November, 2010

Dear Prayer Partners,

Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 

Praise God that in every age there has been a remnant that will not bow the knee to that which is against Christ. Our dear friends, as the days draw nearer to the Lords return we must purpose in our heart and life not to yield to the godless age in which we live. So much is happening politically, morally, financially and religiously it is almost mind boggling to comprehend.

Politically our Australian Federal government is controlled by the socialist Labor Party which is in bed with the left wing Greens Party and a few Independents. The Greens leader, Senator Bob Brown has said publically that the top issues for his party are the legalization of euthanasia and same sex marriage.  Time will tell how quickly these goals of the ungodly are passed into law.  

Financially ever since we arrived here in Australia almost 32 years ago one could almost predict any item would cost double as compared with what it would back in the states. However, in 1983 when the Australian government floated the Aussie dollar our purchasing power became better as the US dollar gained strength against the Aussie dollar. Items purchased did not go down in price but our US dollar would purchase more Australian dollars therefore making it easier to cope with the higher prices. But now that has all changed. Recently on Yahoo News it said The Australian dollar...surged to an all time high of around 99.00 US cents, traders said, outstripping the record of 98.49 since it was allowed to float in December 1983.  We are pretty much back to where we were before 1983.

Religiously the news for the past month has centred on Australias first Roman Catholic saint, Mary MacKillop. The popularity of this act of Popery seems odd in such a secular society as Australia. Even the New South Wales state government sent a political representative to the Vatican paid for of course by the taxpayer. Our local paper said The sainthood of Mary MacKillop has been celebrated and praised around the world and across Australia since Pope Benedict proclaimed Mary MacKillop to be a saint in the Vatican City... The local Roman Catholic organization held a mass in one of the largest athletic fields in the city giving a presentation telling the life of Saint Mary MacKillop...on a large screen... This mass drew a crowd estimated at 2500 to 3000. The local priest conducted most of the mass and one young girl from the local Roman Catholic school is quoted as saying My favourite part was when God held the cup out. This is truly Popery alive and well in Australian society.     

Morally things will only get worse as the years pass for as Paul wrote ...evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse 2 Timothy 3:13. Back in1995 the New South Wales state government decriminalized brothels. It was in 1996 that David attended a Dubbo city council meeting along with others to protest another brothel opening here in Dubbo. The brothel was given approval as was a sex shop a few years later. The proliferation of brothels in Dubbo and around the state has been on the increase since.  The increase in these houses of ill repute has caused one city council to legally deny the supply of power and water to brothels deemed to be operating illegally. This council is asking other councils in the state to follow suit but so far our council has refused to follow. But again ...evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse 2 Timothy 3:13.

Prophetically are we living in the days just prior to that shout in the air? Are we living in a day when there is less and less spiritual awareness by the unsaved but also by many of those who profess to be saved? Recently during a discussion with an unsaved man David is acquainted with, David quoted Mark 8:36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? That verse speaks volumes but this unsaved friend was seemingly unaffected not comprehending that someday all he has acquired here on this earth will be of no value when he stands before the Lord.  His soul will be lost for eternity and he will have forfeited eternal life for the Lake of Fire. On the other hand our four year old grandson, Caleb, asked a question about what it meant to be made whole after singing the Stop song in Sunday school. That song goes like this:

Stop; and let me tell you, what the Lord has done for me.

Stop, and let me tell you, what the Lord has done for me. 

He forgave my sin and He saved my soul,

He cleansed my heart and He made me whole.

Stop, and let me tell you, what the Lord has done for me.

 What a question and from a four year old! David took the time to answer that question for Caleb but what a notable contrast there is between Davids unsaved friend and our unsaved four year old grandson when it comes to spiritual matters. Undoubtedly their backgrounds are different. While one is seemingly unconcerned with their souls standing before God the other in simple child-likeness is open and questioning. How that simple question quickened us to the reality that this young person is listening and open. Oh, may we ever be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh.     

Thank you so much for your financial support which allows us to live and serve here and may the Lord richly bless you for it. Please continue to pray for us as we seek to reach the lost via radio, personal witness and preaching.  

 To God be the Glory,

David and Pam Bennett
