Trying to ‘Occupy’ a space in Los Angeles as Grace and Law confront each other
“These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also”
After making no small stir at the Los Angeles City Hall, this LAPD officer is saying that everything was nice and quite until we showed up and then there was complete confusion everywhere. We find this same wording in the book of Acts when the Apostles preached at a city;
“And brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city” Acts 16:20
“took unto them certain lewd fellows of the baser sort, and gathered a company, and set all the city on an uproar, and assaulted the house of Jason”
“there arose no small stir about that way”
“And the whole city was filled with confusion..”
“When the uproar had ended”
“And there arose a great cry:”
If you are not causing no small stir when you preach, you just might want to reconfigure what you are saying. Are you turning your world upside down when you proclaim Jesus, as this is fruit from outdoor preaching in the book of Acts.
Which as you know the book of Acts has no ending, therefore those acts we read about in that book should still be active today.
Here is a series of pictures when a few of us preached against that ‘Occupy’ group that protested in everything in every major city. Well, we protested them in Los Angeles.
“Let a cry be heard from their houses, when thou shalt bring a troop suddenly upon them: for they have digged a pit to take me, and hid snares for my feet”
Once the preaching started we were rushed as the started to pull down our banners and remember these ‘occupy’ demand ‘free speech’ and love to demonstrate, just don’t do it to them.
“If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest”
Here brother Mark is defending his sign as these ‘peaceful protesters’ attack him.
“For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform”
This sinner understood the concept that we defend our property as after a few attempts of trying to pull Marks banner, he was pulled and detained for police but of course other ‘Occupy’ members pulled him back as he ran back into the mob.
“For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head”
Soon LAPD moved in and tried to bring order and of course we were the ones that were considered ‘out of order’ as we tried to bring law and order to ‘Occupy’ but they recoiled against anything with authority.
As we were being led away by police, Dale noted his banner in the trash can where one of those ‘peaceful protesters’ ripped from him and threw it. This group is known to be anti-authority, from parents, schools, laws, police, government, Church and God Himself and that day they were true to form.
“Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?”
After we were moved away from the ‘Occupy’ camp of course they still followed us screaming and yelling, so the police considered it an ‘un-safe’ area and asked us to move across the street.
“Then said he unto me, Son of man, these are the men that devise mischief, and give wicked counsel in this city”
This next picture shows that they could not pull the banner from Brother Mark before the police arrived, so they spray painted on it. That day they almost broke my arm, almost ripped apart my megaphone and pulled down two banners. One was found in the trash and the police returned the other. These protesters should occupy a place in jail and if they do not repent they will surely occupy a place in hellfire.
Jesus said "occupy till I come” and that we do in Los Angeles as we have for over 30 years nationwide. We attack and occupied an area to promote the standard of our God. Liked, hated, arrested, cited, removed and even attacked for our faith. Never the less, we have occupied the hearts and minds of sinners, that on the Great Day they c
an not plead ignorant.
A PICTURE IS WORTH A 1000 WORDS
Need a visual on Proverbs 29:27?
“An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked”
Here is street Preacher Petar from Norway looking at sin with pure abhorrence and disgust in his eyes. King David said; “I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies”
And remember that was a man after God’s own heart. Need something from the New Testament; “Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good” Romans 12:8
Back on March 20th an article came out regarding a United Methodist church in North Carolina that elected to stop performing marriage ceremonies for ‘straight couples’ until same-sex marriage is officially legalized as law of the land.
Well that Church had a guess speaker as Brother Nolan came by to preach against that Church on ‘easter Sunday’ as the timing was good as certain days like this is where more people will come to Church than any other Sunday. So if someone was just a visited, they were warned of this Church.
The real Church service was on the sidewalk as this place of worship has lost the true method of holiness and the founder John Wesley would have joined these men outside or might have made a whip and removed everyone and broke a few things inside the wicked sanctuary.

Brother Nolan as per Psalm 8:2; “Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7OyJtfmW8k&feature=youtu.be
