Program, Duminica Seara 19 Mai 2013

Presedintele Cultului Penticostal Pavel Rivis Tipei a predicat

Vladimir Pustan: Un oaspete special, venit de la Arad, cel care conduce destinul Cultului Penticostal din Romania, biserica pe care Dumnezeu ne-a facut bucuria sa-i slujim in anii acestia ca si Ciresari, desi o parte dintre noi suntem Baptisti, Penticostali sau alte confesiuni slujind intregii tari, in aceasta seara, Presedintele Cultului din Romania- Conferentiar, Doctor Rivis Tipei, Domnul sa-l binecuvanteze. Alaturi de Ciresarii, multumesc lui Dumnezeu pentru dansul sa poata lucra in continuare destinul acestei lucrari:

In urma cu 10 ani am avut un vis…

Un vis il poti visa de unul singur. Sunt visuri pe care le visezi si nu e nevoie de nimeni langa tine ca sa le pui in viata. Visul pe care l-am avut i nurma cu un an de zile, pentru a deveni realitate trebuia sa fie ajutat de mai multi. Eram pastor in biserica Sfanta Treime din Beius si stiam ca Dumnezeu ne-a facut ca de aici din Beius sa mergem mai departe in tara si sa ne largim hotarele acestea, pentru ca ne doream ca binecuvantarea lui Dumnezeu sa fie cunoscuta in toata Romania. Pentru ca asa erau vremurile in timpul acela, am constituit o fundatie, pe care am botezat-o ‘Ciresarii’. O fundatie pur Romaneasca, in sensul in care, in toti acesti 10 ani de zile, nimeni din strainatate (cei care nu sunt Romani, nu vorbesc despre Romanii plecati in diaspora) nimeni nu ne-a intins o mana. Am inceput aceasta organizatie pur crestina si pur Romaneasca cu o motivatie clara: Hristos, impartasit la cat mai multi oameni. Am inceput timid in Beius- o camera cu un om angajat. Dupa aceea am fost in chirie, ne-am mutat intr-un spatiu al bisericii vechi, dupa care ne-am mutat in birourile pe care le avem si astazi. In 2003 ne-am constituit, in mai, m-a ajutat atunci foarte mult Viorel Mateas pentru ca sa putem intocmi un statut. De zece ori l-am schimbat intre timp, pentru ca tot ne-am largit activitatea si ne-am dat seama ca atunci, chiar ca am visat putin si eu si Viorel. Ne-am speriat ce a devenit mai tarziu. Vreau sa le multumesc acelor oameni care au fost atunci alaturi de mine, chiar la inceput, ca e tare greu. Orice inceput e greu.

In toti acesti ani am crescut constant. In 2005 am inchiriat sala Olimpia. Aveam o pereche de blugi si o haina. Nu aveam un ban. Sala Olimpia are 3,000 de locuri. Am gandit ca daca vin 300 e bine. Au venit 3,000. A doua oara cand ne-am dus la Olimpia au venit 4,000 de oameni. Ne-am dat seama ca ceva se misca. La Cluj au fost 6,000. La Suceava pe stadion au fost 9,000. Incepeau sa creasca oamenii. Ne-am dat seama, de fapt, ca viata este frumoasa si trebuie sa indraznesti mult. Adica, sa-ti faci visuri XL (extra largi), sa incapi in ele. Imi pare rau de toate visele mici si stramte, ca au plesnit pe mine in anii acestia.

Nu vreau sa va spun, ca au fost ani in care am fost deprimat si am zis, „Trebuie sa le lasam balta pe toate.” Au fost zile, au fost clipe. Am scris foarte mult in cartea care a aparut in zilele acestea ‘Fara Regrete, Fara Retragere’, in care am povestit totul ce s-a intamplat. Minunile lui Dumnezeu. Nu se putea face lucrarea aceasta daca nu aveam oameni care sa viseze impreuna cu mine si sa ducem visul acesta mai departe. Nu stiu daca as fi putut sa il realizez in alta parte decat in Beius. Din ce cauza Beius? Aici m-am nascut. Intr-un fel sau in altul sunt dependent de orasul acesta. Consider ca e un atentat la linistea mea faptul ca s-au pus semafoare in oras. Aici ma simt bine. Aici am crescut, aici este locul meu. Nu as putea sa stau, sa caut o ora un loc de parcare in alta parte. Mi-aduc aminte cand cei dragi de ai nostri de la primarie ne-au lasat in sala primariei. I-am rugat (sa ne lase) pentru un an si s-au facut 6-7 ani. In fiecare Duminica, la inceput de luna ne adunam 7-800 de oameni in sala primariei si au pus-o cu dragoste, gratuit. Nu va spun, ca nu i-am blocat. Usa la pompieri am blocat-o. Cineva a parcat drept in fata pompierilor. Putea-i tot suna ca iti arde casa, ca ai nostri faceau worship. Am blocat iesiri de la politie, dar ne-au inteles. Asta este. Si doresc ca Beius sa fie inundat de oameni in fiecare Duminica.

Au fost ani si spuneam ca numai in Beius se putea pentru ca aici am avut si sustinerea puternica a prietenilor, a colegilor mei de la biserica, a celor care conduc orasul acesta. Indiferent de culoarea politica pe care au avut-o, au avut aceeasi culoare calda a inimii. Si pentru asta le multumesc. S-au construit multe lucruri. Un centru de copii, in care ingrijim o gramada de copii, care sa aiba ce le trebuie la scoala, sa-i aducem de la scoala sa le dam de mancare. Avem cantina sociala in parteneriat cu primaria- aproximativ aproape 100 de portii de mancare pe zi. Nu-i usor.

Avem sala aceasta. Am inceput de la zero, cu o bucata de pamant la marginea orasului, data cu dragoste tot de cei de la primarie. Astazi ne adunam in locul acesta, avem birourile noastre, avem radioul la Arad, televiziunea e aici, cand transmitem pe internet. Avem scoala de predicare la Cluj, una dintre cele mai moderne scoli din Romania. E in mijlocul Clujului. Va invitam sa va duceti acolo. Am mers in vreo 150 de orase din Romania, 150 de case de cultura, sali de sport, am batut toate orasele din Romania. Mai avem o aniversare, tot la Sala Palatului la Bucuresti, pe data de 9 Iunie (Duminica seara). Atunci vom fi cu ceilalti din cealalta zona a tarii. Nu realizarile au fost pentru noi cele mai importante, pentru faptul ca astea vor ramane toate intr-o zi aici, ci ceea ce a facut Dumnezeu prin noi de aici, din locul acesta, mergand prin tara. Asa l-am gasit pe Beni Duda si trupa lui, Ciresarii  si am plecat cu ei prin toata tara, mii de km cu microbuzele. Mii de momente in care am crezut ca nu mai putem sa mai facem nimic. Va dati seama ca vorbim despre sali care costa 2,500 Euro pe ora. O uriasa suma de bani ca sa vorbim despre Hristos oamenilor. O gramada de munca in spatele tuturor acestor lucruri, a oamenilor care stau acolo in spate, pe care nu-i vedeti. O gramada de oameni care au daruit, de oameni care au facut totul. Nu va vine sa credeti, dar primim mii de scrisori saptamanal din toata lumea. Spun ca ceea ce facem aici, lucrarea care ne-a fost incredintata, pentru ca am inteles ca vremurile se schimba si biserica trebuie sa treaca intr-o noua era si trebuie sa-i cautam pe oameni unde sunt- pe internet. Biserica este cea mai vizionata biserica din sud-estul Europei si acum ii salutam pe Romanii nostri de ori unde sunteti, din toata lumea, care ne ascultati si sunteti impreuna cu noi. Avem tot ceea ce ne trebuie din punct de vedere material. Atunci nu visam aceste lucruri.

Vreau sa multumesc lui Dumnezeu ca ne-a binecuvantat mai mult decat ne-am gandit. Au trecut anii, am plecat prin casele de cultura, multi oameni s-au intors la Dumnezeu, oameni care erau in droguri, oameni care traiau o viata nenorocita si pacatoasa. Oameni care L-au primit pe Dumnezeu ascultand radioul nostru. Cu baza la Arad, transmite #1 pe Romania- radio Ciresarii… Unii dintre dumneavoastra v-ati rugat, altii a-ti daruit. Altii ne-ati incurajat, altii ne-ati criticat si a-ti spus, „Mai, nu-i bine,’ si am inteles. In viata si asta se intampla si este foarte bine. Altii au lucrat fizic si intelectual. Lucrarea aceasta s-a facut cu putin. Dumneavoastra stiti cum am cumparat scaunele astea. Fiecare a cumparat cate un scaun. Altii au cumparat 3 randuri. Cand am betonat locurile de parcare fiecare a-ti platit. Ne-ati iubit- ne trimiteti banii dumneavoastra si bataile voastre pe umar. Ne trimiteti viata dumneavoastra, intr-un fel si altul. Vrem sa va multumim.

Nu stim ce va fii, stiu ca va trebui sa fie ceva frumos. Mergem inainte. …am lucrat cu sute de mii de oameni in Romania. I-am invatat cum sa-si aleaga o profesie, cum sa scape de anumite obiceiuri pacatoase. Ne-am rugat pentru ei si i-am invatat ce trebuie sa faca. Editura noastra a produs mii de carti, care au fost distribuite in toata lumea aceasta. Nu ne laudam cu asta, desi am avut titluri care s-au tiparit de 3 ori pana acuma. Am considerat ca asa este normal, ca asa este bine, sa facem lucrurile acestea. Sunt lucruri marunte in viata naostra. De multe ori ne sare cate un sac de cartofi si nu stim cine la adus.

Sunt fericit ca pot sa lucrez cu dumneavoastra, ca a-ti venit ani de zile pe drumurile astea rele pe care le-am avut aici. Multi Oradeni a-ti venit cu noi. A-ti fost impreuna cu noi si ne-ati binecuvantat cu prezenta voastra. Multumesc celor de aici din Beius, celor din toata Romania, celor care a-ti fost sponsorii nostri dragi in acesti ani care au trecut, care ne-ati ajutat sa mergem mai departe, ne-ati batut pe umar- multumesc frumos.

God is dangerous apart from Jesus

christ_alone

Piper: The reason Jesus’s name is used is because we have no rights to go to God, except through Jesus. If you try to go to God apart from Jesus, you may be incinerated. God is very dangerous apart from Jesus. He is angry apart from Jesus. He has put Jesus Christ forward to remove His anger and to clothe us with righteousness, so that we can walk right into the flame of His holiness and not be consumed. Jesus is the only hope that any prayer will be heard, so we come in Jesus’s name.

Teach your children what it means to pray in Jesus’s name. THIS IS NOT A THROWAWAY PHRASE! Everything hangs on this phrase. It means: In the name of the One, in whose worth , in whose righteousness, in whose sacrifice we come. And no other way. That’s true, not only for our salvation, but for our supplication. You all know we’re saved through Jesus, and you SHOULD know we pray through Jesus. And they really are the same mediator role. ‘There is one mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus.” Don’t come any other way.

I am troubled when people feel like, ‘for the escape from mindless tradition’, we just leave off ‘in Jesus’s name’ from our prayers, and say nothing, except Amen. You don’t have to say it, BUT YOU HAD BETTER THINK IT! And if you’re thinking it, it wouldn’t hurt to say it, so that I know you’re thinking it. And not going any other way. It is not a throw away phrase. It’s not tradition. It’s right out of that verse and its massively important that we come in Christ alone to ask the Father for favor. We won’t get it any other way.

Citat

The sins of Babel (they’re also your sins and mine)

Piper: What are the sins? Let’s make this plain because they’re yours and mine:

  1. The love of human praise. There’s not a person in this room who doesn’t struggle with that, not one! You want it to come in different forms, depending on your personality, but you don’t like to be disapproved of. Nobody glories when they’re ripped to shreds, even with illegitimate criticism, let alone legitimate. So, we’re like this. Love of praise- We’re gonna make a name for ourselves, so people would think well of us.
  2. The love of security. Build a city, cities represent securities, build a wall, run to the city.

We all struggle with the love of making our love secure, making ourselves look good to other people and when those are the dominating controls in our lives we’re this way (like the builders of Babel). God’s will for human beings is not that we find our joy in the praise of men, but, that we find our joy in knowing and praising Him. And, God’s will is not that we find our security in the things we can build, places we can go, locks we can put on our door, alarms we can put on our car. That’s not where we’re to find out security. We’re to find our security in Him, and in glad obedience to Him.

The evils of domestic abuse in the Church (A must read!)

wife sad b-wvia The Aquila Report – Read the article in its entirety here: http://theaquilareport.com In her article, Rachel Miller defines what an abuser is, what typically happens in a church when a victim seeks help, and how to help a vicitim.

Rachel Miller:

Miller quotes from Pastor Jeff Crippen’s book ‘A Cry for Justice’: The local church is one of the favorite hiding places of the abusive person. Conservative, Bible-believing religion is his frequent choice of facade. Within the evangelical church, women (and sometimes men) are being terribly abused in their homes and marriages. The children of such abusers are suffering as well. And when those victims come to their churches, to their pastors, and to their fellow Christians, pleading for help, well … Victims of abuse are often discounted by their churches (12).

So what, then, is an abuser? How does one recognize him? [As Pastor Crippen points out, the vast majority of abusers are men. Because of this and for the sake of brevity, he (and I) will use the masculine pronouns, although we are not suggesting that men are the only ones who are abusers.] Pastor Crippen spends a good majority of the book explaining the “tactics and mentality” of abusers. Here is a brief definition of “abuse” and “abuser”:

Abuse then, is a mentality of entitlement and superiority in which an abuser uses various tactics to obtain and enforce unjustified power and control over another person. The abuser thinks that he is absolutely justified in using these tactics to maintain this power and control over his victim. Abuse is effected in many ways: both physical (including sexual) and non-physical (verbal). It can be active (physically or verbally) or passive (not speaking, not acting). Abuse, therefore, is not limited to physical assault. Indeed, the non-physical forms of abuse often are far more damaging, deceptive, and cruel (18).

Pastor Crippen points out that “it is a serious mistake to assume an abuser thinks like everyone else does.” (19) An abuser has no problems doing horrible things to others and then sleep like a baby at night, without any remorse or attacks of conscience. (42) This is because very often abusers “operate in a world largely or entirely devoid of a functional conscience.” (48) Because of this abusers do not act like everyone else, instead they:

  • Lack shame.
  • Have no empathy.
  • Experience little or not real anxiety.
  • Display false repentance very convincingly.
  • Lie, even in the face of plain facts that controvert their lie.
  • Use what appears to be real emotion or feeling, but in fact is just an act designed to manipulate. (49)

Pastor Crippen believes, despite the fact that many of these abusers are members of churches, that abusers are very likely unregenerate as they do not show evidence of saving grace or true repentance. (43)

While I’m sure that certain abusive tactics are familiar to most people, Pastor Crippen give a list of common tactics used by abusers. Some of these are: controlling the activities of others, abusing things that belong to the victim, harsh criticism (usually with very vulgar language) of victims physical appearance, isolating his victim, sleep deprivation, keeping his victim in poverty, preventing adequate medical care, cruelty to pets, and alienating the children from the victim. (33-34)

One of the main reasons that Pastor Crippen wrote A Cry for Justice is that all too often churches, pastors, and well-meaning Christians end up hurting victims and protecting abusers. Here is an example from the book that outlines what happens when a victim comes to her church for help:

1. Victim reports abuse to her pastor.

2. Pastor does not believe her claims, or at least believes they are greatly exaggerated. After all, he “knows” her husband to be one of the finest Christian men he knows, a pillar of the church.

3. Pastor minimizes the severity of the abuse. His goal is often, frankly, damage control (to himself and to his church).

4. Pastor indirectly (or not so indirectly!) implies that the victim needs to do better in her role as wife and mother and as a Christian. He concludes that all such scenarios are a “50/50″ blame sharing.

5. Pastor sends the victim home, back to the abuser, after praying with her and entrusting the problem to the Lord.

6. Pastor believes he has done his job.

7. Victim returns, reporting that nothing has changed. She has tried harder and prayed, but the abuse has continued.

8. Pastor decides to do some counseling. …

9. As time passes, the victim becomes the guilty party in the eyes of the pastor and others. She is the one causing the commotion. She is pressured by the pastor and others int he church to stop rebelling, to submit to her husband, and stop causing division in the church.

10. After more time passes, the victim separates from or divorces the abuser. The church has refused to believe her, has persistently covered up the abuse, has failed to obey the law and report the abuse to the police, and has refused to exercise church discipline against the abuser. Ironically, warnings of impending church discipline are often directed against the victim!

11. The final terrible injustice is that the victim is the one who must leave the church, while the abuser remains a member in good standing, having successfully duped the pastor and church into believing that his victim was the real problem (21-22).

So, how then can churches, pastors, and concerned Christians help the victims of abuse? The first step is to become very familiar with the tactics and mentality of abusers. Books such as A Cry for Justice or Barbara Roberts’ book, Not Under Bondage, can help a educate leaders and others on what abuse looks like and how abusers and their victims often behave.

When a victim comes to you for help, you will need to be ready. Pastor Crippen lays out some guidelines to help leaders do the right thing. The first is to believe the victim. Pastor Crippen points out that this is not blind acceptance but that “in most cases those who report abuse are speaking with honesty.” (186) Other guidelines include not being swayed based on who the abuser is, understanding that all forms of abuse (not just physical or sexual) are serious, reporting abuse to police and allowing the justice system to act, protecting the victim from accusations, a warning not to attempt to cover up the abuse, and preaching on the topic of abuse to prepare and protect your congregation. (186-188)

In addition to giving guidelines on how to help victims, Pastor Crippen also gives a list of rules for how to deal with abusers:

1. Question everything. Even “facts” he states with absolute confidence.
2. Believe nothing without corroboration.
3. Assume he is attempting to deceive you.
4. Accept nothing less than full, unqualified repentance.
5. Do not pity him, no matter how emotional he might be.
6. Accept no excuses.
7. Do not let him blame others. (237-238)

If this seems harsh to you, remember the definition of abuse and the abuser:

Abuse then, is a mentality of entitlement and superiority in which an abuser uses various tactics to obtain and enforce unjustified power and control over another person. The abuser thinks that he is absolutely justified in using these tactics to maintain this power and control over his victim. Abuse is effected in many ways: both physical (including sexual) and non-physical (verbal). It can be active (physically or verbally) or passive (not speaking, not acting). Abuse, therefore, is not limited to physical assault. Indeed, the non-physical forms of abuse often are far more damaging, deceptive, and cruel (18).

Abusers are not acting and thinking like everyone else.
