Dear Friends,

In the last magazine, we saw what a dramatic event had happened, where a person who was close to death, had been healed by our Lord Jesus Christ. In this article, I will be telling you about a breakthrough that had happened in Taylor’s life too. The Lord has said “My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways. For as the Heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Taylor explains that when the Lord gives us great blessings in the best possible way, we often have such unbelieving hearts, like Jacob, from the Old Testament who says “All these things are against me.” We also start to fear like the disciples did when Jesus walked on the sea and often reject God’s blessings due to half-mindedness. I bet that’s what we do 99.9% of our time! However, Taylor also said that one part of our consciousness tells us that He, whose way is perfect, can make no mistake, as He has promised to “perfect that which concerns us”, and even counts the very hairs of our head. It is more than obvious that such Lord must definitely know better than we do!

For some time, Taylor was very ill, and was heading to England, to seek medical treatment, where he was told that his return to China, at least for the years to come, was impossible. Taylor was met with agony and frustration that he became ill when he was meant to be doing work for God. While at home, Taylor came to realise that there were still more missionary work to be done in the regions further inland of China. But, there was nothing for him to do, other than to pray for them. What an annoying moment!

Hudson Taylor the work, trusting in the sure Words of Jesus, who has said “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.” After a few months of earnest prayer, God gave Taylor the opportunity to be able to send 4 missionaries, on behalf of Taylor to China, to do God’s missionary. Taylor’s prayers had been heard, and Taylor had been given the idea of creating a ‘Special Agency’ for the evangelization of China. While considering this, Taylor had many thoughts going on in his mind. One of the thoughts were that most of the missionary workers would be inexperienced, and while in China, amongst the difficulties, dangers and trials, they might break down (give up) and bitterly reproach Taylor for having encouraged them to undertake such work, for which they were not fit. Whoa! That would be really worrying. How would you like it when you’re the one to blame for something that went horribly wrong! Simply because of this thought, Taylor refused to ask for labourers, and so the labourers did not come forward. Yet, the feeling of blood-guiltiness became more and more intense for Taylor. He thought the longer he took to send out labourers (missionary workers) into China, the more thousands of souls were passing away to the burning fire of hell.

Whilst in agony at this thought, Taylor was invited by a friend to Brighton. There, Taylor felt uneasy, and couldn’t bear the sight of a congregation of a thousand or more Christian people rejoicing in their own security, when many people in China were perishing for lack of knowledge. Taylor came out of the service and wandered by himself on the sands, with great spiritual agony, and surrendered himself to God. Taylor told God that all the responsibilities, as to issues and consequences must rest with Him, and that The next question that came to Taylor’s mind was how best to serve as his servant, it was his duty to obey and to follow him- and was His (God’s) duty to direct and to care for and to guide Taylor and those who China while in England, which led to Taylor’s engaging with Rev. Gough, where Taylor had to might labour with him. Taylor then, at once, felt the Peace flow into his burdened heart. Wow, what a relief! We should do the same and commit ourdo the revision (translation) of a version of selves to God, and he will take care of everything too. the New Testament in the colloquial of Ningpo( Chinese dialect) for the British Around a few weeks later, Taylor, with the help of his wife, was able to and Foreign Bible Society. write a little book, called ‘China’s Spiritual Need and Claims’. With the help of another fellow Christian, Taylor was able to print 3,000 copies which were soon put into circulation, for Taylor to be able to attract labourers for the missionary work in China. Taylor also spoke publicly of the proposed While doing studies the work, and after a while many workers were gained, and were ready to be Divine Words and carrying sent off to China, Mongolia and other close by islands and countries. What out the translation, Taylor a satisfying ending! See, I told you that whatever you commit into God’s learnt that the apostolic hands, he will take care of it for you. plan was to go and do

With the 2011-12 season finished, it seems only right to review on players’ performances and players in general. Being played by 250 million players in over 200 different countries worldwide makes it the most commonly played sport in the world as of the year 2000. So it is obviously going to have a BIG influence on the people growing up watching football, mainly young people. Other than playing football and scoring goals on a regular basis, footballers are also a role model for young children and even adults around the world. This can differentiate the good sportsmen from the bad in football. The most common footballers and the most famous footballers earn a minimum of £200,000 per week and over £14 million per season or even more. One of the most influential footballers in the world is Lionel Messi. Lionel Messi is officially the best footballer in the world right now; scoring 169 goals for Barcelona, which is regarded as the best team in the world right now. He is also one of the shortest players in the world being only 5’1’’ which makes him an even better footballer considering his height and achieving all this at only 24 years old. Earning £27.5 million this season, has made him the highest paid footballer, it can be argued that he deserves every penny. As not only is he the best footballer in the world, he is also a great influence on people watching the game as he partakes in lots of charity events for under privileged children and being a major contributor for the ‘Unicef’ charity organisation. This makes him a very good role model for little children.

Another influential player in the game and certainly a footballer we can relate to as Christians is Kaká. His skill and finishing makes him one of the best at the game. Being paid £12.9 million a season makes him one of the highest paid footballers in the world as well. However other than football, he also does a lot of charity work and also helps out in the church that he grew up attending making him an influential sportsman. One thing that these two players have in common that makes them influential and inspiring people is the way they conduct themselves on the pitch. Unnecessary diving, foul language, lying and violence are never seen by both these players making them one of the best sportsmen the game and the world has ever seen.

However, let us not forget that the main person we should strive to be live is our Lord Jesus Christ, as he is the one who is influencing these men in the first place. Yes, we should try to be like these men when we play sports, but in our life we should strive to be more like Jesus Christ.

NEWS FLASH It is a well known fact that Manchester United are one of the BEST teams in the Premier League and in the world, producing some of the best players such as Sir Bobby Charlton, David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, and of course Cristiano Ronaldo. It is also known that they currently have one of the best managers in the world, Sir Alex Ferguson, who in his 26 year managing experience for Manchester United alone since 1986 he has seen 12 Premier League Titles, 5 F.A Cups, and 2 UEFA Champions League Titles to his name with Manchester United, making him one of the best managers in the history of the game.

Pastor killed in rattlesnake attack during church Service.

It is also a known fact that Manchester United has a long term rivalry with another premier league club and neighbouring club, Manchester City. This season (2011-12) there has been an EXTREMELY narrow margin between both clubs fighting for first place in the Barclays Premier League and claiming the Title as the best team in England.

During these late stages of the competition, it is evident watching both teams play that they are both striving with all their might and effort to claim the Title. Manchester City coach Roberto Mancini is a very strict coach who doesn’t take losses too kindly, while Sir Alex Ferguson is a more civilized yet terse coach who keeps his nerve and still gets what he wants and knows EXACTLY what he’s doing and is usually ahead of the game. Right now in this late and crucial stage of the competition, Manchester United holds a 5 point lead against rivals Manchester City. Even with this lead, it is still anyone’s game with the big match between both Manchester United and Manchester City coming up soon which could determine which team claims the league title. So what can we take from this? It is evident that one of these two teams are going to win the league because of their hard effort, so we can say that in everything that we do, we must put all our effort into it so we will get what we want, and we should put our faith in God and trust in Him when we do suchReal things.Story Sometimes what you want might not be what God wants, therefore not service receive it, so you should the and floor next you to might it.

Carbohydrates By Uniqueka

Carbohydrates are an important part of a healthy diet. However, there have been some discussions about the fact that not all carbohydrates are the same. Carbohydrates also known as ‘carbs,’ are your body's energy source and they are a very important part of any healthy diet. Carbohydrates should never be kept away from, but it is important to understand that all carbohydrates are the same. If you eat a lot of carbohydrates the carbohydrates will become fats and might make you gain weight. So the best way to not gain weight is to eat a little bit of each and have a balanced diet.

He commanded his servants to bring new clothes, sandals and a ring for his son. The whole family had a wonderful party to celebrate the return of the son. This story shows how God treats sinners who ask Him for forgiveness of their sins.

God knows that you need a good life, God knows that you need a good education, God Knows that you need a good business, God knows that you need a good job. Seek the kingdom of God then all these things will follow you! Do you know how to seek the kingdom of God? The answer is: follow the word of God. We can only reach the Kingdom of God if we follow His word.

“The law of your mouth is better to me than thousands of coins of gold and silver.”

Psalm 119:72

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for me; because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget you children.”

Hosea 4:6 This word is saying, we have forgotten the law of our God. If there is no Word of God in our heart we are not children of God. If we read this verse, it clearly says that God expects this from us. From now on set a time to read the Bible. If you can’t understand the Old Testament, read the New Testament. And read it again and again... The plans of Christ are far more better than what you dream. God called you to be an example to many people, God called you to rule many people. Therefore the Word of God is very important! Let us take this more seriously, and meditate on the word of God everyday so we can live in the plans that God has created for us.

Many time we think God allow these problems..

Sis Florin

You know one thing... no matter whatever it is.. JESUS Christ has done everything for you! No matter whatever curse.. For all kind of problems Jesus Christ paid for you! Therefore no one can steal your blessings, no one can steal your health, no one can steal the blessings for your family, no one can steal your financial blessings. Christ has done everything for you and everything is prepared for you.. All you have to do.. Go and inherit,

So He asked his father, “how long has that been happening to him” and he said , “from childhood” Mark 9:21

According to this scripture, There was a mute spirit, whenever it seizes him, it throws him down; he foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth, and becomes rigid. The reason of the problem came into his life, to kill his peace, to kill his family, finally to kill this man. When he came to Jesus his way of prayer has changed. Mark 9:22 Have compassion on us and help us If we ask help from our Father who created us, will he say “NO”. No He is willing to help us and he is looking at our heart. Let us pray to help us to take over each and every thing he prepared for us.. Remember!! God never stop our blessings, If you Believe, surly you will see the glory of God.

On 11th February

Many could have said to you that you are unlucky! That is why you lost everything!

We need three main things in our life to have a successful life:

Sometime we think our past sin is the reason for all the problems or many believe that these things are already written in our head!

10

1.

Grace of God

2.

Believe that God has done something for you.

3.

To grow and maintain the blessings, we must have Wisdom to hold onto the blessing


“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourself; It is the gift of God.”

Eph 2:8

On 26th February

Bad news, problems, discouragements, and bad circumstances is what we often face in our everyday lives. This is the reality for many people.

Do you know the size of the sky? If you do then maybe you could measure His grace.

The truth is, what you feel in the world is not reality. But the real reality is, where your faith is and there it works. Having faith in God is not reality.

His grace is just the beginning; it allows you to hold on to the blessing of God. To keep them we need the wisdom of God.

Remember without faith, it is impossible to please Him. This is spirituality which is totally different from reality.

So in order to live a life of blessings we need three main components. Grace, Faith and the Wisdom of God.

We always believe that whatever we see, touch, feel and hear, is reality. But God wants us, not to be in reality but to be in spirituality; to have faith in him! What you see today is not real.

On 19th February

“…God’s word is our delight”

Psalm 119:92. The Word of God has protected us, guided us and kept us from making wrong decisions in our life. Without this, the wrong decisions we make could have destroyed us.

The truth is, reality has got an expiry date. Do you know how?

When life gets tough; we think we cannot control it and that we didn’t have any choice? However spirituality can work, even though things have gone beyond our control.

The righteous men save their wealth for their children. We know that God is more righteous than us so imagine how much God has stored and planned for us.

“…now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”

“Jesus Christ is wonderful, counsellor, prince of peace, mighty God.”

Hebrew 11:1-3

“…but without faith it is impossible to please Him” Isaiah 9:6 Hebrews 11:6 Even though Satan knows that Jesus does all these amazing things he still does not give up his fight against God. We must always remember that Jesus has done everything for us at the cross.

“…disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it”

Colossians 2:15

God will never ever fail us and He rewards those who seek Him. Mathew 5:35-36 in this scripture, we can see that reality is challenging the man to forget about his faith because his daughter is already dead. As soon as Jesus heard this, he said to the ruler of synagogue, “…do not be afraid; only be-

lieve.” So dear beloved, have faith! Jesus has given you life.

“but be of good cheer I have overcome the world.”

John 16:33

Problems come one after the other but we must take the word of God and use it to overcome our problems. By the power of Jesus surely you will win the victorious life.

Do you think that our God who has given his only begotten son will put you to shame?

Reality may challenge us but we must stand against it.

make it as a habit to go to sleep with lions every night.

“He helped me to understand the faith instead of just documenting it,” photographer and eyewitness Lauren Pond told the Washington Post. “He was one of the most open pastors I’ve ever met. He was a friend and a teacher.” “I didn’t see the bite, I saw the aftermath” she added. The group of serpent handlers follow the gospel of Mark, which states: “And these signs will follow those who believe...they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.” What we learn from this Story? The Holy Bible Talks about faith and Pastor Mack Wolford was not practicing the faith but was testing it.

In the Old Testament Daniel was put in a lion's den, but Lions didn’t eat him. Daniel must not 14

Pastor Mack was bitten three time previously and did not get any medical assistance and he was perfectly alright. So those three time he was saved by God. However, Pastor Mack must not make it as a habit. Nature is created by God and they all works under many laws. Pastor Mack was saved 3 times already still he was showing kind of faith testing stunts. “You must not test God" So how the promise of God in Mark 16:17,18 will work? It did work already 3 times in Pastor Mack's life. It taught us all a lessons that we must not test God.

If any of you who believe in God is in a danger situation and could not get any medical help, then you will see these words gospel of Mark 16:17,18 will come alive in your life and save you. you must not forcefully put yourself into such situation, because you will set up bad example to many who do not respect the laws of nature.

We pay our last respect for all good works Pastor Mark and our love and prayers stay with his family and the church members.

Power of Your

Bloodline Red Rum is probably the most famous race horse to ever compete. It has won the Grand National no fewer than three times and has come second twice. The Grand National is known around the world as one of the most dangerous horse races as many horses and jockeys have died while participating.

You can’t take a horse from the local stable and enter it into a race and expect it to win. A race horse is generally a thoroughbred. This means that if you look back over the ancestry or bloodline of the horse you will see generations and generations of race winning horses. Using science and genetics the thoroughbred horses are produced by picking the characteristics that are desirable in the ancestor horses. Red Rum was bred to win; both his father and grandfather are race winning horses.

If you want a race winning horse, you would contact a blood stock analyst, who would study the bloodlines of horses to suggest which horse when mated together will probably produce the desired result. They would look at characteristics like speed, height and stride length. Breeding a thoroughbred horse is a million dollar industry and it has no guarantees but horse trainers are willing to risk huge amounts of money because they know that thoroughbred horses are more likely to win races.

When the foal is born, it is easy to for someone who is untrained to become discouraged, because the new born will be unable to stand and look very small and weak; not characteristics that you would want from a race horse. But the experienced trainers would not be worried, they don’t care what the new born looks like, because they know that this shaky little horse has the same DNA as its many championship winning

Bro.Daniel ancestors. It has winning in the blood. The way that the trainer looks at the horse is the same way as The Lord looks at us. It doesn’t matter what we look like or what we have done, when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, we become children of God. From then on our spiritual DNA traces back to the Almighty God, our Father.

We are no longer ordinary people, we are thoroughbred. Take a look at your spiritual bloodline: 

Moses parted the Red Sea. – There is great faith in your bloodline.

David stood up against Goliath. – There is courage in your bloodline

Samson destroyed a building with his own hands. There is supernatural strength in your bloodline

Nehemiah rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem. – There is perseverance and determination in your bloodline.

Jesus willingly gave his life to save the world. There is great sacrifice and Love in your bloodline

These few examples show that we have a very strong bloodline. This means that we are destined to do great and mighty things. Before we were even born God knew the plans he had for us Psalm 139:16; Jeremiah 1:5


Bad people are often said to have bad blood; if you trace the ancestry of a criminal, chances are you will find another one. It is true that certain traits are passed on through our natural bloodline. For example people often compare their children with past relatives:

We must practice fruit of the spirit in our family. It makes But the good news is that our spiritual bloodline overrides our natural one. myWhen family, we accepted healthier. Christ weYou became can new creations 2Corinthians 5:17. Whatever we did in the past cannot change our spiritual bloodline. Just like the horse trainers pay millions of try it6:20too. dollars for a winning race horse, God paid the highest price for us 1Corinthians NLT He walks like his grandfather or she can draw like her mother.

This Boy was a nice baby in the hand of parents who don't value

Nowtheir evenfamily. though a thoroughbred has a winning bloodline, it wouldn’t win any races if it doesn’t train or work hard. If the owner just put it in the stable and gave it food and shelter it would soon become fat and unhealthy and then the fantastic bloodline will be wasted. In the same way if we don’t catch hold of God’s promises and train ourselves to stop looking at ourselves in a negative manner, our spiritual bloodline will also go to waste.

All the hard work has been done for us, all we have to do is live the life that God has preordained for us. If we push on and expect better things in our life we will give our bloodline the best possible chance to shine in our lives.
