Spreading the Word Without Saying a Word Ministry
By: Chico and Debbie Jimenez
HARDEN NOT YOUR HEARTS, WHEN YOU HEAR HIS VOICE,
TODAY IS YOUR TODAY!!!
JESUS IS CALLING YOU, WILL YOU LISTEN??? Hebrews 3:15 While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation. Hebrews 4:7 Again, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.Romans 10:13For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. 14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? 15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! 16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.Mark 13:13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
JESUS said in Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. And then in Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.
JESUS MADE OUR INSTRUCTIONS VERY CLEAR, He said, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. John 10:27My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 1 John 4:6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
Then Paul tells us there is ONLY ONE TRUE GOSPEL in 1 Corinthians 1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness. Paul then tells us what happens to ANY ONE PREACHES ANOTHER GOSPEL inGalatians 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. PAUL REITERATES THIS FACT in Galatians 1:9As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
Not everyone is going to RECEIVE “The GOSPEL” the “GOOD NEWS” and here is why:
The Word of GOD clearly says in Matthew 22:14 For many are called, but few arechosen.
What does that mean??? Let’s find out by learning and understanding the meanings of the words called, invite and chosen!!!
According to the Strong’s Concordance the word CALLED means: CALLED means: 1) called, invited (to a banquet) invited (by God in the proclamation of the Gospel) to obtain eternal salvation in the kingdom through Christ. KNOWING that the word “called” in Matthew 22:14 means “INVITED” by GOD to ETERNAL SALVATION.
Now we need to see what the word “invite” means: INVITE means: 1) to request the presence or participation of in a kindly, courteous, or complimentary way, especially to request to come or go to some place, gathering, entertainment, etc., or to do something: to invite friends to dinner. 2) to request politely or formally:
According to the Strong’s Concordance the word CHOSEN means: CHOSEN means: 1) picked out, chosen a) chosen by God,1) to obtain salvation through Christ a) Christians are called “chosen or elect” of God.
With the understanding that the word “called” means invited and the word “chosen” means “chosen by GOD” let’s rightly divide the WORD of GOD!!!
The “Word of GOD” is very CLEAR in Mark 16:15, We are instructed, by JESUS himself to go preach the GOSPEL to every creature. When we share the GOSPEL, we invite people to partake of the TRUTH (JESUS); we invite them to become part of the Body of TRUE BELIEVERS and RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST as Lord and SAVIOR. When an invitation is given, not ALL WILL ACCEPT. Remember in Matthew 22:14 that MANY ARE CALLED (INVITED), but few are CHOSEN (CHOSEN by GOD)!!! The ONLY people who WILL TRULY ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST as LORD and SAVIOR are the ONES that ARE CHOSEN by GOD!!!
The “Word of GOD” makes it CLEAR that THOSE WHO’S NAMES ARE NOT WRITTEN in the LAMB’S BOOK of LIFE BEFORE THE FOUNDATION of the WORLD, WILL WORSHIP the devil. Revelation 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
JESUS MAKES IT VERY CLEAR to US in Matthew 10:14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. And then in Mark 6:11 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. (John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.)
PAUL MAKES IT CLEAR in 2 Corinthians 6:14Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? AGAIN, John tells us in 2 John 1:10If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 2 John 1:11For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
Again in Mark 13:13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
