Thank God for Steve,
As many of you know, I visit a man in prison, for a murder I do not believe he committed. The search of his house was clearly unconstitutional. Yet he has been in prison now for some 12 years, with no end in sight. Yet, the self confessed murderer of over 100 people, Dr. Kevorkian is about to be turned loose. Bill Clinton, a rapist, a traitor, a self confessed and found guilty of perjurer, is treated like royalty and walks the streets not only free, but protected by armed men being paid with money extorted from you and me by the US government. It will shortly be a felony for a US citizen to enter Canada or Mexico without a valid US Passport, but it is a misdemeanor for a non-US citizen to break into the US from Mexico or Canada.
God has warned us of a time like this for He has said: Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! But, one day this will change, for God has also said: and upon His kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
Spend a day or two sitting in our courts and you will come away knowing that justice in the USA, for the most part, is dead. The police, the prosecutors, the judges and for the most part the juries, do not care about justice. What they care about is locking up someone to pay for a crime. The prosecutor and the police can then brag about solving 90% of the crime. It no longer seems to make any difference whether that person is guilty or not.
Today we are going to look at two complete verses, one and a half of which Hallmark and other card companies have made famous.
For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon His kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this. (Isaiah 9:6&7 ACP/KJV)
First let's clear up a thing or two. Jesus is not being called Wonderful and Counselor, it is one title, Wonderful Counselor. Wonderful Counselor is in the Hebrew; pele' which means a miracle and yo`ets which means King, so Wonderful Counselor is better translated Miracle King. So let's look at how the cards should read. For unto us a royal Child is born, unto us the royal Son is born, the Child and Son to whom all power and sovereignty is completely given. The titles that will best describe Him are The Miracle King, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, and the King of Peace.
I use King of Peace because the word translated by many as Prince is the Hebrew word Sar, and Prince just is not a strong enough or royal enough term to do justice to the Hebrew word Sar. It is, to my way of thinking, much better to use King. Look it up and see for yourself. In 1611, a prince who had reached the age of manhood was every bit as powerful as his father the king, but today we look at prince and see a spoiled clown waiting in the wings for his father, the king, to die so that he can take over. Kings and princes today are just spoiled figure heads, not at all like the kings of 1611 and before, men who had the rule of life and death, men who led the charge in battle. Just go back and read about the kings of the old testament. Read 1 Kings 3:1-25 and pay attention to the decree of the king in verse 25.
Let us continue.
Of the increase of His empire will be complete safety and peace which shall be no end. From the seed of those descendants from the king(s) who sat upon the throne of David shall He come, and upon his kingdom, to fashion, establish, confirm and to set it up. And this is pretty much where most of the cards stop, but it is the next half of verse 7 that we want to concentrate on, for it is here that we see the promise of the end of the injustice and unequal justice we find in the governments, courts, police and media of the world today.
And to create within this kingdom a system of true and honest divine law with justice that shows no regard for human position but is honest, fair, just and equal to all, regardless of position, king or slave, man or women, beggar or chief of police, from henceforth even for ever. And to insure this happens and that it is not corrupted, The zeal of the LORD of the armies of heaven will guarantee it this.
Why is this such a great time to look forward to? I have mentioned the injustice of the courts, the police, the judges and the rulers of the governments at the beginning of this thought, but now I want to quote to you out a book that every parent should read: Vaccinations Deception or Tragedy by Michael Dye.
"In 1905, the Philippines had a mortality rate of 10% due to smallpox. After a massive vaccination program, it reached epidemic proportions, killing 25% of the population, by now vaccinated. Despite this, the authorities stepped up the vaccinations. In 1918 the worst epidemic killed 54% of the people there, at a time when 95% of the population had been vaccinated. Manila, the capital, where everyone had been vaccinated or re-vaccinated, was the hardest hit with 65%. The Island of Mindanao, where the inhabitants had refused to be vaccinated, was the least hit, with 11%..."
Remember the verse we started with: "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" Many liberal scholars and theologians dispute that the Old Testament is for today, but they are wrong. They are amongst those that God is talking about in the above verse. But so are those who vaccinate children knowing full well, or by their own laziness and ignorance, that the vaccinations are, in most cases, more dangerous than the disease. And woe unto the parent who has his or her child vaccinated without demanding to see the results of the independent double blind study showing the vaccine to be both safe and effective.
In the words of the beloved Apostle, John, "Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus." Amen.

The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all and please keep your pastor and me in your prayers. Amen. My prayer daily is "Lord please bless those tenfold who bless me."
Pray for the President, pray for Attorney General John Ashcroft, pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
All Scripture quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, except when done by a guest, is from the ACP/authorized 1611 King James Version. The words in red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
