Today's Christian thought: Monday February 16th, 2004
Today I am going to ask you three questions, I am going to answer two of them, but leave the third for you to use as a long term Bible study.
Question number one: Many are lining up to see the new Mel Gibson film "Passion", why?
My guess is that you want to see the movie so as to get a better understanding of what the Lord went through for your salvation. Over the years, I like most of you have seen movies after I have read the book. After reading the book and seeing the movies, like most of you, I have left the movies saying, "The book was better." So, if you want to understand what the Lord went through for you, why not go back and study it for yourself in the Bible? And then do some research on your own to get a deeper understanding of the meanings of words like scourged, whipped, and tortured, why not go out in the summer, gather a rose bush and put together a crown of thorns yourself, and then gingerly lay them on your own head, knowing full well that those who placed them on the Lord's head, did so not gingerly, but by shoving that crown down with all the force that person could muster. Do you think that movie actually portrays what Jesus went through for you? If so how is it that they who portrayed the Lord and the two thieves are still alive? Do you know you can buy a KJV red letter edition Bible at Wal-Mart for less than the cost of a ticket to the movie?
So, the anser to question one is read and study the Word of God, His very own description of what happened to Him, just as He dictated it to the prophets who foresaw it and the writers of the Gospels who lived at the time it happened.
Question two: Where will the muslim hordes strike next in the USA?
After what has come to be known as 9-11, we know that we are vulnerable and that we have the capacity to strike back. We know that we will strike back and that the muslims will attack again. We can assume that the muslim leadership, while recruiting others to die, really prefer to stick around and console the widows. It is also easy to realize that those at the head of the muslims know that regardless of what they do next in the USA, they will pay a price for that action. They, the muslim leaders know that to attack the general population again as they did on 9-11 is not only stupid, it is inviting a nuclear response this time. Bin laden and his minions have to know that we are close on their trail, that we have them pinpointed within a ten of twenty mile radius, and that in those caves it wold not take many nuclear devices to turn them into ashes, sending them right into the arms of their god satan.
So, where will they attack next? Ok, let us look at that question and use logic. The muslims currently have somewhere in the neighborhood of 400 sleeper homicidal maniacs in this county. Now Bin Laden and his gang have no problem ordering them to go kill themselves, but Bin Laden does not want another full scale attack as he suffered after 9-11. So how and who does he kill here in the USA without getting Petey Jennings and the liberal establishment upset. How and who can he kill, accomplishing the results wanted by his god satan, yet not resulting in the full retaliatory powers of the USA.
Imagine the outrage if they bombed an abortion clinic. Imagine the absolute outage if they bombed a public school, imagine the outrage if they bombed a mall killing hundreds of young adults. But, what if they bombed a fundamental Christian gathering of adults? Think about it for a moment, what if a homicidal muslim fanatic seeking his way to eternal damnation, walked into a gathering of a couple of hundred older Born Again Christians and detonated a bomb, killing himself and killing or maiming 200 Born Again Believers. Would Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, Ted Kennedy, the main stream media, the log cabin republicans, and the other secularist in the body politic be screaming for retaliation? Sure they would, but it would be a very measured retaliation. Some would even hint that we brought it on ourselves by our refusal to accept that islam is the religion of peace.
So, where is the next attack going to take place? Who will satan target next through his minions in the muslim world? The solid Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian churches. Not small ones like Faith Community in Lovell, Maine, or the little Baptist church in Stow, Maine. But, how about that Cango Rd Baptist church in Portland? How about the Baptist church in Danville, Kentucky? In one of the bigger churches, the death toll could easily climb into the hundreds, even thousands, yet, the leftist, while publicly crying and condemning, would be privately applauding the end of a those who oppose sin, pornography, abortion and other sins of the flesh that they so enjoy.
How does a pastor protect his flock in the light of such knowledge and logic? Simple, arm your elders, train your elders, encourage those who are former military to come to church and church functions armed. Teach them that with a proper shoot, they can take the homicidal maniacs mind off of what he is about to do by causing him great pain. Shoot for the knee, this will cause the bomber to go down and even if the bomb goes off, since it is closer to the ground it will do less far ranging damage. Shoot for the shoulders or elbows, causing his or her arm to be useless for pulling th lanyard of pushing the detonator button. And most of all make sure your flock is Saved, preach salvation, make visits, spend all of your waking hours making sure that no one in your church is damned.
Question three: Last question, and this one I'll leave you to study and find the answer on your own. If President George Walker Bush, who professes to be a Born Again Christian, were to order the assassination of every member of the Congress, the Federal Judiciary, his staff, and employees of the federal police agencies that were unsaved, and called you before he gave the order to start, asking your opinion, based upon the Word of God, asking you: "Would I be right or wrong in the eyes of God?" What would you tell him?
Lord I thank You for giving us answers to all our questions in Your Book the Holy Bible, for, All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. Amen.
Pray for my friend Mac, pray for Rush and Michael Savage. While the Lord does not need the platforms and audiences that Rush and Michael have, they, Rush, Michael and their audiences need the Lord.
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.
