The following letter-form was brought about as a means of teaching my children the Word of God through the mail. And of course, quite naturally so, that’s the reason I begin these letters with "Dear Children" and end them with "Love Dad". So for the rest of you who participate in these weekly messages, please keep their original intended purpose in mind.
17 July, 2011
On the 3rd of July 2011, after having awakened from a deep sleep, the Lord brought to mind the vision He gave Jimmy Swaggart back in 1999 concerning the 2000 radio translator stations he was to put in place for the glory of God. In fact Jimmy Swaggart often said that God gave him the unmistakable mandate to “cover the nation” with SonLife Radio. But that was then, and this is now, and somewhere along the way something terrible went wrong! Because as you are about to see in this message of today, “Jimmy Swaggart’s SonLife Radio Made A Liar Out Of God!”
Now in order to properly tell this story as God has instructed, I really needed some documented proof of what actually took place way back then. And as the Good Lord would have it, in May of 2002 I took along two copies of the most recent issue of “The Evangelist” (April and May of 2002) on what would be my last trip to minister to Jimmy Swaggart before losing most of my worldly possessions… which even included my seven (7) year collection of “The Evangelist”.
You see it was on the 15th of May 2002, ten (10) days after having finished the sermonet “Is Jimmy Swaggart’s Wife ‘Frances’ Really Uncovered?”, that the Lord put me back on the road, headed to Baton Rouge, LA, and fully expecting not to have an apartment when I returned. And just as I suspected, not only did Jimmy Swaggart reject “what thus saith the Lord” through me, but also the “Christian” owner of my apartment complex did the same. Because upon my return to El Paso, I found that I had lost my apartment and everything in it! I had officially become “homeless for Jesus”! (See “Charles Nieman’s ‘Abundant Living Faith’ Is Dead!” for more on the subject.)
So with that in mind, the following is what Jimmy Swaggart had to say about that urgent command from the Lord – “to cover the entirety of this nation with SonLife Radio” – in his “From Me To You” section of the May 2002 issue of “The Evangelist” (http://www.fmh-child.org/JSM_Evangelist_5.02.pdf):
…As you've heard me say many times, in 1999, the Lord gave me the vision concerning Radio. I’ll be frank with you, before that time. I had absolutely no thought or idea regarding Radio. Even though the Ministry, at that time, owned two Stations (Baton Rouge and Bowling Green, Ohio), what we are doing now never entered my mind.
But then the Lord began to move upon my heart concerning a brand-new style of Radio, which, to my knowledge, had never, at least on this scale, been done. The Lord told me to change the programming on our two Stations, in that it must come from Family Worship Center in its entirety. As well, we were to apply for frequencies with the F.C.C. (Federal Communications Commission), in Washington, D.C., which we instantly began to do. We have already installed about 50 of these frequencies, scattered all over the nation.
These are small, low-power Stations, which reach in every direction anywhere from 10 to 20 miles. While they cover the town in question, as would be obvious, they are limited.
I knew, however, if we were to do what the Lord was telling us to do, we had to find a way to get Radio coverage in the major cities. But yet, considering the cost of Stations in major cities, which was way beyond our capacity, I didn't know how this could be done.
But after seeking the Lord about this thing for about six months, He began to open up to me a way that it could be done. And that's exactly what we are doing now.
LET ME TELL YOU WHY
There are two reasons, I personally believe, that the Lord has called us to do this. And let me emphasize first of all, "SONLIFE RADIO" is not just another religious effort. It is a Revelation from the Lord. That means that it is a tremendously important work in the world at this present time, as it regards the Work of God…
HOW DOES THIS AFFECT YOU?
If the Lord has told us to air the type of programming we are airing over SonLife Radio, and He definitely has, and if He has told us to cover the entirety of this nation with SonLife Radio, and He definitely has, then we must understand how so very important all of this actually is.
As would be obvious, I cannot do this thing alone. I must have your help!
Now what you have just read is only a portion of what Jimmy Swwaggart had to say in his “From Me To You” section of the May 2002 issue of “The Evangelist”. Some of what he said was God’s Truth, but yet the rest of it was a bald-faced lie… as in straight from the pit of Hell! And with that in mind, please allow me to explain.
You see at the time of that particular publication, Jimmy Swaggart had actually installed 50 of God’s 2000 translator stations. For approximately three (3) years Jimmy Swaggart had been asking for help in accomplishing this “tremendously important work for the Lord”. In fact I personally witnessed Jimmy Swaggart taking up designated offerings at his Campmeeting services for the translator stations which he claimed cost $15,000 each (approximately $4000 for the engineering work and $11000 for equipment). I watched as many people donated the full amount in order to have a station dedicated in their name. The money was coming in, but yet some three years later there were only 50 of these stations in place. So what went wrong?
Well, I’m glad you asked! And seeing how we’ve already been there and done that, the answer to that question will be relatively easy for me to answer. Because you see it was in our sermonet of 1/2/11 – “Jimmy Swaggart Doesn’t Doeth The Will Of The Father!” – that we documented a “revelation from the Lord” concerning Jimmy Swaggart’s disobedient ways.
You see the way it all came about was on a Friday night (the 31st of December 2010), as I was preparing yet another YouTube video for the sermonet “Jimmy Swaggart Got His Door(s) Blown Off!”, that I heard Jimmy Swaggart trash up the following Words of Jesus:
“He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” (John 7:38 KJV)
It was unbelievable what I heard Jimmy Swaggart speak through his own mouth that I received through my ears that finally hit bottom in my stomach and made me want to throw up! An “abomination” is putting it mildly!
But anyway, it was the following morning while in prayer that the Lord directed me to check out his commentary on that same Scripture in his “Jimmy Swaggart’s Expositor’s Study Bible” (JSESB). And this is what I found (the words in italics are Jimmy Swaggart’s, not God’s):
“He who believes on Me (it is “not doing,” but rather, “believing”), as the Scripture hath said (refers to the Word of God being the story of Christ and Him Crucified; all the Sacrifices pointed to Christ and what He would do at the Cross, as well as the entirety of the Tabernacle and Temple and all their appointments), out of his belly (innermost being) shall flow rivers of Living Water (speaks of Christ directly, and Believers indirectly).” (John 7:38 JSESB)
That’s what Jimmy Swaggart had to say in his perverted “JSESB”… and that is the very same reason only 50 translator stations had been installed by May of 2002:
“He who believes on Me (it is “not doing,” but rather, “believing”)…”
Jimmy Swasggart says that “believing” on Jesus is not “doing” what He says. And it’s that same “belief” of Jimmy Sawaggart that will take him and all those who “believe” in his perverted “gospel of the cross” straight to Hell:
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 7:21 KJV)
So God told Jimmy Swaggart to put in place 2000 small, low-power translator stations that would only reach 10 to 20 miles in every direction (20 to 40 mile coverage). That’s what God said! But to go along with it, the Lord gave Jimmy Swaggart a Word to help him do it “God’s way” and not “Jimmy Swaggart’s way”:
“For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.” (Zechariah 4:10 KJV)
You see the preceding Scripture explains the Word that God gave Jimmy Swaggart concerning the 2000 little translator stations that he was commanded to build: “Don’t despise small things!” Because it was in this same context that the Lord spoke to Zechariah concerning the building of the second temple that replaced the first temple that was destroyed because the stiff-necked Jews rejected the Messiah (Jesus). The first temple was magnificent, but the second one was what you might consider the bare essentials needed to get the job done.
And with “small things” in mind, let’s get back to the question of “why was there only 50 translator stations in place by May of 2002”… and we’re going to answer that question by going back and picking up the beginning of what Jimmy Swaggart had to say in his “From Me To You” section of the May 2002 issue of “The Evangelist” (http://www.fmh-child.org/JSM_Evangelist_5.02.pdf):
NEW FULL-POWER RADIO STATIONS
As most of you now know, in the recent past, we have added the giant 50,000 watt FM Station, KNRB, in Atlanta, Texas, the coverage area of which includes Shreveport, Louisiana, Texarkana, Arkansas, Longview, Texas, plus over 390 other towns. The Atlanta frequency is 100.1.
We have also added a full-power FM Station, WAYB, in Dayton, Tennessee, which covers most of Chattanooga, Tennessee, Cleveland, Tennessee, plus approximately 150 other towns in that area. The actual coverage area of this Station (95.7 on the FM dial) reaches to within 30 miles of Knoxville, Tennessee.
In addition to the above, we have added an AM Station in Camden, Arkansas, KNHD, which covers approximately 50 towns in the surrounding area. It is located at 1450 on the AM dial.
At the time of this writing, we are looking at several other full-power Stations, each of which will cover a large number of people. In fact, by the lime you read this, we may well have one or two of them on the air. I would ask that you pray with us, that we may have the mind of the Lord in all things, doing exactly what He wants done, no more or no less. We seek to be led by Him in every capacity.
HOW ARE WE DOING THIS?
We are doing it by the leading and guidance of the Lord, and that in totality, and that's why I implore you to constantly pray for us in this respect.
Now don’t you just love the term “full-power”? It sounds “really big” doesn’t it? And as it concerns Jimmy Swaggart and his “really small” 2000 translator stations, Jimmy Swaggart decided “big is better”… and even though it was not part of God’s plan for SonLife Radio:
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Proverbs 1:7 KJV)
So with the word “fool” in mind, let’s see how well Jimmy Swaggart has done in fulfilling God’s 1999 command to “cover the entirety of this nation with SonLife Radio”. Because the following is what you will find on the JSM Web site under the heading of “SonLife Radio Network Station List” (http://www.jsm.org/sonlife_station_list.php):
The following locations show “sorry no stations in yet” when you click on the locator map to find a SonLife Radio Station:
Now isn’t that impressive? Jimmy Swaggart’s way – not God’s way – has resulted in less than half of the United States of America being covered by SonLife Radio (21 states with and 29 states without). But that ain’t all! The real kicker is that since May of 2002 there has been absolutely “zero” growth in the SonLife Radio translator stations. There were 50 “small” translator stations in place then, and there are still only 50 “small” translator stations to this day. Jimmy Swaggart forsook the “small things” in favor of the “BIG”. Jimmy Swaggart didn’t “cover the entirety of this nation with SonLife Radio” through God’s 2000 “small” translator stations, but Jimmy Swasggart did purchase an additional 22 “full-power” stations that really make him feel “BIG” by reaching the “big cities” instead of the “small towns” with his new and perverted “gospel of the cross”.
“And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.” (Luke 14:23 KJV)
So the question remains, how many of those “small rural town” people, that Jimmy Swaggart was suppose to reach with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, have never received it because he never built the “small” translator stations in the “small” rural towns as God commanded? And what makes matters even worse is that a “big” part of the reason Jimmy Swaggart is now preaching a perverted gospel to a lost and dying world is because he took on another spirit when he didn’t obey God by building the 2000 “small” translator stations:
“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.” (1 Samuel 15:23 KJV)
Now with the 2000 translator stations in mind, have you ever heard the saying that “two wrongs don’t make it right’? Well, as we’ve already discovered, Jimmy Swaggart’s “full-power” radio stations were “wrong #1”… but what about the other?
Good question! And in order to thoroughly understand the innermost workings of “wrong #2” – how Jimmy Swaggart made God a liar by not obeying His command to “cover the entirety of this nation with SonLife Radio” – we need to pick up on what Jimmy Swwaggart had to say in his “From Me To You” section of the April 2002 issue of “The Evangelist” (http://www.fmh-child.org/JSM_Evangelist_4.02.pdf) :
ANOTHER FULL POWER FM RADIO STATION
The Lord has opened up for us the opportunity to acquire another full power FM Station, covering about one million people. The principal city in this coverage area is Chattanooga, Tennessee. We give the Lord all the praise and glory for this.
I believe He has called us to touch this nation by Radio, and that's what we've set out to do. How so very, very much I thank you, and of course I speak to those of you who have helped us, and are helping us do this, which I believe is so very important to the Work of God.
Why not Television?
I cannot fully answer that. We're still on Television, and we thank the Lord for what He is helping us to see as it regards this particular effort; however. I do have some thoughts on the subject:
What we're doing with Radio is that which the Lord has told us to do. I know that beyond the shadow of a doubt.
I believe the Message of the Cross is the message of the hour. I believe it is that which the Holy Spirit is proclaiming to the nation and the world, and is actually the dividing line between the True Church and the apostate Church. As I've said many times, this has always been the case, but now I feel it is more pronounced than ever. And to be sure. Radio is one of the greatest ways to proclaim this Message.
You see Jimmy Swaggart’s “second wrong that don’t make it right” was/is television. Because it was way back in April of 2002 that Jimmy Swaggart openly admitted to the fact that the Lord God Almighty had him focused on radio – “cover the entirety of this nation with SonLife Radio” – not national or worldwide television… and for some God-determined reason that Jimmy Swaggart could not fully comprehend.
Well, that was then and this is now. Because now we have “SonLife Broadcasting Network” with it’s worldwide television coverage of the Jimmy Swaggart telecast. And the following is what Jimmy Swaggart has to say about his dearly beloved SBN (http://www.jsm.org/AboutSonLifeBroadcastingNetwork.php):
About SonLife Broadcasting Network
Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. (Mark 16:15)
The SonLife Broadcasting Network is a Christian multi-media network, which includes Television, Radio and Internet broadcasts. An outreach of Jimmy Swaggart Ministries, this network offers a variety of live and prerecorded programs, specializing in music and teaching, that appeal to audiences of all generations and backgrounds. The line-up is comprised of music, talk-shows, live Church services, studio programs, youth programs, children’s programs and much, much more. Jimmy Swaggart Ministries has not only had an impact in the United States in the last 50 years, but as well, has an international reach that still continues to this day…
You see it was during the 1980s that Jimmy Swaggart became the #1 evangelist in the world, and it was largely due to his worldwide television audience acquired through his worldwide television coverage. In fact Jimmy Swaggart actually believed (and still does) that Mark 16:15 was written by God specifically for him: “Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.” However, it was shortly after Jimmy Swaggart’s fling with prostitute #2 that his worldwide television coverage hit rock bottom… and then Leonard Ravenhill made the following prophetic utterance that we included in our sermonet “Jimmy Swaggart: The Epitome Of Arrogance!”:
“Jimmy Swaggart is arrogant because he says God called him to evangelize the world. In the first place that’s wrong.” (Leonard Ravenhill)
Now with Jimmy Swaggart’s “arrogance” in mind – “I’m the only one called to evangelize the world” – it’s time to uncover the bottom line reason for God Almighty instructing Jimmy Swaggart to build the 2000 translator stations that would only cover the nation with SonLife Radio in the rural towns and communities. And we’re going o do it through the following two (2) quotes from the Biography Channel’s documentary entitled “Jimmy Swaggart: Fire And Brimstone”:
Hunter Lundy (Attorney for Marvin Gorman):
“It was deformation. I mean, it was slanderous. I mean, everybody knew that Jimmy Swaggart’s motive was competition and money.”
Tammy Faye Messner (Bakker):
“There’s only, of course, so many Christians. And that a pie can only be cut in so many pieces. And so when one drops out, that makes another big chunk of pie that’s available.”
You see the two (2) quotes above came from very reliable people who had experienced Jimmy Swaggart’s unrestrained and ungodly determination to be “the evangelist of the world”. Both of these ministries – “Marvin Gorman” and “Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker” – were totally destroyed by “Jimmy Swaggart and family” for the ultimate purpose of “getting a larger portion of the television pie”. I mean, after all, Jimmy Swaggart wanted it all… and regardless of whatever it might take to get it.
“How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver! The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul. Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.” (Proverbs 16:16-18 KJV)
So, Jimmy Swaggart’s pride got the best of him. But then God, in His loving mercy, got the best of Jimmy Swaggart by allowing his well-publicized “fall” with two (2), not one (1), very real prostitutes! I mean, after all, Jimmy Swaggart is extremely stubborn. It takes a lot, as in 2x, to finally get his attention. But God finally got it! And then came God’s chastening with the 2000 SonLife translator stations that would have brought Jimmy Swaggart back into a proper relationship with Jesus… that is if he would have only obeyed Him.
So are you starting to get the picture of just how much it means to Jimmy Swaggart to be “the evangelist of the world”? I mean, what wouldn’t Jimmy Swaggart do to be “it”? And of course the answer to that one is a resounding “NOTHING”… which even includes “making God a liar”.
SonLife Broadcasting Network (TV) Satellite Dish
And with that in mind, please allow me to drive home the point of what Jimmy Swaggart has done through the following excerpt from our 4/3/05 sermonet entitled “Christians Who Make God A Liar!”
But anyway, the title of this week’s sermonet is “Christians Who Make God A Liar!” And as hard as that might be for most Christians to believe, the following Bible Text proves that it can be done:
“He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.” (1 John 5:10 KJV)
But before we go there, let’s first of all take a look at what Webster has to say about what it takes (the criteria) for someone to be classified a “liar”:
1.) one who makes an untrue statement with intent to deceive
2.) one who creates a false or misleading impression
Now, as it applies to our God-given Text of I John 5:10 – “he that believeth not God hath made him a liar” – I think it should only stand to reason that Webster’s #1 definition of “liar” can not possibly apply to God! I mean there is absolutely “no way” that the Almighty could utter an untrue statement in order to deceive anyone; God is all Truth! And besides that, the Scripture is pretty plain in that “the reason” God becomes a liar is because of somebody else; “he that believeth not God hath made him a liar”.
So, Webster’s first definition of liar can not apply to God! However, it is very possible for definition #2 to apply if we as Christians do not “believe” the Father by just doing what He tells us!
Jimmy Swasggart says that “believing” on Jesus is not “doing” what He says:
“He who believes on Me (it is “not doing,” but rather, “believing”)…”
And seeing how Jimmy Swaggart didn’t “believe” God’s Word, by “doing” the 2000 Sonlife Radio translator stations, he made himself a fool and God a liar!
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Proverbs 1:7 KJV)
So there you have it: another installment in the long-running series of “Jimmy Swaggart And The Accursed!” Will Jimmy Swaggart ever learn to “keep on keeping the faith in Jesus???”
