       Abundant Life Crusades
Volume L No. 9

Job 22:28 (KJV) Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways. This light is the blessings and favor of God. Marge and I make this decree over you and your family, that you are and will continue to be highly favored and extremely blessed, the apple of God’s eye. That you be more than a conqueror and full of  peace, joy and love. You and yours are loved and we pray for you daily. We want to report that God is blessing the ministry. I wish we could share all the reports from all the areas of the world where you have helped us take the Gospel. We are getting many reports from the many workers this ministry is supporting in Africa, Cuba, Central and South America, China, Sri Lanka, India and the former USSR. Thousands are being reached with this wonderful Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. We thank God for people like you that have made our ministry to the nations possible. We will share in the rewards on that last day. For our selves, all I want on that day is to hear the Lord say,  Matthew 25:21 (KJV) His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant:… Then hear Him say, …enter thou into the joy of thy lord. That  is what I want to   hear on that last day.  What a day that  will be when we see Jesus! Please continue to pray for us and the nearly hundred full time ministers that are supported by this ministry which is supported  by people just like you, winning souls in many nations. We must do all we can while we can.  Philippians 3:14 (KJV) I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us continue to work while we can   The devil will allow a preacher to prepare a sermon if it will keep him from preparing himself. I remember years ago seeking the Lord when He made me to know that He was to be first in my life, He is more important than my ministry. Though He called me to preach His Word, yet my first and most important calling and obligation is to Him. To walk, fellowship and love Him daily first in all things. Many times we can allow ourselves to be so occupied with the cares of life that  we forget the most important is to seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. Matt. 6:33

 

The Contrasts between Christ and the antichrist!

In these last days the devil will manifest himself as an imitation of the Lord. The Bible calls him the antichrist. He will deceive the nations. He will not only deceive the nations but he will try to deceive the children of God. That is why it is so important to walk before the Lord in the Spirit of Holiness. We do so when we do what Paul told the church in Ephesians 5:18-20 (KJV) 18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; 20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;  The Bibles states (Mat 24:22 KJV)  And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. Many ask the question, how can we recognize him when he arrives on the scene? The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 2:11 (KJV) Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. On the back page of this newsletter, we list 13 scriptural ways to see and know the contrast between antichrist and our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe we are living in the very last of the last days. All we have to do is look around us and see the immoral condition of the world and the judgments that are falling upon the earth. We know what to do, we look up for our redemption draws near.  Luke 21:28 (KJV) And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

13. The antichrist will be cast into the lake of fire.

Revelation 19:20 (KJV) And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

The devil is defeated already. God has given us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

(1 John 4:4 KJV)  Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

(2 Tim 1:7 KJV)  For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Romans 8:31 (KJV) What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

Romans 8:37 (KJV) Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
We can not lose for winning. God not only gives us the victory, but He is our victory.

1 John 4:4 (KJV) Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

God bless you and yours.
