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
