For many years, the newsletters for Open Air Outreach were only published through email. Those newsletters were not posted online. We are now in the process of archiving these old newsletters online so that they are available to the body of Christ at large to read and be encouraged and edified by them.
The contents from this post was an email newsletter sent out on 1/31/2006

FIGHTING FULL FORCE
Your Help Is Needed
The team of Jeffrey, Miles, and I is now completely together. The battle plans have been made and we are ready to fight full force to take back Americas future leaders for Christ.
The battle is going to be hard, the heat is hot, the stakes are high, but for the glory of God we are going to do it.
We need all the help that we can get. We need people who will be dedicated to regularly pray for the ministry; that the preaching be anointed and powerful and that the students will be awakened and converted. This ministry is going to need as much prayer as possible.
– Maybe you can set a time aside every day to pray for our open air outreaches?
– Maybe you can take the newsletters to your weekly bible study or prayer group to have it lifted up in prayer?
– Maybe you can write encouraging emails for the guys while on the road to keep them strong and motivated?
Pray for us as we are going to pick a fight with the devil!
Heckle: You are being divisive!
Answer: Do you know who has caused more division throughout history more then any other man? Jesus Christ! And that was His plan! “Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division”. (Luke 12:51) There are many biblical examples of Christ causing division: John 7:24, John 9:16, John 10:19.
This belief that unity is always virtue while division is always vice is wrong; sometimes it’s the other way around. There are certain things worth dividing over. If there are men who are choosing to continue in sin, while there are other men who want to obey God – that is a division which is worth it!
It is God’s will that we “be saved from this perverse generation.” (Acts 2:40). God wants there to be a division between the sinners and the Saints, and that is what I have come here for, to call people to come out from among the sinners. “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His Law he meditates day and night.” (Ps 1:1-2)
A Christian may be guilty of virtuous division, but sinners are guilty of vice-full division. You are separated from God because of your sin, and that division will cost you your soul and bring eternal suffering in hell.
While Christ did come to divide men from other men, he also came to bring reconciliation between men and God. “God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself” (2 Cor 5:19). Through Jesus Christ, because of His work on the cross, you can be reconciled back to God and no longer be separated from Him. The decision is yours to make.
Scriptures: Luke 12:51, John 7:24, John 9:16, John 10:19, Acts 2:40, Ps 1:1-2, 2 Cor 5:19
Heckle: What about those who have never heard the name Jesus? Do they go to hell?
Answer: Ignorance is not a free ticket to heaven. If it were, then missionaries do great damage by reaching out to the heathen. If they are already going to Heaven because of their ignorance, then leave them in ignorance!
If ignorance were a free ticket to heaven, then I would propose that we burn every bible, every Church, and never speak the name of Christ again! That way the next generation after us can grow up in complete ignorance, and hence go to heaven because of their ignorance.
No, ignorance is not a free ticket to heaven. The narrow road, the only road to God is Christ and Christ alone. (Matt 7:14, John 14:6)
God will judge each man, whether American, Chinese, African, or Arabian according to the knowledge that he has. And the knowledge that all men have, regardless of their country, is a conscience. And the conscience is the Law written upon their hearts. (Romans 2:15)
If there is a man who lives his whole life without ever sinning, then he has no sin in which to be accountable to or punished for. But we know that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
Sin is the foundational basis for condemnation, while Christ is the foundational basis for salvation (Romans 6:23). There will not be a single soul sent to hell for not knowing about Jesus, rather souls are sent to hell for their sin. But there will also not be a single soul going to heaven who does not know Jesus.
And that is why you ought to accept him today. You are not in ignorance. You know about Christ and what He did to save you from death, hell, and sin. What you must do is turn from your sins and turn to Christ. Then, if the Lord wills, become a missionary to take the gospel to the ends of the earth.
Scriptures: Matt 7:14, John 14:6, Romans 2:15, Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23
Greg Gordon, founder of SermonIndex.net, arranged a series of meetings for OpenAirOutreach starting in Canada and then through the states. I have traveled more this past month then I have in my entire life.
This month alone God opened up doors so I was able to preach at:
4 States and 2 Provinces
3 Universities and 1 College
1 Radio Station (interview)
1 halfway home
1 homeless outreach
And many street corners
All this took place in: Canada, New York, Maryland, Ohio, Missouri, and Oklahoma.
HUNDREDS, maybe more, heard the gospel of repentance towards God and faith in Jesus Christ. The gospel is forcefully advancing! Praise God!
A fully detailed account of the travels for the month of January can be found in the Adventure Journal of the site. (Look for the one titled: “Canada, New York, Maryland, Ohio, Missouri, Oklahoma”)
