A plea to the president Obama to attend church

“Dear Mr. President,

Remember all the analysis immediately after your election this past November regarding where you and your family would attend church? Newspapers and websites were filled with stories about where you would go, and numerous congregations in Washington invited you, your wife, and children to attend their Sunday morning services. Although Americans have usually displayed substantial interest in where their presidents attended church while in office, never before had there been such fascination with this issue before a president was inaugurated. At present, this focus seems ironic because you and your family have attended church in Washington only once — on Easter Sunday — since you took office (although you have attended a few services at Camp David).

Americans acknowledge that you are a very busy man with incredibly important responsibilities. We also recognize the typical reasons some of your predecessors have given for not attending church regularly and you have sometimes used: they did not want to divert other worshippers’ attention from God to themselves, they did not want to subject other congregants to metal detectors and security concerns, they found it difficult to worship when others appeared to being watching them, or they wanted to use Sunday morning for other activities such as golf or stamp collecting. However, these reasons have not deterred several of your recent predecessors, and the benefits of attending more than compensate for the problems they involve.”

Gary Scott Smith

Conferinta Peniel-Baia Mare

For those living in USA, please see this link: http://www.peniel.ro/new/Evenimente/Peniel-camp-in-USA.php

Dragi prieteni,

In ciuda previziunilor negative, anul 2009 va fi un an deosebit din punct de vedere spiritual! Deja am experimentat “pe pielea mea” acest lucru. Am vazut si aud continuu despre modul in care Dumnezeu lucreaza in aceasta vreme si ma bucur nespus sa stiu ca Biserica lui Cristos se cerne si se mobilizeaza in vederea intalnirii cu Mantuitorul ei.
Chiar daca Biserica din Romania a inceput sa iasa din obisnuit, cred ca mai are inca multe de facut in ce priveste implinirea planului lui Dumnezeu. Evanghelicii se lauda ca au peste 500.000 de membri in Romania (conform recensamantului din 2002 evanghelicii insumau 513.775 persoane) si, totusi, numarul de misionari pe care aceasta i-a trimis in afara tarii este foarte mic (ca sa iau in evidenta numai unul dintre aspecte). Stiu ca putem mai mult si, cu ajutorul lui Dumnezeu, vom reusi!
Conferinta Nationala Peniel din 2009 va aborda subiectul misiunii, ca obligatie a fiecarui crestin adevarat care doreste atat mantuirea proprie, cat si a celor din jurul sau (vezi Mat. 22:37-39). Nu am dori ca din nestiinta sau din omitere sa ne facem vinovati de sangele celor care trebuia sa auda despre dragostea mantuitoare a lui Isus Cristos. Prin urmare, invitam la aceasta conferinta pe toti tinerii care doresc sa afle cum pot sa faca voia lui Dumnezeu si in aceasta privinta, dar si pe cei care au nevoie de o incurajare suplimentara din partea Domnului.
Alte detalii necesare:
1. Conferinta va avea loc la Sala Polivalenta “Lascar Pana”, din Baia Mare, pe 13-14 aprilie 2009 (luni si marti).
2. Titlul: oMISIUNE
3. Motto: Ps. 9:11 “Cântaţi Domnului, care împărăţeşte în Sion, vestiţi printre popoare isprăvile Lui!”
4. Vor predica din Cuvantul lui Dumnezeu:
a) Daniel Chereji – pastor al Bisericii “Biruinta” din Baia Mare (www.biruinta.ro); este obsolvent al Universitatii Emanuel din Oradea si licentiat in teologie in cadrul Universitatii Babes-Bolyai din Cluj. Daniel este casatorit cu Mihaela si impreuna au doi copii: Rut si Paul.
b) Ghita Mois – pastor al Bisericii “Maranata” din Baia Mare; este absolvent al ITP – Bucuresti si licentiat in teologie in cadrul Universitatii Babes-Bolyai din Cluj. Ghita este casatorit cu Olimpia si impreuna au trei fete: Adalgiza, Georgiana si Damaris.
c) George Verwer – autor a aproape 30 de carti, a absolvit Moody Bible Institute, iar in 1961 a fondat organizatia mondiala Operation Mobilisation, care are peste 4000 de lucratori in peste 80 de natiuni. Este casatorit cu Drena si impreuna au trei copii adulti. Actualmente locuiesc in Kent, Anglia (www.georgeverwer.com).
c) Iuliu Centea – pastor in Biserica “Betel” din Oradea, profesor si membru in comitetul director al Fundatiei Peniel; a abtinut licenta in teologie si filologie la Universitatea din Oradea, masteratul in Managementul Educatiei, iar in prezent este doctorand in istorie. Iuliu este casatorit cu Ligia si impreuna au doi copii: Iulia si Timotei.
5. Inchinarea va fi condusa de catre Peniel band, Alin Timofte, grupul Faclia si Gabi Ilut.
6. La aceasta conferinta vor putea participa primele 2.800 de persoane care se vor inscrie pe internet la www.peniel.ro, prin liderul de grup care le va insoti si care isi vor valida participarea prin plata in avans, pana la data de 3 aprilie (vezi detalii despre cont pe site)! Donatia pentru participare este 30 lei/pers! Pentru informatii financiar-bancare, scrieti la chivadanciu@yahoo.com.
7. Organizatorii Peniel nu vor asigura cazarea participantilor, dar vor acorda asistenta pentru cazare, in masura locurilor oferite de catre bisericile evanghelice sau de catre administratorii internatelor/caminelor din Baia Mare.
Pentru a ne usura munca, va rugam sa luati legatura direct sau prin pastorul dv. cu crestinii din Baia Mare si rezolvati-va singuri cazarea! Va puteti caza si la locatiile afisate in linkul din mesajul de pe www.peniel.ro. Nu uitati sa mentionati parola “Peniel” pentru ca unele preturi sunt negociate special pentru acest eveniment!
In cazul in care nu va descurcati, va rugam luati legatura cu Raluca POP, la tel. 0723-849.434 (dupa ora 18:00) sau prin e-mail la: raluca_bpm@yahoo.com.
8. Pentru buna desfasurare a procesului organizatoric si a conferintei in sine, va rugam sa fiti alaturi de noi in rugaciune si post pe data de 3 aprilie. Fie ca Dumnezeu sa se bucure de noi si ca Biserica din Romania sa-si dea zeciuiala pentru misiune si din resursele umane!

Veniti la Peniel si nu veti regreta!
In numele echipei Peniel,
Lucian Oniga

Religious Freedom Day, 2009

The White House has released President Bush’s Religious Freeday Day proclamation for 2009. Each year, the President declares January 16th to be Religious Freedom Day, and calls upon Americans to observe this day through appropriate events and activities in homes, schools, and places of worship.

A Proclamation by the President of the United States of America .

Religious freedom is the foundation of a healthy and hopeful society. On Religious Freedom Day, we recognize the importance of the 1786 passage of the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom. We also celebrate the first liberties enshrined in our Constitution’s Bill of Rights, which guarantee the free exercise of religion for all Americans and prohibit an establishment of religion.

Our Nation was founded by people seeking haven from religious persecution, and the religious liberty they found here remains one of this land’s greatest blessings. As Americans, we believe that all people have inherent dignity and worth. Though we may profess different creeds and worship in different manners and places, we respect each other’s humanity and expression of faith. People with diverse views can practice their faiths here while living together in peace and harmony, carrying on our Nation’s noble tradition of religious freedom… ”

Plan de Rugaciune USA

    

Asezarea geografica :   

  America de Nord, invecinandu-se cu Oceanul Atlantic de Nord si Oceanul Pacific de Nord, intre Canada si Mexic.     

North America, bordering both the North Atlantic Ocean and the North Pacific Ocean, between Canada and Mexico .”  (CIA-The World Factbook )  

Populatia : 303.8 de  milioane (July 2008 est.)  (CIA-The World Factbook )

 

Religia:  Protestant 51.3%, Roman Catholic 23.9%, Mormon 1.7%, other Christian 1.6%, Jewish 1.7%, Buddhist 0.7%, Muslim 0.6%, other or unspecified 2.5%, unaffiliated 12.1%, none 4% (2007 est.)    (CIA-The World Factbook )  

 

Ethnic groups:  

white 79.96%, black 12.85%, Asian 4.43%, Amerindian and Alaska native 0.97%, native Hawaiian and other Pacific islander 0.18%, two or more races 1.61% (July 2007 estimate)

note: a separate listing for Hispanic is not included because the US Census Bureau considers Hispanic to mean a person of Latin American descent (including persons of Cuban, Mexican, or Puerto Rican origin) living in the US who may be of any race or ethnic group (white, black, Asian, etc.); about 15.1% of the total US population is Hispanic 

 

   2 Cronici 7:13,14 “Când voi închide cerul, şi nu va fi ploaie, când voi porunci lăcustelor să mănânce ţara, când voi trimite ciuma în poporul Meu: dacă poporul Meu peste care este chemat Numele Meu se va smeri, se va ruga, şi va căuta faţa Mea, şi se va abate de la căile lui rele, îl voi asculta din ceruri, îi voi ierta păcatul, şi-i voi tămădui ţara.”  

“If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by my name humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”  (II Chronicles 7:13-14)

 

Benjamin Franklin, certainly one of the least religious of the Founding Fathers and co-authors of the Declaration of Independence, reminded his fellow delegates at the Constitutional Convention of 1787 for the need prayer in and by our government bodies said it best.

“In the beginning of the contest with Great Britain, when we were sensible of danger, we had daily prayer in this room for the Divine protection. Our prayers, sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a superintending Providence in our favor… And have we now forgotten that powerful Friend? Or do we imagine we no longer need His assistance? I have lived, sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth-that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? We have been assured, sir, in the Sacred Writings, that “except the Lord build the House, they labor in vain that build it.” I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without His concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel:… I therefore beg leave to move-that henceforth prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven, and its blessings on our deliberations, be held in this Assembly every morning before we proceed to business.”

 

Realitati si provocari pentru rugaciune:    

 

          In ultimul secol, Statele Unite a trimis mai multi misionari decat orice alta tara, avand impact in fiecare natiune de pe pamant. 35% dintre toti  misionarii straini sunt americani .

          Industria pornografica din intrega lume este mai mare decât veniturile  companiilor de top din tehnologia  de vârf combinate: Microsoft, Google, Amazon, eBay, Yahoo!, Apple, Netflix şi EarthLink … La fiecare 39 minute: un nou video cu caracter pornografic este creat în Statele Unite … În SUA , pornografia este o industrie de $ 12 – $ 13 de miliarde de dolari annual Sa ne rugam pentru  eliberarea oameniilor de sub robia viciilor si pentru a fi expusi la Evanghelia Domnului Isus Hristos.          The pornography industry is larger than the revenues of the top technology companies combined: Microsoft, Google, Amazon, eBay, Yahoo!, Apple, Netflix and EarthLink… Every 39 minutes: a new pornographic video is being created in the United States …  In USA, Pornography  is a $12-$13 billion- a-year industry .” (Internet-filter-review…com) Let us pray for the release of people under slavery addictions and to be exposed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
