The Faithful - Revelation 20:4

" I was just in Chicago with a high school student, a 17 year old boy named Jacob, who's faithful. That boy had a vision for a thousand of his friends to come to this event and to come to Christ. And because of Jacob's faithfulness that little theater we were in was packed because one boy was faithful and he wanted everybody he knew to come to Christ. He's a hero to me. "

Family Discussion:

  1. Don't you want to be one of the faithful?
  2. What are you doing today to become one of the faithful?
  3. Who are you leading to the throne of grace today? 

Transcription:

00:14          Who are your heroes? You know my heroes are students that I get to work with that are faithful. My heroes are men and women that I get to work with that are faithful. My hero is my wife Debbie Jo because she's faithful. My hero was my dad because he was faithful. My hero still is my mom who's faithful. Revelation 20 verse four talks about the Faithful. Listen to this. This is so incredibly inspirational and motivating to me. Verse four he says, "and then I saw Thrones and they sat on them and judgment was given to them and I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony of Jesus and because of the Word of God and those who had not worshiped the beast are his image and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand and they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years."
 
01:12          There are those at the end who are faithful. I was just in Chicago with a high school student, a 17 year old boy named Jacob, who's faithful. That boy had a vision for a thousand of his friends to come to this event and to come to Christ. And because of Jacob's faithfulness that little theater we were in was packed because one boy was faithful and he wanted everybody he knew to come to Christ. He's a hero to me. And then down in Florida, a boy named Connor, his daddy said, you can take a senior trip. You can go anywhere you want to go. And he said, only places I want to goes to heaven and I want to take all my friends with me. And he literally got 6,000 Orlando kids together for this event. And I was able to build a cross and just see over a thousand kids give their hearts to Christ because Connor was faithful.
 
02:05          Just recently I was at the Air Force Academy where the Christian students are getting persecuted and Christianity is getting put down. And through the influence, the ACLU and the agnostics and the cynics and, and even, uh, some, some people are into Wicca. These Christian students are faithful in three students brought 20% of the student body to the event before the cross. And hundreds of those students came to the cross that night because Scott and because of the faithfulness of Jack and before the faithfulness of Matt Rotor. We were at Virginia Tech and 2000 students followed one girl and one guy into this event to come to the cross. 2000 kids because one guy and one girl were faithful. Do you know that people are following you? And do you know that you can be a Jacob? You could be a Jordan? Or like my friends, Beau and Cooper up in Kansas City who had Saturday night parties that were free of alcohol that sometimes over a hundred students would come to because Beau and Cooper were faithful.
 
03:13          Do you know that you can be one of those people? And certainly at the end, you're going to want to be one of those people because the faithful who don't get into the work of Satan, who don't follow the anti-Christ, even though the antichrist, the beast is not yet appeared as he will to the degree he does a Revelation. He's everywhere today, but the faithful will celebrate with Christ forever. Don't you want to be one of the faithful? My question for you today is this, whether you're a student or whether you're, you know, in the workplace or you know, husband or wife or father, what are you doing today to become one of the faithful and who are you leading to the throne of grace today? At the end, the ones that follow you will call you faithful.
