A Fireside Chat


I remember well during World War II, in the evening after supper, gathering around the radio to listen to what our President, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, would say in what he called a “Fireside Chat.”

He spoke with the comforting strength of a great leader as he told us of the recent activities of the worldwide war on several fronts.  We looked forward to these Fire Side Chats to encourage and inspire us to do our part to assist our armed forces to win the horrible war against tyranny.

The old Fireside Chat talks came to my mind as I began writing this note to the thousands of readers of the OpenHeaven.com Digest.  It has been a different week than usual this week.  I was led to invest my limited time and stamina in considering the redesign of the OpenHeaven.com website.

I say limited because I often fall asleep while working from my recliner with my laptop, especially after I have been up late or ate a good meal.

It is my opinion that God allowed the internet for this time to get the fresh word of the kingdom out to the world.  The OpenHeaven.com website and the weekly emails along with the printed books in the past have been a part of a very effective kingdom seed scattering plan of God.  Now there are many others proclaiming and demonstrating the gospel of the kingdom across the world.

I feel so very blessed to have some part in bringing in this new era of loving intimate relationship with God changing lives and eventually the world to the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.

From the early years beginning in the 80’s of scattering kingdom seed when much of it fell on hard ground packed hard by the heavy footsteps of men, and some fell among the rocks of strong religious traditions that were void of the word of the kingdom reality in this life, and some among people too entangled to the cares of this life to consider the Spirit and the kingdom in their lives. But some fell on good ground like you and is multiplying across the land.

It has been and is so wonderful to see multitudes receiving and growing in the reality of the relational Kingdom with God in the Holy Spirit.  The seed is multiplying just as God told me that it would, like grass in a field covering the earth.

The strong works of vile darkness arising now are directly in response to the kingdom coming forth.  The devil and all that follow him are in great fear of the coming kingdom and are going all out in a futile attempt to destroy the name of Jesus and His Kingdom from the earth.  Praise God!  We win!

I truly thank God for all of you that are a part of the move of God’s Kingdom coming forth on earth.  If the LORD brings it to you mind, please pray for us and for a company called Pronets that is doing the technical work on the new website.

If this note has some errors in it please forgive me.  I don’t have time to send it to be proofed as I usually do.

Much love and Blessings,

Be made whole in His love,
