What has caused so many people to become discouraged in the faith?
Which spirit has guided Christians to leave the Church?
Jesus promised that the Holy Spirit would guide us into all truth. John 16.13
Is the Holy Spirit responsible for guiding so many Christians out of the Church?
Is He responsible for so many divisions, dissensions, slander and injustice within His House?
If the Spirit of God guides into all truth and the person leaves the church, then this church is a lie. Or the spirit guiding this person is a demon!
Intelligent faith shows that no Christian can be guided by the Spirit of God and the spirit of the devil at the same time! Either we are guided by God or by the devil!
Whoever is led by God, come what may, whatever trials or tribulations for the sake of the Lord, will never be discouraged or forsake the faith.
However, when he is guided by evil, he gives up. The seed sown by the wayside, in stony places and among the thorns is an example of this. Matthew 13.18-22
The last question is: Which spirit has been guiding you?
Bishop Macedo

With 2018 having begun, many people are determined to have a happier and more successful year. However, not everyone knows how they can achieve this, and, as a result, a year can go by without the success and happiness they were searching for.
How can we make sure that 2018 will be a successful year? We believe that perseverance, faith, and action are the key factors to success, which is why we have the Chain of Prayer. The Chain of Prayer encourages you to focus on overcoming a particular problem or achieving a goal you want, through consistent attendance at one of our meetings that is most helpful to you.
For example, if you have a financial goal, you will attend the Business Seminar every Monday at 8pm for a number of consecutive weeks in order to focus on achieving the results you want in that area. By doing the Chain of Prayer, you will apply the messages you learn from each meeting and use your faith in God to overcome whatever problem you have been facing.
How do I start a Chain of Prayer?
The first thing you need to do is think about the main problem you are facing at the moment and select the day or days that you will make your chain. By doing this, you will put your full focus into overcoming this particular problem and then, once this is solved, start a new chain for another problem. This will enable you to tackle your problems one by one. Furthermore, it is required that you attend a Sunday meeting every week, as this will help you stay strong in your faith and continue your Chain of Prayer.
If you want 2018 to be the best year of your life, take part in a Chain of Prayer and see a transformation in your life!

A man asked a wise teacher if he should stay with his wife or with his lover.

The wise man took two vases, one with a rose and the other one with a cactus. He asked the man:

_ If I were to give you one of these plants, which one would you choose?

The man smiled and said:

_ The rose of course!

The wise man replied:

_ You are reckless!

He said:

_ Sometimes, men are driven by external beauty and choose what seems to shine more at that particular moment. The rose is more beautiful, but it dies soon. The cactus, however, regardless of the weather or climate remains the same. It is green and has thorns... but one day, it will give you the most beautiful flower you have ever seen.

He continued:

_ Your wife knows your faults, your weaknesses and your mistakes. When you mourn because of the difficult times she is always ready to help you. Your lover wants your money, your happiness, your physical appearance, and your laughter. However, when facing the smallest hardships, she will not hesitate to replace you for another young lover, who is happy, healthy and wealthy.

He finally asked:

_ Now, tell me, with whom do you want to stay?

A king was riding with his army, when he noticed an old man planting a small tree. He found this very strange, since the tree would take too long to grow and, when it could bear fruit, the old man would no longer be around to eat its fruit.

So the king asked the old gardener why he insisted on such a useless task. To which the man replied:

— I am glad to sow, even if I am not the one to reap. Aren't we taking advantage today of the trees that were planted many years ago? Sowing is what matters. Not reaping.

The king considered the old man’s actions wise and, moved, handed him a bag with many gold coins as a reward for the gardener’s wisdom. And he thanked him as following:

— See how things are? I have barely just planted this tree and I am already reaping valuable fruit.

Sowing is optional, but reaping is mandatory. Therefore, be careful what you sow!

“Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.” (Galatians 6.10 NKJV)

A father had a family of sons who were perpetually quarreling among themselves. When he failed to heal their disputes by his exhortations, he determined to give them a practical illustration of the evils of disunion.

One day he told his sons to bring him a bundle of sticks. When they had done so, he placed the bundle into the hands of each of them in succession, and ordered them to break it in pieces. They tried with all their strength, and were not able to do it.

He next opened the bundle, took the sticks separately, one by one, and again put them into his sons’ hands, upon which they broke them easily.

He then addressed them in these words: “My sons, if you are of one mind, and unite to assist each other, you will be as strong as this bundle, uninjured by all the attempts of your enemies, but if you are divided among yourselves, you will be broken as easily as these sticks.”
