"The portrait of Jesus in the gospels is altogether different from the picture contemporary evangelicals typically imagine. Rather than a would-be redeemer who merely stands outside anxiously awaiting an invitation to come into unregenerate lives, the Savior described in the New Testament is God in the flesh, invading the world of sinful men and challenging them to turn from their iniquity. Rather than waiting for an invitation, He issues His own – in the form of a command to repent and take on a yoke of submission."

John MacArthur - The Gospel According to Jesus, p. 107.

Here is what it was like in Hollywood last year on Halloween.

Monday, October 25, 2010


Had a great turn out this past weekend, about 16 people came out to witness! We split into two teams one was in Noho and our team went to Hollywood.

Please pray for Jordan who took the "Good Person Test" when I open aired. He and his four friends heard the full gospel and took a bible. Also Joe the Buddhist who heard the good news.

Evidence for Atheism


Did you actually hear any evidence FOR Atheism?

Sunday, October 17, 2010


This year we're going to host a Halloween (Harvest- if you don't feel comfortable using the word Halloween) Party/Evangelism Outing! Costumes are optional.

WHO IS INVITED: Anyone who has already joined us out on the street witnessing is invited to our home for a POT "PROVIDENCE" DINNER

WHEN: SUNDAY, Oct 31st @ 5:00 pm.

WHAT WE'RE DOING: We'll get prayed up and head out the door to Hollywood Boulevard around 7:30 ish' and stay until MIDNIGHT where we'll be LIGHT on an EXTREMELY DARK NIGHT! This year we have about 7500 tracts ready to go!!

I plan to drive there because last year we BARELY made it to the subway after having to walk 6 blocks because they closed down the station due to over crowding. We have a mini van so I'll be able to take 7 people... should be fun! If you plan to take the Noho Subway the last train is at 11:30 pm.
WARNING: Given the "gory" and "immodest" nature of Halloween costumes as the years go by I strongly suggest leaving the kids at home.

Should be fun and I look forward to seeing you all!!

1-Chips & Dip: Sharon

Burbank Media Center Follow-up 10-16-10

Had a great turnout of evangelists last night! These saints are such an encouragement to me. Only the Lord can raise up such faithful brothers and sisters who consistently come out witnessing week after week. We went to Burbank Media Center which is always a tough place to go... the worldliness is totally blinding people to the gospel. But there is always a conversation where I say "Oh thats why the Lord has us here."

Last night I spoke with a young Muslim guy who has left his home because he has been abused by his parents, is now staying with his friend who is a Christian and attending his church and asked me what he should do because he understands what it means if he leaves Islam... he heard the good news, seemed to understand it and took a bible as well.

Glory to God!

Spugeon Quote for the Day!

But if our Gospel is hidden, it is hidden to those who are lost.

2 Corinthians 4:3.

The business of the Christian minister is to preach this Good News, to publish to the sinners the glad tidings that there is a Savior, to point the guilty to Christ and to be constantly saying to each individual sinner, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved.” I care not what may be the learning or eloquence of the minister, though he may speak with the tongue of men and angles, if he does not preach Christ and bid sinners trust in Him, he has mistaken his mission and missed the grand objective for which he was sent! This Gospel is called in the text “our Gospel.” By this expression I understand that the minister must accept it for himself before he can hold it out to others. I am myself to look to Jesus as my own personal Savior—and then I am to cry to others, “Look unto Him, and be you saved, all the ends of the earth.” I must be able to say—“I came to Jesus, and I drank Of that life-giving stream— and then, but not till then, I am to cry, “Ho, everyone that thirsts, come you to the waters.” What a miserable wretch must he be who preaches to others a Gospel in which he has, himself, no share! He spreads the table and invites others to come to the feast, while he, himself, is starving! He is like a plague-stricken physician who knows the remedy for the dis- ease and sees others cured by it, yet dies with the remedy in his hand. Ah me, of all the portions, that must be most dread- ful in the world to come, as well as most uncomfortable in this present life! Surely it must be the portion of the man who preaches to others what he has never experienced in his own soul. Paul might well call it “our Gospel,” for it had saved him, the chief of sinners, and made him a beloved Apostle of Jesus Christ. He might well call it “our Gospel” for he had held it fast in time of persecution and amid all the perils to which he had been exposed—and he was, at last, to give his life as a sacrifice for it! And it must be “our Gospel,” too, “to have and to hold,” or else we cannot preach it with any power!

In the verse following our text, something more is said about the Gospel—it is there called “the glorious Gospel.” There was something in it that aroused and inflamed the Apostle ’s noblest thoughts. Paul was no boaster. “God forbid that I should glory,” he said—but there was one exception—“save in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.” He did not stand up as a mere apologist for the Gospel, or say, “I can defend it against all comers and maintain that it is reasonable,” but he gloried in it as the best and highest Truth of God—as wiser than all the Stoic’s wisdom and more full of joy than all the Epicurean’s pleasure! He gloried in that Gospel which brings full and free forgiveness to the penitent! That Gospel which takes the meanest and basest of mankind and makes them princes in the court of the King of kings! That Gospel which comes to men in poverty, in slavery, in the degradation of superstition, idolatry and crime—and lifts them up out of the horrible pit and the miry clay, sets their feet upon the Rock of Ages, cleanses them, clothes them, puts a new song into their mouth, preserves them from falling and, at last, brings them where they shall see the face of God and dwell forever in His Presence! It is, indeed, a glorious Gospel which can do all this! Yet, alas, the most of men are like the rooster on the dunghill who, when he found a pearl, said that he would sooner have found a grain of barley—they think more of their corn and their wine, their feasts and their mirth, than they do of the inexpressibly glorious things of the Kingdom of Heaven. Oh, that they were wise enough to perceive the glories of this glorious Gospel!

Halloween Tract Display 2010

I just put out this years Halloween tract display. Last year there were about 50 tracts that went out from people who walked by and took one on their way to our neighbors the local Halloween store. Feel free to print the "official" Halloween tract stand sign, cut it out, fold it and tape to a paper plate. Then throw some tracts on it (remember a small weight to keep them from being blown away) leave it on an elevated place in your driveway for folks passing by and see what the Lord does!
Here is the video from last year on having a stand in your yard.

TRANSFORMED this Saturday!

There is still space if anyone is interested you can sign up to attend HERE.

Masters College Students Follow-Up 10-9-10

This weekend we were honored to host a small group of students from Masters College and had a great time. There was a short time of "Crash Course" teaching (which I always struggle with & pity those who have to sit through my teaching) then we ate some pork BBQ and went out on the street! I was very encouraged with their willingness to step into something they may not have been comfortable doing and at least TRY it. Lord willing they will continue in their own "sphere of influence."

Roland open air preached for the first time!!
Mike gets heckled by a lady who was not happy with him preaching.
God in his sovereignty sent this Frence atheist to hear the gospel from a student who was raised in France by his parents who are missionaries.
I've learned its not about success but faithfulness!

Sinless Perfectionism

When we were out last night Elder Bob and I got to talk with a guy who was a "sinless perfectionist." This video came to mind and I thought you would get a laugh out of it.

"In proportion as you set up any righteousness of your own, in that proportion you become independent of the Savior and are divided from Him." - Spurgeon

More from our trip to Colorado

Just thought you might want to see more of our trip to Colorado... (sniff)... (tear in the eye)... we miss it.

Spurgeon quote for the day! 10-2-10

“And He commanded us to preach unto the people and to testify that it is He which was ordained of God to be the Judge of the quick and the dead. To Him all the prophets witness that, through His name, whoever believes in Him shall receive remission of sins.” Acts 10:42, 43.

"This discourse was delivered to a model congregation. One might be satisfied to preach in the middle of the night to such an assembly, for a devout family had come together at the earnest request of a leading kinsman to have the Gospel preached to them. To that assembly not a single person came in late—everyone was there before the speaker arrived. Late attendance frequently means heartless worship, disturbance and distraction. “Now, therefore,” said Cornelius before Peter began, “we are all here present before God.” This was well—O that all hearers were punctual, that all worship might be undisturbed! Better, still, would it be if all our audiences felt that they were “before God”—this would create a solemn feeling and ensure devout attention. The hearers were all in a waiting and expectant mood and all in a receptive condition, desiring, as Cornelius said, “to hear all things that are commanded you of God.” Never was the ground better plowed, nor in a finer condition for receiving the living Seed. Peter gave them a very plain and simple sermon—you cannot find a flourish in it, nor a metaphor, nor even the least attempt at oratory as, indeed, you do not find in the sermons of Inspired men. Those gentlemen who preach grandiloquently are uninspired, you may depend upon that, or else they would not attempt their high and mighty style. The Inspiration which the Holy Spirit gives, leads men to use great plainness of speech. Not in words, only, was Peter plain, but the Truths of God which he taught were the first principles of the faith and it is generally by these that men are saved—points of difficult theology are not often the means of conversion."

C.H. Spurgeon - "The Mediator-Judge and Savior"

Here's what I learned: Be on time for church and when you share the gospel... keep it simple! :)

Magnet Evangelism Follow-up 9-30-10

All I have to say is: Mike wins hands down... "THE HECKLER HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION BELT!"

Last night I joined the Thursday night Magnet Evangelism hosted by our own Mike S. and Dean. WOW! I have never to date seen that many people heckle one preacher. One after another after another people came up to the mic to ask questions or just shouted out opposition to the preaching of the gospel. Mike held his ground and tried his best to compel people to trust Jesus for salvation. He handled things way more compassionately and patiently then I would have.

It must have went on for about an hour SOLID. Very intense! At some moments, there were hecklers heckling hecklers. (Try to say that three times fast!) I have video of some of it but don't have the time to "bleep" out all the profanity. The world needs Christ desperately!

Please pray for Ivan, Matt, the Atheist guy in the black hat and everyone else who heckled Mike!

Could not but speak!

Then I said, "I will not make mention of Him, Nor speak anymore in His name." But His word was in my heart like a burning fire Shut up in my bones; I was weary of holding it back, And I could not. Jer. 20:9

Is it this way for you in your own soul?

That there are times that the Lord puts such a strong hand on your heart that if you don't share Jesus with someone you could go MAD? Where you think to yourself "I'm done doing this!" But then you spend time with Him in His word and think on the kindness of the Lord in your own life. The pit He rescued you from. The love poured out on that cruel cross... and you then find yourself saying again and again "I MUST tell people about Him!"
