On 29th of November Ilyas Mukhametdinov preached about hope for God's promises on the sermon of «Philadelphia» church. Bible says there is a hope for God that comes from sufferings (Romans 5:1-5). This hope «does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit». This text conveys the message that we can not be afraid but be sure. We now see signs of what will be opened to us with more power - a revelation of God's love. Due to Paul the Apostle says faith is confidence in what we hope for, we are able to believe- just to see, discover and show the world this revelation. If we speak about these three - faith, hope and love - it is love that remains the same being perfect and given us from God.

Pastor Pavel Zhelnovakov preached about time and dates. God talked to Israel through Jeremiah: «Even the stork in the sky knows her appointed seasons, and the dove, the swift and the thrush observe the time of their migration. But my people do not know the requirements of the Lord» (Jeremiah 8:7). Pastor noticed, the man, who lost his fellowship with God, also had lost knowledge of His paths and His dates. Jeremiah describes creation, as against men, knowing its times and dates. It shows the meaning of knowledge - from the beginning it has been natural and obvious for sensitive. Solomon confirms this thought. He says it carries big harm for a man not to know time and way of what is going to be. But before he notices: «the wise heart will know the proper time and procedure» (Ecclesiastes 8:5-7). «Being unaware gives a birth to agonizing suspense and then - exclamation» - pastor noticed. After warning about the results of being unaware, the server has called people to use an ability to love God and follow His laws, because it is written «now is the time of God's favor, now is the day of salvation» (2 Corinthians 6:2).er warning about the results of being unaware, the server has called people to use an ability to love God and follow His laws, because it is written «now is the time of God's favor, now is the day of salvation» (2 Corinthians 6:2).
