SUPPORT A.C.L AND DISTRIBUTION OF THE GOSPEL OF JOHN

As I have reported previously God has raised up this young man for His purposes in Australia at this time.

Martin Isles gives us a considered report on the results of the recent Australian election and the efforts of A.C.L volunteers that I believe demonstrates God’s hand was “on” their efforts. He also reminds us from Daniel 4:17 who ultimately rules the kingdoms of men “to the end that the living may know that the Most High rules the kingdom of men and gives it to whom he will and sets over it the lowliest of men.”

Even more important is what A.C.L is planning to do in the near future: distribution of at least two million Gospels of John. Make sure you get involved and support this effort.

Australia’s greatest need is not a change of government. Australia’s greatest need is a change of Lord. Australia needs the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

GOD IS RAISING UP HIS WARRIORS

One of those warriors in Australia is Martyn Isles of the Australian Christian Lobby (ACL). This recent email from him reports on his recent tour around Australia entitled The Truth of It.

Dear Ronald,

Looking back, I’m so thankful for how God directed The Truth of It LIVE tour so friends like you could attend – narrowly missing lockdowns, border closures, and other problems. More than that, I’m thankful for how many people said it was timely for them personally.

There’s a hunger for truth right now that is very significant.

It has been many years since large venues were filled night after night with people who wanted to hear biblical truth. 

But that’s what happened in Queensland, Western Australia, Tasmania, and South Australia this year, with more than 18,000 people attending meetings to lift up the name of Jesus!

The church is being stirred to action through events like The Truth of It LIVE that you’ve helped provide.

You’re helping to inspire Christians to be bolder in their public witness for Christ, to study their Bibles, pray for our nation, think deeply about the issues of our day, and speak up about the lies harming our nation.

And not just small numbers of Christians – thousands of them are finding their voices and bringing their influence to the public squares in Australia.

What is also worth noting is that you’re helping people become Christians through our efforts together to make the truth public. 

People write to me saying they’re emboldened to talk about God’s truth and, as they do, they’re leading people to Christ. Here’s an internal note that one of our staff members shared with our team…

“I was just on the phone with one of our supporters. She is a busy mum of five and lives in Victoria.

“Being a mum, she hasn’t had much chance to tune in to what is happening in the political sphere. She wanted to extend her gratitude because she said without ACL, she probably wouldn’t know what is happening.

“She said the content that comes from ACL affects her and her family greatly, causing them not only to be aware of what is happening in Australia, but it also stirs them up to be part of cultural change.

“She saw Martyn’s talk on Q&A and it affected her greatly. After watching this episode, one of her friends who is gay reached out to her in hope that she could shed some light and peace.

“He was in a place of confusion, brokenness, and said he was more lonely than ever before. He had given up on God, but after seeking some guidance from her, he started to question his whole life.

“She said it was because of watching Martyn on Q&A and The Truth of It videos that she knew how to approach the situation when he came to her. He has given his life back to God and come to a place of repentance!”

Amazing! I’ve had numerous people approach me at The Truth of It LIVE saying they watched my videos to hear the imagined ‘lies and hatred’ I was spreading – and then one thing led to another, and they became Christians.

Not only that, but a ministry that has a call-in line for people who have questions about God also told me that many callers say their first exposure to the Gospel was through The Truth of It videos.

Who would have thought that people would be started on their journey towards Christ through the hard truths discussed in those videos?

Testimonies like these reveal the true power of the Word of God. 

Even when people are hostile to Christianity and they hear confronting, uncomfortable, unpopular truth – the Lord can use it to transform their lives.

That’s why you and I should never be ashamed to talk publicly about what the Bible says.  

The fruit from The Truth of It LIVE tour this year has been remarkable, and now there are more communities that are hungry for truth – people we can reach together. 

Your support of this recent tour has also sent a powerful message to MPs, Senators, and Premiers, as they’ve now seen venues like Brisbane City Hall, Perth’s RAC Arena, Hobart’s Federation Concert Hall, and the Adelaide Convention Centre filled with Christians who want to engage in the public squares.

So today I’m asking for your help to take The Truth of It LIVE to more towns and cities next year.

Get behind and support the warriors like Martyn Isles that God is raising up in your nation, your town, your suburb. Use Martyn’s videos The Truth of it Live on YouTube to inspire and encourage others. If you would like to donate go to http://www.acl.org.au

WHAT THEY TEACH CHILDREN IN AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS

Self is glorified not God. Basically, your sin nature defines who you are and you are God. This is what they are about to teach children in government schools in Australia. For example: “gender identity is not based on your biological identity, it is how you feel inside and how you express your gender through clothing, behavior, and personal appearance. It’s a feeling that begins very early in life”.

I thought most people were up in arms about the “Safe Schools” curriculum that was introduced in the State of Victoria and I was delighted that the Federal Government decided to get involved and introduce an Australia wide curriculum that would ensure freedom of religion and not teach anything that is anti God.

The so called “Good Society” curriculum is the outcome of the government spending an inordinate amount in development costs. Listen to Martin Isles describe what it teaches. It is worse that Safe Schools which to me is inconceivable but after having watched Martin, I agree that what it teaches our children will make them believe God’s Word must be considered harmful and be banned.

I cannot believe how quickly this nation is turning away from God and I am shocked that this curriculum got past our Christian P.M. and his Jewish Deputy. The good news: this casting off of God and His values fits with Biblical end times prophecy. The much prophesied last seven years prior to Jesus return is fast approaching at which time Jesus said, ” Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.Luke 21:28

GREAT OUTCOME FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IN OZ

Israel Folau says he has been “vindicated” by Rugby Australia’s apology and says he is now “looking forward” to the federal government enacting legislation protecting the right to religious expression. 

In the video below posted to his website, Folau appeared with his wife Maria beside him and spoke of his reaction to the confidential settlement with Rugby Australia on Wednesday.

“We are extremely pleased with the settlement reached today,” he said.

“With today’s acknowledgement and apology by Rugby Australia we have been vindicated and can now move on with our lives to focus on our faith and our family.”

Australian Christian Lobby (ACL) played a significant role in the settlement and Martyn Isles in particular is proving to be God’s man for this time in leading ACL.

God has used Israel Folau and this incident with Rugby Australia to achieve two of His purposes.

The first to get Scott Morrison in place as the Prime Minister of Australia. The Folau incident occurred just prior to the election. It galvanised Christians and some non Christians to vote for the conservative party. The fact that Israel, possibly the best rugby player on the Australian team, could be sacked because he quoted Scripture on Facebook about God’s position on gay marriage, made many realise that it was wrong, and they could not support the opposition party that supported it.

The second is the vindication received today just before the government enacts legislation to protect the right to religious expression. It must influence the government to ensure others like Folau are not persecuted for their faith.

I hope this demonstrates to all Christians the importance of standing up publicly for Christ and His values regardless of the cost.

RAMIFICATIONS OF SAME SEX MARRIAGE

Listen to Martyn Iles do a great job of outlining the impact Same Sex Marriage (SSM) legislation will have on an individual’s freedom. How fortunate we are, to be able to see the outcome of SSM legislation particularly in the USA and Canada, before legislation is enacted here. Also, how blessed we are that God is raising up individuals of this calibre to represent Christians in Australia. We need to wholeheartedly support organisations such as ACL . You only have to read the vitriolic responses on the ACL website to realise ACL is doing a great job. Pray for them and support them financially if you are able.
