In the history of these United States, there have been two men who were honored by their peers, including those they fought against, with the title, "Most Honorable of our generation". It is neither ironic nor lost to history that both of these men came from Virginia. General George Washington and General Robert E. Lee.
There were many reason why these two men were honored with "Most Honorable of our generation". Let us look at a few.
Both men were solid Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians who were neither shy about their commitment to Christ nor willing to bow to the political correction of the day in fighting to win.
General Lee was, while still a Colonel commanding West Point, offered command of the Union Army. He declined in favor of his commitment to the Constitution of the United States, specifically the issue of States Rights as articulated in articles 9 and 10 of the Bill of Rights.
There was another item of interest that history records about both Generals Washington and Lee that we might remember today as well, both men surrounded themselves with like minded committed Christians, including personal clergy.
Today we remember the fifth anniversary of the attack on Tuesday September 11th, 2001. And while I am thankful to God that George Bush is leading our military instead of anyone from the communist, US hating, members of the Democrat party. I do certainly wish we had in his stead a man cut of the cloth of General Washington or General Lee or even the right hand of General Lee, General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson.
While George Bush waves the white flag of surrender every time the sympathizers of the enemy on the left attack any member of our Military, those who earned "Most Honorable of our generation", would have first fought to win and then heard the complaints of those woh scream "they fought to hard, they were trying to win." As we remember 9-11-01, let us not forget that there are seven Marines and one Navy Corpsman in chains at Camp Pendleton, California. The seven Marines and one Navy Corpsman are in chains based upon charges made by our nations enemies on the battlefield and within the body politic, and US press.
I would like you to take a look at the biography of the man commanding Camp Pendleton, then ask yourself, would General Jackson, General Lee, or President Washington ever have allowed a man with these credentials to command anything? Talk about the enemy within, after you read his biography, ask yourself just who do you think Col. Seaton serves?
"Colonel James B. Seaton III, USMC
Colonel Seaton is from Faribault, Minnesota, and was commissioned in 1982 through the NROTC program at Jacksonville University. Following The Basic School and Artillery Officer Basic Course, he was assigned to 3d Battalion, 10th Marines, 2nd Marine Division at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. In 1983 he deployed to Grenada and Beirut as the Naval Gunfire Spotter with Battalion Landing Team (BLT) 2/8. The following year he was assigned as the Assistant Operations Officer and later the Operations Officer for 3d Battalion, 10th Marines.
In 1985 he transferred to the aircraft carrier USS CARL VINSON. While serving as the Marine Detachment Executive Officer he deployed to the Western Pacific and Indian Ocean and was promoted to Captain. Following the Artillery Officer Advanced Course, he returned to Camp Lejeune in 1988 and again served as the Assistant Operations Officer for 3d Battalion, 10th Marines prior to assuming command of Battery H, 3d Battalion, 12th Marines and deploying to the Mediterranean with BLT 1/8.
Colonel Seaton earned a Masters Degree in political science from Duke University in 1991 and then served as a political science instructor at the U.S. Naval Academy, where he received the William P. Clements Award for Excellence in Education as the top military instructor and was promoted to Major. In 1994 he was named a Council on Foreign Relations International Affairs Fellow and assigned to the National Security Council (NSC) staff at the White House. Upon completing the fellowship he remained on the NSC staff as Director for Defense Policy.
In 1998 he transferred to 3d Marine Division in Okinawa, Japan and served as Operations Officer for 3d Battalion, 12th Marines. Following promotion to Lieutenant Colonel he was the Operations Officer for 12th Marines, commanded Landing Force CARAT in amphibious exercises throughout Southeast Asia and served as the Deputy G-3 for 3d Marine Division. In August 2001 he reported to the 1st Marine Division at Camp Pendleton, California for duty as the Division Inspector and Deputy G-7 before assuming command of 1st Battalion, 11th Marines in June 2002 and leading the battalion during Operation Iraqi Freedom. In June 2004 he transferred to 29 Palms, California for assignment as the Marine Air Ground Task Force Training Command (MAGTFTC) G-3 and was promoted to Colonel in September 2004.
Colonel Seaton's personal decorations include the Defense Superior Service Medal, Bronze Star with combat V, Defense Meritorious Service Medal, Meritorious Service Medal with 2 Gold Stars, Navy Achievement Medal, Combat Action Ribbon with two Gold Stars, and the Presidential Service Badge.
He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, Pacific Council on International Policy, Inter-University Seminar on Armed Forces & Society, and various military associations." The above quote is exactly as it was taken from (www.cpp.usmc.mil/newcomer/main.asp) the official website of Marine Corp Base Camp Pendleton.
There is another Virginian on the scene trying to be Commander and Chief of the Military, his name is Senator George Allen. While I know little of Senator Allen at this time, I can not but hope and pray that perhaps God has raised up one more Virginian who would be, if not "Most Honorable of our generation", at least one who will raise the black flag and order the US Military to secure our borders, arrest and try for treason all enemies within the body politic, and fight to destroy all enemies foreign and domestic. Perhaps God has raised up another Virginian who will not cower in fear each and every time the NY Times prints a paper, each time Ted Kennedy opens his mouth, and the likes of Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins go on televison.
Samuel also said unto Saul, "The LORD sent me to anoint thee to be king over His people, over Israel: now therefore hearken thou unto the voice of the words of the LORD."
Thus saith the LORD of hosts: I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt. Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.
And Saul gathered the people together, and numbered them in Telaim, two hundred thousand footmen, and ten thousand men of Judah. And Saul came to a city of Amalek, and laid wait in the valley. And Saul said unto the Kenites, "Go, depart, get you down from among the Amalekites, lest I destroy you with them: for ye shewed kindness to all the children of Israel, when they came up out of Egypt."
So the Kenites departed from among the Amalekites. And Saul smote the Amalekites from Havilah until thou comest to Shur, that is over against Egypt. And he took Agag the king of the Amalekites alive, and utterly destroyed all the people with the edge of the sword. But Saul and the people spared Agag, and the best of the sheep, and of the oxen, and of the fatlings, and the lambs, and all that was good, and would not utterly destroy them: but every thing that was vile and refuse, that they destroyed utterly. (1 Samuel 15:1-9 ACP/KJV)
I firmly believe that President Washington, Generals Lee and Jackson would have done exactly what God ordered them, thru the voice of the prophet Samuel, to do. Just as I am firmly convinced that President George Bush, although light years better than any democrat, would have spared even more than Saul, at least Saul killed most of the enemy. I have no doubts an Al Gore presidency would have surrounded to the Amalekites.
Then came the word of the LORD unto Samuel, saying, It repenteth Me that I have set up Saul to be king: for he is turned back from following Me, and hath not performed My commandments. (1 Samuel 15:10a-11 ACP/KJV)
The muslims who attacked us are not only the enemies of the US, but are the forces of evil, the forces of satan. Don't you think it grieves God that the man He anointed to lead this country has appointed the likes of Colonel Seaton? Do you not think that God is grieved to His heart when he looks down and sees President Bush kowtowing to the leftist press, the Christ denying and haters in the body politic and press?
And while I personally and glad that President Bush is in office instead of Gore, it grieves me to my heart to see what is happening to our nation because this president has not the courage, honor and commitment of a Lee, Washington or Jackson. It grieves me to my heart that we focus on and beat our breast over the lose of 4,000 men and women fighting for this nation over a 5 year period. While in that same five years over seven and a half million US babies have been slaughtered while they slept peacefully in the supposed safety of their mothers wombs, over 250,000 US men, women and children died in auto accidents, over 20,000 men, women and children have died due to violent crime in the US and six members of the US Senate who are guilty of treason still sit with impunity and making laws because our President is afraid to exercise his powers and quivers at the thought of what the press will say.
Let us close this day of remembrance with:
LORD, how they have increased that trouble me! Many are they that rise up against me. Many there be which say of my soul, "There is no help for him from his God."
But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; You are my glory, and You are the lifter up of my heart and soul.
I have cried unto the LORD with my voice, and He has heard me from His holy place. Therefore I can lay me down and slept; I can awake knowing that while satan means all things for evil, You Oh Lord my God can and will make them for our good; for the LORD our God sustains me.
And while the deeds and cowardice of our nations leaders grieve me, I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, even if they have set themselves against me round about.
Arise, O LORD; save our nation, O my God: for Thou can, if it be Thy will, smite all mine enemies, You can destroy all the ungodly and return our nation to a leadership in the mold of Washington, Lee and Jackson.
For Salvation belongeth unto You my LORD: Thy blessing can be upon Thy people, if only; Your people, which are called by Your name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek Your face, and turn from their wicked ways; Then I am sure You will hear from heaven, and You will forgive our sins, and You will heal our lives and our land. 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.
