Condition of Blessing

Bring ye all of the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of Heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it” Malachi 3:10
Many read and plead this promise without noticing the condition upon which the blessing is promised. We cannot expect heaven to be opened or blessing poured out unless we pay our dues unto the LORD our God and to His cause. There would be no lack of funds for holy purposes if all professing Christians paid their fair share. Many are poor because they rob God. Many churches also miss the visitation of the Spirit because they starve their ministries. If there is no temporal meat for God’s servants, we need not wonder if their ministry has been little food in it for our souls. When missions pine for means and the work of the LORD is hindered by an empty treasury, how can we look for a large amount of soul-prosperity? Come, come! What have I given of late? Have I been mean to my God? Have I stinted my Savior? This will never do. Let me give my LORD Jesus His tithe by helping the poor and aiding His work, and then l shall prove His power to bless me on a large scale.

Liberia Christian School

Last Wednesday, at our Bible Study and Prayer, we focused our meeting on the FPC Mission in Liberia. We viewed a video from missionary Miss Joanne Greer sharing her burden to start a Christian school. The FPCNA Mission Board recently approved the launch of a 5-year pilot program with a start date of September 2021. It is estimated that $40,000 USD needs to be raised to help with a building rental and initial classroom and office setup costs. If the Lord is leading you to give an extra donation towards this project, you can designate your offering for the ‘Liberia Christian School.’

For anyone who missed viewing Miss Greer’s video, you can view it here: Liberia Christian School Project

The Shorter Catechism

Q51: What is forbidden in the second commandment?
A: The second commandment forbiddeth the worshipping of God by images1, or any other way not appointed in his Word2.
1.Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the LORD spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire: Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female. (Deuteronomy 4:15, 16).
2. Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind. (Colossians 2:18).

The Children's Catechism - History

Q5: What sin did Adam and Eve commit in the Garden of Eden?

A: They ate the forbidden fruit.
