August 2021 Newsletter
Dear OFRH family,
Throughout August the Old Fashioned Revival Hour continues in its journey, “mining” the treasure-packed chapter 6 of Ephesians. I cannot think of any truths more timely for all of us than those which are waiting to be “dug out” of this chapter. Dr. Fuller has been teaching us about our enemy, “the prince of the power of the air (Satan), the spirit who is now at work in the disobedient, the rebellious, the unbelieving, who fight against the purposes of God” (Ephesians 2:2 Amplified version).
Last month, from Ephesians 6:10, we learned something about spiritual warfare – what it is and how God’s children must engage in it. How can we be prepared? Note that Ephesians 6:12 makes it clear that our struggle is not against flesh and blood which may be deceived by the enemy, but it is against the powers of the enemy himself. Spiritual warfare requires the armor of God. Here is where the Old Fashioned Revival Hour will linger for the next eight broadcasts. Our own armor is wholly inadequate. During each of those broadcasts, Dr. Fuller will highlight a different but essential piece of the armor that God provides for us to wear and use successfully as we confront fear, doubt, disease, misunderstanding, confusion, and even panic.
May your assurance, adequacy, peace, joy, service and love to others be an unmistakable mirror of who Jesus truly is and all He offers to a very needy and sorely perplexed world, one encounter at a time. Only He can do this as we put on that armor – as our conduct and words (tongues) display His truth, righteousness, peace, faith, salvation, and Spirit-directed Word.
This month collectively we may have 1000 opportunities to do that. Therefore, we are pleased to feature “O For A Thousand Tongues….” This CD contains 16 wonderful hymns by the OFRH chorus choir. Perhaps it will help keep the truth singing in your heart throughout each day. The CD may be purchased for just $16.50 which includes shipping. (If you live in California, it’s $18.00 due to sales tax.)
Recently we received a letter I’d like to share. It’s from a 56-year-old prisoner in the state of Washington. He said he hadn’t heard of our ministry until he was incarcerated and that “the preaching, the music, the letters and the atmosphere of the broadcasts take me right back in time…. I was drawn to the older hymns of the faith. So I really enjoy the choir, quartet, and the congregational singing.”
So thankful to invest in this gospel ministry with you,
Michael Khanchalian, D.D.S.
