Sometimes, God gives me so many things to say that I just don't know were to start yet, I know deep down inside that I'll never live long enough to say everything, so where to start. Kind of like a parent with a child, when it comes to what is right and what is wrong.
I know that the most important thing I can give you, is the understanding of just how important it is for you to read and study your Bible and attend a solid Christ centered, Christ preaching church. I sometimes wonder what I would say if I were to die this very instant and find myself standing before the Lord God of Creation, Christ Jesus.
What would I say in answer to His question; "Bob, is there anything you wish you had preached on more?" My answer would have to be, "Lord, I wish I had been more clear on why men should study Your word more and attend a solid Christ centered, Christ preaching church." The last thing in the world I would want to hear Him say in response is "Me too Bob, Me too."
6,317 years ago, satan succeeded in separating Adam from God. We don't know how long satan had been working on this, we only know that he finally succeeded 6,317 years ago. How did satan finally succeed? How did this symbol of total evil finally succeed in separating Adam and therefore us, from God?
Genesis chapter three
1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, 'Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.'" 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. 9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? 10 And he (Adam) said, "I heard Thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself." 11 And He said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
12 And the man said, "The woman whom Thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat." 13 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, "The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat." (Genesis 3:1-13 ACP/KJV)
Satan corrupted and separated Adam and us from God by deceiving Eve, who then deceived Adam. Satan did this by first corrupting the word of God, he didn't do this by deceiving Adam, he did this by deceiving Adam via Adams rib, Eve. Adam trusted Eve, he trusted Eve with his very salvation. And that is where Adam made his biggest mistake. You see, Adam, like many of you, could go directly to God to find out the truth, but Adam got lazy, he trusted someone else, he trusted Eve and as a result when Eve fell, so did he. And who won? Satan!
Your salvation is your responsibility, it is not mine, it is not your pastors, it is not your wife's , it is yours. And if you let yourself be lead astray by your wife, your pastor, or your 'best' friend, you are the ultimate loser and satan is the ultimate gainer, for it is in the lake of fire you will reside for all eternity, with satan, not eternal paradise with Christ Jesus.
I know it is hard to change churches, I know it is hard to put your foot down with your wife. I know that your wife is part of your body and is to be treated as such. But, when your wife is wrong, you must put your foot down and correct her. For it is through her that satan will often times try to corrupt you. Look, when you're about to burn your hand, do yo not pull it away from the fire? When you are going to hit your thumb with a hammer, do you not try to move it out of the way? So it should be with your wife, when she is using her emotions instead of her head, you must say "No!" to her, you must reign her in. No, you need not be a tyrant nor a dictator, but you must be the head of the household. You must be aware that satan uses women, including our own rib, to corrupt men.
You must avoid churches that put women in places of authority, you must avoid churches that especially use deceptive means to put women in places of authority by giving them titles befitting a woman, but the authority of pastors or assistant pastors or even worse, God forbid, youth pastors. You must stay close to the Lord God of Creation, Christ Jesus. You must read and study your Bible daily or even more.
Remember: Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: (1Peter 5:8)
Guys, don't stay around trying to change a church or denomination that ordains women either openly or under the guise of another title, for how can you change them? Think about it, once even one woman is put in the pulpit, how are they going to remove her? Once even one woman is accepted as a pastor, assistant pastor or God forbid, as a youth pastor, how do you get rid of her?
21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. 22 And ye shall be hated of all men for My name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. 23 But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of Man be come.
24 The disciple is not above his Master, nor the servant above his Lord. 25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his Master, and the servant as his Lord. If they have called the Master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of His household?
26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. 27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. 28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. 30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. 32 Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father which is in heaven. 33 But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 10:21-33 ACP/KJV)
Look carefully at what the Lord says in the warning above.
Oh Lord, please open their eyes. 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.
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.
