Cars in the Park 2015 at Ashburton, KZN

cars-in-the-park-banner-2015 The Cars in the Park event that is normally held in Alexandra Park in Pietermaritzburg was this year held at the Ashburton Training Centre for racehorses about 15kms outside the city on Sunday May 17, 2015. As over the years, we have gone to the annual event to reach lost souls with the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

7  Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God. ~ Psalm 20:7

We had been down with the influenza during the week and whilst we rested and prayed for healing our Great God was gracious in His love by healing and giving us strength to go and share the Gospel of His blessed Son Jesus Christ to the hordes of humanity that flocked from all over South Africa to come to this event, which is an event run by the freemasons, as was the case last year, too. Their motto as can be seen stitched on the back of their caps,  read: “Making GoodDSCF2946.1 Men, Better Men!!” We know this to be vanity and deceptive for our Lord Jesus Christ even corrected the young rich ruler’s understanding on who is good when he said:

17  And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?
18  And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God. ~ Mark 10:17,18

Before entering the facility, we wrestled with the fact that our admission payment would be going to this devilish organization, who now so blatantly come out into the open and masquerade as a “holistic” benevolent organization. Our Lord provided an open-door as we entered the facility and was able to hand out our Gospel literature, engage in witnessing and open-air preaching without any hindrance from the ever present marshals passing by us. There was even a security camera drone that hovered overhead!

Andre and Chris We had two very engaging conversations and our Lord also sent encouragements from Christians our way. The first conversation was with two young teenagers visiting from Westville, near Durban, named Andre and Chris. Andre said he is a believer and Chris said he was hearing the Gospel for the first time. They both looked as if they were under conviction. We pray for our Father to bring them to a sound knowledge of the Saviour of the world, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Donald (JW) and MariusThe second conversation was started by Marius with a Jehovah  Witness named Donald (?). We dealt with the usual objections that JWs always bring, but when he spoke about people being destroyed in the grave and will not experience pain and suffering in hell after death, the one Scripture that really got him thinking was when we asked him to check his NWT (JW bible) on his smart-phone and read Revelation 20:10 where it also reads “tormented day and night for ever and ever.” The King James Bible reads:

10  And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. ~ Revelation 20:10

The conversation went back and forth as always, but he was hearing the Truth from Scripture. Please pray for all JWs who are deceived by the false teachings of The Watchtower Society situate in Brooklyn.

Just on 1pm when the parachutists were about to perform our Lord Jesus Christ gave opportunity to proclaim Him to the gathering crowds looking skywards! Here are three audio clips:
