THE TRUE VINE EVANGELISM PROGRAM

Chapter One: God's Message To The World

 

Let's start by approaching the definition of Evangelism. Evangelism in simple terms is preaching the good news of God or the telling of the message that God has sent unto the world. This definition leads us to ask: What is God's message to the world? Why does God even desire to give a message to us? Consider the times we are living in. Is God able to relate to his people and stay current with today's times? Is his

message still valid?

 

God has given a message and it has always been unchanging. The Bible tells us in the Hebrew's 13:8 Jesus is the same yesterday, and today, and forever, and that means his message is the same also. He is never changing, so does that mean that his message that he has given to the world some 2000 years ago is still the same and can be as relevant today as it always was? Yes! His message is talking to us in today’s terms with the understanding of how the world is today, in fact the Bible has prophesied of the events that we are dealing with right now. God's message is still the same: "For God so loved the world that he sent his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16

 

This is just one of the many messages that God has given unto the

world! In this chapter we will begin by taking a look at God's message

to the world.

 

Read John 1:1-34

1. "In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God.

2. "The same was in the beginning with God."

3. "All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made."

4. "In him was life; and the life was the light of men."

5. "And the light shineth in the darkness and the darkness comprehendeth it not."

6. "There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

7. "The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe."

8. "He was not that Light, but he was sent to bear witness to that light,"

9. "That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world."

10. "He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not."

11. "He came unto his own, and his own received him not."

12. "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:"

13. "Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God."

14. "And the word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth."

15. "John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me."

16. "And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace."

17. "For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ."

18. "No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the

bosom of the Father, he hath declared him."

19. "And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?"

 

“Do all the good you can, in all the ways

you can, to all the souls you can, in every

place you can, at all the times you can,

with all the zeal you can, as long as ever

you can” John Wesley

 

20. "And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ."

21. "And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elijah? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, no."

22. "Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?"

23. "He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Isaiah."

24. "And they which were sent were of the Pharisees."

25. "And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elijah, neither that prophet?"

26. "John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standing one among you, whom ye know not;"

27. "He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoes latchet I am not worthy to unloose."

28. "These things were done in Bethebara beyond Jordan, where John was Baptizing."

29. "The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb

of God, which taketh away the sin of the world."

30. "This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me."

31. "And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water."

32. "And John bare record, saying, I saw the spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him."

33. "And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he that baptizest with the Holy Ghost."

34. "And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God."

"Is anything to hard for the Lord? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son." Genesis 18:14 God typically doesn't ask us too many questions, but every once in a while he does, like “who do you say that I am?", regarding Jesus and who we say he is, or "Where art thou?" after Adam and Eve sinned and was found trying to hide from God, but here we see God asking one of those few asked questions, "Is anything to hard for the Lord?" Well is there? There are for sure things that are too hard for man, such as World Peace or knowing the time that Jesus will return or even how we can be more perfect, these things are impossible to man, but to God all is possible. THERE IS NOTHING TOO HARD FOR THE LORD!! Has he said it? Will he not do it? All of his promises are yes and Amen! God can and will do as he says!

 

Read John 3:1-21

1 Now there was a Pharisee, a man named Nicodemus who was a member of the Jewish ruling council.

2 He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the signs you are doing if God were not with him.”

3 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”

4 “How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!”

5 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.

 

JESUS

 

6 Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.

7 You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’

8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”

9 “How can this be?” Nicodemus asked.

10 “You are Israel’s teacher,” said Jesus, “and do you not understand these things?

11 Very truly I tell you, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have

seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony.

12 I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things?

13 No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man.

14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up,

15 that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.”

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.

20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed.

21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.

Read John 6:25-59

25 And when they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, “Rabbi, when did You come here?”

26 Jesus answered them and said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled.

27 Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him.”

28 Then they said to Him, “What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?”

29 Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent.”

30 Therefore they said to Him, “What sign will You perform then, that we may see it and believe You? What work will You do?

31 Our fathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’”

32 Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread from heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven.

33 For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”

34 Then they said to Him, “Lord, give us this bread always.”

35 And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.

36 But I said to you that you have seen Me and yet do not believe.

37 All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.

38 For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.

39 This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day.

 

LOVES

 

40 And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.” Rejected by His Own

41 The Jews then complained about Him, because He said, “I am the bread which came down from heaven.”

42 And they said, “Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that He says, ‘I have come down from heaven’?”

43 Jesus therefore answered and said to them, “Do not murmur among yourselves.

44 No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.

45 It is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall all be taught by God.’ Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me.

46 Not that anyone has seen the Father, except He who is from God; He has seen the Father.

47 Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life.

48 I am the bread of life.

49 Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead.

50 This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die.

51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”

52 The Jews therefore quarreled among themselves, saying, “How can this Man give us His flesh to eat?”

53 Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you.

54 Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.

55 For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.

56 He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.

57 As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds

on Me will live because of Me.

58 This is the bread which came down from heaven—not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever.”

59 These things He said in the synagogue as He taught in Capernaum.

Read John 8:31-47

31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.

32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

33 They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, ‘You will be made free’?”

34 Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.

35 And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever.

36 Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. Abraham’s Seed and Satan’s

37 “I know that you are Abraham’s descendants, but you seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you.

 

“Suppose you could gain everything

in the whole world, and lost your

soul. Was it worth it?” Billy Graham

YOU

 

38 I speak what I have seen with My Father, and you do what you have seen with your father.”

39 They answered and said to Him, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would do the works of Abraham.

40 But now you seek to kill Me, a Man who has told you the truth which I heard from God. Abraham did not do this.

41 You do the deeds of your father.” Then they said to Him, “We were not born of fornication; we have one Father— God.”

42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me.

43 Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word.

44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me.

46 Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me?

47 He who is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God.”

Read John 10:1-18

1 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

2 But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

3 To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.

4 And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice.

5 Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.”

6 Jesus used this illustration, but they did not understand the things which He spoke to them. Jesus the Good Shepherd

7 Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.

8 All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.

9 I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out

and find pasture.

10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come

that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.

 

FOREVER

 

12 But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them.

13 The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep.

14 I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own.

15 As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.

16 And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd.

17 “Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again.

18 No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.”
