The Call Of God
As I have mentioned any number of times, and I will continue to mention it, the Lord called me for world evangelism when I was eight years of age. To be frank, I hardly knew what world evangelism was, limiting it to missionaries. Since then, that has changed by at least one hundred percent.
The change comes not only in the means by which the gospel is taken to the world, which we do by television, but really the change is every believer on the face of the earth also being called for world evangelism.
Some years ago, most believers had little means by which to obey that command of our Lord. But now, it is within the reach of every single believer.
We ask you for money to pay for the time that goes all over the world when it’s aired over television a few days later; think about that for a moment. We now reach well over half of this world, probably closer to two-thirds, and we’re adding areas all the time. In other words, we reach more people with one program for television than most of the churches in the United States and other parts of the world are able to reach. How we thank God for that privilege.
I Cannot Do It Without You
As I have said over and over again, and will continue to say, I cannot do this without you. It’s just that simple. And please understand, that is not a mere cliché, it is the truth. I cannot do this thing that God has called me to do—reach out to the entire world and give hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of people who watch this programming an opportunity to be saved. I have got to have your help. By that I mean your prayerful and financial help.
On the other side of that proverbial coin, what a privilege it is to do this. At times, we may think that the Lord requires too much. He really doesn’t require much of anything on our part. What little it is, it’s something that all of us can do.
And yet, the sad fact is, most of the money given for world evangelism goes for false doctrine or for whatever, but very little that is true and right. Now think about that for a moment.
How do you know that what is being preached out there is correct? Actually, you can tell more so now than ever before. Most of what is preached is shown over television, so you can see what the preacher is saying. Some small amount of it is true and right, but most of it isn’t. To be sure, it does no good whatsoever for a false message to go out. Remember this: Satan knows how to dress up his wares. He’s had many, many centuries worth of experience in deceiving people. So if you will ask the Lord to show you what is right and what is wrong, that He will do
We have done our best to reduce the sales pictured in this magazine as never before. In other words, we’ve cut every price to the bone. I would pray that you would take advantage of them.
Every believer should avail himself of the opportunity to learn all he can about the Bible. I would encourage you, and strongly so, to get every book we have. What you should do is to get at least one a month, and, considering the price that we have offered them, you can do more than that. It will take you just a couple of hours, if that, to read one of these books. You need to do it simply because you need to understand the Word of God in every capacity, and these books will help you. We have a book on just about every doctrine of the Bible. And if we don’t have it now, we will have it shortly. Actually, you should do the commentaries the same way—get at least one volume each month. That will build a Christian library every believer needs.
I will say again what I said a couple paragraphs back: Start your library now and take advantage of the offers we’ve made in this volume. You’ll be glad you did.
