When the Michael Buble concerts were announced for the soon to be opened Aviva Stadium, which is on my doorstep,for next autumn I immediately knew that God was calling me to prepare for outreach on the 2 nights. There will also be many other crowds for other matches and concerts...Hallelujah! When a concert or match is over large crowds surge into the surrounding streets and a well selected location with my small preaching stool and a JESUS sign gets seen by tens of thousands over a short period of time. My prayer is that a few others can join me for such outreaches.Ant

The arrest of Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar represents the most significant Taliban capture since the terrorist attacks of September 11 according to a senior Obama administration official. Who loves war? Not me... yet I hate the Taliban and Al Quida more and so am glad to hear of the above news. You cannot love without hating what opposes love. You can't love Israel without hating the holocaust. Yet so often gospel preaching christians, yes there are a few left, get lambasted by lovey dovey "christians" who see God's love as a one sided coin with no holiness on the other side. When we get a sneak preview of heaven in the book of Revelation we see God on the throne surrounded by cries of "Holy, Holy, Holy". To an amoral badly educated and deeply deceived western mindset the idea of being called to account for anything puts them in a hissy fit. Boy are there some surprises in store when Jesus returns and Dawkins knee bows! ....God loves the world but hates that millstone around your neck called sin. My suggestion is get it cut off before it eternally sucks you down to the Psalm 88 place. Jesus can be your scapegoat if you get down off your high horse of pride for a moment and bow that stubborn knee of yours.

It's amazing what lies we swallow without thought so often. A classic one is the concept of "The Missing Link". If Evolution was true then we'd expect numerous if not countless "Missing Links" yet the singular version is always used. The classic "find" was Neandarthal man, otherwise known as "Man with rickets who suffered from Vitamin D deficiency following clouding over of planet and cooling caused by emergence of subterranean warmer waters at time after Noah's flood (aka Ice Age)".
On Saturday I was preaching on North Earl Street,...well someone had to do it as Dessie was sick in the bed! I spoke about exchanging the Truth for a lie and then went on to speak about the missing link I found, whose name is JESUS. He is the link between Holy God and Fallen Man. Sadly for many he remains the "undiscovered" missing link.

Last Saturday as we were out on Westmoreland Street witnessing for Jesus so too were at least 3 other groups on North Earl Street, Henry Street and Temple Bar. There was probably more out elsewhere too. I am reminded that before the great outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Ulster in 1859 there was a revival of Street Preaching...Do not despise the day of small beginnings! And why do we go out for Jesus? 'cos he came down for us! God loves the people in Dublin ...we are just the delivery boys with the message!
