My Apology to God and the Body of Christ
Posted November 1, 2007
My television and radio ministry went national and international in February 1992. By the first week in December, there was such an attack against me that my spirit was overwhelmed. I found myself living in Psalm 142 verses 3-6.
Psalm 142:3-6 says, "When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path. In the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me. v.3
I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul. v.4
I cried unto thee, O Lord: I said, Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living. v.5
Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I." v.6
As the years progressed, I found myself with much greater persecution and could tell that my soul was being put in prison. Verse 7 says, "Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountifully with me." Over the past three and a half years, persecutions grew greater and greater and my soul was more afflicted. My persecutors were stronger than me, but I continued to fight with my faith and the gospel I walk in.
Over these past years, I used some language on television that I considered very unsatisfactory to me. I sought the Lord and asked him, "Why is this language appearing?" He told me because of frustration. God never condemned me, but told me to continue obeying him as I have. I am overcoming these attacks. I am getting stronger and stronger, and my soul is coming out of prison. I have most certainly asked God, and I want to ask the body of Christ to forgive me for any words that I have spoken that have been offensive to them.
God bless you,
