I’m on the plane just having departed Laguardia for Thetford Farms = Home. It’s been a great 11 days in NYC. I truly am a blessed man living in the quiet countryside of rural Oklahoma, and then to be able to spend months in the hustle and bustle of big cities among the diverse people groups of the world.
This past weekend I had some really great encounters and shared Jesus wth several, mainly Jewish people, at Union Square. On May Day every year Union Square reminds me somewhat of how Paul described to us in Acts 17 of Athens.
The park becomes the place for public expression of every cause under the sun. Thousands and thousands of people are present, both to speak and to listen and to discuss. On Sunday a nice looking, very clean cut young man was on the steps speaking. I have to tell you that by appearance this guy looked like the kind of fellow you would want your daughter to bring home.
I stopped to listen to him speak among only a small group listening to him. As I listened to his words I could hardly believe what I was hearing. He was spewing out the most anti-Semitic verbiage I have ever heard. He blamed all of the ills and problems of the entire planet on the Jewish people. He was again calling for the annihilation of the Jewish people.
There was a young lady standing next to me and I leaned over and asked her what she thought of his ideas. She stated she was Jewish and she was scared to death. I then found out that the only listeners standing were all Jewish as well. This is the first time I had ever stood before a person calling for me and the lives of my peoples deaths while he was standing so boldly in his proclamation.
This opened the door for me to have a 30 minute conversation with Hagit about Jesus the Messiah. This is the first time she had ever heard of the love of God through Jesus, and that He came to this earth to die for the sins of mankind so that we could become righteous if we would only trust Him. Please pray for Hagit that she will come to the knowledge of the truth.
After my conversation with Hagit I went up to the venomous young man and asked him some questions, which he refused to answer, and then I shared some of my thoughts with him. He left immediately after my words. The terrible thing is he was speaking using some biblical language and a few verses as proof for his ideas. It sounds a lot like WWII Germany under Hitler. My prayer is that God will spare another Holocaust type event from ever occurring and that King Messiah Jesus will soon return and set up His kingdom of true peace.
That’s all for now. I’m home for 3 weeks before leaving for Paris, London, and NY for 55 straight days. A busy summer is ahead of me. Pray with me that God will save many Jewish people in these 3 campaigns.
Shalom until next time, Lord willing,
