And Jonathan said to the young man that bare his armour, Come, and let us go over unto the garrison of these uncircumcised: it may be that the LORD will work for us: for there is no restraint to the LORD to save by many or by few. (1 Samuel 14:6)

Looking For A Few Good Men And Women To Preach The Real Gospel Of Jesus Christ

As noble as these interspiritualists and the rest of the rapidly expanding semi-pelagian (man-centered) Ecumenical Church of Deceit today might be in wishing to usher in “unity” within the visible church and for some a utopian Fatherhood of God, Brotherhood of Man and the neighborhood where you live, the Church of Jesus Christ is to follow the mandate given us by our Lord. Charles Spurgeon was right when he said:

So with you, Christian people: your one business in life is to lead men to believe in Jesus Christ bu the power of the Holy Spirit, and every other thing should be ,ade subservient to this one object. If you can but get them saved, everything else will come right in due time.

Oswald Chambers, a genuine Christian missionary, put it this way:

The key to the missionary message is the propitiation of Christ Jesus. Take any phase of Christ’s work – the healing phase, the saving and sanctifying phase; there is nothing limitless about those. “The Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world! ” – that is limitless. The missionary message is the limitless significance of Jesus Christ as the propitiation for our sins, and a missionary is one who is soaked in that revelation.

The key to the missionary message is the remissionary aspect of Christ’s life, not His kindness and His goodness, and His revealing of the Fatherhood of God; the great limitless significance is that He is the propitiation for our sins. The missionary message is not patriotic, it is irrespective of nations and of individuals, it is for the whole world… A missionary is one who is wedded to the charter of his Lord and Master, he has not to proclaim his own point of view, but to proclaim the Lamb of God. (Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, 213, 214)

However, each of those men were simply expounding upon what we have been told by the Master, Who bought God’s Church with His Own blood:

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (Matthew 28:18-20)

And we most certainly cannot do that by pandering to the fickle flesh of man, nor can we possibly do this supernatural job by our own human ingenuity. The horrific condition of the Christian Church in the world today ought to be your first clue as to the gross failure we have been in this generation. The following devotion by Spurgeon, a man of God powerful in Christ, talks about the only way any of this will ever change:

Usually when God intends greatly to bless a church. It will begin in this way: Two or three persons are distressed at the low state of affairs and become troubled even to anguish. Perhaps they do not speak to one another or know of the common grief, but they begin with flaming desire and untiring importunity.

The passion to see the church revived rules them. They think of it when they go to rest, they dream of it on their bed, they muse on it in the streets. This one thing eats them up. They suffer great heaviness and continual sorrow in their heart for perishing sinners; they travail in birth for souls.

When the sun rises, the mountaintops first catch the light, and those who constantly live near to God will be the first to feel the influence of the coming refreshing. The Lord give me a dozen importunate pleaders and lovers of souls, and by His grace we will shake London from end to end yet.

The work would go on without the mass of you Christians – many of you only hinder the march of the army. But give us a dozen lion-like, lamblike men, burning with intense love to Christ and souls, and nothing will be impossible to their faith. (At the Master’s Feet, October 11).

Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the Word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. (Zechariah 4:6)
