Are we a nation of thieves?


Have we become a nation of thieves? I'm sixty years old, in 1958 I got my drivers license and gas was 19 cents a gallon, today the tax alone on a gallon of gas is over 42 cents a gallon here in Maine. More in some states, less in others, but in all states the federal bite is over 22 cents a gallon. Are we becoming a nation of thieves?

In 1976 the people of this nation sent James Earl Carter, a lying thief to Washington as President of these Untied States. In 1988 we tried to prove to ourselves that Republicans can be every bit as unhonorable as democrats, so we sent George Herbert Walker Bush to the oval office. In 1992, convinced Bush was not totally corrupted,, we scraped the bottom of the barrel of slime and we crowned the Clintons, just to see how fast and furious undermining of a society could be accomplished. And now we look to finish off the Constitution, destroy what is left of our national honor, courage, decency and freedoms by taking serious the nomination of a traitor, a liar, a communist, a man who supports abortion through the first thirty days after a baby is born, John Kerry of Massachusetts. So I ask you again; Are we becoming a nation of thieves?

We have become such a nation of lies and deceit that we actually consider President George Bush number 43 a conservative. If it were not for the fact that we are a nation at war and that President Bush signed into law the ban on partial birth abortion, I would be strongly suggesting to you that you and yours stay home this coming November 2nd. But the alternative is not one who will come to Washington and cleanse the government, but one who will work to destroy it totally and emphatically. One who will not stop till every baby in the womb has a price tag on his or her head and an open season with a reward for their scalps.

Today as we study Mark chapter eleven, we should learn from the Lord, we should look to do to this government what Jesus did to the thieves in the temple. We should get our whips and scourge the thieves and baby killers of both parties. And we can do this with our vote, but, time is running out.

Mark chapter eleven

1 And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, He sendeth forth two of His disciples, 2 And saith unto them, Go your way into the village over against you: and as soon as ye be entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring him. 3 And if any man say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye that the Lord hath need of him; and straightway he will send him hither.

4 And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door without in a place where two ways met; and they loose him. 5 And certain of them that stood there said unto them, "What do ye, loosing the colt?" 6 And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they let them go. 7 And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and He sat upon him.

8 And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and strawed them in the way. 9 And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, "Hosanna; Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord: 10 Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest."

11 And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when He had looked round about upon all things, and now the eventide was come, He went out unto Bethany with the twelve. 12 And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, He was hungry: 13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, He came, if haply He might find any thing thereon: and when He came to it, He found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. 14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And His disciples heard it.

15 And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves; 16 and would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple. 17 And He taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves. 18 And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy Him: for they feared Him, because all the people was astonished at His doctrine. 19 And when even was come, He went out of the city.

20 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. 21 And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto Him, "Master, behold, the fig tree which Thou cursedst is withered away." 22 & 23 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. 25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

27 And they come again to Jerusalem: and as He was walking in the temple, there come to Him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders, 28 and say unto Him, "By what authority doest Thou these things? and who gave Thee this authority to do these things?" 29 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I will also ask of you one question, and answer Me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. 30 The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men? answer Me.

31 And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; He will say, 'Why then did ye not believe him?' 32 But if we shall say, Of men; they feared the people: for all men counted John, that he was a prophet indeed. 33 And they answered and said unto Jesus, "We cannot tell." And Jesus answering saith unto them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things. (Mark 11:1-33 ACP/KJV)

Scripture, in Mark 11:15-18, says this: "And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves; and would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple. And He taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves. And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy Him: for they feared Him, because all the people was astonished at His doctrine."

It could have been George Bush #43, that we wrote this about:

And he came into Washington and prosecuted the previous administrations, taught the Constitution, returned the nation to one fearing the Lord God of Creation, Christ Jesus. He cleaned out the US Congress, Supreme Court and media and restored dignity and honor to the nation. And as he did these things, he reminded us that ours is a government designed by honorable men to be run by honorable men. And the politicians and media sought to destroy him, but they feared the people who supported his restoring of the nation and their rights to them.

But it won't be, not as long as President Bush is more interested in what Senators Ted Kennedy and Olympia, the queen of infanticide, Snowe, the media anti-everything decent clones of Peter Jennings and the UN think about him.

We must prevent a Kerry regime, but we must also use the power of our votes and our pocketbooks to insure that on November 4th, 2008, there is one running who we can be proud of.

Pray for our troops, pray that the Lord will touch the heart of one with stars on his shoulders, one who will put promotions and retirement behind his concern for the welfare of the troops and just ignore Washington and politics and order the men to win. Not one that says to the enemy, "you have X time left to surrender", but one that says to the enemy, "your time is up, prepare to go to hell!" And then orders our troops "ATTACK!" And hold back nothing. And pray that the Lord God of Creation, Christ Jesus, will give us a bit more time. 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.

I would also like to thank the Lord that Dorothy has a large print Bible, while I am not to happy about the way she got it, I am pleased that she has it. And now my prayer is that she will read it and the Lord will let the Holy Spirit guide her to understanding it. Amen.

The Lord be with you all and please keep me in your prayers. I have some very important decision to make over the next few weeks or months, I need your prayers. 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 daughters of Will, for Will, and his mom. Pray that the Lord will put the girls back under the control of Steve.

Pray for my friend Mac, pray for Rush and Michael Savage. While the Lord does not need the platforms and audiences that Rush and Michael have, they, Rush, Michael and their audiences need the Lord.

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.
