WINNING THE LOST WITH AUTHORITY

Matt 28:18 – 20 says, “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen”

Soul Winning is not just God’s heartbeat; He wants us to see Soul Winning as a lifestyle. I have always had this mindset of Christ, that Soul Winning is not what you learn or just initiate, it is what we are born for. Soul Winning is what we are Born Again for. We are called to call; we are saved to save; we are won to win. We are here to bring others into the Kingdom we have gained access. Doing little or nothing to give this same access to others, is totally outside His purpose for us.

The Kingdom of God is like Multilevel Marketing! I did not say it is Multilevel Marketing (MLM). In fact, I believe that Multilevel Marketing was copied from God’s structure for His Kingdom. In God’s Kingdom, we rise by winning others.

Dan 12:3 says, “And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever”

Those who win souls, may not be Bishops and the big names in your denomination, but when we get to Heaven, they will overtake everybody. Soul Winners will be the Champions in Heaven. Won’t you like to be called a Champion in Heaven? None of us shall miss this in Jesus name. Hallelujah!!!

The Scripture above reveals that those who win souls will shine, shine like the stars forever and ever. “Oh LORD, may I not miss out of your Stardom in Jesus name. Amen!!!”

In this Kingdom, not giving attention to soul winning will stagnate your growth and your access to God’s blessings. This is why I always say this, “You need more than prayer to wax strong in God’s Kingdom”. Prayer is not the only key, it is one amongst many; though very valuable.

If I ask randomly, “how old are you spiritually?” or “how many years have you been in Christ?” You will be surprised that many people deserve to have ‘spiritual grey hair’ by the number of years they have been in Christ. But it is also evident that many Christians are old in Christ but with stunt spiritual growth. Many are old physically but babies spiritually. What will you say about church leaders with all kinds of titles, but still wallowing under demonic afflictions. It is therefore true that, many Christians are not growing; and then some are, but not at the required rate.

I pray for you that, from today, you will grow and grow with speed in Jesus name.

Why is it difficult for many Christians to share the Gospel, even when the person with you is a close friend? How can someone be close to you, and gist with you everyday, yet you withhold the Gospel of Christ for that person? Don’t you realise you are the “DOOR” to that person’s salvation?

Does it not occur to you that, every time you meet at work or in the restaurant, it is an opportunity to share the Gospel and win her or win him to Christ? Have you not realised that, when someone who you have opportunity to win, dies in their sin, you are in danger of damnation and destruction?

Eze. 3:18-19 says, “When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul”

Our responsibility is preaching and teaching, the Holy Ghost is the one who actually wins people through us. Get this straight!

Please stop joking with sharing the Gospel, PLEASE!

I discovered that one of the reasons why many Christians find it difficult to share the Gospel with friends, colleagues and associates is because of an inferiority complex. You think that;

  • Abeg, let me face the work we came here to do.
  • How will I start to say that kind of thing?
  • How will they be looking at me now?
  • Your friend has his or her life to live, abeg.
  •  Let me not disturb anyone in this office; etc.

Stop looking down on yourself, you are not just there

Stop degrading yourself, you are God’s instrument

Stop refusing the voice of the Holy Spirit, you are good enough for His use.

Yes, you are His rescue agent, to save someone in that company.

Amazing things happen when you open up to be God’s instrument beyond the four walls of your church. God wants you to win souls and help others grow everywhere; and everywhere you meet people, including your office, the market, etc; is just another opportunity

Below is a short testimony of one of my Boss, I met while I was working in somewhere in Lagos some years back.

“I met Bro. Deji when he came visiting with a colleague of mine when I had my baby (not sure if it’s my 1st or 2nd). Knowing him has been a wonderful experience. He became my spiritual guide, prayer partner. He is easy to talk to and there whenever I need advice. Even after he left the Guardian I still call him on issues. He is ‘my pastor friend’ that’s what I call him. I’m glad God brought him my way”

You feel inferior and incapable to preach to someone else because you do not realise the One who is sending you. You can win and grow your Boss. You feel inferior and incapable because you do not realise that the One sending you has all the authority in heaven and on earth. The One sending you to preach is the Master of the Universe.

If the president of Nigeria tells you to go meet him at the Governor’s office tomorrow; will you ever think that there is a possibility you won’t be allowed in? No! Why? Because, we are talking about the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, here!

In the case of Christ, we are talking about the Commander General of the Universal forces. When He pronounces a marching order, all the witches and wizards in your village keep still.  We are talking about the Terrible God, Ps 66:3 declares, that “…he does terrible things and His enemies submit to Him by the greatness of His Power” He has all the authority in Heaven and on the earth. And He is sending you…yes You.

He said, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you…”

The LORD is calling us to see everyone in our community, on our streets, in our offices and our spheres of influence; all who are not saved, as opportunities He is giving us to shine as stars in His Kingdom, Dan 12:3. He has all Power and Authority, and He is sending us with that same authority… Hallelujah!!!

Begin to see yourself as a Kingdom delegate. Say to yourself;

  • I am the King’s delegate;
  • I am on assignment for the King;
  • I have His backing to rescue men and women, old and young;
  • I have been given the authority of Christ;
  • With His authority, I shall do valiantly;
  • I shall win, not just a few, but many into His Kingdom.

Hallelujah!!! Come on, give Jesus praise!

I love NLT Version of Eph. 1:22; it says, “God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church

Wow!!! Christ has all authority; Yes!!! But all the authority He received is for our benefit. So stop feeling inferior. Stop looking down on yourself

You may be persecuted; you might have gone through tough times, but those are temporary. They do not change the fact that Christ has all authority, and that we are the beneficiaries of all these. Hallelujah!!!

I believe you are blessed already. Amen!!!

Say to yourself;

  • I am the King’s delegate;
  • I am on assignment for the King;
  • I have His backing to rescue men and women, old and young;
  • I have been given the authority of Christ;
  • With His authority, I shall do valiantly;
  • I shall win, not just a few, but many into His Kingdom.

Now, you need to pray for yourself!!!

Ask God for mercy for every time you neglected souls He sent your way to rescue. Ask God for His mercies. Pray also for Grace to begin to win souls from now. Pray for yourself that, “Never again will any lost soul pass me without hearing the Gospel of Jesus”. Pray finally, that from today, your life will begin to bear fruits that will remain in God’s Kingdom.

I prophesy that, no matter how many years you have been born again, from today, you will begin to experience the Joy of Salvation. From now, you will begin to radiate the essence of Christianity. From today, your life will bring many to God, and bring joy to Heaven. Go and begin to bear fruits, and more fruits and much fruits in the Name of Jesus. Amen!!! God bless you. Arise!
