Are you overwhelmed? Or is it just us who...?

Friday December 2nd, 2005
First, I have a special prayer request for you guys. I would really appreciate it if you would take a minute and thank God for Steve Burzlaff and his family, second I would like you to ask the Lord to continue to bless, protect and keep Steve and his family safe. I'm not going to elaborate, I'm simply going to ask you to pray for Steve, Janice and their family.

Notice the title? "Are you overwhelmed? Or is it just us who are involved in the fight?" I don't know of one active participating Christian who is not under attack by the forces of evil. The forces of evil both in the human body and the spirit world. If you're not under attack it is probably due to one of the two reasons below.

Either God is protecting you and keeping you in reserve for a future battle. Or it is because the forces of evil do not see you as either a threat or even a participant.

So, if you are under attack, or if you not under attack but you are an active participating combatant in this battle between Good and evil, then theses words in Psalm 19 will help you.

If you are sitting on the side lines watching the war, not involved, not willing to shed a drop of sweat or blood, and as such, not considered a worry by satan, then there is nothing I can say to you. And to be honest there isn't much civil I want to say to you. Go back to freerepublic.com and help JimRob and the boys drive off more Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians. Join me in praying for the salvation of Jim Robinson, but do not e-mail me defending him. For as Alexander the coppersmith did to Paul, so has Jim Robinson and his website done to me.

Psalm Nineteen

1 {To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.}

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth His handywork.

2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor language, where their(creation) voice is not heard. 4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath He set a tabernacle for the sun, 5 which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

6 His(the sun) going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart:

The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever:

The judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

10 More to be desired are they(verses 7-9) than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 11 Moreover by them is Thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

12 Who can understand his(the servant of the Lord) errors?

Cleanse Thou me from secret faults. 13 Keep back Thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them(secret sins) not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in Thy sight, O LORD, my Strength, and my Redeemer. (Psalm 19:1-14 ACP/KJV)

David wrote Psalm 19 when he was in distress, a time when he must have felt overwhelmed. Many of us feel that way today. A 14 year old girl can have an abortion without her parents being notified, yet the school nurse can't give her an aspirin if she has a headache without first getting permission form her parents. And at least four members of the US Supreme court can't seem to figure that out. A 14 year old boy in Maine kills a 14 year old girl neighbor and what do the chat lines, the Portland Press Herald and others on the left focus on? The boy was supposedly being home schooled. Since the vast majority of kids being home schooled are being Christian home schooled, this is suppose to be a derogatory reflection on Christ, Christians and home school families.

I can only wonder what David would have wrote if he lived in a time and place that rewards homosexuality and attacks those who fear God? And while satan, his minions, and his ilk attack the forces of Good, the forces dedicated to being the foot solders, the grunts of Christ, we have solace in two things. First we have the word of God to rely and rest upon. Second we know that the Word of God wins in the end, He with us by His side cleans the clocks of the forces of evil.

When I find myself getting disgusted with the news, the newscasters, the media as a whole, the politicians, courts, cops, and the rest of the forces of evil, there are two verses in the Bible that put a smile on my face.

Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. I have sworn by Myself, the word is gone out of My mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto Me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. (Isaiah 45:22&23 ACP/KJV) You may be more familiar with it written in Philippians: That at the name of Jesus every knee should(must and will) bow, of(all) things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should (must and will) confess that Christ Jesus is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:10&11 ACP/KJV) OK, I know that is four verses, cut me some slack will ya, picky, picky, picky.

And this: And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: (Hebrews 9:27 ACP/KJV)

So, while at times, I do indeed feel overwhelmed, the Word of God, Christ Jesus and His declaration, the Holy Bible, give me comfort, peace and the knowledge and understanding that in the end, the unsaved, along with their little tin, pond scum sucking, god, the devil will loose. That we who are property of the Christ, we who are not afraid to declare that Christ is God that Jesus is Lord, God, Creator, win and will share paradise with Him for ever and ever amen.

Lord thank You for the peace You give us. Thank You for the reassurance that You are to us, thank You for shedding Your Blood for us. And Lord God Creator, I too beseech you that You would bless, protect, comfort and give strength to Steve, Janice and family. Thank You Jesus, for it is in Your name Lord that I pray to God the Father through the Holy Spirit that dwelleth within me. 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.
