Thanks For All The Birthday Wishes

Thank You so very much for all the kind Birthday wishes, calls, texts, emails and letters... I also want to say a huge Thanks to all the listeners, viewers and supporters of this ministry.. Turning 56 is easier with people who believe in your vision and message from God... As we go into this new weekend here is a thought I want to share with you.
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!!!
Happy Mothers Day to all the Moms out there. I will be remembering my own Mom this Sunday and I pray that you will have a great weekend... God bless you...

January And February 2019 Update



Hey Everybody,
This year is off to a wild start in 2019 here in Michigan..
The weather this month has been so absolutely crazy as we have had one winter storm after another, several feet of snow, and ice mixed in as well.. Needless to say driving has been very problematic to say the least..

But on the good news side of things, we have been able to network and partner with several ministries to feed a couple thousand kids this winter and that always warms my heart.
Every child is a vital element of their communities, regardless of their family status. Feed them and nurture them because they can become leaders who can bring positive changes in the future.  We absolutely believe that the Church can make a difference by helping feed both in their own communities and elsewhere around the world.

On another note, I  (Len) , just received several hundred more prayer requests from people in prison and my heart is so stirred for these men and women.. I know that God loves them so very much and its very humbling for us to be used by God to convey that message of Jesus Christ and His Salvation. There are several boxes of books, literature, and Bibles that we have gathered here and are ready to ship to our partner Prison ministries for distribution in prisons in 20 states. The Prison outreach is very dear to my heart and we are excited to see what God will be doing in addition to what He has already allowed us to be a part of....

Let me say a word about our Internet Radio programming...
We have been getting outstanding testimonies to the power of God being evident in these programs.
There are several guest programs as well as messages from myself and the music is outstanding.. I hope you will go out to Spreaker Web Radio and follow the program and you will receive alerts when we are on air. There is also a selection let in archive.

It will soon be time for a fuller travel schedule and as always, I'm eager to get out there. I love the many different places I get to experience while preaching The Gospel. Please keep us in your prayers.

Due to the inclement weather, our Partner packages are behind. We are working on getting them out to you all. THANK YOU Partners.... You are the backbone of all we do..

Let me share this word with you.
"For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life: But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead: Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us;" (2 Cor 1:8-10) As Long as we keep our faith in the Lord Jesus then fear will never be able to overwhelm us... We are determined because of Calvary, to stand on the victory and deliverance side all the days of our lives. We serve the Great Deliverer... I hope many can join us for the next live program  (March 7) at 7 pm eastern... There will also be weekday programmings between now and then..

Ah! Young men and women, God calls, and the Blood of Jesus Christ calls, and the Spirit of Christ in the gospel calls, and the rage of Satan calls, and your sad state and condition calls, and the happiness and blessedness of glorified saints calls; these all call upon you to make sure a glorious eternity, before you fall out into that dreadful ocean.—-Thomas Brooks, Puritan Pastor 1608-1680. In our own time as well, the most urgent matter upon our hearts as Christians, should be to get the Gospel to the lost and wandering.

God Bless You All..... See You Out There Soon.....
Len

Nuggets from FB from The End of 2018

Happy New Year everyone... May your days be filled with the blessings of obedience to Christ.. A few have asked me what God placed on my heart for the New Year and it was on me so powerfully I waited until now to share. It is Psalm 1... I have included a snapshot of the Psalm in this post. As you read, understand that the word law in this passage as relating to the NT believers means , according to the Reformation Heritage Bible notes, “A General Term meaning the whole of Gods Word.” While we don’t live under the OT law, it is still incumbent on God’s people to obey the Lord by the power of the Holy Spirit. In Psalm 1 we see the Blessing comes to The separated Children of God as they stand in contrast to the ungodly. More on this in a message coming soon.... Angie and I love you all and we are very excited to see what this year holds. Friends, Trust and Love God!! Love each other, Draw near to God and He will draw near to you, not just in 2019 but evermore.... God bless!!





Charles H Spurgeon once said, “If we mean to be a Christian, and therefore intend to cast off the bondage of this present evil world, our resolve must be taken to bear all consequences rather than worship the idol of the hour..”. Just like the 3 Hebrew children were spared in the midst of that old fiery furnace, so too God will walk with those committed to His will no matter what!! Find strength today at the Cross for the journey ahead!! The shed Blood of Jesus is the saving and keeping power of the saint as well as the protection we will need while standing for His truth in this culture.. Never Bow— You won’t burn.. Keep the Faith!!

There is nothing we would be called to lay aside in this world that could possibly even compare to the rich rewards and Treasures that await us in Gods Eternal Presence.. Today is not all that matters. Our best life comes later. It matters how we treat people and handle our affairs honestly. Let’s not be like the world system that bites and devours. The Holy Spirit whispered to my heart one time, “If you are number one in your eyes, your priorities are misplaced.”......

I love how God speaks so clearly through history. If we would learn from the mistakes of the past we would never be doomed to repeat them and if we would celebrate the victories of the past it gives honor to God and builds toward the future... Remember my friends; The thief comes to steal and kill and destroy, but Jesus came to give more abundant life!!! As we get back to the Word of God we can enjoy His finest blessings...





"We will find it sweet to go up the bleak side of the hill with Christ; and when rain and snow blow into our faces, His dear love will make us far more blessed than those who sit at home and warm their hands at the world's fire." C. H. Spurgeon

Hope is what this world needs!! Remember this old hymn? “When darkness veils His lovely face, I rest on His unchanging Grace; in every high and stormy gale, My anchor holds within the veil.” Times will get difficult in this old world and it seems that evil will dominate. But our hope is not in this evil world, our hope is found only in Jesus Christ. In fact, Hope is Jesus Christ!! And in the words of one dear Pastors wife, “God’s Got This”.. make His Word your daily priority and when we finally relinquish control—- We meet Hope—- Jesus Christ..

“Whatever you do, Work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men..” (Col. 3:23). We need to be single minded as to our purpose in these last days and join hands with others in proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ!! In the natural, don’t be one who is always cutting corners and milking the system.. this is not a Christian value!! Don’t cause others to pick up your slack. This is not discipleship!! Often how we act in the natural is an indicator of our spiritual condition.. ask God to help you to be faithful and to keep improving each day. I truly believe that God is calling us to a higher standard in order to bring Him glory in these days.. Stand Firm and stand Faithful and watch God move mountains!!
