Attending the Decision Texas, Lone Star Tour reception was a real blessing as I was inspired, encouraged, shocked, and saddened by the things Franklin Graham had to say. He showed us videos of the horrendous flood in Houston caused by Hurricane Harvey. He showed the many people working to help the people who lost everything in that storm. They prayed for, cleaned, fed, and comforted those suffering from such great loss. Franklin Graham said that Samaritans Purse would be there for about three years helping people.
Franklin Graham showed videos of their relief work in Puerto Rico, Dominica, and Barbuda and said most of the home were leveled especially in Barbuda where all the homes were destroyed. The devastation is unbelievable.
He said that they had a request from the United Nations headquarters to set up a field hospital eleven miles from Mosel in Iraq. Isis has killed and maimed so many people in Mosel there was a great need for a hospital as there were none available for these poor injured people. Refugees were fleeing Mosel heading into the desert to get away from the bloodshed and the Isis sharp shooters were targeting the children of the refuges killing and maiming them. LITTLE CHILDREN! It took thirty days to set up the hospital and staff it. There were sixty doctors and nurses on duty 24/7 and operated on more than four thousand people that fled Mosel trying to get away from Isis. The hospital compound was in shelling distance from Mosel so they had to erect a fifteen foot concrete blast wall around the ten acre hospital compound with solid steel gates and was guarded by the Kurds. Franklin Graham said that there were children screaming and crying, some had lost arms, legs, eyes, shot in the head and the doctors were relentless in helping these children. He asked all of us to pray hard for these people.
The Florida Keys was one of the areas hard hit by the hurricanes of recent date. This area is heavily homosexually dominated. There were people who were homosexual who suffered damage and lost their homes. The Samaritans Purse disaster relief chaplains prayed with and for these people and some surrendered to Christ. Praise the Lord!
Samaritans Purse and the BGEA are constantly helping people all over the world and have invitations from governments such as North Vietnam to go preach to them. They have a wounded warrior camp in Alaska and have helped hundreds of veterans and their husbands or wives to reconcile their marriages and show them how they can still live productive lives. Hundreds have received Christ through that program.
Pray for Samaritans Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association! I think it is amazing that none of what they do ever is reported in the news. God just continues to use them and bless them daily! They set a great example for all Christians showing that if we work together more can be done in serving our Lord Jesus Christ.
Continue to pray for our nation that it will turn back to God!
Psalms 33:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD!

THE UNSAVED OF THE WORLD NEED YOUR PRAYERS!
ETERNAL LIFE MEANS ONCE SAVED ALWAYS SAVED OR THERE WOULD BE NO ETERNAL LIFE!
There are those who teach that a believer could fall from grace and lose his salvation and they search for different translations, commentaries to find verses that say what they want it to say rather than what God ordained it to say. There is nothing wrong with using these various materials for research of God’s Truth but all too often it is manipulated. It is the Holy Spirits job to give us understanding of what Jesus teaches and to reveal the Truth. Millennialism has a real problem accepting the old ancient ways of the Bible.
UNDERSTAND THAT ETERNAL LIFE IS NOT ETERNAL LIFE IF IT IS NOT ETERNAL LIFE!
John 10:28 And I give them eternal life; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.
1 John 2:25 And this is the promise that He has promised us — eternal life.
Eternal life is a gift Jesus gives when one receives Jesus into their heart (Romans 6:23 The gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.) an confesses that he is a sinner.
1 Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
Romans 10:9-13 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.”
To those who are trying so hard to sound so intellectual and theological to the point they actually say and believe that no one can understand the Bible unless someone like themselves explains it to them. However, the Bible tells plainly what God has to say about why He uses preachers.
1 Corinthians 1:18-21 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
The Bible always explains itself and reveals to our hearts what God wants us to know.
Hebrews 10:16 “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,”
Dear heavenly Father write upon the fleshly table of our hearts Your spiritual truths and revelations as You promised You would thousands of years ago and even now in the new covenant according to Your own Word write your truth in our hearts and minds revealing Your glory to us individually. In Jesus name, amen!
I want to thank all of you who joined me in praying on the INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER FOR THE UNSAVED-2017 hosted by “INOE” and give God the praise that only He deserves for making it such a success!
Thank you and God bless you but never stop praying for the saving gospel of Jesus Christ to reach the unsaved people of the world!
Lord God you are the one I want to thank most of all for your great love for all people and offering eternal salvation and to all who answer the call. As it says in “John 3:16 God so loved the world…”. Thank You for all those You sent to help reach the unsaved by their prayers. In Jesus name amen!
What is the most important thing to you in life?
God, love, family, health, friends, happiness, knowledge…..?
The following comment was made by an individual responding to a recent poll about how important God is in our lives:
“What has he done for me? Is my life depending on him or is my life depending on what I’m doing with it? My life is well without believing in him. I really don’t care about someone I never knew, because if I do I should care for all people I don’t even know. And doing that is something not very sane. It’s not normal. I don’t care for people I don’t know because they can be all bad as far as I know.”
Proverbs 30:3 I neither learned wisdom Nor have knowledge of the Holy One.
WOW! Do you see what this person is saying? IT IS NOT NORMAL TO CARE ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE! He does not want to be abnormal and care about God, who he does not know, may mean that he would have to care about other people, who this person does not know. How sad! This is the epitome of an unsaved person who does not want to know the God who sent His only Son to take on the flesh of a man of this world and sacrifice Himself on the CROSS spilling His blood for the sins of the world so that person can be saved from eternal judgment. Why would he want that?
Ecclesiastes 6:12 For who knows what is good for man in life, all the days of his vain life which he passes like a shadow? Who can tell a man what will happen after him under the sun?
Those who do not know God and say that He does not exist and like to make disparaging remarks about those who do believe in God are scared to the core to actually try to know God because they are intensely afraid that they may find out that God really exists. They only think in terms of an entity of God in a single dimension. They identify God as a mythical entity. In other words they don’t know much about the subject of God, only what they imagine He is like in their own minds.
Job 18:21 Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, And this is the place of him who does not know God.”
How do you feel about yourself?
Are you normal or abnormal? Down deep inside where only you know how you think and feel, do you have a perfect feeling about yourself? Have you successfully fulfilled your dreams in life? Have you been a failure about any important things? Are you so filled with joy that there is no room for more? Do you feel an emptiness that needs filling? What do you really care about? These are all important questions that anyone should be concerned about! It doesn’t make any difference where on earth you live; they are all pertinent to you.
Job 42: 2, 5-6 ” I know that You can do everything, And that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You “. I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees You. Therefore I abhor myself, And repent in dust and ashes.”
Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.
You are hearing His voice now! This is how God speaks to your heart! Today is a day of salvation! God wants more than anything to give you His blessings. He will share His glory with you if you will receive Him into your heart.
I pray that your response will be to allow God into your life so he can pour out His grace upon you, that you may have eternal life from this time forward. Great rewards await you. Let this be the beginning of your new life.
In the name of Jesus, Amen!
