2 Baptist Wrld Alliance News June 2001 Frm the General Secretary Dentn Ltz The BWA, The UN, and Human Rights n 1975 the BWA Executive Cmmittee, which met in Australia, apprved the BWA applying fr status as an NGO (Nn-gvernmental Organizatin) with the United Natins. Sn thereafter the UN apprved the Baptist Wrld Alliance s applicatin. Since then we have had representatives in Geneva, New Yrk, and Vienna. Of curse ur main representatin has been at the United Natins headquarters in New Yrk City. We have had three significant Baptist representatives since that time: Eleanr Schnurr, Carl Tiller, and Gerge Yunger. Each has been respected as a leader in the assciatin f religius NGOs. In fact there is an annual award given t the mst effective NGO, the award being named after the BWA s first representative, Eleanr Schnurr! Recent newspaper reprts and radi bradcasts have indicated that the BWA s membership as an NGO is up fr renewal and that ur BWA membership may, be threatened. (See UN Optimism stry bellw.) This exercise gives us pause t ask the questin, Why wuld the BWA want t be an NGO at the United Natins? There are several imprtant reasns fr us t be an NGO at the UN: Christian Presence: Religius freedm, human rights and justice are nt islated cncerns fr Christians. Rather they are central t the message f Jesus and the Kingdm. By being an NGO at the United Natins the BWA has an pprtunity t express publicly befre many natins ur Christian cncerns fr justice, peace, and righteusness. Our absence wuld mean that there wuld be ne, less Christian vice representing ur Christian heritage and traditin, smetime at dds with thers. A Defense f Religius Freedm: Since the fall f the Berlin Wall in Nvember 1989 the wrld has nt becme a friendlier place fr religius freedm. In fact, just the ppsite has happened. Never befre his there been a mre blatant and pen persecutin f Christians than tday. Religius wars cntinue t threaten Bsnia and Serbia, Israel and Palestine, Indnesia, India and Nigeria. By being an NGO at the UN, ur BWA representatives can defend religius freedm and be a vice fr ur believers in the Tw-thirds wrld wh are experiencing persecutin. Better t be Present at the Table than t be Absent and Ignred: Our BWA member bdies frm minrity cuntries are eager fr the BWA t be at the table. If the were nt there then wh wuld raise their vices in prtest and defense f their just cause fr freedm and justice? The fact is being at the table allws us the freedm t represent ur strng cmmitment t religius freedm fr all! We will nt be muzzled by the UN, by secular rganizatins, r ther religius grups. As Baptists, faithful t the liberating pwer f Christ, we will cntinue t be a vice fr the viceless, a vice crying in the wilderness fr freedm and justice fr all! UN Optimism Cntrary t reprts in the Washingtn Times, May 17, abut its status as a Nn-gvernmental Organizatin (NGO) at the United Natins (UN) the Baptist Wrld Alliance remains very ptimistic that it will be re-accredited as an NGO, a psitin it has held with the UN since Dentn Ltz, general secretary f the BWA, says the BWA will address cncerns frm the Ecnmic and Scial Cuncil (EcSc) which is currently cnsidering accreditatin f NGOs. The BWA cmmitment t defending the principle f religius freedm will cntinue, Ltz said. We will nt be muzzled, nr restrain ur vice frm defending thse wh are persecuted, n matter their race, cuntry f rigin, r religin.

3 Christ Calls t Act Part 4 Thmas Csmades 6. Be a Cnquerr n the curse f histry, thughts and aspiratins have centered n cnquest, chiefly military cnquest, which in Islam cnstitutes a religius dgma (Quran, 33:25). Cnquest f new cntinents, cnquest f knwn muntain peaks, cnquest f new frntiers f science and knwledge, cnquest in the arena f sprts and pursuits in ther areas are all pressing fr this high achievement. Since creatin, since the defeat f Adam and Eve, wh talks abut spiritual cnquest? In a life tenure when human beings experience ne defeat after anther, wh talks abut spiritual cnquest? N ne, except Jesus Christ, the mighty cnquerr ver the wrld, sin, Satan, hell and death. He alne is the One wh says, I have vercme the wrld (Jhn 16:33). Abut his victries, see Revelatin 5:5; 6:2; 17:14. Abut the victries f His believers, see Revelatin 12:11; 15:2; 21:7. The prayers f the saints undubtedly brught such majestic triumph t them. As seen in Christ s admnitin t awake, likewise in this the admnitin t be a cnquerr, the effect f prayer is strngly implied. In fact, the earnest persn will detect Christ s call t prayer in every admnitin. Thse wh crucified the eternal Christ were jeering and celebrating. But when they were infrmed abut His resurrectin they resrted t fabricatins in rder t cver their apparent defeat. Christ is the abslute Victr. N pwer n earth, in heaven r hell can ever defeat Him. He is calling His believers t be victrs, drawing the supply f strength entirely frm Him (1 Jhn 5:4,5). Let n ne even entertain the ntin f victry apart frm its being identified with the pwer f His resurrectin (Philippians 3:10). The germ f defeat had already crept int the life f the churches addressed frm heaven. The prime afflictin f the Church thrughut the centuries has been and still is defeat. The frces which vercme are sin, allegiance t ther masters, dctrinal deviatin, inner cnflicts and a hst f ther seditius allurements. The picture f a defeated church which nrmally is destined fr victry is ne f the saddest sights. Christ is pleading with His fllwers t embrace His victry, making it their wn. Let the reader fllw thrugh the scriptures t find the resurceful blessings He will bestw n the victrs. The ever-triumphant Lrd is inviting us t participate in His victry. Can there be any excuse fr defeat with such a Master? 7. Open The Dr Ancient Ladicea was a wealthy banking and cmmercial city in the prsperus Lycus Valley f Asia Minr. Every amenity was hers. There was ample mney t erect the mst sphisticated frtificatins t defend the sprawling metrplis. The Herculean gates imbedded int the walls culd be clsed and pened arbitrarily by thse within. In the ld wrld, enjying the prtectin f strng walls with wellplaced gates was an undeniable advantage. Hw distressing is the utlk f a church which erects fences in self-prtectin, all the while carrying ut her selfmtivated prgrams. Alas, the very Head f the Church is left ut while the church enjys her cmfrtable exercise in self-gratificatin. This wide wrld is flded with all srts f churches in which Jesus Christ is neither the head nr the indisputable ruler. Pause fr a mment and cnsider the state f yur wn church. Is there any area where the Lrd, wh gave His life fr the Church and lves the Church, has been pushed aside, replaced by human nrms and whims? When there was n king in ld Israel, every persn did as he saw fit (Judges 21:25). The state f the church in these critical times is sadly reminiscent f that ancient disrderliness. As lng as Christ is nt hnred n His rightful thrne in all areas f the church, being free t chase away frm His temple all human intrusins and avcatins, nthing can be remedied r bettered. The thrng f prblems in the church can be remedied with a single strke: pen wide the clsed dr f the church and let her Head in. Recgnize in full His lng-ignred authrity, acknwledge Him as the lving, caring hst at the banquet table. He is ready t feed everyne with abundant prvisins He wh readily fed the thusands with a supernatural act. In the church in Thyatira, a blatant feast was carried n, which the Lrd rebuked:...jezebel, wh calls herself a prphetess and is teaching and beguiling my servants t practice immrality and t eat fd sacrificed t idls (Revelatin 2:20b). This church had pened the dr and fallen under the spell f a self-impsing hstess, ffering all srts f bnxius, vulgar meat and drink. She lured undiscerning cmmunicants t eat at her table and then engage in rgies. The manipulatin was widespread. Hw many have crept, and are creeping, int the assembly knwn as church! Like Jezebel f ld they have n difficulty wrming their way in, and then create havc arund their pretended banquet table.

5 The Natin Remembers Jhn Hus Natasha Legierski, translatin Peter Branda Remember yur leaders, wh preached Gd s Wrd t yu Fllw their faith. Hebrews 13:7 ur memries f any particular persn are usually related t a deep persnal experience, an extrardinary deed r ability, r the ideals f that persn. Memries are stred in ur minds as a variety f images. Every persn has his wn ideas abut smene whm he has never seen, but has nly heard r read abut. What is it that helps us create this specific image? In mdern times phtgraphs can be f sme help. Hwever, mst imprtantly, it is the infrmatin abut the persn s life that helps us t create an image. Jhn Hus, the man f faith f the 15 th century is still present in the thughts f many sincere Christians. In all likelihd the images f Hus physical appearance that have been preserved t this day d nt represent reality. A lack f surces and the elapsed time veil his appearance in a shrud f mystery. The inner being f this significant histrical figure is, hwever, clearly revealed. The writings f Hus reveal the image f his spirit. He still speaks t every persn f the 21 st century. The message Jhn Hus has left is relevant tday and will cntinue t be relevant in the future. He became the leader and spkesman f the Czech natin. Tday, we realize that he des nt speak nly fr the Czechs, but fr every true Christian. Hus sincere relatinship with Gd and his lve fr the Scriptures pened his eyes t Jesus Christ and frmed the character f a pastr and refrmer. If smene wants t create refrm, he must first f all be truly refrmed himself. His way f life and thughts must demnstrate refrm in all circumstances. In ther wrds, a refrmer must be a great example. Jhn Hus became an example in the sphere f religin, mrality, sciety, educatin, truth and justice. What des Jhn Hus have t say t us tday? Let us examine sme f his wrds. Religius Sphere: The fundatin f religin is lve fr Gd: True lve is t lve Gd abve all things and t lve ur neighbr as urselves. Lve must als be practical: Every persn has his wn will t submit t the will f Gd in all things. Mral Sphere: I ask in the Lrd s name, that yu wuld fear Gd and wuld keep His cmmandments. But I ask yu by the mercy f Jesus Christ, nt t fllw me in any carelessness that yu may have seen in me. Yu knw that befre I became a priest I wuld ften play chess and this way waste much time and bring thers and myself t anger. I have als erred in cuntless ther things and I submit my self t yur prayers as yu ask ur gracius Lrd t frgive me. Scietal Sphere: Meekness builds great men; greater meekness builds greater men.

7 The Observatin Twer Heavens Help Rev. Jhn E. Karenk e ve all heard the prverb: Gd helps thse wh help themselves. Many peple are very capable, and culd be classified as D-it-yurselfers. But even they face situatins where they need special help. Crisis situatins can drive anyne t their knees, calling fr help. Smene has put it well this way: A Christian is smene wh has invisible means f supprt. That kind f heavenly help is available, when there s nwhere else t g but UP. The wrd help (used ver 100 times in the Bible) illustrates Gd s unlimited pwer at hand t thse wh seek it. The invitatin is always there: Cme unt me all ye that labr and are heavy laden, and I will give yu rest (Matt. 11:28). Jesus said, Him that cmeth unt me I will in n wise cast ut (Jhn 6:37). Cmers vercme thrugh Christ. One f my favrite verses is The Lrd is my helper, and I will nt fear (Heb. 13:5). Althugh the cntext cncerns harmful peple, I believe ther verses crrbrate that Gd s help is available in any situatin f need. My Gd shall supply all yur need accrding t His riches in glry by Christ Jesus (Phil. 4:19). In yunger years, David had an almst verwhelming amunt f truble, but aid frm abve available in abunding measure in respnse t his request: Give us help frm truble ; Gd is...a very present help in truble ; My help cmeth frm the Lrd ( Ps. 108:12, 46:1, 121:2 ). The prphet Isaiah adds his assurance f Divine help with these wrds: I will help thee, saith the Lrd ; The Lrd Gd will help me (41:14, 50:7). Many thers in the biblical recrd verify the ability and availability f Gd as a helper. Gd prvided a help meet fr Adam (Gen. 2:18, 20). Mses named his secnd sn Eliezer, which means My Gd is an help. (Ex.18:4). The apstle Paul facing death said, Having...btained help f Gd (Acts 26:22). Jacb, n his death bed, blessed his sn Jseph with these wrds: The Gd f thy father...shall help thee (Gen.49:25). The Prphet Samuel, after victry ver the Philistines, placed a memrial stne and called it Ebenezer, which means: Hithert hath the Lrd helped us (I Sam.7:12). Can yu lk back frm yur present situatin and say, Ebenezer, making it persnal with a me at the end f that phrase? Has Gd prvided yur greatest need f salvatin? If nt, then settle that matter nce and fr all time with this simple scriptural prayer: Help me, O Lrd my Gd. Save me accrding t thy mercy (Ps. 109:26). Then lk t the Lrd fr the assurance f grwing hliness withut which n men shall see the Lrd (Heb.12:14). The very name f Jesus means that he shall save his peple frm their sins (Matt. 1:21). The Christian life can be described by these tw shrt phrases: He saves and he sanctifies, r makes hly. Hw are yu ding with Gd s help? I can d all things thrugh Christ Wh strengthens me (Phil.4:13). If yu are nt prgressing in yur Christian life, help yurself t Gd s help. He is available and able t meet all yur need! (Phil. 4:19) There need be n paupers in Gd s family. Ask and yu shall receive (Matt. 7:7). Amen. 80 Glrius Hpe Slavná nadìje July 2001

8 The Rev. Jhn E. Karenk 1330 Nrmandy Dr., Gdfrey, IL Hw D We Pray? Rev. Jhn E. Karenk st prayer is selfish; it s fr ur needs: hearth, health and wealth. We ask fr ur family needs: physical, financial and filial. It s largely, Lrd, bless me and my family, i.e., Jhnny needs a jb; Mary is sick and needs healing; Jimmy is having truble in schl; Betty is facing a divrce; Grandma is grieving after lsing Grandpa; and Lrd, I m having these recurring headaches, and I ve gt a sre back and we culd use mre mney t pay fr the new car and furniture we bught, etc., etc., etc... When Jesus taught the disciples t pray (Matt. 6:9-13), he started ut with three requests that were aimed at a higher pririty: Gd s hliness, Kingdm, and will. These are nt tempral things. The secnd cmmand teaches us nt t take the name f Gd lightly:...in vain (Exd. 20:7). The Kingdm f heaven (Gd) is a prminent theme in all the gspels and New Testament. Jesus said, I cme t d Thy will, O Gd (Heb. 10:7). The Scriptures clearly say that there are pririties when YE pray (Luke 11:2). Seek ye first the Kingdm f Gd and His righteusness, and all these things will be added unt yu (Matt. 6:33). Our agenda, when we pray, ften scuttles Gd s greater purpses, which He just may be accmplishing by the rifts, ruts, cavities, and catastrphes f ur selfish desires. I am nt saying we shuld nt pray abut ur persnal needs, but that Gd wants us t fcus n the mre imprtant, the eternal, mre than the tempral things that usually dminate ur prayers. In mst church prayer times, be they n Sunday mrning r at a time set aside fr a prayer meeting, the requests are almst entirely fr healings f the sick, unemplyment, safety in travel, cmfrt fr the bereaved, etc... All f these are tempral and lack the spiritual mtive that were cncerns f Biblical prayers, fr instance... With the return f ur Lrd n their minds, Paul prayed fr sme spiritual needs f Christians (2 Thess. 1:11,12): (1) that ur Gd wuld cunt yu wrthy f his calling, (2) fulfill all the pleasure f His gdness and (3) the wrk f faith with pwer. These are requests fr hliness and abundant life in effective service fr ur Lrd, all t the intent that Gd will be glrified by grace manifested t, fr, and in us! Peter s last recrded wrds are: But grw in grace and the knwledge f ur Lrd and Savir Jesus Christ. T Him be glry bth nw and frever. Amen (2 Peter 3:18). The wrds f Jesus are apprpriate in this cnnectin: A man s life cnsists nt in the abundance f the things which he pssesses (Luke 12:15). Are ur gals, purpses, aims, and desires in this life aimed tward the eternal, mre than the tempral and passing affairs that cnstrict, negate and nullify ur effectiveness as faithful and fruitful Christians? The Christian life begins with right prayer, cntinues with right living, and cncludes with the right gal: Glry t Gd in the highest (Lk. 2:14), that the name f ur Lrd Jesus Christ may be glrified in yu, and ye in Him (2 Thess. 1:12). We were created...t live fr Gd s glry (Isa. 43:7) and we d this when we live fruitful lives fr Him (Jhn 15:8): Herein is my Father glrified, that ye bear much fruit; s shall ye be my disciples. Fr what shuld we pray? May I suggest: T live with eternity s values in view, that we may be Zealus f gd wrks (Tit. 2:14), Redeeming the time, because the days are evil (Eph. 5:16), pressing tward the mark f the high calling f Gd in Christ Jesus...that we may knw Him and make Him knwn, as the gal and ambitin f ur lives (Phil. 3:14,10).

9 Czechslvak Baptist Cnventin f USA and Canada Organ Missin Amng Czechs and Slvaks in the Wrld Èeskslvenská baptistická knvence USA a Kanady Misijní tìles zasahující Èechy a Slváky p celém svìtì he Cnventin traces its histry t beginnings in Chicag, where a grwing Czech and Slvak immigratin settlement was taking place in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. German Baptists living in Chicag at that time made early effrts t reach the Slavic cmmunity f the city with the Gspel. (Mst Slvaks and Czechs wh settled in Nrth America were nminal Rman Cathlics r secularized free-thinkers. ) By the turn f the century tw Czech-speaking cngregatins were perating: First Bhemian Baptist Church and the Emmanuel Bhemian Baptist Church. Many mre cngregatins in Chicag and its suburban areas, as well as in ther parts f the United States and, later, Canada, sn were springing up. In the year 1909, the first Slavic Baptist Cnventin met under the leadership f the Reverend Vaclav Kralicek, then pastr f First Bhemian Baptist Church. Delegates included pastrs and lay persns frm Plish and Baptist churches. The Cnventin elected fur fficers t carry n it initial rganizatinal wrk. All were clergy: V. Kralicek, president; M. Steucek, vice president; K. Strelec, recrding secretary; and, V. Hlad, treasurer. Three years later, at a cnventin held in Pund, Wiscnsin, members decided that Plish Baptists and Czech Baptists shuld pursue their wrk separately. Immediately the Czechslvak Baptist Cnventin f America was rganized. It met the fllwing year, 1913, in Creightn, Pennsylvania, and has cnvened annually ever since. In the early years f Cnventin life, mst energy and activity was directed tward denminatin-like cncerns: the establishment f cngregatins and relatinship amng ministers, develpment f missin wrk, rganizatin f a wmen s auxiliary and yuth assciatins, discussin f thelgical cncerns, and cperatin in financial matters. Over subsequent years the Cnventin has called and sent Cnventin Histry missinaries t Czechslvakia and ther cuntries, and in ther ways it has always sught ways t supprt missin enterprises abrad. Sn the Cnventin saw the need fr a cmmunicatin linkage amng the cnstituency, and s it prvided fr a publishing ministry. Fr many years the cnventin magazine bre the name Pravda a Slavná nadeje meaning Truth and Glrius Hpe. Currently the peridical, a semimnthly, carries the title Glrius Hpe/Slavná nadeje. During the hardest years f the Cmmunist regime in Czechslvakia, when plitical rigidities made cntact with the hmelands f Central Eurpe difficult, the Cnventin turned its attentin t Haiti and the supprt f evangelism and church planting in that Caribbean natin. The fcus n Slavic lands, hwever, never was frgtten. In the 1970 s and 1980 s the Cnventin turned nce again t its first lve, supprting Gspel utreach in Czechslvakia, this time thrugh language-specific bradcasting f TransWrld Radi (TWR), Mnte Carl. Mre recently still, the 84th Annual Cnventin held in Minitnas, Manitba, 1993, vted t shift funding frm TWR bradcasting t the Baptist Unins f the Czech Republic and Slvakia directly. Since 1994, then, n an alternating year basis, the Czech Baptist leadership and the Slvak Baptist leadership make prpsals t the Czechslvak Baptist Cnventin f USA and Canada fr specific financial supprt. Prjects t which the Cnventin has devted funding in recent years include the renvatin f retreat facilities in the High Tatra Muntains, develpment f half-way husing in Olvi fr released prisners, the establishment f a residential facility fr the elderly in Litmerice, and the staging f large tent evangelism events in several majr cities. In the summer f 1997, the president and executive secretary f the Czechslvak Baptist Cnventin visited in the Czech Republic and Slvakia with lcal Baptist Unin leaders, pastrs, and cngregatins in an effrt t further slidify the nging, lng relatinship with Baptist brthers and sisters there. 82 Glrius Hpe Slavná nadìje July 2001

17 Hpe Even In Illness t the age f 24 years, when my daughter was 4 mnths ld, I became ill and after several mnths f underging medical examinatins, I heard the wrds that peple dread: Yu have a rare disease fr which there is n knwn cause r cure. We can try using radiatin treatment and chemtherapy t remve the tumr. The prgnsis is uncertain it is pssible that yu may nly live fr several weeks. At first, this was a great shck. I thught that all f this culd nt even be true. Seeking Help When a persn is ill, they have nly ne wish t be well again. It is nly natural t search fr help. We als lked fr help wherever pssible. We turned t reputable dctrs in the Czech republic and abrad. I received the prescribed radiatin and chemtherapy treatments all withut any imprvement t my cnditin. A number f friends ffered varius remedies that were guaranteed t help, such as petrleum drps, varius diets, Swedish drps, varius hmepathic medicatins, extracts frm Mexican cacti, as well as treatment by a naturpathic healer. We tried sme f these, but my cnditin cntinued t wrsen. My husband and I are Christians. We believe that Gd hlds ur lives in His hand and that He guides us even in situatins f everyday life. I must, hwever, admit that althugh I believed in Gds help, I relied n human help t an even greater extent. One day as I was reading the Bible, I read these wrds frm Jeremiah: Cursed is the ne wh trusts in man, wh depends n flesh fr his strength and whse heart turns away frm the Lrd. But blessed is the man wh trusts in the Lrd, whse cnfidence is in Him. This passage tuched me very deeply. Suddenly, my eyes were pened and I understd that the prblem was nt with Gd, but in me and in my apprach t the disease. I had nt trusted Gd cmpletely. I asked Gd fr frgiveness and decided t submit t His will with the understanding that He wuld lead my life in the best directin. It was an extrardinary mment, during which I felt Gds tuch and experienced great inner peace and jy. This mment was truly the breaking pint. We were n lnger the nes feverishly searching fr great dctrs, but it was Gd Himself wh began t send dctrs wh had experience with my disease t us. They suggested a new methd f treatment, after which my cnditin significantly imprved during the fllwing mnths. Hwever, I must nt mit what was mst imprtant: every treatment was cupled with my prayers, the prayers f my family and many ther believers. A Real Miracle Nearly 22 years have passed since I was diagnsed with my disease. During this time, we experienced many miracles within ur family. I will mentin at least ne f them. One day, abut seven years after the beginning f my disease I began t feel very strange. After a medical examinatin I was tld that alng with my current prblems, I als have a large tumr r cyst in my uterus. I had t g fr an ultrasund. The dctr there, wh was unaware f my situatin, calmly annunced: It is the twentieth week f pregnancy here I see the little arms and legs. This was truly shcking news, because as a result f the disease my hrmnal functins nearly ceased t functin. Als, at the beginning f the pregnancy I was examined by an experienced gyneclgist wh failed t recgnize any signs f the pregnancy. During this time I als had x-rays taken f my stmach. We realized that even the dctrs examining the x-rays verlked the signs f pregnancy. N ne culd believe that I was already in the fifth mnth f pregnancy. On the ne hand, this was a very jyful discvery, but we als knew that during the first mnths f pregnancy I received chemtherapy treatment and als had x-rays perfrmed. The dctrs made it clear that the likelihd f the child being healthy was minimal. On the cntrary, we were t expect that sme rgans may nt develp at all, r that they will be damaged. Tgether with my husband we kneeled and asked fr Gds help and guidance. After praying, we bth std up with an assurance that we wuld accept the child n matter what the situatin may be. We bth felt that we had n right t terminate the pregnancy. After fur mnths and eight days frm the time that I had learned abut my pregnancy ur sn was brn. He weighed 4.25 kg and was in better cnditin than many children f healthy mthers. After giving ur sn a very thrugh medical examinatin, the dctrs did nt find any signs f health defects and labeled this unusual case a miracle. Our sn recently celebrated his fifteenth birthday in perfect health. Hpe Even In Illness Currently, I am still struggling with my disease. It is nt easy, but I can declare that I am living with an internal peace that cmes frm Gd and des nt depend n external circumstances. In the past, the ne thing I was afraid f mst was that I wuld becme seriusly ill. Nw I have discvered that when I have Jesus Christ in my heart I d nt have t fear death. He frgave me my sins and thanks t His sacrifice n the crss I have been made righteus and at peace with the heavenly Father. I knw that if Gd tk me frm this earth I wuld be with Him in His kingdm. Our Gd is truly a pwerful and glrius Lrd, wh answers prayers. It is wrth it t trust in Him. Lydia Smilkva My grace is sufficient fr yu, fr my pwer is made perfect in weakness. 2 Cr. 12:9 Lydia Smilkva is the daughter f ThDr. Pavel Titera, the frmer president f the Bible Seminary in Olmuc. 90 Glrius Hpe Slavná nadìje July 2001

18 Nadìje i v nemci yl mnì dvacet ètyøi let a mé dceøi ètyøi mìsíce, kdy jsem nemcnìla a p nìklika mìsících vyetøvání jsem slyela slva, kterých se lidé tlik bávají: Onemcnìla jste vzácnì se vyskytujícím nádrvým nemcnìním, jeh pøíèina i léèba je neznámá. Zkusíme vás záøit a pdat chemterapii. Prgnóza je nejistámùe také jít jen nìklik týdnù ivta. V první chvíli t byl k. Myslela jsem si, e t vechn snad nemùe být pravda. Hledám pmc Kdy je èlvìk nemcný, má jen jedn pøání být pìt zdravý. Je jenm pøirzené, e zaène hledat pmc. I my jsme hledali pmc vude, kde se dal. Obraceli jsme se na významné lékaøe u nás i v zahranièí. Abslvvala jsem pøedepsanu chemterapii a záøení stále bez kýenéh zlep- ení. Øada pøátel nám v dbré víøe nabízela rùzné léèebné prstøedky, které mìly zaruèenì pmci: napø. petrlej p kapkách, rùzné diety, védské kapky, hubu Kmbuchu, Béresvy kapky, rùzné hmepatické léky, výtaky z mexických kaktusù a také léèbu u lidvéh léèitele. Nìkteré z nich jsme vyzkueli, avak mùj zdravtní stav se stále zhr- val. Jsme s manelem køesané. Vìøíme, e pán Bùh má ná ivt ve své ruce a e nás vede i v bìných záleitstech lidskéh ivta. Musím se vak pøiznat, e i kdy jsem vìøila v Bí pmc, pøece jsem více spléhala na pmc lidsku. Jednh dne jsem èetla v Bibli, v knize prrka Jeremjáe, tat slva: Prklet buï mu, který dufá v èlvìka, pírá se puhé tìl a srdcem se dvrací d Hspdina. Pehnán buï mu, který dufá v Hspdina, který dùvìøuje Hspdinu. Tat slva mne zasáhla jak blesk z èistéh nebe. Najednu se mnì tevøely èi a já jsem pznala, e prblém nebyl v Pánu Bhu, ale ve mnì a mém pøístupu k nemci. Vìøila jsem Bhu jen napùl. Prsila jsem Bha dputìní a rzhdla jsem se pdøídit jeh vùli s tím, e On pvede mùj ivt tím nejlepím smìrem. Byla t zvlátní chvíle, ve které jsem pcitila Bí dtek a prívala hlubký vnitøní pkj a radst. Od té chvíle dl ke skuteènému zlmu. U jsme t nebyli my, kteøí hreènì hledali nejvìtí lékaøské kapacity, ale Pán Bùh sám nám zaèal psílat d cesty lékaøe, kteøí mìli urèité zkuensti právì s tut nemcí. Navrhli nvý zpùsb léèby, p které se mùj zdravtní stav bìhem nìklika mìsícù výraznì zlepil. Nesmím vak pmenut t nejdùleitìjí: kadá léèba byla prvázena mými mdlitbami, mdlila se za mne také celá mje rdina a mnh dalích vìøících lidí. Skuteèný zázrak Od vypuknutí mé nemci ubìhl ji témìø dvaadvacet let. Bìhem tét dby jsme zaili v nai rdinì mnh zázrakù. Zmíním se jednm z nich. Jednh dne, byl t asi sedm let d zaèátku mé nemci, jsem se zaèala citit velmi pdivnì. Pøi následném vyetøeni na nklgii jsem se dvìdìla, e mám ke svým dsavadním prblémùm jetì navíc v dìlze velký nádr neb cystu. la jsem na ultrazvukvé vyetøení. Tam mnì paní dktrka, která nic mé situaci nevìdìla, pøi vyetøeni klidnì známila: Je t dvacátý týden tìhtenstvítady vidím ruèièky, nièky. T byla skuteènì kující zpráva. Vdy v dùsledku naru- ené hypfýzy mnì vlivem nemcnìní u nìklik let hrmnální funkce takøka nefungvaly. Navíc jsem na pèátku tìhtenství byla na vyetøení u zkuené a peèlivé gyneklky, která vak tìhtenství nepznala. V té dbì jsem prdìlala také rentgenvé vyetøení bøicha. Zpìtnì jsme si uvìdmili, e také rentgenlg i zkuený intemista pøehlédli na snimcích známky, svìdèící tìhtenství. Nikd nemhl uvìøit, e jsem ji pátý mìsíc v jiném stavu. Byl t na jedné stranì radstné zjitìní, ale na druhé stranì jsme vìdìli, e právì v prvních mìsících tìhtenství jsem brala chemterapii a byla rentgenvána. Lékaøi nás upzrnili, e pravdìpdbnst, e se dítì nardí zdravé, je minimální. Napak, dá se pøedpkládat, e se nìjaký rgán vùbec nevyvine neb bude pkzený. Splu s manelem jsme pklekli k mdlitbì a prsili Bí pmc a vedení. Od mdlitby jsme ba vstali s vnitøním ujitìním, e si dítì necháme a pøijmeme je takvé, jaké bude. Cítili jsme, e nemáme práv nechat tìhtenstvi uknèit. Za ètyøi mìsíce a sm dní d chvíle, kdy jsem se dzvìdìla svém tìhtenství, se nardil ná syn. Váil 4,25 kg a byl na tm lépe ne mnhé dìti zdravých matek. Lékaøi pøi velmi pdrbném vyetøení naeh syna neshledali sebemení zdravtní prblémy a s phnutím tent nebvyklý pøípad znaèili za zázrak. Ná syn v plném zdraví nedávn slavil své patnácté narzeniny. Nadìje i v nemci V suèasné dbì stále bjuji se svu nemcí. Není t lehké, ale stále mhu vyznávat, e iji s vnitøním pkjem, který má svùj pùvd v Bhu a není závislý na vnìjich klnstech. Vdy jediná vìc, které jsem se kdy v ivtì bála, byl t, abych nebyla nìjak vánì nemcná. Pznala jsem vak, e kdy mám Pána Jeíe v srdci, nemusím se bát smrti. On mi dpustil mé høíchy a díky Jeh bìti na køíi mhu být spravedlnìna a smíøena s nebeským Otcem. Vím, e kdyby mne Pán Bùh z tét zemì dvlal, pùjdu k Nìmu d Bíh králvství. Ná Bùh je skuteènì mcný a slavný Pán, který vyslýchá mdlitby. Vyplatí se mu dùvìøvat. Lydia Smilkvá Dst má na mé milsti, neb mc má v nemci se dknává (2 Kr 12, 9).
