Since my accident
I have had a number of people say to me, God saved you for a reason, I believe that the reason has been revealed in both the radio ministry and the ministry in India. Many who have known me for many years have also commented on the Job like experiences of my life. I have experienced great success and have been blessed to be a generous giver. I have also suffered loss, and illness. I have as Paul expressed learned how to be both abased and how to abound. God has always supplied our needs. As a minister I have studied how God uses people to be his hands and to give into ministries. Philippians 4:10But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at last your[c] care for me has flourished again; though you surely did care, but you lacked opportunity. 11
Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: 12
I know how to [d]
be abased, and I know how to [e]
abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13
I can do all things through [f]
Christ who strengthens me.
As this scripture indicates Paul was supported
by those who received from his ministry and who understood and supported God’s call on his life. Let us not forget that Paul was confessing a faith that both the Jews and the romans persecuted during his lifetime. While he indicates that he worked he also worked in delivering the gospel and those who received blessed him Another example of one to whom friends and neighbors gave toward his economic restoration was Job. .
Job 42:7And so it was, after the Lord had spoken these words to Job, that the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “My wrath is aroused against you and your two friends, for you have not spoken of Me what is right, as My servant Job has. 8Now therefore, take for yourselves seven bulls and seven rams, go to My servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and My servant Job shall pray for you. For I will accept [b]him, lest I deal with you according to your folly; because you have not spoken of Me what is right, as My servant Job has.”
9So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went and did as the Lord commanded them; for the Lord had [c]accepted Job. 10And the Lord [d]restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends. Indeed the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before. 11Then all his brothers, all his sisters, and all those who had been his acquaintances before, came to him and ate food with him in his house; and they consoled him and comforted him for all the adversity that the Lord had brought upon him. Each one gave him a piece of silver and each a ring of gold.12Now the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; for he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and one thousand female donkeys. 13He also had seven sons and three daughters. 14And he called the name of the first [e]Jemimah, the name of the second [f]Keziah, and the name of the third [g]Keren-Happuch. 15In all the land were found no women so beautiful as the daughters of Job; and their father gave them an inheritance among their brothers.16After this Job lived one hundred and forty years, and saw his children and grandchildren for four generations. 17So Job died, old and full of days.
When my company ultimately had to be shutdown in 2002 and I had to lay off 65 people due to the impact the events of 911 had on my business, we also had to sell our home. Then I became sick and was given three to six months to live. Little did I know that those events would lead to preparing my body for the accident that would happen 13 years later. Ten years before the accident God began to show me faith that perseveres. He also showed me His miraculous power as I witnessed miracle after miracle, the lame walked, the blind gained sight and even got to be a part of raising the dead. During all of this my body was continuing to feel the effects of the illness in both my pituitary and adrenal glands. My response when I would be asked was that god had a plan and I was only responsible to be obedient to it. I still am. So today I am asking for partners. If each person on this list will give just $5 www.paypal.me/pastorgreg the need will be met. Some can give more, but most could do that. I hate asking for finances, but friends that is what ministries have to do.
Romans 10:13For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
14How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? 15And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written:
“How beautiful are the feet of those who [b]preach the gospel of peace,
Who bring glad tidings of good things!”
16But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?” 17So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Friends, Faith Harvest Church and the Chosen Generation Radio ministry have a primary goal of showing people how a biblical worldview will save America. That view is only possible when a person accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and confesses their sins and allows the old person to be crucified with Christ so they can be reborn. Our mission whether on radio here in America or in India is the same, to advance the Kingdom of Heaven and save as many as possible.
I am sharing this because an amazing opportunity to expand the program has come to the ministry and I need supporters to help make it possible. I am currently working to get sponsors but that is not enough. I need your help. Many ask what can I do? How can I help save America? Politicians listen to influence. Votes! You represent a vote. On my program your voice is amplified. Your financial support increases the volume of our voices by expanding the number of stations I am on. Right now I am going to be going on KTRB 860 AM The Answer in San Francisco
. This will reach all of the population centers in Northern California as I will be on Sunday afternoons from noon to one PM PST. Your donation at paypal.me/pastorgreg
will help to make that a permanent arrangement. I am also expanding on to www.truthnetwork.com
