 My Utmost for His Highest


"Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God."  (Romans 10:17)


"And the government shall be upon His shoulders" (Isaiah 9:6)   

When Jesus returns, Hs will rule the world in justice and righteousness from His throne in a reconstructed temple in Jerusalem.  Till then we must endure the government of Man.  These are the "last days" according to the Bible (2 Peter 3:3), and we need to encourage one another to "keep our eyes fixed on Jesus" (Hebrews 12:2), the author and finisher of our faith.


To the Light of Encouragement in a web of darkness. 

"Fear not for I am with thee, says the Lord..."

                      Isaiah 41:10


“Now there was a rich man…And a poor man named Lazarus was laid at his gate....” (Luke 16: 19-20)
Life after death is a popular topic of debate today.  Even in the Church there are many who want to downplay the Biblical reality of eternal judgment after death for those who have rejected Christ Jesus and His Gospel of redemption, in favor of a more “positive” and “seeker friendly” approach, one that isn’t so “negative”.  But what does the Bible say about life after death?  We can learn a lot from the stories Jesus shared in the Gospels, especially the testimony of the Rich Man and Lazarus

" was His custom..." (Luke 4:14-16)

“And He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up: and, as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read.” (Luke 4:16)

Dear Brethren, Family & Friends,

Customs help to define a culture, and as we study the life of Jesus Christ, we can learn a lot about the culture of the Kingdom of God.

It was Jesus’ “custom” to go to fellowship with other believers, to read the Word of God, and to teach God’s Word to others.  But it was also His “custom” to heal the sick, the lame, the blind and the leper.  His “custom” was to forgive sins, preach the Gospel and to pray, and so much more.

In this world that is filled with spiritual darkness, as we yield to the Holy Spirit and allow the Word of God to live in us, we can “let our light shine” so that lost men, women and children will be drawn to Christ Jesus as we model the “customs” of His Kingdom.

We hope that this newsletter will be an encouragement to you and help you in your walk of faith in Christ Jesus.  And as it was Jesus’ “custom” to pray for others, we hope that you will set aside some time to pray for the missionaries and their families that are listed.  In some cases, we cannot even provide you their names, but the Lord knows your heart and He knows them.  Your prayers on their behalf helps them to stand firm in their faith and have victory in the face of opposition from the devil.

In these trying times, may the Lord continue to have Mercy on us all.


“O that a man might plead with God as a man with his neighbor!” (Job 16:21)
In these trying times it is all the more important that we encourage one another to stay close to the Lord.  Our relationship with God our Father through His Spirit and the Word will comfort and sustain us regardless of what we have to face.  The Bible has many testimonies of those who endured times of suffering, trial and persecution.  For some those were times when their fellowship with the Lord grew deeper and more intimate, while for others, it was the suffering that led them to the feet of Jesus to be saved.

Our relationship with our God and Savior grows as we spend time in His Word and through prayer.  As the financial and political pillars of the international community and America grow weaker, it is critical that we encourage one another to put our trust in the Lord all the more.  Remembering the Lord’s great deliverance of His people on the shores of the Red Sea, King David wrote “Some trust in Chariots and some in horses, but we will trust in the Name of the Lord our God.” (Psalm 20:7)

Let’s encourage one another to read the Word, remembering that it was the Lord who delivered then and it is the Lord who will deliver now, so that when the trials come we can endure, both for God’s glory and our benefit.

"Be of sober spirit, be on the alert..." (1Peter 5:8)

When we look at what is going on in the world, especially the political and economic turmoil, we can be tempted to interpret these events as just part of the ongoing cycle of human civilization. But if we want to have peace in the midst of what is happening, faith not fear, we need to allow the Word of God to give us understanding so that we can know how these events fit into God’s timeline as He prepares the world for the Second Coming of His Son, Jesus Christ.


"Well done thou good and faithful servant..." (Matthew 25:21)

We know from the Scriptures that judgment is coming upon the whole world someday.  But the Word of God says also othat there is a special "judgment" for the believers at the Bema Seat, or the Judgment Seat of Christ.  That is when the Christian is judged for the work that was done for the Kingdom of God after they came to faith in Jesus Christ.

What will we hear the Lord say on that day?  Will it be "Well done!"

Let's encourage one another to live our lives so that they will be pleasing in the sight of God the Father and bear good fruit for His Kingdom.


"Choose you this day whom you will serve.” (Joshua 24:15)

Salvation is a mystery, but God’s Sovereignty and Authority are not.  In this sin sick and fallen world, Christians must continually choose to yield to the Word of God and obey the Lord so that lost men, women and children will be drawn to Christ through our living sacrifice on His behalf.


"Blessed are you when people...persecute you...because of Me." Matt 5:11

"Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”  (Matthew 5:11-12)

Jesus said that when we suffer because we are saved it is a blessing.  Today, in Israel, there are ultra-orthodox Jews who are persecuting Christians.  Homes and churches have been bombed - believers have been beaten - all because born-again Jews and Gentile Christians are walking in obedience to Jesus Christ.  We are to be a blessing to Israel according to God's Word.  But the only true blessing we can give is the Gospel.  The ancestors of these people, the Pharisees, persecuted Jesus and the Apostles.  Today, this spirit of anti-Christ is still persecuting the Church.


"And Abram believed God"

Abraham believed.  That was all that was necessary to be found pleasing in the sight of His God and Creator, Jesus Christ.  Abraham was led by the Spirit to go to a place that God the Father would reveal to him.  Abraham obeyed the One who spoke, and the God who spoke proved Himself over and over again.  It is important for Christians to believe and obey following the example of our father Abraham.  In these times of undertainty, Faith in God is our greatest weapon against dispair.


"And My House shall be full"

There is a line from a famous old hymn, "There's room at the cross for you."  Not only is there room at the cross for every sinner to find reconciliation with God the Father through the Blood of His Son Jesus Christ, there is also room in the Father's House for every soul that has ever been conceived in the image of God.  After His resurrection, Jesus commisioned His Body, His Church to work the worldwide harvest so that His Father's House would indeed, be filled with "born-again, spirit filled" believers.  Salvation was made available to "whosoever" at the cross.  But we need to go and make the appeal - repent and believe - so that "whosoever" can turn from their sins and be saved.
