Various Thoughts From My Social Media. 10-22-2019

Thanks so much for all the cards and texts and emails this Pastors and Clergy appreciation month. We are humbled that after 38 years of study and preaching so many of your hearts have been touched. God bless you.

We need to turn the lights back up in our churches so we can read our Bibles while a qualified Pastor preaches the Word boldly to us. We have to bring the Cross and Altar back and stop trying to appeal to the world.  

Oh friends, we have but a short journey to go, we have but a little way home, let us cling to Christ and His church. Let us love to gather together to worship for that is what heaven will be also. God won’t let you stay home alone in your mansion in heaven. You will gather.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14 (KJV)

Christ met all our needs on the cross. By making us a part of His family, He gave us a sense of belonging. When He died in our place, He affirmed our value. And by coming to live His life through each believer, He gives us the ability to live a victorious, obedient life. It's In Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for...!! 

Sometimes it’s just so disappointing to try and talk with folks. I mean, what do I know, I’ve only been preaching 38 yrs. today’s church is overrun with rebellion and arrogance. God help us!

When you can’t tell a person anything, how can they follow anything except their own thoughts ? Let alone Christ. Have they gone from Christ followers to followers of their own ideas and minds? Dangerous ground my friend.

At the Cross; it looked like defeat in the Natural..... But the greatest victory in the History of the World was won there..... It may look bad for you today, in the natural..... BUT You can rebound and do something great for God.... Things are not always as they seem..........

Any 'leading' you may be having that is telling you something that is opposite of the Word, IS NOT THE HOLY SPIRIT....... We are to be led FIRST by the Word and the Holy Spirit WILL ALWAYS line up with THE WORD...... Stick with the Word my friends... The days are upon us which will try each of us to see "what manner of people we are"... Stand upon the Solid rock of Christ Jesus..

It doesn’t hurt to say something nice to people and show you support them. It’s proper to respond. It’s the right thing to do. Remember actions are seeds sown and crops reaped!

God will bring people in to your life that will appreciate your experience and anointing and ministry from the Lord. Be kind to all but run with those who love and value your heart and voice.

Dear friends we believe we are entering the final great ingathering of souls before Christ returns.... Let no man steal your crown.. Let nothing in the garden of your heart that steals the pure joy of your early walk with Christ..... This isn't about personalities or the size of a ministry... This is about Jesus and this is about souls being saved..... Knowing all that Jesus accomplished at the cross should motivate us to share the gospel with others. This world is filled with hurting people who know nothing about salvation. Since their eternal destiny is at stake, how can we keep our mouths closed?
Too often we view the cross only as a past event that secured our eternal destiny, and we fail to see how it can motivate daily choices and activities. Stop to contemplate all that God is continually accomplishing in you though the cross. Let it be your motivation to live wholeheartedly for Christ. God bless you all!!

We have victory in us because of what Jesus Christ did for us at the Cross and Resurrection.. This great sacrifice Jesus made affects every area of the believers life.. Victory in Jesus is so much more than a song.. It is the living reality for every child of God! You and I can face Life steadfast and unshakable because of this Victory.. We need to renew our minds through the word of God to the reality of the Victory truths because of the Cross..
The Word of God is filled with so many promises that tell us what we have and who we are in Jesus Christ.. As we continually fill up our mind, our spiritual tank, as it were with these great and precious promises (2 Peter 1:4), we will rise up and walk in the More Abundant life Jesus promised us.. (John 10:10) .. God bless you my friends......

Powerful Testimony About Our You Tube Teaching From Africa

The Following is a beautiful email tesimony we received from a brother in Africa about our You Tube Videos:

Good day, Pastor.

I have felt the urge to send this email to you for a while now. My name is Chukwudum 'Chux' Akwah, from Lagos Nigeria.

I was having a health challenge; it started late last year and by early this year, I was told by the doctors that I would have to be on medication for the rest of my life. I rejected it, putting my faith and hope on God. The main issue was that I was reacting badly to the drugs I was given and we, the doctors and myself, didn't know that my symptoms were from the drug. 

One day, when the symptoms were really bad and I was afraid for my life, I was looking online for some encouraging words...I had read the scripture, but I truly was hoping for something from someone who I could relate to...and I stumbled on one of your teachings on healing. Simple and to the point, I felt peace as I listened to it. From then on I have listened to every sermon that I can find that you have posted and I must say that I have been blessed immensely by these YouTube videos. 

Thank you, sir, and may God bless and keep you. May He replenish all the grace that He gives you for these teachings. I pray also that as He has helped you to run your race, that He will help me to run mine... that I may finish my course.

My medication has been changed now and I am fine! I am trusting God that I will be taken off it soon but whatever happens, God be praised. It would be an honour to meet you, and I hope that I can get to do that one day soon.

Thank you, sir, and God bless you.

Chukwudum Akwah.
God bless you for these kind and wonderful comments. Thanks so much for watching and we pray Gods Miracle working Power in your life.. Len

Johnny Cash Boyhood Home In Dyess Arkansas..

Angie and I had a great time in Arkansas visiting The Boyhood Home of Johnny Cash in Dyess... I have been a Cash Fan since my own childhood.. This brought back many good memories..
We have been singing the old hymns and walking through the cotton fields; God is so good. He knows what makes us happy and delights to bless us in those ways. I was able to tape several new devotions around the colony and can’t wait to share them with you. I want to leave you with this verse and thought today, “Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God By Him, seeing He ever Liveth to make intercession for them .(Heb 7:25).... Friends there is nothing about our lives Jesus cannot redeem.. even our mistakes can be turned into miracles.. Trust The Lord today. He loves you so very much. God bless you!!

I have read every book Johnny Cash has personally written about his life...... Every book in his own words gives the most accurate glimpse into what life was like in that part of the delta in those yrs..

These are just a few of the pics we took. I am considering opening a private photo gallery that we can link to posts and you all can see the rest..
We love our friends and partners.. May God bless you today...  This link is hot and ready to take you there..

Johnny Cash was born in Kingsland Arkansas and lived there until 3 yrs old when the family moved to Dyess..

Benton Arkansas 9-29-2019

We had such a great time in service September 29th  at Household Of Faith church in Benton Arkansas Pastored BY Bob JoYce..  That old time preaching and singing had us shouting and praising Jesus for the Blood. We feel such a kindred heart and spirit with these precious saints. Well, Our schedule has added a date in TeXas and then back up to Northern Arkansas late in the week.. Angie and I love all our friends and partners and we want you to Remember that Jesus has your life in the palm of His Hands. You are so valuable to Him that He stands guard over your heart and mind and soul.. In this bitter, angry and fearful age please remember as you represent Jesus, to show love, mercy, and compassion to all You meet and be a voice of faith in a time of fear. We will be sharing the new Devotions we have taped from the road soon... God bless You all..

Nuggets From My FB Post 8-20-2019 (with Comment Discussion)

I'm going to say something here because I am very alarmed... It is astounding to me the number of believers who are watching things on TV and bringing items into their homes that are absolutely demonic and then calling or emailing in to the ministry asking for freedom from depression prayer. Do we not realize that satan and his demonic hordes are going all out after those who Love God? As a Christ follower you really shouldn't be watching Zombies, Ghost Hunters, extreme violence or deviant sex on TV. Its not about legalism; rather, its about common sense and holiness of mind and heart and body... Satan feeds on flesh. We have enough battles without inviting more by the stupid TV and other media. Lets grow up into Christ Jesus. Lets see how close we can get to Him not how much we can sin and get by with. You will never be freed from the depression while you are entertained by satans choice delicacies... and myself and my fellow preachers need to get back to preaching these things.. People who truly want to be free and really have a heart for Jesus will hear this truth and be loosed from the devils clutches. Others who are Christian in name only will grow angry. But preach it we must.. Too Many are Depressed, Oppressed, and Bound by Lies of the Enemy. The Truth of Jesus will set them free. Compromise will kill them and place their blood on our hands.. Get rid of satans toys.. Purify Your Hearts and minds by inviting the Holy Spirit to do some housecleaning.... The Cross can set you free!!! Psalms 101:3, Romans 12:1-2, 2 Corinthians 4:1-5, 2 Corinthians 6:14-18, Galatians 5:1 and so many more..... Be free In Jesus Name... now obey the Holy Spirit by taking the right steps to walk in that freedom... God Bless You..

It puzzles me why so many are running all around naming the anti christ, which Jesus said was not possible until after the rapture, but all the while they ignore the stuff He said we could, should, and must know about how to live right. This is a mess folks. Only God can save it now.

One thing is for sure , the scriptures say that Knowledge puffeth up, (1Corinthians 8:1) . The devil takes advantage of people’s curiosity of these things that God has said is not for us to know. Once an illegal door to the Spirit world is opened, all “hell” literally breaks loose. Love for God and for Jesus edify s .. love for God and the Blood of Jesus is our deliverance......

Charging Summer 2019 Update

Hello Friends and Partners,

I thought it was time today for a brief update on all that is going on here at the Ministry.
We are charging summer 2019 by the Grace of God with a continuation of our several pronged outreach.
After 7 years on Spreaker Web Radio we felt the Lord closing that season and opening up brand new doors for our radio platform. As of May 2019, we now having program shorts on Spotify, Anchor FM, Radio Public, Apple Podcasts, along with several other venues. Then, On May 22 we launched our 24/7 stream on Zeno FM. The results so far have been tremendous..  Spotify, Anchor and our 24/7 network is linked on the right side of this connect site.. We air a variety of speakers and music too...

Also, My main sermon and teaching podcast; The Old Time Power on Podbean is going very strong for which I am very thankful and give God all the Praise. It is updated every Friday if we are not on the road that day. Please allow me to request of you that you would tell your friends about the Programming and invite them to listen.
Perhaps next month I will tell you of the strides we are making on You Tube as well... Viewers are up and we love that..

Right now, the process has begun for the distribution of thousands of dollars of Goods and Food supplies to be delivered to the poor so be looking for picture updates soon..

I live by this motto: What You Value, You Make Time For!! Angie and I are so thankful for those of you that make time for our messages, Videos, and Ministry. Some act like its too much to ask or that somehow they know more about everything and that makes your special friendship all the more precious to us..  Thanks for believing in the 38 plus years of Spiritual deposits from the Lord into our hearts. I want to say a great big thank you to all our Listeners, Viewers, and the Givers who are so faithful each and every month to help us expand our taking of the Gospel around this world through the various outreaches.... God bless you.... We Love you....

More updates coming soon......

I would like to leave you with some nuggets I posted on my social media:

Grace doesn't redefine what sin is... It doesn't make sinful acts not sinful. Grace is empowerment over sin enabling the believer to Stop sinning.... The essence of Grace is found in Christs words ,"Neither Do I Condemn You, Go and Sin no More..."

While you may appear invisible to people; never God! Be kind but invest yourself and time where it will do some Kingdom good.

The first thing we must do when dealing with doubt is to recall God’s past faithfulness, and remember His promises. God has done so much for each of us, we have no reason to think that He won’t help us in what we are going through now. When we spend time praising God for what He has done for us in previous situations, we are reminded of His Love and provision. Meditating on promises from scripture will reassure us that God will continue to meet every one of our needs.

The real Gospel is The old time Gospel.... Church is not a pick and choose buffet, its not a show, its not a theater, its not a talent competition. Church is a place where the worship goes up to God alone, the old time message is preached under the anointing of The Holy Spirit, and Jesus Christ alone is exalted.......... Methods may change but The Gospel never does and The Gospel still produces Holy living.....

What a Glorious Lords Day celebrating the Liberty He provided us because of the Cross and Resurrection.. Angie and I are so excited for the meetings coming up this year. We are also planning and preparing for our taping out in Monument Valley Utah, Arizona and California coming up Spring 2020, Lord willing... Our prayer for all of you is that you will walk in all Christ has for you and fulfill His purposes for you in these last days..  We Love you guys and are praying for you... God bless..

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.....

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!!
