A daily Christian thought from:

God tells us, through Paul's first letter to the Corinthians: Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost. (1 Corinthians 12:3 ACP/KJV)
No man who is a true Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian can call Jesus anything bad! No man who is not a true Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian can say, in answer to your question of "Who do you say Jesus is?" "Jesus is the Lord God of Creation, He is One with the Father and the Holy Ghost, He is God the Creator of all things, my Lord and my Master."
All too often we simply take a person's word for it when they say "I am a Christian.". While that sounds nice to the ears, in many cases, as in the case of Jimmy Carter, it rings hollow. Why? Because there is more to it than just saying "I am a Christian." There is the proof.
Matthew Chapter Seven
1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? 10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask Him?
12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name? and in Thy name have cast out devils? and in Thy name done many wonderful works?'
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity.
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of Mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of Mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at His doctrine:
29 For He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. (Matthew chapter seven ACP/KJV)
Shall we take a minute to look at former president Carter's fruits? Yes, let's.
The mainstay of the pornography industry, the abortion industry, and the radical homosexual industry, is the legal protection afforded them by the Christ hating ACLU. Jimmy Carter honored the founder of the ACLU, Roger Nash Baldwin, by issuing him the highest civilian award, the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Read about this man president Carter so admired here: http://www.medaloffreedom.com/RogerNashBaldwin.htm
Jimmy Carter is pro-abortion and favors homosexual marriages, he is a strong supporter of those who support the idea of homosexuals being Boy Scout leaders. Are these the fruits of a man who claims to have given his life to Christ? I think not.
Had Jimmy Carter been asked: "Who do you say Jesus Christ is?" The Born Again Christian community would have know that James Earl Carter Jr. was not the man he claimed to be, but a wolf in sheep's clothing. And that is why you must ask any and all who claim to be Christians, "Who do you say Jesus Christ is?"
How did the Christians of the US get so mislead about Carter? For the same reason that so many are mislead about President Bush and the servant of evil, John Kerry. The deafening silence from the pulpit concerning the politics of individual candidates.
Has your pastor told you that President Bush has an almost 100% pro-life voting record? Has he told you that John Kerry has a 100% pro-abortion voting record.
Has your pastor told you, from the pulpit, that while John Kerry has voted against the ban on partial birth abortion every time it has come before the Senate, President Bush signed it into law.
Has your pastor told you, from the pulpit, that President Bush is in favor of a constitutional amendment to define marriage as being between one man and one woman, while John Kerry opposes the amendment and has a 100% pro-radical homosexual voting record.
Has your pastor told you, from the pulpit, the horrifying statistic that over 40% of Evangelical Christians are planning to vote for Kerry.
What I said above about asking those who claim to be Christians goes double for asking pastors. Too many pastors are leading their congregations straight to eternal damnation because of their fear of the truth and the IRS. There fear of man over God.
This very day, call your pastor and ask him these questions: "Who do you say Christ Jesus is?" Then "What is your position, not the denominations, but your position on the ordaining of women?"
If his answer is anything short of: "Jesus is the CHRIST, He is my Lord and my Master, it is only Him I serve and I pray daily to serve and please Him" . If his answer concerning ordaining women is anything less that "I oppose the ordaining of women, for how can a woman be the husband of one wife?" Then either find another church immediately or start a house church.
As Christians, we are to vote, but not just vote and not simply vote for the lesser of two evils, we are to choose the candidate that is, what he says he is, by being knowledgeable of his voting record. For a Christian to vote for Kerry is for a Christian to vote in favor of abortion and in favor of the radical homosexual agenda. Remember this, you to will be judged by your fruits!
If you vote for a pro-abortion candidate, you are denying the teachings of God. If you vote for a pro-homosexual or, God forbid, a homosexual candidate, you are spitting in God's face. Never ever forget this verse:
But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 10:33 ACP/KJV)
For a Christian, a patriot and/or a veteran to vote for John Kerry is inexcusable. For anyone who attends ACP, the Church for the American Patriot, ChristianPatriot.com to vote for Kerry is beyond belief. Kerry is opposite everything we as Christian Patriots belief.
Lord, protect us from those who would destroy us and our children, help those Russian families through the pain and suffering that You and I know so well. And Jesus, please protect us from those who would do to our kids what they did to those little Russian kids. Jesus, those who protect those terrorists are amongst those we need Your protection from. But, Your will be done Lord, not mine, but Yours Lord Jesus.
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.
