Why you should be a Soul Winner

Why You Should be a Soul Winner

1. Because Jesus commands it:

2. To the church, and also the individual Christian:

Mark 16:15 “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”

3. Because we are to be “Christ like” . Christian means:little Christians, and He “came to seek the lost”. He was a constant soul winner, wherever He went, wherever He met people, He would preach the Gospel to them.

Luke 19:10 “For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

Luke 5:32 “I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”

4. This is the Mission of the Church. The Church is to help us grow in grace, and to Evangelize the world. The Anti Christ is coming, the Great Tribulation is coming! We need to warn people.

There are over 7 Billion people, that is enough!

5. And the main reason? Because there is a HELL! Every person has Hell waiting at the end of their life if they are not born again. Sad to say. Because only one sin in your entire life will take you there, and ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23

6. No matter how rich, successful. No matter if they are a barber or own a bank. No matter if they live on the street, or live in a Mansion, they will goo to Hell when they die if someone does not tell them how to be born again, and they repent and get saved!

7. And Hell is forever!!! There is no second chance.

Mark 9:47 “And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:”

Jesus is saying , do not let anything stop you from being saved from Hell. Be willing to give up anything if it is keeping you from getting saved. I have heard of men that run a saloon, a bar . they knew that if they got saved, they would have to got saved, they would have to stop selling liquor and beer, so they let that stop them. They did not realize they were slaves to sin, and Jesus would set them free, and give them peace and joy. They loved their sin more.

Hell is a horrible place or torments, with real fire, real smoke.

Luke 16:23 “And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. This man , Jesus said, is being tortured. Why? Because he rejected the free pardon of Christ, or never heard about it.

Pride will take most people to Hell. They refuse to admit they are a sinner and need a Savior.

Luke 10:15 “And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell.”

We do not think God is serious about judging and punishing sin. He even punished the Angels that sinned!

2 Peter 2:4 “For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;”

Revelation 14:11 “And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”

Millions of people around you will take the Mark of the Beast, the sign of loyalty to the coming world dictator, the coming Antichrist.

The bible says if you do not receive the truth now, and get saved, but reject and put it off, you will be deceived and damned later and worship the antichrist.

2 Thessalonians 2:8 “8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, (the wicked one is the antichrist) whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, (He will work fake miracles to deceive people into thinking he is from God)

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. (You see , they rejected the truth over and over and put off getting saved)

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

That person will be damned, sad to say,

8. The church is not here for singing, fellowship, or a social club. IT IS HERE TO PULL SOULS OUT OF THE FIRES OF HELL!

9. If you stop being a church that evangelizes, you will turn into nothing but a social club centered around fellowship, You will have many activities, but still be in rebellion against God.

10. The person who does not obey this simple basic command is not qualified to teach a class, or sing a song at the church. You must obey in order for the Spirit of God to bless you.

11. It is like a fire station filled with firemen. There job is to put out fires. They may polish and clean the firetruck, cook, attend classes, do many things. BUT WHAT IS THERE JOB?

TO PUT OUT FIRES!

12. What if the firemen said, “oh, I clean things, or I cook. It is someone else’s job to put out fires.” NO. And the same is true in the church. It is your purpose, your mission, in fact, your life, to win souls, and evangelize the lost people all around you.

It is not just the Pastor’s job, or the missionaries job, or the Evangelist’s job. It is YOUR main ministry.

13. A soul winner is a WISE person.

Proverbs 11:30 “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.”

A wise person lives their life with eternity in sight. How will this look when I get judged by Jesus.

The main characteristic to look for in a leader, whether it is a Pastor, a Sunday School teacher, a deacon, is :

“Are the a faithful soul winner”? It does no good if your Pastor can preach a great message every time, if the members of the church do not get saved, and die and go to Hell. Can your neighbor depend on you to get the message to them, that will keep them out of Hell.?

That is a wise person.

14. Winning souls can prolong judgment from God.

A Nation may be so full of sin, that God is ready to send judgment on them, but a saved praying little group, a remnant, can save a country and God can show mercy. Abraham did this with Sodom and Gomorrah. God was willing to spare them from judgment if there were only 10 righteous people, because of Abraham’s prayers.

Genesis 18:20 “And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;

21 I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.

22 And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD.

23 ¶ And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?

24 Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein?

25 That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?

26 And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.

27 And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes:

28 Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five? And he said, If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it.

29 And he spake unto him yet again, and said, Peradventure there shall be forty found there. And he said, I will not do it for forty’s sake.

30 And he said unto him, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there. And he said, I will not do it, if I find thirty there.

31 And he said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord: Peradventure there shall be twenty found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for twenty’s sake.

32 And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten’s sake.”

Unfortunately , Lot was not a soul winner, there were not even 10 saved people in all Sodom and Gomorrah.

A soul winner carries Gospel tracts and gives them to everty body they can. A soul winneer prays for Goiod to lead and make opportunities to witness.

A soul winner prays f0or boldness, and the filling of the Holy Spirit. Paul asked for prayer for a “door of utterance” for himself.

Epheisans 6:18- “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

19 ¶ And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.”

I pray for the love of God, for fire, for wisdom to witness, for boldness, for the lord to give me Devine apppointments every day.

Are you a soul winner?

Why I Believe the Bible

I have read the King James 1611 Bible at least 33 times all the way through. I have studied  it systematically every day for about 37  years. I have never found one historical inaccuracy, although there are thousands of historical events written about. It has never been proven wrong through any archaelogical find that has been dug up from the past.  It changed my life from a dope smoking rebel to a Holy Saint. It has changed millions of other lives, also. I was Born Again August 1979 at 3335 Apt. #57, Artesia Blvd in Torrance , CA.

I was working at a Paraphernalia drug accessory wholesale distributing company (Some of these things were illegal at the time) in Gardena Ca. on 135th street, off Western Ave.

I began to study books on Bible Prophecy, like Hal Lindsey’s book “The Late Great Planet Earth”, “There is a New World Coming”, etc. Only an extremely proud person could reject the record of fulfilled prophecy as not indicating there is a Divine mind behind the writers of Scripture. Holy men of God wrote as they were guided by the Holy Spirit. ALL scripture is given by inspiration of God. 1,817 predictions about future events of men, cities, nations, Israel, The Coming Messiah, the coming and going alignment of nations , of world empires. Some of the predictions were made 6,000 years before they happened! Man can not write a book like that. Every Word always comes 100 % true, without error. Name me any other Religious book that can claim these things. Jesus fulfilled over 300 predictions in His ministry. The Koran has zero, that is right, zero predictions about the coming of Mohammad. It is simple. If God says “If you do not obey my Word, I will punish you”, and I do not “Have His Word”, that is not fair!  I have every Word of God, perfectly preserved, right here in my hand! The King James 1611 Bible.

Only God can write a book written by over 40 divergent authors, fishermen, herdsmen, Kings, Poets, etc., over a period of 1500 years, many of the writers living hundreds of years apart, in three different languages. Yet it all has continuity, as if it had only ONE writer. It did! The Holy Spirit guided and preserved every letter.

Believe it!

Jesus asked those critics listening to him, why they did not understand him.

John 8:43 ‘Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.’

Do you hear God’s Word?

Jesus said three times that Heaven and Earth would pass away, but not one Word of His. that is powerful!

Matthew 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
Mark 13:31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
Luke 21:33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

The  Holy Bible is God’s written Word! Perfect , for instruction, for correction.

JULGAMENTO ESTÁ VINDANDO!

JULGAMENTO ESTÁ VINDANDO!

Deus permitirá que mísseis nucleares da Coréia do Norte atinjam os EUA ?!
Espero que não. Mas Deus sempre julgará o pecado.
Gênesis 6: 5 “E viu o SENHOR que a maldade do homem se multiplicara sobre a terra e que toda a imaginação dos pensamentos de seu coração era só má continuamente. “. Lembre-se de Deus é um Deus santo. Ele vê a violência e todo pecado perverso. Lembre-se também de que Ele é o Todo-Poderoso, Deus soberano, Ele não responde a ninguém!
Ele destruiu milhões de pessoas enviando o dilúvio mundial de Noé. Noé advertiu-os através de sua pregação por 120 anos. Apenas 8 pessoas foram salvas pela Arca.
Ele permitiu a destruição de Seu povo Israel, E TOMOU-LOS, onde eles não eram mais uma Nação, por causa de seu pecado. Apesar das muitas orações do justo Abraão, Ele destruiu Sodoma com fogo e enxofre, como um exemplo de Seu ódio contra seu estilo de vida Sodomite.
É apenas uma questão de quando.
Ele punirá o pecado. Quando ele vê Chicago e muitas outras cidades da América cheias de assassinatos, tiroteios, drogas e imoralidade, ENTREGUE! GUARDE-se, salve sua família. FLEE a Jesus Cristo pela Misericórdia E SALVAÇÃO.

JUDGMENT IS COMING !

JUDGMENT IS COMING !

Will God allow nuclear missiles from North Korea to reach the USA?!
I hope not. But God will ALWAYS judge sin.
Genesis 6:5 ““And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” Remember God is a Holy God. He sees violence and every wicked sin. Also remember He is The Almighty, Sovereign God, He answers to no one !
He destroyed millions of people by sending the world wide flood of Noah. Noah warned them through his preaching for 120 years. Only 8 people were saved by the Ark.
He allowed the destruction of His people Israel, AND TOOK THEM AWAY, where they were no longer a Nation, because of their sin. Despite the many prayers of righteous Abraham, He destroyed Sodom with fire and brimstone, as an example of His hatred against their Sodomite lifestyle.
It is just a matter of when.
He WILL punish sin. When He sees Chicago and many other cities of America filled with murder, shooting, drugs and immorality, WATCH OUT! SAVE yourself, save your family. FLEE to Jesus Christ for Mercy AND SALVATION.!

The Real Rapture

I believed in the Pre Tribulation Rapture for 37 years.  I was wrong. I can not find ANY verses teaching a “SECRET RAPTURE”.? I taught that Rev. 4:1-2 was it, when John is caught up into heaven. No. this is not millions of believing Saints “caught up”, it is just one man , caught up in the Spirit. I taught that it is imminent, or could happen any time, this is not true. 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 specifically says:

2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 “Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 ¶ Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” It says DO NOT BE DECEIVED, DO NOT BE SHAKEN IN MIND, THAT THE “DAY OF CHRIST” (another name for the Rapture) is at hand (is imminent?!)

MIllions have been deceived into believing in a secret Pre- Tribulation Rapture. They are “looking up”, and Satan is slipping his man into power. They will become discouraged and (hopefully not) give up and quit when this does not happen, and they find there selves in the Great  Tribulation. I read the “Left Behind Books” also. I liked them. But this is not Bible. Many Pastors and preachers started reading about the Pre Trib Rapture in the Scofield Reference notes. These are good notes. BUT THESE ARE NOT SCRIPTURE! They began preaching it as truth. The early church fathers believed in a time of testing, then the Rapture.

I THINK  Matt.  24:29 clearly is the Rapture.  Before the Wrath of God falls. It clearly teaches “one will be taken,  one left”. What else could Jesus be talking about. It is not just written for Jews. Mark 9:37 says It is for “All” . The Elect are always the Saints. This Sign of His Coming” will be Jesus in ALL His Glory when the sky is darkened.  The reference to the the Sun Moon and Stars going dark, is in Matthew 24:29, Revelation 6:12-13, Isaiah 13;10,  Joel 2:31 (31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. ) are ALL referring to the same event, first the Rapture, the Elect Saints , all who are born again, are “gathered” buy the Angels, One is taken, One left. Immediately  a great multitude of people appears in Heaven, and John is told these are they “that are come out of Great Tribulation.

Revelation 7:9 “After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
13 ¶ And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.”

Then the same Day starts the wrath of God, called The Day of the Lord” The”Thief in the night” means it will come suddenly, and shock the unaware spiritually.  His coming” could not be imminent,  at any time,” but CAN NOT HAPPEN until after the apostacy, and the abomination of desolation.  2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 says the Day of Christ CAN NOT COME until the apostacy, the falling away from Biblical truths we seeing happening right now , and The son of perdition  is revealed. The son of perdition in context of 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 is clearly the coming world dictator , the Antichrist.  The Rapture is also here called ” The Day of Christ “. It is different than the time of God’s Wrath, also called “The Day of the Lord” a period of the Wrath of God that starts the same day, AFTER the Rapture.  The 3rd Jewish Temple still has to be built, for it has to exist for the Antichrist to commit “The Abomination of desolation ” in the future. I believe we are in the time of sorrows  Jesus spoke about. We see a rapid convergence of these signs. Wars, rumors of wars , plagues, famines, earthquakes, etc. You may read my book for free, “The Coming Great Tribulation ” at my web site. Also see “The Sign of the Son of Man” and other articles about the rapture.

Do Not Be Deceived

“2 2 Thes.1 NOW we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2
That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. “3
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not “come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4
Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”
Here we are first warned not to be deceived “that the Day of Christ is at hand” This is another name for the Rapture. First there must come a “falling away” which is the Apostasy we see happening right now. Second, the “son of perdition ” ( another name for the antichrist) must be revealed. For sure we will know  it is him when he goes into the rebuit Jewish Temple (which has not been rebuilt yet) and commits “the Abomination of Desolation” . He will set up a statue of Himself and proclaim he is God, which is Blasphemy. I am keeping an eye open for any poliyical figure that signs a covenant with Israel for 7 years.
I believe there is no “secret rapture”. Show me one verse about it being secret! I believe Matthew 24:29 is the Rapture. One is taken , one left. Would you like to  read my new book for free? “The Coming Great Tribulation” See it on this site, or go to:
