1st Night of Red Hot Preaching Conference

The first night of the Red Hot Preaching Conference in Sacramento was an exciting time of fellowship and preaching. As we arrived, I noticed about six protestors, a couple of local TV stations, and a reporter from the Sacramento Bee, which is the main newspaper there. I gave the Bee reporter a piece of my mind when I was approached before the service since they have repeatedly published lies about Verity’s attendance. It was great to see old friends as well as some new faces.

We got to hear Brother Al Chiappetta give his testimony about how he ended up at Verity Baptist Church. He told us that he used to go to a “lame church,” and was encouraged to do more by like-minded believers, which helped get him more “fired up” about soul winning. This led to him making about a four hour round trip for two years straight from the Bay Area to Sacramento to attend Verity. He is now very thankful to live in Sacramento just minutes from the church.

Next up was Brother Garrett Kirchway who had us turn to Proverbs 20:1 and preached on “Wines on the Lees Well Refined,” where he ripped on alcohol. He rattled off a litany of scriptures that spoke strongly against alcohol as opposed to juice, which is also mentioned in the Bible. He told us how drinking is a big problem in Botswana that even their president is deeply concerned about, so this type of sermon will be extremely relevant when he gets to the mission field. He and I are looking forward to preaching in the junior high and high schools of Botswana since it looks like the Lord has opened some doors for us to do so.

I preached a sermon on "The Signs of the Times" where I started out talking about how we are moving toward a one-world government and cashless society and how people in this generation are lovers of themselves. There were a few serious rants where I preached directly at the media, and the reporters ended up walking out of the sermon before it was over.

I confronted an effeminate-looking protestor after the service, and I rebuked him with a few verses. This was filmed by the BBC reporter who has been following me for several weeks for an upcoming documentary. All in all, it was a great night, and I’m looking forward to the soul winning and preaching services that are still to come. If at all possible, I hope even more of you can join us tonight for more hard preaching.

Here is the sermon on The Signs of the Times.

Sounds lovely. God give us more grace, in His precious name, Amen.

I think there's a problem with the link to the sermon!

Well said Pastor.

I watched the spittle-splattered rant that rattled the media forces to death. It was picked up on several HD videos across media outlets. Even your parking lot encounter was streamed on YouTube. Excellent! Well done! The sodomite sympathizers needed a strong dose of KJV power. They're not used to the fourth wall being broken, haha!

Thank you for streaming this on Facebook for all the world to see. We are eternally grateful. We hope you can do the same when Bro. Kirchway and you are in Johannesburg and Gaborone.

Hi pastor, please can you elaborate on this documentary that's being filmed for none other than the BBC. Would love to hear more about it if possible. If not, I'm sure I'll hear of it soon enough. Sounds most spectacular!
