Our Thinking verses God’s Promises

Written by Josephine Minas   

The Resurrection tells us that with God all things are possible and it validates the claims of Jesus.
Christ’s Resurrection shows us that his promises are always kept even when we think they cannot or will not be kept.  An unknown author has made a list of "Our Thinking verses God’s Promises.” This list helps us realize that our thinking is not always correct when it comes to the what the Lord can do:

We think: "It’s impossible" God says: All things are possible (Luke 18:27)
We think: "I’m too tired" God says: I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28-30)
We think: "Nobody really loves me" God says: I love you (John 33:16& John 13:34)
We think: "I can not go on" God says: My grace is sufficient for you (II Corinthians. 12:9& Psalm 91:15)
We think: "I can’t figure things out" God says I will direct you steps (Proverbs 3:5, 6)
We think: "I can’t do it" God says: You can do all things through me (Phil.4:13)
We think: "I’m not able" God says: I am able (II Corinthians. 9:8)
We think: "It’s not worth it" God says: It will be worth it (Romans 8:28)
We think: "I can’t forgive myself" God says: I forgive you (I John 1:9 & Romans 8:1)
We think: "I can’t manage" God says: I will supply all your needs (Phi. 4:19)
We think: "I’m afraid" God says: I have not given you the spirit of fear (II Tim. 1:7)
We think: "I’m always worried and frustrated" God says: Cast all your cares on me (I Peter 5:7)
We think: "I don’t have enough faith" God says: I’ve given everyone a measure of faith (Romans 12:3)
We think: "I’m not smart enough" God says I give you wisdom (I Corinthians 1:30)
We think: "I feel alone" God says: I will never leave you or forsake you (Hebrews 13:4, 5)

Easter Epistler by His Holiness MarDinkha IV Catholicos Patriarch-Holy Apostolic Catholic Assyrian Church of the East

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

This a video of  Easter Epistler by His Holiness MarDinkha IV Catholicos Patriarch-Holy Apostolic Catholic Assyrian Church of the East-April 8th 2012.



Letter from Cor-Bishop Fr. George Bet Rasho

Written by Josephine Minas   

Easter is a very special time for us as believers in our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ. It is during Easter that we are reminded of our Savior’s deep love for each one of us. We take time to stand in awe of Jesus’ crucifixion, His death, and celebrate His resurrection. It is because of His sacrifice that, if we believe in Him, we are redeemed and have hope of eternal life. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not parish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

As we go through this season of Soma, my prayer is that it will be a fruitful Christ centered time of renewal and rebirth.  I pray that this time of delving into the Word of God has been a time that has edified our spirits and nurtured our continued growth in Christ. Easter is a reminder that we have to live each day as believers who have a Savior that is risen.  As the body of the risen Christ, we are called to be His hands, feet, and heart. Let us continue in our service to one another, as John 13:35 states, By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."

The celebration of the Assyrian New Year is the celebration of the renewal of life.  As we rejoice in our heritage, traditions, culture and language; let us also renew our selves and our commitment to our great Assyrian name. Let us evaluate our role in uniting the Assyrian people, our role in perpetuating our cultural essence, and our role in impacting the community around us with the Word of God.

Every Sunday service we remember the passion, death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior. I encourage you to invite all of your family and friends to be actively involved in our weekly services. Let the Spirit of God move in our hearts and let us all be sensitive to the prompting of His Holy move. Let us live life victoriously as our God and Savior is risen!

The Sanctuary, by the grace of God, is close to completion. I thank you all for your continued support, patience and prayers with the construction process. I encourage us all to continue in that same spirit of giving, for your continued prayers, and for God’s blessing to be in the process. There are still items that need sponsorship, please feel free to visit the church office for more information. It is all for God’s glory.

May you all have a wonderful Easter, and a blessed New Year. I pray that our merciful father will grant each one of us joy, health, and prosperity; but most of all, I pray that we all have a personal relationshiop with Jesus Christ. May God continue to bless us all.

In His Service,

Cor-Bishop Fr. George Bet Rasho


Councilman Dennis P. Zine

St. Mary's Assyrian Church of the East honors Councilman Zine

Last week, Councilman Dennis P. Zine received an award from Father George Bet-Rasho from St. Mary Holy Apostolic Catholic Assyrian Church of the East in Tarzana. The award came as a surprise to the Councilman, who was greeted unexpectedly by members of St. Mary’s Parish at the City Hall Chambers. The award was a tribute to Councilman Zine’s continual commitment to the faith-based community. Several years back, St. Mary’s Parish experienced a tragedy when their congregation was engulfed in flames. Councilman Zine visited the congregation that night of the tragedy and continued to support the congregation through their rebuilding stages. Councilman Zine was humbled and appreciative to receive such an award from the congregation.
