 --Rich Carmicheal

    Recently, a believer in Nigeria wrote, "My mother collected the June 2001 edition of Herald of His Coming from one of her friends and we all read it and like it because when we finished reading it, we felt there is a change in our lives. The reason why we write this letter is that we want you to send Herald of His Coming to us every month." We praise the Lord for this testimony and many similar ones that describe how the Lord is using Herald of His Coming to change lives!

    This ministry is based on the belief that the Lord wants to change lives and is able to change lives. He wants to change individuals, churches, cities and nations. He wants to pour out revival and He has promised to pour out revival upon those who turn to Him. As the Apostle Peter proclaims, "Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord…" (Acts 3:19). God desires to pour out spiritual life.

    We rejoice that the Lord has called Herald of His Coming to promote personal and corporate revival. We praise the Lord that His message through this ministry is impacting lives. As the Lord declares through Isaiah, "My Word…will not return to Me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it" (Isa. 55:11). In other words, lives will be changed!

    We also rejoice because of Herald friends who give financial support to this ministry so that others can receive these life-changing messages. We are blessed time and again because these friends give with such love and willingness. This must also certainly bless the Lord since He "loves a cheerful giver" (2 Cor. 9:7).

    Therefore, I want to take this opportunity to express appreciation to all of you who help this ministry publish and distribute the Lord’s messages. Others are receiving instruction, correction and encouragement in the Lord because of you. Your financial gifts are helping change lives. Praise the Lord!
