Had some good reasons to thank, to exalt, and to all-out praise the Lord yesterday. Today I have some new reasons and a big one starts with the letter “M.”

It ain't just come hear. The Gospel is both "Come" and "Go." Go tell it on the mountain, and go respectfully tell it to people everywhere!
Can I 'splain, talk, chat or sing 'bout my Maker and have ya not roll your eyes? Can I say it? Come on. http://t.co/AZxdSiSOKM— Kurt von Schleicher (@kurtwvs) August 29, 2014

One out of every twenty-five verses in the New Testament refers either to the rapture of the church or to Christ’s coming again to reign over this world.
Christ is at hand. Yay! U ready? “Ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.” —Matt. 24:42,43,44,45,46,47,48,49,50,51 http://t.co/dArHMAKh8F

Woke up this morning feelin' excited as.. That Day draws near. There's no place like home and we have an exciting wedding right around the corner there. How 'bout you—you excited 'bout it, or filled with dread? It's really not the time to be outside of a vital relationship with Jesus Christ.. like "Hey, life'll go on as it has. I'm my own man, I can do it myself—just don't like or need to obey any leader..anywhere. I have a accomplished a whole lot and I deserve to be respected."
Look around you.. today Russian troups invade the Ukraine as assaults intensify (and the world passively stands by to watch), we have Al Qaeda hinting of an attack date - a plot against Vegas, New York City and military targets. We have another US rush to judgement, riots, and now the suing of Furgason. You've seen Isis (which is probably Stateside among us with our open boarders). Things among the nations have changed quickly and radically, but God has set a time to wrap things up (hey no worries, I won't foolishly set a date as many people have done, but it's a good time to start studyin' some eschatology). It's time to pray and act in that order.
It's really not the time for self-justification, for pride, for your own way, for pretense so that others might think you're great, or for any denial of the facts of the Bible which says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23). In this day when people just aren't ready cuz they're inverted, perverted, or self-absorbed.. it's high time for us to get ready, to stay ready, and then to help others get ready! Wouldn't you now say there should be a sense of urgency about our thinkin', prayin' and doin'. Sure!
So do you long to see His face or have you become all distracted with what you want down here? Ain't trying to guilt anyone, I just want to motivate and inspire you. We are living during some very interesting days and I want what's best for you and yours. Did you know that in the 260 chapters of the New Testament, there are 318 references to Christ's second advent—yup, 1 out of every 25 verses (says Dr John Walvoord the formost authority on this - was a professor from Dallas Theological Seminary). Twenty-three of the 27 New Testament books refer to this great event. I'm so looking forward to it, but even more to the Rapture where the Church is caught away. We've all got to be ready ..today!..now would be good.. and help others get ready as well. There are no other prophecies of the Bible that need to take place before the Rapture happens..and then the Second Advent. Bam! For every prophecy in the Bible concerning Christ’s first advent, there are 8 which look forward to His second! Christian, do you have any friends, fellow students, family members.. or perhaps coworkers who don't know that God loves them.. who have not yet turned and been born again spiritually?
If you have a few moments, prayerfully meditate upon these verses...

Thank You Lord for another day to pray and obey, but like every day... kinda need Your help with all that.
God came through for us yesterday - we can trust Him again today. You remember how the children of Israel in the wilderness somehow caught memory loss issues ...regarding the mighty grace of God. He hadn't let em down once. They had Egyptian spicy cuisine on their minds (Ex. 16:2-3) and got all grumpy n gripey about their water supply (17:2).
Man, I think I've done that before..like when the city gave me certain times when I could turn the sprinklers on and off. My bad!.. but there's really no time for spiritual amnesia today. There is indeed time to recall, to thank, and to give praise to the One who gave His all for you - the Person who is the Bread of life and freely gives living water. Feeling so grateful for how He's guided and provided and never even chided. Somethin' oughta be said! Somethin' oughta be thought about and done.

You might have attended a church for many years, but that doesn't make you right with God any more than if you were a police officer and went to Dunkin' Donuts weekly.
Why strive and STRIVE with people when you can simply abide? "If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place." ~Eckhart Tolle
— Kurt von Schleicher (@kurtwvs) August 22, 2014
1.) Admit you are a sinner in need of a Savior
2.) Recognize that Jesus is your Savior and died on the Cross for your sin
3.) Repent of your sin (admit it and quit it, turn from, change)
4.) Receive Christ into your life by simple faith
Did you pray and take that 4th step? Way cool! Now I encourage you build simple friendship with God. Sure, pray (talk to Him), read your Bible (hear from Him and learn), fellowship with growing believers, and go tell your friends about what Christ has done in your life. This stuff is so edifying! And.. go beyond being a believer and become Christ's disciple. Yes, allow Jesus to lead you step by step forwards and be your Lord daily. Sure, every disciple is a born again believer ..spiritually.. but not every believer is necessarily a true disciple ..even if they often attend church and claim to be.
"Either you will have harmony with God and friction with people, or you will have harmony with people and friction with God." ~ Greg Laurie
Too many people spend a lifetime striving as they try to fix and maintain all their relationships on the horizontal plane, but when a person simply pauses to biblically get right on the vertical plane with their most important Relationship ..then everything else on the horizontal plane just falls into place.
You can enjoy peace, joy, and order..yes harmony with God..instead of chaos, emptiness and frusteration apart from Him. Why miss out on peace with God and the peace of God? Why strive in the strength of your flesh (with people and circumstances beyond your control..) when you can abide in and walk in His Spirit? Listen, anything short of biblical discipleship, is settling for much less than what God really desires for each of us. He has more He wants to give you and your friends. Being an obedient disciple who embraces the Lord and Christian Essentials..this involves loving the Lord more than anyone or anything else. This is the very foundation of being a disciple. If you want to live your Christian life to its fullest ..want to have life in the Spirit more abundantly.. then love the Jesus of the Bible more than anyone or anything else. Trials will come and go, but He won't. He's here to stay. He is with you.

God loves us. Some men hate, and they really hate. Personally, I'm wishin' those haters in Isis ..Wasis.. but even more that they'd stop to repent like persecutor Saul turned Paul did. God has never hated sinners as a man hates..cuz He loves and saves sinners..like me.
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him." John 3:16-17
FYI: The cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were wicked towns. They were guilty of several different sins and it's very interesting to do a study on em all.. from the context of what these people actually did that hurt the Lord. Go for it. If you like, you can start by looking at Genesis 18:16-19:29, and Leviticus 18. They all were loved by God, but they chose to blow it before God in many areas, but foremost among them all was the serious sin of homosexuality. In that part of Leviticus, God gives clear directives not just for ritual purity, but commands to be observed by every Jew, and even every visitor. Living gay (in Homosexuality) according to God was wrong for the Jews, wrong for the gentiles who visited the Jews ("aliens") and it was even an abomination that defiled the land when practiced by pagans who inhabited Canaan long before the Jews came on in. It's a defiling sin - homosexuality is, regardless of which human practices it. That is from God. It has no place before God among any people, in any age, then or even now. If you are a Calvinist or are into hyper Calvinism and don't feel like evagelizing, please see my comments below.

There'll be times when God desires to use you in someone else's life; it may not be pretty or comfortable or completely unawkward. Small men might try to hinder, or lie, thwart, or even oppose you as you do what ya can, and you might never fully understand why..here. But the important thing is this—lost people need to see Christ and to clearly hear His Message!
Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Spend time sharin' the Message with those who are open to the truth, and simply pray for those who aren't.. yet. Choose to love all people.
Any of us.. who refuse to remain humble or open to what God has to say from His word.. simply lose out on such glorious beauty. But I say, Walk with meekness, with His church, and go fish with confidence. Yes, in the mountains, in the valleys, and in every stream of our society. Preach the word for decisions. Do if primarily for Him.
One meaningful warmhearted conversation across the table with a wise person about the gracious person and work of Jesus Christ ..is better than twenty years of conversations with ten closed-hearted, self-viewing-as genius type of fools.

God really cares about you, your family, and all your friends. He's SO not wantin' any to eat it in the wrong place. You know that, sure you do.
Jesus "said to his disciples, 'The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.'” (Matthew 9:37-38). So how can ya really know what it’s like to effectively present an accurate Gospel if you've never up close and personally experienced God’s love or even know what the Gospel is? None can. Listen..
Better than inviting the lost to your church, to your simulcasted concert, to your pastor, to a good website.. is inviting them to Christ.
— Kurt von Schleicher (@kurtwvs) August 8, 2014
Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I’m a sinner and need Your forgiveness. I can’t earn it. So as You give me true repentance now, I choose to appropriate it by faith. Yes, I repent and trust You completely. I believe that You died for my sins on the cross and I want to turn away from my sins for good.. forever! Jesus, I now invite You to come into my heart and life. Please forgive me and fill me with your Spirit. Make me into the kind of victorious fruit-bearing person that you want me to be. I want to love, and follow You as my Lord and Savior all my days. Thanks for making me born again! In Jesus’ name. Amen!

What is biblical evangelism? It is a good way of being that God approves of..yes, of living by the Book and telling the truth that lost people need to hear about most. An evangelistic way of living is simply sharing with others the Gospel with His integrity..as well as what God has done in your life to save you.
Monday, August 4, 2014
With all due respect.. me kinda thinks that God (with great sorrow in His heart just to watch).. is allowing the rockets of wicked Hamas terrorists to fly over there for a time.. cuz He still loves and wants them (as well as any lost Gentiles including Arabs who pause to muse over eternity and fulfilled prophecy) to repent, to recognize, and to turn and embrace their Biblical Messiah ...that they earlier rejected. His name is Jesus (Yeshua Ha-Mashiach). Do you know Christ in a personal way yet? You can right now!

Very few people choose to leap into a real hell of a future. No, they just toy around the edges of it long enough and fall into it.
Just do like Joseph did..and run! Go Joe, go! (Funny how he had a real prob hangin' onto coats) #SayNoToSpiritualCompromise #FleeYouthfulLusts
Friday, August 1, 2014
No, really. I do want to hear about your Jesus. But not right now, and where are those potent Altoid mints cuz your burnt-coffee-breath is killin', killin' killin' me!

"Go.. tell." Mark 5:19
Kurt von Schleicher
- I travel to speak, and gladly help others to travel on purpose! Let's plan! I also teach and regularly serve with Global Media Outreach. Authored a couple training books. Been privileged for almost for decades to do some speaking, missionary work in 21 nations and local church pastoring.. as a "Connector" if ya will—a vertical motivator. See about.me/kvs or www.linkedin.com/in/f4skurtWhy do I seek to relationally connect people up? It's for the purpose of living and behavioral alteration and global impact. Yup! Would ya like to check on my speaking availability? I'm here to challenge peeps, add value if I can and build em up. What do I believe? A great commitment to the Great Commandment and the Great Commission will make for a great church or person. Question for ya: Have you yet discovered that second only to experiencing the blessing, the glorious adventure, and great privilege of knowing / worshiping the Lord personally, is the JOY of making Christ known to others? You can today.You can, and even starting today! Yup, it's for every Christian, the Bible says, “Jesus called out to them, ‘Come, be my disciples, and I will show you how to fish for people!’” (Matthew 4:19). Remember how He encouraged Simon saying, “Don't be afraid! From now on you'll be fishing for people!" (Luke 5:10). Well, with grace, accuracy and joy, Christ wants to use you in this worldwide endeavor as well! Can you think of anything more important?
The U.S.A. has basically been in a state of perplexity for a while, because we’ve relied too much on bankers, brokers, and right and left leaning bureaucrats. How is it in your country? We are still somewhat blessed, but technology hasn’t rescued us from the huge problems that we've created. It used to be: “In God we trust” and during times of uncertainty like these, I say we simply remember our roots and return to Him who gives peace.. and that we do this on His terms as found in the Bible.Our aim at F4S Evangelism is edification, education, equipping plus ..to help you and your friends first hook-up with: 1.) The Ultimate Fisher of people, 2.) With other people just like you.. who are really wanting to make a lasting difference on this planet for His Glory, and also with, 3.) Your God-given ministry and evangelistic purpose! Why? Here’s why.. on the horizontal plane there’s nothing better than Gospel ministry to invest your time, talent and treasures into! kurtwvons
