This serving the Lord
Bible verses path is based upon truth and trust. You will get to

LET'S GET AFTER IT ...
It's so exciting that you are here today, because you've just
discovered something that's about to change your life ... And the
lives of others! Do not think that just anyone could find this
secret place and even if someone cheated to enter, the secrets
shared within will not become visible in mind and heart to those who
were not called.
YOU ARE SPECIAL
BUT NEVER FORGET
THAT IT IS GOD ... IN YOU.
1 Corinthians 1:26-28
For ye see your calling,
brethren, how that not many wise
men after the flesh, not many mighty,
not many noble,
But God hath chosen the foolish
things of the world to confound the wise;
and God hath chosen the weak things
of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
And base things of the world, and
things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things
which are not, to bring to nought things that are ...
THE GLORY IS TO BE
Let me ask you a
couple of questions ...
What if you could change your life and find what your purpose was?
What if you could find and use awesome spiritual gifts that are within
What if you could use these spiritual gifts to change other people's
lives for the better?
How would you like to do that ... For God?
If the answer is ...
You have bee to ...
Do you believe in
? Do you think that things just
happen by luck or chance? Or do you believe that everything happens
for a reason? What if you were led to Christianity Oasis by the Holy
Spirit so that you would find this path because you have been
CALLED to get involved in this program, right now, at this very
time in your life, and God has a plan for you to do amazing things for
You have a great
opportunity before you.
Do you believe that
you can make a difference in the world today?
GOD DOES !!!
The Bible is clear
that God calls many to REPRESENT Him ...
But, the Bible also
says that few of those called are actually chosen to serve Him.
Know why few people
Because few CHOOSE to
They get all caught
up in the worldly things that are going on and CHOOSE that instead.
God made it clear in
the Bible that He would be calling His young people and putting His
Spirit in them and they would do GREAT things for Him.
And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will
pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and
your daughters shall
and your young men shall see visions, and your old men
shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens
I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall
God promised that He was going to choose young people to
represent Him. It is up to you as to what you will choose to do
with your calling.
God will pour out His Spirit on these young people and they will get
These powers are
called spiritual gifts!
Are you one of these sons and
daughters who God is calling to REPRESENT?
Most people in the
Bible, whether they were young or old ...
NEVER thought that THEY would be called.
BUT THEY WERE
And they did awesome
works by showing God's glory in their words and works.
With God, nothing is
Maybe you are saying,
"Wow, I am only a teen what could I possibly do" ...
Did you know that the prophet Jeremiah was just a child when God chose
him to be a
Check this out ...
(God told Jeremiah) Before I formed thee ... I ordained thee a
prophet unto the nations. Then said I, (Jeremiah) Ah, Lord GOD!
behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child. But the LORD
said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to
all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou
Did you catch that?
Before we were even born, God knew who He was going to call. He knew
who was to be the
next generation of Christian soldiers called to fight the good fight
of faith and to
REPRESENT. This world is at war with an invisible enemy called the
devil, who is out to capture as many souls as he possibly can. Just
take a look around you and you can see the devil's work in action ...
Gangs ... Drinking
... Drugs ... Cutting ... Sex ... And ...
IT'S ONLY GETTING WORSE
This invisible enemy likes to use anger, jealousy, greed, hate, fear,
lust, doubt, pride ... All kinds of ugly things that mankind has a
real tough time fighting against ... He is winning a lot of souls
FEW CHOOSE to fight ... Most just surrender and
follow the worldly trends.
My friend, it's your
duty as a Christian soldier not to surrender. It's also your job to
protect and defend others that are caught up in his web of lies. God
is counting on you.
Before we take on
such an important
together, it's important that we become
FRIENDSAs you know, friendship is based on
TRUTH, which builds
TRUST. So I will be sharing a lot of
TRUTH with you. We'll be talking about some very serious topics
while our friendship grows. One thing about TRUTH ... It's not
always what people want to hear, but a true friend knows that even
though the TRUTH may hurt sometimes, it's the only CHOICE
if you want a strong friendship.
Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy
In other words, a
true friend will always tell the TRUTH, even though it may hurt.
Lies and pity (kisses) may make you feel better, but they will hurt
worse than the TRUTH did in the end.
This is the first
TRUTH that I share with you as your new friend ...
You MUST increase
Faith CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS.
Verily I say unto you, IF ye have Faith as a grain of mustard
seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder
place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible
Cool huh? Jesus is
saying that if you have even a little
YOU could say to
a mountain, move from here to over there, and it would. In other
words, He is saying that with FAITH ... Nothing is impossible. Which
ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE
Think about what Jesus just promised for a sec ...
IF WE HAVE
FAITH WE CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS
But ... What is faith?
Faith ... Means to BELIEVE something with all your mind and heart.
Sooooooo, Jesus is
saying that if we BELIEVE, we can make anything happen.
BELIEF is like a flowing river. Picture a flowing river in your mind.
Imagine throwing a leaf into that flowing river, what is going to
happen? You guessed it, the leaf will flow the same way the river is
flowing. It doesn't matter what you throw into the river of
... It flows the same way. Whether your
BELIEFS are good, bad, happy
or sad ...
They will come to life with ... BELIEF.
So what you BELIEVE
... You RECEIVE.
And all things, whatsoever
ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
Lots of people need
our help out there, and the world is a big place.
Neither one of us can do this alone, but my friend, as a
We can do it TOGETHER.
"If two of you shall agree on earth as touching any
thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them
of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are
gathered in my name, there I am in the midst of them."
So, let's see if we
understand this correctly.
JESUS promised ... If you and other Christians agree, we can ask
ANYTHING in His name, and it will be done. It sounds like a
MIRACLE, doesn’t it?
My new friend ... Are you ready for God to work some miracles through
By taking part in
this program, you're making a CHOICE. You're taking a leap of faith.
Know what that is? That's when you something that could only happen ...
With faith. Are you a tiny bit scared? That feeling isn't fear.
You're supposed to feel that. Why? Because you can't do it alone ...
That means you MUST
on JESUS to help you! If you ever feel like you've got it all under
control and you can conquer anything alone ... That's when you've
let go of God's hand. Learn the TRUTH about that feeling, it's not
fear, it's called , and God is waiting for you to reach for His
hand and become
upon His Holy Spirit.
Choice is something
that God gives to each of us. It's called FREE WILL. We are
do whatever we
Your CHOICE to be a Christian is the most important
CHOICE of your life.
You REPRESENT Christ.
As your friend, I'll tell you the TRUTH ... Most people won't agree
with the CHOICE that you have made to REPRESENT Christ. Being
His name. You ARE different, because the world is heading in a
different direction than you are, and they WILL try over and over to
tell you that EVERYBODY is doing this, or EVERYBODY is doing that,
so THEIR way must be right, and you must be wrong. My friend, you're
not EVERYBODY else. And you're not wrong.
You're different ...
You're special ... You are called.
You don't follow all
the other sheep to the slaughter, so to speak. You're not afraid of
the responsibility it takes to lead a
life. You have a stronger
than most people and you
recognize what's right and wrong much easier than EVERYBODY else
because you CHOOSE to. You want to live THE WAY that Jesus taught.
I am THE WAY, the
TRUTH, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
So ... What's this
program all about? It's about building your Christian character.
It's about gaining wisdom and knowledge that will
your faith. It's about strengthening your armor against the enemy, the
devil. It's about living THE WAY, THE TRUTH, and THE LIFE, that is
taught to us by our Savior Jesus Christ, and sharing the light of
what you learn with others, who will in turn share it with still
others. This program is about building an army of Christian soldiers
for God, to defend the faith and REPRESENT in a world that is
quickly becoming faithless. It's about reaching out to other people
and making a difference in their lives, for the glory of GOD!
Have you ever heard
of the ripple effect? It's where you throw a stone into the water,
which causes a ripple, which causes more ripples, which causes more
and more and more, spreading out wider and wider and wider, until
the whole pool is filled with ripples! YOU can be a stone, and make
it happen ... For GOD! You'll change a few lives, and they'll each
change a few, and so on and so on ... Here is a picture that will give
you an idea of this ripple effect.
choosing to REPRESENT Christ, you choose to share Jesus'
life, through you, with others, because you're ONE with Him. People
see Him in you ... In the things you do, the way you act, the way
you talk, the way you live ... YOUR words and deeds are a
Jesus told us that it's our
duty, it's our job to be doing this as you'll find out in just a
moment. There's a story which
Jesus told, that I'd like to share with you. After the story, we'll
talk about the message that's in it.
THE PARABLE OF THE TALENTS
For the kingdom of heaven is as a man traveling into a far
country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them
his goods. And unto one he gave five talents (a certain amount
of money), to another two, and to another one; to every man
according to his several ability; and straightway took his
journey. Then he that had received the five talents went and
traded with the same, and made them other five talents. And
likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. But
he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid
his lord's money. After a long time the lord of those servants
cometh, and reckoneth with them. And so he that had received
five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord,
thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained
beside them five talents more. His lord said unto him, Well
done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful
over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things:
enter thou into the joy of thy lord. He also that had received
two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two
talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.
His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant;
thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee
ruler over many things:
enter thou into the joy of thy lord. Then he which had received
the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an
hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where
thou hast not strawed: And I was afraid, and went and hid thy
talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine. His lord
answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant,
thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I
have not strawed: Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money
to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received
mine own with usury. Take therefore the talent from him, and
give it unto him which hath ten talents. For unto every one that
hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him
that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. And
cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall
be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
WOW ... Okay now I
know that it may be a little hard to understand what Jesus was saying
but that was His INTENT.
He spoke in parables. Parables are short
stories that Jesus used to show us how we should live our lives. We
can substitute some things in this parable so we can see the example
of how we should live our lives as Christians.
In this parable ...
WE are the servants of the Lord. The talents in this story represent
money BUT Jesus was using it to symbolize the spiritual gifts
given to us by God to
REPRESENT Him. If we
use those gifts to HELP HIS LOST CHILDREN
find TRUTH we are blessed with more
rewards. But if we choose not to use these gifts as to glorify Him
and bring in His sheep, we lose all that He gave us.
We have an exciting
adventure ahead of us.As you build your faith, your
your as a Christian, you're really taking your
talents, and glorifying the Lord. Others will see the results in your
life and as you share your faith with them, you are leading people to
the Lord. You'll find that He will begin putting you in situations
where others need you to help them grow in their faith, and then my
you REPRESENT, will bless you
You're also beginning a lifestyle that will lead you through a happy
life on earth, and life everlasting. These aren't just pretty words
... They're TRUTH!
Doing nothing is also
a choice. Think about that.
You have an
advantage, being a young person. That's because as people get older,
they get set in their ways and it's difficult for them to change
their beliefs and habits even if they're wrong. As the saying goes,
'It's hard for a leopard to change it's spots.' But you ... Being a
young person, you have the opportunity to paint your spots wherever
you like, or you can choose stripes or anything you choose. If you
choose TRUTH from the beginning, just think of all the heartache you
save yourself from.
As I said before, my
friend, many people will want to
you, because they
BELIEVE that it's not cool to
be a Christian. I have to ask, what do they believe IS cool? My bet
is that what they believe to be cool, aren't the things Jesus would
do. Many people may be jealous, because they don't have the
REPRESENT. To REPRESENT means being strong.
Just ask yourself when people disagree with your choice ... Do I
want to please people, or do I want to please God? It's not the
popular thing to do. It's different. You're different. They may
reject you. Don't give in. Jesus said:
It's a shame game.
Don't be ashamed to
stand up for your beliefs.
Whosoever therefore shall
confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father
which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him
will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
In other words, the
way you REPRESENT Christ, is the way He will REPRESENT
you, before God! Stand up for Him and He will stand up for you.
You'll be learning a
lot of new words as we study together. I'll be talking to you like
an adult, because I think it's important that we have
respect for one another. many of the
words you read may not be in your vocabulary yet but they are about
to be. If there's a word that you don't understand, I trust you'll
look it up in the dictionary. Misunderstanding one word, can
sometimes make a huge difference in understanding everything after
Words that sound
strange, or 'religious' to you when we begin, will become a part of
your by the time we're finished.
You'll be reading a lot of Bible verses and some may be difficult to
understand, but I'll be explaining what they mean if they're
complicated. Soon you'll begin to see the awesome wisdom of the
Bible, which is God's letter of love to us, His children.
The times we live in
are changing rapidly. Unfortunately, as technology is increasing, so
is the wickedness and evil in the world. Who will be the leaders of
the future? Who will REPRESENT? The answer is ... YOU! ...
Jesus is counting on
YOU to carry on His light in the world. The future is in YOUR hands.
Each day we will be
taking ONE step at a time to reaching this new goal.
I know it’ll be hard
to resist going on to the next step once you begin, but if your “cup
runneth over” where does all that TRUTH go that doesn’t fit into
You should only digest so much at a time, and that way, nothing is
wasted and you get the benefits of every ounce of TRUTH. If you
take it slow, all that you will be learning will have a chance to
absorb into your mind and your spirit will react when you take each
step ONE DAY AT A TIME to complete this program.
Taking in too much at one time, you run the risk of forgetting some of
it and not allowing the natural instincts and habits to establish
these new BELIEFS.
Another benefit of
ONE STEP AT A TIME is that it naturally makes you want to
return each day, because it’s truly a very exciting program.
