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 only talking
    about going out on the street.
  • Not Synced
    I'm talking about your neighbors,
    your friends, your family, your coworkers,
  • Not Synced
    people in your neighborhood.
  • Not Synced
    It is so important this truth
    about the harvest that is ready,
  • Not Synced
    and pray God to send out workers.
    Why?
  • Not Synced
    Because Satan has been trying so much
    to keep us away from this.
  • Not Synced
    So, we need to start to pray,
    pray according to God's word.
  • Not Synced
    Not just say a lot of words,
    but pray in faith according to God's words.
  • Not Synced
    And I want to read more
    from my book here.
  • Not Synced
    "To pray for a revival as if it is totally
    up to God to do it is not a biblical prayer.
  • Not Synced
    Are you aware that we can pray wrong?
  • Not Synced
    If we pray for things that are not biblical,
    we will not see any results.
  • Not Synced
    James 4:3 talks about this by stating:
    'When you pray, you do not receive,
  • Not Synced
    because you pray with wrong motives,
    that you may spend it on your pleasures.
  • Not Synced
    Matthew 6:7 states: 'And when you pray,
    do not keep on babbling like pagans,
  • Not Synced
    for they think they will be heard
    because of their many words."
  • Not Synced
    Yes, this is so true.
    We can pray wrong
  • Not Synced
    and we can just pray a lot of words
    and think that
  • Not Synced
    if we just repeat the prayer and
    pray a lot of words
  • Not Synced
    we would be heard.
    No, we need to pray from our hearts.
  • Not Synced
    Many years ago I was praying
    the Lord's prayer like
  • Not Synced
    just words, words, words, words...
    My heart was not in it.
  • Not Synced
    And I know, as I said,
    many people are praying that today.
  • Not Synced
    They are just praying words.
  • Not Synced
    We need to pray biblical
    and we need to pray from our heart.
  • Not Synced
    We need to pray according
    to God's will.
  • Not Synced
    A good example is what we saw
    here with Jesus.
  • Not Synced
    Pray the Lord of the harvest
    to send workers.
  • Not Synced
    This is a biblical prayer and
    this is a prayer according to God's will.
  • Not Synced
    And if you pray that from your heart,
    you know that you've already received
  • Not Synced
    what you prayed for.
  • Not Synced
    I can come with and example
    of a bad prayer,
  • Not Synced
    that is not according to God's word.
  • Not Synced
    Some years ago, I remember,
    I led a new person to Christ,
  • Not Synced
    who had no Christian background.
    She was very new in the faith.
  • Not Synced
    Short time after she came to faith
    she came to me very excited.
  • Not Synced
    She said: Torben, Torben,
    I have an idea. I have an idea.
  • Not Synced
    And I was very excited to listen
    to her idea.
  • Not Synced
    I have an idea. I really believe
    it was God's, she said.
  • Not Synced
    And I was like: Okay, let me hear.
  • Not Synced
    Who is the one who's creating
    all the problems in the world?
  • Not Synced
    Satan.
  • Not Synced
    What if we can get all Christians
    to come together and pray for Satan,
  • Not Synced
    that Satan might get saved.
    If Satan would get saved
  • Not Synced
    we would not have
    those problems anymore.
  • Not Synced
    She was so sweet when she
    said that.
  • Not Synced
    And I couldn't stop laughing.
  • Not Synced
    Her heart was good,
    her intention was good,
  • Not Synced
    but to pray for Satan to get saved
    is waste of time. Why?
  • Not Synced
    It's not a biblical prayer.
    God is not going to answer it. Why?
  • Not Synced
    Because it goes against His word.
  • Not Synced
    Another prayer that is not biblical:
  • Not Synced
    Oh God, God I pray for my city
    that they would get saved.
  • Not Synced
    Or, God I pray that You will
    send people to our church.
  • Not Synced
    Now I'm provoking you a little,
  • Not Synced
    but where do you find those
    prayers, like, if we just pray
  • Not Synced
    people would get saved automatically.
  • Not Synced
    It almost sounds in those prayers
    like it's God who's keeping back.
  • Not Synced
    Like God doesn't want people
    to get saved.
  • Not Synced
    God wants people to get saved.
  • Not Synced
    So much that He sent His Son Jesus
    to die on the cross.
  • Not Synced
    God sent His Son to die for every man
    out there.
  • Not Synced
    The harvest is plentiful.
  • Not Synced
    Workers are the problem.
  • Not Synced
    Not God, in that sense.
  • Not Synced
    I don't say that you cannot pray for your
    city. I don't say that it's not okay
  • Not Synced
    to pray for people. You can pray for
    people that they may open their hearts
  • Not Synced
    to receive, and you can pray God
    to draw people.
  • Not Synced
    But, if you pray like,
    you don't need to do anything else.
  • Not Synced
    Or like, they will come into the church
    by themselves
  • Not Synced
    or suddenly give their lives to God
    by themselves.
  • Not Synced
    Then you are praying a wrong prayer.
  • Not Synced
    It's unbiblical.
  • Not Synced
    And this is how many people
    have been praying in churches for years.
  • Not Synced
    Oh God, send people like this,
    to get saved.
  • Not Synced
    Do you know, faith comes by
    hearing the Word of God.
  • Not Synced
    And we need somebody to preach.
  • Not Synced
    Paul is very, very clear:
    We need people to be sent out.
  • Not Synced
    Paul is saying that in Romans 10:13.
    And I will read here.
  • Not Synced
    "Everyone who calls on the name of
    the Lord Jesus will be saved.
  • Not Synced
    How, then, can they call on the one
    they have not believed in?
  • Not Synced
    And how can they believe in the one
    they have not yet heard?
  • Not Synced
    And how can they hear without
    someone preaching to them?
  • Not Synced
    And how can someone preach
    unless they are sent?"
  • Not Synced
    Can you see it? This is so clear.
  • Not Synced
    We need to pray God to send
    out workers. Why?
  • Not Synced
    Because when people are sent
    they can preach,
  • Not Synced
    and when they preach
    other people can hear,
  • Not Synced
    and they can come to faith,
    and they can get saved.
  • Not Synced
    People don't come to faith
    without hearing.
  • Not Synced
    We can pray for our cities,
    but a more biblical prayer...
  • Not Synced
    is pray God to send out workers.
  • Not Synced
    So, let's start to pray that.
  • Not Synced
    Let's every morning,
    when you wake up, the alarm clock,
  • Not Synced
    and every evening, or during the day,
    when you think of it,
  • Not Synced
    pray this: Oh God, I pray for those
    people out there.
  • Not Synced
    God, I pray for people in our cities,
    that You will send out workers to our city.
  • Not Synced
    God, I pray for my neighbor
    that You will send out workers.
  • Not Synced
    God, I pray for my family
    that You will send out workers,
  • Not Synced
    to preach the gospel,
    so they can hear it, so they can believe,
  • Not Synced
    so they can get saved.
  • Not Synced
    Set your alarm clock.
    Set your alarm clock. Do that.
  • Not Synced
    To 10.02, as a reminder to you,
    about this, about what Jesus is saying,
  • Not Synced
    to remind you to pray,
    but also keep your focus sharp
  • Not Synced
    and get a new heart for
    the people out there.
  • Not Synced
    And God will answer this prayer.
  • Not Synced
    And then, please, spread this
    "virus".
  • Not Synced
    This "virus" you are commanded
    to spread.
  • Not Synced
    You are allowed to spread.
  • Not Synced
    Spread this "virus" to everyone
    out there
  • Not Synced
    and let's see a prayer movement,
    where people start to pray biblical,
  • Not Synced
    pray according to God's Word,
  • Not Synced
    because then we know He answers
    and give us what we prayed for.
  • Not Synced
    And I have testimony after testimony,
    after testimony, of that.
  • Not Synced
    But I will start to pray now.
    Let me pray.
  • Not Synced
    God, I pray for everyone who is
    seeing this.
  • Not Synced
    God, I pray that You will stir
    something up in their hearts.
  • Not Synced
    And God I pray that You will put
    this on their hearts,
  • Not Synced
    that they, together with me,
    may pray, God.
  • Not Synced
    God, send out workers, God.
  • Not Synced
    God, we pray that You will send out
    workers to our city.
  • Not Synced
    God, we pray that You will send out
    workers to our country, God.
  • Not Synced
    God, send out workers.
    Drive out workers from our churches, God.
  • Not Synced
    God, take the people from our churches,
    and we pray, God,
  • Not Synced
    that You will drive them out, God.
    Drive them out in the harvest, God.
  • Not Synced
    The harvest that is ready,
    the harvest that is plentiful, God.
  • Not Synced
    The harvest is not the problem.
    The problem is the workers,
  • Not Synced
    and workers are few.
    So God, we pray...
  • Not Synced
    we stand together and we pray
    that You will drive out workers
  • Not Synced
    to the harvest, God.
  • Not Synced
    And we will see that the harvest is
    ready and plentiful, as You have said.
  • Not Synced
    Hallelujah!
  • Not Synced
    Pray this. Keep praying this.
    Stand together with me.
  • Not Synced
    Pray this every morning and
    every evening, during the day,
  • Not Synced
    and see how it's going to transform
    your life.
  • Not Synced
    Until next time, share this video
    and spread the "virus"

    to millions of people out there.
    Spread it as much as you can.
  • Not Synced
    And then we will see more workers
    go out,
  • Not Synced
    find the person of peace,
    as we are going to talk about later,
  • Not Synced
    go into the households, healing the sick,
    casting out demons,
  • Not Synced
    and we will see a move of God
    like we have never ever seen before.
  • Not Synced
    God bless you!
    See you next time! Bye-bye!
