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!
I was reading an article by Billy Graham where he said that our nation had become so evil that we need a great revival. Billy Graham quote, “I am convinced that unless we have a great spiritual revival, we cannot endure much longer.” He goes on to say, “We must return to Christ, He is the only answer”! Yes, we need to have faith in Jesus, so let our faith do its spiritual work. The bible says in: Matthew 17:20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. Therefore, faith the size of a grain of mustard seed is strong enough to move a nation back to God. This nation is in moral crises. We as a nation need to get on our knees and submit to Jesus Christ. Pray that the faith of Jesus in us will turn the tide of lawlessness, corruption, greed, and hate that is so prevalent to “love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law”. Galations 5:22-23
Now is the time for Christians to glow with the very body of Jesus Christ in them in every aspect of their lives. Show forgiveness when abused, turn the other cheek when confronted, pray for those who persecute you and mistreat you, never returning hate for hate but let the unsurpassed love of God triumph.
Jesus I pray that you will strengthen your Church, the body of Christ, and through the body by the grace and power of the Holy Spirit bring a powerful spiritual awakening and revival to this nation, the United States of America. I pray all to Your glory in Your holy name, Amen.
The bible says that the way the world is today is the way it was in the days of Noah. Things will probably get much worse as the end has not yet come upon the world as described in Matthew 24. In Matthew 24 Jesus Himself answers the question of when the end shall come and what it would be like. If you believe the Word of God is true and that Jesus is the Word of God (John 1:1); then, the world in Noah’s day was as technologically equal to or more so than the world today. They had about two thousand years to develop technology and lived to be about eight or nine hundred years old, just think what Einstein could have accomplished in nine hundred years. These are what I like to refer to as provoking thoughts.
Mark 16:15 Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Why these provoking thoughts now? Because so many things mentioned in Matthew 24 have already happened and are happening as I write and there are billions of people in this world who are unsaved and God clearly states in Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. We have a God given command to make sure everyone on earth has an opportunity to know about the saving grace and gospel of Jesus Christ so they can share in the glory God has waiting for them. God promises eternal life, a new perfect body, a new name, a new residence, a new city, a new world, a great reward, you will be a king and a priest and share His glory and His throne.
Jesus came to this earth and became human flesh to establish His Church and shed His blood on the cross for the remission of all sins while all mankind was still in their sins. Jesus died on that cross in your place so you could live forever and receive the promises mentioned above.
Unsaved people are having the gospel shared with them by radio, TV, in the church pulpit, missionaries and by personal witnessing. But the fact remains that there are not enough unsaved people being reached by these means. But when God made the internet available, for the first time in history every household in the world can be reached directly or indirectly as never before.
If you are one of those that is being reached by the internet for the first time and are hearing about salvation through Jesus Christ right now, then praise be to God because you have the blessing of hearing about the God who created the heavens and the earth. Who loves you so much, that His Son Jesus willingly died on the cross, as the supreme atonement sacrifice for all mankind, so you could be saved and live in heaven with Him forever.
I pray that God open your heart to His Truth, now, as you read this and receive Christ as your savior. Pray for this salvation and you will receive it. 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!
Tomorrow, Sunday August 20, 2017, is the great prayer day sat aside for the express purpose of praying for the unsaved of the world. We of the International Network of Online Evangelists, “INOE” are sponsoring the annual INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER FOR THE UNSAVED – 2017. All Christians are invited, even encouraged, to unite in prayer with us this Sunday for a minimum of five minutes to lift up our voices to God that He would open the hearts of people all over the world to receive Jesus for eternal salvation to the glory of God.
Ephesians 6:18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit.
Dear heavenly Father, please stir the hearts of your believers to participate in prayer and accept these prayers for the salvation of the lost souls of the world that you may be glorified. In Jesus name Amen!
John 5:21-24 For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom He will. “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.
Great God in heaven the world is full of people who are still under the death penalty and need the saving grace of Jesus who being totally sinless died on the cross in their place so that they may have life. Open their hearts to receive the glorious salvation of Jesus Christ. In Jesus name, Amen!
