November 2023 Newsletter

Praise the Lord! As the body of Christ, these are some of the most exciting times to be alive! Daniel 11:32 says, “Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.”  While this portion of scripture is prophetic for a particular time  – it is truth that declares the reality for those who know their God – at any point of time.

This is a critical and crucial hour for Believers, all over the world, to make a decision concerning what they believe.  The Bible speaks of the last days being filled with many convincing voices, bringing great deception and leading many away from truth.  It says the deception will be so great that vast numbers of people will fall for it’s lies, and it will be so crafty that even the elect, if possible, will fall for it too.  However, those who have built their foundation of truth, of knowing what is right and what is wrong according to the Word of God – will remain steadfast and true to the end. Once we have decided to believe God’s Word above every other voice – there can be no wavering, or turning back on that decision.  It’s all or nothing when it comes to making this choice to not fall prey to the deception that is coming and has already infiltrated this earth. We must decide to keep our eyes set and focused on Jesus and the truth of His Word.

Sadly, many believers have not read the Word of God for themselves. They have no real knowledge of God’s ways, His character, or His will.  They don’t know about who the Word says they are, or what they have been given through the finished work of the cross. The trouble is, in these last days, we will find ourselves not just surrounded by, but bombarded by very strong opinions and  unless we have already begun to renew our minds to the truth of God’s Word and allowed the Holy Spirit to sanctify our minds – we will be easily deceived.

Which is why we want to encourage each of our partners to make a deliberate, intentional decision to read, study, and meditate on the Word of God from today! Trust the Holy Spirit to guide you and be your trusted teacher.  He will always  lead you into all truth.

We have felt a strong call from the Lord to encourage believers to open up the pages of God’s Word and fill their hearts and thoughts with it’s ageless wisdom that brings life and peace, and produces the powerful force of faith inside us.  We have made a Bible Reading Plan available to whoever chooses to join us in our quest to read the entire Bible within a year! If you would like to be a part of this, just click on this link and it will take you directly to that reading plan and you can begin right away!

Take a look at the Weekly Progress Register on the plan, and you can find the exact week we are currently on by the corresponding dates.  For instance, if you are reading this letter in the first week of November, then we are on week 44!

What a wonderful joy it is to know we are all equipping ourselves to stand as a mighty army of God – full of His Word and power, ready to be used of Him to do great exploits for His kingdom because we know Him!

Remember, the decision to read God’s Word is one thing God will not do for us. He has provided everything else. He has even gone as far as to tell us to choose life by opening our hearts to His Word. But the actual choosing and obeying is up to us. Once you make the decision to know God’s ways and walk in them – there is simply no turning back! Your life will be filled with every promise He has hidden within it’s pages! Go ahead and choose life today!
