HOLYwood

The ‘altar of a street preacher’
 
Is not very glamorous, not made with the finest of wood or gold, no little lamp to illuminate your notes, no podium stand to hold your Bible, no message of prosperity or come as you are, no praise music to serenade and no money is placed at our feet for a blessing in return. 
 
  Rather, we need iron gates to keep our congregation from attacking us, a gulf is needed to separate the sinner from the saint, police surrounding us for our safety, a message of repentance for forgiveness given and debris placed at our feet as a ‘thanks’ for our message. 
 
  Now IF you look closely you will see 2 dozen eggs on the street, the police moved in and removed the person who tossed two of them and placed the carton of eggs away from my congregation.
 
Oh, the ‘altar of a street preacher’ is beautiful to those who wished to be used in this manner.
 
Now this was a sodomite parade in Hollywood and many decided to stand around us than enjoy their big day and remember they say ‘no one listens to us’
 
This is the Big League of open air preaching
 
 
 
LAST SUNDAY:
 
Thank you for your prayers as we were the boots on the ground to take the Word of God to ears that need to hear the holiness of God.
 
“Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord”
Hebrews 12:14
 
Last Sunday we preached at the sodomite parade in West Hollywood, this was my 35th year at this venue of warning these sinners of their sin and hope in Jesus to save them from their sin.
 
When I arrived I noted we needed more room, so I made a phone call to the officer I work with to get the metal barricades moved out. 
 
 
The barricades were moved and we had more room.
 
This area is NOT a free speech zone that we are placed in, this is the location I have been standing at since 1980 for this event and the Los Angeles Sherriff department accommodate us. 
 
 They know IF there is a hot-spot on the parade route, this would be the location so with that, they are ready and do make a presence around us.
 
 
“Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you”
2 Thessalonians 3:1
 
This vehicle had cameras and was parked in front of us all day, watching and recording.
 
It did not take long to get a crowd once the banner were raised and the preaching started.
 
This is what I looked like after only 15 minutes of preaching to my congregation that day. I was squirted with tubes of suntan lotion.
 
That DID NOT stop my preaching, I did not yell ‘hey stop that’ I did not call for the police to stop them, I did not let this interrupt my communication of what God needs to say about the sin of sodomy.
 
“Why dost thou shew me iniquity, and cause me to behold grievance? for spoiling and violence are before me: and there are that raise up strife and contention”
Habakkuk 1:3
 
Most if not all have heard of Jesus and that He rose from the dead on the third day, this is not something new. Most if not all believe in a god of their own creation, after their own likeness and the only character they know of God is love and forgiveness.
 
  So they were reminded of the full character of this Holy God.
 
“It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God”
Hebrews 10:31
 
And one would think that with the double barricades around us and a heavy police presents, that would prevent any problems. 
 
 This does nothing as a few were detained, this sodomite came over the barricades and tried to attack the sound system we had.
 
Law enforcement continually needed to move the crowd back and move the barricades forward because the mob would move them towards us wanting to get closer. This should not be anything new, must I remind you that in the story of Sodom (Gen.19) the homosexuals were smote with blindness at Lot’s house and that did not stop them at the door. 
 
 Like a dog in heat, they still tried to get into that house and some thing never change.
 
Once the banners were up we had, we had a number of speakers who lectured and answered questions. 
 
The crowd did not respond well because we did not embrace their sin. They were reminded of Sodom and Gomorrah as an example for them.
 
“Many are my persecutors and mine enemies; yet do I not decline from thy testimonies”
Psalm 119:157
 
Repentance was proclaimed, a word the Church does not use and maybe for reason. The beam is in their eye and they are unworthy to remove the mote from another.
 
Everyone around us was led to the Lord that day, now what they do with what they saw and heard is upon them as we were soul warning.
 
“Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences”
2 Corinthians 5:11
 
 
They cannot plead ignorance. 
 
 
“Lift ye up a banner upon the high mountain, exalt the voice unto them, shake the hand, that they may go into the gates of the nobles”
Isaiah 13:2
 
We had children there to expose what a same sex marriage cannot produce and of course they yelled at us for bring children. 
 
 But never say anything to those people who bring children to watch the parade, not to mention most that argued have no children and are pro-abortion.
 
 
And of course those in parade stopped and responded to our banners and preaching, as those street preach groupies came to stand around us with their signs.
 
But our signs dwarfed their signs, as they could read our banners from a block away.
 
 
“Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah”
Psalm 60:4
 
 
Even Jesus came by and spoke against us
 
 
One cannot be in Hollywood without interviews, they had questions and we had answers
 
 
At the end of the day, I decided to stop preaching and it was time to make our exodus, this is where things can explode if not handled properly.
 
Most Christians will grab their Bible, tracts and just walk away, but we are not normal Christians. 
 
 Without that thin blue line, we would have been killed years ago.
They stood by as we loaded our vehicles and shut the street down so we can drive away without problems and remember we are the haters
 
 
 
After a long day we drove to my house, thankful we have all our fingers and toes and do pray that someone may reap from our labor as the Lord gives growth.

John 4:38 reads
“I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours”
 
 
Next weekend there will be about 17 cities having sodomite parades or rallies and those events will have Christian resistance with banners and megaphones. 
 
  I don’t know how much longer we can rebuke this sin, without getting arrested for some hate crime. If there is a ‘hate law’ against sodomites, we may be first to one day get hauled off. 
 
 If one cannot do it now with our freedom, what will they do if it may cost them jail time?
 
“I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work” John 9:4
 
Keep us in your prayers as next weekend I will be in Chicago for that yearly sodomite parade. We will preach downtown on Friday, Saturday preach on the South side in gangland and Sunday the shame parade.
Brethren, pray for us”
1 Thessalonians 5:25

SL,UT (Salt Lake, Uath)

Where are the Watchmen today?
 
Come out….come out….where ever you are….
 
"Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice”
Isaiah 52:8
 
“I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence” Isaiah 62:6
 
Last weekend a few of us gathered in Salt Lake City to publicly preach against the sin of sodomy.
 
Now IF you think that Utah was a conservative state, think again. Very liberal and most people I spoke with were atheists from the LDS Church, they will defend evolution, trust in science and they question the Bible as truth. 
 
 The day before the ‘pride parade’ we preached outside their fest.
 
"Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?"
1 Corinthians 1:20
 
Remove the evolution and science argument from the atheist and the reason they do not believe in God, is due to the hypocrisy they have seen in their Church or family growing up. 
 
 98% of atheists I have debated had a religious upbringing and witnessed much error.
 
This is the very reason we have faith in JESUS and not men. My hope is in that cross and those words of Jesus not a religion.
 
I too have seen much error and hypocrisy within the Church, but I will not toss the baby out with the bathwater. We have bad police officers that does not mean the entire police department is corrupt. 
 
 We have bad politicians, that does not mean I will leave America and live in Iran. 
 
 There are bad doctors, but that should not stop sick people from going to the hospital. 
 
  The issue of the day was sodomy and the question I asked was why a loving God would consider such sin an abomination and reprobate, not to mention His forgiving tolerance with Sodom and Gomorrah. 
 
 Yet, these people who grew up on religion believed God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because they were inhospitable as per Ezekiel 16:49.
 
 
The book of Jude clarifies that argument as this book with only one chapter reads; 
  “Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire”
 
Of course, the atheist will then argue is the Bible really inspired words of God and should we trust it. The public debate continued on many fronts as we earnestly contended for the faith as per Jude 1:3
 
“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”
 
If you have an question, we have an answer and within time, it will all rotate back to that BIBLE.
 
“For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent”
1 Corinthians 1:19
 
 
Sunday was the city parade in Salt Lake so we arrived early to get prime real estate.
 
Remember location, position and location is the key as per Proverbs 1:20-21
 
“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”
 
“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 within minutes of standing on the route, the police showed up and watched our backs. For that we are thankful for that thin blue line.
 
“Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you”
2 Thessalonians 3:1
 
And what’s a parade in Salt Lake City without Mormons?
 
They too were rebuked and double judgment for believing in Joseph Smith and justifying sin.
 
This yearly parade is almost larger than any LDS event in Salt Lake and where was the Mormon prophet? He was a no show again, unlike prophets in the Bible who confronted sin with a stern rebuke.
 
Most in the parade stop in front of us and do their kiss-in to express the ‘love they have’ and call us ‘haters’ for speaking out against them.
 
  AIDS/HIV is fruit from their ‘love’ lifestyle and God hates a ‘proud look’ let alone a pride parade.
 
“Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins”
Isaiah 58:1
 
After the parade, we assembled at the main entrance to the fest and continued to declare what God says about this sin. 
 
 We did not preach ‘have you ever lied…..what does that make you….have you ever stolen something….what does that make you?’ 
 
  It does not take much to gather a crowd once the banners are raised up. 
 
  The bold preaching forces many to stop and ask questions, as the preacher preaches.
 
Of course not everyone was happy or ‘gay’ with our method and message
 
Things heated up and got physical because someone was convicted and felt the need to respond.
 
The police arrested 2 and gave a citation to another. The citation was given to someone who threw a bottle of water at us. 
 
 With two arrested, one was arrested for punching a street preacher and was hauled off to jail for spitting on one of us. 
 That is a felony in Utah. 
  
 
The young man in the wheel chair below got up and wanted to attack me as I preached but the police moved in.
I say again, he got up, he was healed (just for a moment). Eat your heart out Benny Hinn
 
 
At the end of the day, the sinner was warned, God’s Word was announced, we made the local news and my hate mail from Salt Lake is coming in full steam.
 
The picture below represents the sin in this city well, this person does not know what he is with a tattoo that reads ‘stop making sense’
 
It appears that happened to him years ago.
 
 
This Sunday we will be in Hollywood preaching against that sodomite parade, keep us in your prayers as we believe there is hope for everyone, with condition “Repent and Believe’
 
 
 
 
 
GET ON FIRE!!!
 
 
Are you BURNING for JESUS, come join us in July and get on FIRE in Montana.
 
 By sending a check you are confirmed and I trust you have done that.
 
Reserve a room with meals for that price or bring a tent, park an RV.
 
We need a accurate body count for meals to be prepared, so don’t wait until the last minute.
 
  Bring the family, take a vacation, you are not alone in taking Jesus to the streets, meet other likeminded men and women.
 
Great line up of speakers inspired by God to inspire you to good works.

“Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay”
Jeremiah 20:9
