SAG AWARDS REPORT:
I MUST ADMIT, I AM INDEED A HATER….
I MUST ADMIT, I AM INDEED A HATER….
“The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate”
If you are called a hater, wear it as a badge as you are in good company, remember king David a man after God’s own heart was ah hater as he said;
“Ye that love the LORD, hate evil”
“I hate them with perfect hatred”
I am guilty of HATING SIN. If loathing wickedness is wrong, then I am guilty as charged.
I am guilty as being created in the image and likeness of my God and abhor iniquity.
Here’s a few more ‘haters’ and ‘bullies’ of righteousness;
Moses used the word ‘abomination’ countless times, so Moses the meekest man on earth was a HATER. We read there is “A time to love, and a time to hate” as the writer of Ecclesiastes was a HATER. We find Amos as a hater when he said; “Hate the evil, and love the good” and who can forget in the book of Revelation chapter two we read where Jesus Himself (Red letters) said “I hate” not once but twice. I guess Jesus is a HATER too.
One might finally agree that God does hate sin but will take issue with God hating people.
Well one again God’s ways are not their ways, as per Psalm 5:5 where God hates the “workers of iniquity” not just the sin but the very person. The worker himself. We also read in Romans “As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.” Paul writing how God hates the actual person Esau, not just his sin and in another verse he wrote; “Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor that which is evil.” Many Christians have a counterfeit love for not hating according to Paul who by the standard of the modern Church today would be a HATER of not just sin but actual people.
"Cry aloud, spare not, lift up your voice like a trumpet, and show my people their transgression”
SUNDAY was the 18th annual SAG Awards in downtown Los Angeles at the Shrine Auditorium and God was there to shine His light on these fallen ‘stars.’
What are the SAG awards you ask?
The ‘Screen Actors Guild’ is the union for actors who work in film and digital theatrical motion pictures and television programs, commercials, video games, industrials, internet and all new media formats. The Screen Actors Guild is affiliated with the AFL-CIO and nominations for the SAG awards come from 4200 randomly selected members of the union. The full membership is over 121,000 in the film brotherhood. The Golden Calf is awarded to those in both motion pictures and television programs.
Once again at this event everyone who is anyone in Hollywood is there to flaunt their stuff and be honored among their own. With black limos everywhere, screaming fans on the sidewalk, cameras from all over the world snapping pictures, the stage was set for God to use us and try to get their attention and remind these little gods of Jesus. They however seemed to be detoured by their own fame or only cry out to God in a time of need as this past Sunday was their day to feed their egos on the Red Carpet. But not before they saw our signs.
HERE WAS THE LAYOUT.
I stood on the corner as each limo must turn by me to drive towards the Shrine Auditorium and when the celebrities walked out from their limo they were met with a crowd of onlookers and with 4-5 banners raised above the sidewalk crowd. At my location, a number of the black limousines rolled their window down to give me the finger, with a few thumbs up. Because the film industry has a large Jewish population, there was a few comments like; “Jesus was a Jew” to which I said “was”…..what is He now a Muslim, get it right, Jesus IS a Jew. Another comment was “we love the book of Hebrews” to which is said Oh, you now believe in the New Testament? And the most common response to my banner was “we are the chosen and we love Moses” to which I asked then where are your animal sacrifice as he commanded? No response.
One guy stuck his torso out the window and yelled “I masturbate to kiddy porn” and many took pictures of my banner. For years these people get photographed from everyone but on their own personal cell phones what do they have? They have pictures of us preaching to them. There was a guy standing next to me with a clipboard and he was in contact with every limo driver as each limo had a number on the windshield and some limos had special instructions. He was shocked to witness those celebrities that felt obligated to yell at me. The brothers in front of the Red Carpet were able to witness to the crowd as well as the fallen stars when they made their out of car appearance. At the end of the day the God of the Bible was there and it is recorded in heaven, with many opposing Jesus the great editor of their sin.
We will have four more Hollywood Award shows to preach at before the granddaddy of them all, the Academy Awards in late February.
SOMETIMES A PICTURE MIGHT INSPIRE YOU TO VIEW THINGS FROM A DIFFERENT ANGLE. THIS IS WHAT EZEKIEL 3:17-18 LOOKS LIKE IN BOTH SPIRIT AND LETTER…..
“Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand”
…..ARE YOUR HANDS CLEAN FROM THE BLOOD OF THE WICKED OR DO THEY LOOK LIKE THOSE BLOODY HANDS? PUT YOUR HANDS TO THE PLOW AND GET TO WORK.
“And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil”
STREET PREACHING CAN BE AS ANNOYING AS THE WARNING LIGHTS AND BEEPING ON YOUR DASH BOARD, YET IF IGNORED…..
….IT WILL COST YOU YOUR ENGINE, TRANSMISSION OR MAYBE AN ACCIDENT. THOSE FLSHING LIGHTS ARE INTENDED TO GET YOUR ATTENTION AND THOSE DELIBERATE WARNING SOUNDS ARE MEANT TO GET YOUR AWARENESS, FOR A REASON. But most will look at the blinking light and look away or even try to hide it with gum and that beeping noise, well you can turn the radio up and to try to drown out the sound or after a while you get use to the blaring noise. Yet whatever happens, the manufacturer warned you and a breakdown is in the near future. You did see the flashing lights and you did hear the buzzing sounds and just so you fully understand, AAA will not rescue you from hellfire. So when people tell us we are irritating and our methods are nauseating, well, that is like music to my ears. As I am doing what our maker wanted us to do. Sound the alarm and BLOW THE TRUMPET.
“Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be calamity in a city, and the LORD has not done it?”
Friday I am heading out to Indianapolis for the Super Bowl, and the day after I return home I will be at the ‘Grammies’ in downtown Los Angeles. Then do the a few more ‘Hollywood Award’ shows like the EMusic awards, NAACP Awards, ACE Eddie Awards and later that month do my 29th year at Mardi Gras in New Orleans. After New Orleans the ‘Red Hot Chili Peppers’ concert will be in town for two days so we will be outside and lastly the sacred Academy awards at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood will be surrounded with banners and street preaching.

A faithful Brother from Texas sent me this article from New Orleans which has our names written all over it. Later this month is Mardi Gras and we might just be starting our jail ministry that time. To read the whole nola.com story click the link below
Bible-thumping on Bourbon Street at night barred by ordinance
“…..Although the law, sponsored by Councilwoman Kristin Gisleson Palmer, spelled out the justification for the crackdown on aggressive panhandlers, it offered no explanation for the blanket ban on letting people assemble on Bourbon Street at night to voice their views on politics or religion…..that religious demonstrators, sometimes with large signs and bullhorns, have been showing up on Bourbon Street on Friday and Saturday nights, yet police have taken no action against them….Watermeier wages an annual battle with the small group of anti-gay campaigners who show up during the Southern Decadence festival, using bullhorns and picket signs to convey their message that homosexuality is evil…..”
NOW TO BE FILED UNDER ‘INTERESTING
WELL, JESUS DID SAY TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO EVERY CREATURE, so what’s the problem?
Or perhaphs this is one of the two shebears that was used when little children who mocked Elisha saying “Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head” and so God had moved two of these large animals rip apart 42 children instead of a time-out. Lesson to be learned….don’t mess with God’s anointed.
