America welcomes the pope
And so did we as our banners declared it so.
“And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven”
Thank you for your prayers as last week with that air support we were the boots on the ground in three cities to preach the God of the Bible to the pope and his followers.
When we arrived in Washington DC we were told that our plane could be delayed because the pope was arriving at the same time but God had other plans for that appointed faceoff.
Here is a video at the airport landing and getting ready for the week. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yiufPbH26No&feature=youtu.be
Here are a couple of news stories from our preaching:

To say security was extreme for this an would be an understatement, as there we local police, undercovers, FBI, FEMA, secret service, ATF, state troopers, border patrol, TSA and military, just to name a few. Gates, fences, barricades, metal detectors, streets closed were everywhere.
I’ve preached at several presidential inaugurations and never seen security like that. Me thinketh the pope is concerned about what happens to him if he were to die.
No purgatory and there will be no saint Peter at the pearly gates. Many Catholic I spoke too said they were upset because they could not see or get near their leader as many stood for hours on the street for nothing. They wanted to ‘feel the experience’
And this is where we came in. We were used to preach the God of the Bible to a religion that has outgrown the Bible and has more faith in tradition and works than the blood of Jesus.
They have gone beyond the cross and “It is finished” with their tradition. Giving the ‘good news’ with the news as the photo below was taken from ‘Getty’ and published on countless newspapers worldwide, that not everyone agreed with the pope.
And with that they pictured us.
Every morning we started off early, making sure all our tools were in order and ready for service, megaphones had fresh batteries.
Then after a morning briefing, we walked to the subways and rode the trains in every city.
Like most businessmen taking the trains to the office, we were there for the Fathers business and our office was outdoors, coupled with long hours.
We knew it was going to be almost impossible to get next to the pope, but with God all things are possible. We knew it would be a miracle to get near him because of all the security and his route changed often. However the Master did give us a crumb from His table. As we did get a chance to lift our banners at him on his route 3 times in two cities (Washington DC and Philadelphia) and no doubt he saw.
We had much liberty preaching in DC. Our Capital building like our Country is under heavy construction.
As they try and repair damages to our landmark our Country continues to set a course on destruction. We reminded everyone that it is time America bless God, not God bless America.
“Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof"
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land”
2 Chronicles 7:14
The pope spoke at several venues and we tried to stand outside all of them.
Location, location, location, we looked for prime locations where we could preach as per Proverbs 1:21-22
“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”
Preaching to religious people can be difficult because everyone is saved and knows God, yet 99% do not know the 10 Commandments in order.
Essentially Commandment number Two.
“There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness” Proverbs 30:12
“They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate”
99% of these Catholics know more tradition than scripture, yet they will tell you it was their Church that gave us that Bible.
“This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me”
LAW and GRACE.
Everywhere we went in DC the Metro police was there watching and taking note of us. We had much liberty to say things that had men centuries ago, would have been put in jail, tortured and sentenced to death for speaking against the pope.
For hours we stood and contended for the faith in public and we let our LIGHT shine before men.
“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee”
The preaching provoked great one on one conversations all day, with priests and their followers who believe their god is the only god and their church is the only church.
“But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?”
“Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity”
Each day before we headed out, we stopped by the White House and deliver a message to our President. Of course the secret service came out to find out just who was echoing that personal message to our leader, as we had much liberty to deliver.
“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God”
After that was done, I continued to exhort Obama, if he wanted to go to hell, GO….but don’t take the entire nation with him.
I continually reminded Obama that he placed his hand on a Bible when he was elected, that same book that God calls sodomy an abomination and reprobate. Abortion, murder, marriage is with male and female and Jesus the Christ the only way to heaven.
It appeared he had enough and ordered everyone outside the White House removed at least a block away.
Snipers atop the roof stood watching us as secret service cleared everyone from the White House.
No doubt he heard our message as our sound system echoed over a block loud and clear.
Many get offended with our style and message, so we remind them of Matthew 18:7;
“Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!”
After DC we arrived in New York City, where we took a fairy into Manhattan
Once on Manhattan we met up with Brother Scott and crew.
After fellowship we did the subways in New York, as we had several locations and that is the only way to get from point A to point B
Location is paramount as per Proverbs 8:1-3
“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”
We arrived at our first location and set up shop to warn the innumerable Catholics walking and standing of their heresy. Of course they said they knew God and we should preach elsewhere.
Everyone in New York is saved or fine.
“This is thy lot, the portion of thy measures from me, saith the LORD; because thou hast forgotten me, and trusted in falsehood”
Brother Philip from Canada (above) joined us to speak out against the pope.
The police made a showing and told us to stay behind a certain spot and this time it was the Catholics behind the barricades.
The preaching from the brothers incited great conversations
Later that day the pope arrived in Harlem and we were there to meet him. I found other entrances on a map and had banners sent to cover as much real estate as we could, because bring the pope in certain places was not public information.
NYPD talked to us regarding our poles for the banners and the white shirt (below) called in to someone about what to do and that someone on the radio said to leave us alone we are fine, just watch us. And that they did.
Later that day we went downtown and preached to the hords of people in Manhattan
New York was over and we drove to Philadelphia that evening for the last leg of the trip and to work with a different group.
The picture below was part of our New York team.
At Philly we started off each morning with a briefing to keep everyone on the same page as per Matthew 10 and maps were read as to our location coupled with entrances and exits….then…
It was more walking and subways…
Once at these locations, banners were set in place
And the preaching begun
As stated, when preaching to religious groups, they believe that Jesus rose from the dead and believe they are going to heaven, so we must point out where they have outgrown the Bible.
We must uncover their tradition and lies they have been told. Many Catholics believe babies born are born in sin and if that child dies, they do not go to heaven. This is the reason they baptize babies. We reminded them what Jesus said about children, “for such is the kingdom of God” When was the last time a baby lied, stolen or worshipped another god?
They were exhorted, warned and reminded the masses to know the God of the Bible.
“Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet my people have forgotten me days without number”
At the end of the day, they will give an account of what they saw, what they heard and the tracts they received.
Tracts and booklets are good tools but most of the time they are tossed on the floor.
This is WHY God commends us to PREACH, which is to cry out and proclaim, because what they have heard in the ears, they cannot pled ignorance when they stand before God.
“The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it”
Even banners get your message across, unlike a tract that someone can say ‘No’ and banner is in their face.
Below is a picture of a women who spent 2 days on the street, just to see the pope. She was starting to question God because she has had miscarriages and issues within her marriage. We spend over an hour with her, she wept when she found out she can talk to God outside Church.
She was hopping to see the pope but got two seasoned street preachers instead. Kevin from New York did a great job witnessing to her and after many questions and tears, we prayed.
Many deceived followers, stood for hours on the street and never saw their leader but they were moved because they were in the same city as the pope. They called it ‘the experience’ we called it ‘bewitched’
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears” 2 Timothy 4:3
On the last day in Philly, some 1.7 million Catholics came to mass and eat what they believe in the actual body of Jesus.
But not before they encountered us as we were there to greet them as they lined up by the thousands to get ushered in their mass and later after their service, we were there to say good bye to them as the real sermon was given outside on the street.
All done with no offering, no choir singing, no ears tickled, no idols to worship, just the raw unedited message that their Church has more bloodshed than Islam. They have a history of heresy and tradition and we made sure they were Catholics and not Christians.
Wonder who 1Timothy 4:1-3 is speaking of:
“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth”
Only Catholics priests are not allowed to marry and it is that religion during lent that does not allow you to eat meat on Friday, is that what Paul was saying?
Banners and street preachers were everywhere
Brother Kevin dressed like a priest and many Catholics needing to take a second and third look to see if what they are seeing and hearing was true or did their eyes deceive them.
You want power over people, just put on a clerical collar and they will follow you right into the pit.
We had much liberty in the city of ‘Brotherly Love’ and we loved the masses with TRUTH as per 1John 3:18
“My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth”
The Lord was able to have the pope see our banners 3 times in 2 cities. They kept his route stealth for security reasons but the Lord give us insight and timing and he could not miss our banners flying high above the crowd.
Another mission accomplished, as we did the best we could with what we had to work with. Below was a group shot from Philly, all came home with stories of what God did
Thank You for your prayers as Psalm 20:5 reads:
“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”
We fulfilled that verse as those banners were raised and those petitions (prayers) were answered.
Salvation only in Jesus and not religion was made paramount in public. We now pray that God send other laborers to reap that harvest as 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”
