Harley Davidson Motorcycles
This is my means of escape. My wife and I love to get away to the mountains. We really don't get to go very often, but when we can we will. It is a lot of fun to trailer the bike behind our camper to Ashville, N.C. and use the camper for a home base. Today we will take this road all day, tomorrow that road. Scenery is beautiful in October.
I have been riding since the mid 60's. I bought this bike in September of 1998 and unfortunately we don't get to ride as often as we like. I brought it home for the first time, parked it in the shed, and poured oil all over it. Yep! I anointed it with oil. Now this is not what most people would do with a $25000.00 Harley. I said a prayer dedicating it to the Lord's service, that in some way I could use it for the work of the ministry. I have used it and attempted to witness while on rides, but it seems bikers are not usually willing to listen to that sort of thing. However once in a while some one will sit still long enough to hear.
One day, if I continue to endure, I know I will snatch someone right out of Satan's hand. You can't do that with Jesus. Once you are His, you will remain in His hand as long as you want to be there, but Satan is different. You can take people right away from him. He usually doesn't like that. It is my prayer that Satan comes to know me by name.
You know, most people don't really try to witness for the Lord. They go to church on Sunday, say a prayer at the supper table, back to church next Sunday, and on and on. You know what? Satan doesn't know those people. I remember a scripture where Satan didn't know someone. They were trying to cast out a devil.
Acts 19:13 Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preached.
Acts 19:14 And there were seven sons of one Sieve, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so.
Acts 19:15 And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?
Acts 19:16 And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.
I have made up my mind. I want that rascal to know me. To be a thorn in his flesh. As all of us should be.
