Why The Gospel HAD To Be Organic

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." Romans 1:16

I recently posted that the book The Organic Gospel is now available, both in print and in eBook format.  I urge you again to get and share a copy of this book.

Friends, this is not about mere book promotion, but about getting into the hands of those who love God and those who need God (and that should be everyone) a message that cuts through the deceptions of religion and points you to the simplicity of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The devil has done a wonderful job of blinding the minds of men to God's plan of salvation (even those in church) because he aims to pervert the image of God in man.  As long as he can keep man from being born again  - being supernaturally and organically transformed by the Spirit of God to be a new creature - he can keep man bound and alienated from God (Colossians 1:21). Yet, if we can present to people the truths of the Gospel, then there will be a clear call upon their hearts to make a choice. While they may not choose the True & Living way, it will no longer be due to ignorance.

God is not after changing your behavior (your good works or your bad); He is after changing who you are at the core.  He desires to change the very lifetype or nature you possess, from being one that is enslaved by sin to being one made in the image of His Son, Jesus Christ.  Due to sin, we were all born by nature to be children of wrath (Ephesians 2:3-6).  The answer for salvation then lies in killing that fallen nature so as to be given a new nature in Christ.  This is the liberty we experience in Christ Jesus; no more trying, no more striving, just being who God has created us to be.

Please understand the times we are in and the spiritual war being fought over the souls of men (Revelation 18:8-13).  This is all about saving souls.  I am willing to lay down my life for the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Are you?  This has to become personal.  It has to become your personal charge to fulfill the calling of the Lord God Almighty upon your life.  Believe me, anything wrong with you (spiritually or physically) will be worked out by Him as you go forward in His name.  He will perfect that which pertains to you as you give your life and body back to Him for His use.

Have you enlisted in the army of God?  Then it is time to take your place on the battlefield.  It is time to take the true Gospel around the world.  Stop arguing about doctrine or sitting idly by watching the world spin into madness.  Make it your mission to save souls; on the job, in the market, on the streets, in your home...  Don't turn to religious works, but pray that God will give you eyes to see and ears to hear so that you are ever available to Him to be a witness to the lost.  As you do, I know that The Organic Gospel will prove to be a valuable part of your arsenal...such is why the book was written.

"Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand

Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul." Ezekiel 3:17-21
