HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
Eighty-two! Some days I feel 52 and some days 102. I seriously thank the Lord so very, very much; I’ve never felt better in my life, and I give the Lord all of the praise and all of the glory.
It’s already starting out as a great year, and, please believe me, I think it’s going to be the best yet. The Lord, I believe, has promised me some things that have not yet come to fruition, but, most definitely, they shall. Anything the Lord says that He will do, that He will do.
A few weeks ago, we went on television in Tanzania in East Africa, as well as in Madagascar—an island off the coast of East Africa . In Australia, we’re on Foxtel, covering some 3 million households, and we’re also covering the island of Puerto Rico. Pray that the Lord will give us a great harvest of souls.
As well, we have gone on several more stations on what we refer to as “over-the-air.”
At the present time, we are in some 87 million homes in the U.S.A., and nearly 200 million in foreign countries. Everyone has the right to hear the gospel. Whether they accept it or not is something else, but I think the Holy Spirit demands that they at least have the opportunity. And, thanks to you, the Lord is giving that opportunity to millions more each month.
LET ME MENTION THIS TO YOU
I would urge you, even as I have in the past, to secure for yourself every single book that we put out. As well, you should read them. That which the Lord has done and is doing, and I speak of the Message of the Cross, is that which every believer should know about this particular subject—all that is possible to know. That’s how important it is. We cut the price to the bone regarding every book that’s released to make it possible for more people to get a copy. Please believe me, the Message of the Cross is the message of the hour. In other words, it is what the Holy Spirit is presently saying to the churches. That being the case, you ought to want to know everything about it that you can.
THE UPCOMING CAMPMEETING
The dates for our 2017 Resurrection Campmeeting are April 12-16.
A man told me the other day, “Brother Swaggart, I watch every service from Family Worship Center by television; however, being here at Family Worship Center in person, and for the first time, there is no comparison.” In other words, as wonderful as it is over television, it is twice as good in person. We think that you will feel that way also. So, if it’s at all possible, make your plans to be with us for the Resurrection Campmeeting. It’s going to be, I think, the best yet, so do everything possible to be with us. You won’t regret it.
DONNIE’S AND GABE’S RALLIES
These rallies have only one service—the Friday night that’s scheduled. So, whatever you do, you ought to make your plans to be there. There’s nothing like them. The music, the singing, the worship, the preaching, the moving of the Holy Spirit—it’s something that’s a little bit of heaven. So, if you are within driving distance, you ought to make your plans when Donnie or Gabe come to your area. I promise you one thing, you won’t regret going, and you will be blessed. Here’s a list of some of their upcoming rallies:

THE LORD IS GIVING AMERICA ONE MORE CHANCE
That I believe! This last election was, I think, a miracle from God. How we give the Lord the praise and the glory. And yet, we must take advantage of what the Lord is doing. Satan made a push for this country and almost succeeded. Thank God there are enough praying people in this nation who were able to turn back the tides of darkness. And whenever the Lord allows such to happen, He is going to do something great. I believe it is just around the corner. And by that, I’m speaking of a harvest of souls such as this nation or the world has never seen before. He still means what He says: “If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (II Chron. 7:14).
In an interview a short time back, President Trump was asked the question as to the preachers he watches over television, if any. He named three, and we were one of them. I know that now he is busier than ever; however, I would pray that he would take time to continue to hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches, and of course I’m speaking of the Message of the Cross. I believe that President Trump has a heart that reaches out toward God. So let’s pray for him, even on a daily basis, which is what the Scripture commands us to do.
I’M ASKING THIS OF YOU
First and foremost, I’m asking each of you to pray for us, even on a daily basis. The battle is a spiritual battle, but it flows over into every other aspect of life and living. Pray, as Paul said, that the gospel will have free course.
Second, I would ask that every one of you who is blessed by SonLife Broadcasting Network will set aside something each month to help us with the expenses. Many of you do that, for which we are so very, very thankful. I’m asking that all of you who are blessed by this ministry would support it.
If you’ll put God first, I promise you, that He will put you first also. Thank you again, and we love every one of you.
P.S. “I will bless the Lord at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth” (Ps. 34:1).
