Dear Ones in Christ,
For the unsaved, there must be deep-seated despair in their hearts, with states going bankrupt, delayed tax refunds, elections in turmoil, confusion and dread of what`s coming. Movies showing the end of the world, worries about the Mayan calendar ending in 2012 —it can be described in a few words: "What a Mess!"
Satan is having a great time. After all, the world`s system is his. He claimed this when he tempted the Lord Jesus. The devil showed him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them and said: "All these things will I give thee if thou wilt fall down and worship me," (Matthew 4:8-10). God gave Satan this position until Jesus returns and rules from Jerusalem.
Today, Satan has the world glued to their televisions, lost in sports, games, or watching everyone arguing about the cares of this world. But, as believers, we have the advantage of knowing that Jesus is coming soon. However, there is going to be lots of blood on our hands if we don`t share the Gospel. (See Ezekiel 3:18-19.)
As a teen, I would have thanked God if I were handed something like a Chick tract, but no one ever witnessed to me. I had to hear it from a radio broadcast (thank God) the night I got saved.
Today, everyone is scared and looking for help, especially teens. The Lord has given us just what they need: Christian literature teens will read. Beloved, don`t let their blood be on your hands.
Hopeless teens are everywhere hiding from reality by using drugs, sex and thinking of suicide. They block out the world with cell phones, texting or playing video games, because they dread their hopeless future. Only the Gospel can give them hope in the Lord Jesus Christ plus eternal life.
Beloved, are you still planting or passing along three tracts a day? If not, shame on you! Call us or visit www.chick.com to see our new material. After all, we are printing the best possible tracts we can, just for you. We can`t reach them all without your help. We`re counting on you and so is the Lord.
I love you,
Your brother in Christ,
