You have got to be saying "Thank God for Olympia, the queen of infanticide, Snowe."?
Why in the world would I suggest we thank God for the likes of Olympia, the queen of infanticide, Snowe?
The reason I suggest to you that you Thank God for Olympia, the queen of infanticide, Snowe, my brothers and sisters, is really quite simple. I like many of you and the Apostle John, often pray the Lord will return and gather His church unto Himself.
In the year 55AD, the blessed Apostle Paul wrote:
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: and According as He hath chosen us in Him, before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love: for Having predestinated us unto the adoption as His children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the beloved.
In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace; wherein He hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; having made known unto us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He hath purposed in Himself:
10. That in the dispensation of the fulness of times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in Him:
In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of Him who worketh all things after the counsel of His own will. That we should be to the praise of His glory, who first trusted in Christ. (Ephesians 1:3-12 ACP/KJV)
In 90 AD the beloved Apostle John prayed: Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. (Revelation 22:20b-21 ACP/KJV)
So, why does this cause me to suggest to you, or more correctly, that we all thank God for US Senator Olympia, the queen of infanticide, Snowe, her minions and her ilk in government?
Well, we know that Jesus is going to rapture His bride, the true Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian church, an instant before the tribulation period begins.
Going back to the pen of Paul back in 55 AD:
But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him.
For this we say unto you, by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 ACP/KJV)
Now we beseech you brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto Him, that ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and *that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he, as God, sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. * that man of sin is the anti-Christ, he does not get that position of power in a vacuum, he achieves it by the allowance of God and the doggoned work of his servants, no small part of which are those who serve him in high public office, public office like the US Senate.
Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he (the anti-Christ) might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only He (God the Holy Spirit) who now letteth will let, until He be taken out of the way. The Holy Spirit evidently is literally raptured with Christ bride.
And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming: At the end of the seven years, the Lord comes back to earth, not just in the air, but, stepping on the earth, at that time He cleans satan's clock.
Even Him whose coming is after the working of satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the Truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the Truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto He called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
Now our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work. (2 Thessalonians 2:1-17 ACP/KJV)
Still confused? You won't be in one minute, after this bit of Scripture, you'll understand why it is that, those of us looking forward to the Lord rapturing His church, thank Him for the likes of Senator Olympia, the queen of infanticide, Snowe, her minions and her ilk.
But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. (Matthew 24:36-39 ACP/KJV)
Scripture tells us much about the days before the flood. Lying, cheating, homosexuality, sexual impurity, immodesty, worshiping man more than God, worshiping false gods and idols. Society had become very much like the liberals want society today to be.
Jesus tells us that He is not coming back till society is once again like it was at the time of Noah. The forces of evil, the forces in the body politic that pursue the agenda of satan are working as hard as they can to hasten the time when our society will rival the time of Noah.
So while it sounds strange, for all of us that would love to see Rapture in our life time, to thank God for the likes of Olympia Snowe, we really need to thank those who are working so hard to degenerate our society to the point where once again the time is such that Scripture will repeat itself:
And it repented the LORD that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man, whom I have created, from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, Barney Frank, Ted Kennedy, John Kerry and the vast majority of the body politic in the USA are working hard to pass the laws that will move us ever closer to the time when the Lord will, with a shout gather His to Himself. The time I see in Revelation chapter six as happening like this: "and behold a white horse: and He that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto Him: and He went forth conquering, and to conquer."
Perhaps that is why Jesus commands us to: Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.
So, Thank God for Olympia, the queen of infanticide, Snowe.
Lord, I still find it a lot easier to come to You in prayer, thanking you for Jim, Steve and Warren, and asking your healing for little Kellie and Myra's mom, and the salvation of all my children than, I do giving you thanks for Olympia, the queen of infanticide, Snowe and her ilk. For while I would love You to rapture us while I am still alive, I still find it hard to thank You for those who use the power of their office to lead this nation and world to satan. 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.
