Mixing politics and religion

Last Sunday we had five (5) democratic candidates come to Los Angeles and the reason was to win over the Latino vote. 




Of course this brought out the media because everyone knows they are knit together. 




So we preached to them the good news that Jesus is Lord and Trump is in office 




The meeting place was CA State LA and this campus is known for not allowing free speech. 

We were met with a high ranking officer from LAPD who gave us much liberty to stand near the main door. 




With banner raised and the preaching echoed well into those buildings. We not only pray for our nation, WE VOTE TOO. 

Abortion and Islam will destroy a nation 

"But if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, saith the LORD" 
Jeremiah 12:17 




I must say the building they meet was small and the amount of people that went inside were MAYBE 200 people. 

We reminded everyone when Trump speaks 1000’s come to hear him, with 1000’s more outside in the heat, night and rain. 

But five democratic candidates in a small building could not get 200 people 




Here is a couple reporters that had questions and the Lord gave them answers 

"For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted" 
Isaiah 60:12




This guy was a Bernie supporter and they did not let him inside. He was one of many that were not allowed inside the building. 


Here is an article from the campus newspaper

Presidential candidates air issues affecting the Eastside and South LA

At the end of the day, we gave ample reason why God will damn a nation or bless a nation. 

God is into politics, as we have two books in the Bible named 1&2 Kings, where God is involved in government. 

The book of Revelation is filled with evil politics that will come. 




IF you have not noticed the effeminate has entered the church today, because one must be sensitive to know the Holy Ghost and sensitive means being fragile, delicate and touchy feely. 




Men have been neuter and filled with a ‘familiar spirit’ that is more familiar and female friendly to show how sensitive they are. 

Fruit of being open and delicate to the Holy Ghost today, is crying, shaking, speaking with soft voice that will never offend. 

I have said for decades, one cannot be a spiritual man unless he is a man first. 




“Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong” 
1 Corinthians 16:13 

How many of you heard ‘God works in mysterious ways’? 




I say NOT true, He works in conjunction with His WORD the BIBLE and THAT is the reason God is mysterious to them. 

They do not know or read the Bible, therefore it is mysterious. Nothing cryptic, zero surreptitious and not puzzling to those who study that book. 


THE EVILUTION OF WORDS 




The purpose of words is to convey meaning. 

However, a word takes on a life of its own and its eventual meaning can stray far from its original intent. 

Case in point, when the English clergyman Thomas Fuller used the word ‘unfriended’ in a letter dating from 1659, we can be pretty sure he wasn’t talking about his facebook. 

Instead, Fuller used the word to mean something like ‘estranged’ or ‘fallen out’ a straightforward literal meaning that has long since fallen out of the language. 

It’s to be expected that the words we use will change and develop over time as they begin to be used in original and innovative new contexts. 

But in some instances, these developments can lead to words gaining new meanings entirely different from their original implications. 

Awful: 
Awful things used to be ‘worthy of awe’ for a variety of reasons, which is how we get expressions like ‘the awful majesty of God.’ 

Naughty: 
Long ago, if you were naughty, you had naught or nothing, however today it comes to mean evil or immoral, and now you are just badly behaved.

 Husband: 
A husband was originally a home-owner or a head of a household and not necessarily a married male. 

Punk: 
No one knows where the word punk came from, but its earliest meaning in English was as another name for a prostitute, the meaning by which it appears in Shakespeare’s Measure For Measure. Over the centuries, the word seems to have accrued a whole host of fairly unsavory connotations, until it first began to be used of a petty criminal or a criminal’s assistant sometime around 1900, and ultimately any disreputable person, an outcast, or an inexperienced person in the 1920s and '30s. 

Queen: 
The word queen apparently started life as a general name for a woman or a wife, however today that word is used for a male dressed like a female Here are a few more…. 

‘Euthanasia’ 
is a nice word for murder and it does not mean ‘Youth in Asia’ which is good. 

‘Gay’ 
once meant being happy However today those that use that word are depressed, reprobate and suicidal. ‘Pro-choice’ is nice word for murder 

‘Living together’ 
will not soften the word fornication 

‘Fox’ 
meant someone sly or shrewd not nice looking 

The word ‘goat’ today does not mean false brother Today G.O.A.T. stands for ‘Greatest Of All Time’ in their field. The acronym G.O.A.T. praises exceptional athletes but also musicians and other public figures 

‘I’m Irish’
 is just an excuse to justify getting drunk ‘God forgives everyone’ 

No repentance, NO forgiveness 

‘Same sex Marriage’ 
Is breaking what God has joined together 

‘Heavy smoker’ 
Is not someone over weight having a cigar 

‘It’s in style’ 
no modesty, save nothing for the imagination 

‘A little sin is fine’ 
Not true, remember, Adam and Eve took how many bites of that fruit before they were removed from the Garden? Moses hit the rock how many times and for that he NEVER entered the promise land and Judas sold out Jesus how many times? 

‘Everyone is Christian’ 
Lie, Catholics, Mormons, JWers, SDA, christian science are not Christians 

Democrat 
Jack-ass (that’s their logo) Did I miss any? 




I often get asked on the street what Church I associate with, mainly because I don’t preach theology. 

This same question was even asked of Jesus, when they said ‘By what authority do you do this?’ 

Once you say you are a Pentecostal or charismatic, everyone knows what you believe or don’t believe.

 Once you say you are a Baptist, everyone knows what you believe or don’t believe 

Once you say you are a Lutheran, everyone knows what you believe or don’t believe 

Once you say you are a Methodist, everyone knows what you believe or don’t believe 

Once you say you are Episcopal, everyone knows what you believe or don’t believe 

Once you say you are Presbyterian, everyone knows what you believe or don’t believe 

Once you say you are Oneness, 
everyone knows what you believe or don’t believe So to avoid being put in a box, I am just a BIBLE BELIEVER. 

Only two words, no denomination, no tradition, no odd theology, no pope or apostle that I follow and no radical ministry with a profound Church name. 

Like; 
‘First true holy of holies tabernacle of the most high love where victory lives being the true vine blessed star righteous congregation of the heavenly hosts where the Holy Spirit dwells in Acts 29 beacon church’ 

Just call me a BIBLE BELIEVER Now remember those fancy ministry or Church names should heed what Jesus said to the church of Sardis in Revelation chapter 2 
“I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead” 

They had a big NAME as if alive but were DEAD. He went on to say; 
“I have not found your works perfect before God…..repent…..You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments….for they are worthy…..He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments…..I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life….” 

Keep in mind this was a Church NOT a period of time but an actual Church in Sardis that had a powerful name but many, yet their names will be blotted out from the Book of Life.

THANK YOU Veterans

“But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves” 
Amos 5:26 

This past Sunday we stood outside ‘The People’s Choice’ awards in Santa Monica.




This golden calf is an award show that recognizing people in entertainment, voted online by the general public and fans. 

The show has been held annually since 1975, with the winners originally determined using Gallup Polls until the switch to online voting in 2005. 




The security at this event was not high as we were able to stand near the main entrance and we close enough to touch the vehicles driving 

“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, saying” 
Proverbs 1:21-21




At this event some TV stars will even drive their cars, but either way they needed to drive by our location




Location is paramount as per as there was only one way in and one way out

 “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




This is an interesting set of pictures. This white car was stuck in traffic and wanted to get away from the preaching but could not move. 




So the old woman rolled down her window to ask me to stop preaching because they were on their way to Church and did not need to hear my preaching.




She later said she was going to ‘mass’ to which I said ‘Oh, so you go to the church where priests molest little boys?’ 
Without hesitation she replied ‘yes, I do’




After a bit more preaching, she said ‘Fu** You!’ and rolled up the window. She was at least 70 years old. 


Nothing like a captive crowd. 




We continue to exhort these celebrities as darkness fell and these sandwich signs were used because they are right next to the windows when they pass us 

“Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God” 
Deuteronomy 32:3




Keep us in prayer 

“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints” Ephesians 6:18 




As we have the ‘American Music Awards’ in downtown Los Angeles later this month 



MONDAY WAS VETERAN’S DAY 




So I wish to THANK all Veterans who are willing to give their lives so we can be free and we are thankful to put one day aside to remember all of you today.

 This holiday started as a day to reflect upon the heroism of those who died in our country's service and was originally called Armistice Day. 



It fell on Nov. 11 because that is the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. 

However, in 1954, the holiday was changed to ‘Veterans Day’ in order to account for all veterans in all wars. 




“Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause.” 
Abraham Lincoln 

“Never was so much owed by so many to so few.”
 Winston Churchill 

“Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened.” 
Billy Graham 

“The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.” 
Douglas MacArthur 


I grew up with a military family that prayed often for our Country and government. 




My father fought in the Korean War, my oldest brother did over 20 years in the 82nd airborne and my second oldest brother did 4 years as a Chaplin’s assistant. 

As for me, I am just a boots on the ground street preaching grunt, who is willing to fight for my Country and die for my faith. 

Happy ‘Veterans Day’ to all of you that have given your lives for my freedom to be on that public sidewalk. 

THANK YOU! 

In case you wondered what the minimum wage was in 1969 for those troops in Nam, allow me to break it down for you. 




E-4 Basic $214.20 
Hostile Fire $55.00 
Foreign Duty $13.00 
Total paycheck $283.20 per month 

That was for being on call 24/7, 365 days a year which is…..$0.03 an hour….oh of course they had free meals and housing for that 3 cent on hour 

Hope this makes you THANKFUL for those that served, just keeping it real 


PURPLE HEART 

This is 95 year old John Barcelo, a local boy born in Watts and grew up in East Los Angeles. 

Johnny served under George Patton and fought during the Battle of the Bulge. He was given a number of metals for fighting in that theater, including the Purple Heart. 




I just visited Johnny about two weeks ago as his son comes to my Church. He still remembers doing action and is thankful to be alive. 

I contacted a number of local news agencies here in Los Angeles and hopefully at least one will respond and do a story on this local hero. 


MONDAY NIGHT 




We had a guest speaker at our weekly Bible study, as that night we had Dennis Agajanian back again to complete his teaching on the book of Revelation. 

Dennis is good friend and he ministers with Franklin Graham worldwide. We are honored to have him back as he supports us open air preachers. 

Before Dennis taught, I had a couple renew their wedding vows

 “…..What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder” 
Matthew 19:6 




Dennis Agajanian sang a few worship songs before he taught and he did a great job expounding on Revelation in detail and mostly by memorization. 

“Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness” 
Psalm 30:4 




This was the live fed that evening 


Of course after the study we had fellowship with each other. 

“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching” 
Hebrews 10:25 


JOHN 3:16 




Have you noticed that 99.9% of people that quote John 3:16, will only reference all the way to verse 18 and then stop. 

Rarely IF ever will they mention the last verse in that chapter; 
“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him” 
John 3:36 

How about preaching/teaching/witnessing the full character of God instead of a lopsided God. 



CONTEND 




Most Christians think ‘apologetics’ means apologizing for the gospel, rather than defending the gospel. 

“Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints” 
Jude 1:3 




I do NOT apologize for my God for destroying the world with a flood. 

I do NOT apologize for my God for raining down fire on Sodom and Gomorrah 




I do NOT apologize for my God for having me point out sin 

I do NOT apologize for my God for my Bible being true, unlike other books 




I do NOT apologize for my God for heaven or hell 

I do NOT apologize for my God for the need to live holy 




I do NOT apologize for my God for not being like other gods 

I do NOT apologize for my God for sending more people to hell than heaven 




I do NOT apologize for my God for saying salvation is only in Jesus the Christ 

I have publicly contended for each of those listed and more for 40 years, how about YOU? 




“for he vigorously refuted the Jews publicly, showing from the Scriptures that Jesus is the Christ” 
Acts 18:28 




Or are you on the ‘witness protection program’ where you keep your faith personal and private and just acknowledge Him on Sunday in Church.
