A daily Christian thought from:
ACP, The Church for the American Christian who is a Patriot
Pro-Christ, Pro-Life, Pro-Constitution.
Pastor Robert M., Bob, Celeste ACP
Monday November 1st,
If you have not voted already, tomorrow is the deadline for casting your ballot in this Presidential and other races this year. On the ballot in Illinois is one of the finest Christian men in government today, Allen Keyes. Allen is running for the US Senate. But, he has literally no chance of winning. Why? Allan is black. He is pro-Christ, pro-life and pro-gun. Allan should have run as a Christian Patriot, instead of as a Republican in a state that thinks Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins are Republicans. As a black conservative, Allen stands no chance, unless God intervenes. But, why would or for that matter, should God intervene if you don't go to Him on bended knees and ask Him to intervene?
Just as in Illinois where there is the Pro-Christ, pro-life, Keyes running against a pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, Christ hater, so it is on the Presidential level. President Bush has demonstrated his Pro-Christ position by repeatedly announcing to the world that he is Born Again Christian and that his Christian faith helps him make decisions. The junior Senator from Massachusetts, John Foster Kerry is just the opposite. Kerry is 100% pro-infanticide, 100% pro-radical homosexual agenda, and 100% anti-Christ and gun. The pro-homosexual, pro-infanticide, anti-Christ Kerry has the support of the powerful and rich abortion industry, the main stream media and such organizations as the NEA and Hollywood actors guild. But, on the other hand, Pro-Christ, pro-family, pro-baby in the womb George Bush has, or should have, the Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb vote.
They say money is the mother's milk of politics. Well, if that is the case, think about this. Over the last four years, abortionists have slaughtered over ten million babies in the womb right here in the good ole US of A. At the minimum ten dollars per baby killed, that the abortion industry puts aside, like tithes, to the pro-infanticide candidate, that comes to one hundred million dollars. $100,000,000! Kerry got in cash and outside ads, $100,000,000 from the infanticide industry. If you took every Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian in the country, turned them upside down, shook them, and took all the money that fell out of their pockets, you couldn't come up with half that kind of money. But, we have something that the Kerry supporters of the world don't have, we have the ability to go to the Father in the name of the Son and ask for help. But, will we? Will we go to the Father and ask Him for four more pro-life years? will we even go and vote?
I don't know, I think so, but I don't know.
But what if God lets Allan Keyes and George Bush loose? What do we as Born Again washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians have to look forward to over the next four years.
1. An on purpose loss of the ban on partial birth abortion ban before the US Supreme Court by whoever Kerry names to replace God fearing pro-Life John Ashcroft.
2. The end of private ownership of guns in the US.
3. Homosexual marriages and the end of all laws outlawing or even restricting perverse sexual activities.
4. A disgraceful slaughter and surrender of our military in the war on terrorism.
5. And open persecution of Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians, by federal police agencies like the IRS, BATF, Dept. of Education, and of course our old friends in the FBI.
So, if God allows Kerry to win, where do we turn? How do we, as Pro-Christ, pro-life, pro-gun, Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians, not worry or go over the edge? Well, today we are in Luke chapter twelve and there is no finer chapter in the Bible to answer those questions. As you read, don't look for commentary, there is none to speak of, but, look to God for help in understanding, because if you do everything you can to support pro-Christ/pro-life candidates tomorrow and they loose, God through His Holy and infallible Word can and will help you, if you will let Him.
Luke Chapter Twelve
1 In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trod one upon another, Jesus began to say unto His disciples first of all,
Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. 2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. 3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.
4 And I say unto you My friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. 5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear Him, which after He hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear Him.
6 Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? 7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
8 Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess Me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God: 9 But he that denieth Me before men shall be denied before the angels of God. 10 And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven. Before you forget, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost are One. Therefore do not blaspheme any in the Trinity for when you blaspheme one you blaspheme all.
11 And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say: 12 For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.
13 And one of the company said unto Him, "Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me." 14 And Jesus said unto him, Man, who made Me a judge or a divider over you? 15 And He said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: 17 And he thought within himself, saying, 'What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?' 18 And he said, 'This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.' 19 And I will say to my soul, 'Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.' 20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? 21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
22 And He said unto His disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. 23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment. 24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? 25 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? 26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?
27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?
29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. 30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. 31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. 33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. 34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
35 Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning; 36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. 37 Blessed are those servants, whom the Lord when He cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that He shall gird Himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. 38 And if He shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.
39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through. 40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.
41 Then Peter said unto Him, "Lord, speakest Thou this parable unto us, or even to all?" 42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his Lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season? 43 Blessed is that servant, whom his Lord when He cometh shall find so doing. 44 Of a truth I say unto you, that He will make him ruler over all that He hath.
45 But and if that servant say in his heart, 'My Lord delayeth His coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; 46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for Him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. 47 And that servant, which knew his Lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to His will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled? 50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished! 51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: 52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. 53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
54 And He said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, 'There cometh a shower; and so it is.' 55 And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, 'There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.' 56 Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time? 57 Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?
58 When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison. 59 I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite. (Luke 12:1-59 ACP/KJV)
The bottom line is this, God is in control, fear God, not Kerry, not Clinton, not death, but fear separation from God, deny Kerry, get electrocuted, deny Christ, get eternal damnation. Absolutely go and vote, vote for Allan Keyes and President Bush. But, if Kerry wins, thank God, for regardless of what Kerry does, even if he appoints the two infamous Christ hating infanticide loving, Hillary Clinton and Olympia Snowe to the US Supreme court. Even if he appoints Comrade impeached and disgraced William Jefferson Blythe Clinton to the UN, even if he sues every federal secret police agency to attack, kill, torture and dismember us, for remember this:
When satan wants to do something, he still has to go before God and get God's permission.
And the LORD said unto satan, Hast thou considered My servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?
And the LORD said unto satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So satan went forth from the presence of the LORD. (Job 1:8-12 ACP/KJV)
You and I as Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians who can vote and be involved in US politics, should do everything we can to keep evil from winning, but we must also understand that after we have done all we can, not all we want to, but all that we can, then it is in God's hands and His will, will be done! His words and His Word, will get us through regardless.
Jesus give us peace, help us to serve and obey You, help us to understand that this is not our Home, that our Home is with You. Oh, and one other thing Lord, oh how we would love to see the forces of evil and his candidates destroyed in the election tomorrow.
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.
