"BLESSED IS THE NATION WHOSE GOD IS THE LORD; AND THE PEOPLE WHOM HE HATH CHOSEN FOR HIS OWN INHERITANCE." PSA. 33:12


Praise the Lord! Do we really understand why America is a blessed nation above all other nations of the world? I'm sure most of us older ones know full well, but to our young people a brief word of history — especially since little of this is taught in our schools and colleges.

Our Pilgrim Fathers left many parts of Europe to be able to worship God after the dictates of their hearts. They were weary of crowned heads telling them how to pray and even withholding the Bible in many places. There is so much more to this than these few words, but show me another country that stamps on every coin and prints on every dollar bill, "IN GOD WE TRUST"! What other nation would adopt as its national battle hymn, lyrics like those of Julia W. Howe's in 1861?

"Mine eyes have seen the coming

of the glory of the Lord;

He is trampling out the vintage

where the grapes of wrath are stored;

He has loosed the fateful lightning

of His terrible swift sword;

His truth is marching on"!

There are six verses to this powerful hymn and I will give you my favorite in a moment, but I have to stop sometimes and ask myself and others, "What has happened to our beloved America?" Some statisticians call us the murder capital of the world! God help us and forgive us.

Why are there mass killings right inside our schools and colleges? Why do our children — many of them — have to pass through metal detectors to even get into their classrooms? Why do hundreds die of drug and alcohol abuse? Why are there over 2 million men and women locked up in prisons — many for life? Yes, what has happened to the lyric from America the Beautiful:

"Thine alabaster cities gleam

Undimmed by human tears"?

The reason is simple and clear. The apostle Paul warned us that —

"The time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears." 2 Tim. 4:3

Oh, America, America — are we there now? How many of our megachurches have become nothing more than social clubs? If you're in one — GET OUT! Find a church that preaches the whole gospel, including the baptism in the Holy Spirit.

When Jan and I assumed the leadership of the Holy Land Experience in Orlando, Florida, it was on the brink of being disbanded. Why? Because they would not allow Holy Spirit filled people to work there. No books with Holy Spirit emphasis were allowed in the bookstore. When God made it clear that Jan and I were to take control, my first prayer was: "Holy Spirit, You are welcome in this place!" Immediately, the atmosphere began to change! Two hundred visitors was a good day as the beautiful theme park sunk lower and lower. A few days ago 1,200 visitors came through the park and sweet Jan has turned it into a virtual Garden of Eden! The reason? God's precious Holy Spirit began to be poured out and we all saw it and felt it! And one of the best sellers now is dear Benny Hinn's book, "GOOD MORNING HOLY SPIRIT"! Praise the Lord!

Dear, dear partners: Pray for the prophet's "LATTER RAIN"! God has promised it — and we must pray it down upon all flesh (Joel 2:28)! We can have our good old America back — we can pray it back. TBN can be a big part of this last day harvest and renewal — IF you will catch the vision and help us keep 20,000 stations, cables, the Internet, and 70 satellite footprints covering virtually the whole wide world!

Remember our battle hymn theme? I actually have two favorite verses. Read them — no — sing them and rejoice for His coming draws near!

"He has sounded forth the trumpet

that shall never call retreat;

He is sifting out the hearts of men

before His judgment seat;

Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him!

Be jubilant my feet;

Our God is marching on"!

And, now, my other favorite verse which is very precious and tender:

"In the beauty of the lilies

Christ was born across the sea,

With a glory in His bosom

that transfigures you and me:

As he died to make men holy,

let us live to make men free;

While God is marching on"!

Jan and I are marching — are YOU? Thirty-five years of love to all —
