"Blessed (happy) are you that sow beside all
Sow the seed of God's Word in every way you can!
Let God multiply His work through you through the use of literature; social media like
YouTube, Wikipedia, FaceBook; CD's; DVD's; webcams, videocasts, podcasts, websites;
comics; games; drama; iPods; iPhones; mp3 devices; and any other form of media that can be
used by the Holy Spirit. Remember, the media is to be used to "teach all
nations;" it should reflect and magnify Christ... not man! Study the examples below.
* SOCIAL NETWORKING AND MEDIA
Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, YouTube and others are
all excellent ways to spread the Good News of Messiah Yeshua.
You can reach not only friends you know, or have known years ago, but people you interact
with from nations and cultures around the world.
You can even use language translators like IM Translator, Smartlink and others to communicate with people of other languages.
Twitter is especially efficient in that you are
limited to 140 characters and you can pack a lot if you link to a website in your message.
You can link to this site you are reading now: www.realmiracles.com or to specific pages on this site: like healing,
Prince Handley also uses Twitter for 24/7 continuous
releases of ALL his teachings and podcasts.

* NEWSPAPER & MAGAZINE ADS
Larger ads (like store ads); may or may not use
photos or illustrations. Get the attention of the reader. If you use artwork (photo or
illustration), then make your picture fit your wording (copy). If you need help, the
newspaper or magazine advertising department has people who will help you at no cost; or,
pray and ask God to lead you to a Christian who is good in graphics or advertising. Use
lots of white space in your ad; dont crowd it. Make it easy to read. See example of
"display ad below:
(Copy) WIN A TRIP FOR THE FAMILY!
(Photo) A family on the rail of a steamship, or
boarding an airplane.
(Text) "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and
you will be saved, and your house." [Note: The scripture text is placed somewhere in
the ad with the copy and the photo or artwork, but dont "crowd" the ad.]
Small, inexpensive ads (no photos) used to advertise
pets, employment, notices, houses for rent. The "Announcement" section is very
good to use since it usually comes first. Example of classified ad below:
(Copy) HERES YOUR CHANCE FOR A NEW START! The
greatest Jew alive will be in [your city name] this week. You may call him ahead of time -
He said to tell you, "Turn from your sins and ask me into your life. My name is Jesus
Use your imagination. If you have never
been good in art, or if you have never been creative, do not let that stop you!
Isaiah 42:8-9 and Isaiah 43:18-19 tell us that God can do a NEW work. Ask God for an
anointing of creativity. Then ... START. Ask God for wisdom. [James 1:5]
* RADIO & TV SPOTS (ADS) & INTERNET
60 second spots (1 minute). Run on non-Christian stations. Run at
different times in the day to reach different audiences. For example:
Early morning - people going to work
Mid-Morning - people at home
Noon-time - mixed audience
Afternoon - school students
Late afternoon - people going home from work in car or bus
Evening - mixed audience
Run a "cluster" of three spots in one 5 or 10 minute
You can use a conversation between two people (but no more than
You might want to use background music or sounds.
Use 30 second spots. You dont need as much time as you have
the advantage of being able to SEE with SOUND. It is good to use people from different
races and ethnic groups to show an example of Christs love and power! For example, a
black person, a white person, a Jew, and an Arab.
NOTE: Always use the CONTENT of the
Word of God in every ad you make.
Isaiah 55:11 tells us that God's Word will never return void ... it
will prosper, and accomplish the purpose for which God sends it!
You can run ads on Google, Yahoo, and Email
facilitators. Email them for specific rates and instructions. There are lots of good
"How To Do It" books on the market covering with practical information (such as
the "Idiot Guides," etc.).
* POSTERS, SIGNS, & STICKERS
Can be many different sizes: 10 cm
"mini-poster" to 1 meter "maxi-poster".
Can be "peel-off" self-adhesive. Can be
made in different languages.
Can be "weather-proof"; use special
weather-proof paper or coatings. (Can be used in rain, sun, or snow.) Can be used for
indoor or outdoor.
Can be large enough to be seen as people drive by.
(Read Habakkuk 2:2)
If used outdoor (one meter sign), make the name
"JESUS" large enough to be seen 150 meters away, then the rest of the message
smaller so it can be read when people are close. The same sign can be used for all the
sizes; just enlarge or reduce the original.
In some places, you can build your own billboards
and put them up beside the road, highway, or freeway. In large cities, you may find large
advertising companies who will give you free space for a period of time. The large size
billboards which are rented usually are owned by advertising companies.
Pray and ask God to lead you to someone who owns
land by a roadside and who will let you put up a large sign free. You can reach thousands!
* DVD's, WEBCAMS, AND VIDEO CASTS
It is easy ... and POWERFUL if done correctly ... to
use social media like YouTube, Wikipedia, and FaceBook for video casts you produce.
Go to these three media sources and view examples of what type of casts are being shown.
Then, get your own ideas from the Holy Spirit. And ... don't forget to let people KNOW
about your webcasts. Advertise! Promote! Get the word out! There are several
inexpensive paperback books on the market to help you with this. Also, search online.
You can make your own video presentations. WebCams
are very inexpensive. Also, many of the newer laptop (notebook) computers have built in
webcams. For creative content you will probably want to purchase a better unit, however.
Go to different computer stores and ask them about the kind of equipment you will need.
Many places will rent equipment.
You might consider and pray about going to school
(or taking an online computer course) in web production, cinematography, or other areas of
video or webcam production.
COUNT THE COST
BELIEVE GODS PROMISES
WORK FOR CHRIST
God wants to reach people with His
message more than you do!
DVD and web cam recorders provide an excellent means
of video presentation and most people have their own DVD players or iPhones; however
at the present, in some areas of Third World countries, films are still the most easily
seen by large crowds in the outdoors, and the least expensive. For work in larger third
world cities, where the people have their own TV, DVD players, and computers (or can rent
one), you may want to use DVD's, WebCams, or VodCasts (video casts) to evangelize or to
Podcasting is one of the most popular forms of media
presentation with amazing growth and acceptance in countries all over the world. All you
need is a computer and the know how. The know how can be learned from any of several books
on the market. Do a search on the Internet, or at a library, for "podcasting."
You can have a voice to the whole world for Christ. And ... if you are creative in the
Spirit ... you will find an audience and friends in every corner of the globe! You need:
1. Content that is interesting; 2. Consistency in broadcasting (regular podcasts you
produce); and 3. Uniqueness in presentation.
* POWER POINT OR MULTI-SCREEN PROJECTIONS
You need the following equipment:
WebCam ... or Video Camera
One DVD player, or computer, or High Definiton
screen. (NOTE: If the viewing is to be outdoors, or for large audiences, then you will
need adviceon what type of screen to use. In some Third World areas, films or DVD's are
still used more practically with electric generators.)
By using three projectors you can show different
pictures side-by-side, more action, and faster action. You can show someone finding Christ
as their Savior, with a Scripture showing at the same time on the next screen, while a lot
of color is "exploding" on the third screen: all of this while music is mixed
with a recorded Gospel message.
* TRANSIT ADS
Used on buses and taxis; and at airline terminals
and subways. May be used inside or outside on buses. If used outside on buses, the ad is
"eye-level" with the reader as the bus drives by them. The ad can be on the
back, on the side, or on the front of the bus. If used inside the bus
("car-cards"), you can have "tear-off" mail cards attached so the
reader can mail to you for literature.
Transit ads can be directed to specific ethnic
groups, by using proper pictures, artwork, or illustrations and the right messages, not
only at airports, but on buses which travel to certain ethnic areas and cities.
* DRAMA: OUTDOORS OR INDOORS
No expense involved. You dont even need good
clothes. Get a few people to paint their face, go to a busy place where there are lots of
people, and put on your act
preach the Gospel with drama - outdoors or indoors -
with voices (talking) or pantomime (silently, but with gestures). Great for marketplaces,
malls, and wherever people gather.
A new way to project a three-dimensional
("3D") image into a space without a screen. You may want to research this online
or at a university library.
It would be powerful to see an image of Elijah or an
angel preaching to people!
Similar to holography only robots are used instead
of projected images. In the last days, the Holy Bible tells us the anti-Christ
(false-Messiah) and his false prophet
will use an image [possibly a robot or holography]. Why shouldn't Christians,
with the Spirit of God, use them to preach the Good News?
* AIRPLANES & BLIMPS
Airplanes can pull a short Gospel message behind
them. They can be rented. There are also planes which can cut out letters in smoke to make
messages. Airplanes may be used to drop Gospel literature in certain areas.
Blimps, airships, and dirigibles can also pull
Gospel messages. And, lighted messages can be seen from computerized message centers
placed underneath; in this way, long messages may be shown at night to millions in large
*INTERNET / WEBSITES
Using the Internet (by computer) you can reach
people all over the word. You can reach kings, queens, national leaders, politicians,
wealthy people, religious leaders, criminal and gang leaders
people from every
religious, political, and social strata
in their own home!
Ask God to lead you to someone who knows computers
and can help you setup the site the way YOU want it. There are also several good
text-editing programs on the market now which make it much easier to develop web-sites
without a thorough knowledge of HTML or XML or RSS. Inquire at a computer software
store, or search on-line.
People can E-mail you instantly from all over the
world asking for prayer, information, or counsel
or for contacts to other
Christians. You can establish "links" on your site in cooperation with other
Christian ministries so the person viewing your site can interact and contact another
ministry directly from your site.
If you are going to have "links" on your
site, make sure they are NOT to a person or ministry who would destroy the FAITH of the
people to whom you are ministering. For example, if youre teaching someone about the
Baptism in the Holy Spirit, or about the Healing Power of Christ, you wouldnt want
them to link to someone who has lack of knowledge in the Word of God and would tell them a
lie "that God doesnt heal"
or that miracles dont happen
Take advantage of E-mail if you are using
the Internet. Not only for instant communication, but also to evangelize and teach!
You can get E-mail lists (just like phone lists) and broadcast the Gospel to
people right INSIDE their own houses and businesses.
Pray and believe God to give you a computer! Study
and do diligent research so that you may be a good steward of what God has given you: your
brain and time! Then let the Holy Ghost anoint you!!
* CD-ROMS & DVD'S
CD-ROMs and DVD's are an excellent medium to
teach and preach Christ: thru music, sound, and video. Be as creative as you want! Produce
actual testimonies or reenactments of true-life situations where God has done miracles in
produce Bible-stories. Let people see Jesus as a REAL man (God
in human flesh) in real life situations. DVD's can be used on computers, players, the
internet. Ask God to lead you
then study, read, and learn all you can!
Do you part
and the Holy Spirit will do
* COMIC BOOKS
This is perhaps the most unused and at the same time
the MOST POWERFUL
medium available. Young people and old people alike like
comic books in every country of the world!
If you live in a big city, go to the annual comic
book convention; youll see what a BIG market it is. Also, youll see how many
cultists and demonized people are using this medium. Christians have MISSED THE BOAT! You
can even do comic books in "Wordless" form where people can SEE the message
through the art with NO words.
Apostle Handley has published wordless books for years for children [and adults] with NO ART
just using colors to explain sin, the blood of Christ, Heaven, Hell, God,
and the Holy Spirit. How much more effective can you be WITH ART! Ask the Holy Spirit to
lead you to someone who is gifted in art. Go to a printer and find out how to prepare the
manuscripts for printing and binding.
SUGGESTION: Make a COMIC BOOK with each of the
How To Be Whole
How To Be Healed
How To Receive God's Power
How To Prosper
You could have ONE 28 or 32 page comic, with 7 or 8
pages covering each of the 4 booklets above.
In other words, EACH of the four booklets above
would be one section in the comic. There would be four sections inside the comic. Do them
in English or whatever language you want at first with the artwork describing each of the
phrases. You will have two (2) main printed areas on each artwork (caption) as follows:
Section 1: How To Be Whole
[8 pages / with 4 pictures on each page]
Title for the first picture - "God
created the universe
because He had a plan."
Dialogue for the first picture - "In the
beginning God created the heaven and the earth." [Genesis 1:1]
Suggestion: Decide what characters will be in the
comic sections: God, man, Jesus, devil, etc.
Then write out the dialogue and title for each
picture (artwork) section.
Finally, have someone DRAW the art to depict the
title and dialogue (action).
Note: You can show Jesus casting out demons, healing
the sick in the section How To Be Healed. You can show people being
baptized in the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues in the section How To Receive Gods Power.
Twenty-two (22) people were
baptized in the Holy Spirit and spoke in tongues just from reading one of the printed
copies of "How To Receive Gods Power" ... reading the SAME piece of
You might even be blessed to
produce a "wordless" comic book that could be understood by people anywhere in
the world. People could be saved, healed, filled with Spirit, and learn how to prosper!
Think what effect that would have on world missions, raising up churches, and helping to
usher in the return of Jesus Christ to the earth to set up His Kingdom! You will have MANY
rewards! God will BLESS you abundantly!!!

and preach the Gospel to every creature."
