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.
In Galatians six, verse seven we read: Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. The word mocked, means outwitted, outsmarted and/or outfoxed. We are not going to outfox or out smart God, and we most certainly are not going to outwit Him. So we might as well face up to the fact that what we sow, we will reap. Sow good seeds, reap a good harvest. Sow lousy seeds and you'll have a very poor harvest. A very poor harvest indeed.
Now, let us look at Deuteronomy 5:16.
Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. (Deuteronomy 5:16 ACP/KJV)
Do you know that back in the times of and before Christ, a obstinate, disrespectful son or daughter was to be put to death? Did you know that? Many of you seem to think that it is wrong to even spank your kids, that your kids never do anything worth spanking, they are never so misbehaved that they should receive a spanking.
The only child I have ever known, heard of, or read about that did not require corporal punishment was the Lord Jesus, and even He, one time came close to it.
Now Jesus' parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover. And when Jesus was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast. And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the Child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and His mother knew not of it.
But they, supposing Jesus to have been in the company, went a day's journey; and they sought Him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance. And when they found Him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking Him.
And it came to pass, that after three days they found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions. And all that heard Him were astonished at His understanding and answers.
And when Mary and Joseph Jesus, they were amazed: and His mother said unto Him, "Son, why hast Thou thus dealt with us? behold, Thy father and I have sought Thee sorrowing."
And Jesus said unto them, How is it that ye sought Me? knew ye not that I must be about My Father's business?
And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them. And He went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: (Luke 2:41-51a ACP/KJV)
Notice, the very end, where it says: "And He went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them". Subject unto them means He, the Son of God, God in the form of a man, was under their direct control, authority and orders. And while there is no reason to think they punished Jesus, it is obvious that He may have been on the verge of getting a spanking.
Ask yourself, why was Joseph silent? What tone of voice do you think Mary used? Keep in mind, the child was God, Mary was the hand picked virgin by God to be His earthy mother. Joseph was God's handpicked step dad for Himself.
And you think your kid is too good to be spanked? That all you need do is give him or her a time out? Take away their game boy for an hour or two? When you obey, not God, but Ophra, Dr. Phil, Dr. Spock, Dr. Laura and the legislature of California in the rasing of your children, you are doing two things. For remember: Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. (Deuteronomy 5:16 ACP/KJV)
You are condemning yourself to a very unpleasant old age, for you will reap what you sow. And you are denying your children the promise of a long and pleasant life.
He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes. Showing love to your children is raising them as God has told you too, it is raising them to fear and love God first and you second.
Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying. Sure their crying will break your heart and bring tears to your eyes. But is that not better than her crying after she has an abortion at 124, or his crying as you bail him out of jail at 13?
Sean Hannity has publicly bragged about how his children never need to be spanked, all he has to do is take away their game boy, play station or other toy for a day or two. It will be very interesting to live long enough to see if his children turn out to be David's or Ahabs. I would suggest that one day, if he ever wakes up, Sean will wish he had broken out the strap.
Do you want your daughters growing up to be like Madonna, Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Chelsea Clinton or either of the Bush daughters? No, then you had best get the hair brush out.
Like many of you, I am now old enough to look back at my sowing and today at my reaping, and see the truth of Galatians 6:7. For God is not unjust, He is not mocked, He is not deceived, and I am reaping what I have sown, some for good and some for bad.
No, we are not going to outfox or out smart God, and we most certainly are not going to outwit Him. So we might as well face up to the fact that what we sow, we will reap. Sow good seeds, reap a good harvest. Sow lousy seeds and you'll have a very poor harvest. A very poor harvest indeed.
How unfortunate, in some instances, that we sow when we are young and foolish and reap in old age when we have time to take a week, go fishing and ponder our sowing. Speaking of which, pray for nice warm weather for the week of February 26 through March 3, for it is that week that I am going to take a week, go fishing and ponder my reaping.
The Lord be with you and let Him be your guide as you sow, for it is by His rules will you reap. Amen.
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 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.
