The president of a worldwide Christian ministry has called upon believers to urgently occupy themselves with God’s work before the return of Christ.
Speaking at a sold out International Evening at Westminster Chapel on 20 October, Dr Michael Youssef from the Atlanta based ministry Leading The Way challenged: “We need to stop running to the hills in white robes, but do everything we can to tell the world about Christ before he returns.
“Just seeing the urgency of the time should not just make us sit there and count the days, but really get busy witnessing and serving and getting involved in global evangelism, which is what Leading The Way does,” Dr Youssef told more 1,000 Leading the Way supporters and listeners at the event which was hosted by Premier Radio.
He added: “We need to get busy, serve God, lift Jesus up, don’t be intimidated or be fearful. Let the Word do it. As Martin Luther says, you lift up Jesus and he’ll do the rest.”
Leading The Way is busy doing just that through their radio, TV and internet programmes which are now being broadcast in 190 countries in 21 languages.
The ministry is also reaching into remote impoverished areas of the world with the Gospel through the ‘Navigator’ solar-powered pocket mp3 players containing a copy of the Bible and Dr Youssef’s biblical teachings.
Dr Youssef, originally from Egypt and now based in Atlanta in America, has also started broadcasting the Truth of Christ to the Arab world via Leading the Way’s 24/7 satellite TV channel –The Kingdom Sat.
“If you told me four years ago that we would have a television station broadcasting 24/7 into 160 million homes in the Arab world and Europe on Arab sat and Nile sat the most popular Arab satellites, I wouldn’t have believed it,” he said. “But God really put it together.”
