If someone has cancer or some other disease that is affecting a specific body part or area, people will seek a doctor to cut it off or cut it out.
Why do people not treat sin the same way? The Bible says:
So if your hand or foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It’s better to enter eternal life with only one hand or one foot than to be thrown into eternal fire with both of your hands and feet. -Matthew 18:8
I am not suggesting people cut off their body parts who are sinning. I sure don’t suggest cutting anything out or off in most cases of disease.
Why do so many run to get rid of their disease but they don’t have that same passion to get rid of their sin?
People need to fear God and a good example I can give that many people will understand is people get serious about their sin. Understand what sin is and repent!
We went out preaching tonight and it was like a Bible study for drunkards. Kids don’t drink!
Son of man, I have appointed you as a watchman for Israel. Whenever you receive a message from me, warn people immediately. -Ezekiel 3:17
Why do I have such a desire to get the message of Yeshua (Jesus) out to the world?
I can give you a long list of reasons but listen to this warning…
If I warn the wicked, saying, “You are under the penalty of death, but you fail to deliver the warning, they will die in their sins. And I will hold you responsible for their deaths. -Ezekiel 3:18
As Believers, we should all have a passion and desire to let everyone know Yeshua (Jesus) died so they can have a second chance at life, a fresh start to be born-again!
If you warn them and they refuse to repent and keep on sinning, they will die in their sins. But you will have saved yourself because you obeyed me.
Every person is presented with a chance to repent. Who will answer that call? Sadly, most people won’t. Even during the time the Scriptures where written, people refused.
Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!
Our wonderful Creator has made himself known to everyone (Romans 1:20) but people still refused (Romans 1:21).
When we reject and forget about Our Creator we will perish. (Hos 6:4)
I know that sounds like a hard message, but it is time we listened to the watchman sent before us and repent or perish.
Some friends and I went to our favorite spot to do some open-air preaching. Some people didn’t like hearing the truth but we gave it to them anyway.
Why I Street Preach
And then he told them,”Go into the world and preach the good news to everyone.” -Mark 16:15
I had been teaching healthy eating to people in the new age movement for a long time before I was saved. Once I became a Believer, I started sharing to people about the Bible and Yeshua (Jesus). How can I not?
I remember at one speaking engagement, I began to share the Gospel message to a crowd of unbelievers at a health festival. After the event, a Christian friend who had been listening to my message told me that it takes a lot of courage to speak the gospel in front of a bunch of nonbelievers.
I thought, what is he talking about courage? This is what I am supposed to be doing, sharing the good news with the world!
This has become a goal for me. Some people share the message one-on-one while others share the gospel just in the way they act. Both of these are great and I do that, but I have a burning desire to take this message to as many people as possible as quick as possible because I know time is running out.
I was visiting New York City (my hometown) one afternoon. I was in a popular local park and saw a street preacher. Up to this point I was never convinced that this was a good way to teach people about Yeshua.
As I watched this young man share scripture verses, I saw the demons in people come out and try to stop him, but he kept going.
The thing that impressed me the most was how the people with the demons in them stayed near him, some yelling at him, some doing their best to distract him. Anything they could do to get him to stop preaching, but he kept repeating scripture, and they were hearing it!
That was the most amazing discovering I made that day. These demon-possessed people could not leave the listening area around this man preaching the word of Our Creator.
No, they weren’t getting on their knees and giving their life to Yeshua, but they were hearing scripture.
I started to remember a time many years earlier when I heard a street preacher while riding the subway in NYC. I remember thinking to myself at the time, “This man is crazy.” But all these years later I remembered him and exactly what he was saying about Yeshua (Jesus). I even recall his voice and how he looked.
As confirmation that street preaching works, I was recently watching a YouTube video of a street preacher and someone approached him and said something like, “You’re just turning people off to the gospel and no one gets saved by this approach!” The street preacher responded by saying, “Sir, by me hearing a street preacher, that is exactly how I got saved, so it does work.”
Finally, I leave you with the story of famous Christian preacher and author, A.W. Tozer. As a young man, he was on his way home from work when he overheard a street preacher say, “If you don’t know how to be saved… just call on God, saying, ‘Lord, be merciful to me a sinner.” Upon returning home, he climbed into the attic and heeded the preacher’s advice.
Folks, you may see many people turned off by street preachers. The demons don’t want to hear the word! But any chance to share the gospel with the world works!
Yet preaching the Good News is not something I can boast about. I am compelled by our Creator Yahweh to do it. How terrible for me if I didn’t preach the good news!
-1 Corinthians 9:16
Our Creator Hates The Sin and The Sinner
If I stand on a corner with a sign saying something like, “God Hates Sin!” I don’t think too many people would get upset.
Non-believers of the Bible don’t understand what “sin” is and believe it is a Christian thing for Christian people.
You may be surprised, but most Christians don’t even understand what sin is and those who do are not affected personally by this sign because it is not about a person, but an action.
They may even agree with the sign because they believe in the unbiblical saying “God hates the sin, not the sinner.”
Did you know that saying is nowhere in the Bible and Mahatma Gandhi actually made that saying famous in a 1929 autobiography.
According to the Bible, the definition of sin is actually transgression of God’s commandments (1 John 3:4) and Our Creator hates the sinner along with the sin. (Psalm 5:5, Psalm 11:5)
Now, if I stood on a corner with a sign that said something like, “God Hates Sinners!” it would surely get more of a reaction from people because now you are not only talking about an action, but a person.
Still, there are those who are clueless to what sin is and they would not give the sign much thought.
If I actually named the sin, all people, including Christians, would show a really negative response, especially if it is a sin they are guilty of.
For example, a sign saying, “God hates people who murder babies!” or “God hates Homosexuals!” would surely get more attention than “God Hates Sin!”
People need to be educated and we must stop sugar coating the truth! Learn what sin is and understand, God hates sinners and sinners are not getting into the kingdom.
Repent and sin no more!
