                                           THE TRUE VINE EVANGELISM PROGRAM 

                                                  The True Vine Evangelism Program

                                         Chapter Four: Jesus came to the earth


In the last chapter we talked about the condition of the world and
man’s heart condition. It was for this reason that Jesus came. Many
have said that Jesus came to show us the way and it is true, but the
Bible tells us “Jesus came to seek and to save the lost.” Luke 19:10


When Jesus came from heaven to the earth he came spreading God’s
grace and truth. His words turned the world upside down with His
message. What was known to be right and the way men were being
taught to live their lives suddenly changed from keeping the law as
best as they could unto recognizing and living under God’s grace and
truth. When Jesus came he brought grace and truth a new message.
He didn’t come to take away the law but to fulfill it by bringing the
spiritual law of grace and truth. As an Evangelist or messenger you
have been entrusted with this great truth, God’s message of grace
and truth unto the world. Just as Jesus turned the world upside down
with this message and likewise so will you when it is properly
forwarded to the world. Right now the world rarely operates with
grace unto his fellow man and truth is seldom the topic. This week we
will study the necessity of grace and truth and how Jesus came with
this message and now has called us to preach this same message
also.

People who are crucified with Christ have three
distinct marks:
1. they are facing only one direction,
2. they can never turn back, and
3. they no longer have plans of their own.
--A.W. Tozer


Read Isaiah 61:1-11


The Good News of Salvation
1 “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, Because the LORD has anointed Me to
preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are
bound;
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, And the day of vengeance of our
God; To comfort all who mourn,
3 To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy
for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the LORD, that He
may be glorified.”
4 And they shall rebuild the old ruins, They shall raise up the former
desolations, And they shall repair the ruined cities,The desolations of many
generations.
5 Strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, And the sons of the foreigner Shall be
your plowmen and your vinedressers.
6 But you shall be named the priests of the LORD, They shall call you the servants
of our God.
You shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, And in their glory you shall boast.
7 Instead of your shame you shall have double honor, And instead of confusion
they shall rejoice in their portion.
Therefore in their land they shall possess double; Everlasting joy shall be theirs.
8 “ For I, the LORD, love justice; I hate robbery for burnt offering; I will direct their
work in truth,
And will make with them an everlasting covenant.
9 Their descendants shall be known among the Gentiles, And their offspring among
the people.
All who see them shall acknowledge them, That they are the posterity whom the
LORD has blessed.”
10 I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, My soul shall be joyful in my God; For He has
clothed me with the garments of salvation,
He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself
with ornaments, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11 For as the earth brings forth its bud, As the garden causes the things that are
sown in it to spring forth, So the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to
spring forth before all the nations.

Read Mathew 25:31-46
31 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then
He will sit on the throne of His glory.
32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from
another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.
33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My
Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I
was a stranger and you took Me in;
36 I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison
and you came to Me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry
and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?
38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You?
39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’
40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as
you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
41 “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed,
into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no
drink;
43 I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me,
sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’
44 “Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or
thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?

45 Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’
46 And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into
eternal life.”

Read 1Thessalonians 5:1-11

The Day of the Lord
1 But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I
should write to you.


TIDINGS TO THE POOR
2 For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in
the night.
3 For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon
them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.
4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a
thief.
5 You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of
darkness.
6 Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.
7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night.
8 But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and
love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.
9 For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord
Jesus Christ,
10 who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with
Him.
11 Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.

Read 2Thessalonians 2:1-17
The Great Apostasy
1 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering
together to Him, we ask you,
2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter,
as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come.
3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the
falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,
4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped,
so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
5 Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things?
6 And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time.
7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will
do so until He is taken out of the way.
8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the
breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.
9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all
power, signs, and lying wonders,
10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did
not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe
the lie,
12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure
in unrighteousness.

Stand Fast
13 But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the
Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through
sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth,
14 to which He called you by our gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord
Jesus Christ.
15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught,
whether by word or our epistle.
16 Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has loved
us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace,
17 comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work.

"And I am sure that, when I come unto you, I shall come in the fullness of the
blessing of the Gospel of Christ." Romans 15:29


Let me ask you today, do you believe that you have the fullness of the blessings of
the Gospel? Are you having all that you can contain, completely satisfied, and
mature in understanding? Paul assured the Corinthians that they haven't received
it all yet and that the next time he was to visit them he will have so much more to
give them. We ought to not think that we have it all, we can never stop learning,
and maturity rest upon the acceptance that we haven't arrived yet and have still
so much more to learn. 

Do you need help today?

Lift up your hands to the Lord in supplication and in expectation, and soon you will lift up your hands
in jubilation and celebration. --Warren W. Wiersbe


The fullness of the blessings of the Gospel will come step by step, line upon line, and precept upon precept, everyday growing inunderstanding. I have shared with some and shortly after they listened, or after
they followed Jesus a little, they have believed that they had enough, it was all
that they need and now they are full, but they are missing so much!

God is a deep ocean of beautiful understandings, understandings that require us
to go beyond the surface, and to go deeper with Him to be a part of this fullness.
He will not withhold from us when we desire to grow closer. Today God wants to
bring you closer to the fullness of the blessings of the Gospel and he’s asking us,
will we go deeper with Him?

Read 1John 3:1-5
1 Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be
called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not
know Him. 2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed
what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for
we shall see Him as He is. 3 And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies
himself, just as He is pure.

Sin and the Child of God
4 Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.
5 And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is
no sin.

Read Revelation 21:1-27

All Things Made New
1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth
had passed away. Also there was no more sea.
2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from
God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is
with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself
will be with them and be their God.
4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death,
nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have
passed away.”
5 Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said
to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
6 And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and
the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.
7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be
My son.
8 But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral,
sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with
fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”


The New Jerusalem
9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last
plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, “Come, I will show you the bride,
the Lamb’s wife.”
10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed
me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper
stone, clear as crystal.
12 Also she had a great and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the
gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of
the children of Israel:
13 three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and
three gates on the west.
14 Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names
of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
15 And he who talked with me had a gold reed to measure the city, its gates, and
its wall.
16 The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he
measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs. Its length, breadth,
and height are equal.
17 Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the
measure of a man, that is, of an angel.
18 The construction of its wall was of jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear
glass.
19 The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all kinds of precious
stones: the first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony,
the fourth emerald,
20 the fifth sardonyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the
ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst.
21 The twelve gates were twelve pearls: each individual gate was of one pearl. And
the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.
