WORLDWIDE INTERNET EVANGELISM

John 14: 6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

ALL SLAVERY IS NOT BAD!

Today slavery is a very hot topic amongst the BLM (Black Lives Matter). The BLM is protesting slavery and anything or anybody connected with owning slaves. In the United States slavery was abolished in 1862.

“The Emancipation Proclamation, or Proclamation 95, was a presidential proclamation and executive order issued by United States President Abraham Lincoln on September 22, 1862, during the Civil War.” Wikipedia

The first time slavery is mentioned in the Bible the whole nation of Israel were slaves of Egypt. (Leviticus 26:13)There are still all kinds of slaves in the world today. Human trafficking is the worst of the lot!

Even in the true Churches of God today there is slavery!

What does Jesus have to say about this slavery? First we must realize how slavery in the Church came about. Jesus first teaches us that we are baptized into the body of Christ (the Church)!

Romans 6:3-5 Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection.

When Jesus died on the cross He conquered death and death does not have power over the body of Christ (the Church). Jesus shed His blood so that all the worlds’ sins are forgiven past present and future. Those who have repented and surrendered to Christ and confessed that they are sinners and receive the free gift of grace from Him are no longer under bondage or shackled in slavery to sin but have eternal life.

 Romans 6: 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,

9-10 knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.

18 And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness.

22 But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.

God created man for a very high calling to be His children forever. Wouldn’t you rather want to receive the free gift of Jesus Christ than to be burned in Hell? Get on your knees now and ask Jesus to come into our life and if you are really sincere He will give you the gift of eternal life!

GO TO ALL THE WORLD AND PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE LOST —Jesus

 

By what way does the internet spread over the earth? Is it something that man created or has it always been? It was discovered by man and put to his use but he did not create it. Job 38:24 by what way is light diffused, or the east wind scattered over the earth? Man has been able to make lights and use wind to power mighty ships and in today’s modern world, airplanes. Wireless networking technology uses radio waves to provide wireless high-speed Internet and network connections.

20 years ago today, the World Wide Web opened to the public

by MARTIN BRYANT — Aug 6, 2011 in INSIDER

 

6 August 1991

On 6 August 1991, exactly twenty years ago, the World Wide Web became publicly available. Its creator, the now internationally known Tim Berners-Lee, posted a short summary of the project on the alt. hypertext newsgroup and gave birth to a new technology which would fundamentally change the world as we knew it.Aug 6, 2011

 

Now it has been nearly 30 years since the internet became public. Now people from all over the world can communicate through the internet. That is an amazing miracle!

Today, minor evangelists just like me can reach out to people all over the world and share the saving knowledge of the gospel message of Jesus Christ. As more and more Christians use the media airways for the purpose of preaching the gospel, reaching the whole world is possible. Close to 40% of the world’s population do not have the internet yet. But more and more are being added everyday and these people need to know Christ! All they need is a cell phone. Thousands of people from over 170 countries have responded to my blog WORLDWIDE INTERNET EVANGELISM many have accepted Jesus as their Savior and that, brothers and sisters in Christ, makes it all worthwhile.

God is waiting to bless you with abundant blessing if you become an internet evangelist.

Matthew 9:37 Then He (Jesus) said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few.

THE LIGHT OF SALVATION REVEALED IN THE LAST TIME

 

By definition, a senior citizen is a person who has passed retirement age, a landmark in my life that I passed some fifteen years previously. I mull this over because I found myself not able to give service in and to the Church as easily as in my younger days. There were times when I taught Sunday school, gave bible studies, and preached in nursing homes on Sunday to the shut-in Church members. The time finally came when it was difficult for me to do those things. Suddenly, I was faced with needing to serve God in some new way. I begin to pray about this and sought God’s Word to find the answers I needed.

It just happens that I have had a computer since the early eighties. My first desk top computer used two 5 ½ inch floppy disks. One would contain a program and the other was set up to do my work on and save. The hard drive hadn’t been developed yet. I did not know at the time that learning how to use a computer would, some day, play an important part in founding a new ministry to reach unsaved people.

God, in His infinite wisdom, knew that it was time to introduce the internet. God the Father is the only one who knows when Christ’s second coming will take place but He give hints in Matthew 24: 32-33 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near — at the doors!

I believe in hind sight that the internet was a tremendous hint that the end was getting near because now there was a fantastic way to reach people all over the world with the Gospel message of salvation through faith in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 1: 3-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

The internet is like a great light shining over the world to the unsaved.

 Matthew 4:16 The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, And upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death Light has dawned.”

2 Corinthians 4:6 For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

My ministry is the “Worldwide Internet Evangelism”. I share Christ with thousands of people over the internet in over 170 countries. Just a few years ago this was impossible. My greatest inspiration to do this came from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Here is a brief account about the real beginning of internet evangelism.

 “In 1996, BGEA entered the developing frontier of cyberspace, launching the ministry’s flagship website, BillyGraham.org. The site quickly became a portal to offer ministry updates and spiritual guidance, while also sharing the hope of Jesus with visitors. Today, hundreds of thousands visit the site every month. BGEA’s Internet Evangelism ministry today has seen millions make commitments to Jesus Christ online.”

Jesus Christ has sent all Christians out to be evangelist and He has provided the tools with which to do the job.

Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

It is time to reach all the nations of the world with the Cross of Christ!

Be an Internet Evangelist for Christ!

BUILDING STONES FOR CHRIST

Have you become petrified or, are you a living, building stone for Christ?

Christians are all part of the body of Christ and have an important role to play in God’s plan. Ask Jesus everyday what He wants you to do? Seek His guidance in everything. Be a useful stone in the building of the Church. Even in the wilderness the Israelites relied on a Spiritual Rock.

1 Cor. 10:3-5 All were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, all ate the same spiritual food, and all drank the same spiritual drink. FOR THEY DRANK OF THAT SPIRITUAL ROCK THAT FOLLOWED THEM, AND THAT ROCK WAS CHRIST!

When Christ started His ministry and began building His Church, He selected twelve apostles to train in building His Church. Jesus chose Peter as the chief apostle and rock of the Church to start His building!

Matthew 16:18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church.

The Church has grown in two thousand years to about two billion Christians on the earth. It is still growing as you the building stones of the Church are spreading the gospel of salvation to reach the lost of the world.

Again I ask are you petrified or are you a living stone for Christ? Are you using your life to reach others who are lost? Are you planting and watering so God can give the increase? That is what He commands!

1 Corinthians 3:6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase.

Ephesians 2:20 Having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF BEING THE CHIEF CORNERSTONE. Thess. 1: 6 You became followers of us and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, WITH JOY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Be moved by the Holy Spirit! The Holy Spirit dwells in you! Let Him use you as a fruitful building stone for Christ.

MYSTERY OF MAN’S PURPOSE

God made a time for everything! Ecclesiastes 3:1 To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven:

11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.

From the beginning to the end! WOW! The historical lifetime of man is extremely short compared to the lifetime of God! Revelation 1:8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”

God has a great and Holy Plan by which He created the heavens and the earth and created man to inhabit the earth. So the age old question that has been asked: “What is man and what is his purpose?” The purpose is a great mystery that is now revealed by the Holy Spirit to those in Christ! God created man for an extremely high and holy purpose, but He left it to man to decide whether he wanted to partake of His glory. So what has man done with the earth he has inherited? He has just about totally polluted it. The earth, air, water, sound, etc. you name it and man has tainted and contaminated it. Man’s understanding of things from above is polluted and perverted as well. God wants to share His glory with those who choose to do so through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

 1Peter 1:3-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an INHERITANCE INCORRUPTIBLE AND UNDEFILED and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

The Holy Spirit in Christ Jesus changes everything by making anyone who chooses Christ and is born again into new life an INHERITOR of the Kingdom of God. They will receive a new body, name, residence, job, eternal life, a great reward, is a king and priest, sharing the glory and throne of God!

HOW MUCH GREATER CAN A PURPOSE BE?

A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST

Are you ready to meet Jesus? Experience a miraculous change in your life! Just maybe deep in your heart you would really like to know if it is true. Yes! Jesus changes everything! Come on, ask Him to speak to your heart. It will be strictly between you and Jesus! 

Matthew 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

Jesus is calling you and tugging at your heart strings to respond, say: “YES LORD!”

Father the Bible says that You and You only are the One to call men to Christ because you can see into the heart of man and know when someone is ready to be born again. Reveal Your Truth to those who read this and open their eyes to see Jesus! In Jesus name, amen!

CONFESS YOUR SINS TODAY AND BE SAVED!

Always know that Jesus loves you!

He paid a great price so that you could be free of sin and receive the heavenly blessings of God the Father. Romans 5:8 God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Jesus was the Word!  John 1:14 The Word became 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. Hebrews 1:3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the WORD of His power.

Jesus came to this earth as a flesh and blood man, at about the age of thirty; he started His ministry that only lasted three and a half years. He was taken by the Jews and given to the Romans and charged with treason! Matthew 27:28-31 And they stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him. When they had twisted a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand. And they bowed the knee before Him and mocked Him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!” Then they spat on Him, and took the reed and struck Him on the head. And when they had mocked Him, they took the robe off Him, put His own clothes on Him, and led Him away to be crucified. He was scourged with a “cat of nine tails” until the flesh of His body was ripped to pieces. Jesus nearly bled out and was unable to carry His cross to Golgotha they found man of Cyrene, Simon by name and had him carry the cross for Jesus. The Roman soldiers nailed Jesus to the cross with huge nails in His hands and feet, later a soldier rammed a spear into Jesus’ side.

Jesus willingly allowed all these things to happen and died so you could be saved!

By His stripes you are healed! He shed His blood so your sins would be forgiven! You are the ones who are sinners and deserve to die but Jesus willingly took your place and died for you! He was in the tomb for three days and rose on the third day, resurrected to life and ascended to the throne of God in heaven and lives ruling over all things.

He did it all for you so you could be saved and live in glory with God for eternity!

Receive Him as your personal savior today! No matter whom you are or what you have done, Jesus loves you and wants to set you free from sin! Confess to Jesus that you are a sinner and you want Jesus to come into your life. Surrender yourself to Jesus now and receive eternal life. He is waiting to receive you now! Tomorrow may be too late!

Dear heavenly Father please help sinners understand this message and respond to it for all the glory it will give to them and You! In Jesus name, amen!

DECISION TEXAS TOUR 2017 THOUGHTS AND NOTES

Attending the Decision Texas, Lone Star Tour reception was a real blessing as I was inspired, encouraged, shocked, and saddened by the things Franklin Graham had to say. He showed us videos of the horrendous flood in Houston caused by Hurricane Harvey. He showed the many people working to help the people who lost everything in that storm. They prayed for, cleaned, fed, and comforted those suffering from such great loss. Franklin Graham said that Samaritans Purse would be there for about three years helping people.

Franklin Graham showed videos of their relief work in Puerto Rico, Dominica, and Barbuda and said most of the home were leveled especially in Barbuda where all the homes were destroyed. The devastation is unbelievable.

He said that they had a request from the United Nations headquarters to set up a field hospital eleven miles from Mosel in Iraq. Isis has killed and maimed so many people in Mosel there was a great need for a hospital as there were none available for these poor injured people. Refugees were fleeing Mosel heading into the desert to get away from the bloodshed and the Isis sharp shooters were targeting the children of the refuges killing and maiming them. LITTLE CHILDREN! It took thirty days to set up the hospital and staff it. There were sixty doctors and nurses on duty 24/7 and operated on more than four thousand people that fled Mosel trying to get away from Isis. The hospital compound was in shelling distance from Mosel so they had to erect a fifteen foot concrete blast wall around the ten acre hospital compound with solid steel gates and was guarded by the Kurds. Franklin Graham said that there were children screaming and crying, some had lost arms, legs, eyes, shot in the head and the doctors were relentless in helping these children. He asked all of us to pray hard for these people.

The Florida Keys was one of the areas hard hit by the hurricanes of recent date. This area is heavily homosexually dominated. There were people who were homosexual who suffered damage and lost their homes. The Samaritans Purse disaster relief chaplains prayed with and for these people and some surrendered to Christ. Praise the Lord!

Samaritans Purse and the BGEA are constantly helping people all over the world and have invitations from governments such as North Vietnam to go preach to them. They have a wounded warrior camp in Alaska and have helped hundreds of veterans and their husbands or wives to reconcile their marriages and show them how they can still live productive lives. Hundreds have received Christ through that program.

Pray for Samaritans Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association! I think it is amazing that none of what they do ever is reported in the news. God just continues to use them and bless them daily! They set a great example for all Christians showing that if we work together more can be done in serving our Lord Jesus Christ.

Continue to pray for our nation that it will turn back to God!

Psalms 33:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD!

DECISION TEXAS THE LONE STAR TOUR with FRANKLIN GRAHAM

I thank God for His many blessings as He is most generous. I am happy to announce that Samaritans Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association are hosting the “DECISION TEXAS: THE LONE STAR TOUR” as they hold their event in San Antonio, Texas this coming Sunday, October 15, 2017. They are holding events in seven cities in Texas in the month of October. They are pushing hard to reach the unsaved. Please pray that many will turn to Jesus Christ during these events.

The Billy Graham Association is probably the first organization to utilize the internet evangelism to spread the gospel of Christ. They started their internet evangelism in 1994.

My wife and I have been supporters of Samaritans Purse for years and now we have been blessed with a special invitation to join Franklin Graham for a private reception prior to the Lone Star Tour event in San Antonio, Texas. I cannot express, fully, my gratitude for such a wonderful opportunity to meet Franklin Graham and hear him share the gospel message to the people of the San Antonio, Texas area. Again I urge everyone to pray to Jesus Christ for this event to successfully reach the unsaved.

In Jesus name,

Jerry Cartwright

Int’l VICE PRESIDENT OF INOE FOR NORTH AMERICA

GODS GARDEN OF EDEN TODAY

The bible says that God created a garden in Eden and put Adam in it. He then created all the trees. In the middle of the trees is where God put the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Genesis 2:8-9 The LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. And out of the ground the LORD God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

God also gave Adam the job of taking care of the garden. The bible does not say how long Adam was alone in the garden but it must have been lengthy because of all the things Adam had to do. All was done before Eve was given unto him. Adam was still alone when God gave him the command that he could eat of all the trees in the garden with the exception of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. God told Adam he would die if he ate of it. So Adam was aware of all the trees in the garden including the tree of life and the tree of death. Why he ignored the tree of life is a very good question! He was aware of it long before Eve was created.

The very essence of how Adam perceived the tree of life is very much like how mankind perceives eternal life today! They know it is there and that it gives life, but like Adam they are not interested. Mankind indulges in the sins and evil ways of the world (tree of the knowledge of good and evil) because they choose to do so; they are guilty of disobeying God and come under the death penalty. Those who choose life and confess that they are sinners, submitting to Jesus Christ and receiving Him into their lives are given the gift of eternal life. Their sins are forgiven, past, present, and future through the shed blood of Jesus on the cross. John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. The tree of life represents Jesus Christ!  

Genesis 2:15-17 Then the LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

Adam and Eve saw the trees in the garden every day, and I still ask myself, “Why did they not want to eat of the tree of life”? The serpent really fooled them when he said they would not die but would know all about good and evil just like God does. They didn’t know that their disobedient act would condemn all mankind to the death penalty. (Remember that people who are deceived don’t know they are deceived!) Adam and Eve were driven out of the garden so they could not eat of the tree of life and live forever. Genesis 2:22-23 Then the LORD God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever” — therefore the LORD God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken.

Now God sent His only Son down to the earth to take on the flesh of mankind (though He was still fully God) to suffer on the cross as the supreme blood sacrifice; and, by His grace, do away with the sins of the world and to die in our place so that He could freely give us His gift of eternal life. That is how great God’s love is for us! John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Now is the time of salvation! Don’t keep following the sinful, evil ways of the world! Follow the “way, the truth, and the life” through Jesus Christ!

Dear heavenly Father I come praying for the many still living in sin in this world and ask that you would draw them to Christ as the truth of salvation is shared with them through the multitude of ways you have made available in this technical age by television, radio, Media, satellite, and the internet in the Christian churches today. There are still billions of people in this world who need to be saved and only You can make it possible. Open the doors of salvation to the unsaved of the world! Father You deserve all the glory! In Jesus name I pray, amen!
