## Witness Cards instruction video (long version)

• 0:01 - 0:03
Hey everyone out there!
I've done this video here
• 0:03 - 0:06
for you who want to have
the Witness Cards
• 0:06 - 0:08
or who have just got
the Witness Cards.
• 0:08 - 0:11
I want to show you
how you can use it.
• 0:12 - 0:15
The gospel is the same,
as we often do in the other videos,
• 0:15 - 0:19
where we just use the cups
and something else to illustrate the gospel.
• 0:19 - 0:21
But now we have these cards.
• 0:24 - 0:27
First, I want to say thank you
to a guy called David from Canada,
• 0:27 - 0:31
because he has seen me share
the gospel with cups and cookies,
• 0:31 - 0:36
he got inspired by that,
and he did some cards.
• 0:36 - 0:41
And because of these cards he did,
I got inspired by that to think:
• 0:41 - 0:46
Hey, can we do it even more
and illustrate even more?
• 0:46 - 0:50
So, I took his cards and then
I added five, six cards to it,
• 0:50 - 0:55
and changed a little,
to make what we have now.
• 0:55 - 0:57
This is "Witness Cards".
• 0:59 - 1:02
It's just normal cards
with a lot of pictures on.
• 1:03 - 1:07
When you open the pack
you have three cards in the beginning,
• 1:07 - 1:11
that are without numbers on.
These are the first three cards.
• 1:11 - 1:15
The next cards you have
there is a little number in the corner,
• 1:15 - 1:19
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, up to 13.
• 1:19 - 1:22
What is good with little numbers
there
• 1:22 - 1:25
is when you mix it all together
it's easy to put it in the right order,
• 1:25 - 1:30
so you know exactly where to start.
So it makes it much easier.
• 1:31 - 1:36
The first three cards is to have
so you can show a little that
• 1:36 - 1:39
there is an online "Pioneer School",
there is TLR map,
• 1:41 - 1:44
there you can find people near
you and how it works,
• 1:44 - 1:46
and we have the three movies.
• 1:46 - 1:50
So on the first three cards are little
commercials you can use, if you want.
• 1:50 - 1:55
You can also put the cards on the other way.
Then we have the chess game.
• 1:56 - 2:00
And the next three cards we have here
is also the chess game,
• 2:00 - 2:06
just the other color of the chess game.
• 2:06 - 2:10
What is important with the chess game
is that we want to illustrate for people
• 2:10 - 2:14
that God has done everything
He needed to do
• 2:14 - 2:16
and now it's up to man to repent.
• 2:16 - 2:20
I met many people who were waiting
for God to come and do something,
• 2:20 - 2:23
but God has already paid the price.
He paid His Son.
• 2:23 - 2:26
Now it's them need to move.
• 2:26 - 2:28
So, I often use it like this.
• 2:29 - 2:30
It's like playing chess.
• 2:31 - 2:33
You move, I move.
• 2:33 - 2:35
You move, I move.
• 2:36 - 2:37
You move, I move.
• 2:38 - 2:41
But, am I allowed to suddenly
do this and move three times?
• 2:41 - 2:42
No, I'm not.
• 2:42 - 2:47
Why? Because there are rules,
and I need to keep the rules.
• 2:47 - 2:52
The same way is with man,
that man has sinned,
• 2:52 - 2:55
and that was a bad move.
• 2:55 - 3:00
God then sent His Son Jesus
to die for man's sin.
• 3:00 - 3:02
Whose turn is it now?
• 3:02 - 3:05
It's your turn. It's that person's
who sits opposite you.
• 3:05 - 3:09
It's that person's turn to move
right now.
• 3:09 - 3:12
God says: Move, move, move!
He is ready to forgive people.
• 3:12 - 3:15
He is ready to save.
He is not keeping back.
• 3:15 - 3:19
He has already paid the price -
His Son Jesus Christ.
• 3:19 - 3:21
He is ready to move.
• 3:21 - 3:23
But it's up to us to move.
• 3:23 - 3:25
As soon as man moves,
• 3:26 - 3:28
then God will move.
• 3:28 - 3:32
But how can men move if they
don't know it's their turn to move?
• 3:32 - 3:36
How can man move if he doesn't know
the rules and what to do?
• 3:36 - 3:40
And this is what we want to do
with these cards.
• 3:40 - 3:44
We want to show people
what they need to do,
• 3:44 - 3:47
so God is doing what
He wants to do.
• 3:48 - 3:51
So we show people how they
need to repent, so God can forgive them,
• 3:51 - 3:53
how they need to get baptized,
so God can wash them clean,
• 3:53 - 3:56
how they need the Holy Spirit
so we can lay hands on them, and all of that.
• 3:56 - 4:00
So, this is the idea with the chess game.
• 4:00 - 4:03
And I would say with these cards,
when you have it, just practice,
• 4:03 - 4:06
sit and practice how to use it.
• 4:06 - 4:11
So, the chess game. If we turn around,
on the other side we have
• 4:11 - 4:15
the card illustrating God,
and then we have the tree of life
• 4:15 - 4:17
and the tree of knowledge good and evil.
• 4:18 - 4:21
The reason we made the tree of knowledge
good and evil so good to look at it,
• 4:21 - 4:25
it's because it was good to look at.
It was deceiving Adam and Eve,
• 4:25 - 4:27
bcause it was good to look at.
• 4:28 - 4:33
And then, in the garden, God put man.
Card number 1.
• 4:33 - 4:37
Man was supposed to eat of the tree of life
and live forever,
• 4:37 - 4:40
but the story was that he took
of a wrong tree,
• 4:40 - 4:44
and when they did that - sin came in.
They changed.
• 4:44 - 4:48
The difference here is light,
fellowship with God -
• 4:49 - 4:51
darkness, a stony heart.
• 4:51 - 4:54
So, the way I often illustrate it
is to say,
• 4:54 - 4:57
in the beginning, in the garden,
man walked with God,
• 4:57 - 4:59
man had fellowship with God
and everything was good,
• 4:59 - 5:02
and they should eat of the tree of life
and live forever.
• 5:03 - 5:06
But instead they took of the tree
of knowledge good and evil
• 5:06 - 5:09
and everything changed.
• 5:09 - 5:13
God now said:
If men eat of the tree of life now,
• 5:13 - 5:17
they will live forever and then
we will always have a problem with sin.
• 5:17 - 5:22
And because God, because of people's sins,
doesn't want people to live forever,
• 5:22 - 5:24
He threw them out of the garden
• 5:24 - 5:27
and He sat angels to keep them
away from the garden
• 5:27 - 5:30
and away from the tree of life.
• 5:30 - 5:33
So, now we have a world that is
very different from the world God created,
• 5:33 - 5:38
a world where people were not
without sin, with the soft heart,
• 5:38 - 5:43
walking with God, but where people have
stony heart, in sin, divided from God.
• 5:44 - 5:48
Then we have four more cards like this,
where we can say:
• 5:48 - 5:53
men then got kids who killed each other,
who got kids who rebelled,
• 5:53 - 5:57
and rebellious happened.
And sin came into the world.
• 5:57 - 6:00
I often use to illustrate
a picture of Noah,
• 6:00 - 6:03
that God then found Noah and
destroyed the rest,
• 6:03 - 6:05
but as soon as Noah came
out of the boat,
• 6:05 - 6:08
we have problem one more time.
• 6:08 - 6:10
It depends on how much time
you have,
• 6:10 - 6:12
if you will go into the depth with that.
• 6:12 - 6:15
Sometimes I do it.
Sometimes I don't do it.
• 6:15 - 6:18
It depends on how much time I have.
• 6:18 - 6:22
But what I often do is,
when we talk about sin,
• 6:23 - 6:27
the problem with sin is that
we are all now in a fallen world
• 6:27 - 6:30
and people compare themselves
to each other,
• 6:30 - 6:33
instead of, we have this one,
one card,
• 6:33 - 6:36
instead of how it was before
sin came in.
• 6:36 - 6:39
So we compare ourselves
with each other
• 6:39 - 6:43
and we become like the blind
• 6:43 - 6:46
And there take the good time
to talk about sin.
• 6:46 - 6:50
You can go to Matthew.
You can talk about that Jesus said:
• 6:50 - 6:52
If you have hate in your heart,
you are a murderer.
• 6:52 - 6:56
If you look with lust on somebody, you've
• 6:56 - 6:59
We have all fall short
of the glory of God.
• 6:59 - 7:04
Every man have sinned, and how
the conscience has been destroyed.
• 7:04 - 7:06
Because of sin.
• 7:06 - 7:08
And I can use an example first,
when I was younger
• 7:08 - 7:13
I stole a bicycle, I felt bad,
next time I stole a bicycle
• 7:13 - 7:17
I felt less bad, and next time
I felt even less.
• 7:17 - 7:20
Why? Because my heart
became harder, and harder and harder.
• 7:21 - 7:26
So, take a lot of time to talk about sin
and how sin is the problem.
• 7:26 - 7:29
Sin is dividing us from God.
• 7:29 - 7:33
And I have other videos like
"Reiki Master Meets Jesus",
• 7:33 - 7:37
where you can see how I share the gospel
just with cups and cookies,
• 7:37 - 7:40
but I talk about sin and what sin is.
• 7:41 - 7:46
So, take time to talk about sin
to get people to understand the problem.
• 7:46 - 7:47
What is the solution then?
• 7:47 - 7:51
That is the next card.
That is Jesus Christ.
• 7:51 - 7:55
So, there we talk about that God
could destroy all mankind
• 7:55 - 7:58
and still be good, still be loving,
still be righteous,
• 7:58 - 8:00
but He did something instead.
• 8:00 - 8:03
He sent His Son Jesus to die
for our sins.
• 8:03 - 8:06
And now Jesus came down here
• 8:06 - 8:08
and then illustrate how
He walked around here,
• 8:08 - 8:12
but where we have sinned,
He did not sin.
• 8:13 - 8:15
When He was around 30 years old
He got baptized.
• 8:15 - 8:20
And we have a card here
which illustrate the baptism,
• 8:20 - 8:23
where we put like water here.
• 8:23 - 8:28
And then we say that Jesus came down
in the water and He came up again.
• 8:28 - 8:31
And then the Holy Spirit came over Him.
• 8:31 - 8:34
And there we can use like,
the Holy Spirit came over Him as a dove,
• 8:34 - 8:39
and when we turn the card around,
you can see here...
• 8:39 - 8:42
that when you turn the card around,
on the other side there is a dove,
• 8:42 - 8:46
that symbolizes the Holy Spirit.
• 8:46 - 8:49
From that moment on,
Jesus was walking around here,
• 8:50 - 8:52
and then you can tell about
how He walked around,
• 8:52 - 8:54
healing the sick and casting out demons,
• 8:54 - 8:57
how He was proclaiming
the gospel of the Kingdom,
• 8:57 - 9:02
how He was telling people that they should
repent, turn away from their sins,
• 9:02 - 9:07
how they need to be born again
out of water and Spirit.
• 9:07 - 9:10
So use that to illustrate the gospel.
• 9:11 - 9:17
Jesus then, as the only one without sin,
died on the cross and He got buried.
• 9:17 - 9:21
He went down.
And then we have next card.
• 9:21 - 9:24
He went down,
and then you take the next card instead.
• 9:24 - 9:27
He went down
and then He rose up again.
• 9:28 - 9:31
If He had sinned like you and me,
and done what we have done,
• 9:31 - 9:34
He would have been in sin,
but He was the only one without sin,
• 9:34 - 9:36
He rose up again.
• 9:36 - 9:39
And there we have,
still with the Holy Spirit,
• 9:39 - 9:43
but the crown of thorns on Him,
• 9:43 - 9:48
to illustrate that Jesus was the slain one,
He died on the cross and He rose up again.
• 9:48 - 9:52
And there He went to heaven, as King,
• 9:54 - 9:58
and He sent His Holy Spirit down here.
• 9:58 - 10:00
What do we now need to do?
• 10:00 - 10:05
We are divided from God
because of our sins.
• 10:05 - 10:10
Jesus died on the cross to forgive us.
So now we need to repent,
• 10:10 - 10:15
turn away from our sins toward God,
put our faith in Christ.
• 10:17 - 10:19
Repentance is to turn around.
• 10:19 - 10:22
Here now you have a stony heart,
you turn around...
• 10:23 - 10:27
And when you turn around,
the thing that happens first
• 10:27 - 10:29
is that you get the new heart.
• 10:29 - 10:31
You get the heart of flesh.
• 10:31 - 10:33
The conscience becomes new.
• 10:35 - 10:38
People who have turned around
stop lying, they stop stealing,
• 10:38 - 10:40
they stop blaspheming God.
• 10:40 - 10:45
The first thing that often changes in people
are words that comes out of their mouth.
• 10:45 - 10:47
Oh, why do I speak so bad?
• 10:47 - 10:52
The conscience is now alive.
The conscience has been destroyed.
• 10:52 - 10:55
And the heart that's been stony
becomes new.
• 10:55 - 11:00
So, something new has started,
but it's not enough.
• 11:00 - 11:02
Because the body is dead.
• 11:02 - 11:06
What do you do with the dirty body?
• 11:06 - 11:08
You need to wash it clean.
• 11:09 - 11:11
And that is where the baptism
in water comes in.
• 11:11 - 11:13
And then tell about the baptism
in water,
• 11:13 - 11:17
that is not just a symbol,
it's not just cleaning of the outward dirt,
• 11:17 - 11:19
but it's a good conscience
toward God,
• 11:19 - 11:24
that the water now washes us clean,
save us from our sins, and Romans 6.
• 11:24 - 11:28
Take good time to explain what
baptism in water is.
• 11:28 - 11:31
That is not just a symbol,
what the Bible says about baptism.
• 11:31 - 11:35
You have the cards in your hand.
Then you take this card down,
• 11:35 - 11:39
so you are baptized with Christ,
you go down,
• 11:39 - 11:41
and then you take the new card up,
• 11:41 - 11:47
so you die with Christ
and then you rise up with Christ.
• 11:47 - 11:54
So now, you have not only got a new heart.
Now you are also washed clean,
• 11:54 - 11:58
so you are not dirty anymore.
You are clean, like Adam and Eve
• 11:58 - 12:02
were clean before sin came
and changed everything.
• 12:03 - 12:06
So, talk about that.
But that is not enough.
• 12:06 - 12:09
Like Jesus needed
to receive the Holy Spirit,
• 12:09 - 12:12
you and me all need
to receive the Holy Spirit.
• 12:12 - 12:16
And then we illustrate it,
like the Holy Spirit came over Jesus,
• 12:16 - 12:19
the Holy Spirit came over us,
and then we turn this card around.
• 12:20 - 12:25
On the other side we now see
a man with the new heart,
• 12:25 - 12:28
but here we see a man with power
• 12:28 - 12:32
and the Holy Spirit symbolized
as a dove over him.
• 12:32 - 12:38
So now, as Jesus was sent here on earth,
now we are sent here on earth.
• 12:38 - 12:42
So, now it's us who are walking here
as a new creation,
• 12:43 - 12:45
repented, born again out of water
and the Holy Spirit,
• 12:45 - 12:49
walking around here,
preaching the gospel and healing the sick.
• 12:49 - 12:55
Other people hear the same message,
repent toward God, get a new heart,
• 12:55 - 13:01
get baptized to Jesus, rise up again,
and receive the Holy Spirit.
• 13:01 - 13:06
And like that, the Kingdom of God
is growing.
• 13:06 - 13:11
Then say, very soon God is going
to come back and judge the world.
• 13:11 - 13:13
Or Jesus is going to come
and judge the world.
• 13:14 - 13:17
He's going to divide the sheep
from the goats.
• 13:18 - 13:22
And there, in the New Jerusalem,
you read about that in the last
• 13:22 - 13:25
Book of Revelation,
God is going to come down,
• 13:25 - 13:29
and in the middle of the garden,
we will have the tree of life,
• 13:29 - 13:31
and we will be able to take out
of the tree of life,
• 13:31 - 13:35
those who have washed them clean
is going to take out of the tree of life
• 13:35 - 13:40
and live forever, and one more time
everything is going to be so good,
• 13:40 - 13:42
so perfect, as it was in the beginning.
• 13:42 - 13:47
So this is somehow really good cards
to illustrate the gospel.
• 13:47 - 13:51
And what I love with these cards is
what you can do then.
• 13:51 - 13:56
What you can then do is you can
take those cards we have here,
• 13:57 - 14:03
and then put all those four cards up,
beside each other, like this,
• 14:03 - 14:09
and then ask people:
where are you in your life right now?
• 14:10 - 14:14
Are you still here
where you still have a stony heart,
• 14:14 - 14:17
you live in sin,
you have never seen your sin,
• 14:17 - 14:19
you have never turned away
• 14:19 - 14:22
you have never repented?
Are you here?
• 14:23 - 14:26
Then you need to repent.
That is the first step you need to do.
• 14:26 - 14:31
You need to turn away from your sin,
put your faith in Jesus and get a new heart.
• 14:31 - 14:33
But maybe those people you have talked to
are here,
• 14:33 - 14:37
that you actually have repented,
you have come to faith in Christ,
• 14:37 - 14:40
but you have never washed away
• 14:40 - 14:44
You have started the walk,
but you are still in your sins,
• 14:44 - 14:47
because it's not washed away yet.
• 14:47 - 14:49
You need to get baptized.
• 14:50 - 14:54
And we meet many of those people
who were baptized as babies
• 14:54 - 14:58
and later repented,
but baby baptism is not a baptism.
• 14:58 - 15:01
You have to have a repented heart
before you can get baptized.
• 15:02 - 15:04
So, maybe you are there,
or maybe you are there.
• 15:04 - 15:07
If you are there and have repented,
that is beautiful.
• 15:07 - 15:09
You have your faith in Christ.
That is beautiful.
• 15:09 - 15:12
But Jesus said: the one who believes
and is baptized shall be saved.
• 15:12 - 15:16
So, you also need to get baptized,
to get saved from your sins
• 15:16 - 15:20
in that way that you can
walk a new life with Christ.
• 15:21 - 15:23
So you need to get baptized in water.
• 15:24 - 15:27
That is good. That is beautiful,
but that is also not enough.
• 15:27 - 15:30
Jesus said that is the best for you
that I go away,
• 15:30 - 15:34
because if I don't go away,
I could not send my Holy Spirit down here.
• 15:34 - 15:37
And Jesus went away
and sent His Holy Spirit down here.
• 15:37 - 15:42
And maybe explain with Acts 8,
with Philip in Samaria,
• 15:42 - 15:47
that you can repent, you can get baptized
without receiving the Holy Spirit.
• 15:47 - 15:54
So you also need to receive the Holy Spirit
and walk as a disciple of Christ.
• 15:54 - 15:58
These are, somehow, four stages
that people are on.
• 15:58 - 16:01
They are in the sin, without Christ,
without hope in this world right now,
• 16:02 - 16:03
with the stony heart.
• 16:03 - 16:07
They have repented, beautiful,
but they are still walking around
• 16:07 - 16:09
with the old life, they were not baptized.
• 16:09 - 16:14
Or they are baptized in water, beautiful,
but they have not received the Holy Spirit.
• 16:14 - 16:18
Or they have received the Holy Spirit
and walk as a disciple
• 16:18 - 16:21
and continue growing in Christ.
• 16:21 - 16:27
And then ask people:
where are you of one of those four people?
• 16:27 - 16:31
Are you there, there, there or there?
• 16:31 - 16:36
And if they would say: I think I'm there.
Okay. Your next move is to do this.
• 16:36 - 16:40
Or if they say: I'm there.
Your next move is to do this.
• 16:40 - 16:43
If they say: I'm there.
Your next move is to do this.
• 16:43 - 16:47
And then, by that, illustrate them
what they need to do.
• 16:47 - 16:53
So, this is a very, very strong tool
to illustrate the gospel.
• 16:53 - 16:55
I encourage you to get the cards.
• 16:56 - 16:58
You can get it on our website.
• 16:58 - 17:03
if you want, for free, print it out, and so on.
• 17:04 - 17:08
Of course, it costs some money
to make cards like this,
• 17:08 - 17:10
but we will try to keep the price down.
• 17:10 - 17:15
You can get one set, but if you get five sets
and ten sets, it's even cheaper.
• 17:15 - 17:19
And then get the cards,
use it to illustrate it,
• 17:19 - 17:21
if you want,
• 17:21 - 17:26
but it's really good to have,
when you are out, talking with people,
• 17:26 - 17:28
you will not use them out on the street
like that,
• 17:28 - 17:31
but if you sit in a coffee shop,
if you sit in McDonald's,
• 17:31 - 17:34
if you go to a home,
have the cards with you,
• 17:34 - 17:37
take them up and illustrate.
• 17:37 - 17:40
And practice with them.
• 17:40 - 17:43
And then, when you start now,
you're like, okay,
• 17:43 - 17:46
now I have to start all over,
then there is the numbers,
• 17:46 - 17:51
number 1, number 2, number 3,
and then you can see,
• 17:51 - 17:55
what is number 4 of those,
this is number 4 here,
• 17:55 - 18:01
so 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.
And then you have the set again.
• 18:01 - 18:03
You put it in an you are ready
to use them next time.
• 18:04 - 18:06
So, we are so excited and I believe
• 18:06 - 18:10
many, many lives are going to get changed
through those cards.
• 18:10 - 18:12
Not because there is something special
with the cards,
• 18:12 - 18:18
but because you, hopefully,
will use those cards to illustrate,
• 18:18 - 18:20
to share the gospel to people
around you.
• 18:20 - 18:25
If the gospel is not being preached,
those cards will change nothing.
• 18:25 - 18:31
But if we use the cards to preach the gospel,
to illustrate what Jesus did on the cross,
• 18:31 - 18:35
many people need to see it,
they need to see more
• 18:35 - 18:39
than just to hear it, and those cards
here are really amazing tools.
• 18:39 - 18:43
So God bless you!
Use the cards. Practice with it.
• 18:43 - 18:46
If you want to know more about
how to share the gospel,
• 18:46 - 18:49
we have other videos also,
we can link to,
• 18:49 - 18:53
where you can see how you can go
even deeper in the gospel.
• 18:53 - 18:54
God bless you!
Bye-bye!
