April 2023 Newsletter
Beloved partner in this ministry,
This letter is being written the week just prior to Easter, that pivotal week in God’s calendar when, in the first century, the Passover Lamb offered Himself to take away the sin of the world. His sacrifice, of course, made your salvation and my salvation possible. Awhile back in my devotions I was particularly struck by this truth from chapter 12 of the prophecy of Isaiah. It is worth taking time to soak in the entire chapter (all 6 verses). The Israelites who are scattered among the nations will one day praise their Lord in a glorious song of thanksgiving when they return home to their land during the Millennium.
My dear believer, since you are in Christ, you are already home in Him and can sing Isaiah’s hymn of praise: “Your anger is turned away, and You comfort me. Behold, God is my salvation. I will trust and not be afraid; for the Lord God is my strength and song…. Therefore you will joyously draw water from the springs of salvation.”
It is our desire that the Lord use the Old Fashioned Revival Hour as refreshing water for your soul. Therefore, let me ask: How are you as I write this? We long to lift up in prayer our precious listeners who may be struggling. We’re also eager to rejoice with you over answered prayer. So do let us hear from you.
And if you’ve been listening to our broadcasts each week, you may recall Dr. Fuller’s conversation recently with one of the members of the OFRH quartet, Bill MacDougall. Whether or not you heard that interview, I think you might enjoy some of Bill’s solo numbers that you’ll find on this month’s featured CD. The title of the CD is “Walk In Jerusalem” and it has 15 wonderful songs. You may order the CD for only $16.50 (shipping included). However, Californians need to add $1.50 for tax.
Following Dr. Fuller’s powerful message for Easter Sunday, “The Resurrection and the Believer,” he will begin a lengthy series on the Apostle Peter’s first letter. His final message in April is entitled “An Inheritance Incorruptible.” So, dear friend, despite the problems we may face now, the grace that the Lord lavishes upon us here cannot be compared with what we have to look forward to when we see Him. How glorious that will be!
Rejoicing as a joint heir with Him,
Michael Khanchalian, D.D.S.
