[ March/April Newsletter ]
 

Greetings Brethren, I hope this letter finds you in the peace of our savior Yahshua the Messiah who compels us to love one another and by this we know that we are His disciples. Grace to you and joy in His Holy Spirit, which we need to be multiplied in the knowledge of Yahshua our master. It is our desire to walk in truth with the savior everyday in our journey to the kingdom. We hope Yahshua keeps your hearts filled His with His Holy love. We just completed the keeping of the joyous Passover Memorial and the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Several new brethren were added to our numbers of which we praise Father Yahweh greatly.

 

LIFE IS PRECIOUS

One of the most important things in life we learn is that life is precious and we must take very good care of ours as well as others. Yahshua our messiah showed us an example of how precious life is in giving His life as the Lamb of Yahweh for the sins of the world. That powerful sacrifice has given all those who accept Him as the Lamb of Yahweh a cleansing that can only come from on high. Have you accepted Yahshua’s cleansing blood that purges you from your past sin. If you have accepted Yahshua’s sacrifice then you are a new creature in the kingdom of Yahweh and you understand that life is precious. In Psalm 116:15 it states; precious in the sight of Yahweh is the death of His Saints. Obviously almighty Yahweh cares dearly for His servants and their deaths cost Him something. When we lose a loved one there is a hole left in the lives of the love ones who remain and our heavenly father as well.

Yahweh gave His only begotten son to redeem the world that had turned their backs on him. Yes, He wants all to be saved from our sin and our so-called independence. We are all depended on Almighty Yahweh for our daily sustenance. In Ps. 104 we see all creatures as well as man are dependent on our Father in heaven. 

1Bless Yahweh, O my soul! O Yahweh my Elohim, You are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty, 2Covering yourself with light as with a garment, Stretching out heaven like a tent curtain. 3He lays the beams of His upper chambers in the waters; He makes the clouds His chariot; He walks upon the wings of the wind; 4He makes the winds His messengers, flaming fire His ministers. 5He established the earth upon its foundations, So that it will not be moved forever and ever.
6You covered it with the deep as with a garment; the waters were standing above the mountains. 7At Your rebuke they fled, at the sound of Your thunder they hurried away.
8The mountains rose; the valleys sank down To the place which You established for them.  9You set a boundary that they may not pass over, So that they will not return to cover the earth. 10He sends forth springs in the valleys; they flow between the mountains; 11They give drink to every beast of the field; the wild donkeys quench their thirst. 12Beside them the birds of the heavens dwell; they lift up their voices among the branches. 13He waters the mountains from His upper chambers; the earth is satisfied with the fruit of His works. 14He causes the grass to grow for the cattle, And vegetation for the labor of man, So that he may bring forth food from the earth, 15And wine which makes man's heart glad, So that he may make his face glisten with oil, And food which sustains man's heart.16The trees of Yahweh drink their fill, The cedars of Lebanon which He planted, 17Where the birds build their nests, And the stork, whose home is the fir trees. 18The high mountains are for the wild goats; the cliffs are a refuge for the shephanim. 19He made the moon for the seasons; the sun knows the place of its setting.
20You appoint darkness and it becomes night, in which all the beasts of the forest prowl about. 21The young lions roar after their prey and seek their food from El. 22When the sunrises they withdraw and lie down in their dens.  23Man goes forth to his work
and to his labor until evening. 24O Yahweh, how many are Your works!  In wisdom you have made them all; the earth is full of Your possessions. 25There is the sea, great and broad, in which are swarms without number, Animals both small and great. 26There the ships move along, And Leviathan, which You have formed to sport in it. 27They all wait for You To give them their food in due season. 28You give to them, they gather it up;
You open Your hand, they are satisfied with good. 29You hide Your face, they are dismayed; You take away their spirit, they expire and return to their dust. 30You send forth Your Spirit, they are created; And You renew the face of the ground. 31Let the glory of Yahweh endure forever; Let Yahweh be glad in His works; 32He looks at the earth, and it trembles; He touches the mountains, and they smoke. 33I will sing to Yahweh as long as I live; I will sing praise to my Elohim while I have my being. 34Let my meditation be pleasing to Him, As for me, I shall rejoice in Yahweh. 35Let sinners be consumed from the earth And let the wicked be no more,  Bless Yahweh, O my soul  HalleluYah!

It is only Yahweh that we can turn to for our guidance and care then why are we so rebellious? Man is a very selfish creature and he places his needs above all others. We know from 1 Sam. 15:23 that rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as idolatry and teraphim. Those who have chosen to serve Almighty Yahweh have learned to depend on Him for their salvation.  We have a very limited amount of time on this earth in the flesh so we must spend as much time learning the will of our father in heaven. This will also prepare us for the kingdom to come so we can serve as kings and priest. This reward is only for those who qualify as the first fruits of almighty Yahweh’s ingathering. Are you on track to be one of the 144,000 of the first fruits to Almighty Yahweh? If not then take time to get your life in order by keeping all of His commandments and learning to love your enemies. All life is precious because He ordained it so we should respect His creation. This is not true of all men; most don’t respect the lives of people they see as inferior to themselves.

Yahweh does not need the help of any man when it comes to His creation when He commands us to do something for Him we need to be ready and answer like Isaiah and say "Here I Am Send Me". We know that Satan is going to use the ego of man for his purposes. We must prepare for this onslaught because Satan is trying to destroy Yahweh’s people in any way he can. We must be willing to yield to Almighty Yahweh’s commandments to honor our mother and father so that our days will be long on the land. Everyone needs an advocate when it comes to medical care just as we have an advocate with the father our savior Yahshua the Messiah.

Brace yourselves because Satan has influenced the powers that be concerning this subject so prepare yourselves and arm yourselves with more of Yahweh’s Holy Spirit which will be needed to defeat the enemy. Start the process with love; this element is necessary in the war against the adversary to overcome their selfish logic. Pray that Almighty Yahweh would send Yahshua back soon so this sinful era will be at an end.

  • Bioethics is the study of controversial ethics brought about by advances in biology and medicine. Bioethicists are concerned with the ethical questions that arise in the relationships among life sciences, biotechnology, medicine, politics, law, and philosophy.


  • The field of bioethics has addressed a broad swath of human inquiry, ranging from debates over the boundaries of life (e.g. abortion, euthanasia),Surrogacy to the allocation of scarce health care resources (e.g. organ donation, health care rationing) to the right to turn down medical care for religious or cultural reasons. Bioethicists often disagree among themselves over the precise limits of their discipline, debating whether the field should concern itself with the ethical evaluation of all questions involving biology and medicine, or only a subset of these questions. Some bioethicists would narrow ethical evaluation only to the morality of medical treatments or technological innovations, and the timing of medical treatment of humans. Others would broaden the scope of ethical evaluation to include the morality of all actions that might help or harm organisms capable of feeling fear.
    One of the first areas addressed by modern bioethicists was that of human experimentation. The National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research was initially established in 1974 to identify the basic ethical principles that should underlie the conduct of biomedical and behavioral research involving human subjects. However, the fundamental principles announced in the Belmont Report (1979)--namely, autonomy, beneficence and justice--have influenced the thinking of bioethicists across a wide range of issues. Others have added non-maleficence, human dignity and the sanctity of life to this list of cardinal values.                                                   
    Another important principle of bioethics is its placement of value on discussion and presentation. Numerous discussion based bioethics groups exist in universities across the United States to champion exactly such goals. Examples include The Ohio State Bioethics Society and the Bioethics Society of Cornell. Professional level versions of these organizations also exist.
    Medical ethics is the study of moral values and judgments as they apply to medicine. As a scholarly discipline, medical ethics encompasses its practical application in clinical settings as well as work on its history, philosophy, theology, and sociology.

    Medical ethics tends to be understood narrowly as an applied professional ethics, whereas bioethics appears to have worked more expansive concerns, touching upon the philosophy of science and issues of biotechnology. Still, the two fields often overlap and the distinction is more a matter of style than professional consensus. Medical ethics shares many principles with other branches of healthcare ethics, such as nursing ethics. A Bioethicist assists the health care and research community in examining moral issues involved in our understanding of life and death, and resolving ethical dilemmas in medicine and science.

 

KENYA

Shalom brethren.

Greetings brethren with love in Yahshua’s name. We are all fine here and waxing strong in the faith. The feast was wonderful and we were able to complete the days successfully in all our centers . Our main center, Limuru recorded the largest number in attendance, beginning with about fifty brethren for Passover Memorial and later the number rose to about eighty. Here the brethren were from Njoro, Naivasha, Kisii and Nairobi converged. The daily schedule was always tight for as we would wake up early at 6:00 am, pray and begin the service up to 9:00am when we would break for breakfast and then return to the meeting hall for more teachings. This would continue up to 2.00 pm after which we go for lunch, washings and rest until evening. At evening we had many visitors flocking in from the neighborhood and more teachings, prayers, songs of praises were offered and we finished our worship around 11:00pm, which was our bedtime. All this was done to ensure that least time was wasted.

The feast proved to be quite fruitful for a brother believed and was baptized at the beginning of the feast and another was led into repentance at the end of the feast. We praise Yahweh for all this and also thank you all for your great support. Yahweh Bless you.

EYES ON ISRAEL

Luke 21:20 "But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then recognize that her desolation is near.   NASU



The fading power of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's government leaves Israel in a state of strategic distress. Without Mubarak, Israel is left with almost no friends in the Middle East; last year, Israel saw its alliance with Turkey collapse.

Netanyahu to PA : Peace With Hamas Means No Peace With Israel

by Gavriel Queenann

Follow Israel news on Twitterand Facebook.

Israel's Prime Minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, responded to reports Wednesday of a Fatah-Hamas reconciliation with an ultimatum for PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

In a recorded video message Netanyahu said the "Palestinian Authority needs to choose between peace with the people of Israel and peace with Hamas. You cannot have peace with both, because Hamas aspires to destroy the State of Israel, and I'll say it openly."

"Hamas fires rockets at our cities and anti-tank missiles at our children," Netanyahu said. "I think the mere idea of reconciliation demonstrates the Palestinian Authority's weakness, and brings up the question of whether Hamas will take over Judea and Samaria as it did Gaza."Choose peace with Israel. The choice is hers."
Netanyahu has made similar statements in the past.
Netanyahu added: "I hope the PA makes the right choice."
Netanyahu's sentiment has been increasingly shared by officials in Jerusalem. “Abbas has to choose whether he wants peace with Israel, or peace with Hamas,” one official said several weeks ago. “He can’t have both. If he chooses peace with Hamas it will bury the peace process.”
Netanyahu's objection to the participation of Hamas in a PA government is based on the organization's refusal to abandon violence, recognize Israel, and accept standing PA-Israel agreements -- the same criteria set by the Quartet of peacekeeping nations for renewal of funding to any PA government that includes Hamas.

Report: Hamas Stirring Up Violence in Egypt
by Maayana Miskin

Follow Israel news on Twitterand Facebook.

Hamas is attempting to increase the level of violence in Egyptian demonstrations, according to a report in the Egyptian daily Al-Yawm Al-Sabah that was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). According to the report, Hamas terrorists were recently caught on their way to demonstrations.

Nine of the terrorists were nabbed in Suez City, and another two were caught in El-Arish.
Security forces believe the 11 were not alone, the paper said. More terrorists are believed to have infiltrated Sinai recently. There has also been movement in the other direction, as Hamas prisoners escape jail in Egypt while police are busy with the protests.

Hamas shares a platform with the Muslim Brotherhood, an Egyptian opposition party that supports the demonstrations against Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. The Gaza-based terrorist group is in fact an offshoot of the Brotherhood, as is the Jordanian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Israel-based Islamic Movement.

More than 300 people are thought to have been killed in riots in Egypt so far. The Muslim Brotherhood's favored candidate for president, former UN inspector Mohammed ElBaradei, recently told Mubarak that he must leave the country by Friday, a demand Mubarak has rejected.

NEWS, NOTES, & NOTABLES

Looking Ahead to the Next New Moon: The new moon for the 2nd scriptural month should be visible the evening of Tuesday May 3, 2011. So watch. 

In Genesis 1:14-18 we see the significance of the heavenly bodies.  “Then Elohim said, ‘Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth;’ and it was so. Then Elohim made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. Elohim set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And Elohim saw that it was good.”  (NKJV)

Be sure to look for this new moon and report your findings to us by calling 717-383-6975.

We are commanded to pray for the sick among us in James 5:13-15 13 “Is any among you suffering? Let him pray. Is any cheerful? Let him sing praise. 14 Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the assembly; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of Yahweh: 15 and the prayer of faith shall save him that is sick, and Yahweh shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, it shall be forgiven him. Let us pray for these people who have a petition before Almighty Yahweh.
