Hello 2014!

One year ago today I posted my very first message on Wordscroll.

From that very first post, birthed out of obedience to God’s call on my heart, Wordscroll and all its wonderful readers has been an incredible blessing to me. So far 52 countries have been represented by visitors to this blog. And now I realize that, by the wonders of technology, I am enabled to ‘go ye into all the world and preach the gospel’. What an incredible and exciting time we live in. A time we can’t afford to waste!

“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to the whole creation.” Mark 16:15

Every Christian believer has a calling on their heart from the Lord and the gifting to fulfill that call.

“Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them–” Romans 12:6a

I urge one and all to step out in faith to answer God’s prompting. Do you sense the urgency in the air? There is so much to be done and all are needed to do their part. If you simply take the first step, you will see the next and the Lord will meet your every need–just take that step.

“I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power in us who believe, according to the working of his great might–” Ephesians 1:16-19

Happy New Year Everyone!

I am so thankful, and I look forward to another great year of service to you, and to our King!

 

A Moment In Time

Time has limited man, but I AM not limited by time. You see, I AM the beginning and I AM the end. My Father knows the time, but you know the season. When you see that the tree is ready, you pick the fruit. If you wait, the fruit will be ‘picked at’ by the birds of the air and ruined or it may fall and become rotten. So it is with man–you must act when you see they are ready, ripe for harvest.

So many are lost because no one was there to speak a word in due season.

“But as to the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need to have anything written to you. For you yourselves know well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. When people say, ‘There is peace and security,’ then sudden destruction will come upon them as travail comes upon a woman with child, and there will be no escape.” I Thessalonians 5:1-3

A hungry heart unfed, will fall away unled.

You may only have a moment of opportunity to change a man for a lifetime. A sudden desire to speak a word or do a good deed may be the only prompt you receive to fill a need. Seize the moment before it passes by.

Will you try?

For yours might be the word that turns a broken heart to whole or you may be the catalyst to release a soul, but you’ll never know until you try. Your time is limited, but I AM not, so please don’t limit Me.

I AM the beginning and I AM the end.

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” Revelation 22:13

I AM the prompt to you, for you to be impromptu.

A truth you can’t deny–it’s time to try!

“Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Go in, tread, for the wine press is full. The vats overflow, for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes, in the valley of decision.” Joel 3:13-14

“But how are men to call upon him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without a preacher? And how can men preach unless they are sent? As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who preach good news!'” Romans 10:14-15

“Do you not say, ‘there are yet four months, then comes the harvest’? I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see how the fields are already white for harvest. He who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together.” John 4:35-36

“Then he said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest'” Matthew 9:37-38

“And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.'” Matthew 28:18-20

“So they went out and preached that men should repent. And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many that were sick and healed them.” Mark 6:12-13

“And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, as you teach and admonish one another in all wisdom, and as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Colossians 3:14-17
