Wheels For the Gospel 

Posted by Afrika4Jesus on 21st May 2017

Learn more Moving around in the mission field involves – most of the time – maneuvering through impossible unpaved roads. Only very rugged, four wheel drive off roaders can tackle these roads.
Six years ago, the Lord provided one such vehicle for us at Afrika4jesus. Six years of patient, meritorious service is beyond retirement age for a vehicle under these conditions.
We are, therefore, raising funds to replace our old reliable.
Is the Lord laying it in your heart to partner with us in acquiring a new vehicle?

Unreached People Groups in Nigeria

Posted by Afrika4Jesus on 20th May 2017

<!-10 Most Needy Unreached People Groups in Nigeria
Unreached people group is a term used for a people group among which there is no indigenous community of believing Christians with adequate numbers and resources to evangelize themselves.
The concept became very popular as the church seek to pursue the fulfillment of the prophecy of John in Rev. 7:9 “… a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb”. A research of all the major people groups in the world was carried out and surprisingly,Out of about six billion people on earth, 1.2 billion(20% have not heard the gospel yet.). Out of 332000 known missionaries worldwide, 328000 work among the evangelised. Only 4000 work among the unreached people. That is a ratio of one missionary to every 300000 unreached people. 1739 people groups are still unreached several centuries after Jesus had come and paid the price for our redemption.
Out of these, 590 are from Africa and not less than 40 from Nigeria. No fewer than ten of the unreached people groups are listed among the chronic groups that have very insignificant number of Christians. Most of the ten do not even have a single person who is a Christian. This remind us of questions raised by Oswald J. Smith Why should some people be hearing the gospel over and over whereas others are not given the opportunity to hear about him once? This is nothing short of criminal negligence and a clear indication of the great omission of the great commission.
Below is the list of 10 of the over 20 chronic unreached people groups and their locations.
1. SHANGAWAS – Also known as the Kyengawa are among the descents of Kishera who left Badr near Mecca to escape Islam. They are found in Dendi, Bagudo and Yauri LGAs of Kebbi State. The only convert in Nigeria is reported to have gone back to Islam.
2. BUDUMA: Live on the shores of Lake Chad, No known Christian
3. BOLEWA – Fika and Nangere LGAs of Yobe State, and in Bauchi State, No known Christian
4. BUTAWAS – The Butawa live in Ningi LGA of Bauchi State, No known Christian
5. LARU- Borgu LGA of Niger State, No known Christian
6. BARUBA Baruten LG of Kwara state, No known Christian
7. BASHAR – Found in Wase and Kanam LGAs, in Plateau State, No known Christian
8. ACHIPAWAS Sakaba LGA in Kebbi State & Mariga LGA of Niger state. Only 25 converts in 3 villages
9. BISA- Borgu LGA of Niger State, Only two known Christians
10. KUTIN- The Kutin are found in Ganye LGA of Adamawa State. Only Four Christians

Who Is A Missionary?

Posted by Afrika4Jesus on 6th April 2017

Who is a missionary?

A popular English Dictionary defines ‘missionary’ thus: One who is sent on a mission.

While this definition is good enough on a general note, for the purpose of this write-up, a more detailed definition is necessary hence the following question:

Who then is a christian missionary?
A christian missionary is one who is sent on a Mission by God.
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. (Mk. 16 :15) .
In the light of the above, it follows that every saved, born-again child of God is a missionary. It also follows that Missions, Soul Winning and Evangelism – in the context of Mk 16 :15 – is not a suggestion or mere advise. On the contrary, it is a command.
…Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man…” (Romans 2:1) if your ‘very tight and busy schedule’ is the reason why you are not involved in missions.
Admittedly, not every born-again child of God has the calling of a full time, front-line missionary. In fact, not even all the Apostles were full time like Paul. While the Pauls, Barnabases and Silases were out as field missionaries, others were home based, supporting them in prayer, cash and in kind. So, if your busy schedule cannot allow you to go, you can become a home-based missions supporter, raising prayer and financial support for frontine missionaries.
Now, child of God what is your answer to this all-important question of all times:
“… I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Isaiah6:8
(1) Is it, like Isaiah, “Here am I; send me?” or (2) “Here am I Lord, but send them?”
Beloved, if number one is your answer to the question above, then I will challenge you to STEP out of your comfort zone and STEP OVER to where the real action is: THE COMBAT ZONE OF WORLD MISSIONS!
Join us today to take the gospel of Jesus Christ to the over 900 Unreached People Groups of Africa and contribute your quota to world evangelization.

Be part of God’s End-time Mandate to reach the nations for Jesus and in the process, lay up for yourself, TREASURES in the Bank of Heaven where neither moth nor rust can destroy.
Willing to go as a Front-Line Missionary? We will give you the requisite training.
Willing to go as a home-based WILLING MISSIONS PARTNER (WMP)? We will provide you with the apposite platform to operate.
You can also take advantage of our Holiday Mission Trips to experience first-hand, the exigencies and exciting thrills of a Front line Missionary on the mission field.

WHO ARE WE?

Afrika4Jesus is a movement of christians fully committed to executing God’s End-Time Project on earth, i.e. Preaching the gospel to all nations but with particular emphasis on Unreached People Groups of Africa.

OUR AIM

The End-Time Project of God on earth is summed up in Mk.16:15, “…go ye into all the world and preach the gospel…” And unless this project is executed to a logical end, the “End” would never come.

It is in view of this that we, in 2011, embarked on “Afrika4Jesus Project 11/20” a Missions Initiative aimed at taking the gospel to the over 900 Unreached People Groups of Africa by year 2020 starting from our Jerusalem – our Oko Riverine Mission Fields in Delta State, Nigeria.

YOUR PART IN IT

We believe that we can and will realize this objective in target time with the support, partnership and cooperation of missions-minded believers like you.

This offers you the opportunity to contribute your quota to world evangelization and in the process, lay up for yourself, TREASURES in the bank of heaven where neither moth nor rust can destroy.

THE CHALLENGE

I challenge you, therefore, to step out of your comfort zone and step over to where the real action is: The Combat Zone of World Missions.

JOIN us today as a Willing Missions Partner (WMP) and be part of what the Lord is doing among Unreached People Groups of Africa in this End-Time.

GO, GIVE AND PRAY FOR MISSIONS.

MISSIONS OR MONUMENTS?

Posted by Afrika4Jesus on 8th January 2015

MISSIONS OR MONUMENTS ?

"...running with the Mission Vision"

        “…running with the Mission Vision.”

They were trembling and cowering and shaking and shaking with fear;
They were huddled together in terror in the upper room.
‘I say’, trembling, cowering, shaking, shaking, shaking with fear,
One hundred and twenty gathered in the upper room.
They were praying, praying, saying, ‘O Lord send down the fire’.
O Lord, O Lord, O Lord, o-o send it we pray.
 
Having received the mandate – the greatest commission of all times:
But ye shall receive power after the Holy Spirit has come upon you and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem and in all Judea and in Samaria and unto the uttermost part of the earth”. (Acts 1:8),
Christ’s disciples retired to an upper room where they waited and prayed in uncertainty and fear for the fulfilment of the prophetic promise.
They had no boldness, they had no power, they had no resources (human, material and financial) to carry out the onerous assignment they had just received.
As they waited, as they trembled. As they prayed: SUDDENLY, the unexpected happened! Heaven itself came down upon them in the form of “a rushing, mighty wind…cloven tongues of fire… sat upon each of them.” (Acts 2-3).
Empowerment has come upon a powerless, hopeless, defeated people. They rushed out from their hiding place and began to preach the gospel with unqualified boldness!
That marked the beginning of the EXECUTION OF GOD’S ENDTIME MANDATE ON EARTH, the first phase of the GREAT COMMISSION “…and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem…”



NOTE: God is a meticulous planner. He gave general instructions

            on the project modalities in the Gospels. “Go ye into all the                     
            world and preach…”  (Mark 16:15). Then in Acts Acts 
            of the Apostles (Acts 1:8) detailing comes in.BACK TO OUR DISCUSS.
As they started phase one of the project they were stupefied by the immensity of their success.
Here!” They exclaimed in utter bewilderment. “We labored with our Master, criss-crossing the length and breadth of Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria for three years. And what do we have to show for it? A miserable one hundred and twenty people. But now in one fell swoop, we have gathered over three thousand people. Not three thousand that have come because they were hungry for bread.” (John 6:11-12)They  were amazed beyond measure. Imagine a church that grew to about ten thousand members within the twinkling of an eye. (Each of the three thousand converts must have had at least, two children. Throw in about one or two househelps/dependants and the congregation would hit the ten thousand mark.)

Remember, they had only unveiled phase one of the End Time Mandate!
This was the first physical, corporate church. (Acts 2:42)

They were now face to face with the onerous task of consolidation: Disciplining the new converts and managing their sudden success. But, alas! That was as far as they ever went.

As they were trying to put an administrative structure on the ground: Fellowship regulations and timetables; Sharing in love; Having swell worship and praise sessions and so on and so forth, the real big bang came – the first major miracle (distinct from the “signs and wonders” of Acts 2:43) took place – The Beautiful Gate cripple was healed and over five thousand people repented on the spot.

By now the church membership would have hit twenty thousand. The Apostles now had a real problem in their hands: MANAGING SUCCESS.

This is what has killed the vision of the church today and derailed her from her track: S-U-C-C-E-S-S.

How would a church with twenty thousand members think of missions?

Have they built a cathedral big enough and befitting of their status as a Mega Church?
The Founder and General Overseer’s comfort has to be taken care of as a matter of urgent, ‘national?’ importance, of course, by providing answers to the underlisted questions:
   

  • Is the mansion (Bishop’s Court) befitting enough for the ‘great man of God?’
  • What of his fleet of cars – does it contain the latest in auto technology?
  • Has he got a private jet yet? If yes, how many?
  • Is their private university listed among the first ten in the world?
  • Are the tuition fees paid in US Dollars, British Pounds or Euros?

In fact the list of frivolities is endless and in the process, THE CHURCH SETTLES DOWN TO BUILD A BABEL.
What a shameful tragedy.

STAGE         GOD’S TIMETABLE.            CHURCH (MAN’S) TIMETABLE

1 P.M.         Acts 1:8B Jerusalem.                Acts 1:8B Jerusalem

2 P.M.         Acts 1:8C Judea.                        Acts 1:8B Jerusalem

3 P. M.        Acts 1:8D Samaria.                    Acts 1:8B Jerusalem

4 P.M.         Mk. 16:15 All Nations.               Acts 1:8B Jerusalem

Although the church at this stage was very successful she was really rather a failure!
She seemed to be moving forward but she was actually moving backwards!
That’s a paradox, isn’t it?
 
I will explain.
 
Acts 4:1-20. The Apostles did not relent in preaching the gospel. If anything, they were preaching with inexplicable boldness, knowledge and power that baffled the bigoted religious leaders. The big questions, however were, “Where they preaching to the target audience? The audience of the hour? Were they still operating in God’s timetable?”
The answer is “No”‘ as we can see from the table above.
 
They started with God in stage one but refused or neglected to move when God moved hence they were operating at one o’clock when God had already moved on to four o’clock. Still harvesting Jerusalem when God’s sickle was laid over the whole world – ALL NATIONS at four o’clock – for the final harvest.
 
And that is the tragedy of the century: PREACHING THE GOSPEL OVER AND OVER AGAIN TO A PARTICULAR PEOPLE WHEN OTHERS HAVE NOT HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF HEARING IT (THE GOSPEL) ONCE.
 
What time are you in now as a corporate church? What time are you operating in as a born-again christian, an individual church?
 
Even when they ventured outside Judea as a result of persecution, they still witnessed to their own people only – the Jews. (Acts 11:19-20)
 
What is your concept of Missions today? Only going out to establish your own denomination? To plant another branch of your church in a place already saturated to bursting point with churches?
 
Or do you perceive Missions as taking the sweet story of Jesus to people who have not heard it before? Reaching the UNREACHED?
 
Far, far away in heathen darkness dwelling,
Millions of souls, forever may be lost.
Who, who will go, salvation story telling
Looking to Jesus counting not the cost?
 
They were doing the right thing at the wrong place. Preaching in Jerusalem to a people who had heard the gospel a thousand times and had as a result become constipated in the process while out there in Judea, people were dwelling in heathen darkness, dying and going to hell without Christ.
And that is exactly what today’s church is doing. Overfeeding the minority few with the bread of life while the majority unreached are starving.
 
Well, the Apostles may have their reasons for staying put in Jerusalem. 
They may explain it away thus:
‘Did we not preach in Judea and Samaria for three years without substantial results? Now we preach only once in Jerusalem and thousands are converted?
 “A pity. How short their memory was. They had probably forgotten the city of Sychar and the woman of Samaria. (Jn 4:5-42.) They had also forgotten the Galilee breakthrough of verses forty-four to forty-seven.  Or maybe, they did not forget at all – only considering economical viability.
Would investment in those areas be economically viable? Is the Samarian “oil” in commercial quantity?
They must have analysed thus: 
Years of effort yielded only a handful of converts in Judea.
One day effort in Jerusalem yielded 3000. 
So which of them is a better investment haven?
This is how church leaders plan their “Missions” strategy today! They see it as a business venture and only invest where the yield – financial yield of course – is highest. Soul winning has become a secondary consideration hence the scramble to plant churches in high brow sections of modern cities.
As far as they are concerned the Unreached can wait. They can remain Unreached until the “more urgent” task of setting up elegant cathedrals are accomplished.
“Where would the converts worship if the cathedrals are not built?” they ask.
They remember to forget that Jesus left the temple and went out there to the mountains and valleys to seek those that were lost – the Unreached. Once in a while they raise “missions offerings” – a paltry sum that is handed over to a visiting missionary in a well publicised ceremony.
