Bill's Window Washing Business

cc from flickr.com

Again, on the paper route I accomplish every morning with the Lords help, I ran across Bill digging through the dumpsters. Bill is one of many of the different men I've met who are looking for cans, which they can make .05 cents from, early in the morning. When I first talked to Bill I found out he believed in the Lord Jesus Christ as his savior, praise Jesus. God had me do a little more than just a couple bucks and a Bible though this time, I'll explain.

Bill came from Arkansas, and said he was getting away from a bad scene where nothing good was there for him. Knowing the heavy occultism in Arkansas and the Ozarks, I simply imagined he was indeed sincerely trying to break free from something likely very dark in the South. He made it to Oregon and now was rummaging though the apartment trash bins looking for recyclable cans and whatever else he could make some money off – maybe even some food if it looked good?

I could tell the middle aged hearty Bill had been through a lot just by sensing his humility and yet reservedness in his stare. He was a sober fella, a good sort, short hair, clean clothes, and looking to get on his feet in this new land with a new start. He knew me although I didn't know him, cause he said he saw me every morning delivering papers. After I thought about it, yeah- I did see this guy riding his bicycle with his flatbed trailer on it. In the wee hours of the morning, everyone who I come into contact with I'm a bit weary of at first for good reason. I hold my taser close and make sure I'm not too far away from my running car.

After talking to Bill a few times over a month or so and giving him a few bucks and a Bible, God must of put it on my heart to offer him more. One raining morning when it was nasty out, there was Bill fishing around in a nasty dumpster and I asked him “how ya doing Bill?” Kind of a stupid question, but he said he was doing good, and I think sincerely he was doing better than most people in the world who have their cushy jobs perpetuating this beast system in meaningless ways.

Well, I got to talking to Bill about starting a window washing business. In the end, I offered to help him get it started after he seemed on board to do it. He had a nice flatbed trailer on his nice mountain bike, so he had the transportation. I also found out that Bill's regular line of work was commercial door repair. Well, I offered to help him get this window washing business started, so I got his number (he has an Obama phone) and told him I'd call him later.

Later on this day when I was ready to give him the money, he never answered. The next day a man knocks on our door and serves me notice that I'm being taken to small claims court for $550 for a doctors bill. This was from an bleeding ear ache I had a few years ago. We had to pay this within a couple weeks. This was tough, cause I wanted to give Bill about a $100, and now this made it difficult to do. We resolved to still give him the money though.

I saw Bill a few days later and told him I tried to call, and then I told him what happened and that we were still going to give him the money and help him, just give me a bit of time. He may have been disappointed, but didn't show it and we said God bless and went on our ways in the dark early morning. Come to think of it, we've only ever seen each other in the dark early morning.

A couple days after this, after we'd paid all our bills for the first part of the month and knew what we had left, I saw Bill again. This time I was resolved to give him all the money I had in my pocket (which was $60), because I knew it was a lot of money for him. See, it's difficult to gather up enough money to do anything significant in his position although he did work hard. So, I talked to Bill and we discussed the business and how much it would cost to do this and that. I then gave him $60 and told him I was going to order him some business cards as well. I just wanted to know if he was serious and was going to spend the money on window washing equipment. He assured me he was, and I believed Bill cause he is such a humble and broken spirit hungry for work. The light of Jesus Christ is in Bill, so I knew God was watching after the man. OK, so good God bless and see you later.

After I left him, I realized I had the notebook I wanted to give him in the glove box (this had some extra job opportunities in it as well), so I turned back around after delivering a few papers to try and find Bill. He's already moved on to a couple dumpsters down. I also realized I had this envelope in the dash under my Bible. This envelope was something a paper route customer gave me earlier that morning – he actually waited up for me til 3am to hand me this card. I checked what was in it, and it had $20 in it! So, when I caught up to Bill, I gave him the notebook, pen, and the extra $20. He was very grateful and kept saying thank you Robbie. I was already in the car zooming off and I was saying no, thank you Jesus.

See, sometimes we don't realize what $80 can mean to a person like Bill. That amount of money is what many people spend in one evening going out to dinner, but for Bill this could mean the difference of getting a window washing business, which could lead him to getting on his feet again and really making a difference in other people's lives for Jesus Christ. Bill does have a place to stay, with some friends, but these things can be tenuous and not always secure. Also, getting a job isn't always as easy as people think when you are in the shape he's in. For someone with means it takes nothing to get a job and start anew, but for a person who starts with nothing, getting over that initial rut of poverty can literally take years of focus and sober effort. And when you take into account that most people in the streets are there because of tragedy that happened in their lives, well you can see the forces that keep them stagnant are very formidable.

I don't know what will happen with Bill, if the window washing business will succeed or even if it will happen. All I know is I'm taking a chance with someone because he is a brother in Christ and God is going to get the most bang for his buck with this $80 gift. Just think, what if I see this man in the community my wife and I serve washing some windows for the businesses of which we visit! Won't that be an awesome sight to see honest labor being done and not only a good Christian man getting paid, but also gaining that honest labor of which his means come in the grace and goodness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I mean, down here in the trenches, we don't have anyone else to attribute the light to, cause it for sure isn't our lowly selves getting anything done in this unnatural beast system we are being oppressed by.

All glory to God in the name of Jesus Christ for all good things, and for using Jesus Loves Ministry in this small matter with such big importance for Mr. Bill. God bless reader, and remember the theme verse for this blog (below the Blog title up top).  And hey, say a little prayer for Bill's window washing and commercial door repair business please, thanks.

The Jesus/Bicycle Connection With Greg

   One of my current jobs is a newspaper delivery route in the early hours of the day. Generally, I'm working around 2-6am in the morning. At this time of the morning most people are asleep, but every once in awhile I see either young people who have been partying all night or a homeless person looking in the dumpsters.

   This morning it was both, there was some young people up likely drinking, drugging and fornicating all night and then there was Greg who I saw in one of the big dumpsters by some of the apartments I deliver to.

   Earlier in the morning I noticed there was a mountain bike on the sidewalk in a residential neighborhood I deliver to. It had a cardboard sign on it that said free as it was simply standing upright on it's kickstand. I didn't inspect it very clearly, but I simply kept it in mind. I sort of had the thought of how is someone going to find this bike seeing that it's tucked away in this residential area? Anyway, I carried on delivering the papers.

   At the apartments about a half hour later I saw this guy nosing around in the dumpster. I usually see a homeless guy on my route at least once every other week. Most of the time I catch up with them and give them some change and a Bible. I believe I've done this about 4 times now, and it's amazing every time the homeless man is nice and turns out to be a Christian! I know they are too, because my Spirit witnesses with theirs, although they are under a curse and struggling I know they truly believe in Jesus. I'll touch on this later in the article.

   At first I didn't think to stop and talk to the man this morning, but I suddenly had the thought to ask him if he wanted the bike I saw before. So, I backed up and said hello. He seemed to be strung out some, but was amiable enough to talk with me coherently and I could tell he was alright. I asked him if he wanted a bike and told him the situation. He was excited and he asked me “your a Christian huh?”. I said yeah I am, are you? And he said he was as well. He was smiling and stunned that I asked him to get in the car to go to the location where the bike was. He got in and we headed to the bike about a mile away.

   We talked quickly about his situation and then he realized I knew about conspiracies and what was going on in the world. We even began to talk about the fallen angels mating with humans as it explains in Genesis 6. Amazing again how homeless men are more knowledgeable and more Christian than those who wear suits and go to church every Sunday. These truly are the end days.

   So, once we got to the bike, he saw it and was very grateful for it even though it ended up having a flat back tire. I gave him a handful of change and a dollar bill, which was all the cash I had on me, and then gave him a full KJV Bible too. At first he said he already had a Bible, but right before we parted he took the Bible and was very grateful for it. He wasn't a beggar type, he didn't even want to take the dollar I wanted to give him, this was probably the case with the Bible too, although it only cost me and my wife a dollar to get it at the Dollar Tree.

   I then shared part of my testimony with him after he asked me how he could basically overcome his sin. I encouraged him to go to the Christian homeless shelter in the area where my wife and I give to monthly and we know it's a good place. I then prayed for Greg a simple prayer of warfare where I broke the curses off him, poured the living water on him, asked God to help him get a job, a place, and a car. I told him Satan was trying to take him out and that the thoughts he was having was from demons that came in through sins and generational curses. This was all in a very condensed meeting we had outside on the sidewalk of someone's house in a residential area at 3am. Greg then wanted to pray for me, and he did as he put his hand on my shoulder and prayed a very strong prayer for me and for him. I said amen and was grateful for his prayer, but I also broke any transference of demons and covered myself in the blood of Jesus after we parted.

   I didn't think this was going to happen this morning on my paper route, but because I was clear headed and had my mind on God ( I listen to Christian shows all morning on my MP3 player), well God was able to use me to minster to one of his children who was in dire need. I'm not sure what will happen to Greg, but this bit of encouragement and help can go a long way for someone who is down and out and forgotten by society at large. I know because I've been homeless before myself, and although I never had to dumpster dive, I understand what it's like to see society flying by and crushing me underneath it's cold progress.

   Amazingly these homeless people over and over I'm finding are not only Christian, but also they understand what is going on in the world. The conspiracy, the illusion, the deception does not have them! Let me say simply, it makes sense, because those who embrace this beast system are elevated, while those who reject it and are good because they have Jesus in them, they are pressed down – and if the person doesn't realize the spiritual warfare involved, they are prey to the sin that they can't seem to shake. Satan is trying to take out the men in America, and nearly every time I talk to these homeless middle age guys, they are there because of divorce and owing child support. This was the case with Greg too.

   I pray for Greg, I told him he was a vessel of honor and we need him in the fight to save souls. I pray he takes my advice and goes to the Christian shelter and gets back on his feet so he can be a force to counter the ever growing wickedness in this country giving place to sin and iniquity more and more. We don't have to be trodden down by this beast system, because we are in Jesus Christ's system and we therefor are kings and priests of the Almighty God. Even if we find ourselves out of a home, we children of God will not give place to the evil thoughts of the enemy and we'll only use our struggles to become stronger to save more souls!

   Another amazing part of this story I felt the urging to share, is that God can use me even though I'm mostly out of the way of society at large. Even with a lonely paper route in the wee hours in the morning he has given me people to minister to at the dumpsters. Truthfully, it's an honor to help these men of God more than it would be to talk with those who wear nice clothes and live in the hills in their big houses. I would much rather hang out with Greg than them...how about you?

   May the Lord Jesus Christ bless your soul and give you souls to minister to in your day to day life!

Maximizing What We Have

It's been since August of 2014 since I've posted in Jesus Loves Ministry. The foundation was begun, but the working of the ministry hasn't been in action formally as much as we'd want. The principle I've attained from the Word is we have to be responsible for the little we have in order for God to give us more responsibility. 

Thus, although my wife and I don't have much, what we do have we need to maximize and appreciate in order for God to work in our lives in a bigger way. 

For the last 4 years we have been giving out the Holy Bible to people on the street with a couple bucks. The Bibles we buy are from the Dollar Tree, and they are 1611 Authorized King James Version bibles, approved by the inspection of Mr. Al Cuppett. So, you can get Bibles for a dollar each that you can hand out to people in need. 

I find over and over again that the people who are willing to hear the gospel are the broken, these people on the street corners. Many times when we have the chance to talk with them about Jesus instead of just handing out the Bibles and a couple dollars, we find they already know God. These people on the street corners are going to be more prepared and ready for the coming collapse than the rich person who hid in their big houses with their secret sins. 

What a joy it is to be part of the dozen or so ministries we are blessed to be part of. By giving our tithe to many different ministries in which we listen to, we also get their newsletters, magazines, emails, phone calls, and even meeting them in person. That's just the point, we have already a working ministry that is just beginning. A sister emailed me through my blogs the other day and I was able to help her find a place of fellowship in Salem Oregon. Now my wife is in email contact with her. 

Email, letters, radio shows, talking on the phone, and meeting people in person are all forms of fellowship that us remnant Christians really need. There is much that the average person can do just from their own home and computer. 

This is what I wanted to share. Although it's hard for me and my wife to physically find the time to go the prisons, the hospital, or wherever to minister to people - we need to start out with what we can do. A mailing ministry is something we can do. We order books and materials and then send them out to people we think it will help. We can write emails, letters, and call people on the phone as well to say hi, thank them, or voice our concern over an injustice like brother Kent Hovind who is being persecuted and they are trying to put in jail for life for no reason except he is an effective Christian. 

So the message in this post is let's examine closely what we have and maximize it's potential. After all this is what God has done with all of us. Honestly I was a wretched mess and still am sometimes, but God examined my heart and saw a love for the truth so maximized my potential and gave me his riches in Jesus Christ. All my wife and I are trying to do now is find a way to give back and help others find the light of Jesus Christ while trying to work and deal with this unnatural way of life this beast system is demanding from all of us. 

This blog is a good start for Jesus Loves ministry, and if you are reading this and have a question then just ask and we'll try to help. I'll be posting more often and sharing the results of this new outlook. God bless and know Jesus loves you.
