A number of years ago the Lord gave me the opportunity to preach to Elizabeth Taylor. The event was the ‘gay awards’ (yes, only in California) which is their homo version of the academy awards. I did not know she was going to be there nor did I recognize any sodomite actors and those homosexual music artists who arrived waving to the squealing crowd. But our heavenly Father had given us a good location to stand which was right next to where the limos were dropping off these fallen stars to walk the pink carpet. Then about a half hour into my preach with banners raised, the crowd roared as Taylor walked out from her limo. I called her by name as she turned to face me and she was scolded for being an abomination as per Proverbs 17:15 for justifying the wicked and her perverted lifestyle.
The rebuked lasted at least a minute but maybe seemed like an hour to her as she first looked shocked and looked around as if to say that somebody needs to stop me for saying that. Her countenance later changed to a proud look of, don’t you know who I am….you can’t talk to me that way….how dare you. The sodomites around me were beyond angry as they look to Taylor as the Catholics adore Mary. So it was noted that day in heaven that she had been boldly warned and judging by her fruit it does not look good for her.
“And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?” -1Peter 4:18
If it is with difficulty that the righteous are to be barely or scarcely saved, do we think Elizabeth Taylor can just walk in with her blue eyes? Do you think God will be impressed with her once beauty and glamour? Do you think heaven will rejoice to see her two Academy Awards for best actress? I don’t think she can fund raise enough money to bond her out of the predicament she is in right now. What a blessing to live in this city where these little gods can walk openly among their followers, only to warn them of their horrific ethics and standing before a holy God one day. This is the very reason we preach a “prepare to meet thy God” message to these people that feel invincible after being praised and loved by the world. WE ARE THEIR REALITY CHECK!
Will I preach out in front of the funeral of Taylor? No, why preach to the dead, Jesus said regarding such “Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead” so I recommend that we do not preach at funerals of sinners or our military, but to the living as God as He allowed me to do to Elizabeth Taylor before she was room temperature.
“I indeed baptize you with water to repentance. but he that comes after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear. he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire”
Brother Scott single man that supports himself and is not ashamed of the Gospel, contacted me regarding joining us for Mardi Gras last year. As he had preached on the streets of New York and will soon be launched to ‘event preaching.’ He yoked up with us and preached 10-12 hours a day without complaints. He open aired, carried a banner and worked security when things got heated. Brother Scott worked well with everyone and will not compromise the standard of God and never flinched when confronted by the heathen. He now travels out of the Big Apple and assists with other events in other cities. We have prayed for laborers and God has produced, with fiery men like Scott. So without further ado…….
I was only 20yrs old feeling like a convicted murderer on the run, just a matter of time until I'm caught. Why did I do it?......But what did I do?...I thought to myself one summer night in the year of 2001. Somebody told me "God is moving" Then I remembered one day arguing with a Christian lady saying that God understands "SOME" sins. My arguement had to stop when that Christian lady told me that God understands that Christ died for "ALL" sin. Well that night of conviction was God convicting me of my sin of unbelief and giving me the grace to repent of it. That all triggered a life of witnessing in and out of the city of New York. Passing out tracts, one on ones was my passion. Then one day I was on the Staten Island Ferry coming into Manhantan, while on the boat I saw a brother not just passing out tracts but "Proclaiming out loud the gospel of Jesus Christ" That introduced me into "STREET PREACHING".
Well the city of New York is huge so it took me a couple of years to travel to other cities. From Long Island, to Queens to Brooklyn to Staten Island to Harlem to the Bronx to Yonkers I decided that Im going to make a stir on the streets of New York. From 2001, my life has been about working, going to church and street preaching. Well in the eve of 2009, one connection led to another and I was introduced to Bro. Larry K. and Bro. Ruben for the 2010 Mardi Gras. Now the 2010 Mardi Gras definitely made a impact on my spiritual life in the Lord, Not so surprised by the wickedness of Mardi Gras, because in NY you see just about some of everything but I was impressed by the fellowship of 15 different street preachers, not perfect, but likeminded with one purpose GIVING OUT A LIFELINE TO HELL BOUND SINNERS!
I probably was a little bit surprised for this years Mardi Gras (2011). As the weather was a little warmer, sin was greatly manifested, Yeah it wasn't in your face, it WAS ON YOU, KNOCKING YOU OVER! The tension and the hatred of the people was great! But where Sin abounds, Grace much more! If one can live in sin and be proud about it, one can also live holy and be proud and loud about it! I praise God for the love of Christ.
