Nehemiah 12:46

For long ago, in the days of David and Asaph, there had been directors for the singers and for the songs of praise and thanksgiving to God.

Isaiah 12:4
In that day you will say: „Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted.

Colossians 3:17
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

The Story of the Pilgrims

This 1979 feature is one of the rare attempts to dramatize a chapter of America’s formation. Set in 1620, the story concerns the religious persecution of the Puritans in England and their decision to emigrate to Plymouth Colony in America. This is a fairly sturdy and enjoyable piece of historical drama, with the most important details about who, what, where, and why informatively answered. Richard Crenna is fine as the Reverend William Brewster, one of the Pilgrim Fathers and a veteran of relocating religious minorities to more hospitable places. David Dukes is effective as Miles Standish, giving us some insight into how this military man came to be an essential part of the Plymouth community. Photo credit http://pneumareview.com

Originally titled The Voyage of the Mayflower, this made-for-TV historical drama was, not surprisingly, first telecast as a Thanksgiving special. In the tradition of the 1952 theatrical feature Plymouth Adventure, the film meticulously recount[s] the journey of 103 Pilgrim „separatists” from their religiously restrictive English homeland to the shores of the New World. The dramatic crux of the film [is] manifested in the conflict between mercenary, untrustworthy Mayflower captain Christopher Jones (Anthony Hopkins) and idealistic but tough Pilgrim leader William Brewster (Richard Crenna). Also incorporated in the narrative are the intertwining relationships between Miles and Rose Standish (David Dukes, Trish Van Devere), John Alden (Michael Beck), and Priscilla Mullens (Jenny Agutter). The film is recommended by the National Education Association (NEA).

Know Your Roots (1) American Evangelicalism Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

Photo credit nathancherry.com

This is part 1 & 2 of 4 in a series produced at Trinity International University, an event that took place at the Carl F. Henry Center.

The speakers are Carl F. Henry and Kenneth S. Kantzer, who both happened to be editors for Christianity Today before this lecture/debate took place (which I am estimating to be in the early or mid 1990’s), and who are considered to be deans of the American Evangelical Movement. Some of the topic discussed in this Christian Thought Lecture Series:

  • What is evangelicalism?
  • What is fundamentalism?
  • How do we distinguish between the 2 movements?
  • What is the future of evangelicalism in an age so manifestly pluralistic and secular?
  • Have evangelicals conformed their lifestyles too closely to the ethical and moral standards of their culture?
  • How can they witness for Christ more effectively?

Dr.’s Henry and Kantzer will address:

  • Turning points within evangelicalism during the previous 50 years and the resurgence  of American Evangelicalism since the 1940’s
  • Later on they assess the prospects of the evangelical movement as the year 2000 approaches.

Ronnie Smith – American teacher and Christian gunned down in Benghazi, Libya

Ronnie Smith, born in Warren, Michigan, the third child of four, with 3 sisters,  picked John Piper as his hero on his church’s webpage, Austin Stone Community Church where Smith was a deacon. Ronnie Smith had 2 reasons for picking John Piper as his hero: (1) It was through John Piper that Smith discovered Jonathan Edwards and (2) God used John Piper to teach him the meaning and the joy of the supremacy of Christ in all things. And we can add that Piper also inspired and led Ronnie Smith to move to a restive nation like Libya, after Ronnie listened to a message preached by John Piper. (Photo on right from austinstone.org)

Here’s what the Christian Post reported:

Smith was also inspired by Piper of the DesiringGod ministry. „Ronnie wrote to us at Desiring God last year and told us that one of my messages was significant in leading him and his family to Libya,” writes Piper on his blog. „I came to tears this morning praying for Anita and Hosea,” Piper says, but adds: „After sorrow and sympathy, my response was (and is) prayer. ‘Lord, give Anita great faith. Help her to weep – but not as those who have not hope. Make that little fellow proud of his daddy. May he grow up thrilled to be in the bloodline of such a man.'”

Piper says he is also sobered by the news. „Ronnie is not the first person who has died doing what I have encouraged them to do. He won’t be the last. If I thought death were the worst thing that can happen to a person, I would be overwhelmed with regret… But the whole point of Ronnie’s life is that there is something worse than death. So he was willing to risk his own life to rescue others from something far worse.” (Read more here – http://www.christianpost.com)

Here’s an excerpt from John Piper’s post:

But the whole point of Ronnie’s life is that there is something worse than death. So he was willing to risk his own life to rescue others from something far worse. And he could risk his own life because he knew his own risking and dying would work for him “an eternal weight of glory” (2 Corinthians 4:17). And he knew God was able to meet every need of his wife and son (Philippians 4:19).

American teacher Ronnie Smith, who was shot and killed in Benghazi on Thursday, depended on his faith in Jesus Christ alone while working in Libya, and had decided to move to that restive nation after listening to a message by preacher John Piper, according to reports.

„I want to go where no one could find a church if they wanted to, where no one has access to this gospel,” Smith, a Texas native, said in a video before moving to Libya. The video was posted on the website of his home church, Austin Stone Community Church, until his death, according to CNN.

Smith, who served as a deacon in his church and was teaching chemistry at the International School in Benghazi, was killed by gunmen riding in a black jeep while he was out jogging on Thursday morning. The gunmen are suspected to be Islamist militants. Smith, 33, who is survived by his wife, Anita, and his son, Hosea, was aware of the danger of working in Libya, but his faith in God gave him strength. „No matter what happens, I’m good,” he told his church members in the video, as quoted by CBS News. „That gives me peace, and I’m OK with that.” „That can never be taken away from me no matter what happens,” Smith said, of his Christian faith.

Smith had been in Libya for about one and a half years before he was killed. Anita and Hosea returned to Texas, but Smith stayed back to help his students through midterm exams.

„I was raised in the church from the time I was an infant,” Smith wrote on his church’s website, about his Christian background. „It was only by the grace of God that I went through my high school and college years free from the major struggles that many of those I knew dealt with. It was not always sunshine and lollipops but God’s hand was always leading me and He brought me to where I am today.”

Smith admired the 18th century theologian Jonathan Edwards, who „understood that God gave us minds for the sole purpose of glorifying Him.” „All of his writings and personal letters are saturated with Christ and he always seemed to have the glory of God in the forefront of his thinking,” Smith wrote about the theologian. „As a man of supreme intellect and prestige, he was refreshingly humble and holy. If I could model my life after anyone in the last 1000 years it would definitely be Edwards.”

According to Dave Barrett, pastor of Austin Stone Community Church, Smith’s greatest desire was for peace and prosperity in Libya „and for the people of Libya to have the joy of knowing God through Christ.”

U.S. officials are still trying to determine who is responsible for the murder of American teacher Ronnie Smith, in Libya. Smith, 33, was shot and killed while jogging down a Benghazi street.

Mt. Rainier reflected in Reflection lake

Reflection Lake Hike September 1 2013

Mount Rainier National Park is a well known park among the tourists for its dense forests, waterfalls, wildflower meadows, river valleys and of course for its icy glaciers. This park opens dozens of possibilities for hikers offering more than 260 miles of trails. These trails go through the magnificent forests, peaceful meadows on the flanks of Mount Rainier and its glaciers.

Reflection Lakes received its name from a close full reflection of Mount Rainier in its waters. The most picturesque view of Mount Rainier opens at Reflection Lakes. This is one of the most photographed locations in the park.

In summer time, the lakes are encircled with wildflowers and in winter, as the water freezes over you will not see the reflection, but you will see a beautiful frozen lake covered with snow.
In order to start your journey you need to park your car on the Stevens Canyon Road parking place. It should be mentioned that you may hike the loop trail in either direction.

Fishing, wading and swimming are prohibited at Reflection Lakes, but you may enjoy the beauty of the lakes framed with lupine, fireweed and enjoy a trout jumping out of water.
This trail takes you through wildflowers, panoramic views, nice streams and meadows. Keep in mind that this trail that goes around Reflection lakes is short, that’s why you will see a lot of signed junctions with other trails. You may choose any of them.

While hiking this trail you will pass between Reflection and Louise Lakes, climb a steep trail that will lead you to Faraway Rock, and then cross a small but very gorgeous stream.
Continuing this trail you will also see Fairy Pond, don’t be surprised if you don’t see it on the map. This trail gives the tourists opportunities to enjoy the view of peaceful meadows, subalpine trees and icy glaciers.

‘i commit to pray’ new website launched by Voice of the Martyrs

A place to gather and pray for the persecuted church. Read prayer requests from around the world and post your own prayers specifically for your brothers and sisters who are being persecuted.

Photo credit www.persecution.com

click here for the WEBSITE –

icommittopray.com

a website of Voice of the Martyrs USA

Launched on Sunday, the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP), www.iCommitToPray.com invites Christians around the world to commit to pray for those who are persecuted simply for believing in Christ.

Todd Nettleton with Voice of the Martyrs USA says, “The first request of our persecuted family, when we go and visit them, is that we pray for them.”

This new Web site grew out of the desire to fulfill this request.

“The idea for this site really grew out of activity we already saw on the VOM Facebook page,” Nettleton said. “We often post prayer requests, and we began to see people comment on the post and type in their prayers for those currently being persecuted. And others would be encouraged by that, and add their own prayer in the next comment, and so on.

„At times we could even print out those prayers and show them to the Christians in hostile and restricted nations, and they were incredibly blessed to see very tangibly that Christians around the world hadn’t forgotten them and were lifting them up in prayer. We want iCommitToPray.com to be a site dedicated to that kind of prayer and encouragement.”

Users of the new Web site can post their written prayers and then invite friends to join with them in praying. Having this connection to other believers through social media provides awareness, information, and opportunities to encourage and uphold those who suffer for bearing the name of Christ.

„What we envision for iCommitToPray.com is a great prayer meeting for persecuted Christians. But instead of gathering in a church or someone’s living room, Christians will gather online to pray for the persecuted church,” explain Nettleton.

Pray that this Web site will motivate believers worldwide to pray for their persecuted brothers and sisters. (Source mnnonline.org)

Naghmeh Abedini, wife of Iranian-American pastor Saeed Abedin who is imprisoned in Iran, speaks at Liberty University

Please listen to the 6 minute video at the bottom of this post, as Naghmeh Abedini talks about how she always feared she would question Jesus’ goodness, if she were to ever go through a big trial. But, she says, „..in that deep, dark night of despair, I reached put to Jesus, and I’ve known Him since I was 9, and I connected to Him in such a deep way that, not only did I not question His goodness, but I proclaim His goodness amd how awesome He is, and I got to drink of His goodness. He gave me strength to stand and He’s given me joy and peace.”

Story, video and Photo credit http://www.liberty.edu

Naghmeh Abedini has been traveling the U.S. and the world for over 15 months to raise awareness of her husband Pastor Saeed Abedini’s unjust imprisonment in Tehran.

Saeed Abedini was arrested in the summer of 2012 while helping build an orphanage in Iran. He was later sentenced to eight years in Evin Prison in Tehran for “endangering national security.” He has served a year of that sentence already and has been beaten and told to give up his faith in Christ.

According to his wife, Saeed Abedini has stood strong in his faith and has led over 30 people in prison to Christ.

“The kids and I desperately want him back, but we are proud that he has chosen to stand up for his faith and to proclaim the Gospel in a dark prison and bring hope to those people,” she said. “To know that so many of the Iranian people are coming to know Christ makes it worth it. I know his imprisonment is not in vain.”

In June, Naghmeh Abedini had the chance to speak to the United Nations in Geneva, sharing the Gospel with more than 196 nations. The message was broadcast to more than 50 million Iranians.

“I pray that the Lord would awaken your desire to ask for nations for your inheritance and that you would be on fire for the Living God,” she said.

Vice President for Communications Johnnie Moore said Liberty believes the Great Commission is both for people in the ministry and in the marketplace.

“Missions is at the heart of the university and always has been. We do not believe that the Great Commission is for some Christians, it is for all Christians,” he said.

Liberty’s student body collectively represents all 50 states and 95 countries. Students and alumni are constantly engaged in areas all over the world, including the school’s ongoing Restore Rwanda campaign and several short-term mission trips through the Center for Global Engagement. Global Focus Week allows students to continue pursuing these options and become more involved in missions.

America’s Future Is Bleak „Unless God Moves Like a Tornado Through This Land – John Piper interviewed by Marvin Olasky

Story from World Magazine via http://www.blackchristiannews.com Photo from Bethlehem College and Seminary via World Magazine

When you read the last five chapters of Judges with its refrain about having no king in Israel, so everyone does what is right in his own eyes: Does that seem like modern America? „Everyone does what is right in his own eyes” sounds very much like modern skepticism or relativism or postmodernism, in that we have abandoned absolutes and right and wrong. Without faithful representatives of King Jesus in the churches, people will do their own thing.
 
What do you think the United States will look like in 10 or 20 years? I’m not optimistic, but I do believe in the absolute sovereignty of God who could be pleased in the eleventh hour of our self-destruction to move like a tornado through this land and cause people to wake up and say, „We’ve been insane.” It’s insane to kill babies. It’s insane to define marriage as two men having long-term sex with each other. God could move through our culture and cause people to say, „We’ve been in a fog, under a darkness, so that we couldn’t see you don’t kill babies and you don’t call that marriage.” That could happen. I will pray until I’m dead that it will happen.
 
If it doesn’t? I will reflect on Romans 1 where Paul projects the implications of people living against nature: receiving the penalty in their own bodies. We are going to wake up after this marriage fiasco in 10, 15, or 20 years, and the fruit of it will be absolutely devastating for children, for all the legal implications we haven’t thought of, for thousands of people who tried their best to manage their undesired same-sex orientation and didn’t get any help from the leaders of their land. Who knows what will follow in terms of polygamy and other kinds of sex once you have said a woman who wants a baby not to exist has the right to make it not exist, and you have the right to call „marriage” whatever you want to call it. Then there are no philosophical roadblocks to taking lives at lots of other times and calling lots of other things marriage.
 
It’s extremely politically incorrect for you to say these things. Political correctness means there is a way to talk that will prove least offensive to the cultural elite, or whoever you happen to be talking to with the authority and power to shut you down. I know Jesus hates that because Matthew told the story of the Sadducees who came to Him and asked, „By what authority are you doing these things, and who gave you this authority?” Jesus replied that they should first tell Him if the baptism of John was from heaven or from man? The Sadducees discussed His challenge and concluded if they say it’s from man, the crowd will stone them, but if they say it’s from heaven Jesus will ask why they didn’t believe him.
 
So they said something politically correct? They replied, „We don’t know,” and Jesus refused to answer them. Jesus won’t talk to people like that. I don’t like to be put in a position where Jesus won’t talk to me. Therefore I abominate political correctness. I abominate calculating your words so that you get acceptance by sacrificing truth.
 
AND ON A DIFFERENT SUBJECT:

You’ve mentioned two kinds of Christians. Please develop that. There are coronary Christians and adrenaline Christians. Adrenaline is given you for an immediate moment of wild and wonderful and courageous activity—and then it’s gone and you feel depleted. Coronary Christians are those whose wonderful blessed heart just goes “lub-dub, lub-dub, lub-dub.” It just goes on and on.

What’s an example of a coronary Christian? If you’re a mom and you’ve got kids in public school, I think what God wants you to do is to go to PTA meetings and stand up and say what needs to be said no matter what happens. Say what’s inappropriate for 6-year-olds in sex education; say what needs to be done in science class. We need to get beyond the sense that “if I can’t fix it, I won’t talk.” You’re not called to fix it. You are called to talk and keep talking until you don’t have a voice in you anymore.

A lot of pro-life people have persevered that way. Here in the Twin Cities, Pro-Life Action Ministries has been around all the time I’ve been a pastor. Some folks over there are just as steady as they go. They’ve been here forever. It is hard to stay in pro-life work and keep at it. It’s hard to be a crisis-counseling ministry. It’s hard to do street ministry and mobilize people for street counseling and prayer vigils—and they have been doing it for decades. We are not even on the same page theologically. I know that, but I’ve got to admire stick-to-itiveness.

1964 video captures Intervarsity’s 7th christian foreign mission conference

Photo credit ivnorthflorida.org

Since 1946 InterVarsity has been providing a place for college students to see, hear, and respond to God’s global mission at Urbana conferences.  At Urbana students will learn about critical global issues from dynamic teachers, worship with thousands in one of the most diverse gatherings in North America, and be challenged by missional students and recent graduates who testify to God’s faithfulness to the ends of the earth.

This video below is a 16mm Ken Anderson film that captures the christian foreign missions mood of the churches in the tumultuous 60’s. At this convention, the students streamed in onto the campus of Illinois University from every state and province in the US and Canada, and 59 countries of the world (including 200 delegates from China). A harsh appraisal of the harsh realities confronting the church and the unfathomable resources of the power of God was the double barrel thrust that excited students as they weighed the totality of God’s demands on their lives and the harmony that exists between first century christianity and the  20th century world and their place in it.

At a time when protesting students are angrily staging free speech movements, dirty speech movements and free love movements, what is the magnet that draws 7,000 together to consider anything so devastatingly simple as the significance of foreign missions today. It is Intervarsity’s 7th Missionary Convention. The result was mental stimulation. It was positively exhilirating . At a time when our country was exclaiming over student irresponsibility, the atmosphere generated at this conference was one of seriousness and intense dedication, accompanied by wholesome humor and an absence of stuffiness. „Go ahead,” one father said, „but if you decide to become a missionary, don’t bother to come home.”

It was 1946 when Intervarsity launched its unique missionary endeavor. Once in every student generation- became the watchword. 600 attended that initial conclave. The number rose to 1400 at the second session. There were 1700 in 1951. Then with each 3 year span the total continued to rise. From the outset, the aims of the convention were clearly articulated.

Which countries send out the most missionaries? And the top 5 faiths in the world

Photo of Katie Davis – see her story here – The story of Katie Davis: The high school senior who went to Uganda to teach kindergarten for 10 months and stayed to be mom to 13 orphans and to serve the people of Uganda

The Center for the Study of Global Christianity (CSGC) at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary calculates that Christians sent out approximately 400,000 international missionaries in 2010. And nearly half of the world’s top missionary-sending countries are now located in the global South.

The CSGC reports that „of the ten countries sending the most missionaries in 2010, three were in the global South: Brazil, South Korea, and India.” Other notable missionary senders included South Africa, the Philippines, Mexico, China, Colombia, and Nigeria.

However, the United States still tops the chart by far in terms of total missionaries, sending 127,000 in 2010 compared to the 34,000 sent by No. 2-ranked Brazil.

……

The CSGC also estimates that in just seven years, more than 9 in 10 people in the world will be religious, up 2 percent over similar data collected in 2010. It predicts that Christianity will be only the fifth-fastest growing religion in the world, coming in behind the Baha’i faith, Islam, Sikhism, and Jainism.

Suicide rates in the US outpaced car accident deaths in 2010

Hebrews 9:27-28
Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, 28 so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.

Romans 1:16
I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes…

Titus 2:11
For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.

A very simple statistic from Albert Mohler on Facebook today startled my heart:

In 2010, 33,687 Americans died in a car accident. That same year, 38,364 Americans committed suicide. God help us. [Harper’s Index]

What’s our excuse for not sharing the Gospel???
