Modern Evangelism: Mistake #9

Modern evangelism has failed to preach up the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Modern Evangelism - Mistake 9 - E. A. Johnston

Just because a modern day movement occurred in our lifetime whereby a major seminary omitted the necessity of repentance and salvation and preached an “Only Believe Gospel” of heresy, we have swallowed it hook, line and sinker and we’re sunk.

You cannot come savingly to Christ and be united to him in saving faith without surrendering to his Lordship at the time of salvation.

Our modern theology has made two things of this when it has always just been one. You don’t come to Christ now savingly and then later on have a deeper experience of him and then surrender to his Lordship to have a deeper walk. One of the most damning heresies of our day has been the omitting of the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Listen friends, he is a King, a Sovereign, and he will have none in his Kingdom who are rebels against him living in sin.

You must throw down your shotgun of rebellion and surrender to the Almighty, to come to him savingly. You must bow to Christ and his Lordship now or you will bow to it a future day when he puts his foot on your neck.

Jesus sits on a throne at the right hand of the Father and he earned that right by way of a bloody cross. He is a risen Lord. You must submit to him in his present office.

I fear many today in our churches have never seen a revealed Christ or heard his voice through saving faith. They’ve never seen the risen Lord and submitted to his authority in their lives. No, but they sure want a Savior who can write them an insurance policy against hell. They don’t want to surrender to all his claims and rights on their lives through His Lordship.

Listen friends, Jesus sits on the right hand of the Father and he reigns in glory as Lord and he earned that right by way of a bloody cross. You must take Christ where he is right now and He’s a living Lord.

The biggest heresy of our day and for the last 50 years has been the omission of the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

The devil has used this as a controversy in the church because the devil wants you to remain unsaved and in your sins and his servant. This error has damned countless of thousands.

You must bow to His Lordship now or he will place His foot on your neck and make you bow to him them when His enemies become his footstool.
