Today I want to discuss Internet Evangelism. I am a child of the nineties and I could remember back in the day when those noises would sound to connect to AOL or Netscape. I used to fancy myself as a hacker and was on BBS servers talking with others and learning from other persons online. The Lord since saving me has shown me some great things online and I wanted to share how this new frontier is in need of evangelists.
On the Internet, Everyone Get’s a Soapbox
The Internet has become a place where anyone can have a soapbox. According to GSMA data, 66.53 percent of people on earth have a cellphone. Most of those phones are at the very least early model cell phones which means that Google and other things are a touch away. This can be a great boon to our society. Having a library at our fingertips can provide instant information.
Learn to Filter the Information Coming In
Instant information means that there can be both good and bad information at our fingertips/ Sadly enough much of the information out there is false and bad. The Bible foretold the rise of false prophets and Christs before the return of Christ and this is happening at a more alarming rate!
Matthew 24:24 – For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if [it were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect.KJV
Good Ministry Resources
So now we have to go to war to ensure that there are good resources on the internet to fight the influence of these bad and false influences. So where can we find some of these good influences to use on social media and other places where people are accessing information.
YouTube This place is a very dangerous place. There is so much false prophecy on here that anyone can be led astray, I know that I have had my own battles on here. Here are a few shows or channels that I believe are biblically sound.
- Todd White – Lifestyle Christianity
- Living Water & Ray Comfort
- Marcus Rogers – Preaching and Music
- Apostle Jennifer LeClaire
- Jack Van Impe
- Nephtali Ministries
Facebook This place is just as dangerous as YouTube. The second social network (first was myspace) which has become preeminent as THE social network online. This place has more ministers and ministries than anywhere else I believe. Again easy place to be led astray but here are a few places that I love on FB.
Bibles Here are some good resources for Bibles online!
Last Warning to Potential False Internet Prophets
Do NOT become a false prophet for the temptation is great, but we can really do good by ministering online! Next week lets talk about YouTube preachers!
2 Peter 2:1 – But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.KJV
