Back in 2012 our dear beloved brother in Christ Michael Overd was arrested and prosecuted for his public preaching. However he was acquitted of those ‘criminal’ charges.

For years now I have been warning the body of Christ that Satan will use Law Enforcement as the #1 tool to ‘persecute and prosecute’ the true church. Not only as a reactive response, but in a proactive way. This below article even states “the police began looking for complaints against the long-standing Taunton preacher.”

Sadly brother Overd was arrested and prosecuted again this year, and a Muslim judge presided over his case. Long story short, brother Overd was found guilty in the court of law.

However brother Overd still mustered up the ‘Biblical’ courage to tell the Muslim judge that he must “repent” and be “born-again.”

My dear brothers and sister in Christ, this is true Biblical Christianity, not this ‘play church’ that has permeated North America. The Bible states that if we truly are living for Christ, that we will be “hated for Christ’s name sake” (Mark 13:13, Matt 10:22, John 15:18-21). And the Bible also says ‘Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution’ (2 Timothy 3:12).

In the below video brother Overd open-air preached just outside the courthouse. Bear in mind that this video was taken by the SWNS News crew, therefore it is edited according to their own liking. Nonetheless everything said by Overd was spot on. Notice that in the title of their video they called him the “hate preacher.” In the description field they referred to him as “Loud-mouthed.” Those words are expected from the world, but I’ve heard the same from those that profess to be Christian.

Brethren in the book of Revelation the Lord Jesus listed a dark list of sins that would cause many to be thrown into the lake of fire. The first sin mentioned in that long list is the “Fearful” or “cowardly.”

Jesus said in Revelation 21:8 “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

It is a grave sin to be a coward for Christ. Take notice that Jesus placed that sin in front of the other sins i.e. sexual immorality. I also wonder how many professed Christians (or “cowards”) will be pleading to the Lord, as He casts them away into eternal utter darkness.

Jesus also warned in Matthew 7:21-23 “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

Brother Overd I love you, and support you – Chaplain Bill.
