Words of Thanks

Friday April 29th, 2005
Last Friday I used the bully pulpit of ChristianPatriot.com in seeking wisdom and guidance asking for help in caring for my in-laws. Two days later that help arrived in the form of a lady named Robin. Yes, Pastor Bob and I should have rejoiced and given thanks together. He made the correct assumption that I already had been on my knees before the Lord. Today I would like to share a short passage from 1 Chronicles 16 that probably says the best thank you that a humble follower of Christ can express.

1 Chronicles 16:7-36 (KJV)

7: Then on that day David delivered first this psalm to thank the LORD into the hand of Asaph and his brethren.
8: Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon His name, make known His deeds among the people.
9: Sing unto Him, sing psalms unto Him, talk ye of all His wondrous works.
10: Glory ye in His holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.
11: Seek the LORD and His strength, seek His face continually.
12: Remember His marvellous works that He hath done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth;
13: O ye seed of Israel His servant, ye children of Jacob, His chosen ones.
14: He is the LORD our God; His judgments are in all the earth.
15: Be ye mindful always of His covenant; the word which He commanded to a thousand generations;
16: Even of the covenant which He made with Abraham, and of His oath unto Isaac;
17: And hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant,
18: saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance;
19: When ye were but few, even a few, and strangers in it.
20: And when they went from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people;
21: He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, He reproved kings for their sakes,
22: saying, Touch not Mine anointed, and do My prophets no harm.
23: Sing unto the LORD, all the earth; shew forth from day to day His salvation.
24: Declare His glory among the heathen; His marvellous works among all nations.
25: For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised: He also is to be feared above all gods.
26: For all the gods of the people are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.
27: Glory and honour are in His presence; strength and gladness are in His place.
28: Give unto the LORD, ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength.
29: Give unto the LORD the glory due unto His name: bring an offering, and come before Him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
30: Fear before Him, all the earth: the world also shall be stable, that it be not moved.
31: Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let men say among the nations, The LORD reigneth.
32: Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof: let the fields rejoice, and all that is therein.
33: Then shall the trees of the wood sing out at the presence of the LORD, because He cometh to judge the earth.
34: O give thanks unto the LORD; for He is good; for His mercy endureth for ever.
35,36: And say ye, "Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us together, and deliver us from the heathen, that we may give thanks to Thy holy name, and glory in Thy praise. Blessed be the LORD God of Israel for ever and ever." And all the people said, "Amen", and praised the LORD.

Pastor Steve Burzlaff

Note: Steve is going to be 55 in a few days, let us all wish him a very happy and blessed birthday, may the Lord our God, Christ Jesus continue to bless him with His holy word.

Let me also thank God for healing Molly, Molly is a young girl who it appeared may have had cancer, she and her mom prayed and Jesus heard and answered their prayer and Molly, thank You Jesus, is fine.


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.

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

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 my friend Mac, 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 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.
