"We are rejoicing
to be Poured Out
For The Nations!"
Dear Poured Out Followers of Messiah Jesus,
We hear so much about the bad news in the world and specifically the USA. And yes, there is plenty of bad news. But I have some good news to share in this letter!
My January USA Trip
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. Romans 1:16
I truly had a sense on this trip that I was going to get to share the love, including the gospel, of our Savior Jesus almost everywhere I went-and I was not disappointed! I left Ben Gurion Airport close to Tel Aviv and headed for North Carolina to visit family who lives there.
I sat next to an Israeli man on the plane who lives in New York City. As many of you know, often times it is very difficult to share the gospel with Jewish people. However, Gabriel let me share and discuss the things of our Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) with him for a surprisingly long time. Though our discussion did not immediately cut through his 40 or so years of traditional teaching that Jesus cannot be our Messiah-we know that the gospel is the power of God to save!
So, my trip was off to a good start having shared the gospel with a Jewish man first-and now off to the Gentiles! I began having difficulties like my luggage not arriving with me, phone issues, and other things. Immediately I began praising our Lord Jesus and looking for people with whom to share the gospel. I began sharing at the luggage office while reporting my luggage and then with a currency exchange lady at the airport. Both heard the gospel-one was already a believer and the other listened to the power of God to save-the gospel!
I was on a roll as I was talking with my phone service provider for about thirty minutes. Finally, I began sharing the gospel with the service agent who lives in New Mexico. I told him about my TV program and while we were waiting for phone downloading he looked me up on the internet. I shared the gospel with him and pointed him to a Calvary Chapel church in New Mexico. He let me pray for him that the gospel and our living Savior would become real to him-Hallelujah!
Then something really exciting happened. While in North Carolina I went to a coffee shop early every morning to work on my new book. One morning, as I left the coffee shop, a young lady who was volunteering outside for an organization that helps teens get off drugs asked if she could talk to me. I told her that I would listen to her if she would listen to me. After listening to her I shared the gospel and she began to weep. She then prayed to receive Jesus as Lord! Her name is Grace and this is just the beginning of the story.
I left North Carolina for Texas to visit at a small Calvary Chapel that I planted in the Houston area before moving to Israel. I spent two weekends teaching there and shared about Grace who prayed to receive Messiah Jesus in North Carolina and explained that she was moving that week to California. As the Lord had arranged things, a former secretary of a Calvary Chapel in California is a member of our congregation in Texas. She helped us introduce Grace to a church in California. As it turned out this church is a little far so she is attending one closer to her home as she begins her new life in Christ Jesus-double Hallelujah!
You see here is some good news for a change. Our Lord is not only pouring out His judgment-He is also pouring out His grace and mercy on precious souls like Grace-there is grace for Grace! Here is my question: Are you sharing the gospel with those the Lord has around you every day in your everyday life? Are you looking to share His grace with those all around you like our new sister Grace?
So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase. Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor. 1 Corinthians 3:7-8
Most often when someone receives Jesus as Lord is after they have heard the gospel many times or have been invited by a friend to church. Often times someone is praying for a loved one to hear the gospel from a laborer who loves our Lord Jesus and loves the lost. Will you be an answer to their prayer? Are there loved ones you are praying for? Could it be that as you share with those they are praying for that the Lord will send someone to your loved one?
Yes, it is true that there are troubled times ahead for America and the whole world, but never forget that where sin abounds, and it is abounding, that grace abounds all the more! Never forget that God has mercy in judgment and even uses the trouble of times like these to bring precious souls to repentance who would not come to Him otherwise.
Many hearts will be opened to the only hope there truly is in this world and His name is Jesus our Lord! Be ready with His gospel-good news-that He died on the cross for our sins, was buried, and on the third day He rose from the grave-Hallelujah! Also, be ready to tell people that if they repent of their sins and believe in the gospel that they will be forgiven, saved, and will go up in the Rapture to be with our Savior Jesus! Then, we will return with Him to rule and reign on the earth! This is a lot of good news and it is our good news to share. (Mark 1:14-15, I Corinthians 15:1-4, John 14:1-3)
