Thanks
I wish to thank all who participated in our three (3) days of prayer and fasting last week as we prayed specially for the sick.  We had rich corporate times of prayer together and thank the Lord for his goodness to us. Let us continue to be earnest and faithful in praying one for the other.

 

BEIJING
Our athletes, coaches, management staff and all responsible for the excellent performances of our athletes in Beijing deserve the highest commendations. Jamaica placed second in the World Championship (in terms of quality of medals obtained) behind Kenya and above the mighty U.S.A.  I believe this is a prophetic statement. I will share more on that at another time. A new day has dawned!

A NEW DAY! ONE SERVICE - SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 6, 2015 at 9:00a.m
Every end marks a beginning! We are at the end of August (already) and before us is a new day and a new season as September begins and we look ahead to the final third of 2015. As we face this new day we want to share with all Swallows, our friends and families, what God has laid on our hearts for this season ahead.  To facilitate us doing so, we will be having one service again this Sunday starting at 9a.m.  Please be in much prayer for our service.

We return to our usual schedule of two Sunday services on September 13, 2015 and resume our Sunday school on that date.

M.E.L.L.O.H. DATE CHANGE – ‘I Am Adam’ series continues.  “Man & His SexualityFriday, September 11th at 7:00p.m.  and not September 4 as previously announced.  Our Speaker is Dr. Wayne West.  Come on out and reason, eat some food and listen to good music with your brothers.

SONG OF THE WEEK

Reflections

Last Sunday our brother Terence Forrester shared with us on To God be The Glory from Revelation 2:8-11.  John, the author of the book of Revelation was banished to the Isle of Patmos for refusing to renounce his testimony of Jesus as Lord.  To him Jesus introduced himself as the Alpha and Omega.  At his awesome presence John fell down as dead.  Jesus instructed him to write seven letters to the Churches, one of which was the Church at Smyrna.  This letter spoke of the suffering Christ, the suffering Church and the triumphant Christ.

The Suffering Christ (Rev 2:8) – Isaiah 53 tells us that Christ was going to be oppressed and afflicted.  He was going to be numbered among his transgressors which we see happening as he was crucified between two thieves.  He poured out his soul unto death.  When Jesus was born his parents had to escape with him to Egypt to protect him from the slaughter of baby boys ordered by King Herod.  As an adult he suffered denial and betrayal by his disciples.  Just a few people remained with him in his last hours on the cross.  As we consider the suffering of Jesus, we should not be surprised at our own suffering.  It was for the joy set before him that he endured the suffering of the cross (Hebrews 12:2).  “Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered”. (Hebrews 5:8).
