Church @ Destiny Family Center was unbelievable yesterday. I am SO ALIVE with what’s happening for us these days! It has ALMOST become like one of the extended revivals we did BACK IN THE DAY…
- Like the 97 night revival in Murfreesboro, North Carolina @ Murfreesboro Assembly of God… with Pastors Jim & Vicki Gross!
- Like the 60 night revival just outside of Saint Louis, Missouri @ Word of Life Worship Center… with Pastors Terry & Sherry Palmer!
Until recently, nothing compared with the “encounter factor” of those 1999-2002 revival meetings. I will never forget the “good old days” of traveling around America as a revivalist! Thousands came to Christ, thousands more were healed of pretty much anything one can imagine, hundreds received a calling to ministry, entire communities were turned upside down (in a very good kind of way)!
Our last full year on the road, we preached 313 meeting in 365 days! My wife and children heard me speak something like 800 sermons in 3 years! Nobody can describe it…
Then, over the past seven years, we have foregone such invitations to travel abroad… so that we could lay the foundation for something much bigger! And we’ve ridden a few tremendous waves during this time.
Yet, nothing seems to compare with the magnitude of yesterdays service! The momentum we’re riding right now is our longest momentum to date. It began @ the seven year anniversary of Destiny Family Center… and has not let up for even ONE WEEK!
There were a few moments during yesterdays service, I thought I had died and gone to heaven! At the end of the service, I gave my usual invitation for people to come forward and dedicate their lives to Christ… and something like twenty people came up front, ELEVEN of them dedicating to Christ for the very first time! It looked like every one of them had tears streaming down their cheeks! Brings tears to my eyes every time I think about it!
The video archive should be up sometime today or tomorrow… I’ll add the link just as soon as its available! Take the time to watch that video from beginning to end if you can!
2 Timothy 4:5-8 But you should keep a clear mind in every situation. Don’t be afraid of suffering for the Lord. Work at telling others the Good News, and fully carry out the ministry God has given you. 6 As for me, my life has already been poured out as an offering to God. The time of my death is near. 7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. 8 And now the prize awaits me-the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of his return. And the prize is not just for me but for all who eagerly look forward to his appearing.

Echo in Eternity
When this life is over… the only things that will matter, are those things we did that will echo in eternity! And there is nothing that echos in eternity like the salvation of the lost. This is still the highest purpose of the christian.
