A Merry Christmas And Happy New Year!
In many ways it is has been a difficult year but certainly an eventful one. We all got to witness the rapid rise and equally rapid decline of Mr. Todd Bentley and his so-called revival. Let’s continue to pray that God will mercifully open the eyes of all the thousands of people who ran to his meetings and were deceived by this charlatan. May God grant Bentley a genuinely repentant heart.
This year brought us President elect Obama. This next year will reveal to us what manner of man he truly is. Again we are commanded to pray for those in authority that we may live godly and peaceful live, so let us pray for him, his family, and all of government officials.
We also witnessed the collapse of Wall Street and the ill-advised “bail-out” by our government. Living in Detroit, I can personally attest to the havoc the economy has wrought on those around us. May God grant all of us wisdom in the stewardship of our funds. Even in a “down” economy there is no reason for people to grow slack in their support of the Kingdom of God. Ask yourself, does any Christian need HBO and over 250 channels? (No).
In the face of any and all the world and the devil can throw at us let us be mindful to keep our eyes focused on Jesus Christ knowing that He has never failed His people and never will. Celebrate His birth and look forward to His soon return!
His servant and yours
Vicar Bob Liichow
