Open-Air preaching at Helena street party.

So much has been happening that I have been too busy to blog but we have got to share the gospel with so many people lately. Amazing things happened when I was in Sidney, MT for a week. My missions blog tells the story here.  My friend Brandon come over from Sidney to hang out and do some street evangelism for a few days before we leave the country.  We hit alive at 5 with TJ and got to share the gospel with a ton of people.  Some conversations went very well and some did not but the gospel was proclaimed. 

Brandon was so burdened that he stood up amongst several hundred people and open-air preached.  The band wasn't playing yet but there was a lot of noise and commotion until Brandon yelled, "Can I have your attention" in a voice like Whitefield.  Everyone in the place stopped and turned to us.  Brandon began to speak about the fact that everyone would die one day and he asked them where they would go when they died.  Some people mocked.  Brandon kept going into the gospel.  At this time the band found out what was going on and they cranked up the speakers that were playing the radio about as loud as they could go in order to drowned out Brandon's voice.  He spoke louder but eventually had to quit because the music became deafening. 

When you go into the devils dark territory and begin to send out a great light, he will do whatever it takes to send you back to where you came from.  And this night the devil had many of his slaves ready for action.  But greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world.  Brandon opened his mouth for the Kingdom of Christ to be advanced and hundreds of people heard a short gospel message.  This is more lost people than the average Montana church preaches the gospel to in a year.  This is the means that the Kingdom of Christ has always been advanced.  Praise God for the boldness that He gives us and may He give His servants a renewed sense of boldness today and that they take this new boldness and proclaim that gospel to anything that breaths.

The world does not hate Christ. The world hates you because you are stupid and you push your stupidity upon everyone else.

Be a man, stand for yourself, and don't use God as an excuse or a crutch.

There... feels better, doesn't it? Oh, yea, when you die you are dead. Sorry, no afterlife. Better live NOW, not later.
