How to come into partnership with “turn if you will” ministry?
To partner with “turn if you will” ministry simply set a standard in your home to hold weekly or bi-weekly Bible studies. This can be accomplished by inviting family, friends and neighbors so that the message of John the Baptist is heard. Which is the baptism of repentance and then receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit that only comes through Jesus Christ.
Mark 1:1-11 [kjv] 1The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;
2As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. 3The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. 4John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. 5And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins. 6And John was clothed with camel’s hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey; 7And preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose. 8I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost. 9And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan. 10And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: 11And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
When selecting material, choose a chapter out of the Bible and go over it verse by verse giving everyone in the group opportunity to ask questions or give opinions. All are encouraged to inquire of the Lord for direction. There are many articles on the web site IamSearchingForYouGod.com that can be used as a Bible Study templet. Or just simple start in the Gospel of John.
On attending church: whether or not you attend church is not important at this time; what is important is that you begin to have a relationship with Jesus Christ and coming into fellowship with your creator and savior; read John 1:1-18. One thing that must be fully emphasized is that all the churches in this world are run by men or women that are trying themselves to come into fellowship with Jesus Christ and some fall short of their calling. This short fall effects all that attend their church and further effects those outside the walls of the church building that have for such a long time felt a pulling to something that they can’t explain. The bible is clear that the Father will draw his children into fellowship with Jesus Christ; see
John 6.44-45 [kjv] 44No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. 45It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.
It must be clearly understood that each individual is called into relationship with Jesus Christ and that relationship is through the Holy Spirit. No one will have an excuse when they stand before God on judgement day and say the preachers were not good enough or that they didn’t like the way that the churches were ran. Jesus Christ is calling you into fellowship with his Holy Spirit and it is up to you whether or not you except His calling on your life. Read Matthew 16:24-26 [kjv] 24¶ Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 26For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
See also I Corinthians 2:6-16.
Isaiah55: 6¶ Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
