"He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?" Romans 8:32
So, what do you need? Or even better said, "What do you want?" What if the Lord appeared to you and said, "ASK ME FOR ANYTHING, AND I WILL GIVE IT TO YOU"? He did just that to King Solomon — twice as a matter of fact!
Dear, dear partners: If we can ever get it through our doubting heads that God is a GIVING GOD, and that He delights in supplying not just our needs, but also virtually anything we want, it can and will be a new day for us! Let me prove it to you —
"Delight yourself in the LORD, and He shall give you [even] the desires of your heart"! Psalm 37:4
The apostle Paul brings this glorious truth into our dispensation with an even stronger word of promise: Since God has given us the greatest gift in all of heaven, HIS VERY OWN SON, God is saying in an awesome way — "Anything else you need or want from me is asmall thing indeed!"
So, what "THINGS" or needs do you desire?
Many today have desperate needs! The whole world is in recession and has been, now, for about two years. Many have lost their jobs, even their homes! Many are at their wit’s end with benefits exhausted and savings virtually gone! "Forget "WANTS" for now; I have desperate needs," say many!
Well, first of all, if we are children of God we have a divine safety net!
"I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread." Psa. 37:25
Join your worldwide TBN family for REVIVAL Praise-a-Thon®: February 28 - March 5.
We'll be praying your YOUR needs!
Dear partner, take hold of the promises of God and trust in Him! He has not and will not fail you! Praise the Lord! But, what about our theme Scripture — the Word says clearly that, HE WILL "FREELY GIVE US ALL THINGS"!
Dear partner, get your spiritual key ring out — I have the KEY to your need, your answer! God knew and designed this KEY. Yes, even our God had a need, so what did He do? Here it is: "He delivered him up for us all…"! Oh, please get this — it is the answer to everything you need:
GOD GAVE HIS BEST GIFT!
Oh, I know, I have heard it with you from nearly every plea for money—"plant your seed"! I have nearly gotten sick from all the "beg-a-thons," every cry that "we are going under if we do not get your check in the mail tonight!"
Yes, the "seed-faith" teaching is true. You, like God, have to plant a seed if you expect a harvest. But, here is the MASTER KEY! Let’s look again at God’s seed — simply put:
IT WAS HIS BEST SEED!
So, what did God receive as His harvest? You know the answer: Millions of sons and daughters! Hallelujah! And you are one of them — so am I! Praise the Lord!
When Jan and I were led to step out in faith to begin blessed TBN — what did we do? Yes, we prayed. Oh, how we prayed! But, we did what God did: we gave our best! We gave our $20,000 life savings, we signed a guarantee pledging our house, our car and our furniture — in short, we pledged or gave our all to see this miracle of TBN come to birth! So, what have we seen as a result? Praise God — over 20,000 TV stations, cable stations, 71 satellite footprints covering the WHOLE WIDE WORLD! Praise the Lord most high! And, you know what? YOU are a part of our miracle — you are a part of our harvest. And, as I have often said, when we — you and Jan and I — get to heaven we will meet the rest of our harvest! Oh, glory, I’m getting happy now! Yes, millions will rise up to call us blessed because we all gave our very best to see this glorious harvest come in!
So, if you have not received "ALL THINGS," as our theme Scripture declares, let me ask you two things — as Jesus did —
HAVE YOU GIVEN HIM YOUR BEST SEED?
And, secondly: Are you giving into good ground that is winning souls for the Kingdom? I’ve often taught on St. John, chapter 15 — Jesus is the Vine and we are the branches. So, the greatest question of all is:
ARE YOU BEARING FRUIT?!
Dear partner — here is the final KEY to your need, your desire:
"Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit…[so] that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you." Jn. 15:16
I challenge you in faith that even in this time of need — that you will dare to plant your very best seed into the good ground of TBN! I promise you that you will become an instant FRUIT BEARER as salvation calls are pouring in to YOUR TBN 24/7! Yes, the souls of lost men and women, boys and girls are the fruit that God desires. Make your pledge today. I know it can be fearful at times — it was for Jan and me, but we are a witness: Give your best to God and based on the very Word of God, you can claim our Scripture:
"Shall he not with him [Jesus] also freely give us all things?"
Jan and I will join you:
FEBRUARY 28 — MARCH 5
as we rejoice for even more fruit for the Kingdom!
We love you and it will be 37 years long and even stronger as we see the final line in view!
Jan and her Praise-a-Thon® team - including Judy Jacobs (pictured foreground), will lead us in a glorious time of praise and worship!
