Gentlemen, we are at war. Not a war of the US against world wide terrorism, but a war of good verses evil, the forces of Christ verses the forces of evil.
My brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. Pray that I might put on the whole armour of God, that I may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For I wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Be faithful prayer warriors that I may be able to put on the whole armour of God, that I may be able to withstand, in this evil day, and doing so may be able to stand at the end of this day.
Stand with me as prayer warriors, insuring that my loins are girt about with truth, and that I have on the breastplate of righteousness, that my feet are shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; and above all that, taking the shield of faith. Pray that I am able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. Your prayers as prayer warriors will insure that I have on the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
This will only happen if you are praying for me, Dan, Cecily and Kelly, with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for the safety of Dan, Kelly, Cecily and I.
While I still cannot go into any detail about what is happening, think, in 10 years I have never asked for this kind of prayer. Let me tell you, even if I had 7,000 armed men here with me, I would still not be safe, nor would Kelly, Danny or Cecily. I, with so little faith, am now coming to realize that only Christ can get us through this.
Gentlemen, in a few weeks Eric is going to China as a warrior of Christ, I will be calling upon you to support him, not with overly taxed, monopoly money looking coin of the realm, but with prayer. Today, it is I, Cecily, Kelly and Dan that are in a place that may be even more dangerous than China.
And when Jesus had sent the multitudes away, He went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, He was there alone. But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.
And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, "It is a spirit;" and they cried out for fear.
But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. And Peter answered Him and said, "Lord, if it be Thou, bid me come unto Thee on the water."
And Jesus said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, "Lord, save me."
And immediately Jesus stretched forth His hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? (Matthew 14:23-31)
Gentlemen, I, with so much less faith than Peter ever had, can not afford the luxury of taking one step and getting distracted by the things around me and start to sink.
It is not my safety I am concerned about, it is the safety of my wife, my son and my 3 year old granddaughter.
Gentlemen, I can not do my part if you don't do your part. As an army can not move without the cooks and support people, neither can I move without your prayer support.
There is nothing our God, the Lord God of Creation, Christ Jesus can not do if we go to Him with a pure heart, pure intentions and pure faith, unfortunately there is nothing pure about me. With me Christ started with a septic system that had never been pumped out and still has much, much, much to do.
Oh Lord God of Creation, my Lord, my Saviour, my King and older Brother, Your servant Peter would only have sunk into water, I, Lord shudder to think what it is that I and mine may sink into. Lord, Kelly is Yours. Cecily and I are Yours, Lord without You we can not win. Please Jesus, I confess, my faith is weak, we sink, safe us. Amen.
Sha'al shalowm Yruwshalaim.
Never ever forget this: There aint no purgatory!

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.
