A Minute To Spare?
This is not a long article but I feel an important one and part of why there will be gnashing of teeth. The Lord has shown me there are many people who have read and seen the materials this ministry distributes concerning the three spots on the body of Christ and have kind of ho-hummed them. This has been weighing on me for some time so I decided to share some information and a testimony that will speak to this situation.
The salvation message is that which is closest to my heart so Im sharing a testimony sent to me by a man who has been in the service of the Lord. In the presentation I mention that the Lord told me not to go into any church and assume the pastor (the leaders) are saved. This testimony certainly confirms what the Lord told me. This testimony also confirms what God revealed about the spark or light that enters our bodies as revealed in the salvation section of the presentation. I received two e-mails that make up his testimony.
Beginning of testimony:
Through your demonstration of Gods Covenant, I learned what was needed for my salvation. I have made my confession of faith to another and I am saved!!!
PS- You're right about the electric charge
I wrote asking to use his testimony and he wrote back.
Of course you can use my testimony. I pray that it can be helpful in encouraging others to gain salvation. Roy, you and I are in the service of the Lord. We serve at His pleasure and His will be done.
There is one other part of my testimony that I would like to share with you. The very night before I was saved, I prayed to the Lord and asked him "to help me know Him better"; I asked the Lord for direct guidance as to who was truly preaching his word and who was not. I complained to the Lord that MOST of the churches AND Christians I knew held many ideas and beliefs, that seemed to me, to be more from man than from GOD. This bothered and confused me a great deal. I am only a man and don't know the mind of God, so I asked God, "Show me what I need to know and show me who understands your word as it was intended". I went on to ask the Lord for wise discernment and for guidance and I asked for one more thing...I asked that the Lord provide me all these things in a clear way so that even a child could understand. That way I wouldn't get it wrong. The next morning I received an e-mail from a person I only slightly know, and it seemed very "out of the blue" because it wasn't a continuation of any conversation of topic. It was completely non-secular. This e-mail led me to your website and I watched "The White Horse of Rev 19 " movie followed by the "Demonstration of God's Covenant" movie. As I proceeded through these movies, I found myself copiously weeping (which was completely out of my frame of reference). However at the same time it was like light bulbs going off in my head, things I never understood before, suddenly made crystal clear. When I finished watching the movies, I understood exactly what I needed to do and the next day made my confession of faith to another and was saved! The Lord works in mysterious ways and does answer prayers (even ones that are a bit rambling and long winded...ha ha ha).
Thank you again and I would like to be on your update list.
Yours in Christ,
End of testimony.
I was told second hand that a person who had seen the materials on salvation said that the church does not have time to search out those in itself who are not saved. This has weighed heavily on my heart and is a tragic, tragic lie!
It takes less than a minute to draw confessions from people in a meeting, as explained in the presentation. Here is an example of how to do it that is really longer than it needs to be:
Good morning (afternoon - evening) every one! It is a great day in the Lord! We as Christians should be holding onto our confession. So today I have a question for all of you and I want a Yes or a No answer that truly comes from your heart. Everyone can speak their answer to me all at once, so do not be afraid to answer Yes or No. I will ask all of you the question, wait a small amount of time for you to think, and then hold up my hand when I want you to answer me. Ready? Here is the question, Do you believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins on the cross and that God raised Him from the dead? (Wait 5 seconds.) Raise your hand. (Wait 2 seconds for answer.) - At this point in time you will have taken about a minute to execute all this. My wife and I timed each other going through this and it was about a minute.
You could, depending on the type of meeting you are in, then have the people meditate on the Lord, looking for signs that the Lord did something in someone. Weeping is one sign. You could also just go on with the meeting. You can see that you can inject other expressions of Jesus divinity and not exceed a minute by much. You can also use different words than I did to bring them to the proper question. Actually, you can draw confessions from a group of people in less than 30 seconds. Example:
Praise the Lord! I want everyone in this room to look at me and answer my question with a "Yes" or "No" answer. Do you believe Jesus Christ was God manifest in the flesh and that He is alive and seated at the right hand of God? (3 seconds for answer) Going slowly, this takes less than 30 seconds!
If every church in the world on a given date would take one minute to draw a confession of faith from every person attending, we would (in a 24 hour period) have the greatest miracle that has ever existed in the world since Jesus went to the cross! A big percentage of the 48 percent figure of believers missing would be drastically reduced.
Do you have a minute to spare?
