From me to you by Jimmy Swaggart
February 2021

Several weeks back, on a Saturday morning, I was watching our program, The Message of the Cross. Incidentally, 7 a.m. CST is the time The Message of the Cross comes on in our city, and it comes on at that same time seven a days a week. As I watched, it was a good program, but little did I realize what was about to happen.

When we did this particular program live, we were close to the end of our time, and I remember asking the control room, “Would it hurt if I went over some two minutes or more?” They told me it would be no problem, so I turned to the camera and told the people that I wanted to pray for sinners to be saved. In other words, I wanted to give an altar call, which I did.

There was no great moving of the Holy Spirit. You could sense the presence of God, but countless times I’ve had it to take place in a much stronger way. But all of a sudden, when I began to give the altar call, the presence of God filled that room. I sat there with tears rolling down my face as the presence of God became so strong, so mighty, so powerful.

The Word Of The Lord
And then the Lord spoke to my heart telling me that this which I was doing—the giving of the altar calls over television—was exactly what He wanted and desired. He also said, “I’m going to give you a harvest of souls like you have never known, seen, witnessed or experienced previously.” You must remember the word that I gave you concerning the harvest in Egypt which took place under Joseph. It was so large that Joseph had to build granaries all over Egypt. Actually, it was beyond counting. The Lord told me, “That is an example of what I am going to do spiritually.”

I need an army of intercessors, of people with faith to believe God that we may see that which He has promised. We cannot take it for granted. That’s the reason I need the intercessors and those full of faith. You must remember that last month I said that you were called of God, the same as I am called of God. You may never have thought of it in that fashion, but it definitely is true. That means that you have a great responsibility even as I have. Don’t forget that, and don’t throw it aside. Let me say it again: your call is the same as mine.

I thank you so very, very much, for what you have done in the past, and what you are doing at the present. By faith I will thank you for what will be done in the future. We live in times that are unlike the world has ever seen before. God is able. Irrespective of what we try to do, He is big enough for the task. Thank you for praying, thank you for fasting, and thank you for sharing the burden with me and those that you see in this ministry.

In the Master’s service, yours, Jimmy Swaggart
