LEADING A LOST PERSON TO A SAVING KNOWLEDGE OF JESUS CHRIST AND ENROLLING ONE PERSON IN BCU
HOW I LEAD ONE LOST PERSON TO SAVING KNOWLEDGE OF JESUS CHRIST
My Beloved friend, I want to speak to you about a most important subject and I will like to ask for your time. Let us pray. You must have realized by reports through the news media that thousands of people are dying every day. However what the news media does not tell you is that majority of the souls are perishing because they decided to live a life without Jesus - a life without hope on their way to begin eternity in hell and finally in the lake that burneth with fire and brimstone (Rev 21:8). For these perished souls I can do nothing, "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement" (Hebrews 9:27). But for you my dear friend that is alive I have been given a responsibility and obligation to see that I do all that is necessary so that you will not perish, "For to him that is joined to the living there is hope" Always remember that, "God is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance"(2 Peter 3:9). The only way to repentance unto salvation is through Jesus Christ. You should not be preoccupied with pleasure, party, picnic, politics, and pursuit of power and neglect the Giver of Life - Jesus Christ? Do you know the reason why with all your money, properties, and connections you are still unfulfilled? It is because you are not connected
"But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up." (2 Peter 3:10)
When the atomic bomb burst over Hiroshima in 1945, the thoughts of Bible-believing Christians everywhere turned almost immediately to this verse. There was also widespread concern that man's newly discovered ability might get out of control and cause all "the elements to melt with fervent heat"! Seemingly, Peter had prophetically anticipated, 1,900 years in advance, the modern discovery of nuclear fission.
In this verse, the word "elements" means fundamental parts and could appropriately be applied to the basic elements of which matter is composed. The word for "melt" is usually translated "unloose," and this also is appropriate to describe atomic disintegration.
There is still widespread fear of a nuclear holocaust. The words of our text refer, however, not to something man will do, but to God's coming great purging of the very dust of the earth and all the age-long effects of sin and the Curse. At the very end of this present age, when the mighty Creator appears on His great white judgment throne, the ineffable glory of His countenance will cause the earth and its atmospheric heaven to flee away, "and there was found no place for them" (Revelation 20:11).
"Nevertheless, we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness" (2 Peter 3:13). God will make the earth new again, and the great Curse, which has permeated the "dust of the earth" (the "elements") ever since Adam (Genesis 3:17-20), will be "no more" (Revelation 22:3). This great hope is incentive enough to live now in the light of eternity. HMM
