I am looking forward to taking your requests to the Lord in faith and believing for a Mighty Breakthrough on your behalf.
Please be sure to lift this ministry up to the Lord as well. We are feeling a greater anointing than ever before - and for that we give Jesus all of the Praise.
He is doing phenomenal things through the messages that are sent out daily. Lives are being transformed...saints are being encouraged and strengthened in the faith...and needy souls are being touched by Him in a very tangible way. There is no price that can be laid on "a word in season" for those who are weary. What a marvelous thing it is to be in a situation where you are needing to hear from Jesus and then a message comes forth from this ministry with the very words of encouragement that you needed to hear. Or you may be feeling all alone and He speaks so clearly to you and lets you know that everything is going to be alright for He has everything under control.
This is happening every day through this ministry. People from all over the world are writing and letting me know how the Lord is ministering to them through the messages. I am so amazed and humbled by it all.
He is so wonderful - and so Faithful! Wouldn't you agree?
I ask you specifically to pray with us that God would "enlarge our coast" and give us more and more subscribers - people who are hungry for the Truth and willing to become all that He wants them to be - no matter what the cost.
And I thank you from the bottom of my heart for standing with us in your prayers.
I leave you with a quote that my husband Carl read to me this morning from a book entitled - Last Words -
"The records of the martyrs down the centuries, who overcame by the blood of the Lamb, the Word and their testimony and loved not their lives unto the death, need to be retold for an age like ours when it is far too easy to be a Christian. Under the Roman Empire, Christians were exterminated because they would not swear by the life of Caesar nor adore his image. During the fearful Inquisition of the Roman Catholic Church, thousands perished because they would not recognize the absolute authority of a pope. The Covenanters in Scotland suffered torture and death over the issue whether Christ alone or King Charles should be owned as head and lawgiver of the Church. One wonders whether the majority of professing Christians today have any deep convictions worth dying for...
These worthy sufferers for Christ's sake were trained in His school, and had learned how to condemn the world, mortify the flesh, bear the cross, and cheerfully sacrifice riches, honors, pleasures, liberty and life itself because of their adherence in the truth and honor of the Lord they loved...
To them it was easier to choose the greatest torture than the least sin. How shamed we are as we think of their sacrifice and compare it with our ease, self-satisfaction, pride and lifeless profession!"
Please read again the last two lines in the above quote. These martyrs chose "torture" rather than "the least sin" against our Holy God. What an indictment to the "church" of today who wants to excuse and justify sin in the believer's life!
When we look upon the present-day Christianity, is this all that we can see - a "lifeless profession"?
What about your life - is it a "lifeless profession" compared to that which these suffering saints enjoyed?

Have a GLORIOUS DAY in Jesus.
