Washington, a den of liars, hypocrites and vipers!

First we need to look at something, we need to look at the Greek word nomikos. Nomikos is the Greek word translated to mean lawyers in the New Testament. And that in deed is what it translates into, but just what was a lawyer back when God walked the earth in the body of a man named Jesus. Lawyer didn't just mean a man or woman who represented you in court or one who drew up wills and the such, no, it meant maker of the laws, interpreter of the laws. So, who would the lawyers of 2000 years ago been? The Scribes, the Pharisees, the Sadducees, the ... Sanhedrin.

Who would Jesus be referring to in today's society? The congress, the administration, the cop on the beat and the judge dressed in black. The president, his minions and his ilk, those in the oxymoron department, better known as the Justice department, the fbi, ss, batf etc. They would be todays 'lawyers'. Not all, for there are some listed above who are honest and God fearing, but not many.

Now, read what the Lord has to say about them.

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous, and say, 'If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.' Therefore you are witnesses against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers' guilt.

Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell?
Matthew 22:29-33

Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.

"Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit. Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.

A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned."
Matthew 12:32-37

But woe to you Pharisees! For you tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass by justice and the love of God. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone. Woe to you Pharisees! For you love the best seats in the synagogues and greetings in the marketplaces. Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like graves which are not seen, and the men who walk over them are not aware of them."

Then one of the lawyers answered and said to Him, "Teacher, by saying these things You reproach us also."

And Jesus said, "Woe to you also, lawyers! For you load men with burdens hard to bear, and you yourselves do not touch the burdens with one of your fingers. Woe to you! For you build the tombs of the prophets, and your fathers killed them. In fact, you bear witness that you approve the deeds of your fathers; for they indeed killed them, and you build their tombs.
Luke 11:42-48

Now take a moment to think about todays government in these United States. Does not congress make laws for us but make themselves exempt? Is it not a criminal offense for you or I to lie in court, commit rape, sell secrets to the enemy? Yet did not the Senate of these very same United States say that it was all right for the president to do these things? Did not those in communist China steal secrets, bribe politicians and threaten us with nuclear war? Do they not round up Christians whose only crime is to believe on the Lord Jesus, the Christ, and hold them as prisoners till they have a buyer for the body parts of those prisoners and then kill them and harvest the parts for sale? Does not China persecute Christians, force the abortion of all babies beyond the second in any plain persons home? Yet did not this congress just reward these same communist with permanent most favored trade status?

When was the last time you saw the relative of a police officer in court for speeding? How oft do you see kin of a judge in court for stealing, shoplifting or anything else? A member of the bar in Portland Maine left his infant daughter in his car for hours on end, the baby was discovered in a comma, is that member of the bar in jail? You or I would be, but not him, for he is a member of the ruling elite. The chief of police in Portland said "I don't care about his constitutional rights" regarding a man who was legally carring a legal gun, after his arrest, the chief refused to return the gun, yet the district attorney has, even after more than eight years refused to charge this criminal with a badge with anything. That same chief used the girls and women of Portland as bait to catch a rapist, three more girls were raped while he bided his time, making his case. Did the city council fire him or even rebuke him? No, they gave him a raise.

Republicans in congress claim to be Pro-Life, yet they reward with our tax dollars, through foreign aid, countries who abort babies, by giving them more of our tax money to open more abortion clinics. And those countries that fight against abortion are listed as countries hostile to this nation. Their crime? Being Pro-Life.

Yes, today the Lord would be looking at congressmen who scream about the high price of gas, point fingers, but voted against reducing the tax by even eliminating temporarily 4.3 cent per gallon temporary tax on gasoline. We live in a time when the democrats and republicans in congress, the senate and the administration are in competition to see which can be the biggest hypocirites, liars, vipers.

May the Lord Jesus, the Christ, you Master, your Creator, be with you all, and if you have not accepted Jesus yet, what are you waiting for? We can not win this country back without Him, for if you are not part of Him, you are part of those listed above, for you can not serve both clinton and Christ!

Amen.

What was Moses doing?

As Moses lead the children of Isreal through the desert for forty years, oft times the children moaned, groaned and complained. Not only did they complain, but every once in a while they would yell at Moses about God being unfair, unjust, or just plain picking on them. Sounds a bit like us today doesn't it?

Well anyhow, every once in a while, God would look down, kind of shake his head and say, enough! And then He would do something that would cause the children of Isreal to stop their collective crying and start crying unto the Lord for forgiveness. One such time is in Numbers 21.

And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way.

And the people spake against God, and against Moses, "Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread."

And the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, "We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD, and against thee; pray unto the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us." And Moses prayed for the people.

And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.

And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.

But why do you think God choose to have a bronze statue of a serpent put up on a pole, raised high above the people an then to heal every one who looked upon it? God does not put things in His book to simply fill space, He puts things in His book for us to learn from, this is no exception. This took place around 1445 BC.

Now about 1475 years later, Jesus was talking to one of the rulers of the Jews, a man by the name of Nicademous, the Lord was explaining to Nicademous that as Moses had raised the bronze serpent, so must the Christ also be able to fulfill that prophecy, that the Christ must also be placed on a pole, held high and those who look on Him, will be healed also, not of snake bites, but the bite of sin.

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth on Him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that God gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
John 3:14-18

What God did with Moses and his hanging the snake on the pole in the wilderness 1475 years before, was to demonstrate what one of the things one must do to be the Christ, Jesus fulfilled this command, this prophecy.

Then delivered he (Pilate) Him (JESUS) therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led Him away. And He bearing His cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: Where they crucified Him, and two other with Him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.

And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.

Just as some refused to look up at the serpent on the pole in the desert back in 1445 BC, so have many refused to look up at Jesus on the cross. The results are the same, those who refused to look up in the desert, died a horrible painfull death. Those who continue to reject Jesus do the same, they die and spend eternity withering in pain in the absoulte darkenss of pit of the serpent.

I pray the Lord will open your eyes this day and I pray that you who have looked up and accepted the Lord will rejoice in this beautiful day He has given us, that you will live for the day in which He will come for His own, for I look folward to meeting each and everyone of you. For those of you who continue to reject the Lord, well, your salvation is your responsibility. Jesus went up on that cross and shed His blood so that you could determine and decide where you will spend all eternity, Heaven with the Lord or hell with the serpent.

May God bless all of my fellow brothers and sisters, may He shine His face upon them and protect them in all they do.

Amen.

for the weekend of Memorial Day 2000
May 27,28 &29, 2000 (AC 6318)

Why Clinton, why now?

Why Clinton is president

As we set aside a moment this Memorial Day weekend, to think about the men, the deeds, the events that made this nation great, can you help but think of Clinton, his minions and his ilk and not find yourslef shaking your head and asking yourslef, what has happened to this great country of ours?

As you watch the parades, with todays troops and men and women who served in years past, world war one, Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf and otheres, can you help but to think of the draft dodging, communist sympathizer in the oval office that these brave men and women are forced to cal sir. Should it not be cur?

Look at the names on the walls, the names etched in granite, the names of men who died givng this nation a written constitution, a constitution made totally errelevant by the US Senate and this corrupt, evil, degenrate administration, can you help but wonder how they would have dealt with Clinton, Snowe, Baldacci, Allen and Frank? Do you think they died so that we as a people, that they fought, killed and died for, could and would turn the reigns of power over to communist, harlots, homosexuals, trailtors, and worse?

How can you but wonder why Bill Clinton is president of these United States of America? How can you but ask yourself how the likes of Barbara Boxer, Ted Kennedy, Susan Collins and Olympia "the queen of infanticide" Snowe could ever become members of the US Senate? Aren't you curious as to how the US House of Representatives became a hangout for the likes of Barney Frank, John Baldacci, John Conyers and Maxine Waters, homosexuals, traitors, communist and lesbians? I believe we will find the answers to these questions and many more in the word of God, the Bible.

Since this is the holiday weekend, and we are expectiong more hits than normal, this weekends thought will use the NIV, instead of the KJV. Tuesday we will return to the KJV.

Let us look at a couple of verses if we may, first, Matthew 6:9-10

"This, then, is how you should pray: " 'Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.' "

In these two verses we see that first the One teaching us to pray is the Lord Himself, next we see Him telling us to always pray to God asking Him to let His will be done, not ours, but His. We sometimes lose sight of the fact that everything that happens here on earth happens because God the Father allows it to happen. He doesn't always cause it to happen, but He does allow it to happen. How do we know this? Look at Job 1:6-12

6 One day the angels came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came with them.

7 The LORD said to Satan, "Where have you come from?" Satan answered the LORD, "From roaming through the earth and going back and forth in it."

8 Then the LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil."

9 "Does Job fear God for nothing?" Satan replied.

10 &11 "Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land. But stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face."

12 The LORD said to Satan, "Very well, then, everything he has is in your hands, but on the man himself do not lay a finger." Then Satan went out from the presence of the LORD. (NIV)

Here we see that even satan (a god that many in Washington seem to worship, if not openly, at least by their actions; open homosexuality and lesbianism, abortion, lying, cheating, stealing, adultery, coveting others' goods and money, treason, etc.) must get God's permission to act. All these are traits of devil worship and they appear to be rampant in our capital city. But, notice even satan had to appear before God, verse 6. Even satan had to report to God, verse 7. Even satan had to answer God's question, verse 8. And even satan has to ask God's permission to do anything, verses 9,10,&11. But look at verse 12, for there we see that satan can only do what God has given him permission to do.

Now you may be asking, so what does this have to do with Clinton, his minions, his ilk and his worshipers being in Washington and being in control of our nation and our government? OK, I'm getting to that. Let's look at Matthew 24. Now you should read the entire chapter yourself to really get the drift of this, but for now let us look at verses, :11-12

. 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.

12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, (NIV)

These two verses are telling us that in a times called ‘Sorrows', false prophets will appear and wickedness will increase and good will decrease.

. Now back to why Clinton and his crowd are in control, nowhere in the Bible is the United States of America mentioned! Not in one place. Oh, granted you will hear some preachers tell you that we are the next Babylon, perhaps they are reading something that I don't see, and others will tell you that the US is really the anti-Christ, but they are few and far between since they cannot support their conclusion using any scripture. So, let us for a minute assume the correctness of my statement, that nowhere in the word of God does the US appear. But, in the prophecies of Revelation, Daniel, Isaiah, Jeremiah and elsewhere, there is a description of a war in the end times. This is the war that ends the world, and it starts at the moment of rapture with the beginning of a time we call tribulation and ends with the battle of Armageddon, Revelation 16:16 Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon. (NIV)

Now, this battle takes place in Israel. Before this, in the beginning of tribulation, we find that Israel has signed a peace pact with the anti-Christ, not the US, but the anti-Christ. Does it not make sense to you that if the US were still a power, not just a super power, but any kind of a power at all, that Israel would be turning to us? But, since there is absolutely no mention of the US in the Bible, especially during the end times or the times of tribulation, does it not make you think that we are, at that time, reduced to less than a third world county? Perhaps a country so involved in self sexual gratification through homosexuality, drugs, lesbianism, and the worshiping of such things as money, cars, possessions, a country with no moral backbone and therefore a country that no other country fears, respects or wishes to be aligned with?

Is that not where Clinton, Barbara Boxer, Ted Kennedy, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe in the US Senate, Barney Frank, John Baldacci, John Conyers and Maxine Waters of the House and their associates of both parties are taking us and this country? My friends, if we have, as I suspect, entered into the time Jesus calls a time of sorrows, then those in Washington are fulfilling end times prophesies as you read this today.

May God be with you and may He protect His from the coming wrath, for I will close with just one more bit of Matthew 24, verse 9
"Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. (NIV)

The ‘you' the Lord is talking about here, are those who are His followers, those who are Born Again Christians, so pray that He will indeed let us not carry a cross any more difficult than we can bear in those times, or should I say these times.

God bless and be with each and every one of you who are saved,

a thought about being saved;

Not long ago, a bunch of us attended a Promise Keepers meeting in Augusta, Maine. While we were there many a fine word was spoken and I am sure that each and every speaker sought to touch the hearts of all the men that were there. I'm just as sure that each prayed and asked the Lord to bless the words that they spoke and I am sure that the Lord not only heard those prayers, but answered them as well.

One speaker spoke on the difference between those that are saved and those who are unsaved. I wish I could remember his name and quote him verbatim, but this is the essence of what he said.

For those of us that are saved through the blood of Jesus, born again Christians, this time on earth is the closest we will ever come to hell!

But for those who are unsaved, all of those who are not born again Christians, this time on earth is their heaven!

That's scary, but true. Read John 3:3.

Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." NKJV

May the Lord Jesus be with you all this Memorial Day weekend, may He forgive us as a nation and rescue us from the evil that has captured this nation and it's capitol. May God forgive us, cleanse us and raise up a leader for us that we can follow and one that will do God's will, serving Him and not satan

. Amen.

Today, you need to ask yourself this question, whom would I rather spend eternity with? The Lord and Creator, Jesus or satan. Do you want to spend wternity with the babies murdered while they slept in the supposed saftey of their mothers wombs, or the vicious muredrerous satan worshipping sadist that ripped them apart, killed them and sold their parts to equally evil researchers, doctors and drug companies? Jesus tells us in John 3:16-18 that He died so that we could all make that very choice, He tells us that by choosing to serve Him, one enters heaven. But by doing nothing or by choosing to serve satan, one enters hell.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. NKJV

Paul goes on in Romans to tell us that we must not only accept Jesus as Lord, Saviour, Master and Creator, we must confess that very fact to others.
that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

For the Scripture says, "Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame."
NKJV
To my fellow veterans, let me add just this. Please give what I have written serious thought, for I would much prefer you spend eternity with me and the Lord Jesus whom I serve, than satan and those who serve him.

Daily Christian thought Friday May 26th, 2000 (6318 AC)

Elders.....

Have you ever wondered about the elders of your church? Ever thought to yourself, "what are these guys suppose to do and how are they picked?".

Well, today let us look at Elders. First, the Word of God, for it is He whom we serve, it is He who first laid down the reasons for and the requirements for elders. And then we will look at the way man has once again taken something pure and good and made it into one more slimmy way to undermine the Church of Jesus, His bride.

If you have your Bible handy, turn to Acts chapter six, for it here that we first learn of elders.

And in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the Grecians against the Hebrews, because their widows were neglected in the daily ministration. This was very soon after Jesus had risen from the dead and the Holy Spirit had come to fill believers, the church was growing fast, really fast, at times adding thousands of believers in a day. The church was starting to care for the elderly, the widows, the sick and the abandoned. But, it was becoming a bigger job then the Apostles could handle, many of the none jewish Christians were not being feed, and as a result the non hebrew or jewish Christians were complaining.

Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables. The complaints had reached all the way up to Peter, John, James and the other Apostles, they said, look guys, our job is to pray, we can't be distracted by book keeping and house cleaning functions. Our job is to pray.

Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business. Now read this carelfully, the Apostles are telling the people to find some elders, they are saying, don't look for men who are experts in the field your looking for, look for men who are first, Born Again Believers also, men who are honest, full of the Holy Spirit and have wisdom. Wisdom is not expertise in the field of feeding widows, wisdom is knowledge of the Word of God.

But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word. For we are to do our job, the job of a pastor, the job of preaching the Word of God and praying for the Saved and the unsaved, the People of Christ and the government. Here the Apostles are very clearly stating that they, the pastors of the church, are to be involved not in bean counting but in soul harvesting.

And the saying pleased the whole multitude: and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Ghost, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolas a proselyte of Antioch: And the peple agreed, for the Holy Spirit was within them and guiding them and they went out and found men, not with degrees in law and accounting, not with degrees in food handling and welfare, but men whom God had blesed with honesty, integrity, men who were Saved, men filled with the Holt Spirit, men with the wisdom of God's Word, men who would do what is right in the sight of God. If you have your Bible, turn to Acts chapter seven and read the entire account of one of the elders, an elder by the name of Stephen. Your elders at your church should be men like Stephen, for Stephen is the elder that God choose to write about in His Book, the Holy Bible, Stephen is the example of what an elder is suppose to be.

Whom they set before the apostles: and when they had prayed, they laid their hands on them. Once appointed, these men were not just sent out to be elders, the pastors, Apostles, laid their hands upon them and prayed for them, they begged God to be with these men to guide them to protect them from evil and temptation to lead them to do His will.

And what happens to the church that selects the right pastor and elders?

And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith. Acts 6:1-7

Amen.

Now let's look at what has happened to elders thanks to government regulations. Since churches who are registered with the government, through the IRS, as 501(c)3 tax exempt organizations must file so much paperwork and comply with so many rules, regulations and laws, many a church forgos looking for Stephens and instead looks for men not filled with the Holy Spirit, not even men with wisdom, quite often these men are neither Born Again nor even men. For all to often the church of today is looking for a man or a women with a degree in law, with a degree in accounting, oh how lucky the church with a heathen former IRS agent by the name of Jezabell on it's board of elders.

But, why is this? Can we blame the pastor for this? No, we need to blame ourselves for this, for we refuse to donate to churches that can not give us a tax deductable receipt. If the church is not a government IRS approved 501(c)3 church, the donations given to that church are not tax deductable.

Now I want you to understand, this is not a plea for money, nor is it a plea for contributions, but when you get a chance, click on the link that says "Would you like to help this ministry?". We are not a 501(c)3 church, we can not give tax deductable receipts, we don't even accept checks anylonger, only cash or money orders. Why? I do not want to be influenced by a persons money nor giving, nor lack of giving. When we get a prayer request, I don't want to think, about how much the person gives, only about the prayer request. We, as you can see, get quite a few hits, judging by my email, we have a lot of folks who come daily, yet, even though our yearly exspences are under $1,500. Last year, we took over 95% of our operating exspences out of my wives paycheck as a teacher.

But, likewise, ACP has no elders, no one second guesing the Daily thoughts or the sermons. Both are done after prayer and with the guidence of the Holy Spirit.

Am I being critical of churches who have put government regulations ahead of the Word of God? Yes and no, I am being more critical of the so called Christian who demands a tax deductable reciept than I am the pastor who goes along with having heathen members on his board of elders.

But for those of you who are pastors reading this, let me tell you about a man whom I love, a man whom I know to be a true man of God, a pastor of pastors, yet he was removed from the church that he, through his preaching grew into the largest church of it's denomination in Maine, a church in a community of under five thousand who sent more youngsters to a youth function in Portland than any other church of any denomination in the state. A pastor who was not removed because of any failing on his part within his personal life or for failing to preach the Word of God from the pulpit. No, my brother, my mentor, my pastor, Lester, was remeoved because the board of governors said "he isn't a good admiistrator." and that's what happens when elders become men and women of the world and not men of God, not: men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom,.

The Lord Jesus, the Messiah, the Christ, Yeshua be with you and yours this day, pray that HE will help your church and that HE will guide your pastor and your elders to do what is right in the sight of God.

Amen.

Daily Christian thought Thursday May 25th, 2000 (6318 AC)

It seems we have made our national choice.

Yesterday, the congress of these United States voted to give communist China, Permanent preferred trading staus. China, a brutal, communist country, a country that takes young Christian men and women, in their 20's and early 30's, puts them in islolated prison camps and uses them to fill orders from the United States for body parts. This is no secret, it was shown on US secular television stations. China is a nation that brags to the rest of the world about having aborted over 300,000,000 (three hundred million) babies in the last 20 years alone. No secret, it was on national televison. China a nation that bribed the president of the USA and in return got military secrets that have made them capable of aiming nuclear missles at US cites. A nation that ruthlessly hunts down and kills true Christians and anyone else that decents from the brutal party line. A nation that has out and out threatened the USA, yet, this congress put US sorvienty aside, put the truth of the tortures, abortions, and body part harvesting aside, put aside the treasonous behavior between the president and this communist regime and voted to reward China in an effort to maybe increase trade. To increase, possibly, the amount of money that a few well placed individuals and corprations can put into their pockets.

Yesterday the leaders of this country made it very clear to the entire wold that the United States of America, would from here on out, put a higher price on potential profit then on human life. This so called Pro-Life, Republican congress has just disgraced every ideal this nation was founded on. They have demonstrated their combined distain and hatred for the ideals of the founding fathers and the Christ in which this nation once put it's trust, tenfold more than anything the Democrats, and out and out communist front party, was ever able to do.

This congress abided not by the rule of law, the rule of the Constitution, the rule of Christ, but instead the rule of such hypocritical two faced pathological egotistical liars as Rush Limbaugh and Bill Clinton. This congress is a disgrace as is Mr. limbaugh, they are more of disgrace than the president, for with clinton, we know we are dealing with a satan worshipping communist, he by his every action has proven his stance, his hatred of both the constitution and the Word of God. But this congress and Mr. Rush Limbaugh smile at us, pat us on the back, tell us they love the Lord and are Pro-Christ, Pro-Life and Pro-Constitution and then turn around and deficate on all three.

Jesus said:

Luke 16:13 - No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon .

and:

... a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

And why call ye Me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
Luke 6:43-46

The founding fathers of this once great nation said at the very end of the Declaration of Independence and immediatley before they placed thier signatures:

"Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be FREE AND INDEPENDENT STATES; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor."

To those in Washington, the board rooms, the main stream media and Rush Limbaugh I would ask this:

What have you pledged your honor, fortunes and lives to? Do not tell me to this nation nor to Christ, for as the Lord has taught that we can tell by your fruits who and what you worship and serve and by your support for the brutal communist regime of China, you have proven that it is not Christ nor the country He once so blessed, that you pledge your honor, your fortunes and your lives.

Oh Lord in heaven above, I pray to Thee, please give us one more chance, please raise up for us one to lead us that will do what is right in Your sight and not in the sight of satan.

Amen.

Gov. George Bush is not Pro-Life!

The Lord above came to earth in the form a man named Jesus, while on earth and before shedding His precious, sacred, sinless, pure and perfect blood for the atonement of our sins, giving us a way to eternal salvation and life in heaven with Him, He taught us certain things.

Luke 16:13 - No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon .

and:

... a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

And why call ye Me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
Luke 6:43-46

While Gov. Bush and most of the Republicans in the congress claim to be both Christians and Pro-Life, as the Lord has told us, they can not be both Christian and heathen nor can they be both Pro-Life and pro abortion. Jesus tells us that we will know which they are by their actions, by thier deeds, by their fruit.

Today, the congress will vote whether or not to give communist China permanant most favored nation status. China is a nation that forces women to abort their second baby, and every baby after the first is born. If a woman won't do this voluntarily, the government of China takes her, ties her down and rips her baby from her. No one who is Pro-Life could possibley want to reward a government like that, yet Gov. Bush and the majority of Republican congressmen are planning to once more bow down to the alter of clinton and a few big businesses and cast their vote to do just that.

If you put the life of even one unborn baby ahead of the profit sheet of Motorola , Dupont and Boeing, then call your congressman and tell him to vote against China and for the baby in the womb. And remember them in November, if George Bush wants your vote, let him prove by his actions that he is Pro-Life, that he is a Christian.

You can reach your congressman by calling the capitol and asking for him or her at: 1-202-225-3121

May the Lord our God bless you and keep you safe, may He reward those who are Pro-Life with a long, prosperous and healthy life and may He do to those who support abortion what the abortionist does to the baby in the womb.

Amen.

It's time like this that I wish Eric Rudolph was a congressman from Maine and not forced to hide. Maybe if God will raise up and honest God fearing president who appoints an Attorney General who believes in justice, maybe then Eric can get a fair and honest trial.

Is the pope and idol worshipper?

Is the Pope a heathen?

Is he leading a hundred plus million men and women straight to hell?

I'm afraid the answer to both those questions is yes. The Pope, the head of the Roman Catholic church is every bit the worker of evil and servant of satan that clinton, reno, baldacii, snowe and the rest of this corrupt congress and administration are.

The Ten Commandments, Exodus twenty verses 1-7.

And God spake all these words, saying;

I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
( Notice very carefully who is speaking here, the speaker introduces Himself by saying, "I am the LORD thy God". While Moses did the relaying of this message, God the Creator was the Author and original Speaker!)

Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; (You shall not worship anything other than God, You shall make no images of anything out an anything, for He is a jealous God and He will punish your children, your grandchildren, your great grandchildren and your great great grandchildren if you do. But what has the Pope done? He went to Isreal stood on a mountain, walked up to a man made statue of what some humble human creation pictured in his own mind what God the Son, Jesus, the Messiah looked like while HE hung on the cross, prayed to it, embraced it and kissed it's feet. Now, you tell me what the pope was doing. Was he not practicing idol worship? Was he not worshipping a graven image made in the likeness of someone? Was he not bowing himself down to a statue of a depiction of the crucifiction?)

And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. (God will forgive and love those who abide by His rules, those who love Him enough to put Him ahead of idols, or any other false gods.)

Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. (To misquote God and His book, the holy Bible is to use His name in vain. When one twist the words of scripture to allow for the practices going on in the catholic church, one is using God's name in vain. When a preacher preaches that something in the old testament no longer counts, he is twisting God's Word and is using God's name in vain. When clinton says that he has searched the Bible and God does not consider oral sex adultery, clinton is using God's name in vain. When you do not raise your children to fear and love God with every fiber of their bodies, you are taking God's name in vain! Twist His words in any way whatsoever and you are just as guilty of using God's name in vain as the pope and clinton are.)

Try to understand what idolatry is, it is not just doing as the pope leads millions of catholics to hell by doing, worshipping openly at the feet of an idol, a statue, a thing graven by man, it is putting anything ahead of God. Our government does this through it's laws, the US congress enacted and has failed to remove, a tax penalty for being married, therefore a tax incentive for shacking up and living in sin. Causing people through tax incentives of over a hundred a month, to forgo God's Word and live together as husband and wife without the bonds of matrimony. This is idlolaty, it is the worshipping of a sexual relationship over and above the rules which God laid down for sexual relationships, that is worshipping mans laws above God's laws. And God will not hold you harmless, for He very clearly tells us that He will "visit the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;".

Stop trying to make God's Word conform to your life, make your life conform to God's Word. Think about this for a moment, the liberal preacher tells you that Jesus is your best friend. Hogwash! Jesus is not your best friend, He is your creator, He is your God. But to give you some idea of how humble you are, God first made dirt and from that dirt, He made Adam and Eve and from Adam and Eve, we decended.

The Children of Isreal had it right when they said to Moses after God had given him the Ten Commandments;
And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off. And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die. Exodus 20:18&19

For keep this in your mind always, never forget these words spoken by the Lord Jesus in Matthew 10:28 "And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."

The Lord Jesus, Yeshua, bless you and carry your name before the Father.

Amen.

So, what is it? Pornography? Masturbation? What?

Have you ever looked yourself in the mirror and said to yourself, "There is no way God can love me, not while I'm addicted to this (Fill in your worst sin). Have you, if you are a Born Again Christian, doubted your salvation because of some hidden sin in your heart? A sin that keeps coming back, no matter how hard you try to avoid it? A sin like watching pornography on the internet, or perhaps looking too closley at you daughter's friends when the spend a night over and are lounging around the living room in their pajamas?

Maybe your sin is that you really want to see clinton, reno and their gun tootin bodyguards and enforcers in the batf, fbi, ss and other black booted thugs get what's coming to them. Perhaps you find yourself dreaming or robbing a bank, or gambeling or having an affair.

Thank God for the Apostle Paul, for Paul too wrestled with a sin of the flesh. And if there is anyone's salvation we can be sure of, it is the 12 Apostles, including Paul. In today's thought, we're going to look at what Paul had to say as he wresteled with the sin of the flesh, while we do not know what that sin was, we so know what ours are and what Paul wrote 2000 years ago, is just as valid today as it was then.

Romans 7:13-25 Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.

For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.

For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.

If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.

Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.

Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:

But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

So, what is Paul saying? Let's look again at what Paul wrote, this time with notes that you may find helpful:

Romans 7:13-25

Was then that which is good made death unto me? Is the Holy Spirit wihin me, killed by me because of my sin? Has He left me because of my sin?

God forbid. No! God forbid such a thing would happen to a man who is really Born Again.

But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful. Here Paul is telling us that sin,makes itself known to us as sin, causing us to doubt our own salvation or for those who are unsaved, doubting that they ever can be forgiven. This is one of satans many little tricks to make us doubt our salvation or convinced the unsaved that they are to bad for God to forgive.

For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. Paul, here is admitting that he is only human, and that by being human he, like us, has been sold to satan by the original sin of Adam and Eve. That no matter how hard we try, we can not be perfect, as Jesus is perfect, not while we are bound within our earthly bodies.

For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. Those things that I do, I don't want to do, those things that I want to do, I fall short in. Kind of like this, I don't want to look at that girl bending over in her mini skirt, but I can't help it, I am only human. This is what Paul is telling us, that we are but humans and while we want to do what is right in the sight of the Lord at all times, we are human and satan still has much rule over our lives. It is part of the cross we bear. For you women out there it would be like this, "I don't want to wear these whorts, but I look so cute in them, I can't help myself".

If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. By realizing, thanks to the Laws laid down by God in the first five books of the Bible, that I understand that I am doing wrong. That is good, for then I can ask the Lord Jesus to forgive me and strengthen me, and help me be less sinful.

Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: Ok, here it is, here paul is summerizing, he is telling us that while we are doing the sin, it is satan's ownership of us that causes it. Look, Paul is not excusing us for the sins we fight with, he is telling us that it is our sinful nature that causes it. It is only human for a man to look at a woman, but it is wrong to look at any woman other than our own wife with lust in our heart. It is wrong to dream about robbing a bank or a news report that starts of with the shocking announcement that someohow during then last 30 minutes every abortionist and all those who support abortion had their arms ripped off of them and then the rest of their bodies were ripped up, kind of like what the abortionist does to the baby in the womb. And while I agree it would be wonderful to hear such news, when you think of it, how could we? For who would be left to bring us the news, is not the media just in love with the abortionist as clinton, reno, baldacci and snowe are.

But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? But I see another law within me, that is the law of God, it is the Holy Spirit within us who are Saved. and it is that Holy Spirit who will help us fignt off the law of man, sin, all we need do is beseech His help, repent and ask the Spirit to help you, say the Lords prayer.

I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin. Here Paul is thanking God for coming to the earth in the form a man named Jesus to be the perfect sacrifice to atone for our sins, God didn't ask someone else to die for us, He came to earth Himself, as the perfect Lamb, the perfect and sinless, blamless and without blemish or sin, sacrifice to atone for what Adam had done 4,318 years before, when Adam for a bit of sin, turned control of the earth and all that is in it and on it, over to satan.

So, when you find yourself faced with what seems like an unpardonable sin, stop trying to fight it on your own, turn to God if you are Saved, and let the Holy Spirit that dwells within you help you fight it. Remember, once you're Saved, Born Again, your body becomes the temple of the Holy Spirit, but also remember this, God only helps you when you ask His help, while He knows even before you, what things you are in need of, He has given you free will. And that free will let's you decide what path to take and what help to ask for.

For those of you who are unsaved, read John 3:1-18 to find why you must get Born Again and Saved and then find an old encyclopedia, one written before political correctness and the reinventing of history and read about Roman Centurions. Then read Acts the 10th chapter.

The Lord Jesus, the Messiah, the Christ, be with you all.

Amen.

Would your wife have been raped?

Friday, I told you that you should never give up your Bible or your guns. Today, I am first going to ask you a question, by relaying to you a news story:

At about 8:PM December 20th, 1999, a man forced his way into the home of Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Horn in Cumberland county, Tennessee. The intruder, one Jason McCulley, a 28 year old , not unknown to local police, threatened the couple with a knife, tied them up and forced them to an upstairs bedroom, while he was preoccuppied with Mrs. Horn, Mr. Horn was able to free himself, get his gun and sent this young hoodlum to his final judgement. McCulley, a staunch supporter of gun control, was pronounced dead on arrival at the Cumberland county medical center.
source, The new American.

Now, my question to you, especially those of you who live in New york, Washington, Los Angeles, Detroit and other communities with draconian gun laws. Had that happened to you and your wife, what would the outcome have been?

It is time for Christians to be armed!

In recent times we have seen absolute hostility towards the Christian community. Now I'm not talking about you social club Christians, you have no hostility towards you and why should you? For you have turned from the God of Redemption to the god of get along, follow the rules, protect the child murdering scum in the white house and the abortion mill. So, why would anyone of the world hold any hostility towards you, you're on your way to hell with them. Satan already has your infant blood soaked soul.

No, I'm talking about those few Christians that put Jesus first and foremost, that worship Jesus not just with candles and pretty little hymns that talk about flowers and earth and mundane things of the earth. But those who fall on their faces, those who cry tears of joy, pain and suffering, those who grieve for this nation and it's way of life, those who practice what they preach and know that God wrote the book we call the Bible and that HE said exactly what HE meant and meant exactly what He said in His book.

Turn with me to the book of Luke:

Luke 22:35-38

And Jesus said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing. Then said He unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end. And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And Jesus said unto them, It is enough.

There is not one place in Scripture where God tells us, to not defend our families. When you listen to those who preach "turn the other cheek", read the verses yourself, God is talking about you turning your cheek when you are struck, not turning the other cheek when your loved ones are struck. Women, wives, have children, men, husbands, protect them!

The Lord be with you, and if you are not armed, get armed, for the time comes when this Nazi loving , homosexual loving, anti Christ worshipping, child murdering clinton/ reno government will do to the fundamental Christian what Hitler tried to do to the jews. But this time satan through his minions his ilk and those who serve him knowingly and unknowing, like clinton, reno and the extreme left wing liberals in the US Government will be going after the real children of God, the Born Again washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian.

Christian get your gun, learn to use it, stay in prayer to the Lord and be prepared to defend your family, for there are no differences between Gore, Bradley, McCain and Bush! All are avowed friends of the world, therefore avowed enemies of the Christ. All are CFR members making all of them one world government lackeys.

Christ loving Christians, get a gun, learn to use it and be prepared to defend your families.

The Lord Jesus be with all of you who are His and may He protect us from those who are satan's.

Amen.

What is it that clinton so hates about us?

Have you ever wondered to yourself why the clinton adminstration through his lackies in the juistice department so hate Chrsitians? The answer is really quite simple, all one needs to do is look at what those who are Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians believe and compare it to clinton, his minions, his ilk and those who support him believe.

And God spake all these words, saying, I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me. But what of clinton and his gang, what do they worship? Could one who condones the murder of a baby be a follower of Christ? So, while we worship God Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, clinton and his follow satan.

Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. Clinton had his mother killed to keep her from talking to the press and finishing her book.

Thou shalt not kill. Clinton, his minions and his ilk, tortured, gassed, killed and burnt to death 87 men, women and children at the Branch Dividian compound outside of Waco, Texas.

Thou shalt not commit adultery. Monica Lewinsky, Catherine Willey, Jennifer Flowers and the list goes on and on and on, but remember, clinton claims that he has read the Bible and according to him, God does not consider oral sex adultery, but then again, according to his court filings, neither does he.

Thou shalt not steal. Truck loads of our property, property paid for with our tax dollars, belonging to us, US property has left the Whitehouse to go to the clinton's new slime pit outside of New York City.

Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. Clinton has been found guilty of perjury by a judge he appointed.

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's. This man, this the most corrupt and degenerate individual to ever hold public office in these United States, has not only stolen US property to furnish his home in New York, he is conspiring with the forces of evil to steal Isreal and give it to the decendnts of Esau.
Exodus 20

Why do clinton, his minions and his ilk so hate Born Again Believers? He hates us because Christ told us 2,000 years ago that the servants of the god the high priest and the others that crucified the Messiah served, would hate us as they hated Him.

Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in My name, He may give it you. These things I command you, that ye love one another.

If the world hate you, ye know that it hated Me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept My saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for My name's sake, because they know not Him that sent Me.

John 15.

Yes, it really is quite simple, clinton, the main stream media, the fbi, batf, irs, and the rest of this government hate those who follow Christ, for they follow satan and and no one that follows satan can do anything but evil to those of us who follow Christ, their god, satan will not allow it. Bear this in mind, if they will murder their own unborn babies, what do you think they have in mind for you and me? Never ever give up your guns. Never give up your Bible and never give up your guns.

May the Lord Jesus, the Messiah, the Christ be with you and make you strong for what is to come.

Amen.

The key to accepting the Bible as absolute truth.

The key to accepting Jesus as Messiah, is the understanding and 100% accptence of this one verse, this verse that is so important that God put it at the very beginning of His book the Holy Bible.



1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
Genisis 1:1-5

You see, if you understand that God created the earth, that it didn't evolve, that it wasn't some random act of collision between two bits of dust a trillion years ago, but, that the earth and all that is in it and on it were created by God. Once you understand that and really accpt it, then every thing else in the Blbile is easy to accept. For what could possibly be to difficult for the God who created the earth, by simply thinking and speaking it into existance, to do. How hard is it for that God to cause a virgin to have His Son? How hard would it be for that God who created the universe to cause a 90 year old woman to have a son named Abram who would later become Abraham? How hard would it be for that God to come to earth in the form a man named Jesus and raise Himself from the dead after three days.

Now take a moment to think and to ask yourself this one question. Do you really believe that God created the earth, the waters, the atmosphere, all of the plants, trees, flowers, animals, fish and man in six days? If after giving true thought and soul searching to that question, you can not honestly say yes, then say this little prayer:

Lord God help me to believe, amen.

May the Lord Jesus, the Messiah be with you all, may He lead you to accept Him and His ways, even when you do not fully understand either.

Amen.

Why the warning?

Luke 6:27-38

But I say unto you which hear,

Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also.

Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.

And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

In Luke chapter six, verses twenty seven through thirty eight, we see the importance of using extreme caution when doing business, for the Lord has taught us that we are not to demand payment for that in which we have loaned, that if a man ask for your shirt or for that fact even takes it by force, you are not to stop him from taking your coat also.

The Lord teaches that we are to: Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also. We know that we are not to sue a brother Christian, nor are we to lend to him or her thinking of getting paid back, but here the Lord is telling us that when some one steals from you and him that taketh away thy cloke, as Wal Mart seems to be doing by causing debit accounts to be overcharged, we are not to fight them over it, but instead, give them a few dollars more, forbid not to take thy coat also, if they ask for it or try to take it.

So, if you are a Born Again Believer, you should avoid risk, risk that would or could cause you to want to sue a person or company that cheats you or alters your check or credit card, the best way to avoid that risk is to use only cash when dealing with companies that seem to be manipulating the amounts submitted on credit and debit cards. If you're going to use checks, insist that your check be run through by hand and not by machine and scanner. Or better yet, get checks that scanners refuse to read.

For the best way to avoid the desire to sin is to avoid doing things that might cause you to sin.

The Lord Jesus be with you all,

Amen.

False Christ, false teachers, false doctrines.

Over the last few weeks it has become abundantly obvious, even to those who watch little or no television, like my wife and myself, that the networks are pushing a false and dangerous doctrine, showing false Christ and false teachings. Sometime in the last week or two CBS, one of the major televison networks in the US of A, blasphemed God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. How do I know? I read the Bible. But for those who refuse to read God's Word, the Holy Bible, the lies on CBS, showing the Messiah as something other than what He is were convincing to say the least. For we in our humbleness like to see the Lord as just another Joe. CBS and satan know that and they play off of it.

Let us look at what the Messiah said, the warning He gave His disciples and apostles.

Matthew 24:11-24

And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

Currently we have preachers claiming that they have seen Jesus, that they have talked to Jesus and that they have a new message to deliver. The Lord tells us in the above verses to not believe such men and women, nor should you believe the evil which is television. Look, your salvation is your responsibility and your responsibility alone. If you choose to disobey the Word of God and follow false preachers, be my guest, but don't think for even one micro second that you can use that as an excuse when the day of judgement comes. For the Messiah, Jesus, Yeshua has warned you and warned you and warned you, if you fail to heed those warnings by refusing to read His Book, so be it. But never loose sight of this, you and only you will decide where you are to spend eternity, in heaven with the Lord or in hell with satan.

John 3:16-18

16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

You Save yourself by accepting Jesus as your Lord, your Saviour, your Creator, your God. You condemn yourself to an eternity of hell by not accepting Jesus as your Lord, your Saviour, your Creator, your God. Simple huh, fairer or more just it could not be, for you and only you determine where you will spend eternity.

May the Lord Jesus be with you, may He help you and guide you, may He bless you and protect you and yours if you are His already.

Amen.

Do you have itchy ears?

Two thousand years ago, Paul wrote a letter to Timothy, the letter could have been written today about today. Many it seems, think only of Paul as an apostle of the Christ, Lord Jesus. But Paul was also a prophet of God and as a result, everything he warns us about will come true. A trip to any of the so called main stream churches on Sunday morning will confirm what Paul prophesied, within ten minutes of the preacher or priest starting his or God forbid, her, sermon. We hear preachers condoning adultery, homosexuality, abortion, clinton politics, welfare, socialism, and worse, we here preachers denying the divinity of Jesus and refusing to preach that if one is not born again that one will most definitely go to hell. They refuse to preach the Trinity and scoff at the virgin birth of the Lord.

Now read what Paul wrote two thousand years ago.

2 Timothy 3:1-6

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lust. Are you one of these silly women?
How about your wife, mother, sister, daughter or some other woman close to you? If they are, what should you do about it?

2 Timothy 4:1-5

I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

For remember, what Paul had told us would happen:

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

Don't read between the lines of God's word, read the Bible as if it were a letter written by God to you. A personal letter that starts off:
My dearest ___________, In the beginning I, God created the heaven and the earth.

Don't let the preacher get in the way of your salvation, don't let the main stream media or the politicians, cops, teachers, preachers or anyone else. Remember The Messiah, Jesus, told us in Matthew and Mark;

...fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28

and

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Mark 8:36-37

And one day, you will bow before the Lord, you will acknowledge that Jesus is God and then He will tell you where you will spend eternity. For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God. Romans 14:11-12

May the Lord Jesus be with you, may He bless and keep you, may He be with you and yours this day.
Amen

And Jesus said:

"I and my Father are one."

John 10:30

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

John 3:16-18 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son Jesus into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Jesus might be saved. He that believeth on Jesus is not condemned: but he that believeth not on Jesus is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

These verses make it very clear indeed that only those who are Born Again washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians are going to heaven, all others are going to hell. If you are not Born Again, you are absolutely on your way to hell, the micro second you die, there is no other option. The only way to get into heaven is to accept the Lord Jesus, the Christ as your own personal Lord, Master, Creator and Saviour. To do otherwise is to absolutely guarantee yourself of an eternity of everlasting torment, pain, burning and ultimate darkness in hell. Read what the Lord said again, in verse three. Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Do you see any room for exceptions? Of course not; why? Because there is no other way into heaven except through what the Messiah did on the cross.

May the Lord Jesus, the Christ, the Messiah, God, bless all of you who are saved and for those who are not, that read this, May the Holy Spirit touch their hearts, open their eyes and allow the truth of Scripture to abide within them.

If Jesus came for His church today, would you be left behind? If you died twenty minutes from now, would you see the kingdom of heaven?

Rely on no man for your salvation, rely on the Word of God. You and only you are responsible for your salvation.

Amen.

I don't often do this.

On April 20th 1999, two satan worshiping hitlerites were turned loose at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado. Well, last night my wife and I had the opportunity to hear Daryl Scott, the father of Rachael Joy Scott and to watch Dana Scott, Rachael older sister do a mime act that Rachael had taught her a week before she was murdered for saying yes to the question, "Do you believe in Jesus?" Today's thought is a link to the Scott's website, take a moment and read it, last night, when Daryl finished speaking he offered an alter call. Hundreds went forward, most with tears in their eyes.

This is the link to The Scott page.
This will be a permanent addition to our links.

May the Lord bless you and yours and may you never know the pain of losing a child.

First this warning:

You must use extreme caution when using a bank debit card at any Wal Mart Store!

Now today's thought:

Why the warning?

Luke 6:27-38

But I say unto you which hear,

Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also.

Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.

And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

In Luke chapter six, verses twenty seven through thirty eight, we see the importance of using extreme caution when doing business, for the Lord has taught us that we are not to demand payment for that in which we have loaned, that if a man ask for your shirt or for that fact even takes it by force, you are not to stop him from taking your coat also.

The Lord teaches that we are to: Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also. We know that we are not to sue a brother Christian, nor are we to lend to him or her thinking of getting paid back, but here the Lord is telling us that when some one steals from you and him that taketh away thy cloke, as Wal Mart seems to be doing by causing debit accounts to be overcharged, we are not to fight them over it, but instead, give them a few dollars more, forbid not to take thy coat also, if they ask for it or try to take it.

So, if you are a Born Again Believer, you should avoid risk, risk that would or could cause you to want to sue Wal Mart. And the best way to avoid that risk is to use only cash when dealing with companies that seem to be manipulating the amounts submitted on credit and debit cards. If you're going to use checks, insist that your check be run through by hand and not by machine and scanner. Or better yet, get checks that scanners refuse to read.

For the best way to avoid the desire to sin is to avoid doing things that might cause you to sin.

The Lord Jesus be with you all,

Amen.

And then we have those who trust the feds to educate our kids.

A map of the United States of America featured on the White House's official website shows the state of Kentucky occupying what is commonly known as Tennessee, the DRUDGE REPORT can reveal! Drudge Report

President Clinton's 'School Reform Tour' is outlined in a map featured at http://www.whitehouse.gov/WH/New/Education_Tour.

One stop on the tour, Owensboro, Kentucky, is shown in a location that falls in the great state of Tennessee -- the home of Vice President Gore!

White House officials scrambled to remove the map late Monday night.

"There is no one from the web development team working at this hour who can fix the map!" one embarrassed official explained.

China detains 47 members of Protestant group

7 May 2000 (Newsroom) --
Chinese police have detained 47 members of a Protestant group in central Anhui province, according to the state press. The Jianghui Morning Daily said last week that six of the main leaders of the Quanfanwei (Holistic) Church face criminal charges for organizing an illegal sect and illegal gatherings.

The group is believed to be related to the "Born Again Movement" founded in Henan province by prominent underground church leader Peter Xu Yongze, who is about to complete a three- year prison sentence. According to the Hong Kong-based Information Centre for Human Rights and Democratic Movement in China, the government campaign against the group could be related to Xu's imminent release. For the full report, click here.

Yet the congress and the senate of these United States can not seem to find the courage to with hold most favored trade status for China. They like the president, have become so dependent on China for financial support it would seem, that they care about nothing else.

Should we who are Born Again be surprised at this? No, heavens no, for Jesus has told us this would happen.

Matthew 24:3-9
And as Jesus sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in My name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are but the beginning of sorrows.

Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for My name's sake.

We have the wars all over the globe, we have this congress and this senate allowing the president to bomb aspirin factories, bridges and hospitals under the guise of saving the children, while in fact it is for no other reason then to keep his own ill deeds off the front pages. And now, we are starting to see the beginning of real persecution of Christians, real persecution, yet ignored by this congress and senate so as to appease their new master and his god.

But, what else could we expect from this corrupt and degenerate government? A government that makes perjury by the president a lesser crime than spitting on the sidewalk. For our written constitution very clearly states that a president is to be removed from office for high crimes and misdemeanors. Friends, a misdemeanor is spitting on the sidewalk, jaywalking and parking tickets. For as the Lord has told us, this government ins incapable of doing what is right, for:

Luke 6:43-45
For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

And then there are those who lie, cheat, steal, murder and even put their lives on the line to protect this filth in the oval office. Think about that for a moment, most Americans who call themselves Christians wouldn't die or inconvenience themselves for the Lord Jesus, yet those flunkies called the fbi and secret service will die for their lord Clinton and he whom Clinton serves, satan.

I will not ask God to show mercy on this country any longer, now I ask God to rescue us from the evil we have become. Yesterday's thought dealt with parents and daughters, I am appalled at the responses, we have become as sick and degenerate as those we send to Washington and Augusta, Maine. We do not deserve His forgiveness, we deserve His wrath and His punishment. For it appears that through no other means will this nation turn form it's evil ways and repent. And may the Lord God Almighty do to the abortionist and those who support abortion what the abortionist does to the baby in the womb.

Lord deal with us, for we know that You only chastize those whom You love. And I pray that Your love for us has not turned to hate. Show us that You love us Lord by caring enough for us to discipline us.

Amen.

Well, here come the bikinis.

Deuteronomy 22:13-21

If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her, and give occasions of speech against her, and bring up an evil name upon her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid: Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel's virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate: And the damsel's father shall say unto the elders, I gave my daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her; and, lo, he hath given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter's virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city. And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise him; And they shall amerce him in an hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father of the damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days.

But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father's house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you.

You who are fathers and mothers of daughters, would your daughter be protected by the elders or stoned by the men of the city? Well, as summer dawns and the bikinis come out, perhaps you had best keep these verses in mind. For if you condone and encourage your daughters parading around in front of men and women alike in nothing more than what is seen on the beaches and called bathing suits, the chances of your raising a young woman who would be protected are very slim to say the least, for girls like boys are rebellious in their teens and it is up to dad and mom to put restraints on her.

As parents, we all know that kids, both boys and girls are going to push to see how much they can get away with. That is only natural, but when your little girl comes out of the changing room wearing a bikini or other suggestive apparel, and mom says, "oh, isn't that cute", your daughter says, in her mind, "well, I got away with that, let's see what she says to this", and next will be even less.

You're not her best friend, God never intended you to be her best friend, you are her parents. It is up to you to raise your children up in the ways of the Lord and those ways do not include raising your daughters to be a slut and your sons to be a promiscuous disease ridden slobs. Get it right parents, there is no such thing as a born again virgin, her virginity is a one time thing, she keeps it intact and brings it to the wedding bed, or she is a slut. Left to her on devices, she will go with her earthly instincts. That is why dads and moms need to be on top of things all the time, if your little girl is gong to win the battle between virginity at marriage and sluthood, she is going to need all the help and guidance you can give her. And don't think for one minute that she is going to just accept this guidance, she will in all probability fight you tooth and nail. Start with her when she is still in the womb with prayers and then from the day she enters the wold to the day she marries, you choose her cloths, you choose her friends, you rule her life.

By the way, most of you reading this who have children over fourteen have already lost this battle, but, you can help others win, when you see a youngster wearing suggestive clothing, don't smile condescendingly, shake your head and show your disappointment. Pray for your kids, your grandchildren and the little ones in your church. Don't fall for the "misery loves company" garbage, help others to not make the same mistakes so many of us have already. Pray for God's help for those parents and their kids.

And one last thing, if you really do think your little girl looks cute in skimpy bathing suits and things, you need to reevaluate your relationship with your daughter. You need to fall on your knees and beg Gods forgiveness and help in seeing your daughter as your daughter and not as some cute little honey in a bikini. For she is not some cute little honey down the street, she is your daughter.

The Lord Jesus, the Messiah be with you all.
Amen.

Why do bad things happen to good people?

Wow, is that a common question or what? How often does one hear that same question asked? Seems every time something that one perceives as being bad happens to them, the first thing they do is question God and ask "why do bad things happen to good people?" What they really mean is why does God allow bad things to happen to good people like me? What surprises me most, is when folks who claim to be Born Again Believers ask that question, folks who claim to read the word of God, the Bible, for Jesus addresses enough of that question in three of the four gospels to preclude the asking of that question by anyone who reads His words.

Mark 10:17-18
And when Jesus was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to Him, and asked Him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.

So, why do bad things happen to good people? Well, to start with, there are no good people for we are all sinners worthy of death, none of us is good enough to earn heaven, for even God when He walked the earth in the body of a man called Jesus, did not consider Himself good, for He lived in an evil society and within the body of man.

But are those things we oft times consider bad really bad in the first place? Not allows. Look here:
Zechariah 13:8-9
And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

So, that thing you're referring to as bad in your live may be the Lord working in your life, refining you and preparing you to do that which He has reserved for you to do. As silver is refined by putting it in the fire, taking it out letting it cool and then putting it back in the fire again, as this is done over and over again in the process of refining silver, so does the Lord refine us. Not with fire, bur with trials and tribulations, things to get the garbage out of our lives and bring us closer to Him. When these things happen, instead of cursing God, thank Him for loving you enough to take the time and effort to refine you.

The Lord JESUS, the Messiah, Yeshua be with you and bless you this day, may He shine His face upon you and bless you abundantly. May He hear your prayers and refine you gently.

Amen.

What if Jesus came to your house?

Tell me something, what would you do if the Lord knocked on your front door? When you opened the door and saw that it was the Lord, would you be ashamed of what you were wearing? Would you hastily put the cigarette behind your back? Would you be able to invite the Lord right in or would you have to ask Him to wait a minute while you turned off the TV or hid the book or magazine you were just reading? Would you be able to welcome Him in or would you first have to hide the booze?

Last night my wife did something that made me so proud of her that I am almost busting at the seams. You see both my wife and I are in our mid fifties, now for a man, that means a bit of a bulge around the middle, or at least it does in my case. But, for a woman, well, it is a bit different, things are happening to her body that I neither understand nor care to learn any more about. But, my wife, like all woman in or entering into that stage of their lives does need to know, and that means reading books.

Now, neither Cec, my wife, nor I am really big on using prescription drugs, since the drug manufacturers have started experimenting on, with and using parts from aborted babies bodies to develop their new ‘wonder' drugs, we have mostly stayed clear of anything requiring a prescription. But, herbs we both trust and use. Unfortunately there are very few doctors around that are even marginally knowledgeable of herbs and herbal treatments, so, we get herb books and try to treat ourselves, mostly I might add with excellent results.

Well, yesterday Cecily stopped by our local GNC store and picked up a book that dealt specifically with the thing middle aged woman go through. When she got home and started looking through this book, she suddenly put it down and said, " we can't have this book in the house". When I asked her why, she said, "it is full of witchy stuff and references to the ‘goddess'. What would Jesus think and what would we do if He came to the door while I was reading it.".

What about you, would you let the Lord look at the history of where you visit on the net? Would you let Him poke through your library? Would you have to change your tv viewing habits if He came for the weekend or even the night? What would you do if He said, "I was in the neighborhood and thought I'd come by and hang out with you guys for the week.".

My wife did exactly what a born again believer should do, she realized that Jesus is with us constantly, that He sees and hears all we do and say, that He indeed does live right here in our home with us, for our bodies are the home of His Holy Ghost.

1 Corinthians 6:15-20
Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.

What?, know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? For two, saith He, shall be one flesh. But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

What?, know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

Anything in your house you need to return or take to the dump? Remember you cannot yard sale the stuff of satan, you have to return it if you bought it in error or take it to the dump. The Lord Jesus, the Messiah, Yeshua, be with you all.

Amen.

God should be on your mind...

The Lord God tells us that we should be constantly thinking of Him, thanking Him, serving Him and doing what is right in His sight. While this is today's thought, starting today, there will be a Bible lesson. What I am attempting to do is introduce new and old Christians to the King James Version of the Bible, the only Authorized versions, the version of 1611. What you will find is that the words of Jesus are in red, the word quoted by God the Father are in purple and those spoken by satan are in a sickly greenish grey. In every instance where the words he and him appear and are referring to one of the three within the trinity, the H is capitalized. When confusion arises over who the Bible is referring too, such as in the writings of Paul, after the he or him, He or Him, in smaller letters within two commas will appear the name of the individual the writer is referring to.

Please bear in mind, while the words of God are in purple and the words of Jesus are in red, this is not for even a moment to indicate that the entire Bible is anything other than God breathed and dictated.

2 Samuel 23:2
The Spirit of the LORD spake by me, and his word was in my tongue.

2 Peter 1:20-21
Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

2 Timothy 3:16
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

This is not an effort to interpret the KJV, this is simply and effort to try and make the KJV a bit easier to understand, without taking anything away from the beauty of the written word of GOD.

This is a three year project and will be accessed separately from the previous Christian thoughts. Your comments will be greatly appreciated. In the not to distant future, God willing, we will be able to make those sections and chapters done, available to any and all for no cost in word perfect 6.1 format.

Please keep us in your prayers and may the Lord our God, Jesus the Messiah, be with you all.
Amen.

Why is a pathological lying, adulterous traitor president?

Or, to put it another way, why is bill clinton president? william jefferson blithe clinton, a man incapable of telling the truth it would seem, is president, because all of the governments of the world belong to satan and satan gives these governments to whom he chooses from those who fall down and worship him. Now that is not to say that if God's people were to get on their knees and really and truly pray and beg for forgiveness for themselves and this country, that God would not override satan and give us one who would lead this once great nation to God instead of away from God. How do we know that satan owns the governments? We know because The Lord Jesus, the Messiah Himself has told us so.

Let us start with Matthew,

Matthew 4:1-11

Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, He was afterward an hungred. And when the tempter came to the Lord, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But Jesus answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Then the devil taketh Jesus up into the holy city, and setteth Him on a pinnacle of the temple, and saith unto Him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

Again, the devil taketh Jesus up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth Him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto Him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered

Now let's look at Luke,

Luke 4:5-8

And the devil, taking Jesus up into an high mountain, shewed unto Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto Jesus, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.

And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

In both Gospels, satan has told the Lord that if He will worship him, satan, that he will give to the Lord all the kingdoms of the world, in Luke satan goes on to say, that he can give them away to whomever he chooses, because they are his. Jesus said no to satan. bill clinton has obviously said yes.

The Lord JESUS, who is the CHRIST, the MESSIAH, GOD ALMIGHTY HIMSELF, be with you all.

Amen.

Census 2000, can you lie...?

We, here in these United States are in the midst of having the every ten year census being taken. But, as some of you have noticed, some of the questions, actually most of them, have nothing to do with the counting of citizens of the country, but have a ton to do with other questions.

The question has been asked; "Pastor, when I find the questions intrusive and believe them to be unconstitutional, can I refuse to answer them and if the government worker insist on and answer, can I, as a Born Again Christian, lie?"

First we need to look at the Scripture that will comprise my answer;

Matthew 22:17-21 and the scribes, in an effort to trap the Lord, asked Jesus:

17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?

18&19 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto Him a penny.

20 And He saith unto them. Whose is this image and superscription?

21 They say unto Jesus, Caesar's. Then saith He unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.

1 Peter 2:13-14

Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.

Does this sound as if I am telling you that you must answer the questions? Does it lead you to believe that you must tell them the truth to those who come to your door with prying questions? I'm not. Quite the contrary, what I am doing is showing you that you are commanded to obey the lawful government, the king, that you must give unto Caesar what is lawfully Caesar's, but are clinton, his minions and his ilk the lawful king? Is he in the place of Caesar? No, God forbid, no he is not.

We here in these United States are lawful residents of one of 50 states, these states make up a voluntary union of states, this voluntary union of states was made up to get the mail delivered, fight wars and provide for a common and trustworthy defense on the border of each state and to help expedite trade amongst other things. By being a resident of a member state, we are both protected by the Constitution and obliged by it in a very few instances, such as being a member of the militia and being counted. This counting is very important for it is by this count that we assure that every state is properly represented in the congress of these united States.

And it is that written Constitution that is the supreme law of the land, Caesar so to speak, clinton, his minions and his ilk are nothing but duly elected public servants, they are bound to the job description of this written constitution and have no further authority. Now what does the constitution say about the census?

Article One Section Two paragraph 3.
"Representatives and direct taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole number of free persons, including those bound to service for a term of years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other persons. The actual enumeration shall be made within three years after the first meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent term of ten years, in such manner as they shall by law direct. ... " For the entire US Constitution

Congress can pass laws effecting how the count is to be taken and the such, but they have no authority to ask you how many toilets you have or if your kid is sickly or not. So, You as a citizen of one of the states that make up the voluntary union of these united States, must tell them how many folks live in your house, for that is commanded by Caesar, the King, the Supreme government authority, the US Constitution. But as for the other things, you have every right to refuse to answer those questions. Now if the person at your door refuses to take that for an answer, tell him or her to get the big yellow book, D-547(M) (7/99) out and tell him or her to turn to page 11-11. That book is entitled "Nonresponse Followup Enumerator Manual" And deals with objections, on page 11-11, it very clearly states, if a person being interviewed says " These questions are none of the governments business." The third answer is "You can skip the questions you find objectionable. Let me start reading them so that you can see what they are like, then skip any you don't like."

Ok, now let's say you get one that is obnoxious and threatens you with jail, police, janet reno etc. Can you lie? Is that one of the options? Do we have biblical authority to lie to an intrusive illegal treacherous government?

Read:

Genesis 12:11-14 And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that Abram said unto Sarai his wife, Behold now, I know that thou art a fair woman to look upon: Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see thee, that they shall say, This is his wife: and they will kill me, but they will save thee alive. Now watch what Abram, who later has his named changed by God to Abraham, tells Sari, whose name God later changes to Sarah, to say:
Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister: that it may be well with me for thy sake; and my soul shall live because of thee. And it came to pass, that, when Abram was come into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair. And Sari did as when was told, she lied, so as to save Abram's life.

David lied:

1 Samuel 21:1-2
Then came David to Nob to Ahimelech the priest: and Ahimelech was afraid at the meeting of David, and said unto him, Why art thou alone, and no man with thee? And David said unto Ahimelech the priest, The king hath commanded me a business, and hath said unto me, Let no man know any thing of the business whereabout I send thee, and what I have commanded thee: and I have appointed my servants to such and such a place. David wasn't on assignment from the king, he was on the run. David was alone, he hadn't left his army encamped elsewhere. David lied. He could have killed the priest and taken the bread and the sword he needed, but instead he choose to lie.

Look, I am not telling you to lie. I am telling you that if this government lackey will not take no for an answer, you will not loose your salvation, by not telling a public servant who is abusing his constitutional authority, the truth, to answers that #1; he has no right to ask and #2; you are under no constitutional mandate to answer.

Refuse first, and then, if he or she will not accept your refusal and threatens to call the cops, his supervisors, the fbi, batf or whatever evil black booted thugs he can think of, tell him to leave your property, pick up the phone, call the police and have this lout arrested. For you see the law and the constitution are on your side and you do not need to lie, for you do not need to answer any questions you find objectionable. You are only required, constitutionally, to tell them the number of folks living under your roof. And then call your congressman and senators and complain loud and long.

The Lord Jesus be with you and may He send someone to rescue our country quickly.

Amen.

The Word of GOD...

God tells us in His Book, the Holy Bible, that we are to contemplate His Words, study His Words and teach His Word as well as live by His Words.

Deuteronomy 11:19
And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

But, how are we to do that, if we do not study His Word, the Holy Bible? We can't, so, starting within the next day or so, the thought will be expanded a bit, we will be looking at 1/720th of the Bible each day. Instead of the Bible part being a part of the previous daily thoughts, that are listed several hundred at a time, making it somewhat difficult to go to just one, without scrolling down through a years worth, each Bible study will be a web page in itself, with an index at the bottom of the front or daily thought page and then on a separate page later. This will all be happening while at the same time we will be changing web addresses. The new address will be: www.Christianpatriot.com since we are not a 501(C)3, we are not eligible for a .org designation. And this ministry will not be a 501(C)3! There is no way the IRS is going to dictate what will or will not be preached on this site! Abortion is murder and clinton is a lying murderer, and no amount of tax exempt status will ever change that.

The Lord be with you all and please keep us in your prayers as we do this, for, while we are stepping out in faith, I have no idea where we are going to get the funds.

God be with and bless you and yours this day, amen.

Touch my sister will ya...

Looking at the direction this country is going, it doesn't seem as though it will be long before the clinton's, the snowe's. Baldacci's and barney frank's of this country will be telling us there is nothing wrong with incest. Already they have condoned and legalized sodomy, homosexuality, lesbianism and adultery. How much longer before they take a ho hum attitude towards incest?

But not to God's people, not now, not a hundred years from now and certainly not back 3200 years ago. Something happened back 3600 years ago that was so important, that God put it in His book as a means of illustrating how brothers are to protect their sisters.

Back before the Israelites were captive in Egypt, back before Moses was given the Ten Commandments and the Law as written in the first five books of the Bible, lived the patriarchs. Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Jacob was the son of Isaac, Isaac was the son of Abraham and Abraham was the man in whom God promised that from him and his decedents would come the Messiah, Jesus. No ordinary family to say the least. Jacob had twelve sons, these twelve sons became the fathers and namesakes of the twelve tribes of Israel. Joseph actually became two tribes and we will discuss that at a later time, but in addition to twelve sons, Jacob had a daughter, a daughter named Dinah.

Genesis 34:1-27

And Dinah the daughter of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land. And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her. And his soul clave unto Dinah the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the damsel, and spake kindly unto the damsel. And Shechem spake unto his father Hamor, saying, Get me this damsel to wife. See, he loved her, so this little bit of premarital consensual sex must be ok, shouldn't it?

And Jacob heard that he had defiled Dinah his daughter: now his sons were with his cattle in the field: and Jacob held his peace until they were come. And Hamor the father of Shechem went out unto Jacob to commune with him. And the sons of Jacob came out of the field when they heard it: and the men were grieved, and they were very wroth, because he had wrought folly in Israel in lying with Jacob's daughter; which thing ought not to be done. And Hamor communed with them, saying, The soul of my son Shechem longeth for your daughter: I pray you give her him to wife. Look here, Shechem wants to do what is right, he wants to marry Dinah and make an honest woman of her, Dinah's brothers and God must be really proud of Shechem, right?

And make ye marriages with us, and give your daughters unto us, and take our daughters unto you. And ye shall dwell with us: and the land shall be before you; dwell and trade ye therein, and get you possessions therein. And Shechem said unto her father and unto her brethren, Let me find grace in your eyes, and what ye shall say unto me I will give. Ask me never so much dowry and gift, and I will give according as ye shall say unto me: but give me the damsel to wife. Now this Shechem certainly seems to be an honorable man, at least in the eyes of the secular society. BUT,

And the sons of Jacob answered Shechem and Hamor his father deceitfully, and said, because he had defiled Dinah their sister: And they said unto them, We cannot do this thing, to give our sister to one that is uncircumcised; for that were a reproach unto us: But in this will we consent unto you: If ye will be as we be, that every male of you be circumcised; then will we give our daughters unto you, and we will take your daughters to us, and we will dwell with you, and we will become one people. But if ye will not hearken unto us, to be circumcised; then will we take our daughter, and we will be gone. Wow, tough conditions, ever man must be circumcised in the community if the king's son is to marry Dinah. Man these sons of Jacob are asking a lot, one serious punishment. But as you can see, Shechem really want Dinah, she was probably the first girl he had ever met with any virtue what so ever, so:

And their words pleased Hamor, and Shechem Hamor's son. And the young man deferred not to do the thing, because he had delight in Jacob's daughter: and he was more honourable than all the house of his father. And Hamor and Shechem his son came unto the gate of their city, and communed with the men of their city, saying, these men are peaceable with us; therefore let them dwell in the land, and trade therein; for the land, behold, it is large enough for them; let us take their daughters to us for wives, and let us give them our daughters. Only herein will the men consent unto us for to dwell with us, to be one people, if every male among us be circumcised, as they are circumcised. Shall not their cattle and their substance and every beast of theirs be ours? only let us consent unto them, and they will dwell with us. And unto Hamor and unto Shechem his son hearkened all that went out of the gate of his city; and every male was circumcised, all that went out of the gate of his city. Look at that, Shechem and his dad, the king, convinced ever man in the city to agree to a bit of snipping, they must have been very convincing, and of course there were no zippers around then, so some men might really not have had any idea of what they were getting into. So, Jacob's sons held their ground and it appears that Dinah's honor has been avenged. Not hardy guys, when some guy defiles your sister, you don't let them off that easy, read on.

And it came to pass on the third day, when they were sore, that two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brethren, took each man his sword, and came upon the city boldly, and slew all the males. And they slew Hamor and Shechem his son with the edge of the sword, and took Dinah out of Shechem's house, and went out. The sons of Jacob came upon the slain, and spoiled the city, because they had defiled their sister. What did they do? They killed every man and every male in the city old enough to be circumcised, that's eight days and over. So, when your best friend asks you to fix him up with your sister, perhaps it would be best to warn him, or have him read these chapters and tell him that you think of your sister as Dinah and your dad as Jacob.

If you have a sister, God made her father the primary protector of her virginity, but, He made you, as her brother, her dad's assistant. Notice two things, one, Shechem didn't force or rape Dinah, and two Dinah's brothers didn't hesitate, they didn't rationalize or try to justify what Dinah and Shechem had done, they went and avenged their sister's virginity by killing the man who had defiled her and not just him, but every male associated with him over 8 days old.

You want to put an end to the corrupt permissive aids ridden society we live in? Abide by God's rules and help your dad protect your sister's virginity. You may never get a citizen of the year award by clinton and his ilk, but you may just hear these words one day. "Well done good and faithful servant." The Lord JESUS, the Messiah be with you all.

Amen.

No, it's not cute, it is IDIOLATRY!

Well the Christ haters at ABC are at it again, seems that their new motto is, "Give the suckers a little truth and a whole bunch of heathen dishonesty". It seems that ABC is following the lead of the pope. The pope goes to Israel, climbs up on the stage, turns around and kisses the feet of a man made statue of some ones idea of what God looked like on the cross. No folks, that's not reverence, it is IDIOLATRY and it is prohibited!

So out comes ABC with a cartoon fable about Jesus, for Easter, designed to get the little ones, mom and dad just rolling in the isle I would guess. ABC's blasphemy was supposed to have a bit of fact in it but their story itself is built around a lie, a supposed miracle that never happened. As if the Lord had not done enough miracles, ABC, has to invent one. Folks, it is called idiolatry!


From ABC's new cartoon.

Read:

Exodus 20:3-5

3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

No exceptions for ABC comedy or the stupidity and ignorance of the pope. No graven images! Do not trifle with God, do not read between the lines of His commandments to justify or water down your sin. If you and your family are following the pope's lead, get on your knees and beg God for His forgiveness. If you and your kids watched the ABC garbage, regardless of whether you laughed or thought it was reverent, you were committing idiolatry and you had best get right with God and you had best read the Ten Commandments to your kids and tell them how wrong ABC and YOU were to even watch it in the first place. Teach your children the truth, teach them that God is to be loved, honored and respected. He is also to be absolutely obeyed! And that means no exceptions to: "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;"

And look at that last part again: " I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;" Do not take this lightly men, for you are trifling with a God who will hold this against your children, your grandchildren, your great grandchildren and your great great grandchildren. And you women who have decided to take over the place of a dad had best heed these words too.

The Lord be with you all.

Amen.

..and when the kids yelled Daddy Help, they cowered in fear...

Are you a man or a coward? What would you do if you were in a zoo, at the beach, on a train or just in a store down town with your kid ans shooting broke out? Two rival gangs of satan worshiping, clinton idolizing scum start shooting it out, you and your kid are caught in the middle, your kid catches a round and cries out, "Daddy help, I'm bleeding, oh daddy, it hurts, help me." Are you going to block your ears and cower in fear like the cowards at the Washington DC zoo? Or are you going to take out your gun and shoot those who are trying to kill your kid, your gift from God, the ones God placed in your care?

I did a sermon not long ago and in it said that if i had been pastoring the Wedgewood Baptist church, unless the first round got me and my elders, there would have been no second round. I take the command of Jesus to feed and care for His sheep very very seriously and if that means using deadly force to protect those He has put in my care, well so be it, I will use deadly force. But, what about you? Man or coward? Father or sperm bank? Return fire or cower under a trash can?

What does God tell us?

Isaac, had two sons, Esau and Jacob, Esau was the elder, but by a bit of deceit Jacob ended up with the elders son's inheritance and blessing, after Isaac died, Jacob took off for his life and was gone 20 years before returning, as he was returning, he heard that Esau was coming to meet him, accompanied by 400 armed and trained men. Did Jacob hide behind a palm tree and let his kids go first and maybe get killed?

Genesis 33:1-3

And Jacob lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, Esau came, and with him four hundred men. And he divided the children unto Leah, and unto Rachel, and unto the two handmaids. And he put the handmaids and their children foremost, and Leah and her children after, and Rachel and Joseph hindermost.

And he passed over before them, and bowed himself to the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother.
Where was Jacob? Out in front, right were a man is suppose to be, not hiding behind a trash can like some cowardly hunk os left wing coward.

When the Israelites came back to Jerusalem and found the city burnt and sacked, after having spent seventy years in captivity. And an overwhelming force of arabs, Syrians and others was trying to prevent their rebuilding efforts, did they do as the cowards in Washington did? Did they hide behind outhouses and let their kids get slaughtered?

Nehemiah 4:13-18

Therefore set I in the lower places behind the wall, and on the higher places, I even set the people after their families with their swords, their spears, and their bows. And I looked, and rose up, and said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, Be not ye afraid of them: remember the Lord, which is great and terrible, and fight for your brethren, your sons, and your daughters, your wives, and your houses.

And it came to pass, when our enemies heard that it was known unto us, and God had brought their counsel to nought, that we returned all of us to the wall, every one unto his work. And it came to pass from that time forth, that the half of my servants wrought in the work, and the other half of them held both the spears, the shields, and the bows, and the habergeons; and the rulers were behind all the house of Judah. They which builded on the wall, and they that bare burdens, with those that laded, every one with one of his hands wrought in the work, and with the other hand held a weapon. For the builders, every one had his sword girded by his side, and so builded. And he that sounded the trumpet was by me.

The cowards in Washington would have hid behind the burnt city and blamed the word, moaned about more sword control and police protection, but not the men in Scripture, they fought back and protected their families.

One day we will all stand before God and you had best be prepared to answer His questions concerning the care of the children He gave you. No where in God's Word does He tell you to stand by and be unarmed and not defend your kids, clinton, reno, the left wing liberal communist, Christ hating, family hating press, congress and senate tells you that, but God tells you to protect your wife and kids as you would yourself! Read all of Ezra and Nehimiah.

May the Lord Jesus give you the strength to do what is right in His eyes and turn your back from the devil worshiping government and press.

Amen.

Elian;

Scripture tells us many things about the Elian fiasco, first Scripture teaches us that a child belongs to his father. For God will often times refers to children as, the seed of the father. We also learn that God will often use the heathen to do His work, who but a heathen would do what godless federal thugs, criminals with badges, did last Saturday morning? And the third thing we must keep in mind is this:

Isaiah 55:8-9
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

So sayth God Almighty.

Elian is back where God put him in the first place, with his dad, and once again, the Lord thy God has had to use the heathen, the pagan god worshiping hell bond slime to do His work, why, because we who are sealed and redeemed with His blood, would not do what needed to be done, for even the heathen has a place on this corrupt earth, it is to do the work the Lord would not have His own to do, the dirty work, the work that only slime would do. Bill Clinton, Janet Reno, their minions and their ilk were made for such sewer cleaning chores.

Praise God that Elian is back in the care of he whom Almighty God placed him in the first place. The Lord Jesus be with you all, may He bless you and keep you safe from those whom He has to use to clean the sewers.
Amen.

One more reason to know that Jesus is the Messiah.

Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? For He, The Messiah, the sacrifice, the Lamb of God, shall grow up before Him, God the Father, as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: He (Jesus) hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him, As a tender plant, one sinless, no beauty, not attractive, this is a picture of Jesus after the Romans and the Jews got done with Him.

He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from Him; He was despised, and we esteemed Him not. Surely He hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed. The next time you're in a grocery store pick up a package of the Jewish unleavened bread they use at the Passover, look at the stripes on it, are they not reminiscent of the Lord's back?

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all. Only God could atone for our sins.

He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth: He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so He openeth not His mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: (Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged Him. And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on His head, and they put on Him a purple robe, and said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote Him with their hands. Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto the jews, Behold, I bring Him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in Him. Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man! When the chief priests therefore and officers saw Him, they cried out, saying, Crucify Him, crucify Him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye Him, and crucify Him: for I find no fault in Him.

The Jews answered him. We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because He made Himself the Son of God. When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid; And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer. Then saith Pilate unto Him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify Thee, and have power to release Thee?

Jesus answered. Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.
John 19:1-11)

And who shall declare His generation? for He was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was He stricken. On either side of the Lord hung criminals, (And with Him they crucify two thieves; the one on His right hand, and the other on His left. And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And He was numbered with the transgressors. Mark 15:27-28)

And He made His grave with the wicked, and with the rich in His death; because He had done no violence, neither was any deceit in His mouth. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him; He hath put Him to grief: when thou shalt make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand. He shall see of the travail of His soul, and shall be satisfied: by His knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for He shall bear their iniquities. (Isaiah 53:1-11)

Yes, Jesus is the Messiah and one would have to be blind to deny it. For no man could fulfill the prophecies written by Isaiah 750 years earlier. So, when you seek the truth, don't look to a rabbi, priest or preacher, look to the Word of God. You and only you are responsible for your salvation. The Lord Jesus be with you all and may He bless and guide you and yours this day.
Amen.

Easter, the most sacred and holy day of the year.

That which occurred on Easter day 28 Ad is what separates Born Again Christians from all others on earth. For on Easter day in the year 28 Ad, the Lord Jesus, the Christ, the Messiah, arose from the grave, arose from the dead, after having been dead for three days. While every other religion on earth worships dead mens bones or a fallen angel, we who are Born Again, worship the Living God, the God who so loved us that He came to earth as a man named Jesus, went up on the cross and became our Passover Lamb, bled and died for us and three days later, arose from the dead, proving that He is God and that we who believe on Him will also defeat death and be raised again to live for all eternity with Him in heaven.

John 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

JOHN Chapters 19,20 &21

19 The Passover Lamb:

Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged Him. And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on His head, and they put on Jesus a purple robe, and said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote the Lord with their hands.

Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto the jews, Behold, I bring Jesus forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in Him. Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man! When the chief priests therefore and officers saw the messiah, they cried out, saying, Crucify Him, crucify Him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye Him, and crucify Him: for I find no fault in Him. The Jews answered Pilate, We have a law, and by our law He ought to die, because He made Himself the Son of God. When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid; and went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Who art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer. Then saith Pilate unto Jesus, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?

Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered Me unto thee hath the greater sin. And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release Him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar. When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha. And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King! But they cried out, Away with Him, away with Him, crucify Him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.

Then Pilate delivered Jesus unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led Him away. And Jesus bearing His cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: Where they crucified Him, and two other with Him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst. And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS. This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin. Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that He said, I am King of the Jews. Pilate answered, saying, What I have written I have written.

Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took His garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also His coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout. They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.

Now there stood by the cross of Jesus His mother, and His mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus therefore saw His mother, and the disciple standing by, whom He loved, Jesus saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith He to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home. After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to His mouth. When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said, It is finished: and He bowed His head, and gave up the ghost. The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with Jesus. But when they came to Jesus, and saw that He was dead already, they brake not his legs: But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water. And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe. For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken. And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.

And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus. And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight. Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury. Now in the place where Jesus was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid. There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews' preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand.

20: The Resurrection

On the first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre. Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid Him. Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre. So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in. Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, and the napkin, that was about Jesus' head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed. For as yet they knew not the scripture, that He must rise again from the dead.

Then the disciples went away again unto their own home. But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre, And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid Him.

And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing Him to be the gardener, saith unto Him, Sir, if thou have borne Him hence, tell me where thou hast laid Him, and I will take Him away. And Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto Him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master. Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that He had spoken these things unto her. Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. And when He had so said, He shewed unto them His hands and His side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord. Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.

And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost: Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained. But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into His side, I will not believe. And after eight days again His disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. Then saith Jesus to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold My hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into My side: and be not faithless, but believing.

And Thomas answered and said unto Him, My Lord and my God. Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen Me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through His name.

21: One of the appearances

After these things Jesus shewed Himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed He Himself.

There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of His disciples. Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing. But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus. Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No. And He said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes. Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea. And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes.

As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread. Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught. Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken. Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask Him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord. Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise. This is now the third time that Jesus shewed Himself to His disciples, after that He was risen from the dead.

So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto Jesus, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto Jesus, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. He saith unto Peter the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because Jesus said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto Him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not. This spake He, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when Jesus had spoken this, He saith unto him, Follow me. Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee? Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do? Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou Me.

Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true. And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

So, while the others wait for heaven only knows what, let us rejoice for what the Lord has done and for the fact that we are his and will spend eternity not in condemnation, but in the Light of the Lord and with Him for ever,
amen.

The Lord Jesus be with you and yours this ressurrection day, this day that we call Easter, this day inwhich we celebrate the ressurection of the Messiah.

Jesus is the Messiah, the Christ!

For King David came from Bethlehem

1 Samuel 16:1-13

1. And the LORD said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons.
2. And Samuel said, How can I go? if Saul hear it, he will kill me. And the LORD said, Take an heifer with thee, and say, I am come to sacrifice to the LORD.
3. And call Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will shew thee what thou shalt do: and thou shalt anoint unto me him whom I name unto thee.
4. And Samuel did that which the LORD spake, and came to Bethlehem. And the elders of the town trembled at his coming, and said, Comest thou peaceably?
5. And he said, Peaceably: I am come to sacrifice unto the LORD: sanctify yourselves, and come with me to the sacrifice. And he sanctified Jesse and his sons, and called them to the sacrifice.
6. And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the LORD's anointed is before him.
7. But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.
8. Then Jesse called Abinadab, and made him pass before Samuel. And he said, Neither hath the LORD chosen this.
9. Then Jesse made Shammah to pass by. And he said, Neither hath the LORD chosen this.
10. Again, Jesse made seven of his sons to pass before Samuel. And Samuel said unto Jesse, The LORD hath not chosen these.

11. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all thy children? And he said, There remaineth yet the youngest, and, behold, he keepeth the sheep. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him: for we will not sit down till he come hither.
12. And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he.
13. Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.

And then the prophet of the Lord, Micah said:

Micah 5:2

But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

And Jesus was born in Bethlehem.

Matthew 2:1-6

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is He that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship Him.

When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,
And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.

Yes, Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah and as we approach the greatest holiday in the world, Easter, the day celebrating His resurrection from the dead, it is important that we focus on that very fact. For Jesus, the Messiah, is God.

I've said this before and I'm going to say it again, separate yourselves from non believers, heathens, for the time has come to understand that you can not have it both ways, you can not follow the ways of the world and be part of Christ. If you do not have a good fellowship church, find one! You need the strength of fellowship and that fellowship can only be found with other Born Again believers. The Lord Jesus was not a loner, nor were any of the Apostles. You can not hang around in a liberal or liberal leaning church and find the fellowship you need, even the Lord Jesus needed to weed out the weak so as to have only strong believers around Him when the moment came for His torture and death.

John 6:53-69 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.

These things said He in the synagogue, as He taught in Capernaum. Many therefore of His disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?

When Jesus knew in Himself that His disciples murmured at it, He said unto them, Doth this offend you? What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where He was before? It is the Spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are life. But there are some of you that believe not.

For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him. And He said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto Me, except it were given unto him of my Father. From that time many of His disciples went back, and walked no more with Him.

Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.

Notice that when the chips were down and the time had come, Jesus choose to have fellowship with solid Born Again believers, not wishy washy watered down believers. Never did the Lord surround Himself with heathens, He ministered to them, HE had lunch with them, but never did He spend the night with them or invite them to have dinner with Him at His place.

Are you a stronger Christian than Christ? Of course not, so follow the lead of the Lord, find fellowship with solid believers, separate yourself from the weak and watered down Christian, from the heathen and find fellowship with those who have given up their lives for the Lord and their wives and families.

If you are in a solid Bible preaching church, stay there. If you're in a weak watered down church, or not in a church at all, go find a solid Bible preaching one. Water better time to resurrect your spiritual life than Easter?

The Lord Jesus be with you and bless you this day.

First the first 4,318 years of earths existence.

6,318 years ago, God created the earth, the heavens and everything in and on them. Now many have written about those first years and most have embellished them into billion of years. Why do men lie so? Why do men like Darwin and others try so hard to try and make you belief that the earth is so much older than it is? It's kind of simple really, and the Lord Jesus has summed it up rather nicely for us in the Gospel as recorded by Luke.

Luke 20:9-15

Then began Jesus to speak to the people this parable; A certain man, GOD, planted a vineyard, and let it forth to husbandmen, Adam and all man after him, and went into a far country, heaven, for a long time. And at the season He, GOD, sent a servant, the first of the prophets, to the husbandmen, that they should give Him, God through his prophet, of the fruit of the vineyard: but the husbandmen beat him, the prophet, and sent him away empty. And again He, GOD, sent another servant: and they beat him also, and entreated him shamefully, and sent him away empty. And again He sent a third: and they wounded him also, and cast him out.

Then said the Lord of the vineyard, GOD, What shall I do? I will send My beloved Son, JESUS,: it may be they will reverence Him when they see Him. But when the husbandmen saw Him, JESUS, they reasoned among themselves, saying, This is the Heir: come, let us kill Him, that the inheritance may be ours. So they cast Him, JESUS, the SON of GOD, out of the vineyard, and killed him.

And so ends the history of the first 4,318 years. But, look at the Question that the Lord then ask; What therefore shall the Lord of the vineyard do unto them?

And in the very next verses, the Lord Jesus, the Messiah, God Himself, answers that question. For those of you who have not surrendered your lives to Him, read this carefully and ponder your end, while for you who are Saved, rejoice in that fact, for you are saved from this, not predication of the future, but guarantee of the future.

Luke 20:16-18

He, GOD ALMIGHTY, shall come and destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the vineyard to others. And when they heard it, they said, God forbid. And Jesus beheld them, and said, What is this then that is written, The Stone, JESUS, which the builders, all men who are unsaved, rejected, the Same, JESUS, is become the head of the corner? Whosoever shall fall upon that Stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. See Psalm 118:22 and all of Daniel 2: to understand Daniel 2: 34& 45.

You come broken before the Lord asking and begging for forgiveness and you are Saved, but those who don't the Stone, JESUS, will crush!

The Lord be with you and open your eyes this day. Go not by mans laws, go by God's word.

And for the Christian patriot community of Dade county, Florida, I pray for peace and calm. For the Lord thy God gave the boy to his dad, where the dad is should be the boy as well.

I need to spend some time with men.

Every once and a while I find myself in need of spending some time with men, real men, not today's cry babies that send their daughters and wives off to fight wars and protect the streets, but real men. The kind of men who 60 years ago left home and family to go stop the horrors of Hitler and Tojo.

So. Today I may be off to New Hampshire to have lunch with men who commanded and manned US Navy Destroyers during World War Two. Men who saw a horror unfolding in another part of the world, left the safety of their homes, took up arms and went off to war to end that horror. Men who would never have stood by and watched their babies be slaughtered in the womb, men who would have stopped that slaughter regardless of their personal safety.

I so tired of today's cowards, males who go out drop their pants get a slut pregnant and then stand by in the shadows and watch the baby get slaughtered to cover up their sins and their responsibilities. I don't know if Eric Rudolph is guilty of bombing and abortion mill and killing a cop who used his badge to protect the murdering scum called the abortionist and the nurse who used her skills not to save infants, but to kill them, cut them up and package their little bodies and parts to sell for research, candles and animal fodder, or not. But if he did, then he would feel right at home at this lunch, for these are men who saw an atrocity, put personal safety aside and took the action necessary to end the slaughter and save a life. Just as Eric is accused of doing.

But what would you expect from a nation whose fathers send their daughters off to fight wars, send their wives off to protect the streets? We are no longer a nation of men, we are a nation of cowards, and I just need to get away from the name calling cowards for a while every once and a while and go have a bit of time with men, real men, men who did what was right, not what was legal in the eyes of a corrupt government, but right in the sight of God. And since I can't go to Nevada or New Mexico, I guess it may be new Hampshire.

Eric, if you did blow up that abortion mill, then I will continue to pray that God will reward you for having the courage to do what was right, for having the courage to save one little one. One baby trapped in the womb of a woman who would rather kill God's gift than care for he or she. God be with and bless you my brother and for those cowards who father and then stand on the sidelines and watch while that little one is destroyed, I say "The Lord deal with you"! And for those who twist God's word to cover up for and ignore the three million infants murdered in the USA each year while they sleep in the supposed safety of their mothers wombs, I say "The Lord Rebuke thee!".

Zechariah 3:1-5

And He shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him. And the LORD said unto Satan, The LORD rebuke thee, O Satan; even the LORD that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?

Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel. And God answered and spake unto those that stood before Him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto Joshua God said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment. And I said, Let them set a fair mitre upon his head. So they set a fair mitre upon his head, and clothed Joshua with garments. And the angel of the LORD, Jesus, stood by.

You can bet the comparison of Joshua is not to males in the USA today! The guys at the lunch in New Hampshire maybe, but not to those who stand by and watch their babies killed, who send their daughters off to be in the military, to those who let their wives be cops , soldiers and traps for babies in the womb brought to abortionist!

Elian Gonzalez's father, Juan left Cuba to come to a hostile USA, unarmed and with only his wife and infant son to reclaim God's gift to him his son, Elian. And here in the USA, we have a bunch of pro abortion scum preventing the boy from being returned to he whom God gave him to in the first place. Let the Lord Jesus help Juan get his son back.

I'm amazed at the way the Lord is using the heathens in the clinton administration and the lesbian in the Justice Department to do His work. Could it be because the pulpit has become so watered down in this country that they, instead of looking at God's word about what to do with this boy, are listening to and looking to the petey jennings of the world for guidance and leadership?

The Lord be with you, may He give you the courage to be a man and find the courage within you to fight for what is right in His sight.

Jews and Muslims, two peas in a pod.

Oh, I can hear you all the way to here, "oops, the pastor has gone off the deep end, the pressure of evangelizing has caused him to loose his marbles," . No, I haven't lost my mind, for in the Book of Revelation, God tells John of three different spiritual groups, there are the liberal small c Christians, folks who call themselves Christians, but aren't for they are not born again, but simply trying to work their way into heaven. Ones like the Methodist, United Church of Christ, Roman Catholics, Greek Orthodox, Episcopalians and even, sad to say some within the more conservative denominations like the Assemblies of God and Christian and Missionary Alliance. These are the ones the Messiah refers to as the Church of Laodicea, the ones neither hot nor cold, the ones HE invites, but if they don't come, He will vomit out of his mouth

Then there are those that the Lord calls His church of Philadelphia, those are the Born Again Christians, the ones that the Lord Himself will come to the heavens above earth and shout for. Raising the dead Believers and taking those Believers who still alive in what is called by Paul as the gathering and what we commonly refer to as the Rapture. The very instant that starts the worse seven years ever, the seven years of absolute hell on earth for those that are left behind, the seven years that culminates with the battle of Armageddon, the destruction of everything on earth, and the imprisonment of satan.

The third group is what the Lord refers to as the synagogue of satan, these are those who study the word of God, the old Testament and refuse to believe on and accept the Lord Jesus as the Messiah. First let us look at what the Lord says:

Revelation 2:9
I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
Who is the Lord talking about? Let's go back a bit.

Matthew 5:17
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
Here, the Lord is telling us that He has come to fulfill the prophecies that explain the first coming of the Messiah, the coming as the sacrificial Lamb, the Lamb of God who taketh away the sins of the world.

Which we know Jesus was and is, for John the Baptist has witnessed to it:

John 1:29-36
The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. This is He of whom I said, "After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for He was before me." And I knew Him not: but that He should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.

And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon Him. And I knew Him not: but God the Father, He, that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, "Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, the same is He which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost." And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.

Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples; And looking upon Jesus as He walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!

So, to this point, we have Jesus telling us that He has come not to destroy the law, but to fulfill the prophecies of the first coming of the Messiah, the sacrificial Lamb of God, and John telling us that He heard God tell Him that Jesus is His Son and is therefore, the Messiah.

Now, here is were we see that Jews and Muslims are two peas in a pod, that they help both make up the synagogue of satan.

Luke 16:29-31
Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And Abraham said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

Now, the Jews and the Muslims trace their ancestry back to Abraham, they both claim to be the children of Abraham, they both claim to study and believe in the Old Testament, yet, even when Jesus arose from the dead, they still refused to believe, even though every prophecy of the first coming of the messiah was fulfilled by Jesus, they still refuse to believe, for they are the ones who absolutely deny the deity of Jesus , they are therefore the two key members of the synagogue of satan. Two peas in a pod. The only two religions on earth, other than the those who worship satan openly, who, as part of their religion, deny Jesus as Lord and Saviour.

If you are a Jew or Muslim, pray that the Lord will send His Holy Spirit to help you see the light and become a Born Again Christian, for if you continue on your foolish course, you condemn yourself to everlasting hell. For when your cleric tells you that "Jesus is not the Christ, and that you can take that to the bank", I'll tell you this, if you believe him or her, it is not to the bank you'll be taking it, but to hell everlasting hell.

If you are one of those liberal members of a Christian so called church that is nothing but a social club, one who is listed above, one who denies the absolute necessity of being Born Again to find salvation, then you too must get on your knees and ask for help, for it is your salvation, not mine that is in question. For when your liberal preacher gets up on the pulpit and he or she preaches, "God so loved the word that He gave His only begotten Son" to you, remember, that's only half what Jesus said, the other half which he or she refuses to preach and will lead you right into hell along side the rest of the Jesus denying heathens is this:

John 3:16-18
For God so loved the world, that God gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son Jesus into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Jesus might be saved. He that believeth on Jesus is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Your salvation, your responsibility, you make the choice, heaven with Jesus or hell with satan, but that decision is for all eternity, so make it carefully and make it today.

Forgive! Or else?

Probably one of the most difficult parts of being a born again Christian, a devout follower of the Messiah Jesus is forgiveness and forgiving.

The Messiah Himself has told us:

Matthew 6:9-15

Forgive!

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Or else!

For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

As we all know, it is easier to follow a leader who leads by example, rather than the leader who says "do as I say, not as I do." Clinton, is one that says "do as I say, not as I do." and for that reason he is despised by many.

But, the Messiah, God in the flesh, Jesus, lead by example, for while the Lord hung on a cross, He said:

Luke 23:34 ... "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do."

Janet Reno is the embodiment of everything that I find evil and despise, she demonstrates by her every action that she in turn despises and hates everything that I hold dear. While I am a dedicated bond servant of the Lord Jesus she is anti Christ, while I honor and respect and love the baby in the womb, she like olympia snowe has nothing but contempt and outright hatred for the infant within the womb and seems to be on a personal crusade to have as many killed as she personally can, to use the full force of her office to protect those who slaughter the infant in the womb and hunt down and persecute any and all that even utter a word of opposition against those heartless satan worshiping murders.. While I have a deep love and respect for the Constitution of these United States, she, her minions and her ilk are just as dedicated to communism, fascism and socialism of any and all kinds. But remember what the Lord Jesus has told us:

Matthew 5:44-45

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

The other night while watching the news, I saw and interview with Miss Reno, as I watched her acting as if she actually cared for the welfare of Elian Gonzalez, I couldn't help but notice what Parkinsons disease has done to her and is continuing to do to her, and I felt pity for her, and yes, I even said a prayer for her, I asked God to touch this woman and to open her eyes before it was to late. I even looked at the screen and said within that prayer that I forgave her for the evil she has done to me.

But, look carefully at what the Lord has taught us, He has taught us to forgive those who despitefully use us. He tells us to turn the other cheek when one strikes us. Never does He command us to forgive those who harm others. I can not forgive Janet Reno for what she did to the 87 men women and children at Mount Carmel, I can not forgive her for the hundred plus thousand babies that where ninety five percent delivered and then ruthlessly killed through the procedure called partial birth abortion, I can not forgive her for the evil she has bestowed upon Christians and Patriots throughout this country with her secret police agencies, her snipers, and her legions of lawyers. Nor does God command me to, He has only told us to forgive those who despitefully use us, as individuals

Yes, I forgive Janet Reno for the harm she has done to me and my wife and my children, but only God can forgive her for the deaths at Waco, the slaughter and protection of the slaughters of the baby in the womb, and her sins against God Himself with her lesbian lifestyle, but alas, my forgiveness would do her no good on these issues anyhow, she and only she can ask for God's forgiveness for her crimes against me and others and her sins against God Almighty.

Today I will pray that Miss Reno will turn from her horrible ways and embrace the Lord and His teachings, but I will more reverently pray that any of you who read this and are unsaved will turn from your ways and follow the One who lead by example and shed His blood for your salvation rather then the lead of clinton, snowe, their minions and their ilk.

Before I close, let me just add this, while it is really hard to forgive and pray for the likes of Reno, clinton and snowe, it is even harder to pray for those who have lead church of Laodicea Christians to the synagogue of satan, led them from being lukewarm Christians to judism, muslim, new age and others that deny and teach denial of the Messiah.

The Lord Jesus be with you all.

And God said "Let us make man in our image."

One God, three persons, so what is so difficult to understand? I always wonder at those who tell me they believe in God, like Muslims and Jews, yet they don't believe in Jesus, because they don't believe in the trinity.

Let's think about that for a moment, they claim to believe in the God of the Old testament, but not the God of the New Testament.

What Hogwash!

How can one claim to accept the writings and teachings of the Old Testament and the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, but not Jesus, it is absolute hypocrisy, as a matter of fact it is worse, it is a lie. You can not study the Old Testament and not come to realize that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, God in flesh.

But, why do so many persist in claiming to believe in and accept the God of the Old Testament, yet turn from and deny Jesus? Kind of simple actually, Jesus told us why, first, in: Matthew 6:24 The Lord Jesus, the Messiah, the one the Jews and Muslims will go to hell for denying, tells us: No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Before I comment, read a bit more of what the Messiah said:

Matthew 6:1-8

Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

And one more;

John 3:16-21

For God so loved the world, that God gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through His Son Jesus might be saved. He that believeth on Jesus is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God, Jesus.

And this is the condemnation, that Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the Light, neither cometh to the Light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the Light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

The bottom line is this. Muslims and Jews deny Jesus, not out of ignorance, but out of a desire to continue to live in and do their sins, the saddest part is that they are taking their children and wives straight to hell with them, and you know what, they know it and they do not care, they will continue to deny the Messiah, yet continue to claim that they know and love God the Father, yet, they can read Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Just as easily as you and I can, so just who do they think God was talking to when He said OUR? The sad truth is, they know and, they admit that God is referring to the other two parts of God, the Messiah and the Holy Spirit.

No, they deny Jesus not out of ignorance, but out of a love more for money and the things of this world than God!

Place your faith and trust on Jesus, not man, don't worry about clinton, reno and their paid killers in the federal secret police, worry about God.

In Matthew 10:28 God tells us: And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Look, if you believe on the Lord and know what awaits you in eternity, if you are one of His, and, if clinton sends his minions to kill you, so what? Think about it, where are you going, what are you worried about? Look forward to the Lord's return and look forward to being with Him don't worry about the child murderers in the administration or those he dispatches to spill innocent blood to appease his god, let the Lord deal with him and them, you just keep you eyes on Jesus and worry about serving Him.

The Lord Jesus be with you if you are His, and if you're not His, well the choice is yours, for yes, the Messiah shed His blood so that you could be part of Him, but that choice is up to you and you alone. Spend eternity with the Light or spend eternity with darkness, you soul, your salvation, your choice. For you see, Jesus gave you the ability and the freedom to choose and He, is that Light.

But, don't lie about it, try for once to be honest with yourself.

Oh ye scribes, ye hypocrites:

What was the Lord Jesus talking about when He verbally attacked the scribes, the lawyers?

I was just watching Juan Miguel Gonzalez live on television from Dulles International airport in Washington, DC. While I have no doubt that his speech was carefully scripted for him by Cuban psychologists it was telling and touching none the less. One of the most obvious and telling is things that Juan came from and was speaking to a Godless people. If I thought for even one moment that Mr. Gonzalez had written the speech himself, I couldn't say this, but since I am absolutely sure it was scripted under the watchful eye of one of Castro's minions, I know that it was carefully scripted to get as many digs in as possible while at the same time making a case for the boys return to his dad.

That said, one of the most, if not the most telling part of the speech is that both governments and peoples are considered Godless by who ever wrote the speech. For the one thing that was lacking was this: God gave Elian to his dad, not those relatives in Miami or to those making political and financial gain off of him.

What was the Lord Jesus talking about when He verbally attacked the scribes, the lawyers?

Matthew 23:13-19

But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!

Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold? And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty. Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?

And:
Luke 11:45-52

Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus saying thou reproachest us also. And Jesus said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers. Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your fathers killed them. Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres. Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute: That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation; From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.

Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.

Both of the Clintons are lawyers and scribes, while they yell about Castro claiming Elian is the property of the Cuban government, Hillary Clinton's book "it takes a village" condones and pursues that goal for these united States. While they claim Cuba rules children's lives, this same Clinton and his minions in the congress and education bureaucracies want to start children at three years old in the public school system so as to have them totally from ages three to eighteen.

Read this carefully Clintons (both of them), Snowe, Collins, and the entire Democratic delegation to the senate are every bit as communist as Castro is. And if that is not true, then let them sue me for slander. But it is true and you and I know it. We need to get back to God and away from Clinton and his minions, his ilk and fellow satan worshipers, we need to replace these child killing abortion supporting murders with men and women of integrity.

How can anyone in their right mind think that this young boy could be better off in a communist country under clinton than a communist country under castro? If the boy is going to be raised in a communist satan worshiping anti Christ country, than at least let the boy be raised with his father, not a couple of distant relatives in Miami that think that clinton and his brand of communist atheism is better than castro's.

God gave the boy Elian to his dad Juan Michel Gonzalez. Not hillary and bill clinton! Thank GOD! For the way that clinton looks at Chelsea, would you let him near one of your kids? God forbid! Would you let hillary of olympia snowe or susan collins near one of your daughters? God forbid!

Fathers, stop what you're doing and ask God to intervene, as Jesus to put this boy where He would

have him. For like you and me and our kids, we are His and we are here to serve Him and be where He wants us to be. But also ask God to protect that boy from the influences of those who while claiming to love children, see nothing wrong with delivering a baby to the point where all but the very top of its head is outside the womb and then sticking a pair of scissors into his scull, grabbing his brains, twisting them, extracting them, placing them on ice and selling them to the high bidder. Both of the clintons support this barbaric form of infant slaughter. And for those of you living and voting in Maine, so do both of your United State Senators, Republicans Olympia Snowe, now as the Queen of infanticide and her fellow senator and very close friend republican Susan Collins. Both Democratic congressmen John Baldacci, a Roman Catholic from Bangor, representing the northern half of the state and atheist Tom Allen, the Democrat representing the first congressional district, the southern half of the state also support with their vote and your tax dollars this barbaric murder.

Yet, the clinton's snowe, baldacci, collins and allen would have you believe that they care about all children and only want what is best for Elian. They are scribes, hypocrites and liars. And allen, why he couldn't even be bothered to spend the entire day with his oldest daughter the day of her marriage, no, congressman allen had to run off to Washington to do the work of his high priest, clinton. And cast a futile vote against clinton's impeachment.

May the Lord thy God bless you and never let you know the pain that Mr. Gonzalez has been forced to endure by these two corrupt communist governments. You might want to take notice of how quiet the UN has been throughout all this, heaven forbid that the UN should involve itself in the internal affairs of two staunch communist governments. For it is called kidnaping.

Dads, pray for Elian and his dad.

It is time that we think long and hard about what this corrupt degenerate president and his lesbian attorney general are doing to this little boy and his dad. Appealing to the president in hopes that he would think like a dad are futile, for to look at him as he gazes at his daughter tells you that he knows little or nothing of the love a dad is suppose to have for his child.

It is you out there who must pray and ask for God's intervention, for the evil in Havana and Washington combined with the evil in Miami and the television studios is destroying this child, his dad and their relationship, but God can put together what satan's minions named above are trying to rip asunder.

God gave Elian to his dad and his mom, not an aunt or uncle in Miami, not clinton or castro, their minions, ilk and fellow satan worshipers. God never asked for nor needed the pro child killing ilk of televison anchors to put their two cents in, nor would He go to the b. gumbles of the world. Unbelievable, b. gumble forgoes his own family for a roll in the hay with a blonde harlot and he expects us to listen to him about what is best for Elian and his family. Clinton shacks up with girls his daughters age and looks at Chelsea more as a man looks at a piece of meat on a hook than a dad looks at a daughter he loves and whose virginity he protects.

God gave Elian to his dad and mom, the castro appointed man made courts took Elian from his dad and gave him to his mom and now the satan's minion's within the clinton administration, the lesbian headed justice department, the congress and the courts are trying to destroy this boy and God's rules even further. We need to pray for God's intervention and protection for the boy and his dad and God's justice on those who are fighting to keep them apart.

Now, turn with me to:

Exodus 34:8-14

And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped. And Moses said, If now I have found grace in Thy sight, O Lord, let my Lord, I pray Thee, go among us; for it is a stiff-necked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for thine inheritance.

And God said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which thou art shall see the work of the LORD: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with thee. Observe thou that which I command thee this day: behold, I drive out before thee the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite. Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest it be for a snare in the midst of thee: But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves:

For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:

Let us stop being stiff-necked, let us throw down the temples of false gods within our hearts, the false gods of the clintons, the castros, the renos, olympia snowes, franks, and the homosexuals, the abortionists, the pornographers, the family destroying gods of the gumbels and the networks, let us get on our knees and go to the only true God, the Living God, the God of our forefathers, the Messiah, the Christ, Jesus for Abraham, Isaac and Israel are our fathers, for we are those that are circumcised in the heart, not of the flesh, let us pray and ask God Almighty, the Creator of heaven and earth to step in and rescue the boy and his dad.

Colossians 2:10-14

And ye are complete in Jesus, which is the head of all principality and power: In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: Buried with Jesus in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with Him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised Him from the dead.

And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath He quickened together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to His cross;

For if we don't, who will? Will God listen to the unsaved? To the jew, the muslim, the devout catholic, the liberal Christ Blood denying so called Christians? NO!, God hears only those who are His, the Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb, Christians. Let us go to the Father as sons, let us go to the Father through the holy name of His Son, our Lord, our Saviour Jesus. Let us not go humbly, let us go with the purpose of fathers who love their children and understand the hurt, the pain, of being separated from our children for even a day.

John 3:3 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

John 3:18 He that believeth on the Son of God, Jesus is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God, Jesus!

Oh Lord God of all creation and creations, lift up Thy mighty right arm and deliver this boy back to the father that Thou gave him to in the first place, use Thy mighty powers, strength and right arm to prevent those who serve satan from coming between this boy, his dad and You. In the sacred name of Your only begotten Son, our Lord, our Saviour, our Messiah, Jesus, we pray. Amen.

The Lord Jesus be with you all.

Elain's dad has fought casto, the communists in Cuba, the communists here in the congress, senate, administration and in the streets of the USA. He has fought the clinton administration and is now risking his life to come to this country, a country where the president and his lesbian attorney general, called 87 Americans outside of Wacko, Texas a cult and then had them destroyed, slowly, painfully then burnt beyond recognizion.

I have a ton of respect for this man, for he has come to this country where men won't even cross the street to save their babies from an abortionist, to rescue his son from a society that has become so sick, so perverted that they turn to perverts like the snowes, renos and clintons instead of God. Mr. Gonzalas deserves our respect and prayers.

One God and only one God!

Read, understand, and ask the Lord thy God to allow the Holy Spirit to explain to you the Scripture below, for there is but one God, God Almighty, creator of heaven and earth and all things in and on them.

Deuteronomy 13:1-18

If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear Him, and keep His commandments, and obey His voice, and ye shall serve Him, and cleave unto Him.

And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee.

If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers; Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth; Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is among you. If thou shalt hear say in one of thy cities, which the LORD thy God hath given thee to dwell there, saying, Certain men, the children of Belial, are gone out from among you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which ye have not known; Then shalt thou inquire, and make search, and ask diligently; and, behold, if it be truth, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought among you; Thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is therein, and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword. And thou shalt gather all the spoil of it into the midst of the street thereof, and shalt burn with fire the city, and all the spoil thereof every whit, for the LORD thy God: and it shall be an heap for ever; it shall not be built again. And there shall cleave nought of the cursed thing to thine hand:

That the LORD may turn from the fierceness of His anger, and shew thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers; when thou shalt hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep all his commandments which I command thee this day, to do that which is right in the eyes of the LORD thy God.

What's it mean? It means, that if you are not a right wing fundamental Bible believing born again washed in the blood of the Lamb Christian, get that way. Right now! If Christianity to you is not a life style, but only a religion, you need to get on your knees and convince the Lord to forgive you and let you into His family, for if your not part of God, you are part of satan.

For those of us who are Born Again, Saved Christians, this time on earth is as close to hell as we ever come, for after this time on earth, we will spend all eternity in heaven with the Lord Jesus. But for those who are not Born Again, unsaved, this time on earth is their heaven, for upon their death, they will spend eternity in the pits of hell, in outer darkness with never ending and unbelievable pain and torment, for ever, for there is no end to eternity!

Your soul, your choice! God condemns no man to hell, man condemns himself by rejecting Jesus, intentionally or unintentionally, makes no difference, for rejection is rejection and rejection of Jesus gets you an eternity in hell.

The Lord thy God be with thee this day.

What if Elian were your son?

Well, once again a young six year old boy has made the news. Not because of something he did, but because of the tragedy in his life. Elain is being ripped asunder by ‘loving' relatives. An uncle and an aunt that claim to love him, a government that can not figure out what to do because they have no idea of what is right, they only know how to react to polls.

Elain's Miami family seems to be more interested in being on television more interested in having petey jennings and the rest of the evil mainstream media beating on their door steps then what is best or even good for the boy. First it was a puppy, now he has a bunny, but what about love? Is anyone giving this boy love?

Look at reno, clinton and the politicians, while they claim they do what is best for the boy, they can't for they have no understanding of what is right or best for the boy, for there is no love in their hearts and no knowledge of God in their lives. They only react to polls and this time the polls are right down the middle. In the mean time, the boy is being ripped apart.

How could this have been averted, how could Elian have been born into a loving household rather than a politically correct one where mom goes her way to satisfy her empty lust and dad goes the other way to do the same, instead of putting God and Elian first, and keeping their lust to themselves?

Well, their preacher, priest, rabbi or whatever could have preached God's word instead of Castro's and Clinton's. Or at the very least, that preacher could have used Scripture to teach Elian's parents their God given rolls at the time he married them.

A wedding ceremony, is not a party, it is a service to God, it is a service to bring one man and one woman together to fulfill God's wishes and to complete what He has created them for.

When God was through creating the earth, HE reached into the dust and said, "let us create man in our image" and He took that dirt and blew the breathe of life into the nostrils of the man in which He had created out of the dust. And God named this man, Adam. Now God would come and visit Adam everyday in the cool of the afternoon. And while Adam had all of God's creations to care for, play with and control, God knew that something was missing in Adams life, so, God caused Adam to go into a deep sleep, and while Adam slept, God removed one of Adams ribs. And from that rib, God created a help mate for Adam. Now notice, God didn't take more dirt and create the woman, God took a piece of Adam, one of his ribs and from that piece of Adam God created woman.

Later, after man and women had sinned, God established rules for men and women. God established rules by which woman became subservient to man.:

Genesis 3:16 Unto the woman God said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

Do you see the "and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee." no longer is there to be any doubt about who is in charge in the family, for God commanded that a husband will rule over his wife.

But, you my young man about to marry this fine and, God ordered to obedience young lady, when God sets forth rules, He is ultimately fair.

Let us look at the words of the Apostle Peter:

1 Peter 3:1-12

... wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.

Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.

God is speaking through Peter telling us that wives are to be submissive, not only are they to be submissive, they are to keep their beauty for their own husbands, not run around wearing fancy revealing clothes and glitter, makeup and hair spray, but to dress conservatively, keeping their beauty hidden for their husbands eyes only. That even if their husbands are unsaved, by their very actions they may be won over to God.

God goes on and tells husbands that they are to treat their wives as the weaker of the two, and that failure to do so might result in God turning His back on him.

God further tells us through Peters writings that husbands and wives are to treat each other like brothers, not fighting amongst themselves and biting your tongue rather than continuing the fight to get the last word and hurt in.

Do you think that if Elian's mom and dad understood their rolls in God's eyes and had been raised in a family and church family that preached these rolls that Eliam would now be being torn apart so that one side or the other could get more television time? I think not.

Let us read one more articulation and clarification of Genesis 3:16;

Ephesians 5:22-30 the Apostle Paul sheds a bit more light on the subject of husband and wife rolls and duties.

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it; That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

Wives, submit to your husbands as you would submit to the Lord! If a wife does that, there will be no divorce, Elian would still be living in Cuba with his mom and dad!

Husbands love your wife as Christ loved the church! Do you know what God is saying there? God is telling you that you must willingly sacrifice your life for your wife! Willingly, not begrudgingly, but willingly. If Elian's dad understood and was committed to that, do you think this boy would now be a pawn in the hands of two of the most corrupted and despicable world leaders today? Do you think petey jennings and the rest of the legends in their own minds would be corrupting this boy even further to satisfy their own lust for television time? How about the uncle and aunt?

No, if the preachers of the US and Cuba did their jobs, Elain would be at home and the divorce rate would be a fraction of a percent.

Let us close with this:
Ephesians 5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

And

Matthew 19:4-6
And the Lord Jesus, the Messiah, GOD, answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that He which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

And that my dear brothers and sisters is some of the Scripture I use in a marriage ceremony, let that same Scripture be part of your marriage and your lives.

Men, God has put the primary responsibility on your shoulders, for your wife and your children are made submissive to you, they can stand before God and say, "he told me to", but you, are put on earth to be as Christ to your family and you had best take that roll seriously. I would not like to be in Elain's mom and dads shoes as they stand before God Almighty and explain what is happening to their son, what about you?

Are you teaching your daughter to obey her future husband or are you teaching her that she is equal and she can be anything she wants? Are you teaching her God's rules or Castro's and Clinton's? What about your sons? Are you teaching them that they must be prepared to voluntarily die for their wives and children or are you teaching them Clinton's and Castro's rules that marriage is till something better comes along?

The Lord Jesus be with you and may HE guide you through life, giving you a burning desire to live your life according to His rule. God be with and bless you all, Amen.

Remember, as you can not serve two masters, God and evil, nor can you raise your children to do what is earthly and what is Godly, they too can only serve one master.

Daily Christian thought Sunday April 2nd, 2000 (6318 AC)

And to Jim Robinson and FreeRepublic.com, I say, thank you.

Well, today marks the end of the first week of the revocation of my posting privileges on FreeRepublic.com. I started posting on Jim's site back in March of 98 I believe, while that doesn't seem like such a long time, it really is. Free Republic, under Jim's guidance has easily become the heavy hitter of political discussion web sites. And for just about a year, Jim allowed me the honor of publishing a daily Christian thought. The same thought as appeared here on the church's site each day, except, on Free Republic, folks, both the Saved and the unsaved heathen could add their comments.

Because of the strong fundamental biblical positions of the thoughts, especially about political issues like abortion, it is always murder, for God has told us that, He formed the baby in the womb and that HE, GOD, knew us even before that:

Job 31:15 Did not he that made me in the womb make him? and did not one fashion us in the womb?
Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

And homosexuality and other sexual sins;

Leviticus 20:13-16
13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
14 And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you.
15 And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast.
16 And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

Jim came under a tremendous amount of pressure from the heathens to eliminate the unofficial, but daily Christian thought. Yet Jim let the thought stay. But, and this is important folks, but, I was being hurt by the heathens who replied, it hurt me to have them cast insults at me, but it cut even deeper to see them ridiculing the Lord and His word. So, I prayed, I prayed and told the Lord it wasn't fair, that I didn't want to be attacked and see Him attacked anymore. I prayed thinking that the Lord would hear my prayer and give writers cramp to the heathens or open their eyes, or simply do to them what He did to Elijah's offering in first Kings.

But alas, the Lord heard my prayer and did what is right in His sight, He closed the evangelical door that HE had given me on Free Republic, He didn't take the heathen flamers and flame them, He instead hardened Jim's heart and allowed Jim to ban me from writing on Free Republic.

So today's thought deals with three subjects;

One it is a thanks and a long over due one at that to Jim Robinson for allowing me the privilege of doing the Lord's work on his site. I knew the pressure he was under and I failed to thank him as often as I should have. It is one thing for me to come under pressure for what I write, it is another to see the owner of the site take a beating because of my writings and for a Lord he may not even be dedicated to.

The second point is don't let your Christian duties go to your head, never loose sight of who you are working for, don't look at as if it is your church or your evangelical outreach, for it is not your's it is God's and you are but the chief cook and janitor. We sometimes loose sight of the fact that God came to earth in the form a man named Jesus, who allowed His blood to be shed for all, and that HE loves all. And would love to see all become Saved and part of His family. And that our jobs as Born Again washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians is to spread that word, not for ourselves, for we are already Saved, but so that the heathen can have his eyes opened and come to know and accept the Lord Jesus as well.

And third, watch carefully for that which you pray for, I prayed for relief from the heathen on FreeRepublic, and the Lord gave me that freedom, by taking away my opportunity to preach on FreeRepublic.

The Lord be with you all and please pray that with the next door He opens for me, I will remember that I am but His servant.

And please keep in prayer those who always responded by saying yes, when I asked them to fill in for me while doing the daily Christian thought on Free Republic. For God did bless me and Free Republic with their presence. May the Lord guide and protect them and may they continue to respond to the heathens with God's Holy Word from Scripture. Amen.

Daily thought Saturday April 1st, 2000 (6318 AC)

Let's continue to look at the true Pentecostal.

Before we get back, let me ask, how many of you have a preacher like Paul? How many of your churches would even let Paul up on the pulpit?

Ok, get your Bibles and turn to:

1 Corinthians 12:1-22

Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant. Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led. Paul is reminding the Saved, that at one time they were unsaved heathens.

Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost. Paul is teaching that no one who is Saved can say anything bad about Jesus and no man can be Saved and confess Jesus as Lord and Saviour without the Holy Spirit having opened his heart and eyes.

Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. Now, read these carefully, for they are the gifts given by the Holy Spirit, the gifts of God to man as evidence of his being Saved, now while not all have these gifts, no other gifts are of God, notice, that while speaking in tongues is listed, ‘slain in the spirit' and rolling in the aisles isn't.

For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: Notice, to one tongues is given, to another the ability to interpret.

But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. For the body is not one member, but many. The body Paul is talking about is the body of the Church, the body of Christ, for all who are Saved are part of His Church and His body.

If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased Him. As with the human body, all parts being necessary and some that are hidden, such as your internal parts, are the most important and those in which you can least live without, heart, lungs, intestines, etc. So are even those who appear to be the least important Christians of importance to the body of Christ.

And if they were all one member, where were the body? But now are they many members, yet but one body. And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: So, all of the gifts are important, and all should be used for the good of the Body as a whole, the Body of Christ, the Church. But, none should be faked and no additional ones should be added by man. What good is a glass eye, other than to make the vanity of the man wearing it feel good? What good would your eyes be, if you never opened them? How long would you maintain your health if you refused to use your kidneys? And so it is with the Body of the Lord, if you have been given a gift, use it, if you have not been given a gift, don't fake it and do not invent new ones.

The Lord Jesus who is the Christ, be with you this day and may He help us to do what is right in His sight, to be unafraid of man and to shout from the roof tops His words and His precepts. Ever heard someone tell you how unfair salvation is because of the poor black guy in the middle of Africa who has never heard the Gospel? How about the poor sucker across the street from you? How about the guy who pumps your gas, fills your teeth or cleans your bedpan when you're in the hospital? Unless you're prepared to leave all, go to deepest darkest Africa and preach, don't worry about them, instead, preach to your neighbor. If the Messiah raptures His Church today, what about your neighbor, would he go or would he stay? Would he stay because you were so worried about the guy in deepest darkest Africa that you never shared the good news of the Gospel with him?

Remember:

Mark 16:15-16

And the Lord Jesus Christ said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Take your Bible to the park, and read it to the pigeons while you feed them, who knows, maybe a heathen will hear you and come to know the Lord. Maybe that heathen will be your neighbor, or maybe, just maybe, it is a guy ready to go to deepest darkest Africa and preach the word to the guy you're so worried about.

The Lord Jesus be with you, amen

Rage within the church.

And the debate goes on. Is speaking in tongues biblical, holy, God given or of satan? Let's start by saying this; Rolling around and gyrating on the floor with your skirt up around your waist is not of God, it is of satan and has no place in the life of a Born Again Believer, especially in church! But what about the speaking in tongues?

Read with me, the words of our Lord and Saviour the Messiah, Jesus, when He wandered earth as a man, answering to the name of Jesus.

Mark 16:9-20

Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven devils. And she went and told them that had been with Him, as they mourned and wept. And they, when they had heard that Jesus was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not. After that Jesus appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country. And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them.

Afterward the Lord appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen Him after He was risen.

And Jesus said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.


So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, He was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

Now notice: "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." First, do you see a time frame? Anything that would indicate that these gifts will only be for those who live during a certain few years? No, there is no time frame. No end. But, we must be careful to also understand that, with; "They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them;" you must also take this:

Matthew 4:5-7

Then the devil took Jesus up into the holy city, and setteth Him on a pinnacle of the temple, And saith unto Him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give His angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

Remember that. "It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God." so you are not to tempt God by going out hunting down a copperhead, rattlesnake, cobra or the such and playing with it, for that would be to test God, you are not to take poisons and feed it to yourself of others, for that would be tempting God, and Jesus has told us very very clearly, "Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God." The first time we see just what the Lord is talking about is in

Acts 28:3-5

And when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks, and laid them on the fire, there came a viper out of the heat, and fastened on his hand. And when the barbarians saw the venomous beast hang on his hand, they said among themselves, No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he hath escaped the sea, yet vengeance suffereth not to live.

And Paul shook off the beast into the fire, and felt no harm.

This poisonous snake came out of nowhere, Paul didn't go hunt it down and say "Hey heathens, look at what I can do." No, the snake came out of the fire, struck at and held on to Paul, and Paul just shook him off with no ill effects whatsoever. Interesting isn't it that the snake came out of the fire, kind of like satan coming out of hell, striking at you and you just brushing his attacks off, because you put your trust and salvation in the hands of the Lord.

So, yes, the speaking in tongues is Biblical, for the Lord Himself has told us it is, but there are certain tests and conditions and those we will discuss at a later time.

May the Lord thy God, Jesus be with and bless you and yours this day, may He help you to understand His word and guide your life so as to help you live it in a way pleasing unto Him, for we are made in His image for His pleasure and to serve Him.

God's blessings on you and yours, amen.

Now, just a note to those of you who are Roman Catholics, you need to think long and hard about following the teachings and leadership of a man who kneels down and worships and kisses statues, your pope, totally desecrated the word of God with his behavior in Israel over the last couple of weeks, you need to decide today, are you going to follow the Word of God and Jesus or are you going to follow a man with the title of pope. You need to get your bibles out right now and read Exodus the twentieth chapter and then you need to pray.

Your soul, your salvation. Trust no man, trust God's Word for you and only you can fulfill the requirements the Lord has laid down to be saved!

If you do not have a Bible and you can not afford to buy one, contact us and we will send you a KJV.

WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH KIDS TODAY?

A guest thought by: Forest Maguire, USArmy ret.

Are you a Pastor and teacher to your family or are you an Adult Delinquent?

Some years ago there was a musical comedy titled Bye Bye Birdie. One of the songs from that production was a tune with the title of this article. Given the recent news of a six year old shooting and killing another six year old, I am profoundly disturbed. Kids, what's the matter with kids today? Our chief executive decries the issue as one of gun control calling for more laws which run counter to the supreme law of our land, The Constitution of These United States.

From what I have read and observed, the shooter in this case was a child who was growing up in a "Crack House" raised only by his mother and an "Uncle". The child's father was an imprisoned felon who was not around. That the child was even attending school at all was a miracle unto itself.

Children are born into this world as precious gifts from God for parents to nurture, train and raise. After all, they are made in His own image and likeness as are their parents. However, our secular law makers and givers have made that process virtually impossible.

Psalms 127:3
Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

Proverbs 17:6
Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.

Parents these days are prohibited from providing even basic discipline to their children. I am not talking about shaking an infant to death or scalding a toddler as punishment for messing its diapers nor about beating an older child until blood flows. I am talking about corporal punishment. Much is made about children being tempted to reach up to the stove top and being tempted to pull the handle on a pot of boiling water over on themselves.

However, if a parent, in well intentioned attempts to teach the child to stay away from the stove slaps their little hands or bottom, he/she is guilty of "Abuse."

Yet the Lord thy God says:

Proverbs 13:24
He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.

Ephesians 6:4
And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

I have been fortunate to share my life with many puppies in my time. One of the things that needs to be done is to teach the puppy not to make messes in the house (commonly referred to as Housebreaking") Done properly, you bring the pup to the mess, rub its nose in the mess, use a newspaper to show your displeasure with a newspaper and then put the pup outside to show it where it should "do its business." I've raised a lot of pups in this manner and am currently doing so with good results. I rarely, if ever, step in messes.

Look at the mother and father of that six year old. One in jail and the other self-imprisoned by drugs. Or worse. How many times was the child shown the "Strait Gate?" Even had either of his parents been available and in their right minds, would they have been permitted to raise their child properly with love and compassion and a knowledge and love of the Lord our God?

No, I think not. God has been banished from schools and, I would think that with the pro choice stance of our "leaders" that his little light would have been snuffed out before he even had a chance to know this sorry Godless world.

Now, that little boy has been rightfully placed in a foster care situation away from the evils that he was raised in. However, will he ever be given the opportunity to know his creator? I think not.

In a book titled Starship Troopers one of my favorite authors Robert Heinlein once addressed the issue of juvenile criminals quite nicely. The catch phrase has always been juvenile delinquents but Mr. Heinlein took the position that the term juvenile delinquent was a contradiction in terms. "Delinquent means failing in duty but duty is an adult virtue. A juvenile becomes an adult when, and only when he acquires a knowledge of duty and embraces it as dearer than the self love he was born with." Given this premise, "there never was, there cannot be, a juvenile delinquent. But for every juvenile criminal there are always one or more adult delinquents - people of mature years who either do not know their duty, or who, knowing it, fail."

You might have noticed the use of the term "self love." As used by Mr. Heinlein, self love is a basic survival mechanism that all human beings are born with. It is a "me first" reaction to survival. The social engineers and social workers who presume to attempt to change our society are trying to appeal to the "better nature" of children. A waste of time as children have none. They are born as survival machines.

.

You will often hear of corporal punishment as "cruel and unusual." I disagree as did Mr. Heinlein. The reaction to pain is the basic mechanism given to us by God which safeguards us by warning us when something threatens our survival. When rearing children, why should we refuse to use such a highly perfected God given survival instinct?

As parents and adults, it is our duty to instill in our children social instinct and respect for law. Indeed as a society, we also have the same responsibility to insure the survival of ourselves as a race.

"Man has no moral instinct, he is not born with moral sense." These values need to be taught. There is a road map to those teachings called the Holy Bible. All one needs to do is to read and teach. As a parent, YOU are the pastor of your family.

Deuteronomy 6:5-9

And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:

And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

In closing, are you an "Adult Delinquent" or a pastor and a teacher to your family?

Do not think for even one moment that god will hold you harmless for letting the children He has given you become the possessions of satan. Do not for one moment think that He will let you get by with "Well, Lord, billy clinton and his buddies made it against the law to teach the kids about you, so I thought it best to obey the law of clinton and let my kids go to hell." for He tells us this too:

Exodus 20:5-6

Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

The Lord thy God be with thee, teach your children to love and fear God. And to abide by man's laws unless they conflict with God's law.

Some things are just facts!

While the leftists would disagree, there is such a thing as absolute truth and as a result there is also such a thing as a lie. There are those who are truthful and there are those who are liars. And then there are those like our president, William Jefferson Blithe Clinton who it would seem is incapable of telling the truth, even when it comes to his own name.

William Jefferson Blithe Clinton is a pathological, satan worshiping, lying piece of slime that should have been tried for treason and shot. How can I say that about our president,? Simple, while some lie to make a profit and others lie to protect themselves, clinton lies because that's what he and the one he serves do. Lie. Clinton and satan go beyond the simple lie, they lie about God's word, they use the Word of God, by twisting it, to gather souls for satan.

Clinton, like his master, his god, satan, use the Word of the Living God to corrupt, not save. They twist Scripture in an attempt to make God a liar, and that can only be done by one who either is or truly serves and worships satan.

God said:
Genesis 2:7-17

And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. And the LORD GOD planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there He put the man whom He had formed. And out of the ground made the LORD GOD to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone. And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia. And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.

And the LORD GOD took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. And the LORD GOD commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

God, the Creator told man that he could have and eat of every tree in the garden, except for the tree of knowledge, and God the Creator told man that if he ate of that one tree, "thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die."

But, let us look at what satan says, the way he twists Scripture, just a bit, to get his own way, to lead one from God to him, from an eternity of glory in heaven, to an eternity of misery, torment and suffering in hell.

Genesis 3:1-6

Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD GOD had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

See the way satan twisted and rationalized Scripture to reach his own perverted goal? That's what satan does, he lies, he twists scripture, but not just him, so also his sons, for the Lord Jesus has warned us:

John 8:44

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Satan is the father of liars and those who do what he does, are his sons.

Let's focus on the satan worshiping liar in the oval office, Clinton.

God the Father tells us in Exodus 20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

God the Son tells us in Matthew 5:27-28 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

Jesus tells us that if we look at a woman, other than our wife, and lust after her, we are committing adultery, yet read what clinton says: clinton has said, "I have searched and studied the bible and God does not consider oral sex adultery". Bill clinton twist the word of God for his own perverted lust and to win souls for his master, his god, he whom he serves, satan. Bill clinton is the son of satan and like satan has a blood lust for souls listening to clinton is no different then listening to satan, both are liars whom have no truth within them, and both are out to destroy your relationship with God the Creator and cause you to spend eternity in hell with them.

The Lord Jesus be with you and help you be strong enough to serve God and not clinton and satan.

If you stay home, evil prevails!

In less than six months, lesbians and homosexuals will be considered the same as God sanctioned marriage between one man and one woman in Vermont. Think about that for a moment, in September of this year, the state of Vermont will recognize homosexual and lesbian shacking up as equal in rights to marriage between one man and one woman and sanctified by God. Why? Because good people stayed home and did not vote.

In the state of Maine, the most notorious of all the senators in Washington will come back up for reelection, she is by far the most pro abortion, pro homosexual, anti family, anti constitution senator in the US Senate, but she is almost guaranteed reelection. Why, because good people will put party politics ahead of God and conscience and cast a vote for her.

Come next November, we here in the USA will send one of two anti US sovereignty mem to the white house as our president, we will select from three or four, but because good people will put party politics ahead of God, the child in the womb, decency, honesty and freedom, we will send vice president Al Gore of Governor Bush to the office of the presidency.

Why do good people do this? Because they turn from the Word of God to the preaching of liberals who help them justify their sins by twisting the Word of God to met their own needs and legitimize their shame. Churches preach from the pulpit, "Hate the sin, but love the sinner", Yet God tells us to separate ourselves from sinners, to have nothing to do with them.

2 Corinthians 6:14-18

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

How can you think for even a moment that you are to love the sinner who is a homosexual or lesbian, do these next verses sound as if God Almighty loves them? After reading them, does it seem to you that God tolerates those who commit these abominations?

Leviticus 20:13-16

13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

14 And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you.

15 And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast.

16 And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

Hate the sin and separate yourself from the sinner. Let the liberal preacher roll in the gutter with them, do not take them into your churches or your homes, for you are to shelter your little ones from them, would you let your child play with a cobra? Would you bring a tiger into your home or within the Sunday school classroom? The cobra and the tiger can but kill the body, but the homosexual, the abortionist, the lesbian can take your child's soul straight to hell with them.

I know, I can hear you out there screaming, "But pastor, since Jesus came aren't these rulles over?"
NO! NO! NO!

What does Jesus say about these rules, can you find anywhere in His teachings that would eliminate your needing to abide by them? No, you can't for the Lord taught us that these rules are still in place and will remain in place till all prophecy is fulfilled, including the book of Revelation. Read:

Matthew 5:17-19

Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

The Lord Jesus be with you, for you hold the key to any election in this country, if you will only vote for those who seek to do what is right in the sight of the Lord. Not the lesser of the two evils, not the party, but he who seeks to do what is right in the sight of the Lord thy God.

Satan and his army are attacking the family!

The open and insidious attack on the family has gotten to the point where it is no longer even covert. First let us look at what God designed as the family and what He created as glue to hold the family together.

God designed the family to be a father, a mother and children. The extended family included grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins and nephews. The family itself was held together with three glues. The first glue was the glue of virginity. When God created man and woman, he knew that one day they would leave their own families and join together to form a new family. God knew that this would be by joining one man and one woman together, He also knew that there would be wedding gifts given to the loving couple by friends and relatives, He wanted to give a gift that would bind the couple together and could not be duplicated, matched or considered inferior to any of the other gifts, He wanted to make sure the gift was delivered at exactly the right time, so He entrusted the gift with one of the two recipients. The gift is the virginity of the maiden getting married. For God knew that as long as one man came to the wedding not knowing any other woman and one woman came unawares of any other man, that marriage would last forever.

Leviticus 21:14
A widow, or a divorced woman, or profane, or an harlot, these shall he not take: but he shall take a virgin of his own people to wife.

God further knew that if man started looking at and having other women, it would not be long before divorce became rampant and families broke up.

Matthew 5:28
But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

Matthew 19:4-6
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that God which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

So God created man and woman He gave them a desire to love one another in the role of husband and wife, father and mother. But then He went even further, He gave us the glue of children, what a glue, the glue that binds a dad and mom together, the little one, the mirror image of God, dad and mom.

Jeremiah 1:5
Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

But, now, these three glues are under direct and withering attack, girls are convinced by schools, peers, television, and the medical community that their virginity is not a gift from God, but a nescience, something to get rid of at an ever earlier age. The same groups recruit for the homosexuals and lesbians in the community and the attack on the baby in the womb, is not only relentless, it is the most sustained and vicious, first it was eliminate the baby with condoms, then birth control jells, foams and pills and now when all else fails and in some case initially, abortion, the murder of the baby while he or she sleeps peacefully in the supposed safety of his or her mothers womb.

The womb has become the most dangerous place on earth to be. Nothing compares to abortion world wide for the number of deaths each year. The nightly lie they call the news tells us that the number one killer of children in this country is cars, that is a lie, it is abortion, 3 million babies each year are murdered right here in the United States. It is not the 1.47 million the leftist liars claim, it is three million, 3,000,000 babies slaughtered cut up and sold for body parts, fertilizer, animal feed and candles each year. Abortionist have been so protected since 1976, that there has been not one abortionist or abortion mill audited by the infernal revenue service, a police department from hell and an arm of satan for sure.

Today's televison shows, news shows, magazines, schools and yes some church pulpits and even some parents glorify divorce, promiscuousness, and the slaughter of the baby in the womb, not to be helpful to children, but to recruit their souls for satan. For what other reason could a man or woman have for telling a child to try and accept homosexuality and lesbianism in light of God's Word:

Leviticus 20:13
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

Fathers, teach your children and bear this in mind, God has made you the defender of your daughters virginity, and if you think for one minute that He is going to shake His head and say "oh well", you have another thought coming.

The Lord Jesus, God in human form have mercy on you, may He help you to do what is right in His sight and may He give you the strength, courage and integrity to defend your wife and family, your children both in the womb and out, with your life.

Oh how the heathens do carry on.

In light of the news coming out of the middle east, we need to look at a few verses of Scripture, for oh how the heathens do rage, how they totally ignore the Word of God, the Holy Bible and play to the cameras and for a spot with petey jennings.

Exodus 20:1-5

And God spake all these words, saying,

I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Matthew 23:8-10

But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

What is going on in the Israel is nothing more than men positioning themselves to make themselves gods.

Isaiah 45:9-14

Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands? Woe unto him that saith unto his father, What begettest thou? or to the woman, What hast thou brought forth? Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me. I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded. I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will direct all his ways: he shall build my city, and he shall let go my captives, not for price nor reward, saith the LORD of hosts. Thus saith the LORD, The labour of Egypt, and merchandise of Ethiopia and of the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over unto thee, and they shall be thine: they shall come after thee; in chains they shall come over, and they shall fall down unto thee, they shall make supplication unto thee, saying, Surely God is in thee; and there is none else, there is no God.

Jerusalem is God's holy city, it makes no difference what the pope wants, what clinton, the un or any other two bit politician wants, God has declared Jerusalem to be His and no amount of politics on earth is going to give it to the sons of Edom for very long.

As you watch the unfolding of prophecy in Israel, keep you mind focused on the verses above and this:

John 3:1-18 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be? Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Believe on and put your trust on Jesus, for it is through Him and only Him that you avoid spending eternity in hell. Your salvation is your business and your responsibility. If you turn to statues of saints and God to worship instead of the Living God the Creator of Heaven and Earth, if you choose to take the lazy way out and listen to your preacher, priest, rabbi or pope, rather then searching for the truth in the Word of God, the Holy Bible, then you have no one to blame but yourself, for it is you and only you who can come to Christ begging, pleading and broken, beseeching the Lord to forgive you and to both accept you and take control of your life.

Your life, your choice, your eternity. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: Hebrews 9:27

Don't procrastinate, seek God through Jesus today.

The Pope speaks only for Roman Catholics, and then...

The Pope speaks only for Roman Catholics, and then only those Roman Catholics that either do not attend church or attend one of the main stream Roman Catholic churches. He does not speak for Christianity. He does not speak on behalf of me or any other Born Again Christian, when the Pope apologizes, he apologizes for Roman Catholicism, not Evangelical or Fundamental Christianity. You should remember, it was not just Jews that the Nazi's murdered, it was Gypsies and Evangelical and Fundamental Christians as well. Why would we apologize for having been targeted by Hitler, it is as foolish as to ask and expect the Jew to apologize, for with the Jew, went the other religious enemies of Hitler and his regime, the Fundamental and Evangelical Born Again Believers.

We in the Born again Christian community do not recognize any supposed authority that this pope and his predecessors have taken for themselves. For the Rock is Jesus, not Peter!

Jesus very clearly stated: And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Matthew 23:9

Now some would have you believe that Jesus is not talking about the "pope" or a "priest", but when you read the verses proceeding and following, you'll see that Jesus is talking precisely about religious leaders.

Matthew 23:1-16 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.

And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves. Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!

Do you see who Jesus is talking about? He is talking about the religious leaders of the time. Did you know that the chief priest and his cronies liked to be called ‘father'? They enjoyed the status of being like an overall father to the jewish community. Did you know that the Rabbis of old were called priest?

For those of us who are Born Again believers, the pope doesn't speak, for he is nothing more than a man, but we put our faith, trust and believe in the one Father and we learn from and call the one Son, Jesus, Master.

The pope also stated that he supports a Palestinian state within the borders of Israel, once again, he can speak for himself, but not for those who study and believe in God's Word, for God is very clear that the land called Israel in the Bible is His to dole out and He doesn't give two hoots about what bill clinton, the pope, the un or the prime minister of Israel want. He has given that land to His Son. And clinton, the pope and their supporters can argue till their blue in the face, for it is God's will that will be done.

The Lord be with you all, and put your trust and faith in the One Jesus called Father, not some guy with a cane and a bullet proof truck.

Responsibilities of a Father

Providing for his family

Following the example given to us by our heavenly Father, we must give good gifts to our family. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus speaks of children asking their fathers for bread and fish, and expecting the blessing of a meal. As God provides for us, so a man is to provide for his wife and children.

Matthew 7:8-11

For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

A man must provide both physically and spiritually for his family. As far as physically, it is his responsibility to see that the family has the necessities of food, clothing and shelter. This does not mean that the father is the archtypical breadwinner; the wife and children of bygone times were responsible for various tasks that also provided for the family, they do not sit around all day waiting for "him" to come home. In a direct contrast to our "modern" family living in the suburbs, the wife and children in the family of years gone by would preserve food, help with the livestock, and make clothing. It was up to the father to provide them with the essential, enabling them to do this work, yes he was the provider but he had plenty of help.

Men of today must embrace the role of physical provision, whether they live in a suburb, on a farm or in an apartment in a city. The idea that a woman works to support the family and the father stays at home is a mix up of God's word and is out of order. How can a man serve as a direct reflection of our Holy Father by acting like a mother? A family is better off living on a father's meager wages than by having the mother and father change roles.

Psalm 127:1

Except the Lord builds the house, they labour in vain that build it; unless the Lord provides for my family, my work as their provider will produce nothing.

More important than physical provision is the father's responsibility to provide spiritually for his family. If he does not provide for them physically they will die physically, but without spiritual food they will die for eternity. The father is the Shepherd of the 23rd Psalm. He must lead his family to those green pastures and the still waters that are found only in the Word of God. He must instruct them, he must lead them in capturing scripture into their hearts. This must be done in both structured sessions of family Bible studies, but also in his day to day living. A father must remember that he is constantly living under the close scrutiny of his family.

1 Kings 17:10-16

So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman [was] there gathering of sticks: and he called to her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink. And as she was going to fetch [it], he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand. And she said, [As] the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die. And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son. For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth. And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days. And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah.

Today's fathers have been emasculated and the roles that our Father designed for us have been stripped from us. It is time for us to return to our roots and once again provide for our families.

Protecting his family

Fathers are to provide protection for those under their care.

Ephesians 6: 10-12

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

The father is the primary defender of his family. It is God's protection that is worked through the earthly father. It is doubtful for most of us that we will have to lock our loved ones in a cabin against wild animals, however we must protect them in other ways.

We must determine where our family will live and if that place is safe from the attacks of those that would do us harm. We must keep our home safe for living in by keeping it in a state of good repair. We must protect our families from danger when traveling by keeping our cars in good repair. We must be ready and willing to protect our homes from intruders, using whatever force we can if necessary. We must protect our children while at play, determining where they can play and with whom they associate.

There have been several instances in history where "women and children first" was the rule. We have to be ready to lay our lives on the line for those under our protection.

Many men provide for the physical protection of their families, but leave them spiritually defenseless.

One spiritual threat we must be aware of is evil companions. Evil companions can come in the form of neighbor kids, teachers, and even relatives and of course classmates. Another form of evil companion is media; televisions, newspapers, the Internet, radio, videos, all are potential sources of evil. It is the duty of fathers to protect those in our charge from exposure to those things that are evil. Why do Christian men stand by and allow our children to be swallowed up by MTV? Why do we allow them to go to the death houses of secular teaching establishments (universities and public schools)?

Whether it is painting the house, buying and learning how to safely use a gun, prohibiting certain TV viewing, or interviewing a daughter's prospective spouse, the many ways a man can protect his family are all part of his duty as the defender of the family.

Psalm 127:1
Except the Lord builds the house, they labour in vain that build it.

PSalm 18:2-8
The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid. The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me. In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears. Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth. There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.

Leading his family

Proverbs 18:22,
Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.

20:4
The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.

In the past two decades or so feminism has greatly harmed the roles of the man in his home. Let me again remind you that the father only has his authority through God. We hear the liberals asking us to preserve our families dignity and independence, I would have to ask: What about the character and soul of the members of my family? What has happened to the honor for the Father that created all of us? The main role of the father is to shape and mold his children into children of God! The biggest thrill for a father is to see his children in full submission to God the Father. God will bless a family led by a father is not afraid to step out and direct his children in the ways of the Lord.

Many families lack a father willing to stand up and direct his family. This leaves families floundering in the sea of sin with no direction, no purpose, and no guidance spiritually or morally. Today's family can very easily find itself resembling a ship without a rudder.

Each father must develop goals for his family. The goals must include goals for their financial situation, education of children, and character development for all members of the family. These goals must be on a yearly, monthly, weekly and even daily calendar. They have to withstand the scrutiny of his earthly family and Heavenly Father. Remember when making goals that they are to be proactive - we all too often fall into the reactive mode. We are great problem solvers but rotten planners. We have to make things happen, not react to what has already happened. We will solve a problem if our wives set it in our laps. We should instead be the ones looking ahead for problems and planning what is best for the family welfare. A leader makes things happen, he doesn't wait for them to happen.

A father must take the responsibility for the decisions he makes. This is probably the hardest and most difficult part of being a family leader. Remember whom did Adam blame when he made the decision to disobey God? We have to hold ourselves accountable to ourselves, our families, and most importantly God. We are the ones who make decisions for our families to follow regarding all of the minor and major hurdles the family encounters. We decide on what TV (if any) is appropriate, what clothing is appropriate, what age our children will start dating, whether that shy boy at the door is worthy of the affection of your daughter, what the final family budget will look like and many other decisions.

While doing all of the above, the father cannot become a tyrant. The wise husband will pull from the wisdom that God placed into his wife, and as they grow and mature from his children. He must realize that although he has the responsibility, he is not to be lone ranger in this endeavor

You are probably saying to yourself, how can I do all of these things? We have to start on our knees before our Father, our loving and tender Heavenly Father. Did you think it was an accident that the head of the family is called "father"? As we learn and follow we will become an example of what fathers were meant to be. Whether it is painting the house, buying and learning how to safely use a gun, prohibiting certain TV viewing, or interviewing a daughter's prospective spouse, the many ways a man can protect his family are all part of his duty as the defender of the family.

Psalm 118:8-9

Oh Lord Jesus, hear my prayer.

How often I have sat and listened as others prayed, have sat and read the prayer that they have written, and wonder to whom they are praying and from whom they learned to pray. For many of these prayers go on and on and on. They say the same thing over and over again, Oh Lord do this or do that, again and again they repetitiously pray over and over, again and again.

Jesus Himself has told us not to be repetitious;

Matthew 6:7-8

But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask Him.

You don't need to be loud, you don't need to shout, you simply must come to the Lord in honesty asking Him for that which you have on your heart. Do you see at the end of verse 8 where Jesus tells us that the Father knows what you need before you even ask Him. The thing you are praying for is the thing the Father wants you to ask Him for if you are coming to Him through being led by the Holy Spirit.

Let's look at an example of prayer being fulfilled. Now as you read these verses, ask yourself this, how else would Elijah ever come up with the idea of doing this if it were not placed within his heart by the Holy Spirit.

1 Kings 18:1-40

And it came to pass after many days, that the word of the LORD came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, shew thyself unto Ahab; and I will send rain upon the earth. And Elijah went to shew himself unto Ahab. And there was a sore famine in Samaria.

Now - back at Ahab's castle,

And Ahab called Obadiah, which was the governor of his house. (Now Obadiah feared the LORD greatly: For it was so, when Jezebel cut off the prophets of the LORD, that Obadiah took an hundred prophets, and hid them by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water.) And Ahab said unto Obadiah, Go into the land, unto all fountains of water, and unto all brooks: peradventure we may find grass to save the horses and mules alive, that we lose not all the beasts. So they divided the land between them to pass throughout it: Ahab went one way by himself, and Obadiah went another way by himself.

And as Obadiah was in the way, behold, Elijah met him: and he knew him, and fell on his face, and said, Art thou that my lord Elijah? And Elijah answered him, I am: go, tell thy lord Ahab, Behold, Elijah is here. And he said, What have I sinned, that thou wouldest deliver thy servant into the hand of Ahab, to slay me? As the LORD thy God liveth, there is no nation or kingdom, whither my lord hath not sent to seek thee: and when they said, He is not there; he took an oath of the kingdom and nation, that they found thee not. And now thou sayest, Go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here. And it shall come to pass, as soon as I am gone from thee, that the Spirit of the LORD shall carry thee whither I know not; and so when I come and tell Ahab, and he cannot find thee, he shall slay me: but I thy servant fear the LORD from my youth.

And Obadiah continued, saying;

Was it not told my lord what I did when Jezebel slew the prophets of the LORD, how I hid an hundred men of the LORD's prophets by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water? And now thou sayest, Go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here: and he shall slay me.

And Elijah said, As the LORD of hosts liveth, before whom I stand, I will surely shew myself unto him to day. So Obadiah went to meet Ahab, and told him: and Ahab went to meet Elijah. And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel?

And Elijah answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father's house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim. Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel's table.

So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together unto mount Carmel. And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word. Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the LORD; but Baal's prophets are four hundred and fifty men. Let them therefore give us two bullocks; and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.

And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal, Choose you one bullock for yourselves, and dress it first; for ye are many; and call on the name of your gods, but put no fire under. And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made.

And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked. And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them. And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded.

And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the LORD that was broken down. And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the LORD came, saying, Israel shall be thy name: And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the LORD: and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two measures of seed. And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid him on the wood, and said, Fill four barrels with water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice, and on the wood. And he said, Do it the second time. And they did it the second time. And he said, Do it the third time. And they did it the third time. And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water. And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said,

Now, watch this. Look at Elijah's prayer:

LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word. Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again.

That's it, that's the whole prayer. See anything repetitious? Notice, no mention of screaming, rolling around on the ground, nothing, just a short and to the point prayer, one that the Holy Spirit had placed on Elijah's heart.

Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The LORD, he is the God; the LORD, he is the God. And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape.

And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.
Amen.

Now don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with a long prayer, when you have plenty to ask the Lord about and for, just look at the prayer spoken by Jesus in John 17. But be not repetitious, no vain utterance, no rolling in the isle, not passing out on the floor, not slithering with your skirt up around your waist, just come to the Lord in prayer, Jesus tells us to go into our prayer closet and close the door and pray.

The Lord be with you all, and may He help us all to be Elijah's to hear Him and have the strength to do that in which He calls us to do, even if it's as unbelievable as that in which He had Elijah do.

Are you an olympia snowe coward?

Everyone is something, either a hero or a martyr or a coward like olympia snowe the republican US Senator from Maine. While you can be a hero and a martyr, if you choose the path of cowardice, you are a coward only, you're like those who hide under rocks and strike out anonymously, those who do and abide by abortion, those who like clinton send brave young men and women off to kill nameless men women and children just to get his evil deeds off the front pages. Cowards are the men who let their children be killed by abortion or attacked by bullies. They are the men who don't screen out their children's playmates and later dates and then yell at them when they get in trouble.

Heros are those that not only turn the other cheek when they are slapped, but put themselves in the way of the slap to protect their wives and children. Cowards read the writings of Paul and see only

"Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord." Ephesians 5:22

Heroes read on for the responsibility of man to a wife who submits.

For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it; Ephesians 5:23-25

God came down from heaven in the form a man named Jesus, He voluntarily allowed Himself to be the perfect sacrifice so as to atone for our sins, God was a hero and by His actions a martyr. Senator olympia snowe, president bill clinton and men who stand by and allow their unborn children to be slaughtered by abortionist are cowards, but even they are not as cowardly as those who claim to be pro life and claim to be followers of the Lord Jesus while protecting abortionist under the cover of a quarter of a verse of Scripture.

This weeks ACP link of the week pick is a site where men and women have stopped and taken a stand, not all of them are heroes, but all understand that because of the stand they have taken, they may all be called upon to become martyrs, but one thing for sure, at this site there are no cowards!

May the Lord Jesus, who is the Christ, the Messiah be with those of you who are heroes and may He do to the cowards what they would have the abortionist do to their children. Amen.

This weeks issue of The New American has a great report about a hero on page 33 by Robert Lee.

Heros love and protect their wives and children, cowards order their women to take their captive baby to a abortionist and have their baby killed, cut up and sold for body parts.

The Lord Jesus, the Messiah be with you.

What would you do?

What would you do, where would you put your faith and trust? Ask yourself these questions. Do I trust God? Am I willing to rely on God?

Matthew 14:25-31

And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw Jesus walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.

And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And He said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

Would you have even stepped out of the boat? Would you, like Peter, taken only a few steps, hesitated, gotten scared, and rationalized only to sink into the waters?

How many times the Lord calls us to do things and yet we do not do them. We don't because we aren't sure we should, for society and man tell us we can't. Peter, as a boy, was brought up around boats, in a family of fisherman and was I'm sure, raised with a healthy respect and maybe even fear of the sea, yet, he did take those first few steps, but then the worries of the world crept in and he sank.

Sometimes stepping out in faith and putting your destiny, fate and trust in the Lord completely is harder then the hymns make it sound. But there are some who didn't falter, do not hesitate. And to them, God has even greater rewards and His will and His work are done. Read first Kings 18:1-40 and see how God provides for those who trust in Him, even when the thing trusted to God seems impossible to man.

Oh Lord God Almighty, raise up for us an Elijah, teach us to have his faith in You. Teach us to follow You regardless of where You lead. And to do what you ask us to do, even when it seems impossible.

Daily thought The Weekend of March 18th and 19th, 2000 (6318 AC)

Let someone else die!

It seems that whenever there is trouble, the decision is to let someone else die. Not long ago Americans were called to fight and die for a little country called Korea. Not because the South Koreans didn't want to be free, but more because they would prefer to have someone else do the fighting, killing and dying, and that someone was us, the USA.

One day flying over Korea was a formation of 12 Navy carrier jets, their job was to knock out four bridges, bridges vital to the communist advance. Those bridges cost the US, first a jet at the bridges, then a jet wounded at the bridges that went down in communist held territory and then a rescue helicopter as it attempted to rescue the downed pilot.

With the downed jet pilot and the two man crew of the downed helicopter crew under extreme fire from the communists, a family of four civilians wandered onto the scene wearing tattered uniforms, a F4U cover pilot saw them, thought they were more communist soldiers and strafed them. Now almost fifty years later, the administration of that same USA that gave so many of her children's lifes to free the Koreans who wanted to be free but wanted someone else to die, remembers not the US Marines, US Navy and US Army troops and pilots that fought, killed and died for the Koreans, but the civilians that wandered onto the field of fire and died by mistake. The president that was to good to go and fight in Vietnam, now prefers to honor those who were spectators to the fight to free their country, rather then the heros that came form the shores of the USA to fight, kill and die so that those spectators could be free.

Now it is the USA looking for someone else to come and die, for we want and end to the slaughter of the child in the womb by the evil communist satan worshiping high priest of baal that sacrifice at the alter of abortion 700 of our babies every day, seven days a week, fifty two weeks a year. For we say, stop the killing, but we, while wanting to be free of the murderers, also say, but, let someone else come and do the fighting, the killing and the dying.

And one day that prayer will be heard, one day a warrior will arise and rescue our babies.

Isaiah 9:5-6

5 For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire.
6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Yes, one day, Jesus will return and rescue those babies, for we like the South Koreans, the South Vietnamese and countless other societies wishing to be free of injustice, just don't want it to end at the cost of our own fighting, and dying to end it.

For today, even when a American who has had enough does go out to avenge the blood of the baby in the womb, we, the Christians and Patriots of the country join with the communist, the murders of the babies and condemn the avenger. We join with the petey jennings, the billy clintons and the olympia snowes and lament the passing of the child murderer.

William Cohen speaks and China trembles?

If it were not so pathetic, it would almost be funny. The clinton administration, hand picked, Secretary of Defense Bill Cohen is in Japan warning the Chinese to be good. Wouldn't you love to be a fly on the wall as the Chinese spoke amongst themselves after this pompous fool left the room.

How long do you think they rolled on the floor in laughter, before someone uttered the words, "who does he think he's talking to?" If it were not so sad, it really would be almost comical. Let's look at two world leaders, william jefferson blythe clinton, the president and the Lord Jesus, the King of kings, Lord of lords, the Christ. Clinton, his minions, ilk and lackeys parade around the world puffing themselves up, Jesus washed His follower's feet.

John 13:1-5

Now before the feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that His hour was come that He should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved His own which were in the world, He loved them unto the end. And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray Him; Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He was come from God, and went to God;

He arose from supper, and laid aside His garments; and took a towel, and girded Himself. After that Jesus poured water into a basin, and began to wash His disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith He was girded.

Clinton murders, rapes commits treason, perjury and adultery and some still put their faith in him and their social security check, welfare check and food stamps, while professing to be followers of the Lord Jesus the Christ. How sad, for you can not serve both clinton the pervert and Jesus the Christ, the Messiah, God Himself.

Matthew 6:24-26

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are ye not much better than they?

It's almost funny; men fought and died in 1776 to give us freedom, in 1865 600,000 plus men became causalities of a war to end slavery yet today in the year 2000 men and women sell their freedom to the government and to satan for a few food stamps, a bit of fuel oil and a tad of money with no real value. All the while ignoring the wars going on that our government fans the flames of and the perversion of our children and society by those elected to serve us.

Pray that clinton, cohen. snowe, barney frank and the rest of them enjoy this time of their rule for it must remain a pleasant enough memory to see them through and eternity of hell. Get your priorities straight my friends, for:

2 Peter 3:9-10

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

Today? Tonight? Next week? Ten years from now? I don't know, but neither do you, so don't wait, decide to today Jesus or clinton, you can not serve both! And even if Jesus doesn't come back for ten thousand more years, you're not going to live that long, so remember and pay heed to this:

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

The Lord be with you all, for all those who are Saved, have nothing to worry about, but for those who are unsaved and are the servants of clinton, cohen, snowe and frank, and he whom they serve, you have much to worry about and should start thinking about it right now!

In the beginning of the school year, I took a look at a public school class in a local elementary school. The class, it's level of ability and it's behavior had me on my knees and in tears, for it was horrible. Students crawling around on the floor making noises like animals, behavior and language more befitting a sailor than a child, scholar wise, about three steps behind a toddler with a classroom demeanor unfit for anything other then MTV.

So, we prayed, we prayed and prayed and prayed. We called out to the Lord in desperation, knowing that He and only He could rescue these children.

Yesterday, I spent the day with this class again, and it is obvious that the Lord not only heard our prayers, but blessed us with His answering them by taking this class from the bottom to the top in every measurable standard available, and has instilled in them, both a love of the Lord and each other.

So, what does it mean when we pray: Lord, I pray that You will bless those who bless me and mine and curse those who curse me and mine. Does it mean give those who bless me a new car and send those who curse me to hell? NO!

Let us look at a bit of Scripture:

Numbers 6:24-26

The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

Romans 16:24
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

2 Timothy 4:22
The Lord Jesus Christ be with thy spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.

See, no new cars, what a blessing from God is, health, peace, the ability to forgive, it is having God walking with you and protecting you. It is having the Lord protect you and yours from evil, the evil one, his minions, ilk, and those who serve evil knowingly and unknowingly. It is having the Lord come into a class room and evict evil and replace it with His spirit and His values.

It is, having men of integrity willing to give up their time and spend a day working for the Lord. It is the Lord touching men and a lady to spend a day here on the daily Christian thought, to reach those whom I have alienated. That my brothers, sisters and friends is being blessed.

But what about the curse. What about the part that says, ...and curse those who curse me. Is that asking God to damn them? Is it saying to the Lord, fry them Lord, let them spend all eternity in hell?
NO again.

Look:

2 Timothy 4:14
Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works:

What is Paul asking the Lord to do? He is throwing up his hands in frustration and saying "Lord, nothing I do seems to reach this guy, all he does is beat up on me, I can't lead him to you, You must get someone else to introduce You to him."

And that is what makes the blessing of those the Lord has lead to write the thought one day a week, for they, and all you need do is read the thoughts written by others and the comments that follow them to see, are reaching those whom I have alienated.

Praise God for these men and one lady have watered and tilled and tended to many a soul that would have fallen amongst the rocks otherwise.

And I ask you all to pray and thank God for those who write and with their printed thoughts help lead to salvation, those whom I have said, "Lord you deal with him, I've had it, I can't take this guy any longer."

Praise the Lord Jesus for He has blessed us with each other and a solid believer for every heathen. Thank you Lord for blessing me with the brothers and sister that You have sent to lead to salvation those whom I would have cast away.

And one other prayer request,
one of ours, a freeper, yesterday spent the day taking an exam, now while I cannot tell you much about this, I can tell you this, what he is doing, if he passes this exam, will allow him the opportunity to spread the word of God into the highest levels of Chinese society and rule. So, please take a moment to ask the Lord to be with him today and to help him recover from yesterday.

The Lord JESUS be with you all, amen.

Today the Sermon on the Mount, but first..

For the last few days, the big news has been the drought in much of the farm land of the USA. The nightly news, with the left wing media, tells us it is the work of mother nature, who ever that is. I will tell you it is the work of God and if we want it to stop then we should turn away from our satanistic ways and do what is right in His sight. Stop killing babies!

The second thing I wanted to mention is this. What President Clinton is doing, by exploiting the pain and suffering a young family over the death of their six year old daughter is disgusting, repugnant, uncalled for and could only be done by a person who has no respect for the life of a child nor the suffering of the parents who lose a child. For months after the death of my youngest son in an automobile accident, we could have easily been manipulated by unsavory, corrupt and degenerate politicians, looking to use a tragic set of circumstances to further their own political agenda. As a matter of fact, we were. There were those shameless individuals within Maine State Government who used the death of our son, who was driving and not wearing a seat belt, to pass a seat belt law in Maine. They were beneath contempt, Clinton's actions are even worse. For a politician to manipulate a parent whose six year old daughter was killed with a gun fired by another six year old is worthy of impeachment. The NRA is right, Clinton is using the blood of this little girl to satisfy his own perverted and disgusting agenda, all should take careful note of who follows his lead and commend those who have the dignity, honesty, integrity and courage to oppose this evil evil man.

Now, if you have your Bible, turn with me to Matthew the fifth chapter.

The question has been asked "How can God hate the sin and the sinner in light of Matthew 5:44&45. In order to answer that question, we need to see the context in which the Lord was speaking. This is a part of the sermon on the mount and must be looked at as such, so let's start with verse 27.

Matthew 5:27-48

Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths: But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also. And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?

Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Ok, who is the Lord Jesus talking to? Jesus was talking to devout Jews, ones who had followed Him to hear Him and were spending the day listening to Him preach. He was explaining to them that with His coming a new time had dawned, that He is the Messiah and that from this time forward times were changed. For up until this time, the Jews were to keep themselves separate from the heathen people of the land, they were not to intermarry, they were not to have dealings with non Jews. But now, with His coming, a new group of elect would be, that group being His believers, His followers, Born Again Christians. And from a very soon to happen time, the Holy Spirit would live within believers allowing believers to be in constant contact with God. Jesus was telling us that with this new happening, with His coming and His upcoming sacrifice, all peoples would have a easy way to salvation, salvation would no longer be just for the Jews, it would be for anyone who Believed upon His name. Therefore all men could be brothers through Him.

God's love is the blood shed by Jesus, His love is that any and all can be cleaned and be adopted sons and daughters, simply by accepting Jesus as Lord, Saviour, Master and Creator. Once a sinner does that, he or she is a child of God. But those who don't are going to hell. His love is that He allows us to judge ourselves, He has given us the ability to free ourselves or condemn ourselves. We are all sinners, but once a sinner accepts the Lord, they are no longer just plain sinners, they are now sinners who are members of the family of God, those who are not part of the family, although they may live what they consider good lives, are going to hell. Not by God's condemnation, but by their own action or inaction. These unrepentant sinners are hated by God for how else could God let someone go to an eternity of hell if they were not hated.

Let me give you and example. In Leviticus 20:13 it says "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them." Let us look at two homosexuals, one accepts the Lord and complies with what is necessary to be Saved, the other doesn't. Both die the very next day in a car accident, the repentant homosexual goes to heaven the unrepentant goes to hell. Given time, the repentant homosexual would have changed his ways, for once a man really accepts Christ, the Holy Spirit moves within that man and starts the ever so slow process of changing that mans life.

Hope this answers the question. The Lord thy God be with you.

God chastises those He loves, but...

I love the way the liberal theologians come up with horse dung to make the sinner feel more comfortable with his or her sin. They say "God loves the sinner, but hates the sin". Horse dung! God loves neither the sinner nor the sin, God so hates sin that He came to earth in the form of a man named Jesus to shed His perfect blood so as to give sinful man a way to be forgiven. And that way is through repentance, true and absolute repentance and acceptance of Jesus as the Christ, the Messiah, God! And by doing that God proved His love for His creation and His desire to give all a way to be forgiven, but do not think for even a moment that God loves you while you are yet living an unrepentant life in your sin.

Let's look at a verse or two if we may:

Leviticus 26:27-33

And if ye will not for all this hearken unto Me, but walk contrary unto Me; Then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins. And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat. And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and My soul shall abhor you. And I will make your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not smell the savour of your sweet odours. And I will bring the land into desolation: and your enemies which dwell therein shall be astonished at it. And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste.

Now, as harsh as that sounds, it is nothing but a spanking in the eyes of God, for when God hates, He does not chastise, but utterly destroys.

Genesis 19:24-28

Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; And He overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. But Lots wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the LORD: And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.

The plain in which Sodom and Gomorrah stood was up until that time so fertile that given the choice of dwelling there or in the mountains, Lot had chosen the plain, yet after God got through with it, it became so desolate that to this day nothing grows there. Nothing!

God loves neither sin nor sinner, but He has given the sinner a way to become forgiven, for He loves His creation. Man. And all men are sinners. To be loved, one must be an adopted son of God, to be an adopted son of God, one must truly repent, confess that Jesus is God, invite and accept Jesus into your life, not as a friend but as your Lord, Master and Creator. And then you must confess Jesus with your mouth. In other words, you can't just take your salvation and hide it under a basket, you must acknowledge that Jesus is the Christ, that He is your Lord and Master!

So, what about you? Are you one who will be chastised? Or one who will be destroyed? Your choice, read between the lines of God's word, make it comply with your life style and go to hell. Or take His word literally, do as He commands and go to heaven. And that's what choice is all about, not whether or not your going to kill the baby in your womb, but whether or not your going to kill your soul.

God loves the repentant sinner!

One dreams another interprets.

Something falls out of the sky and starts a fire in Arkansas, and nobody seems to know what it was or where it came from. Tornadoes now rage all year long in these United States, the weather service seems just about as confused about this as those in the path. Two nights ago, March 9th, 2000, right here in Maine, we had one of the fiercest thunder and lighting storm I have ever seen. This is Maine, this is winter, we don't have thunder and lightning storm in the winter in Maine, yet we did. And no one seems to know why.

So, what's going on?

I don't know, but one thing I do know is this, if these things are warnings from God Almighty, you can bet He made his intentions clear to someone some where in a dream. For God Almighty, creator of heaven and earth, always warns before He strikes, we just sometimes miss the dream and the interpretation. For one dreams and another interprets.

Genesis 41:1-32

And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river. And, behold, there came up out of the river seven well favoured kine and fatfleshed; and they fed in a meadow. And, behold, seven other kine came up after them out of the river, ill favoured and leanfleshed; and stood by the other kine upon the brink of the river. And the ill favoured and leanfleshed kine did eat up the seven well favoured and fat kine. So Pharaoh awoke.

And pharoah slept and dreamed the second time: and, behold, seven ears of corn came up upon one stalk, rank and good. And, behold, seven thin ears and blasted with the east wind sprung up after them. And the seven thin ears devoured the seven rank and full ears. And Pharaoh awoke, and, behold, it was a dream.

And it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled; and he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt, and all the wise men thereof: and Pharaoh told them his dream; but there was none that could interpret them unto Pharaoh. Then spake the chief butler unto Pharaoh, saying, I do remember my faults this day: Pharaoh was wroth with his servants, and put me in ward in the captain of the guard's house, both me and the chief baker: And we dreamed a dream in one night, I and he; we dreamed each man according to the interpretation of his dream. And there was there with us a young man, an Hebrew, servant to the captain of the guard; and we told him, and he interpreted to us our dreams; to each man according to his dream he did interpret. And it came to pass, as he interpreted to us, so it was; me he restored unto mine office, and him he hanged.

Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him hastily out of the dungeon: and he shaved himself, and changed his raiment, and came in unto Pharaoh. And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is none that can interpret it: and I have heard say of thee, that thou canst understand a dream to interpret it. And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace.

And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, In my dream, behold, I stood upon the bank of the river: And, behold, there came up out of the river seven kine, fatfleshed and well favoured; and they fed in a meadow: And, behold, seven other kine came up after them, poor and very ill favoured and leanfleshed, such as I never saw in all the land of Egypt for badness: And the lean and the ill favoured kine did eat up the first seven fat kine: And when they had eaten them up, it could not be known that they had eaten them; but they were still ill favoured, as at the beginning. So I awoke. And I saw in my dream, and, behold, seven ears came up in one stalk, full and good: And, behold, seven ears, withered, thin, and blasted with the east wind, sprung up after them: And the thin ears devoured the seven good ears: and I told this unto the magicians; but there was none that could declare it to me.

And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one: God hath shewed Pharaoh what he is about to do. The seven good kine are seven years; and the seven good ears are seven years: the dream is one. And the seven thin and ill favoured kine that came up after them are seven years; and the seven empty ears blasted with the east wind shall be seven years of famine. This is the thing which I have spoken unto Pharaoh: What God is about to do he sheweth unto Pharaoh. Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt: And there shall arise after them seven years of famine; and all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine shall consume the land; And the plenty shall not be known in the land by reason of that famine following; for it shall be very grievous. And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice; it is because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.

So, with the things going on today, where is he who dreamed and where is he with the interpretation from God above? I don't know, but this I do know, we had best get our act together for thunderstorms in Maine in the winter should be a warning to all.

The Lord be with you and for those who doubt, sorry you can't see this, but if you wish to, just read John 3:1-18 till you understand and comply and then you too will see that thunderstorms do not happen in Maine in winter.

Salvation is by Grace, proof is by works!

You can neither work your way into heaven or hell, but by being negligent, you'll soon find that the default is hell. Hell for all eternity, dark, dank, painful, suffering and separation from the Lord for all eternity, not a few years, not a few million years, but all eternity.

Jesus tells ut that salvation is only through Him, no other way is acceptable nor even possible.

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. John 3:3

The Lord continued by saying:

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.

He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
John 3:16-18

You must be Born Again by believing totally in and on the Lord Jesus as the Son of God, the Messiah, God in the form of Man.

But, what about works, what about deeds, where do they come in? They my friends prove your belief in the Lord, for the Lord also said, and read this carefully;

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. John 14:21

Those that keep the commandments of Jesus are those that love Him and those that love Jesus, Jesus loves! What are the commandments of Jesus? Do they not require the Born Again believer to do things, do deeds, do good works?

Trust no man for your salvation, trust God, test every word of man against the written word of God, the Holy Bible, His book, His letter to you, His owners manual. For He is the owner, He is the Creator, He is God, and it is HE and only He who will decide to let you in or condemn you to hell. Take His words literally, don't read between the lines, don't rationalize, take every word in the Bible as a command.

The Lord JESUS be with you all, amen.

How hard will it be to forgive Senator McCain?

In the coming days Senator McCain will have to come out and acknowledge the fact that he has lost and Governor Bush will be the nominee of the Republican party. How hard do you think that will be? Let me tell you, it will be one of the more difficult things he has done to this date. How do I know, well, I've lost hotly contested primary races and it is hard to look your opponent in the eye and congratulate him. It's even harder to forgive him for the things he said. In this case, it will be just as difficult for Governor Bush. For the things that Senator McCain said cut deep and drew blood.

There is another group that must forgive Senator McCain as well, and that is the group we call, the Born Again Christian community. For those things Senator McCain called Pat Robinson and Jerry Falwell, he called all of us. For the things he accused Bob Jones University of, he accused all of us of.

Yesterday, Logo talked about forgiveness, eloquently and appropriately, for forgiving is commanded by the Lord.

Matthew 6:9-15

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Forgive men or God will not forgive you. But, what if you have been hurt as bad as Senator McCain has hurt Governor Bush, Jerry Falwell, the students and staff of Bob Jones University or Pat Robinson or, for that matter, any of the family of God who were cut by the Senators stinging remarks? Must we still forgive? Must we forgive the repeated attacks and slanders on us and our family by Senator McCain?

Matthew 18:21-22
Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

Forgiveness, probably the single most difficult thing a Christian is called upon to do. But one that is not arbitrary, not an option, but a commandment of Christ Jesus, with a price to stiff to pay for ignoring it or choosing to not do it.

Matthew 18:23-35
Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants. And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents. But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made. The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt. But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest. And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.

So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done. Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me: Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee? And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.

So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.

So, yes, we and Governor Bush must forgive Senator McCain, as we must forgive our brother Gary Bauer as well. For the Lord Jesus has told us that if we don't forgive them, HE will not forgive us. And without His forgiveness, we have no salvation.

So, how do we do it? How do we bring ourselves to forgive the horrible things Senator McCain accused us of?

We go to the Lord in prayer, we put it on His shoulders, we let Him help us to forgive and forget. For our sins are more grievous against the Lord then the things that John McCain did to us.

The Lord Jesus be with us all, as we work to reflect on what Logo's reminded us of, the need to forgive. For while Logo's reminded us of it, it is the Lord Jesus Christ who has commanded us to do it.

And to those whom I have cut, I ask your forgiveness and to those who have cut me, I offer my forgiveness. For service to the Lord is to important to be compromised by petty grudges.

Thank you Jon, and may our Lord in heaven bless you for the blessing that you have brought here and to me. Amen.

Daily thought Wednesday March 8th, 2000 (6318 AC)

A special Lent thought by Jon, a pastor in central Kentucky

Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.

Remember that you are dust,

and to dust you shall return.

These are the words that each penitent hears intoned as the priest or minister makes the mark of the cross on his or her forehead during the special worship service held each year on Ash Wednesday. Sobering words, indeed. They are intended to remind all who hear them that it is the dust of the earth from which we come, and dust we will be again without the Spirit of God breathed into us.

The Lord is risen indeed! Alleluia!

These are the words heard by all who come to worship forty days after Ash Wednesday, on Easter morning. Words meant to convey without any equivocation a new beginning, new life brought forth from the depths of the earth, new life and a new way of life for all who call on the name of the risen Lord Jesus.

Like so much of what we find in the Christian faith we find here a reversal of the normal. Instead of life ending in death, here we discover that death results in new life. But why should we find this so startling? Isn't this what we see every year, year after year in the temperate zones?

Just last autumn we watched the leaves fall from the trees, grasses and shrubs turn brown, shrivel up and die, birds fly away to warmer climes, and many of the animals of the field hide themselves away in burrows and caves, even crevices in the cold, hard ground. Yet, suddenly, as the days grow longer and temperatures start to rise what appeared to be a drear, deadly landscape comes back to life. Birds return, trees and shrubs begin to show buds, small animals of the fields and alleyways begin to show themselves again, and even we humans, grown tired of trudging through slush and mud begin to smile again. New life! What was dead is alive again!
Alleluia!

It happens so often that we no longer pay much attention to it. "It's just the way nature is," we say, and go on about our normal routines, not even noticing the miracles all around us.

The season of Lent in the Christian faith is a period of repentance and renewal. A time to reflect on the past year, call to mind those sins we have committed, or worse, those righteous things we failed to do, repent of our misdeeds and begin the renewal of our hearts, minds and souls so that we can arise on Easter morning new and fresh, ready to try again in the New Day of our risen Lord. We Christians do this every year in Lent.

And because we Christians are fallen human beings every year we fail. Every year we repent the sins and omissions of the past year. Every year we resolve to do better than we did in the previous year. Every year we fail. And every year we repent, pray for forgiveness, and resolve to better in the coming year.

Every year we travel symbolically from death to new life.

Many of the citizens of Free Republic are Christians - but not all. Of those of us who are Christians, we come in many different "public faces" - Catholic and Protestant (and among those even further divisions - fundamentalist, charismatic, Pentecostal, Reformed, evangelical) and Orthodox. Citizens of Free Republic who are not of the Christian faith are atheists, agnostics, Jewish, Muslim and Buddhists (those are the ones I have met; if I missed anyone, no slight is intended). The citizens of Free Republic also embrace more than a few political ideologies - conservative, libertarian, republican, even some liberals - as well as represent several different political parties: Republican Party, Libertarian Party, Conservative Party, Reformed Party.

One would not be too far off if one suggested that there are as many reasons for we FReepers to disband in ever-increasing acrimony as there are reasons for us to come and reason together. In fact, one wonders at times why we keep coming back at all, we argue and squabble and fight so strenuously and so often.

Let us use this season of Lent, if not as Christians all, at least in an attempt to accomplish its intended purpose - repentance and renewal. The renewal of Free Republic.

Have you "flamed" anyone in the past year? I have. I resolve to do better. Have you attacked another FReeper personally, rather than engage his argument? I have. I resolve to do better. Have you violated the rules of the forum? I have. I resolve to do better.

You get the idea. Repentance and renewal. Let us resolve to use these forty days between Ash Wednesday and Easter for the renewal of Free Republic. Will we fail? Yes, we will. Will I fail? I have no doubt that I will fail. But I am resolved to do better this coming year than I did in the past year. How about you?

We can come together, respecting each other's differences, or we can split up into factions and reduce this wonderful forum to a cacophony - a cyber Tower of Babel. And then the words intended to start us on a road to renewal will become our epitaph:

Remember that you are dust,

and to dust you shall return.

Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent for the Christian church. Lent is a time for a renewal in faith. It comes at the time of year when the very earth is in renewal. Let us at Free Republic, in the spirit of renewal, reflect on those things which we hold in common, and resolve to respect each other as individual human beings made in the image of God when our opinions and beliefs differ. We can strengthen each other, or we can tear each other down. One is renewal and new spirit; the other is death, if not literally, then figuratively. Peace to all.

Thank you Jon and God bless you,
Bob

Are you voting today? Take your armour!

Are you voting today? Take your armour!

Do you live in one of the states holding primaries today? Are you Born Again? Are you Pro-Life? Not as Senator McCain and Governor Bush are Pro Life, but really Pro-Life? If so, it is time for you to gird yourself with the word of God and go vote. Vote not for the lesser of the two evils, vote not for one of the darlings of the anti-Christian, satan worshiping press, vote for he whom God has placed the truth in his heart. Vote for Alan Keyes! How can you go to the polls and vote for those whom the pundits and the left wing liberal anti-child, pro-abortion, anti-constitutionalist are shoving down your throats? Vote for Alan Keyes, send a strong message to the leftist in the press corps, that you will follow the word of God not the word of pond scum satan worshiping pro abortion baal worshipers legends in their own minds on television and in the press. Remember they shoved Bill Clinton down your throats, don't let them do it again.

If you live in California, how can you stay home? How can you stay home and watch the attack going on against the Son of God and His word? Go vote Yes on 22 and for Alan Keyes. There will come a time when you will stand before God Himself, what will you say? "Oh Lord, I didn't want to get out of bed". " Lord it was such a nice day, I wanted to take the kids to the beach." " Lord you didn't really mean me when your word spoke about honesty, integrity and doing what is right in your sight did You?"

The Lord does not tell you to hide in caves, He commands each and every Born Again believer to ... Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15.
While not all can go out and preach to dogs, cats, beasts of the field and the guy down the street, everyone can preach with their vote. When you cast a vote for Preposition 22 and Dr. Alan Keyes, you are clearly and emphatically shouting out for all to hear that you support the word of God, that you support marriage as it is in the Bible, between one man. and one woman. That you support the life of the baby in the womb and only Alan Keyes is truly articulating that. Gov. Bush named a highway after an abortionist that had murdered one 15 year old girl while killing her baby and has numerous malpractice cases against him. Senator McCain has shown his open hate and disgust for all Christians by his insistent attempts to put a wedge between Christians of various denominations and by his snarling hatred of members of the Christian clergy and a Christian college.

As a Born Again believer, it is your responsibility to go and vote, it is your responsibility to vote for what is right, not what is the lesser of the two evils, you can not stay home and you can not vote against Keyes by voting for the two pro abortionist. In California your staying home is the same as voting for preposition 22 and that is the same as spitting in God's face, for God Himself speaks against homosexuality and for marriage between a man and a woman.

God did not create Adam and John, He created Adam and Eve!

Romans 13:12-14
The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of Light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

Ephesians 6:11-13
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

So, my friends, Brothers and Sisters, put on the full armour of God and do what is right, vote Pro Life and Pro Family. Vote for Alan Keyes in all states and for Alan and preposition 22 if you live in California.

The Lord Jesus be with you all,
Bob

Can we sin against other than God almighty?

Can we sin against other than God almighty?

Every once in a while I get a question that is so thought provoking that I can not seem to put it out of my mind. These questions end up first as daily thoughts and later become full blown sermons. Once such question is this: "When we sin do we sin only against God or can we also sin against our fellow man?" The question came from the FreeRepublic.com political forum where the Christian thoughts appear daily. And was asked by a person with the screen name of ‘fleebag'. Now before I continue and you go looking for the link from the church link page to FreeRepublic.com, don't bother. The owner of the site, Jim Robinson has to this point in time, not given us permission to place a link from the church to Free Republic.

Now, back to the question, when you sin, do you sin against God and man or God only? Not an easy question to answer, for while the Bible is loaded with verses making it very apparent that sin is against God and that HE does not like it, tolerate it, condone it or allow it, the Bible sheds little light on the question of man sinning against man. Oh, yes, throughout the Word of God we find that we should not harm one another, steal from one another or lie to one another, but it is not referred to as sinning against one another.

Judges 11:26-27

26 While Israel dwelt in Heshbon and her towns, and in Aroer and her towns, and in all the cities that be along by the coasts of Arnon, three hundred years? why therefore did ye not recover them within that time?
27 Wherefore I have not sinned against thee, but thou doest me wrong to war against me: the LORD the Judge be judge this day between the children of Israel and the children of Ammon.

Now in the above verses, we see the king of Israel telling the king of Ammon that they, Israel had not sinned against him nor his people. This would indicate that a nation can sin against another nation and that perhaps a man can sin against another man, but, the act of sin is so grievous that God sent Himself as His Son Jesus to hang on the cross to atone for our inherited sin nature that started with the somewhat simple and what would appear to many as a minor act of disobedience. The eating of the forbidden fruit by Eve and then Adam.

Think about it for a moment, sin is so grievous to God the Creator, that even for what would seem to be a slight digression from the rules, resulted in the Blood of God being shed to atone for it; and to give us a way back into the grace and kingdom of God. Because of the seriousness of sin, I would have to say, that while we can harm one another, we can kill one another, I am not sure we sin against one another, I tend to think we only sin against God.

Look here:

Matthew 6:7-15

7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask Him.
9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

In Matthew, the Lord is quoted as referring to debts and trespasses, yet, in Luke, the Lord is quoted as saying sins.

Luke 11:1-4

1 And it came to pass, that, as Jesus was praying in a certain place, when He ceased, one of His disciples said unto Him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.
2 And Jesus said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.
3 Give us day by day our daily bread.
4 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.

In Matthew, Jesus tells us to forgive our fellow man for debts and trespasses, yet in Luke, He very clearly says sins, yet, I'm not sure He is not saying in verse four, "And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us." That we should ask God to forgive us our sins and man to forgive us our debts.

The Lord thy God be with you all, may He take the time to help you hunger for His word and lead you in your study to understand that which He has spoken in His book, the Holy Bible. Amen

The Lord Jesus be with you, amen.

Once Saved always Saved?

I don't think so, oh how often I hear folks saying "once saved always saved". And I wonder to myself where they get that idea, for there is no indication in the Word of God, the Holy Bible that that is the case. For it is Once truly Saved, always Saved.

When Jesus, accepted someone's repentance and forgave them, He didn't say, "Thy sins are forgiven go and do as you want", the Messiah said:

John 8:11
She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

Look, salvation is by grace, no man can work his way into heaven, but salvation is only for those who have accepted Jesus as Lord and Saviour, those who have fallen down on their knees, broken and begging for the Lord to take over their lives, to come and dwell within them, those who have placed their ear against the door frame, waiting for the Lord, their Master, to come and put His awl through their ear, those who have given themselves to the Lord, not as friends, but as bond servants, as slaves, as creations willing to do whatever it is that He would have them do. Folks who by their very works you know to be Born Again. Not those who simply claim to be Born Again, but those who do all they can to emulate the Lord, while understanding that they are but human creation a million miles yet only a fraction of an inch from being perfect.

Turn with me to:

2 Corinthians 11:15

Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

Ephesians 2:10
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Ephesians 5:9-11
(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

Colossians 1:20-23
And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight: If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;

1 Timothy 2:9-13
In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve.

1 Timothy 6:17-19
Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

Titus 1:16
They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

Titus 2:7
In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,

Titus 3:5-8
Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and

Hebrews 10:23-25
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

James 2:14-17
What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

James 2:18-22
Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?

1 Peter 2:12
Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.

Friends and brothers, if your works do not prove your salvation, you are not truly Saved and if not truly Saved, you are on your way to hell! Don't buy the garbage about once saved always saved, there is no Scripture to prove that. Many claim to be saved, but are not, those who are, you and the Lord Jesus will know by their works. A doctor who is Saved will not do abortions or research using the bodies of little innocent babies that were slaughtered and harvested out of their mothers wombs.

Liken a Saved person to two men eating fish, one man picks through the fish looking for bones, the other eats with relish while savoring the deliciousness of the fish and if he comes across a bone, he sets it aside to use for some purpose when he understands the purpose it can be used for.

The unsaved is the man looking for bones, for he will not read the word of God to be filled, but to rationalize his own sin by his own private interpretation, he is the man who sits and listens to the pastor only to find fault. While the second man reads to be filled by the Spirit of God when he understands not, he asks the help of the Lord his God and waits for the Lord's timing to reveal that verse's meaning to him, he listens to the Pastor for the word of God, not looking to nitpick, but to be feed, knowing that the Pastor is human and is libel to say something that may be misunderstood by him

Remember, salvation is not by works, but by what Jesus did on the cross, there is no salvation without the Lord, but you will know who is and who isn't Saved, by their works.

The Lord Jesus be with you all, may He help you to understand and abide by His Word.

Let no man deceive you, test every word by that which is written in the Holy Word of God, the Bible, for all men are human and not infallible, Only God is infallible, trust God not man.

It is time for Christians to be armed!

In recent times we have seen absolute hostility towards the Christian community. Now I'm not talking about you social club Christians, you have no hostility towards you and why should you? For you have turned from the God of Redemption to the god of get along, follow the rules, protect the child murdering scum in the white house and the abortion mill. So, why would anyone of the world hold any hostility towards you, you're on your way to hell with them. Satan already has your infant blood soaked soul.

No, I'm talking about those few Christians that put Jesus first and foremost, that worship Jesus not just with candles and pretty little hymns that talk about flowers and earth and mundane things of the earth. But those who fall on their faces, those who cry tears of joy, pain and suffering, those who grieve for this nation and it's way of life, those who practice what they preach and know that God wrote the book we call the Bible and that HE said exactly what HE meant and meant exactly what He said in His book.

Turn with me to the book of Luke:

Luke 22:35-38

And Jesus said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing. Then said He unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end. And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And Jesus said unto them, It is enough.

There is not one place in Scripture where God tells us to not defend our families. When you listen to those who preach turn the other cheek, read the verses yourself, God is talking about you turning your cheek when you are struck, not turning the other cheek when your loved ones are struck. Women have families, men protect them!

The Lord be with you, and if you are not armed, get armed, for the time comes when this Nazi loving government will do to the fundamental Christian what Hitler tried to do to the jews. But this time satan his minions his ilk and those who serve him knowingly and unknowing will be going after the real children of God, the Born Again washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian.

Christian get your gun, learn to use it, stay in prayer to the Lord and be prepared to defend your family, for there are no differences between Gore, Bradley, McCain and Bush! All are avowed friends of the world, therefore avowed enemies of the Christ. All are CFR members making all of them one world government lackeys.

Christ loving Christians, get a gun, learn to use it and be prepared to defend your families.

The Lord Jesus be with all of you who are His and may He protect us from those who are satan's.

" ...supreme law of the land." US Constitution Article six section six.

In the United States the Constitution is the supreme law of the land. Not the congress, not the president, not the oxymoron department we call justice. The US Constitution is the supreme law of the land and within that very document is the Bill of Rights; Article one of the Bill of Rights guarantees us the right to worship Jesus the Christ. It gives us the right to not just light candles and sing praise hymns, but to worship Him with every fiber of our body.

When we as a society, as a nation turn away from Him. After all the wonderful things HE has done for us, we do it not by the force of weapons or government, but by our love of and our desire for filthy lucre, food stamps, welfare and social security checks, for things of this earth and not of heaven.

Matthew 11:16-30

But whereunto shall I liken this generation?

It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows, And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.

For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil. The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.

Then began Jesus to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because they repented not:

Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you. And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.

At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight. All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Have we as a nation turned our backs on the Christ and turned instead to gold and silver, politics and politicians? Have we turned from God the Creator who gives us babies to satan who requires from his high priest the blood of those little ones? Could we change the name Capernaum to United States?

I would have to say yes, yes we have. For today we have laws protection the abortionist, the murder, the high priest of satan, while he slaughters the baby, the child in the womb.

The Lord Jesus be with you, amen.

McCain, Gore, Bradley one piece of cloth, one god, one message.

When you hear Senator McCain, Vice President Gore, and basketball ustabe Bradley talking about those who are Pro-Life fundamental Christians, it is reminiscent of how the Nazi's spoke of the jews, gypsies and fundamental Christians of the early 30's in Germany. The hatred that Hitler and his minions rained down on them, is much like what we hear out of the mouths of McCain, Gore and Bradley today. As Hitler condescended to and embraced the homosexuals and the murderers of the innocent, so do they. As Hitler despised God and the people of God, so do they.

With the beating we of the fundamental Christian Right are taking at the hands of the pro abortion left wing satan worshiping liberals of politics and the press, I thought perhaps it is time to look at what God has charged His preachers to tell His people.

Numbers 6:22-26

And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,

The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

And I say to you who are Born Again Christians; the Lord your God, Jesus, the Son, the Messiah, the Father and the Holy Ghost bless you, may They, the great He, the I Am, the holy Trinity keep you and yours safe, as a mother bird protects her chicks, so be the protection of the Lord thy God on thee and thine.

I pray and ask the Lord God above to always look to you, to never turn His back on you, to hear your prayers, your supplications, your praise and your request of Him. May HE when need be, approach you to direct and guide, to warn or to correct graciously, with kindness and love as to a begotten son or daughter.

I pray to the Almighty, the one and only Living God, the Creator of all things in and on earth and in the heavens above to look upon you with a smile and gentle love and to give you peace in all that you say, do and think.

And to those our enemies, I would remind God of His promise to Abraham, the promise that Isaac than gave to Jacob and through Jesus came to us His bond servants within the Born Again Christian body of Christ. To bless those that bless us and to curse those that curse us.
Amen.

So, shall we let the Lord our God deal with them?

In 1776 it was legal for the British to invade a man's home, confiscate his goods, go through his papers, imprison him and even execute him without a trial. Legal yes, was it just? no. So, the Lord Jesus raised up George Washington to lead an army of Christian warriors to rescue this nation and free God's people from their British lords.

In 1850 it was legal for a white man to own, enslave, beat, rape and murder people who had committed no crime other than that of being born black. Was it legal? Yes. Was it just? No. So the Lord raised up Abraham Lincoln to lead Christian men to battle to once more reverse an unjust law.

In 1940, the German people raped, killed, enslaved and confiscated people and goods. They did this not only because it was legal, but because the government demanded it. The crime these people had committed? They were jews, gypsies or devote fundamental Christians. While today we look back and refer to that period of time as the Holocaust, in 1939 it was legal, not just, but legal and the law of the land. And once again God raised up an army to end the slaughter and bring to justice those who committed the atrocities.

In 1973 the Supreme Court of the United States declared it legal to murder the baby in the womb, since that time, the world has never seen such carnage, such slaughter, while the murderers and the government that made this unjust murder legal claim to have killed, only 65 million or so babies, estimates run to 100 plus million dead babies. Is it just? No! Is it legal? Sadly, yes. But, this time it seems that the Lord is not going to raise up one to lead Christians to battle to end this murder of the child of God in the womb. There seems to be no Washington or Lincoln on the horizon and it seems that if one were to appear, not only would the heathen murders denounce him, the government use all of it's resources to hunt him down and kill him, but the liberal self proclaimed Christian also joins in the condemnation of anyone willing to risk life and liberty to rescue even one of these little ones from the knife, vacuum, chemicals and horror of the abortionist.

Does that mean the Lord has turned a deaf ear to that which He created and are so callously murdering? No!
Does it mean that He condones this slaughter as some on the pulpit would lead you to believe? No!

So, what does it mean? Why has the Lord not raised up one to end this killing of babies that can not run, hide nor fight back?

If you have your Bibles, turn with me to Isaiah chapters 36 and 37.

Isaiah 36:1-22

Now it came to pass in the fourteenth year of king Hezekiah, that Sennacherib king of Assyria came up against all the defenced cities of Judah, and took them. And the king of Assyria sent Rabshakeh from Lachish to Jerusalem unto king Hezekiah with a great army. And he stood by the conduit of the upper pool in the highway of the fuller's field. Then came forth unto him Eliakim, Hilkiah's son, which was over the house, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah, Asaph's son, the recorder. And Rabshakeh said unto them, Say ye now to Hezekiah, Thus saith the great king, the king of Assyria, What confidence is this wherein thou trustest?

I say, sayest thou, (but they are but vain words) I have counsel and strength for war: now on whom dost thou trust, that thou rebellest against me? Lo, thou trustest in the staff of this broken reed, on Egypt; whereon if a man lean, it will go into his hand, and pierce it: so is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all that trust in him.

But if thou say to me, We trust in the LORD our God: is it not he, whose high places and whose altars Hezekiah hath taken away, and said to Judah and to Jerusalem, Ye shall worship before this altar?

Now therefore give pledges, I pray thee, to my master the king of Assyria, and I will give thee two thousand horses, if thou be able on thy part to set riders upon them. How then wilt thou turn away the face of one captain of the least of my master's servants, and put thy trust on Egypt for chariots and for horsemen? And am I now come up without the LORD against this land to destroy it? the LORD said unto me, Go up against this land, and destroy it.

Then said Eliakim and Shebna and Joah unto Rabshakeh, Speak, I pray thee, unto thy servants in the Syrian language; for we understand it: and speak not to us in the Jews' language, in the ears of the people that are on the wall. But Rabshakeh said, Hath my master sent me to thy master and to thee to speak these words? hath he not sent me to the men that sit upon the wall, that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss with you? Then Rabshakeh stood, and cried with a loud voice in the Jews' language, and said, Hear ye the words of the great king, the king of Assyria. Thus saith the king, Let not Hezekiah deceive you: for he shall not be able to deliver you. Neither let Hezekiah make you trust in the LORD, saying, The LORD will surely deliver us: this city shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria. Hearken not to Hezekiah: for thus saith the king of Assyria, Make an agreement with me by a present, and come out to me: and eat ye every one of his vine, and every one of his fig tree, and drink ye every one the waters of his own cistern; Until I come and take you away to a land like your own land, a land of corn and wine, a land of bread and vineyards.

Beware lest Hezekiah persuade you, saying, The LORD will deliver us. Hath any of the gods of the nations delivered his land out of the hand of the king of Assyria? Where are the gods of Hamath and Arphad? where are the gods of Sepharvaim? and have they delivered Samaria out of my hand? Who are they among all the gods of these lands, that have delivered their land out of my hand, that the LORD should deliver Jerusalem out of my hand?

But they held their peace, and answered him not a word: for the king's commandment was, saying, Answer him not. Then came Eliakim, the son of Hilkiah, that was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah, the son of Asaph, the recorder, to Hezekiah with their clothes rent, and told him the words of Rabshakeh.

Israel is in trouble, the Assyrian king, Sennacherib has come up against Jerusalem with a huge army, those inside the gates of Jerusalem are both surrounded and outnumbered, they are about to get slaughtered. Just like the baby in the womb. And then, watch what happens.

Isaiah 37:1-5

And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the LORD. And he sent Eliakim, who was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests covered with sackcloth, unto Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz.

And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and of blasphemy: for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth. It may be the LORD thy God will hear the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God, and will reprove the words which the LORD thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that is left.

So the servants of king Hezekiah came to Isaiah.

So, the king of Israel asked Isaiah to pray for the people trapped inside Jerusalem, and Isaiah did and God heard his prayer and this is what happened:

Isaiah 37:33-37

Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the king of Assyria, he shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shields, nor cast a bank against it. By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city,
saith the LORD. For I will defend this city to save it for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake.

Then the angel of the LORD went forth, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.

So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh.

I think that God Himself is going to deal with the abortion crowd. He may be waiting for His own time or He may be waiting for us to ask Him in prayer. Not casual prayer, but the type of prayer that got Peter out of jail back around AD 40.

Acts 12:5-11

Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.

And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison. And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands. And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me. And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.

When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him. And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews.

Look here: "prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him." What kind of prayer? Continuous prayer, not by a few, but by the entire church. Let us ask God to do to the abortionist, his minions, his ilk and those who serve him knowingly and unknowingly to do unto them what He did to Sennacherib army. And let us place in His hands those who defend the abortionist and those who oppose our asking Our God to end the slaughter and be the strong shield of the baby in the womb.

When God comes into your life, do you wag your tail?

Mac and I were talking one day, we were talking about how when you see a dog waiting in a car or truck for his master or mistress, you can tell when they're coming by the way the dog goes spastic with joy as his master approaches. That got us to thinking and I asked him to write a thought about it, after a bit of hemming and hawing, I simply said, "Mac write the thought". At times, it is nice having members of your team who had spent the lions share of their lives in the Army, and below is a thought that should cause you to wonder about your own relationship with the Father above.

"Many of you do not really know me and that is the way I really wish it could remain. The fact is that I've been Pastor Bob's editor and proofreader since he began his cyber ministry. He has often referred to me as a "member of the pastoral team." My pastor has asked me to write a Christian Thought for the day. I protested long and loud that I am a lay person and not qualified to write such things.

I am not in the word as Pastor Bob is and I cannot quote scripture as he does. Despite his protestations that I read more scripture on a daily and weekly basis, as his proof reader, than most duly ordained people.

The first time that this came to me was when a long standing friend of mine was failing in health. This friend had been with me for many years in sickness and health in good times and in bad but unfailingly gave of his all. His love and devotion was unfailing right to the last.

This friend, was a dog, a dog I went to the pound and rescued off of "Death Row" I named him Auburn, Auburn was a Cocker Spaniel. And he came into my life and totally took it over. Oh, yes, he was not housebroken and I had to clean up after his messes but that too ceased with time.

He came into my life at the time I had just retired from twenty six years in the military and just gone through a bitter divorce which resulted in the loss of my children to my former wife. I will not belabor my reader with more right now.

I first became Born again about a year and a half ago and the change in my life has been profound. One day I see myself as Doubting Thomas and the next as Peter of the sword.. The thought that I gave to my pastor was The comparison of a relationship between a man and his dog as somewhat close to the relationship between God and one of his children.

The dog gives totally to his master as those who are born again in the Blood of Christ give to their master. The relationship is based on love, trust, and faith. This is where the relationship becomes almost blasphemous please bear with me. Is the bond between a man and his pet any different from that of a Born again Christian and his God?

The Born Again renew their commitment to the God that created them and nurtures them. They pass the term of their lives in this world and God calls them home. The bond between a man and his dog is somewhat the same. Auburn and I lived our lives together and we were happy in our lives.

About a month ago I saw that he was having difficulty just getting to his food and more just going out to "do his business" I spoke to the Vet and he encouraged me to bring Auburn in to be seen. The diagnosis was that he had terminal cancer and was in a lot of pain. There were drugs could make the pain go away but, the end would still be the same. He encouraged me to let him "put him down" to bring an end to the pain.

Being a hard head, I chose to take Auburn on a walk over his favorite path in the mountains and helped him to painlessly pass over. After he was over, I buried him there on the mountain where he had been free to roam as a puppy.

For any person who has brought an animal into their lives, the role of a caring God cannot but be clear. I AM NOT EQUATING MYSELF TO MY GOD.

This morning I read something on the net that brought all of this into sharp focus for me. A Vet was writing about having to "Put Down" a very much loved pet. After the pet had been put down, as parents, they were discussing why it was that God accorded a shorter life span to animals than to humans. As in the Bible a child showed them the way.

The youngster said "I understand" God brings people into the world to learn to love others and bring them happiness and to love God. Animals are born doing that and don't have to stay on this earth as long.

This is being done through tears and I'll leave it to pastor Bob to add the word. Yours in the Lord."

God the Father has commanded us to think about Him day and night, to be ready and waiting for Him at all times:

Deuteronomy 11:19
And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

God the Son, Jesus, the Messiah, has told us to be always thinking of Him and waiting for Him, to not push Him to the back of our minds nor put other thoughts or actions ahead of Him:

Matthew 24:36-42
But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Paul warns us to be constantly right with the Lord:

1 Thessalonians 5:2-3
For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

Peter put it this way:

2 Peter 3:9-10
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

Bottom line? Be like that puppy in the car, waiting for his master to return, always be waiting for the Lord, your Master, your Creator and always be excited about His coming and your going to be with Him.

So, are you and Auburn? Are you a puppy waiting for your master to return?

I thank you my friend for this thought and I ask God's blessings upon all those who read it. I thank You Lord for letting me post these thought here daily. May the Lord thy God bless you all. You and yours, may He keep you safe from the evil one, his minions. His ilk and those who serve him knowingly and unknowingly. May He help you to understand His word by putting the Holy Spirit within you.
Amen.

The Lord JESUS, the Messiah, the Christ be with you and within you, amen.

The bravest man to ever walk the earth.

Did you ever stop to think about just how brave the Lord was when He walked this sinful world with men and as a man? Jesus, the man, who as God the Father, created all things, put His earthly physical fate in the hands of His creations, took their insults, abuse, torture, slander and even allowed Himself to be used as the Lamb, as a sacrifice upon the unholy alter of the cross, all while suffering silently and putting His fate, trust and faith in the Father. For it was He in and as the Father, who created the earth just 4318 years or so before, He came to walk the earth as Jesus.

John 1:1-3

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The Same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made. The Word in verse 1, the Same in verse 2 and the Him in verse 3 are all Jesus.

Matthew 26:57-67

And they that had laid hold on Jesus led him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled. But Peter followed him afar off unto the high priest's palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end. Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death; but found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses, and said, "This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days." Notice the way they twisted the words Jesus spoke, just a little, but enough to change the meaning completley.

And the high priest arose, and said unto Him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee? But Jesus held His peace. And the high priest answered and said unto Him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.

Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard His blasphemy. What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death. Then did they spit in His face, and buffeted Him; and others smote the Lord with the palms of their hands,

Jesus could have spoken in His defense, He could have destroyed those whom He knew were to harm Him, He could have simply destroyed the earth and everything on it, but He didn't, He choose instead to stand tall, take what evil had to dish out and hold out hope, a hand and His blood for the salvation of all who understand and comply with what is written in John 3: 1-18.

May the Lord be with you all, may HE remove the scales from your eyes, the wax from your ears and the hardness from your hearts, may He help you, through the Holy Spirit to understand and abide by John 3:1-18. May He help us to be as strong as HE was, as we face this time we live in. Amen.

IF you're using the KJV, turn to Romans 16:24 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Are you a bump or a barrier?

Both the wide road to hell and the narrow path to heaven are full of bumps and barriers. Bumps on the road to hell and barriers on the narrow path to heaven. Which are you on? Are you on the narrow up hill path to heaven or the wide downhill boulevard to hell?

Either way, that path or that boulevard both have objects in the way attempting to turn you in the other direction?

Jesus tells us that there are but to the two roads to go, the two choices to make. Everything you do in life causes you to make a choice, one of those choices is right in the sight of the Lord and one is wrong. The woman about to have an abortion is making a choice right now. She is deciding to kill the baby or let the baby live. She is choosing to offer her baby up as a blood sacrifice to satan at the hands of the high priest of satan the abortionist or she is going to do what is right in the sight of the Lord and keep that baby safe and comfortable within the little room the Lord created within her to do just that thing. She can choice to be a murderess or a mother, not both.

Matthew 7:13-16

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.

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

If she opts to kill the baby, along the way, that wide boulevard, she will run into bumps, some small like this thought, some large, like Terry and those standing outside abortion mills begging her to turn back and reconsider and some moguls, like God's pricking of the conscience of that woman. But if she opts to do what is right and have that little gift of Joy the Lord created within her womb, then the barriers will come out, there will be planned parenthood, the abortion industry, those who support abortion and fear both the wrath of man and God, the councilors at school, the liberals preaching choice from the pulpit, Hollywood, Washington, the UN and her local state Government all of the forces of evil will come as barriers on that narrow little straight path to motherhood, life for your baby and doing what is right in the Sight of the Lord thy God.

As you choose life for both yourself and your baby, remember these things the Lord has said:
Luke 16:13

No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

And expect the world to shun you, turn from you and ridicule your decision, for:
John 15:18-21

If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.

The abortionist, his god, his minions and his ilk despised Jesus long before they despised you for deciding to do what is right and be a mother instead of a murderess. Decide today to take the narrow path evading the barriers of satan, and doing what is right in the sight of the Lord Jesus who created both you and that little one in your belly. Join with the Lord, accept Jesus and spend eternity with us serving God in heaven rather than exposing yourself to the perverted murderer that calls himself or herself an abortionist when in truth he or she is nothing but a priest of satan offering your baby as a blood sacrifice to the devil.

I pray that one day, you will tell the Lord that I was but a bump on the boulevard, a bump that gave you pause to think, take a breathe and turn up that narrow little path that will lead you away from satan and to the Christ, the Messiah, God Himself. Amen.

Jesus tells us we can not serve two masters, you can not be both Born Again and pro choice! You can not worship the God of life while supporting the murder of the unborn! The Lord JESUS be with those who are Born Again and may He guide and protect you and yours this day. And may HE deal with those who support abortion as they would deal with the baby HE has created and placed in that woman's womb. Amen.

Pro abortionists now lead in both the ‘major' parties.

There are times when even the vengeance of God doesn't seem to be enough. This morning while thinking of what apparently happened in Michigan and Arizona, I couldn't help but think of an email I got yesterday, an email that suggested that I read Psalm 91. And as you can see, I took that advice.

For in both states it seems that the forces determined to continue and to escalate the slaughter of the baby in the womb are not content to simply have two men arguing for the nomination on the democrat side about which would pass more legislation that would kill even more millions of these little ones, no, they want to ensure that a pro abortionist is on the Republican ticket as well. While I am confident that George Herbert Walker Bush Junior is no more pro Life than his namesake, he is less likely to approve an even higher rate of infanticide than is already taking place, but John McCain is a man that shares the common infant hating values of clinton, Snowe, Collins, Kennedy and planned parenthood.

Fortunately, these child murdering baby in the womb murderers have not been able to deter or derail Pat Buchanan in his quest for the Reform party nomination. And while the pro abortionists will have it appears the democrat and republican candidate in their pocket and pew, the Reform party candidate may bring a bit of sanity and love into the campaign.

Psalm 91

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For God shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. Because he hath set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

While the abortionists and those who defend them and protect them here on earth shout in glee as another baby is killed, as they protest the very idea that they would ever have an abortion of their own, they protest even louder the idea that one might ask God's vengeance upon abortionists and those who feed and protect them.

But, as we see in God's Psalms, God will protect the baby, and God will deal with those who are pro abortion. He will avenge the baby in the womb, maybe not in my life time, but avenge He will.

May the Lord be with you all and keep in mind, God is in control, not clinton, not McCain, not the murdering back shooting child killing abortionist protecting fbi and federal secret police, no, God is in control, He made earth and He controls earth and those who cross swords with Him will pay dearly throughout all eternity. For it is the High God and His Word we bestow both our faith and our future.

The Lord Jesus be with you all, may God bless you and yours this day that HE has given us. Taxes and war are given to us by the clinton's McCains and Snowes of the world, but to us this day, God has given the light and warmth of the sun, the air we breath, the water we drink and the Blood of His Son Jesus, who came to earth to give us the only way to get to heaven.

The Lord JESUS, the Messiah, the Christ be with you and within you, amen.

Oh how I thank God for the Holy Ghost.

Around 1971 years ago Jesus promised and sent the Holy Spirit or Ghost to be our comforter in times of trouble and in times of joy. For those who do not belong to the family of Christ, the travail of politics as usual must at times be almost unbearable. But as a child in the family of the Lord, politics as usual are but temporary bits of sand in a sandwich.

For no sooner does the child of God finish his or her Bible reading and prayers before bed, then the peace of the Lord is restored within him and he sleeps as soundly as the babe in the crook of his mothers arm.

Those who reject Christ toss and turn and look to the likes of McCain, clinton, Snowe, Collins, Kennedy and government for their rest, they look and look, but they receive neither rest nor peace and they deserve neither.

But for us who have accepted the Lord and have been welcomed into His family, it is a different story.

John 14:1-20

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know Him, and have seen Him.

Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

Jesus saith unto him,
Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, He doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. If ye love me, keep my commandments.

And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever; even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him: but ye know Him; for He dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

The peace offered by the Lord Jesus to those, His disciples, is also offered to us. Any man can have that peace, all one needs to do is repent and accept Christ Jesus as Messiah and God. All one needs to do is read and abide by that which is written in John the third chapter.

And remember,

when one gets to be to much of a burden, you, as Paul did, can turn them over to the Lord.

2 Timothy 4:14-18
Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works: Of whom be thou ware also; for he hath greatly withstood our words.

At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge. Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

But always be careful to resort to such, for Jesus tells us what is to happen to those whom you shake of the dust of your feet against.

The Lord, The Messiah, the Christ be with you and in your prayers, please thank God for sending Abraham Murray Cohen into my life, for thru him and his prayers am I here today. God's blessings be upon you Abe.

The Lord be with you all.

Gary Bauer was wrong, you can not support John McCain and be pro - Life!

When Gary Bauer threw in the towel and dropped out of the race for president, at first, I thought, "well he tried, he got the Pro-Life message out and he has nothing to be ashamed of." And then I saw Gary standing with and endorsing pro abortion candidate John McCain the war hero of the anti Vietnam War press. And I thought to myself, "What is he doing?"

If you are Pro-Life, Pro-Family and Pro-Christ and you're going to vote in the Republican primary, you can not be both Pro-Life and a supporter of John McCain.

Take a minute to read the thoughts of two other preachers.

FROM: Jerry Falwell

MORE ON THE BAUER-McCAIN FIASCO:

Yesterday, in my regularly- scheduled Falwell Confidential, I presented my reasons for differing with Gary Bauer, who has now backed the presidential candidacy of Arizona Sen. John McCain.

While I cannot legally endorse a candidate on behalf of my ministries, I personally endorsed George W. Bush months ago. I truly believe he is a man of honor, integrity and leadership skills. He knows Christ and he lives his faith every day. I admire him and believe he will be a great president, if God allows him to be elected.

With that said, I was terribly disappointed that Gary Bauer chose to support John McCain, whose policies dramatically counter those that Bauer espoused during his own presidential campaign. Bauer's endorsement of McCain is terribly alarming.

In addition, Dr. James Dobson, president of Focus on the Family - and Bauer's former boss - has now publicly stated his misgivings regarding Bauer's startling backing of John McCain. Following is Focus on the Family's entire press release regarding the Bauer announcement:

Colorado Springs -

Speaking as a private individual and not as the president of Focus on the Family, Dr. James Dobson expressed disagreement yesterday with former presidential candidate Gary Bauer's endorsement of Senator John McCain as Republican nominee for U.S. President. The Senator has offered no assurances that he intends to appoint a pro-life running mate or pro-life justices to the U.S. Supreme Court. Indeed, he voted for pro-abortion Stephen Breyer and pro-abortion ACLU activist Ruth Bader Ginsburg for that Court and for David Satcher for Surgeon General, who supports partial-birth-abortion. McCain also voted in support of President Clinton to expand fetal-tissue research.

Furthermore, McCain has accepted huge contributions from the gambling industry and apparently is comfortable with the proliferation of gambling in American society. He has also accepted large contributions from producers of alcohol. McCain is in favor of combat assignments for women in the military, and has sought and received enormous financial and political support from the Log Cabin Republicans and other homosexual activists. McCain also supports Most Favored Nation status for the brutal regime in China, and voted against our nation's monitoring of Communist Chinese commercial fronts operating the United States. He seeks to appease the bloated Federal public-school bureaucracy and has refused to support vouchers.

"The Senator," Dobson said, "is being touted by the media as a man of principle, yet he was involved with other women while married to his first wife, and was implicated in the so-called Keating scandal with four other senators. He was eventually reprimanded by the Congress for the 'appearance of impropriety.' The Senator reportedly has a violent temper, and can be extremely confrontational and profane when angry. These red flags about Senator McCain's character are reminiscent of the man who now occupies the White House.

Gary Bauer's endorsement of the Senator is troubling for another reason. When Clarence Thomas was being considered for Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, Mr. Bauer actively championed his candidacy. However, Warren Rudman, who is John McCain's National Campaign Chairman and his most likely choice for U.S. Attorney General, was a pro-abortion Senator who opposed confirmation of Clarence Thomas, despite the fact that he voted for him in order to get three federal judgeships approved. He said about the Thomas decision, "It's a vote I'm not proud of'."

Given these concerns about McCain, it is difficult to understand how Gary Bauer can support him "with great pride and with absolutely no reservation." This statement is not intended to imply Dr. Dobson's endorsement of anyone else's candidacy for the presidency - simply to clarify his lack of support for Senator McCain.

God has given us a nation were, we get to choose those who will serve us in the various offices of the land. He has also given us children. God gave these children to us, both expecting and demanding that we would care for them, feed them, clothe them, teach them and protect them.

A child is never more dependent upon us for those things then when it is a baby in the womb. Since that baby can not vote, you, must cast your vote for those who will serve and represent all human life, both outside the womb and within the womb. A vote for John McCain is a vote to continue the slaughter of the baby in the womb.

Think of what Jesus did on the cross for us, can we be so callous as to vote for a man who would slaughter and use for sick experimentation the greatest gift the Lord has given us besides salvation, our children.

Don't help to continue the slaughter of the innocent child in the womb, don't vote for John McCain. Bauer will not loose his salvation over his endorsement of pro abortion candidate John McCain, but, he'll never be invited to speak at our church again. For all actions have consequences, Bauer made a choice, it may have been his best choice for his political career, but it all but destroyed his credibility within the fundamental Christian community.

The Lord be with you all.

The Lord JESUS, the Messiah, the Christ be with you and within you, amen.

That's not the Grace of God!

Oh how often we hear people justify their sins and claim that they can do anything and be forgiven because of God's Grace. Politicians like Clinton claim they are Christians and have Faith, they lie, cheat, steal, commit treason and murder,

Clinton had them murdered!

They embrace homosexuality, lesbianism and abortion, all in the name of creating a better America, while supposedly sleeping soundly at night safe in the embrace of the Lord knowing forgiveness is just around the corner. All due to the overabundance and twisting of God's Grace.

Good morning.
Its time to wake up and take a hard look at just what God's Grace is. For God's Grace isn't ‘eat drink and be merry for tomorrow you'll ask for forgiveness'. It isn't "by God's Grace, no matter how I live God will forgive and let me into heaven".

God's Grace is that He didn't just destroy every living thing on earth around 4,000 AC, but instead came to earth as a man named Jesus and shed His blood, giving each of us an opportunity to Judge and sentence ourselves. Yes, judge and sentence ourselves. We can, through His Grace accept what He did, acknowledge Him and give ourselves to Him and sentence ourselves to an eternity of the wonders of heaven or we can judge ourselves guilty by rejecting Him and sentence ourselves to an eternity of pain, suffering, darkness in hell (read John 3:1-18).

1 Peter 1:1-11

1 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,
2 Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
10 Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.

It is through the Grace of God that He came to earth as Jesus to give us a way to escape damnation. Refusing to accept Jesus as the Messiah will get you nothing but an eternity of hell. Those who think that God's Grace means that all are forgiven and all will go to heaven regardless of their activities on earth are damning themselves to hell, don't let them take you with them.

The Lord JESUS, the Messiah, the Christ be with you and within you, amen.

What a liberal accuses one of is usually what the liberal is.

First I think it is important for one and all to understand this; I am not a Bush supporter, I remember George Sr. and I do not trust George Jr. That said, for Senator John McCain to accuse Gov. Bush of being anything like President Clinton is not only a lie, it is an outrage and demonstrates just how liberal John McCain is. If there is anything that all liberals share, it is their trait of accusing others of what they themselves are. Liberals like Clinton accuses others of being Nazis they do this as they gas and kill innocent men, women and children. Liberals like Olympia Snowe and Ted Kennedy accuse others of not caring about children, while they insist on more funding for partial birth abortions and see no wrong in killing a baby to sell its body parts for research, profit, candle making and worse.

It is time to look at McCain and see just how much alike he and Clinton are, for when he accuses of Bush of being corrupt, you can bet that what the liberal McCain is really saying is that he is corrupt. It is time that we as Americans stop buying the lie and the liar and start searching for, standing up for, voting for and selecting truth.

1 Peter 3:10-18

10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
11 Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.
12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
13 And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?
14 But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
16 Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
17 For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.
18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

And if that isn't convincing enough for you, God Himself has told us directly, as He walked the earth;

Matthew 10:28

28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear God which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Don't worry about Clinton, McCain, Snowe, Kennedy, their minions and their ilk for what can they do but kill your body? Fear God for it is God who will judge your heart and your actions the second you stand before Him, and it is He who can let you into heaven or damn you to and eternity of hell.

Trust God, vote Pro-Life!

Run from lying liberals, whether they be on the soap box or the pulpit. When you go to cast your vote, ask yourself this question, "Would I vote for this person, if Jesus were standing right here beside me asking me why I was voting for that person"? When your listening to your pastor preach on Sunday. Ask yourself this, "Would I invite Jesus to come hear him preach?"

Do nothing you would be ashamed to invite the Lord to join you in doing.

The Lord be with you all and may HE bless and keep you from harm, evil, temptation and agreeing with evil. May He this day give you and yours your daily bread, not just the bread for your stomach, but the bread of His word. For as Jesus has said;

"... Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." Matthew 4:4

The Lord Jesus be with you all.

In the year 1661 AC came the flood.

290 years later, in the year 1951 AC , came Abram, who was to become Abraham and the father of many nations, tribes and people. Some who would be near and dear to God and as well as those who would spend their generations persecuting, chasing, hounding and killing those same favored people of God.

And then around 4,000 AC came the Christ, Jesus, the Messiah.

2 Peter 2:1-15

1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)
9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;
13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;
14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:
15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;

Have you ever asked yourself why it is so hard for a Born Again believer and a heathen to hold a conversation? Have you ever wondered why it is that the Born Again believer and the heathen agree on so very little?

It's because the Born Again believers eyes are open. When the Born Again believer reads Scripture, he says Amen, for what he has read, he knows is fact, for;

2 Peter 1:20-21

20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

Yet, to the heathen, no matter what you say or read to him, it is only your interpretation. Yet, we who are Saved, know that it is the heathen, like the heathen in the oval office, that interpret Scripture to fit their needs and justify their sin. Strive towards making yourself into the image of Christ, not trying to make the Lord into the image that you would have Him be. For He created you for His pleasure.

The Lord Jesus be with you all.

How do you believe character development can be taught in the schools?

How do you believe character development can be taught in the schools?

Yesterday, I received an email asking me just that question. "How do you believe character development can be taught in the schools? "

Since this question gave me such pause for thought, I thought perhaps it might have the same effect on you. So, what you see below is exactly what I sent back in answer to the question "How do you believe character development can be taught in the schools? ".

To teach character development in the schools, it must first be decided, as in the case of values, whose character is to be taught.

One of the major problems in teaching values is deciding whose values are to be taught and it is much the same with character. Who is going to be the model for character teaching. To simply say, "let us teach character" is not enough, for character is not like math, where two and two are always four, character is subjective and therefore most be modeled after someone or some set of ideals and or values.

Therefore, let me start by saying that the choice of "character" to be taught is every bit as important, if not more so, than the actually method of teaching character traits. While in different parts of the world, different role models might be chosen or suggested. However, here in the United States, where 85 plus percent of the people of the country proclaim themselves to be one of three religions, Christian, Jew or Muslim, the choice of role character is clear, simple and acceptable to and by that 85 percent, and therefore a majority of the people whose children would be taught. And that choice would have to be the one God, the God of the old Testament, since that is the one thing that all three of these religions have in common and are in total agreement on. All three believe in and rely upon the God of the Old Testament.

Since the character of the Old Testament God is best explained within the Old Testament, then the text book for teaching character should be the Old Testament Bible, with it's absolute rights and wrongs and it's strong and unquestionable moral underpinning.

Additional study of character and teachings of the traits both desirable and undesirable would easily be found within the annals of American history. Traits of honesty, duty, honor, and giving of oneself could easily be taught using the nation's first president. George Washington is an example of traits desirable in both individuals we deal with on a daily basis and those who lead our nation and send our young men and women off to war.

Traits less desirable could easily be demonstrated by studying the last two presidents, George Herbert Walker Bush and William Jefferson Blithe Clinton, the former a president fired after his first term for amongst other things, lying in office and abusing his executive powers. And the latter a president who was impeached and will in all probability stand trial, after leaving office, for such things as treason and the wrongful deaths of 87 men, woman and children who died at Mt. Carmel, outside of Waco, Texas in 1993.

So, how is character to be taught to today's students? First, by teaching the Ten Commandments and the dictates of God by studying and teaching the Old testament. Not as work of mythology, which it is not, but as the word of God, which it is. And then by teaching the history of this nation as it happened, focusing on the character of those who fought, bled and died to secure our freedom in 1776 as contrasted against those of weaker and more corrupt character wh, more recently, have sought to use their powers for personal gain and to protect themselves from the prosecution.

Thank you, and may you always choose to teach what is right, not what is politically expedient.

Cursed be Canaan and Put...

Genesis 9:20-27

20 And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:
21 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.
22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.
After the flood, Noah, it seems had had enough of ship building and decided to be a farmer, a grower of grapes and a maker of wine. Well, one night, after having sampled a bit of his wine, Noah fell into a drunken slumber, it must have been rather warm, for Noah had shed his clothing, his robe, and was sleeping within his tent naked. Ham, Noah's youngest son, came into his fathers tent and saw his dad lying there asleep and nude. This shows Ham's disrespect for his fathers privacy and disobedience to his dad as well. Both things that God frowns upon.

23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness.
When Ham's older brothers, Shem and Japheth realized what their younger brother had done, they took a robe, draped it over their shoulders, backed into Noah's tent and covered their dad without starring at his naked body. This showed respect for Noah and protected his privacy.

24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.
How did Noah know what had happened? I don't know, probably, God told him.

25 And Noah said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.
Canaan? Who is this Canaan?

26 And Noah said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
There's Canaan again, who is this Cananan?

27 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
And again Canaan is cursed. Ham, is the son who disrespected Noah's privacy, but it is Canaan who is getting cursed.

Noah wasn't just cursing his son Ham, he was cursing Ham's entire line, his family forever, his decedents throughout history.

Genesis 10:6

6 And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.

There it is, the sons of Ham, .....Phut, that's Put and Canaan. Now I realize there are two other sons as well, but today we are looking only at two, for those two are of importance today. If you have a Bible with maps in it, look at those maps and see where the people of Put and Canaan are/were. Noah had cursed Ham's decedents to being the servants, slaves, folks in bondage for all time to the decedents of his other two sons. Now bear in mind, that after the flood, the only people left were the families of Noah, his sons and their wives, so all the people of the world trace their lineage back to those three boys.

The people of Canaan were and are the wanderers without a nation of the deserts of the middle east, the group now under the direction of the PLO, who now call themselves the people of Palestine. The decedents of Put, are the people of Africa, the continent that has been the slave gathering area of the last 4000 years at least.

When God tells us to honor our parents, He is not just speaking idly, He is serious, God expects us to honor our parents and likewise, He is here showing us as parents, the horrors that await our children and their children if we curse our children.

How often have you heard a mom or dad curse one of their own, they get mad in the supermarket and instead of disciplining as God would have them discipline, using a switch or the back of their hand, they instead curse their child by, judging from the tone of their voice, by ordering God to damn that child.

Better to spank the kid then damn him or her. Before you condemn your kid, think about the life the children of Put and Canaan have had, the sons of Ham, the cursed son of Noah.

Kids, honor your parents, parents, watch carefully what you ask God to do with your kids, better to ask His blessings then His curses.

The Lord be with and bless you all, thank you Charna for asking.

...but, not this time.

...but, not this time.

Usually the daily thought, while entitled "daily Christian thought" is for everyone, Christian and non Christian alike. The Lord has told us that the one thing we must do is to preach the Gospel to every creature, that we are to get His word out to as many as possible.

Mark 16:15-16

15 And Jesus said unto His disciples, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. For,
16 he that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Some, like me, are called to sow, others are called to reap. The daily Christian thought is my way of getting the Gospel of Christ Jesus out to as many unsaved folks as possible, it is also to give the Born Again believer a bit of Scripture to shore up his or her day. For we are taught,

John 4:36-38

36 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.
37 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.
38 I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.

I, through the daily Christian thought, sow, it is my prayer that all who read the thought each day will find salvation in Christ, but it is the job of the Holy Spirit to convict and another to reap.

But, not today, today's thought is for a small select group, it is for those who are Born Again washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians, who have a couple of hours free during the day.

If you are both a Born Again Christian and have a couple of hours free one day a week, then, please, go here and read the body of today's Daily Christian thought.

Now Mr. Forbes, it is time to choose!

Well Steve, you ran a good campaign, had you made it to the Maine primary, my wife and I would have both voted for you in the Republican Primary. We would have left the reform party and cast our vote for you. Why you might ask, would it be because of your tax plan, your ideas for the growth of America? No, it would have been because of the Pro -Life ads you ran in the New Hampshire primary, the ads we rejoiced and praised God over when we saw them on Portland's channel 13.

Your ad, recognizing the baby in the womb as a baby in the womb worthy of and entitled to protection was better than the speeches made by Reverend Gary Bauer, better than the words of life spoken by Ambassador Alan Keyes, for you were putting your money where your mouth was, you seemed to be showing us your true nature, your heart. Now sir, it is time to make a choice.

Mr. Forbes, are you going to stay with the party of McCain, Bush, Snowe, Collins and Lott or are you going to give your name, support and resources to one of the two parties that, while in their youth, are headed by men who are Pro Life? Will you destroy all you have done in our eyes by groveling at the feet of Bush and McCain or will you join with Pat in the reform party or the entire US Taxpayers Party?

You sir and only you can make that choice, but let me point out two bits of Scripture to you that may make that choice a bit easier.

Matthew 6:22-24

22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Could Jesus have made it any clearer? Sir, you can not serve both the republican pro abortion nominee and party and God.

Luke 12:4-5

4 And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.
5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear Him, which after He hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear God.
Your choice Mr. Forbes. Will you now fear the IRS, clinton and his fbi folders, and the republican business councils or will you heed the words of the Lord thy God, Jesus who is the Christ and fear God. Will you do what is right in the sight of George Bush senior or will you do what is right in the sight of Jesus?

Matthew 5:14-16

14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Now, by your actions and your decision, we will see if you are a beacon of hope for the baby in the womb, the most dangerous place in America to be, or if you are just one more politics as ususal opportunist.

May the Lord thy God be with thee, may He help you to understand the pain and suffering that has been foisted upon the baby in the womb by the last six presidents and the congress over the last 27 years. I pray that you won't turn out to be like them. It is better to loose with honor than win over the bodies of and with the blood of the baby in the womb on your hands. May you submit to and serve Jesus, may you turn your back on those that have made the womb the most dangerous place on earth.
Amen.

God help America.

Very shortly, it seems, MR. Forbes, Rev. Bauer and Amb. Keyes will have a choice to make. Will they stand up for what is right or will they follow the party line and support Gov. Bus or Sen, McCain. For once again the press is jockeying for the position of being able to anoint our next president. This time instead of putting all of the eggs in the basket of the democrats, they have settled on two who share the common goal of undermining the constitution, the people and the continuance of abortion in any and all instances for any reason and paid for with tax payer dollars.

I would ask you to pray that Mr. Forbes, Rev. Bauer and Amb. Keys would do what is right for the baby in the womb and the nation instead of what is best for the party.

Matthew 19:23-30
23 Then said Jesus unto His disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

25 When His disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?
26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. Salvation by man is impossible, but, through God's shedding of His blood, as His Son on the cross, that salvation becomes possible for just about all.

27 Then answered Peter and said unto Jesus, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?

28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.
30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.

Through the blood of Jesus, just about anyone can be Saved, there are very few indeed who can not, even at the moment of death, find salvation, by accepting Jesus as Lord and Saviour, but to think you can wait till the last minute and then just tell the Lord that you believe in Him, will, in my estimation, will not get you into heaven.

Your acceptance of the Lord and repentance of your sins, must be real.

Don't wait, don't procrastinate, find a quit spot and invite the Lord into your heart. Accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour and join His family of Saved, washed in the blood of the Lamb, Born Again Christians.

The Lord be with you all, and pray for America, pray that Jesus will rescue us from the evil that has captured it and that He will raise up a leader for us that will restore this nation to one that fears God and eschews evil. Amen.

As I fear God, clinton fears satan.

When the word fear is used in the Bible, it is not used as we use it today, but instead means, love, respect, devotion, dedication, trust and dependence. I fear God the creator, His Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit. While on the other hand, clinton fears his god, satan, as do those who serve satan as sacrificers of the babies in the womb.

Keep your eye on this new guy in Austria, for if clinton fears him, as he has claimed to, it can't be because he expects this guy to launch an out and out assault against the USA, it has to be on a personal level.

John 3:16-36
16 For God so loved the world, that God gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in His Son should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. Jesus neither judges you nor condemns you, you judge yourself. In that judging, you judge yourself as either worthy of an eternity in heaven or an eternity of condemnation in hell. When you walk across a bridge, you can walk across it or you can jump off of it, the decision is yours, this judgement of yourself is much the same, you can walk across the bridge created by the Lord into heaven or you can jump off the bridge and condemn yourself to hell.

19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. Even today, men would rather turn their backs on the Lord and slander His name and twist His words just to continue and justify their sins in their and the world's eyes.

20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. Those who do evil, abortionist, homosexuals, child molesters, liars, cheaters, boasters and the deceitful just to name a few, hate Jesus and refuse to come to Him, they will waffle, but they will never accept Him and be Born Again, for to accept the Lord means they will be convicted of their sins and have to change their ways.

21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. But for those few who do turn from sin and accept Jesus as Lord, Saviour, Creator and God, they will have their sins forgiven, be washed in His blood and have their lives changed forever. Thereafter having their deeds be those that find favor in the sight of the Lord.

Matthew 6:24-34

24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Amen.

Why fathers must pray for their kids and others.

As a dad, you have certain responsibilities to your children. In addition to giving them food, shelter and clothing, you must also pray for them. You must pray for God's help in raising your sons to be honorable and your daughters to remain chaste. But there is more to it than just that, you must also pray for their protection and for that one whom God has chosen to be the wives of your sons and the boys He has chosen to marry your daughters.

How do you ask for God's protection of your children, you go to His promise and ask for that promise for your sons and daughters.

Genesis 12:1-3
1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Who is God talking about? Up until the time that Jesus arose from the grave, He was talking about the Jews, but from that time forward, it is those who are Born Again Christians. Ask the Lord to protect your kids, not only with angels with flaming swords, but by blessing those that bless your kids and cursing those that curse them. Don't be afraid to ask God to deal with those who would do harm to your children.

Now, why pray for other people's kids? Look, God has chosen a boy for your daughter and a girl for your son, all they need to do is wait till they bump into one another. But what if the boy He has chosen for your daughter, has parents who are unsaved? Who will pray for that boy? His pagan parents? Who are they going to pray to? No, you as the adopted son of God need to pray for that boy. You need to pray for him as if he were your son in law already. Why? Think of how horrible it would be for you to raise your daughter to be a solid Christian wife and then have her yoked to a pagan.

2 Corinthians 6:14-16
14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Do you want you grandchildren being raised by a man who would take them to Disney world, buy them Goose bumps books and dress them in Levis? If that were to happen, you would then be praying for God's intervention in an already corrupt person, would it not be easier to pray now?

When should you start praying for your kids and the ones God has selected to marry them? How about the day you get married and before your wife is even pregnant. Redouble those prayers as soon as she is pregnant, redouble again when your baby is born and triple them the second they become teens.

The Lord Jesus be with you all, may God bless and protect you and yours, may He protect you and yours with angels with flaming swords against the evil one, his minions and his ilk and those who serve him knowingly and unknowingly. May He bless those who bless you and yours and may He curse those who curse you and yours and may He deal strongly and decisively with any and all that attempt to bring any harm to you, yours and those whom He has chosen for your sons to wife and your daughters to submit to. Amen

The Lord Jesus, the Messiah be with you.

Oh Lord God how I thank you for giving me the time to accept and thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Amen

Is it easier to be a father today?

When we look around and see the horrors of television, magazines, computer games, radio, rock music and the public schools system that puts serious emphasis on the teachings of "safe" sex, while, for the most part, ignoring the teaching of the Constitution of these United States, it would be hard not to think that parents , especially fathers have an almost impossible job to do, if what they are trying to do is raise their sons to be honest and their daughters to be chaste.

Add to that, the peer pressure of drugs, alcohol and tobacco. Laws that protect homosexuality, abortionist and pornographers, yet demonize the Lord Jesus the Messiah and his preachers. A legal system that puts political correctness ahead of honesty and integrity, a congress that puts party ahead of national interest and a senate that is so overwhelmed with guilt that they refused to remove the most corrupt man in America from office for fear of what he would have published in a pornographic magazine about them.

Today, dads trying to raise their children by following the words of God are prosecuted for child abuse, the new catch all phrase for spankings. Ridiculed as fundamentalist wackos both on television, in the halls of congress and the majority of left wing revisionist churches.

So, is it more difficult to be a dad today then it was two or four thousand years ago?

YES! Absolutely Yes!

Do you doubt that? Would your teenage strapping and strong son allow you to tie him down, put a knife through his heart and burn his remains? Would he have carried the wood for you? Abrahams son Isaac did just that. Would your daughter agree that she should be sacrificed because you had made an oath to God? Jephthah's daughter did.

So, what is a dad to do? What does a dad who wants his kids to grow up right and abide by the word of the Lord do?

Go to his Father, that's what.

Why was it easier back then? Well for a number of reasons, but the biggest reason is that men not only loved, feared, respected and trusted in God, they went to Him in prayer, trusting that He would always do what was both right and best for them and theirs.

When Issac questioned Abraham, Abraham said:

Genesis 22:7-13
7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?
8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.
9 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.

10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.

11 And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.
12 And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.
13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.

What about Jephthah's daughter?

Judges 11:30-37
30 And Jephthah vowed a vow unto the LORD, and said, If thou shalt without fail deliver the children of Ammon into mine hands,
31 Then it shall be, that whatsoever cometh forth of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the children of Ammon, shall surely be the LORD's, and I will offer it up for a burnt offering.

32 So Jephthah passed over unto the children of Ammon to fight against them; and the LORD delivered them into his hands.
33 And he smote them from Aroer, even till thou come to Minnith, even twenty cities, and unto the plain of the vineyards, with a very great slaughter. Thus the children of Ammon were subdued before the children of Israel.

34 And Jephthah came to Mizpeh unto his house, and, behold, his daughter came out to meet him with timbrels and with dances: and she was his only child; beside her he had neither son nor daughter.

35 And it came to pass, when he saw her, that he rent his clothes, and said, Alas, my daughter! thou hast brought me very low, and thou art one of them that trouble me: for I have opened my mouth unto the LORD, and I cannot go back.

36 And she said unto him, My father, if thou hast opened thy mouth unto the LORD, do to me according to that which hath proceeded out of thy mouth; forasmuch as the LORD hath taken vengeance for thee of thine enemies, even of the children of Ammon.
37 And she said unto her father, Let this thing be done for me:...

Notice both Abraham's and Jephthah's children accepted what their fathers had said, because it involved a conversation that they had had with God. Do you think they would have accepted their apparent fate so easily if they were not absolutely sure that their dad's really spoke to God? How do you think they became convinced? Could it be because they were so used to seeing their dads turning to God in prayer that they thought of God, not as some strange thing, but as God the Creator, God the Father, God the GrandFather.

God intervened and Issac lived, God intervened and Mizpeh lived, these children knew that God would only do what He knew was best for them and mankind, they had faith in both God and their earthly dads to do what was both right and best for them.

Can you raise your children today to be Issac's and Mizpeh's?

YES! Absolutely Yes!

How? Do as Abraham and Jephathah did, Pray, pray with your families, pray with them and for them. Let them see you on your knees asking God for His help and guidance, let them see your devotion and faith to God. Let them learn through your teachings and examples to put their trust and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and like Isaac and Mizpeh, your children too will be protected from the evils of this world. It is never to late to start, so why procrastinate, if your kids are teens, you may get some snide remarks to start, but give God a chance, and you can't give Him a chance to help you with your kids, if you don't start by asking Him for His help.

The Lord JESUS, who is the Christ be with you all, amen

Well Senator McCain, Governor Bush and Mr. Forbes?

With politics in the wind and primary elections just around the corner, a couple of verses in the Gospel of Mark keep coming to mind. Verses I would like to ask some politicians about, politicians like Bush, Forbes and McCain.

Mark 8:36-37
36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

I need not ask Ambassador Keyes, and Mr. Bauyer for I don't think they would even consider selling their soul to achieve political office.

And after listening to Gore and Bradley fighting about who is more pro abortion, who, if elected, would kill more babies in the womb, the thought of their soul is to frightening to ask them. For only verse 37, Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?, might apply to them.

Help with to morrows thought if you would, how would you answer this question. "Is it harder to be a God fearing father today then it was 4,000 years ago? Is it harder to raise your sons and daughters to be honorable and chaste today then it was 4,000 years ago?"

Thank you and may the Lord help the candidates to be truthful, may He help us to vote, not for the lesser of the two evils, but for the man who will serve God first and us second. The Lord be with you all.

The Lord Jesus, the Messiah be with you.

...unless, you want to be president...

Our Constitution tells us that for a man to be president, he must be 35 and a citizen of these United States for at least fifteen years, it doesn't tell us that now, anyone wishing to hold the office of president must be a liar, but that seems to be a solid requirement if your to run as a Democrat or a Republican and now these two illustrious parties have added one more qualification to be even a front runner in the primaries, you must be a thief.

God tells us in Exodus twenty, within the very Ten Commandments, "Thou shalt not steal." Exodus 20:15 (KJV)

Yet, tell me, when you have hired a man to do a job, and he is not doing that job, yet continues to draw his paycheck, is he not stealing? Has George W. Bush, Al Gore or John McCain stopped drawing the paychecks for the duties they are to perform as Vice President, Governor of Texas or United States Senator? IS Gore performing the day to day functions for which we the people have hired him and are paying him? My friends in Texas, when you hired Bush, did you write into his job description, take all the time you want off, travel all over the country, and continue to draw your pay check and bennies while doing it? Where in the Constitution does it say that Senators can take the money and go play king to be?

No, Al Gore is not only a pathological liar, he is a thief as is George Bush and John McCain. And those three are the front runners. Unless the D's and the R's suddenly wake up, this coming November, we the people will have a choice, a choice between two lying thieves and Pat Buchanan for president. For it certainly appears that either thief McCain or thief Bush will head the Republican ticket and pathological lying thief Al Gore the Democratic ticket.

For God said: "Thou shalt not steal.",

not,

"thou shall not steal unless it furthers your corrupt agenda."

Recently we have seen more and more violence against gun owners inflicted on them by the various police departments in the country. Men who are legally carrying are subjected to arrest and their guns confiscated, law abiding citizens whose homes have been broken into or have had to invite the police in for various reasons have found themselves on the receiving end as soon as the police saw their guns.

Here in Maine not to long ago, the chief of police in Portland said regarding a man who had been arrested for legally carrying a gun and had his gun illegally confiscated by the chief's men, after the courts had thrown the case out and the chief was made aware of the fact that he was trampling on the mans Constitutional Rights, Chief Michael Chitwood said "I don't care about his Constitutional Rights!"

.

Two bits of Scripture to look at:

John 18:10
10 Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus.

Luke 22:36-38
36 Then said Jesus unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
37 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in Me, "And He was reckoned among the transgressors"Isiah 53:12: for the things concerning Me have an end.
38 And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And Jesus said unto them, It is enough.

It is getting dangerous to carry a weapon, don't carry simply to carry, you wouldn't lug around a chain saw unless you were going out to cut down a tree or two, you don't carry a hammer unless your planning on banging nails, you only carry a tool when you are in need of that tool and plan on and are prepared to use it. A gun is just one more tool, it is not an ornament, it isn't an article of clothing, it is a tool a tool to defend yourself and yours with, if you are not prepared to use it, leave it at home, or better yet give it to someone who is not afraid to use it!

In John 18:10 we see that Peter was armed, but we also see that Peter was prepared to use his weapon.

In Luke 22:36-38, notice the Lord inviting those who were not armed to get armed, but He also didn't require it, He instead went with those who were armed and were prepared to use those arms. Was the other armed disciple James, prepared to use his weapon? I think so, otherwise, why was Herod so happy to have him be the first disciple killed.Acts 12:2

"... worship me, I am your saviour..."

so sayeth clinton

I guess a lot of you watched the state of the union speech last week, once again you had the opportunity to watch and listen to the greatest liar of all times, you had the opportunity to see a man who was impeached and should have been both removed from office and tried for treason. Had the senate had the courage of a slug, clinton would now be in prison and the US military would be looking for a few good men to make up a firing squad, for the penalty for treason is death. But instead, you were subjected to not only seeing and hearing a man whose legacy is really:

..click here for the clinton legacy.

You were also tormented by susan collins, one of the two republican US Senators from Maine who refused to remove this pathological lying treasonous murder from office. Instead of collins rebuking clinton, she seemed to reenforce clinton's underlying statement of "... worship me, I am your saviour...". Are there no Peters left?

Luke 22:44-54
44 And being in an agony Jesus prayed more earnestly: and His sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground. Have you ever prayed this hard?
45 And when the Lord rose up from prayer, and was come to His disciples, He found them sleeping for sorrow,

46 And Jesus said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.
47 And while He yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss Him.
48 But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?

49 When they which were about Jesus saw what would follow, they said unto Him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword? Peter didn't wait for an answer,
50 And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear.

51 And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far?. And He touched his ear, and healed him.

52 Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to Him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?
53 When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against Me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.

54 Then took they Him, and led Him, and brought Him into the high priest's house. And Peter followed afar off. (KJV)

When ever I read these verses, I can't help but wonder why the servant of the chief priest, not really a servant as we think of a servant, but more than likely the commander of the guard of the high priest, why when after Peter cut off his ear and Jesus touched and healed it, this servant of the high priest just didn't fall to his knees and beg the Lord for forgiveness.

What kind of a sign did this guy need?
What kind of a sign do you need?
Would you take your sword to defend the Lord against overwhelming odds as Peter did? Or would you have stood on the sidelines and shaken your head and said
"...He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the chosen of God." Luke 23:35.

The Lord Jesus be with you all and may He help today's dads do what is right in His sight, amen.

NO,

let me ask you something.

Let me ask you a question: Let's say that while driving home tonight, a tractor trailer truck or some other huge truck looses a tire or some other form of control for just a moment, but during that moment, that huge truck swerved just five feet and in doing so crushed your side of the car, killing you instantly.

A micro second later, you find yourself standing before God and God looks at you and says: "Tell me, why I should let you into my heaven?" What would you say?

Get outa here you you Christ.

So, we have drugs, murder, rape and mayhem in the schools. Our schools tell our children that it is acceptable to be a homosexual but, not a Born Again Christian, We have pokemon, stephen king and goose bumps occupying places of honor in our public school system but to the Creator we say, "Get outa here you you Christ".

We have homosexual rape, rampart drug use, murder and mayhem going on in our prisons, we have wardens determined to execute prisoners by using the slow torture of diet deprivatation in our prisons. Prisons on both the state and federal level allow cable televison with pornography, but to the Creator they say, "Get outa here you you Christ".

Study after study has shown that if you want to reduce the amount of violence in society, you introduce biblical Christianity, not the pillsbury dough boy God, but God the Creator, the Christ. Yet, rather than reduce violence by bringing the Lord in, by encouraging teachers to pray for their classes, by hiring and encouraging Christians to work in the prisons, instead our society says "Get outa here you you Christ".

Unfortunately this is not the first time in history that the Christ has been firmly and impolitely told to leave, nor will it be the last. But today, let us look at one time in the past when anyone living in one of the so called industrial nations of the world can easily understand, because the guy leading the pack could have very easily been clinton, tony blair or any other of the worlds major "leaders". The troops backing this satan worshiper of pig dung could have very easily been NATO or the UN. The chief cop easily could have been janet reno. For like today, these folks preferred pig dung to the Lord and Creator of the earth and the heavens, the Messiah Jesus. Before we continue, let me explain why I refuse to use capital letters to begin names like clinton, blair, snowe, collins, frank and reno. I do not and will not capitalize pig dung and or it's equivalent! Now let us continue.

Two thousand years ago God came to earth in the form of man, this man went by the name of Jesus. On one of the days the Lord walked with man He was resting in a small boat as this happened.

Matthew 8:24-9:1

24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but Jesus was asleep.
25 And the Lord's disciples came to Him, and awoke Him, saying, "Lord, save us: we perish".
26 And the Lord Jesus saith unto them, "Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?" Then He arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.
27 But the men marvelled, saying, "What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?"

28 And when Jesus was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met Him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way.
29 And, behold, they cried out, saying, "What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?"
30 And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding.
31 So the devils besought Him, saying, "If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine."
32 And Jesus said unto them, "Go!". And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.
33 And they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the city, and told every thing, and what was befallen to the possessed of the devils.
34 And, behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus: and when they saw Him, they besought Him that He would depart out of their coasts. They said: "Get outa here you you Christ". Did the Lord thy God argue with them? Did He say to them, "Get off my planet you poor excuse for a creation." And send them off into deepest space? No, what Jesus, the Creator of all things did was leave. For the Lord goes only where He is invited.

CHAPTER 9

1 And Jesus entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into His own city.

No, this isn't the first time the Lord, the Creator of all things has heard, "Get outa here you you Christ", it wasn't the first and it won't be the last, for men today, like those who lived in that city, are more enamored by pig dung then they are salvation. Don't be like them, don't follow the pig dung worshipers to hell, read John 3 and follow the Lord Jesus, the Messiah, the Creator to heaven for all eternity.

May He who created you open your eyes, remove the hardness from your hearts and the wax from your ears, may you this very day stop worshiping mammon and start worshiping Jesus. I am personally inviting you to meet with and serve my Lord Jesus and find salvation through Him. Just kneel down and quietly ask Him to forgive you and to help you understand what it is that you are to do and then read the third chapter of the gospel of John.

The Lord be with you all, amen.

No! The Christ never advocated socialism!

Many a government public servant would have us believe that they take a hunk of what you earn and give it to those who choose to sit on their duffs and let others do the work, to comply with the wishes and word of God. I don't think so.

II Thessalonians 3:6-18
6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.
7 For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you;
8 Neither did we eat any man's bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you: Paul literally made tents so as to not have to use the money donated to his church efforts for other than the work of the Lord and charity.

9 Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.
10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. In verse six we see that this is a command of the Lord Jesus, here in verse 10 we see Paul saying "that if any would not work, neither should he eat."

11 For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.
12 Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.Work and eat their won bread. No food stamps, no welfare, work and eat their own bread.

13 But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.
14 And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed.
15 Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.

16-18 Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all. The salutation of Paul with mine own hand, which is the token in every epistle: so I write. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

No, Jesus never rewarded slovenly behavior and neither should we, it is only satan that rewards for having illegitimate children, slovenly behavior, laziness, and funding to start wars against other nations and the baby in the womb worldwide. What would Jesus Do? He would pay His taxes, but no, He would not tell the tax collector or the government worker that he, that worker, was doing the work of the Lord.

The Lord be with you all, as you conti plate the various candidates, try to keep in mind that you are the Lord's not the governments. It is not clinton, bush or carter that went up on the cross for you, it was the Lord Jesus who is the Messiah. Serve Him, vote for those who serve Him, not only in voice, but in action. A man who names public property after an abortionist is not Pro- Life.

God be with you all.

Daily thought Tuesday January 25th, 2000

You're not His friend, you're his bond servant!

Oh how often we sing the song, "What a friend I have in Jesus". But, can we call ourselves the friend of the Lord? Can we say, "Jesus is my friend"? Do we have any right to consider ourselves His friends?

Afraid not my friends, Jesus is not your friend, if you are really lucky, you are His bond servant, His slave. Oh, yes, He tells us that when we are born again, we become His brothers, His sisters, His adopted sons and daughters and that is the truth. He can call us His friend, His brother, His sister, but we have no such standing, we can only consider ourselves His slaves, His bond servants.

But pastor you say, "the pastor down the street, in that big church with the steeples and the thousand people with new cars, the pastor with the fancy robes, he has told us that we should all look forward to the day when the Lord will say, ‘Well done thou good and faithful friend'".

Guess what, that isn't what the verse says, the verse reads:

Matthew 25:21-23

21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.
23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Notice it says " Well done, thou good and faithful servant" Servant not friend. But, you say, oh pastor you're nit picking. Am I? How would you like it if your son or daughter cam home from school and referred to you by your first name, how about treating you like just another friend?

Jesus had two half brothers who became pillars of the early church, James and Jude. How did James and Jude introduce themselves? Did they say, "Hi, my name is James, I am the half brother of the Lord Jesus Christ"? Did Jude jump up and say, "I am the brother of Jesus"?

No, this is how they introduced themselves:

James 1:1
1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.

Jude 1:1
1 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:

No my friend, you're not here on earth to be the friend of the Creator, you're here to serve Him, and the question today is, what did you do yesterday to serve Him? Did you witness to even one person? Did you tell even one person that Jesus went up on the cross for them? Did you at least thank Him for your family, shelter and food?

Will you try to serve Him a bit better today? He doesn't ask you too much you know, simply as in:

Mark 16:15-16

15 And Jesus said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. You don't have to go to the ends of the earth, how about the guy you play golf with? The lady you shop with, your kids.

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. Be a shame for the guy you golf with or the lady you shop with or one of your kids to spend eternity in hell, because you chose not to serve God today.

The Lord Jesus be with you all, don't just preach the Word, live it. Plan on voting, not for the lesser of the two evils, but for a candidate whom you would leave your wife or kids with alone and over night. It doesn't make a bit of difference what the pundits say, why should you even listen to petey jennings, his minions and his ilk in what they, the legends in their own minds, consider the main stream media, say. It is not them you serve, vote for one man that best serves God.

For, as Paul said:

2 Corinthians 6:14-18

14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Look at what the Word of God says, look at the promise in verses 17 and 18. Do you think that promise from God is achieved by voting for the lesser of the two evils because petey jennings and rush limbaugh told you that Alan Keyes, Gary Bauer or Pat Buchanan can't win?

Read verses 14-17 again, serve God not ABC. Serve Him as His servant, serve Him as if your very salvation depends on it. It does!

Dear Lord in heaven,

Not long ago, Kathy and Bill were on their knees asking God why one of their friends had been killed at school, as they prayed, they looked up to heaven and asked "Oh Lord in heaven, why didn't you help, why didn't You stop the slaughter that took our friend and dozens of other kids in the last few years? Lord don't You care about the violence in the schools? Can't you do something to protect us while we're in school? Don't You love us anymore?"

As they finished, they said Amen and got up to leave, suddenly they heard a very small whisper, they had to strain their ears to hear it, for God doesn't yell, He doesn't scream, He whispers in a still small voice.

And God very softly, in a tired and soft voice whispered,

..click here to see what God said.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the rescue from evil for the USA.

Oh Lord God how I thank you for giving me the time to accept and thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Amen

And may the God of gods, Yahweh/Yeshua Bless you and yours in the name of His son, our Messiah Yahshauh
amen

below is linked part of above thought.

"Oh Billy and Kathy how I do love you, but I'm not allowed in school."








Jesus went on to remind Bill and Kathy that He, only goes were He is invited, He is never pushy and never goes where He is unwanted, whether that be a school, hospital or heart.

Matthew 7:7-8
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Revelation 3:20
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Don't go where Jesus has been banned, unless your public school system embraces the Lord Jesus Christ, don't send your kids and use the power of your vote to stop the funding for those schools.

Don't use doctors that do abortions nor hospitals that do abortions, for how can you think that Jesus would guide the hands of one who serves baal? Do you for even a moment think that the Lord allows the Holy Spirit to be in a place that murders, tortures, cuts apart and sells for lucre the babies HE has placed in the womb?

Don't use ATT&T, MCI and Sprint, avoid Disney, ABC and Time Warner like the plague that they are. If you don't have the courage to make change, don't be upset, just use your purchasing power to make those changes, avoid the likes of Gateway computers and Levi's, Ford and the company in Vermont that sells politically correct ice cream.

Keep in mind that Jesus also said this:

Matthew 6:24
24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

The Lord Jesus be with you, let Him help you choose a doctor, phone carrier and ice cream. Go by His words and spend your money and use your vote wisely? Do you think Jesus would have driven a Ford, used a Gateway computer or let Doctor Luke write in the New Testament had he done abortions? Do you suppose that Jesus would cast His vote for the lesser of the two evils? Maybe Gary Bauer can't win, maybe Alan Keyes can't win, but, by your casting a vote for them, even if they don't win, maybe next time the parties will realize the importance of having one who supports and is dedicated to the Word of God on the ballot. Jesus would not vote for George Bush simply because he is less pro abortion than Algore. One day, one day soon, you will stand, actually kneel, before the Lord Jesus and explain your actions.

The Lord Jesus be with you all, and may He be with SSG Ingram, Nicole and their family. And may HE bless Bert Hagar for placing this seed within me. Amen.

You dare to justify abortionist by comparing them to Paul?

Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ ...

Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ for the faith of God's elect and the knowledge of the truth that leads to godliness-- a faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time, and at his appointed season He brought His word to light through the preaching entrusted to me by the command of God our Savior,

That is the beginning three verses of the book of Titus. Paul, a servant of God, an apostles of Jesus Christ, what a way to introduce a man. Paul was before his conversion a jew named Saul, but not just any jew, a jew of the jews, a Pharisee. When Paul was still Saul, he hunted down and persecuted Christians of the early church, he held the coat of those who stoned Stephen and was on his way to Damascus to further persecute the followers of the Lord when Jesus Himself came to Saul, renamed him Paul, blinded him, and led him into the desert of Arabia for three years of intense teachings before turning him loose as an Apostle and teacher of the word of Jesus the Messiah.

And because of Paul's past, some want to compare abortionist to him, saying "Well, if God could find good in Paul and use him HE can save abortionist and use them to further His word as well."

The problems with that thinking are many, but let is suffice to say that Yes, if God choose to use and abortionist to further His goals HE could, for all things are possible with and for God. But, why would He? Why would God use and abortionist? If God wanted to use abortionist, He could simply turn the heart of he whom they worship, satan. You see the difference between Paul and an abortionist is this. Paul, as a jew of the jew's a Pharisee, thought he was doing God's work. Paul, from the age of 4 or so, had studied under the best jewish teachers of the time, Paul was not an abortionist, Paul was a Pharisee.

Right click here, and open in a new screen sa as to be able to come back easily. My thanks and appreciation to the fine folks at New American for their excellent work.

No my friends, Paul was nothing like todays abortionist and while Paul will greet you as you walk through the gates of heaven as a Born Again washed in the Blood of the Lamb believer, if you choose to ignore or turn your back on Christ Jesus, then the abortionist will greet you as you enter the devastation, torment and torture of an eternity in hell with him, his master and his and your god, satan! Your choice, but, you must make it before you take your last breathe and you must be serious.

If your a doctor planning on doing an abortion or your a woman planning on having an abortion, you better remember this, when someone tells you I'm wrong, it is your salvation that they and you just put on the line, for if I'm right, you mr. doctor have just consigned your soul to everlasting hell! And you little missy, if you kill your baby and die on that table or before you have an opportunity to seriously and completely get on your knees and fulfill every thing necessary to get forgiven, you best really like that abortionist and he whom he serves for your going to spend eternity in hell with them both!

You don't want the baby, contact us, we will take care of him we will find a loving home for him, there are tons of folks begging for a baby boy or girl, twins and quadruplets.

Click here to let us help arrange for a loving family for your baby instead of killing him or her. Or to email questions to the Church of the American.Christian.Patriot

May the Lord Jesus deal with those who do and embrace abortion as they who do abortions do to the babies whom they kill, destroy, torture, dissect and sell. And may He show no mercy on their souls! Amen.

Oh Father in heaven in 1776 it was red blooded patriot Americans that freed this nation, who will Thou send to free us this time, for Father we have lost our courage, we have lost our morals, we have lost our faith in Thee Holy One and replaced You with faith in the almighty dollar and the filth of politics. Amen

So, how do you spit in HTML?

Every time I turn on the televison or listen to the radio it seems that I am either revolted by his picture or have my stomach turned by his voice, for the media can not seem to get enough of the corrupt anti Christ wanna be in the oval office, william jefferson blithe clinton, the man incapable of telling the truth even when it comes to his own name.

Not long ago, while discussing current world events, the topic of terrorism in the USA came up. Needless to say this turned to the New Years eve fiascos and how the feds and petey jennings and his gang of legends in their own minds, in what they keep telling us is the main stream media, used the power of their offices, badges and transmitting towers to try to convince us that we were under full scale attack by every terrorist in the world and that we would be lucky if we woke up on January 1st, 2000. And if we did wake up at all, we would probably hear about massive attacks around the country resulting in much of the country having been destroyed by these media and government invented terrorist.

Well, now we know that the only acts of terrorism within the borders of the USA were done by the same nice folks that brought you Ruby Ridge, Waco and the Oklahoma city massacres.

But, what if there really had been a terrorist attack on a major US city, Washington let's say, and these terrorist were able to turn the entire city into a flaming inferno? So that when we awoke on the morning of January 1st, 2000 what we say were pictures of Washington smouldering and totally destroyed, completely taking out the congress, senate, supreme court, administration, the department of oxymoron, and everything else that says socialist communist regime of the clinton's.

What would we as the survivors do? Would we turn to the side and spit in disgust at the mere mention of the name of the terrorist groups responsible? Or would we be naming streets and schools after them?

Solomon talked about the clinton administration way back 3,000 years ago.

Ecclesiastes 1:15
15 That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered. (KJV)

Ecclesiastes 1:15
15 What is twisted cannot be straightened; what is lacking cannot be counted. (NIV)

Is not Solomon talking about the clinton regime?

So, you want to preach do you...

It never ceases to amaze me how many folks second guess the words preached here or on the pulpit. In one breath the preacher is criticized for preaching too long, I actually had a woman suggest that I should give people a ten minute break in the middle of my sermons so that they could get up stretch their legs and go to the bathroom, have a cup of coffee etc. Yet, if the preacher misses one verse of Scripture that deals with the subject of the sermon, those same folks yell and scream that the preacher doesn't know the Word of God well enough because he missed one verse on one subject.

But, why should I be amazed, this second guessing and criticism has been going on for 6000 years, it was done to Moses, Elijah and even the Lord Jesus.

Matthew 4:3-7
3 And when the tempter came to Jesus, satan said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
4 But Jesus answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
5 Then the devil took Jesus up into the holy city, and set Him on a pinnacle of the temple,
6 And satan saith unto Him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

7 Jesus said to satan, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. ((N)KJV)

So, today, how about you being the preacher, let's take a subject that it seems everyone has a view on, abortion.

A young person, just out of medical school comes to you and says: "Pastor, I am a hundred thousand dollars in debt, my car is on its way to the junk yard, I'm tired of eating at McDonald's and I'm tired of being broke. I have a chance to work in an abortion clinic for six months, I'll be doing ten abortions a day and with my commissions on the sale of body parts, I should net $1,000. Per abortion. I swear to you on my mothers head that I will tithe 10% of my gross to you each week. If I only do it for six months and I tithe faithfully, will God later forgive me?"

A young woman comes to you and tells you that she is very sick with her pregnancy, it is a high risk pregnancy, she may not live through it and as a matter of fact, she has been told that she probably won't. Then she ask this question: "Pastor if I have an abortion and die on the table, will I go to hell?"

How would you, as their pastor or as just a pastor whose church they wandered into, answer these two?

Before you answer, look at a few verses of Scripture;

Psalms 22:10
10 I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's belly.

Psalms 139:13
13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.

Isaiah 44:2
2 Thus saith the LORD that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, which will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen.

and:

Luke 1:31
31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

And keep this in mind if you will, a person's salvation is ultimately their own responsibility, but, God does hold preachers responsible for what they preach and council.

The Lord be with you and may HE bless and cure Becky, may HE guide the doctors and comfort her family. Amen.

Was Solomon thinking about Washington?

Sometimes, when I read the book of Proverbs I can't help but wonder if Solomon wasn't thinking about Washington, DC, USA and the current administration and congress. Other times I think he must have been thinking of the current crop of d and r candidates.

Proverbs 10:18
18 He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool. I read this and I think George Bush, Bill Clinton, Barney Frank and john Baldacci.

Proverbs 10:20
20 The tongue of the just is as choice silver: the heart of the wicked is little worth. While some in Congress, like Ron Paul and Helen Chenoworth work hard at getting the truth out, the majority of both house laugh and scorn them

Proverbs 13:4
4 The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat. I guess if Solomon wished to verify my thoughts, he could have written it like this; The soul of clinton has nothing: but the soul of the George Washington was made fat.

Proverbs 14:5
5 A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies. Is this a contrast between Judge Starr and clinton or what.

Proverbs 14:9
9 Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favour. Mention the cleansing blood of the Lord Jesus to the likes of Tom Allen, Olympia Snowe, Waxman and the Washington press corps and you'll be mocked but God will smile at you.

Proverbs 14:34
34 Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people. For a bit of time, Regan started to lift this nation, oh what a God fearing president could do to bring this nation back up out of the mud and mire.

Proverbs 15:8
8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.

Proverbs 15:9
9 The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness.

Proverbs 15:12
12 A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him: neither will he go unto the wise. So, clinton hates those who try to correct hem and he'll never go seek the council of those who will tell him the truth. For the truth is not in him, is it.

So, you think you have plenty of time...

I oft wonder where people get the idea they have plenty of time. Probably the best lie the king of liars has ever told is the one he whispers into ears of those who are on the verge of looking for the Lord, "What's your hurry, sure you need to accept Jesus, but what's your hurry, you have plenty of time."

Almost on a daily basis, I hear folks say, "you're right pastor, I need to invite Jesus into my heart, but I'm just not ready yet, let me finish this deal, He'll understand. And besides that I'm still young." If not those exact words, something along those lines. But the truth is, no one knows how much time they have left, read the twelfth chapter of Dr. Luke, pay particular attention to Luke 12:20 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?

Read what Jesus had to say about when He is coming back and what it will be like and then think about today.

Matthew 24:1-13
1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and His disciples came to Him for to shew Him the buildings of the temple.
2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
3 And as Jesus sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. ( How do you make sure that no man deceives you? Read your Bible, check every word I or any one else teaches, preaches or tells you against the Word of God, the Bible.)

5 For many shall come in My name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. (We have wars going on in how many countries today? Russia is rattling it's sword, so is China.)

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. (Christians in China are executed for the lucrative body part business here in the US and throughout Europe and Japan, Christians are sold into slavery, raped, beat, tortured and killed in the Sudan and throughout the Muslim nations. Here in the USA, Christians are blamed for the death of homosexuals and others, they are vilified in the main stream media and ridiculed by Disney and others in movies and on television.)

10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. (Preachers don't preach what is written, they preach what is politically correct, I've been told that in some churches the evils of cigarets are preached more often then the evils of homosexuality, abortion and idolatry. How about your church?)

12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.(Iniquity shall abound, hello, anyone take a look at Washington DC recently? Turned on the TV this month? Listened to the radio, how about to days rap music, larry flynt, a child rapist pornographer is welcomed into the White House and his very presence has members of congress quivering in their boots.)

13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Who is that "he" the Lord is referring to? Look at what the Lord says in the Book of Revelation:

Revelation 3:7-13
7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith He that is Holy, He that is True, He that hath the key of David, He that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; (JESUS!)
8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept My word, and hast not denied My name.("kept My word, and hast not denied My name." Where have we heard that before? Read John chapter three.)

9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. (What is that hour of temptation? The seven years called Tribulation!)

11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.(Behold I come what? Quickly!)

12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him My new name. (Jesus will write upon His, the name of His God, He will write upon them His name.)

13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Yes, no man knows the exact hour or even the exact day, but if you think you have plenty of time to close that one more deal, to watch that one more video, to have that one more affair, think about this, what if your wrong. Think about the farmer in Luke Twelve.

May the Lord JESUS, the Messiah be with you and help you to see His truths and through the lies of satan, his minions and his ilk.

While I'll miss this, I won't miss it.

As I read through the Book of Revelation as spoken by the Messiah and recorded by His servant John, I can't help but feel relieved. But, while feeling relived for myself and my brethren, I almost feel sorry for those who won't miss the time called Tribulation.

When the Lord comes back for His bride, the Christian church, He doesn't only snatch them, but He also takes with Him the third face of God, the Holy Spirit, leaving no restraining power here on earth, only evil. Evil as no man has ever seen on earth, evil with absolutely no restraints.

In Second Thessalonians, Paul tells us that the Lord comes back for us, and takes the Holy Spirit with Him, leaving nothing but evil behind.

II Thessalonians 1:7-2:9
7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels,
8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power;
10 When He shall come to be glorified in His saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.
11 Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of His goodness, and the work of faith with power:
12 That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

CHAPTER 2

1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto Him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? (Keep in mind, this is a letter from Paul to the Thessalonians, Paul is reminding them that when he, Paul, was with them, he had told them these things.)
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only He who now letteth will let, until He be taken out of the way. (Here Paul is telling the Thessalonians that HE, the Holy Spirit, who now restrains evil, will be taken away with the church at what Paul refers to as the gathering and we commonly refer to as the rapture.)
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming:

9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

No, while I'll miss this, for if the Lord Raptures His church while I am still alive, a micro second after the dead in Christ go, I'm outta here and so is my wife. So, yes, I'll miss this, but I really won't miss it at all. What about you? Jesus shouts today, He comes back and calls His church, his faithful, what happens to you, do you leave with my wife and I or are you left behind. Think about it, for those who are left behind, it is the battle of the fittest, for there is no restraint on evil what so ever, never before in the history of man have there been no restraints placed on satan on earth. Yet during this seven year tribulation period, there is no restraints on evil.

No restraints, means that men won't love their daughters, they will rape them! It's not like the movies, a good day on earth after rapture will make the worst night in a Stephen King novel look like a walk in the park.

Want to know how to avoid this? Read and do what is in John chapter three.

Oh Lord God how I thank you for giving me the time to accept and thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Amen

Elohim, Jehovah, AKA Messiah Yeshua!

Two thousand years ago, God Himself came to earth, He came not as the King, but as the sacrificial lamb of prophecy. He, Jehovah came as Messiah Yeshua. JESUS! While the vast majority seem to think that what happened on earth during the thirty three years God walked with men back then, happened by chance, that simply is not the case, not if prophecy is to be believed and to not believe prophecy is both stupid and anti Christ. Everything that happened happened for a reason and happened not only because God allowed it, but because God arranged it. We have no trouble understanding that as Christians when it comes to the virgin Birth nor when it comes to His violent ‘death' on the cross. But we have a hard time understanding it when we look at such things as the woman caught in the very act of adultery (John 8), why did Jesus decided that that was the one case, HE as a rabbi would hear personally?

Messiah Yeshua heard that case Himself because it was through that case that HE, God, freed women. Look at Exodus 20, read the prohibition on adultery and then consider this, Moses had two wives, Abraham had concubines, King David had his share of wives and King Solomon set a world record for the number of wives and concubines. But what about women? One woman, one lover! The only way a woman got to know another man is if her husband got rid of her or he died. Up until the time of Jesus, men were only bound to not have sexual relations with other married women, other then that, they had free reign, but not so for women. What did Jesus do? HE drew the line, HE said, to men in;

Matthew 5:28
28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

Before God came to earth, women were relegated to the back of the synagogue, women were to be seen for the most part and not heard. They were the out and out property of their fathers first, brothers and kinsmen next and then their husbands. They played no major role other than being obedient. But what happened when the Lord came?

Matthew 28:1-10 1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:
4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.
8 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.
9 And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.
10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

The Messiah, upon His resurrection spoke first to two women and HE not only spoke to them, He gave them a message, entrusting them to deliver this message to His disciples.

the Lord Jesus be with you all.

The Lady or the tramp???

Exodus 20:14
14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

Leviticus 20:10
10 And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

Proverbs 6:32
32 But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.

Serious stuff we read about adultery. God says in no uncertain terms, "Thou shalt not commit adultery." Not a request, not a suggestion, but a command. "Thou shalt not commit adultery!"

Did you ever wonder why Jesus chose the woman who was caught in the very act of adultery? Why not a homosexual, one of the shepherds that had relations with one of his sheep? But He didn't, He choose to deal with the woman caught in the act of adultery.

John 8:3-5
3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto Jesus a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
4 They say unto Him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

And how did the Lord handle this?

John 8:7
7 ... and Jesus said to them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

And none did, they all, being guilty of sin themselves, dropped their stones and left and then the Lord addressed the woman caught in the very act of committing adultery and said;

John 8:10-11
10 When Jesus had lifted up Himself, and saw none but the woman, He said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

While not forgiving her, Jesus told her that HE would not condemn her, (remember John 3?). Notice in John 8:5 above how the scribes and Pharisees reminded Him of the law of Moses? They had ignored the Law of God in Exodus 20 and chose to go with the Law of Moses, that's interesting, but Jesus, being GOD, can fulfill any and all of the Law that He chooses to.

But, why the adulteress? Why did Jesus choose to deal with adultery here and not one of the other sins punishable by death?

Let me leave you with this to think about, the women of note in the Old Testament, were women who were notable because of their obedience to their husbands or earthly fathers, Ruth was being obedient to her husband by staying with her mother in law. But what about the women of note in the New Testament? The difference is subtle, but it is there.

May the Lord Jesus be with you all,

What's really important?

Just a bit ago, my wife and I were sitting in bed, as is our custom in the morning, listening to the radio and having our morning coffee. Suddenly I had to sneeze, looking to my right, I noticed that on the night stand sat my Bible, an old Bile to be sure and one well worn with loose and torn pages. But rather than put my coffee cup on it, I reached down to set the cup on the floor, preferring to soil the new carpet then my old Bible. Why is that do you think?

Having but one car in our family, I'm about to drive my wife to work in Portland. The reason is that I'll be attending a funeral in Standish later this afternoon for a young girl who died suddenly from a brain aneurism. Now she didn't attend our church, nor was she a family member, no she was the youngster that woke us up every morning between 4:30 and 5 on the radio. A young lady whose voice we have come to love and the child who helped us get 100 tickets to a baseball game last spring. Julie, like Alamo Girl's brother, is a Born Again Believer, she like him is now resting in the arms of the Lord. As Alamo Girl and her family will miss her brother, so shall Julie be missed in the Norway Maine area, one day, I will once again here Julies voice and at that very same instant I'll meet Alamo Girl's brother.

How about you, what's important in your life? The word of God or the new rug? Spending eternity with Julie and Alamo Girl's brother with the Lord or following the dictates of government?

Luke 16:25-26
25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

Which side of the gulf will you be on? Are you sure? Till tomorrow, may the Lord Jesus touch your heart, open your eyes and call you to Him.

Oh Lord God in heaven, I pray that You will open the eyes of those whom I pray to you for. Amen.

And may the God of gods, Yahweh Bless you and yours in the name of His son, our Messiah Yahshauh

Born Again? Know a heathen?

Born Again? Know a heathen?

Are you a Born Again washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian? Can you read John the third chapter and say "yes Lord"?

If you are, then join with us in selecting one heathen and praying for him or her this month. One of your kids, a family member, a friend or even the folks across the street. But think of one as we say this prayer together.

Oh Father in heaven I pray that this very day you will take the ones who are on my heart, the ones I lift up to you and burn upon their hearts John the third chapter, I pray to Thee Father of whom all things are possible that you would this very day remove the scales from their eyes, the wax from their ears and the hardness from their hearts. That you would though the precious blood of Your Son Jesus wash away their sins and welcome them into the family that will spend eternity in the kingdom of heaven. In Jesus name I pray, amen.

Why are we praying this? Because Jesus teaches us that everyone will bend the knee to Him everyone will acknowledge that He is God. Some will do it while they are alive on earth, they will be forgiven of their sins and they will spend eternity in heaven. All of the rest will do it at the great white throne of judgement and they will do it on their way to hell.

As you read the following Scripture continually ask the Father to touch the heart(s) of the one(s) you are praying for.

John 3:1-36 CHAPTER 3

1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto Him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus saith unto Jesus, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

9 Nicodemus answered and said unto Jesus, How can these things be?
10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but He that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15 That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.

16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not Jesus into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on Jesus is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

19 And this is the condemnation, that Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than Light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the Light, neither cometh to the Light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the Light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

22 After these things came Jesus and His disciples into the land of Judaea; and there He tarried with them, and baptized.
23 And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized.
24 For John was not yet cast into prison.
25 Then there arose a question between some of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying.
26 And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, He that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to Him.
27 John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.
28 Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before Him.
29 He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.
30 He must increase, but I must decrease.
31 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: He that cometh from heaven is above all.
32 And what He hath seen and heard, that He testifieth; and no man receiveth His testimony.
33 He that hath received His testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.
34 For He whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto Him.
35 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into His hand.
36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

Oh Lord God in heaven, I pray that You will open the eyes of those whom I pray to you for. Amen.

"Hear me preach ye sinners hear me preach!"

If you open your Bibles and you start reading at John 6:31 and you read through the end of that chapter, you'll find that even back two thousand years ago, disciples of Christ took a hike when the Word got tough. Just like today, oh so many preachers are more interested in the collection plate and making you happy and being liked and being patted on the back than they are preaching the Word of God. They are more interested it seems in your friendship then they are your soul.

But, where does salvation lay? Who is ultimately responsible for your salvation and your soul? Is it the preacher who stands up and yells, "Hear me preach ye sinners hear me preach!" or is it you? Oh how easy it would be to say, don't worry be happy, it is the preacher the Lord will hold responsible, but that is not the case. You see, time after time, God warns us of false prophets and false preachers and those warnings are to you, so that you can be wary and you can make sure you end up in heaven with Jesus for eternity and not in hell with the false preacher.

Let's look at one of those warnings:

Matthew 7:15-21
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

How much clearer could Jesus be? Here He is telling you that not all who claim to preach in His name are actually Saved, some of them, He tells us, He doesn't know, that means they are on their way to hell. Don't follow them. Always read your Bible, always check everything that every preacher says against the Word of God, the Bible, for in the end, your salvation is your responsibility, not mine, not the preachers down the streets, Yours!

Start by reading John 3: over and over again. Read John 3 every day for two months, read it until you understand exactly what Jesus is saying. The third chapter of John is the most important chapter in the Bible. For it is the chapter where Jesus walks you through being saved.

May the Lord Jesus, the Messiah, be with you and bless you, may HE help the young soldier on Ft. Knox deal with his daughters terminal sickness. May He bless the little girl and use this illness to open the eyes and soften the hearts of many. And if it not oppose His will, may HE just cure her. I ask this of the Father Yahweh in the sacred name of our Lord, our Saviour Yeshua, the Christ.
And may the Lord be with Alamo Girl and her family as they gather to bury her borther, May He help them to remember how much better a place he goes.
Amen.

Is abortion, the unpardonable sin?

Is abortion, the unpardonable sin?

Is abortion the unpardonable sin mentioned in Mark three? Are abortionist and abortion supporters damned for all eternity? My study of the Word of God leads me to believe the answer is an unequivocal YES!

Can Born Again Believers pray to the Father in heaven asking Him to do to those who commit abortion and those who support abortion, what they so freely administer to the baby in the womb? Again and unequivocal YES!

Does the Lord JESUS condemn the very act of abortion? Again YES!

Let me show you

Luke 1:31
31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call His name JESUS.

God Almighty came to earth as a baby in Mary's womb! You want to call Him "just a fetus"?

Matthew 18:5-7
5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

Mark 3:28-29
28 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:
29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:

1 Corinthians 3:16-17
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

So far, we see that when God was on earth in the form of a man called by the name of JESUS, that God Himself told us that blaspheming the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven and he who does it is in danger of damnation. Paul goes on to tell us in first Corinthians that Holy Spirit lives within us.
That we are the temple of the Holy Ghost.

Let me just leave you with one more bit of Scripture if I may.

John 15:13
13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Now let me ask you a question, is there any man out there who is the friend of the baby in the womb that is about to be offered up as blood sacrifice to satan by one of his high priest the abortionist? May the Lord God above, the Creator of heaven and earth and all things on and in them bless those friends of the baby in the womb and may He find in His heart forgiveness for my cowardice in not doing more to stop this baal worshiping slaughter of His gift to an unworthy and degenerate people.

May the Lord thy God be with the baby and do unto those, who do and support the abortion of those little ones, what they would do to His little ones. May His blessing be upon those that are slaughtered and His vengeance upon those who slaughter these little ones, may He treat those who protect, pay and befriend the abortionist as I pray He will the abortionist. May His judgement come upon those that kill the baby in the womb. And may those who kill the baby see the error of their ways and come to the Lord on bended knees asking and begging for His forgiveness, may He open their eyes and let them stop the slaughter and embrace Him and His gifts. To the Father I pray in the name of the Son and through His Holy Spirit. Amen.

May the Lord be with you.

The most obedient Son!

Matthew 26:36-42
36 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.
37 And He took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.
38 Then saith He unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.
39 And Jesus went a little further, and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.
40 And Jesus came unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?
41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.

Why is the Lord sorrowful, why is His heart heavy? What is He referring to when He says "O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done."? The Lord is talking about the upcoming cup of His crucifixion. The ultimate act of obedience, God the Son going to the cross to atone for the sins of His lowly creations at the request of God the Father.

Jesus could have stopped the whole thing, at any time He could have simply ordered the world to stop and all creation would have flown off into empty space. But no, instead, Jesus, God the Son, the Messiah, the Christ, went up on the cross to shed His precious and pure Blood so that you and I could have the only way to salvation. For it is only through His sacrifice, what He did on the cross, that we can be saved.

John 19:28-30
28 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, said, I thirst.
29 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to His mouth.
30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

Now that is obedience.

May the Lord be with you.

Honor thy Mother and Father? Always?

Christianity 101:Obedience

Honor thy Mother and Father? Always?


Exodus 20:12
12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

How serious is God when HE says this? Look and see.

Genesis 22:7-10
7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?
8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.
9 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.
10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.

And

Genesis 19:4-8
4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:
5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.
6 And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,
7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.
8 Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.

When Abraham, Isaac's father, was one hundred and fifteen years old and Isaac was fifteen or so, Isaac was ordered by his father Abraham to lay down on the wood, allow himself to be tied and patiently wait while his father raised a knife to kill him.

When Lot wanted to keep the homosexuals in Sodom from attacking and raping the angels of God, he was willing to order his daughters out to service these men in any way they desired, even though both his daughters were virgins. We have no reason to believe the girls would have done anything other than obey their father and service these men.

So, how obedient are children to be?
How far does "Honour thy father and thy mother:" go?
If the parents are God fearing and Born Again, they are to be obeyed regardless. For, God will not allow anything to happen to the obedient child. With Isaac,

Genesis 22:11-12
11 And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.
12 And He said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from Me.

And with Lot's daughters,

Genesis 19:9-11
9 And the Sodomites said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door.
10 But the angels put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door.
11 And the angels smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.

In both cases God prevented harm from befalling the obedient children. If you are a Born Again Believer and your parents order you to do something, do it, but don't stop praying, for God will not let any harm befall you or your children if you put your trust in Him. The key is trust in God! Trust His word to be true know that all things that happen to Born Again Believers happen because God has allowed it to happen and that it is part of His plan. He who created you can use you any way He wants. We live to serve Him, not ourselves. He does not exist to serve us!

The Lord thy God be with you.

What, You Want Me To Do WHAT??

Christianity 101: FAITH

God said to Abraham:

Genesis 22:1-2
1 And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and Abraham said, Behold, here I am.
2 And God said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.

Joshua 6:2-5
2 And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour.
3 And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days.
4 And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams' horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets.
5 And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram's horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him.

And what did Abraham do?
Did he look up to heaven and say "What, you want me to do what???"

No, Abraham:

Genesis 22:3
3 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.

How about Joshua, did Joshua look up to heaven and say "What, you want me to do what???"

No, Joshua:

Joshua 6:6-7
6 And Joshua the son of Nun called the priests, and said unto them, Take up the ark of the covenant, and let seven priests bear seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the LORD.
7 And he said unto the people, Pass on, and compass the city, and let him that is armed pass on before the ark of the LORD.

These two men, trusted God, they had FAITH in God, they knew that God, the Creator, could and would do anything HE said HE would do. And what happened? Did Isaac get offered as a burnt offering?

Genesis 22:9-13
9 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.
10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.
11 And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and Abraham said, Here am I.
12 And the angel of the Lord said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me. (Notice the speaker is the Angel of the Lord and at the end of the verse says "for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me." the Angel of the Lord is Jesus.)
13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.

And how about Joshua? Did he end up looking like a fool? Hardly, look:

Joshua 6:8-20 8 And it came to pass, when Joshua had spoken unto the people, that the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams' horns passed on before the LORD, and blew with the trumpets: and the ark of the covenant of the LORD followed them.
9 And the armed men went before the priests that blew with the trumpets, and the rereward came after the ark, the priests going on, and blowing with the trumpets.
10 And Joshua had commanded the people, saying, Ye shall not shout, nor make any noise with your voice, neither shall any word proceed out of your mouth, until the day I bid you shout; then shall ye shout.
11 So the ark of the LORD compassed the city, going about it once: and they came into the camp, and lodged in the camp.
12 And Joshua rose early in the morning, and the priests took up the ark of the LORD.
13 And seven priests bearing seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the LORD went on continually, and blew with the trumpets: and the armed men went before them; but the rereward came after the ark of the LORD, the priests going on, and blowing with the trumpets.
14 And the second day they compassed the city once, and returned into the camp: so they did six days.
15 And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they rose early about the dawning of the day, and compassed the city after the same manner seven times: only on that day they compassed the city seven times.
16 And it came to pass at the seventh time, when the priests blew with the trumpets, Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for the LORD hath given you the city.
17 And the city shall be accursed, even it, and all that are therein, to the LORD: only Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all that are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent.
18 And ye, in any wise keep yourselves from the accursed thing, lest ye make yourselves accursed, when ye take of the accursed thing, and make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it.
19 But all the silver, and gold, and vessels of brass and iron, are consecrated unto the LORD: they shall come into the treasury of the LORD.
20 So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.

What did Abraham and Joshua have? FAITH! And that is what is required of us today, FAITH. We must have faith, we have to have faith that every word spoken by God in His book, the Holy Bible is true, accurate and will be fulfilled. We must believe by faith that we are Saved and on our way to an eternity with Christ, not by our works, but by His Blood and His Grace.

We must have faith when we pray "Oh Father God in heaven please come live within me as God the Holy Spirit, I pray in the name of God the Son JESUS." For it is by faith that we accept and believe in the TRINITY.
Amen

How How can this be....

Christianity 101

Throughout the last six thousand years, man has found reasons to question God. Some of these questions have been stupid and led to their death and others were so good, they made it into God's Word, the Holy Bible. In John 3, we see one such question and answer, dealing with being Born Again.

John 3:1-7
1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

Another good question deals with the Trinity. How can a man pray to the Father through the Son and still be praying to Jesus. While just about every Christian church, liberal to ultra orthodox mentions the Trinity, very few actually deal with it. Yet, it is probably one of the most difficult of all Christian facts for new believers to understand. They have little problem believing, for once a person is Born Again, the Holy Spirit places that believe in their hearts, but, belief, commitment and acceptance are sometimes different from understanding.

Jesus, the Messiah, the Christ, God. Understood that, so HE went on in John 3;

John 3:8-12
8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
9 Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?
10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

Look carefully at verses 8-12, do you see where what the Lord is telling us is that some things we just can't fully understand, such as where does the wind come from, yet we know there is wind. We know there is wind because we can feel it with our earthly senses, yet, we don't know really what it is. Gravity is another example, so is electricity. Now what Jesus is telling us is that even though you don't understand these earthly things, you believe in them. You believe in them because man has told you about them and you can sense them with your human senses.

Same thing with being Born Again and the Trinity. Once you have accepted Jesus as God, the Holy Spirit, who is God, moves into your heart and directs your understanding that the Father the Son and the Holy Ghost are one. While no man can explain it to another man, the Holy Spirit within us livens up the Spiritual senses that only those who are Born Again have and we believe, without understanding. Does that mean we are wrong to question? In the words of my old friend and fellow saint Paul, "God forbid". No we should question, for that questioning is what brings us into the Word of God, the Bible, looking for God's Words and God's truths.

Matthew 28:18-20
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

And who but God has all power in heaven and in earth?

John 10:30
30 I and my Father are one.

So, when you pray to the Father in the name of the Son, you are praying to God in the name of God, just as God commanded you to when He was on earth in the form of the Son.

Matthew 18:19-20
19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

Do you have to understand all things? NO!

Do you have to obey all things commanded by Jesus? YES!

Will you loose your salvation and go to hell if you slip and or don't do everything commanded by the Lord after you are truly Born Again? NO! And let no man tell you differently, for there is nothing in Scripture to support the lose of salvation once attained except for:

Mark 3:29
29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:

May the Lord Jesus who is the CHRIST, the MESSIAH, GOD, be with you and within you, may HE help you to understand that which you ask HIM to understand.

When in doubt, get on your knees and ask God for the answer. Ask God the Father in the name of God the Son to have God the Holy Spirit help you understand.

Free That Boy mr. clinton!

Free That Boy mr. clinton!

Genesis 4:17
17 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.

Genesis 5:3
3 And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth:

Numbers 1:
6 Of Simeon; Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai.
7 Of Judah; Nahshon the son of Amminadab.
8 Of Issachar; Nethaneel the son of Zuar.
9 Of Zebulun; Eliab the son of Helon.

Notice something, the Bible says his son, never does it say the son of the government. And when the Bible refers to a son as belonging, yes, belonging to anyone other than that boy's earthly father, it is referring to God Almighty, not bill clinton!

Daniel 3:25
25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

Matthew 27:54
54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

Matthew 8:29
29 And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?
Even the demons in hell know the meaning of the word son, just who does mr. clinton think he is.

We as a nation, we kill no less than 2 million of our own sons and daughters each year while they sleep in the supposed safety of their mother's wombs, we kill them when the have no place to run and no where to hide and no one to raise a finger to help them, for in this country it is better to let the abortionist slaughter in safety and security then it is to raise a finger to stop it or harm a hair on it's head or damage a shingle of it's lair.

But now we are not content to just kill our own, now we bomb and destroy others kids, export the slaughter of babies in the womb world wide, give the nation with the most forced abortions Most Favored Nation status and steal the loved sons of men from little countries that can not do even one thing to get them back. For men in Cuba have no more internal fortitude then men in the USA it seems when it comes to defending their own sons.

Give the boy back mr. clinton, give the boy back or face the wrath of HE who entrusted the welfare of that boy to his earthly father. If you wanted a son that badly, why didn't you stop your sons from being aborted?

Yes, we do have proof of evolution!

As you will see, Scripture does show that man has indeed evolved, for we, in just three thousand short years, have evolved from a time when the bastard son of a whore named Jephthah keep his word till the time of William Jefferson Blythe Clinton, the president of the United States, a man incapable of telling the truth even when it comes to telling you his own name, sets the standards for American principals and morality.

Judges 11:

30 And Jephthah vowed a vow unto the LORD, and said, If thou shalt without fail deliver the children of Ammon into mine hands, (See it, see the vow that Jephthah made to God, well that was Jephthah's resolution to God.)
31 Then it shall be, that whatsoever cometh forth of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the children of Ammon, shall surely be the LORD's, and I will offer it up for a burnt offering. (Jephthah has made a resolution to God that if God will let him beat the Ammonites, he, Jephthah will offer up to God what ever first comes out of his door to greet him when he gets home.)

32 So Jephthah passed over unto the children of Ammon to fight against them; and the LORD delivered them into his hands.
33 And he smote them from Aroer, even till thou come to Minnith, even twenty cities, and unto the plain of the vineyards, with a very great slaughter. Thus the children of Ammon were subdued before the children of Israel. (Now, keep in mind the resolution that Jephthah made to God, that if God were to give him the victory, he would offer up, as a burnt offering the first thing that came out of his house to greet him upon his return. For this is how serious your vows or resolutions should be if you are Born again.)

34 And Jephthah came to Mizpeh unto his house, and, behold, his daughter came out to meet him with timbrels and with dances: and she was his only child; beside her he had neither son nor daughter. (His daughter was the first one to greet him, not the family dog as he had perhaps thought, but his only child, his daughter.)

35 And it came to pass, when he saw her, that he rent his clothes, and said, Alas, my daughter! thou hast brought me very low, and thou art one of them that trouble me: for I have opened my mouth unto the LORD, and I cannot go back. (....and I cannot go back. He has told his daughter of his vow and told her that he can not back out of it, that he must abide by his vow.)

36 And she said unto him, My father, if thou hast opened thy mouth unto the LORD, do to me according to that which hath proceeded out of thy mouth; forasmuch as the LORD hath taken vengeance for thee of thine enemies, even of the children of Ammon. (Look how serious a vow must have been, for does she beg him to put it aside and save her? No, she says, you made the vow, you must keep the vow, for God held up His end, so you must hold up your end.)

So, yes we have evolved in the last three thousand years, we have evolved from men whose words were honest and true, men who when they gave their word, even as lowly bastard sons of whores, that word was as good as gold, to a day and age when presidents lie, cheat, steal, rape, murder and commit treason with total and absolute impunity because those who are placed in the position of judging him are worse.

May God help us get back to being Jephthah's and may He rescue us from and rid the earth of those who mock His name and His values.

01-01-2000, really? Wow!

Well, we made it, we made it into the year two thousand and the only acts of terrorism in the country came at the hands of the police. Praise God.

The legends in their own minds that make up what will jokingly refer to as the main stream media sounded almost disappointed as the clock stuck midnight and no bombs went off. Many a preacher had nothing to say at this morning service, since to their way of thinking, God did not send the USA and the world a wake up call.

I beg to differ!

God did send us a wake up call, He proved once again that HE and only HE is in control. Once again the government of this once great country of ours tried to start an internal conflict and once again God looked down laughed at the feeble attempts of clinton, his minions and his ilk and seems to have said, "Not this week billy!". For clinton along with his cohorts in the media did try to ignite the flames of revolution, if for no other reason than to give him an excuse to call in his friends in NATO, China and Russia to put down the flames of right wing militia rabble trying to reduce the democracy to rubble to raise back up the Republic which we had. But, God once more has proven faithful to His servants and overruled the powers and lackeys of satan.

The lesson for us to learn and the message that God has sent is that He is faithful to those who serve Him and that even in this modern day of computers and police departments with hundreds of pounds of high explosives, satan, his minions, his ilk and those who serve him in this governments and within the police forces of the nation, can do nothing to Gods people without God's permission.

Job 1:6-12

6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.
7 And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.
8 And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?
9 Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?
10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.
11 But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.
12 And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD.

And as it was in the land of Uz four thousand years ago, so is it in the land of US of A today. The agents of satan can not raise their hands against the people of God without GOD'S permission.

Praise GOD! And just who are the people of God? Those who have done as Jesus has commanded in John 3!

John 3:3
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

John 3:16
16 For God so loved the world, that God gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:18
18 He that believeth on Jesus is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Who? Born Again Christians that's who!

So, start the new year out right, be honest with yourselves, are you going to be one of God's people or are you going to be one of bill clinton's people. For you can not serve two masters, you can not serve the God of Light, Truth, Justice and Love, The Messiah Jesus Christ and clinton, abortion, lies, deceit, murder, child abuse, and satan at the same time.

Matthew 6:24
24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Happy 2000, and thank You Lord Jesus for once again protecting Your people from satan's minions.

...Tithing 101...

...Tithing 101...

Not long ago I heard a preacher say on television that bill clinton would have made a good preacher. Well, in a sense that isn't all an out and out lie, for to some denominations the ability to separate money from the flock is more important then preaching the word of God. And in that case, I would have to agree, bill clinton would do a great job, for taking one's money under false pretenses is one of his many specialities.

Let's take a look at tithing.

Leviticus 27:

30 And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD's: it is holy unto the LORD.
32 And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD.

It is Holy unto who??? Now look here:

Now when the priests and scribes, council and the rest got to the point where they stopped using the tithe just for God's work, look what Jesus said:

Matthew 23:23-29

23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.
26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.
28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,

OK, tithing:

Today's Christian churches would have a very difficult time keeping the doors open without your financial support. But, like your salvation, tithing properly is your responsibility as well. God very clearly tells us to return ten percent, but to whom? Not to just a church, bishop, priest, rabbi or preacher, but to Him and His work. This may very easily be your church, but it may also mean that you need to listen to God and spread that money around a bit.

I'm going to tell you a bit about my wife and my tithing. While Cecily and I attend a very fundamental church on Sundays. Pastored by a man who has been preaching for over fifty years, we also send money annually to several Christian radio ministries and we use a portion of her pay for this ministry.

Rather than just taking and writing a check for ten percent and putting it in the collection plate, use some of that money to further God's work on your own. I would prefer that member of my Internet church use a portion of if not all of his tithes in winning souls for the Lord then sending it to me. Yet, we do need to pay the phone bill, lights, etc. So, how do you know what to do in tithing? Ask God and listen very very carefully. For when you give a down and out family milk, you are tithing, if, while giving them the milk, you also leave them with a bit of Scripture.

May the Lord Jesus bless you all and help you in this new year that He is giving us to use the resources He has provided you with to do His will and His work.

...getting back to Back to Basics.

When sales start to slip or business slackens for one reason or another, when lawyers run into what seems to be a solid concrete wall, when surgeons stumble and football teams fumble, oft times we hear the phase, "it's time for us to be getting back to basics". So what's it mean, this phase getting back to basics? Simple, it simply means getting back to what made us or them successful when they were successful, doing away with the fancy frills and getting back to the nuts and bolts, the foundations.

America and particularly the Christians in America need to do just that, we need to get our noses out of the televisions, radios and printed trash lining the walls of magazines, newspapers and book shops. We need to get back to the foundations we need to get back to the basics.

Exodus 20:3-5

3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
(God first, not cars, trucks, books, sex, money or anything else. Not the job, the president, the promotion or the house in the country. For anything that you spend more time on then you do God is your god.)

Exodus 20:7

7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
(Holy mackerel, by golly, my goodness, by gosh and gosh darn it are all forms of taking Gods name in vain, you are using those terms as acceptable alternatives to using God's name. If I know it and you know it, you don't think He who created both of us knows it? Don't do it.)

Exodus 20:8-11

8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
(The little girl asked her dad if he was going to take them to church or were she and her mom going alone. She went on to tell him how they prayed and sang hymns. He said, "Oh no, we are all going to the beach today". He continued on by telling her that they could pray and sing hymns at the beach. She looked a bit disappointed and smiling up at him said, "We can, but we won't will we". One day, one lousy day a week is all the Lord your God ask.)

Exodus 20:12

12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
(Hard at a time when a huge segment of our country doesn't even know who their father is.)

Exodus 20:13-15

13 Thou shalt not kill.
14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
15 Thou shalt not steal.
(Don't commit murder, don't commit adultery and don't steal. Simple if we could get it through our thick heads that oral sex, anal sex and all sex with anyone other than the one your married to of the opposite sex is adultery. Don't steal, not just at the super market or the bank, but anywhere, don't take that pen home from work, don't extend your coffee break, your being paid to work, when you extend that coffee break, your stealing time, which is money.)

Exodus 20:16

16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
(Thou shall not lie! If what you are saying is anything other then the truth, it is a lie and that is what you are not suppose to do.)

Exodus 20:17

17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.
(Keep you hands and mind on your own stuff, the grass isn't greener on the other guy's side of the fence.)

Yes, let's get back to basics.

..."God's love"?...

So just what is meant by "God's love"?

How often we hear and read of God's love. But just what is this love? Is it love like you feel for you puppy, kids, wife or parents? Yes, only so much more. While both our love for one another, our pets and our loved ones is, like God's love for us, contingent upon some actions or lack of actions taken by those desiring the love, God's is purer, totally unrestrained and dependent upon one thing and one thing only. And that one thing is so easy that anyone can do it.

Not long ago, many took me to task for referring to people as either Born Again believers or heathens. A close and dear friend called and said, "you mean so and so, is a heathen"? Well, this simple distinction between Born Again Christian and heathen is the proof of Gods absolute and unconditional love.

We say, "I'll be your friend if you'll help me paint my house" or if you want to be my friend, you'll stop hitting me with that bat". God has a condition too, but it's a lot easier than painting your house.

You see, God doesn't care what you were before you're Born Again. You could be a whore, a druggy, a killer, homosexual, lesbian or adulterer. You could have been a liberal Christ denying preacher, politician or lawyer. Makes no difference to Yahshuah. None what so ever, He has one condition and only one condition and that condition He has left completely up to you. But this condition is so important that it will make the difference between being Saved and spending eternity in heaven or being condemned and spending eternity in hell. And it is you that will make that decision, I can't make it for you, nor can anyone else. It has nothing to do with how nice a guy you are or how many nice things you do for others.

Read the following verses of Scripture carefully, read it as if you have never seen it before, read it, don't read between the lines, just read what Jesus the Messiah has said.

John 3:16-18
16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.

18 He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

That is love. How many of you can look your kids in the eye and say to them, "I don't care what you did or said, I don't care if you used drugs, committed murder, robbed banks or raped men and women, all I care about is that you believe that I'm your parent and if you do, I'll love you unconditionally. Makes no difference how many times you burnt down the house, wrecked the car and stole the family fortune, just tell me that I am your parent and I'll love you and forgive you for ever unconditionally."

Yet that is what the Messiah has said, He tells us that "He that believeth on Him is not condemned". That is true love. It makes no difference when in your life you do it, it can never be to late, but and here is one very big but,

but

, you must be truthful when you say it, for God knows your heart, and you must still be alive.

The Messiah, the Lord Jesus be with you. Amen

Not; I forgive you, but, neither do I condemn ...

John 8:1-11

1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
2 And early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him; and the Lord sat down, and taught them.
3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought to Jesus a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
4 They say unto Him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. (Notice that the scribes and the Pharisees, called Jesus "Master".)

5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? (Leviticus 20:10 And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.)
6 This they said, tempting Him, that they might have to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though He heard them not.

7 So when they continued asking Him, He lifted up Himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

8 And again Jesus stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

10 When Jesus had lifted up Himself, and saw none but the woman, He said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

Now read carefully,
11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

Jesus never forgave her, He simply told her that neither would He condemn her, but that she should go and sin no more. He didn't tell her to just go, He told her to go and sin no more. But, keep this in mind also, those scribes and Pharisees, well, notice how they put their tails between their legs and just slunk away? Do you see anything there to indicate that they were looked upon favorably by the Lord? At least with the woman, He gave her a light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak, by telling her that He didn't condemn her and that she should go and sin no more. This is important. Back in John 3:16-18 we see that Jesus does not condemn, He lets us decide to either be saved or unsaved, He lets us condemn ourselves by not believing on Him.

Only when the Lord was asked for forgiveness did He grant forgiveness, only when He was asked for healing did He heal someone. And it is the same today, to be forgiven, you must ask the Lord to forgive you. To be healed, you must ask the Lord to heal you. And that is what salvation is, asking to Lord to forgive you and be within you to heal you.

Can an adulterer be forgiven? Can a drunkard be forgiven? Can a crooked politician be forgiven? Yes, but first they must confess their sin, ask Jesus for forgiveness, ask the Lord to come and live within them and then go and sin no more.

The Lord Jesus, the Messiah be with you all,

So, now what do we do?

Well, I see some have already taken down the trees, put away the lights and gone back to Stephen King novels and acid rock. Is that what we are suppose to do? Is that we should do right after Christmas?

I don' think so and neither did the invited guest to the birth of the Lord, for they went away "...glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, ...". Maybe we should take one more look at the birth of the Lord and a few of the invited guests as they leave.

Luke 2:8-20

8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. (The invited guests were not Herod and his princes, they were the shepherds. Just like David, a lowly and common shepherd.)

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe Jesus lying in a manger.

17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.
18 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.
19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. While the shepherds were returning to the drudgery of their every day jobs, notice how they were "glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen,".

Isn't that the way we should be? Shouldn't we have love in our hearts, a sound on our lips and praise for the Lord God Yahshuah in our hearts.

The peace of the Lord Jesus be with you and in you all.

Wow ! A new Rolex watch...



Amazing isn't it, how excited we get over the presents friends and loved ones give us for CHRISTmas. And then as we admire these gifts, how often we say things like, "I'll cherish this forever" or "I'll keep this looking shiny and new for ever". But, what about the gifts God has given you? How do you treat and care for those gifts?

God bestowed upon two men the gift of writing and imagination, Dr. Seuss and Stephen King. Dr. Seuss used his gift from the Creator to enlighten and lighten the lives and hearts of both children and adults alike, while Mr. King used his gift from God to bring horror, mayhem and the glorification of hellish practice to both the screen and the printed page.

The Lord Jesus gives to two men the gift of being doctors, one uses this gift and skill to kill babies while they sleep in their mothers wombs, another, like my friend Dr. Alan Bean, uses this same gift from the Lord to operate on babies in the womb to save and enhance their little lives.

The Lord bestowed the gifts of leadership and communicating upon two individuals, our first president George Washington, who went down in history for saying "I can not tell a lie!". and our current president, william jefferson blythe clinton, who is incapable of telling the truth, even about his own name.

How are you using the gifts the Lord Jesus gave you? Will you be remembered as one who used your gifts from God as a Dr. Bean, General Washington, Dr. Seuss have done? Or as a stephen king, abortionist or bill clinton?

And this one more gift that the Lord gave you, the gift of salvation, will you follow in the steps of John, Paul, Peter, James, Barnabas, Lester Kringle, Warren Feustal, Al Jurenas, Dr. Alan Bean and my wife Cecily, Tabitha, Helen, Dorothy and Joyce Boos? Or will you use your gift from God to follow in the footsteps of; Judas, Herod, Jezebel, Pilate, Ahab, Stalin, and Hitler? The gift is there for your taking, the choice is up to you, but the default is to go with the latter, not the former.

John 3:16-18

16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Jesus should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not Jesus, His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.

18 He that believeth on Jesus is not condemned: but he that believeth not on Jesus is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.taken from the KJV

May the Lord Jesus whose birth we celebrate this season be with you and yours and may you use His gifts to you to serve Him and His creations, not to destroy and corrupt.

Fear not...



Fear not....

Fear is natural, we all suffer from it or experience it sometimes during our lives, but, fear is not from God, fear is from satan. Think of the things we fear? The irs, the batf, the fbi, cancer, heart disease, the loss of a loved one and eternity in hell. Do you think any of these things are of God? Of course not they are of satan. For while satan is the father of sins and lies and fear and hatred and the irs, batf, fbi and the rest of the things we fear, the Lord Jesus is of just the opposite.

Look: look at what God tells us when we fear;

Genesis
15:1 After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.

21:17-19
17 And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is.
18 Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation.
19 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.

26:24 And the LORD appeared unto him the same night, and said, I am the God of Abraham thy father: fear not, for I am with thee, and will bless thee, and multiply thy seed for my servant Abraham's sake.

And look here:

Matthew 1:19-21
19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. 20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. 21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Luke 1:29-33
29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call His name JESUS.
32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto Him the throne of His father David: (note, His father David, does not mean that Jesus's Father was David, it means that his great great great grandfather on His mother Mary's side and on Joseph's side was David. If you need help understanding this, let me know.)
33 And He shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of His kingdom there shall be no end.

And finally, concerning the things of satan that we most fear and despise, like the irs, batf, fbi, murderers, rapist, terrorist and heathens;

Matthew 10:28

28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Fear not men like clinton, his minions, his ilk and those who grovel at his feet, little puny creations that can do nothing but send you into the arms of the Lord if you are saved, fear Him, fear God, for HE can not only kill the body, HE can and will to those who do not fear and love Him, kill the body and then cast it into everlasting damnation.

But, make that choice soon, for as Paul has told us in his letter to the Hebrews:
Hebrews 9:27 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

Can Lou the fbi back shooter be saved?



President clinton has a fbi favorite agent, his name is Lou and Lou kills people. Oh not criminals and the such, but women nursing their babies, and puppies and kittens that belong to little babies and toddlers and then the toddlers and babies themselves. Sometime clinton sends Lou out to kill grown men but then Lou hides behind things and shoots them from ambush, you see Lou's not a brave man, Lou just wants to serve and be recognized, so Lou does clinton's killing and get's material rewards and pats on the back.

But, does Lou have to go to hell? Can Lou be Saved?

Jesus tells us that only Lou can determine that. Jesus did all that needed to be done for Lou to have the choice of salvation or damnation, but Lou must make the choice.

John 3:16-18
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Let's write this as if the conversation were not between Jesus and a whole bunch of people but instead as if it were just Jesus talking to Lou.

Lou, God so loved the world, that He sacrificed His only begotten Son, so that if you Lou, believe in Him you will not perish, but will have everlasting life in heaven with God. For Lou, God didn't send Jesus into the world to condemn you to an eternity of hell; but to give you a way through Jesus' sacrifice and blood, to be saved. Look, Lou, if you believe on Jesus, you are not condemned to hell: but if you refuse to believe on Jesus, you have condemned yourself to an eternity of hell, because you hath not believed in the name of Jesus, the only begotten Son of God. Lou, you won't go to hell when you die for the killings, you'll go to hell when you die for denying Jesus.

But, Lou, like everyone, needs to make that choice soon, for as Paul has told us in his letter to the Hebrews:
Hebrews 9:27 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

The Lord Jesus be with you only, this government would slap the Lord and His people this way in the time we celebrate His birth. And I beseech all of you, wether you live in California or not to drop to your knees and ask the Lord to protect our brothers and sisters in Christ who live in California and elsewhere in the country from the police who would trample our God given and constitutional bestowed rights.

Do Californians have to give up their guns?

In the words of the Apostle Paul, "God forbid". The state of California has ordered that anyone owning a certain type of so called assault rifle must turn them into the state by January 2nd, 2000 or they will be confiscated. Let us look at the word of God and the Constitution to see what Californians should do within the sight of the Lord.

Matthew 22:17-21

17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?

18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?
19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.

20 And Jesus saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?

21 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith God unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.

Now the liberals will tell you that these verses tell you that you must do what ever the government tells you to do, regardless of what that order is, they will support this nonsense by going to Peter,

1 Peter 2:13-14

13 Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;
14 Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.

Let's look at Matthew first. Here, the jews have tried to trap Jesus, they are trying to get Him to cause a riot by telling folks not to pay taxes. For that is what the discussion is all about and Jesus tells them to pay the taxes, because the government has the right to collect taxes and today, our Constitution, because of the foolishness of our grandparents, does in fact allow the federal bureaucracies to tax your income. But, what about confiscating your guns or even telling you to surrender them?

In First Peter, we see Peter telling us that we are to submit to the government, and with that I am in total agreement. In New Zealand, Japan , England , Australia and every country on earth EXCEPT these united States, those in office are the government, they are the leaders and their orders to disarm are lawful and should be followed, but here in these United States? NO!

Here in the USA, we the people are the government, those in office are not our leaders, but our public servants. What is Caesar in the USA today? The written Constitution, that's what. Article Six section Six of our Constitution very clearly states that the Constitution is the supreme law of the land, not clinton, not his secret federal gestapos, not the governor of California, but the Constitution. And the Constitution is very clear that Californians have the right to own and bear and USE these weapons. The idea of a militia is not to protect the nation from the Chinese or the Russian, Mexicans or Canadians, it is to protect the people from a government gone berserk, such as that government in California.

If ever there were a time to just say no to the government, this would be the time, but if they will not take no for an answer, the word of God does not support the state of California's actions in any way shape of form and neither does the Constitution of the United States.

What would I suggest to those who attend the Church for the American Christian patriot in California, as your pastor I would say this to you; If you are not prepared to defend your right to own and bear those arms, rather then surrender them , take them and your family and move to Maine or New Hampshire.

I pray that the Lord Jesus, who is the Christ, God, be with you and I pray that you will seek His answers to this and all questions, do not read just commentary, do not listen to the liberal with the government approved 501(C)3 stamp of approval, get your bible out, get on your knees and seek ye the face of the Lord. For the nation is watching what you do, if California disarms under this unlawful act by the servants in your government, it will be Massachusetts and new York, Illinois and Delaware next.

Do not judge a Christian by his cover.

Not all that appear to be followers of the Lord Jesus are, and not all that appear to be pagans are either. For it is not that which is the outwardly does the Lord see, but that which is within.

Luke 7:2-9

2 And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die.
3 And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto Him the elders of the Jews, beseeching Jesus that He would come and heal his servant.

4 And when they came to Jesus, they besought the Lord, saying, That the centurion was worthy for whom He should do this:
5 For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue.

6 Then Jesus went with them. And when Jesus was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to Him, saying unto Him, Lord, trouble not Thyself: for I am not worthy that Thou shouldest enter under my roof:
7 Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto Thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed.
8 For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.

9 When Jesus heard these things, He marveled within Himself and turned Himself about, and said unto the people that followed Him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

Would you have guessed a centurion to be a Christian back before the crucifixion? Would you not have thought of the elders in verse 3 to be righteous and holy men? But, look in verse 5, look at the criteria they have established and judged this centurion by, not his devotion, but that he built them a building.

But then, look at the faith of the centurion in verses 6-8 and what the Lord has to say about one that He knows to be one of His own in verse 9, for the centurion was and is a Christian.

As you are in the midst of the month we celebrate the birth of the Lord, are you a clinton? Are you an elder? Or are you a Centurion.

Are you committed to job, house, boss, country, family and god; or any mix other than Jesus, family, country. For if your allegiance is to anything other than the Lord first, your family next and your country third, then you are either a clinton or an elder, not a Christian and I don't care what church you attend or what you were born or even whether you claim and even think you would die for Him.

May the Lord Jesus be with you and bless you this day.

"Killem, Kill every last one of them!"

Harsh words aren't they? Can you think of any time you would utter such words? Probably not, but those same words have been used over and over through out history by governments against God's chosen children.

Two thousand years ago, the president called forth his attorney general and said:

Matthew 2:1-8

1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

3 When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.

4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.

5 And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,

6 And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.

7 Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, inquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.

8 And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.

But, what did Herod, some spell it c-l-i-n-t-o-n, really want? Did he really want to worship the King of kings, Lord of lords? Look what Herod said to his attorney general when the wise men, having been warned by God not to go back to Herod, went another way back to their own kingdoms.

Matthew 2:16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men.

Herod ordered his army and his police to "Killem, Kill every last one of them!" In 1938 Adolph Hitler, mistakenly thinking that the jews were still the chosen people, told his army and federal police to round up the jews and "Killem, Kill every last one of them!" and here in these United States, a country that guarantees the freedom of religion, not by law, but by the Constitution, after having declared the Branch Davidions a cult, bill clinton said to his federal police and his army, "Killem, Kill every last one of them!" And they did. In every case the federal police and the army bowed down to grovel at the feet of their leader and followed his orders to "Killem, Kill every last one of them!"

In the Sudan, as clinton, some spell it HEROD, fights to continue to give the muslim government that controls that country, millions more in foreign and military aid, the government has killed over one million Christians and sold into slavery a million more.

In Communist China, a government that rounds up and kills Christians for their body parts, that brags about having performed 300 million abortions since 1972 and while forcing Christians into slave labor and pornography, buys our highest offices, steals what they can't buy and targets our cities with nuclear weapons, clinton, has such hatred for Christians and Christianity that he fights to give them most favored trade status, official recognition and membership in the WTO.

While clinton, some spell it Herod, stopped the bombings to allow the heathen muslims to celebrate their high holiday, he escalated the bombings of Christians in his all out slaughter of the former Yugoslavia. Now I know that some of you will object to my calling Roman Catholics, Greek Orthodox and Russian Orthodox Christians, but they consider themselves such and more important clinton and his minions consider them to be Christians.

No Herod wasn't the first to try and erase God's chosen by force and he won't be the last, but clinton has brought this slaughter to a new level, previous to his reign, anti Christ wannabes had to be content with slaughtering God's chosen within their own borders, clinton has taken it international.

And now it appears he may be ready to turn both his federal police and his army on US Christians once again. Let us ask the Lord for two things, one to keep us safe and two to restore our nation to us, His people. And let us be ever vigilant against the enemies of the Lord and His people this CHRISTmas season. You need ask no man for permission to protect your family, only ask the Lord for His Grace and blessings for your protection that in which He has given under your protection.

For look what Joseph did as he was warned that his wife and the Lord Jesus were in danger:
Matthew 2:13-14

13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.

14 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:

Joseph asked no man for permission, he took the Child and Mary and defended them as best he could, if you can't run, you still must defend.

May the Lord Jesus be with you all.

When I was in the Marine Corps, we never left our dead, what has happened to that Corps in the last 40 years? How is it that the search has ended and the bodies abandoned of those young Marines whose helicopter crashed last week off the coast of California. Who were these boys and why have they been left to the sharks? Why are their dad's so quiet?

Homeless? The King of kings, Lord of lords?

Hogwash!

Once again the degenerates in the oval office have opened their collective mouths and out came the swill of which they are fashioned. Both clintons have gone on the record as claiming that the Lord Jesus was but a homeless underprivileged defenseless little baby that, according to some, should have been taken away from Mary and Joseph and placed in state run and operated foster care.

Once again, clinton proves the words of the Lord, for Jesus has told us that what is in the heart comes out of the mouth. Clinton and his wife, like their predecessors, Ahab and Jezebel and Herod and Herodias, would like nothing more than to remove Jesus from the scene, but let's take a look at what really happened and why the Lord was placed in a manger instead of His own crib.

Luke 2:1-7
1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.
2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

Simple huh? The government wanted their tax money, Herod, the local government lackey, kind of like today's director of fema, ordered all of the men to take their families go to the towns of their birth and pay their taxes. Joseph took Mary and headed of to Bethlehem with his pregnant wife Mary, the city was crowded and the local Inns were full, so he and Mary took shelter in a barn.

Was the Lord the poor little homeless child the clinton's and their ilk would have us believe? Well, when you consider that He made the entire earth and everything on and in it, I guess you could say that instead of being poor, Jesus is the richest man ever, for what He created, He created for His own pleasure and that includes all of the gold, silver, diamonds and other precious things on earth. But in addition to this, look at the gifts His family received for His birth;

Matthew 2:1,2,10&11
1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

Gifts of what Bill? Gold and frankincense and myrrh? You should be so poor and homeless mister president.

Hey, tomorrow, how about if we take a look at the predecessors of the fbi, batf and other secret federal police, the guys Herod sent out to hunt down and kill the baby Jesus. For today's federal police, like those 2,000 years ago, do their best to put down the Lord and His people as well.

When I was in the Marine Corps, we never left our dead, what has happened to that Corps in the last 40 years? How is it that the search has ended and the bodies abandoned of those young Marines whose helicopter crashed last week off the coast of California. Who were these boys and why have they been left to the sharks? Why are their dad's so quiet?

First Sargent, you shouldn't have got me started on this. The president and their dads may be willing to forget and abandon those young men, but I'm not and neither are any of the other former Marines out there. Stop searching for the Egyptians and start the recovery effort for those six young brave men who died, not for money, but for God, family, honor, and country.

In the beginning was the Word,...

As we move into this glorious season when we worship and praise the Lord by celebrating His birth, let us look at how John thought of and described the Lord Jesus, the Christ.

John 1:1-12
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In Him was life; and that life was the light of men.

5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through Him might believe.
8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not.
11 He came unto His own, and His own received Him not.
12 But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name:

As we focus on this season, the season celebrating the birth of the Messiah, try to picture in your mind just what John is describing. John is describing Jesus by telling us that Jesus created the world, all that is in it, on it, and around it. That nothing in heaven or earth was made that He didn't make. He is not describing a 5'11" 175 lb man who was crucified, he is describing God. For John knew that Jesus and God are one and the same.

This Jesus that we worship is not just some man, He is God the Creator, God the Father, God the Holy Spirit. He is the God that so loves us, His little rebellious creations, that He came to earth as a man to shed His blood so that we could spend eternity with Him in glory and heaven rather than satan in outer darkness and hell.

And today, just like back then, some of His still don't know Him and they reject Him, for to accept the Lord is to face up to ones sins and to acknowledge their life of sin. Give unto the Lord what is His this Christmas season, yourself, and receive from Him the best gift you could ever hope or pray for, Salvation.

May the Lord Jesus be with you and bless you this day.

What is prayer, if you're saved?

Oft times, even those who are really saved are not certain just what prayer is. Perhaps it would be easier to understand if we looked at prayer in reverse so to speak. For a prayer is your conversation with God, by way of conversation through Jesus. In reading Proverbs, we have God talking to us and if we were to read it as if we were sitting at his feet and HE was talking to us, we would start to understand prayer more fully.

The following thought is taken from Proverbs chapter two, using the NIV. The following is a loose paraphrase, I would urge you to read all of Proverbs Two from your own bible, I'm using it as an example only.

Son, if you will accept my words and remember always my commands, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, and if you call ask Jesus for insight and cry to Him for understanding, if you'll treat wisdom and understanding of His ways as if they were more precious than silver and search for it as diligently as you would for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and you will find the knowledge of God.

For only Jesus can give wisdom, and only from His mouth will you get knowledge and understanding. For through His shedding of His Blood on the cross, He holds victory in store for the Saved, He is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, for He guards and protects the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones, those who are born again through His blood. If you will do these things, then you will understand what is right and just and fair and you will strive to take every good path. For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will dwell in your soul.

By your using discretion the Holy Spirit within you will protect you, and understanding will guard you in times of strife and temptation. Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men, from men whose words are perverse. Who leave the straight paths to walk in dark ways, who delight in doing wrong and rejoice in the perverseness of evil, whose paths are crooked and who are devious in their ways.

It will save you also from the adulteress, from the wayward wife with her seductive words, who has ignored the covenant she made before God. For her ways lead to death and her paths to eternal hell. None who go to her return or attain the paths of life.

For if you hear and remember these things I'm telling you, you will walk in the ways of good men and keep to the paths of the righteous. For the upright will have eternal salvation, but the wicked will be cut off from the land, and the unfaithful will be torn from it.

So, My son, abide by my words. Now, is there anything you would like to ask? Now here, where you answer God, is prayer. When you speak to God, you are praying. It is that simply. You need not be on your knees, but nor should you just look casually over your shoulder with a beer in your hand. When you pray, it is something like a conversation with your earthly father when you were six or eight years old. As you showed respect for your earthy father, so should you show respect for your Heavenly Father, only more so. For your earthly father could only supply you with shelter and food. Your heavenly Father created the shelter, the food and the dirt from which they came.

For, if you are saved, if you have been Born Again, God is your heavenly Father, we who are Saved are the adopted sons and daughters of God the Creator, and as a result, He wants to talk to us. But those who are unsaved are the sons and daughters of satan and the Creator will not listen to anything they have to say, except for the prayer asking Jesus to come into their hearts.

We who are Saved should praise God for that fact, for have you ever heard the unsaved asking God to damn things like cars, trucks, buildings and even their own children, friends and family. Imagine the chaos if God the Father were to listen to the heathens and the pagans of the world, the vast unwashed population of unsaved.

So, when you read the Word of God, the bible, read it as if it were a letter to you. As an example, you would read Proverbs two like this, let's say your name is Forest.
Proverbs-2
1 Dearest Forest, My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;

2 So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; (KJV)

May the Lord be with and bless you all.

May the Lord Jesus be with you and bless you this day.

You want your pastor to do what???

So, what do You really want your pastor to do what???

Oh how many times I have heard folks complain about their pastor. He isn't a good administrator, or he can't even fix the plumbing, or it's just he's been here too long. I worry about those churches, I worry not only about the church, but the members within. And I'll tell you why.

The pastor of the church is like the father in a family. He is the man the church should love and respect the most of all the men in the church, for a church is not a social club, it is a place for the body of Christ to meet and learn the word of God. A pastor is not the guy responsible for balancing the check book. He's not the guy who is supposed to clean the toilets. He is the guy who is supposed to pray and preach and visit the sick. He is the guy you call when things fall apart. He's the guy you call on to pray when your wife is sick or your kid is missing.

Look: back about 1950 years ago, the church in Jerusalem was having a bit of a problem, the non Jewish Christian widows were not being treated equally with the Jewish Christian widows and the non Jews, the Greeks, were complaining. Now read what the twelve said.

Acts 6:1-4

1 And in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the Grecians against the Hebrews, because their widows were neglected in the daily ministration.(Grecians and Hebrews refer to the two different types of backgrounds that Christians came from back then, the Grecians were those that were not of a Jewish background.)

2 Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables.

3 Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.

4 But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.

In verses 2-4 what we have is the Apostles telling the people that their job is to pray and minister to them through preaching, not wait on tables, paint the church, fix the plumbing and paint the church. For those things, get yourselves a board of elders you can trust, men of honest report.

When a church treats it's pastor like dirt, you have to wonder who they will treat a member who for one reason or another falls out of their favor. There are only two acceptable reasons for firing or removing a pastor. One: He doesn't preach the word of God as it is written. And Two, he is living an immoral life according to the word of God.

If you are going to or belonging to a church that judges it's pastor by any other criteria, run from that church, for if they will not support the pastor, where for you think you fall in their pecking order.

May the Lord Jesus be with you and bless you this day.

...So, what are you waiting for? Signs?...

Acts 2:18-24

18 And on My servants and on My handmaidens I will pour out in those days of My Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
But, keep in mind, to be a prophecy from God, it has to be 100% accurate, absolutely not conflict with the written word of God, and must come 100% true.

19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
If this is the sign you're waiting for, well, it happens after the church is raptured and if you're still here, and you've read this far, you have a major problem if you're around for this sign.

21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by Him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:

23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:
In Job Chapter One we saw that even satan must get God's permission to do his evil. This government is allowed by God, just as He allows women to bring their babies to the high priest of baal called abortionist. But, as God allowed Jesus to be slaughtered by the council and their cohorts, so does God allow the clinton administration to visit evil upon us.

24 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that He should be holden of it.
And as God would not leave Jesus in death, nor will HE leave those who are saved, but, for the unsaved, well they might just want to read John 3:17 and 18.

So, what has all this to do with Luke 2:11?

Luke 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

Let me give you a hint by changing just the punctuation in the verse.

For unto you,
is born this day,
in the city of David,
a Saviour,
which is Christ the Lord!


See it?
The Lord be with you all who are Saved and for those who aren't, well, just what kind of sign are you waiting for?

May the Lord Jesus be with you and bless you this day.

...Greater love hath no man than this ...

Yesterday six firemen were remembered in a funeral ceremony attended by thousands. No sooner had the last words been said, Amazing Grace sung accompanied by the wailing bag pipes and taps played then we received word that a Marine helicopter with 18 US Marines on board had gone done in the pacific off the coast of San Diego. At this time it appears that six more men in uniform will go to be with those six firemen lost in Worcester, Massachusetts.

Jesus tells us in John 15: verse 13:

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Some men take responsibility, they take responsibility to protect us from fires, from criminals and from enemies foreign and domestic, to loose 12 such men in under a week, is hard. For it to happen to 12 men, all with families, most with younger children at the time of the year when we celebrate the greatest birth of all times, makes it even the more troubling and difficult. I would ask all of you to do three things, one if you're Born Again, pray for those left behind by these twelve young men. And all, both Born Again believers and those unsaved, look at your families and thank the Living God who gave His Son that you are still here to love, hold and cherish your families. And last, think about other words spoken by our Lord also, these words,

John 3:16-18

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

May the Lord be with those who have lost dads, husbands and sons to these tragedies.

As I was preparing to post today's thought, the news reported yet three more men in uniform who died over the night. Three members of the US military died when their C-130 crashed in Kuwait, may the Lord be with their families too.

May the Lord Jesus be with you and bless you this day.

14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:

15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.

16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;

As you read the next two verses, think about the words written here on these pages by Thinkin Gal, Jeremiah Jr, 2 Sheep and others who are dedicating themselves to the study of prophecy. And who have obviously been touched by and had the scales removed by the Lord Jesus.
17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:

Now, here comes the important part for those who are unsaved.
21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. God tells us that who shall ever call on the name of Jesus shall be saved. What better Christmas gift can you recieve than the gift of salvation, and all you have to do, is give to Jesus the Christmas gift of your free will.

The Lord Jesus, the Son of God, whose birthday we celebrate this month be with all who are believers and may He have compassion on the heathen that reads these words and let the holy Spirit take the scales from their eyes, the wax from their ears and the hardness from their hearts.

So, then what?

After the chief priest and his cronies, the scribes, sadducees and the pharisees had crucified the Son of God, did they just wash their hands of the whole matter and go away? Did they crawl back under the rock from which they and their father had crawled out from under?

Acts 2:1-13

1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. (Read Leviticus 23:15-22 and Deuteronomy 16:9-12)
2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. (House here means temple, like synagogue)

3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and It sat upon each of them.
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.

6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaean?
8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?
Turn to Genesis 11 and read verses 1-7, for in the above 3 verses, God has done just the opposite of what He did in Genesis 11:1-7. When God wants you to understand, He will take the scales from your eyes, the wax from your ears and the hardness from your heart. In His time and in His way.

9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,
10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,
11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?

13 Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine. There they are, the chief priest and his ilk are back, throwing cold water in the faces of baby believers, beware my friends, for the chief priest, his minions and his ilk lurk here today as well.

The Lord Jesus, the Son of God, whose birthday we celebrate this month be with all who are believers and may He have compassion on the heathen that reads these words and let the holy Spirit take the scales from their eyes, the wax from their ears and the hardness from their hearts.

What Psalm would you choose?

Think about America today, we have a government led by a man who has disgraced not only himself and his family but the office of the presidency as well. We have a military that has sworn to uphold the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, yet has sat by, taken orders from and groveled at the feet of a card carrying communist traitor, since he holds the title of Commander in Chief.

We have a congress wrought with communism and homosexuality a senate that cannot find the votes to stop absolute infanticide, one that has sold out every principal that a free people should hold dear.

For this Christmas season, what Psalm of David's would you pray for America?

So, what is Dr. Luke telling us?

Luke 2:11

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. ( KJV)

Just what is Dr. Luke telling us in verse 11? Was this only for those 2000 years ago? Or is there a message there for us today as well?

And. As we enter into this, the season of joy, the season in which we celebrate the birth of the Lord, what is your favorite Christmas scripture verse and why. Now, before some jump on me and tell me that Christmas is from the pagan holidays and that it was a compromise to get the heathens to become Catholics, forget it, look at it this way.

If you were to adopt a beautiful baby boy, and you were not sure just what day he was born on, but you knew it was sometime between September and March, would you not just pick a date and celebrate his birthday regardless of the accuracy of the date? You celebrate a birthday because you are delighted the person was born.

I know it has become nothing more than a crass commercial day for many, why I even heard a commercial put out by the Israeli tourist bureau using New Testament Scripture to get Christians to come to Israel for the millennium, but forget all that, let God sort that mess out (Revelation 20:11-14), let's you and I just start celebrating the birth of the King of kings, Lord of lords, God of gods.

And if we are wrong on the date, so what? After all, I would rather get a card a week or a month late rather than have no thought of my birthday at all. Wouldn't you?

So, what is your favorite Christmas Scripture verse and why?

The Lord Jesus, the only begotten son of the only Almighty and Everlasting and Living God be with all who believe on His name.

Where are you going to spend eternity? Are you sure? How do you know? What do you base that belief on?

For, we who are Saved, this time on earth is the closest we ever come to hell, but for those who reject the offer of the Lord and do not accept Jesus as their Lord, Saviour, Master and Creator, this time on earth is their heaven!

Come let us be reasonable...

Come, let us be reasonable...,

Come, let us be reasonable, let us reason together. Have you ever noticed who they are that speak those words? Think to yourself, have you ever heard an honorable man or woman utter those words? Do you find them in the word of God? No, they are not uttered by either God or honorable men and woman, they are spoken by those who wish you to compromise your values, honesty, virginity, morality and salvation, for with God, with honor, there is no compromise, there is no "Come let us be reasonable...".

With both God and men of honor, there is no compromise from the absolute truths, rules, percepts and values of God.

Bill clinton tells us to be reasonable about giving away our sovereignty as a nation. The republican party tells us to be reasonable and vote for their almost pro life candidate, after all, what's a few babies in the womb one way or another. The Chinese tell us to be reasonable, for what threat could a few of their troops being on our shores be?

But. What does God say about compromise and come let us be reasonable...?

From Deuteronomy 20:1-17

When thou goest out to battle against thine enemies, and seest horses, and chariots, and a people more than thou, be not afraid of them: for the LORD thy God is with thee, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. And it shall be, when ye are come nigh unto the battle, that the priest shall approach and speak unto the people, And shall say unto them, Hear, O Israel, ye approach this day unto battle against your enemies: let not your hearts faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because of them;

For the LORD your God is He that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you. And the officers shall speak unto the people, saying, What man is there that hath built a new house, and hath not dedicated it? Let him go and return to his house, lest he die in the battle, and another man dedicate it. And what man is he that hath planted a vineyard, and hath not yet eaten of it? let him also go and return unto his house, lest he die in the battle, and another man eat of it. And what man is there that hath betrothed a wife, and hath not taken her? Let him go and return unto his house, lest he die in the battle, and another man take her.

And the officers shall speak further unto the people, and they shall say, What man is there that is fearful and fainthearted? Let him go and return unto his house, lest his brethren's heart faint as well as his heart.

And it shall be, when the officers have made an end of speaking unto the people, that they shall make captains of the armies to lead the people. When thou comest nigh unto a city to fight against it, then proclaim peace unto it. And it shall be, if it make thee answer of peace, and open unto thee, then it shall be, that all the people that is found therein shall be tributaries unto thee, and they shall serve thee. And if it will make no peace with thee, but will make war against thee, then thou shalt besiege it:

And when Jesus, the LORD thy God hath delivered it into thine hands, thou shalt smite every male thereof with the edge of the sword: But the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all that is in the city, even all the spoil thereof, shalt thou take unto thyself; and thou shalt eat the spoil of thine enemies, which the LORD thy God hath given thee. Thus shalt thou do unto all the cities which are very far off from thee, which are not of the cities of these nations. But of the cities of these people, which Jesus, the LORD thy God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth: But thou shalt utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee:

God will not help us as a nation if we don't get back to utterly destroying evil. Abortion, pornography, homosexuality, treason...! With the Lord Jesus fighting for us, only a small number are needed to win, but for the Lord Jesus to be by our side, we must return to Him, not through compromise, but through absolute obedience to His word.

So, who is God?

So, who is God?

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

As I talk to people and read their writings, more and more often I hear and read the misconceptions they have about God. They act as if His Son's name is Jesus Christ, like Tom Smith or something, the sentiment seems to be that God and Jesus are just two men that happen to be God, as if by some chance of birth.

Balderdash!

Look again at Genesis 1:1

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Look at this; John 1:1-3

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2 The same was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.

Read it like this:
1. In the beginning was Jesus and Jesus was with God and Jesus was God.
2. Jesus was in the beginning with God.
3. All things were made by Jesus and without Jesus was nothing made.

Now stop and think for a moment about this God that some what to make into a man or whose powers some wish to deny. It never ceases to amaze me when, supposedly sensible and intelligent people say, "Oh, I believe in God, it's Jesus that I don't accept."

Hello, they are one in the same. Look at just two verses. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And, All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.

Think about that, everything in earth and in heaven was made by God, Jesus, not made by sending Angels down to Home Depot for a load of wood, a few nails and some roofing material, but by speaking them into existence. Jesus simply spoke and all things were created, including the dirt that He made you and me out of. When you speak, what do you create? Other than bad breath, nothing. And some want to limit this Almighty God, some want to tell Him, what part of Him they will or will not accept?

In the sales business, they have a saying or "let's get back to basics" I think we would do well to get back to basics when it comes to our understanding of God. As we approach this Christmas season, let us ponder He whose birthday we celebrate. Not Jesus the man, but Jesus God, God of all creation, Jesus, the God who created all things and without whom nothing was created.

The Lord Jesus, the King of kings, Lord of lords, God of gods be with you.

Be ye not unequally yoked

In Paul's second letter to the Corinthians, he tells us that we, Born Again believers, should not be yoked to heathens.

2 Corinthains 6:14

14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

Now many a liberal preacher would want you to believe that Paul was only talking about being married to a heathen and that we Born Again believers need not concern our selves with our everyday relationships, as long as we tried to marry a good Christian.

Poppy cock!

Do you think, for even one little moment that Paul was saying "Oh, ladies go to the abortionist to have your baby delivered." Or "Of course it's ok for you to do business with car thieves and mafia members." Of course not, Paul is telling you as a Born Again believer to associate with other Born Again believers, for what do you have in common with those who serve darkness or evil.

Read the whole chapter and see if you find any verse suggesting to you that Paul is only referring to husbands and wives.

2 Corinthians 6:1-18 1 We then, as workers together with Him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.

2 (For He saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

3 Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed:

4 But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,

5 In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings;

6 By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,

7 By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,

8 By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true;

9 As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed;

10 As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.

11 O ye Corinthians, our mouth is open unto you, our heart is enlarged.

12 Ye are not straitened in us, but ye are straitened in your own hearts.

13 Now for a recompence in the same, (I speak as unto my children,) be ye also enlarged.

14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

18 And I will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

To limit chapter six to just spouses is both foolish and blind. Does that mean that I would council a Born Again believer to not join in and fight a just cause, say to end abortion of restore freedom, side by side with heathens? No. But I would council the Christian to not trust the heathen nor turn their backs on them, for while they may both be fighting a common enemy, the heathen has more in common with the enemy than he does the Christian, for while the Born Again believer is a disciple of Christ, both the enemy and the heathen worship satan.

Raca Raca .... Fool Fool!

Oft times, we, who are Born Again Christians, are reminded that the Lord Jesus warned us against using the adjective fool. For we are reminded, didn't Jesus Himself tell us we could not call anyone a fool?

Matthew 5:22

22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

But, let us look at what the Lord said, who was He telling us, Born Again Christians, that we could not call fools? "That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause...". Jesus was warning us that we were not to call our brothers fool without just cause. So, what does that mean? Does it mean that we can't call anyone a fool unless we have just cause? For are not all men brothers?

Maybe to the liberal, "let me tell you what Jesus really meant crowd", but not to those who take the Word of God seriously, for Jesus also told us who our brothers are.

Matthew 12:48-50

48 But Jesus answered and said unto him that told Him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?

49 And Jesus stretched forth His hand toward His disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!

50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

Are heathens your brother and sisters? Well maybe in an earthly sense, since you may have a man or woman who share the same earthly parents with you, who are not saved, they would be your earthly brother and sister, but would not be your Christian brother or sister, therefore, they are not covered by Matthew 5:22.

Does that mean you should have nothing to do with heathens? Well, it does to me, I try to have as little to do with heathens as I can, for, Paul has taught us:

2 Corinthians 6:14-18
14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Does that mean that I would council a Born Again believer to not join in and fight for a just cause, say to end abortion of restore freedom, with heathens? No. But I would council the Christian to not trust the heathen nor turn his back on him, for while they may both be fighting a common enemy, the heathen has more in common with the enemy than he does the Christian, for both the enemy and the heathen worship satan.

Wanted married heterosexual Born Again, professing, evangelical Christians as scoutmasters.

Matthew 22:17-21

17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?

18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?

19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.

20 And Jesus saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?

21 They say unto Him, Caesar's. Then saith He unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.

Matthew 6:24

24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

What can we learn from these verse? Can we start to see the dangers of being a government approved 501 (c)3 church or organization? Would the Boy Scouts be under attack if they were not tax exempt? Let your preacher link Clinton and abortion and he'll have the IRS breathing down his back, threatening to take away his church's Tax Exempt status.

Perhaps it is time for a non 501(C)3 Christian church, like the Church for the American Christian Patriot to start a Non Tax Exempt Christian Scouting organization for Christian boys and girls lead by Christian heterosexual men for the boys and Christian heterosexual women for the girls. I guess we could call it American Christian scouts and American Christian scoutettes. Teach the kids God, Family and Country as well as the skills that Baden Powell "A Scout is reverent." taught. After all, Juliette Low patterned the Girl Guides (in England) after Baden Powell's organization "to provide healthful, character building activities for girls five to seventeen years of age."

Just a thought, but, I am open for Christian comment both from Born Again washed in the Blood of the Lamb,Christian men and women.

Psalm 2:1

In response to one of my comments on yesterdays daily Christian thought, "We need to know that if they invite a male politician to speak to them, it will be a Ron Paul and not a barney frank or john baldacci. We have to be sure that for a role model, other than their moms, the girls are taught about Helen Chenoweth, not olympia snowe and susie collins."

OWK said this. "If in fact you meant Congressman Ron Paul (which I believe you did), then you might be surprised to find out that he is a hardcore libertarian, and shares the same fundamental philosophy that I do. As such, his positions on Drug Laws, Homosexuality, etc, are identical to mine."

Yes, OWK, you do pay mouth service to many of the things Dr. Paul and I hold dear, such as the Constitution and our Constitutional Republican form of government, but that is where the similarities stop. For you see, Dr. Paul and I are committed to the Lord Jesus Christ, whom you have denied.

Dr. Paul and I agree that the values and principals, rule and laws we must get back to in this country are those of God the Creator, the God who sent His only begotten Son to die on the cross to be the perfect sacrifice for those of us who are willing to accept it. You, whose values do you follow? Those of a political party?

So, OWK, I will stay with that which I said yesterday, but would not extend the invitation to you. While I would have no hesitation in allowing a 12 year old boy from my church to spend the night in the woods accompanied by and under the guidance of Ron Paul, I would absolutely forbid his being left in your care.

You see OWK, Ron Paul is a man who lives to serve the Lord Jesus, the true and only begotten Son of God and for that reason, Ron Paul can be trusted with both a nation and it's youth. For he who fears and loves the Lord, will only do those things he knows to be pleasing to the Lord, he would in no way seek to do anything to harm even a hair on the head of a fellow believer or child of the Lord. While you speak very patriotically and claim allegiance to the constitution, you contradict your every thought and word by your denial of He who this nation was founded to serve.

For to this day, I have no idea what you base your writings on, for without Jesus, who do you base your allegiance on?

And, if I'm wrong about Dr. Paul and if he were to share your beliefs, what ever they might be, then I would prohibit him as well.

Just a thought, but, I am open for Christian comment both from Born Again washed in the Blood of the Lamb,Christian men and women.

The Lord Jesus be with you all.

I'd rather be Saved than president.

Thank God for letting me be just a dumb little ole country preacher instead of a wise and earthy heathen.

1 Corinthians 1:21-31

21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

29 That no flesh should glory in His presence.

30 But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

So, maybe we who are Saved are not as worldly and as smart as the Clinton's, Snowe's, Baldacci's, Allen's, Frank's, Gore's and Collin's of this world, but we are Saved and we are going to spend eternity with Jesus.

Thanksgiving day, 1999, the last Thanksgiving day of the millennium.

O praise the LORD, all of this nation: praise the Lord Jesus , all you, His people. For His merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endures for ever. Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD; for He is good: His mercy endures for ever.

Today, as you carve the turkey, watch the ball games and marvel at your families and friends. notice that everything you're looking at was made by the Lord, the table was fashioned out of materials created by the Lord, the family you so love, were all made, not by hand of man, but by the breath of God. That new car in the driveway might say made by GM, but the truth is, without God's having supplied the raw materials and the man power and brain power, there would be no car. If it were not for God, no car, no house, no turkey, no friends, no family, no air, no water, no planet.

Oh yes, thank your wife for cooking the turkey and bearing your children, thank your friends for bringing the wine and the mortgage company for financing the house, but spend some time focused on just who made it all possible.

John 1:1-3

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2 The same was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.

Who is the Word that John is talking about? The Lord Jesus.

May the Lord bless all of you and your families this Thanksgiving day. May He bless you as so many of you have blessed me, may He be with you and yours and may you, seek His face and His love.

What did Cain do wrong?

Genesis 4:1-11

1 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.

2 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
Here we see that Cain was a farmer and his brother Able was a shepard.

3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.

4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering:
In verses 3 & 4, we learn that Cain offered up vegetables to God as an offering, while Able offered up a live offering of his flocks. We further see in verse 4 that God liked the offering of Abel;

5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

6 And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?
In verses 5 and 6, we see that God did not like Cain's sacrifice and as a result, Cain was very upset.

7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.

9 And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?

10 And God said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.

11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;

So, what was it about Cain's offering that God so disliked, Cain certainly had to work harder to raise a crop that Abel did at just tending sheep, so why was God so displeased with Cain's gift, so displeased that Cain became so jealous that he killed Able?

And what was it about Abel's offering that so delighted the Creator?

Hint, the answer is in Genesis the third chapter.

Homosexuality is a sin and an affront to God the Creator!

How all to often we hear people try and justify their sin by claiming that it is not an offense to God. We hear them scream how with the first return of the Lord Jesus two thousand years ago, the law was ended, yet, where is their Scripture to support that? For the Lord Himself very clearly tells us in Matthew five, that that is a lie and untruth.

Matthew 5:17-20

17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

I think perhaps it is time to take a hard and politically incorrect look at Matthew 5:17-20 again and spend more time reading and obeying the book of Leviticus.

The absolute clearest writings on God's commandments for men and sex appear in Genesis and Leviticus:

Genesis 1:26-28

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27 So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.

28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

God created man and woman and told man and woman to go forth and reproduce, if homosexual behavior was acceptable to God, HE would have allowed them to reproduce, why do you think God does not allow to sodomites to reproduce? Or two lesbians?

Leviticus 20:13

13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

Read Genesis 18 and 19

For Jesus has told us that until all prophecy is fulfilled, not one letter or punctuation mark of the law is to change.

The Lord be with you and protect your children, for the two men that raped the thirteen year old boy to death were homosexuals known and trusted by his parents.

"...and he's not gay!"

Sometimes, when you look down from the pulpit, you can not help but picture the Lord looking at these same folks kin, two thousand years ago and while holding their heads in His hand as He gently shook them and looked them in the eye, saying "Hello, anyone in there?".

After one particularly strong sermon dealing with sin, homosexuality, abortion and today's Christian, while looking at the empty eyed stars and the glancing at the clock, I wrapped it up by saying, "Look, if you insist on doing business with the likes of McDonalds and Disney, at least be very careful with your children, for no longer can you assume that Disney and McDonalds employees look at you children as just children. Today, both companies have put morals, character and integrity aside and are not only hiring pro active homosexuals, they are both openly recruiting and protecting them!"

I went on to say, "Ladies, you can no longer just ask one of their employees to take your 3 year old son into the mens room when your husband isn't with you, men you can not continue to think it safe to ask one of their employees to keep and eye on your four year old daughter as she enters the ladies room alone, they man not think of them as children, but as prey."

After the service, a woman in her mid thirties approached me and said, "My sisters, cousins, next door neighbors sons step brother works at a McDonalds and he isn't gay!" "Hello, anyone in there?" I really wanted to ask her, "what is your husbands Free Republic screen name?", but I didn't.

Matthew 5:17-20

17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

I think perhaps it is time to take a hard politically incorrect look at Matthew 5:17-20 again and spend more time reading and obeying the book of Leviticus.

For Jesus has told us that until all prophecy is fulfilled, not one letter or punctuation mark of the law is to change. And for those who are betting on the old and oft watered down phrase, "Once Saved always Saved" well, perhaps you had best read Matthew 7:21-23, and start thinking, "Once really and truly Saved, always Saved!"

The Lord be with you and protect your children, for the two men that raped the thirteen year old boy to death were friends of the family.

To a thousand generations.

Psalms 105:1-8

1 O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon His name: make known His deeds among the people.

2 Sing unto Him, sing psalms unto Him: talk ye of all His wondrous works.

3 Glory ye in His holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.

4 Seek the LORD, and His strength: seek His face evermore.

5 Remember His marvelous works that HE hath done; His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth;

6 O ye seed of Abraham His servant, ye children of Jacob His chosen.

7 He is the LORD our God: His judgments are in all the earth.

8 He hath remembered His covenant for ever, the word which HE commanded to a thousand generations.

Deuteronomy 7:8-10

8 But because the LORD loved you, and because HE would keep the oath which HE had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.

9 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, HE is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love Him and keep His commandments to a thousand generations;

10 And repayeth them that hate Him to their face, to destroy them: HE will not be slack to him that hateth Him, HE will repay him to His face.

1 Chronicles 16:14-15

14 He is the LORD our God; His judgments are in all the earth.

15 Be ye mindful always of His covenant; the word which HE commanded to a thousand generations;

Every once in a while, I have someone tell me that they will simply wait around and see what happens after the Christians are Raptured. That if we disappear, then they will accept the Lord because then they will have seen with their own eyes.

Now, don't get me wrong here, I too think that the coming of the Lord could be before I even finish this thought. But, for those who are betting their salvation on seeing the sign of the Raptured church, you had best think about that 1000 generation statement above. For a 1000 generations could be 20,000 years, 40,000 years, or even 100,000 years and kids we are only in year 6,000 or so.

So, maybe you would be better off to play it safe and say yes to Jesus today.

America, all we need do is return to the Lord thy God.

America, all we need do is return to the Lord thy God. We as a nation can no longer afford to spit in the face of God, we can not continue to kill the babies that He gives us as gifts from Him to us. We can no longer stand around and ignore the persecution of Christians by radical left win Muslims in the Sudan, Egypt, Iraq and else where in the ungodly muslim world.

Fortunately, God has given us instructions for our safe return to Him.

Psalm 103: 1-11
1 Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
6 The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
7 He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.
8 The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
9 He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.
10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

All we need do is repent repent and repent. And remember that we are a Christian nation, not a melting pot, not a heathen or pagan nation, but a Christian nation. A nation that was founded in and on the Son of God, the Lord Jesus, who is the Messiah, the Christ and His teachings and principals.

The Lord God Jesus be with you all and may He give us just a bit more time. And may He rescue us from the heathens that He has placed over us to cause us to see the error of our ways. And may He help us to remove the four cornerstones this corrupt, degenert and defiled government, homosexuality, pornography, abortion and communism.

Or shall you just wait and see how much patience the Lord thy God has?

How long America, how long?

II Kings 2:23-24 23 And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.
24 And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.

How long America? How much longer do you think you can turn your backs to the cries of the persecuted church throughout the world? How many more Sudanese Christian girls are sold into slavery as concubines, how many more Christians in China have to be killed for their body parts, how many more babies ripped from the safety of their mothers wombs before you act America?

Matt Drudge finds the courage to walk away from the Fox network because he won't compromise his pro-life views, yet most Americans yawn at the thought of 1.5 million Sudanese Christians sold into slavery or killed. Preachers get looks of amazement for suggesting the thought of boycotting Disney, Pastors nationwide are looked at as if we have three heads when we suggest boycotting drug companies that use aborted babies to make their drugs, heaven forbid we should ask the ‘ladies' of the church to boycott Revlon or even suggest not doing business with doctors who do abortions. What will you do America when your pastors call for you to return this country to the Christian Republic that it was? Will you follow the word of God or the word of clinton, will you load your guns or turn them in? What will it take for you to repent and turn back to He who created you, all things and blessed you with this nation?

How much longer America, how much longer?

Do you think God created deserts? Not originally, the deserts came as the result of unrepentant sin, was Egypt a desert before Joseph? Was Sodom and Gomorrah a desert before sodomy? What about Arabia? Did the Lord make them deserts overnight?

How would a land become a desert, by flooding, burning and destruction of the top soil. In the past 70 years, how much of the US arable land has been lost through fires and floods and ‘natural disasters'?

Do you think God will continue to yawn?

Or shall you just wait and see how much patience the Lord thy God has?

Prayer, How, Who and For What?

That my brothers, sisters, and friends is a question that is at least nineteen hundred seventy two years old. For, around the year 27 AD or so, the hand picked disciples of the Lord asked Him that very question. And today, prayer is still misunderstood and underused.

Luke 11:1

1 And it came to pass, that, as Jesus was praying in a certain place, when He ceased, one of His disciples said unto Him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.

Matthew 6:9-13

9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

The answer the lord gave then is just as good today as it was back then. So, who should pray? Well, everyone should pray, but only one small and select group can pray to the Father through the Son, Born Again Christians, others can and should pray, but until they pray to the Lord for forgiveness, there is nothing in the Word of God that tells us that any of their prayers, Except for the sinners prayer, will be heard.

But, what should we, who are Born Again Christians, be praying for? First and foremost is our families. Praying for the salvation of our families salvation is the single most important praying we can do.

How?

Easy, for your children who live at home, when they are asleep, go into their rooms, either kneel beside their bed or stand over them and ask the Lord to help you raise them and ask Him to protect them from any and all dangers, ask Him to cause them to come to Him and that they should not be unevenly yoked. For your unsaved husband or wife, after he or she is asleep, roll over, put your hand on his or her head, shoulder or something and beseech the Lord's intervention in his or her life.

The only thing you can bring to heaven with you, is your family, pray hard, pray often and pray to the Father in the name of the Son.

The Lord Jesus be with you and bless all of you who are Saved.

Amen.

Daily thought for; Saturday and Sunday November 13th and 14th, 1999

Two men and a boy

As we look about, we see different men around us, there are boys who flee in mortal fear, men who serve the Lord with every fiber of their being and unfortunately men who fight the Lord and those who serve Him with every fiber of their body.

This weeks sermon mentions such a boy, well John Mark tells us of one such lad;
Mark 14:51-52
51 And there followed Jesus a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him:
52 And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.

But what about the two men? The real contrast between both men is here in:
2 Timothy 4:14-15
14 Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works:
15 Of whom be thou ware also; for he hath greatly withstood our words.

The speaker in Timothy is of course Paul, who gave his life completely and emphatically to the Lord, Paul, a man many of us will see in heaven. But what about Alexander?

When men of God curse workers of iniquity, they do it with very few words indeed. In verses 14&15, Paul tells Timothy that this Alexander character was a disruptor of the word, a man who delighted in twisting the teachings of Paul and rescuing for satan souls who were open to the Lords word through His bond servant Paul. Did Puls fall on his face and pray for Alexander? Maybe at some time, but not here, that's for sure. No, what Paul did was to curse Alexander, by saying "the Lord reward him according to his works:"

Pray to God that your sons are as the boy in Mark and that you are the man Paul and not the man Alexander. For a curse need not be ranting and raving, for as one so humble that he wouldn't even identify himself as the brother of the Lord,

Jude 1:1
1 I Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:
shows us in verse nine:
Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.

Get your bible and follow the word of the Lord, let the Lord and His word bless you. And let the Lord do with as He wishes those who are but Alexanders.

Shinar Plain, Middle East; The people of this fertile farming plain have refused to hear and abide by God and instead have followed the teachings and words of Nimrod, one of their foremost leaders and politicians, this Nimrod having come from one of, if not the most influential, prestigious and wealthy families in the area.

Nimrod has succeeded in convincing his friends, neighbors and subjects to follow him instead of God. And, I quote from the news; "Nimrod has persuaded them not to ascribe to God, as if it was through His means they were happy, but to believe that it was their own courage which procured this happiness.

He also gradually changed the government into tyranny, seeing no other way of turning men from the fear of God, but to bring them into constant dependence on his power. He also said that he would take his revenge on God, if God choose to drown the world again with another flood. For he would build a great tower too high for the waters to be able to reach! And that he would get even with God for destroying their forefathers in the flood."

Now the multitude were very ready to follow the determination and lead of Nimrod, for he taught them to consider it cowardice to submit to God.

Now where did this news report come from? Petey Jennings and the evening comedy hour? No. ABC' nightly report of politically correct Clinton legacy building by the mouse and his gang report? No. Jane Fonda's hubby down at CNN? No.

No, my friends this report was written two thousand years ago but the most prestigious and honest historian to ever report anything, Flavius Josephus.

So, for you tough guys out there, the ones that think they are to tough to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, your buying the same line of bull that clinton's forefather and worshipped of the same satan Nimrod shoved down his subjects' throats. And buying the same political rhetoric and political climate. In order to have his way and turn the people from the living God to the god satan, Nimrod had to turn the government to one of tyranny. Where is your buddy clinton taking us to get Christianity out of this government? And like Nimrod's subjects, you complain and moan and groan, not about the loss of values, virtues, character and the murder of babies trapped in the womb, but about taxes instead.

Think about it.

Time to choose. Christ or satan?



Today is Veterans Day, a day that we set aside to honor those brave men who made a choice, they choose to honor God and our heritage and fight to preserve this nation as one Christian nation under God.

Isn't it time for you to choose who you want to spend eternity with, those who fought to free this nation and again to end slavery, WW1 and WW2 or the sodomite, abortion worshiping pornography slime in the oval office.

Your choice Vets, George Washington or the current chairman of the joint chiefs and the little degenerate in the oval office that he serves and whose feet he grovels.



Acts 17:21-34

21 (For all the Athenians and strangers which were there spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.)

22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.

23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.

24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

25 Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;

26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.

30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

32 And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked: and others said, We will hear thee again of this matter.

33 So Paul departed from among them.

34 Howbeit certain men clave unto him, and believed: among the which was Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.

So, in the words of the venerable Apostle Paul, What's it going to be, Christ or satan? Who are you going to follow, Christ or satan? Who are you going to spend eternity with, Christ or satan? Who are you going to lead your family to, Christ or satan? Your choice, your destiny, your responsibility! For the Lord is not going to ask you about the weather when you stand before Him, He isn't going to discuss politics, clinton, or me with you, He is going to ask you one thing and only one thing. And that is "Did you accept My Son Jesus"? Psst, He already knows the answer.

Whose values?

As we approach the season to pick new public servants here in the USA, one theme we hear over and over again by candidates from dog catcher to president is that we must teach values, we must get back to values. Sounds great, makes a great bumper sticker and leaves the candidate sounding as if he or she is taking the high road.

But, whose values?

Clinton's? Is it the values of lying, cheating, adultery, homosexuality, abortion, going to war to save face, adultery, sexually abusing youngsters 1/3 his or her age, is that the values we want to continue as a country?

How about Bill Bradley's values? George Bush or heaven forbid, Al Gore's?

Do we want to follow in the footsteps of Janet Reno or Justice Ginsberg?

Whose values?

Let me make a suggestion; let us, instead of following the values of flawed, corrupt, degenerate creations, Let us instead follow the values of the Creator. Let us turn our backs on the likes of Olympia Snowe and her friend Susie Collins and let us instead turn to the Lord Jesus, who is the Messiah, the Christ.

John 1:1-10

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2 The Same was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.

4 In Him was life; and the life was the light of men.

5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through Him might believe.

8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not.

Who is the Word in verse one? Jesus!

Who is the Same in verse two? Jesus!

Who is the Him in verses three and four? Jesus!

Who is the Light in verse five? Jesus!

Who is the same in verse 7? John the Baptist!

Who is the he in verse eight? John. The Light? Jesus!

Who is the true Light in verse 9? Jesus!

Who is the HE and Him in verse ten? Jesus!

Not Clinton, not Snowe, not Ginsberg, not Angus the King or Jesse the corrupt body. Jesus!

So, whose values should we use? Jesus' and were do we find His values? His book, the bible, the Word of God.

Does clinton love you, would Cohen die for you, would you entrust your teenage daughter to the care of Olympia Snowe and or Susan Collins over night? Would you send your sons camping over night with Tom Allen and Barney Frank? Would you entrust your salvation to any of those listed above? Of course not, now change their names to Jesus. Now what is your answer? Is it not "Yes of course!"

So, why settle for any lesser values? Try to read the rules of man and you'll get sick, but the rules of God are but a book long. And the Lord Jesus boiled them all down to 28 words "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself."

Matthew 22:35-40

35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,

36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Contrast that to the values of Clinton, Baaldacci, Snowe, Collins, Frank, Cohen, Ginsberg, Bradley, Gore, Reno and the FBI, BATF, IRS and the rest who corrupt the public square with the rhetoric and behavior.

May the Lord Jesus, who is GOD, rescue us from those who have turned their backs on Him, amen.

Get up, Stand on your own two feet!

Personal Responsibility.

I want you to think for a moment. Think about this, you have just died and you're standing before the Lord. And He says to you, "why did you do such and such?" What will you tell Him?

Will you stand before the Lord and say "Well Lord, I was in church and the pastor told us that what you really meant was..." Or how about this "Well Lord, when I was reading my paraphrased easy to read bible study in three easy lessons, I understood that what You were really telling me was that ..."

I think that when the Lord stops laughing, HE is very likely to become very upset. Why do I say that? Why do I continue to preach that we are all personally responsible for our own salvation? Why do I continue to harp on the idea that you must read and study the bible on your own, that you must pray to the Spirit and ask Him to be your guide?

Because brothers, sisters and friends, God has told us that He will not accept excuses, that He will indeed hole each and every one of us responsible for our own actions and salvation.

Hebrews 9:27

27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

And what is this judgement? Is it a judgement before a jury of your peers? Not hardly, it is judgement before God Almighty Himself, in the person of His Son Jesus. Will excuses work?

Genesis 3:1-19

1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.

9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?

10 And Adam said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

11 And God said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?

God just asked the question. Here come the excuses;

12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.

13 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

Does God buy excuses?

14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;

19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

Trying to blame someone else didn't work six thousand years ago and it won't work today. Because God's word does not change. What He said then is for then and today and tomorrow.

Now, in closing, let me point out one little thing, look at verse 16. Do you see where the Lord God has, as part of the women's punishment, put her under her husband? Well, in some instances, perhaps, a wife may get away with a bit, since she is told to submit to her husbands authority. But, ladies, I think it might be safer to stay in prayer and ask the Holy Spirit for help with that.

I don't want to be rude, but who cares, ...



Let me ask you a question! When you read and study your bible, do you read and study looking to see what God has to say to you? Do you read God's word from the perspective of asking yourself, just what does this mean to me? Or do you look at the word of God and try to understand just what it is that God is telling you through His word?

All to often we hear folks telling us what Gods word means to them. I don't want to be rude, but who cares, I mean, who cares what they think Gods word means, what we should be focusing on is what God is telling us in His word.

Let me give you an example:

1 Corinthians 11:24-29

24 And when Jesus had given thanks, He brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.

27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.

29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.

Now, when you look at it from the perspective of what does this mean to me or what does this say to me, what you end up with is the liberal theology of taking communion strengthens you and you should do it to be closer to God.

But, if you read it from the perspective of what is God saying here? You understand that what we are being told here is that when we take communion, in remembrance of the Lord Jesus, that when we partake of the bread and the wine, we are to remember what He did, how He offered up His body and blood for us as the perfect and only acceptable blood and flesh sacrifice.

In verse 27 we see that for one to partake of the communion feast without first being worthy, that person is guilty of killing the Lord.

In verse 28 we are told to examine ourselves, to look into our own hearts and judge ourselves either worthy or unworthy to partake.

For in verse 29 we read "For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body." For he that eats and drinks unworthily, eats and drinks damnation, for not discerning the Lord's body.

So, when you enter some liberal churches, you are told that if you are a member, you qualify, in others, you are told that if you were born into that denomination you are worthy and still others claim that if you are baptized by that denomination you are worthy.

But, when you read it as "What is God telling us here?" then you see that you must judge yourself, to see if you are worthy to partake of the Lord's communion feast and that you are responsible for this judgement, for if you partake of it hastily or without being a part of His family according, not to man, but in God's word, you have just become part of the murderous thugs that killed Him and have eaten and drunken damnation.

You, and you alone are responsible to God for your salvation, you must not take the word of others, you must read, study and bring to salvation through the word of God, yourself. That is not to say that you should not continue to witness and pray for your unsaved kin, friends and even strangers, what it is to say is this, when you stand before God, you will be judged according to what you did, not what you have been told by others.

They and I will be judged according to what we preach and teach. Let not man be your guide, that is what the Holy Spirit is here to do. Let Him be your guide. Ask Him for His help, ask Him to help you understand. Don't let the corruption of the language and the secular thoughts of the world influence your bible study, empty your minds and hearts of what you think, and let the Lord through the Spirit teach and enlighten you.

For, do you really think you can learn anything about the word of God from the secular humanistic media or politicians? Do you think that you can learn anything about what God really means from someone who thinks they are smarter than God by telling you, as they read scripture, that what is written isn't really what God meant, but if you listen to him or her, they will tell you what God really meant to say?

May the Lord Jesus be with you and bless you this day.

Revelation 6:1-17

1 And I (John) saw when the Lamb (Jesus) open one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.

2 And I (John) saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. ( War, big time war, this is not the white horse the Lord comes back on, this is satan, the imposter, making like a white knight, but being himself, the great deceiver.)
3 And when He (Jesus) had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword. (War and more war.)
5 And when He (Jesus) had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, "A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine." (Famine, big time, a two pound loaf of bread for a day's wages, two loves of barley bread for a days wages and wine and oil too expensive to even bother with, only the very richest can afford the wine and oil. this first famine seems to be restricted to the poor and middle class, but not for long.)

No Jesus, No Peace!

Know Jesus, Know Peace!

Revelation 6:1-17

1 And I (John) saw when the Lamb (Jesus) open one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.

2 And I (John) saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. ( War, big time war)
3 And when He (Jesus) had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword. (War and more war.)
5 And when He (Jesus) had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, "A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine." (Famine, big time, a loaf of bread for a day's wages, two loves of barley bread for a days wages and wine and oil too expensive to even bother with.)

Want another reason why the Church for the American Christian Patriot is not a 501(c) 3 church? "The Clinton administration and it's use of force and federal tax agents against Christians, makes it very clear that no Christian can vote for any candidate who will continue the Clinton administrations deceitful and corrupt policies. Christians must put God first, family second and country third. They must vote for candidates putting forth God's values, not mans values. And that in itself precludes most of the democrats and republicans currently in office and seeking office."

Has God raised His arm against the USA?

Let me ask you a question, do you think God has started venting His wrath against these United States yet? What do you base that on? Look here:

Psalm 78:59-63
59 When God heard this, He was wroth, and greatly abhorred Israel:
60 So that He forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent which He placed among men;
61 And delivered his strength into captivity, and his glory into the enemy's hand.
62 He gave His people over also unto the sword; and was wroth with His inheritance.
63 The fire consumed their young men; and their maidens were not given to marriage.

Now leading up to verse 59, His people had turned from Him and His word, they were worshiping false gods and bending His words to meet their needs instead of bending themselves to meet His words. Kind of like our worship of materialistic things and our bending and twisting His word to make the sins of infanticide in the womb and homosexuality acceptable.

Let's rephrase 59 to 63 a bit,
59 When God heard this, He was wroth, and greatly abhorred the USA:
60 So that He left the churches, the houses which He had builded and placed among His men so that they could come together with Him;
61 And delivered the army into the captivity of the UN and placed a communist as their commander and chief, and their glory into the enemy's hand, by having them train and arm their enemies and be lead by foreign powers.
62 He gave His people over to federal police agencies for to be killed and to the federal tax collectors for to be perverted; and was wroth with His peoples children, for the decedents of those who fought and died for this land that He had given them had turned from Him.
63 Aids, diseases, wars in foreign places and moral degeneracy consumed their young men; and their maidens were not given to marriage, but instead became liberated and gave to all who asked as casually as men once shook hands, so there was no longer any reason to marry them.

Are we starting to see the hand of the Lord turn against us? We murder our babies before they are born, we kill our old folk to get them out of the way, we teach the children lucky enough to be born that they are the descendants of pond scum and monkeys and then we act surprised when they act like that which we tell them they are descended.

We have a communist in the office of the presidency, we send our young women off to fight our battles and protect our streets, we tell our young men that it is cool to be sodomized and our daughters that they would rather cuddle to a woman and raise dogs and cats rather than get married, have children and be a mother.

We have become a nation that sends it's secret police off to kill mothers while they nurse their babies, Christians because the satan worshiper in the oval office calls them a cult, a nation ...

Well, if the weather we are having and things that are happening to us as a nation now are not God's wrath, then we had best turn back to the Lord our God now, for if this isn't His wrath, then I shudder to think what His wrath will be like. For, if putting us under the control of a communist as president doesn't fulfill verses 61 and 62, that would only mean that something even worse than having Clinton as president will happen. That in itself is a good reason for coming to the Lord, getting Saved and asking Him to forgive us while we change our ways.

And this demonstrates why the Church for the American Christian Patriot is not a 501(c) 3 church.

A mothers love...

Yesterday, we looked at the almost unbelievable faith and obedience of Abraham and his son Isaac, today, let us think about the love of a mother, a love so intense that she not only risked her life, she went in and begged her husband, while he was being entertained let us say, by a much younger woman.

I King 1:15-21

15 And Bathsheba went in unto the king into the chamber: and the king was very old; and Abishag the Shunammite ministered unto the king. (Abishag, from I King 1:1-4 Now king David was old and stricken in years; and they covered him with clothes, but he got no heat. Wherefore his servants said unto him, Let there be sought for my lord the king a young virgin: and let her stand before the king, and let her cherish him, and let her lie in thy bosom, that my lord the king may get heat. So they sought for a fair damsel throughout all the coasts of Israel, and found Abishag a Shunammite, and brought her to the king. And the damsel was very fair, and cherished the king, and ministered to him: but the king knew her not.)

16 And Bathsheba bowed, and did obeisance unto the king. And the king said, What wouldest thou? (Here, Bathsheba, comes into the bedroom of David, her husband, the father of her son Solomon, while he is being warmed and ministered to by this young girl, puts her self on the ground and literally begs David.)

17 And she said unto him, My lord, thou swarest by the LORD thy God unto thine handmaid, saying, Assuredly Solomon thy son shall reign after me, and he shall sit upon my throne.
18 And now, behold, Adonijah reigneth; and now, my lord the king, thou knowest it not:
19 And he hath slain oxen and fat cattle and sheep in abundance, and hath called all the sons of the king, and Abiathar the priest, and Joab the captain of the host: but Solomon thy servant hath he not called.
20 And thou, my lord, O king, the eyes of all Israel are upon thee, that thou shouldest tell them who shall sit on the throne of my lord the king after him.
21 Otherwise it shall come to pass, when my lord the king shall sleep with his fathers, that I and my son Solomon shall be counted offenders. (Or, otherwise, David, when you die, Solomon will be put to death.)

Why did Bathsheba do this, why did she go and grovel at the feet of her husband while he was with a younger woman? Not to be queen, but to save the life of her son. She knew that if David died before he said anything or said, well, he, Adonijah, is my son also, so let him reign, that she would also die, for now she had spoken out against Adonijah. Yet, she so loved her son, that she put her life on the line for him.

The obedient son...

Genesis 22:1-13 1 And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am.
2 And God said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.
3 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.
4 Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.
5 And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you.
6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.
7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?
8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.
9 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.
10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.
11 And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.
12 And the angel of the LORD said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.
13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.

Talk about faith, Abraham, has so much faith, love, respect and fear of the Lord God that he is willing to sacrifice his only son, now, I now some of you might be saying, "Well what about the illegitimate son by Hagar the Egyptian slave girl? Look at verse two again, And God said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest ... In our humble eyes Hagar's son is Abrahams son, but in God's eyes, only Isaac is Abrahams son. One of these days we will look at what is in store for Hagar's sons decedents, hint, it isn't pretty. If your a muslim, you really need to get Born Again immediately. For Hagar's illegitimate little boy is none other than Esau, the father of the sons of edom.

But, if it is possible, Isaac showed even more faith, look, Isaac is about 14 years old, Abraham is about 114 years old, now, Isaac isn't stupid, he knows they haven't brought anything to sacrifice, and Abraham isn't strong enough to wrestle this youngster onto the alter and tie him down, no, Isaac got on the wood voluntarily, Isaac was willing to be the sacrifice if that's what his father and God wanted. No that is not only a boy with faith, that is one obedient son.

And this is a time when we in Maine, must have the faith of Isaac, for the people of Maine have decided to side with the media, the child killers, the Snowes and the Collins and continue to sanction the horrific practice of partial birth abortion. God forgive us for not fighting harder.

...thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are...

Matthew 6:1-8

1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. Be careful not to wave that fifty around for all to see be careful not to take and lay that hundred across the top with a third hanging out for all to see.

2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. Don't be like the hypocrites, just put your offering in without fan fare and pray that no one sees it for otherwise, if men come and tell you how generous you are, you have your reward If, on the other hand, you're offering not looking for the praise of men but instead to further the work of the Lord through your local church, then your reward is in heaven given to you by your Father in heaven.

3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:

4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. Notice, the Lord is telling you again, don't do your alms, or offerings to be seen by men, do it for the glory of God, not your glory. You know these people that make large donations to have wings in hospitals named after them? Well, it would have been better for them to take the tax hit and to have simply donated in the name of the Lord.

5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. Notice here, the Lord is making the comparison to the ones who stand up and make a speech out of their prayer, I would think that most of you have heard that kind of prayer once or twice in your lives. He is not telling you not to go to church, He is not telling you that you should not publicly pray in church for important needs like those of a sick family member. What the Lord is telling us here is to not be hypocritical in our praying, to not be making speeches in our praying. It is sometimes difficult to explain, but look at it as if prayer is a conversation with God..

When you, as His son or daughter comes to Him in prayer, it is somewhat like your going to your earthly parents with a request when you were a child. You can and indeed should pray with others in your church, that is like you and your brothers and sisters going to your earthly parents when you were children. But, always go with respect and don't go just to impress your brothers and sisters, but to go with real needs with the brethren. Look at:

Matt 18:19-20

19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. So, the Lord isn't telling us not to go to church, He isn't telling us not to pray in public, He is telling us to pray with respect, to pray for real things, not just to make speeches, pray for those things which you know will not offend the Lord. So, let us read further.

6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

Verses 6&7 really need only a bit of explaining, this has to do with personal prayer, verse six, the Lord knew that some of us pray best in private, so, He has here told us that, for those who aren't comfortable praying even respectfully in church and out loud, that for us, it is absolutely acceptable to go into your room, down the cellar, out to the garage, or parked under the stars in your pickup, and to bare your heart to the Lord your God. You can cry, you can yell, you can beg, or you can simply open your arms and be held, while you just thank Him for all He has done. But, verse 7, don't be repetitious, don't sit there and say the same canned prayer over and over again. Think about this, what kind of person do you have to keep repeating the same things over and over again too, not a really bright one huh. Well, the Lord your God is smart enough to get it the first time. For look at what Jesus calls those who do pray repetitiously, heathens.



8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of. A simple warning by the Lord, don't be like them, for the Father knows what things you need before you even ask, if He knows what I need, why do I have to ask? I don't know, but I do know that you have to ask. As you read the gospels and the miracles that the Lord performed, one thing keeps coming out and that something is that in each time Jesus had to be asked or the person had to say yes to the question before the Lord healed them.

Two examples:

Yes, "Oh Lord God in heaven, please don't let me son die."

No, "Oh God, please please please let me have that new BMW, please, I'll never ask for anything again, oh just let me have that new Beemer, ah, Lord a red one please"

Yes "Lord, please help us end abortion."

No, "get rid of clinton God, get rid of clinton God, get rid of clinton God, get rid of clinton God, get rid of clinton God, get rid of clinton God, get rid of clinton God, get rid of clinton God, get rid of clinton God, get rid of clinton God, get rid of clinton God,."

Yes, slip the ten in a plain envelope and put it in the collection plate as low key as possible.

No, take the ten, hold it up waiting for the plate and then cough so that all around will look and see your generosity.

No, stay home and never go to church.

Yes, join a good local bible preaching church. Denominational or non denominational as long as it is bible based. And take communion as seriously as He whose blood and flesh you are to partake of did.

Men, when it comes to your family, Are you a Noah or ...

Genesis 6:5-8
5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6 And it repented the LORD that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart.

7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.
10 And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

Genesis 7:1
1 And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before Me in this generation.

Genesis 7:5-7
5 And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him.
6 And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.
7 And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.

Noah did what was right in the sight of the Lord, Noah prayed and sacrificed to God and God saved not just Noah, but Noah, his wife, his sons and his sons wives.

Guys, you can lead your family to salvation through the Lord. First, get right with the Lord yourself and then through prayer and His word, you can take your family with you.

But Lord, why have so many of my little friends being killed?

What did they do Lord?
Why do so many people hate us Lord?

How long, O Lord, holy and true, how long will you wait to judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

Who does Jesus tell us to love?

John 13:21-38 21 When Jesus had thus said, He was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.
22 Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom He, the Lord, spake.
23 Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved, John.
24 Simon Peter therefore beckoned to John, that he should ask Jesus, who it should be of whom the Lord spake.
25 John then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto Him, Lord, who is it?
26 Jesus answered, he it is, to whom I shall give a sop,( a sop is a piece of bread dipped in gravy) when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.
27 And after the sop Satan entered into Judas Iscariot. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly. (Notice, that satan did not enter into Judas till the Lord had given him permission, after the Lord had given Judas the sop. This is important, for some teach and think that Jesus is but an arch angel, like Michael and satan.)
28 Now no man at the table knew for what intent Jesus spake this unto Judas Iscariot.
29 For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.

30 He, Judas, then having received the sop went immediately out: and it was night.
31 Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in Him.
32 If God be glorified in Him, God shall also glorify Him in Himself, and shall straightway glorify Him. (When you read verse 32 carefully, you'll see that Jesus is very clearly telling us that He and the Father are one)

33 Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you. (Now read this next verse very carefully and you will see who the Lord is commanding you, as a Born Again Christian, to love.)
34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. (That you love one another, read the Lord's prayer to the Father in John 17, look carefully at verses 9 and 20.)

35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
36 Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.
(Here Jesus is clearly telling Peter that right now, Peter can not go with the Lord, he can not die right now, but, He tells Peter, you most surley will follow me to the cross later, which Peter did. And then Peter, the Lord says, you too will be with me in heaven.)

There is a lot of confusion about the Lord, in the very near future, God willing, we are going to look at the Jesus that comes back, we are going to look at just what does, not according to man, nor preachers with itchy ears, but according to the Word of God what happens to abortionist, crooked politicians, crooked cops, murders and a bunch of others, when the Lord Jesus comes.

We are often faced with the secular world question of, what would Jesus do? And we try to be nice and politically correct and say, well He would love and be kind and forgive and show no signs of violence. Garbage. When the Lord comes Back, you don't want to be any where around. The hook has been baited, those with the feel good theology are about to get a lesson or two on the Book of Revelation, the second coming of the Lord Jesus, the Son of the most High God. Not as the sacrificial Lamb, but as the Warrior King!

Jump ahead, get on your knees and ask the Lord to help you understand the Book of Revelation, use either the KJV or the New American Standard Version.

Let us pray.

For today's thought, I would like to tell you a little story:

While the thought is for Wednesday, October 27th, 1999, it is 2:06 PM EST on the 26th. Just about a half hour ago, I turned my computer of in a rage, I had read a post about a hospital by the name of Christ hospital, an insult to the Lord for sure, for this is the notorious abortion hospital that, not content to slaughter babies in the first six months, specializes in third trimester abortions where they deliver the baby completely and then put the little guy in pan of water and let him or her drown.

I was so mad, I went out, started the lawn mower and started cutting my lawn, keep in mind, I live in Maine, we have no lawns in October in Maine, what we have is frost at best. But anyhow, after about twenty minutes or so, I turned it off, came inside, and found myself with a shortness of breath and a tight chest. My first thought was, I had better call my doctor, poor guy lives right around the corner, is Born Again and really seems to have determined that his ministry in life is to keep me alive, and have him check me out, I shouldn't be out of breath like this. But, then. I looked up to heaven, closed my eyes and said "Lord, if you want me to live, so be it, but, I would rather be with You. I'm not calling Allen, if you want me to stay here, well, you fix me. Amen"

Well, I'm still here, so I guess He doesn't want me quite yet. But it did get me to thinking, some of you in Texas could probably smell the burning. It got me thinking of how at least once a day, I read a post by a Freeper and find myself praying for that persons salvation, health or safety. How often I get an email from a Freeper asking for prayer for him or a family member or a friend or even his or her church. How, like yesterday, a friend is missing and we call out for prayer, hoping that every Christian in the Freeper family will see it and respond.

And that is what we should do when we or a family member are sick, down or in trouble. When we read John the 17th chapter, we see that the Lord turned to prayer for His family then,
John 17:9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
And His family now,
John 17:20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

So, today, I'm going to ask this, would those of you who are Born Again Christians, please join a prayer partnership list with me? I will neither publish the list nor spam you with it. I will simply forward Freeper prayer request to you so that you can join with me in praying for other Freepers and their families.

Let us use the
Jesus.let.me.serve.Thee@Christianpatriot.com
address.

For, are we not told by the Lord and the Apostles to pray without ceasing, to pray to the Father in His name so that the Father can grant our prayers? And,
Matthew 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

Please join, but, only if you are a Born Again Christian, but, regardless of whether you are Born Again or not, if you are reading this message on www.FreeRepublic.com or Praise the Lord, and are in need of prayer, you are a member of the family and we will pray for you, so email your prayer request and know that prayers will be made for you or those you are asking prayer for. But, there are some things w. who will be praying, need to know if you are asking for prayer.

One, is the person we are praying for Saved?

Two, can I release yours and their name?

Three, exactly what is the prayer request?

Four, if the person is in the hospital, can we send them email cards through your email address?

That's it, for after all, are we not one family? Are there any who read or post on FreeRepublic, that you would rather see in hell? Is there any that you would not buy a cup of coffee or give a cup of water to?

Lord please join with us and hear our praying for those who are ill or lost in our family, Lord thank you.
Amen.

Lazarus, come forth.

Mary and Martha had a brother named Lazarus, Lazarus had been ill and had died, the Lord along with His disciples had waited four days before going to see Mary, Martha and Lazarus.

John 11:21-43 21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother would not have died.
22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever You wilt ask of God, God will give it Thee.
23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.
24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.
28 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.
29 As soon as Mary heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto the Lord Jesus.
30 Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met Him.
31 The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there.
32 Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw Him, she fell down at His feet, saying unto Him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, He groaned in the spirit, and was troubled,
34 And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.
35 Jesus wept.
36 Then said the Jews, Behold how He loved him!
37 And some of them said, Could not this Man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?
38 Jesus therefore again groaning in Himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.
39 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto Him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.
40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
41&42 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up His eyes, and said, Father, I thank Thee that thou hast heard me.
And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that Thou hast sent me.
43 And when Jesus thus had spoken, He cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

And Jesus cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. Did you ever ask yourself why the Lord called Lazarus by name. Why didn't He just say, come forth? I think it was probably because ever dead person in the grave yard would have come forth. People dead two hundred years would have been getting up and walking out of their tombs so the Lord called Lazarus by name. It is not everyone that Jesus will be calling to Himself, only those whose names He knows and are written in His book.

Is your name written in His book? Are you sure? What do you base that on?

For one day, Jesus will call all those who have accepted His gift of salvation, not by works, but by grace, and have become Born Again Christians. And in the words of our fellow saint, John, "...Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen."

Christian Brotherhood

We often hear the term, Christian brotherhood, but, how often do we think about it or practice it. For days ago, I asked Thinkin'Gal and Parrots Up to stand in for me for four days so that I could get a bit of rest. Both, put their own lives on hold and found the time to both say yes and write absolutely excellent thoughts. That my brothers and sisters in the Lord is Christian Brotherhood.

I don't know if I have the words to express my thanks to them, but I do know this, both the Lord and I know how tired I was and both He and I know how badly I needed a rest and He knows how happy I was to have both Parrots Up and Thinkin' Gal standing in for me. And I know that He will not be at either a los for words or a lose for rewards for both of them for what they did to help one of His least.

For the Lord Jesus has told us:

Matthew 25:34-40
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Thank you my brother, thank you my sister. And may the Lord our God bless you both abundantly.

Jesus said in Luke 11:17 "... Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth."

God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.

I, therefore, appeal to you, who are the Born Again brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought.

My brothers, some within the family have told me that there are quarrels among you.

What I mean is this: One of you says, "I follow Paul"; another, "I follow the pope"; another, "I follow my conscience"; still another, "I follow Christ."

Is Christ divided?
Was I crucified for you?
Was the pope or any man, other than Jesus, if it be legal to call Him a man, since He is God, crucified for you?
Were you crucified for me?
Were you baptized into the name of Paul, or John, or Dan, or Harry?

I am thankful that I did not baptize any of you, so none can say that you were baptized into my name.

Do we not have enough enemies within the heathen camp? Must we fight within ourselves? Let the Baptist take the Pentecostal to lunch, let the Reform Lutheran take the Evangelical Catholic to hear the Continentals.

May the Lord, Jesus, the Son of the most high living God be with us all, may He touch our hearts and loving help us and teach us to love our brothers and sisters, for as He has taught us;

Matthew 12:48-50
48 But Jesus answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? 49 And the Lord stretched forth His hand toward His disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! 50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

In the words of Batman, "Wham Bam, Socko"

It has been suggested by many a liberal theologian, that if Jesus was walking amongst us today, He would never use any violence against an abortion clinic, that He wouldn't protest or get upset, He would simply try to reason with the cowardly murders and infanticidal maniacs carrying their trapped babies in to be murdered to satisfy the blood lust of their god.

I beg to disagree. For the gospels of Matthew and Mark paint a more realistic picture of how the Lord would deal with the baby killing cowards in the abortion business.

Matthew 21:12-15
12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, "Wham Bam, Socko"
13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.
14 And the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple; and Jesus healed them.
15 And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that Jesus did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the Son of David; they were sore displeased. (I think the word would be envious, jelous, hateful.)

And in:

Mark 11:15-18
15 And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;"Wham Bam, Socko".
16 And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.
17 And He taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.
18 And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy Jesus: for they feared Him, because all the people was astonished at His doctrine.

Moneychangers, abortionist, same blood line, same destination. Scribes and Pharisees and the chief priest, liberal itchy ear preachers, same blood line, same destination.

No my friends, Jesus would not sit on the sidelines and watch. No, as in the temples, Jesus would cleanse the abortion industry as well, "Wham Bam, Socko".

And in the words of my dear brother and fellow saint, John "... Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen."

Friends, have faith, believe on the Lord Jesus. And take action, cleanse your sins by washing yourself in His blood. How? Get on your knees and ask the Lord to forgive you, acknowledge that you are unworthy, we all are you know. Tell Him you want to thank Him for what He did on the cross for you, if you were the only person on earth, He would have still gone to the cross, just for you. And then tell Him how much of mess you have made of your own life and ask Him to take over your life and invite Him into your heart. Do that seriously and you'll now your Saved, because the Lord will tell you what to do after that.

"I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine."

Who are you following? Are you part of the flock? Does the Good Shepherd know your name? Do you know His voice?

John 10:1-16 1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. Jesus enters in trough the door of our hearts, we instinctively know He is the son of God and our redeemer. We, who are not afraid, instinctively trust in and believe on Him.
4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And when the Lord leads, we instinctively and happily follow Him.
5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. Satan and his minions and ilk, have to drive us, for we will not follow them out of love.
6 This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.
7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.

False gods and cult leaders run from danger and order you to put your life on the line for them, but Jesus, the good shepherd, gave His life for His sheep.
Are you one of His sheep?

13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.

Think about this for a moment, president clinton sends young men and women off to die and kill to keep his sins off the front pages, while Jesus, the Son of the living God, the Messiah, the creator of all things, went up on the cross and let Himself be crucified so that we wouldn't have to die. Yet some still insist on following clinton and his like, while ignoring the Lord and refusing His free and eternal gift of salvation.

16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

It's time to bring out the big guns against abortionist and abortion clinics!

Get your .44 auto mag at Wal Mart for $4.95

That's right, better and more powerful than any gun in yours or the government's arsenal. And it's available at your neighborhood Wal Mart for only $4.95, the Holy Word of God, the Bible. Let's look at just one round in the chamber of God's word.

Why do I say God's word is a weapon, look at Psalm 64. This Psalm was written by David, David the warrior king, the David that slew Goliath when he was but 14 years old or so. David, the king with the largest most powerful, best trained and most victorious army that Israel had ever or has ever fielded. Yet, this David, time and time again turned away from his army and to the Lord in prayer when he was overwhelmed and unable to win using his army.

We can learn a lot from David, for there are times when we need to let the Lord do the fighting.

Psalm 64:1-10
1 Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity: (In the first two verses, David has called upon the Lord and asked hide him.)
3 Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words:
4 That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
5 They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?
6 They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep. (In verses 3-6, David explains to the Lord that his enemies are not warriors, but cowards who slink around behind his back and try to slay him with words, sowing discontent.) Kind of like abortionist today. Cowards. Rotten little cowards that kill the most defenseless of all living things on earth, babies in the womb. These cowardly killers, have not the courage to go after even two year old children but must satisfy their blood lust and desire to prove themselves by killing little tiny babies captured and trapped in the womb.
7 But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.
8 So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all that see them shall flee away. (Here David is suggesting to God what he, David, would like to see done to the cowardly little gossips that plagued him, David, back then.)
9 And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing.
10 The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory. (Here David is telling God that if God will do something so miraculous to destroy his enemies, all will give praise and glory to God, for they will know that those works of destruction could not have come by man.)

My pro-life Born Again Christian brothers and sisters, we must learn from David. Let us stop praying for the Lord to touch the heart of the abortionist and the woman whose womb the baby is trapped in. But pray instead to God to spare the baby's life. Let the Lord do whatever He wants to, don't tie His hands by asking for salvation or softening of the heart of the abortionist and the female taking the baby to his or her death, pray to God that He will do whatever He has to do to save the baby from being murdered. If that means the Lord has to destroy the abortionist, well, the abortionist made his choice. If that means destroying the female, so be it, for she too has made her choice. But, the baby, the baby is the only innocent one in the crowd, it is the baby that needs and deserves God's help. No longer will I pray for God to go easy on abortionist or biological test tubes that are bringing their babies to abortionist to be slaughtered.

From here on out, my prayer will be Lord God, save that baby. Lord that baby did nothing to be worthy of death. Lord God, please do what ever you have to do to save the baby. Lord God do to those who wish to destroy that baby what you need to do to stop them from killing that baby, for you Lord God have tied our hands, you have told us to turn to You, I pray to Thee Lord God that Thou would do it in such a manner that all men tremble at the knowledge that it was You who stopped the murder, so that all men give glory, praise and fear to You Lord God and the baby lives. For only You Lord God above have the power to stop these murderous, child killing cowards from continuing their acts of vengeance against You, Your Son, the Holy Spirit and the little creation within the womb.

Stop them Lord God, stop them before they murder anymore. Let not these cowards continue to destroy that which You have made in Your own image, let not these cowards take one more breathe of Your clean air. Destroy them oh Lord God before they destroy any more of Your most innocent of all creations. Amen

One God and only one God!

Take a moment and think about He who created you and all things. Does He ask that much? No, not much at all, not any more than you are or should be asking from your kids.

Exodus 20:1-7
1 And God spake all these words, saying,
2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Please note: the words in red are exact quotes of the Lord taken from the authorized version of the Holy Word of God, the 1611 King James Version.

Thank you Lord, amen!

Faith and action.

We need to have the faith of a blind man and take the actions of a leper. We need to follow Jesus. We need to stop worrying about Clinton, the boss at work or even what our families and friends think. We need to declare that Jesus is King. Jesus is Lord of lords, King of kings and that it is Him and only Him we serve.

John 9:1-41
1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

Look at the faith these men had in God, they didn't ask the Lord what kind of illness this blind man had or what kind of accident he may have had when he was younger, no they asked the Lord, ‘Who sinned Lord, him or his parents that God blinded him?'

And look in verse four at the Lord's answer, He doesn't treat them as if that was a stupid question, no, He in turn tells them that he, the blind man, is not blind because of any ones sin, he is blind so that, He, Jesus, might do a miracle in front of them and the jews.

4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

Now do you see that in verse five, the Lord says, that He is the light of the world and that light will not always be here. Well look at:

II Thessalonians 2:7-8
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

Verses 7&8: could read like this: for evil is already at work, only God, who now lets it happen will continue to let it happen until He, God leaves earth and goes back to heaven. (We call it Rapture or the Gathering)
8: And when that happens the devil will be revealed and God will come back and destroy him. Look;

Revelation 19:11-21 11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns; and He had a name written, that no man knew, but He Himself.
13 And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called The Word of God.
Read John 1 verses 1-3
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And He hath on His vesture and on His thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of Him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of His mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

OK, back to John;

6 When Jesus had thus spoken, He spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,
7 And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.

Now notice in verse 7, the man had to go to the pool and wash; but look also at:

II Kings 5:9-10 & 14
9 So Naaman came with his horses and with his chariot, and stood at the door of the house of Elisha.
10 And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, saying, Go and wash in Jordan seven times, and thy flesh shall come again to thee, and thou shalt be clean.
14 Then went he down, and dipped himself seven times in Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God: and his flesh came again like unto the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.

See, faith and action are needed.

8 The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
9 Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but, he who had been blind said, I am he.
10 Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?
11 He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.

See, the blind man had faith and he took actions and he recieved his sight, Naaman, went down to the river, dipped seven times and was clean of the leprosy. Faith and action.

12 Then said they unto him, Where is He? He said, I know not.
13 They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.

14 And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes. (Oops, the Lord did again, He did a good miracle on the sabbath day, boy are those big shots in the temple going to be mad at Him.)

15 Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see.
16 Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because He keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.
(Note, they are talking about Jesus here.)

17 They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of Jesus, that He hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
18 But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight.
19 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? How then doth he now see?
20 His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:
21 But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.
22 These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that Jesus was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.
23 Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.

24 Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man, Jesus, is a sinner.
25 He answered and said, Whether He be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
26 Then said they to him again, What did He to thee? how opened He thine eyes?
27 He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be His disciples?
28 Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art His disciple; but we are Moses' disciples.
29 We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence He is.
30 The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence He is, and yet He hath opened mine eyes.
31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
32 Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. 33 If this man were not of God, He could do nothing.

34 They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.

35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when He had found him, He said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?
36 He answered and said, Who is He, Lord, that I might believe on Him?
37 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen Him, and it is He that talketh with thee.

38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped Him.

39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.

40 And some of the Pharisees which were with Jesus heard these words, and said unto Him, Are we blind also?
41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.
(Jesus said to them, if you were blind, if you hadn't read the law and the prophets, if you didn't claim to know so much, you might be saved, but because you claim to know so much that you have rejected me, your sin remains.

Friends, have faith, believe on the Lord Jesus. And take action, cleanse your sins by washing yourself in His blood. How? Get on your knees and ask the Lord to forgive you, acknowledge that you are unworthy, we all are you know. Tell Him you want to thank Him for what He did on the cross for you, if you were the only person on earth, He would have still gone to the cross, just for you. And then tell Him how much of mess you have made of your own life and ask Him to take over your life and invite Him into your heart. Do that seriously and you'll now your Saved, because the Lord will tell you what to do after that.

Let, I pray, the Lord Jesus be with you and yours thorughout this week. I pray that He will bless you and yours and that HE will bless those who bless you and yours. amen



May our Lord Jesus, the Messiah, the Son of God, bless you and protect you all, may He be with you and help you through your weeks and years ahead, may He listen to you and respond in kind.

Crucify him, crucify him, kill them.



Even today, as you sit at your computer reading this thought, Christians around the world and right here in the United States are sitting in prisons. There only crime being, there faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Oh, the Chinese won't put on the charge sheet, arrested for being a follower of Jesus the Christ, nor will the clinton lackeys in the fbi, batf, and other state and federal police forces. But, the truth be known, regardless of the charge, they are in prison for following the Lord. In China the charge will read, 'Refused to have an abortion'. In the USA it will say 'Blocking or protesting an abortion clinic' or maybe, 'refusing to allow their children to be taught that homosexuality is a really cool life style'. But the truth is, they are in jail for following Christ.

In the twelfth chapter of the book of Acts. We read that what is happening in China, the USA and the rest of the world isn't nothing new. It happened to James. It happened to Peter and God willing it will happen to me.

Acts 12:1-11

1 Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church.

2 And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.

3 And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)

4 And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.

5 Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.

6 And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.

7 And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.

8 And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.

9 And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.

10 When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.

11 And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews.

Of course others are missionaries right here in the United States, right around the corner in Kentucky. And the charge was murder and but it should have been "Evangelizing and teaching that abortion is always murder.". In China the arrest is made and a show trial takes place, no evidence is worried about. In Kentucky, the arrest is made and a show trial takes place and evidence is tampered with, altered and out and out destroyed.

As in verse five "... but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.", we too need to be in prayer daily for our Christian brothers and sisters who at this very moment languish and waste away in prisons both here and around the world.

Oy vey

Matthew 3:16-17

16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

A Jewish father was concerned about his son who was about a year away from his Bar Mitzvah but was sorely lacking in his knowledge of the Jewish faith. To remedy this he sent his son to Israel to experience his heritage. A year later the young man returned home.

"Father, thank you for sending me to the land of our Fathers," the son said. "It was wonderful and enlightening, however, I must confess that while in Israel I converted to Christianity."

"Oy vey," replied the father, "what have I done." So in the tradition of the patriarchs, he went to his best friend and sought his advice and solace. "It is amazing that you should come to me," stated his friend, "I too sent my son to Israel and he returned a Christian."

So in the tradition of the patriarchs, they went to the Rabbi "It is amazing that you should come to me," stated the Rabbi, "I too sent my son to Israel and he returned a Christian. What is happening to our sons?"

Brothers, we must take this to the Lord," said the Rabbi. They fell to their knees and began to wail and pour out their hearts to the Almighty. As they prayed the clouds above opened and a Mighty Voice stated,

"Amazing that you should come to Me. I, too, sent My Son to Israel....."

Matthew 17:4-8

4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.

5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

6 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid.

7 And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid.

8 And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only.

Humm.

Is sin acceptable? Are all sins forgivable?

John 8:1-6
1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
2 And early in the morning Jesus came again into the temple, and all the people came unto Him; and He sat down, and taught them.
3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto the Lord a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
4 They say unto Jesus, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
6 This they said, tempting Him, that they might have to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though He heard them not.

Won't it be wonderful, one day, to be able to ask the Lord what He wrote in the dust that day. Here we have one more example of government officials trying to trap the Lord and then, like today, they were willing to sacrifice a woman to trap the Lord.

And just like then the Lord is still willing to forgive sin.

John 8:10-11
10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, He said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

And that's the key still, repent and go and sin no more. Oh, we will all continue to sin, no way around that, but we are to go and make an effort not to sin any more, to stop and call upon the Lord at the moment of temptation. To call out to Him and ask His help in helping you not to sin, so that you can "Go and sin no more".

Yes, Born Again believers do continue to sin after we are Saved, but, with and through the help and guidance of the Holy Spirit, we sin less and less as time goes on and we grow in the Lord.

Lord, let Your Spirit be with us today, let Him guide us, direct us and protect us and ours. In Your name we pray, amen.

I was talking to, FRMAG, a fellow freeper earlier, we were talking about the distinct possibility that he would very soon have to put his cocker spaniel out of his misery. As he spoke of this little critter and how much that little dog had done for him and how much he loved that little dog, it started to occur to me that there is nothing more that I would like than to be Jesus' golden retriever.

You know, when you look at a man and his dog, when you watch the excitement that dog has as his master approaches and how when that dog is doing nothing but laying at his masters feet, his master will some times just reach down pat the dog and say good boy, just for no reason other than he really loves that little dog.

Well, I think that tells us a lot about what our relationship with the Lord should be. As that dog's master can do no wrong, so the Lord can do no wrong in our eyes either. And as that dog is loved, even when he does something bad, like eating the Thanksgiving turkey, The Lord still loves us, as my friend Mac still loved his dog.

We sometimes make the love of the Lord difficult to understand, but if you just look at the devotion shown to man by his dog and the love given back to that dog by his master, well, I think that's a bit of a picture of our relationship with the Lord.

Now I know some are going to take offense at this comparison, well, only throw stones at me half of the time, throw them at FRMAG the rest. For he and I have been friends now for about fifty years and we have been through a bunch of stones and dogs.

Animals have a special place in our hearts, last week I helped a neighbor bury her daughters kitten that had gotten run over, I think this Wednesday at childrens church, I'll preach about animals in heaven.

Little girls and their kittens grown men and their cocker spaniels and the Lord and his golden retriever.

Oh Lord Jesus, help me to love you as much as my dogs have loved me, help me to be as faithful to you as my dogs have been to me, help me to worship you as my dogs have me. Amen. Oh, and Lord, thank you for opening my friend Mac's eyes and Jesus, on this the week of his birth, bless him, give him a little extra blessings and love, for Lord, he is after all, getting to be an old sarge. Fifty five, wow, almost my age. Bless him with health and strength and Your daily bread. amen

Can you work your way into heaven or hell?

John 3:14-15

14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

Numbers 21:8-9

8 And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.

9 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.

John 3: 16-18

16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.

But, now read 18 carefully.

18 He that believeth on Him, Jesus, is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.



John 5:45-47

45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.

46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.

47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

We love to read John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

But we have a tendency to forget or ignore verses 17 and 18. Jesus doesn't condemn the unrepentant, they condemn themselves. By refusing to accept and believe on the Lord Jesus, they condemn themselves.

Salvation is as easy as crossing a street, if you don't cross the street, you can not get to the other side. It doesn't matter how nice a guy you are, doesn't matter how much you donate, if you don't cross that street, you just can't get to the other side. Same thing with salvation, if one does not accept Jesus as Lord, Master, Creator and God, that person can not and will not get into heaven. I welcome the unsaved into the anti abortion pro life camp, but it always breaks my heart to know that unless they accept Jesus, they will spend eternity, not with the babies whose lives they try to save, but the abortionist that slaughters them.

Lord please cleanse this Nineveh.

This post is for those of you who are absolutely Born Again Christians. If you have accepted the Lord Jesus as your own personal Messiah and Savior, if you have repented and are Born Again, please, please, please join with me, and ask others who are Saved to join with you in saying a small and important prayer.

At precisely 6:PM Eastern Standard Daily time this Saturday October 9th, 1999 find a way to be absolutely alone, where you can fall on your knees and say this brief prayer.

"Father in heaven how Holy and Sacred art thou name. Father I pray to thee, that You will hear my prayer, please forgive me for those things I have said, thought and done that have offended thee, Father please deal with abortion and abortionist. Oh heavenly Father I pray to thee in the name of thy Sacred Son, my Lord and my Savior, Jesus who is the Christ. Lord Jesus, I beseech thee, that if thy servant has found favor in thy sight, that You would take this prayer to the Father as a petition, asking Him to hear and grant this prayer for Your sake.

Amen."

I feel in my heart, my friends, that with the new information coming out about abortion, the types and the sales and uses these poor babies body parts are being used for is about to cause a major problem in this country and throughout the word. Please let us turn to the Father one more time, let us turn in unison and in desperation. My guess is that some of you are getting the same email and phone calls that I am. Please let us ask and beg the Lord for His help one more time.

For Jesus has told us that "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."

The Great Creation Contest or, "Go get your own dirt."



One day a group of scientists got together and decided that man had come a long way and no longer needed God. So they picked one scientist to go and tell Him that they were done with Him.

The scientist walked up to God and said, "God, we've decided that we no longer need you. We're to the point that we can clone people and do many miraculous things, so why don't you just go on and get lost."

So, God listened very patiently and kindly to the man. After the scientist was done talking, God said, "Very well, how about this? Let's have a man-making contest." To which the scientist replied, "Okay, great!"

But God added, "Now, we're going to do this just like I did back in the old days with Adam."

The scientist said, "Sure, no problem" and bent down and grabbed himself a handful of dirt.

God looked at him and said, "No, no, no. You go get your own dirt!"

Genesis 1:1-28

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.

14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and

Now, either the evolutionists or God are lying. Both can not be telling the truth. In the words of Joshua, who said it both before me and better than me,

Joshua 24:15

15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

John 1:12
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

John 6:29
29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

John 9:35
35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?

John 9:36-38
36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?
37 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee.
38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.

Acts 16:31
31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

Acts 19:4
4 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.

Even devils believe in the Lord Jesus, politicians and historians agree that Jesus is real, as do evolutionists and Jews, Hindus and Muslims. But , do you believe On the Lord Jesus?

To believe in is easy, open an encyclopedia, look up Jesus and you will find ample evidence to believe IN. But believing On, now that is the test. For the difference is this. If you were on the roof of your house and someone told you to jump, not to worry, they would catch you, just jump. You would ask them for reassurances, lots of reassurances and then if you did jump, it would be with much hesitation and fear. But, when you were a little child and your parents put you on a table and held out their arms to you, well, you just walked off that table into their arms without even being told to jump. That faith you displayed as a little child, that my friends is believing ON.

But, a governor's words in playboy, the president, vice president and the entire administration boycotting the funerals for the Christians murdered at the Westwood Baptist Church, speak volumes about how American Society and those who represent it think about Christians.

Praise God!

John 7:14-17
14 Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.
15 And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?
16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but His that sent me.
17 If any man will do His will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.

All one needs to do to know the truth, to know that Jesus is the Son of God and that God did send Him, is to "If any man will do His will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself." Praise God!

If you doubt or have questions, just get on your knees, in a quiet place, and ask God if Jesus is His Son. Do it seriously and with the reverence due the Creator, and you will get your answer.

Why is it that so many Christians are so willing to believe the words of sinful men over the word of Scripture?

2 Timothy 4:1-5

1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;

2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

What is amazing is that Paul wrote to Timothy almost 2,000 years ago and told him what would be happening today.

Sometimes it is just best to focus on the Lord's words.

John 3:14-18
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (KJV)

Often times we are hesitant to witness to people, especially those who are unsaved and close to us. A cousin, a friend, or perhaps a child or a parent, we hesitate, for fear that we will upset them or drive them away. Well, I want you to think about this for a moment.

If your child, parent or friend were about to do something that would cause them great bodily harm, perhaps even death, like jumping in front of a speeding semi tractor trailer truck or a speeding train perhaps, would you break their leg to keep them from jumping?

How much more important is keeping their soul out of hell? Jesus was faced with the same dilemma my friends, He had something to say, and knew that in saying it, the majority of those who followed Him would leave, but because it was right and had to be said to insure salvation for us who believe on Him, He said it.

John 6:48-61
48 I am that bread of life.
49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
50 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

52 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.
54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.

58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.
59 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.
60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?
61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?

You may want to read the entire chapter, but the point is, we too, must risk having our friends and family getting mad at us, for is it not better for them to be mad and hear the Word of God than to go through life ignoring and turning from the Lord and spending eternity in hell with those who have rejected the Lord knowingly or unknowingly?

For you will not lose your salvation if you leave them alone, but it might cost them their salvation. Imagine a scene like this. You, your brother and your father are riding in a car, along comes a train and runs the car over. You, your brother and your father have all just died and you enter heaven. The Lord greets you with open arms and you ask about your brother and your father. The Lord looks in His book of Life and shakes His head. He then ask you why you didn't witness to them. What do you tell Him? "Well Lord, I didn't want to upset them." And as He and you look across the gulf and you see your brother and your father there, what then? The Lord looks at you and says "Oh".

Luke 16:22-26
22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

May the grace of our Lord Jesus be with all of you today.

3 For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth.
4 The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.
5 His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them.

Parents, you really need to consider home schooling or sending your children to Christian Schools. We have reached a point where a Bible left on a teachers desk is hidden under a stack of books by aides in the room. While the library is full of and children are encouraged to read R.L.Stines Goosebumbs books.

Grandparents, it is time to tell your kids that you will help them with tuition for Christian school or with the home schooling in any and all ways you can.

If you absolutely must leave your children in the public school system, at least get a copy of the Hatch letter, fill it in quadruplicate and hand deliver it to your child's school.

God has entrusted these children to you and yours, He will hold you responsible. And I don't think telling Him ‘you really appreciated His loan to you of those kids, but you really needed the extra paycheck to get that fancy new car', is going to cut it with Him.

The Hatch letter below protects your children from the radical agenda of public schools.

Click here for the Hatch Amendment letter, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of these United States!

Pastors, take a day or two my brothers and offer to be a substitute teacher in your local public junior high school. We, my fellow stewards, are in a fight for the souls of these children. Satan and his forces within the public school system have refined the apple and are not only dangling it and offering it, they are compelling our children to eat thereof. We know that God will not hold us, those He has called to shepard, His flock, harmless.

May our Lord and Saviour Jesus, the Son of the Living God, be with us as we fight for His. Amen.

Revelation 1
Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

Blessed is he that reads, hears and does the words of this prophecy.

Revelation, the only book in the Bible promising a special blessing just for reading it, hearing it and abiding by it. While reading and hearing it are pretty easy, but what about abiding by the words of this prophecy. How hard is that? Not really very hard.

Revelation 2:5
Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

Revelation 2:16
Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

Revelation 2:22
Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.

Revelation 3:3
Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

Revelation 3:19
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

See the word repent? So, that is one thing, Repent. Well, if you are Born Again, you have already done that. So what else are we to do to get that special blessing? Evangelize.

Revelation 3:7-8
7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith He that is holy, He that is true, He that hath the key of David, He that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;
8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

The open door is both the door of salvation and the door of evangelizing. Jesus knows that we are small in number and weak, therefore, He holds the doors open for us and promises us that no man can close then on us. Does evangelizing mean you need to go out onto the streets of New York and preach from every corner? Not unless He sends you, but, do you have an unsaved friend or relative? Have you witnessed to them?

The Lord Jesus Christ be with you all, Amen. And please keep those whom the Lord has sent into heathen nations around the world in prayer, for some of them are in very real danger.

I surrender All ?????

Sometimes on Sunday, we will sing "I surrender All" A hymn that I feel sure is sung in many of your churches as well. What's it mean when we sing it? Think to yourself, what do you mean when you sing out to the Lord "I'll surrender all, I'll surrender all!" Does it really mean, Lord you can have everything, that I don't want and have little or no use for, no one else wants, it, I can't give it away and the dump won't take it.

But, what does the Lord mean when He tells us to surrender all?

Mark 10:17-22
17 And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?
18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.
19 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.
20 And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.
21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
22 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.

See how he, the rich young ruler, had done all of the letter of the law in verses 19 & 22, but then the Lord tells him to surrender all and follow Him, the young man is very sad and left, for he had much riches.

What was the Lord telling him, nothing more than "make me first in your life". He who created all things doesn't need your gold and silver, He just needs you to love Him more than you love the gold and the silver that He thought into existence. So, the next time you sing, "I'll surrender all", do it, surrender you total love and devotion to Him. Put He who created the gold and the silver ahead of the gold and silver.

The Lord Jesus be with you and yours. And may He bless you and yours abundantly. And remember, be cautious of those who have renounced the Lord. For as Paul has said,

2 Corinthians 6:14-16
14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

You know when you think about it, while Ted Turner and Bill Gates and other multi billionaires forget to thank God, preachers are always thanking God, or at least ones who preach His word do. Why you ask? I've often wondered that same thing, after all, we certainly don't get paid very much, but two things preaching the word of God will get you, prayers and blessings from the believers and persecution from the heathens of the world. And oh how wonderful it is to be beat up on for His name and for preaching His word. For Jesus Himself has told us:

Matthew 5:10-12
10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

And in

John 15:18-21
18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.

So, no, preachers aren't masochist, we simply knew from the day He selected us to preach His word that the world would hate us and beat up on us, for why would they who are the sons of he who caused the Lord to be crucified treat us, His devout and better?

Oh thank you Lord for the heathens of the world and the persecution they bring to your faithful.

How important is Scripture? Do you ever wonder how dangerous a game those who change and misquote Scripture are playing?

There is only one individual in the Bible that plays that game, let's look at him today; Genesis 3:2-5
2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5. For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

and again in:

Matthew 4:2-10
2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, He was afterward an hungred.
3 And when the tempter came to Him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
4 But Jesus answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
5 Then the devil taketh Him up into the holy city, and setteth Him on a pinnacle of the temple,
6 And saith unto Him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
8 Again, the devil taketh Him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth Him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
9 And saith unto Him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve.

So, when so one twist Scripture to meet their own needs and serve their own purpose, who do you think they are serving? Who so you think they worship?

Look:

Matthew 7:21-23
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

When you read or hear Scripture, take out your own Bible and check ever word against that which is written. I'm not talking about changing a h to an H when the He or Him is the Lord Jesus or God. I'm not talking about changing the word Him or He to Jesus. I'm talking about changing the meaning and or the context of Scripture, as Satan did in the garden of Eden.

May the Lord Jesus be with you through out this day and may He bless those who bless you and yours and may He curse those who curse you and yours. And may I close by asking Gods blessing upon all who read this Daily thought, amen.

Do you ever ask yourself, what is more important in your life, the Lord or your possessions? Who or what do you spend more time thinking about, your new car or the Lord? Perhaps you would like to read just four short verses spoken by the Lord Jesus almost 2,000 years ago.

Matthew 6:19-21
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

And

Matthew 6:24
24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Psalm 127: verse 3
Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. (KJV)

Are you a home schooler? Are you and your husband suffering financially to either home school or send your children to Christian school? Do you occasionally look at the neighbors new car ans say to yourself; "If we sent the kids to public school, we could have a new car." Read Psalm 127 verse 3 again. Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. (KJV)

When you start to get discouraged or the financial woes seem to become overwhelming, take a day off. That's right, you heard me right, take a day off. Ask your pastor to school the kids for a day if your home schooling and go to the local public school and volunteer for the day. Volunteer to work in a class about three grade levels above your own Christian Schooled or Home Schooled kids. Then ask yourself this, do you really want the new car that much? Are you willing to send your kids there for a second income or a newer car?

I know it's tough, Christ knows it's tough. He would not be giving you a crown if it were easy. God has entrusted those children to you, He gave you a crown for carrying and not aborting them. He gave you a crown for feeding them and changing them and loving them even when they throw up. And believe me, He will give you a crown for schooling them as well. God bless all that are home schooling or making the sacrifice to send their kids to Christian schools. Jesus will neither ignore nor forget the loyalty and love that you are showing His gift to you.

Taiwan, Turkey, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Moscow, China and the list goes on and on and on. Earthquakes more and more often in more and more places.

Hurricanes and Typhons wash away people and top soil, tornadoes destroy homes and buildings with total and absolute impunity.

And the news yells out "Nature on a rampage" Act of God destroys thousands". Yet mankind insist on continuing on it's path of self destruction by both ignoring and denying the very God who controls our weather and our very lives.

Matthew 24:7
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. (KJV)
Mark 13:8
8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows. (KJV)
Luke 21:11
11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (KJV)

Want the carnage to stop? What the earth to quit quaking? Want fewer and less devastating typhons, hurricanes and tornadoes? Start by stopping abortion. You want to continue to spit in Gods face by slaughtering those whom He has entrusted to you? Then be prepared to pay the price. And if you think He is going to turn the other cheek and forget the 65 million babies murdered in the USA and the over 3 billion worldwide, forget it.

Daily thought for; Monday September 20th, 1999

As we move towards the turning of the century, more and more we here those in authority telling us that there is no God. I oft times wonder how they come up with that idea. Do they have some kind of a God meter? How does it work, do they put one probe on the north pole and one on the south pole, turn it on and it probes earth for God? Perhaps they go and look in every nook and cranny, calling out "God, God are you there?" Is that why they sent probes into deep space? But, if there is no God, let them answer the questions that He, whom they claim doesn't exist, asked Job.

Job 39:13-17
13 Gavest thou the goodly wings unto the peacocks? or wings and feathers unto the ostrich?
14 Which leaves her eggs in the earth, and warms them in dust,
15 And forgets that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them.
16 She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not hers: her labor is in vain without fear;
17 Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, neither hath he imparted to her understanding. (KJV)

But even the ostrich doesn't intentionally murder her young. Only human mothers purposely take that which God has given them and destroy it, perhaps that's why they claim there is no God. For to know God and kill your baby is unimaginable.

One day, even those who today deny both God and Jesus will acknowledge and bow down before them, unfortunately for them, that time will be to late, don't let it be with you.

This weekend signifies the end of the Jewish celebration of Rosh Hashana:

Perhaps it is a good time for us to look at the closing verse of Rosh Hashana,

Nehemaiah 8:10 10 Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength. (KJV)

To learn a little about Rosh Hashana, click here.

For our orthodox Jewish friends I would ask you, what do these first fruits signify?
What or whom do they point to?
What is it that you are to be looking to when you celebrate Rosh Hashanan?

The Lord be with you and give you insight at this time of First Fruits. Amen.

Is it time to be armed on the pulpit?

At six thirty this morning, I heard the news blaring that at last nights prayer meeting at a Baptist Church, in Fort Worth , Texas a man shouting anti Christian obscenities came in opened fire and killed six or eight people, with another dying en route to the hospital. A couple of thoughts passed through my mind, almost simultaneously "Oh Lord help them through this." "Lord, do we need to be armed on the pulpit now?" And of course the ever present question, "What's going on here?".

Almost immediately I had the answers to all three questions. I know, without a doubt that the Lord will greet those who were killed with open arms, I know He will help those who are wounded and those who lost loved ones through this ordeal. And I know "What's going on here?"

What's going on is simply more proof of the words of the Lord! When the Apostles of Jesus asked Him what would be the signs of the end times, He told them:

Luke 21:16-17

16 And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.

17 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake.

(KJV)

The two little satan worshipping nazis that asked if there was anyone who believed in Jesus and then killed those who said yes at Columbine High killed Christians only because they were Christians.

The Federal secret police agencies that attacked and killed the Branch Dividians at Waco, Texas were not looking to make arrest for so called, yet never proven gun violations, they wanted to kill Christians! The federal paid killer that took careful aim and sent Vickie Weaver into the arms of the Lord, killed her and her son, not because Randy had supposedly cut a couple of inches off the barrel of a shot gun, they did it because they like to kill Christians.

The parts of Iraq that have been most bombed, are not the palaces of the dictator, but the hovels of the Christian community, why? Because President Clinton, Secretary of Defense Cohen and others in this government want to kill Christians and the list goes on, why do we not stop the slave trade in the Sudan? Is it not because those being sold, raped, murdered and crucified are Christians?

The words the Lord spoke two thousand years ago are coming true before our very eyes. But, let us not worry, for Jesus also said this:

Luke 12:4-5

4 And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.

5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

(KJV)

and:

Revelation 3:7-10

7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

(KJV)

So, should we start being armed when on the pulpit? Come to church Sunday or bible study and prayer meeting on Wednesday and see.

Todays Associated Press headlines screem:

MIAMI (AP) - More than 1 million people were told to evacuate the Atlantic coast Monday and NASA all but abandoned Cape Canaveral as Hurricane Floyd - one of the most powerful storms ever to threaten the United States - charged toward Florida with potentially catastrophic 155 mph winds.

Yet their are still some that would have us believe that Jeb and George junior are any different than Mr. One World Government himself George Herbert Walker Bush senior.

Where in the Constitution of these United States do politicians think they get the authority to order you out of your home. Yet, order they do and follow those orders do we. No man has ever taken away our liberty and freedom, we have given it up.

But, just what is Jeb and Florida's National Guard going to do if they run into a man who won't leave? Call in the FBI and the BATF and Delta and kill him. Kind of like their reasoning for killing babies in the womb. They abort babies to keep them from being born into homes where they may not be loved and may be abused. So, to keep them from maybe being abused, the Bush family politicians and President Clinton suggest that they be killed instead. Will this same logic work with a man who can and will fight back? Only time will tell, and you certainly won't see it on the nightly news with Peter Jennings.

Isn't it amazing and wonderful that the Bible predicted these things 2, 4 and even 5 thousand years ago? May God restore America and raise up men who will stand up for freedom and not welfare checks. May He give us men who will love their children both in and out of the womb more than food stamps.
Amen.

Psalm 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
Think about the majesty and perfectness of God's creations. The spendor and hugeness of the heavens, the size of the earth. How He thought of everything including gravity. Had He spun the earth a bit faster we would be in deep trouble. Had He slowed it down a bit, we would be indanger of falling off. But no the Lord did it just right.
Look at the wings of a butterfly or the petals of a flower. Have you ever seen anything more perfect? Tiny, but perfect in detail.
But of course, for all was created by God and He is perfect. (KJV)
Thank you Lord, amen!

Luke 13:11-16
11 And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself.
12 And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.
13 And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.
14 And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath day.
15 The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering?
16 And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day? (KJV)

The ruler of the synagogue, who claimed to love all people, was mad because God had healed a woman on the sabbath.
Doesn't this ruler of the synagogue remind you of our governement today? As 20 children in Waco Texas were burnt to death by US Federal Police with the help of the US Army, the president and his attorney general told us they were doing it for the children. And like the lackies in the synagogue who nodded their heads when the ruler of the synagogue made his Asinine statement, so did the vast majority of congress, the senate, the press and the american people, as they watched the Branch Dividian compound burn to the ground killing 80 US citizens including 20 little children.

Take a moment and ask God to forgive us as a nation, for if we do not repent, things can and will only get worse.

The Lord Jesus who is the Christ said in John 14:6

The headlines are blaring

"Clinton and Reno knew and may have ordered the US Army to destroy the Branch Dividians with incenory devices and gasses outlawed for use in war!"


And Jesus said in Mark 8:36-37 36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? 37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? (KJV)

Think about that for a moment, how will clinton answer the Lord on judgement day? But more important, do you think the Lord will except as an excuse from those members of the US Army that helped clinton and reno to commit those murders, "I was just following orders"? I think not. It is time to stand up for what is right, it is time to think of eternity, not a pat on the head from clinton, his minions and his ilk.
I for one, will not ask God to forgive them for those murders, I will instead ask Him to deal with them so as to cause them to realize the horror they have committed in the name of clinton, his minions, his ilk and their god.

Daily thought for; Tuesday August 31st, 1999

Take a moment and think about this, answer honestly, no one will know your answer but you and God.
If you died right this instant, where would you spend eternity? In heaven with the Lord Jesus who is the Christ, the Father, the Holy Ghost and me or in hell with satan, his minions, his ilk and those who serve him knowingly and unknowingly.
And what do you base your answer on?
After you've thought seriously about the two questions above, think about this, Jesus has told us that to get into heaven, we must be Born Again and that no one gets to the Father except through Him. Paul tells us that Salvation is through Grace and not through good works. Are you trying to work your way into heaven? Or have you simply been Born Again?

Daily thought for; Wednesday September 1st, 1999

A young man had been to Wednesday night Bible Study. The Pastor had shared about listening to God and obeying the Lord's voice. The young man couldn't help but wonder, "Does God still speak to people?" After the service he went out with some friends for coffee and pie and they discussed the message. Several different ones talked about how God had led them in different ways. It was about ten o'clock when the young man started driving home.
Sitting in his car, he just began to pray, "God.. If you still speak to people speak to me. I will listen. I will do my best to obey." As he drove down the main street of his town, he had the strangest thought, stop and buy a gallon of milk. He shook his head and said out loud, "God is that you?"
He didn't get a reply and started on toward home. But again, the thought, buy a gallon of milk came to him. The young man thought about Samuel and how he didn't recognize the voice of God, and how little Samuel ran to Eli. Humm he said, "Okay, God, in case that is you, I will buy the milk."
It didn't seem like too hard a test of obedience. He could always use the milk. He stopped and purchased the gallon of milk and started off toward home. As he passed Seventh Street, he again felt the urge, "Turn down that street." This is crazy he thought and drove on past the intersection. Again, he felt that he should turn down Seventh Street. At the next intersection, he turned back and headed down Seventh.
Half jokingly, he said out loud, "Okay, God, I will". He drove several blocks, when suddenly, he felt that he should stop. He pulled over to the curb and looked around. He was in a semi-commercial area of town. It wasn't the best but it wasn't the worst of neighborhoods either. The businesses were closed and most of the houses looked dark like the people were already in bed.
Again, he sensed something, "Go and give the milk to the people in the house across the street." The young man looked at the house. It was dark and it looked like the people were either gone or they were already asleep. He started "Lord, this is insane. Those people are asleep and if I wake them up, they are going to be mad and I will look stupid." Again, he felt like he should go and give the milk. Finally, he opened the door, "Okay God, if this is you, I will go to the door and I will give them the milk. If you want me to look like a crazy person, okay. I want to be obedient. I guess that will count for something but if they don't answer right away, I am out of here."
He walked across the street and rang the bell.
He could hear some noise inside. A man's voice yelled out, "Who is it? What do you want?" Then the door opened before the young man could get away. A very large man was standing there in his jeans and t-shirt. He looked like he just got out of bed. He had a strange look on his face and he didn't seem to happy to have some stranger standing on his doorstep. "What is it?" The young man thrust out the gallon of milk, "Here, I brought this to you."
The man took the milk and rushed down a hall way speaking loudly in Spanish. Then from down the hall came a woman carrying the milk toward the kitchen. The man was following her holding a baby. The baby was crying. The man had tear streaming down his face. The man began speaking and half crying. "We were just praying. We had some big unexpected bills this month and we ran out of money. We didn't have any milk for our baby. I was just praying and asking God to show me how to get some milk." His wife in the kitchen yelled out,"I ask him to send an Angel with some. . . Are you an Angel?"
The young man reached into his wallet and pulled out all the money he had on him and put it in the man's hand. He turned and walked back toward his car and the tears were streaming down his face.
He knew that God still answers prayers.

Are you an angel? Do you listen for Gods voice? Would you have stopped and bought the milk, turned down seventh, brought the milk to the door?

Jesus said "He that is not with me is against me:"... Luke 11:23 (KJV)

I want to thank a very special friend for sending this to me, he is one of those extremley rare individuals who not only practices medicine, but is smart enough to be Born Again and to pray to God to help him cure Gods creations that come to him. Dr. Alan Bean.
God bless you and be with you Alan.

"The activists, who picket the Women's Health Care Services clinic run by Dr. George Tiller every day, said they will make every effort to get the girl to stop and talk before having the abortion."

During the last few days, the internet has been carrying a story about a 14 year old girl in Arizona who is about 5 or 6 months pregnant. The Arizona department of child services has been trying to get her baby aborted. A judge in Arizona issued a stay against the abortion, but the department of child services appealed it and another judge has ruled that they can take her to Wichita, Kansas to the butcher shop of the most notorious late term, partial birth abortionist in the country, george tiller.

Please pray that God will stop tiller the killer before he can slaughter any more babies.

If I could write a poem,
If I could sing a song.
If I could make a prayer,
To right this awful wrong;
I'd weep like Jeremiah
for the sins my people do
I'd take it all to Jesus
because He feels it too.

I'd tear my garments threadless,
I'd fall upon my knees
and plead with God in heaven
to give my spirit ease.
The sins against the children
are a sin against my God,
and the little lives aborted
are gifts that they have scorned.

Do you think this is done in secret;
Do you think God cannot see,
there will be an awful judgement
and eternal penalty.
Mothers, fathers, doctors nurses;
you too were helpless once like these;
Placed by God in safety, nourished gladly
till the time for your release.

STOP! Before you take another life away,
and I dare you to continue, if you dare to kneel and pray.

Matthew 5:39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. (KJV)

Luke 22:36 Then said Jesus unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. (KJV)

Jesus never told you to turn the other cheek when someone slapped your wife or your children. Nor has He ever said that you should be defenseless. When someone strikes you, you turn the other cheek, but when someone strikes those whom you are to die for, your wife and family, that is a different story. You are charged with their safety!

The Lord has instructed our wives and our children to submit to and obey us. And just what is expected of us in return?
A pay check?
A nasty temper?
Not hardly.

Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; (KJV)
That means, husbands, be prepared to go through for your family, what Jesus went through for His church. Torture and death!

Around 2,000 BC or so there was a man named Job. Satan had wracked havoc upon Jobs Life and Job, a righteous man, couldn't understand how he was being so beat up upon while evil men seemed to prosper.

Job 21:7-9
7 Wherefore do the wicked live, become old, yea, are mighty in power?
8 Their seed is established in their sight with them, and their offspring before their eyes.
9 Their houses are safe from fear, neither is the rod of God upon them. (KJV)

Two thousand years later Jesus answered Jobs question.

Luke 18:7-8
7 And shall not God avenge His own elect, which cry day and night unto Him, though He bear long with them? The elect are Born Again Christians that make up the church of Philadelphia, the body of Christ.
8 I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall He find faith on the earth? (KJV)

That answer helps us understand how purely evil men like clinton can be president, how evil corrupt minions of clinton like cohen can and will sell out not only their souls, but the fine young men and women who make up our armed forces, just to keep clinton, his wife, their minions and their ilk off the front pages.

But thank God for Jesus, for He has told us that one day, He will even the score. Stay faithful to the Lord my brave young soldiers and rest assured that one day very soon, the Lord Jesus Christ Himself will deal with clinton, cohen and their cohorts.

Daily thought for; Friday September 10th, 1999

Will the Lord always tolerate the evil that reigns on earth?

Will He always allow the clintons, the cohens, the snowes, baldaccis, franks, kennedys and collins to continue to destroy all that is good and pursue the purely evil agenda they have foisted not only on America but the world as well?

Will the Lord continue to allow, for ever, the use of American forces under the guise of the vicious right arm of the UN, NATO, to destroy nations and usher in a new one world government?

Is there anything in Scripture that tells us the Lord will deal with clinton, blair, barak and asafad?

Yes!!! Yes!!! Oh Yes there is.

For you see, in Luke chapter 19, verse 12 thru 27; the Lord tells the story of Himself and His coming then and His ultimate return. How He came and left on a journey, His return to heaven and the Father, and while He is gone He leaves people in charge of His people and things. This would be those who lead His people both in prayer and in government, the pope and the president are good examples. The pope because he claims to represent Christ on earth and clinton because he has been allowed, by God, to rule over God's people USA. Now, when the Lord returns, He will hold court so to speak and judge those who are in charge and others. And how will the Lord deal with them, well in verses 20 through 26, we see the Lord dealing fairly , justly and harshly with those He has entrusted and have let Him down. But, what happens to those nations that turn from Him under the leadership of evil and corrupt leaders? What happens to those who are the leaders ilk and minions and follow their leader, even when they know their leader is evil and working to undermine the Lord and His teachings?
Read verse 27!

Luke 19:27
But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me. (KJV)

Absolutely no interpretation is needed here!
I know that with the pond scum we have occupying the oval office and sitting in the chair of CIC, it is really hard on a lot of you who are in the US Armed Forces. I know it and the Lord knows it. BUT, you have your souls, your wives souls and your children's souls to be concerned with. Leave clinton and his immoral leadership in the squad room, do not take it home to your families! If you think for even one micro second that the Lord is going to buy the excuse of, ‘well Lord I had a tough day at the office', forget it! Read verse 27 again, that, Sargent, that lieutenant, that major is YOU He is talking about.
You fall for the rule of clinton and bring it home to your families and the Lord Jesus who is the Christ will, on the day He returns, have you brought before Him and slain before His very face!

And if that means giving up a promotion or not being invited to the generals barbecue, well, so what? You have been instructed to do for your wives and families what Jesus did for the church. Don't you think Jesus would have rathered go to a barbecue at the palace instead of the cross on calvary?
Matthew 26:39
And Jesus went a little further, and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. (KJV)

What is Jesus saying, He is praying to the Father in heaven saying, Father, if there is another way, if there some way I don't have to go up on that cross, I would like to try it. BUT, BUT, do you see that BUT. But He said, Your will be done, not mine! In other words, what the Lord is saying is, ‘while I would rather go to the barbecue down at the palace, I'll sacrifice it and my comfort for what is best for my family'.

Ya guys, Jesus would have preferred Pilots barbecue that Thursday, but instead He did what was right, He forsook the barbecue and was instead, chained, slapped, beat, whipped, nailed to a cross and speared in the side while He hug there like a baby in the womb with no place to run!

If your reading this page, you know what is right and if you continue to act like clinton and the joint chiefs of staff in your homes toward your families, I will be the first to testify against you on that day of judgement! As much as I love you guys, I'll see you burn in hell if you treat your wife and kids and the troops under you like clinton and the generals treat you!

BOX OF KISSES

Not a very long time ago, a man punished his 3-year-old daughter for wasting a roll of gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and he became infuriated when the child tried to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree.
Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift to her father the next morning and said, "This is for you, Daddy."
He was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found the box was empty. He yelled at her, "Don't you know that when you give someone a present there's supposed to be something inside it?"
The little girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and said, "Oh, Daddy, it is not empty. I blew kisses into the box. All for you, Daddy."
The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little girl, and he begged for her forgiveness. It is said that the man still keeps that gold box by his bed and whenever he is discouraged, he will take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there.

In a very real sense, each of us has been given a gold container filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, friends, family, and God. For our our wives, our children, families and friends are a gift from God! A gift that, if you don't know God, looks, at times, like a little empty box wrapped by a three year old with ten thumbs.
Psalm 127:3 Lo, children are an heritage (gift) of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his ( a mans) reward ( from both God and the mans wife). (KJV)

Luke 17:11-19
11 And it came to pass, as Jesus went to Jerusalem, that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.
12 And as He entered into a certain village, there met Him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off:
13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.
14 And when He saw them, He said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.
15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God,
16 And fell down on his face at Jesus's feet, giving Him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.
17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?
18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.
19 And He said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole. (KJV)

As we pray today for two freeper family members in the hospital today, let us pray with the confidence of the one, not as the nine.
Oh Lord JESUS who art in heaven Holy and Sacred is Thy name. O Lord, hear the prayers of those who love and serve You. Lord be with Jim's son and Alamo Girls nephew today, guide the hands of those who you have so blessed to be doctors and help them to use the knowledge You blessed them with to be used by You for Your glory and their healing, for Lord unlike the nine, we will and do give to You all the praise and all the glory.
Oh thank you Lord, thank you for treating us as little brothers and sisters and not as just something You created, thank You Lord for sacrificing Yourself or us so that we can be Saved and thank You Lord JESUS for hearing our prayers,
Amen

How important are our families to us, as Born Again Believers? Read and see:

My 35 year old nephew has a brain tumor and is scheduled to have it removed on Monday. He is the father of a 6 week old boy. He is a strong Christian man and the only son in his Christian family.
Would you please remember him in your prayers this weekend?
That is a Born Again Beleiver asking for prayers for her family, when we pray to God, we know that our prayers are being heard and that He will answer then. What do no belevers do?

On the same monday, ten year old Ross Greene, Who had a stroke when he was 21 months old, which has caused him to have seizures and has had a hard life since, will be undergoing testing to see if he will need brain surgery.
Ross's dad, Jim has asked us to pray for him.

When grown me and women love the Lord, they love their families as well. As the Lord's heart is torn by our suffering so are their hearts torn by the suffering of their family members. I would ask you all to keep both in prayer this week.

Please join with me in praying for Alamo Girls nephew and young Ross during the day today. Oh Lord in heaven, please watch over both of these your children.

Gentlemen, never go to bed without asking Gods blessing upon those two things He has given you, that you can take to heaven with you, your wife and your children! For the only things you can take to heaven with you, is your soul and the souls of your wife and children. Pray that God will bless them, protect them and cause them to be Saved.

Daily thought for; Wednesday September 15th, 1999

There are those that tell you that, by His, Jesus's, coming and dying on the cross, all are saved, all will go to heaven, none will be left behind. In the Scripture below, you'll see that, unless a person calls out to the Lord, He will walk right past them. To be Saved, a person must call out to the Lord.



Mark 6:45-51

45 And straightway Jesus constrained His disciples to get into the ship, and to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while He sent away the people.

46 And when Jesus had sent them away, He departed into a mountain to pray.

47 And when evening was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and Jesus alone on the land.

48 And He saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night He cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them.

49 But when they saw Him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out:

50 For they all saw Him, and were troubled. And immediately Jesus talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid.

51 And the Lord went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered. (KJV)

Around five in the evening, the Lord told His disciples to get into a boat and row across to the other side, He then sent away the people who had been listening to Him preach that day and went up onto the mountain and prayed to God the Father. Around 3 or 4 in the morning, the Lord finished praying and was walking across the lake when He came close to the boat the disciples were in. Now notice two things, first; there was a terrible storm going on and the disciples had been rowing and fighting this storm for about 8 hours, they must have been both soaked and bone tired, yet the second point to notice is in verse 48 "He cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them." Jesus was going to go right pass them. They were in dire need of His help, yet He was going to pass right by Him. But, when they called out to Him, He said "Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid." As soon as they called out to Him, He came, comforted them and stopped the storm.

Mark 6:51 And Jesus went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered. (KJV)

The next time someone tells you that you need do nothing for your salvation, it is done for you by sprinkling or intervention by a Rabbi, Priest or Cleric, or that by His death all was done and you need do nothing to reap the benefits, think of the Lords best friend on earth, the Apostle John aboard that little boat in the middle of the lake, being tossed around and John in fear of drowning, yet the Lord would have passed by if they hadn't called out.

Be sure, call out to the Lord, look at the weather, the earthquakes, the signs all around you. Call out to the Lord, let Him rescue you from today.
