Video open-air preaching ‘Today will be 110°F, but hell will be a lot hotter’

Share Button

After preaching this message this morning, I opened it up for Q&A, and prayer. Brethren, please pray for the wonderful lady seen at the end, as well as her 2-year-old daughter; the Lord knows the details.

I removed all private conversations.

Video excerpt ‘Quit Running from the Doctrine of Hell,’ by Pastor Tim Conway

Naturally the world despises this doctrine. But unnaturally many ‘professing’ Christians do as well.

An Elder’s Wife Breaks Free of Beth Moore, she and her husband approach their Pastor

Share Button

This is an excellent article and personal testimony of an Elders wife, who later discerned that Beth Moore was a false teacher. Take note as to how she went to her husband for counsel, and then went under his covering. I love how her husband (an Elder) then took an unpopular stance against their own compromising Pastor.

All too often Elders are ‘buddies’ with the Pastor, hence the Elder(s) will rarely rock the boat when necessary. They become man-pleasers, rather than God-pleasers. As I’ve said before, when nepotism and cronyism creeps into our churches, it negatively effects leadership; and the sheep suffer.

Yes this couple did cause some division, but in a Biblical way, and their efforts yielded healthy fruit. We need more Elders and Elders wives like this.

Article here (a short read).

The Southern Baptist Church Convention has revealed their own gender identity confusion, as they change Gods Word to be more gender neutral  

Share Button

It is important to note that I am not speaking of the Lords Church (Christ’s bride) here. I am speaking of a denomination.

As I’ve warned many times before, the Southern Baptist Church has continually engaged in a gradual process of apostasy. Now their extra-biblical Rome-like ecclesiastical hierarchy has changed ‘their Bible’ to be more ‘gender neutral.’ Just like the rest of the world, the Southern Baptist convention has revealed their own ‘gender identity’ confusion.

Whatever happened to the doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture? What ever happened to the doctrines of the infallibility and inerrancy of Scripture? What ever happened to Sola scriptura? (So that I don’t have a log in my own eye, when some from within ‘my own’ denomination stray from Sola scriptura (which they have), I have ‘called them out’ on that).

I am no longer simply warning my SBC brethren, I am now imploring you to run while you still can. In the meantime, stop financing this nonsense. This is why I would like to see more ‘Acts 2 house churches planted,’ and leave your checkbook at home.

Disclaimer: Not all SBC churches have followed this falling away, but it appears that a majority have.

Video using a Theophany to evangelize – adulterous woman responds to the Gospel while open-air preaching

Share Button

Today while preaching I experienced quite a contrast between two people in the same line. The prideful man on the far left scoffed and laughed at the preaching of the Gospel. After I rebuked him, I later handed him a tract; but he threw it on the ground. When I attempted to pick the tract up, he stepped on it; preventing me from doing so.

But then a humble women responded to the Gospel. She stepped out of the line, and told me that she was convicted by the preaching, because she is committing adultery, and is planning on divorcing her husband (I had just preached how many ‘churches’ are deceived re sexual immorality). She advised that she wanted to “inherit the kingdom of God.”

I prayed for her and gave her Biblical counsel. She didn’t get one of those unbiblical counseling sessions whereas I told her “we’ve all sinned,” implying that her sexual immorality is OK. She received some hard counsel from the Scriptures, including telling her that even if she does repent from this adultery, that divorcing her husband would compound one adultery with another adultery. Our conversation was longer then seen in this video, and I removed the audio from our conversation.

Please pay for her, for reconciliation with the Lord, and with her husband.

Nowhere in the Scriptures are we told to invite others to our church (though there’s nothing wrong with that), but we are commanded to ‘go out’ and invite them to Christ.

“If God had painted a yellow stripe up the backs of the elect, I’d go through London lifting up coats and preaching only to them. As it is, He has not, so I preach the Gospel to all, and God brings his sheep” – Charles H. Spurgeon

Side note: My preaching was inconsistent. I intended to stop about 1/3 through. But I decided to press-on. That was when I preached on that dark list of sins in 1 Cor. 6, and that they will not inherit the kingdom of God. Thank You Lord for using that inspite of myself.

Video preaching ‘Every knee will bow to Jesus, even those in hell; but it will be too late’

Share Button

At time-stamp 00:41 the blonde lady to the far right, said something to the effect, “I don’t need to hear this,” she then walked away. But she later returns to heckle the message. The problem is she alleged to be a “believer.” She should have heard my message last Friday, which warned that “Many believers” will perish in hell. But only the Lord can know this woman’s eternal state.

Video preaching that many “believers” will perish, Q&A & prayer requests

Share Button

I usually edit-out allot of what you see in this video. But I want others to see that I do not merely engage in what is known as “drive-by preaching” (though at times I will). I prefer to preach, teach, minister, and when possible, ‘disciple them.’

There was something special about the two ladies that I prayed over. I didn’t mean to pick on the gals t-shirt, but it makes a great conversation as to what the Scriptures say. And the lady on the left displayed much peace. #loveselfie

A video entitled ‘Should a Christian drink alcohol?’ by Dr. Al Stone of Bible Baptist Church

Share Button

I first saw this video today on the ‘Two Wine Theory’ Facebook page. I then contacted Bible Baptist Church, and they were gracious enough to provide me with the embedded code for my web site.

I am posting this with the expectation that his ‘part two’ will not compromise. 😉 Thank you Dr. Stone for your willingness to take such an unpopular stand. Actually understandably unpopular in the world, but as you mentioned your stand is becoming more unpopular in some ‘professing churches.’

Brethren, though a person is saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. Sanctification is something that we do work on, I pray daily for more sanctification (maturity & holiness). Works had nothing to do with my salvation (monergism), but works, choices, and decisions, have a lot to do with my sanctification (synergism / Holy Spirit willing). Brethren I would encourage you to do the same.

Update on my heart failure (June 2017 – revised in July)

Share Button

Since my Cardiac Arrest my Doctors have been closely monitoring the progress of my heart. I’ve have reasonable strength, but only for a short while. So last week my Cardiologist told me to walk longer, to increase my “endurance.”

But since my heart is now “Pacemaker reliant,” I was apprehensive to walk too far (lacking confidence in my heart).

Therefore this week I increased my walks up to 50-minutes each, and my blood pressure, and heart rate is reasonably good.

Hopefully Lord willing this Systolic Heart Failure and Cardiomyopathy will improve over time. But then again, it may be the Lords will for that (or the Pacemaker) to be a ‘thorn in my flesh.’ If so, then praise the Lord for that too.

“And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong” (2 Corinthians 12:7-10).

Your prayers have been much appreciated. 🙂

UPDATE JULY 2017: I am thankful that there has been improvement in my heart. Since my Pacemaker / ICD / defibrillator was installed, my heart rate was preset at 60bpm, and it does not go higher or lower, and that makes me so tired. So today the Heart Institute altered the settings in my ‘sensor’ to DDDR mode. Now my heart will beat a little bit higher & lower, but somehow that changed much more as to how my heart works (too confusing, more details here). They are also setting me up with a remote monitoring device in our home, that will transmit my heart rate and rhythm to them, via our phone line. This remote monitoring reports much more than that, and it’s like having my Doctor check me daily. Scary stuff, but am very thankful for it. While leaving the hospital today rather than the elevator, I took the stairs in the parking structure, what a difference. They also took me off one of my heart meds called “Amiodarone.” This medicine was necessary, but they advised it is “very toxic.” Therefore I am thankful that I am off it. Lord willing time will tell if I endure the side effects from it. Either way in all things may I rejoice.

Evangelized an LAPD – LAFD Annual Bar-B-Que, then Dodgers fans, then the Police Academy, and last but not least…

Share Button

Yesterday I responded to an invitation to an annual Bar-B-Que for retired Los Angeles Police Officers, and Fire Department personnel.

While driving to Los Angeles, so that I would maximize my effectiveness, I prayed specifically for ‘timing, and logistics.’ In other words, how does one guy cover so many, without missing a soul, or duplicating my tract distributions?

Once I arrived, I paid my $5.00 admission, received my ticket (#201), and slapped-on my ‘blue’ name tag (Fire Dept. was red). The turn-out was larger than I anticipated. One fellow told me they had sold 280 tickets.

I immediately saw the long lines of police and fire waiting to get their plates filled. So I began distributing my Gospel Tracts to those standing in line, as well as those already sitting down to eat. The timing and logistics were perfect, which enabled me to accomplish my goal (though I’m sure I missed a few).

Their food looked irresistible, but I began to think. While arriving at this location I noted that the Police Academy (next door) had an event going on, and the Dodgers Stadium (also next door), had lots of traffic due to a Dodgers game. So I looked at that wonderful food and their great reunion one more time, and then decided to leave this location on an empty stomach. That was a difficult decision. 🙁

I then evangelized the highly populated Police Academy, as well as Dodgers fans.

Once I finished planting all those Gospel Seeds, my stomach reminded me that I was hungry a long time ago. So since I completed so much fast-food fast-paced evangelism (aka Rapid Tract Distribution), I decided to go to In-N-Out Burgers in Alhambra. Yes In-N-Out, that’s what a hamburger’s all about!

However as usual, I evangelized the restaurant (I just can’t seem to restrain myself). Though I did not videotape the other outreaches, I did turn-on my cellphone camera for the In-N-Out Burger outreach.

Jesus said “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few” (Matthew 9:37), and I’m not complaining. 🙂

Lt. Col. Dave Grossman speaking in Palm Desert, and at Grace Community Church (Fri July 14th, & Sat July 15th – 2017)

Share Button

Today while at the Los Angeles Police Academy, I learned about these seminars being held near the Inland Empire.

Grossman is the owner of the “Killology Research Group….” The psychological cost of learning to kill. He is the Author of award winning books, as well as an article that I’m particularly fond of entitled ‘Sheep, Wolves, and Sheepdogs.’

“Lt. Col. Dave Grossman is an internationally recognized scholar, author, soldier, and speaker who is one of the world’s foremost experts in the field of human aggression and the roots of violence and violent crime. Lt. Colonel Dave Grossman is a former West Point psychology professor, a Pulitzer Prize nominated author, and a former US Army Ranger who has spent a lifetime studying and teaching about the reality of combat. He is our nation’s most successful and respected trainer of military, Special Forces and law enforcement; on the road, almost 300 days a year training our nation’s “sheepdogs” a term that he coined in his famous treatise on “The Sheep, the Wolf, and the Sheepdog.” Now his dynamic, powerful and inspirational training is available to LEO and all citizens as he teaches about the threats to our nation, internal, external and terrorist related, and the role (as intended, under the Constitution) of armed American citizens in answering these threats.” – Killology Research Group

Video open-air preaching a Biblical portrait of Christ to a long line (I’m a “Liar” & a “false prophet”)

Share Button

The tall guy at the beginning refused a Gospel tract, which later proved he would become problematic, he later joined the man in the truck. He was telling others that I was “a liar,” and a “false prophet” (praise the Lord for opposition).

Another ‘professing’ Christian that believed in a “higher power,” suggested I share “John 3:16,” so I did.

Several other Christians were thankful for the public proclamation of the Gospel. After this sermon, I prayed over one women, and engaged in some conversations (conversations not included).

Next, I will be going to Los Angeles, to evangelize an annual Bar-B-Que for ‘retired firemen and police officers,’ please pray for that. By the grace of God, and all for the glory of God.

Video preaching Christ was “shredded” for my sins (as industrial shredder was shredding paper)

Share Button

As I’ve stated before, “It is the Heralds or ‘boots in the street’ that work in stressful, unsafe, unpredictable, uncontrolled, unrehearsed, and sometimes even dangerous work environments, all of which is done free of salary.” But this is the first time I’ve ever had to preach over a loud hydraulic shredding machine, and I’m not complaining.

Video of a Rattlesnake visiting our lunch spot @ The Devils Hole

Today myself and some fine fellows went on an off road trip up in the Lake Arrowhead Mountains, to a place called the “Devil’s Hole.” When we took our lunch break, this rattlesnake decided to slither under my Jeep. Also distributed some tracts.
