Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, Not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near. —Hebrews 10:23-25
Those who attended the special service Tuesday evening, June 30th were given a message of hope from bestselling author and internationally recognized teacher on the middle east, muslims and the islamic culture, Joel Richardson.
“ “The day is coming…after the storms…we’ll be raised up…and we will see Him…and embrace Him! That is reality. We will see Jesus with our own eyes, sitting on the throne in Jerusalem. It will be as real as we are right NOW. ” Richardson went on to say “Let us encourage each other in these days. If our hope is fixed on saving our country we will miss saving the world. We have to encourage one another!”
Mr. Richardson spoke of a great revival in Egypt and of how the Lord is working in both Iran and Iraq. Mosques are emptying and thousands are coming to Christ. “My heart is encouraged that people are waking up across the earth. My hope is the encouragement tonight will be at the foundation of everything we do. As we approach the days to come, we remember to prepare out of faith and not out of fear. We have confidence in our God and we have confidence of what IS coming!”
