“Oh Lord, may I slow down now? It has been so many years working at breakneck speed. It would be so nice to slow down,”
I presented my oft repeated question in prayer.
God’s answer so far has been, “Night cometh when no man can work. When it comes then you can rest.”
Now, I pray for health, strength and energy and He is providing.
For years God placed a small country on my mind. The words,“You need to enter that country as soon as possible,” kept ringing in my mind, but I just pushed it off until later.
Then one day earlier this year, the phone rang. It was the Mission President calling me. He was asking for a visit to discuss opening up a medical aviation service and television broadcasting. I realized the time had come and I scheduled my visit.
After several flights to meet with the Mission administration to coordinate the details for renting a TV frequency and bringing in an airplane, he recently called me to inform me about an evangelical pastor who had a national TV/radio license for sale and asked me to call him. ¡His story was fascinating!
“I could sell my station to several others who are interested for a good price,” said the evangelical pastor. “But God has shown me that it is for the Adventists. They are God’s people and they have a message for the people. God has been leading me and brought me out of the world when He showed me a dream of Jesus coming in the clouds of heaven. I am even considering changing the day of worship for my congregation from Sunday to Saturday.”
Seeing God’s hand leading in this, I immediately made plans to fly to that country. A few days ago, I went directly to the Mission Office and there was the Evangelical Pastor waiting for me. He later took me aside and continued his testimony:
“In a dream the devil visited me as a well-dressed, handsome individual, and he offered to make me very wealthy if I worked for him. At his side was a demon carrying a bag of gold which he offered to me. I recognized immediately that I must reject their offer if I was to work for my God. In the name of the Lord I ordered them away and they left.”
“This is truly the great controversy,” I thought to myself. But he wasn’t done.
“I then had another dream in which the devil was so angry with me that he brought a whip and whipped me across the back. It hurt very badly. When I woke up my back was very sore from the whipping. I prayed and asked God to take it away, and the pain was instantly gone. God has confirmed to me several times that the TV network that was placed in my hands has been reserved for the Adventists to use. Many other churches are scared of having the Adventists preach on television because they know it comes from the Bible.”
There was no doubt in my mind that God has been working for many years to prepare the way to preach the truth on national television in that country. Two days ago I signed the pre-purchase agreement at the notary’s office and wired the down payment which the Lord provided to GMI through an anonymous check. How God is going to pay for the balance in the next 3 months I do not know yet, but I am certain that God knows and He has prepared the way.
We will be on the air January 1st. PRAISE THE LORD!
Once all has been paid completely, I will provide further information. What a privilege to be in God’s Special Forces for these last days. King Jesus is going forth “conquering and to conquer.”
Will you be willing to join Him?
