1  Prayer / Prayer Requests / elders' ordaine on: April 07, 2005, 05:23:40 AM
Our church is pretty young and we do not have the elders who was ordained
We started the program to prepare our church for confirmation of elders and ordaine them.
So the last Sunday it was teaching about elder’s qualifications.
And in this Sunday we are going  to announce people which we recommend.
We are going to teach two lessons more – about role, responsibility elders and relationship between elders and members of church.
So please pray for our church and me. I am the one who is the recommend.

3  Prayer / Prayer Requests / God do some work in his life on: March 31, 2005, 02:16:05 AM
Yesterday I had a meeting with my old friend. I feel big sadness and pain about his. Sad
I do not know is he a true believer or not. But I feel that God do some work in his life.
Some years ago he repented and was baptized. But now he live as a non-Christian.   I spoke with him and he have not peace  in life but in other hand he do not want to obey God. So he feel that all is incorrectly in life but can not to leave sin.
I believe only God has all  power. So please pray for him. May God lead him, give the power against sin and  revival. Or give him a new bourn (if he never was)
The name of me friend is just like me - Ivan

this is what one my friend send me

Nothing should be more important to you or to the person you marry than your spiritual well-being. Abraham knew that. He had his servant travel a great distance (over 400 miles) to find a spiritually compatible bride for his son. It wasn't simply that he was a protective and controlling father--he knew the lasting significance of marriage. Genesis 24 helps us to understand why.
Abraham gave his servant (probably his faithful old servant, Eliezer, mentioned in 15:2) these strict orders: "You will not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell; but you shall go to my country and to my kindred, and take a wife for my son Isaac" (vv.3-4). The Canaanites were notorious idolaters of the basest kind. Their gods and goddesses promoted worship that included human sacrifices and fertility rites with perverse sex.
Okay, so maybe the person you've been dating doesn't go to a church that promotes human sacrifices or sexual rituals and doesn't worship fertility gods. The issue, though, is who he is worshiping. Does the person in whom you have a romantic interest know Jesus Christ as Savior? And is that person living for Him? Modern-day Canaanites are not always so obviously pagan. They can appear religious in a positive sense, but being religious is not enough.
Second Corinthians 6:14-15 states, "Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?" (NIV). When the apostle Paul wrote those words, he was not speaking specifically of marriage, but the principle certainly applies. A person who puts his faith in Christ is born again (Jn. 3:3-16), and "if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation" (2 Cor. 5:17). Such a radical transformation of our inner spiritual being should have a profound impact on our priorities, our goals, our lifestyles, and our relationships.
First Corinthians 7:39 indicates that a widow, if she chooses to remarry, should marry a man who is "in the Lord." He must be a believer, a person who lives by faith in Jesus Christ. It makes sense that this applies not only to widows but to anyone who is considering marriage.
The law God gave to Moses contained prohibitions against intermarrying with the pagans of the surrounding nations. Deuteronomy 7:3-4 states, "Nor shall you make marriages with them. . . . For they will turn your sons away from following Me, to serve other gods."
Even though Solomon knew better, he misused his kingly prerogatives and married all sorts of foreign wives who served idols. As a result, "when Solomon was old, . . . his wives turned his heart after other gods; and his heart was not loyal to the Lord his God" (1 Ki. 11:4). Both Solomon and the whole nation suffered (vv.11-13).
Throughout Israel's history, when the people married unbelieving pagans, there was a profound, negative influence on the Israelites. Even after their punishment at the hands of foreign armies, the Jews who returned to Jerusalem had to be rebuked by both Ezra and Nehemiah (Ezra 910; Neh. 13:23-27), and later by Malachi (2:11-12). Love, lust, and circumstances blinded them to what they knew was right and wrong.
We must be on guard against the temptation to overlook this most basic issue of spiritual compatibility. Just because the other person is "gorgeous," "a hunk," "kind and considerate," or seems to be "genuinely in love with me," don't allow feelings to lead you to trample on your relationship with the Lord.
Even though the apostles Paul and Peter spoke of the possibility of winning an unbelieving spouse to the Lord (1 Cor. 7:12-16; 1 Pet. 3:1-2), that does not mean we should go into marriage knowing we are spiritually incompatible. A believer who marries an unbeliever may be facing a lifetime of spiritual unrest in the marriage and a battle for the spiritual well-being of their children.
This is what I would like for you to think over. Why do some Christians choose to marry an unbeliever even though they know it's not right? What areas of conflict could develop in a marriage if the two are not believers? What effect could this type of marriage have on the faith of their children as they grow up?

Thank you and praise God for all that you do in my life, my dear friends and teachers. I’m very happy and proud that the Lord gave me a chance to become a student of BCS. For one year of studying at your school I learnt many useful things for myself, I opened the world of God, His love and goodness. I used to know almost nothing before, and it was hard to make my way through the Word of God, I also knew nothing from the history of Christianity. But due to God’s mercy and your participation in my life many things changed and I started looking at life and at the world that surrounds me in a new way.


All Glory TO GOD

13  Prayer / Prayer Requests / I was very excited to find the Bible on: February 10, 2005, 07:44:13 AM
This is the letter from student of our bible correspondent school.

First of all thank you for the Bible you sent me. On that day when the postman delivered mail to my apartment I was very excited to find the Bible among other mail. My joy knew no bounds! I am very thankful to you and to God for giving me this precious book. Praise God! I thank you for your kindness. May God bless you abundantly in your work. Snezhana Bortnik, Rovno area.,  


So I ask you pray for people in the world who do not have the Holy Bible.

Mat 9:6 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.
Jhn 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am [he], ye shall die in your sins.
Luk 5:17 When Jesus saw how much faith they had, he said to the crippled man, "My friend, your sins are forgiven."
The Pharisees and the experts began arguing, "Jesus must think he is God!  Only God can forgive sins."
Luk 5:20 And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.
Luk 7:47 Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, [the same] loveth little.
Luk 7:48 And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.
I think that only God can pay the price for our sins and redeems us.
So if Christ is not God we are in our sins yet.
This is the importance.
