In 1995, when he was 78 years old, he said: "It is high time for being active.
There is no retired state, no unemployment, no retirement age, no passivity.
There is no sleeping!"
At another place he writes:
In my Bible there is an important verse saying:
"no one is discharged in time of war."
(Ecclesiastes 8:8) Now there is a war!
The closer Jesus's return is, the stronger the struggle is.
It is like at His first
coming, when he was on the Earth, there were plenty of people who were possessed
by the devil, and a multitude of demons. Now the situation is the same again.
Since there is a war, there is no holiday." (See Letter to the Ephesians.)
He believed that in God's work there is no retirement age,
and he continued to preach the Good News with the strength and power received from Him.
"I tell you these because we are all particularly blessed people. We live at an
age when time achieved a terribly high speed. Life became shorter, because the
events got this speed. Exactly because of this, since very time is very short; we have to use up every minute of every hour.
Today the world lives a prodigal life.
People are wasting themselves, time, strength, love, everything, money, their
goods. So many of them are burning from the inner flames of sin.
We are given to feel
the warmth of God's love. I cannot give it to you, but - God willing - a short book is going to be published about my life.
Its title will be:
"WITH YOUR PILLAR OF FIRE AMONG ICE MOUNTAINS".
Its main thoughts are gathered, and I cannot express its message in another way,
just as "PILLAR OF FIRE", that was leading Israel,
that gave light, warmth and
brightness to them, while they had to walk between pagan, wild tribes.
Then, anyone who gets saved will experience, what kind of "ICE MOUNTAINS"
we are between. It's like I enter the school to hold the faith lesson, and a
child is shouting to me: the one with the gown entered, and he laughes. I have to
look back at him with love. If I look at him with hatred, then I lost my Lord's
authority. Man can see the huge clefts, and the forces of the darkness.
When the Lord Jesus came to the Earth, all demons were particularly active.
There were never before so many obsessed people. And now, that His second
coming is very near, the demons are also working overtime again.
They are pushed to
work in an exaggerated way. The angels of all the demons try to catch as many
people as possible, even the believers. The rest are already in their hands. They
try to rule us. Just like in old times Amalek raided and killed the last part of
the migrating Israel who were in the back, tired, and weak. Although God punished him for that, but he avenged.
However, today it is like this: the enemy keeps the prayer worriors at ease, prayerless, and cut off from God.
Thus, they are dead, lifeless Christias.
I have said it many times, therefore there is no need to say it again what a pain it is that this small Hungary is the first on the list of suicide,
and is the very first on the list of suicide
of under 16 years of age. We are far before the other countries. The next two Countries have much less suicides than we do.
We have bread, we have
clothes, we have a warm homes. Who hasn't, receives.Yet, no desire to live.
Do you remember when I often quoted the song of young people used to sing in a choire:
"It is good to be everywhere, but the best is to be nowhere."
Well, yes, nowhere without Christ."
From 1995 he regularly preached the Word of God at the Jewish Mission in
Budapest also, called Midnight Call Ministries.
While on the short-wawe Radio Monte Carlo, his preaching of the Word reached
the territories that were closed until that time from the Good News.
In addition, his letter and
cassette mission was extended from New-Zeland to Australia. Catholic priests
picked up on his crystal clear word explanations, and made contact with him first
by letter, and later on personally too.
I made a vow while still in prison, to God saying:
"If He sets me free, I will be a brother to and
member of, all communities of healthy, Bible based, registerd or not registerd;
and I will go everywhere I am called to.
"I am a friend to all who fear
you, to all who follow your precepts." (Psalm 119:63)
Therefore I will visit Presbiterian/reformed, Lutheran, methodist, baptist, and other Christian churches,
and even other congregations, where I am called in name of Jesus!"
And he, he kept his vow made in Siberia tirelessly.
He held Evangelisation
weeks at different points of the country without considering any denominational
limitations, anywhere they invited him. Midnight Call Ministries and News from
Israel published several his books, and here at this mission the Lord lead him meet
his second wife; Piros Erzsebet. They got married following the guidance of
God, and from that time on, they served the Lord together in Spirit and Truth until
until he was called him home, on 10 September 1998.
All the glories to the Merciful Lord!
Mrs Erzsebet Piros Zimanyi continues the service. She is the steward of her
husband's almost 2000 Word preachings, 25 books, cassettes, CDs and the
"How many believers have reached the Heavenly goal!
They were faithful, they persisted, and their fight ended.
Oh, Jesus, be blessed for these saints!
- You were eternally their rock, their castle,
while the big struggle took place down here.
You were light, star on dark nights.
- If only all your children fought their struggle as faithful,
couraggeous as these winners!
Let us sing with them: Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!"
And now a little exert from the book "WITH YOUR PILLAR OF FIRE
AMONG ICE MOUNTAINS", the life of Jozsef Zimanyi:
I am the most valuable in the eye of Who had been fighting for me in big
struggle for six hours and stayed there faithfully on the nails - taking
possession of me in this way. He had chosen me before I was born, and
encouraged, and comforted me all through my life. My task is to be unconditionally
obedient to God; and if I obey His will, then I can entrust the rest to Him. God
disciplined me, and when time came to write the letter to Stalin; I had
no fear any longer. There isn't a better thing than to obey God in the good days.
On my thirtieth birthday I was just praying beside one of my children's bed and thanked
God for my life, when people
came for me. Two huge KGB lads were standing behind me. ...
I did not see my wife, my children for 92 months. ... I spent 8 months in prison in
Beregszasz, then in Ungvar. Then we left for approaching "ICE MOUNTAINS", with
"PILLAR OF FIRE" leading us. His fire coloumn was providing
light to me all through the way, all the time, and was melting the ice around me.
And I saw this pillar of fire in the bright stars shining through the northern lights too.
These are not invented stories, these really happened.
God decided the way my life should go, and I did not allow the destructive forces to disturb that.
Instead, his tender thoughts and his protecting will of His attentive love surrounded me through it all.
He even pointed out to me that I was in multiple danger and could not take care of myself; it is Him who takes care of me.
Therefore I give thanks to Him to this day that I could experience these rescues, and that He "bended to me"
with His love; every day. For, it was He who immediately called my attention to the dangers, and cancelled all the scheme
of the destroyer.
Who has such a Lord as we, the followers of Jesus, have?
Where is so much love, so much patience, and who is going to have so much inheritance as we will?
We inherited by the legator's death, and we are going to live with Him
together. For which God be blessed forever."
