Video using a Theophany to evangelize – adulterous woman responds to the Gospel while open-air preaching
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.
Soli Deo Gloria!
