CONFESSIONS OF A STREET PREACHER: Arrested in Milwaukee

Posted by in Facebook's Pentecostal Theology Group View the Original Post

The cops got me.
I was downtown preaching Psalm 1 this morning.
Disorderly conduct. Louder than 50′ lol
They cuffed me and put me in the back of the squad car. But couldn’t find a complainant. Then they were very nice and they apologized…
But before they uncuffed me I told them I’m not going to stop if you want to pursue charges go ahead now. But I’ll be preaching all over this city. Then I prayed for their safely and wisdom.
The cuffs only hurt for a little while. But it did hurt.
So the battle goes on…
The funny part is I just said in my heart, “Its nice outside, I’m going to preach all day.”

Have fun stay safe and give God the glory in everything!

    PASTOR,
    please bring this case before your church for prayer this Sunday

    A street preacher member of this group was cuffed today for preaching the Gospel TOO LOUD

    Perhaps our SIN in America is NOT preaching the Gospel LOUD ENOUGH

    We need to make a MORAL CHOICE in America today

    To speak about a foreign pastor with billion dollars and Rolls OR to speak on behalf of Christian preachers getting arrested in America TODAY

    To speak about the faith of a president who not long ago was neither saved nor republican OR to STAND FOR the TRUE Christian conservative values this country was built upon

    The TIME to SPEAK is NOW
    IT is TIME to make a moral choice
    before we all loose our place in history

    I was speaking at a church yesterday in Minneapolis, Minnesota and after the church one of the Pastors and his son took me to the the mall of America, we randomly ran to some Muslims and we began a casual conversation, they asked me where I’m from and I told them, the conversation led to whether I’m a Muslim or not and I said I use to be a Muslim but I converted to Christianity. They asked me why? What happened? Why did you change? I told them after I heard that Jesus died for me and rose again, I gave my heart to Him. And I was giving them my testimony. Another Muslim lady who was hearing us went and told the security that “I’m harassing them”, they security came and arrested me, filed a report and the police came and took me to jail, I was charged with “illegal soliciting” and “criminal trespassing”. I need to appear in court sometime soon. wouldn’t imagine something like this would happen in America. ” https://www.raminparsa.org/2018/08/26/pastor-ramin-parsa-arrested-by-in-the-mall-of-america/?fbclid=IwAR0i8_d0XWgr3_wddeOslVjtWnKN_-aZwHPuntnYLmkxu-mc3L4_xbXU-KI

      sure , but you don’t have to obnoxious and do more harm in turning people away from the gospel . you should know how people work and respond . you don’t get up in their face shouting , you don’t get loud . the power of the Holy Ghost is a peaceful gental wind , not a gale fore wind destroying everything in its path .

      Robert Erwine – Actually David Brainerd would be the more accurate comparison. I have seen many souls won on the street. My take is that you have not, because you have not tried and feel safe sitting behind a computer spewing your thoughts in a vain attempt to seem clever.

    I usually tried to use humor whenever I was arrested for preaching. The Lord usually had christian cops so they were cool with me. One cop lied (he later lost his job) and said I punched out the owner of a transgender movie house. The cops who came for me were saved and very nervous. They forgot that I couldn’t get out f a locked cop car. I loosened them up when they patted me down by saying “you just didn’t transfer from SF, did ya” Anyway, I had it thrown out of court, but I got a chance to witness on the local radio station. This experience helped me change occupations in hopes of helping those wrongly jailed for the gospel.

    Robert Erwine, I am trying to be kind here. I am so tired of the computer condemning crusaders who are reduced to reliance upon their recently attained education and lack of personal experience with God. Were you there to know if God did or did not tell the brother to do that. Would you tell God that He was was out of place by the method He choose. I know Gd’s ways are not always our way. You sir have no clue and perhaps should be praying that the Brother, if in God’s will, will be even bolder in sharing God’s word to the sinner. I see very few others doing it.

    And the LORD said to Joshua, “See, I have given Jericho into your hand, with its king and mighty men of valor. Joshua 6:2

    Principals of victory to pull down the strongholds in this world and your life.

    1. God spoke in past tense. He has done it. he has given us the victory.

    2. Follow God’s instruction even when we don’t understand them. Go ye into all the word and preach the gospel to all creation. Mark 16:15

    This may seem strange as we want to speak of evil, but speak the good news as God told us.

    3. Give a great shout of victory. Stop whining about all the troubles and that we are just barely going to make if God doesn’t hurry and rapture us. The walls were still up in Jericho, but the people believed that God was in control.

    We can still trust God’s word. Praise Him that the victory is His realm and not the false tactics of the Devil. God doesn’t want you to walk in defeat either. You are not to be mastered by your flesh and the strong-holds of the flesh life. Go to Him and as usual He will always bring the walls down.

    But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57

    The Riverside theater. It’s the on Wisconsin Ave. One of the main street of Milwaukee. They had some good venues last year. Snoop dog was sold out. 2,500 lambs. A great crowd. the Judas Priest “show” was a hostile crowd…
    As to coming against the public proclamation of God’s word it’s just wrong. Are you more spiritual than Jesus. Smarter too maybe? He said go preach
    “And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day.
    And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.”
    – Luke 24:46,47

    It’s now a city ticket for “conversion therapy” but only at the professional level I heard. Meant living rooms and kitchens are still the best place for discipleship

    yeah I figured this is the post Joe Absher it was when Robert Erwine pulled some liberal stuff that no need of loud preaching was needed when John the baptist did it didnt count AND turns ppl away or something Never mind we were talking about arresting street preachers in the US and abroad as Jesse Morrell stated then

    If they threaten you with arrest, you can walk away and then file a free speech lawsuit.

    If you get arrested, you have to wait for the charges to be dealt with before you can pursue a case

    BUT my point was different this week I heard another preacher actual pastoring and acting as pastor dude state we need to change this because for 100% the church was wrong to preach loud and see how we turned off the millenial generation Nevermind Erwin dont even watch Star wars and all that other stuff
