If you husbands will love your wife as Christ loves the Church, you won't need to raise your voice or hit her, for she will love you so much that she will revere you.

What are you giving Jesus for His Birthday?
Gideon started with just about 32,300 males, he ended up with 300 men.
What if, just what if, on your birthday, instead of sending you a card, buying you a gift, calling you or anything, many whom you loved, men, women and children whom you would die for, sent gifts, cards and calls, instead of to you, sent them to those who hate you?
What if, instead of going to your friend's and loved one's stores to buy gifts, cards and goodies, they went to places that hate you so much that they prohibit their employees from even mentioning your name?
Well, many of you are like that with Jesus. There are stores out there that hate Christ so much, they actually prohibit even the mention of His name. Yet, Christians spend literally billions of dollars in those stores. What are they buying? In part, junk made in countries that so despise the word of God that they put Christians in prison and kill them simply for being Christians, yet, many of you will buy goods from those Christ hating stores and countries.
In Indonesia three Christians girls were beheaded, two more were shot and killed. Why? Because they were Christians. In China, Christians are hunted down and killed on a regular basis. In France, England, Germany, Italy and Greece, Born Again Christians are persecuted and never given good jobs. In Egypt, the Sudan, and Israel Born Again Christians are persecuted. In Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and other nations who receive tons of our foreign aid and military protection, Christians can not openly practice the worship of Christ Jesus.
Yet, those countries and the stores that sell for them in the USA are getting rich off of the money spent by so called Christians for CHRISTmas gifts. Gifts to everyone but Jesus.
How many of you are giving this year to those you know to be non Christians? Are you giving them something to remind them of Christ? Or are you giving them something that is of satan? Are you giving them game boys, video games, harry potter books, skimpy clothing, gift cards for places where they will buy things of satan?
Or are you giving them Bibles, Christian books, things that are designed to lead them to the Lord God of Creation, Christ Jesus.
Jesus has said: Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. (Matthew 7:12-14 ACP/KJV)
Are you confused? Are you trying to figure out what all this has to do with Gideon and gifts for Jesus?
Then Jerubbaal, who is Gideon, and all the people that were with him, rose up early, and pitched beside the well of Harod: so that the host of the Midianites were on the north side of them, by the hill of Moreh, in the valley.
And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people that are with thee are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel vaunt themselves against Me, saying, 'mine own hand hath saved me.' Now therefore go to, proclaim in the ears of the people, saying, 'Whosoever is fearful and afraid, let him return and depart early from mount Gilead.' And there returned of the people twenty and two thousand; and there remained ten thousand.
And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people are yet too many; bring them down unto the water, and I will try them for thee there: and it shall be, that of whom I say unto thee, This shall go with thee, the same shall go with thee; and of whomsoever I say unto thee, This shall not go with thee, the same shall not go.
So he brought down the people unto the water: and the LORD said unto Gideon, Every one that lappeth of the water with his tongue, as a dog lappeth, him shalt thou set by himself; likewise every one that boweth down upon his knees to drink.
And the number of them that lapped, putting their hand to their mouth, were three hundred men: but all the rest of the people bowed down upon their knees to drink water.
And the LORD said unto Gideon, By the three hundred men that lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into thine hand: and let all the other people go every man unto his place. (Judges 7:1-7 ACP/KJV)
Gideon stared with 32,300 males. God found, out of that 32,300 males, 300 Israeli men.
I'm starting to think Jesus is doing much the same with those who come to ChristianPatriot.com.
But, anyhow, what has all this got to do with CHRISTmas gifts for Jesus? Most of the so called Christians in the country when buying gifts for their unsaved freinds, relatives and kin, are going to buy those gifts from heathen stores, stores that both deny and hate our Lord and Savior. Those gifts are not going to lead them to the Lord, but isntead keep them enslaved to satan. A few, a very few are not. They are going to buy gifts that will, along with prayer, lead the unsaved to Christ.
Which group are you going to fall into? Are you going to be part of the 32,000 that God sent packing or are you going to be part of the 300 that God sent with Gideon to clean the clocks of the heathens?
Are you going to the Christ hating stores to shop or are you going to your local Christian Book Store? Are you going to give young ones Dr. Seuss books that say 'millions and millions of years ago..." Or are you going to go to anwersingenesis.com and/or drdino.com and buy books for children that tell the truth of Creation?
Are you going to be part of the 32,000 who are going to fund satan or are you going to be part of the 300 that will donate to a missionary, buy tracts, buy Christian literature, make a donation to a Christian radio group in the name of someone on your gift list? Let me tell you, I would rather get a small card from a Christian organization or Book store than a large card bought from Target or Hannaford Brothers made in Indonesia, China or France, or God forbid a gift certificate from Homo Depot
Remember what Jesus said: "for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it".
There is an old saying that goes like this: "Don't throw the baby out with the bath water."
Don't help a non-Christian teenage girl look more like a tramp, don't give her a gift certificate to Macy's, Target or one of the other high style stores, give her a copy of the Bible, give her a video from a Creation Ministry, give her a book about missionaries. Don't give that teen age boy a satan trap, don't give him a harry potter book or a video game, give him a one year subscription to a Christian sports magazine, give him a book by Reggie White or one of the fine adventure books out about missionaries.
Whatever you do, don't give your pastor and his wife a gift certificate to one of the primary underwriters of the satan agenda, like Hannaford Brothers food stores Or Homo Depot, instead give them a video series from Dr. Kent Hovind or Mr. Ken Ham. As for any of you who wish to send something to us here at ChristianPatriot.com., please, please, please money only, I know our needs.
My guess is that about 300 of you are active fighters in the war against evil, but, my prayer is that the rest of you will get off your backsides and remember, if you reward bad behavior you can only expect more bad behavior. Homo Depot should already be bankrupt, but because of Christians they are still in business.
We are in a war folks, if you can't shoot, carry bullets, if you can't carry bullets, make band-aids, if you can't do that, pray for someone who will. But, get off your butts and do something.
May our Lord and Savior, the Lord Jesus, please, for this CHRISTmas, bless the 300 and wake up the 32,000. Thank You Jesus, Amen.
Sometime in the not too distant future I want to talk to you men in the Militias, about Luke 20:25 and Matthew 24:24.
Lord, make my faith as that which I perceive the Samaritans to have had. Amen.
As you ponder today's Scripture, ponder also your own relationship with Christ. Are you a Samaritan or are you a Galilean?
Lord give us eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart attuned to Your word.
Men, let us strive to be men who follow Christ, and pray our wives will, as Peter's and Abraham's wives did, simply follow.
Nai erchomai Kurios Iesous.

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 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.
