Greetings to you in the wonderful Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. At this beautiful Fall season, we are reminded of everything for which we are thankful to God. He gives the harvest and provides our needs. In Canada the thanksgiving celebration was on October 14th and I trust all our Canadian friends had a wonderful celebration! In the USA the thanksgiving celebration will be on November 28, so to all our American friends, Happy Thanksgiving and I hope and pray you will have a great celebration of thanks to the Lord with your families!
I want to express my thanks to all who came out and supported our Fall fund-raising efforts at our banquets in Edmonton and in the Toronto area. The Lord provided our needs!
I am so thankful to the Lord for the American missionary who came to my village of Cana of Galilee when I was a young man. This missionary was friendly and kind and he showed the love of God. I know the Holy Spirit led him to pray for me and pursue after my soul, even though I was the last person anyone would expect to become a believer. I am so thankful for the Holy Spirit who awakened my spirit, who opened my eyes to see the truth and for calling me into His service. Today, through God's leading, I am being used to reach millions of people with the Good News. Untold thousands have come to the Lord's salvation through the media ministry of Light For All Nations that the Lord raised up. Hallelujah!
I am now doing a new production in Israel for a very important project - a production of 62 programs - a series all about Jesus - the goal of which is to lift up and extol Jesus, His Person-hood, His deity and to expound upon Scriptures that show who Jesus really is. You see, there is a very serious attack at this time against Jesus. It gives rise to heresies in the church, and diminishes the proper place that is rightfully His. The secular world attacks Jesus. Islam relentlessly attacks Jesus on all the major facts, like that of His crucifixion, His resurrection and His deity.
We, as true believers and soldiers of the Lord, must take up the cause of Christ. We must put on the full armor of God that we will be ready and victorious over these attacks. We must pray for the Holy Spirit's anointing upon us to speak the truth in love, and bring the Word of God (our Sword) to the people which will penetrate into their very souls, and open their eyes! Oh my dear friends, please pray for the Spirit's anointing upon me that I would be effective in speaking the truth in love. Pray that millions will watch these programs both on satellite channels and online all over world, and that these programs would be used of God to bring many lost souls unto salvation!
As I recently walked in Jerusalem on the Via Delarosa (The Way of the Cross), I pondered all that Jesus Christ endured for me. Below is a photo of me carrying a large cross in front of Station # 9. Although I smiled for the photo, my soul was deeply moved to think that our Lord carried the cross upon which He suffered and died and paid the price for my redemption and yours. Before this happened Jesus had explained to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem to die, they objected and Peter actually rebuked Jesus for saying such things, but Jesus strongly rebuked Peter for being carnal and said, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me" (Matthew 16:24). I urge you to read this whole chapter of the Bible.
Pray that we all would daily carry the cross and follow Him and that the Lord would be pleased with how we are living for Him and with how we deny ourselves and live sacrificially, and with utmost love, loyalty and dedication to Him. "For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?" (Matthew 16:26). Such important words! The whole world needs Jesus!
