Thank God for Steve,
First, Mr. President, we do not need more troops in Iraq! What we need is to let the troops that are currently there do their job without the fear of being investigated every time they think about squeezing the trigger. Don't add troops. Instead, eliminate the embedded news media, inform commanders that from this time on, no more charges are to be leveled against the troops in the field, and recall and court-martial any officer who publicly criticizes the troops, including those sitting in Congress. As for those additional 21,500 troops you are preparing to send to Iraq, instead assign them to fight off the invasion of our borders, using the same rules of engagement and weapons as are being used in Iraq. For what good will it do for us to win in Iraq while losing to the invading hordes here in the USA?
Now, to doctors, teachers, parents, and President Bush. This is a thought for all doctors, teachers, parents, and President Bush, not just those who are Saved.
What if Jesus is God? Think about that for a moment. What if Jesus really is who He says He is, God. Jesus is not God because I believe He is, I believe He is because He is God. Likewise, just because you prefer not to think He is God does not make Him any the less God. And because He is God, you will one day kneel before Him and feel either His love or His wrath.
Jesus has said: But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in Me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. (Matthew 18:6 ACP/KJV)
The very first thing you had better understand is the meaning of the word "offend". The Greek word translated offend, in the King James, is skandalizo, it is pronounced; skan-dal-id'-zo and its translation into English is; to entrap, i.e. trip up (figuratively, cause to stumble or entice to sin, apostasy or cause one to have displeasure in the Lord).
You doctors who do things to Christians, young and old, putting profit or lack of knowledge ahead of the well being of your patient are guilty of offending. You teachers that teach evolution, anything but abstinence, or anything else that goes contrary to the Word of God and His word are guilty of offending. You Mr. President, who while professing to be a follower of Christ, have misled many to believe that they can get into heaven in a way other than through what Christ says, you are guilty of offending.
And you parents, to whom God has entrusted a little one, if you fail to measure and judge every action you take against God's word, you are guilty of offending. Are you sure the vaccination for your infant is safe, effective and not interfering in the immune system God has built into your little one?
Parents, teachers, and President Bush, are you sure you want to accuse God of being a liar when you teach and support, as fact, the theory that the world evolved?
Fathers, you sure God was only kidding when He instructed fathers; "The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up."
Again, I don't care if you are a Christian or a non-Christian, you are going to be judged by Christ. It makes no difference whether you believe in Him or not, you are going to kneel before Him and bear either His love or His wrath. And if you are guilty of offending one of His little ones, that would include my granddaughter, my wife, me, Christian men and women in the military, Christian kids in school, and any and all children below the age of reasoning and independence, you are going to feel His wrath.
While this thought is not addressed to the cop on the street, judges, politicians and preachers, you, as well as anyone else that has sway over Children and Christians, had best read this as if it were addressed to you personally, for it is you as well who will be judged by The Christ.
Now for you who are Saved, please pray for Beth, please keep Steve Burzlaff in your prayers, a dear friend of Steve's a Major in the Army recently died in Iraq, please pray for the Majors family. Give praise to God for the church family He has brought Cec, Dan, Kellie, and I to here in Albuquerque.
This morning, as part of my daily reading and study, I read Isaiah 9&10. I think Isaiah 9:11 through 10:4 maybe yet to be fulfilled prophecy. If you are a serious student of history and God's word, I would be interested in hearing from you, use the form at Christian-news-in-maine.com/form.htm . Where it ask for site identification, type in "Isaiah study".
May the Lord bless us and help us to understand that God said exactly what He meant to say and said it exactly the way He meant it, and meant exactly what He said, in His book the Holy Bible, including but not limited to this: If ye love Me, keep My commandments. ... He that hath My commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me: and he that loveth Me shall be loved by My Father, and I will love him, and will manifest Myself to him. ... If ye keep My commandments, ye shall abide in My love; even as I have kept My Father's commandments, and abide in His love.
God's word is not for you to pick and choose between, it is for you to obey totally. You do not want to be found guilty of offending "one of these little ones which believe in Christ," for the penalty is that; it would have been better for you to have died a horrible death before you did it.
Sha'al shalowm Yruwshalaim.
Never ever forget this: There aint no purgatory!

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.
