Not The Issue

If everyone in the world stopped sinning today, none
of them would be any closer to heaven! Sin is simply
not the issue; Christ is the issue. The objective in 
witnessing is not to get people to stop sinning-----
that would be a hopeless task; the emphasis is on the 
work of Christ as the Solution to sin.

Unlimited  Atonement
2 Cor. 5:14, 15,19;  1Tim. 2:6, 4:10;  Tit. 2:11;
Heb. 2:9;  2 Pet.  2:1;  1 John 2:2

Everyone who thus HOPES in Him purifies himself
as He is pure.
1 John 3:3

Be Clear
No mater how good or religious a man might be, 
he does not have the ability to penetrate this Barrier.
If you are to clearly present salvation, you must
understand the mechanics of the removal of the
 Barrier. The work of Jesus Christ on the Cross.
Jesus Christ died for the sins of the entire world and
thereby redeemed mankind; He paid the penalty for 
sin; He made possible our new birth.---regeneration.
Pas. 34:22;  John 8:31-36  Gal.3:13;  Eph. 1:7
1Pet. 1:18-19
Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us, even as we HOPE
in you.
Ps. 33:22

A Barrier


Is the removal of the antagonism between God and man,
the first work of God from which man benefits eternally.
Until Jesus Christ reconciled man to God, God and man
were separated by an impassable Barrier. The Barrier
consisted of sin, the penalty of sin the problem of physical
birth, the problem of the character of God, the relative
righteousness of man, and man's position in Adam, in
contrast to the eternal life and absolute righteousness
of God.

So that being justified by His grace we might become heirs
according to the HOPE of eternal life.
Titus 3:7

You Are An Ambassador

Believers in the Church Age

Are in His Royal Family and His ambassadors.
You have something really worthwhile to 
communicate to others. But how do you go
 about it? Your initial step is to learn Bible
doctrines pertinent to salvation. First of all,
there is the Doctrine of Reconciliation. 

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order
that you may know the HOPE to which He has called you.
Eph. 1:18

Our lessons are from
His book "Witnessing"

7. Confidence in witnessing comes from your own
assurance of eternal security.

8. The reward of witnessing is a part of your blessings
in time and in eternity.

The dynamics of witnessing by life and lips are
stated in (1 Thessalonians 1:4,5).

A better HOPE is introduced, by which we draw near to God.
Heb. 7:19

5. The dynamics of witnessing are determined by
your mental attitude and are related to your spiritual
growth or maturity.

6. The effectiveness of witnessing depends on the 
ministry of God the Holy Spirit.

To Be Accurate


3. Clarity of witnessing demands your accurate
understanding of the two deaths--spiritual and
physical---of Jesus Christ on the Cross.

4. The challenge of witnessing comes from the
Doctrine of Unlimited Atonement (1 John 2:2).
Christ died for all mankind!

What oxygen is to the lungs, such is HOPE 
to the meaning of life.
Emil Brunner

We do not lose heart. For our light and momentary
troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that 
far out weighs them all.
2 Cor. 4:16-17

There Are 8 ways--- For Effectiveness

Effective Witnessing

1. Witnessing is the responsibility of every believer.
There are two areas in which you may witness------
your life (2 Cor. 3:3; 6:3) and your lips (2 Cor. 5:14-21; 6:2).

2. Witnessing involves knowledge of Bible doctrines
pertinent to salvation, including Christology, Soteriology,
Reconciliation, the Judgment of Human Good and the 
Last Judgment.

Everything that is done in the world is done by HOPE
Martin Luther

The name of the Lord is a strong fortress; the godly run to 
Him and are safe.
Prov. 18:10

Divine Viewpoint

A period  of time expressing the divine viewpoint
of human history; the divine outline of history, or
the divine interpretation of human history, which

Full of Knowlege

The one thousand years of  human history, in which the
Lord Jesus Christ will reign and produce perfect
environment on earth.
Isaiah 11:9 predicts that "the earth shall be full of the
knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea."
 My great HOPE is to laugh as much as I cry:
to get my work done and try to love somebody
and have the courage to accept the love in return.

A period of seven literal years which completes the
Jewish Age. it follows the Rapture of the Church and
terminates with the Second Advent of Christ.

I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to
prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you HOPE
and a future.

For Believers

The resurrection of all dead believers of the Church Age;
at this time, they and all living believers are caught up to
meet Christ in the air to become the Bride of Christ.
(1 Thess. 4:14--17). 

May the God of HOPE fill you with all Joy and Peace in believing
that you may abound in Hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Rom. 15-13

Saturday, March 12, 2016


Following the removal of the Church from this earth at the
Rapture (1Thess. 4:13-18), there will occur a seven-year
period known in the Bible as the "Great Tribulation" (Matt.
24:21; Rev. 7:14). once again, Jews will assume their role
as the Lord's witnesses, for this final period of the Jewish
Age completes the 490 years God promised Israel for 
evangelism. In those seven terrible years, the testimony of
angelic witnesses (Rev. 14:6, 7) and that of the resurrected
Moses and Elijah (Rev.11:3-12) will spread the Gospel
throughout the world. Grace always precedes judgment.

Did We For Get Evangelism

Personal Evangelism
Confusion about personal evangelism, we have missed a 
great opportunity to win souls to  Christ in our generation. 
America is not a Christian nation; our citizens are as desperately
in need of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the heathen in darkest
Africa are! How can we hope to send out missionaries if we can
not witness effectively in our own backyard?

 Be strong and take heart all you who HOPE in the Lord
Ps. 31:24

In all things it is better to hope then to despair.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

A New Agency

The Jews

Still "owe" God seven years of witnessing; yet so great were
Israel's failures that God set the nation aside temporarily in
favor of a new agency-------the church.

All individuals who have personally received Christ as Savior
during the Church Age (from the day of Pentecost, A.D. 33 until
the Rapture)---born-again believers from every nation on the face
of the earth. So if you have believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, you 
are a member of the Church universal; you are responsible to God
for the dissemination of the Gospel in your own nation.

"I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, plans to
prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you HOPE and
a future.

Wednesday, March 9, 2016


Was made God's appointed custodian of divine truth
and was given the responsibility of evangelizing the
world (Rom. 3:1,2). Instead of carrying out their
assignment, the Israelite's came to regard salvation
as a Jewish monopoly and ultimately failed in their
mission. A particularly apostate period in their history
brought the Jews under severe divine discipline.
Israel's national rejection of their Messiah and the
subsequent death of Jesus Christ on the Cross.

We have this HOPE as an anchor for the Soul, firm and secure.
Heb. 6:19

Details Of Life

Passing Time
Mankind became increasingly preoccupied with the details
of life -- material possessions, friends, loved ones, pleasures and 
success; consequently, they turned a deaf ear to the Gospel. When
people reject the grace of God in salvation, and when believers 
neglect Bible doctrine, decadence and apostasy invariably take over.
This was the case at the time of the construction of the Tower of
Babel: the need for evangelism was forgotten, and man substituted
his own plans for those of God. (Gen.11:1-9).

Spring is coming!
Be joyful in Hope patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

We Have Two Camps

It was not long before response and reaction to the Gospel divided the human race
in to two camps---believers and unbelievers. For example, Abel responded to the 
offer of salvation and believed in the Son of God; Cain reacted against the offer
and became the first to reject eternal life. (Gen.4:8), (Gen. 4:25,26).

God is the only one who can make the valley of trouble a door of hope.
By Catherine Marshall

Good News

Agencies Of Witnessing
The first declaration of the Gospel occurred in the Garden
of Eden after the Fall, with the Lord Himself as the
Evangelist and the first man and his wife as the recipients of
the good news of salvation (Gen. 3:15-21). After the regeneration
of Adam and Eve, the Gospel became their sacred trust, and witnessing
operated on what I call the "family plan." According to this system, the
first parents set the precedent for all future parents in that they evangelized
their own children.

By R.B. Thieme,Jr.

"Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he 
is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which He hath
promised to them that love Him.
James 1:12

 Dear God, this is a new day and I may face unexpected
temptations. Please help me to keep free from evil.
In Christ name I pray

Personal Witnessing
Is frequently distorted into a merit system or is set aside entirely
in favor of mass evangelism. As a result, there prevails today a 
non biblical pattern: an evangelist is invited to some church to 
conduct a "revival," and members of  that church bring their friends
to hear him. If a few people are saved in this "revival," believers often
think that their personal  obligation to witness has been fulfilled.

"The Lord will bless His people with peace."
Psalm 29:11

Lord, help me to follow Your will with eagerness, knowing that to 
do so is the surest path to peace.
In Christ name I pray

As Children
of God by faith in Christ Jesus , we were born again into a
 high and noble position; we are not only citizens of this country,
 but also "fellow-citizens with the saints, and of the household of
God" (Eph. 2:19).

"And He said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest."
Exodus 33:14

Dear God, we know You do still speak to us. Help us to be still and know
what You are trying to tell us.

We Are Commissioned

The Gospel
The Lord commissioned born-again believers to carry the Gospel
to the ends of the earth. The Apostle Paul reminded the Corinthians
that they were to be ambassadors for Christ (2 Cor. 5:20).

Ambassadorship exists in the spiritual as well as in the temporal
realm. Like earthly ambassadors, we did not appoint ourselves but
were appointed by our Savior to represent Him on earth as the King
of Kings and Lords of Lords while He is at the right hand of the Father.

"The meek will He guide in judgment: and the meek will He teach His ways."
Psalm 25:9

Dear Heavenly Father, when I have failed through my own lack of wisdom,
help me to rely on Your unfaltering love and power.
In Christ name I pray

Responsibility of Witnessing
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost (Spirit) is come
upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in
all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth (Acts 1:8).

Who is responsible for the declaration of the Gospel--- the good news of 
salvation-- to the unbelieving world? Is the duty and privilege of witnessing
reserved solely for ministers, missionaries and evangelists?  Far from it!
Personal evangelism is the responsibility of  EVERY believer in the 
Lord Jesus Christ! 

"God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye...
may abound to every good work."
2 Corinthians 9:8

I place this day in Your care, O God, thanking You for the 
blessed assurance that Jesus is mine.
In Christ name I pray
