My Dear Friends of Radio Missions:
Many years ago our late Pastor L. R. Shelton, Sr. wrote in this magazine (our
Voice of Truth magazine) an article entitled
"A Letter to Awakened Sinners." I know from speaking to many of you and receiving your letters, phone calls and emails,
there are some of you who fit that description; an awakened or concerned individual. You are not Saved but the Lord, by His grace
and His Spirit, has begun a work in your heart. You cannot - even if you try - throw off that still small voice in your heart
telling you that you are not Saved. You may have been a part of this Ministry for a long time, lingering there, struggling with
Satan and all the forces of Hell; or maybe you have recently begun to see somewhat of your old sin nature and are now striving with sin.
No matter what your condition is, I tell you, if you have any concern for your soul and where it will spend Eternity, the Lord God
of Heaven, by His Holy Spirit has called you unto Salvation. The danger I see in your situation is you will linger, throw off the
Spirit's wooing, and turn back to the beggarly elements of the world and be forever lost.
Oh my dear one, I cannot emphasize too strongly how you should seek the Lord before it is too late. You are blessed beyond measure.
I don't know or see many who want to be Saved. Our religious world is largely taken over by Satan and his emissaries. There is not
much true Gospel going out.
Here at Radio Missions, for many years now, we have only given out "thus saith the Lord." We have endeavored, by the
grace of God, to be true to the Souls of those who hear. I could spend time here warning you to flee from the wrath that is to
come but I want to be as compassionate as I can be. If your heart has been touched or mellowed by the Spirit's work, you want to
hear of how God loves sinners and how He waits to be gracious. So I come to you with words of kindness and love, yet I know that
every sinner who is ever Saved will one day have that old natural heart tendered and that old stubborn will broken. This must happen,
this will happen; no one will ever enter Heaven with an unbroken will.
As your Pastor, awakened sinner, I plead with you, yes I beg you to start now to get honest with the Lord about your soul. Search the
Scriptures daily, read the four Gospels, search out His promises. Remember, He waits to be gracious, He says to you, yes to you,
"Come now, let us reason together ... though your sins ... be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." (Isa. 1:18). Let me
hear from you. Remember you are on my heart. I want to see you come to know the Lord. I tell you it's the greatest thing that will
ever happen to you in this life or the life to come.
Pray for me that I will continue to be true to the souls of men.
Your Gospel Preacher
