John 17:23(NIrV)

UNITED VISION FOR ONE BILLION SOULS BY 2030!

(July 25, 2022) Steeve Rees reports inspiring evangelistic news…

From Baptists to Pentecostals and everybody in between, people who believe the Lord Jesus wants to save at least one billion souls by 2030 also say his prayer for unity in John 17:23 is a key to breakthrough and harvest before the return of the Lord.

That is what was driving a diverse group of local, national and international believers to convene in Colorado Springs, Colorado earlier this month.

One billion souls harvest by 2030
Four ‘greats’ – unity, breakthrough, harvest and return – inspired national and global leaders, pastors, churches, ministries, and believers from across America and other nations, including many from South Korea, at a four-day summit of prayer, worship and missions-sharing.

While Evangelicals, Pentecostals and Charismatics are united in their desire for the Billion Soul Harvest (BSH), four of the eight billion people on earth have yet to hear the gospel for the first time. About one in four – or a little more than two billion people – call themselves Christians.

The Billion Soul Harvest Global Summit (https://www.billionsoulharvest.net) was stirred by Jesus’ vision of the fields ready for harvest (John 4:35). It sought to unite believers around the goal by 2030. But more than a billion is fine, too, if Jesus tarries after 2033.

OTHERS AND YOU – THE CHALLENGING VESTIBULE

(August 25, 2019) Robert and Maureen McQuillan bring some challenging reflections…

Vestibule – now there’s a word that indicates a chamber or channel opening into another. Hmm.

As we follow Jesus many times doors open that lead into new discoveries and adventures in God as we hear and yield to the Holy Spirit’s soft whispers to our heart. In this connection we recall the following challenge that speaks of discovering an important vestibule leading to heaven’s riches…

Others May, You Cannot … over the years there have been a number of items, tracts or articles based on this challenging thought and its relating issues.

Some 40 years we were handed the following thought-provoking piece that we were told was written by Bill Britton – one that’s still fresh, challenging and meaningful, especially if you’re sold out to the ministry call of Christ on your life. 

‘If God has called you to be really like Jesus, he will draw you into a life of crucifixion and humility, and put on you such demands of obedience that you will not be able to follow other people, or measure yourself by other Christians.

‘And, in many ways, he will seem to let other good people do things that he will not let you.

‘Other Christians (and ministers), who seem very religious and useful, may push themselves, pull strings and work schemes to carry out their plans, but you cannot, and if you attempt you will meet with such failure and rebuke from the Lord as to make you sorely penitent.

‘Others may boast of themselves, their work, success and writings, but the Holy Spirit will not allow you to do any such thing. And if you begin to, he will lead you into some deep mortification that will make you despise yourself and all your good works.

‘Others may be allowed to succeed in making money, or have a legacy left them, but it is likely that God will keep you poor because he wants you to have something far better than gold, namely a helpless dependence on him that he may have the privilege of supplying your needs day by day out of an unseen treasury.
