As you may know, some evangelists have been getting cited, arrested, and even prosecuted in criminal court for preaching at DMV’s (public property.) Last month I was told by a supervisor to leave the property (video here). I have since obtained a permit by the State (a permit to “proselytize”). This proselytizing permit will enable me to evangelize this DMV (upon their premises), every day for a period of two weeks.
Lord willing over the next two weeks, my goal is to hand one Gospel tract to every person, introduce myself, and then preach both the ‘Law and Gospel’ into the open air. I will then make myself available to those that might have any questions, or that may respond to the Gospel.
When I arrived today, it was then that I realized my permit didn’t begin until 8:00AM. However the lines on both sides of the DMV building grew to be lengthy by 7:15AM. Therefore I gave them all tracts, and began to preach. However the DMV supervisor came out and refused to shed me a 30-minute grace period. The police did respond, and they acted professionally. One officer received a tract, and the other refused a tract.
In the first video below, you will see spiritual warfare taking place. Satan’s demons hate the public preaching of the Gospel. One person that professed to be a Christian became very hostile, and shouted over my voice. This heckler then began to argue with a courageous Christian lady in the line (I am sorry for that). You will see her and others approach me towards the end of this video. You will also see several Christians in the crowd nodding their heads in affirmation of the Gospel. Another alleged Christian handed his tract back to me, and stated his disapproval of public preaching.
Just before sowing Seed (the Gospel) at public locations. I often wonder how many more professed Christians will oppose the preaching of the Gospel. I’m going to start publicly calling what many of them are. Often times they are one of the seven things that God hates.
“These six things the Lord hates, yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren” (Prov 6:16-19).
There was a time when I did not understand open air preaching. But I never tried to stop it. Some sow Seed, while others sow discord. Which side are you on?
Jesus warned in Luke 9:26, “For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father’s, and of the holy angels.”
To be ashamed of the public preaching of the Gospel, is tantamount to being ashamed of Jesus. To be embarrassed of the public preaching of the Gospel, is to be embarrassed of Christ. To go against the preaching of the Gospel, is to be against Jesus Christ.
Most of these professed believers that oppose the preaching of the Gospel are either not saved, or they are being convicted as they wallow in their unrepented sins. Or they are baby Christians that don’t yet understand Biblical evangelism.
Please keep them, and this outreach in prayer.
