“A NEW SONG”
April 2015 

Dear fellow worker of the Christian Worship Hour:

Over 3,000 years ago, a godly man named Job, declared:

“I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end He will stand upon the earth. And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God. I myself will see Him with my own eyes---I, and not another. How my heart yearns within me! Job 19:25-27

  • Job said, “I KNOW”
    There were a lot of things Job did not know. He did not know why he had lost all of his children, possessions, servants, and was on an ash pile about to die! Yet he declares, “I KNOW”. If we have lived any time at all we will encounter hard things we do not understand that makes no sense. Yet we can say with Job, “I KNOW”. Romans 8:28
  • Job said, “I KNOW I HAVE A REDEEMER”
    Job knew that someone would come to redeem him from his sins. Job knew that it would all happen in God’s time. Today we live with a full knowledge of the Redeemer because we live after the cross. It is the joy of our life to know the Redeemer personally. Phil. 1:21
  • Job said, “I KNOW MY REDEEMER LIVES”
    We don’t go to the cemetery to worship our Redeemer! Yes, He was once in the cemetery for three days and three nights, but that was the end of it! He is alive and lives in our hearts by His Spirit. Praise God! Col. 1:27
  • Job said, “I KNOW MY REDEEMER SHALL COME”
    “He shall stand at last on the earth”. Job just knew in his heart and soul that his Redeemer would come to redeem him! Jesus came in the fullness of time, shed His blood on the cross, was dead, and raised the third day! We thank and praise Him for that. I Thess. 4:13-18
  • Job said, “I KNOW I SHALL LIVE AGAIN”.
    When Job uttered these words he thought he was dying. But Job knew, no matter what, he would live again. How did he know that? God revealed it to his heart. Jesus has promised us, we will live again! We have the same confidence Job had. John 11: 25, 26
  • Job said, “I KNOW I SHALL SEE GOD”
    That is what he wanted more than anything else, and that is what we all want more than anything else---to see God personally. So many of our loved ones have looked upon the Savior, have touched Him. I can hardly wait. I Cor. 13:12
  • Job said, “I KNOW I SHALL BE SATISFIED”
    “How my heart yearns within me!” In other words, that longing in my soul will be satisfied when I am safe at home with Jesus. That deep desire we have had all our life will be satisfied when we see Him, face to face! I John 3:2

I often wonder how many viewers we have who do not know Jesus! How much they miss in this life, and in the life to come! Open your heart Jesus now! John 5: 24, Romans 10:13

Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ. By faith alone we have joined a national network, ION-TV with over 101 million households nationally. We are counting on you to help us carry the glorious Gospel all over the world. Our budget this year exceeds $3.1 million dollars. We are not under written by any denomination, corporation or institution. We are totally dependent on God’s people to give as God leads. If this service is of the Lord, we will have no problem, if it is not of the Lord, the sooner we close the better! Please pray and give as God directs.

God bless you, everyone.

In our Savior’s love,



Harold E. Salem, pastor

Thank You for Writing...

I listen to the Christian Worship Hour every Sunday. It is my church. I live in a nursing home in Storm Lake, Iowa. Next June 1st, I will be 100 years old. You said you had an interesting CD that I could write and ask you for. We’ll play it here at the nursing home for devotion and we will all enjoy it. It’s hard to write at this age. I was 8 when you were born. Sincerely,

STORM LAKE, IOWA

You read the letters and spoke how God can use illness to bring you closer to Him. That is what happened with me. Though I accepted Christ as my Savior when I was young, I sure weren’t livin that way. After my head injuries (brain injuries), I had severe seizures constantly and frequent strokes. I asked God why and He said so I would get to know Him. Praise God. Old cowboy.

EVANSVILLE, WYOMING

It’s a blessing and beautiful hearing from you and concern about us in Kenya. We really appreciate your prayers and heart to us. Please allow to say big thank you for willing to help us with resource and materials to assist us in Bible studies for homes and also special CD and DVD for pastors. Actually this will be of great help to our churches in East Africa where reaching out to equip and train. We thank God for divine connection and bring us together to accomplish God’s will and purpose on this year.

KENYA, AFRICA

I want you to know how much your sermons mean to me. I am a born again Christian, but I suffer on a daily basis with severe depression(despair). Please pray for me! In Christian love.

YANKTON, SOUTH DAKOTA

Thank you for the DVDs you sent me. I play them over and over again. They help me through each day. Thanks again. God bless all of you. In His name.

ELGIN, ILLINOIS

I listened to your sermon on the internet today and was happy to hear the story of Joseph Scriven. One of my grandfather’s favorite hymns was “Hvilken venn vi har I Jesus” which you cited for us. I hear you joke about people falling asleep while listening to you, but I see a twinkle in your eye. If they are listening, they won’t fall asleep! Thank you again for your continued service for our Lord. May He continue to bless you and your staff. Your friend in Christ

ETNE, NORWAY

I am a widow and no longer drive. My husband led me to the Lord. Your sermons are a blessing. The message is direct and easy to understand. God bless you and your staff. In Jesus’ love.

FREMONT, NEBRASKA

I often pray that you and the board will be filled with vision and enthusiasm and be renewed with freshness and not be tempted to give up. You folks cannot grow weary! You just can’t let Satan extinguish your zest and fire. Nobody else is doing what you folks are doing. These are the last days and we have to finish well. God will help you to do whatever He asks you to do.

INDIAN HEAD PARK, ILLINOIS

My name is Ivan. I watched your TV program today and concluded that we are on the same page on our understanding of the Christian life. This check is to be used in whatever area you choose and feel it will do the most good. My wish and prayer is that you keep on keeping on in your good work. In Christ who is the Father.

LARNACA, CYPRUS

Thank you for the good church service and all the old songs being sung by your singers. I have to depend on your closed caption as I am deaf. I am 84 years old.
