We live in a society that actively seeks to remove God from everyday life. We see this in the way our culture devalues the words of God revealed in the Bible.
Yet we know that “faith comes by hearing, and hearing comes from the Word of God” (Romans 10:17). God’s word is the root of our faith and source of our hope. That’s why the world opposes it and that’s why we must promote it.
You can see the world’s opposition everywhere. Atheist billboards proclaim “God is a myth.” Our schools restrict prayer. Our children are taught The “big bang” and evolution theories. Confusion surrounds the definition of separation of church and state. People have sued to remove, “In God We Trust” from our currency. Even wishing someone a “Merry Christmas” can stir up such a controversy!
So it’s not really a surprise that Signs4Jesus was recently denied a permit to install a sign displaying a daily Bible scripture on privately owned property. We believe there is a deep and dark spiritual force behind this, seeking to remove faith from our world and hope from our nation. The bible forewarns us and explains the warfare we will face, which is not with flesh and blood but against these dark spiritual forces. We can overcome these forces but we don’t enter into warfare by our own strength or armed with physical weapons. Instead we rely on God’s True Word – proclaimed tactfully and peacefully. It is only by God’s Word we can cast down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against God.
Christians have many ways to explore the Word of God, such as Christian broadcasting, daily devotions or fellowship with other believers. But what about people who haven’t yet believed or even heard the gospel? How will they hear if they don’t have a bible or a church? How will they hear if they don’t access Christian television or radio? What if they simply feel apprehensive about reading the Bible?
Signs for Jesus provides another opportunity for these who haven’t heard. Every day as thousands pass by they may find themselves stopped at a light, only to read an encouraging word from the scripture. In the midst of chaotic and demanding lives, the Word of God ministers and provides a moment of peace that counteracts the lies they have so often heard.
We’ll never know how many people God has touched through the Word proclaimed. We have been continually amazed by the testimonies of how the sign scriptures have affected so many lives at exactly the right time. Romans 10:17 indeed!
At Signs4Jesus we believe that God’s word is infallible and that faith comes by hearing – just as the Bible teaches. We are simply trusting God’s word to do what He promises us it will- cause faith! Please join this effort to spread the Word of God in the streets, in our communities, and to those who have yet to hear. God gave us a very clear vision to place these signs all across our country. Please help us make this vision a reality.
The Lord has given me a very clear vision of Signs4Jesus from the very beginning. It is not about me personally, or any one particular person, organization, or church. This is about mobilizing the body of Christ, uniting His children together for one purpose: to spread the Good News in the highways and bi-ways!
Thanks to the offers of countless Americans, we already have multiple potential sign sites and prospects from all over the country! Praise the Lord!
I will update you all very soon on how we will move forward regards to the Chichester sign permit denial.
By God’s grace,
