Who is a Missionary?

 

WHO IS A MISSIONARY?


A missionary is one who is sent on a Mission.

Who then is a christian missionary?

A christian missionary is one who is sent on a Mission by God.

"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. (Mk. 16 :15) .

     In the light of the above, it follows that every saved, born-again child of  God is a missionary. It also follows that Missions, Soul Winning and Evangelism - in the context of Mk 16 :15 - is not a suggestion or mere advise. On the contrary, it is a command.

     "...Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man..."  if your  'very tight and busy schedule'  is the reason why you are not involved in missions.

     Admittedly, not every born-again child of God has the calling of a full time, front-line missionary. In fact, not even all the Apostles were full time like Paul. While the Pauls, Barnabases and Silases were out as field missionaries, others were home based, supporting them in prayer, cash and in kind. So if your busy schedule cannot allow you to go, you can become a home-based missions supporter, raising prayer and financial support for frontine missionaries.

     Now child of God what is your answer to this all-important question of all times:

"... I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" Isaiah6:8

(1) Is it, like Isaiah,  "Here am I; send me?"

Or,  (2) "Here am I Lord, but send them?"

Beloved, if  number one is your answer to the question above, then I will challenge you to STEP out of your comfort zone and STEP OVER to where the real action is: THE COMBAT ZONE OF WORLD MISSIONS!

Hausa in Nigeria


The rise of the seven Hausa states of northern Nigeria occurred between 500 and 700 A.D. The history of the area is intricately tied to Islam and the Fulani who wrested political power from the Hausa in the early 1800s through a series of holy wars. There was an Islamic presence in Hausaland as early as the 11th century. In the early days the number of individuals who accepted Islam was small, and Islam was usually practiced along with traditional Hausa religious beliefs. It was not until the early 1800s that the Fulani began to put pressure on the Hausa to undergo large scale conversion.


Ministry Obstacles: There is much mistrust and hostility between the Muslim tribes of northern Nigeria and the more generally Christian tribes to the south.


Outreach Ideas: The many followers of Jesus in southern Nigeria may find ways to more effectively carry the good news of Christ to their Hausa neighbors to the north. Pray they will be able to overcome tribal hostilities.


Pray for the followers of Christ: Pray for the few followers of Christ among the Hausa to become effective and fruitful in sharing and discussing Bible stories with their own and other families.


Pray for the entire people group: Pray for a movement to Jesus to multiply among Hausa families and communities. Pray that the Lord will give Hausa families teachable and understanding hearts. Pray also for peace in northern Nigeria.


Scripture Focus: "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest." Matthew 9:37-38

When Will Jesus Return?

"But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night;..." 2 Peter 3:10

"Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh." Matthew 25:13

Inspite of the above passages and many others where Jesus  warned that no man knows the exact day and hour of his coming, many false prophets and rash theologians have - over the years - continued to fix dates for the second coming of Christ.  And like all lying prophets who spoke when the Lord had not spoken, they have all been disappointed by events.

Notable among these false prediction makers was a Baptist preacher by the name of William Miller.

"Miller gained a large following, predicting that Christ would return on October 22, 1844. His theories were not far-fetched if one accepted interpretations in vogue through much of church history. The argument goes something like this: The prophet Daniel's eighth chapter speaks of 2,300 days. Many of the greatest scholars of the church (Augustine and Bede for example) took these days to stand for years. 490 years (the seventy "weeks" mentioned in Daniel 9:24) were "cut off" from the 2,300 years, leaving 1810 years. It was assumed that Christ died early in 31 ad. with 3-1/2 years of Daniel's 70th week still to run. Adding those 3-1/2 years to 31 ad. brings us to late 34 ad, at which time the 1810 remaining years supposedly began. 1810 + 34 brings us to 1844. Technical considerations placed the date in October 1844.

Under this interpretation, it seemed possible to match actual historical events with the sequence of events in Daniel chapter eleven. Byzantium, the pope, Egypt, Turkey, France and other countries, supposedly fulfilled various predictions derived from the Bible. The whole argument was developed at length and convinced vast numbers of people.

As many as 100,000 followers gathered at the predicted time in makeshift temples and on hillsides to "meet the bridegroom." Maxwell Pierson Gaddis attended one of these rallies and reported the result. When midnight came and Christ had not returned, people grew restless. Some walked out. One person said allowance must be made for differences of latitude and longitude between Palestine and the US. At about one o'clock one of the leaders rose and said "I never did fix upon the precise time myself, and I always told my brethren they would get into trouble if they did; but they would not listen to me, but followed other leaders...I believe the most important thing after all is, to be ready..."

Humiliated by what has been called "The Great Disappointment," some Millerites shucked their faith completely. Led by Miller, others formed the Adventists."

Merry Christmas to you

 

ANGRY BIRD?


You got angry in church and withdrew your choir membership, left ushering, stopped sanctuary cleaning and every other work you were doing in church.


Eventually you've stopped attending church services because someone spoke to you in a way you didn't like...


Most of the messages from the pulpit was against you from your opinion...


Nobody called you when you were sick because according to you they did not love or care in the church...


But pls excuse me...

You've not stopped working for the boss who insults you most of the time, neither have you stopped work because your colleagues spoke ill of you... (Money was the reason.)


When you were sick, you didn't wait for your boss to call you or look for you at work. Rather, you called and told him about your present condition. No complaint about him not visiting you (Fear of  query or loss of the job.)


Do you remember that at school, your teachers, your schoolmates and/or even your best friends offended you, yet you didn't stop schooling..


You can easily miss Church but not lectures because the lecturer will take attendance which counts in assessment.


You can be late with your appointment with God at Church but you will be extra early for your visa interview at the embassy...


Who are you deceiving?

I don't blame you too much. Maybe you don't know or you don't have adequate revelation about Church...


Please, Hear Me! Church is not an "Offense Club" where all things must done to please you and you alone.


What have you done in church for the good of others?

According to Scripture the first knowledge everybody must have about Church is that... It's The House Of God and The Gate of Heaven... Genesis 28:17...

Your charisma may take you there but your salvation and spirit-led life will help you know whether you will enter heaven or not.


Your service of God must be with reverential fear, honor and respect.


God is watching..so ...CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDE.


Have a fine day.
