OUR SAVIOR HAD AN EARTHLY MOTHER TOO!

 

OUR SAVIOR HAD AN EARTHLY MOTHER TOO!

BY: DR. TIM TODD 

I honor my precious mom, Barbara Todd, this Mother’s Day and every day! I love you mom! Happy Mother’s Day!” Your son, Tim.

As we are in the season of celebrating Mother’s Day I’m reminded of the song: “Mary Did You Know”, written about a MOM holding her baby son in her arms and dreaming about the future, soaking in that brief moment in time, realizing how incredibly awesome her role of being a good MOM is going to be in the life of her child.

Now true, this particular family situation with Jesus’ mother Mary, was a little unique, being a virgin and giving birth to a child always makes you more than a little unusual. However, doesn’t this tell us something of how important God sees the family? The fact that God the Father chose for His eternal Son to be born into an earthly family with a mother and a father instead of being born into some monastery somewhere in the mountains.

No, the fact that Jesus had a MOTHER too, tells us how important the role of MOTHER is in the development and life of every child.

And when it comes to the celebration of Mother’s Day, if you think about it, it really involves 2 parties…. It involves:

1) MOMS— A day for you and your role to be honored and celebrated, because being a MOM is no light thing! It’s a major thing to be a MOM and moms everywhere need to be affirmed in this important role. They need to recognize the awesome responsibility of rising up to the challenge of being a MOM.

But—the celebration of Mother’s Day—also involves another party:
2) ALL CHILDREN— A day for us to honor and celebrate not only our moms, but also this honored role of motherhood, I want to address each of these groups.

All children: God teaches us in one of the 10 commandments that we are to, “honor our father and mother…” But what does it mean “to honor…”, (literally) “to honor” means to show respect or esteem. Now, as a child myself, I discovered that  the application of this changes as we grow older.

Let me expound on that….
There is a difference in how we are to honor our moms when we are young, and when we are older. The young: (young children…growing up living in the home).

The Bible teaches that  one of the best ways to honor your mom (at this age) is to embrace the attitude of obedience.

God says in Ephesians 6:1, ”Children obey your parents…” (notice the wording here is not optional), it’s the right thing to do!

I’m reminded of 2 boys on their way to school and talking about their families. One boy said, “I’ve figured out a system for getting along with my MOM. It’s very simple. She tells me what to do….AND I DO IT!!!”
What a concept!!!

Now here’s the important thing to understand about this…There comes a time in a child’s life when they grow into adulthood and are no longer commanded by God to obey their parents.

The command still holds that we are to honor our parents, but remember “to honor” means to “show respect and esteem”, it doesn’t mean to obey. And wise moms (and dads) will make sure their children are released with their blessing into adulthood.

My brothers, sisters, and I, have been privileged to bless our wonderful mom, Barbara Todd, with our love for her in every possible way.

And so, for the older children…. (adult age), one of the best ways to honor your mom is to honor God with your life in your actions toward her.

CUBA CRUSADE AND BIBLE DISTRIBUTION DELAYED

Our April 17-25 Cuba Crusade and Bible distribution has been delayed to July. The Cuban government delayed the issuing of our Religious Visas and we had no choice but to delay the trip. On the surface this was very disappointing, however, we recognize that God is sovereign! He is in control! We know that God’s timing is always the best timing. What the devil has meant for bad we know that God will use for good. As we prepare for going to Cuba in July we plan to give away MORE Bibles and win MORE Cuban people to Jesus! Please be praying with us as we accommodate changing the dates.

REVIVAL FIRES ARE BURNING ACROSS AMERICA

AND AROUND THE WORLD

Jesus instructed, “Go…and make disciples of all nations” (Matt 28:19). There is no alternate plan in case the Gospel fails because IT WON’T! More people are being saved, healed and baptized into the Holy Spirit today than ever before in man’s history. The tempo is increasing, leading to but one conclusion: JESUS IS COMING VERY SOON!!!

We are not called to go into a battle with the outcome yet to be decided. The battle was won at Calvary. Jesus commanded the disciples: “Pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers” (Matt 9:38), and added, “Go!” He still says it. It is a transferred mandate.

Holy Ghost Revival Fire comes from God, yes, but when? When we repent of our plain disobedience and return to the basic task…WINNING THE LOST!!! Every single church activity should relate to turning the world back to God. Why are we waiting? RESCUE THE PERISHING…or we will need rescuing ourselves!

Thank you so much for praying for our revival services as we continue to witness a tremendous amount of people giving their hearts to Christ!

Dr. Tim Todd - his dad - Dr. Cecil todd - and his brother - Pastor Cecil

Dr. Tim Todd, his dad, Dr. Cecil Todd, and his brother, Pastor Cecil Todd- Praying, Planning & Preparing for Evangelistic Crusade and Bible distribution in Cuba.

Take a Friday night walk through Havana’s Parque G to see up close how much Cuba needs Christ. By day, the downtown park offers a pleasant stroll along a wide, tree-lined boulevard down to the gulf coastline. By night, Parque G becomes a murky zone where Cuban teens, dressed somewhere between hipsters and goths, cluster to smoke, drink, and exchange drugs. Young couples hide in the shadows of bushes as musicians hold jam sessions under street lamps.

IMG_3235But in dramatic contrast to the surrounding activity, at 1 a.m. 25 young Cuban Christians form a circle to pray. Holding hands, they shout forceful prayers toward Heaven for the salvation of the Cuban people. Across the intersection, a uniformed police squad watches with interest, but does nothing to stop their outreach.

The youth are Christians from a strong evangelical Cuban church based in the heart of the inner-city of Havana. Most of the youth are new believers and have been delivered from drugs and alcohol thanks to someone who cared enough to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their neighborhood.

IMG_2988Too many churches live their faith inside their walls, when the church needs to be in the street. While we are in Havana in April we will be conducting evangelistic crusades, stealing souls from the devil!

Speaking enthusiastically with visiting Christians, the Cuban teens point to each other along the organic human chain of who brought who to faith in Christ. Their evangelism style is direct—”Hi, I’m a Christian, and I’d like to tell you about Jesus”—and brings results. The Christian young people in Cuba are on fire for God and the church is growing rapidly! We plan to arm these young people with the weapon of the Word of God, the brand new, Cuban Spanish Truth for Youth Bible!

CUBA PIC 1The Christian youth in Cuba show no fear of arrest. The truth is, Havana police will tell you that they need help in confronting the recent wave of street drug abuse. As a former drug addict myself, I know that if these on fire for God young people in Cuba were not afraid when they were doing drugs in Parque G, why would they be afraid now that they have the truth?

The edgy street evangelism in Cuba’s capital reveals that Western perceptions about Cuban Christianity seem woefully outdated.
In one of our services at Pastor Juan Carlos’ church in Cielo DE Avila he offered an arresting example of believer multiplication. In the hours before and after the service, a multiracial mix of youth arrived in waves as public buses pass by, and eventually they packed the sanctuary. The charismatic pastor frequently towels off his head as he proclaims “si se puede” (“yes, it can be done”) power of the gospel to change lives.

FullSizeRenderIn Cuba the church is alive, growing, faithful, and active, persevering through difficulty. We are working inside Cuba now to bring in the harvest and provide Bibles for those that have never had a Bible!

Cuban Protestants represent 4 to 6 percent of the island’s population (between 450,000 and 700,000 people). Growth has been most robust in urban areas among denominations actively planting casas cultos, legalized in the 1990s in response to a surge in attendance at established houses of worship.

IMG_3269Since the 1959 Revolution, Castro’s Communist government has placed numerous restrictions on religious expression in Cuba—a reality illustrated by most sources’ requests for anonymity. Yet the Cuban church is thriving despite its limitations, and its leaders ask that their church not be used as a geopolitical pawn. “We are part of the body of Christ in the world, yet people see us only with political eyes,” said one leading Cuban evangelical. “To those people we say: ‘Come and see.’ ”

Cuban evangelicals have told us that the economic depression and concurrent revival has fed the spiritual hunger of many Cubans, largely nominally Roman Catholic. Dramatically higher attendance at established worship services and explosive growth of new casas cultos (“house churches”) are two impossible-to-ignore signs of the vibrancy of Cuban Christian growth. The Assemblies of God is Cuba’s largest Protestant group at 3,000 churches (up from 90 in the previous decade), for years tracked new congregations on a large wall map at their headquarters. But when growth exploded, they stopped adding red dots because it became impossible to display all the new churches on a single map.

IMG_3136Angie and I traveled throughout the Cuban island June 16-22, 2016. The pilgrimage revealed a surprisingly healthy church with a new generation of young pastors boldly pushing old boundaries. Their current evangelistic zeal is best summed up in the recent modification of a common evangelical rallying cry: from “Cuba para Cristo” to “Cuba para Cristo—ahora.” Cuba for Christ—now.
Since the 1990s, major changes have buffeted Cuba’s 11.4 million people. After the 1991 fall of the Soviet Union, Cuba’s heavily subsidized economy collapsed, causing Cuba’s “Special Period” of economic crisis, famine, and more than a decade of hardship.

IMG_2860The time for Harvest in Cuba is now!!! The time for Bible distribution in Cuba is now!!! While Angie and I are in Cuba for our crusade, April 17-25, we will be giving away 10,000 full Bibles to people who have never had a Bible and preaching the Gospel to people who have never heard the Gospel.

We will also be distributing the brand new, Cuban Spanish, Truth for Youth Bible to young people. Two and a half years ago the Lord began to lead me to translate the Truth for Youth Bible into Cuban Spanish. At that point the doors for us to minister in Cuba had not even been made available. It really didn’t make sense. Now, we see that obeying the Lord, and doing what He instructed me to do is going to be a tremendous tool to reach the 1.4 million young people of Cuba.

We still need to raise about $25,000 for the Bibles that we will be giving away. If you have already given, THANK YOU! If you have not, please prayerfully consider helping us provide the Bibles! Thank you for praying and obeying!

Evangelist Tim Todd


THE 10,000 BIBLES WILL COST OUR MINISTRY ONLY $5 EACH! THAT MEANS WE NEED TO RAISE $50,000 FOR THE BIBLES. YOUR SACRIFICIAL FINANCIAL GIFT WILL BE A TREMENDOUS HELP! PLEASE PRAY FOR THIS EMERGENCY CALL FOR BIBLES FOR CUBA.

Revival Fires are Burning Bright in our Revival Service

 

REVIVAL FIRES ARE BURNING BRIGHT IN OUR REVIVAL SERVICES

fullsizerender

Waitress Natalie got saved!!

On Saturday, February 18 I was enjoying fellowship and supper at Longhorn Steakhouse in Little Rock, AR with my friend, Rev. Eddie Gwin. I began to share the love of Jesus with our waitress, Natalie. I asked her if she needed prayer for anything and she unfolded the story about her twin girls being born premature diagnosed with ’twin twin transfusion’. What a God appointment! I began to share with Natalie what God did for our twin girls, Miracle & Mariah. As you know, they were diagnosed with the exact same thing! Natalie recognized that the Lord had brought us to her. As the Holy Spirit began to move I had the honor of leading Natalie to the Lord at our table, right there in Longhorn!

IMG_3457.pngThe next morning I was eating breakfast at the hotel getting ready to leave for first revival service at TAG Church in Little Rock, where Dwayne Maynard is pastor. I was privileged again with the opportunity to share Jesus with a lady and her 2 young daughters that were in town for a dance recital competition the night before. As I left I invited them to the service and the Holy Spirit compelled them to come to the service instead of swimming like they had planned. They came forward and gave their hearts to the Lord in the first service of the revival!!!

TAG Church has been in a sovereign move of the Holy Ghost for more than three years! During our services there, we witnessed a mass of people give their hearts to the Lord, get filled with the Holy Ghost, healed, delivered from bondages, and SET ON FIRE FOR GOD!!!

God is still moving in these last days and many are responding to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our revival services. We’ve seen hundreds of people saved over the last several weeks in our services. All the sparks from the revival fire have overflowed and broken out into the communities where God has opened the doors for us to preach. People are getting saved, people are being filled with the Spirit, people  are getting fired up for God! It is amazing to see what God is doing. In all of our revival services the power of God is falling so mightily and many are being saved. The power of God has been so real. It is just unbelievable.

IMG_5351.pngWe are so honored to be preaching  the Gospel of Jesus Christ somewhere every week, all over the country. We are keeping the revival fires burning and praying God will continue to move across the country and save more souls through the ministry that He has called us to before he comes back. It is amazing to see what God is doing. It’s overwhelming.

In the midst of all the bondage and sin and the negativity and division (of the election) there is a group of people God is raising up to spread the good news of the Gospel. Our only hope is in Jesus. There is no hope in anything or anyone else. We are following him and letting him lead us and guide us. There are people being saved every day through the ministry of Revival Fires! HALLELUJAH!!!

It’s not just kids getting saved. It’s all ages walking down the aisle putting their faith in Jesus Christ! People sitting in the pews who lack passion for God are getting their hearts in right relationship with Jesus in our revival services too. There are lost church members who claim to be Christians and have no fruit. They live one way in the church and one way outside of church. God is bringing them to repentance!

IMG_3211.pngIn so many of our churches we’ve tried everything — programs, religious traditions, tried doing everything in our power to change ourselves and be better people, and nothing has worked, and people realize the only person that can change their life is Jesus Christ and putting their faith in him.

There is urgency! Time is short. Time is very short. We’ve heard preachers preach that our whole lives. I grew up hearing that, but now is different. Everything with regard to Bible prophecy-wise has been fulfilled. The next event is the rapture. Right now God is extending mercy. He is pouring out his spirit on all flesh. He is getting as many people into the family of God as he can. It is as though God is doing everything but making the decision for people. It’s not going to be too much longer before God will tell his Son to ‘go get your bride’. We have to do everything we can to reach as many people as we can as quickly as we can.

With many disillusioned by the current political season, we’ve seen openness and receptiveness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ like we’ve never seen before. What I am seeing is people hungry for God, they are hungry for God to move, hungry to see revival fire here in America. It is all God. Every bit of it is all God. Nobody can take credit for anything. It’s all been a holy God and his sovereignty. When you try to analyze it, it’s only God.

SHREVEPORT ALTAR.pngI am honored to be part of such an outpouring. It’s very humbling and very overwhelming. It’s a great responsibility. You don’t want to say or do anything that would grieve the Holy Ghost or do anything that would jeopardize God’s hand being on your life. You have to walk very humbly and very sensitively. You have to be very careful to give God all the glory. Any bit of pride can shut down what God is doing. It’s all been God and it will all be God.

So many programs dominate so many churches. We’ve gotten so used to our programs. This is where people have missed it. We get so caught up in church work that we lose sight of the work of the Church! We go to church, have a couple songs, a bunch of boring announcements, you have clubs and car washes and bake sales and orchestrated songs, and the preacher preaches a three-point boring sermon he threw together out of a book the night before and there is no room for the power of God. We need the power of the Holy Ghost. Without the power of the Holy Ghost nothing else matters. Nothing will change somebody’s life but the power of God. If you have the best building and best singing and all this stuff but not the power of God you have missed it all. We have to walk daily with God and stay on our knees in fiery fervent prayer.


UPCOMING CUBA FOR JESUS CRUSADE

tfy-spanish-cover-draft-2016-07-28April 17-25 we will be conducting a Cuba for Jesus Crusade in Havana, Ciego and Santiago, Cuba! While we are there we will also be giving away 10,000 full Bibles to 10,000 precious people who have NEVER had a Bible! It’s hard to fathom that there are that many people without Bibles, however, there are actually more than 5 million people in Cuba that don’t have even one Bible! We have made it a TOP PRIORITY of the ministry that God has called us to, to provide a Bible for every person in Cuba that doesn’t have a Bible.

While we are in Havana we also have a confirmed April 24th meeting with the president of the Cuban Council of Churches to present the BRAND NEW Cuban Spanish Truth for Youth Bible for distribution. It is a miracle that we have this scheduled appointment. Please be praying that this meeting will result in reaching the 1.4  million teenagers with the effective evangelism tool of the Truth for Youth Bible.

BroTim with lady and friend holding Bible.JPGIn our June 16-22, 2016 Cuba Crusade we were so honored to see THOUSANDS of men, women, young people and children RUN to give their lives to Jesus Christ! What an awesome sight! Altars in Cuba filled to capacity with people weeping before God, surrendering their hearts and lives to Christ!

As we gave Bibles to the people of Cuba that have never had a Bible they would hold it like it was a piece of Gold. I can honestly say that as they received their very first Bible, if you were to ask them if they would rather have gold or the Bible they received, they would have chosen the Bible. Yes, the spiritually hungry people of Cuba would rather have God than gold!

CUBA 5.jpgPlease pray for us as we put everything into place and prepare for this very important Cuba Crusade. We have already raised $20,000 for the 10,000 Bibles we will give away while we are there. We still need to raise about $30,000 more. The full Bibles cost our ministry only $5 each. I’m convinced that providing Bibles for the people of Cuba who have NEVER HAD EVEN ONE BIBLE!, is one of the very most important things we can do for the Lord Jesus Christ.

Let me ask you to please prayerfully consider helping us with the rest of the expense for this Cuba for Jesus Crusade that is going to produce a massive harvest of souls and provide Bibles for 10,000 people who are desperate for their very first Bible.

CUBA.pngPlease pray about how many Bibles for the Cuban people God would have you to help us give away: A $25 gift will help us provide 5 full Bibles; A $50 gift will provide 10 Bibles; A $100 gift will provide 20 Bibles; A $200 gift will provide 40 Bibles; A $500 gift will provide 100 full Bibles for Cuba; A $1000 gift will provide 200 Bibles; A $2500 gift will help us give 500 Bibles; A $5000 gift will provide 1000 Bibles for Cuba; A $10,000 gift will provide 2000 full Bibles for 2000 Cuban people who have NEVER HAD A BIBLE!

CUBA 6.jpgAny size of gift will be so helpful! Thank you so much for praying and thank you for helping. You click here to send your very best gift to help us reach the precious people in the Communist country of Cuba.

 

 


BIBLES FOR CUBA MISSION

dsc00368April 18-26 Angie and I will be ministering in Cuba with my 85 year old dad, Cecil Todd, and my brother, Cecil Todd. While we are there we will be preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ and distributing 10,000 Bibles to people of Cuba that have never had a Bible!!!

Cuba’s Department of Religious Affairs has approved the distribution of these 10,000 Bibles throughout Cuba!

Bibles have been so scarce in Cuba that some preachers have been preaching for years from a borrowed Bible! Most churches have had only one or two Bibles for the entire congregation! We now have the opportunity to change this by bringing Bibles to Cuba!

Think About It…

Bible distribution in Cuba was stopped in 1969. It just blows my mind to know that we now have this wide open door for Bible distribution and evangelism in Cuba. This is a miracle and God is performing it!!!


cuba-1Here’s how it happened…

The Bible Commission of Cuba, a well respected liaison organization between Cuban churches and the Cuban government for over 60 years, has been used mightily of God to help open this vitally important door of Bible distribution and evangelism in Cuba. THE DEPARTMENT OF RELIGIOUS AFFAIRS for the Cuban government has officially approved this Bible distribution effort. What a miracle break through from God!

With tears of joy streaming down her cheeks this precious woman from Cuba told me personally, “My family has been praying for a Bible for 60 YEARS. God used you to answer our prayer. My mother didn’t live to see this day. She would be so happy.”

New Day In America

NEW DAY IN AMERICA

Dr. Perry Stone & Dr. Randy Valimont

The United States made a decision to overwhelmingly turn our back on a nonproductive, inadequate, spineless, and unrestrained government, and the vicious attack against our Christian foundational roots. America voted pro life and pro family for their children and grandchildren , and for the document of the US Constitution. As one who strongly urged the Church  of our Lord Jesus Christ to pray and put legs on their prayers by voting—and to do so for the above reasons, I am grateful for the strong stand the Church made.

img_4965

Dutch Sheets-Christian leader and best selling author

83% of the church voted in the presidential election. More than any time I can remember, we the Church flexed our praying and voting muscle…and we who cling to our God and our guns amazed the world. I have never witnessed so many people praying for the outcome of an election. This was a miraculous act of God, without question. Praise God almighty!

img_5032

Lou Ingle-The Call

However, I want to be crystal clear in saying that my faith is not in an individual or a political party; neither is my loyalty. There is no human being or human organization that can fix America. We know that there is not a political solution to America’s problems. Our problems are spiritual problems therefore they cannot be resolved by politics.

Alveda King-Niece to Dr. Martin Luther King

Certainly Donald Trump is not perfect and his abilities have bounds and limitations; his views are not always those that line up with the Word of God, nor do his deeds. But I, like so many Christian leaders, knew he was the better selection. And I believe God is already using him.

In order for me to even consider voting for an individual the starting point is that they must not be in favor of a woman’s right to choose to murder her child in the womb by way of abortion and they must not put their stamp of approval on homosexual behavior.

Cindy Jacobs-prayer warrior and best selling author

As you and I prayed during this election process, God was willing to give us mercy, not judgment. I will say though, Election Day was spiritually difficult. As Angie and I interceded and stood in faith, trusting that God was going to bring victory, it was emotional. On Election Day and on Inauguration Day, I wept, knowing that mercy had, truly, triumphed over judgment (James 2:13).

While I celebrate, however, I also realize there is still much work to do. Though it is appropriate to celebrate, we must remember this is only the start. Absolutely, it can be the fresh beginning we have so fervently anticipated, but it is still just that—the beginning. In every end there is also a beginning!

As for me, I plan to do my part to compel the Church not go back to sleep. I will continue to work tirelessly for the fullness of a great REVIVAL FIRE to sweep across America and around the world. Nothing else will embolden us to finish what has begun.

Todd Starnes-Fox News Commentator and best-selling author

And we must continue to pray for President Trump and our other government leaders. Prayer is the link, it is the nexus, between what is and what should be. It is rebellion against status quo. Praying is when human impotence and divine omnipotence intersect.

To the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ I say, THANK YOU for praying. You have made a spiritual impact on our nation.


CELEBRATING GOD’S MERCY AND ‘SECOND CHANCE’

Lou Sheldon, Traditional Family Values president

What an honor for Angie and I to attend the Inauguration and Inauguration Ball in Washington DC with some of America’s most prominent spiritual leaders. The celebration began on Thursday, January 19 with the theme, “Celebrating God’s Mercy.” – His mercy for America. God heard our prayers. This just shows what happens when God’s people stop and pray, asking the Lord to save America. This was truly a launch into a new season for America.

It was such an honor and privilege to be a part of the launching evening into a new government and really a new wineskin for America.

Dr. Tom Renfro-Was on his death bed with cancer. God healed him instantly!!!

The purpose of which, of course, was to celebrate the inauguration of Donald J. Trump as 45th President of the United States.

Many evangelicals, had an important hand in bringing about President Trump’s victory – with a lot of divine guidance. Now it’s up to the faith community to keep working for a more God-honoring country and culture.

God has given us a second chance and it’s really incumbent upon us to decide how we’re going to take this second chance – what we’re going to do with it.

Sister Effird-her 87 year old husband came to one of our revivals in Culpeper VA and gave his life to the Lord on Mother’s Day in 2006. He faithfully served the Lord until he passed. It was a blessing to see her again as we preached in her home church, Culpeper Assembly of God in Culpeper VA, the Sunday following the Inauguration.

Claiming 2 Chronicles 20:17 for 2017 by Evangelist Tim Todd

2 Chronicles 20:1 says that a large crowd of enemy armies came to wage war against Jehoshaphat. Verse 3 says that Jehoshaphat was frightened and asked for the Lord’s help. He announced a fast throughout Judah and the people of Judah gathered to seek the Lord’s help.

Some one has said: “When you are at the end of your rope tie a knot and keep climbing. Don’t give up, don’t give in, don’t give way, and don’t give out.” I love the gospel song entitled, “It ain’t over until God says it’s over” because it reminds me that in the Christian life we face many obstacles. And many things we run into we are forced to face things and we just don’t know what to do. We run into detours, dryness, dead locks, dead ends, and disasters—and for some of us it seems we do so on a regular basis. Many times that is the experience of our lives, and the need of our lives is to just find a way to get through these times of uncertainty. We can wait, we can wonder and wander, we can keep watch and keep worshipping, but still we don’t know for sure what to do.

Have you ever felt this way? Maybe there’s someone reading this who says I have many things that I know I need to take care of but those things cost money that I don’t have and is actually way beyond my means and I just…don’t know what to do. Or maybe it’s that your son or daughter is living in sin and out of control. You are afraid that you’ll receive an alarming phone call that they’re in jail or worst yet even dead…and you just don’t know what to do.

If this is the case, let me tell you that we are not the first to be faced with this type of problem. We have here in our text a king by the name of Jehoshaphat who can tell us a thing or two about getting into a situation where you just don’t know what to do. Now, among God’s blessings, Jehoshaphat’s obedience and passion for God brought security for his kingdom. King Jehoshaphat was Judah’s fourth king after Solomon’s kingdom was divided. The Chronicler here is quick to tell us if kings were either good or bad as measured by their obedience to God. We are also told of their spiritual influence and effect on the nation.


revivalservices

In 2 Chronicles 17:3 & 4 we are told, “The Lord was with Jehoshaphat, who lived in the old way like his ancestor David. Jehoshaphat didn’t dedicate his life to serving other gods—the Baals. 4 Instead, he dedicated his life to his ancestor’s God and lived by God’s commands. Jehoshaphat did not do what Israel was doing.” This commendation is followed by a statement that God established his kingdom and blessed him with riches and honor (v.5). The king is given a supreme compliment, which says that Jehoshaphat “took great pride in the ways of the Lord and again removed the high places and the Asherim from Judah (v.6). King Jehoshaphat incorporated the law of God, that to obey became his passion and pride. The account goes on (vv. 8-9) to tell how Jehoshaphat sent officials (scribes perhaps) throughout Judah teaching “the book of the law of the Lord.”

Among the good kings of Judah, during this time in history there was no king godlier than Jehoshaphat. He was a good king and there was no doubt that he loved God and made sure that his people knew what it meant to be children of God.

But here is the sad part, when we get to chapter 18 verse (1), “Jehoshaphat was wealthy and honorable and became Ahab’s in-law.” That’s right, the good king Jehoshaphat made a great mistake, he aligned himself and all of Judah with one of the most evil kings in the entire Bible, Ahab. You remember him don’t you? The wicked Baal worshipper whose wife, Jezebel, tried to kill all the prophets of God (1Kg 18:13)!

Jehoshaphat was a good king but he had human traits like the rest us. He allowed the spirit of pride, prestige, and power to take over and later on down the road the prophet Jehu confronted him with this question in 2 Chronicles 19:2, “Why do you help wicked people and love those who hate the Lord? The Lord’s anger is directed toward you because you have done this.”

This reminds me that there is a moral issue in America today, the perverted sin of homosexuality, that has reached the Supreme Court which is a spiritual issue and unfortunately there are Christians standing on both sides and this very same question can be asked. We need to remain obedient to God and not follow the world’s consensus.

Eventually King Jehoshaphat was restored, and when God restores us it doesn’t mean that life from that point will be a bed of roses. As long as there is a devil, there will always be a battle that has to be fought—but here in the text I believe God is reminding the king that the battle was not his, the battle belongs to God Himself. The allied army of the Moabites, Ammonites, and Edomites were invading Judah. You can’t tell me that King Jehoshaphat didn’t wonder a little bit about whether or not he was fully restored and this invasion was punishment for his previous indiscretion against God.

We are all like this I believe, when trouble comes our way we tend go back over a sin that we committed previously and conclude that it must be because of this sin that I’m going through what I’m through. But this is not necessarily true because sometimes God allows trouble to come into our lives to let us know or remind us that He really is the only answer to the trials and tribulations that we face. Sometimes God gives us a test, to see if we have really repented and to see if we really rely on Him and not on ourselves or someone or something else. And what better test than the test of being overwhelmed.

Have you ever been overwhelmed? What do you do when you’re overwhelmed? Do you run to Oprah on the OWN Network to see what she has to say about it? Do you get on Facebook and tell all your frenemies about you’re personal business and gamble with your reputation? Or do you just give up, give in, give way, and give out?

We can take a lesson from Jehoshaphat because the very first thing he decided to do was proclaim a fast. He gathered the people together for prayer, that’s right, he sought the Lord! He prayed a prayer that we ought to pray when trouble comes, O our God (because we’re in this leaky boat together) …we do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.

If only America were to pray this prayer right now, we wouldn’t be trying to redefine the institution of marriage after all these years. We would have God’s solution to allowing babies to be born instead of murdering them with abortion. If we were more concerned with GOD CONTROL than GUN CONTROL we would realize that without God we don’t know what we’re doing or what to do. That’s why David said, “the Lord is my Shepherd” because His is to lead and mine is to follow. It’s not hard, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist, it’s as simple as can be—just follow the Lord and do good!


canada

It turned out that all the king had to do was call on God. He didn’t have to go to the Supreme Court to acquire their collective opinions. He didn’t have watch the Oprah network or seek Dr. Phil’s advice. He didn’t have to go to social media or anything like that. All he had to do was call on God, the Creator of all things, big and small, and that was good enough.

God told King Jehoshaphat to stand still, stillness is a position but it also an attitude. At times, my life is anything but still. I could stand still (motionless) but standing still or sitting still is useless when all the while my mind is running back and forth. I believe that the Lord wants us to calm down and be patient, be still both physically and mentally. I can’t listen to Him and at the same time my mind is uneasy. We have to come the full realization that there are times when doing nothing is better than doing anything. Those are the times when only God can do what is needed. Jehoshaphat knew this secret. The king must have asked himself now what do we have, and said, “Well, all we have is God but the good news is, God is all we need” when we are dealing something that is overwhelming, God is always the answer.

In times of trouble, when you have done all that you can do—stand still and know that He is God. I claim 2 Chronicles 20:17 in 2017 for your life, “You won’t fight this battle. Instead, take your position, stand still, and see the victory of the Lord for you, Judah and Jerusalem. Don’t be frightened or terrified. Tomorrow go out to face them. The Lord is with you.”


Please send me your prayer requests for the battles that you are facing and we will pray with you for the victory that is already yours! To give us your prayer requests email me here.

REVIVAL SERVICES

We have been blessed to preach more than 200 services in 40 churches here in the United States resulting in hundreds of people being saved, filled with the Spirit, healed, delivered and SET ON FIRE FOR GOD!!! God alone knows the impact that these revival services have had in the lives of these people and in the church congregations. The Lord has many exciting revivals in store for the coming year as well. Some of the churches that we will be ministering in cannot afford to have special speakers come to their churches. Your financial support of Revival Fires helps us be able to go to these churches that are in desperate need of a move of God.

EVANGELISTIC CRUSADE IN CUBA

What an awesome move of the Holy Spirit took place during our Cuba for Jesus Crusade. We were honored to give away more than 20,000 full Bibles to people who have never had a Bible and witness thousands of people come to the Lord.

Bibles have been so scarce in Cuba that some preachers have been preaching for years from a borrowed Bible. Most churches have had only one or two Bibles for the entire congregation. We now have the opportunity to change this by providing Bibles for Cuba.

Cuba’s Department of Religious Affairs has approved the distribution of one million Bibles throughout Cuba! In addition, while we were ministering in Cuba, the Cuban Bible Commission president looked at our Truth for Youth Bible and said that all of the 1.4 million teenagers in Cuba need a copy of the Truth for Youth Bible.

Bible distribution in Cuba was stopped in 1969. It just blows my mind to know that we now have this wide open door for Bible distribution and evangelism in Cuba. This is a miracle and God is performing it! The Full Bibles cost our ministry only $5 each to print. Your financial giving helps us continue this important Kingdom project! Please pray for this work as we will be conducting evangelistic crusades in Cuba in 2017.

MINISTRY IN AUSTRALIA
In September we were privileged to preach the Gospel just outside of Melbourne Australia and see a tremendous outpouring of the Holy Spirit. The altars were full in every service as people were giving their hearts to Christ and receiving victory in every way possible. We brought a lot of Truth for Youth Bibles and ran out of them in the very first service! Angie preached to a large group of ladies in a special service and prayed for, and ministered to them in a very special altar service.
We will be back in Australia to preach the Gospel again in September 2017. Please pray for these meeting! Australia is a very secular country and they are in desperate need of a sovereign move of the Holy Spirit.

TRUTH FOR YOUTH BIBLE DISTRIBUTION

So thankful for all of the young people that are giving their hearts to the Lord as a result of receiving the Truth for Youth Bible. We were so blessed to give away thousands of TFY Bibles this year during the National Truth for Youth Bible Week on American Family Radio and in revival services.
Let this bless you…
“While I was suspended from school for making a bomb threat a friend brought me The Truth For Youth® Bible.  The comics were so cool I just couldn’t stop reading them.  By the time I was finished I was hooked on Jesus.  I dedicated my life to Christ.  Thank you for your help.”
– Travis
Friends, the stories and testimonies from 2016 of young people being saved are many! We share them with you because without you, many of these testimonies would not have been possible. You have prayed for us, and many of you have financially supported Revival Fires and it’s ministries.

Thankful for America

THANKFUL FOR AMERICA

founding-fathers-first-prayerMillions of Americans gather around a dining-room table with family members to celebrate Thanksgiving. By doing so we will recognize George Washington’s call in October 1789 to remember “a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed, by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many blessings of Almighty God.”
Since the first time the Pilgrims came to America, Thanksgiving has traditionally been a time to give thanks to the Lord for the blessings in one’s life, specifically the blessing of the harvest.
In spite of this tradition, President Obama has refused to thank God in any of his Thanksgiving speeches. I’m not at all surprised but it is very disappointing! It is as though he is on a mission to wipe God out of public life in America in every possible way.
We should be thankful for our Founding Fathers and that we live in a country that was founded on Biblical principles.
We should have a heart of deep gratitude that the Lord gave us an extraordinary group of men who put together a system for our country, which made us not only the freest, but the most prosperous and productive nation in the world. That’s why so many people want to come to America!
us-american-flag-waving_353535America is the only one of its kind and it is due to the incredible group of men who constructed our Constitution and Declaration of Independence, and we hope we can live up to it and continue to profit by their wealth of wisdom and knowledge.
I believe that the liberal politicians in America are doing the best they can to undercut our Constitution. I think they really don’t believe America is an exceptional country that God has blessed more richly than any other nation in the world.
Not all Americans give thanks to God on Thanksgiving. In fact, not everybody respects the holiday. Robert Jensen, a journalism professor at the University of Texas at Austin, wrote that Thanksgiving is a “white-supremacist holiday” that should be replaced with a “National Day of Atonement” for the “genocide” of Native Americans. This rewriting of American history is being spewed in many of our liberal Universities!
Recently, MSNBC host Ronan Farrow tweeted: “Thanksgiving: because genocide is a lot more festive 392 years after the fact.” I’m troubled that there are people who believe Thanksgiving should be a source of white guilt.
us-constitutionSt. Paul best described America’s liberal news media and politicians in Romans 1:22 when he said, “Thinking themselves to be wise they became as fools.”
I’m sorry if they think religion and belief in God is a white supremacist idea but God has always played a big role in American political and social life. Although God has richly blessed the nation, Americans still need to fight to hold onto those blessings.
We have a great deal to be thankful for, because we have the freest and the most prosperous country in the history of the world! As Christians we need to work harder to protect it and retain it and make sure that we hang on to the blessings that we were given when our Constitution was written.
As we celebrate Thanksgiving this year let’s remember to be thankful for the freedoms that we enjoy in our nation.

FANNING THE FLAMES

img_3211I have been proclaiming for the past several months that we are in the process of a national spiritual awakening. I have personally seen more hunger to ‘pursue the Lord intensely’ than ever before. And God has been answering the cry of His children for MORE of Him!
Fanned by a prompting of the Holy Ghost, we have been ratcheting up our efforts, as the flames of intercession are leading us to another Pentecost, a Great Spiritual Awakening. One of the most important prayer movements in the history of our nation has begun.
img_3115Though most estimates show at least $3 billion has been spent on the 2016 presidential election (some say it could be as much as $10 billion), don’t make the mistake of believing expensive campaigns will determine its outcome. God is allowing the actions–or lack thereof–of the Church to cast the deciding vote. Voting correctly at the polls is important, but humble hearts of repentance and passionate cries of prayer have the ultimate power to heal and restore America.
For several years now, I have known that young people would play a significant role in this process. Now is that time. Among ON FIRE FOR GOD young people in America God is raising up a GIDEON ARMY!
Prayer and repentance begins in the process of deliverance and transformation of a nation. But in the process, like with the children of Moses, the people cry out, God hears, God acknowledges and Exodus 2:23-24 says God heard, God remembered and then God authorized and decreed that the deliverance would begin. So He raised up a prophet by the name of Moses and He sends Moses over to be the deliverer, and he leads them to journey from Egypt to Canaan…to the Jordan River.
cuba-marking-bible-no-borderIt took their warfare and Joshua and the army to take them in. And just like in Gideon, the people cried out. In Judges the 6th chapter the people had cried out for deliverance. The enemy was coming to take everything they had. In Judges 6 they took their cattle, their crops, everything. After seven years, they finally cried out to God. I don’t know why it took them seven years to get desperate enough to cry out to God, but they finally did, and it says that the next thing that happened is that God sent a prophet. The prophet prophesied to them and said from the Lord, “Look, I’ve done all this deliverance for your forefathers but could not do it for you, because you never trusted Me. You have not looked to Me, you looked to your false gods and other things. Now return to Me. I’ll deliver you.”
preaching-ward-arThen God finds a man by the name of Gideon and raised him up. Then Gideon raises up an army and the army brings their deliverance and brings their transformation.
This is where we are right now. We must get the men, women of God in place to take back what the devil has stolen by helping us provide Truth for Youth Bibles for young people all across America. We are raising up an army of teenagers who are going on their school campuses giving the Word of God to their friends and going to war in the spirit realm and cutting off the principalities and powers that are motivating evil and directing young people.
img_4786We God’s people need to be the air force and make a no-fly zone over America’s public schools. The principalities and powers are what’s having a devastating impact on the thinking of evil men and the liberal politicians influencing the public school systems of our nation. It’s time for the army of the Lord to be activated into an offensive, aggressive warfare.
In Canaan there was constant battle for possessing and procuring God’s promises. Regardless of whether we have Democrats or Republicans in control of the White House, Senate and Supreme Court, the Church is going to become militant and aggressive in coming against the powers of Hell. God is raising up an army of influencers for the Kingdom.
We continue to cry out to God and make nation-rescuing appeals to heaven on behalf of the youth of our nation and provide Truth for Youth  Bibles for every young person in America.

single September evening, in Clayton, Australia, 16-year-old Jack Williams prayers were answered.

 



PLEASE PRAY FOR THE FOLLOWING AREAS OF OUR MINISTRY OUTREACHES:
