El Salvador seems like forever ago but it was just before Thanksgiving that we spent 11 days preaching the message of Jesus Christ and Him crucified for the sins of mankind! We had tremendous responses in the churches and out! People all over the world are so hungry for freedom! Freedom from sin, freedom from religion, freedom from the devil…. That is why Jesus came, to set the captives FREE!
What a blessing as we preached in the Detox center…. deliverance came to all who would receive! Enough 12 steps, systems of man and condemnation. The Holy Spirit touched many hearts that day. One young woman had been selling and doing drugs as a prostitute for 12 years, she was only 25 years old. Of course she had heard of Jesus but only as a God that loves her. Not the true and only God who died to give her the power to live free from sin. As we shared the Msg of the cross she received revelation knowledge that fighting sin in her own strength was opposed to Gods way. Jesus defeated sin on the cross and no where in the bible does it tell us to fight against sin. We are to fight the good fight of FAITH!!! She got victory that day and followed us to our meetings to learn more about the power the cross provides to those that are saved. 1st Corinthians 1:18 says the message of the cross is foolishness to those that are perishing but to us who are saved it is the power of God!!
She received power that day!!
We held 7 Pastors Conferences in 11 days. So many false ways, so many programs of man! From the word of faith teaching where they make themselves little gods and tell God what He should do for them to the biggest Baptist denomination in the country, called Friends of Israel. There they have menorah’s and the star of David and head coverings for prayer at the Altar. Going back to the Law to try and please God. The Trouble is it brings defeat in their lives as we can never keep the law. Only the Blood of Jesus can make a man at peace with a Holy God! Jesus said “I did not come to destroy the law but to fulfill the law”…. He kept the law for us. The Bible says Jesus is the end of the law for righteousness!!
Many hundreds of Pastors saw from the Scriptures that they were trying to live for God by law instead of resting in the finished work of Christ on the cross. We distributed the Expositors Study Bible to these Pastors so they could continue to grow in grace and the knowledge of Him!
Glory to God!!
One of several outdoor crusades for the lost, dozens and dozens of people came to be saved as we preached on Blind Bartemeous. The Bible says when Jesus walked by he cried out “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me”!!!! Interesting that the religious leaders of the day did not know who Jesus was and would eventually crucify Him, but this blind beggar knew He was the Messiah!! When Jesus called him to come to Him the bible says he threw away his blanket and came to Jesus! The blanket was issued by the Priest to prove he was actually blind and therefore allowed to sit at the gate of the Temple and beg. Without it he could not beg. But that day, and the night we shared that message in the San Salvador mountains people threw away their religious blankets and came to Christ!!! Not a church, not a man, not a religion, but JESUS!!! Glory to God, they were born again as Jesus said.
We have been invited back and the next time will cross the border into Nicaragua with one purpose to preach deliverance to the captives!!
Thank you for your prayers. We are now in Mexico for one month and after a rest of 10 days we will go back to S America.
God bless you,
