VICTORIOUS FAITH

World evangelization may be accomplished only by preaching the gospel with
signs following – – – SIGNS! WONDERS! MIRACLES! The time truly is at hand
when BOLD METHODS will have to be used if we hope to get the job done quickly.
This is a task far beyond the abilities of any individual or group. It is a task that will
require the resources of the WHOLE CHURCH. Just before Jesus went back to
heaven He prayed, not only for His disciples, but also for those who were to follow

  • – – OTHER BELIEVERS. He prayed that God would keep believers from the evil
    in the world. GOD WILL KEEP US IF WE WILL ALLOW HIM TO DO SO! If
    God keeps us from evil, and we pay the price for God’s faith – – – WHAT IS
    KEEPING SO MANY FROM FOLLOWING HIM INTO THE WHITENED
    HARVEST FIELDS?
    Jesus, in praying for believers, told God He was not praying that God would
    take us OUT OF THE WORLD, but that we would be kept FROM THE EVIL. As
    God had sent Him INTO THE WORLD, HE REMINDED GOD THAT HE WASSENDING HIS DISCIPLES INTO THE WORLD. If we are followers of His
    today, THE SAME COMMISSION IS OURS! “Neither pray I for these alone, but
    for them also which shall believe on me through their word.” John 17:20.
    To get the world evangelized we are going to have to MOVE AS ONE MAN,
    OR ONE BODY. Jesus prayed that we might be ONE — “That they all may be one;
    as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us.” John 17:21a.
    This task will never be accomplished by criticizing the efforts put forth by other
    believers on the field. EVERY WORKER IN THE VINEYARD IS NEEDED.
    “But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them,
    because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.”
    “Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the
    labourers are few;”
    “Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers
    into his harvest.” Matthew 9:36-38.
    Instead of criticizing others who are laboring on the field, too, we should be
    obedient and pray that God will send forth MORE laborers into the whitened harvest
    field.
    “And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy
    name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not
    us.”
    “But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in
    my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.”
    “For he that is not against us is on our part.”
    “For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye
    belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.”
    “And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is
    better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast
    into the sea.” Mark 9:38-42.
    EVERY WORKER ON THE FIELD IS NEEDED! Some may accomplish
    more or less than others, BUT ALL OF THEM ARE NEEDED! God is not sending
