No, there comes a time to shake off the dust against them and move on to others that the Lord might get through to.

Jesus said, "If they don't receive you in one city, go to another."

There's no use in making yourself obnoxious in the Name of Jesus.

NO! It's not okay to minister to people if they dont want you to! You'll just make them angry. I'd pray for them instead.

Son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words,...neither be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house...Speak my words unto them, whether they hear or (refuse to listen). But thou,son of man hear what I say unto thee; Be not rebellious like that rebellious house; open thy mouth, and eat that I give thee. My point? The Father has a message for the rebellious, we must be bold enough to proclaim it. Therefore it is not only OK it will be at some point necessary.

I know it sounds like I'm beating the subject to death, but this is the problem I see with the controversial apostate church e-cards. They are advertised as being "witnessing tools" when it has man's sarcasm written all over it, NOT the Holy Spirit's love, concern, and CLASS. I canNOT envision the Holy Spirit approving of "Witnessing" is such a sarcastic way

If you are lead by the prompting of the Father I share this Eze. 2:1-8 "Son of man, stand upon your feet...I send thee to them...For they are impudent (hard headed) children...say unto them, Thus saith the LORD GOD, whether they hear or forbear yet they shall know that there hath been a prophet among them.

Ministering or witnessing to people is only successful when we allow ourselves to be USED as vessels by the Holy Spirit. It is HE who convicts and leads one to repentance, not us. We're simply the vessel. Too many time we get over-zealous and do not wait for Him to open the door of oportunity. HE knows when one is receptive and ready to hear the Gospel. We must follow His lead

When it comes to those who are not interested, I allow my walk with christ to speak for me. If they open the door a bit, I give a bit. I never bombard them, but I also don't back down. If I'm asked something, or there is a comparison I can make, I make the opportunity count.

That's what your knees are for.

There's also a time, place, and manner to approach people to talk about Jesus.

If Jesus tried to buttonhole everyone He met and badger them until they "made a decision for Christ" right on the spot, He never would have left Nazareth.
