Share Your Faith

"If you offer forgiveness without repentance and the glories of heaven without warning of the horrors of hell, you are not presenting the true Gospel." (Greg Laurie) Thanks be to God that our Great God made a way for us to be saved through His Son Jesus Christ shedding His Blood on the Cross.... This is such good news... Man, I'm so excited... I'm Not going to Hell.... I've got to go tell someone Today... Lets develop that mentality in the church again.... Share what God has blessed you with.....

There is no soul the Savior can't reach, no sin that can't be forgiven...No power of darkness the Blood can't break, No sickness the Blood can't heal, No bondage the Blood can't Loose you from..... The Blood Of Jesus needs to be proclaimed from every church in the land.. God bless you.. Praise Jesus....

What if everybody that was part of a local church would be willing to share their testimony and their faith story (share the gospel) with just three people in 90 days? Can you imagine the impact that would have? "

A million years from now and throughout all of Eternity, it's going to matter how you lived and how you died. Heed the call of Jesus today and draw near to Him separating yourself from the weak and beggarly elements of this present world.

Keep on the firing line and win souls for Jesus.. He is coming very soon.. it's in the air isn't it? The Glory is about to sweep over the planet bringing in the final harvest. Look up always; your Redemption draws near!!

Go out and with tact and much love, share the Gospel with someone Today..... You can do it!!

Here are 14 soul winning quotes:
God forms man, sin deforms him, the school informs him but only Christ transforms him, therefore preach Christ to ALL Men – C. H. Spurgeon
If a believer in Christ did not preach in his first two years of his
conversion, he may not likely open his mouth again to preach – Watchman Nee
The Church exists for nothing else but to draw men into Christ, to make them little Christ. If they are not doing that, all the cathedrals, clergy, missions, sermons, even the Bible itself, are simply a waste of time. God became Man for no other purpose. – C. S. Lewis
You may not be allowed to stand on the pulpit in your church to preach, but every junction in your area is a pulpit, stand there and preach – Reinhard Bonnke
It is the duty of every Christian to be Christ to his neighbor – Martin Luther
The first work of whole church is to give the gospel to the whole world – Oswald J. Smith
Two-thirds of God’s name is GO! –Rodney Howard-Brown
Some wish to live within the sound of a chapel bell; I wish to run a rescue mission within a yard of hell. – C. T. Studd
The gospel is only good news if it gets there in time – Carl F. H. Henry
You have one business on Earth – to save souls. – John Wesley
The Christian is not obedient unless he is doing all in his power to send the Gospel to the heathen world. – A. B. Simpson
God stands in no need to our strength or wisdom, but of our ignorance, of our weakness; let us but give these to Him, and He can make use of us in winning souls. – D. L. Moody
We do not stand in the world bearing witness to Christ, but we stand in Christ bearing witness to the world. – A. J. Gordon
Make it an object of constant study, and of daily reflection and prayer, to learn how to deal with sinners so as to promote their conversion. – Charles G. Finney

Restocking Giveaway Bibles



These are pictures from a large youth event where we distributed Bibles and served as counselors.. Our Bible supply has been depleted so for the Months of August and September we are raising funds for Bibles for Youth and Bibles for Prisoners..

For everyone who can give a gift of $50 or more towards replenishing these Bible outreaches, I want to send you 3 of my newest radio messages on CD.. 1- The Plan Of God For The Life Of The Christian.... 2- Courage In The Chaos..... and 3- Motivation Matters......

You may give by using the Give To Our Ministry link on the right hand side in the links column. Please be sure to give your correct mailing address when you do..

Your help is urgently needed and greatly appreciated to reach into the lives of Young People and prisoners in the United States.

I want to leave you with the following nuggets........

One Thing I have learned in life is that it doesn't matter in the least who doesn't believe in you so much as the empowerment of the realization that JESUS DOES...... Serve Him.... Go for it..... All or nothing.......

Regrettably, Christianity is full of "Talking Heads"...... Listen, there is a huge difference between "Talking" commitment and "Being" committed..... You are going Nowhere fast if your Actions do not line up with your words.... Stop being lazy, uncommitted, grumbling, faultfinding, rebellious, do nothings...... and Get the Fire of the Holy Ghost propelling your life..........

It is not compromise to wrap your arms around an erring brother or sister and take them back to the altar of Christ (the Cross). Not forcing them into a second class Christianship; but simply helping them through to the forgiveness of Jesus and restoring them to ministry in the body.

Don't Let other peoples opinions and judgment calls about you bother you.......... If you do, you will never accomplish your purpose (s) in Christ....... Just open your heart before the Lord and obey Him... Allow the Holy Spirit to make you pleasing in His sight; Trust God.... and....... Go Forward.

Americas problem runs deeper than party politics...... Our deepest issue is a soul issue..... We have forgotten God days without number, turning to Him only to bail us out after our crisis moments and then going on our merry way; fiddling while Rome burns... Like drowsy beggars staring at the hands of a broken clock; God will bring payday--- someday......................

Believers, we are supposed to base every thing we believe on the Word of God...... Jesus said that a house divided can NOT stand... it is very sad that we do not have a mandate.... whoever wins will not carry a mandate into the new term..... We are sadly a deeply divided people and the ONLY thing that can reunite us is a return to the Cross of Christ and a moving of the Holy Spirit that will teach us once again biblical priorities of righteousness......

Why have I been so fortunate to have heard the Gospel so many times and millions have never heard once....... what a tremendous responsibility.. Jesus said to "Go" into all the world.

The Modern church that holds to its outlandish messages of Selfishness and greed can barely tolerate Christ's command to love their neighbor as themselves...... The Church better wake up and cling to the eternal values of Scripture and put aside the 'self' oriented values of a world that is truly Christ-less...... Without compassion,Mercy,and genuine concern for humanity, I fear that portions of the church are also "Christ-less"........

We have got to come to the realization in these last days: There is nothing wrong with being humbled and Broken. It is the most advantageous position for the Child of God...

God bless you all my friends... See You a little farther up the road....

Update To Vision Statement

Since 1981, Acts 26:18 Ministries and Len Paxton have been standing for the Preaching of the unchanged, Undiluted Gospel Of Jesus Christ.
May we always lift up Jesus Christ and exalt Him in our preaching. Let us reject unbiblical and superficial drivel and preach Christ centered; Christ honoring sermons from the pulpit.. The old saying says, “You can’t advertise a feast when there is no food on the table.”.. So many today are hungry for the reality of a living Jesus… They may not know it yet… Lets always give them life; always give them Christ…

We exist as a ministry to Preach the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and to win souls for His Kingdom. Also to reach out to as many Pastors and churches as possible, to be a friend to them; an encouragement; speaking into their lives.
As we see many saved in our meetings, its our prayer that we will be able to plug as many of them as possible in to good, strong, Bible believing churches. Another directive we have from the Lord is, through our teaching ministry, to assist the Local church in the Discipleship of believers.

A strong direction that is being taken also is the connection between the Gospel and the History of our great Nation. With that in our hearts we are traveling to many old and historic churches once on fire for God now struggling and reaching out to Christians and Pastors there to facilitate prayer, preaching, and revival. The strength of Americas churches is tied directly to the strength of the Nation. When the churches were the center of our community life, America was a stronger moral nation. We believe that God wants to work this way again in America.

Of course, we continue our ministry efforts with the Camp ministry and the Prison outreach; Feeding outreach and also music Evangelism. Bible Distribution is at an all time high in Acts 26:18 Ministries.  All outreaches which have been approved by the board will continue to function normally on a day to day basis.

In future updates we will give reports on each of these ministry arms of Acts 26:18 Ministries.

For many years our ministry has been called Acts 26:18 Ministries.... "To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me." (Acts 26:18).... Our Passion, now more than ever is to preach the Blood, The Cross, and win souls to Jesus... To exalt and Lift His Name in our Generation.... To see precious souls go from Darkness To Light..... I am so thankful for all who are taking this journey with us!! We are called to declare the fact that men are sinners and God loves them and has provided a way for all to be saved, at least all who come God’s way. And that way is Jesus Christ and Him crucified. To preach anything else is to violate the sacred trust of the call....
So, preacher friend of mine, let us join together in calling America and the World back to the Cross of Christ.
Let us plead with men and women, boys and girls, to repent of their sins and run into the open arms of the savior today.

Historical/Gospel Tour Info Coming Soon

One of my very favorite things to do is to give Historical / Gospel Tours at various sites across the Country..  We will continue to dedicate significant time to this going forward..  Plus we have added stops at Historical churches where prayer for revival and short messages will be on my itinerary..

I will be talking much more about these things in days to come.. We firmly believe that America can have another great Awakening as the Body Of Christ calls upon God and turns from their sin...

Christianity is the religion that shaped America and made her what she is today. In fact, historically speaking, it can be irrefutably demonstrated that Biblical Christianity in America produced many of the cherished traditions still enjoyed today.. God is connecting our ministry to Pastors across this country as we pray for America and hold revival meetings...
Its fun to work with local Living History experts to make programs that can further the Revival Cause.. The last two times out we did shows at Natural Bridge and Patrick Henry's Red Hill..
In coming posts and videos I actually plan to share much more about this arm of the ministry..

So Today, I leave you all with this:  If we are going to be able to live victorious, overcoming, courageous lives in these days of uncertainty, chaos, and fear..... we will need to be calm in our hearts, loving and compassionate toward others, constructive and Christ centered in our relationships, challenged to grow in Him consistently,and connected to the Church!!! We are created to live in community not isolation.. The New Testament has many "One Another" and "Each Other" tasks for us.. ( encourage one another, love one another, bear with one another, to name three.) Today, go with God rejoicing!!! Many blessings!!  God Bless You all......  (Len)

Happy 4th Of July


Happy 4th Of July weekend everyone!! As we celebrate the Freedoms God has blessed us with in this great Nation lets also remember the Freedom we have in Christ because of the Cross.. We are thankful we can Trust God completely with every moment of our lives on earth... As we remember Who God is and How very faithful He has always been to us even in the midst of our own weakness and times we fall short, We Are so encouraged to continue to depend on Him during new challenges; turning every day into an Adventure of Faith... Angie and I love you all....  
 Anyone who knows the Holy Spirit knows that all is not well in America... Satan is doing all he can to lull the church asleep and get her preoccupied with everything from worldly riches to internal power struggles and outright malicious sin.. While many churches are struggling to keep the doors open there are still alot of great churches that are making a difference in our cultures steady religious decline.. On a well known level, TRBC, TSC, LCN, and many others fight in the trenches every single day to snatch souls from the fire..PLUS countless Great churches in local communities that we don't know their names in many cases but they have stayed true... America has prayed but has yet to repent. There is hope and that hope is found at the Cross of Jesus Christ... Its the Only Hope!! It must be proclaimed and preached from behind the pulpits of the Land... When we pray and sincerely ask God to do a work in us That work will spill over into the culture.. Angie and I want to thank each of you who stand with us in prayer and support as we try to do our small part wherever God leads us.. I wish to assure that by Gods help and Grace, I will Never change my message and also, as He strengthens me, I will pay whatever cost may come but I will keep preaching THIS message... Those who have been my true friends, some old; some new, I can't tell you how much I thank you!! My Dear friends and soul brothers and sisters, Happy Independence Day... Lets go out every day and proclaim FREEDOM to the Captives through the BLOOD of JESUS!!! Have a great day tomorrow..... Peace.. DO US A FAVOR... IF YOUR CHURCH IS STAYING TRUE TO THE MESSAGE AND ACTIVELY WINS SOULS, PLEASE WRITE THE CHURCH NAME IN THE COMMENT SECTION SO WE CAN PRAY FOR THAT CHURCH... (the warfare is intense and will increase)

Update On Surgery

Here is what Angie posted Yesterday..."Len is doing well today after oral surgery yesterday... He has developed a virus in his throat that doesn't respond to antibiotics so please pray for healing as we leave for Virginia and Ohio, then back to Virginia to close out June... The Live radio program will be Thursday night June 15 at 7 pm e s t .."
Dropping by to say hi and let you know that I am gradually feeling a bit better again.. So I thank all of you who have been praying for me.. Really so looking forward to the program tomorrow night at 7... Here is a nugget God gave me for a message I preached about a year or so ago: In Many circles these days, there is precious little seeking of the will of God. One reason is because we automatically presume we know it…. But we must realize that in the economy of God Bigger is not always better; Numbers are not the gauge by which true spiritual success is measured. In Christ, sometimes the road less traveled is still the finest path. Do not presume that God is looking at your life through your eyes but rather pray to see it through HIS!!! We must return to seeking HIS will carefully if we ever hope to see revival……. Its my hope to put more focus than ever on the New Covenant in the days to come.. Lift Jesus Higher folks... God bless your day..

Nuggets From TSC Pastors Conference At Summit

It was Great Meeting Pastor Carter Conlon.... He is such a humble man of God and also, in my opinion, a true prophetic voice in our times.. in this sad world we need those who can shine the light of Jesus and show His love to all people!! I am so honored to be here and to have this time of fellowship.... Jesus said that if we would lift Him up then HE would draw all men unto HIM!! Let's Live our lives in such a way that people will be attracted to our blessed savior!!!

Here are some nuggets of Rich Truth from the Conference:

So if someone ask me how are you doing today? I can say with all my heart I am doing great! God is well pleased with Christ Jesus!! Well, They say, did you read enough? Did you give enough? Did you pray enough? I answer; I do all of those things because the Holy Spirit lives within me! But none of that affects my standing with God because I'm not trying to keep a covenant!! Christ kept the covenant that he had with God and I rest in Him!!! Folks we are in Christ if we believe and we are not to be brought back under even our own good ideas of what that life should be but only to surrender to the Holy Spirit living the righteousness of Christ through us! 

Waiting on the promises is just as important as receiving the promises.. Psalm 105:19... God does His deepest work in us between Amen and There It Is!! The way we wait often determines the duration of the wait! Faith expands in times of waiting upon the Lord... hold on; He is on the Way! While we wait the Word of the Lord refines and purifies us...Waiting time is not wasted time!!  


Pastor Conlon closed out the conference this morning with an awesome exhortation to pray.. "we must have the humility to acknowledge that the nation is perishing on our watch! And so we humble ourselves and pray.. When prayer is an ultimate expression of true dependence on God and faith in God, then revival can come.. I want to help Gods ministers lose their self focus when it comes to ministry and really begin to once again accomplish the work of God! "(Carter Conlon) This was a fabulous time of gathering, exhortation , and fellowship! Angie and I are already making plans to attend again next year. The food at the conference was great too!!😎 .. Speaking for myself, I can say that I will definitely be preaching several things in a majorly different way going forward as God begins to clear the way for a move of his Holy Spirit that only He can accomplish. We must preach the Jesus of the cross and the new covenant without adding human instrumentation , achievement, or accomplishment.. The Holy Spirit graphically laid it out and portrayed that during this conference.. can't wait to begin developing a couple messages that God gave me here. Also looking forward to sharing on the radio program.






It was great meeting Gary Wilkerson as well.. He along with the others brought  truths to bear that are revolutionary to the Church...

He that has an ear, let them hear what the Spirit saith to the churches..........


God bless you friends.... I will be sharing so much about the direction God is taking the messages here in our ministry... God is good... see you all soon......

E. M. Bounds On False And Fleshly Ministry

Can ambition, that lusts after praise and place, preach the gospel of Him who made himself of no reputation and took on Him the form of a servant? Can the proud, the vain, the egotistical preach the gospel of him who was meek and lowly? Can the bad-tempered, passionate, selfish, hard, worldly man preach the system which teems with long-suffering, self-denial, tenderness, which imperatively demands separation from enmity and crucifixion to the world? Can the hireling official, heartless, perfunctory, preach the gospel which demands the shepherd to give his life for the sheep? Can the covetous man, who counts salary and money, preach the gospel till he has gleaned his heart and can say in the spirit of Christ and Paul in the words of Wesley: "I count it dung and dross; I trample it under my feet; I (yet not I, but the grace of God in me) esteem it just as the mire of the streets, I desire it not, I seek it not?" God's revelation does not need the light of human genius, the polish and strength of human culture, the brilliancy of human thought, the force of human brains to adorn or enforce it; but it does demand the simplicity, the docility, humility, and faith of a child's heart.

Slander

This is another classic from 1994. This was our second recording ever released. Though I have been preaching since 1981 there are very few if any of the messages recorded in the 80's...So we started recording everything in 1993 until now... This message is urgently needed now because of social media. Social media slander has turned otherwise good Christians into absolute Backsliders. There is forgiveness if you will repent and stop judging others on Social media... We pray this message will be a challenge to your spiritual lives... God bless....

Nuggets From May FB Posts

We were so blessed in May to take over a 1000 piece product delivery to the Hope Aglow Prison Ministry in Lynchburg Virginia...  This included Bibles, Books, and Cassettes... Already we have 5 more boxes of product ready to go on load 2 coming soon..
In a few days I will be updating you guys on New partnerships we have formed this year.. We look for stability, accountability, and productivity in ministries we plan to sow alot into... God has given us some very good ones and as I said in a few days I will Tell you more about it........
Here are some nuggets from My FB.......

Courage is a road that travels the mountain tops( of encouragement) and the valleys (of discouragement) of Life... Sometimes we feel very bold and at other times it seems our courage slips out the backdoor and leaves us feeling very insecure and vulnerable... There are 2 ways to keep courage close at hand: one is to meditate on the promises of God found in His Holy Unchanging Word and the other is to talk to a trusted friend (Prayer To God) about everything we face in Life...

The law says " if you go to work you'll be blessed".... Grace says, "you are blessed , Go to work" ( from one of my newest messages). And another, "True peace is more than a calm exterior; Peace is a quiet heart".....

God gives His word as His standard for our living and for our guidance as well!! He also gives His word for our comfort because He loves us.. whenever we look around and wonder what the future holds and we have questions about the direction of our lives, our nation, and our world; sometimes we have concerns about our finances, our jobs and our families. It's then that we are reminded on every page of the Holy Word of God that kings, nations, and economies do not hold the fate of our lives; only God does, and He is a God of comfort and love. He has a future and a hope for us!! There is no human weapon of man that can blow the promises off the pages of the Bible!!!

Puritan Thomas Watson said, "There are no sins God's people are more subject to than unbelief and impatience; they are ready, either to faint through unbelief , or to fret through impatience..". We don't learn character when life is cruising along going great- only when it demands us to reach within and discover new patience from the Lord, new faith in God, and new heavenly resources to overcome the obstacles... God grant us patient hearts of endurance each day!!!

Many things in life are only temporary. A gallon of milk, a loaf of bread, a carton of eggs all have expiration dates. The storms you are in have an expiration date, and they too will soon expire. So hold on, don't give up now. Put on a smile and press on. Your day is almost here. The problems you face are about to expire.... In order for Peace to develop and grow in us, there has to be a storm.. In order to have courage grounded in God, there have to be opportunities to flee and hide.... I will be talking about these things in detail in my upcoming series , "Courage In This Chaos"..... also talking about it on the show tomorrow night... 

If we are going to be able to live victorious, overcoming, courageous lives in these days of uncertainty, chaos, and fear..... we will need to be calm in our hearts, loving and compassionate toward others, constructive and Christ centered in our relationships, challenged to grow in Him consistently,and connected to the Church!!! We are created to live in community not isolation.. The New Testament has many "One Another" and "Each Other" tasks for us.. ( encourage one another, love one another, bear with one another, to name three.) Today, go with God rejoicing!!! Many blessings!!

Carrollton Singing their new song!! "Open Wide"

This is our answer to those who try to judge us based on what we post on social media.... The pictures we post of events, what we preach.... or anything else for that matter..... We are praying for The Lord to Raise up Pastors with a shepards heart to help believers watch their mouth and teach them to not live on their emotions..... If you have been beat up by other believers including immature leaders, then this is dedicated to you..... Angie and I encourage all our social media followers to not support posts that pick at others, even in veiled ways... That in itself is deceptive and causes a ministry leader to be sub standard.. Just don't hit like on those posts.. Don't support ministries with leaders who are unstable and judge peoples motives... Preaching the Word strong and true is something We Should do.... but never follow those who twist the word and aim that twisted version at others.... We are so very serious about this... Take a stand on truth YES..... But dont get personal or critical about how many pictures someone posts on their page or judge what they are doing for the Lord as if they were not really... That is DEMONIC.... Mind your own business and start to grow up in the Lord... Dont stay backslidden... Jesus wants to restore you...... More on this coming in messages soon........

Last Weekend And Upcoming Radio

What a powerful weekend we had in Byron Center and Battle Creek MI.......
Its a precious thing to worship with thousands as the true Gospel is proclaimed musically and through preaching.... We have done so many of these events over the years but I can honestly say this is one that really stands head and shoulders above the average....

I am so excited about the grace of God. Jesus said that if we gain the whole world but lost our soul it would all be meaningless. I believe that's true! I'm so thankful for this moment, the people in my life, the Lord of my life, all the great things Jesus has done in my heart. It's a great day to be alive! Let me encourage you to let Jesus live big in you today and reach out and make a difference in someone's life!

Let God make you all he wants you to be. Soar as high as he will take you, Run as swiftly as he gives you strength. Let no one cast aspersions on who God is making you to be surround yourself with those who will help you soar and not tie you down with them on their level. Run with God! Soar with wings of Eagles! There are dreams being born that are ready to be released into the earth by the Holy Spirit in these critical last times. Find your tribe that will accept you for who God is making you to be and run with them as fast as you can don't look back,we are almost at the finish line!!

If We Lay down our weapons we can let Love win..................................................




a line from one of the songs  sums it all up for me.." Here's my heart it's open wide.... Take it or leave it I'm alright... because I find my worth in only ones eyes.... I'll lay my head down fine tonight.." live for Jesus, love is not a fist it's an open hand reaching out to the poor and broken.. a lot of prophetic words came out in 3 prayer meetings today.. I will share some on my next live radio show May 4th...

Bishop JC Ryle said a long time ago: there is no surer Mark of back sliding and falling away from grace than an increasing disposition to find fault in others. What a great quote by a great father of the faith. ( I discussed this this weekend)


there were a lot of good bonds of friendship and ministry formed and/or strengthened over the past 2 days. We were invited to help with the promotion team for the GR area for which I am excited. Speaking into people's lives is no light thing; we take it very seriously and very prayerfully... I am so thankful for the folks out there praying for us and being encouragers at such a time as this!

One of the nicest guys on the planet.. honored to call him friend... Blessings Peter and thanks for the visit..

Lots of great song by Peter Furler, old and new, made for a great end to Soul Fest... To be honest we did not want his over an hour set to end.. We could have kept on all night..  









Our Next Live radio program will Be Thursday May 4th at 6:30pm e s t .......


We have a lot to do to get prepared to take a load of material down to the Prison Ministry in Virginia... I don't think we can get it all in one trip but taking the majority of it.. We are already purchasing for trip 2. Here is a quote from one of Lens recent messages... "It may seem like you’ve been in this storm forever. Look past your troubles and you’ll see your turnaround on the other side of your fears. No storm lasts forever. Nothing lingers past its time. Hold on.Trust what Christ has done for us...We may not get everything the way we want it to be but it will always be Gods best for us if we persevere... God is answering all your prayers…….."

There are always the negative folks out there so I want you to remember.....
 Much of what is being passed off as gifts of great discernment is nothing more than a critical spirit and guess work on the part of insecure people. Don't fall for it and let no one lead you into "their way of doing things".. I will be preaching this week on this..

Sometimes You have to take a step of faith with no guarantees that things are going to work. And then you will start seeing the provision of the Lord. It’ll be confirmation that you’re going in the right direction and doing what He told you to do. You’ll be able to say, “It was God who told me to do this.”  
I will be in Bellaire MI on Wednesday May 3, Live radio on May 4, and Virginia May 11-22........
You guys be blessed.... see ya later........

Horatius Bonar Quotes On Christian Life (part 1)

I wanted to drop by and share this great quote from page 29 of Follow The Lamb by Horatius Bonar.

" If you have gifts, use them quietly and modestly, not ostentatiously.. Do not be forward to tell your experience, or give your opinion, or to take rank above your seniors.. Do not think that all zeal or wisdom is confined to you and a few about you..  Do not condemn others because they do not quite go along with you in all things;  nor speak of them as cold, dead or unspiritual..... Do not think that no one cares for souls but yourself.... and that no one can state the Gospel or pray like you do..... or that God is not likely to bless anyone like He blesses you.... Learn to be lowly.."

WOW!~! How different is that than the modern Christians use of Social media today?

Here is another quote by Horatius Bonar.......  also on page 29 of Follow The Lamb......

"If God Puts work into your hands, do it; and do it faithfully, through good report or bad report.... Bear to be contradicted and spoken against........ Do not fret when things go wrong with you or your schemes;  nor get petted like a spoilt child when you dont get your own way; nor fling up everything in disgust when you happen to be thwarted...."

Again, Do you see the difference from the soft believers of today....???

Here is a final quote for today by Bonar... Page 28 of Follow The Lamb..

"Let Us be truly humble, as was the son of God;  content to live unknown, and to do our work unnoticed, as a work not for the eyes of man, but for the eyes of God..""

Bonar is one of my very favorite writers of the 1800's. I long for the days when Christians major once again on the Strength that is to be found In Christ instead of majoring on how hurt and wounded they are.. A return to the teachings of the Puritans as found in the Bible are a help to this generation to do just that.. These majored on Gods Word, not their feelings.....

Peace,
Len

Dropping by to let my AZ friends know that we will be in Tucson AZ Sunday April 9th... Details following soon... Inbox for connection.. Here is a nugget from a recent message "We can preach real loud but if we do not know how to live right, love well, and be holy; separated from the wickedness of the age then we are miserable failures as Christians……
Christians who play with Pornography, Booze, dope, and half a thousand other devilish things are being robbed of their destiny by their own Lusts. We need to drive it out by the Grace of God!"...

We will also be in San Diego California April 10-14 and Felton (near Santa Cruz)  April 15 and 16.

Another of our newest projects is providing Bibles for China through Missionaries associated with American Bible Society In NY City.. Already the first of the funds has been sent out from this ministry. More will be coming... Hallelujah.. Also, The Prison Bibles and Books will continue on a monthly basis as well as missions cash from our ministry..

The TRO Camp Ministry and Guatemala, as well as Child Cry and Feeding New York will also be given Top Priority.

God has promised me a new platform with which to deal with many critical and urgent issues facing the Church.. So excited about increasing my speaking schedule.. We have now begun 2 prayer meetings a week at the ministry for this increase in our Ministry... Thank you to all who partner, share our posts, and follow closely the messages... You are certainly my best friends on the planet..
God Bless you,
Len
Those who are so faithful in rejoicing with us over the anointing on our lives and the increase on the ministry are first in line for some new projects..... So excited... God bless...

Horatius Bonar : One I admire

Horatius Bonar was born in Edinburgh on December 19th, 1808. He was one of seven boys, three of which entered upon gospel ministry (John James, Horatius, and Andrew) in their early years. He was ordained a minister in the Church of Scotland on November 30th, 1837, and was later given charge over the North Parish Church in Kelso. Bonar was counted among the dissenting ministers who left the Established Church to form the Free Church of Scotland in what was known as the Disruption of 1843. In 1866 he accepted a call to pastor in Edinburgh at the newly erected Chalmers Memorial Church. He was one in a long line of ministers in the Bonar family. In the May 1908 edition of The Scotsman magazine, they estimated that the Bonar descendants (John Bonar 1671-1747) served a total of 364 years in the pulpits of Scottish churches. From the pulpit, Bonar’s message was simple and clear: he preached a crucified and risen Christ, whose righteousness alone was the only hope of sinners. He was adept in the exposition of a free gospel through the necessary sovereign workings of the Holy Spirit. His presentation always placed an emphasis on the urgent and immediate necessity of leaving one’s sin and coming to Christ; and this as the only means of reconciliation between man and God. In a rare autobiographical piece, Dr. Bonar wrote of his theology: “Righteousness without works to the sinner, simply on his acceptance of the Divine message concerning Jesus and His sufficiency,–this has been the burden of our good news…It is one message, one gospel, one cross, one sacrifice, from which nothing can be taken and to which nothing can be added. This is the…beginning and the ending of our ministry.”

Horatius Bonar was born at Old Broughton, Edinburgh, Scotland, whose brother was Andrew Bonar. Following his education at the University of Edinburgh, he maintained an active and powerful ministry for more than half a century pastoring churches in that area until his death. Throughout his life Bonar avoided all sensationalism and was calm, patient, sincere, solemn and a steady writer. His tracts and books are well-received and well-read in all Christian circles. He wrote well over 600 hymns of which more than 100 are still in use. Bonar has been described as "the prince of Scottish hymn-writers." 
He was a voluminous and highly popular author. He also served as the editor for "The Quarterly journal of Prophecy" from 1848 to 1873 and for the "Christian Treasury" from 1859 to 1879. In addition to many books and tracts wrote a number of hymns, many of which, e.g., "I heard the voice of Jesus say" and "Blessing and Honour and Glory and Power," became known all over the English-speaking world.

Nuggets From My Recent FB posts

I don't say this unkindly but I say it.... Preachers who do not preach the Cross and the Blood rob their people of the deliverance they need.... Those who refuse to take a stand on the Word of God in order to have numbers are hirelings instead of shepards..... Ministers who are focused on getting the credit are spiritually bankrupt.... and if these issues are not addressed and the sleepy church in the USA doesn't repent and hit the Altar of Prayer our Nation will be in serious trouble... Please stop trying to sound like Dr. Phil and preach like the Apostle Paul and the Prophets of old.. This Generation is depending on you.. This may well be the last line of defense...

Todays esoteric prophets (so called) who are basing their walk with God on experiences and extra biblical "revelation" rather than on the Word, the Cross, and the Blood of Jesus; are conditioning the church for the greatest deception in recorded history.

I do not care if a Church has 50,000 people in it; that doesn't mean that God is there. If there is no conviction of sin; if there is no repentance; if there are no changed lives; If the message is "self" GOD IS NOT IN IT.....

"Do this and live, the law commands, but gives me neither feet nor hands..... A better Word the Gospel brings.. It bids me fly and gives me wings.." (An unknown poet)....Wings in Scripture often refers to Supernatural Power.. Romans 6:14 "For Sin shall not have dominion over you: For you are not under Law, But under Grace."......The glorious Provisions of the New Covenant guarantee the believer the Victory of Christ by Grace through Faith.......

The main message of the church is not to be ‘ We’re a nice, pretty place; you’ll like us.’ Rather the message should be ‘ This is a Holy place where sin is despised and if you will embrace Jesus Christ and Him Crucified, you will have victory over sin.’ "For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace." (Romans 6:14)
That day will probably start out like any other; business as usual on planet earth. But then, as jagged forks of lightning rip through the eastern sky; a trumpet will sound in the heavens and we will be translated in the twinkling of an eye. Meeting Jesus in the air… Its gonna happen; ready or not…… How many is ready for that Blessed Hope? Can I get a witness....?

In this modern and sophisticated age in which we live, sin is still sin.... The wages of sin is still death (Rom. 6:23)... The soul that sins will still die (Eternal Separation From God Ezekiel 18:20) .... All men are still born sinners because of the Fall... (Romans 3:23) AND Gods answer to this terrible problem we all face is still JESUS CHRIST.. (Acts 4:12) (1 Peter 2:24).... This being the case its very important that each of us who are saved begin to lift up the Name of Jesus, share our faith and testimony, and win souls as never before.. The Lord told us He would give the Holy Spirit to help us do this.. Lets not get off track with numerous side issues while the world goes to hell... Preach JESUS... Proclaim JESUS, Exalt JESUS..... He will take care of the rest...... 

I love something Jonathan Edwards said, " Christ does not sell Himself to us for our righteousness or anything we can do for Him. He offers Himself to us freely," so thankful that Jesus loves us so much!! This love is what prompts us to live Holy lives and walk humbly with our God.. may the God of Grace bless your Lords Day!! Peace!

When you declare with boldness and confidence that any other message
than Jesus Christ and Him Crucified is "another gospel"; you may be
called arrogant, prideful, divisive, etc... But turn a deaf ear... Keep
proclaiming the Cross with confidence... JESUS IS BETTER..... Don't go Back to Law.......

When we imitate our Lord in laying down our lives for others; we will find ourselves in the midst of a fuller sense of HIS peace, power, and presence... We are coming so close to HIS return. Lets go for broke and we will be amazed at what the Holy Spirit will accomplish through obedient vessels......

God Bless You my Friends....

2017 Will Be Exciting

Dear Friends and Partners,
Angie and I believe that 2017 is going to be a great year of Harvest in the Kingdom of God... We are going to continue working the several pronged plan that God gave me back in 1985 concerning our Ministry..
1- Revivals In Local Churches..... We are very Pro- Local Church.. In fact, its the backbone of everything done in the Kingdom really.. I will accept every invitation to preach that I can possibly fit into the years schedule..
2- Broadcasting........ This year the number of radio programs will gradually increase and we continue our TV outreach in Northern Michigan.. Most of what we air you all can see in clip form on our You Tube Channel..
3- Bible Distribution...... God has blessed us to be able to put Bibles into 27 nations of the world so far including the United States efforts.... In 2017, for the very first time we will be doing a mass distribution to prisons in the US through several different Prison Ministries....
4- Sermon CDs ...... many of my teachings are available by donation on CD upon request..
5- Local Food Pantry Assistance in Traverse City and South Bend IN.......

New This Year:
In addition to putting Bibles into the hands of Inmates we will also be gathering good Christian books and magazines and donating them to Prison Libraries.. Plus as God opens the doors, we will be speaking at Jail and Prison venues as well as helping to train leaders working with our friends in PA, VA, and Delaware...
Also, Its our desire to release at least 2 new E Books this year... There was a very great response to my first 2.... More on these things later.......

Here are a few nuggets:
Show mercy when someone suffers a fall..... because you don't really stand that tall... when your friend is down don't give him a kick.... or you might receive the short end of the stick... on the day with God when you stand before Him.... to give account for a life of sin.... (a little something I wrote today while waiting for them to inventory a shipment of books for inmates)

We are super excited about getting with our good friends in Indiana for an upcoming concert event we will be helping with in March... This week we had an absolute Supernatural Harvest miracle as we launched the Prison outreach of the ministry on Jan 3.... Len has posted 2 short blogs on it on the connect site and will be adding a couple others outlining the direction our ministry will be taking in 2017 and going forward.. We are super pleased to be connecting with several new Local Churches and continuing Broadcasting, the Revivals, as well as the Camp and Prison outreaches.... Here is a quote from one of Lens messages..."The essence of the Gospel is a changed life that comes from a Christ transformed heart.. ( 2 Cor. 5:17). From that heart will flow faith, obedience, holiness, love, joy, prayer, etc… All the elements necessary to maintain our growing relationship with God. Supplied and equipped by His Spirit we reach out to all the potential He has for us..",,,, Please pray for us as we continue to build up Pastors and local churches across the country.... God Bless you all...

Our hearts are to encourage all believers wherever possible and also help to encourage Pastors of Local Churches.... We are praying about different ways we can reach out to Pastors in the coming months.....

As we approach the New Year, I believe we must realize that the only way to find the peace, joy, and happiness the scriptures promise is to be more like Jesus... to take His teachings literally and pursue His Life... The Reason the early Church was so full of God is because they were so empty of self. Failure doesn't need to be fatal.... we can live in the power of the Holy Spirit.... but if we don't take God at His Word and have Faith in Him and It, we are doomed to repeat the same mistakes we desperately hope to avoid. In 2017, make the Word a priority... Not the Word as you interpret it but The Word as He gives it.... Trust What Christ has done and Taught.... Allow the Holy Spirit to take over!!" a quote from a sermon Len Preached 2 weeks ago in Bellaire MI...

God bless you all.. I will be updating again in a few days.......
Much Love,
Len

Evangelical Confusion

We Must Stand With Israel

Todays Prison Outreach Launch

Praise God.... Today we launch the brand new Prison outreach of our Ministry... And we have already received hundreds of prayer requests from Inmates.  Its a true honor to be able to serve in this fashion.. Angie and I personally pray over each request and we also pass them on to dedicated Partners who also pray for them..

We are busy gathering Bibles for inmates and books for Jail and Prison libraries. A brief update on where we are in our supplying efforts.... 8 cases of Bibles and 490 books to date... Our first delivery should be in April when we go to Virginia .... Thanks to all the new monthly partners and the one time gifts as well.. We sure appreciate you.

Hallelujah.... Big always starts small. Many always starts with few. Much always starts with little. Any journey always starts with a step. Healing always starts with prayer. And miracles always start when you believe. Never be afraid to…always start…….

While God is continually opening more doors and ministry opportunities, supplies are in even greater demand. Some of those include:
  1. New or used Bibles.
  2. Greeting Cards.
  3. Christian Books and Magazines.
  4. Christian Tapes and Videos 
We are in this for the long haul and we really appreciate those of you who give monthly... If we don't quit, we will make a huge difference in the lives of many families and individuals...  Thank you for not quitting partners.... While some have, (less Than 1%) we have gained a large number of new partners.. We are a ministry that's actually accomplishing what we say.. We want to encourage you to sow into this good and fertile Kingdom ground..
"Remember the prisoners as if chained with them—those who are mistreated—since you yourselves are in the body also." (Heb 12:3) .... 2017 will be a year of tremendous Harvest for the Church.. Notable Miracles, Breakthroughs, and challenges as well.... 

Here are some recent nuggets from my FB and Twitter..:
Dont get lost in the shadows of days gone by.... Live in the moment with the Love of Christ in your heart..

Oh yeah... they made fun of him... they ridiculed him... He was the gossip of the community.... But Noah wasn't in the dark.. Noah was IN THE ARK!


Jesus has extended Grace to you and your enemy.....

If you need constant strokes to feel worthy... the answer is to change your focus.. start looking to Jesus!!

What is painful today often produces character tomorrow..

You can be quite certain that any voice that contradicts the written word of God is not the voice of God!

The need for constant attention and validation falls under the sin of pride. Deliverance can be found at the Cross

As we live in these exciting times, we must focus our attention on Jesus Christ and anticipate His return. We must be faithful disciples, making soul-winning a active and vital part of our lives. We have a message that others need to hear. We must share it while there is still time.

Teaching today on how the Holy Spirit helps our infirmities. Romans 8:26 tells us "Likewise the Spirit also helps our infirmities."... Vines Expository Dictionary states that in this setting the word Infirmities means "want of strength, weakness, indicating inability to produce results."....... without the help of the Holy Spirit we could not produce Kingdom results in anything we attempt!! But thanks be to God we have the Holy Spirit in dwelling us and making us strong in Gods mighty power... In our lives we can become all God has ordained we become if we will follow the leading of the Spirit and surrender our all to Christ... The is No power that can defeat Holy Ghost power!! that's a Wow moment!!!
 
God bless you all and see you soon.......
