Title: The Bible


1
The Bible
  • We want everyone to get it!

2
The Bible
  • We want everyone to get it!
  • EEM
  • Eastern European Missions

3
  • We cannot describe the horror of that day, or the
    sacrifices of so many, and the senseless loss of
    human life. Our prayers are with those who lost
    loved ones.

4
This morning, we turn our thoughts to The Bible!
  • We want everyone to get it!
  • Thats the goal of EEM
  • Eastern European Missions

5
50th Anniversary of EEM
  • Last Thursday evening, Carolyn, Ken, and I
    attended the Dinner in Fort Worth, in honor of 50
    years of work by European Missions. Ken has to
    be out of town today, but he was impressed by the
    accounts we were told, and said he was glad that
    though we are a small congregation, we can have a
    part in such a great work.

6
On the Table
  • As we sat down to the table, there were two items
    of food on the table a salad, and a piece of
    cake. The meal that goes between these would be
    served a bit later. As we finished the salad and
    looked at the cake, there was no one to stop us,
    and I had a bit of the dessert.

7
A special treat coming
  • As the program progressed, there were hints that
    there was a special treat coming. It was
    referred to as The Train Story. Nine oclock
    was approaching, and what was The Train Story?
    Then it came!

8
  • The Train Story

9
The Train Story
  • One of the Christians in a Communist country was
    riding on a train to get to his destination. The
    Conductor came through the train and noticed that
    the Christian had a Bible. He told the Bible
    from him and asked who he was, and what the book
    was. He said, oh, Im a Christian, and that is
    my Bible. The Conductor said, Well, youre an
    intelligent, educated man, you wont be needing
    this, and threw his Bible out the window.

10
But mine was marked up
  • A short time after reaching his destination, he
    met one of the Christians working with EEM. He
    noticed that he looked very sad, and asked what
    had happened. He explained how he had lost his
    Bible. His friend said, Dont worry we will
    get you another one. He said, But mine was
    marked up, and I could find anything I was
    looking for.

11
Two years later!
  • About two years passed, and the two friends met
    again. This time, the man who had lost his Bible
    was smiling and happy as he was before losing his
    Bible. He was asked what happened, and he said,
    I got my Bible back! Two boys were playing by
    the railroad track and found my Bible and took it
    to their parents who recognized it as a Bible.

12
We had to have a copy!
  • He had put his name and address in his Bible, so
    they mailed it back after having had it for two
    years. There was a note in the Bible. I said,
    We apologize for keeping your Bible for so long,
    but it took us a long time to copy it!

13
They copied and shared
  • That couple shared the Bible and their faith, and
    a church was begun.
  • As I listened to the stories that evening, I was
    touched, and I wanted to share some of my
    thoughts with you.

14
Those who sat in darkness
  • (Isa 92 NKJV) The people who walked in darkness
    Have seen a great light Those who dwelt in the
    land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light
    has shined.

15
Christ Refers to this verse
  • (Mat 413-17 NKJV) And leaving Nazareth, He came
    and dwelt in Capernaum, which is by the sea, in
    the regions of Zebulun and Naphtali, 14 that it
    might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the
    prophet, saying 15 "The land of Zebulun and
    the land of Naphtali, By the way of the sea,
    beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles

16
Christ Refers to this verse
  • (Mat 413-17 NKJV) 16 The people who sat in
    darkness have seen a great light, And upon those
    who sat in the region and shadow of death Light
    has dawned." 17 From that time Jesus began to
    preach and to say, "Repent, for the kingdom of
    heaven is at hand."

17
The people who sat in darkness
  • Today, I see another fulfillment of that prophecy
    as people in the former Soviet Union, are now
    seeing the light.

18
Ministers of education are requesting Bibles
  • One district asked for Bibles in the middle of
    the winter, and said they would come and get them
    in school buses and other vehicles.
  • We saw the video as buses loaded with Bibles
    struggled to get through the snow.
  • We saw a teacher talking to her students and
    telling them they were not to talk, and that they
    were to pay attention because these were words
    from God.

19
How is America Doing?
  • (Mat 1241-42 NKJV) "The men of Nineveh will
    rise up in the judgment with this generation and
    condemn it, because they repented at the
    preaching of Jonah and indeed a greater than
    Jonah is here. 42 "The queen of the South will
    rise up in the judgment with this generation and
    condemn it, for she came from the ends of the
    earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon and indeed a
    greater than Solomon is here.

20
Are we experiencing a famine in the land?
  • (Amos 811 KJV) Behold, the days come, saith the
    Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land,
    not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water,
    but of hearing the words of the LORD

21
The children of the Kingdom will be cast out.
  • (Mat 811-12 NKJV) "And I say to you that many
    will come from east and west, and sit down with
    Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of
    heaven. 12 "But the sons of the kingdom will be
    cast out into outer darkness. There will be
    weeping and gnashing of teeth."

22
God has greatly blessed America
  • O beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves
    of grain, For purple mountain majesties Above
    the fruited plain! America! America! God shed
    his grace on thee And crown thy good with
    brotherhood From sea to shining sea!

EEM Inspires Child to Give Bibles

    to raising money for EEM in order to give Bibles
    to school children in Ukraine! Jonathans
    efforts . . .translated into real children
    getting real Bibles.

25
EEM Puts Bibles in Schools
  • We recently received this letter from Elina, a
    fellow worker in EEM who lives in Russia . . .
    Through her efforts, EEM was given the
    opportunity to place childrens Bibles in the
    hands of kindergartners at a local Russian

    troubled for all these things must come to pass,
    but the end is not yet. 7 "For nation will rise

    you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will
    be hated by all nations for My name's sake. 10
    "And then many will be offended, will betray one
    another, and will hate one another. 11 "Then
    many false prophets will rise up and deceive
    many. 12 "And because lawlessness will abound,
    the love of many will grow cold.

39
Then this reminder
  • (Mat 246-14 NKJV) 13 "But he who endures to
    the end shall be saved. 14 "And this gospel of
    the kingdom will be preached in all the world as
    a witness to all the nations, and then the end

Are you ready? Are we ready?
  • Bibles are all around is, but do those who are
    all around us know the Bible?
  • More importantly, do they know God?
  • Do our lives show it?
  • When the Lord comes back, will we be cast out
    because we were only lukewarm at best.

41
Lukewarm is not good enough
  • (Rev 315-16 NKJV) "I know your works, that you
    are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were
    cold or hot. 16 "So then, because you are
    lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit
    you out of My mouth.
