This is the moment police pulled an elderly Christian preacher off his podium and arrested him for making ‘homophobic statements’ – after supporters say he refused to stop reading from the Bible about how God wanted families to be headed by a ‘father and a mother’.
Let’s see now, we have vaccines, biometric passports, the New World Order, mandatory masking, there are so many rockets being fired off right now it’s hard to know where to look first. But in the midst of all this end times insanity, we need to remember there is a goal, there is a target that the opposition wants to reach. That goal is the hated gospel of the grace of God inside the pages of your King James Bible, and pity the man or woman who dares open their mouth to preach in the name of the Lord.
“But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them. And the gospel must first be published among all nations. But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.” Mark 13:9-11 (KJB)
We always knew this time would arrive, as we have watched the slow but unstoppable rise of the LGBTQ+ Movement and their relentless push to remove the bible from society and to bring in the doctrine of Antichrist. The man in our story today was arrested and released, but the day is coming where street preachers will be arrested and put to death for daring to preach the gospel of the grace of God. What should the reaction of the bible believer be? Get out on the streets where you live, lift up your voice and PREACH!!!! That’s what Paul did, and we should do no less.
“And now, behold, I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there: Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide me. But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.” Acts 20:22-24 (KJB)
Women heard shouting ‘this is a Christian country’ as the street preacher is led away in handcuffs by police
FROM THE DAILY MAIL UK: Two women can be heard shouting ‘this is a Christian country’ as two policemen lead the 71-year-old man away when he refused to stop addressing the crowd outside Uxbridge Station in West London. Police said they had received complaints the man had been making ‘allegedly homophobic comments’ and arrested him under the Public Order Act, which can be used under the vague proviso that someone is using ‘abusive or insulting words’ that cause ‘harm’ to someone else. He was later released without charge.
A statement posted to a Christian Facebook his supporters read: ‘Whilst he was preaching, he expounded the final verses of Genesis 1, declaring that God’s purpose in creating mankind was to set human beings in families, headed by a father and a mother, not by two fathers, or by two mothers.
‘The distinction within mankind of just two genders, male and female, made in the image of God, constitutes the essence of God’s created order.’
Earlier in the footage, filmed on Friday, two officers can be seen urging the man to step down from the footstool telling him: ‘You’re under arrest.’ The pastor repeatedly refuses, prompting both officers to take him by the hands and guide him down from the steps. A struggle then ensues as the older man appears to free himself from the police officers’ grip. Several onlookers, including an older woman and a barking dog jumping into the fray.
The two police officers then struggle to cuff the man as one tells him: ‘I don’t want you getting hurt.’ He is then marched away from the crowd by one of the cops as several onlookers can be seen with their mobile phones out. A woman behind the camera says: ‘For a man preaching about Christianity, look at how he’s ripping him.’
Pastor Peter Simpson, Minister of Penn Free Methodist Church in Buckinghamshire, who was preaching with Pastor Sherwood before the arrest, said: ‘Everything he said was bible based. He was not saying anything abusive; he is a Christian minister. There did not seem to be any recognition from the police that Christian ministers and such views exist.
‘If there was a Pride parade in Uxbridge, the police would support it even if Christians were offended.
‘You don’t have to be an evangelical Christian to be shocked by this. Anyone who cares about liberty should be concerned about what happened in Uxbridge. ‘This is about defending our Christian civilisation, or what is left of it. The belief in Genesis 1:27 is fundamental to Christian belief.
‘This arrest of a faithful minister for doing nothing other than declaring what the Bible teaches about one of the important moral issues of our time reveals a dangerous assault upon freedom of speech and, not least, upon the freedom of Christian pastors to declare in public all that the Bible teaches. The State has no right to designate that some parts of God’s word are no-go areas.
‘Whatever one’s personal views on homosexuality might be, it is surely pertinent to ask what kind of nation have we become that the minister of a Christian church is arrested for upholding in the public square the very truths which Her Majesty the Queen promised to uphold in her Coronation Oath in 1953, with a Bible in her hand?’
Andrea Williams, chief executive of the Christian Legal Centre, said: ‘Street preaching has a long and honoured history in the UK. In many ways it is symbolic of the kind of freedoms we have treasured in this nation. So to see a 75-year-old pastor arrested in such a manner for preaching the gospel in London is deeply concerning.
