Notes from a message by Brother Bill Eubanks
Speaking at an annual West Coast Street Preaching Convention

Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
·         Don't worry about results, put the Word of God out there and let the Holy Spirit do His work; none of this one, two, three Jesus saves me.

 Ecclesiastes 11:1 Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.

·         Approaching one million tracts handed out striving for total of two or three million tracts handed out.

·         Don't trivialize the small things, you never know what's going to happen; you may give out a tract today and a person gets saved that may go on to win Cuba or something.

·         We do sign boarding, banners, tracts and street preaching.

·         I don't know a better way to get the Gospel to somebody than through tracts.

·         Have follow-up info on tract if possible

·         Mix up tracts so that if five people come along then each person will get a different title.

·         I like to walk when I pass out tracts I don't like to stand on a corner.

·         I walk toward the people and position myself to give them a tract, I maneuver so I do the work and sometime place it into their hand.

·         I don't say anything, I think it worsens your position if you beg them, if they say what is that, I say happiness, you want some? They know what you're trying to do.

·         There are so many advantages to walking. In the summer time they leave their windows down so just I pop a tract in there and if the sunroof is open, pop, pop just keep walking, keep walking.

·         Every once in a while a vehicle will illuminate in front of me and I will put a tract on that vehicle.

·         What if the alarm goes off? Just keep walking.

·         When you walk there are so many advantages; there may be a telephone booth and you can put one there, a door or something and you're looking and when you are walking people know you are on a mission.

·         They know you are not after their money we don't ever force tracts on anybody; while shopping you may drop one into somebody's bag and that's okay.

·         You should dress as nicely as you can and usually more people take tracts the better you are dressed.

·         If there is a row of people then offer the first person a tract, if they refuse then go to the next and let each person respond for themselves.

·         Use good quality tracts

·         I'd rather take the chance of trying to do something for God and give out a few tracts than not doing anything for the Lord.

·         You can get a phone book and get them in the mail to people. If you can get the tract in the home then the Holy Spirit can get in there and work.

·         Get it out there and if they don't want it you just give it to the next person and don't say nothin', just be the messenger boy.

·         Go where the people are, we go out around the noon hour when people are on lunch or times people get off work.

·         I don't go out at night they can't see you, they don't know if you are going to mug them or something; use your head.

·         If one is preaching then the other should hand out tracts away from the preaching because you get a lot more tracts out that way.

·         Pass out tracts at outside restaurants and you come along and don't say nothin' just put them on the table and they say hey, hey but just keep walking and they aren't going to chase you down the street and I never take tracts back. And if someone says they are a believer and tries to give it back then I say well then you know somebody who is not a believer so give it to them and encourage them to do something for God, I'll say you can pass out and least one gospel tract in your life.

·         When we go to restaurants we tract the restaurant which can get a bit dicey sometimes and by the time the manager comes you are leaving and say have a nice day nice place you got here. If they say "Hey you can't do that here" just say "All right" and go on your way.

What I Love About Street Preaching
Rekindle the Zeal

  • It takes away the fear of man
  • It is a statement that as a Christian “I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ”
  • It is a publick occupation for Christ (taking a stand)
  • The Christian bears the reproach of Christ
  • The signs put the Word of God into their hearts and minds as the passers buy read the signs as I see their lips move
  • It is a warning to those who reject Christ
  • It shows the community that Christians are taking a stand and are not silenced
  • It is a direct in your face opportunity that leaves everyone around without excuse
  • The Word of God is presented and the Bible read so they do not have a choice and they hear and they know and they can’t close their eyes or plug their ears they must deal with the Gospel today
  • It builds up the Christian’s zeal for one on one getting the Word out at work and in daily conversation wherever the man of God goes
  • It salts down the community with God’s Word
  • It gives the saint first hand experience to know how wicked the world is against Christ and His Gospel
  • It is exciting when doing something that very few will ever do that is to speak loud and proclaim the Gospel in publick
  • It emboldens the man of God to walk an holy walk in every day of life with family and others
  • Street preaching helps fulfill the charge to “Preach the Word”
  • It is good experience in how to deal with difficult people as they come up and talk to you on the street
  • It is good experience in how to deal with difficult Christians who live weak lives for Christ
  • It is exhilarating
  • It is the opposite of stealth tactics of place a tract and hope no one will see you
  • It places ones light on top of the bushel for all to see instead of hiding it under the bushel
  • It is foolish (the preaching part not the message)
  • It offends many
  • It gives some Christians hope and encouragement to live a more aggressive life in Christ with less fear of man
  • Publick ministry that is getting out into the publick places is prevalent in the Bible
  • More people are reached in 45 minutes than are reached in many churches in a decade
  • At a busy corner you can communicate (verbally or by sign or banner) a Bible message to hundreds of people or more within an hour’s time. Just position yourself near a major advertising sign and the demographics have already been done for you
  • When you occupy for Christ where you are, then nobody needs to be sent to do your job where you are. Everyone else is free then to serve Christ Where they are. Just imagine if all Christians were salt and light where they are then nobody would have to go anyplace else to preach
  • It keeps you in the forefront of the battle and thereby keeps you primed for the good fight
  • It gives you an up front view of what is in the heart of man as you preach to passers by
  • It encourages the saints to have courage to get back into the battle for Jesus
  • It keeps you battle ready at all times
  • It gives you experience and history serving the Lord that makes you stronger as you go
  • You mature faster as a Christian in all areas of your life
  • It fuels zeal for Christ
  • I miss it when I haven’t done it for awhile because it makes me feel good
  • It is time well spent
  • It is an opportunity to preach the whole Gospel and the whole Word of God
  • It is an opportunity to preach the Word and let the Bible bless, curse, condemn, uplift the unsaved that Jesus Christ died for.
  • You get to be salt and light by preaching the Biblical Truth
  • At least somebody is doing something in my area, because I do not see any evangelism anywhere around here.
  • It is a time to give out the Word of God to the Glory of God.
    What Street Preaching Isn't
  • It is not the end of ministry, there is plenty more to do
  • It cannot give people a knowledge of Christ such as reading the Gospel of John can
  • It isn’t a ministry many Christians or sinner like very much
  • It isn’t for sissies
  • It doesn’t mean you are special or great
  • It is not something that YOU have to do
  • It is not a substitute or replacement for anything
  • You do not have to act stupid or obnoxious when preaching
  • You do not have to be rude or mean
  • You do not have to be embarrassed
  • You do not have to learn apologetics
  • You do not have to give a performance or show
  • You do not have to strive to draw a crowd
  • You do not need gimmicks or gadgets
  • You do not have to have nor do you need a banner or sign
  • You don’t even need to yell or speak out loud if you don’t want to
  • Publick ministry is nothing but giving out the Word of God in publick places
  • However, you don’t have to keep silent, you can speak up and preach the gospel
  • You don’t have to use your own words; you can preach Bible verses only if you want
  • It shouldn’t be all about you
  • It isn’t a blast session where you verbally tear people apart
  • It isn’t an opportunity to tell everyone that they are worthless sinners and will all go to hell
  • It isn’t an opportunity to make yourself feel good by verbally condemning everyone to hell
  • You can develop and prepare a sermon and deliver it in publick; it doesn’t have to be extemporaneous.
  • It probably isn’t happening where you are unless you decide to go

The Neglected Essentials of Life


The day of your birth is the single most important event of your life, an event for which you exercised neither collusion nor permission.  Yet you participated in all aspects of that event in full cooperation, without a willful choice. The creation of your life was thrust upon you in a moment of quintessential magnificence when in that instance you became who you are.

You were created and given the gift of life as a unique individual of which there are no duplicates.  You began as a thought in the mind of God who willed you into existence by divine fiat.

Through Divine Providence you survived your first bold encounter with life; and experienced your first miracle, the breath of life.

Once the trauma of birth had passed, you began to grow in innocence for many years. You were given care and decisions were made on your behalf without your input or consent. You trusted your caretakers with a childlike faith and an ignorance of life while experiencing the cycles and connections of life through the perpetuity of providence. You knew nothing, but you began to pay attention. You slowly gained knowledge and even more slowly gained experience; and eventually, understanding!

You were unaccountable during the infant years; but at some unknown moment in time your accountability arrived based upon the development of your experience and understanding.

You understood right and wrong, good and bad, love and hate, sin and righteousness and also cause and effect that wrong thinking brought about wrong action which then brought judgment upon you.

You were no longer innocent; now you were responsible for your decisions and held accountable by God. The second phase of your life had begun: The consciousness of choice, responsibility and accountability; the conflict had begun.


What many people do not know or understand is that we are born with an inheritance. Something happened before we were born that will affect us for the rest of our lives. We were born with a fallen degenerate nature. Our souls were born disconnected from fellowship with God. True, his providential hand brought us through the period of innocence to the accountability stage, to where we are right now: A freewill agent accountable to the will and sovereignty of God for our decisions and actions in this life.

Because of the failure and disobedience in what Adam and Eve did (Genesis 3), all of creation is accursed, fallen and in a state of active rebellion with their Creator, the God of the universe.

Therefore man is currently in a state of condemnation and judgment decreed by the Lord God of the Universe. (John 3:16-21)

It is essential that the following be understood:

·         You were born separated from God

·         You are a sinner

·         Your heart is wicked continually

·         At your best you are altogether vanity

·         You deserve hell for your rebellion against God

·         The righteousness of man is an abomination to God

·         It is impossible for man to measure up to God's standard

·         Our condemnation is on account of our darkened heart and soul not God's will

·         His indignation is kindled by the wickedness of man
Do not despair; the third essential brings hope!


You have a future; all of your sins (past, present and future) were forgiven before you were born! But! They are still held to your charge conditional upon your freewill choices and decisions.

 Man is unable to satisfy the righteousness of God, and unable to atone for their sins since the best that mankind can offer is self-righteousness, and that is rooted in pride and conceit which is abominable to God. The first sin was pride and all subsequent sins are rooted in the pride of self- will and self-deification (displacing God with self).

Listen to the following essentials very carefully!:

·         You can never become acceptable to God on your own

·         Your sinful nature has sentenced you to Hell

·         There is no good thing within you

·         Your best effort can only earn you death and Hell (and it has, that's what we have earned)

·         There is no amount of "Good Works" that you can perform that can change your condition!

·         What you are, and where you are going is a sure thing! Unless You realize and act upon the following Biblical truths about God's plan of reconciliation!!!

·         God knows all about you, there is nothing hidden that is not manifest to God.


·         You are a creation of God

·         He loves you

·         He is jealous over you

·         He paid the penalty of death that belongs to you by placing it upon His only Son!

·         He has prepared a place for you

·         He wants to give you eternal life

·         He wants your fellowship, worship,  praise and adoration

·         He created you and you belong to Him. Everything belongs to Him!

·         If you reject Him, there is only one other place to go: The Lake of Fire!

·         This is God's universe and he runs things His way! You may have a better way, but you don't have a universe! (McGee).

·         Rejection of Christ is the unpardonable sin from which there can be no recovery!

·         The free choice is yours...death seals your decision

·         If you choose Christ now and exercise faith, you will have eternal life

·         Read the King James Bible 1611 all the way through over and over again.

The most important fact to understand is this: You cannot Get saved, enter into heaven, obtain everlasting life and avoid eternal damnation for your sins based upon your own righteousness. The only way you can get into heaven is with Christ's righteousness--Get That! You are morally and spiritually bankrupt and unable on your own to possess eternal life. Only through the death, burial and resurrection and the shed blood of Jesus Christ can you get saved.

You must believe (faith) on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved. You must repent; turn from your old life of self-serving ego sins of pride and rebellion and follow the Lord Jesus Christ with your whole being forever.  Having done that, you are now a child of God who is providentially taken care of for the rest of your life on this earth and in His everlasting kingdom.

If you believed on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 10:9-10)(John 3:16-21), then you are beginning an eternal personal relationship with the Creator of the Universe, The LORD Jesus Christ, so, your assignment is to read the King James Bible 1611 all the way through and commit yourself to following all that it says. Email me ( and I will help you in your new life!


The first essential did not allow you any choices; your birth

The second essential only confirmed all the choices in life are self condemning; the fall

The third essential tells us God has made a provision for man's shortcomings and can annul mans sentence to eternal perdition; God's reconciliation through His Son Jesus Christ

But if you have rejected the Lord Jesus Christ then all that awaits you is the judgment of God and the eternal lake of fire!

Life is too short and cruel to live it without Christ. God has given His Son to rescue you from the condemnation of sin and the execution of His judgment. He created you to fellowship with Him. He created the universe for you and He knows what's best for you, and you belong to Christ anyway, so, will He be your Judge or your Saviour? You decide...                             

 Life is a maybe/Death is for sure/Sin is the cause/Christ is the cure

How I would home school my children,
If I could do it over again!

When we began to Home School our children we spared no cost to obtain the very best materials for our children's education. Thousands of dollars later I discovered that was a big mistake.

Deciding upon what type of education you want for your children will drive your choice of the type of education plan you want. If you want what the world wants for your child then why bother home schooling. Many home schooling families simply duplicate the curriculum that the public schools use, so they may as well just put them in public school. You will be happier if you go the public route because that will best prepare them for the worldly liberal college education they need to obtain and to achieve their worldly college degrees. Home school methods are frowned upon by the worldly scholastic system. It will be more difficult to obtain the worlds certification requirements through home schooling. But if you don't mind extra hard work then it can be done. Just study and grade high on GED and HSEE tests and all college entrance exams etc....  If your child is a genius then all you need to do is dazzle everyone with their brilliance in their worldly liberal educational pursuits. And I mean prodigiously dazzle!

But if you want the best education for mind, body and soul that will serve them well all the years of their life and provide them with an education that makes them...wiser than their enemies, to understand more than their teachers and understand more than all the ancients:

Ps 119:98 Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me.

Ps 119:99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation

Ps 119:100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts...

Then here is my advice from someone who has been there and done that...

First of all here is a list of my favorite curriculum programs for the Christian homeschooler. The best part of these programs is that it is a one-time purchase that takes your child from kindergarten through high school and beyond. Once you see the contents of these programs you then will realize you didn't need to purchase them at all because you can compile all the necessary information on your own for just the cost of the materials, which is what I would have done in the first place; and eventually what I finally did in the end.

The Robinson curriculum

The Robinson curriculum gives you everything on CD, DVD or maybe now it's just a download but you get hundreds of classic books that if read will cover the information for most of the subjects taught in school to include history, writing well, vocabulary etc. through reading the classics and everything else except mathematics for which they suggest Saxon math which I did not like. Also the complete Encyclopedia Britannica 1911 edition which is the last reliable encyclopedia before the revisionist movement changed everything to be politically correct and anti-Biblical.
A friend of ours used this program and their son is very intelligent, but then he is a voracious reader.

The Weaver Curriculum

We purchased this curriculum in its infancy when the premise of the program was to use the Bible as the guiding tool starting from Genesis to Revelation to teach all the subjects as they occur in the Bible text. For example in Genesis we first run into civilizations, so you do research to develop your own material to supplement the Bible as you go along from subject to subject.

I linked to what I think is the complete version of the program with no idea what the content is at this point. Obviously you can do this on your own but I'm assuming the program has already done the legwork for you and provides the teaching materials.


I looked into unschooling near the end as an option to consider but at that point it was too late. Basically unschooling is student driven learning where you expose the child to as much as possible and then teach what the child has chosen or shown to have the highest interest in as the primary focus. A bit stupid as a premise I think but basically you teach whatever feels best at the time.


There was a news story about a man who homeschooled his daughter (unschooling method) and had taught her to pilot an airplane. I'm not sure of the girls age but he was having her perform a takeoff in the family's small aircraft when some unexpected crosswinds caused the aircraft to crash upon takeoff killing the father and daughter. Tragically the young girl was probably not experienced enough to handle the unexpected crosswinds. Unfortunately stories like this bring down criticism upon homeschooling.
Another sad story was an incident where younger children were being allowed to fire full automatic firearms at a shooting range under strict supervision from adults. During one incident a young girl was firing a fully automatic Mac-10. The recoil caused the girl to lose control of the firearm and the barrel recoiled up and backward shooting the instructor in the head and killing him.

The most recent story was of a gun enthusiast mom was driving her car with her child in the back seat either in a child car seat or just buckled into the regular car seat. This lady had boasted previously that she allowed her I think 4 year old child to shoot her firearm at the range under supervision. Well for some reason the child in the back seat had access to mom's loaded firearm and shot her through the from seat. Fortunately it was not fatal and I think she recovered but you can imagine the ridicule and criticism of such behavior.

I think that all of these situations were with children who were homeschooled, but I am not positive. At any rate there is a tendency to become fixated upon excelling our children beyond their means to display to the world the superiority of homeschooling.

Here is what I would do:

As a Christian parent I want the education for my children that will best serve them for their whole life from birth to the grave! The best way to do that is start with the most important tool available, the King James Bible. Read it to them over and over again until they can read it for themselves over and over again! Teach them that it is their final authority in and for their lives, forever. If you fail here you fail with everything else. Lay the best foundation down first and then build upon it! If they fail later in life they will still have a solid foundation to start building again but if their foundation is sinking sand and they fail then the failure is catastrophic. Instead of starting over with a solid foundation they will have to start from scratch if that is even possible at the time.

Next I would purchase two sets of encyclopedias (sets cost only dollars on Amazon used books) one Funk and Wagnall and the other, Grolier. I would also add a World Almanac and dictionary to the mix. Then develop a list of a hundred or more books that they should read. There are a lot of good lists to go by to decide from: Will Durant has a 100 book list, Marc Faber has a book list as do other prominent people. These lists are secular, you can choose your own list that is best.

Go through the entire sets of encyclopedias with your child emphasizing or deemphasizing topics as you choose. This will give them a well rounded world view. Supplement other materials that you think would compliment what you are trying to achieve. If you read 50 to 100 books on one subject it is said you will have acquired the equivalent knowledge in that subject comparable to a PhD, Brian Tracy.

Teach them how to teach themselves. Teach them how to do independent research and find any answer to any question by themselves. Teach them how to read a book, some you read all the way through some are reference only and you can skim them to glean the information you want. Teach them Discernment by the Word of God. Teach them that Knowledge puffeth up and that the wrong knowledge can send you to hell! The kind taught in liberal colleges, universities and seminaries.

The two most important considerations in the world:

The most important thing in life is knowing Him!

The second most import thing is to realize there is only one important thing, knowing Him!
