Ambassadors' Academy Webinar

In March 2008, Living Waters hosted its first Ambassadors' Academy—3 ½ days of intensive evangelism training. Fifty participants from around the world attended the first Academy. Since then, some eight hundred people, from forty-nine states and seven foreign countries, have attended one of the seventeen Ambassadors' Academies.
August will mark our eighteenth Academy and the end of our third season. We are planning to end this season by launching a major addition to the August itinerary—one that has the potential of not only training, but mobilizing tens of thousands of Christian to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, in a single day.

Until now, Living Waters has not made the Academy day of classroom instruction available to the public. But now, through the use of the Internet, we will produce a day-long webinar of the classroom instruction provided to Academy participants.
Now, you and your church can receive life-changing evangelism training from Mark Spence, Ray Comfort, Kirk Cameron, Emeal ("E.Z.") Zwayne, and other members of the Living Waters team. Our hope is that churches around the world will participate in this live webinar by showing the webinar at their churches; and then sending their own evangelism teams into their cities to reach the lost with the gospel of Jesus Christ. While the Ambassadors' Academy is hitting the streets in southern California, churches around the world will hit the streets in their area—effectively mobilizing thousands of Christians around the globe to proclaim the gospel to millions.

To help churches facilitate this world-wide event, Living Waters is providing the webinar at no cost. In addition, we will provide the training syllabus as a free download so the people participating in the webinar can take full advantage of the classroom instruction.
To view the live webinar on Thursday, August 26th, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm click HERE.

"Lying Lips are an Abomination to the LORD"

Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight. Proverbs 12:22

Our Master has a strict honor code. From Genesis to Revelation, the theme is the same: God loves the truth and hates deceit. In 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Paul lists the type of people who will not inherit the kingdom of God. His hit-list is a ragged assortment of those who sin sexually, worship idols, take part in adultery, sell their bodies, get drunk, rob people, and--there it is--lie to others.
Such harshness may surprise you. You mean my fibbing, half-truths, exaggerations, and white lies stir the same heavenly anger as adultery and aggravated assault? Apparently so....

Why the hard line? Why the tough stance?

For one reason: dishonesty is absolutely contrary to the character of God.

He is --holy --holy --holy.

I Shall Not be Moved

He only is my rock and my salvation: He is my defense; I shall not be moved. Psalm 62:6

Here is a big question.
What is God doing when you are in a bind? When the lifeboat springs a leak? When the rip cord snaps? When the last penny is gone before the last bill is paid? When your tract is rejected? When you look like a fool for speaking out and standing up? When ...
I know what we are doing. Nibbling on nails like corn on the cob. Pacing floors. Doubting our calling, doubting the power of the Gospel, and doubting God.

But what does God do?. . .
He fights for us. He steps into the ring and points us to our corner and takes over. "Remain calm; the LORD will fight for you" (Exodus. 14:14).

His job is to fight. Our job is to trust and be faithful. He is the Author and Finisher of our faith. He will complete the work which He started.

Just trust. Not direct. Or question.

Our job is to abide and allow God to be God in all things.
