Van Dwellers Preaching Christ 2020



Attention: Aug 2020

While we are still full time van dwellers out preaching Christ crucified daily and all over America; you can now see the latest van dweller updates here:



You an go below and read some of our past 2019/2020 experiences as van dwellers preaching Christ:






                               ( a picture of us just to show you that ....we are indeed real people )

In 2020, we enter our second year having become a full time evangelist, street preaching / van dwelling / traveling ministry.... all self funded. We retired from our business / sold most all of our things. (we still have a off gird homestead in Missouri) We are using our money and time to go proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ and His glorious kingdom all over America and assisting others into His kingdom. We feel so blessed to be used of God in this small way to proclaim His kingdom as we are not worthy! We go to street preach/evangelize, hold gospel signs, stand outside religious places and go to the worlds events to call men to repent, all over America! We also teach how to be the body of Christ in your home!


Below you can read about a few daily / biblical topics and interesting little experiences related to "van dwelling for Christ". 


 Note: Again the heart of my teachings are found here with thousands of resources audios,videos and articles to edify you:

Rodeo Rowdy and False Converts say Howdy

We stood outside a rowdy rodeo event in South Dakota where I preached the gospel to the lost spectators as they paid to go in. 



See videos of that here:
https://www.dontperish.com/witnessing-videos/street-preaching-at-professional-bull-riders-event


As we do these events all over the nation; we always have worldly false convert people who try to say hello and pretend they are of God. We lovingly always remind them that they cannot be of God and be living in the fallen sinful worlds ways. (James 4:4) It most times makes them reject us all together and show no love towards us. We love them though and want better for them as on judgement day they will perish as they are not out of the world as sheep of God. 
The bible says it plain and clear:

John 17 
I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

Repent and come out of the world and obey the gospel!

rowdiness is NOT of God nor is a so called saint who lives like the world!

Thanks Cabela's and Nasty Fellas

We are really enjoying our van dwelling time out west preaching all over the USA. We have stayed at a outdoor store parking lot called Cabela's. Thank you Cabela's for the FREE camping. (we bought some van dweller stuff in their store) 


As I street preach all over and ministering online; we meet some really nice and some NASTY fellas. In the street you meet the usual mockers or angry men or women who get in your face and such but online it can be much worse. Today some person I have never met or emailed before sent me some email questions. He did not like the answers (and I had exposed his favorite false teacher) and he called me a bigot???? then he said he was going to the FBI to tell them I sent him terrorist threats. I sent him only bible answers and my Father is watching and He will repay nasty men for their ill deeds. 

And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
Matt 25:46

We strive on doing the work of the Lord only fearing our God which is great wisdom. 

We will be back at Cabela's and daily we watch for those evil fellas.

Not Video Shy and The BIRD Flipped in my Eye

As I street preached at Mt Rushmore in South Dakota today, I met a man who was interested in God's truth and we talked. He then asked if he could video tape some of the preaching for his youtube channel. 



I said; sure as I am NOT video shy. Let the gospel truth will go out to more places I say. 

As I preached, we saw a lot of mockers this day. We did see some sheep too but I got a unusually high amount of people flipping me the bird. (that is a vulgar hand gesture if you do not know) All I was doing was proclaiming God's Word.
My heart hurts to see such hatred for Christ's truth in America.
The Lord is coming to judge and expose all such hearts. 

Revelation 20:12

And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds.


I pray they repent and that is why we go and call them to it while there is time!

No I am not shy and keep your vile bird out of my eye!

Stinky Brakes and Sack Cloth Fakes

As full time van dwellers traveling all over the country preaching Jesus Christ crucified, we put on a lot of miles and we use a lot of brakes. At times they can get stinky too like when you come off a huge mountain and then you have to let them cool off as they get stinky.

There is a false faith healer on the internet going around in his fake sack cloth garment calling cities in America to repent.



The reason he is a fake is proven at my testing of him below. He teaches false ways, in prideful, arrogant, unloving and he is using sack cloth for a stunt as he normally dresses like the world; immodest and carnal. Do not be a hypocrite like this man. Learn of God's Word/Christ and His holy ways and keep them at all times (daily) NOT just for internet clicks and more followers in staged stunts! 

See him exposed here with a large testing that documents it all:

I laugh at hot brakes but false teacher fakes, I rebuke!

Flying Phones and Phony Christians

As you van travel and then stand out to witness the gospel all kinds if things can happen. Today as I stood by a busy street with gospel signs a car drove by and I almost got hit by....


a flying phone, yep!!
See as they turned, a phone came flying out and it bounced landed 6 inches from my foot. It is never boring out here!
I picked it up and watched them drive off. I watched for their car and thought; maybe I can get it back to them and give them the gospel? Sure enough 45 minutes later they drove past and I called out and they were thrilled to get their phone back. Of course I gave both men the gospel and they thanked me and drove off. God be praised

We see a lot of PHONY so called Christians out here. 
They say amen and give thumbs up but they are dead to God's truth and holiness in their daily lives. I always ask them about the biblical gospel and encourage them to come talk of the Lord but; they almost always have better worldly carnal things to do as they entertain themselves. 
God's Word speaks of some of them in Revelation:

So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Rev 3:16

Repent false or lukewarm believers and be made new by the gospel or you will perish!


Phones cant really fly but; phony Christians fly away fast when you bring up truth, obedience and holiness.

Mats and Mountains

When we travel as full time van dwellers, it's clear to see the pet idolatry in this nation (surely in many other places in the world) and it's getting worse as the days go by. We see all the time, effort, love, emotion and money that people spend on pets, dogs mostly!



What's worse is that we've come across countless people who profess to be of Christ yet they lift their dogs up as family and treat the people of God like a door mat.  Shameful! 
You can read about pet pagansim here from our teaching blog:
http://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/2014/04/paganism-and-pets.html

As we leave that thought behind us,  let's look at what was behind us today as we traveled, working our way to some more tourist towns to preach the gospel in the streets.



Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain
Isaiah 40:4

People are not doormats over dogs and the mountains sure glorify our Great God, amen?

Picking Produce and Poison Waters

As a van dwelling keeper at home sister debbie has to shop very wise and be timely as we cant keep a lot of fresh things at a time. Recently she made a nice haul on picking some awesome produce for super cheap!!!



As we were traveling down the gospel road at a stop I noticed this stagnant pool of water and I though how gross to drink of it:



This poison water could represent life and I would ask on a daily basis what are we all drinking from? The worlds ways, tv, media, false Sunday religion and mans philosophies? Or are we drinking of the pure living water of Christ and His holy Word? 

Assemble yourselves, and let us go into the fortified cities
And let us perish there,
Because the Lord our God has doomed us
And given us poisoned water to drink,
For we have sinned against the Lord.
Jer 8:14

If you claim Him you better be drinking of and obeying Him daily!

truth and produce are sweet to the lips but false ways are as poison water

Shower From the Sun and False Teachers on the Run 

Often we will use what God gave us in van dwelling life and a shower from the sun is a good example.



Just wrap some gallons of water in car windshield reflectors, set in sunshine and at the end of the day, you have warm shower is ready!



Thank you Lord for a warm free shower on the gospel road!

It seems to be a daily event of late. A man sees our gospel signs or me out preaching and he comes over to tell me his version of truth. Sadly 99% of the time it is twisted and corrupt ways of defending sin and man made false traditions. When I show them the truth in God's Word these false teachers always run!
The last false teacher told me that repentance is required for salvation, he agreed it was leaving sin then he said you can be a practicing adulterer and still go to heaven???
He ran when I showed him Paul's words and I say good riddance!


Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
1 Cor 6
  
The sun makes water warm but God's word makes false teachers cold with the steel of Hebrews 4:12.

Free Table and Man's Fables

As I said yesterday; we got to stay in this awesome FREE camp site near a river as we rest up and do online ministry then go back out o the world to preach the gospel. As I walked up to the garbage can today I saw a table set right on top. I was just thinking yesterday how I needed a new sign holder and I saw this folding aluminum table and it was PERFECT!



So I pulled it out and all that was wrong with it was one broken edge that I fixed with two tie raps. Glory to God!
Now we use it at our campsite and it will hold gospel signs for the lost! I love free things of value but none matches our Savior who came to give us life and set us free!

Not a day goes by that I do not marvel at the foolishness of religious man, his lies and fables. Today I witnessed to a Baptist man who admitted satan started Easter and Christ-mass but, he keeps them anyway??? You cannot make this stuff up folks! Apostle Paul warned of these false ways in man made religion here:

And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
2 Tim 4:4

Do not follow the fables of man into sin and error. 
Repent and walk in truth! John 4:24 


I am tabling all fabling in my home, ministry and life for my God's glory!

River Sky and Pluck Out Your Eye

Another busy day witnessing and then after traveling we got a FREE camp spot by a awesome river sky in Montana:



I have encountered various people as usual who claim Christ but take a very weak view of leaving sin. It is shameful really and I fear for them all. I often wonder what bible they are reading as here is how Jesus my Lord dealt with sin:

And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.
Matt 18:9

Christ did not take sin lightly and I pray you will not either!

Repent and obey the gospel.....

I like red skies and I repent daily as I want to keep both my eyes!

Wilderness Van and Worldly Man

We were headed out of one town en-route to another and 
we drove our van through a beautiful Montana wilderness area with woods, rivers and mountains.



It is a nice benefit of a van dwelling preacher as we travel and we get to see many different sights across the nation. 

 As we were out proclaiming God's truth today, I had another man who claimed Jesus try to tell me that he is ok being in Christ and of the worlds ways! This always frustrates me as they cannot go to the Holy Word of God to make this claim yet, they make it still. They are lairs and in grave danger so because we love them we warn them. It rarely goes good and they walk away saying; "no I am good"! I challenge ANYONE to send me a verse that shows we can be of the fallen world and still be in Christ? Jim  / dontperish@outlook.com .... I shall wait for those verses?

  Till then I give you this verse:

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Romans 12:2 

Repent come out of the world, and obey the gospel! 

wilderness rides are great because so little of it is made of mans fallen world.

Car Camping and Carnal Creations

We held gospel signs and I street preached in a busy tourist town today in Montana. Afterwards we camped by a free wayside and I saw a well over 6 foot tall man crawl into the back of a little car to go to sleep. It is his car camper I guess....



Made me feel like a king sleeping in my full size van camper!
It is all perspective is it not?

As I was preaching on the streets of this tourist town and I took this picture:



It is shops full of worldly, immodest, carnal and ungodly garments and trinkets that people love and drive many miles for. As I preach, I try to lovingly warn my neighbor that being of the world and loving the world will damn your soul lest you repent and be born of God. 

See Romans 8:8, James 4:4 and 1 John 2:15 as warnings....

Go here to see some street preaching in that town. Thousands heard the truth and we pray many repent and find new life!

http://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/2020/07/street-preaching-in-west-yellowstone.html

our van camper beats a little car any day and holiness in Christ.... beats carnality in eternity!

Satan's Plan and a Stiff Neck Nebraska Man

We were out street witnessing in Bozeman Montana and a older man had this on his car:



It is a occult movement ready to bring all the worlds faiths into ONE Religion. It is satans plan to move the world into sinful demonic ecumenicalism. These world faiths have LITTLE in common with the biblical faith we know. It is all great deception and read the book of Revelation for details.

Sin and stiff neck ways are a stain before a holy God and often man chooses to walk in both. As an example; here is a post from a Nebraska man who lashed out (he twist's truth again) all because we lovingly tried to get him to walk in unity, holiness and obedience before God after he asked to have fellowship. I share this only as a example of what we men of God should NOT be: (angry, truth twisting, sin harboring, lying) Fact: There was NO barking of orders and we spent two days of our preaching time sitting with him to show we cared for him and his wife. We even offered them a new start in life to get out of their current situation and still he does this:





Sin is so very destructive in man's life!
Rather then sit and talk about God's Word and doctrines with brothers leading to unity; he took to posting that? So sad really but we love him still and pray he repents to new life and obedience in Christ. We are no better then this stiff neck man but; we who are born of God we MUST strive to be different. 

As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.
1 Peter 2;16

satan's plan will not stop me, unless my God allows it!

Cowhides and Calamity

As we travel we get to see all kinds of interesting things and this is one of them. 




Cowhides for sale......

Yep, in Montana... you can buy a tanned cowhide right off the street, not sure what you would do with it though? 

It does not take a wise person to see the calamity/state of the world as rioting, anger, hatred, fear and strife is growing. It is all due to sin/transgression of God's law. I hate to see the world in such trouble but it does bolster my faith as Jesus / God's Word told us it would be so before He returns. I am here to tell you that indeed the world will get worse and worse not better but I must also tell you the good news too. Did you know that you can have peace through it all if you are of Christ, born again by the gospel! 
Jesus said this:

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

John 16

Repent and trade your old life for a new one in Him with a great future. See the gospel here: https://www.dontperish.com/the-gospel.html


You cannot hide from all troubles but; He can give you peace!

Folding Water Pail and the Gospel Trail

I found an awesome folding pail we had been looking for to refill our water tanks with.



Just another small tool for the simple van dwelling life. 

Traveling on the gospel trail has many interesting ups and downs for sure. We get to tell of Christ's good news to all kinds of people, hear their stories as we see all kinds of terrain and countryside. Just today we saw awesome mountains ...

and I witnessed to a man who lost a 16 year old son in a ATV accident recently. It is an example of the joy/beauty of God's Creation and sadness/death that abounds waiting for mankind in this fallen world. The key to not be pulled down is to keep your eyes and mind on things above:


Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.  For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
Col 3:2-3 


this world pails in comparison to heaven and only the Lord's gospel trail gets you there!

The Perfect Spot and Mock God Not

After a day of street preaching, we rolled into a perfect FREE camp spot in a awesome city park.



 I had a picnic table, coffee, my computer to work on ministry and water to full up our tanks. How much better can it get on this side of heaven I ask?

As a street preacher I am so sad over those who claim God but yet MOCK Him in how they live daily. They say they love and know God but they are denying Him by their carnal daily lives. It is the love of God in us that longs to get them to see the grave danger they are unless they repent. It is why we go and preach the truth all over America. 

Repent USA, repent....lest you will perish! 

Galatians 6:7 - Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

finding a perfect free camp place is very smart but mocking a perfect Savior is very foolish!

A Place of Rest and Give Christ Your Best

So we rolled into another town to camp at a city park (free)
and I was taking a morning walk with coffee thinking on God. I saw this awesome place of rest....... 



It was in the shade and it seemed so inviting to me a weary road traveling preacher.....

That got me to thinking about resting in Christ ( Hebrews 4 ) and I ask, do we really give God our very best daily? I see so many people who are either dead to the things of God or they are claiming Jesus name but they walk as the world does, in sin and darkness. I would warn you in love about the great commandment:


Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

To love God... is to obey His Word. John 14:15 /  1 John 5:3

How you doing at that today? Not religion, not your ways or the worlds ways but God's ways in His Word? 
We are here to help you:

What a View and Dead in the Pew

We drove to the gates of Yellowstone park and held gospel signs as people went in and out. Then afterwards we took a coffee break on a pull off road and what a view we had!



No matter where we go, we are amazed and saddened by the dead-ness of those who sit in a pew each week. 
They are void of God's full truth/holiness and they lack a desire to DO God's Word. It is why we are at war with the man made denominational ritual Sunday church systems that produce these unbiblical carnal unregenerated souls that we must face on a daily basis. God's Word speaks of such people who are seemingly dead and void of but they have religious ways in them:

Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
Iaiah 29:13

 Oh how we long to wake up those dead souls but it is their choice and by God's spirit / Word that it must be done!


From our view, dead means in a pew!

Sandhill Cranes and Evil Reigns

We camped by an awesome lake and at sunset I got a picture of two sandhill cranes that had come in for the night. They are amazing birds and we are blessed to often see God's creation.


                          (look close to see them on the sand bar)

It is not hard to see evil is rising and reining in this land/world as lawlessness and hate grip so many hearts. Jesus warned us what it would be like near the last days before His return and you cannot deny we are close or there already. God's Word has many warnings in it about these very days like this one:

2 Tim 3


This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 

God have mercy and strengthen us to endure as the darkness grows all around His people!

Unlike those cranes we cannot just fly away from evil but Jesus promised us the victory... if... we over come. 
John 16:33

Fruit Smoothies and Fake Jesus's

After a long day of street witnessing and preaching, my voice is dry and hurting. Sister Debbie takes care of me with a $1.50 smoothie for us both and it is yummy! 




Today we encountered as usual many so called American Christians in the streets who claim a jake jesus. Why do I say it is a fake jesus? Because the false god they serve allows them to live a worldly, carnal, sinful and rebellious life not keeping His Holy Word and ways. That is a false jesus indeed that Paul warned about in 2 Cor 11:4 
For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

Just as God called Israel out of her sin and idolatry to know Him and gain eternal life, so must American claimed believers be called out of their lies and sin to repentance and be made new in Him. That is the only path to life vs a path to the wrath of God. Repent today will you? See the gospel here:
https://www.dontperish.com/the-gospel.html

fruit makes good smoothies but living in sin makes a bad false savior.

Mountains and Appointed Meetings

As we head west to some big street preaching tourist areas, we pass many awesome mountain scenes. God's creation NEVER ceases to amaze us!  



As usual; we pull up to our night camp spot and not 5 minutes later a man pulls up in a camper for an appointed meeting. He walks over noticing our gospel signs and a hour later we are still talking about God's truth in a parking lot. 



He was interested in truth and he commented many times how narrow the path to life is. There were signs that he may not be on it fully himself and so it was a joy to speak loving truth into him, a retired 67 year old man out traveling on his own. God is so good and He uses us in these appointments often that only He could line up. It is why we do not just sit on our porch back in Missouri all year but we GO for Him! 

This also reminds me of the verse that says:

Psalm 37:23
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.  

I am glad that steps were ordered, that this meeting took place and the gospel truth went out this day. Down the road we go to proclaim Him in the next divine meeting He has for us!

mountains are very hard to climb but following Jesus will ease your burdens!

Steaks and Spiritual Fakes 

We had the chance to have a free grilled steak at the lake 
stay we had and it was very tasty....



One of the things a person must be cautious of is spiritual fakes. This is the kind of man who is nice to your face but then finds every way possible to blame you as he walks in his sin and lukewarm lazy ways! It is so sad and men like this will reap what they are sowing in due time! I met one of this wicked men recently and while I love him, his leaven will NOT be allowed to infect my home or the saints I walk with. He got a stern rebuke and we pray he repents. Do not allow these men in!

2 Timothy 3:5 - Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

to a steak I say yes.. medium please.... but to a true man of God I say.... well done!

Camping and Christian Fellowship

We got to spend sometime camping with other saints on a beautiful lake setting....






We even caught some fish dinner....



What a joy it was!

We got to thinking about Christian fellowship and sadly it is NOT what most people think it is. It is not talking about the weather, hobbies or current events and such. No, it is the discussion/seeking of God in His ways and truth as we all walk it out in our lives. The conversation and time together is spent on and about Him mostly, NOT about ourselves or the world. It is not a social club or just good times with others. It is a time to draw close to saints and edify each other in His Word and work. If your time with others saints is NOT about that, it is not Christian fellowship but just plain fellowship and it is lacking indeed. Ponder that will you?

Ephesians 4
 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

We like to camp but; we LOVE to have biblical fellowship.

Locusts and Love of thy Neighbor

Have you heard? Swarms of locust are invading Africa in 2020 and causing devastation to crops. They may even bring on mass starvation some experts say.



The bible speaks of nasty locusts in the end times devouring things on earth. Are you watching the times we live in and is it quickening your heart to draw closer to God?

Revelation 9:3-10 - And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 

As we parked for the night in a large lot, I saw a man struggling to push his bags of groceries across the lot from his wheel chair. 



He was headed into the strong wind and it was a real struggle for him indeed as he headed home. I went out to talk with him and see if I could help. I also gave him the gospel and he thanked me and we parted ways. Every time I see those who are down, lowly or have great challenges before them, I remember that God sees the weak, oppressed and the poor from heaven. We need to see them too and then love our neighbor, amen?




































And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.

Luke 6:20

  I would hate locust swarms but; I love shining Christ's light to the lost.

Healthy Hotdog's and Holiness

So we rolled our van into our grandchildren's Wisconsin town for an awesome visit with them. I ask you what could be better then healthy hot dogs over the wood camp fire? 



As we travel, witness and preach and we rarely hear anyone use this word.... holiness!!! To be holy is to be set apart for God in purity. The fact that most people ignore it is troubling to us as the bible says without it you wont see God

Hebrew 12;14 
Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

We would encourage you to test your faith as if your not craving holiness, God's spirit may not be at work in you?

Here is an article on holiness to edify you:

healthy hot dogs are ok but..... holiness is heavenly!

Land of Beer and Stop Preaching Fear

We traveled through our old area of Wisconsin (known for beer and lots of drinking)




It was another day street preaching in a busy tourist town and it is never boring. Today we had mockers, small children waving, some giving approval, many ignore and some trying to stop me from a biblical call to repentance. One youth told me to stop preaching repentance and that fear has no place in calling people to God. I corrected him in love and I pray he repents of that wrong mindset to serve God in truth.  

We audio record and we make videos to edify and encourage other saints. Here are some samples:

I hope they edify you in the faith?

God calls us to a sound mind and repentance is the path to get there.

In Your Space and Drunk on Grace

Sister Debbie and I laugh at the many trials of van dwelling life. Even though we do just fine 99% of the time we do find each other in tight spots so we made a drawing about it:



 Out in the streets preaching the biblical gospel we find many who are drunk on grace. What I mean is they are set on living in sin and false ways as they claim God's grace will cover them. This is a huge corruption of God's Word and I must stand against it. Read this article Free Grace refuted:

My Old Slave Master and Time Goes Faster
https://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/2019/12/van-dwellers-preaching-christ-2020.html


Today in van dwelling life we drove by my old place of employment and I got a great sense of freedom as I am FREE from my old worldly slave master boss. Glory to God!



See this post about the 3 Freedom's you must have:
http://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/2018/02/3-freedoms-everyone-must-have.html

The longer we live and age, we see how fast the time is going. Every year goes quicker and we realize how much closer to eternity we are and it should wake us up! What are we after all, dust amen! We must use our time with wisdom and not take any for granite!

Psalm says it best....

Psalms 90:12 - So teach [us] to number our days, that we may apply [our] hearts unto wisdom.


Slave masters away and faster goes the day!

Forgiveness and Flowing Water

As we van dwell it is close quarters and mishaps often come that require forgiveness. Yes, brother Jim by accident broke sisters favorite container .....



I text her as she was in the store and while she was really sad over it, she forgave me asap and we laughed about it all. As Jesus said forgive each other 7 x 70....

Later we found ourselves by an awesome flowing river and I thought about what Jesus had said:

He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
John 7:38

Here is that water in a video I took just to share with you all!




forgiveness comes in Christ and rivers of living water He brings!

Buying a Lot and Slowly We Rot

I know a young brother who is van dwelling and will soon own a small lot then a tiny cabin, all debt free! How exciting and using wisdom God gave him!

Today we held gospel signs in a small town on the corner and a man who owns the tattoo parlor came over to heckle me as I was preaching. He was yelling, Jesus said do not pray on the street corners man? I was not praying; I was preaching and I told him Jesus commanded I do that. He had no answer so he walked away mocking us and then we noticed his shirt.



Slowly we rot!

How sad that most of the people in the world have no hope and they know their fate is a terrible one. God's Word has a great hope for them... if.... they would listen and repent!


For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
John 3:16-17
You must come via the gospel or you will rot in hell!

H2O Source and a White Horse

We rolled into a new town and searched for a free place to get wash / laundry water vs buying it. We could not find any gas stations with outside running water so; we looked for a local park with a beautiful lake



We found one, we filled up and we enjoyed the scenery till we headed out.


Jesus is coming back you know! 
In the past, He came once as a little peaceful lamb but he is coming back as a warrior! He will come and make war against evil on a white horse. Are you ready to meet Him?
(see the gospel at dontperish.com to be ready)

Rev 19

Revelation 19:11-14 King James Version (KJV)

 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.  His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.  And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

Sometimes we look for water but; we ALWAYS look for His return!

Coupon Buys and Wicked Lies

Sister debbie is a master Titus 2 shopper and she gets awesome coupons as we travel. Here is a example of what she can buy via sales and coupons:



.98 for all of that!
(she had coupons and the ice cream....that was a clearance item) I am blessed to have such a awesome keeper of the van!

We have seen a lot of wicked lies of late. So called men of God seem to think it is fine to twist truth of God to defame and slander other men. I warn them in love that God will not be mocked! Rev 22:14-15 says liars wont see heaven and Prov 6 deals with such men:


These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

20 My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother:

Repent of lies as it is the fruit of Satan, NOT godly men!

sister debbie sees all the sales; why cant men see lies and the wrath it will bring?

Rejoicing and Reckless Riots 

As we roll down the road I always say to sister debbie, may the Lord get us where we need to be. And when we arrive I am always rejoicing in the small blessings that God gives us like; safe travels.

Psalms 105:1 - O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.  
On this day, we rolled into a town, larger then the usual ones we drive through or camp at. Upon getting gas I saw a 9 pm curfew sign and asked the worker. Turns out there have been riots right in this area and looting. 



We parked in empty parking spot to get some shade to work on line and a police car showed up just to check us out. They were very kind and warned us about potential threat to the local Walmart that we would be camping in that night. (it was broken into several nights earlier) 

Just another day in the life of a van dwelling street preacher! 

This is all so sad in many ways. The abuse/murder of that unarmed man by a police officer in Minnesota was tragic. Also those who are taking to the streets to do crimes / riots are also sad as well. I have written about this in articles that explains..... there is NO racism. We are all one race created by God. There is indeed hate and sin but ONLY the gospel will address it! See articles on that here:

Back Yard View and Water For 2

Here is our awesome view for a night camp spot.



They are not always this nice...... trust me :) 

As we were out proclaiming God's Word on a HOT day near a busy street corner:



a man pulled up thanked us for what we do and he handed me two icy cold water bottles. If you know brother Jim, I rarely ever take anything from others as I do not want to be a burden. But sister is often reminding me, we do not want to offend generous people. So on this hot day, oh we took them and thanked him and hey really tasted good on our dry throats!

Who is the living water I ask you?


If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
John 7

There is no view like the one from behind a good gospel sign!

Free Food and Don't Be Rude

In our van dwelling life planning for food without eating out often is critical and it can be tricky. Sister debbie is really good at getting us lots of FREE Food coupons and we get to sample and try many new things that way. I am thankful about that as I like a varied healthy diet. 



God's Word tells us to be salt of the earth and to love our neighbor. But sadly we see many very rude people as we travel all over this land. We once were not so nice to others becuase we were all about US and did not care for others. But since we are born again, Christ gave us a love for all people deep inside of us. We now try to be kind and pleasant, no matter the situation. (yes, false teachers get stern rebukes still) 

Proverbs 16:24 - Pleasant words [are as] an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

What is coming out of your mouth? Sweet and kind or rude and harsh utterings? It is something to consider in light of God's commands to us regarding our neighbors. 


Yes free food and no to being... rude!

City Park Water and White Board Witnessing

So as you van dwell and travel, finding water is critical.
It gets pricey to always buy it so think creative. 
Hint: each town you stop at look for city parks/gas stations as they often have water spigots for free use to rv people and truckers. 



A nice perk is witnessing to folks you met and here is a example experience we just had:
http://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/2020/05/an-old-man-and-his-walker.html


If you desire to proclaim the good news to this lost and dying world (Jesus commanded we do it) here is an idea for you. 
A big white board can work then you write each time you go out what you want it to say:



Signs are a great way to get truth across, trust me! 

Always be ready to give a answer... 1 Peter 3:15

Free water is great but witnessing the gospel is more refreshing!

Reaping and So-Whating

Sister Debbie and I were talking how we put a lot of work into our little van house to make it road ready for our gospel travels and we have been enjoying/reaping the fruits of our labor. Example: cool air flowing through it and lots of storage and head space! 


                   (Another port hole window installed)

We run into a lot of people who will tell us they know they are in sin daily but they will not repent or forsake it all. We remind them of their eternal fate then instead of pondering the reaping and sowing truth in the bible, they will say so what we all sin right? The truth is God's saints do NOT continue on in sin, they leave it. Here is an audio I did on reaping and sowing:

https://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/2020/05/reaping-what-you-sow.html

we reap in van life as we sow truth into the souls of men!

Life Can Change in a Flash and Spiritual Trash

We were out in the van having a joyous day with a brother following us to a dent and bent food store. As we sat at a light waiting to turn, a little car went through a red light and a big pick up truck ran right into it from the side!



To our horror, a young child jumped out of the car running in the street and crying! Sister Debbie ran to go get and comfort the small child as I went to check on the lady. She was hysterical and had two babies in the back seat. I checked on them all and praise God they were unhurt but so very scared. I tried to calm the lady down till the fire and police men arrived. It was so incredible to see it happen and I had one thought after that accident. 

Life can change in a flash!!!

Note: If that truck had hit her about 4 feet further back it would have crushed her and her two babies for sure. 
Have you considered how your life can end or change in a flash?

James 4:14 says:
Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.

 We see a lot of very bad spiritual teaching in the world and we love others so; we warn them. I am amazed that people will be careful not to eat junk or rotten food but they will swallow spiritual trash at will it seems. How can you make sure your not doing that? Feast in Christ and you do that by clinging to His Word and not the ways of man and his invented religions.  See this 10 point test to hep you:
https://www.dontperish.com/10-point-biblical-test.html 

Life goes by fast; so cling to a saving faith that will last!

Brothers New Start and Refreshing the Heart

A young brother has moved from a far northern city to make his own way near us to be closer to saints and start a new now that he is following Christ. We worked on his generator for his van as he is both a van dweller and he is buying some land to homestead on. 




His new land gives him access to a private 2 acre beautiful lake to fish on for fresh food!


He has a great job all lined up as he transferred from up north and we are thrilled for him; so excited to see all that God will do in him. As a young brother of 22, he has shown more fruit then men three times his age. We praise God for his walk!

The christian walk is about getting a fresh start from your past sin but it cannot be lost we also must refresh our heart daily as we walk. How is that done? Let God's Word tell us:

Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.
Acts 3:19

For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.
Philemon 1:7

That I may come unto you with joy by the will of God, and may with you be refreshed.
Romans 15:32

Are you refreshing yourself daily in Christ, if not test your faith and repent to obey the gospel unto new life!

help a brother get a new start and you will refresh your own heart!

Goodie Box and Our God the Rock!

We are excited as we get to meet another van dwelling  brother moving to the area that we have known for a year but have not seen face to face. In order to welcome him, we made up a nice big goodie box full of awesome treats for him:




The more we serve Christ the more we see what a AMAZING Creator God He is! He meets our needs and sustains us daily in His mighty Word. He is the Rock of our salvation and we long for others to know Him; so we GO to tell His story!

Is He your Rock today and are you standing on His truth fully?

And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer.

Psalm 78:35

Smoke Alarm and Eternal Harm

As we van dwellers we trust in the Lord but we believe in using Matt 10 wisdom too. We have a smoke alarm to warn us if the van catches on fire, as we sleep.



It has happened to others .....

As we walk through our faith life, it is critical to others that we be cautious to NOT cause eternal harm. That harm could have various meanings like causing others to stumble in the faith, teaching false doctrines that decieive or not witnessing the gospel truth to warn others of the wrath and judgement / hell to come. If we walk in the spirit (Romans 8:1) and truth (John 4:24) that we will avoid causing eternal harm to others.

Go here to listen to some latest street witnessing we did in Branson Mo.

It's alarming; if our walk is harming.

A Rare Treat and Washing Feet

As traveling van dwellers we get the chance at many sales in stores. Sister Debbie is the ultimate shopper and she told me about a deal in Walmart so when morning came; oh I jumped on it! 

We like a good ice cream bar and there is none better then 
Haagen Dazs. But they usually run about $3 a bar and we just don't buy them for that reason. So check out this rare treat deal we got:




Yep, we each had .50 ice cream bars and coffee for breakfast



One thing nice about eating good/healthy 95% of the time, you get to have nice treats a few times and not feel guilty. 

Foot washing is another one of those events in the Christian world that man has perverted. Christ modeled serving each other and he foot washed others as it was a VERY NEEDY thing back then. They wore scandals and had dirt roads so their feet where always dirty. It was a real need being met as saints of God. 

Sadly today people in man made religion line up and do fake false foot washing ceremonies once a year, even thought they do not need their feet washed. (many wash their feet right before the foot washing service! Yep, how foolish!) They are blind to the point/spirit of it all. We are to help each other and serve one another. Today it would not foot washing but to aid a ill saint, change each others oil or go grocery shopping for them or cut someones lawn or chop their fire wood. Get the point? Don't get caught up in the letter of God's Word and miss the spirit of it all. Here is a article on foot washing to help you:

We like a good treat, we serve for other saints, but we don't wash CLEAN feet

Cooler Tip and Watch Your Lip

We are out in the world once again preaching the gospel and here is a quick and easy tip to make van life ice last much longer. We use a good thick cooler ( Lifetime brand $95 ) 




Then we drop in a $5 flexible cooler that the ice goes in. 



We place stuff inside the bag and we find our ice lasts twice as long. It even keeps even drinks outside the flexible cooler cool enough. Now we can buy big .25 cups of ice vs $2-3 bags. Just a cool tip for you ..... ;) 

Out in the world, we hear a lot of bad mouths and foul, hateful talk. God's Word says a lot about the lips/tongue and how dangerous they can be. Here is an article to remind us all:

Just Say Nope and Preaching His Hope

As we leave the peaceful quiet homestead and go off to van dwell street preaching in the dark world ( see some of our street preaching videos here: https://www.dontperish.com/witnessing-videos  )
 there is a lot of NOPES that need to be said. Here are some examples:
nope we cant bring that, nope that does not fit there, nope most people don't want to hear God's truth, nope flesh we cant stay here we gotta go tell Christ, nope I am not afraid of getting arrested / beat up or killed and nope we wont shut up!

Here is a sign we hold, as I preach in public and it reminds people to have to find HOPE their fear needs to be in proper order then seek after God in His truth, NOT their own way. 



We pray you are seeking Him daily in truth. 
is there http://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/ to help you and we will be reporting daily on our ministry travels and messages to teach and edify you. (click follow by email)

Metal Wagon and the Cast Out Dragon

As we were out and about in the camper van I saw something that I have never seen before.



Look close and see a metal Amish horse drawn wagon. Most of them are wood but this one was aluminum, and it was really nice. I am sure it is a one of a kind for sure in the area!

As the years pass and the last days approach, I often ponder what is the world headed into and how terrible it will be. Satan the cast down dragon is going to have a time of great wrath on earth then God deals with Him for good. Revelation tells us this:

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Rev 12:9

Look at all that is happening around us and see the signs coming. The world/culture is being molded and set up for the evil ones reign. He will make great war with God's saints and he will subdue the world as they submit to him, against God. Are you ready and do you know Christ / the Word of God enough to see the signs and be prepared spiritually? Unless you prepare today, you will not stand and die for Christ tomorrow. Just something to consider? 


Tie me up to a steel wagon, I will never bow to the evil dragon!
Christ is King!

Virus Masks and His Message

We have noticed as we travel and people are wearing masks it really changes a society and a human's demeanor. 



You lose the face/smile and it is hard to communicate. I think the powers that be like it that way. It is driving wedges between people and that will cause a lack of closeness and mis-trust in communities. Just what a evil new world order needs to over take and rule the masses. See my corona virus articles warning you of lies and giving the real truth here:
http://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/search/label/Corona%20Virus

The message of Christ is all about His truth, His cross and what He did for His people who will seek Him and obey Him to new life. The bible makes it clear it is foolishness to most and we see it all the time as we travel and I street preach across this nation. 

For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
1 Cor 1;18

A good question to ask yourself is are you a fool for the things of God (like the cross/gospel) or are you His, a fool for Christ ready to lay down your life and go to be with Him? Do not wait or delay as toying with your eternal soul is not a wise thing to do. Most people today do not toy with a deadly virus that kills only 1% of people affected. Do not toy with God who will judge 100% of all people! Seek God while He may be found!  See the gospel here: https://www.dontperish.com/the-gospel.html


No mask will hide your sin before God, repent and receive His message of the gospel!

Standing Up and Sitting Down

I finally got my van roof raising project done.



I cut a 5 x 4 foot hole in the van roof and added on a top section. Now we can stand up all the time and we can raise the roof 1 foot higher in like 30 seconds. Standing up in the van life, is an amazing but simple pleasure for sure! 
See my details/ with video's of this project here: 
http://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/2020/05/raising-van-roof.html

As we serve Christ daily going out into this dark and lost world, we really only want to things. 1) We want to here:

His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant....
Matt 25:21

2) we want to be home and sit down at our Saviors feet 
He made a way for us and we look forward to that day!

For now we are standing strong but soon we plan to sit near Him and rest!

Hot Shower Water and Good Fodder

Here is a good little tip for all you van dwellers or off grid homesteaders. A propane turkey cooker is GREAT to have around and I heat our hot shower water on it. And I only fill the tank maybe twice a year at $18 a fill.......



The term fodder is a old word used for the type of feed you give livestock. I would ask what type of fodder are we feasting on daily for our souls? Is it good pure and true (Phil 4:8) from the Word of God or is it if the world and man thus missing the mark for eternity? I encourage you to take in the fodder of God and reject the junk food of the world. Try it and grow up in Him!

 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
John 6:35

You are in real hot water, if you do not seek God's lasting fodder

Raising the Van Roof and Do You Need Proof?

Well, I am doing it and there is no turning back now! I started the project to make a raise-able roof area in our van mostly for cooking, changing of clothes and showering. 



Most commerical roof systems to be able to stand up in a van are like $3000 to $8000 dollars. I have budgeted mine out at about $225. It will be locked down for driving and when we stop to camp, I will just lift up the roof and canvas on the sides will give us standing room. Trust me it is easier to say it then do it and sister debbie gave me a interesting... kind of concerned look.... when I said I was cutting a 5 x 4 foot hole in your van. :) But she trusts me and I think I can pull it off. I will have a step by step process of the project on the van dweller tips page soon.
http://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/p/van-dwelling-tips.html  

How are you in your faith in Christ doing? Do you remember Thomas who had to see Christ's wounds in order to have proof / believe He was risen? I like what Jesus said to Him afterwards as it was aimed at all of us who believe by faith today:

Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.  
John 20

I believe He is raised up and our transformed lives is all the proof we need!

Multi Tool and God's Rule

No van dweller should be without one of these tools.



It has many useful instruments in one small package and it is great for the van dweller tool box!

In the crazy corona virus times (2020), I like to remind people that man nor a virus rules the day or the future. 
No, God alone does!
If you find yourself fearful and worried, it may be wise of you to ponder who the Creator God is (Jesus Christ) and how your life aligns to His ways or not? You can find Him in His Word and see if your on a path to be pleasing to Him or on the path the world is on, set for His wrath to come. See the gospel good news on this page and repent to be made NEW in Him. 

Here is a verse I use to remind people who is on control. 

Isaiah 14:24The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, [so] shall it stand:

My best tool is the Word and pointing men to God's rule

6 Feet Apart and How's Your Heart

I saw this sign and took a picture of it in Walmart. 



6 feet away will protect you from a killer virus huh?
It is hard to believe so many have fallen for all the hype and fuss made over a seasonal virus. Makes you consider something MUCH bigger is at play here. See my many Corona virus articles here that hint of what is to come:
https://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/search/label/Corona%20Virus


You can tell a lot about a person's heart by what they speak about on a daily basis. Jesus said:
 for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. Matthew 12

What do you speak about "most of all" in a day's time? (the world, news, money, yourself, sports or the Lord?)
Test yourself then make sure you are born of the gospel or you will be lost in eternity. See the gospel here:

I will stay 6 feet away but preach the gospel all day!!!!!!

Walking Stick Holder and Faith Smolder


So I have a walking stick with scripture on it that I use everywhere as we walk and preach. It gives me many witnessing chances and it helps a old man like me walk. 



But I needed a better place to keep it as it was always laying on the van bed. So I came up with (ok sister Debbie thought of it first) a plastic tube that mounts on the front of our van grill guard. It looks like this and it works awesome as a holder!



  Faith in God/Christ's work is what pleases the Lord and it saves us from our fate as fallen humans. I find it sad the state of American faith as it mostly smolders in most people I meet when preaching vs being a driving force that makes them live and have their being. The bible says God is a consuming fire:

For our God is a consuming fire.

Heb 12:29

If you are happy just smoldering in a luke warm unbiblical Sunday religious faith; in love, you will fall short of biblical salvation. Repent and follow Christ will all that you are!

Do not leave your faith in a holder, get walking!!!

Battery Jumpers and Bible Thumpers

No van dweller should be without good battery jumper cables to jump start your dead van. See my link on that here:
https://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/2020/03/recommended-items-for-van-dwelling-life.html


We often get called bible thumpers as we strive to live by its teachings. God's Word containers all we need to find eternal life and a godly walk in this life. Do not ever be ashamed of striving to be in and of His Word. Jesus said this:

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

I got a set of jumpers and we are glad to be bible thumpers!!

Cabin Guest and The Creator as Your Quest

We are excited to have a fellow van dweller / young brother moving to the area and he will be staying at our guest cabin till his land that he is buying is ready to move onto. We decided we had to make a better driveway going to the cabin and this pic shows the before and after. 



Nice huh? We are looking forward to his arrival! 

This life/world with all of its up and downs can really sweep a person away with the physical and we can forget about the eternal and the divine. But God (being the master designer) put in us the knowledge of Him. If we will reach to Him and shut out the world, He will show Himself to us via the spirit and the Word. Is the Creator your quest? Read Romans 1 and it tells us man is without excuse!


For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.

Do not be a fool. Seek Christ while you have time and see the divine design all around you and run to the Savior!  

I can build a cabin; but it takes a divine designer to create the awesome universe that we see daily.

Big Creepy Spiders and Sneaky Little Liars 

One day as we went to sleep, a small spider was making his way down towards are faces in the van. It was interesting for my wife to rest that night. Today I found this Missouri tarantula spider and showed it to sister debbie for a smile.....


       (I spray painted him yellow, that is how I caught him)

She was not so pleased :( ! 
I thought at least he was NOT in our van I found him in my shop, creeping around and I made sure he wont be making more spiders. 

I had a experience with a person lately who was deceptive and lied about themselves on email then went on to make excuses and continued in their back biting deceit. It made me think about how God HATES liars/lying. So much so He killed a husband and wife in Acts 5 over 1 lie! And it warns of it in 
Revelation 22:14-15 


 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
Please take this to heart if you lie or are keeping any lies like Christmas, Easter, Sunday false church traditions or watching movies full of actors that are liars etc etc ...

Repent and obey the gospel!

I can put up with big spiders but little liars, no thanks!

Natural Pop and Theological Slop

Sister debbie and I stopped a at food dent and bent place and I was happy to get some all natural healthy soda pop (I don't drink pop hardly ever) for only .40 a bottle. 



It was so good and I really appreciated it as a treat. (the pickled olive and carrots were good too)

While I enjoy eating healthy food for my temple, I am appalled at the theological slop that most people are eating these days. From lady apostles/pastors to false kingdom gospels, to Jesus paid off satan to save us to drinking Jesus real blood in communion. The enemy satan has had a great run at helping to create many false doctrines that lead people astray. So how can we NOT go that way? Get into God's Word (not mans theology books) and ask God to guide you to all truth via the spirit and if you are a child of God, He will do it. Take heart, truth does remain in this dark world and His name is Jesus. Go find Him in His eternal Word! 

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

John 1:26

a cold pop is refreshing to me but false theology turns my stomach!

Banana Pancakes and Heretic Fakes 

I got a huge treat the other day. Sister Debbie made me pancakes from over ripe banana's with blue berries and real maple syrup, yummy!!!



She is awesome at whipping stuff up and it makes life on the road so much sweeter. :) 

Psalm 119:103

How sweet are Your words to my taste!
Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

Part of my job in ministry is to warn others of the many heretic fakes out there teaching false doctrines. Here is one such anabaptist heretical group and a testing I did exposing them:

Lights and Pick Your Fights


I mounted some lights on the outside of the van. These are for if we break down or when parked being able to move about and not be in the dark. I cant wait to test them out but I need to get them wired first. 

In this Christian life, there are many fights we must choose or not choose. The battle of our flesh, the enemy satan and the world is one we MUST take on for God's glory. Other battles like against mockers, false religious systems or to hold on to our freedoms/rights are ones we must choose with great wisdom! Being in Him, the Word and the spirit will help you choose when to fight in the Lord/Spirit or when turn it over to the Lord. 

But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;
Hebrews 10:32


Christ the light will help you in every fight and..... we win!!!!!

Cheap Fuel and Don't Be A Fool

It is hard to believe but gas has dropped below $1 a gallon here in the USA as of April 2020. 



I never thought I would see this day again. I paid that much for gas in my teenager days 40 years ago. Sadly, cheap fuel is a really bad sign for the economy due to the global virus scare. 

The bible makes one statement really clear about who is a fool:
The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. 
Psalm 14;14

Not sure how anyone could ever be atheist based on this amazing world all around us!

I like cheap gas but I am NO fool! Something bad is on the way for the world so hold fast to Christ!

Emergency Drink and Sin Does Stink 

In van life you need to be prepared for everything so I recommend you have several of these on hand. 


The are life straws and you can drink right out of a lake or river with them for emergency water. About $15 each, get some!! 

Most people do NOT take sin serious and they seem to think that God has forgiven all sin in Christ. That is ONLY true when you repent and turn from your sins. It is sin that will destroy your faith life, mess up your daily life and send you to hell. There is NOTHING good or sweet about sin, it stinks
Only by reading His word and being born of His spirit can you really see the devastation of sin. I like to say if you are not running from sin, you are walking right in to it. 

Fresh water is vital to earthly life but being set free from our sin leads to eternal life!

Macaroni on the Road and Carrying a Load

Here's a simple tip for an easy meal on the road...macaroni and cheese!  Put the macaroni in a pan, pour in just enough water to cover it and bring to a boil.  As soon as it boils, cover it, turn it off and let it sit for the amount of time to cook it.  (Saves propane that way).  We got these for .10 cents each.




As believers while we're out preaching the gospel, we carry a great load.  The load of wisdom in God's Word which is a gift to those who repent and are born again but also a condemnation to those who reject it and that can be a sorrowful load to bear.





Macaroni is a light lunch but preaching the gospel in this evil world can be a heavy load.
(Good thing brother Jim put air shocks on the van:-)

Saint Down Under and Christ Is Coming Like Thunder



We are blessed to know a saint down under in Australia and it has been such a blessing communicating back and forth. We also learned that vans and van dwelling are also big down there as well, very interesting! 

As we live this life is this sin riddled evil world, it makes us ever more look eagerly for Christ's glorious return. Did you know how He is coming back?

Matthew 24:27 - For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

I hope you are born of Him and living for Him today as when He returns like thunder, He will receive His own but those NOT of Him; it will be terrible and terror unmatched to their destruction!  Read 2 thess 1:8-10

Repent and obey the gospel..... https://www.dontperish.com/the-gospel.html

We would like to drive our van down under and our Christ the King is greater then any thunder!

Recycled Step and For God a Yep

I finally got around to mounting the step on our van on the passenger side so it is easier getting in and out. 



Believe it or not, I found this step in the garbage can at a camp spot in Wyoming in 2019. I tied it on the roof and brought it back with us. ( it's like $150 to buy ) Sister Debbie likes it a lot as do I because we get in and out many times a day. She has some challenges physically at times and I wanted her to have a easier in and out of our van to help her. It is just another small detail to make van life functional. 

God was merciful and sent Christ to make a way for us to be forgiven of our many sins against Him. I always need to remind people that it takes us saying yes ( yep ) to what God has done and then Following Christ in the spirit and truth. 
( John 4:24) I find it sad but true that many people say YES to heaven but very few say YES to God in a daily flesh killing, cross carrying, life of denial, obedience and suffering for the Lord. What is your yes to God? Is it just what you can get or are you all in saying yes for what you can do unto the Lord for all that He has done for us? Ponder that will you?

 But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
Joshua 24;15

every day is a step and a yes to the Lord, if we love Him.

Water Jugs and Deceptive Thugs

I got our outside water system done on the camper van. 



Pretty simple as I just mounted a 6 gallon jug with a spigot for hand washing and a hose to a 3 gallon black tank on the roof for hot water when needed. ( the sun heats it up good )
Simple but effective indeed!

The amount of deception today is incredible. Almost daily I run into men who appear to have a heart for God on the outside but they have abandoned the truth of God's Word to follow fables, man made traditions and gross heresy. These men when approached with truth go into denial, get mean and nasty so I call them thugs! The bible says to AVOID them 2 Tim 3:5 and Jesus warned about false teachers in the last days:

Matthew 24
 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 

Don't throw water on thugs, toss God's Word on them!

Rising Moon and Jesus is Coming Soon

I was working on the van the other night and it was almost like day light at 9 pm thanks to a beautiful full pink moon over head. 



God set the moon, the sun and starts all just as they are you know. What a awesome Creator!

With all that is going on in the world, I see the signs of Christ's coming just as He promised He would. The corona virus is just another global issue being used to usher in world changes that will one day be used by a one world government and the anti-christ to rule the masses. If you want to know more, go to my page where I write about it all to warn and encourage you to repent then be born of Christ!

A Change of Season and Come Let Us Reason

We see it all over the homestead and when we go out. Flowers are out and you can sure tell the season has changed once again!



Thank you Father for your creation!

As we strive to preach the gospel and do ministry work, I am always amazed at the LACK of other wanting to talk truth among those who claim Jesus as Lord. Men who love the Lord should love to talk about His truth. Instead so often they hide as they do not know the truth or they are in sin and do not want to deal with it in the light!  God's Word encourages up to walk in the light and it also says this:

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
Isaiah 1;18

Before your sins can be made white as snow, you have to face them and repent ( forsake them ) and that is a daily thing, not a one time event!

We are ready to a new season and I love to reason in the Word!

Walmart Rides and Down the Culture Slides 

Sister debbie and I rolled into a store and we saw this mans Walmart ride a tractor and we smiled!!! 



As the corona virus grips the world with panic it is easy to see how down, fallen and sinful the culture is. Even though we do not agree with Sunday churches, I found it interesting they are all closed up while; the abortion clinics stay open? The times we live in are amazing and a warning is given in the Old Testament:

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Isaiah 5:20

Come soon Lord Jesus!!!! Are you ready to meet Him?

We like our van ride and we ONLY slide towards the gospel!!!

Raisin Cake and a Christian Fake

We are restocking the van and we found a tub of raisins all stuck together and I popped them out to re-bag them. 



Looks like a raisin cake huh? We had to cut them into chunks but it was fun and tasty too. What  a treat on the road!

As we walk ( or drive ) through this life sadly we run into mostly fake Christians. I say this as they claim Jesus with their lips but they love the world and man made religion more and they will sell out God's true people for their own gain. Jesus is a true Savior and when He enters a mans heart via His spirit, we are led to the word and the fruit will be holiness and obedience to God's truth, NOT ones we make up! Ask yourself, are you a true biblical believer striving for His Word and truth daily? Or are you a fake just set on your own ways or man made religion? Repent and obey Christ or you will miss eternal life to come. 

2 Tim 3:5
 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.


This walk is no piece cake and God is looking for real sheep not the fake!

The World is Dead and Christ My Head

We cant help but notice as we travel about, that the world in this virus panic is very different. Most people seem very dead and almost dazed / zombie like. 



Perhaps it is because there are scared and trying to avoid each other but it is very weird none the less and it is tragic. 
We wonder if it will ever be the same or is this just the new norm?

I am so thankful that I can rest in Christ, who is my Lord and my Head and my hope! Nothing can change that either; no virus, no economic depression, no illness, no prison nothing.
His body will go on and it will NOT be stopped or altered!
Need I remind you what Jesus said:

Matt 16 
I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.


We are far from dead and proclaim Christ as the returning Head!

I Got My Rights and We are Lights 

With all that is going on in the world, many van dwellers are being turned away for parking, struggling with places to stay and seeing camp grounds/parks close and such. You have to be flexible and persistent to be a van dweller; then realize rights can change over time. Plan and be prepared is all!



As born again believers we are to not hide or pull back in these times. No, Jesus said we are the Lights to the world.



You cant shine your light if you are hiding under a blanket can you? Be wise and be legal then if you know the gospel and you are living it fully, let your light shine to this lost and dying world. We only have so much time to live don't we?  

Matt 5
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

We think it is right to daily shine His light!!!

An Organized Van and Be a Man 

One HUGE tip to van dwelling life is being organized and as it will make your experience far better. 



We see those who live in total disarray and while that is their liberty, I am not sure how they find things or function in small spaces living as such? We are thankful our van changes are coming along nicely and we appreciate well organized as we make some of those modifications. 

I had a man who has been coming to me to talk bible truth and recently he took some strange shots at me (via a text) that he never mentioned man to man on the phone. I think it is both biblical and decent to address any issues you have with someone in a "upfront manner" vs texts, esp when you have a relationship with them to do so. Being a man not cowardly ( Rev 21;8 ) is the fruit God is at work in you and we all should strive for that men! 

1 Corinthians 16:13-14 - Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong

being well organized in the van is what I strive for as a man......

Generator Box and Fleecing the Flocks

I have finally got our new generator box done that houses our generator, battery, tools and many other things needed in our van life.



I will have a post showing the progress pictures and all on our Van Dweller tip page and you can see it there tip #25:
http://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/p/van-dwelling-tips.html


I have watched as the corona virus has moved around the nation/globe and caused so many to act out in foolish and unbiblical ways. One area is that modern pastors who are Rev 21:8 cowards. They are so set on following the governments plea to NOT associate / gather they are fleecing the flocks of any remaining truth they may have. Since they are 501c3 registered they are sinfully untied to the state as puppets! I am all for obeying ruling authorities per Romans 13... UNTIL... it affects our service to God. True saints ( like those who lived in the first century under cruel Rome ) will continue to gather biblically to serve God NO MATTER the situation around them, even if they have to go to jail and suffer. Do not be a modern day coward Christian but strive to be a biblical obedient saint of God! That requires you are born of Him via the biblical gospel. ( see it at the top of this page ) Today's modern pastors are hirelings and deceivers!   

Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
Acts 5;29

our generator makes clean power but modern pastors fleece flocks with corrupt power!

Rarely Straight and the Narrow Gate

There are a few tips to help the situation and we will post them on the van dweller tips page very soon:
http://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/p/van-dwelling-tips.html


Most people do not realize how narrow the gate to heaven really is. Jesus told us that FEW would find it in Matt 7 so I did a article to really show you how few that few really is using. God's math examples from the Old Testament and the New you will be amazed. Read it here:

Ready to Roam and Fellowship at Home 

The life of van dwelling is now deep in us and we are getting ready to roam down the gospel road again soon. We are anxious to go but; enjoying our time of less travel and being able to get things done and more study time in the Word. 



With the corona virus shutting down the world, man made church buildings are closing, ( one very good thing about the virus ) it is good time to test God's design vs the man made denominational Sunday system that is very false. I have a link that will help you expose the lies and show you how to BE the body of Christ to fellowship at home. Here you go and let me know how I can help you? https://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/p/home-ellowships.html

Change of Plans and In God's Hands

One thing in van life you learn is to be flexible and adjust even if we do not like it. We had plans to be on the road traveling across the country but due to the corona virus, we had to adjust those plans, just for a bit. It has given us time to get a few things done we needed to on the van and refocus on the task at hand. Lord willing we will be back on the full time road soon, even as we still move around locally. 

With all the turmoil, it has also given many a chance to refocus on what life is all about and where to place your priorities moving ahead. 


  
The virus threat has shown us that this life is so fragile and it can all come to an end so quickly. It would be wise to take a look at who or what you have placed your trust in for the days ahead? Is it money, your own talents, science, the society or is it God alone? 

Proverbs 3:5 - Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 

Our plans are to stay in God's hands...

A Brothers Van and a Just Man

I know a young brother who is striving to set himself free from the worlds ways and he is getting a van ready to be a van dweller / maybe even travel and preach the gospel with it.


It has been a blessing to see him grow in Christ and strive to obey God. He has left family and ventured out on his own trusting in God fully. Honestly, he makes so called believer men 3 times his age/experience, look weak and lukewarm in his zeal. God desires more such warriors for Christ just like him. 

As we see the events play out all over the globe and the world collapses in fear over Corona virus, one man comes to my mind a lot ( besides Jesus ).... Noah!



He stood alone in a wicked generation and did not care who was with him or against him. He did what God called him to do obediently and he was found to have grace ( favor ) with God.  

Genesis 6
But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LordThese are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.
I can tell you this. I really want to be a Noah like man in my wicked generation..... how about you? ( and we do not have to build ark do we? ) Lets all strive to example Noah's faith in God and that will glorify the Father! 


Just because you have a nice van, does not mean you are da man! Being JUST with God sure does though!

Soup an A Perfect Savior

Just because we are van dwellers and live off grid when on the homestead, does not mean we do not eat well. Check out this vegetable cabbage soup sister Debbie made us. It was  yummy!



I need to remind you all no matter what this world is going through (virus or not) we have a Perfect Savior ready to SAVE all those who will repent and come after Him ready to surrender their entire life. It is what we live to preach. We urge you to get right with God today by the gospel via the Savior Jesus Christ. Place your faith in His finished work, repent of all known sin, be made new, obey in holiness as fruit and endure in a saving faith till the end. That is the path to the Savior. You do not get there by church going or trying to just be good. Say, are you on that path today? 

Luke 1:47 - And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

Good soup comes and goes, but they Savior remains forever!!!!

Van Project and Vile Pagans

I am working on a van modification project of late. We wanted better dry storage on the top of our camper van so I made this one:



We can store a lot of goods up there now and they stay dry. Hey, if you want to see the project as it progressed, go to our Van Dweller Tip page and look up tip #21 with more pics:
http://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/p/van-dwelling-tips.html 

The truth is mankind is very sad when it leaves the truth of God's Word and follows false traditions of men. As proof; see this picture of a Orthodox priest making holy water:



He is standing over a water tank and he is dribbling water over; a dried out human foot, yes a rotted old foot!!! They believe it is a holy saint and that it has power! It is totally vile and pagan and God hates it. Then when he is done blessing it, the crowds rush in (almost crush each other) to scoop up some water to take home as they believe it has power for them! 



Jesus talked about men when they make up there own false ways and He said when you do that you worship God in VAIN. See Mark 7 / Do you worship God in spirit and truth or vain rituals? I will stick to following the bible/Christ for my hope and power and not pagans, thank you very much! 

We work on projects but we DO NOT work with pagans.

Pot Holes and Anabaptist False Preachers

We put a lot of miles on in the van dweller life and thankfully it is usually on good smooth roads. Well not today as I think I lost a filling or two on a road we traveled as it had like 50 or more 12 inch deep potholes and it was not fun!!!




I recently had to deal with a anabaptist false preacher man about truth and it was VERY sad. He has changed his stance on divorce and remarriage so many times that he no longer can see any truth in other areas. I love him so I lovingly rebuked him 1 Tim 5 but he rejected any correction. This cartoon sums it all up really:



Repent Jamie, repent lest you perish!

See these articles that expose many of the anabaptist false ways: http://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/search/label/Anabaptist%27s%20Exposed

PA Speakers and Peace

Brother Jim got a PA speaker for the van that connects to the CB radio.

 I can now preach to the area/people around our van, where ever I feel led too. I don't think that will make me any more like-able huh? 

As we live out our days in these very troubled times, we hear from people who are struggling and very scared. We have flesh/feelings too and it can be stressful but; we know the cure! We are to be wise ( Matt 10 ) seek God, obey Him and not live in fear. We are to look to the Lord, the Author and Finisher of our Faith! Do you have the peace of God no matter how the world is crumbling around you? Did anyone of you think you would really live here on earth forever anyway?   
Seek Christ, He is faithful.....

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
John 14:27

I am a walking PA speaker and our God gives us PEACE!!!

Deer and Do Not Use Queer

Yesterday I posted a critter camouflaged in some brush and asked find it?



 Well here it is right there after it walked a step of so....



A beautiful deer. Isn't God's design amazing how he clothed the animals and fitted them to their environment?

As we travel and van dwell, we run across some (not many) street preachers. Sadly almost always they demean and smear Christ's Holy name by their actions. One such way is them calling out names to the people of the world like homo, faggot or queer when preaching. This is sinful and it was NEVER done by Jesus or Paul when evangelizing the lost world. We are called to preach the gospel, warn of sin and entreat the world to repent and come to Christ for hope. How can we do that if we call them mean spirited names I ask? Do not use stern words for the world ( save those for false teachers and use biblical terms then too ) but use your voice to be salt and light in a lost generation I say.  And thankfully, so does the Word of God say that too.

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Matt 5:16
   
We used to hunt deer but now we hunt for places to tell sinners the good news.

Camouflage and Corrupt Preachers

As we travel in van life, we love to see all of God's creation and often you have to look very close to see it as the Creator gave them great camouflage. In this picture, can you find the critter?



Stay tuned for tomorrows van dweller post to see the next picture and the critter right there in it.

As we do ministry, I want to warn you of many corrupt false men out there that claim to be godly preachers. Here is a picture of one such man who is worldly, unbiblical and hypocritical in many ways. 



Here he has on a biblical tunic/robe like robe as a STUNT just to preach on youtube! In real life he dresses like the lost world and has even made fun of me for how I dress daily in a tunic. He preaches a false gospel and claims to heal people as he takes money for it all. Men like this must be tested to God's Word and rejected or they will deceive you. Do you know enough of God's Word to know who to trust for eternal truth and who you should run from? If not, you better get studying! We are here to help you. (dontperish.com)

2 Tim 2;15
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.


False teachers have NO camo, to hide from the truth!

Trump and Trespassing 

We have heard a lot of claimed Christians on the Trump band wagon of late, as politics seem to drag so many down. We have removed ourselves from the entire situation as we see ourselves as citizens of heaven first, so everything fails in comparison. 

As we drive in van life, it is NOT uncommon to see the NO trespassing sign on land all over. 



This tells people to stay off other people's property. In God's eyes, trespassing has a very different meaning. To trespass against God is to SIN and break His holy law. What will you do for all the trespassing you have done against the Lord? The good news: Christ made a way for you but you must come via the gospel or be lost!  
https://www.dontperish.com/the-gospel.html 

We hope you stop trespassing on God, repent and serve God today as you will then be a child of the Most High and have the hope of eternal life to come!

Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the LORD.
Numbers 31:16

We used to trespass against God but now we are His, waiting to hear the Trump of His return!

Sunsets and No Frets

No matter where we are we love to see the ending of a day and watch God's awesome creation unfold in beauty and splendor.



Here is one such sunset we recently enjoyed an wanted to share!

This life is always riddled with many woes and tribulation so much so it causes men to fret. We like to remind people that our peace cannot be rested upon our circumstances or our surroundings as we will always be tossed about then. Who are you and I rooted in, and built on, so we can be victorious and NOT ever fret?

 Matt 7;24
Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:


we do not let fret, come and set, on our day! God be praised

Crustaceans and Foundations

We rolled into a town and sister Debbie went into a grocery store. She sent me a picture of some crustacean crawfish on sale. 



We laughed as the store was all out of toilet paper ( corona craze ) but your can still get crawfish!!!!

Later that day, we got a call from some folks on the east coast. The man used to study with me but he left and I had not heard from him in a year. He called and his wife was concerned about corona virus and the worlds state. He had not progressed very far in a year of following Christ as he had some salvation theology very wrong. We had a nice little bible study with the husband and her to reassure them they need to be focused on their foundation in Christ first, not a virus or the media. We pray they build a strong foundation in Christ then, no virus or world event can shake them! 

We will pass on the crawfish but; MORE of Jesus please!!!!

Organizing and Sympathizing

On the road we do see some really interesting cars / vans and how people live in them. 



While we are not like the picture; we are taking the chance to do some modification and re-organizing on / in our van house. We enjoy the challenge of doing much with a very little! We will have some pics to share once we get there.

A good fruit of God in you is to have sympathy for others. I 
( Jim ) admit that I have had to work on that one in my life.   
Dealing with all the homeless we have met while in van life has helped me in that area a lot. Oh, I know many are there for their own free will, choices and sins but I do realize but for the grace of God / situations, there goes me! In truth, I am not better then them at all but I have been made different by God's Spirit. Let us NOT look down on others but have a heart for whatever situation they are in today and always, 
tell them the truth in love. 

When pride cometh, then cometh shame:
but with the lowly is wisdom.


I ( Bro Jim ) am so un-organized, Sister debbie has to give me sympathy!!!! :)

Beauty and Brokenness 

In the van dwelling life we got to see up close so much of Gods awesome beauty/creation that I cannot even describe it in words! Here is a picture we took in Wyoming.



Glory to our God for His creation and what He SPOKE into existence!!!

We also sadly get to see a lot of brokenness / sin in the world and troubled times like today ( corona virus ) only magnify it. Men are wicked in the heart ( See Jeremiah 17:9 )and because they are far from God, they live out their evil onto others. Near us last night a man killed 4 people with a gun, then himself. This world that God created to be beautiful; is so very broken due to sin. How do you view sin yourself? Are you clinging to the ONLY remedy known by God for its fatal affects on mankind, new life in Jesus Christ? 
Repent and obey the gospel.

John 10:10 
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.   

We see the beauty of our Savior and we preach Him crucified to break the brokenness!

Panic and Power

So we rolled into our latest town in Missouri and as we walked in a local store, we saw that due to the panic of corona virus the shelves were emptied.



It is sad that people have a mindset that allows the government /  media to control them and play off of their fear, greed, ignorance and flesh as it does. This causes them sadness, stress, worry even violence and none of it is of God.

As born again followers of Jesus Christ we rejoice that we have the POWER to walk in a circumspect way that is both peaceful, calming and God honoring. How can we do that even in the midst of all the trials that everyone else is facing? Simple really, as we have the spirit of the Lord in us and He gave us this:

Ephesians 6:10 - Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

What are you walking in today ....Panic or POWER?

We wont panic as long as we cling to our power source, Jesus!

Terror and God's Timing



The world is being gripped by a terror known as corona virus.
I really do not have any confidence in the media or government's information. Because of that, I cant tell you exactly what it is or is not? I do know that it appears to be stirring the up the world and many people are walking in fear, not peace, truth or the wisdom of God. I have thoughts on it all and over the next days will be writing/teaching about it at our teaching blog from a biblical perspective. 



God's timing is always perfect and we are so thankful for that. I always wondered how we; as van dwellers, would be affected in a global crisis as the world is freaking out. I want to report that God is so good and that after many thousands of miles preaching, we were right where we should, be at this time..... Glory to Him!!!!
I am not sure what the future holds? But we are resting in the Fathers will and excited to press on for the gospel sake. We will NOT fall backwards in fear as eternity/death is coming soon, corona virus or not. Are you ready for it? ( see the gospel path to life at dontperish.com  

“Now therefore fear the Lord and serve him in sincerity and in faithfulness. Put away the gods that your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. 15 And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lordchoose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Joshua 24

we have no terror and we are redeeming the time. Eph 5

Discount Bread and Spirit Led

As we van dwell, we get to go to many different stores and we always look for discount items. Our favorite is day old discount bread! 



We eat bread in many ways with soup, peanut butter/jelly, sandwiches or just plain with cheese, yum! 

Being a traveling preacher, we encounter many people who want to CLAIM they are of God but they have very questionable, even sinful fruit. They like to quote Romans 8 to say they are just fine no matter how they live:

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus,  

But they never finish that verse as it tells a true story:

who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Romans 8 goes on to say that the flesh leads to death not eternal life! We love our neighbor so we must tell them that if you are living in your flesh/sin, you are condemned already by God. 

Please repent and obey God as fruit that you are of Him. 

We do not live just by bread; but by the Spirit & Word.

Sheep Within and Soft on Sin 



As we travel; we see many places, meet many people and here many stories / life situations. In this we see ever more that people are really SHEEP within. A good example is the corona virus situation. Most are ready to quickly follow along with false info and many silly or deceptive ways of the fallen culture/media. (like stock piling items as TP paper) just because! How foolish they are. But it is good to be a sheep of the Lord and follow Him. If you follow others/man, they will deceive you and you will be lost. Please; do follow Christ not man and his false ways! 

Jesus said in John 10:27
 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me 

As we got to a new town; a man came up to me and said I heard about you. It seems he heard of my street preaching from others and we had a long talk. The result was sad as he was SOFT on sin and I did my best to wake him from his spiritual slumber. You can read more about it here on my 2020 Witnessing experiences:
https://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/2020/03/soft-on-sin-sabbath-man-2020-witnessing.html

We are His van sheep and we follow ONLY the True Shepard .... Jesus Christ !!!

Propane Fire and Biblical Attire 

We learned today how quickly fires and disasters start. We are back in the mid west getting a few needed things done then we are off up north. We were heating water on a propane turkey cooker and we walked away thinking it was fine. 
I came back minutes later to see the hose melting and the propane spewing out with a huge flame that was raging. I was able to shut the tank off and put it out asap. If that flame was near anything flammable, it would have started a huge fireWe were so thankful it did not happen. 

As we walk through our van dwelling life in this fallen world, all for Christ, our biblical attire comes up often. I always tell people that God put humans in "tunic like dress" in Genesis 3 and He NEVER changed that did He?


Christ shed His blood to redeem/cover us and in Genesis 3, God killed an animal ( shedding blood ) to cover humans up. Do you take that serious today? Most do not! 
Here is many articles on that topic:

Unplanned fires "bad" but biblical dress for the Lord
is very good!

Van Life and My Godly Wife



Since so many people are interesting in the van life, we started a Van Dweller Tip page and already have many simple articles in it:
https://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/p/van-dwelling-tips.html

We will be adding to it often and we hope it encourages those who are interested/called to this simple but rewarding / life, serving our God!


The bible has much to say about a godly wife/woman and I am blessed to have one. I have to be honest and say there are times in this van life with the difficult ways I may have, it tests my wife, sister debbie. ( I need to do better.... ) 
Yet I always see her rise to the occasion to remain a good godly wife. I can only hope to ever reach her ability to obey / kill the flesh and deal with such a difficult spouse. 

But then, I do not have that problem as I have a RUBY in her; thank you Lord!!!! 



Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
Proverbs 31:10

We love the van life and I love my RUBY wife!

Logs and Letting Go

In the years after I was a salesman for a billion dollar company, I took up chainsaw carving to support sister Debbie and I in ministry. I recently saw a log truck loaded with big logs and it took me back for a second to my old life as a  wood carver.



I did enjoy parts of that work but to be honest I do NOT miss it one bit and we have let it all go!!!

Jesus talked about looking back and if we do that; it makes us UNFIT for His kingdom to come. 

Luke 9:62
And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

I am just as human as the next man and I must fight to NOT look back. We have left and also lost so much of this life, in the flesh, oh it would hurt deep. But we are walking in the SPIRIT per Romans 8:1 and the more we walk for Him the further that old life weighs our minds. What are you walking in today and are you for for the kingdom of God? Repent and obey the gospel for new life now and eternal life to come!

We let go of the old life / logs; now we are focused on heaven!

Dogs and Doctrine



Praise the Lord!!  We made it back to the Midwest and are excited for spring and then summer preaching of the Word!

As we van dwell and travel we see many people out with their dogs. ( we used to have them on the farm ) In this culture, they have risen to a status of much more then just an animal and it is sad. We know humans put so much joy and attention on their dogs. (I like dogs but they are just animals.) 
As an example, I heard about a dog who alerted his home by barking and they were saved from a recent tornado. The story was all sad in that the dog died as they survived and the dog got all the praise! I see it as God getting the glory for His creation that makes a dog bark when there is danger. Today the creation gets the glory NOT the Creator and isn't that what Romans 1 talks about?

Romans 1 
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

 As followers of Jesus, we know how important doctrine is to be in truth. Did you know that doctrine just means instructions. Most do not want or have good doctrine but how can you follow God without His Holy instructions? 
Here is an article on doctrine for you:
  https://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/2019/10/doctrine-matters.html

We don't have a dog we hold but we do hold to God's doctrines!

A Hawk and Holiness

As we entered a new state headed north in the van, we were going 55-60 mph and I saw a red tailed hawk swoop down from a tree and land in the grass with his claws extended. 



Within a second as we passed by, he jumped up to fly off and he came across our wind shield. I tapped my brakes just enough or we would have nailed him. In fact, I heard his wing feathers hit the top of the van and thankfully sister Debbie saw him fly off just fine. He was so close in our windshield, I could see he had a mouse in his claws! The Lord's creation is so AMAZING. This hawk had seen that mouse in the grass from like 150 feet away.... on the other side of the highway. What a Creator God He is!!!

I had a witnessing experience with a man and he was upset when I informed him God's Word says we MUST/will have holiness if we are born of God. He wanted to live in sin and go to heaven. It is so sad that Sunday churches teach you can just believe, go to heaven and how you live is NOT important to God. That is a huge lie. Holiness is to be set apart for God ( not sinning ) Are you born of God today and desiring holiness as fruit you are of Him? See the gospel to eternal life here: https://www.dontperish.com/the-gospel.html

Heb 12:14
Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

Those born of God are hawkish on holiness to glorify God.

Tennessee Tornadoes and Truth

We were working our way north in our van and we almost headed towards an area to witness at a religious body. I decided to go to another one down south and a terrible tornado (killing 24 people ) ripped through the area we would have been in. 



We were so thankful to God we just missed that huge storm as not much is more un-nerving to "mobile van dwellers" then; a tornado! We are very sad for those who have had their lives taken or affected by it's massive destruction as life is short and so fragile!

Life and death always make me think more about God's truth that gives us hope and life. Did you know the word truth appears in the KJV bible 224 times and it is NOT just a word but it is JESUS Himself? Do you have the truth today?
See the gospel at dontperish.com to find that path.  

John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 8:32
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Truthfully; we avoid tornadoes but we cling to Christ, our truth.

Dalton, Devices and Deliverance

We had a great visit to witness in Dalton, Ga and now north we van dwellers go!



While there, we saw these scanning devices for grocery shopping. What will they think of next??? 


Sister Debbie and I were just talking about the joy we feel because God has delivered us from so much. We lived very sinful past lives before Christ and every day we live for Him in obedience, those past days seem so far away, Glory! 
We are not ever going back and every day it is a joy to serve our King in spirit and truth! So who are you FULLY serving? 

Psalms 18:17 - He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.

We have Dalton in the rear view mirror, a GPS device on the dash and God is delivering us daily right to those who need truth, all for His service and glory.

Warning, Winter and Witnessing

Once we find our parking spot for the evening we usually take a walk. The other night we were walking through a shopping complex an warning alarm went off (apparently someone got too close to the doors or something).



The alarm was a voice, loudly saying "Warning, Warning, you have violated a restricted area!" Brother Jim said that there would be a lot more conviction and less sin if there was a loud alarm on sin also!

That night we had a taste of cold winter weather (we are traveling north) and appreciated the coolness compared to the heat and humidity we just left.




We're out on the gospel road, traveling and witnessing.



The word of God is a warning alarm to the religious people who laugh and mock it. 



But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.
Ezekiel 33:6

...down the gospel road we go, sounding the alarm of God's Word, working our way toward more winterish weather and witnessing along the way.

Cool Chair and Church Hireling Exposed

We were on a short walk to stretch our legs and we saw this very neat driftwood chair for sale.... 



As is the calling of a biblical street preacher/evangelist, I went to a man made religious place and proclaimed gospel truth outside as I also exposed a church hireling ( false pastor ) who is deceiving people. If you are interested and want to see some videos of him getting called out and as usual he had NO biblical answers, go to this link:
https://bewareoffalse-unbiblicalteachers.blogspot.com/2020/02/rock-bridge-community-church-dalton.html

Hauling Heaps and Heaven

We arrived safely in a new town and we saw this car hauling a heap of stuff as we were out and about:



I have to give the man credit as it looks like something I would try to pull off!!!


As time passes faster and faster in our lives, we can't help but think of HEAVEN to come. What a glorious day it will be to face our Savior face to face!!!! Are you ready to that day of joy or will you hear.... AWAY I NEVER KNEW YOU? see Matt 7.
Repent and obey the gospel then STRIVE to enter in:

Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
Luke 13:24

We ain't hauling nothing to heaven with us except our faith and love for God!!!

Cracker Jack, Cracker Barrel and our Creator 

I had a flash back to my youth when I saw this snack in a food store. I ate Cracker Jack all the time..... about 50 years ago!!!



When we roll into a new town we are always thankful for a nice place to stay. Did you know Cracker Barrel restaurants allow you to camp there over night at most of their stores. ( they have awesome biscuits too....we get those "alone" when we camp there as a great cheap snack... ) 



Lastly as winter gets ready to let go off the nation, we are excited to head north then west. We see a lot of beauty of our God the Creator all over the nation but it is hard to beat the mountains out west! If He wills, we will preach the gospel at busy tourist places out there once again in 2020. No telling where we may end up? That is one of the joys or van dwelling life; FREEDOM!!



 I can eat Cracker Jack, drive to Cracker Barrel and still think about our Creator and His awesome mountains; all at once!

Rainbows and Rest in Christ

We had a nice drive north to our next town even though we had rain here and there. Then as we were just parked we saw some sun and what comes then?



An awesome rainbow of course. They always amaze us and it is a promise from God to not flood the earth ever again. See Genesis 9

Our drive in the van was longer then normal and we will appreciate the rest we will get tonight. I often meet people who tell us to keep the Saturday Sabbath as our rest. But the truth is, we are keeping the Sabbath rest every day as we REST in Christ and His finished work. Glory to our amazing Lord and Savior!!!

Heb 4:3
For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.

rainbows mean no more global flood and His death burial & resurrection means, we can rest in Him!

Church Van and Victory in Christ

We rolled into another town and as we stopped for a break, we saw a church van, a African Baptist church van??????



Man and his foolish church groups / names causing more and more sin and division! It is shameful per 1 Cor 1:12


Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?

We travel to help set men free! ( John 8:32 ) 
But we see so many today living lives of loss and defeat daily. 
The life of a true biblical believer is NOT about defeat but about victory in Jesus Christ. It is via what He has done for us that we can and should rise above it all. One of my favorite verses:

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 
1 Cor 15;57 

we are still in our van and oh, we have the VICTORY!!!

Fowl and Floods

The Walmart we parked at last night had a nice pond across the street filled with fowl :-) Ducks and geese.  Brother Jim told me to buy an extra loaf of bread so we can feed them.  (We pay less than a $1 on discount bread.)

How peaceful...






We are currently working our way through Georgia and seeing a lot of flooding...



Thankfully we haven't seen any houses flooded with water but we do see a lot of false teachers flooding into people's homes to scratch their itchy ears.  


Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
2 Timothy 4:2-4

Therefore a good reason reason why we are out here sounding the warning alarm and sharing the truth.

The false teachers may cry 'fowl' when given the truth but down the road we go, sharing it!

Big Rocks and Bad Religion

Many of the Walmarts we overnight camp at, in our van dwelling life, have these big huge rocks near the parking lot entrances.



Why, you ask? It is to keep big 18 wheeler from coming in to park over night but many still do it. (They often run up and over the curbs to make the turns so the rocks prevent that.)

Being in ministry, we are daily faced with the false bad religion all around us from the cults / denominations that have been handed down for many centuries. Jesus said we must be in SPIRIT and TRUTH to worship God / John 4:24

How can you be in truth if you are keeping many man made denominational false ways we always ask? It is a question you must answer if you plan to be in and of Christ.

Cabbage Leaves and God's Love

We traveled and were amazed to see so much produce like these cabbage all over down south. 




We are blessed to van dwell, travel full time and we get to spread the truth / LOVE of God all over the nation. But sadly; many are very confused on what that love is? Is it a feeling, a heart felt gushy way towards God? Is it going to church, keeping a denomination, instrumental music or a romantic whim towards your Creator? Or is it a thankfulness for God sending Christ to shed His blood to get you out of hell? Actually, the bible describes what it is very clearly, if we will only read it in the Word. The LOVE of God is what Christ did in John 3:16 ( His shed blood ) Then; how do we respond to it? How do we show our love for Him? Loving God means.... we OBEY His commands!

For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
1 John 5:3 

How are you doing at OBEYING God and that is all of His Word?
dontperish.com will help you with many teaching resources 

Yes, we like cabbage but; we LOVE God and we obey Him!!!

Weird Vehicles and Violence

Sister Debbie and I took a walk as we arrived in a new town to van camp. We saw this strange low rider truck and


It was literally lowered to be setting on the black top, very strange vehicle huh??? We laughed....

As we travel to preach and I teach the Word, we see and hear about violence in the land. It is in sports, the news, video games, talk in politics, topics like abortion, movies and even the cultures music. I am reminded about the days of Noah when God flooded and judged the sinful mankind. Jesus said it will be like that in the days before he returns. Noah's culture was known for it's violence

Matt 24
But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Are you ready for Christ's return one day or your death then your standing before Him? Repent be made new and obey the gospel.


Our van is not very low and Christ's return will deal with mans violence once and for all.......

Birds and Just Believing???

As we van travel we seem to find lots of birds every where we go.



We like to feed them old bread and up close these plain old black birds are not plain at all. They are purple and green and blue, just amazing creations they are; and smart too!

Lately I seem to be running into a lot of people who have the idea that just believing in Jesus ( head knowledge)  is enough to gain eternal life? Not sure where they get this idea ( man made religion of course ) because if you read the FULL Word of God you will see we are called to NOT just believe but also to REPENT, BE BORN AGAIN / FOLLOW and OBEY and ENDURE to eternal life. We teach that path to eternal life here: https://www.dontperish.com/the-gospel.html

God's Word say's this:
Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
James 2:19

Do not just believe folks. 
No, you must repent and obey the gospel to eternal life to come...  

We like the birds; but we LOVE believing and FOLLOWING Jesus Christ much more!

Noisy Nights and Not Picking Fights

Van dwelling gives us a lot of different experiences that aren't always fun, some of which are noisy nights.  Last night, for instance, there were guys blowing garbage into piles so the street sweeper could pick it up and a man was driving around, blaring rap music while emptying the garbage cans.  (They're just doing their jobs and we're still thankful for a place to park:-)

And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
Colossians 3:17



When we go out on the streets to witness, brother Jim preaches while I hold a gospel sign and hand out gospel cards.  There are usually a lot of mockers and haters but brother Jim doesn't allow them to pick fights, nor does he instigate them himself.  Sadly, there are many street preachers that get caught up in the flesh and end up on the edge of a fight...


(The preacher on the right is threatening to punch the mocker on the bike because the mocker licked his ear when the preacher foolishly went to hug him. Yes a lot of strange things happen out on the streets.)

You can see this street preacher exposed here.

Brother Jim has encouraged him to repent.

It's noisy here, we avoid fights and we're moving on....

Hairy Trees and Having a Home 

I have noticed down in the southern states, lots of the trees have more hair then me! 



Ok, so it is moss really but they sure look hairy

We, as van dwellers, have had to readjust our view of what a home is. I mean birds roost under branches, mice live in holes, chipmunks curl up in knot holes in pines and yes, people live in cars, a van or rv camper. 

We met an older lady who has decided to live in her car in a Walmart parking lot. 

She has shelter, safety, warmth, food close by and she seems to like it with her car as her house. We have chosen to live in our van ( we do not have to ) and it has enriched out lives to stripped us down in so many ways, it would be hard for us to go back. We do find America to be very comfortable, spoiled, soft, distracted and full of bread ( pride ) as the bible says sinful people are. The word of God tells us what we should be content with:

And having food and raiment (clothes) let us be therewith content.
1 Tim 6:8 

How are you doing in contentment?

  I don't have much hair, but we have an awesome van home!

Parking Lots and Perverse Politics

We camped at a Walmart parking lot and it was one with the most RV units parked we have seen since far out west in Montana. 



It is a political year in 2020 and many people we meet are talking about it. It is sad as mans corrupt politics never really change anything yet people like to have great hope in it all. I used to be political but thankfully my God rescued me from it all. My hope is in Christ!!!!!!

Feral Pigs and Florida Preaching - Good Bye

We were driving down the highway and we saw some of these interesting critters.


Wild pigs out feeding on a sunny day. We even saw a bunch of baby ones...how cute! 

As we worked our way north we finally broke out of Florida....



 Then we remembered all the wonderful travels we had preaching the gospel all over that state. If the Lord wills, we will return one day but for now it is north we go!!!!

Psalms 91:11 - For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.


We don't eat much pork but we do like Florida palms and produce!

Bays and Boo's 

We van traveled to our next street preaching place and we saw this awesome peaceful bay near the ocean....



When we got to our spot to preach ( a busy tourist street ) there was a roman catholic church there.



I stood and preached the truth about that corrupt unbiblical system of man that cannot save you. I got boo's from some people who attend there and defend it. Sadly they do not defend Christ and His truth so they will be judged and damned lest they repent. That is why we go and tell them the truth. You can see some of that street preaching here:
https://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/2020/02/street-preaching-st-george-st-in-st.html


We hold the mockers at bay and we do not give a boo what they say!

Deals and Decoys

As we travel and van dwell we strive to be very frugal, always looking for deals to save us money in the future. 


Here is one of those deals! We like to use paper bowls to save on water but they are pricey. Well we got these on clearance for about 80% savings so we grabbed a bunch to last us awhile. This saves us a lot and allows us to buy gas to  GO and tell the gospel more!  

As we arrived in our van into another town, I was walking through Walmart and I saw this turkey decoy from far away and he looked very real to me. 



But up close I could see he was nothing but cheap plastic and a total fake! This is a lot like man made religion on Sunday. It has truth and can look like God's real thing. But; if you will look close, you can see it is a fake designed to fool you. Satan is good at that and he is full of lies! This link proves to you the many lies of denominational faith systems so test yourself: https://www.dontperish.com/youve-been-lied-to.html

We are not fakes and we find eternal life in Christ is the GREATEST deal ever!

Fruit Smoothies and Feminists

Sister made us a delicious smoothie from frozen fruit and coconut milk. What yummy treat on the van life road!



We also received an email all the way from Australia. Some man wanting to correct my ministry but; he best test himself. We did a few minutes of research and learned his wife is a so called pastor. This is sinful and so how could I ever take biblical advice from him? It is a common sin today and we teach the truth on our teaching blog to help such people, if they will seek truth. Look up woman pastors are unbiblical here: https://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/

Paul said teachers in the body are:
 the husband of one wife
Titus 1:6


street preaching / van life aint always a smoothie but; we love the taste of it still!

A Unique Bus, Baby Gators and Beautiful Birds

Living the way we do allows us to see many unique things as we travel. One was a gigantic bus that had been turned into a home.
Brother Jim had some communication with the owner, you can read about it here: http://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/2020/02/titanic-bus-joel-constable-exposed.html



After we left that area and traveled to preach at some events, we were able to see some baby gators and beautiful birds.   







(You can see more on the sisters blog here: 
https://titus24sisters.blogspot.com/2020/02/gods-creation-baby-gators-and-beautiful.html)



And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
Genesis 1:20-22


The gators didn't get us so we're going down the road...

A Flute and the Root

We van camped after a long day of street witnessing and as usual this van life is NEVER boring. First we had a noisy camper running his 2 loud generator's ( yes two! )  then a man in a large van next to us was playing his flute, yep!



Note: He later moved so my fears of him playing all night went away. We still love the van life as it is a flesh killer for sure. 




As I street preached during the day, I talked about the importance of having a root in Christ for eternal life to come. So many people today have a belief in Jesus but NO root so they can go deep and produce fruit in Him to eternal life. How about you?


“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.
John 15


I can't play a wind instrument but I am rooted in the Him ....

Rules and a Ruin

We parked our van in a city park to witness the gospel and I noticed this rules sign. 

Interestingly, all the people seemed to know them and abide by them or they know police would come and ticket or arrest you. Seems simple enough for a child to understand amen? 
As I preach the gospel in the streets, each time I am amazed at how Americans, even so called Christians, REFUSE to obey God to their own ruin in hell one day lest they repent. 














































































































































































But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
Luke 6:49



They seem to believe they can sin against God over and over without any judgment to come. It is so sad but it is the calling of a preacher to remind people of God's wrath to come and tell them the good news of the gospel so they will repent. It is a burden and a blessing to carry and may God make us strong to withstand it all. 


the van life rules and we strive to never ruin our faith in Christ!

Sandhills and Sinful Super Bowl Heroes


We saw this awesome creature a sandhill crane just standing outside a coffee place looking in the window, I think he wanted a donut!



Then way back up north in Missouri, I heard about a sinful Super Bowl parade that took place to celebrate the Chief's football trophy. 



Here is their QB hero celebrating.... 
I raise this topic as it is a PERFECT example of why we are out here van dwelling and telling God's truth all over. This man Patrick Mahomes claims to be born of God yet; he lives like the fallen world and partakes in the vile NFL games, that God hates

Luke 16:15
for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.

Also in the parade, I heard he was acting all rowdy and pouring beer to a team from the top of a double decker bus, how godly! And I later learned, that Mahomes lives "in sin" with his girlfriend who is not his yet wife. Yet America lifts him up as a follower of Jesus? How many youth he will deceive? This is why we go and keep teaching God's truth as so many are so very deceived!   


In van life, we celebrate God and His creation, NOT mere men!

Street preaching and Teach'n



Since we travel and I street preach full time and I have learned some things. So I thought I would make a list of tips and tools for godly men who strive in this important and challenging ministry.  You can find that here:

And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

Osprey and Odd Campers

We stopped in the middle of our traveling the other day to make some lunch and as we were leaving brother Jim pointed out an Osprey nest on top of the sign...


There's actually a town not far from there called Osprey.  Very awesome creation from our Father in heaven!

For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
Romans 11:36

We also get to see some unique / odd campers out here:






We are rolling down the road and oddly enough, there are some witnessing events up ahead!

Good News in the Sky and Time Does Fly



As we street witnessed at a huge event, a plane was pulling a sign in the sky that said........ Jesus is coming! 
( it was different for sure ) 

 In the morning, as we drove on and were making plans for our next preaching event in this van dwelling life, I saw a old picture and I flashed back to late fall 2019 in Missouri.



 It was 10 degrees, nasty outside and we had just weathered an ice storm one night! I was amazed to realize that was 3-4 months ago! We are now planning to head north slowly as spring comes and it shows me how this life / time sure does fly!!! We will all soon be dead, as life is fleeting. Are you ready to stand before God? If not, run to Him via the gospel: https://www.dontperish.com/the-gospel.html

Romans 14 
So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God

we are still flying with the good news, but we have no ice in sight!

Workers and Walking Sticks

After a long day of street witnessing the next day we too a peaceful walk and saw a site with workers building a parking garage. 



I was amazed how one piece at a time they building this huge structure and it took lots of diligent work, one piece at a time.
I was reminded that us men need to be about our own faith walk building that way day by day but sadly, few do it. Most men start up then end with unfinished building that decay's away. 
Hold fast and build men in obedience.  

Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught

Titus 1 




As a van dwellers, we get to meet many people and I get the joy of sending out walking sticks as the Lord leads me to do. This one was shipped out recently and we pray it is a blessing to the man as he walks after Jesus!!!!!





we are not always walking but we are driving on in our faith ....

Swat teams and Super Bowl's

We traveled a long way to go preach at a large event and while there; we saw lots of police and even a swat team in full force!




Yes, the event we traveled to reach at was the 2020 Super Bowl in Miami. 

I street preached outside of it for many hours. So many people did I preach to and so many on the road to their demise before a Holy God! The Lord was glorified today but sadly it is to these peoples condemnation. We pray they repent, while they can. 
Here is a link to a short video of our time there:

Sugar Cane and Lasting Pain 

We were driving a long way to get to the next preaching event
and we saw these fields of green crops that went on for many miles. 

We wondered what they were and when we learned it was sugar cane and it was pretty interesting to us as we never saw this plant before! We get to see many new things in van life......

I also want to report that sister Debbie has been struggling for a LONGGGGG time ( years ) with some lasting painful ailments that at times that come and go and take quite a toll on her. 



While that is hard to deal with, I also have to report that as she endures and strives on through it all, God ALWAYS gives her what she needs for each event or situation we encounter! I have seen her strength, zealousness, discipline and endurance for Christ grow much in the midst of painful trials and isn't that exactly what God's Word says will happen if we endure?

  But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle
1 Peter 5:10

Let me praise my wife for her perseverance ( her life married to a van dwelling traveling street preacher is NOT an easy one!!!! ) and I am blessed to have her as my partner in ministry all for God's glory!


van life is really SWEET even as we drive down pain avenue .......

Hot dogs and Homeless

We went to do laundry and we saw the smallest hotdog stand EVER!!!


It was like 3 by 4 feet ( tiny ) and no I didn't buy one. I wanted too for sure but I do not need one.

Romans 8:8
 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

Later in the day, we camped out at a night stop and there was another homeless man camped out in his tent across the street. 



I walked over to talk with him and leave the gospel good news for him. I could not help but notice that all over his camp site ( he is camped on someones else's land by the way ) are food, trash, cigarettes and many many beer cans littered all about it.
Here is the point, until he decides to repent and wants to leave his sin, you can't help him except to remind him of his sin and the Lord's wrath waiting on him, till he repents. People like to give money ( they buy booze with it ) and food and more food but they really are not helping these men. They need to get to their lowest low and then repent unto Christ. The gospel is the best and most loving thing we can give them.... Glory to God!

we like the taste of van life, hold the ketchup please ........

Cheese and Choosing

A brother in the Lord blessed us with some wonderful cheese...



We chose to eat them with some natural crackers...what a yummy, healthy snack.  Speaking of 'choosing', we all make choices in life.  The best choice to make is to believe in Christ and repent so that you can be born again.  We talked to a young woman this morning who is striving in the things of God and has a lot of choices to make in her life...we hope she chooses wisely.

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

Pretty Ponds and Politics 

We were blessed to van camp near a nice lil pond last night it even had ducks peacefully swimming and feeding in it. Ahhhhhhh.....



Also the other day... while out preaching, a man was upset that I do not vote as he was lifting up Trump. I reminded him of the corrupt nature of politics of today and that Trump is not my hope or focus. He was not happy with me but he got lots of truth.....

Husband/Wife and A Hypocrite Life

Sister Debbie and I took this picture by the ocean and it is a favorite of mine. Oh the joy to be husband and wife living the van life. Thank you Lord!




Later that day, I saw this man as we drove into another town and he is proof of many who have a hypocrite focus in life. 



Many people are hyper focused on some sins like divorce or sodomy or abortion. Yes, they are sins but those same people will ignore their own sins like false religion, lust, worldliness or in this mans case, gluttony! We need to stand against and flee all sin in our own life then we can speak out rightly against it in others. 

Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
Matt 7:5

we are pushing on in the van avoiding Hypocrisyville as we go!

Pentecostals and Pole Sitters



We were driving to our next town and I saw some men sitting by the road with a 4 foot bible and revival signs. I stopped to talk truth with them and it turns out they are unbiblical pentecostals that like to follow false signs and emotions vs biblical truth. I tried to get them to see their error but ended up rebuking them as unbiblical false; even evil men. 



We made it to the Atlantic ocean and I was amazed as there are so may sea birds of all kinds. What really surprised me is there is not a pole around that does not have a bird sitting on it. 
We are blessed to see so many awesome sites and God's creation as van dwellers traveling all over to preach the gospel!!!

We are sailing on, but not in the ocean .......

Scenery and Sacred Name

It's been a very busy week for us on the road, preaching the gospel...praise God!  In between street preaching we seek out a place to park for the evening.  Oftentimes it's a busy parking lot but on rare occasion we find a quiet spot such as this one, in the back of a restaurant that welcomes travelers.



There's a river right behind those palms so I asked brother Jim to turn the van around at dark in case any unwanted alligators wandered up by us:-)

Today a man walked up to brother Jim had him look out the window at his truck...




Turns out he belongs to the unbiblical 'sacred name' group and wanted to talk about the name of God but not the gospel.  You can read about the sacred name group here: https://bewareoffalse-unbiblicalteachers.blogspot.com/2020/01/sacred-name-movement-exposed.html

Sign Holders and Swedish Campers


We keep seeing many businesses using signs out in the streets to drum up business. It just encourages us to know that hand held signs really DO work! But we hold them to spread the gospel good news not to make money!


1 Corinthians 1:17 - For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel


As I was out working by our van, I saw this huge unique camper from Europe and I got to witness the gospel to the man. They had it shipped over here from Sweden to Canada and they are traveling the USA and may become citizens here. We get to meet and preach to so many interesting folks... glory to God!!


                                       ( me by this rig for you can see the size of it )

We are do not have a huge rig like this but our van is a TANK and we are moving on!

Alligators and Accidents

The state we are traveling through is (one of many) known for alligators.  This sign warns about the potential dangers of alligators in the water but unfortunately people don't always heed that warning and end up being killed by the wild animals.  It reminds us of Hosea 4:6 where the Israelites ignored God.




My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

While we travel, there are times we see accidents.



It's a stark reminder of how fast a life can be taken and we pray that the lost will surrender their life and seek truth in God's Word.  

We didn't go near the water and have been blessed not to be in an accident...onward we go, praising the Lord!

Converted Campers and Catholic Pagans

As van dwellers we get to see many nice and unique camper units. Here is one we saw in Georgia, nice huh? 



After we walked today, not far from the ocean, we saw a roman catholic religious building where a guy was paying bag-pipes. 




It is so sad as so many are deceived or they love this man / satan made system that cannot gain you eternal life. It is unbiblical / pagan and it has a false gospel. See this link that proves it in the scriptures:
http://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/2014/01/roman-catholicism-vs-gods-word.html
  
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

Polite police and Pelicans



What a busy few days we had. We witnessed outside a Franklin Graham crusade and we had wonderful "polite police" to deal with. I always honor the police and today it was awesome as God's truth went out. See this link about that witnessing event:
http://bewareoffalse-unbiblicalteachers.blogspot.com/2020/01/witnessing-outside-franklin-graham.html

 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

Heb 12:14



We also got to stop at a fishing pier and we saw the most amazing pelicans being fed by a local fisher man.  God's creation is so amazing we never grow tired of seeing it at work. 


Still not arrested and ......on we GO preaching the gospel!!!

Luxury and Long Paths

As a van dwellers we do not get much luxury so when we get one I will report it. We wanted a better/quicker place to wash hands and such so I sought out a good option and this is what I found: 


A simple water holder from Walmart for $3.33 that sits on the back rack of our camper van with a on / off spout. Now we have a ready hand wash up station that we can refill & it is much easier and quicker then what we ever had. Ahhhhh.... small luxuries!

At the end of the day, we took a walk and we ended up on this long long path that went nowhere so we had to turn around and go back. We took this picture as the night lighting made a nice shadow to say hello to all the saints out there striving in the faith!


                                          Jim and Debbie

It ended way out in a dark area, past some swampy water and at night it was kind of creepy, especially with alligators around. It reminded me of the many long paths in my life that lead no where and most ended up leaving me in the dark. We are so thankful our path lead us to new life in Christ and His eternal light that breaks all the darkness. What path are walking today and does it lead to His light or the eternal darkness?

If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
1 John 1:6

We drive a 1996 van, luxury there is that it gets us everywhere we need to go and it has a cozy bed!

Partiality and Popsicle's

We got to stand outside a large religious event of Franklin Grahams and I preached the gospel truth to thousands of people.
It was amazing to see the partiality that was shown as they ignore the many sins of Billy / Franklin Graham's theology to embrace their easy believe sinner prayer gospel and fleshly music offerings. Read about it all here at the testing of this false man:
http://bewareoffalse-unbiblicalteachers.blogspot.com/2020/01/franklin-graham-exposed.html  

I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.
1 Tim 5:21

Then right at the end of a LONG day, many hours of preaching to all those lost people, a small Spanish man came along the sidewalk pushing a lil popsicle cart and I could not pass it up as my throat was dry. They were tasty...... 



I was thankful for a small pleasure, as God was so faithful this day and His truth went out to the masses!


Van dwellers drive on and even famous false teachers cannot stop God's truth from rolling out!

****************************************************************************

Jan 12 2020 


Van dwelling life is certainly unique in that you never know what your night camp spot will be like, until you get there.  Oftentimes the overhead parking lot lights will shine right in the windows and no matter where you move. They shine in your face while you're trying to sleep with open windows for air flow. It doesn't really bother me too much but brother Jim likes to wear these blinders so he rests better, when light is right in his eyes.



As we travel from town to town, we come across many beggars and because we love our neighbor we give them a little packet of food (we call them beggar bags) to go with the gospel-good news.  You can easily make some up and have them on hand.  ( On our gospel card is the good news of eternal life and our phone number with the offer to help them get off the street )



While few really want to repent/change and get help, we offer it for God's glory.



Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great commandment.
And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Matthew 22:36-40

...brother Jim's driving us down the road but never with the blinders on!

Right Turns But Wrong Faith

As we drive in new areas of the country, I always notice subtle differences in road rules. Down south there is A LOT of no left and RIGHT TURN ONLY rules and it makes you go around a lot of blocks just to get where your going!



But new areas do not change the fact that America is VOID of the true biblical faith and it is flush with wrong / false man made denominational religion. Want to see why that is sinful and why those systems have lied to you? Go to this link for the truth and test yourself: https://www.dontperish.com/youve-been-lied-to.html

Praying Signs and Traffic Fines

We see a lot of these lil signs stuck in the ground down south. Not sure who is putting them around?



It may be a nice thought but the truth is, unless your are in Christ, God does not hear the prayers of sinners. See John 9 
Repent and be born again then God will hear you.... via Christ!

As we drive, I see many people suffering the wrath of the police as they are pulled over getting a ticket/fines.  I am thankful we have adopted a NO RUSH life as I drive under the speed limit. This will eliminate MOST of my chances of a ticket but I still have to abide by all the local laws don't I? 
How are you doing abiding by God's laws as grace does not cover sin you keep doing?  

For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
1 John 5:3

we may be slow but still; away we go......

Fan Boats and Beautiful Moats

I woke up and on my morning stretch walk, I saw this unique boat camped out near us.



Its a boat run by a huge fan and it is common in the far south of the USA.

As we drove to ship a package to a brother, we saw this beautiful moat like water feature and with the clouds, I thought it was awesome!!!



We are blessed to see so many beautiful things and we rejoice knowing know our Father created it all!!!!


 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
Col 1

  we are off in the van and our goal is... to not hit the WATER!!!!

Home and Hopeless Old Music Man

I saw this tree as we traveled and I snapped this shot. 



Do you see it? Look close, really close at the top! What is sitting there? Yes it is a bird making it's home in this tree. It made me think about how home is really where ever you make it and we make our home in a van :)

2 Corinthians 5:1-10 - For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 

 Later in the day, I got the chance to witness to a 80 year old man who heard me reading a bible verse to sister Debbie. He walked over and I gave him a gospel card. We talked and he claimed to be of God but I could see warning signs. For example, he was NOT interested in talking about the truth of the gospel / Jesus but he was all about gloating on his instrumental music abilities! I tried to enlighten him about how false and fleshly today's intrumental music is but he was not interested in that or the gospel truth. It made us sad as it was obvious he was not transformed by God but just following a hopeless religious system of man that tickled his ears and flesh. If you are BORN OF GOD, you desire to speak of Christ and the gospel and you love those in the faith. How about you???

  we got "no instruments" 'cept the ones on my van dash board!!!

Tarp Tents and Good Sense


As we walked through a parking lot, we saw this beggar who made an interesting tarp tent (to stay out of the elements)  pulled by his bike. Not a bad idea as the weather here is usually very mild.

Psalms 61:3 - For thou hast been a shelter for me, [and] a strong tower from the enemy.

If you have ever traveled you know about all the planning, wisdom and just good sense that comes in handy. We have been tweaking our camper van as we go and learning what TO do and what NOT to do. Sister Debbie and I have lived very interesting / varied lives so that is a blessing in going into this van life. One example is water is always a premium and we get free ice for the cooler with gas fill ups. We then recycle that water to be used for washing up or clean up vs just dumping it out. It just makes good sense! 

we are wiser and cruising on.....

 Hot and Humbleness

The weather down in the SE of the USA is really something. It can go from cold at night ( 34 ) to sweaty HOT in the day. ( 85 )  
We are enjoying it though as people are out and about more and that is why we come south to get to preach in public places.

I got a real dose of humbleness today. 
We had a leak in one or our storage totes on the van and I had to take a bunch of stuff out to dry it in the sun before getting it stowed away again. We were at Walmart in the parking lot and often we see the homeless / car dwellers / beggars doing similar things but in the hopes someone will give them money.

Well, as cars drove by, I had my stuff sitting out and I realized, they were thinking I was a scammer  / beggar! ( I was just drying stuff ) I had to reset my mind and say, who cares!  :) I smiled as if they knew our bank account, they would see the wrong judgments they were making about us. So be it....

Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
John 7:24

In this materialistic culture, MOST are trying to be something or put on a big show yet for the Christ follower that would be prideful and sin. I like being lowly as it makes me humble. 
   
We are now dry and ready to fly down the gospel road....

Produce and Preaching

Today, we got a VERY rare treat. As we drove down the road headed to the next town... we saw this sign on a trailer?????




We had NO idea what they were but, we looked them up online and went back asap for....



fresh produce!!! 
I like fresh fruit and these were like mandarins and right off the local tree too.



WOW, were they tasty and such a great price.....
( and the orchard man got the gospel too )

Then we went into the next town and asap, I got to preach the gospel to a wonderful ex muslim couple. Read about that event here: https://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/2020/01/witnessing-to-ex-muslim-couple.html

Not sure how it gets much better then that.....
Produce and Preaching and we do not deserve this simple life. 

Thank you thank you Lord......

Colossians 4:2 - Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;

I do have sticky mandarin fingers but,
 I can grip the steering wheel better now.....

Walking and Talking 



As van dwellers we park and then walk a lot. When doing this you become aware how easily it is to be run over or killed, in even slow traffic. People don't drive all that careful in this fast paced world. We have to be ever aware as we are out and about or we may pay the price as cars are out there lurking. Isn't that a lot like the faith walk as a enemy is out there trying to get at us. 

 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
1 Peter 5;8

  Next, I did an article on talking/words not long ago and I have been really trying to make sure every single one of my words are edifying and pure. (Even saying something meaningless like "can you believe how that man acted towards us?"... it is pointless really) This is a hard thing but killing the flesh and words is vital to a holy walk in Christ. Tame your tongue men or you will have much strife in this faith life, amen?

my mouth is more quiet but our van is roaring down the road.......

Tattoo's and Touchy Neighbors 

As we rolled on, I met some men selling the things of God for a false ministry called Life Changers Outreach. They do help people off drugs but they do not teach them to do deep into God's gospel to eternal life, truth and holiness. One man had many tattoos and was selling shirts like this.
  
This is a lie as God commanded against pagan tattoos in the OT Word. So sad. Here is a testing that exposes Life Changers:
http://bewareoffalse-unbiblicalteachers.blogspot.com/2019/03/lifechangers-outreach-exposed.html

As we hit a new state, I was unsure if this was the right destination but we learned fast it was. Not 1 minute after pulling in, we met a man and I had an awesome 3 hour talk with him about the things of God. It was wonderful. We did encounter an ANGRY lady, in a RV, yelling at us  who did not like us talking about God ( it was only 5 pm ) so we moved to talk elsewhere. Most people HATE to hear of God's truth, so it was a joy to have that talk with a man who loved the Word. 

John 15:18 - If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before [it hated] you.


slow and south we go!

Living Small and Truth is Tall 



Today we did some organizing......
When you live small in a van with another person, you need to plan, be organized and pay attention to detail lest you will have caused yourself many undo trials. This is the same with the faith life in Christ and it is why we like living small. It is great practice to live a uncluttered, disciplined and spiritual life, all for Christ. 

God's truth is a tall order to live up to and to teach to others but we are called to it. Jesus said STRIVE to enter in, it is not easy!! We have had to kill a lot of flesh to be able to follow after Christ in spirit and truth. This is why we go and proclaim Him and His truth to all. 

John 4:24 worship in spirit and truth

2020 is here and we are ready to roll!!!!
