The World At Our Doorstep

By David J. Stewart | March 2014

Philippians 2:20-21 and Matthew 4:19, “For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state. For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ's. ... And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

       Every New Testament Church should support missionaries. Since churches are composed of individual born-again believers, then every individual Christian ought to support missionaries as well. We ought to have a GLOBAL, REGIONAL (Acts 13:4; 2nd Corinthians 8:5) and LOCAL vision. Acts 1:8, “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”

Matthew 4:19, “And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

The Word of God ought to ignite a passion in every Christian believer to surrender ourselves to the Lord, and instill a passion for investing in missions work by giving. Acts 13:4, “So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed unto Seleucia; and from thence they sailed to Cyprus.” 2nd Corinthians 8:5, “And this they did, not as we hoped, but first gave their own selves to the Lord, and unto us by the will of God.” When you pray for missionaries and give financially to support their work, that makes you a co-laborer together with them in the Lord. God will reward you as if you were on the mission field yourself. Mark 9:41, “For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.”

*Make sure that you only donate to genuine Christian missionaries who are obeying The Great Commission, like BIMI (Baptist International Missions, Inc) and not a scam fat-cat charity that pays it's executives 6-digit salaries! Thankfully, BIMI is King James Bible only. Amen! BIMI has about 7,000 churches and Christians who supports approximately 1,000 missionaries. If you desire to give to the work of Jesus Christ, this is where I recommend that you give. These Independent Fundamental Baptist missionaries need OUR HELP!

The loneliest place in the world is the human heart if there is no love. The way to truly be rich is to help somebody else...

“Missionary zeal does not grow out of intellectual beliefs, nor out of theological argument, but out of love.” Roland Allen

The world is filled with confused people. Satan deliberately confuses people by publishing hundreds of Bibles, starting umpteen false religions and convincing people that he doesn't really exist. There is a great need for missionaries in the world. A missionary is a born-again believer who is sent out to preach the gospel. In a sense we are all missionaries (Matthew 28:19-20). I've been in numerous churches where they have a sign as you leave the building which reads, “You are now entering the mission field.” I love that!

“We will never have enough resources, staff, buildings, events, or activities to reach all the people in our community, much less the peoples of the world. But we will always have enough people, even if they seem like the wrong people.” David Platt

Colossians 4:3, “Withal PRAYING also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds.”
What Door Does God Want You To Go Through?

THE FOUR PARTS OF GIVING

GENEROUSLY — God is never stingy with me (2nd Corinthians 9:6-7a)

JOYFULLY — Giving is my privilege (2nd Corinthians 9:7b)

PRAYERFULLY — I will pray for the missionaries I support (2nd Corinthians 9:8)

CONSISTENTLY — The missionaries count on my faithfulness (2nd Corinthians 8:9)

2nd Corinthians 9:6-9, “But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.”

The King James Bible Has No Errors In It!

Are Only The Original Manuscripts Without Error?

*The Word of God is the Christian's spiritual GYROSCOPE: A universally mounted spinning wheel that offers resistance to turns in any direction. A gyroscope gauge is used on every airplane, so that no matter which direction the plan is going, even if upside down or out of control, the pilot always knows which direction to go. Likewise, no matter which direction life may send us, the Word of God will always point us in the right direction! Psalms 119:105, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”


“The clock of life is wound but once, and no man has the power,
 to tell just when the hands will stop, at late or early hour;
To lose one's wealth is sad indeed, to lose one's health is more,
to lose your soul is such a loss, that no one can restore.”


How Much Do You Love Jesus? (MP3 sermon by Brother Lester Roloff)

General William Booth (1829-1912) of the SALVATION ARMY was hindered and unable to get to the packed stadium where thousands of people were waiting to hear him speak. General Booth jotted down a quick note and instructed to have it read aloud to the congregation. Here's what William Booth wrote...

Dear Delegates of the Salvation Army Convention:
OTHERS!
Signed, General Booth. 


Lord, let me live from day to day
In such a self-forgetful way
That even when I kneel to pray,
My prayer shall be for others.
Others, Lord, yes, others;
Let this my motto be.
Help me to live for others
That I may live like Thee.


“A man's reach should always exceed his grasp!” Robert Browning (1812-1989)

Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

So Much The More As Ye See The Day Approaching (MP3 by Dr. Jack Hyles)
(We ought to work, pray and love even harder as we see the end years of our life approaching)

“You show me a person to whom Heaven becomes real, and this Book [King James Bible] becomes real, and God becomes real, and Hell becomes real, and salvation becomes real, and I'll show you a person that will so much the more serve God as he sees the day approaching!”
—Pastor Jack Hyles, a quote from the awesome MP3 sermon titled,
So Much The More As Ye See The Day Approaching.”


Covet The Best Gifts!
(an excellent practical MP3 sermon by Pastor Jack Hyles)

Jeremiah 45:5,“And seekest thou great things for thyself? seek them not: for, behold, I will bring evil upon all flesh, saith the LORD: but thy life will I give unto thee for a prey in all places whither thou goest.”

The gifts of the Spirit are not given TO ME, but THROUGH ME!
I don't covet the best gifts for me; but rather, for OTHERS, so that they may be given through me!


“The spirit of Christ is the spirit of missions. The nearer we get to Him, the more intensely missionary we become.”
―Henry Martyn

What You Should Expect From Your Missionaries:

By Missionary Phil Hunt, Zambia, Africa

  1. That They Endure Hardship. (Expect hardships; It is not optional.)

  2. That They Take Risks. (You must expect risks and take them for Jesus Christ.)

  3. That They Be Courageous.

  4. That They Resist Discouragement. (The Bible's message is to literally come to Jesus and have more problems. There is no promise of becoming healthy, wealthy and wise just because you got saved. Resist discouragement. Don't quit!)

  5. That They Avoid Entanglements. (This includes both sinful and civilian entanglements. There will always be things that divert our attention, consume our thinking and drain our energies, but we must not lose sight of our goal. Keep the main thing the main thing! And that is to please God Who enlisted us as a soldier.)

  6. That They Obey The Rules. (Be under God's authority. It requires discipline.)

  7. That They Be Disciplined.

  8. That They Work Hard. (The fields aren't harvested because of lazy workers. Persevere! Continue to sow the seed of the gospel and water those seeds.)

And every missionary should expect the same things from the church body that sent and supports them!

What You owe your church Missionaries:

  1. You Owe Them Intense, Unfailing,, Prayer Support.

  2. You Owe Them Your Allegiance.

  3. You Owe Them Adequate Funding.

  4. You Owe Your Missionaries Sanctuary.

  5. You Owe Them The Confidence That You Are Doing The Same Things Expected Of Them Locally At Home.

  6. You Owe Them Help! Raise Up Reinforcements. Go And Serve By Their Side.

“The Great Commission is not an option to be considered; it is a command to be obeyed.” ―Hudson Taylor
