I am sure most of you reading this news letter feel as I do about my faith. I know I believe God's Word. Well, do I believe God's Word? This is a question we all need to search deep for the answer. We read the Bible and we see where faith moves mountains, heals the sick, raises the dead, delivers evil armies into the hands of believers and much more. We believe in our salvation and we say we believe the Bible from cover to cover, but do we? We say we believe the miracles that Jesus performed back then, but some don't believe that He can do them today, why is this? He says He is a God that will not change, He's the same yesterday, today and forever. We look at our lives and we see areas where we have taken authority over the situations and they haven't moved. What seems to be the problem? I can tell you without hesitation. We don't believe that we believe. If there's a tiny bit of doubt in our faith, we cannot expect God to move on our request. We have to know and believe in God's Word and that the miracle is already done when we finish praying. I know when the born again Children of God have the power to move the devil and all his demons. We only need to take authority over our minds and not allow doubt to have any part in our lives. We just need to think positive and believe.
God Is Our Provider
God has promised us, in His Word, that He will provide for us as we trust Him. I know that many of us do without or have lack because we fail to place our total confidence in His promise. All through the Bible the Lord provided for His people. Never once did He fail any of His children. He's the same Father and provider, today, as He was back then. God is no respecter of persons. I have had to walk through valleys just as some of you have had to do. I praise the Lord that we have been able to see many souls saved as we have. There was a gentleman that stood up in church and made a statement, "You know, we serve a slow God. He's the slowest there is , but He's always on time." This is true. We pray and ask God to provide, but we expect it right now. Jesus tells us, in the Scriptures, that when we pray, we must believe that we have those things we pray for and we shall receive them. He didn't say they would come that very minute. He said, we would receive them. We must learn to accept the fact that God is our provider and that he knows exactly what we need and when we need it. In the scriptures we find, that the Apostle Paul faced many of the same battles that we face today. He was continually asking for help so that he could help others. Ministries that are called of God will face difficulties, if they are doing the Lords work. To my knowledge, there are no scriptures in the New Testament where those called by the Lord where blessed abundantly with finances overflowing. There are many scriptures to see of the disciples went to bed with a need and woke up and found piles of money laying beside their bed, but could not find one scripture, but did find where they asked other Christians to help them and the Lord used those Christians to provide for His chosen. No matter how dry and lonely your valley seems to be, remember, that God is walking through it with you and He is watching you very carefully. He's examining the load you're carrying and He's monitoring your strength. He's analyzing your needs and preparing to make provisions for you. Pray for us that we will have the faith and patience to wait upon the Lord. I praise Him for placing you with us in this venture.

Walking The Rail
I am certain I have written on this subject before, but I feel the urgency to mention it again. I'm sure, each of you, at some time in your life has walked a train track rail or tried to walk a board or simply tried to walk a line on the highway. We all know how difficult this can be. Imagine for a moment that you are walking on a train rail. Things are going great and just as you feel you have everything under control you lose your balance and you have to step off to the ground. This is the way it is in life. It's very hard to walk that straight and narrow alone. Now, I want you to invision this. You are walking that same train rail, but now you have Jesus walking along beside you holding your hand. Each time you begin to feel a little shaky, He grips your hand a little tighter and helps you control your balance. You can walk forever as long as someone you can depend on is holding your hand. Jesus is that someone. Take his hand.
Thank You Thank You
This is all I can say now. Many of you have began paying your Tithes to this Ministry and God is showing you that, it's anointed fertile ground. The way I know is your Tithes keep increasing week after week or month after month. If you're one of the skeptical ones, please try sowing your Tithes and offerings with this Ministry and watch what God will do.
If the Holy Ghost has placed you under conviction, you fear of going to Hell, you need to repent and ask Jesus to come into your heart. Please repeat: Father God, I'm a sinner, please forgive my sins. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Your Son and I believe in my heart You raised Him from the dead. I ask Jesus to come into my heart and be my Saviour.
