Thank God for Steve,
As I travel and talk to other Pastors, Christians and non Christians, the truth of what Jesus said to Daniel some 2,570 years ago, becomes more and more clear, evident, and obvious. 9. And The Lord said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. 10. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; 10b. but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. (Daniel 12:9&10 ACP/KJV)
More and more Christians are turning away from polluted foods, vaccines and the two political parties, yet more and more the unsaved buy fast foods, run and fight over who can be first getting vaccines and inoculations, and blindly follow one of the two major political parties and their spin offs. "but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand."
With the advent of the internet, the excuse of "I didn't know it could hurt my child" just doesn't hold water any longer. To feed your family anything with canola oil or margarine in it is plain stupid, yet spend an hour or two in a health food store and ask those who buy canola oil if they are saved or not and you'll rapidly see the truth of "but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand." Canola oil is poison, your dog won't eat margarine and your cat will not eat tuna fish with canola oil.
Do an ask.com search with "how bad is canola oil?" in the search box and the third hit down starts with this:
*It is genetically engineered rapeseed.
*Canada paid the FDA the sum of $50 million to have rape seed registered and recognized as "safe". (Source: Young Again and others)
*Rapeseed is a lubricating oil used by small industry. It has never been meant for human consumption.
*It is derived from the mustard family and is considered a toxic and poisonous weed, which when processed, becomes rancid very quickly.
*It has been shown to cause lung cancer (Wall Street Journal: 6/7/95)
*It is very inexpensive to grow and harvest. Insects won't eat it.
*Some typical and possible side effects include loss of vision, disruption of the central nervous system, respiratory illness, anemia, constipation, increased incidence of heart disease and cancer, low birth weights in infants and irritability.
*Generally rapeseed has a cumulative effect, taking almost 10 years before symptoms begin to manifest. It has a tendency to inhibit proper metabolism of foods and prohibits normal enzyme function. Canola is a Trans Fatty Acid, which has shown to have a direct link to cancer. These Trans Fatty acids are labeled as hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils. Avoid all of them!
*According to John Thomas' book, Young Again, 12 years ago in England and Europe, rape seed was fed to cows, pigs and sheep who later went blind and began attacking people. There were no further attacks after the rape seed was eliminated from their diet.
*Source: David Dancu, N.D.
The unsaved read that and ignore it, the Saved read it and start throwing the poison out if they have it in the house and refuse to buy anymore of it. Are all the negative things said about canola oil on the web true? I don't know, but this I do know, my cat wouldn't eat tuna that had canola as the oil in it.
To see how true Jesus' statement: "but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand" is, when it comes to Vaccines, you need go no further than to the AsMaineGoes.com link at the end of this paragraph. AMG is a secular site with the vast majority coming from a position of hostility towards Bible Believing Christians. As you follow the thread, you will see not only blindness concerning vaccines, but also the hostility towards husbands/fathers. Let me give you just one quote: "Yeah, just like Jesus protected all the kids from polio?
Or how Jesus protected all the kids from scarlet fever or rubella, or mumps."AMG
Now let us get to politics, the one that most certainly shows the truth of Jesus' profession to Daniel; "but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand."
In 1973 the USSJC declared babies in the womb non human and made it legal to kill them. Since that time, in the USA alone, over 100 million babies have been slaughtered, offered up to molech as little human blood sacrifices. Every administration, both democrat and republican has supported a woman's right to murder the baby in her womb.
Non-Christians look at the word and come up with foolish reasons why the nation is in such trouble. They will blame HARP for the weather, political parties and each other for the hostility in the world. They blame Christians for being so blind and stupid for relying upon abstinence instead of pills, condoms and abortion to keep down the number of illegitimate babies brought into the world.
I do not believe that we in the USA, or for that matter the entire world, are seeing, as many claim, God's wrath. What I think we are starting to see here in the USA is God lifting His hand of protection from us. There is only one group on earth that can reverse that, the Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian community. It is time for Christian men to get off their duffs and get involved. We need to not only turn to prayer, we have to get out there and start evangelizing. We need to start fighting for the Agenda of Christ and against the agenda of satan because the society we are leaving to my granddaughter is corrupt, filthy and perverted, It is a society that knows not the truth, and could care less about Truth, Justice and Freedom.
Politicians, lie, cheat, steal, rape underage children and get standing ovations, and I am not taking about Mark Foley, I am talking about Gerry Studds. Clinton lied, committed treason, raped and ordered murders, yet he is not only walking free, he is honored by the current president and his father. Jack Kavorkain killed no less than 113 people yet he is about to get out on parole after less than ten years in prison, because his murders were politically correct acts of euthanasia. The abortionist is protected by law and the full force of the police, yet the father that doesn't want his 6 year old being taught that homosexuality is good and right, ends up in jail.
Gentlemen, this nation and its way of life are in your hands. If you choose to continue to sit on them, well, so be it. But, like me, you too will one day face Jesus and get your reward.
You can get out there and challenge me for one of these two precious seats still up for grabs mentioned in the following passage:
Then came to Jesus the mother of Zebedee's children with her sons, worshipping Him, and desiring a certain thing of Him. And He said unto her, What wilt thou?
She saith unto Him, "Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on Thy right hand, and the other on the left, in Thy kingdom." But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, "We are able."
And He saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of My cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on My right hand, and on My left, is not Mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is chosen by My Father.
And when the other ten Apostles heard it, they were moved with indignation against the two brethren. (Taken from Matthew 20:20-24 ACP/KJV)
Guys, I want one of those two seats, I really want one of them. And as long as you sit around and do little or nothing, you are no competition to me for them. There will be rulers in heaven and their will be those who muck out the stables of Christ Jesus in heaven. But understand this, being a horse fly in the stables of the Lord is about one zillion times to the zillionth power better than being the CEO of hell, but as for me, well I want to be one of the rulers.
Yes, being meek is good, and I consider myself both meek and a servant. But, I have read and understand that the rewards in heaven are determined by our actions here on earth. God is no respecter of positions here on earth, He is a respecter of what we do for Him here on earth. If every man who reads this thought gets out there with one and only one thought in mind, doing more for the Lord than me so that they can compete with me for one of those two cherished seats, revival will come and the Lord may once again place His hand of protection over the United States of America. Wouldn't it be nice to not have to recruit girls to go fight our wars, protect our streets and put out our house and building fires? Wouldn't it be nice for the Lord to remove from the men of this nation the sense of fear and cowardice that now prevails?
I have heard, on good authority, that one more 911 type attack on the US would give the administration all they need to eliminate the borders between the US, Canada, and Mexico and merge the three nations together. WordNetDaily broke a story about the real possibility that the US Military will start recruiting from outside our country. Why? Because there are not enough men willing to fight for this nation even with the huge pay checks they receive. According to the CIA, the population of the USA, not including illegal aliens, which add another 10-30 million, is 298,444,215. Yet our Military needs are well under 6 million. We can't find 6 million out of 300 million, one out of every 50 to fight to protect this nation. Even with money like this: a brand new enlistee, pay grade E-1 gets over $1,200 a month plus food, clothing, health care and housing.
I'm going to close with some Scripture out of Deuteronomy Chapter 32, and if you want to understand what has happened to courage in this country, the answer is here. But read it carefully for in it you will see what is going to happen to this country unless Christian men get up off their duffs and start to get active.
But *Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation(Jesus). They provoked Him(Jesus) to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they Him(Jesus) to anger.
They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; but to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not. And Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten The God that formed thee.
And when the LORD saw it, He abhorred them, because of the provoking of his(Jeshurun's) sons, and of his(Jeshurun's) daughters.
And He said, I will hide My face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith. They have moved Me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked Me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.
For a fire is kindled in Mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains. I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend Mine arrows upon them. They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.
The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs.
I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men: Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should say, "Our hand is high, and the LORD hath not done all this." For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them.
O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end! How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up? For their rock(false gods) is not as our Rock(Christ), even our enemies themselves being judges.
For their vine(the path they have followed) is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes(fruits and rewards) are grapes of gall, their clusters(entire society and social customs) are bitter: Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps.
Is not this laid up in store with Me, and sealed up among My treasures?
To me belongeth vengeance, and recompense; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste. For the LORD shall judge His people, and repent Himself for His servants, when He seeth that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left. And Jesus shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted, (Deuteronomy 32:15-37a ACP/KJV 1st draft) *Jeshurun, think of it as USA.
No, we have not seen God's wrath yet, but we are most certainly at the point where He has withdrawn His protective hand. We are afraid of our own shadows. A bunch of two bit gang members that the press calls an army (the terrorists) has gotten us so afraid that the administration and the new Congress want to negotiate with them instead of simply ordering an unlimited all out win effort by our military.
We are such a bunch of unmanly men that we have to send our daughters out onto the streets, dressed in blue, to protect us against robbers, thieves, drunks, drug dealers and rapists. We are so terrified by a few that we want to reward those who broke into our country illegally with amnesty, citizenship, welfare and social security checks.
Is it any wonder the birth rate is down in the USA? How can men with no gonads possibly father or protect children. For heaven sakes if you can't do anything else, go to Christianpatriot.com/what.pdf print out a dozen or so and just leave them in men's rooms. Do something for the sake of Jesus, our nation, our children, and grandchildren. Some of you need to sit down and read the little note left by James, the half brother of Jesus. I know Christians who are in jail for their faith and their work, while you sit around and play house with the Clintons and Bushs of the world.
So many of you remind me of this farmer: The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: And he thought within himself, saying, "What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?"
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. 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.'"
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?
So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
Where are your riches? Do you think that rich farmer has his name written in the Book of Life? So, what makes you, oh lazy slothful one, think your name is in the Book of Life? When you take your last breath here on earth, you are going to hear these words: Why should I let you into my heaven? What did you ever do on earth for Me?
This very day another baby is going to die or become permanently disabled because his or her parents took that little baby to some satan worshiping baby murderer with an MD after his or her name and let them inject that baby with chemicals foreign to his or her body. Those parents are blind. Their only hope of being able to see comes from their being saved. And you sit there shaking you head and not raising a finger to help those parents find Christ and salvation. Shame on you! For you are just as guilty of the death or injury of that child as are the parents, the doctor, the government, and all involved in the vaccine industry.
Well, I hope you all had plenty to eat and got plenty of gifts for CHRISTmas, for isn't that what it's all about? Small "g" god forbid you should use some of your wealth to reach the world for Christ.
There are but two agendas to follow here on earth, the agenda of Christ, "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature" and the agenda of satan, "sit there, shake your head, and wonder why someone doesn't do something."
Where is your treasure laid up? Are you wicked or wise? "but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand." Wise towards the word of God and not the word of man?
To my fellow preachers, let me add this word of hope. I know how discouraged you get at times. I know how you look out at the blank faces and ask yourself, "What am I doing, why am I even here, doesn't anyone care?" GOD knows, JESUS cares, hang in there.
Lord help us to stay faithful to You and Your word. And Jesus, thank You for those who make this ministry possible and the growth we had last year. 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.
