God also commanded both of them to procreate and have dominion over all that he has created. God made the family in a way that each party have their roles. The husband has his roles. The wife has her roles. The children also have their roles.

Seminar: God’s Plan for your Family By Mrs Sophia Moore - MFM Providence Pavilion of Praise RI

Seminar organized by MFM Ministries Providence Pavilion of Praise Branch in Rhode Island was a huge success. Special topics of discussion were:  How does God define Family?  Why are the Men leaving the Church?  The Importance of Raising Healthy Children  Restore your family to God’s original plan  Roles of fathers and mothers  Roles of the children  Causes of Family breakdown  10 Facts about Marriage

Brethren from our other branches turned up to support us. There is this knowledge with men that a family can survive without a nation but a nation cannot survive without a family. WHY? It is the family which makes the nation. Have you ever wondered why God refers to his children as nations. The word of God says "Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you." Exodus 20:12. hen

you

look

everywhere

today, many have gone astray. Children have no respect for the parents and they are not fulfilling the conditions of long life. The devil dislikes the family hence the attacks on the homes of believers. He has a wicked hatred for anything that is of the Lord. He has perfected his three fold ministry which are; TO STEAL - TO KILL - TO DESTROY. Jesus already gave us an insight into this and warned us not to put asunder anything God has joined together. The enemies are always looking for ways to disobey God in every area.

FASTING: MFM BROCKTON MA SEMINAR NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS THE BODY - Fasting allows the body to most effectively remove these waste products. The body is designed to fast; we do it every night. Many men and women experience detoxing from caffeine, chemicals and sugar. The symptoms are most often headaches, leg cramps, fatigue and malaise. THE SOUL - The soul is the seat of our emotions, intellect, personality and will. It is in the “soulish realm” where we experience cravings, frustration, anger . . . and even happiness.

THE SPIRIT - Our spirit is filled with the Holy Spirit HEALTH CONCERN - If you are Diabetic, you may need to add more carbohydrates or include chicken and fish. Pregnant and nursing mothers might get instructions to add fish,

The Food we eat

chicken and cheese. Fasting is not a weight loss tool. Fasting slows your metabolic rate down How does fasting remove toxins from the body? When you go without eating for more than a day or two, the body enters into ketosis. Ketosis occurs when the body runs out of carbohydrates to burn for energy, so it burns fat. And the fat is where the body stores many of the toxins it absorbs from the environment Fasting is also required to get accurate readings for certain medical tests. Continued on page 11

HOW DOES GOD DEFINE THE FAMILY By Brother Yemi Johnson

Without a man and a woman coming together in marriage, there is no family. The basis of a family is a man and a woman in order to reproduce Genesis 1:27 - 28 amily is a God institution not one designed by men.

FASTING

God’s Plan for your Family f one has a proper family unit, then the children will have a better and clear understanding of God, His church and His authority. If the children never learn to respect their parents, whom they live with, then how are they going to learn to respect God whom they cannot see? When parents teach their children that there is authority, responsibility and consequences for wrong actions, the children will much more quickly understand who God is and the authority He has in our lives. Many of the excerpts are from The Home under Fire MFM Ministries Spiritual Hospital Lectures by various ministers of God at the Headquarters. Shalom

Fasting advocates also claim that the practice can effectively treat serious health conditions, from arthritis and colitis to heart disease and depression Source WebMD

DOES FASTING KILL? NO! NO! asting is one of the effective tools against cancer for it can slow the growth of cancerous cells. Multiple cycles of fasting with chemotherapy was used experimentally and found to work against those who did not fast. Many do not know that the minute they close their eyes to sleep, they are fasting for the next 8hours to 16 hours. God made it that way in order to work on our bodies.

Abraham and Sarah beget Isaac. Abraham

Hebrew

(Gen.

14:13)

Isaac married Rebecca who was a Syrian. Genesis 25:20 “And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padanaram (land of Syria), the sister to Laban the Syrian”. Isaac and Rebecca beget Jacob. Rebecca was a Syrian. Therefore, Jacob/Israel is half Syrian! Gen. 28:5; Then, Jacob (the half Hebrew, half Syrian) beget children by the Syrian women, Rachael & Leah. Their children would then be 3/4 Syrian! All of the 12 tribes of Israel are 3/4 Syrians. Have you ever wonder why there is a great battle right now in SYRIA? The same

Gen.29:10 And it came to pass, when Jacob saw Rachel the daughter of Laban his mother's brother, and the sheep of Laban his mother's brother, that Jacob went near, and rolled the stone from the well's mouth, and watered the flock of Laban his mother's brother.

ARE YOU REALLY SAVED? If you keep committing the same sin over and over. Salvation is based on repentance. It is based on the belief in the finished works at the Cross of Calvary. The Bible says in Romans 12:2; “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. While we are a new creation in Christ after being saved, we are still confined in the world and in our fleshy bodies that are corrupted with sin. After accepting Christ, the things that you used to do, you will not do them anymore. That behavior change will be noticeable. he Bible says that if you claim to have no sin, the truth is not in you. I hope that helps. God bless. Even though the Bible says we should not judge anyone, yet you still struggle with the same sins over and over. Are you sincerely really saved? Are you working out your Salvation with fear and trembling on daily basis because that of yesterday cannot save you today. Shalom

Did you know that a book is out there teaching children ungodly things, teaching them that it is perfectly normal what they are feeling, with their bodies, with explicit pictures. Teaching them how to touch their bodies. What does a child knows about mas…….tion. Parents do not be ignorant of the devices of the enemies. ABOMINATION has entered the church. Did you know that a school in the suburb of Revere MA recently was teaching the children about Islam and Muslim Religion. That there is no other God except Allah. A parent had to withdraw his child from the school because he is a Christian. The school superintendent explained that it is simply part of the history in that section of the curriculum. WHY CAN’T THEY ALLOW CHRISTIANITY TO BE TAUGHT AS WELL AS PART OF HISTORY?

woman went to the doctors office. She was seen by one of the new doctors, but after about 4 minutes in the examination room, she burst out, screaming as she ran down the hall. An older doctor stopped and asked her what the problem was, and she explained. He had her sit down and relax in another room. The older doctor marched back to the first doctor and demanded, "What's the matter with you? Mrs. Terry is 63 years old, she has four grown children and seven grandchildren, and you told her she was pregnant?" The new doctor smiled smugly as he continued to write on his clipboard. "Cured her hiccups though, didn't it?"
