On The Word ... by Tim
Greenwood - For December 2006
in Mark 16:15-18 gave some powerful last minute instructions to you,
the church saying, "Go (you) into all the world and preach the good
news (the gospel) to all creation. Whoever believes (has faith) and is
baptized will be saved, but those that do not believe (lack faith) will
remain condemned. And these signs (supernatural manifestations,
miracles, signs and wonders) will accompany (follow) those who believe."
You Fulfilling The
Who? (Those that believe in Jesus! Those that have
faith! Believers! YOU!)
What are these signs?
In My name: They (you) will drive out demons.
In My name: They (you) will speak in new tongues.
In My name: No deadly thing will hurt them (you)
In My name: They (you) will place their (your)
hands on sick people, and they (the sick) will get well.
Matthew adds to this with a few more details in
Matthew 28:19-20 quoting Jesus saying, "Go YOU therefore, and teach all
nations (all creation), baptizing them in the name of the Father, and
of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. YOU go teach them to observe (keep
and continue to do) everything that I have commanded (instructed,
empowered, given) YOU (to do): and, know that, I am (right there) with
YOU (and them) always, even unto the end of the world. Amen."
Later, Paul writing to the church in Rome, in
Romans 10:14-15 asks, "How then shall they (all creation) call on him
(Jesus) in whom they have not believed? How shall they believe in him
of whom they have not heard? How shall they hear without a preacher?
And how shall they (the preachers) preach, except they are sent (by
It is written, "How beautiful (timely) are the
feet (foot-falls) of them that preach (bring, declare and demonstrate)
the gospel (good news) of peace (wholeness, nothing missing, nothing
broken), and bring (preach, declare and demonstrate) glad tidings
(gospel, good news) of good things!" Just at the right time, when
people need to hear the Word of God, they hear the footsteps of one
sent to teach them.
We are told exactly what to do. But how do we do
it? How can we as members of the body of Christ, with jobs and families
"Go" and take this most precious gospel message and effectively
communicate it to the world, which needs it so desperately?
I am letting you know that we here at TGM (Tim
Greenwood Ministries) are ready, willing and able to take this good
news to this world through every means and media that makes itself
available to us! And we are making disciples everywhere we go and
This has been our most fruitful year in ministry
so far. In 2006 with God's help and the financial support of
wonderful Christians like you, we were able personally minister to 3500
different people, we were able to minister to 6000 more, world wide,
through my book "Walking in Faith," unknown thousands more through
television and radio interviews and we were able to minister to over
175,000 more individuals through the anointed articles and other
powerful resources on the TGM web site.
Many people's lives were changed this year, many
received healing, many recieved deliverance and many made Jesus their
Lord this. Yet we know that we have just barely scratched the
surface of what God has called us to do. Our God given vision is to
save the lost, equip the saved, edify (build up) the equipped, deliver
the oppressed, teach faith and agape’ love, provide ongoing instruction
for the renewal of the mind, training for leadership and healing for
the sick. In short, to diminish the darkness of this world by lifting
up the marvelous light of Jesus Christ! Not only is that a mouth full,
but also it is far more (in the natural) than Marcia and I can do
alone. But then we are not supposed to be doing it alone.
If you were going to go yourself, you would have to provide for
transportation (air fare, car rental, fuel), food, housing (hotel),
etc. (What would it cost you to just go to another state for one day?
How much for a week?) We have these same expenses every week, plus we
have to keep the ministry running while we are gone!
||You, as part of the body of Christ, have
been instructed by Jesus Himself (through Mark, Matthew and Paul) to
either "Go" yourself and preach the gospel or SEND preachers like us to
Therefore, we are depending on God to move YOU a
believer in the body of Christ to SEND (make financial provision to
send) us, Tim Greenwood Ministries, Tim and Marcia, to effectively
preach the gospel as Jesus instructed to all creation (the nations, the
We are dedicated; desirous and driven to not only
fulfill that Great Commission but to effectively do so through the
vision that God has given for Tim Greenwood Ministries. We are simply
asking you, at this year-end of 2006 to pray about joining hands with
us by becoming a partner in 2007. We understand that God provides
different people to partner with different ministries – so we ask you
to ask God where He wants to use you.
We have the vision and now believe by faith that
God, through YOU as a believer will make provision for that vision. We
believe that YOU as a believer are vital to the success of every thing
we accomplish for our Lord. Not only that, but the Word says that if
you send us, then you will receive the same reward that we receive from
God for taking the gospel to the world! At Tim Greenwood Ministries,
our pledge to you is that we will do our very best to be good stewards
of the valuable resources you entrust to us (1 Timothy 6:20.)
In addition to financial provision, God said that
He would provide physical, technical and creative help for this
ministry. So, we would like to hear from you spirit filled believers,
especially those in the Los Angeles/Arcadia area. Please write or email
us briefly stating how you might be of help to Tim Greenwood
Ministries. Make sure to include your name, address, phone and email
address so that we can get back to you.
We are ready to press ahead and we are simply
asking you press ahead with us. We are so thankful for those
individuals and churches that already partner with TGM. It is because
of your faithful prayers and financial partnership this ministry has
accomplished all that it has thus far and we give thanks to God for you!
Have a wonderful Christmas season with your family
and friends! We pray for God to pour out His blessings to overflow in
your lives in the New Year 2007! TGM
