Romans 10:2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
The ICOC is a movement of churches which make their most zealous disciples twofold more the child of hell. Founder Kip McKean and his false church are exposed in this sermon by a former member.
Zechariah 4:6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.
We must not rely upon the strength of our flesh when we do works for God. We can only accomplish great things by the spirit of the Lord.
1 Corinthians 1:20-21 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
We all have fleshly wisdom but only the saved have access to Godly wisdom. You can be the wisest person in the flesh, but the babe in Christ will have greater wisdom available in the word of God.
Hebrews 4:2 For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
Salvation in the old testament was no different than it is today, received by grace through faith. There has only ever been one gospel void from the works of the law.
Matthew 9:37-38 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.
- 31 in attendance
- 13 soul winners preaching the gospel
- 8 souls saved in Nambour
Meeting at a hall in Nambour, we had 10 soul winners divided into 5 groups who went preaching the gospel. There were 5 souls saved that morning.
Those who stayed behind in the hall with the children watched videos on Soul Winning for Beginners to equip them for future opportunities.
Everyone was deserving of a well earned rest and light lunch. It is always exciting to exchange stories of the people who were spoken to at the door or on the street.
With a slight change of silent partners, 9 individuals continued knocking the doors on their designated maps. There was an additional 3 souls who received Jesus as their saviour in the afternoon.
Church Service & Dinner
We ended the day with a church service which was a great time of rejoicing over the 8 souls saved. It was a time for singing praises, bible reading, and preaching of sermons. Needless to say, dinner was enjoyed by all.
The sermons can be heard in full below:
Acts 2:41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
This church event was linked with the global 2018 Soul Winning Mega Marathon efforts to preach the gospel across all nations. Amazingly, the results have equaled the numbers we read about in the book of Acts. Praise God!
Total Soul-winners: 2,301+
Total Salvations: 3,042+
Colossians 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
On our first Sunday we had 66 in the congregation with attendees from Sunshine Coast, Sydney and other parts of Queensland (Brisbane, Gympie, and Ipswich). It was a historic moment filled with great fellowship and praise for our Lord God.
