[What a wonderful freedom we have, to assemble with family and friends and WORSHIP OUR ABBA FATHER and OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST as we are LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD WITHIN US! We can do this each Sunday in the USA without the fear of being arrested or harassed! Thank God for the freedom of religion!]

“Again, the devil took him (Jesus) to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.” Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND SERVEHIM ONLY.‘” (Matt. 4:8-10)

[Fenggang Yang, Professor of Sociology and the Director of the Center of Religion and Chinese Society at Purdue University has estimated China will be the largest Christian nation in the world by 2030 topping over 250 million believers per his growth projections.And yes, God’s name, is not allowed to be preached, to even appear in any public square, even the government sanctioned churches cannot do advertisements and no Bible is allowed to be sold from any public book store, so you’re not really allowed to evangelize outside of the government church buildings—yet there are true, Bible, faithful believers who have been knowing the risk of being persecuted; they continue to travel from village to another, from one factory to another shop, to share this gospel and, and I think in spite of all this persecution.” O HOW I THANK GOD FOR OUR FREEDOM IN THE USA!]

“Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ…FOR HE CHOSE US IN HIM before the creation of the world TO BE HOLY AND BLAMELESS IN HIS SIGHT. In love, he predestined us for ADOPTION TO SONSHIP through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will…”(Eph. 1:2-6)

[Today many all around the world will begin a period of 21 days of fasting and prayer. This would be an opportune time to give thanks for our freedom to serve and worship God AS WECONNECT WITH HIM during this time of dedication.]

“And WHENEVER YOU ARE FASTING, do not look gloomy and sour and dreary like the hypocrites…But when you fast, perfume your head and wash your face, So, that your fasting may not be noticed by men but BY YOUR FATHER, who sees in secret; and your Father, WHO SEES IN SECRET, WILL REWARD YOU IN THE OPEN.” (Matt. 6:16-18) “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and BREAK EVERY YOKE (burden)? (Isa. 58:6)

[Wonderful things will happen as we dedicate our lives to the Lord in PRAYER and FASTING!]

“Then [after fasting] your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will gobefore you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the LORD WILL ANSWER; you will cry for help, and he will say: HERE AM I…” (Isa. 58:8-9)

[Notice, Jesus says WHEN we fast, we will cry out (IN PRAYER) to God and HE WILLANSWER!]

Be blessed as you praise The Lord, knowing that:
