Over the next three days. Tuesday May 6th, 2003
Over the next three days, God willing, we are going to look at three things dealing with today. We are going to take a look at some of the problems encountered in the schools and how those problems are exasperated , in the opinion of a senior DARE officer, by the lack of parental involvement.
We are going to take a look at Mary Magdalene and put to rest the absolute nonsense that she was a prostitute.
And today we are going to take a look at the strange murder(s) and suicide(s) surrounding a church in New Sweden, Maine.
Over the last couple of weeks there has been a tragic murder in the news. A couple of weeks ago a Evangelical Lutheran church in New Sweden, Maine was having a coffee hour after their service. Someone had laced the coffee with arsenic. This arsenic took the life of one and put another dozen or so in the hospital. A week later another member of the church committed suicide. The police, now bear something in mind, what I'm relaying to you here came from two sources, neither of which I would bet my life on for both have a tendency to be more interested in being politically correct than honest, the Maine State Police and the news media.
But, two points made in Scripture jumped out at me from the very first time I heard of this incident:
Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven devils. And she went and told them that had been with Jesus, as they mourned and wept. And they, when they had heard that Jesus was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.
After that Jesus appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country, and they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them. (see Luke 24:13-35).
Afterward Jesus appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen Him after He was risen. And He said unto them,
Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them;
they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, He was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. (Mark 16:9-19)
The second verse that comes to mind is when Jesus was confronted by satan, now I want you to read this carefully for this is going to bring out my point.
And satan brought Jesus to Jerusalem, and set Him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto Him, "If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence: For it is written, God shall give is angels charge over Thee, to keep Thee: And in their hands they shall bear Thee up, lest at any time Thou dash Thy foot against a stone."
And Jesus answering said unto satan, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. (Luke 4:9-12)
This points out why you must read your bible, why you must test anything and everything you hear against what is written in the word of God. For many are told weird things and they think these things come from God. They think this because they don't read God's word and therefore do not know when it is satan whispering in their ear, telling them to do something that contradicts Gods law, just as satan tried to do with the Lord.
My point is this, if this church member who killed himself killed himself because he had listened to a voice in his head telling him that he and those in his church could drink poison and it would have no effect on them, thinking it was God telling him these things, it was because he did not read the word of God, for had he read God's word on a daily basis, he would have know that God does not tell people to test Him.
Over the next two days, as I cover Mary Magdalene and DARE, you are going to see even more reason why you must turn to God's word and not trust little voices in your head.
The Lord our God, Messiah Yeshua be with and bless those of you who are Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians and may He open the eyes of you who are not.
Lord God Creator of all things, we, the people of the USA, give Thee thanks for giving us the second chance we do not deserve. We thank Thee Lord for our brave troops who are at this very instant freeing and liberating people through out the kingdom of satan. Amen. And Lord we beseech Thee that Thou would send to our men a Paul, to preach Your word to them before they go to free those held captive by the forces of evil left by Saul. Touch the Presidents heart Lord, lead him in a direction to send evangelist to our troops, give him the strength Lord to serve You, to use his office, that You have entrusted him with, as Commander in Chief to authorize and send solid evangelical Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian evangelist preachers to bring the Word of God to our troops, giving them both reason to fight and the Lord's plan of salvation.
Lord Jesus, it is in Thy Sacred and Holy Name I pray, Amen.
All Scripture is 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.
God blessed America when she feared Him, now it appears, she may face His wrath.
