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
    leading 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
    already committed adultery in your heart.
  • 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
    from your sin,
  • 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
    your sins.
  • 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
    You can also download them,
    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
    or download it and print your own cards,
    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!
