HOW TO GUIDE "ARE YOU READY?" EVANGELISTIC EVENT
EVANGELISTIC EVENT GUIDE ?
By Paul McGuire
“Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” KJV Mathew 9:37-38
“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise. “ Proverbs 11:30 KJV
While producing the “ARE YOU READY?” 3- DVD Series, the Lord impressed upon me that if I would go to His people and ask them that many thousands would be obedient to the Holy Spirit and used the DVDs as an evangelistic tool.
Ordinary people in their homes, with the help of Christian brothers and sisters, could prayerfully invite their friends and family into their home once a week for three weeks in a row to have coffee, tea, snacks, and watch one of the DVDs each week. Pastors with a burden for souls would invite people from their community who might not normally come to church once a week.
A group or family can watch the DVD. An entire church can watch the DVD.
Each DVD covers a different topic. They are designed to be fast moving, interesting, and talk about Bible prophecy in the light of current events. The meetings should be low-key, welcoming, and both Christians and non-Christians should be invited. All over the world people are coming to Christ through watching the “Are You Ready?” DVDs. Backslidden believers are being convicted by the Holy Spirit to repent and come back to Christ.
Each DVD covers different subject matter that is up to the minute and relevant for today with an explanation of Bible prophecy and a strong call to receive Jesus Christ. The 3-DVDs are as follows:
“Are You Ready for the Coming One World Government?” DVD 1
“Are You Ready for the Coming One World Economic System?” DVD 2
“Are You Ready for the Coming One World Religion?” DVD 3
All 3 DVD’s are approximately one hour long in length and they are designed to be shown in the numerical order that they are labeled. Very rarely, one or more of the DVD’s may not play on your computer or DVD player. That is because your player or computer, although new, is using some old software technology. 99.9% of the time if you try playing it on a different or newer brand of DVD player, or computer, it will play just fine. We suggest you test all 3 DVD’s on the computer or DVD player that you intend to use before you show it!
Whenever someone tells us for example, DVD #3 does not play on my machine, almost 100% of the time it plays perfectly on another machine. So this should not be a problem.
In addition, we have prepared a list of questions for you to ask the group that is designed to get them to think and eventually make a decision for Christ. We suggest that each meeting last no more than two hours total and no more! The first 30 minutes should be to welcome people, serve beverages, and snacks. Pray and then promptly begin showing the first DVD. Make sure you have tested everything beforehand so there are no surprises! People will not have patience for watching someone fumbling on a machine and trying to get it to play. Test it, have the volume set, and play it!
Also, there are some DVD players out there and computers, that may be knew, but they are using old technology in their DVD players. Occasionally, people will complain that the DVD will not play on their machine. 99.9% of the time, when we test their DVD, it plays fine on most equipment. So make sure you have tested all 3 DVDs beforehand. If you have a problem with a DVD, than try playing on another player or computer and it should play fine. Especially test DVD 3 which has some high resolution production values. If it does not play, than play it on another computer or player. Do not wait until the evening that you are showing the DVD. In fairness to the people you invite test it BEFORE the evening!
Basic rules to follow: Partner with other Christians in putting on an event. Make sure you pray about who to invite and make sure you have interceded for the showing. If you do that, seeds will be planted, people will receive Jesus Christ, and backslidden Christians will repent. Make sure you keep to the two hour maximum or people will not return. Also, after the event is over, get people excited about the next topic and get them to commit to invite others (as long as you are comfortable about who they invite). Remember, some people have no spiritual discernment! You do not want trouble makers and “know it all people” attempting to dominate the evening!
Show the video. Explain to people that you will play the whole video through. You are not to stop the video and discuss it. If someone is disruptive ask them politely to be quiet. This is why you need a team to work with you! People are to keep their comments to themselves, while the DVD is playing Explain up front that they do not have to agree with everything they see, nor are you asking them to. But, they must be polite! If they are not they will not be invited back. This must be said loving, gently, and firmly upfront.
When the video stops playing, people may make comments. As the host of the event, it is your job to get them back on track. Do not allow anyone to take control of your meeting. Unfortunately, there are some people who by nature will attempt to dominate and control the meeting or use it as a platform for their opinions. Stick to the questions on paper, this will keep people on task and move the meetings towards evangelism which is the main goal. The rules about sticking to the questions must be explained up front. It is important to be sensitive to people’s time. They have jobs, children and other responsibilities. If you allow people to side track your meeting and get off on theological debates, no matter how valid they may or may not be, this is not the intended purpose of the meeting. Simply explain that their question is important, but that you have to be sensitive to everyone else’s time. They are welcome to hold their own meeting, but not at your home or church. This is why you must pray and use careful spiritual discernment about whom you invite!
You can immediately go to the questions which you can pass out so everyone has a copy. Make sure you stay on topic and everyone should have a copy of the questions in front them. This keeps people on track. It is not a free for all! Stay on the questions!
The question time should be no more than fifteen minutes long. Brief and up beat! Thank the people for coming and expect them back the following week! You may sell the DVD series at the retail price or other Paul McGuire materials. Do not include books and literature by other authors and groups. This will create confusion and dilute the effect.
Here are the questions for DVD’s 1-3. Remember it is a brief discussion, no more than 15 minutes! If people want to be ministered to then let the other people go. Do not hold them captive. Let them go, thank them, and then you can pray for the people who specifically need ministry. That extra time should be devoted to ministry only and not to debating. Be aware of people who like to hear themselves talk and like to argue. They are welcome, but they must stick to the rules! Be loving, but firm and work with a team.
Basic rules to observe: Pastors of churches are used to doing this, but the same rules should apply at a home meeting. Ask your pastor if he would be willing to host the event at his church. Or ask the pastor to help officiate at your meeting. Make sure you and you pastor are in agreement on the nature of the ministry. If you are not, then pastoral involvement would be counterproductive. It is important to be in harmony with the people you select to minister with.
Paul McGuire Ministries is here to serve the local church, local pastor, prison ministries, evangelistic ministries, youth meetings, school ministries, men's meetings, women meetings and missionaries around the world. We are here to help you and believe the "Are You Ready?" 3-DVD series will bring people into your meetings that would normally come! Reports are coming in from around the world of people accepting Christ and backslidden Christians return to Christ! Warning this is not status quo evangelism. This is challenging, intelligent, Spirit-led, strong but compassionate, and cutting edge evangelism, where invitations are given to accept Christ.
The series is Biblically based and designed to win people to Christ and provoke lively discussion as a form of pre-evangelism. Underneath it all, Paul McGuire is an internationally known and serious Bible teacher. Paul is a Professor at College & Seminary, where he teaches Eschatology. Paul was a leading contributor on the Bible notes, commentary, and Hebrew and Greek definitions, from Genesis to Revelation, for one of the world’s leading Bibles. The Executive Editor was Dr. Jack Hanford. Paul McGuire’s ministry is personally endorsed by the most influential Christian leaders in the nation. If you pray, fast and let people know what the topics are people will come to Christ.
As a basic rule, we strongly suggest single women do not host meetings unless they have a team and they personally know the people they invite. This is very important for anyone. You do not ever want strangers coming into your home. Make sure you check your house before you lock your doors and if you have the slightest doubt about someone, DO NOT INVITE THEM! People who have just started attending the church or people you just met, should not be invited. You must be “as wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove!” Pray and think safety always. You might consider asking to use a room at your church.
Here are the questions. Remember 15 minutes maximum and stay on subject!
DVD 1 Are You Ready for the Coming One World Government?
Paul McGuire makes the point that many the problems we see in our world today are designed to move us towards a one world government. You do not have to agree with Paul, but according to widely published reports by the United Nations, George Soros, the Council on Foreign Relations, and other groups, the solution to mankind’s problems is a global government. That is the goal of the United Nations. Isn’t it interesting that in Revelation 13:1-7 we read about a world charismatic ruler called the Antichrist who is head of a global government? This was predicted over 2,000 years ago. The Bible predicts that in the last days a global government or Daniel’s vision of a Fourth Beast or Revived Roman Empire would appear.
1. Satan is the author of confusion. One of Satan’s names if Lucifer. Lucifer has led a rebellion with one third of the angels in an attempt to overthrow God’s throne and become God. Occult forces have always been an invisible hand in human history. The Apostle Paul said in Ephesians 6 that were are not fighting against flesh and blood, but principalities and powers and the dark unseen forces of wickedness in heavenly places.” Paul was referring to demonic powers. The Illuminati, which is a secret occult society formed in 1776, had a motto called “Order out of Chaos.” The idea is that radical social change, such as the creation of a one world government happens through crisis or chaos. Saul Alinsky the radical communist organizer believed in “manufactured crisis.” Alinsky dedicated his book “Rules for Radicals,” to the first radical Lucifer. How do you think crisis is used in our world to produce changes and what spiritual weapons has God given His people to deal with the chaos?
2. Billy Graham wants said, “That if God fails to judge America, that he will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.” That same truth holds true for every nation. Do you think that things like the hurricanes, tornadoes, economic problems, and 911 are being used by God to get our attention? Similar problems are happening to nations all over the world. The economic crisis in Europe, the nuclear meltdown in Japan and strange events happening in just about every nation on earth. Remember how polite everyone was after 911 and how many people started going back to church? It does not appear that we have learned our lesson, what do you think will happen to America or your nation in the future if we continue to turn our backs on God and mock His laws?
3. The German Christians and church in Nazi, Germany did not sense the entrance of powerful evil forces in their nation, even though the Nazi Party was an occult party first and a political party second. Despite the fact, that Adolph Hitler was a prominent disciple in the occult and all of his major leaders were in the occult, the church in Germany rallied to support Hitler and the church actually put him in power? Do you think the German Church and German Christians were reading their Bibles and using spiritual discernment? If they were truly reading the Word and walking with the Lord, don’t you think they would have discerned the evil forces. Do you think Christians in America and all over the world who have stopped truly reading their Bibles and walking with the Lord, are now open to the same spiritual deception the German Church was? Hitler believed in a New World Order and he was a prototype of the Antichrist. Do you think many Christians are ready to be deceived today?
4. Jesus Christ talked about the signs of the times in the last days. We are seeing those signs happen every day in our world. Are you personally ready for the return of the Lord? Have you asked God to forgive you of your sins and invited him into your heart to make you born-again? If you once walked with Christ but something caused you to walk away from Him, would you like to return to Jesus Christ tonight? Jesus loves you and will accept you as you are. All you have to do is tell Jesus Christ you are sorry and He will wash you with His blood. He is ready to welcome you back as a long lost son or daughter. Would you like to pray now?
DVD 2 Are You Ready for the Coming One World Economic System
1. In Revelation Chapter 13:16-18 the Bible talks about a coming cashless society, a one world economic system and microchip or biochip implant you will have to receive in order to buy or sell in the one world economic system. This could never have happened before in human history until now. Today we have the technology to plant a microchip in your right hand or forehead. The Bilderberg Group has already talked about that and every effort is being made to establish a New International Financial Order. If the time comes would you accept a microchip or biochip implant that the Bible refers to as the mark of the Beast?
2. George Soros, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the international banking system are all talking about converting to a world currency and a cashless society. Yet, the Bible talked about this over 2,000 years ago. Why do you think that the Apostle John, who the Holy Spirit used to write the Book of Revelation was able to see so clearly into the future before this technology was invented?
3. On the back of a U.S. dollar bill is a pyramid which is an occult symbol. Below the base of the pyramid are the words in Latin, “Novus Ordo Seclorum” or New Order of the Ages. The term actually means, “New World Order.” In the middle of the pyramid is known as the all-seeing eye of Lucifer. Those who have the all-seeing eye of Lucifer are the Illuminati or the “Illumined ones.” At the top of the pyramid is a tiny pyramid which refers to the elite, who are part of the Illuminati. They have received the Luciferian Illumination. In addition, these elite rule the masses below in a system much like the Pharaoh and the ancient Hebrew slaves. In Europe you see the building of the European Union designed, like an abstract Tower of Babel. The Tower of Babel was the first world government which God judged and destroyed. In front of the European Union building in Brussels is a statue of a woman riding the beast, which comes right out of the Book of Revelation. Do you think God is trying to tell us something with these blatant symbols?
4. Why do you think so many churches and governments do not allow teaching on Bible prophecy and the Book of Revelation? It’s like watching a movie or reading a novel and never finishing it. Obviously, it makes no sense! It is not rational. It is absurd and not logical to not teach on the end of the Bible which deals with prophecy and the Book of Revelation. Yet, hundreds of thousands of churches do just that. If the Bible is God’s Word, which it is, what right does anyone have to censor the very Words of God? The Bible talks about the great apostasy or falling away from the faith. Do you think not teaching on prophecy or revelation is evidence of apostasy and a falling away from the faith?
5. God has showed us all these things in advance through Bible prophecy and the Book of Revelation. The time will come soon when Jesus Christ will return to this earth. Are you ready for His return? Do you know how to be ready?
DVD 3 Are You Ready for the Coming One World Religion
In Revelation 13, the False Prophet or the Second Beast, is the same person who distributes the mark of the beast. The False Prophet is the head of the coming one world religion. One of the major tenets of the coming one world religion is that all faiths lead to God as long as you are sincere? Could that really be true? Does that principle work anywhere else in life? Do all roads lead to the same destination? Do all medicines cure the same disease? Obviously, sincerity is not the real issue here. Truth is! “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6 KJV
1. Jesus Christ was the only person who claimed to be God in human history who actually resurrected from the dead. What are you personally going to do with Christ’s words when He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6 KJV Are you going to come to the Father God through Jesus or make up your own way? Are you ready to come to the Father God through Jesus tonight? All it takes is a prayer by faith. Do you want to make that prayer now?
2. A lot of churches that are attempting to win the approval of men, by not telling you the truth, are hiding from you that the Truth sets you free. The Bible very clearly teaches that every man and woman is born into sin and that is why they die. The Coming One World Religion is based on spiritual deception and lies. Its teachers and prophets tell you that it does not matter which way you come to God, as long as you are sincere. You need to make a decision whether to believe God’s Words or theirs? Remember what Jesus Christ said about getting into heaven.
You do not want to put people on the spot, pressure them or manipulate them! But, remember it is the Holy Spirit that does the drawing to Himself, the Holy Spirit who convicts and the Holy Spirit who saves. Allow time for the Holy Spirit to convict people, even if there is some uncomfortable silence. I would suggest having everyone bow their heads and invite them to say the sinners prayer.
This is the last evening so make sure to have a prayer, however, if people want to leave, don’t hold them prisoner. You might lead them in the sinners prayer and then, for those who want to stay and be ministered to, you can talk with them and pray for their specific needs.
Some people may want to leave and you should give them an opportunity to receive Christ in a brief prayer and let them go.
A suggestion is to read this passage from John Chapter 3:3-8
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
That which is born of the flesh is flesh;
and that which is born of the of the spirit, is Spirit.
Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.”
3.Another good passage to read is John 3:9-21
Nicodemus answered and said to Him, “How can these things be?”
Jesus answered and said to him, “Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things? Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness. If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things? No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

Moon into Blood
America and the world are racing to the End of the Age.
A global convergence of cataclysmic forces, predicted by the ancient prophets known, as The Tribulation Period, is about to unfold. The opening of the Seven Seal judgments releases the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. World War III, mass death, thermonuclear war, global economic collapse, mass starvation and terrible man-made plagues that the Center for Disease Control describes as a “zombie apocalypse.”
Earth changes are produced through asteroid impact and earthquakes that cause environmental holocaust. The elite hide in underground cities. Transhuman and Posthuman species, which are the result of interspecies breeding of man, animal and Nephilim, who mate with human women. This Cyborg army moves east to Israel and Armageddon.
God makes a supernatural promise to deliver His people from the wrath to come. In the next few years, the elect will learn to use spiritual weapons in a parallel universe or invisible realm. They will confront demonic entities, moving into the earth through Luciferian portals. A massive last day’s soul harvest will occur before the Return of the Lord. On the dark side, millions will accept the mark of the beast and become slaves in the Antichrist’s new world order.
As the armies of the earth fight against the Messiah at the Second Coming, the world is transformed through His victory. Paradise is restored; a New Heaven and New Earth appear.
There is a coming event that will change everything on planet earth!
