As you hold this magazine in your hand, we should be going into Iran with the SonLife Broadcasting Network translated into Persian. Yes, I said translated into Persian. Also, there are several other countries where Persian is spoken, or it is their second language.
As well, part of the programming of the network is also going into Brazil translated into Portuguese, which is, of course, the national language of Brazil. Our plans are that we will shortly be translating the entirety of the programming into Portuguese and airing 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It is the same with Persian. We are presently airing the Sunday morning service, as well as the Wednesday night Bible study, from Family Worship Center. A Study In The Word, which comes on every day, is also translated. Be praying that the Lord will mightily use this programming to His glory in these particular countries.
I pray that you will take advantage of these most excellent offers in the magazine (The Evangelist)
this month. Actually, they are the greatest we’ve ever had. I strongly urge you to avail yourself of the opportunity of getting every new book that we put out. Anything that will help you to understand the Message of the Cross a little bit better is valuable indeed! This is the single most important material on the face of the earth, and I’m not speaking of our ability or the lack thereof to deliver it, but the material itself. That being the case, you should want to know every single thing about it that you can know. To be sure, these books will help you to do just that. Considering that we have cut the price to the bone, I pray that you will take full advantage.
FAMILY WORSHIP CENTER MEDIA CHURCH MEMBERS
How so happy we are to have you! How so much we thank you for being a blessing to the entirety of the world. The only requirement for joining Family Worship Center Media Church is to be born again. It doesn’t cost money, even though we do urge you to support the work as the Lord helps you to do so. As is obvious, our coming into your home, your heart, and your life, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, costs money. So, we pray that you will support the work as you can, and we guarantee the blessings of the Lord.
To become a part of Family Worship Center Media Church, all you have to do is call the office or drop us a note and tell us that you want to be a part of this which the Lord is doing. It doesn’t matter who you are, what country you live in, or whatever. If you love the Lord and, as stated, are born again, you are welcome.
Yes, I said Christmas. It will be here before you know it, and some of the greatest gifts that you could ever give anyone would be one of the Expositor’s Study Bibles, some of our music, etc. If you want something that pertains to the Word of God - whether books, commentaries, or music - you need not go any further. So, get some Christmas shopping done early, and you’ll be glad you did.
At the time you hold this magazine in your hands, we have given to pastors all over the world more than 250,000 copies of The Expositor’s Study Bible. This is, I believe, one of the greatest missions’ works in the world today, for which we give the Lord all the praise and glory.
However, at the same time, I want to thank you from the deep of my heart for having made this possible. Most of these pastors could not afford one of these Bibles if it was offered to them, but the Lord has told us to give these Bibles to these pastors, irrespective as to whom they may be. In other words, we do not discriminate.
To be sure, The Expositor’s Study Bible will hold to true doctrine. As it regards the Gospel of Jesus Christ, too often, that which comes from America is not what it ought to be. In other words, some of it is false. The notes in our Bible are completely orthodox. In other words, it’s the Word of God.
So, thank you so very, very much for helping to make this possible, for no matter what the Lord has called us to do, without you, we simply could not do it.
AND INCIDENTALLY, THANK YOU …
I’m speaking to all of you who help support this work, and, of course, I’m speaking of the SonLife Broadcasting Network. Do you realize that at this moment, we are in 72 million homes in the United States 24 hours a day, seven days a week? As well, we are in more than 150 million homes in foreign countries. Besides all of that, we have the Internet, which is picked up all over the world. In other words, over 1 billion homes can get the programming if they so desire.
I definitely believe the following: the Message of the Cross is what I believe the Holy Spirit is saying to the modern church. This is the greatest Word given by the Holy Spirit to believers. It is imperative that all be able to hear. In fact, I believe this Message of the Cross is one of the last day advents.
Biblically they are:
The restoration of Israel, which began in 1948 (Isa. 11:11-12).
The fulfillment of the prophecy of Daniel of knowledge being increased in the last days (Dan. 12:4).
The outpouring of the Holy Spirit, which actually began at the turn of the 20th century.
From that time, it is believed that some 500 million believers have been baptized with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking with other tongues (Acts 2:17-18).
The Message of the Cross. The church began with this message under Paul, and it’s going out with this message, as well, I do believe. Jesus said, “And this Gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come” (Mat. 24:14).
Again, thank you so much for helping make this possible.
