Today's Christian thought: Wednesday October 29th, 2003
Had only someone cared enough to drill Solomon's Proverbs into Kobe Bryant and Bill Clinton's head.
My son, keep your father's command, And do not forsake the law of your mother. Bind them continually upon your heart; Tie them around your neck.
When you roam, they will lead you;
When you sleep, they will keep you;
And when you awake, they will speak with you.
For the commandment is a lamp, And the law a light; Reproofs of instruction are the way of life,
To keep you from the evil woman, From the flattering tongue of a seductress. Do not lust after her beauty in your heart, Nor let her allure you with her eyelids. For by means of a harlot A man is reduced to a crust of bread; And an adulteress will prey upon his precious life.
Can a man take fire to his bosom, And his clothes not be burned? Can one walk on hot coals, And his feet not be seared? (Proverb 6:20-28)
Former President William Jefferson Blythe Clinton was impeached because of his adultery. Kobe Bryant has lost reputation, money, prestige, advertisers, and fans because he committed adultery. Wives have lost husbands, family, honor and dignity because of the act of adultery.
Over the years, I have met and known men who poached game to feed their families, I have met and known both men and women who have stolen to feed and clothe their families. Both the poacher and the thief I have invited into my home. For, what man would hate or despise a man or woman who steals or poaches to feed or clothe his or her family? But the adulterer or adulteress, who has anything but contempt for them? How many families have been destroyed, children left without mom and dad because of the premeditated act of adultery.
Adultery is never spontaneous, it is never necessary, it is always a premeditated act of despisal, hatred, and the intentional inflicting harm on ones family. It is the act of intentionally working to destroy ones family, it is an act of hatred against ones spouse and children, parents and in-laws. Yet to our government and our courts, it is nothing but a 'moral issue'. As a pastor I see the unbelievable hurt done to families, especially children, because of the sickening and disgustingly selfish act of adultery by both men and women.
Yet, the courts, the police, and the government of the Untied States, while screaming "we have to do more for the children", turn a blind eye to the horrors of the one thing that destroys the lives of more children each year than anything else, adultery. The government stands by and watches the destruction of the family through the adultery of either mom or dad, claiming it is nothing more than a 'moral issue'. I sometimes wonder if the beast of Revelation is not a man, but government.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:12)
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all, amen.
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.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
The Lord be with and bless you all and may you all keep this very important point in mind. It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
Lord I would also ask You to be with my friend Mac, and for the salvation of Michael Savage and Rush Limbaugh. Amen.
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.
