Request for prayer

--- Please pray that the Gospel presentation document "How To Get To Heaven" in various languages on this website would be readily accessed, effectively understood, and instrumentally used by the Lord to bring countless numbers of people around the world to salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.

An important coming reality:

Upon the start of the Great Tribulation, believers can lose their salvation.  For details, see the document "End Times Speculations", which is located at the top of the 'Doctrines' web-page.

? Did you know that:
- - God has assigned all true believers to be functioning as "priests", doing ministry work in a church or ministry.
(For more information, see the document "1 Peter 2:5 - Assigned To Be Ministering In A Priestly Fraternity" in this '1 Peter' Sermon or Lesson Outlines web-page.)

- - Replicate This Website Into Your Language:

I am hereby offering to grant permission to anyone who is interested, that you can translate my documents in this website into a foreign language, and then post them on the Internet.

I ask that you provide your translated documents for free download, and not sell them.  However, you can provide a way for your website clients to extend a freewill monetary donation to you.

I ask that you take the time to translate each document as accurately as reasonably possible, and not pervert or adulterate the doctrines, concepts, and meanings of what I have written.

You can translate from the New International Version (NIV) the Scripture verses I use, thereby rendering no need to secure copyrights from the owners of any Scripture translations.

I may be able to raise some financial support for you, to cover some of your expenses in setting up, running, and adding documents to this kind of website.

You can structure the website just like mine, if you want.

I have already achieved translation of most of my documents into Spanish, which you can view to see how I therein replicated my (English) website into an additional parallel Spanish branch of my website. 

And I gladly offer to help you set up your website, if I can.  Or, you can work with me to add your translated documents as a parallel branch of my website, if feasible.

- - Church-planting:
A primary reason why church-plants do not succeed is because God's people and/or God's servants fail or downright refuse to make the sacrifices that are necessary for the church-plant to sufficiently develop, progress, and come to viability and self-sustaining.  Apparently, they fail to realize and/or accept the importance that church-planting plays in God's program to build His kingdom.

To substantiate these assertions from the Scriptures, and in brief:
- - - -
since the time of Jesus Christ on this earth, the church is the main element in God's program (Matthew 16:18);
- - - - through the church, the gospel is preached to the world (Ephesians 3:4-10);
- - - - during the early time of the Apostle Paul's ministry to share the gospel with the Gentiles and plant churches among them, the Philippian church was the only church who had enough concern for him and his ministry work to therein send support to him, and repeatedly
(Philippians 4:10 with verses 4:15-16 and verse 1:5).
