THE CHRISTIAN WORSHIP HOUR Newsletter

“A NEW SONG”
October 2014 

Dear fellow worker of the Christian Worship Hour:

“IS THERE ANY GOOD NEWS FROM GOD?” Notice, I did not ask if there was any good news from man. Just watch the evening news, listen to the radio or read the newspaper and what do you find? Death, disease, disaster, hunger, starving, babies crying, elderly suffering! That’s the news I get from man. So, I ask you, is there any good news from God? You bet, and plenty of it! Let me list some of the good news items from God.

  • GOOD NEWS: GOD LOVES ME. That is REALLY good news because I was a poor, lost sinner, and, to make it worse, I was a downright enemy of God, and yet, even though I was an enemy and rebelled against God , He loved me! (Rom. 5:10). Talk about good news! I didn’t deserve anything but the wrath of God, but instead, He gave me love. And, oh, He didn’t just love a tiny bit, but a whole lot, so much that He gave His only begotten Son to die for me on a cruel, Roman cross. (John 3:16). You won’t read that in the evening newspaper that men publish.
  • GOOD NEWS: GOD WILL SAVE ME. Save me, from what? Stubbing my toe? No sir, HE will save me from hell! And you want to know something else, only God could to it! Did you ever stop to think what it would be like to be isolated in total darkness with weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth! (Matt 13:50). But the good news is that this wonderful God in heaven paid for my sins in full and I will never be lost! (John 10:28-29). You won’t read about that in the evening paper either.
  • GOOD NEWS: GOD WILL KEEP ME SAFE. I never have to worry because God has given me eternal life. Jesus said that if we believe in Him, accepting Him into our life, we “HAVE” eternal life. (John 5:24). You know what that means? It means that we have eternal life the moment we believe in Jesus---that we don’t wait until we get to heaven to get eternal life, we have eternal life within us right now! Don’t forget that ”HATH” that Jesus put into that verse.
  • GOOD NEWS: GOD WILL HELP ME. The Psalmist said that God was “a very present help in trouble.” (Ps 46:1). We all have troubles of one sort or another in this wilderness journey (John 16:33). But the good news from God is that he will never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5) and that he would always be with us, no matter what. (Matt. 28:20). I want to tell you a little secret, my dear friend; with Jesus with us we fear no man or condition! Satan can huff like the old wolf, but he can’t touch a hair on our head unless the dear Lord allows it! (Job 1:12). Try finding good news like that in the evening newspaper!
  • GOOD NEWS: GOD WILL WATCH OVER ME: He knows the way that I take in this life. (Ps 139: 2, 3). I do not know what will happen tomorrow---come to think about it, I don’t know what will happen in the next ten seconds! But listen to this, God knows all of my tomorrows! He is never surprised at the turn of events---never surprised because He knows my pathway all through life. He has a plan for each of His children, so we just trust Him and rejoice each day. Next time you feel lonely, or misunderstood, or unloved; just remember the heavenly Father is watching over you with an eye that never sleeps. (Ps 121:4).
  • GOOD NEWS: GOD WILL TAKE ME HOME SOMEDAY. Jesus told his disciples, just before his ascension, that he was going away to heaven, but, He also said, “I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” (John 14:3). How does that make you feel? It thrills my soul! It is good news! I’m going home someday. Jesus has my departure date set! So, take heart. Use your newspaper for garbage---use the good news of the gospel for rejoicing and giving praise to God!

And don’t forget. We need your prayers, and we need your gifts. We have no other source of income. So, talk to God about it and we’ll carry on as long as you pay the bills.

In our Savior’s love,



Harold E. Salem, pastor

Thank You for Writing...

“Love your faith and sermons! I’m a 60 year cowboy, been disabled for 20 years. Been praying to God for Him to heal my body so I’m not in pain 24/7! I am on SSI/Disability. Praise God and bless me! Amen!”

WOLSEY, SOUTH DAKOTA

“I have accepted Jesus years ago—but with all that is happening lately I almost feel He has forgotten me. Please pray for me as I really am doubtful anymore.”

OMAHA, NEBRASKA

“The Holy Spirit guided me to your TV program, Christian Worship Hour about 10 years ago. The reason is that you preach the true word of Jesus Christ. Thank you for listening to Jesus and having Him use you as an instrument, tool and vessel in His Name; for never preaching fluff but always preaching the truth and Good News of Jesus Christ, our only hope in this world.”

FARGO, NORTH DAKOTA

“We are so blessed by your ministry. My husband had a major stroke 2 years ago and is confined to a wheelchair. Your weekly messages bring us both comfort and hope. Praying that God will continue to bless you and your staff.” REDFIELD, SOUTH DAKOTA

“God bless everyone that delivers the wonderful messages for the world. I pray you’ll keep the show going until we meet our Savior here on earth once again.”

SIOUX FALLS, SOUTH DAKOTA

“It’s so good to hear the word preached right from the Bible and not man’s way of thinking it should be preached. God bless you for the word you preach. I pray we will see each other in Heaven someday, so I can give you a big sisterly hug. Take care. God our Lord Jesus Christ loves you very much.”

POMEROY, IOWA

“Your programme is the highlight of the week and I’m much in prayer for your ministry. I wonder how many people are praying that God will extend your life by many more years.”

PORT MOODY, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA

“I have been watching your church hour for a while. You have great teachings and humor. You make it very enjoyable, plus your singers and background people are very special.”

TUCSON, ARIZONA

“As always, I watched and thoroughly enjoyed the service on Sunday. You truly spoke to my heart (a mother’s heart) when you addressed the topic of suicide. It’s been heavy on my heart for five long years since my only son took his life. I feel a great load has been lifted with your sermon which included suicide. My son prayed daily even though his life style didn’t always reflect that. He believed in Jesus’ death and resurrection. Thank you and the Lord bless you for your insight and Bible teaching.”

HOUMA, LOUISIANA

“Dear Pastor Salem, I’m amazed at how you and your staff can produce such a wonderful service on T.V. I watch when I can and get a lot of comfort each time I watch you. I feel blessed and closer to the Lord when I watch the program. God bless and keep up the good work for the Lord.”

CASPER, WYOMING

“May God continue to bless your ministry as it is appreciated so much by many including myself. Your sister-in-Christ…”

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK

“I just wanna thank you and thank God for Christian Worship Hour. My husband records it and I listen and watch it when I am off from work. My week is not complete if I do not watch the Christian Worship Hour. I work a 12 hour shift on weekends and it is hard to take off on weekends. I appreciate you very much and praise God you live this long to touch and bless me with your preaching. Keep up the good work. I also appreciate your singers, musicians and crew in making the service possible. May God bless us all including all benefactors of Christian Worship Hour.”

BIG SPRING, TEXAS

“Thanks for your Sunday services. It’s my way to get started for the week. Pastor seems to hit the spot on his sermons. Thank you for being there.”

PRINEVILLE, OREGON
