Raising a Bold Voice in a Troubled World
Souls are crying out for the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We must tell lost souls around the world that Jesus is the ONLY way.
We are standing at the threshold of the greatest move of God since our salvation.
I quickly learned: once the glory of His presence has touched your life, you increasingly feel compelled to share all that you have received with others.
Spiritual hunger simply draws you away from the things of this dim world and toward the light of His glory, which overshadows anything else. The resounding cry of your heart will echo the desire to share the priceless message of salvation and hope.
I grew up in Jaffa, Israel. Just about 67 kilometers (41 miles) from my hometown was the place where David cried out the words, “No one cares for my soul.” At the time, he was hiding from King Saul, seemingly trapped with nowhere to go and a death sentence hanging over his head.
Since I first read these sad words from the psalmist, I’ve thought so many times of hurting people who are faced with impossible situations, especially those who don’t know God as Savior and Lord.
In 1968, when my father moved our family 5,757 miles from the war-torn Middle East to Toronto, Canada, I had absolutely no idea about the changes that would happen to me.
My life changed drastically on February 14, 1972, at Georges Vanier Secondary School, not far from our home, when I responded to friends who cared enough to share the Gospel with me. That morning, I knelt to pray, saying, “Jesus, come into my heart.”
Of the many changes in my life, one became a sudden concern for souls that were as lost and lonely as I had been prior to my salvation. Almost immediately I felt a deep desire to share my newfound faith with my family and friends. And that urgency spread.
I would often stand at home looking out a window onto our street below, and I would pray for the people walking and driving past, though I could hardly understand why it was so important to care for their souls. No human had taught me this. It simply welled up from deep inside.
The more I discovered and experienced God’s presence in my life, the more this burden grew…and two years after accepting Christ, on December 7, 1974, I stood on the platform of a small church in Oshawa, Ontario, and God loosened my stammering tongue, starting me on a worldwide mission to preach the Gospel to millions, even billions.
Today’s Greatest Need
God is speaking to my heart today as never before, revealing the absolute necessity for you and me to care enough to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world.
This is a powerful, prophetic time of harvest, and, as we move through 2020, it is becoming more and more apparent that the harvest of souls is expanding around the world!
The time has never been more right for reaching the lost with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Oh, precious partner, I have been preaching the Gospel now for more than 45 years and have seen glorious days, but nothing can compare to the glory of the days we are living in right now. And I know the glory of God will increase more and more as we continue going around the world preaching the Good News of our precious Redeemer.
That is why I have renewed my commitment for 2020 to be the year of doing more, reaching more, and working harder for the Kingdom. And I am asking you more urgently than ever to support the work of the Gospel so we might continue reaching the lost and the hurting around the globe.
The situation on earth has never been more dangerous, and our time has never been more limited. Therefore, we must get the Gospel out with all speed and intensity:
- We must tell lost and frightened humanity that there is hope, and His name is Jesus Christ, the Son of God!
- We must tell lost and bound humanity that there is a way out, and His name is Jesus!
- We must tell everyone that there is only one door through which they can enter and find peace of mind, peace of soul, and eternal safety, and His name is Jesus!
Souls are crying out for the true Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Gospel of salvation, the Gospel of deliverance, the Gospel of peace.
We Have the Message the World Cries Out to Hear
The world is crying out for the peace that “passeth all understanding” (Philippians 4:7), and the only way they can find that peace is through the Prince of peace, the Son of the Almighty God, who said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).
This is the message the world wants to hear—this is the message they must hear. And this is the message we must preach! We must tell lost souls around the world that Jesus is the ONLY way, the ONLY truth, and the ONLY life!
But will we care enough for their souls to do more than we’ve ever done before?
Oh, beloved, the world is ready to hear the Gospel. They are looking for its truth. In fact, they are desperate for it.
We cannot delay. The dangers in this world have never been so great, and our time has never been so short. We must preach the Gospel now with fervency, speed, and intensity. We must accelerate all of our efforts.
The door is open now as we move quickly through 2020, but tomorrow may be too late!
This is why, over the next few months, I will be traveling extensively and using the latest technologies to do more than ever!
I have made a commitment to the Lord that I will preach the Gospel, that I will go to the nations of the world, that I will tell them that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life, and that no man can find the Father except through Him.
I have made this commitment, and I will never break it, never turn back from it! I will preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ as long as God gives me breath.
And I pray that He will continue to speak to your heart to do all you can to take the Gospel to the world.
Remember, the Bible asks:
How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” (Romans 10:14-15)
We are told: “This gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14).
This is happening in front of our very eyes. We must be bold witnesses, for we know that Jesus Christ is the only hope for the world!
I’ve made my commitment. How about you? I’ve made my choice. How about you? Will you join me in caring for the lost who have no hope for the future?
You are a crucial part of what our ministry does with the Great Commission as we seek to take the Light of the world to the nations.
I am asking you today to plant your most generous seed so we can continue to do all God has called us to do as co-laborers. Because of your seed-gifts, the sick will be healed! Because of your faithfulness, lives will be changed! Because of your commitment, countless souls will be saved for all eternity!
We are told to:
“Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:33).
We must get the good news of His life-saving, miracle-working power to the nations. The need to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ is now greater than ever before!
I am determined to go, but I can’t go without you!
Eternity hangs in the balance for billions of people around the world, and though the world’s financial and political system may continue to crumble, your position as a believer is one of strength and power as you give to take the Good News to a dark world.
The Greatest Calling
Precious friend, we have such a powerful, compelling calling upon our lives. Once the glory of His presence has touched your life, you will never be the same. And no longer can we ignore the pleas of the lost and needy who cry out, “No one cares for my soul.”
Let me ask you, as never before, to be faithful in your giving. Plant your most generous seed in expectation that God will do something unprecedented and wonderful in your own life as He uses your gift to touch souls around the globe!
Jesus Himself promised:
“Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you” (Luke 6:38).
Will you sow your precious financial seed today so multitudes can hear the Gospel message and know that you care about where they will spend eternity?
Together, we are standing at the threshold of the greatest move of God since our salvation. The Middle East is beginning to open wide to the preaching of the Gospel. China and other nations, once closed, are now opening their doors. And I know you will be there again with me, especially as we use powerful advanced technologies through the Internet and social media to share with people, many who have never heard the Gospel before.
Together, we will accomplish God’s agenda for this generation. Together, we will do our part, give our best, and surrender our all to our wonderful Jesus, the One who is worthy of our lives, our gifts, our talents, our all.
Yet our time is running out!
Help me today to respond to those all over the world who are crying out, “No one cares for my soul!”
As you give your precious seed this month, remember also our Father’s glorious promise to you:
He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. (2 Corinthians 9:10)
I eagerly await hearing from you!
Your co-laborer for the precious cause of Christ,
