Hare Krishna Parade Report

Brother Jeremy from New Mexico is putting more videos together for ‘Street Preaching The Series’
Another video from the Hare Krishna parade below.
This past weekend we preached in Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Watts, south central Los Angeles and skid row in downtown and on the last day did Venice Beach. We had the Brothers from New Mexico coming in to join us for a weekend in Los Angeles and we had a full docket to work with.
Thursday night Jeremy, Josh, Diego and Eric arrived into Los Angeles as Mark and I housed them. 
By Friday we headed out to Hollywood and preached with banners raised in front of the Chinese theater and the Kodak theater for the first stop of the day. The crowds there are large all day long as everyone is looking down on all the stars in the sidewalk.
Little did we know we were in the Perfect Will of God as on that same day Hollywood announced who will host next years ‘Academy Awards’ and it is none other than the sodomite Ellen DeGeneres. What timing as THAT was the very day we were in Hollywood and at one point stood right in front of the place these ‘Awards’ will be given.
  Unbenounced to us, yet moved by God to do so. One does not need to know the Will of God to obey why God has sent you.
I did notice a lot of security outside when we showed up and LAPD walked by a few times than normal but thought nothing of it as we were preaching and answering questions.
The demons however were manifesting in front of the Kodak Theater as one girl on drugs punched and slapped two street preachers several times. And one guy with snakes wrapped around his neck stood around us boasting in satan, but that is a regular day for street preachers.
These spots on Hollywood are main water holes where people from all over the world come to see the handprints and foot prints of these Hollywood gods.
But the timing for the Lord to use us on that day Hollywood announced Ellen DeGeneres was unique Sometimes you can be in the WILL OF GOD and know nothing, as for myself I do not need to know details to get my job done.
After Hollywood we preached in Beverly Hills on Rodeo Drive where if you need to ask how much something is, means you can not afford it.
Police were called and after we talked, nothing was changed we continued to preach with banners raised on four corners. This is a hard city to get converts because the Gospel is free and these people are used to paying for everything.
“For the love of money is the root of all evil which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows”
1 Timothy 6:10
Money itself is not evil, we need that to survive. But it is that love of money that is evil as one will do whatever it takes to make another dollar. Steal, lie, mislead, kill or sell their own body for a dollar and that covetous spirit is the root of evil.

On Saturday we went to a few places that did not have much glitter and gold as the day before, we went to areas considered filled with crime. We started preaching in Watts at the ‘Imperial Courts’ projects and we were their wake-up call.
We drove right inside the heart of these projects and raised our banners and started to preach with the megaphone. It was after 11AM that we started, which would be 5AM ‘Project Time’ as a number of these people were out late last night and just now getting up. 
One by one they came out and at one point we had a couple watching us then sat on the curb to listen as if they had never seen a Christian before.
“He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich”
Proverbs 10:4
Within these buildings are generations of families who know of no other way to live but join a gang and sell drugs and fight and kill for a piece of real estate they don’t own. Many of these people are poor but not ‘poor in spirit’ as per Matthew 5.
Kids came by to get tracts and the projects echoed with “If you live by the sword, you will die by the sword.” They were exhorted them against drugs, murder, fornication and covetousness. But the response that started to get a reaction was when they were told Tupac was in hellfire.
That was the ‘golden calf’ they dance around and that one was personal. It was obvious that no one preached a hard message to them on those sidewalks and we reminded them via an echo that there is a bullet out there with
someone’s name on it. 
As we left the Imperial Projects, they threw water balloons at my SUV, which I would rather that than bullets any day of the week.
After that we preached inside another project in South Central which resembles more of a state prison and stood inside the center with banners raised and preached with a megaphone as we had much liberty and LAPD will not come
by that area, with reason. 
There we again exhorted everyone that they were not going to get saved based on the color of their sin but the blood of Jesus and that they were in bondage to sin. One woman who appeared to be a prostitute walked by and we talked. She said that she was just praying and heard the preaching and walked towards the preaching. She was high on ‘crack’ and knew she was not right with God.
  Another person came out to meet us a seemed very nervous and after a conversation he said we were LAPD. It appeared, he was sent out to find out who we were as we just boldly walked into gang turf and set up shop. 
He wanted to know who we were and later told said why didn’t we have a black guy preaching with us. I answered, because there is not a black person around here with any Godly character to proclaim truth. He later told me that he agreed with Mark preaching, we just need to get someone with skin color to preach in the projects. 
It appears must people knew God loves them and that God can forgive them but the word ‘repentance’ has been omitted from their vocabulary. Everyone is saved, everyone knows God and no one knows Bible. The local Church has raped these people into believing in a God that will accept you as you are. God demands all men to ‘REPENT’ which means He does not want you as you are.
The last leg of the day was skid-row in downtown Los Angeles.
“Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise”
Proverbs 20:1
And I do believe every believe should see this street first hand as one can see how this verse is alive and how deceiving it is. I wonder if the first drink these people had, they ever considered it would take them to live on the street with a colony of outcasts due to circumstances within their control.
This is a city within the city for homeless people, where bodies are scattered all over the sidewalks and crime with disease is everywhere. We set up shop across the street from a park and started to preach a sober message that drugs and booze is not your best friend. Don’t believe us, look around and see where this lifestyle has taken you.
Many of these people will go to Christian missions for dinner, a shower and a bed. Hear a message of love and forgiveness and in the morning go right back into the drugs and booze. We preached that we were not there to give out hot coco and a sandwich. We were there to give them a message of reaping what you have sown. 
Break the law, go to jail. Break God’s law, go to hellfire. Preaching on these streets, they did get a bit physical but that is always the case when we jockey for real estate on the sidewalk and we are never on home field. That sidewalk in that section of town is someone’s home.
“And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit”
Ephesians 5:18
How true is that verse as it is odd that hard liquor is called ‘spirits’ by name. No doubt there were many demonic spirits that were manifesting around us and like the other stops we made that day. LAPD were did not pay us a visit to argue free speech.
I did get one homeless guy with a Bible that told me, those streets need to hear that message because we have no idea what happens on those streets. 
Another old woman most likely from a Pentecostal Church started to bind demons from me. I told her is was not working, she continued more. Demanding that I stop in Jesus Name. I told her nothing has happened, God did not honor that rebuke or she has no power. Her reply was I was satan himself, not a demon, so after one puff on her cigarette she rebuked me in Jesus Name and walked off, as I stood there saying its not working. There is no power there.
  Many of these people want this lifestyle, where they can do nothing all day, have meals delivered and do their drugs on the street. Sin is not good and even in their state of darkness, they are blinded.
“Woe unto him that saith to the wood, Awake; to the dumb stone, Arise, it shall teach! Behold, it is laid over with gold and silver, and there is no breath at all in the midst of it”
Habakkuk 2:19
Was the yearly Hare Krishna parade in Venice beach or better known as the ‘Festival of the Chariots’ where this religion will dance on the boardwalk and pull three large floats filled with idols. After preaching against this parade, we followed them to their fest where they will feed Venice Beach with free vegetarian food and nuts. Everyone on the boardwalk was warned of idolatry but were bewitched by the drum beat and chanting. 
This event is their big evangelical thrust in Los Angeles and I preached “Why not give that food to the starving children in India rather than feeding the beach goers in America. You wish to see the fruit of this religion, go to India. They will allow child to die but make sure and feed the cow or rat.”
This group like most Hindus believe in reincarnation, so they will not eat that cow, lest they return as a cow and someone eat them. So starving children that die is considered a benefit as they
move to another body.
This event has been going on since 1977 in Venice Beach and the Lord has had me warn against this since 1980. It is smaller than the 80’s and back then they had painted elephants walking the route but I think they had too many complaints, so they are removed. Because of this religion I wear a cow costume as I preach against the worship of cows. 
Not holy cow but HOLY FATHER. Not holy cow but HOLY GHOST, HOLY BIBLE. No cow ever died for the sins of the world, no cow rose from the dead.
After the 3 float parade go by we follow the last float and preach to everyone on the route regarding the evils of Krishna and the worship of idols but most would rather cheer the cult in pajamas than hear the truth.
“Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?”
Galatians 4:16
God hates idols. The first two of the Ten Commandments are against false gods and graven images. But the crowd cheers the idolaters and hissed against the preachers who proclaimed the standard of God. We had much liberty again this year with following behind, using megaphones and banners. 
These people are in a trance, chanting themselves into a frenzy in the worship of their god and the Holy Ghost used us to wake them from their stupor.
“Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry”
1 Corinthians 10:14
This was like a scene right out of the Old Testament, where people worship man made idols that has eyes but can not see, ears that will never hear and a mouth that never talks.
One lacks faith and understanding when a graven image is needed.
“The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of men's hands. They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not; They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouths. They that make them are like unto them: so is every one that trusteth in them”
Psalm 135:15-18
After the parade was over those large carts enter the park to celebrate their day, so we stood at the entrance of said park to preach and answer questions. Those banners made a statement as they wanted LAPD to move us but that never happened.
As with any other event we preach, they seem to gather around us and forget about the event. The picture below is a young man who prayed himself into a daze to bring peace to that section of beach we were at. I spoke with him and he said, “I do believe in your Jesus but Krishna will take you to a higher level of understanding.” We talked but he would trance in and out during our conversation.
  If one wants ‘peace’ Jesus is the “Prince of Peace” and that religion is at war of with God.

“Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen”
1 John 5:21
The photo above is ‘Exhibit A’ of what an idol looks like as they were fanned and given fruit and nuts before them.
Did you know that Timothy who Paul considered his son in the faith, was put to death according to ‘Foxe’s book of Martyrs’ when he preached against an idolatry parade? Yes, Timothy of whom two Epistles were written was beaten to death for preaching against a pagan feast and parade that took place in Ephesus around 97AD.
Grab some pop corn and make sure that beer has ‘root’ inside before watching the video from Venice Beach as we preach against the idol parade.
