This is a shot during the heat of the
day. It gets hot here and that's why we choose the night. Every year thousands of people stroll through here. This is considered an historic district. But the one thing that is more historic is the rampid sin. After all wine and beer are the main drinks passing through the bloodstream here. About 8 of us were here Friday night. A lot of us did our first open air. I wanted to practice on whoever was in my range. If you passed by, you heard the Gospel. Imagine that, we were not even in church and people heard what they hardly ever hear or never hear at all; about their sin, their destination without repentence, salvation through Jesus Christ, justification, sanctification, holiness, mercy, and Grace.
This is the message they heard while waiting for the light to turn green. We had under 2 minutes to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ, Him crucified, why he was crucified, why God hates sin so much, where he will actually send people, to the lake that burns with fire.
Yes, in just a few minutes more people heard this great message than those that hear it within the church walls.
Church is a great place to learn about doctrine, theology, life applications within a Biblical worldview. Since sinners hate the Word of God, church is not the place to go if you are one.
Since the sinner usually hangs out at bars, strip clubs, fiesta gatherings, wine festivals and churches that don't preach the gospel, then someone needs to go out and proclaim what they need to know about Christ and His salvation.
If I get them ready, I might show what God's tolerence bears. Our open air for the novices was a bit shakey at best. Ok, a lot shakey.
And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
"And He ordered us to preach to the people, and solemnly to testify that this is the One who has been appointed by God as Judge of the living and the dead.
"And we preach to you the good news of the promise made to the fathers,
How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, "HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO BRING GOOD NEWS OF GOOD THINGS!"
For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, not in cleverness of speech, so that the cross of Christ would not be made void.
