Today I would like to get back to a few basics, just a few things found in the Bible that for one reason or another most either don't seem to find or choose to ignore.
But first I want to clear the air. I, Steve and Jim do not do these thoughts with the heathen in mind, while we thank God each time a heathen reads anything on ChristianPatriot.com, we do not write with the heathen in mind, but instead to reinforce and teach the Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian. The thoughts have always been written with you, the Christian man in mind. The thoughts are written to help you get yourself and your family through the day and the age. Yes we do get excited when a heathen reads the thought, for is it not written that God's word will not return to Him void?
We love hearing from those of you who are Saved, and likewise, while I am often sickened by their remarks, I also like hearing from the occasional heathen who writes as well, all though, I have recently set up the form mail to ignore and delete any and all forms that come with excessive profanity and even one instance of taking the name of the Lord in vain. Very soon, I will in all probability, set the form mail up so as to require a valid e-mail address and phone number with area code, on all form mails sent to us.
Why am I going to change the form mail form? Because while I love hearing form those of you who are Saved, I am pretty much sick and tired of the heathen who write with vile and sick remarks, the ones who read one thought and think they have the right to correct and insult those who write for ACP. Unsaved satan worshiping heathens who say things with no biblical justification or research. Such as this statement sent autonomously from a girl who had an abortion at 16. "Ouch, your whole thought on abortion is (deleted profanity)...for example..(here's (o)ne for ya)when I was 16 I became pregnant..which from there resulted in abortion!!! OUCH I guess I am going to hell now!"
ChristianPatriot.com has covered abortion no less than 100 times over the last eight years. There is no way I am going to continue to waste valuable band width on trying to get girls to understand that while they, if they do not seriously turn to Jesus and get Saved are indeed going to hell, it is not because they sacrificed their baby to satan as a blood sacrifice it is because they did Matthew 10:33.
Neither I or any other writer of any of the Daily thoughts have ever said that having an abortion is the unpardonable sin, I have said and will continue to say that those who do abortions are the modern equivalent of the high priest of satan aka baal, molech, etc. and that they, in doing abortions, may very well be committing the unforgivable sin that Jesus talks about.
I am going to say this one more time and that, God willing, is going to be it. If you took your little baby, the one trapped in your womb, the one trapped in what should be the safest place on earth, the one who has no one but you to protect and nourish him or her, to an abortionist and you had that little baby slaughtered as a blood sacrifice to satan, you can be forgiven. But, not by insulting me or trying to justify your part in that baby's murder. Not by twisting the words of the Holy bible, but by doing exactly what the Bible teaches you to get Saved. Otherwise, if you don't, then go to the lake of fire, I have done my job, I have told you, now it is up to you. And if you continue to do that which Jesus warned about in Matthew 10:33, if you continue to serve satan and turn your face from Christ, then to be very honest with you, you have made your choice and you deserve eternity in the lake of fire with your tin god, satan.
Now enough of that, let us get to the Good News of Scripture.
Today I want to show you a few things that many seem to not notice. Let us start with how clever and successfully deceitful satan is.
To many of us underestimate satan. Three such were Adam and Eve and Judas Iscariot.
1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, 'Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.'" 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. 9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? 10 And he (Adam) said, "I heard Thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself." 11 And He said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
12 And the man said, "The woman whom Thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat." 13 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, "The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat." (Genesis 3:1-13 ACP/KJV)
I would like you to go back and read verse eight. We have no reason to believe that this isn't something that God did each day. Each day, towards the time of sunset, Jesus would come walk and have a chat with Adam, and more than likely Eve. Think of how close Adam and Eve were to Jesus, yet, satan was able to deceive them both.
1 Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover. 2 And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill Jesus; for they feared the people. 3 Then entered satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve. 4 And Judas Iscariot went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray Jesus unto them. 5 And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money. 6 And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray Jesus unto them in the absence of the multitude. (Luke 22:1-6 ACP/KJV)
Judas Iscariot was with Jesus day and night for at least three ears, think about that, Judas heard ever sermon that Jesus preached, he had the opportuinity each day to talk to Jesus one on one in person. He saw the miracles, he was present when Jesus raised the dead. Judas was there when Jesus walked on water, healed lepers and gave sight to the blind. Yet, satan deceived Judas Iscariot.
Now there is one more set of verses I want you to see. For I have heard all to many times this unmitigated horse dung about "once you claim to be saved you are saved, that all you have to do is pray a thirteen second prayer to Christ and He will let you into His family guaranteeing you eternal security." Let us look at another of the twelve, Peter.
First Peter was part of the inner circle of Jesus' disciples, it was Peter, James and John that went everywhere with Jesus, yet, watch what happens.
31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: 32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.
33 And Peter said unto Him, "Lord, I am ready to go with Thee, both into prison, and to death." 34 And Jesus said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest Me. (Luke 22: 31-34 ACP/KJV)
Before we go on I want you to look at verse 32, do you see where Jesus has said to Peter: "... and when thou art converted ..." And when thou art converted. Now before you buy into the garbage about "Oh to be a Christian all you have to do is tell Jesus you want to be part of His family" you had best get a few things straight, first satan is sharp, and second, if you think it is that easy to become a Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian, and they are the only ones going to heaven, than you had best focus on this exchange between Jesus and Peter.
66 And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there cometh one of the maids of the high priest: 67 And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and said, "And thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth." 68 But he denied, saying, "I know not, neither understand I what thou sayest." And he went out into the porch; and the cock crew. (Peter denied Jesus the first time and the roaster crowed the first time)
69 And a maid saw him again, and began to say to them that stood by, "This is one of them." 70 And he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood by said again to Peter, "Surely thou art one of them: for thou art a Galilaean, and thy speech agreeth thereto." 71 But he began to curse and to swear, saying, "I know not this Man of whom ye speak." 72 And the second time the cock crew. (The third time Peter denied Jesus, the roaster crowed a second time)
And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept. (Luke 22: 66-72 ACP/KJV)
So, Peter denied Jesus, Peter who was part of the inner circle of Apostles, Peter whom the cult of Roman Catholicism claims Jesus made the first pope, this Peter denied Jesus, this same Jesus that back a bit said to Peter: "... and when thou art converted ..."
Now look what the angle of God says when the Mary's first come to Jesus's empty grave on that first Easter.
1 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint Him. 2 And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun. 3 And they said among themselves, "Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?"
4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great. 5 And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted. 6 And he saith unto them, "Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: He is risen; He is not here: behold the place where they laid Him."
7 "But go your way, tell His disciples and Peter that He goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see Him, as He said unto you." (Mark 16:1-7 ACP/KJV)
Notice verse 6, "... tell His disciples and Peter ...". Yes, Peter was given a second chance, and yes Peter did come back to the Lord, but, what you need to do is focus on how hard it is to be a true Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian. It is not something that happens by chance nor is it to be taken lightly. I'm going to close with a few verses from Matthew chapter ten. Verses that if you truly want to see the kingdom of God and spend all eternity in it, you had best take to heart, for any preacher or writer who contradicts these words is not of God, but of satan.
32 Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father which is in heaven. 33 But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father which is in heaven.
34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. 37 He that loveth father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. 38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after Me, is not worthy of Me.
39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for My sake shall find it. (Matthew 10:32-39 ACP/KJV)
Yes, the times put a tear in our eye, just as they do the eyes of Jesus, but, the time is not over, stop concentrating on what those who try to justify sin say, stop trying to find loopholes in God's Holy Word, the Bible. Trash the liberal interpretations and focus on the words written in the Geneva and KJV. Err on the side of caution, err on the side of Christ. Remember Adam, remember Eve, remember Judas Iscariot and Peter. And remember this: God does not rely upon what you say, for He knows your heart.
The Lord be with you all and pray guys, pray hard, pray for yur kids, your wife and your kin, pray for me, Steve and Jim, pray for our families and pray for our country, pray God will forgive us and our nation, pray He will give us a David. Pray He will raise up a Paul for the cults like islam, roman catholicism, episcopalianism, the methodist and other Christ denying mains stream protestant churches, pray, pray and pray. Focus your time and life on Christ, get your heads out of the political correct peter jennings horse dung of the world and get your head and mind into God's word and focus on The Word.
Pray God will do to the abortionist of this world and their political guardians what they do to the babies, pray for revival and salvation, don't put God in a box, just turn yourself, your family and everything over to Him, for all is His and He will decide who spends eternity with Him in paradise and satan in the lake of fire, He and only HE. And He will base that decision on your life here on earth as long or short as it may be, and if you think that unfair, tough. Get used to it, for He created you and all things, and He created all things and you for His pleasure, not yours.
Lord Jesus, hear our prayers that we pray in Your Name, Amen.
Never ever forget this: There aint no purgatory!
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.
