The Ultimate Fool!

THE ULTIMATE FOOL! (a conversation I just had with someone) The God who created you and the God that you will one day stand before, He is GOOD, JUST & TRUE. The Bible calls it a foolish thing to look at the creation of the world and to declare that there is no God. The evidence stares us in the face & yet so many of us refuse to acknowledge Him or His wonderful works. The Bible also says that the reason we refuse to acknowledge Him, is that we love our sin. I don’t care to win a debate about God, because it’s not up for debate, not for you and not for me. We have all broken His commands. We know in our hearts that lying is wrong, stealing, adultery, using God’s name in vain. Yet we have all done it knowing it was wrong. Jesus said that hating […]

Jesus Says Preach the Gospel, We Say, Send Someone Else

Share the Gospel

Opening Thoughts: What a joy it is to be in Christ! Considering what we all actually deserve (hell) and yet God through His infinite mercy and grace rescued us, adopted us and placed His Spirit in us. We should be the most joyful people on the planet. We should be the most content people in this material world and the most joyfully motivated in declaring His fame.  Colossians 1:27 “To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” I love that passage for a couple reasons, it talks about how we are to make known to the Gentiles (the world) the riches “this glorious mystery”. What glorious mystery? That the God of the universe, who is entirely Holy, would choose to reconcile a criminal like me, not just saving me from hell but saving me from sin itself. He does […]

The Secret to the Great Commission

Overcoming Fear of the Great Commission There are as many methods as there are fears for Christians when they read and consider the Great Commission in Matthew 28:16-20. Many of us would agree that it is not easy to share our faith with friends, family, and especially….gasp….strangers. We fear rejection, we fear stumbling over our words, etc.  But maybe something is there in the words Jesus spoke to his eleven faithfuls that we’ve missed, and maybe it’s the secret to vanquishing our fears of evangelism. Let’s read the Commission together, Jesus and his disciples have just met on the mountain in Galilee where they have worshiped Him for the first time as their resurrected Lord.       And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of […]

How To Preach it || Gospel Open Air Preaching

The Value of Street Preaching: A.W. Tozer … Hailing from a tiny farming community in western La Jose, Pennsylvania, his conversion was as a teenager in Akron, Ohio. While on his way home from work at a tire company, he overheard a street preacher say: “If you don’t know how to be saved… just call on God.” Upon returning home, he climbed into the attic and heeded the preacher’s advice. It’s amazing that He Overheard a street preacher…. you have no idea how many people hear you when you are preaching and will be the fruit of your voice. My Son Max Understands His Call: For those of you who don’t know us, Danae and I make a practice of handing out Gospel tracts wherever we go. Max has watched us evangelize ever since he was 3 years old and now he has felt the burden for souls that we have modelled for […]

Moment of Truth – A Rhyme by Shane Martin

MOMENT OF TRUTH! I LIKE people who SPEAK the TRUTH, who are FEARLESS of what is said about them, I LIKE people who PREACH the GOSPEL including God’s wrath and judgement but are careful they don’t condemn men. I LIKE people who hold to TRUTH over Popularity, I LIKE people who aren’t afraid to WALK ALONE in the world even when it means they will forfeit prosperity. I LIKE people who TEACH the scriptures in CONTEXT rather than making up their own interpretation, I LIKE people who aren’t AFRAID to say ABORTION is MURDER instead of trying to protect their denomination. I LIKE people who risk it all and Consider that SUFFERING is part of the CALL. I LIKE people who LOVE & PRAY for their HATERS instead of retaliating like some young punk skaters. I LIKE people who are SO HEAVENLY MINDED that the WORLD does not deserve them. I LIKE […]

The Story of Jonah and Jesus

Jesus Uses the Story of Jonah – Luke 11:29-32 Opening Thoughts:I just successfully wasted about 6 hours over the last two nights on writing this post only to erase it both times and start over again. I’m starting to think that it’s important, either that or God is just working on my patience and obedience. The Long Hair: I remember when I was a kid, likely about 12 years old, I was hanging out with some school mates and I noticed that one of the girls had a very long hair on her forehead. I told her about it and reached to pull it out and to my horror it was attached! She was horrified as well and I think she ran to the bathroom to pull it out. My first thought was, “A hair like that does not grow over night, how on earth did it get that long […]

Bench Warmers for JESUS!

Jesus Casts out the MUTE Demon – Luke 11:14-23 Opening Thoughts: For those who are tracking along through my study in Luke, welcome back! For those of you who are jumping in for the first time, welcome aboard. My wife Danae and I are so grateful to be used of God by way of studying the Word and blogging it out. Our hope is that in some way we can be a tool to help prepare the way for the kingdom of God in the hearts of those God has called. We pray that as you read you too will be challenged to open your Bible and carefully digest all that is written,  and ultimately be challenged, convicted, and changed for the Glory of God! Today’s text is taken from Luke 11:14-23 In this text you will find that Jesus performs a miracle that is very significant in pointing to […]

Operation 180 Movie – 180movie.com School Distribution

180Movie.com Turning Pro-Choice People in Pro-Life Believers. UPDATE October 26, 2011: ************************ On behalf of Ray Comfort and the rest of the Living Waters team, thank you! Yesterday’s “Project: 180” effort went exceptionally well.  While some of our teams did face considerable opposition from school administrators, security, and police (with four members of one team being cited for trespassing), by and large the opposition was light. Teams spent anywhere from 30 minutes to 11 hours on their respective campuses.  Talk about a “don’t quit!” spirit and perseverance!  I could be more proud and honored to serve alongside each of you.  Thank you! The testimonies we are receiving from you, as well as emails we are receiving from college students around the country, indicates that your efforts are making and will continue to make an impact not only on the various campuses, but in the lives of students as well.

180Movie.com Appreciates Your Help

Picture of my baby, “Kate Audrey Martin” born Yesterday. Opening Thoughts: As I reflect over the events of the past week and a half since the launch of 180 Movie, I cannot help but see the powerful hand of God at work through this project. My job with this amazing pro-life movie is to oversee and manage the social media reach. This has been both tasking and rewarding, a job I could never have accomplished without all of your help and efforts. In the past 10 days the 180 YouTube video has been shared 130,000 times on Facebook alone. I have been blown away by the random people who have come up to me after seeing that I had the 180 Facebook page open, and say, “Someone shared that movie with me on Facebook and I loved it, and have now shared it with all my friends!”  Praise the Lord […]

Worship Without Justice is NOISE! 180Movie.com – 180 Movie

Opening Thoughts: Well it’s Sunday and there will many people who believe on the name of the Lord in church buildings today. They will worship, praise and likely talk a bit after church, then go out for lunch or home for a feast. This is a quick challenge to all people who profess to follow Christ to not only worship in the building but also carry your worship to Facebook, Twitter, Blogs and the streets… 180 Movie is a timely gift from God that is throwing a HUGE stick in the spokes of the pro-choice movement. If we say we follow Jesus it is not only our mandate to share the GOSPEL, but also to stop the shedding of innocent blood.  After seeing that almost 100,000 people have shared the 180 YouTube movie on Facebook in the past 5 days, resulting in over 400,000 YouTube views and thousands of lives […]
