GNN DEVOTIONAL GNN DEVOTIONAL GNN DEVOTION

WRITTEN BY: PASTOR STEVE GESUALDI

It’s time to pray.

As I write that statement, I think it’s the most ridiculous thing to ever have to say. Not because it isn’t true, it is time to pray, but when has it ever not been? This is where the ‘pray without ceasing’ comes into play. There has never been a time in human history where we were ever meant to stop praying. I think in all my years of being in church, I have repeatedly heard it said that prayer is the most neglected activity in the church but yet the most important. “Prayer is hard work” is often expressed. However, I’ve come to realize that it is only hard work when it is viewed as a religious activity and not as a relational one. Prayer is only hard work if we are trying to force something, trying to do it in our own power. I believe that we all have the capacity to pray. Deep down, I believe everyone wants to be that prayer warrior that gets up at dawn and prays till late morning. Being that prayer champion however does not come naturally, for the Bible explains that “the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak” Matthew 26:41. It's striking because there is a part of us that wants to pray, wants to be heard, wants to see amazing things take place. I think we tend to give up because sometimes things move slowly, to what we would believe to be an imperceivable pace. If only we understood the intricacies and complexities that surround the situations we’re praying for. We wouldn't stop until we saw things through, no matter how long it took.That is why we must ask the Lord for a powerful unction to pray. God not only loves to hear us pray but He helps us pray. If you’ve been around Good News Chapel long enough, you’ve heard it said that the Spirit helps us pray, a reference to Romans 8:26: “In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groaning too deep for words.”

What an amazing thought! A truth that has completely changed my Christian walk is the reality that God equips and helps us to accomplish everything that He asks of us. “I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication” (Zechariah 12:10). If God will do this for Israel, don’t you think He will or has already done it for us who are in Christ Jesus? “In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people” (Acts 2:17). That same Spirit, God’s Holy Spirit, that has been poured out on the church and upon you and I, is accompanied with the grace to pray. People often make the statement that prayer is like exercising at the gym. Not everyone is motivated at the gym, but what if you had a personal trainer by your side who directs, encourages, helps and empowers you to make it through the session? It becomes something different. Our prayers tend to be one-way. We pray quickly and then we are onto the next thing. But prayer must take time, be intentional and it must be a two-way communication. Are you listening? The next question is, “how do I listen?” Is it just by sitting in a room silently mediating? No, that’s not Scriptural! We meditate on His Word. “Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on His law day and night” (Psalm 1:1-2). This verse lines up with what Jesus said in John 15:7: "If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”

If you stand firm and live in Christ, His Word will remain and firmly live within you. The key to listening is that when you pray, there will be thoughts that go through your mind. But the Word that is in you, that you have read and heard, will confirm some of those thoughts. It will help you distinguish between what God is saying to you or what might just be interference. That’s how relationship and effective prayer is developed. That is what distinguishes prayer that is an exercise and a religious duty from an active, engaged two-way relationship that sees answers. The Bible tells us in James 5:16 that it is “ the effectual, fervent prayer of the righteous that avails much” - not the wishful, dutiful, doubtful, unguided, optimistic prayers of the righteous avail much.

IT IS TIME TO P R AY L I K E NEVER BEFORE; to have an encounter with God and to get more direction from Him! People who have been changed and tempered by prayer will be those that effect change in our world. The time is at hand and prayer is needed!

written by: s.hernandez and s.di francesco

Israel is unlike any country you have ever visited! It is the place where the presence of God dwelled in the Holy Temple, and where the Saviour of the world walked, fulfilling His God-appointed ministry. Israel will not only bring travelers great memories but will forever leave an impression on their hearts and in their spirit. The Israel 2020 trip uncovered the relevance of the geographical places found in the Bible. It also gave us a greater appreciation for what seemed to be minute details of the Word of God, as well as a new perspective to our Christian walk. We hope that the following descriptions give you a glimpse into the Promise Land with the revelation of Hope being an actual person – Jesus.

Although we travelled in the winter season, it did not stop three brave individuals as well as our beloved Pastor Steve to enter the frigid waters of the Jordan River. This is the same body of water where Jesus had been baptized by John the Baptist prior to starting His public ministry. Before anyone was immersed, hymns and songs of praise were raised. Clothed in white gowns and surrounded by their brothers and sisters in Christ, one by one, they entered and publicly confessed their faith to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. That day, they committed and surrendered the rest of their lives fully to Him. As God was pleased with His Son and the dove descended, peace like a river overtook us all that day (Matthew 3:13-4:1, Mark 1:9-11, Luke 3:21-22).

The day we visited the Garden Tomb, just so happened to be the coldest day recorded in Israel in the past seven years. At a shocking zero degrees, 57 people that had packed for warmer weather were covered with thin yet multiple layers, of umbrellas, ponchos, hats and gloves; most of them purchased that very same day. Nothing was going to stop us from visiting this significant and meaningful site. As soon as we walked through the main gates, we saw a garden full of lush trees and cobblestone pathways. Walking along the trail, we met briefly under a covering to learn about the historic importance of the site. When we proceeded to Skull Hill, it was hard for most of us to recognize the face-shaped mount due to the decay of the stone. Just a mere five years ago, the nose had

collapsed and was never restored. Just below was a bus station. Yes, a literal bus station. How could such an important and sacred site be turned into a bus station?! Regardless of the look, this was the place where the Jews believed that Jesus was crucified. Contrary to common belief, Jesus was not crucified atop Golgotha. Instead, we learned He was crucified at the base of it, near the road; This is so He could be mocked, spat on and humiliated by a greater number of people while the weight of humanity’s sins was placed upon His shoulders (Matthew 27:39-44). Our guide gently reminded us that Jesus was humble

enough to endure such a hardship because of the pure love of the Father who desired a relationship with us (Isaiah 53:7). Without a shadow of a doubt, He knew the outcome of His temporary pain and shame would all be worth it. Not far from Golgotha, we visited a tomb that is claimed to be the location where Jesus’ body was placed for three days. It was small enough for only eight people to visit at a time. Most importantly, it was empty! On the third day, we know that Jesus rose and conquered death, Hell and the grave (1 Corinthians 15:55-58). The stone wasn’t rolled away to let Jesus out, it was a way to let humanity in. All glory, honour and praise be unto His Name!

We were privileged to visit Jerusalem, the center of the universe. From every single lookout of this city, there was a mixture of old bricks, new developments and green mountain space. As we walked through the streets of Old Jerusalem, we visited the Upper Room where approximately 120 believers waited for the promised gift of the Holy Spirit as instructed by Jesus (Acts 1:4-5). Entering a room filled with archways, a dome-like ceiling and a couple of stain-glass windows, it was darker than we had expected. Just imagine tongues of fire appearing all over that space and the light it would have brought about in the room (Acts 2:3). With the help of the natural acoustics, our group raised a heavenly Hallelujah towards Heaven, which will remain an unforgettable experience!

“History consists of the events of the past and an interpretation of those events. All too often the facts of the past are meaningless without an adequate interpretation which demonstrates their significance.” — James North We’ve often heard it argued that it is important and beneficial to study history. Being a student of history the majority of my adult life, I wholeheartedly agree with the previous statement. For some, history is perceived as dull and irrelevant, while others do see its value but have never delved into it as a point of study. The truth is, studying history is important because it helps us understand our present; it allows us to make sense of the facts of the past and guides us to better grasp our present. This principle could easily be applied to studying the history of the Church. As Christians, we’ve learnt the stories of the great men and women of the Bible, some of us from our Sunday School days. We’ve learnt the story of Daniel interpreting King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of the large statue. However, if we don’t study history, we miss out on the prophetic importance of this dream. Most of us could recount the story of the birth of Jesus, but if we don’t study the history, we miss out on how God sent his Son at the perfect moment in history (e.g. Pax Romana, roman roads facilitating travel, Alexander the Great spreading the use of the Koine language, and Jewish Messianic expectation). These are but a few examples of how studying history helps us better understand and appreciate the Word. That is why I feel the Church should know about the Church; how did it start, how did it grow, what key events and individuals have shaped Christianity to what it is today? And so, “Acts after the Acts” is born. The Church as we know it today begins in the Book of Acts, but what happened in between the events of the New Testament and today? “Acts after the Acts” will be a recurring series in GNN, guiding us through the history of the Church. In this issue, I will be giving a concise survey of the major periods of the Church, before exploring each of these periods in greater detail in subsequent issues. My goal with this series is not to throw historical facts at you for the sake of it but to teach the Church why we believe what we believe. Most importantly, we will also see how God has been faithful and good to His people in every generation. The story of the Church can be somewhat neatly divided into six distinct periods. The first of these periods is the ‘Apostolic Church’. This is the time of the Book of Acts: the Day of Pentecost, the spreading of the Gospel through apostles like Peter and Paul, and the composing and circulation of the New Testament. With the close of the first century, we see the emergence of the next period in the Church’s history, the period known as the ‘Persecuted Church’. This era is characterized, as its name denotes, by great persecution of the early church by the Roman Empire. This period also had many sects and heresies beginning to emerge. Ironically, this period ends with the legalization of Christianity by Emperor Constantine in 313 A.D.. We then move on to the third period, referred to as the ‘Imperial Church’. This period sees the unification of Church and State, with Christianity becoming the imperial religion of Rome. This period sees the emergence of what we would consider the Roman Catholic Church. During this time, a considerable amount of canonical law is established through councils such as the Council of Nicea. It’s also important to note that this period ends with the Fall of the Western Roman Empire, which has momentous repercussions. We now jump to the fourth and longest period of church history, which is the ‘Medieval Church.' This period covers roughly a thousand years, dating from the Fall of Rome in 476 A.D. to 1453, just a few years shy of Gutenberg printing the first ever copy of the Bible in 1455 (Fun Fact: the Bible is one of the earliest books ever to be printed!).

Key things to point out from this period would be the following: the growth of papal power, the development of monasticism, the Crusades to regain the Holy Land from Islamic rule, the creation of universities and great cathedrals, and the beginnings of religious reforms such as those proposed by John Wyclif. The history of the Church now kicks into high gear with the fifth period, the ‘Reformed Church’. In 1517, Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses on the door of Wittenberg Cathedral in Germany, and subsequently birthed the Reformation. Luther sought to expose and reform the abuses of the Catholic Church and this consequently spread throughout Europe. These calls for reformation resulted into a gradual but cemented schism between the Catholic Church and Protestantism. During and due to the Reformation, there began a re-emergence of active persecution towards both Catholics and Protestants. In Spain, the Inquisition was established to torture and kill Protestants. In France, the Saint Bartholomew’s Day Massacre in 1572 saw the massacre of anywhere between 20 000 to 70 000 Protestants. In England, many Catholics were imprisoned and executed as they were seen as disloyal and a threat to the Protestant Queen Elizabeth I. Other famous figures of this period are John Calvin, Desiderius Erasmus, Thomas Cranmer and many more. Notably, this period also saw a greater push for the translation of the Bible from Latin into the vernacular. The final period of Church history is the one we are living in right now, the ‘Modern Church’. This period spans from 1648 to the present day. Issues such as reformation continue to be a hot topic at the beginning of this period, resulting in the establishment of the Puritan movement in England during the 1650s. Later on, the colonies in North America, especially the United States of America take a leading role in the development of the faith with events like the First Great Awakening in the 1730s and 1740s. The Pentecostal movement then followed in 1906-1909 with the Azusa Street Revivals in Los Angeles. We then see the ministries of some of the generals in the faith such as Smith Wigglesworth (1859-1947), Oral Roberts (1918-2009), Billy Graham (19182018), Lester Sumrall (1913-1996), Kenneth Hagin (1917-2003) and many more. In conclusion, as I’ve highlighted the major historical periods of the Church, I hope I have peeked at your interest, inciting you to learn more about our story as a Church. The many events and notable figures in our history highlight how God has always made a way for the Gospel to spread and for the Church to grow. God has always sustained the Church and will continue to do so until the day Jesus comes back for His bride. There have always been people ready to fulfill the Great Commission and I hope you’re ready to explore this with me. “THEREFORE, SINCE WE HAVE SO GREAT A CLOUD OF WITNESSES SURROUNDING US, LET US ALSO LAY ASIDE EVERY ENCUMBRANCE AND THE SIN WHICH SO EASILY ENTANGLES US, AND LET US RUN WITH ENDURANCE THE RACE THAT IS SET BEFORE US, 2 FIXING OUR EYES ON JESUS, THE AUTHOR AND PERFECTER OF FAITH, WHO FOR THE JOY SET BEFORE HIM ENDURED THE CROSS, DESPISING THE SHAME, AND HAS SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE THRONE OF GOD” (HEBREWS 12: 1-2).

iblical End Time prophecies can be viewed from two different perspectives.The first views Bible prophecies through the lens of current world events.They try to match these events to Scriptures that they have read or heard about. They use this method to determine if the Bible is reliable or not. The second sees these current events from a Biblical perspective. They have some knowledge of Bible prophecy, and see the world events as prophecy being fulfilled. We are a blessed generation living at this time in human history because we have seen prophecies fulfilled that were written approximately 2,700 years ago.Of all the religious books in the world,none of them have any record of prophecies.The Bible is the only book that records over 1,000 prophecies, which were written during the last 6,000 years. Of these prophecies, approximately 500 have been fulfilled to the letter.

Bible Prophecy is Pre-written History. The prophetic events recorded in the Bible were written by men but inspired by God. These were revealed by dreams, visions and dictation.Prophecy is God’s revelation of His plan for mankind. While other religious books outline principles to live by, the Bible sets the course of how to live. It is the only book that the author declares: ​ “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.​” Jesus does not point to the way, but is the Way. All other religious sacred writings are silent on prophecy and direct instructions.However, about 27% of the Bible is of prophetic nature. It is evident that the Author of the Bible, the God of Israel, draws aside the veil of the future to reveal His plan and purpose for the human race. For those who have surrendered their lives to Jesus, the future is bright, clear and offers the Christian the Blessed Hope; the life that follows is better than the present life. 2 Corinthians 5:8 “​We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord​”,In the last 70 years, some of the greatest End Time prophecies have been fulfilled. We have witnessed events that the previous generation preached and taught. The fulfillment of these events seemed to be too difficult to understand.

THE STATE OF ISRAEL BORN IN ONE DAY, MAY 14TH 1948 (​ISAIAH 66:8​) THE REUNIFICATION OF JERUSALEM, 1967 THE CONTINUAL RETURN OF THE JEWS TO THE LAND OF ISRAEL (ALIYAH) JERUSALEM BECOMES THE CAPITAL OF ISRAEL (MAY 14, 2018) JERUSALEM, THE CUP OF TREMBLING, THE LAND DISPUTED BY THE THREE WORLD RELIGIONS: ISLAM, JUDAISM AND CHRISTIANITY (ROMAN CATHOLIC AND GREEK ORTHODOX)

THE REVIVAL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE (ECU) (​DAN.2:40-44; 7:23-24​)

THE PROPHECIES FOUND IN THESE SCRIPTURES (​Matthew. 24:6-8​; ​Luke 17:22-37) ​describe the state of the world before the return of Jesus: world instability, nation turning against nation, economic instability, an increase in epidemics that will affect the entire world, and natural disasters becoming more frequent. I hope and pray that this brief teaching will cause you to see world events through the lens of God’s Word.

I used to love posting Christian quotes. I would read something that sounded good, and I shared it. But what I didn’t realize is that the majority of quotes out there aren’t really biblical. Most quotes are written as a way of trying to explain the difficulties that we face as Christians. They’re often based on emotion or in reaction to an experience. Here’s one that I used to like: “You can’t see the promised land without the wilderness.” Do we understand why the Israelites had to wander in the desert for 40 years, a journey that should have taken 11 days? “Not one of those who saw my glory and the signs I performed in Egypt and in the wilderness but who disobeyed me and tested me ten times, not one of them will ever see the land I promised on oath to their ancestors. No one who has treated me with contempt will ever see it.”​ – Numbers 14:22-23 God had not sent the Holy Spirit yet. Jesus hadn’t been sacrificed once and for all yet. The Israelites disobeyed God, they built idols, they doubted God’s power, and they lacked faith. In fact, God purposely led them to a longer way to start off the journey. Why? Because He knew they didn’t believe that He would deliver them. “When Pharaoh let the people go, God did not lead them along the road through the land of the Philistines, though it was shorter. For God said, “If the people face war, they might change their minds and return to Egypt.”​– Exodus 13:17 We’ll never know what would have happened if the Israelites actually trusted God and obeyed Him.Where in the Scriptures does a child of God, filled with the Holy Spirit, walking in faith, living in accordance with the Word of God, and obeying His commands is left trudging through some never-ending wilderness? (And no, I don’t mean being persecuted for their faith). Why are we constantly embracing the hard, difficult journey? We get more excited about fighting through a period in the wilderness than we do actually living in the promised land.

Psalm 23 says, “when I walk t​hrough​the valley.” Paul praised his way o ​ ut​of prison. Daniel was in the lion's den one night and he was never harmed. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego came out of the fiery furnace the same day they were put in, with not a hair on their heads burned. NEVER FORGET: BECAUSE THE POWER OF GOD,THROUGH HIS SPIRIT, IS LIVING IN US, WE HAVE DOMINION OVER THE ATTACK OF THE ENEMY. “The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.”​– Romans 16:20 “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.”​– Luke 10:19 We have no problem accepting the things that the Devil uses to destroy us. We own sickness, depression, anxiety, fear, and discouragement. But when God has good gifts for us, we say, “no I don’t believe in that. God doesn’t want to prosper us, that’s heresy. God doesn’t want to heal us, that’s not for today.” We’re even reluctant to embrace the gift of the Holy Spirit. “So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask Him.”​– Matthew 7:11 When the Spirit moves, we immediately assume it can’t be of God. But when the Devil buries us with trials, we wrap our arms around them. We would rather believe that God would send struggle to teach us a lesson, than believe He wants to deliver us from the grip of the enemy. “But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.” – 2 Thessalonians 3:3 Why? Because our faith is so easily shaken. We see too much pain and struggle around us, and not enough miracles. We don’t see miracles because we don’t have the faith to believe it’s possible. We operate with a weak, watered down version of faith, so much so that when anyone rises up with an increased level of faith to claim God’s promises, we label them a false teacher. NEVER FORGET: OUR CIRCUMSTANCES WILL NOT CHANGE THE PROMISES OF GOD. When Peter stepped out onto the water, he stepped out with a heart full of faith. But as soon as he began to look around, and saw the wind and the waves, his faith crumbled. “Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”​ – Matthew 14:29-31

WHEN YOU BECOME A CHILD OF GOD, YOU HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR ADDRESS. YOU DON’T LIVE IN THE VALLEY ANYMORE. YOU MIGHT BE PASSING THROUGH BUT YOU CAN’T STAY THERE. It’s not where you belong. God wants to set you on the mountaintop. He wants to take you from glory to glory, and from strength to strength and from everlasting to everlasting.

The Bible teaches that doubt is like being double-minded, which in the Greek translation means to “waver, to be uncertain or half-hearted”. “But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.”​– James 1:6-8

“Put God to the test and see how kind He is. See for yourself the way His mercies shower down on all who trust in Him. If you belong to the Lord, reverence him; for everyone who does this has everything he needs. Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those of us who obey the Lord will never lack any good thing.”​ – Psalm 34:8-10

Faith always looks beyond the natural, because faith operates in the supernatural. Our minds can never comprehend it. If we try to define faith with our human brains, we’ll never figure it out. When we try to use intellect to explain the spiritual, we’ll end up pushing the Spirit out because it doesn’t make sense. What happened when the disciples were in a boat facing the storm? Did Jesus tell them, “well this is good for you, it’s going to help build your faith. Can’t have a testimony without a test.”No! He rebuked the storm and commanded it to be still.

14

“He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.”​ – Matthew 8:26. One of the most misquoted verses in the Bible is Exodus 14:14: ​“The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still.”​But keep reading. “Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground.”​– Exodus 14:15-16 We need to shed this mindset of hanging out in the desert, and thinking that it’s God’s will for us to be there. No, we need to get moving, activate our faith, and believe that God will always deliver us. And even beyond that, understand our inheritance as a child of God, that the devil can’t touch us. “If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.”​– Psalm 91:9-10 Being a Christian doesn’t guarantee a perfect life. There is an enemy of our souls looking to take us down. There is a promise of persecution that will test our faith. But that can’t be our focus. We can’t live waiting around for trouble to befall us. “For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world.”​ – I John 5:4 We are victorious. Through Christ Jesus and the power of the Spirit, we are strong in might. We don’t need to be rescued, because we were already bought with a price. “FINALLY, BE STRONG IN THE LORD AND IN HIS MIGHTY POWER. PUT ON THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD, SO THAT YOU CAN TAKE YOUR STAND AGAINST THE DEVIL’S SCHEMES.”​ – EPHESIANS 6:10-11


GN CY

By Pastor Carlo

The last thing someone should do is to build their house on sand. Sand is not a solid foundation because it is very soft and cannot hold too much weight without moving or crumbling. Building a house on sand is dangerous and unwise.

There are 2 main points that I want you to remember when reading these verses; Obedience and Disobedience.

This is why when we build a home, we look for a solid foundation to build it on. For example, rock. Rock is a very solid foundation for someone to build a house on. Unlike sand, it is stable and it won’t move or crumble. We see a great example of this in the verses below:

Jesus talks about the benefits of being obedient to His teachings. He says, if you remain obedient, you will be like a person who builds a house on solid rock and many storms can come but your house will not collapse.

Matthew 7: 24-27 says: “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in currents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on a solid foundation. But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house onsand. When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”

Obedience = wisdom & Disobedience = foolishness.

We can also see the disadvantages of being disobedient in His teachings. Jesus says in verse 26 that anyone who hears my teachings and doesn’t obey them is foolish like a person who builds his house on sand. I mentioned earlier that sand is very soft and crumbles under pressure. When storms come, it will collapse with a mighty crash. I encourage you today, if you're reading this devotional and you feel that you haven’t been obedient to His teachings it's not too late to start now. Keep listening to the teachings of Jesus because as you do, you will become wiser.

You will be able to withstand any storm that life can throw at you because your foundation will not be built on sand but instead it will be built on the ROCK which is the Word of God. There is absolutely no stronger foundation that you can build your life on. The Bible says in Psalms 128:1

“Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him.”

GNC MUSIC: An Interview With Pastor Jessica By the en d of 2020, G NC M us ic will hav e f o u r o r i g i n a l s i n g l e s r e l e a s e d .

How did Good News Chapel Music and its first songs come about? What has the journey of going from a church worship team to songwriters looked like​?

I think GNC Music was a long time coming and we’ve only just begun! God put a love for music in my heart from a young age and I have been singing, playing and writing songs to God in private since I was a kid. To be honest, at a certain point, I felt God speaking to me “if not now, then when?” So I timidly decided to move forward by speaking out loud the dreams that God had put in my heart. As soon as I did that, I miraculously saw the hand of God orchestrate all the details. God brought wonderful people to come alongside us and help everything come to pass. God also put the same dream in the heart of others who have contributed and will be contributing in the future. God is so good!

What is the vision behind Good News Chapel Music? Why record and release original music?

At GNC Music, we desire to make music that touches the heart of God and also the people who listen in and sing along. I love God and I love His presence. We decided to record these songs and release them along with the free chord sheets because we want to share them with as many as we can. Our hope is that they can play and sing these songs with their congregations. We want to release our unique sound from Good News Chapel and have it travel to places that we may never go in person. God is raising up people at GNC who have a message and a musical talent and most importantly, a heart for Him and His people. Our prayer is that God will help us to create beautiful lyrics, melodies and music and anoint them by His Spirit, that they would go out and bring a great blessing to every listener and participant!

Do you feel GNC’s congregation play a part in how and what type of songs you and the team have written?

Yes! It is impossible to separate the songs in our hearts from what is going on in our lives as members of the Good News Chapel family. My favorite thing has always been the sound of many voices singing together in a congregation. I can imagine how God must love it too! Writing music and sharing it publicly can feel very vulnerable. It’s almost as if you’re taking your heart, flipping it inside out and letting everyone see inside. Yet, I felt a push from the Lord to move forward with writing and recording songs so we went ahead by faith. When we began to play and I heard the congregation singing along, smiling and clapping, my heart nearly exploded. It was one of those moments when you know God is telling you that you’re moving in the right direction. The songs that we’ve written and are working on have been done with the ultimate goal of singing them to God with our GNC congregation. Now everyone can listen in! Our music is never meant to be about one particular person, but about the sound that is being released from our local church, Good News Chapel.

What is the plan for Good News Chapel Music in the future?

As God inspires us we are continuing to write! There will be many more songs that come from GNC Music along with many more songwriters, singers and musicians. I am so excited to see what the future will bring as we are faithful to do what God has called us to do. I know as we take what we have and put it into the hands of God, He will do more than we can ask, think or imagine. Greater things are ahead!

Some of you may or may not know my grandmother‘s story but I’ll try to sum up her life as concise as possible. In 1982, after many surgeries, she survived cancer! She used to tell me that when she flatlined on the operating table, she saw beautiful colors and streets of gold that led her to Jesus! Her heart suddenly started beating again and was later discharged from the hospital. She subsequently would always visit her friends, Sorella e Fratello Di Francesco who would always evangelize to her and invited her to Fabre Street Church. One day, she decided to accompany them and that’s when she gave her life to The Lord! Hallelujah! She’s the main reason why several of my family members also serve the Lord! Last summer, she survived multiple heart attacks to the doctor’s surprise. They said that she should have died from the stress it had on her body... we knew better! Mid-October 2019, she fell as she was going up the stairs to go to sleep. No one was home to help her for at least 30 minutes! She shattered her elbow so badly that it took an 8 hour surgery to try to put it back together; she then became bed ridden at Santa Cabrini Hospital. She would have many hallucinations post-surgery which broke our hearts She said that if her heart stopped, she didn’t want to be saved, she just wanted to finally meet Jesus. She was in a lot of pain and lost the desire to be healed. This was unlike the Nonna I knew.After so many years of seeing her so feisty and independent, it was difficult to see her this way. In December 2019, they moved her to another hospital to make her as comfortable as possible as they believed she was pretty much on her deathbed. Anyone who came to see her couldn’t believe that it was her. She could barely open her eyes, she couldn’t speak, she didn’t know what was real or not. Needless to say, we didn’t know how to pray anymore; how can you pray for the healing of someone who said she just wanted to go to heaven?! As of that moment, this was my prayer “Lord, let us not be selfish in what we ask, but let Your Will be done”. It may sound like a cop-out to some, but His will overpowers my will and even my grandmother’s will. From one day to the next (even though we had been praying for months), she opened her eyes and was motioning that she wanted something to eat! She hadn’t spoken, eaten or moved in weeks!! It was as though the Lord breathed new breath into her lungs! Can I get a witness?! Since then, she’s been getting stronger and stronger! [praise] In February 2020, they switched her to Angelica Residence and although she was

For those of you who may not know, I am the co-owner of a café named Baristello & Cie.During the COVID-19 lockdown, many businesses like mine began to suffer. Many cafés were forced to close or had to change to pick up or delivery only, which was stunting their business. I began to wonder what we should do, and at times, worry did start to creep up on me. I found myself calculating how long we can coast before there would be a real threat to our business. When those thoughts began to enter me, I had to make a decision; either I would trust and stand on the Word of God and His promises or not. I began to fill myself with the Word and declare His promises over myself and my business. I held onto the promises of Deuteronomy 7, that the Lord would protect, keep and multiply us. After closing for 2 weeks to strategize and work on our website, we re-opened at the beginning of April. From the day we re-opened, business has not slowed down but actually has grown. We are taking in more income and selling higher volumes than we did before COVID-19! Even during the 2 weeks that we were closed, we still had great numbers due to clients ordering online! In the midst of failing and struggling businesses, we are thriving and are seeing the fruit of ideas and plans I had years ago! None of our success is due to human knowledge or wisdom, it’s not because

unable to walk, they would place her in a wheelchair and bring her to the cafeteria to be in contact with people. She really enjoyed that. Eventually, she would sit in her wheelchair and scurry along with her feet.The doctors were in shock! They needed to put a device on her wheelchair to keep her from trying to escape to the elevators! She was so determined, she would even attempt to stand up, which led her to fall a few times, and when the nurses would reprimand her, she would say “Booboos happen!” Her spunk was back and stronger than ever. She just wanted to get better and go back home! Fast-forward to April 2020, the nurses had said that her roommate tested positive for COVID, so they tested her as well. When I learned about this, I quickly asked a few trusted people to join with me in prayer; not only would my grandmother not be affected, but that The Lord would reverse her roommate’s results as well! I said “Lord, there’s no way that You brought her back to life so she could be taken by this virus!” The very next day, we were told by the nurse that they don’t know how it happened but they read the roommate’s results wrong, and it turned out she actually had tested negative and so was my grandmother! [can I get an AMEN!] They may not know “how”, but we know that it’s the power of God! She may be 87 years old but she’s still His child! With a long life, He will satisfy!! My mom has taken my Nonna out of Angelica and brought her to her home to take care of her. She’s doing great and she’s even walking with the help of a walker! Praise The Lord for continual healing and an outpouring of His love! Lisa Marinelli Di Francesco

we’re great businessmen but because God is faithful and true! All glory and praise belongs to God because He really does stand true to His Word and His promises. So I encourage you today, read and digest Deuteronomy 7 and Psalm 91.

Even if the circumstances around you seem grim and hopeless, put your full trust in God! He will keep you, bless you and prosper you if you love and obey HIm. Jonathan Geronimo

If you were to ask me f ive years ago, “what ministry do you see yourself being involved in at GNC?” photography was the furthest thing f rom my mind. I would have probably answered being involved in children’s ministry or being involved in the church choir but I am thankful God had something completely different in mind. God’s plans are always better t h a n o u r ow n ex p e c t a t i o n s . Proverbs 16:9 became a verse in which God taught me a valuable lesson. It says “we can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps”. I was always the type of person that made plans f ive or ten years in advance. When they didn’t work out the way I had imagined, I felt like a failure. However, Romans 8:28 states that “God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them”. These two verses taught me that by continually obeying and pursuing Him, nothing that I have experienced or would experience would ever be wasted. I had a change of perspective; I told myself that I would start living a day at a time, taking full advantage of every opportunity that was presented to me. Why worry about tomorrow, “for tomorrow will bring its own worries” (Matthew 6:34. I am so grateful that God taught me this lesson when He did, in His absolute and perfect timing. This was partially the basis of why I tried photography in the f irst place. In late 2015, I was offered an opportunity to take pictures at a church concert. I had no experience, no training and absolutely no idea of what I should be doing. However, I was willing to give it a try. Being a bit of a perfectionist, I was often hard on myself and didn’t like the results of my f irst couple of photography experiences. However, I soon recognized that God had placed within me a passion for it. For the next few months, I researched dozens of articles and websites to train myself in the craft. I even took an introductory night course to get some basic training. I was still, by no means, a professional photographer, but with the help of God and some encouragement f rom my brothers and sisters in Christ, I improved. Photography became a vital ministry at Good News Chapel. The church needed pictures for multiple platforms, such as their website, their Instagram and Facebook accounts, as well as GNN magazine that you are currently reading. In today’s day and age, media is an essential form of communication. Photos as well as video footage can serve as a memory to be kept; it is a way of sharing a moment with others, of remembering a piece of what we have already experienced. Being a part of the media team is such a privilege and I do not take it for granted. It is so rewarding to be a part of God’s purpose and what He is doing in the lives of His people and His church. Every time I serve on the GNC photography team, I am in awe of God’s love and His power. I have witnessed changed hearts, the move of the Holy Spirit and the magnitude of the love of God has for His children right before my eyes. There is something so beautiful about catching a fleeting moment in time, especially when it is capturing the relationship between God-fearing believers and their Heavenly Father. God started opening doors for me, not only within the photography ministry at GNC but also as a means to start a part-time photography business. Through only word of mouth, people approached me to photograph special events, engagement photos and weddings As a result of the contracts I received, I earned enough money to invest into another life-long passion of mine: travel. God always knew the

desires of my heart. He knew I wanted to see the world; I wanted to experience different cultures, to see ancient architecture and to travel to a time that was not my own. So far, He has been so faithful in taking me to a variety of countries in Europe as well as, most recently, Israel. In all of my travels, I have felt the goodness of God, His protection and His blessing. Never would I have thought He would give me access to my dreams by means of giving me a passion for photography. In conclusion, if you are a part of the GNC family, I just want to encourage you to get involved and start serving in a ministry. As children of God, He has given each one of us a specif ic or multiple gifts to expand His kingdom and to edify the Church. In 1 Corinthians 12:12-31, Paul describes the church as the body of Christ and how each and every part has a vital purpose; even the parts that may appear to be less signif icant than others. You may not have much experience or knowledge in something, you may not even feel worthy of being in a certain position of ministry but if you are willing and passionate to serve, God will use you in a mighty way! If you continually serve and obey Him, pursue His will and build His house, He will never fail you! I know that as I have served at GNC, God has helped me through my initial lack of qualif ications, my insecurities and my doubt. Not only has God developed a new passion within me but He has also blessed me beyond measure. If He’s done it for me, He can undoubtedly do it for you! He is so good and wants to share His love and blessings with you, like a father would to his child! Don’t pass up on the opportunity to be a blessing unto Him and to His Kingdom. I guarantee you, you will not regret it. His plans never fail and always leave you and those around you in utter amazement. Trust Him in getting the picture perfect plan for your life.

REA D ACTS 9 : 1-31

GOD CAN USE YOU!

We are going to be learning about a man named Saul who was from a city called Tarsus. Saul was a really mean man and he hated everyone who followed Jesus. He wanted to put Christians in jail, beat them up and even kill them. One day as he was heading to Damascus to go arrest more believers, a very bright light from Heaven shone on him. Saul fell to the ground and he heard a voice saying,“Saul, Saul! Why are you persecuting/going against me? Saul asked, “Who are you, lord?” The voice said, “I am Jesus, the One you are going against. Get up and go into the city, and you will be told what to do” The men that were with Saul were surprised because all they heard a voice but saw no one! Saul then got up and opened his eyes but when he did that he couldn’t see a thing! He was blind. The men that were with him helped him and guided him to Damascus. For three days, he couldn’t see and he didn’t eat or drink. There was a believer in Damascus named Ananias. God spoke to him and said, “Go over to Straight Street and when you get there, ask for a man named Saul. He is praying to me right now. I gave him a

vision that you would go see him and lay your hands on him so that he will see again.”Ananias said, “But God, isn’t that the man who has done so many bad things to the believers. He has arrested so many people who follow You!” But God said, “Go, I have chosen Saul to take my message to the Gentiles, to kings and to the people of Israel.”Ananias listened to God and went to find Saul. Ananias laid his hand on Saul and said, “Brother, the Lord Jesus who you saw on the road to Damascus sent me here so that you might see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” Immediately scales fell off the eyes of Saul and he was able to see again. After that, he was baptized. Saul stayed with the believers in Damascus and he started to preach about Jesus right away! The believers couldn’t believe that the man who used to hate them was now preaching about Jesus. When Saul was heading to Damascus, he was planning on arresting the followers of Jesus but God changed Saul’s heart. God was going to use him to preach about Jesus! Saul stayed with the apostles and began to preach all around Jerusalem with bold-

ness! Later on, Saul changed his name to Paul; God used Paul in a mighty way. He went all over telling people about Jesus. He preached and wrote letters to churches, kings and all kinds of people to tell them about living for Jesus. He followed God faithfully in every area of his life.Saul had an ENCOUNTER with Jesus and his life was never the same.Saul was the most unlikely person to be used by God, even Anaiais knew that. He knew that Saul was someone who hated Christians and yet God changed his heart and used Him in a great way! God wants to use each and every one of you! You will have people who say that you are just a kid and too young to be used by God. Well I am here to tell you that Jesus can take the youngest person, the most unlikely person and use them for great things! Jeremiah 29:11 says “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” God has an amazing plan and purpose for each and every one of you! God can use anyone who is willing and wants to follow God with all their heart!

Are you ready to be used by God, just like Saul? Are you ready to say Yes LORD use me? In Isaiah 6:8 it says “Then I heard the Lord asking, "Whom

should I send as a messenger to this people? Who will go for us?" I said, "Here I am. Send me." If you want God to use you in a mighty way, it only takes you to be dedicated and surrendered to what He has for you; surrendered to His will and His Word!

PASTOR JESSICA GESUALDI

In the Bible, ‘The Remnant’ refers to the Jews who had returned from Babylonian captivity. The concept of ‘The Remnant’ continues throughout Scripture as a group of people who have survived adversity and will make it to the promised land. The Remnant are people of intense devotion and people of perseverance; the faithful few! We have adopted this name as our own because we desire to be those who rise above difficulty and enter into the fullness of God’s promises. We will be those who refuse to compromise in temptation and those who refuse to collapse in times of trouble. We will stand for righteousness and truth in the face of an unbelieving generation. We will swim against the current. We will be the believing minority that will overcome! If God is for us, who can be against us? In this unique season of life, I have had a very clear awareness of my need for God’s Word to keep me strong. As I have filled myself continuously with His promises and reminded myself of His faithfulness, He has shown me that there is a divine exemption for the remnant! These truths have kept me from fear and discouragement. I pray He does the same for you! "Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD gave attention and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the LORD and who esteem His name. “They will be Mine,” says the LORD of hosts,​“on the day that I prepare My own possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.” So you will again distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him." ​MALACHI 3:16-18

1. YOU ARE THE LORD’S PRIZED POSSESSION!

The Lord pays attention to those who honor Him. How wonderful is it to know that we can walk in covenant with God, and He will call us His very own. We are God’s treasure! What do you do with your most prized possession? You protect it, you take care of it, you put it in a special place. This is what God does for us! “Now if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, you will be My treasured possession out of all the nations--for the whole earth is Mine.” E​XODUS 19:5

2. YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD!

As th e n ations of t he ear t h hav e been u n de rgo ing an unpr ecedent ed s hak ing, I h a v e found grea t com fort in the fact that God is my Father. One evening as I was putting my son to sleep, I looked down at his serene, sleeping face and thought, “even with all that’s going on in the world, he doesn’t have a single care.” He never worries about food, clothing or safety, because I have always taken care of all those things for him. I gently felt God reminding me that I should feel the same way, knowing that I am in His loving arms. What a peace that brought to my heart! If I as a human being spend many hours of the day (almost all of my hours!) holding, feeding and making sure my son’s needs are cared for and that he is happy, how much more can our Heavenly Father take care of us with no limitations and impeccable wisdom? I guess the true picture of childlike faith is faith that results in perfect peace. “As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.”​​PSALM 103:13

3. YOU CAN ACCESS DIVINE EXEMPTION

You have chosen not to live like everyone else, so you do not have to suffer with the same things as everyone else! God will spare you! You don’t have to fall victim to the fate of the world. You have a holy immunity to the schemes of the enemy! When others are falling low, God will lift you higher! “Yes, the Almighty will be your defence, and you will have plenty of silver. For then you will have your delight in the Almighty, and will lift up your face unto God. You will make your prayer unto him, and he will hear you, and you will pay your vows. You will also decree a thing, and it will be established: and the light will shine upon your ways. W ​ hen men are cast down, then you will say, There is a lifting up;​ and he will save the humble person. He will deliver the island of the innocent: and it is delivered by the pureness of your hands.” J ​ OB 22:25-30

4. THE LORD IS MY DEFENDER

Our God is the Almighty One! There is nothing too difficult for Him. He is able to protect me from anything that could come my way. There is an evil one who has an agenda in this world, but God is the one who prepares a table for me in the presence of my enemies! He is my source, so I know He will provide for all my needs. (PSALM 23​)

5. THE LORD IS MY DELIGHT

I delight myself in the Lord because He is such a good God. He is so kind to me. No one has loved me the way He does. I can never come to the end of His perfection. I remind myself of all He is and all He has done, and my heart is filled with gratitude. The Bible tells us in Psalm 37:4 that ​if we delight ourselves in the Lord, He will give us our hearts desires! So lift up your face to Him today, seeing Him for all He is!

6. THE WORD IS MY DECLARATION

When I speak the Word of God, I am lining up my words with His, and He can never lie! When I declare His promises, He will be faithful to establish them in my life. He is watching over His Word to perform it. God honors His Word even above His Name (PSALM 138). His faithful promises are my armor and protection! Make sure that His Word constantly fills your mouth, and you will see the evidence of it in your life!

7. THE LORD IS MY DELIVERER

Throughout the Bible, God has shown Himself as a deliverer of His people over and over again, even in the face of the greatest obstacles. You can look at the story of Noah, Moses, Joshua, Esther, Daniel (along with many, many others) and ultimately Jesus! God has not changed! He still knows how to preserve you in the face of evil. He knows how to save you from the most violent storm! He is the One who split the Red Sea, the One who was in the fiery furnace, and the One who calmed the sea. He is the God of miracles! Rejoice in Him today and see Him work on your behalf!

B​ ut now, thus says the LORD, your Creator, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine! “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fiFIre, you will not be scorched, Nor will the Flflame burn you. ​ “ For I am the LORD your God..." -- ISAIAH 43: 1-3
