Dear Dis Donc, First welcome. Second leaving aside your characterization, your are the one who said “wayane cheering” for those who have different opinion than yours. Do you feel bad, if someoneon to what you are saying, characterized as “ODP cheering”. Such kind of approach does not invite engagement. Third, you are not talking about solutions or any kind of prescription to the political problem of Ethiopia, even if you don’t have political clouts in their politics. But you have the temerity to accuse others of not becoming. Not good. By the way I don’t defend TPLF rather I Support the policy of EPRDF if it help you to remove the political cloud you have on those who are on the opposite end of your view. TPLF is not equal to EPRDF and never will be. Unlike you and many others, I believe EPRDF was and is the “governing party” of Ethiopia and not TPLF or ODP or ADP or SEPDM. Any failure or success in Ethiopia will be attributed to EPRDF. That was my position and is still my position. So when you and your likes tried to single out and attribute the failures to “one party” from the parties that constitute the “front-party”, it is just politicking and nothing truth in it. Regards

Hey Blink, The statement from EPRDF is crystal clear and timely. Abiy Ahmed seem to be struggling to fill the big boots left void in 4Kilo. He have got no clarity whatsoever to what he wants and how to hit the ground running with all the support and popularity he had at the beginning. He is losing his acceptance and support from most Ethiopians. He couldn't address the burning issues in the country and yet he is excessively self-obsessed. ODP and ADP are at crossroad with their respective constituents and they might end up losing election to OLF and NAMA respectively. EPRDF at the moment is a defunct coalition and that's mainly thanks to Abiy's ego, he thought he could lead Ethiopia by social media hype. There are two bitter pills in my opinion: He need to make U-turn and work with EPRDF than his individualistic bravado. Second, he need to come forth and say I tried to take the country as far as I could and now it is time for me to bow out and leave. TPLF have had their time and I don't think they would be naive enough to go back and the indications are they are all determined to improve the livelihood of Tegarus in Tigray and they seem content.

selam aman h 1st, u don't have any idea how eprdf function and how it works, u just simply saying things based on the information that u got from twisted news and YouTube videos, those twisted news, youtube vidoes and officials statements comes out of ethiopia r mainly to tackle the inferiority and superiority complex of ethiopia's different social groups, they r not a real news or accurate news. 2nd, the failed 3A "medemer" strategy means the end of ethiopia as we know it today, which means a civil war or a separation of tigrai from ethiopia. 3rd, tplf can rule tigrai for thousand years, if the people of tigrai happy about it, it is not the rest of ethiopia concern. and tplf can send it's 6% representatives for poltical postion on the federal gov level according to the constitution. no ethiopian will disagree with that. 4th, the current constitution will be implemented accordingly and we will see tigrai(lessthan 3%of gdp and mainly practice orthodox Christian habesha culture) will look like when it's implemented accordingly. I know u will never get it, u over 60 so it don't matter if u get it or no.

Revised Common Lectionary – Year C
First Sunday of Advent: Jeremiah 33:14-16; Psalm 25:1-10; 1 Thessalonians 3:9-13; Luke 21:25-36
Every spiritual blessing - in Christ: Come to Him and receive His blessing.
‘I will bring Judah and Israel back from captivity and will rebuild them as they were before. I will cleanse them from all the sin they have committed against Me... Then this city will bring Me renown, joy, praise, and honour before all nations on earth...’(Jeremiah 33:7-9). What great blessing lay ahead of God’s people! God was pointing His people to the place of blessing: Jesus Christ - ‘the righteous Branch from David’s line’(Jeremiah 33:15-16). ‘In Christ’, we have ‘every spiritual blessing’: ‘No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him’(Ephesians 1:3; 1 Corinthians 2:9). God has so much blessing to give to us. Come to Him and receive His blessing: ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you; I will show you wonderful and marvellous things that you know nothing about’(Jeremiah 33:3).
We put no confidence in the flesh. Our confidence is in the Lord. He is the God of our salvation.
‘Lead me in Thy truth, and teach me, for Thou art the God of my salvation’(Psalm 25:5). We can pray this prayer with confidence. God has given His promise: ‘He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble His way’(Psalm 25:9). Our confidence is in the Lord. We ‘put no confidence in the flesh’(Philippians 3:3). Jesus teaches us that God hides Himself from the proud and reveals Himself to the humble: ‘…Father…Thou hast hidden these things from the wise and revealed them to babes’(Matthew 11:25). In the life of faith, the most important thing is the right attitude - not the ‘best education’! The proud may concern themselves with impressing ‘the right people’. For the humble, there is something more important - pleasing God. His opinion is the one that really matters!
Our love is to be holy. Our holiness is to be loving.
We need both ‘love’ and ‘holiness’(1 Thessalonians 3:12-13). Our love is to be holy. Our holiness is to be loving. Getting the right balance between love and holiness is like walking a tightrope. You can easily lose your balance and fall off. We can be too soft - all love and no holiness. We can be too hard - all holiness and no love. Love doesn’t mean ‘anything goes ’ - ‘I don’t care how you live’. That’s not love. That’s indifference, a ‘couldn’t care less’ attitude. Holiness doesn’t mean looking down your nose at other people - ‘You’ve sinned and I will never let you forget it’. Don’t be like ‘the Pharisees’. They wanted to ‘stone the woman caught in adultery’. We must not ‘stone’ people with our ‘hot tongue and cold shoulder’! Be like Jesus. Show love - ‘I don’t condemn you’ - and holiness - ‘Do not sin again’(John 8:3-11).
True giving is our response to God’s grace. Let us give ourselves to Him.
The ‘poor widow’ gave her ‘all’ to the Lord (Luke 21:1-4). True giving is a response to ‘the grace of God’. Learning to appreciate ‘the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ’, we will learn to give with ‘abundance of joy’ and ‘wealth of liberality’ (2 Corinthians 8:1-2, 9). Let us give ourselves to our Lord. True Christian living will not be easy (12; 2 Timothy 3:12). The Lord will be with us in all our difficulties (Luke 21:15, 18-19). Christ will return ‘with power and great glory’(Luke 21:27). For some this will be a time of ‘distress... perplexity... fear... foreboding’(Luke 21:25-26). For others, it will be the Day of ‘redemption’(Luke 21:28). To all, there is the warning: ‘Take heed to yourselves... watch at all times’(Luke 21:34-36). Let us restore Him to His rightful place in our lives - ‘...all the people came to Him...’(Luke 21:38).

Second Sunday of Advent: Malachi 3:1-4; Psalm 27 (or Luke 1:68-79); Philippians 1:3-11; Luke 3:1-6
We come to the Lord’s House so that we might offer our heartfelt worship to the Lord.
‘One thing have I asked of the Lord…that I may dwell in the House of the Lord…’(Psalm 27:4). What are we doing when we gather in the Lord’s House for worship? This is what we are doing - ‘Wait for the Lord; be strong and let your heart take courage’(Psalm 27:14). Where does our strength come from? It comes from God: ‘The Lord is my light and my salvation… The Lord is the stronghold of my life’. Strong in Him, we say, ‘My heart will not fear… I will be confident’(Psalm 27:1, 3).
We come to the Lord’s House so that we might receive encouragement from the Lord and be changed by the Lord.
Do you feel like you can`t go on? Do you feel like giving up? Here`s God`s Word of encouragement for you: ‘He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the Day of Jesus Christ’(Philippians 1:6). God finishes what He starts - ‘He didn`t bring us this far to leave us. He didn`t teach us to swim to let us drown. He didn`t build His home in us to move away. He didn`t lift us up to let us down’. In all the changes of life, we must remember this: God is faithful. His love is unchanged, unchanging and unchangeable. We don`t keep going because we are strong. We are ‘kept by the power of God’(1 Peter 1:5). Called to live ‘to the glory and praise of God’(Philippians 1:11), let us remember that God is “the refiner’s fire” (Malachi 3:2). He is “the “purifier of silver” (Malachi 3:3). May our “faith – of greater worth than gold” be “refined by fire.” May our “faith … be proved genuine.” May our “faith … result in praise, glory and honour when Jesus Christ is revealed” (1 Peter 1:7). We have been “called” to “be holy” (1 Peter 1:15-16). As we seek to walk with God in holiness, let us never forget this – “you were redeemed … with the precious blood of Christ” (1 Peter 1:18-19).
We come to the Lord’s House so that we might receive strength from the Lord and be sent out to proclaim the Word of the Lord.
We sing our song of praise to the Lord – “Blessed be the Lord God …” (Luke 1:68). May we grow “strong” in the Lord (Luke 1:80). John's message came from ‘God’(Luke 3:2). He did not begin with love. He preached about sin and divine judgment, warning his hearers to ‘flee from the wrath to come’(Luke 3:7). He called for ‘repentance’(Luke 3:3, 8). This was not what people wanted to hear. Before we can rejoice in the Good News concerning salvation, we must recognize our sin and our need of salvation. John prepared the way for Jesus. ‘All have sinned’, ‘The wages of sin is death’ - This is the ‘bad news; which prepares us to receive, with joyful thanksgiving, ‘the Good News’: ‘the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord’(Romans 3:23; Romans 6:23).

Third Sunday of Advent: Zephaniah 3:14-20; Psalm 45 (or Isaiah 12:2-6); Philippians 4:4-7; Luke 3:7-18
Sin brings sadness. Salvation brings gladness.
The story of sin – ‘Woe to the city of oppressors, rebellious and defiled! She has not obeyed His voice. She has not accepted correction. She has not trusted in the Lord. She has not drawn near to her God’ (Zephaniah 3:1-2) – is followed by the story of salvation - ‘Sing, O Daughter of Zion; shout aloud, O Israel! Be glad and rejoice with all your heart, O Daughter of Jerusalem! The Lord has taken away your punishment. He has turned back your enemy... The Lord your God is with you. He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you. He will renew you in His love. He will rejoice over you with singing’(Zephaniah 3:14-17). Why does God speak to us about our sin? He is preparing the way for His Word of salvation. He speaks to us of His coming wrath - flee from the coming wrath (Luke 3:7). He is preparing our hearts for receiving the Saviour – “the Christ … is coming … He will baptize you in the Holy Spirit and fire” (Luke 3:15-16). The story of our sin is full of sadness. The story of God’s salvation fills us with gladness - ‘Rejoice and be glad! The Redeemer has come’(Mission Praise, 573).
Jesus Christ is our Saviour and Lord. May our whole life be filled with praise to Him.
Jesus Christ is ‘the most excellent of men’(Psalm 45:2). He is more than that. He is God. In Psalm 45:6, we read these words - ‘Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever’. We read them again in Hebrews 1:8. They are the words which God the Father speaks to His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. How does the Word of God describe Jesus Christ? - ‘He is your Lord’. How are we to respond to Him? - We are to approach Him with ‘reverence’. We are to ‘honour’ Him. We are to ‘bow down’ and ‘worship’ Him. We are to ‘obey’ Him (Psalm 45:11). Think of the “Good News’ of our Lord Jesus Christ - ‘the Son of God loved me and gave Himself for me’. Let your heart overflow with praise to the Lord Jesus Christ - What a wonderful Saviour He is (1; Galatians 2:20)! Let us celebrate His Name in this generation. Let Him be praised ‘for ever and ever’(Psalm 45:17). May our personal faith - ‘I will praise You, O Lord... God is my Salvation... The Lord is my Strength and my Song...’- become our public testimony - making Christ ‘known among the nations’, telling ‘all the world’ what the Lord has done for us (Isaiah 12:1-2, 4-5).
Christ has claimed us for Himself. May He have every part of our life.
‘Christ Jesus has made me His own’(Philippians 3:12). In Paul`s words, we hear an echo of Jesus` words, ‘You did not choose Me... I chose you’(John 15:16). Christ has claimed us for Himself. He has laid claim to every part of our life. We are to ‘rejoice in the Lord always’(Philippians 4:4). We are to bring ‘everything’ to Him in prayer (Philippians 4:6). We are to be ‘content in all circumstances’(Philippians 4:11-12). We are to face every challenge with confidence in His strength - ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me’ (Philippians 4:13). We are to trust Him to ‘supply’ our ‘every need’(Philippians 4:19). In every situation, we can come to the Lord, trusting in His promise: ‘the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus’(Philippians 4:7). Whatever is happening, take it to the Lord in prayer and let Him give you His peace.

Fourth Sunday of Advent: Micah 5:2-5a; Psalm 80:1-7 (or Luke 1:47-55); Hebrews 10:5-10; Luke 1:39-45, (46-55)
Worshipped by shepherds, Jesus is the Good Shepherd, the Great Shepherd and the Chief Shepherd.
In Micah 5:2, we have a prophecy concerning the birth of Jesus at ‘Bethlehem’. This prophecy invites us to ‘go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about’. At ‘Bethlehem’, we see ‘shepherds, glorifying and praising God’(Luke 2:15, 20). We also see Jesus our Shepherd. He is the One whom the shepherds worshipped. He is the One who ‘will stand and shepherd His flock in the strength of the Lord...’. He is ‘the Good Shepherd’. He ‘laid down His life’ for us. He is ‘the Great Shepherd’. He ‘was raised from the dead’ for us. He is ‘the Chief Shepherd’. He will ‘come’ again for us (Micah 5:4; John 10:14; Hebrews 13:20; 1 Peter 5:4). Jesus our ‘Shepherd’ gives us ‘strength’ to ‘do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with our God’(Micah 6:8).
What must I do to be saved? – Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.
‘Restore us, O God, make Your face shine upon us, that we may be saved’(Psalm 80:3). This prayer for salvation is repeated with a growing sense of God’s greatness - ‘O God Almighty’(Psalm 80:7), ‘O Lord God Almighty’(Psalm 80:19). To those who are asking the question of salvation - ‘What must I do to be saved?’- , God gives His answer - ‘Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved’(Acts 16:30-31). What does the Lord say to those who look to Christ for salvation? - ‘The Lord will bless you and watch over you. The Lord will smile on you and be kind to you. The Lord will look on you with favour and give you peace’(Numbers 6:24-26). Let us worship Him: ‘Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! Through Christ, God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing that heaven has to offer’(Ephesians 1:3).
Saved by our Lord Jesus Christ, let us praise Him with joyful songs of celebration.
In Luke 1:46-55, we have a great ‘song of praise.’. God was doing ‘a new thing’. His people were rejoicing in Him. Great things were happening. Greater things were going to happen. Soon, the Saviour would be born. The birth of our Saviour - This was something to celebrate! From the birth of Jesus, we look forward to the death of Jesus – we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all“ (Hebrews 10:10). Here, we have something else to celebrate!

Season of Christmas: Nativity of the Lord (Christmas Day) I – Isaiah 9:2-7; Psalm 96; Titus 2:11-14; Luke 2:1-14, (15-20)
Glory to God in the highest – our Saviour has come.
The prophecy has been spoken - ‘To us a Child is born, to us a Son is given…’ The prophecy has been fulfilled - ‘Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you: He is Christ the Lord’.
Jesus Christ is our great Saviour. He is our ‘Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace’ (Isaiah 9:6: Luke 2:11).
Jesus Christ has brought to us a great salvation. Through faith in Him, we enter God’s heavenly and eternal ‘Kingdom’ (Isaiah 9:7: Luke 1:30-33).
This is ‘Good News of great joy’- for ‘all the people’, for ‘all generations’.
Let us rejoice in the Lord, as Mary, the mother of Jesus, did - ‘My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour… for the Mighty One has done great things for me…’
Let us join with the angels in saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest…’ (Luke 2:10; 1:46-50; 2:14).
Christ: King of glory, King of love - may the glory of His love shine in us.
‘The Lord reigns’ (Psalms 96:10; 97:1). ‘The Lord is King!’
He is not only ‘the King all-glorious above’. He is ‘the King of love’. He is ‘our Maker, Defender, Redeemer and Friend!’
He is not only ‘the King of heaven’. He is ‘the God of grace’. He is ‘the King of mercy’ (Church Hymnary, 35, 36, 388, 360, 86).
His reign is not to be restricted to some faraway heaven. It is not to be a reign that is far removed from the practicalities of our everyday life.
He is to reign in our hearts. He is to reign in every part of our life.
Let His reign of love begin. Let His grace and mercy control all that you do.
We must pray, ‘Reign in me, Sovereign Lord, reign in me’. When we say, ‘Let Your Kingdom come’ and ‘let Your will be done’, we must pray, ‘Captivate my heart. Establish there Your throne’(Mission Praise, 570).
Christ is coming in glory. Christ is preparing us for glory.
We read in Titus 2:11,13 of Christ’s coming in grace- ‘the grace of God has appeared for the salvation of all people’- and His coming in glory- ‘we wait for the blessed hope - the glorious appearing of our great God and Saviour, Jesus Christ’. From grace to glory - This is the journey from Christ’s first coming to His Second Coming.
It is also the journey of our life of faith. We begin with the forgiveness of our sins. our final destination is glory, heavenly and eternal glory, the glory of God. We live by the grace of God. We look forward to the glory of God.
God wants us to live as ‘a people of His own who are zealous for good deeds’(Titus 2:14). If we are to be ‘zealous for good deeds’, we must first be zealous for Jesus Christ. Do good - but never forget, ‘He saved us - not because of deeds done by us…’(Titus 3:8, 4-6).
The full revelation of Christ’s glory is still to come. Let it begin in us now.
God is in control! Jesus was born in Bethlehem. Long before it happened, God had it planned (Luke 2:1-7; Micah 5:2-3).
As we approach Christ’s Return, God still has His plan. He is still in control.
The birth of Christ is not merely an event from the past. It is also a message for the future.
We look back so that we can move forward.
We are fearful about many things. ‘What’s the world coming to?’, we ask. God turns our question on its head: ‘Christ is coming to the world’.
From His first coming, we look on to His Second Coming - He ‘will come to all the people’(Luke 2:10): ‘every eye will see Him’(Revelation 1:7).
His Return invites us to ask another question: ‘when the Son of man comes, will He find faith on earth?’(Luke 18:8).
For you, is it still ‘before Christ’? Let the ‘new age’ begin: Let Christ be ‘born this day’(Luke 2:11) - in your heart!

Season of Christmas: Nativity of the Lord (Christmas Day) II – Isaiah 62:6-12; Psalm 97; Titus 3:4-7; Luke 2: (1-7), 8-20
God has given us ‘a new Name’. It is ‘the Name which is above every name’, the Name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ (Isaiah 62:2; Philippians 2:9-11).
Christ loves us. He has given Himself for us. He calls us His ‘Bride’ (Ephesians 5:25-27; 2 Corinthians 11:2; Revelation 21:2, 9).
Through faith in Christ, we have become ‘the Holy People’. Through Him, we are ‘the Redeemed of the Lord’. We have been ‘Sought After’ by the Lord. In Him, we are ‘the City No Longer Deserted’ (Isaiah 62:12; 1 Peter 2:9-9-10; 1:18-19; Luke 19:10; John 14:18).
‘There is a Name I love to hear… It tells me of a Saviour’s love, who died to set me free. It tells me of His precious blood, the sinner’s perfect plea… Jesus, the Name I love so well, the Name I love to hear! … O how I love the Saviour’s Name, the sweetest Name on earth!’(Mission Praise, 672).
‘The Lord reigns’(Psalm 97:1). ‘The Lord is King!’ As we worship the Lord our King, let us focus our attention on Christ, the newborn King : “Come and worship Christ, the new-born King” (Church Hymnary, 182). At the place of Christ’s birth, we learn that the reign of God is the reign of His love.
When we look away from ourselves to our Saviour, Jesus Christ, we rejoice in this: ‘He saved us - not because of deeds done by us…’ (Titus 3:4-6). This is the Good News of great joy. We hear this Good News – the birth of our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ – and we give glory to God in the highest (Luke 2:10-11, 14).

Season of Christmas: Nativity of the Lord (Christmas Day) III – Isaiah 52:7-10; Psalm 98; Hebrews 1:1-4, (5-12); John 1:1-14
Good News
‘Good News’- Let us ‘shout for joy’. ‘Good News’- Let us sing ‘songs of joy’.
There is the Good News of God’s reign - ‘Your God reigns’.
There is the Good News of our redemption - ‘The Lord has redeemed’ us.
We are not to keep the Good News to ourselves. This ‘news of happiness’ is to be shared with everyone. We must let ‘all the ends of the earth see the salvation of our God’.
‘Christ died for our sins’- This is Good News.
Christ was ‘raised on the third day’- This is Good News.
‘Jesus is Lord’- This is Good News.
This is the Good News we must ‘pass on’ to others. In our world, there is so much bad news. We must not let the Good News be drowned out by the bad news. We must make sure that the people hear the Good News - loud and clear (Isaiah 52:7-10; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Mission Praise, 249).
God loves us.
‘Exalt the Lord our God… Make a joyful noise to the Lord’ (Psalms 99:5,9; 98:4,6; 100:1).
We are to worship the Lord with joy. We are to glorify God. We are to enjoy Him.
In our worship, we must never forget the holiness of God: ‘He is holy! … The Lord our God is holy!’ (Psalm 99:5, 9).
In our worship, we rejoice in the love of God: ‘His steadfast love endures for ever… He has done marvellous things!’(Psalms 100:5; 98:1).
The God of ‘awesome purity’ loves us with the most perfect love of all: ‘No earthly father loves like Thee…’ Let us worship Him with holy fear and heartfelt love: ‘O how I fear Thee, living God, with deepest, tenderest fears… with trembling hope and penitential tears! Yet I may love Thee too, O Lord, Almighty as Thou art, for Thou hast stooped to ask of me the love of my poor heart’ (Church Hymnary, 356).
Let us worship Christ – our Lord and our God.
From the heights of heaven and the depths of suffering, ‘God… has spoken to us by His Son’ (Hebrews 1:1-2).
Jesus Christ is God’s ‘Word’ to us. He is ‘the Word’ who came from heaven: ‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God’. He is ‘the Word’ who came to earth: ‘the Word became flesh and dwelt among us…’ (John 1:1-14).
In heaven, He is worshipped by angels: ‘Let all God’s angels worship Him’(Hebrews 1:6).
On earth, ‘He suffered death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone’(Hebrews 2:9).
We see the greatness of Christ in both His heavenly glory and His saving grace. None can compare with Him. He is our Lord. He is our Saviour. We consider all that He has done for us - ‘the nail marks in His hands…’- and we worship Him - ‘my Lord and my God’(John 20:19-20,24-28).
Keep your eyes on Christ - the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.
Jesus Christ is the Word of God. He is the Beginning. He is also the End (John 1:1-3; Revelation 21:6).
He is ‘the Word… made flesh’. ‘We have seen His glory’(14). This is only the beginning. When He returns, we shall see His glory - ‘we shall see Him as He is’(1 John 3:2).
From Him, there is creation (John 1:1-3).
From Him, there is salvation (John 1:12-13).
In Him, we receive the forgiveness of sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit (John 1:29, 32-34).
He is the Word of God, the Lamb of God and the Son of God (John 1:1, 29, 34). When we look at Jesus Christ, we see God - ‘the ‘Word was God’(John 1:1), ‘No one has ever seen God; the only Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has made Him known’(John 1:18).
Do you want to know what God is like? - Look at Jesus (John 14:9).
What do we see when we look at Him? - ‘the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world’ (John 1:29).

January 1: The Naming of Jesus – Numbers 6:22-27; Psalm 8; Galatians 4:4-7 (or Philippians 2:5-11); Luke 2:15-21
His Name was called JESUS (Luke 2:21).
Christmas is over – but let’s not forget Jesus. He is still here. He is still with us.
He is for New Year’s Day as well as Christmas Day. He is for every day.
The New Year has begun. Let there be more than a new year. Let there be new life – the new life that Jesus brings.
We have celebrated His birth.
It is similar to the birth of any other child. It is a time for joyful thanksgiving.
It is different from the celebration of any other child. This is the special Child. This is God’s Son. He is Jesus. He is the Saviour. He brings new life to the world.
On the first Christmas Day, the announcement was made: There is born to you this day in the city of David a Saviour who is Christ the Lord (Luke 2:11).
We move on from the first Christmas. We move on to today. We do not leave Jesus behind. He is with us still.
On this day, any day, every day, we hear God’s call: Let new life begin.
New Year’s Day comes around just once a year. Every day is new life day.
Every day, God is speaking to us. He speaks to us about new life.
This is much more than the traditional greeting – We wish you a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
In the Name of Jesus, we hear the Good News of new life. He has been born in the city of David.
This is Good News for us. This is Good News for today.
The New Year has begun. Let new life begin.
Let Christ be ‘born this day’(Luke 2:11). Let Him be born in your heart!
The Name of Jesus is the Name of love.
The Name of Jesus is the Name of love, perfect love, the greatest love of all. There is no love like the love of Jesus.
At Christmas time, we look back to His birth. We celebrate His continuing love.
On New Year’s Day, we look on to the future. We commit ourselves to loving Him who first loved us.
In the Name of Jesus, God speaks to us with a call to consecration and a promise of blessing.
* Do we love the Name of Jesus? – Let us consecrate ourselves to Him.
‘Separate… to the Lord… Separate… from wine and strong drink’ (Numbers 6:2-3): These two thoughts are closely connected in the New Testament - ‘Do not get drunk with wine… Be filled with the Spirit’ (Ephesians 5:18). We are to be ‘holy to the Lord’ (Numbers 6:8). ‘Consecrated to the Lord’, our whole life must be controlled by one thing: ‘Do all to the glory of God’ (1 Corinthians 10:31).
* Do we love the Name of Jesus? – Let us seek His blessing in our lives.
Motivated by a desire for God’s glory, we will enjoy God’s blessing (Numbers 6:22-27). God’s blessing is not a ‘cheap’ thing, something that doesn’t matter very much.
Remember Esau (Genesis 25:29-34). He couldn’t be bothered. He couldn’t care less. God’s blessing meant nothing to him. He didn’t want God’s blessing.
What did God do? - He gave it to Jacob.
‘The Lord bless you…’ - Do you want this? Or must God find somebody else?
In the Name of Jesus, we have the victory.
‘The Lord is ‘majestic’ (Psalm 8:1, 9). He does not remain remote. He does not keep His distance. This is the message of Christmas. The Saviour has been born. God has not remained in heaven. He has come to earth. He has come near to us. He is God with us.
In the birth of Jesus, we see God’s greatness, the greatness of His love. His love makes all the difference.
* When we feel forgotten. He remembers us.
* When we feel unloved. He cares for us (Psalm 8:4).
* When we are tempted. He will ‘still the enemy’ (Psalm 8:2).
At the beginning of a New Year, we are reminded of God our Creator (Psalm 8:5-8).
The God of creation is the God of our salvation. From Bethlehem, the place of Christ’s birth, we look forward. We see Jesus, crucified for us. In His death, there is victory. Christ has won the victory for us. Christ has triumphed over ‘him who has the power of death.’ Christ has triumphed over ‘the devil.’ (Hebrews 2:8-9, 14).
We rejoice in Christ’s victory. We worship Him. We sing, “Majesty, worship His Majesty. Jesus, who died, now glorified, King of all kings’.
Jesus leads us on from victory to victory.
At the Cross, Christ won the victory over Satan. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, Christ makes His victory real in our life here and now.
* ‘God has sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts’ (Galatians 4:6).
The Spirit is not a reward we earn by being good people. The Spirit is God’s gift (Titus 3:5). In Galatians 3:13-14, Paul connects the gift of the Spirit with Christ’s death for us and our faith in Christ. We do not come to God with our religion in one hand and our morality in the other, insisting that we deserve to be blessed by Him. We look away from ourselves to Christ - ‘Nothing in my hand I bring, simply to Thy Cross I cling’(Church Hymnary, 83).
All pride in ourselves must be brought to Christ’s Cross as we humbly pray, ‘Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me, break me, melt me, mould me, fill me’(Mission Praise, 613).
God has given His Spirit to us. Let’s give ourselves to Him - to ‘be filled with the Spirit’(Ephesians 5:18).
* ‘He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the Day of Jesus Christ’(Philippians 1:6).
Do you feel like you can`t go on? Do you feel like giving up?
God gives us His Word of encouragement. He will bring His good work to completion.
God finishes what He starts - ‘He didn`t bring us this far to leave us. He didn`t teach us to swim to let us drown. He didn`t build His home in us to move away. He didn`t lift us up to let us down’.
In all the changes of life, we must remember this: God is faithful. His love is unchanged, unchanging and unchangeable.
We don`t keep going because we are strong. We are ‘kept by the power of God’ (1 Peter 1:5).
‘Jesus Christ is Lord’ (Philippians 2:11) – He will give you the strength to keep going when you feel like giving up.
We do not find our own victory. We receive His victory. The victory does not come from deep down within ourselves. It comes from high above us. It comes from Jesus Christ our Lord.
This is not our victory. It is His victory. All the power comes from Him. All the glory goes to Him.
In ‘humility’ let us live ‘to the glory and praise of God’ (Philippians 2:3; 1:11).

January 1: when observed as New Year’s Day – Ecclesiastes 3:1-13; Psalm 8; Revelation 21:1-6a; Matthew 25: 31-46
Let’s begin the year with worship: “O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is Your Name” (Psalm 8:1).
How excellent is our Saviour – He takes away the emptiness of life without Him.
‘God has put eternity into man’s mind’ (Ecclesiastes 3:11). In every human heart, there is a God-shaped blank. It can only be filled by Jesus Christ.
Many people try to find true happiness without opening their heart to Jesus Christ. That’s like ‘trying to catch the wind’ (Ecclesiastes 4:16). True happiness keeps slipping through your fingers. There’s always something missing - ‘an aching void the world can never fill’ (Church Hymnary, 663).
Jesus Christ stands at the door of every human heart. He knocks. He waits for your answer. He says, ‘Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in…’ (Revelation 3:20). Will you invite Him into your heart? He is waiting for you to pray, ‘Come into my heart, Lord Jesus. Come in today. Come in to stay. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus’.
How excellent is our Saviour – He is preparing us for a glorious future.
Our Saviour is ‘Faithful and True’. He is ‘the Word of God’. He is our ‘Lord’ and ‘King’(Revelation 19:11,13,16).
We are invited to ‘come’ to Him. The invitation - ‘Come, gather together for the great supper of God’- is a call to come to Christ (Revelation 19:17). We come to Christ so that we might ‘reign with Him’(Revelation 20:6).
Coming to Christ is only the beginning. God is preparing us for something even better - reigning with Him. This is a great future - ‘no more death or mourning or crying or pain’(Revelation 21:4).
There is, however, a Word of warning for those who refuse to come to Christ for salvation - ‘If anyone’s name was not found written in the Book of Life, he was thrown into the lake of fire’; ‘Their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulphur’ (Revelation 20:15; 21:8). ‘Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved’(Acts 16:31).
How excellent is our Saviour – He gives us joy as we serve Him day-by-day.
We are to be faithful to God (Matthew 25:21). There is a reward for faithfulness (Matthew 25:29; 1 Corinthians 3:10-15). Our ‘reward’ is not to get more glory for ourselves: ‘what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord’(2 Corinthians 4:5). Bringing glory to God - this is to be our greatest joy.
We are not to be thinking, ‘What am I going to get out of this?’. We are to be asking, ‘What can I give to others?’.
The ‘righteous’ are not full of boasting about their ‘righteous’ actions (Matthew 25:37-38). The Lord’s true servants do not draw attention to themselves.
Do you have ‘talents’? Yes - you do! Use them! ‘Serve the Lord with gladness’(Psalm 100:2).
Let this be your ‘reward’: the joyful privilege of bringing blessing to others and glory to God.
On earth, we begin to ‘enter the joy of our Lord’(21). In heaven, there will be ‘fullness of joy’and ‘pleasure for evermore’
(Psalm 16:11).

Second Sunday after Christmas Day: Jeremiah 31:7-14; Psalm 147:12-20; Ephesians 1:3-14; John 1:(1-9), 10-18
In love, the Lord draws us to Himself.
‘I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness’ (Jeremiah 31:3).
So often, we have been like ‘the prodigal son’ (Luke 15:11-24). We have walked away from our Father’s House. We have wandered off into ‘the far country’. We feel that we are far from God, yet still He draws near to us.
The Lord is at work in our hearts. He is bringing us ‘to our senses’. He is reminding us of His love. He is drawing us back to Himself. In love, He is calling us home again. He is speaking to our hearts. He is saying to us, ‘I have loved you with an everlasting love’.
As His love reaches our hearts, ‘the prodigal son’ becomes ‘the returning son’: ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son’. ‘Bring me back, let me come back, for you are the Lord my God!’ (Jeremiah 31:18).
In love, the Lord brings us into fellowship with His people.
‘The Lord builds up Jerusalem. He gathers the exiles of Israel. He heals the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds’ (Psalm 147:2-3).
This is much more than the building of the city of Jerusalem with bricks and mortar. This is God building up His people in their ‘most holy faith’ (Jude 20). This is God blessing His people as they gather together to worship Him.
In Christ, we are ‘being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by His Spirit’ (Ephesians 2:22). The Lord draws us to Himself. He brings us into fellowship with His people.
He calls us to worship Him: ‘Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving’. He ‘blesses’ us through ‘His Word’. He ‘blesses’ us in ‘the Spirit’: ‘He sends His Word… and the waters flow’ (Psalm 147:7, 12-13, 18; John 7:37-39).
In love, the Lord calls us to be changed by His love.
‘By grace you have been saved through faith… for good works’ (Ephesians 2:8-10). God calls us to live a ‘holy’ life. We cannot make ourselves holy. We are spiritually ‘dead’. We need to be ‘made alive’- by God. Holiness does not come from ourselves. It comes from the Lord.
Long before we ever thought of loving Him - He loved us. Our love for Him is so changeable. His love for us is unchanged, unchanging and unchangeable. It is eternal. He loved us ‘before the foundation of the world’. He will love us ‘in the world to come’. This is the love of God, the love which inspires us and enables us to live a ‘holy’ life (Ephesians 2:1; 1:4; 2:7).
When we realize the truth concerning ourselves - ‘nothing good dwells within me’(Romans 7:18) - and God - He is ‘rich in mercy’ (Ephesians 2:4) - , we will ‘praise His glorious grace’ (Ephesians 1:6).
We praise His glorious grace when we receive His love and are changed by His love.
In love, the Lord calls us to be changed by His glory.
Jesus Christ is the Word of God. He is the Beginning. He is also the End (John 1:1-3; Revelation 21:6).
He is ‘the Word… made flesh’. ‘We have seen His glory’ (John 1:14). This is only the beginning. When He returns, we shall see His glory - ‘we shall see Him as He is’(1 John 3:2).
From Him, there is creation (John 1:1-3). From Him, there is salvation (John 1:12-13). In Him, we receive the forgiveness of sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit (John 1:29, 32-34). He is the Word of God, the Lamb of God and the Son of God (John 1:1, 29, 34).
When we look at Jesus Christ, we see God - ‘the ‘Word was God’ (John 1:1), ‘No one has ever seen God; the only Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has made Him known’ (John 1:18).
Do you want to know what God is like? - Look at Jesus (John 14:9). What do we see when we look at Him? - ‘the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world’ (John 1:29).
We look at  the Lamb of God, crucified for us. We see love – the greatest love of all. It is divine love. It is eternal love. It is a love which calls us to say, with Paul,
I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me …
… one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what
is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has
called me heavenward in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:12-14).

Season of Epiphany: Epiphany of the Lord - Isaiah 60:1-6; Psalm 72:1-7, 10-14; Ephesians 3:1-12; Matthew 2:1-12
Let the light of Christ shine.
“Arise, shine; for your Light has come… the Lord will be your everlasting Light” (Isaiah 60:1, 19-20). Jesus Christ is “the Light of the world.” When we “follow Him”, we “will not walk in darkness.” We “will have the light of life” (John 8:12).
We are living in difficult times. We are surrounded by much darkness. We must not be discouraged - “the lamp of God has not yet gone out” (1 Samuel 3:3). When the darkness threatens to overcome the Light, we must take encouragement from God’s Word - “The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” (John 1:5).
When the darkness seems to be everywhere, put your trust in the Lord - “The Lord is my light and my salvation - whom shall I fear?”- and let “His Word” be “a lamp to your feet and a light to your path” (Psalms 27:1; 119:105).
Let the words of Scripture lead to thoughts of the Saviour.
* Read the words - “His Name” shall “endure for ever” (Psalm 72:17) - and think of Christ.
His Name is “the Name above all other names.” He is “the King of kings and Lord of lords” (Philippians 2:9-11; Revelation 19:16).
* Read the words - “all nations call Him blessed” (Psalm 72:17) - , and think of Christ.
“From every tribe and language and people and nation”, God’s people have been redeemed by the precious blood of Christ (Revelation 5:9).
* Read the words - “May His glory fill the whole earth!” (Psalm 72:19) - , and think of Christ.
In the “new heaven and new earth”, “the holy city” will shine with “the glory of God.” “Its radiance”, “like a very precious jewel”, will be shining from this “lamp”: Jesus Christ, “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (Revelation 21:1-2, 10-11, 23; John 1:29).
In Christ, we are called to salvation, sanctification and service.
By the grace of God we are called to salvation - “saved through faith”- , sanctification - “for good works” - , and service - “according to the gift of God’s grace by the working of His power”, we are enabled “to preach the unsearchable riches of Christ” (Ephesians 2:8-10; 3:7-8).
When we consider all this, we say in our hearts, “To God be the glory!” (Ephesians 3:21).
We are “strengthened with power through His Spirit in our inner being” so that we might live as those who are saved, sanctified and serving.
Even when we are deeply conscious of our own great weakness, we draw encouragement from this: God is “able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us” (Ephesians 3:16, 20).
We grow in grace as we share in fellowship - “eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit” (Ephesians 4:3).
Be wise - worship the Saviour.
We read “the story of the wise men.”. It is not so much about the wise men. It is about Jesus. He is the central character.
We are not told how many wise men there were. The word, “three” does not appear (Matthew 2:1). We are not told their names. We are not told exactly where they came from - just, they came “from the East” (Matthew 2:11).
The important thing is that they made their journey. They came, seeking Jesus: “Where is he…?” They came “to worship Him” (Matthew 2:2). The wise men were led to Jesus not only by “His star” (Matthew 2:2) but also by the Scriptures.
When asked where the child was to be born, they answered by quoting from the Scriptures (Matthew 2:5-6; Micah 5:2). Wise men are still led to Christ through the Scriptures.
Reading the Scriptures, we become wise for salvation as we find Christ who is our Wisdom (2 Timothy 3:15; 1 Corinthians 1:30).
Bethlehem was a “little town.” Humanly speaking, it did not have any great importance. Its importance is derived from the fact that it was the birth-place of our Saviour. When we think of Bethlehem, we do not think so much of the place as the Saviour who was born there.
Herod says that he wants to go to Bethlehem to worship Jesus (Matthew 2:8). Satan was speaking through Herod. Satan has no intention of worshipping God, and neither had Herod. Satan “comes only to steal and kill and destroy”. Christ comes to give “life… to the full” (John 10:10).
As the story unfolds, it becomes clear that Herod was not a worshipper of Christ but a servant of Satan. The wise men worship Jesus, then they return to their own country.
We know nothing about their return journey, their destination or their life in their own country. Their whole purpose was to point away from themselves to Jesus.

First Sunday after the Epiphany (Baptism of the Lord): Isaiah 43:1-7; Psalm 29; Acts 8:14-17; Luke 3:15-17, 21-22
The Lord is our Salvation.
‘I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour… I am the Lord, apart from Me there is no saviour’(Isaiah 43:3, 11). Isaiah’s words turn our thoughts towards Jesus our Saviour. The Name of Jesus is the Name of our salvation: ‘Salvation is found in no-one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved’(Acts 4:12). ‘How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds in a believer’s ear’; ‘There is a Name I love to hear… It tells me of a Saviour’s love, who died to set me free; it tells me of His precious blood, the sinner’s perfect plea. O how I love the Saviour’s Name, the sweetest Name on earth’; ‘Name of all majesty… See now what God has done, sending His only Son, Christ the beloved One, Jesus is Lord!’(Church Hymnary, 376; Mission Praise, 672, 481).
The Lord is our Strength.
‘The Lord is my Strength…The Lord is the Strength of His people’(Psalm 28:7-8). Our personal strengthening is closely related to the strengthening of God’s people. Don’t be a ‘lone ranger’, going it alone, keeping yourself to yourself. Share your strength with others. Draw strength from them. ‘Let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another’(Hebrews 10:24-25). Where does your strength come from? It comes from ‘the Lord’ who ‘sits enthroned as King for ever’(Psalm 29:10). We grow strong as we listen for ‘the voice of the Lord’(Psalm 29:3-9). Don’t let God’s voice be drowned out – ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God’(Matthew 4:4).
Make sure that it’s real!
Simon the magician was impressed by the ‘signs and great miracles’, but his ‘heart’ was ‘not right before God’(Acts 8:13, 19). The Ethiopian’s conversion was real. Searching the Scriptures, he found the Saviour (Acts 8:30-35). From the Ethiopian’s conversion, we learn of Jesus’promise: ‘Seek and you will find’. From Simon’s tragedy, we hear Jesus’ warning: ‘Not everyone who says to Me, “Lord, Lord”, shall enter the kingdom of heaven…’(Matthew 7:7, 21-23). What is God saying to us from these two very different stories? – ‘Be even more diligent to make your calling and election sure’(2 Peter 1:10). ‘Search me, O God, and know my heart today; Try me, O Lord, and know my thoughts I pray; See if there be some wicked way in me, Cleanse me from every sin and set me free’ (Mission Praise. 587).
Receiving salvation begins with the confession of sin.
John’s message came from ‘God’(Luke 3:2). He did not begin with love. He preached about sin and divine judgment, warning his hearers to ‘flee from the wrath to come’(Luke 3:7). He called for ‘repentance’(Luke 3:3, 8). This was not what people wanted to hear. Before we can rejoice in the Good News concerning salvation, we must recognize our sin and our need of salvation. John prepared the way for Jesus. ‘All have sinned’, ‘The wages of sin is death’ – This is the ‘bad news; which prepares us to receive, with joyful thanksgiving, ‘the Good News’: ‘the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord’(Romans 3:23; 6:23). Like John, we are to point to Jesus, God’s ‘beloved Son’: Before ‘Adam’ was, He is. Pray that the ‘Holy Spirit’ will bring people to Christ (Luke 3:22, 38; Luke 8:58).
——————–
Second Sunday after the Epiphany: Isaiah 62:1-5; Psalm 36:5-10; 1 Corinthians 12:1-11; John 2:1-11
God has given to us the greatest Name.
God has given us ‘a new Name’. It is ‘the Name which is above every name’, the Name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ (Isaiah 62:2; Philippians 2:9-11). Christ loves us. He has given Himself for us. He calls us His ‘Bride’(Ephesians 5:25-27; 2 Corinthians 11:2; Revelation 21:2,9). Through faith in Christ, we have become ‘the Holy People’. Through Him, we are ‘the Redeemed of the Lord’. We have been ‘Sought After’by the Lord. In Him, we are ‘the City No Longer Deserted’(Isaiah 62:12; 1 Peter 2:9-9-10; 1:18-19; Luke 19:10; John 14:18). ‘There is a Name I love to hear… It tells me of a Saviour’s love, who died to set me free. It tells me of His precious blood, the sinner’s perfect plea… Jesus, the Name I love so well, the Name I love to hear!… O how I love the Saviour’s Name, the sweetest Name on earth!’(Mission Praise, 672).
God loves us with the greatest love.
Read about God’s ‘steadfast love’ and rejoice in Him: ‘Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens…How precious is Your steadfast love, O God!…O continue Your steadfast love to those who know You…’(Psalm 36:5, 7, 10). Rejoicing in the Lord’s ‘steadfast love’ is quite different from taking His love for granted. We dare not say, “God loves me. I can do what I like”. We must not become like the wicked – ‘there is no fear of God before his eyes’(Psalm 36:1). Where there is true rejoicing in God’s ‘steadfast love’, there will also be ‘the fear of the Lord’ which ‘is the beginning of wisdom’(Psalm 111:10). A real appreciation of God’s ‘steadfast love’ brings with it a real awareness of our own sinfulness. Knowing how much God loves us leads us to pray, ‘Let not the foot of arrogance come upon me, nor the hand of the wicked drive me away’(Psalm 36:11).
The way of Christ is the way of love.
Paul speaks about ‘gifts of the Spirit’. They are ‘given for the common good’(1 Corinthians 12:4-7). We’re not ‘to show off’: ‘Look at me. The Church can’t do without me’. When we draw attention to ourselves rather than Christ, we are not living ‘by the Spirit of God’. He moves us to say, with our whole heart, ‘Jesus is Lord’(1 Corinthians 12:3). We live in fellowship with one another: ‘the body does not consist of one member but of many’(1 Corinthians 12:14). ‘I’m happy – as long as I’m getting my own way’: We can do without this kind of attitude! What about ‘the common good’? Sometimes, things don’t go according to my plan. Perhaps, my plan needs revising – to take account of ‘the common good’. When self raises its ugly head – ‘It’s my way or no way at all’ -  let’s not forget the ‘still more excellent way’(1 Corinthians 12:3). It is the way of love – Christ’s love!
Let the love of Jesus change you.
Andrew brought his brother, Simon Peter, to Jesus (John 1:40-42). ‘You are… You shall be…’(John 1:42). Jesus looks beyond what we are now. He sees what we will become through the transforming power of His grace. The ‘water’ became ‘wine’(John 2:9). This was the Lord’s doing. In Christ, we have been ‘made alive’. This is the work of God. He is ‘rich in mercy’. He loves us with a ‘great love’(Ephesians 2:4-5). At a wedding, Jesus rejoices with those who rejoice  (John 2:1-11). In the temple, He rebukes those who are proud (John 2:13-17). There was ‘death’ in the temple. Those who were spiritually ‘dead’ acted in complete disregard for the true purpose of God’s House – ‘My House shall be called a house of prayer’(Matthew 21:13). ‘Raised from the dead’, we receive ‘new life’(John 2:22; Romans 6:4). Be real with Jesus. He will bless you (John 2:23-25).
———————
Third Sunday after the Epiphany: Nehemiah 8:1-3, 5-6, 8-10; Psalm 19; 1 Corinthians 12:12-31a; Luke 4:14-21
Let us worship God.
What happens when God’s people ‘gather together’(Nehemiah 8:1)? – (a) We hear the Word of the Lord (Nehemiah 8:2-3, 8). We come to the Lord’s House, seeking a fresh understanding of His Word. We look to the Lord, speaking through His Word, to fill us ‘with great joy’(Nehemiah 8:12). (b) We thank God for His Son, our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ (8:13-18). In ‘the feast of the seventh month’, ‘the Lord’s Feast of Tabernacles’, God’s people remembered how much He had done for them (Leviticus 23:34,42). In the Lord’s Supper, we remember that Christ died for our sins (1 Corinthians 11:23-26). (c) We dedicate our lives to the Lord (Nehemiah 9:2). ‘Do not be conformed to this world’. ‘Be transformed’by God’s Word (Romans 12:2). (d) We worship the Lord (Nehemiah 9:5). Let us ‘praise the Lord our God…’.
Let us hear the Word of the Lord.
God reveals Himself in creation and Scripture. He speaks through His created world. He speaks through His written Word. God is always speaking. He is never silent. Through His created world, God is speaking to us – every day, every night. He is showing us His glory (Psalm 19:1-2). He makes us aware of His presence. He whets our appetite for His written Word. The Scriptures lead us to Christ. Through faith in Him, we receive salvation (2 Timothy 3:15). Christ is the high-point of God’s revelation. He is the living Word (John 1:1, 14). The testimony of the Psalmist – ‘The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul’(Psalm 19:7) – becomes real for us through faith in Christ – ‘I came to Jesus…My soul revived and now I live in Him’(Church Hymnary, 212). Make it real. Come to Christ. Come alive in Him!
With a thankful heart, let us dedicate our lives to the Lord.
Paul speaks about ‘gifts of the Spirit’. They are ‘given for the common good’(1 Corinthians 12:4-7). We’re not ‘to show off’: ‘Look at me. The Church can’t do without me’. When we draw attention to ourselves rather than Christ, we are not living ‘by the Spirit of God’. He moves us to say, with our whole heart, ‘Jesus is Lord’(1 Corinthians 12;3). We live in fellowship with one another: ‘the body does not consist of one member but of many’(1 Corinthians 12:14). ‘I’m happy – as long as I’m getting my own way’: We can do without this kind of attitude! What about ‘the common good’? Sometimes, things don’t go according to my plan. Perhaps, my plan needs revising – to take account of ‘the common good’. When self raises its ugly head – ‘It’s my way or no way at all’- let’s not forget the ‘still more excellent way’(1 Corinthians 12:3). It is the way of love – Christ’s love!
Let us follow Jesus in the pathway of victory.
Jesus was ‘tempted by the devil’(Luke 4:2). He was rejected by His enemies (Luke 4:28-29). When we look around us, we see nothing but temptations and rejection – What a negative way of looking at things! There is something more positive here – the presence of the Holy Spirit (Luke 4:1,14,18). Do not be afraid. There is no need to be discouraged. We need not be defeated. The temptations may be many. The opposition may be fierce. We can ‘pass through the midst of them’(Luke 4:30): ‘God did not give us a spirit of timidity but a spirit of power and love and self-control’(2 Timothy 1:7). Satan is persistent – They did not rest until they had crucified Him. Faced with such opposition, we – like Jesus – must walk in the Spirit (Ephesians 6:12,17-18).

Fourth Sunday after the Epiphany: Jeremiah 1:4-10; Psalm 71:1-6; 1 Corinthians 13:1-13; Luke 4:21-30
Catching a glimpse of the eternal God.
To understand Jeremiah’s story, we must look ‘behind the scenes’: ‘The Word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations”’(Jeremiah 1:4-5). To understand our own story, we must go even further back – ‘The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ… chose us in Christ before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight’. We must never forget the words of Jesus: ‘You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit – fruit that will last’(Ephesians 1:3-4; John 15:16). We’re not to be ‘on the surface’ people. We’re to be people who have seen ‘behind the scenes’, people who have caught a glimpse of the eternal God and His eternal purpose for our lives.
Looking to the Lord who leads us in the way of victory.
David is in great danger. His life is being threatened by his enemies (Psalm 70:2). We might expect that he would be depressed. Far from it! Rather than being preoccupied with his own problems, he is calling on God’s people to worship the Lord with joy: ‘May all who seek You, rejoice and be glad in You! May those who love Your salvation continually say, “God is great!”’(Psalm 70:4). How was David able to rise above his own problems and call the Lord’s people to worship? – He knew that the Lord was his ‘Rock of refuge’, his ‘strong Fortress’(Psalm 71:3). Like David, we may face ‘many terrible troubles’. Let us learn, like David, to praise the Lord and look to Him to lead us in the way of victory: ‘You have done great things, O God… You will revive me again’(Psalm 71:19-20).
A revival of love
Paul’s teaching seems so unrealistic. Life isn’t like this, people aren’t like this, the Church isn’t like this – and we’re all the poorer for it! We speak about revival. We hope for it. We pray for it. What we need most of all is a revival of love. This is not a return to ‘the good old days’. This is for here and now. We can make a great deal of a ‘revival’ which took place a good many years ago. It is in today’s world that we are called to show love. Differences of opinion become deeply-held prejudices. It’s all going on in the Name of Christ! Our reverence for yesterday’s religious leaders will mean nothing – if there is no love. Some things should have been ‘dead and buried’a long time ago. Keep the negative thinking going and we’ll be speaking to ourselves. Nobody will be listening (1 corinthians 14:4, 8)!
In our weakness, the Holy Spirit comes to us with His strength.
Jesus was ‘tempted by the devil’(Luke 4:2). He was rejected by His enemies (Luke 4:28-29). When we look around us, we see nothing but temptations and rejection – What a negative way of looking at things! There is something more positive here – the presence of the Holy Spirit (Luke 4:1,14,18). Do not be afraid. There is no need to be discouraged. We need not be defeated. The temptations may be many. The opposition may be fierce. We can ‘pass through the midst of them’(Luke 4:30): ‘God did not give us a spirit of timidity but a spirit of power and love and self-control’(2 Timothy 1:7). Satan is persistent – They did not rest until they had crucified Him. Faced with such opposition, we – like Jesus – must walk in the Spirit (Ephesians 6:12,17-18).
——————–
Fifth Sunday after the Epiphany: Isaiah 6:1-8, (9-13); Psalm 138; 1 Corinthians 15:1-11; Luke 5:1-11
In God’s holiness, we see our sin. Through His love, we receive His forgiveness.
God reveals His holiness: ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts’(Isaiah 6:3). In His holiness, we see our own sinfulness: ‘I am a man of unclean lips’(Isaiah 6:5). God is perfectly holy: ‘Your eyes are too pure to look on evil’(Habakkuk 1:13). When we look at ourselves in the light of God’s perfect holiness, we see the truth concerning ourselves: ‘All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God’(Romans 3:23). There is no room for excuses. We must confess our sin. We must pray for God’s forgiveness: ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner’(Luke 18:13). To those who come to Him with a true confession of sin, God speaks His Word of forgiveness: ‘your guilt is taken away, and your sin forgiven’(Isaiah 6:7). The Lord has saved us. Let us serve Him. Let us pray, ‘Here am I! Send me’(Isaiah 6:8). Let us share the Good News of His forgiveness.
When your faith seems so weak, Jesus won’t let you down – He’ll lift you up.
‘How can we sing the songs of the Lord while in a foreign land?’(Psalm 137:4). It is not easy to keep on worshipping the Lord when so many show no interest in worshipping Him. What are we to do when our faith seems so weak and we are on the verge of giving up? ‘Ask the Saviour to help you, comfort, strengthen and keep you’. What will we find when we come to the Lord, looking to Him for strength? ‘He is willing to aid you. He will carry you through’. God gives us strength – ‘You answered me when I called to You. With Your strength, You strengthened me’(Psalm 138:3). ‘To him that o’ercometh, God giveth a crown. Through faith we shall conquer, though often cast down. He who is our Saviour, our strength will renew. Look ever to Jesus. He will carry you through’(Church Hymnary, 482).
When your faith seems so weak, remember this – Jesus is risen from the dead.
Here, we learn of Christ’s resurrection: the fact - ‘Christ has been raised from the dead’- and the meaning – ‘the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep’(1 Corinthians 15:20). We look back to His resurrection. We ‘remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead’(2 Timothy 2:8). We look forward to our own resurrection. We will be ‘raised ‘ -  ‘imperishable… in glory… in power… a spiritual body’(1 Corinthians 15:42-44). Looking back to His resurrection and looking forward to our own resurrection, we are to live, here and now, in ‘the power of His resurrection’(Philippians 3:10). We believe the fact of the resurrection. We live in the power of the resurrection. We rejoice in the hope of the resurrection. With ‘resurrection’ faith in the ‘resurrection’ God, let us live the ‘resurrection’ life as a ‘resurrection’ people!
When your faith seems so weak, pray that God’s Word will speak to you with power.
‘His Word was with power’(Luke 4:32). Where there are hindrances, obstructing the flow of God’s Word, we must pray that God’s Word will be heard for ‘what it really is’- ‘not the word of men but the Word of God’(1 Thessalonians 2:13). Our hearing of God’s Word is not to be a superficial thing – Here, the people of Capernaum ‘tried to keep Him from leaving them’(Luke 4:42). Later, Jesus said, ‘You, Capernaum… shall be thrust down to hell’(Luke 10:15). We must hear the Word of God and act on it (Luke 5:1,3). We may feel, ‘it’s a waste of time’. We must be obedient to God: ‘at Your Word I will let down the nets’(Luke 5:5). We are to be ‘partners’ in the Lord’s work (Luke 5:7): ‘workers together with God’(2 Corinthians 6:1). All the glory belongs to the Lord: We are ‘sinful’- Through His grace, we can win others for Him (Luke 5:8,10).

Sixth Sunday after the Epiphany: Jeremiah 17:5-10; Psalm 1; 1 |Corinthians 15:12-20; Luke 6:17-26
God’s Word, God’s Salvation, God’s Blessing
‘The Lord’ is ‘the Fountain of living water’(Jeremiah 17:13). He says to us, ‘With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation’(Isaiah 12:3). We can be ‘like a tree planted by water’, a tree that ‘does not ce

          US warns citizens to ‘reconsider travelling to Nigeria’      Comment   Translate Page      

The US department of state has cautioned its citizens to “reconsider travel to Nigeria because violent crime, such as armed robbery, assault, carjacking, terrorism, civil unrest, kidnapping, rape and piracy, is common throughout the country.”

In a travel advisory recently released on its website, which contains information on the safety and security of US travellers, Nigeria was listed among 35 countries with a “K” indicator that indicates where its citizens could be at risk of getting kidnapped or taken hostage.

“The new “K” indicator is part of our ongoing commitment to provide clear and comprehensive travel safety information to U.S. citizens so they can make informed travel decisions,” the department said.



“The Travel Advisories for 35 countries have been updated to include a “K” indicator for the risk of kidnapping and/or hostage taking: Afghanistan, Algeria, Angola, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Colombia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Haiti, Iran, Iraq, Kenya, Lebanon, Libya, Malaysia, Mali, Mexico, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Russian Federation, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, Uganda, Ukraine (in Russian-controlled eastern Ukraine), Venezuela, and Yemen.”

While Nigeria was placed on level 3, the US department of state issued a level 4 travel alert for Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states.

“The security situation in northeast Nigeria is fluid and unpredictable, particularly in Borno and Yobe States and northern Adamawa State,” the department said.

“Terrorist groups based in the Northeast target churches, schools, mosques, government installations, educational institutions, and entertainment venues. Approximately two million of Nigerians have been displaced as a result of the violence in northeast Nigeria.”

The 35 countries were placed in four levels of travel with respect to their safety and security risk.

          From Mount Sinai to the Red Sea Crossing, This Man Searches for the Bible's 'Lost' Sites      Comment   Translate Page      

When Bob Cornuke first got involved in searching for lost locations in the Bible, he met a man named Jim Erwin who was the eighth man to walk on the moon.

"He was the first one to drive a car on the Moon," Cornuke told Peter Wooding, European Bureau Chief for ASSIST News at the recent NRB Convention in Anaheim, CA.

"He said, 'Bob, how'd you like to do something really fun? Let's look for Noah's Ark! It'd be the greatest discovery of all time!'"

Cornuke thought, "OK, how can you pass up on that?"

Cornuke had been involved with a career in law enforcement, got involved in a very bad shooting, moved to Colorado—and that's when he met Jim Erwin.

"So that started this cascading life of adventure and fun and risk and peril and books and video, TV and all that kind of fun things—and it was all because of meeting a man who walked on the moon that started it for me."

What have been some of the standout moments?

"It's hard to say that we've 'discovered' anything because God will reveal things in His time, for His purpose and His glory. But the standout things that we think we have been allowed to be a part of that God's revealed to us is the Mount Sinai story.

"Where is the real Mount Sinai? Tradition puts it, of course, and everybody believes that it's in the Sinai Peninsula. But the Bible says in Galatians 4:25 that Mount Sinai is in Arabia. That's a red flag for me, and as a former FBI trained homicide investigator, I had to check that out, because the Bible is shooting a flaming arrow right into Arabia as to where the real Mount Sinai is.

"So I went there, I met with a man named Larry Williams—we found this peak that's black on top and all these things around it. There [were] pillars and altars and writings and a lot of people were saying, 'Yes, that is the real Mount Sinai' now as late as Josephus Demetrius and Philo, historians from as far back as 250 B.C. have said that's the place, in the ancient land of Midian. So we think the real Mount Sinai has been discovered in the ancient land of Midian. And believe it or not, they're doing a Hollywood movie on it now, and of course, I'm not going to be in the movie, but it's a big Hollywood production that we're actually in the process of production as we speak."

Cornuke said the movie will be called The Mountain of Fire.

"It's really fun because we're talking big Hollywood types—I can't reveal a lot of the names that we're involved with now because they're contract negotiations—but Dean River is going to be producing it. One of the co-producers is Charles Seeger, who did National Treasure 1 and National Treasure 2. And I'm going over in a few weeks, doing some site locations in Jordan, where they filmed Lawrence of Arabia, and I'll be with the film commission over there, doing site locations for the movie. I've never had a movie done about me, so it's all new, but it's very fun and exciting."

Cornuke has 11 books and the most recent just came out, called Explorer—My Life Searching for Lost Locations in the Bible, that chronicles all his searches.

"I've been involved with 72 expeditions, been arrested five times in the Middle East for carrying a Bible, believed to be a spy—so they arrest you because you've a Bible in the Middle East. I don't want to ruin the book, but I do live. I survive!

The book is about Cornuke's nine searches and expeditions looking for Noah's Ark.

"I've looked for the real Mount Sinai that we just talked about. I've looked for the crossing site of the Red Sea where the fleeing Hebrews went being chased by Pharaoh went through the Red Sea. I've searched for the Ark of the Covenant in Ethiopia on 22 trips looking for it. I've actually been on the search looking for Paul's shipwreck—we think we've found the four anchors or God's revealed the four anchors of where Paul's shipwreck would be, and that's off the coast of Malta. We have four lead first-century Alexandrian freighter anchors that have been located over there by divers. And then we more recently have been involved searching where the real Solomon's temple and Herod's temple are located. We're looking for where Christ was crucified, and that's where Golgotha is, of course. I don't think people are going to be too believing of where we say, because tradition is such a strong thing, so you have to get past that big rock in the road that's called 'tradition' to find these locations. You take what the Bible says, and you bump into these roadblocks of tradition. So we try to go around these traditions and follow God's words as a roadmap and as a compass and as a guide."

How much have these travels helped Cornuke's faith to actually see the Bible come to life?

"I don't care who we are you know the Bible is a very difficult thing to believe you see—well, there's the Red Sea parting, and you see the world being flooded, and you see animals aboard the ark, and you start saying 'Well, that's a little farfetched,' and then you say 'Wait a second; God put that in the Bible.'

"The Bible is God's revelation of Himself to man. God's the author. Salvation's the end, and truth without any mixture of error is the content. The Bible is and shall be the supreme standard by which we should live. We should stop saying, 'Wait a second; we're second-guessing God,' because that's impossible. If the first line in the Bible is 'In the beginning God created ...' anything is possible. God can create. He can allow, he can provide things such as the flood to teach a disbelieving world about Himself and His nature and what He's intended. For instance, Noah's ark—if you're on that ark, you're saved. If you're off that ark, you perish. So there's no 'spiritual Switzerland' when you're on the ark of Christ today—you're saved. If you're off the ark of Christ today, you perish. The ark was a forerunner of Jesus and a perfect illustration of salvation."

Cornuke continued: "But the world wants to make everything complex, and they want to say, 'I want to have all these answers.' We don't have all the answers. God says 'I don't want you to have all the answers. I want you to have a childlike faith.' Matthew 11:25 says: 'Oh Father, Lord of heaven and earth, thank You for hiding the truth from those who think themselves so wise and clever and for revealing it to the childlike.' Not the childish, the childlike. We have too many intellectuals today. People these days just puffed up with all this intellect that they can't see the truth past the scales in their eyes and the plugs that are in their ears. The Bible says, 'Thank you for hiding the truth from those that think themselves so wise and clever.'

"The whole university system is designed to gut God out of the divine and say these things didn't happen. The Red Sea parted from a strong wind. No, God parted the Red Sea with His mighty hand! The Bible says, 'I will show you these things that you should know that I'm the Lord your God.' He didn't do it because he was a cosmic show-off. He showed the people because He wanted them to know there was no other way of salvation except through Me. That's what God's done with his Son Jesus Christ who died on the cross for our sins, gruesome death; He paid the price for our sins. It just pains God's heart to see a world today that's totally disbelieving, that's caught up in following man instead of what God is saying."

What's next for Cornuke — are there more adventures, or will he ever hang up his boots?

"For some people, they stop. And so why do I look for these things? Because I try to show people the physical evidence that's in the Bible. People say, 'Well, you just need to have faith.' Well, faith is a great thing, but people say, 'Well, you just need to have faith. Why do you need to find things?' Well, how did Jesus teach when He encountered the doubting Thomas? He said, 'Look at the holes in my hands and my side.' And what did Thomas do? He fell down and said, 'My Lord and my God!'

"I try to show people the evidence, the physical evidence that these ancient historical events are real and true; and if we rely on the Bible—every word of the Bible from start to finish—we can rely on the Bible; and if we do so, we have the faith of a child ,and the world will change, and you can move mountains with that kind of faith. So the world today is doubting—and who blames them, because they're getting fed nothing but this nonsense from a secular world that says they have the answers when they don't even know what the question is, let alone have the answers."

          Boeing's problems are mounting and things are going to get worse before they get better (BA)      Comment   Translate Page      

Boeing 737 Max train

  • Boeing has been through a tough month as it faces a bevy of lawsuits and investigations.
  • However, it may have even more serious and fundamental issues to confront such as fixing the design flaw in 737 Max, regaining the trust of passengers and crew, and maybe even coming up with a replacement for the 737 Max.
  • The global fleet of 371 Boeing 737 Max airliners have been grounded since the crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET302. 
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

It's been a tough 30 days for Boeing. In the month since the tragic crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET302, the American aviation giant has seen its hot-selling 737 Max airliner grounded, its stock plunged 10%, and its reputation tarnished by the scandal.

Boeing admitted last week that a faulty sensor triggered the 737 Max's Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System or MCAS on both the Lion Air Flight JT610 and the Ethiopian Airlines plane. The system's activation precipitated nose dives that likely led to both crashes. 

"The 737 Max grounding and what we are learning from it shows that this is not the typical airplane accident we've seen in the past and this is not the typical airplane grounding we've seen recently," Henry Harteveldt, travel industry analyst and founder of Atmosphere Research Group, told Business Insider. "This is a very serious problem for Boeing and a big problem for the airline operators and a problem I don't think will be easy to fix."

Read more: Boeing's reputation has been stained by the 737 Max, and it's going to have to fight to convince people the plane is safe.

This week, Boeing investors filed a proposed class-action lawsuit in Chicago alleging the company defrauded its shareholders by failing to reveal potential safety shortcomings of the 737 Max airliner after two fatal crashes in five months. 

Lawyers representing the 346 victims of Lion Air Flight JT610 and the Ethiopian crash have filed multiple suits against Boeing. 

Boeing 737 MAXAt the same time, the airlines whose 371 grounded 737 Max are sitting in storage collecting dust have initiated compensation proceedings to collect damages from Boeing. 

Boeing's troubles are mounting and things are going to get worse before it gets better. 

Design trouble

The US Department of Transportation has commenced an audit on how the Federal Aviation Administration managed to certify the 737 Max to fly with substantial control issues. 

Boeing and the FAA's cozy relationship has come under scrutiny from members of Congress. 

Certification issues aside, Boeing will have to answer for the design flaw that is at the heart of the controversy surrounding the 737 Max in the coming weeks and months.

To fit the Max's larger, more fuel-efficient engines, Boeing had to position the engine farther forward and up. This change disrupted the plane's center of gravity and caused the Max to have a tendency to tip its nose upward during flight, increasing the likelihood of a stall. In response, Boeing created MCAS as a software fix to automatically counteract that tendency and point the nose of the plane down when the plane's angle-of-attack (AOA) sensor triggers a warning.

"MCAS was a band-aid that infected the wound instead of healing it," Ross Aimer, an aviation consultant and former Boeing 787 training captain, said in an interview with Business Insider. 

Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 ET AVJOne of the most confounding issues with MCAS is that it can be triggered by a single AOA sensor even though there are two on the plane. This is a departure from Boeing standard operating procedure which normally calls for a dual point of failure. 

"Since you have two (AOA sensors) in order to get certified, why not use them, I just don't understand it," aviation consultant and former aeronautical engineer Robert Mann told Business Insider in an interview. 

"From a design perspective, it doesn't make any sense."

Pilots and passengers don't trust the 737 Max

One of the 737 Max's greatest selling points was the idea that it could be easily integrated into existing 737 fleets with minimal additional training. Since the 737 has long been one of the most dependable airplanes in the world, this congruency helped make the 737 Max a hot seller.

However, the 737 Max is a very different plane from the 737NG it replaced. It has new engines mounted in a different location, redesigned wings, and new avionics. These are all things the pilots knew about. 

What they didn't know was that MCAS had been installed on the 737 Max. Pilots found out about MCAS being on the plane after the Lion Air 737 Max crash into the Java Sea on October 28. 

Boeing 737 Max 8 cockpit"Boeing in the past always told the pilots and airlines exactly what was on those airplanes," Aimer said. "I have been a Boeing pilot for over 50 years and have loved their products, but they have lost my trust."

Aimer, who is the CEO of Aviation Consulting Experts and a retired United Airlines Captain, feels like Boeing put money ahead of the well-being of passengers and crew.

"Boeing kept that from us purely because they didn't want to bother the airlines with some extra training," he told us. "This was purely a monetary decision on behalf of Boeing and the airlines themselves to keep this away from the pilots and the result was disastrous." 

And then there's the traveling public.

poll conducted by Business Insider a week after the Ethiopian crash showed that 53% of American adults would not want to fly on a Boeing 737 Max even after the FAA clears the aircraft for service.

"The 737 Max has stained Boeing's brand reputation," Harteveldt said. "This can't be denied."

Business Insider reached out to Boeing for comment on the matter. A Boeing spokesperson noted that company CEO Dennis Muilenberg made a speech on Thursday touting the need to regain public trust.

"We know every person who steps aboard one of our airplanes places their trust in us," Muilenburg said in the speech. "We’ll do everything possible to earn and re-earn that trust and confidence from our airline customers and the flying public in the weeks and months ahead."

"We take the responsibility to build and deliver airplanes that are safe to fly and can be safely flown by every single one of the professional and dedicated pilots all around the world," the Boeing CEO added.

Boeing might need a replacement for the 737 Max

The Boeing 737 Max is the fastest-selling plane in Boeing history. It's the latest generation of Boeing's money-making 737 family of airliners.

The various versions of the Boeing 737 currently account for 80% of Boeing's 5,800-plane order backlog.

It's going to be an uphill battle for Boeing to restore confidence in the grounded jet. 

"You can't hide the 737, you've got thousands of them of all types flying worldwide today for airlines," Harteveldt said.

As a result, you can't simply rebrand the plane. 

Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 storage"People are going to see right through that," he added.

Therefore, Boeing is going to either have to convince people to fly the 737 Max or come up with a replacement.

"Yes, (737 Max) is the last iteration," Teal Group aviation analyst Richard Aboulafia told Business Insider in March. "They ran out of steam in terms of range and capacity."

That means whichever aircraft Boeing chooses to replace the 737 will be a clean sheet design. 

It's not all gloom and doom for Boeing

The situation Boeing finds itself in is not insurmountable.

Aimer said Boeing's engineering team should be able to come up with an effective fix for the 737 Max. 

"They can fix this issue, right now they need to be honest and forthright and try to fix this issue to the best of their ability," Aimer said. 

Boeing 737 MAX 8 airlinerHarteveldt said Boeing can convince passengers to feel safe in the 737 Max.

"Boeing has to become a bit more of a consumer-facing organization to reinstill confidence in its brand so that the saying 'if it's not Boeing I'm not going' can be said again with pride by travelers," the analyst said. 

On the other hand, Mann believes Boeing won't have to do much to get people to return to the 737 Max. 

"Once the airplane routinely does what it's designed to do and safely, all of this goes away. And it's crass to say it, but the fact is the traveling public has a very short memory," Mann said.

Pekerjaan yang Dianggap Sulit dan Mengerikan

1. Produksi penutup lubang got

Pria-pria dari India memproduksi sekitar 2.750 tutup lubang got untuk kota New York per tahunnya. Satu-satunya peralatan keselamatan yang dimiliki beberapa dari mereka hanyalah kacamata keselamatan. Padahal saat memproduksinya, mereka dekat dengan logam yang panasnya mencapai 1.198 hingga 1.398 derajat celcius.

Dengan suhu sepanas tersebut, percikan logam panas-panas tentu dapat menyebabkan luka bakar yang parah sewaktu-waktu. Tak heran pekerjaan ini dianggap salah satu yang paling sulit dan tak banyak diminati.

 

2. Penambangan belerang di Gunung Api Kawah Ijen

Kawah Ijen terletak di Jawa dan tingginya 8.530 kaki. Di dalam area gunung berapi, ada sebuah danau belerang, di mana ada beberapa orang yang bekerja di sana. Para pekerja adalah penduduk lokal yang bekerja tanpa pakaian pelindung atau masker gas.

Padahal mereka mengambil belerang sepanjang hari dan sepanjang malam, menggunakan 2 tangan mereka sendiri. dan hanya menggunakan saputangan yang membantu mereka untuk tidak menghirup zat berbahaya. Setiap pekerja mendapat kurang dari lebih Rp 73.000 per hari.

Tak Banyak Orang Mau Melakukannya

Berbicara soal berlian, pasti yang terbanyang di otak kita adalah kaya raya. Namun hal tersebut tidak berlaku untuk para penambangnya. Dilaporkan nilai total berlian yang diekstraksi di Sierra Leone mencapai 320 juta US Dollar atau setara Rp4,6 triiliun.

Tetapi para pekerja tidak mendapatkan banyak. Di distrik Kono di mana sekitar 250.000 orang bekerja sebagai penambang berlian, namun distrik ini adalah daerah termiskin di negara ini.

Walau kita tinggal di daerah tropis, kita kadang kala tidak bisa menahan cuaca panas. Tapi orang-orang Afar, suku asal Ethiopia, sangat tahan dengan cuaca panas karena sebagian besar dari mereka adalah penambangan garam. Padahal suhu di sana bisa mencapai 51 derajat Celcius dan dianggap sebagai salah satu tempat terpanas di dunia.

          6 Pekerjaan Ini Dianggap Paling Mengerikan, Bukti Cari Duit Itu Susah      Comment   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Generasi milenial atau juga dikenal sebagai Generasi Y adalah generasi yang lahir setelah Generasi X. Menurut para peneliti sosial, generasi milenial ini adalah generasi kelahiran pada rentang tahun 1980an sampai 2000. Singkatnya, generasi millenial adalah anak-anak muda yang sekarang ini umurnya kisaran 15-35 tahun.

 

Generasi milenial punya impian tersendiri tentang pekerjaan. Generasi ini punya jiwa bebas, selalu cari tantangan di pekerjaan dan kehidupannya. Punya pemikiran terbuka dan bisa menelurkan berbagai ide fresh jadi ciri khas anak muda milenial. Mereka juga tak ingin terkekang dan ingin mengembangkan potensi diri secara maksimal.

Seiring perkembangan zaman yang semakin modern, tentu semakin sulit untuk mendapat pekerjaan. Generasi milenial sendiri cenderung ingin mendapatkan perkerjaan yang memiliki gaji tinggi dan tinggat stres yang rendah. Hal itu yang membuat generasi milenial terlihat pilih-pilih pekerjaan.

Pekerjaan yang Dianggap Sulit dan Mengerikan

1. Produksi penutup lubang got

Pria-pria dari India memproduksi sekitar 2.750 tutup lubang got untuk kota New York per tahunnya. Satu-satunya peralatan keselamatan yang dimiliki beberapa dari mereka hanyalah kacamata keselamatan. Padahal saat memproduksinya, mereka dekat dengan logam yang panasnya mencapai 1.198 hingga 1.398 derajat celcius.

Dengan suhu sepanas tersebut, percikan logam panas-panas tentu dapat menyebabkan luka bakar yang parah sewaktu-waktu. Tak heran pekerjaan ini dianggap salah satu yang paling sulit dan tak banyak diminati.

 

2. Penambangan belerang di Gunung Api Kawah Ijen

Pekerjaan Sulit (sumber: brightside)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F2019_04_14%2F476253

Kawah Ijen terletak di Jawa dan tingginya 8.530 kaki. Di dalam area gunung berapi, ada sebuah danau belerang, di mana ada beberapa orang yang bekerja di sana. Para pekerja adalah penduduk lokal yang bekerja tanpa pakaian pelindung atau masker gas.

Padahal mereka mengambil belerang sepanjang hari dan sepanjang malam, menggunakan 2 tangan mereka sendiri. dan hanya menggunakan saputangan yang membantu mereka untuk tidak menghirup zat berbahaya. Setiap pekerja mendapat kurang dari lebih Rp 73.000 per hari.

Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder and national coordinator of Tea Party Patriots, told Breitbart News that the rallies were inspired by President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address, where he pledged, “America will never be a socialist country … ever.”

“That inspired us to do this,” Martin said.

But, Martin said, the event is about more than opposing the left’s agenda.

“The people taking part in the rallies are not just standing against socialism, but are also standing up for liberty and freedom,”

So many 'Patriots' are so utterly clueless about the topic upon which they bloviate.

'Patriots' do not accept welfare from The State.  

'Patriots' do not work in professions that impose violations of Rightful Liberty upon their countrymen.

And the absurdity of the Tea Party holding 'rallies' on 'Tax Day' to protest 'Socialism' and oppressive government is beyond my ability to properly articulate.  The stunning failure to understand the reality in front of them is mind-boggling.

Socialism is not the problem.  Communism is not the problem.  Anarchy is not the problem.  Fascism is not the problem.  Racism is not the problem.

The problem is now and has always been with the -ist, not the -ism.

Social-ists are the problem.  Commun-ists are the problem.  Anarch-ists are the problem.

Don't fight the -ism - that is folly.

Extirpate the -ists - reduce the gene pool of the garbage.

No man or woman has ever died from an -ism.

Death is always at the hands of the -ists...

          Ivanka Trump In Africa For Women's Economic Summit      Comment   Translate Page      
Ivanka Trump arrived in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, Sunday for a summit on African women's economic inclusion and empowerment. In addition to attending the summit, the daughter of the U.S. president, who is also an advisor to her father, will meet with female workers in the coffee industry, and tour a female-run textile facility. President Donald Trump signed a National Security Presidential Memorandum in February, establishing the Women's Global Development and Prosperity (W-GDP) Initiative. W-GDP says it hopes to "reach 50 million women by 2025, through the work of the the United States Government and its partners." It was not immediately clear if the controversy that surrounds the U.S. president will follow his daughter to Africa. The president has not been kind in his remarks about Africa and its migrants. "I don't think people will have a good feeling" said Ethiopian journalist Sisay Woubshet, about the president's daughter visit to the Continent. Marakle Tesfaye, an activist, said, however, "I think she's coming genuinely to empower women and it's good that she's coming because she will push forward our agenda." Trump is also scheduled to an make an appearance at a World Bank policy summit.

Selam Amanuel, I think you are right. Ethiopia is very difficult nation to administer, given the diversity and other historical contradictions. EPRDF model of administration seem to be vindicated when you look back how bloody the past one year was. Abiy even intended to abandon the current system in to Presidential, the reason being the hype he have got from the majority of the people. That made him to overestimate his ability. The interests are diverse and the best way to keep Ethiopia united would be for him to admit his mess and go back to square one and minimize his role and maximize the collective input of the parties within EPRDF umbrella. In fact, to make such assessment, it takes a wise and intelligent person. As far as I am concerned he is not fit for the purpose, he shouldn't be near to top positions where the stakes are extremely high.

Selam Abi Seb, ሓንሳብ'ዶ ኣብ ሞንጎ ክልቴኹም ወጠምጠም ክብል ወይካኣ ጣልቃ ክኣቱ ምፈቐድካለይ? I think what has the recent announcement come through is a long time coming. Let's see a brief run-down of the recent development with respect to time. If you remember, ten years or so ago one of the contentious issue with in the diaspora debate was whether the best way forward in dealing with the regime in Asmara is through peaceful means or using violence. Then when the debate leaned towards the peaceful means, it morphed into whether we should reform PFDJ and make it a vital player in post-Isaias Eritrea. What happened since then was not only an utter mockery of the Opposition by PFDJ but also no sign of reform in light of the major changes in Ethiopia with respect to Eritrea to the extent of compromising Eritrean sovereignty. The latter could be only limited to suspicion but to the very least if Isaias had any decent regard for the Eritrean people, he should have come out and address the anxiety of the people clearly and openly. Wouldn't you agree that, what has been announced in Eritrea could be reasonable in light of the above stated rationale?

To say Nigeria-the supposed giant of Africa-is without a national airline, befuddles right thinking Nigerians.

It began operation on October 1, 1958; and in 1971, it was rebranded to the name it had until it ceased operations […]

የኢትዮ ሰማይ ድረገጽ ወቅታዊ ትንታኔዎችን ለጊዜው አቁሞ እንደነበር ይታወቃል። በቅርቡ በአዲስ መንፈስ ወቅታዊ ትንታኔዎችን በተከታታይ በስፋት ማቅረብ የሚጀምር መሆኑን ለማሳወቅ እንወዳለን። አሁን ወደ የዛሬው ትንታኔ ክፍል 1 እንለፍ።

የኤርትራ ትግል ጀማሪ ስለ ተባለለት ሓምድ እድሪስ ዓዋተ ያልሰማችሁት የህይወት ታሪኩን ላካፍላችሁ
ጌታቸው ረዳ (ኢትዮ ሰማይ) ክፍል 1

ሓምድ እድሪስ ዓዋተ (1915-1962) የሚል በኤርትራዊው ‘ሃይለስላሴ ወልዱ’ የተደረሰ በትግርኛ የተጻፈ ባለ 475 ገጽ  የኤርትራ ትግል ጀማሪ ብለው ብዙዎቹ ኤርትራኖች የሚያሞግሱት (ኩናማዎች ግን ተራ ሽፍታ እና ጸረ ኩናማ ብለው የሚዘክሩት) ጸረ ኢትዮጵያ የነበረው የጣሊያኖች ባንዳ የነበረው በአያቱ ስም የሚጠራው “ዓዋተ” የተባለው የቢንዓሚር (?) ነገድ ተወላጅ ስለ ህይወት ታሪኩ የሚተነትን “በትግርኛ የተጻፈ መጽሐፍ እያነበብኩኝ ነው። በዚህ መጽሐፍ ውስጥ ሰምተናቸው የማናውቃቸው ታሪኮች ተዘግበዋል። መጽሐፉ ገና በቅርብ ሰሞኑን ነው ያገኘሁት። ማነበብ ጀምሬዋለሁ። መጽሐፉን ጨርሼ እስካነብበው ድረስ ለጊዜው ለዛሬ ክፍል አንድ ያነበብኩዋቸው አጫጭር ታሪኮቹን ላስተዋቀውቃችሁ።

ኤርትራውያን እንደምታውቁት በአጉል ትምክሕት፤በዘረኝነት እና በውሸት ፖለቲካ እየተነዱ አሁን ወደ ደረሱበት አሳዛኝ ህይወት ደርሰዋል። ከ30 አመት በላይ ከኢትዮጵያ ለመገንጠል ታገልን ያሉት ትግል፤ ነፃ ወጣን ባሉበት 27 አመት ያገኙት ውጤት ስንመዝነው “ስደት፤ ሞት፤ ስቃይ፤ ውርደት፤ ዘመድ ከዘመድ መለያየት፤ ርሃብ፤ ጭንቀት እና ጉስቁልና ግርፋት እና እስራት እንዲሁም የስነ ልቦና እና የአካል ውርደት ደርሶባቸዋል።

ይህ ያላሰቡት ውርደት “ናፃነት አገኘን” ያሉትን አሳዛኝ ክስተት ወደ ፊታቸው መመለክትን ሳይሆን “ሃይለስላሴ እና መንግስቱ ሃይለማርያም” በተሻለን ነበር በማለት ወደ ሊት ለማየት የተገደዱበት አጣብቂኝ ምርጫ ውስጥ ገብተዋል። ይህ ሃቅ በዱለት እየኖሩ በውጭ አገር ተጠልለው ከእውነታው አጥር ውጭ ሆነው የሚፎልሉትን በብዙዎቹ ልሂቃኖቻቸው የሚያስተጋቡት “ነጻ ነን” የሚሉትን በየአመቱ የሚያከብሩት ቅዠት የሚታመን የሳይሆን ፤ እዛው ኤርትራ ምድር ውስጥ የሲኦል ህይወት የሚኖሩ ዜጎች የሚናገሩት እውነታ ነው።

ኤርትራኖች ዛሬም ከጊዜው ጋር እራሳቸውን ማሳደስ የማይችሉ (update/ኣፕዴት/ ማድረግ የማይችሉ) በበረሃው የትግል ቅዠት ውስጥ ሲያደምጡት የነበረው “የጥይት እና የጥላቻ ጩኸት” መርቅነው በጦዘ ሕሊናቸው ዛሬም እዛው በምናባቸው የሚቃዡ ስለሆነ የሕዝባቸው መከራ ከማባባስ የተሻለ አዲስ ነገር ማፍለቅ አልቻሉም።

ልክ የኛዎቹ የወያነ ትግራይ ‘መሳፍንታዊ ፋሺስት መሪዎች’  እና አሸባሪዎቹ የአሮሞ ነፃ አውጪ ድርጅቶች እንደሚቃዡት የቅዠት ርዕየተ ዓለም ውስጥ “ኤርትራኖችም” ልክ እንደ እነዚህኞቹ ራሳቸውን “ማሳደስ” ያልቻሉ “ቆመው የቀሩ” ስለሆኑ ሰላማዊ ዜጎቻቸው በአስከፊ የህይወት ውቅያኖስ ውስጥ እንዲዋኙ እና መፈጠራቸውን እስኪጠሉ ድረስ አድረገዋቸዋል። ዛሬም ከሚያዩት ችግር ምንም ሳይማሩ ያንኑ ቅዠታቸውን ቀጥለውበታል።

ስለሆነም ነው ተራ ሽፍቶችን የነፃነት ምልክቶች እያሉ በመኳኳል ይኼው ዛሬም የባንዳው ሓምድ እድሪስ ዓዋተ (‘ዓዋተ’) የህይወት ታሪክ እንደ አፍሪአዊ አርበኛ አድርገው የኮለኒያሊስቶች የበርሜል መርዝ ተሸካሚዎች እና አገልጋዮችን እንደ አርበኞች እድርገው  እየጻፉ ይገኛሉ።
የሚገርመው እኔ እስከፈተሽኩት ድረስ (ለወደፊቱ አነብበው እንደሆን እርግጠኛ አይደለሁም) መጽሐፉ ግን ዓዋተ ያሰቃያቸው ኩናማ ማሕበረሰብ አስተያየትን ያካተተ አልመሰለኝም። መጽሐፉ የተጠናከረው ካንድ ወገን በኩል የተገኘ ቃለ መጠይቅ እና ዘገባ ይመስላል። ያም ሆነ ይህ ለወደፊቱ እምለስበታለሁ።

ወጣም ወረደ፤ ዓዋተ ኤርትራኖችን ምን ሰራቸው የሚለው ሳይሆን የዛሬ ትኩረቴ ዓዋተ ለውጭ አገር ኮሎኒያሊስቶች በመወገን ኢትዮጵያ ላይ ምን የቅጥረኛነት (የባንዳነት) አገልግሎት ፈጸመ የሚለውን ባጭሩ እንመልከት።

የዚህ ሰው ስራ በመጽሐፉ የተካተቱ ለወደፊቱ የምንመለከታቸው ዘገባዎች እና ከሌሎች ምንጮችም ያነበብኳቸው አጠቃላይ ግምገማ አስካቀርብ ድረስ ለዛሬው እነሆ፦

ሓምድ እድሪስ ዓዋተ (1915-1962) የሚል በኤርትራዊው ‘ሃይለስላሴ ወልዱ’ የተደረሰ በትግርኛ የተጻፈ ባለ 475 ገጽ የኤርትራ ትግል ጀማሪ ብለው ብዙዎቹ ኤርትራኖች የሚያሞግሱት (ኩናማዎች ግን ተራ ሽፍታ እና ኩናማዎችን የጨፈጨፈ ብለው የሚዘክሩት) ጸረ ኢትዮጵያ የነበረው የጣሊያኖች ባንዳ በአያቱ ስም የሚጠራው “ዓዋተ” ቀዳሚ ስሙ “ሓምድ እድሪስ” የትውልድ ሐረጉ ካንድ ወጥ የተገኘ ነገድ ሳይሆን አያቶቹ ከሓባብ/ናራ/ቢንዓሚር እንዲሁም ከመሳሰሉ የትግረ ቅልቅል ነገድ ተወላጆች የተገኘ እንደሆነ መጽሐፉ በግልጽ ባያስቀምጠውም ከላይ እንደገለጽኩት ነገዱ ቅልቅል ይመስላል። ከራሱ ጀምሮ እስከ አያቶቹ ድረስ ‘የደም ጸብ’ የነበራቸው  ሞገደኞች እንደነበሩ መጽሐፉ ይገልጻል። ሰውየው ሞገደኛ ስለሆነ ልጆች ስያለቅሱ “አሐምድ” መጣብህ እያሉ ልጆችን የሚያስፈራሩበት “ሞንሰተር” እንደነበረም ደራሲው በሙገሳ መልክ ያስቀምጠዋል። ልጆች እንዲህ የሚያባንን “ሞሰንሰተር” (በላኤ ነብስ/ጸላኤ ሰናያት/) ከነበረ ማሕበረሰቡ ምን ያሕል ሽበር ይሰማው እንደነበር ግልጽ ነው።

የዓዋተ ወላጅ አባት ‘እድሪስ ዓዋተ’ ጋሽ ባርካን ተከዜን አልፎ ወደ ወልቃይት ኢትዮጵያ በመሻገር ወልቃይት ውስጥ ኑሮ በመመስረት ‘ትዕበ’ የተባለች ተድሮ ወልዶ ከብዶ  እዛው ይኖር ነበር። ከዚያም ወደ ትውልድ ስፍራው እንዳልተመለሰ የነገራል። እዚህ ላይ የምንገነዘበው ከእድሪስ የተወለዱ  የዓዋተ ኢትዮጵያዊ ትውልድ ያላቸው ወንድሞችና እህቶች አገር የሆነቺውን ኢትዮጵያን ጣሊያኖችን መርቶ ወራራ እንዲፈጸም ያደረገ የመጀመሪያው ኤርትራዊ የጣሊያን ቅጥረኛ ወታደር መኖሩን በመጽሐፉ ያነበብኩትን ለንባብ አንዲያመች ከትግርኛ ወደ አማርኛ የተረዳሁትን አቀራርብ ላስነብባችሁ

በጣሊያን ጊዜ ወላጅ አባቱ እድሪስ ወደ ዳባት (ቤገምድር/ጎንደር) በመሄድ ደጃዝማች አያሌው ብሩ ዘንድ በመሄድ ተከዜን ተሻግሮ (ከተከዜ ማዶ) ‘ትክል አምባ’ እንዲኖር ፈቃድ ጠይቆ ደጃዝማች አየለ ብሩም ፈቅደውለት እሱም ደምበር ተሻግረው ለሳር ግጦሽ ብለው የሚመሩ ከብት አርቢ ዘላን “ቢን ዓሚር ነገዶች” የከብት ዝርፊያም ሆነ ቅሚያ እንዳያካሄድ ጥበቃ እያደረገ እራሱም “እርሻ” ተፈቅዶለት ለደጃዝማቹ “ግብር” እየከፈለ ከአካባቢው ከመሳፍንቶቹ ጋር ወተት እና ውሃ ሆኖ በመዋሃድ ዝምድና በማፍራት ትዳር መስርቶ ልጆች አፈርቶ ኖረ።

በዚህ ወቅት ልጁ ሓምድ (ዓዋተ) ከወላጅ አባቱ እድሪስ ጋር አልተለየውም። ጉብዝና ሲጀምረው ወዲያ ወዲህ እየተረማመደ ለጣሊያኖችን ሲጋራ እየሸጠ፤ ከጣሊያኖች ጋር መልካም ግንኙነት መሰረተ። ቋንቋቸውም ማጥናት ጀመረ። ወዳጅነት ስለመሰረተም ጣሊያኖች በ1928 ኢትዮጵያን ስለሚወርሩ፤ጎንደር መሬት ወልቃይት ውስጥ ሲኖር የነበረው ወላጅ አባቱ እድሪስ በጦርነቱ እንዳይጎዳ ‘ከተክል ኣምባ” በቶሎ ወደ ኤርትራ ምድር  እንዲያስመጣው መከሩት። እንደተባለውም አደረገ።

እራሱም በፍላጎቱ የጣሊያን ወታደር ሆኖ በመቀጠር “ዲፖዚቶ’ በተባለ ወታደራዊ ማሰልጠኛ ለ6 ወር ትምህርት ወስዶ አስካሪ ሆኖ ተመረቀ። ከዚያም “ባንዳ-ካቮሎ (ፈረሰኛ) ሆኖ ተመደበ። ጥበቃውን በፈረስ ሆኖ ያከናውን ጀምር።

መረብ ተሻግሮ ጣሊኖችን በመምራት ኤርትራ አስካሪ ባንዳ ጦር እየመራ መረብን የተሻገረ የመጀመሪያው ኤርትራዊ የጣሊያን ቅጥራኛ ዓዋተ ሆነ።

1928 ዓ.ም (በፈረንጅ ጥቅምት ወር 1935) ጣሊያን የወረራ አዋጅ በማወጅ ኢትዮጵያን ሊወር መረብ ተሻገረ። መረብ ሲሻገር የባንዳው ዓዋተ ጦር  መረብን ተሻግሮ ዓድዋን ከረገጠ እና መጠነኛ የቶክስ ልውውጥ ካደረገ   ዋተ የሚመራት አንዲት የሻለቃ ተዋጊ ሃይል ወደ  ሽሬ አካባቢ በመዝለቅ “ዓዲ ነብርኢድ” በተባለ ወረዳ ልዩ ስሙ “ክሳድ ቋረ” በተባለ ጎጥ ጦርነት ገጠመች። ባልጠበቀው ከበባ ውስጥ ገባ።

ሳምንት ሙሉ በኢትዮጵያ ተዋጊ አርበኞች ተከብቦ ጭንቅ ውስጥ ገብቶ የሞት እና የሽረት ትግል አደረገ። ተከብቦ መውጫ በማጣቱ ወደ አስመራ ድረስ መልእክት ለጣሊያኖች ደርሶ፡ ረዳት እንዲላክለት በመደረጉ በጣሊያን ተዋጊዎች የቆመ አንድ የጣሊያን ዲቪዥንም ጦር (ቡድን) ወደ ስፍራው እንዲሄድ ተደርጎ በር ስለከፈተላቸው ከበባውን በመስበር አምልጦ ህይወቱን አትርፎኣል። ረዳት ባይደርስለት ኖሮ ዓዋተ የመጨረሻ ስንብቱ እዛው ይፈጸም ነበር።

ዓዋተ መረብ ተሻግሮ ወደ ዓድዋ ሲገባ የዚያው የዓድዋ ተወላጆች ሰላይ (ፎርማቶሪዎች) ተባባሪዎች ስለነበሩት ከነሱ መረጃ በማግኘት ነበር መረብን ለመሻገር የበቃው። የመጀመሪያ ጦር መርቶ የተሻገረ አስካሪ (ባንዳ) ዓዋተ ስለነበር Merito Di Guerra (ሙንጣዝ) (የአስር አለቃነት) ማዕረግ ተሰጠው።ከዚህ በታች የሚታየው የጣሊያኖች መዳሊያም አብሮ ተሰጠው።

ባንዳው ዓዋተ ሰራዊት የሚመራት የጣሊያን አስካሪ ተዋጊዎች ወራራቸውን በመቀጠል ‘ዓዲ ረመጽ” በተባለ አካባቢ አርማጭሆ ውስጥ ኢትዮጵያውያን አርበኞች ብቸኛዋን የአካባቢውን የውሃ ምንጭ ከብበው ተቆጣጥረዋታል። ኢትዮጵያውያንም ምንጩን በመቆጣጠር ጣሊያኖችን ለማዳከም እና በጥም ለመማረክ የቀየሱትት የጦርነት ስልት ነበር። የአንገረብ ወንዝ ውሃም አካባቢውን ከብበው አሽገው ተቆጣጥረውታል። የጣሊያን አስካሪዎች ውሃ ለመቅዳት ወደ ምንጩ ሲወርዱ በጥይት እየተቆሉ ችግር ውስጥ ገቡ። በዚህ የተነሳ በውሃ ጥም መሰቃየት ጀመሩ።ረዳት እስኪመጣለትም ሓምድ (ዓዋተ) ሌሊት እንደምን ብሎ ጭለማ ተገን አድርጎ ተሽሎክሉኮ ውሃ በቡራሾ እየቀዳ ሰራዊቶቹን ያቀብላቸው ነበር።

ዓዲ-ረመጽ የገባቺው ዓዋተ የሚመራት የባንዳዎች ተዋጊ ሰራዊት አገር ሰላም ነው ብላ ሲትገሰግስ ነው ሳታስበው ጥልቅ ብላ በኢትዮጵያ ተዋጊ አርበኞች ከበባ ውስጥ የገባቺው። በዚህ ላይ ቀን አልፎ ሌሊት ሲተካ የውሃ ጥም ገድሎአቸው በዚያው ላይ ጥይት እየዘነበባቸው ችግር ውስጥ ገቡ። ሻለቃዋ (ቦጦሊዋ) ከበባውን ሰብራ ለማምለጥ ብትሞክርም ፈጽሞ ልታመልጥ አልቻለም። ረዳት ድረስልን ቢባል አልደረሰላትም። በርሃብ እና በውሃ ጥም ተገረፈች። ወደፊት ብትል ወደ ላ ብትል መውጫ ቀዳዳ አጣች።

ውሃም ሆነ ምግብ ከአይሮፕላን በጃንጥላ ይጣልላቸው ጀመር። ሆኖም በጃንጥላ የተጣለላቸው ምግብ ዒላማውን እየሳተ ወደ ኢትዮጵያ አርበኞች ምሽግ እየወደቀ ችግር ውስጥ ገቡ።ርሃብ አጠቃቸው።አሁን ተከብበዋል። ርሃብ ስለጠናባቸው በመሸጉበት አካባቢ የስንዴ እሸት ስለበር እየሸመጠጡ ጥሬውን (ቅጠሉን) እንዳለ ያኝኩት ገቡ። ያ አልበቃ ብሎአቸው ለመጫኛ (ለአጋሰሶች) ምግብ ተብሎ የተጫነ “የእህል ገለባ” እንደ አጋሰስ ጎሰሙት (ቃሙት)፡ ያ አልበቃ ብሎአቸው ባካባቢው ያገኙትን ቅጥል እየሸመጠጡ እያኘኩ ራሃባቸውን ለማስታገስ ሞከሩ

ከዚያ መከራ እና ስቃይ በላ “ሚኖቪረ-27” የተባለ የጣሊያን ተዋጊ ሻለቃ ከበባውን ሰብረው እንዲወጡ እገዛ አደረገላቸው። ሓምድ (ዓዋተ) በዚህ ጊዜ ረዳት ስላገኘ ባንድ መስመር ከበባውን ሰብሮ በእግረ መንገዱ የኢትዮጵያ ሰራዊቶችን ንብረት ዘርፎ ለመውጣት በመቻሉ ከሌሎች የባንዳ ጓዶቹ ጋር “ምርጥ ተዋጊዎች” (Bel Merito) የሚል የመዳሊያ ሽልማት እና “ቡሉቕባሽ” የሚል ወታደራዊ ማዕረግ ተሰጠው።

ከላይ የተመለከትነው አስቸጋሪ ከበባ ካለፈ በላ እንደገና ከጊዜ በላ ጎጃም ውስጥ “አሞራ-ገድል” በተባለ ቦታ ከራስ አያሌው ጦር ጋር ገጠመ። እዛም የባሰ ተከብብቦ የኢትዮጵያ አርበኞች የጣሊያን አስካሪዎቹን የመሸጉበትን አካባቢ እሳት ለኩሰውበት። መውጫ ቀዳዳ አጥቶ ውጥረት ውስጥ ገባ። ሦስት ቀን እሳት እና ጥይት እየተለበለቡ መከራቸውን አዩ። እዛም በእሳት እየተለበለቡ በቁም እያዩ ከመሞት ጠላት ይግደለን ብሎ ዓዋተ “እየተቃጠለ ያለው የቀርቀሃ ዛፎችን” በሰይፉ እየቀነጠሰ ወደ ጥግ በመሸመቅ ክፍት አግኝቶ ሰንጥቆ በመውጣት ከከበባውን አመለጠ። ከ178 ፈረሰኛ ተዋጊ 100ዎቹ በእሳት እና በጥይት እየተለቀሙ ሲሞቱ 78 ብቻ የዱሩን እሳት እና ጥይቱን እየተጋፈጡ ህይወታቸውን ለማዳን መብቃታቸውን ይገልጻል። በዚህ ወቅት ዓዋተ መጠነኛ የጥይት ጉዳት ስለደረሰበት ጎንደር ከተማ ሕክምና ተደርጎለት ወደ ካራቤኔሪ (የጸጥታ ፖሊስ) ተዛውሮ እንዲሰራ መደረጉን መጽሐፉ ይገልጻል።

ይህ ባንዳ ካሓዲ ባባቱ ወገን የተወለዱት ኢትዮጵያውያን ወንድሞቹን የሆነቺውን አፍሪካዊት አገር ኢትዮጵያ ለመውረር የመጀመሪያ የጣሊያን ባንዳ ሆኖ መረብ የተሻገረ ሰው መሆኑን አዲስ ታሪክ ብቅ የማለቱን ክስተት እንድታዩት ብየ ነው ይህንን ላካፍላችሁ የፈለግኩት።

ክፍልት ሁለት መጽሐፉን ካቆምኩበት ገጽ በመቀጠል  ሳነብብ እመለስበታለሁ።
