2012 Royal Agricultural Show – Day 2

This morning brother Lungisa Zondi and I arrived at the main entrance at Gate 2 about twenty-to-nine, while the early crowd was already queuing quiet a distance. When we parked the vehicle and were making our way to our preaching spot two vehicles met with an accident at an intersection. Slight damage to both vehicles, possibly some damaged pride, but thankfully no injuries; but this allowed an early morning transition into the handing out of Gospel Tracts and the preaching of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. I related to the two occupants waking up this morning not thinking that they would have an accident today, which also is what most people do not think about that they too could meet with death when they least expect it. So, “Are You Ready? …..”

Lungisa pointed out later, after I preached to the long, long line of people and gave those willing to take tracts, by zooming in on one of the pictures that a women that took a tract from me was one of the drivers of the vehicles that had the collision and I had said to her, “What if you die today?” There is no ways I could have known who the second party was, as I had handed a tract to the one lady and then hurried away to the queuing people and never noticed the second party – this could only have been the ordering of our footsteps by God Almighty! What are the chances of any person doing that? We rejoice in God’s Ways.

We also participated in the ‘Project Ezra’ Sermon on the Mount Saturday reading of Matthew 5-7, which became the standard of the rest of the day with brother Lungisa reading large portions of Scripture during the hours that followed. This was a truly blessed time of Preaching the Word.

Shortly before 11am the Show officials closed a perimeter gate that we stand by to prevent further access by the people arriving as the entrance price would be increased from R45.00 to R60.00 to compensate for the music concert starting at 5pm. Lungisa and I thanked our Father as this allowed a backed up queuing of people on the sidewalk for about 200 meters and an opportunity to hand out Gospel Tracts, and preach to the line of people. And yes, in this mass of people there had to be an atheist that showed his foolishness of not believing that there is a God – he proved Psalm 14:1 to be correct!

This was yet another wonderful God glorifying day of presenting the Gospel of Truth and pointing people to our Lord Jesus Christ. Many heard, many received the Word of God and many are without excuse – in fact they had no excuse before they even arrived there today (see Romans 1:18-23 – and there were many Christians bold enough to thank us aloud! This is not about us, but all about God. We had some interesting conversations, too. We also thank our Father God for allowing many, many Hindus and Muslims to take His Son’s Word from us in literature form and we do pray that this Word will go into their houses and the Holy Spirit will bring conviction to many of their family members.

To the latter end of the afternoon Lungisa and I ‘tag-teamed’ as we alternated reading aloud Psalms randomly – Psalm 1, 2, 7, 19, 24, 23, etc… at our ‘pulpits’ either side of the gate.

Here are some photos of today’s evangelism – Album.

Please keep all those who received the Word of God today in prayer and also please pray for us. Please also pray for some Christians who want to correct our doctrine, yet their first priority would seem to be to come and ‘enjoy’ the Show! There appears to be at times so many ‘experts’ on evangelism and the Scriptures, but they fail to lead by example. James 1:22 says ~

But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

And

Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. ~ Luke 10:2

Soli Deo Gloria
