THIS IS SOMETHING YOU MIGHT SEE IF YOU LIVED DURING THE OLD TESTAMENT!
Well the 34th annual Hare Krishna parade known as the ‘Festival Of The Chariots’ have danced its way into the streets of Santa Monica and Venice Beach this past Sunday. There were chanting, banging tambourines and raising their hands, all while working themselves into a demonic frenzy in public. Now, you know you are involved in a CULT if one can walk outside in pajamas at noon crying ‘hare Krishna, hare Krishna’ with a haircut that looks like the rear end of a horse, no? This event not only had hundreds of people dancing in the streets but three fully decorated, four-story chariots or floats filled with idols and a wax figure of their now dead guru that they fan with big leaves so he does not melt from the sun.
The boardwalk on Venice beach is filled with onlookers and those that worship the sun as we publicly reprove this open display of idolatry and exhort the masses of Jesus THE Christ.
“Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little” -Psalms 2:12
I remind the crowds if you wish to see the fruit of this religion, “Go to India….where one can witness children starving to death, as these Hindus feed a cow while their children daily go hungry.” I said “IF YOU WISH TO SERVE THE COW……put it in between two buns, with lettuce, tomato, onions and cheese…..as we in America call that A CHEESE HAMBURGER!!!”
THAT’S HOW WE SERVE A COW!!!
We preached to the parade as it passed by us then we follow behind the last float reproving those on the beach route. At the end of the parade is the Krishna fest where they feed the beach people nuts a fruit as we stood outside the entrance with banners lifted exposing this God forsaken cult.
The God of the Bible hates idolatry so much that the FIRST TWO of the Ten Commandments are NO other gods and no graven images. Any Bible believing Christian on the beach that day should have been offended at the open idolatry. For these idols have ears but will never hear a prayer, these idols have eyes but can not see anyone, hands and legs but will never move. Someone had formed these idols, therefore these were MAN MADE gods.
“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……” -Exodus 20:4-5
“For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God” -Exodus 34:14
“And go not after other gods to serve them, and to worship them, and provoke me not to anger with the works of your hands; and I will do you no hurt”
“Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry” -1Corinthians 10:14
“Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen” -1John 5:21
Only in California can one see a Christian in a cow costume preach and argue with Hare Krishna’s at the beach with a police escort…..gotta love this State.
The carts/floats in the parade are pulled with large ropes not with mules but people, remember these groups believes in reincarnation, and if you eat an animal or mistreat an animal you must come back in the next life as that animal. I preached Hebrews 9:27 to them over and over and over.
“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”
just hate any authority.
Not only did we contend with the issue of multiple gods but we openly debated issues of witchcraft, fornicators, masturbation and those who smoke marijuana. As Venice Beach is today is as Berkeley was in the sixties under the umbrella of love. Where anything goes, as all roads lead to heaven, free love, drugs and booze for everyone, new age is the religion of choice, hippy attire is the norm, music and what is considered art everywhere and women with hairy armpits dance around under the sun. Many of these people are anti-government, anti-police, anti-school, anti-Church, which can lead them to being an anti-Christ as they
At the end of the route, we had a young man join us as our personal security guard, he stood in front of us keeping anyone who approached us ay bay and just before we walked away. Joel and I were joined by an ex-Krishna that gave his testimony on the Jesus of the Bible. At the end of the day, verily the beach heard, saw and had literature given of a living God that sent His only begotten Son into the world.
Here is youtube clip that shows the parade, the floats and the dancing Krishna’s
With this clip, one can see why God hates idolatry as it is filmed inside the route
THESE PHOTOS WERE TAKEN FROM HEATHEN WEBSITES
“An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him” -Proverbs 17:11
These are some of the idols that were on the floats, and in front of these synthetic icons the Krishna’s light candles, burn incense and place food. Flowers are placed at their altars and these sacred flowers are tossed to the crowd below, as Mardi Gras beads.
I’m sure glad these are just flowers thrown at me rather than rocks.
Not many years after the death of Apostle Paul, Timothy whom Paul discipled won a martyr’s crown at Ephesus preaching to idolaters. It was on a feast day of the goddess Diana celebrated on January 24th (which on a side note that date is MY BIRTHDAY and also when Steven and I were arrested in Mardi Gras for ‘Disturbing the Peace’ in 1987 it was after we preached at the Diana parade).
The temple stood in Ephesus as Timothy entered into the ungovernable crowd and exhorted these souls, deprived of the light of truth, to renouncevain worship and embrace Christianity. He was martyred that day by a mob pagans who were offended in his message and stoned him to death.
OH, HOW WE READ AND MEMORIZE THE EPISTLES TO TIMOTHY, WE QOUTE FROM THEM, CLAIM TO BE INSPIRED BY THEM, WE POLISH HIS TOMB BUT WHERE ARE THE YOUNG TIMOTHYS OF TODAY THAT ARE WILLING TO DIE LIKE HIM???
