Last Wednesday we looked at how we allowed the homosexuals and their flunkies in the body politic, the press and the liberal Christ denying pulpit to force us to go to the Lord in defeat. Last Wednesday we focused on how we lost it within the very Christian community that we should have carried by 100%. Today we will look at how we lost it in the hearts and minds of the heathen.
This is the law as it was passed by the radical, satan serving, Christ denying Baldacci/Hastings political consortium and their devil serving allies:
This is the actual law the way it is written. LD-1196
An Act To Extend Civil Rights Protections to All People Regardless of Sexual Orientation...
Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:
Sec. 1. 5 MRSA §§4552, as amended by PL 1993, c. 327, §§1, is further amended to read:
To protect the public health, safety and welfare, it is declared to be the policy of this State to keep continually in review all practices infringing on the basic human right to a life with dignity, and the causes of these practices, so that corrective measures may, where possible, be promptly recommended and implemented, and to prevent discrimination in employment, housing or access to public accommodations on account of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, religion, ancestry or national origin; and in employment, discrimination on account of age or because of the previous assertion of a claim or right under former Title 39 or Title 39-A and in housing because of familial status; and to prevent discrimination in the extension of credit on account of age, race, color, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, ancestry or national origin; and to prevent discrimination in education on account of sex, sexual orientation or physical or mental disability.
Sec. 3. 5 MRSA §§4553, sub-§§9-C is enacted to read:
9-C.__Sexual orientation.__"Sexual orientation" means a person's actual or perceived heterosexuality, bisexuality, homosexuality or gender identity or expression.
Now, do you see anything about marriage in that law? No, absolutely nothing, but what did we focus on? Marriage, the marriage between two people of the same sex, two, three or more people of perceived sexes, etc. Where we went wrong was we let the radical homosexuals and their flunkies in the body politic led by the infamous Baldacci/Hastings consortium define the fight and set the perimeters.
Look, I hate to tell you this folks, but Marriage is not a big issue to anyone outside of the true Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian community. Do you think the heathens really have any care for the sanctity of marriage? Do you think they see anything special about being married? And marriage is not mentioned or even implied in the law. Had we focused on the law itself, asking questions like: What in the world does "a person's actual or perceived heterosexuality, bisexuality, homosexuality or gender identity or expression" mean?
Does it mean that if your 12 year old daughter is in a public dressing room that some 50 year old guy can walk in on her because he perceives himself to be a woman?
Governor Baldacci and his pet Republican, the infamous David R. Hastings the 3rd, (R) Fryeburg, Maine claim that this law will end all of our financial troubles in Maine. That it will open Maine up to tourism as it has never before been opened up. Well, we should have focused on the law and asked men and women: "Would you take your family to a state where someone who perceives themselves to be of a sex other than what they are can walk into that sex's bathroom and stare at your son or daughter?"
We should have focused on the law as it is written and asked businessmen how they are going to know what a person's perceived sexuality is? Asked them how they are going to defend themselves against lawsuits stemming from their having offended a person's perceived sexuality by telling them they had to use the dressing room or bathroom of their apparent sex? How they are going to defend themselves from the lawsuits that will arise if they allow men into the girls' dressing room and women into the boys' bathroom?
Jesus has instructed us : Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. (Matthew 10:16 ACP/KJV)
We in the State of Maine allowed the forces of evil to set the boundaries for the fight, set the terminology, and as a result they won. They won because while we were gentle as doves we were also numb as rocks. We allowed the sodomites and their flunkies to rule the day, not because they fought a better fight, they didn't. They simply fought smarter and they trusted in their god, the devil while we tried to just outsmart them instead of trusting on Our God, Christ Jesus. We followed the lead of men and women who were not saved. We used the term gay instead of homosexual. We let them get away with making us look stupid and as they stayed with their lie of "This law simply eliminates some discrimination" and their theme of "Maine won't discriminate," we floundered around alike a fish out of water or a chicken with its head cut off.
Had we simply stayed with God's word and God's truth, we would have won if that was God's desire, but for us to ignore the Lord and go fight His fight on our own was plain, downright dumb.
You in other states should learn from our mistakes, for trust me, the homosexuals and their god are not going to happy with just New England and New York, they are going to want the rest of the country and world as well.
Luke Chapter Ten
1 After these things the Lord appointed another seventy also, and sent them two and two before His face into every city and place, whither He Himself would come.
2 Therefore said He unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He would send forth labourers into His harvest. 3 Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves. 4 Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.
5 And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, 'Peace be to this house.' 6 And if the Son of Peace(the Holy Spirit) be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again. 7 And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.
8 And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you: 9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, 'The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.' 10 But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say, 11 'even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.'
12 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city. 13 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. 14 But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you. 15 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell.
16 He that heareth you heareth Me; and he that despiseth you despiseth Me; and he that despiseth Me despiseth Him that sent Me. (Luke 10:1-16 ACP/KJV)
Guys, in Luke 10:1-16 we see the Lord sending out men two by two to fight evil and prepare the way for His coming. We see the Lord telling them that it will better for the inhabitants of Sodom than for those who have had miracles done around them and are still ignoring the Lord. Well what do you think it is going to be like for those in the USA who ignore Christ? All they had back 1,973 years ago were rumors of miracles being done, oh yes, some saw them but for the most part they only heard about them. But what about Maine in the year 2005? Anyone and everyone that wants one can have a Bible. They can read it and visualize the very nature and personality of God. They can read the very words of the Lord God Almighty, so how are those in our nation going to face Jesus on the day of judgement?
We in Maine had a wonderful opportunity to face down satan's lackeys and saturate the press and the minds of the people of this state with the very Word of God, but we didn't. Instead we focused on the perceived problems of having two sodomite men get married or the possible legalization down the road somewhere of two lesbians getting married. We blew it. We should be ashamed, we had best hang our collective heads in shame and beseech the Lord God's forgiveness for we sure let Him down.
Lord Jesus, please forgive us, for we sure let You down. How sad You must be to see so many of us fall into the same trap that satan has used over the last 6,417 years in beguiling and faking out Your arrogant stiff-necked, too proud to turn to and rely on You, people. Please forgive us Lord and give us another chance to reach the lost in Maine. Amen.
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.
