A NEW SONG - Monthly Devotion

Dear fellow worker of the Christian Worship Hour:

 I was raised on a farm (proud of it).  I have many wonderful memories of the farm, but perhaps the greatest was harvest time.  Jesus talked about a harvest, listen to Him:

“Therefore said He unto them, “The harvest is great, but laborers are few:  pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth laborers into His harvest”.  Luke 10:2

 This great challenge tells us:

 THERE IS A GREAT HARVEST BEFORE US. Jesus said it took in the whole world! Jesus also said that His heart ached for that harvest.  (Matthew 9:36-38).  God the Father valued this harvest so much that He gave His Son so as to bring it in.  (John 3:16).  Somehow, dear friend, we are going to have to do something so we see that vast harvest as our Lord sees it.  (Matthew 23:37-39).

  • THE HARVEST IS READY NOW. On the farm, we didn’t take a vacation at harvest time, just the opposite, we got up early and we worked late (except on Sunday).  There was an urgency about it.  Jesus tells us that the harvest time for souls is right now, this day, we must not wait a minute.  Listen to Jesus, “Say not ye, there are yet four months and then cometh the harvest”, don’t dally around but bring in the lost, the time is now.  (John 4:35;  II Corinthians 6:2).  We must work now!
  • THE HARVEST IS VERY VALUABLE. It sure was to us out on the farm; we needed it for the livestock and maybe sell a little to get by.  The harvest Jesus is talking about is far more precious than anything we had out on the farm.  He is talking about a harvest that is so valuable that Jesus shed His blood to make it possible for that harvest to be brought in.  The soul of a person is more valuable than all the world put together, we must bring them in.  (Mark 8:36-38).
  • THE HARVEST NEEDS WORKERS. It sure won’t come in by itself.  The harvest is like a lost sheep (Isaiah 53:6) and believe me; they never come in by themselves!  But the tragedy of it all is that God has many children, but not very many laborers!  So Jesus says, “The harvest is truly plenteous, but the laborers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth laborers into his harvest.”  (Matthew 9:37, 38).  Every one of us needs to be listening, Jesus is calling us to do help in the harvest but we are too busy with the trinkets of this world to bring the eternal soul of the lost.
  • SOME WAYS WE CAN HELP BRING IN THE HARVEST. For one thing we can tell others Jesus saved our soul, what He has done for us.  The maniac of Gadara was saved, and he immediately wanted to leave all and follow Jesus and bring in the harvest.  (Mark 5:18-20).  The woman of Samaria, who had a string of past husbands and was now shacked up with some jerk, found Christ and went back into the city, told her story of redemption and started a revival!  (John 4:28,29).  Listen and I’ll bet you will hear a still, small voice saying, “Help Me with the harvest”.  If you obey, you will be blessed to the depth of your heart.  Tell others.  Pray like crazy.  Give like crazy too, and watch the harvest come in!

As I wrote this devotional I thought, just think, the Christian Worship Hour is going into the whole world, all over the globe bringing in the harvest.  (Isaiah 55:11).

 And won’t we be glad we labored when we see the King!  God bless you.

In our Savior’s Love,

Pastor Salem

LETTERS FROM OUR VIEWERS

THANK YOU FOR WRITING…

Thank you for continuing your program, as I know Pastor Salem will be pleased to reach more souls to be saved.  The team does a great job.

MISSOURI

Thank you for your continuing good works.  I watch at least one service during the week and another service on Sunday.  It helps keep one spiritually and emotionally on the level.  It’s my “cure” for the Covid blues.  I really get a lot out of listening to Pastor Salem—always have—he was a fine pastor that stuck to the Bible.

SOUTH DAKOTA

The crazy thing is I came to God in early March.  That means Pastor Salem helped me find Jesus Christ from Heaven.  My sins have been washed away through the blood of Jesus Christ on the cross and I am forgiven and my sins are forgotten.  Thanks to a recorded Gospel from CWH and Pastor Salem.

NEW YORK

We are not able to get to our church very often because of our health and are so thankful for Christian Worship Hour.

MINNESOTA

Amen!  I continue to learn and be inspired by watching Pastor Salem’s sermons!  Amen! God bless all of you!

FACEBOOK

I started listening to your program last year and enjoy learning about God from Dr. Salem.  Thank you for your ministry and may God richly bless you.

GEORGIA

I enjoy watching the program, God bless all of you!  Pastor Salem said “the best is yet to come!”  I hope it’s soon!

FACEBOOK

This is my tithes to your ministry.  I have no church so I listen to you for my church.  God has blessed me with your ministry, thank you.

TEXAS

Thank you Pastor Harold E. Salem, I will always LOVE hearing you preach even though you’re in Heaven now.  Thank the Lord through it all.

FACEBOOK

Thank you for the card with the Bible verses on it.  God and Jesus blesses the Christian Worship Hour.  Lately I have been using the card with the Bible verses.

ILLINOIS (What Must I Do to Be Saved card)

I know Brother Salem has gone on to be with the Lord but I still love to hear his sermons.  Keep up the good work.

MISSOURI

At the prison I’m at, the only access to the true Word of God I have is on TV bible studies like yours.  People in prison need this bible study more than most. The power to change my life lies in the Word of God.  He is my only hope to return home to my family truly changed.  Pastor Salem’s teaching did that for me today.  His teaching was food to my spirit.  That’s why I write this plea. If I could I would send much more to keep this going.  I’m fearful that this teaching will go unfunded and I will lose it.  And Pastor Salem teaches on subject most don’t.

INMATE LETTER

MEMORIALS
