THE FELLOWSHIP OF PRAYER: A PORTION OF THE SUNDAY MORNING HOUR IS DEVOTED TO PRAYER. THE LORD'S PEOPLE NEED TO MEET TOGETHER TO PRAY....IT IS SCRIPTURAL...IT IS NEEDED...WE CAN SHARE EACH OTHERS NEEDS BEFORE THE LORD.
THE LORD HEARS AND ANSWERS PRAYER: "THEREFORE, HE HAD TO BE MADE LIKE HIS BRETHREN IN ALL THINGS, THAT HE MIGHT BECOME A MERCIFUL AND FAITHFUL HIGH PRIEST IN THINGS PERTAINING TO GOD...SINCE HE HIMSELF WAS TEMPTED IN THAT WHICH HE HAS SUFFERED, HE IS ABLE TO COME TO THE AID OF THOSE WHO ARE TEMPTED. HEBREWS 2:17,18
SPECIAL PRAYER REQUEST: BRO.ANDREW BRUNSON IN PRISON IN TURKEY FOR THE GOSPEL'S SAKE. May 7th is slated for the continuation of his trial. Andrew has been moved to another prison.
Pray for the "Masterpiece Cake Shop" case and its owner Jack Phillips of Lakewood. His religious freedom for artistic expression case will argued before the Supreme Court of the United States on December 5. The decision will come down sometime before the end of the Court's term in June.
When James Madison was framing the Bill of Rights to the U S Constitution, specifically Amendment I, he wrote "...all men are equally entitled to the full and free exercise of religion according to the dictates of his conscience", thus meaning that religious liberty was an "inalienable right alongside life, liberty and property."
With this background and armed with the Bill of Rights, the only question is, does that right extend into personal decisions of conduct; that is, does my religion inform my choices, actions, and business. Any other interpretation seems to restrict religious practice to Sunday morning. Our faith should inform and guide our personal decisions or it is worthless.
A NEW FELLOWSHIP AT SOUTHWEST BIBLE CHAPEL IN THE WILL OF THE LORD. THE ASSEMBLY OF CHRISTIANS WHO HAVE MET AT S.AMES AND W. FLORIDA SINCE 1962, HAS INVITED THE LEADERHIP OF LITTLETON BIBLE CHAPEL TO DEVELOP A PLAN TO "HIVE-OFF" A NUCLEUS OF LBC BELIEVERS WHO LIVE ON THE WEST AND SOUTHWEST SIDE OF THE METROPLEX TO THE SWBC CAMPUS. AS A FIRST STEP, 4 LBC ELDERS HAVE BEEN ELECTED TO THE SWBC BOARD OF TRUSTEES. BOTH GROUPS HAVE SENSED THE LORD'S LEADING AND WE ARE ALL PATIENTLY WAITING ON THE LORD FOR HIS TIMING. PRAY WITH US FOR THE LORD'S WILL TO BE DONE. WE ARE THANKFUL HE IS LEADING US, AND EXCITED FOR WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS BECAUSE WE KNOW WHO HOLDS THE FUTURE." LATEST REPORT IS TO BEGIN WITH A 'SOFT LAUNCH' THIS SUMMER, WITH A FORMAL COMMISSION IN THE FALL OF THIS YEAR. WE PRAY THE LORD WILL ENABLE IN ALL THEIR PLAN.
HERE'S A CHALLENGE FOR THIS MONTH:
When all God's plan of redemption for humanity and creation is complete, "He Who sits on the throne said, 'It is done, I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost". Remember that Jesus said to the Samaritan woman at Sychar's well, "...the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.' (John 4:14).
"But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death." And when the New Jerusalem is described in verse 27, He says, "...nothing unclean and no one who practices abomination and lying, shall ever come into it, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life."
"Lord, I care not for riches, neither silver nor gold;
I would make sure of heaven, I would enter the fold.
In the book of Thy kingdom, with its pages so fair,
Tell me, Jesus, my Savior, is my name written there?
Lord, my sins they are many, like the sands of the sea,
But Thy blood, O my Savior, is sufficient for me;
For Thy promise is written, in bright letters that glow,
"Though your sins be as scarlet, I will make them like snow."
Oh! that beautiful city, with its mansions of light,
With its glorified beings, in pure garments of white;
Where no evil thing cometh to despoil what is fair;
Where the angels are watching, Yes, my name's written there.
Is my name written there? on the page white and fair?
In the book of Thy kingdom, Yes, my name's written there!
(M.A.K.#116 in Choice \Hymns of the Faith)
