Eighty-Seven Years and Counting!

87 years ago this month, on September 28, 1934, the first small issue of the Sword of the Lord was hand-delivered on the streets of Oak Cliff in Dallas, Texas. The years that have followed have been an amazing and greatly blessed adventure.

The Lord has been so good to us. He has given us wonderful friends all around the world. He has also blessed us with many opportunities of influence and ministry. The pastors and other Christian workers who count on the Sword of the Lord are located far and near across the entire globe. The souls that have been saved directly and indirectly because of the Sword of the Lord are multi­tudes in number.

And on this eighty-seventh anniversary, we are still excited! Still dreaming the dream! Still laboring daily! Still thrilled in the Lord! Still going after the lost! Still praying for revival! Still standing for the truth! Still tackling the issues! Still so amazed that the Lord would allow us to do what we do each day.

Even after all these years we feel that we have just barely begun because there is so much that needs to be done. Very candidly, I believe, and others say to me, that the Sword of the Lord is needed more today than ever before. In our currently crazy world I have no doubt that is true.

So let’s press on! Let’s make year 88 the best year yet! Let’s keep sounding the trumpet until we hear the sounds from Heaven announcing our Lord’s return. Amen!
