Echo in Eternity!

Happy Monday!

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.

One Small Spark

How are things going in your church these days? You know, one person can make such a big difference! It only takes one small spark to set the forest ablaze! Decide today, that you and your family are going to add so much VALUE to your church, that everyone will feel the difference!

Pray like the ancient prophets and apostles prayed. Give and serve just like those guys gave everything they had. Swallow your pride, make a bold move NOW, and do whatever it takes to be found in the sweetest center of Gods plan for your life… no matter the price! Dedicate the rest of your life to Gods ETERNAL purposes! Sacrifice today so you can help build tomorrow better world!

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.

Selah

Dream Big, Live Bold, and Make the Difference!

  4. WOW! I cannot wait to see the service online!! I will be waiting for it to be posted for sure!! I am so excited about what God is doing at Destiny Family Center! I find myself at times wishing we were there for every service, and then I have to remember that God has us exactly where HE wants us. LOL

    We had an amazing service at the Potter's House in Harrisonburg as well, and I feel like they are also making their Echo in Eternity. It is awesome to be plugged in to so many places that God is moving and doing so many amazing things. I feel blessed to be a part of all these moves of God!

    I pray that my fire will only continue to grow, and that I will continue to follow God's will. Then big or small I pray that God will use me and that I will leave my Echo in Eternity in the body of Christ!! 🙂

  5. God must have planted “echo” in all of us because yesterday after the AMAZING service I was talking to Helen about something unrelated to the service but yet it’s still in this vein.

    I told her how our kids need “echos” (and yes that was my exact words) in their lives to model and “live out” the same value system that we as parents are instructing and teaching them at home.

    What I feel is happening in the world today is our youth is being PULLED and SHAPED by the WORLD system, influenced by their surroundings and what we as parents try to instill in them becomes harder and harder unless like I said we have ECHO’s in their lives to reiterate to them what our value system is.

    Theses “Echos” for our youth need to be young adult or at least teens older than our own children but younger than us parents. This way, our kids sees that “Hey, mom and dad aren’t so wrong after all!”

    But, where are those echos? We MUST be busy raising a generation of echos. We must be busy disciplining and nurturing and teaching the body of Christ to be echos.

    Just like Mark said here to you Pastor, You were/are that Echo to him. Praise God that you were and you ARE! We ALL need to be an ECHO to somebody! We actually are ! We need to examine our own selves and ask ourselves and God exactly what are we echoing?

    Yesterday’s service was absolutely amazing! I could feel the altars being flooding in the beginning of the service so yes, that is why I started texting YOU MARK!! I think I even said “God is going to use you at the end of this service so you better get here!” or something like that. I just knew it.

    I truly feel that Destiny is about to be flooded and I have felt that for some time now. I won’t blog all my thoughts here but I think you know my thoughts as we have discussed my “rabbit trails” many times before. I see something HUGE there. If its God ordained, it will happen. If not, thats ok too.

    I thank you for being faithful to God and for being such an AWESOME PASTOR! You have stood the test of time and have come out on the other side now! I am expecting great miracles, abundance of blessing and an outpouring of souls!

    Describing you just now brings to mind the new word I learned today….. Hupomone (Greek for patience)…”to persevere, remain under….bearing up under……refers to that quality of character which does not allow one to surrender to circumstances or succumb under trial”
    This is from NIV translation of Gal 5:22 and I Thessalonians 1:3. Of course you must add the component of HOPE (biblical HOPE) to that too but you know all that!! AND YOU DO ALL OF THAT SO WELL!

    I thank you for modeling (echoing) such a fine example of faith to us all!
    We love you

  6. Woohoo! So glad to hear that I can watch it now! Rose you and the tech team rock!!! Thanks for all your hard work and dedication!
