MERRY CHRISTMAS
First of all, I want to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas, and, to be sure, if the Lord Jesus Christ lives within your heart and life, then it’s a good Christmas, whatever else there may be.

Incidentally, as it regards the Bibles, the books, the CD’s, etc., these would make some of the greatest Christmas gifts in the world. It would be something worthwhile, and at the same time, will keep Christ in Christmas. As it regards Bibles, music, books, etc., which we have, I think is some of the best in the world of its kind. Take full advantage of it, and you will not be disappointed and the recipients will not be disappointed as well.

LOOK WHAT THE LORD HAS DONE
By the time you read this, we should be covering at least two-thirds if not more of the U.S.A. with the SONLIFE BROADCASTING NETWORK. As well, we are subtitling into Russian to approximately 100 million people in that great country, plus other nations bordering Russia. As well, in Sao Paula, Brazil, we are either subtitling, or translating by voice into that vast area, of some 19 million homes, which translates into more than 50 million people. In fact, the Lord is opening up doors all over the world. By the time you read this, we should be airing in Hong Kong, China, plus Macau. There, we will be either doing voice or subtitling as well.

The Lord has told me to place the Programming in every city of the world that will accept it. And, of course, the Lord is working overtime to move upon these particular places to open the door wide. As a result, we are seeing doors opened in places where we have been told it’s impossible to broadcast the Gospel. We give the Lord all the praise and all the glory.

YOUR INVOLVEMENT
All of this, which the Lord has told us to do, and which we are trying with all of our strength to do, and as Paul said, “not to be disobedient to the Heavenly Vision,” we could not do any of it without you. Somehow I want the Lord to reveal to you just how important you are to this Work.

I personally believe that this is the greatest Move of God as it regards this present time. I believe THE MESSAGE OF THE CROSS is the Message of the hour, actually what the Holy Spirit is now saying to the Churches. So, I’m asking you, rather, I’m depending on you each month to do the very best you can do prayerfully and financially to help us with this worldwide task. What a privilege that we have! What an honor that we have been awarded by the Lord regarding the privilege of carrying out this Move of God all over the world.

ONE MORE WORD
We have more than 30,000 people who are members of FAMILY WORSHIP CENTER MEDIA CHURCH. To be sure, we consider you the strength of this Work for God. We add over 100 names every week, and these names mean so very, very much to us.

There’s only one requirement to join, and that is to be “Born-Again.” But yet, as you well know, it takes money to bring the Services to you, and the entirety of the programming all over the world, right into your home, your heart, and your life. So, we ask that you would be faithful each month as the Lord enables you to do so, in helping to support this Work. In other words, we ask you to pay your tithes. So many people ask, “Where should I pay my tithe?” The answer is really very simple.

Each Believer is to support that which feeds his heart and life. Thank you so very much for being faithful. Actually, this is all that we will say about it. We will not write you letters and tell you that you should give so much or whatever the case might be. We say these words in THE EVANGELIST Magazine, and we leave it up to the Lord and you as to what you can do each month.

I WILL OPEN THE DOOR WIDE
If I remember correctly it was September of 2010 and I had just got home from the office, and went to the Lord almost immediately in prayer. That particular day the Lord Moved mightily upon me and this is what He said to me,
“The enemy tried to close the door to this Ministry in the 1990’s, but I kept it open about 10 percent by comparison to what it had been. But I am now ready to open it wide.”
And that’s exactly what the Lord has done and is doing. He is opening that door wide, and please understand, doors that God opens man cannot close. And doors that He does close, man cannot open. From that time I have watched the Lord do exactly what He said He would do. He has opened, and is opening these doors wide all over the world. And as I’ve already stated, you are an integral part of what the Lord is doing. What you’re doing is not by chance, neither is it by whim, but it is the Call of God on your life, and you can be very proud in the sight of the Lord that you have a part in world Evangelism, perhaps as no one else before you.

Once again from the entire Swaggart family, the staff of Family Worship Center, and SonLife Broadcasting Network, to you and yours, a very Merry Christmas.
