He Who Wins Souls Is Wise

The Soul Winner's Poem (pdf)

He who wins souls is wise, declares God's truth.
That applies to both the very aged and the youth.
So what are you doing to rescue the many lost?
Whatever happened to: Save souls at any cost?
[Prov. 11:30; Jn. 17:17; Acts 16:9]

Get out of that church building and off that pew.
The harvest is great, but the laborers are few.
Go out to the streets and spread the Word.
To obey is vital and you'll never be bored.

[Lk. 10:2; Acts 5:42; Lk. 11:28]

Multitudes are perishing all around;
And hardly a soul winner is ever found.

What's the problem? How could it get so bad?
Try to rescue the lost and don't just be sad.
[Mt. 7:13,14; 24:10; 1 Tim. 4:1; Acts 26:17,18]

Some have gone alone, because another they can't find.
They have left their comfort to go after the blind.
Easily hand out sound gospel tracts with a few bible words.
People need truth now, so don't wait for the big herds.
[Mk. 10:29,30; 2 Tim. 4:2]

To be acknowledged before God, acknowledge Jesus before men.
That's God's way about that, both now and back then.
As you go about your weekly travels and routine,
Hold out the word of life to the elderly and teen.
[Mt. 10:32; Phil. 2:16]

With every minute multitudes of lost people die.
If you're a Christian don't be fearful or shy.
If nothing else, read 1 Cor. 6:9-11 to the people.
Point them to Jesus and not the church steeple.

[Mt. 10:25,26; Jn. 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 John 5:12; 1 John 2:23-26]

If you're ashamed of Jesus or his words, he'll be ashamed of you.
If you're lukewarm, out of Christ's body you will be spewed.
Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor.
Get out there yourself and don't just be a religious observer.

[Mk. 8:38; Rev. 3:16; Rom. 12:11]

When you're zealous for souls you will suffer somehow.
There's always a price to be paid by those who plow.
With your bible and sound gospel tracts in hand,
You'll have the spiritual potential for fish to land.
[2 Tim. 3:12; Mt. 10:28; Lk. 9:62; Mt. 13:47-50]

Simple obedience to spread the gospel is always a win,
Even if most reject and foolishly remain in their sin.
Christian, you have been entrusted with the good news.
Spread and defend it is a sure victory and never a lose.

[Jn. 5:40; Mt. 25:14-30; 1 John 2:3,4; Lk. 8:21; Mt. 22:14; Phil. 1:7; Gal. 1:8,9]

Jesus told his spiritual family, to the lost, go.
That's for all the sheep, including pastor Joe.

Spread the gospel to others and their sin abhor.
Pray for the sick, cast out demons and give to the poor.
[Mt. 10:6; 28:18,19; 2 Tim. 4:5; Jn. 20:21; Jude 23; Lk. 10:20; Acts 16:18; Mt. 10:8]

What can a man give in exchange for his soul;
Even if he, the world would gain, whole?
So reason from the scriptures to compel them to come in.
Jesus taught, "Go now and leave your life of sin."

[Mark 8:34-36; Acts 17:2; Lk. 14:33; Jn. 8:11]

Everything that causes sin and all who do evil will be weeded out.
There is no partiality with God -- let there be no doubt.
The crowds are traveling on the wrong and easy road down.
They are dangerously lost and urgently need to be found.

[Mt. 13:41,42; 1 Pet. 1:17; Mt. 7:13,14; Lk. 15:9, 24; Rev. 21:8]

One heart beat away from hell and too few care.
De-emphasize the temporal, including your hair.
How can you love them if you don't speak the Word?
To deceive yourself about that is foolishly absurd.

[Isa. 2:22; Mk. 12:31; Acts 17:17; James 1:22]

The deceived are enjoying the pleasures of sin for a short time.
Unaware of the fiery dangers ahead, while wallowing in slime.
Even the once saved are not safe to do detestable things,
Though we all heard it from pulpits and in songs they sing.
[Heb 11:25; 2 Pet. 2:22; Tit. 3:3; Jer. 7:9,10 cf. Eph. 5:5-7]

Let the Lord's message ring out from you, as you go about.
That's what the Thessonians did, who even had grand clout.
Their faith in God had become known all around.
Throughout the country sides and all over town.

[1 Thess. 1:6-8]

Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord.
Obedience and pure motives will yield a sure reward.
Be unmoveable for your labor in the Lord is never in vain.
Don't give up even if you don't see instant gain.

[1 Cor. 15:58; Heb. 5:9; Mt. 6:1-20; 1 Cor. 4:5]

It takes time to grow a plant from a gospel seed.
So when discouragement comes don't concede .
One sows and another reaps the harvest for eternal life.
Aquilla traveled and sowed seeds with Priscilla, his wife.
[Jn. 4:36-38; Acts 18:2,18]

Open your eyes for the harvest is ready now.
De-emphasize the yard work -- go out to plow.
We soul winners are unworthy servants only doing our duty.

One must first be born again to later see the King's beauty.
[Jn. 4:35; Col. 3:2; Jn. 3:3-7; Luke 17:10; Isa 33:17; Mt. 5:8]

Like an experienced farmer, sow gospel tracts and verbal seeds.
Always go by the written word of God and ignore all the creeds.
Some church people will think you are weird and strange,
But if they become wise, their view will change.
[Lk. 8:11-15; 2 Tim. 3:16,17; Jn. 12:48; 1 Pet. 4:4; Mt. 7:24]

Start your own personal gospel tract ministry.
Don't they need a soul winning station in your vicinity?
Remember, God's word will not return void,
Even if some of the hearers get angry and annoyed.

[Mt. 5:16; Isa. 55:11]

They must be radically changed from darkness to light.
Do you care enough to try to rescue them from their plight?
The great commission is for all who are saved.
Reach out to the lost; they are deceived and enslaved.

[2 Cor. 5:17; Acts 26:18; Mt. 28:18,19; Acts 8:4; Titus 3:3]

Clear yourself of their blood responsibility by casting gospel seed.
You save yourself from their blood, even if they don't take heed.
Also know if they reject you, it's really Jesus they refuse.
Jesus is really the one they hate, so don't get the blues.

[Acts 18:6; 20:26,27; Luke 10:16]

Most professing Christians and preachers are spiritually dead.
That's more proof the real gospel must be faithfully spread.
But a counterfeit easy-believism message prevails in our day.
One must humbly repent, commit to Jesus and endure in his way.

[1 Tim. 4:1,2; 2 Pet. 3:9; Eph. 5:24; Heb. 3:14]

Then there's the eternal security stumbling block.
The devil's masterpiece lie has infected the flock.
That doctrine extinguishes the evangelism fire;
The teachers of such have become prophets for hire.

[Jude 3,4; Mt. 24:12,13; Jude 11]

Being a Christian is a lot more than just sitting through a sermon.
Don't believe for a moment that one's salvation is pre-determined.
All 5 points of Calvinism are ruinous and dreadful error.
It's not God's will that any be cast into fiery terror.

[Lk. 11:27,28; Mt. 11:28,29; 1 Tim. 2:4]

Billions of souls need saved and time is quickly flying by.
Don't just listen to the word; to soul win you must first try.
You don't have the gift of evangelism, says the father of lies.
Reject such thoughts and run your spiritual race to win first prize.
[James 4:14; 1:22; Mark 16:15,16; Jn. 8:44; Col. 3:1,2; 1 Cor. 9:24]

For the sake of precious souls, get active and don't delay.
Give them God's word and don't worry about what to say.
Pray before you go, have faith in God and be alert.
Don't cast your pearl to swine or you could get hurt.
[Mk. 8:34-36; Lk. 18:1; Mk. 11:24; 1 Pet. 5:8,9; Mt. 7:6]

Be as wise as a serpent and as harmless as a dove.
Think of the perishing and walk in holy love.
On the wicked God will rain burning sulfur and fiery coals;
Helping people find Jesus must supercede our other goals.

[Mt. 10:16; Heb. 12:14; Psa 11:6]

They need gospel truth more than food or money.
They're in the greatest danger and that's not funny.
If you never won a soul to Jesus, you don't know the thrill.
Go and you will grow over time in your soul winning skill.
[Lk. 5:18-25; Rev. 20:15]

They are in the trap of the devil, deceived and misled.
In many of their cases, it's because their bible is unread.
Sexual sin, drunkenness and more are dragging them to hell.
The goal should be to enter Paradise and therein forever dwell.
[2 Tim. 2:26; Tit. 3:3; 1 Cor. 6:9,10; Eph. 5:5-7; Rev. 21:1-8]

But nothing impure will enter New Jerusalem to be with God.
People need forgiven and purified, though that might sound odd.
Their names must be written in the Lamb's book of life.
Receive God's truth about that and don't start any strife.
[Rev. 21:27; Mt. 5:8; Ps. 69:28; James 1:21]

Use only sound gospel tracts and not the free junk.
Go to the highways and byways with a nice thick chunk.
Tell the people they will perish unless they repent.
All of your loving efforts will be time well spent.

[Lk. 13:3,5; Mt. 22:9,10]

Early Christians never stopped proclaiming the good news.
One is born again through the word of God not religious views.
Remember Jesus' bloody sacrifice and the price he paid.
Boldly shine your light before others and don't be afraid.
[Acts 5:42; 1 Pet. 1:23; 1 Pet. 1:18,19; Heb. 9:26; Jn. 14:27]

You must get aggressive and go with the eternal facts.
That shouldn't be a problem if you use sound gospel tracts.
You can just hand them to the people and go on your way.
In the end you'll be surprised at the results, if you do that everyday.

[Acts 26:18; 8:5-25]

Most people in your area are going to hell.
Leave your house for awhile to go and tell.
They must obey the gospel or they will go into the fiery lake.
We aren't just supposed to know that, disciples we are to make.

[Jn. 14:6; 2 Thess. 1:8; 1 Pet. 4:17; Mt. 28:19,20]

Save yourselves from this corrupt generation, Peter said.
It is for all the people that Jesus on the cross died and bled.
The bible is true, God is real and Jesus is alive.
To enter the narrow gate you must earnestly strive.

[Acts 2:40; 1 John 2:2; Jn. 17:17; 2 Tim. 3:16,17; 1 Cor. 15:1-4; Lk. 13:23,24]

Ask yourself, why am I not trying to win souls?
They're headed for eternal torment in fiery coals.
Do you think your excuses at the judgment will stand?
Be faithful to the Lord and don't ever fear man.

[Psa. 11:6; Rev. 2:10,11]

You must press on and reach out for the dead.
Get your mind off yourself and on them instead.
Once you were like them, so ponder their need.
It was for them too that Jesus did die and bleed.
[Col. 3:1,2; Phil. 3:12-14; Rom. 5:6]

The mystery of the gospel, boldly make known.
It's better to go with another, but some go alone.
Remember the gospel urgency shown by the martyrs.
Ponder their beatings and deaths for starters.
[Eph. 6:19; 2 Cor. 11:24-27]

If you are a Christian soul winner you already have beautiful feet.
When evangelizing, don't over emphasize being well-dressed and neat.
Stress giving the people the clear message so they can understand.
Like cold water to a weary soul is good news from a distant land.

[Isa. 52:7; Rom. 10:17; 2 Cor. 4:2; Prov. 25:25]

Be a good soldier of Christ Jesus and with hardship endure.
Spread the good news to everyone, both rich and poor.
Eternal glory or eternal fire are the destinies two.
The stakes are infinitely high, so go after the few.

[2 Tim. 2:3; 2 Cor. 4:17; Mt. 25:41; John 5:29]

Warn the righteous and unrighteous about the dangers of sin.
Consult the bible about that, not the wolves in sheep's skin.
Wherever you live, you're in a rich mission field.
Go after souls with faith in God as your shield.

[Ezek. 3:18-21; Ps. 7:10; Mk. 11:22]
