February 2015GREAT OFFERS
AS I’M SURE YOU’VE
noticed by now, we have, we think, the greatest offers we’ve ever made in this particular issue of The Evangelist. I would pray that you would take full advantage because every one of them is chock-full of blessing and the Word of God. To be sure, anything that will help one to learn more about the Word of God is valuable indeed, and to be sure, these books will do just that! As well, the music is an experience in worship, and we give the Lord all the praise and all the glory.
Incidentally, every combo that we put out, whatever it is, is because the Spirit of God has moved in a phenomenal way in one or more of the songs, especially the lead song. In other words, I’ll guarantee you that you will be blessed. That’s the reason that I would urge you to take advantage of these most excellent offers.
A lady wrote me the other day saying, “Brother Swaggart, the material we get from your office is not only extremely valuable content wise, but, as well, the material is always first-rate. In other words, the Bibles, the books, the CDs, etc., all and without exception are first-rate quality as it regards production, etc.”
I thank the Lord for that testimony. We strive to give the people the very best. It’s for the work of the Lord, so both the quality of the material and the content should be the best.
We just went on in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, which covers nearly 1 million homes. As well, there is Seattle, Washington, with approximately 1.25 million homes. Also, we should be airing in Nashville, Tennessee, which is nearly 1 million homes. So, pray that the Lord will work mightily regarding His Word going out in these particular places. We’ve also just gone on a small cable system in Nigeria in the great continent of Africa. You can look elsewhere in this magazine and get the exact channel number, etc.
The dates are April 1 - 5, 2015. You don't want to miss it!
PRAY FOR US
I’m asking each of you, please, to keep us before the Lord in prayer, even on a daily basis. This means so much to us, and it matters very, very much. God answers prayer, and your intercession before the Lord on our behalf will enable us to do a better job all over the world.
Think about this: If they so desire, some 2 billion people can tune in the SonLife Broadcasting Network. How we thank God for this privilege and opportunity. However, we will not rest until every door that God opens around this world will be open to us. We feel that we have a mandate from the Lord that we’ve got to take this Message of
the Cross to the entirety of the planet.
As well, we need the financial help of all of you to get this thing done, and I want to say a little more about that, please!
As many, if not most of you, know, for the last several months, we have not raised the budget as it regards television airtime. We have had a shortfall of anywhere from $400,000 to $800,000. However, the thing that I want to say to you is that we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Also, I want to say that every single time, these funds were made up during the month, with every need being met. How we thank the Lord and you for that.
However, at the same time, I know it would be God’s will for the funds that we need to be raised each and every month. As I’ve said several times over television, people write us constantly saying, “Brother Swaggart, where do I pay my tithe?”
The answer to that is very simple and easy. Every believer should pay his or her tithe to where he is being fed. That which blesses you, instructs you, and helps you - I’m speaking about learning the Word of God to a greater degree - is where you owe your support, wherever that is.
THE READ-N-GROW PICTURE BIBLE
It contains more than 1,800 drawings, starting with Genesis 1:1 and going through Revelation 22:21. In other words, it covers the entirety of the Bible in illustration form.
If you have a little son or daughter, grandsons or granddaughters, great grandsons or great granddaughters, nieces or nephews, or whomever as it regards young teenagers or preteens, you must get them a copy of the Read-N-Grow Picture Bible. You’ll regret it if you don’t do it. We’ve cut the price down as much as we can, and if you would get as many as 12, which is a case, the price is cut down even more. So, whoever holds this magazine, you must take advantage of this Bible that’s designed especially for children. If you’ll start them out on the Word of God, they’ll never depart from it.
BIBLES FOR PASTORS
You have helped put nearly 300,000 Bibles into the hands of pastors all over the world. Most of these pastors would not be financially able to buy one of these Bibles. The testimonies that we get into this office from preachers — and I speak of those from Central America, South America, India, Russia, Africa, and, in fact, all over the world - tell us how much this Bible is a blessing and help to them. When you influence a preacher in this capacity, you also influence the entirety of his congregation.
I do not personally think there is any mission’s work in the world today that can equal this of which I speak. As well, I do not think there is any study Bible in the world that will open up the Scriptures as much as The Expositor’s Study Bible. Preacher after preacher, plus the laity, as well, tell us, “Brother Swaggart, when I started studying it, I couldn’t put it down.” They will go on to say, “The notes make the text come alive.” Yes, it does! That’s the reason the Holy Spirit helped us to design it so.
Thank you so very, very much for your help in this. Thank you for being a part of what God is doing all over the world.
