Kirk Cameron Open-Airs At His Own Movie!

I can hardly believe that Kirk Cameron open aired after his own movie (FIREPROOF) and I got to be there to see it, TONIGHT.

A group of us went to see the movie after the Transformed Conference in West Virginia. We were all eager to attend, even though we had already seen the movie, but Kirk and Ray Comfort had plans to preach the Gospel after the film and that's exactly what they did!

I think I cried more the second time around than the first time. It was probably because I was sitting next to Kirk's mom (Barbara Cameron) and she crying harder than I was...it was pretty contagious.

Once the film ended, Kirk and Ray walked up to the front of the movie and as the lights came on Kirk began to speak. You could hear gasps in the audience. Ladies were covering their mouths all around the theater. It was almost surreal that the very actor that they were watching on the movie screen for the past two hours was standing in front of them in living color!

Many of the staff of Living Waters were shocked, even through we were in on the plan, it was unreal for us so we were eager to see the crowds reaction. The individuals were glued listening to every word as Kirk and Ray spoke.

Kirk revealed one of the great secrets of the movie, that he didn't kiss the actress but instead kissed his wife that flew in, especially for the scene.

Then Ray stood up and preached the law and the Gospel and everyone in the audience cheered, including us.

What a wonderful end to an already great day at Transformed!

Yes the movie was truley awesome and God's presence and GOODNESS came through to me and I must say that I was shocked by the outcome concerning my life..If anyone out there thinks that they are saved as I did then put yourself through the test of God's command's and see if you match as I did with Ray and Kirk!! I didn't match and I would go straight to HELL if I had died today and I am a pretty good guy..huh! I understand his GRACE & LOVE and there is much to change and much to learn!! I Billy Dillinger was saved tonight in that very theater with Kirk and Ray praying with me and my cofession of my sin to Jesus. Looking in the mirror and facing my destiny due to my sin has been a miracle and I know this!! I pray that this soul saving blessing will effect America in a way never experienced before...

How totally cool is that? I'm jealous (in a Christ-like manner, of course!). :-)

The most important thing...I pray that the lives of many were changed by the movie and the events that followed.

All Glory to God!

Anna "Banana" Jackson said...

Billy praise God for your profession of faith. I'm so glad you posted these comments on my blog. All Glory be to God for what He HAS done in you and what He WILL do in you in the days to come! God bless you brother.

That is great!!! Our group of 3 that went to Transformed were BLOWN away... I have been listening to you all for about two months now... What a great testimony for Kirk to get up and speak after the movie.. God Bless You all!!

Linda Martin said...

WOW!!! That's great! My 16 year old daughter open-aired in our theater the first night it came out. We were able to hand out hundreds of tracts before the show and then immediately after (while the credits rolled) she stood up and began to preach the True Gospel of Christ!! It was an awesome sight! I would have loved to have been there with you all as well!

Misty*Dawn said...

Wow! That's wonderful!! My 16 year old daughter open-aired in our theater the Friday night that it came out!! It was amazing! We were able to hand out hundreds of tracts before the show and immediately after (while the credits rolled) She stood up and began to preach the True Gospel of Christ! It was an awesome sight!! I would have LOVED to be there with you guys as well! God is AWESOME!!

Patrick Burwell said...

Trish,
Wow. Can you imagine what Kirk now thinks? It was all worth it for just one "Billy." You can bet there are a lot more than one too.
Well done Kirk Cameron. Well done Ray Comfort (who is the reason Kirk is SO on fire now. Ray hung in there all those years and stayed faithful. Yes, I know, Ray, I know. But it IS true brother...).
Thank you Jesus (YASHUA) for your love and your willingness to die for us. Thank you Father for sending your Son.
Us "Billys" are VERY VERY grateful.

Praise God the light shines in the darkness, the light of the glory of God in the face of Christ! His mercies are new every morning, great is His faithfulness! I thank God for the fellowship of believers gained through obedience to the preaching of His Word. God bless you Trish, Ray, and Kirk!

Matt Johnson said...

Just another example of the godly man that Kirk is. I just love that guy!

I too am jealous, as the previous commentor, in a Christ-like manner.... Couldn't make this Transformed, and missed this. Trish, we simply must put in another request for him to do it again!

Fish with Trish said...

I know Matt...that would be great. I'd love to see it all one more time.

I was in the van on the ride back to the hotel with Kirk, his mom (Barbara), Ray and a couple others and I said, "Kirk, you should make a habit of dong this especially on a night when you're bored and have nothing to do :-) ...you could go to go to theatre after theatre and preach the Gospel...imagine all the people that will be blessed."

jose said...

Rob Hughes said...

Hey Trish

What a wonderful post to read!! How awesome is the Lord. Praise His holy name!!

What an amazing opportunity and so awesome that Kirk and Ray seized it with both hands.

Soli Deo Gloria!!!

ncollins said...

Trish,

If Kirk spends $7.00 a showing and keeps going from theater to theater, and he didn't get paid to do the film,, he'll be the first actor in history to lose millions on a film.

Those prosperity preachers would have to advise against this strategy. :)

Blessings,
Neil

I have been truly blessed, I am a student at WV state Univ. and I must say that since Sat. night I am profoudly sure that God wants me to be a witness and I feel that I would not be in his will if I simply didn't know this as the way it is! Yes I have fear but but when I get scared I remember what I heard Ray and Kirk say, "the most couragous men are the ones who have the most fear" and I know my lord is with me and wants me to praise him and not not look for the praises of men!! I share my new faith and am learning all I can for I see that I can't give away what I don't have...this has just about prompted me to change my major to communications but I am still in prayer about that!! I just want to be used..as I said billyd4god!! Thanks to you guys Trish and the work being done so manyincluding me are and will be blessed!!

Chris said...

Everyone one of us have a "Billy" out there in this world that we are supposed to talk to. Go out and find them! Its our duty! Mark Cahill said a great quote. "We must engage the culture before the culture engages us!" Thanks Kirk, Ray, Todd, EZ, Trish, Mark, (Spence and Cahill), and every other WOTM'ite that's out there doing the work of Gods kingdom. Love you all!!

Reading Billy's testimony brought tears to my eyes. I don't like crying! Thank you so much for sharing that Billy. G-d is so amazing and kind and gracious. I'm taking a friend that I've been witnessing to for about a month to see Fireproof tomorrow. His name is Jose. If y'all could please keep him in your prayers I'd appreciate it.

Patrick Roberts said...
