Faith Made Whole
Faith is made whole by what is does; and so when those who claim faith, never do, their faith remains weak and less complete.
We must believe that God will reward our earnest seeking of Him, but also seek Him where He wills to be found, which can take time and effort of the soul. It is not always where we want to find Him, like in our comfy chair inside our house. It may be in the homeless shelter, or in front of an abortion clinic, or at a bus station, in our neighbor’s backyard, the streets of Pakistan, or whatever battle field He wills for you.
God is pleased by faith and works with us, even going ahead of us to wait and fulfill actions prompted by our faith. His Word says, “Where I am, there my servant will be.”
One of my most recent favorite verses in Scripture is in Samuel 14, where Jonathan moves out in faith, with courage, putting himself and his armour-bearer at risk of death., saying, “Perhaps, the Lord will act upon our behalf…nothing can hinder the Lord from saving, whether by many or few”.
The armour-bearer responds, “Do all that you have in mind. Go ahead; I am with you heart and soul.”
Hear the Word of the Lord,
The Lord is your armour-bearer. He encourages you in your faith, that it might be made whole.
Don’t Be Afraid
Great time today, in God’s will, venturing back into the subways for first time since pandemic broke out….
Preached to many…Jews, Muslims, Hindus, atheists and some believers. Many heard the Gospel and about 30 people took NT bibles. I saw them thinking searching wondering…and reading
Praise God and glory to Jesus. Thank you Holy Spirit!
The fields are ripe for harvest and it is an opportune time to evangelize. The ground has been softened by the virus.
People need to hear that they don’t need to live in fear, but Jesus who came to give them an abundant life, offers them eternal life as well.
“Wisdom calls aloud in the street, she raises her voice in the public squares; at the head of the noisy streets she cries out, in the gateways of the city she makes her speech.” – Proverbs 1:20-21
Wisdom and Discernment
My prayer requests is for wisdom and discernment regarding when and how to restart evangelizing in the subways, given the new conditions we live in and perhaps enhanced security that may be present in the subway system.
I know they we are living in great times of turmoil and uncertainty, loaded with fear, and some ways there may be an enhanced openness to the Gospel and in other ways people may be more sensitive and reactive in general. However, I know that love always prevails.
So, I am asking for prayer to know the when’s, where’s, and how’s to restart this work of the Lord as the city reopens, given the many new conditions and dynamics of a changed world and personal-work life.
In His Service,
Welcome to the new website for the “Underground RailRoad NYC” vision the Lord moved me into over 20 years ago. I was unsure about creating a new site, because I never really used the old site, except privately, as a refreshing and stimulating reminder of what I know I was called to.
At this time, wanting to afford others the opportunity to participate in some way, believing it may be time to do so and especially in the way of supportive intercession, which is needed and desired most of all, since “apart from God, I can do nothing.” I am very excited to invite you to participate, but also do so both humbly and seriously at the same time, because this vision is about bringing the light of Christ into the darkness, engaging spiritual forces in order to save souls, because that is the Lord’s good desire! May our God and Father in Heaven fulfill every act prompted by faith, to God be the glory!
