On Friday 13th
Brother Pat O’Connell from New Bern, NC, Ross Jackson from Greenville, NC and myself went to UNC campus in Chapel Hill
to preach the gospel. It had been raining quite heavy for the pass few days and just started to lighten up on this day and
I really didn’t expect a great number of students to be hanging around the pit area much less passing through, but to
my surprise the campus was busy as ever giving us the perfect opportunity to preach the gospel in Jesus name.
When I arrived with my
cross and sign Pat was already open-air preaching; presenting the gospel to the crowd that were drawn, and those who passed
by could not escape the hearing of it, which also includes the fact that God commands all men everywhere to repent (forsake
there sins). This “seems” to be a missing part of the gospel that is not preached much, BUT without true repentance
there is no remission of sins. True repentance is sorrow for sinning against God and forsaking sin.
UNC Chapel Hill student
population is reported to be about 28,000, and it seems as though many of them are and have been deceived in believing in
another god or that there is no God. In spite of there deception and free will to choose to do evil the loving God who created
them have commissioned us to preach repentance and remission of sins in Jesus name to them. In this His love for them is proclaimed
that even they who reject Him as a Holy God who commands obedience to His word still can receive pardon from there sins upon
repentance toward Him.
Although most who stopped
to hear the preaching of God’s word came to mock, heckle, or disagree with the Bible in some form or fashion. We know
that God’s word is LIVING and as we preach it the living word enters the ear gate of the hearers and performs what the
Lord has intended for it to do. The few (Matt 7:14) who yields to the Holy Spirit and believe (commit to, trust-in) the Lord
Jesus Christ shall be saved.
Many I spoke with and
attempted to reason with on this day made a valiant effort to justify their sins against a Holy God. But the bottom line always
came to they love there sins more then they love Jesus, and that they were slaves to there sins (John 8:34).
One student named John
that I reasoned with for a long while had many good questions regarding the bible, God, Jesus, 9/11, campus preachers, judgment,
etc. One of his questions was if knowing Jesus is the only way that a person can be saved from eternal damnation. What happens
to groups of people in the world that live isolated from the world and die without even hearing or knowing about Jesus?
I told John that the scriptures plainly states that God’s laws are written on every man’s heart and mind and God
(Jesus) will judge them according to there obedience to what they already know. For when they disobey there conscience and
steal, lie, murder, rape, etc. They are sinning and disobeying God.
John also asked did God
cause or direct the attack on 9/11, and that he heard some preachers state that God did it. My response to John was that God’s
will is that none should perish, but all men have a free will. Many choose to do evil including him by not turning from sin
and believing in Jesus, and when was he going to repent and believe so that he could be saved. He went on to talk about how
he felt his worldviews and ways were right. I told John that I would be praying for him that in has no more pleasure
in his sins, and that he will come to know Jesus Christ as Lord.
What was so good about
this outreach was that besides reaching the masses with open-air preaching we had many one on one and small group dialogue
with the students on this day. My prayer for those that heard the word is that they will be saved.
14:12 There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Preaching the gospel
is “still” the most effective way to reach the lost according to Him that saves souls. There is still POWER in
the preaching of the gospel. It is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth.
|THE GREAT AND ONLY COMMISSION PREACH THE GOSPEL
|HOW SHALL THEY HEAR WITHOUT A PREACHER
We preach the Holy Spirit draws men, convicts them,
they repent and believe and call upon Him, and “THE POWER OF GOD” saves them. Not the church programs (bowling
night, singles retreat, couples retreat, addiction programs, camp meetings, financial success seminars, vocational programs,
men ministries, women ministries, ministries and events for the sake of ministries.
Mark16: 16 He that
believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
Luke 9:23-25 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily,
and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall
save it. For what
is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?
Lets lose our lives
in this world in order that we may be save it. Dear Lord help us (me) lose our life, and give us (me) strength to endure
to the end in Jesus mighty name.

2Timothy 3:1 But
understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of
money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 heartless, unappeasable, slanderous,
without self-control, brutal, not loving good, 4 treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than
lovers of God,
I had to do a little study as to
what principals this school was founded on. The reason being is that I was getting a feeling that this place was started on
Christian values. This is what I found.....North Carolina Central University, a state-supported
liberal arts institution, was chartered in 1909 as a private institution and opened to students
on July 5, 1910.
Yesterday my good
friend and brother, William Taylor and I went to North Carolina Central to witness to the students.
The reason I call this place a mess is the fact that it is saturated with homosexuality and muslims
along with other sin.
William's sign on his cross
states those that are in danger of hell's fire. On that sign were homosexuals and muslims.
This created a stir in the crowd that ended up being the majority of homosexuals and muslims.
I was very surprised to see how many were of these groups that are bound for hell if they do not repent. William and I have
different styles of witnessing but we have the very same purpose and that is to seek and lead those to salvation that are
The school should be ashamed of this
"false advertising". Somewhere from the time of Dr. Shepard and now that "truth" was lost. The plan that Dr. Shepard had was
lost. Most of the people that we encountered yesterday were lost and on their way to eternal destruction in HELL!!! I feel
that the service is a "disservice" because the professors are filling these kids heads with trash. A common question from
a college kid is "who wrote the Bible" then they will say "man wrote the Bible so why are you
going to believe it"? This is what college professors are teaching. Now this is what these ignorant people should be teaching....
2Timothy 3:16 Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His
inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in
obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to God's will in thought, purpose, and action),
17 So that the man of God may be complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly
equipped for every good work. (Amplified)
Something else that you see it such
a disrespect for the Word of God. Disrespect for messengers of God.
One girl called William a nigger and I thought that was pitiful. The gays and lesbians flaunted their homosexuality. William
and I heard many "F-you's". God mockers and haters!!!
2Peter 3:3 Most importantly, I want
to remind you that in the last days scoffers will come, mocking the truth and following their own desires.
It is very sad
because when you think of what they will reproduce. If they are this bad what will the next generation be? They are children
of the devil!! Pray that they repent and get SAVED!!!
We did meet one young man that is looking for help in reaching
out to his peers. He is hooked up with some other people on the campus. We told him that we will help him so we are looking
possibly at doing an outreach with him. Pray for NCCU!!
It was founded by Dr.
James E. Shepard. From the beginning, when it was known as the National Religious Training School.
Today this place is a demonized mess and Dr. Shepard would be ashamed of this school today.
Jesus Christ has commanded His disciples to:
4:2-5 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For
the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers,
having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of
15:18-19 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the
world, therefore the world hateth you.
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men
shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding
glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

|Broad Road To Destruction
THE WORLD AND PREACH THE GOSPEL”
Why? Because the Lord Jesus Christ commands His disciples to do so. To go forth and proclaim the good news of
salvation which only comes through true repentance and faith in Him. For there is no other name under heaven whereby men can
be saved nor no other way. For the gate is still straight and the way will every be narrow.
to say though that many are falsely proclaiming that there is another way, and another Jesus who does not judge wickedness,
and that there is another gospel that allows a person to stay in there sins, and still be able to enter the kingdom of God.
But I proclaim to you by the word of God that those persons are following another spirit and there end will be eternal hell
fire except they repent and be converted that their sins may be blotted out.
It is so evident
that we are living in a wicked generation filled with ALL kinds of unrighteousness, fornication, covetousness, maliciousness,
and God haters as it was in the day of Noah when only eight persons were saved.
or “spiritual” seem to be in fashion today where tolerance to sin, open-mindedness to everything except the truth
in God’s command to repent, believe and live holy is acceptable
Through the righteousness
of Jesus Christ and power of the Holy Spirit that dwells on the inside of the believer God commands and expects His disciples
to walk as Noah did in his corrupt degenerate age. Preacher of righteousness, justified before God by faith, and holy in living
(for without holiness no man shall see God / Heb. 12:14).
I encounter too
many people today that “claim” to be a Christian and not only refuse to live holy but also hate the preaching
of true repentance toward God, holy living required of God in order to enter the kingdom of God, and that Jesus Christ the
risen Savior commands all men to forsake there sins and go and sin no more (Acts 17:30, John 5:14, 8:11). It is easy to follow
a “gospel” that doesn’t demand denying ones self-daily and obey the word of God. But God is not mocked.
Men can deceive themselves and others but they cannot deceive God. For on judgment day they shall be judged for every idle
word, every vain word, every deed and every wicked word, which they have spoken.
Over the past
month while preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ in Durham at events such as the Durham’s Centerfest Arts festival,
Durham’s 25th abomination annual gay pride parade, and in the market places and streets of Durham I have
noticed as in the past a common tread among those on the broad road of destruction. “We don’t want the HOLY GOD
of the BIBLE”. We want and have:
- No god
- Many different gods
- A god who only attribute is love
- A god who do not judge sin
- A god of our own understanding
- A god who loves us and pays no attention to our sins
In-spite of their
rejection of the true and living Holy God of the bible God has still commanded His followers to preach the gospel in the mist
of them not fearing there faces, there threats, there hatred which is actually towards God. We are to preach the word in season,
and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. We are in the times when even so-called “Christians”
have turned away from sound doctrines to their own lust and heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears believing damnable
doctrines like once saved always saved (license to sin and still enter the kingdom of Heaven), universal salvation (all will
be saved), Preach Jesus loves you but will not judge you (For you don’t want to push people away from the gospel). I
have news for you that believe preaching hell fire messages will push the sinner away from the gospel of Jesus. THEY ARE ALREADY
AWAY AND CONDEMNED (John 3 not 16 but 18-21).
CONDEMNED; G2919 κρίνω krinō kree'-no
distinguish, that is, decide (mentally or judicially); by implication to try, condemn, punish: - avenge, conclude, condemn,
damn, decree, determine, esteem, judge, go to (sue at the) law, ordain, call in question, sentence to, think.
They need to
repent and cry out to Jesus to save their soul, and ask Him to give them a new heart, and a new spirit. The fear of God is
the beginning of wisdom.
There is still
“SAVING AND DELIVERING POWER IN PREACHING THE GOSPEL” contrary to what a lot of lukewarm and/or so-called Christians
“by name only” try to tell me. Preaching the gospel is the most effective way to reach the lost according to Him
that saves souls. Not all the many worldly programs and seeker friendly don’t want to hurt your feelings sermons that
the “organize” churches are having today to fill there pews in order to enlarge their bank accounts, and make
their payrolls, while making twofold the child of hell as themselves that have no “true compassion” for the lost
or truly following Jesus.
Spots this day
“religious-spiritual bunch” are causing many to shipwreck their faith. Stirring up covetousness in many hearts
with another gospel of earthly pleasures and treasures, which is idolatry and no idolater shall enter the kingdom of God.
They encourage others in self-reliance; self esteem, selfishness, and pride, which God’s hate.
of Christ is to be conformed to the image of Christ and not be conformed to this world. We are to present our bodies
a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is the believer reasonable service.
We are living
in the last days where right is being called wrong, wrong right, truth a lie and a lie the truth. When I’m on the streets
preaching many times people say or yell to me that I’m preaching hate. When in actuality the truth is they hate the
truth. John 3:20 For everyone that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
a gift of God not of works lest any man should boast. But I testify to you this day according to the Holy Scriptures save yourselves from this untoward generation, and work out your own salvation with fear
and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure. (Acts 2:40, Php 2:12-13)
The great commission set forth by the Lord Jesus… Go ye therefore,
and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe
all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.
Jesus effective way of getting the message of salvation out to a wicked generation is to preach the gospel as He did:
From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Mark 1:15 And saying, the time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
If the sinner rejects this message of salvation for their soul it is at their peril, and their blood will not on the
believer hands. All will not be saved…matter of fact only a few will be saved according to the one who saves (Jesus).
Stop trying to please the masses, and not offend anyone with the gospel message. The gospel message is offensive to those
who love their sin more than they love Jesus who commands them to stop sinning.
Who is on the Lord’s side…let him take up his cross and follow Jesus separating himself from the lukewarm,
the religious, the “spiritual”, those who have erred from the faith, destitute of the truth, supposing that gain
is godliness, those who willfully practice sin, and those who are partakers of other men sins. Have no fellowship with these
unfruitful works of darkness. Lest you become partakers of their plagues to come.
Let the redeemed be encouraged in persecution, trials, and tribulations the Lord God
Jesus Christ reign forevermore. Our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding
and eternal weight of glory.
Let the believer go forth and preach God’s love, preach God’s wrath to come, preach God’s grace,
preach God’s mercy, preach God’s judgment, preach Jesus death burial and resurrection. Those who are drawn by
the Holy Spirit and submits to the Father’s perfect will (2 Peter 3:9) shall be saved. The majority that rejects this
preaching will be cast into the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone (Revelation 20: 11-15). But let it be known Almighty
God’s love, grace, and tender mercies have been extended to all.
While we look
not at the things, which are seen, but at the things, which are not seen: for the things, which are, seen are temporal; but
the things, which are not seen, are eternal.
He that endures to the end shall be saved entering into the kingdom of God.
The narrow way
leads to eternal life and few there be that find it as in the day of Noah so shall it be in the coming of the Son of Man.
Go and preach the gospel. Let God be true and every man a liar.
In the which
the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt away with fervent heat, “the earth”
also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
is promoted as a time of fun near the river with plenty of activities with an “ environmental or cultural connection
to the river”. When in actuality it is promoting “IDOLATRY” worshipping and reverencing the creation and
not the creator. Now I know some will say wait a minute William we should be good stewards of our environment. To this I would
say yes be a good steward not an idolater. The first commandment states, “Thou shall have no other gods before me”.
of the people I have encountered over the years at this event are “God haters”. Yes they openly reject a living
God who commands obedience to His holy word (the bible), and some have fabricated a god in there own mind who they say is
a god of “all love” and allows you to be you and will not cast them into hell for there sins.
I have also notice
over the years that this is an event that attracts a large number of lesbians, openly displaying their vile unnatural affections
for one another. Some of them come with “kids”. Dear lord I pray
you send forth laborers into your harvest to lift up your standard of holiness whereby such little kids who are being indoctrinated
into this lifestyle will hear the “true” word of the Lord and thereby be able to properly discern right from wrong
and good from evil in Jesus mighty name.
1:24-26, 28 “Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their
own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the
Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change
the natural use into that which is against nature: And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave
them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.”
Out of the few
confessed to be “Christians” I met at the gate there was one lady and her young son (who said his dad lead him
to Christ recently and he was born –again) went in and soon returned and told me they had to leave for God’s present
was not in there. As I explained to her that we carry the light of Jesus in us to these dark places she agreed but said they
could find a better place to spend the 4th of July holiday to celebrate and relax.
Many of those
who attended seem to be offended and outraged by my signs and cross that boldly says across the top JESUS SAVES and then list
all those that are “endanger” of hells fire unless they repent. The other sign says that God commands all men
to repent and stop sinning (Jesus told the adulterer who was forgiven and the man healed at the pool called Bethesda go and
“sin no more”). Some said what I was doing is hatred which my reply was no its love. I love you so much I don’t
mind your hatred toward me warning you of God’s wrath to come. There were
several men and women who were in my face shouting that I was disgusting and calling me all kinds of names. As I continued
to share the gospel with them and try to reason with them a little small voice in the back of my mind or spirit would say
these are those who Christ died for, and so were you. That little small voice motivated me to continue preaching and sharing
the word of life.
I had a long
one-on-one conversation with a lady that said she was a Christian, went to church regularly, spoke in tongues, and was filled
with the Holy Spirit, but had a problem with sex (adultery) and was being tempted as we spoke. I told her God commands her
to stop sinning, and that if she didn’t she was going to hell if she died in her sins, and that she was a hypocrite
not a follower of Christ. She denied that she was going to go to hell for her sins because she was human. I told her being
human was not a sin, and that the scripture says in 1 Peter 1:14-16
obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called
you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation (Living); Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy".
She left to enter
the festival declaring out loud that she was still going to heaven. She soon returned after finding the admission was $15.00
and allowed me to resume sharing the scriptures with her. I took her to 1 Corinthians 10:13
hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above
that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear is".
I explained to
her that temptation is not a sin it is the acting on the temptation, which is sin but God will give the believer a way to
escape the temptation at the very moment they are tempted. The believer have to at that moment decide to take the way of escape
and continue to follow Jesus or act on the temptation fulfilling the lust of their heart which leads to hell.
She then asked
me to pray for her that God would deliever her from fornication.. I prayed that she would have no more pleasure in sin and
that she would hate what God hates and love what God loves and that as she put her trust in Jesus he would keep her from falling
into sin. Angela…thanked me and said that she was going home to spend some time with the Lord. Glory to God.
Now unto him
that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy.
I thank God for
using this broken vessel to preach Jesus this day to the many who are lost, and that His living word that is sharper than
any two edged sword pierced through the self-delusions, and denial, of the hearers and reaches that inner man that was created
to serve the living God. And those that would heed to the gospel message of Jesus would repent and believe to the saving of
2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in
the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

|In the later days some shall depart from the faith
|giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils
|Many shall follow their evil ways by reason of
|whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
Once again at
the annual JW’s deception convention there were thousands of what I believe for the most part are people who have been
deceived following the pernicious ways of the Watch tower society heretical teachings. Such teachings as Jesus was and is
Michael the arch angel, there is no real hell, salvation is by works through their organization and the laundry list of lies
As I stood at
the main entrance preaching and warning those attending, exposing the lies of the Watchtower society many “seemed”
to ignore the warning. But praise be to God His word does not return void. There was one man in the parking lot named Mark
who was getting out of his car with his family and I called out to him and said, hey man you in the brown shirt and glasses
don’t lead your beautiful family down this road of destruction. He was putting on a necktie and yelled back to me…I’ll
be right there. As he approached I didn’t know was he coming in peace or anger. But praise be to God he said he came
to found out if what I was preaching was true. He stated that the parking attendants were telling everyone not to pay me any
attention and go on inside.
As I shared with
him the lies of the watchtower society and the truth about Jesus he stated that he was Baptist and his wife was raised a JW.
I encouraged him to be a workman of the word of God and search the scriptures to see if what I was saying was true. I also
encouraged him to ask God to give him wisdom to share the truth of His word with his wife and that the eyes of her understanding
will be open. Especially since the JW’s are forbidden to read any other religious writings. Mark expressed his grief
with the JW’s not wanting to lesson and reason with me with the scriptures. I explained to him that that is how a cult
operates, and he as head of his household need to rely on the Spirit of God to help rescue his family from the JW teachings
of the devil. Please pray for Mark and his family.
A few other attendees
I had the opportunity to share with refused to believe that the watchtower Society teaches that Jesus is Michael the archangel.
They also didn’t have a response to Jesus stating in their New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures that He is Jehovah
God. (Revelation 1:8, and Rev. 22:13). When they are taught that Jesus is not Jehovah.

believe in the risen Christ Jesus who is Jehovah and the only way to eternal in life.

On June 10th
Bill Fitten from Cleveland Ohio, Pat O’Connell from New Bern North Carolina and myself drove to Tennessee to the Riverbend
festival in Chattanooga, and Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester TN to warn the wicked (Those disobedient to God’s
word) of there wicked ways, which are sins against the holy God who created them.
Ezekiel 3:18-21 "When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou
givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die
in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness,
nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.
Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit
iniquity, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his
sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that
the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul".
Our prayer and
desires were that some would turn from their sins and cry out to God and in doing so there souls would be saved. The capacity
crowds at these events were estimated at over 650,000 for Riverbend, and over 80,000 for Bonnaroo.
As with many
of these events while preaching God’s holy word we find many of the revelers hate the gospel because their sins are
revealed and instead of forsaking them and crying out to God many continue to choose the broad road to destruction.
What really saddens
me though was the many we encountered that confessed to be “Christian’s” and were openly sinning (cussing,
drunk, smoking and the such). When confronted with their sins and disobedience to the word of God, many replied that they
are saved and can never lose their salvation no matter what they did, which is a lie from the pits of hell. For the scriptures
plainly says that without holiness “no man” shall see God. Jesus the one who saves said in Revelation 3:5 “He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot
out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.” It is
very clear from Jesus who saves that he that do not overcome sin there name will be BLOTTED OUT of the book of life. Strong’s
Concordance definition of blot out is: to smear out, that is, obliterate, wipe away.
I know the many scriptures that the proponents of once saved always saved use to justify there being able to continue
in sin and still enter the kingdom of God. I will not spend the time here to show where they err at not rightly dividing the
word of truth. But I will say the Bible is clear that no “sinners” shall enter the Kingdom of God. He that endures
to the end shall be saved. God gives the “Born-again” believer a way to escape temptation and overcome sin (1
The four nights and three days we spend laboring in the Lord’s harvest was exhausting some times hazardous but
fruitful in that the word of God went forth, the Spirit of God convicted the hearts of those in sin of their unrighteousness,
and a few heeded to the drawing of the Spirit and came out from the unfruitful works of darkness.
One couple I spoke with for over an hour one night that confess to be Christians and soon to be married were actually
living in fornication by kissing and lusting for one another, which according to God kissing and lusting for one another is
set aside for married life. In 1 Corinthians 7:1-3 The apostle Paul writes to the believers at Corinthians that in order to
“avoid” fornication it is good for a man not to touch a woman. When I explained to the couple that when they are
kissing as they stated they do “mouth-to mouth” they are acting as married couples and are committing fornication.
Jesus said that whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed “adultery” in his heart”.
(No adulterer shall enter the kingdom of God / 1 Cor. 6:9). They at first was unwilling to receive the word but as I explained
to the young man that while he is kissing, rubbing and lusting after her he is yielding to temptation, and the bible says
in James 1:14-15;
But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin,
when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
They agreed that Christians are commanded to live holy before God, and
that they didn’t want to be a stumbling block to others and were recently talking with each other about some of the
things we discuss. My prayer for them was that they live holy and seek the Lord for daily strength to do so.
I had another long conversation with a confess “Christian”
couple that said they will one day be married but didn’t see it a sin against God to be kissing and living as though
they were married because they were going to get married “someday”. This couple I named Mr. & Ms. Cause. I
plan on posting the video of our conversation soon. God willing. The reason I gave them this name is because they kept justifying
why they had a “cause” to sin according to their interpretation of the scriptures. Mr. Cause even wrongly interpreted
scriptures stating that he could “murder” someone and still enter the kingdom of heaven.
Though many outright rejected the gospel message we know that the word
of God is quick, and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit
performing want the Lord sends it forth to do.
The power of God and His word was more on display at the Bonnaroo Music
Festival, which is similar to the Woodstock music festival held in 1969. This festival is held on 700 acres of open land.
People come from around the world and camp out for four days fulfilling their lust and the lust of their Father the devil.
Each year we get resistance from those in charge who try to prevent us
from entering to preach the gospel, “But” God has always made a way for not only us getting in to preach but also
without paying the fees (general admission for 4-days $275.00). One of the reason they can’t stop us is because there
is a state/county road that runs all the way through this festival and by law we are able to enter and preach as long as we
stay on the road. To God be the glory.
As excepted the devil children are hostile against the gospel and openly
express such hostility. But along with Michael Siemer, Brian O’Connell, Ricky Nash, Mike Awe, Tracey B, John Mcglone,
Pat O’Connell, and Bill Fitten, we went into the enemy camp Preaching Jesus, Repentance, Salvation, Heaven, Hell, God’s
judgment and righteousness in addition to giving an answer to the few who asked of the hope that is in Christ Jesus.
People usually ask me did you get any fruit in which I can only reply
the word of God went forth the seed was planted some was watered but God receives the increase and adds to “His Church”
as He wills. I can also say that I did have the opportunity in the mist of all this reveling to share the gospel with some
people one-on-one and they were convicted of their sins but loved their sins so much that they decided to stay in there sins.
My prayer as always for people like them is that they have no more pleasure in their sins and turn to the one who can not
only save them from eternal hell fire but who is able to deliver them from their sins and keep them from falling (back in
their sins) in order that He may present them faultless before the present of His glory with exceeding joy.

One of the slogans
at this festival was: What are your Earth Day plans to make the world a bit better?
To this I reply…Preach
the gospel to every creature!!! Knowing that the whole creation groaneth and
travaileth in pain together until now, and it is only the gospel of Jesus Christ that has power to save. This same omnipotent
power will create a new heaven and new earth after the burning up of this wicked world (2 Peter 3:10 / Revelation 21:1).
Many of the goers at this event seem to have a form of godliness professing to be wise and religious, but not submitting
to the Lordship of Jesus Christ being conformed to His image rather choosing to be conformed to the world (earth) image.
The faithful missionary team from New Bern, North Carolina consisting of Brother Pat O’Connell, his daughter
Sarah (with child), and husband Jude came up to help preach at this gathering of predominately lost souls whom Christ died
for. Brother/Pastor Terry Shuff was able to stop by in the mist of him feeding the poor and less fortunate in Durham to also
help with this evangelistic mission.
While Jude and Sarah had many of the one on one gospel conversations while holding there signs. Pat and I focused more
on open-air preaching while holding our crosses and signs. To God be the glory for the “living” word that went
forth at this event. Thank God for the parent who stopped with their child and instructed them to listen to the gospel message.
May God convict the hearts of those who rejected the gospel message of Jesus Christ as the only Savior. Some voiced their
opinions that preaching repentance toward God, living holy, righteousness of God, and judgment of God, was preaching hate.
What they failed to realize due to the god of this world blinding there eyes (2 Corinthians 4:1-6), and the love of their
sins is that we were preaching the love of God along with the warnings of the Holy God to all those who disobey His commands.
1Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it
is the power of God.
5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us.

William Taylor Sr.

My heart desire
and prayer to God for the people of the City of Durham is that they might be saved for the word of God says if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
God has been so gracious and merciful to this City throughout this month of April. His longsuffering with those
who choose to be disobedient against His Holy word. God’s will is that
none should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of His judgment is coming on all the children of disobedient.
Each day as I go to the streets many times with my Dear Brother Terry
Shuff and preach the gospel and see the multitude of those who choose to sin and who are slaves to their sins as I once was
grieves my heart knowing the terror of the Lord. But what especially saddens me is the multitude of young men in the hood
who are dying in their sins and many who will probably die this summer in their sins except they repent and believe the gospel.
BUT God has knitted me and some other laborers together providing us
strength, wisdom, daily provisions, and boldness to preach the gospel, which is the power of God to salvation.
May the Lord God continue to bless Brother Bill Fitten (Cleveland Ohio),
and Pastor Don Dikes, and his precious wife Robin (Daytona Florida), Clark (Apex, NC), Lisa (Raleigh, NC), and others of God’s
remnant who left there “Jerusalem” for a while and came to Durham North Carolina recently to help the Brethren
here lift up the mighty name of Jesus while working in His harvest. To God be the glory.
I have put together a short youtube video of the street ministry over
the past few weeks and I pray that the Holy Spirit will make it come alive to you. For in it you will see the living word
of God going forth, Jesus being lifted up, lives being touch, and changed, needs being met (physically & spiritually),
and people being convicted of their sins, yielding to the Holy Spirit.
Thank you Lord for sending forth laborers into your harvest.

|Taking The Gospel To The Streets of Philly
Thirty-four years prior to the above photo I was a few blocks over from here at 8th & Race St. being incarcerated
for a crime committed while serving at the time my Father the devil. Praise God for grace, mercy, deliverance, and the blood
Praise the name
of the Lord… last week I spent two days in Philadelphia preaching Jesus, and since my return to Durham Wednesday evening
it has been almost non-stop hitting the streets with the gospel. If the past
week is any indication of what lies ahead this spring and summer for ministry…to God be the glory. This past trip to
Philly was twofold: 1. To minister to my blood Brother Aaron in Prison who is serving a 30-year sentence (Please agree with
me in prayer for his salvation). 2. To minister the gospel of Jesus on the streets I grew up in.
I spent most
of my time preaching on the streets downtown at 8th & Market St. Philly is a unique place to minister at; the
population is approximately 1.5 million. Then you have the daily influx of thousands of people every day from the surrounding
counties in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Most of these people according to the scriptures are lost and on the Broad road to
destruction, and need to hear the gospel of Jesus the risen Christ. It’s not unusual to see people preaching on these
streets, or passing out some type of religious material. Its what they are preaching or promoting that matters. There are
the Black Hebrew Israelites, the Muslims, Jehovah Witnesses, and others preaching another gospel and/or another Jesus.
As I was lifting
up the name of Jesus and proclaiming that no man could be saved from their sins other then by His name, and that God
commands all men everywhere to repent. The power in His name was manifested.
Some who were
lost were draw by the Spirit of God to hear the living word, such as Mary & Matt (two heroin addicts I prayed for). Some
were encouraged to cease from being lukewarm Christians and return to their first love and become hot again. Many were warned
of the impeding judgment of a Holy God to those who continue in their sins. They also heard of His grace and mercy that
He extends to the just and unjust.
Some who promoted
and preached another Jesus, and another gospel were rebuked and corrected in knowing the truth that there is only one that
is able to save them from their sins and that is the risen Lord Jesus. Not another Jesus who was just a prophet, or a Jesus
that wasn’t God but just a good man.
The Lord Jesus
tells us as believers to go and preach (Herald) the gospel. I find that street preaching like this especially in metropolitan
areas is most effective in reaching the masses with the word of God. For faith comes by hearing and hearing the “word
of God”. How shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have
not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher. Let’s stick to the all-knowing Lord Jesus plan and go into the
hedges and highways and compel them to come in His house, which is the Kingdom of God not brick and mortar edifices.
back to Durham I hooked up again with Brother Terry Shuff and for the next few days and some late nights we hit the streets,
and bus station ministering the word of God and ministering free food to those in need. As the weather warms up more people
will be coming out and spending more time outdoors. Where we plan to greet them day and night with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

2Peter 3:9-15 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward,
not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in
the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the
earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner
of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God,
wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according
to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look
for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. And account that the longsuffering
of our Lord is salvation.

come in. When she came out and drew a crowd I started preaching and shouted out to her to put some clothes on the Lord Jesus

to be reveled.

|To forgive her of her sins and save her
I arrived at Bike week
on Thursday at 4:00pm. After setting up the travel trailer and repairing a major water leak on it I was able to hit Main Street
at 9:45pm. I hooked up with the Raven Ministry team and for the next few hours it was all about preaching Jesus to those on
the Broad road to destruction. For this cause we were sent to open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and
from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins through true repentance and faith in God.
On Friday morning Pastor
Don and his wife Robin from Raven Ministries and I hit Main Street to preach the gospel and pass out gospel tracts. The first
young lady I met and offered a gospel tract to was Crystal Johnson. I asked her did she know Jesus and was she saved. Crystal
said she knew of Jesus but was not saved. I began to minister to her salvation through faith in Jesus Christ and repentance
toward God that leads to eternal life. Afterwards I asked Crystal did she want to be saved. She said yes. I asked her did
she know how to pray, and if she did… for her to pray to Jesus in her own words to save her. As Robin and I stood with
Crystal she asked Jesus to forgive her of all her sins, to help her, and to come into her life and save her. Halleluiah. After
admonishing Crystal in the things of the Lord Robin and Crystal exchanged phone numbers and Crystal said she would love to
go to Church with her Sunday and bring her young daughter. Praise the name of Jesus for saving grace.
The fishing for men was
awesome. As we preached the gospel the Holy Spirit was drawing the men. Pastor Don and his wife Robin seem to always have
some fish on the hook of God’s word ministering and praying with them.
By Friday afternoon Michael
Siemer, his wife Marie, little Mike, Brian O’Connell, Ralph, and Dean from Inverness, Florida had arrived at our camp
at the International Church parking lot. From here we launch our daily day and night mission of preaching Jesus. Having compassion
on some making a difference, and others trying to save with fear declaring the righteous judgment and terror of the Lord.
By Saturday morning Pat O’Connell, his daughter Jennifer, and John from New Bern, North Carolina had joined us in harvesting
souls for the kingdom of God.
God allowed us to have
many more ministering opportunities in the mist of this idolatress event were many come to revel in their sins. For the most
part many of these lost souls do not fear God and have no “reality” of the ultimate penalty of sin…eternal
death in Hells fire.
But thanks be to God for
drawing men to Himself through His Spirit, and who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the
ministry of reconciliation; to “witness” that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.

2009 / Update
Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And of some have compassion,
making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire;
hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
Seven days on
the front line in the harvest field at what is called the wickedest reveling party in the USA.
Along with many other Soldiers of Christ from across this nation who through the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus
Christ answered the call to Go into the world and preach the gospel. I stayed at Celebration Church in Metairie. They opened
up their doors at one of their facilities for Raven Ministries and many of the regulars who descend on this annual event.
I appreciate the members of this Church for allowing us to use this facility free of Charge. The facility is equipped with
large rest rooms, full kitchen, sleeping quarters, and areas for praise, worship, and prayer. Normally throughout my travels
it is hard to find a church that would even let you park in there parking lot while you spend time in there City ministering
to the lost.
again to hook up with Michael Siemer and his family, Brian O’Connell, Ricky Nash, and his wife Shawna (her first Mardi
Gras crusade) Mike Awe, Joe Hupchick, Ben and Mary House, Christina House, my Brother in the Lord Terry Shuff who also came
down from Durham and many other Brothers and Sisters.
The battle for
the lost souls here was fierce. Spiritually we know we are not wrestling against
flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, and against
spiritual wickedness in high places. The lost souls not be known to them are being held slave to there sins. John 8:34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
But by the “Power
of God” we have actually seen some that have heard the word and receive it be set free from the bondage of sin. I have
shared the word of God to hundreds and preached to thousands of people here and wish I had the time to share all of the good,
bad, and ugly that goes along with harvesting souls in a wicked and immoral place and event such as this. I have uploaded
a video on youtube to give you a taste, and feel of this huge harvest field. Click on the following link: Mardi Gras 2009
Pastor Terry Shuff account of some fruit of the harvest at this crusade
William and I ran across Lionel in the French Quarter
last Thursday. Lionel is a 50 year old homeless man that spent 21 years of his life in the Angola Prison. He had been out
of prison since 2000 but the enemy has worked in his mind to keep him in the bondage of prison in his mind. He keeps the years
in prison as an excuse for his life not being productive today. He told us that he was on fire for Jesus while in prison but
then he returned to his old habits when he got out. ("Jail-house religion") Lionel also used the excuse of losing everything
from Hurricane Katrina for not living a proper lifestyle today.
William ministers to Lionel countering all his excuses
with what the WORD says! Lionel continued to make excuses and William
continued to hammer him with the Word of God.
William prays for Lionel after both us poured the Word into him.
After a while we told Lionel that now he had a decision to make. I told him that he could go the opposite direction than we
were going and continue to make excuses or that he could come with us back to our camp. I told him that there he would get
three meals a day and most of all that he could soak in the presence of the Lord for the next 5-6 days. He then said "I am
going with you" and he stayed with us Thursday and Friday night. He was able to get showered, shaved, and get all new clothes
while with us.He hit Bourbon Street with us on Friday night. He passed out tracts and was able to listen to different team
members minister the Gospel.
There was some reason that he would not go into the Iberville
Projects with us on Saturday. He never told the reason he just said that there was no way that he could go there. I dropped
him off as we got close and told him that I hoped to see him again before we left. He came back just before lunch on Monday
and said that he was just keeping his promise that he would see us again before we left. Lionel was led back to Jesus by us
but now he has the decision of who he is going to follow. He is a very nice guy and I pray that he makes the right choice
and follows Jesus. I ask that you also pray for Lionel.
/ Mardi Gras 2009
We spent the
first day and night in Jackson Square and on Bourbon Street warning those whom Christ died for of His judgment that is coming upon
all those who insist on sinning against the Holy God.
In Jackson Square
the first thing a person encounters in front of and all around the Catholic St Louise Cathedral is all of the tarot card and
psychic readers promoting hope by devilish means which is a abomination unto the Lord. Deuteronomy 18:10-12.
Above are some pictures
of the psychic readers I preached the gospel to and instead of believing the truth in the death, burial, resurrection, holiness,
and call to repentance toward God the pyschic in the picture standing believes in another Jesus that lives
in everyone, everything, and who is not God, but was just a good person who she says she likes.

Louisiana, God willing for eight days being obedient fulfilling the great commission to go into the world and preach the gospel
to every creature. This day salvation has come to this wicked City among many other Cities. For the scriptures declare behold
today is the day of salvation. Jesus said that he did not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance proclaiming
that the kingdom of heaven is at hand. With this charge I GO to preach the gospel to the lost at Mardi Gras.

THE LIVING CHURCH AT HOLLOWAY & HDYE
|Deb writing down scripture references to study
|BrotherTerry ministering the WORD OF LIFE
|Supplying some help to those in need physically
The Church of Jesus Christ is a living “organism” with Jesus Christ being the Head and Corner Stone. With
the foundation already laid I hooked up with Terry Shuff and we had “church” and ministered to the people needs
this Sunday outside in a parking lot at the corner of Holloway Street & Hyde Park. So many of the people we minister to
(serve) ask us where is our church “building” I normally take my foot and drag it across the ground and say right
here in the streets your standing in it. It’s the “Church” were the doors never close and for the most part
where we can be found through out the week at different corners, parking lots, or wherever the Holy Spirit leads ministering
the gospel, in addition to supplying some needs to the lost and poor.
“Church service” consisted of distributing free boxes of food, gospel tracks, and one–on one, or
one-to- many preaching the living word of God. In proclaiming the gospel to many of the people who came out today. It seems
like the majority of those I ministered too either was backslidden or false converts to Christianity (Believed they were saved
at some point, but never stop living for the devil). So the theme of my preaching today was that God just doesn’t want
them to confess their sins to Him (Roman 10:9-10), but He wants, and commands them to forsake their sins (Acts 17:30), which
is true repentance. And it’s only then that He (God) can not only save them from eternal hells fire but He also will
give them away to escape those sins (1 Corinthians 10:13).
I also expounded to them Titus 3:5 where its not by works of righteous that a person is saved or by the outward submersion
in water baptism but its by the renewing of the Holy Spirit according to God’s mercy.
For when a person truly repents, believe the gospel, and call upon the name of the Lord Jesus the Spirit of God will
super naturally enter into that person, dwelling on the inside of them and they will experience His undeniable present and
peace. There desires will change from wanting to serve the devil to wanting to serve the True and Living God more.
One of the young ladies present said to me well I’m ready to be born-again but when I further share with her
about the Holiness of God and without holiness no man can see God. She concluded that she wasn’t quite ready to forsake
all of her sins, but she thanked me for opening up the scriptures to her in away she never knew before. I proceeded to tell
her and those around listening that today was the day of salvation, the Kingdom of God was at hand to them and if they truly
repented and believe the gospel the God who saves would hear there prayers and save them from their sins.
There were so many people
ministered to today physical and spiritually. Thank God for allowing us to be fellow laborers with Him, for some planted,
and some watered but it is He that gets the increase, It is He that adds to His Church and it is He that receives all the
1Corinthians 3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

Sunday Outreach Ministry / Durham, NC / January 18, 2009
|The Street Pastor
|Winning Souls For Jesus
Shuff and I made our rounds through a few neighborhoods to distribute a box of food to an elderly lady in the projects, and
had the opportunity to minister the word of God to her son and his girl friend. Once they told me that they were not living
in Christ Jesus my message for them was straightforward; If they were not born –again Jesus said that they were
serving their Father the devil, and that the devil plan for them was to spend eternity in hell’s fire. But God’s
plan for them was to live eternity in His kingdom, but in order to do that they “Must” forsake there sins and
believe in Jesus.
We made numerous stops
through the hood ministering the word of God to drug addicts, prostitutes, and residents who live there. As we were
riding down one street a guy standing on the corner yelled and ask did we have any more bread. Terry yelled at him and said
yes and that he was going to turn around. When we pulled around the corner from where he was and opened up the back of the
van to give him some bread people all of a sudden began coming from every direction. We began distributing the bread, candy,
coats, handmade knitted hats, scarfs, and warm gloves while taking the time to minister the word of God and pass out gospel
tracks. The clothes, and gloves were left over from the coats, and gloves give away Terry and Eileen did on Saturday. One
of the people who got some items went back home and brought some items from her house for us to give away. Praise God.
This was a sweet
ordained time of God for us to be ministering His word at this spot. Most of the people there were familiar with Terry’s
van that has soul patrol lettered on the back door. Some even thought he was the police when he first started cruising through
the neighborhood some weeks ago. But now when they see him they call him Pastor Terry. I kid him and call him Police Pastor.
Before we left
this location this one prostitute that we have been ministering to came up to us and said the name she gave us wasn't her
real name. Let me tell you my real name so that when you pray you can be really praying for me. We believe the Holy Spirit
is drawing this lady to the Father for she seem to be real receptive to God’s word and as she would hear the word her
eyes would swell up with tears and you could see her humility and brokenness. I ensured her that if she would repent and believe
the gospel of Jesus Christ He will not only deliver her from hell but also from her sins.
Before we called
it a day we were able to stop some more people on the streets and distribute bread for the belly and the Bread of Life (Jesus).
I Thank God for
calling and using us to minister His living word to the lost whom He died for. I also thank those who donated funds, the food,
and clothes that were given to those in need. And I thank God for allowing my
Brother Terry and my paths to cross a few years ago in New Orleans and now team up in Durham a City in need of a Savior
name Jesus Christ.
the Lord Jesus Christ,
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Sunday Service In The Streets
With The Lost
Shuff and I hit the streets of Durham with the gospel, which is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth.
We ministered in a few different neighborhoods where the congregation consisted of confess prostitutes, drug addicts, alcoholics,
fornicators, adulterers, false converts, backsliders, and many who confess to love there sins and acknowledged that they were
serving there Father the devil.
The wonderful thing
about preaching and ministering God’s word to these lost souls is that we know that God’s word does not return
unto him void and that it will produce the effect in the hearts of those that hear it and prosper as the Lord’s will.
It is evident that
the Holy Spirit is working in the hearts of many of these lost souls by the mere fact that so many of the people we encounter
to herald and preach the word stopped to listen. We showed them in what way their lives are wrong, and don’t line up
with God’s Holy word and commands.
In ministering to
the lost I always beg them to repent and believe the gospel, and I ask them do they know what repent means. It seems
that in almost every case there reply is repent means to confess their sins and ask God for forgiveness of their sins. When
I explain that the true meaning of repent is a change of mind with a corresponding action of “FORSAKING” their
sins they usually seem surprised and unwilling to turn from those sins that have so easily entangled them in which
they have an natural propensity to do. I also explain to them that if they don’t REPENT and Believe before their hearts
stop beating Hell will be there eternal home even though that isn’t God’s will for them. For without holiness
no man shall see God (Live in His heavenly kingdom).
In addition to heralding
and preaching the word (for faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God) we also distributed some bread and candy for
the kids that were left over from the van load of produce and food Terry & Eileen distributed Saturday.
This Sunday street service
left me with mix feelings of grief, hope, and even more compassion for the lost. Grief;
watching the prostitutes leaving with there tricks picking them up, addicts leaving searching for the next high, fornicators
& adulterers looking and planning there next sinful act against a Holy God, backsliders sliding deeper in sin, and sons
and daughters of the devil choosing to be hell bound for eternity. Hope; In Jesus Christ
the Savior of the world and His power to deliver those in sin that come to Him, Hope of salvation for those “few”
who requested our phone numbers in order to contact us to hear more about the Hope of Glory (Jesus Christ). And knowing that
all that truly come to Jesus and endure to the end shall be saved to the glory of God.
Compassion; For those enslaved to sin as I once was, knowing that if they believe
this gospel they can be delivered. Romans 10:14; How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall
they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? Roman 10:13 For whosoever shall
call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
My prayer is that
those who the Holy Spirit is drawing to the Father will have no more pleasure in their sins and repent & believe the gospel
in Jesus mighty and wonderful name.

Lord Jesus Christ,

First Night Raleigh, NC 2009 Celebration
On New Years Eve Night 2008 Terry
Shuff and I met up in Raleigh with the New Bern, NC street preaching crew lead by Pat O’Connell; the Fayetteville, NC
crew of Kerrigan Skelly, and John McGlone and preached the gospel at the First night Raleigh 2009 celebration. There were
an estimated 50,000 revelers present to hear the good news of the gospel, which included repentance toward God, Faith in God,
the Holiness of God, the wrath of God, the Mercy of God, The kingdom of God, and the love of God that was exhibited through
the virgin birth, death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
I normally bring in the new year
at home with my immediate family, but when Pat O’Connell called me and stated that they were going to drive 2 ½ hours
this way to preach the gospel on one of our coldest expected nights of the year I couldn’t refuse the offer to join
him in being about our father’s business.
The word of God went forth through
preaching, the passing out of gospel tracts, Banners and body signs with scriptural writings, the visual display of the crosses
we carried, one-on-one witnessing, and the interaction with the crowds that gather which included hecklers, God haters, evolutionists,
Luke warm Christians, homosexuals, lesbians, fornicators, drunkards, and many who believed they were saved through their false
religions. (These are the exact ones our Lord Jesus Christ said that He came to seek and save). For such were some of us.
One of the interactions out of
the many I had this night that stands out in my mind is with a young man that has the same name as me, William who professed
to be born-again and tried to justify his sinful behavior. But as I continued to speak the written word of God to him I
noticed a prolong perplex look came upon his face and at the end of our conversation William thanked me and stated that
he was going to have to read his bible more and be a doer of the word. (I pray that the word of God that was sown into
his spirit was sown into good soil).
The slogan for this event, which
many of the revelers proudly worn displayed on, a button was “ I’m here to party”. The word of God says;
And some have compassion, making a difference: And some save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment
spotted by the flesh.
As we went forth this night abhorring
the revelers sins (hating even the garment) compassion and love was extended to those convicted by their sins. Others were
warned by the stern preaching of the gospel. Repent and Believe The Kingdom Of God Is At Hand. As it is appointed unto men
once to die, but after this the judgment.
Normally I would have taken a
bunch of pictures but it seemed like as soon as we hit the main Fayetteville Street mall area it was non- stop ministering
the word. To God be the Glory.
I plan on adding this event to my yearly schedule
to attend. God willing.
