I recently came across what I think can be a very effective tool in evangelizing the Present Truth. It’s especially good for the shy babe in Christ that wants to spread the word, but feel too inept to speak it intelligently enough. In today’s world with all the technological advances, we find many ways to do the work the Lord would have us do. With the invention of the printing press, Bibles, books, and tracts were printed and handed out. Soon after, radio was invented, and so the Christian found another avenue to share the Gospel message. Then came the telephone, TV, newspapers, magazines, audio cassettes, CD’s, DVD’s Internet, and now Bluevangelizing.
Almost everyone out there has a cell phone. And most of the cell phones today have BlueTooth technology. For those unaware, BlueTooth allows the people with those things stuck in their ears to maintain a wireless connection with their cell phones allowing them to talk without having to carry their phone. They can leave their phone in their pocket or purse and answer the phone with a touch of a button. So, how can we use this to preach?
A quick definition of BlueTooth is as follows…
Bluetooth uses a radio technology called frequency-hopping spread spectrum, which chops up the data being sent and transmits chunks of it on up to 79 frequencies. In its basic mode, the modulation is Gaussian frequency-shift keying (GFSK). It can achieve a gross data rate of 1 Mb/s. Bluetooth provides a way to connect and exchange information between devices such as mobile phones, telephones, laptops, personal computers, printers, Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers, digital cameras, and video game consoles through a secure, globally unlicensed Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) 2.4 GHz short-range radio frequency bandwidth. The Bluetooth specifications are developed and licensed by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG). The Bluetooth SIG consists of companies in the areas of telecommunication, computing, networking, and consumer electronics. –Source
If you have a PDA, or smart phone with Bluetooth (99% do have it) you can send just about anything from text files to pictures through the air to a cell phone, laptop, printer, or any other device with Bluetooth. So, how do you Bluevangelize with it?
The other day I was in Walmart with my wife. As she did her shopping, I went browsing about like I usually do. I decided to test Bluevangelizing out to see if it works good enough to consider making a page on the site. I turned the Bluetooth on in my PDA. Then I opened a doc file I created earlier. (see below) Instead of printing I hit “beam” to send the file to any Bluetooth device near me. Depending on the strength of your Bluetooth, you can send that file pretty far. Some Bluetooth devices can beam upwards of 300 feet! (100 meters) I actually got “connections” as I was driving in traffic that I was able to send off. After I hit “beam” the device automatically started searching for other devices near me. Immediately I had 10 Bluetooth capable devices near by popup on the screen. When all was said and done, upwards of 80 devices were found! Some were form Walmart itself, some unknown, and many were from personal cell phones. As the “finds” were popping up, they also had a link that said, “tap to send.” So I did. As I tapped on the first 10, I noticed a few people instantly grab their cell phones to look at who was contacting them. All of them appeared to click “ignore” and put their phones back in their pockets. Still, they did “see” what I sent.
To make a long story short, I “tapped to send” to at least 80 people in less than 10-15 minutes. Out of those 80, 3 actually “agreed” to receive the file I was sending. But the nice thing was, ALL 80 saw the “name” of my phone. What’s the name of my phone? “RemnantofGodorg” is what I named it. Why did I do that? Think about it… I named it that because some would reject the file I was sending. This way, they can still see the website address, and hopefully remember to view it when they get home. As for the 3 that did actually agree to receive see the file I sent? What did they see? All I send is a small note talking about the site. The following is what I plan to send out next time I do this…
See 6000+ pages of historic facts matched to Christian prophecies at www.RemnantofGod.org that expose who the REAL Antichrist is! How do we know who he is? Prophecy predicted we would right before the end…
“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?” –2 Thessalonians 2:3-5

It took all of 1 or 2 seconds to send the file to each person, and all of 10 minutes to “discover” 80 people to send it to. So.. the next time your waiting in line at the store, in the mall, at the library, or just sitting on a bench in the mall, or on the bus. Try Bluevangelizing and you will see how much joy you can get out of preaching the present truth with dozens of people in just a few minutes time!
