The past little bit has been very eventful. Spent a little over a week rampaging the mid-atlantic area with Michael Marcavage. Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey all felt the effects of our crazy “yelling”.
Thruout the week we hit two college campuses, a phillies baseball game, a strip club, three downtown NYC parks, a homosexual rally and the Apple blossom festival. I pray the word went out clearly and am now leaving it to the Father to do as He sees fit.
Two things that really stood out to me. Number One. I have grown up around street-preaching. Seen it most of my life and met many men around the nation that are witnessing in this way for Christ. But I am blown away by how many people are jumping into this ministry over the past few years. Everywhere I go I am meeting people who have been led into this thru the ministry of Ray Comfort. These are for the most part reformed people which is very encouraging because outside of this there is little evangelism to speak of going on from people in those camps. I speak generally knowing that there are some churches which are exceptions to that. So it has been very encouraging to find these like-minded believers boldly standing up and proclaiming Christ to a dying culture. May the word go forth with power!!!
Secondly I remember during my time with a ministry school in Wisconsin how I used to get depressed about how we would preach and preach but would seldom see fruit. The world marched by on its way to death without a second glance. I have been on a long theological journey the past three years. It has led me to a place where I now see salvation in a very different light. If I now, while preaching the true gospel with a real heart for the lost, see the world pouring by and if not ignoring you then hating you then I am able to rest in that. It hurts to see so many rushing to their doom but now I see how apart from the grace of God giving them eyes to see and a heart of repentance not a one would be saved. So now I still preach my heart out and am concerned for them but I can rest and not beat up on myself for not preaching it right. The King will do the work. We need only preach it right with a real heart of concern.
So with all that said….
May the King be glorified in all that we do!!!
