There are but two choices to make in life. Follow and belong to Jesus or follow and belong to satan. Likewise there are only two world views to choose between, God created the world in six literal twenty four hour days or that the world evolved from a bit of dust and some acid rain over millions and billions of years. These two choices are 180 degrees opposite one and other, there is no middle ground, and there is and can be no compromise.
Now before we continue I want you to see something, I want you to see two time lines, they are both the same length, only have different numbers plugged into them. One is from the word of God, the Holy Bible. The other is from the word of satan, darwin's theory of evolution.
Fall of man 6,415 years ago: >I____flood____________I< today 2005
bang 2,000,000,000 yrs ago: >I____Iceage___________I< today 2005
You see both the time lines are the same length. They simply have two different sets of numbers plugged in. We get our numbers from the Bible, and they get their numbers out of thin air.
We arrive at 6,415 years since the fall of man by using real history, because we know exactly the dates of such things as the time of Solomon's temple and the time that the Jews left Egypt. In addition, we can go back from either of those dates, using the Bible's history of generations as shown to us in the begats in Genesis 5 up to the flood which occurred 1656 years after God evicted man from the Garden of Eden. We can then go to Genesis 11 and find the years between Shem and Abram. Consequently, we have an extremely accurate record of dates and times from the fall of man until today.
But what do the evolutionists use? Well first of all, they claim to use fossil records (Now for us who believe the Bible, we know that there was no death before the fall of man, for God Himself shed the first blood by killing two animals, probably sheep, to clothe Adam and Eve.) But the evolutionists, while claiming that the world is 2 or3 billion years old, have absolutely no proof. So they say that their proof is in the fossil records which they age according to their plugged in numbers. First they come up with a theory, then they plug in numbers that they made up or plucked out of thin air, to supposedly prove that theory. Kind of like going around in circles. The made up theory is proved by the made up numbers which prove the made up theory, which prove the made up numbers....
What if I told you that the Bible prophesied the "evolution revolution" about 1750 years before it happened, would you believe me?
This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:
Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, 'Where is the promise of His coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.' For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: (2 Peter 3:1-6 ACP/KJV)
As you read what God is telling us through His hand picked Apostle, Peter, this is what we see:
In the last days, that would be now, there will be scoffers. Do you know what "scoffers" are? They are men, woman, and children that laugh at the Holy Bible, claiming it is a lie. They claim that it is full of contradictions, full of stories made up by men. They claim that God did not create the world, we evolved. They say, the word "day" in Genesis one is not a 24 hour day, but a day made up of millions or billions of years.
A scoffer is anyone who looks at the Word of God, the Holy Bible, and does not confess that it is the perfect word of God, and that every word, thought, and verse between the "In the beginning" of Genesis 1:1 and the "Amen" of Revelation 22:21 is exactly what God meant to say in His book and how He meant to say it. And if we don't understand something, it is not because God could not or did not use proper language, but that we simply don't understand what he is saying because we are not as smart as God.
Many a preacher standing in a pulpit on Sunday morning is a scoffer, for many of them have fallen for the trap set by satan and required to get a Phd, claiming that each day in Genesis chapter one is really a million or billion years. And many of you may have fallen for that as well, making you, by default "scoffers."
Now why do I say that? "For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:"
What are they willingly ignorant of? They are willingly ignorant of the fact that God made the earth, that God created the world. And the other thing they are willfully ignorant of is that God flooded the earth. Does that not sound like and describe the evolutionists? They have replaced creation with the big bang theory: Two pieces of dust slammed together billions of years ago. This dust somehow became a rock or two and then from somewhere came some acid rain that fell on the rock and from that came about the earth, and some single celled living things a the bottom of a pond, from which climbed out something or other that became a monkey and lo and behold from that monkey came man.
Then they replaced the flood with a handful of ice ages and their evidence for these things is even more stupid than their original theory. Yet a lot of people embrace these lies.
Now, why? Why and what is this all about?
That my dear brothers and sisters is just as plain as the nose on your face. Look, two world views: One: God created the heavens and the earth and all things on them and in them in six literal days. That there was no death till the fall of man and that, that fall did not take place until 6,415 years ago. The Creation world view holds abortion and euthanasia to be murder, that pornography is wrong, that homosexuality is not only a sin, but is an abomination in the eyes of God punishable by death, adultery is the only grounds for divorce between two Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians. AND that man gets to live one life and after he takes his last breath, he will stand before a Holy and Just God who will judge him.
But the world view, the view put out by satan's servants, the evolutionists claim that: God doesn't count, God did not create the world, and since God did not create the world, He does not exist, so there is no such thing as sin, only man's laws. And man's laws not only do not prohibit, but encourage abortion, euthanasia, homosexuality, and adultery. Man's laws even protecs, as free speech, pornography.
You see, if satan can get you to question God's account of how God created the universe, if satan can get you to start judging the word of God in Genesis one by so called scientific proof, which is neither science nor proof, then satan can get you to question the rest of God's Holy word. If satan can get you to doubt the literal 24 hour day in Genesis one, then how hard is it for him to convince you that the flood was not worldwide? Can satan get you doubting by simply having "scientists" tell you that there is not enough water to flood the entire earth? And from there how hard is it for him to cause you, through the reports of medical scientists who claim that one can not be a virgin and get pregnant at the same time, to get you doubting the virgin birth of the Lord Christ Jesus? What do you think satan's scientists have to say about the Trinity?
Genesis is the bedrock foundation of our faith. Take Genesis out, turn it around, or force it to be justified by heathen, satan serving, lying, Christ hating scientists, and you destroy Christianity.
Do you see why there is no middle ground? Do you understand that you either take the entire Bible as the inerrant word of God or you are not working for Christ, but against Him?
Let me close with a friendly reminder from the Lord: "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon." You cannot follow both the doctrine of God and the doctrine of satan. You cannot adhere to both the fact that God Created the World and the lie of evolution. There is no common ground, there is no point of compromise. You are either in this with and on Christ's side or you are against the Lord God of Creation, Christ Jesus.
Joshua said it first, but I will repeat it here for you; "Choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."
This day I will challenge you in much the same way: I will demand of you to choose whom ye will serve; whether the gods of evolution or the God of Creation. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord God of Creation, CHRIST JESUS! What about you? Who are you going to follow, serve, and belong to?
Lord Jesus, Creator of the universe, thank You, thank You Lord for giving us Your perfect record of how all things came about. Now Lord help us to understand that it is Your way or satan's way, that there is no middle ground and there is neither evolution nor purgatory. Lord, let those who read this thought understand it and join You. Amen.
PLease pray for Danny Calhoun, Danny and Theresa Gilpatrick, Seth Winslow, George Robert and this ministry and all involved with it.
Never ever forget this: There aint no purgatory!
Lord Jesus, please give women a love for their babies, from the moment of conception on, let them love them I pray Thee. Amen.
The Lord bless you all and may He heal Mel's eyes and Myra's ears. May You be with Colby as he is now out of boot camp and into Fleet Marine Corps, A Christian babe amongst many a wolf.
And Lord I ask You to bless those who bless me and mine tenfold for the blessing they are to me.

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 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.
