 “Cleansing the Temple” was written by a young fiery street preacher. Jesse Morrell was only eighteen years old in 2003, preaching in the streets of New England, when he began to write the contents of this book. It is not your typical Christian book. It is a compilation of very passionate articles calling the church of believers to uncompromising holy service to God. This book is primarily about purity, prayer, and preaching. The hope is that this book will cleanse modern Christianity to be the bride that Christ wants her to be.

“It is my prayer and belief this book will be used by God to purify and perfect His church to do the work of the ministry and raise up laborers for the harvest.  It is packed with scripture, anecdotes, historical nuggets, personal examples and testimonies.  It is not necessarily a devotional book but it will challenge you to seek the Lord.  It is not necessarily a book on doctrine but it is full of sound doctrine and will make you want to read your Bible.  It is not necessarily an open air training manual but will prepare you for open air ministry.” ~ Micah Armstrong,  2016

“Cleansing the Temple was a life and perspective changer…..” ~ Jason

TheEmotionsofGod

“The Emotions of God: How Man Can Bless or Hurt God” by Jesse Morrell is an exhaustive biblical study on the Divine Feelings.

Does God really have emotions? Or is He impassible? The question is simple enough but it has been much debated by Christians over the centuries.

The Bible portrays God as having emotions but are these real descriptions of Him?

Can God change in any way or is He absolutely immutable in all things?

Is God timeless or does He experience duration?

How should we live in regard to our obligations towards God?

Can man hurt God or inflict pain upon Him?

Can we contribute to His happiness?

These are the types of questions that are involved in this debate, which this book gives you biblical answers to.

It will challenge your understanding of God and edify your walk with Him.

As the Scriptures are expounded upon this topic, you may never view God the same way again.

“I have added the Emotions of God by Jesse Morrell to my most influential books. I would recommend it to all Christians.” ~ Stephen

NaturalAbility

The Natural Ability of Man: A Study On Free Will & Human Nature by Jesse Morrell is an exhaustive theological volume that defends the Christian doctrine of man’s free will against the false Gnostic doctrine of man’s natural inability.

This volume explains the truth of man’s freedom of choice in light of Church history and other doctrines like total depravity, regeneration, atonement, the baptism of the Holy Spirit, predestination, repentance, faith, the believers security, original sin, etc.

“The most comprehensive exposition on man’s natural ability in print.” Dean

SinfulNature

Does Man Inherit A Sinful Nature by Jesse Morrell is a thorough examination and refutation to one of the oldest theological excuses for sin – a sinful nature.

With an abundance of Scripture, keen logic, and an appeal to Christian teachers throughout history, this book not only shows that men are not born with a sinful nature but that sin is actually contrary to the nature God gave us.

“Jesse does an outstanding job of tackling and answering questions on a very misunderstood part of mans existence.” Oahu

We need Your Help! Support the Mission $100 a month

Hey Everyone! 

Jesse Morrell here.

Thanks for subscribing and following our evangelism ministry! 

I am working on RE uploading to YouTube over 1,000 of our open air preaching videos that we’ve filmed the past 22 years of ministry!

I also have plenty of new content coming in good time. Just stay tuned for that! 

I’m currently in the mission field of Alaska, wrapping up my extended mission trip up here, and then returning to the lower 48 for some campus preaching tours.

If you are looking for a faithful and fruitful ministry to support, we are in need of more financial supporters.

Our ministry is making a big difference. Recently I was contacted by a former drug dealer who said he came to the Lord through our preaching. Another person said they were a homosexual and then got born again as a result of our preaching. Another person said they repented of lukewarm churchianity and got truly born again. On and on it goes with testimonies people send me every month!

So prayerfully consider becoming a monthly supporter, giving $100 a month or whatever you could afford.

We are a family of six, living by faith, serving the Lord, and we don’t just make these videos to entertain believers. We want you to know what we are doing so that you can help get behind us with prayers and support.

So please, if you are blessed by our ministry and want to help support the difference we are making, click the link and sign up to be a monthly supporter.

Thank you so much. We couldn’t do it without you guys.

MISSION TRIP: CALIFORNIA

Cali4

I’m catching up on my newsletters! This was a great mission trip to Southern California. My friend Doug lives out there and flies me out every so often to preach with him on the local campuses and streets. Doug came to the Lord, in true repentance, through my ministry many years ago. He’s real fruit of our ministry that is now a blessing to others! When your convert becomes a street preacher, that’s a good sign of a true conversion! Doug ministers out on the streets, especially to the homeless on Skid Row.

Pasadena City College Outreach

Cali14

We spent three days ministering on this campus. Apparently I didn’t take many pictures. But there is a great amphitheater where you can preach and gather a crowd that will sit and listen for hours.

The administration on this campus has always been good to us. Some campuses will send out the landscapers to blow leaves or mow the lawn, just to cause noise to disturb us. We know this because the landscapers will literally follow us around wherever we move, making it obvious. On this campus, there was construction being done in the amphitheater location but I don’t think this was done on purpose to keep us from it. We found other locations on campus that had high foot traffic and preached just the same.

The students also are relatively mild mannered. You have the typical vocal heckling, which is to be expected, but we’ve never had any “riot” on this campus like we have with others. The free speech area, the administration, the students, etc, all make this one of my favorite campuses to preach on. The sunny weather of Southern California helps too!

Hollywood Blvd Outreach

Cali8

My friend Paul joined me on this mission trip. I flew in from Texas and he came in from Missouri. He’s always fun to hang around. He’s very extraverted and funny and the fact that he’s Italian originally from New England helps us to get along very well.

Cali9

Hollywood Blvd is a great location to preach because the foot traffic is constant and you have tourists coming in from all over the world! It’s an INTERNATIONAL outreach when you preach the gospel at this location! The Lord knows how many countries you actually reach spending a day preaching in this spot!

Huntington Beach Outreach

Cali5

Huntington Beach is another great place for open air outreach in Southern California. The board walk has a large amount of foot traffic and, if you are good at drawing a crowd, there’s even an amphitheater off to the side. The best thing about amphitheater’s is that is provides your listeners with a place to sit, which means they stay longer.

Cali2

Brother Paul got us started with the preaching. As you can see, people on the board walk also stopped to listen to the preaching!

One tip for drawing a crowd is to start off loud, so everyone can hear you, and once you have drawn a bit of a crowd, tone down the volume so that the listeners have to come closer. If you stay full blast with your volume the whole time, the crowd will gather far away and stay there, so there will be less interaction.

cali3

Paul did a great job with drawing in the crowd and interacting with them. If the crowd knows you are willing to take their questions, it gets them much more engaged and willing to stay. If all you do is stand up and deliver a sermon, without taking any questions or interacting with the audience, the people won’t stop and those who do will quickly leave.

Here you can see Paul was interacting with a young boy. He had some pretty good and challenging questions, if I recall, for his age. Never underestimate the youth. Sometimes they need to be feed more meat than what they typically get at Sunday school too. Children can think deeply about life and the things of God. God put eternity in their hearts.

Cali6

Preaching to the balcony! Each location that you preach will have a different kind of crowd. This location had a lot of the younger generation. Skateboarders, surfers, sun bathers, etc. Statistically, the earlier that you reach people with the gospel, the better. The older a person gets, the less likely they are to come to Christ. Plus, the average person has to hear the gospel message about ten times before they receive it. The fact that they stop and listen shows that they are not completely hardened to the Gospel, at least not yet. Sometimes your loudest heckler ends up becoming your most committed convert. I have sen that many, many times.

Cali7

The great thing about going out witnessing and preaching with other brothers is that you can “tag team” preach. We usually preach for 5-6 hours when we go out, so having a brother to share the load with really helps. Jesus sent out his disciples to preach, two by two. Paul and I took turns preaching and we had an engaging crowd almost the entire time. The most important thing, the crowd heard the message loud and clear: “Repent and turn to God. Jesus is alive and He’s coming back.”

Ministry Testimonies! 

If you are looking to find a faithful, fruitful ministry to pray for and support, consider supporting ours. Here are some of the testimonies that people have sent me from all over the world!

 

REPENTED OF FORNICATION AND SEEKING GOD

Cali10

 

RAISING UP MORE STREET PREACHERS

Cali11

HELPING OTHER LABORERS LEARN AND GROW

Cali12

INSPIRING OTHER BELIEVERS

Cali13

ENCOURAGING WORDS FROM BELIEVERS

Cali15

 

DRUG DEALER COMES TO JESUS

THROUGH STREET PREACHING

Cali1

I recently heard that the average drug dealer is responsible for around 500 deaths! That’s incredible! Think about how many lives are potentially changed and impacted by leading just one drug dealer to the Lord! Winning just one soul, regardless of their background, has the potential to change the world because they then become a witness themselves to touch and change countless souls!

Please pray for all the people who heard the Gospel and were touched by the message! Especially pray for the new converts, that they grow and stay strong in the faith!

MISSION TRIP: NEW YORK! 

72572250_10156622390756765_351888148030029824_n

A New Yorker who watches my YouTube videos and loves them really wanted me to come to New York to minister in the area. It had been many years since I had preached in Northern New York so I was excited to go. After two flights, I was there!

SUNY Oswego (State University of New York in Oswego)

72304324_10156626332141765_7863505805197180928_n

It had been over ten years since I had preached at Suny Oswego. We always had a wild time on this campus. What was great is that they have a wide open “public square” in the middle of campus that is a perfect “free speech forum” for sharing the Gospel.

Oswego

It didn’t take long for me to get my first heckler, preaching on some hot button topics. And that heckler helped me draw an instant crowd! Before we knew it, I was surrounded by 300 students as I preached the gospel, shared my testimony, and gave Christian apologetics to their many questions.

oswego2

Too bad I didn’t get to preach that long before the Police arrived and demanded my papers. In years past this campus was wide open for free speech. You could show up and preach unannounced. But this time, they demanded that I go get a permit.

When I went to get a permit, they told me it was like a 10 day waiting period or something like that. That doesn’t work for a traveling evangelist on the go. So I had to find another campus to preach on. Not before the campus news crew showed up at the Permit Office to interview me about what just happened outside….

Reading the campus policy later, I realized that they have a special exemption for “spontaneous speech” that doesn’t require a permit. That’s what I should have claimed! Maybe next time. God used us on a different campus as a result.

JEFFERSON COMMUNITY COLLEGE

This was a small community college that I had never preached on before. The smaller community colleges often get ignored and neglected by the traveling evangelists who stay on the big campuses. However, Jesus sent his disciples out to preach in the cities and the villages. I figured, this is like a small village that needs to be stirred up with the Gospel.

72550249_10156632995956765_6563643861552332800_n

The first day that we went to campus, it was pouring rain. Rain doesn’t stop me from preaching. If I have an umbrella and the students have an umbrella, I can usually draw a crowd regardless of the rain. With my host home and a small group, we stood in the rain with umbrellas holding signs while I stood on a bench and preached. However, because this campus was so small, we couldn’t get anything going. There was no “big class change” at all. Usually just 1-3 people at a time walking from here to there.

However, the next day, I was able to get it going.

72648611_10156633677556765_2349613459013894144_n

When you have a campus that is pretty desolate, but you know there’s people inside the buildings, you sometimes just have to preach to a dead campus until slowly but surely a crowd forms. “If you preach it, they will come,” is what I tell myself. And sure enough, the crowds came. First you get 2 or 3 people, twenty minutes later another 5 people stop, forty five minutes into it you have 15-20 people, after two hours of preaching maybe a crowd of 30, etc. That’s how you do it on these smaller campuses. But you might have to preach the first 30 minutes to nobody. The key to success is don’t give up. Keep going.

Just like Suny Oswego, the campus security and administrators came out and tried to shut us down. I asked for their written free speech policy. They said they heard I was on Suny Oswego and got run off and that their policy is the same as their’s. I said Suny Oswego didn’t tell me I couldn’t preach. They have a free speech policy that allows for it. This put the administrators in a dilemma. I knew for a fact that this campus didn’t have any policy in writing, so there wasn’t anything they could do to stop me as long as I asked for the written policy. My strategy worked and they just stood helplessly by for hours as I preached to a large crowd of students, engaging in dialog back and forth about the Bible and the things of God.

It’s sad that today’s universities want to shut down open discussion and debate, especially about the things of God. These are supposed to be places of higher learning, a place for discourse and the exchanging of ideas! Sadly, they are run by liberal indoctrinators who want to build a godless anti-Christian society. It’s a good thing guys like me show up on campus!

My host held my camera the whole time and recorded these outreaches. Back at my host home, they had a large family gathering and they put the recordings on for everyone to watch. I think my host particularly wanted me to come to minister, not just to the surrounding area, but to the family. I was happy to do it.

VISITING AN OLD FRIEND

73098880_10162631251205387_3379148601975373824_n

72782972_10162631216785387_9075136188435660800_n

My friend Miles lives in Northern New York. My first time preaching on Suny Oswego back in 2006 was with him. In fact, he was one of my first preaching partners. He lived in my van with me when we were 20, traveling the country, preaching the gospel everywhere that we went. He was also in my wedding! It was nice to see him after all these years.

72489412_10156632794266765_189465034789748736_n

This is the view from his back deck. Not bad. He’s done well for himself with various businesses. But he told me, my visit with him was inspiring him to get back out there on the campuses! Lord, send the laborers!

WHY GOD REJECTED CAIN’S SACRIFICE

Genesis 4:2-7:

4:2 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

4:3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.

4:4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering:

4:5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

4:6 And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?

4:7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

Why wasn’t Cain’s sacrifice accepted?

God told him why:

Gen 4:7 – If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

Cains sacrifice was not accepted because he was not doing well.

The Bible says:

Pro 15:8 – The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.

Pro 21:27 – The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind?

The problem was that Cain was a wicked man who was not doing well. His sacrifice was therefore not acceptable to God.

Abel was a righteous man and therefore His sacrifice was acceptable:

1Jo 3:12 – Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous

Heb 11:4 – By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh

The Bible says:

Psa 51:17 – The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

All this goes to show that a sacrifice or atonement does not save an impenitent man. There are many who think they are covered by the atonement of Christ while they continue to sin every day. The atonement doesn’t work like that. That’s the error of Cain.

Jde 1:11 – Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain

The atonement is not unconditionally saving in its nature. Only those who are broken over their sin and forsake their sin are covered by the Atonement of Christ.

Pro 28:13 – He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

A BLOODLESS SACRIFICE?

The first theory I heard as to why his sacrifice was rejected was because Cain’s offering had no blood. But there were grain offerings in the Bible, corn offerings, flour offerings, along with gold, silver, brass, and wine:

Exo 30:13 – This they shall give, every one that passeth among them that are numbered, half a shekel after the shekel of the sanctuary: (a shekel is twenty gerahs:) an half shekel shall be the offering of the LORD

Exo 35:5 – Take ye from among you an offering unto the LORD: whosoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, an offering of the LORD; gold, and silver, and brass

Exo 35:22 – And they came, both men and women, as many as were willing hearted, and brought bracelets, and earrings, and rings, and tablets, all jewels of gold: and every man that offered offered an offering of gold unto the LORD.

Lev 9:4 – “a grain offering mixed with oil”

Lev 9:17 – Then he brought the grain offering, took a handful of it, and burned it on the altar, besides the burnt sacrifice of the morning.

Num 15:5 – “And the fourth part of an hin of wine for a drink offering shalt thou prepare”

Num 28:28 – And their meat offering of flour mingled with oil, three tenth deals unto one bullock, two tenth deals unto one ram,

Neh 10:39 – For the children of Israel and the children of Levi shall bring the offering of the corn, of the new wine, and the oil, unto the chambers, where are the vessels of the sanctuary, and the priests that minister, and the porters, and the singers: and we will not forsake the house of our God.

Bloodless sacrifices are acceptable but any sacrifice from a wicked man with a wicked heart is unacceptable and an abomination to God.

1Sa 15:22 – Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

If Cain had been a righteous man, instead of a wicked man, who did well, his offering would have been accepted.

Gen 4:7 – If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted?

OUTREACH REPORT

MISSION TRIP TO MONTREAL CANADA

A brother in Canada got me a plane ticket to come to Montreal Canada and spend some time with him in fellowship and outreach. He’s been watching my YouTube videos for a couple years and just started street preaching himself. I found out that he’s been preaching all summer long in the streets of Montreal and even raised up a team of friends to do it with him.

When I was going through the border crossing I had to go through extra screening because I am in their system as a preacher who has gone to Pride events in Canada to preach repentance. I had to spend 3-4 hours at customs answering lots of questions. They searched my phone, my computer, and all my bags. They asked if I was going to a Pride event and I said no. And I told them that I have NEVER been arrested in Canada though I have visited Canada once or even twice a year for over a decade.

They asked if I was going to be doing any preaching while in Canada and I told them, “That’s just who I am. I talk to people about Jesus everywhere I go. If I stay here too long, I’ll start talking to you guys about Jesus too.” They even asked me, “What is your message?” And I got to talk to the border agents about sin, hell, Jesus, repentance, salvation, etc. They said, “That doesn’t sound so bad.”

Praise God they eventually let me in to Canada and I was able to spend a blessed time with the Christian brothers and sisters in that country.

 

Prayer Walking the City

The first thing we did was walk around the city for some prayer walking and seeing the sites. Montreal is a very old city with some beautiful architecture and gorgeous churches. Here are some of the photographs I took of the City:

These Churches are the remnant of days gone by – times of the past when the community was full of church goers.

These beautiful buildings were built by generations of faithful givers to the church.

It’s sad that many of these gorgeous churches are relatively empty today.

Throughout Europe there are gorgeous old cathedrals which reflect the faith of past generations, which are now being turned into night clubs!

A church that isn’t growing is dying.

Montreal City Metro

71310076_10156558657556765_5998525589596667904_n

Our first outreach was to the busy city metro.

Crowds of people come and go to catch the buses and subways, plus the park has lots of people that just seem to hang around.

This is the type of place where I first started my ministry back in Connecticut 20 years ago.

It brought back good memories!

70612801_10156558657456765_6623197805064224768_n

Pastor Andrew is a local friend and contact that I have in the area.

He came to Montreal to join us at this metro station with members of his church.

It was wonderful to arrive at the park and find that he was already busy open-air preaching!

I wish every Pastor would preach on the street with his congregation!

Screen Shot 2019-09-27 at 10.41.54 PMScreen Shot 2019-09-27 at 10.42.05 PM

When I started preaching I was able to get the attention of a crowd of young inner city kids.

Preaching about gangster rap music, puffing on blunts and sipping on Gin and Juice always does that.

Once I started talking their language, they were all ears.

 Screen Shot 2019-09-27 at 10.43.00 PMScreen Shot 2019-09-27 at 10.43.11 PMScreen Shot 2019-09-27 at 10.43.31 PM

This girl was one of my best hecklers at the park.

She loved the attention and the camera.

She was loud and boisterous, had a filthy mouth and played tough, but I could tell she was really listening and absorbing what I was saying.

She wasn’t violent or disrespectful. I shared my testimony with everyone and it planted many seeds.

St. Catherine Nightlife 

This is a busy section of downtown in front of a church with a very large sidewalk that is perfect for street preaching.

The metro system drops and picks people up right here.

Many corners in Montreal have busy foot traffic but this is one of the best places for street preaching.

Screen Shot 2019-09-27 at 11.12.07 PM

The team had a nice speaker and microphone that my host had been using for his outreaches.

The advantage of a speaker system is not only that you can be heard despite all the inner city noise, but you can also speak softly into the microphone at opportune times.

Once a nice crowd was gathered, I was able to do some street apologetics. Asking questions like, “Who wrote the genetic code?” and “What is the meaning of life?” are great conversation starts for street apologetics.

This is the best part of street preaching – praying with lost souls!

This woman heard our preaching and felt the conviction of her conscience.

She said her life was a real mess and asked us for prayer.

Please pray for her!

Pray that she’ll repent of any and all sin in her life, trust in Christ and live holy, and that God will bless her abundantly and give her the life He always intended for her to live!

McGill University 

70375568_10156560610471765_5517202799600861184_n

McGill is a university in the city that has this perfect city sidewalk to street preach on.

I don’t think anyone has ever preached here to this campus before!

We stirred up the campus with our hell-fire preaching.

68658411_10156560610511765_1389118515176275968_n

I gathered a nice little crowd of students and engaged them in dialog back and forth.

After maybe an hour and a half of preaching I turned the crowd over to some other brothers on the team.

We had one female heckler who really didn’t like our message of repentance.

She thought we were being intolerant and so she called the Cops on us – which of course was her being intolerant of our practice of religion!

71325275_10156560610726765_4678452457569779712_n 70387832_10156560610756765_8185506276541726720_n

When the Police showed up, they got some information from her and from us and realized that we were fine and within our rights.

The Police spent most of their time talking to the woman who called, just trying to calm her down.

I’ve always had a pretty good experience with the Canadian Police, with only a few exceptions.

St Catherine Day time

70888138_10156558657661765_7785339625203040256_n 70794201_10156563183636765_8222246255720398848_n

When we arrived to preach outside of St Catherines during the day time, we found that there were already multiple street preaching groups out there from other churches!

That is always a nice thing to happen.

Usually street corners are empty and bare and in need of a street preacher.

Occasionally, in certain locations at certain times, there aren’t enough street corners for everyone!

That’s a good problem to have!

Screen Shot 2019-09-27 at 11.07.38 PM

While other groups were preaching at the busy street corners, I went in front of the church and began preaching towards the staircase.

I always like preaching towards a large staircase because it offers a crowd a nice place to sit and get comfortable.

If you can get a large crowd to sit down in front of you, you really have their attention and they will stay for a while.

Screen Shot 2019-09-27 at 11.12.50 PM

This man came up to talk to me and was very serious about the things of God.

He was under conviction.

He confessed to me some horrible sins he has done.

I was able to pray for him.

Say a prayer for him if you can.

Sunday Morning & Evening Church Service

70669229_10156566854241765_6830510675236749312_n

Pastor Andrew invited me to speak to his church for the morning and evening service.

I went through Romans 7 verse by verse and explained it’s true meaning – that the law aggravates sin and doesn’t set us free from sin, but the gospel does.

The Gospel accomplishes what the law cannot.

Romans 7 is not the Christian life but taken in context with Romans 8, outlines the experience of being convicted by the law in order to be set free by the Gospel.

70935824_10156566858256765_6904914051562733568_n

In between the morning and evening service, the church got together for a fellowship dinner! Breaking bread with the brethren!

This is how church is supposed to be!

 

Bible Study outside City Skyline 

70925028_10156567792566765_2644043770781237248_n

I’m blessed to be able to travel and bring the gospel all over the world.

As I travel, I visit some pretty cool and beautiful places.

A few years ago it dawned on me, I can take advantage of these scenic locations to start filming Bible Studies for my Youtube channel!

My friend took me to a park that had a great skyline view of the city of Montreal.

Screen Shot 2019-09-26 at 1.29.21 PM 70978847_10156567850921765_1231284226599419904_n 71833112_10156567850966765_5636526199493623808_n

In this Bible Study I went through 1 John, which is a great refutation to Gnosticism.

Unfortunately, a lot of people misuse verses in 1 John because they ignore both the immediate context of those verse and the historical context in which they were written.

You can watch this Bible Study on my YouTube channel.

Street Preaching the Alaskan Iditarod Dog Sled Race!

OUTREACH REPORT

Every year Anchorage hosts an opening ceremony for the annual Iditarod Dog Sled Race!  This race helps preserve dog sledding and commemorates the 1925 run to Nome Alaska to bring medical serum to treat an outbreak of diphtheria. Balto is the famous dog that lead the original run. This was the 50th Year Anniversary.

I invited the street preaching community to join me here in Alaska for this outreach, offering free food, lodging, and transportation, but it appears everyone was too afraid of the cold. It was 16 degrees during our outreach. But one faithful brother, my friend David Grisham, showed up for the preach. He came straight from his Mardi Gras outreach. The two of us hit the streets together before, during, and after the event.

My family and I are staying in Alaska for an extended mission trip and I packed light for myself since we are a family of six and needed the extra space for the kids. I didn’t bring any of my signs and banners so instead, I ordered a new sign online and had it mailed! It was less than $100, printing and shipping.

I made it double sided with two different scriptures. The front was Acts 26:20 “Repent, turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.” This was the message God told Paul to preach to the Gentiles. I especially like the emphasis on repenting and then proving your repentance with your works. The back of the sign was 2 Corinthians 5:10: “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ…” You can’t go wrong with Scripture Signs!

The day before the race we went downtown but surprisingly, there were very few people walking around. David passed out tracts and talked to people while I held my sign and also street preached a little. The people we did encounter were mostly tourists from out of state who came in for the race.

It was a very warm week leading up to the Race and the snow everywhere was melting and disappearing. In order to have snow for the event, for the dog sleds to ride on, the city used dump trucks the night before to fill the streets with snow. However, on the day of the event, it started to snow long and hard. In no time, snow was everywhere. It snowed about 12 inches. And the people came out to watch the ceremony in big crowds despite the cold and snow.

If you stood in the snow for a little while, your head and shoulders would quickly get a pile of snow. Since we were going to be outside for a few hours in the cold we wanted to stay dry as best we could. We found a nice overhang to stand under which was the perfect location. Crowded of people, tourists from all over the world, walked up and down the street.

I held my “Repent, turn to God, and do works meet for repentance” sign. David passed out “Free Iditarod Souvenirs,” a post card with a Dog Sled Team on the front and a Gospel message on the back!

These gospel tracts went like hot cakes! I would estimate a ratio of about 3 to 1 for acceptance and rejection. If one person rejected the tract, three more accepted it. David passed out hundreds and hundreds of these to all the tourists. We talked to people from Florida, Oklahoma, Texas, Alabama, etc. And at the end of the event, the tracts were not paving the street! We saw people hours later who were still holding on to their “Free Iditarod Souvenir.” People even took extra for their family and friends!

That’s a successful outreach! I was very happy to be apart of the 50th Anniversary of this historic event! What a blessing!

FAMILY FUN

Alaska is beautiful and I am not getting tired of snow! We still get excited every time it snows outside!

The Missionary Life is full of fun and adventure! We are so blessed to be able to homeschool our family, travel as missionaries to spread the Gospel, and let the kids enjoy themselves along the way!

That my friends is a frozen waterfall! It’s gorgeous. We are grateful to God for His wonderful creation!

It was 17 years ago, March 1st 2005, that my wife and I started our courtship relationship! That’s the longest relationship I’ve ever been in. Haha. At 37 years old, we’ve been together almost half of my life! So glad the Lord picked my wife Krista to be my wife and to raise our children together. Her strengths make up for my weaknesses and she is exactly what I was looking for and what I needed. She is a priceless blessing to my family and I.

ALASKA MISSION TRIP

Alaska

Finally catching up on my newsletters again! Our mission trip to Alaska!

God sent me  to Alaska for five years in a row! This was mission trip number five!

Alaska is a real mission field with a lot of lost souls. Anchorage in particular has a very high crime rate, with marijuana dispensary stores all over the place, and a large homeless population. There’s also remote villages where the natives lives.

I’ve never preached downtown Anchorage without being assaulted. That’s how much of a mission field it is!

What makes Alaska a unique ministry trip for me is that the whole family gets to come. My host home in Alaska has always been kind enough to invite the whole family! What a blessing!

UNIVERSITY OF ALASKA, ANCHORAGE

The University of Alaska in Anchorage rarely ever gets a campus preacher, unless I come to town. Five years in a row I have started my campus preaching tour on this campus at the beginning of each semester. Usually I go to campuses with friends but on this particular day, I went armed only with my Bible and the Holy Spirit. That meant that I couldn’t get any video of the outreach, but I did get audio which I uploaded to YouTube.

After just a little bit of preaching, I was able to get a nice little crowd together in front of the cafeteria. The main topic I wanted to talk about was Atheism, as I was freshly armed with an Intelligent Design argument from DNA from a 700 page book I had just read. This gave me perfect material for campus!

The argument is that the specified arrangement of nucleotide bases in the genetic code requires an intelligent mind for the same reason that an intelligent arrangement of letters on a page does. Letters can be arranged in any random order but for them to mean something, an intelligent mind has to arrangement them in a particular order. That’s the difference between “Siemhta si Uitpds” and “Atheism is Stupid.” The same is true with the genetic code.

Ive shared this argument on many campuses and have never had an atheist refute it. They don’t even try.

INDEPENDENCE MINE

Alaska2

Independence Mine is an old abandoned gold mining operation that has been turned into an Alaskan State Park.

Set high up a mountain, it has a beautiful view.

As you can see, this place is perfect for a family hike!

It’s also perfect for family pictures!

But more importantly, great scenery to film a YouTube Bible Study!

I filmed a Bible teaching here called, “The Greatest Heresy on YouTube – Repent of Your Sins is Works Based Salvation.”

I explained in the video how dangerous it is to confuse repentance and works. The Bible distinguishes between the two. “Bring forth fruit meet for repentance” it says. And also, “Repent, turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.”

False teachers today try to do away with the requirement of repentance for salvation by falsely categorizing it as “works,” so that they can say “repent of your sins is works based salvation.” What a demonic deception this is!

I’m currently working on re-uploading all my YouTube videos, including this one. Keep a look out for it and subscribe to my YouTube channel if you haven’t already.

And why film only one Bible Study at this beautiful location when you can film two?

I found another great location with fog rolling in over the mountain and filmed, “Why I Believe in the Trinity! God in Three Persons!” just in time before the fog covered everything!

Fog certainly has a mysterious feel to it and the Trinity is possibly the greatest mystery about God.

ALASKA STATE FAIR

When you bring the whole family, it’s just Outreaches and Bible Studies but Family Fun time too!

Here you can see my youngest daughter Mikaela enjoying the petting zoo!

The Alaskan State Fair brings in people from all over Alaska and entertainers from all over the United States.

One of our favorites is the Lumber Jack show which we enjoy with our host home every year.

DRIVE TO FAIRBANKS ALASKA

While I’ve been to Anchorage Alaska many times, Fairbanks is a place I had never been to before.

The University of Alaska in Fairbanks was on my bucket list of campuses I’ve wanted to preach on.

The drive from Anchorage to Fairbanks is over six hours, especially with children, but its a beautiful drive that is well worth it!

See what I mean? Gorgeous scenic driving!

And then we saw the Batmobile that looked like it was straight out of the 1960’s TV show… so we stopped to get a picture of that too.

Mt. Denali is the highest mountain peak in North America! You can see it on your drive to Fairbanks from Anchorage. Of course the family had to stop to see that. This was a great Homeschool Field Trip for the kids!

ABORTION CLINIC, FAIRBANKS

The first place we preached in Fairbanks was outside of the Abortion Clinic!

I had a couple of brothers that joined me on these outreaches and one brother, David Grisham, brought his Grim Reaper costume. That was perfect for getting our message across outside of Planned Parenthood.

Of course, when you are protesting abortion in a Grim Reaper costume in Fairbanks Alaska, the Police are bound to show up. Planned Parenthood called them. But they were fair and nice. They said as long as we were on the public sidewalk there’s no problem. It’s because we took the Social Media picture at the front door that Planned Parenthood called. But that was just our photo location. The rest of the time we were on the sidewalk.

UNIVERSITY OF ALASKA, FAIRBANKS

Finally I made it to the University of Alaska in Fairbanks…. and the campus was dead. And I mean dead dead. There was hardly anyone walking around. And the class changes seemed short, small, and few.

We would start preaching and would preach for an hour or two before we finally got a little attention. But once some students came out to protest us with their rainbow flag, it was all over. That was all we needed to stir up a lot more students to come and listen.

Typically when you preach on a campus that has never seen a campus preacher before, students don’t know how to react. Sometimes these campuses can be shy. They don’t know or understand that with this sort of thing, heckling is encouraged. Heckling is what we were going for. We want the students to heckle us. We want them to engage us in public debate. We want to create a scene and stir things up. And once the students realize that, they start having fun and stay for hours.

It was nice to have a brother to tag team preach with. I can preach by myself for 5-7 hours but don’t prefer it. I’d rather share the crowd with a brother and preach 1-3 hours before rotating.

And just like the University of Alaska in Anchorage, I argued against Atheism using the Intelligently Designed DNA argument. And just like in Anchorage, not a single atheist even tried to refute it.

NORTHERN LIGHT SHOW

Fairbanks is a great location to see the Northern Lights. We had seen some while in Anchorage, off in the distance, but nothing like this. We prayed for the Lord to give us some great Northern Lights and these danced right over our host home for maybe 3 hours!

They kept coming and at one point was thick over our heads like a fog covering the entire sky. I never expected to see so many Northern Lights. And to have them last for hours! It was the Lord blessing us with a glimpse of His beauty and glory.

This is one of my favorite pictures that I took. It looks kind of like a Dove to me. It was at this moment that I felt the Lord say, “Point your camera straight up now and take one.” I did. And this is how it turned out. Beautiful.

QUICK VISIT TO THE NORTH POLE 

North Pole Alaska! The North Pole is real! It’s a town in Alaska. And my kids got to enjoy it!

FATHER AND SON NATURE HIKE

 

My primary ministry is to my family, to my wife, daughters, and son.

Justice is my one and only son so it’s always special when we get to hang out just the two of us.

FILMING MORE BIBLE STUDIES

With so many great scenic locations in Alaska to film Bible Studies, I had to film some more.

This one was about, “Does God violate Free Will in Salvation?”

I showed from Scripture how God commands us, leads us, teaches us, influences us, convicts us, enlightens us, etc. But He does not force us. He treats us as free moral agents and uses means consistent with our free will to bring us to repentance.

I filmed another one here on “Can You Lose Your Salvation.” This one is on YouTube right now.

This is a “Open Theism Bible Study” by the lake. I got to enjoy some hot tea while the sun was setting. I was glad I was able to film before the sun completely set! But by the end of the video, it was pretty dark. This one is on YouTube as well. It talks about God in relation to time and sequence. God is active in history.

FLIGHT BACK HOME TO TEXAS

As you can see, traveling through the airports with four children is pretty fun…. and difficult…. at the same time.

MISSION UPDATE

As many of you already know, we are on an extended missionary trip to Alaska! We will be here the majority of 2022! We landed in Anchorage safely almost a month ago.

Anchorage has one of the highest crime rates in the country. I’ve preached here in years past and every time I’ve preached downtown Anchorage I am physically attacked and assaulted. You see a lot of homeless people walking around, out of their minds on drugs and alcohol. And now that marijuana is legal in Alaska, you see pot dispensary shops all over the city.

Alaska is rip for a work of God in the streets!

FAMILY OUTREACH

Our friends who have live in Alaska for a long time made a float to be in the local Christmas parade this year. In the past they noticed the Christmas parade had very little to do with God so they made a Nativity Float! And they made Gospel Scrolls to pass out to everyone with the candy!

We walked the streets as a family and loved seeing our children passing out the Gospel literature and the candy to everyone. Thousands of people came to the Christmas parade and we got to reach them all with the good news of the Birth of Christ!

Please keep us in your prayers as we continue to reach the lost with the good news of the Birth, Life, Death, and Resurrection of Christ!

Your prayers and support are helping change the world!

“Thank you for your ministry! I started out as a mocker watching your videos but now I’m a believer!”

“Your ministry saved my life and my marriage!”

“Your preaching got me through drug withdrawals in rehab!”

“I started street preaching because of your ministry!”

God is on the move! He is changing lives! And He is raising up more laborers for the harvest field!

I’ve been diligently working to get over 1,000 outreach videos back up on our YouTube channel because these videos reach people from all over the world!

Right now, my family and I are preparing for an extended mission trip to Alaska!

I started my street ministry at the bus stops in the streets of New England during the winters. I’m excited to be preaching in the snow again!

Anchorage is a city that really needs a move of God, especially on the streets, as it is full of drugs, alcohol, homelessness, etc.

We leave in a week for our family mission trip. I am excited about the kids being more involved in the ministry now that they are getting older!

We need more financial supporters!

As a family of six, battling the ever increasing prices from inflation, we are in need of more financial givers to our ministry.

Especially during the Holiday season, our support really slows down.

If you have been blessed by our ministry and you want to help get behind what God is doing, would you consider becoming a monthly supporter or giving a one-time donation?

As a missionary family, we live by faith as God puts it on the hearts of His people to help support the mission with tithes and free will offerings.

Donate One-Time or Become a Monthly Supporter

You can also give by mail if you prefer!

If you would like to get a 2021 tax break for your financial giving, make checks out to Crossroads Community Church. Or make checks out to “Jesse Morrell” if you’d like them to just be personal gifts.

Mission Trip to Teach a Ukrainian Bible School

To Teach Evangelism and Theology

There is a street preaching Ukrainian Church in Washington State who loves and enjoys watching my YouTube videos.

They go out as a church with gospel tracts and signs to preach the gospel on the streets and at local events.

They invited me to come up to help teach evangelism and theology to their summer Bible School as well as to speak at other neighboring Ukrainian churches.

What a blessed opportunity!

67152958_10156411307521765_1111902574065221632_n

As I say in my YouTube videos, all it takes to bring me out to your area is a plane ticket and a place to sleep.

They booked me a plane ticket and I flew out of Tyler TX.

66401289_10156389728411765_4113124397936541696_n

During my flight I noticed we drove past a cloud that was experiencing lightning!

I quickly grabbed my phone to take these pictures.

This is what lightning in the clouds looks like!

Saturday Bible College

65994263_10156389427416765_2863199390502223872_n

Their summer Bible College consisted of young people.

I was very impressed at how serious the young people were about God.

The young men were hard workers and the young women very polite and modest.

This was my first experience with the Ukrainian Christian culture and it was pleasant.

65890228_10156389427476765_7007536917801598976_n

I was introduced to the group and they watched a video introduction to my ministry.

Since this was my first time talking to the group I shared my testimony of how I came to the Lord, so that the group could get to know me better.

Saturday Outreach

66210253_10156392283981765_1695633451870322688_n

66293228_10156397131116765_3037342584730025984_n

Downtown Seattle is one of the churches regular outreach locations.

This was my first time street preaching in Seattle.

There was a very busy section where we set up with our signs and speaker system.

Thousands of people heard the Gospel as they walked the area.

66269080_10156392384611765_1958182942953963520_n66298436_10156392384516765_8269764047306489856_n66323322_10156392384481765_4222001750170664960_n

66457851_10156392384606765_2466771040043270144_n

As you can see, the young people all made their own custom sign to bring to the outreach.

The students were given the challenge of deciding for themselves what their signs should say.

Naturally, each sign was different!

Saturday Evening Bridge Exhortation

66029743_10156390748546765_3976325158368444416_n

66225616_10156390755466765_6461479087935324160_n

After the outreach, the group was taken to a popular sight seeing bridge to hang out and watch the sunset.

66286660_10156390780906765_7581077822488182784_n

I took the scenic opportunity to do a YouTube teaching video on evangelism.

The video used to be on my YouTube channel but since I’ve had to reset my channel, I haven’t re-uploaded it yet.

Look for it in the future.

66698752_10156390669261765_4702760847183708160_n

66344307_10156390956096765_159578526335369216_n

When you open your eyes and look around, you realize that we all live inside of God’s painting.

Sunday Night Church Service

I was given an opportunity to share during the Sunday Night Church service. Unfortunately, no video or pictures were taken. But I exhorted the church in the work of soul winning.

Monday Youth Group

Monday night I was blessed with an opportunity to speak to a Youth group, but again no picture or videos were taken. Again, I exhorted them in the work of soul winning.

Tuesday Youth Group

66634240_10156397044646765_5691494058531225600_n

Tuesday night we traveled to another large Ukrainian Church were I was able to speak. This time I did record the service. It was an inspiring message that I’ll get back on YouTube as time allows.

Wednesday Bible College

66354105_10156389427371765_6875366416028008448_n

I taught their Bible College for six hours this day I think.

I spoke on many things regarding evangelism and theology, like repentance, conversion, atonement, etc.

This wasn’t part of the original plan but when they asked me to teach, I had no problem coming up with enough material.

Be ready in season and out of season!

Thursday Waterfall

66395740_10156402944536765_1533616702665785344_n

66463654_10156402953261765_6979155516211593216_n

Thursday was a free day to me so I traveled to a sight seeing Waterfall nearby that attracts a lot of tourists.

Again I used the scenic opportunity to film a YouTube video on the topic of evidence for Noah’s flood!

Friday Night Church

Friday night I was given another opportunity to speak to a Ukrainian Church.

I was impressed with how open and receptive the Ukrainian Churches were to my ministry and message.

We need more of the conservative Christian Ukrainian culture in the United States.

That is the kind of immigration America needs!

Saturday Prayer Meeting

66457826_10156404863626765_6478306744031248384_n

66462671_10156404863701765_5721818267102740480_n66483812_10156404863656765_4750711232170819584_n

One of my hosts was a Gideon who brought me to their weekly prayer meeting.

I had never been to a Gideon prayer meeting before so that was a blessing.

Sunday Evening Church

I was speaking at a Church Sunday evening so during the afternoon I went to a local park and a local beach to get alone with God and allow Him to stir up a message in my heart.

66813577_10156405559951765_6538360587376656384_n66894583_10156405584291765_2888736089223200768_n

Other Things

66812421_10156402469211765_6336869665632944128_n

Apparently I slept through an Earthquake while I was there.

I had never been in an Earthquake before.

I did wake up as a result of it but I thought somebody had shaken me awake and I was so tired that I just went back to bed.

67086265_10156408314421765_212574209405091840_n

Besides the theology and evangelism, the best part about this trip was the Ukrainian Food!

Honestly, I wish the American diet was more like the Ukrainian diet!

67335351_10156423502506765_4046951815332233216_n

This was a book I bought while I was there.

Interestingly enough, I had just watched a documentary about the Bernie Madoff scam and then found this book for sale in the local library.

Libraries are my favorite place to buy books because you can buy them for only a dollar.

66366451_10156396498191765_5128188666501398528_n

Monday Flight Home

I flew home on Monday after a very busy week of teaching and preaching.

I had spoken to hundreds of Ukrainians.

Preached in something like 5 different churches.

Gave 15 messages or so.

And reached thousands of lost souls on the streets!

It was a blessed mission trip!

When I visited the Waterfall on my day off, I bought a travel chess set for my family at the gift shop.

It’s solid wood and good quality.

It’s nice bringing home gifts for the family when I return from a ministry trip.

Canadian Border Stops Christian Preacher

_________________________________________________________

Hey Everyone!

I’ve been so busy that I’ve gotten behind on my newsletters. I am exactly 11 newsletters behind! But these outreaches were so awesome I certainly want to post about them.

Lord willing I’ll be getting these newsletters out and get all up to date over the past few weeks.

Here is the report from my 2019 mission trip to Canada right before the pandemic hit.

MISSION TRIP TO CANADA

For a few years in a row some of my Canadian friends would bring me out annually to preach in their small town of Dunnville as well as Niagara Falls and Toronto. With the cultural digression from being a conservative Christian nation to a post-Christian nation, Europe is always ahead of the United States in. being further down that road. After Europe comes Canada. Canada has gotten to the point of persecuting Christian pastors and preachers that I have minister friends in Canada who are trying to seek alyssum in the United States, where religious liberties are well protected in conservative states like Texas. A mission trip to Canada in today’s culture is a real mission field. 

WHAT’S ON YOUR PHONE AND COMPUTER? 

For the past few years, the sinful event that I preached at in Dunville would call the border to complain about my crossing. Nothing would come of this and each year the event was surprised I crossed the border without problem. This past trip, at the border crossing, I was flagged for additional screening. While the rest of the plane went down the hallway to the left, I was told to walk down the hallway to the right. That is where border agents would question and search me for three to four hours, to make sure I wasn’t “coming to Canada to break the law.”

I explained to the agents how I come to Canada to visit my friends and we are Christians so we like to go out to the streets and talk to people about Jesus. I explained to the agents that I’ve been to Canada annually for many years and have never been arrested or detained in Canada for anything. I could tell that made a big difference with them. My wife is also a Canadian with a Canadian passport, so I told them we also come to visit family.

After questioning me and searching my bags, the border agents finally asked for my laptop and phone. I wasn’t expecting this but didn’t object. I’ve nothing to hide and just wanted to get into the country to preach and share the gospel.  He asked if they were password protected and I said, “Yes, but I can give you the password no problem.” They took both devises and connected to them, assumingely downloaded everything. And I am happy to say that as a Christian man and as a Preacher that I had NOTHING to be ashamed of. I have nothing to hide. Sadly, this would have been the end for many preachers! If the authorities got a hold of the contents of their devises they’d be imprisoned! And rightly so!

After hours of questions and searching, they said I was free to go no problem. The agent told me that this extra screening was just because “some people don’t like your message” but it’s obvious I am not coming to Canada to do anything illegal. 

And of course, I made sure to share my salvation testimony with the border agents! I’ve been stopped by Canadian border agents three times now while trying to cross the border and each time I always use the opportunity to share my testimony of Jesus! Sometimes I think that makes them want to move me along quicker! 

COFFEE SHOP CONFRONTATION IN CANADA

On my first day there while my friends were busy with other affairs, I walked to a small coffee shop. I had hoped that maybe I’d run into some people to witness to, who might recognize me from years past. That is exactly what happened. A man at the coffee shop saw me and looked stunned. He asked me if I was out of town and after I said yes, he called up his friends on the phone. 

His friends showed up and started cussing at me and threatening me with violence. I remained calm and explained my loving motives for calling sinners to repentance. We had a civil conversation by the end. But this man was so angry and loud yelling at me at first, that the poor coffee shop staff (a teenage boy) was worried and didn’t know what to do. 

I’m sure the demons that work this area were not happy that I was back. They sure seemed stirred up! 

I read a history book at the coffee shop that had a section on how this area has been traditionally hostile towards the early Salvation Army Street Preachers 140 years ago! Two Salvationists were arrested in Dunnville for “disturbing the peace” 140 years ago. Since this area has a history of being hostile towards street preachers, I knew this field needs to be plowed hard. It’s a field full of rocks and thorns. This was my 3 year and I think we are making some progress.

NIAGARA FALLS

Niagara Falls is an excellent place for open-air preaching. This is not only because of the beautiful scenery but because of the international tourism. One year tourists from India recognized me from YouTube! That shows the impact and far reaching influence the internet has for street preachers! 

There is a park that runs alongside the river where the tourists come to walk and look at the falls. We usually set up our soapbox somewhere in the park. There is also a busy staircase that goes down to some shops that I like to preach as because it has good food traffic and also provides seating for people who want to sit and listen.

This year, however, the Police told us we could not preach in these areas. Instead, they asked that we cross the street and preach on the city sidewalk. There was a busy crosswalk at that intersection, where I’ve thought about preaching before, so we just went there. The nice thing about intersections is that crowds of people have to wait for a minute before the light allows them to walk. This allows you enough time to deliver a nice little sermonette. 

DUNNVILLE EVENT

I labeled this entire event a “Sex Cult” because this is a whole subculture that is based upon sex.

The Liberals sure know how to negatively brand whoever opposes their agenda.

But branding is a powerful tool that can go either way. 

Pride Events are really Sex Cults. 

The year prior we did not have a fence between us and the crowd and they surrounded us.

This year we decided to preach outside the fence to have a nice border of protection.

It went much smoother this year as a result than the previous year.

Brethren from all over Canada came in to join us at this event.

When you have 9 large Jesus banners, it’s hard for the event to ignore the street preachers! 

Using a microphone so that all could hear, despite the loud  music from the event, a crowd of. mostly young teenagers and adults gathered on the other side of the fence to listen and ask questions. 

Since we were outside of the event and the crowd in front of us had to walk across the field to intentionally listen to us, it would be hard for them to argue that we were “forcing it down their throats.” The crowd gathered there because they wanted to hear what we were preaching and to engage us in dialog. And like Paul in the book of Acts, we reasoned about sin, righteousness, and judgment to come. 

I’ve noticed lately that most of the people at these events are young people.

Someone made this comment on my YouTube channel not too long ago. 

This shows the sad state that this generation is in!

As society goes deeper into the darkness, the church needs to shine the light brighter than ever. 

There is a whole generation of church kids who were raised on the sissified gospel of “Jesus loves you and accepts you no matter what,” who now support these Pride Events and hate street preachers that call sinners to repentance.

But like the most loving man who ever lived, Jesus Christ, we must call sinners to repentance!

I find it interesting that street Preachers are told they are doing it wrong all the time, not to shove it down peoples throats, to take a less aggressive approach, etc. But they don’t tell that to these Events and Parades that march through town.

In the United States and Canada, sinners are more evangelistic with their sin than Christians are with the Gospel. They advocate, argue, broadcast, protest, boycott, petition, and march for their cause.

Jer 6:15 – Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the LORD.

CHURCH REBUKE

While we were at it, the team thought we should visit a local church known for its compromise and worldliness and to rebuke it for not standing against this event in this small town.

Apparently none of the local churches around here actually love these people. So many preachers are compromised cowards, refusing to call sinners to repentance like Jesus did. Many pastors just love their offerings and don’t want to rock the boat.

Apparently, this event even had open support from a local pastor. And that is the best friend of the pastor of this church we rebuked. You are known by the company that you keep. 

ANIME NORTH, TORONTO

This event was a highlight of my trip that I was really looking forward to. 

We preached this event for the first time the previous year.

Lovers of anime cartoons dress up like their favorite characters to attend this event.

That makes the atmosphere more fun and festive and gives us plenty of ammo for street preaching – things to springboard off of. 

There was a wide open grassy area where we could position ourselves on the sidewalk to gather a crowd out front. 

With a portable microphone and speaker, we had a crowd of hundreds of people in no time!

We engaged the crowd in dialog and debate and had the team take turns preaching.

It was an awesome time.

Street Preachers Getting Arrested

All Across Canada and the USA

You hear in the news all the time at this point about street preachers and church pastors in Canada getting arrested.

Here are three simple points to consider:

1. This is nothing new.

This is biblical Christianity. Getting arrested for preaching is what you see in the Bible over and over again. And this is not new to Canada or the USA. I was first arrested for preaching back in 2002. Friends of mine were arrested through the 80’s and 90’s. And I just read a report of the Salvation Army Street Preachers arrested in Canada back in 1884.

2. It’s bad law.

I’ve had officers tell me, “You have free speech until it offends people.” We always win that in court. In Canada, we will see how well they fair. One Canadian street preacher was arrested and the Officer said it was because what he said was offending the crowd and resulting in the crowd to act in a certain way, as if he had any control over the crowd. Usually the problem isn’t the law itself but with how it is being enforced.

3. You just have to accept it.

It’s going to happen. Getting arrested has always been part of the job description of a street preacher. You have to get to the point where you determine to preach the gospel, regardless of how many times you get arrested. Ultimately we don’t preach because the law allows us to, we preach because God commands us to. You have to get to the point where you determine within yourself to preach the Gospel no matter the cost.

TESTIMONIES

One guy says we are pushing people away and then the next comment says thanks for opening his eyes! Criticism nullified!

What an encouragement! “See the light…. turn away from sin and live holy” AMEN! 

Pray for this man in Sweden. He repented of pornography and came to the Lord, in part from my preaching but primarily a dream.

“You are a funny preacher and at the same time your telling the truth which I like. 10/10 preaching. Unlucky I cant preach like you because I live in a socialist country (Gothenburg/Sweden). If I just Said ”Homosexuality is a sin” then they would give me a fine, I would have to pay a lot of money. But God put me here for a reason. I have seen Jesus in my dreams a lot. One of the reason I became a Christian was from dreams and your preaching. I saw in a dream when Jesus came back and he was angry at sin, in that dream i turned to my friend and Said it was to late for him (he was going to hell) but I bowed down to my king and saviour Jesus christ (have had a lot of those dreams). None of my family are christians. I became a Christian 3 years ago almost 4. And before I become Christian I watched a lot of porn and im even to ashamed to tell you what i watched (have only told God)but praise God I changed. So now you know about a brother in Gothenburg/Sweden 🙂 God bless. I’ll pray for you and your family. Tim.”

Jesus didn’t show sinners love by giving them hugs. He showed them His love by rebuking their sins. We should do likewise!

FAMILY TIME

I stay busy with ministry but not to the neglect of my family!

This was a family time at the park: 

Father and Son haircut: 

We always have family fun together, especially after I return home from a big preaching trip.
