Many who are deeply spiritual are saying that very dark days
are before us, and that life will not continue as it has been
in the past.
However, those who know the Lord are not of the darkness,
but are of the light. Just as it is becoming darker in the
world, it is becoming brighter in the hearts of those who
walk with the Lord.
There is a marked increase in spiritual hunger within many.
These are openly searching for further truth, and for a present
word from the Lord. Thus, there is an urgency that we become
a prophetic people who recognize and rightly respond to the
Word of the Lord.
For years, I have prayed that the Banner might have within
its pages a "present word" that will guide those
who are spiritually hungry to the Lord Himself. Much can be
written about the Lord and the Bible, but the intent of the
Banner is to have a "word" that will relate to our
present need and experience.
Recently, I attended a conference during which many told
me that the Secret of the Stairs and the Banner had greatly
influenced their spiritual lives. This is stirring me to seek
in a greater way, an increase in anointing upon each article
in the Banner, and a greater impartation of "Spirit and
Life" as it is read.
There are two passages of Scripture that stand out at this
time, and should be prayerfully considered. These are Romans
12:1-2 and Rev 4:1-2.
The Banner is sent, not only to be a spiritual blessing to
all who receive it, but also to provide an opportunity for
you to support the ministry of the Banner and of Pinecrest.
At this time, a new supply of paper for printing the Banner
must be purchased, which is very expensive, and Pinecrest
is urgently in need of an increase in giving that the debt
incurred through the installation of natural gas might be
Thank you for being a faithful reader of the Banner, and
for your continued support of this ministry.
IN His Love,
