The last sure sign of the Lord's return is street preaching - massive street preaching. Jesus said in Mt 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. In all the world means that it will be preached in the cities, suburbs, country, and on the oceans.

In the last 4-5 years, the Lord has be raising up THOUSANDS of preachers all over the world. They come from every denomination, every sect, and the independents too. They all have a similar story. They believe God has commanded them to preach.

I was at the NCAA finals in Atlanta in 2007, and to my great joy and surprise, there must have been 40 preachers surrounding the colliseum. They represented a cross section of Christianity. One had to take a number if one wanted to preach that night!

This has never happened before in the history of the church. There has always been the few preaching here and there, but never before has there been THOUSANDS at once. Each one testifying to God's direct leading to preach.

Jesus is doing a new work in our times, and it will usher in the Kingdom of God. In the verse above, after the gospel is preached in all the world, the end comes. It is the preaching that ushers in the Kingdom.

The church needs to know that they must not oppose what Jesus is doing in this day. God's wisdom is there, but not often seen. The focus of these discussions is to prepare the church for what God is doing, to instruct Christians on what God is doing and why.

Most people do not understand street preaching. They see a tumult and think that that can't possibly be of God. But they fail to remember that often Jesus preached and riots ensued. Three times the crowds tried to kill him before they succeeded. Many times when the apostles preached there were riots, arrests, and beatings. The tumult is the very thing through which the Lord works.

Remember this: 1Co 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

I like to comment on articles that have been posted but not yet commented on. The thing about Street preaching would to me be like sowing the seed on stoney ground. I joined Team Sarah because of what I saw in her, I really would rather sow seed on good ground. I don't mean to disagree but that just seems to be a part of life, why take a big chance when there might be a better spot.
Dear Gary,
It isn't an issue of either/or. Jesus instituted street preaching in Matthew 10, and again in Matther 24 for a purpose. That purpose is not simply sowing seed on good ground. It is to sow seed on all ground. Jesus said in Mt 24:14 "And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come."

In order for the judgment to be righteous, every man must hear and be given the choice. If a man chooses to reject, that is his choice. In that case the preaching was for a witness against him.

One of the goals I have in the threads about street preaching is to make the church aware that it is street preaching that brings the Lord back. It is street preaching that brings in the Kingdom of God.

City settles with second street preacher

Wow! This TV news item was great. It was refreshing to see a TV station fairly report on street preaching. If someone is not a Christian, it is often hard to give a fair report.

We have experienced the power of street preaching. Often people get angry. Often a crowd will see unruly and seem that they are not listening. What we have seen is that afterward, people ask questions. This is especially true of the 'hecklers' -- they are often the ones asking the most sincere questions afterward! Thanks for the link, Bro!

I'd like to street preach, but I don't think people would take my big yellow face seriouly. I think I am ethnically challenged.
Well Pappy,
I have a face that looks like someone set it on fire and then stamped it out with an ice pick. I was preaching at CSU in Fort Collins, CO, and one student blurted out, "Is that your face or did your neck throw up?" I had to stop preaching becasue I was laughing so hard.

Your face would be very welcome. Would you be interested in coming to Penn State for a day of instruction and a chance to preach?

Here is an article from February 19th concerning something in Kingdom's neighborhood - Elmira, NY. Julian Raven wasn't even preaching, but was arrested for PRAYING!

Article

The street preaching ministry, established by Jesus in Matthew chapter 10, and commanded in Mark 16:15, has lain dormant for close to 1800 years. With some notable exceptions down through the years (John and Charles Wesley, Methodist circuit riders) the church has shied away from following Jesus to His highest calling. I believe the reason is because picking up his cross and proclaiming the coming Kingdom of God is the most costly thing you can do. Jesus promised persecution, arrests, beatings, betrayal by parents and children, hatred, and death.

Instinctively mankind knows that by doing what John the Baptist and Jesus did will result in what happened to them. Very few in the church are willing to actually lay their lives on the line for Him who died for them. But the day of His return is drawing nigh. Over the last several years, God has raised up thousands of preachers all around the world. Thousands, people, from all across the board denominationally speaking. He Himself is preparing the world for His return.

Mt 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

By His own words, the phenomenon that we are seeing, the tsunami of street preachers, is the last thing that happens before His return.

But because the street preaching ministry has lain dormant for so long, the church is completely in the dark as to what is going on. It is my growing burden to instruct the church as a whole what the ministry is supposed to do, how it does it, and why.

Join me, please, and help me get this message out to the church. It is the street preaching itself that brings on the tribulation. It is the tribulation that prepares the bride for her husband. It is the street preaching that brings the Lord back.

We are there now folks. Let us not shy away from what has to be done.

I just want to say, Thank You Bro, for starting this thread. I am looking forward to hearing more things that are in the news!
I was in touch with a Christian Journalist who was being forced to flee his own country because he stood up to the sodomites. Brazillian prosecutors what to find him and throw him in jail for saying that homosexuality is sin.

Julio,
I just want to encourage you in your fight. Stand fast and God will ultimately vindicate you. Fold and you will sink into obscurity. I have been preaching against homosexualtiy for many years, since 1977, and the message must continue to go forward. I think things will continue to worsen for a while (at least here in the US), but in the end we will prevail.

Bro Cope Open Air Evangelist

Thank you very much, brother, for your encouragement.

Right now, I am packing our things to leave Brazil. Federal prosecutors are after me for "homophobia". I will be in another South American country. Many years ago God had told me that a day would come when I would be persecuted. In this time, I would flee from a city to another, from a country to another. This day began for me some three years ago, when I began, with my wife and our little children, to flee from one city and seek refuge in another city. And now I am leaving Brazil, but not leaving my Christian responsibility for Brazil.

I covet your prayers.
Julio

Here is a YouTube video made by one of the atheists at Penn State about the preaching activity that is going on. It is well done and relatively unbiased.
