top 50 countries on the list. This is an increase of about 6 percent from the 2019 report. The report also states that 9,488 “churches or Christian buildings”, an average of 25 per day, were attacked during the 2019 reporting period (Nov. 1, 2018, to Oct. 31, 2019). By comparison, Open Doors noted in last year’s report that 1,266 churches or Christian buildings were attacked.

There has been an increase in the number of Christians that have been detained without trial, arrested and imprisoned. In the 2019 report it was 2,625, but in this year’s report it is 3,711.  However, the report indicates a decrease in the number of Christians killed for their faith. At least 2,983 Christians were killed for faith-related reasons during the last reporting period. That is an average of eight Christians killed per day. By comparison, an average of 11 Christians was killed per day (4,136) during Open Doors’ 2018 reporting period.  The decrease in killings according to Open Doors, was due to the Islamic terror group Boko Haram killing fewer Christians in Nigeria. Nigeria represents the most violent country in the world for Christians as far as the organization’s data can track.  The top 10 countries for Christian persecution on the 2020 World Watch list are, North Korea, Afghanistan, Somalia, Libya, Pakistan, Eritrea, Sudan, Yemen, Iran and India. 

Let us use this information to help motivate us to pray for our persecuted brethren all across the world. The Word of God admonishes us as follows, “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”

THE YEAR OF GOD’S GLORY

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 2020

We welcome you to FEA, where we are overcoming through the power of the Word. We are happy to have you!

The Global Year of the Bible is now in progress as mission’s organizations, churches and other ministries are seeking to usher in a grassroots “Bible revival” in 2020. Evangelist Nick Hall, founder of Pulse, an evangelistic organization, said that many people, including Christians, have yet to learn to love the Word of God. A .D. 2020, The Global Year of the Bible, the first initiative of its kind, is a global movement created by a coalition of mission’s organizations, including World Evangelical Alliance, Wycliffe Bible Translators, Youth With a Mission, and American Bible Society. The goal is to motivate Christians and nonbelievers worldwide to authentically engage with the “most misunderstood book in history.”

As the movement aims to end Bible poverty worldwide, one of the problems in Western cultures today, organizers say, is that the Bible is becoming less significant as more children are growing up without exposure to the Gospel or a biblical worldview.  Barna research suggests that while almost half of Americans identify as Christian, only a small fraction of Americans hold a biblical worldview. Nick Hall explained that the aim is to inspire people to form a biblical foundation for themselves at a time in history when it is “so easy to be led by feelings and emotion.” He said it is important for the next generation to be “anchored on the rock and not on the shifting sands of culture.” 

According to Hall, several youth organizations are rallying around the effort, including Intervarsity Christian Fellowship. In June, thousands of Christians will gather at the Lincoln Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., to read the Bible and worship at Together 2020, an event that will feature some of the day’s most well-known Christian leaders and musicians. Hall said that the entire day will be a tribute to the Bible.  It will feature three hours of a public reading of Scripture from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. In addition to the sermons and performances, the organizers are working on obtaining state and federal declarations proclaiming 2020 as the “Year of the Bible. The Year of the Bible Movement has also taken to social media as followers are being encouraged to post selfies of themselves and their Bibles.

In 2 Kings 22, the people of Judah were without the Word of God for more than thirty years. Then there was a rediscovery of the Book of the Law. And as the people engaged the Word there was national repentance and revival. There is power in the Word of God to bring change in our nations. We pray to God that it will happen in this the Global Year of the Bible.

THE YEAR OF GOD’S GLORY

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, January 26, 2020

We welcome you to FEA, where we are overcoming through the power of the Word. We are happy to have you!

Concerns are being raised internationally about the well-being of an Iranian Christian convert who was arrested just last week. The Human Rights Activists News Agency first reported on the arrest of 21-year-old Christian convert Fatemeh Mohammadi, who prefers to go by the name “Mary” since her spiritual conversion. Mary was detained near Azadi Square in Tehran, where protests occurred after the Iranian military shot down a Ukranian passenger plane and killed 176 people. Although several people were arrested in connection with protests that took place in multiple cities, it is not clear whether Mary was involved in any of the protests. 

Article 18, a United Kingdom-based watchdog group that promotes religious freedom and tolerance for Christians in Iran, reports that Mary published a series of tweets on the day she was arrested, saying that the Iranian people faced “soft repression” in Iran as the regime creates “false beliefs through selective coverage of the news.” She reportedly used hash tags in her tweets that translate to English as “hard-pressed” and “suppression is the norm.” She reportedly accused the regime of spreading ”lies that are bigger and more repetitive to make them more believable.”

Iran Human Rights Watch reported on Sunday that even a week after Mary’s arrest the authorities have released no information on her whereabouts and her condition. This is not the first time that Mary has been detained by authorities in the Islamic Republic. She was arrested in 2017 during a raid on an underground house church meeting and was later sentenced to six months in prison. She served her time in the women’s ward of Iran’s notorious Evin prison. 

She wrote an open letter to Iran’s Minister of Intelligence Mahmoud Alavi last May accusing him of targeting Christians and violating the constitution. In her letter, she also questioned why Christian converts in Iran must refrain from talking about their faith in Iran, while Muslims are free to discuss their faith in public settings.  Johnnie Moore, an evangelical communications executive who serves on the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, tweeted his support for Mary, praying for God to protect her and “everyone subject to those in Iran who traffic in inhumanity and who wield injustice to preserve their own personal power.”

Let us also remember to pray for Mary, who at 21 years old is taking such a bold stand for the Lord in a society that is so brutal to Christians.  Pray for her protection and that God would give her all that she needs to be His light In the midst of that darkness.  Amen!

THE YEAR of GOD’S GLORY

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, January 19, 2020

We welcome you to FEA, where we are overcoming through the power of the Word. We are happy to have you!

 According to the Christian Post, Puerto Ricans have been praying under a massive cloud of uncertainty about the future since earthquakes began to affect the island. On Tuesday, January 7, a 6.4 magnitude earthquake left one person dead and significant damage to buildings. On one occasion as the people of Puerto Rico formed a massive prayer circle in Ponce and prayed, there was a rainbow in the skies above them. Earthquake aftershocks are causing damage and fear. Thousands are sleeping outdoors to avoid calamity. But there is a refusal by many to be mentally defeated and they possess a faith fuelled belief that this too will pass.

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) has highlighted the likely scenarios that could play out for the island over the next three weeks.  According to the agency, there is a 3% chance of an earthquake significantly larger than the Magnitude 6.4 that occurred on January 7. But it is felt that this is a very small probability. If such an earthquake were to occur anyhow, it would have serious impacts on communities nearby. This size earthquake would also trigger its own aftershock sequence, so the rate of small and moderate earthquakes would increase again.

The USGS noted that the most likely scenario they expect to unfold, based on the current seismic activity, is that aftershocks will continue to decrease in frequency and will be significantly lower in magnitude than the Magnitude 6.4. It was also noted that an earthquake occurring of similar size as the magnitude 6.4, could also occur in an event called a “doublet.” A doublet emerges when two large earthquakes of similar size occur closely in time and location. If this happens, additional damage as well as increased aftershocks would be likely.

“The earthquakes in these scenarios would occur in the areas where aftershocks are happening now. Earthquakes in this sequence will continue to occur for days, months, or potentially years to come. It is very unlikely the aftershocks will cease completely within the next month,” the USGS said.

Let us remember to pray for Puerto Rico that in the midst of this situation, the voice of God will be heard in the lives of the residents and that they will respond positively to His call. God uses these situations to get our attention. The Bible says,” And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.”(Luke 21:11). We are living in the last days.

THE YEAR OF GOD’S GLORY

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, January 12, 2020

We welcome you to FEA, where we are overcoming through the power of the Word. We are happy to have you!

It is only the second week in the new year and China has announced already that fromFebruary 1, 2020, it will be imposing harsh new measures for the purpose of governing religious groups. These measures will require all religious personnel to support and implement total submission to the Chinese Communist Party. Of course this is causing grave concern among Chinese Christians. According to Asia News, these new administrative rules will complete the Regulations on religious affairs which were revised two years ago and implemented on Feb. 1, 2018.

Under the new rules, every aspect of the life of religious communities, including formation, gatherings, annual and daily projects, is subject to approval by the government’s religious affairs department. In addition, all religious personnel are required to support, promote and implement total submission to the Chinese Communist Party among all members of their communities. Article 5 of these rules reads as follows: “Religious organizations must adhere to the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party, observe the constitution, laws, regulations, ordinances and policies, adhere to the principle of independence and self-government, adhere to the directives on religions in China, implementing the values ​​of socialism …”

The articles also make it abundantly clear that all religious organizations must spread the principles and policies of the Chinese Communist Party, as well as the national laws and regulations to their people. Religious organizations must educate their members to support the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party and support the socialist system, thus adhering to and following the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics. The law stipulates that without the approval of the religious affairs department of the people’s government, or registration with the civil affairs department of the people’s government, no activities can be carried out in the name of a religious group.

With these latest measures in place, the government will use them to further tighten the noose on religious groups. Persecution watchdog group, International Christians Concern, is issuing a warning to this end. We must, therefore, pray now even more than ever for our Christian brethren in China that God would give them the grace and strength they need to take a stand for Him in this difficult hour.

While many are busy predicting gloom and doom for 2020, a network of churches and ministry leaders are aiming to host the “largest Christian outreach” crusade in history. This is scheduled to take place in May across dozens of African countries in a movement that will culminate on Pentecost Sunday. This movement is called One God – One Day – One Africa (1GDA). The hope is to “blanket Africa with prayer.” 1GDA is a continental festival of unity, the scope of which has never been seen before, according to organizer Jennifer Wilde.

The crusade events will be organized by local churches, religious leaders and ministries in partnership with foreign ministries and leaders. The aim, Wilde said, is to have evangelistic crusade events held in as many African countries as possible. The organizers have partner ministries lined up to lead and organize crusade events in at least 30 African countries. But they are calling on churches around the world to help organize crusade rallies in the remaining countries. “It is amazing, all the unity that God is bringing about for One God – One Day – One Africa,” Wilde told The Christian Post. 

The rallies will feature local singers and preachers to best reach their local populations. They will be live-streamed and broadcast to millions, according to Wilde. Funding will be provided to organizers to take care of basic needs such as renting crusade grounds and buying sound equipment. 1GDA aims to send 10,000 local evangelists to villages and towns throughout Africa to bring the Good News to their neighbors. “It is not just one denomination,” Wilde said. “We are all one body and God has really put everyone together for this. This will be the largest Christian outreach actually in history in the world. There’s nothing like this that has really ever been done covering an entire continent, not just a country, but a continent with the Gospel of Jesus in one day.”

Wilde explained that she got the vision from God for the 1GDA celebration when she was a young Christian, but it had seemed impossible over three decades ago when there was no internet or cell phones. In recent times God spoke to her and said, “Now is the time to do this.” Partner organizations involved in this event include Christ for All Nations, the Christian Broadcasting Network, Iris Global, the Washington-based African Enterprise and the Maryland-based Jesus is Lord Crusades.

We thank God for those Kingdom people who are focusing on more positive and meaningful things for 2020 such as the expansion of God’s kingdom. May God’s blessing be upon this effort.  One more year brings us

Happy New Year

THE YEAR OF GOD’S GLORY

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?

OVERCOMER: Living a Life of Victory!

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.”

FROM THE HEART

OVERCOMER: Living a Life of Victory!

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!
