Our Watering Hole

Last weekend the Catholics were having a convention in Orange county and we stood outside their convention for three days and for three days we publicly contested for the faith as per Jude :3
“Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints”
Religion is something man made and God hates, as it will promote a false belief. The Catholics have more faith in their tradition and works than the BLOOD of Jesus. Most Christians believe this religion is wrong but how many would make time and reprove them for such? 
 This religion will not save one soul but who will rise up and speak against this Moose Lodge with a cross?
They were not only reproved for their bad theology but they were rebuked for allowing their priests to molest children within their Church as certain member worked as security to keep
the Catholics at bay.
“For both prophet and priest are profane; yea, in my house have I found their wickedness, saith the LORD” Jeremiah 23:11
And as with any event we preach at, the local police and venue security were called and kept on eye on us. We had much liberty at this event, as we have preached this convention center for decades.
Once upon a time this particular religion would have killed people like us as this Church has an ocean of bloodshed under it’s name. Yet they believe, they are the true Church, with the pure doctrine and the pope is the spokesperson for God. 
On the second day with the Catholics I brought a prop. I lifted a statue of Mary with one hand and had a hammer in the other hand and preached the second Commandment. 
Then after I rebuked the masses for worshipping a graven image in both letter and spirit, which is bowing down to man made statues. I did what any God fearing protestant would have done. I busted Mary into pieces as I preached against idolatry.
  After I was done breaking their idol, I lifted my banner and answered questions, as a number of Catholics appeared to be upset and even prayed to Mary to stop me.
“Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD. Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings,
saith the LORD”
Jeremiah 23:1-2
Many Catholics admitted they do not read the Bible Most believers do not know but the Catholic Church has removed the Second Commandment from the 10 Commandments because it pertains to their worship of dead saints and they compensated by splitting up Commandment number 10 to get Ten Commandments.
On Day 3 of the Catholic Church, I used another prop. I preached against the cult from Rome with a Bible in one hand
….and bloody rags in the other hand….
As I exhorted the masses of Isaiah the prophet who said to the religious of his day saying;
“But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away”
Isaiah 64:6
Many were appalled at my bloody prop and rightly so, as I said; this is what your prayer to Mary looks like and shook it at them.
This is what your confession to a priest on Saturday looks like and waved it at them.
This is what wearing a scapular looks like to God and wobbled it at them.
This is what keeping your sacraments looks like and dangled it at them.
This is what ashes on the forehead look like to a holy God as I bobbed those bloody rags at them.
Nothing like a visual-aid to make your point, as God used Ezekiel to do many object lesions for his theater. But I was ‘rebuked in Jesus name’ commanded ‘satan to leave’ and I forced the Mary-dolaters to break out the rosary beads but at least no one tossed holy water on me.
I answered questions and even a few priests were provoked to respond but only argued tradition. They were soon rebuked as Jesus said to ‘feed my sheep’ not molest them and send them to hell. Liars will have their place in that Lake of Fire and these priests have lied beyond lies. 
 How many Catholics were banking on purgatory?
What a blessing to be used by God and SHINE His light in public, but as our Lord said “Men love darkness rather than light”
“They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate”
Titus 1:16 
At the end of the day, these people are drunken with Rome. They desire tradition rather than truth. They crave religion rather than scripture. They want works rather than the Cross on Calvary. They want Mary next to Jesus. 
  “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”
1 Timothy 2:5
Welcome to the Church of the street preacher, unlike the pulpit preacher who sees their congregation in Sunday clothes and looking very nice in a religious building. We see those same people on Monday-Saturday and their life is filthy, smutty and ungodly, as our outdoor Church does not have the stain glass windows and comfortable pews. 
 Trash everywhere and our outdoor Church stinks, but someone needs to go. 
  Are you willing?
Shedding LIGHT in the notorious LA Projects. Some one will get shot and killed there daily and so our message is blunt and with urgency The same message of repentance was echoed within the projects and rarely does anyone come into that neighborhood. They asked if we were LAPD but we came with more authority and power as we brought the kingdom of God to their face.
After our visit to the projects we went to the famous skid-row in downtown Los Angeles and it was getting late as we brought a message of hope to the downtrodden. I exhorted the streets that drugs and booze are not your best friend, as these people are paying a price for their sin, this side of heaven.
“There is a way that seems right to a man but the end is death” They were taught on ‘reaping what they have sown’ and it was pointed out that most if not all the missions in that area are Christian. Not Islam and not atheist but Christianity. 
Sin is only for a season as per Hebrews 11:25 and one can and will pay a price for it this side of heaven. Nothing glamorous about sin.
“There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death”
Proverbs 16:25
The picture below is one young homeless man did not care for my preaching as sin had taken a toll on his life and repentance was not in his vocabulary. People like him have been told how much Jesus loves them and not the consequence of sin, that day he heard the ‘full gospel.’
Care to see what Ezekiel 3:8-9 looks like, see photo below; “Behold, I have made thy face strong against their faces, and thy forehead strong against their foreheads. As an adamant harder than flint have I made thy forehead: fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house
“Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men”
Psalm 59:2
We joined Brother Jed and preached at UCLA with my famous anti-Islam banner which had a number of students upset. It even made the Muslim and homosexual, atheist and Jew stand together against my sign as I answered questions for several hours. That day I addressed the issue of religion and how these false religions will send you to hellfire. 
 I debated with Muslim, Mormon, Jew, Catholic, Buddhist and Hindus that Jesus Christ was the only way. Most religions have a form of Jesus but reject Him as the only begotten Son of God and for such have the wrath of God on them.
“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him”
John 3:36
And of course the ‘Christians’ we offended in my method and wanted to hear more love and acceptance in my preaching. 
The Muslim below tried to argue that Islam was a religion of peace as that was refuted in a New York minute as many students gather to hear the public debate. He called the campus police and demanded that they remove my banner. 
 He could not believe, I had the right to speak against his religion in that fashion. I reminded him, we were in America and not Iran. 
The campus police did arrived (as IF this never has happened before) and said what we were doing was illegal on campus BUT they would allow us to finish up the day and stay. Must have been a slow day of crime on campus. 
Verily, had we done something that broke the law we would have been arrested or at least given a citation and made to leave the campus. But this was just another day at the office for any open air preacher.
“Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets
which were before you”
Matthew 5:10-12
It appears we will have a ‘free speech’ lawyer contact UCLA on this matter, so any other open air preach does not get removed with my wake. Is it any wonder most of the New Testament was written in a jail cell?
Paul wrote in 2 Thessalonians 3:1
“Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you”
See, we do not discriminate, we preach to all creatures as per Mark 16:15. This zip code is where the wealthy come to shop at the famous Rodeo Drive, where if you need to ask how much something is, you can’t afford it.
After 15 minutes of preaching I was confronted with Rodeo security and asked to move, I refused and asked for BHPD to be called. Of course a black and white police car came by and talked with security and they were informed that we were within our rights.
The security officer later told me that he knew we were within our rights but was told by his boss to get us out from that particular location. Besides, if we were to get arrested in Beverly Hills, we would have made it in time for dinner in jail and BHPD gives their inmates caviar and lobster.
And of course many cars driving Rodeo Drive were limos, sports cars and such, so when the sidewalk was empty, you can preach to vehicles waiting on the red light. It is hard to get converts in Beverly Hills, because these people are used to paying for everything and the Gospel is free
  Never the less we tried to push and pull their camels into the eye of the needle and that day, the rich were warned that their money
will not save them. 
Living in Los Angeles is a great watering hole to preach for street preachers. A large active city that influences the world. A city where homeless people roam the streets coupled where the richest people in the world live and the opportunity to preach to all of them. We have a message for everyone.
“Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man”
Colossians 4:6
Here is a video clip from New Orleans, Mardi Gras where I bust down the dark principalities and anything else in the way.
Grab some pop corn and make sure that beer has some ‘root’ in it and enjoy:
