Almost everyone is wondering about the things that they
are hearing concerning some of the popular ministries of our
day. There are many different opinions about all this, but
one thing is certain.
In the latter part of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus talked
about two houses that had been built. One had been set on
sand and the other on a rock. The storms quickly carried away
the one built on sand, but could not affect the one established
on the Rock.
The Rock speaks of our being established and built up on
our Lord Jesus Christ, with His approval and blessing. This
means a total commitment to maintain holiness in life style,
along with honesty, uprightness, and integrity in every aspect
of life and ministry.
True ministry has always involved sacrifice, and times of
testing during which the Lord purifies all that is involved.
After this, the Lord will bless and prosper both the minister
and his ministry. A true minister will then turn all of this
for the good of the ministry, and the call that rests upon
His life. All ministers will be held accountable for the stewardship
that has been placed in their hand.
The search light is upon all ministries in our day. I have
searched my heart, and then held Pinecrest and all that it
represents before the Lord to be sure that He can bless and
prosper my life, along with Pinecrest and the vision that
He gave concerning it.
I can truly say that the prosperity that I desire is an
increase in His presence, anointing, and guidance. I greatly
desire the Lord to visit the Bible School, and to bring forth
dedicated lives and quality ministries for His Glory and purposes.
Also, I greatly desire the Banner to be a blessing and help
to each one who receives it. I pray that the spiritual quality
of the messages, and the anointing that rests upon the Banner
will increase, and that Jesus will increasingly be seen through
all its pages.
Thank you for your continued interest and support of this
ministry. I greatly appreciate hearing from you.
Sincerely in His Eternal Love,
