“O sing and rejoice . . . For, lo, I come . . . And many nations shall be joined to the Lord in that day, and shall be my people”! Zech. 2:10-11
HALLELUJAH! Where do I begin and end the glorious good news from your TBN!? From London to Madrid, to Rome to Jerusalem, to Manila to Hong Kong, to Sydney to Christ Church, and to the islands of the sea! Yes, we “sing and rejoice” as together we see many cities and whole nations being “joined to the Lord”!
Thanks to you, our TBN partners, and the glory of the Lord, the harvest is streaming in! If you have not been a part of this last day harvest let me show you how, especially all who have personal needs that may have prevented you from the joy of being, “a light to the [nations] that thou mayest be my salvation unto the ends of the earth.” Isa. 49:6
For several years we have been searching the word of God as to how Old and New Testament saints have touched God to have their needs supplied. So listen up — your whole world may be changed!
The journey has been thrilling and many of us have discovered the secret of God’s laws on giving and receiving. Many of you have seen the hand of God move into those impossible situations and are living in a whole new world of His miraculous supply! Praise the Lord!
Together we have learned that when the children of Israel were suffering crop failure and were on the verge of famine, the prophet Haggai showed them the problem: God’s Temple was in ruins! Everyone was building their own houses, planting their own crops, but neglecting God’s house. When they finally repented and promised to rebuild the Temple of God, prosperity returned and their needs were supplied.
How about Moses? He needed God to guide him and the children of Israel
from Egypt to the land of promise. The answer came: a pillar of cloud and fire to lead them, fresh manna every morning, water from the rock, the defeat of all their enemies, and safe journeys to the land of milk and honey. But hold on — there was a condition:
“And no one shall appear before me [the Lord] without a gift”! Ex. 34:20 TLB
In the prophet Malachi’s day the need was to get God’s curse lifted off the people. They were offering sick and lame animals — even stolen offerings — to the Lord! God’s anger became so intense that they cried out to Him for deliverance! The problem? They were robbing God of His tithes and offerings. They apparently ignored God’s promise that if they would honor the Lord with their giving, His blessings would be so great they would:
“Not [have] room enough to receive it.” Mal. 3:10 NKJV
The shocking record shows that they did not repent and give. The result? God did not speak to them or send a prophet for 400 years — until Jesus came!
Our journey goes on to King David, who left all his wealth to his son Solomon
to help build the great Temple of God. His final prayer is perhaps the sweetest one in the whole Bible:
“Everything we have has come from you [God], and we only give you what is yours already!” 1 Chron. 29:14 TLB
Next stop — King Solomon who was charged to build God’s Temple. As I have so often said, in his greatest need, he gave his greatest gift: 1,000 burnt offerings. The result? God spoke to him that same night and said:
“Ask me for anything, and I will give it to you!” 2 Chron. 1:7 TLB
Ah, dear partner, do you still have a need, an unanswered prayer? Do you need to reclaim your health? Are you grieving over a lost loved one? Have you lost something or someone dear to you? Are you broke — in need of a job? Do you hold on to a dream that just will not come to pass? Why not put God’s word to the test? He invited us to do just that:
“Prove me now . . . saith the LORD . . . [see] if I will not open you the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.” Mal. 3:10 KJV
Now is a perfect time to put this promise of God to the test! Give and
see those windows of heaven open up for you! Yes, God is trusting you and me to finish this last great harvest of souls throughout the whole earth. Will you go with Jan and me this last awesome mile? Praise God, we are nearing home, but multitudes still wait to hear the old, old story of Jesus and His love.
Take the enclosed card — tell God and us what your need is as you commit your best gift and pledge to Him. If you have received your answer, give Him your best thank you offering and see Him bless you even more! Then, join your TBN family April 28 through May 5 for a great season of Praise-a-Thon! This year our Praise-a-Thon season goes right on through May as we sing and rejoice for 40 glorious years of God’s miracles!
Jan and I cannot even begin to express 40 years of love for you that just keeps growing! Hallelujah — what will heaven be like?

The more I read and study the Word of God, the more I see that every good thing in our lives starts with GIVING. Even our salvation begins when we give our hearts to God! From Abraham, all the way down to Jesus: Giving was the KEY that put God’s law of provision into MOTION! The children of Israel gave their gold and silver to build God a tabernacle in the wilderness. In return, God gave them manna every day, water from a rock, a cloud and fire to lead them, and finally, their very own land in which to live!
Whatever your need is GIVE GOD SOMETHING and watch His law go into effect to supply that need! Pray and ask Him what you should give. If you have little or nothing, make a FAITH PLEDGE and prove the promises of God. Jan and I love you with all our hearts and will join you in giving our best this coming Praise-a-Thon.
