Reflections On Preaching The Gospel Of The Grace Of God As We Start Our 7th Season Of Ministry On The Streets Of Saint Augustine Florida

As the NTEB Street Preaching Teams hits Year 7, I would like to share some reflections on ministry in general and on my calling from the Lord in particular.

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

At its height, on a typical Saturday afternoon, we would have between 15-23 people with us handing out tracts, witnessing to the lost, and a handful of dedicated men to preach the gospel of the grace of God.

Everything has a prime, a ‘heyday’ if you will, where times and events of a thing seem to reach an intense crezendo, hold that position for awhile, and then either level off or cease to exist altogether. The NTEB Street Preaching Team had an awesome heyday from 2012 to about 2015, it was amazing. So for just a few minutes today, I would like to share some reflections on ministry in general, and on my calling from the Lord in particular. I hope this will help you in your calling as well.

“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 20:24 (KJV)

The Lord dealt with me about street preaching for the better part of a year before I finally stepped out in faith on March 24th, 2012, on the southwest corner of the intersection of Saint George and Hypolita streets in downtown Saint Augustine, Florida. That first time was amazing, and the Lord graciously used events that happened that day to confirm my calling. When I shared the story of that first time, to my surprise, people started asking me if they could do it with me, and the NTEB Street Preaching team was born.

At its height, on a typical Saturday afternoon, we would have between 15-23 people with us handing out tracts, witnessing to the lost, and a handful of dedicated men to preach the gospel of the grace of God. On a good day we would hand out a minimum of 1,200 tracts, many times twice that amount, and we would get to preach in the hearing of literally thousands of people. Those of you who have walked down Saint George street on a summer day know exactly what I’m talking about.

Over the years, 20 people that we know of bowed their heads and prayed to receive God’s free gift of salvation in Jesus Christ. That’s 3.33 people every year who prayed to be saved, I think that’s pretty good. As we start year 7 of this ministry, I again asked myself why I keep doing it. This is what I came up with.

  • BECAUSE HELL IS REAL: Every day, roughly 151,600 people will die for whatever reason and leave this life for the next one. Sadly, the majority of those people will launch out into eternity with no Saviour to pay for their sins. That means they must pay for their own sins themselves. “And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.” Luke 16:23 (KJV). Street preaching is the biblical means by which the gospel of the grace of God is delivered to the average person out in the world. “And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.” Luke 14:23 (KJV). All the apostles including Paul were street preachers, as also was Jesus.

Now maybe you were expecting a lot more bullet points, and honestly, I was as well. But when I thought about it, that one point I listed is really the only reason you need to have in order to do street ministry. All believers are called of God to go out and share the gospel with the lost and dying they come into contact with.

This Is What Street Preaching Looks Like

This video was made around 2016, and gives you a real good idea what old-fashioned street preaching is all about. 

I remember a conversation I had with one of my street preachers, Bro. Stephen, about 5 years ago on a Saturday afternoon. We have a huge crowd of people working with us that day, lost people were getting saved, and thousands of tracts were being handed out while men preached. It was a great day. Bro. Stephen looked around at all the happy commotion, and asked me a question that remains with me to this day. He said “look at all these people that are with us, it’s great, isn’t it? But let me ask you this. If tomorrow it was just you, would you still do it?”

Like a bomb those words hit my brain. What a great question. Bro. Stephen is like that, he has a way with words that get right to the point. So I took a moment before answering, and then I said “yes, I absolutely would still do it if it was just me”. Today out on the street, the first day of Season 7 of the NTEB Street Team, and guess what? It was just me. And I loved it.

THE ORIGINAL 2012 ‘CORE 4’ – FROM LEFT WE HAVE BRO. JIMMY, BRO. STEPHEN, BRO. CRAIG AND ME

Now I fully expect to soon be joined by others this season, I have never had a season completely alone. But the point is that my ministry does not exist in the abundance of the people who do it with me. It’s great when God puts on the hearts of others to come join me, but guess what? God called me to do it, with or without a big group to help me.

Now let me ask you this.

What has God called you to do? If you are alive, breathing and born again, you qualify. The bible already shows you God’s call on the life of all saved believers, and in case you’ve forgotten it, here it is again for you to consider:

“I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.” 2 Timothy 4:1,2 (KJV)

When Saul was knocked off his high horse by Jesus Christ, the very first words out of his mouth were “Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?”

“And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.” Acts 9:6 (KJV)

Pray for me and this ministry, that it would not just simply exist but that we would still see souls saved and the gospel preached in truth and in power. And when you have done that, go before the Lord and ask Him what He would have you to do to reach the lost. You can start by clicking on the links below to order your box of our street preacher tested gospel tracts.

Time is short, people, and the Enemy is advancing rapidly. Don’t spend these last days on the sidelines. Get in the game.

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Our brand new NTEB ‘Wall Witness’ Poster Series will get your end times motor running with these sure-fire conversation starters!

When our Mudflower team produced the original ‘days of Noah’ graphic for use in the bookstore as a display background for our ‘Angels & Aliens’ collection from end times author Jeffrey Mardis, people immediately started asking if we could make it available as a poster. Now that was a great idea, and hey, why stop with just one? Presenting the NTEB Wall Witness Poster Series that will remind you and your born again friends of the precious promises of God, and get the lost people in your life thinking about what’s coming to pass shortly.

“For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.” Luke 21:22 (KJB)

We designed three posters that we are selling individually, and as a set with a discount. The first is the classic OG NTEB chaotic end times depiction from our Street Preacher gospel tracts, a design recognized around the world. The second is Flight #777 on Titus213 Airlines, our ‘blessed hope’ of the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church. And the third one is the menacing Days of Noah giant in a boiling sea as UFOs swirl all around. Total visual impact. We are excited to present them to you, and dearly hope you will use them to witness in your home, at work, or wherever you can hang a poster.

The war is REAL, the battle HOT, and the time is SHORTTO THE FIGHT!!

Witnesses To The Massive 7.8 Earthquake In Turkey Remarked That ‘It Was Like The Apocalypse’ As Death Toll Now Passes 3,700 Souls And Rising

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

A huge earthquake in Turkey and Syria registering 7.8 on the Richter Scale has already killed 3,700 souls, injuring countless thousands more, was like ‘watching the apocalypse’.

This week is off to a gangbusters start from a prophecy perspective, with a once in a generation earthquake rocking Turkey and Syria, open worship of Satan at the Grammys sponsored by Pfizer, as well as minor earthquakes in New York and Georgia. Russia is preparing to unleash a 500,000 soldier contingent on Ukraine, and Chinese spy balloons fly over America with impunity. Things get much hotter and it might be time for a little ’23 skidoo’, and wouldn’t that be great? In the meantime, here we are at the beginning of sorrows.

“And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Matthew 24:6-8 (KJB)

One of the missionaries on our prayer list is LuAnn from Sarasota who ministers to the Muslims in Turkey. She reported this morning that “Yes thank God I’m all right.  I’m living in Istanbul and this horrendous earthquake happened in the southeast of Turkey a few hours away from me. But it is turning into quite a disaster for the nation.  Thank you for your prayers and your concern. We have been told to restock our “earthquake bag” in case we too become affected. We just learned Pastor Hakan and his wife in Anitoch went to be with the Lord , leaving behind a young son. We have so few Turkish Pastors. Tragic” Please continue to pray for LuAnn and her efforts in Turkey, that the Lord would continue to keep her safe and give her and her team much fruit for His Kingdom. And pray for the untold tens of thousands of souls devastated by this earthquake.

Major earthquake kills 3,700 in Turkey and Syria, weather hits survivors

FROM YAHOO NEWS: A huge earthquake killed more than 3,700 people across a swathe of Turkey and northwest Syria on Monday, with freezing winter weather adding to the plight of the thousands left injured or homeless and hampering efforts to find survivors.

The magnitude 7.8 quake brought down whole apartment blocks in Turkish cities and piled more devastation on millions of Syrians displaced by years of war. It struck before sunrise in harsh weather and was followed in the early afternoon by another large quake.

In Diyarbakir in southeast Turkey, a woman speaking next to the wreckage of the seven-storey block where she lived said: “We were shaken like a cradle. There were nine of us at home. Two sons of mine are still in the rubble, I’m waiting for them.” She was nursing a broken arm and had injuries to her face.

“It was like the apocalypse,” said Abdul Salam al-Mahmoud, a Syrian in the northern town of Atareb. “It’s bitterly cold and there’s heavy rain, and people need saving.”

The earthquake was the biggest recorded worldwide by the U.S. Geological Survey since a tremor in the remote South Atlantic in August 2021.

In Turkey, the death toll stood at 2,316, the Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD) said, making it the country’s deadliest earthquake since a tremor of similar magnitude in 1999 devastated the heavily populated eastern Marmara Sea region near Istanbul, killing more than 17,000.

A 7.8 magnitude earthquake killed over 2,300 people in Turkey and Syria early Monday morning. The ‘apocalypse’ quake occurred early in the morning when most people were sleeping or indoors.

The 2023 Grammys Call On Satan During Performance Of ‘Unholy’ Then Immediately Cut To A ‘Brought To You By Pfizer’ Promo, Awake Yet?

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Last night, the 2023 Grammys in 5 minutes showed you graphically how close to the end we truly are. Satan, brought to you by Pfizer. Just like we’ve been telling you.

If you were looking for a theme song wrapped in an iconic moment to truly symbolize what it means to be here on Day 1,057 of 15 Days To Flatten The Curve, the 2023 Grammys last night was just the ticket. You had LGBTQ+ transgenders, Satan, women in cages being beaten with whips, all while singing a song called ‘Unholy’. And if that wasn’t enough, the moment this demonic mess was done, they cut to a ‘brought to you by Pfizer’ promo, tying the two in nice and neatly together. There is nothing more you need to know about the Great Reset, the pandemic, gain of function and all the rest of that junk than that. But don’t take my word for it, watch the video below and see for yourself.

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32 (KJB)

In 5 minutes last night, the Grammys showed you a visual production of just about everything we’ve been warning you about since it all began. How many times have you heard me tell you on the Podcast about the ‘rising spirit of Antichrist’? It rose over the Grammys last night, and broadcast to a hundred million people. How many times have you heard me expose the evils of Pfizer and Big Pharma? Pfizer sponsored that satanic moment. People, if you can’t see where we are on the end times timeline by now, if you can’t see that everything we’ve been warning you about is happening right in front of your face, then I don’t know what to tell you. Obviously we will be discussing this in detail on the Podcast today so please join us. Like we’ve always said NTEB’ers are some of the most well-informed people on the face of the earth regarding the end times, and last night the 2023 Grammys proved that…TO THE FIGHT!!!

2023 Grammys Go ‘Full Satan’ With Performance Of ‘Unholy’

FROM VARIETY: Sam Smith just outdid their recent “Saturday Night Live” performance with “Unholy” collaborator Kim Petras in a horror movie-inspired performance of the smash hit. Smith started the song in red leather, surround a fleet of dancers that evoked Samara from “The Ring,” before cutting to Petras dancing in a cage, flanked by some dominatrices wearing satanic headgear. Smith also donned a satanic top hat, as huge flames heated up the stage.

Smith and Petras won the Grammy for best pop duo/group performance earlier in the evening, and Petras gave an emotional speech.

“Sam graciously wanted me to accept this award because I’m the first transgender woman to win this award,” she said, to cheers and many of the musicians in the crowd giving her a standing ovation. “I just wan to thank all of the incredible transgender legends before me who kicked these doors open before me so I could be here tonight. Sophie, my friend who passed away two years ago, who told me this would happen and always believed in me. Thank you so much for you inspiration, Sophie. I adore you, and your inspiration will forever be in my music.”

When asked about the fiery performance backstage, Petras said it was inspired by not feeling accepted by religion.

“I think a lot of people, honestly, have kind of labeled what I stand for and what Sam stands for as religiously not cool, and I personally grew up wondering about religion and wanting to be a part of it but slowly realizing it didn’t want me to be a part of it,” she said. “So it’s a take on not being able to choose religion. And not being able to live the way that people might want you to live, because as a trans person I’m already not kind of wanted in religion. So we were doing a take on that and I was kind of hellkeeper Kim.” READ MORE
