In Just A Little While
This weekend we are hosting the drama "Last Chance" put on by Reality Ministries, the sequel to the world famous "Heaven's Gates & Hell's Flames", which we hosted last year. In just a little while 45 of our people will walk on the platform and throw out a life net to lost people...it's nerve racking and exciting all at the same time! Please keep our cast and ministry in your prayers. Last year we had over 300 decisions for Christ in the three nights, and even though we did not retain all those people, and some probably made an emotion decision, the gospel was preached, the opportunity was given, and some one was rescued from the bondage of sin and that is what it's all about.
The crux of the matter is that we have just a little while left on this earth, that in a little while the Lord will return. He may return this week, or a year from now, He may actually return in 1000 years...who knows...but to Him, it's just a little while, so we just have a little while to get ready and to help those around us ready.
I don't want to be scared out of hell, I want them to be made aware of the great love Christ has for them, which does require that they are made aware of the consequences of sin...but it also requires that people know that what God really wants is a relationship with Him...not just a confession...He already knows what we've done or not done...He just wants to walk in the garden with us in the cool of the day. In the book, The Chronicles of the Host, a fallen Adam says to Eve, "The thing that I miss the most is walking with the Most High in the evenings!" I think God must have missed that too...He sent Jesus so we can walk with Him again!
Sorry for being such a preacher lately...I post something stupid this week...I just wanted to remind us that in just a little while He's coming...He's coming into your situation, into your workplace...into your family...into your finances...into your church...and then He's coming for you!
It's just a thought...see you in a little while!

Praise The Lord! We had a packed house this evening and 18 commitments to the Lord. Good start! I'm thankful for God's goodness.

I like your "preacher stuff". I also love stupid things. So...when it's there, I'll be ready.

Neil - that's awesome! Isn't it exciting - what the Lord's doing!

Tonight we had a smaller crowd than last night but there were 27 people that made commitments to the Lord, more than last night with a packed house. Among the 27 was a Hindu woman whose son attends our school, you can't ask for more than that can you?

Well, we ended tonight with a great crowd and 37 people receiving Christ, bringing the total to 82! Thank the Lord for all He has done, and for you for your prayerful support!
