We thank God for the word of God is not in vain. It is life and it is a spirit within our souls, hearts and spirits that keep us on trudging into the spiritual warfare of life, saving souls, making souls realize. Without God in this life, we are nothing. And so we gave them that spiritual mandate as the Father has given me the spiritual mandate to go into the world and preach the Gospel to all the world preaching people how to serve God; how to come back to Him; and how to offer your life as a living sacrifice.
I think that is the most difficult ministry in this world today because in religion you don’t see that. But here, it’s total commitment, total dedication, total obedience and total loyalty to the cause of Jesus Christ, which is the salvation of soul.
SHEEP IN THE MIDST OF THE WOLVES
In doing that in the midst of the world, you are like a sheep sends in the midst of the wolves. The only instruction the Lord gave us is be wise as serpents and be harmless as doves, because I send you as sheep in the midst of wolves (Matthew 10:16). Anytime, anywhere you can be pounced by those wolves and tear you apart. So that, they were sent with the courage in their hearts and faith that let them move on wherever they go.
That’s why we have KLCs all over the world being established and the territories of darkness being dismantled and sentinels of light being established in everywhere.
I thank the Father for this mission He has given to His Appointed Son is now share by many appointed sons and daughters of the Father Almighty.
BUILT WITH SACRIFICE
We don’t glory in the blessings as much as we glory in sacrifice. Because, this ministry has been built with the blood, the sweat, the tears, the pain, the agony, the trials, the tribulations of all faithful sons and daughters. The Kingdom Nation of the Almighty Father of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ is built with the blood, sweat, tears, pain, agony, trials and tribulations of faithful sons and daughters who have been with me from the beginning.
Why my brothers and sisters? During those times of sacrifice, there was no TV. From the 60s to 70s to 80s, we don’t have social media. All technology in my time, the fastest that you can send a message is by telegram.
In the Philippines, we have the RCPI; we have the PTNT. Whenever you send the speediest message is by telegram and it will take three days for you to reach the destination. That is the shortest period of time. You send it by mail, it will take you one or two months. Registered mail, it’s about a month. So, when your father died and sometimes it gets delayed, before it reaches the other end, your father has already in buried. You cannot go home anymore. It’s too late.
Now, it’s different this generation Z today. You have cell phones with cameras. You can send it anywhere in the world, in mini seconds, they can receive not only your message but even your video and your picture through Instagram, through Facebook. It is so different today than we were starting the ministry.
Now, you have nice transportations; nice roads and nice communications. Before, we don’t have that. So, it entails a lot of sacrifice to do in ministry in my time when the Father sent me into all the world and we didn’t have the means. We came from Tamayong. We only ate bananas. We don’t have money in our pockets.
RICH IN FAITH
All that we were rich is faith. Faith in what the Father has said. Faith in what the Father has promised. “I’ll send you into all the world, my Son. I have sons and daughters all over the world. They don’t know you; you don’t know them. But when they hear you voice, they will follow it, because my sheep, know my voice.”
He sent me into all the world when I cannot even afford to go to in the next town, which is only 50 centavos. I have no money in my pocket. I just ate bananas for five years. He sent me into all the world. Wow!
If you don’t have the faith that was implanted in me and you listen to that promised, you would say, “What’s happening? Is there something wrong up there?” One of those that followed me, he was not doubt me, but he was asking me, “Pastor, there are religions who were ahead of us for a thousand years but they were not able to reach the whole world. We in Tamayong, eating bananas, nobody knows us, we don’t have money, and you will going to all the world? Amazing!” It’s amazing.
THE FATHER WILL FULFILL HIS PROMISE
Throughout all of those years, that promised in my heart never left me. There were many who were with me that left me because of that. But that promised did not leave me and I did not leave Him, because it was done and promised by the Father Almighty. And whatever He promised, He can fulfill.
Now, almost 35 years later, what happened? We are in 200 countries and 2,000 cities. Now that I am talking to you, I am seen all over the world and people are being born in the spirit of obedience to the Father’s Will. (To be continued…)
