BOOTS ON THE GROUND:
As many in our nation will be spending ‘Labor Day’ with friends and family, having a Bar-B-Que or swimming in the pool, we will be laboring behind enemy lines in New Orleans at an event called ‘Weekend of Southern Decadence.’
They make no bones about it with that name and this is why God will call us from the bullpen to handle this event. Sinners come to this city for one reason, SIN. They work at their sin, they make time for their sin, they will travel to sin and this is what God says to those who labor in sin.
“The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity”
This was the same venue that had 9 of our men arrested last year for a new city law saying we could not speak about religion at dark on Bourbon Street. We fought the law and the Lord gave us victory, as that new law has since been removed.
What will we face this coming weekend, who knows?
“As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as
sheep for the slaughter”
Please keep us in your prayers as the weather is hot and humid, the hours are long as we preach day and night with banners raised. We will bring light into that dark city. We have counted the cost and are more than willing to put our faith into action.
We will once again uphold the holy standard of God publicly to a dying world.
We will have a group of about 12 men flying in and put their body into harms way for the Lord. We will work with local street preachers and three Churches in the New Orleans area, not to mention those of you who will pray for us.
“For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe”
1 Timothy 4:10
And people wonder why God will send cruel fiery preachers to such a wicked event, answer:
“An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him”
LAST SUNDAY WE PREACHED IN VENICE BEACH:
And it appeared to be event for women who wish to go topless on the beach because men can so why not them? So it was called march for ‘gender discrimination’ or in previous years this event wanted to go topless to draw attention to ‘breast cancer.’
But what most people on the beach don’t know is that this event is done by a cult called ‘Raëlian Movement’ and they almost make
the Mormons look good.
They believe in UFO’s and within those UFO’s are a created species of extraterrestrials, which they call the Elohim. Members of this species appeared to be human and when having personal contacts with the descendants of the humans. They say many religions know this but use words like ‘angels’ and ‘demons’ however they are extraterrestrials.
This religion includes a bit of Buddha and a dash of Jesus, not to mention others. And of course their god is all loving and non-judgmental. And they use topless women as a form of evangelism and justify it under certain topics like ‘gender discrimination.’
“There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death”
They believe in world peace, sharing, democracy and nonviolence, also sexuality plays a large role (as with any cult) but they use it to evangelize. As theu carried signs that read ‘Free you breasts’ and ‘Equal Topless for all’
And for people that are non-violent pictures prove otherwise as they tried to push and block us from preaching against the cult.
And of course one can not have an event like this and not have street preachers there. Today they want to go topless, tomorrow they will want to go bottomless and not telling what they will want next week?
You knew you were in Venice Beach as women wanted to go topless in public and men wore bras in public. I know….I know…only in California.
Of course LAPD was there and even removed a few of them. We did have much liberty with banners and ‘truth-horns’ as one year we were cited and on our day in court the judge dropped the charge but this year LAPD watched us.
How I despise those two words and I understand what those words mean in concert but those words should be removed from our vocabulary.
The Bible speaks of warfare, body armor, swords, battle, enemy and soldiers. Therefore Christians should never retreat, we should attack sin.
We need to charge and confront sin. Assault those demons and overcome them. Christian retreat, why not ‘Christian Offensive’ and strike, smack, beat, thump, wallop, clobber, hammer and pound that darkness.
Have a blessed weekend and remember David was caught in sin with Bathsheba for one reason. There was a war going on and that warrior was not on the battle field.
Lesson: stay in the fight.
“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine”
Will you be in the Atlanta area next month, as October in Peach City is always nice. Come for the fellowship, training and teaching as
