“Be glad for this reason, heavens and those who live in them. How horrible it is for the earth and the sea because the devil has come down to them with fierce anger, knowing that he has little time left.” (Revelation 12:12).

God’s Word is very clear that in the last days, the church will face the fury of Satan. The devil is aware that “he has little time left” and he’s determined to destroy families, Christian and non-Christians. With that in mind, “Keep your mind clear, and be alert. Your opponent the devil is prowling around like a roaring lion as he looks for someone to devour. (1 Peter 5:8).

I am convinced that Satan is targeting to destroy families at a higher level of intensity than ever before. He is roaring like a vicious lion attacking the family to devour them. He is determined to obliterate marriages, children, and setting families in opposition to each other. The devil’s final aim is to destroy every family.

The Lord described this satanic agenda in John 8:44, “The devil was a murderer from the beginning”. The devil had a destructive plan even against the very first family. It was Satan who came into Cain and convinced him to kill his brother, Abel.

And this murderer is still at work. The past few years reveal this in horrific ways. On May 24, the devil took hold of a crazed lone gunman and drove them into raging destruction. When the young man stormed into Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, TX on a hellish killing spree, the world was stunned. He shot and killed nineteen children and two teachers at point-blank range. Who but the devil himself could have possessed him to do this?

I think of the destruction brought on the families of both the victims and the killers. There have been suicides, mental breakdowns, divorces, traumatized siblings. The devastation of that horrific violent act still reverberates beyond belief. And the families and peers of all connected will grieve for a lifetime. Consider the ravages that are never talked about in this devastating tragedy. The suffering of the families, the grief of the other students— this was horrific and destructive. Only the devil could be responsible for a young man murdering these precious, innocent children, for no apparent reason?

This horrible act tormenting these families today is beyond belief. And this Ulvalde tragedy example I’ve referenced is just one of many examples of what is taking place in our nation. Across the entire world, Satan is bringing devastation. He plans to continue until he has destroyed each household in his way.

A lot of Christian families have been devastated by destruction, sadness and disaster. And the evil devastation has manifested itself in a lot of ways: through families splitting, rebellious children, many addictions. And yet, the end result is inevitably the same: a once-healthy family is shredded and torn apart.


I have witnessed this firsthand for more than 36 years of ministry, as young people in school and incarcerated in juvenile facilities, have received Truth for Youth Bibles for the first time. It has been so encouraging to witness these anguished young people getting miraculously saved and delivered from their bondage. The Lord has transformed many of them into new creations.

One of the most certain indications of a true to life salvation has been when a young person looks back to see what the devil has taken from them. They cry out as they clutch their Truth for Youth Bible. Addicted to drugs, pornography or sex, they don’t care about turning their back on their family. The only thing they were concerned about was getting their next drink, smoking their next joint, popping their next pill, looking at their next porn site or taking advantage of another unsuspecting young lady. However, now they weep profusely over what they have lost.

One young man in a juvenile facility pointed to a picture, “Pastor Tim, that was my girlfriend. She loved me, and I loved her. I realize now that I was using her and took advantage of her so that I could fulfill my own selfish desires. But I don’t know where she is now. Look at what I lost…”

It is horrific. In those times, you are aware of the devils devastating influence on these families. Certainly, the biggest devastation is never about the addicts’ crippling effect on their bodies or their blank expression. Instead, it is about what has been taken from them: an education, a relationship, their childhood, a spouse, a child, a future. What about the children of the adults whose lives have been devastated by sin: a chance to be raised in a godly home, to know the love of Jesus, to be loved and taken care of by loving parents, to be taught by example to live for Jesus.

It is wonderful that a lot of these former addicts have been blessed by God with restored families. Or, in some cases, they have found a new family in the church body they have plugged into. But I still grieve with them over the destruction they have experienced.

It is God’s desire for you to “Rescue Your Family From Devastation.” Here is what the Holy Spirit has shown me with regard to this. In any troubled home, somebody has to get the attention of the Lord Jesus Christ. There comes a time when certain family circumstances are beyond human hope. No counselor, no doctor or medicine, or anything else can do the job. The situation has become humanly impossible. The only hope is a parting of the Red Sea miracle, or else it will end in mass devastation.


It is then, that the only hope left is for somebody to get the attention of the Lord. Someone has to get God’s attention. It doesn’t make any difference who it is, a mom, a dad, a brother, a sister, a son or daughter. That individual has to make it a priority to get the attention of almighty God! And that individual has to determine, “I’m not leaving until I hear from God. He has to tell me, ‘It’s done. Now, go your way.'”

In John 4:46 “A government official was in Cana. His son was sick in Capernaum”. This was a very distinguished family, maybe even royalty. A spirit of death hung over the home, as the family tended to their son that was at deaths door. There may have been aunts and uncles, or grandparents, or other children in the home. And we’re told the whole household believed, including the servants. John 4:53 says, ”(The father) believed, and his whole house”.

There was somebody in that needy family that knew who Jesus was, and was aware of His healing power. One way or another, word managed to get to this family that Jesus was about twenty-five  miles away in Cana. Willing to do whatever it takes, this concerned dad made a decision to get through to the Jesus. John 4:47 says, “When this man heard that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judea, he went to him and begged him to come and heal his son, who was close to death.”

Through the many years on the evangelistic field, I’ll have a mom or a dad come to me weeping over a devastation situation with a son or a daughter that has gone the wayward way of the world. Many times, the parent is the last hope that the family has to get the attention of the Lord. They will take on the responsibility to fervently pray. They will fervently pray until Jesus brings the deliverance. They will enlist others to pray with them, declaring, “It’s beyond the point of hope for us. We have to have a miracle.”

The government official in John 4 got through to Jesus because he was determined to. The Bible says in John 4:47 that he “begged (Jesus) that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death”. What a spectacular depiction of intercession. This dad put everything in his life on hold to get the attention of Jesus to provide a word.

The Lord responded to him in John 4:48, “Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will never believe.” What was the Lord saying? He was telling this government official that a miraculous deliverance wasn’t his most pressing need. To the contrary, the most important need this man had was his faith. Use your imagination, the Lord could have easily traveled to this mans home and spoke directly to the sickness in this boys body and commanded it to leave. If Jesus would have done this, all that this troubled family would have known of Jesus was that He was a healer.

The Lord wanted more for this individual and his family. The Lord wanted to reveal to them that He was God in the flesh. So he declared to the government official, in essence, “Do you believe it is God you are asking for this need to be met? Do you believe I am the Christ, the Savior of the world?” The government official answered in John 4:49, “Sir, come with me before my little boy dies.” No doubt, Jesus recognized faith in this man. It was almost as though Jesus was saying, “He believes I’m God in the flesh.” Because then the Lord said to him in John 4:50, “Go home. Your son will live.”


It is ashamed, but a lot of Christians give up before they ever hear from the Lord. However, this individual went away in faith. What was the determining factor? This individual had received a word from Jesus. He had aggressively pursued the Lord and waited on Him with faith believing. He was not going to leave until he got what he came there for. John 4:50, “The man believed what Jesus told him and left. the word”.

As believers we are to win the lost and many believers make this a priority. we cry out to God for revival, for our lost neighbors, our lost city, our nation, and our world. All of this is extremely important. However, are you fervently and faithfully praying for your family members that are not in right relationship with the Lord? Praying for your family that is not saved should be a major priority in your life. Think about it, the responsibility for praying for your family that is not serving the Lord, falls on those who God is listening to, that are close enough to Him to petition Him on their behalf. Listen, if that isn’t you, then who is it? If you aren’t praying for your families salvation then who is?

Perhaps you say, “I’ve talked to my children about the Lord for years. I’ve lived my life as an example in front of them. My family knows that I am serving the Lord. I just need to leave them in the Lords hands.” It is true that we should leave our unsaved family members in the Lord’s hands. However, leaving them in the Lord’s hands doesn’t continue to fervently pray for them. If we cease to pray for their salvation, we are saying, “This is so hopeless that I’m not even going to pray for them anymore.”

Trusting the Lord means doing just the opposite. If we absolutely trust God for their salvation and deliverance, we will fervently cry out to Jesus like the government official did, “Please, Jesus, come now. Act quickly, before my loved one is lost forever.” Only aggressive, fervent praying can overcome the devil’s devastating aims to destroy our family. Wimpy praying will not break down the devil’s strategies. We have to be shaken out of our own concerns and get serious about aggressive and fervent praying until His word comes.

When the Lord was in Tyre and Sidon, “A Canaanite woman from that territory came to him and began to shout, “Have mercy on me, Lord, Son of David! My daughter is grievously vexed by a demon.” (Matthew 15:22). The devil had moved into this woman’s house and possessed her child. The word for “grievously” here comes from a Greek word that means depraved. The girl was vile, wicked, being driven by the devil.

Understand that this mom was not wicked. Certainly she was a Gentile, she believed. She even called Jesus, “Lord, son of David.” She was declaring, “I know you are the Savior, God’s Messiah.” So you have to ask yourself, how does the devil gain access to the son or daughter of a devout Christian? How can Satan possess a son or daughter in a believer’s home?

If you are reading this, most likely you are a Christian parent. You have raised your children in the house of God and you have done your very best to show your children how to live for God. But now, after years of faithfully attending Sunday school and hearing anointed sermons in church, your child has become apathetic toward the things of God. They don’t care about serving the Lord anymore. And you ask, “God, how could this be?”


I’ve witnessed this in many ministers homes. Children that were raised in Christian homes, but somehow they got away from God. Their lives began to be driven by demonic powers. And they grew addicted to drugs, alcohol, pornography, prostitution.

You may be thinking, “I’m glad that isn’t my child. My children are great. I have raised my children in the fear of God. They are aware of what is right and wrong. They may not be on fire for Jesus, but at least they’re not living in the world.”

If that is the case for you, you should be thankful that your child is not living worldly. But you need to also fervently pray that your children will not be lukewarm toward the Lord too. According to the Lord himself, being lukewarm is as terrible a condition as being demonically oppressed. When Christ warned in Revelation 3, “I will spew you out of my mouth,” he wasn’t talking to the alcoholic. He was speaking directly to lukewarm Christians. Jesus knows that an indifferent spirit can draw any Christian into demonic activity from hell.

Perhaps your child is courteous, kind, and well-behaved. Your children may not hang out with the wrong crowd. They may respect their elders and live morally upright. But if they are not wholehearted in love with Jesus — if they’re just drifting along spiritually — they are in danger. You see, children that are raised in a Christian home are already a prime target of the devil. Satan is pursuing children in homes that are most fervent in their love for the Lord. If your children are lukewarm, it has made the devils job easier. Satan delights over how easy it is to bring your child into the chains of sin.

Even devout believers — including ministers — can be blind to the snare the devil has put out for their children that are indifferent toward the things of God. The devil is always searching to remove even a little bit of spiritual fervency that is in them. Christian parents, I charge you before God, do not allow Satan to have your child. Every day, cry out to God on behalf of your children’s spiritual well being. The Lord has equipped you with the weapon of prayer to shake them out of being apathetic and indifferent toward God.

The lady with the depraved child aggressively persisted in pursuing the Lord. After a period of time, the disciples insisted, “Lord, send her away, get rid of her. She won’t stop bothering us.” Note Jesus’ response to the woman’s pleas in Matthew 15:23, “He answered her not a word”. Apparently, Christ ignored the whole situation. Why would he do this? We know our Lord has never turned a deaf ear to the cry of any sincere seeker.

The truth is, Jesus was fully aware that this woman’s story would be told to every future generation. And Jesus wanted to give a revelation to all who would read it. So, he tested the aggressiveness of this woman’s faith. When he did get around to speaking to her, he said in Matthew 15:24, “I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel”. Jesus was telling her, “I came for the salvation of the Jews. Why should I waste their gospel on a Gentile?”

Truth is, a lot of us would have been offended and left immediately with this kind of response. But this woman dug her heals in. Her child’s condition was a matter of life and death to her. And she wasn’t going to give the Lord any peace until He gave her what she came for.


Let me ask you, how often do you give up on what you are praying for? How often have you grown weary and reasoned, “I have already brought it before the Lord and nothing happened.” Was it a matter of life and death to you? Did you truly seek the Lord with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, knowing there was no other source?

Think about this ladies response. This woman didn’t belly ache or point an accusing finger, saying, “Why are you denying me, Jesus?” The Bible says that she did just the opposite in Matthew 15:25, “Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me”.

The next thing Jesus says is hard to swallow. Once again, Jesus dismissed this lady. Except this time it has the appearance that he was down right rude to her. He said in Matthew 15:26, “It’s not right to take the children’s food and throw it to the dogs.”.

The Jewish believers of that day considered Gentiles to be on the same level as dogs in God’s view. Obviously, Jesus knew that wasn’t true; he would not make a racial slur at any child of God Almighty. However, Jesus was aware that this woman knew what the Jews’ attitude toward Gentiles was. So Jesus was testing her…again.

With perseverance this momma said in Matthew 15:27, “You’re right, Lord. But even the dogs eat scraps that fall from their masters’ tables”. What a powerful response. This persistent momma was not going to relent in her pursuit of Jesus. And the Lord commended her for it. Jesus said to her in Matthew 15:28, “Woman, you have strong faith! What you wanted will be done for you.” At that moment her daughter was cured.”.

Friend, don’t settle for the crumbs. God has promised us all of the grace and mercy we need for everything you are going through right now. And that includes every attack against your family and children, that are serving the Lord or not serving the Lord! God has given us an invitation to approach the Lord’s throne boldly, with confidence. God wants us to bring to Him every need we have. It doesn’t matter if it is a rebellious son or daughter or a parent that doesn’t believe in God. You might not witness all of your family members become Christians. However we can put up major roadblocks around them, to stop their race to hell. Fervently pray down conviction on them, and pray up protective hedges around them. You can also fervently pray believer’s into their pathway to witness to them.

However, I am certain that none of this will ever take place if we throw in the towel and give up. We may try to make ourselves believe that we have to take the matter on faith now and just leave it in God’s hands. However, sometimes that is just a cop out. Certainly we need to leave it in God’s hands. A part of leaving your situation in God’s hands is you continually bombarding Heaven with fervent, fiery prayer for your family! God wants you to continually pour out your spiritual sweat and fervently intercede for your loved ones’ souls to be saved.


On a beautiful sunny day, several years ago our family was in a boat on the lake in Oklahoma. Our youngest daughter Mikalen and me were in the water with life jackets on just enjoying ourselves. All of a sudden a storm came seemingly from no where and the wind began to aggressively push us away from the boat. We tried with all of our might to swim toward the boat but it was seemingly impossible! However, for the sake of my child, I was determined to rescue my daughter from the devastation of that storm and get her to safety, whatever it took! Thankfully, totally exhausted, I was able to get Mikalen safely back on the boat. You have to pray for God to rescue your family from devastation, with that same tenacity and determination.

I compel you to make this your prayer: “Lord, if one of my family members is lost, it won’t be because I did not fervently pray for their salvation. It won’t be because I took for granted your Holy Spirit’s work in their lives. And it won’t be because I don’t cry out to you for their salvation. Whatever it takes, I’m going to war in prayer for their salvation until one of us goes into eternity. Don’t let them leave this earth without being in right relationship with you.”

Send me the names of your unsaved family and we will pray with you for their salvation!



Here is one of thousands of letters that we receive from young people on a regular basis:

To whom it may concern, I was struggling with deep depression and I had decided to kill myself. I figured nothing could be any worse than what I was already going through. A friend called and said he had something special he wanted to give me and asked if he could come over to my house and that he needed to see me immediately. He sounded like it was so important that I told him he could. When he got there he said, “I felt like the Lord wanted me to give this to you.” And he held out a Truth for Youth Bible. He hugged me and left.

I sat down read all of the comic stories. One of them was on the subject of suicide. I knew God was speaking to me. I called my friend and told him what I was struggling with. He came back over, prayed for me and talked to me about the Lord. I gave my life to Jesus. Thank you for the Truth for Youth Bible. John P.

The Truth for Youth Bible consist of the entire New Testament, along with 100 pages of powerful comic stories in the front, on the subjects of: cutting, sexting, bullying, suicide, sexual purity, witchcraft, drugs, drunkenness, peer pressure, homosexuality, abortion, honor, pornography, evolution, pluralism and school violence.


This is one of many letters that we receive on a regular basis:

Dear Pastor Tim Todd, The very first Bible I have ever owned is the Truth for Youth Bible that was given to me by one of the officers here. I made a mess of my life with drugs and alcohol then I was put into prison for armed burglary. Your comic stories are so easy to read and they have helped me so much. From reading your Truth for Youth Bible I understand that Jesus really does love me even though I got into all of this trouble. I have made a decision to serve the Lord. Thank you for your help. Stephen J.

“And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, ‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: 15 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. Revelation 3:14-18

As a little boy I would have severely painful migraine headaches. Pulsating pain would hit me like an oncoming freight train. With every beat of my heart, icepick-like pain would drive deeper into my skull. It was excruciating. Agonizing. Torturing. Massive migraines would strike me and leave me paralyzed and immobilized for hours at a time. However, the most debilitating part would be the onslaught of nausea. My impaled stomach would become so upset, it felt like an angry volcano erupting.

When I would wake up with the headache, my mom would try to hold the pain off with Anacin pain relievers. But I eventually would succumb to its agonizing grip, which overpowered me. Squirming in bed, I would unsuccessfully try to sleep it off. I would eventually throw up and become so weak that I would collapse from sheer exhaustion. In a few hours I would wake up, only to throw up again. What would make me so sick? My mom was convinced that she could tell when it was going to rain because I would get a migraine just hours before a storm. Those are some of the most painful childhood memories I have.

Jesus told the Laodicean Church “because you are lukewarm…I will vomit you out of My mouth.” What is it about the Church that makes God sick, nauseated, makes Him want to throw up? What is it about His people that could possibly cause Him to have such a violent reaction? Lukewarmness. Spiritual indifference in the Church makes Christ want to throw up. Apathy makes our Lord ill. Lukewarm preaching. Indifferent worship. Bland prayer. Stale fellowship. Insipid evangelism. It all makes Christ sick!

Not just on Sunday. But Monday through Saturday, as well. When our lives, once on fire for Him, cool off into a state of lukewarmness, it makes Jesus nauseated and sick to His stomach, making Him want to throw up. It’s all provoked by our sin of lukewarmness. The sin of being spiritually half in, half out. The sin of yawning in Christ face with our indifference toward His Grace. The sin of being bored with walking in close intimacy to God. It makes Christ sick! He can’t stomach it! Half-hearted devotion is absolutely revolting to Him! Jesus warns that He will vomit any lukewarm church from His mouth. This is a serious call to spiritual fervency, heart devotion, and holy zeal. Christ is commanding us to be on fire for Him, not lukewarm. That’s what America needs to see!

Laodicea was affluent and prosperous. The worlds of commerce, manufacturing, and medicine all came together to make this a very wealthy city. Laodicea occupied a critical juncture on the major highway that ran from Ephesus to Phrygia. In addition, the road from Pergamum and Sardis crossed this route here in Laodicea. It was the most prosperous of a tri-city that consisted of Colossae, Hierapolis and Laodicea.


Laodicea refused government help to rebuild when the devastating earthquake in 60 A.D. leveled their city and the surrounding cities. Laodicea even contributed a massive amount of money to other cities to help them rebuild. Large amounts of gold, silver and Roman currency were kept there since they were considered a great financial center in that part of the world.

Laodicea was a manufacturing hub where factories were famous for making shiny, black wool that would be woven into expensive clothing. They were a fashion-conscious city with the most up to date styles. They were also the seat of a famous medical center with a leading school of medicine. A well known eye salve that helped cure eye diseases was created by doctors here. Laodicea was a thriving, prosperous city! The only draw back was its water supply. As the city grew they had to import water from outside sources such as underground aqueducts from Colossae and Hierapolis. Laodicea was a growing, prosperous, affluent, materialistic, high-fashion, self-sufficient, self-made city on the rise much like Dallas, TX.

It has the appearance that the church was being influenced by the prosperous culture of Laodicea. The previous churches were first commended, but not the Laodicean church. Jesus was very direct with a strong rebuke as He addressed this church. They were vain, self-absorbed, self-confident, self-satisfied, self-deceived. I’m sure they thought the Lord was going to pour the praises on thick. To the contrary, they received the most severe, harsh reprimand of all of the churches. No commendations. No compliments. Jesus gave them a devastating assessment.

When Jesus said, “I know your works”, He was saying, “I have intimate knowledge of precisely where you are as a church.” From without, the Laodicean church looked extremely successful. Giving, attendance, and activities were at an all time high. On todays standards they would have had the most cutting edge facilities, lights, social media and television outreach. However, the Lord saw a church that was not hot or cold. Just something in-between, lukewarm. Jesus said, “I’d rather you be cold or hot. Anything but lukewarm. Get hot or get cold. Just don’t be lukewarm!”

Some of the believers in the Laodicean church had once been on fire for God. These were individuals that had genuinely been saved but had become worldly. At one time they were hot for Christ, but they had cooled off and adapted to the environment around them. They were now room temperature. Because of the world’s influence, they had cooled off in their love for Jesus. They had become carnal and worldly…lukewarm.


Others in the Laodicean church had never been born again. They professed to know Christ, but they had never truly been born again. Their name was in the church role but not in the Lambs book of Life. They were cold, unsaved, and gradually adapted to the environment in the church. While at church functions they warmed up to the excitement of the true believers. They were lukewarm, but not saved.

This is one of the biggest problems in the church in America today. I’m afraid that we have filled many of our churches with unregenerated people. People that have never truly been born again. Unregenerated, board members, elders, deacons, even preachers, God help us! Judases among real Christians. Chaff among the wheat.

In one of our revivals in Alabama, a lady ran to the altar gave her life to Jesus Christ. She stayed on her knees weeping with a heart of repentance until almost everyone else had gone home. In the following service she said, “Brother Todd, I was raised in a Methodist Church. I’ve taught Sunday school for more than 20 years. But never one time did our pastor ever say anything about being born again.” She said, “Last night when I got up off of my knees from the altar I knew that Jesus Christ had washed my sins away with His blood and He now owns me lock stock and barrel!”

A top priority of the church has got to be the spiritual well-being of those that are already attending church. Many who say, “Lord, Lord” are on the broad road to hell!

There were many in the Laodicean church that were lukewarm. Some had been hot but were now lukewarm. Some had been cold but were also lukewarm. Both looked and sounded the same. Just enough warmth to get to church, but not enough warmth to be in right relationship with Jesus. Addressing the problem directly, Jesus said, “I know your works, that you are neither cold or hot. You’re right in the middle. You’re lukewarm. I wish that you were cold or hot.” Our nation needs to see the church on fire!


Jesus said that if you are lukewarm that He will vomit you out of His mouth. Lukewarmness makes God sick! That is strong, crude, shocking language, but it’s true! God is saying, “When you are indifferent and lukewarm about Me, you make Me sick to My stomach.” Let that settle down in your heart.

God loves us so much that He gave His only son to die on the cross. When we turn our backs on Him, we callously yawn in His face. His response to that is, “You make me want to throw up! Vomit! Puke! You are obnoxious to me! You bring a sickening effect to the very pit of my stomach!” Lukewarmness brings about a violent reaction from God.

Sweet tea is very popular here in Louisiana. When we drink tea we want it to be hot or cold. Just not lukewarm. Iced tea is great! Hot tea is great! But lukewarm tea is sickening! Lukewarm tea is nauseating!

Jesus is compelling His bride, “Quit riding the fence.” He said, “He that is not with me is against me, and He that gathers not unto me scatters abroad” Matthew 12:30 “No man can serve two masters” Matthew 6:24 Strong words from a passionate Lord.

Are you lukewarm, indifferent, apathetical? Don’t fall prey to lukewarmness in your devotion to God. Keep your daily personal prayer time and devotion to reading and studying His Word hot and on fire! Keep your church attendance hot and on fire for God! Keep your soul winning hot and on fire for God!

I’m convinced that one of the greatest needs of the church is to be totally consumed with a red hot fire for God! Jesus is telling us, “Fan the flames of fire in your daily spiritual walk with Me!” America, the world, is in desperate need of witnessing the reality of our love for Christ!

A church building caught fire. The entire community was trying to put the flames out. The fire had engulfed the building and there was no hope. In the crowd of people there was a man that they’d been trying to get to church for years. One of the deacons smirked and said to him, “John, we haven’t seen you at church in a long time.” John said, “I haven’t seen this church on fire in a long time.”

I believe, that’s what America and the world needs to see. The church of our Lord Jesus Christ on fire! Not lukewarm, indifferent, and apathetical. But a church with the red-hot love for Jesus!



Please pray with us for the Kingdom success of the 22nd Annual National Truth for Youth Bible Week on American Family Radio scheduled August 8-12. We will be giving thousands of Truth for Youth (TFY) Bibles to Christian young people that commit to give them to unsaved friends in school.

I believe Jesus Christ is the only hope for all of the hopelessness among so many young people in America! If we want to bring America back to God, we need to reach a generation of youth!

To date, we have given away more than 2.7 million TFY Bibles to teenagers and have received more than 25,000 decision cards from young people that have given their life to Jesus Christ! We are believing God for this years project to be more fruitful than all of the previous years.



As we continue to give Bibles away at the border we are witnessing THOUSANDS of these precious young people give their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ! (Most of these children are coming from Guatemala, El Salvador, Venezuela and Mexico.) Since October, more than 85,000 unaccompanied youth have crossed into America illegally. That’s enough young people to fill the entire Dallas Cowboy’s stadium! They all need Jesus! And they all need Bibles!


Teenagers in America’s prisons and jails many times feel overlooked. Revival Fires has made it a priority to be sure they are given a copy of the Truth for Youth Bible and realize their value in Christ. With the distribution of Bibles to these incarcerated youth the Lord becomes a steady voice in their lives.

Most of these teenagers are facing adverse situations such as a lack of family stability, relational trauma, and gang violence. It is during these moments of crisis, the Truth for Youth Bible is able to minister to these youth in a very personal way. The Truth for Youth offers true hope, the only hope, in their lives. That Hope is a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ!



Please pray as Revival Fires continues to provide full Bibles and Truth for Youth Bibles for the precious children, young people and adults that have never had a Bible. In most of our homes we have several Bibles. In most homes in Cuba, there are NO Bibles. We are running through this open door to give Bibles to the people of Cuba, while this door is open for the Gospel!

We are running through this open door to give Bibles to the people of Cuba, while this door is open for the Gospel! Thank you for your prayers!


Revival Fires has provided more than 300,000 Bibles for our U.S. Troops.

As we celebrate the birth of America, let us remember and appreciate the freedoms we enjoy as a direct result of the many sacrifices that our men and women in the armed forces have made.

Please continue to pray as we continue to provide Bibles for our U.S. Military.


As we continue to travel across America preaching revival services please continue to pray for us! We are witnessing more people come to the Lord, filled with the Spirit, healed, delivered and set on fire for God, than ever before! Pray for the Kingdom success of these services, spiritual strength and a harvest of souls in each church body. And with gasoline prices at an all time high pray for supernatural provision.

You know the times in which we are living. It’s time for you to wake up. Our salvation is nearer now than when we first became believers. Romans 13:11 GWT

For more than 35 years now, I have labored in Christian ministry across America. I have, by the grace of God, preached the message of Jesus Christ and the cross of Calvary around the world. By the miracle of television and radio I have preached the truth of God’s Word in millions of America’s homes. I have been honored to distribute more than 2.7 million Truth for Youth Bibles to young people in our nation that have given them to their friends in public school that are not saved, resulting in more than 25,000, that we know of, giving their lives to Christ. I have preached evangelistic crusades in stadiums in third world countries where crowds traveled for several days and gathered hours in advance to hear the answers their souls longed for. I have been privileged to feed the hungry, teach the young, influence the powerful, and stand for righteousness in our nation.

However, this is not why I share what I’m going to share in this months message for our Revival Fires Newsletter. I share this message because in the midst of the chaos in America: senseless school shootings, our woke society, politically correct, hatred for law enforcement, dishonest politicians, rigged elections and everything else, I believe the possibilities for our nation are so great. I believe that when the crisis in America are so pressing, and the voices of wisdom in America seem so few, that for God’s people not to speak up, would be a violation of sacred trust. Our nation has the potential to become what our forefathers dreamed. But if this is true, it is no wonder that this dream is being attacked without, and taken apart from within. It is time to reclaim our nation, and there is much to be gained by a return to the discarded values of the past. I believe it is time to bring America back to the just, compassionate, noble society she was meant to be.

It is evident that the founding faith of our nation has been driven from the marketplace of ideas. The very words of our Founding Fathers intended to protect faith in America are now being used to try to destroy it. The very same First Amendment of our Constitution that prohibits government from restricting belief has been used to drive Christianity from the national public square. We are told that our society ought to be secular: no prayer or Bibles in our schools; no God in our pledges; no faith in our politics. And all this we are to accept from the hands of activist liberal judges who repeatedly overturn the will of the people as expressed through their elected representatives.


We must stand up and speak out and take our nation back! I will aggressively rail against the lie that proclaims that the God of Christianity and the god of Islam are one in the same. They are not! I will sound the alarm about the homosexual agenda, about Hollywood’s perversion of love and sex, and about the murder of the old and the unborn. It is time for God’s people to declare that the media’s high-tech persecution of our faith in Jesus Christ is not acceptable. It is time for God’s people to stand up and fight until the very schools that our tax dollars support are no longer the enemies of everything we want our children to be taught.

The God haters already call us religious, fanatical, Bible thumping, complainers. They say that we only care about protecting our beliefs, but that we could care less about our society as a whole. I believe the God haters have misjudged God’s people. They do not understand that we serve a risen savior that paid the ultimate price for our salvation and that we will not sit idly by while they take America to hell.

I am speaking to the church. Even though I am speaking to the broader matters of our nation, I am speaking to the church. I know that the church has the solution to the problems facing our nation. The church of our Lord Jesus Christ has what we need to transform America. God has armed us with every spiritual tool we need to break the chains that have our nation in bondage. I bring this to you today because God tells us in 1 Peter 4:17 that, judgement begins in the house of God. I want to address several areas:

IS RACISM A SIN? Racism absolutely is a sin! God’s people cannot sit idly by in the face of the rushing tide of racial hatred in our land. It is a serious indictment of those who claim to be Christians and yet most of our churches on Sunday morning are the most racially segregated time in America. It is an indictment of our culture that young black males are more likely to be shot, imprisoned, unemployed, or killed by disease than any other group in America. Statistics reveal that racial hatred is not on the decline among youth in America; it is on the rise. This is not a Democrat or Republican issue. This is a spiritual issue. This is an issue for Christian’s who believe that America was built on the foundation of the Word of God that clearly teaches us that we should look at the content of a man’s character instead of the color of his skin.

IS MATERIALISM A SIN? Materialism (idolatry) absolutely is a sin and has crept into the church! It is time for God’s people to speak up and speak out in confronting the materialism that has engulfed our society, including many that claim to be Christians. We are drowning in a river of cultural debt. We are drowning in an unrestrained lust for more high-tech toys. The more we have, the more we want, and it is robbing us of peace, robbing us of community, and robbing us of any higher meaning for our lives. The things we demand and the debt we are willing to tolerate to have them are creating a bondage our children and our grandchildren will be forced to confront decades from now. This is as true for the nation as it is true for the family.

DOES GOD LOVE THE HOMOSEXUAL? Of course He does. I believe that the character of American society and life is being sorely tested by an astonishing trend in the homosexual community. It is a trend that could very well transform our culture. Homosexual and lesbian couples are getting married in surprising large numbers. Of course, the popular myth is that homosexuals are born with their same-sex attractions. It argues that they cannot change. It asserts that their sexual orientation is determined biologically. I have testimonials from many youth that were trapped in the bondage of homosexuality and lesbianism, but were gloriously set free by the power of the Holy Spirit, after receiving a copy of the Truth for Youth Bible, and surrendering their life to Jesus Christ! (The Truth for Youth Bible has a powerful comic story dealing with the truth about homosexuality, titled, BORN THAT WAY).

One former homosexual said, “The homosexual community now has a back door as wide as the broadside of a barn – and people are pouring through it in the church and into healthy families.” Former homosexuals, transsexuals, bisexuals, and lesbians who have left their promiscuous lifestyles to embrace traditional values, the Christian faith, and ordinary family life is increasing every day. Support groups are in every major city across the country.

There is no denying the fact that gays aren’t truly gay at all. Remember, the original definition of the word gay had no homosexual orientation. Instead, it was a word that meant “to be happy and carefree.” Homosexuals are anything but happy and carefree. In fact, indications are that they are a very sad group of people. According to every scientific, medical, and sociological study of the homosexual community, the everyday world of the American homosexual is a very unhappy world. The only way they will truly be happy is to completely surrender their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ.


The radical homosexual movement and the liberal news media carrying the water for them say that is is not politically correct to oppose homosexuality. They say that you can’t legislate morality. Really? Murder is against the law because we recognize that the premeditated killing of another human being is a violation of a very basic and fundamental moral principle – a moral principle that we all hold dear: the sanctity of human life. Stealing is against the law because we recognize that taking someone else’s belongings without permission is a breach of another one of our most basic and fundamental ethical standards: private property. The truth is, all law is a moral or ethical idea enforced by the civil government.

So the real question is not, “Should we legislate morality: Instead, it is, “Whose morality should we legislate?” The real question is, “What moral standard will we use when we legislate?” In America, it appears that we are legislating immorality more than anything else. As a believer, we cannot welcome the brave new world that we live in of   political correctness run amok. At this critical place in American history and life, we are facing an extraordinary test of character. Will we bend our knee to the gods of sexual perversion and political correctness? Will we give credence to the unhappy prophets of the homosexual agenda? Or will we continue to offer the only hope the people trapped in the bondage of homosexual perversion? That hope and deliverance comes ONLY through Jesus Christ! God loves the homosexual, but He hates the sin of homosexuality!

IS ABORTION MURDER? Is there any subject that is more controversial? Is there any topic, any debate, any issue that can so quickly divide? Is there any discussion that can so easily polarize a family, community, and nation? Is it conceivable that there is a hotter hot-button issue anywhere? In 1981, President Reagan said publicly, that abortion was “the defining issue of our age.” But then, so did Hillary Clinton. And as you might guess, the two were on opposite ends of the issue.

It is easy to see why abortion elicits such opposing responses. It is the question of life and choice, of law and freedom, of medical technology and civil morality, of private liberty and public responsibility. All of these are vitally important – and abortion has an extraordinary impact on each of those questions. But the real reason abortion is such a divisive issue is that in the end we cannot get away from the fundamental principle that human life matters. Every life is worth affirming, enabling and protecting.

Whenever a crisis takes place our immediate reaction is one of concern for the people involved. When the recent senseless school shooting took place in Uvalde, TX a few days ago we were concerned for the well being of the children and the teachers. When there is a tornado, or a hurricane, or a terrorist attack, or a car accident, or an explosion in a factory, or any other tragedy, our concern is for the people involved. Is everyone all right? Was anybody hurt? Did help arrive in time? Is there anything we can do? Our first thought and concern is always of the people involved, not the circumstance.


The Declaration of Independence emphasizes this truth with the famous words of Thomas Jefferson, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable right; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

Because America built our culture on the principle that people matter more than any other convenience or right, we became known around the world for our character, insuring that we would be a great nation. Because we have always believed that people are more important than any material possession, not only did our culture protect the dignity, integrity, and sanctity of life, but also we respected life. The sanctity of life is one of the central truths that the Founding Fathers thought to be “self evident” in the sense that it is written on the fleshly tablet of every man’s heart. How could something so vital and so obvious have ever become so controversial and so disputed?

I believe that over the past several decades, we have seen the American commitment to life and liberty under a major assault by a host of dangerous trends that have depersonalized what was once a very personal culture. Here is what is being promoted as acceptable and normal in our society: disrespect for authority; incivility; being rude and crude; irreverent and contemptuous; As a result of our embrace of Hollywood’s “sex, drugs, rock and roll” mind-set, it has been easier for us to dismiss the value of life.

Thankfully, it looks as though Roe V. Wade will be overturned by the Supreme Court of the United States and put the decision to murder a child in the womb back to the decision of each individual State. But the fight for the life of the innocent pre-born will not be over. We must continue to move forward on their behalf.

So, is abortion murder? What does God say?

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5)

“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” (Psalm 139:13)

“But when he who had set me apart before I was born, and who called me by His grace,” (Galatians 1:15)


According to these Bible references, AND MANY OTHERS, I believe that God is the founder of the RIGHT TO LIFE movement. In order to protect and preserve life for the innocent pre-born, and everyone else, bold Christians in every walk of life, must begin with the fundamental rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

We must speak for those that cannot speak for themselves. Speak the truth of God’s Word to those who know only the answers of this secular age. Remember, if we don’t speak up, we may not be able to speak out at all. The condition of the church and our society demands that we speak up. The future of our nation requires it and God is watching and God is speaking!

“If my people, which are called by my name will humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways. Then, will I hear from heaven, forgive their sins and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

BIBLES AT THE BORDER For quite some time there has been steady reporting about the influx of Central American children and families crossing the U.S. border and no quick solutions are being presented by our government for what will happen to them. Many people are asking how they can help.

Unlike what would happen if a natural disaster generated a similar flow of migrants – thousands and thousands of children – are here, at least temporarily the responsibility of the federal government, because they were apprehended by or turned themselves in to the Border Patrol.

In the short term, that ensures that the migrants’ immediate needs for shelter, medical care and food are being met, in facilities designed to hold children temporarily. But it has also created extra layers of procedure that complicate how people who want to help can do so. Amazingly, the Lord opened the door to five of these facilities in South Texas for Revival Fires International to give Spanish Truth for Youth Bibles to, and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with, these precious unaccompanied children at the border.

Many great organizations that have attempted to provide various kinds of assistance in these facilities have been rebuffed in several parts of the country, told that security concerns make any kind of outside efforts unwelcome. Children who arrive alone are required by federal law to be cared for by the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement under Health and Human Services, which manages their care after the Border Patrol initially processes them. Thankfully, with the direction of the Holy Spirit, and with the financial help of God’s people, we have already given more than 75,000 Bibles to these youth.

Here is what South Texas Facility Director, Eli said about what God is doing through this vitally important Bible distribution to the unaccompanied minors.

When we give the Spanish Truth for Youth Bibles away I am also able to share with these children, the message of the Cross of Calvary and salvation through Jesus Christ alone. Almost every one of these youth lift their hand to indicate they are giving their heart to the Lord! What an awesome sight, to witness thousands of children, weeping in the presence of God, surrendering their lives to Jesus!

You may ask, how can I help these children? You can help us provide the Spanish Truth for Youth Bibles we are giving to them. The Bibles cost Revival Fires only $2 each to print and there are 50 Bibles to each case. It cost our ministry $2,000 to provide Bibles for the facilities that house 1,000 unaccompanied minors. We are currently providing 5,000 Bibles per month ($10,000 monthly). Any size of financial gift will make an eternal spiritual impact in the lives of these precious, displaced children from Central America, and be greatly appreciated!

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.

I honor my precious mom, Barbara Todd, and my precious wife, Angie this Mother’s Day and every day! I love you mom! I love you Angie! Happy Mother’s Day!”

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:

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. 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.

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!

God has opened a glorious door of evangelism for Revival Fires International to preach the Gospel and distribute Bibles to unaccompanied children at the Southern Border!

Fleeing violence and extreme poverty in their home countries, thousands and thousands of Central American children are seeking asylum at the southern border of America—including thousands of children unaccompanied by parents or legal guardians.

The current situation is part of a years-long crisis at the border. Thankfully, with special permission from brave Christian facility directors, we are now being allowed to minister the Gospel to these youth!

These youth coming to America illegally is not good for our  nation but they are coming. They all need Jesus and they all need Bibles!

Many of these precious children cannot return to their countries because of life-threatening situations and they have no choice but to remain in makeshift camps along the border, where gangs run rampant, and violence is common. It’s hard to comprehend a child fleeing by themselves to a different country out of a desperate hope that they might find   safety and refuge. Yet this is the heartbreaking reality.

Many of these children came to America at the severe risk of being abused, trafficked, and exploited. The U.S. government is keeping them in temporary holding cells or shelters for two weeks, until they can be placed in foster care, a safe home can be found, or they are sent back to their home of origin. As an answer to fervent prayer, I have been granted permission and have the privilege of going into the facilities on a regular basis, to conduct evangelistic services and give each child a Spanish Truth for Youth Bible.

Yes, I am witnessing first hand, that the number of unaccompanied children crossing the border has completely overwhelmed the immigration system, leading to unsafe and overcrowded conditions where they’re being held. These precious children are at a place where they are more receptive to the Gospel than they have ever been! We have already given away more than 50,000 Spanish Truth for Youth Bibles and we the majority of these children have given their life to Jesus Christ as personal savior! What a precious sight to see thousands of precious children with tears streaming down their cheeks as they surrender to Jesus Christ!

These children have been through traumatic circumstances that no child should ever have to experience. You can let an unaccompanied child know they are loved by providing them with their very own Spanish Truth for Youth Bible. We print the Bible’s 50,000 in order to get them at a very special price of only $2 each. There are 50 Bible’s to a case. A $100 gift will provide 50 unaccompanied minor’s with a Bible at the border. There are an average of 1000 young people in the facilities I’m able to minister in and give Bible’s too. A $2000 gift will provide Bible’s for precious young people in an entire facility! Any size of gift will be helpful and greatly appreciated! Thank you for your prayerful consideration.

Please continue to pray for the following ongoing ministry outreaches of Revival Fires International: Truth for Youth Bibles to America’s young people; youth incarcerated in America’s prisons and jails; providing Bible’s for our U.S. Military; providing Bible’s for the people of Cubaconducting revival services and evangelistic crusades.

Because Jesus was raised from the dead you can live and walk in resurrection power every day.

The greatest news known to mankind came from a cemetery: He is risen! When we celebrate Resurrection Sunday, we remember the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus gave his life so that we could have abundant life now and forever.


The Lord dying on the old rugged cross and being raised from the dead three days later was God’s plan for our salvation. What Adam surrendered to Satan in the Garden through disobedience, was redeemed because of Christ’ obedience. The Lord took back the blessing that was taken in the garden and redeemed His family. The Lord gave us back the dominion and authority that rightfully belong to us as His children.

The Lord conquered death, hell and the grave. Satan was defeated, conquered and under Jesus’ feet. We are not fighting for victory, we are fighting from victory!

Jesus already won! “He stripped the rulers and authorities of their power and made a public spectacle of them as he celebrated his victory in Christ” (Colossians 2:15) GW. Jesus was victorious over Satan, victorious over all principalities and powers, victorious over the kingdom of darkness.

Jesus dismantled every power that could take a stand against us.

Jesus threw the knockout punch to the devil on the cross of Calvary! The devil has no authority over you unless you give him the authority. The Lord completed the finished work to secure his demise. And now, the work of resurrection power is available for you to walk in! Many believers accept what Jesus did on the cross but don’t walk in the fullness of what Jesus accomplished on their behalf. This will help you to walk in the victory power every day, that Jesus paid the price for you to walk in.

It is God’s plan for us to operate in the fullness of His resurrection power.

“…Faith knows the power that his coming back to life gives and what it means to share his suffering. In this way I’m becoming like him in his death” –(Philippians 3:10) GW. 

I will make this plain: There is no salvation without the shed blood of Jesus on the Cross and His Resurrection. This is the center of all that God desires for us to receive on the earth and in eternity with Him. To many believers accept the salvation, however regrettably, a lot don’t operate in the completeness of the resurrection power available to each of us.

If you are a Christian, resurrection power is in you this moment. The Holy Ghost anointing, the power of Jesus’ resurrection that you received from Him is in you! If you will just operate in it, it will remove burdens and destroy bondages. The resurrection power of the Lord is absolutely the most powerful force in the universe, however, resurrection power has no power in your life until you begin to activate it.

Giving your life to Jesus Christ does not automatically cause resurrection power to operate in you. You have to make a choice to believe it. You activated resurrection power when you allowed the Lord to save your soul. Consider what the finished work on the cross provided for you: forgiveness of sin, healing, deliverance, being made in right relationship with God Himself! It happened because you activated it by faith, by believing.

In order to have all the benefits—healing, abundance, peace, joy and every good thing—you have to place that same faith into action to receive full use of resurrection power in your life. Every yoke is obliterated under resurrection power and every part of the blessing is released. It’s already been paid for! Just take God at His Word!

If you truly trust that resurrection power is already on the inside of you, you will start to declare it with your mouth. Begin to declare the Word of God! The power of God is in faith-filled words. “Does the Spirit of the one who brought Jesus back to life live in you? Then the one who brought Christ back to life will also make your mortal bodies alive by his Spirit who lives in you” (Romans‬ ‭8:11‬) ‭GW‬‬. 

Understand that does not say He will make alive your glorified body, but your mortal body. That is the resurrection power coming out of God from His Word, into your spirit, out of your mouth, and quickening your body with resurrection power. When you declare Jesus name or plead His blood over your circumstances, the devil is reminded that he has already lost.

The very same power that raised Jesus from the dead is now dwelling in you! The Lord raised us up together and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. The devil is defeated. When he tries to bring the curse back into your life, he is trespassing on private property. You have the authority to make him leave by applying the Name of Jesus, the blood of Jesus, God’s victory to every circumstance you have.

When sickness tries to come, apply the blood of Jesus, resurrection power. When the devil attacks your finances, apply the blood, proclaim that the devil is defeated, and claim the victory Christ won for you on the cross. Don’t ever accept defeat in your life, Jesus paid too high a price for you to accept anything less than total and complete victory. Jesus died and rose from the dead so that you can enjoy a life full of joy and abundance!


What can we do to respond to the unaccompanied children and young people immigration crisis at the U.S./Mexico border? In the past several months, Revival Fires International has provided more than 50,000 Spanish Truth for Youth Bibles to the tens of thousands of children and teenagers arriving at the U.S./Mexico border unaccompanied, most of them coming from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador.

Many have fled the horrific levels of violence in these Central American countries, much of it perpetrated with impunity by criminal gangs. Many have been recruited by human smuggling operations, which prey upon these young people’s vulnerability. Many already have parents or other family members in the United States with whom they hope to be reunited. Whatever the factors that inform their decision to leave—and despite the tragedy that some die along the perilous journey across Mexico, they are risking it all to come.

I agree that everyone coming into America needs to come legally. But the truth is, they are coming whether we agree that they should, or not! AND FURTHERMORE, THEY ALL NEED JESUS AND THEY ALL NEED BIBLES! Miraculously, we have been granted permission to preach and give a Spanish Truth for Youth Bible to young people being housed in facilities at the border, coming into America. With God’s help, and with the compassionate prayers and financial help of God’s people, we are witnessing a tremendous harvest of souls! Please pray for these precious young people that are displaced. Pray for these evangelistic efforts at the border. You may help us provide Spanish Truth for Youth Bibles for each one of these youth by using the enclosed envelope or filling out the information on the back of this newsletter. Wrap your gift with love and thank you!


Revival Fires is in the process of providing full Bibles for 7,000 additional U.S. Troops being deployed to Europe, after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine launched the biggest land war in Europe since World War II.

The Pentagon said that Defense Secretary Lloyd J. Austin III ordered the deployment of an armored brigade combat team to Germany. American military officials say the deployment will bring to 14,000 the number of American troops that President Biden has ordered to Europe since the Ukraine crisis began. Their arrival will bring to nearly 100,000 the number of American troops  Europe. Revival Fires is making it a top priority to give a full Bible to every U.S. Soldier being deployed into the Ukraine region.

Many of you already know that from 1991-1997 I was honored to be a part of the Revival Fires team that gave away more than one million Bibles to the Russian Red Army soldiers. What an awesome sight, to witness first hand, thousands of Russian soldiers and many high ranking Red Army officers surrender their lives to Jesus Christ!

Eventually the door of that opportunity slammed shut, but while it was open, we ran through it! Would to God, we had the opportunity to introduce the current Russian Red Army to the Lord. Right now, the door to provide  Bibles for our U.S. Troops is still open! Please pray with us as we provide Bibles for our brave soldiers providing humanitarian relief in the Ukraine region.

Also, please continue to pray for our efforts to provide Truth For Youth Bibles to teenagers across America, Bibles for Cuba, Bibles for young people in America’s detention centers and jails.

Today you may be praying and believing God for a miracle breakthrough in your marriage, for your children and grandchildren to get in right relationship with the Lord, for your finances, healing, direction for the ministry God has called you to, or perhaps another important matter? If this describes you, you are already aware that standing strong in faith believing is not for immature Christians. The Lord is aware that for you to get  a miraculous breakthrough it will test your determination—the Lord compels us to put on the whole armor of God, and persevere until we receive the breakthrough! This is battle terminology. 

Thankfully, we are not fighting FOR victory! We are fighting FROM victory! Jesus already won the battle on Calvary’s Cross! No matter what you are facing, this message will arm you with weapons to help you!

You Have to Be Convinced

That’s why I tell you to have faith that you have already received whatever you pray for, and it will be yours.” (Mark 11:24 GW) Make a proclamation of faith, that is straight! This is extremely important!

Mark 11:24 commands us to believe even prior to you really believing! You must call things that are not as though they are. What you really need to try to accomplish this is building and developing your faith walk to a place of believing what the Bible says about your situation over what your situation says—regardless of whether your situation is speaking loudly in the wrong direction.

Come to the place where you have faith believing even before it happens. That is true faith. The old adage, “I’ll believe it when I see it happen” is really no more than disbelief fueled by doubt. That is not  a safe place to be spiritually because a double-minded person will not receive anything from the Lord (James 1:7-8); When you are tempted to speak doubt about the situation you are facing, speak the Word of God instead!

When the devil tries to discourage you in the midst of your trial, that’s when you speak God’s Word in response. That’s what Jesus did when He was tempted in the wilderness, and Satan gave up fairly quickly because he knew he was no match for the Truth of God’s Word.

Jesus took authority over the devil and over His situation by speaking the Word. That’s what you have to do too, when you need a miraculous breakthrough. No matter what you need from God, if it is in the Bible, you have the solution. Declare it!

You can provide Bibles for our soldiers defending America in the War on Terror! 

The Actual Act of Doing it

Isaiah  1:19 says, If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the best from the land.”

Having confidence is just a part of what you have to do. To receive your miraculous breakthrough, you have to make up your mind that you are going to bring your will in line with God’s will. You have to make a decision to cast down every hindrance, realizing that Jesus already won the battle on your behalf!

When you actually step forth and begin to walk in the victory of the situation you are facing, you are declaring, “I have faith that the Lord is in control. I trust what the Bible says about this circumstance. I am going to aggressively go after receiving everything God has said is mine. I’m going to stand firm on God’s Word, knowing that the end result is going to be a miraculous breakthrough.”

Too many believers refuse to pay the price to do what you have to do by faith. Too many prefer to blame God, accusing Him of not working on their behalf.

The Lord made each of us to commune with Him intimately. A strong relationship is not possible outside of having a free will. We are required to do our part.

Just because something happens doesn’t mean that it was God’s will. According to 2 Peter 3:9 we know that it’s not God’s will for anyone to perish but that ALL should be brought to repentance. 

The actual act of doing it! Step forward, in faith, moving toward what you are believing God for. The actual act of renewing your mind daily, reading your Bible. The actual act of consistently and fervently praying. The actual act of putting old ways of doing things that don’t line up with the Bible, behind you. 

Allow Christians that are strong in the Lord to pour into you instead of being offended by their godly counsel. Be willing to say, “I’m going to move forward in the actual act of doing what I have to do spiritually to receive breakthrough and come to the next level in Christ!”

You can help us provide Bibles at the Border for undocumented immigrant youth coming into America!

Receive in Faith What God Has for You 

In Mark 11:24 Jesus declared, “That’s why I tell you to have faith that you have already received whatever you pray for, and it will be yours.”

Jesus is reminding us that when we petition Him, that we should do so with an expectation that we are going to receive what we are asking for. However a lot of believers pray, believe and then sit back waiting for the answer to their prayer to be delivered on a silver platter without doing anything else. That isn’t how it works and it’s not God’s plan. 

The word, ‘receive’ in Mark 11:24 translates, “to take with the hand, lay hold of,” or “to take in order to carry away.” Receive faith because Jesus freely gives it to you!

Have faith believing that God is healing your body. Have faith believing that God is saving your children and grandchildren. Have faith believing that God is healing your finances. Faith, believing what God says will take away the boundaries and destroy everything that the devil brings your way. 1 John 5:4 declares, “because everyone who has been born from God has won the victory over the world. Our faith is what wins the victory over the world” (GWT).

An upright person lives by faith according to Hebrews 10:38. The Word of God declares that you can’t even please God without faith. (Hebrews 11:6) God wants us to have faith in Him consistently! (Mark 11:22)

The Lord is very clear in His Word, that when it comes to faith, either you are ALL IN or ALL OUT! I choose to be ALL IN! 

In order to receive, you must have faith and it is God’s desire for you to receive!

Jesus paid the ultimate price on the Cross of Calvary so that you can be healed spiritually, physically, financially, emotionally and in every other way.

Jesus poured out His precious blood to pay the ultimate price for our salvation, our deliverance, our healing and our prosperity. God sacrificed His only Son to be sure we have life and life more abundantly! You can’t receive any of this without faith!

We say, “God, when are you going to move?” And God is saying, “No, when are you going to move?” God gave us the responsibility to receive what He has for us by faith. When you see a promise in the Word, don’t wait; pursue your miraculous breakthrough. Receive it by faith. 

You can help us provide Bibles to the precious people of Cuba!

God Has Already Given it to You

I can guarantee this truth: This is what will be done for someone who doesn’t doubt but believes what he says will happen: He can say to this mountain, ‘Be uprooted and thrown into the sea,’ and it will be done for him.” (GWT)

You receive your answer in the supernatural realm, but a lot of times you won’t see it in the natural realm immediately. You desire to have the manifestation of what you are praying for. The word ‘have’ means “to possess, to own.” 

That’s easy to comprehend in the natural: When the title to your house is in your possession, you know that you own the house!

It’s completely different when you are pursuing something by faith. Mark 11:23 declares that you have what you say. With regard to the trial that you are facing, what words are coming out of your mouth? The words that you speak can help you or hurt you. The Word of God is the will and testament of Jesus Christ and it includes you as an heir to God’s proclamations.

No matter what the miraculous breakthrough is that you need, realize, God has already given it to you!

You can help us provide Bibles to young people in youth detention centers!

In Faith, Offer Up Thanksgiving to the Lord for an Answered Prayer

In Philippians 4:6 the Bible says, Never worry about anything. But in every situation let God know what you need in prayers and requests while giving thanks.” When we pray, we come into the presence of God. However, when we praise and worship, God comes into ours!

Too many times, personal praise is what we fail to do and as a result, we miss out on transitioning from believing God to receiving what He has for us. Are you praying and believing God for healing? After  you study and speak the Word of God as it applies to healing, start to praise and thank God for sending the Lord to the Cross of Calvary. Praise and worship Him for healing you!

Magnify God! Praise Him! Thank Him! When you can’t sleep because of excruciating pain in your body, magnify and worship Him. When you begin to stress about your money situation, praise God. When you are facing the pain of depression or anxiety, begin to aggressively praise the Lord.

In that place of praise and worship, mighty battles are won!

Praise and worship in the middle of your trial is the mightiest demonstration of your faith!

The National Truth for Youth week on American Family Radio scheduled for August 9-13! We will be giving thousands of TFY Bibles to young people across the nation!

Be Willing to Forgive

As far as our relationship to Christ Jesus is concerned…what matters is a faith that expresses itself through love.” (Galatians 5:6 GWT)

To show forth the love of Christ we have to be willing to forgive. Forgiveness is of the utmost importance! Everything else I’ve expressed in this message is dependent on this. Faith won’t operate without forgiveness. According to Mark 11:25, not forgiving others keeps you from being forgiven. 

When I gave my life to the Lord one of the very first things I did was go to my dad and mom and ask them to forgive me for unforgiveness I harbored in my heart toward them. It was like a weight was lifted off of me!

Unforgiveness keeps you from loving others. Without love you cannot operate in faith. Having unforgiveness in your heart will keep you from getting your prayers answered. 

Having unforgiveness is living in opposition to God’s Word.

Realize that no matter where you are in your relationship with the Lord you have to ask God on a regular basis to help you remember anybody that you may have unforgiveness toward. It may even be that you haven’t forgiven yourself for something. Satan will try to keep you in unforgiveness so that you can’t receive what you need from God!

Do not allow the devil to get away with it! Forgive rapidly and then pay attention to how quickly your miraculous breakthrough will take place.

Have you been believing God for a length of time for your breakthrough? When the Lord makes something available to you, reach out in faith and receive it! 

Let me know what you are you standing in faith believing God for today? Let me know what your needs are. You have my word that I will pray with you.

Eunice is not a name in the Bible that is well known, but she was a very important mother. I’ve read a lot about the godly women in the Bible and the evil women in the Bible and Eunice is not one that is mentioned much. Could she have been Jesus’ aunt? You know everyone had an Aunt Eunice, right? The aunt who wears a big hat with a huge flower on it and cooks the tastiest apple pie. As a side note, the name Eunice quit being popular in the early 1900’s and since then has fallen out of favor. With that in mind, if you have a relative by the name of Eunice, she is most likely a Great Grandma Eunice or a Great Aunt Eunice.

What was so special about Eunice? Eunice was a precious mother who transformed the world through her son. She was the godly mother of a well known man in the Bible, Timothy.

“From Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by God’s will—a will that contains Christ Jesus’ promise of life. 2 To Timothy, my dear child. Good will, [a mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord!

3 I constantly remember you in my prayers at night and day when I thank God, whom I serve with a clear conscience as my ancestors did. 4 I remember your tears and want to see you so that I can be filled with happiness. 5 I’m reminded of how sincere your faith is. That faith first lived in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice. I’m convinced that it also lives in you.” (2 Timothy 1:1-5)

Timothy was a very dear companion of Paul the Apostle and was one of his most important colleagues in all of his missionary expeditions. Paul depended on Timothy in the work he was doing for God. Timothy got started with Paul on his missionary expeditions (Acts 16:1-3) following his trips to Lystra. Timothy was devoted to Paul even while Paul was in jail for lengths of time in Rome. Timothy was a Jewish believer, as were his mother and grandmother. They had been made aware of Jesus and devoted their lives to serve Him.

Notice that our text says that the faith that was in Timothy belonged first in his Grandmother and then his mother. Their life was an example of faith to him. They instructed him in God’s Word. As I ponder Timothy’s life, I’m compelled to ask the question:

Mothers and grandmothers…how much time do you spend talking to your children and grandchildren about the word of God? They should be made aware of the Lord from you first. Teach them the songs about Jesus. They should be singing about Jesus before they are singing about Barney or learning nursery rhymes. Instruct your children and grandkids about Jesus. Teach them by example that being faithful to the house of God is important.

Too often, godly faithful moms are made to feel that they should apologize for being mothers and housewives. The truth is, being a godly mom is a treasure.

“My precious mom that I love so much!

Through the years as I have traveled on the evangelistic field, there have been get togethers where people would ask Angie, ”What kind of work do you do?”

My wife Angie, who is a mighty woman of God and one of the sharpest and well spoken individuals I know, had a great response: “I have a full time job making sure that our children are learning how to faithfully serve God.” Angie has always made it a top priority to pour Jesus into our children through godly instruction and example.

I’m convinced that godly faithful, praying moms play an extremely important role in determining the destiny of a child in the home. Thank you God for mothers that are a godly example to their children.

“My precious wife Angie is a godly mother to our four children!”


Several weeks ago, Angie and I began praying about what God wanted us to do to effectively minister to the youth making their way into the United States from Central America.

I received a phone call just a few days ago from a pastor of a very small church in Harlingen, TX. He is close friends with the director of a gold standard shelter that houses 2,000 young men between the ages of 12-18 that have made their way to America illegally.

This facility director has asked me to conduct evangelistic services in the facility for these young men, and to give each one a Spanish Truth For Youth Bible!!! The first evangelistic services and Truth For Youth Bible distribution will take place on Monday, May 3.

This facility director has also requested for Revival Fires to provide Spanish Truth For Youth Bibles for these young men on a regular basis! They are housed in these shelters for only two weeks at a time, then released into America with family members, sponsors, or placed into foster care. A different group of young men immediately replace the previous group in the shelter every two weeks! 4,000 young men a month! What an awesome evangelism opportunity!

This overwhelming surge of immigrants coming into American illegally is not healthy for our nation. However, these young people are precious in God’s eyes. They need Jesus and they need Bibles!

I am viewing these precious young people, from a Kingdom perspective, not a political perspective, through the eyes of our great God, not through the eyes of our great border control. When these precious immigrants go into eternity, God is not going to ask them if they have a green card of U.S. citizenship. All that will matter is that their names are written in the Lambs Book of Life.

Please pray with us that every one of these young people that are entering America illegally, will have the opportunity to hear the message of salvation through the blood of the cross, receive a Spanish Truth For Youth Bible, and give their life to Jesus Christ as personal savior!

We need to order 50,000 Spanish Truth For Youth Bibles immediately to provide Bibles for these young men coming in and out of this facility every two weeks! This will supply enough Bibles to last for a year!

The Spanish Truth For Youth Bibles that we are giving these 2,000 young men every two weeks cost Revival Fires only $2 each to print and are boxed, 50 Bibles to a case.

Will you prayerfully consider helping us with the $100,000 cost for these 50,000 Spanish Truth For Youth   Bibles?

Will you consider providing a case of 50 of these Bibles with a gift of $100? Or 100 Bibles with a gift of $200? Or 250 Bibles with a gift of $500? Or 500 Bibles with a gift of $1,000? Or 2500 Bibles with a gift of $5,000? Or perhaps 5000 Bibles with a gift of $10,000? Any amount you give to help us reach these precious people will be a tremendous help and greatly appreciated!

We need to take advantage of this opportunity! While this door is open, we must run through it! Thank you for praying and thank you for obeying.


We receive requests for TFY Bibles from prisons, jails, and detention centers across American regularly.

The Lord has given us an inroad to provide a TFY Bible for youth that are coming in and out of these juvenile detention centers across America!

Please join us in prayer as we continue to give away Bibles to young people and adults in the United States and witness them giving their life to Jesus Christ!


Just a few days ago, a precious woman of God that had been confined to a wheelchair for over a year and a half was healed! In our services, hundreds of people are being saved, filled with the Spirit, healed, delivered, and SET ON FIRE FOR GOD!!!

Pray with us as God is moving mightily in the lives of thousands of people through our revival services in churches across America!


We are grateful to witness a massive amount of youth coming to Christ as we continue to give away TFY Bibles! Please pray for continued Kingdom success as we reach a generation of young people.


Thankfully, we are able to print the Truth For Youth Bibles in communist China and distribute them in communist Cuba to the people of Cuba that have never had a Bible!

Regardless of how bleak it may look in the world right now, be assured that there is light at the end of the tunnel and it is not an oncoming train. That light is the light of Jesus Christ!

John said, “Let not your heart be troubled” John 14:1 (KJV).God has specific things He has give the body of Christ to do. I am convinced that God has been trying to get our attention with all of the difficulties we have been faced with over the past year. 

As I travel I realize that more than ever there is a desire for a genuine Holy Ghost Revival Fire in the United States. Any time there has been a revival, it has taken place in the midst of hard times. A real move of God transforms the way individuals conduct themselves. That means we are positioned right now for a move of God at a level that we have never experienced before.

How do we know when a revival will occur? We can learn from great moves of the Holy Ghost in America from the past. Even though no move of God is exactly the same, there are certain ingredients that are always included in a real move of God.  I’m convinced that the following is God’s recipe to ignite a Real Revival Fire in America that we should seek to fall in line with.

Hebrews 10:38 says, “The person who has God’s approval will live by faith.

But if he turns back, I will not be pleased with him.”

The roar of a lion is extremely loud! Truth is, the roar of a lion can be heard from a distance of almost 10 miles. There is a really good reason for this. A lion does not move very quickly, although he is extremely strong. As a result, he is not very good  at catching his prey. With this in mind, So, he will place himself on one end of the landscape, at the same time the lioness’s place themselves on the opposite end of the same landscape. The prey flee in the opposite direction to maintain their safety, when they hear the loud roar of the lion. The end result is that the prey end up exactly where the lion wants them to be, right into the eager batch of female lions.

What these animals don’t realize is that they can’t be intimidated by the roar of that lion. A man and woman of God must not be intimidated by the devil!“Keep your mind clear, and be alert. Your opponent the devil is prowling around like a roaring lion as he looks for someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8 (GW). You shouldn’t be running from the devil. The devil should be running from you! In order to accomplish this you have to take on a mindset that God has already won this battle.

Don’t be the prey. Instead, take time to pray. Then, put legs on your prayers and run toward the battle that has already been won!

Proverbs 28:1 (GW) declares, “A wicked person flees when no one is chasing him, but righteous people are as bold as lions.” That should be a description of you and me. In order for us to witness what God desires to accomplish in and through America we must not be intimidated by the devil! We have to be bold in Christ!

The Word of God declares, “ But cowardly, unfaithful, and detestable people, murderers, sexual sinners, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars will find themselves in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death. Revelation21:8 (GW). Amazingly, cowards are in the same list as murderers, sexual sinners and other people who are on the road to hell. Everybody else in this passage is going to hell for what they DID do. The unfaithful and cowardly are going for what they DIDN’T do. So many today don’t have the steel in their backbone to stand up for righteousness and call sin by it’s first name! The cowards and the fearful don’t take a strong stand with regard to what the Bible says about the murder of innocent children in the womb, homosexual perversion, and other social issues. Many believers refuse to be in the heat of the battle. However, that isn’t who God has called us to be! Do you really want to be a part of the last day Revival Fire that God is in the process of pouring out on us right now? You will have to be willing to take a bold stand and not be intimidated by the devil if you truly desire for God to ignite a real Holy Ghost Revival Fire in America!

As a result of God’s people being intimidated by the devil we have stood on the sideline and witnessed America gradually and progressively moving away from God. The Lord created us with a spiritual fight on the inside of us to stand up and speak out for what is truth!

“Don’t be concerned only about your own interests, but also be concerned about the interests of others.” Philippians 2:4 (GW)

Real Revival Fire takes place when the body of Christ gets outside the four walls of the church building to seek the lost and introduce them to Jesus! To often we view this as being the responsibility of large ministries.  

However, that is not the Lord’s plan. The Lord’s plan is for you to go into your community and win one person to the Lord and disciple them until they really get saved and they are ready for you to leave them alone. Then the two of you go out and win two more people to the Lord, and the four of you go out and win four more people to the Lord, and so on.

Begin viewing a move of God as one soul at a time instead of a huge evangelistic crusade. Focus on what you can do: win the lost at any cost! 

“So wherever you go, make disciples of all nations.” –Matthew 28:19 (GW)

Winning the lost is just part of the process that needs to take place. Jesus also commands us to disciple the believers after they come to Christ. In every previous move of God, teaching new believers how to serve the Lord, according to God’s Word, has a tremendous spiritual impact!

When the majority of local churches are not teaching the full Word of God because they don’t want to offend anyone, they are missing the call to disciple people. A move of God results when the local body of Christ teaches the full Word of God. In addition to leading someone to Christ we must have the hard conversations with regard to subjects that many churches steer away from. We need to teach new converts to see things through the lens of the Bible when it comes to the economy, criminal justice and education.

At this point, 6% of the world has a biblical perspective. There has to be transition in our way of thinking! A mighty move of God will transform the way individuals think and act. We must begin applying God’s Word to every issue and help individuals realize how important the Bible is.

The local body of Christ must not look at success as the number of individuals sitting in the pew, or how big or beautiful the sanctuary is, or the amount given in the offering plate. The Lord did not build the Church, He built the Kingdom. When we take the action that brings about a move of God by discipling believers, a move of God will take place!

“Stop judging by outward appearance! Instead, judge correctly.” –John 7:24 (GW)

When you are believing God for a genuine move of God what is your indicator that it has actually taken place?

Real moves of God from the past were measured in public policy. For instance, when individuals stand up and stop turning a blind eye to the murder of precious pre-born babies, that is a sign of a move of God. A lot of believers do not understand that this is a daily process, instead of a one time event.

Understand that a genuine move of God is a process, not a one time event, and then your outlook and involvement in bringing about a genuine move of God will expand tremendously.

One of the very first moves of God in the United States took place from 1730 to 1770. The second move of God took place from 1801 to 1878. These two outpourings lasted for years! A lot of the people that were a part of it didn’t even realize it because ‘a move of God’ was not just a series of powerful revival services. To the contrary, it happened over a period of time.

A move of God is also impacts every age group. That’s why it is so important that the local body of Christ raises up and disciples young people to instruct them right ways of thinking and living, while also encouraging them to impact and have an influence the society. Realizing that a real move of  God is a process, not an event, is extremely important!

2 Samuel 23:12 says, “Shammah stood in the middle of the field and defended it by killing Philistines. So the Lord won an impressive victory.”

When the American Revolution took place, there were a lot of times that the believers from local congregations would come together to participate in the battle instead of just sitting around waiting for the federal government to send troops. They wanted to protect and preserve their land. When the British came, Pastors brought their congregations together and boldly stood up to the enemy. They engaged in the little combats instead of the big battle and it made the way for the final win!

If we desire to witness a real move of God, the local body of Christ must be willing to fight in the territory that God has allocated for us to fight! The believers must fight in the territory we have been assigned. Believers need to fight in the cities , counties, parishes that they live in to preserve the United States and bring our nation back to God!

Shammah did this very thing in 2 Samuel 23. He rose up and battled in opposition to the Philistines for a bean patch because that is what HE was supposed to do. By doing what he was assigned to do it resulted in a great victory. As a result of his obedience, “So the Lord won an impressive victory.” (vs. 12).

Yes we need a nationwide win, however, I would submit to your consideration that a national win will take place as a result of a combination of local wins! Focus on your territory, your community, your county. One reason why you live where you live is because God has assigned that territory to you! Don’t allow national battles pull  you away from what God has for you to do. Focus on your local community. In previous nationwide genuine moves of God a series of a lot of local outpourings of the Holy Spirit made the way for a move of God that swept America.

Winning the battles locally will lead to winning the battle for America! This is how a real, genuine, mighty move of God will take place!

Make up your mind with determination to be a part of God’s recipe to ignite a Revival Fire in America in 2021. 

In your eyes you may have a misconception that what you are doing to stand up for what is right in your local community is not really making a difference, however, combined with what millions of Christians are doing across America, you are making an important eternal spiritual impact that will result in bringing about a national move of God!


With the help of prison chaplains at prisons, jails and youth detention centers across America we have the opportunity to provide Truth for Youth Bibles for more than 70,800 young people incarcerated in juvenile facilities across America!

In addition, the Lord has given us an inroad to provide TFY Bibles for the  approximately 500,000 youth brought to detention centers each year! These approximately 500,000 troubled youth are brought to these detention centers for just a short time. They need Jesus and they need a Truth for Youth Bible!!!

The Truth for Youth consist of the entire New Testament along with 100 pages of full color comic stories in the front section that deal with the truth from a biblical perspective about drugs, drunkenness, peer pressure, sexual purity, pornography, witchcraft, cutting, sexting, bullying, suicide, honor, homosexuality and many other issues of moral concern. 

We incorporated the plan of salvation into each one of the stories so that these incarcerated youth will not only find out the truth about these issues, but many are giving their lives to Jesus Christ as personal savior. 

It is such a blessing to receive letters from young people that surrendered their life to Jesus Christ while they were incarcerated and now that they have been released they are living godly lives and making a positive contribution in their community! THANK YOU JESUS! HE IS THEIR ONLY HOPE!!!

Thank you for praying for God to help us put a Bible into the hands of all 70,800 in youth detention centers, and the more than 500,000 youth that are rotating in and out of jail each year!

The Lord has given us an inroad to provide a Truth for Youth Bible for the youth that are coming in and out of these juvenile detention centers across America!


Please pray for us as we continue to give Truth for Youth Bibles to Christian young people across America that commit to give them to their friends in school that are not serving the Lord. We have given away more than 2.7 million and have received more than 25,000 decision cards from young people that have been saved for the very first time!!! This year with God’s help, and with your help, we will give away more than 200,000 Truth for Youth Bibles!


Our soldiers defending America in the war on terror need the strength and hoped contained in God’s Word! They risk their lives for our freedom. One of the very best ways we can help repay them for their sacrifice is to provide them with a Bible.  A Bible in their hands and Jesus in their heart will change their life for eternity! 

Revival Fires has already given 300,000 Bibles to our troops. To help us continue to provide Bibles for our soldiers you may do so by using the enclosed envelope. Thank you in advance!


As a result of COVID-19 we have not been able to personally go to Cuba to distribute Bibles but we are still able to send them. The full Bibles are printed in communist China by Christian printers and shipped to communist Cuba and distributed by Cuban believers that we work closely with, to the people of Cuba that have never had a Bible!!! Thank you for praying for these efforts.

Sometimes you need to put premium gasoline in a vehicle to give it a surge.

We all need a fresh spiritual surge of strengthening power on a regular basis! God uses other believers  to help us accomplish our God given assignments. The Lord created each of us to depend on Him and each other. God puts individuals in our life to accomplish what He desires to do in us and through us. However, we have to be receptive to their help.

There are things we have to do for ourselves spiritually that no one can do for us: spend time with in prayer and in His Word, make corrections in our behavior, and stir up our faith. But there are also things God wants to accomplish in us through other believers that will help us receive what we need from God, much faster than we would otherwise.

You can receive the surge of spiritual energy you need and recover what Satan is stealing from you by grabbing hold of the instructions found in the preaching and teaching of the Bible through the local church.

2 Timothy 3:16 and 17 declares, “Every Scripture passage is inspired by God. All of them are useful for teaching, pointing out errors, correcting people, and training them for a life that has God’s approval. They equip God’s servants so that they are completely prepared to do good things.” (GW) 

It is important that we learn from God’s Word as it is instructed under the Holy Ghost anointing. God desires and requires for us to receive an important layer of His instructions through the local church.

The word, ‘surge’ is defined, “a sudden powerful, forward or upward movement.” God, by the power of His Holy Ghost, desires to move you forward and upward in 2021 with a fresh surge of spiritual strength through the local body of Christ!

“Do your best to present yourself to God as a tried-and-true worker who isn’t ashamed to teach the word of truth correctly.” –2 Timothy 2:15 (GW)

The Body of Christ is set apart to accomplish specific things. This includes the ability for Christians to rightly divide the truth of God’s Word. What does it mean to rightly divide the Word of God?

The bottom line is, to rightly divide the Word translates into having the knowledge to correctly consider every verse in context. To have the knowledge to distinguish the difference between the old and new covenants and how they apply to your life and family.

If you have difficulty understanding how to rightly divide the Word, it will result in the Church doing things that don’t apply to Christians. They apply to the Jews, they apply to the nations, but they don’t apply to us. It’s important to have the knowledge of how to rightly divide God’s Word.

A God appointed pastor is anointed to direct His flock to rightly divide God’s Word. The result will be a life of victory in every area of your life. This is a spiritual strength you can only get by faithfully attending church. There is a supernatural ministry that occurs through the local church that will catapult you to your divine destiny more rapidly than if you were to try to accomplish this in your own strength.

The local body of Christ will give you a surge of spiritual strength by teaching you to study the Bible in the light of Calvary’s Cross and line up scripture with other scripture to understand what God is truly speaking. It also enables you to

allow the Holy Ghost to speak into what you’re studying, opposed to taking from it something things that aren’t there, and appropriately apply the Word to every area of your life.

Studying the Bible personally is extremely important, however, submitting yourself to learning the Bible through your pastor, is vitally important to your spiritual growth. Both are important to your spiritual well-being.

“However, solid food is for mature people, whose minds are trained by practice to know the difference between good and evil.” –Hebrews 5:14 (GW)

When the Bible is rightly divided in the local church, each individual in attendance will experience a fresh surge of spiritual energy in their discernment if they are receptive to what God desires to accomplish in them. As they study and mature through the teaching and preaching of God’s Word, the ability to discern what’s right and what’s wrong, good and evil, will be brought to a higher level.

Growing in a strengthened sense of scriptural right and wrong is important with regard to obtaining victory in every area of your life. A biblical worldview is the key that unlocks the door to spiritual productivity and the blessings of God.

You are able to develop discernment in your relationship with Christ, but the local body of Christ, instructing you in God’s Word, will give you a spiritual surge of strength that will catapult you at a far greater pace.

“Don’t become like the people of this world. Instead, change the way you think. Then you will always be able to determine what God really wants—what is good, pleasing, and perfect.

” –Romans 12:2 (GW)

A steady diet of the Bible through the local church gives you a spiritual surge of strength with regard to renewing your mind, and guards your mind from the onslaught of attacks of the devil. In addition, it positions you to be able to handle the difficulties you are faced with by being armed with the strength of the Lord’s wisdom. Anointed instruction from God’s Word will keep our minds renewed far more than personal devotion time and study by itself. The more we hear the Word, the more we fall in line with God’s plan for our lives.

Renewing our mind is a process of, pulling up by the roots a worldly mindset and replacing it with godly, righteous thinking. It enables us to cast down imaginations and strongholds, and take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.

“Do what God’s word says. Don’t merely listen to it, or you will fool yourselves.” –James 1:22 (GW)

You can only receive the support and encouragement of a local church body, if you are faithful to attend and be active in that local church body. The local body of Christ will give you a fresh spiritual surge of strength as you become a doer of God’s Word.

Iron sharpens iron! It’s easy to have the mindset that, we have everything under control on our own. However, when we become faithful to the local body of Christ, God will use spiritually strong individuals that will help us mature in the Lord. Not just how to speak it, but also how to live it. A healthy local body will consistently challenge you to become more like Jesus each day. They’ll inspire you, encourage you and give you ideas on how to live out your walk with the Lord on a daily basis. That is a spiritual strength surge that comes exclusively through being involved in the local body of Christ.

“Then we will no longer be little children, tossed and carried about by all kinds of teachings that change like the wind. We will no longer be influenced by people who use cunning and clever strategies to lead us astray.” –Ephesians 4:14 (GW)

A pastor of the local church is called to do more than teach and preach God’s Word. A pastor is also responsible for protecting us through correction. Some people despise correction, but Proverbs 12:1 (AMP) says, “But he who hates reproof and correction is stupid.”

Being deceived will direct you in the opposite direction from what God’s plan is for your life. However, the local body of Christ will arm you with a huge spiritual surge of strength through correction that guards you and promotes you. That’s a spiritual surge of strength that you can only obtain by being faithful to a local body. 

As you are faithful to a local body in 2021, be watching for God to fulfill His plan in your life, and all the power you will witness firsthand, manifested within the four walls of the church body you are faithful to. Be faithful to your local church body. Arrive early and position yourself spiritually to get back what the devil has been stealing from you, in the mighty name of Jesus!


We receive requests for Truth for Youth Bibles from chaplains at prisons, jails and detention centers across America on a regular basis. We never turn down one request provide thousands of Bibles for inmates. However, what God has accomplished this this important outreach is just scratching the surface!

There are 6.6 million inmates in adult correctional facilities and more than 70,800 young people incarcerated in juvenile facilities. Each year there are approximately 500,000 youth brought to detention centers! 

The Lord has given us an inroad to provide a Truth for Youth Bible for young people that are coming in and out of these juvenile detention centers across America!

Please pray with us and for us as we continue to distribute thousands of Bibles to incarcerated teenagers and adults in America and bring in a harvest of souls through these efforts.


In our services, hundreds of people were saved, filled with the Spirit, healed, delivered and SET ON FIRE FOR GOD!!!

Pray with us as God is moving mightily in the lives of thousands of people through our revival services in churches across America! 


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 are receiving tremendous testimonies from young people that are giving their lives to the Lord as a result of receiving a Truth for Youth Bible. Please pray for continued Kingdom success as we reach a generation of young people. 


We are honored to give away thousands of full Bibles to the people of Cuba who have never had a Bible. As a result of COVID-19 restrictions we are not able to conduct Cuba Crusades personally, however, because we have an established relationship with Pastor Miguel in Havana, Cuba, we are able to send the Bible’s directly to Cuba from China where they are printed. Think about this… we print the Bible’s in communist China, and send them to the precious people in communist Cuba. The Bibles are distributed by the congregations overseen by Pastor Miguel. Please pray for this door of evangelism to remain open in Cuba.

Not Forsaking the Assembling of the Body of Christ in 2021

The difficulties we have all faced in 2020 caught most everyone by surprise. I’m convinced that the devil is behind the evil plot that led to quickly closing the doors of churches across America and around the world.

Romans 13 commands us to submit to government authorities, however, when a pandemic is used to oppress the church it is time to take action! I’m fully aware that there are high risk individuals that it has been necessary for them to be precautious, but seemingly we have gone from saving people to manipulating people, specifically those that make up the Body of Christ.

I believe that this coming year will be strategic for the Body of Christ as we wake up and prepare for the greatest outpouring of the Holy Ghost in the history of the Church!

Submitting our lives wholeheartedly to God in 2021 will be extremely important in the midst of what He is going to accomplish. 

God is going to use the Body of Christ mightily and assembling ourselves together will be imperative for many reasons. 

First of all,

We should not stop gathering together with other believers, as some of you are doing. Instead, we must continue to encourage each other even more as we see the day of the Lord coming.” –Hebrews 10:25 (GW)

Jesus stressed the importance of the local church when He was here in the flesh and he hasn’t changed His mind. God could accomplish what needs to happen without the church but instead, He chooses to use the Body of Christ. 

The Lord’s plan for the Body of Christ involves coming together with other Christians. One very necessary purpose is to create an atmosphere for the Holy Ghost to accomplish what God desires to accomplish as described in 1 Corinthians 12-14.

Companionship and connections are important to our Christian growth. God uses the assembling of ourselves to allow believers to move in the gifts of the Spirit and speak into others. Something as simple as a smile leads to much needed encouragement in the midst of difficult times.

Psalm 92:13 tells us, “They are planted in the Lord’s house. They blossom in our God’s courtyards.” (GW). 

Blossoming in your life happens as a result of being planted in God’s house—the local church.

In addition, attending church isn’t just about what you can GET out of it, it’s also about GIVING of yourself. As much as you need the local church, the local church needs you! We are the Church, not the building, but we the people. However, if the Body is disassembled, the Body can’t operate the way Christ wants us to operate. When we come together, we must be prepared to give and receive according to 1 Corinthians 14:26, “So what does this mean, brothers and sisters? When you gather, each person has a psalm, doctrine, revelation, another language, or an interpretation. Everything must be done to help each other grow.”


When Daniel learned that the document had been signed, he went to his house. An upper room in his house had windows that opened in the direction of Jerusalem. Three times each day he got down on his knees and prayed to his God. He had always praised God this way.” –Daniel 6:10 (GW)

It is definitely important for us to respect and obey God’s instructions in Romans 13 with regard to obeying the laws of the land. However, the Lord does not require us to adhere to laws that are in opposition to the Bible. 

This truth is clearly revealed throughout God’s Word. Daniel was thrown in the lions den. The three Hebrew boys were thrown in the fiery furnace. Esther approached the King without first being summoned. John the Baptist had his head chopped off. Stephen was stoned. The axe blade dripped with the blood of Paul the apostle. Peter was crucified upside down. They were sawed in two and burned at the stake. What’s happened to you lately?

What the Lord says always trumps the law of the land. In the book of Acts 5:29 the Apostle Paul said, “We must obey God, rather than men.” We respect authority when it isn’t convenient, even when we are not in agreement. But when the law is in opposition to what God’s Word says that is where we must draw the line.


Have nothing to do with the useless works that darkness produces. Instead, expose them for what they are.” –Ephesians 5:11 (GW)

Gathering together as the local church is scriptural, however, realize that it is also a legal right. Freedom of speech, freedom of religion and the freedom to peaceably assemble are all protected rights of every citizen. In addition, no where in the Constitution is there room for justification of singling out church bodies and ministries for being treated unfairly.

Regardless, believer’s Freedom of Speech rights to ‘peaceably assemble’ are being attacked on a regular basis. In many cities across America Church bodies have been forced to close down while bars, restaurants, casinos and amusement parks have been allowed to stay open. 

In addition, referring to church congregations gathering as being “high risk” while encouraging and praising large gatherings of protestors, rioters, anarchist and looters is absolutely persecution.

Here is what Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch said about this despicable treatment of churches, 

, “The First Amendment prohibits such obvious discrimination against the exercise of religion. The world we inhabit today, with a pandemic upon us, poses unusual challenges. But there is no world in which the Constitution permits Nevada to favor Caesars Palace over Calvary Chapel.”

America was founded on biblical principles to begin with! It would help our great nation to be reminded that freedom to exercise religion and freedom to gather is why America was founded. When we gather as a church, we are standing for our right to gather, while strengthening our unity.

And finally,

You are Peter, and I can guarantee that on this rock I will build my church. And the gates of hell will not overpower it.” –Matthew 16:18 (GW)

Our gathering as the Body of Christ will usher in the last day revival. The greatest outpouring of the Holy Ghost in the history of the church is at the door step, and it starts with the Church of our Lord Jesus Christ assembled in unity.

The devil realizes that a mighty move of God is inevitable, and he is working overtime to keep it from happening. There is absolutely nothing that can stop the Body of Christ when we rise up, under the anointing of the Holy Ghost! 

When we speak in unity, with one voice, and boldly rise up, standing for truth and justice, we will be positioned spiritually to usher in the last day harvest of souls. 

The Lord proclaimed, “He told them, “My house will be called a house of prayer,’ but you’re turning it into a gathering place for thieves!” Matthew 21:13 (GW). 

As the Church leads, we can direct America to become a nation of prayer—leading into a powerful move of God.

Now is not the time to be sleeping spiritually, but instead, it is time for us to identify which tables need to be turned over. Regardless of what persecution we are up against, the gates of hell will never prevail against God’s Church!

Let this message compel you to be a faithful church attender in your local Bible believing, Holy Ghost filled, body of believers. Let this encourage you to move forward with the power and presence of the Holy Ghost to build the Kingdom of God and bring in the last day harvest. 

I speak church bodies gathering in 2021 in the name of Jesus Christ!

Over the past 30 plus years of ministry around the world, we have continued to see the faithfulness of God in every one of the ministry outreaches that we facilitate. I believe that in 2021, we will begin to see an exponential increase of miracles, signs, and wonders, of ministry opportunities, of seeing the lost saved, the broken restored, and family members who have turned away from God are coming back home!

2020 brought many challenges, but God continued to use the ministry of Revival Fires International to reach people AROUND THE WORLD through our ministry outreaches such as…

The Truth For Youth Bible Project

So far we have GIVEN AWAY more than 2.7 million Truth For Youth Bibles to students around the world. This awesome witnessing tool has impacted students from all backgrounds, those who are saved and not saved. In 2020, we have received more decision coupons from students receiving Christ as Savior than any other year! God is moving in the lives of students through this ministry!

Bibles for Troops

Right now, Revival Fires International is helping to provide Bibles for our men and women in uniform worldwide! The Chaplains at the Pentagon are helping to coordinate this giant Bible distribution effort. 

Bibles for Cuba

Did you know that we are actively involved in distributing Bibles in Cuba? Cuba’s Department of Religious Affairs approved Revival Fires International distributing one million Bibles throughout Cuba! Brothers and sisters in Christ in Cuba are receiving Bibles for the very first time!

Bibles for Prison Inmates

Men and women incarcerated in U.S. prisons are hungry for the Word of God. In 2020, Revival Fires continued to distribute Bibles to our prisoners and we are seeing unprecedented salvations! Jesus came to seek and to save that which was lost and we are excited to be a part of what God is doing in the lives of prisoners across the country.

Radio Evangelism

“Dr. Todd is a powerful evangelist! I have never heard anyone preach such truth! I love to listen to him every time he comes on!” We receive testimony after testimony of people who have been touched by our Revival Fires Radio Broadcast on American Family Radio which has a listening audience of over 10.5 million!

Revival Services and Evangelistic Crusades

We are witnessing more miracles, signs, and wonders right now than in more than 33 years of ministry!! I believe that in 2021, as we assemble in the church we will see a move of God like never before! We are looking forward to seeing God outdo our expectations. He is a good God! Please be praying with us for souls to continue to be saved, pray for physical healings, and people who are broken to be delivered as we continue to preach the Gospel in revival services and crusades.

Thank you for praying for us! If you feel led to give a tax-deductible gift to any of these vitally important ministry outreaches, please use the enclosed envelope. We pray God’s blessings over you and your family in 2021!

What if there had never been a Christmas?

Luke 2:11-12 “The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! And you will recognize him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger.”

The Christmas story as described by Luke is under attack today in America and around the globe. Good will toward men and Peace on earth? What happened? Separation of church and state! Atheist sign beside the nativity scene in the Washington capitol. A believer in Florida was fired because she refused to greet the customers with “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas”. A teacher in Texas was sued for giving Truth for Youth Bibles to her students, as Christmas presents. The Seattle airport was sued for having a Christmas tree on display.

All of this in a nation that was founded on Biblical standards.


I don’t mind people celebrating whatever they want to celebrate. It is the elimination of Christmas that is unacceptable. With all of these efforts to do away with Christmas I wanted to take a look at what it would be like without Christmas. What would your life be like without Christmas?

If Christmas had never happened there would be no Christmas family get togethers, no Christmas gifts, Christmas carols, decorations, Christmas trees, Charlie Brown Christmas specials, no Grinch who stole Christmas, no Jimmy Stewart and It’s a Wonderful Life, and, Children would have to go to school the entire month of December. Without Christmas, December 25 would be, just another day!

If there had never been a Christmas, the world would be far different than it is today – in ways you may never have imagined. For example, when Jesus came, He taught His followers to love God, but also their neighbors! (Luke 10:27). Jesus’ followers invented the idea of organized charity.

It was the early Christians that stressed support for widows, orphans, the sick and disabled. They coordinated efforts to help those who were dying. They built, staffed, and paid for hospitals. In recent times, Christ’s followers have founded virtually every charitable organization on earth, including the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, World Relief, World Vision, Samaritan’s Purse, Food for the Hungry, Compassion International and Revival Fires International.

Without the birth of Christ, education would be very different today. Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Yale, and almost every one of the first 123 American colleges and universities were founded by Christians. Hard to imagine those schools that now teach evolution and deny the very existence of God were started as Christian universities.

If there had never been a Christmas, much of the good in this world and that you’ve experienced would be missing. None of our great Christmas memories would have happened. But without Christmas, something far worse wouldn’t have happened: Christ would not have come. I don’t even want to think about life without the birth of Jesus as a man. He came as one of us. Think about it for a moment. JOHN 1:1-5, “In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.”

Here was the creator, there from the beginning of time, the one that everything was made for and nothing was made without, the light on man, and He chose to come to earth as a fragile, vulnerable human. Why would such a sovereign being do that for us? What possible motive could He have had to come and endure such scorn and ridicule. To endure the pain of the cross, only to be rejected by the very people He died for. The answer is found in John 3:16, “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”

It was the God’s love that brought that baby to earth 2,000 years ago. God’s desire to have His creation dwell with Him and worship Him. We can’t fathom the depth of God’s love for us. It is incomprehensible to our limited minds that ANYONE…much less our creator…could love us that much. Especially when mankind treats Him the way we do.

Ephesians 3:14-19, “When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.”

Angie and I love to watch our children open their presents on Christmas morning. The joy in their faces, the anticipation of what’s in those brightly wrapped gifts. Our favorite part of opening Christmas presents is to watch the expressions on our children’s faces as they unwrap that special gifts that was picked out just for them. We want to get our children a good and perfect gift, don’t we? It makes us feel good to give good gifts. What kind of feeling do you think God gets whenever one of His children open up the gift He gave especially for them?

Do you think that any child would leave a gift unopened if they knew it was theirs? Yet, to this day there remains for some an unopened gift from our heavenly Father. A very special one-of-a-kind gift: a personal relationship with Jesus! God wants us all to have communion with Him. He doesn’t want anyone to be without this gift of salvation.

Luke 15:7, “In the same way, there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven’t strayed away!”

Christmas 2020 is right in front of us. The year 2020 has been filled with many challenges. However, right now, we are still able to celebrate the birth of our Saviour here in America.

I believe that we are in for a rough time as Christians but it will be the greatest day for God’s Kingdom. We are being asked to compromise the truths of God’s word, to accept things that are ungodly and unholy in the name of tolerance. There is one thing that God is not tolerant of, and that is unrepentant sin in the believer’s life. We must stand strong for God now more than ever. Be Holy as He is Holy, that’s our call. Listen, He knows when you’ve been bad or good….so be good, for goodness sake!

It is impossible in yourself to live as God wants you to, but I have good news!

1 Peter 3:18 says, “Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but he died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. He suffered physical death, but he was raised to life in the Spirit.”

We must have God’s Spirit living within us, crucifying our flesh and increasing Christ in us. In this, we see the gift OF God to the sinner, and the gift FROM God to the believer.

Luke 11:13 says, “So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him.”

Have you asked, “Do you live in a manner that is yielding to His Spirit? Have you put your flesh to death? Are you being led by the Spirit?”

Romans 8:13, 14, “For if you live by its dictates, you will die. But if through the power of the Spirit you put to death the deeds of your sinful nature, you will live. For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.


If you are reading this newsletter chances are you have already opened God’s free gift of salvation. But if you haven’t, He invites you to do so today. Don’t put it off. None of us are promised tomorrow. And if you haven’t received His gift of the Holy Ghost, He invites you to unwrap that present today. Without the power of the Holy Ghost, these difficult times we are living in will be harder than it has to be.

My younger brother, Cecil Wayne Todd, passed away a few days ago. The last time I saw him he shared the difficulty of his heart condition and I shared with him an update on some difficulties we have been facing. After we shared, wept and prayed, Cecil said, “You know Tim, the season of these difficulties we are both in will end, but the mercy and grace of God will last forever”.

Christmas is right in front of us, as you may be in a difficult season. Your difficult season will end, but God’s mercy and grace, God’s gift of unconditional love for you will last forever.

Merry Christmas from our family to yours.

~ Tim Todd

As we approach Christmas and the 2021 New Year, we have the opportunity to recall and celebrate God’s many blessings through the ministry of Revival Fires International that came as a result of your faithful prayers and financial giving. Your support has been vital for the work we do in the United States and around the world.

This past August, we held our 20th Annual National Truth For Youth Bible Campaign on American Family Radio where we gave away more Truth For Youth Bibles this year than years past. This brings our total to more than 2.7 million Truth for Youth Bibles to young people that committed to give them to unsaved friends in school! To date, we have received more than 30,000 decision cards from youth that have been saved for the very first time!!!

This year has been one of the most incredible and productive global ministry opportunities for us at Revival Fires International with evangelistic crusades around the world, Bible distribution to our U.S. soldiers defending America in the war on terror, and to the people of Cuba that have never had a Bible and many other regions of the world.

In addition, we have continually produced evangelistic content on our Revival Fires radio program on Newstalk radio that airs weekly, immediately following Dave Ramsey, that is producing a tremendous response as we are reaching people that don’t have a relationship with the Lord. Several of these programs have also aired on American Family Radio as well. We also produce a weekly evangelistic Revival Fires Podcast.

We have also been privileged to preach and distribute Truth for Youth Bibles to inmates in prisons across America. A huge part of God’s blessing has been providing us with people like you who join us in this vitally important Kingdom work, encouraging us, praying for us, and generously supporting us. More than anything, we want to thank you. We pray that the Lord will bestow His richest blessings to you and your family as you celebrate God’s goodness and the birth of our Savior this Christmas season!

Friend, is there anything we can partner in prayer with you for? Please let us know!

If you are not already a monthly Flame Partner, please prayerfully consider partnering with us to take the whole Gospel to millions around the world before Jesus comes!

Creating a Thankful Attitude

In the case of most virtues, you can’t quickly develop an attitude of gratefulness. You only become grateful when you develop a pattern of thankfulness as a lifestyle.

“Give thanks to the Lord because he is good, because his mercy endures forever. (1 Chronicles 16:34)

Ephesians 5:18-20 says, “Don’t get drunk on wine, which leads to wild living. Instead, be filled with the Spirit by reciting psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs for your own good. Sing and make music to the Lord with your hearts. Always thank God the Father for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

In the 18th-century classic, A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life, William Law made the following statement:

“Would you know who is the greatest saint in the world? It is not he who prays most or fasts most; it is not he who gives most alms or is most eminent for temperance, chastity, or justice; but it is he who is always thankful to God, who wills everything that God wills, who receives everything as an instance of God’s goodness and has a heart always ready to praise God for it. Could you therefore work miracles, you could not do more for yourself than by this thankful spirit, for it turns all that it touches into happiness.”

Law makes a great point. When you see God at work and respond to what he is doing with thankfulness instead of resistance, you will develop many other virtues he describes.

Everything good in your life comes from God, according to James 1:17, “Every good present and every perfect gift comes from above, from the Father who made the sun, moon, and stars.”

We will become more intimate with the Lord when we understand this truth and focus our lives around the fact that everything good comes from God.

I want to be more thankful and these are some things that, if we will apply these to our lives as a pattern, they will help us to accomplish this:

Consistently have a pattern of being thankful.

We need to be habitual in expressing thankfulness. Having a heart of thankfulness, instead of belly aching and complaining needs to be a pattern in our life. When you see where God has blessed you, express your heartfelt gratitude to the Lord. Be grateful to God for it. Everyone is guilty of belly aching from time to time, however make it a habit to catch yourself when you do, and replace the complaining with expressing gratefulness. By doing so you help your mind and heart to line up with what God’s Word says with regard to being thankful.

Convey Thankfulness in spite of what you are going through personally.

The Apostle Paul speaks to this when he addresses the Thessalonians and encourages them to give thanks in all situations because that is what God’s will is, (1 Thess. 5:18). What is this about? We never see the complete picture. We can’t look at every circumstance and clearly understand why the circumstance is going on. But we can be certain that God is working behind the scenes on your behalf in every circumstance you are facing, and He is working them out for our wellbeing and his glory (Romans 8:28).

No matter what is going on in your life personally, and in our nation, we can thank God for His presence. He is redeeming the circumstance you are facing and protecting us through it. On our own, we focus on the current situation. We rise above the situation when we purposefully look for what God is doing in the middle of it.

A.W. Tozer put it well when he said, “Perhaps it takes a purer faith to praise God for unrealized blessings than for those we once enjoyed or those we enjoy now.”

Give God glory when things are going good in your life.

You may think that is a no brainer, but it is extremely important! We’re conditioned to believe that life will go well for us. When life goes well, we don’t tend to see this as God’s blessing to us. Many times, we don’t recognize that His protection gives us direction and leads us to green pastures and still waters.

Allow the Lord to teach you that a troubling situation can result in a productive end result.

Consider some of the trials you are facing right now and realize that God desires to bring good out of it. Each one of us should take some time to consider the benefits of the trying times in our lives and in our nation. After we spend some time separated from the trying circumstance, we should be able to focus on the good that will come out of your experiences. Many times, you will be able to see how those bad experiences helped you gather strength and momentum for future blessings in your life. Regardless, learning to view your trials through eternity’s perspective, will help you to be more grateful in the midst of difficult times in your life.

When you are around other people, let “being thankful” be a major part of your conversations.

Being thankful needs to impact both our relationship with the Lord and our relationships with the people around us. Rick Warren said it well, “To appreciate means to raise in value. That’s not only true of things, it’s true of people. When you appreciate somebody, you literally raise their value. We ought to appreciate people because it increases their self-worth.” Make it a habit in your life to express thanks to the people that have positively influenced you. Many times, we are guilty of expressing thanks the least, to the people closest to us.

Lean into the strength that thankfulness provides.

There are a lot of individuals who have been through very tough circumstances. I have taken note that those who are the most thankful and have learned to see God’s work regularly show the most perseverance.

Gratefulness is a supernatural enabler. Gratefulness gives us the ability to view our trials and circumstances and wrap our arms around how God is moving. Grateful individuals are not only able to draw strength from gratitude, but they are also able to empower others with their perspective as well because being thankful is contagious! Have a Happy and wonderful Thanksgiving!

Is 1 Corinthians 5 Still a part of God’s Word?

I have spent the past 33 years of full-time evangelistic ministry reaching out to bring lost people to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, to restore the backslider, not to condemn people.

The Apostle Paul writes to the church in Galatia, “Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself lest thou also be tempted.” (Galatians 6:1)

Also, 2 Peter 3:9 says, “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

Those of you who know Angie and I know that we have a deep love for God and for people. My heart is heavy right now and my prayer is that you will hear my heart of compassion with regard to what I’m going to share. 

1 Corinthians 5 has become very controversial as we approach the soon return of Jesus Christ. I believe it is a sign of the times we live in. The Corinthian believers had come to the point that they were putting up with outright sexual sin among people that were a part of the Corinthian church body. According to 1 Corinthians 5:1 there was a man in their church body that was having sexual relations with his dad’s spouse. No church should turn a blind eye to ANY form of sexually immoral sin.   

The bottom line message Paul was conveying in 1 Corinthians 5:2, is that this individual was to be excommunicated from their church body. And not just that man, but Paul goes on to say in 1 Corinthians 5:11, “I meant that you are not to associate with anyone who claims to be a believer yet indulges in sexual sin, or is greedy, or worships idols, or is abusive, or is a drunkard, or cheats people. Don’t even eat with such people.”

In other words, Christians were told that they were not to have anything at all to do with him, or anyone that has a pattern of engaging in the above said sins, and yet they continued to proclaim to be a believer. The believer was instructed not to even have a meal with those people. 

Spiritually, the expulsion of these individuals would translate into them being “turned over to Satan for the destruction of their flesh”. In other words, removed from the church, into Satan’s sphere, for the purpose of their spirit being saved on the day of the Lord, according to 1 Corinthians 5:5, “Then you must throw this man out and hand him over to Satan so that his sinful nature will be destroyed and he himself will be saved on the day the Lord returns.”

By doing so the Corinthian church body would make sure these people were washed clean of the “old leaven” that would run the risk, or likelihood, of spreading throughout the church body, 1 Corinthians 5:6, 7: “…Don’t you realize that this sin is like a little yeast that spreads through the whole batch of dough? Get rid of the ‘old yeast’ by removing this wicked person from among you. Then you will be like a fresh batch of dough made without yeast, which is what you really are. Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed for us.”  

The Apostle Paul had previously taken the action of judging this individual according to 1 Corinthians 5:3, “Even though I am not with you in person, I am with you in the Spirit. And as though I were there, I have already passed judgment on this man.”

The  Corinthian church body was also supposed to pass judgement on him and others in the same spiritual situation, by removing them from the church body as Paul instructed the Church of Corinth in 1 Corinthians 5:12-13, “It isn’t my responsibility to judge outsiders, but it certainly is your responsibility to judge those inside the church who are sinning. God will judge those on the outside; but as the Scriptures say, “You must remove the evil person from among you.”

It seems that there are few in the body of Christ that are willing to adhere to what the Lord requires of us with regard to this passage of scripture. And that is a shame because it appears that the Apostle Paul was taken back by the sexual sin, but he was even more taken back by the attitude of the Church of Corinth with regard to the person committing the sin and continuing to claim to be a Christian. 

Today, many in the church will tell you that applying the biblical concept of 1 Corinthians 5 is expressing ‘a lack of love’, or ‘a lack of grace’ toward the person that continues in sexual sin. 

What God says in 1 Corinthians 5:5, (THAT HE IS REQUIRING FOR US TO DO), with an individual in the church that continues in a pattern of sexual sin, sounds so ‘abrasive and unloving’: “Then you must throw this man out and hand him over to Satan so that his sinful nature will be destroyed and he himself will be saved on the day the Lord returns.”  

…hand him over to Satan?…purify yourselves of this individual?…judge those inside?…excommunicate the evil individual…? “That all sounds so harsh. Where’s the grace? Where’s the love?”

Here are some of the responses I hear people use when it comes to applying 1 Corinthians 5: “You are just not showing the grace of God.” -or- “Jesus loves them just the way they are, and you should too.” -or- “God’s mercy endures in their life.” -or- “Tim, you remember when you were living in sin, we didn’t, (desert you), turn our back on you.” -or- “We are all sinners and if you judge them, God said He is going to judge you.” -or- “We should continue to carry on a friendship relationship with them and speak truth into them.” -or- “We should love the sinner and hate their sin”.  

With today’s popular doctrine, putting into action the concept of 1 Corinthians 5 is almost nonexistent among believers. What the Apostle Paul requires has the appearance of not expressing the love, forgiveness and grace of God.

I’m convinced that it delays the process of restoration when a believer continues to maintain a relationship with someone that continues to live their life in habitual sin, and yet claims to be in right standing with God. I also believe that God will hold believers accountable who decide they have a “better way than 1 Corinthians 5” to handle those people.   

In addition, there is a church on just about every street corner, many of which are willing to welcome with open arms, a person who refuses to turn from their pattern of sin and yet continuing to claim they are in right standing with God. 

When the Corinthian church was in existence there may have been only a handful of available churches to attend. Today we have a tremendous amount of church bodies. It breaks my heart, but many in some of these church bodies are willing to welcome with open arms anybody and everybody that claims to be a Christian, even if they refuse to turn from their ongoing sin that is destroying their life and the lives of those around them.   

Some like to say, “The most effective way to get someone to turn away from their habitual sin is to keep them sitting in church so they can continue to hear the Word.” Some like to say, “If we sever ties with them and kick them out of the church, they are cutoff from the Bible that will eventually transform their life.” 

In today’s society, applying 1 Corinthians 5 is difficult but important in the church. It is so much easier for us, as believers, to hide behind the spiritual terms of grace, love, mercy and forgiveness, instead of lining up with God’s prescription in 1 Corinthians 5, for an individual who claims to be a Christian and yet continues in a pattern of sexual sin.  

Please allow me to give clarity to what the Apostle Paul is conveying to us in 1 Corinthians 5. Paul declares in 1 Corinthians 5:9, 11, “(9) When I wrote to you before, I told you not to associate with people who indulge in sexual sin… (11) I meant that you are not to associate with anyone who claims to be a believer yet indulges in sexual sin, or is greedy, or worships idols, or is abusive, or is a drunkard, or cheats people. Don’t even eat with such people.”

Paul said not to even have a connection with an individual that calls themselves a believer but refuses to turn away from their sexual sin, or greed, or idolatry, or is abusive, or is a drunkard, or an individual that is not truthful. Paul went as far as to say in 1 Corinthians 5:11, “Don’t even have a meal with them”.   

My heart is broken because of the many pictures I’ve seen on social media in recent days, of individuals that fit Paul’s 1 Corinthians 5 description, claiming to be Christian but living in a pattern, a lifestyle, of sexual immorality, and yet, they are surrounded by spiritual leaders and Christians. 

Let me be clear, Paul isn’t talking about an individual that just slips into this sin activity and gets right. Instead, he is referring to someone who is living in a pattern of habitual sexual sin, or being a greedy person, or being a drunkard, etc.  In other words, these are people that systematically participate in a pattern of blatant sinful activity. This is an individual claiming to be a Christian who has a pattern of being sexually immoral and says, “Oh, I’ll just repent later”, or has somehow justified in their heart and mind that their sin is alright in God’s eyes even though the Bible says otherwise. These are individuals that live one way in the church building and a different way outside of the church building. They are recognized as a ‘struggling Christian’, but their lifestyle makes a liar out of their lips.   

Paul declares that true to life disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ do not even associate with such individuals.

The Apostle Paul is not referring to an individual that slips into these sins and submits to authority and receives restoration, but instead, Paul is referring to an individual that is living in a pattern of one or more of these behaviors and they refuse to turn from their sin.   

In spite of what God’s Word says, some like to justify their actions that are in opposition to God’s Word, by saying, “The Lord is leading me to keep a relationship with that person.” Let me tell you something that most all of you already know: The Lord will never lead you to handle a person in a manner that is in opposition to His Word. 

In 1 Corinthians 5:4 when the believers came together, they were to give this individual over to Satan. Paul doesn’t really expound on the details about this, however, one thing that is certainly and abundantly clear, he is calling on that church body to banish this individual from their church body, turning him over to Satan’s dominion.   

The actual act of banishing this individual from the fellowship is followed by an agreement by the believers to NOT be connected to, or even have a meal with, this individual. When Paul says “even” eating infers that he means private meals instead of partaking of communion, which would also be included. The expression of ‘association’ and ‘eating’ speak of the more intimate expressions of Christian fellowshipping. For example, not giving an invitation to that individual to come to a growth group or Bible study, not inviting them over for a meal, or accepting an invite to go out to eat with them. 

It is so very important to understand that this path is motivated by the love of God. The motivation for this spiritual concept is to see this individual get in right relationship with Jesus Christ according to 1 Corinthians 5:5. A lot of people call this ‘tough’ love, but regardless, it is love. An individual living in a pattern of a sinful lifestyle and yet claiming to be a Christian, above all, needs to reckon with their hypocritical actions and repent of their sin.   

In addition, applying 1 Corinthians 5 is motivated by love for the rest of the congregation. The Apostle Paul uses the imagery and language of ‘leaven’ in 1 Corinthians 5:6 which ‘leavens’ the whole batch. Leaven that is not good, pollutes the whole batch of dough. 

More often than not, when we deal with someone in the church body that refuses to turn away from their sin, we make the mistake of focusing solely on the well-being of the person caught in the sin. We make a huge mistake by thinking that we need to keep that person in the body so we can minister to them, in spite of the fact that they continue to stay in their pattern of habitual sin. We allow them to go on ministry outings with other believers in the body; we let them keep attending their Bible study; encourage their Christian friends to keep meeting up with them for ball games, meals, birthday celebrations, etc. This approach is in direct opposition to what the Apostle Paul says to do!   

Staying connected to the individual who claims to be a believer, while they refuse to turn from their pattern of habitual sin, is a destructive and corruptive influence to those they continue to stay in relationship with! To be in a friendship relationship with a person who claims to be a Christian yet behaves otherwise is in direct opposition to God’s Word! 

1 Corinthians 15:33 says, “Do not be deceived: Bad company corrupts good morals.” According to Paul, it is spiritually devastating for you to hang around with people who blatantly continue in their sin and yet claim to be a Christian. For you to hang out with them also denies the reality of their integrity and character as being ‘unleavened’: “Get rid of the old “yeast” by removing this wicked person from among you. Then you will be like a fresh batch of dough made without yeast, which is what you really are. Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed for us.” 1 Corinthians 5:7.   

This passage of scripture does not promise that if you follow this course of action to a “T” that this individual will for sure get saved. But by applying the important principles of 1 Corinthians 5 you will definitely protect the rest of the church from this person’s influence.

So many times, this person I’ve described simply goes to one of the other churches in the city. It would be helpful if the leadership of the church they left would make the other church body aware. Regardless, the original church has been saved from the devastating and immoral influence of that person.   

As a believer we have to protect ourselves from the false mindset that we have more wisdom than God does with regard to how we are to deal with the person who claims to be a believer and yet continues in habitual sin. It’s not a matter of whether you love them. Of course, you love them…you love them so much that you are willing to apply 1 Corinthians 5 to their life, knowing that is what God requires. It’s not a matter of “Oh, you’re just not showing enough grace”. It’s a matter of doing what God requires. It’s not a matter of forgiveness. Of course, God forgives them, and you need to forgive them or God won’t even answer your prayers. It’s a matter of doing what God requires. 

I realize that people have strong reactions to 1 Corinthians 5. There are many that reject the mindset that severing a relationship with someone is the right approach. They argue that “it’s not what Jesus would do”, and that it has the appearance of not being Christ like.  In spite of that logic, 1 Corinthians 5 is the most loving approach as it applies to an individual as described in this message. Applying 1 Corinthians 5 is loving for the individual concerned and loving for the church body.  Calling for repentance without a heart change is not expressing real love for a person and will lead to devastation.   

And the Word of God backs itself up, too:

“If a believer does something wrong, go, confront him when the two of you are alone. If he listens to you, you have won back that believer. But if he does not listen, take one or two others with you so that every accusation may be verified by two or three witnesses. If he ignores these witnesses, tell it to the community of believers. If he also ignores the community, deal with him as you would a heathen or a tax collector.” (Matthew 18:15-17)  

“And now, dear brothers and sisters, we give you this command in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ: Stay away from all believers who live idle lives and don’t follow the tradition they received from us.” (2 Thessalonians 3:6)

My questions to you as a believer, are these questions: Who are you hanging around with? Who are you eating meals with? Who are you attending church with? If it is the individual that is described in 1 Corinthians 5, that continues to live in a pattern of habitual sin and they refuse to repent and turn away from their sin, and they claim to be a Christian, then you are fellowshipping with people that God has clearly commanded you to stay clear of.   

And to the person that continues to live in a pattern of habitual sin and you refuse to repent and turn away from your sin, and yet, you claim to be in right relationship with the Lord:

I want you to know that I love you! I forgive you! But I must say, there is a very high price to pay for low living. It is not God’s will for you to think that you can live in opposition to God’s Word and continue to claim to be a Christian. It is a destructive path and God will honor his Word. If you do not truly repent, the end result for you will be Proverbs 29:1, “He, that being often reproved but hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.”

Proverbs 29:1 is not what God has planned for your life! This is not what God has written in the books of Heaven for your life, your purpose, your destiny, your calling!

God’s remedy for you, is for you to repent, turn away from, RUN FROM, your sin! If you truly repent, God readily has available to you, redemption, reconciliation and restoration. My heart has always been, and always will be, to offer ‘restoration upon repentance’, which is also the heart of the Father.

With that in mind, if you are reading this article, and you are living in a sinful lifestyle as described in 1 Corinthians 5, and you are willing to genuinely repent, TURN AWAY FROM YOUR PATTERN OF SINFUL ACTIVITY, Angie and I stand ready and willing to help you get back on track and receive the spiritual & emotional restoration you need.

Revival Fires are burning bright as we continue to preach the Gospel around the world. We are witnessing more miracles in our revivals right now, than in more than thirty years of being on the evangelistic field! Signs, miracles, and wonders are taking place in every service! We serve a mighty God!  

As we continue to preach the Gospel to those who are hurting and desperate for a move of God in their lives, I ask that you would partner with us in prayer for the following ministry areas:

We have given away more than 300,000 Bibles to our U.S. Soldiers defending America in the war on terror. These men and women lay their lives on the line on a daily basis for our freedom to worship, our freedom to vote, and our freedom to raise our families in one of the leading countries in the world. The very least we could do is show our support for them by providing them with the Word of God. If you would like to help us continue to provide Bibles for our troops, please click the below link:


Did you know that we have been given special permission by the Cuban Department of Religious affairs to print and distribute Bibles to people who have never had a Bible before?

The people of Cuba are getting Bibles for the first time in 48 years! 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! With your help, we can continue to provide more than 1.4 million Bibles to the precious people of Cuba.


Today, we have distributed MORE THAN 2.7 million Bibles to students around the world and have received more than 25,000 decision coupons from students who have given their lives to Christ as a result of receiving the Truth For Youth Bible. We are honored to continue to receive testimonies like the one below:

Hi, my name is John. I am seventeen years old. I am locked up in the Pemiscot County Jail in Caruthersville, Missouri. Some Christians came to the jail, sang to the inmates and prayed for me. They left me a Truth For Youth Bible they got off of the radio and I started reading the comics. One of them fit my life so much. God used the comic to lead me to Him.. I gave my heart to Jesus four days ago and I am loving it. God bless everyone who had a part in making The Truth For Youth Bible.

Will you prayerfully consider giving a tax-deductible financial gift to help us distribute TFY Bibles to students who call to receive a free Bible? If so, please click one of the links below:



The first sermon that Jesus preached after returning from the wilderness was out of the book of Isaiah chapter 61. He read, “The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me…He to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners.” He was not speaking only of physical prisoners, but spiritual prisoners. Prisoners bound to their sin. We have been given the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus in prisons across America by handing out Bibles to inmates who feel lost, forgotten, hopeless, and desperate for truth in their lives. Every week we receive letters from inmates across America who have given their life to Christ as a result of receiving a Bible from.

Do Not Be Deceived

Is the devil lying to you? Absolutely! There are a lot of voices and views loudly screaming for your attention. You need the leading of the Holy Spirit to help you distinguish God’s voice from every other voice.

In the end times, God’s Word declares to us that a lot of people will fall into deception. You don’t have to be one of those people!

The Bible continuously alerts us about the dangers of being deceived, including in our everyday personal lives.

Protecting yourself and your family from being deceived gets you positioned to withstand the devil’s trickery in the last days. The meaning of deception is that those who are being lied to don’t realize they are being lied to. It’s extremely important that, as Christians, we are protecting ourselves from the snares of the devil  by saturating ourselves with the Word of God! 

These are some important things that will help protect you from being deceived and also to build you up in the strength of the Lord!

Nobody is exempt from being deceived. If you have this idea that you are immune to being deceived, that is an indication that you have already been deceived.

When you participate in an act that is in opposition to God’s Word and you are aware that it is in opposition to God’s Word that is not being deceived. That’s making a wrong decision. The only deception in this is the mindset that there will not be a price to pay for your action.

Being deceived is when you get engulfed in an act that is in opposition to the Word of God but you convince yourself that it is truth. Timothy said, “A time will come when people will not listen to accurate teachings. Instead, they will follow their own desires and surround themselves with teachers who tell them what they want to hear. People will refuse to listen to the truth and turn to myths.” (2 Timothy 4:3-4).

“Following their own desires” are the people that only want to be told what they want to hear. They are people that desire to only hear the part of the Gospel that fits the lifestyle they want to continue to live and the flow of society. This results in making a concoction that consists of truth and falsehood until the depiction of Jesus and Christianity is nonexistent.

Here’s what being deceived really means: believing as truth what you didn’t believe previously. This is exactly what took place with Adam and Eve. 

The nature of being deceived is a work of fear that starts with doubting. Adam and Eve believed what God said about the tree of the knowledge of good and evil until the devil got them questioning what God said. They began to pull away from the truth as a result of their own doubt: Is that what He really said? Is He trying to keep something from us? Instead of going back to the Lord, they let doubt pull them away. That is being deceived!

Realizing how easy it is to be drawn into being deceived, Paul declared boldly, “take heed” in 1 Timothy 4:16. 

Taking heed means to beware, perceive and consider carefully. We must make preparation beforehand to analyze through the Bible those things that present themselves as truth. You need to be able to determine fast and precisely by utilizing the knowledge from God’s Word that you have hidden in your heart.

Protecting your heart against being deceived is proactive. Don’t wait around for a situation to arise and then make an attempt to figure out if it’s truth or deception. Make preparation beforehand.

Saturate yourself in God’s Word. Do not allow the world’s system override what you are taking into your life from the Word of God. Remaining steadfast in prayer and communing with God is the most effective way for you to prepare for standing firm in these troubled times.

When a politically correct idea comes along, for example, the lie that says, homosexual perversion is an acceptable lifestyle, you won’t be deceived by the cultural norms. In the light of the Truth of the Word of God that you have hidden in your heart, you will stand strong!

When you view something through the lens your own perspective, you are positioning yourself to be deceived. As Christians, we have our own barometer, a rock solid foundation on which to base our perceptions. That barometer is the Bible. 

We are living in troubled times. The Bible clearly lets us know us that masses in the church will be led astray (Luke 21:8). Jesus said that to help us, not to try to strike fear in our hearts. When we make preparation beforehand to fight the devil and his schemes, we are guarding ourselves from being deceived!

Anytime a suggestion, ideology or belief is introduced, you don’t have to wonder if it’s truth. Just let the Bible be your barometer, and you will quickly know. The Bible is the way you protect your life from being deceived!

A lot of people are ready and willing to deceive you. Bringing deceit simply means pressuring a person to accept as truth, something that is not true. This is taking place now more than ever before. 

Many people want to believe it is okay with God to vote for candidates whose views are in opposition to the Bible. Those individuals are being deceived.

Many Christians have fallen into deception by thinking homosexuality and abortion are somehow acceptable. That’s ‘being deceived’ because it isn’t based on the barometer of the truth of the Bible.

Being deceived has no regard whatsoever for God’s law of sowing and reaping. To be deceived is to think you can plant pumpkin seeds and reap a harvest bananas, to believe you can plant seeds of selfishness and reap a harvest of generosity, or that you can plant seeds of anger and reap peace.

Galatians 6:7 says God is not mocked; whatever a man sows, he will also reap. You can’t sow one thing and expect to reap a harvest of something else.

In addition, there is a difference between validity and truth. Something that is valid is not absolute in and of itself. As an example: It is a valid fact that COVID-19 is real and has killed people. However, the truth is that Jesus bore COVID-19 for you on the cross of Calvary, and when you have given your life to Jesus Christ and you have faith in what the Lord did for you, COVID-19 ceases to threaten you.

When the Bible is your barometer you are protected from being deceived.

To protect yourself from being deceived, you are going to have to walk by faith and not by what you are seeing. This will keep you out of the deception.

Difficulties are inevitable. Everybody comes up against difficulties. What sets us apart from others is that we know the truth. The Lord has nothing but victory for you and don’t let the devil convince you otherwise!

Satan will try to convince you to anticipate defeat, failure, sickness and disease, broken relationships, and financial trouble. When you walk according to faith, you trust in the truth of the Word of God! And the Word of God declares…

 “I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13)

“But nothing is impossible for God.” (Luke 1:37)

“As far as possibilities go, everything is possible for the person who believes.” (Mark 9:23)

Our faith is what wins the victory over the world.” (1 John 5:4)

“But I thank God, who always leads us in victory because of Christ.” (2 Corinthians 2:14)

The Word of God is truth, and the Bible declares that we have already won the battle through Christ!

Protect yourself from the lies of the devil by applying these four Biblical principles to your life. Ask the Holy Ghost to direct you into the truth of everything God has for you. 

Be watchful, and saturate yourself in the Word. Refuse to accept as truth ANYTHING that is in opposition to God’s Word! Be spiritually strong from now until the Lord’s return. Protect yourself from being deceived by the devil and his cohorts!

On August 13 I had the privilege of conducting an interview with Louisiana Attorney General, Jeff Landry.

In the interview we discussed the importance of students exercising their religious freedoms on public school campuses as they return to school in the midst of Covid 19 and racial unrest.

With the fear and extended isolation resulting from the coronavirus pandemic, the racial unrest, violence and vandalism in cities across America, young people need real hope that comes only through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We are giving young people that hope through the massive distribution of the Truth for Youth Bible.

Landry said, “We are seeing the fruits of the labor of taking God out of our schools with all of the carnage and violence…and trying to replace God with some form of government. I don’t know if anyone who can give me an example of when you bring Christ more into your life, that violence and unrest lives. You see the opposite. The more Christ is brought in, the more peace comes over people”. Landry added, “Thank you for what you are doing with the distribution of Truth for Youth Bibles in America’s public schools”.

The Truth for Youth (TFY) Bible consist of the entire New Testament along with 100 pages of powerful graphic novels, (comic stories), dealing with many issues that young people are faced with on a daily basis such as bullying, suicide, sexual purity, abortion, homosexuality, evolution, witchcraft, honor, cutting, sexting, cyber bullying, school violence, pluralism, drugs, drunkenness and peer pressure. More than 2.7 million copies of the TFY have already been distributed.

Displayed on the back cover of the TFY are the “10 Student’s Legal Rights on Public School Campuses”. We put number four in bold to let young people know, they do legally have the right to distribute religious literature, (Bibles), on campus during non-instructional time.

On August 3-7, we conducted our 20th annual, National Truth For Youth (TFY) Bible Campaign on American Family Radio! We were able to give away thousands of TFY Bibles to students who pledged to give them away to their unsaved friends in school. Please continue to pray for each student who receives a TFY Bible, that they will experience God like never before!

Cuba’s Department of Religious Affairs approved Revival Fires International distributing one million Bibles throughout Cuba! In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, we continue to make sure that the precious people of Cuba who do not have a Bible, are able to have their own personal Bible for the very first time!


We have the privilege not only to provide TFY Bibles for students across America, but also to prison inmates who are desperate and hungry for a move of God in their lives! Please pray for revival to sweep across our nation’s prisons, and that inmates who were once bound by addiction, sin, and shame, to be set on fire for Jesus Christ!


The Revival Fires Radio Broadcast airs on TALK RADIO, KMLB AM and FM at 7:30 AM every Sunday, following The Dave Ramsey Show, and on American Family Radio’s 181 stations in over 30 states with 10.5 million listeners!!! PLEASE PRAY FOR SOULS TO BE SAVED!

She could have chosen anyone.

As Rachel stood in school that day, holding a Truth For Youth Bible, she could have chosen anyone as its recipient. But she chose Alex, a prominent gang leader at school.

When she approached to give him the Bible, Alex was indignant. He spat and cursed at her in front of everyone, humiliating her. However, this did not sway her resolve, and she left the Bible with him before walking away.

Although not many things are worth approaching an intimidating gang leader, spreading the truth of Jesus Christ is worth it, which is why Revival Fires International (RFI) hopes to inspire other students around the country to take the same courageous stand for the gospel.

Within RFI, one of the most important outreaches is called Truth For Youth (TFY). Each school year, Truth For Youth New Testaments are given to students in every state around the country to spread the truth about Jesus Christ.

Since the project’s beginning in 1995, TFY has distributed more than 2.5 million Bibles to students worldwide. Additionally, the ministry has received decision cards from over 25,000 individuals who have made a decision to follow Jesus.

“The light of the gospel is shining in those schools,” said Tim Todd, president of RFI. “I’ve seen young people who have become bolder than they have ever been before. I’ve seen a shift for the Bible, where the Bibles are distributed in the schools.”

During August 3-7, American Family Radio (AFR) will be partnering with TFY to help spread the gospel throughout schools in America. This partnership has thrived for 20 years and has seen more than 1 million Bibles distributed.

“It’s been AFR’s privilege,” said Jim Stanley, AFR general manager, “to join Revival Fires International in providing more than 1 million Truth For Youth Bibles over the past 20 years. This year we hope to put thousands more Bibles into the hands of youth across the country to use as an evangelical tool to introduce their friends to Christ. This is part of our mission statement: that AFR aid the church in its task of fulfilling the Great Commission.”

In the early 1960s, a series of court cases took Bibles out of schools, starting a resistance in public education to the Word of God that continues today. Many believers are often not allowed to step foot on school campuses to hand out Bibles.

“The way that the law is interpreted,” Todd said, “adults are not able to go on school campuses to pass out religious literature.”

For the TFY campaign, Todd and his ministry have developed a legal response to this barrier. Instead of handing out the Bibles themselves on school campuses, Todd will hold a service at a local church and give the Bibles to Christian students. Todd then challenges those students to take the Bibles to the hallways and lunch rooms of their schools and distribute them to unbelieving classmates.

“We encourage [them] not to disrupt class,” said Todd, “but before school, during lunch hour, between classes, [they can] get the Bibles to friends in school who are not serving the Lord. One way I like to describe it is ‘legally smuggling’ Bibles into America’s public schools.”

To better equip and empower each student in this outreach, the back of each TFY Bible contains an additional invaluable tool.

“We print the student’s legal rights on public school campuses on the back cover,” said Todd. “We put Number 4 in bold, and it says that young people have the right to give out Bibles on campus during non-instructional time.”

Along with a complete New Testament, each TFY Bible contains faith based comics at the front, which have impacted many students nationwide.

“[These are] powerful comic stories,” Todd described, “that deal with the truth about things that young people are up against every day. Things like drugs, drunkenness, peer pressure, pornography, sexual impurity, homosexuality, cutting, sexting, bullying, school violence, suicide, and witchcraft.”

Todd goes on to say, “The ‘Sexual Revolution’ started in the late 1960s, but it has flourished in media, culture, and, even school curriculum, ever since. Today, on average, children experience their first exposure to pornography by age 11! In a bygone era, children were protected from early exposure to violence and sexual activity, but today’s professional sexualists celebrate promiscuity and unimaginable forms of sexual expression.”

Todd said, “This is why the TFY graphic novel stories on the subjects of sexual purity, pornography, homosexuality and other subjects are so vitally important. These powerful comic stories address the prevalence of an over-sexualized world and many other issues.”

Each comic appropriately portrays the worldly aspect of the above topics along with what it looks like to turn from sin and walk with Jesus Christ.

Similar to those in other places and walks of life, the youth in schools desperately need the Word of God in their lives. Joseph Parker is the director of outreach and intercession for American Family Association and hosts The Hour of Intercession, a daily prayer-focused program on AFR.

“When a young person begins to read—really read and spend time in the Word,” said Parker, “The power of God found in His eternal Word can begin to guide and transform his or her heart and life wonderfully.”

Parker asks a very powerful and important question: “Why does the devil work so hard to keep the Word of God out of public schools?” The answer is obvious. “The devil understands that there is tremendous power, grace, and mercy in God’s Word.” Parker is right, and Romans 1:16 confirms it: “I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.”

The Word of God contains the power to transform any life, and so many students walking the halls of public schools are in tremendous need of this transformation. Alex, the gang leader, was no exception.

After he received the Bible from Rachel, he sat down during lunch hour and read the comics at the front, each of which pointed to his need for Christ. When the day was over, he approached Rachel, this time with a changed heart.

He then promptly asked for more copies, so that he could give them to each member of his gang. That night, Alex showed up at the church where Tim Todd was conducting a revival service, and he gave his heart to Jesus. The following night, Alex returned to the church, this time with all 12 members of his gang, all of whom accepted Christ as their personal Savior.
Todd is confident this is a battle the Lord has already won.

“We’re not fighting for victory,” Todd exclaimed. “We’re fighting from victory! These young people who are going on our school campuses, who are armed with the Word of God, are taking back what the devil has stolen.”

“When you’ve got the truth that is going onto school campuses, we’re seeing God honor His Word and setting people free. As a result of the freedom that these young people are receiving, we’re seeing a difference on the school campuses in those schools where the gospel is shining bright.”


OUR 20TH ANNUAL NATIONAL TRUTH FOR YOUTH BIBLE WEEK ON AMERICAN FAMILY RADIO BEGINS AUGUST 3-7!!! Every year during our TFY Bible week on AFR, we give thousands of Bibles away to students who pledge to give the TFY Bible to an unsaved friend at their school. Mark your calendars!

As we prepare for this ministry outreach we ask that you pray with us. Pray that this will be the largest distribution of TFY Bibles that we have ever seen in the history of this project! Pray that every student who receives a TFY Bible will radically give their life to Jesus!! Pray that this virus will lift and that students can safely return to school WITHOUT fear!
