BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, JUNE 6, 2021

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

Israel has practically been in the headlines every day in recent weeks since the nation has been under attack. Hamas, an Iran-backed terrorist organization, fired thousands of rockets into Israel, striking population centers. If it were not for the Iron Dome defense system which stopped 90% of those rockets, the damage would have been far worse. But what is it about Israel, and specifically Jerusalem, that draws the focus and attention of the entire world? The answer is quite simple. Israel occupies center stage in God’s drama of the ages. Take a look at history, and you will see that it turns out badly for any nation that raises its hand against Israel or the Jewish people. Nations such as Egypt, Assyria, Babylon and Rome, have turned against Israel and paid a price.

Jerusalem became the capital of Israel under King David and was actually known as the City of David. It was in Jerusalem that the first and second temples were built. Also, it was in Jerusalem at Mount Moriah, which is the area we know today as the Temple Mount, that Abraham went to offer his son Isaac to God. After the modern state of Israel was declared in 1948, a war of independence left Jerusalem divided, with Jordan maintaining control over the Old City, including the Temple Mount and most of the historic sites.

That is why the Bible tells us to pay attention to Jerusalem. Jesus said, “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near” (Luke 21:20). Speaking through the prophet Zechariah, God said, “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples” (Zech. 12:2–3).

Today we have leaders like the president of Iran who frequently speak of wiping Israel off the map. You might dismiss this as ridiculous, but they are currently developing nuclear weapons in Iran. Therefore, Israel is in a very difficult situation, and they take these threats seriously. The Bible tells us that the final conflict of humanity will be fought over Jerusalem. It speaks of a large force, known as Magog, from the extreme north of Israel attacking her. Russia sits to the extreme north of Israel. So is Russia Magog? And it is very clear in pointing out that this will happen in the last days.  But while no one can say with absolute certainty that Magog is Russia, this much we know: a force known as Magog from the north of Israel will attack her. And when they attack, God will step in and save Israel.

In the meantime, we need to be alert. We need to be awakened to the fact that Jesus Christ is returning to the earth very soon. In addition, we need to be praying for the peace of Jerusalem more than ever before, as the Word of God instructs us to do. Always remember this, the most important person in our lives was a Jew, the most important book in our lives was written by Jews, and the most important organization in our lives – the church — began with Jews. Amen!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, MAY 30, 2021

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

A young girl who wanted to wear her faith on her mask never expected it to be a problem at school. But that is just what happened.  School officials told Lydia Booth that she could not wear her mask because of a school policy that forbad the wearing of masks on the school premises that carried political or religious messages. However, Lydia’s mother, Jennifer, checked the handbook and dress code and didn’t find any such restriction. The Booth family, therefore, reached out to Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) for help. As a result they eventually filed a lawsuit against the school district.

Lydia Booth told the ADF that she simply liked wearing the mask to show her faith in Jesus. She also said, “It makes me feel like I’m protected by Jesus.” She says she believed others would “think it’s a great mask, and that Jesus is a great God, and a great Savior.” She also discovered that masks with sports logos and other messages like “Black Lives Matter” were allowed.

The ADF reminded the school system that they cannot pick and choose which messages students are allowed to express and which they are not allowed to express. Furthermore the ADF made it abundantly clear to the school that they surely cannot single out religious speech for worse treatment than other types of speech.

However, in spite of this, God is using Lydia’s struggle to touch the lives of other children, prompting reactions from her schoolmates. One of Lydia’s classmates saw her mask and wanted one just like it. Another friend’s older sister, after hearing about the case, decided to read the entire Bible. And according to ADF reports, two other sisters sent Lydia “heartwarming and encouraging notes.” One read as follows, “Lydia, I am praying for you. I am so glad that God sent His Son to die for us. I know that God is using you to tell others about Jesus. I know how you feel. …I know God sees our troubles and I know God will answer your prayers soon. God bless you.”

We thank God for the powerful witness that this young girl, Lydia, has become for Jesus in her school. Let us pray that the youth of our nation would rise up from every quarter and take their stand for the Lord in our schools and everywhere else. The Word of God says, “Remember your Creator in the days of your youth…” (Eccl. 12:1). Amen!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, MAY 23, 2021

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

On Tuesday, May 11, American Bible Society (ABS) released the first two chapters of its 11th annual State of the Bible report, documenting cultural trends in the realm of spirituality and Scripture engagement in the United States. According to the report, over an estimated 10 million more Americans turned to the Bible in 2020 than in years past, as one in four adults reported reading the Bible more frequently during the pandemic compared to last year.  The data also suggests that over 181 million Americans opened a Bible in the past year compared to 169 million adults who used a Bible at least occasionally in the previous year. The findings for the report are based on a survey conducted in January 2021.

The study also found that roughly 16% of American adults read the Bible most days during the week, up from 12% in its 2020 report. Thirty-four percent said they read the Bible once a week or more, while 50% said they read the Bible less than twice per year.  The report further states that 63% of respondents reported their Bible usage was the same as the previous year. Although 9% said their Bible engagement decreased in the last year, 24% reported more frequent Bible reading during that time. The nine chapters from the report will be released throughout the year.

In an interview with The Christian Post, John Farquhar Plake, the director of ministry intelligence for the American Bible Society, said he believes Americans turned to God’s Word during the pandemic in search of meaning and comfort. “I think the data tells us that when people are at change points in their life, [and] they’re enduring stresses like we all have during the COVID-19 pandemic, we look for meaning and we look for comfort,” he said.”

The report also showed a decrease of people classified in the “Bible Disengaged” category as well as a “significant” increase of 95 million American adults in the “Movable Middle” category of those who are exploring Scripture, sometimes for the first time. ABS will release the following seven chapters of the State of the Bible between June and December this year.

We thank God for the positive reflection in the ABS 2021 State of the Bible report. As individuals ask questions regarding how to cope in these times, we are glad that the Word of God has the answer. This, no doubt, is the reason why individuals are turning to the Scriptures for their answers. Let us pray that as people continue to consult the Bible, God would cause His voice to be heard in their hearts and they would respond to Him positively. Amen!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, MAY 16, 2021

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

During the COVID-19 pandemic, 100,000 Bibles were given to prisoners by the nation’s leading Christian prison ministry amid heightened demand for God’s Word. In a recent interview with The Christian Post, James Ackerman, the CEO of Prison Fellowship, noted that there was a “sense of hopelessness” in prisons throughout the pandemic. Ackerman shared that there was an intense level of demand for the Gospel inside prisons, for the first time in Prison Fellowship’s 45-year history. “God put on people’s hearts and encouraged chaplains to promote the Word of God,” he noted. “And [the fact] that hope of the Gospel found itself in such high demand is so encouraging to me.”

In response, Prison Fellowship has managed to distribute 100,000 copies of The Life Recovery Bible, Tyndale’s bestselling recovery Bible, in nine months. The Life Recovery Bible, which is under the New Living Translation, features unique devotional content based on the 12-step recovery model. According to Tyndale’s website, “This Bible for addiction points to God himself as the primary source of recovery with essential tools and features that help free people from the grip of addiction.” Ackerman added that the Bible provides prisoners with the opportunity to start a new life with Jesus Christ. He said that the aim is for people who have struggled with addiction and other unproductive activities in their lives, to realize that they can be healed from that addiction, and that Jesus wants to deliver them.

 While many correctional facilities were concerned that the pandemic would agitate prisoners, the Prison Fellowship president pointed out that the opposite effect took place through these Bibles. Ackerman explained that The Life Recovery Bible has helped inmates stay calm, strengthening the faith of those who were already believers and encouraging non-believers to read and study the Word of God. He further stated how God provided them with all they needed to meet the demand to supply those 100,000 Bibles. Over 3 million copies of The Life Recovery Bible have been printed. They are available in English and Spanish in large print. Since partnering with Tyndale in 2018, Prison Fellowship has distributed over 162,000 Bibles to men and women in prison.

We praise God for this remarkable work that is being done by the Prison Fellowship in the interest of the inmates. The Bible says that God “wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth” (1Tim. 2:4). This includes those who are imprisoned. Because only God’s truth can set them free from the things that have caused them to be imprisoned. So let us remember to pray for the Prison Fellowship and other prison ministries along with prisoners everywhere. Amen!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, MAY 09, 2021

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

According to the Christian Post, One of the largest cities in Texas has now become the most populous city in the country thus far to outlaw abortion within the city’s limits and become a “sanctuary city for the unborn.” In a referendum on Saturday, May 1, a supermajority of voters in the city of Lubbock, Texas, voted to approve an ordinance that makes it unlawful for any person to procure or perform an abortion of any type and at any stage of pregnancy in that City. More than 62% of voters in the city of more than 250, 000 residents voted to approve the referendum. Mark Lee Dickson, an East Texas pastor, who is the founder of a movement called, Sanctuary Cities for the Unborn, cheered Saturday’s landslide victory for the pro-life movement.

Pastor Dickson said that Planned Parenthood came to Lubbock and started performing abortions on April 15. He also pointed out how they poured lots of money into the election. They pushed a campaign to prevent the ordinance from being passed. But they were still unsuccessful. The people of Lubbock have spoken. The act permits family members of someone who gets an abortion to sue the provider and anyone who assists in the abortion, including, for example, driving someone to the clinic to have the procedure done. However, under the measure, an act does not qualify as an abortion if it is carried out to save the life of the mother, remove a fetus whose death was the result of a miscarriage or remove an ectopic pregnancy. Conservative state lawmakers and other anti-abortion activists congratulated Lubbock voters for their decision. “Today is a victory for life and proof that the silent majority will still stand up for its Christian conservative values,” Republican state Rep. Dustin Burrows said in a statement.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Texas, (ACLU), which has sued seven other towns in Texas that passed similar measures, hinted at a lawsuit in a statement. But Pastor Dickson pointed out that In May 2020, the ACLU sued seven cities that passed sanctuary for the unborn ordinances. However, after three months, the ACLU withdrew their lawsuits and abortion remains outlawed in every city that was sued. 

We commend the city of Lubbock for the stand which they are taking against abortion. The Bible makes it abundantly clear, “Thou shalt not kill.” (Ex. 20:13). God told Jeremiah “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” (Jer. 1:5). Every abortion is the murder of a human life and the judgment of God will surely follow. May God’s blessing be on the city of Lubbock and upon all you mothers who followed through and give birth to your children. Amen! Happy Mother’s Day

A MOTHER INDEED
Second Kings Chapter number four
A mother cried to the prophet for two sons she bore
Her husband’s death brought the creditor’s hand
To take her children upon demand.

The man was right according to law
But the woman was struck at what she saw
“All debts must be paid for your sons to be free
Remember your husband was indebted to me”.

The Prophet asked a question ‘Lady what have you?’
“A little oil in a bottle,” and that was true
He sent her to neighbors some vessels to borrow
Then to her house his instructions to follow.

So she did as he said her two sons beside her
Pouring out the oil in each empty container
She filled up the last she had of them all
There was now not a vessel on which to call.

She came to the prophet surprised at her blessing
He said “Sell the oil and pay those you’re owing
You and your sons can live on the rest
You’re a mother indeed; you’ve done your best”.
(Apostle Dr. B. Edghill)

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, MAY 02, 2021

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

On Thursday April 22, Indiana Governor, Eric Holcomb, signed SB 263 into law. This bill ensures that churches and other religious organizations are allowed to remain open during a state of emergency, on the same terms as other businesses and services. It labels churches and religious organizations as “essential services”. As a result, the state will now be restricted regarding the limits it can impose on churches during an emergency. Governor Holcomb signed the bill into law less than one month after it was passed. The bill was passed in the state Senate, 36 -10, and the state House, 74-20. The sponsors of the bill said it is needed to protect churches during any future emergencies similar or even worse than the Covid-19 pandemic, which led to local and state governments shuttering churches.

Part of the text of the bill reads as follows, “Religious organizations provide essential services that are necessary for the health and welfare of the public during a disaster emergency.” The bill goes on to point out that the state and its “political subdivision” may not impose restrictions on churches and religious organizations that are “more restrictive than the restrictions imposed on other businesses and organizations that provide essential services to the public.” The new law specifically allows the state to order a “religious organization to comply with a generally applicable health, safety, or occupancy requirement,” but it must be “neutral towards religious organizations and equally applicable to any organization or business that provides essential services.”

It is also important to note that this new Indiana law includes a section allowing individuals to sue the state if they believe their religious liberty rights have been violated.  The Alliance Defending Freedom, a legal organization which specializes in religious liberty cases, has applauded the new law. Greg Chafuen, ADF legal counsel said, “Houses of worship and religious organizations provide soul-sustaining operations that are essential to our society and protected by the First Amendment. While public officials have the authority and responsibility to protect public health and safety, the Supreme Court has made clear that the First Amendment ‘cannot be put away and forgotten’ even in a pandemic. This means that the government can’t treat churches worse than shopping centers, restaurants, or gyms without violating the Constitution. We commend Gov. Holcomb and the Indiana Legislature for making it clear that officials cannot use a public crisis to discriminate against religious operations.”

Since this pandemic, many churches throughout our nation have suffered immensely because of the unreasonable restrictions which governors and mayors have imposed upon them. We thank God for the stand which Indiana is taking in the interest of the church. May God bless that state abundantly and may other states learn from them. Amen!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, April 25, 2021

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

A wedding photographer in New York is fighting the state’s “non-discrimination” law. She alleges that it violates her right to express her religious freedom and beliefs. According to the Christian Post, in a lawsuit profiled in the Washington Free Beacon, Emilee Carpenter is taking Governor Andrew Cuomo and his administration to court because they are threatening her with fines and jail time for her belief that marriage is the union of a man and a woman.  The complaint alleges that the state is requiring Carpenter to violate her beliefs about traditional marriage, by forcing her to publicize photos of same-sex weddings on her website. The laws require her to create photograph collections on her website celebrating same-sex weddings because she celebrates opposite-sex weddings. Violating the laws could result in tens of thousands of dollars in fines, the state taking away her business license, or even jail time.

Carpenter stated in the report, “My faith has been really integral to me as a person, but also to my business and the way I operate it and the artwork I create. My faith is really the lens through which I view my art.” The state is also prohibiting Carpenter from making any statement explaining that her business activities are restricted by her religious beliefs. The case alleges that the state’s anti-discrimination laws are violating Carpenter’s First Amendment rights.

The lawsuit points out that the laws do not simply dictate what Carpenter does; they dictate what she says. Carpenter is already willing to work with clients no matter who they are, her attorney says.  But not satisfied with equal treatment, New York officials demand ideological purity. They want Carpenter to violate her conscience by professing the state’s approved view about marriage.

Jonathan Scruggs, Carpenter’s attorney highlighted the fact that, ever since American courts handed “rights” to LGBT activists, this issue has been conflicting with First Amendment’s protections for religious rights. But other recent court decisions have recognized religious rights. Among them are the Supreme Court’s ruling in the case of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Colorado, a decision involving a video company in Minnesota and a ruling in Arizona’s courts regarding a calligraphy company.

Emilee Carpenter is to be admired for the bold stand which she is taking in the interest of God’s kingdom. The Bible says, “…He who made them at the beginning made them male and female. For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife.” (Mt. 19:4-5). Homosexuality has no place in God’s plan. Let us pray for Emilee Carpenter that God would be her defence.

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

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, and Focus on the Family has launched its “Prevention with Purpose” campaign to help communities protect children by preventing abuse. Sharen Ford, director of foster care and adoption for Focus on the Family, emphasized the importance of reporting any sign of suspected abuse and neglect, especially as some children are returning to school for the first time since the pandemic lockdowns began. “Our Prevention with Purpose campaign is about helping everyone to know that their eyes and ears matter in the life of a child,” Ford told CP in an interview recently. “If you see something that is suspicious, please call and report it. If you hear something that concerns you, a conversation that young children are having or older children, and it sounds suspicious, please pick up the phone and report it.” The key, she stressed is prevention, which is why it’s the theme of this year’s campaign.

Two million children received abuse prevention services in 2019, according to the Department of Health and Human Services Children’s Bureau Child Maltreatment Report, which also found that 1,840 children died from abuse or neglect that same year. Some of the teachers haven’t seen the children except on a Zoom classroom meeting, but now the children are being gradually reintegrated to the classroom. Teachers, staff and everyone else must keep a keen eye on our children, observing any signs of abuse or neglect. Sharen Forde is convinced that risk factors for child abuse have all become more prevalent across the United States after businesses were shuttered last March and families lost their sources of income and were ordered to quarantine at home for months. 

 “It is not your responsibility to do the investigation,” said Forde, “but it’s your opportunity to step into the life of a child and maybe save them from abuse that’s going on, or also to give services to a family who might be struggling and need resources or help so that abuse can be stopped.” Churches can also have an active role in prevention, she said, by serving their communities. She is convinced that, “If every church did a little bit, every family in the community would know that there is somewhere safe that I can go and connect with. When we meet temporal needs in the community, we can eventually meet their spiritual needs.

 If we could prevent more abuse of children, we would have fewer children going into the foster care system and being impacted by trauma. “The family is the fabric and the bedrock of the society.  If the church can be there to serve the family at their initial point of need, hopefully, we can prevent many children from plunging into chaos.  Let us do our part in Jesus’s name. He said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven” (Mt. 19:14).

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, April 11, 2021

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

According to the Christian Post, a new report from the Napa Legal Institute has revealed the full extent of big-tech censorship of Christians. It details the growing attitude of hostility towards faith-based views and organizations by large tech companies, and urges “decisive” actions by faith leaders to confront this new culture. The report alleges that since the beginning of the year, religious organizations and individuals have been censored on social media at a rate of roughly once a week. While many of these actions have gone relatively unnoticed, some have risen to the status of national news. Among them was Amazon’s removal of Ryan T. Anderson’s book When Harry Became Sally.  This book challenged progressive orthodoxy on transgender issues. Amazon deleted the book from its catalogue and refused to reverse the decision, despite widespread backlash by conservatives and Christians. They later doubled down on the ban, saying that they have “chosen not to sell books that frame LGBTQ+ identity as a mental illness.”

In practice, that standard gives Amazon a blanket justification to censor any content that presents the traditional Christian view of gender and sex. Whether or not they follow through on their new policy, the existence of such a policy puts any faith-based publisher or author in a position of suspicion, especially if they write against LGBT issues. This new policy is particularly concerning for Christians given Amazon’s control of the publishing market. The report also shows that the censorship culture extends far beyond Amazon. In February, Twitter suspended the account of Catholic bishop, Kevin Doran, after he attacked the practice of assisted suicide. His account was eventually restored after a month. But others have suffered permanent consequences. LifeSiteNews, a pro-life news outlet, had their You Tube account permanently banned, removing their catalogue of over 2000 videos. Other Christian groups have also been targeted.

Many of the cases tracked by the Napa Legal Institute resulted in permanent suspensions, but in some cases the results were reversed. Though censorship may be increasing, many Christians are actively fighting back and, in some cases, winning. The Napa Legal Institute states that “Big Tech’s unpredictable de-platforming of faith-based organizations and their leaders has become so frequent that faith-based organizations can no longer rely on continuous service from these companies, particularly social media providers.

As Christians, we should not be alarmed at the ongoing opposition to Christian views and the Christian message. Jesus said, “If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.” (Jn. 15:19). We must, therefore, pray for God to give His people the wisdom and guidance to surmount these barriers and get His message out. Amen!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, April 04, 2021

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

According to recent reports from the U.S.-based advocacy organization, International Christian Concern, communist authorities in China have removed all the belongings of a house church in China’s Chongqing municipality. Just days earlier during the Sunday worship service the authorities raided the same house church, sent the members home and sealed the church. More than 30 officials, including local police, came with trucks and took away all the belongings, including chairs and books, at Mount Olive Church last Wednesday. Pastor Zhu Dong and several leaders were said to have been brought to the police station.

China Aid suspects that the recent crackdown against house churches, which targets reformed churches in particular, could be a move in celebration of the upcoming 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party. The Chinese government also continued its campaign against Christianity during the country’s coronavirus outbreak by destroying crosses and demolishing a church while people were on lockdown. On February 28, authorities raided the Chongqing Living Fountain Church during one of its Sunday services and arrested two Christians, one of whom preached that day. According to China Aid, officers confiscated a computer belonging to the church and told those attending the service not to come on the church grounds again because the church is not registered and that there is the potential risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus.

Open Doors USA, which monitors persecution in over 60 countries, estimates that there are about 97 million Christians in China, a large percentage of whom worship in what China considers to be “illegal” and unregistered underground house churches. China is ranked as the 17th worst country in the world when it comes to the persecution of Christians, according to Open Doors USA’s 2021 World Watch List. Earlier this year, the U.S. State Department declared the Chinese government’s treatment and mass detainment of Uighur and other ethnic groups in Western China to be genocide. Researchers found that China continued to have “the highest score on the Government Restrictions Index out of all 198 countries and territories in the study.”

At this time of the year when we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, our brethren in China can be reminded that our Lord and Savior is not dead but alive and alive forever. He is creator, and at His name every knee will bow. By so doing, they can console themselves in the fact that the devil is a defeated foe. Jesus said, “…I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” (Mt. 16:18). Let us continue to pray for our brethren in China that they may be reminded of this truth at this time and continue to take their stand for the Lord. Amen!

HAPPY RESURECTION DAY!
