Heal The Land Ministries Statement Of Purpose

Posted by Job on March 15, 2007

This ministry has two purposes. The first is to win new souls for Christ.  To all who are ignorant of the true message of Jesus Christ, to all who wish to be saved but don’t know how to be, to all who are feeling frightened, poorly adjusted, or insecure, welcome! I do not care about your race, sex, class, religion, background, culture, or personal history, because my God does not care. I am here to tell you today that salvation is for you, right here, right now.  You may mutter to yourself how simple, corny and unsophisticated it sounds, about how you have heard it so many times but nothing ever changes. How many times have you heard that 2 + 2 equals 4? How simple, corny, and unsophisticated is that to all but theoretical mathematicians? But that doesn’t make it any less true. Don’t believe me, just go get two apples, two oranges, put them together, and see what you get, and if it gets too complicated for you go to any preschool, find any one of the future Einsteins for Christ there and receive a demonstration. Salvation is easy! All you have to do is tell God that you are sorry for everything wrong that you have ever done, accept Jesus as the son of God who was born of a virgin, died for those very same sins, rose again from the dead, and ascended into heaven. That is all. Why? Because telling God that you are sorry for your sins is submission to his singular authority over your life. Belief in the Virgin Birth is belief that God can do anything and that his word is true. Belief that God’s own Son died for our sins is belief that sin – which is rebellion against God – can only lead to separation from God – which is death – no matter who you are. Belief that Jesus rose again from the dead is belief that God can and will overcome sin and death for whomever will ask. Belief that Jesus ascended into heaven and is now sitting on the right hand of the Father is belief that Jesus is God himself who came to the Earth in the form of a man in order to conquer the sins of whoever will receive him out of his love for us, and that all who allow God to conquer sin and death on our behalf will join him in heaven one day. The hard part is what happens AFTER you get saved: how you must turn your belief into knowledge, your knowledge into faith, your faith into obedience, and your obedience into submission. You must not only become without spot before God – which is only possible if God himself does it after you seek it from him – but you must maintain that state until he comes for you. And that brings us to the second part of this ministry. Upon accepting Jesus into your life, you become part of the TRUE church that Jesus is coming back for; the Body Of Christ that will inhabit the Bride of the Lamb, which is New Jerusalem, which is Heaven.  The church has become quite competent at publicizing itself and increasing its size. While that may seem good, the truth is that such endeavors often come at the expense of actually doing the work that God commanded us to. The modern church has two factions. One is more concerned with appearing righteous than being righteous, making them no different from the scribes, Pharisees, and Sadducees that Jesus exposed. The other faction is doing its level best to make peace with, accommodate, and even incorporate within itself the world and all its wickedness, no different from how the children of

Israel began sacrificing and burning incense to other gods in God’s own temples, tabernacles, and synagogues. The vast majority of today’s churches are either in one camp, the other, or to some degree have taken on both. Simply put, today’s church isn’t doing its job, which is obeying the commandments of our God. We have gone off to pursue our own desires and in doing so have become more wicked than many who have never set foot in a church. For that reason God is about to judge the church, and when that judgment comes it will be better to be outside the church than to be a sinner in it! That is completely opposite from the mentality that most church attendees have … they believe that because they attend church, do good works, and have the appearance of virtue they will “earn” another chance. But do not be fooled, and do not be among them. Jesus said at various points in the Bible – see Matthew 11 for instance – that rank sinners will be shown more mercy on the Day of Judgment than will wicked churchgoers, because unlike “the world” the latter knew better, had every chance to plead for God to make them right, and still did not because they loved themselves more than God.After God finishes pouring out his wrath upon and scattering the church, he will, as he always did in the Bible and throughout history, gather together a remnant of his true dedicated believers and servants to rebuild the congregation so that once again the church will begin to do his will and to make way for the coming of the Lord. I pray that I will allow God to use me in this ministry and all those who have similar ministries, such that all who receive this and similar teachings will be spared God’s wrath, be part of God’s remnant, and do his will. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
