Let’s Finish the Task!
In the Face of the World’s Fear and Chaos, God is Shining His Eternal Light Among the Nations
and Inviting Us to Partner with Him
By James S. Eagles, President, Intercede International
What a time we are living in! We see the soon coming of our Lord and King as we see the nations in the grip of fear, war, rebellion, disaster, poverty and economic collapse. Everything our Lord Jesus spoke has and is coming to pass. But the one Sign that is the most significant is this: “and this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come” (Matthew 24:14 KJV).
To this end every one of us at Intercede International are pressing on with millions of other Christians and ministries around the world, to Finish the Task in our generation.
Jesus gave us the Great Commission, not as a suggestion, nor even as a request. No, He gave it to His Church as a Command! Let us therefore Go Into all the World and proclaim the Gospel! And the Gospel is Good News to a dying world. Indigenous missions having been raised up by God in their nations are joining with us to Finish the Task. The Canadian Churches are joining too, and are saying, how can we partner and help?
You and me as Christians are foremost on God’s heart, for we are His Children and He has given us this Treasure of His Salvation in earthly vessels that we might know how precious it is and also how weak and dependent we are on Him in order to proclaim His Word. That is why Satan is fighting against all Christian organizations and ministries right now. He wants to stop the Proclamation of the Good News and he wants to hinder those who are doing it. Nevertheless, the Lord said, “I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18 KJV). We have God’s word that His Work will never lack His Supply. Therefore we must wait on and trust in the Lord to confirm His Word with His provision. For 36 years now I have watched as the Lord has rescued and sustained this work and this ministry. Many of you reading this (and some who have now departed) have been instruments of His Grace in fulfilling His Word of Provision. May God bless each one who has received and fulfilled this role in His eternal kingdom.
Therefore whether it is the completion of a ministry building in some far-off land, or the feeding of hungry souls for the Word of God, or the care for the destitute and the dying or the simple but needful help for our operations, this ministry shall continue on by the GRACE OF GOD. And He shall supply all of our needs according to His riches in Glory. Amen!
This past year of 2017 has been a challenge in many ways for many of the ministries we partner with including our Home Operations, but God has spoken to many who have responded with their gracious help in a time of great need. Many of the brethren in many nations are shouting Hallelujah because of the provision the Lord has given because of your intercessory prayers and acts of help and support. We need not fear. The Lord is on His Throne, and we just want to be His humble servants doing the will of the Master. For this I pray and also ask all of you who read this entry to pray with us, that the Lord’s Abundant Rain will be poured out (in many ways) upon our ministry and upon the many other ministries in Canada and around the world that are advancing the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to all the nations on this earth.
“‘Surely I am coming quickly.’ Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!” (Rev. 22:20 NKJV).
