SOUL WARNING

I preached this Sunday night, February, 12, 2020 at Greenbush Baptist Church

 

I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TONIGHT ON the SECOND most important doctrine found in the Bible
I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TONIGHT ON
SOUL WARNING

 

SOUL WINNING HAS THE CONNOTATION
THAT YOU MUST GET THE JOB DONE

THAT’S NOT WHAT I AM PREACHING ABOUT TONIGHT

Jesus said
Mat 4:19
  Follow me, and
I WILL MAKE YOU FISHERS OF MEN.

 

MY DESIRE IN PREACHING THIS MESSAGE IS THAT GOD WILL
GIVE EACH OF US A BURDEN FOR
SOUL WARNING

AND BLESS EACH OF US WITH A TRUMPET MOUTH

PRAY
—————————————-

THE ABSOLUTE MOST IMPORTANT DOCTRINE
IN THE BIBLE

Is that God HAS PRESERVED HIS WORD
PSALM 12:6-8

and the ASSURANCE that we have it
IN THE KING JAMES BIBLE
The ONLY WAY we know anything about
HEAVEN – HELL – JESUS – GOSPEL – PROPHECY,  and every other doctrine
is by THE KING JAMES BIBLE
if it is in here ITS TRUE

If it isn’t then its SUBJECTIVE
that is it may be true and it may not be true.

 

MY DEFINITION OF SOUL WARNING IS
having a BURDEN for the lost
Talking to people about JESUS
PREACHING JESUS
I CALL SOUL WARNING WHAT THE BIBLE CALLS IT – PREACHING

Isa 58:1  Cry aloud, spare not, LIFT UP THY VOICE LIKE A TRUMPET, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.

1Co 1:18  For the PREACHING of the cross is to them that perish FOOLISHNESS; but unto us which are saved it is the POWER of God.

Rom 1:16  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the POWER of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

POWER – The Greek word for power is DUNAMIS – And DUNAMIS is our word for DYNAMITE

2Ti 1:7  For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of POWER, and of love, and of a sound mind.

 

WE HAVE GOD’S DYNAMITE TO BLOW UP THE DEVILS STRONG HOLDS
AND SET PRISONERS FREE

 

YOU AND ME WE
HAVE THE POWER
TO FREE CAPTIVE SOULS
WE have the power TO HURT SATAN

TO RIGHT WRONGS

TO DO SOMETHING THAT WILL IMPACT
our own PERSONAL WORLD

YET so many timesI DO NOTHING

 

LET ME ASK YOU SOMETHING – [no hands]
WHAT IS THE WORST SIN A
JOHN 3:3 CHRISTIAN CAN COMMIT????
———————————–

THE WORST SIN A JOHN 3:3 CHRISTIAN CAN COMMIT IS TO DO NOTHING
LETTING PEOPLE GO INTO ETERNITY
WITHOUT ANY WARNING

NOT PASSING OUT GOSPEL TRACTS
NOT WARNING OTHERS ABOUT
SIN – RIGHTEOUSNESS AND THE JUDGEMENT TO COME

Because of MY SPIRITUAL COWARDICE or APATHY or NEGLECT
FOR THAT PERSON
JESUS DIED FOR NOTHING
Jesus went to the cross for them
so they could receive forgiveness
and live an abundant life
but
BECAUSE OF ME
NOT SAYING ANYTHING
THEY NEVER HAD A CHANCE

 

JESUS SAID TO WARN
SPECIFICALLY JESUS SAID
TO BE A WATCHMAN

TURN TO Eze 3:16-20
And it came to pass at the end of seven days, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, [JESUS SAID]

Eze 3:17  Son of man, I HAVE MADE THEE A WATCHMAN unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and
GIVE THEM WARNING FROM ME. 

 

Eze 3:18  When I say unto the wicked,
THOU SHALT SURELY DIE;

[we R all going to SURELY DIE – the warning isn’t physical death ITS SPIRITUAL DEATH]
[ROMANS 6:23 + Rev 20:11-15]

Rev 20:14  And DEATH and hell were cast into THE LAKE OF FIRE. This is the SECOND DEATH.

Eze 3:18  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.

 

[All those who you refuse TO WARN–their AGONY THROUGHOUT ETERNITY
IS ON YOU]

 

Eze 3:19  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.

Act 20:31  Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to WARN every one night and day with tears

 

IF YOU WARN OR GIVE SOMEONE A TRACT
THEN HIS END – THAT IS ON HIM

 

Eze 3:20  When a RIGHTEOUS MAN

[HERE in Eze 3:20 – A RIGHTEOUS MAN IS SOMEONE WHO IS RIGHTEOUS IN HIS OWN HEAD
– SOMEONE WHO SEEMS TO BE A GOOD PERSON
SO WE THINK THAT WE DON’T NEED TO WARN THEM ABOUT SIN RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JUDGEMENT TO COME]

 

Eze 3:20  When a RIGHTEOUS MAN

doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: BECAUSE THOU HAST NOT GIVEN HIM WARNING, HE SHALL DIE IN HIS SIN, AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS WHICH HE HATH DONE SHALL NOT BE REMEMBERED; BUT
HIS BLOOD WILL I REQUIRE AT THINE HAND.
 

 

 

THERE IS NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT THEN SOUL WARNING
THAT IS WARNING OTHERS ABOUT SIN, RIGHTEOUSNESS
AND JUDGMENT TO COME

MANY of the people I see –
that I talk with –
IF GOD
REACHED OUT AND
TOOK THEIR HEART  IN HIS HAND
AND SQUEEZED IT
THEY WOULD  DIE

AND BE WITH THE RICH MAN IN LUKE 16

let’s check IT out

READ – Luke 16: 19-26

In verse 27-31
That rich man got a BURDEN

His BURDEN WAS GREATER THEN HIS LONELINESS

that old saying

MISERY LOVES COMPANY
not in Hell it doesn’t

IF YOU GO TO HELL
you will be just as this rich man
YOU WILL HAVE A BURDEN
for your loved ones and your friends
BUT IT WILL BE TOO LATE

 

The SALVATION ARMY was founded by WILLIAM BOOTH, over in England back in the late 1800’s

William Booth WAS a
KING JAMES BIBLE PREACHER
and he had A BURDEN FOR SOULS

He preached to
THIEVES, PROSTITUTES, GAMBLERS, AND DRUNKARDS.  And many got saved

PERHAPS YOU ARE THINKING,
Well Larry, how do you know those thieves, gamblers, addicts, and prostitutes
REALLY GOT SAVED???
because those converts  also began
PREACHING AND SINGING IN THE STREETS
They became living testimonies
to the power of God.

PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT CHANGED BY THE GOSPEL ARE NOT SAVED BY THE GOSPEL

A preacher ONCE SAID TO WILLIAM BOOTH
if I could I would send my men to Bible College for 4 years
Booth answered him
If I could I’d send my men to HELL for 5 minutes

BOOTH STRUCTURED HIS MINISTRY
LIKE AN ARMY BOOT CAMP

He considered Himself and all his converts as soldiers – SOLDIERS FOR CHRIST

2Ti 2:3-4
Thou therefore endure hardness, as a GOOD SOLDIER OF JESUS CHRIST.

2Ti 2:4  No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.  

But today we have an ANEMIC – WIMPY
– WORLDLY CHRISTIANITY

BUT WHO AM I TO JUDGE

turn to Rev 3:14-22

 

WE NEED A BURDEN FOR LOST SOULS

STORY ABOUT THE KID, HIS DAD, AND THE CAR CRASH
An evangelist was driving on a two lane dirt mountainous road with his son when they witnessed a fiery car crash
They heard the screams as the occupants burned to death – horrified they smelled their burning flesh
The evangelist worried about his son – would he carry this real traumatic psychological horror all his life?
Latter that night his son woke him up and asked,
Dad, what we saw – is that what hell is like? His dad answered him,
Yes son, the Bible says hell is exactly like that
His son then asked
and I ask you
How can we sleep knowing so many people are going to hell?

WITHOUT A BURDEN YOU WILL QUIT ON GOD

PAUL HAD A BURDEN
1Co 9:16
  For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea,
WOE IS UNTO ME,
IF I PREACH NOT THE GOSPEL
!

THIS IS THE WAY IT WORKS

YOU PREACH THE GOSPEL
OR
YOU JUST SAY, HAY JESUS DIED FOR YOU

JESUS SAID

John 12:32  And I, IF I BE LIFTED UP from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

THAT VERSE IS TELLING US TO ALWAYS
MAKE A BEE LINE TO THE CROSS

ALL A CHRISTIAN CAN DO IS to WARN THE LOST
AND HAND OUT GOSPEL TRACTS

John 6:44  NO MAN CAN COME TO ME,
EXCEPT THE FATHER WHICH HATH SENT ME DRAW HIM:
AND I WILL RAISE HIM UP AT THE LAST DAY.

JOHN 6:44 TELLS US THAT

YOU DON’T HAVE ANY POWER TO CONVINCE OR CONVICT ANYONE OF THEIR NEED FOR
REPENTANCE AND FORGIVENESS

 

John 6:44 tells us that
OUR POWER COMES FROM GOD

GOD CONVICTS SINNERS heart
AND GOD USES WHAT YOU SAY
TO CONVICT A PERSON TO
BELIEVE – REPENT and RECEIVE  

THE WORST SIN A CHRISTIAN CAN COMMIT
IS TO BE A SPIRITUAL
NINCOMPOOP
A LAZY COWARDLY CHRISTIAN
who never tells anyone about the hope he/she has in their heart

Be a WATCHMAN
THOSE WHO YOU CAN TALK WITH
WARN THEM
THOSE WHO YOU CANT WARN
GIVE THEM A GOSPEL TRACT

SOULS – SOULS JESUS DIED FOR
ARE NOT GETTING SAVED
DON’T LET JESUS DIE FOR NOTHING

 

BE GOD’S WATCHMAN

GET A BURDEN

PREACH THE GOSPEL

Mat 4:19
FOLLOW ME, AND I WILL MAKE YOU FISHERS OF MEN.
