GO INTO ALL THE WORLD

 

“And He said to them, GO into ALL the world and preach and publish OPENLY the good news (the Gospel) to EVERY creature [of the WHOLE human race].” Mark 16:15 AMPC

 

       Everyone needs to hear about Jesus. That’s the purpose for our new TV ministry, “On the Road to Freedom.” Joel 3:14 says that there a great number of people making decisions right now about Jesus: Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near...” We live in a day and age where there is immense pressure to be “politically correct.” But Proverbs 28:1 teaches us, The righteous are bold as a lion. We can never draw back! NOW is the time to BE BOLD and take ground for the kingdom of God. Jesus is coming soon and the Lord has given us a unique window of opportunity. Every time God gives us an opportunity, a promotion or an open door, the purpose is to boldly share the good news of the Gospel. 

 

       That is why Christi and I want to THANK YOU for boldly backing us in prayer, giving and spreading the Word. Here is one report from a viewer that shows how your agreement is making a difference: “I’m so blessed to have found your ministry- because of the way in which your teachings are structured! I’ve never heard anyone preach scripture the way ya’ll do. To show the viewer HOW TO reject what the enemy is always throwing at us. Ya’ll give verse after verse…All of these scriptures I knew but never had someone teach me HOW TO apply that word in my life so that I am not on the roller coaster the enemy tries to keep us on…” Praise God! We are extremely grateful for your help in reaching the multitudes for Jesus.

 

       In Matthew 9:37-38 Jesus said, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” Who are the laborers? Jesus answers that question in Matthew 28:18-20 saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. GO therefore and make disciples of ALL the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you... This verse is commonly referred to as The Great Commission. It is clear that EVERYONE IS CALLED to share the message of Jesus!

 

       We are ALL called to help spread the Gospel through prayer and financial giving, and some of us are called to physically go into all the world. Both are vital parts in the ministry of Jesus. Christi and I are called to physically GO and teach others about Jesus. That is why we have traveled over 2 million miles on one airline in 20 years, driven thousands of miles in rental cars and stayed hundreds of nights in hotel rooms away from home. We have simply answered THE CALL.

 

        When God called me to teach His Word, I was in full time ministry in a successful Christian band. When God called Christi, she was a successful interior designer in Dallas. This isn’t surprising because when Jesus called the disciples, they were right in the middle of successful careers as fishermen, tax collectors, doctors, too! Matthew 4:18-20 says, “And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” They immediately left their nets (and the boat their family owned for generations) and followed Him.” That is exactly what we did, Hallelujah! And it has been an amazing faith adventure!!

 

       Jesus. Is. Coming. Soon. We are in the LAST…of the last days. A little sliver of time right before Jesus returns for His bride. The harvest is indeed plentiful but the laborers are few. Please spend some time in prayer about answering THE CALL of God for your life. Isaiah 6:8 explains, “I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will GO for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” If you are willing to pray that same prayer, please say with me, “Lord, Here am I! Send me! I choose to surrender my life to Your plan and purpose. I believe the Holy Spirit will reveal to me my part in the kingdom.”

 

       When you give this month be excited knowing that you are answering THE Call! You are doing your part in helping us purchase TV gear, filming and editing costs. Through TV ministry we are GOING INTO ALL THE WORLD to teach and preach and make disciples. Be encouraged that we can not out give God or He wouldn’t be God! We are praying Luke 6:38 NLT over your seed: “Give, and you will receive. Your gift WILL return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, RUNNING OVER, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.” WooHoo!! Such GOOD NEWS. We are doing the Happy dance now!!

 

BE BLESSED!

We Love and cherish your friendship,
