And I Saw a Devil

He walked as though he owned the place, he probably does. He was a man familiar with wealth and prosperity giving the appearance of one use to having his way. He walked with a steady gate as he slipped on his suit jacket over his blue shirt and yellow tie. His suit was grey and expensive, he had on brown leather shoes, and he wore glasses and had curly gray hair, approximately 56-62 years of age. He came around the corner at the back of the parking lot and walked by all the cars parked in the lot. He set his gaze upon me, staring at me as he walked. I was preaching from the gospels about our resurrected Savior, Jesus the Christ, the Son of God. As he continued to walk and stare intently, I thought he might come straight up to me, but he then gave a devilish grin and snicker. He then made a left turn for the door of the abortuary, inside awaited 20 women with child. Not too long after this they would begin coming out one-by-one with the gaunt faces of someone who had been medicated, walking with an uneasy gate, obviously from discomfort.
Today was the most difficult day I have had in the nearly one year of going to plead for lives with the word of God and gospel of Jesus Christ outside of an abortuary, I was without my bride or the other brothers that often come with me. I arrived on the public sidewalk, adjacent to Kings Hwy, the road on which the abortuary is located, at 8:45 AM, the parking lot was empty but would soon fill to capacity. A sister in Christ was there whom I had never met in person, but my wife, myself, and others have grown to know her via social media. As we talked and introduced ourselves, having yet to turn our attention to the abortuary, one of the men hired by the abortuary, an off duty deputy city Marshall made a bee line toward our direction, he began to try and use his position to intimidate us, saying “You cannot stand on the sidewalk with your cross, you must keep moving.” I have a 4 ft wooden cross with a question written on the cross beam, “Are You Ready?” I replied, “You are not acting in the capacity of a city Marshall, you have been hired as a guard of this place of death, I will be staying right here. You need to repent!” He then turned and walked away.
If you have followed any of my blogs lately, you would know that when out in public I have been preaching directly from the word of God, word for word. I was doing this in the hearing of the hired escort and the two men hired as guards. I would pause and call out to the mom’s and dad’s as they arrived to have their baby torn out of the womb. As I preached the word of God a woman from across the street began to curse me with much heated anger. Telling me to shut-up with many filthy curse words flying from her mouth; I turned her direction and told her that I loved her and hoped that the Lord might grant her repentance and faith in Jesus. This was when she really began to curse. The escort who sits with a stoic face while the word of God is preached began to snicker. Car after, car after, car would arrive; very often with the occupants laughing. They would get out of their car and walk right through the door of death without even giving a second glance as we pleaded with them to have mercy on their baby.
As I left this place I was filled with much sadness and grief. I had been at a place, in the middle of a busy city in America; in which a wealthy man charged poor people money to tear their child out of their womb. I think that this is the biggest problem, unbelief; people do not want to believe that this is really happening, so they ignore it. I could find solace in no one else so I turned to the Lord, asking the question: How can anyone murder their child, and how can anyone hear the word of God and gospel of Jesus the Christ and not fall to their knees in repentance and faith? I already knew the answer, they cannot hear the word of God because they are dead in their trespasses and sins, it is the same reason that I couldn’t hear until the Lord took out my heart of stone, and gave me a heart of flesh that could be penetrated by the word of God, and gospel of Christ.

What does the Lord say about this? “Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot hear My word. You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. But because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me. Which one of you convicts Me of sin? If I speak truth, why do you not believe Me? He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God." (John 8:43-47 NASB)

Today I write with a broken heart an open-letter to my nursing colleague, friend and I hope, brother in Christ William Davis, RN. Will has been accused of murder and was arrested on April 11, 2018. I write this as an open-letter because this has become an open-matter. Will Davis and Family Copied from Facebook Dear Will, I miss your smiles and your jovial laughter on our nursing unit. I first meet you about 5 years ago in the spring of 2013. My wife met you before I did; I remember her telling me, “I met a guy in orientation who is going to work on your unit, he is so excited to work on your unit and is real fun.” From that time on you were usually laughing and all smiles. Often times you brought a bag of candy to work, because of this, and your jovial laughter I nicknamed you the Candyman and would even sing in your presences, “Who can make the sun rise and cover it with cheer…the Candyman can, the Candyman can because he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good.”

The Three Aspects of Faith

Faith is made up of three things: knowledge, belief, and trust…Faith is believing that Christ is what He is said to be and that He will do what He has promised to do. (Spurgeon, C.H.) “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”  How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?. . So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. (Romans 10:13-14, 17) When sharing the gospel publicly, and more specifically through open-air preaching you will likely be stopped from preaching by someone who claims to be a Christian.  Oftentimes when preaching in open-air, you will be preaching to a moving crowd.  Someone may walk by and hear you talking about sin and judgment.  Another may walk by and hear you talking about Christ redemptive work on the cross.  I use to think that there was the possibility that those who claimed to be Christian, who stopp

Come Follow Me

Mark 10 It was Jesus’ custom to teach when a crowd gathered. He taught that it is not God’s will that a wife and husband should separate, for he considers them one flesh. Later, his disciples questioned him about this and Jesus told them that to divorce and marry another is committing adultery. Jesus used the metaphor of how a child excepts as being the way we should except the kingdom of God. Jesus corrected a rich young man’s understanding of good and showed him that to repent and follow Jesus Christ is the only good that a man can do. It is impossible for people to enter the kingdom of God but with God all things are possible. Jesus promised eternal life to all who leave whatever is holding them back from following him. On the journey to Jerusalem, Jesus told his disciples about his coming arrest, trial, humiliation, suffering, death and resurrection three days later. James and John sought honor for themselves at Jesus right and left sides in his kingdom, but he told them, it is for
