                               ( 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 / selling most all of our things using our money to go proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ and His glorious kingdom all over America and assisting others. 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!


Below you can read about a few daily / biblical topics and interesting little experiences related to "van dwelling for Christ". We will be adding to it daily as we go and as the Lord wills!

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

I van life you have to get used to sleeping on angles as it is rare and a real blessing to often find straight level spots all over. 



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:
http://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/2020/01/few-means-few-matt-7-part-2.html


As van dwellers we are driving right through that narrow gate!!!!!

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 

we do like to roam but we are never far from home (heaven)

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

I HATE pot holes but; we love anabaptist's. We pray they repent!

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:

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

We love them all and pray they repent....

Christ is seated with the Father and in my van, NO hirelings are NOT allowed on board!

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. 
Dontperish.com is there to help you come out of all the false ways. 



He is our ROCK and He is our pure religion ( James 1:27 )

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.
http://bewareoffalse-unbiblicalteachers.blogspot.com/2019/01/torch-of-christ-phillip-blair-exposed.html

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

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.

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!

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.

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

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!!!!!

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:

Jesus said.....
I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
Luke 13;3


Yes, life on the road, preaching the gospel is really SUPER !!!!!!

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.
Joshua 24:15

We have chosen to roll down the road to another destination soon...

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.....
Here is a link to articles on politics and believers:

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


...we're rolling down the road to the next witnessing event.

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.
Gal 1


If we drive any further..... we will be in the sea!!!!

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

For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest in the throne judging right.
Psalm 9:4

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.

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......

I do have sticky mandarin fingers but,

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!!!!
