If you husbands will love your wife as Christ loves the Church, you won't need to raise your voice or hit her, for she will love you so much that she will revere you. God Himself has ordained it: Unto the woman He said, ... your desire shall be to your husband, and he shall rule over thee. (Genesis 3:16b ACP/KJV)

Thank God for Steve,
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.
Jesus ascended into heaven back in 33AD, and that has now been over 1,973 years ago. 1,973 years of silence, not silence to those of us who are Saved, but silence to the unsaved. We do get some hints as to when He will return, we are for instance told that:
But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark.
And we know what those days, just prior to His return to rapture His Bride, us the true Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian community, also known as the Church of Philadelphia, will be like:
Many shall come in My name, saying, 'I am Christ'; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are but the beginning of sorrows.
And we know what it will be like here on earth after the Lord has come and Raptured us. He has spoken of it in Matthew 24, as well as in Luke, Mark and of course Revelation chapters six through nineteen. Way too much for me to quote here, so let us look at only what the Lord had to say to us via the pen of Matthew:
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for My name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet (Daniel 9:21-27), stand(ing) in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, 'Lo, here is Christ', 'or there'; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect (Saved).
Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, 'Behold, He is in the desert'; go not forth: 'behold, He is in the secret chambers'; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles(vultures and carrion eating birds) be gathered together.
Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. (Matthew 24:9-31 ACP/KJV)
But should it be this long, over 1,973 years? Should we still be waiting? For after all, when one reads Paul's letter to the Thessalonians, one would see that even back then, back in 50AD, folks expected the Lord to return. The Thessalonians were so convinced that the Lord's return was to be almost immediate that some of them obviously thought they had missed it.
I want to draw your attention to something, a verse that those who lightly read the Bible and then write commentary are always taking out of context, but in light of today's thought is perfectly in context. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. (2 Peter 3:8 ACP/KJV)
Keep that in mind. In God's time, what is a long, long time, ten fold centuries, a thousand years, is, to the Eternal One, but like a day. This has nothing to do with the creation of the earth as the liberals would have your believe, it has to do with how insignificant time is to God.
Now back to How long Oh Lord, how long? Did God ever give us a hint as to how long it would be between the time He ascended into heaven and the time He would return for us?
Actually He did in Isaiah 42:14-16. But before I show you, let us make sure the context is correct. So let us first read verses 15&16 to make sure that verse 14 actually refers to the time between the Ascension and the Rapture.
I(God) will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools. In the time of tribulation, the earth has a 31/2 year drought. There is an earthquake that levels the mountains, there are fires that destroy all green things, trees, grass, herbs, food, etc.
And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them. During the seven years of Tribulation, there is a huge number that turn from satan to The Christ, Our Lord and Saviour. There is no other time of revival like it. (Isaiah 42:15&16 ACP/KJV)
So Isaiah 42:15 and 16 are describing the time we who study the word of God understand to be the seven years following the rapture of the Church, the time of Tribulation.
Now let us look at what God says in verse 14.
I have long time holden My peace; I have been still, and refrained Myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at once. (Isaiah 42:14 ACP/KJV)
In the Lord's time frame, it hasn't even been two days since:
The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, until the day in which He was taken up, after that He through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom He had chosen:
To whom also He shewed Himself alive after His passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God: And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith He, ye have heard of Me. For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.
When they therefore were come together, they asked of Him, saying, "Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?" And He said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto Me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
And when He had spoken these things, while they beheld, He was taken up; and a cloud received Him out of their sight.
And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, "Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven." (Acts 1:1-11 ACP/KJV)
So from the time that the Lord ascended up into heaven and now is not even two days in God's time. Certainly not long enough to warrant: "I have long time holden My peace; I have been still, and refrained Myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at once."
The more I read the prophets, the more I think we have a while to go yet before the Lord returns for us, which means we have more time to do as He instructed us to: "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."
But for those who procrastinate, bear in mind, I am but a feeble creation like you, I could very easily be wrong, the Lord could come back anytime, and then where will your unsaved friends, family and others be?
If you won't do anything else, will you at least go to: Christianpatriot.com/what.pdf and print. out a hundred or so to leave where others might pick them up?
Many of you have heard rumors and reports that Dr. Kent Hovind has been jailed. That part of what you have heard is true, but in all probability the circumstances you have heard are wrong. Please go to this week's issue of Christian-news-in-maine.com/january27-2007.htm and read the truth. Please read the entire article and then click on the pdf file link at the bottom. Then please help us get the truth out.
Lord, please protect Your baby brother and sister Kent and Jo Hovind. The IRS has run amuck Lord. They are in a position to persecute all of Your children here on earth, You have given them the sword while we have but tooth picks. But Lord, we have You. Thank You Jesus, and it is Your name we pray to the Father. Amen.
This was written a long time ago, but may refresh your memory:
It's time to bring out the big guns against abortionists and abortion clinics! Daily thought for; Monday October 17th, 1999
Get your .44 auto mag at Wal Mart for $4.95
That's right, better and more powerful than any gun in your or the government's arsenal. And it's available at your neighborhood Wal Mart for only $4.95. The Holy Word of God, the Bible. Let's look at just one round in the chamber of God's word.
Why do I say God's word is a weapon? Look at Psalm 64. This Psalm was written by David, David the warrior king, the David that slew Goliath when he was but 14 years old or so. David, the king with the largest most powerful, best trained and most victorious army that Israel had ever or has ever fielded. Yet this David, time and time again turned away from his army and to the Lord in prayer when he was overwhelmed and unable to win using his army.
We can learn a lot from David, for there are times when we need to let the Lord do the fighting.
1 Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity: (In the first two verses, David has called upon the Lord and asked hide him.)
3 Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words:
4 That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
5 They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, 'Who shall see them?'
6 They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep. (In verses 3-6, David explains to the Lord that his enemies are not warriors, but cowards who slink around behind his back and try to slay him with words, sowing discontent. Kind of like abortionists today. Cowards. Rotten little cowards that kill the most defenseless of all living things on earth, babies in the womb. These cowardly killers have not the courage to go after even two year old children but must satisfy their blood lust and desire to prove themselves by killing little tiny babies captured and trapped in the womb.)
7 But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.
8 So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all that see them shall flee away. (Here David is suggesting to God what he, David, would like to see done to the cowardly little gossips that plagued him, David, back then.)
9 And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of His doing.
10 The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in Him; and all the upright in heart shall glory. (Here David is telling God that if God will do something so miraculous to destroy his enemies, all will give praise and glory to God, for they will know that those works of destruction could not have come by man.)
My pro-life, Born Again Christian brothers and sisters, we must learn from David. Let us stop praying for the Lord to touch the heart of the abortionist and the woman whose womb the baby is trapped in. But pray instead to God to spare the baby's life. Let the Lord do whatever He wants to. Don't tie His hands by asking for salvation or softening of the heart of the abortionist and the female taking the baby to his or her death. Pray to God that He will do whatever He has to do to save the baby from being murdered. If that means the Lord has to destroy the abortionist, well, the abortionist made his choice. If that means destroying the female, so be it, for she too has made her choice. But the baby, the baby is the only innocent one in the crowd, it is the baby that needs and deserves God's help. No longer will I pray for God to go easy on abortionists or biological test tubes that are bringing their babies to abortionists to be slaughtered.
From here on out, my prayer will be Lord God, save that baby. Lord that baby did nothing to be worthy of death. Lord God, please do what ever you have to do to save the baby. Lord God do to those who wish to destroy that baby what you need to do to stop them from killing that baby, for you Lord God have tied our hands, you have told us to turn to You, I pray to Thee Lord God that Thou would do it in such a manner that all men tremble at the knowledge that it was You who stopped the murder, so that all men give glory, praise and fear to You Lord God and the baby lives. For only You Lord God above have the power to stop these murderous, child killing cowards from continuing their acts of vengeance against You, Your Son, the Holy Spirit and the little creation within the womb.
Stop them Lord God, stop them before they murder anymore. Let not these cowards continue to destroy that which You have made in Your own image, let not these cowards take one more breath of Your clean air. Destroy them oh Lord God before they destroy any more of Your most innocent of all creations. Amen
End of the Monday October 17th, 1999 thought.
Brothers and sisters, we need to expand our reliance upon God and call unto Him for things beyond that of just protecting and avenging the baby in the womb. We must call upon Him to protect and avenge all Christians by the servers of satan. Christian-news-in-maine.com will once gain be highlighting the persecution of Christians in Maine, in the US and around the world.
Sha'al shalowm Yruwshalaim.

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 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.
