A supernatural book.

Do we delight in the Word of God? Do we rejoice in God’s Word as one who finds great treasure? (See Psa. 119:162.) The key is to consume the Word of God, to meditate upon the Word, to digest it and let it become part of us. The Bible is a supernatural book, and can give us supernatural energy to do the will of God (see also Neh. 8:1–12). Too many fail to read the Bible every day. They find time to feed their stomach each day, but refuse to make time to read God’s Word. Don’t let your belly take precedence over reading the Bible. Forget your food rather than forget the Word of God. (See Exod. 34:28.)

Jeremiah 6:10To whom shall I speak and give warning,

That they may hear?

Indeed their ear is uncircumcised,

And they cannot give heed.

Behold, the word of the Lord is a reproach to them;

They have no delight in it.

Preach the fear of God.

The reason for sorcery, adultery, false witness, and other transgressions of God’s Law is a lack of the fear of God. Never hesitate to preach the fear of God. It causes sinners to depart from sin (see Prov. 16:6). Preach the thunderings and lightnings of Mount Sinai and preach future punishment!

The preaching of the Law without retribution will not be effective in winning souls for Christ. It has been well said that God’s Law without consequence is nothing but good advice. The world will agree with “You shall not kill.” That makes sense. They will smile at “You shall not commit adultery.” They know it destroys families. They will give assent to “You shall not bear false witness.” They know that it harms friendships. The Ten Commandments certainly are good advice. However, when you preach the Law with the message that God “will judge the world in righteousness” (as Paul preached in Athens; see Acts 17:22–31), your listeners may be provoked to say, “We will hear you again on this matter” (Acts 17:32). And sinners will be soundly saved.

Malachi 3:5And I will come near you for judgment;

I will be a swift witness

Against sorcerers,

Against adulterers,

Against perjurers,

Against those who exploit wage earners and widows and orphans,

And against those who turn away an alien—

Because they do not fear Me,”

Says the Lord of hosts.

Power to witness.

Have you received the Holy Spirit (been born again)? If so, then you have been given power to witness and been sent into all the world to share the gospel.

“If a person is filled with the Holy Spirit, his witness will not be optional or mandatory—it will be inevitable.” Richard Halverson

Acts 1:8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

Not for a few.

“Evangelism is not a professional job for a few trained men, but is instead the unrelenting responsibility of every person who belongs to the company of Jesus.” –Elton Trueblood

Preaching 10x…

“I believe I never was more acceptable to my Master than when I was standing to teach those hearers in the open fields… I now preach to ten times more people than I would if I had been confined to the churches.” George Whitefield

Together in the net.

Notice the good fish and the bad fish, in Matthew 13:47-51, were in the net together. The world is not caught in the dragnet of the kingdom of heaven; they remain in the world.

The “fish” that are caught are those who respond to the gospel—the evangelistic “catch.” They remain together until the Day of Judgment.

Matthew 13:47“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and gathered some of every kind,

48 “which, when it was full, they drew to shore; and they sat down and gathered the good into vessels, but threw the bad away.

49 “So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just,

50 “and cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”

“Atheists do not claim that nothing created everything.”

Many atheists refuse to admit they believe the entire universe came into being from nothing, because it is a scientific impossibility and they recognize how silly it sounds. If everything didn’t come from nothing, their alternative is to say that creation (nature) created itself. However, a thing cannot make itself. To do so would mean that it had to pre-exist before it existed, and therefore it didn’t create itself because it was already in existence. (For where the universe came from, see Isa. 34:4  and Isa. 45:18 comments.) Here is a list of some who have admitted to believing that nothing created everything:

  1. “It is now becoming clear that everything can—and probably did—come from nothing.” —Robert A. J. Matthews, physicist, Ashton University, England
  2. “Space and time both started at the Big Bang and therefore there was nothing before it.” —Cornell University’s “Ask an Astronomer”
  3. “Some physicists believe our universe was created by colliding with another, but Kaku [a theoretical physicist at City University of New York] says it also may have sprung from nothing…” —Scienceline.org
  4. “Even if we don’t have a precise idea of exactly what took place at the beginning, we can at least see that the origin of the universe from nothing need not be unlawful or unnatural or unscientific.” —Paul Davies, physicist, Arizona State University
  5. “Assuming the universe came from nothing, it is empty to begin with…Only by the constant action of an agent outside the universe, such as God, could a state of nothingness be maintained. The fact that we have something is just what we would expect if there is no God.” —Victor J. Stenger, Prof. Physics, University of Hawaii; author of God: The Failed Hypothesis
  6. “Few people are aware of the fact that many modern physicists claim that things—perhaps even the entire universe—can indeed arise from nothing via natural processes.” —Mark I. Vuletic, Creation Ex Nihilo—Without God
  7. “To understand these facts we have to turn to science. Where did they all come from, and how did they get so darned outrageous? Well, it all started with nothing.” —”Fifty Outrageous Animal Facts,” Animal Planet
  8. 8. “To the average person it might seem obvious that nothing can happen in nothing. But to a quantum physicist, nothing is, in fact, something.” —Discover Magazine“Physics & Math/Cosmology”
  9. “It is rather fantastic to realize that the laws of physics can describe how everything was created in a random quantum fluctuation out of nothing, and how over the course of 15 billion years, matter could organize in such complex ways that we have human beings sitting here, talking, doing things intentionally.” —Alan Harvey Guth, theoretical physicist and cosmologist, Discover Magazine
  10. “The fact that life evolved out of nearly nothing, some 10 billion years after the universe evolved out of literally nothing is a fact so staggering that I would be mad to attempt words to do it justice.” —Richard Dawkins, The Ancestor’s Tale

Psalm 121:2 My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.
