well it’s an honor to have Marcus and Joni lamb with us they are true pioneers in Christian television and it’s wonderful to have you and you’ve got a correction for sure now in 200 million home over 100 million in the United States alone and 700 million worldwide Wow so the Lord has been good so you literally go all the way around the world yeah 24 hours a day with daystar and that’s wonderful that’s wonderful how did how did it start what was the what was the first thing that you know got you to say up I need to start a Christian television station in march of 1983 Joni and I had just been married six months we go to Israel for the first time and while we’re on the Mount of Olives the Lord spoke to me and he said go to montgomery alabama and build a Christian TV station not is an incredible thing because you’re standing where the Bible says Jesus is going to come back yes and he tells you to go to Montgomery which is a little bit off the beaten track for you wasn’t it yes you ever been there uh no at that time I had not been there but and I argued with God I said God why would you ask me to do something other than what I’m already doing your blessing what I’m doing so why would you ask me to do something different I don’t know how to build a Christian TV station and I don’t have a million dollars plus in cash to build a Christian TV station he didn’t argue with me he just repeated his assignment go and build that station and what did you say to that well you know I I believed that he had heard from the Lord and even though I didn’t understand or have any idea what I was why would you think that because a lot of people wouldn’t understand what made you think he really heard from the Lord well you know we traveled as young evangelist for a couple of years before we actually moved to Montgomery so and he had been in ministry since he was 15 years of age and went to college is 16 graduated at 19 from Lee University and had you know conducted all these revivals so I had already had my worldview expanded from Greenville South Carolina where I was born and was able to watch him in services and pray for people and see people saved and filled with the spirit and people healed and miracles and all of that so I knew that he could hear from the Lord at that point I was just a girl who would sing a song and service or pray for people in the altar I had no intentions whatsoever being in front of the camera so I was like yes honey that’s great you going to do that I’ll stand with you and it’ll be awesome but they got tufted that I mean you were the story I heard you were six months pregnant and you’re trying to help him run electric lines to run a light grid as you’re building a studio you’re not even on the air yet you’re trying to get ready because you’re you could lose the license if you don’t start broadcasting so here you are in the heat of the summer yes and you’re running electric lines did that promise to God use me whatever come back to you it’s here it did I think that has come back so many times in my life because if God showed us everything that he wanted to do with our lives as it relates to our total surrender we probably run the other direction but that’s the thing about God when you’re in his will and you’re in his purpose you you have a piece about it and so with that even though we didn’t know what we were doing and no you can’t go to school to learn how to build a Christian television station we did start out with the black-and-white transmitter and cameras that came over on Noah’s Ark that look like boat anchors and we had all these volunteers and it really was the very very small beginning but yeah I remember that day I was I was probably about six and a half months pregnant and we needed to lift the ceiling because you know with television your lighting grid needs to be up and this was a lower ceiling and so we didn’t have any money cameras to see the light exactly exactly so we didn’t have anyone to to really help us with that we had a few volunteers and his dad was going to be coming to help us as well so he gets up on scaffolding and I’m pushing him around in this hot building and double decker said his cast afraid of heights there was no air conditioning in that room right Joanie’s pushing me and you learn the heat rises yes that’s right that’s hotter at the top of the room than it is you know it’s almost it you know I look around today at our studio and see what all God has done and it just makes me appreciate so much more what we have today because we know what it’s like to start with nothing and it’s just amazing to see what god has done those those early days were very important though I think it was important that we walk through montgomery that we lived there for seven years i don’t think we would have been prepared to go to dallas and eventually build a network had we not been there first well it’s almost like God wants to start very small you he wants to have everything’s a small seed yes and then he says okay just trust me if you had known what you were doing if you had known what it took to do television would you have started probably not cuz I don’t know it’s bigger than us you’d have known it’s impossible I think Gordon you’re just such a good point God wants us to be totally dependent on him yes and he wants to get all of the glory or whatever is accomplished true right now looking at what you’re doing now these do still see it that you’re totally dependent on him I know I do so many times I drive up on the grounds and I see all of it and I’m more than most people know what it took and I just thank God you did this and I’m so grateful that you allow us to be a part of it yes I am so totally dependent upon the Lord and I mean more so today than ever before because I know that it’s the Spirit of God that can speak through me to encourage someone who’s listening to give hope to say the right word you know and if I try to do that in and of myself i’m going to fall flat on my face but you know it’s it’s the spirit of god that is going to each out and touch people who are watching and and you know it’s just such a great honor and privilege but I I could not do it without him being with me I think you feel the same I tell people here at CBN it is the same as when we’re in the tiny station in Spratly street in Portsmouth Virginia where we literally prayed in every camera we prayed in every light bulb and pet prayed in every payroll it’s the same it’s just the zeros have changed yeah and and now I just sense with God’s challenging us to kick can we take it to yet another level and all the things that he’s built it’s all in preparation for us to say yes God let’s take it to this next level how do we reach the world today because that’s our call and I know it’s your call to you got your call on the mount of olives and it’s all about can we prepare the world for his coming can we hasten the coming of the king and that only happens when every nation every tribe every tongue here’s the good news and what he’s given us in these platforms is absolutely incredible yeah and it’s a great privilege to preach the gospel it really is unique little short story about a year ago an email came from a young lady in Tehran Iran mmm and she said dear Marcus and Joanie I watched a star often I’m not a Christian I’m a Muslim and I want to buy a DVD of one of the programs that Joanie had done because I want to share it with my fellow university students here in Tehran and Gordon it just so overwhelming to think that Muslims and our and Iran are watching and they’re even wanting to give money to share the gospel even though they’re not yet Christians so Jesus is up to something and I believe that there’s a spirit of acceleration because the coming of the Lord is so near yeah I just really feel it in my spirit we we we have to really put it in gear and and you look back on the amount of work and you know when when do we get a day of rest and but no it’s it’s time to really press in and the spirit is calling us to do that well anyway it’s an honor and privilege to have we’re out of time I can talk to you for about full half-hour but anyway if you want more they are going to be with us for our week of prayer and you can watch that on cbn.com you can also watch them on the Marcus and Joni show on day star all you have to do is check your local listings for times or go to daystar.com
