Help Me

Your time is valuable, so I will get right to the point. I am writing to you about an unheard of opportunity to win souls in California—an opportunity that did not come about overnight. We won this opportunity because we persevered against the greatest demonic attacks we have ever faced.  I must tell you upfront that I am going to ask for your help because this is a once in a lifetime situation.

Only once before in the entire 7 year run of this blog have I ever asked for help this way. Here’s the story:

When we began taking our tent through California, we practically had to use a crowbar to get permits, tent sites, and church support. There were times in Marysville, Paradise, and Stockton when I was barely able to stand because of fatigue from the withering warfare.

We endured some strange trials. In Marysville I felt a hand on my back push me, as I went up the steps to the stage. The result was a badly sprained calf muscle that I had to stand on for the next several hours. The pain was special. Thankfully, the Lord touched me, and I recovered far faster than the predicted 6 weeks.  In Stockton, the vehicle of one of our leaders was hit by a stray bullet.

We contacted church after church. Some helped us, others ignored us. We were told how futile and dangerous it was to pitch our tent in the worst parts of town. City officials either loved us, or hated us. I’ll let you guess what we got more of. We have fought every devil in hell, as we worked our way down Highway 99.

I held onto the promise that came to me in a dream, that this was a corridor of God’s Glory. I knew that above all else, we had to complete the crusade in Stockton.  I was convinced that if we just did that, then everything would begin to turn, so we held on!

Now, everything has changed. Reports of many being saved, and of notable healing miracles, has gone before us. Now we have more open doors than we can possibly fulfill.  This presents us with a whole new problem. For the first time I can see this touching the entire State of California.

The crowds will be bigger. The altar calls will be bigger. When this happens, the costs don’t go up gradually, it’s more like when you throw a rock into a pond and the ripples spread out. Expenses increase in every direction.

We need to retain and train workers quickly. We need to get Bibles, follow up material, food, clothing and new equipment.

Every military manual contains this same warning: when you have the enemy on the run, you don’t let him regroup. This door that was so difficult to pry open, will not stay open very long. We must seize this key moment.

Some might say that we always seem to need more resources. To that I say, we are a soul saving ministry. Tragically, that is a rare thing these days—which explains the mess our nation is in. We haven’t won enough souls!

We are not a business—we are a ministry. If provisions come in, they most go out.  We are not a club—we are an army. An army must use its supplies. It can’t sit on them.

Now let me talk to you about the most important door of all.

Fresno is the key: During our entire tour, one thing has been in the back of my mind: Fresno. I knew that we were on a collision course with this city. I knew more than anything, Satan did not want us here. Just as D-Day was the turning point in World War Two, Fresno is our D-Day.

This city which is ravaged by drugs, gang violence, and homelessness, is a gateway city. It holds the key to reaching the rest of California. The Holy Spirit needs to be poured out here.  There needs to be a core of workers who will brave very dangerous territory, as they bring the Word of God.  We are more than justified in spending as much time and money in this town as in all our other tent crusades combined.  Think of that!

 

That is why we are finalizing a contract to use Chukhansi Stadium in Fresno.  And that is one reason why I am writing to you. Fresno holds the key to our next level in California. A victory here, will multiply what we do next. A set back here will be a clear threat to our momentum.

Yes, I am going to ask for your help, but first I want to tell you some very important facts.

The anti-American Left is targeting the young people in our inner cities. Their insidious lies work on the young impressionable minds of our children.  Social media is leftist. The damage the left has done takes your breath away. They have dominated education, media, and virtually all youth culture.

The curse of the Left is keenly felt in the inner city, where a hatred for America and for Israel is widespread. This is alarming for more than just the obvious reasons. It is a disaster for the cause of freedom and for the church in America.

California is the matrix for this wicked ideology. God sent us here first of all to lead youth to Jesus. But along with that, is our mandate to expose the lies that poison our children’s minds. Of course they need to have their minds renewed by Christ first, but after that, they need to be shown that America is not evil, and that by loving Israel, it blesses America.

In the tent, you will hear me preach the pure Gospel, beginning at the Cross. However, after that we attack the legislated immorality which Democrats have force-fed these innocent minds. But, by no means are we a political rally. I preach from the Bible! Judges 2:10, warns America, “and there arose another generation that knew not God, neither the things that He had done for Israel.”

California has the power to destroy America’s freedom:  If this truth were known, every church in the United States would be backing us, and every believer in America would be praying and supporting us. That’s how vital our mission to California is for this nation.

 

The agenda that is oozing out of California is out to destroy every value you and I hold dear. If California leftists with their billions get their way, it will result in a horror for which there are no words. Democrats will create chaos and tyranny. Ignoring this will condemn your children and grandchildren to live in a world that is too terrible to describe. Worst of all, you won’t be there to protect them. 

Signs and wonders must accompany the preaching: The drugs, the lies, and the hatred are so thick that our crowds are beyond words.  By that, I mean that the demonic power which is blinding them, cannot be broken with words alone. That evil power must be broken, as God confirms His words with signs following.

That is why I am daily before God, seeking to surrender, in order to bring a new level of power in our tent meetings.

Again, I never ask for money on my blog. This time I must because the alternative is too terrible to describe.  But the wonderful part is that we can do the impossible!

I am asking for you to give me war bonds. That is exactly what they are! We are in a war for the very soul of a nation. We have been invaded by God-hating forces that will not back down. Our only choice is to follow our victorious Lord—the Lion of Judah, into this battle.

You know what is at stake. You know why I am asking. You know I will buy the tools and ammunition for total victory against the devil.  I am praying and believing that the Holy Spirit will move you to be bold, generous, and loving in your gift to the Cause of Christ in California.

Breaking News

Finally, the Holy Spirit has released me to share this news about California with you! The supernatural flow that is carrying us southward down Highway 99 is increasing. The river is gaining speed and the current is growing stronger. Our firepower has been replenished. The momentum is remarkable.

And then, out of the blue, the Spirit of God said to me, “Your next meeting is in Fresno, but your next tent crusade is in little Dinuba, California.” Yeah, that seemed strange to me too!  Where is Dinuba? It is slightly south and east of Fresno, CA. I wondered, “Why are we going there?” God warned me not to let the size of Dinuba fool me.  He said that this city is a spiritual volcano.

Suddenly, we find that we have more favor here than in any other city where the tent has been.  The city has given us the best location possible for a tent crusade—the site where their new High School will be built.  And get this: the city is letting us use the land for free! We already know this will be our greatest tent crusade ever.

Now for another big piece of news:  God has given us a new strategy that we have never had before.  It is called The Night of Miracles.  The Spirit of God spoke very emphatically, “Go to one church in the city, and for one night only, give them the exact same experience they will have under the tent.  Most importantly, God said that from now on, this will be the very first thing you do in a new city.

This was the opposite of what we have been doing. We have not had a miracle rally first. We always laid the groundwork by having a luncheon for pastors and leaders. I had never tried this before. I had to fully trust God that it would work.

We went to Living Word Fellowship in Dinuba. 500 people filled the church. We were all stunned!  Then the Spirit of God broke out on the people, as He demonstrated His power by healing many.  It was as explosive as any previous night where we had held meetings under the tent.

Soon, the wisdom of God’s strategy became blazingly clear: the people had a foretaste of the tent, and they were electrified by the Glory of God! The left knowing exactly what to expect, and could invite friends and loved ones, with incredible expectancy.

Dinuba is set. The tent is going there. When is the Dinuba Living Proof Crusade? I am not going to tell you. Listen carefully.  After Dinuba we are taking the tent to Fresno. I would tell you the date and location but we are finalizing the use of a very strategic location. Living Proof Fresno will be an epic display of the miracles of God and soul winning.

What?? Wait – why? Hold on, let me explain.  I am not telling you, simply because I want you to focus all of your attention on the next announcement I am making.

Even though Dinuba is our next Living Proof Tent Crusade, it is not our next event. The event I want you to focus on, will take place on Sunday August 11th, at 6 PM. We are doing a Night of Miracles in Fresno. That’s right, Fresno. It’s the only night I want you to think about. It is a night where we will be facing demonic power. We know the Spirit of the Living God will stir up intense and deeply entrenched demonic power. For anyone who lives near Fresno, you must come, and you must bring someone who needs a miracle in their body and soul. I am not exaggerating. August 11th is the next demonstration of the Glory of God in our journey south, along Highway 99.

We had originally announced this date for August 4th but my staff needed a break after the World Convention. August 11th is the date!

We expect the windows of heaven to open and pour down upon us a drenching rain of the power and presence of the Holy Spirit.  At the very least, please pray with us for the August 11th meeting.  This Night of Miracles will break open the next phase of the river of God flowing down the Central Valley of California.

This night is not limited to folks from Fresno. I am asking the army of God that has been in all the previous tent meetings to drive down and be a part of this astonishing night.

Remember the location: Sunday, August 11th at 6 P.M., at the Covenant Worship Center, 1461 North Chestnut Avenue, Fresno, CA 97303.  

Pray. Bring someone. I will see you there!

 

 

 

 

MY CRY

When I warned about a new law in California that will force preachers to agree with the LGBTQ agenda, one lady commented, “The Church is awake and powerful in California.”  A brother responded, “Then why is California going to hell in a hand-basket?”  Ouch.

What I am about to say is a cry, a loving cry to the spiritual leaders of California: Wake up! Please consider what I am about to say, no matter how painful the facts may be.  I am speaking out of a deep love for California. I feel a heavy burden for my home State.

I survey the moral devastation, but then I hear someone boast that the gates of hell will not prevail against the church in California.  I have to ask, “If the gates of hell have not prevailed, then what on earth is going on?  If this isn’t prevailing, I’d hate to see what is!”  The answer, as is so often the case, is to read that verse again:

Matthew 16:18 “And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

I am pleading with God for this message to get through to my fellow leaders.  The first clue to what God wants, lies in the phrase, “I will build MY church.”  The problem is that there are two construction projects going on simultaneously in the church: Men are in charge of one, and Christ is in charge of the other.

That these two branches coexist in the Body of Christ is clear in Jesus’ own words:  John 15:5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.”

Both branches are connected to Him, but only one abides in Him.  Both will grow side by side until the appointed time.  It is easy to tell the difference: The churches that men are building don’t stand a chance against Satan, and Satan doesn’t stand a chance against the Church Christ is building. 

Man-made churches avoid the front line, while the one true Church that Jesus is building draws its life from engaging and defeating the powers of darkness.

The church man builds refuses to offend.  The Church that Christ is building refuses to be ashamed.

It totally breaks my heart to say this, but, California is littered with Christian projects that were built by man, and for man.  This explains how immorality has spread like a cancer, even as churches got bigger. It explains why the government in California is working so hard to ban Christianity.

It makes me weep to have to say this, but I must. Paul leveled a stern warning to all who build “for God,” but do so by their own design.  1 Corinthians 3:10 “According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder, I have laid the foundation and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. 11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

Beloved, there is a terrifying outcome for those who have built mega-churches that God had no part in establishing.  They will all stand before God and be judged for their works.  1 Corinthians 3:12 “Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13 each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. 14 If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.”

Beloved, the autopsy on California leaves no room for another verdict!

Let everyone who reads this heed the warning!  There are disastrous things about building Christian projects by human power that aren’t readily apparent.

For starters, these man-made churches persecute the true Church in a way that is worse than the world does.  How? By you as the pastor of a church built on a foundation of wood, hay, and straw making Bible preaching offensive. By you who have given believers an appetite for fast food. By discouraging true pastors who feel foolish for holding fast to their convictions. You have left them feeling betrayed when you steal their people, and herd them into a faceless mega-crowd, where they no longer have any accountability.

I am praying right now that my cry will be understood by leaders. I am travailing for leaders to wake up while there is still time.

But, there is an even more hideous fact you need to face: Satan may actually be helping you build your artificial church!  He may even supply the money to build it.  A hundred million dollars is chump change to the enemy of God, if it gets him the prize he seeks: building a powerless center, where thousands can be disarmed and neutralized.

My precious brothers and sisters let me ask you: What could be a better trophy for hell than producing an artificial church?  It has all the right features, but no power.  It is the perfect distraction.  The devil can freely defile a culture in plain view of the church and she will be too powerless, self-satisfied, and oblivious to stop it.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ: If this describes your church, get out!  If you are the pastor of such a church, get back to preaching the pure word of God and making true disciples, before it is too late. Get right with God, and begin to turn California back from the abyss!

 

 

 

WHAT WILL SAVE CALIFORNIA?

California’s ruling party does not appear to be breathing the same air as you and I. Their air supply must be pumped in from some parallel universe. It is apparently a toxic mix of the smug detached silliness of Justin Trudeau of Canada, who rejects out of hand any suggestion that his policies are wrong, and the leftist loony logic of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who thinks we are putting illegal aliens into Nazi-like concentration camps on our southern border.

Governor Gavin Newsom actually believes California works, even as he officially presides over America’s first ever Third World Country.

California was once the most scenic place on earth with its mountains, world class beaches, and an astounding Central Valley. But, beyond that, California was a vibrant economy that fostered the greatest middle class in all of America.  The roads, bridges, and infrastructure were once amazing. Their educational system was the envy of the world.  California was once the proof of the American Dream.

Today, with the help of Newsom and other progressives, California is being pushed to the brink of disaster. Tucker Carlson said, “Now the State of California is known for a very different set of images: Needles and feces in the street, a dying middle class, the country’s highest poverty rate, policies that prioritize illegal aliens over ailing American citizens. California is still a symbol. But today it’s a symbol of everything that’s going wrong with this country.”

Gavin Newsom is cheer leading a statewide meltdown while the state officials bask in inexcusable denial.

Again I quote Tucker Carlson, “For Gov. Gavin Newsom, California is humming along nicely, apparently, and he now says the Republican Party is heading into the waste bin of history saying, “America in 2019 is California in the 1990s. The xenophobia, the nativism, the fear of the other, scapegoating, talking down or past people. The hysteria. And so we’re not going to put up with that. We’re going to push back.” Newsom ended by saying, “What we’re doing is working. I think Democrats are winning right now.”

“Apparently, somebody forgot to remind the governor that 40 percent of his state’s population lives near poverty. And then, having among the highest taxes in the country and cost of living isn’t exactly giving them a leg up. And there’s this: On July 1, California drivers will pay six more cents a gallon for gas taxes. That’s on top of the 12 cents last year. And that’s on top of already having the highest gas prices in the country. It doesn’t appear drivers are winning.”

The L.A. Times tried to put a spin on people evacuating California. Their headline reads, “Who moves to California? The wealthier and better educated, mostly.”  Then in a line of breathtaking smugness and elitism, they slander those who leave the state: “The state attracts a steady stream of college graduates, especially from the East Coast, even as many less-educated residents move to neighboring states.” Get it? If you leave it’s because you are less educated.

How can they not see who is really flooding into California?  State officials welcome back many who committed crimes in the U.S. These violent offenders may get better medical benefits than the American citizens who are the victims of crimes they perpetrate daily.

But there is a much darker motive behind the spin. Of course some wealthy people are attracted to Banana Republics because of the availability of slave labor. Silicon Valley is a quantum of hypocrisy. It is a region of ‘haves’ and ‘have-nots,’ with nothing in between.

Tech giants toy with people’s privacy and punish opposing views, all the while patting themselves on back for being “woke” to human rights. They even force American citizens to train the foreigners who will take their jobs. You want Socialism? Well here it is, brother. Welcome to Venezuela by the Bay.

Then, there is the Central Valley which is setting records for addiction, violence, and despair. You should walk with me through neighborhood after neighborhood−you will not believe this is America. Here are the true ‘huddled masses’−they are cowering in horror because drug gangs have completely taken over. Cities in the Valley have a program that pays gang members not to shoot each other. That is called total surrender.  Nevertheless, God is able to do the unimaginable…even here.

I am a prisoner of hope to the dream God gave me of a River of Healing running straight down the Central Valley of California. I have to stand by what I know is the word of God!  It will take far, far more than one ministry to turn the tide. All I know is my assignment.

Isaiah 43:19 says, “Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”

Why do I believe that God will do a miracle in California? Because He told me He would. And, at this point, with all the villains who are running her into the ground, He is the only one who can save her.

YOU MUST TAKE THE FIGHT TO THE GATES OF HELL

 

I knew I had reached a point of desperation that matched Jeremiah’s promise.  “And you will seek me and you will find me when you search for me with all your heart.”  The most shocking thing happened next. I recall that point of desperation and the cry of my heart: How do we reach America? The answer was stunning: It would involve risking my very life. It would be the most dangerous thing I have ever done.

The words thundered: “Then, you must take the fight to the gates of hell.” I must remind you of the most vivid dream of my life—the kind where you don’t know if you are awake or asleep.  I saw Highway 99. I saw it from Red Bluff all the way to Southern California. This artery of the great Central Valley is special to God. In the dream I saw a river—Ezekiel’s river, flowing with great healing properties, trees of righteousness on both banks. The voice in my dream said, “This is a corridor of glory.”

I did not understand why I was getting this dream. It was hidden in the Spirit until just recently. It portends a miracle of a magnitude I cannot fathom−especially when you consider the condition of Sacramento, Silicon Valley, and Hollywood. At this moment, these bastions of California have declared war—war on the Federal Government—war on the church—and has even declared war on science. For that matter, it has declared war on anyone or anything that disagrees with their radical agenda. How far gone are California Leftists?

At his own inauguration, Governor Gavin presented neither a vision nor a plan for the new “nation-state” of California—he simply flew into a rant against President Trump and emphasized that California is a total sanctuary state. Silicon Valley alone possesses power that boggles the mind. This bastion of technology and social media controls information like no other agency on earth. Right now, social media is an unchallenged mouthpiece to billions, and it is under the control of Leftist atheists.

Their power to brainwash young minds is beyond staggering. They have the power to shut down any voice they wish—and the voices they shut down are notably Christian, conservative, and patriotic. Facebook shut down Franklin Graham! If that doesn’t give you a chill, nothing will. If they won’t hesitate to silence the chief voice of Evangelical Christianity…what will they do to the rest of us?

California Assembly Bill 2943 has been delayed. It’s the bill that will ban the Bible by coming in through the back door. It means to ban any literature that suggests that intervention is needed for anyone living a gay lifestyle. I quote: “Contemporary science recognizes that being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender is part of the natural spectrum of human identity and is not a disease, disorder, or illness.” and, “(i) (1) “Sexual orientation change efforts” means any practices that seek to change an individual’s sexual orientation. This includes efforts to change behaviors or gender expressions, or to eliminate or reduce sexual or romantic attractions or feelings toward individuals of the same sex.”    https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_id=201720180AB2943

Faith doesn’t matter, fact doesn’t matter, science doesn’t matter, and now, outcome doesn’t matter either. Sacramento politicians are one big ‘never mind’. ‘Never mind’ that California is dead-last in education and a slew of other quality of life categories. ‘Never mind’ that they are spending like a thief with a stolen credit card. ‘Never mind’ that innocent people are murdered by illegal aliens that they protect from being arrested. California politicians, tech moguls, Hollywood and media have made an unmistakable declaration. They will remake America in the miserable and decrepit image of California. They are the black hole that can suck a nation into its abyss.

What can we possibly do about all this? What we must do is put our natural mind aside and obey God!  What God says will stand. What God commands will triumph over the enemy. Never forget that California has been the catalyst to historic revivals and has launched worldwide Christian ministries. Those wells are still in the heart of California. That dream has lain dormant in my spirit until now, but now God has ordered me to take the tent down the Hwy. 99 corridor.

 

Living Proof California follows the route I saw in my dream. Marysville has already been touched. Then Paradise received Beauty for Ashes.  The tent crusade in Stockton is only 17 days away. Fresno and Dinuba are already confirmed.  The rest of our targeted cities are in the works. Our goal is to do an outdoor rally in Southern California and culminate everything near the State Capitol in Sacramento.  If you live near the 99 corridor, the tent is coming to a site near you.  Will these crusades turn California around? That is totally in God’s hands. What I do know is the Lord will hit demons hard in California. All we can do, and must do, is obey the voice of God.

The greatest breakthrough we have had is Stockton, where the Lord opened the door for us, to give us the very best location. Remember: that crusade is only 17 days from now!

“I am asking you to obey God by starting to pray right now.  Pray for the workers to come into the harvest. Pray for protection as we expect high resistance from the enemy. Pray for abundant provision because we have invested massive amounts of money to make this invasion possible.

The urgent message of this newsletter is this: The best way to touch America right now is to invade California. I couldn’t understand that at first, but now I do. It is the way of God to take the fight directly to the main threat. We are going to take the threat to the gates of hell. Literally. I am hoping, with a great hope, that you will see this, and join us!

Acts 4:29-30 says, “Now Lord, Behold their threats and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may preach Your word while you stretch out Your hand to heal and let signs and wonders be done in the name of Your Holy Son Jesus.”

California is a great threat to America. This state may have deep perversion and intellectual arrogance, but none of these things can withstand the mighty power of God. The Holy Spirit is at work to empower and guide a mighty invasion of California’s Central Valley. Pray! Get involved.  No matter where or what country you live in…you can pray! I feel a miracle is on the horizon!

Will you volunteer to help me in Stockton?

I asked God how to reach America now

Acts 4:29-30 says, “Now Lord, Behold their threats and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may preach Your word while you stretch out Your hand to heal and let signs and wonders be done in the name of Your Holy Son Jesus.

”California is a great threat to America. This state may have deep perversion and intellectual arrogance, but none of these things can withstand the mighty power of God. The Holy Spirit is at work to empower and guide a mighty invasion of California’s Central Valley. Pray! Get involved.  No matter where or what country you live in…you can pray! I feel a miracle is on the horizon.

BEAUTY FOR ASHES

November 2018: The fire is consuming the equivalent of 10 Costco warehouses per minute.  14,000 homes are destroyed along with over 6,000 other structures. 88 people die.
Paradise, California is reduced to ashes.
Months later, thousands of the people of Paradise are still waiting in temporary housing in surrounding cities.  Experts say this town cannot be rebuilt.
Then God began to speak to us. He told us to get ready to go to Paradise. Honestly, I did not want to go. To begin with, I had no idea if anyone was still in Paradise. What about water and electricity? And how could we ever get a fire permit for a tent in Paradise?
Then I felt a strange relief. We could never go to Paradise unless we were invited. I was off the hook.  That is until a few days later when Miriam—a prominent resident of Paradise—called us to ask us to bring the tent. Now we had to proceed, not knowing how it could work out.
I must skip ahead to the point of this blog.  Beauty for Ashes was the theme that overshadowed us as we labored to make this miracle happen in Paradise. Through Miriam’s prayers and efforts, we got the tent site and the permit.
Then I had lunch with 40 Christian leaders from the Paradise area. They erased any doubt I had about Paradise being rebuilt. There was a holy resolve in the room. The date was set for Living Proof Paradise.  Then the next miracle happened.

God has gathered an army of love to bring hope and comfort.
Right now, many people feel a great expectation for these upcoming nights in Paradise.
What is the gift that we bring to this city of ashes?  I was at a loss to answer that question. Then it struck me: EZRA WENT IN FIRST.  Before the city of Jerusalem could be physically rebuilt by Nehemiah, God sent in a team to rebuild the people. That’s it! We are partnering with God and with many believers to lay a spiritual foundation before the physical one is laid.
Then I realized what the Word of God meant by Beauty for Ashes. Jesus quoted Isaiah 61:
1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the  captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable     year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, 3 To console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes…
After Jesus quoted these verses, He said, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” –Luke 4:21 Beauty for Ashes is an integral part of the Gospel. I believe that it speaks of a literal trade. “Give me your ashes in exchange for my beauty.”
This means the world to me because of the single greatest fear I had about this tent meeting. I didn’t want to be trite, offensive or rude. I could never say to these people, “I know how you feel.” You and I may never know how they feel.  To lose everything. To have nights of unimaginable horror. To lose loved ones.
But God is not sending us in there to give intellectual or philosophical remedies. Jesus just wants them to feel His presence in the tent. It is not for us to carry the burden of what these people need. They need peace that passes understanding. They need healing from the Great Physician.
There were people in the audience facing untold misery when Jesus said those famous words. He knew that His Gospel could set them free.
We go to Paradise to set up a tent. We are praying and working hard. But the gift we bring is not just water, food, and clothing. It is something money can never buy. It is something that comes to stay—for eternity. We provide the tent. God will provide His presence…and that my friend is a healing agent far beyond our intellect.
