It was Sunday, March 25, 2018. In the earliest hours of a new day after the celebration of my half-centennial birthday, the previous evening. Close friends had arrived from as far away cities as Toronto, Ontario, Canada; Glasgow, Scotland; and London, England to celebrate with me. It had been a long evening of an atmosphere replete with festive merrymaking! I had ensured that everyone had safely arrived at their hotel rooms. Then I had arrived at my house last, at about 2 a.m. I had prepared to tuck my feet under the duvet — and was about to reach for the switch of my bedside-lamp when a loud bell had rung in my spirit. It had been unmistakable. Its ding-a-ling familiarity couldn’t be discounted: I had heard it on a few occasions before. It had translated into a strong, fresh nudge from the Holy Spirit to “Revisit the manuscript of Heaven’s Ambassadors — and get ready to publish it in 2019!” The Father’s instructions to me most times had not been more explicit! So, that evening, I had requested my older, twin-sons to dig me up a fortune from our home’s loft. Thus, I had re-commenced work! At first, I had only added a few side comments to the hand-written manuscript of 1986. Then, I had re-structured and re-constructed original tenses and phrases. Very soon, I would generally find myself doing more than just adding a few tweaks here and there: The result is the proof you’re now in possession of. (In all honesty, I had illuminated the manuscript of ’50 Invaluable Life-Lessons I've Learned in 50 Years’, alongside re-writing this book in the 2018/9 writing season! Yes, sometimes, I had read two or three books at a time, so why couldn’t I attempt to write in the same style in God’s mindful time?) "So, tell me, Sammy; why did it take you so long to publish this work?" somebody may inquire! The reason(s) for the delay in making public this work lies in my deep, unwavering conviction that each of my published works indeed has an appropriate, time-frame, pre-set in Heaven for its release! And gathering from the many documented testimonies that had flocked us in almost a decade of publishing at SJM, PULSE Publishing House books have been specifically written for — and have always arrived in the hands of certain, specific, intended readers whose situations had been suddenly turned around by the Lord of Hosts, upon digesting our contents. I do indeed currently have in my possession, two or three more titles that have been drafted, nearing completion, or had been completely abandoned, awaiting the Master's ding-a-ling tune of a re-awakening! Therefore, I do not view either the effort or the time invested into compiling any unpublished work, a loss — particularly if Heaven had not confirmed their rightful, set times of release! Then as we had readied efforts to release this book late November 2019, Father-God had had another idea: Deemed it fit to recall my eighty-three-year-old mom Home, without a warning! Mom had not been ill: She had woken up as usual at 6.30 a.m., on that Sunday morning of the 26th She had prayed — and had ”felt like resting, just a bit longer!” She had slipped into eternity! My grieving for mom — and her burial ceremony’s plans had superseded the book’s publication and release! Then came the epidemic Coronavirus — COVID-19 — that had first been discovered in Wuhan, China late 2019. By January, it had transmuted into a pandemic that had claimed tens of thousands of lives and brought the world’s economies to its knees! This watershed experience had forever altered the way the Church evangelized the lost! Now, because I am aware of the rare unction upon this particular project, may I prophesy unto you in the name of the One Who called and anointed me, that: ”These printed pages will forever be a testament to the ever-living seed of God’s Heavenly vision unto you who obediently avail yourself to heed His voice!” In this newly re-written, re-arranged, smartly edited piece of work, therefore, I have highlighted cogent, inescapable issues that will inexplicably be encountered by Heaven's Ambassadors, generally, as they go about their daily activities while aiming at not misrepresenting Heaven’s dignity to Earth’s scornful, disdainful, hateful, prideful, sinful humans. I have not only brought these issues to the fore but have also proffered Heavenly wisdom to help combat them!
Discover these and many more discussions of God's timely message to you through this fascinating, thrilling, book of three parts on Evangelism. I have kickstarted this work with ’Book I: The Caller, The Called, and The Call!’
