The forces of evil have won one more skirmish, not the war, but an important skirmish.

Wednesday November 9th, 2005
Yesterday Maine reinstated a law that gives the forces of evil a huge victory. Oh yes, Christ wins in the end, but yesterday, due in part to the inactivity of Christians, satan won a big one.

There are but two world views, the world view that Christ created the entire universe in six days and as such owns it and all things created, including us and the satanistic world view of evolution. In the Christian world view we have the Bible, the Word of God to guide us.

God, the Lord Christ Jesus, tells us very clearly that homosexuality is an abominable practice. That is to be discouraged, condemned, shunned and for those caught practicing it, severely punished. The satanistic world view says just the opposite. It embraces homosexuality, protects homosexuals, encourages the practice of homosexuality and puts those who will brag about being a homosexual on a pedestal with enhanced protections. Why does satan so love homosexuals? Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women... (Daniel 11:37a ACP/KJV) Satan loves homosexuals for two reasons: one, he loves what God despises and two, because his flunky anti-Christ of the time of tribulation is one.

Yesterday in Maine, Governor John Baldacci, State Senator David R. Hastings 3rd (R) Fryeburg, and their supporters defeated the forces of Christ by getting enough Christians to stay home and enough supporters of satan's world view to go to the polls and vote. Maine now has a law that encourages, protects, supports and places on a pedestal homosexuals and others who practice deviant sexual behavior. But let us not cry over spilled milk, for we lost, we who Christ has entrusted to fight for Him, let Him down and allowed His creations to undermine Him and His word. We should be ashamed.

Now this is important. The forces of evil are not going to stop with Maine and New England. They are fresh with the blood of victory in their snouts, and going to look at your state next, if they have not already.

First let's look at the long train of losses we, who Christ has entrusted to stand firm for Him, in Maine, have suffered at the hands of those who serve darkness. We have legal tax payer funded abortion through the ninth month(blood sacrifices to satan), we have laws protecting deviant sexual behavior even to the point of protecting a person's 'perceived sexuality,' whatever that means. We have no law forbidding the practice of sexual relations between human and beast. Nor do we have a law prohibiting the intentional lying and deceiving of school children.

How did we lose so many fights, so many huge skirmishes in the battle of Good verses evil, Christ verses satan? Well guys this is where you can learn from our mistakes, this is where you can learn to fight the skirmishes to win instead of just to say we "fought the good fight."

Now read this carefully and get your Pastor to read it too, for until we learn the lessons of history from the world's greatest history book, the Holy Bible, we are destined to make the same mistakes over and over again.

But the children of Israel committed a trespass in the accursed thing: for Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took of the accursed thing: and the anger of the LORD was kindled against the children of Israel.

And Joshua sent men from Jericho to Ai, which is beside Bethaven, on the east side of Bethel, and spake unto them, saying, "Go up and view the country." And the men went up and viewed Ai. And they returned to Joshua, and said unto him, "Let not all the people go up; but let about two or three thousand men go up and smite Ai; and make not all the people to labor thither; for they are but few."

So there went up thither of the people about three thousand men: and they fled before the men of Ai. And the men of Ai smote (killed) of them about thirty and six men: for they chased them from before the gate even unto Shebarim, and smote them in the going down: wherefore the hearts of the people melted, and became as water.

And Joshua rent his clothes, and fell to the earth upon his face before the ark of the LORD until the eventide, he and the elders of Israel, and put dust upon their heads. And Joshua said, "Alas, O Lord GOD, wherefore hast Thou at all brought this people over Jordan, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us? would to God we had been content, and dwelt on the other side Jordan! O Lord, what shall I say, when Israel turneth their backs before their enemies! For the Canaanites and all the inhabitants of the land shall hear of it, and shall environ us round, and cut off our name from the earth: and what wilt Thou do unto Thy great name?"

And the LORD said unto Joshua, Get thee up; wherefore liest thou thus upon thy face? Israel hath sinned, and they have also transgressed My covenant which I commanded them: for they have even taken of the accursed thing, and have also stolen, and dissembled also, and they have put it even among their own stuff. Therefore the children of Israel could not stand before their enemies, but turned their backs before their enemies, because they were accursed: neither will I be with you any more, except ye destroy the accursed from among you. Get up, sanctify the people, and say, 'Sanctify yourselves against to morrow: for thus saith the LORD God of Israel, There is an accursed thing in the midst of thee, O Israel: thou canst not stand before thine enemies, until ye take away the accursed thing from among you.' (Joshua 7:1-13 ACP/KJV)

Now let me draw a parallel between what happened to Joshua's troops then and what happened to Christ troops here in Maine.

Learn guys, don't make the same mistake we made, learn from this, copy it get it to your Pastor to read, study and prevail, or do as we did and fail miserably.

We in Maine have evil amongst us. It is the liberal Christ denying satan serving clergy of most of the churches in the state. And we, the few who do preach Christ and His world view, were silent against them. We fought this fight not using the weapons of God, but rather we fought it on the terms and terminology of the forces of evil.

UCC preacher after UCC preacher joined Episcopalian, Universalist, Methodist and others in denouncing us who opposed this law promoting homosexuality, as bigots and hate mongers and they did it as members of the Christian clergy and we were silent. We should have, now get this, we should have fought them with Scripture, not in a mode of defensiveness, but in an attack mode.

When they came out as members of the clergy saying, "God is the God of love, He loves homosexuals and does not want us to discriminate." We should have said: "The Lord God of Creation, Christ Jesus has denounced the practice of homosexuality as an abomination punishable with a severe penalty. God has made it very clear that Christians are not to support, encourage or condone homosexual behavior. Those who, under the guise of being a minster, must confess just who it is that they serve. For it is not Christ that supports and wants laws passed promoting homosexuality, it is the devil."

We should have gone on and quoted Scripture and demanded that the liberals tell the truth about whom they serve. In other words we should not have allowed the satan worshipers to continue to mislead Christians with their titles, black collars, and twisted lies concerning Scripture.

We should have made it very clear that this law is not of God but of satan. That it is not a law to eliminate discrimination, it is a law to make legal, promote, encourage and reward the abominable practice of homosexuality. It is not a law promoting good, it is a law furthering the agenda of the devil and evil.

Had we faced down the evil, confronted it and driven it from our tents, we would have had The Lord on our side, He would have fought for us and He would have won. But because we polluted our ranks with liberals, liberal lies, liberal terminology, and were afraid to confront publicly the so called clergy that was promoting this evil, we were on our own and we got our clocks cleaned. But worse yet, we, because of our Biblical ignorance, our cowardice, our fear, and our pride, caused the victory to go to the devil and his evil forces. And Maine now has the worst, most deviant, pro-abnormal sexual behavior law in the country, maybe the world. For only in Maine do we protect, by state law perceived sexual identity.

I for one will no longer let those who use the Word of God or under the guise of "Christian minster" get away with using title or lies to promote satan's agenda. I for one am from here on out going to out phony satan serving Christ hating so called Christian ministers. From here on out, those who lie about being a Christian minister are going to get publicly challenged.

May the Lord God of Creation forgive us, for we sure let Him down. And may Christians in other states and countries not make the mistakes we here in Maine made, but instead let them learn from our mistakes and fight the evil within before trying to take on the evil without.

In closing let me make something very clear. There were many Christian ministers, true men of God who did fight this skirmish from their pulpits, by attacking the evil of this law and by denouncing it as a law promoting deviant abnormal, abominable homosexual behavior. There were just not enough of them. And many of them, including me, started too late. Lord forgive us.

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.
