FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 26, 2003
***GOD INVADES YBOR CITY! Ybor City is the nightclub district in Tampa,
Florida. It is equivalent to the French Quarter in New Orleans or Rush
Street in Chicago. Saturday night, September 27th, Liveprayer will bring
God to Ybor City in a bold and visible way. We have secured a vacant lot
right on the main drag where we will have a stage erected. At 11 p.m., we
will have over 2 hours of great Gospel music by a variety of artists and
choirs. At 1:30 a.m., I will share a special message geared to the app.
thirty thousand people that come to Ybor City every Saturday night searching
for alcohol, drugs, and illicit sex. I ask you to be praying for me and
that God will use this event to bring many people that come looking for a
party, to find an everlasting relationship with Jesus Christ.
PLEASE COMMIT TO FAST ONE MEAL FRIDAY OR SATURDAY AND SPEND THAT TIME IN PRAYER
FOR THIS OUTREACH. ALSO, I AM ASKING PEOPLE TO PRAY BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 11
P.M. AND 2 A.M. (EASTERN TIME) SATURDAY NIGHT INTO SUNDAY MORNING DURING THE
OUTREACH. THANK YOU FOR STANDING WITH ME AND I WILL HAVE A GREAT PRAISE REPORT
NEXT MONDAY OF ALL GOD DID THAT NIGHT IN YBOR CITY. IF ALL GOES WELL, I WILL
HAVE VIDEO CLIPS OF THE EVENT ON THE LIVEPRAYER.COM WEBSITE ONE DAY NEXT WEEK.
Judging others. This is a verse that many use
incorrectly, and I want to take a moment today to clarify what Jesus said when
He shared this great truth during the Sermon on the Mount. Because I have never
been afraid of calling sin exactly what it is when I share the TRUTH of God's
Word with you, I get several hundred emails daily from people telling me that I
have NO RIGHT JUDGING OTHERS. The fact is, what I do in the course of this
Devotional each day is NOT judge anyone, but simply expose people, events,and
issues in our society in the context of encouraging you in your daily
relationship with the Lord.
When I use the example of someone like an Eminem, I am NOT judging his heart,
God will do that. I simply point out his actions. It is HIS ACTIONS THAT JUDGE
HIM!!!!! I DON'T HAVE TO!!!! When I talk about the sinful choices of those who
engage in fornication or homosexual activity, I am NOT judging those who engage
in these practices. I simply point out what they do. It is THEIR ACTIONS THAT
JUDGE THEM. All I do is take what a person has DONE in the context of God's
Word says. THAT is our ultimate authority in ALL matters. IT IS GOD'S WORD
THAT JUDGES THEM!
What Jesus said in Matthew 7:1 is
very powerful. WE have no right to judge anyone since we ourselves are frail,
sinful people. We must be as concerned about the sin in OUR lives, as we are in
judging the sin in others. Having said that however, those who God has called
into spiritual leadership must NEVER, EVER, shy away from calling sin sin.
Those who commit acts of homosexuality or fornication are sinners. God said it,
I didn't. Eminem has chosen to sell out his life to the record corporations and
profit on putting out garbage to our kids. HE CHOSE TO DO THAT, I DIDN'T. He
has to stand accountable for his actions and his life. WHAT HE DOES JUDGES HIM,
Anyone that takes the time to read ALL of what I write each day, know that I ask
people to pray for those who are lost and without hope. I call people often to
PRAY FOR those who choose to engage in sinful sexual acts, whether it is
homosexual acts, acts of adultery, or fornication. I use examples of the real
world that we live in to drive home the point that I am making to YOU each day
in relationship to your personal walk with the Lord.
I love you and care about you so much. I am not nearly as concerned for my own
personal well being, as I am for your ETERNAL well being. THAT is why I do what
I do each day. I will NEVER be silenced. If Nickelodeon can allow the pro
homosexual community to tell our kids that homosexuality is an acceptable
choice, I will use my voice to say that it is a sin and a path of destruction!
If Eminem can have his garbage broadcast on MTV and other channels day and
night, I will use my voice to tell people that his "music" is straight from the
pits of hell, and there is only ONE ROAD to real peace!
Pleased know today that Jesus was very clear about his admonition to "not judge
others." But never take that to mean that we have to turn our heads to sin, and
not speak out about what GOD SAYS is wrong! We are living in the last days.
The war between TRUTH and LIE will become more pronounced.
Please pray for me daily as I get even more focused on using the Internet and
secular television to get the message of TRUTH to this lost and hurting world
that we live in. Those who know Christ, who lived through the lies, know that
HE is the ONLY WAY. I judge no one. Only God can do that. But the Bible
clearly says that "you will know a tree by the fruit that it bears."
THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH CALLING A ROTTEN APPLE....A ROTTEN APPLE! God will
judge ME if I am silent!!!
In His love and service, Your
friend and brother in Christ,
