SEND OUT WORKERS - Let’s spread the Luke10:2b virus.

  • Not Synced
    The Call of Jesus
  • Not Synced
    Welcome to this lesson called
    "Send Out Workers".
  • Not Synced
    This is from chapter 8 in my book
    "The Call of Jesus"
  • Not Synced
    and video no. 8 in this series
    about the call of Jesus.
  • Not Synced
    We have now looked at
    how the harvest is ready
  • Not Synced
    and the harvest is plentiful,
    as Jesus is saying.
  • Not Synced
    The harvest is ripe.
    The harvest is not the problem.
  • Not Synced
    No, there is a great harvest
    that is waiting for all of us.
  • Not Synced
    The problem is not the harvest.
    The problem is the workers.
  • Not Synced
    You and me.
  • Not Synced
    So, the harvest is not the problem.
  • Not Synced
    The workers are the problem.
  • Not Synced
    And the answer to that problem,
    one of those is - pray.
  • Not Synced
    Pray. Not pray for the harvest
    to come in, as many people are doing,
  • Not Synced
    but pray for the workers to go out.
  • Not Synced
    And this is what we are going to look at
    in this chapter, in this video.
  • Not Synced
    So, let's start reading what Jesus
    is saying in Luke 10:2.
  • Not Synced
    "The harvest is plentiful,
    but the workers are few.
  • Not Synced
    Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore,
    to send out workers into His harvest field."
  • Not Synced
    So yes, we really need to start to ask,
    or, pray, as we see here.
  • Not Synced
    To pray, to ask, to beg. These are
    some of the words Jesus is using.
  • Not Synced
    These are very strong words:
    pray, ask,
  • Not Synced
    but we actually see the word,
    almost beg, like beg,
  • Not Synced
    beg, beg, beg the Lord of the harvest
    to send out workers.
  • Not Synced
    Jesus has commanded us to pray.
    And it's important that we pray.
  • Not Synced
    There are many people who pray
    every day.
  • Not Synced
    There are many people who, for example,
    pray the Lord's prayer.
  • Not Synced
    Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be Your name,
  • Not Synced
    Your Kingdom come
    and Your will be done
  • Not Synced
    or earth
    as it is in heaven.
  • Not Synced
    Out of Matthew 6.
  • Not Synced
    And it's good to pray that prayer.
  • Not Synced
    But you know, that was not the only
    prayer Jesus has commanded us to pray.
  • Not Synced
    He has not only said that we should pray
    the Lord's prayer there.
  • Not Synced
    He has also said that we should pray
    God to send out workers.
  • Not Synced
    Like Jesus is saying.
  • Not Synced
    But how many do, actually,
    pray that prayer?
  • Not Synced
    If I now go to the church and ask:
    How many pray the Lord's prayer?
  • Not Synced
    Almost everyone would lift up
    their hands.
  • Not Synced
    But if I ask: But how many pray
    this prayer Jesus has commanded us here
  • Not Synced
    to pray God to send out workers.
    Almost no one would lift up their hands.
  • Not Synced
    And that is a problem.
  • Not Synced
    Because what Jesus is saying here is
    as much the truth as what He said
  • Not Synced
    when it comes to Lord's prayer.
  • Not Synced
    But, what does it mean when we pray
    God to send out workers?
  • Not Synced
    I want to look a little at the word:
    "send out".
  • Not Synced
    I want to start reading from my book.
  • Not Synced
    "There are several interesting things
    about what Jesus is saying here in Luke 10:2.
  • Not Synced
    The first interesting thing is that the Bible
    translates one of Jesus' words,
  • Not Synced
    'to send.' But, the Greek word 'ekballo'
    could also mean 'to drive out.'
  • Not Synced
    The word 'ekballo' is the same word used
    when referring to driving out a demon.
  • Not Synced
    One of the first places in the Bible you see
    this word 'ekballo' used
  • Not Synced
    is in Matthew 10 where Jesus commands
    us to drive out demons.
  • Not Synced
    Matthew 10:7-8 states: As you go,
    proclaim the message:
  • Not Synced
    'The kingdom of heaven has come near.'
    Heal the sick, raise the dead,
  • Not Synced
    cleanse those who have leprosy,
    drive out (ekballo) demons.
  • Not Synced
    Freely you have received;
    freely give."
  • Not Synced
    So, what we see here is that the word
    "send" - "ekballo"
  • Not Synced
    could also be translated "drive out".
  • Not Synced
    And I believe it's saying so much more
    about what it is. Why?
  • Not Synced
    Because a demon doesn't want to go.
  • Not Synced
    A demon doesn't want to go.
  • Not Synced
    So, a demon needs to be driven out
    of a person.
  • Not Synced
    The same way, we as believers,
    we just don't want to go out in the harvest.
  • Not Synced
    We don't want to go out
    and talk about Jesus.
  • Not Synced
    We don't want to, so we need, often,
    to be driven out.
  • Not Synced
    And this is what it is.
  • Not Synced
    And if you start to pray, to beg,
    to ask God to drive out believers
  • Not Synced
    out in the harvest, send them,
    drive them out,
  • Not Synced
    He is going to answer it.
    He is going to answer it.
  • Not Synced
    And right now, in this time we are
    living in, there is a virus
  • Not Synced
    that has been spreading all over
    and people are in panic all over the world
  • Not Synced
    because of this coronavirus, but
    I want to introduce you to another virus,
  • Not Synced
    a virus that is not going to bring fear,
    but a virus that is going to bring hope,
  • Not Synced
    that's going to bring life.
    And that virus is called Luke 10:2b.
  • Not Synced
    The virus is called Luke 10:2b.
  • Not Synced
    And I want to read about that
    from my book here.
  • Not Synced
    "Some years ago, I heard about the virus
    that was spreading all over the world.
  • Not Synced
    This virus was called the 'Luke 10:2b'
    virus.
  • Not Synced
    This 'virus' started back in 2002
    when two young people started to pray
  • Not Synced
    out of Luke 10:2b.
  • Not Synced
    But, in order to remember to pray this prayer,
    these two young boys set their watch
  • Not Synced
    to beep every day at 10:02 in the morning
    and 10:02 in the evening.
  • Not Synced
    So when the clock would beep,
    they would remember these words
  • Not Synced
    in Luke 10:2 so they would pray to God
    to send out workers to the harvest.
  • Not Synced
    We can see that God has answered
    their prayers
  • Not Synced
    because we are now seeing many people
    all over the world going out to the harvest,
  • Not Synced
    and we are seeing more and more people
    praying the same prayer."
  • Not Synced
    Hallelujah!
  • Not Synced
    And I have also seen this
    again and again.
  • Not Synced
    When I started to pray:
    God, send out workers!
  • Not Synced
    Send out workers to the harvest!
    Send out workers to the harvest!
  • Not Synced
    I started to see God answer
    that prayer.
  • Not Synced
    The last year we, me,
    The Last Reformation,
  • Not Synced
    the people I'm working with,
    we have seen thousands of workers
  • Not Synced
    being sent out to the harvest.
  • Not Synced
    We need to pray this.
  • Not Synced
    We need to start to pray
    for workers to the harvest.
  • Not Synced
    So, let's spread this "virus".
    Take your watch, take your alarm clock,
  • Not Synced
    take your telephone and set it on 10:2.
  • Not Synced
    And then every morning 10:2
    and every evening 10:2,
  • Not Synced
    when you hear that alarm clock,
  • Not Synced
    you'll remember what Jesus is saying
    in Luke 10:2
  • Not Synced
    What will happen if you do this?
    First, you'll remember,
  • Not Synced
    you will keep your focus sharp,
    and you will start to pray:
  • Not Synced
    God, send out workers,
    drive out workers, drive out workers.
  • Not Synced
    And you will experience how
    He will answer your prayer.
  • Not Synced
    Second, you will also experience
    how He will send you out.
  • Not Synced
    Why? Because if you set your
    alarm clock every day and it: beep, beep...
  • Not Synced
    And you are thinking of the workers
    and you are praying God:
  • Not Synced
    send out workers, send out workers,
  • Not Synced
    after a short time you will feel
    something stirring up in you.
  • Not Synced
    You will also need to go out.
  • Not Synced
    You will also need to start
    to open your mouth and share about Jesus.
  • Not Synced
    It will help to pray this.
    It will help to keep your focus sharp.
  • Not Synced
    It will help you, but it will also
    drive you out yourself.
  • Not Synced
    Let's read some more from my book here.
  • Not Synced
    "Prayer is also important for us
    because it transforms us.
  • Not Synced
    When you start to pray out of Luke 10:2,
    you will start to experience
  • Not Synced
    how this prayer will actually create
    something within you.
  • Not Synced
    After praying this prayer for just
    a short time,
  • Not Synced
    you will understand that it is truly
    on God's heart to see people saved.
  • Not Synced
    We see this in Luke 15:4-7,
    when Jesus talks about leaving
  • Not Synced
    the ninety-nine sheep to go out
    to find the one sheep that was lost."
  • Not Synced
    So, here we see, when we pray,
    it will stir something up in us.
  • Not Synced
    But it will also give us the right heart,
  • Not Synced
    like Jesus left the 99
    to find that one sheep that was lost.
  • Not Synced
    When you start to pray: God,
    send out workers, send out workers
  • Not Synced
    to the harvest, send out workers,
    I ask You, the harvest is ready,
  • Not Synced
    the harvest is plentiful,
    the workers are few,
  • Not Synced
    when you start to pray that,
    God will answer that prayer
  • Not Synced
    and that prayer will stir something up
    inside of you.
  • Not Synced
    You know, it's time to pray biblical.
  • Not Synced
    It's time to pray according
    to the Word.
  • Not Synced
    For years we have been praying
    for revival like.
  • Not Synced
    Revival is something that just comes
    by itself.
  • Not Synced
    Like, suddenly, the harvest just come
    through the door.
  • Not Synced
    But Jesus has not, one place, said that
    we should pray for the harvest to come in.
  • Not Synced
    Has He?
  • Not Synced
    No. But He has asked us to pray
    for the workers to go out.
  • Not Synced
    Why? Because harvest cannot come in
    to the barn.
  • Not Synced
    Harvest cannot move.
    We have to go out to it.
  • Not Synced
    And I'm going to tell more
    about that later.
  • Not Synced
    So, it's wrong if you pray for the
    revival like.
  • Not Synced
    It is something that just comes totally
    by itself, from God.
  • Not Synced
    No, we need to go out in harvest.
  • Not Synced
    And there I'm not going
