Have you no wish for others to be saved?  Then you are not saved yourself.  Be sure of that.”   Charles Spurgeon

Street Witnessing 101  

 

     In Matthew chapter 19 verses 17-22 we see that Master Evangelist showing us how to deal with a proud, self-righteous person.  A typical lost person.  Now Jesus’ approach is noticeably different from modern evangelism.  When the man asked how he could obtain eternal life, Jesus did not ask,   “Would you like to have the assurance that if you die tonight you would go straight to heaven?  You can have that confidence right now simply by acknowledging that you have sinned against God, and by trusting in the finished work of the cross.  Would you like me to lead you in prayer right now so that you can have that assurance?”  Instead, our Savior pointed him to the Law so that he could recognize his sin.  Biblical evangelism is always “law to the proud, grace to the humble.”  John Newton said, “My grand point in preaching is to break the hard heart and to heal the broken one.”

     This young man is a prime example of someone who is not born again.  He had no understanding of the word “good.”  Jesus reproved him, then gently gave his five horizontal Commandments; those dealing with his fellow man.  When the man revealed his self-righteousness, Jesus showed him that in his vertical relationship with God he had transgressed the First of the Ten Commandments.  God was not foremost in his life.  The rich young ruler loved his money, and the Scriptures make it clear that we cannot serve God and mammon (money).  The Law brought him “the knowledge of sin.”

     In the way most Christians today share the Gospel, Jesus failed because He did not get a “decision.”  However, heaven doesn’t rejoice over “decisions.”  It reserves its rejoicing for repentance, and there can be no repentance without a God-given knowledge of sin—and that, according to the Bible, can only come by the Law.  Romans 7:7 (Also read Mark 10:17 & John 4:7)

     The question I have for the reader is this:  How can we use the Law of God as Jesus did, if we do not know the Law of God?  Can you name ALL the Ten Commandments?  Top researchers tell us that over 80% of all confessing Christians cannot name half of them.  We are losing many of our Christian children because of the way they were brought to salvation.  Repeat this prayer, say this confession, make a decision.  Remember, heaven only rejoices over a repentant sinner.  Not decisions.

     I challenge you this month to learn the Law of God and then go out and use it the way our Master did.  Wouldn’t that be awesome?  If you are having trouble, please call me.  I am available for teaching evangelism classes.  In these classes, we will not only learn how to witness as Jesus did, but we will also go out to the local mall or store and DO IT!  Evangelism…

Jesus style!  If you are looking for some resources, may I suggest “Way of the Master” by Ray Comfort.

     I close with this quote, “The diver plunges to find pearls, and we must accept any labor or hazard to win a soul.” -  Charles Spurgeon

Until the nets are full,  Mark

 

 

Quotes and other little tid bits……

 

“I have no more personal friends at school.  But you know what?  I am not going to apologize for speaking the name of Jesus.  I am not going to justify my faith to them, and I am not going to hide the light that God has put into me.  If I have to sacrifice everything, I will.  I will take it.  If my friends have to become my enemies for me to be with my best friend Jesus, than that’s fine with me.”  Rachel Scott, Columbine martyr

 

“If a man’s life at home is unworthy, he should go several miles away before he stands up to preach.  When he stands up, he should say nothing.”  Charles Spurgeon

Jesus said, “All power is given unto Me in heaven and earth.  Go you therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:  and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” Matthew 28:18-20

 

     What are you waiting for?  To know this and to say you have been reborn, how does it hold that Christians and pastors do nothing?  You might say, what do you mean, do nothing?  We send some money to the missions, we have wonderful committee meetings, we give food to the local pantry, and we are involved in all the mercy ministries, but to know what to do and do not do it, is it not said to be a sin by God?  As children’s souls are at risk of going to hell for eternity and children are murdered daily, do you think it will be a good idea to hang on to the thought that you will tell Jesus you fed the hungry, clothed the naked, while children went to hell?  Will Jesus tell many sleeping Christians to go over with the goats, that He does not know you?   

     I judge none of your hearts. Jesus has given me a gift to love you, but you must judge yourself, before Jesus does.  I do judge out of love, your actions or lack of.  Look around you; do you not understand the times at all?  Are you willing to hear a prophetic warning, or do you just want your best life now?  Do you want the truth, or just to feel good? 

     Every pastor and priest that does not tell his flock to get their children out of the government schools is sinning and putting themselves at risk of going to hell for eternity.  Every elder that does not warn the pastor and the people about getting out of the government schools is sinning and putting themselves at risk of going to hell for eternity.  Every Christian sitting in the pews that does not warn the pastor and elders and the people setting in the pews to get their children out of the government schools is putting them at risk of going to hell for eternity. 

     The government school, yes government, because they are no longer public, as they indoctrinate the children in an ungodly and pagan environment full of lies, and socializing them to be good little comrades.  Even though it was never meant biblically to put our children into a public school, at one time they at least tried to keep God a strong part of the education of the child so that they could recognize the counterfeit leaders we have in our government today, and would quickly put them out of service to the people. 

     Jesus told you to “Seek first HIS kingdom” and those going to His kingdom will love God with all their hearts, minds, souls, and strength, and love their neighbor as themselves.  Do not say that you love Jesus if you are putting the children at risk for eternity in an indoctrination system that is against God, family, and country.  

     Please, pastors, elders, and Christians do not deceive yourselves. Your children are at great risk when attending a government k-12 and a government college.  I know that many have made this Sacred Cow an Idol, and those that understand the urgency for the children must pray for those with strongholds that keep them from seeing and hearing.
Love and prayers in Christ to each of you*** Gregory
