88 MILLION HOMES
We’re speaking of the U.S.A.
As you’ve probably heard me say in the past, there are 115 million homes in America which have a television set. We will not rest until we are in all of these homes.
I believe the Holy Spirit insists that every person in the world have the opportunity to hear the gospel, whether they accept it or not. That is what is creating the urgency in my heart. And as well, we cover presently nearly 2 billion people in other countries of the world. In other words, that many people can get SonLife Broadcasting if they so desire, and I should say, if they have the Internet.
You are a part of this worldwide effort, and I do believe that it is the single most important thing on the face of the earth today. No, I’m not speaking of us, but the message that we are giving to the world. It is more important than anything else, and that would go for any preacher of the gospel who is truly preaching the Word of God.
How so much I thank all of you for the cards, the letters, the phone calls, etc., that we received regarding my 82nd birthday. I’ve never felt better in my life, physically speaking, and I can say the same spiritually as well. And of course, we give the Lord all the praise and all the glory for that, for He alone is able to do these things.
I have asked Him for enough years left for both Frances and me, to finish this course, and I am speaking of the greatest move of God the world has ever known. I believe we are on the threshold of such.
I hope you are making your plans, that is if it’s possible, to be with us in the Resurrection Campmeeting on April 12-16. It’s going to be a blockbuster, and if it’s at all possible for you to be here, it will be well worth your while.
Some of the finest worship music and singing in the world, and some of the best preaching and teaching, we feel, is on the face of the earth. In other words, I believe as the song says, “You won’t leave here like you came, in Jesus’ name.”
WORLD EVANGELISM BIBLE COLLEGE
Dr. Don Paul Gray, who helped start the school at the beginning, has just come back to help Loren push this Bible college to higher heights than it has previously known. We believe that this school can help train pastors, or anyone who desires to know and learn the Word of God. In other words, we have big plans for the Bible college. We’re bringing on board the people who can get this thing done by the help and grace of God, and we believe that what we are doing in this respect is definitely guided and led by the Holy Spirit.
We have some of the greatest facilities in the world respecting a Bible college, and we have some of the greatest teachers—men and women, incidentally, who have many, many years of experience—who can teach that which needs to be taught.
To be frank, there aren’t many Bible colleges left in America at this time. That’s a shame, but it happens to be the truth. There are two directions in which I feel the Holy Spirit at this time desires that we go. They are:
So, if you are interested in the upcoming semester, why don’t you give us a call? The number to World Evangelism Bible College is (225) 768-3890.
- First of all, we want to train preachers, and we believe the Lord has given and is giving us the means to get this done.
- Second, if you do not feel that there is a call for ministry in your life, but yet you want to learn the Word of God, this is the place for you. In fact, if every believer would get a year or two of Bible education under his or her proverbial belt, to be sure, it would be the greatest thing that a believer could do, irrespective as to what direction that person may take as it regards what one does with his or her life. That’s what we desire to do: to educate you in the Word of God, and there is nothing—and I mean nothing—more important than that.
As I have done in the past and will continue to do, I want to encourage each and every one of you to get each and every book that we put out. I think it will help you to learn certain segments of the Word of God, and especially the Message of the Cross, as nothing that you have read previously. The books are easy to read, and they contain truths that are not found anywhere else. So, every time we offer a new book, whatever you do, get a copy and read it. You’ll be more knowledgeable in the Word of God in respect to this, and it will open up great truths in the Word, to help you live the life you ought to live. And there is nothing more important than that.
THE GREAT GRANDKIDS
The other day, Abby, who was 5 years old at the time, got into a tussle with her 3-year-old sister, Caroline. They had kind of gotten mad at each other, and were calling each other names. Suddenly, Abby backed up and said to her baby sister, “What’s wrong with you is, you don’t have the fruit of the Spirit.”
Now I don’t know how much a 5-year-old or a 3-year-old knows about the fruit of the Spirit, but whether Caroline understood anything about it or not, and of course at 3 years old she didn’t, but still, Abby was right. Solomon said, “Raise them in the way they ought to go, and when they get older, they will not depart from it.”
We have been on channel 25 over the Comcast network in Atlanta, Georgia, but have changed to Channel 28. So, if you’ve already found us, please tell others.
FAMILY WORSHIP CENTER MEDIA CHURCH
We have approximately 100 people a month who join Family Worship Center Media Church, from all over the world, and how so happy we are to have you. First of all, what does Family Worship Center Media Church mean?
Of course, it costs money, and quite a bit of it, to come into your home, your heart, and life 24 hours a day, seven days a week. So we do encourage you to pay your tithe. But we leave that between you and the Lord. In other words, you’ll never get a letter from us maligning you for not giving so much money, etc. As I’ve already stated, that’s between you and the Lord, even though we do urge you, of course, to support the ministry. And thank God for the many who do.
- It means that there are people all over the world who believe in our mission. In other words, you believe that what we are doing is biblical and of the Lord, and you want to be a part of it.
- Second, there’s only one requirement to join, and that is to be born again.
- As well, there are no other ramifications. In other words, you don’t have to pay money to be a part of it; you don’t have to really do anything except give us your prayers.
Our mission is the world, yes the entirety of the world, and if you want to be a part of it, just let us know in the next share-a-thon, and we’ll take care of it. Or if you so desire, you can call the office. The number is (800) 288-8350.
We love every one of you, and God bless you supremely,
