One More Night With The Frogs

"You set the time," Moses, replied…"I will pray that you and your house be rid of the frogs... Then only the frogs in the Nile river shall remain. And Pharaoh said, ‘Tomorrow…" Exodus 8:9-10

TOMORROW? Read that verse again. TOMORROW!? How about right now! The plague of frogs had brought Pharaoh to his knees, he bargained with Moses to get rid of the frogs. Moses said, "You set the time" (NLT)...and Pharaoh said, "Tomorrow"

Why do we delay the blessings of God? Why do we choose to spend one more night with the frogs? Why don’t we say "Enough"…"I’m ready right now;"

In a day when "time" seems to be more important than anything I was wondering how long it takes to get right with God. How long does it take to be born again. We all have been allotted the same amount of time, 24 hours each day, 1440 minutes everyday. Yet, the excuse that is most offered for not getting something done is, "I just didn't have time," most often that is not correct. Perhaps more proper would be, "I just didn't use my time wisely."

How long does it take to be saved? It takes .003 of a second to pop a balloon. ... how long does it take to be saved???

How long is forever? That's how long salvation lasts. Eternity is forever. Let me answer that first. How long does salvation last? Jesus said, "Whosoever believed in Him would never perish." (John 3:16)

Many know the way and choose not to go. Pharaoh had his time and chose to stay with the frogs.

Here's how long eternity is. One of the slowest birds I've ever seen is the pelican. His 10' wings just seem to move in slow motion as he struggles into the air. Suppose he is to take each grain of sand from every desert in the world to the sun 1 grain at a time, then every grain from every beach in the world 1 grain at a time, then every drop of water from every river, stream, lake, sea, and ocean, 1 drop at a time. When he finishes all of that, 30 minutes of eternity has expired. Does that give you some inkling of how long it lasts?

The eternal life that God gives to believers through Jesus is for the same length a nonbeliever will spend eternally separated from God. Eternally separated!! Don't postpone salvation!!

OK, here's how long it takes to be saved. Got a stop watch? How long does it take to read the following? "God, I'm a sinner and I need You. I know I can't go to heaven as I am. I need to be saved. I believe Jesus died on the cross and shed His Blood for me. I believe He lives today and He loves me. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus, and save my soul. "

Did you time it? What was it, 8-10 seconds? That's not very long. What a sad, sad, discourse for our world. Don’t stay with the frogs.

Some just will never bring themselves to the point of praying that prayer. Many will spend forever, eternally separated from God, in a place called hell. Because they refuse to call on the Name of Jesus. There is no other name that brings salvation.

Actually, salvation does not even take 8-10 seconds, However long it takes you with your heart to reach out by faith and receive God's grace, is how long it takes.

Would you suppose "not having enough time" is a ridiculous excuse to offer God? Could it be that we just want one more night with the frogs...unwilling to repent and turn from sin?

A blue shark can swim 1 mile in 140 seconds. You can write a letter in 8-10 minutes, you can pray the prayer for salvation in 8-10 seconds. Why not write me a letter and tell me you prayed that prayer? It will take 3 days for it to reach me. Once it does, I'll be glad to pray for you, (it does not take very long) and I’ll spend 8-10 minutes to write you back. Or better still, send me an e-mail, they’re pretty quick.

Last month we had some exiting results in our prison services and Night of Ministry. In the service at Jacksboro more than 150 men made public professions of faith and virtually all of the 300 or so in attendance testified of receiving some deliverance. It was one of those services that you could virtually feel a "tangible" presence of the Lord.

We also had some blessing reports and I want to share a couple with you.

Don - I am forever grateful for deliverance. Ron Cummings helped me find spiritual freedom. I now have such a hunger for knowledge and there is clarity and purpose in my walk. I don't know if I can adequately express my deep gratitude. Don't ever stop what you are doing...Jerome R.

Hey Don - After my session on Wednesday I went thru the rest of the day very tired. I woke up Thursday to the greatest day of my life. I am free of several demons that I felt leave during the session. Some smaller ones left after the session. I am the world's greatest skeptic regarding such things, but now I am the biggest fan of deliverance!! I told all of my friends and my wife is sending in her request...Ronny W.

Dear Don - Thank you so much for the deliverance session you did with me 6 months ago. I am healed from migraines now! God Bless you and your ministry!Ryane M.

I also met with folks from the marketing department of CHARISMA HOUSE publishers and they told me some of their plans for distributing and marketing our book WHEN PIGS MOVE IN. The book will be in book stores starting March 3. I ask for your prayers concerning the impact this will likely have on our ministry. Our offerings have been about half of our needs for the past two months. Thank you for your prayers and support. Blessings.

Just for Jesus,
