Video Evangelizing the Grand Re-Opening of the LAPD Academy
Note: The tracts were distributed ‘before and after’ the actual ceremony. All conversations were removed.
On this great day of the Lord I had the privilege of evangelizing this historical Los Angeles police event. My goal was to get a Gospel tract into as many hands as possible. By the grace and providence of the Lord, I was able to accomplish much. I personally delivered a Gospel tract into the hands of over 200 persons. From LAPD’s second in Command (their new Assistant Chief). Then into the hands of several Deputy Chiefs, then to a majority of the rest of their upper command staff. As well as various officers from their rank and file, to miscellaneous dignitaries; and police supporters.
These Biblical Gospel tracts include a presentation of both the ‘Law and the Gospel,’ as well as a graphic warning of eternal damnation in hellfire, that they must be ‘born-again, as well as the Biblical command to ‘repent’ and to put their ‘faith and trust in Christ alone’ for salvation. As it’s been said by others. Police officers won’t be able to badge their way into heaven, and they most certainly won’t be able to badge their way out of hell.
Please pray that the Lords Holy Spirit will fertilize the soil for His Gospel Seeds. Please continue to pray for them, and this labor of love, as I watched many of them reading their tracts while on scene. – Chaplain Bill Rhetts 🙂
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek (Romans 1:16).
“How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? As it is written, how beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:14-17).
