What if Jesus really is the Christ?
What if Jesus really is God?
Just a thought by Rev. Bob Celeste
The Church for the American Christian who is a Patriot on the web.
The Apostle John had this to say about Jesus: "In the beginning was the Christ, and the Christ was with God, and Christ is God. Jesus was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Jesus; and without Him nothing thing was made." (John 1:1-3 ACP/KJV Paraphrase)
Now think about that for a moment, what if John spoke the truth? What if Jesus really did make the world? and what if He did it just the way the Bible says He did it?
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. (Genesis 1:1 ACP/KJV)
What if it is true that on the first day Jesus said: Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and
God divided the light from the dark-ness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
And on the second day Jesus said: Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
And on the third day Jesus said: Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. And Jesus called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the third day.
And on the fourth day Jesus said: Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
And on day five Jesus said: Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
And on the sixth day Jesus said: Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
And God said, Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. (Genesis 1 ACP/KJV)
And on day seven God rested. Well, if Jesus is God and if Jesus did create the universe and everything in it and on it, then He gets to make the rules.
And Jesus has a few rules, here are the ones you need to concentrate on:
Jesus said: Unless a man is born again he will not enter into the kingdom of God! (John 3;3)
Jesus said: whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 10:33)
What must one do to be saved? Funny you ask, for the very same question was asked by a prison warden of the Apostle Paul some 1,970 years ago.
The warden asked: "What must I do to be saved?" And Paul said, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house."

What you see above is what I have made into a one page two sided handout for men. I can e-mail it to you all set up in Word Perfect format, perhaps in the next week of so I can do it in Word and if anyone one out there had the ability to do it as a pdf file, let me know and I'll send it to you as a WordPerfect file set up correctly.
I took six of these down town Albuquerque with me this morning and in two minutes I handed out all six to six separate men. It was wonderful. In the ninety days we have been in Albuquerque, neither I nor my wife have seen the first person out doing any kind of street evangelizing. This in a city of half a million with probably 750,000 in the greater Albuquerque metro area.
My goal is to print up and hand out 20 a day, as a minimum. I invite yu all to join with me. Print out one or two a day and hand out one or two a day. That's all, but let me tell you, if one half of those who come to ACP hand out just two a day, that will be right on 5,000 a day being handed out. And if only 1percent of those who take on ever read it that will be 50 a day reading it and if only one percent of them turn to the Lord that will be one every other day and if only half of them become Born Again Washed in the Blood fo the Lamb Christians, that will be two a week. 100 new Born Again Washed in the Blood fo the Lamb Christians a year.
So what do you say? Will you join with me? Will you print out and hand out just two a day?

Lord, thank You for this day, thank You for the peace You have given me and thank You for the joy I felt while handing out these flyers today. Oh ya, and Lord, I could sure use a job in Albuquerque and a renter for my house in Maine. Thank You Jesus. 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.
