Evangelism Encounters

The Great Commission was given by God to the church in order that unbelievers might be given the opportunity to hear the gospel and be saved. In order for the lost to hear then, believers must go into the world and preach. Scripture states, “How then shall they call upon Him in whom they have not believed? Evangelize4Life missions corp. stresses street witnessing and one-on-one engagements as one of our core principles of ministry. We believe this is important due to the fact that most lost people do not attend church. Therefore, I have established the habit of setting aside one day a week to share the gospel in the market place. It was during one such evangelismencounter that I had the opportunity to witness to a young man walking down the street on his way home from work.  The Lord had already been working in his heart because he was willing and ready to discuss eternity having had a friend murdered earlier in the week.

 

The Father Draws (John 6:44) and the evangelist shares the gospel

“Deliver those who are being taken away to death. And those who are staggering to the slaughter, Oh hold them back.” Proverbs 24:11

Marvin (not his real name) has lived a similar life of immorality, drug abuse and drug dealing as had his friend.  He realizes that he too will die one day.  This was a divine encounter as the Lord had spoken to him about his own eternity on that very day as he walked toward home.

I presented the gospel of Jesus Christ to Marvin, using the Bible as well as gospel tracts, and upon the hearing of God’s Word, this young man soon realized that he was destined for hell. His immoral life confirmed that he was a candidate for the lake of fire if judged by God that day. He was encouraged to cry out to God and ask for His forgiveness from the Father God, through His Son Jesus Christ.

Within a couple of days of our meeting, Marvin separated from his live in girlfriend and moved back home until he could rent his own apartment. Over the past couple of months, he has continued to read scripture and to pursue righteousness. Sadly, his walk with Christ has been negatively influenced by both his older and younger brothers with whom he is now living. It was during a follow up visit that I encouraged this young man to shun evil by turning away from marijuana use and be filled with the Spirit. Neil T. Anderson in his book titled The Bondage Breaker writes:

“Christ has set you free through His victory over sin and death on the cross. But if you have failed to stand firm in the faith or you have willfully sinned, it is your responsibility to do whatever is necessary to maintain a right relationship with Him. Your eternal destiny is not at stake, but your daily victory is.” (Anderson, 199)

Jesus has the power to set men free from the bondage of sin.  Scripture reveals men, women, and children being delivered from demons, sickness, physical afflictions, etc. through faith in Him. The apostle John writes, “If therefore the Son shall make you free you shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36) This young man must learn that sanctification (to make holy) is necessary in order to become like Christ. Elwell writes, “Persons and things devoted to his use must be ritually clean, not merely set apart by taboo, decree, or tribal caste…the meaning of holiness is then worked out in philanthropy, love for God, clean living, compassion, commercial honesty, and love. (Elwell, 1051) Submission to God then gives believers the ability to resist the devil, causing him to flee.

Sexual Abuse Victor Offers Hope for Sandusky Victims, Others

Posted by  on Monday, October 15, 2012

By Rusty Wright and Meg Korpi

It hits you in the gut: Jerry Sandusky, former Penn State football coach, a convicted child molester. For Josh, it brings back agonizing memories. He knows how Sandusky’s victims must feel.  “You never get over it,” says the now septuagenarian.

A male housekeeper sexually molested Josh from ages six to thirteen.  At age nine, he told his mother; she whipped him for “lying.” As a teen, Josh finally could resist the pedophile physically, but years of torment left him angry and vengeful.

I (Rusty) have known Josh for over four decades, but only recently learned of his heartbreaking sexual abuse. His story is gripping. Read more of this post

Preach The Word!

 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

Psalm 126:5-6

Have you thought about the importance of the Word of God lately?  I mean the all encompassing necessary breadth of the importance of  God’s Word?  It occurs to me that God, the Father sent the Word to open the eyes of the blind and the ears of the deaf in order that men, women, boys and girls might be saved unto eternal life.  The Word is the Christian’s all in all; our Redeemer.  The Bread of Life.

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The same was in the beginning with God.

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

If those verses don’t make it clear enough, the Apostle John (under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit) writes this in verse 14:

“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

My exhortation and prompt to you today is to Preach the Word of God. The evangelist is to Preach Christ and Him Crucified, Risen and the only Way to the Father.

1 Corinthians 2:2
King James Version (KJV)
2 “For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.”

We here at Evangelize4Life Missions Corp. want to help you be ready to give an answer and to go forth bringing men from death to life. We do this by publishing this blog, teaching on our daily radio talk program

1 Corinthians 15:3-4   (KJV)  “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”

Be Blessed,

Do You Carry Tracts?

I encourage every Christian to get in the habit of carrying tracts.  These are great ice breakers and if you are new to street witnessing or to evangelizing those other than your family and friends these will go a long way toward equipping you to get past your inhibitions and to the work of an evangelist.

Will You Tell Them?

Children In the Lion’s Den

Should our children be sent as mini missionaries into the public school system?

Public schools are not Christ-friendly. I think we can all agree on this point. However, there are many parents who believe they are doing the system and Christ a favor by sending their children into the public school system to be light and salt. What do you think about that? Ought we to send our babes into the lion’s den as a minority in order that they might attempt to influence the culture of the school house? Or, are our babes being eaten up by the philosophies presented by the teachers and students whose agenda is no less than anti-Christ?

We’d like to hear from you on this. Leave us a comment and let’s discuss children as evangelists in the public school system.

Preach The Word!

 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

Psalm 126:5-6

Are you faithfully doing the work of an evangelist?  The Word of God is clear that we, as Christian Believers ought to be involved in the ministry of evangelism as a way of life.  Jesus taught this principle in the book of Matthew.  Let’s look at the parable of the Sower found in chapter 13.

It should be noted that through this teaching we are to grasp that Christ is both the  Sower and Seed.  In addition, Christ is teaching that we ought to be preaching the same message that He did.  We are to then Preach The Gospel; Tell Men.   How they respond depends upon the condition of their heart.  Remember that all men have the potential to receive the seed of the word.  As John MacArthur has rightly preached, “Dirt is dirt.” Read more of this post
