October Love E-Letter 2017

A WISE WOMAN

 

            The past few months Mylon and I have been teaching on Holy Matrimony and this month Mylon as asked me to minister to the wives. There is such dishonor in our society today for the marriage union. God, who is the Creator of the marriage covenant said that it should be “esteemed worthy, precious, and especially dear.” (Heb. 13:4) We must value holy things in order for there to be any growth. For many years I thought it was ok to “freak out” because I did not value peace. We can get to heaven “freaking out” but that wrong way of thinking began to cause problems in our marriage and ministry. To have something different, you must want something different. So when I decided I wanted a different life, God began to show me in His Word that He has called and anointed me to LIVE 24/7 at PEACE. When I obeyed His instructions, they set me free to enjoy life at a level that I did not know was possible! That is exactly what God wants to do for every marriage. He is ready to make our home on Earth as it is in heaven! 

 

Every wise woman builds her house, but the foolish one tears it down with her own hands.”
Proverbs 14:1
 

            In the verse above, please notice that it is the woman God gives the responsibility to build her home. He doesn’t even mention men here! We live in a culture where the motto of the day is “Girl Power.” God, Who is the ultimate “equal rights” in Christ advocate, has given women a powerful place. Based on the Lexical definitions of the words above, it would read: “A woman who lives her life according to God’s principles, increases, strengthens, establishes and preserves her family, household and dwelling place. BUT the woman who revolts and openly renounces God’s Law to which she owes allegiance and chooses to willfully violate that law, pulls down, destroys and utterly ruins her family by her own power and strength.” She can’t blame her husband for this one. Girls, we got the power! Are we going to use the anointing to build our home or tear it down? How does a wise woman build her house? By OBEDIENCE!

 

God’s instructions to wives are reiterated in three different Epistles under the New Covenant of GRACE. Ephesians 5:21-24 says, “Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. For wives, this means submit to your husbands as (a service) to the Lord. 

For a husband is the HEAD of his wife as Christ is the head of the church…. As the church submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your husbands in everything.” Paul, the apostle of GRACE, begins by addressing the church body that we should submit one to another. What follows dispels any myth that leadership in the marriage is 50/50. Wives are specifically instructed to submit to their husbands in everything, NOT to men in general! The definition of SUBMIT is: “To yield, surrender to the power, will or authority of another; to yield without murmuring.” Please understand that submission is not agreement. Agreement means “of the same opinion.” Submission only begins when we disagree with our husbands but make the choice to yield to their leadership AND do it with a good attitude. I’m still working on that one, HA!

 

Another meaning of submission in I Peter 3:1 is to adapt yourselves to them.” In the early years of our marriage, I kept trying to get Mylon to adapt to what I wanted. But God called wives to adapt to the husband’s needs, NOT the other way around. I was constantly contending for control and negotiating for leadership. The breakthrough came when I saw that submitting to Mylon as God’s appointed head and giving him the final say, is a service to The Lord. For example, if someone were to ask me, “Christi, are you submitted to God?’ Boy, I would have fought them over that one, fervently contending that Jesus is my Lord and Master. Then if they asked, “Are you submitted to Mylon?’ I would have answered, “Well, you don’t understand” followed by a whole bunch of excuses. In prayer one day, The Lord mercifully revealed His Word to me in a way that forever changed our marriage. He said, “Christi, you can’t BE submitted to Me and NOT BE submitted to Mylon because I am The One Who told you to do it!”  Wives, please understand that in the same way we submit to Jesus, we will submit to our husband. If we are truly submitted to our Lord Jesus in everything, then we will submit to our husbands in everything. Please let me clarify that Mylon does not control or dominate me. He leads by example and continually keeps the Word of God as The Standard in our home. As far as I’m concerned, he’s pretty close to perfect! I chose obedience that day in prayer and submitted to the Word. From that moment of decision, God’s grace showed up and enabled me to do as a wife what I had not been able to do before! Glory to God, today I can testify that we have Holy Matrimony!  

 

            We would love the opportunity to encourage you and your family in person. Check our itinerary at www.mylon.org. If you are unable to attend, don’t forget that many church services are LIVE streamed. As you sow your precious seed this month, be encouraged that your seed is sending us to the masses through our soon to be broadcast TV ministry of “On the Road to Freedom!” What you make happen for others, God will make happen for you! Get ready for HEAVEN ON EARTH at your house!

 

            We have God’s BEST in TEAM MYLON!

             Mylon & Christi

September Love Letter 2017

September Love Letter 2017

 

HOLY MATRIMONY | Love Gives

 

      As you know, we began a series last month titled, Holy Matrimony. Because of the evil assault we have witnessed on marriages in the Body of Christ, Christi and I felt compelled to share with you some of our personal testimony. If you are single and believing for a mate, these truths are also essential for you to learn for your future relationship. Years ago, The Lord spoke to me, Spiritual maturity can be seen in someone’s life by how many long term relationships they have. The reason is because in order to maintain long term relationships, we must be quick to forgive and refuse to be offended. That’s LOVE, which is our highest call as Christians. (I Cor. 14:1) Love is also the husband’s highest call before God:

 

Husbands, LOVE your wives, as Christ loved the church and GAVE Himself up for her, So that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the Word…Even so husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself. For no man ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and carefully protects and cherishes it, as Christ does the church…” Ephesians 5:25-29 (AMPC)

 

       Please notice that husbands are to LOVE by GIVING their lives for their wives as Christ gave His life for us. Contrary to popular belief, Love (especially within the marriage covenant) is not 50/50. Remember GOD IS LOVE. He is our perfect example. For God SO LOVED that He GAVE His highest and best in Jesus. He gave 100% “while we were yet sinners” and we could give nothing in return. LOVE GIVES with ‘no strings attached!’ When we gave our lives to Christ, He “shed His Love abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit” so that we could give His Love to others. Please understand that we will reap what we sow. (Gal. 6:7) For example, the reason I can cheerfully wait in the ladies shoe department while Christi shops is because I am sowing! I am sowing time, attitude and patience. I don’t want her on the back of my Harley, riding thousands of miles and complaining. Another example is when Christi decided to learn how to cook, I told her I would help by doing the dishes. The harvest I have reaped is that she now enjoys Harley riding as much as I do AND she cooks delicious meals for us that I prefer to restaurants! You reap what you sow, Praise God! 

 

       In order to obey God’s next instruction to wash our wives in the water of the Word, every day I make the time to lead us in prayer. At our house, we don’t let the world into our lives until we both have had our quiet time with the Lord (& our coffee!) We also take the time to receive the Word together in church, in conferences or watching our favorite teachers on TV and the internet. One of our favorite things to do as a couple is spend time together sharing the revelation God gives us in His Word and praying in agreement concerning it!

 

       Husbands, please remember that your wife is God’s daughter. He takes how we treat His daughter very seriously. He says in 1 Peter 3:7, “In the same way, you husbands must give honor to your wives. Treat your wife with understanding as you live together. She may be (physically) weaker than you are, but she is your equal partner in God’s gift of new life. Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered.” If we don’t Love our wives the way God instructed us to, it will hinder our prayers because Love is what causes our faith to work. (Gal. 5:6) We are also to live with understanding of our wives. With Christi, if I know she is having a difficult day and needs encouragement, I make an effort to speak words of love to her. If we sow words of love, we will reap lovingkindness from our mate. Because I also know she thinks “chocolate chip cookies make everything better,” then sometimes, we get cookies too! We both are looking for ways each day to GIVE to one another, preferring one another’s needs over our own.  

 

       There are many reading this today and your marriage is at a dangerous crossroads. The future of your life, marriage and family could go either way depending on what you choose. I will admit there was a time early in our marriage when we were at a crossroads and it could have gone either way. By the grace of God, we both chose to submit to His Word and obey His instructions. Please let me encourage you to read those instructions and promises to each other out loud and then take communion over it. Christi and I have never had God not show up and grant us wisdom and strength to overcome. In other words, we had a breakthrough! 

 

       We’d love the opportunity to help you receive your breakthrough. Please check our itinerary at www.mylon.org and come see us! Just as we reap what we sow in our relationships, we will also reap what we sow financially into the Kingdom. II Corinthians 9:6 promises that “If we sow (give) sparingly, we will reap sparingly. If we sow generously, we will reap generously.” Your generous giving is helping us pay for TV equipment and filming/editing costs of our new TV show, “On the Road to Freedom!” You can expect a generous HARVEST is on its way!

 

We honor and appreciate you!

Mylon & Christi

 

 P. S. Through TV and the internet, we are literally taking this message of LOVE GIVES around the world! Thank you for helping us to let people know how much God loves them. Don’t forget to receive encouragement yourself from our FREE resources at www.mylon.org. We are always looking for ways to be a big blessing to you!

August Love E-Letter

August Love E-Letter

 HOLY MATRIMONY

 

 “Let marriage be held in honor (esteemed worthy, precious, of great price, and especially dear) in all things.” Hebrews 13:4
 

There is a great attack against marriage in our culture today. Where there is no honor but in fact, a blatant disregard for the institution of marriage as a worthy endeavor. The Lord recently instructed us to teach on the difference between Holy Matrimony and marriage. There is a difference! Anytime that word HOLY is mentioned that means God is involved. Over the next few months, we will be sharing our testimony with you concerning the principles we have learned from God’s Word that have resulted in us enjoying Holy Matrimony.

 

God IS good and He is the architect of Holy Matrimony. The only way we are going to have a GOOD MARRIAGE is with God in control! For example, Christi and I are no longer fighting for the last word, we have both made the absolute commitment that The Word of God is The Final Authority in our home. We’re not negotiating for control, the Holy Spirit is in control at our house. I cannot overemphasize this truth. It is the key to a successful marriage and life…THE WORD OF GOD IS THE FINAL AUTHORITY IN OUR HOME! Whatever the Word says, easy or challenging, is THE TRUTH. We have both entered covenant (a decision from which there is no return) with God concerning His Word that we will “Choose Life” through submission and OBEDIENCE. (Deut. 30:19)

 

Therefore, our relationship with Jesus must be our first commitment because obedience is the outward demonstration of a heart in love with Him. (John 14:15) Jesus is our First Love. Christi and I both loved Jesus before we loved each other. GOD IS LOVE and understanding and sharing His Love is what makes us a good husband/wife. Jesus also taught in Matthew 10:37-38 that we are not to love or take more pleasure in our family (defined as: mother or father, son or daughter) more than we do Him. In other words, our chief commitment again is to our First Love. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says that God has placed eternal purpose in you that “nothing under the sun (a successful career, marriage or money) but God alone can satisfy.” Our mates do not and cannot complete us. We are complete in Him! (Col 2:10)

 

After our relationship with Jesus, according to the Word, the bond between husband and wife supersedes all other relationships. Ephesians 5:31-32 says, “a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.’ This is a great mystery, but it is an illustration of the way Christ and the church are one.According to these verses, we can observe the marriage union, how one treats their husband/wife and know their commitment to Christ, wow! We need to ask ourselves this tough question-

 

When others observe how we treat and speak to our mate, are they seeing a representation of our honor and love for Jesus

We understand this teaching is not ‘baby food.’ We are serving up ‘meat and potatoes’ when we discuss God’s instructions for Holy Matrimony. And the only way to get from here to there is to deny ourselves. For marriage to truly be a reflection of Christ and the Church, all selfishness, self-worth and self-respect which are all rooted in pride must be crucified! In Luke 9:23 Jesus said, “If any person wills to come after Me, let him deny himself [disown himself, forget, lose sight of himself and his own interests…] and take up his cross daily and follow Me…” We must get our minds off ourselves (our needs and wants) and quit focusing on what our spouse is or isn’t doing for us. Your First Love, Jesus, is the only one who can meet every need. It’s time to GROW UP so we are not so needy, insecure and selfish. When we grow up, we aren’t takers anymore, we become GIVERS! Christi and I can testify that when we made the decision to grow up and started looking for ways to out-give each other, it became heaven on earth at our house!!

 

Giving is the highest expression of LOVE. John 3:16 says, “For God SO LOVED the world THAT HE GAVE.” As you give this month, do so motivated by your love for The Lord and His people. You can see for yourself at www.mylon.org how we are taking this message of Love to the world through the internet, TV ministry, books, ministry events, prisons, etc. When you sow with the pure motive of love, get ready…LOVE that conquers ALL is going to be show up and prove again how much He Loves You! 

 

We love and appreciate you!

Mylon & Christi

 

P.S. TV Update: We are continuing to format our new TV show and coming up with ideas for editing that have never been done before! We will keep you informed along the way. Just know that your agreement in prayer and faithful giving are providing for the equipment, filming and editing of “On the Road to Freedom” and will soon reach the world with the Love of God!

                                                            GOD IS HONEST

 

            This statement may seem like a given with those who call themselves Christians but so many make choices every day that prove they trust themselves (their intellect, their understanding) more than they trust God. I know this because I was one of them! I grew up in church, heard a lot about God and “got saved” hundreds of times! Later, when I was living the rock and roll lifestyle, I always believed there was a God and that Jesus was His Son. But there is a huge difference between believing there is a God and believing God. I feared God because I grew up hearing “hell, fire and brimstone” preaching. But I didn’t trust Him because I didn’t know how good He is. Understanding the goodness of God is the foundation for faith. God is not out to get us, He’s out to bless us!  

 

       Hebrews 11:1 says, “Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Faith is believing that God is honest even though the circumstances (what we see and perceive in the natural) may disagree. II Corinthians 5:7 says, “For we live by faith, not by sight.” There are only two ways to live: BY FAITH OR BY SIGHT. Sight is the natural way. Faith is the supernatural way. Please understand that we CHOOSE the quality of our life. Deuteronomy 30:19 says that God has set before us, “Life and death. The Blessing and the curse; therefore, CHOOSE LIFE!” Every choice determines whether we choose life–obedience to His Word that results in Blessing or death–ignoring His commands in His Word and opening the door for the enemy to “steal, kill and destroy.”

 

      Choosing to live by faith means we have crossed the line and we believe that GOD IS HONEST. God has integrity and whatever He says is the truth. The original sin in the Garden of Eden was over believing God. God instructed Adam and Eve in Genesis 3:2-4, that they could eat the fruit from all the trees in the Garden, “Except the fruit from the tree which is in the middle of the garden. God has said, ‘you shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.’ But the serpent said to the woman, ‘you shall not surely die…” Eve chose to believe Satan, the liar, instead of God. Adam followed and sin was introduced into the earth. Today, the issue is still the same. The solution to every problem in the earth is: BELIEVING GOD!

 

       In Matthew 9:28-29 “two blind men came…and Jesus said to them, Do you believe that I am able to do this? They said to Him, Yes, Lord. Then He touched their eyes, saying, According to YOUR faith…be it done to you.” Jesus did not say they would receive their miracle according to their need or their sincerity, He said it was according to their faith! The Good News is faith is easy to get: “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.” When we spend time in personal study of the Word, receive from our pastor and other anointed teachers, our faith will grow as we receive revelation of The Truth. The Truth can change the facts! But the facts will never make God a liar. GOD IS HONEST!

 

       One of the ways we prove to God that we trust Him is in our giving. He said in Malachi 3:10, “Prove Me now by it, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.” When we give, we are CHOOSING TO BELIEVE that God will pour out an abundance of Blessing, so much that we have to give even more away! Please be encouraged today that God will fix anything we give Him total control of: our marriage, family, health, finances. He has proven to me and Christi that the more we surrender to His will (which is His Word) the better our lives get!!

 

We love and value you!

Mylon & Christi 

 

P.S. We’d love to meet you and have the opportunity to teach you the Word of Faith. Please check our itinerary for upcoming events. If we are not coming to your area, please check out our latest Faith Resources available at www.mylon.org. Thank you again for all you give in prayer and finances to help us tell the world that GOD IS GOOD and He loves to prove it!

“This is the Lords doing and it is marvelous in our eyes!” Psalm 118:23

 

It was such a dream come true to begin filming our first TV show, “On the Road to Freedom” last month. After filming several broadcasts on our testimony, we were reminded again of how faithful the Lord has been to us all these years and the lives we have had the honor of ministering to. We thought it would be a blessing to you too! Here are a few testimonies from Church on the Run Viewers: 

 

Today’s teaching is just what I needed. I’m holding on to Jesus and He is holding me tightly. Praise God!” Sandy, Internet

 

“I look forward to seeing this every day!Kenny, Internet

 

“Thank you for your honest, encouragement and coolness too in keeping it real. I will share this.” Brian, Internet 

 

“As usual, exactly the right Word, exactly when I need it. Thanks!” Holly, Internet

 

“This message is so comforting and so needed! It’s a blessing to me how real and so down to earth you both are in spreading God’s word and encouragement around the world! Love you both!” Norma, Internet  

 

Perfect Timing, I needed that right now.” Tim, Internet

 

If you haven’t already, check out CHURCH ON THE RUN at www.mylon.org. We believe it will be “the right word at the right moment” (Prov. 15:23) Here’s a few more powerful testimonies of how Mylon and Broken Heart impacted lives for the Kingdom:

 

I got born again at a Mylon and Broken Heart concert. His music not only changed my life, it drew me into a deeper relationship with the Lord. Today, I am a minister for the Lord, still on fire for Christ.” Dr. Kyle, Internet

 

“I gave my life to Christ at a Mylon & Broken Heart concert. The presence of God was tangible at that concert and I remember looking across a crowd of over 10 thousand people and seeing their hands raised toward heaven, then hearing God call me to him.” Terry, AL

 

“In 1987, When Mylon and the band came onstage I was blown away. Then he preached and said things I had never heard a preacher say. And for the first time, I believed. At the altar call, I was the first person to get to the stage. With my wife of 15 years we are still loving God with all we are and all we have!” Ken, CO

 

“I was a sheltered preacher’s kid and thought you could never be cool and actually be a Christian. Mylon taught me that I could be myself, long hair and all, and still love Jesus. I was not a rebellious kid, I just thought that you had to look a certain way to be a Christian. Then when I went to Mylon’s concerts I could feel the love of a living God. I wanted to know Jesus. So I asked Him into my heart at Mylon’s concert in Florida in 1988. My life has never been the same.” Ray, AL

 

“I’ve followed your ministry since the Broken Heart days. I used to get frustrated when you’d stop to bring the Word in the middle of a concert. I see now that it was the most important part of the program! DW, Internet

 

            Wow! Every time I read these, I tear up at the goodness of God. It is truly a privilege to serve the Lord and do His Will. Nothing satisfies like being in the perfect will of God! We pray these testimonies were a great encouragement and reminder to you that your agreement with us is making a difference. As you sow your precious seed this month, please know that we are extremely grateful for all you give to help us share the Love of God around the world! Together we will take a bunch of people to heaven with us!

 

We sure do love you!

Mylon & Christi

 

 

 

P.S. Thank you again for being TEAM MYLON members. If you would like your giving to go towards TV please designate “On the Road to Freedom” online or on your check. We count it a privilege to call you friends and partners. Please don’t forget we are here for you! Please send us your prayer requests and we’d love to hear your praise reports too! Just go to Contact Us on our site to share.

A STEP OF FAITH

 

When Jesus said to the disciples, “Follow Me,” they left everything familiar: their home, family and careers to step out into the unknown. Abraham took the same step when God called him. Hebrews 11:8 says, It was by faith that Abraham obeyed when God called him to leave home and go to another land that God would give him as his inheritance. He went without knowing where he was going.” When God called Christi and me into full time ministry, we both left everything we knew to answer the call. Was it scary and uncomfortable at times? Yes and we were tempted to worry and doubt and fear. But there’s only two ways to live: by faith or by sight. We choose to “walk by faith and not by sight!”

 

It’s time to step out in faith! We are so excited to report that we have been given the opportunity to produce a TV show that will be aired worldwide. This represents the unknown for us and a total step of faith. The Holy Spirit leads us by His peace and Christi and I both have perfect peace concerning this directive from God. We have had a growing desire for several years now to begin ministering more on TV. This outlet would enable us to reach more people with the good news of the gospel without physically traveling to reach them. I am grateful for God’s grace that has enabled me to travel for 56 years. But I believe we have entered a new season that will cause my “latter years to be greater than my former.” This means we will be more fruitful for the Kingdom of God in the days ahead than ever before!

 

“I have not kept the good news of your justice hidden in my heart; I have talked about your faithfulness and saving power. I have told everyone in the great assembly of your unfailing love and faithfulness.” Psalm 40:10 NLT

 

The purpose of TV ministry is to give us the ability to TELL EVERYONE (to testify) about His faithfulness, saving power and unfailing LOVE!  Since 1980 we have had the honor of leading hundreds of thousands of people to the saving knowledge of Jesus. We have asked the Lord for the privilege now of leading millions of people to Him. We believe that this divine opportunity in TV is our answer to prayer to reach the nations. At 72, I am reminded that we are never too old for God to fulfill His purpose and plan. It is never too late for God! Moses, Abraham, Joshua and Caleb all were in the latter years of their life when they were the most productive for The Lord and had their greatest victories! Proverbs 4:18 says, “The path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, that shines brighter and brighter until the full day.”  his means that what’s ahead for us, who choose to love and serve God, is that our years keep getting better and brighter!!

           

Habakkuk 2:2 says, “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it.” This month, the Lord has instructed us to give you, our faithful friends and partners, the clear vision for TV ministry. The working title for the show is “On the Road to Freedom.” This is the name of an album I recorded with Alvin Lee while searching for freedom in a Rock and Roll lifestyle. The show will be the same non-religious setting, format and approach that you enjoy on our Church on the Run daily digital devotionals.

 

As you can imagine, this step of faith will require us to believe God for substantial financial increase. In preparation, God instructed us last year to sow more than ever before. According to II Corinthians 9:6, we understand that because we have sown generously, we have a right now to believe Him for a GENEROUS harvest! We judge Him faithful to His promises. We also commit to never go in debt. Therefore, we ask that you would agree with us in prayer and that you would prayerfully consider sowing a generous seed towards us reaching a million souls? Praise God, even now preparations are being made for the filming of the pilot! We still need $53,000 to complete the purchase of TV cameras, lighting and sound equipment. Once these items are purchased, it will significantly reduce the overall costs of filming. If you would like your giving to go towards filming/equipment costs, please notate “On the Road to Freedom” on your check or click HERE.   

 

According to Isaiah 60:3, we declare over your seed that “Nations shall come to our light and kings to the brightness of our rising.” Kings represent God divinely connecting us with people of prominence, influence, position and power to help us fulfill His will! Be encouraged, every day is getting better and brighter! 

 

 

We love you and pray for you every day,

Mylon & Christi 

 

 

P.S. Thank you for your faithful giving that helps us reach the nations with the GOOD NEWS that Jesus loves them! Please avail yourself of our FREE teachings at www.mylon.org. We are constantly updating and adding to our internet ministry.

April Love E-Letter 2017

April Love E-Letter 2017

BE BOLD

 

The wicked flee when no one is pursuing, but the righteous are bold as a lion.” Proverbs 28:1

 

      Recently, in a time of prayer, I was reminded of this scripture. It rose up in my heart so strong, it seemed like a battle cry…“THE RIGHTEOUS ARE AS BOLD AS A LION!” The Holy Spirit began to impress upon my heart that NOW is the time to BE BOLD and take ground for the kingdom of God. I felt a sense of urgency knowing that Jesus is coming soon and the Lord has given us a unique window of opportunity. In Ephesians 6:19, Paul prays for “freedom of utterance…to be given me, that I may open my mouth to proclaim boldly the mystery of the good news.” Please understand that every time God gives us an opportunity, a promotion or uncommon favor, the purpose is to boldly share the good news of the Gospel. 

 

       This is not a time to draw back in fear! The secular world we live in tries to intimidate those who disagree with their lies. But Hebrews 10:39 says, “We are not of those who draw back and are destroyed, we are those who BELIEVE!” Here reveals the key to our boldness: FAITH IN GOD! Definitions of boldness include, “Courage; bravery; fearlessness.”  In the midst of social pressure to conform to political correctness, we absolutely must refuse to be ashamed of the Gospel “for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes…” (Rom 1:16) Think about it. Those who don’t agree with God’s Word boldly proclaim their deceptions to all who will listen. But we know The Truth. Jesus said, “I am The Way, The Truth and The Life!” How much more should we boldly proclaim! But in stark contrast to the world’s angry outbursts, Ephesians 4:15 says we speak “the truth in Love.”

       Please understand that this call to be a bold witness for Jesus is not just for those you see on the platform at church or for those who minister on TV. We don’t need to be famous for Him to use us. Before He returns, the last great revival will not be led and known by the names of men. It will be led and known only by His name, JESUS. He is teaching and preparing us right now for our part in that revival. For example, the Holy Spirit began instructing Christi and me so clearly where to go and who to share His Love within everyday places: the grocery store, during weekly appointments or the elderly woman named Ruby who was eating lunch alone and sitting across from us at a Cracker Barrel. It is exciting to allow the Lord to move in such extraordinary ways. We simply need to be willing and choose to be BOLD.

 

       If we find that our boldness is lacking, then we need to go to the throne! Hebrews 4:16 says, “Let us then fearlessly, confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in good time for every need.” As we spend time in His presence (studying the Word and in prayer) we learn that His grace IS sufficient and His power enables us to do what we could not do without it. But He requires us to take the step. It’s time to be bold! He could prompt us at our work lunchroom to encourage a fellow coworker, to be kind to the sales clerk who seems to be having a very bad day or pay for a police officer’s meal. I’ll testify that it’s never boring serving God. It is a great faith adventure!  

 

      Please check our ministry itinerary for an exciting upcoming event near you. And don’t forget to take advantage of our faith-filled resources to keep you encouraged throughout your day at www.mylon.org. We’d love the opportunity to encourage you in person! That is exactly what your monthly giving enables us to do for others. As you sow your precious seed, be encouraged that you are helping us to boldly proclaim the good news of the Gospel everywhere in the world we go! Be bold in your giving! Be bold in sharing God’s Love! Proverbs 11:25 promises that “The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.” That’s GOOD NEWS! We’re proclaiming it to the world!

 

 

We Love You,

Mylon & Christi

March Love E-Letter 2017

March Love E-Letter 2017

 

                                                                               

 

SEND NOW PROSPERITY

 

“This is the day which the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. O Lord, save now, we beseech You; O Lord, we beseech You, send NOW prosperity and give us success!”
Psalm 118:24-25

 

            We rejoice and we are glad; because this is the day our Lord has made! Christi and I praise God for all the good things He is doing right now in our marriage, family, ministry and our nation! We also look ahead with great expectation to see the desires He has placed in our hearts come to pass! But these divine dreams are BIG. Have you noticed that about God? He will never call you to do something that doesn’t require faith, an absolute trust and dependence on Him alone to fulfill. This God given dream Christi and I have is no different. It will require a BIG increase in ability, opportunities, finances and creative ideas for fulfillment. So this prayer in Psalm 118 is what the Lord recently showed us to pray.

 

            It begins with being thankful. We will never see future dreams come to pass if we are not thankful now for the desires He has already granted. After choosing to rejoice and be thankful, then we see the request made to the Lord. Christi and I have been praying this daily, “This is the day The Lord has made. We rejoice and we are glad in it! We ask you Lord to SEND NOW PROSPERITY and give us GREAT SUCCESS!” This request is not for our own benefit: to own a big house, drive a fancy car and have a big flat screen TV. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with having those things. But God’s purpose for prosperity is so that we can BE A BLESSING. To advance the kingdom of God in the earth and to help more people. When this is your motive, then He can trust you with all of the “things.”

 

           Psalms 112 teaches us that a righteous man is one who honors the Lord by delighting to do His will (more than His own.) Several times it states that a righteous man is a generous giver. Because of the right choices He has made, verse three says, Prosperity and welfare (wealth and riches) are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.” There are some who think that you have to be poor to be holy or humble. But please notice that this man’s righteousness is intact even with wealth and riches in his house! God wants you BLESSED!

 

           Isaiah 48:17-18 says, I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you in the way that you should go. Oh, that you had paid attention to My commandments! Then your peace and prosperity would have been like a [flowing] river…” God is ready to teach us His ways so that we may profit in all of our endeavors. But we must look to Him not ourselves: our business savvy, strong work ethic, our popularity, etc. The Lord must be our sole source of supply. He has the plan. But this verse says that Israel decided to go their own way and missed out on peace and prosperity so abundant that it would have flowed like a river! That’s an unending source of constant supply. Praise The Lord that stirs me up! It’s time to pay attention.  

 

            Please notice that God’s prosperity always includes His perfect peace! In Strong's Concordance Peace/Shalom means “completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, and harmony, the absence of agitation or discord.” I can tell you from my own experience of making millions in rock and roll that you don’t want prosperity without peace. I was miserable! Without God, the money is devoured by sin and bad choices. Proverbs 10:22 explains, “The blessing of the Lord—it makes [truly] rich, and He adds no sorrow with it [neither does toiling increase it].” Truly rich includes what money can’t buy: peace, health, safety and harmony in your relationships. In addition, God’s way doesn’t require us working more hours. That’s truly rich!

 

            As you sow your precious seed this month, be excited that because of your obedience to give to the work of the kingdom, you are paying attention to His commands. Therefore, The Lord is teaching you to profit. Get ready for creative concepts, witty inventions and uncommon favor with those who are in authority over you! According to Psalms 35:27, it’s time to shout for joy, be glad and “Say continually, ‘Let the Lord be magnified, Who takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servant!”

 

We Love You,

Mylon & Christi

 

P.S. Thank you again for your faithful support each month. We pray over your seed that the Lord would “Send now prosperity and give you great success!” If you would like further teaching on this subject, please check out Mylon’s latest CD, “Faith for Supernatural Increase.” We are taking this message of the blessing of The Lord everywhere we go. God wants His children blessed so that we can be a BIG blessing!

February Love E-Letter 2017

February Love E-Letter 2017

RECEIVE THE LOVE OF GOD

 

       Mylon and I don’t take these monthly love letters to you lightly. We pray and ask the Lord for direction on how He would have us encourage you. This month, I’d like to share with you some of my testimony about how I received the Love of the Father…

 

       What made the difference for me? I get asked that question a lot. Why was I not angry over my biological father walking away and leaving me and my mom alone without any support? Why did I not go through rebellious teenage years experimenting with drugs or alcohol and refusing to obey my parents?  I remember when others began to ask me these questions, I thought it was strange because it never entered my mind growing up to abandon my walk with the Lord. I only desired to know Him more. Not that I didn’t make many mistakes and need the mercy of God daily. But I can say that I was determined to stay in fellowship with Him through prayer, reading His Word and attending church. So, after observing the status of so many angry youth today, I now ask myself, what made the difference for me?

 

       To answer that question I have to begin with a story I call, “The Adventures of Twirling Girl.” (If you would like to hear this story in its entirety, you can hear it on the CD that accompanies The Adventures of Twirling Girl children’s book available at www.mylon.org) It’s the moment in my life when I chose to believe and receive the Love of God.

 

       At a very young age, when my earthly daddy walked away, my mother taught me Psalms 68:5, “A father to the fatherless is God.” She reminded me daily that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me and He will meet every need. Then He proved it to me! Like every other child, I was growing fast and constantly outgrew my shoes and clothes. At one point, I needed dresses for church. It was a time when every little girl wore her prettiest dresses to church and twirled on the playground. We were living in government subsidized housing and on a very strict budget. So buying church dresses was definitely not an option. But my mom was learning and teaching me, to take everything to the Lord in prayer. In her innocence, she believed that He would hear her prayer. Even if it was for something that others would call lavish…pretty twirling dresses for her little girl!

 

       Shortly after my mom and I prayed together asking the Lord for help, a young man who was a Christ for the Nations bible student, was walking though the children’s section at Sears department store. Oddly, he was prompted by the Holy Spirit to buy some little girls dresses. This young man was single, with no children and he was a student! So any extra money was paying for his education. Obedience to the Lord would require sacrifice for him and a total step of faith. He didn’t know who the dresses were for, so he didn’t know the size or even the right style to buy (He was a single guy!) Despite those uncertainties, he obeyed The Lord and bought the dresses in faith. The next day, when he was walking by my mom in the hallway at work, the Holy Spirit said, “Those dresses are for Sharon’s little girl, Christi.” (It thrills me that He knows my name! Jesus said, “I know my sheep and I call them by name.” Please be encouraged, He knows your name! He understands your challenges today and He hears your prayers.) When my mom brought those dresses home to me, her declaration wasn’t ‘Look how good we prayed,’ it was ‘Look how much your Father loves you! He gave you these pretty new dresses!’ And yes, they fit perfectly! On the church playground, I remember twirling and telling all who would listen, “Look how much my Father loves me! He gave me these pretty new dresses!”  

 

       That story for me is what Ephesians 3:19 calls an experience with the love of God that “far surpasses mere knowledge.” It was good that my mom told me how much I was loved but then God proved it to me! It was through that encounter that I chose to believe at a young age, the Father loved me. I John 4:19 says, “We love because He first loved us.” He loved us FIRST. When we receive it, then we can love Him in return. Out of that love, we find that we want to do all that He asks us to do. Jesus said, “If you love Me, you will obey My commandments.” Love motivates our obedience. Believing and receiving the love of God, THIS is what made the difference in my life. This is what will make a difference in your life!

 

       As you sow your generous seed this month, be encouraged that the GREATEST expression of LOVE is GIVING: “For God SO LOVED the world that HE GAVE…” When you give to the kingdom, it is the HIGHEST expression of your Love for the Lord. Let’s be expressions of His Love in the earth, being a blessing to others everywhere we go! The Love of God…IT makes ALL the difference!!

 

We Love You,

Mylon and Christi

 

PS Please be assured that your financial seed is working to share His Love to the thousands we are reaching on the internet, TV, prisons and churches. We’d love to share the Love of God with you this year at one of our upcoming meetings. Please check our itinerary at www.mylon.org to see if you can attend. Bring a friend! We believe for an encounter with His Love in 2017 that changes everything!

January Love E-Letter 2017

January Love E-Letter 2017

JUDGE GOD FAITHFUL

 

      It’s the beginning of a New Year! What an exciting time to be alive. We were predestined to live in this moment in time before Jesus returns, and the final anointing is available to us who believe! This year we are going to witness glorious manifestations of His faithfulness! At the start of each year, Christi and I take time to look back in amazement and acknowledge (We write it all down & discuss) all the good things the Lord accomplished in our lives in 2016. As we remind ourselves of His faithfulness, He then reveals us what we need to believe and declare for the upcoming year. This year is no different:

 

By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful Who had promised.” Hebrews 11:11
 

       Other versions say, “…Sarah received the ability to conceive” and “…Sarah received physical power to conceive a child, even when she was long past the normal age for it.” Conceiving a child in old age represents to us, what man calls IMPOSSIBLE. Sarah had tried to have children from her youth and I’m sure she was resolved to the fact that she was not able to conceive. But the TRUTH of God’s Word (His promises to us) will change the facts (the natural circumstance) when we believe! In Genesis 18:14 God says, “Is anything too difficult or too wonderful for the Lord? At the appointed time, when the season comes, I will return to you and Sarah will have a son.”

 

       After hearing the promise, Sarah had to make a choice. Surely, she was weary and discouraged after waiting her entire life for a child. Her body was telling her it’s too late. Her mind and heart were asking, ‘Could she really get her hopes up again?’ At some point the Word tells us that she made the choice and “by faith Sarah received the strength and power to conceive seed.” This means, the ability to dream again. She saw the impossible come to pass by faith. Was her faith demonstrated through tears or endless days of fasting and prayer? No, the Word says that she simply, “JUDGED HIM FAITHFUL!”  Sarah chose to believe that God would keep His promise. Could our dreams coming true really be that simple? Yes, it is!

 

        To judge can be defined as: To hear and determine a case. To examine and decide; to pass sentence on. We need to take a moment and ask ourselves, when the gavel comes down, have we judged God faithful or unfaithful concerning our case? What is our final ruling concerning God and His promises? The truth is that if we judge God faithful, we won’t be worried, frustrated or upset. If we are feeling hopeless and ready to quit remember that Sarah gave birth to the promise when she was “too old” and “beyond the proper time of life.” We are never too old for our dreams to come true! It is never too late for God!

 

       We would love to see you at one of our upcoming meetings to inspire you to DREAM AGAIN! Don’t forget our anointed resources: teaching CD’s, books, music, etc. available at www.mylon.org. Please be encouraged that when you sow your precious seed each month, you have chosen to “judge God faithful Who has promised” you an abundant harvest! Our seed takes time to grow. Galatians 6:9 reminds us to “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Don’t quit if it seems like the promise is taking a long time. Proverbs 28:20 says that “a person who wants quick riches will get into trouble” but A faithful man will ABOUND with BLESSINGS!” The kingdom of God operates “Line upon line. Precept upon precept.” Faithfulness (Trust and reliance on The Lord) day in and day out will result in an upcoming year of supernatural abundance. Why? Because we judge God faithful!

 

You are valued. You are appreciated. You are loved!

Mylon and Christi
