               However, when the Son of Man comes, will He
 find faith on the earth?
Luke 18:8b, NASB

January 2003

Dear friend of KHCS,

In this time of wars and rumors of wars and uncertainty about the future, allow me to make a prediction, based on Scripture, that may shock you:

There will be no worldwide nuclear war.  Ever!

There, I said it, and I’m glad.  Jesus Himself said that, before His return:
As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the son of man.  For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day that Noah entered the ark.  (NIV)

In other words, He did not say that He would return to a radioactive wasteland, but that it would be “business as usual!”

That doesn’t mean that somebody might not detonate a nuclear bomb somewhere or there would not be a conventional war.  But, there won’t be worldwide devastation or a “nuclear winter.” 

KHCS is a “non-prophet” ministry.  But I believe you can count on this.

One thing that concerns me is that, while America concentrates on a “war on terror,” we are being distracted from other potential enemies.  The “terrorists” that attract our attention may be unwitting surrogates for some other power.  China, for instance, is still intent on its own empire-building and is perfectly happy to have al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups take the brunt of America’s wrath. 

Russia also could be a threat in the future.  It is not well known that Russian military aircraft routinely penetrate American airspace, apparently on electronic intelligence-gathering missions.

Pakistan has recently entered into a reciprocal agreement with North Korea to share its nuclear weapons in exchange for the DPRK’s missiles.

And with the election of a Marxist, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, as the President of Brazil, there is concern that that nation will seek to become a nuclear power in the near future.

So, don’t think that the Islamic quest for world domination is the only issue America has to deal with.  In the short term, yes, countering Islamic jihad is our most difficult challenge.  But we have many enemies.  I pray that our President hasn’t forgotten this. 

Our responsibilities as Christians are to pray for our leaders, and for the people who are snared by the Satanically-inspired doctrines of Islam, Communism and other false religions.  And, as God provides the opportunity, to share Christ with these people who have been so badly deceived. 

We also share the responsibility to financially support our respective churches and other ministries that are helping to further Christ’s Great Commission.

I trust that you are supporting your local church.  That is your first priority.  After that, I hope that you will pray about your support for the non-commercial ministry of Joy 92-FM.  As we conclude ten years of broadcasting here in the Coachella Valley, we want to continue improving our programming and technical aspects of this ministry so that our service may be of more value to you.

Less than a third of the people who receive this letter are Ministry Partners.  I urge you to please pray about your support of KHCS in 2003    and give as the Lord directs.  If He tells you not to contribute at this time, that’s OK with me; I don’t want you to do something that is contrary to God’s will. But please pray.  And invite others to tune in to 91.7 FM.  I do want to thank you for all you do for this ministry.

In His joy!
