Dean Saxton is an open air preacher of the gospel at the University of Arizona, Tuscon.
After starting a lifestyle of prayer and bible reading, I started to feel this need to preach, this fire! It was like a fire locked up in my bones. I want to see people saved, to know of heaven and the terror of Hell. There are so many students at the University of Arizona, most of who don’t even know they are headed for Hell. So I decided the only way for me to help get the message out to the masses is to preach.
The only person I knew who was unashamed of the gospel was the head pastor at the church I was attending. But he didn’t have time to go out with me to preach. We had done many hours of EE together in teams. I kept on looking and searching and began praying to God about becoming a man of integrity…I didn’t know what was going to happen, then I saw brother on campus. This is a man who has a reputation of upsetting everyone, and I saw sign that read “the end is near” “give me $$$$” this intrigued my wretched soul. Sitting down, listening to Bro Jed I was intrigued by his presence. It was like none I had ever come across. To see him as good battling the forces of evil was a picture none of my proud pastors would ever stoop down to do.
Jed came on a Thursday and all next week I listened to him as he called girls out on what they actually were. As he battled the Atheists, held his ground. I realized that this was the kind of bold witness I had been waiting for, this is what God had been getting me ready for. Then a voice said “who’s going to do this when he’s gone, who will rise up?” then later in the week a college girl walked over to Bro Jed and gave him a seductive look and a wink and he sat back in his chair thought a bit and came back with “I realize what a temptation I can be to you girls!” I thought the statement was clever and quick, and I might be able to have the same power. By becoming a real man like Jed! At another time I saw Jed was having so much fun. Preaching, living holy, and living an compromised life. Then I heard “you could have just as much” that fun cost me dearly though.
The cost of following Jesus without compromise, with out fear, unashamed will always come at a huge price, everything.
Friday night Bro Jed said “Im an old man and Ive been doing this for about 40 years I’m 70 years old I might not come back, who will rise up?” I stood up, and said “I will” then left.
That night a power over took me that I had felt only in part before. Then I preached that following Monday. Later I had a vision that I was combing the desert looking for the glory of God and then I said I wonder what Moses saw that day? Then I saw his eyes and the back of Gods glory was shown and that was my confirmation I was in the will of God, I didn’t believe Bro Jed was biblical but I did think he was loving only later to find he had the whole counsel!
Also ,when Bro Jed gave his testimony and said that God talked to him and that he was lead by God. I was confronted with a problem either he’s telling the truth and a man of God, or a complete crazy, wacko guy whos out here because… of a lot of reasons. Further more if what he says is true I need to change myself and my doctrine.
I am the troubler of Tucson. I trouble my college campuses I trouble high schools all events that I can in this city. THIS city is being reclaimed for God, because I am a bold witness unashamed of the Gospel. In my ministry I’ve been cursed at, stolen from, threatened with arrest, arrested multiple times, hit into a tree, chased by a bunch of vixens around a church in Florence, choked, beaten with a rebar. Honestly I don’t know how I got out of Europe without getting arrested, I know my credentials are few, but I’m learning.
If you able to become a monthly supporter or just give a gift, it would greatly help me go to Europe to preach.I will be traveling around the states, maybe near you…
