"FOR THUS SAITH THE LORD, THE GOD OF ISRAEL, CONCERNING THE HOUSES OF THIS CITY…. BEHOLD, I WILL BRING IT HEALTH AND A CURE…. AND WILL REVEAL UNTO THEM THE ABUNDANCE OF PEACE AND TRUTH”! JER. 33:4,6
PRAISE THE LORD! We now have a complete New York City television station! Glory be to God MOST HIGH! Let me explain—
Most of you know that we have had a New York station, Channel 54, for 28 years! While we were considered as a part of the New York City market, our city of license was Poughkeepsie, about fifty miles north of the Big Apple. Our signal just brushed the northernmost part of the city, so we were not able to reach the cable TV systems. Oh, the agony of being so closeand yet so far!
The agony was the fact that New York City and all its suburbs are virtually ALL wired for cable. We tried again and again to make a deal with the two major cable systems, i.e.,Time Warner and Cablevision, but to no avail. Even the FCC agreed that we were just too far to command carriage under the “must carry” law. Finally, I threw up my hands and cried out to God. I said, “Dear Father, I have done all I and our attorneys can do! This is now your problem — we need a miracle!”
Dear Partners, I am reasonably certain that we all have hit that IMPOSSIBLE MOUNTAIN at one or more times in our lives. As it turned out, another MOUNTAIN was exactly what we needed!
“O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!”Rom. 11:33
Our old analog channel 54 was on Illinois Mountain — too far from the Big City. Enter DIGITAL TV, the new 21st century technology! For reasons it would take far too long to describe, the FCC allowed us to move 20 miles closer to New York City with a new better channel — 27, and more power! And, our new MOUNTAIN? A very historical one named “BEACON MOUNTAIN.” Get your American history book open and you will see that from this mountain, General George Washington’s lookout soldiers could see if “THE BRITISH WERE COMING” and could be prepared to RECEIVE THEM! Praise God, we cannow warn New York of Satan’s tactics and traps from this same mountain!
So, dear Partners, let us praise the Lord and thank the TIME WARNER and CABLEVISION systems that virtually all of New York’s 15 million plus souls will be able to receive YOUR TBN 24/7! Again, to God be the glory!
Let us also rejoice that satellite dishes continue to be installed in the jails and prisons of America. We are also sending dishes and receivers to 100 new cities and villages of Egypt. Sri Lanka is virtually covered and now India is calling for more dishes! Our Asia satellite which covers China and India is now receiving Chinese and Indian subtitles on some of our programs — some day it will be all!
Ah, dear Partners, it would take a thousand or more pages just to list all the stations, cable stations and direct-to-home satellite receivers — can you believe over 18,000 affiliated stations fed by 70 great satellite footprints! And, now, the vast Internet is exploding into multiplied millions of homes internationally! I am told that the day may come when we will be watching our TV coming free through the Internet — Wow! Where doesthe technology explosion end — better yet, where does it take us to?
God’s word warned us that one of the great signs of His return was —
“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Dan. 12:4
Yes, praise God, the final lap is upon us! The only problem is: we need more workers in the harvest field! Jesus told us clearly —
“I say unto you, Lift up your eyes and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.” Jn. 4:35
Jesus also gave us a glorious promise — but before I tell you, let me ask: Do you need a job? Do you need more income? Would some extra money be welcome in your life, in your home?
Dear Partners, here it is in Jesus’ own words —
“And he that reapeth RECEIVETH WAGES, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.” Jn. 4:36.
There are many ways to reap the precious souls of mankind. One way is to help your TBN as we plant satellite dishes in mansions as well as mud huts! Jan and I cannot do it alone — we need YOU to love and support YOUR TBN now more than ever. Put God’s word to the test: sow a gift into the dying souls of humanity through your TBN — God’s word promises you WAGES for your sowing! Do it today. Jan and I will join you especially since HIS WAGES are best!
We love you now 36 years long and strong! We’ll be looking for your letter and prayer requests. We will send them on to the Holy Land if you request it.
