We know that God has never promised a life of ease and no challenges, yet I truly believe that the time is coming when He will make such an obvious difference between those who serve Him and those who don’t that everyone will see it.
In last week’s email to you, I spoke of the obvious difference between Isaac, whose crops prospered though surrounded by drought and famine (Genesis 26).
It will be as obvious a difference as when the devil comes to steal, kill, and destroy, yet our precious Lord Jesus brings abundant life and restoration (John 10:10).
Yes, right now there is a shaking taking place!
There is a purification moving over our globe, wave after wave. God is causing massive changes through every segment of society. Wrong is being exposed on every hand.
There is a shift going on in governments all around the world. A transformation is happening even among people who have never thought they needed God before as they are beginning to search diligently for Him.
People of all cultures, races, and economic levels are looking for someone with unshakable faith who will present the truth of the ages to them.
And in God’s sovereign timing, He wants to work mightily in you and me. Already, I have seen Him moving certain men and women into a greater dimension of power and purpose than ever before, and He wants to do this with you and this ministry.
During this time, we must shift back to the message of the cross. The Bible makes this very clear:
“But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world” (Galatians 6:14 KJV).
We must go forward, preaching about salvation to those who don’t yet know this life-giving truth:
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16 NKJV).
We must declare: “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8-9).
I love what the Billy Graham used to say: “Only the supernatural love of God through changed lives can solve the problems that we face in our world.”
If we don’t take that message of hope, salvation, and miracles to a hurting, lost, and desperate world, who will?
If not now, when?
