- ReadTake The Gospel To The LostWe're fishermen of MankindYour Witness Matters Here In This Present World System
The question I'll present here within this message will cause you to rethink your personal comment to Jesus Christ. Simply put; I would like each of us to truly evaluate his/her faith position as a confessed follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. Simply, because for one to truly be a true follower of Jesus Christ. One has to be a submissive servant within the sphere of the Kingdom of God the true ruler of all things pertaining to this present life, as well as, the life.
In the book of Marks Gospel starting at chapter sixteen, verse sixteen. We read the following; Whosoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned (Mark 16:16)
Now what is meant by will be condemned? Well it's simple. Those who choose to believe the witness "Good News" Jesus Christ presented by those who are true disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. It's these who receive the message of the Gospel the "Good News" as given by the Lord Jesus Christ. These it is who're be saved an enter into a personal life changing personal relationship with Jesus Christ as both their Lord ans Savior.
But what about those who want believe on His divine name and His Gospel message of salvation through His divine name. Well, we read the result of their unbelief present in the same verse. But whoever does not believe will be condemned same verse (Mark 16:16).
Again what about those who believed on His name? Well, we read the following concerning them. There would be great signs which followed those who believed. And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all' they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well (Mark 16:17).
So let me ask you a question. How does these thing come to pass in the life of those, Jesus Christ, has called to service? Well, it's through their believing obedience and total submission to the divine call of Jesus Christ. Then, after believing, receiving, and there is action taken on their part. Then the Lord God begins to work with those who've given themselves over to His divine care.
After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it (Mark 16:19).
Now the question which remains; is are you truly totally committed to the calling of the "Great Commission" as given in the sixteenth chapter, sixteenth verse of the book of Marks Gospel? Only you can truly answer this question. Yes or No? God bless.

What did the Word of God command of each of us as followers of the Lord Jesus Christ? Did not Jesus Christ tells us to go an make disciples of all nations? Yes, of course He did tell each of us to be about the business of leading others to the cross. But, in the Church of today we witness everything, but, obedience to carry forth the command to make disciples.
The question we each must ask of ourselves is; are we living in obedience to the divine mandates of the Lord Jesus Christ? Many of us have friends we'll around everyday. And we've yet to witness to them about our personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Instead we've become content with just living here within this present sphere of life. To daily fit in with the ungodly behavior of those we're around an know as friends. But, the Word of God tells us "Witnessing to the lost should be a habit" for those who've confessed saving faith in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ.
That's why here at "Robert McAuthor Festivals" we daily seek to walk in obedience with the divine mandates of the word of God. This is the reason for this "News Letter" to encourage believers to live a obedient faith-filled lifestyle in the presence of the unbelieving world system.
Here's what the Word of God tell each believer to do daily in some way or other. And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them who that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen! A prayerful reading of these passages of the Word of God reveals the divine desire of the Lord Jesus Christ for His followers. To be about the business of being fishermen of this great human sea of lost souls this side of heaven. Looking for a great read Click Here God bless.

There are many who need the Gospel Message
Each day wed're given another chance to be involved in the blessed work the Lord God is doing. That's why it's so important to grow in the things of God. For the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation unto all who will believe it.
In our communities we can seek to witness to those who're lost. How else will these individuals get to receive Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. If we the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ want go out an proclaim this wonderful message of the awesome divine love of Jesus Christ to them.
Let us take a look into the divine Word of God to see just what it has to say concerning this important matter of going into the world to proclaim the Word of God.
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. (Mark 16:15-16)
But, it doesn't stop there. There signs and wonders which are to follow those who truly believe the preached gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. And these signs shall follow them that believe; in my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover (Mark 16:17, 18).
There you have it! We as the Church of the Living God of heaven and earth are to be about the business of telling. A lost hurting dark world system about the power of the Gospel to release them from the hellish powers of the devil. We know there's nothing good outside of the city of our great God.
We of all people have a true understanding of what it is the Lord God requires of each of us. Those who're truly obedient to fulfilling the divine will of God ought to daily be willing to reach out to those who're lost here in this present sphere of life.
WHAT'S ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE CITY OF GOD?
Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whore-mongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie (Revelation 22:14, 15).
Now, let each of us get this deep down into our spirit. We must be about the business of proclaiming the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. For this is the "Great Commission" which our wonderful Lord and Savior commanded each of us to fulfill before His soon return.

I can remember a time in my personal life when things wasn't going very well at all. I was living a lifestyle which was totally out of control. No one could get through to me. All I wanted was to continue doing just what I was doing.
There was so much hurt deep down within my soul. Until, I started use drugs just in order to cover up those hurtful feelings. I also started drinking a lots. Oh, I had heard the Gospel preached in the church, as well as, on the corners of the streets of Houston, Texas.
But, I simply didn't give my attention to the preaching of the Gospel during this time. It wasn't until my 20's that I had finally decided it was time for a change. Up until this time I was living on the streets of Houston, Texas - Downtown area. The Lord God begin once again to reach out to me in some really amazing ways.
He (God) kept sending individuals across my path until one day it happened. Broke down an received, Jesus Christ, as my personal Lord and Savior. Even though I was homeless at the time. The Lord God showed me his amazing love by leading me to the "Star of Hope Men Development Center.
I stayed there for about a years as I looked for a job, apartment, and a car. To my amazement the Lord God opened open some really awesome door to great opportunity. At last I was on my way to getting off the street an into my own place. I had found a new job an started working with a wonderful company.
Jesus Christ truly saved me from hells attack on my life. Today, I'm restored an doing good. Thanks God He so good an wants to see every captive set free. Jesus changed my life forever. From time to time you can find me in the Downtown area fellowshipping with the homeless.
Please keep "Robert McAuthor Ministries" in your daily prayers as we seek to help those who're in need of a helping hand. God bless.
