In that movie, we will learn three very important Biblical truths.
1. Actions have consequences!
2. What satan means for evil, God can and often does use for good.
3. Your personal relationship with God, what it should look like.
The driving force behind communism in the world is one Karl Marx, a Jew born in Germany in 1818 to be the son of a liberal Jewish lawyer. Marx in 1842 became a member of the main stream media, working for such socialist stalwarts as the New York Tribune. His teachings were adopted, in Russia, by the educated Jews of the country, the university professors and of course the young Jewish students who attended those universities. They in turn brought these ideas to the Jewish peasants and middle class Jews.
The Czar than sicced his army on the Jewish dissidents and gave all Jews, in most of Russia, days to pack up and leave.
So, the first point is simply that actions, yours or those you are associated with, will result in consequences. Many have gone to prison for horrific crimes, they have come to be Born Again even before their trials. And while the judge may take into consideration their new life, he is still going to sentence them to pay for those crimes. And that is the way it should be. Look:
Actions have consequences is a Biblical truth. While the children of Israel wondered around in the desert, God told them to get ready to go into their land. They choose twelve men to go into the land and check it out. These twelve came back and ten of the twelve cried, "oh woos of woos, the inhabitants are bigger and meaner than us, we'll get slaughtered." So the children of Israel refused to go into the land the Lord had given them, because they did not trust God. And God said:
And the LORD said, I have pardoned according to thy word: But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD. Because all those men which have seen My glory, and My miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted Me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to My voice; Surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked Me see it:
But My servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed Me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it.
(Now the Amalekites and the Canaanites dwelt in the valley.) Tomorrow turn you, and get you into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea. And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against Me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against Me. Say unto them, 'As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you: Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against Me. Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.' (Numbers 20:30 ACP/KJV)
When ever we do something wrong, even though we get away with it in the site of man, it is God's site that counts, it is His judgement that counts. And whatever it is you do, always remember these two things: One, nothing gets past God. And two: all of your actions will have consequences.
Satan meant this action by the Czar to wipe out the Jews of Russia. God changed it so that hundreds of thousands of Jews were able to get out of Russia before communism closed the door. Before the icon and hero of the US liberal press, Josef Stalin, came into power. Most of the Jews relocated to other parts of Europe, many came to the USA and not a few went to the Holy Land (You might also want to read the first quarter of Exodus). Thus proving that regardless of what satan does, who he uses, what powers he has in his hands, God is in control and just as He turned satan's evil in the Genesis account of Joseph, to good, so did He in pre-communist Russia. And so can He today to save a people, a church or even a remnant.
And when Joseph's brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, "Joseph will peradventure hate us, and will certainly requite us all the evil which we did unto him."
And they sent a messenger unto Joseph, saying, "Thy father did command before he died, saying, 'So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father.'"
And Joseph wept when they spake unto him. 8 And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, "Behold, we be thy servants." And Joseph said unto them, "Fear not: for am I in the place of God? But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive. Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them. (Genesis 50:15-21 ACP/KJV)
So, the second point I want to make is:
That what satan means for evil, God can make for good. Just as satan wanted to use the foolishness of a German Jew by the name of Marx and his Jewish followers for evil, God used it to rescue hundreds of thousands of Jews from communism.
And it is just as obvious by those who are abortionist and by those who support them, that satan means abortion for evil. Even to the point of making the vast majority of the so called Pro-Life community refuse to embrace and get behind HR-552.. For satan wants HR-552 to die on the vine, he wants it to never see the light of day. But, God can and I am sure will make, and I have no idea how He will do this, but, I am sure God will make abortion out to be something of good. Something that works to help further His kingdom. Just as he turned it around for Joseph and the jews in pre-communist, czarist Russia, he will do the same with the horror of abortion. If we pray.
The third and final point I want to make is one in which you really need to see the movie to understand. You see, Tevye, the poor milkman who is the main character in the movie, never ceases to talk to God. As he is walking and his horse goes lame, he talks to God. As his daughters meet men, he talks to God. As he is gong about his chore in his barn, he talks to God. But, he doesn't just talk to God, he, although he is not a Christian, displays a Born Again Christian relationship with God, more like you should have. An Abba Father relationship with God.
Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed by the father.
Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. (Galatians 4: 1-7 ACP/KJV)
So, the third and final point is, more of a question than a point, what about your relationship with God? How is it? Are you on good terms with Jesus? Have you spoken to Him at all today? Do you bring everything to Him, good and bad? Do you hold conversations with Him? For unlike Tevye, if you are a true Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian, He will answer you.
Oh Lord, bring us closer to You, help us see how You are working in our lives. Remind us Lord to talk things over with You. Remind us Lord that we are no more just bond servants, but instead we are Your little brothers and sisters. Little adopted sons and daughters of The father. Help us to remember that we can call upon You. Jesus I give You thanks for all those who love their children enough to homeschool and draw the line on them when need to have the line drawn on them. I give You thanks for those who are seeking an answer from You. I pray You'll open Eddy's fathers heart and strengthen Eddy and his mother. I pray your protection for Colby. I give You thanks for Steve, Jim, Danny, Larry, Fred and Linda.
Thank You Jesus, thank You so very much, give me strength and please refresh Mac. Amen.
The Lord bless you all and may He heal Mel's eyes and Myra's ears. May He be with Colby as he has now arrived at Paris Island and strted boot camp, A Christian babe amongst many a wolf. Amen.

May the Lord understand the importance of Mac, Cecily, Steve, and Rev. Jim Marstaller to this ministry. Lord I need them both healthy and able to continue to hold up their ends. Lord this cancer of Mac's is starting to get in the way, this ministry needs him whole, just a thought Lord, is all it will take, just a thought on Your part.
There is a young man, a veteran who suffers from some kind of chemical weapon exposure, in a Veterans hospital in Colorado, he is young, and he is Saved, yet his wife just abandoned him. Please pray for him, Lord, help him and deal with her and those who hurt him, we ask this of the Father in Your name Lord Jesus, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with and bless you all, 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.
