Montana

The Montana ‘Street Preachers Convention 2016’ was liken to the ‘school of the prophets’ found in the Old Testament.
 
Saints can be edified, schooled and tooled into taking the Word of God into the highways and hedges to ears that need to hear.
 
You are NOT alone street preacher as God is raising an army.
 
In 1 Kings 19 Elijah once thought that he was the only one who served God, yet there were 7000 who have not bowed to Baal. 
 
  You are NOT alone.
 
We had testimonies how God is raising up men and women for this public service and those testimonies consisted of young men, old men, wives, husbands and wives, brother and sister, ministers, business owners, campus preachers and event preachers.
 
  These saints came from Canada, California, Oregon, Washington, Florida, Arizona, New Mexico, Idaho, Texas, Pennsylvania, Hawaii, Ohio, Illinois and more.
 
 
They bussed in, flew in and drove in to get equipped and to say we are not a growing movement, would be an understatement.
 
As God used John the Baptist to preach a message of repentance and exposed the religious world of hypocrisy to bring in the coming of the Messiah, God will raise many John the Baptist’s to establish the return of our King.
 
Every session had a worship service
 
Which was followed by prayer
 
“We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the LORD fulfil all thy petitions”
Psalm 20:5
 
 
 
And the reading of ‘Martyrs Mirror’ was read daily.
 
“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution”
2 Timothy 3:12
 
You think you have tasted persecution because someone on facebook un-friended you or someone slandered your good name. 
 This book will modify that position.
 
 
 
IF you do not belong to a Church or ministry who does not mirror the early Church, I say TIME TO FIND ONE
 
This books speaks volumes of real Christianity, NOT American Christianity.
 
 
 
“And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel?”
1 Kings 18:17

Are you a trouble-maker for Jesus?
 
 
All speakers, prayers, readers from the Montana convention can be found on our ‘Street and Open Air Preachers of America’ facebook page. 
 
 Friend us and join us be edified and GO tell someone about Jesus.
 
 
The theme of the event was ‘peculiar’ as we had speakers and speakers, that edified and taught all day and into the night. 
 
  “Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works”
Titus 2:14
 
“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light”
1 Peter 2:9
 
Our meeting started at 9AM and was over around 11PM, then the after glow. 
 
 
Of course after each session, many broke into small groups and fellowshipped with each other
 
 
 
After hearing MEAT from the pulpit, we were served meals fit for a king and for the record there was no Jello or kool-aid served. 
 
 
 
 
We had people coming and going every day for four days. A few of us prayed for those that needed to leave early, so we laid hands on them and prayed God used them in a mighty way.
 
  “Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery”
1 Timothy 4:14
 
Displaying banners were everywhere as these tools are great to get your message across to large crowds and we have banners for distinct events 
 
  “Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners?”
Song of Solomon 6:10
 


 
“Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah”
Psalm 60:4
 
You can buy these banners and shirts from
.
While the men were looking at banners, getting hats and ordering shirts, the children were playing outside the convention.
 
 As this event is very much family friendly
 
 
Of course we had ‘kids’ crafts’ as the children made pictures of animals and the brothers preaching.
 
Every day we had winners and prizes for those winners
 
 
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it”
Proverbs 22:6
 
“And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord”
Ephesians 6:4
 
These children will be living in a darker sinful theater and we must plan for that day.
 
“And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus”
2 Timothy 3:15
 
Now because this is Montana the ‘Second Amendment’ is a right we do exercise, along with voting and free speech on a public sidewalk.
 
 
To keep us walking on that public sidewalk, we had a free speech lawyer speak with time for Q&A.
 
Rick Nelson will not only defend your right in America but he is a born-again Christian that God is using to preserve our freedom in America.
 
 
 
 
All speakers, prayers, readers can be found on our ‘Street and Open Air Preachers of America’ facebook page. Friend us and join us be edified and GO!!!
 
 
 
This is brother Glenn from Idaho, we started ‘Bible Believers’ in the 1980’s
 
We started when we were both around 19 years old and now into our mid 50’s we exhorted the young street preachers to have a vision and keep to that vision as one day it will be reality. 
 
  As young men we dreamed of chapters nationwide working together and the Lord gave us that.
 
As young men we dreamed of training young men for public preaching and the Lord gave us that
 
As young men we dreamed of conventions like this and the Lord has now allowed us to do three a year
 
It is amazing how many people have been going to Church for years or decades but do not know what their function is within the body of Christ. 
 
Many run from Church to Church, from ministry to ministry, searching for their purpose.
 
“Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular”
1 Corinthians 12:27
 
 
We hoped we could have been an encouragement to the younger men as we have worked together for over 30 years. I am thankful we did not waste our youth.
 
“Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart”
2 Timothy 2:22
 
Glenn also displayed the old banners we once flew, those banners were made of canvas and each was hand painted, also they were held up with metal poles and bungee cords.
 
IF only those banners could talk, oh, the stories they would tell. 
 
 
The parking lot outside the Church was filled with Christianized vehicles and no doubt the neighborhood knew we had a meeting.
 
Many Church vans will have the Church name on it but NOTHING to get the unsaved saved.
 
“In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths”
Proverbs 3:6
 
These are 65 MPH tracts
 
 
 
On Saturday we split up into two groups and drove around a few towns with a Christian caravan
 
 
 
The procession ended at the 10 Commandment Park, where the Ten Commandments are placed on large signs, along with pro-life signs and statements from past Presidents. 
 
 
The 10 Commandment Park is in route to ‘Glacier National Park’ in Columbia Heights off U.S. Highway 2 will witness to the millions of people that will see the creation and forget the Creator.
 
It is 10- acres 22 billboards of varying sizes and a building that has an office and prayer room. You will not miss the crosses and billboards with the Ten Commandments and patriotic and scripture quotes in a semi-circle around the park.
 
The Montana Department of Transportation reviewed the signs to determine if they are in compliance with the federal Highway Beautification Act and they were.
 
“Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God”
Deuteronomy 32:3
 
 
Inside the 10 Commandment building, you will find photos of these signs all over the world.
 
You can sign the guess book, get free stuff and buy banners to place on buildings, sheds, billboards and the side of a local Church.
 
“Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard; publish, and conceal not…”
Jeremiah 50:2
 
After the caravan we arrived for lunch and the debate scheduled
 
“Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend”
Proverbs 27:17
 
The debate was on ‘elect salvation vs freewill’
 
 
Mat Slick debated Jesse Morrell for about an hour and a half and both will be questioned with those in the audience and watching the live feed.
 
You can view the debate in full with the link below https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1zY0-eFgV8
 
 
“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”
Jude 1:3
 
More highlights of the convention was from the LaVelle family who produced a video against Target Store for allowing the transgender bathroom policy.
 
 
  Marching orders were given and street preachers all over America rebuked Target in at least 26 States and over 60 cities and you could view this preach clip against Target
 
 
 
At night a concert by the Lake was preached at and a couple naked bars were rebuked. Of course the local police arrived around 2AM and were told we were within our rights
 
 
 
We even had a puppet show, a FIRST EVER and that puppet show was not for the kids as everyone had a good laugh.  That was GREAT!! 
 
 
Meeting of the minds, this is where speakers were added, praise songs accepted and time limits on speakers were given
 
 
 
Each night we had a campfire with singing and Bible reading, children making smores and toasted marshmallows as fellowship was paramount around the fire
 
Next year we will have a ‘book burning’ or any articles in your home you need to destroy and be ‘set free’
 
“Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver”
Acts 19:19
