Give Me Salem Or I Die!

 

“One man with God is always in the majority.”

This weekend 3 people connected to my husband and myself passed away. I went for a walk to pray because I was sad about their passing. But ended up Witnessing to so many people I couldn't even listen to the music I had prepared to listen to as I walked. God put the words in my heart. "Get Right With God!"
Even one man who has rebuffed me for years and when he sees me he goes inside of his house....I walked by him sitting on his porch and I said, pointing at him, "Get Right With God!" He answered humbly, "Yes Ma'am"
I began to pray "Give Me Salem, for your Glory! Give me Salem or I die." Meaning just like John Knox I am earnestly petitioning God to move in this town as I proclaim that Jesus is the only way! It's the gospel that will set them free. The faces I shared the gospel with today were ripe for the harvest. God directed my walk, and some people knew it was God that set them up to meet me on the street..... Every church that lives out the Great Commission, I pray souls run to them all crying out, "What Must I Do To Be Saved
!"

Choose Ye This Day Whom Ye Shall Serve!

I just came in from preaching in the streets  Union Street in Salem to be exact.  And I can still feel the anointing all over me!

There were about 12 young men out there gambling, drunk, high and I walked up to them to invite them to church.  Some laughed and pretended they didn't hear  me...but it showed me as it always does,  the hold the devil has on people.  So I began to share Jesus with them and all I could hear the Spirit say "Choose Ye This Day Whom Ye Shall Serve!"  The Lord showed me some of them when they are alone at night, they are tormented about death.  I shared this with them and gave them the Gospel of Jesus Christ!  Hope and Life in Jesus!
A young man asked me a question about Jesus being the only way and why wasn't there any other religions that were right.....I told them Jesus is the only way, and all He's asking for you to do is believe on Him.  No changing, no works, no nothing.  I told them they couldn't change what they were doing if they wanted to!  If they could the would have.

I sang John 3:16 for them and by the time it was all over...no more laughing, ignoring, just the words of life that Jesus gave me hanging in the air.

I love preaching about Jesus in the Streets!!!
Happy Resurrection Sunday!

Soul Saving Center Hit the Streets tonight!!!

Yes!!!!  We were out there as a church family.....not all of us but we were out in the neighborhoods sharing the gospel, hugging people we haven't seen in so long!

I love it that so many of our church knew so many of the people tonight and there were beautiful "God-Connections" going on....People shared their story of how Jesus came into their lives and also His great power to save them!

As they reflect on encounters and the prayerwalks, praying over homes and people they got to plant the seeds of the gospel, the Soul Saving Center Street Journal will include more than just my account.  You just don't know how that makes me so happy!!!

I'm so overjoyed and thankful for them all....Frosty, Terry, Lydia, Irene, Maurice, Crystal, Jaden and Irene's granddaughter....(I can't remember her name! But she was out there!)

Thank you for sharing Jesus with our community.  And when we pray for Salem tomorrow in church, I know you all will have someone in particular on your mind.  I love you all so much!

"If Jesus didn't Love you, I wouldn't be out here....."

I found myself saying that over and over again to so many young people hanging out tonight.

It's been quite a while since I have written in the Soul Saving Center Street Journal....but something drove me to the streets tonight.

We just finished Hinds Feet in High Places and the book ended with the character returning to her valley where there was so much darkness and sadness and evil but she was different and she knew she was to tell them about the way out...even if they didn't believe her or listen....she had to tell them.....I sat there reflecting on the end of that book and I felt myself anxious to hit the streets....

What really fueled the fire was some who were there had family members who had recently experienced violence or something traumatic in their families....and it happened in Salem....
 We prayed together and after praying I found it hard to sit still....I left right after making my way to the specific streets that were mentioned tonight.  There were so many people hanging out all along the way....so I parked the car and walked up to groups of people, people in cars.....hanging out, high, making exchanges but they all took a flyer inviting them to church.

Each group got a different approach from me.  The Lord is teaching me to listen to His voice as to how to break the ice....but the words "I wouldn't be out here if Jesus didn't love you" was something that God wanted me to let them all know....and you know what so many said in response?  "I believe that!"
 Don't think because you see rough tough looking people hanging out that they don't feel the emptiness inside them....that's why they are doing so much to elevate the happiness they crave.  Looking for God in all the wrong places.

I met a young woman who had come into my center for help a few days ago and as I spoke to her about her life and what it would look like with Jesus as Lord in her life she remembered me....I didn't remember her but when she reminded me, I told her this was a "God-Connection"  and she said "Probably!"  She didn't want me to see her  in her present state as she was very upset and saying a lot of "Things" very loudly when I walked up to her.  We are staying in touch!

A car I approached had very dark windows....I knocked on the window and asked if I could give them a flyer....once the window was down they both knew me and told me who they were.  They come from families who are Believers....We chatted about the knowledge they have of God and how they should be out here with me!  They said, "Yea, I know."   They can't hide forever....they've got to choose....heaven or hell.

I came home greatly anticipating going out again....the Harvest is White and so ready for the gospel...
Of course I heard the enemy talking smack about people not wanting to hear me....but that's whats so cool about listening to the Holy Spirit....He gave me ice breakers that require me to follow up because I proposed some art classes just for the girls and they were receptive.  I talked to some kids about singing and while talking to some guys tonight, I believe the Lord was there ahead of me dealing with them.
There's nothing like writing about these times....I'll be writing more....If Jesus doesn't come back, I've got more time to tell people about Him.

Daddy, Your Work Is Still Going On!

Soul Saving Center's soldiers have been handing out door hangers everywhere!  Very creative places! :-)  Great Work Family!
The Post Office!  Neighborhoods and in the hands of people!  

Today I went out after an awesome intensive training on christian community development with CCDA.  It was beyond amazing and we will implement what we have learned today because the training was of God because He Loves Salem!...but I digress....

I put door hangers out all over East Side, Olive St and Union St.....but it was East Broadway that I want to focus on....
On the way back from East Side I was going home to get more door hangers and on East Broadway I saw a huge crowd of people, about 40 or more.  There was a decorated Marine there so I gathered it was for him.
I decided to drop by and give out the door hangers....I  prayed because they looked like they were having a good time and didn't want to be interrupted by some woman with something in her hands.  That was the thought the devil tried to plant in my hard head!  So I prayed and walked up to the first group of people.
I handed one out and she yelled out "Soul Saving Center! Mr. Irvin would pick us up on the bus and take us to Penns Grove to church!  That was everybody's church!  Thank you so much!"  I told them who I was and by then they were reminiscing about Soul Saving Center so loudly that everyone in that group took a door hanger!!!  EVERY SINGLE ONE!  
I thanked the Marine for his service and went to the truck with tears in my eyes....

"Daddy, Your Work Is Still Going On!"
No matter how high people were today, they took them.....some remembered my Dad and were so receptive today!

I came back and shared with my Mom and she said, "I'm not surprised Mikki, Your Dad didn't want to see anyone go to hell so he worked fervently for Jesus!"

March 3, 2018 Daddy will be in heaven for 3 years....but guess what....
God is still using what my Daddy did to soften the hearts of people to receive the gospel...even in the form of a door hanger!

Thank you Daddy,
Thank you Jesus!

Why Sit Here Til You Die? 2 Kings 7:3

Church was awesome!!!  God moved in Soul Saving Center!

Taking my cousin home, I went down Olive St and I heard this verse screaming in my spirit as I looked at the lost souls sitting on stoops, standing around blitzed out of their minds.   Especially the one whom God told me to warn....I was instructed by God to warn him once more.

I took every one home and then went back there.  I got out of my car and I shared the gospel with force, love and obedience.....but I told the truth and exposed the devil for the liar that he is. 

The 3 on the stoop listened intently and told me they knew I was telling them right.  One said, "I love you!"  I told them I loved them too.  I told them that was why I was in front of them telling them that Jesus breaks chains!  He will break their chains but they have to make a decision to not sit here until they die!

I left them and then I went on to the one who God told me to warn.  He told me he had cancer and it had come back and he didn't have long.  I told him I knew that the first time I warned him.  He said after I die, I'm dead....I told him not so...I told him about the terror of meeting God face to face in judgement in his sin.  He said once he's dead he is dead.  I told him not so....he said he didn't want to hear it!!!  He told me he was blessed, I told him he was cursed because he will not accept the truth of the gospel and be delivered.  I told him he cannot drink the sin away.

He told me he didn't want to hear it.  He told me this the last time...I told him his time was short on earth.
He said he loved me, I told him I loved him and if he didn't give his heart to Jesus now, he was bound for eternity in hell.

I felt as if a weight was lifted off of me but then the hurt of him rejecting God left me too.  It's in His hands.

Why sit here until you Die? 

Jesus has life abundant waiting! 

Two sermons preached today! 
God get your people ready!!!

Selah!

Jesus Is The Only Way

Soul Saving Center is a wonderful place to pray, prepare for tomorrow's message, enjoy quiet time with the Lord.  I love it!!!
But today before going in I saw a group of young men sitting on steps across Broadway so I put my tote down and walked over. One guy was talking about how someone was about put a gun in his face but something warned him to turn around....I listened to his story and then asked him what was that something that warned him?  He responded, " Oh no, not that....I know it was God I was raised to be a Christian...". Then he proceeded to tell me who was Muslim in the group and they probably don't want to hear this....Still I gave the Message of God's Love and why He sent His only Son.
   One Muslim stood up and mumbled something to me, I asked him what he said, he said, "Why are you lifting Jesus above God?"  And walked away....I never got to answer him.....
Now here's the good part....
I went back to the church to pray and I kept hearing "There is no other name under heaven, whereby men can be saved, other than the name of Jesus! 
I said "Lord he's gone... You want me to go back out there? ". All the while I'm walking back outside and I see him sitting on the steps....I prayed, "Lord if you want me to tell him this, when he sees me coming towards him, don't let him move.".
He didn't move...
I told him I just finished praying for him and I said, "The Lord told me to tell you this... There is No Other Name Under Heaven Whereby Men Can Be Saved...Other Than The Name Of Jesus! He is the ONLY WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE.  I then left and walked back across the street to the church....
I wonder what Jesus is doing over there now? #AngelsAreBusy
