Taking God’s Name in Vain

Keep us in your prayer as we will be driving to Salt Lake City before next weekend to once again preach the God of the Bible outside the LDS conference, where thousands come to hear from their prophet, apostles and of course us.
We have fought the city for free speech rights on the sidewalk for years in this uphill battle. As the Church is in bed with the government, police and media. 
 The public sidewalk around the LDS convention center has little room as the city has placed a small flowing river on the sidewalk and with that moving water there is not much room to stand. We are continuously reminded to not block the sidewalk.
The Mormon members have been told by the prophet to avoid us and not discuss or argue with us and with reason. Like any other religious group, most Mormons do not know the Bible, they know tradition.
However, earlier this year I was on the cover of their LDS magazine and that gave me much favor with these people. 
 This past April many came up and talked as to why Mormons are NOT Christians.
As we stood in front of the LDS convention center across from the Temple, I had a Mormon standing next to me holding the magazine and saying "You need to hear what this man is saying, He is on the cover of LDS Living”
The LDS magazine had never had a non-Mormon on their front cover before, so having a street preacher that reproves them publicly for outgrowing the Bible and was known for dragging their book of Mormon on the sidewalk is beyond rare. 
  Getting on the cover of ‘LDS Living’ was a result on being in a movie “Us and Them” 
Click the link below to view the official trailer of this documentary on politics and religion in America.
I went to the opening preview in Salt Lake City as this film made the local news, all becsuse one Mormon had the courage to walk up and ask me questions.
Within time he understood why I stood outside and wanted to let his Church know that these street preachers are not monsters.
Going to yearly events as I do, I do get a chance to see people again and pick up our conversation where we left off a year ago. 
 I am starting to see fruit from preaching in Salt Lake, as it is very hard rocky ground. 
 Anytime one preaches against religious people, that field is stony soil and takes much digging and uprooting before that seed can be planted and watered. 
If one would witness or preach ‘Jesus Loves You’ most Mormons would say ‘Yes, I know, I believe’ and walk away. We must expose that they have a different Jesus and another Gospel. 
 We must reveal how they have outgrown the Bible. 
We must unmask their prophets, writings and man-made tradition. 
 We must expose the LIE before we can give TRUTH.
We are outside preaching before the LDS conference begins, answering questions during the conference and when they exit each session. The days and hours are long but worth every minute. 
Many good books are written about Mormons being a false Church or cult but someone needs to buy those books, listen to these DVD’s to understand why. 
 We are there on our own time and dime contending for the faith. 
 If you wish to support our labor, you can send your investment to:
Ruben Israel
P.O. Box 1233 Norwalk, CA. 90650
Pray for us and the ears who will hear that Jesus is not satans brother and how the book of Mormon is not inspired. 
  If you believe that Mormons are Christians but just are misled on a few points, I beseech you to watch this interview I had with a Mormon high priest and understand this was not a debate. I wanted you to hear what Mormons believe and why they will never expound of their beliefs. 
You will hear many topics within this dialogue
As street preachers we have a message for everyone and I do admit, my points are a bit unbalanced.
This was not Avon calling at the front of the White House I preach much on God’s righteous judgment, His holy anger and eternal hellfire coupled with repentance…with good reason.
Not only is it Biblical, but I am only trying to balance out the watered down, God is love and all forgiveness gospel that many preach. People like me only even out the teeter totter to give the full Character of God.
“For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God”
Acts 20:27
Some people believe the devil or a demon is sitting on their shoulder trying to tempt them into sin.
For me personally, sinners physically are around me and not tempting me but telling me how much I am hated for my faith in Jesus.
“Deliver me, O Lord , from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man"
 Psalm 140:1

End of summer, but God HEATS up

Being a street preacher does not mean you just stand on a street corner and preach to pigeons and cars driving by. The concept is to go to where people are, the modern day market place or the main gates as per Proverbs 1:22-23
“Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets: She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words”
“Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice? She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths. She crieth at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors”
Proverbs 8:1-3
And that is and artery to promote what God says. For example this week Katy Perry is having two concerts in Orange county and Los Angeles.
One can find a record on concerts in your city listed on your Sunday newspaper. Not only can you find concerts, but book signing, conventions, political rallies and religious news, all in one Sunday paper.
When I view a newspaper, it is not to see what happened yesterday but what I can do tomorrow.
The Kate Perry concert is a sad commentary on the American family as 60% of those attending were mothers taking their young daughters who were dressed like little whores, 38% were lesbians or effeminate males. 
 And were they offended in my ‘Homo Sex Is Sin’ banner, some even told me that I ‘should ashamed because there was children present’ 
  Did you know that Katy had parents who were ministers?
She is the daughter of Keith and Mary Hudson, evangelists who still travel around the nation speaking openly about their faith, Perry told Rolling Stone magazine in 2010 that God “is very much still a part of” her life.
That was then and this is now and to say she is backslidden would be an understatement, as she is now straying even further away from that upbringing.
  The picture below is Perry kissing Miley Cyrus but she says she is not a sodomite. Yet has a song ‘Ur so Gay’ and ‘I kissed a girl’
She had an interview and was asked about her religious beliefs, to which she said.
"I don't believe in a heaven or a hell or an old man sitting on a throne. I believe in a higher power bigger than me because that keeps me accountable. Accountability is rare to find, especially with people like myself, because nobody wants to tell you something you don't want to hear. I actually don't trust people who start to turn on me because they get scared of telling me the truth. I'm not Buddhist, I'm not Hindu, I'm not Christian, but I still feel like I have a deep connection with God. I pray all the time—for self-control, for humility. There's a lot of gratitude in it. Just saying 'thank you' sometimes is better than asking for things. It really doesn't matter what you are so long as you're a good person.”
Christianity was everywhere at her concerts, signs, banners and people passing out tracts, so at the end of the night, those unwanted ears heard and saw the Word of God.
Our case in Dearborn was expected to lose, because it is in Dearborn and we will always be the visiting team in Islam land. Not to mention those judges do not wish to get their homes or offices bombed. 
  The Dearborn court is right next to the Dearborn police department and I must say for a small city, that police department has plenty of armor units, bomb vehicles and other military looking wagons.
This was the same court that gave an angry Muslim probation after he tried to run nine of us over with his SUV in front of the Dearborn Mosque. It was not our word against the driver, he did it right in front of two police vehicles who filmed it with their dash-cam. He was going to be charged with nine counts of attempted murder but was given probation and walked. Justice, not much in Dearborn if you are the visiting team.
So our case was taken to Detroit and we lost there too, 2-1. Now the case is now going to the Circuit Court and if that court fails, our attorney says this has Supreme Court written all over it as they love to argue free speech. 
 It appears the Circuit Court will hear our case and we will be given a date sometime before the end of the year. Keep this case in prayer as I have been told that Islam is watching this case closely and it appears members of CAIR were in the courtroom. 
 We are very thankful for the many free speech lawyers who are fighting for our rights in court, to keep us safe on that public sidewalk. To read the article, clink the link below: Court OKs dismissal of case tied to Dearborn Arab festival
With school back in full swing.
College campuses across America are being bombarded with open air preachers from coast to coast. And as you know, we are to blame for ‘turning people away’ but will these same students rebuke their professors for doing the same? 
  How many Christians start as a freshman and graduate as an atheist. Those professors have done much more damage in one class that any open air preacher will do in years. 
 Yet we get the blame, understand that we are there to mop up the mess that is getting taught. As most students are concerned with getting a grade and compromising, rather than TRUTH.
As you know the book of Acts does NOT have an ending
Those very ‘acts’ should be going on today in the same manner as the book of Acts.
Preaching Jesus is NOT a ministry or a gift, we are commanded to do such. In fact, it is our duty.
Most Churches have children ministries, worship ministries, single ministries, feeding homeless ministries, prayer ministries, deliverance ministries, healing ministries, puppet ministries, jail and prison ministries but not much on confessing or professing Jesus in public. Which is NOT a ministry but a commandment.
“Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven”
Matthew 10:32-33
Note, the word ‘whosoever’ and with that, have you shared Jesus with someone today?
Always good to have a Brother watch your back
Often times the streets and places we go, it is good to have a brother watch your back. As we have the potential to get into a violent theater and I do enjoy plowing those fields with men who are sober men doing their job and working together. 
  The reason why we have so much in-house fighting in the body of Christ, is due to the fact many have never risked their lives for their brothers. 
 Lay down their lives, WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
 Show me someone who is always debating or arguing on facebook, youtube and chatrooms and I will show you someone who does not spend much time on the street/campus/open air. 
  “A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother”
Proverbs 18:24
“Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts”
Psalm 139:23
What many people DO NOT know, is that besides God, I am my biggest critic. 
 I judge myself and my motive harder than most will ever know in my prayer closet. Which is why I do what I do and say what I say with good conscience. 
 False accusations, slander, lies, gossip, labeled a cult and heretic has not affected my 34 years of public service and the day I am concerned what others think. Is the day I hang up my megaphone.
“But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man”
1 Corinthians 2:15

Naw Orleans

Last weekend was Labor Day weekend and a number of us labored in the streets of New Orleans at an event called ‘Southern Decadence’ where sinners labored in their sin.
“The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity”
Psalm 5:5
These sinners were not kidnapped and driven to Louisiana then released on the streets of New Orleans, they worked at being there. 
 They rearranged their schedule to get there, they paid for airfare or drove and stayed in rooms f
or one reason, SIN. 
 Hence they were “workers of iniquity” and God sent this rebellious people certain preacher who proclaimed a clear precise message
to disobedient people.
“An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him”
Proverbs 17:11
We were surrounded by angry sinners who had issues with a holy God and were bold living in their darkness.
“Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men”
Psalm 59:2
“Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity”
Psalm 64:2
Thursday was arrival date as we came from all parts of the nation (FL. N.C. PENN. VIR. N.M. CA. TX) to preach repentance to unwanted ears, as many claim to know God, yet live like the devil. 
 They know all the verses on God forgiving and God being loving, yet lack the full counsel of God. And because we were as bold as their public sin we were hated and attacked daily.
Friday and Saturday mornings we worked with local Churches outside two abortion clinics with banners surrounding this death mill. 
 They use large aborted pictures, offer tracts, counseling and have a baby crying on their speakers blasting the clinic. 
 This should bring conviction to anyone with a conscience. 
The Lord has used these active saints to shut down local abortion clinics.
The picture below, is a young black gal who came for an abortion and was confronted about what she is doing. A sister from the Church got involved and warned her of that abortion, as depression will oppress her. The young woman said she had to abort, because she had 3 children from other men and lives with her parents and could not have another. Adoption was not an option, almost convinced, she declined all godly advice and proceeded inside to murder her child.
In the photo below we were talking with a black minister who had issues with our approach and that we do not understand the community. 
 He said within his Church, are people living in fornication, adultery, will be on Bourbon Street and will even have an abortion, but they
are children of God. 
 Brother Brian remember this same guy six months ago when we were in town and confronted him on being a Mason. He said he was and defended it, the link below is a video clip of us outside this death clinic and what happened with this Mason minister whom we invited to preach with us and to see the fruit of what his watered down gospel looks like Monday-Saturday outside those four walls. 
Proclaiming the God of the Bible in public and with the strength from the Lord, we persisted in the heat, rain, day and night plowing that rocky ground, moving boulders and uprooting trees before we can even plant that seed and water that seed. This hard in your face preaching is very fruitful
As a result of that method of Biblical preaching, it will provoke some very good one on one conversations and those smaller conversations are life changing.
The questions are ‘what is sin’ ‘there is no hell’ ‘I thought God was love’ ‘judge not’ ‘Jesus never preached this way’ ‘there is no God’ ‘why should I repent’ ‘I already believe, I am saved and can sin and be forgiven.’ 
  The topics are endless as we may discuss music, current events, politics, other religions, laws, whatever the question we give them an answer from God’s position, not our feelings or
what is politically correct. 
To get a visual of our congregation and preaching, click the link below;
On Sunday we stood outside the oldest Catholic Church in the USA and publicly rebuked them as a true Protestant, protesting sin and the Church. Many saints would have been killed by this religion for what we did and said. 
Preaching in front of religious building is NOT New as many men of God in the Bible did such.  See Jeremiah 19:14; 26:2 for details. 
 As this Church is nothing but a Moose lodge with a cross as it does not speak for God.
“They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you”
  Jeremiah 23:17
To see this public rebuke of this Great Whore Church who births much sin and heresy, click the link below:
Of Course, the big hit was Brother Noland, this young man preached and had women in tears. A number of sodomites and Catholics yelled at us that having him preach is ‘pure child abuse.’ 
 Many gathered to hear what he said, as he is light years ahead of most ministers
Since when is a sodomite concerned with children? They molest them and how they have intercourse, they will never produce children, they are anti-children. And to those Catholics, we remind them to get angry at their Church who is known for molesting little boys. 
 Most women stopped and listen to Nolan as his crisp voice cut right to their soul, many of those women could not yell ‘child abuse’ because they are pro-choice and have no conscience killing a baby. 
  The picture below is the reaction of these sinners after hearing young Nolan preach
“Rescue me, O LORD, from evil men; Preserve me from violent men”
Psalm 140:1
We stood in the middle of Bourbon Street and lifted up a holy standard of God, exposing light to a dark street. Those dead men walking were given TRUTH and LIFE but loved their sin. 
 They were reminded the city that Hurricane Katrina happened just nine years ago and like a dog, they have returned to its vomit.
We walked the streets as Jonah did, preaching repentance to all, as it rained booze from the balconies.
“Onward Christian soldiers! Marching as to war, With the cross of Jesus Going on before. Christ, the royal Master, Leads against the foe; Forward into battle, See, His banners go! Onward, Christian soldiers! Marching as to war, With the cross of Jesus, Going on before…”  
Many of Churches have sang this great 19th-century English hymn but today I believe they are unworthy to sing such a song. 
 What do they know about battle and most Churches are at war with God and many are anti-military, so the word ‘soldier’ is not in their vocabulary.
The two photos below are interesting, as these biker guys defended homosexually.
Maybe too much time in prison and not enough time in that Bible
I was told by these biker guys that we were not Christians and not loving, we needed to be more loving. OH….I forgot to mention….the big beard guy who accused us of being unloving, was so angry that he showed us his love and spit on one of the street preachers. He was arrested (see photo below).
We did not press charges, so he was released and warned by N.O.P.D.
LAW and GRACE collide;
It appeared State Troopers were on Bourbon Street in force and the city police would ask us to move and accuse us of starting a riot. Once that call came over the radio, N.O.P.D. and Troopers were everywhere and we were threatened with arrest. Of course the crowd cheered when we walked away.
At the end of the day, we warned the masses of sin and the price for said sin. They were given the hope of Jesus, only with repentance of their sin. We do pray that God send more labors to reap that harvest and God will give growth.
“I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours”
John 4:38
Thank you for your prayers, as we worked with many ministries in New Orleans. 
 One Church that gave us a place to lay our heads and fed us and another that gave us a place to cool down and rest. We were blessed to have a former White House Chef who served President Reagan, Clinton, both Bush’s and Obama fix our meals.
He fed us three times a day and would announce from the kitchen door, what he was serving, what President he served that meal to and how it was prepared and with what spices. 
  He had stories and he loved what we did and was honored to feed us lowly street preachers from the same menu as found in the White House.
