Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised...

Two Choices

I was called into the ministry at the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem, June 16, 1974. Two nights later I was asked to speak at Christ’s Church in Jerusalem for about ten minutes. I asked the Lord, "What shall I speak on?" He replied, "What have I done for your family?" I knew immediately what to say.

When I spoke I talked how God had brought Patty and Kathy into following what I believed was God. And I then read the verse Joshua 24:15;

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

After reading the verse I then said, "As for me and my house we will serve the Lord." I made a decision that day and stated it publicly that we would serve the Lord.

Several years later I was praying and it came into my heart, "I wonder how far God would take you?" The Lord answered me, "As far as you will go." My reply was "I wasn’t talking to you!" As I thought for a minute or so about our conversation, I replied back. "I tell you what, I’ll go as far as you will take me!"

Those two decisions in my life were major and they have helped me through some difficult times. But in my heart I know that I cannot be stopped from finishing my course.

God bless you,
