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

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 40 of 40,

The family

1 Corinthians 7:12-17
Friday, April 20,2007

The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering towards us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. (2 Peter 3:9&10)

The Lord keeps His promises. Look at the promises He made via His prophets telling how He would return to earth as a babe in the womb of a virgin, how He would grow up as a sinless young man, how He would then offer Himself upon the cross as a full atonement for the sins of any who would call upon His name and become Born Again.

No, the Lord does not break His promises, not even when we break ours to Him. For He is very patient with us, and He has absolutely no desire to see any turn from him to serve satan, nor does He have any desire to see any continue to serve satan instead of voluntarily coming to Him. And He has promised that one day this will all end. The last one to be Saved will be saved and He will totally, with fire, destroy this earth and everything on it. He further promises that He will do this when we least expect it. He will come as a thief comes in the night, at a time when those who are alive will least suspect it.

As we close out this forty day series called The Family, let us ponder a few things. First, as I go back I notice that for the most part I have been addressing families where both dad and mom and perhaps all the kids are Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians. Today I am going to address, for the most part, families where only one of the parents is saved, and young men and young women looking at marrying an unsaved person.

But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away. And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.

But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace. For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife? But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches. (1 Corinthians 7:12-17)

The most fortunate on Earth are those who belong to families where both of the parents are Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians, who not only belong to a solid Christ preaching God fearing church, but are active, participating, tithe paying members. But alas in this day and age, they make up only a very small minority of society.

The next most fortunate are families where only one of the parents is Saved. And that is the subject of today's prayer, praise and thought.

When both of the parents are Saved, the chances are very good that the children will live in an environment that is based upon the word of God. They will have a strong Christ centered home life, they will belong to a church that preaches Christ first, last and always, and they will either be home schooled or be attending a solid Christ centered Christian School. They will see their parents praying together and will grow up relying upon the Lord.

In those families where only one of the parents is Saved, the children are less likely to belong to a solid church, they are less likely to be allowed to attend a Christian School that focuses on Christ instead of money, but they are still blessed, for they have one parent that can pray to the Father in the name of the Son for them.

As long as the unsaved partner in a marriage is willing to stay married to the Saved partner in that marriage, all is well, for the Saved partner can and should pray for the salvation of his or her unsaved partner and kids. Guys we have covered this before, but we are going to cover it again. If you are a Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian and you have unsaved family members, especially close ones like your wife and or kids, you need to commit to praying for them every day, at least once a day. For if you don't, who will? Each night, as your wife lays beside you asleep, put your hand on her head and go to the Lord Jesus in prayer for her salvation and protection, ask the Lord to surround her with angels with flaming swords protecting her from the evil one, his minions and his ilk and those who serve the evil one knowingly or unknowingly. Do the same for each of your kids, by going to each of their bedroom doors if they live at home and praying for them if they are away just pray nightly for them asking the Lord to do the same thing for them. For what good is all the silver and gold in the world if they are going to spend all eternity in the lake of fire?

Let us pray and give praise to the God who so loves mankind that He tells us to pray for our enemies, pray for those who use us deceitfully or despitefully.

Lord God, we thank You and give You praise for the patience You show us, How You sit by and watch giving us time to find and turn to You. O'Lord God of Creation, You who created the universe, thank You and we praise and trust in Your name. Lord, please do what ever You have to do to reach our unsaved family. Lord please do not hold back anything from reaching out to our unsaved family. Lord give us strength to rely upon You and not interfere. And Father we beseech You on behalf of those who are unequally yoked that You would hear the prayers for salvation of the unsaved spouse by the Saved. And Lord please be with those children of those mixed marriages.

And Lord, as I close out this series, would You please impress upon the hearts of Saved men and women, boys and girls the importance of not being unequally yoked. Remind them Lord, speak directly to their hearts these words You commanded Paul to write:

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath Righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath Light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with satan? What part hath he that believeth with an infidel? What agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For ye(who are Saved) are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Help them to understand the difficulty they face, how theirs will be a marriage of oil and water, a marriage between a Saved and unsaved is a marriage between a child of God and a child of satan. Thank You father for it is in the name of Your precious and sinless Son, our Lord and our Saviour Christ Jesus that we pray. So be it.

Note: And so ends this 40 day series of prayer for the family. I do hope and pray that you have enjoyed reading it as much as I have in writing it. I would like to thank the senior pastor of First Baptist Church of West Albuquerque, Dr. Tim Marrow, for giving me the outline prepared by the mission board of the Southern Baptist Convention and for the idea of this series.

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.
