|Back to Chapter 7,
Welcome to the family of God Denise and Jill, two Ethiopian
teenagers. After sharing the
with Denise she prayed and received Jesus into
her heart as Lord and Savior. Her friend Jill was standing listening
to us share the Gospel with Denise. After we prayed with Denise,
Jill said, "I want to receive Jesus also." We prayed with her and
she too received Jesus as her Lord and Savior.
Welcome to the family of God Kevin and Billy. Two
people in Tulsa, OK I shared
with and who received Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord as a result.
Welcome to the family of God Jack. One day while
sharing at Fresno City College I shared with a man by the name of
Jack from my tract
I developed this tract, not with the purpose of replacing the 4SLís,
but because of a need I saw for this tract as a result of the
information gained through two years of door to door and on the
campus surveying. In this section, listen to the answers given by
people to the field survey. Next, read the tract
and then read Chapter 7 in this section titled, Converted Ex-Con,
to see how it addresses comments made by people through the survey.
When I went over the second meaning of receiving Jesus as Lord which
is, Receiving Jesus As Lord Means To Repent Of Your Sins, I
read 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
to Him in which the Apostle Paul gives us an example of what the New
Testament means by sin,
"Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor
idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals,
nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor
swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God."
When I hit
he said, "The Bible condemns homosexuality?" The word here in the
Greek for homosexuality is
It is a compound word broken down to
male and koivth
meaning sexual intercourse. The two words combined means a
male having sexual intercourse with another male. I explained to him
that homosexuality was God's judgment on man, the result of
rebellion against God. I read to him Romans 1:18-27. I explained to
him that God created sex, that sex in itself is not wrong when
practiced within marriage. But I
further explained to him that when men refuse to acknowledge God in
their lives that He gives them over to a depraved mind to do those
things which are not proper or sanctioned by God such as men
committing indecent acts with men and woman with woman.
Homosexuality is the result of rebellion against God, not sanctioned
This generation has no concept of what the Bible
teaches about morality. Not only that, but this generation has no
knowledge of the Bible at all. Once a fellow, American born,
employee asked me who Adam and Eve was? These kind of questions and
comments not only led me to develop
but also to write a book titled
Teaches About God,
This book talks about the creation of the universe and man, the fall
of man, God's redemption for fallen man and how we know that what
the Bible teaches is absolutely true over all other religious
claims. Every Book mentioned in the catalog was written as a result
of needs recognized through forty-three years of on the field
When I asked Jack if he would like to receive
Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord he said yes. We prayed together and
Jack prayed and received Jesus into his heart.
A few weeks ago I shared the Gospel with a man by
the name of Carlos at an indoor mall. Carlos shared with me that he
had attended a Baptist Church for three years and knew about Jesus'
salvation for him but had never receive Him. We prayed together and
Carlos received Jesus as his Savior and Lord.
A week ago I shared the Gospel with a teenager at
a outdoor park by the name of Wesley. Wesley asked me, "If I donít
receive Jesus, can I go to heaven?" I explained to Wesley, "No!
There is no way to get to Heaven except through Jesus. Jesus is the
only way and ticket to Heaven. You must receive Him in order to have
eternal life and go to heaven." With that Wesley prayed with me and
received Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
After sharing the Gospel for one semester at
Fresno State University, the Lord told me it was time for a harvest.
The following week I led six people to Jesus Christ as Savior and
Lord. In two of these cases the person was wavering so I
re-emphasized the significance of Jesusí Physical Resurrection. As a
result they decided to receive Jesus as Savior and Lord.
"Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we shall reap
if we do not grow weary."
Welcome Denise, Jill, Jack, Kevin. Billy, Carlos
and Wesley to the family of God. Please pray for these children of
