A Miracle in a Piggy Bank

A Miracle in a Piggy Bank

When Carolyn and I started out in our ministry, we had almost nothing. But we believed in what God wanted us to do. We were working with Jewish young people who were struggling with addiction and other issues. Many of them came from New York, and God began to burden my heart to work with them there rather than waiting for them to come to Texas. I went home one day and told Carolyn, “God has told me to buy a training center in New York City to assist Jewish kids coming off of drugs. I believe it will cost a million dollars, and I don’t know where we will get the money.”

Our total income the year before was $4,500. When I said I had no idea where the money would come from, I meant it. I didn’t have any resources. We were barely surviving. But we were happy in serving the Lord!

Our oldest daughter Michelle was five years old. She heard this conversation, and she said, “Daddy, I’ve got a million dollars in my piggy bank.” She went to her room and came back with her little bank. “I will give you the money. It’s here in my piggy bank!” I had tears in my eyes as we broke that bank open and counted out what was inside. It was $3.26.

Faith rose up in my heart. I took that money to the bank and opened an account to buy the training center. The teller asked me if I were crazy. He thought I had mental problems. I told him what God was going to do, and he laughed. He assured me the money would not be coming in. “You can’t pray money in, Reverend. You need to see a counselor!”

Every day I went to our center in Texas and prayed and fasted for a miracle. Sixteen weeks later, we deposited the final funds in the bank to reach the total of one million dollars so we could buy the building we needed. The banker apologized to me, but I knew the real secret. Michelle’s holy offering-her childish act of faith and Radical Generosity-had touched the heart of God and moved His hand to action.

Through the years, I have seen God richly bless those who have given generously to His work. When we give, we are not meeting a need God has. Everything already belongs to Him. When we give, we are expressing our faith. When we cling to everything we have, it really says that we do not trust God to meet our needs. A hoarding heart robs the owner of the opportunity to see God’s power displayed. It is only when we open our wallets and our hearts…both are vital…that we put ourselves in position to see God do things that are impossible to explain apart from His power.

Who Is on the Throne?

Who Is on the Throne?

Who is on the throne of your life? Many Believers would automatically reply, “God.” But is that really true? Men of integrity and honor, who dare to speak out against sin, too often become targets for egotistical men who place themselves above the will and call of God.

Is your heart a place devoted only to God, or has He been crowded out by worldly endeavors and enticements? Too often we begin our walk with Him filled with good intentions; we petition God wholeheartedly to occupy the first place in our lives, but eventually, the world begins to intrude. Our focus shifts to jobs, friends, or our family. These are all essential parts of life, but just remember that Jesus said, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” (See Matthew 6:33, NKJV.) If your priorities are in order, your motivation will be about pleasing God, putting Him first and foremost in your life, and then He will add His blessings.

We can’t limit Jesus to our timetable; we have to get on His. God is not going to consult with us to determine His plan or purpose in our lives. It’s our responsibility to determine if we are in His will. We have not taken over the world, because we have not been with Jesus. God has drawn the battle line and is sending angels on assignments to gather saints who are hungry and thirsty for Jesus.

In general, today’s Christians have no sense of destiny. But if we discover Christ within us, the hope of glory, we will be more excited about the Christian life than anything the world has to offer. (See Colossians 1:27, KJV.) Such enthusiasm kills inferiority, destroys the paralysis of the past, and gives a brilliant view of eternity. When Christ resides in His rightful dwelling place on earth, the heavens will open for the one in whom He dwells.

We have, leading the way for us, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah to consume the Enemy of our souls. He is in full battle gear and demons are trembling. He is clothed with the robe of righteousness and His eyes are as a flame of fire. He upholds all things by the word of His power. (See Hebrews 1:3.)

When we become convinced that this Christ dwells within in us, we will be a power that causes the enemies of the cross to quake and cower. When we’re gripped with a sense of the destiny of Christ’s mission and His present-day ministry, we will want to see it being operational in our lives. Who on earth has a greater sense of destiny or a greater plan than the Lord Jesus Christ? When we allow the “Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world” to function through us, it will completely change our outlook.

Eight More Months?

Eight More Months?

This week the government announced that it may be September—another eight months—before the refugees forced to leave their homes near the Gaza border will be able to return. These precious people have lost so much, and some of them are staying at your Friends of Zion Center. There are tens of thousands of people still living as refugees because it is not safe for them to go home. And that isn’t going to change any time soon, so that means we must keep doing all we can to help.

Another Terror Tunnel

Another Terror Tunnel

As IDF forces continue to work to root out the Hamas terrorists from Gaza, they keep finding more and more hiding places. This week, they uncovered a tunnel used by Hamas fighters with the opening under a school. There is nothing sacred to Israel’s bitter enemies—not the lives of Jewish people and not the lives of their own people. This is why our work in defense of God’s Chosen People is so vitally important.

Happy New Year?

Happy New Year?

A lot of us heard fireworks going off to celebrate the start of the new year. But for people in Israel, it wasn’t fireworks but rockets exploding that marked the new year. Hamas launched another rocket barrage at Tel Aviv, demonstrating that despite Israel’s attempts to root out the terrorists from Gaza, many more remain. The intense fighting continues, and the threat of the war from Hezbollah in the north continues to grow. Israel needs our prayers now more than ever. Israel needs our voices now more than ever. Israel needs our support now more than ever. Israel needs our help now more than ever.

The War Spreads Again

The War Spreads Again

Elite special forces units from Iran’s Revolutionary Guard have been active in propping up the brutal Assad dictatorship, fighting in Syria’s civil war. Iran is helping—not just to support Assad, but because Syria gives them another base on Israel’s northern border. The IDF has now been striking military targets inside Syria, and a top IRGC commander was killed in a strike earlier this week. This is yet another expansion of the war…a war that Israel has no choice but to fight and win.
