TopSTAND MY GROUND
November 12, 2012, Arkansas State
     Last year we preached at ASU the day before Thanksgiving break when there were few students left on campus. Today was much different.   Speakers are supposed to give advanced notice here.   There were two policemen waiting when Cindy, Granddaughter Iris and I arrived. Cindy gathered a sizable crowd. When I took my turn, there were many claiming to be Christians but they were cursing and claiming that one could not live without sin. I announced that I was a Pentecostal who believed in holiness, which disturbed some. I spoke on the gifts of the Spirit including tongues. Someone claimed there had to be an interpreter present. I answered, "I can interpret my own message in tongues." [I did not speak in tongues this afternoon].   Typically, Baptists know little about the gifts of the Spirit. I made a few derogatory remarks on sin excusing dead Baptist churches. The crowd went into a rage and one of the policemen moaned. I may have overstated my case because there are Baptist churches which I respect and occasionally enjoy attending.
Students praying against us at Arkansas State.
     By the time Cindy took her second turn the mob was in frenzy even though she was light in her remarks. By the time I took my second turn students were beside themselves and so emotionally stirred that they were unteachable. They remained relentlessly agitated for the rest of the afternoon. Two policemen stood beside me as I preached from a concrete block by the historical arch, which is the designated free speech area. The policemen repeatedly had to back off the horde.   It is a good thing that they were there or I suspect some in the crowd would have gotten violent.  
Iris, 4, quotes John 3:16 to the ASU students.
     A group of enraged radical middle-age female feminists trudged into the crowd. They cried, "Shame, shame." When I took my turn I apologized, "I am not here to put women down. If I have said anything that could be interpreted as derogatory towards women, please forgive me. I repeat; I am not her to put women down. I merely want to keep them in their proper place."  
     The fems went wild.   The old fems even followed Cindy and Iris into the bathroom.   Cindy took Iris back to the van for a nap as I finished the day. After 3 PM I could do little but either read the Bible or sing. I was not singing love songs to Jesus that we hear in contemporary worship services. I sang Amazing Grace, and militant songs, like Onward Christian Soldiers and songs about the blood-songs of power and warfare. I read many Scriptures; they even continued raging through my singing and reading. At one time a foul mouthed atheist female was in tears since she lost her temper earlier and now she was losing control of her emotions. There was a bald middle aged man wearing the dress of Imam. Since he was wearing spiritual looking garb, students tended to hush when he spoke. He tried to tie Jesus' promise of the Holy Spirit in John 16 with the coming of Mohammad. I quickly refuted that and his misrepresentation of Jesus. Of course, the students kissed up to the Imam. I started wrapping things up at about 4:30. After moving on several occasions and students followed me.   I wanted to demonstrate that I was a magnate used by the Holy Spirit to draw students wherever I relocated.  
Bro. Jed stands firm at ASU.
 
     One of the policemen wanted me to read from Romans 13:4 and Joshua 1:9. He then gently reproved me for not being more kind and showing compassion for the students. He reminded me that he had protected me despite my derogatory remarks concerning the Baptists. Nevertheless, he said he forgave me. I commended the police for their work. I conclude by reading from Psalm 141: "Let the righteous smite me; it shall be a kindness: and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil, which shall not break my head: for yet my prayer also shall be in their calamities." They followed me at a distance back to my car.
     We had the most boisterous and undisciplined crowd of the year today. Under such circumstances the strongest witness that I can give is to simply stand my ground. Students think they can intimidate me but I have never daunted or faltered.   How could I? I am a man filled with the Holy Ghost and power.   My musician friend, Rocket, has made Tom Petty's song my theme song,
 
Well I won't back down, no I won't back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down

Gonna stand my ground, won't be turned around
And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down
Gonna stand my ground and I won't back down

FROM THE STEPS OF THE CHAPEL
November 13, 2012, University of Central Arkansas,
     One has to speak on the steps of the chapel, which is normally a decent location. However, today there was an international festival in front of the Student Center. Loud amplified music accompanied the event. Rather than trying to speak above the racket, I decided to let my YOU DESERVE HELL sign do most of my speaking. A friendly atheist sat down beside me. He claimed the Saudi's had control of the music for the festival. Eventually, a pleasant atheist girl and a professing Christian approached to ask about my sign. The Christian girl said she believed John 14:6, but she also claimed that sincere people of other religions could go to Heaven. When I pointed out the contradiction, she admitted that she was confused. I had a long conversation with these girls and a few students that came up from time to time. 
Student dances wildly as Sister Angela proclaims the Word!
 
 
     The music finally stopped about 2:30.   Shortly after Angela arrived.   Cindy stayed home on the Mt. Zion Church grounds where we are staying in order to get caught up on office work.   Sister Pat is visiting her sister.   I spoke against false religions, especially Mohammadism. The religionists ignored me except for the professing Christians.   Gradually a crowd began to gather which eventually reached upwards to 50. Compared to yesterday at ASU the students were subdued. I handled many questions concerning the justice of Hell. There were several lesbians in the crowd with attitudes; however, at the end of the day they wanted their pictures taken with me. An atheist man wanted to know if I prayed for Al Qaeda. I answered, "I pray that God's judgment comes upon them." Free will was a significant issue.
Blond student on the left is a male in drag. Said he just did it for "fun." He listened to us each day.
  
     As is typical the multi-culturists, pluralists and secularists and others, who "are ever learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth," challenged me. The temperature dropped considerably after 4 PM as my audience gradually dissipated. After briefly expounding on the Lord's Prayer, I closed with prayer at 4:30.

YE SHALL RECEIVE POWER
November 14, 2012, University of Central Arkansas
     The students remained generally restrained today. Nothing like the chaos of last year. Yesterday, a man commended me for my crowd control. He said, "Don't get me wrong I do not believe anything you say but you are a genius at getting your point across." He was still excited about my communication skills today.
       Yesterday, a female asked, "Where do you get your strength?" I simply answered, "It is the Holy Ghost. I am a man filled with the Spirit of God." Today, she called me aside and asked, "Don't you ever get tired or discouraged?" I reiterated how the Holy Spirit empowers his witnesses.  
     At the end of the day a man asked, "Isn't there a better way of reaching people? Is this doing any good?"
Sister Cindy introduces Iris who is getting her Leap Pad ready to record the event.
     I answered, "We are getting people to think about the ultimate questions of life. Tonight issues we have raised will be the talk around the dinner table.   Initially, many will say, 'Did you hear those crazy preachers?' However, after they have made their little jokes, there will be a lot of discussion on religious issues."
     He replied, "Yes, I have heard that already; you are right; now I understand; thank you for explaining this to me."
Iris quotes Ephesians 2:1-3 to University of Central Arkansas Students.
     At noon the Baptists students were raising money for girls who were involved in forced prostitution in the third world.   I used their cause to promote my mission. I suggested that the college girls who were giving it away to start charging the boys. Then give a tenth of their income to free under aged girls in the third world to get them out of prostitution.   I said that I have more respect for the girls forced into prostitution than I did the girls who were giving it away.   As I expounded on this theme the students soon gathered.
Sister Cindy talks about the importance of obeying your parents!
     Initially, the dialogue I inspired dealt concerned apologetic issues. The students were attentive as I gave reasons for my hope.   However, several hypocrites from yesterday interrupted challenging me on my no sin doctrine. One black girl was adamant in reading 1 John 1:8, which settled the issue in her mind. These hypocrites demonstrated no concern for the atheists and agnostic with whom I had been talking. They were zealous to defend their sin. But they demonstrated no zeal to reach the lost. Why? Because they themselves are lost in their sins; perhaps more lost than the agnostics. At least the secularists have some interests in how faith can be defended.   Hypocrites want to defend a faith that excuses sin-a faith which has no power to overcome the lusts of the flesh, the lust of the eyes or the pride of life. They have a blind faith, which is not a saving faith. Saving faith saves a man from the power of sin.   Interestingly, the question of the Christian's power to completely overcome sin did not come up again for the rest of the afternoon.  
Bro. Gunner reasons with the students.
     Within the hour, I called upon Micah, a young preacher from our host church. He preached twice and did a fine job. Angela drew the largest crowd as she expounded on her past sins and the deliverance available through the Lord.
     About 4 PM Gunnar arrived with his family.   I turned the meeting over to him.   He dealt with issues concerning science and the Bible. At the end of the day, I gave an altar call.   But no one wanted to forsake their sins in order to be forgiven.
 
 
THE SCRIPTURES ARE PROFITABLE

November 16, 2012, University of Central Arkansas
     I opened the meeting by expounding on 2 Timothy 3:16-17, which is one of the fundamental verses of evangelical Christians.   The emphasis is usually on the first part of the verse which affirms the inspiration of the Bible. I spoke on how knowledge of the Scriptures is profitable intellectually, morally, spiritually and even materially. I told the passing students that I was their instructor in righteousness. There is virtually no teaching on character building in the classroom.   Indeed, I fear that many of the professors are not men of good character. I expounded on the necessity of sound doctrine concerning the nature and character of God and the nature of man. I warned the students that I would be reproving, rebuking and exhorting them. Now none of us like to be corrected, but we all need correction from time to time.   It is good for us. I said that I was their instructor and I had a big red marker and I would be writing all over them in order to prepare them for their final exam with God, whose standard is nothing short of moral perfection.  
Spirit-Filled preaching is a key to success.
 
     Students gathered at a distance and within 30 minutes I turned the meeting over to Sister Cindy. Under her exhortations the crowd moved in closer to the steps.   By the time I gave my second lecture, the crowd was at the foot of the steps of the chapel. I am fighting a cold so I did not preach long before I turned the pulpit over to Gunnar's wife, Mary. By this time the students were more stirred than they had been all week.
Student on the right agreed to repent of his sins.  He was a Christian who had come to campus and become a part of the party scene. He was on the football team.
     Shortly before changing speakers, I had announced, "We are on pervert alert; there are fraternity boys in the area; girls cross your legs immediately."
     A group of fraternity brothers approached me on the sidelines, who claimed to be Christians. A Sigma Chi, who said that he was a virgin, objected to my attack on the frats. I explained that I was being satirical and generalizing concerning fraternity life. They did not argue much against my clarification. They even admitted that I was stirring up controversy and discussion concerning spiritual matters and opening up opportunities for them to witness. Eventually, the Sigma Chi said that he heard that I said that I do not sin any more. When I defended Christian perfection, they all got agitated. One of the boys admitted to a problem with porn and masturbation. He said, "But God's grace covers these sins."
Sister Mary D. encourages the students to seek the Face of the Lord.
     I expounded on Titus 2 which teaches that God's grace is the divine influence upon the heart that sets us free from sin.   When I admitted that sometimes I might tell an unselfish lie, they thought that they had me pinned.   They argued that a lie is always a sin. I countered with the example of Rehab, the harlot, who lied concerning the spies and God commended her and spared her and her family for her faith. I expounded on the conflict between the letter and the spirit of the law, that when the two conflict we follow the spirit. We can never violate the spirit of the law, but sometimes in order to keep the spirit, we may have to break the letter of the law. They either could not understand or refused to accept my doctrines, which may be the main reason that people do not receive the doctrine of Christian perfection. Men stumble over the letter of the law and miss the spirit of the law, which requires love for the purpose of promoting the highest good of all and preventing the highest misery of all beings, including Almighty God. The letter of the law is impossible to always keep, but the spirit of the law is keep able. After hearing their dense arguments and noting their sinning Christianity, I thought to myself that the follow-up work from the Christian community which results from our ministry may do more harm than good. When sinning Christians talk to unbelieving students, they give them a false notion of grace and lower God's standard of living to one in which we all sin daily in thought, word and deed. Teaching which excuses sin is straight from the devil.
Like her mom and aunts, when they were her age, Iris enjoyed the afternoons on campus.
     Cindy was excited by a conversation on the sidelines with a football player who objected to her approach. However, she soon turned the conversation to his relationship with God. He admitted that since coming to college he had fallen away from his Christian testimony into sin. Cindy exhorted him to repent; he agreed with every counsel that Cindy gave to him to get right with God immediately with, "Yes Mam."
Bro. Gunner let them know that he is a chemistry Ph.D. so an heated science discussion ensued. 
     Sister Pat arrived late in the afternoon with her sister, Mary. Both of these ladies took their turn calling the students to holiness. I finished the preaching with an exhortation to the students to search for God with your whole heart.   I dismissed the students about 5 PM but we waited another 20 minutes as Sister Angela was having an intense conversation with a lesbian who has spent most of each day in our crowd. I have had a considerable amount of interaction with her. Angela concluded by reading the latter part of Romans 1 to the girl. The lesbian's grandfather was a Pentecostal preacher. The lesbian said to Cindy as we were leaving. "You remind me of my grandmother."   She also said that her grandmother was not speaking to her.   We prayed for the lesbian on the our drive back to our host church.

THE BUDDING IRIS
November 16, 2012,   UCA
     Once again I opened the outreach by expounding on 2 Timothy 3:16-17. As has been the pattern all week students began gathering at a distance.
"Peace comes through Jesus Christ," Sister Cindy.
  I preached for 30 minutes and called upon Cindy. Soon the crowd was at the steps. Daily, Iris has been quoting her memory verses to the students. Remarkably, the students quiet down as she boldly recites Ephesians 6:1-2 and John 3:16. The students applauded Iris. It is interesting watching the first grandchild doing the same thing her mother and aunts did. Iris is sociable and made a few friends with the nicer girls on campus and played hide and seek in the area. After Iris quoted her verses Cindy expounded on, "Children obey your parents." Most of them never learned this at home; hence we have a generation of rebels and degenerates.  
Horse head listeners have been common this semester.
The breakdown of parental authority is astounding. The students were very agitated today as we pricked their consciences with the sword of the spirit.
Bro. Micah standing for God's Word at UCA.
     Usually, when Micah speaks the students calm down somewhat since he is less confrontational. This was initially the case today. However, it was not long before they were extremely disturbed with Micah's preaching. The crowd asked Micah, "Why do you hate homosexuals? He answered, "Because God hates them!" The mob went into a tizzy; nevertheless, Micah continued to show the perverts God's love by calling them to repentance and faith in the Lord.
Iris learned to ride a scooter that her Aunt Char bought her this week. The chapel where we preached from had a circle porch and Iris rode around and around it.
     All afternoon we had individuals holding signs beside us or behind us. One fellow wore an ass's head most of the day. Cindy kept telling the depraved ones that the gospel provided victory over sin; whereas they argued that the gospel provided forgiveness as they continued to sin. They claimed that God's love embraces everyone unconditionally.  
Bro. Jed had a long conversation with this lesbian girl.  She listened intently and said that Sis. Cindy reminded her of her grandmother.
     Mary preached for a long time. A petite "Christian" girl initiated a conversation with me. She was very pleasant but she turned out to be a whore who was fornicating with her "fiancÚ." Others eventually joined the conversation and I had a very good session for almost an hour with about eight students, who were soberly attentive to my gospel presentation. The lesbian, who Angela witnessed to yesterday, joined the conversation; she claims to resent God because she lost 11 family members to death within a year or so and she was also raped at 17 by a male. She has been taking anti-depressants for two years
It was a great week of preaching in Arkansas.
.   Both Cindy and I have been teaching against the anti-depressants. It usually causes as much of a stir as when we are preaching against immorality.   The lesbian serves an Episcopal church as an acolyte and carries the cross. However, she had no understanding of the purpose of the cross.   She was an intent listener and she allowed me to pray for her at the end. I told her that if she got saved she would no longer be depressed but she would be filled with hope. This session with the lesbian and the others was for me the highlight of our four days at UCA. Of course, they typically ask why I am not like I am with these small groups when I am preaching to the main crowd. I answer that without the aggressive preaching the small group would have not gathered.

Fall Semester 2012
     This is my tentative schedule for the Fall Semester 2012. There are so many campuses and so little time. Should anyone want to arrange a church or home meeting while I am in your area please contact me. Also, let me know if you are interested in scheduling formal debates with atheists, Muslims, or Christians, who disagree with my message or methods. One student leader recently contacted me that he wanted me to speak to the Young Republicans on limited government and free markets. I am still open to changes. I will be doing my tour of the Southwest and California in the Spring Semester 2013. Sister Cindy and Sister Pat will be accompanying me full time this year.  Any Christians, who are interested in joining us on the road for a while, or who want to meet us on campuses in your area, are welcome.  Remember to pray for the campuses that we have already preached on.  Bro. Jed
