A FRONTLINE MINISTRY
ALL GLORY TO GOD OUR MAKER AND KING, WONDERFUL COUNSELOR, THE MIGHTY GOD, THE EVERLASTING FATHER, THE PRINCE OF PEACE, OUR LORD AND SAVIOR, JESUS THE CHRIST!
Scripture of my Salvation: No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other: or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Matthew 6:24
Scripture of my call to Preach: And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men. And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 1:17,16:15
My Life Verse: But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. The Acts of the Apostles 20:24
You know– God has made life pretty simple! Man has made it complicated and hard! Rick Warren has a little booklet he wrote in 2002 entitled “What on earth are we here for?” Good Question! Our one purpose in life is to glorify God by obeying Jesus. Jesus came to seek and to save that which was lost. As He left, He told us to go and do likewise. Whatever your occupation is, the outcome from it should be to carry out the Master’s Plan.
Some of us sow and reap. Psalm 126:5,6 Others encourage and pray. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-28 And some are blessed to support and send. Romans 10:14,15 All are necessary for the gospel to fill the earth. The question is: Are each of us fulfilling our role in the Master’s Plan?
I believe 2019 and 2020 to be Watershed Years. Two full years to go all out for God! Fulfill your destiny! God in you is able! As one of my dear praying friends says, “Stay clean and stay close!” Of course, he knows if he stays close, he will stay clean. We live in the world but are not of it. Galatians 6:14
The forces of darkness are all around us. They have always been here. God is able to hold them off. Our job is to believe and pray and walk. God is faithful to do his part. We must take back our schools before our very children and grandchildren turn against us. In the 17th century in France, King Henry IV had issued in 1598 the Edict of Nantes giving religious freedom to the Protestant Huguenots in Roman Catholic France. But by 1685 Henry’s own grandson, Louis XIV, revoked the Edict of Nantes and all Huguenot churches were destroyed or turned into Catholic churches. If you don’t tell your young children and grandchildren to follow Christ, the world will tell him not to!
In the fast-paced world we live in darkness can snuff out the light very quickly. Light dispels darkness, but the opposite can happen if we let our guard down. I am saying you and I must be more vigilant than ever before. Don’t get tired and sit down. This is the hour to stand strong in the Lord! He has called you and me forth to STAND. The devil’s time is short. I believe he is using the Progressives to bring in the One World Government and to rid the planet of Christ and Christianity, just be tolerant, coexist. Many Christians and so-called Christians are duped into playing along with his evil schemes. Do not be one of them! America is now in the category of being an unreached people group! Over 100 churches close their doors each week, forever! Every year another 2,700,000 church members fall into inactivity (I am not talking about the ones that fall asleep in the pews each week). Other countries are sending missionaries to us! America MUST have Revival!!! Fast and Pray as you never have before. Please!
I believe we have just a few years left to have the freedom to preach the gospel ANYWHERE! This is a call to prayer and to preach now! So many lives are at stake. So many souls are without God. Do we really care? Time will tell what our attitude and heart really is. I ask you out right—Have you led Someone to Christ this year? 2018. Anyone? You have a few days left to do it. There is Someone of your relatives – There is Someone on the block in which you live – There is Someone in your neighborhood or section of town – Someone on your road – Someone with whom you do business – Someone is waiting for you to tell them about Jesus and the love He bestows as He floods our hearts! Time is short. Do it today. The voice of the devil says, “Wait.” Don’t listen to him. Today is the day for their salvation. Trust the Lord and go! It could mean the difference between heaven and hell for that Someone!
Mardi Gras Street Witnessing has a new group for men ages 70 plus that may take it a little easier. I will try to lead this group. Brother Dennis Mohr of Call of Grace Ministries is coordinating all the rooms for everyone and handling the finances. DCEA will still provide many signs, Tracts and Bibles as In the past. Dates for MG are February 28-March 5, 2019. Costs are $175.00 per person for Thursday thru Sunday; $300.00 if you stay until Wednesday morning. Call Dennis Mohr at 618-694-8199 to reserve a space. Pray we see many people saved this year. Come with us. Step out in boldness if you have been fearful before. Everybody in New Orleans needs a witness! Easiest place in the world to share Jesus. No Joke!
Talking about witnessing, Christmas is a great season to tell of the love of Jesus. What an awesome time of the year! God’s blessings be upon you as you obey Him. I am enclosing a gospel tract for use at this time of year. I have ten thousand of these should you need more! Just ask. My prayer is that you may use this tract to lead Someone to Jesus. Thank you for all the prayers you have lifted up for us this year. And thank you for supporting this ministry of Gospel seed planting and harvesting and discipleship and teaching. You are special to the Lord and to us! Keep praying.
Merry Christmas to you all,
David and Sue Cobb
