I Couldn’t Stop Crying


I just retrospected to the days when I led a team of youth’s to village’s for crusades.

To villages where cars cannot access, where we will have to trek for ten kilometers or more just to take the message of the CROSS and LOVE of God to unreached and unchurched people.

Our motivation was not “OFFERINGS” but SOULS to be won for the Kingdom.

In those days, we hired old time projectors as big as a generator, carried on our head’s till we arrived our destination.

We didn’t even know of offerings/ money.  We were supported by a very few persons who love the LORD and His work.

I was abused by some senior ministers at that time and I recall one called me that I had a “ZEAL WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE.”  I was oh, about 17 years.

Looking at where we are now, I see such a huge gulf.  The difference been so clear.

This generation does NOT love the LORD, but love to preach and their hidden desire is not to make the LORD known, but to exploit the lambs and sheep of the LORD.

I can’t just stop crying here, wishing that those days can COME BACK.  When we preached the whole gospel with the WHOLE OF OUR HEART’S expecting nothing in return.

I wonder if those days can ever come back.

Today most preachers are MONEY DRIVEN and will go any length to get it even to the selling of their soul’s and imploring underhanded methods.

I saw those days, I TOOK PART AND PARTICIPATED IN IT and all I can only wish for, is a restoration of such days again….
