And the Lord heard the voice of Elijah. 1 5/5 (2)

And it came to pass after these things, that the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, fell sick; and his sickness was so sore, that there was no breath left in him.

And she said unto Elijah, What have I to do with thee, O thou man of God? art thou come unto me to call my sin to remembrance, and to slay my son?

And he said unto her, Give me thy son. And he took him out of her bosom, and carried him up into a loft, where he abode, and laid him upon his own bed.

And he cried unto the Lord, and said, O Lord my God, hast thou also brought evil upon the widow with whom I sojourn, by slaying her son?

And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the Lord, and said, O Lord my God, I pray thee, let this child’s soul come into him again.

And the Lord heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived.
(From: 1 Kings 17:17-22 KJV)

Be strong and of a good courage. 1 5/5 (1)

Now after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord it came to pass, that the Lord spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ minister, saying,

2 Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel.

3 Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.

4 From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast.

5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

6 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.

7 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.

8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

“The children in our lives need our help to learn how to react to the chaos that is all around.” 1 No ratings yet.

Be Still and Know by Terry Sedra.
In our journey through life we are often thrust into situations in which we are in the midst of a battle or a storm. In these rough situations our reactions should be to inwardly relax in the knowledge that God has control.

Our son had spent his first years in Egypt where it rains about every three years. The event was exciting to him and to the neighbors who gathered in their balconies with towels draped on their heads to experience the few drops of rain and discuss it with each other. He was several years old when we visited grandparents in the USA, and in the night a thunderstorm downpour woke us up. He was terrified. The bright flashes of lightening, booms of thunder, and the large amount of water coming down scared him. Quietly and gently we took him to a large window and explained that God was making this powerful display of sound and light. He calmed as we noted the beautiful forms of the light flashes in the sky and the rain cleaning trees, bushes, cars, and roads, while Grandpa’s fields and grass were getting a big drink of water. All the elements of the storm were still there, but he was calm in the knowledge that his friend, God, had created and was controlling it.

Children need to be trained to be calm in the inner storms that come into their life also. We all need to realize that we can learn much by being still in the time of inside or outside turmoil.
Elihu counselled Job when he was in a great health crisis and had also lost most of his possessions to “Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still and consider the wonderous works of God” (Job 37:14).

After Job was stilled and calm, he told God something he learned, “I know that thou canst do everything, and that no thought can be withholden from thee” (Job 42:2).

Isaiah prophesied and corrected the wayward and rebelling children of Israel that asked for help from the Egyptians rather than looking to God when they were oppressed. “For the Egyptians shall help in vain . . . Their strength is to sit still” (Isaiah 30:7).

The children in our lives need our help to learn how to react to the chaos that is all around. Many countries are at war, and many have disasters of floods, earthquakes, famines, as well as prevalent crime and unstable governments. More personal chaos may be an unstable home, sickness, relatives on drugs, ridicule at school, or fears that cause turmoil of heart. Let us guide our children to “Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10).

“…make your calling and election sure…” Like 5/5 (1)

Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:
Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;

And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall…
(2 Peter 1:1-10 King James Version (KJV)

The UPCI and the 30 Days of Prayer for 2018 (also in Español) Like 5/5 (1)

The UPCI and the 30 Days of Prayer for 2018
The United Pentecostal Church International has embraced the theme “FORWARD” as we move forward to a destination of continual success! Join us in prayer and fasting, believing that as we sow in the land, we would receive in this same year a hundredfold and be blessed like Isaac, the son of Abraham. God have Abraham a promise, and we are the spiritual seed (lineage) of Abraham. Likewise, as heirs of that promise, we pray that the church would wax greater, move forward, and grow until we become very great. (Genesis 26:12-13)

So I met my giant whom I feared in the dark that night and my life changed. 1 5/5 (1)

“If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you” (John 15:7).

It was night and the sky was black; no stars could be seen. Even though I had spent many nights hiding in my room since arriving in Northern Ireland, I decided this would be the night to face my giant. The Bible tells us as Goliath moved closer to attack, David quickly ran out to meet him (I Samuel 17:48). So, I opened the kitchen door and walked out into the dark to face my giant.

I walked out into the dark night armed with my “one prayer that changed everything.” My children and my husband needed me to be armed with this one prayer. If I did not confront my giant and arm myself with this kind of prayer, my family would not have the wife and mother they deserved. They deserved me to be strong and not fearful. They deserved me to face that fear and not run from it anymore. I also deserved for me to face the fear.

As a little girl I remember many nights my grandmother would take me from the parsonage to the church to pray. The church would be dark inside with only a small light in the altar area. But the peace I felt as I lay under that pew and listened to her pray! I knew I wanted to give my children the same feeling of peace in our home.

My desire that night was so strong to be strong. “Therefore I say unto you, what things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them” (Mark 11:24).

So I met my giant whom I feared in the dark that night and my life changed. I’m not saying I still do not have battles, but now I know how to fight them and win. I fight them by facing them in prayer. The war is not over, but each battle I win brings me closer to victory!

Note: Cindy McFarland is married to her childhood sweetheart. Together they have seen the good and the other stuff. But God’s blessings have outweighed the other stuff and have given them three amazing children and now three amazing grand babies. Together they have been involved in missions in the countries of Northern Ireland and Ireland for twenty-one years.

The Word of God and Rev Phaeton preaching at ARC today. 1 5/5 (1)

Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.

And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.

And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.

And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.

And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.
FROM: Exodus 3:1-5 King James Version (KJV)

And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries?

And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the Lord am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my Lord unto his servant?

And the captain of the Lord’s host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so.
FROM: Joshua 5:13-15 King James Version (KJV)

This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
FROM: Joshua 1:8 King James Version (KJV)
