The desire of a man is his kindness: and a poor man is better than a liar. (Proverbs 19:22) Yes, it is better to be broke than to be a liar. It is better to be homeless, living under a bridge than it is to live in the White House and be a pathological liar like the impeached and disgraced ex-president Clinton.
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (John 8:44 ACP/KJV) Jesus tells us on many occasions that we are to judge, not based upon a mans looks, but upon his fruits. When on lies, that person is not the child of Christ, but the child of satan. Take a minute and think about Kerry and Clinton, is there any doubt that they serve satan? For is there ever a time when they tell the truth?
All who deny that Jesus is the Christ are liars! He is an antichrist, that denies the Father and the Son. (1John 2:22 ACP/KJV paraphrase) for Clinton and Kerry to embrace abortion, the blood sacrifice of children trapped in the womb to satan, as Clinton and Kerry do is to deny the God of Life, Christ Jesus and embrace the god of death, satan. To embrace satan is to be an antichrist.
So, let see, God tells us in Proverbs that it is better to be an honest toothless, homeless, beggar living under a bridge than to be a liar living in a castle. Later Jesus tells us that liars are the children of satan. And then God tells us through His servant the Apostle John, that those who lie are antichrist.
And if the above isn't bad enough, then we have this:
And He (Christ Jesus) that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And He said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.
I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be My son.
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. (Revelation 21:5-8 ACP/KJV)
Now, I want to get to the point, I want to tell you about two people. First I want to tell you about Mary Lou Retton, a Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian. And then I'm going to tell you a little about the pathological liar, who is running for President, John Kerry.
Mary Lou Retton, one of the most dynamic and foremost gymnast of our time. Mary Lou tells of one of the most difficult times she ever had, it was the day the young man she had been seeing asked her to marry him. Why was that such a difficult time? It was difficult because Mary Lou wanted to say yes, more than anything she wanted to say yes, yet she had a secret that she needed to tell him about.
You see, Mary Lou, being Christian, knew that you could not build a marriage with a foundation built upon even one lie. You see, Mary Lou was not a virgin, and she knew that she could not say yes to this young man unless she told him that she had already given the wedding gift God intended for her and the man God choose to be her husband, her virginity, to another. She had made a tragic mistake, she had let some smooth talker, talk her into giving up her virginity. She had only done it that one time, yet, her virginity was gone for ever. That precious gift that God ha entrusted to her, the gift He had given to her to share with her husband on their wedding night, was gone. And she knew she had to tell this young man.
Now, the 2004 Olympics are going on, we have been watching the gymnastic competition for the last three nights or so. After watching the young girls performing, can anyone doubt that Mary Lou could have lied to this young man and said, 'yes Shannon, I'll marry you, but, you know all those gymnastic things I have done? Well my hymen broke through all the strenuous stretching exercises, I'm a virgin, but, I do not have a hymen.' But, she didn't tell that lie, she told him the truth. Then she held her breath and prayed while this young man digested what she ha just told him. Mary Lou and Shannon were marrried and have three kids now.
Now let's look at John Kerry. Kerry is not only a pathological liar, but a stupid liar at that.
On the floor of the Senate on March 27, 1986, Sen. John Kerry issued this statement: "I remember Christmas of 1968 sitting on a gunboat in Cambodia. I remember what it was like to be shot at by Vietnamese and Khmer Rouge and Cambodians, and have the President of the United States telling the American people that I was not there; the troops were not in Cambodia. I have that memory which is seared ---- seared ---- in me."
The problems with Kerry's statement are many fold, but we will focus on two very obvious lies. First, Kerry was never sent to Cambodia. And second, the statement about remembering the president saying there are no troops in Cambodia, Kerry later added that, that president was Richard Nixon. President Richard Nixon did not take office till January of 1969. Yet instead of now recanting and telling the truth, Kerry keeps redoing and retelling his lie trying to make it go away.
Why is it that Mary Lou had to tell the truth and Kerry has to lie? Well, Mary Lou is the daughter of the Father of Truth, Christ Jesus. And Kerry is the son of the father of all lies, satan. Do your kids lie? Do you lie?
If you don't train 'em, don't blame 'em!
So, you ask yourself, why is that the country is so enthralled with John Kerry? We will look at that Friday.
Lord help us to have the courage of little Mary Lou, help us to always tell the truth. Amen.
May the Lord understand the importance of Mac and Cecily 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.
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 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.
