Thank You! – To the willing!
Ralph & Delores Rhyne of God’s Final Call and Warning Inc want to first thank from the depth of our hearts everyone who has donated to God’s Ministry done through GFCW. And we want to especially thank the few who have been faithful and consistent in their prayers and support. GFCW presently ministers the Everlasting Gospel 24/7 to a potential audience of over ¼ of a million listeners through WGFW 88.7 in VA and WAOM 90.5 in Ohio. Praise God! Further, GFCW ministers the saving message to well over ½ million viewers several times weekly on 8 separate local TV stations in Virginia and North Carolina. God be thanked! Next GFCW produces weekly messages on the Internet via YouTube to a potential audience of untold and unknown millions on every continent on the face of the earth. The Messages can be viewed on YouTube on the orion7787 channel. Moreover, GFCW conducts a study/worship phone conference call every Friday at 9pm which involves callers from all corners of the USA. And last but not least, GFCW leads two separate small study worship groups (church plants), one in Yanceyville NC and the other in Chatham VA. GFCW is a small ministry yet it ministers to tens of thousands/millions of souls daily. And please understand that GFCW is not the Rhyne ministry, it is God’s ministry which means it is the ministry of ALL the People/Body/Church of God! The conversation between God and Abraham reflects the present situation of GFCW. “After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward. And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed” Genesis 15:1,3 There are times when the promises of the Lord seem to be long delayed, even when it comes to finances. Further, there are times when the people of God are doing His will, yet they are still in great need and suffer gross lack. At this point in time, after having asked God’s people for help so many times, GFCW feels like Ezra felt in regard to further asking for help. “For I was ashamed to require of the king a band of soldiers and horsemen to help us against the enemy in the way: because we had spoken unto the king, saying, The hand of our God is upon all them for good that seek him; but his power and his wrath is against all them that forsake him.” Ezra 8:22 The words of Ezra 1:1-6 relate to God’s Remnant people today, that as it was it the days of old so it is in this the end of time. It is time for all who are willing to rise up and build the work of God worldwide! “Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying, Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, The LORD God of heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he hath charged me to build him an house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and build the house of the LORD God of Israel, he is the God, which is in Jerusalem. And whosoever remaineth in any place where he sojourneth, let the men of his place help him with silver, and with gold, and with goods, and with beasts, beside the freewill offering for the house of God that is in Jerusalem. Then rose up the chief of the fathers of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests, and the Levites, with all them whose spirit God had raised, to go up to build the house of the LORD which is in Jerusalem. And all they that were about them strengthened their hands with vessels of silver, with gold, with goods, and with beasts, and with precious things, beside all that was willingly offered.” Are you one of the willing?
The State of GFCW!
In the recent past God used “Little” to keep GFCW going until this day! All of the above mentioned aspects of the ministry of GFCW are presently still functioning and reaching tens of thousands/millions of souls 24/7. Yet on every financial obligation GFCW is months behind in its payments because of the lack or absence funds. We understand that there is a global financial crisis, but in spite of this reality the sacrificing to reach and save the lost must still be lived by God’s Servants/Disciples. This is a problem that the Body of Christ can easily solve. Fulfilling the Great Commission must become the absolute priority of each member of the Body of Christ personally and individually. My wife and I have sacrificed ALL for the Kingdom of heaven sake, and so have many others. Remember, God’s Final Call and Warning is not the ministry of Ralph and Delores Rhyne as many think and have said. We are all a part of God’s Ministry, Work, Mission, Church, People, Elect, Chosen, Kingdom, Remnant, and Body. This is the way we all must learn to think and live. I repeat, God’s people being many are one, and we all have one mission which is God’s work of seeking and saving the lost! Please consider the following scriptures for they apply to us in this the ending of time. “In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the LORD’S house should be built. Then came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying, Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your ceiled houses, and this house lie waste? Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways. Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes. Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.” Haggi 1:1-7
The Feed Back and Response!
The usual feedback that GFCW receives from many/most well meaning church members is; if God is in this work and movement it cannot fail. Also GFCW is often told God will supply everything you need. And it is often further said, if GFCW is suffering great opposition and continual financial lack it is because it must be God’s will and maybe God is not in the work or movement. There may be some truth to these positions if taken and understood in proper context. However, the Bible reveals that often during the life and ministry of Jesus, and often during the ministry of His apostles after His ascension, great opposition and financial lack was often suffered. We must also understand that God has chosen to work in harmony with human choice, efforts, and sacrifice. Remember, only eight souls were saved during the flood in Noah’s day. Only two of the adult men who actually were delivered from Egypt entered the Promised Land. Was this God’s original, ultimate and perfect will? Could more have been saved? The Bible says in 2 Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance”. As the people of God we must choose to sacrifice! We must choose to give! We must choose to obey! We must choose to put the Kingdom of Heaven first! We must choose to fulfill the Great Commission! And remember, we also can be delivered from spiritual Egypt which is slavery to sin, selfishness, and Satan but ultimately chose to be lost in the wilderness of worldliness, selfishness, and the love of money, material things, and sin!
The Conclusion and Solution!
Jesus declares in Matthew 22:14 “For many are called, but few are chosen.” And Jesus further says in Matthew 7:13,14 “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” Why are only a few the chosen, and, why do only a few find Eternal life? Jesus says in John 3:3 “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” We must be changed on a level that only God can perform! And the fruit of that level of new birth and conversion is revealed in an absolute devotion to living and sacrificing for the Kingdom of God. NOTHING LESS! Jesus tells each one of us individually and personally in Luke 14:26,27,33 “If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple”. This is a high calling and a great cost to pay! It is called sacrifice. Jesus sacrificed all He was and all He had for us, and we must sacrifice all we are and all we have for Him!
