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.

Matthew 5:43-48
Monday, April 16,2007

Have you ever really thought, maybe pondered would be a better word, about what the Lord through the pen of His most prolific New Testament writer, Paul, was telling us in First Timothy 2:1-6? He wasn't just telling us to pray for the President and other politicians, leaders, and men in power, no he was telling us to pray for their salvation. But, not just their salvation, but the salvation of all. For; "in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth."

To read and study 1 Timothy 2:1-6, without going back to the Sermon on the Mount and looking hard and long at what Jesus said in Matthew 5:43-48, would cause a shallow study indeed.

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; 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 sendeth rain on the saved and on the unsaved.

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)

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men, for kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; He, who would have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus; He who gave Himself as a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. (1 Timothy 2:1-6)

Many mornings as I pray, I pray for specific children, and in each instance God reminds me that I should be praying for the salvation of not only the children, but for their parents as well. He reminds me by saying "Bob, I didn't give that child to you, I gave him or her to ......" This of course means that I should pray not only for that little one, but all who have authority and/or influence over that little one. And that means parents, older brothers and sisters, teachers, preachers, police, courts, governors, the president and a whole bunch more. One of the most important to pray for would be the boyfriend or girlfriend of a divorced or widowed parent. Can you think of anything worse for a young child than have his or her divorced or widowed parent, a weak or maybe unsaved parent at that, going out with a Christ denying hater such as a muslim or a follower of one of the many cults?

That parent and his or her unsaved Christ hating friend are going to have great authority and influence over that child. There is only one way to deal with it. Pray for them. Thinking of a child's salvation is one of the greatest ways God has of getting us to pray for "for all men, for kings, and for all that are in authority".

I have written much about three men, Steve Burzlaff, Rev.Jim Marstaller and Rev.Don DeMars. All three are true Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians, all three have raised their children to love and fear the Lord our God, Christ Jesus. All three have been fathers who have openly taught their children the word of God. And all three are perfect examples of what a Christian father should be, which is why I use them as examples so often. But what about the rest of us?

Our only recourse is to do just what Jesus has taught us to do, pray for all men, for kings, and for all that are in authority.

Make a list of all who have authority over you, your wife, and your children, and then pray for their salvation, nothing else, just their salvation. Don't put the Lord in a box, don't try to tell Him how to do it, just pray for their salvation and that if they are never to be Saved, (for Jesus knows who will come to Him and who won't), then pray that God will remove that person from having any authority or influence over your children or grandchildren or any child or person you are praying for. For more on Jesus knows who will come to Him and who won't, go to: Confused about predestinated, foreknown, justified and glorified?.

When making that list, pay particular attention to those you know to now be servants and handmaidens of satan. Remember, do not put Jesus in a box, and remind Him to help you not to interfere. That not interfering part is tough, but trust the Lord and let Him work and answer your prayer. Try to keep in mind, He created you to be His servant or handmaiden. He did not create you to dictate to Him.

Lord Jesus we thank You for the great love You have for all of us. We thank You Lord for the suffering You did on the cross to give all an equal opportunity to be Saved. And Lord we bring to Your attention all who have authority over our children and grandchildren, praying that You will do whatever You have to do to either bring them to you or get them and their influence and authority out of their lives. We more over ask Lord that You will help us stand by and be a help rather than a hindrance to Your work. Thank You Jesus for it is in Your name we pray to the Father, knowing that there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, You, the Man Christ Jesus; You who gave Yourself as a ransom for all.

Lord, You have not given Kellie to me, You have given her to Dan, Lord, please hear my prayer above for Kellie. Thank You Jesus.

Are you tired of the Christ denying news in maine? www.christian-news-in-maine.com You can make this the best online paper in Maine, but it only happens with your help and effort.

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.
