Citizens Always Must Proclaim Absolutely Immanuel's Gospel Now Evangelizing Daily!(C.A.M.P.A.I.G.N.E.D)

Ramesh C. Reddy

“Yes, and I ask you, loyal yokefellow, help these women who have contended at my side in the cause of the gospel, along with Clement and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life. (Philippians 4:3, NIV)

I asked myself who have contended at Paul's side in the cause of the Gospel?
1. Timothy, Paul's loyal yokefellow.
2. Euodias and Synthche
3. Clemente
4. Rest of the fellow workers.

I asked myself what does 'yokefellow' mean?
What came to my mind was someone who carries another person's burdens and problems but mostly that person's right hand man.

I asked myself why is it significant that Paul addresses Timothy as 'loyal yokefellow'?
Paul saw Timothy as someone so loyal, he could lean on to carry his burdens and problems but also someone who has contended with him by his side in the cause of the Gospel. Paul still sees Timothy this way but more than that he sees Timothy as one who can help him resolve the conflict between Euodias and Synthche being his yokefellow.

I asked myself what do I learn about Euodias and Synthche?
Euodias and Synthche have contended at Paul's side in the cause of the Gospel.
Euodias and Synthche's names are in the Book of Life.
Euodias and Synthche are in a conflict that needs a resolution (ref. Philippians 4:2)

I asked myself what is the significance of Paul asking Timothy to help them?
Even during a Gospel campaign, there can be conflict between people who see things differently and do not agree but Paul wants any conflict to be resolved to the point that he has to send Timothy as mediator to have Euodias and Synthche resolve their conflict. Paul remembers the time that both of them worked with him and now it pains him to see them in a conflict. Paul has to plead with them to resolve the conflict and go a step further to send Timothy.

I asked myself what are the important implications for my own life?
I learned that even when I contend for the cause of the Gospel, there will be conflict if I forget who I am campaigning for. If I forget that I am campaigning for Jesus Christ and Him to be glorified, I will give into the flesh and become Satan's pawn. Being Satan's pawn will only bring dissension and discord. Paul does not want that for Euodias and Synthche and neither does he want any believers to follow that path so he sends Timothy to mediate between them so the campaign can focus on JESUS CHRIST for the masses. 


When I campaign for Jesus Christ to contend for the cause of the Gospel, rarely will I be doing it alone. Instead, I will be doing it with a team of fellow workers who have the same passion and desire. However, the methodology of ministry could be different and it can cause conflict if I do not utilize JOY: Jesus First, Others Second, Yourself (myself last). Sadly, I have let other things control me because of wanting my own way and  became conflict-bound with other fellow workers to the point that I had hurt others who were contending for the Gospel. Selfishness made me forget what it means to 'Live the Truth and Proclaim the Truth'. Just as the Lord used Timothy to mediate between Euodias and Synthche, Jesus has used Pastor Hugo Cheng of Pittsburgh Chinese Church through the years to help me overcome a lot of conflict with fellow workers. Recently, the Lord has also used Edwin to help me resolve conflict. But, it should have never come to mediation, if I was walking in the Spirit instead of fulfilling the lust of the flesh.

I do thank the Lord Jesus for loving me so much that He did not keep me where I was. As I shared before, reading the book, 'Lord change my attitude before it's too late' by James McDonald became very impacting in my life.

The bottom line is I learned I cannot be effective in contending for the cause of the Gospel if I am so self-focused instead of God-focused. The whole point of contending for the cause of the Gospel is to make Jesus known and be known by Him in an intimate way of personal relationship between the Creator and the created (me & you) . I need to campaign for Jesus in a team without conflict and I can do that with the Lord's help only.

It is a daily process and I thank the Lord Jesus it started with God's grace and end with God's grace. It is this same grace that justified me and sanctified me.

I am justified in Christ now no matter what my sins have been because Jesus loves me so much that He paid the ultimate price on the Cross of Calvary with His blood. Now because of this justification, my sins are seen no more by God. Instead, Christ's righteousness is imputed to me. Therefore, I am saved by His grace. Jesus did not stop there but wants to give me abundant life here on earth instead of me being useless and waiting for entrance into Heaven after I die. This is where His sanctification by His grace transforms me daily.

None of this would have happened if the Lord Jesus did not use my mom and Pat Robertson to campaign for Him to let me know about Jesus. It is mostly through my mom that I came to know Jesus as my Lord and Personal Savior.

None of us can make a difference if it were not for the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is His grace that saved us and it is His grace that will produce goods works in us as He helps us yield to Him. Let us remember not only Ephesians 2:8-9 but also Ephesians 2:10. I want to make an impact! You should too!

It is by the Spirit of the Living God, that I was able to yield to Jesus and come to know Jesus as my Lord and Personal Savior because of the campaign of my mom. I cannot campaign for Jesus unless I voted for Jesus in my heart. Jesus desires me to come to know Him more and more. I am so glad that Jesus chose me to be His very own, special and precious in His sight. Because Jesus is in my heart, I can campaign for Jesus and contend for Him for the cause of the Gospel. You can too if you vote Him in your heart. Jesus is the best candidate in all eternity to campaign for. You and I can be part of His campaign team.

Isn't it that exciting?

I know it is for me.  Especially, it is exciting that our names will be written in the Book of Life!Praise the Lord!

I ask you now dear friends, how have you C.A.M.P.A.I.G.N.E.D for Jesus?
Dear friend, you can campaign for Jesus by the way you live your life and proclaiming the Gospel through word and deed. Jesus is worth campaigning for but you have to believe in Jesus and what Jesus is all about if you want to campaign for Him. Jesus has an awesome impeccable platform that He is running on! His opponent is Satan whose platform is filled with deception. You need to decide who you are passionate for.

Vote for Jesus Christ into your heart today!

1. Jesus is running on a sin-free platform and will free you from the bondage of sin so you can enter Heaven one day and not be subjected to Hell.
2. Jesus knows the state of mankind and  will make a difference in your life.
3. Jesus sacrificed His life for you, shedding His precious blood to cover over your sins and came back to life on the third day to save all who turn to Him.
4. Jesus is the only candidate that knows the ins and outs of the entire Universe including what will happen in your life so He is able to help!
5. Jesus will bring change into your life by giving you His Holy Spirit working in you as He alone can justify you by His grace and sanctify you by His grace.
6. Jesus will protect you from the deception of His opponent Satan because Jesus alone is Absolute Truth!
7. Jesus will give you His Word that will become a light unto your feet and guide your paths when you follow what is written in the Word :)

Jesus wants to do so much in your life but for you to be freed from this thing called sin, you need to believe in what Jesus stands for and give your vote to Him.

Will you do that my friend?

If you already have voted Jesus into your heart, what are you waiting for?

Will you be willing to campaign for Jesus Christ?

Do you love Him enough and what Jesus stands for that you are willing to spend time to lets others know the Jesus you serve? 

Does Jesus mean that much to you?

I hope Jesus means so much to you that you want others to know about Jesus and are desperate to campaign for Jesus Christ! You will be helping to write their names in the Book of Life when they yield their life to the Savior surrendering to Him as Lord! Praise the Lord!

I have encouraged my loving wife Chandra to campaign for Jesus in a particular person's life telling her that she alone is the person I believe God has chosen to reach that person. With the Lord's help, I know she can prevail!

Campaigning when it is hard is noble because that becomes a challenge where our faith, hope, and love is turned upon Jesus instead of ourselves.

I love the movie, 'The Cross & the Switchblade' because it shows what the love of Christ portrayed in a sinners life can do. No matter how rebellious Nikki Cruz was Rich Wilkinson wanted to reach him with the love of Christ even though he was from a bad gang. Rich had in mind to campaign for Jesus and eventually Nikki Cruz gave his life to Christ as his ways changed! Praise the Lord!

Jesus has campaigned through the years for people to vote Him into their hearts. Jesus has been running on a perfect record and all of His accomplishments are covered in a book that is put out called the Bible.

You can vote for Jesus because He did not come to be served but to serve and give His life as a ransom. for many! Praise the Lord! He promises to bring change in people’s lives and He does not break promises. He will fill you with His Holy Spirit so He can bring change. Amen!

You have that opportunity right now. Don’t wait but let this be the day of Salvation!

There are only two candidates running for your vote and in this spiritual election, there is no such thing as not voting. If you do not vote for Jesus Christ, you have automatically given your vote to Satan.

Let’s look at Satan’s record:

1. Never could serve loyally that he even corrupted 1/3 of the angels.
2. He was impeached and removed from Heaven and thrown into Hell.
3. He fills the air waves and the world with his cunning lies sounding to be truth.
4. He waits for you to come and reside with him so he can torment you.
5. He will lie to you about Jesus Christ and make you think that you are living a truth presenting to you all kinds of false gods.
6. He will promise you all sorts of treats that will turn to tricks.
7. He will keep you in bondage to sin so he can have you in Hell.

Friend, know this day that Satan is not for you or anyone else you know. His whole goal is to destroy people’s lives when they vote for him. Of course, he won't tell them that because he wants things to look like the truth but Satan's ways are Absolute deception.

Sadly, there are so many people that have already become his puppets and campaign for him.  It is time we break this cycle and pull those from the clutches of Satan.

Once they experience the love of Christ and who Jesus really is, they will wonder why they even campaigned for Satan with their lives by living their lives the world's ways and teaching others to do that. But they need to come to Jesus to be delivered from the deception of Satan and  his ways.

 Whether you are a woman or man, you can now campaign for Jesus not only this day but always for the polls are always open across the world 24-7. Satan salivates for your vote but
God desires that none should perish but all to come into repentance.

Who can make that possible?

JC my friend! Jesus Christ is in the House and wants to make it possible for you.

When it comes to the Book of Life, Jesus Christ has to be the best reason for you to campaign for Him.

Won’t you do that friend?

Jesus Christ loves you so much that He is the only candidate that sacrificed His life for you on the cross. He took the nails of three to set you free! He is running on a sin-free platform and has come back to life to save people! Whatever you are going through, He is the only candidate that has the Answer, for He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one can come to the Father except through Him.

Jesus knows the state of mankind and what they need. He knows how to set people free and bring them a new beginning. Jesus is all about change. He wants to change your life. Yes, He does friend!

Don’t let the enemy deceive you into thinking that you do not need to campaign for Jesus or present the Gospel because that is other people’s job. Satan would love you to believe that so you do not contend for the cause of the Gospel. But we are all commanded to follow the Great Commission.

Evangelism and discipleship is for all of us to follow. May you vote Jesus Christ into your heart today and may you be so excited about your candidate that you cannot help but tells others.

"Citizens Always Must Proclaim Absolutely Immanuel's Gospel Now Evangelizing Daily!"(C.A.M.P.A.I.G.N.E.D)/ ”How have you C.A.M.P.A.I.G.N.E.D for Jesus Christ in life?”

Jesus, I want to thank you so much that you came as God-incarnate to run on a sin-free platform. You know what the world is plagued with and what your opponent Satan has been trying to do. Satan was a liar from the beginning and continues to be, trying so hard to take us with him. But, you don’t want that I know, for while we were yet sinners you died for us. You came back to life to save us so we can be freed from the power of sin and death. Thank you Lord for paying the price for me! Thank you for your impeccable record advertised in the Gospels. Thank you that your accomplishments are all listed in a book published throughout the world called the Bible. It is no ordinary book but your Word of Truth. In your Word of Truth, you also tell us about your opponent and all his lies. Thank you for making us aware of that. Thank you for being my Lord and Personal Savior as I come to you and vote you into my heart. Lord there is no lever to pull but the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart.  I confess with my mouth that you are Lord and repent of all my sins. Please forgive me and help me. I believe you died and rose again for me. Come Lord Jesus into my heart and forgive me of all my sin. Make my heart your home and live in me Jesus so I can live for you and serve you the rest of the days of my life. Thank you Jesus so much for coming into my heart and making my heart your home. Thank you that you will bring change into my life as I seek you Lord. Thank you for your awesome promises. Help me Oh Lord not to be deceived by your opponent ever! Satan comes to steal, kill, and destroy but you have come to give life in all its fullness! I thank you so much. I want to campaign for you daily. Please help me Lord to contend for your Gospel. Thank you that my name is written and certified in the Book of Life as I turn to you. You are the perfect candidate to vote for! Lord. Thank you so much Jesus for hearing us and answering us. In Your Name I Pray Jesus! I want to thank you again for loving us so much and for be willing to be a candidate years ago and continue to be a candidate for our sake! You have won the victory over Satan and you are the Lord of all! Amen!

No matter what you feel in your heart, know that Jesus has come in and resides with you! You are not alone! To make your walk strong with the Lord, spend time in prayer talking to Him as you would to a friend. You don’t need special words to talk to the Lord. Spend time in His Word reading Psalms and turning them into prayer. Next allow God to heal you and speak to you through the Gospel of John or Gospel of Mark before moving on to other Books of the Bible! Slowly, let the Lord show you to which Scriptures He wants you to go to next. It is also important to be part of a body of believers to help you grow in the faith. Find a Bible believing church that preaches the Word of God from Genesis to Revelation proclaiming Jesus Christ our crucified and risen Lord who brings us hope, healing, and help by His grace alone. May the Lord Jesus guide you in His love leading you! Amen!
