THE 83RD ACADEMY AWARDS

We all know the story of Moses coming down Mount Sinai with the 10 Commandments
and saw the children of Israel dancing around a golden calf and later claimed this idol just appeared from the fire……yeah right. Well that party continued on Sunday and it sanctified by those same worldly people who claim to believe and trust in God. The image on the idol and the dancing faces have changed but the same spirit that deceived the children of Israel is alive and lived today this past Sunday.

This is the modern day ‘Golden Calf’ as the world watches those people known as celebrities walk on a hallowed Red carpet into a sanctified temple and praise themselves after receiving this divine golden calf. Security was as tight as when the president in town, because if Allah wishes to wound the world this event and these people would make a statement. So traffic must be detoured, limos searched, sidewalks shut down, police everywhere, snipers on top of buildings, bomb sniffing dogs walking and free speech hindered.



The Eyes of America were looking at Hollywood on Sunday as everyone who is anyone in the film industry was at the Kodak Theater. Actors, actresses, producers, directors, writers, editors and stage hands. The fashion show outside the theater was beyond worldliness and fleshly as designer dresses that hug their bodies with $5,000 shoes and trendy hand bags were displayed, the jewelry flaunted was off the charts, not to mention the makeup and hair that paraded itself. Verily it was one massive exhibit of vanity and America loves it.

This is exactly what Paul warned Timothy of when he wrote:
“In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with modesty and sobriety; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array”
-1Timothy 2:9

And what Peter writes:

“Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel”
-1Peter 3:3

The Lord had a good location for us as honoring Proverbs 1:20-21, on the corner of Highland and Sunset Blvd. We had a gauntlet of Christians at this main artery where the majority of black limo’s were stuck in traffic preparing for the Red Carpet. Every corner had preachers with signs, banners, truth horns proclaiming a Hollywood message to those behind the dark tinted windows. I accused the actors for being ‘paid liars’ and ‘memorizing pages of script yet not memorizing Bible chapters.’ We each took turns reproving these human icons a block and a half before the Red Carpet and once again it was these little gods who felt obligated to take pictures of us rebuking them with our signs and banners with their cell phones. The sun was a hindrance, so I could not tell who was riding and who responded but God saw and it is recorded in heaven that these untouchables had the kingdom of God in their face. A few waved and a couple flashed the finger from the back seat of these stretch limos. Which only meant one thing, they heard the preaching and saw the banners. The movie ‘The Kings Speech’ was the big hit inside but outside The King of Kings was rejected and inside most winners rarely will thank God, yet they use His Name in vain often in their films. No one thanked Jesus for winning, yet the words ‘Jesus Christ’ are used in concert often in their movies.


Now what IF ‘God’ or ‘Jesus’ is nominated and wins Oscar, who among Hollywood would receive the award on His behalf? Annette Bening, Nicole Kidman, Javier Bardem, Jeff Bridges, Amy Adams, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale, who….maybe Martin Sheen?
Well I have prepared a speech just in case I need to walk on stage and I would accept the award For God.
As I pound the head of Oscar off from the pulpit, I would say; “I would like to introduce you to yourself tonight. You people are selfish, greedy liars, you are drug addicts, drunkards, homo loving, God hating, who think that because you recycle you are fit for heaven. You save the whale and murder your children. You love mother nature but detest Father God. You promote no smoking but your temple is defiled with sin. You live like invincible gods yet commit suicide. You are consumed with saving the rain forest and planet but abandon your very soul. The WAGE of your sin is DEATH and Shirley Maclaine is incorrect, there is only ONE appointed time to die than the Judgment. You as with all mankind must Repent and believe in the Name of Jesus, coupled with a lifestyle to match that belief. Or you fulfill Titus 1:16 “They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and to every good work reprobate”
….about that time I would be escorted out of the theater with my headless Oscar.

“For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more”

Are we not going to be required more in America? Churches everywhere, Bible stores, Bibles in hotel rooms, Christianity 24/7 on the radio and television, evangelism in every possible approach.

America NEEDS A WAKE UP ~ REPENT message preached.

STREET PREACHING WORLDWIDE


“GO YE INTO ALL THE WORLD AND PREACH THE GOSPEL”


PREACH REPORT FROM FRANCE

Hey brother I just wanted you to know that we are praying for you and your ministry. And we appreci ate what you do for the Lord. It was over a year ago, when I first wrote you via email and wanted to do something bigger for Jesus, and since I have formed a team of street preaches here in France. And we are covering some ground. Of course I started street preaching back in 89 in Florida. I even street preached with the swat team with Gerald Sutek now serving in Romania. I been in France now 21 years; I know a good brother near Paris Bill Hanson a veteran street preacher who supposedly has preached with you.
Greetings to all back home, we are home safely after 600 km on the van, on a weekend blitz in Bordeaux a city with 235.000 souls.



The event kicked off Friday evening where we street preached into the wee hours of the night; as we marched across the most lively district of Bordeaux. "Rue Sainte Catherine”. We were run off by 3 terrace owners in 3 different cafes, including the security at McDonalds. But over all we got the victory and the word went out. Brother Desmond who is originally from Ireland was able also to preach at an Irish Pub in English. On the side of town. That evening we had several folks touched by the gospel with 3 people who came forward to learn more and asked for tracts etc. Saturday morning the rain came, we strolled through the market place in one of the dangerous neighborhoods in Bordeaux, near the Chapel Saint Michael. This district is all Moslem with shops and restaurants. We heard about one man who held a Bible stand there in the same market was threatened and his child even murdered. After a good spell the officials from City Hall told us we could not stay and we ended up standing on the side. But instead of being chased off by the police we were greeted by the some Gypsies believers. Who were blessed by our presence, preaching and even encouraged that we took a stand for Christ.


The video link below is some pics my wife took from the market there which was called "Capucins" meaning hoods.

Saturday afternoon we headed back to Saint Catherine to what appeared to be a crowd of thousands of people who walked the main road which ran about 1km with boutiques and fast-food joints. I used my larger banner for the occasion. That reads "Lisez la Bible Jesus ou L'enfer". In English it says: Read the Bible Jesus or Hell? One guy who took a picture as we passed by preaching told me, he could read the banner from almost 1 km away. Patrice invited 3 other Christians by telephone that drove 150 km, to work with us that afternoon. My wife stayed in the van and prayed for us and the rain also held off.
Their were a handful of people moved that afternoon by the message and several others took tracts. The banner which also mentions my website pulled in an extra 77 hits from Bordeaux this weekend. Amazing when you consider France is the graveyard for missionaries and conversions are few. Sunday morning we attended the Church of Brother Patrice and I was invited to bring the message. Praise God we were blessed with good fellowship and 2 people afterwards who wanted to join our team. We are thrilled and exciting by what God is doing with our team.
The Pasteurs of the D├ęsert will be meeting next month in Bayonne France and in June in Nice, Marseille, Nimes and Toulon.
Please pray ahead of time for these events; until then...

STREET PREACHING IN INDIA WITH A WARNING SANDWICH SIGN



FROM COSTA RICA

This is Ricardo Araya Mendez from San Jose, Costa Rica publicly proclaiming and publishing the Jesus of the Bible. Ricardo has been witnessing for 17 years and open air preaching with banner for one year. He has preached at death metal music concerts, film festivals, gay parades and pagan celebrations.


When asked how he started street preaching Ricardo writes:
“I saw some Reformed Baptists in Europe that used a pulpit on the street, and they had a friend Ruben Israel, looked him up to see and was amazed, wow how nice, caught my attention and I said I can do that the same way to bring the gospel and that was the push I needed and I did so”

NO SEMINAR NEEDED, NO ROUND TABLE MEETING WITH THE ELDERS, DID NOT NEED TO BUY BOOKS ON THE SUBJECT, NO NEED TO TAKE A COLLEGE CLASS ON EVANGELISM, WITHOUT PAYING MONEY TO BE TRAINED AT AN OPEN AIR BOOT CAMP. JUST MOVED BY THE HOLY GHOST TO PROMOTE THAT NAME JESUS.

“You have given a banner to them that fear you, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah”
-Psalms 60:4




FROM NORWAY

This is Brother Petar who comes to the United States several times a year to learn street preaching, banner making, sandwich sign making and now does all the above in Norway. Arrested several times in Oslo but after a number of years of street preaching, he and his raised banner is now a common site in Norway. Lives a very humble life, self supportive, married to God and works well with others for the sake of the Gospel.




THIS IS BROTHER PETAR PREACHING AGAINST SIN IN PUBLIC


PETAR A SINGLE MAN LIVES FOR GOD AND IS WILLING TO STAND
ALONE IN AN ENTIRE COUNTRY



FROM THE PHILIPPINES

Brother Mitch based in Manila has trained many Christians to confess Jesus in public, as director of the YWAM School of Evangelism. This former US Marine turned Evangelist Preacher in 1984, has traveled and preached in 19 countries and 50 of the 50 States in the USA. To visit his website: http://www.gomitch2.com/


You can read his book titled ‘HARASSING HELL’ after five years in the writing, Mitch's book is a direct punch in the jaw of modern-day wimpy evangelism! You cannot read this book and still be convinced that "Open-Air Public Preaching" is just not used or does not work anymore today! Every excuse you've ever had to NOT PREACH OUTDOORS OPENLY IN PUBLIC is annihilated through the use of Scripture, History, and Personal Experience.

GOOD OLD FASHION STREET CORNER PREACHING AS PER IS.58:1

NO DOUBT THIS BROTHER WAS TAUGHT NY MITCH

FROM SOUTH AFRICA


Brethren walking the streets with banners and proclaiming repentance at a street event with banners raised and truth horn blasting as salt preserving the standard of a holy God.




BROTHER RENE WITH SANDWICH SIGN, BIBLE RAISE AND VOICE LIFTED

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” -Matthew 7:13-14


FROM UGANDA


We just started a Bible Believers chapter of Uganda last week in Kampala the capital and the largest city in Uganda, pray for brother Joseph Senoga Richard and his team of street preachers. We are in process of sending them signs and christian shirts. Below is a note from our newest member from Uganda:

Dear servant of God, great to hear from you, hope you everything is well with you all! Amen.

I read with great delight the ministry report, I read your website and see the exciting and great work that you are doing in the kingdom of God. I was very much blessed to see that what you are doing is the same of what God is doing through us here in Uganda East Africa, and I’m very much blessed and willing to work together to advance the kingdom of God and build the body if Christ here on earth! Plundering hell to populate Heaven, as we draw as many people to Christ for eternity! Amen.

I’m married to Ruth and have two children now, and have orphans and vulnerable children whom I do take care of. These are children we do come a cross in course of our outreach, starving without help and support, they need food, school supplies, clothing’s and medical care.

God called me at an early stage of 6years old and I was raised in a family full of witchcraft and in 1999 that is when I joined ministry when I was 19 years old, and started evangelizing door to door evangelism or personal evangelism we planted many churches, in eastern part of Uganda, since from that time, I have been in ministry reaching out the gospel of our LORD JESUS Christ up to today. Now I have a church that I opened up in the city of Kampala in 2005 that im leading and it’s not a big church for we are about 40-50 members, and we have planted we have other church branches. And our heart desire is to win souls to Christ and plant more churches, and in this we do have a team of youth preaching on streets, open air crusades, conferences, seminars in schools, a team of women who go to hospitals, market places, villages and in remote villages, door to door evangelism, etc to preach the gospel and most of the challenges we do have are, lack of resources, like tracts, bibles, speakers like horn speaker, and public address instruments for outreaches, transport, projector and the laptop. In open air we do arrange meetings in an open place where we put speakers and invite many people to come mostly the non-believers to come and hear the gospel, and through these we have won many souls to Christ in every month we do hold such meetings at times two or more when we have the possibility of doing it. And we do use a laptop and a projector to show Jesus' film, Moses' film and the projector is very effective in bringing many people to Christ, we have used it through hiring and we have seen how effective it is.
Women go every Sunday evening, street preachers we do it every day that is Monday to Friday, and in the evening we are at church for prayer meetings and praise and worshiping God and Bible study.

We do also need a camera to take photos a digital and video camera to take photos to share with our friends to show them what God is doing right here in Uganda and Africa as whole.

We keep on moving in and out preaching the gospel and transport at times is a problem, and at times we fail to go to other areas because of failure to transport ourselves to go and preach the gospel. So we do our preaching openly or in public because our mission is to win people to Christ.

So when I learnt about what you are doing, I felt in me to ask you to see if we can be able to join you and be part of your ministry here in Uganda, we are very much interested in working together with you under one umbrella. Thanks.

May the LORD God bless you all1 amen.

In Him
Joseph Senoga Richard



MAY GOD MOVE YOU TO PROCLAIMING HIS SON, ONE ON ONE OR ONE ON A THOUSAND, GO preach the GOspel.
