“What Can I Do To Help?”
By David J. Stewart
Proverb 18:1,2, “Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom. A fool hath no delight in understanding...”
People often ask me what they can do to help save America, i.e., fight evil, win souls, help the poor, and make a difference for God. I will be quite frank, I am daily frustrated that there is not more I can do myself. I have many burdens. The important thing is that we all look at what talents and resources that God has provided to us, and then do what WE CAN individually for God. Everybody's area of ministry is different.
Certainly, there is much we can all do; but, the key word is “DESIRE.” All the talent in the world means nothing without desire. Carefully notice that the word “triumph” begins with “try” and ends with “umph.” Hence, nothing will ever happen until someone tries to make something happen, and that often requires a lot of dedication, time, money and hard work. This is true of anything worthwhile in life. Many people want the glory and glamour; but few are willing to pay the price.
I once asked a man how he became so good at playing the banjo, to which he replied, “Well, let's just say I missed a lot of TV.” Proverb 18:1 tells us that DESIRE is the key to accomplishment. The Apostle Paul was without a doubt the greatest missionary who ever lived; but he suffered greatly for his ministry, even to the point of despairing life itself (2nd Corinthians 1:8,9).
The Lord has graciously blessed my laborers for Him. This website now receives over 12,000 visitors each day. Praise God! I never dreamed this would happen. Lest I should be exalted above measure, the Lord showed me a Harry Potter website that receives 1,300,000 visitors per day! Don't be deceived, Satan is using the Harry Potter series to prepare young people for the New World Order, i.e., to receive the coming Antichrist.
The Devil has attacked me relentlessly, painfully so, trying to destroy my labors for the Lord Jesus Christ. By God's grace this ministry will continue. We need many John the Baptists today, crying in the wilderness of cyberspace for men to repent toward God, to be forgiven of their sins. The great need of this hour is preaching preachers! 2nd Timothy 4:2a, "Preach the word." This we must do! If you want to help save America, PREACH THE WORD!
I simply want to get the truth out and wake people up. I'm still waking up myself. Searching for the truth is a never-ending process. I didn't start waking up until I was 35-years-old in 2002. I've just scratched the tip of the iceberg of truth.
It will be a cold day in Hell before I ever sell anything on my website. I'm so sick of covetous believers. I wish I could visit a Baptist church nowadays that doesn't make an issue of money. I've had several people ask me how much money I make from my website—NEVER A PENNY! I want everyone to know that this is a labor of love and sincerity. When you sell something, it is a conflict of interest. To the same degree that a minister is covetous, to that same degree he will censor the truth. Guaranteed! My ministry is the Lords, I do it for Him, and I trust Him to keep it going. It only costs me a couple hundreds dollars per year for my 5 GB sized website. I get upset at these so-called Christian 1 MB sized websites that beg for money to keep up with their “high expenses.” Oh please! Who's kidding who?
I'm just a humble sinner (or a loose nut behind the wheel of life... lol) that's trying to make it day-by-day, and without the Lord Jesus I'd be absolutely nothing. The only good in me is Jesus Christ.
What Is That In Thine Hand?
God came to Moses and asked him to lead the Israelites out of bondage in Egypt. Moses didn't think he was the right man for the job, so he began to make excuses (Exodus 4:1). Moses said, "You've got the wrong man Lord, I'm just a shepherd living out here in the desert." Moses didn't think he could do what God had asked of him. Moses was focusing upon his weaknesses (as most people do), "And Moses said unto the LORD, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue" (Exodus 4:10). God asked Moses ... "What is that in thine hand? And he (Moses) said, A rod."
This is a miraculous Bible truth! God didn't need a man with a trained voice, or a mighty man, or a man with a suave personality; rather, God just needed a yielded man! All Moses had was the stick in his hand; but that's all God needed. It was through that rod that God performed all the miracles in Egypt before Pharaoh and in the Wilderness. It was through that rod of Moses that God parted the Red Sea. It was through that rod that God brought forth water from the rock to quench the thirst of the Jews. It was through that rod that God performed the 10 Plagues upon Egypt. So, I begin this article by asking you... what is in thine hand? What talents has God given you? What resources do you have? What are your abilities? Only YOU can answer these questions. There is something you can do for God that no one else can do.
Earnestly Pray for Me Personally, and for My Labors in the Lord
Many people have asked how they can help me with my ministry, or personally. More than anything else in the world, I need for your prayers. I believe the Bible is God's Word, and the Bible teaches power through prayer. Many people today seek God's power through televangelism, charismatic experiences, multi-point programs, idols, good luck charms, meditation, charitable donations, self-improvement, chants, and other schemes. As Simon the former sorcerer found out in Acts 8:18-20, you can't buy God's power! It is not merchandise. God is not a genie at our disposal. God is a Person, Who loves us and sent His dear Son to pay for our sins. God's power comes through prayer, which is asking.
In James 5:17-18 we read that Elijah was “a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly” and God answered his prayers. God is encouraging us to pray, reminding us that Elijah was no different from us. Elijah prayed sincerely, and God answered. Vine's Complete Expository Dictionary Of Old And New Testament Words says concerning the word “earnestly” in James 5:17...
In Jas. 5:17 the dative case of the noun proseuche is translated "earnestly" (KJV), in connection with the corresponding verb, lit., "he prayed with prayer" (RV, "fervently"), implying persevering continuance in prayer with fervor... (ISBN: 0-7852-1160-8, pg. 191).
Thus, I desperately ask for your sincere prayers on a continual basis, i.e., persevering continuance in prayer with fervor. I cannot save anybody. I cannot make people see the light. But God can, and will, speak to people's hearts and do great things of God's people will prayer, not just for my ministry, but for others as well. America is dying for praying Christians. Jesus' disciples never asked, “Lord, teach us to preach,” nor did they ever say to Jesus, “Lord, teach us to teach”; but they did request, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples” (Luke 11:1). Could it be that prayer is more important than preaching and teaching? Yes, most definitely, “for without me ye can do nothing” our Lord said in John 15:5. Please pray for me and my labors in the Lord, as I pray for you, my web visitors.
Please don't misunderstand James 5:17. You don't have to believe that God is going to answer your prayer to get the answer, you just need to have enough faith to SINCERELY KEEP ASKING as Elijah did. In Acts Chapter 12, a group of believers gathered to pray for Peter's release from prison, and the Lord worked a miracle; thus, answering their prayer. When Peter came to the place where they were gathered together praying, Rhoda answered the door. She ran to tell everyone that Peter was at the door and they said... "Thou art mad" (Acts 12:15). They literally called her crazy! Why was it so crazy that God answered their prayers? They had so little faith that they didn't even think God was listening to them; but, they had just enough faith TO PRAY. Prayer is faith. This is a fascinating portion of Scripture. Even the smallest amount of sincere faith can cause great things to happen in the Lord.
Again, I desperately ask for your sincere prayers on a continual basis, i.e., persevering continuance in prayer with fervor. Please make time to pray daily. If you truly want to help me with this ministry, or personally, then this is what I ask from you with all my heart. I know God answers prayer, and that the prayers of His saints will effectuate God's blessing and power. There are dead churches and ministries all over the world, that speak the lingo, and put on a good show; but they are powerless, serving the Lord in their own strength. The Apostle Paul said in 2nd Corinthians 12:10, "for when I am weak, then am I strong." Thus, I want to be weak, and unable, and unqualified, and an underachiever—because then Jesus Christ gets all the glory. I'm just a hell-deserving sinner, nothing more, who is so blessed to have Jesus Christ as my Savior, Who wonderfully lives within my soul. Without Jesus Christ I am nothing, "For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself" (Galatians 6:3). If there is anything great to be done for God in this life, it will be the Spirit of God that does it, and not us. Zechariah 4:6 declares, "Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts."
PLEASE PRAY for God's Holy Spirit to work in people's hearts through this ministry of love—for lost souls to come to Jesus Christ for salvation, for believers to be inspired to serve God, for lives to be changed for the Lord, for more labourers to be sent forth into the harvest (Matthew 9:37-38), for God to bring swift judgment upon those leaders within our government who are hardened evil criminals, for God to help those government leaders (such as congressman Ron Paul) who are true Americans and loyal to the American people, for believers to awake to righteousness and join the spiritual battle, for preachers to start preaching against sin again, for believers to aggressively contend for the faith, for false religions to be exposed, for THE TRUTH to get out! We are living in a prayerless generation! Remember, God ONLY answers KNEE-MAIL.
I ask for your prayers, for me personally, and for this international ministry. I never dreamed this website would reach so many people for the Lord. I don't want to go it alone without the prayers of other believers, lest my work be in vain. I am only a man with a website, but God is able and willing to do great things THROUGH PRAYER.
I do not agree with everything which Alex Jones promotes, or says; BUT, he is a blessing from God to the American people. His website is at www.infowars.com. Also see, www.prisonplanet.com. Alex Jones is more than just another guy making comments on the radio, he's a fighter for freedom. Alex gets out there in the evildoer's faces and stands against them. Alex Jones is without a doubt doing more to save America than 99% of the preachers and pastors in this country. Why? Because he is doing something to wake people up and make a difference! Alex Jones is being heard. Honorable politicians such as Congressman Ron Paul and Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney keep in close contact with Alex Jones are are working together to save America from imminent destruction.
Tragically, the average American has their head stuck where the sun don't shine. The average pastor doesn't know what time of day it is concerning the evils which are destroying America. I would highly recommend that you read Dr. Ron Paul's articles if you want to know what's going on in our government, and they way things should be, and were meant to be by our founding fathers.
With due respect to the Office of the President, George W. Bush is a mass-murderer, a thief, and a scoundrel; yet, ignorant and compromised pastors all across America have a blind loyalty for a President which is a member of the Satanic Skull and Bones group, and of the sinister Bohemian Grove organization. Bush's administration has funded over $1,500,000,000 to Planned Parenthood (the largest provider of abortion services in America) during his presidential term (and you're naive enough to believe that he's against abortion). Wake up! The average Christian can't handle the reality that our government has been hijacked by criminals who are committed to the destruction of America.
Stop voting Republican or Democrat! Regardless, those two parties will ALWAYS control The White House, because BOTH parties are evil to the core, and there's NOT a dime's difference between them at the highest levels (i.e., the New World Order thugs control them both). Anybody with any knowledge at all knows that the 2000 presidential election was stolen. The system is corrupted with evil through and through. Supreme Court?... you've got to be kidding me!... you means Supreme Puppets! Those imposters are told what to judge, when to judge and how to judge. It's no coincidence that every time the abortion issue is voted on that the results are 5-to-4 in favor of keeping abortion legal. Oh Please!, who do you think you're kidding? Oh that's right, the tens-of-millions of dumb citizens in America. Listen friend, HELL WILL BE HOT ENOUGH for those rotten jerks who vote pro-choice (i.e., pro-murder).
GET INFORMED! Learn the truth about 911. Learn the truth about Iraq. Learn the truth about the nonexistent War On Drugs. Learn the truth about our abandoned POWS in Vietnam. Learn the truth about the godless Federal Reserve Bank. Learn the truth about the Pharmaceutical industry. But you say, "Doesn't Romans 16:19 tell us to be, 'wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil'." Yes, of course; but it doesn't mean what you think it means. We shouldn't be familiar with sin, i.e., from practicing sin. That's what the Apostle Paul is saying. You're crazy if you think God wants us to be isolated, ignorant, and complacent about the evils in OUR society or corruption in OUR government.
Some believers have the insane idea that it's not our place to fight against government evil. Nothing could be further from the truth. The truth is that most professed Christians are yellow-bellied, spineless, cowards, who dare not make a spectacle of themselves by going against the common consensus of mainstream APOSTATE Christianity. John the Baptist stood alone in the wilderness for God, because no one wanted to stand with him. Daniel ended up in the lion's den alone, because he was the only one who cared enough about God to pray. Look, it is your responsibility and mine to expose the evils in society and in government. But you say, "Oh, there are things in government which we don't understand, so we must be careful about criticizing such things." Do me a favor ...shut up! Anyone with a brain and an ounce of care knows that abortion is murder. Anyone who pay taxes knows that our tax-dollars are being stolen and squandered.
Here's a video of Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney asking Donald Rumsfeld what they did with a missing $2,300,000,000,000 from 1999!!! Then they stole another $1,100,000,000,000 in 2000!!! That is OUR money! We are idiots if we don't get upset and DEMAND answers. And yes Mr. President, what about DynCorp's sex-slaves? There needs to be a big trial in Washington, and many politicians executed for their treasonous crimes against the American people, their murderous crimes against the Iraqi people, and their sexual crimes against children. We have been lied to, our children have been exploited as paid mercenaries to kill the innocent in Iraq, our children are being taught how to have homosexual sex in the public school system, etc, etc, etc.
My website is hear to help you get informed; but it's only the tip of the iceberg. You must DESIRE the truth for yourself. Every generation must rediscover the truth for itself. We read in 2nd Thessalonians 2:9,10 that many people will be deceived by the Antichrist BECAUSE they don't love the truth... "Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved." Do you love the truth? Is there something in you that must know the truth, to get to the bottom and find out the truth of a matter? Every born-again believer should have such a DESIRE. People who care want the truth, and caring is the hallmark of a genuine Christian.
Only Support Genuine Local New Testament Churches!
The first thing I'd recommend to anyone is to support your local New Testament church, if there is one. What do I mean by "local New Testament church"? I mean a SOULWINNING church. I mean a church that ONLY uses the King James Bible. I mean a church that actively stands against and exposes evils and false religions. Good luck, there are only few such churches remaining, because they are so few genuine men of God these days. The pastor sets the spiritual barometer of the church. Most so-called "churches" in the United States have gone apostate!
If you CAN'T find a godly pastor in your area who is on-fire for God, soulwinning, preaching against sin, and contending for the faith in the local community—then perhaps you should START your own church! Jesus said in Matthew 18:20, "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." Many churches have been started in people's homes, garages, backyards, etc. Remember, a church is NOT a building, it's Christians coming together for the purpose of doing something for God to reach the community for Christ. Philemon 1:2, "And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house." Notice the words, "church in THY HOUSE." We need many new churches today, a different kind of church, because the traditional dead church is not doing anything to save America.
We need Billy Sunday type churches—alive, on fire for God, soulwinning, haters of sin, lovers of sinners, contending for the faith, separated from the sinful world, etc. The average church is a deadbeat social club of religious do-nothings and critics. A small group of soulwinning Christians going door-to-door to win lost souls to Christ is a church! This is what is often called an “Acts 20:20 vision,” where Paul went door-to-door soulwinning daily. Most people have no idea of what a church is supposed to be like. A church should be a hotbed of soulwinning, having a strong influence in the local community, reaching out to the needy, standing against sin, contending for the faith, and doing their best to reach lost sinners for Christ with the Gospel.
Sadly, the average church is dead—sin is not preached against, the pastor gives watered-down sermonettes, the women in the church wear pants, the teens listen to Devilish Christian rock, the men don't go soulwinning, false religions such as Roman Catholicism and Lutheranism are never exposed, they use the hell-spawned and blasphemous New International Version (NIV) of the Bible, and they criticize soulwinners and separated Christians. Whatever you do, DON'T support such a church! If people would stop supporting bad churches with lazy ministers, then they would be forced to do their JOBS. A church will never rise above the spirituality of the pastor, and that's the big problem in the world today—a lack of true men of God. Preachers are dime-a-dozen nowadays; but where are the men of God who hate sin, love people, and refuse to compromise concerning sin? God deliver us from money-hungry ministers who are afraid to step-on-toes by preaching against sin, and who never take the truth outside of the church walls.
One of the biggest problems in the world today is naive people who support dead churches. It's because most people want religion; but they don't really want a closer walk with God. Unlike religion, God expects you to do something about the truth. Religion is a form of entertainment; but genuine Biblical Christianity will change you, and people don't like to be changed. Since the truth makes most people uncomfortable, they don't want anything to do with the truth. The Word of God is full of Scriptural references attesting to this fact. Jesus stated in John 8:40, "But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth." Again again in John 8:45, "And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not." People refuse to come to Christ for salvation because they don't want to face the truth about their sins, "For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved" (John 3:20). The Apostle Paul said in Galatians 4:16, "Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?"
It is rare to find a church with a pastor who is zealous about the truth. This is evidence to the tragic apostate condition of the United States. I'd recommend an Independent Fundamental Baptist Church. "Independent" simply means they stand alone, not being part of a large denomination (such as the apostate Southern Baptist Convention). "Fundamental" means that they take the Bible literally, and don't teach doctrines that can't be backed up with Scriptures. And finally, "Baptist" because Baptists come closest to the Bible, in my opinion, than any other group. However, Being Baptist won't get anyone to Heaven, just as no religion will. Only through the blood of Jesus Christ can sins be taken away, not through any mortal minister or priest (1st Peter 1:18-19).
Be Careful With Your Money
There's a reason why charlatans, crooks, and con-artists make so much money pretending to be MINISTERS of righteousness. It's because people are ignorant and, well, stupid, to be honest. So if you want to help save America and do something for God, ideally it would be through a local New Testament church; BUT, please don't be a fool who gives money to a do-nothing, cowardly, compromised pastor or minister. I have a pet peeve about Christians who support neoevangelical ministries that do next to nothing for God. I am a firm believer in holding ministers 100% accountable for the money entrusted to them. This is true of ANY ministry or non-profit organization. A responsible pastor provides a monthly financial statement to his congregation to account for every penny donated to the church. If your church doesn't account for where the money goes, kindly ask the pastor or financial secretary to provide that information. If you don't get it... find another church!
If more believers would stop tithing to BAD churches, then more pastors would become honest and more con-artists would be forced to go to work for a living. There are many churches today, whose pastor regularly talks about reaching the lost for Christ, but there is no scheduled time in the church for its members to go soulwinning. They are playing church.
Don't Be Afraid to Stand Alone!
Sometimes we have to stand alone as believers. In fact, it's usually that way. Daniel was cast in the lion's den alone. Jeremiah was cast into the miry pit, and left to die, alone. John the Baptist was cast into prison alone. If you can't find a church in your area, then serve God alone, until you can find some likeminded believers to work with.
There is much we can do for God. I believe we ought to do as much as we can for the Lord. We must redeem the time. Every believer should look for ways to serve God. Sometimes people write me and thank my ministry team, folks... it's just me. It is true that 1% of all Christians do 99% of the work for the Lord (i.e., the soulwinning and contending for the faith).
There are some faithful ministries today, that are doing great works for God; but they're probably not the one's you're thinking about. The most popular "ministries" are usually scams, paying their executives 6-digit salaries (or more) and never preaching the Gospel of Christ. Watch Pat Roberson on the 700 Club sometime and you'll be disgusted. When he tells his viewers how to be saved, he vaguely mentions the word "sin." He avoids a lot of important things, like being "born-again" and the "blood of Jesus." He's leading people into religion without Christianity. I am leery of televangelists and you should be too! The Bible calls them "greedy dogs" in Isaiah 56:11. DON'T support any televangelists! They're all con-artists, at least the ones who can afford to be on TV. It costs them millions to make tens-of-millions. It's a sham.
Perhaps Start Your Own Website
If you want to make money, please don't exploit Christianity to do so. One man wrote me who said he was a long-time member of an Independent Baptist Church, had worked in law-enforcement for many years, and wanted to make a website to reach others in law-enforcement. I kindly wrote him back and told him I'd help him any way possible; but, NOT if he planned to make money from his website. To no surprise he never wrote back again, not even to thank me. This is where Christianity is at today, so many believers are covetous.
I'm saddened that more Independent Fundamental Baptist Churches DON'T have large websites (i.e., packed full of truth). A website is a ministry that operates 24/7. While you're sleeping, your website for the Lord is helping others. That's a great feeling. There's no way humanly possible that I could speak with thousands of people in one day, nor could I share with them the amount of information available to them on my website.
As mentioned earlier, I never accept donations, although many people have kindly offered. My work is for the Lord. I get upset when I see so-called "Christian" websites begging for donations due to the high cost of maintaining a website. Gimme a break! Don't be fooled, having a website shouldn't cost a lot. You may want to start your own website. It's not too difficult, it just requires a lot of patience. The most difficult part is getting started. The Devil's crowd has saturated the internet, why shouldn't God's children do the same? What takes time is the thousands-upon-thousands of hours of work which go into maintaining a large website (i.e., writing articles, doing research, answering e-mails, fixing dead hyperlinks, etc). However, your website doesn't have to be any bigger than what you want it to be. If you want lots of visitors, bigger is better. More articles means more chances that your website will contain what people are looking for in the search engines. Although I've invested well over 10,000 hours in this website, I've never regretted a moment of the time spent. You are welcome to copy/paste whatever you want from my website to yours ... the truth should always be free.
Also, you are welcome to promote and distribute my ministry freely (and THANK YOU!). Here's a page of free banners that you are welcome to copy/paste to your own website or webpage. I believe the truth should always be free.
Every Believer Should Have A Ministry!
If not a website, then how about starting a local soulwinning club? A husband and wife could organize a local soulwinning meeting, where the ladies and the men divide and go soulwinning in different areas. A church doesn't need a building, pews, an organ, etc. The idea of a church requiring a building is an illusion. The Christians in the book of Acts DIDN'T have a church building. If America is going to be salvaged, then INDIVIDUAL Christians are going to have to take the initiative to make something happen for the Lord, because most of our churches are ignorant, sidetracked, and dead. Increasingly, I can't find a good church to recommend to people when they write me asking for a referral. They're just not out there! One man who's on fire for God can do more than 10,000 churchgoers who are spiritually sleeping.
Perhaps start a homeless ministry or a prison ministry in your area.
Men should consider STREET PREACHING!

6.3 billion people
2/3 have yet to hear.
Do you have a world vision for souls? Are you interested in helping get the Gospel out to the world? Most missionaries are supported through missionary boards, who make sure they're getting the job done. It's a far better cause for your charitable contributions, than the ridiculous things which many people support. Perhaps you would like to serve in full-time Christian ministry yourself, as a missionary. Hyles-Anderson College is the place to prepare.
Expose the Cults!
I am saddened and wearied that hardly any Christians expose false religions, false prophets, false gods, and false Christs. Why are so many believers silent concerning the hellish monster of Catholicism? Over 1,000,000,000 people in this world are following the dreaded beast of Roman and Orthodox Catholicism. Oh, how we need Christians today who will contend for the faith (Jude 3). I am not advocating being unkind or rude to people. I am saying that we need to stand for the truth and let the chips fall where they may. Yes, people will be offended, because the truth is usually offensive. Over 1,000,000,000 lost souls are following the damnable Islamic Muslim religion, headed straight for an eternity in the Lake of Fire.
Ephesians 5:11 commands, "And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them." We're supposed to "reprove" (Greek: elencho, which means "to expose") all works of darkness. False religions are works of darkness, which lead people into Hell. Abortion is a work of darkness. Pornography is a work of darkness. Hollywood is a work of darkness. Rock-n-roll is a work of darkness. Walt Disney is a work of darkness.
Every Catholic Church should know that there is a fighting group of Christians in their local area exposing them. People need to be warned! Hell is real folks and 2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9 are frightening Scriptures... "In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord..." I marvel how some people say that Hell has no fire, or that Hell is just the grave. If that be true, then the Scriptures I just quoted you make no sense at all. As believers, we need to teach people the truth, WARNING them that there is a Hell burning with fire and brimstone, where lost sinners WILL spend eternity in torment!!! Is it nothing to you all ye that pass by (Lamentations 1:12).
Be Aggressive About Soulwinning!
Nothing else matters if we lose site of our precious Savior, "Unto you therefore which believe he is precious..." (1st peter 2:7). There are many ministries and non-profit organizations in the world today that have a form of godliness; but they deny the power thereof as the Bible states... "Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." That "power" is the GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." Please read, The Simple Gospel. It is NOT our efforts, or eloquent words, or education, that wins the lost to Christ... It is the Gospel. Our primary job as believers is NOT to help and feed the poor, it is to preach the Gospel to them. What good does it do to help the poor, lift up the fallen, cloth the naked, and comfort the feebleminded—if they die in their sins and go to Hell for all eternity?
Yet, tragically, MOST so-called ministries today place soulwinning as a last priority, if the Gospel is preached at all. There is a generic, mainstream false gospel being propagated today that simply requires people to "ask Jesus into their heart" or "commit one's life to Christ." That is a road to Hell. The Biblical Gospel EXCLUDES all forms of self-righteousness, including water baptism and the Mass. You'll never hear Pat Robertson or Benny Hinn criticize the Roman Catholic religion publicly on TV. Every unsaved Mormon and Jehovah's Witness believes that Jesus died, was buried and rose again. But they've ADDED doing good works to the Gospel, which then becomes a false gospel. Think about this, 95% of the unsaved religious people in America believe that Jesus died, was buried and rose again. The problem is that it is just religious information in their head, and they have never been born-again by trusting Jesus as the Christ in their heart. They have never acknowledged their woeful guilt of sin, for violating God's holy Law. They have added self-righteous works, such as water baptism and living an upright life, as part of their requirements to get to Heaven. They are lost.
The once famed army of soulwinners led by William Booth, known as the Salvation Army, has deteriorated into an organization that is far more Army than Salvation. It's all about money nowadays. How many Gospel tracts do you think the Salvation Army Santa Clause passes out each year? You know the answer ... NONE? How many firemen does the Salvation Army's hot-chocolate wagon witness to throughout the year? ... NONE? I've been in dozens of Salvation Army thrift stores and I've yet to find anything even remotely indicative of a Christian organization... NOTHING! Oh, but the Salvation Army owns some great property in the Hawaiian Islands. It's a shame! I recently read that there are 7,000 homeless people on Oahu. How many of those people have been witnessed to by the Salvation Army?
As with most PROFITABLE non-profit organizations, the Salvation Army has a lot to be desired of it. PROOF of what I am saying is that the Salvation Army is rarely mentioned in the news for contending for the faith or upsetting the wicked. Their statement of faith is buried within their organization. The New Testament church caused a ruckus by preaching the truth. It's not enough for the Salvation Army to post their doctrinal/positional stand on the back pages of some website, they need to start taking a visible stand against evil or America will face certain destruction. The Salvation Army will be held much more accountable by God for their lack of faith, because they are one of the most influential groups in the world. Nearly everyone loves the Salvation Army these days, because they have hidden their spiritual candle under a bushel. They ought to be ashamed.
If John the Baptist were to behave like members of the Salvation Army, he'd walk around Jerusalem in a nice uniform, playing a trumpet, doing nice things for people and never say a word of warning about God's wrath, of coming judgment or of the Lake of Fire. John was a sight to behold, clothed in camel's hair, eating wild locusts and preaching REPENTANCE FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS! Much of professed Christianity has become a business nowadays, a den-of-thieves who exploit Christianity to make merchandise of people.
The Truth Must Be Told!
America needs VOICES! The truth is lonely these days, having few friends. Love the Truth! The truth is that the New International Version and the English Standard Version of the Bible are of the Devil, ruthlessly attacking the deity of Jesus Christ (compare Philippians 2:6). The truth is that President George W. Bush is a pro-choice, pro-homosexual, occult member who is NOT a Christian. The truth is that Barack Obama is a Communist. The truth is that the 911 attacks in New York were orchestrated by the Bush Administration, and the concrete evidence is irrefutable. Mr. Bush, Ashcroft, Rumsfeld, and Cheney are mass murderers. Would you just sit there doing nothing if you were the President, and were just told your nation was under severe attack? Why did WT7 mysteriously collapse? Why were there mock war games going on at the exact SAME time as the actual attacks on the morning of 9-11-01? The American people have been lied to repeatedly and blatantly about so many things concerning 911 and the godless war against the Iraqi people. I will preach against the evils of 911 until the criminals behind 911 are brought to justice, or the Lord says it's time for me to go home. Psalm 94:16 challenges every believer to stand against evil and injustice!... "Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?"
Each of us has different talents and opportunities in life. Look at what God has given to you, and see what you can do for God. The main goal is to win lost sinners to Jesus Christ, by sharing the Biblical Gospel with them. Without the good news of Jesus Christ, nothing else matters anyway. Praise God for the gift of His dear Son, Jesus Christ.
Ye Must Be Born Again!
