Video depicting ‘One lady says she’s ready for hell, another weeps & responds to the Gospel, & much more (2 Cor 4:1-6 being demonstrated before your eyes)’
As you’ll see, one heckler says she’s ready for hell, as she continued to mock the message (Satan blinded her eyes). Then another lady begins to weep, and she responds to the Gospel call. One man curses the message. Then an awestruck man humbles himself. Then another man is encouraged by the Lord. Then more professing Christians rejoice in the preaching of His glorious Gospel, as the Lord edifies them.
I have a few Facebook
friends that have wrongfully told me many times in comment, “You’re casting
your pearls before the swine!” What an unloving unwise thing to say, especially
since they were not there. I’m glad I listened to the Lord (via His Scriptures),
as well as ‘old dead men’ like George Whitefield. In this video you will see 2
Corinthians 4:1-6 being demonstrated before your own eyes.
It says in 2
Corinthians 4:1-6, ‘Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we received
mercy, we do not lose heart, 2 but
we have renounced the things hidden
because of shame, not walking in
craftiness or adulterating the word of God, but by the manifestation of
truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. 3 And
even if our gospel is veiled, it is
veiled to those who are perishing, 4 in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving
so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who
is the image of God. 5 For we do not
preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your
bond-servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our
hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of
Verse 1, I
did not “lose heart” as so many Facebook friends attempt to cause others to do,
instead I pressed-on.
Verse 2, I
“renounced things” while refraining from walking in craftiness, or adulterating
the word of God. I used no postmodern gimmicks, & the Gospel was not watered
Verse 3, the
Gospel was ‘veiled’ to those whom God decreed it to be.
Satan blinded the eyes of some. As Gods will is accomplished, only God’s elect
will be enlightened and/or respond to the Gospel call.
Verse 5, I
preached Christ, and I compelled them to respond.
Verse 6, I was being “a light,” and His Light of knowledge was given, as God foreknew, and foreordained. Sadly today many professing Christians do not understand what it means to be “light.”
A side note: Too many professing Christians have a low view (or no view) of Heralds. But Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones understood this Biblical calling ~
“If I am asked which sermons I wrote, I have already said that I used to divide my ministry, as I still do, into edification of the saints in the morning and a more evangelistic sermon in the evening. Well, my practice was to write my evangelistic sermon. I did so because I felt that in speaking to the saints, to the believers, one could feel more relaxed. There, one was speaking in the realm of the family. In other words, I believe that one should be unusually careful in evangelistic sermons. That is why the idea that a fellow who is merely gifted with a certain amount of glibness of speech and self-confidence, not to say cheek, can make an evangelist is all wrong. The greatest men should always be the evangelists, and generally have been; and the idea that Tom, Dick and Harry can be put up to speak on a street corner, but you must have a great preacher in a pulpit in a church is, to me, the reversing of the right order. It is when addressing the unbelieving world that we need to be most careful; and therefore I used to write my evangelistic sermon and not the other.”
