Yesterday I asked a guy if I can sit at his table outside in front of a gas station/restaurant, he had 4, 5 cans of beer of 33cl in front of him. I thought he drinked the cans with friends before they left. I told him I like to see the sunset at this place. I thought how to talk to him about Jesus and not be impolite at his table. I opened my can of tea and drinked a bit, thinking, asking God to help me. Finally I answered (before he had the intention to leave): do you speak French? He said not really, English? He said yes. Ok, I have to translate, he smiled.
Go to the point: as he was reading his smartphone (as a lot of people nowadays, it’s easy). Do you read the Bible on your phone? He said no, Facebook! We don’t have time to read Facebook, Instagram, Twitter but to seek Jesus because Jesus is coming really soon now. He was listening
He was Romanian and probably a van driver.
Do you know what will come probably in 2022 or tomorrow? He said no. The tribulations, 7 years, the wrath of God because God said you don’t believe in me but love the darkness, ok I give you what you want, the antichrist. The antichrist is in fact a man having the power of Satan, his son, to make miracles and prodigies to seduce people. And a lot of people will believe his lies.
After I don’t really remember what I said but I spoke of Jesus, the son of God who came on earth to die for people believing in him, others will go to hell.
I told him to know if Jesus is real (and he’s real), just ask him, in your bed, your shower, on the road, everywhere, you don’t have to go to church, just believe Jesus really died for us, for our sins, if you do that he will give you a new heart and you will be a new creature. In this case, we are called children of God! Not when he will come back to take us but immediately when we believe in him. Unfortunately I forgave to tell him to repent and that Jesus was resurrected.
I spoke of my 2 God’s interventions, I was catholic… I told him not to speak to statues or Mary or men but to Jesus or his father “Father in heaven…”, just pray with your heart. He will give you a sign, not always as you want, but he will intervene in your life, I gave some examples… do it today!
As pastor said “today is your day of salvation, because I talked to you about Jesus”, not exactly correct but I was not so wrong.
I spoke probably 15 or 20 minutes and spoke about the mark of the beast…
Before leaving, he took the cans, and I realized that maybe he drinked alone.
If I would know this before, probably I would not talk to him!!! (What a mistake)
I hope guys, these stories can encourage you to meet people and speak of Jesus. This topic is not my topic, so add some stories to read Together we are stronger.
Maybe if next time I have the opportunity to speak so much and the person was listening without smiling (as he did, he was curious), maybe I would suggest to pray with him and accept Jesus. Unfortunately, I didn’t think of it
Yes, drills are important but fortunately the holy spirit is there to fill all the gaps.
