Thanks to ACP's Steve Burzlaff, we now have the Evanglical handout, "What If" in PDF format.
For the "What If" evangelical handout in PDF format, click here.
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.

Day 21 of 40,

The family

Matthew 5:43-48 & Matthew 18:15-17
Monday, March 26,2007

I am old! As of yesterday I am 63 years old. Now to some of you, I am but a spring chicken, but to others of you and I dare say the majority of you, I am old. To those of you who say I am but a spring chicken, I will say, "Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?" And to you who say "63, wow that's old," I will say "Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially they who labor in the word and doctrine."

Now for those of you who are saying, "Oh no, I forgot pastor's birthday," There is a 253,000 acre ranch for sale just outside of Tucumcari, New Mexico that I would like to have. A mere 115 million dollars is all they are asking. I would think it could be bought for less.

OK, enough fooling around, let's get down to brass tacks about the family.

Ye have heard that it hath been said, 'Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.' But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; so that ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and He sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. (Matthew 5:43-48)

Are neighbors only those who are outside of your blood family? Are those who hate you only those outside of your blood family? No, Jesus has very clearly told us that there are those within our own families that will hate us, despise us, and even turn us over for death and torture. Now, what I am going to go into next, while we are going to focus on dissent within (y)our families, can easily and should be used whenever we have a problem with another Christian as well.

Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican. (Matthew 18:15-17)

We are going to change the above just a bit for clarity of the subject matter.

Moreover if any in your family, son or daughter shall trespass against thee, go and tell him or her their fault between just you and him or her alone. And if he or she shall hear thee, thou hast gained back your child. But if that son or daughter will not hear thee, then take with thee your wife and maybe eldest son, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. And if that son or daughter shall neglect to hear them, then bring it before your entire family: but if he or she still refuses to be corrected, then let that child be as an heathen man or woman.

OK, here we go. Let us say you have a son or daughter who has gotten into drugs, and perhaps things even worse. This child is ruining your other children. He or she is disrupting your family and causing dissent between you and your other children. First you go to that child and between you and he or she, in a loving but very firm manner, using Scripture to make your point, show them the errors of their ways and explain to him or her the damage being done to the rest of the family by his or her behaviour. Start with God's commandment that children are to honor their father and mother.

If that doesn't work, then you and your wife and possibly your eldest son address it with him or her. If still no results, then it is family meeting time. If the child is under 18, you may have to put him or her in some kind of boot camp type setting, if 18 or over you may have to tell that child to leave. Not for ever, only till they change. How does that change take place? Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. You and your family pray daily, twice a day or even more for God's intervention. But, remember, don't put the Lord in a box. You pray, let the Lord decide how best to handle your errant child, this son or daughter who has become your enemy, this offspring who is despitefully using you. For additional reading; Please don't hurt him.

Guys, pray for you and your family to love one another, your neighbors and all of the Christian church. Pray for any in your family who seem to be enemies, any in your neighborhood that have despitefully used you or are currently doing so. But mostly pray for your family, pray your children will never become your enemy or use you in a despiteful manner.

Oh Lord God of the Universe, You who came and shed Your precious sinless blood for us, please intervene within our families, for at times Lord it is hard for us to raise the precious gifts of life You have entrusted into our care. We need turn them back over to You Lord, for You and only You can lead them to the Light which is You. Thank You Jesus, for it is in Your name we petition the Father. 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 Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Michael Savage. While the Lord does not need the platforms and audiences that Rush, Sean and Michael have, they, Rush, Sean and Michael and their audiences need the Lord.

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.
