Sharing Jesus On The Street

Met a young guy sitting on a bench today who looked familiar. He wasn’t homelesss or an addict, but he had seen me around and was happy to chat.   a park bench

Although not a religious person, he was happy to listen as I shared about God, Jesus and how we need to have our mobile phone already switched on. I told him that God takes the initiative, dialling our number, so if we don’t have our mobile on we’ll never hear God’s approach when He calls. Afterwards I thanked him for being very gracious and listening to what I had to say.

The Gospel Isn’t Supposed To Make You Feel Good

I came across this blog post today and just had to quote it:

(source: http://theviolenttakeitbyforce.blogspot.com/)

“1. The Gospel was never intended to build anyone up.

Luk 13:3 No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish

2.The Gospel builds up Christ and pushes man down

Act 20:24 But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.

Rom 3:10 as it is written: “None is righteous, no, not one;
Rom 3:11 no one understands; no one seeks for God.
Rom 3:12 All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.”
Rom 3:13 “Their throat is an open grave; they use their tongues to deceive.” “The venom of asps is under their lips.”

3. The Gospel is supposed to breed fear to the lost.

2Co 7:10 For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death.

Mat 10:28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

4. Jesus the God man came and died humiliated on a criminals cross. Hit and spit on and treated worse than any of us. Somehow people expect the Gospel to be a self esteem builder. That’s not the True Gospel. What it is, is an Americanized lily scented gushy gospel that damns many people to hell.

Man will not repent to a God they do not fear.
There is hope”

My First Healing Encounter

My Initial Testimony. In 2009 I downloaded the four Flash files from the Elijah Challenge Basic Training course. What follows is my first attempt at putting the training into practice!

A couple of weeks later I was working as a volunteer in a Christian Food Bank in my home town.Trolley

A Muslim man came in with his voucher for free food. A practising Muslim, he told me he went to the Mosque five times every day. While he was waiting for his food I learned that he had suffered from pain in his legs and feet for many years, in fact since childhood. I talked to him about Jesus, whom he knew of as “Isa” the prophet and we talked about the crucifixion and what it meant. I explained that for Christians Jesus is God the Son, and that He has been given all power and authority by God, the Father. We then discussed other aspects of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection.

I asked if he was suffering pain at the moment. “Yes”, he said, “my left leg”.
I asked “Would you be agreeable for me to pray for your leg,to get Jesus to take away the pain?”
He agreed, so I explained I would speak to the pain, and command it to go in Jesus’ name. I laid hands on both knees (for good measure) and, using Jesus’ authority, I spoke to the pain and commanded it to go. After doing this for 20 seconds or so, I asked : “how does it feel?” He replied: “it feels warm”.
Taking this as an encouragement, I again spoke to the pain in Jesus’ name for about another 20 seconds. This time I said “stand up and walk about and tell me how it feels”. This time he said: “it feels numb”.

Taking this as another encouraging sign, I again spoke to the pain, as before, for about half a minute. I again asked him to walk about and asked: “”how is it?” This time he said: “the pain has gone”.

I emphasized that Jesus (Isa) was the healer and that he should thank him for taking the pain away. He said he would. I gave him a tract to take away that explained all about who Jesus is and what he has done done for us.
None of the Christians present in the Food Bank that day had any kind of healing gift or ministry. The only one present who could heal was Jesus and He did. So He gets all the glory – thank you Lord!”
