People are different. And that prevents unity? Nothing of the sort! On the contrary, it is precisely these differences that make an efficient team. This is a new perspective opened up by Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider during the 2018 Pentecost service.

The events between Palm Sunday and Easter are full of suspense: a man is betrayed, scorned, accused, arrested, and killed. Jesus goes through hell and reaches heaven. A timeline from the Gospel of Mark.

Palm Sunday
It all begins on Palm Sunday, the Sunday before Easter. People are standing at the side of the road cheering Jesus Christ as He rides into Jerusalem on a donkey. It is a moving sight. Solemn. Festive. Loud. This is something people do not see every day. They acclaim their king, throw Him kisses, stretch their arms out to Him, and are full of good thoughts for Him. He is considered a miracle worker, a good preacher. He is one of them, a man of authority. Jesus lets them be. He knows that His hour has come. He spends the night with His friends in Bethany. He wants to rest. Bethany is a place where He finds peace and quiet before the storm. Continue reading

今度の日曜日、世界中の新使徒教会では、今年度最初の故人のための特別礼拝が執り行われます。神様は全人類が救われることをお望みであるという悟りに基づいて、私たちは、サクラメントがこの世にいる魂だけに限定されるものではない、と信じております。私たちは全人類のために祈りを捧げます。魂を悪から救い出し御自分にひきよせることができるのはイエス様だけです。救いは、地上の生きている者だけに限定されるものではありません。イエス様が使徒をお遣わしになったのは、困窮にあえぐすべての者たちを助けるためです。この世あの世に関係なくすべての魂を憐れみ、彼らの救いに貢献したいという思いを持ちましょう。

Coming Sunday the New Apostolic Church worldwide celebrates the first of three yearly divine services for the Departed. Based on the understanding  that God wants all men to be saved we believe that sacraments are not limited to souls living on earth. We pray for all mankind. Only Jesus can deliver from evil and draw souls to Him. Salvation is not just limited to life on earth. Jesus sent His Apostles to help all in need; let us have empathy for all souls, here and in the beyond and have the desire to contribute to their salvation. Continue reading

敬愛する兄弟姉妹の皆さん、

Coming from Micronesia, Apostle Lodewick visited Tama Congregation on the Second Advent weekend in preparation for the transition of the congregations in Japan to the Australian District which is planned for autumn 2018.

After a fellowship on Saturday afternoon when he was welcomed according to Japanese custom with Koto music and had a chance to practice calligraphy, the Apostle gathered the brothers in the Ministry and explained them what it means to trust in God.  He referred to an aphorism which says, “Hope is not the conviction that something will turn out well but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out.” He then told them that our Chief Apostle, when he was in Australia quoted this aphorism, and added, “our hope is in God.”
