MY FINAL WORD ABOUT BATAVIA

My final word on Batavia is a series of answers to questions. After this, I will say nothing more about this situation. Our future is too bright. We are not going to slow the locomotive to throw rocks at the barking dogs. I am answering these questions for honest hearts.
Do I have a habit of cancelling crusades? I have only cancelled two crusades in 54 years of preaching. It is an extremely rare and drastic thing for me to do. Cancellations are very disruptive. That is why there has to be a very compelling reason for me to cancel—so compelling that, as I said, I have only done this once before.
Was I committed to Western New York? Last August I was deathly ill. Instead of cancelling my brunch with pastors I rode in a car 13 hours to keep my commitment. I had to drive because the airlines would not let me fly. My dear wife was terrified for two days wondering if I would make it back. Upon my return, after driving another 13 hours, I was immediately hospitalized. Glory to God! Jesus had mercy on me and healed me in the hospital. I find it insulting and sadly hilarious to hear accusations that I have “cut and run” from this crusade.

Did I cancel because they won’t let me mention Trump? This cancellation has nothing to do with Trump. Our enemies oppose what is happening in our meetings. Trump is just the excuse. Why would I risk my life and then cancel just because pastors don’t like Trump. And, does anyone believe I would hold back anything God tells me to preach simply because of “woke” pastors?
I will repeat what I said before. I am not the one talking about Trump they are. The rule for these ministers is not that you cannot talk about Trump. You can say all you want about him so as long as it is bad.
What then is the reason I have cancelled this crusade? Martin Luther King Jr. said “in the end, it is not the words of our enemies that we will remember but the silence of our friends.”

Martin Luther King Jr. said “in the end, it is not the words of our enemies that we will remember but the silence of our friends.”

This crusade ended because of the silence of our friends. Do not blame me or my wonderful team for all the inconvenience you have experienced. It was the silence of our friends.
Where were our friends? I can understand the “woke” pastors and their hare-brained theology. I do not understand why any of our friends would listen to them and let them to cool their zeal.
I can understand there were computer glitches but certainly not enough to drop volunteer numbers this low.
I can understand how a hireling preacher could attend the glorious meetings we had last October and leave unmoved and indifferent. What I cannot understand is our friends who saw the fire, the glory and the harvest last October. Why wouldn’t they work even harder this time around?
This time around there should have been a flood of volunteers. The silence was devastating to me. But my broken heart was still not the reason I felt the leading to cancel. Now I will tell you the reason.
The last 4 weeks before a crusade are when lost souls make their decision to come to the tent. Consider the fact that in Hanford CA we had 1,200 volunteers but in Batavia we had 290 volunteers. This after a brunch with almost 1,000 leaders.

I pray you will go back and be the fiery army I remember. Who knows what God still has for us all.

My staff would have had to handle massive altar calls virtually alone. It would have been chaotic and even dangerous to have such little security, few parking attendants, intercessors, and altar workers.
The stupidity oozing out of “woke” pulpits is something I will soon forget. The false accusations from leftist Christians will fade in my memory very quickly. What will hurt, and haunt me for a long time, is the silence of my friends in Western New York.
My deep hope is that this letter will provoke you to rise up and rally against the religious spirit that is rampant in your region. I pray you will go back and be the fiery army I remember. Who knows what God still has for us all.
