Video preaching ‘The Lord is gracious but He will not…’ (an angry man & woman heckle the message, a lady turns her K9 loose on me)
Last week I saw a Facebook friend post this verse on Facebook (but only half the verse), and I noticed the many positive responses that it created. But I wondered what would the unregenerate say, if the whole verse had been posted. So I decided to use this verse to preach from at this outreach, but the whole verse. And sure enough, some from this crowd became very angry.
One man on the far right was extremely agitated. I am glad that I did a sound check when I began, because it is proof that my volume was not too loud, and only reasonably loud enough so that those on the end of the line could hear. Therefore he was offended at the Gospel message, not at an unreasonable volume.
Then a lady that professed to be a believer, began to heckle my message. Then another lady that had her dog on a leash, turned her dog loose on me, and her dog came right at me (OK there’s some humor in that incident for you).
The Lord also provided some fruitful conversations (which I omitted). May the Lord turn those conversations into conversions.
“If the professed convert distinctly and deliberately declares that he knows the Lord’s will but does not mean to attend to it, you are not to pamper his presumption, but it is your duty to assure him that he is not saved. Do not suppose that the Gospel is magnified or God glorified by going to the worldlings and telling them that they may be saved at this moment by simply accepting Christ as their Savior, while they are wedded to their idols, and their hearts are still in love with sin. If I do so I tell them a lie, pervert the Gospel, insult Christ, and turn the grace of God into lasciviousness.” – Charles Spurgeon
