    You need to give us the public link; otherwise only those who have a Dropbox account can download it.

    Great job brother! :thumbsup:

    The only thing I would've changed is it is not the book of 'Revelations', it's the book of 'Revelation.'

    God bless you brother.

    I dont. The call is to go out and preach the gospel to all creation (Mark 16:15).

    I did not have an outline, but just preached as the Holy Spirit led. Thank you for your comments. :)

    Hey Brother,

    Well done in a hostile environment! Reminded me of a modern-day John the Baptist, really!

    I will just post a few excerpts and then make a few comments:

    2:20 "If you wanna go to the lake of fire, that's where all the false converts are goin to!"

    3:50 (A kid passerby): "I love Jesus!"

    5:50 (A listener): "I'm not (guilty of breaking the ten commandments)."
    You reply: "Yes you are! Have you ever lied before? . . . ever stolen anything before? . . . ever looked after someone and lusted after him or her?"
    (A woman's response): "That's right and (apparently) F-you!"

    6:25 "Many in today's day and age preach easy believism gospel. They preach just come to Jesus as you are and do not change, and God will give you your best life now. That is a false gospel. . . . All who come to him must repent of their sin!"

    7:55 "If you have a strong dislike against someone, you have already committed murder against him or her! How many of us are guilty of that?"

    8:30 (A listener): "Thanks for makin' me feel guilty man. I wanted that." (laughter)

    9:10 "I'm not preachin easy believism gospel here. . . ."

    10:00 "God does not desire that you go to hell, nor do you want to go there."

    11:40 "He is the atoning sacrifice for the sins of the whole world."

    ---------

    You cited a lot of great Bible passages. Were these all from memory, or did you look up every one, or did you have some kinds of notes?

    My one (minor) suggestion would be to explain "repent" and "turn to Jesus" a little more, perhaps with examples of what that would look like to an average listener. Today's crowd really has no concept of what that means. Also, it's okay to make a Holy-Spirit-led outline and to tell some parables in modern vernacular.

    Sincerely,

    Jonathan C. Borland

    When you preach, do you tell them about your weekend you spent with the woman in Arkansas?

    I mean , afterall, how can you tell them they need to repent unless you havent?

    Thank you so much for your kind comments Jonathan. I had my NIV Study Bible while I was preaching so used it to read verses most of the time. However I also do have a number of verses memorized. Thanks for the suggestion yes this would be a good idea for my March nursing home sermon, where I intend to address the same subject. Thanks for taking those clips I appreciate it. I have more of my open air sermons if you want to listen.

    Thank you,


    John

    I think its foolish to joke about serious matters like evangelism.

    Bro, you'll find very few edifying or gracious posts from mandym. Thread to thread is the same thing, ridicule here, ridicule there. It's best to just ignore her (him?) comments.
