I found one of the organizers of this weird display of people and gave him a tract to read. He actually said thank you. There were other believers witnessing to the "Hare followers" and pointing them to the real Messiah.
Earlier, we came upon the nudist booth (below), but the promoters of the program were dressed, and the guy behind the table told me he is a Christian. He told me that God was good with being naked. I looked a bit perplexed and asked him why God put clothes on the first people if naked was ok? The nudie promoter didn't like me challenging his ideas and said, "It's all how one interprets the Bible, which was written by men."
One simple Biblical question was all it took to find out where this lost soul is really coming from. I shared with him that God put clothes on people because we had brought sin into the world and needed God's provision.
Then something really strange happened. The guy started getting shaky and his eyes started to flitter as he told me to leave because he was troubled by my presence and spirit. "I'm going to call the police if you don't leave," he said with a scared voice.
One of our team members, Carol, told me that I was not being mean to him and that it looked like he was possessed by a demon as he freaked out. I decided to move on and let the truth of what we proclaimed to him sink into his soul.
But this would not be the only demonic encounter we would have. A few booths further down the path we came upon the "tree-hugger" display and a nice older woman offered us some of her propaganda. I asked her about the claim she was making that global warming was causing all the forest fires.
My question was, "It is my understanding that almost all the forest fires have been man-caused fires and poor management of God's creation." She actually agreed that my observation was right, but that she wanted me to know that she was a scientist for 40 years and knew a lot more about this subject than I did.
I wasn't sure what she was getting at and observed her beginning to twitch and get physically edgy. She told me to leave and I realized this Earth Day was grounded in Satan worship, not being responsible keepers of God's creation.
Donna was with me at that moment and as we walked away, Donna noticed that the demon spirit in her was real and creepy.
Now, I'm a Baptist and not into all the "demons under every rock" stuff, but over my lifetime of ministry, the demons are under a lot of the rocks. Our team has had too many encounters with the darkness hovering over people.
We had a good time at the Earth Day, learning what is really behind the celebration. The most disturbing aspect of the day was seeing all the parents who were taking their small children to each of the displays...God save us!
I did have to cover some of the nudist poster for good reason.
