Welcome to Day 5 family!
Have you ever noticed how difficult things seem, not-so difficult when we are willing to do them? In God’s Kingdom, it’s not always the gifted, the educated or the greatest that God makes to “ride upon the high places” but rather, the ones who are simply, willing and obedient. Be encouraged dear ones.
“The Willing and The Obedient”
Miracles are happening. We went to Angeles Temple and ministered there and sang and it was wonderful. We had about 100 people that came to the Lord in that meeting and we give God the glory for it.
700 people and the medical equipment and things worth millions of dollars, God sent in. He sent in surgical parts for human bodies; it runs into the millions of dollars. God sent it in that we might send it out to meet the needs of the people. Some will go to Russia, the Philippines, Mexico, Nigeria, and Jamaica. We have a doctor we work with that has openings in these countries and she could get these things over to them.
We give God the glory, today. We aren’t just hearers of the word but we are doers of the word. We have to be both in order for the Lord to bless His people. We give God the glory today. He is very wonderful to do the things He is doing. I know that we all have a part in it and you are a part of it and we give God the glory for it. What we do, each one, we do with a labor of love. These hours, as some of you know, are not 9 to 5. They are all night and into the wee hours of the morning and the Lord sustains us.
I thank God that we are able to send the container to the Philippines. Our Filipino friends make it possible by their love gifts to the ministry to send the container. We surely thank them for their part of His ministry and His work. They have friends that want to help us send the container; the needs are desperate over there. A container is like a drop in the bucket according to the need of the people; but we are continuing to send it. I thank God for His word and the power of it. He is true and His word is faithful.
God needs of a lot of people. It’s not easy when you are shorthanded; but we manage to get through it by the help of the Lord. We want to thank God for our people’s faithfulness through these years; they have been like a bright light here, a living example. We praise God for it. We think of the scripture: The willing and obedient shall eat the good of the land.
We have to be willing and obedient so that He can show us His blessing and what He would have us to do. There is no greater calling in the world than to obey God and do what He has called us to do.
The Lord has spoken to us many times through the years and said, “I have a great army that wouldn’t come into ranks so I am using a small army.” He said that He will give me the strength of many to be in His army. The Lord makes up the gap. It is amazing how many people come and leave and yet the Lord fills in the gap. It is astonishing how He does it and we go right on with what God calls us to do. We can’t be hindered by the works of Satan and the works of the flesh. We accomplish what God has called us to do.
I believe that if we are willing and obedient there is nothing that God will withhold. It isn’t who we are, it’s who He is! What He will do through an obedient person to accomplish His will is amazing. I praise God for it! That willingness to let God have His way brings glory to Him.
I want to locate this scripture in a minute; but I want to take some time in speaking about some things. I feel it is important to give God the glory and give credit where credit is due. There are many here that we want to thank for their faithfulness and what God has done in their lives. We want to thank him for all of you.
Isaiah 1:9 “Except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.
10 “Hear the word of the Lord, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto to law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.
11 “To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the Lord: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.
12 When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?
13 “Bring no more of vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and the sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is inequity, even the solemn meeting.
14 “Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.
15 “And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.
16 “Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
17 “Learn to do well; seek judgement, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
18 “Come now, and let us to reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
19 “If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
20 “But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.”
That was a heavy time for the children of Israel because they were disobedient and wanted to do their own thing. The Lord wanted me to bring out the reason and give us something to live for. “If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land.” We are coming up to some very serious things that man has never dealt with in the history of man kind. We are coming into the end of the age and the enemy’s plan to destroy God’s people and his land. He purposes to destroy what God has given to man but God is rising up a generation that He has called as a remnant; that he has called by revelation; that he has called to his word. God won’t do anything except it is His word. We are coming into an evil time. We are come into a crisis in America that we have never had before. Drought and things that have come upon this nation because this nation has decided to leave God out of the schools; and put in and vote and stand for homosexuality and these things which don’t stand for God. God is going to turn against these things; but our youth are going to reap the harvest.
Our country is going to suffer because we as Christians won’t stand like God would have us to stand against evil. If we want good government we have to demand it. But we have to reap what we have sown. I believe the hour is coming that our government is going to fail. The enemy is going to come and it will be a one world government.
You know God has something that He has planned. He created us; but He isn’t going to give it into the hands of Satan or his people. We are going to become a remnant of people in the Lord, a Christian nation that is going to stand for God and God is going to stand for us. The needs of the people are going to be met in the supernatural because God in aware of the plot and plan.
I give God the glory in this place for the circumstances and what God has done here. We have totally and completely depended on him and we are obedient to him in a manner that brings glory to him, in meeting the needs of the people. We are mindful of what’s before us. The challenge is great; not just here in Antelope Valley or to Los Angeles but to the nations.
What God brought about even this week is a mighty miracle of God. I was putting some statistics together in my heart but I wanted to see it in black and white on a piece of paper. When I saw it I became aware of God’s provision here. It is astonishing what God has done. The airport said, “You write a report but leave God out of it. Don’t say you are a church.” I said, “How are you going to leave God out of it? He is the one doing it!” I looked at them.
Then when we tallied up what God was doing we realized it was God doing it. Nothing could be done except God did it. We give him the glory. I wrote in the report of our expenses. I didn’t put food at all: one million pounds of food the first 5 months of this year. We added our lights, gas, cars, and phone and when it was summed up it was amazing. Our income was $1,600 a month. Our expenses were $5,200; the donations were $5,400. It wasn’t in the red, it was in the black. I know it was a miracle! You can’t run a ministry of this size the way God runs it. They can’t do it. Think about it.
We are giving you this to give glory to God. To do what is done here daily only God can do it. There is no man that can do it, I can’t. How can you leave God out of it? They will see it. This is because we have been willing and obedient.
Ahead of us is a great future in God’s provision. The needs are greater than we can express. I feel that it is important to know that we started with nothing. God gave us this place. Everything is God given! It is a multitude of blessings. I start looking at things and know that it is God that sent them.
One man said to me, “I have been coming here a long time and I don’t know what you have been doing.” I said, “That’s alright you just watch and you will see.” Man isn’t used to adding things up God’s way; he is used to adding it up man’s way. We are doing it God’s way; the multiplication is different. You can’t put it in dollars and cents. It is mighty because God is doing it.
I feel, today, like Diane was sharing, this is the way we go to every country when we don’t have money. The people meet the needs so we can go and do what God wants us to do. The Lord does it. Even with all the food we receive, we don’t beg; because God gives it. I feel a deep gratitude in my heart with the willing and obedient. “Bring me all the tithes in the store house that there may be meat in thy house and prove me now,” saith the Lord of heaven, “and pour you out a blessing there shall not be room enough to contain and I will rebuke the powers for your sake and ye shall not destroy the fruits of the land neither shall you cast your fruit,” saith the Lord of hosts, “and all nations shall call you blessed, for ye shall be a delightsome land,” saith the Lord of hosts. Amen.
