Rebuking Heretic Pastor of Gnostic Cult Emilio Ramos | Reformed Calvinist Exposed

Gnostic Cult Leader Emilio Ramos, Heretic Pastor of Heritage Grace Community Church in Frisco Texas, tries to “confront” Christian street preacher Jesse Morrell for Free Will Theology.

Emilio epically fails, humiliating himself and exposing his false Calvinist doctrine.

This encounter occurred at the University of North Texas during The National Street Preachers Conference.

CONFERENCE REVIEWS:

“The conference was very fruitful in that several students/truth seekers connected with me via fb afterwards. Righteous seeds were sewn and I believe with all my heart the Lords word will not return void. His works are being perfected in the Saints and I look forward to learning how to be a better light, a better witness, and more faithful in the area of OA Evangelism, the least supported and most needed area of ministry. Thank you for hosting this event in honor of our risen Saviour! I look forward to serving next year.”

~ Kristi (Wylie, Tx.)

“The conference had brought men and women across the country to hear from both recent to seasoned open air preachers. We were edified in hearing from God’s heart what we as street preachers needed to hear as well as things we didn’t think to hear. But we were not left hearers only, no, we were able to put into practice what we did hear and preach and see the work of God move on college students and strangers alike. Praise God I’m looking forward to next year to see the working of God move again.”

~ Sebastian (Tyler, Tx)

“All I can say is that this conference was excellent! Bible centered teaching, preaching, and exhortation. Daytime/nighttime outreaches were well planned and timed. Fellowship with like minded brethren was greatly edifying. Looking forward to next year!”

~ Zachary (Ashland Ky)

“Wonderful conference, we only stayed for 1 full day, but just that day was worth the drive, the hotel, etc!!! Jesse, thank you for allowing me and my friends to not only join you in preaching, but allowing us to be an influence/speak at such a wonderful conference. Grateful for everyone we got to meet and talk to, looking forward to next year!”

~ Jonathan (College Station, Tx)

“The conference was a great opportunity to meet up with other like-minded brothers and sisters in Christ and to learn how to deal with police, hecklers, lukewarm Christians and more. Kyle gave a great talk on the importance of building disciples to carry on the message and to grow the kingdom. The time of fellowship was just the charge my batteries needed to help me be even bolder when I return home to preach. Thank you to all who put the event together, and to all the great people I got to meet.”

~ Buddy (North Carolina)

” I am new in the street preaching community and this conference to me was great. To be around people who have been open air preaching for many years and being able to learn from them and get to know their heart was both a blessing and edifying. So I would say even if your just getting started this conference was a great way to learn from others without having to go through what they did. From handling police to the lukewarm and learning that evangelism and discipleship should go hand in hand gave a solid foundation to start making Christ known in the open air. And also getting firsthand experience with outreaches and solid biblical teachings. True blessing looking forward to next year.”

~ Caleb (North Carolina)

“It was great to meet new open air preachers who are truly saved and love the Lord Jesus Christ and want to serve Him in the beauty of holiness. It was refreshing to be with brethren of like precious faith. Where no pretense was needed.”

~ Jim (Oklahoma)

“Being with men and women who are the on the front lines of the evangelistic front is alway encouraging. I came to the National Street Preaching Conference To learn from there experience and wisdom and heart for the lost. Received a fresh powerful burden of the Lord over the sins of the world seeing the hate in the huge crowd towards Jesus and his word. Praying that men and women will answer the call of Jesus Christ to Preach the Gospel in America and beyond. Come join the National Street Preaching Movement and take our cities back for God.”

~ Kyle (San Antonio, Tx)

“The National Street Preachers Conference was a great opportunity to be poured into and then have a chance to pour out again. Many conferences you attend are set up for you to sit back and learn but this one is set up to put into practice what it is you have just learned right away. This is a meeting filled with doers and not just hearers. It blessed me to see these Saints join together to reach the lost and to equip and counsel each other in wisdom and love. The guest speakers were excellent and the gospel preachers inspiring. Looking forward to next year when I can bring a group I am raising up from my church so they can experience the blessing I did. To God be the glory!”

~ Roger (Nacogdoches, Tx)

“It was an honor to be part of the first national street preachers conference. The Lord used the men in this conference to reawaken in me a burden for proclamation. As a young preacher the wisdom I can glean from these men is priceless. I’m taking back the things I learned into the church to raise up more preachers and to bring more people to the conference next year! Everyone with a desire for more of God should be at this conference.”

~ José (San Antonio, Tx)

How Water & Fasting Healed my Chronic Fatigue

Click Here for FREE Christian Theology Books


Chronic Fatigue Healed By Water and Fasting

I realized that I battled with “chronic fatigue” for many years because of “chronic dehydration” and not enough fasting time for the body to heal. (The body heals during times of fasting).

I cannot tell you how happy I am to have found the “intermittent fasting diet,” / “one-meal a day diet.”

I have an eating window roughly between 5-8pm, where I get all my calories. Usually just one meal around 5 or 6 – enough calories to maintain my proper weight. (I used to be slightly overweight before I started this new diet. I quickly lost the 10 pounds I needed to lose.)

I’ve been disciplined in this new lifestyle for maybe over a month now and I have never felt healthier and better. I literally felt sickly before because I was so lethargic, simply because I wasn’t giving my body the long enough fasting time it needed and enough water to make the energy I needed.

Whereas before I always felt like I needed a nap, now I have energy all day long.

Whereas before I was always looking at energy drinks or coffee to get through the day, now water is my energy drink. I realized that I just wasn’t drinking enough water for my cells to properly function!

Whereas before my body always wanted to sleep in and sleep long and I’d still wake up feeling tired, now I can sleep 4.5 – 6.5 hours and wake up totally refreshed and ready to go.

I used to go on periodic 3 day fasts to temporarily heal my chronic fatigue, but it always came back eventually, now I have a lifestyle of lots of water and lots of fasting time and this is a much easier lifestyle with much better results.

It felt before like I was sleeping my life away, because I could easily go to bed at 8pm and wake up at 8am, and still feel tired all day long – never really feeling fully awake.

I am so excited now because my days are long again and I have energy to get things done. I can be so much more productive now for the Lord!

I remember hearing Ravenhill preach on how John Wesley was disciplined with his wallet, disciplined with his hours, and disciplined with his eating. That’s good discipleship!

DISCIPLINE YOUR EATING AND DRINKING!

Did NASA Really Recreate the “Origins of Life”? A Scientific Critique from a Christian

Did NASA Really Recreate the “Origins of Life”?

A Scientific Critique from a Christian

By Jesse Morrell 

The Nasa website said:

NASA Study Reproduces Origins of Life on Ocean Floor

A time-lapse video of a miniature hydrothermal chimney forming in the lab
.
Actually, NASA created an amino acid by intelligent design in a lab. They did not create DNA, which is necessary for life.
.

Fox News said the NASA experiment “produced the amino acid alanine and the alpha hydroxy acid lactate”

.Proteins are made up of amino acids but DNA, made up of nucleotides, is necessary for the specified arrangement of amino acids to make various necessary proteins.

The intelligent arrangement of nucleotide bases in DNA cannot be accounted for by natural causes or natural processes.

Another failed attempt by empirical materialists to demonstrate the origin of life by mere natural causes alone, attempting to show that God is unnecessary for the origin of life, which the news readily hails as a success for the sci-fi theory of evolution.

This one really is #fakenews and a #nasaconspiracy 🤪

The Fox News article does say, “While it’s important to note NASA has not created life itself in the experiment…” but the headline says that they recreated the “origins of life” which is misleading.

You cannot show the “origins of life” without showing the “origins of DNA” which is the greatest dilemma for natural evolution.

The Miller Urey Experiment of the 1950’s created amino acids, so I don’t see the break through for this recent Nasa Experiment.

These experiments assume an outdated protein-first theory, which tries to bypass the DNA dilemma. But you can’t have self replicating life without DNA, so the origin of DNA is what the origin of life research needs to answer.

The headline should have read, “Nasa Recreates Amino Acid in a Lab by means of Intelligent Design, just like they did in the 1950’s.”

A COUPLE COMMENTS

My friend Jeremiah Waldrop rightly said, “Creating amino acids, then claiming you know how life originated is like creating mud, then claiming you know how the pyramids originated.”

And my friend Joel Park humorously said, “Amazing. It only took “millions of years” of human development and intelligent design and engineering to still not actually make life. Compare this development to the idea that life came from random chance + non-life. This experiment only supports the idea of intelligent design: God.”

Neuroscience: What Porn does to the Brain

Rapists & Serial Killers

Brain Damage from Pornography

By Jesse Morrell

After reading various neuroscience studies on the effects of pornography, I can tell you, the results are frightening.

First, the brain compensates for the over sexual indulgence by creating less dopamine receptors.

This leads to things like loss of excitement and erectile dysfunction.

What used to arouse no loner does, so the person hard wires their aggression drive into their sex drive, so they start engaging in behaviors like slapping, choking, bondage (fantasy rape) etc.

This is how the road of pornography has lead to many rapists and even serial killers.

Porn can cause serious brain damage.

What does the future of America look like with a generation raised on pornography?

Unless society repents and turns to God, which would heal our brain damaged society, the future will be full of more kidnappings, rapings, and killings.

A Critique of Penal Substitution: Did Jesus Suffer Eternal Hell on the Cross?

EternalTorment

Did Jesus Suffer Eternal Hell On the Cross?
A Critique of Penal Substitution 

by Jesse Morrell

Advocates for the theory of Penal Substitution say that Jesus “took our penalty,” “suffered God’s wrath” and “endured the agonies of hell on the cross.” They say that all of the eternal torment that sinners would have suffered in hell was endured by Christ on the cross.

I argue that by no stretch of the imagination can it be said that Christ suffered on the cross all the pain and suffering that sinners would have suffered in eternal hell. Not only because Christ could never have suffered from a guilty conscience, which could be the worm that never dies, but because eternal suffering by definition never terminates. An eternal penalty cannot exhaustively fit into a temporal experience. Eternity, by definition, doesn’t fit into six hours. The penalty of the law calls for a fire that is never quenched.

Saying that Jesus suffered, not merely in his humanity but in his divinity or infinite nature doesn’t solve the problem. Some say that Christ endured eternal hell, in His infinite nature, within the time of six hours.

That position is certainly inconsistent for those theologians who hold to divine impassibility, which say the divine nature cannot suffer, but regardless, the penalty of the law is that the sinner suffer in hell forever, not that a divine substitute with an infinite nature suffer for six hours. The penalty of the law is not that an infinite nature suffer for a second or more, thereby rendering infinite suffering within a finite time frame. Indeed, six hours of an infinite nature suffering would be excessive and unnecessary if all that is needed is one second of suffering to fulfill the demand for eternal torment. Still, the penalty of the law is that the sinner suffer forever. Christ’s atonement, even if it were endured in His divinity, could not have been the exact and literal penalty of the law.

It is not only inconceivable to say that Christ suffered eternal torment in six hours, it’s a total contradiction. Eternal torment is never ending, whether the nature of the being who endures it is infinite or finite.

And, for the sake of an atonement that solves the governmental problems of pardon, would be unnecessary. It is only deemed necessary in the theory that says the exact and literal penalty of the law must be inflicted upon the sinner or his substitute. But as a substitute for penalty, the atonement only has to meet the ends of penalty and not be absolutely identical in its nature or duration. A substitute is never identical to that which it substitutes.

All that was necessary was that the suffering of Christ be an adequate substitute for the punishment of the sinner, not that his sufferings be exactly identical. What was necessary was that His suffering for our sin would honor the law just as much, if not more so, than our damnation. What was necessary was that His suffering for our sin would deter subjects of His Moral Government from sinning, if not more so, than our damnation would have.

When these ends are accomplished, an adequate atonement is made even if His sufferings were temporal and not eternal. The value of His atonement is equivalent to the eternal damning of sinners, nay, is far greater. His sacrifice is priceless. His atonement is invaluable. And therefore, our penalty can be remitted and our sin debt pardoned through His sacrifice of suffering for six hours on the cross. Christ didn’t need to suffer eternal torment in order to save sinners from their sin and penalty.

Christ made an Atonement for our sin without suffering the exact and literal penalty of the law. Indeed, the object of an Atonement is to substitute penalty, fulfill the purposes of penalty, and thereby render the literal penalty remittable.

The Psychology of Soul Winning  By Jesse Morrell

The Psychology of Soul Winning 

By Jesse Morrell 

The Bible says:

“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.” Proverbs 11:30

There is a real wisdom that goes into soul winning. In fact, there is a real “psychology” to it, as there are various states of mind a sinner must go through on the pathway to conversion to Christ.

Charles Finney, the great American Revivalist, taught that there were four distinct types of sinners: Careless Sinners, Awakened Sinners, Convicted Sinners, and Converted Sinners. Where the person is at in these four stages determines how you should witness and deal with them.

If a sinner is careless, they don’t care about God. They have no interest. So you start by getting them interested. When I am open-air preaching, I might start off by pointing out, “You’re all gonna die!” This get’s them interested in spiritual things.

Or, as Finney said, sometimes it’s the death of a family member or friend that first gets a sinner from a state of carelessness to a state of being awakened.

Once awakened, they are inquisitive about God, Christ, salvation, the Bible, etc. But they still aren’t ready to be converted. They have to go through an experience of deep conviction over their sin. This is when you need to talk to them about the law of God and the sins they have committed. When they see their sin and how awful it really is, when their conscience has done its work and they admit that they are hell-deserving sinners, now they see their need of the salvation that is offered in Christ Jesus.

Many people confuse convicted sinners with converted sinners but this is a fatal mistake. Just because a person feels bad over their sin doesn’t mean that they are a Christian. Preachers sometimes seem to think that the unregenerate are all careless over their sin, so if a person feels convicted this must mean they are regenerate. To the contrary. Conviction simply means that their conscience is working. It doesn’t mean that their hearts have been converted and regenerated. It doesn’t mean that they are submitted to God and obedient to Him.

Once the sinner is in a state of conviction, you must urge him to immediately repent and turn from his sins, offering to him God’s promise of forgiveness and pardon if he will simply repent. A person is not truly converted to Christ until they have forsaken all of their sins.

As you can see, it is important to recognize where the sinner is at in these stages and to deal with them accordingly. Are they careless, awakened, convicted, or converted? Every time you are witnessing or open-air preaching, think about these things and may the Spirit of God lead you with the right words to say at the right time to the right person.

Is the Atonement of Christ Justice? How the Atonement of Christ Satisfied Public Justice, not Retributive Justice by Jesse Morrell

Is the Atonement of Christ Justice?

How the Atonement of Christ Satisfied Public Justice, not Retributive Justice

A Critique of Penal Substitution 

By Jesse Morrell 

JusticeintheAtonement

By definition, the punishment of the innocent instead of the guilty cannot be a satisfaction of retributive justice. Retributive justice demands that the guilty, not the innocent, be punished. Retributive justice requires that each moral agent be treated according to their personal merits or demerits. That is why the atonement of Christ should not be viewed as the punishment of the innocent on behalf of the guilty. Such a scenario would be totally unjust, according to retributive justice.

If a man commits murder and the penalty he deserves is capital punishment, it would be unjust to let the murderer free and to execute an innocent person instead in His place. It would be ridiculous to say, “Well, justice requires that somebody die. So if we aren’t going to execute the murderer, we have to execute somebody else to satisfy justice.” No, justice doesn’t require that somebody die. Justice requires that the guilty die. Which is also what the Bible says, “The soul that sinneth it shall die.” Retributive justice is always according to personal guilt.

The Bible says Jesus suffered for our sins and was sacrificed our sins, not punished for our sins. Never mind the fact that the punishment our sins deserve is eternal hell and there is no way, by any stretch of the imagination, can it be said Jesus suffered eternal hell. Just punishment always requires personal guilt. Without personal guilt, there can be no just punishment. Retributive justice requires the punishment of the guilty sinner and the non-punishment of the innocent. The atonement therefore cannot be a satisfaction of retributive justice because in the atonement of Christ the innocent suffers and the guilty are set free.

If the atonement was not, and could not have been, a satisfaction to retributive justice, what was it? Rather than being a satisfaction of retributive justice, the atonement was a satisfaction of public justice. As a substitute for punishment (not a substitute in punishment), the atonement publicly displayed God’s hatred for sin and regard for His law just as the punishment of sinners would have. The atonement of Christ publicly displays and publicly communicates the same things that would have been publicly displayed and publicly communicated to the universe by the eternal damnation of sinners. When the universe looked upon the damnation of sinners, they would see that God hates sin and upholds His law and therefore would be deterred from following in mankind’s example. And when the universe looks upon the suffering of Christ for our sins, which takes the place of our eternal damnation in hell, the universe again sees that God hates sin and means to uphold His law and is therefore deterred from sinning like mankind did. The atonement of Christ is a public deterrent from sin just as the punishment of sinners would have been, so the governmental purposes of punishment are satisfied in the atonement, thus rendering the punishment of sin dispensable under God’s moral government.

In other words, the punishment of sin (which is eternal hell) can be withheld through the atonement without God giving the universe the impression that He doesn’t hate sin or that He will not uphold His law if others in His universe were to transgress as well. It would be unjust to the universe for God to forgive mankind without an atonement because that would encourage further sin in His universe. But now that the atonement of Christ has been made, God can set aside the penalty of the law in the forgiveness of sins without encouraging further sin in His universe since His character is publicly displayed in the atonement of Christ as it would have been in the punishment of sinners. The atonement made it possible for God to be just and yet not punish sin. Forgiveness is the non-punishment of sin, which would be unjust without an atonement. But now that atonement is made, He can set aside the punishment of sin in forgiveness and still be just to His character, His law, and His universe, because the atonement accomplished the governmental purposes of penalty.

The death of Christ for the sins of all men renders the penalty of the sins of all men remittable. That is, the atonement of Christ makes sin forgivable, but not automatically or unconditionally so. Sinners must repent of their sins in order for their pardon through the atonement to be safe to the universe. The atonement, as a medium of forgiveness, makes salvation available to everyone but automatic to no one. The atonement makes forgiveness available to all but they must meet certain conditions in order to receive it.

What does this kind of atonement accomplish? The atonement makes salvation available unbelievers while also at the same time making salvation actual to believers. It’s an amazing accomplishment. The atonement solved the dilemma between justice and forgiveness. Since forgiveness is the remission of penalty, yet penalty serves governmental purposes, how could God accomplish both the forgiveness of the sinner and the governmental purposes of penalty, if penalty is remitted in forgiveness? Answer, the atonement of Christ which substitutes penalty. God can now be just to all His obligations without punishing sin. He can be just to His character, His law, and His universe, even while he remits our penalty.

The atonement, properly understood, really shows the Genius of God. The atonement is the greatest revelation of the character of God to the universe. It demonstrates His hatred for sin, His holy regard for His law, His love and goodwill towards sinners, and His genius as the Moral Governor of the Universe, solving the problems and dilemmas that such a Governor faces. There is no greater understanding of God than what comes through the atonement of Christ.

Another Mission Trip to Canada!

I was only home from my first mission trip to Canada for a month before I left for another one. On my first trip we preached in Dunnville, Niagara, and Toronto. This trip we preached in Cornwall, Montreal, and Ottawa. When I first started my street ministry 16 years ago, I had no idea God would open up so many doors for me to preach the Gospel in so many cities.

Cornwall Canada

36047728_10155592892571765_5583851432085291008_n

There is a church in Cornwall Canada called “Gospel Truth Outreach” that is very active in street ministry. They invited me out to do some Evangelism Seminars at their church and then join them on outreaches in various neighboring cities.

I preached four times in the church during my trip, on “How to Convert Sinners,” “Is Street Preaching Effective,” “Street Preacher Secrets,” “Your Sin Hurts God!” These videos are not on my Youtube yet but I am exciting to say that they soon will be.

SERMON: HOW TO CONVERT SINNERS

Screen Shot 2019-02-18 at 1.09.13 PM

The Bible says, “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.” Proverbs 11:30

There is a real wisdom that goes into soul winning. In fact, there is a real “psychology” to it, as there are various states of mind a sinner must go through on the pathway to conversion to Christ.

Charles Finney, the great American Revivalist, taught that there were four distinct types of sinners: Careless Sinners, Awakened Sinners, Convicted Sinners, and Converted Sinners. Where the person is at in these four stages determines how you should witness and deal with them.

If a sinner is careless, they don’t care about God. They have no interest. So you start by getting them interested. When I am open-air preaching, I might start off by pointing out, “You’re all gonna die!” This get’s them interested in spiritual things.

Or, as Finney said, sometimes it’s the death of a family member or friend that first gets a sinner from a state of carelessness to a state of being awakened.

Once awakened, they are inquisitive about God, Christ, salvation, the Bible, etc. But they still aren’t ready to be converted. They have to go through an experience of deep conviction over their sin. This is when you need to talk to them about the law of God and the sins they have committed. When they see their sin and how awful it really is, when their conscience has done its work and they admit that they are hell-deserving sinners, now they see their need of the salvation that is offered in Christ Jesus.

Many people confuse convicted sinners with converted sinners but this is a fatal mistake. Just because a person feels bad over their sin doesn’t mean that they are a Christian. Preachers sometimes seem to think that the unregenerate are all careless over their sin, so if a person feels convicted this must mean they are regenerate. To the contrary. Conviction simply means that their conscience is working. It doesn’t mean that their hearts have been converted and regenerated. It doesn’t mean that they are submitted to God and obedient to Him.

Once the sinner is in a state of conviction, you must urge him to immediately repent and turn from his sins, offering to him God’s promise of forgiveness and pardon if he will simply repent. A person is not truly converted to Christ until they have forsaken all of their sins.

As you can see, it is important to recognize where the sinner is at in these stages and to deal with them accordingly. Are they careless, awakened, convicted, or converted? Every time you are witnessing or open-air preaching, think about these things and may the Spirit of God lead you with the right words to say at the right time to the right person.

Montreal Canada

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.08.20 AMScreen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.09.05 AM

Montreal was a city that I have wanted to street preach in for over ten years. I’ve preached in Ottawa, Toronto, Windsor, Winnipeg, Niagara, and elsewhere, but never Montreal. One time as a teenager I went to Montreal with some friends but didn’t do any street preaching and I’ve regretted it ever since.

The thing about Montreal is, everyone speaks French and I don’t! However, even though they strongly prefer that you street preach in French, they understand and speak English perfectly well. Besides, I think street preaching in English only helped me get more attention.

There was a busy street corner with lots of foot traffic from the subway where we started our outreach. I lifted up my voice and rebuked sin and it didn’t take very long before I got a crowd of young people and street people.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.11.01 AM

As the day went on, the crowds came and left a few times. At one point I decided to try a new location: an empty bench right next to where we were preaching. I thought maybe the added elevation would help me gather another crowd. I was right. I had only been preaching for a few minutes when a heckler came by and stood up on the bench right next to me. As he and I began to interact and dialog, a crowd in front of us started to gather.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.11.35 AMScreen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.12.21 AM

All I remember about his message was that it was horrible. His evil heart was showing.

He was advocating for every type of sin you could imagine. Drugs, homosexuality, prostitution, etc.

He was so filthy and blasphemous. He said God didn’t care if we sinned, that God wanted us to sin, that God accepts us in our sins, etc.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.12.05 AM

This older man walked by and listened for a few minutes at what I was saying and then at what the heckler was saying.

He then decided to rebuke the heckler and tell the crowd that I was right.

If I remember right, he comes from a Muslim background but converted to Jesus Christ.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.13.08 AM

Eventually the city Police arrived and gave us a hard time for standing on the bench and using the amplification.

We already had a pretty full day at this point but we continued to preach for a little longer, without the bench and without the amplifier.

All in all, it was a wonderful outreach! I was so happy to be hitting the streets of Montreal with the Gospel of Jesus Christ! But I had no idea about the hard time we would soon have in this city on our next outreach there.

SERMON: IS STREET PREACHING EFFECTIVE? 

Screen Shot 2019-02-18 at 1.17.53 PM

People often watch our youtube videos and see the opposition and hostility of sinners and then ask, “Is this really an effective way to reach people?”

The fact is, when sinners get convicted of their sins they either react in anger or in repentance. The fact that sinners get angry and hostile when we preach is actually a good sign. If unconverted sinners are apathetic when you are preaching, you might be doing something wrong.

The Gospel is effective. Asking if street preaching is effective is the wrong question. It depends on what you are street preaching. If you are street preaching the Gospel, it is effective!

I told the church, “Street preaching with the anointing of God is effective.” Praise God we see sinners convicted and come to repentance EVERY. SINGLE. MONTH. It’s amazing what God is doing and how much the Church tries to oppose Him in it!

I preached, “You know what isn’t effective? Doing nothing. If you do nothing, nothing will happen. We have to do something!”

SERMON: STREET PREACHING SECRETS

When I was first studying the art of open-air preaching, I’d watch some VHS tapes of a couple different open-air preachers and I saw how they were surrounded by a crowd of people engaging them in questions. That is what I wanted to do in the open-air. Surrounded by a crowd of sinners asking you questions about the Bible!?! It doesn’t get any better than that!

But when I first started going out to the streets to preach, actually drawing a crowd was a very difficult task. When I first got started, drawing a crowd of 10 people for 10 minutes would have been a HUGE accomplishment! I preached nearly every day for two to three years without really drawing much of a crowd. Now, I can draw a crowd of 100-500 that stay and listen for 3-5 hours. It took practice but the strategies are very simple.

Of course, you want to spend time in prayer before you go out and ask the Lord to anoint your Words, for His Spirit to draw in listeners, etc. But there is also the practical side of things. God created us and placed us in a practical world.

First, preach on a sin you know someone will heckle you about. Homosexual, abortion, transgenderism, etc, are all perfect examples.

Second, keep preaching and hammering on the sin until a person stops and begins to heckle you about it. Remember, your target audience is those who disagree with you. You want them to voice their disagreement with you so that you can openly discuss it.

Third, engage with this heckler in dialog and debate until a crowd gathers. It won’t take very long at all. Nothing draws a crowd faster than two guys publicly arguing. Paul used to “dispute” daily in the market place and “reason” about the Scriptures. That is what we want to do.

Once a crowd gathers, you can then address everyone. You can ask the crowd if they have any questions, share your testimony, etc. And if you notice that the crowd starts to dwindle down and people are losing interest, just start back at step one again. You can repeat this process all day long and have a huge crowd the entire day!

Ottawa Canada

I first preached downtown Ottawa in 2005 but it was very cold at night and there was a blizzard. I was happy to return this time during much better weather!

We walked around and scoped out the area to find the best spot to launch our attack against sin and settled on this bus stop area.

It was great to see the pastor of the church start the open-air preaching! I wish all pastors were good examples to their flocks when it comes to evangelism!

I preached second and managed to go for only a few minutes before the Police arrived.

There was a lesbian in the crowd who didn’t like our preaching. I suspect she is the one who called the Police.

All the Police asked is that we move just a little bit because we were technically on “private property” owned by the bus transit. No problem.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.24.43 AM

Just a few feet away was a great street corner to preach on. I made sure I preached underneath the city street sign, so that I couldn’t be accused of preaching on “private property.”

This area had a bus crosswalk. On one side of the street was a shopping mall and on the other were small stores. It got lots of traffic and I was able to engage some of them in dialog.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.30.32 AMScreen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.31.18 AM

The lesbian who I first noticed in the crowd when we first got started, whom I could tell by the expression on her face was very upset about our preaching, apparently went and made her own sign to protest us.

We had moved around to a few different locations. Apparently she wasn’t able to find us at first but eventually found us.

She held her sign in front of us to block us from preaching. Her sign said, “My love is not wrong.”

We started to minster directly to her about her sin and we could all tell how her demeanor changed. We started to sense some conviction.

We all shared our testimonies. I used to be a drug addict and drug dealer. The pastor used to be a burglar. We both found the Lord when we were locked up. Our testimonies seemed to minister to her.

We told her that we would be praying for her. And at that point she told us her name, so that we could pray for her by name. That was a good sign… unlike her original sign!

SERMON: YOUR SINS HURT GOD! 

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 2.48.38 AM36288240_10155603362491765_4088880918163357696_n

I was honored with an opportunity to speak to the whole congregation on Sunday. I spoke on The Emotions of God. The topic was fresh in my mind because I had just published a book on that topic.

Most sinners never think about what their sins do to God. They think about how their sins affect them. Maybe they think about how their sins affect their family and friends and those around them. But they almost never think about how their sins affect God. And God is the one who is most hurt by sin! He’s been hurt by sin from the beginning! He is hurt by sin every single day!

The Bible says that God is grieved over sin. God is broken hearted over sin. God is even provoked to jealousy, wrath and anger over sin. Sin interferes with the happiness God deserves! As Christians, we should feel deep sympathy for God. We should live holy because we love Him and don’t want to displease Him. And we should seek to convert sinners from their sins because we want God to be pleased.

RETURN TO MONTREAL

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.15.31 AM

When we returned to downtown Montreal we found a slightly different street corner to preach on this time. It was nearby where we preached the first time. It also had lots of foot traffic from the subway and the crosswalks.

The acoustics were especially nice at this location. My voice, without any amplifier, was booming off the buildings very nicely for everyone to hear me loud and clear.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.13.42 AM

One group of men walking by was a bachelor party. The men who was getting married was wearing a wedding dress. He was just goofing around. Nevertheless, I rebuked it as an abomination. As hard as my rebukes were, they were still a friendly bunch towards me. They were obviously excited and happy about the upcoming wedding.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.14.28 AMScreen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.14.59 AM

I had a very nasty heckler come up and start screaming and yelling at me, bumping into me, trying to bump me off the soap box, etc.

To this day I am still unsure if this was a man who looked like a woman, or a woman who looked like a man. It was a transgender person. That much I do know. And it was not very happy with my preaching!

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.15.56 AM

This man also came up to me and heard only a little bit of what I was preaching and immediately was super intense and wanted to get violent. The Police at this point started to arrive and to listen to the preaching, so this man held back the violence he obviously wanted to engage it. His muscles were all tense and he told me that he wanted to beat me “so bad.” He was upset that I was calling homosexuals to repentance.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.16.32 AMScreen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.16.55 AM

The Officer who first arrived stayed behind on the sidelines for a few minutes to watch what was going on. Hecklers in the crowd at that point were falsely accusing me of “hate speech,” or for saying that certain people should be put to death – something I never said. They were just trying to get me in trouble with Canadian Hate Speech laws, which I’ve been familiar with for years. I do not advocate for the execution of homosexuals, which is forbidden to advocate for in Canada. I simply warn homosexuals of God’s judgment, like I do all sinners, and call them to repentance, like I do all sinners. I don’t discriminate in my preaching as I call all sinners to repentance equally, offering salvation to all men equally.

Eventually the Police Officer pulled me aside to talk with me. He was particular upset that I was an American and that I came to “his city” to do this. I explained to him that it isn’t just his city that I do this in. I do this all over the world. It’s just who I am and what I do.

Unfortunately, a brother on the team got stirred up during all of this and started preaching extremely loudly while I was trying to talk with the Police Officer on the side. The Officer pointed at him and said to me, “Don’t you think that is unreasonable noise?” I said, “That’s debatable.” (He had no amplification and he was competing with the noise of the cars and trucks). Apparently I gave the wrong answer so he wrote me a ticket for “unreasonable noise.” I should have told the Officer, “I’ll tell him to tone it down” and maybe he wouldn’t have written the ticket. The ticket was around $100 I think. But another brother on the team took my ticket and said he would pay it for me, which was a huge blessing.

All in all, this mission trip to Canada was a huge success! The church was stirred up for the work of evangelism and thousands of people heard the Gospel out in the streets! Canada needs Jesus and I was happy to offer Him to them!

MINISTRY TESTIMONIES

Making a Difference for the Kingdom of God!

People often ask, “Does anyone actually come to the Lord through this type of ministry?” Yes! All the time! I get message after message every single month from people all over the world telling me how they repented of their sins and turned to the Lord because of our street preaching. I share testimony after testimony in each of my newsletters!

Here are just a few more recent testimonies. Please PRAY for these people! 

Hello brother Jesse my name is Joshua , I am 23 years old living in California and I wanted to reach out to you for advice pertaining to the bible and the steps on how to be saved. I’ve repented of some sins such as smoking, fornication, and drinking. I really want to escape all sins because I feel guilty inside and I know right from wrong in my conscious. I just want to follow God and live holy for him. I didn’t have a father growing up and from watching your preaching videos on youtube for about a few months now, I was instantly drawn to the word but not showing my works. Slowly I started to understand God’s word from your own preaching and just yesterday, Wenesday September 5th, I have decided to repent of those sins listed above.

Brethren, again I urge you, please pray for these people! God is on the move. Lives are being changed and transformed! But we need to be diligent to preach the Gospel and pray for lost souls!
