Dear beloved in the Lord
Praise be to the Lord Jesus
The return of our Lord Jesus is imminent. Let us not waste our time and energy in our efforts to bring the gospel to the unreached. Whatever we have—our health, wealth, wisdom, power, everything—has been given us by our Lord to be used for HIS glory, for HIS Kingdom's sake.
Our Heavenly Bridegroom wants us to be wise virgins who have oil in our lamps when He comes (Mt. 25:1-13). Our Master wants to see us as His wise and faithful servants, whom He made ruler over His household, and to give them food in due season (Mt. 24:45-51).
Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man will come. Let us not bury our talents in the ground, but trade with them and make even more.
Certainly the share is equal for those who do His ministry and those who pray for and support the ministry. Because of the prayers and support of the faithful, the ministers receive power and energy for the work.
The word of God says, "As the share is of the one going down to battle, so will the share be of the one staying with the equipment. They will share equally.” (1 Sam. 30:24). So please, be always praying for and supporting those who bring the gospel to the unreached.
"And war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels fought against the dragon. The dragon and his angels fought back, but they were defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. The great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
“Then I heard a loud voice in heaven, proclaiming,
“ ‘Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Messiah, for the accuser of our comrades has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God.
“But they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony,for they did not cling to life even in the face of death.
”Rejoice then, you heavens and those who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, for the devil has come down to you with great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!' " (Rev. 12:7-12)
P.S.: Please continue praying for Bibles for Mideast and the Assembly of Loving God churches. We desperately need your prayer support. Please also share with your praying friends. With love, prayers and Shalom, and in the mighty name of Jesus,
