October 20142014 THANKSGIVING CAMPMEETING
I hope you are making plans to be with us in the upcoming Thanksgiving Campmeeting. The dates are November 26-30. It’s going to be a little bit of Heaven on earth.
The way the Spirit of the Lord is moving in these camps, only He knows what is going to happen next. I’ve never seen anything like it! The freedom, the joy, the worship of the Lord - it’s like Heaven coming down.
So, if you can be with us and don’t (for whatever reason), you’re going to miss something. But all of you who will be with us - and we are expecting the building to be packed to capacity - I think it’s going to be blessings unparalleled. I’ll be looking for you.
WHAT WE SAID LAST MONTH
I thank the Lord for the many Word of the Cross churches which are beginning all around the world.
Many of these churches don’t have the facilities to provide suitable music for the praise and worship. So I would invite you - at no cost whatsoever - to tape our Sunday services off of television, and you may feel free to use that as a part of your worship service.
You can set up a screen, play the video, and your people can join in with the praise and worship, which many are already doing. And you are invited to do the same, if this is something that would meet your need. As stated, there is no charge.
As the Lord opens doors all over the world, including in the U.S.A., we are, by His grace, going through those doors.
Please note the following: there are several salient passages in the Word of God, that let us know we’re living in the last of the last days, in other words, the ending of the church age. This means that this world is facing the coming great tribulation, which will be worse than anything it has ever known in its history. Jesus said so (Mat. 24:21).
These signs of the last of the last days are:
Daniel’s prophecy of knowledge increasing in the last days (Dan. 12:4)
. Ninety-nine percent of all inventions have been brought about beginning at about the turn of the 20th century. What is now happening in this capacity tells us that it’s about over.
The outpouring of the Holy Spirit (Joel 2:28; Acts 2:16-17)
. Since approximately the turn of the 20th century, it is stated that approximately 500 million people have been baptized with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking with other tongues.
The restoration of Israel (Isa. 11:11-12)
. Israel, as most know, became a nation in 1948, after wandering as outcasts all over the world for some 1,900 years.
All of these things are symbols of the lateness of the hour in which we live. But there is one more that we need to consider:
The Message of the Cross (Mat. 24:14)
The Gospel of Jesus Christ began with the preaching of the Cross in the early church. That was the message then, and it is the message now. In other words, the church is being brought full circle. The only thing that can bring the church back to its rightful place — at least those who will believe - is the Message of the Cross. I definitely believe that this is a last day message.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP
I speak of your prayerful support, and I speak of your financial support. I plead with you that you pray for us daily, that we may be exactly what the Lord wants, and do exactly what the Lord wants done. So many of you are faithful each month to the work of God. What a blessing you are, and one day soon, in the portals of Glory, you will then see just how important all of this was and is.
We have excellent offers in this issue of The Evangelist. I would pray that you would take full advantage of them.
We do everything we can to give you material that is first rate in quality and first-rate in the presentation.
Incidentally, every one of you ought to avail yourself of getting each new book that we put out. You need to read what is said. It will most definitely help you in your Christian walk. Anything that does that is valuable indeed.
Once again, make plans to be with us in the upcoming Thanksgiving Campmeeting. It’s going to be a blockbuster.
