Sept. 13, 2001

As many of us are today, I am still in shock over the events of September 11, 2001 in New York City, Washington, DC and Pennsylvania. As you know we must continue to pray for the survivors and families who have suffered such loss. Likewise, we must intercede for our nation, our leaders and our American freedoms that God will lead, guide and preserve.

My first inclination was to stop the printing of the enclosed letter. My concern was that anyone might somehow perceive that I had written this letter after the terrorist attacks. In fact, this letter was completed several days before this great tragedy and posted on our Internet web site on September 6th. The video that is now titled "The Rise, Fall and REDEMPTION of America" was recorded nearly a month before.

The relevance of this newsletter and the message of the videotape is now even more important than ever before. The video is the result of months of prayer and work and holds the very key for our much-needed national revival. It’s inspirational and powerful information stand nearly prophetic in the light of these current events.

As I have presented the "America" seminar in churches across our country I have reiterated continually that the hand of God has slowly lifted off of our nation leaving us exposed and vulnerable. When nations turn their back on God their fate is clear. Psalm 9:17 says: "The wicked return to the grave, all the nations that forget God."

But God’s answer for our present situation is clear as well. "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." (II Chron. 7:14)
