STREET PREACHERS CRASH “PIZZAGATE”

“Pizzagate” is a conspiracy theory about a child sex pedophile ring being run out of a pizza restaurant in the D.C. area as a front. I do not know if the conspiracy theory is true or not but I know that when we showed up to preach outside of this pizza restaurant all hell broke lose. Angry demons seemed to appear everywhere! The restaurant was filled with homosexuals and rainbow flags were hanging everywhere in the neighborhood! It certainly looked like a hang out for pedophiles! Even if the conspiracy theory isn’t true, we had plenty of lost souls to preach to there! “Preach the gospel to every creature” certainly applied to these people and this location.

As the team preached the homosexuals found many ways to oppose us. First, a large crowd of hecklers stormed around us. Their emotions were out of control. Police eventually arrived and kept the crowd back. The Police lined up and formed a human barrier around  the team.

The sinners even used “angel wings” at one point to try to block our signs and amplifier. These must have been the wings of fallen angels. They even found their own amplifier to try to compete with us and the crowd often got worked up into synchronized chants, which is typical of liberals. “Love Trumps Hate! Love Trumps Hate!” they chanted, which I always find contradictory for sinners to chant because sin is never loving and always hateful. Street preachers preaching repentance and salvation through Jesus Christ are the ones who are on the side of love.

A poster was outside of the restaurant said, “The People vs. Donald Trump” with hashtag #disruptJ20. This pizza restaurant, which was a hang out for homosexuals and has pedophile rumors circling around, was apparently one of the hang outs for the liberal protestors who planned on disrupting the election. Many rioters were arrested during the election. That just goes to show you the type of people we were dealing with here. It’s a good thing that we were there to preach the gospel to them. We warned them about God’s judgment, called them to repentance, and pointed them to Jesus Christ.

We need to take the gospel to everyone. We need to go to the darkest places. We need to go to the worst of people. And we need to tell them the full truth of the gospel.

Chapter Thirty Five

Wisdom in Witnessing and Points for Preaching

I. The Art Form of Preaching

We must first recognize that open-air preaching is an acquired skill as opposed to being a supernatural gift. That notion that preaching is a “gift” is in fact a great myth-conception. “He who wins souls is wise” (Prov. 11:30), yet some view soul winning as though it said, “He who wins souls is gifted.” Public speaking may come more naturally to some and seem quite fearful to others. Open-air preaching will not be easy for everyone who is supposed to do it. Once we view preaching as a skill we can learn to improve our skills to better present the gospel to the lost. It’s been said that “the worst tragedy of your life would be if you step on the stage of history and can’t remember your lines.” This is our chance and our time to make an eternal impact for the King of Heaven. My prayer is that we all be well equipped for the war that is in front of us. May this help feather your arrows and sharpen your axes.

II. Passionate, Fiery Preaching

History has shown that people will listen to anybody talk about anything so long as it is said with passion. Even a wicked man like Hitler had a massive following that believed his lies because he spoke with passion. If you want others to believe you, you must first believe yourself. The Israelites followed “fire by night” (Ex 13:22) and in this dark hour we need our lamps to shine the brightest in order to lead the multitudes out of bondage and into the Promised Land.

C. H. Spurgeon said, “If I were asked – What in a Christian minister is the most essential quality for securing success in winning souls for Christ? I should reply, ‘earnestness.’ And if I were asked a second or a third time, I should not vary that answer, for personal observation drives me to the conclusion that, as a rule, real success is proportionate to the preacher’s earnestness. Both great men and little men succeed if they are thoroughly alive unto God, and fail if they are not so…”[1]

Spurgeon said, “In many instances ministerial success is traceable almost entirely to an intense zeal, a consuming passion for souls, and an eager enthusiasm in the cause of God, and we believe that in every case, other things being equal, men prosper in the divine service in proportion as their hearts are blazing with holy love. ‘The God that answers by fire, let him be God’; and the man who has a tongue of fire, let him be God’s minister.”[2]

This one characteristic of earnestness, zeal, and passion was so important and valued by this master orator that he went on to say “No man who preaches the gospel without zeal is sent from God to preach at all.”[3]

As a general rule, monotone preaching is not very moving preaching. You will sooner see a row boat tugging an ocean liner or a go-cart toeing a Mac truck before you see a monotone preacher persuading those who are dead in their sins towards repentance. Fire begets fire. Passionate preachers will create passionate converts. Preaching that is cold and dry will typically not create hearts that are ablaze for the Lord. “ Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?” (Jer. 23:29)

If passion and urgency belong anywhere at all, they belong in preaching repentance towards God and faith in Jesus Christ. If men can be passionate about earthly things, how much more can we be passionate about eternal things?

Dr. Michael Brown said, “Here is an overwhelming truth. Every human being will experience either eternal life or eternal loss, eternal peace or eternal pain, eternal blessing or eternal burning.”[4]

Oh! That we may preach as though we truly believed this! May the lost see the seriousness in our eyes and hear the urgency in our voices. Jeremiah spoke with tears in his eyes and fire in his words. “Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay” (Jer. 20:9).

Charles G. Finney said, “Go to a sinner, and talk to him about his guilt and danger; and if in your manner you make an impression that does not correspond, you in effect bear testimony the other way, and tell him he is in no danger. If the sinner believes at all that he is in danger of hell, it is wholly on other grounds than you saying so. If you live in such a way as to show that you do not feel compassion for sinners around you; if you show no tenderness, by your eyes, your features, your voice, if your manner is not solemn and earnest, how can they believe you are sincere?”[5]

A preacher once asked a successful actor how it was that he was able to attract multitudes of people to watch him perform, while he was struggling to get crowds to hear him preach. The actor responded with something to the effect of, “I present artificial stories as though they were real, while you present real stories as though they were artificial.”

III.  Be A Story-Teller

A good preacher is a good story teller. While people may not remember the words they heard, they will remember the images and pictures that they imagined. We must aim to bring people through an experience of the imagination rather than merely having them receive intellectual information. We want the message to be felt, not merely heard. We do this through using illustrations that will engage their imagination.

A. W. Tozer said, “The value of a cleansed imagination in the sphere of religion lies in its power to perceive in natural things shadows of things spiritual. It enables the reverent man to ‘see the world in a grain of sand…and eternity in an hour.”[6]

C. S. Lewis said, “All our truth, or all but a few fragments, is won by metaphor.”[7]

The Master of Metaphors, Christ Jesus, taught with what I call “profound simplicity” so that both children and theologians could say “I get it.” Christ was profoundly simple and therefore he was simply profound. He spoke about the birds of the air, the grass of the ground, the trees of the woods, the fields of the land, the seeds of the farmers, the vines of vineyards, and pulled out divine truth from ordinary objects.

Oswald Chambers said, “Learn to associate ideas worthy of God with all that happens in nature – the sunrises and the sunsets, the sun and the stars, the changing seasons, and your imagination will never be at the mercy of your impulses, but will always be at the service of God.”[8]

While ministering on a beach you may say, “Living in sin is like swimming in the ocean. It certainly is fun, but it wears on you through time. You can’t swim forever! If you try you will certainly die. You need to get onto dry land and be restored in strength. True repentance is just that. Turning away from sin and to the solid rock of Jesus Christ because you know that if continue to swim in sin you will die.” Or you can say something like, “God’s grace is not simply sun-tan lotion to keep you from getting burned when you play under the sun of sin. God’s grace is like a full grown tree providing shadow for those weary of being beaten by the scourging rays of sin.”

When preaching on a college campus you may say, “God will not ‘grade on the curve’ and there is no way that you can skip the Final Exam that He gives.”

When you are arrested for preaching and are brought before the courts, ask the judge if he is ready to stand in The Court Room of the Judge of Judges.

If ministering to those waiting outside a court house to get in, put it in terms they will understand. “One day you will have to answer in God’s courthouse for the crimes you’ve committed against Him. In that Day your conscience will be the witnessing, the Law will be the merciless prosecutor, God will sit as Judge, but Christ can be your advocate if you’d have Him.” Take something that people know in order to teach them something that they don’t know.

Warren W. Wiersbe said, “It’s by using metaphorical language that you turn people’s ears into eyes and help them see the truth.”[9]

Use your words to take sinners on a tour of hell. Let them see the souls in tormenting flames crying out in continual pain and eternal agony. Let them smell the burning flesh and the burning sulfur. Let them feel the great and terrible horror of God’s true and righteous judgments. Then take them on a tour of Heaven to see all the wonders and glories of God. Let them hear the praises of the heavenly hosts. Let them see the glorious and victorious Lamb that was slain; to see the precious red blood that was spilt for them. Let them feel the peace of God’s prepared resting place for all His Saints.

God is an artist. We are his brushes. Words are His paint. Hearts and minds are His canvases. And His desire is to paint a masterpiece!

IV. Preach Life from Your Own Life

A testimony is a powerful weapon in the hands of a witness. As the saying goes, “A man with an experience is not at the mercy of a man with an argument.” Who can argue with your personal testimony? Who can tell you what you did or did not experience? What is a witness if he is not someone who testifies to that which he has seen and heard? It is of such high importance that we use our testimonies when testifying that the Bible mentions it multiple times and God is typically not one to repeat himself! “For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:20). “For thou shall be his witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard” (Acts 22:15), “That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ” (1 John 1:3). “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” (Rev. 12:11).

I would recommend telling the crowd your testimony, even if it is brief, as soon as possible. This can lay the firm foundation of rapport for the rest of your message and will also serve by shattering any “holier than thou” misconceptions that they might have. Give people water to drink out of the wells of personal experience. Certainly some will have deeper wells to draw from than others but all should have water that can be pulled from them just the same.

V. To Know What To Preach, Know To Whom You Preach

We must know our audience if we are going to preach to our audience. The crowds are quite different if you are preaching on a college campus or if you are preaching in front of a bar. What will stir up people in one place will fall on deaf ears in another.

The words of your preaching needs to match the lives of your hearers. You find out where the people are in order to know where to take them. If we are going to preach against the sins of the people, we need to know what their prevalent sins are. On a college campus you may attack sexual immorality and humanistic philosophies, while in the downtown areas late on a Saturday night you would attack the sin of drunkenness. If people are to be personally convicted for their sins, we must not be afraid to preach against their personal sins. This is the way that we need to be “relevant” to our audience.

One dark night I was walking to my car to drive home as I got my keys out of my pocket. When I put my key into the car door I found that it wouldn’t turn. I struggled and struggled to make it turn, remembering that sometimes it gets stuck. No matter how hard I tried, it wouldn’t turn. Rather then breaking the key in the door I stopped and took a step back to try to figure out what I was going to do. As I stepped back and looked at the car I realized the problem – it was the wrong car! It was the right key, just the wrong car. But in order to notice it was the wrong car I needed to step back. Many preachers do the same thing as they walk into the pulpit or stand up on a street corner. They don’t step back and take a look at the crowd so they too often are preaching the right words to the wrong crowd and then get frustrated when they fail to get the result they wanted.

While preaching in Daytona during a college Spring Break I realized that I needed to adjust my message. The typical message that I would preach in a normal park would not grab the attention of those there who were so focused on sin. I would have merely been a single buzzing fly in the midst of a jungle full of animals. Taking a step back and looking at those I was trying to preach to, I fitted my message to fit their lives. Everyone was walking around with alcohol, men had cameras to film sin, and women were wearing what some were scarcely call and others would dare to call clothing. “People, put your alcohol down! Men, put your camera’s down. Women, put your clothes on! The wages of sin is death! Turn to God and live!” It wasn’t until we fitted our message to the audience that we got a reaction out of the audience because the bullets were hitting the bulls eye as the words were now hitting home. Peter did this when he said “Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.” (Acts 4:10).

To captivate the attention of our calloused society and pierce their hearts with the conviction of sin we must not merely preach to sinners but we must preach at them. That is the Bible example or model we see from the prophets, Jesus Christ, and the Apostles.

When Stephen preached in the open air, and was full of the Holy Ghost, and brought conviction of sin to his audience, this is what he said, “Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye. Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers: Who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept it” (Acts 7:51-53).

Charles Finney said, “Bring up the individual’s particular sins. Talking in general terms against sin will produce no results. You must make a man feel that you mean him. A minister, who cannot make his hearers feel that he means them, cannot expect to accomplish much. Some people are very careful to avoid mentioning the particular sins of which they know the individual to be guilty, for fear of hurting his feelings. This is wrong. If you know his history, bring up his particular sins. Kindly, but plainly; not to give offense, but to awaken conscience, and give full force to the truth.”[10]

This revivalist goes on to say “Preaching should be direct. The gospel should be preached to men, not about them. The Minster must address his hearers. He must preach to them about themselves, and not leave the impression that he is preaching to them about others, He will never do them any good, further than he succeeds in convincing each individual that he is the person in question.”[11]

Billy Sunday said, “The law tells me how crooked I am. Grace comes along and straightens me out.”[12]

VI. God’s Word, not our words, never returns void

While preaching the gospel, quote the bible as much as possible even if the audience doesn’t know you are preaching scriptures. Nothing that we can say will be more powerful then what God has already said. We must take the time to remember the scriptures that will be relevant to those who are living in sin. Scriptures that are perfect would be: “the wages of sin is death” (Rom 6:23), “God calls all men everywhere to repent because He has appointed a Day when He will judge the world in righteousness” (Acts 17:30-31), “unless you repent, you will all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3), “God demonstrated His love towards us that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom 5:8), “unless a man is born-again, he will by no means see the Kingdom of God” (John 3:3). Fill your heart to the full with the Words of God so when you go to preach, they will flow out of you rather then being forced out of you. “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” (Joh 7:38)

VII. Go for the Jugular

It can be very easy to run off on a rabbit trail answering an objection. Never lose sight of what our mission truly is.

Warren W. Wiersbe reminds us “As we walk down the middle of the broad road, we meet lost people face to face; and our task as witnesses is to warn them that the map they’re using is all wrong and the destination they’re heading for is named destruction.”[13]

Go for the real issue, seek to solve the serious problem, and be “determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified” (1 Cor 2:2)

Use every effort to turn every single answer to an objection back around to the message of repentance. If a man says that the bible is not true, reason with him as to why the bible is true. Then say “because the bible is true, then it is true that God is calling you to repent. You must do that today.” If someone says “Science disproves the bible”. Answer their objection and say “so because science confirms the bible, you need to obey the bible and repent.” While it is good to be on the defense at times, defending the faith, we must also learn how to switch it back over to the offense, over turning every stone until we come upon the snake of sin to kill it. Remember that it is God who is true, and every man a liar. (Ro. 3:4) It is the sinner that must be on the defense. He should either be defending his sin from the Spirits attacks or surrender the fight, yielding his life wholly to God.

The aim, the goal, the desired result by both Christians and Christ is a spiritual conversion, not merely a spiritual conversation. If you have thoroughly explained both “the goodness and severity of God” (Rom 11:22) then do not be afraid to stress immediate repentance. Our main objective is simple and clear: “repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations.”(Luke 24:27). All down through the New Testament we are told that they preached repentance. John the Baptist: “In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!” (Matt 3:1-2.) Jesus: “From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Mt 4:17) and “I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.” (Lu 13:3) Peter: “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord,” (Ac 3:19) “Then Peter said to them, “Repent” (Ac 2:38) Paul: “Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent,” (Ac 17:30) James: “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.” (Jas 4:8) And all the disciples: “So they went out and preached that people should repent.” (Mr 6:12). Is this message foreign to many of our preachers?

Leonard Ravenhill said, “The evangelists today are very often prepared to be anything to anybody as long as they can get somebody to the altar for something.”[14]

We must preach one message: “Repent, and believe in the gospel” (Mr 1:15)

VIII. You don’t belong in a box! And neither does God.

There was a time that I become so dependant upon all the equipment that I brought out to help me with open-air preaching. I started feeling as though I couldn’t preach if I didn’t have my microphone with easel and displays. Yet no one in the early church had any of those things, they didn’t even have a bible to carry in their hands but they did have the Word in their hearts! I stood up to preach at a bus stop once and I heard a women say with horror in her voice “Oh no! Not him again! He always says the same things!” I put myself in a box that God never intended for me to be in. Don’t be afraid to break out of your box. Once when I was preaching someone yelled out: “let him who is without sin cast the first stone”. My canned response was “I am not throwing stones; I am throwing a rope to save those drowning in sin.” However rather then saying what I always say, I said “who is without sin? God is without sin and He has ten stones which He will one day throw. Those ten stones are his Ten Commandments etc etc.”

Martyn Lloyd-Jones said “We are not going to fight this modern battle successfully by repeating the sermons of the Puritans verbatim, or adopting their classifications and sub-divisions, and their manner of preaching. That would be futile. We must learn to hold on to the old principles but we must apply them, and use them, in a manner that is up-to-date…The moment that we become slaves to any system – I do not care how good it was in it’s age and generation – we are already defeated, because we have missed this whole principal of adaptability.”[15]

We must witnessing using solid biblical principles, and be careful of falling into a set pattern of witnessing. Each individual is different, and yet each individual is the same. They all have the same problem: death and hell without Christ. Though a set pattern will not reach everyone, set principles such as Law before grace will.

IX. Use Humor and Entertainment

While it would be great if we could simply preach a 20 minute message out there on the streets to an attentive audience, it typically won’t work that way. Normally those on the streets are rather busy in their own lives, and it will take more then the average sermon to break them out of that. We must be entertaining. Even the prophets had to do out-of-the-norm acts to get peoples attention. Isaiah walked around barefoot, Ezekiel laid on his side, Jeremiah walked around with a yoke, John the Baptist was quite the spectacle himself wearing camel’s fur, a leather girdle, and eating bugs. However, we don’t always have to be “strange” to captive people’s attention. Some people are rather humorous; don’t be afraid to use your humor for the Lord. Some people are musically talented; use your talent to draw a crowd. What is your gifting and talents? Don’t be afraid to be creative.

We also must remember that we are called to preach the gospel, not entertain people or make them laugh. While entertainment and humor has its place, we must always be aware that we can entertain people and make them laugh even while they are on their way to hell. That is not doing a bit of good. We are to be much more then just another street entertainer, we are called to be preachers of the Gospel!

X. We must be Engaging to Keep the Crowd

While many people won’t stop to listen to a 20 minute sermon, many will stop if you are having a dialog back and forth with someone. While you’re preaching, ask questions and then pause to give someone walking by a chance to answer. “How many of you are out here to get drunk tonight?” as a crowd walking by starts to cheer. “But the bible says no drunkard will inherit eternal life. You guys are in big trouble. What are you going to do on Judgment Day?”

Be as inviting as you can for people to ask questions. Let them know that you want to dialog. You can say certain things that will stir up a potential heckler like “I just can not believe why a logical, reasonable person wouldn’t believe and live by the bible, it’s just so foolish not to” or “Does anyone here not believe in what I am saying?” Don’t be afraid to stir up a heckler. If you want to keep your crowd, you must connect with the crowd. Preach until you get a heckler, and use your heckler until you get a crowd. Then preach the Law until they are wounded, and then grace until they are healed.

While preaching at an “Earth Day” the only response I got from the crowd was strange stares, but no crowd. I studied the audience and saw a man dressed up as a Wizard with a hat, cape, and staff. As he was walking by I said “Wizards, witches, and warlocks God will judge” which got his attention really quick. He stopped and started heckling me which created quite a scene. Groups of people stopped, some sat in the grass, to see the man with a bible and the man dressed as a wizard verbally battle back and forth. Through that one heckler I was able to secure an engaging crowd that lasted for quite some time.

XI. To Preach the Gospel, You must live the Gospel

There is a true story of a well known preacher when he was young. The young man who just recently decided to be a preacher said to his Pastor “I’ve decided that I’m not going to preach anything that I am not living first.” The Pastor, after his many years of experience said “Then you’re not going to have many sermons.” The young man a bit stunned from his pastors response quickly thought about it and said “Well, at least they’ll all be good!”

Andrew Bonar said of Robert Murray M’Cheyne “from the first he fed others by what he himself was feeding upon. His preaching was in a manner the development of his soul’s experience. It was a giving out of the inward life. He loved to come up from the pastures wherein the Chief of Shepherds had met him- to lead the flock entrusted to his care to the spots where he found nourishment…His heart was filled, and his lips then spoke what he felt within his heart. He gave out not merely living water, but living water drawn at the springs that he had himself drunk of, and is not this true gospel ministry?”[16]

If you are to preach repentance, you must be walking in repentance. If you are to preach the gospel, you must be living the gospel. This is not an option; it is a direct order from God. “Even so the Lord has commanded that those who preach the gospel should live from the gospel.”  (1 Co 9:14). A river never raises higher then its source. You can not expect others to live holy if you yourself are not. Civilians are not likely to keep the Laws that they see the government officials breaking.

Do you see a man who is battling with temptation? Then you see a man who is just like the Lord, who was Himself tempted yet without sin. (Heb 4:15). Do you see a man battling against sin? Then you see a man fighting a good fight, in fact you see a man fighting the most serious battle of all time. Some do not feel qualified to preach the gospel. And some truly are not qualified to preach the gospel. But the man who battles against sin is preciously the type of man who is qualified to preach open-air. So long as you are battling against sin and not surrendered to it, you can go out and recruit others to do battle against it as well.

John Wesley, one of history’s most successful open-air preachers, wrote in his Journal “I was much buffeted with temptation; but cried out and they fled away…and herein I found the difference between this and my former state chiefly consisted. I was striving, yea, fighting with all my might under the law as well as under grace. But then I was sometimes, if not often, conquered; now, I was always conqueror.”[17]

XII. Prayer; most power and yet most neglected weapon

The area of most vital importance seems to be the area most are weakest in. Prayer is our most dangerous weapon in this battle, and yet seems to be the most neglected weapon as well. If you are not willing to pray, then neither should you be willing to preach. I charge you prayer-less Christian, if you any love for the lost then pray for the lost. Do you suppose to win souls without praying first for them? I suppose you expect birds to fly without wings as well! We’ve many men who want to preach yet so little men who want to pray.

Martin Luther said “Three things make a divine: prayer, meditation, and temptation.”[18]

Pray before you go out witnessing, while you’re witnessing, and after you have witnessed. It is not the public ministries of the showmen that change the world but it is the private prayers of the saints that does.

Samuel Chadwick said, “Satan dreads nothing but prayer. The Church that lost its Christ was full of good works. Activities are multiplied that meditation may be ousted, and organizations are increased that prayer may have no chance. Souls may be lost in good works, as surely as in evil ways. The one concern of the devil is to keep Saints from praying. He fears nothing from prayer-less studies, prayer-less work, prayer-less religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.”[19]

William Cowper said, “Satan trembles when he sees the weakest saint upon his knees.”[20]

Is there a greater service to God and all of mankind than prayer? Prayer-less preaching is damaging preaching because you will be hardening the hearts of sinners and their condemnation will be worse on Judgment Day. Continually rub a dull knife on your hand and you will callous your skin instead of puncture it. But if you sharpen that knife it will slice the skin. If we ever hope to pierce the hard calloused hearts of sinners with conviction and see them converted rather than left in a worst state, we must sharpen our words through prayer until our words are sharper than a two edged sword.

Prayer serves as our reinforcements in this end time siege for souls. It must be our last resort as well as our first! Is there no power in your preaching? I may safely assume that there is no praying in your preaching either! Wherever our preaching goes, there also our praying should go. As a faithful follower and as a trust worthy friend our prayers must do the work of preparation and the work of follow-up.

A Christian cannot live anymore without prayer than a man can live without breathing. And when we see those around us dead in their sins, prayer is a spiritual “mouth to mouth” which breaths back into the dead the living breath of God in order to resurrect, restore, and revive them again to life.

John Wesley said “For if all your arguments and persuasive fail, there is yet another remedy left, and one that is frequently found effectual when no other method avails. This is prayer.”[21]

Oh that we preachers might say “we will give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word” (Acts 6:4).

XIII. Love As Christ Loved

Finally, we must love those to whom we minister. We must not merely say we love them, we must show that we love them. Love them enough to make yourself a fool. Have compassion enough to convict them of sin. “Open rebuke is better than secret love” (Prov. 27:5). Many in our day wrongfully mistake being “friendly” or “nice” as love. And because they do not want to ruin a friendship or ruin their image of being nice, they will not rebuke men for their rebellion against God. This is very unloving! Do you love God and the lost enough to be cast away by men that they may draw near to God? If you care about the man, you must warn the man to “flee from the wrath to come” (Mat 3:7).

Walter Russell Bowie said “The Christian Church does not need more popular preaching, but more unpopular preaching.”[22]

S. Hawkins wrote, “Many modern appeals are superficial or designed to make hearers feel good. Some churches even rejoice in the fact that people can attend their services without being made to feel guilty about their lifestyles, whatever it may be. Simon Peter’s appeal did not have that effect. It cut and pierced his hearers to the heart. Perhaps that is the reason 3,000 were saved and baptized that day, but also the reason one out of four churches in today’s greatest missionary-sending denomination cannot even baptize one new convert in an entire year!… Conviction always proceeds conversion.”[23]

We must remember that those whom we are preaching too are the very ones for whom Christ died. We must love them as He loves them. And in the ministry of Jesus Christ we see Him calling sinners to repentance, warning them about hell-fire, and rebuking those who remained impenitent. We need to follow the example of Jesus in loving sinners.

Street preacher Gerald Sutek wrote, “Though I preach on the streets of Harlem with a tongue of courage and fire and have not love, I am become a blaring boom box or a noisy muffler. And though I have the gift of voice and can rattle windows and anger shoppers three blocks away, and though I preach coarse and brash so that no person would dare approach me, and have not love, I am nothing. And though they spit at me and curse me and arrest me for disobeying a police officer, and though I may resist unto blood striving against sin, and have not love, it profits me nothing.”[24]

So now, when you go out into the world to preach the gospel, remember to yourself “I am now on the stage of history.” The question is, will you remember your lines?

HOW TO OPEN AIR PREACH: POINTERS & TIPS

Is Paul Washer Compromised and Watered Down? Jesse Morrell

Is Paul Washer Compromised and Watered Down?
 d
I have never listened to any full sermons by Paul Washer because I just can’t stomach the false teachings of Calvinism from any preacher. But today, given his hospitalization, I read an article about him which included some quotes of his.
_
This is what Paul Washer said:
t
““If you can play around in sin, if you can love the world and love the things of the world, if you can always be involved in the world and doing things of the world, if your heroes are worldly people, if you want to look like them and act like them, if you practice the same things they practice—Oh my dear friend, listen to my voice. There’s a good chance you know not God, and you do not belong to Him,” ~ Paul Washer
 d
REALLY? “There’s a good chance”??? There is a slight chance that such a person is saved? If you play around with sin, love the world, love the things of the world, look up to the world, practice worldiness, etc, then you MIGHT not be saved? How about you definitely are not saved!
 d
This quote from Paul Washer shows a real watered down theology when it comes to holiness as essential to salvation, as a fruit of real regeneration, etc. Is this not compromised compared to how clear the Word of God is?
 d
1Jo 2:15 – Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
Jas 4:4 – Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
Notice that these passages do not say, as Paul Washer would understand them:
 d
1Jo 2:15 – Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father MIGHT not be in him.
 d
Jas 4:4 – Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world MIGHT be enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world MIGHT be the enemy of God.
 d
Beware of Compromised Christianity. It can especially be found in the Calvinist camp.
 d
~ Jesse Morrell

SOULS ARE BEING SAVED

THROUGH STREET PREACHING!

I was blessed with an opportunity to speak to a congregation in Topeka, Kansas who knew about my ministry through YouTube. The Pastor of this church is also a street preacher! The real way for a pastor to influence his congregation towards evangelism is to lead by example! Street preaching churches are needed more than ever in America and yet they are hard to find. 

“Souls are being Saved through Street Preaching” was the topic that I spoke on. Jesus IS the Lamb of God who IS taking away the sins of the world! I shared my testimony of how Jesus delivered me from my sins and how I have seen Him do the same thing for many others through my ministry. God is on the move in our country! I have seen drug dealers repent, satanists repent, homosexuals repent, church hypocrites repent, etc. I praise God that we regularly see souls coming to Christ! 

Someone recently asked, “I want to start off by saying I really support your ministry. Preaching on sin, repentance and the Lordship of Christ is missing from most churches. I’ve watched a few of your videos. It always seems people are hostile to.. well having their sin brought to the forefront. Do you find it’s mostly planting seeds or do you see people brought to repentance and believing/following Christ? If so, does that conversion happen on the streets, or do they contact you after the fact. Just curious.”

I answered: “I see a lot of fruit as I continue to plow the fields, but it doesn’t always happen on plowing day. A lot of times people hear me preaching in the open air, get angry, go home convicted, then get right with God, and email me about it later. I am regularly contacted by people who said that they repented and got right with God through my ministry. It happens all the time.”

He said, “Beautiful. Love how God does that!! Thanks for the reply. God bless you.”

Be encouraged and put your hand to the plow! The harvest is ripe but the laborers are few! 

THE BIBLICAL WAY

OF USING THE LAW IN EVANGELISM

 photo 16105490_10154212704026765_4807749672674100339_n_zps7d71jhz8.jpg

The commandments of God are a very powerful weapon and tool that we should use in our evangelism. Through the law is the knowledge of sin. The conviction of sin always comes be true conversion to Christ, so if we want to see souls genuinely converted to Christ we should use the law in our evangelism to bring sinners under the conviction of sin.

I filmed a short teaching video about the biblical way to use the law in evangelism. Some Christians have fallen into the rut of saying the same things, in the same way, every time that they witness as if they were simply reading a script. This is not what we see in the witnessing encounters in the Bible. I hope the evangelism community is edified by the teaching.

ENCOURAGING EMAILS

Someone just told me on Facebook, “After some reflection on what you guys preached about I have decided to follow Jesus.” AMEN! Pray for this brother!
 

“First off Jesse, I want to say thank you. I am 21 years old. And about 6 months ago i repented of my sins because of watching your preaching videos. It has been a real battle for me to battle against temptation of sin but, through the holy spirit and god I have prospered against it. My life has changed pretty drastically and I have done things through the holy spirit that I never thought I could do since I was a shy and fearful guy. I hope one day to preach the word like you one day. God bless.”

“Thank you for everything that you and your blessed family does for God. You are a light of this world and when you speak your voice resonates with my heart. God speaks through you and your family and it is a wonderful sight. I am praying for you and your family daily. Thank you brother for everything.”

“thank you for your ministry. My brother came across your videos on YouTube a few years back and introduced me to them a couple months later. My brother was pretty deep in Calvinism at the time but through your videos came out of that. I, myself, was getting into Calvinism (not as deep but getting there) but my brother showed me some of your teaching and the Lord brought me out of it as well. I thoroughly enjoy your book “The Natural Ability of Man”. ” 

“Thank you for everything you’re are doing Jesse Morrell. Because of you, my brother started his own YouTube Channel and has already preached openly and handed out Tracks. If it wasn’t for you he would not be out in the world sharing the truth about Christ.”
 
“Hey Jessie. The first video I saw of you street preaching was when you were in Washington DC on the Plaza right after the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage. I have never seen street preaching like that before. And I had never Street preached myself and this was something totally new to me. Since then I Street preach in Nashville Tennessee on a regular basis. Your ministry has been a large part of the radical change that the Lord has made in my life during 2016.”

What Happens when Men of God Crash the D.C. Women’s March? Jesse Morrell

INVADING THE D.C. WOMEN’S MARCH TO PREACH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

After we preached at the Donald Trump Presidential Inauguration, the liberals came into Washington to host their own anti-Trump march. These were the Hillary voters who boycotted the inauguration and now wanted to make their voices heard. I even personally heard Madonna say that she wanted to “blow up the Whitehouse.” As time goes on with the rhetoric and riots, liberals are showing themselves to be a radical terrorist hate group, aren’t they?

THE D.C. WOMEN’S MARCH REALLY A HUGE PLANNED PARENTHOOD PARADE!

 photo 16195493_10154233779546765_2281188996021000359_n_zpsclnmplie.jpg

 photo Screen Shot 2017-02-03 at 4.50.26 PM_zpsa58cacc1.png

I found myself surrounded by the biggest crowd of abortionists, lesbians, feminists, Trump haters and Hillary voters in the world! The D.C. Women’s March was really a Planned Parenthood Parade. There were Pro-Planned Parenthood signs everywhere you looked. Looking at the sea of women, I thought to myself, “These people are the reason that there are millions of abortions a year.” The good news is that we set up shop with our banners and bullhorns right in the middle of the street their parade was on so that we could loudly and boldly proclaim the truth!

 photo 16195331_10154237595801765_6917860213175674809_n_zpsklqw1uao.jpg

 photo 16114494_10154237596401765_3023937528665990236_n_zpsb2qlp3yf.jpg

Since this was a the “Women’s March” full of radical liberal women, it seemed fitting that we let most of the preaching be done by women on our team. The Bible teaches that women should minister to other women. I think it is good that these wicked women were rebuked by men of God but I am especially glad that we had women of God on our team to tell these people what a real women is supposed to be like.

The truth is that feminism has the spirit of rebellion. They rebel against the authority of their fathers, they rebel against the authority of their husbands, and they rebel against the authority of God. The feminist movement is a movement of rebellious women who want to be in charge themselves. In Genesis 3:16 God said that the woman’s desire would be for her husband but he will rule over her. Feminism seeks to reverse God’s order of things. The truth of feminism is this – they want a woman to rule over every man in the country. It’s called, “The First Woman President.” They want to rule and reign over men. The sisters on the team preached about biblical submission to authority – to God and to their husbands.

 photo 16114236_10154237594071765_4613781445857945515_n_zpsqlz9szsk.jpg

One of the things I have personally noticed is that conservatives have rational arguments, which is why they are so successful at talk radio, but liberals just have brainwashing chants. It’s funny because liberals think themselves to be “open-minded” and “Free-thinkers” but the fact is that they all chant the same things. If anyone disagrees with their liberal agenda they are labeled as “hateful.” Anyone who speaks out against them is called a “racist, sexist, homophobe.” They don’t have any actual arguments, which is why they fail at talk radio. It seems like conservatives can be categorized as more “thinkers” whereas liberals are just “feelers” who are only governed and moved by their out of control emotions. As we stood and preached the Bible, the liberals surrounded us with their typical chants of, “No Trump! No KKK! No Fascist U.S.A.!” Since they don’t have any substance they must resort to mindless chanting.

 photo 16195607_10154232786146765_2741904785600887173_n_zpsdc8lzoc0.jpg

It is amazing that when street preachers use signs to communicate our message we are told that we are just going to “turn people off” and that this is not an “effective method.” But when the liberals want to have their protests and marches, they use signs galore! One woman had a sign that said, “We are the Daughters of the Witches You Didn’t Burn.” And one guy even had a hat that said, “Make America Gay Again.” These examples just give you a small glimpse into the type of people we were ministering to that day.

 photo 16174738_10154237593561765_7122055621114258192_n_zps6um9bpeh.jpg

 photo 16142622_10154237594711765_4633673346214530291_n_zps928ummfn.jpg

We had signs that said things like, “Abortion is Murder.” They had signs that said things like, “Smash the Patriarchy!” The truth is that liberalism is a satanic attack on the family unit God instituted. Look at the liberal agenda – feminism, abortion, homosexuality, etc. Every one of those is an assault on the family unit. I have said in the open-air, “Feminism is the leading cause of divorce today!” Satan’s desire is to destroy God’s creation – mankind. And the backbone of all of our societies is the family unit. To destroy the family is to destroy society.

When we finally left the Women’s March a crowd of the women started cheering and chanting, singing “Good Bye” to us as we walked away. But I made a very interesting observation as we left. These liberals had littered all over the streets of D.C. and were leaving it a filthy mess! Trash was EVERYWHERE! What is interesting about this is that the liberals try to paint the republicans and conservatives as the “big polluters” who are ruining the planet. Liberals want to “save the planet.” But during the Trump Inauguration when D.C. was filled with republicans and conservatives, the streets were SUPER clean. After the liberal Women’s March, with all the Hillary voters and Trump haters, the streets were EXTREMELY filthy. How ironic.

STREET PREACHERS INVADE D.C.

 photo Screen Shot 2017-02-03 at 4.07.49 PM_zpsgjjfezfq.png

Every four years Washington D.C. is flooded with people from all across the world to watch the Presidential Inauguration. This is a perfect opportunity for street preachers to reach the masses with the gospel of Jesus Christ!

Since so many people flood into D.C. during this time, parking and lodging is difficult. But we were able to find a local church that let us sleep with sleeping bags in one of their rooms and then we took the subway into the city every day.

GETTING TONS OF MEDIA COVERAGE

 photo Screen Shot 2017-02-03 at 4.31.05 PM_zps7ff0crpn.png

One of the great things about preaching at a big event like this is not only that people come from all over the world to watch the event but also media from all over the world comes in to cover the event. This gives us even more of an opportunity to spread the gospel across the world!

We had various interviews from different news agencies throughout our trip. I had recently been contacted by a film student from New York that wanted to know my campus schedule because he wanted to make a short personality documentary for his class. I invited him to the inauguration and he showed up and followed us around for a couple days. He filmed the preaching and did an audio interview with me. He is not a Christian and I found out that his girlfriend is a make-up artist for CNN (apparently the make-up artist for Anderson Cooper), so I am hoping he doesn’t put any liberal spin on his short film. We will see.

PREACHING TO RICK HARRISON OF PAWN STARS

 photo Screen Shot 2017-01-24 at 2.58.19 PM_zpsvrpfpszu.png

During the pre-inauguration event the day before the inauguration we preach to a line of Trump supporters going to an event at the Lincoln Memorial. I recognized one of them as Rick Harrison of “Pawn Stars,” a History Channel TV show about a Pawn Shop in Los Vegas. As a business man he was a critic of Obamacare because of the increase he had to pay in premiums for his employees.

I noticed that he tried to cut the line by showing the security his I.D., hoping his celebrity would get him in. When they turned him away he walked back a little bit and then cut the line in front of where we were preaching. So I preached to him, “You need to repent and get right with God, Rick. Just like you have to get into this event by going the right way, you need to get to Heaven by going the right way – Jesus Christ.”

A CHINESE PASTOR DECIDED TO JOIN THE TEAM

 photo Screen Shot 2017-02-03 at 4.31.20 PM_zpsmrt9uejc.png

One stranger saw us out there with our signs and bullhorns and came up to us and said, “Are you guys preaching Jesus Christ? This is awesome! Wow, this is amazing!” He loved what we were doing. He was a Chinese brother who pastors and teaches at a seminary in California. We asked if he wanted to preach and he readily said “Yes!” He even gave part of his sermon in Chinese, he said in case there were any other Chinese people there.

It is not every day that Christians see street preaching going on and readily join the team! I wish more pastors and seminary teachers would hit the streets with the gospel! He even invited us to come and teach at his school in California, which would be great to do one day.

STRATEGY FOR REACHING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS 

 photo Screen Shot 2017-02-03 at 4.10.35 PM_zps2xffhw4b.png

 photo Screen Shot 2017-02-03 at 4.11.03 PM_zps7ovvnfcq.png

On the actual Inauguration Day the different street preaching teams came together and we stood our ground right at the main gate where hundreds of thousands of attendees went in and out! We literally preached to hundreds of thousands of people in a single day!

If you want to preach to hundreds of thousands of people in a single day, all you have to do is find a big event that will attract hundreds of thousands of people. Then stand at the gate where everyone goes in and out from holding a Jesus Sign and preaching on an amplifier. In the days of the Bible, the prophets would preach at “the gate” of the Temple and “the gate” of the city. This was a strategic location to have the greatest reach and impact!

OUR OWN MILITARY UNIT

My first concern about preaching at the Inauguration was safety. Is this going to be safe? We heard reports that protesters and rioters wanted to come and “shut down D.C.” But when I got there I realized that D.C. was probably one of the safest places in the country during the Inauguration because of how heavily guarded it was by the Police, Secret Service, and Military. As we preached, we were assigned our own military unit that circled around us and kept the crowds and hecklers back away from us!

One thing about the crowds that day was that lots of people were wearing red hats! I played off this and said, “I see you guys are wearing red hats today. Let the color red remind you of the blood of Jesus Christ! I declare that your hats are now Jesus hats! I hope that every time you see those hats today you think Jesus! Jesus! Jesus!”

MEAN FACES YELL WE ARE NOT LOVING

One thing about the Trump voters that we preached to was that there was very little heckling. Even though we preached to hundreds of thousands of them, literally only a handful heckled us. Most of them were quiet and respectful and appeared to be rational, logical, emotionally controlled people. But this apparent family of “Christians” heckled our team for a long time. They said, “The Bible warns of false prophets! You are going to be judged for this! This is not loving!” They were guilty of exactly what they were accusing us of. They came off as angry, hateful, mean spirited people at they yelled at us through their little bullhorn. It was ironic for them to be saying, “YOU ARE NOT BEING LOVING!” when they were not showing any love towards us. They looked like they had murder in their hearts, like the Pharisees and religious sinners who cried out “Crucify Him! Crucify Him!”

Our preaching, on the other hand, is loving. We warn sinners and rebuke sin out of a care and concern for their souls. But when “Christians” like this get upset, it is usually because their own sins and hypocrisies are being pointed out. They are lashing out under the conviction of sin. They want us to say, “God accept you as you are” instead of saying “God is angry with the wicked every day” because they don’t want to repent of their sins. But nothing is more unloving than sinning against God and man. It would be unloving if we did not call sinners to repentance.

HARASSMENT FROM HECKLERS

There were two groups of hecklers who harassed us above the rest. The first were some local teenagers who followed us around the city a bit as we were walking around. They yelled and screamed at us, “F@#* TRUMP” and other profanities. The other was a family who didn’t like us preaching at the gate that later saw us again in a food court. The Police had to come to calm them down.

Considering the fact that we preached to hundreds of thousands of people, the fact that we can count on one hand how many “outrageous hecklers” we had it pretty good! I requested prayer support from my Facebook friends and I think that those prayers must have been heard!

White Privilege in America? Jesse Morrell

I am a young white American male but I do not have any “White Privilege.” There are tons of black people who come from better neighborhoods than I do, went to Ivy League schools, have wealthy parents, have higher incomes, etc. You can even get college scholarships for being black, which you can call a “Black Privilege” in this country. You can be black in this country and even become the President of the United States.

The recent talk of “White Privilege” was created to stir racial tensions for political reasons. Talk of “income inequality” is just propaganda to usher in socialism. Income should be unequal because not all knowledge, skill, talent, and labor is equal. 

America is the land of the free with a free capitalistic market place and if you study hard, think hard, and work hard you can succeed in life regardless of race. But many who come from disadvantaged circumstances, like I do, would rather blame other people for their failures rather than to take responsibility for their lives. It is easier to blame “White Privilege” for your poverty than to blame dropping out of school, joining a gang, and having drug problems. It is more comfortable to blame “systemic racism” than to point out your own cultural problems.

We all have problems to overcome and set backs in life, whether you are rich or poor, black or white. But we also all have the ability to take the opportunities presented to us and to make opportunities ourselves, whether we are rich or poor, black or white.

It would do everyone much good to take responsibility for their lives, stop blaming other people for not being where they want to be in life, and realize that if you are living in America you have great privilege and opportunity compared to the rest of the world no matter what your skin color is.

Why Wasn’t God “Sovereign” in the Parables of Jesus? Jesse Morrell Refutes Calvinism

 photo BiblicalTruthResourcesHEADER_zps8a3b1e04.jpg

Below is a post I made in my Facebook Group: Calvinism, Arminianism, Pelagianism, Wesleyanism, Finneyism

______________________________________

Why isn’t God “Sovereign” in the parables of Jesus?

Luk 10:31 – And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

How come Jesus didn’t say, “and by the Sovereignty of God there came down a certain priest?”

According to Calvinists, God must be “Sovereign” or else He cannot be God. And Sovereignty, to them, means He is causing and controlling all things.

John Calvin said, “Nothing happens by chance.” (The Institutes of Christian Religion, Book I, Ch. 16, Sect. 4).

Why would Jesus even tell a parable where God was not Sovereign? What kind of world did His parables take place in? What kind of world was His parables supposed to be analogous of?

Logical Conclusion: The God that Jesus taught about in His parables was not the god of Calvinism.
