Anglican Church Worldwide

News & Articles

[IMPORTANT NOTICE]

The Anglican Church Worldwide (ACW) renamed itself to the Worldwide Anglican Church (WAC) in July 2017 However, we regret to inform that as an unfortunate outcome, there has been an outbreak of group of pretenders who called themselves clergy proclaiming to be representing the Anglican Church Worldwide (ACW).
This group is entirely false as they possess neither authorization nor accreditation by the official former Anglican Church Worldwide (ACW).

Worldwide Anglican Church(WAC) has purview over 700 parishes and 800 clergies across five continents which will enhance the Church in strength under a unified traditional Anglican faith.

THE GOSPEL ON THE MOVE

Read:- Exodus 17:8-16

STEADY HANDS

"But Moses' hands became heavy, so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it. And Aaron and Hit supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun." (Exodus 17:12)

She Moses held up his hands in prayer, Israel prevailed in the battle, however, when he lowered them, the enemy "Amalek," prevailed.

These are days when as never before our hands need to be steady in prayer; steady in the meditation of His word; steady in witness; steady in separation from the world; steady in secret faithfulness when only His eyes are upon us; and steady when under severe attacks of temptation.

The enemy is ever at alert to throw us down, and it is often when we think we are strong that the most subtle attack can come.

O beloved! Take care! Watch and pray! Lift up the hands in prayer again and come close to the Lord today.

May He keep our hands "STEADY UNTIL THE GOING DOWN OF THE SUN"; then what joy to look on the lovely face of Jesus Christ in the morning!

HYMN

Faithful I'll be to the Saviour I adore,
Others may leave Thee, but I'll Thee more,
Faithful I'll be to the Saviour I adore,
Fill with Thy Spirit this life evermore.

Yours in the Lord's Vineyard. (Dojeh James Edijalive.)

Collect

Almighty Father,
whose will is to restore all things
in your beloved Son, the King of all:
govern the hearts and minds of those in authority,
and bring the families of the nations,
divided and torn apart by the ravages of sin,
to be subject to his just and gentle rule;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

Amen.

THE GOSPEL ON THE MOVE

Read:- Exodus 15:3-26

"TOUCH ME AGAIN, LORD"

" . . . I am the LORD Who heals you." (Exodus 15 26)

This is a wonderful promise: however, like so many others, it is conditional. The LORD said: "If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your GOD and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His Commandments and keep all His statues, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you."

Oh, that we might always heed to His Commandments! Oh, that we might always do that which is pleasing in His sight! Shall we not search our hearts afresh and see where we have failed to do so?

Are you seeking healing of body, mind or soul? Then, beloved of the Lord, as you comply with God's conditions, you may boldly claim His promise, "I am the LORD who heals you."

HYMN

The healing of His seamless dress,
Is by our beds of pain,
We touch Him in life's throng and press,
And we are whole again.

Yours in the Lord's Vineyard (Dojeh, J. E.)

THE GOSPEL ON THE MOVE

Read:- Exodus 14:13-31

STANDING STILL

"Fear ye not, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord . . . for the Egyptians whom ye have seen today ye shall see them again no more for ever." (Exodus 14:13)

Everything seemed hopeless. The enemy with all his might was bearing down upon the children of Israel. There was apparently no way out and the people seemed doomed to destruction. But one man—Moses—was in touch with God and knew that His wonder working Lord would not fail. So he cried out: "Fear ye not, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord."

And just at the right moment God stepped in. What a mighty deliverance came when God open up the waters of the Red Sea for His people! But what a dreadful end for His enemies when He trembled the wave upon them.

Are you standing at "Wit's End Corner"? Then wait, stand still and look to the Lord for deliverance. Thank you Jesus.

HYMN

My times are in thy hand,
Why should I doubt or fear?
My Father's hand will never cause
His cold a needless tear.

Yours in the Lord's Vineyard. (Dojeh, James Edijalive)

[📜Lectionaries] The Lessons Appointed for Use on: Twenty Fourth Sunday after Pentecost, Nov 4th

The Collect
Almighty and merciful God, it is only by your gift that your faithful people offer you true and laudable service: Grant that we may run without stumbling to obtain your heavenly promises; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Old Testament
Ruth 1:1-18
In the days when the judges ruled, there was a famine in the land, and a certain man of Bethlehem in Judah went to live in the country of Moab, he and his wife and two sons. The name of the man was Elimelech and the name of his wife Naomi, and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Chilion; they were Ephrathites from Bethlehem in Judah. They went into the country of Moab and remained there. But Elimelech, the husband of Naomi, died, and she was left with her two sons. These took Moabite wives; the name of the one was Orpah and the name of the other Ruth. When they had lived there about ten years, both Mahlon and Chilion also died, so that the woman was left without her two sons and her husband.

Then she started to return with her daughters-in-law from the country of Moab, for she had heard in the country of Moab that the Lord had considered his people and given them food. So she set out from the place where she had been living, she and her two daughters-in-law, and they went on their way to go back to the land of Judah. But Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, "Go back each of you to your mother's house. May the Lord deal kindly with you, as you have dealt with the dead and with me. The Lord grant that you may find security, each of you in the house of your husband." Then she kissed them, and they wept aloud. They said to her, "No, we will return with you to your people." But Naomi said, "Turn back, my daughters, why will you go with me? Do I still have sons in my womb that they may become your husbands? Turn back, my daughters, go your way, for I am too old to have a husband. Even if I thought there was hope for me, even if I should have a husband tonight and bear sons, would you then wait until they were grown? Would you then refrain from marrying? No, my daughters, it has been far more bitter for me than for you, because the hand of the Lord has turned against me." Then they wept aloud again. Orpah kissed her mother-in-law, but Ruth clung to her.

So she said, "See, your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her gods; return after your sister-in-law.” But Ruth said,

“Do not press me to leave you
or to turn back from following you!

Where you go, I will go;
Where you lodge, I will lodge;

your people shall be my people,
and your God my God.

Where you die, I will die—
there will I be buried.

May the Lord do thus and so to me,
and more as well,

if even death parts me from you!”

When Naomi saw that she was determined to go with her, she said no more to her.

The Response
Psalm 146
Lauda, anima mea

1 Hallelujah!
Praise the Lord, O my soul! *
I will praise the Lord as long as I live;
I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.

2 Put not your trust in rulers, nor in any child of earth, *
for there is no help in them.

3 When they breathe their last, they return to earth, *
and in that day their thoughts perish.

4 Happy are they who have the God of Jacob for their help! *
whose hope is in the Lord their God;

5 Who made heaven and earth, the seas, and all that is in them; *
who keeps his promise for ever;

6 Who gives justice to those who are oppressed, *
and food to those who hunger.

7 The Lord sets the prisoners free;
the Lord opens the eyes of the blind; *
the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down;

8 The Lord loves the righteous;
the Lord cares for the stranger; *
he sustains the orphan and widow,
but frustrates the way of the wicked.

9 The Lord shall reign for ever, *
your God, O Zion, throughout all generations.
Hallelujah!

The Epistle
Hebrews 9:11-14
When Christ came as a high priest of the good things that have come, then through the greater and perfect tent (not made with hands, that is, not of this creation), he entered once for all into the Holy Place, not with the blood of goats and calves, but with his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption. For if the blood of goats and bulls, with the sprinkling of the ashes of a heifer, sanctifies those who have been defiled so that their flesh is purified, how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to worship the living God!

The Gospel
Mark 12:28-34
One of the scribes came near and heard the Saducees disputing with one another, and seeing that Jesus answered them well, he asked him, “Which commandment is the first of all?” Jesus answered, “The first is, ‘Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one; you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Then the scribe said to him, “You are right, Teacher; you have truly said that ‘he is one, and besides him there is no other’; and ‘to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the strength,’ and ‘to love one’s neighbor as oneself,’ —this is much more important than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.” When Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” After that no one dared to ask him any question.

THE GOSPEL ON THE MOVE

Read: Psalm 55

THE SECRET OF STRENGTH

"As for me, I will call upon God, and the Lord shall save me. Evening and morning and at noon will I pray and cry aloud, and He shall hear my voice." (Psalm 55:16-17)

Here lies the great secret of victorious living. If only the people of God would "pray and cry aloud" in the evening and morning, and at noon" what wonderful things might happen.

All of our failure should be traced back to our neglect of the place of prayer. Oh, that the evening, the morning, and the noon might be transformed by His Presence!

Let us remember afresh that no matter what experience in Grace we may profess, me neglect the Throne of the Heavenly Grace at our peril.

Let us, therefore, with His help, get back to the blessed habit of lifting our hearts to Him at all times, but especially concentrating upon the "evening, and morning and at noon." Great victories await us if we do.

HYMN

Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer,
That calls me from a world of care:
And bids me at my Father's Throne,
Make all my wants and wishes known.

Yours in the Lord's Vineyard (Dojeh James Edijalive).
