"Evangelism is just one beggar telling another beggar where to find bread."

Thank you

The Lord is saying: Go to the places where you wouldn't normally go. These are the places you will find the harvest. Up to now you have witnessed to the 'respectable' and have found very little fruit to take for the picking. Go child to the 'sinners' who know they are sinners. These will take your remedy without argument. And you will find fulfillment like you have never known in your ministry. The poor in spirit thirst and hunger. Give them a taste of me and they will accept me with open arms. Go to the places where you have not tried before.



Psalm 34: 8 O taste and see that the LORD is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!

John 4:35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

Matthew 22 : 9, 10 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.









The Tears of Jesus

The heavens extol your praises
O God of hosts

Your majesty in cloth of gold
sit in triumphant splendour
surveying with rapturous love, the earth,
Your" footstool"
we who have caused you so much sorrow
humble ourselves into subserviant insignificance at your feet

Your loving tender and forgiving arms stretch out to us
who are no more than "grass dried up"
You weep at our misery
Your tears falling every one a waterfall drenching each desert place within our hearts of stone

The deserts are satisfied and look to your light
which has long awaited their upturned faces and so there is life, life in abundance
Your life in our hearts
O King of Kings
Glory and praise to you forever

The earth in us is softer now and shoots spring up
The flowers bloom in profuse coloration and delightedly
send their perfume for your pleasure

We thank you for the wonder of your tears
O Lord our God.
