Beloved in the Lord Feedback is very important because it encourages the believers when they see or hear about the mighty work of their God. And though we know that God is always at work, it is something special to hear from our brothers and sisters about what He was doing in their lives. It is also important to see Jesus glorified; all what the Holy Spirit does is to do just that. When you inform us about what the Lord did in your life, then OTHERS could rejoice with you…and glorify our Lord. We encourage you to let us know about what was happening in your life and how the Lord touched or spoken to you. If you experience Jesus, let others know about it!
# October, 31st we remember the Reformation
Today Sunday October, 31st in remembrance of the onset of the Reformation we must remember what the Word of God says concerning Grace “Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved)… For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God“ Ephesian 2:5; 8 .
As known to you October, 31st1517 was the day the German monk, and professor of moral theology at the University of Wittenberg, Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-five Theses/grievances on the door of the All Saints' Church in Wittenberg, Electorate of Saxony in the Holy Roman Empire.
As a Ministry, but also as CB Church we celebrate All Saints Day and remember those who were martyred because of their faith in Jesus. It is significant to noticed that Martin nailed his Theses on the door of the All Saints' Church!
Historians and other experts on the subject argue that Luther may have chosen All Hallows' Eve on purpose to get the attention of common people, although that has never been proven.
It is historically confirmed that Martin Luther wrote to Albrecht, Archbishop of Mainz and Magdeburg, on October, 31st 1517 protesting against the sale of indulgences. He enclosed in his letter a copy of his "Disputation of Martin Luther on the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences", which came to be known as the Ninety-five Theses.
Martin Luther objected to a saying attributed to Johann Tetzel that "As soon as the coin in the coffer rings, the soul from purgatory (also attested as 'into heaven') springs" He insisted that, since forgiveness was God's alone to grant, those who claimed that indulgences absolved buyers from all punishments and granted them salvation were in error. Christians, he said, must not slacken in following Christ on account of such false assurances.
We pray that believers in Jesus Christ will remember what the Bible says, that HE, Jesus Christ, the Saviour was the One Who paid the price for our salvation and that NO AMOUNT OF MONEY in the world can buy you salvation. We want to remember and learn lessons from the past, without judging others, but encourage believers to read, keep and live the Word of God.
# We Remember September, 11
No matter how we try to avoid THAT day, it comes again challenging us, thus today Saturday September, 11 we want to share this with you:
The day was normal as any other day; the sky was blue and everything was running as people used to when the evil hand of Islam stroke the ‘Great Satan’—after that the whole world was radically and irreversibly changed.
Islamic Jihad reached the United States of America, hitting it where it hurts: Four well-planned and coordinated terrorist attacks by the militant Islamist terrorist group Al-Qaeda were executed on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001 at 8:46 am.
In the Holy Bible, the Word of God, we read what the Lord Jesus said:“ The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy…” John 10:10a – and that is exactly what the enemy did!
Did the Americans learn their lesson? Unfortunately, so it seems, NO…” – today, 20 years later…we say the same – America did NOT learnt, and it seems it is not willing to learn. After the disastrous ‘withdrawal’ from Afghanistan, and abandoning American citizens there, we wonder what will happen next.
WE REMEMBER…and want you to REMEMBER and to pray too – our Lord is the Giver of Life “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” John 10:10b – May the Lord stretch His strong arm, touch and heal the land.
# Remembering Master Jan Hus
Today, Tuesday July, 6th we are remembering the martyrdom of Jan Hus, a Czech theologian and philosopher, who became a Church reformer and the inspiration of Hussitism, a key predecessor to Protestantism and a seminal figure in the Bohemian Reformation. He was born on July, 6th 1372 and was burned alive. In some historical texts he was referred to as Iohannes Hus or Johannes Huss. At the Charles University in Prague Jan Hus was a master, dean, and rector and is considered to be the second Church reformer after John Wycliffe, the theorist of Ecclesiastical Reform, as he lived before Martin Luther, Calvin and Zwingli. His teachings had a strong influence on the states of Western Europe, most immediately in the approval of a reformed Bohemian religious denomination and, over a century later, on Martin Luther.
An eyewitness, Peter from Mlado, said “He (Jan Hus) came to the scaffold and knelt, removed his hands and raised his eyes to the sky, praying. He rose up at the command of the verdict from the place of prayer. In a strong and understandable voice he said: ‘Lord Jesus Christ, this horrible, humbling and cruel death for your gospel and preaching your word I want to suffer very patiently and humbly’.
Then they stripped his dress and tied him to the pillar with ropes, with his hands backwards to the said pillar. When they tied him to his neck with a chain, he looked and said to the truth: ‘Lord Jesus Christ, my Redeemer and Savior, heavier and heavier chain was bound and I am miserable not ashamed of your name’ Under the master's feet, two bundles and wood were put under the fire. The one, still tied to the pillar, had his shoes and one bond on his feet. The said then bundles of wood mixed with straw lined around his bodies and standing up to the chin; the wood was two carts…”.
We can continue about the martyrdom of master Jan Hus, but DO WE REMEMBER those who were willing to sacrifice their lives for the sake of the Gospel?! July, 6th 1415 should be remembered NOT only because master Jan Hus was burned alive but because the Gospel of Christ was preached differently!
# Independence Day – July, 4th
Americans are facing terrible times, I believe the worst in their history and today Sunday July, 4th had to be remembered for one and only one reason: FREEDOM.
The freedom the American people fought for, with all their races, colours and background, is DIFFERENT from the ‘freedom’ abused today by MANY, especially those who are Americans by name, but enemies of America and its freedom by deeds.
July, 4th is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the Declaration of Independence of the United States, on July 4, 1776. The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies were no longer subject (and subordinate) to the monarch of Britain, King George III, and were now united, free, and independent states. The Congress had voted to declare independence two days earlier, on July 2, but it was not declared until July, 4th .
In these ‘modern’ times Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, political speeches, and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States.
But it is MORE than that, which should be remembered though SOME, claiming to be wise, are trying to erase from the memory of the current and future generations!
It is interesting to hear what John Adams had written to his wife Abigail a day earlier: “The second day of July 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more” – we believe exactly THAT happened since that great day!
We wish that every American should remember these word “It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty”—if they don’t do, the same Almighty God will let them reap what they sow.
It is NOT true that racism is dividing the United States, because those who wanted, and fought for Independence declared “After voting for independence, Congress turned its attention to the Declaration of Independence, a statement explaining this decision, which had been prepared by a Committee of Five, with Thomas Jefferson as its principal author. Congress debated and revised the wording of the Declaration to remove its vigorous denunciation of the slave trade, finally approving it two days later on July 4. Jefferson had written the following grievance in the indictment against King George III…” YES, they were AGAINST slavery and declared ALL are equal before the Law.
Independence Day is the national day of the United States and EVERY national/citizen should celebrate it, NOT to change history, but to learn from it. Those who forget their past, will have no future. May God bless America, and may God Almighty send FIRE on His people to repent, ask for forgiveness and call Him, the Saviour, to come back in their lives.
# ISIS and the fall of Mousel- 7th Anniversary
Terrible things are happening in the world and fear is filling the hearts of millions of people worldwide; it is not only the so-called Pandemic. There are worse things than a Virus and that includes a poisonous ideology/doctrine that encourages some to KILL innocent people ONLY because they don’t have the same religion!
Today Thursday June, 10th we are remembering what happened to thousands of believers in Mousel, Iraq and later in other cities and town and want to remind every believer, and the world too. Such massacre should NOT be forgotten, otherwise the world will be heading to its final destruction. We know what the Scripture says “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” John 16:33 and we rejoice because of Word of God is confirmed. Still we MUST stand with the TRUTH, because thousands of people were slaughtered, many, including children were crucified and women, including little girls, were taken as Sex Slaves!
Please REMEMBER and pray for the victims of ISIS and claim comfort for them from the only One true and Living God; may He heal their wounds. Amen.
# The Holy City of Jerusalem
If you know something about the history of the Middle East, then
The Six Day War on June, 7th 1967 must mean something to you.
Today Monday June, 7th we wanted to remind you: There was a planned attack against Israel, but those who planned it did not expect what Israel could do. The Israeli soldiers managed to attack those surrounding their country, advanced very fast and even captured Jerusalem's old town and fought their way to the wall of the West Wall. It was the reunion of Jerusalem.
′′ This morning, the Israeli military freed Jerusalem. We reunited Jerusalem, the divided capital of Israel. We have come back to the holiest of our sacred places to never part with him again " declared the then Minister of Defense Mosche Dayan, and also promised the Christian and Muslim citizens full religious freedom and the protection of their sacred sites. We encourage you to pray that the will of God be done in Israel and the whole Middle East, before the Second Coming of Christ.
# Did you notice it is Pentecost?!
We all still remember very well that glorious Resurrection Sunday, though it seems faraway now; today Sunday May, 23rd. I have no doubt that those few days were a blur of activity around your house or the Church you call home. Certainly, meals were prepared, Eggs hidden and Children’s classrooms already prepared as well as sermons, which were finished and preached. I want also to remember the ‘Last Minute’ details and preparations for the many events that were unfolded on that Sunday, including worship, praises and more.
I want to encourage you to take some time today and this weekend to slow down, lean in, and focus on what happened over two thousand years ago in the city of Jerusalem, and what it means for you and me today. Refuse to allow anything to get in the way of Jesus being the reason and focal point for everything that happened and focus on Pentecost and the great impact it had on the birth and growth of the Church. Hear what the Angels told those present when Jesus was taken up in front of their own eyes “And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel. Which also said ‘Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven’” Acts 1:10-11
It is time to be still, think of what is happening in our world, and remember: The Master is coming back SOON; are you ready? It will be a DIFFERENT Pentecost… Heaven is open, the Holy Spirit poured down on man...Glory to God
# Do you remember the Day?!
Knowing your history is vital and today Friday May, 14th we want to remind you that 73 years ago on May 14, 1948, in Tel Aviv, Jewish Agency Chairman David Ben-Gurion proclaims the State of Israel, establishing the first Jewish State in 2,000 years. As it is known Ben-Gurion became Israel’s first premier.
The rumble of guns could be heard in the distance from fighting that broke out between Jews and Arabs immediately following the British army withdrawal earlier that day. Egypt launched an air assault against Israel that evening and despite a blackout in Tel Aviv—and the expected Arab invasion—Jews joyously celebrated the birth of their new nation, especially after word was received that the United States had recognized the Jewish state. At midnight, the State of Israel officially came into being upon termination of the British mandate in Palestine.
# The Feast of the Ascension
It is Thursday May, 13th and all believers worldwide are remembering The Ascension of Jesus Christ to heaven, as described in the Book of Acts 1:8-9
“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. And when He had spoken these things, while they beheld, He was taken up; and a cloud received Him out of their sight”
This truth is fundamental in our faith and though it might be called Ascension Day, Ascension Thursday, or sometimes Holy Thursday, it commemorates the Christian belief of the bodily Ascension of the Lord Jesus into heaven. It is one of the Ecumenical (i.e., universally celebrated) feasts of Christian Churches of all denominations, ranking with the feasts of the Passion, of Resurrection Day or Easter, and Pentecost. According Scripture the risen Christ appeared for 40 days prior to His Ascension “To whom also He shewed Himself alive after His passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God” Acts 1:3
Ascension Day is traditionally celebrated on a Thursday, the fortieth day of Easter; although some Christian denominations have moved the observance to the following Sunday. The observance of this feast is of great antiquity. Eusebius seems to hint at the celebration of it in the 4th century. At the beginning of the 5th century, St. Augustine says that it is of Apostolic origin, and he speaks of it in a way that shows it was the universal observance of the Church long before his time. Frequent mention of it is made in the writings of St. John Chrysostom, St. Gregory of Nyssa, and in the Constitution of the Apostles.
We want to encourage you to remember/observe this day because it reminds us that “…the one who ascended must have descended first…” – that He is from Heavenly Origin. May the Lord give us wisdom to understand His Word, be guided by the Holy Spirit and be good witnesses on earth before joining our Lord HOME.
# November, 3rd Election
--A View --
Dears and beloved in the Lord,
It took us nearly half a year to come back to you and send such a message concerning the November, 3rd 2020 ‘election’ in the United States. When we were contacting our Teams Members, partners home and abroad and others concerning this matter, many leaders, dear friends and brothers/sisters in the Lord asked us this question “Is it necessary to send such a message at such a time…isn’t it late?”
We ALWAYS pray before coming back to you; we learnt over the years to pray and wait; I believe it was worth it to wait, because what the Lord showed us THEN, before the Election, was confirmed during the ‘First 100 Days in Office’!
It is bitter to go back and try to remember WHAT was happening in the United States AND the World since the beginning of 2020. The matter with the so-called Corona Virus, which was later, designated as ‘Pandemic’ WAS A SIGN…unfortunately MANY, even many believers did NOT understand.
Add to it the so-called ‘Primaries’ and what was happening between the so many ‘candidates’ ; Biden was so down on the List – the Fifth from all Candidates. Then there was the time when ‘Everything STOPPED’ and nothing was happening --- really?!
Do you remember the ‘Basement’ and what Biden-and-Team were doing? Then, the ‘Candidacy’ of Biden to run against President Trump. IF you were asked today “WHAT did you notice as UPNORMAL at that time, both in the visible, but also in the invisible, what would your answer be?”
It was not ‘Oh, suddenly it happened!”…because the SIGNS were there, but nobody seemed to notice – I am talking about the Taken Over by the so-called Media Platforms (Facebook, Twitter…etc.). I must admit it was well-planned and well-executed and many were surprised – but why should they? At the End Time Evil Power will NOT only do evil in secret, but will do it publicly and be proud of it, encouraging others to do the same. “Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them” Romans 1:32.
There was WRATH upon those who are serving the devil in different ways, as we read: “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness…”
BUT they did NOT care; they’ve planned everything nearly in a perfect way, still they couldn’t succeed because ONLY the Word and the Ways of the Lord are perfect.
When you serve in the Middle East, where people believe in superstitions and myths; where people believe in ‘Good Devils’ and ‘Bad Devils’…etc. you hear a lot of things AND most of the time there is SOME truth found in such rumours. One of such rumours was about the curses the Mullahs in Iran have sent against America, and the ‘Good Devils’ they prayed to and asked to “…destroy the Great Satan (America) and the Small Satan (Israel)…”. You could say, they sold their souls to the devil in order to have somebody installed in the White House, who could cooperate with them and lift up the crippling sanctions.
But also in the Spiritual you could sense the shift to a darker world; every war or a proxy-war was the VISIBLE Sign to what was going on (The Battle) in the Invisible – America was GREAT at the time of President Trump and the Church was riding a wave of success. Millions of American returned to God
because of what President Trump was doing: In public or behind the scene. Every prayer uttered in the White House shook the Foundation of Evil in Washington, DC and worldwide. Every prayer uttered in Congress, was shaping our world, and shaping America. The devil felt ‘cornered’…and he poured out his anger and wrath in a very evil way. Deception was his weapon; it is the well-practiced and well-wielded weapon he used since his fall –and it will be the SAME weapon, which he will use again at the End Time.
Hear what our Lord Jesus says concerning THAT “And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many” Matthew 24:4-5.
Was the STEALING well done? YES; it was well-planned and Not-Very-Well executed – thousands of witnesses and evidence are there BUT the Justice System failed the TRUTH!
I am not going to mention names, show videos or statistics…ALL of that is available (Until the Control-The-People Media removes it!) but I can tell you: Today, demonic powers are better united than the Children of Light!
HOW can we prove that we are right?
The Lord opened our eyes and we watched, with dismay, horror and with hearts weeping-for-America when we read the FIRST Executive Orders: They were demonic, directly from hell!
Let me mention some:
1. “On his first day in office, President Joe Biden issued a sweeping executive order making clear that gay and transgender people are protected against discrimination in the workplace, schools, health care, and other realms of American life”
2. Dr. Rachel Levine made history when President Biden announced her as his nominee for assistant secretary of health. If confirmed, she will become the first openly transgender federal official approved by the Senate.
3. Biden legalizing cannabis would be a huge step toward racial equality—2.February -- The Biden administration now has the opportunity to listen to the American people and use cannabis reform as a step towards racial equality.
4. Biden Makes His Fight for LGBTQ Rights International-4.February -- In his first remarks to State Department staff since his inauguration, President Joe Biden on Thursday announced that he was issuing a presidential memorandum laying out new policies for America’s diplomats to promote and protect the rights of LGBTQ people around the world.
I want to declare: The Lord rebuke you, Satan, take your hands away/off God’s People.
And just like that the Government controls all sporting events, concerts, jobs, colleges, medical facilities, food and even toilet papers AND whether or not you can leave your own house or travel home or abroad. They now control you and everything about your life by using viruses to scare you and the public. Anything you say now is either ‘Conspiracy Theory’ or ‘Anti-Government’ -- ALL freedom has been limited overnight. Strange enough ALL happened prior to Biden entry to the White House!
Our Lord declares: "But he who sins against Me injures himself; All those who hate Me LOVE DEATH" Proverbs 8:36 – killing unborn babies is a sin against God…and allowing Homo-marriage is not different!
We want to encourage you though to “…be still and know I am God” – our Almighty God is preparing a People for Himself during the time of deception, confusion and lies. Turn back to Him, seek Him with all your heart and let Him guide you; the world will be surprised. Let’s stand together and declare, as the Word of God says “…Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven…”
As His chosen People, we have the responsibility to declare that daily when we pray, everywhere we go and declare it loudly – let it be the Battle’s Shout of God’s People before His Second Return.
May God bless America…and prepare the hearts of His People for His Continuous Presence. Amen.
Have a \\\^I^/// Blessed Day
“…I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me”
Thank you for supporting International Christian Outreach Ministry and standing with us and the persecuted Christians in Iraq.
