Handing Out Chick Tracts

(Update: Dear man of God, Jack Chick died the day after I wrote this article -- Oct. 23, 2016 -- and is now with Jesus in heaven, may his ministry and work be magnified after his death. What an amazing Christian life he lived, praise Jesus Christ for him and his ministry)

Chances are you've seen a Chick tract at some point in your life. Jack Chick has been making these Christian witnessing tracts for 40 or so years from what I know – a long time. These are small little comic book type stories about varies subjects, all ending with a call to believe on Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior at the end.

Really, that's the entire point of being a Christian, isn't it? Saving the lost, rather than saving our stuff, our lives, our jobs – in other words, not focusing on ourselves, but on helping others come to the faith of Jesus. Personally, I know that the only reason I'm even alive and saved is because of the mercy and goodness of God, so how can I live for myself?

Still, I struggle to make time to get out in this wicked world and reach the lost. There are many distractions and obstacles that Satan puts in the way, for sure. This can even be as simple as just not having the energy and motivation many times, and with all the confusion and madness in the world these days, this is often the case.

Even with my lackluster effort, my wife and I have somehow given out hundreds of these Chick tracts in the last year. The other day, I was able to give three away when we went bowling. One I left on a table, one I gave to a strange guy who came to tell us a joke I didn't understand, and the third I gave to a young man behind the counter when we left, saying God bless.

People like these Chick tracts, and these are Biblically sound and powerful messages from a sincere believer who understands that there's a heaven to gain and a hell to avoid. Of course, we avoid hell by having faith in Jesus Christ, amen.

Often, we give out some money and a Bible with the Chick tracts, especially, to those who are on the corner begging for help. These are easy enough, cause we all drive by them everyday, just have to time it right with the lights and all. Interestingly, these people often are so happy to get a Bible, and are usually in agreement with our faith in Jesus. I find the people who don't fit into this world and are on the streets because of it, are often believers in Jesus Christ just like us.

Some may say they are just saying this, but why would they just say this? These people have nothing to lose, they've already lost everything and have no reason to lie. It's actually rare for me to find a homeless person who isn't a believer, albeit, struggling just like most of us. To me these are blessed people, cut off from cable TV and the Internet, free from the temptations of fame, power, money, and other such things that snare many sincere believers.

I know, cause I used to be homeless, watching the world fly by in such a rush. I worked as a homeless person, but I wasn't in a rush like the other people. I felt bad for these people (and still do), who have all these things and are rushing around so fast they can't even think straight.

What a blessed God we serve, who is only pleased by our faith in him. It is only our faith that pleases God. Isn't that awesome? Isn't it awesome that God isn't a respecter of persons, surely, this is one of the most awesome characteristics of Jesus Christ. What a blessing to not have to be someone or have something to be respected by God! I can't say as much for many, even sincere, Christians who look down on people like me and these brothers and sisters on the streets. Aren't we all struggling with something in this confusing, wicked world we are in?

Truly, this is a confusing time. I just love the simplicity of the Bible, the Gospel, of Jesus Christ. Believe in Jesus Christ and tho shalt be saved! Amen, how simple, yet the enemy makes it so complicated. The good part is, we don't have to pay any mind to the enemy or those who complicate the message. We can just believe in sincerity and worship God in spirit and truth – and we'll be just fine, even great!


I'll leave a link below to Chick Publications, which is where you too can get some tracts to hand out to the lost. There are also some great books and other materials to get there, it will surely be a blessing to you and those you share them with. Let's focus on the Bible these days, and keep it simple in this time of confusion, not fearing, but being thankful for all the blessings God gives us everyday – especially, our salvation through his son, Jesus Christ. Blessings to you brothers and sisters.

Aggressive Freedom Deliverance Conference in Montana 2016



Eastern Oregon near Dayville

 It's been a month now since my wife and I attended the Aggressive Freedom deliverance conference at the Oasis Church in Billings, MT. We had a blessed week long stay there attending the conference. 

Beautiful wife Fawn and I at the Yellowstone Arts Museum 
Having fellowship with like minded believers, getting deliverance, hearing teachings, being prayed for, and singing songs to the Lord Jesus were all great things to do on a vacation.

Pastor Kyle and his wife Linda were the hosts of the conference, and it was being held at their church called the Oasis Church. The guests included: the Colonel, Steve Quayle, and Pastor Nickie Pinson. There were about 30 people who showed up, and most came everyday for the 6 days it was held.

The people came from all over the country, from Texas, Pennsylvania, N. Dakota, Idaho, and Oregon – to name a few. It was a blessing to meet the ones God wanted us to meet and be there with everyone. We collected contact information from about 5 families, and have been in touch with most of these.

My wife and I also went to the White Stone Remnant conference in Bozeman, MT a couple years before, where Pastor Kyle and Linda spoke as well. At the time, this conference was a blessing, but this deliverance conference was more to the heart of what's needed today: spiritual warfare. Deliverance, healing, and the gifts of God operating in our lives.

Montana Near Bozeman
There was good teachings by Pastor Kyle, Linda, the Colonel, and Pastor Pinson – and there was a few groups of worship leaders leading us in singing before each session. There were two sessions a day and three one day. Nearly every service there was mass deliverance, as well as a couple services were people were prayed for to receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost.

Pastor Pinson, to my wife and I, was the biggest blessing of the entire conference. His humility and closeness to Jesus and no nonsense teachings were appreciated greatly. He was also very kind and attentive to people to pray for them. In one session nearly everyone came up to be prayed for by Pastor Pinson, as he prophesied over some, cast demons out of others, and prayed for healing with others.

My wife was nearly first in line getting prayer, and Pastor Pinson prayed right to her heart and blessed her. I was reluctant to get prayer at first, thinking I'm fine...but with my wife's encouragement I went in line and Pastor Pinson prayed for me. He ended up saying a powerful word for my life, a prophetic word. He started out saying a scripture, which is about my favorite and maybe the biggest compelling scripture that led me back to Jesus Christ. Here it is:

1 Corinthians 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: 29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.

Now, Pastor Pinson didn't know me or my wife at all before this conference, and we'd only talked to say hello when he first arrived. Yet, he spoke the scripture closest to my heart, and then went on to say I'm called to preach and am going to be a powerful man of God – not by my power, but by Jesus Christ's power...

The prophecy was longer than this, but this was the main substance of what God spoke through him. I receive this prophecy, although it surprised me and I haven't formally thought about being a preacher. From what I've seen and examined of Pastor Pinson, he is a real man of God and has a gift of prophecy and a fear of the Lord. I'll put a link to his ministry and YouTube below this post.

My wife and I were blessed to be there among the believers, but Pastor Pinson really made the conference real to us. He saw me like no other man of God has, he respected me and talked to me differently than any other person ever has. My wife and I were both impressed with his humility and lowliness, and how this correlated with a profound love of Jesus coupled with a deep fear of God.

The other part of the conference we enjoyed had to do with my brother, which sorta lives in Montana. We've been working on helping my brother come closer to Jesus for years, and he'd been through a lot since we'd seen him last two years before at the other conference mentioned.

Me and Fawn Visiting My niece in Montana
My brother is now living in Arizona, but was coming through Billings to get some matters taken care of in Montana. The timing God set was perfect, as he flew in the last day of the conference. He came to our hotel after the last meeting and we had a blessed visit in the Lord Jesus Christ. My wife and I had visited my niece (his daughter) on the way to the conference a week before, and this touched my brother's heart and we saw how God was working mightily in his heart to bring him to repentance and faith in Jesus.

This is making a long story short you could say, but it does give a bit of what we experienced on our latest trip to Montana. I guess we and these people at this conference are peculiar people for wanting to spend our vacation at a deliverance conference, but really we wouldn't have it any other way. People may think drugs, alcohol, and things of the flesh are what makes a vacation exciting – really these only bring pain, suffering, and sorrow in the end.


The drive was very beautiful, especially through eastern Oregon. We had a blessed trip checking out all the small towns and the wonderful countryside. The only ugly parts are the big cities full of craziness...

The pictures you see here are some of the ones we took on this drive, on our wonderful vacation trip to Billings, MT. God met us there and honored our efforts, using Pastor Pinson to speak directly to our hearts and having fellowship with such wonderful people.

Hudson Taylor, Discipline and Charity

 I wanted to share some important scriptures with you and relay some thoughts about discipline, Hudson Taylor, and charity. Here are the scriptures:

I Corinthians 13:

  1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.


Hudson Taylor


Lately I've been blessed find a couple books about Hudson Taylor, which describe his life as a missionary in China in 1850's. The book I'm reading is called: Hudson Taylor & China's Open Century If I Had a Thousand Lives by A.J. Broomhall. 

This is the third book in a series of six by Broomhall, which describe Hudson Taylor's wonderful missionary life experiences from his letters and those close to him during the mid- 1800s.

Taylor was from England and became a missionary and a doctor to the Chinese people in China during the later half of the 19th Century. What a wonderful man of God he and those around him were in those difficult years of missionary work in that distant land. 

There was an opening then for the Chinese people to be given the gospel, which now has been mostly closed because of the Vatican NWO bringing Mao to power in the mid 1900's. Yet, the work of these missionaries is still growing in China today from my understanding with millions upon millions of Christians worshiping in underground churches all across that great land today.

Apostasy in Modern Church and Where Liberty is Found


Reading the book shows me something about my life, where my wife and I come up short. The difficulties we face today are so much different, yet it's always the same Satan we face. What strikes me about Hudson and those faithful Protestant Christian missionaries the most, is their discipline and ability to do without the comforts and pleasures of life.

They suffered greatly with diseases and death, their children dying in infancy, their spouses dying of typhoid and other tropically induced fevers and diseases. And yet they worked tirelessly to spread the gospel and bring comfort to the Chinese people they were trying to reach for Christ Jesus. How far removed we are today from such faithfulness and discipline.

Interestingly I heard of a modern church today which sent over some teenagers to Vietnam as “missionaries”, although instead of preaching Jesus Christ to the people – they worked at a coffee shop while there? How strange that this big church is spending thousands to have unsaved teenagers go on vacation under the guise of being missionaries? How far removed we are from the Protestant churches of even a 150 years ago.

Going on about the state of apostasy in the modern churches will require too much effort, and if you read this blog you probably understand this anyway. The only thing we can do is look at our lives and ask Jesus to help us improve our relationship with him. If only we could get away from this modern beast system and be a missionary in some far away remote part of the earth, but in reality at this point there is no escape from the beast system. A scripture comes to mind here:

II Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty.

Thankfully, anywhere we are at we have access to true liberty. Even if we are in prison or stuck in the beast system, where nearly everyone around us is possessed with demons and lost to Satan. Praise Jesus for this wonderful promise.

Discipline in Our Lives


As for me and my wife, we struggle to find discipline in our lives. The lack of fellowship is hard for us, as we have yet to find a church not in apostasy of some sort. Truly, it's worse to join a church in rebellion and hasn't a love of the truth, than it is to be in the wilderness alone. We find fellowship online through ministries around America, sometimes being able to meet them or talk with them on the phone or email. This is the scant and rare fellowship we have in this mind-controlled satanic culture and country of modern America...

How much more so do we need to be disciplined and close to the Lord! And how much more do we need to have charity rather than knowledge, prophecy, and the gifts of God! 

We need to have charity above all things, because only with love can we hold dear the truth above all temptations. And the truth is the Holy Bible and all the commandments and exhortations it gives. Love isn't a license to accept rebellion and lies, but rather a power to only hold to us the truth in perfect obedience.

God's Judgment


Really, it can't be long until the destruction of the wicked comes upon America. And why would any of us want the judgment of God to be delayed at this point? 

There comes a point when delaying God's judgment will only lead to more lost souls, because at this point people simply aren't listening to truth anymore. 

There is no fear of God in the land, and this is the problem with Americans – especially those who call themselves Christians: because they have the most guilt with the knowledge they have and yet not obeying or fearing God. Woe be unto those who fool themselves into thinking they are something they are not.

How I long to be in heaven with Jesus Christ. Yet, I'm still here in this wicked world having to navigate the beast system with all its insanity and oppression. People now call this progress, this modern world full of digital paperwork and technological advances. Yet, truly all these modern "advances" are being used to oppress and control the populations more and more. Soon, the mark will be a reality for all to make their choice.


Also, soon these wicked cities full of abominations will be destroyed in an instant. All the wicked who are flocking to them to sin, will be destroyed and without remedy.

This judgment has been prophesied by many real men of God over the last 100 years, and will surely come to pass. Only this destruction and ruination of this wicked land will wake people up to fear the Almighty God in heaven. Only this calamity will snap people out of their apostasy and rebelliousness.

I think Hudson Taylor would understand what I'm saying. As for me and my house, we will worship the Lord Jesus Christ with charity try to reach the lost and find the discipline we need to better obey the Holy Bible everyday of our lives.

January 2016 Update For Jesus Loves Ministry






Eugene homeless camp
   Really every Christian has their own ministry, if only in the second or third definition of it's meaning. We could call it: our efforts to reach the lost and hurting humans with the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Lately, our ministry has been steadily integrating ideas and practical works into our everyday routines.

  This modern world is a very busy place anymore. All these so called technological conveniences are actually cumbersome control mechanisms, which only free up time so we can be more productive slaves for the Anti-Christ over in the Vatican. The papacy always having been and still is: that Man of Sin, the Anti-Christ. Yet, we can be slaves rather to Jesus Christ, which is far better.

Cities and Money are a Cold Wind to the Lost


Many people are getting lost in the streets of these large cold cities, cut out of the beast system and without knowledge of Jesus Christ. They could be alcoholics and/or drug addicts or not, the real common theme is their unwillingness or inability, to fit into this beast system. This rare individual thinking is refreshing to me, and I see more potential in the homeless and poor than the rich – the doing well financial type.

Eugene downtown
There is this disconnect in some people when it comes to money. They simply worship it, and become blind to what it actually is and could be used for. Money is nothing when a person doesn't realize they are an individual God has made for a purpose. Those who are wise, understand money is simply a great way to help people, not to hoard, save, or worship. Yes, a person can live comfortably within reason and keep enough saved to retire (within reason), but after this: what good is any of our money?

Many times, those who have money, have received it from fitting into the beast system. Their agreement and embracing of the system, has led to them being rewarded through connections with jobs and wealth assets. There are (or used to be) some who've worked their own businesses and have nothing to do with secret societies or Catholic influenced society. Yet, these are diminishing quickly and are targeted for destruction by the beast system.

The homeless and lost around here in Eugene/ Springfield are numerous as usual throughout the year. Many come here because it's a nice temperate place for homeless to live, is safe, and has a number of resources for food, shelter, and clothing. 

My wife and I usually focus on helping these people with Bibles, Chick Tracts, help packs, money, talking with them and prayer. God generally brings at least one instance of helping someone every week.

Only one time was the Bible refused, by an angry man outside of the laundry mat. Yet, I believe he was a truth seeker and ultimately would find Jesus, maybe the half an hour reasoning with him on the curb in Springfield helped him know Jesus loves him. That's the whole point of our ministry, to let people know someone very powerful and true loves you, Jesus Loves you.


Colorado Family on Halloween


A Colorado Dad and adult disabled daughter were in need of help on the wicked night of Halloween last year. They were on the side of the off ramp of the freeway, so I parked the car and walked over to them. They were believers, but they used to be Mormons. I gave them resources information, twenty dollars, and some clothes out of the trunk of the car. We prayed against the Mormon curse and other demons, and loosed good things unto them in Jesus mighty name. Not sure what ever happened to them, but that was one story of Jesus Loves Ministry. 

A story not written because of conflicting schedule duties – this has been ironed out now and we'll post in here more often now.


The Long Absence of Articles


Forgive me for the long absence at this site. The last article was about Bill and his window washing business, which turned out well with Bill. Greg, who I gave the bicycle to in a previous article, he went to rehab about 6 months back. He was addicted to meth, but I was able to pray for him, give him a Bible, and include him in my daily prayer list.

My wife is going to write an article soon, and I've included JL into my work schedule for a post at least every month. We do have financial obligations to take care of before we can give more money away to useful causes, but this is being worked out after over a decade of being under debts' heavy burden.


Until next time, please remember the poor in your area – all those who are in need physically and those who are without faith in Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible. With just 10 min a week you can consistently help many lives for the better. God bless and protect you and families in Jesus name.
