This end times discipleship program is uniquely designed to make disciples for Christ using the Word and a simple process of multiplication while increasing your circle of friends and having fun.

Weekly memory Scripture: Matthew 28:18-20.
Today’s Scripture: Matthew, Chapter 1. Please Underline verses that will help you make 12 disciples for Jesus.
Identify in a way you can come back to for review what scripture from today’s reading that will help me make 12 end times disciples for Jesus. You may want to highlight the scripture in your bible or you may want to write it out – however you can best come back for reminder and review.
Disciple: In today’s scripture reading, why does the book of Matthew begin with the hard-to-pronounce names of the ancestors of Jesus? Some people may try to read this and give up.
Servant: Family background is important to Jewish people. Their long-awaited leader, called Messiah, was to come from the family of King David. In Acts 2:30 it says that God told King David that “… He would raise up the Christ to sit on his throne.”
D: The conception of Jesus by the Holy Spirit is hard for me to understand.
S: Joseph, Mary’s future husband, was also perplexed until an angel of the Lord explained it to him in verses 20 & 21.
D: Didn’t a prophet predict it?
S: Yes, about 600 years earlier, Isaiah said, “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son and they shall call His name Immanuel.” (Isaiah 7:14)
D: Immanuel means, “God With Us”. This is getting interesting.
S: You’re going to love reading the Bible.
D: What is 12 end times disciples for Jesus?
S: I’ll tell you but first, “May I ask you a question?”
S: How many disciples have you made for Jesus?
D: None. Why?
S: Jesus tells us to “…make disciples…” for Him. (Great Commission, Matthew 28:18-20).
D: Sounds impossible. Will 12 for Jesus help us make disciples for Jesus?
S: The 12 for Jesus end times discipleship training will help you mature spiritually so you can make 12 disciples for Jesus who do likewise.
D: Please excuse my asking, but what’s in this for me?
S: Rewards. Jesus says in Revelation 22:12, “…I will reward everyone for what they have done.”
D: Good. What is the 12 for Jesus training?
S: It’s only 12 minutes/day for 12 months.
D: Anything else?
S: Your end times discipleship family gathers weekly so everyone can share what they learned.
D: Makes sense. Please explain this Disciple (D) & Servant (S) format.
S: The Disciple (D) represents a new believer and the Servant (S) represents a mature, disciple-making follower of Jesus.
D: I understand. This is going to be an adventure.
S: You’re right. You’ll discover priceless treasures as we explore the Bible together.
