False gods and Idols

God considers false gods and idols so wicked, they are the first two of the Ten Commandments.
 
“Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments” Exodus 20:4-6
 
Last weekend in Venice Beach that city hosted an event called ‘festival of chariots’
 
Where followers of Krishna dance themselves into a frenzy chanting to their gods.
 
The event has 3 large carts filled with idols and a wax figurine of their guru and within these large carts, food is offered to their idols and they are fanned as these followers worship those graven images.
 
“The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of men's hands. They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not; They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouths”
Psalm 135:15-17
 
The picture below is the wax figurine in the center and he is taken from an air conditioned limousine and placed unto a float.  
After the parade he is placed back into the air conditioned limousine, so not to melt in the sun. 
 
 The followers fan that wax idol to keep him cool and they protect him like the President. 
 
 
Before the parade started we publicly warned the boardwalk of the idolatry parade coming and many defended the idolaters calling us ‘haters’ and ‘unloving.’ Yet we continued. 
 
“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
 
 
And of course the police were called to get us to shut down, as IF that has never happened before. 
 
  “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
 
As the false god parade passes us, we reprove them that there is only ONE GOD, not many gods.
 
Don’t like our preaching, you may be offended what God says.
 
“Cursed be the man that maketh any graven or molten image, an abomination unto the LORD, the work of the hands of the craftsman, and putteth it in a secret place. And all the people shall answer and say, Amen”
Deuteronomy 27:15
 
Their followers manifested like demons after hearing what God thinks of that venue and remember the same Timothy in the Bible that Paul wrote two letters too, was killed after he preached against a false god parade in his day.
 
After the parade passed us, we followed them on the boardwalk and reproved everyone watching and cheering the parade.
 
God says FLEE idolatry not support it.
 
“Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry”
1 Corinthians 10:14
 
We exhorted the crowd if they wanted to see the fruit if being a Hindu, go to India, where children will die of starvation as they feed a rat or cow.
 
After we followed the idol parade, we stood in front of the main entrance into their festival and continued to admonish everyone on breaking the first two of the Ten Commandments in spirit and letter of that law.
 
Where are the true followers of Jesus on the beach that day….Come out…come out….where ever you are….
 
“And they shall recompense your lewdness upon you, and ye shall bear the sins of your idols: and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD”
Ezekiel 23:49
 
At the end of the day, idolatry was rebuked and the sun worshipper at the beach were reminded to worship the SON of God. 
 
 For that we were ‘haters’ and accused of turning people off.....like we never heard that before?
 
“And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not” John 8:45
 
 
No doubt God used us to prick their conscience and for that we were not very popular on the beach that day.
 
" Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?"
Galatians 4:16
 
 
 
ISLAM in Los Angeles
 
The city of Santa Monica should be renamed Santa Dearborn or Santa Mon-istan with reason.
 
Recently I heard where Muslims flipped a track table from a Christian ministry at the Santa Monica Promenade, so we were called to this crime scene and hosted our anti-Islam banners in the middle of this Third Street outdoor mall.
 
Within minutes Muslims gathered:
 
And it appeared a few of them wanted to get those 72 virgins for killing us infidels as we voiced that Muhammad married Aisha at 6 years old. 
 
 That is a pedophile not a prophet. 
 
 Since when do 55 year old men look at a 6 year old and say ‘yeah you and me baby girl’
 
Many people will speak against Islam with a keyboard on facebook.
 
Many will speak against Islam via youtube.
 
Many will speak against Islam from a pulpit inside a Church.
 
But FEW will not confront Islam to their face with boldness and expose that religion for what it is.
 
Those banners were in their face and they were shocked what we spoke against Islam and their prophet as we were NOT there to find medium ground with Islam.
 
They reject Jesus as the Son of God and that is salvation pending;
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life”
John 3:16
 
Rejecting Jesus as the SON OF GOD is rejecting GOD
 
"Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also"
1 John 2:23
 
“That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him”
John 5:23
 
What does the average believe know about laying down their life for their brother? 
 
  Other than quoting a verse or reading a story, how many believers are willing to do that?
 
We had a number of us working as security to keep that preaching going and those banners raised and were willing to risk our lives for each other.  
 
We defused a number of angry Muslims as the crowd wanted blood and NOT the blood of Jesus
 
 We did not flinch nor balk to all their threats.
 
“For the Lord GOD will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed”
Isaiah 50:7
 
“Behold, I have made thy face strong against their faces, and thy forehead strong against their foreheads“
Ezekiel 3:8
 
Here is a short preach clip from Santa Monica

Philly was hot with preachers

Last week was the DNC in Philadelphia and while that party was electing a Jezebel.
 
The streets outside were filled with unrest and those who hate authority, from government, police, family, Church and God Himself. 
 
 The spirit of revolution was alive and walking the streets.
 
 
Of course one of the largest demonstrations was the right for everyone to smoke dope
 
So God sent street preachers to bring ORDER to those streets, if they listen or or not.
“He had said to them:" This is the place of rest, let the weary rest; this is the place of repose." But they would not listen”
Isaiah 28:12
 
Every day before those men hit the streets, there was a meeting at the Church who hosted us and that meeting kept everyone on the same page. 
 
At said meeting it was said what banners would be raised and what areas will be preached at.
 
The tram was used to get in and around the city, then back to the Church by night.
 
With marching orders given, the boots on the ground started the Bible invasion.
 
 
Location was found and everywhere those banners were raised and that megaphone blasted, crowds gathered within minutes.

 
 

 
A history lesson was given on WHY God had once blessed our nation.
 
America once blessed God.
 
However prayer, reading the Bible and the 10 Commandments were removed from our public schools, and with that, there was a price to pay or reap what you have sown.
 
Drugs, murder, abortion and sodomy among our youth soon waxed stronger as a result.
 
  “Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye know not”
Jeremiah 7:9
 
“Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein”
Jeremiah 6:16
 
At several locations the police wanted the preaching shut down but persistence prevailed and those outdoor sermons continued.
 
Like Paul in the book of Acts who used his Roman citizenship (Acts chapters 22, 23, 25), those open air preachers reminded those officers of our rights.
 
To which law enforcement kept the thin blue line from having our banners attacked. 
 
 
Walking the streets, the police followed to keep the sinner at bay.
 
The preaching was done in the heat for hours by a number of those willing to speak for God and remind our nation to turn to God.
 
“Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet my people have forgotten me days without number“
Jeremiah 2:32
 
 
IF people had issues with those street preachers in Philadelphia, they would have had great issues with Malachi as he did not promote a ‘God loves you’ message to his theater.
 
“Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation”
Malachi 3:9
 
And as you can see, our outdoor congregation was not your typical Sunday Church going type folks
 
These people have no excuse on Judgment Day as to MUCH is given MUCH is required.
 
“Because my people hath forgotten me, they have burned incense to vanity, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths, to walk in paths, in a way not cast up”
Jeremiah 18:15
 
America will be judged much harder than other nations, as we have grew up with the gospel and most of these unbelievers had religious families. 
 
  Even jesus got rebuked for his dope smoking, fornicating, pro-abortion and pro same sex marriage lies.
 
As with our method of preaching, it does provoke many conversations, prayer and even salvation.
 
 As several sinners cried out to God after seeing the banners and hearing the preaching
 
 
Need to see a visual of Ezekiel 3:9
 

“As an adamant harder than flint have I made thy forehead: fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house”
 
 
 
 
 
On the last day of the convention, it rained and so all those rebels who said their wanted a revolution in the streets ran inside to protest. 
 
So the street preaching went in interior preaching mode to continue the exhortation.
 
 
The pictures used were taken by Mikhail Savenko, consider having him take photos for your ministry.
 
 
Filming and editing is also available
You can contact him for details at
 
 
 
At night they preached at bars and nude clubs.
The brethren also found Westboro Baptist Church who are ‘protesters’ and not preachers and even considered ‘hyper-Calvinist’ among the Calvinist camp.  This group has been known picketing the funerals of dead military and consider every calamity as a judgment of God for the sin of homosexually.
 
GOOD NEWS in the news
 
 
Of course the news media did countless interviews and here are just a few pictures taken from the articles, as those banners went beyond the crowds around them.

Thank you for your many prayers as surely God answered them.
 
“We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the LORD fulfil all thy petitions”
Psalm 20:5
 
We pray that God use us to as a loud voice to bring America back to the God of the Bible
 
 
Please continue to pray for us as we take God’s word to ears that need to hear and eyes that need to see, where no missionaries dare to tread.
 
Next weekend we preach at a Hindu parade and stand against the Islam
