Slew of activity and an assortment of strange characters were on the surrounding sidewalk. A stocky male student wore a cape and carried a plastic/toy machine gun and short haired lesbian distributed invitations to “Zombies VS Humans.” They would interrupt and talk to the passerby about the upcoming event. Another short cropped hair female with a tank top challenged Brother Micah to play shoot a zombie. Micah declined and let them know his love for their souls was far more important than their game. Brother Micah referred them to the Bible passage ” And you hath he quickened, who were DEAD in TRESPASSES and SINS;” Ephesians 2:1.
I was inspired to preach on the urgency of students and prodigals to COME HOME to Christ! I preached a sarcastic sermon on the “Top 10 Reasons to Drink.” The homecoming event central theme is known for alcohol abuse and sports idolatry. University students and their lack of knowledge of the REAL JESUS of the HOLY BIBLE like to accuse Christ of being the bartender at the marriage of Galilee and Last Supper.
As Brother Micah preached a Jewish long haired male student dialoged for 30 minutes. He accepted the Torah, and did not want us to preach against homosexuality. We emphasized Moses preached and taught against homosexuality in Leviticus. A Jewess female student dressed in a long skirt, modest tee shirt and long hair inquired, “what are the scriptures used for the Roman’s road?”She was very unfamiliar with the New Testament.
Micah had a male student who attended a Christian High School ask, “if he knew anything about the Holy Spirit?” The student then said emphatically” it was 500 years after the New Testament had been given and mentioned.” Micah did an excellent job quoting the passage from Isaiah 63:10. It was excellent for the other Jewish and Jewess students to hear a passage from Isaiah one of their Prophets.
We saw familiar faces in the crowd. It is truly a blessing to have regulars attend the meeting as the Word of God continues to speak to them. A lust filled tank wearing male self proclaimed Christian who has attended ALL the open air meetings thus far. His service to God is the mission trips in Washington and other states he has taken with his youth group. This male hypocrite likes to expose his exercised physique and lifts up his shirt each time to show his abdomens. He is an example of a sure enough hypocrite as he cussed, hid behind bushes spewed sexual profanity. He is a big sin defender that insisted “we can’t STOP sinning.”
At the end of the meeting students took MANY specific sin tracts. The Gospel tracts are helpful for follow up. Brother Micah and I were grateful to God for another day to proclaim the Gospel and the 100 to 120 who attended the open air meeting.
