Go forward!

“The Lord shall fight for you.” (Exodus 14:14) With God victory is never in doubt. But we must be on the move. In the Lord’s army, there is no standing still. Our Captain’s command is, “Go forward.” (Exodus 14:15) This is our direction. “Go forward” in the Lord’s way, in the Lord’s work, in the Lord’s kingdom. — Daily Remembrancer November 7th Morning

In March 1978, after nearly one year in Singapore, the Lord called my wife and I to ‘go forward.’  Teaming up with another young married couple, we went to the island of Borneo.

Years before (in 1974) God had spoken to me through what I thought was a vision and He had said to me that I would one day go to those islands in the north of Australia, for Him, which I believed at that time to be Indonesia. Well, at this time, we were headed there. Borneo comprises three countries; Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei.

“Be thou faithful unto death.”

The Lord calls his followers to be faithful unto death, to we die in His service, proclaiming and defending  the gospel.  How can we if we are so weak? But our God is faithful and He does it through us. All the glory to God!

I often get up in front of large audiences to speak on Creation/evolution issues, or on biblical creation and the origin of the universe, or on faults with atheistic or even theistic big bang thinking. I have been doing that in one form or another for 40 years now. But nearly every time before I get up to speak I am attacked by some spiritual forces trying to stop me doing it. Sometime this comes through my bodily weaknesses, and I feel sick, nauseated and sometimes even have had attacks like feeling feverish.
