Midnight, Eastern Standard Time.
Weekend of March 15th and 16th, 2003
Well, as I sit here at my computer, it is now 9AM EST, and in 15 hours my current ISP should turn off my internet connection. Unless they are tardy, which would be nice but unexpected, I can not possibly be back on line till mid day Monday. The new software for the new ISP is coming by mail, I won't get my mail till sometime in the early afternoon on Monday, so, this weekend's thought will be it for a while, maybe till next Friday.
Now, I do expect the President to succumb to the influence and urging of the Republican party faithful to give the order to attack, before next Friday. I also expect muslims in this country to join with the leftist and attack within our borders, I fully expect to see leftist of the Carter/Clinton ilk to join with others in Congress and the media who hate this country and attempt to cause disruptions in the infrastructure of the country. Add to this the fact that there are, right here in the good ole USA, any number of muslims ready to join the cause that has its end in the destruction of the country and the slaughter of Born Again Christians.
With all that doom and gloom in mind, I want to leave you with some of the words dictated to Paul by God for God's own book, the Holy Bible.
I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom.
(Your name,) Preach the word;
be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
For the time will has come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. (2 Timothy 4:1-4)
Gentlemen, your primary function here on earth, is to be father, preacher, defender and head of your family to your wife and children. For every Bible believing Bible preaching Christ fearing preacher out there, there are a hundred heathen Christ denying, Bible denying preachers who claim to be two things, one Christians and second to know what God really meant to say in His book and to have the ability to tell what should and should not be in His book. You are the line of defense between these preachers with itchy ears and your family's salvation.
Let us go back to God's word as dictated to Paul for our edification, knowledge and instruction.
Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some of you, have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.
Some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come? Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die: And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:
But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased Him, and to every seed his own body. All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.
So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. And so it is written, THE FIRST MAN ADAM WAS MADE A LIVING SOUL; the last Adam was made a Quickening Spirit.
Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
Now this I say brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, DEATH IS SWALLOWED UP IN VICTORY. O DEATH, WHERE IS THY STING? O GRAVE, WHERE IS THY VICTORY?
The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:32-58)
Don't be one of those that God is referring to when He dictated to Paul saying: "for some of you, have not the knowledge of God:" Over the next days, till I am back on line, why don't you sit your family down once a day and give them a daily Christ based, Scriptural thought?
And may our Lord, the God of the universe, Christ Jesus, be with and bless you all, may He help you be chief preacher to your family, may He give them ears to hear and a heart to absorb His word as preached by you. May He help you to find the time and give you the hunger and the strength to preach Christ to your family. Amen.
Lord God Creator of all things, we, the people of the USA, give Thee thanks for giving us the second chance we do not deserve. We thank Thee Lord for our brave troops who are at this very instant freeing and liberating people through out the kingdom of satan. Amen. And Lord we beseech Thee that Thou would send to our men a Paul, to preach Your word to them before they go to free those held captive by the forces of evil left by Saul. Touch the Presidents heart Lord, lead him in a direction to send evangelist to our troops, give him the strength Lord to serve You, to use his office, that You have entrusted him with, as Commander in Chief to authorize and send solid evangelical Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian evangelist preachers to bring the Word of God to our troops, giving them both reason to fight and the Lord's plan of salvation.
Lord Jesus, it is in Thy Sacred and Holy Name I pray, Amen.
All Scripture is 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.
God blessed America when she feared Him, now it appears, she may face His wrath.
