New Twitter Policy, Other Updates, And Nuggets 3-23-2020

Hey everyone,
I hope you are doing well and trusting Jesus during this crisis time in our world.
We are super excited to see Bible Prophecy being fulfilled in so many ways right before our eyes.

Today we started with our brand new operating policy on Twitter and I want to keep you up to date so that you won't miss any of the important tweets we share.
TWITTER POLICY: I do not know many if any Senior Leaders that spend the time monitoring and updating their own feeds and I don't know any that spend time keeping up with everyone. So I have come to the point where we have heard the direction of the Lord that I should spend my time in the Word and in prayer. (Acts 6:3-4)
Over the past 3 years we have been praying that God would send me a few local people who are Openly Interested in the vision and the message to help us with the time consuming tasks and God has answered those earnest prayers. So I will no longer be monitoring my Twitter feed though I may occasionally view it. I will be passing my statements and pics on to 2 or 3 different people here in TC area and 1 Person in Rockbridge County VA. They will post but the Words will be mine I assure you.

I have given them lists of those over us in the Lord to retweet and also a list of those who frequently share our material and our guys will make sure to keep up with them as much as is possible.. Periodically they will visit other pages as well as time allows. We must focus on reaching people with the messages God has given us.

Even though this virus has brought many things to a halt, I am broadcasting more than ever and the response is nothing short of overwhelming. I must stay focused on The Word and Prayer as never before.

CORONA VIRUS UPDATE:  Angie and I are well however, Michigan has been hard hit and there are cases in our county. All of us here are praying every day for You and Your Loved ones through this time.. We are taking precautions and moving forward. The ministry will lose offering income from our services and revivals for at least 2 months and possibly more so I am so thankful to the partners who continue to give each month keeping us strong.. EVERY OUTREACH other than the travel is still Open, Active, and Strong... Bible and Literature Distribution, Broadcasting, Groceries for the Elderly and shut in, Prison Ministry  Prayer meetings are now being conducted video chat until this calamity is past. And many more things we are doing. We are at this time looking for new venues of media broadcasting on sites where we will have to pay so THANK YOU FAITHFUL PARTNERS!!

I will be bring another update soon with additional clarity on some things..
Lord Help Me to say it all graciously is my constant prayer.. 


Here are some nuggets from past posts I wish to share with you.

God will bring generations together to reap this last days harvest! I am so thankful for the young guys God has put in my life. They are close to me. They listen and promote the programming and help me impart before I depart.

If you have to wonder if they really support you and your vision, they don’t. But God does. If you have to wonder if they are with you, they ain’t! Bad English, good point! Don’t fret. God has who and what you need!!

I'm sensing this: People are hearing the prophets and become afraid so the say, "we want a better word, we want a sweeter word. etc." Folks, Our eternity is secure in Jesus. We are going to need the endurance factor. Don't Scoff at the Holy Ghost. He is telling the Truth.

We live in a time of brazen disrespect for the ways of God. We must Repent!! What can be shaken will be shaken. 3rd trimester birth pangs in our world today. Telling the truth about these events can turn many to the Lord!!

Of the billions of people on earth presently, how many have had battles with fear? Answer: all of them. The only authority on the subject is God. Remember, the Bible says in the multitude of counselors there is safety. Go first to Gods Word. And respect believers take on it.

A careful study of Gods Word shows that God never tells us we can’t get rid of our fear! God never condoned fear! That’s not saying fear won’t try to attack again and again. Fear is a spirit and it comes from Satan. We are in a spiritual warfare and the Blood of Jesus is victory!

Preachers, you have a sacred authority to declare what Gods Word says. A work of the Holy Spirit can calm believers down and get us focused on Repentance for the sins of our Nation and our own personal sins. God says He will heal our land!!

When I struggle with fear I do not blame the Preacher who is preaching victory from Gods Word. I realize the problem is mine to deal with and I run to Christ!! Let’s all just stay with the truth; Gods Word that cannot lie. It’s a fight of faith. Jesus Won!

I want to thank everyone who actively participated in my broadcasts regularly!! My short message on Redeeming The Time posted earlier this week received the most overnight plays of any message ever in a 24 hour period. For those who show their support- we thank you!!

By Way Of A brief Update; Angie and I are doing fine up here in Michigan. We do have the virus in our town and are simply taking precautions. As of now we personally do not have it. Due to the faithfulness of our partners in the month of March we have been able to help some folks with groceries and as always, Bibles for prisoners is going strong.. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. We really appreciate all the new viewers and Thanks so much for coming back to the teachings over and over again.. You have been such a blessing to us... Always remember that when you are a blessing to others, God begins to pour out blessings in your life... The more you love Jesus, the easier it is to serve and obey him. The opinions of the world will no longer concern you because you can say, “I’ve heard from my Father and I’m doing the pleasure of his heart!
J. C. Ryle once said, “Another real danger to men is thoughtlessness and lack of consideration. Lack of thought is one simple reason why thousands of souls are cast away forever. Men will not consider,-will not look forward,-will not look around them" Thank you those who have thoughtfully continued with the programming and been such a blessing... I look forward to connecting with many of you out there on the road yet during the second half of this year...


My Friends, The only thing that can stop the lie of the devil is the Truth of God..
If There was ever a time to pray as never before that time is now. We are in a battle for the minds and souls of our children and the next generation.. Each day our children are sent off to schools where they are indoctrinated in every type of sexual perversion and gender identity confusion. They are told they can't pray in public, and are taught that life is cheap and meaningless. Many are being robbed of their faith in God. On and On the sordid agenda of hell infiltrates our culture. Its past time in the church that we fight back. How do we? By Taking a stand for Truth and crying out to God..Lets fight for our children and childrens children. We do this by prayer and by proclamation. To boldly stand and proclaim the Truth of the Word of God in the midst of Liberal Lunacy and satanic attack. If it means we pay a price so be it, but I'm not willing to let the devil have this generation. We must see the real power of God . Pray! We need an encounter with God. Pray! We can stay the course and see a Harvest of souls brought to Jesus and have a real and powerful conversion!! The Cross of Jesus Christ and the Local Church are the only hope thats left now! Stand! Stand! Jesus is coming soon and His heart beats for those deceived souls.. The Gospel can reach them. Please stop giving feel good sermons of pop psychology and address the real problem; Sin... And God's answer; JESUS....


In a time when the poison theology of the serpent has infiltrated the church and the voices are literally screaming at us that this Jesus exists to fulfill our every imagination, join me in crying out that our lives are meant to be saturated by the death of our corrupt selves and the carrying our cross. It’s not “all about me and my likes and dreams”, it’s all about Jesus. We live for Him and for the benefit of others that they may know Him too. Lord give us the courage to say it and to live it! Raise up preachers who will declare the glory of Jesus and not man. It’s not about me living my best life now it’s rather about helping others find Christ and helping them make their journey to that far distant shore. Let us spend and be spent for the cause of Christ!! We were not saved to squander every blessing on ourselves but to die to the carnal nature this world prizes so much and to go wherever the call of Christ takes us.... ( an excerpt from my message Sunday) folks we must return to the old fashioned altar and weep before the Lord for the souls of man and then go out and win them for Jesus..

Heb 6:12 tells us that through faith and patience we shall inherit the promises of God..... Patience is faith over the months and years... Faith for a long haul.... Let us be developed in faith that will cause us to endure to the end and thus receive deliverance....
This is the hour to cultivate wisdom dear friends..... He that has an ear; let them hear........ Press in to Jesus as never before and seek His face...... The rubber is about to meet the road........

Anchor in to Jesus and Keep the Faith my dear friends.
I will bring another update soon and until then I am inHis service,
                  Len Paxton

Update On Michigan Corona Virus relating To Our Ministry

Many churches in Michigan are cancelling their services for the next 3-4 weeks at this point. There are 12 confirmed cases with hundreds more people being "observed and monitored", Many are awaiting tests and many awaiting test results. Please Do Not Panic. Do what they ask you to do and walk in Faith.. God is still in control! The Blood of Jesus has never lost its Power! Can I get an Amen !
Even though there are many postponed travel events for us until 10 April, all broadcasting and Bible distribution Will Continue as normal and we will be doing some live streams for those who actively listen and watch our programs.
We are taking special care of Angie as she has Lupus and I also have developed low grade diabetes. We have not been exposed and are simply taking extra precaution as the Government recommends.

Psalm 91 is a great booster shot..
Angie and I will be streaming our friends at TSC and Harvest Riverside this Sunday ( neither of these 2 great churches are gathering either but are streaming services) with a small handful of friends that have not been sick or traveled.
God will see us all through this trying time and everything will be OK.. God bless you all my friends..

Friends most of our most detailed posts and links are on Twitter these days. Please follow me there @pastorlen.

We will also be participating in the Day of Prayer against Corona Virus on Sunday by meeting together with a small group of other Watchman Pastors. Please join in on this day, all across our world.

I will be Very Busy this weekend as we prepare for small prayer meetings and live streams. Please feel free to always send any prayer requests to my email, office@acts2618.com. Don't use messenger, I wont see it.The exciting thing about all that’s happening around the world is we are that much closer to Jesus returning. Don’t fear neither hide your head in the sand. Allow God to show you how to redeem the time. Stay informed and walk in faith.

Another You Tube Testimony From Australia.

Dear Friends,
We received yet another powerful testimony from our You Tube Channel that I wanted to share with you at this time..
God is doing miracles through our short devotionals as well as our longer TV clips.

This testimony is from Alex in Australia .

G'day Pastor Len Paxton,

I came across your YouTube channel a little over a year ago and it continues to be a blessesing for me. I enjoy and appreciate how you present Gods word in a practical way. I love the different secenry and locations you film in, it is very therapeutic and very interesting. I find myself googling those locations and reading the history of those areas. I am in my early 30s and live in Bendigo, Australia. Jesus saved me in 2016, praise the Lord!

You have inspired me to evangelise in my local area and God willing I plan to start a YouTube channel soon.

I would appreciate your prayers for my health and the health of my brother and house mate and friend. We are all believers who need direction in our
lives and motivation as we all suffer with poor health.

I will be praying for you and your wife and this Godly ministry. Please keep up the good work.

Kind regards and God bless,
Alex


That is such a wonderful Testimony Brother..........

Thanks so much for your kind words about our You Tube channel.
I am thrilled to hear that you have given your heart to Jesus. Its truly an amazing journey.
We will be praying for you as you reach out in your community and the world for Jesus.
When you start that You Tube Channel, make sure you let me know and I will share some on our Ministry Connect site.
I am personally praying for Your  health and that of your family and friends. Also passing these requests along to my staff to pray as well..
Again, I appreciate you taking the time to reach out to me brother. Please Keep in touch...
God bless you Alex.....

Testimonies from You Tube and Nuggets

Praise God everybody, we wanted to take this time and share another testimoney from our You Tube Video Devotions. Angie and I are so thankful God is using them to help people and change lives.

Here Is One from Australia,
Hi I just wanted to say thank you for producing these awesome YouTube clips. I stumbled on "There is a River Whose Streams Shall Make Glad" and I ended up watching many other videos by Len. His preaching about peace and liberty in Christ is helping me immensely.

I was experiencing these terrifying encounters with what I thought was the Holy Spirit, but instead of peace I felt this kind of terror and doom coming over me. I have always known the presence of God since when I was small but this made me think I had committed some incredible sin. I am starting to think it is actually some other kind of spirit trying to deceive me, and the Holy Spirit is not majorly upset with me, or perhaps even not upset with me at all. Anyhow meditating on the love and peace and forgiveness of God by watching Len preach is really helping me.
Thank you for producing these clips

Michael  from Perth Australia.


another from the USA
Hi Bro Len and Angie,

God bless you.

I subscribe to your YouTube page for your devotionals. I enjoy them and have found them to be Biblically sound and trustworthy. 
 M from USA
Again, We are  so thankful.......

Here are some nuggets from my recent social media.

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 2020, Make Church a Priority, 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!!" We Hope You Attend Church this weekend... God Bless You All..

Whatsoever He saith unto you, do it. (John 2:5). If you really want to serve Christ, do not do what you suggest to yourself, but do what He commands you. —— Charles Spurgeon from Following Christ page 4.

“You cannot have Christ if you will not serve Him. If you take Christ, you must take Him in all His qualities. You must not simply take Him as a friend, but you must also take Him as your Master” Charles Spurgeon in Following Christ , page 1

Jesus calls us to get up and get out of our houses; places where we have control, and go present ourselves in Church to worship Him and be challenged to get involved.

The pomp and idol worship going on in much of organized religion today is abhorrent to God. Jesus Christ is not to be manipulated and used as a means to an end. He is King of kings and Lord of lords!! It’s all about JESUS

We Hope your week is Jesus Centered and until next time, we love you...

Nuggets and Announcements Jan. 2 2020

Hey Everybody, Happy New Year 2020!!!!!
We intended to upload a special message on Friday Jan, 3 however our connections are having some technical issues. We should have them resolved shortly but another message will be posted tomorrow on the Old Time Power Podcast..

I do want to make you aware of some new announcements here however... This is especially important for our friends, supporters, and monthly partners.
We have been praying for about 2 years about our social media.. We feel its the Lords timing to make some cuts to our use of social media for various reasons pertinent to stewardship. Last Fall, I cut out 100% of my Instagram use. Starting Now the following cuts will go into place: Twitter:10%,  USA Life: 25%, Facebook: 60 to 70%.  There will be No Cuts in our Use to the following sites. YouTube (at this time).. No cut... Our Connect site: No Cut... Old Time Power Podcast on Podbean: No Cut......
I will be mentioning this on some upcoming messages and give more to the specifics as to why the Lord led us to do this.

Here is what we need from those of you that follow our ministry for the teachings both audio and/or video..... Please send us your email address and your mailing address so we can minister and keep in touch with you in these ways not related to social media. You can email me at office@acts2618.com. We will not send out more than 1 email per week and at first, less than that. And we will not send you fund raising emails. Again I will be talking about this throughout the year and explaining it.

Here are some nuggets from the past I want to leave you with....

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.

Here is a powerful verse in Jeremiah: Thus says the Lord; Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; Then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, we will not walk in it. (Jeremiah 6:16).... I have determined in my heart not to say no to Christ and His ways in favor of what the crowd wants! It’s my firm belief that God is raising up a people in these last days willing to be weaned away from the things of the world and ready to turn their backs on sin completely!! As we give thanks let us remember to be thankful for where He brought us from and patiently seek Gods will for the future. I believe that the rapture is very close and I want to be found pleasing in the Lords sight when He returns

Church, we were never called to entertain the world wrongly assuming that it would make them desire the things of God. What you compromise to gain you will ultimately lose. What you and I need is a move of Gods Holy Spirit one more time. Let’s return to preaching the Word of God under the Anointing of the Holy Spirit. It takes the power of God to draw people to Christ. All of the tricks of a weak backslidden church has not worked because it cannot work. The only thing that brings people to Christ is a church that exalts the Cross of Christ and preaches and lives by the Blood of Jesus. Oh God Almighty May our preachers no longer cave to the pressure of the threats of this godless society. Give your people a voice one more time. Let us return to prayer and stand firmly on the ground God has given us in and by His Word. Take us back to those old time revivals and prayer meetings. Birth some today oh God. Help us to tell this generation that God still loves you and you can still repent and receive forgiveness..Move among us Holy Spirit. Help us to live the truth.. in Jesus Name... 

Many who have stood through great trouble and conquered, later found themselves defeated because of sloppy spiritual conduct in times of seeming peace. Our confidence can never rest in the accomplishments or achievements of the past, but only in our continual place in the presence of God. Be sure to maintain an intimate relationship with the Lord daily. God bless you friends!!

Praise God!! So again my friends, Happy New Year 2020 and we look forward to ministering to people on a more personal level than ever before.. Thank You Partners for all you are doing.. God Bless You
