      The Encouragment of the Lord

      Wednesday, June 25, 2008

      The summary of this blog is shared before the first post is met when a person scrolls down:

      (This site was not developed with the intention of drawing a large number of visitors using trivial methods and shallowness. There is rejoicing among the angels of God over even one sinner that repents and believes in Jesus Christ. (Luke 15:10) If, for as long as this site is in existence, only one sinner is lead to repentance and belief with the aid of the material presented here, then the purpose of this site has been served.)
      Recently someone contacted me wanting to share a testimony of a brother they have shared with in a forum. After receiving permission from this brother, I am now going to post the message. I don't want to say anything further because I don't think I could do this the justice it should receive from my feeble words except that I wept before I finished this message:

      Lane,

      I'm a member of a message board that is a secular one, but has a Religion/Philosophy/Christianity forum on it.

      I posted the link to your full video message, The True Gospel (Paul Washer @ VCY America Conference). I wanted you to see a message I just received about it.....

      ----------------

      You don't know me, but I just wanted to thank you for posting that Paul Washer "True Gospel" YouTube video. I'm 23-years-old, grew up in a Christian home, and *thought* I knew quite a bit about the Gospel and Christianity in general. In fact, if you had asked me two weeks ago if I was a Christian I probably would have said yes.

      Then, thanks in part to you for posting that video here on these forums, I came to know the real Gospel, and on June 14th of this year (only ten days ago) I really, truly came to know Christ. Over the last ten days I've experience a change in my life that's practically unexplainable. Certain sins that used to plague my life and that I KNOW I could have never overcome on my own have suddenly vanished. And the sin that still is in my life is now so detestable and abhorrent to me that I have to repent of it 2-3 times a day.

      I've stopped watching television. I've stopped doing and loving the worldly activities that consumed my former life. Now all I seem to want to do is read Scripture, listen to audio sermons on my computer, praise and glorify God through prayer, and live in the footsteps of Christ. In fact, since my conversion I can't even stop thinking about Christ! It's wonderful.

      I have Biblical assurance of my salvation; there's no denying the supernatural change that has occurred in my life. I am saved.

      Anyway, I've shared all of this with my family and friends, and I thought I should tell you about it as well. It really is amazing what one small action of posting a YouTube video on an internet forum can do in the lives of others. (I've even posted it on a few forums myself in recent days!) The Lord truly does work in mysteries and wonderful ways. So, again, thank you. And thank the Lord.

      Keep up the good work, my friend.

      Your brother in Christ,

      Joel
      -------------------------------------

      I wanted to share this wonderful news to show you how much of a difference the work that you're doing is making. May the Lamb that was slain receive the reward of His suffering!

      In His Service,
      Keith


      The angels are rejoicing. May the Lord receive the reward of his suffering.

      You know, I would have to say that this testimony is almost exactly like mine. Honestly the only things I would change are the age (by one year, 22) the Sermon ('Shocking Youth Message' on YouTube) and that its been about 5 or 6 months since I came to know Christ, the same exact Christ this man now knows. GLORY TO THE LORD! - Jon

      Wow. What an encouragement.

      This testimony should be forwarded to heartcry missionary society to encourage the people there.

      Lane Chaplin said...

      Thanks for suggesting that, Joel (not the same Joel in the post. :) )
      I sent it to Heartcry this morning.

      It is a blessing to hear of true repentance taking place. May God be glorified.

      Thank you Lane for your ministry. I too have been blessed by your proclamation of the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have been following your blog and youtube videos for a few months now. My testimony is very close to that of our young brother also, but you can add about 20 years to his age. I have been in some type of ministry ever since high school and for 11 of the last 15 years of post college life but was living a cultural christianity that had no life in it. After seeing Mr. Washers' video while preparing for a message to young people the conviction of the Holy Spirit fell on me in a palpable way that I can only describe as "crushing". Since that time popular entertainment holds no joy for me, I hunger after the things of God like I never knew was possible and my family is never doing "devotions" again, they are being discipled by their husband and father. Thank you again for the work you do!
