What are you waiting for? If you are a genuine Christian, you can go with the Gospel NOW. Opportunities abound...next door, at Walmart, in the office, sitting at the mall, jogging in the park. Everywhere there are people who need the Lord. This blog is intended to inspire and motivate others to join the ranks of witnesses for Christ. May you answer HIS call today!
We need a revival of
Pentecostal power that will set a fire burning in the heart of every
believer………a fire that will create a passion and a vision for lost and dying
souls that are headed for hell.
Jesus said: The
harvest is great but the laborers are few; pray ye therefore the Lord of the
harvest that he would send forth laborers into his harvest….
I want to be one of
those laborers that step into the arena of this wicked world and pluck souls
from the edge of eternity.
-Once I led a man to the Lord who had
been dead 5 minutes before
-Once I gave the Gospel to Elvis
people it is too late. Yesterday you could have reached them, but today, it is
You know what would
keep our young people in church, and on fire for God… Let them get a vision for
the Lost… and become fearless witnesses for Christ.
We need a Pentecostal
revival that will shake up teenagers, young people… and turn them into
fire-brands for Christ… I know young people who have sold out to the Lord, been
filled with the Holy Ghost and become powerful witnesses for the Lord
But…all some young
people care about is knowing how to use two hands to send text messages, how to
set up a Facebook page, but they never give a thought about how to lead a soul
What if you had 5
minutes to tell a dying friend how to get saved… Would you know what to say?
We need a Pentecostal
revival that will stir not only young people, but middle aged people… and older
people and make them powerful, Holy Ghost anointed witnesses and soul winners…
You bear his name… do
you carry his flame?
His passion was for
souls…. He gave up everything to win souls… even his own life.
What would you give
up to win a soul? What have you ever done to win a soul? How can any Christian feel right in their
relationship with the Lord and have no interest in taking the Good News of the
Gospel to some lost person?
On one ministry
journey… we met a young Muslim man in a restaurant and had opportunity to give
him the Gospel…
sisters…. We have been commissioned…In John 20:21 Jesus
said:“As my father hath sent me, even
so send I you. Mark 16:15 sends us: Go ye into all the world and preach the
Gospel to every creature.
No believer is exempt
from the great commission.
world???" If that bothers you, how about one square mile around your house? Would you do that?)
Have you heard his
voice calling…. Like Isaiah: Also I
heard the voice of the Lord saying, Whom shall I send and who will go for us.
Then said I, here am I, send me.
He did not send us
without necessary power.
Acts 1:8 “Ye shall receive power after that the Holy
Ghost is come upon you and ye shall be witnesses unto me, both in Jerusalem,
and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”
The power of
Pentecost includes the power to witness and win the lost.
If you have received
the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and you are not a witness for Christ you are
My heart longs to
reach souls for the Lord. It all started when the Lord saved me at ten, and
then baptized me with His Spirit.
God gave me a burden
for souls, and I don’t think that should be so unusual. I think it should be an
integral part of every Christian’s life….
THE CHURCH IS NOT A SOCIAL CLUB,
BUT A SOUL-SAVING STATION
General William Booth, founder of the Salvation
find the worst ones, bring them to church…bring the drunks…bring the
prostitutes…Bring the addicts…and let them hear the Gospel and get saved.”
will give you a vision, a burden, a concern for the unsaved. Real revival has
always resulted in souls being saved.
Genuine revival in
our heart will make us soul winners.
YE SHALL RECEIVE POWER and YE SHALL BE WITNESSES!
In case you wondered about
my witness to Elvis Presley, allow me to explain. It was in a unique restaurant
where we were invited by a friend. It displayed abundant Elvis Presley memorabilia
including a life-sized standup cardboard cutout of this man of worldly fame. I
took advantage of the moment and stood in front of “him” holding out my open
Bible and began to openly give “him” the gospel message. He never moved. He did
not blink an eyelid. He gave no response, for he could not. Elvis Presley was
dead. It was too late for him to hear the message of salvation. Tomorrow it
will also be too late for many others to receive the glorious gift of
salvation. Let us take Christ the Living Hope to others around us while there
is still time!
...at Aldi’s, in a parking lot, at a
women’s fitness center, and in a bread store. Don’t miss the bread store
10:30 a.m. At Aldi’s
grocery store buying items for our church Christmas basket give-aways. A neat,
tall young man served me at the checkout.
From my well-supplied purse I pulled out the Jesus Story---in 16
languages on DVD. “Merry Christmas,” I told
him with a smile. “Here is a special gift for you…the Christmas Story for you
to enjoy.” He smiled back and took it seeming
very happy to get it.
10:40 a.m. Outside Aldi’s…pushing
cart to unload groceries at my car. I headed back to return my cart and get my
quarter back when I saw an Oriental looking lady leaving her car.
“Hi! Are you going to Aldi’s?”
“Would you like a cart?”
“Oh, I don’t want one. I don’t
have the quarter.”
“No… I want you to have mine.
Then you can collect the quarter for yourself when you are finished.”
Smiling and walking toward me. “Thank
you very much!”
I began to leave but then called
back to her. “Wait a minute! I have something for you. It’s the Christmas
Story. Merry Christmas! It is in Mandarin and Cantonese, as well as English and
She was surprised and readily
received the DVD.
I PRAY FOR EACH PERSON RECEIVING THESE CLEAR
PRESENTATIONS OF THE LIFE OF JESUS, FROM BIRTH TO RESURRECTION,
WITH AN ALTAR CALL AT THE END. LORD, SAVE THEM!
10:50 a.m. And now, as old
as I am… I still have been going to a ladies fitness center for exercise as
often as I can, so I don’t wind up stiff, and disabled. Bodily exercise does
profit at least a little!
And it was there as I was making
the rounds of the exercise circuit that I felt the Lord talk to me about a
certain lady there. She has some learning disability, but is so faithful to
exercise and show friendliness to everyone.
I told her I had something for
her when I was through and then gave her the Jesus Story DVD explaining that it
was in 16 languages so she could listen to all of them if she wanted to.
She was so excited that she went
around to every lady in the place and showed them the DVD with the large word
on the front, “JESUS,” exclaiming her thrill at getting it. Each lady looked at
it and made friendly comments.
Aha!!! This dear soul---unknown
to her--- was actually opening the way for me!
Next week I will bring enough of the DVD’s to give to each of them as Christmas
gifts!!! Thousands of people have been
saved as they see who Jesus really is. May many more find Him this Christmas Season.
11:15 a.m. Then… came the
part of my morning that thrilled me the most. We get really good bread from a
day-old bread store. Delicious rye with caraway seeds…yum...my favorite, then Cinnabon
thick, sweet, cinnamon bread, and little cherry and peach pies…all at low
prices! (No, I’m not on a diet!)
A lovely lady waited on me at the
counter and, you guessed it, I pulled out one more Jesus DVD and gave it to her
as a gift. She was elated and said she had been listening to the Christmas
story on her radio as she drove to work in the mornings.
The conversation led
to her enjoyment of certain Christian radio programs so I asked her,
did you become a Christian?” Her answer surprised me.
“Well, I’m getting there. I’m
almost there. I feel like ‘I’m getting closer. Maybe God sent you here.”
CAN YOU IMAGINE THE RUSH OF EXCITEMENT THAT BEGAN TO WHELM UP WITHIN
That’s what happens when a
witness and soul winner sees a tremendous door of opportunity open up before
them! I knew immediately that God had sent me to this store for this very
“What are you waiting for?”
“I don’t know,” she replied as
and earnestness swept over her face.
“How much longer do you think you should wait? Just look around you. Daily news points to
the soon coming of Jesus. Now is the time to settle things with God.”
“I know it,” she whispered,
staring intently at me and tears forming in her eyes.
I was so glad no one else was in
the store at that moment as the Lord helped me to pull this dear lady to the
point of decision.
“Why should you wait one more
day? Or even one more hour? Why don’t you make that commitment to the Lord
right now? I’ll pray for you.”
And without another word to her I
simply began to pray, using her name. “Dear Lord, reach down your hand to my
friend right now and draw her to salvation. Help her to turn to you with all of
her heart right now. In Jesus’ Name, I pray.”
She was wiping her eyes. “I’m
crying,” she sought to apologize.
“Wonderful! God is reaching down
to you right now. Did you pray with me?”
“Yes, I did.”
“Did you mean it with all your
“Yes I did. God sent you. I can’t
believe this is happening. Thank you. God was in this. He sent you to me.”
It’s hard to close a blog like
this in any other way than to say, “Thank you, Jesus, for what you did today,
for each one who received a salvation message, and for this friend who gave her
life to you today.”
“O Lord, thou art my God. I will
exalt thee. I will praise thy name; for thou has done wonderful things…”
