UPDATE 53

“Operation 2 Thessalonians 2:15” Winter 2013/14

“So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter.”

Dear Friends

Paul’s letters to the Thessalonians were written in the white heat of persecution. Christians were persevering against tremendous odds. Paul thought so highly of the forbearance of the Thessalonians that he wrote, “… among God’s churches we boast about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring” (2 Thess 1:4). Theirs was a powerful testimony.

We’re all good at talking tough before opposition explodes but Paul was addressing a situation in Thessalonica where the explosion had already happened and believers were facing the fall-out: outright persecution in various kinds of trials. What a trial of faith: what a temptation to shelter from persecution by hiding away behind the shield of apostasy.

Paul was anxious in case his friends should slither away from the clear teachings they had received from him. His anxiety was not based upon nothing. The temptation to compromise for the sake of peace was overwhelming and so Paul made it his business to “lay it on the line” and move every muscle to keep his friends centred in Jesus.

The View from the Hill: 38



IMPORTANT NOTICE


This feature unfortunately has been indefinitely suspended. Here are Chris's comments from his latest newsletter: "In wanting to reach as many people as possible with the Word, we have sought to extend our work through the internet. Our Website has been carrying a weekly visual teaching session, "A View from the Hill" ... Although we had high hopes for it, it has not been well supported. In fact in some weeks only around twenty folks have tuned in. Lindy and I believe that the amount of work involved in producing these programmes is therefore not justified, so we have reluctantly taken it offline ...

If you are one of those twenty, why not tell Chris how you have been blessed and, if he re-commences this feature, how you are going to tell ALL of your internet friends to visit weekly :-)

Chris on the Olympics!

A message from Chris and Lindy

WE LIVE IN TOUGH TIMES. BIBLE BELIEVING DISCIPLES OF JESUS ARE UNDER THE COSH FROM SOCIETY AT LARGE AND ARE BEING COLD SHOULDERED BY MANY TRADITIONAL CHRISTIANS AND THEIR LEADERS.

THE DIFFICULT DAYS THAT WILL PRECEDE THE RETURN OF JESUS, OF WHICH THE NEW TESTAMENT WARNS, ARE NOW HERE AND THE CALL IS FOR STRONG DISCIPLES WHO ARE DESPERATE ENOUGH TO BE JESUS CENTRED AGAINST ALL ODDS AND WHO WILL STAND STRONG IN THE BATTLE.

C L MINISTRIES EXISTS TO MAKE SUCH DISCIPLES. CHRIS AND LINDY HILL BELIEVE THEIR CALL FROM GOD IS TO DO THIS BY PREACHING, TEACHING, THE PRODUCTION OF RECORDINGS AND BOOKS AND TAKING PEOPLE TO ISRAEL, THE LAND OF THE BIBLE.
