Dynamic praise and worship leader, Jimmy D Psalmist releases new single “Great and Terrible” to mark his birthday today. The song is off his recently released album, MIGHTY MAN OF WAR.

Speaking about the song he says, “The reason why folks are afraid and are being molested by the devil is because of the lack of knowledge/revelation of the personality and capacity of our GOD. 

 “A child of an Army General can never and will never be afraid of a bully. I’ll like to remind you that you are the child of the MASTER of the UNIVERSE, the OWNER of the WHOLE WORLD. All power belongs to Him, so why are you afraid of the devil that is supposed to be under your feet? 

 “Allow me to tell you a little about your God in this song. If “Mighty Man of War” got you on your feet or made you soar like an eagle then get ready because this song “Great and Terrible” will embolden your inward man. 

 “Meanwhile, a full dose of “Mighty Man of War” album will take you to another dimension in God. Enjoy the presence of God.” 

“Great and Terrible” was produced By Ebenezer Iriemi.

LYRICS 

Great & Terrible by Jimmy D Psalmist

You’re sitteth in heaven and make the earth your footstool 

Yet you live in me 2x

The river of life with fire in your eyes

What a wonder you are 2x

You built the earth and roofed it with the heavens

No pillar no walls 2x

You speak in thunder and clothed with yards of fire

How terrible you are 2x

 

Ewo ewo

Great and terrible God

Yes you reign

 

Eleh eleh

Great and terrible God

Yes you reign

 

Iyammi o iyammi o

Great and terrible God

Yes you reign 

 

Chimoo chimoo

Great and terrible God 

Yes you reign

 

My God you reign, you reign

Great and Terrible God 

Yes you reign

 

Yes you reign, yes you reign

Great and Terrible God

Yes you reign

 

I’m not afraid, not afraid 

Great and terrible God

Yes you reign.

The U.N. says two peacekeepers in Central African Republic have been wounded in clashes with mostly Christian anti-Balaka militias who attacked the southern town of Pombolo.

U.N. deputy spokesman Farhan Haq tells reporters that peacekeepers arrived in Pombolo the previous day to protect civilians in response to widespread violence that has reportedly killed at least 26 people and wounded dozens.

He said Friday that the two wounded were in stable condition and were being taken to Bria for medical treatment. Additional peacekeepers were being deployed to reinforce the U.N. presence in the area.

Central African Republic has been wracked by violence between Muslims and Christians since 2013, when predominantly Muslim Seleka rebels overthrew the Christian president and seized power.


 

A senior cleric from Cyprus’ Orthodox Christian church has banned couples who marry in civil ceremonies to take wedding photos outside churches and chapels in a part of the island that is popular with holidaymakers.

Metropolitan Vasilios of Constantia and Ammochostos told local TV channel Sigma on Friday that he imposed the ban after “shameful” photos surfaced online of what appeared to be a bride performing oral sex on her husband outside a chapel.

The Metropolitan said he wrote the attorney general to ask if there are grounds to take legal action against the British couple, but hasn’t yet received a reply.

He said the couple’s behavior caused “great upheaval” in the community and was a moral affront. He says visitors should show more respect.

Israel’s nationalist government may be unpopular with Western liberals and much of its domestic press corps, but it has found a close friend among the world’s evangelical Christians and their media outlets.

The government this week is hosting a first-of-its-kind summit for Christian journalists, featuring softball questions, mutual admiration and a welcome respite for embattled Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. His outreach to evangelical leaders reflects striking tactical parallels to his close ally and fellow media basher, President Donald Trump.

About 130 journalists from some 30 countries are participating in the four-day summit, which ends Wednesday. The world’s largest broadcasters, including the Christian Broadcasting Network, Daystar, Trinity Broadcasting Network and God TV, are all represented.

Nitzan Chen, the director of Israel’s Government Press Office, said he believed the summit was long overdue, and that planners chose the 50th anniversary celebrations of Israel’s capture of east Jerusalem as a fitting occasion for the conference.

For many years, Israel has held a summit for Jewish media outlets, cultivating those journalists as unofficial “ambassadors” to help promote Israel’s image abroad, he said. “Using the same logic,” it decided to reach out to Christian media, in what could become a regular event.

The summit’s agenda includes meetings with top Israeli politicians, most from the nationalist side. Palestinian speakers barely appear on the agenda.

Sessions include discussions on archaeology and Jewish-Christian relations, but also “radical Islam” and alleged media bias, legal “warfare” and Palestinian “incitement” against Israel. While Israel’s West Bank settlements are largely vilified in the West, participants are offered a chance to visit one.

The media summit extends what has become a warm relationship between Israel and its evangelical supporters.

Local charities raise millions of dollars from Christian friends around the world, and evangelical Christians make up a sizeable segment of the tourism industry. Last week, thousands of Christians gathered in Jerusalem for an annual celebration and parade coinciding with the Jewish holiday of Sukkot.

According to Israel’s Tourism Ministry, evangelical Christians account for roughly one-fifth of all Christian tourists visiting the country. Among American Christian visitors, the number of evangelicals is much higher, at nearly 40 percent.

“The evangelical market is one of our main target audiences,” said Eyal Carlin, director of the ministry’s Americas department. He said the ministry advertises in Christian media, sponsors trips for influential community leaders and works with Christian tour operators to offer visits with “faith-based or biblical themes.”

Gordon Robertson, chief executive of the Christian Broadcasting Network and a summit participant, said evangelical support for Israel was deep and heartfelt.

He described Israel’s modern-day history, from its founding in 1948 to its capture of east Jerusalem in 1967 to scenes last week of children laughing and playing in his Jerusalem hotel, as fulfilling biblical prophecy — the bedrock idea seemingly driving the Evangelicals’ support.

He also talked of his strong personal affinity for Israel and the Jewish faith, noting that he enjoys studying the Hebrew Bible. “I like to joke, the longer I’m a Christian the more Jewish I become,” he said.

CBN, known best for its “700 Club” show and which claims a worldwide audience of 360 million people, delivered its first satellite broadcast from Jerusalem’s Mount of Olives in 1976. Today, its Jerusalem operation is “one of our most productive bureaus in the world,” he said.

While Robertson, the son of famed televangelist Pat Robertson, said he did not consider himself to be a direct partner of the Israeli government, he said, “I think we can be a partner with the Israeli people.”

“Israel is obviously in a very difficult position with the Palestinians, with the Arab world, and there needs to be a voice that’s independent from Israel, saying, ‘wait a minute, Israel is actually doing the right thing.'” He said.

That strong support for Israel was evident at Netanyahu’s meeting with the visiting journalists.

Netanyahu, who routinely spars with local media and has accused them of reporting “fake news” in their coverage of a series of corruption scandals, received a warm welcome.

“Good to see you, my friend,” said one journalist before asking a question. “There’s no fake news here.”

Netanyahu’s embrace of the Christian media echoes the strategy employed by Trump.

White evangelicals were a core constituency that propelled Trump to victory in last year’s election. And even after the tumultuous start to his presidency, they remain staunch supporters. Trump, along with members of his administration and his family, have appeared regularly on CBN.

Robertson said that Christian voters were drawn to Trump in part because of his strong support for Israel. “It’s absolutely an issue. It will absolutely determine a vote,” he said.

Ahmad Majdalani, an aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, said evangelical support for Israel is well-known but difficult to understand. He said that both Palestinian Christians and Muslims are harmed by Israeli policies.

“I think those evangelical people are deluded by the Israeli propaganda,” he said. “I recommend they go to Bethlehem and see the large swatch of Christian land that was confiscated and turned into Jewish settlements.”

Robertson echoed the Israeli claim that the Palestinians have rejected repeated peace offers and refused to recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state.

He also rejected a common “accusation” in Israel that evangelical Christians are here to convert Jews or prepare for the End of Days.

“We really truly stand with Israel, and we really truly want to be dear friends,” he said.

Not everyone agrees. Jeremy Ben Ami, president of J Street, a liberal pro-Israel group in Washington that is often critical of the Israeli government, said the evangelicals do not necessarily have Israel’s best interests in mind.

“Israel should be wary of embracing extreme Christian Zionist groups that may be more concerned with their own theological agendas than with Israel’s long-term survival as a secure, democratic homeland for the Jewish people,” he said.


Group of parents say children have been given hateful messages in assemblies and lessons led by charity CrossTeach

A primary school in Kent has cuts its ties with a Christian group after parents complained of religious extremism and claimed children had been distressed by comments about gay marriage and a demonstration of “God’s power” in assemblies.

Dan Turvey, the headteacher of St John’s Church of England primary school in Tunbridge Wells, told parents in a letter that he was ending invitations to the charity CrossTeach to lead school assemblies and take lessons, after what he called a campaign by parents.

The group of parents said they had been raising concerns for several months, and that the school had failed to address a string of complaints.

Incidents included a harvest festival assembly in which a CrossTeach guest speaker attempted to demonstrate “the destructive power of God” by smashing a model boat.

One parent claimed her son had been told last week that “men can’t marry men”.

The group of parents said in a statement: “We recognise and respect the school’s Christian values but think there is a brand of Christianitythat is abusing that respect. The basis of [our] complaint relates purely to concerns over the welfare and safeguarding of children who we believe are being exposed to potentially damaging ideology.”

One parent with a child at the school, who did not wish to be identified, said: “The fact that the school didn’t care or do anything about it is unbelievable. We have tried to engage with them but they weren’t really interested. What we don’t like is the hateful messages that have been given to our children.”

Turvey said the parents believed CrossTalk and others from St John’s church had an “extremist set of beliefs” but said he had not heard extremist views being expressed at the school.

“After careful consideration I have decided that we will end our regular commitment to CrossTeach and that they will no longer lead assemblies or take lessons,” Turvey told parents in the letter sent on Monday.

He said he was “deeply saddened” to take the step. “They do not deserve the tarnishing of their good name and allegations of extremism that have taken place over the last few months,” Turvey said in his letter. He said the group would still be allowed to run voluntary after-school clubs.

CrossTeach failed to answer requests for a response. Turvey told the Guardian: “Things we’ve read and heard from parents … we don’t recognise them. It’s clear there’s been some misunderstanding.”

As a faith school, St John’s has more leeway to promote the Church of England and Christianity to pupils. But faith schools must still adhere to Department for Education guidelines regarding fundamental British values, including equality and non-discrimination in matters such as gay marriage, as well as respect and tolerance for other faiths.

In recent years several Muslim faith schools have been penalised by the DfE and Ofsted for failing to respect British values, while some non-faith state schools

have been cited for failing to adequately prepare pupils for life in modern Britain.

In his letter to parents, Turvey bemoaned the influence of social media on the school during the campaign by parents.

“It is my view that the use of social media can be destructive and counterproductive. In this case I believe that the damage caused by the use of this media will take a very long time to repair,” he said, adding that it was clear “relationships have been soured and trust eroded” at the school.

Turvey told parents: “The past few months have been stressful, tiring and a distraction from our focus,” with the school facing an Ofsted inspection and financial difficulties.
