Jesus didn't just tell us to win souls - He told us to make disciples. Every evangelist should carry a few of these and every church should keep a few in the pastors office if we are actually winning souls and want to see them established in the kingdom.

From the book, "First Things First", Russel Board writes on the subject of Prayer.
Today, we continue, with Dr. August S. Francis, to cover the subject of Prayer and the Types of Prayer that are covered, overall, in the Word of God. Prayer is conversation with the Lord and we must take it very seriously. How can we do the work of the Lord without speaking to the one we work for. Let's take a look at His Word!
We are presenting the last teaching on this subject and the closing section of this chapter. Please take the Fruit Of The Spirit very seriously. This is the personality of Jesus that the Holy Spirit wants to develop in our lives.
As the late B.H. Clendenon stated, "The Lord is more interested in 'us' being something then He is in 'us' doing something!" Be who the Lord wants you to be, then you will do what the Lord wants you to do.
The Gifts of the Spirit help us to present Jesus to the world! These are not "toys" for the church world to amuse themselves or to show off to each other. We were present these and are presented these gifts to manifest Jesus. And the Word of God says that the earth groans for the manifestation of the Sons of God.
We continue in the teaching on the Gifts of the Spirit.
It is important that we have an understanding of these Gifts, due to the fact that the job of the Holy Spirit is to empower us to represent and present Jesus to the world. Jesus lived, operated and spoke to us and into us of the supernatural. The Holy Spirit gives these gifts, not for our profit, but for the advancement of the Kingdom of God.
We know that there is a purpose in receiving the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, to lift up and present Jesus. But, there are also "tools" that the Lord has given us, by the Holy Spirit, that people may know that we properly represent the SAME Jesus that told us that " we would receive power".
Let's look at these "Gifts", their purpose and our responsibility.
Today's lesson from the Remnant Church Bible Institute is on that very subject. Join us for today's lesson from Remnant Church Bible Institute! "First Things First", "The Baptism In The Holy Spirit" at http://tobtr.com/s/6125597.
One thing is clear, there is more to what happened on the day of Pentecost than speaking in other tongues!
Being a witness is difficult enough without "feeling" stuff. Sometimes the martyrdom of living for Jesus is that you can feel the pain when people are going the wrong way. Sometimes its the feeling of being talked about, ridiculed and accused of things you are not guilty of. Maybe your hurt is in being misunderstood.
Whatever the situation, feelings are inconvenient. How easy it would be to witness and to live a life before the Lord if you didn't have to feel the pain of rejection. The Lord will "put you out" for the sake of reaching the lost. Not easy, but necessary.
We want to "do the stuff"! We want to see the power of the Lord work through our lives! But, if the power starts working without an understanding of the necessary "how", we could be in deep trouble.
Jesus looks at more than just what we do but, HE looks at the "why". Our motives are important to HIM, our loyalty and love are important to HIM. It is not just a matter of doing, it is a matter of being.

We deal with the overall subject of "Reach The Lost, At Any Cost". This has been our Tuesday subject for some time. Then we added a sub topic of "I Don't Want To Put You Out". This deals with the way in which the Lord will rearrange our lives to accomplish HIS will. The changes that HE makes in us are difficult to the flesh nature of man.
In Acts 1:8, HE tells us that HE has sent us power to be witnesses. One of the difficult things that HE tells us to do is to be witnesses in Jerusalem (home), to friends and family. This can be VERY inconvenient.
We want to "do the stuff", we want to "get off our blessed assurance! We want to work the works of God, as some put the question to Jesus. We need a formula.
Many times we do want to accomplish the will of the Lord, but we move in our own strength. We want to do the stuff, as John Wimber put it, but this must be accomplished out of a relationship. Jesus MUST be LORD! Not just Savior.
You and I must trust HIM with our everything that we might work the works of God!
There are so many of us that want revival. But revival does not come on the coattails of an evangelist, nor does it come just because we want it. Prayer is a very important part of the process. Prayer prepares us and the "ground".
Then, we must continue in prayer to continue to be ready and see the Lord move.
Bishop William Mackie continues in this very necessary series of "The Importance Of Prayer...Before, During And After Revival". Receive and apply, as the Lord speaks to you through this man of God.
The instructions that Jesus gave to us are not convenient, in our flesh. He will instruct us to do things that are "out of our comfort zone". The act of repentance is "out of our comfort zone".
Then, we have the joy of the promise, the infilling of the Holy Spirit. But even that has a "catch". The Holy Spirit was sent to help us to deal with the inconvenience. Is this a little fuzzy? Listen to today's message.
