Join with friend of the ministry/podcast David Barton, founder and president of Wallbuilders, to celebrate both the birthday of the US Army and Flag Day.

Today is the anniversary of two significant days in American history: the birthday of the US Army, and Flag Day!

The Army was created by the Continental Congress on June 14, 1775. George Washington was elected Commander-in-Chief the next day and issued orders for the military, including one declaring: The blessings and protection of Heaven are at all times necessary…The General hopes and trusts that every officer and man will endeavor [to] live and act as becomes a Christian Soldier defending the dearest rights and liberties of his country.

The Army has continuously been recognized throughout American history. Such as by Frederick Douglass who reminded the nation: We must never forget that the loyal soldiers who rest beneath this sod flung themselves between the nation and the nation destroyers. [I]f the Star-Spangled Banner floats only over free American citizens in every quarter of the land…we are indebted to the unselfish devotion of the noble army who rest in these honored graves all around us.

General George Marshall also spoke about the United States’ mission during WWII:We are determined that before the sun sets on this terrible struggle, our flag will be recognized throughout the world as a symbol of freedom on the one hand and of overwhelming force on the other.

Flag Day commemorates June 14, 1777 when the Continental Congress passed a resolution establishing the look of the first national flag. The first Flag Day celebration occurred in 1885 as a school celebration in Wisconsin. The idea of honoring our flag spread across the country and President Woodrow Wilson eventually issued a 1916 presidential proclamation recognizing Flag Day. Since then, generations have continued to celebrate the American flag.

Today, let’s celebrate the American Army and all our military who so ably defend our flag, our God-given freedoms, and God-blessed nation!

Billy Graham Preaches About The Cross and Gives The Invitation That Led Millions To Christ

Billy Graham gave the invitation at the end of this video to millions around the world, and over 3.2 million people came to know Jesus during the crusades that Reverend Graham did all over the world.

I would be blessed to know if you made your decision to ask Christ into your life after watching this. Shoot me an email at ed@edbostonministries.com and let me know so that I can be praying for you!

The mammoth task requires thousands of volunteers in late November and December. Will you be one of them? There is an urgent need for more volunteers at our nearby Aurora location. You can come individually or bring a busload from your church or community.

Special Good Friday Prayer Service

Each night since March 18th (minus 1 night), Ed Boston Ministries has hosted an online Prayer Service in response to the National Emergency happening in the United States and around the world.

With this being Holy Week, we thought we would have a special Prayer Service on Good Friday at 7 pm eastern on the ministry Facebook page. The link there is www.facebook.com/edbostonministries. This service will be different than what we have been doing each night, so why not join us and help us observe Good Friday!

 

A New Year, A New Decade and a New Focus

A few moments to look back, but more importantly a look at the future.

Ed Boston Ministries has gone by many names and has been primarily a Chriatian podcast since the beginning back in 2008.

There have been political discussions, interviews, road trips, celebrity friends of the podcast, sermons preached, and so much more.

The first 12 years have served as a huge learning experience and it’s now time to move forward and seek God’s deeper will for this ministry.

With a new Decade here, the goal for this ministry is to be more bold for Christ.

What exactly does that mean? What will be different in 2020 than any other of the previous 12 years?

The focus is what will be different. In the past, the podcast has been the central part of the ministry. The podcast will continue, but you will hear less interviews and more specific Ed Boston Ministries original material.

There will be a church service each week at 7 pm eastern that will be simulcast on Facebook Live and YouTube.

The service will be designed to be the same as if you were actually in the church building.

A greeting, scripture readings, music, sermon, alter call, offering opportunities and communion on some occasions will be part of the service.

Many believe that we are living in the end times. Again, with that in mind, top focus needs to be on winning lost souls to Christ.

Another priority will be short 4-6 minute YouTube videos on relevant Christian topics. Pastors need to share their take issues that affect our Christian walk and that is what the plan is for these videos.

There will still be interviews, but the focus on them will be much less.

It’s a New Year, a New Decade and now there is a New Focus.
