Dear Saints,

Adam and Eve were the only two people (outside of Jesus) born without sin. They were totally free. The Scripture doesn’t tell us how long it lasted, but we know it was lost when they disobeyed God. Their act also effected all of God’s creation. It was pain free until the curse came. “For we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now and not only they but ourselves also, which have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our bodies” (heaven, our eternal home) Rm 8:22-23. Mankind will once again experience 100% freedom from sin.

A year after the American Revolutionary War started in 1775, the Second Continental Congress voted July 2, 1776 to separate from British rule. Two days later a new nation (America) was formed. Our forefather then wrote the Declaration of Independence. They wrote that by faith, for at that time it wasn’t a reality. Seven more years of war followed. God used George Washington to make our freedom a reality. God sent his only Son to the cross for our eternal freedom. When our forefathers dedicated this country to the Lord Ps 33:1 took effect; “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” From the foundation of our country the fear of the Lord and the reverence of the Bible had a place in the majority of people’s hearts. But today ungodliness has permeated America through laws passed by ungodly politicians and judges. How long will God put up with the sin of unrighteousness? Could this have happened because the church failed to perform the Great Commission?

The Holy Spirit wants to empower believers to be His ambassadors as he did at Pentecost. Since then major revivals have taken place throughout the World. America desperately needs an Azusa Street Revival. There’s a price to pay for that to happen: hungering and thirsting after God is a must Mt. 5:6, Ps. 40:1; also seeking first the kingdom Mt. 6:33, Jer. 29:13. If that’s applied, one will be bold like Peter and John. They were told not speak or to teach in the name of Jesus. Their response was, “whether it be right in the sight if God to harken unto you more than unto God, Judge ye. We cannot but speak the things we have seen and heard Acts 4:18-20. God doesn’t want the following scripture to become a reality in America; “the wicked shall be turned to hell and all the nations that forget God” Ps 9:17. It’s our responsibility to stand in the gap.

Whoever becomes Born Again will find out they’ve enlisted into the army of God. Jesus Christ is the commanding officer; the Bible has become one’s code of conduct; the weapons of our warfare are faith, prayer and the Word. One is trained by experience; tried by adversity and tested by fire. In His army there is no retiring, and the benefits are out of this world. Through the power of the Holy Spirit working within, one will not give up, turn around, or desert. Onward Christian soldiers sums up the life of a believer. Paul must have been a soldier; he uses warfare terminology quite often. He told Timothy “fight the good fight of faith” 1Tim. 6:12; “endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that wars entangles himself in the affairs of this life; that he may please him who has chosen him to be a good soldier” 2 Tim. 2:3-4; “Send fellow soldier Epaphroditus” Phil. 2:25; Paul says further, “I have fought the good fight” 2Tim 4:7a.

David Brickner director of Jews for Jesus, talks about warfare although he never served in the military. He received this information from paying attention to news reports. He writes, “No successful warfare is ever waged without having ‘boots on the ground’. It’s just not possible to win and hold enemy territory without physically entering into the field of conflict. It is dangerous, costly and always necessary. That danger, that cost, is exactly what lies behind the manger.” Those who have been rescued by our Lord’s bravery have been commissioned to continue serving as His boots on the ground. Are we willing? Are we ready? God’s battle plan was never any mystery, nor were there any hidden cost involved. “This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptances, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners 1 Tim. 1:15.

By sending a love offering to the above address, you’ll be part of this ministry. We are bringing the good news of Jesus Christ to other countries and states, by traveling, and via TV and radio. Testimonies and the Word of God are going forth, and God is giving the increase. “I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase 1 Cor. 3:6.

Happy 4th, never forget Jesus was our ransom for our eternal freedom.

Serving Our King Together,

Rev. Joseph
