BIBLICAL EVANGELISM


I pray that you will hear what God has given me to say, and that you will understand and that He will open these words to you.

Do you really love and fear God! Are you still walking in sin or are you truly walking in repentance before the Lord and living in holiness or are you still walking in the flesh...Do you steal, do you covet what you cannot afford to buy, do you watch shows and movies that glorify the Lord or do they cause you to lust and walk in sin, what about the music that you listen to, would your life glorify the Lord, in His Presence, or would you have to hide from Him...I need you to pray about this article and examine your hearts before the Lord, ask Him to search deep and to expose any sins that He reveals to you, and then repent and trust in Him...

 

You have heard the Ten Commandments, but you really don’t care.

You believe in cheap grace.

 You believe that God will “just forgive you”.

You believe that God will not hold you accountable because “He is all forgiving”.

You believe that because “he loves you” that you can even get away with hating your brother or even murder.

You really do not fear God.

Why?

Because nobody has ever taught you to fear God, Jehovah, The Almighty One, the Creator of the universe.

Why?

Because most ministers, in churches, or bible studies, never talk or preach about the judgment of God, or hell or even the wrath of God…

All we hear about is that “God loves you and has a "wonderful" plan for your life” or “how Jesus can fix all of your problems and make you so happy and content in your life”.  This is a lie. God does have a plan, but it may not be wonderful.

Do you know that God has a plan for you to be saved through repenting and trusting Jesus Christ alone to save you? But if you reject God’s plan, then you will be damned to hell for-ever.

God gave you the Ten Commandments as a guide line, a set of rules to show you that you cannot live up to His holiness and perfection. His law is a schoolmaster to force you to the foot of the cross.

To show us all, how evil and corrupt, we all are. Not just you, but all of us…

God’s plan was to show us that only by repenting and trusting in Jesus Christ to save us, could we be saved.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that who so ever believes in Him, “should” not perish but will have ever lasting life.

Here is the catch that nobody ever talks about, or preaches about, “should” but not always “will”. You can still walk away from Him, and still go to hell because you rejected Him, and His plan of salvation.

You have been taught that if you say a little prayer, “that you are saved”, and that now you can go out and live like “hell”. You really think that a little prayer, that you really don’t even believe, will save you. This is not even found in the Word of God, this is another lie from hell, yet 90 % of the church believes this lie, and they will all end up in Hell because of it.

You have also been taught “just believe in Jesus and you will be saved”. You can believe all you want too and still end up in hell. This is a lot like a parachute, you can believe in it all you want to, but until you trust it to save your life, by putting it on, cinching up the belts and actually jumping out of the plane and pulling the rip cord, now this is trust. You can believe in it all you want too, put it under your arm or stuff it back under the seat, but until, you actually trust it to save you, you are still lost.

Lots of verses in the Word of God can be taken out of context and we believe what is being taught to us, but until we take what God has given to us, in order of what and how, He designed for us to follow, then we are in trouble, if we follow man and what he says, we may end up lost.

2nd Tim 2:15 Study to show yourself approved to God. A workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

God says in the Word of God, that you must repent and trust Jesus Christ to save you and to be baptized in water and to be baptized with the fire of the Holy Ghost…

Repentance means turning away from your sins, walking away from sin and following His holiness.

Do you understand, what the Ten Commandments were given to us for? They show us that we have lied, stolen, coveted, lusted, used God’s name as a curse word, they show us that we do not put God first in our lives, above everything. We are to love and honor Him, there are no excuses… One sin can throw us into hell, if we have not repented and trusted in the Lord to save us.

The Lord God, had a plan of how to get saved and for many years, men of God were obedient to the plan and preached it to the lost, and many were saved biblically, but somebody evil came up with a short cut, here is what happened…

Men have folded parachutes for a very long time according to the manufacturer’s directions, each fold has to be perfect, it is a very slow painstaking job, but if followed correctly, it works. Many people put on a parachute and they jump out of planes and they make it, time after time to the ground safely.

But, someone came up with a short cut and parachutes could be folded in just a few minutes, everyone was thrilled, and everybody started folding them the quick way, and for a while, everybody was happy…

But, then reports started coming in, that 90% of the parachutes were not opening, 9 out of 10 people were being killed, because the parachutes were not opening correctly…

Everyone was horrified and sickened by what they were hearing, and immediately stopped folding the fast way, and they went back to the manufacturer’s instructions, they went back to the proven ways.

 But many rejected the truth, and they said, but we have proof that our ways work and we want to do our fast ways because it is easier and people like it and we are not going to change for any reason, so leave us alone…

The fast folders are a lot like the church, get people to say the “sinners prayer”, no repentance, no trust, just a better way of life and happiness, the short cut people, are happy, that people said a prayer and they got a new notch in their belt and new people to join their “social club”, who over the years will fill up their churches and give lots of money to their building funds, and pay their salaries, and help to build their kingdoms and not God’s kingdom. Everybody is excited; and everyone thinks that they are saved…

Everyone, But God is not pleased, in fact, he is very angry, this is not the plan that He gave us, this is a lie from the devil and man bought it “hook line and sinker”.

The problem is that these people are just as lost, as to those, who they are preaching to, and when you go to them, they don’t believe or care, because this is how they were taught, the bible schools and cemeteries –seminaries, teach the false doctrines of men and devils and nobody cares enough to search out the truth.

2nd Tim 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

 They have a form of godliness, but it does not line up with the word of God and now men will end up in hell because of their lies and deceitfulness… and everybody who believed the lie is damned and on their way to hell, because they listened to the pastors instead of studying the word of God for themselves and holding the ministers accountable for what they preached in their sermons…

Nobody was shown the Ten Commandments. Nobody understood what sin was, nobody was preaching about repentance and trust, but the word of God does, but we are too busy following a lie and we were all on our way to hell…

God’s plan is to show us the Law, the Ten Commandments and how sin separates us from God.

God hates sin, all sin. Even a small sin and God cannot look at us; we are evil in His sight…

God loved us so much He sent His son to be a blood sacrifice, His penalty for sin is death, but the blood of Jesus Christ, is God’s payment for our sins, if we repent and trust in Jesus Christ. Without the blood of Christ and His resurrection from the dead, we are damned to hell.

It does not matter to God, how good you think you are. In God’s sight, without the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, you are evil and going to hell.

You must make a choice, God says: if you do not follow Jesus Christ, then you have made the choice, you are of the devil and you will go to hell for ever.

Listen to God and His word.

If you will repent and turn away from your sins and trust in the Lord, you will be saved, but you must continue to walk in Him daily, hour by hour, minute by minute, this is the hardest road that you will ever follow. You must do this with all of your heart; everything in you must glorify the Lord. You must not waiver or fall, if you walk away and deny the Lord, you will be damned…

You must love the Lord, with all of your mind heart and soul. This is not a game; this is the hardest race that you will ever do. But here is a really great promise from the Lord, when you are truly His, He said that He will never leave or forsake you; this means that if you learn to listen to Him, that you will hear His voice in your heart and mind, but you must learn to be quiet and still.

He will walk with you and talk with you, you are never alone, He is always with you, leading you and guiding you…

When you are his, and you cry out to Him, He will listen and guide you…

These are promises to those who are called by Him, to those who He has called…

But, if there is unrepentant sin in your life, He will not hear your voice, you must live in constant repentance and follow only Him, For He is God…

You will continue to grow closer to Him daily, He says “My sheep hear my voice.

This will always be a growing relationship…

Christian believers will fall into sin, we all make mistakes, but if we confess our sins and repent, He will hear us when we cry out to Him…

The ungodly will dive into sin and stay there, unless they repent, God will not hear their cries because they are separated from Him...

Yes, you will still make mistakes, but if you are following the Lord, He will lift you up and sustain you…

We must go to the lost and present the gospel correctly and biblically...
