Sixty-Six Years Ago

Volume 41

May 2018

Number 5

Beloved:

SIXTY SIX YEARS AGO this month (May, 1952) our Wonderful LORD called me to PREACH HIS WORD. WHY A SOVEREIGN GOD would call a seventeen year-old boy living in a small northwest Florida town to PREACH I will never know. BUT PRAISE HIM, HE DID!! HE has been SO FAITHFUL TO THIS PREACHER through the years. It was and is GOD’S WILL for me to PREACH and, as I’ve said many times, HE has taught me THE WILL OF GOD WILL NEVER LEAD YOU WHERE THE GRACE OF GOD WILL NOT SUSTAIN YOU!!! GLORY! GLORY! GLORY!

WELL SAID!

As a NATION we have reached a very low ebb SPIRITUALLY and therefore MORALLY, and the CHURCH has VERY LITTLE effect on the lives of the GREAT MAJORITY; THEY HARDLY KNOW WE EXIST. To COVER our weakness and ineffectiveness we have taken a number of ALTERNATIVE ROUTES. Many HIDE behind the façade of EXCITEMENT and ACTIVITY, seeking to keep congregations high on promises and pretence. In addition, we have been arranging even MORE ELABORATE crusades and conferences; they are VERY IMPRESSIVE, and the sheer weight of work and preparation takes our minds off THE REALITY of our lack of SPIRITUAL SUCCESS and THE ABSENCE OF THE PRESENCE OF GOD. For ALL our EXCESSIVE noise, EXTRAVAGANT claims and EFFICIENT administration, the world around us IS NOT aware that we exist. GOD IS NOT FELT AMONG HIS PEOPLE. And THE TRAGEDY is that, by and large, WE DON’T SEEM TO CARE!” 

Thank YOU for YOUR faithful support. As always…I love YOU dearly in our Wonderful Lord Jesus. 

Now a word from HIS WORD: “O GOD, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works. Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O GOD, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come”--Psalms 71: 17-18, KJV.
