America

Posted: December 7, 2011 in Uncategorized

I just listened to the first two messages on America our promised land by Duane Sheriff and it is a good one.I will be doing a video on it in January and hope people will tune in and watch it. part of what he says is that God doesn’t just love indiviuals but he loves everybody and wants to bless nations not just indiviual people and I know that I will be mocked and criticized for what the videos may contain and that is ok I know what God has put on my heart and what he wants me to do and watch this I’M GONNA DO IT. It’s like the conflict between the outlaw motorcycle club and the warllocks when the warlocks first started riding they were approached and told they couldn’t do certain things and the found said WATCH THIS WE’RE GONNA DO IT .and they did despite the consequences they have managed to do their thing no matter if anyone liked it or not and in a way Christians need to do the same.The government sees us as radical people and tries to silence the church and the church cowers to the government because they fear what they may lose. If we as Christians have to go under ground and do our thing as the disciples did in the biblical days then well I say befriend the motorcycle clubs and get them converted and make disciples of them and they can show us ways to stay under the radar and still do what God has commissioned us to do in Mark 28 verse 18 where we as Christians we spacifically commissioned to go out unto all the nations and teach the gospel making disciples of everyone we run into, and that my friends is just as important if not more important today than in the biblical times. so think on this as you read it and until next time keep the rubber side down and may God bless .

today’s message was evangelism

Posted: December 4, 2011 in Uncategorized

What does it really mean? How do we do this and make it effective? what does the Bible say about evangelism? I am going to label these questions A,B, and C.

A) what is evangelism or what does it mean to evangelize, I am going to turn not to a dictionary but to the bible to see what it actually says in the bible. Basically it simply means to preach. What do you do when you preach if done properly you teach people how to apply what you preach or teach to their lives they inturn teach it or preach it to others and it snowballs hopefully at least that is the desired effect. Because what you said to one person gets told to another and so on then you not only reached one person you have reached numerous people through speaking of the gospel to just one. This is the desired work God wants us to do on earth. It is to make disciples of people through evangelizing in order to get people ready for the kingdom.

B)What does the Bible say about evangelism? In Acts 8 : 14-19 The apostles were in Jerusalem and heard that the Samirians received the word of God and thus sent Peter and John to pray and they laid hands on the Samaritans for it at this time was only the apostles who had the anointing of the HolyGhost and they gave it to the Samaritans by laying hands on them,when Simon saw this and the thepower of the Holy Ghost he offered them money to get this power and Peter said “thy money perish with thee.” He said this because Simon thought God’s power could be bought and in fact it cannot it can be received for free as long as you walk with God and obey his word. how ever this being said remember freedom is not free nor is God’s power and authority it was given to us by the death and Resurrection of his son Jesus that we are able to do this.
C) How can we make this evangelizing more effective? there are steps i learned it from national association of christian ministers it is an achronim called M.E.A.L.
Main idea, Evidence, Appeal and Link. you do the basic main idea, you figure out how it will appeal to people, provide Evidence to show how it will work and be able to Link to situations brought to us in today’s society then you will be effectively evangelizing and making disciples instead just making converts. This is what i learned through the message of today.
until next time keep the rubber side down and God bless
