The healing POWER of GOD

"Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed”
Psalm 6:2

A BIG Thank You for your air support last week for an injured street preacher in New Orleans, he is doing find considering getting thrown out from his vehicle and having his spine spliced together. 





He is walking and is growing stronger daily. Grants father (preacher Ray) was there to watch over him as once upon a time preacher Ray and Holy Hubert would race on the campus of Berkeley to preach to all the hippies in the 1960’s.


Grant had 100 staples on his back after surgery


This was where the accident occurred, he was turning his large UPS type truck into that driveway when a smaller car speeding hit him from behind.

The driver never tried to stop, as there was no brake marks on the street. 

After she hit Grant, his truck went on two wheels and almost flipped over, and that was when he was rejected from the vehicle. 

He had his safety belt on but removed it to get ready and press the code number and open the gates to the storage units.


This is where he landed. 

His head landed on the grass and stopped and rolling atop the red curb, had he landed on the sidewalk he would have had massive brain injuries.

The storage unit had cameras and there is footage of the accident and he being ejected. 



Continue to pray for Grant, pray for his pain and strength as this will be a long healing process but he is moving well considering what happened to that body.

“The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness”
Psalm 41:3



As you may know he left his business in Portland and moved to New Orleans to help that ministry that always gives us room at the Inn and is a beacon to feeding homeless in that community. 




Those who are downtrodden with drugs and demons come to get set free.

While I was there I painted and worked around the ministry, one of the men there worked with me and talked with demons often. 

Those demons did not manifest around me but he is getting ministered too there. The ministry has two vans and those vans needed repair, so I did what I could to refurbish them while caring for Grant. 


Here is a young woman who was a dancer on Bourbon Street and said she would get angry when she saw those Christians preaching and witnessing, she is now on the program. 


She was a heroin addict and over dosed well over 20 times, even ‘clinically dead’ and was brought back to life a few times in the hospital. 

She did WHATEVER to support her habit and I do mean whatever for that drug. 

What a testimony that God is saved her and most Churches do not know how to minister to someone like this. We spent time together and she was ministered too, please keep her in your prayers as with her past she will have an uphill battle but she is willing.


Here is another Christian I met, she is saved and filled with the Holy Ghost, she came out to join us as we fed the homeless. 

She walked in and was so happy to meet me, she has watched all my videos and like many others she thought I was over 6 foot tall 



Still also has a past as she was also a dancer on Bourbon Street and gave her life up to drugs and sex. She grew up Mormon but was kidnapped, raped at 16 and was ready to be trafficked outside the United States for sex….she is now saved, married and works with trying to get women off the streets.

She loved the video where I was outside the Comet Ping Pong pizza in Washington DC which is known for being a pedophile hang out and no doubt God is using her to minister to women that are raped. 

I will be back in New Orleans for Mardi Gras and will be doing an interview on her. As were feeding the homeless I heard my name called and it was from someone I did not recognize. 


This person is now a local minister was there to help feed the poor but he had a past. 

He graduated from the program and was delivered from drugs back in 2002. He remember me teaching to them several times during my visit to Mardi Gras and Decadence and that impressed him to continue in the faith. 



He thanked me and he never forgot his roots of living on the streets and wondering when the next meal will come from, so he was there feeding those in need.


The ministry home in New Orleans is used for Church services, children ministries, feeding the poor, deliverance in a very bad section of that city. 

Gangs, drugs and crime everywhere yet they do have a deal of respect for that building. 

The picture below is Grant talking to neighbors as he is well known to be a white guy in a black neighborhood.



This is sister Jan, she runs the place and has been a beacon in that city for over 30 years, she loves the street preachers and this is where we are having our SOAPA New Orleans Convention in early February 2018.



Details coming soon. 


This is Miss Evon, she is a neighbor who works in the kitchen and can that woman cook a meal. Because I was leaving that afternoon she made a special breakfast for me. 



She will feeding us during the conference and just that is worth the trip to Naw Orleans



Have you seen what Bourbon Street looks like today?


No this was not the Judgment of God nor did ISIS visit that sinful street, believe it or not that wicked street has a sewage problem. 

Who says God does not have a sense of humor, as waste from primarily feces and urine is now plugging the French Quarter.

Bourbon Street has been a stench in the nostrils of God and now we know why.



Here is a BLAST from the PAST:


This is an oldie but goodie taken in the early 1980’s I was in my early 20’s and was preaching at a concert.


Soon confronted by security who told me I needed to leave or get arrested. I argued and told them to call the police, after the police arrived I was told I was within my rights to preach.

Where were you in 1983 and WHAT were you doing?



Q & A with Brother Ruben


QUESTION:
Brother Ruben I believe the King James Bible is inspirited but I was tracting over the weekend at a local mall and an atheist who was raised in a Christian home said the Bible is filled with lies and contradicts itself. I asked him for one verse and he gave me these two verses that I could not answer. He gave me Proverbs 26:4-5 and said which is it, answer a fool or do not answer a fool?

MY RESPONSE:
Proverbs 26:4 reads “Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him” …..and the very next verse (Proverbs 26:6) reads “Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit” They BOTH are correct and a spiritual man will know when to answer that fool and when NOT to answer that fool. 

It could be the same question and I may not answer someone yet answer another A spiritual man should judge the motive and reason to answer or NOT to answer as per 1Corinthians 2:15

“But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man"

So that verse gives me liberty to answer and NOT to answer.


QUESTION:
I was also told that Jesus said there were some who will not die till Jesus comes and all the disciples died. I could not answer that one.


MY RESPONSE:

I believe the atheist was quoting the end of Matthew 16 where Jesus did say; 

“Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom”

Something happened right after that statement, it was the Transfiguration and I believe THAT is what

He was referring too After six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John up into a high mountain and was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.

There appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with Him, is THAT not the kingdom of God?

Moses who represents the Law Elijah who represents the prophets AND Jesus the Christ, see Matthew 17:1-13 If you need confirmation verses, you will find the same statement said with the Transfiguration that followed. See Mark 9:1-8 and Luke 8:23-27.


QUESTION:
He also asked me if the story of Jonah was real, he called it a fishing tale and no one can live in the belly of a whale three days.

MY RESPONSE:

No doubt atheists know Bible and understand the two books that get questions more than any other is the Genesis where God created the world in six days and the book of Jonah. 

Satan HATES those books and I say the book of Jonah is mocked because its not just a story of God wanting to destroy a wicked city for their sin but there is more.

Jesus shed light on Jonah when He said;

“For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth”
Matthew 12:40

This book represents the crucifixion and after three days he will RISE from the dead. Is it any wonder satan will dislike that book and atheists will mock it?


QUESTION:
Brother Israel I am not called to preach like you but I am used to witness one on one. Were you called to preach out loud?


ANSWER:


We are ALL called to preach, witness, warn, hold a sign, pass out a trach, acknowledge Jesus in many ways. IF you can witness, you can preach.

Preaching is much like witnessing ONLY LOUDER!

Do not limit the Holy Ghost, it is very common within the body of Christ for people to say 'God has only called them to witness one on one' or 'just to pray for people.' If you can talk to one person, why not raise the voice to 100 people?

Again I say do NOT limit the Holy Ghost, He may have you do MORE!!

PRAYERS REQUESTED

Sunday we preached outside another Muslim event in Orange County 

 This was a fund raiser for Palestine and they are expected to get mucho deniro for a dinner and to hear from speakers inside like Linda Sarsour.

Yes, she will be a speaker at this blood–money raiser, as she was the person behind the 2017 Women's March in Washington DC the following day after Trump’s inauguration.

Remember the pink hat march and rally, yet that religion does not give rights to women.


We stood outside with anti-Islam banners and preaching against Muslims and why Israel should take that land from Palestine. 

It was for Hebrews and not to be given.

Lest they because like Esau and sold their birthright, God hated him (the very person) for that act.
“As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated”
Romans 9:13

Linda Sarsour rides the coattail of women rights but women in certain Countries ruled by
Islam have not rights.

Once again we used a sister from our Church to show what Muslim men are allowed to do if their wife or wives to a good Muslim are rebellious.

The beating continued over and over as our dead sister screamed in horror (she was well padded so no harm was done) and a number of the hotel guests watched and took pictures. 

Most Muslims just quickly walked into the hotel but Linda Sarsour did come outside to see and hear. 

She refused to answer questions but watched from outside the lobby.

I continued to preach against women having rights Islamic countries where one can consistently find human rights violations. 

In the 34 Muslim countries can anyone name one of the Muslim nations where that is not occurring and she speaks against America


No doubt police, Feds and other government agencies were inside along with a
few radical Muslims.


Our goal was not to find medium ground with Islam but expose that wicked religion as they reject Jesus as the Son of God. 

AND THAT WE DID!!



Join us in Lust Vegas for our annual conference



Hosted with a local Church, the speakers are lined up to edify and exhort as the theme this year in sin city is ‘Burning For Jesus’ and ‘On Fire for Jesus.’

PRAYERS REQUESTED



Street Preacher Grant Michael was struck from behind and thrown from his vehicle in a freak motor vehicle accident on Saturday, November 25th 2017 that has left him with severe traumatic injuries.

He suffered several broken ribs, fractures in his neck and back.  He had spinal surgery at a local hospital in Louisiana.



Grant has been receiving excellent ICU trauma care and is at the beginning of a very long and painful road to recovery. 

He was released from the hospital this weekend but was rushed back to the hospital on Monday with problems breathing.



Family and friends have asked how to help, so we've created this gofundme fundraiser. Please consider donating, as all money raised here will be used to support Grant's continued care and recovery.







More than anything the family covets your prayers for healing, restoration, and strength for the road ahead. He is a single man I have known since he graduated high school, he left Portland earlier this year to help a ministry we are involved in because that ministry was ready to close its doors. 

He is being visited by several out of State street preachers to care for him during this time.

We do pray that the Father restore him and continue to use him as his father preached with Holy Hubert back in the 1960’s and his vision is to continue that family tradition.



I will be leaving for New Orleans on Wednresday to visit him and work to keep that ministry afloat as Brother John Williams from Ohio will be there after I leave.  Here is a video clip was taken from Brother Ryan in North Carolina who came to watch Grant right after the collision, enjoy and prayer are welcomed:
