Solar Eclipse Evangelism: Jesus Blocks God's Judgment Like the Moon Blocks the Sun

Solar Eclipse Evangelism: Jesus Blocks God's Judgment Like the Moon Blocks the Sun Read Transcript

Princeton, Kentucky, is just about a mile

away from where NASA says the eclipse will

be at its most intense.

Thousands of people have flocked to the small town

to view this once in a lifetime event.

And a ministry in the area decided

this was a great opportunity to share

the gospel with those guests.

The event is called Solquest, and it's

hosted by HR Ministries.

Joining us right now is Harrell Riley,

who came up with the idea.

So, you're about two hours away from the eclipse happening.

Describe the atmosphere right now.

It's very exciting.

We have a lot of folks coming in the front gate still.

As they do, that we have a map up front.

Folks are marking it from all over the globe.

We've got about probably 2,000-plus people here right


And as I'm speaking, we have a science guy

on the main stage sharing the gospel as I speak,

with some presentations related to science,

followed by Robbie Zachariah's ministry.

And then we're handing out 5,000 pairs of free glasses.

And then we're all going to come out

on the field to see this great event that only God can do.

HOST: Now, I know that your idea for this

was to share God's love.

How are you doing that?

We're doing that.

All the yellow shirts you see behind me [INAUDIBLE]..

The reality is this.

People have been sharing bottles of water,

we've been hauling campers to the camp site,

we've had several different presentations

from the crazy science guy.

We got cowboy armor, [INAUDIBLE] clowns,

Longworth Ministries [INAUDIBLE] chairs.

There were five people saved the other night in that.

There's been a total reported of about 20 people that's

come to faith in Christ.

And we are glad to be sharing that the globe at this point.

HOST: That's beautiful.

Boy, more than 20 have come to Christ.

Are those asking spiritual questions?

Yes, sir.

I said are others asking spiritual questions?

Has the eclipse sparked a spiritual hunger?

We see a lot of folks through the mix

of things, that are really, really

hungering for the sun itself.

To check out what's going on.

We've had some very interesting conversations.

The biggest thing that I would tell people about this event,

is because there have been people here that serve people.

People have really been blown away

by the graciousness of people, of the free water

and those get things.

Which has given the avenue for us

to be able to share the gospel.

So in the mix of excitement, and the draw

for people to come out and be a part of it.

We get people parked out on the highway

at 5 o'clock this morning.

I think it's--

I don't know that it's a spiritual hunger,

as much as curiosity hunger.

But in that curiosity, us interrupting them

with graciousness and freedom, they

have been very receptive to listen

to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

From Muslims, to Hindus, to folks

that really don't even care.

Wow, so what happens when the eclipse passes overhead?

Well, about 20 minutes beforehand,

all [INAUDIBLE] large telescope.

There's a whole lot of tents set up.

I believe everybody will be sitting

in the grass in the mix of things.

So that in the heat of the sun out here,

it's going to start shadowing up.

And then, the whole process [INAUDIBLE] see the corona.

And when that moon blocks the sun, they [INAUDIBLE] corona--

a spectacular event.

And one of our folks shared with us the other day,

it's kind of the way that Jesus stepped in front of God

to keep us from His judgement.
