The Edge of Hell and the Beast

Posted: October 31, 2010 in Uncategorized

Tonight we went to an area in Kansas City where there were four different haunted houses set up, as an outreach. Two of the houses were named “the Edge of Hell” and “The Beast” . I wasn’t sure what to expect, and I have to tell you, I was pretty caught up in the spectacle. There was so much to take in, I had a hard time getting into a witnessing mode. We did talk to a few people, and in a couple of situations, I felt some leading by the Holy Spirit to say some things, but for the most part, it was tough.
There was a lot of resistance, spiritually and in the natural. The security got wind of some of the team, and asked one of the Evangelism Institutes guys to leave the property. Apparently, the people running the houses have rented a few block area to prevent groups from witnessing near the houses. They were also blasting music VERY loudly near the entrances to prevent anyone form having any significant conversations.
As we were leaving, my group spoke to a parking attendant who told us that the actors all got together before the event started and had some kind of “cheer” or something that could be heard throughout the whole area. Couldn’t help think of it as a “prayer meeting” of the worst kind. She also told us that she giggled that Christians were coming out to witness to people because it made the whole thing seem more “real”. We explained that these things are real, and she giggled more. I asked her name, and told her we would be praying for her after we left. She was okay with that. We prayed that God would scare the hell out of her in dreams – literally. I believe He will. We also prayed that He would encounter her with His love and mercy. Again, He will.
This was certainly an experience, and I wish I had the opportunity to do it again because next time I think I would be more prepared and not so absorbed in the spectacle.
