Texas A&M, College Station

Texas A&M is a wide open campus with tens of thousands of students. You can walk on to this campus and start preaching without any problems. That isn’t true for every campus in Texas.

Texas A&M also has a lot of professing Christians on campus. Some are genuine believers, of course, and some are not. But we do find support for our open-air ministry from at least some of the Christians on campus. That is great because they can continue the work after we are gone.

It was rainy while we were on campus but it didn’t rain consistently. It stopped for most of the time we were there. I started off by engaged the homosexuals and lesbians on campus. There is a group of them that remembers me from years past. It’s great to have a continual influence into their lives.

This is a great campus for Christian Apologetics because the crowd is engaging but not hostile. They gather around and listen, ask questions, heckle, etc. That is really the ideal for open-air preaching. We don’t like the hostility or violence that we sometimes are met with. We want good interaction with unbelievers.

A sin I preach against on every campus is sexual promiscuity. It is really damaging and destroying our country. I preached, “1 in 3 college students has an STD. You are more likely to graduate with an STD than a PHD!” I went on to expose the foolishness of sin and to explain the wisdom of God. My strategy is to open their eyes as to the stupidity of sin and to the goodness of God, to help turn them in repentance from sin to God. After all, it is the truth that can set them free!

We preached into the nighttime during one of our days on campus. Somehow the topic of cancer came up. A student mentioned it, so I said, “I happen to know the cure for cancer.” This made the students interested. I said, “Really, I do know the cure for cancer. And it’s FREE!

I explained, “I am not a medical doctor but I have studied this topic a lot. A 21-40 day water only fast has been medically shown to kill cancer. Your normal cells can survive a prolonged water fast but cancer cells simply cannot survive under such conditions. Fasting starves the cancer but not the body. The body doesn’t actually starve until around 45 days of fasting. If I were ever diagnosed with cancer, the first thing I would do is a 21-40 day fast. After that, I’d break the fast with healthy juices like carrot juice, and maintain a healthy diet with regular fasting.” I then went on to explain other health benefits of fasting like lowering cholesterol, preventing heart attack and heart disease, curing auto-immune disease, healing inflammation and fatigue, etc.

One student in particular was impressed with my knowledge of fasting and its health benefits. He listened to the preaching for a long time and then shook my hand afterwards. I guess that means he learned something he was grateful for.

My primary message on campus was about Sin & the Savior. Everything else is a side topic from the main issues. As America drifts further and further into sin and wickedness, we must preach louder and louder the warning about Judgment Day. I wish every campus in America had a voice calling out to them to repent! Praise that God raises up a voice on every campus across the country!

The Nightlife of College Station, TX

Since College Station is a College town with tens of thousands of college students, it also has a bar and club district to service the party scene. What is great is that we not only preach to the students during the day, but we get to preach to them at night as well! They just can’t get away from the message of the Gospel!


One of the brothers who joined me on this trip is named Sebastian. He came to two of our evangelism conferences in the past. He was the first brother to start open-air preaching and he got a nice group of people to stop and engage him. He is a very animated and lively preacher! That is essential for a street preacher who wants people to stop and listen!



As the night progressed we moved to another location that had more people, just a little bit down the way from where we started. This location is where a lot of the bars and clubs are. You can stand right in front of them on this busy street and preach the Gospel.

What’s great about preaching outside the bars and clubs is that you catch them in the very act of sin! It is easier to convict them of their sin that way. And you know exactly what sins to preach against!

While I was preaching there was one sinner who came up and started dancing like a fool. He was trying to entertain the crowd, get attention, and make light of what was going on. But another student that night recognized me from Youtube. He seemed very convicted of his sin. I ministered to him for a bit before he left with his friends. This showed the diverse response you get out there. One man dances like a fool while another man is heavily convicted. But even the man who was dancing like a fool saw us later and became very angry. That too showed that he was convicted.

Most sinners start out as careless but as we continue to minister to them, they start to enter into conviction. Anger is their usual response to conviction.


My friend Jonathon shared the soap box with me as well. He does ministry on the campus and has a big heart for outreach and evangelism. Pray for him please. He does regular outreach to this nightlife now and he has a good team that goes with him, including his pastor. It’s great when you have a supportive church and pastor. Every church should have an evangelism team that goes out faithfully!


Towards the end of the night we moved again to a quieter location to get away from some loud music. This was a high foot traffic area. It also had a wide open space for a crowd to gather. That made it an ideal location. Since it was quieter at this location, everyone could hear us loud and clear as we urged them to repent and believe the Gospel.




I remember so well how the Holy Spirit came to me in my prison cell, 18 years ago, and ripped the blinders off my eyes. For the first time, I saw myself as I really was – a rotten filthy hell-deserving sinner. I was dark, I was sinful, I was selfish, I was hateful, I was evil.

He ripped away from me all my excuses and showed me how I was responsible for my actions. I had no one to blame but myself, as I was making my own choices and all shifts of blame were falsehoods. I saw how wicked and evil I had grown to become and He convinced me that God would be completely justified in damning my soul forever.

And He didn’t relieve the weight of my guilt and conviction. He left me to roast in the oven of conviction for a few more months to prepare me for the gospel. I tossed and turned tormented inside that I was damned and I knew no hope or way of escape. He left me in conviction until I came to the point of genuine repentance – where I didn’t want to be a sinner anymore – and showed me through the Scriptures how I could be forgiven through Christ.

The problem with most evangelism today is that it doesn’t seek to convince the sinner of his exceeding sinfulness – that he is fully responsible for his sinful condition and that his eternal damnation would be justified and right. Modern evangelism just wants the sinner to briefly acknowledge that he has sinned and then immediately trust in Christ for salvation when there is no deep conviction or deep repentance. This is the reason for so many false converts in Christianity today.

In order to have a revival in America, we must see sinners crushed with the conviction of sin, to roast by the Holy Ghost in their guilt and deservingness of damnation. That is the proper preparation of the heart for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Then we will see sinners abandon their sinning and cling to Christ for salvation, to flee from the wrath that’s to come.





This is a picture a friend of mine took while he was vacationing at the beach. He was reading “The Atonement” by Albert Barnes, a classic Christian book that I reprinted in my bookstore.

Albert Barnes said, “His sufferings were in the place of the penalty, not the penalty itself. They were a substitution for the penalty, and were, therefore, strictly and properly vicarious, and were not the identical sufferings which the sinner would himself have endured.” He also said, “The atonement is something substituted in the place of the penalty of the law, which will answer the same ends as the punishment of the offender himself would. It is instead of punishment. It is something which will make it proper for the lawgiver to suspend or remit the literal execution of the penalty of the law, because the object or end of that penalty has been secured, or because something has been substituted for that which will answer the same purpose.”



Making a Difference for the Kingdom of God!

” I used Jesse’s advice recently and our street preaching event went very smoothly when the police were called.” David

“Hi Jesse, thank you for your very hard work that you are preaching the Gospel! It is so inspiring me and I want to do hard work for Christ too. Your life for Christ shows an example of how real Christians should live with passion for Christ to save souls! Bless you!” Igor

“been watching your videos for days… Because of you guys I quit smoking weed… I was a hypocrite and I was lukewarm but God showed me he was going to spit me out and now I’ve been on the straight and narrow..I didn’t believe that I could quit sinning until I read bible verse be ye holy for I am holy..best decision I’ve ever made in my life.. I spend most of my days reading the Bible and watching street preaching videos because that’s where I feel I need to be I greatly appreciate you guys and in this day and age in this generation with their stubbornness and hard hearts you have to come at them the way you do with the truth it’s the hard truth but that’s how they need to hear it because of they’re stubborn hearts” Tina


December is usually a hard and difficult month for us as our financially support usually slows down this time of year, so please remember us and our missionary work this time of year. Thanks!

Question: Why did God Create the Devil?


Follow us on social media:



I was blessed with an opportunity to travel to Kentucky and minister with another brother on campuses in that area. He’s a younger brother who has been watching the YouTube videos for a long time and attended our Street Preachers Conference. He wanted me to come and minister along side him so he got me a plane ticket and let me stay at his house. We had a great week of ministry.

Marshall University, West Virginia

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.48.13 AM

Marshall University was the first campus we went to. I had never preached on this campus before but had heard about this campus through a movie, about how their football team once died in a plane crash.

The foot traffic was pretty slow but I found a location I thought would be best. It was a a wall in the middle of a sidewalk. I began by warning the students about Judgment Day. A student grabbed his saxophone and began playing it next to me. This only helped my cause by creating more of a scene. Eventually a campus Police Officer came and told me to get off the wall. That was OK because I had another location in mind.

I moved over to the grassy right next to where I had been standing. There was a great staircase that I envisioned students sitting down on. It looked like it could work as an amphitheater type set up. As you can see from the pictures above, my plan worked. The location was barren and empty when I started preaching but by hammering on the right topics, I was able to attract an interesting crowd after preaching maybe twenty minutes.

The crowd stayed for a couple hours as we preached. It literally started to RAIN and HAIL as we were preaching but still the crowd didn’t move! There were times that I was freezing even with my winter coat on and there were students out there with shorts and t-shirts and they still didn’t leave! They were captivated by the message!

There was one assistant professor on campus who dressed in all black. Her style was gothic. She had satanic symbols that she wore also. I had heard about her before we went to campus. She heckled my friend in the past. He warned me she might be there. But when I met her, she was very friendly. In fact, she said she already knew me very well from Youtube. She even asked for my autograph! I thought to myself, “Wow! Here is a satanic gothic assistant professor, who I have never met before, on a campus I have never preached before, and I have already had an impact in her life because she has listened to my Youtube videos!” What an amazing era we live in!

The University of Kentucky in Lexington is a special campus for me, though I have only preached there once before, because when I was first studying the art and science of open-air preaching I watched an old VHS tape of a campus preacher on this campus. I learned a lot from that video. I never thought that I would travel to Kentucky and preach on that campus myself but praise God that he has taken me all over the country with the Gospel.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.59.02 AM

The student union building was been under construction. It was behind the student union building that we normally preached. That location wasn’t ideal but it still worked. Since the construction was going on, we had to find a new location to preach. This open area that we preached in was perfect – much better than the other location I had preached in the past.

We had great interaction with the students for many hours. One student who walked by was the daughter of a local pastor. That pastor called me up on the phone and asked if I was around. We had already left campus by that time but he said that he would like to join me that next time I return to campus. He has teamed up with other traveling campus preachers in the past and does a great job of campus ministry himself there every week.

Morehead State University, Kentucky 

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.49.04 AMScreen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.49.54 AM

Morehead State is another special campus for me because again, when I was first studying the art and science of open-air preaching 16 years ago, I watched a VHS tape of a brother preaching on this campus.

The usual “free speech zone” of this campus isn’t the best. It is a little off the beaten path. So the team I was with usually preached at a very busy sidewalk. That location was a little too small for the crowd I was expecting, but right next to it was a great area that looked to me like an amphitheater. It had walls for the students to sit on and a nice shady tree for me to preach under. It was a warm day so I was thankful for the tree. When you are in the sun for 5 hours, it can really zap the energy out of you. I was grateful for the shade.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.50.21 AM

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.50.51 AM

We covered a lot of topics during the many hours we were on campus. One of the students asked me, “If God is good, why did He create the devil?” I said, “God didn’t create the devil. An angel named Lucifer did. God created an angel named Lucifer who then made the choice to be a devil.”

This is an important issue for everyone to understand. God is not the author of evil. Sin is a personal choice that a free moral agent makes. God created us with a free will, capable of choosing between good and evil. Each individual is responsible for their own choice. We choose to be good or evil. That is why there is a Judgment Day, in which the universe will be held justly responsible. What God created was good. Any evil found in the universe is our own creation.

University of Louisville, Kentucky 

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.59.46 AM

University of Louisville is a campus I have preached on maybe three times already. I don’t care for their “free speech area” which is off the path a little bit and is already roped off. But it gets the job done. There is a busy sidewalk right in front of you and students gather on it to listen. And the ropes do help to keep the crowd back.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 2.00.30 AM

Something I always stress on campus is that “God has given you a free will. You are who you choose to be. You are responsible for who you are.” We were made in the image of God. God is a creator. We also create – we make choices. We shape the world around us. We form our own moral character.

One of the great needs of this generation is to take personal responsibility for their actions. It is easier to blame other people for your own bad choices but this doesn’t actually help anybody.

It was 18 years ago when I was in a prison cell that I was convicted by the Holy Spirit and He opened my eyes to show me just how evil of a sinner I had made myself. He explained to me, “You are who you choose to be” and “life is what you make it.” It was at that moment, at the age of 15 years old, that I stopped blaming everyone else for my own bad choices (Everyone has hurts and pains in life. Everyone is a victim of someone else some how. But that doesn’t justify your own criminality). And I took personal responsibility for my sins and my life.

True conversion starts with real confession and deep repentance – both of which involve taking personal responsibility for your sinful choices.

Northern Kentucky University

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.51.45 AMScreen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.52.09 AM

This campus has a very large amphitheater that we’ve never had any problems filling up with students. But by the time we got started it was later in the day. And I believe it was a Friday afternoon, which is usually very dead on a campus. The first location that we tried, which was the amphitheater, didn’t work out. So we moved right in front of the student union where there were some students hanging out.

One of the arguments that a student made was that “truth is relative!” I said, “An insane asylum presupposes objective reality – that truth is absolute. If truth is relative, insanity doesn’t exist!”

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.52.50 AMScreen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.53.18 AM

This is my friend Chad. He’s been preaching for a good amount of time now and I believe was first inspired to this type of ministry through YouTube videos. He did a good job taking their questions and giving them biblical answers. He joins me on a lot of campuses when I am in the area. It is always a great pleasure to link up with like-minded brethren across the country.

Thunder over Louisville, Kentucky 

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.54.05 AM

Thunder over Louisville is a big event in the city of Louisville. Its a big celebration with lots of venders, families, and revelers. In the picture above, you can see my host Zachary being confronted by an angry sinner. The sinner eventually moved on and we kept preaching. Resist the devil, the Bible says, and he will flee from you!


At one location where we were preaching, a group of women started chanting “My Body, my Choice!” That is because we had mentioned abortion in our preaching as one of the sins of America. My answer to that cliche is always, “It’s not your body! It’s the babies body! It’s not your body you want to mutilate and kill. It’s the babies body you want to mutilate and kill! And you have no right over the babies body to kill them!”

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.56.14 AM

We walked around and open-air preached all over this event. We would normally set up shop and preach for about 10 or 20 minutes before moving on to the next location. There were lots of ground to cover with thousands of people out there. We preached all over this event!

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.56.41 AMScreen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.56.53 AM

There was one altercation while we were preaching. An angry sinner tried to grab the bullhorn from one of the team members. He first chased him around to try to get it and when the brother slipped in the mud, the sinner grabbed ahold of the bullhorn poll.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.57.07 AMScreen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.57.26 AM

However, the Police were not far off and quickly showed up on the scene. They handled the situation and we were able to keep preaching for the rest of the day without incident.

We literally preached to tens of thousands of people this day! Praise God! Pray for all the seeds that were planted!



The Apostle Paul has to be the most slandered person in Church history. People often take his writings out of context, twist them, and paint Paul out to be a hypocritical sinner. In this documentary, I show how Paul was truly a holy man of God and exegetically explain all the verses that religious sinners twist to make Paul out to be a hypocrite.



Making a Difference for the Kingdom of God!


An older man contacted me recently to tell me that he has been in church his whole life, always thought he was saved, and was always told by pastors that your saved if you simply believe that Jesus died for your sins.

But he found and started watching our YouTube Street Preaching videos and

It. Changed. His. Life.

Because we preached one thing he never heard in church, “You must repent of your sins to be saved.”

Can you imagine! He went to church his whole life but never heard it preached that you have to repent to be saved! This shows you how corrupt and compromised most churches in America truly are!




These pictures are of an evangelism team in Switzerland! They sent me these pictures and told me how my ministry inspired them to go out and preach against the porn convention that was happening there in their country! The leader of the team, Carmen, said that she was inspired by my YouTube videos where we preached against the Porn Convention in Dallas, TX. Praise God, he is raising up laborers all over the world!


Hello there Am Georgia for Kenya,Africa and watched several videos whereby your preach across your country against sin. Thank u for your good work and word of God is the good we should all digest.



Hey Everyone!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We had such a fruitful year in 2018 and look forward to another great year in 2019! So many people heard the Word and came to repentance!

Please remember our family this month of December. It seems that our missionary support usually slows down this month as everyone is busy with their holiday shopping. We couldn’t do this ministry without help from the body of Christ!

Response to the Critics: Does Street Preaching Really Work? Where is the Fruit? Where are the Salvations?


Follow us on social media:



My Studio

I just filmed in my studio testimony after testimony for over an hour of people coming to the Lord through our street preaching – in response to the critics who say “Street Preaching isn’t going to win anybody to the Lord!”

I can’t count how many times critics have told me, “Street preaching doesn’t work. There is no fruit.”

This statement is always so ridiculous to me because I see the fruit over and over again since I am actually in the field. Statements like that come from those who aren’t doing it.

In this video I shared email after email of people who said they came to the Lord through our street ministry – atheists, homosexuals, muslims, drug dealers, satanists, etc. And they are from all over the world! Brazil, Sweden, Switzerland, England, Canada, USA, Philippines, China, France, etc.

The fact is, preaching the Gospel is very powerful, the Word never returns void, and the the harvest is plentiful, we just need more laborers!

These emails I share in the video are just the emails I’ve collected over the past few months. I’ve been getting emails like these monthly for 16 years now!

I asked in the video:

“Leave a comment on this video if you came to the Lord through our preaching or were inspired as a Christian to start witnessing and street preaching.”

Already we have received 140 new comments of people testifying of the impact our ministry has had in leading them to the Lord and getting them out unto the streets for witnessing!

I was not expecting such a huge response in such a short time!

A News Helicopter Covered the National Street Preachers Conference!


Follow us on social media:





My ministry Open Air Outreach hosted The First National Street Preachers Conference in Dallas Fort Worth Texas this year.

We had street preachers come from all over the country to participate in this three day conference. During the morning we would have sessions for inspiration and equipping. In the afternoon we would have an outreach. In the evening we would have more sessions. And then at nighttime we would have more outreach.



We had many speakers and many sessions over the three day conference but one of the main themes that was pressed is the need for both Evangelism and Discipleship. The Street Preacher Movement is about saving and changing America and that won’t happen through evangelism alone. The Great Commission is about preaching the Gospel and making disciples. Can you imagine if every mature believer in the country had at least one disciple a year? That would make a huge impact!


I made sure to record all of the lectures that were given at the conference and I will upload them all to my Youtube channel as my time permits.

The University of North Texas


This is a before and after picture of the same location! We went from having zero listeners to having over 1,000 in a very short amount of time! Praise the Lord! This shows how powerful street preaching really can be in reaching the masses. We can literally preach a Gospel sermon to 1,000 people, unannounced and unadvertised. Open Air preaching is the most effective way to reach the most amount of people, at the least amount of time and at the least expense.


Years ago the University of North Texas would allow preachers on the campus in “free speech areas.” But they changed their policy to crack down on “unwanted outsiders” by requiring outside groups obtain “sponsorship” from student groups in order to be on campus. That was a blessing in disguise for this campus because their old policy required advance notice of three days, which had to be made in person, and you were limited to their free speech area for only three hours. When their new policy came into play, I started preaching on the city sidewalk which the administration had no control over. Now I can show up and preach whenever I want, for as long as I want. And the sidewalk is right in front of a busy staircase that gets lots of foot traffic.


Our open air meeting grew to be so big and caused such a stir on campus that the local news helicopter started hovering over us to film what was going on! Remember, we had a crowd of over 1,000 people. We actually spent two days on this campus, with huge crowds each day, and the news helicopter was there each day to film what was happening! Imagine that, a news helicopter just because of a handful of street preachers!


This campus was full of all sorts of liberal groups who were outraged that we were preaching to the campus. These liberal groups came out to protest us with their signs and chants. There were a lot of rainbow flags out there to represent homosexuality. We had to break out the bullhorn when they started chanting to drown out the preaching.



One man brought out his musical instrument to blast while we were preaching. The noise of the crowd became so loud that we couldn’t really have just one open-air preacher at a time anymore. The whole scene broke down into a lot of one-on-one witnessing groups. Every street preacher there was surrounded by a group of students asking questions. In the picture above you can see one brother, Zachary, engaging a nice group with one man hanging on the pole to get above the crowd and listen. This picture remembers me of the biblical story of Zacchaeus in the tree.



The students had their signs and we had ours. My favorite was a Matthew 1:21 sign that a pastor brought out with the team. It emphasized salvation from sin through Jesus. And it was just a simple Bible Scripture. It was also cool to see him wearing one of our scripture street preaching t-shirts! It had 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 on the front and then 1 Corinthians 6:11 on the back.


Throughout the day there were times that it got very heated and other times that it cooled down. Usually these things calm down the more time goes on. Sometimes you have to just let these liberal college students scream and shout and chant for an hour to wear themselves out. Then once they are all tired out, you can preach the Gospel to them.



One advantage that we had was that our banners and signs were on tall poles, so even though we were surrounded by hundreds of college students everyone could still see our signs with their biblical message loud and clear. These signs said things like, “God Hates Sin,” “Jesus Saves from Hell,” and “Jesus Said Go and Sin No More.”



As the outreach broke up into small groups and one-on-one witnessing, we were able to have a more personal and intimate impact on these students. We were able to open up our Bibles and share the Scriptures with them directly out of the Word.


I find it interesting that critics will sometimes tell us that our Bible Banners and Gospel Signs are not an effective way of communication. But whenever liberals want to protest something, the first thing they do is to make their own signs to display in public! Businesses spend billions of dollars a year on signs and advertising. “Signs don’t work” is a lie the devil tells Christians because he knows how effective they really are in reaching the masses. If anything belongs on a sign, its the message of the gospel!



As you can see, when we left the crowd at the end of each day it was still HUGE! We had people gathered on both sides of the street, on the sidewalk, on the grass, on the hills, etc. It really was a massive outreach! We plowed a very hard field and planted a lot of seeds. Pray that these seeds will continued to be watered and come to full growth!


One of my favorite times of an outreach is the fellowship and food afterwards!

Great food with great people after doing great things is a great time!

The Grassy Knoll in Dallas

(Where President JFK Was Assassinated)


This spot is known as “The Grassy Knoll.” This is the location in Dallas where President JFK was killed. Every weekend tourists from all over the world come to this location. Tourist locations are one of the best places for street preaching because you can reach the world without going very far and you get new people every day!

The assassination of JFK is not a hard topic to springboard off of either. “One day, we are all going to die. It is appointed unto man once to die and after this comes the judgment. The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is everlasting life through Jesus Christ the Lord.”


I had some simple “Trust Jesus” signs with me to give to brethren who wanted them. One man joined us for this outreach because he worked nearby. He was actually a local tattoo artist but he had been watching YouTube videos of street preachers and wanted to come out to support the conference! You never know who is watching the YouTube videos and the laborers that are being raised up!


Again, great food and great fellowship afterwards! You really should consider coming to next years conference! It’s a great time! Mark your calendars for March!

Sundance Square



Sundance Square in Fort Worth is one of my favorite places in the whole country for street preaching because in the evening time there are lots of people hanging out and if you start to street preach they will gather around to listen and engage you. It can be exceptionally difficult to gather a crowd on the street, unlike on a university where it can be easy, but at this location I’ve been shocked at how easy its been. They circle around us and listen for a long time! We’ve held a crowd over an hour at this spot!

We first went out Friday night but the foot traffic was pretty dead. We didn’t get much going on that first try. But on Saturday night it was very busy and it didn’t take us long to get a great open air meeting going!


Another great thing about this location was that it isn’t a bar and club district. There are bars and clubs but there are also restaurants and other attractions that bring out a more family friendly crowd. This is great because the people are we witnessing to and preaching to aren’t intoxicated. We preach late into the night and there are sober people all night long to preach to.



The local news covered our Street Preacher Conference and was fair enough. It wasn’t heavily slanted or biased against us the way student papers usually are. The best part about the news coverage was that they actually aired our Bible Signs for all the world to see!

One pastor who came said he had such a great time that next year he plans on bringing 100 young men to participate! That next conference will be in March in Dallas Fort Worth TX again. Email me and let me know if you want to come!



Making a Difference for the Kingdom of God!

“The conference was very fruitful in that several students/truth seekers connected with me via fb afterwards. Righteous seeds were sewn and I believe with all my heart the Lords word will not return void. His works are being perfected in the Saints and I look forward to learning how to be a better light, a better witness, and more faithful in the area of OA Evangelism, the least supported and most needed area of ministry. Thank you for hosting this event in honor of our risen Saviour! I look forward to serving next year.”

~ Kristi (Wylie, Tx.)

“The conference had brought men and women across the country to hear from both recent to seasoned open air preachers. We were edified in hearing from God’s heart what we as street preachers needed to hear as well as things we didn’t think to hear. But we were not left hearers only, no, we were able to put into practice what we did hear and preach and see the work of God move on college students and strangers alike. Praise God I’m looking forward to next year to see the working of God move again.”

~ Sebastian (Tyler, Tx)

“All I can say is that this conference was excellent! Bible centered teaching, preaching, and exhortation. Daytime/nighttime outreaches were well planned and timed. Fellowship with like minded brethren was greatly edifying. Looking forward to next year!”

~ Zachary (Ashland Ky)

“Wonderful conference, we only stayed for 1 full day, but just that day was worth the drive, the hotel, etc!!! Jesse, thank you for allowing me and my friends to not only join you in preaching, but allowing us to be an influence/speak at such a wonderful conference. Grateful for everyone we got to meet and talk to, looking forward to next year!”

~ Jonathan (College Station, Tx)

“The conference was a great opportunity to meet up with other like-minded brothers and sisters in Christ and to learn how to deal with police, hecklers, lukewarm Christians and more. Kyle gave a great talk on the importance of building disciples to carry on the message and to grow the kingdom. The time of fellowship was just the charge my batteries needed to help me be even bolder when I return home to preach. Thank you to all who put the event together, and to all the great people I got to meet.”

~ Buddy (North Carolina)

” I am new in the street preaching community and this conference to me was great. To be around people who have been open air preaching for many years and being able to learn from them and get to know their heart was both a blessing and edifying. So I would say even if your just getting started this conference was a great way to learn from others without having to go through what they did. From handling police to the lukewarm and learning that evangelism and discipleship should go hand in hand gave a solid foundation to start making Christ known in the open air. And also getting firsthand experience with outreaches and solid biblical teachings. True blessing looking forward to next year.”

~ Caleb (North Carolina)

“It was great to meet new open air preachers who are truly saved and love the Lord Jesus Christ and want to serve Him in the beauty of holiness. It was refreshing to be with brethren of like precious faith. Where no pretense was needed.”

~ Jim (Oklahoma)

“Being with men and women who are the on the front lines of the evangelistic front is alway encouraging. I came to the National Street Preaching Conference To learn from there experience and wisdom and heart for the lost. Received a fresh powerful burden of the Lord over the sins of the world seeing the hate in the huge crowd towards Jesus and his word. Praying that men and women will answer the call of Jesus Christ to Preach the Gospel in America and beyond. Come join the National Street Preaching Movement and take our cities back for God.”

~ Kyle (San Antonio, Tx)

“The National Street Preachers Conference was a great opportunity to be poured into and then have a chance to pour out again. Many conferences you attend are set up for you to sit back and learn but this one is set up to put into practice what it is you have just learned right away. This is a meeting filled with doers and not just hearers. It blessed me to see these Saints join together to reach the lost and to equip and counsel each other in wisdom and love. The guest speakers were excellent and the gospel preachers inspiring. Looking forward to next year when I can bring a group I am raising up from my church so they can experience the blessing I did. To God be the glory!”

~ Roger (Nacogdoches, Tx)

“It was an honor to be part of the first national street preachers conference. The Lord used the men in this conference to reawaken in me a burden for proclamation. As a young preacher the wisdom I can glean from these men is priceless. I’m taking back the things I learned into the church to raise up more preachers and to bring more people to the conference next year! Everyone with a desire for more of God should be at this conference.”

~ José (San Antonio, Tx)

Mark you calendars for

March 2019

for the next street preachers conference!

More information is forthcoming.


It will be held in Dallas Fort Worth, Texas.

Evangelism Seminar, Philadelphia PA

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 12.10.45 AM

I was blessed with an opportunity to put on an Evangelism Seminar for a church in Philadelphia. This was the second time the church had me come and speak. I preached multiple sermons on Saturday and on Sunday, but one of my main messages was:

What’s Wrong with the Modern Gospel?

I will upload that sermon to my YouTube when I get a chance. I listed out numerous problems found in the modern gospel that is preached, but one of the primary problems is a message that is void of repentance! Some false teachers even go as far as to explicitly preach, “You don’t have to repent of your sins to be saved!”

There are certain preachers, known as Antinomians, who preach that “repentance” is “works” and therefore “You don’t have to repent of your sins to be saved.” And “Repent of your sins is heresy.”

This is gross error! The Bible makes a distinction between repentance and works:

Act 26:20 – But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should REPENT and turn to God, and do WORKS meet for repentance.

Works follow repentance but repentance is not a work. Repentance is a change of mind – in relation to sin repentance is a change of mind about sinning.

A change of mind about your actions always results in a change of works, which is why the Bible says:

Jon 3:10 – And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.

Antinomians misunderstands Jonah 3:10 and falsely categories repentance as works and then concludes you don’t have to repent of your sins to be saved.


They say all you have to do is repent of unbelief to be saved, not any other sins in your life. But unbelief is a sin. So even Antinomians say you must repent of sin to be saved! The sin of unbelief!

The Bible does say you must repent of your sins as a precondition to forgiveness:

Acts 8:22 – Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee

Acts 2:38 – Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

And as we already saw, Paul who was the Apostle to the Gentiles was told to preach to the Gentiles repent, turn to God, and do works meet for repentance (Acts 26:20).

Galatians 1:8 – But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach anyother gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.


University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia PA 


This was only my second time ever preaching to this campus. It is not the easiest campus to draw a crowd at and in the past the administration has worked very hard to try to shut us down. In the past they even sent out their landscaping team with their blowers and mowers to follow us wherever we went! Universities today want to brainwash their students with liberalism, isolating them from any conservative voice or conservative values.


One of the points I pressed on this campus was that, “Hell is a public expression of God’s hatred for sin.” If you want to know God’s estimation of how evil sin really is, look at the severity to which he punishes it. Those who do not believe that sin deserves eternal hell simply have a disagreement with the mind of God over the demerit of sin. But when you really see sin for what it is, you see that you deserve hell for it. And in light of that, we see our need of Salvation through the mercy of God in Jesus Christ.


One atheist walked by and heckled, “God isn’t real! God is a fairytale!” I told him, “The signature of God is in every cell of your body – The genetic code in your DNA! The only known cause for intelligent information is an intelligent mind!” Rather than to try to engage me in intelligent debate, the atheist kept walking.



The evidence for God is seen all throughout creation. The problem of the atheist isn’t with his head but with his heart. And that is why the majority of my preaching deals with matters of the heart – attacking the root which is their sin.

Princeton University, New Jersey

Screen Shot 2018-09-13 at 2.27.34 AM

Princeton is a very liberal Ivy League School that was in much need for a good rebuke. I’ve preached Yale University before many times but never had the honor of rebuking Princeton.

Yale University has a reputation for “Naked Parties,” which gives me an easy target to start my preaching against and capture their interest. But I wasn’t sure what kind of reputation Princeton had. So I started with my general rebuke I give to most universities in America today – I began rebuking drunkenness, fornication, and homosexuality. It wasn’t long before I got a heckler.

She was a liberal Jewish girl who didn’t think I was going about it the wrong way. But during our interaction she confessed to being pro-homosexual and pro-abortion. She also argued that there was nothing wrong with pornography. So it was no wonder she didn’t like me calling out sin and calling sinners to repentance!


This campus must not be accustomed to street preachers because somebody called the Police. The Police Officer said that we were offending people, as if that wasn’t part of free speech. I explained that what he was telling me was offending me. That made his point mute. Most officers don’t know what to say next after I bring that up. Being offended is totally subjective, so when a Police Officer tells me that I cannot offend people, I tell him that he just offended me. Since we were on the city property and were were only exercising our free speech, there was nothing he could do so he eventually left. He was only responding in the first place because somebody called the Police to complain.



Our day continued on for a few more hours. A good size crowd gathered around us. The students broke out a homosexual rainbow flag to protest and they had other unmentionable objects which only manifested their perversion. I was able to share my testimony of how the Lord saved me out of a life of drugs, alcohol, and crime, and I shared with them how they too could be “born again” and become “new creatures in Christ.”

Montclair State University, New Jersey 


I had never before preached on this campus before but it had the perfect location right behind their student union. It was a large open square with a big staircase. It was perfect for open-air preaching.

That universities have a “rape culture” is something you often hear in the news today. The pastor I was with started off the campus preaching and gathered a nice crowd, so when he handed the crowd over to me I preached on “Tips to Help Avoid Being Raped While at College.”

This was a controversial topic which helped secure the students attention during the transition from the pastor to me. But it also gave me an opportunity to give the students some practical tips to take as a precautionary measure. For example, don’t go out partying with sinners, get drunk, and pass out. 

Drunkenness is especially a problem for university and college students today and most people don’t realize how risky and dangerous getting drunk is. You make yourself extremely vulnerable when you get intoxicated, to a whole list of risky and dangerous things.



Eventually the campus Police moved us to a new location because the location we were at had been reserved for an event. There was another area with a stage that we agreed to go to but the big crowd we had gathered did not follow us there. It was later in the afternoon and we had to start from scratch gathering a crowd but we were eventually successful in doing so.

It started to snow during our time there in New Jersey. It got really cold really fast, but the preaching was so hot that nobody left! Praise God! Their blood was boiling in anger as we were pointing out their sins that nobody cared that it was snowing! We continued to preach the Gospel for a couple more hours.

3 Free Christian Theology Books by Jesse Morrell | FREE CHRISTIAN EBOOKS




“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



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



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

Do You Have to Repent of Your Sins to Be Saved? Is Repentance Necessary for Salvation? Heresy of Matt Slick


Jesse Morrel and Matt Slick Debating in Montana



“I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”

~ Jesus Christ (Luke 13:3)

Founder of Christianity 


“I say that a person does not need to forsake his sin in order to be saved”

~ Matt Slick

Founder of Christian Apologetics Research Ministries (CARM) 


In one of the debates I had with Matt Slick of CARM (Christian Apologetics Research Ministry), we had this exchange:

Jesse Morrell, “I do believe you have to forsake your sins to be saved.”
Matt Slick, “Nope!”
Jesse Morrell, “But unbelief is a sin.”
Matt Slick, “Nope! Nope!”
Jesse Morrell, “Is unbelief a sin?”
Matt Slick, “Unbelief is a sin.”
Jesse Morrell, “Yeah, unbelief is a sin. Do you need to repent of unbelief to be saved?”
Matt Slick, “No.”

Matt Slick has since tried to “explain” his position on this matter, claiming that I am “misrepresenting him” when I quote that exchange. But all he has done is made matters worse by further confirming his heretical denial of repentance for salvation.

He said:

“Repentance is necessary to be a Christian, but not to become a Christian because repentance is the result of being a Christian, not the cause of being a Christian.” Matt Slick (Source)

Again Matt Slick said:

“I say that a person does not need to forsake his sin in order to be saved… I teach we must forsake our sin as Christians. But forsaking our sins is not what makes us Christians.  It is the result of being a Christian” Matt Slick (Source)

“We forsake our sins because we are Christian… We do not forsake our sins to become a Christian… Therefore, as Christians we ought to forsake our sin.” Matt Slick (Source)

Matt Slick is saying that you get saved in your sins and in your impenitence, and then AFTER you get saved in your sins and in your impenitence, you start to repent.

To restrain and confine repentance to “the saved” is serious error, as the Bible says:

Act 17:30-31 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

Here we see Paul saying that God is calling the whole world of unbelievers to repentance. Paul was not preaching to believers in this sermon. He was preaching a message of repentance to a Gentile audience at Mars Hill.

Again we see that repentance is to be preached to ALL nations:

Luk 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

Jesus Christ rebuked unbelievers for not repenting of their sins, even proclaiming damnation over them for their impenitence:

Mat 11:20-21, 23 “Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because they repented not: Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes… And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.”

Matt Slick says that repentance isn’t for the unsaved but for the saved.

Jesus Christ said the exact opposite of what Matt is saying:

Luk 5:32 – I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Repentance isn’t for the righteous (the saved), but for the unrighteous (the unsaved).

The saved have repented of their sins but the unsaved haven’t.

The Bible says that the saved are righteous, whereas the sinners are unsaved:
1Pe 4:18 – And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
Again, the unrighteous are unsaved:

1Co 6:9-10 “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”

Since the saved are righteous, the Bible says they need no repentance. Whereas the unsaved are sinners and therefore need repentance:––

Luk 15:7 – I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

The saved person needs no repentance because they are already righteous (justified). But the sinner, who isn’t saved, is the one who needs to repent. And all heaven rejoices when the unsaved sinner repents. Why? Because they are getting saved!

Matt Slick says the unsaved don’t need to repent – the saved need to repent. The Bible says the exact opposite: The righteous don’t need to repent, the sinners do.

The Bible says repentance from sin comes BEFORE salvation:

“Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” Acts 2:38

“For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.” 2Corinthians 7:10

“Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.” Acts 8:22

“And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.” Luke 24:47

“I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”Luke 13:3

“Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are you ways my ways, saith the Lord” Isaiah 55:7-8

“He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy” Proverbs 28:13

“Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions, so iniquity shall not be your ruin. Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die” Ezekiel 18:30-31

The biblical principle is this: Sin is only forgiven AFTER it is forsaken.

Act 3:19 – “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord”

Here we see that before your sins are blotted out, you must repent and be converted. The Greek word for “be converted” is “ἐπιστρέφω” and it is translated as “turn (16x), be converted (6x), return (6x), turn about (4x), turn again (3x).”

Conversion, which happens prior to the forgiveness of sins, includes turning from sin (Acts 3:19) and turning to God (Acts 26:20).

The Bible promises mercy to those who forsake their sins, not to those who are impenitent over their sins. To the contrary, the Bible promises wrath for the impenitent, not mercy.

Mat 12:41 – The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here

Rom 2:5 – But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God”

Nowhere in the Word of God does God ever promise salvation to the impenitent.

The Bible says that repentance from dead works (sin) is a foundation that goes along side faith towards God.
Heb 6:1 – “the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God”
The Apostle Paul preached both repentance and faith to the Gentiles:

 Act 20:21 – Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.

Jesus taught that harlots and publicans were saved because they repented at the preaching of John the Baptist:

Mat 21:28-32 – “But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard. He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went. And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not. Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you. For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.

Evangelism is calling sinners to repentance, urging them to meet the conditions of salvation. This is why we read in the Bible:

Mar 6:12 – And they went out, and preached that men should repent.

The message of the gospel starts with “repent.” Jesus started his ministry with “repent!”

Mat 4:17 – From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Jesus said one of his primary purposes in coming to the world was to call sinners to repent:

Luke 5:32- I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

To call sinners to repent of what? Given the context, that is he calling sinners and not the righteous, he is calling sinners to repent of being sinners! Calling sinners to repent unto righteousness!

Matt Slick only confirmed his heresy with his “clarification” post.

The root of Matt’s heresy is a false definition of repentance.

Matt said:

“repentance is defined as following the Law” Matt Slick (Source)

He said:

“Romans 3:28, says that we are justified apart from the works of the Law.” Matt Slick (Source)

And since he defines repentance as a work of the law, he concludes we are justified apart from repenting of our sins.

He said:

“Repentance (forsaking sin) is not what makes us a Christian.” Matt Slick (Source)

Since Matt Slick defines repentance as a work of the law, and works are not the cause of salvation but follow as fruit of salvation, he says you don’t have to repent to get saved but you repent if you are already saved.

The Bible, however, does not classify repentance as a work of the law. The Greek word (μετανοέω) literally means to “change your mind.” A sinner is “carnally minded” which is “enmity with God” (Romans 8:7), and therefore to be reconciled to God the sinner must “change his mind” (repent of his carnal mind). To be carnally minded, in the Greek, means to be fleshly purposed – living for selfish gratification. To repent of the carnal mind is therefore a change of purpose or intention – from living for self to living for God.

Repentance is not a work, or a deed, or a work of the law. Repentance is a change of mind. When applied to sin, repentance is a change of mind about sinning. Repentance is not “keeping the law.” Repenting of your sins is simply a change of mind about breaking the law. You realize how stupid and wrong it is to sin and so you change your mind about doing it. A lifestyle of keeping God’s commandments comes after salvation as the fruit of repentance.

The Bible makes a distinction between repentance and works:

Act 26:20 – But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should REPENT and turn to God, and do WORKS meet for repentance.

Notice that the message God told Paul to preach to the Gentiles was “repent.” This is where the message starts. Unlike what Matt Slick is saying, repentance is for the unsaved to get saved.

Also notice the difference between “repent” and “do works meet for repentance.” Works follow repentance, known as the “works meet for repentance” (Acts 26:20) or the “fruit meet for repentance” (Matt. 3:8), but repentance itself isn’t isn’t a work.

Works follow repentance. But repentance itself isn’t a work. 

Matt Slick himself defined “heresy” as:

“a false teaching. It is a belief or idea that is in contradiction to orthodoxy. In the context of Christianity, heresy is that which deviates from standard biblical teaching.” Source

Given his own definition, we see that Matt Slick is teaching heresy. The Bible does not classify repentance as a work of the law, like Matt Slick does. To classify repentance as a “work of the law” is gross error and serious heresy. The logical  yet false conclusion of such a false and unbiblical classification is that “a person does not need to forsake his sin in order to be saved,” which the Bible says you must do in order to be saved!

Matt Slick’s heresy is two fold:

1. He says repentance is a work of the law.
2. He says you don’t have to repent to get saved.

Matt Slick calls himself a Calvinist but he seems to be alone in the Calvinist camp with his strange and unorthodox view that repentance is works of the law and that repentance is unnecessary for salvation.

A Lutheran Reformer named Melanchthon (1497-1560) said this:

“There are many who speak only of the forgiveness of sin, but who say little or nothing about repentance. If there is nevertheless no forgiveness of sins without repentance, so also forgiveness of sins cannot be understood without repentance. Therefore, if forgiveness of sins is preached without repentance, it follows that the people imagine they have already received the forgiveness of sins, and thereby they become cocksure and fearless, which is then greater error and sin than all the error that preceded our time.”

As we already saw, Paul who was the Apostle to the Gentiles (Rom. 11:13), was told to preach to the Gentiles repent, turn to God, and do works meet for repentance (Acts 26:20), and that He actually did testify to the Gentiles that they must repent towards God and have faith in Jesus Christ (Act 20:21).

Paul’s Gospel to the Gentiles included repentance from sin, so those who deny repentance from sin are preaching another gospel.

Galatians 1:8 – But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach another gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

Beware of Matt Slick and his CARM Ministry, as he is preaching “another gospel” that was not the Gospel delivered unto the Apostle Paul.

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils” 1 Timothy 4:1

Preaching to a Home Fellowship in Kentucky

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 12.49.45 AM


During our ministry travelings this year I was able to speak to a small home fellowship in Kentucky. The question of, “Your Blessed Life Now! How to Live the Happy Holy Christian Life” was on my heart and mind. There are many passages in the Bible that speak on being blessed so in my teaching I went through many of these passages.

My key texts was, “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.” Psa 1:1-2.

The key principle is that sin tends to misery and holiness tends to happiness. God’s commandments are good for our life whereas sin brings destruction and death. The way to live a happy life is to live a holy life.

“To bless” means “to make happy,” so when the Bible says, “Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities” (Act 3:26), this is saying that God blesses us or makes us happy by making us holy – turning us from our sins. Holiness is the key to blessedness. 

I also explained how regeneration is a re-genesis: bringing man back to the original state and condition that God had intended for us – a state of happiness through holiness. Sin and misery were not part of God’s intention and design for mankind. Sin and misery are foreign invaders which came into the world through the deception of the devil and Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil.


Your Blessed Life Now! How to Live the Happy Holy Christian Life


Beer Festival, Nashville TN

I admit that a beer fest is probably my least favorite place to preach the Gospel. I would personally much rather be on a university or college campus, when people are sober, to engage them in more intellectual discussion. But the Lord first preached to me in a jail cell and I’ve seen numerous people repent and get right with God while preaching on the street outside of bars and clubs. This beer fest needed some street preachers and so we stood up to fill that need!

We  had a nice megaphone and picked a location that was far enough away from all the different venders to try, to the best of our ability, not to bother them. After preaching for a little while on the bullhorn I was able to draw in a nice engaging crowd that circled around. One man blasted his musical horn for a while to try and drown us out but to no avail. I warned the sinners of God’s wrath and judgment and urged them to consider their ways and repent. Many stayed and listened for a long time as we preached.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 12.38.05 AM

Towards the end of the day we started marching around with our signs and bullhorn throughout the event. We wanted to cover more territory before we left. A police officer approached us and gave us a hard time at one point, saying that we were offending people by what we were saying. I told him that I was offended at what many of them were saying. Many of the people there were cussing and using profanity openly in the streets. Of course, the Officer had no problem with their public profanity, only our public preaching. In the end, he was unable to stop us from preaching and we continued to call sinners to repentance.

Bowling Green State University Campus 

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 12.39.17 AM

Bowling Green State University is a campus I had only preached on a couple times before. It always reminds me of the campus preacher who greatly inspired me named John. He used to preach this campus back in the 90’s.

This particular day I felt very fatigued with low energy and a sore throat. I don’t know if it was all the traveling and preaching wearing on me or if it was a cold. Either way I still gave it my all and after maybe 45 minutes of preaching, I had gathered a nice crowd that stayed for many more hours.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 12.40.16 AM

As the day progressed the crowd got closer and closer and circled around me. Only one man at least pretended to be so mad that he wanted to get violent, but others held him back. I found the general attitude of this campus to be very light hearted and mocking. They held signs that said, “Vader is Lord” and “The Death Star Cometh.” It was good that this campus got a good healthy dose of rebuke from the Scriptures.

Downtown Louisville Kentucky

Downtown Louisville

After campus one day there was an art festival downtown the team wanted to preach at. I was told that this event attracted a lot of homosexuals. When I started preaching there was one man in particular who became very angry and started heckling me. When sinners get convicted, they respond either in anger or humility. He was choosing anger. But praise God there were five Police Officers standing right there watching. This helped him to control himself a little better. With all these Police Officers and this angry heckler, a decent size crowd gathered which is rare on the streets.

One homosexual came up to engage me in dialog. It seemed to me that he was trying to distract me but I continued to engage him directly about his sin. He said that he believed in God but was sure that he couldn’t change his sexuality. I explained to him how sexuality is in the brain and through his free will he can rewire his brain. God created us with the power of neuroplasticity – we shape and form the connections of our brain through our choices. I explained to him that if he would repent and start obeying God, his brain would heal.

I also explained to him the difference between temptation and sin. Temptation is a suggestion to the mind to gratify a natural desire in an unnatural way. Sin is a free choice of the will to obey the temptation. Temptation is not sin. I explained to him that he isn’t a homosexual because he has homosexual temptations, but because he chooses to embrace those temptations. If he would just say no to sin and yes to God, he would no longer be a homosexual. You shouldn’t identify yourself based on your temptations but by your chosen character.

Stranded in Tennessee Broken Down 

As we were traveling through the United States with our travel trailer, we hit the hills of Tennessee and that was too much stress on some of the old parts of our vehicle. Our vehicle overheated and was leaking coolant. We were stranded in a small town and had difficulty finding a repair shop for our SUV. When we finally did find a repair shop, they charged us an enormous amount of money just for replacing the radiator, which is hard on a missionary budget.

When we hit the road again with our travel trailer, we didn’t make it far before we overheated and started leaking coolant again. We took it back to the repair shop and found out that they didn’t replace any of the old hoses when they replaced the radiator, even though they charged us a fortune! Once they replaced all the old hoses and we hit the road again, we managed to get out of the hills of Tennessee without overheating anymore. We had to drive with our heat on just to keep the meter down. We finally made it home to Texas but knew something was still wrong. When we took it to our repair shop back home we found out that though they replaced the radiator and the radiator hoses, they didn’t replace the radiator cap! And we were still leaking that way! Praise God we finally made it home!


Making a Difference for the Kingdom of God!

I get emails all the time from all over the world from either sinners who repented and got right with God under our ministry or from believers who have been inspired to share their faith or whom we have influenced theologically.


“My names Martin, I’m 26, born in Armenia and raised in Los Angeles. I came across your videos on YouTube and you’ve taught me a lot of important biblical and historical truths, the early church (Amazing documentary) and that we actually can be holy and saints and are commanded to be. in the 15 years that I’ve gone to different Christian churches I’ve never heard any of the important topics that you talk about around where I attend, by Los Angeles area. I want to thank you for you service and your sermon videos have greatly impacted my walk as a Christian towards building a stronger faith with God. My dad is a Calvinist and it’s been helpful to be able to defend the truth when him his pastor and friends debate me all at once. I really commend you for what your doing because it’s serious, the early church belief is so crucial. Even outside of Calvinism a lot of denominations are geared towards Augustine’s teachings with sinful nature which is leading Christians with no end goal of achieving holiness and being what God intended us to be. I thank you again and I know you must be busy but a reply would be awesome, you’ve been a great role model to me.”


“I somehow wound up with a post of yours on Facebook. I honestly had my skeptical doubts about your tactics. But then, I watched several of your videos and I am in awe of your courage and your anointing. As you were preaching, I watched the crowd of some young college students. They are so hungry for the WORD. So hungry, they stood within hearing distance, nonchalantly pecking around on their phones. They were acting like nothing was going on. And one said in shock, “You mean I’m going to hell for being homosexual?” I was floored. They honestly don’t know. They haven’t been taught. And they are hungry for what you are giving them. And then there was the lesbian who challenged you at every statement. Even made lewd remarks and it went right past you like a feather in the wind. We have to get bolder in our faith in Jesus and the good news of the gospel. I heard one guy tell you that these people need love and mercy. Telling them the truth IS love and mercy. You make me proud. We are surrounded by Christians who dilute the realities of what Jesus taught and you are not one of those. Fight the good fight young man. My group of intercessors is praying for you. Protection and wisdom for you brother. We love you.” ~ Tina

“How have things been going with the ministry lately? I hope all is well with the family as well. Was just thinking about you today. Wanted to let you know how thankful I am to have met a brother like you. You have done such awesome work for the kingdom of God. One of the things I will always respect you most for is the way you deal with those with whom you are in disagreement. I have never seen you lose your cool even in the face of mockery, scoffing, or physical violence. Coming to know you through FB and youtube was a breath of fresh air for me back in 2009. I was a young man trying to convince old people in a baptist church that we were called to live holy. They made me feel like a lone nut lol. It was great to find brothers like you, who were not only in agreement with what I was seeing concerning the Christian life, but were also around the same age. That is something I struggled with mightily, my age. I was a 21 year old who was asked to teach a brotherhood of a baptist church. The average age of the men in the brotherhood was probably around 53 years old. Seeing brothers of my generation boldy preaching the truth of the gospel gave me confidence that God’s hands were not tied when it came to whom he could use to spread his word. I know we have not talked much over the years, but I wanted to take this time to let you know that your ministry for the Lord is appreciated. You are one of a few brothers I know who would make his works available for free, even if just for a short time. Stay encouraged and continue to walk in the way brother. Hope to see you one day face to face. Love you man, God bless. “

It is your support that makes all this possible!
