Goodbye 2020 Goodbye

Goodbye 2020 Goodbye

Can I get an Amen ! I would venture to say there are several who would offer up a resounding cheer to see this year go. Covid-19 confided to our homes with family concerned for our safety to say the least and even fearful to venture outside at times. The introduction to an entire society for the first time the forced wearing of masks in order not to spread or be spread upon a virus that might kill you or perhaps someone you know, Church’s for the first time being forced to close by government mandates yet auto parts stores are allowed to be opened. Go figure huh ….

An election that is still reeling with rumors of wide base fraud. A government that seems to be out of control on so many fronts that for the first time red blooded Americans question their own resolve about being American. Riots in the streets of many major city’s in America. Our very history of America in question and benchmarks we grew up with torn, down for what seems to be little or no provocation.

Are you discouraged yet ? I would be if this is all the future I had to hold on to. Our lives today, right now and our future are not determined by CNN, ABC or Fox news. Not by Democrats, Republicans or independent’s. Not by Congress, the Senate or the Surgeon General. The Word of God clearly states:

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths” (Proverbs 3:5, 6).

Now either we believe everything the “Word of God” States or we should believe nothing. We have never been given the option to pick and choose want to wish to hold as divine truth and dismiss what we feel as non applicable to our lives.

We have a future and it’s not here. Were living in the last days, more accurately the last of the last days. For the first time since I can remember being in church more and more of this mind set is being expressed not by radicals standing on a wood box on a street corner but by trusted and respected men of God.

2020 has been a tough year no doubt. Love ones have gone on, but God is in Control! Some are battling Covid-19 right now; fearful of their future but God is in Control! Some have walked away from church unable to handle the challenges 2020 has brought but God is in Control! However on the other hand, Bible studies are still being taught, maybe via Skype or face time but the Bible is being taught, souls are getting the Holy Ghost and the sick are being healed. Yes God is still in Control.

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. (Psalms 121: 1,2)

I am sanctified proud of the Azusa StreetRiders ministry. We have taken everything this world could throw and yet held our resolve, praying, fasting, teaching, anointing in prayer, supporting each other as best we could and gathering our selves together when we could to minister to souls and to this ministry.

2020 is at our doorstep, in fact writing this article we only have a few more hours. Let’s put behind us the past, I want this ministry to hit the ground running in 2021 starting with Bind the Strong Man. I hope and pray we all in our own and as best we can be a part of this event on March 6th. If you choose not to travel for whatever reason, I understand I only ask you please to set time aside and examine and prepare yourselves for what the Lord has in store for us this coming year.

Time is short folks, there are souls to be saved and it is our only mandate to spread the Word of the Lord. Let’s give Jesus the best we can in 2021 we all know he gave us his best when he hung on a tree for you and me. So stay the Course, Keep the faith; God is Still in Control!

Motorcycle for Missionary Funds Hard At Work

If you can remember the Azusa StreetRiders raised $7,500.00 in out Missionary service Thursday night for Brother Scotty Grihm at our Annual Conference in Nashville, IN. I feel this is a great example of how Jesus takes the little that we give and multiplies it for his kingdom.
Here is an update from the field:

We bought it new for $1,175 and gave him n additional $100.The third bike we purchased went to Pastor Abraham our Regional Leader of the Kaikaluru region of Southern India.

Pastor Abraham coordinates all our conferences and events. He hosts our weekly online Bible School class in Kaikaluru, and he is a great support and encouragement to all our Pastors there. He has converted many trinitarian Pastors there who are now with us.


This 250 cc is a 2019 in like new condition, and we were able to get it for $1,150.


We also bought 2 motorcycles for East Africa that we gave out last in Kenya. (The last one was given at our monthly Pastors meeting today!)
These motorcycles are brand new 100cc TVC’. This is a very popular brand in Kenya.
The first one went to Bishop Rajab Watita. He was a muslim imam. I baptised him last fall. He is our Bishop in the Bungoma region of Western Kenya. He is doing a great work and has baptized several Pastors in Jesus name. I am working very closely with him. He is holding weekly Ministers conferences
and the motorcycle will be a tremendous blessing to him!
The 5th motorcycle was gifted to our Regional Leader Pastor Robert Barasa. He Pastors in Funyula, Kenya. We were able to build a new Church there last year. I don’t have pics yet, but they sent me this video of the dedication and presentation of the bike to Pastor Barasa! Hope you enjoy it

This is what our Future Holds

I think we’re in good hands.

We have world changing students at Apostolic Christian Academy, Maryville, TN — Recently, in their Bible class they were asked to write an essay concerning idols in Paul’s day, compared to idols in 2020. Here is one response from an anointed young lady who lives a godly life:

“In the Bible days the people’s idols were shrines, golden images, and gods made out of stone. Today our idols could be our cell phones, tv shows, movies, music, sports, social media, or anything else we put before God. Sometimes we can get so caught up in the moment that we never think about the future. We can get so stirred up in worldly things that we never think about God.

God has called us to be a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, and peculiar people!

We can’t let the things of this world overtake our lives. We need to stop worrying about how many followers we have, why he or she doesn’t like me, how many likes I have, and why I can’t play sorts like they can; we need to focus on what God has in store for our life and how we can fulfill the calling he’s placed upon us.

An idol is like an unhealthy food or drink, if you are constantly eating and drinking unhealthy things you are not going to be a very healthy person. When we constantly have idols in our lives it will develop an unhealthy relationship with God. It’s okay to have social media (if you use it in a good way), play sports or watch tv but it does not need to be all we’re concerned about.

Our relationship with God is the most important thing in our life. The Bible says that this world is not our home, we are just passing through. We need to live a life pleasing and acceptable unto the Lord and heading in the right direction. With idols in our way we won’t make it; Our focus needs to be on the path set before us, which is heaven.”

2020 National Rally Offering for East Africa & India

It never fails to amaze me how much this membership loves to support Missionaries. In addition this is not determined by any organizational affiliation, ASR supports regardless, all they need to know is there is a need.

This year in our Thursday night Missionary service Bro Grimh preached from his heart and all of us were moved by his message. Bro Grimh didn’t ask for any special offering to be taken up on his behalf all he did was talk about his burden.

When presented with an opportunity to give during an unscheduled special offering the response was overwhelming and God moved on our hearts in that service, everyone stepped up to the plate and sacrificed. We were able to raise $7,200.00 for the work in East Africa.

I had a message from Bro Grimh just the other day who wasted no time getting those motorcycles into the field and in hands of pastors who were ready, willing and able to go out and spread the gospel, all they needed was the means to do so. I would like to share that massage from Bro Grimh:

1. Hey Bro Thompson. Were buying this bike for one of our Pastors in India. He’s Pastoring 4 Churches. It’s a 2018 Royale 350cc. Used but in great shape. They wanted $1450 for it but we talked them down to $1200. It goes for $2500

2. We have another 2018 same model we can get for the same price. Heres a pic of that one

3. Also getting prices from 2 more Bishops to get them each a bike! This is the pic Bishop Watita from Bungoma sent me. This is not a Boxer, it’s a TVS 100cc

4. He is at the shop in Bungoma now. We are buying 2 bikes

The mgr I’m working with. We have bought from him before. He gave us a good discount.

5. Just bought this one!

6. Just transferred the money to buy this one! These are sweet machines. Best motorcycles we have bought yet, and we got them for $1200 each.

7. Thank You for your Vision to see increase to the Kingdom of God! This is a Honda 125 cc. It is $1225 brand new off the showroom floor!

This is one of my Sons in the Gospel in India. He is our Bishop in Rajamundry area. He oversees several Churches there and hosts our weekly Bible School class online. Many new Pastors are coming to the Revelation of True Salvation under his Ministry. He is a very short man, but very well respected. I’m going to buy this motorcycle for him. He will be able to handle it very well!

This is our Bishop in the Rajamundry area. He’ll be getting the white Honda Together we are empowering some Very Good Men of God to Maximize their Effectiveness!!!

Thank you Bro Grimh for the opportunity to be a blessing to you and work you are so committed to.
