“Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you,and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body’s sake, which is the church: whereof I am made a minster, according to the dispensation of God.”
- Colossians 1:24,25

These are days when we ought to die to be ministers of God, in which days the proof of being a true minister of God does not hang in a frame on a wall in the pastor’s office, nor as the subtitle to the Church’s street sign, or newspaper advertisement. These are days wherein young Christian men with “too much zeal” dream of the days of Jermiah, Elijah and Elisha, hoping again that God might lay his hand upon them, in some daring last attempt to save a wicked nation for whom God cares more about, than they care about Him. The wicked nation is here! God is still here! And God still cares! But where are the young men?
The proofs of the ministry of God in such an age are what they have always been. And those same proofs are the requirements of character needed if God does find a man (Jeremiah 5:1) to lay His hand upon in these last days. But those proofs are out of reach and beyond the desire of the average effeminate clergy occupying the pulpits of churches across America and the world.

“But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God,
in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities,
in distresses, in stripes, in imprionments,
in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings.”
- 2 Corinthians 6:4,5

Those are the situational requirements “in” which a true minister of God is required to minister, and the demands of scripture require a character that can, “in” those situations continue to preach “by pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned, by the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, by honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report” (6:6-8). And those same scriptural requirements and demands laid upon the minister, require such strength of character and devotion to the Lamb of God that to endure those afflictions as a good soldier of Jesus Christ, true ministers of God will appear “as deceivers, and yet true; as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed; as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things” (6:8-10).
Those are the proofs of the ministry, and the requirements to minister the word of God in a wicked nation that has forsaken God, and resent God’s ministers warning them that “the wicked shall be turned into hell and all the nations that forget God” (Psalm 9:17). And it is prophetically unchangeable, that for a young man to “make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before God for the land…and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ” (Ezekiel 22:30/ Colossians 1:24), it will always bring prophetic results that cannot be got around, changed, or swapped for a more comfortable calling. To attempt such, is to remove yourself from the ministry of God, whether you keep your church or not. Great old John Bunyan lost his church, but kept his ministry. There are hundreds of thousands of so called ministers today, that keep their churches, but loose their ministration (2 Corinthians 3:6-9/ 4:1,2). While imprisoned in his Bedford prison’s cell, John Bunyan was told he could keep his church, if he would sign the license, the permit to preach, otherwise he would rot in prison. That godly saint of God said of such,

“If in a moment of delirium, I should reach forth my
hand to sign that paper, you would do me much service
if you would draw your sword, and sever my
arm from my body!”

God does not need anymore churches just like the ones He already has. Neither is He calling anymore ministers just like the ones already comfortable without Him, once they have their church house to preach in! In these last tragic days of the church age, God could use several thousand street preachers (Revelation 7:4). He will settle for two (Revelation 11:7,8) if that is all that surrender. And He will use them to do the work of thousands.
Howbeit, it requires a walk with God that surpasses education (Acts 4:13), but instills in the man of God a wisdom and a zeal of God to “withstand in the evil day” (Ephesians 6:13). Not just zeal, but wisdom (Proverbs 1:20) and zeal (Psalm 119:139). And the God called Street Preacher must be both, and can be both. But his walk with God, demands a discipline (hence: disciples) that surpasses the seminary and Bible school degrees passed out like honours at a grade school for the retarded.
Hence, The Street Preachers Fellowship was created of God to fulfill that discipline, and establish “according to the measure of the rule which God hath distributed to us, a measure to reach even unto you” (2 Corinthians 10:13), the standard of which can be seen in the public and private lives of all the members of the Fellowship, “known and read of all men” (2 Corinthians 3:2), both lost and saved, in churches, and in the prisons and courts of men when “necessity is laid upon us” (1 Corinthians 9:16). Thus it is our goal, as a ministerial fellowship and standards insitute, to train Street Preachers, not just in the Biblical conduct of the open air evanglists, but to establish that same Biblical measure as the accepted standard of both conscience and law.
It is the position of the Fellowship that “the law is good, if a man use it lawfully” (1 Timothy 1:8), and such is definitive for both God’s Law and man’s, for the scriptures have said of the latter,

“The powers that be are ordained of God.”
- Romans 13:1

Therefore, it is the intent and goal of the Fellowship to train its members in the Biblical and Legal use of both God’s word and man’s law, in the arena of conflict, when the unlawful use of the latter, attempts to stop the lawful preaching of the former.
Additionally, it is not a sin to go to jail rather than stop preaching the former, when they who enforce the latter know little of either. Rather, it is the clear and repeated command and example of scriptures, that the preaching of Jesus Christ not cease because men of authority say so (Acts 4:1,2, 18-20/ 5:16-20, 26-27/6:10-15/12:1-6), but continue “even unto bonds; for the word of God is not bound” (2 Timothy 2:9).

“Did not we straitly command you that ye
should not teach in this name?
Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said,
We ought to obey God rather than man.”
- Acts 5:28,29

The test of the preacher’s obedience to God is never in the pew at church or the desk at Bible School. The test of the preacher’s obedience is not in the mayor’s office asking for permission to preach openly, or in court arguing for the right, when permision is denied. The test of the preacher’s obedience is down on the street where God commanded him to preach the word of God to every creature and man says he is not allowed to do so. That is the test of a Street Preacher’s obedience. Though you can bind the preacher who refuses the command to be silent, you cannot bind the word of God. You can pass all the tests at Bible School and have your ordination papers in hand, but you fail this test and God will find Him another minister that He can trust to do what he commanded him to do!
O, Young men of God, “do not err my beloved Brethren” (James 1:16). Can you not see how God has ordained the powers that be (Romans 13:1) and also called you to preach the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ at all costs. “Necessity…Necessity...Necessity is laid upon me; yea, Woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel” (1 Corinthians 9:16). And “necessity” is in the same list of requirements for the ministry as “imprisonments” (2 Corinthians 6:4,5), because many times we “ministers of God” need to “approve ourselves” obedient in “the trial of our faith” (1 Peter 1:7) by going to prison if need be, before we will quit preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. Because it is God, Brethren, It is God that is looking for a man (Jeremiah 5:1) that will not compromise, and it has always been so!
Can you not see that?? Can you not see that the same God that called you to preach and sent you down to the streets, also sent the policeman down to stop you? The coward my ask, Why would God do that? But it is as plain as the scriptures (Habakkuk 2:2), that God calls His ministers to preach, and requires of them to “obey God rather than man” (Acts 5:29). He also “ordains” “the powers that be”, and sends them down to your street corner as “the minister of God to thee for good” (Romans 13:1,4), and requires that you “must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake” (vs. 5). Hence, the Lord wants you to obey God, and at the same time “be subject” to the power that tells you to disobey God, and cease preaching Christ “right now”. God never tells you to obey the man that commands you to quit preaching (Acts 5:29). God requires your subjection unto him, when he tells you the cost of your continued preaching is imprisonment. The only way to pass that test, is to be “obey God” and continue preaching, yet “subject” yourself to arrest for so doing!! But you cannot obey both God and man in that conflict, without compromising the word of God! But you can obey one, while subjecting youself to the other’s authority. The true minister of God, is the man that can do both, and must do both! You “obey God” (Acts 5:29) and preach, and you subject yourself to the powers that be (Romans 13:1-5) and “submit”… (1 Peter 2:13,14….It does not say ‘obey’) …you “submit” to arrest by “them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers” as the costs of preaching.
And why? For the same reasons that you are preaching in the first place.
1. For your obedience to Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5) and the love of God (2 Corinthians 5:14).
2. For the salvation of souls, and the warning of the wicked to repent (1 Corinthians 9:18,19).
3. For to be what God wants you to be (Philippians 3:9-12).
Brethren, the reason the gospel today has no effect, is because the lack of the above. There are no men willing to pay the costs God requires to bless the preaching with power. You cannot manifest the life of Christ by this lackadaisical, effeminate, Laodecian ministry of weak kneed and cowardly ministers of self and not Christ alone. There is only one deifnitive verse in the entire Bible that tells the minister of God how to manifest the life of Christ in his ministration. And it is a ministry of conflict.
What is missing in the ministry today, are men whose “sufficiency is of God”, and who have willfully allowed God to make them “able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life” (2 Corinthians 3:5,6). Why are you preaching in the streets if all it amounts to is yelling a bunch of Bible verses, and then going around to all the churches bragging about having done it in so many places, making you an expert in being able to do it with “minimum controversy”? The Bible is very clear, there must be a spirit behind your ministration (2 Corinthians 3:8), and “the Lord is that Spirit” (vs. 17). And having such a ministry (4:1), it requires that we “faint not” in the conflict, for such a ministration does in deed cause conflict and controversy that is unsurpassed, and unavoidable. God has constructed “the preaching of the cross” as “foolishness to them that perish” (1 Corinthians 1: 18) and a job seemingly for fools, who do not mind being one for God (1 Corinthians 4:10). And when done with the power of God behind you, and not the pathetic feelings and reputation of the menpleasers, it will always produce the following;

“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; always…always…always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. So then death worketh in us, but life in you. WE HAVING THE SAME SPIRIT OF FAITH, ACCORDING AS IT IS WRITTEN, I BLIEVED, AND THEREFORE HAVE I SPOKEN; WE ALSO BELIEVE, AND THEREFOR SPEAK!!!!!” (2 Corinthians 4:7-13).

But have you ever wondered why some ministers preach, and it never produces that, never bothers anyone, never causes any sort of a conflict? Then there are others, that can open their mouth, and immediately they “are troubled on every side” (4:8)?? There is in this country, a smooth, effeminate “street preacher”, who gives himself off as an authority and expert on street preaching, who never worked a day in his life, but wears a gold ring and some of the most expensive “gay clothing” (see James 2:1-3) you will ever find. When we last knew of him, he wore women’s make up when he preached or sang, to cut down the shine of his oily skin when in the pulpit. That same man is on his second “christian marriage”, and behind the scenes is an actual “male masseusse”, who has a proffessional clientele of homosexual “male models” that pay him with those expensive suits of “goodly apparel” for taking oil and massaging their naked bodies when he is not giving himself off as an expert street preacher. That same man has written his books about how to preach on the street, and will tell you to obey every man, and shut up when told to do so, never preach “to go to jail”, “don’t call names”, don’t preach about sin, but just put out the gospel and leave early before trouble starts, so you can be home with momy, while the wicked go to hell at midnight. His kind never upsets anyone, and if someone with him does, they exit stage left as soon as possible, and criticize the “trouble maker” as not using wisdom.
Ever met his kind? They preach the gospel too! But they never go to jail, and probably never will. If that is your mold, The Street Preachers’ Fellowship is not for you! We sincerely prefer “the fellowship of Christ’s sufferings” (see Philippians 3:10), and those minister’s, though few, that have the courage to walk therein for the preaching of the cross, and the salvation of lost souls.
The conflict is not an easy one. But the fellowship is designed to train, strengthen and assist each of its memebers in their individual ministries as they “press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:14). Its goals are mentioned herein. A lot of what we do is unbelievably wonderful in the blessings of God, the power of the Holy Ghost, and the joy of the Lord as our strength. But it requires wisdom and zeal, strength and beauty (Psalm 96:6). With our street preachers continually fighting sin along with the right to reprove the same openly, there will be times of unbelievable liberty and freedom. But in this country there will also be times of unsurpassed hardships, enormous trouble on every side, and “labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft” (2 Corinthians 11:23) as each member “makes full proof of his ministry” (2 Timothy 4:5). If God has called you to preach, and the world is your pulpit, and you are of the character of Christ, come join us. God as our help, we will be there when others flee!

By the grace of God alone,
