First Thursday Prayer – August 2016

Since May 2010 we have been meeting on the First Thursday of each month to pray for our
Nation, Leaders and Revival. Be sure to check out the new Pray Learn Go page on Facebook13662341_1401050169911665_3613215739980228991_o

We will be hosting our First Thursday prayer meetings at several locations (Dallas and Carrollton) which can be found on Meetup. If you’d like to participate at another location, please contact us and we would be glad to add your location to the Meetup group.

Each month we provide a suggested verse to guide your prayer time. This month we recommend Psalm 111 especially verse 10:

Praise the Lord!
I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart,
    in the company of the upright, in the congregation.
Great are the works of the Lord,
    studied by all who delight in them.
Full of splendor and majesty is his work,
    and his righteousness endures forever.
He has caused his wondrous works to be remembered;
    the Lord is gracious and merciful.
He provides food for those who fear him;
    he remembers his covenant forever.
He has shown his people the power of his works,
    in giving them the inheritance of the nations.
The works of his hands are faithful and just;
    all his precepts are trustworthy;
they are established forever and ever,
    to be performed with faithfulness and uprightness.
He sent redemption to his people;
    he has commanded his covenant forever.
    Holy and awesome is his name!
10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
    all those who practice it have a good understanding.
    His praise endures forever!

Let’s use this Thursday as a call to repentance for our nation. It’s a crucial time for our nation. Prayers are needed for the election. Please vote and please meditate on verse 10 and be guided by the Lord when you do! There are four more First Thursday Prayer meetings before the election on November 8th. Those dates are:

  • August 4th
  • September 1st
  • October 6th
  • November 3rd

See you Thursday!

BezeugenGO!

You’ve heard of PokemonGO! Maybe you are even one of the millions of people searching f POKEMON 3.5X2for virtual Pokemon using your smartphone. We’ve found the game to be a great ice breaker to the Gospel by finding people playing the game in parks, malls and every where we go. One Million Tracts even has a Pokeball tract that you can give to these game players!

Jesus gave two commands to Go!

“Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” Mark 16:15

“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20

So what are you waiting for? Let’s go!

Here is how BezeugenGO works.

  1. Download an app to track your walking. I like MapMyWalk. But there are plenty of 13646799_10210168769201695_1270176601_osimilar apps that do the same thing.
  2. Start the app
  3. Click start workout to track you walk
  4. Go door to door and distribute door hangers!
  5. Click stop workout. The app will save the map of where you walked and even report stats like distance, etc.

If you need door hangers you can order any of our designs at One Million Tracts. There is even a space that can be customized with your church, ministry or personal contact information. To get started, we would be pleased to send you a flat rate envelope of door hangers (50 or so) for a donation of any amount to Bezeugen Ministries.

So what would happen if you were to start from your house, go out and walk 30-45 minutes per week and simply put out door hangers, pray for your neighbors and the ones that you come in contact with you tell them what you are doing. What would happen if you did that every day? You’d get some exercise for sure. Most all of us need that. You’d probably reach 100-500 houses a week with the Gospel. Everyone needs that!

So here is the challenge. At least once in the month of August, go out into your community, walk for at least 30 minutes and distribute door hangers or tracts to people’s doors. Then on Spetember 17th, join the 100K in 1 Day event where people from around the country will be working together in their communities to share the Gospel with 100,000 people in one day! Then keep going at least once a month.

If you are up to the challenge email Carl and let him know you are in! We will send you door hangers to get you started, add you to our door to door map and even add you to our meetup group events if you’ll let us know when you are going!

First Thursday Prayer – July 2016

Since May 2010 we have been meeting on the First Thursday of each month to pray for our Blessed is the Nation Front iconNation, Leaders and Revival.

We will be hosting our First Thursday prayer meetings at several locations (Dallas and Carrollton) which can be found on Meetup. If you’d like to participate at another location, please contact us and we would be glad to add your location to the Meetup group.

Each month we provide a suggested verse to guide your prayer time. This month we recommend using Psalm 33:12:

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
    the people whom he has chosen as his heritage!

 

This verse appears on the front of a new tract released to the Bezeugen Tract Club this month. The back reads as follows:

The nation is a collection of people. God is calling each one to turn to Him. Then as a whole to serve Him. Do you need to turn to God? Ever told a lie? Stolen anything? Hated anyone? Innocent or guilty? God cannot be in the presence of sin. “For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness, Nor shall evil dwell with You” (Psalm 5:4). Heaven or Hell? God does not want you to go to Hell (1 Timothy 2:4). The Good News is that 2,000 years ago, God sent his Son Jesus to earth. Jesus being fully man and fully God fulfilled the Law. He willingly died on the cross to pay for your sin, then rose from the dead defeating sin and death. Repent and believe the Gospel. God will forgive all your sin and grant you eternal life (Mark 1:15, John 3:36). Read the Bible everyday starting with John, Acts, Romans and James.

Let’s use this Thursday as a call to repentance for our nation, especially for the 300+ million individuals who make up its population! See you Thursday!

If you want to walk on the water

November 11, 2015 I spoke at Rockwall Bible Church and presented this message. I hope you will be encouraged to get out of your comfort zone and share the Gospel.

First Thursday Prayer – June 2016

Since May 2010 we have been meeting on the First Thursday of each month to pray for our Nation, Leaders and Revival.

We will be hosting our First Thursday prayer meetings at several locations (Dallas and Carrollton) which can be found on Meetup. If you’d like to participate at another location, please contact us and we would be glad to add your location to the Meetup group.

Each month we provide a suggested verse to guide your prayer time. This month we recommend using Mark 4: 39:

And he awoke, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

This verse is an excellent reminded that Jesus is God and He is in control. During this time in our country some put their trust in men or the political system. But let’s remember what the Psalmist wrote in Psalm 20:7

Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
    but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.

See you Thursday. Let’s pray for our nation. Pray that people will repent and return to God!

First Thursday logistics – May 2016 – National Day of Prayer

Thursday, May 5th is The National Day of Prayer. We encourage you to find an event near you or National Day of Prayer Task Force register an event!

Checking the news is a constant reminder that our Our nation is at a critical time. Political candidates claim to have the answers. But the only hope for America remains Jesus! Will you join us in praying for our Nation, Leaders and Revival. It is only when individually people will repent and get right with God that the other issues will truly be taken care of in a way that pleases God!

Since May 2010 we have been meeting on the First Thursday of each month to pray for our Nation, Leaders and Revival. Once a year it falls on the same day as the National Day of Prayer. As people come to an event, encourage them to come back each month and keep the prayer going throughout the year!

We will be hosting our First Thursday prayer meetings at several locations (Dallas and Carrollton) which can be found on Meetup. If you’d like to participate at another location, please contact us and we would be glad to add your location to the Meetup group.

Each month we provide a suggested verse to guide your prayer time. This month we recommend using the National Day of Prayer theme verse, Isaiah 58:1a:

Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet.

Since May 2010, we have committed the First Thursday of each month to prayer for our nation, leaders and revival. This year, Franklin Graham is organizing a nationwide tour to pray at every State Capital. Check the schedule and see if you can attend the event in your state. In the meantime, why not commit to pray the First Thursday of each month at your own City Hall!

The truth or your opinion

What’s more important – the truth or your opinion? That is a question we like to lead with to share the Gospel with people. You’ll notice that often logic dictates the day in the natural realm. But when you go to the spiritual realm is there truth?

The Truth May Impact Your Opinion booklet may help sharing the gospel with. The book is intended to give to people that we have witnessed to to answer their objectsions. We have found that it also helps believers learn how to witness and combat these objections when they hear them. The book is available as a PDF download, Kindle download, audio book and in print at not charge.

Let’s not blame Him, He only gives grace

“Let’s not blame Him, He only gives grace”
If a fellow was hurling a discuss and somehow tore his meniscus, then could not bend to smell a hibiscus, is it God who seeks to afflict us?
If a girl ran next to a tree, with a bird and a hive and a bee, then was stung so that she could not see, is it God’s fault she could not flee?
If a man had a ringing in his ear that brought weeping and sorrow and fear. And on one side he could not hear. Is it God that caused him these tears?
And when death comes calling once more, as it has in millenniums before. Since Adam, from one shore to shore. Will hatred be our repore?
And why so oft is it heard, as though no one is reading His word. There’s no God, He’s aloof, life’s absurd! When our sin makes thinking so blurred.
Yes, our sin makes us to cry. It brings pain, it brings sorrow, we die. Since Eden, we’ve all bought the lie, we’ll still curse Him and madly ask why?
Now, in truth God can thwart any plan, of the Devil, in nature or man. If He wills, no illness can stand. Cause He’s sovereign and our life’s in His hand.
So, if He is in sovereign control, Why does death still take it’s toll? It’s our sin, if your taking poll. But God’s end-game is saving our soul!
Yes, eternal is what we should see. His salvation is priority. It’s why Jesus was nailed to the tree. Blood-wrought belief, and we are set free.
So the next time your mad in this place. Death is our fault, and this human race. It’s why Jesus had spit on His face. Let’s not blame Him, He only gives Grace!
