Happy Birthday America!
We greet you this month from “Down Under,” or as Smith Wigglesworth once prophesied, “The Great Southland of the Holy Spirit,” Australia. We have been here 17 days and traveled South to Melbourne and Stanhope, then the West Coast, to the beautiful city of Perth. We are now back in Sydney and tomorrow we go to the Gold Coast. Next week we go to Brisbane before finally returning to Sydney and flying to the USA.

A month-long ministry trip of some 25 meetings which has been fruitful and wonderful and still more to come. We minister again tonight in Sydney and tomorrow off to Coolangatta to minister in the host church for the ICFM Australia Annual Convention, where I’m also ministering all week. Finally, to Brisbane for ministry at Rhema and dear friends, Tony and Patsy Cameneti. I’ve known Patsy since she was a teenager, so proud of them both.

I want to acknowledge and profusely thank dear friends and Pastors, Paul and Wendy Le Lievre, who have gone over and above working and putting this Australian itinerary together and served selflessly in hosting us and caring for us. I also want to thank other host pastors i.e.... John and Eileen Brown in Melbourne, Kez and Wal Sinapius of Stanhope, Margaret and Barry Court of Perth, Dale and Ruth Smith of Broadbeach/Surfers Paradise and Tony and Patsy Camenetti.

Upon returning to America, after about 10 days home, we travel to the Central American nation of Honduras to be the keynote speaker for the World Convention of the Full Gospel Businessmen’s Fellowship International (FGBMFI). Renee will be speaking for the Ladies Day. Honduras has become very dangerous in the last decade. The last time I was there they assigned armed security people to us. While there, I also am preaching a great open-air Crusade, where they expect 10,000 people. Believe with us for great miracles, healings and salvations!

Being here these weeks have been fun and rewarding, not only for the spiritual things, the healings and miracles, plus salvations God has done, but also the seeing old and dear friends from days gone by and hearing their testimonies and ministry experiences over the years. I’m having people tell me that they were in that 10 ½ hour service I held 42 years ago in Perth. Many in the ministry now and some in missionary service, miracle ministries, pastors, evangelistic ministry and more.

One testimony last week; a brother told me that he received a creative miracle in that service they have started calling “The Wednesday Night,” back in 1982. He told me he had two wisdom teeth on the left bottom side. They were hurting him terribly. In that service, the anointing of God totally dissolved them both. Gone, disappeared, non-existent! Major creative miracle, to God be the glory! It seems that I’m getting more testimonies at every town and every meeting.

I’m writing this to you the last of June and next week is the fourth of July, American Independence Day, America’s 248th birthday. This mighty nation which has been a beacon and a lighthouse of freedom to the nations of the world all these years, has been under attack by Hell and her cohorts in Hollywood, Washington DC, and elsewhere to try to make the USA a communist and third world country, with no exceptionalism or any difference from the other nations around the globe. The problem with that is that she is special, she is exceptional, she is different, and she is better because America is the only nation on the planet that was created for freedom of religion, for free worship of God, and was dedicated by the Founding Fathers to God, given to Him, America belongs to God! 

This morning, I again re-read some 115 quotes from Founding Fathers and early Statesmen about God, the Bible and their own belief in Jesus Christ as their Savior. This is not an exhaustive list, there are many more. The 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence were mostly Christians, 27 were Seminary graduates and several were ministers. They were faithful to give glory to God and to incorporate His Holy Word in their famous writings of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. No such documents or no such nation has had the beginnings or the Holy reasons for existence as these.

They knew the risk, that signing the Declaration would paint a bullseye on them, their families, their homes and their businesses. They were patriots, but they were also subjects of the British Crown.  Signing would make them criminals… traitors. Penalty for being a traitor… death by hanging! These 56 signers (there would have been more, but some were absent on that day) proved by their every deed that they made no idle boast when they composed the most magnificent line in history (aside from the Bible), “… and for the support of this declaration with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence.  We mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.” That last line of the declaration is a statement of their personal commitment! Just as the mostly unknown last verse of our great National Anthem states: “Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, And this be our motto- In God is our trust, And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave. O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.”

I know you are staying in agreement with us concerning our new vehicle for the ministry and our upcoming Pastor’s conference to Jewish pastors in Ashod, Israel the last week of November. The funds for both projects have been coming in and it will be done!

We love you and pray for you daily. Remember our weekly “More Than Conquerors” YouTube program every Thursday, with hundreds more in the archives.

Jesus is Lord over Australia and America…

For the World that Cost Jesus His Blood and God His Son,
Terry L. Mize
