Evangelism at the United vs Arrows Match, 2016/17

13  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14  Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
~ Matthew 7:13,14

This praise report is solely for GOD’s glory alone and that no attention be directed our-way! “He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30). On Friday 28th October 2016, Jono and Gary attended at the PSL “KZN-Derby” football match between Maritzburg United and Lamontville Golden Arrows that took place at the Harry Gwala Stadium. We arrived just on 17H30.

Rain will not keep the "die-hard" supporter from attending the game A little rain was not going to dampen the going out and preaching the Gospel of our great GOD and Saviour our Lord Jesus Christ. And neither was the rain going to keep the “die-hard” supporters from attending the game! We are thankful to our GOD YEHOVAH who controls all things for His Own glory.

Whilst wicked men indulge in their iniquity GOD will hold every man accountable for his own actions. GOD does not tempt men, as we read,

13  Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
14  But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
15  Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. ~ James 1:13-15

The queues started to grow as it rained This evening would be no different. We were told by wicked men who were drunk with alcohol that they know ‘Jesus’. These men were confronted to their faces that they do not know the true Jesus of the Bible and are therefore not filled by the Spirit of GOD, but filled by the spirits of alcohol! GOD’s Word tells us that drunkards will not inherit the Kingdom of GOD, for it is written,

9  Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10  Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. ~ 1 Corinthians 6:9,10

The "die-hard" supporters filed past the preaching atop the box Unless drunkards repent of and forsake their abominable sin of drunkenness those drunkards are headed for Hell! An inebriated man entering through the turnstiles even turned back to argue that we are the “illuminaty” because he was confronted with his sin by the Truth of GOD’s Word by the power of the Holy Spirit. The following Scriptures explain this sinful man who is wise in his own conceit, as we read,

20  Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
21  Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
22  Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: ~ Isaiah 5:20-22

Hearing the Law and the Gospel of Grace This drunkard being “wise in his own eyes and prudent in his own sight” also tried to “educate” the evangelists and those spectators within earshot with the question: “Who wrote the Bible?” He then slurring and abrasively answered his own question: “King James wrote the Bible!” This man opened his mouth and showed the world the fool that he is!

Much Scripture portions in Gospel pamphlets and booklets were handed out and much more preaching to small groups of youth hanging around for “freebie tickets” were confronted with the Truth! From some who mocked and scorned the preaching, their mouths were stopped, or they left their friends to continue hearing The Word! We pray for the souls of men who heard the Way of Salvation and the preaching of the Kingdom of GOD!

We also thank GOD for Jono sharing the Gospel in isiZulu after he had walked the various queues handing out many, many Gospel tracts . . .

Jono sharing in isiZulu Jono sharing in isiZuluAnd still the crowds are arriving just shortly before the 20H00 kick-off Thank You Lord Jesus for the preaching!

Kindly keep all in prayer praying to the One and Only true and living GOD for the salvation of souls. We read,

6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
7  If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
~ John 14:6,7

23  And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
24  I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
~ John 8:23,24

3  And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. ~ John 17:3

Kindly keep us in prayer for our next PSL football outreach, Lord willing, at the Harry Gwala Stadium’s South Gate, being on Wednesday evening 2nd November, 2016 from 17:30 – 19:30
