THE SENDING FORTH

“It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and shall be lifted up above the hills; and all the nations shall flow to it”- Isaiah 2:2 ( NLT)

God is giving the vision to reach the lost to many in Canada and beyond. 

We give God praise, that He is sending forth labourers into the harvest.

THE MAKING OF A MISSIONARY – Tract Evangelism

The Making of a Missionary —

Tract – ministry –A person who gives out tracts has a standard reply to people who say, what is it…—the tract Your Ticket to Heaven  …..when you have a minute of two, read this “it just tells you how God loves you and sent His Son the Lord Jesus Christ to suffer and die for your sins and mine.  He paid our debt of sin in full was buried, rose again and was seen by hundreds of people.  Read it carefully and understand it and mean it, do what it says at the end so you can go to Heaven.” 

Several times a day —meeting people, and giving out the word of God and giving them the plan of salvation

Someone in my church is giving out tracts, stamped with the Church information.  Earnestly doing the work of God through distribution of the plan of salvation.  One of her tracts says “You Have to Meet God Sometime.”  This is missionary work.  Can you get involved?

Keep this ministry in prayer.

GO Jesus wants you to be the answer to your own prayer

Go Jesus said.

Some  are too busy waving flags, dancing,  while the world is dying and going to hell.  Jesus wants you to become the answer to your own prayer.   Pray ye the Lord of harvest that He might send forth labourers. 

You’re the labourer.

How many people have you lead to the Lord this week.

How many people have you told about Jesus.  Have you shared the “ticket to heaven” with an unsaved person today?   Jesus is the way, the only way. 

Jesus came into the world to save the lost.  His heart is for the lost, and for the extension of the Kingdom.

I DON’T WANT TO CHANGE!

I DON’T WANT TO CHANGE

God offers us abundant life, but we have to participate in the plan.

 

2 Corinthians 6:1
We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.

We are workers together with God.  If we don’t give our lives over to the Master of our lives, our lives will unravel.

2 Corinthians 6 (King James Version)

2 Corinthians 6

 1We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.

 2(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

 3Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed:

 4But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,

 5In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings;

 6By pureness, by knowledge, by long suffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,

 7By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,

 8By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true;

 9As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed;

 10As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.

 11O ye Corinthians, our mouth is open unto you, our heart is enlarged.

 12Ye are not straitened in us, but ye are straitened in your own bowels.

 13Now for a recompence in the same, (I speak as unto my children,) be ye also enlarged.

 14Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

 15And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

 16And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

 17Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

 18And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

SURRENDER

Surrender to the fact that God’s ways are not our ways.

Isaiah 55:9 For [as] the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

God has a unique vantage and the ability to see the overall picture that we can never fully see ourselves unless he gives us his perspective. We are finite creatures and cannot see the future and our understanding of the past and present are often clouded.

When we are in crisis and in deep pain, we can hardly see beyond our own nose. The deeper our emotional, physical or spiritual pain, the more difficult it is for us to see beyond our own turmoil. When we throw ourselves on God’s mercy, we don’t have to rely on our own understanding.

GOD’S BAIL OUT PLAN REQUIRES A “SELL OUT!”

Reading Exodux 8, 9, 10 today the Land of Goshen.  God had a different division, protection and system for the people of God.  A separation.

Spending time meditating, studying and praying over these scriptures, its clear God has a protection, a place a plan to get us out of difficulty, provided we are sold out.  Sell out to God and you will be kept. 

Your economy is not the world’s economy. 

I read a wonderful testimony of God giving great blessing and promotion in times of adversity for the people of God.  This economy is the time God’s people thrive.

Isaac… sowed during famine and God blessed him.  Being a tither is a 10% insurance protection for the 90%.  Nothing like being a tither… no curse, but blessed, blessed and blessed an open heaven blessing over you..

JESUS ESTABLISHED HIS KINGDOM WITH HIS WORD

UNLIKE MOSES who ruled by the rod

Jesus rules by His Word.

Matt 26:25 put away your sword Peter…that’s not where it’s at.

Jesus spoke the Father’s will. Rom 5:21 –Jesus Christ the new Adam.

“for He taught them as one having authority and not as the scribes.” Matt 7: 28.

  • Like Joshua who established the Kingdom of Israel with every step he took.
  • Jesus was establishing His kingdom rule with every word He spoke. 
  • He spoke cleansing healing to the leper
  • He spoke forgiveness to the paralytic
  • and to prove the authority of His Words.  He added this statement.                                                  

Matthew 9:5-7 (King James Version)5For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?  6But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house. 7And he arose, and departed to his house.

Matt 8:8  speak the word Jesus and my servant will be healed.  The healing of the servant by the Word.  He sent His word.

Matthew 8:23-27 (King James Version) Jesus spoke to the winds.  Who but Jesus?

The kingdom rule of Jesus Christ on earth will be by the Word.  This is His plan for His church.  He came to establish a new world order–a world ordered by His Word.
