American Minute with Bill Federer



300,000 miles on horseback, from the Atlantic to the Appalachians,
from Maine to the Gulf of Mexico, for 45 years, he spread the gospel.


This was Francis Asbury, Methodist Circuit riding preacher who was
born AUGUST 20, 1745.

When the Revolution started, he refused to return to England:

"I can by no means agree to leave such a field for gathering souls to
Christ as we have in America."

He befriended Richard Bassett, a signer of the U.S. Constitution, who
converted, freed his slaves and paid them as hired labor.

Francis Asbury dedicated the first African Methodist Episcopal Church
and met personally with George Washington, congratulating him on his
election.

By the time he died, the Methodist Church in America had grown from
300 members to over 200,000.

Unveiling the Equestrian Statue of Francis Asbury in Washington,
D.C., 1924, President Calvin Coolidge stated:

"Our government rests upon religion

It is from that source that we derive our reverence for truth and
justice, for equality and liberty...

This circuit rider spent his life making stronger the foundation on
which our government rests."

Coolidge concluded:

"Francis Asbury is entitled to rank as one of the builders of our
nation."

For thus saith the Lord of hosts: Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land: and I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come, and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts. (God shook the earth once, when He gave us the Ten Commandments at Sinai. The next time He will shake not only the whole earth, but the entire universe! Are you ready? Only by putting your faith in the Lord Jesus will you escape this terrible shaking!)
Haggai 2:6 and 7
