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....
