AS LAMBS AMONG WOLVES - an important lesson for all of us! - overcoming your fear

  • Not Synced
    The Call of Jesus
  • Not Synced
    Welcome to this lesson 9 that is called
    "As Lambs Among Wolves".
  • Not Synced
    I hope it's okay I'm going to provoke
    a little here.
  • Not Synced
    I'm going to challenge you and say
    something that will really make you think.
  • Not Synced
    I hope you are ready for that.
  • Not Synced
    We start to get a lot of feedback
    from my new book "The Call of Jesus".
  • Not Synced
    A person from Canada wrote this
    about the book:
  • Not Synced
    "Best book I've ever read besides
    the Bible.
  • Not Synced
    This book is a must read for everybody,
    especially the Body of Christ!
  • Not Synced
    It's a wake-up call that's urgently
    needed in these last days,
  • Not Synced
    and will lead believers back to
    the first love with real joy and excitement
  • Not Synced
    in their walk with the Lord!"
  • Not Synced
    So, one person said that it was the best book
    he has ever read, beside the Bible.
  • Not Synced
    And I believe also, when you read the book,
    the whole book,
  • Not Synced
    or move on in this video series with me,
    you will find it very, very good,
  • Not Synced
    very interesting. Why?
  • Not Synced
    Especially in the end, when we are
    going to put it all together.
  • Not Synced
    What we are doing now is we are
    taking it verse by verse,
  • Not Synced
    word by word, what Jesus is saying
    in Luke 10.
  • Not Synced
    And then later we will put more
    meat on it,
  • Not Synced
    and later we will put it together,
  • Not Synced
    and send you out with it,
  • Not Synced
    send you out to live this life
    Jesus has for you.
  • Not Synced
    After Jesus said in the beginning
    of Luke 10 that the harvest is ready
  • Not Synced
    and the workers are few,
    then He said that we should pray
  • Not Synced
    the Lord of the harvest
    to send out workers -
  • Not Synced
    something we have been looking at.
  • Not Synced
    And then in Luke 10:3 He says this:
  • Not Synced
    "Go your way: behold, I send you out
    as lambs among wolves."
  • Not Synced
    This is what we are going to look at today.
  • Not Synced
    One of the first things He said there is:
    Go!
  • Not Synced
    Go your way.
  • Not Synced
    What you need to understand is that
    the harvest is ready.
  • Not Synced
    The harvest is plentiful.
  • Not Synced
    The harvest is not the problem.
  • Not Synced
    The problem is the workers.
  • Not Synced
    And we looked at that last time,
    that we should pray the Lord of the harvest
  • Not Synced
    to send out workers.
  • Not Synced
    But then He says this:
    Go your way.
  • Not Synced
    Or said in other works:
    Go out in harvest.
  • Not Synced
    Go out in the harvest.
  • Not Synced
    Why? Because the harvest is not going to
    come to us.
  • Not Synced
    Try to imagine a farmer,
    a farmer out in the real world,
  • Not Synced
    who is standing there and looking
    at the harvest.
  • Not Synced
    And when he's looking at the harvest
    he sees that the harvest is huge,
  • Not Synced
    the harvest is plentiful and
    the harvest is ripe.
  • Not Synced
    The harvest is so ready,
    the harvest is so ripe.
  • Not Synced
    And he just feels the joy.
  • Not Synced
    What does he do?
  • Not Synced
    He opens the barn door
    and then he looks over the harvest,
  • Not Synced
    and then this farmer would say:
    Harvest! Come in!
  • Not Synced
    Come in to the barn!
  • Not Synced
    And then, he looks at the harvest
    and he sees something interesting.
  • Not Synced
    He sees that the harvest doesn't
    come into the barn.
  • Not Synced
    So, he starts to think.
  • Not Synced
    What is wrong with the harvest?
  • Not Synced
    Maybe the harvest doesn't hear me.
    Maybe I need to shout a little louder.
  • Not Synced
    Harvest! Harvest! Come in!
  • Not Synced
    Harvest, the barn is ready!
    The barn is ready for you!
  • Not Synced
    Come in, harvest!
  • Not Synced
    And he shouts louder.
  • Not Synced
    But still the harvest doesn't come in.
  • Not Synced
    So, he starts to think what is wrong
    with that harvest.
  • Not Synced
    Why the harvest doesn't want to come in
    to the barn?
  • Not Synced
    And then he looks at the barn and
    he thinks: Oh, now I know it.
  • Not Synced
    The barn is dirty.
  • Not Synced
    The harvest doesn't want to come
    into a dirty barn.
  • Not Synced
    So, he fixes the barn now.
  • Not Synced
    He gets all the dirt out and he even
    puts a nice carpet on the barn floor.
  • Not Synced
    He even puts a coffee machine into the barn,
    he fixes it up, and have light,
  • Not Synced
    and he makes the barn so cozy.
    He even puts some very nice soft music in,
  • Not Synced
    to the barn, so the barn is so amazing
    and so cozy.
  • Not Synced
    And then he goes out and he looks
    at the harvest and says:
  • Not Synced
    Harvest, come in!
  • Not Synced
    And the harvest still doesn't come in.
  • Not Synced
    Why?
  • Not Synced
    Because the harvest doesn't care
    how cozy the barn is.
  • Not Synced
    The harvest cannot stand up and come in.
  • Not Synced
    The harvest is not created
    to come into the barn.
  • Not Synced
    The only thing he, actually, got out of
    fixing the barn and making it so cozy,
  • Not Synced
    with soft music, and light, and sofa,
    and coffee machine,
  • Not Synced
    is that now all the workers are sitting in
    there and doesn't want to go out.
  • Not Synced
    The only thing we really get out of
    fixing our churches
  • Not Synced
    is that is so cozy and nice that no one
    wants to leave them.
  • Not Synced
    But you know, the people out there,
    the harvest, the sinners,
  • Not Synced
    they don't care how fine the churches are.
  • Not Synced
    Harvest is not created to stand up
    and go into the barn.
  • Not Synced
    No, the workers are created to stand up
    and go out in the harvest.
  • Not Synced
    And this is what we should have done
    in the churches.
  • Not Synced
    Instead of making nice churches and
    hoping that people will come in to us,
  • Not Synced
    we should have train them and equip them,
    the workers, to go out there.
  • Not Synced
    And again, I'd like to say,
    not go and stand on a platform in Africa.
  • Not Synced
    Just go out to that harvest that's just
    outside the door,
  • Not Synced
    to find the person of peace,
    and go to their house,
  • Not Synced
    and eat and drink what they serve,
  • Not Synced
    and do everything
    I'm going to look at later in this book.
  • Not Synced
    I want to read here.
  • Not Synced
    "Are we not doing exactly
    what the farmer did in our churches?
  • Not Synced
    We use a lot of time, money,
    resources to make our churches (barns)
  • Not Synced
    look nice and cozy
    with beautiful carpet and lights.
  • Not Synced
    We even play music
    to set the right atmosphere.
  • Not Synced
    We do all of this with the belief
    that if the church is nice and cozy
  • Not Synced
    and the sermon is just right,
    then people will start to come
  • Not Synced
    into the church by themselves
    and get saved."
  • Not Synced
    I just want to say...
  • Not Synced
    This is what most people are doing.
  • Not Synced
    Yes, of course, you can see a little fruit
    of that.
  • Not Synced
    Of course, there are some people today,
  • Not Synced
    and mostly church people,
  • Not Synced
    who change one church to another,
    and so on,
  • Not Synced
    but a sinner out there...
  • Not Synced
    Yes, we see a little fruit,
    but I guarantee you...
  • Not Synced
    You will see so much more fruit
  • Not Synced
    instead, if you start to train and equip
    workers to go out.
