HERALD INTERNATIONAL (Printing In Over Twenty Languages)
"Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me,
bless His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all His benefits"(Psalm 103:1-2).
The Herald staff in the U.S. recently asked the Herald International editors in various countries to share some of the reasons they have for blessing the Lord. Here are some additional responses carried over from last month’s issue:
We bless the Lord with testimonies from readers of the Romanian Herald:
"I received this Vestitorul Venirii Lui from a friend and while reading the articles, I was very much touched. I would like to regularly receive this publication, if possible, as I find it spiritual and interesting. ...In the thick darkness of our world, a Christian publication that promotes moral values and teaching of the Gospel is more than welcome. I wish the entire Herald team from Romania and international many blessings from our Lord and progress in expanding God’s kingdom in our country."
– Arad, Romania
"I wish the entire Herald team good health, grace and peace from our Lord Jesus. I would like to thank you for the wonderful publication and for the wonderful articles written by great teachers of the Lord. I consider this publication a gift from God and a sacred blessing."
– Calarasi, Romania
We bless the Lord for working through the Spanish Herald, Heraldo de Su Venida, to shine the light of His Word into hearts around the world. We give glory to God for the following testimonies:
"I have received the Heraldo de Su Venida for more than twenty years. It has always come at the right time with the specific Word of God for my life, church and ministry. It came to my life the first time when I was a young man hungry for God. I was motivated to pray and seek God as never before. Hence arose a ministry, church and more than 500 baptisms in water. I am very grateful. Receive my warmest good wishes, and my deepest respect for the work that you do. We were encouraged to move forward. You have no idea the impact that the Heraldo makes in the lives of those who read. And remember that "the work in the Lord is not in vain."
"I share with you our joys and happiness and the satisfaction of each church and meeting center as we study God’s Word, having received again Heraldo de Su Venida, this important informational study of the sacred voice of God. Thank you for helping us to strengthen this faith in our Father. We thank you for helping us to understand more the Word of God. Thank you for providing us with the strong light to walk in the dark streets of this day. We have the blessing to hear and understand the Word of God."
Tamil Herald in India
"What shall I render unto the Lord for all His benefits toward me? I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord" (Psa. 116:12-13).
We give praises to our God for the following points:
By the grace of God the Tamil Herald of His Coming is being published from South India regularly for the glory of God from 1955.
We thank God for the previous editor Rev. S. Devadason who was running the ministry from 1955-1999.
We give thanks to God from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to serve in His glorious ministry.
We really thank God for the fantastic articles like, Who Weeps Anymore by Leonard Ravenhill and Over Which Cities Do You Weep? by Wesley Duewel.
By the grace of God and through the inspiration of Herald messages we prayed for world revival at Kanyakumari, the south end of India for the past 28 years. On the first Friday of this year, we had "Heart Cry for Revival" (one day of fasting and prayer) in Tuticorin, a harbor city near Kanyakumari. If God is willing, our next "Heart Cry for Revival 2013" will be in Palayamkottai.
"Oh that Thou wouldest rend the heavens, that Thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at Thy presence. As when the melting fire burneth, the fire causeth the waters to boil, to make Thy name known to Thine adversaries, that the nations may tremble at Thy presence" (Isa. 64:1-2).
We would like to continue to thank our good God for His mercy and faithfulness. Like Samuel, today we can say "EBENEZER," thus far the Lord has been our help. Had it not been the Lord who was on our side surely we would have been swallowed up. Praise be to our God who has helped us to where we are. Please help us as we shout for joy that the Shona Herald will be publishing the eighth edition very soon. Thank you so much to all our friends who have stood with us to this far. We continue to thank our God for raising you up at such a time as this. Our cry everyday is, "Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but to You be all the glory, power and praise. You are worthy." Today we celebrate saying, "For our God and His glory we will keep this gospel fire burning!" Selah.
