Satan's Counter-Attack Against International Evangelism

continued

3. How We Can Achieve the Objective

Now that we've seen how this attack against American Christianity is being driven home, with the ultimate aim of Satan being to drive the true Christian church in America underground, and you've also been given a concept of the time-frame we're dealing with.  Next question: How can we as concerned Christians possibly fulfill the Great Commission Jesus gave us to accomplish-how can we do it within that short time-frame? That is the ultimate question for the whole Christian church.  Can you possibly imagine a muzzled Christian church in America, where the simple preaching of the gospel out of the Bible is banned by our state and federal governments?  What will happen to international evangelistic organizations like the JESUS Film Project, Samaritan's Purse, and Gospel for Asia?   Due to lack of funding they will all go out of business.  Funding for these major front-line evangelistic organizations will dry up and their efforts to preach the gospel to the entire world will dry up as well.  A genuine "famine of the Word" will begin to sweep the world.  So if we are to get the job of Matthew 28:18-20 finished, as Jesus prophecies we will in Matthew 24:14, we need to take all of this into account and form a strategy for bringing massive funding into these three major evangelistic organizations within this five year time-frame

       In the mission statement of this Website I outline a way to accomplish this.  I call it the $5 a week plan.  By simply taking $5 a week and sending it to one of those three major international evangelistic organizations, rotating that donation from one to the next every week, massive funding can be brought to bear and supplied to God's front-line troops in the international evangelistic Army of God.  God does say we are in his army, and these guys are the front-line troops, facing dangers you wouldn't dream of facing.  On the fourth week of this $5 a week plan you could split your donation between Mission Aviation Fellowship and one of the two Messianic Jewish evangelistic organizations, Jews for Jesus or MESSIAH FOR ISRAEL Ministries.  What follows is the mission statement where I outline this $5 a week plan.   This plan should not really hamper your weekly church donations or major efforts to give what Dr. Dobson has proposed in the letter above. Please consider taking on the responsibility of supplying Jesus' front-line troops while there is time to do so.

What follows is the Mission Statement of this Website.



MISSION STATEMENT:

2. The second major purpose of this site is to educate Christians about Jesus' primary mission which he gave to the church and all believers in Matthew 28:18-20 and Acts 1:6-9.  What is that mission? Read it for yourself.  Matthew 28:18-20 states, "Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go.  When they saw him, they worshipped him; but some doubted.  Then Jesus came to them and said, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.  And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.'"  Acts 1:6-9 states, "So when they met together, they asked him, 'Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?'  He said to them: 'It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority.  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on [upon] you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."  Jesus prophecied in Matthew 24:14 that we as Christians would ultimately accomplish this goal set before us by him over 1900 years ago.  Matthew 24:14 states, "And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come."  [Verses 15-25 shows what "end" Jesus is talking about, the "end of the age", this evil age of man under Satan's evil influence.]  In one word, what is the mission Jesus gives all Christians, his body of believers, to accomplish?--Evangelism, personal, local church, national and international.  This site provides vital educational tools to help the believer know how he or she can evangelize on a personal level, as well as how to help support local church evangelism, and evangelism at the national and international levels as well.  (See "What is Evangelism?" section.)

Now I'm going to get a little bit personal.  The gospel is freely given to us (if you have to pay for it, something's wrong).  Salvation through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ is also a free gift to all believers.  Jesus paid a very high price for this salvation we enjoy, he paid with his very life.  The only thing Jesus asked us to do in return for all this is that we "Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to everyone--and for those that believe and are baptized, we are instructed to teach and disciple them into the body of Christ" (paraphrase of Matthew 28:19-20 and Mark 16:15-16).  "But how in the world can I help do that?", you may be asking yourself.  Some of us may have an opportunity to evangelize to a friend or acquaintance now and then, "but taking the gospel to the ends of the world, there's no way I can do that", you're probably thinking.  "I know Jesus paid a horrible price for my "free" salvation, but there's no way I can take the gospel to the world."  Well, not alone you can't, that's for sure.  But I have a pretty good idea on how a lot of people, each providing a steady but small, almost insignificant amount of money on a weekly basis can move mountains in causing the gospel of salvation to be preached worldwide.  I call it the $5.00 a week plan.  To learn more, keep reading.

A whole host of quality Christian evangelical and teaching ministries have sprung up around the world, and a lot of them are non-denominational or inter-denominational.  They all serve to spread the gospel and help nourish and disciple Christians around the world. Below are listed the three most effective and far reaching  major non-denominational international evangelistic organizations.  If every believer using this site for spiritual nourishment, stirred by the only major request Jesus asked in return for his "free gift" of salvation, were to give $5.00 a week on a rotational basis to each organization listed below (so each received $5.00 a month), each organization would receive hundreds of thousands of dollars a month, maybe even millions of dollars a month.  On the fourth week try sending $2.50 to Mission Aviation Fellowship (and then send the other $2.50 to the Jews for Jesus organization at http://www.jewsforjesus.org or to another good Messianic evangelistic ministry, Albert Israeli's MESSIAH FOR ISRAEL MINISTRIES, at: http://messiahforisrael.com . So that other $2.50 (along with $2.50 to Mission Aviation Fellowship) could go to one of the two major Messianic Jewish evangelistic organizations I just mentioned above for the fourth week in this $5 a week plan.)   Then repeat the whole $5.00 a week giving plan when the next month rolls around, and so on.

    These amounts may seem insignificant but when the hundred of users of this site all do the same thing, it adds up to thousands of dollars a month.  This is a major way we can be "united" in our giving to cause the gospel to make a huge impact on this evil world.  And when "this gospel of the kingdom" makes a huge impact on this evil world--it will hasten Jesus Christ's 2nd coming (cf. Matthew 24:14-15).  Doesn't that thought excite you?  It does me.  So how about it?  Are you up to $5.00 a week? The three major international evangelistic organizations that are most effectively blanketing the world with the gospel are listed below:

1.                                EVANGELISM:  Campus Crusade for Christ International's JESUS Film Project (http://www.jesusfilm.org/easygift).  To learn more about this major international evangelistic tool, click on http://www.UNITYINCHRIST.COM/whyjesus.htm .  Many Christian churches and denominations now support this worthy organization, and many Christian churches are being planted around the world as a direct result of their efforts coupled to the Lord's massive calling of people through the JESUS film.  Their address is THE JESUS FILM PROJECT, PO BOX 628222, ORLANDO, FLORIDA  32862-9841.  To learn more from them click on the above hypertexts.

2.                                CHRISTIAN VERSION OF C.A.R.E.:  Samaritan's Purse.  Online: http://www.samaritanspurse.org ."To learn more about this incredible work of Christian caring and evangelism log onto their site, email them and ask if they could send you Franklin Graham's autobiography, which will thoroughly describe this work of God and how it got started.  They will send it free of charge."  To preview that book, log onto http://www.UNITYINCHRIST.COM/evangelism/samaritan_purse.htm

Mission Aviation Fellowship, P.O. Box 3202
Redlands, CA  92373-0998.  For a description of this group that assists and supplies evangelists in remote parts of the world, click on "What is Evangelism?" and then on "Mission Aviation Fellowship".   They are a small group that has a far-reaching effect on evangelism.

This is an abbreviated description of some of the three major international non-denominational evangelistic organizations and one organization that lends support to all of them, Mission Aviation Fellowship.

Buy War Bonds!!!

On American soil during World War II support for the  entire United States war effort being made by our combined armed forces overseas was phenomenally large.  The Air Force, Navy, Army and Marines were all loved and supported equally, even though friendly rivalry in support and feelings of loyalty existed.  Adolph Hitler in Germany and Tojo in Japan were the leaders of two very evil empires that wanted to dominate and crush the free world. These evil empires would ended up killing multiple millions of people before they were defeated.  The Bible shows us in many places that the physical creation and physical events often mirror similar spiritual realities. For example, Satan has an invisible evil empire which rules over this physical world and its governments.  The apostle Paul says to us in Ephesians 6:12 "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against wicked spirits in high places."  Paul goes on to instruct us in Ephesians 6:13-21 how we Christians are to put on "the whole armour of God."  If war were only on the physical plane, then the apostle Paul would never have penned those instructions for us. Jesus himself in his revelation to John on the Isle of Patmos said this whole world (which would include its governments and many of its religious organizations) is deceived by Satan.  Jesus in Revelation 12:9 states,  "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world."  In Matthew 28:18-20 Jesus basically gave his church--the body of Christ--their and our marching orders--to take and preach the gospel of salvation to the entire world--and to baptize and then disciple those who favorably respond, nurturing and strengthening them in the Word.  In that effort, we often find we are in direct opposition to Satan, his evil forces, and his invisible evil empire.  In Matthew 24:14 Jesus directly prophecied that "this gospel of the kingdom" would go to the entire world, and then the end would come.  That end is described in verses 15-31 of Matthew 24, the end of Satan's evil age which invisibly rules over mankind.  In promoting the gospel of salvation, which is the gospel of the kingdom, we are waging spiritual warfare directly against Satan's evil empire.  When we are finished with that job, Jesus says he'll come and remove Satan and his evil empire from the world scene (cf. Revelation 19:11-21; 20:1-3).

I've listed three major international evangelistic organizations that are spreading "this gospel of the kingdom, the gospel of salvation," around the world--huge spiritual harvests are being made, hundreds of thousands of new believers are being born-again into the heavenly kingdom of God as I write.  These evangelistic organizations are a direct spiritual equivalent to the Air, Naval, Army and Marine forces we had in WWII.  They are moving on targets, taking ground successfully in the active war the body of Christ is waging in promoting the gospel worldwide in these end-times.

Now I wish to make another analogy to help you understand--something that's in your vital interest.  Jesus said that when we give in this war effort, he will give back to us--both now in this age, but especially in the age to come, pressed down and overflowing.  He told us to invest in our eternal future, where moth and rust doth not corrupt.  Many of us in the United States are concerned about retirement, and are investing for it, 401K plans and what have you.  Is there a spiritual equivalent here as well?  The Bible is full of them.  Lets look back to World War II in our analogy again.  We wanted our boys to win.  We wanted Hitler and Tojo defeated along with their evil empires, and for world peace and prosperity to reign supreme.  How much more should we want Jesus to reign supreme, bringing world peace and prosperity to this sin-sick, evil and hurting world?  Back in World War II we Americans had a way to put our money where out mouths and sentiments were, in support of our boys and girls in the armed forces.  How?--by buying War Bonds, U.S. Saving's bonds the United States government was selling to help finance the war effort, to help pay for the troops and equipment of a fully mobilized nation at war.  Our front-line troops needed food, medical equipment, ships, submarines, aircraft carriers and ships of all kinds, aircraft of all types, tanks and vehicles of all types, artillery, ammunition by the millions of tons.  Even Hollywood mobilized their efforts to encourage everyone to buy War Bonds, which would mature sometime after the War, as well as pay dividends.  Jesus has shown us in his Word that when we invest in his War effort; we are investing in legitimate Christian evangelism and we are buying spiritual War Bonds that will pay huge benefits with eternal rewards beyond measure, based upon what has been contributed.  Jesus says, "to him who gives little, he will receive little, to him that gives much, he or she will receive much."  How much is much to a guy who owns the Universe?  Good question!!  This website lists some valuable spiritual "War Bonds" that will pay huge dividends in the eternal Kingdom of God, for the bearers of those War Bonds.  While no one on this earth may notice when you contribute to one of these aforementioned evangelistic organizations, Jesus notices, and he will repay for the investment.  And if you've studied the Word, you will notice that Jesus equates what you give with your means to give.  Many of you that are reading this may not have that much to spare in our budgets--I certainly don't.  It's not so much the amount that counts but your willingness to give freely that which you can-so the Lord can bless and multiply that amount for his greater purposes to thwart Satan's attack which is an effort to gain a foothold and push the Body of Christ and the Church underground.

  The $5.00 a week plan I mentioned will add up to a huge eternal benefit over time, as well as help supply Jesus Christ's front-line battle troops who are marching across third world countries, spreading the gospel and harvesting souls, bringing thousands of new Christian brothers and sisters into the body of Christ--precious people we'll spend eternal life with.  Can you put a price on this war effort?  Will Jesus look at our efforts and be able to compare them with the patriotic efforts of Americans during World War II, and be proud of us?  Or will he be somewhat ashamed?  Our nation in the US is no less wealthy than it was for our parents and grandparents during World War II. There should be no excuse!  So Buy War Bonds!!!  Invest in your future!  Invest in the spiritual war effort of Jesus Christ!  Don't forget, your future will go on forever.   

          Presented here on this site are some ways to bless those less fortunate than we Americans are with the precious saving gospel of Jesus Christ.  Be one of those Christians who use this Christian website to its full potential, as a genuine pump-priming instrument for promoting the gospel of Jesus Christ powerfully worldwide--without even having to leave your front door.

          AND DON'T  FORGET, WITH WHAT DR. DOBSON TOLD US IN HIS LETTER ABOVE, WE MAY NOT HAVE MUCH TIME TO GET THE JOB JESUS HAS GIVEN US TO DO ACCOMPLISHED BEFORE A REAL FAMINE OF THE WORD OF GOD SWEEPS THE EARTH.  GIVE THAT SOME SERIOUS THOUGHT.  THE TIMES, THEY ARE A CHANGIN'.

 And if this site is steadily nourishing your walk with Jesus, and you'd like to contribute a little into the priming-bucket on a steady basis or as a one-time gift, your money will be used to help pay for some of the operational costs of running and maintaining the site.  (Should you mail anything to this site, please do not mail cash.  Make checks out to UNITYINCHRIST.  This site is a not-for-profit organization.)
