I as a young man once worked in a peach orchard for about two weeks. My job was to stand on a step ladder and take down the wormy peaches and those that were shriveled so the healthy ones would thrive. It was a lesson I would see take place in the future.
For years I preached the gospel and taught the Word to many people; in the US, Africa, and Mexico in person, and on television, radio, satellite, and shortwave all over the world, on some media five days a week. I watched many people prosper financially. I saw many healed. I saw a great number that had devils cast out of them. They would tell me what a great ministry I had. But in 2004 the day came when the power of darkness was loosed on my ministry and they became offended. They rejected me, despised me, they scattered.
In the 1990’s I began giving all my teaching tapes and their albums away free of charge. Then in 2002 the Lord instructed me to throw all those tapes away and their albums and instructed everyone to do the same.
When the power of darkness came they were greatly offended at of my obedience to the Lord. They accused me, they railed against me, they lied about me, and they were determined to bring my ministry down to nothing. I received many letters telling me of their intent to empty the blue chairs in my sanctuary.
I was never discouraged. However, I have been filled with disappointment. God has been leading me to overcome the sins of God’s people laid upon my soul.
3 For the enemy hath persecuted my soul; he hath smitten my life down to the ground; he hath made me to dwell in darkness, as those that have been long dead.
4 Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is desolate.
I am grateful and thankful that the Lord didn’t believe all that that was said about me. Like Jesus told Abraham in the 18th chapter of Genesis he was going down to visit Sodom and Gomorrah to see if what he had heard was true, Jesus came to my ministry. The accusations brought against me Jesus checked out for himself and found them to be false.
17 And the Lord said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do;
18 Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?
19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord, to do justice and judgment; that the Lord may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.
20 And the Lord said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;
21 I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.
The words that I have spoken judged many that departed from me.
I went through tough days but the Lord led me and brought me through. I have put off most of the sins of God;s people that they put on me that brought me low. God brought my ministry back. We are on television in all 50 states via World Harvest Television. We are on Live-stream, Roku, Apple TV, YouTube, and some shortwave all over the world, preaching the gospel.
God is able to make this servant stand!
33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.
4 Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.
Servant and apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ
