Since our last newsletter, we have been busy and along with our usual street outreach and Patrick's research and preparation into his articles, James finally completed his verse-by-verse Bible study on Matthew's Gospel. Initially four weeks were scheduled in to undertake this mammoth project, but with other commitments and interests, not to mention one microphone breaking, and another quickly needed, this ended up taking 12 weeks.
At just shy of 12 hours long, Matthew's Gospel is our longest Bible study to date, and anyone wishing to download the entire study on MP3, can do so here.
The chapter sections in MP3 can also be downloaded below:
Our thank you video "Come, Lord Jesus" was recorded in a new high definition format, but for some reason it failed to upload properly to YouTube, so anyone wishing to view it like it was initially produced to look like, can do so here.
With the summer finally reaching the UK, we have just taken order of some 3,000 tracts. We pray the Lord will bless these and hope many seeds will be planted.
THE IMPERATIVENESS OF STREET EVANGELISM
videos, writing articles, even planning trips away are all-necessary and certainly
well received among the saved, but sharing the pure and undiluted gospel of Christ,
with an unsaved party, face to face, is absolutely priceless.
You see, experience has often shown me that the vast amount of people that I have been privileged to witness to, have never actually heard the correct gospel, Bible prophecy and the overwhelming evidence for God's word, so when we pound the streets, every so often, God gives us some incredible people to share Jesus with!
And before one starts to panic about not being "educated enough," i.e., needing to
have a PHD in theology, speak Greek or Hebrew to pass out tracts or just share ones
testimony, please remember that all of the Apostles were simple average men, many
with their own flaws, and yet in spite of this, God still called them and equipped
them, so why not you?!?
PATRICK CAUTIONS MAN AGAINST SPIRITUALISM
George, whose son recently died, was understandably still upset about the sudden loss of his son. After noticing sister Tantri had given him a tract, Patrick approached him and offered him comfort in Jesus. However, it then turned out that this elderly man had been encouraged to consult a medium, "to make contact with his late son."
As he seemed tempted to do this, Patrick warned him not to even consider this but seek the Lord instead and of course get saved.
"Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
And of some have compassion, making a difference...." (Jude 21,22)
DISCUSSION WITH A DARWINIST
A man stopped, took one of my tracts, walked a few yards, tentatively reading it, paused, turned around and walked back to me. The next 20 minutes or so, allowed me to speak to this very friendly and open-minded scientist about the things of God.
It transpired that he accepted "the philosophy of Christ" (like so many "free-thinkers" do) but had terrible trouble actually applying the doctrine of Christ to his daily life.
As he wasn't self-righteous per se nor argumentative, this gave me the opportunity to take a more casual and laid-back approach, while constantly highlighting the absolute sinlessness of Christ to mans sinful nature, i.e., the need to believe and receive Jesus as our only Saviour and remedy to sin, along with sharing my own testimony too.
Bit by bit, his arguments and objections, for use of a better word concerning the reliability of Scripture, Heaven and Hell, etc, were softly repelled from the word of God, but I had one request for him: would he be prepared to go home, open his old dusty Bible and commence reading the Gospel of John? A few seconds passed before he said, "Yes, I will."
And with that honest acknowledgement, I thanked him, shock his hand and off he went on his way.
"What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops" (Matt. 10:27)
Sisters Tantri, Vanessa and their children joined
us for a very successful open-air outreach, some great one-on-one witnessing and over
1000 tracts distributed.
(Even some of the children gave out tracts for the
very first time.)

Tantri, only to have James called over to help with some of her questions. Shortly
afterwards, her friend joined in and a rather in-depth conversation took place, which
graciously ended on a friendly note.

Conti And Ley: Hitler's Doctors Of Death Who Beat The Rap
Thank you so much for your ministry, I cannot express enough the blessings and support the Lord has brought through it. I have just finished going along with your Bible study of Matthew, with my Bible open I might add, I cannot thank you enough, great job! I just want to discuss and talk with you for hours on that particular study, Amen will have to suffice. I thank the Lord for your service and ministry, love you brother, many, many blessings to you and all those with you in our precious Lord. I hope you, your Dad and family and those serving with you are well, keeping you all in my heart and prayers.
I have come across your teachings/warning messages about today's Christian Word of Faith Ministry's & I have to thank you for all the information that you have provided because the Holy Spirit has opened my eyes to see the truth behind the scriptures. I was following some of the Word of Faith teachings from some of the well-known American Ministry's that are televised nationally. I wasn't into their teachings for so long only about a year & had to get out of the Assemblies of God/Pentecostal church that I was attending about a few months ago because I knew that something was not right there. Just about a month ago, the Lord started to open my eyes about these well known pastors & preachers that are on national Christian television & that they are not following biblical truth in their teachings. Your teachings have helped me to research and study scriptures over and over only to be convinced that I was on a deception path with all these teachings. I have a passion for the Lord and a passion to love Him in Spirit and Truth. I am still learning and hope to see more of your teachings that are based on Bible truth. I thank you for all the great work that you are doing to save people because your teachings have helped me & set me free from living in a false gospel.
Thank you so much for your videos, audio & articles..I'm truly grateful for truth..and for finding your ministry..which encouraged me to search the scriptures & check things out with the word of God.. you (well Lord Jesus working in you - Heb 13:21) have helped me overcome alot of confusion and spiritual smog, you have helped me find my way back again to my Humble and Faithful Saviour. Please pray for me to grow up into Him in all things (as in Ephesians 4:13-15) Please continue with good works!
I'd like to encourage you to make more Bible study videos. I appreciate them because I've been floundering for awhile. As a weaker sheep, I see the value in fellowship...something I need but can't seem to find, truly, in churches. So, this is the closest I can get to it, spending time listening to someone who's pure in heart. Thank you and take care.
Dear Brothers, I have followed your ministry for a few years now and appreciate all you do for Christ. I too have a Roman Catholic background including Catholic schooling but now I am born again. Your videos have blessed me in my own growth with the Lord, especially the vere-by-verse studies and the last one entitled, "The Battle." Keep up the good work in Jesus! I also wanted to let you know, as a college student, I will be studying in Oxford this autumn. I will be looking for a church/gathering of believers. I ask that you pray that our Lord give me safe travels, blessing in finding both a church and believing friends once I arrive. Again thank you for this ministry.
Sweet August doth appear,
Birthday wishes to my precious granddaughter,
