Eternity is rushing towards us.
You and everyone else must be ready.
A friend of the ministry sent in this witnessing story. It is really going to make you think!
I handed Dot a tract at the hospital, and she said, â€œThank you, whatâ€™s this?â€
â€œItâ€™s a tract. Iâ€™m a Christian, and I give out these cards so people donâ€™t go where they donâ€™t want to go.â€
She said, â€œOh, Iâ€™m a Christian, too!â€
â€œReally?! Iâ€™m a born-again Christian.Â How about you?â€
She said, â€œNo, Iâ€™m a Hindu!â€
â€œYouâ€™re Hindu?!Â How can someone be Hindu and a Christian at the same time?â€
â€œI know God exists because Iâ€™ve had some spiritual experiences that I canâ€™t deny.â€Â
â€œWell, itâ€™s important to know you have an enemy of your soul who would love to give you some very real experiences to steer you away from the truth about salvation. The most important question of your existence is where youâ€™re going when you die.â€
â€œI believe that when I die, Iâ€™m coming back to this earth.â€
â€œSo you must believe in reincarnation, but think about how the force of the universe or the so-calledÂ â€˜collective Christ consciousnessâ€™Â doesnâ€™t even tell you how to come back as a human. How can you be sure youâ€™re coming back to earth at all? The God of the Bible tells you exactly what happens when you die.â€ Then I explained the gospel to her.
Dot then said she had been reading the Koran and thought it sounded just like the Bible. I asked her why she would be reading the Koran if she was sure Hinduism is correct? Then I explained how Islam says, â€œThere is no god but Allah, and Allah has no son,â€ but in Christianity, itâ€™s all about the Son. I said, â€œTheÂ â€˜Jesusâ€™Â of Islam, thatâ€™s supposedly coming back with the Mahdi, is not the Jesus of the Bible.â€
Dot continued, â€œBut donâ€™t you think all religions worship the same god and that we just come to him in different ways? At the Spiritual Awareness Center I attend, we learn about â€˜godâ€™ and the principles of science.â€
I said, â€œYou want to be very careful about the philosophies of men that are falsely called â€˜science.â€™ You want to know for sure that what youâ€™re staking your eternal life on is real.â€ Then I explained how the Bible can be proven true through fulfilled prophecies and other evidences.
I said, â€œDot, it doesnâ€™t matter how sincerely you believe these things or how sincere the people are who teach them. If what they teach canâ€™t be proven true, then itâ€™s false. Only the Bible can be validated historically, scientifically, and archaeologically. And only the real Jesus can remove your sins.â€
Then Dot suddenly changed her tune and said, â€œYou know, itâ€™s so interesting that Iâ€™ve run into you today and that weâ€™re having this conversation. Itâ€™s so interesting.â€
Kind of puzzled, I asked, â€œWhy is that?â€Â
â€œBecause just a few weeks ago, I ran into a couple who do the same thing youâ€™re doing. They talk about the same things. They said they are living for nothing other than talking to people about Jesus and the Bible.â€Â
I was floored and said, â€œThatâ€™s amazing, Dot. I think the real God had me cross paths with you today because He wants to get your attention before itâ€™s too late.â€
She asked for my email address and phone number, and I wrote them in the materials I had given her. I said I would pray for her. Then we parted ways.
2 Timothy 2:15:
â€œStudy to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.â€
Â Â Â False teachings are swirling all around us. How are you going to discern the true from the false?Â You must study the Bible so you can spot doctrinal error quickly and easily. You never know if God has a â€œDotâ€ out there waiting to hear truth!
Until the Nets are Full,
P.S.Â Remember to have tracts in your hands, pockets, or pocketbook. God uses them all the time, and He will keep using them until He returns.
