Open-Air preaching @ Redlands High School, on Marijuana Sorcerers
Because I was by myself, I didn’t want to take a chance of getting my camera knocked off the tri-pod. Therefore, I mounted it on my car parked away from me.
Unbeknown to me, the bigger crowd was just to my left (out of the cameras view,) in the parking lot.
It’s better to have a person with me, to operate the camera; to pan and capture the reaction of others. In the middle of my message, there was a heckler in a carload of students, who screamed and flipped me off.
As Paul Washer said, “If your properly preaching the Gospel, it will be scandalist. And if you try to make it less of a scandal, you no longer preach the Gospel.” I admit I wasn’t properly preaching a polished perfect message, but Gods Word never goes void.
At the end, you will hear a father who was picking up a student, yelling and waving his hand in the air in agreement. I suspect many Christian parents would want open-air there every day. You may subscribe to my YouTube channel here.
Here is some of my notes:
Marijuana use warning (open-air preaching)
Sadly, many alleged Christians are smoking marijuana. One attends a church just down the street.
Those marijuana smokers that called themselves ‘Christians,’ have willfully taken Gods Word out of context.
They have heretically used Gen 1:12&20, to justify their marijuana use.
In those verses the Lord speaks of God’s creation of “grass” and “weed.”
It is true that God created this beautiful world.
But what these alleged Christians don’t tell you, is that in the second chapter of Genesis, sin entered the garden of Eden.
Then in the third chapter came the curse. Because of Adam and Eves’ sin, the curse entered the garden and the whole world.
This same curse attacks our homes, lawns, and gardens. The weeds that take over our beautiful gardens, are from that curse. These weeds are not good.
That is why one of the names for marijuana, is “weed.” This weed we call marijuana is part of the curse.
The Bible warns us about drugs (including marijuana,) that it is a wicked sin.
It says in Gal 6:19-21, “Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.”
God warned that those who practice those sins will go to hell.
The word ‘sorcery’ in that passage comes from the Greek is ‘pharmakeia.’ It means any drug that altars the mind.
God also warned that putting anything before God, or beside God, is idolatry.
The following warning was written to Christians.
It says in 1st Cor 6: 9-11, “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”
Jesus warned in Rev 21:8, “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
For those of you that call yourselves a Christian, please listen up.
It says in Romans 6:11-13, ”Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.”
Don’t even associate with marijuana dispensaries. It says in “1 Cor 15:33, “Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.”
Jesus warned in Mark 1:15, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”
If we do not repent from our sins, and believe in the Bible; we will perish in hell. It means either turn or burn.
Jesus warned in Luke 13:3, “I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.”
Jesus also warned in mark 1:15…………
The word ‘repent’ means to have a change of mind and change of heart. To turn form or sins, and turn to Christ. Put your trust and faith in Christ, and Christ alone.
The Lord loves you, He would rather you surrender our life over to Him.
