Vision: On The Streets
A few days ago I encountered some young adults evangelizing on a busy street intersection in our city. A city in Canada with a high crime rate and one in dire need of evangelism. A couple of days later I saw in the spirit the same street intersection. Suddenly, two individuals were shown coming towards the Evangelist – and that is how the vision ended.
It is apparent to me that the vision was shown to send words of encouragement to those who preach the Gospel on the streets; who go to places that not too many dare to go; who open themselves up to the ridicule and the mocking of unbelievers including Believers alike; who even put their lives at risk
I encourage all ‘who are genuinely called‘ to fulfill this office to keep on keeping on despite the harsh criticism and heckling. Satan wants to take you out so be clever of his subtle ruses and devices. Be ready to preach the Good News and the Gospel of the Kingdom in season and out of season. Reprove, rebuke and exhort with patience. Always prudently assess the situation to avoid harm. Remain peaceful and take care not to provoke in unrighteousness or self-righteousness. Some will come against you but, praise GOD, some will come seeking you!!
Paul’s Instructions to Timothy
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 (The Gospel of Truth) be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. (2 Tim. 4:1-5)
As for the rest of us – and as the Spirit moves you – give the horn an encouraging honk while driving by; pray for these Street Evangelists; donate an offering and/or thank them for their service to the Lord. Your support will be uplifting and appreciated. As the saying goes, we are all into this thing together. Most definitely!
Keep the Faith. GOD bless you richly. I pray that HIS guidance leads you and that HIS angelic army surrounds you.
