God ordained our tour of Israel in 1984. Channel 49 invited me to go and four other ministries were to go with me but they didn’t have enough money to get out of town, so we were the only group from Texas to go. People from New Mexico and the Carolinas joined us. There were 44 of us in all I recall. It was an interesting trip to say the least.
One specific event that was just tremendous, it was a great move of God. It was a divine appointment between Ezekiel Guti of Forward in Faith Ministries from Harare, Zimbabwe and myself, of Water of Life Ministries, Plano, Texas. We met in the Garden Tomb and had a brief conversation about my trip to Harare coming up in January. There was some changes made in the scheduling. But that is not as important as what God’s purpose was. It wasn’t just that Ezekiel and I meet but it was we met for a divine purpose. It was the day that the Gospel from my heart, Water of Life Ministries met with Forward in Faith Ministries of Zimbabwe and we met in the city where the Lord was crucified and raised from the dead.
Now Water of Life Ministries would go on with books, tapes, a television ministry that would enlarge, a radio ministry that would enlarge and subsequently go to five days a week, with five one hour broadcasts, on five short wave radio stations throughout the world on LeSEA Broadcast. That was a tremendous thing for this ministry. But as we taught on radio, television, and in books, Forward in Faith Ministries with Ezekiel recorded three thousand one-hour videos of "What is the Gospel."
It came about as I was taking Ezekiel back to Christ For The Nations in Dallas. I do recall that I was lost and couldn’t even find my way to there, even though I’d been there many times. It was all because of a message that God wanted to speak to Ezekiel. As we were driving along Ezekiel said, "You are a very bold man!" I said, as I just kept looking straight ahead, "Jesus died, He was buried, He rose again the third day." He sat there a minute and said, "You are a very bold man!" It was as if I wasn’t paying any attention to him, I repeated, "Jesus died, He was buried, He rose again the third day." He repeated again, "You’re a very bold man!" I knew that, I knew why, but he didn’t know why. I think after the third time I replied to him he said, "Well that’s the Gospel. How come we don’t preach it?" I answered, "I don’t know." We talked about it. He went home and some time later, a year or two, he called me and told me about the three thousand videos that he prepared for three thousand pastors. He had 750,000 people in his churches in Africa, and I’m not sure where all in Africa; but South Africa, Mozambique, Zambia, Tanzania, Malawi, Harare, of course, Zimbabwe, and I’m not sure, there were others. But he sent those videos to them.
In 2007 I met with him again. He was having a conference in Dallas, of the Forward in Faith Churches. I met and visited with him perhaps for an hour and a quarter. I then had it read to me on his website and I believe it states that he has churches in over 108 countries and states. Now what I want to say is this Gospel that God revealed to me went out from here by television, internet, short wave radio satellite, etc. At that time in 1985 I took it to Zimbabwe and it started going out, out from Harare, Forward in Faith Ministries, and today it is in 108 countries and states. That was God’s plan, where he brought two men that had never met, gathered at Jerusalem at the Garden Tomb. What a great blessing it is for us and Forward in Faith Ministries, how they have taken the gospel that God revealed to me all over the world in person.
This is the prayer found on their website. Now if you read you see that the gospel is in this prayer. He died for our sins and was raised from the dead. The resurrection makes the Gospel complete. Thank God for Ezekiel and Forward in Faith Ministries.
Pray to receive Jesus Christ into your life.
In order to invite Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, repeat the following prayer out loud with all your heart:
Lord Jesus, today I confess with my mouth that I am a sinner and I believe that you are the Son of God. I believe you died for me on the cross and shed your blood for my salvation. I believe that God raised you from the dead. Today I call on your name. Jesus, forgive my sins and save my soul. Clean me now with your precious blood. I open my heart.
Please come into my heart. I give you my life. I receive you now as my Savior, my Lord, and my God. I am yours, and I will serve you and follow you forever. Amen.
