Spring is always a time of hope, a time of fresh determination,
a time of "catching up." As we rightly respond to
this inner stirring, summer will yield a rich harvest of all
we had anticipated. We are in this time of harvest.
The Lord is moving upon many in a very special way. To these,
He is making both Himself and His power known beyond their
past experiences. As a result, they are coming to a true understanding
of what it means for Jesus to become their very life. As they
experience the quickening of the Holy Spirit, they are becoming
lights to guide others to the Lord and to a deeper experience
It is my prayer that as you read this issue of the Banner,
you also are being stirred to experience this "spring"
of vision and "summer" of spiritual accomplishment.
I have just finished another book. I continue to both marvel
and rejoice at the testimonies of those who have read the
"Secret of the Stairs," which in a very real sense,
wrote itself. The new book, "Waterspouts of Glory"
also was marvelously quickened within me as it was written.
I yet thank our Lord for the rich deposit of spiritual truth
and understanding that I find to be within me. With this in
mind, I am looking to the Lord as never before, that the Word
which has been sown within my life might bring forth a hundred-fold
harvest through these books, as well as through the ministries
of the Banner and Pinecrest.
I am very much encouraged as I witness an increasing anointing
in the preparation of the Banner. I pray that there will be
in each issue a "present word" that will minister
to "present needs" in each reader.
Thank you for your interest and continued support. If you
are not presently supporting the ministry of Pinecrest, will
you prayerfully consider doing so. This is essential for the
continuation of this ministry.
Thank you for being a part of the ministry of Pinecrest and
may our Lord richly bless you.
