Boise Pride Festival Preaching (09/11/2022)

Today was a very full day of witnessing to the people of the LGBTQ Community. I started my day at the Gay Pride Parade at 9am and then ended at the Gad Pride Festival at 5pm. At the parade, I raised my sign up high and walked the parade along with the people on the floats. I made it as if I was part of the event. Sure, I got many boos and chants, “go home, you don’t belong here”, along with much more derogatory things. Did it deter me from witnessing the truth of their being only two genders, male and female, and other things about Jesus? No. I continued to raise the sign high as people began to harass me by flowing their flags in my face and dancing very crudely in front of me. They even took my Jesus hat and ran off with it. With all that said, I was able to talk to many people about Jesus. Some of them even gave an amen when they saw my sign and gave me a thumbs up. So all was not for not when it came to the parade. I loved every minute of standing ground for Christ in the midst of the wicked. “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” (Romans 1:16) What I did at the pride parade was gutsy and took boldness. This boldness came from God. He did this through me, as His vessel.

After the parade ended, I was already at the gates of the Gay Pride Festival. It was then that I had many conversations with people because of the sign. It’s like people were drawn to it. And for the most part, people were looking for hate speech, along all I could do is show them love. My message with people I talked to today was, come as you are to Jesus and He will do a work in your life. I cannot force anybody’s hands, but God. How there is a better way to live our lives with Jesus in it. Not only are we changed, but Jesus’s blood covers us and we are made clean. So the people that said the part on the sign that said repent was wrong, I asked them if they ever change their mind about things, and they said they did. With God, He convicts us of what is evil and sinful, and turning from it for his sake is what is necessary. It is not so bad when we admit that we are a sinner and have need of a Savior. I spoke all this with love. Many hugs and invitations to church were extended, along with praying over two Satanists. Near the end, a lady from the festival came up to me and said that she had never seen a person so patient and peaceful as I was when it came to Christians. She thanked me and we both hugged. Praise the Lord. God was with me this day, and many lives were touched for Christ’s sake. Amen.

Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that people at this Gay Pride Festival were affected for Your good. I spent many hours out there on the streets and I was blessed to talk to so many people about You, Jesus. I give thanks to Sean, who gave me the sign to use and keep for the future. Thank You, God, for Him and for allowing me to reach even more people because of it. Lord, I am grateful to know that many people came to know You in a new way today. How people found out that I was not hostile, but came to them with love and kindness. I pray that people saw this in me and others. People who really love You with all our hearts. Certainly, people saw my sign as a person that was going to be hostile at this event. Only because of You I was given over to a spirit of meekness. As I was submissive to You, You helped me reach different individuals for Your kingdom in their own way. Everyone is different, and each person needed to hear a different message. But one thing that needed to be taught was that You, Jesus, died for our sins on the cross. If we would just repent, our sins would be blotted out. That there are only two genders, male and female, and how this is the natural way for us from the beginning. I pray that they will come as they are to You, Jesus. Then, can you do a work in their lives. I love You. Amen.
