After preaching in the subway for many years to the general population, as I was seeking the Lord even in the midst of some challenging personal discernment battles over what the Lord wanted me to do, I finally asked Him a point-blank question, "what do you want me to do?" The answer was both succinct and clear, "I want you to preach to the Jews!" This wasn't necessarily what I wanted to do and it would be another step-challenge in obedience to the Lord, because of the command's additional requirement, which would include being even more visibly public above ground, because I knew the location already, that is, at least where it was He wanted me to start. It was also personal for two reasons. The first is that I had grown up in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood and the second because my father had revealed a short while before he passed, that he himnself had a desire and unfulfilled vision to preach to the Jews in that same neighborhhod near the synagogues, stating this to me when I don't think he knew of my subway activities. After a few short trials preaching specifically to the Jews, some time elapsed because of a change in my weekly schedule, but when re-seeking the Lord again for direction, once again I was reminded by the Lord of His desire for me, and I was given a very clear sense that "preaching to the Jews" was a very deep desire of the heart for Jesus. Knowing what to say and how to say it, when and where, is something you can pray for me for.
