Tips for getting more replies to your letters To get the best response to your letters, here are some tips that may be helpful. 1) Write a neat, readable letter. Use clean paper and envelope with no coffee or food stains. Don’t use perfume or cologne. Many people have allergies. 2) Personalize your letter. Say “Your ad caught my attention because...” Make this person feel that you have picked him or her out because you saw something especially interesting or attractive in their ad 3) Write your letter about what you have to offer and what you can bring to a relationship. Present yourself in the best light possible and definitely tell your good points. What do you value about yourself and your life? Try to convey this to the reader. 4) Tell about your interests, hobbies, favorite activities. 5) Tell about your goals, dreams, hopes for the future and what you want to accomplish in life. 6) Do not tell about your aches, pains, heartaches, chronic illnesses, family misfortunes, life tragedies, relatives in prison. 7) Do not talk about exspouses, or previous relationships. 8) Try to write just to those who want to hear from a person in your location or your age group? 9) Always include your name and mailing address on the outside or the letter we will forward. That way if the person has moved and not given us a new address, you will get the letter back and can use it to forward another letter free. Plus we can update our files. (Continued on page 2)


That place exists –

Guaranteed protection

n these days of economic collapse, terrorist attacks, plagues and epidemics, cancer, heart disease, accidents, murder, rape, and general catastrophe, wouldn't it be good to have a place of guaranteed safety you could go to and bring your entire family with you? There is such a place but you don't get there overnight. It is a faith journey that you make one day at a time into God's promise and His provision. The map is found in Psalm 91. Make this Psalm your daily meditation and recitation for yourself and your family. Read it outloud, putting your name and the names of your family members into the promises. Your part is to read it, say it outloud, meditate on it, and build it into your thought life. God's part is to do the rest, bringing every promise of this Psalm into manifestation in your life. This Psalm promises protection from war, disease epidemics, criminal activity, terrorists, natural disasters, the entire range of dangers and evil that we may face on the earth today. Study it


verse by verse, read it in several different versions of the Bible, look up the meanings of the words, and do not neglect to read it aloud daily. You can download a free teaching message about this Psalm by a woman named Peggy Joyce Ruth who has studied it for more than 30 years. Her website is Here is Psalm 91: 1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. 3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. 4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. 5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. 8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. 9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; 10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. 11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. 12 They shall bear thee up

What can you give? We received a letter from a single man recently who said he had been featured in several singles magazines all over the country and had not yet received a satisfactory response to his personal ad. When I looked at his ad, I saw the problem. He had listed everything he wanted from a woman including that she be

Instead of acting on feelings –

Act on who you are

A person who is truly born again desires to do what God says but doesn't always feel like it. Our feelings have been corrupted by our old lives before we came to Christ. Now that we are in Christ, we have His promise that our spirits have been totally changed (2 Cor. 5:17) and have become like Him. Galatians 5:22 says that love is a part of the fruit of the Spirit. This is specifically speaking of the Holy Spirit; but our

new man was born of the Spirit, so it has to be true that God's love has been shed abroad in our spirits too. We do have God's love in our new man. Our feelings are not automatically changed, however. Our feelings will continue to act like they were taught to act until we subdue them and bring them under the control of our spirit man. It is not hypocritical to act in love when you don't feel it. It is actually hypocritical to

in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. 13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. 14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. 15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. 16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation. King James Version (KJV)

act on what you feel instead of who you really are in Christ Jesus. God's kind of love is a choice that you make on the basis of what God said, and then act on it in faith until it becomes a reality in your spirit, soul, and body. -- Andrew Wommack

“financially secure.” Yet he had not mentioned any of the benefits he was willing or able to give her, except his lovely self. No one is attracted to an ad that lists all the qualifications the other person must measure up to. Focus on selling yourself and your good qualities in your ad. Ask yourself, what do I have to offer another human being that would make them want me? Be honest with yourself. Long term relationships are about serving another person, not being served. Serving self interests will not support a marriage or even a friendship. Love lays down its life for the other person. If you don’t have anything to offer, rethink your reasons for wanting a relationship in the first place. And then see if you can develop some qualities that will nurture another human being, thereby making you extremely attractive as a potential partner.

The secret of changing ourselves In a recent article, Pastor Joseph Prince talks about our inability to change ourselves by sheer will power. “Have you ever tried to break a bad habit on your own? You probably found that when you tried to stop it by sheer willpower, you saw improvement for a while, and then bounced back to square one. Worse, you found yourself binging on the very thing that you were trying not to do. And your condition is worse than before you started your 'I'm going to quit' program! The changes were temporary

because it was you doing it.” Prince says it is only by allowing the Lord to work in us that true change can be manifested. (Philippians 2:13 “…for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.”) Prince tells of a church member who resolved to quit smoking. He kept telling himself “Where there's a will there's a way.” And so he put his own will power to work. Through a mighty struggle with his flesh, he could quit for a couple of weeks. But then in a moment of weakness, he would

You’ve tried everything else! You’ve tried everything else — alcohol, drugs, cigarets, sex, food, bars, nightclubs, cars, loud music, hobbies, careers, entertainment, astrology, fortunetellers, eastern philosophies, sports, health foods, strange diets, psychiatrists, drug and alcohol rehab, counseling, new age fads. . . .religion . . . . . . You may even have tried church. Why not try Jesus? You can make the decision now. Pray this prayer out loud — from your heart. “God in Heaven, I come to You today because Your Word says: . . him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out (John 6:37). Therefore, I know you will not cast me out, but you will take me in. “You said in Your Word:. . . whosoever, shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved (Rom. 10:13). I am calling on Your Name, so I know you will save me now. “You also said: . . . if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Rom. 10:9,10) “I believe in my heart that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that He became my substitute on the Cross, dying for my sins and that He was raised from the dead and lives forevermore. I repent of my sin and receive the gift of God’s salvation in Jesus Christ. I thank you, Father, that I receive forgiveness and the gift of eternal life and am now a new creation in Christ (John 3:16; John 3:3, 2 Cor. 5:17). Amen.”

smoke another cigarette and fall back full force into his old habit, caught again like an animal in a trap. But then this man turned his life over to God and began to learn about God's grace, Prince says the man “told God, 'I realize that I cannot stop smoking. I cannot, but You can break my habit, Lord.' And every time he lit up, he would say, 'Lord, I am trying to stop smoking, but I cannot. I am trusting You.' He would even say, 'I am still righteous because of Jesus' blood.'” Through trusting the Lord to break his habit and

Tips for getting better replies (continued from page 1) 10) Remember that your forwarding fee and stamp pays for us to address the letter and remail it to the address we have on file for that person. It does not guarantee a response, although we encourage everyone who receives a letter to reply. 11) In addition to your name and mailing address, include a phone number so the person has the option of calling instead of just writing back to you.

Success stories Dear Singles Scene, Thanks kindly for your excellent Christian service! Please discontinue my ad as I have now met the girl of my dreams! Thanks again. M39666 - GA Dear Sandra, Thanks so much for your publication. I have run an ad off and on for 15 plus years. I think I've finally found someone and I want all the other ladies to not give up. Sometimes it takes time to find Mr. Right. Good luck to all. M.M. (MD) Dear Singles Scene, Enclosed is my check for another year of Singles Scene/ Spirit & Life.

Lord and trusted the Lord to set him free from his bondage to cigarettes. This same process works for any bondage in our lives. Maybe you are not a smoker. Maybe your weakness is food, alcohol, drugs, pornography, or something else. Prince says, “When you receive the grace of God to do for you what you cannot do, you will experience effortless and permanent change on the inside, which in turn changes your actions on the outside.” Start by turning your life over to Jesus, calling Him Lord, and telling Him, “Lord, Jesus, I give myself and my life to You. I yield myself to You body, soul, and spirit. Do the work in me that you want to see accomplished.” Then as you gain your freedom, give Him the praise, the glory, and the honor for it. Because you know it was not by your own efforts. But it was by His grace working within you. Prince says, “It is God who removes your old 'want to's' and gives you new ones.” Joseph Prince pastors a large church in Singapore and has a daily program on TBN. His first book is Destined to Reign. The secret to effortless success, wholeness, and victorious living. Visit his website at — Sandra Turner

Judgement on America? In the Old Testament, God’s judgment was poured out on both individuals and nations. In the New Testament, God’s judgment was poured out on Jesus. That is the nearly-toogood-to-be-true news of the Gospel. We no longer get what we deserve; we get what Jesus paid the price for, if we will only believe. Before I understood this, I would say, “If God doesn’t judge America, He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.” Now I say, “If God judges America, He will have to apologize to Jesus.” Understanding what Jesus did completely changes our perspective. --Andrew Wommack

Find your completion in Him Many people are in financial debt today because they are trying to find their security, identity and esteem in material things, instead of in Christ. So they end up buying things that they don’t need to impress people who really don’t care... Beloved, being caught in this destructive habit and debt cycle is not God’s heart for His precious children. Let’s understand that having more things doesn’t complete us. Only Jesus can fill that vacuum. So find your security and completion in Christ. You have a treasure in you, One far more precious than anything money can buy. Anchor your security and identity in Jesus and delight yourself in Him alone! – Joseph Prince

He will command the blessing on you The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses… Deuteronomy 28:8

When Jesus walked on earth, He had no bank account or Visa card. Yet, He was rich, lacking nothing. He had whatever He needed for Himself as well as for the people around Him. When they needed healing, He provided it. (Matthew 12:15) When they needed food, He provided it. (Matthew 14:13–21) As long as they had Him, they had whatever they needed... Likewise, when you have Jesus, you have an anointing within that makes you rich, even though in the natural, when you look at your finances, there may not be much. God Himself has promised that He will command the blessing on you in your storehouses. Notice that He said “storehouses”. This means that He will command the blessing on your bank accounts, investment plans and everywhere that you put your money! Your storehouses will be blessed because when God commands the blessing, the blessing has no choice but to come on your storehouses... – Joseph Prince

mong traditional churches there is much resistance to the message of God’s grace that is now becoming so popular among believers in the finished work of Jesus Christ. Many have based their beliefs on a mixture of grace and law, teaching that when we are saved, we are forgiven of our sins, but then we have to keep ourselves clean by asking for and receiving forgiveness for every sin we commit thereafter. There are multiple questions here. Can we confess every sin we commit, known and unknown? If we commit a sin and die without confessing it do we go to hell? Do we really believe Ephesians 2:8-9 that says we are saved by grace, the free gift of God so that no man can boast. What is sin anyway? Romans 14:23 says whatever is not of faith is sin. Is worry a sin? If we have to constantly examine ourselves to confess every sin and receive forgiveness, what do we do about Hebrews 10:14 that says, “For by a single offering He has forever completely cleansed and perfected those who are consecrated and made holy.” Instead of promoting and ministering life to their congregations by pointing them to the Lord Jesus Christ and His finished work, many are still preaching the ministry of death and condemnation according to 2 Cor. 3:7 without going on to 2 Cor. 3:18 which says we are changed into His image when we behold the Lord Jesus Christ. They continually bombard listeners

with the problem instead of the solution. We need to behold the Lord and His life instead of the law which offers only death and condemnation. We are living in a new covenant with new and better promises. Heb. 10:16-18. This is the agreement (testament, covenant) that I will set up and conclude with them after those days, says the Lord: I will imprint My laws upon their hearts, and I will inscribe them on their minds (on their inmost thoughts and understanding),17 He then goes on to say, And their sins and their lawbreaking I will remember no more.18 Now where there is absolute remission (forgiveness and cancellation of the penalty) of these [sins and lawbreaking], there is no longer any offering made to atone for sin. Much opposition to the message of grace comes from misunderstanding. If we are required to confess every sin to stay saved, that would just be another law that we cannot keep, like the ten that Moses gave us. It makes us sin conscious, always looking for sin and being condemned and burdened down by it because in our natural selves, in our flesh, we will never find the end of it.

Do we repent, which means to change our beliefs and our actions or behaviors? Of course. As we behold Him and ask Him to make the righteousness He has given to us more and more real, our behaviors will change. Right believing leads to right doing. He corrects us through the spirit, leading us in paths of righteousness. As we stay “in Him” by faith, we walk in the light as He is in the light. That is the solution and the remedy for any sin or wrong behavior. Stay in Him by faith. Is it possible to have a spirit man that is one with the Lord, pure and clean, and still have a conscience, a sin consciousness, that condemns us? Yes. But 1 Cor. 1:30 says “But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.” It is only by looking to the Word of God for truth, meditating on it, and being transformed by it that we will come to the realization of what He has done for us and who we really are in Him. – Sandra Turner

Only looking to Jesus and the Word of God, instead of to the law and our own works, will lead us into a life of victory and freedom.
