Jews and Muslims, claim to read Scripture.

While Jews and Muslims claim to read Scripture, they claim to abide by and study the old Testament writings, they do lie. They lie to themselves, their families, their friends, their followers and anyone else who is foolish enough to listen to their drivel.

Now, the above sounds like a very hard, mean and belligerent statement, but it is none of those, it is the truth. The truth, plain and simple. For, if one were to read the writings of Scripture, one would read the prophets and prophecies of old, to read those prophets and prophecies, one would have no option but to read Micah and 1 Chronicles.

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.
The Messiah must be born in Bethlehem. Not should be, but must be. Jesus, Yeshua in the Hebrew, was born in Bethlehem!

1 Chronicles 17:11 And it shall come to pass, when thy days be expired that thou must go to be with thy fathers, that I will raise up thy seed after thee, which shall be of thy sons; and I will establish his kingdom.
This prophetic passage spoken by God the Father to David, deals with both Solomon building the first temple and the need for the Messiah to be able to trace His roots all the way back to David. Jesus roots are traced back to David and even to Adam and Eve.

Now, Jesus satisfied every prophecy dealing with the first coming of the Messiah, there can be no doubt or argument about that. But we are going to focus today on only the two verses above, for they are the Scriptures that both Jew and Muslim acknowledge as necessary for one to be the Messiah.

In 70 Ad, Titus came from Rome, and utterly destroyed the Temple. He totally destroyed it and all the records kept within. He then took what was left of the Jews and sent them all over the world as slaves, Jewish women for the next 1900 years became fair game for rape just about everywhere in the world except the USA. Then, in 1938-1944 Hitler destroyed what was left of Jewish antiquity and records in Europe, Africa, Asia, the Orient, South America and the Middle East.

What I am getting at is this, it would be absolutely impossible for anyone to trace his roots back to David anytime after 70 AD! The Messiah had to be born before 70 AD! And anyone who claims otherwise is a liar, a deceiver, a follower of the great deceiver, the great liar, the father of all liars, satan.

Pray for the Jews my brothers, pray for the Muslims, for they are being lead straight to hell, while they think and delude themselves into believing that they are serving the Lord God Jehovah.

For one need read nothing other than Revelation to see what happens to these mislead souls. Revelation 3:9 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.

The Lord Yeshua bless you that pray for those who so long ago were entrusted to preserve the Word of God so that we could recognize the Lord God Yeshua. That He would now open their eyes, take the hardness from their hearts and give them ears to hear and a heart to understand. For to be His chosen people today means to be Born Again.
Amen.

What must one do to be Saved?

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: Romans 5:1

Why, oh why do folks think it is so difficult to be Saved? Could it be that they have never read the account of the two thieves on the crosses on each side of the Lord Jesus? Let's look.

There are but three things a man must do to be Saved. Two of the three are listed above in Romans 5:1, faith and trust. You must believe on the Lord Jesus and you must put your trust in Him as your Saviour, your Lord, God the creator of all things.

The third thing one must do is confess that Jesus is Lord with your mouth, this can be by writing, but is best done with the mouth. Notice in the account of the two thieves being crucified with the Lord Jesus in Luke 23:39-43 below, how one of the two thieves being crucified looks over to the Lord, and acknowledges that Jesus is God, by asking the other thief if he doesn't fear God after that thief had verbally abused the Lord. The repentant thief went on and confessed that he was a sinner by telling the other thief that the two of them deserved their plight because they indeed were guilty, but, and here once again he acknowledges the Lord, but he says,"but this man hath done nothing amiss." The Saved thief then publicly announces that Jesus is God by saying "Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom." Let us read the account together. 39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on Jesus, saying, If thou be Christ, save Thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.

And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
Luke 23:39-43

Notice, While I am a firm believer in being baptized as an adult or young adult, the Saved thief was not baptized, so being baptized is not a requirement of being Saved, it is a result of it and an opportunity to confess that Jesus is Lord with your mouth and in front of a friendly audience.

And is there any doubt that the thief was Saved, for the Lord Himself answered him by saying "Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.".

So to be Saved all a man or woman must do is: Go to the Lord in prayer, telling Him that one, you acknowledge Him as God, confess that you are a sinner, and that you want Him to take control of your life and third confess that Jesus is Lord to others.

And that is it. But you must be serious, you can not just mouth the words, remember, God sees what is on your heart, He doesn't just listen to words spoken. He knows whether you are serious or not, as do you.

May the Lord God of the Universe be with you and bless you, may He abide with and within you till you go to be with Him in His glory.
Amen

But Rabbi...? Yes, but Rabbi.

How better might I ask you to study the Bible than to use it as your only reference book in writing a book? And that my dear fellow patriots, brothers, and sisters is exactly what yesterday's thought dealt with. Over the next couple of months, on occasion, I will be using various parts of my new book But Rabbi... as part of the daily Christian thoughts. Not often, mind you, but on occasion. One of the reasons I did that yesterday and will be doing it in the future is to show you how much Old Testament Scripture goes into just three verses of New Testament Scripture. This in itself is proof positive that no man or group of men could have simply sat down and written the Bible. Before becoming a full time preacher, I was the publisher of three monthly newspapers. Having been both publisher and editor, I know the difficulty there is in just getting two or three writers working on the same page on the same subject. To have dozens, over more than a thousand years writing and having their writings homogenize as the writings in the Bible do, is simply impossible.

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 Peter 1:20&21

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

Yes, my fellow servants of the Lord Jesus, Scripture is for us to learn and live our lives by, not be beaten up by. Take time and study God's word every day. Not only will it make your life easier, it will make your job as a dad and guardian of your loved ones one hundred percent easier. And that is important, because as this new administration and justice department unfold, they will either fall in line with satan or Christ. If satan, we will need God's word and help to get us through. If Christ, then they will need our constant prayer and support to insure their success and our freedom and the life of the baby in the womb. No, the forces of clinton and satan will not give up easily. We saw that over the last eight years. Even now, the forces of satan in the media are only critical of the corruption of the past and not calling for real true honest investigations.

So, as you read God's word, the Holy Bible, don't just read the words, study. Take the time to look for the references and read the referrals, study as in yesterdays thought.

Let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Christ Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
Amen

I just got this and would appreciate your joining in to pray as well.
"...Jared is 20 months old an only child, and lives with his parents in Michigan. I learned about him since until he was diagnosed as having a rare form of cancer, my sister-in-law helped to care for him in her home regularly. Since Jared and his family are in need of our prayers; my brother Carl and I would like to ask for your help. ..."

But Rabbi...

But Rabbi...



The year was 69 AD, it had been 40 years since Yeshua had been crucified and over that since he had last gone to Him at night, asking, "... what must a man do to be saved?" One more year and General Titus, the commander and Roman governor of Jerusalem and all Judea would totally and completely destroy the Temple, leaving not one stone standing on another. But today, this glorious Saturday afternoon in the very early spring of the year, rabbi Nicodemus stood on the steps greeting his flock as they came to worship, knowing that this day, this the high sabbath, the Passover, would be the day he told them of Yeshua.



Chapter one



Rabbi Nicodemus stood at the entrance of the synagogue, greeting man after man, all where men he had known for years, most of whom the rabbi who was going on 90 years of age had circumcised as well as celebrated their coming of age. As each passed, went in and took his seat, Nicodemus thought once again, how important today would be, for today, he would speak of things that were, things that are and things that will come to be. Today he would himself find out if he were in deed a leader of the Jews.



Slowly, ever so slowly Nicodemus made his way to the front of the congregation, as he looked out, suddenly he started to speak, not as a ninety year old would speak, but as one half his age but with twice his knowledge, for last night and over the last week, he had been in prayer, prayer asking Jehovah the Father Creator of all things for courage, knowledge and strength for today's sermon.



May the Lord God Jehovah bless thee, and keep thee: may He make His face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: may the LORD lift up His countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. For He shall put His name upon the children of Israel; and will bless them. May Jehovah creator of all things give you eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart to understand His word. May He be with me and help me to give His word, to speak in a way in which you and your families will understand. May he bless the fathers, the mothers and the children here today. May He help all to be patient and understanding as we study His word this day and worship His name, His presence and His blessed Seed.



Nicodemus, after having blessed the congregation said today we will start by reading from the book of Numbers, chapter 12, verses 4 through 9.



And the LORD spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam, Come out ye three unto the tabernacle of the congregation. And they three came out. And the LORD came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood in the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam: and they both came forth. And God said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream. My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house. With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the LORD shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?



And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and He departed.



Nicodemus continued with Deuteronomy 4: verses 1-4



Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers giveth you. Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you. Your eyes have seen what the LORD did because of Baalpeor: for all the men that followed Baalpeor, the LORD thy God hath destroyed them from among you. But ye that did cleave unto the LORD your God are alive every one of you this day.



As Nicodemus paused and looked at his sheep, one, a young man named Bartholomew speaking with reference and question, quietly said, "but rabbi, what was Ballpeor?" Nicodemus asked for those who remembered Baalpeor to explain it to those who might not. And Saul a rich man, the son of Joseph the shop builder said: "We by Moses in the book of Numbers in the 25th chapter learned how as the Lord our God lead our fathers through the desert after rescuing them from the slavery of Egypt, they fell to following false gods ane the Lord our God Jehovah smote and killed twenty and four thousand."



And as Nicodemus nodded in accent, he caused the scrolls to be brought forward and the man Saul to come forth and read. And Saul read.



And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab. And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods: and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods. And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel.



And the LORD said unto Moses, Take all the heads of the people, and hang them up before the LORD against the sun, that the fierce anger of the LORD may be turned away from Israel. And Moses said unto the judges of Israel, Slay ye every one his men that were joined unto Baalpeor.



And, behold, one of the children of Israel came and brought unto his brethren a Midianitish woman in the sight of Moses, and in the sight of all the congregation of the children of Israel, who were weeping before the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. And when Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he rose up from among the congregation, and took a javelin in his hand; And he went after the man of Israel into the tent, and thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her belly. So the plague was stayed from the children of Israel. Yet those that died in the plague were twenty and four thousand.



And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, hath turned my wrath away from the children of Israel, while he was zealous for my sake among them, that I consumed not the children of Israel in my jealousy. Wherefore say, Behold, I give unto him my covenant of peace: And he shall have it, and his seed after him, even the covenant of an everlasting priesthood; because he was zealous for his God, and made an atonement for the children of Israel.



Now the name of the Israelite that was slain, even that was slain with the Midianitish woman, was Zimri, the son of Salu, a prince of a chief house among the Simeonites. And the name of the Midianitish woman that was slain was Cozbi, the daughter of Zur; he was head over a people, and of a chief house in Midian. And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Vex the Midianites, and smite them: For they vex you with their wiles, wherewith they have beguiled you in the matter of Peor, and in the matter of Cozbi, the daughter of a prince of Midian, their sister, which was slain in the day of the plague for Peor's sake. Numbers 25: 1-18



After thanking Saul, then did Nicodemus continue with Deuteronomy 4. Saying let us continue to read the words of God as recorded by His servant Moses.



Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it. Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people. For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for?



And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day? Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them to thy sons, and thy sons' sons; Specially the day that thou stoodest before the LORD thy God in Horeb, when the LORD said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear My words, that they may learn to fear Me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.



And ye came near and stood under the mountain; and the mountain burned with fire unto the midst of heaven, with darkness, clouds, and thick darkness. And the LORD spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only ye heard a voice. And He declared unto you His covenant, which He commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and He wrote them upon two tables of stone. And the LORD commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go over to possess it.



Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the LORD spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire: Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female, The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air, The likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth: And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.



For the LORD hath taken you, and brought you forth out of the iron furnace, even out of Egypt, to be unto him a people of inheritance, as ye are this day. Furthermore the LORD was angry with me for your sakes, and sware that I should not go over Jordan, and that I should not go in unto that good land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance: But I must die in this land, I must not go over Jordan: but ye shall go over, and possess that good land. Therefore take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the LORD your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, which the LORD thy God hath forbidden thee. For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.



When thou shalt beget children, and children's children, and ye shall have remained long in the land, and shall corrupt yourselves, and make a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, and shall do evil in the sight of the LORD thy God, to provoke Him to anger: I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that ye shall soon utterly perish from off the land whereunto ye go over Jordan to possess it; ye shall not prolong your days upon it, but shall utterly be destroyed.



And the LORD shall scatter you among the nations, and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither the LORD shall lead you. And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men's hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.



With that Nicodemus stopped and looking solemnly at his congregation, said "now hear ye carefully and diligently these next words, for thus has the Lord had Moses to write."



But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find Him, if thou seek Him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto His voice; (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) He will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which He sware unto them. For ask now of the days that are past, which were before thee, since the day that God created man upon the earth, and ask from the one side of heaven unto the other, whether there hath been any such thing as this great thing is, or hath been heard like it? Did ever people hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as thou hast heard, and live? Or hath God assayed to go and take Him a nation from the midst of another nation, by temptations, by signs, and by wonders, and by war, and by a mighty hand, and by a stretched out arm, and by great terrors, according to all that the LORD your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes?



For unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the LORD He is God; there is none else beside Him. Out of heaven He made thee to hear His voice, that He might instruct thee: and upon earth He shewed thee His great fire; and thou heardest His words out of the midst of the fire. And because He loved thy fathers, therefore He chose their seed after them, and brought thee out in His sight with His mighty power out of Egypt; To drive out nations from before thee greater and mightier than thou art, to bring thee in, to give thee their land for an inheritance, as it is this day.



Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD He is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else. Thou shalt keep therefore His statutes, and His commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, for ever. Deuteronomy 4:5-49



Looking ever so slowly at his congregation, Nicodemus called forth the book of Psalms, hearken each of you to these words he said.



Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. For, He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath, and vex them in His sore displeasure.



Now hear this with care and study, for Jehovah has said:



Yet have I set My king upon My holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto Me, Thou art My Son; this day have I begotten thee. Ask of Me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel. Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and ye perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him. Psalm 2



as you contemplate those let me bring to your memory the words of our father king David as he said;



The LORD God the Father said unto my Lord God the Son,



Sit thou at My right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule Thou in the midst of thine enemies. Thy people shall be willing in the day of Thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: Thou hast the dew of Thy youth. The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

The Lord at Thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of His wrath. He shall judge among the heathen, He shall fill the places with the dead bodies; He shall wound the heads over many countries. He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall He lift up the head. Psalm 110, A Psalm of David.



Hear ye now this that I tell you.



God the Father, creator of all things, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, whom He hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also He made the worlds. His Son, who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins and sat down on the right hand of the His Majesty, Jehovah on high;



Suddenly, from out of the first row, amongst the chief seats of the Synagogue, came a soft young voice, the voice of one with the excitement of discovery capable only to the very young men, "but Rabbi, who is this Son you speak of? Are you telling us that the Messiah is here?"



In time my young brother Nicodemus said to his young questioner, in time. For is it not written in our Scriptures: ...

And so begins the book, But Rabbi...

May the Lord be with and bless you all, in the name of Yeshua Creator and God of all things,
amen.



Today's daily Christian thought. Weekend of February 17th & 18th, 2001AD, 6314 AC

Rich.!?

Well once again we see those who oppose any but themselves controlling our financial welfare, screaming how any tax cut but their own, is nothing but a tax cut for the rich. This begs the question, "Who is rich? What is rich?".

Many years ago, when George Bush senior was president, much the same debate took place. At that time, I was employed by the Prudential. So, I asked a man making ten thousand a year if he thought he was rich, of course he said NO!. I then asked him what he figured rich was and he told me that one making twenty five thousand a year is rich. So, I asked a few making twenty five or so thousand a year if they considered themselves rich. To a man they said no and when I asked them what they thought constituted rich they told me figures ranging from one hundred thousand a year to a quarter million dollars a year. By calling those clients of mine that were doctors and lawyers, I asked them if they felt they were rich and not one said yes. Each said no. Again I asked, "So, what would you consider rich?". Their answers ranged from one to five million a year.

Since I had a number of clients that owned large successful businesses, this was not a hard category to question. I guess I spoke to maybe six or eight men. This time one told me that yes indeed he was both rich and content, and really had no personal desire to earn more, but since he had several sons, he realized that he had to grow the business in order for each of his sons to be comfortable with their third of the business after he died or retired. The others gave numbers ranging upwards to hundreds of millions of dollars. This left me with one and only one client -- Ken Irving, the owner of Irving Oil, Irving Lumber, Sunbury Trucking and a whole slew of other businesses. Ken's net worth was, at that time, fifteen billion dollars.

After telling Mr. Irving why I was calling, he answered like this. He indicated that while some, if not most, would consider him beyond rich, he really was not. He said that he had plenty of money and could buy anything he wanted or needed. He went on for a bit, but you get the idea. When I asked just what he considered rich then, he said that the rich are those who can maintain their life style, a life style of comfort and no financial concern, without having to work, or even oversee the operations that bring them that great wealth. When I asked for examples, he gave me names like the Rockefeller's.

What would you consider rich?

For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?

Now ye are full, now ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with you. For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.

We are fools for Christ's sake, but ye are wise in Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye are honourable, but we are despised. Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace; And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it: Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.
1st Corinthians 4:7-12

God Almighty tells us through the pen of the Apostle Paul, that we, the Born Again Christians of the world are the rich ones, for we will reign with Him, forever in heaven. So all those men, earning millions and even billions per year are for the most part right, they are not rich, and unfortunately they were all, for the most part, looking for riches in the wrong places.

Jesus tells us:

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

How nice it is to be back, how I thank God for all of you and I thank God for saving me from a life where I accumulated the wealth of this world. For now, you are my treasures, as is the Word of God.

The Lord Jesus, the Messiah be with and bless you all, may He bless you and care for you, may He be with you and protect you and guide and lead you in His ways.
Amen.

Take it literally.


When you look at a verse of Scripture, don't try to read into it what you want it to say, instead, read it as if God Himself were sitting there saying it to you.

Mark 12: 41-44
41. ¶ And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much. And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing. And He called unto Him His disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury: For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.

These verses are not about tithing, they are about trusting. Trusting in God to take care of her and provide for her. This poor widow wasn't putting in ten percent, she was putting in one hundred percent. Look at the same account but in Luke;

Luke 21: 1-4
1. ¶ And Jesus looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury. And He saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites. And He said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all: For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.

Do you see "...For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had." They have put in the money they could well spare, they have put in of their excess, but she has put in every penny she had. She has put in the money she needed to live on.

What is the Lord telling us here? Is He telling us to tithe 100 percent to the church? No. He is telling us to tithe 100 percent of ourselves to Him, to put our complete faith in Him.

I'm not suggesting that when praying for one that is ill or about to undergo surgery that you don't pray for God's hand upon the surgeon, what I am saying is that when you do pray don't pray doubting, pray with confidence that Jesus will hear you and take care of His, pray as this woman tithed, put your 100 percent faith in the Lord that He will heal that person. Two Scriptural examples.

Acts 28: 1-6
1. ¶ And when they were escaped, then they knew that the island was called Melita. And the barbarous people shewed us no little kindness: for they kindled a fire, and received us every one, because of the present rain, and because of the cold.

3. 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.

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

6. Howbeit they looked when he should have swollen, or fallen down dead suddenly: but after they had looked a great while, and saw no harm come to him, they changed their minds, and said that he was a god.

Notice, Paul didn't yell for a doctor. He didn't call for herbs or suction, he simply had faith in God, he knew that God wasn't done with him yet, that he had not fulfilled the task that God had for him yet, so he knew that God's will would be done and that satan and his pet snake were not strong enough to override God's plan, so Paul just shook the snake off and went about his business of picking up fire wood.

And

Luke 12: 24-34 Jesus said:
24. Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?

27. Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will He clothe you, O ye of little faith?

29. And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

32. Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Don't read between the lines, just read what God is telling you in His word. Think about this, if you are a Born Again Christian, God has a mansion in store for you in heaven, for He has adopted you as His son or daughter. So, why do you put your trust in the things of this world? Why do you put your faith in the doctor, the mechanic, the tax accountant or the senators in the senate? Instead put your faith and trust in God. Go to Him as a son or a daughter, not as a outsider. Are you not more valuable to God than a bird? Will He not care for His son or daughter more than He will a crow? Expect to be tested, but expect also to be treated as one of the family. That is if you are saved, Born Again. If you are unsaved, read John chapter three verses 1-18 and join the family, the family of God.

Oh Lord God in heaven, creator of all heaven and earth, how we thank You for letting us be Yours, oh God in heaven we pray for the strength and courage and faith to put our complete faith and trust in You, for we know that we are Yours and that You love us so much that You have not shed Your blood so that we could be servants, but that we could be Your sons and daughters, Your little brothers and sisters.

We thank you and praise Your name, we thank You for giving this country an other chance, for delivering us from the evil of the Clinton regime and giving us a baby Christian as our president, a man whom we ask You to guide, encourage, teach and direct, a man whom we love as brothers love brothers, and we pray for as a brother prays for a brother.

Oh God Father above, please give us also John Ashcroft as our attorney general. Fight the forces of evil for him Lord, give him strength and put the fear of You in the hearts of his enemies. We ask you Lord to put Your words in John's mouth as he stands before the servants of the evil one. We ask Lord that You will confound the speech of his enemies who are Your enemies as well. For it is not John they despise and hate Lord, it is You.

We ask for Your will to be done, as we know it will be, with our brothers and sisters in this new administration and we pray that you will touch the heart of president Bush's wife and family, bringing them to you as well.

We pray for this ministry, for those men in this country that so love this nation that they put themselves in harms way daily in both the military and our loved and beloved militias. Oh Lord God in heaven above, please let not even one militia member slip through the cracks and fall into ever lasting damnation, give unto them the Light of Life Lord, put a burning desire in them to serve You even more than they desire to serve freedom, for of You is freedom of satan is slavery.

Blessed be the name of Jesus,
In Jesus name we pray.
Amen.

It seems strange to me that we have been on the net for over two years now, not by the generosity of the brethen, but by the patience of our ISP. And for that patience, I thank God Almighty and ask for His blessings upon them

Pray for...


Jesus has told us to pray, pray for our brothers and pray for our enemies.

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.

Matthew 5:44 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;

It is easy to pray for those we love, it is easy for me to pray for my wife, Mac, Steve, and others who attend the church and visit me daily. It is easy to pray for Warren, Lester and all the other preachers who have had such a positive impact on my life. It is easy for me to pray for Nancy and Ovide, whom without, my car would be on blocks. It is easy to pray for President Bush and John Ashcroft, two men who together have taken on the world of evil in the name of the Lord and for His people America.

But, what about Clinton, Snowe, Collins and the woman who aborts her baby? What about those that kill babies for their little body parts, what about those who transport, buy and use those body parts? What about those that enslave Christians, kill Christians and sell their body parts?

Yes my brothers and sisters, it is easy to pray for those we love, but try to remember that we must also pray for those who despitefully use us. Let us pray for both groups the prayer that never fails, let us pray "Thy will be done Lord, not mine, but Thine."

The Lord Jesus, Messiah Yeshua be with you all,
amen.

What verses?


For the longest time now, I keep hearing that there is no prohibition against women being ordained and instead, that there are indeed passages encouraging the ordination of women. I can't find any. While I can find passages dealing with the qualifications of elders, bishops and preachers in general, I have yet to find the first one detailing or even hinting at the qualifications for a woman to be ordained.

But, I can find many a verse dealing with those leftist preachers who claim that it is alright to ordain women and in some instances homosexuals. If your preacher is wishy washy on this, if he refuses to take a stand against homosexuals and or women in the pulpit, then this thought today is for you. For your salvation is your responsibility and you will not get into heaven by claiming to not know the truth because your preacher preached lies.

1Corinthians 14:34&35 ¶ Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

How, may I ask you can a woman preach when she is ordered by God to be silent in church? Not only are they told to be silent, they are commanded not to speak. Paul's writing as dictated to him by God goes on and tells a women that even if she has a question, she is to be silent and when she gets home, she is then to ask her husband. This of course begs the question of how can a lesbian preach when God's word specifically says that a woman is to ask her husband. Now how do we know that Paul's writings are dictated to him by God? Scripture tells us so.

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:

Now, let us take a minute to look at preachers who twist, corrupt and abuse the word of God.

Matthew 7:15-29

and Jesus said:

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? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 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.

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.

24. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

28. And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at His doctrine: For He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
(KJV)

These verses are not extremely hard to understand, Jesus is simply warning us about false preachers, men and women who come and preach other than what is written in God's word, the Holy Bible. They are rather easy to identify, for they preach what the world wants to hear and not what God has had written. They preach what they know God meant to say, not what He did say. You must be wary of them for remember, your salvation is your own responsibility. While a preacher can give you the truth, he or she can also give you a lie. But God's word, the Holy Bible is there for you to explore and read yourself.

You see, there are no Scriptures approving either homosexual preaching or women preaching, and if you are attending a church that says otherwise, ask them to show you Scripture supporting their preaching, for if there is no Scripture to support what they are teaching, then they are teaching a lie. They are not teaching God's word, but man's word. And man's word will take you straight to hell! It was not a man that went up on that cross and shed his blood for you, it was Jesus, the Christ, God in the form of a man walking the earth.

My brothers in the Lord, my fellow militia members, I am not a prophet nor am I the son of a prophet. But one does not need to be a prophet to see the lies being preached from the pulpits. With the likes of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton putting the three letter Rev. before their name and then promoting the socialist, antichrist, pro-abortion, pro-homosexual sentiments of the democratic party, the false prophets are obvious and running wild.

The Lord Jesus, the Messiah, the Christ, had a favorite Apostle, while I wish it were Simon the Zealot, it wasn't it was a fisherman named John. When the Lord speaks through anyone in His book, the Holy Bible, we should look, read, listen and pray for understanding and abide by those words. But when it comes form the Lord's own favorite, we had best pay double attention to it.

Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. 1John 2:18

Jesus, through the dictation taken by John, warns us that we are in fact living in the end times and that there was then and are now antichrist among us. So who are these antichrist? How do we identify them?

Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 1 John 2:22 any and all that deny that Jesus is the Son of God, the Messiah, the Christ, are antichrist. Any that deny the Father and the Son are antichrist.

And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. 1 John 4:3.

For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. 2 John 1:7. Deceivers, what are deceivers? Are they not liars? Are they not preachers who deny that every word in God's book, His Holy Bible are the words of God Himself?

Once again, I am neither a prophet or the son of a prophet, but I tell you that Scripture tells us that we are about to see an onslaught of deceivers fighting this new administration tooth and nail to continue the satan worshiping practices of keeping Christ out of the schools and the public square and keeping legal and tax payer funded the offering of innocent blood to satan through abortion and by his high priest the abortionist.

The Lord Jesus, the Messiah, be with you all and pray for that baby Christian, our brother in the Lord, George Bush, in the oval office. And pray for our brother in the Lord, John Ashcroft as the leftist satan worshipers unleash their collective venom and hatred against the Lord, at him.

And I ask you to pray for me and this ministry as well, we are, to the best of my knowledge, the only Christian outreach to the militias of the country.

Amen.





Friday January 19th- Sunday January 21st, 2001AD, 6314 AC

A baby Christian.


I know of a young man who is in desperate need of prayer, he is a new Christian, a baby Christian. Kind of like you and I were in those first few days, months, and even years of our having first accepted the Lord Jesus as Lord and God. This young man is being tempted by satan and is under constant attack by satan. He is being tempted with money, power, women, booze and every other sin you can imagine.

He is in dire need of our prayers and I know that you will stand fast with me in praying for him, for if we, the Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians do not pray for him, who will? President Elect George Bush is indeed a Christian. A baby Christian, yes, but a washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian just the same. The more I watch, read and listen to the words and actions of president elect George Bush, the more convinced I am that he is indeed Born Again.

Now I think it is important for all of you to remember that I did not support George Bush. I openly and unashamedly supported Pat Buchanan and Howard Phillips, but neither of them won. He who won is George Bush and in careful examination, I can see that God's will has been done.

thank you Lord
So, if the Lord Yeshua raptured His church this very instant, George would be standing with us in glory. My question to you. Would you go up to him and say, "I was praying for you"? We need to cut this baby Christian a bit of slack. Aren't the likes of Kennedy, Boxer, Frank and the Clinton baal worshipers beating up on him enough? Aren't the left wing extremists in the press beating up on him hard enough for you?

We need to go to prayer asking the Father in the name of the Son to help president elect Bush through this. We need to ask for Divine intervention for him and we need to pray and ask the Lord to help Mr. Bush get off of milk toast and onto hard meat fast.

When Clinton was the president, we prayed for rescue from him, we prayed that the Lord would reach out and soften the heart of the heathen in the oval office. It is time for us to pray and thank God for putting a Born Again Believer in the oval office and we need to thank God Almighty for his appointment of John Ashcroft as Attorney General. We need to stop beating up on President Elect George Bush and start thanking God for him. For as God Himself has told us:
Genesis 12:3 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.

When God appoints a leader, when He anoints one, we had best be with that one and not against him. Until George Bush proves us wrong, by doing something that proves that he is not Born Again and that he only used that claim to garner votes, then we must be with him for he is our brother.

John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

John 15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

John 15:17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.

Romans 13:8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.

1 Thessalonians 4:9 ¶ But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.

1 Peter 1:22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:

1 John 3:11 ¶ For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.

1 John 3:23 ¶ And this is His commandment, That we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as He gave us commandment.

1 John 4:7 ¶ Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

1 John 4:11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

1 John 4:12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and His love is perfected in us.

And just who are our brothers?

Matthew 12:46-50
46. ¶ While Jesus yet talked to the people, behold, His mother and His brethren stood without, desiring to speak with Him. Then one said unto Him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.

48. But Jesus answered and said unto him that told Him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? And He stretched forth His hand toward His disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.
(KJV)

George Bush is our brother in the Lord, we are to stop beating up on him immediately! We are to pray for him as we would want others to pray for us if we were in his shoes.

Oh Lord God Almighty, creator of heaven and earth, please be with our brother, Your child George Bush, help him to find the courage to do what is right in Your sight, help him to stand by Your child and our brother John Ashcroft in these trying days and the days to come. Shelter him from the evils that abound in our government, help him and guide him in cleaning up the cesspool that we as a nation have become, let him be your David with John at his right hand. We pray and ask these things and more in the name of Your Son, our Lord, our Saviour Messiah Yeshua.

Amen.

1961-2001, 40 years


It was just about January in the year 1961, I was in my junior year at Framingham High when I first heard the term communist Anti God liberals. I had an English teacher that year who had survived the death march of Bataan as a US Marine, there were a couple of things this guy really hated. Communists and Anti Christians topped the list. The democrats had taken firm control of the house and senate and a liberal leftist by the name of Jack Kennedy had beaten my uncle in a race for congress. This Kennedy, who would now be president. Had a great number of men and women who knew the truth about hi. while he served in Naval intelligence and had an affair with a woman whose husband who was a nazi and had close ties to Hitler. Anyhow, it was this time forty years ago that liberalism took control of our government and the Anti Christ forces started the eviction of the Lord from the public square and school room.

Numbers 14: 26-35
26. And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, "how long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me."

28. "Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you: Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me, doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun. But your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land which ye have despised. But as for you, your carcases, they shall fall in this wilderness."

33. "And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until your carcases be wasted in the wilderness. After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise. I the LORD have said, I will surely do it unto all this evil congregation, that are gathered together against me: in this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die."

It has been forty years, most if not all of those who took an active role and got the leftist Anti Christ communists in office are indeed dead, and their carcasses are in the ground rotting and worm infested. Will now the Lord God repent and turn His face back towards us? Will he use the Bush administration to turn this nation back to Him, to rid the nation of the likes of the Kennedys, the NEA, the Snowes, the Collinses, the Clintons and the log cabin republicans? Perhaps, just perhaps, but not unless we that are His go to Him in prayer, asking to be rescued. Has not the Lord already disgraced one who claims to serve Him, but in fact serves Baal, Jesse Jackson? Has not the Lord already placed in a position to be our Gideon one John Ashcroft? Yes, the Lord has turned His face back to us, let us now rejoice and continue to worship and praise His name. Let us continue to be the obedient sons and daughters that we should be and let us continue to pray for John, the President Elect and the entire Bush administration. And let us pray that now, the IRS will audit abortionists and abortion mills.

In Jesus name we pray. Amen.




Wednesday January 17th, 2001AD, 6314 AC

Just a couple of thoughts.


Do you think that perhaps, just perhaps, God had John Ashcroft in mind when He had Paul pen chapter twelve of the book of Romans?

Romans chapter 12

to hear Romans 12, in Real Audio only, click here.

1. ¶ I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

4. For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.

9. Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.

14. Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.

19. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
(KJV)

Yes. The more I read Romans 12, the more I realize how this chapter seems to be written directly to our brother in the Lord, the son of a God fearing preacher, one of the most honest men to ever walk the floors of politics, my fellow servant of the Lord, John Ashcroft.

Yes Lord be with John this day, give him the strength and wisdom to prevail and to keep his temper, let him respond to the harshness and venom of those who lie and twist his record and hate his faith in You, not with venom of his own but, with: Proverbs 15: 1-3
A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger. The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness. The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. Yes Lord give John the strength to take comfort in the knowledge that Your will will be done!

And for how long have I and others been praying that God would do to the abortionist and their political power house supporters what the abortionists do to the baby in the womb? Five years, six years, longer perhaps? Well, cancer is a disfiguring, painful, terminal disease. Bill Clinton has just been diagnosed with skin cancer. Don't jump up and yell, "praise GOD!" Instead just say, "Your will be done Lord".

May God forgive His nation and people the US of A and may He give us another chance, may He work His will within and through President elect George Bush and may He give Mr. Bush the strength to stand behind his God fearing, Born Again, washed in the Blood of the Lamb, child of the Lord, John Ashcroft.

The Lord Yeshua be with you all,
Amen.

Man death can be tough...


Yesterday my wife, I and a couple of others from the church drove down to Biddeford, Maine and attended a funeral for a young woman who leaves behind a husband and 6 kids. She died suddenly and unexpectedly in a car accident just a couple of days before. Her dad, the pastor of her church, did the service.

Back in May of 1993, Cecily and I buried our youngest son Andrew. Andrew, at age 18 had died suddenly in a car accident also. Eight years later and I still find it difficult to attend the funeral of one whose parents are doing the burying. But, over the years I have come to realize some things regarding the lose of a loved on.

It's all right to cry, for Jesus cried at the death of a loved one as well. Even though the Lord knew that He would be joining Lazarus shortly, He cried.
John 10:35 Jesus wept.

Read with me, John 10:1-46
1. ¶ Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.) Therefore his sisters sent unto Jesus, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick. When Jesus heard that, He said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.

5. Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. When He had heard therefore that he was sick, Jesus abode two days still in the same place where He was. Then after that saith He to His disciples, Let us go into Judaea again.

8. His disciples say unto Him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again? Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world. But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him. These things said He: and after that He saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep. Then said His disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well. Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that He had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.

14 . Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead. And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him. Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellow disciples, Let us also go, that we may die with Him. Thomas thought that the Jews would kill Jesus if the Lord went into Judea to visit Mary and Martha at Lazarus's grave.

17. ¶ Then when Jesus came, He found that Lazarus had lain in the grave four days already. Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off: And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother. Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met Him: but Mary sat still in the house. Then said Martha unto Jesus, "Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou 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: 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. As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto Him. Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met Him. 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, 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! 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? 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. Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? 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 He thus had spoken, He cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

44. And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go. Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on Him. But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees...
(KJV)

So, yes, there is nothing wrong with crying and feeling great lose at the lose of a loved one, for even God Himself felt.

33. ¶ When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, He groaned in the spirit, and was troubled, ... and then the Lord wept, as in verse 35.

But when one dies, we often feel more than loss, we feel anger, we want to kick things, throw things, break things. And we can, for look at what God the Father did when God the Son, our own Yeshua gave up the ghost while hanging on that cross.

Matthew 27: 45-54
45. Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

47. Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias. And straightway one of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave Him to drink. The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save Him.

50. ¶ Jesus, when He had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.

51. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, and came out of the graves after His resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. 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."

When Jesus gave up the Ghost, God the Father, caused an earthquake of such magnitude that it broke rocks and so scared the Roman Centurion, the captain of the unit that did the crucifixion of the Lord, that he accepted that Jesus was in fact the Son of God. Other gospel and historical accounts tell us that it was dark as midnight without a moon, that it was raining a cold hard wind driven rain, that it was eery and scary, that the earthquake was so bad that it ripped rocks apart, and that God Himself reached down and ripped the veil of the temple from the top to the bottom.

So, yes, you can get upset, you can yell, you can scream, you can vent your emotions. Just don't blame God for the things done to man by either satan or other men. For our Lord is not the lord of death, but the Lord of Life.

The Lord Yeshua be with you all today, may He bless you and protect you and may He be with John Ashcroft today as the heathens do their worse with and to him. For they who work for and worship the darkness fear and hate any who will honor the Lord while serving in high office.

May God bless you all,
Amen.

Weekend January 13th&14th, 2001AD, 6314 AC

For wives only!


This weekend, I am going to deal with wives, I don't even want husbands reading this! Men, go do something, take the kids and let your wife read this alone, give her time to think, yell, scream and jump up and down, so take the kids out for lunch or something.

Now ladies, it is time you understood something; those who preach, teach, write and speak about male female equality are out to destroy your soul and your marriage! Nothing in God's creation has two heads, nothing, nor does a marriage. More and more I see good Christian families torn apart by kids playing one parent against another, this can only happen when a family is divided. It can only happen when the mother thinks she can and does over rule the father of the family.

You need to let go, you need to heed God's word.

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.

You know about child birth and how painful it can be, you accept that as a fact of life and you understand that it is because of Eve's being deceived by satan. Why do you ignore the second part of this command or curse if you would prefer, given by God Almighty? and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. God Himself placed within you a desire to be subservient to your husband, satan tries to turn that and turn good marriages bad. How better for satan to do that then to divide and conquer?

When the Jews accused Jesus of being either the devil or in league with him, Jesus responded by saying these words.

Matthew 12:25
And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:

Mark 3:24&25
And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

Luke 11:17
But He, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.
(KJV)

Satan may be the great deceiver, but he is not stupid. What worked against Eve, he knows can and oft does work against the descendants of Eve, you. Satan knows that if he can get you thinking that you are equal with your husband, that your emotions and mother's love for the kids, will easily put you at odds with your husband, and that, he knows, can and oft times does lead to a broken Christian marriage.

1Corinthians 11:3
But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

Ephesians 5:23
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.

1 Timothy 2: 9-15
¶ 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. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.

Ladies, you do not have to understand every word of Scripture quoted above to get the knowledge that you are to be submissive and under subjection to your husband in all things. And that includes bowing to his decisions concerning the kids.

Ladies, do not let satan do to you what he did to Eve, do not follow in the footsteps of Eve, follow instead in the footsteps of Sarah, Esther and Ruth.

How did satan deceive Eve? Much the same way that modern feminists, liberal preachers, and politicians deceive you today;

Genesis 3:1-6
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 Eve 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.

4 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. See it? See the lie, see the temptation that satan is putting before Eve? "and ye shall be as gods"

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.

Let's look at those same verses using today's temptation of equality amongst the sexes. And how sataqn would and does word his attack today. Can you not hear the liberal preacher or the feminist saying the words of satan in green below? Are the words in pink, not what many of you would say today?

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 are equal, has God not said, honor thy mother and thy father?

2 And the woman said unto the serpent, yes, God has said we are equal and that children are to honor us both, but God has also said that I must be submissive to my husband.

4.And the agent of satan said unto the woman, You shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye realize that you are as smart or smarter than your husband, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be equals or his boss. Do you not remember the better grades you got than him? Do you not remember that you went to more college than he?

6 ¶ And when the woman saw that being equal or boss was good for her ego, therefore she told her husband that she could take care of the kids and that he could rest. And very soon, the kids ignored the dad and came to the mother in all things and satan's minions said "it is good". And the divorce rate went up. And up and up.

The words of Eve are in pink, the words of satan in sickly green and the Words of Almighty God in purple.

Ladies, don't let your house be a house divided, when you and your husband disagree on something, especially in matters dealing with the children or anything that is so important that it can cause a real rift in your lives and your marriage, submit to his decision. He will not always be right, not in your eyes nor in his eyes, but only one head can be in each body and as Christ is the head of the church, so is your husband the head of your family.

God bless you.

The Lord God be with you ladies, and may you obey God and your husband, may you evict satan and his minions from your mind and heart and adopt instead the words of the Lord God Almighty, creator of heaven and earth and all things in and on both.
Amen.

Help the cream rise.


It is better to give... Than to throw away. We have found a real need among home schooling parents for used computer parts. Children being Christian home schooled and those attending Christian schools are both the backbone and the future of our nation and our rights.

Parents who school at home give up at least one income, they buy their own books and supplies and more often then not, run a very tight budget in order to survive. You may be able to help. Since the price of computers and computer parts have come down so dramatically, many now find it better to simply throw away the old computer rather than trying to sell it. Let's face it, with machines with 700 plus chips, 64 megs of ram, 56k modems and 17 inch monitors selling for under $700.00 how much can you really expect to get for that old 486 anyhow? Now while it isn't worth a lot to you and is really worth less than a hundred dollars or so, it is worth a ton to a home schooling family on a tight budget. As are such things as working printers, modems, sound cards, etc. Granted you can't use this gift as a tax deduction, but you will be helping the cream to rise to the top.

If you have an old computer, 486 dx 66 or above lying around, or have a sound card, video card, modem 28K or above or any other working computer part lying around and have the necessary disk and instructions to load it, please send them to us. We could also use original copies of educational and business software such as Word and Word Perfect, Windows 95 and 98, and Bible Programs.

With a new administration coming in and with an attorney general that will fight corruption within the government, we feel it is no longer necessary to insure packages, just put them in a box or envelope and send them the cheapest way possible.

Matthew 10:40,41,&42
He that receiveth you receiveth Me, and he that receiveth Me receiveth Him that sent Me. He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.

But

Whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward. (KJV)

It's not a cup of water, it is a computer, but if you give it, not looking for a tax write off or thank you's in this world, and if you are Saved, the rewards you'll receive are those in heaven as guaranteed by the Blood of Jesus.

The Lord be with you and bless you and please this day, pray for John Ashcroft, George Bush, the ne administration and all those working so hard to home school their children. God's blessings upon you all and may He bless those who bless you and deal with those who despitefully use you.
Amen



Tuesday January 9th, 2001AD, 6314 AC

So, how do you know you are Saved?


Try this for a little test of yourself and your faith. If you are truly Saved, truly Born Again, then you have not only invited the Lord to live within you, but you have also accepted Him as your Lord, your Savior, your Master, your God. You have put your complete faith in Him. And you have come to accept that He would never lie to you, never under any circumstances. For God is not the God of lies, satan is the god of lies.

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. In this verse Jesus is talking to the leaders of the Jews, He is explaining to them why they do not believe on Him, for they are not His, but satan's, they have chosen to follow satan rather than Him. For they are believing lies, not Him, in the end of the verse the Lord makes it very clear that lies come form satan not God.

So what does this have with proving your salvation? Follow with me.

When you became a true Born Again washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian, you also accepted this as absolute fact:

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: Every word in the Bible has been dictated by God and is absolute truth. If you are truly Born Again, you know, understand and believe that to be absolute truth. For while we may not understand everything in the Bible, we know that God breathed every last word, that it is not a work of men, but a dictation of God.

Genesis 1:1
¶ In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

John 1:1-3
¶ In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made. The word of God, the Holy Bible teaches us that God made the world and everything else, in the gospel of John God goes on and tells us that nothing but nothing was made anywhere, heaven, earth, nowhere, except it was made by Him.

Satan's minions teach us that the world evolved.

Do you believe in evolution? If so, you may want to reexamine your relationship with the Lord, for those who believe in evolution are claiming that God lied in His book, and that is not possible.

Are you a woman who believes the lie that women can do anything men can do? That women can lead? That women can preach? Then you need to reexamine your relationship with the Lord thy God also, for you are spitting in God's face when you accept the notion that you are to be anything but submissive to your husband.

Genesis 3:16
¶ 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. God tells you in His word that He has, because of the error made by Eve, both made childbirth painful and caused you to desire to serve your husband and accept your husbands rule over you.

Satan through his minions in the press, the liberal pulpits, politics, the UN, the schools and the feminist child murdering abortion movement, tells you that you are equal, that your body is your own, that you can do anything that a man can, that you can kill the babe in your womb. Who do you believe, God or satan?

May the Lord God creator of the universe, creator of truth abide within you, may you turn to Him in this time of lies and peril. May you pray diligently for the salvation of you and yours. May you go to Him on bended knees and ask Him to guide protect and lead this new government of ours, may he protect the baby in the womb from those who seek to kill him or her and may He do to those who would harm the baby in the womb what they would do to the baby.

May our Lord God in heaven be with you this day and may you continue to pray for this ministry, we are in desperate need of God's help.
Amen.



Weekend January 6th & 7th, 2001AD, 6314 AC

To forgive is...


Let's get back to ways in which you know you are saved.

Matthew 5:16
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. When you do good works, you are not doing them, if you are Born Again, for your own glory, but for the glory of God, so that others may see what you have done, thank God and come to Him through your good works and example. Therefore when you forgive your enemies it becomes apparent that something is working within you. No one goes to one holding a grudge for twenty years and wants to find out how they did it so that they can do it too. No, they come to those who they think should be hating each other and say, "I thought you guys were the worst of enemies after what he did to you. What happened?" With that "what happened?", you have the opportunity to witness, to tell of how the Lord changed your life so that you could forgive. That is if your good works of forgiveness are of God and not of yourself.. But then again, without the help and intervention of the Lord, you probably would not have forgiven your enemy anyhow.

Luke 6:44
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. So, how do you know you are Saved? Well here the Lord tells us that we are all known by our works. I know of a couple who claim to be Christians, yet they have held a senseless grudge for a half year now. Is it right for me to judge? Well yes, you and I can judge, when we judge by the standards put forth by the Word of God, Jesus. When you forgive and I mean really hold no animosity in your hearts for them, oh you still may be amazed that they could have done such a thing, but you simply do not wish them any harm or try to avoid them, this is a sign that you are Saved, that you are truly Born Again.

Now you may be asking yourself, how do I figure that the act of forgiveness is "works"? Well, let us look at Scripture.

John 15:14
Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

Has not the Lord commanded us to forgive?

Matthew 6:15
But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. If you do not forgive those who do you wrong, GOD will not forgive you for your sins. Now, if God does not forgive you, are you a Born Again Christian? Of course not. And if you are not Born Again, can you even see the inside of heaven, never mind reside there through out all eternity?

John 3:3 ...Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Now, if you are not spending eternity in heaven where then?

So, yes my brothers and sisters, forgiveness is works, works is not just missionary work in Africa, or painting the church, holding bake sales, visiting the widows, poor, homeless, and those in hospitals and prisons, it is also simple acts, like that of forgiveness. For Jesus has commanded us to forgive and then told us that we are His friends as long as we do His commandments. What He commands us to do are the things that we do as work to be His servants, friends, Born Again Christians.

And why is so important for us to be His, to be Born Again? Well of course the reward of spending all eternity with the Lord, the Father and the Holy Spirit in heaven is one reason, but there is a reason why for our time on earth as well.

John 14:12
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.

Take the Word of God literally my brothers and sisters, pray to the Father in the name of the Son and help turn this nation around. Get on your knees and ask the Lord to end abortion, help and guide and protect the new administration, to be with John Ashcroft in the office of Attorney General. Thank God for giving the prisoners of the Cumberland County Jail in Portland, Maine, a Born Again Christian as a Chaplin. Oh how wonderful and all powerful is the Lord we serve. How blessed we are to be able to call on Him knowing whatever we ask for will be answered. Praise God. Don't hold back, go to the Lord in prayers, knowing that you can and will do as mighty a works as the Lord did and even more and bigger works if we will simply:

Matthew 17:20
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

John 15:14
Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

John 13:34
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

John 15:12
This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

John 15:17
These things I command you, that ye love one another.

Can you love someone and not find it in your heart to forgive them? I think not! So, those who claim to be Born Again and are able to forgive are showing through their good works of following the commandments of the Lord through forgiving that they are indeed Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb and truly Saved.

May our God continue to bless you, me and the country. May He be with, guide, protect and hold close John Ashcroft and the Bush administration.
Amen.



Friday January 5th, 2001AD, 6314 AC

2nd Corinthians 5:20


2nd Corinthians 5:20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.

Let's look closely at this verse. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, when Paul says we, the we he is referring to is those who are Born Again Christians, for we of the Saved Born Again Christian community are in fact ambassadors for Christ. Now how would we know that we are in fact ambassadors for the Lord? What does an ambassador do? Does he not put forth the government he represents positions? Does he not defend the country he represents? Does he not in fact represent that country? And does he not speak for that country carrying with his words the full authority of that government? Has he not been instructed in what to say and do?

And so have we.
Mark 16:15 And Jesus said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Who is Jesus telling to go and preach the gospel to every creature? Only the apostles? No, not only the Apostles, but all who have come to believe on Him by the words of the Apostles. Read John 17.

as though God did beseech you by us or in today's language, as though God did seek you earnestly and diligently by us. So, who is the us? We who are Born Again.

we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God, we pray for you in Christs place, so be reconciled to God.

So, in this verse, we learn that we are ambassadors for Christ, who God uses to earnestly seek and pray for others. And that my brothers is what today's thought deals with.

Today I ask you as fellow ambassadors to pray for one of the brethren, a man with a wife and an 11 year old son, a man whose wife and son are afraid, a man who is in the hospital and is very sick.

Today, my fellow followers of the Lord Yeshua, I ask you to pray for Andy, his wife Cathy, and their son DJ. I am not a doctor, and medical terms are not my cup of soup, but, as I was visiting Andy in the hospital, I watched a nurse get alarmed, Andy's face turn beet red, him put on oxygen and his blood sugar rose dramatically. All this in a matter of under four hours.

I beseech you to stop what you are doing and bring Andy before the Lord in prayer.

May the Lord bless you and reward you for caring enough to stop and pray for our brother in the Lord, Andy. And may you continue to bring John Ashcroft, George Bush and our new government before the Lord as well.

God bless you all,
Amen



Thursday January 4th, 2001AD, 6314 AC

Another way to know...




Again today, we are going to look at ways to know that you are Saved. Forgiveness. Sounds simple right? But is it for one unsaved? Look around, listen as the unsaved talk about one another. Still think forgiveness is easy? Even for those who are Saved, at times it is difficult, but being Saved makes forgiving possible.



Matthew 6:

:12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

: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.



When you look at those verses, you can see that the Lord is very serious about us forgiving.



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.



How often are we to forgive our fellow Christians? Not seven times, but 490 times.



So, how do you know you're Saved for sure? Well, do you really forgive those who do you wrong? I'm not asking you if you forgive those who harm your wife or kids, I'm asking you if you forgive those who hurt you. Not just the ones that are so big that if you yelled at them or hit them they would cream you. But do you find forgiveness in your heart for those that you could cream. If the answer is yes, you do forgive, then you are Saved.



For it is only through the Lord Jesus living within us as the Holy Spirit that we can and do forgive the corrupt cop that gives us a ticket and the little wise guy who whispers behind your back. It is only through the grace of God that we are Saved and it is only though His presence that our lives are changed to the extent that we can forgive and pray for those who despitefully use us.



Matthew 5:44

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;



The Lord did not say you wouldn't get mad, so if you get mad, don't doubt your salvation, but if even after praying you find weeks later that you still can not forgive, then you may have a problem. But if after you pray and ask for help forgiving someone, especially a brother or sister in the Lord, and the very next morning when you awake, you find you have just about forgotten all about it. Well, my brother, you are Saved!



The Lord be with you all and may you recommit yourself to the Lord this very day, as you go to the Lord in prayer. Asking Him to bless and protect, you and yours, this ministry, our new president, his government, John Ashcroft and the hard task he has ahead. Why not use that same prayer time to recommit yourself t o the Lord Jesus. And while you're at it, would you also pray that if Eric Rudolph is yet alive, as I suspect he is, that he will find a way to contact Attorney General designate John Ashcroft and make arrangements to turn himself in for trial.



May our Lord and Saviour bless each and every one of you, may He give you His peace and may He help you to deliver His word to the unsaved around you and to the solid Christian who needs a bit of encouragement.

Amen.



Wednesday January 3rd, 2001AD, 6314 AC

Dear pastor, ...


Yesterday I answered a question dealing with ACP's positions. I think that over the next week or two I'll use the daily thought as a way to answer other questions asked. Some of the questions take very little time to answer, yet, can become real Bible lessons.

One of the most common of all questions is "How do I know if I am truly Saved?"

Jesus left us just short of a zillion ways to know that we are truly Saved, let us look at a few today. Let's start with this, did you do what the Bible teaches about being Saved?

Did you come to Jesus and do these three things? Did you accept Jesus as the true Messiah? By that I mean, not do you simply believe in Jesus, for even the devil acknowledges Him, but did you put your complete trust in Him, do you believe not in Him, but on Him. The difference is this. To believe in is to simply acknowledge that Jesus existed, well history has never recorded more to prove the existence of anyone than it has the Lord Jesus. To believe on is to have such true belief that you put your life in His hands, your future in His hands, your health in His hands. You in His hands. That you open your heart and accept with joy the fact that from that date forward He will abide within you as the Holy Spirit, that He will be leading your life and helping you to make decisions. Have you done all of those things?

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 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 14:16
And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever;

John 15:4
Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in Me.

John 15:6
If a man abide not in Me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

1 Corinthians 3:16 & 17
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

1 Corinthians 6:19
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?

So in answer, let me ask a question, have you totally accepted Jesus as God? Have you invited Him to dwell within you? Have you given your body over to be the temple of the Holy Spirit?

Next, have you asked the Lord to forgive your sins? Have you told Him that you are truly sorry for the things you have said, done, thought and even dreamt? Did you mean it?

Matthew 4:17

From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Mark 1:15

And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Now, look here how clearly the Lord tells us that repentance is absolutely necessary to salvation.

Luke 13; 1-5
1. ¶ There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

4. Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

In the above verses Jesus has given example of horrible things, in the first example, some Galilaeans either were part of a heathen sacrifice, literally having their blood used in the sacrifice or they ate food that had been sacrificed by heathens, probably pig. Yet the Lord tells them in both instances that unless all repent they will go to hell. For you do not perish in heaven, only hell. Acts 2:38
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Acts 3:19
Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;

Have you really repented of your sins? Have you really asked the Lord to forgive you? If so, let us look at the last and for some the hardest thing that you MUST do or have done to be Saved.

Matthew 10:32
Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father which is in heaven.

Romans 10:9
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Just how import is it to confess that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God?

1 John 4:15
Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.

And what about those who skip this part?

2 John 1:7
For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

And that my brothers and sisters in the Lord ends today's thought, may He whom we serve, fear and love abide within you and help you to be strong in your Christianity. May He bless you and keep you and may He bless and give strength to John Ashcroft, George Bush and the new government. May the Lord place cold hard fear in the hearts of the abortionist and baal worshipers. And may He bless you and yours this day.
Amen.

So who is this Simon we so love?


I guess there is more than one who oft times wonders who would be the Apostle we would most identify with here at the Church for the American Christian Patriot.

Matthew 10: 2-4
Now the names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him.

Humm, there are two called Simon.

Mark 3:13-19
Then Jesus appointed twelve, that they might be with Him and that He might send them out to preach, and to have power to heal sicknesses and to cast out demons: Simon, to whom He gave the name Peter; James the son of Zebedee and John the brother of James, to whom He gave the name Boanerges, that is, "Sons of Thunder"; Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, Thaddaeus, Simon the Cananite; and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him.

But now look with me at Luke 6:13-16:
And when it was day, Jesus, the Son of God, called His disciples to Himself; and from them He chose twelve whom He also named apostles: Simon, whom He also named Peter, and Andrew his brother; James and John; Philip and Bartholomew; Matthew and Thomas; James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called the Zealot; Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot who also became a traitor.

There it is in Luke, Simon called the Zealot. While many dictionaries make Zealots out to be something less than good, think about this, Jesus choose one to be part of his inner twelve. My Bible Dictionary declares them to be patriots that rebelled against the wrongs committed by the Romans against the Jews and later the Christians. They are considered super patriots, men who fought under the banner of God first, family and then country.

ACP's primary preaching function is as an evangelical outreach not to the drunks of the world, nor to these who have killed their babies by abortion. We don't turn our backs on the druggy on the street nor the criminal in jail, but our primary function is to reach out to the Militias throughout the country. For I believe it would be terrible for any one who loves this country to have spend eternity in hell with the likes of Bill Clinton, his wife and many of his predecessors over the last 150 years or so.

The church's positions are quite clear, we are Pro-Christ, pro-life and pro-constitution. While I would welcome the opportunity to preach to Bill Clinton, Bill Cohen and Janet Reno, they would not be eligible to be members, for their hatred of all three of our basic principals and beliefs are apparent. Join with me in twice daily prayer that president elect George Bush will never make that list. Pray also diligently that the one member of president elect Bush's staff, who would not only be eligible, but as welcomed as his father welcomed Lester Kringle in his revival tent, Attorney General designate John Ashcroft.

For you see, as John's father was instrumental in bringing Rev. Lester Kringle into the ministry of God, so was Lester instrumental in bringing me into the ministry of serving the Lord Jesus, the CHRIST.

Also pray that once John is the Attorney General and has a had six months or so to settle in, that Eric Rudolph will turn himself in, for now Eric, whom I have been praying for, can now get a fair trial and God help the fed who shoots him.

The Lord be with you all.
Amen.

New Year's day 2001, 6314 years since God created everything


What a way to start the new year. Monday, the first day of the week, is also Monday, January 1st, 2001. Well, I guess if you're going to start a new year and a new millennium, you might as well start it at the beginning of a new week.

While the rest of the world concentrates on making new year's resolutions, let us concentrate on God's hand at work instead. During the last campaign, we saw the mainstream media and the leftist organizations such as pro abortion and homosexuals determine who would be the banner carrier in the Republican and Democratic party. They, through the use of money and the press, anointed George Bush and Albert Arnold Gore. Finally, thirty five days after the election, their second choice was declared the winner. Governor George Bush was given the mantel of President elect. Now President elect Bush is naming his cabinet and closest and highest ranking national appointments. And it is becoming more and more obvious that what the leftist meant for evil, God is turning into good.

Once there was a young boy named Joseph, the first son of Jacob's favored wife Rachel, the grandson of Isaac, the great grandson of Abraham. Joseph was by far Jacob's favored son and was also highly gifted and loved of God. As a result, his older half brothers, sons of Jacob's wife whom he was tricked into marrying did not like him very much.

Jacob, like his father before him and his grandfather before him, was a shepherd, a keeper of flocks. As such, he, having huge flocks needed to at times send his sons and his flocks miles from home looking for grazing for the animals. On one of these occasions this happened.

Genesis chapter 37
1 ¶ Now Jacob dwelt in the land where his father was a stranger, in the land of Canaan. This is the history of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brothers. And the lad was with the sons of Bilhah and the sons of Zilpah, his father's wives; and Joseph brought a bad report of them to his father. Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age. Also he made him a tunic of many colors. But when his brothers saw that their father loved him more than all his brothers, they hated him and could not speak peaceably to him.

5 ¶ Now Joseph had a dream, and he told it to his brothers; and they hated him even more. So he said to them, "Please hear this dream which I have dreamed: There we were, binding sheaves in the field. Then behold, my sheaf arose and also stood upright; and indeed your sheaves stood all around and bowed down to my sheaf."

8 And his brothers said to him, "Shall you indeed reign over us? Or shall you indeed have dominion over us?" So they hated him even more for his dreams and for his words. Then he dreamed still another dream and told it to his brothers, and said, "Look, I have dreamed another dream. And this time, the sun, the moon, and the eleven stars bowed down to me." So he told it to his father and his brothers; and his father rebuked him and said to him, "What is this dream that you have dreamed? Shall your mother and I and your brothers indeed come to bow down to the earth before you?" And his brothers envied him, but his father kept the matter in mind.

12 ¶ Then his brothers went to feed their father's flock in Shechem. And Jacob, who is also called Israel said to Joseph, "Are not your brothers feeding the flock in Shechem? Come, I will send you to them." So Jopseph said to him, "Here I am." Then Jacob said to Joseph, "Please go and see if it is well with your brothers and well with the flocks, and bring back word to me." So he sent him out of the Valley of Hebron, and he went to Shechem.

15 Now a certain man found him, and there he was, wandering in the field. And the man asked him, saying, "What are you seeking?" So he said, "I am seeking my brothers. Please tell me where they are feeding their flocks." And the man said, "They have departed from here, for I heard them say, 'Let us go to Dothan.'" So Joseph went after his brothers and found them in Dothan.

18 Now when they saw him afar off, even before he came near them, they conspired against him to kill him. Then they said to one another, "Look, this dreamer is coming! Come therefore, let us now kill him and cast him into some pit; and we shall say, 'Some wild beast has devoured him.' We shall see what will become of his dreams!" But Reuben heard it, and he delivered him out of their hands, and said, "Let us not kill him." And Reuben said to them, "Shed no blood, but cast him into this pit which is in the wilderness, and do not lay a hand on him" - Reuben said this so that he might deliver him out of their hands, and bring him back to his father.

23 ¶ So it came to pass, when Joseph had come to his brothers, that they stripped Joseph of his tunic, the tunic of many colors that was on him. Then they took him and cast him into a pit. And the pit was empty; there was no water in it. And they sat down to eat a meal. Then they lifted their eyes and looked, and there was a company of Ishmaelites, coming from Gilead with their camels, bearing spices, balm, and myrrh, on their way to carry them down to Egypt. So Judah said to his brothers, "What profit is there if we kill our brother and conceal his blood? Come and let us sell him to the Ishmaelites, and let not our hand be upon him, for he is our brother and our flesh." And his brothers listened.

28 Then Midianite traders passed by; so the brothers pulled Joseph up and lifted him out of the pit, and sold him to the Ishmaelites for twenty shekels of silver. And they took Joseph to Egypt. Then Reuben returned to the pit, and indeed Joseph was not in the pit; and he tore his clothes. And he returned to his brothers and said, "The lad is no more; and I, where shall I go?"

31 ¶ So they took Joseph's tunic, killed a kid of the goats, and dipped the tunic in the blood. Then they sent the tunic of many colors, and they brought it to their father and said, "We have found this. Do you know whether it is your son's tunic or not?" And Jacob recognized it and said, "It is my son's tunic. A wild beast has devoured him. Without doubt Joseph is torn to pieces." Then Jacob tore his clothes, put sackcloth on his waist, and mourned for his son many days. And all his sons and all his daughters arose to comfort him; but he refused to be comforted, and he said, "For I shall go down into the grave to my son in mourning." Thus his father wept for him.

36 Now the Midianites had sold him in Egypt to Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh and captain of the guard.
(NKJV)

So here is Joseph sold into slavery in Egypt, no longer the favored son of one of the richest men around, now just a slave. Satan and Joseph's bothers meant this as evil against Joseph, but God had other ideas. And so we should pray it is with President George Bush. Those who funded his campaign, the liberal homosexuals, the leftist abortionist and one world government sponsors, mean for George to rule for them as their puppet. They mean for George to be like his father and the previous five administrations. They mean for George's government to be one opposed to the Rights given to us by God and the Constitution. They mean for George's government to be against the baby in the womb, a government that will continue to offer up the blood of the innocent baby in the womb as a sacrifice to baal for a good economy.

But, as we will see, as God had different plans for Joseph, so may He for George's government.

Over the next few years, those who ruled in Egypt came to realize that Joseph had been given powerful gifts and intellect by God and as a result, it was not long before Joseph was the number two man in the kingdom. Second only to Pharaoh.

And as time went by and Joseph grew in power and importance, for God had made him almost indispensable to Pharaoh, a great famine came and spread across the land of the known world. Jacob and his sons and daughters, his grandchildren and his flocks were on the verge of starvation when they heard that there was plenty of food for sale in Egypt. All they had to do was convince the man in charge in Egypt to sell some to them. So, Jacob sent all but one of his sons to buy food. They when they saw Joseph, they did not recognize him, but he recognized them. He sold them food and they needed to come back again and again for more. After a while Joseph tried his brothers and had them bring Benjamin his youngest brother, his brother by his own mother Rachel to Egypt with them. They, still unawares of who he was brought Benjamin. After a while Joseph made himself known to his brothers...

Genesis 45: 1-8
1 ¶ Then Joseph could not restrain himself before all those who stood by him, and he cried out, "Make everyone go out from me!" So no one stood with him while Joseph made himself known to his brothers.

2 And Joseph wept aloud, and the Egyptians and the house of Pharaoh heard it. Then Joseph said to his brothers, "I am Joseph; does my father still live?" But his brothers could not answer him, for they were dismayed in his presence. And Joseph said to his brothers, "Please come near to me." So they came near. Then he said: "I am Joseph your brother, whom you sold into Egypt. But now, do not therefore be grieved or angry with yourselves because you sold me here; for God sent me before you to preserve life.

6 "For these two years the famine has been in the land, and there are still five years in which there will be neither plowing nor harvesting. And God sent me before you to preserve a posterity for you in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance. So now it was not you who sent me here, but God; and He has made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt."

You see, what Joseph's brothers meant for evil, God meant for good. How did this happen? Joseph never lost faith in God and prayed to Him constantly. Well, today we as Christians can change the election of George Bush to the presidency of these United States from the evil that the liberals mean it to be, to good. How? By praying twice daily for both President Bush, his appointee to the office of Attorney General, John Ashcroft and the government as a whole. If Joseph had resolved himself to being a slave and cursed God, God would have had to raise up another to save Israel from the famine. God has given us the opportunity, He has shown us that President elect Bush is listening to Him by his appointment of John Ashcroft as Attorney General. Now we must do our part and support them with prayer to God the Father in the name of God the Son through the Holy Spirit.

May the Lord bless you, me and our country. May He keep, protect and guide this new government headed by George Bush with the sword of Attorney General John Ashcroft at his side. And may He bless all fo you throughout this new year of 2001 AD, 6314 AC.
Amen






Weekend of December 30th & 31st, 2000 AD

And sometimes we need more than just a rest...


As we discussed yesterday, sometimes we just need a rest, but, at times, we are so beat down we need more than just a rest. We need the hand of God itself upon us. This condition exists not only on us as individuals, but as nations as well. We in the US of A may very well be in that condition right now. For the last twenty eight years the administrations seem to have had, as an out and out condition of their existence, the determination to eliminate our rights, both God given and Constitutionally given. It is almost as if they thought of us and our rights as nothing more than babies in the womb, up for slaughter at their slightest whim.

The Nixon administration gave us friendly relations with the Communist Chinese, a country so heathen and backwards that they still burned animal dung as a primary source for heat. They brought from China the idea that it was better to abort one's own children to make room for outsiders to flood the nation and make it into a melting pot. A doctrine right out of the communist play book to destroy America.

The Carter administration brought us the administration of the great lie, false oil shortages, and further moral decline as more and more babies were offered up to the pagan god baal. While Jimmy Carter told us he was a Born Again Christian, he not only did not raise a finger to stop abortion, he appointed supreme court justices that swore by it. He awarded the nation's highest civilian award to the founder of ACLU and was the first to include large sums of money in his budget for the child murdering planned parenthood organization. While claiming to serve Christ, he honored and furthered the goals of organizations right out of hell. And then he took and made the speed limit a federal thing, dictating that because of his blunder, no one in the country should exceed 55 mph while driving on roads that their taxes had paid for.

The nation was so upset with Jimmy that they fired him after just four years and hired a professional actor turned politician, Ronald Regan. Regan looked good on tv, got himself shot and made friends out of enemies by getting the economy going and putting more money into liberal causes like head start and planned parenthood. And he did absolutely nothing to help the baby in the womb and during his reign, another 16 million babies in these United States, while sleeping peacefully in the supposed safety of their mother's wombs, were sacrificed to baal by blood hungry miscreants with MD and DO after their names. But the economy was good and the military was getting back on it's feet, so we ignored the new gun controls, the refusal to give the states back to right to set their own speed limits and the closer ties to the UN at the expense of national sovereignty.

Then came the four years of George Herbert Walker Bush the first, a man who laid the ground work for our acceptance of a president incapable of telling the truth. A man who broke new ground in gun control and the elimination of US citizens who opposed his draconian rules. The man whose legacy includes, the great lie of "read my lips, no new taxes!" The murder of Vickie Weaver by a federal murderer (FBI sniper), and open acclamation for the one world government under the name of "New World order".

Well with four years of George, we as a nation were ready to just get rid of the D's and the R's and get us an open communist, so we fired George and hired Bill Clinton, a man absolutely incapable of telling the truth, a man whose legacy includes, murder, rape, child abuse, treason, adultery, taking abortion to new heights by funding planned parenthood world wide with 990 million US tax dollars, and the out and out murder of 85 men, women and children at Waco, Texas, followed closely by bombing the US Federal building at Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Clinton went on to use the military to kill innocents worldwide just to keep his sins off the front pages, the man is awash with the blood of innocents throughout the world including no less than 100 million babies slaughtered, as offerings to baal by the abortionists he passed federal laws to protect.

And now we have a new president, a new administration, what will they do? Will they take this beat up, tired nation that is beyond the call of common cold or even nervous breakdown over the edge, or will he start to lead it into healing?

Well, if we want to see the nation continue on it's slide, all we have to do as Christians is exactly what we did when Jimmy Carter took office - nothing! For like Jimmy, George too claims to be Born Again. And as many believed Jimmy, so do many believe George. Can we learn from the mistake we made with Carter and not repeat it with Bush? George Bush and John Ashcroft can not fight this evil alone, they are going to need troops, just as George Washington needed troops when he fought for freedom from the evils of England, so will George and John need troops in their battle against the forces of baal that now inhabit every cornier of our government. Are you ready to join the army to insure the success of President Bush and Attorney General Ashcroft?

Acts 8:22
Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.

Well, first we need to ask God to forgive us as a nation for our behavior. That's easy enough, "Lord God above, please forgive us for the things we have done, said, thought and dreamt that have offended Thee, I ask Thy forgiveness for both me and my country."

And then:

1 Peter 2: 11-17
11. Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; 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. Now that we have asked God to forgive us, let us be ever vigilant to clean up our lives and life a live more according to His word, in His Word.

13. ¶ 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. Keep in mind, that in these United States, the US Constitution is King and the president is but the governor, a public servant, a man who we have hired to do a job and we must now use all of our strength to help him accomplish that job, we must ask God to help him.

15. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king. Notice here that you are to simply honor men and the king, so you are to call men who are unsaved sir, or mister or by their first names, not clintoon, but Bill or Mr. Clinton. We are to honor the Constitution, but not worship it. On the other hand though, we are to love the brothers and sisters of the Born Again Christian community. That love absolutely includes praying for them! We know for a fact that John Ashcroft is a Born Again washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian. And President elect Bush has told us he is also, and in time his works will tell us if he is or isn't, but, let us assume here that he is. Therefore my brothers and sisters, you are commanded by Scripture, the Word of God, to pray for him as well as Attorney General Ashcroft and the rest of the Christian community each and every day! And Fear God! To fear God is to put your absolute love and trust in Him, to commit to obeying His every word and command. Therefore let us commit to making sure that this country turns from it's evil ways, that we not drop the ball, but that we obey the very Word of the Lord and pray twice daily for George Bush and John Ashcroft as a minimum.

Let me close with this from 1 Thessalonians 5:23
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Please pray for yourself, your family, me, my family, the brothers and the sisters of Christ, the President Elect and his cabinet, John Ashcroft, the baby in the womb, JC Watts and his fellow Christians in the congress and the senate, and this our country that we sojourn in till He returns for and calls us to Him in our heavenly home.
Amen.

Sometimes we just need a rest


Matthew 11:28
Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Matthew 11:29
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.

Matthew 26:45
Then cometh Jesus to His disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

Mark 6:31
And Jesus said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while:...

Mark 14:41
And He cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest:...

Why does Jesus, God as the Son, take so much time to tell us to rest?

Genesis 1-3 ¶ Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had made; and God rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it He had rested from all His work which God created and made.

Exodus 20: 8-11 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 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: 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.

Why does God the Father so want us to rest?

Well, I'm not sure, but I am sure of this, as our manufacturer, God has both our best interests at heart and knows us better than we know ourselves and better than any doctor could possibly know us. So, we should heed the words of the Lord our God, our creator and rest. But at times we don't and when we don't, God kicks in a little automatic device He has installed in us that causes us to get sick, and then whether we like it or not, we rest. While we as a society refuse to acknowledge God's hand behind it, we would prefer to call such forced rest, nervous breakdowns, or even the common cold, it is God telling us that our body needs a rest.

Want to stay healthy? Take the Lord thy God's advice, read the owners manual He published called the Bible and maintain that in which He manufactured at least as well as you maintain that which was manufactured by Ford, GM, Toyota, Chrysler or whatever.

Would you ask your half ton pickup to tow a 5,000 pound trailer over the mountains or through the desert without first changing the oil, oil filter, air filter, and plugs? As it reached 150,000 miles, would you expect it to work as hard and as long as it did at 15,000 miles? No? So why do you not rest your body as you rest your truck? If that ole pickup blew up do you think your wife and kids would spend more than 10 seconds crying? How about if your heart blew?

May the Lord thy God be with you all, may He keep you safe and may you read His word and follow His instructions for keeping His creation in perfect working order, by getting plenty of rest.

God bless you and keep you and yours, may He bless, protect and guide our brother in the Lord John Ashcroft and president elect George Bush and his appointees, may the Lord guide president elect Bushes hand in choosing appointees, as He did in his selection of John for Attorney General. As you seek the Lord's rest, as you seek His yoke, keep us, John and this country in your prayers.
Amen.

"Democrats vow to get Ashcroft"


Oh how the leftists in the media and public office hate Attorney General designate John Ashcroft, and well they should, for with John sitting as Attorney General, the days of looking the other way while homosexuals rape little boys and lesbians have their way with girls to young to even be Brownie Scouts will come to a close. The end days of no prosecutions of abortionists and pornographers draws near and they know it, fear it and hate it.

But what about us, the Born Again Christian Community, how should we feel about John's appointment? Delighted and praising God. For John's appointment to the office of chief cop in the country is an answer to our prayers. For Senator John Ashcroft is not only the opposite in sex from his predecessor, he is the opposite to her in every other way as well. Where Janet Reno has embraced all that is evil, John embraces the Lord Jesus, the Christ. Where Reno is openly lesbian, John is a solid married man, married to one woman with never even the hint of a relationship with any other than his wife. While Reno broke the law and has built her career on using her high office to cover up for the murder, treason, adultery and other sordid facts of the Clinton administration, John has built his reputation based up his strong dedication and belief in the Lord Jesus and the rule of law.

And to those stated facts I say, PRAISE GOD!

Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in His sanctuary: praise Him in the firmament of His power. Psalm 150:1

And when Jesus was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen; Luke 19:37

Let us thank and praise God for His servant John Ashcroft in the Attorney General's seat and may we join together twice daily and ask God's blessings, directions and strength on John.

Oh Lord God creator of all things we thank you, we thank you for seeing us through the last eight years of corruption and baby slaughter. We thank you Lord for getting us past the corrupt and treasonous last eight years and pray that you will be with this new administration and your servant john Ashcroft whom You have chosen to fill the office of chief cop in these United States.
Amen.

A bone we must pray for.


Thanks be to God, the Lord has given the baby in the womb a wonderful CHRISTmas gift this year, He has given them a man appointed to the Attorney Generals office of the US of A who cares for them, loves them and will, I have no doubt, use the power of his office to keep them alive. This man is Senator John Ashcroft from Missouri.

While the Bush administration seems to be leaning much further to the left than we would like to see, his appointment to the office once and currently being spoiled and defecated on by the current clinton appointee, Janet Reno, is a breath of fresh air and the answer to our prayers of rescue for the baby in the womb.

now the ball is in our court, we can sit back and watch as john surrounded by leftist members of the Bush administration beat on him day and night, as the hang ons from th e corrupt Reno regime work diligently to undermine his authority and leadership have their way. Or we can give him strength through our prayers.

Back in the fifties, there was a tribe called the Mau Mau's in Africa hostile to Christian missionaries, they were so hostile that they were killing Christian missionaries and their families left and right. One such missionary family was trying to escape and get out of Africa when at night, their car broke down. After trying unsuccessfully to start the car, the husband gave up, got his family into the car, locked it up and they went to sleep praying for help and protection. The next morning they got up, started the car and drove to safety.

Once safley out of the jungle, they were told by members of the Mau Mau's that a group of these terrorist had seen their car that night and were sneaking up on it to kill the Missionary and his family when they saw that the car was surrounded by 16 heavily armed men.

When they got back to the sates, they were asked by a mens church group if perhaps something had happened on such and such a night. The missionary told them that in fact that was the night the car broke down and they were forced to sleep in the car, he went on to tell them about the captured Mau Maus' statement about the aborted attack and the 16 armed men.

The men's group stood by with their mouths open praising God, for one of the men in the group had called the rest of the group and told them that they needed to meet and pray that very moment, when they meet to pray, there were 16 of them and they prayed for an unknown missionary in need of God's protection.

My brothers, John Ashcroft is much like that missionary and his family back in the jungle, John will be surrounded by liberal pro abortionist, he will be working for a one world governmenter who may or may not hear or seek God. We need to keep John and his staff in our prayers daily, for it is not just the success of john that hangs in the balance, it is the life of the baby in the womb as well. We have asked God for help in ending abortion, we have demonstrated that we do not have the courage to end it on our own, so, God has sent a champion for the baby in the womb, now this champion needs troops. Not troops with guns, heaven forbid, but troops willing to pray twice daily for John, the baby in the womb and the success of John's forces in closing down the abortion industry in these United States.

Matthew 18:20
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

Let us commit to this my brothers, let us not only commit ourselves, let us agree that we will sue every forum we can get to, to ask others who are Born Again Christians to join us. God has said alright, I will do it for you so that you do not dirty your hands or put yourselves out. But we must pray now for the success and safety of John.

The Lord be with you all and Lord JESUS thank you for sending us a champion to rescue the baby in the womb, what a wonderful CHIRSTmas gift.
Amen.



CHRISTmas day December 25th, 2000 AD

A Thanksgiving link


There is a man by the name of Jef Head, while he wrote this for Thanksgiving, I thought it showed most ideally what God's gift of love has done for us and our relationships. Click and read and then think about your relationships with God, your family and society.

The Lord bless you all this day. This day that we should focus not on football games and parades, not on gifts and tv shows, not on where can you get more batteries or toddy, but on He who shed His blood so that you could be free.

God's love and blessing upon all and thank you Jeff for letting me use this is at this time,
Bob



Friday and Saturday December 22nd&23rd, 2000 AD

The soldier stood and faced God


THE FINAL INSPECTION



The soldier stood and faced God

Which must always come to pass

He hoped his shoes were shining

just as brightly as his brass.



"Step forward now you soldier,

how shall I deal with you?

Have you always

turned the other cheek?

To my Church have you been true?"

The soldier squared his shoulders and

said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't

Because those of us who carry guns

Can't always be a saint.



I've had to work most Sundays

and at times my talk was tough,

And sometimes I've been violent,

Because the world is awfully rough.



But, I never took a penny

That wasn't mine to keep...

Though I worked a lot of overtime

When the bills just got too steep,

and I never passed a cry for help,

Though at times I shook with fear,

and sometimes, God forgive me,

I've wept unmanly tears.



I know I don't deserve a place

Among the people here

They never wanted me around

Except to calm their fears.



If you've a place for me here, Lord

It needn't be so grand

I never expected or had too much,

But if you don't, I'll understand."



There was silence all around the throne

Where the saints had often trod

As the soldier waited quietly,

for the judgement of his God,



"Step forward now, you soldier

You've bourne your burdens well,

Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,

You've done your time in Hell."



AUTHOR UNKNOWN



Do you see the Lord's question "To my Church have you been true?"



And the soldier's answer " No, Lord, I guess I ain't Because those of us who carry guns Can't always be a saint."



Well we are all much the same, temptation crosses our paths. We see, say, do, and think things that we know we shouldn't, but we are after all, only human. But if we are Born Again, we are always saints, we, like the soldier seem to forget that. For once we have become His, we are never ever turned away, not if we are truly Born Again.



As we enter this the weekend before CHRISTmas, let us focus on the love of He who created us and then came to earth as a man to rescue us, the Lord Jesus the Christ.



For God so loved the world, that God gave His only begotten Son, Jesus. that whosoever believeth in Jesus should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God did not send Jesus into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. He that believeth on Jesus as the Christ 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.



Once a man truly accepts the Lord as Lord and Saviour, confesses his sins to the Lord, honestly asks for forgiveness of those sins, promising to give his life to the Lord and to serve Him and confess with his mouth that Jesus is God, that man is Saved! And no amount of actions after that can take that salvation away, except for this:



Mark 3: 28 and 29

Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:

Just what did the Lord mean by this? Well, the next verse explains it as do the verses preceding it, the leaders of the jews had accused Jesus of being or having a devil in Him for that reason they had condemned themselves.

30 Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.

The only way you can loose your salvation is to attack the Father the Son or the Holy Ghost.





Thanks Mac,

Bob


Thursday December 21st, 2000 AD

And one more gift from the Lord.


Before returning to heaven, the Lord Jesus gave us many gifts. Oft times, we ignore, forget or simply do not accept these gifts. One such gift is the ability too move mountains.

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Matthew 17:20

Did Jesus really mean that we could literally tell a mountain to move and it would be moved? Yes, He did. Now I know that most preach that this is a figure of speech the Lord used, but it is not, what the Lord said is exactly what He meant. If you and I have faith the size of a mustard seed, we can command a mountain to get up and place it in the midst of the sea or perhaps on top of an abortion clinic.

How do I know that? Let's just look at what the Lord said in addition to that. In John 14 verse 12, the Lord said:
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.

For those who believe on the Lord, we shall do the things He did plus greater things. Greater? Greater than raising the dead? Healing the sick, giving sight to the blind? Well the Lord did those things plus many many more, yet He tells us that if we will believe on Him, we will do "the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works ...". So, why is it so difficult that He would let us move a mountain? Could it be more difficult for God to move a mountain that to calm a storm? Wilt a fig tree? Heal a lame man? Cure a woman ill for over a dozen years? Raise a little girl from the dead? Heal a sick servant? Raise a man dead for four days? Create the earth including the mountains in less than a week? Why is it so hard for us to accept the fact that the things that Jesus did we can do to. And what stops us?

The things that stop us from doing the things the Lord did and more are two fold:

One. We have a tendency to do things not for the glory of God, but for the glory and profit of ourselves. Won't work! We must do it not for us, but for the glory of God. As you read the gospels you will notice that not once does Jesus take credit, He always gives credit to God the Father, can we do any less?

Two. We must be willing to step out in full faith, not half heartedly, not slinking away and being afraid that we may fail. Let me give you an example. Of what happens when you are doing what some would call a miracle and you have second thoughts or doubts.

Matthew 14:22-31
22. ¶ And straightway Jesus constrained His disciples to get into a ship, and to go before Him unto the other side, while He sent the multitudes away. And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up into a mountain apart to pray:

and when the evening was come, He was there alone. But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw Him 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 Jesus said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

Now watch what happens in verse 30 and 31 But when Peter 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?

All it took was faith and Peter was walking on water, but, when the least bit of fear, doubt or second thoughts crept into Peters mind, he started to sink. At least Peter had the good sense to call out to the Lord for help. Doubt will creep in, you have to work to get rid of it. On several occasions I have kept the doubt out and while not having moved a mountain, I have watched as the Lord God healed a woman who just moments ago was surely about to die. On another occasion, I watched as a woman was healed of shingle and during the time she had it till the time it was healed, she was never in any pain. I have observed it as a stomach was operated on with the patient so low in blood that only a small amount of pain killer could be administered, yet the patient slept peacefully through out the procedure and when the doctors got inside, they found the damage healed. Plus a goodly number of other times. If I can accept this gift, so can you, all you need do is take God at His word.

Rest assured in the words of the Lord, for HE is God.

If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

And

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.

In closing let me add just this; when praying for healing or something for another, that person must be willing too. Remember, when Peter was willing and had faith, he walked on water, when he doubted, he fell. Well if the one you are praying for is not willing to be healed or saved, God will not over ride their free will. As He let Peter slip under, so will He let those unwilling to be healed slip away as well. The Lord Jesus be with you and as you pray these days before His birthday, do remember to wish Him a happy 2004th birthday from the time He was born as the Son of Man. And do not be afraid to ask Him for a gift for yourself.

The Lord be with you all,
amen

Sometimes it's tough being grown


Do you remember back to when you were a bit younger and still living at home under your parent's roof? Remember how you wished you were older and able to live on your own, make your own decisions, do what you wanted? Well, now that you're a bit older, perhaps with a bit of grey on the head, do you ever get those moments when you wish someone else would make a decision for you? Well. I having one of those days, as you'll tell from the letter to the editor of Popular mechanics, I have made a decision that I really wish could have been different.

Editor in Chief Mr. Joe Oldham
Popular Mechanics Magazine
810 Seventh Avenue
New York, New York 10019
popularmecanics@hearst.com

Dear Mr. Oldham,

One of the saddest things about being a grown up is the necessity of making decisions. Sometimes those decisions are so hard to make that they are noteworthy in our lives. This, sir, is a letter to you concerning one such decision. I write to you for this most difficult decision has to do not only with me, but with your publication Popular Mechanics as well.

A long time ago, when I was in my early teens, back in the 50's, my father and my uncles all subscribed to Popular Mechanics. I guess you could say that I grew up with Popular Mechanics in the house. I remember my dad and my uncles talking about the latest and some of the earlier issues and articles. I remember how they were not thrown away, but stacked in the cellar for future reference.

Well as time went on and I grew, married, and left the nest. As with most growing families, time and money were tight and I would often think of the time when I would be able to once again afford both the time and the resources to subscribe to two of my favorite childhood magazines, Popular Mechanics and the NRA's American Rifleman. Last year I was able to fulfill part of that dream, so I chose Popular Mechanics, and oh how I have enjoyed most of every issue. And oh how I wish I were able to renew my subscription, but alas that is not going to be possible. Not for reasons of time or financial constraints, but because of some of your ads.

Please let me see if I can explain. God's Word, the Holy Bible teaches us that we should live every day, hour and minute as if the Lord were coming back at just that instant. Paul teaches us in 1 Thessalonians 5:2
For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

As does Peter in 2Peter 3:10
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.

Both of the Apostles are telling us, as did the Lord Himself, that no man knows the time when the Lord will return, so we must live our lives as if He were coming that very instant.
But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. Matthew 24:36

Mr. Oldham, I simply can not and will not have in my house anything that I know the Lord Yeshua would object to, now while the vast majority of the items printed in your magazine would in no way upset the Lord, some of the ads you are now accepting would. I wish I could understand why you feel it necessary to accept ads advertising items to ‘enhance' ones sexual life or other ads of a sexual nature. It is because of those ads, that I have both opted to not renew my subscription and to write you this letter. Might I be so bold as to ask you to please automatically both renew for me and send me a bill for a new one year subscription the instant you decide that ads of that nature have no place in your magazine.

May the Lord of creation continue to bless you and may you wish to thank Him who created you by not offending Him with your publication.

A very merry CHIRSTmas to you and to yours,

Rev. Robert M. Celeste MCAC

I would ask you all to say a little prayer, in hopes that the editor would call the adverting department and tell them "no more smut ads!". May our Lord and Saviour Jesus the Christ bless you all this day, may He help you to make the decision to serve Him and help you to put smut out of your house, His temple.
Amen.

A letter to me...


Sometimes even preachers need to be preached to...

Every once in a while I receive an email that makes my day, an email that is a sermon of sorts, just for me. A sermon delivered by a true member of the body of Christ and it is just for me. Well, this time I have opted to share it with you. I got this from Steve, Steve along with his wife and family life in Kentucky and one of these times when Cecily and I are down there, Cecily and I are going to break bread with Steve and his. Without further ado, let me share my letter from Steve.

Bob:

This is the time of year when Christmas cards bearing greetings and best wishes for the coming New Year seem to be one of the more popular items the postman carries. In reading some scripture I wonder how a card from the era proceeding the birth of Christ might have looked.

In Luke 3, we are told of John the Baptist preparing the way for the birth of Christ. Now you have to use your imagination a little to picture the outside of the card. Instead of a manger scene or Santa coming down a chimney or a snow covered forest scene picture this: A man dressed in ragged furs with long matted hair and an unkempt beard. Barefoot no less or maybe wearing sandals and holding a shepherd's staff. Above him are the words: Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

On opening the card you now read: O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Would we look forward to the wrath that is being predicted by John? How would we take being called a generation of vipers? I have to ask myself if I am truly preparing a path for the Lord, if so, is the path that I am preparing a straight one? How many times do I waver from the path? Do I sit idly by and let ""off color"" jokes go unanswered? Do I get email jokes from co-workers that are inappropriate?

If so, why?

Do I encourage them by not saying anything to the co-workers? Do I not live the life of a Christian 24 hours a day, 7 days a week? Or do I just wink at these jokes and either delete them or pass them on?

How about just the simple things of being a servant leader for my family? Did I open the car door for Janice last night? Was it so cold outside that I just worried about getting into the warmth of the car and let her fend for herself? With her parents in poor health and being very "testy" do I show the patience and compassion that is worthy of them, or do I get impatient and wonder why they just seem to complain all of the time.

Is our nation a generation of vipers? I would have to say that John called this one right on the money. I am sure that previous generations have had their share of problems, but we are the first generation to sit back and do-nothing about the killing of the innocent unborn children, and now the trend is leading us to start killing the elderly, the sick and the infirm. What would be the outcome for Janice's 79 year-old mother if she lived in the Netherlands? She is blind, has Parkinson's Disease, Diabetes and Arthritis and the week before Thanksgiving fell and broke her hip, requiring a total hip replacement. She is now home bound, requiring someone to be with her 24hours a day. Would the Dutch go to that trouble or just administer a little something to help her make the transition to end her life? The ultimate"final solution" that the civilized world thought died with Hitler.

A few years back the nation and probably the world was swamped with the WWJD phrase, asking, "What Would Jesus Do?" This weekend I saw a little decal on a car that had WDJD on it. Maybe I am behind the trendiness of Christianity, but I had to go up to it and look closely. The message was clear, What Did Jesus Do? Written below were the words we know so well.""e died for your sins and mine."

As a nation we have moved from this, we have forgotten it. Go up to 10 people on the street and ask them "What Did Jesus Do?" See what answers you get. We now don't care about anything but the bottom line. What's in it for me? What do I get if I do this? We have to return to a generation of servitude as our Savior was, not only to each other, but also to our Lord and Savior. If we don't we will end up just like the Dutch, waiting for the knock on the door some night.

Again I have to say that I agree with John on calling this a generation of vipers. Maybe he was even being too kind to us. I don't know what is lower than a viper, but if we aren't there, we are heading there. We need to make our paths straight now. I don't mean for this to sound gloom and doom. No matter the outcome of elections and what happens on the stock exchange, you and I know what the true "bottom line" is; that through Him and the sacrifice He made for us on the cross at Golgotha we have eternal and everlasting salvation.

Bob, you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful and joy filled New Year.

Steve.

Thank you Steve and may the Lord bless you as you and your family have been a blessing to me,
Bob

God blessed America when she feared Him, now it appears, she may face His wrath.

All Scripture is quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, except when done by a guest, is from the authorized 1611 King James Version. The words in red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greyish color are of satan and his ilk. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by.

Monday December 18th, 2000 AD

December 18th, 2000 one week to go.


As we approach the date we celebrate the sacred birth of the Lord Jesus, the Saviour, I think back to the time before His birth, a time much like now. As the days approached when the Lord was to be born, the years before it found ,many political entities in Israel springing up. Two of them remind me of today in the US of A. In the two hundred years before the Lords birth, came forward the Herodians and the Zealots. The Herodians were those much like the liberal left leaning politicians of the republican party and the democrat party as well as the so called main stream press and the average middle class American today. They were the ones that just got along with the government, accepted whatever the government did and really could have cared less, as long as the economy was good.

The Zealots on the other hand were the super patriots of the day, they were the ones who fought a constant battle with those that oppressed Israel, those that did not obey the Word of the Lord, much like today's American Christian Militia men.

I would liken these two groups like this, the Herodian's of today would be the Bushes, the Gores, the Clinton's and the Barney Franks. Those who put the economy ahead of all, those who put human self gratification ahead of the Lord Jesus. Those who allow the sacrifice of babies to appease the god baal, those who find the despicable act of homosexuality and lesbianism to be no more than acceptable alternative life styles.

In today's society, the Zealot would be likened to those men who put God first, his family second, his country third and the economy somewhere down around a hundred and fifty or so. To us, it is God whom we love, fear, cherish, worship and would fight and die for. It is our families whom we love, cherish and protect with our lives if necessary. Our nation which we would and will fight for and the economy that means little to us and would never cause us to compromise our first three loves for. To the Zealot, the idea of embracing the abortionist, the communist, the UN, the homosexual, lesbian or communist is absolutely unacceptable in any and all circumstances. That is not to say we would not pray for then, we would of course, but to compromise the word of God to appease them? Never!

Today we are going to look at those two groups in Scripture, first the Herodians.

Matthew 2: 1-16
¶ 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.' Micah 5:2"

Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared. 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."

When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. And when they were come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, they fell down, and worshiped Him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto Jesus gifts of; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. And then, being warned by God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way. And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared 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."

Now, when Joseph arose, he took Jesus and His mother by night, and departed into Egypt: And stayed there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, "OUT OF EGYPT HAVE I CALLED MY SON" Hosea 11:1.

Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked by the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and had murdered all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the area around it, all the children two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.

Yes, the Herodains have always been those who lied, cheated, stole and would shed innocent blood to keep themselves and the economy healthy and in power. Notice how Herod did not act alone, he called forth the chief priest and the scribes, how he alone was not upset over the coming of the Lord, all Jerusalem with him. And he certainly didn't go and kill all those babies on his own, he must have had plenty of help. Can't you just hear the masses saying; "well, he is the lesser of the two evils" or perhaps, "but abortion is legal", or maybe, "it's the economy stupid". Even back two thousand five years ago, there were those in office who wanted to kill the CHRIST.

Now let us look at the Zealot.

Luke 6:12-16
And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus went up onto a mountain to pray, and stayed all night in prayer to God. And when it was day, He called unto Him His disciples: and out of them He chose twelve, whom also He named apostles; Simon, (whom he also named Peter,) and Andrew, Peter's brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew, Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called Zelotes, And Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, which also was the traitor.

While the Herodians of the day were trying to improve the economy and kill the Lord, who did Jesus call to be amongst His trusted twelve? Simon, the Zealot, the militia member. Yes my brothers in the Lord and under arms, we can and must pray for Bush, but we must never ever compromise our beliefs and trust in God and His Word in order to get along with Bush, Clinton and the rest of today's Herodians.

May He bless you and keep you strong and may He, in His time, bring forth one to lead the rescue of the baby in the womb. May He give us strength to hold on. And may He make us to understand that the baby in the womb is our friend.
"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13
Amen.

CHRISTmas is a time to show one's love


We at the church for the American Christian Patriot would like to extend to all, our blessings and prayer that you will all have a sacred, joyous, CHRISTmas this year. We pray that you and yours will focus on the gift given to us by the birth of our Lord, our Saviour, the Christ, Jesus. CHRISTmas is a time to show one's love of family and friends by giving gifts and prayers. A time to give gifts to those less fortunate than ourselves and a time to accept from the Lord His gift of Salvation. To give Him our thanks if we have already received His gift of salvation and if not, to this very day receive it. For Jesus gave His all so that you wouldn't have to.

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 does, 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. for 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 blows where it likes, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but can not tell where it comes, and where it goes: 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. John 3:1-18


You see, the gift that God has given us goes way beyond any gift man can give man. God has given us the blood of His only Son, the only Son that God had with a woman. For this Saviour we call Jesus while carried, nursed and mothered by a woman named Mary, had as His Father, the Spirit of God Himself. God Himself came to earth to be the baby Jesus, to grow and shed His blood so that we could be saved from our sins and spend eternity in heaven with Him instead of hell with satan.

Praise GOD!

How I pray this very day that Christ will bless you all and yours, that he will forgive yours and my sins that He will give our nation another chance and let His Holy Spirit dwell within this nation once again. Oh but for the Grace of God, for no other but God Himself can or will give us peace, for peace from any man is nothing but a lie. May He this CHRISTmas feel pity in His heart for those who are Born Again and living on His earth, may He turn the tide away from evil and bless His children here on earth, may He turn His face towards us and smile His blessing upon us.

Amen.

10 days to go.


Often times we feel a little bad for ourselves, we have a tendency to feel sorry for ourselves for not having all we think we should have, or all we want. I'm no different, I was sitting here Thursday thinking how nice it would be to have a faster computer, how I would love a newer car and to be able to afford a plow. Or maybe a snow blower. Just about that time my computer made one of those silly noises it makes when I have a new email coming in, kind of a kerplunk sound. More like keeerPlunkkk.

The email I got, kind of put life back in perspective for me. While the author is unknown, the sender is quite well known to me, for Mac and I have known each other for about fifty years now. Sometimes his timing is everything, below is the email he sent, May the Lord Yeshua bless you all,

The Spirit behind CHRISTmas
Pa never had much compassion for the lazy or those who squandered their means and then never had enough for the necessities. But for those who were genuinely in need, his heart was as big as all outdoors. It was from him that I learned the greatest joy in life comes from giving, not from receiving.

It was CHRISTmas Eve 1881. I was fifteen years old and feeling like the world had caved in on me because there just hadn't been enough money to buy me the rifle that I'd wanted so bad that year for CHRISTmas.

We did the chores early that night for some reason. I just figured Pa wanted a little extra time so we could read in the Bible. I was still feeling sorry for myself and, to be honest, I wasn't in much of a mood to read Scriptures. But Pa didn't get the Bible, instead he bundled up and went outside. I couldn't figure it out because we had already done all the chores.

Soon Pa came back in. It was a cold clear night out and there was ice in his beard. "Come on, Matt," he said. "Bundle up good, it's cold out tonight."

I was really upset then. Not only wasn't I getting the rifle for CHRISTmas, now Pa was dragging me out in the cold, and for no earthly reason that I could see.. But I knew Pa was not very patient at one dragging one's feet when he'd told them to do something, so I got up and put my boots back on and got my cap, coat, and mittens. Ma gave me a mysterious smile as I opened the door to leave the house. Something was up, but I didn't know what.

Outside, I became even more dismayed. There in front of the house was the work team, already hitched to the big sled. Whatever it was we were going to do wasn't going to be a short, quick, little job. I could tell.

We never hitched up the big sled unless we were going to haul a big load. Pa was already up on the seat, reins in hand. I reluctantly climbed up beside him. The cold was already biting at me. I wasn't happy.

When I was on, Pa pulled the sled around the house and stopped in front of the woodshed. He got off and I followed. "I think we'll put on the high sideboards," he said. "Here, help me."

The high sideboards! It had been a bigger job than I wanted to do with just the low sideboards on, but whatever it was we were going to do would be a lot bigger with the high sideboards on. When we had exchanged the sideboards Pa went into the woodshed and came out with an armload of wood---the wood I'd spent all summer hauling down from the mountain, and then all fall sawing into blocks and splitting. What was he doing?

Finally I said something. "Pa," I asked, "what are you doing?"

You been by the Widow Jensen's lately?" he asked. The Widow Jensen lived about two miles down the road. Her husband had died a year or so before and left her with three children, the oldest being eight. Sure, I'd been by, but so what? "Yeah," I said, "why?"

"I rode by just today," Pa said. "Little Jakey was out digging around in the woodpile trying to find a few chips. They're out of wood, Matt."

That was all he said and then he turned and went back into the woodshed for another armload of wood. I followed him. We loaded the sled so high that I began to wonder if the horses would be able to pull it. Finally, Pa called a halt to our loading, then we went to the smoke house and Pa took down a big ham and a side of bacon. When he returned he was carrying a sack of flour over his right shoulder and a smaller sack of something in his left hand. "What's in the little sack?" I asked. "Shoes. They're out of shoes. Little Jakey just had gunny sacks wrapped around his feet when he was out in the woodpile this morning. I got the children a little candy too. It just wouldn't be Christmas without a little candy."

We rode the two miles to Widow Jensen's pretty much in silence. I tried to think through what Pa was doing. We didn't have much by worldly standards. Of course, we did have a big woodpile, though most of what was left now was still in the form of logs that I would have to saw into blocks and split before we could use it. We also had meat and flour, so we could spare that, but I knew we didn't have any money, so why was Pa buying them shoes and candy? Really, why was he doing any of this? Widow Jensen had closer neighbors than us. It shouldn't have been our concern.

We came in from the blind side of the Jensen house and unloaded the wood as quietly as possible, then we took the meat and flour and shoes to the door. We knocked. The door opened a crack and a timid voice said, "Who is it?"

"Lucas Miles, Ma'am, and my son, Matt. Could we come in for a bit?" Widow Jensen opened the door and let us in. She had a blanket wrapped around her shoulders. The children were wrapped in another and were sitting in front of the fireplace by a very small fire that hardly gave off any heat at all. Widow Jensen fumbled with a match and finally lit the lamp.

"We brought you a few things, Ma'am," Pa said and set down the sack of flour. I put the meat on the table. Then Pa handed her the sack that had the shoes in it. She opened it hesitantly and took the shoes out one pair at a time. There was a pair for her and one for each of the children---sturdy shoes, the best, shoes that would last. I watched her carefully. She bit her lower lip to keep it from trembling and then tears filled her eyes and started running down her cheeks. She looked up at Pa like she wanted to say something, but it wouldn't come out. "We brought a load of wood too, Ma'am," Pa said, then he turned to me and said, "Matt, go bring enough in to last for awhile. Let's get that fire up to size and heat this place up."

I wasn't the same person when I went back out to bring in the wood. I had a big lump in my throat and, much as I hate to admit it, there were tears in my eyes too. In my mind I kept seeing those three kids huddled around the fireplace and their mother standing there with tears running down her cheeks and so much gratitude in her heart that she couldn't speak. My heart swelled within me and a joy filled my soul that I'd never known before. I had given at Christmas many times before, but never when it had made so much difference. I could see we were literally saving the lives of these people.

I soon had the fire blazing and everyone's spirits soared. The kids started giggling when Pa handed them each a piece of candy and Widow Jensen looked on with a smile that probably hadn't crossed her face for a long time. She finally turned to us. "God bless you," she said. "I know the Lord himself has sent you. The children and I have been praying that he would send one of his angels to spare us."

In spite of myself, the lump returned to my throat and the tears welled up in my eyes again. I'd never thought of Pa in those exact terms before, but after Widow Jensen mentioned it I could see that it was probably true. I was sure that a better man than Pa had never walked the earth. I started remembering all the times he had gone out of his way for Ma and me, and many others. The list seemed endless as I thought on it. Pa insisted that everyone try on the shoes before we left. I was amazed when they all fit and I wondered how he had known what sizes to get. Then I guessed that if he was on an errand for the Lord that the Lord would make sure he got the right sizes.

Tears were running down Widow Jensen's face again when we stood up to leave. Pa took each of the kids in his big arms and gave them a hug. They clung to him and didn't want us to go. I could see that they missed their pa, and I was glad that I still had mine. At the door Pa turned to Widow Jensen and said, "The Mrs. wanted me to invite you and the children over for Christmas dinner tomorrow. The turkey will be more than the three of us can eat, and a man can get cantankerous if he has to eat turkey for too many meals. We'll be by to get you about eleven. It'll be nice to have some little ones around again. Matt, here, hasn't been little for quite a spell." I was the youngest. My two older brothers and two older sisters were all married and had moved away.

Widow Jensen nodded and said, "Thank you, Brother Miles. I don't have to say, "'May the Lord bless you,' I know for certain that He will."

Out on the sled I felt a warmth that came from deep within and I didn't even notice the cold. When we had gone a ways, Pa turned to me and said, "Matt, I want you to know something. Your ma and me have been tucking a little money away here and there all year so we could buy that rifle for you, but we didn't have quite enough. Then yesterday a man who owed me a little money from years back came by to make things square. Your ma and me were real excited, thinking that now we could get you that rifle, and I started into town this morning to do just that. But on the way I saw little Jakey out scratching in the woodpile with his feet wrapped in those gunny sacks and I knew what I had to do. So, Son, I spent the money for shoes and a little candy for those children. I hope you understand."

I understood, and my eyes became wet with tears again. I understood very well, and I was so glad Pa had done it. Just then the rifle seemed very low on my list of priorities. Pa had given me a lot more. He had given me the look on Widow Jensen's face and the radiant smiles of her three children. For the rest of my life, whenever I saw any of the Jensen's, or split a block of wood, I remembered, and remembering brought back that same joy I felt riding home beside Pa that night. Pa had given me much more than a rifle that night, he had given me the best CHRISTmas of my life.

May each of you be blessed with all the joys of the High Holiday

Teach your children to pray.


So, what do you think Jesus would like for CHRISTmas more than anything else? You, your wife and your kids! That my dear dads is what the Lord wants more than anything else, and only you and they can give Him that gift. For He has given us all the ability to choose. We choose Him or satan, for Him we must actually make that choice, but for satan, well the default is satan, not the Lord Yeshua.

So, how do you as a dad help your wife and children become the Lord's instead of satan's? How do you lead them to eternal glory, happiness and peace with the Lord instead of an eternity of pain, suffering and hells darkness and torment with satan? Through prayer. Teach them to pray. Not to idols, not to church leaders, not to dead men and women in the ground. But to God the Father through God the Son.

Let us start with the simplest, most basic of all prayers, the one the Lord Jesus taught His disciples 1970 years ago. Now we are going to leave the King James and go to the Young's Literal translation for this, so read carefully.

The disciples of the Lord Jesus had just asked Him to teach them to pray and the Lord replied;

Matthew chapter six:
1. ¶ `Take heed your kindness not to do before men, to be seen by them, and if not--reward ye have not from your Father who is in the heavens; whenever, therefore, thou mayest do kindness, thou mayest not sound a trumpet before thee as the hypocrites do, in the synagogues, and in the streets, that they may have glory from men; verily I say to you--they have their reward! `But thou, doing kindness, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doth, that thy kindness may be in secret, and thy Father who is seeing in secret Himself shall reward thee manifestly.

5. ¶ And when thou mayest pray, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites, because they love in the synagogues, and in the corners of the broad places--standing--to pray, that they may be seen of men; verily I say to you, that they have their reward. `But thou, when thou mayest pray, go into thy chamber, and having shut thy door, pray to thy Father who is in secret, and thy Father who is seeing in secret, shall reward thee manifestly. `And--praying--ye may not use vain repetitions like the nations, for they think that in their much speaking they shall be heard, be ye not therefore like to them, for your Father doth know those things that ye have need of before your asking him;

9. ¶ thus therefore pray ye:
`Our Father who art in the heavens! hallowed be Thy name. `Thy reign come: Thy will come to pass, as in heaven also on the earth. `Our appointed bread give us to-day. `And forgive us our debts, as also we forgive our debtors. `And mayest Thou not lead us to temptation, but deliver us from the evil, because Thine is the reign, and the power, and the glory--to the ages.

Amen.

Yes, gentlemen teach yours to pray as the Lord taught His to pray, and may He be with and bless you this day.
Amen.

Daily Christian thoughts starting Monday November 6th, 2000

Tuesday December 12th, 2000 AD

13 days and counting.


As I knelt in prayer this morning, I once again asked God to forgive my every sin, to once again forgive me and enter into me, to help me do His will and to let me serve Him. Then as i was sitting here, I thought to myself, here I am asking God to let me be His, here I am giving myself to the Lord for His birthday, what a lousy gift I am indeed compared to the gift He has given me and every other one of His creations that walk the earth. Let me explain.

First it is important for you to understand and accept that God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit are all one God. They are not separate, but one. That said, let us look back 6,300 years or so: Here, God is coming down on Adam, Eve and satan big time. It is right after satan has tricked Adam and Eve into doing the one thing God had told them they could not do.

Genesis 3: verses 14 and 15
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. 6,300 years ago, God told satan that one day he would bruise the heel of God, but that one day also God would crush satan's head.

So, when Jesus was captured by the Italians and Jews 1970 years ago or so, Jesus had had over 4,000 years to think about what was going to happen to Him at calvary. Yet, He so loves us that He went thorough with it. That is not only true love, it is one absolute great CHRISTmas gift and in comparison, our gift to the Lord of ourselves is nothing, for we are but from dust.

Let us look at Luke chapter 25, if you have real audio, click here to hear Luke chapter 25.

1 ¶ Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the grave where Jesus had been lais, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: And they, as they were afraid, bowed down their faces to the earth, and the two men in shining garments said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen: remember how He spake unto you when He was yet in Galilee, Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.

8 And they remembered the words spoken by Jesus, and they returned from the sepulchre to Jerusalem, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.

10 It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, which told these things unto the apostles. And their words seemed to the apostles as idle tales, and they did not believe them.

12 Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed, wondering in himself at that which was come to pass. Now, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs. And they talked together of all these things which had happened. And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus Himself drew near, and went with them. But their eyes were blurred so that they should not know Him.

17 And Jesus said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?

18 And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto Him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?

19 And Jesus asked them, What things? And they said unto Him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people: And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him to be condemned to death, and have crucified Him. But we trusted that it had been He which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done. Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre; And when they found not His body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that He was alive. And some of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but Jesus they saw not.

25 Then he said unto them, O fools, you are so slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He explained to them in all the scriptures the things concerning Himself.

28 And as they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and He made as though He would have gone further. They constrained Him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And Jesus went in to tarry with them. And it came to pass, as He sat at meat with them, He took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. And their eyes were opened, and they knew Him; and He vanished out of their sight. And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while He talked with us by the way, and while He opened to us the scriptures?

33 So, they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, they found the eleven gathered together, and those that were with the eleven, saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.

35 And the two who had gone to Emmaus and had met the Lord along the way, told what things were done in the way, and how Jesus was known of them in breaking of bread. And as they spoke, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

37 But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. And He said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? Behold My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself: touch Me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see I have.

40 And when He had thus spoken, He showed them His hands and His feet. And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, He said unto them, Have ye here any meat? And they gave Him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb. And he took it, and did eat before them. And Jesus said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning Me.

45 Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, and said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things. And, behold, I send the promise of My Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

50 ¶ And He led them out as far as Bethany, and He lifted up His hands, and blessed them. And it came to pass, while He blessed them, He was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. And they worshiped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy: And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.

For over four thousand years Jesus knew what He faced on that cross, yet He so loves us that His CHRISTmas gift to us is salvation through His blood on the cross.

As we come nearer to CHRISTmas, teach your children to know, love and fear God Almighty, for as He has told us, we know not when He will return. Maybe His gift to us this very CHRISTmas will be His return for His bride. Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus.

Amen.

Monday December 11th, 2000 AD

Only two more weeks to go...


Two more weeks and we celebrate the Lord's holy, sacred and virgin birth. But what shall we do to fill our time between now and then? Well, in addition to praising Him daily for the wonderful things He has given us as presents such a life, air, water, and gravity. We could also use this time to update our boycott list. What you say, boycott list? What has a boycott list to do with CHRISTmas, a time of love and giving. Why would we even want to think about such a thing as boycotting.

We as Born Again believers have been told by the Lord to separate ourselves from the heathens. To forgo the loves of this world and be temples to and for the Holy Spirit. As you drive around, you will see stores and businesses that so despise us and our Lord that they will not even refer to Him by His name, but instead refer to Him as only "x". X, is the symbol for unknown. X is the symbol folks who can not write their own names to sign something. Think of how much you would have to dislike or even hate someone to refer to them as "x" or "that person". Well there are merchants who have huge signs up advertising not CHRISTmas, but x mas. They so hate the Lord that they will not even acknowledge His name. Those merchants we should avoid like the plague, for they are a plague. They are the decedents of those who so hated the Lord that even when they could find no fault in Him, they beat, tortured, hung on a cross and killed, just the same.

So, make a mental note of those who so hate your Lord and boycott them as they boycott the Lord. And if one day you happen to meet the shop owner or merchant on the street and he says something to you like, "I haven't seen you in my store recently, anything wrong?" Tell him exactly what is wrong and witness to him at the same time, but do not return to his store till another CHRISTmas has arrived and you see that his signs now say CHRISTmas.

OK, dads let us look at today's family Bible study. We are learning about Jesus, He whose birthday we are preparing to celebrate.

Luke 2:25-40
25. ¶ And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ. And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for Him after the custom of the law, then took he the baby Jesus up in his arms, and blessed God, and said, Lord, now let thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel. Simeon had been promised by God that he would not die till he had seen with his own eyes, the Messiah. After he saw and held the baby Jesus, the Messiah, he looked up to heaven, thanked God and said that now that God had full filled His word to him, he was ready to die.

33. And Joseph and His mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of Him. And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary the Lord's mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against; (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed. While I'm sure that Mary did not understand what Simeon was talking about at that time, he was right, for Mary the mother of the Lord would be present the day that Jesus was hung on the cross and stabbed in the side, ask any mother how seeing that would pierce her heart.

36. And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity; and she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day. And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of Him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.

39. And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth. And Jesus grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon Him.

Even as an eight day old baby, those who were close to the Lord, those who today would be called Born Again Christians, knew who Jesus was, they knew that this little boy was not just another little boy, but was in fact, God come to earth as the promised Saviour of His creation. They knew that his little boy was Jesus the Christ, the Messiah. By their very admissions, they became amongst the first Born Again Christians. Not the first, but amongst the first, tomorrow, we will look at some of the first Born Again Christians. Watchers of sheep and kings.

As we approach the day we have set aside to celebrate the birth of the Messiah, let the joy of the things He has done, settle into your heart, but step not a foot across the threshold of any that so despise Him that they will not use His name. God's Sons; blessing upon you and yours this day and for every day till He takes you to be with Him.

Merry fourteen days till CHRISTmas.

Amen.

Saturday December 9th, 2000 AD

2 weeks and 2 day to go.


As I number and titled these thoughts, I kind of wish I had an eight or nine year old looking over my shoulder. For as we have been studying the book written by God, the Holy Bible, in an effort to better know His Son, our Saviour Jesus, I have misnumbered the days till CHIRSTmas. Yesterday I said, 22 days till CHRISTmas, the day before 23. But alas, I was counting wrong, for indeed, little ones, it is but 16 days till we celebrate His birthday.

We have looked at the words Jesus spoke about His return at the end, we have seen some of how Isaiah prophesied the coming of the Lord as have we Psalms, but now let us turn our attention to the Apostle Paul.

1 Thessalonians 5:1-11

1 ¶ But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 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. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. For Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Yes, Jesus has told us in Matthew 24 the signs of the end times, the signs that will lead to His return for His church. Paul here reminds us that those who are left behind will not escape, but we who are Born Again will.

6 ¶ Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. Don't try and be like the unsaved, don't worry about money, homes, cars, and things, focus your attention on worshiping the Lord and doing His will and serving Him. Focus on celebrating His birth, prepare for it as you would the birth of your child and when the day of His return comes, you will be ready.

9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Jesus gave His all, so that you and I would not have to spend eternity in hell, through His sacrifice of Himself and His resurrection, He has paved the way for us to spend eternity with Him, the Father and the holy Ghost. What better gift could any man give you? You thank, praise and pay the doctor that saves your earthly life, what more should you do for He, who through His sacrifice has saved your eternal life?

11 ¶ Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do. Could there be a clearer command than this that Born Again Christians should seek each other out and fellowship, comfort and strengthen one an other? This brothers is a command to join a solid local church. It is also a command to fathers to be the minister to their families, not the only one, but one of many. For how can you comfort your family with the word of God if you are not yourself studying it?

May the Lord Yeshua bless you and yours this day, may He bless you and comfort you and keep you safe in the storms of life.
Amen.

17 days till we celebrate the birth of Jesus, the Christ.


Well, with but 3 weeks and 1 day to go, I am reminded of the song, ‘It's starting to feel a lot like CHRISTmas'. For oh how I love this time of the year, and over the last 56 years or so, I have heard many an apt description of this time of the year, but my all time favorite is the one I heard about 6 or 7 years ago, while listening to Barry Farber on the radio. Barry was trying to figure out how anyone could be against CHRISTmas, and as he pondered, he described the lights, the music, the snow, the cold, clean, crisp air, the smiles on peoples faces, the wonderful music played live by the Salvation Army bands, the foods, the cheer, and the wonderful looks on the faces of children young and old in anticipation of CHRISTmas morning. As I reminisce, I think how much I miss Barry's show.

Oh Lord how I pray that one day you will take and touch Barry's life. That you will show him who you are so that he joins the ranks of my brothers and sisters in the Messianic community. About 30 years ago, it was a Messianic Jew by the name of Abraham Murray Cohen that first truly introduced me to the Lord, how I would love for Barry to run into Abe. How I would love to one day find that Barry too would be raptured if the Lord called His church. For Barry was and is a man I am proud to call a friend, but how I long to call him "brother".

Oh Lord Yeshua if I can have but one gift on Your birthday, let it be the answer of salvation for everyone who I have brought to you in prayer for their salvation. Barry, Sean, Rick, Todd, Laura, Jean, Howard and Michael, Tammy, Glenda and Diane, Jeanne, and well Lord you know their names, so let me just say, and all the rest. Let none be left off my CHRISTmas gift lift.

Now dad's before I get carried away, let us look at today's study for you and your family.

Matthew 24:32-44, I know, here he goes again with the fig trees. But keep in mind, the words in red are words spoken by the Lord Yeshua Himself, Yeshua by the way is the Hebrew for Jesus. So, here we go.

32 ¶ Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. The Lord is talking about the time of His return, the time He will return and take His church, the time that starts the seven years of tribulation, the time we call Rapture.

36 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. Noe is another way of saying Noah. Eating, drinking, marrying... Eating and drinking are pretty easy to understand , but what has the Lord got against marrying? Nothing accept the word marrying here used by Jesus is not the same as we use the word today. You see, in the eyes of God, marriage takes place when a man and a woman know each other, that is to say, make love for their first time. Look at Genesis chapter 24, you'll want to read the entire chapter, but verses 64-67 make the point:
Genesis 24:64 And Rebekah lifted up her eyes, and when she saw Isaac, she lighted off the camel. For she had said unto the servant, What man is this that walketh in the field to meet us? And the servant had said, It is my master: therefore she took a vail, and covered herself.
66. And the servant told Isaac all things that he had done. And Isaac brought Rebekah into his mother Sarah's tent, and took Rebekah, and she became his wife; and he loved her: and Isaac was comforted after his mother's death. You see, when a girl gives herself to a man, she is in the eyes of God, married to that man. When she gives herself to any man after that, she is committing adultery. Jesus could have said, eating, drinking and being promiscuous, the meaning would have been much the same.

Let us return to Matthew
40 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. Obviously not everyone will be taken to be with the Lord, at east half are going to be left behind.

42. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. While Jesus has clearly told us what to look for, He has given us no way of knowing the exact hour or day. This means we must live every day, hour and minute as if it were the one in which He was coming back. How would you like to be cheating in school, stealing pens at work, or looking at a porn book like playboy when the Lord returned? My guess is that you would rather have the Lord return while you were either sleeping or reading your Bible to your family during family Bible study hour.

The Lord Jesus, Yeshua Messiah be with you all, may He bless you and help you minister to your family, His children. And may He hear our cry for salvation for those we love who are among the unsaved. Amen

18 days till CHRISTmas.


So why do I spell it CHRISTmas? Why, whose birthday are we celebrating? And is not CHRIST the only name by whom a man might be saved? So, let us be proud of He in whom we have placed our trust and our salvation. Let us be proud of He who shed His blood enabling us to go from darkness to Light. Let us shout out that it is CHRISTmas, the celebration of the birth of the Lord Jesus, the Christ, the Messiah, the Saviour of the world. Let us this very moment send a card to Vice President Richard Cheney both wishing him and his a merry CHRISTmas and reminding him that with the power of his office leading the charge, CHRISTmas can be CHRISTmas once again, not just one huge clearance sale.

Vice President Richard Cheney and family
the Naval Observatory
Residence of the Vice President
Massachusetts Drive
Washington, DC, USA 2001

And you might take this time to remind the vice president that like Jesus, it is a baby in the womb, not a choice.

Now, let us get to today's Scripture for dads to do with their families.

Psalm 85, a prophetic Psalm depicting the generosity and forgiveness and love of Jesus the Messiah. If you have Real Audio installed in your computer, you can hear Psalm 85 in the King James Version read aloud by clicking here.

. 1. ¶ (To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.) LORD, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob. Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah. Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger. Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease. Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations? Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation. Oh what a wonderful prayer of asking for forgiveness and salvation. Have you ever had one of your young ones come to you after you have had to punish him or her and had them say to you, in a small low trembling voice, "daddy, I'm sorry, are you still mad at me?" Does it not melt your heart? Do you not think that Jesus reacts the same way when we come to Him as that child came to you? Remember in Matthew 18:1-4. Jesus tells us how we should approach Him:

1. ¶ At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? And Jesus called a little child unto Him, and set Him in the midst of them, and said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Learn to approach the Lord as your little ones approach you and teach them to do the same.

Let us continue with Psalm 85, picking it up in verse 8;

8. ¶ I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for He will speak peace unto His people, and to His saints: but let them not turn again to folly. Surely His salvation is nigh them that fear(love) Him; that glory may dwell in our land. Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven. Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase. Righteousness shall go before Him; and shall set us in the way of His steps. Oh how the Lord would bless America if we would only turn back to Him, wether the Lord will bless or chastize this land is in the hands of you and yours, for if we ignore Him, He will not be happy, but will be grieved as a dad is grieved over the prospect of disciplining an errant little one. But, if you and yours return to Him, He is like the dad whose son has been gone for a while and returns home asking for forgiveness. Look here:

Luke 15:11-24
11. ¶ And Jesus said, A certain man had two sons: And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living. And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living. And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.

15. And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. And he would loved to have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: but, no man gave any to him. And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, I am not worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.

20. And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and his heart yelled out his love for his son, and he ran, and wrapped his arms around his sons neck, and kissed him.

21. And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.

22. But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry: For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry. Jesus is the father, we are the errant son, for we have all sinned and done wrong in the sight of the Lord, just as your kids have all done something wrong. Needing forgiveness and sometimes punishment. Jesus loves us much more than we could ever love our families. Teach your children to love the Lord through your example, teach them to pray and worship the Lord God creator of the world, by example, by praying with them and reading the Bible to them each and every day.

May the Lord Jesus smile upon you and yours, may he bless you, yours, me and mine. May He give us more time and may he love us as only God could love those He made in His image.
Amen.

19 days till CHRISTmas.


Well, what a wonderful time of the year, only 24 days till we celebrate the birth of the Messiah. Now I know that some say that the 25th of December is not the date that Jesus was born on, as a matter of fact, they may very well be right, for no one is sure just what day it was. Nor for that matter even what year, for it could have been 5 BC, 4 BC, 3 BC, 2BC, or even 1BC. But what should that stop us from celebrating. Why should we not pick a date and celebrate the birth of Yeshua on that date?

Let me ask you a question, this is for those who hold dear to the idea that they will not celebrate the birth of the Lord since they are not sure just what that date is. Let us say for a moment that one day you came out of your door and there on the step was a gorgeous little baby, the note said, "I can no longer care for him, please raise him as one of your own." Notice nowhere on the note did it tell you the baby's age, date of birth or for that matter even his or her gender. Ah, but sex will be easy enough to find out, cause the little guy is crying and you can not help but notice a strange smell, telling you that it is time to change his or her diapers, from that time on, you'll know wether it be a little boy or a little girl.

Ah, but what about his age? Since you do not know his exact age and when he was born, will you simply ignore his birthday? Will you celebrate the births of the other children in the house, but ignore his? Of course not, you will look at this little guy and guess about how old he is and then assign a birth date to him. And bingo once a year on that date that you assigned, you will celebrate his birth. But what about He who created that little guy? Are you still going to ignore His birthday celebration because you do not have an exact date? Or shall you join with the rest of us, wear a smile with joy in your heart and celebrate the birth of the Messiah?

OK, dad's let's do today's CHRISTmas family Bible study.

Today we are going to do Isaiah 11:1-11 and Isaiah 2:1-5 but, let us start with just a word of prayer.

Oh heavenly Father, creator of all things, please help us to understand your words, forgive us our sins, help us to forgive those who have trespassed against us, keep us from temptation, and protect us from evil. And I pray to Thee in the name of Thy sacred Son, Jesus, asking You to bless my family.
Amen.

Isaiah 11:1-11

Now if you take just a moment to look back in chapter 10 to verse 24, you'll see that what we are about to read was not thoughts of the prophet Isaiah, but his repeating of what God Almighty has said to him; 10:24 ¶ Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD of hosts,...

1. ¶ And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of His roots: And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; And shall make Him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and He shall not judge after the sight of His eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of His ears: But with righteousness shall He judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and He shall smite the earth with the rod of His mouth, and with the breath of His lips shall He slay the wicked. What a wonderful description of Jesus, just and honest, judging not by the rules of this earth, but by the righteousness of heaven. Giving us the ultimate ability to judge ourselves. By giving us the opportunity to either accept Him and be Born Again and thus Saved spending all eternity with Him, or by rejecting Him and then condemning ourselves to eternal damnation. Let us continue: 5. And righteousness shall be the girdle of His loins, and faithfulness the girdle of His reins. The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. This is a description of not now, but of the thousand year rule of Christ on earth, immediately following the seven years of tribulation starting with the Rapture of His church and ending with the casting of satan into the bottomless pit. What a wonderful time that will be.

10. ¶ And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and His rest shall be glorious. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. What a wonderful time of the year, this time we call CHRISTmas, for look again at the words used by God Almighty through His prophet, His servant Isaiah to describe Himself while He was on earth in the body of a man named Jesus.

Now before we go to the next reading. Let me add in a word here if I may. If you will email me at click to mail with the name of someone special in your family, along with his, hers, or their favorite CHRISTmas tune, we will put it on the front page where it now says, Merry CHRISTmas Tyler. Ok, on to Isaiah 2:1-5

Isaiah 2:1-5
1. ¶ The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD'S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. That is you, the prophet is talking about, you who seek His word and do what is right in His sight. You fathers that are taking the time to teach your children the ways of the Lord, teaching them who this Jesus is that we have given our lives to.

4. And He shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD. This again talks of the thousand year reign of Christ, a time when there will be no wars, for God Himself, Jesus will be our King, He will judge and rule the earth. Praise God.

And may the Lord Jesus bless you all for taking the time to come to Him learning and teaching about Him and being the minister you should be to your own families. Praise God and God's blessings upon you and yours.

Amen.

Fig tree?


Oh my, how many folks didn't understand what I was talking about when I referred to the fact that Jesus forgave while He was hanging the cross, and didn't do as I would have done by cursing them as HE had the fig tree. So, let me point out the Scripture, which I think, believe and pray will help your understanding. You will also understand that Jesus controls everything, not just the things we ask Him to control.

Matthew 21: verses 18-22
18. ¶ Now in the morning as Jesus returned into the city, He hungered. And when He saw a fig tree in the way, He came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away. And when His disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!

21. Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

Notice that what the Lord did to the tree was end it's existence, He cursed it so that it was standing dead wood, good for nothing but the fire. Folks to often forget that God can both bless and curse. Why did HE curse the fig tree? Simply because when He wanted fruit from that tree, it was not producing. Up until that time, the tree was lush and green, looked good on the outside and from a distance, but was not bearing any fruit. And as a result , the Lord cursed it and literally condemned it to the fire.

Don't be like that fig tree, being a so called Christian is not enough, you must also be prepared to do the work of the Lord when He crosses your path with a request. That request may come simply as how other people perceive you. Can your neighbors identify you as a Christian? How about your pastor and those you go to church with? If I called your pastor and asked him about you, would he say "Oh, he is on fire for the Lord" or would he say " how I pray for him, I just don't know".

Often times we pray to the Lord that He would cause a solid Christian to come across the path of one of our unsaved friends or family. What if it were you that the Lord choose to send into the path of the one you are praying for? would you be a solid witness for the Lord? Would you be prepared to help that lost soul find the Lord and salvation? Or would you be like that fig tree?

for those who believe the nonsense sprouted by many a left wing preachers, claiming to be fundamental about all who say the sinners prayer are saved, read this: Matthew 7: 21-27
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. 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? Sounds like one powerful preacher to me, cast out demons, done wonderful works, probably cast a mountain or two into the sea, and on top of that, as if that were not enough, prophesied as well. But notice what is missing? Where is the part about preached the gospel? Now look at what happens.

23. And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of Mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

26. And every one that heareth these sayings of Mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

Always be prepared to do the work of the Lord. And just what is that work? Just what He has commanded us to do ;

Mark 16:15
And Jesus said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. How do you prepare yourself for the time when the Lord sends one across your path? Study your Bible, read it and study it, read it in prayer asking for wisdom and understanding. Be not like the fig tree, be not like the house built on sand, for if you are, you may very well hear the words " I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity."

Ok, so that should deal with the fig tree, may the Lord find this answer satisfactory and may those of you that asked as well.

Amen.

Now, dad's let's look at today's Bible lesson for you, your wife and the kids. We are leading up to CHRISTmas and will have a different study each day.

Matthew 12:38-42
38 ¶ Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. But Jesus answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here. The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here. In today's study, the Lord is predicting a number of things. First, He has said no more signs, the only sign they were going to see now would be His death and resurrection three days after His death. That these so called religious leaders, were in for one terrible time when they stood before God almighty for judgement, for the people of one of the most sinful cities ever, Nineveh, repented when they heard Jonah preach, yet the religious leaders of the jews were turning their back on God Almighty Himself. Jesus reminds them that a heathen queen, the queen of Ethiopia traveled from Africa to Jerusalem to hear the wisdom of Solomon, yet these religious leaders, which only had to walk a hundred yards to Hear God Almighty Himself, would not do it. While the queen of Ethiopia heeded the words of Solomon, a humble creation, these religious leaders turned their collective backs on God Almighty Himself and shunned His very words, accusing Him of being satan.

References for you to use:
Read the entire book of Jonah to your family, it is relatively short and should take no more than 10-15 minutes.
For Solomon and the queen: 1 Kings 10:1-13
Accusation of the Jewish leaders: Matthew 12:22-32

Gentlemen, this is the time of the year to give yourself to the Lord as His birthday gift. It is also the time for you to decide to bring your wife and children to salvation with you. And what better way to do both than to have a bible study with your wife and kids each night. The Lord God Yeshua be with you, may He take your name to Jehovah the Father in prayer and in thanks.

Amen.

Forgiveness?


First, special note, to whom ever sent me the email about chat lines, I lost your mail, please resend. But, no child under 21 should be allowed to use any chat lines!
Bob
For the last few days, we have been looking at the Lord's command to forgive our enemies. We have seen that the Lord does not simply recommend that we forgive the likes of Carter, Roosevelt, Bush Sr., Clinton, Gore and Bush Jr., but commands it. We as Born Again believers are to never forget that we are but visitors in this place, that our home is with the Lord throughout all eternity. We are to never forget that as Joseph forgave those whom he trusted and loved, his brothers, after they enslaved him, and sold him into bondage, so are we to forgive.

Now it is time to delve a bit further into God's word, for forgiving doesn't mean dropping your guard or allowing the likes of Clinton to come near your daughters or Gore to come near your sons. It doesn't mean turning your back on the likes of George Bush sr or jr.

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.

Luke 6:29
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.

Notice in Matthew, the Lord tells you that when someone strikes you on the cheek, you are to turn the other cheek, giving them a chance to smack that one as well. You must focus on the ‘Thee" for it is when you are hit you turn the other cheek. In Luke, it is the same thing, when someone does harm to you, forgive them and turn the other cheek.

In all the verses we have studied over the last few days on forgiveness, it was always the command of the Lord to forgive those who did to you, not forgive those who harmed your wife or children.

I want you to read the next verses very carefully. I want you to notice that when Peter drew his sword and cut off the high priest's servant's ear, Jesus did not take him to task, He did not command Peter to get rid of the sword, nor did He condemn Peter.

All four gospels record this event;

Matthew 26:47 to 54
47. ¶ And while Jesus yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people. Now he that betrayed Jesus gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is He: hold Him fast. And forthwith Judas came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed Him.

50. And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took Him. And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest's, and smote off his ear. Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be? Isaiah 50: and 53: 2-11

Mark records it as such;

Mark 14: 43-52
43. ¶ And immediately, while Jesus yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders. And he that betrayed Him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; take him, and lead him away safely. And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to Jesus, and saith, Master, master; and kissed him. And they laid their hands on Him, and took Him.

47. And one of them that stood by drew a sword, and smote a servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear. And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and with staves to take me? I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled.

50. And they all forsook Him, and fled. And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him: And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked. The young man who fled naked and was an eye witness to all that happened is John Mark, the author of the Gospel of Mark.

Luke, the non Jewish doctor who studied, researched and wrote the Gospel of Luke, the only one who was not an eye witness, records the events of that night like this;

Luke 22:47-53
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. But Jesus said unto Him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?

49. When they which were about Him saw what would follow, they said unto Him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword? And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And He touched his ear, and healed him. 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? 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.

Now, how do we know that the one who took out his sword and cut off the ear of the high priest's servant was Peter? Let us read the Gospel of John;

John 18:1-13
1. ¶ When Jesus had spoken these words, He went forth with His disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which He entered, and His disciples. And Judas also, which betrayed Him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with His disciples.

3. Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons. Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon Him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye? They answered Him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am He. And Judas also, which betrayed Him, stood with them. As soon then as He had said unto them, I am He, they went backward, and fell to the ground. 7. Then asked He them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way: That the saying might be fulfilled, which He spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none. John 17:

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. Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?

12. Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound Him, And led Him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year.

Now, notice this, only in the Gospel of Matthew does it even remotely sound as if the Lord is taking Peter to task, but no where does He put Peter down or tell him to get rid of his sword. I want you to get a dictionary, preferably one that is forty or fifty years old or maybe even a Bible Dictionary if you have one and look up the word Zealot. And then I want you to read Luke 6: verse 14. You see, Jesus choose for one of His twelve, a militia member.

Now before we get into the CHRISTmas teachings, let me ask you this question. Do you think the Lord would have chosen a militia member as one of His twelve if He wanted you to surrender your family, your land , you wife and or your children to the likes of Bush and or Gore? Think about it. For we will delve further into this as the days go by.

Now;

This my brothers is the beginning of CHRISTmas, this is the time for you to take the time to do a Bible reading with your family each night. For today, you should sit them down and read Matthew 24:3-14 to them.

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. 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 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.

10. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 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.

14. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations;

Father in heaven, as we approach the time we have set aside to celebrate the birth of Your Son Jesus, we pray that You will help our fathers to be men to their families, men who will do for their families what Your Son Jesus has done for His Church. And help our children to hunger for you and Your Word, Jesus. And guide our wives to be as Sarah, whose daughter they are, by loving, respecting and honoring their husbands, as Sarah called Abraham lord, let them also follow in the words of their husbands. Amen

The weekend of December 1,2 &3, 2000 AD

So can we forgive the Gore Bush fiasco?


The rape of our country over the last 100 years by those we have entrusted with the presidency? Can we forgive them for the systematic destruction and elimination of our Constitutional rights? As we read over the last two days', yes we must, for the Lord has commanded us to and has shown us His example of forgiveness on the cross that He, unlike those we choose to lead us, leads by example. But, what about humble, sinful man, can we forgive? Has there been anyone in history who had his freedom sold down the drain by those he trusted, who endured the things we have endured and forgiven?

If you have real player, sit back get comfortable and listen, if not, take your Bible, and read Genesis chapters 37 through 47.

verse37

verse38

verse39

verse40

verse41

verse42

verse43

verse44

verse45

verse46

verse47

May the Lord God Creator of the universe, help you, me and ours through this time, for remember, what the Lord Jesus has so clearly stated when being tortured and interrogated by the Roman Governor and the Jewish High Priest. In answer to the question "are you a King?"

Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. John 18:36

If earth is not the Lord's kingdom, if it is not His home, why should we, His Born Again brothers and sisters, think it is ours? Look at the words of the Apostle Peter. Read verse 17 carefully, see the word sojourning? That means visiting, not living in your home, but visiting.

1 Peter 1:13-23
13 ¶ Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as He which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;

16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:

18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, who by Him, do you believe in the God, that raised Him up from the dead, and gave Him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God. Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

Amen

Could we forgive?


If Vice President Albert Arnold Gore Junior finds a judge to over rule the vote of the people of the state of Florida and give the election to him, should we forgive him? Could we forgive him?

If Vice President Albert Arnold Gore Junior doesn't steal the election and Governor George Herbert Walker Bush Junior does take the mantle of the presidency and then holds true to what he is now mumbling about, placing left leaning democrats in his cabinet. After all that those who have supported him have gone through, after the long and protracted legal and vocal fights against them and because of them that we have endured, should we forgive 'W'? For that matter, could we forgive him? Is it possible for us to forgive one more unjust, lying, corrupt, "sell the American people, the Christians and the patriots down the drain" politician?

Jesus tells us we must, He tells us that in order to be forgiven, we must forgive. Easier said than done though. For could we tolerate more of the same last twelve years? Can we endure the knowledge that millions more babies will be slaughtered while they sleep in the supposed safety of their mother's womb? If a George Herbert Walker Bush junior's presidency turns out to be as liberal and extreme left wing anti US Constitution as the presidency of George Herbert Walker Bush the first, could we bear it? Should we forgive him? Could we forgive him? For that matter do we even want to forgive him?

Jesus teaches us and commands us that we must.

Matthew 6:14&15
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.

Mark 11:25&26
And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

Luke 6:37
Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

Have you ever wondered just how serious Jesus is about forgiving those who treat you wrong? Well think about this, as the Lord hung on that cross, instead of calling down a zillion angels with slaughter weapons to avenge Him, instead of cursing them as He did the fig tree:

He instead said:
Luke 23:34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

For the weekend thought, we will look at another example of forgiveness, for, compared to us, it is easy for the Lord to forgive. But what about sinful man, can sinful man forgive such grievous things? Can human man forgive having his freedom stolen by those he trust? Can mortal man be as forgiving as the Lord? Come see this weekend.

May the Lord Yeshua, the Messiah, the only begotten Son of God be with you, me and our nation, may He forgive us and this once Christian nation that He gave us.
Amen.

I would cry to the USA;


A prayer taken from Psalm 149

Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, sing out His praises in the churches of Born Again Saints. Let us rejoice in Him that made us: let the little brothers and sisters of Christ be joyful in their King, their Saviour, their Lord, their God. Let the Born Again Christians of the USA praise His name. Let them praise it in the dance: let them sing praises unto Him with their voices, with the timbrel, the trumpet, the stringed instruments and harp. For the LORD takes pleasure in His people and their praises and worship to Him: He will beautify the meek, the repentant, the one who cries out to Him seeking everlasting life through the name of Jesus, with His salvation. Let the Born Again Saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud while awake and asleep, while at work and at rest, while at play and in while deep thought, let them think first of what HE says and obey His rules and laws before doing or saying anything. Let us not be correct in the eyes of the world, but in the eyes of Him who through a thought created the world and all that is in it, on it, and around it.

Let always the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand; so as to praise God and execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people who have turned from Him; To bind corrupt and heathen presidents and governors with chains, and to cast the corrupt politician, judges, police and others whom God has allowed to have authority in prisons; To execute upon them the judgment written in the words and laws of God Almighty: this honor and duty have all His Born Again Saints. Praise ye the LORD.
Amen.

Time, is God giving us more time?


Wow, this election think is really getting to be something. Florida finally makes it official that Gov. Bush is the winner and therefore, the President Elect, and Clinton says no. No, he will not honor that which Florida and the rest of the country has done, but will instead refuse to authorize the establishment of a transition team to work with the president Elects men in order to establish a smooth transition from the Clinton regime to the Bush rule.

Think perhaps God is giving us more time? Time for what you ask. Time to get right with Him and to convince Him through prayer and fasting to install one in the office of the presidency that will do what is right in His sight and lead this nation back to it's Christian roots. Oh, I know the secular historians and teachers teach today that this country was not founded on Christian principals, but they do lie. For there is no truth to be found in them, for they have chosen to follow satan, the father of all liars.

But for those very few of us who have chosen to follow the Christ, Jesus, we know better. We know that if we, as a remnant do worship the Living God, the God who came to earth in the form a man named Jesus, who shed His sacred blood, giving us the opportunity to find salvation through Him, will only turn to Him, all things are possible. Even to His placing one in the office of the president that isn't even in the race. If God so choose, I could be president, not by running for office, just by His desire. How do we get God to put one in office that would worship Him and not satan? By prayer, by going to Him in repentance and in prayer. For God is merciful, He is patient and He is always willing to forgive those who fear Him.

3,000 years ago, it was the children of Israel, the Jews, that were the chosen ones of God, today it is the Born Again Christians. The land was Israel, now it is the USA. Read and learn from the perfect history book, the Holy Bible, change the word Israel in your mind to USA.

2 Kings 17:7-20
7. ¶ For so it was, that the children of Israel had sinned against the LORD their God, which had brought them up out of the land of Egypt, from under the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and had feared other gods, and walked in the statutes of the heathen, whom the LORD cast out from before the children of Israel, and of the kings of Israel, which they had made. Did not God cast out the heathen that was in this land, the USA, before we came?

9. And the children of Israel did secretly those things that were not right against the LORD their God, and they built them high places in all their cities, from the tower of the watchmen to the fenced city. And they set them up images and groves in every high hill, and under every green tree: And there they burnt incense in all the high places, as did the heathen whom the LORD carried away before them; and wrought wicked things to provoke the LORD to anger: For they served idols, whereof the LORD had said unto them, Ye shall not do this thing. Do we not the same? Do we not, as a nation, follow false gods, the gods of hinduism, paganism, secularism, islam, etc? Do we not honor the wicca witch? Have we not accepted as good, homosexuality and lesbianism?

13. Yet the LORD testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, and by all the seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments and my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets. Has not God sent tons of gospel preaching evangelists and preachers to preach and warn against sin, to warn against the way this country is going?

14. Notwithstanding they would not hear, but hardened their necks, like to the neck of their fathers, that did not believe in the LORD their God. And they rejected His statutes, and His covenant that He made with their fathers, and His testimonies which He testified against them; and they followed vanity, and became vain, and went after the heathen that were round about them, concerning whom the LORD had charged them, that they should not do like them. The only way a true Gospel preaching preacher gets on the public airwaves today is either by accident or by buying air time, yet the heathen is on the news all day and night. Which of you can list the ten commandments? But how many of you know by heart the phrases claiming the false constitutional premise of separation of church and state? How many of you have fallen in line with the garbage of "love the sinner but hate the sin"? You know the lies, but not the commands of God. Think about it?

16. And they left all the commandments of the LORD their God, and made them molten images, even two calves, and made a grove, and worshiped all the host of heaven, and served Baal. Walked into a Roman Catholic church recently? No? than perhaps you should. What is the follower of islam bowing to in the east? A city? What are those totem poles built by the new favorite of the secular culture, the native American? Heathens all, worshiper of false gods, worshipers of the creation instead of the Creator.

17. And they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire, and used divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger. In polite society and in the politically correct arena of the airwaves and public schools it is called a woman's choice, or at very worst, abortion. It is infanticide, it is the offering up of innocent blood to the god baal, satan! It is murder and we as a nation are to cowardly to even thing about stopping it. And,

Therefore the LORD was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight:

there was none left but the tribe of Judah only. Also Judah kept not the commandments of the LORD their God, but walked in the statutes of Israel which they made. And the LORD rejected all the seed of Israel, and afflicted them, and delivered them into the hand of spoilers, until he had cast them out of his sight.

But God always saves a remnant, a few who are His and have not bowed their knee to baal. And it is that few who must cry out to God, not that this nation deserves another chance, not that this nation doesn't deserve the wrath of God, but because there are still those out there whom we love and pray for daily for their salvation. And for that reason, we need more time, we need a little help and having one in the office of the US Presidency that will do what is right in the sight of the Lord, one who would tear down the evil in the country, one who would clean up the air waves, eliminate the abortionist and his alter to baal. One like that would do a great deal in helping us lead those who we pray for to the Lord. Then, at least they would be making and intelligent decision, and would not end up in hell by default.

For God repeatedly tells us that if we will but return to Him He will forgive and rescue us. Oh Lord Jesus, please accept this our prayer, as we ask Thee to forgive us and give us another chance. Forgive us for the things we have said, done. Thought and dreamt Lord that have offended Thee, forgive us Lord and rescue us, give us one that will lead us to you and not away from You. Give us one that will strive to do what is right in Your sight, one who will seek Your face, Your wisdom and Your truths before making any decisions. Give us one unto like him in psalm 101. Thank you Lord.

Amen.

Mondayf November 27th, 2000 AD

Well, again, good morning Mr. President elect Bush.


Well, for the second time this month we have awoken to the news that Governor George Herbert Walker Bush is the President Elect. And once again we are hearing Senator Lieberman and Vice President Gore crying and throwing a temper tantrum. Doesn't it make you wonder about the type and quality men we have in Washington? Gore and Lieberman are crying about not every vote having been counted, while at the same time, they worked diligently to make sure that 60% of the military absentee ballots sent to the state of Florida were not accepted and therefore uncounted. They even went to the great lengths of hiring a lawyer to write a five page letter to those of like mind, on how to legally disqualify military absentee ballots.

Now that it is over and Governor Bush has won the State of Florida, isn't it sad to think that the likes of Gore and Lieberman could garner 49% of the vote? Isn't it sad to think that Jews went to the polls in over whelming numbers to vote for Lieberman, even though he had been excommunicated and disgraced by the orthodox Jewish council.

How sad it was to receive email after email telling me how we, as Christians, need Governor Bush as president. How about the baby in the womb? Does the baby in the womb who is about to be brought into the planned parenthood abortion mill need Governor Bush as president? I am getting so tired of hearing so called Born Again Believers telling me how good Bush is. Hogwash. Bush goes to a liberal so called Christian church, he condones abortion in the instance of the mother claiming that the baby is the result of rape, or if the baby is, in the claims of the mother, the result of an incestuous relationship with a member of her immediate family. No charges have to be filed, only the claim has to be made and then, in the eyes and mind of President Elect Bush, it is quite alright to slaughter the baby. To take him or her, while he or she is sleeping in the comfort and supposed safety of his or her mother's womb, to an abortion butcher and rip him or her apart or slowly kill him or her by soaking the baby in a strong saline solution. But President elect Bush says' that's ok, cause the baby is the results of a claimed rape or incest.

I will say this and I would defy any to prove me wrong, not based upon how you feel or what you think, but by the word of God, the Holy Bible. No one that supports the killing of the baby in the womb is a Born Again Christian!.

President Elect George Bush is no more a Born Again Christian than vice president Albert Arnold Gore Junior and his little henchman Joe Lieberman. But that is no reason not to be glad that it seems to be over and is even less reason for us to stop praying for Governor Bush. For God can open Bush's Eyes, He can take the wax from his ears, the hardness from his heart and help him to do what is right in God's sight. God can, if we, the remnant pray hard enough, bring even a liberal Methodist so called Christian to salvation. For it is only through the Lord JESUS that the baby in the womb and this nation stand any chance of survival. And it is only thorough the prayers of the remnant that God will hear and respond to our cry for survival and salvation.

May the Lord be with you and yours this day, may He hear our cry and rescue the baby in the womb and this errant nation and his errant people, the back sliding Born Again Believer.

Amen.

Weekend of November 24,25&26, 2000 AD

Will Florida Militia take Florida back?


As I watch the Gore lackeys on the Florida Supreme Court further the efforts of comrade Albert Arnold Gore Junior steal the presidential election, I can not help but wonder if this is where the patriots in Florida will draw the line, or perhaps the governor will find the courage to have the state police arrest these corrupters of justice. They don't have to you know, they could just fall on their knees and ask God's assistance, but alas, most militia members I know are "To smart for that, to sophisticated, to well influenced by ‘science'".

Perhaps what Florida needs, instead of a Jeb or Bubba, is a Gideon. Let's look at Gideon, a man after God's own heart, but one not afraid to question God as well. Perhaps it is the human, scared, doubting aspect of Gideon that so attracted him to God.

Judges 6: 1-30
1. And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD: and the LORD delivered them into the hand of Midian seven years. And the hand of Midian prevailed against Israel: and because of the Midianites the children of Israel made them the dens which are in the mountains, and caves, and strong holds. When the Midians came, they came in such great numbers and force that the Israelites actually abandoned their homes and hid in caves.

3. And so it was, when Israel had sown, that the Midianites came up, and the Amalekites, and the children of the east, even they came up against them; And they encamped against them, and destroyed the increase of the earth, till thou come unto Gaza, and left no sustenance for Israel, neither sheep, nor ox, nor ass. For they came up with their cattle and their tents, and they came as grasshoppers for multitude; for both they and their camels were without number: and they entered into the land to destroy it. And Israel was greatly impoverished because of the Midianites; and the children of Israel cried unto the LORD. Between the Midianites and their camels and other animals, they ate everything in sight, leaving the children of Israel with empty stomachs, kind of a forced fast. And then they prayed.

7. And it came to pass, when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD because of the Midianites, That the LORD sent a prophet unto the children of Israel, which said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I brought you up from Egypt, and brought you forth out of the house of bondage; And I delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of all that oppressed you, and drave them out from before you, and gave you their land; And I said unto you, I am the LORD your God; fear not the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but ye have not obeyed my voice. We shouldn't need to see God dry up the Jordan, we should be able to look around at the trees and grass and realize how all powerful God Almighty is, for which of us can create even one little handful of dirt from which all plant life springs.

11. And there came an angel of the LORD, and sat under an oak which was in Ophrah, that pertained unto Joash the Abiezrite: and his son Gideon threshed wheat by the winepress, to hide it from the Midianites. And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him, and said unto him, The LORD is with thee, thou mighty man of valour.

13. And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the LORD be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt? but now the LORD hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites. Gideon isn't doubting, he is simply asking a logical question. IF You're with us, how come these heathens are cleaning our clock. How many of you have asked God similar questions? Questions like, "Lord why do you let them kill babies?" Or "Lord what have we done to deserve the likes of Bill Clinton?"

14. And the LORD looked upon him, and said, Go in this thy might, and thou shalt save Israel from the hand of the Midianites: have not I sent thee? And Gideon said unto Him, Oh my Lord, wherewith shall I save Israel? behold, my family is poor in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father's house. 16. And the LORD said unto him, Surely I will be with thee, and thou shalt smite the Midianites as one man. And Gideon said unto Him, If now I have found grace in Thy sight, then shew me a sign that Thou talkest with me. Depart not hence, I pray thee, until I come unto thee, and bring forth my present, and set it before thee. And He said, I will tarry until thou come again.

19. And Gideon went in, and made ready a kid, and unleavened cakes of an ephah of flour: the flesh he put in a basket, and he put the broth in a pot, and brought it out unto Him under the oak, and presented it. And the angel of God said unto him, Take the flesh and the unleavened cakes, and lay them upon this rock, and pour out the broth. And he did so. Then the angel of the LORD put forth the end of the staff that was in His hand, and touched the flesh and the unleavened cakes; and there rose up fire out of the rock, and consumed the flesh and the unleavened cakes. Then the angel of the LORD departed out of his sight. And when Gideon perceived that He was an angel of the LORD, Gideon said, Alas, O Lord GOD! for because I have seen an angel of the LORD face to face. And the LORD said unto him, Peace be unto thee; fear not: thou shalt not die. Think Gideon is convinced?

24. Then Gideon built an altar there unto the LORD, and called it Jehovah shalom: unto this day it is yet in Ophrah of the Abiezrites. And it came to pass the same night, that the LORD said unto him, Take thy father's young bullock, even the second bullock of seven years old, and throw down the altar of Baal that thy father hath, and cut down the grove that is by it: And build an altar unto the LORD thy God upon the top of this rock, in the ordered place, and take the second bullock, and offer a burnt sacrifice with the wood of the grove which thou shalt cut down.

27. Then Gideon took ten men of his servants, and did as the LORD had said unto him: and so it was, because he feared his father's household, and the men of the city, that he could not do it by day, that he did it by night. And when the men of the city arose early in the morning, behold, the altar of Baal was cast down, and the grove was cut down that was by it, and the second bullock was offered upon the altar that was built. And they said one to another, Who hath done this thing? And when they enquired and asked, they said, Gideon the son of Joash hath done this thing.

30. Then the men of the city said unto Joash, Bring out thy son, that he may die: because he hath cast down the altar of Baal, and because he hath cut down the grove that was by it. And Joash said unto all that stood against him, Will ye plead for Baal? will ye save him? he that will plead for him, let him be put to death whilst it is yet morning: if he be a god, let him plead for himself, because one hath cast down his altar. So the men of the city want to kill Gideon, Joash's youngest son, but Joash challenges them, saying if baal is a god, let him do something about it.

32. Therefore on that day he (Gideon's father Joash) called him (Gideon) Jerubbaal, saying, Let Baal plead against him, because he hath thrown down his altar. Then all the Midianites and the Amalekites and the children of the east were gathered together, and went over, and pitched in the valley of Jezreel.

34. But the Spirit of the LORD came upon Gideon, and he blew a trumpet; and Abiezer was gathered after him. And he sent messengers throughout all Manasseh; who also was gathered after him: and he sent messengers unto Asher, and unto Zebulun, and unto Naphtali; and they came up to meet them. Abiezer is part of a tribe, Manasseh, Asher, Zebulun and Naphtali are tribes of Israel, named after the twelve sons of Jacob, the son of Isaac, the only son of Isaac by Sarah.

36. And Gideon said unto God, If thou wilt save Israel by mine hand, as thou hast said, Behold, I will put a fleece of wool in the floor; and if the dew be on the fleece only, and it be dry upon all the earth beside, then shall I know that thou wilt save Israel by mine hand, as thou hast said. And it was so: for he rose up early on the morrow, and thrust the fleece together, and wringed the dew out of the fleece, a bowl full of water.

39. And Gideon said unto God, Let not thine anger be hot against me, and I will speak but this once: let me prove, I pray thee, but this once with the fleece; let it now be dry only upon the fleece, and upon all the ground let there be dew. And God did so that night: for it was dry upon the fleece only, and there was dew on all the ground. Now Gideon is convinced and now he is willing to do God's bidding by ending the Midian oppression. Let's take a look at just what type and amount of help God is going to give Gideon.

Judges 7: 1-25
1. Then Jerubbaal, who is Gideon, and all the people that were with him, rose up early, and pitched beside the well of Harod: so that the host of the Midianites were on the north side of them, by the hill of Moreh, in the valley. And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people that are with thee are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel vaunt themselves against me, saying, Mine own hand hath saved me. Now therefore go to, proclaim in the ears of the people, saying, Whosoever is fearful and afraid, let him return and depart early from mount Gilead. And there returned of the people twenty and two thousand; and there remained ten thousand. Gideon's army just shrunk by two thirds.

4. And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people are yet too many; bring them down unto the water, and I will try them for thee there: and it shall be, that of whom I say unto thee, This shall go with thee, the same shall go with thee; and of whomsoever I say unto thee, This shall not go with thee, the same shall not go.

5. So he brought down the people unto the water: and the LORD said unto Gideon, Every one that lappeth of the water with his tongue, as a dog lappeth, him shalt thou set by himself; likewise every one that boweth down upon his knees to drink. And the number of them that lapped, putting their hand to their mouth, were three hundred men: but all the rest of the people bowed down upon their knees to drink water. Three hundred? Gideon is going against the armies of the Midianites with three hundred men?

7. And the LORD said unto Gideon, By the three hundred men that lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into thine hand: and let all the other people go every man unto his place. So the people took victuals in their hand, and their trumpets: and he sent all the rest of Israel every man unto his tent, and retained those three hundred men: and the host of Midian was beneath him in the valley. And it came to pass the same night, that the LORD said unto him, Arise, get thee down unto the host; for I have delivered it into thine hand. But if thou fear to go down, go thou with Phurah thy servant down to the host: And thou shalt hear what they say; and afterward shall thine hands be strengthened to go down unto the host. Then went he down with Phurah his servant unto the outside of the armed men that were in the host.

12. And the Midianites and the Amalekites and all the children of the east lay along in the valley like grasshoppers for multitude; and their camels were without number, as the sand by the sea side for multitude. And when Gideon was come, behold, there was a man that told a dream unto his fellow, and said, Behold, I dreamed a dream, and, lo, a cake of barley bread tumbled into the host of Midian, and came unto a tent, and smote it that it fell, and overturned it, that the tent lay along. And his fellow answered and said, This is nothing else save the sword of Gideon the son of Joash, a man of Israel: for into his hand hath God delivered Midian, and all the host. And it was so, when Gideon heard the telling of the dream, and the interpretation thereof, that he worshipped, and returned into the host of Israel, and said, Arise; for the LORD hath delivered into your hand the host of Midian.

16. And he divided the three hundred men into three companies, and he put a trumpet in every man's hand, with empty pitchers, and lamps within the pitchers. And he said unto them, Look on me, and do likewise: and, behold, when I come to the outside of the camp, it shall be that, as I do, so shall ye do. When I blow with a trumpet, I and all that are with me, then blow ye the trumpets also on every side of all the camp, and say, The sword of the LORD, and of Gideon.

19. So Gideon, and the hundred men that were with him, came unto the outside of the camp in the beginning of the middle watch; and they had but newly set the watch: and they blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers that were in their hands. And the three companies blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers, and held the lamps in their left hands, and the trumpets in their right hands to blow withal: and they cried, The sword of the LORD, and of Gideon. And they stood every man in his place round about the camp: and all the host ran, and cried, and fled. And the three hundred blew the trumpets, and the LORD set every man's sword against his fellow, even throughout all the host: and the host fled to Bethshittah in Zererath, and to the border of Abelmeholah, unto Tabbath. Now God has put the victory in Gideon's hand, and it is quite clear to all that they did nothing, it was the Lord who fought the battle for them, so now, God allows all those who were found unfit to serve His purpose in the beginning to join in. But as for those three hundred, think of the faith they must have had, they followed the Lord and Gideon as a child follows his mom and dad. Blindly in absolute faith.

23. And the men of Israel gathered themselves together out of Naphtali, and out of Asher, and out of all Manasseh, and pursued after the Midianites. And Gideon sent messengers throughout all mount Ephraim, saying, Come down against the Midianites, and take before them the waters unto Bethbarah and Jordan. Then all the men of Ephraim gathered themselves together, and took the waters unto Bethbarah and Jordan. And they took two princes of the Midianites, Oreb and Zeeb; and they slew Oreb upon the rock Oreb, and Zeeb they slew at the winepress of Zeeb, and pursued Midian, and brought the heads of Oreb and Zeeb to Gideon on the other side Jordan.

Would not going to God for help be better than trying to fight on our own? Would it not be better to let God handle the Gores, the Bushes and the rest, rather than our trying to continue to prove that we can do it on our own? Let us turn to God as He would have us to, for He awaits our crying out to Him for help.

Lord God above, please rescue us, give your children in American one more chance to raise up from the mess one that would tear down the grooves we have built to baal, the abortion mills.. Give to us one who will seek thy face and is unafraid to be sure he is dealing with You before leading us off to war. Give us an Ehud, a David, a Gideon. Rescue us Lord from the evil that has covered this nation, the evil that has cloaked this nation in the innocent blood of the baby in the womb. Rescue us from those who have made this nation of yours into the worlds premiere provider of pornography. Rescue us Lord Jesus, be not only our Lord, but our Saviour once again.
Amen.

Take a moment...


Yes, let's take a moment and thank God for the time He has given us. Let us thank Him for giving us the time to become born again. Let us thank Him for the time He has given those who are not born again, for every moment He gives them, gives us one more shot at introducing them to the Word of God, the word of God, the Holy Bible.

John chapter one: verses one, two, and three.
1 ¶ In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.

So as you look around the table, thank God for not one there was created by any other than Him. As you shoo the dog from under the table so that he won't drive your invited guest nuts with his big sad brown eyes. Think of and thank God for without God, there would have been no big brown sad eyes staring up at you and your guest silently begging for the drumstick. For that fact, without God, there would be no dog. Thank God for you family, your home, the turkey on the table and all that is with it. For none came into existence except for and by the command and thought of God. Yes, even thank God for the air we breathe and the gravity that holds us to the earth, for without God there would be no air, no gravity, no earth.

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Genesis 1:1

And if you think of it, thank God for helping me last night. I had changed the filter on our fuel oil tank and somehow lost the prime, by the time I realized it, it was dark and threatening to get down into the low twenties high teens. After much struggle and searching and praying, I finally found the correct paperwork for how to prime this particular furnace pump. For it was not the original pump, but one that could lift fuel when the heater is higher than the tank. By that time it was a little over fifty in the house and Cec had put on another sweater. Never complained thank God, but now had on a sweater and an afghan. Well, as always God came through and had me look at a single little piece of paper with the others, but not part of the others if you know what I mean. On this little sheet of paper was the directions for how to prime this particular pump. THANK YOU JESUS!

So, amongst the other things you are thanking God for this day, His Son, our Saviour should be at the top of your list. And my heating system somewhere around the dogs eyes.

May The Lord God of the universe bless you and yours this day, may He bless you, your mind, your heart, your soul and your table and all that you do.

Amen

Wenesday November 22nd, 2000 AD

But but pastor, ...


Oh how tired I am getting of receiving email telling me to give you more time. Of telling me that you need more time to decided, Christ or satan. Of telling me that I am demanding to much of you when I keep preaching John 3:1-18. Or how I sound like a Zealot, and should be more compassionate and willing to give you more time.

Hogwash!

What are you going to do when Gore steals the election or Bush is crowned winner and in a sincere desire to appease the leftist in the press and his dad's old one world government friends sends the heavily armed batf to your door to demand your light weapons. Will you then make a decision? Or will yo cry out to them, "give me more time", Don't be so pushy", "Stop being such Zealots, be more tolerant"? Are these the things you'll ay to them? No, I thing not, I think you'll make a decision fast, one to either fight or to cower, but a decision just the same.

But this morning let's talk about a time of real decision that you may be faced with. While normally the daily thought is written for believers, today's is written with the non believer in mind, it is written for those of you who are sitting on the fence, unsure of where you will spend eternity and having not yet accepted Jesus as your Master, Saviour, Creator and God. For you see, if at this very instant the Lord decided to come back for His church, we who are Saved would be gone.

We call it Rapture and for just a moment let us assume that it just happened, you're lying in bed, it is nine o'clock Sunday morning and your wife is asking you, for the umteenth time, if you would like to come to church with her and the kids, you shake your head and tell her you have to much to do, to many things that need doing. Besides, you say, "I have plenty of time for that Christ stuff.". When suddenly, you're talking to a pile of clothes, your wife just disappeared, you run into your six year olds room and he too is gone, only a pile of warm clothes attest to the fact that he was there just a moment ago.

Party time pal, you have just been left behind, you turn on the tv and find that you have tons of company for the air waves are full of people talking about those who just disappeared off the face of the earth, planes crashing for lack of a pilot, cars, trucks and busses running amuck because their drivers just suddenly disappeared.

Now let us move ahead three years and seven months, if you are still around and that is a mighty big if, for half the worlds population that was left behind are dead, and if you are one of those still here, now you will make a choice, now you will be faced with a choice like this. Take the mark or die. Take the mark of allegiance to satan or have your head cut off. Take the mark and live for a while, maybe, ensuring yourself of all eternity in hell, writhing in pain and suffering in total darkness or refuse the mark have your head cut off and spend eternity with the Lord Jesus your Creator. Guess what you won't do, you will not procrastinate. You will either pledge your loyalty and soul to satan and have the mark of the beast put on and in you, selling your soul to satan, or you will walk up to the guillotine and have your head cut off and dropped into a basket to the thunderous cheers of those who took the mark. They will not be cheering you and your decision, they will be cheering the guillotine.

Why not choose today? Why not go with your wife and kids? Let me assure you of one more thing, the day after the rapture. There will be no daily Christian thought posted by me, for I will be with those you loved who were not left behind.

Revelation 20: verses 1-10
1 ¶ And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, and cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, and shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Now read these next chapters very carefully, for if you made the wrong decision and saved your head by taking the mark or were one of those that died during the first 3 years and seven months without first accepting Jesus, your eternal future are described in detail here.

11 ¶ And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

Now read this next verse, verse 15 very carefully, for it describes exactly and unambiguously what happens to all who are not Born Again, for only those who are Born Again have their names in the book of life.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

What about you, what choice will or have you made? Will you spend eternity in light and glory with the Lord Jesus, Messiah Yeshua? Or will you choose either purposely or through default to spend eternity in utter darkness with constant pain and suffering in hell with satan?

Your salvation, your future eternity, your choice. But as for me and mine. We will serve the Lord God Creator of all the heavens and earth, Messiah Yeshua the Creator and Saviour of the world.

Oh Lord God above, please open the eyes of those patriots who read and hear about this thought, help them Lord for was not one of your twelve Simon, a zealot, a militia member? Please Lord,
amen.

Operation head of the snake...


As we look south to Florida, we see one of the most dangerous threats happening to our liberty, our freedom, our Constitution and our God given rights. It appears that the Florida Supreme Court may very well take upon themselves the option of over ruling the legislature, the governor the people of the state and freedom of the ballot box itself and decided whom is best in their eyes to rule this country.

I often wonder what it will take to get Americans to fight for their own freedom, they fought for the freedom of Europe twice in the last century, freedom for Africans in America in the century before and freedom for themselves the century before that, but what about now? What will it take to convince Americans today that they are less free today then the Europeans of the last century, the Africans of the century before or their forefathers in the century before that. What will it take to get Americans to demand and be willing to take back their freedom?

And if Americans ever does find the courage to face their enslavers, who are really nothing more than public servants and their lackeys, what would it be like and how would it be done?

To fight an open revolution in these Untied States would cause destruction of proportions hitherto unseen. For unlike our forefathers who fought with muskets and cannon, today's revolution would be fought with modern weapons of war. Conservatively the death count from nukes, chemicals and other weapons of mass destruction along with the deaths due to bombs, shells and bullets, would easily number 25 million, double that for wounded, another 50 million add to that another 50 million refuges leaving the US and flooding the soil of Canada, Mexico and other countries on this continent and others. And you have disruption on a scale never before seen. And just try to imagine the damage done to the soil and environment.

But, if we would simply turn to God, perhaps we would not need to face another revolution for our freedom, perhaps God would give to us a leader like Ehud. A man of God who simply cut off the head of the snake.

Let us look at Judges 3:12-30
12. ¶ And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD: and the LORD strengthened Eglon the king of Moab against Israel, because they had done evil in the sight of the LORD. And Eglon gathered unto him the children of Ammon and Amalek, and went and smote Israel, and possessed the city of palm trees. So the children of Israel served Eglon the king of Moab eighteen years. How long have we as a nation been serving the UN?

15 . But when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, the LORD raised them up a deliverer, Ehud the son of Gera, a Benjamite, a man lefthanded: and by him the children of Israel sent a present unto Eglon the king of Moab. Is it not time for us to cry out to the LORD our GOD, "Messiah Yeshua save us."? Is it not time for us to beseech Him for a rescuer?

16. But Ehud made him a dagger which had two edges, of a cubit length; and he did gird it under his raiment upon his right thigh. And he brought the present unto Eglon king of Moab: and Eglon was a very fat man. And when he had made an end to offer the present, he sent away the people that bare the present. But he himself turned again from the quarries that were by Gilgal, and said, I have a secret errand unto thee, O king: who said, Keep silence. And all that stood by him went out from him. And Ehud came unto him; and he was sitting in a summer parlour, which he had for himself alone. And Ehud said, I have a message from God unto thee. And he arose out of his seat. And Ehud put forth his left hand, and took the dagger from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly: And the haft also went in after the blade; and the fat closed upon the blade, so that he could not draw the dagger out of his belly; and the dirt came out. Eglon was the king, he was the head of the snake, and it was he whom the Lord simply choose to eliminate at the hand of Ehud.

23. Then Ehud went forth through the porch, and shut the doors of the parlour upon him, and locked them. When he was gone out, his servants came; and when they saw that, behold, the doors of the parlour were locked, they said, Surely he covereth his feet in his summer chamber.

25. And they tarried till they were ashamed: and, behold, he opened not the doors of the parlour; therefore they took a key, and opened them: and, behold, their lord was fallen down dead on the earth. And Ehud escaped while they tarried, and passed beyond the quarries, and escaped unto Seirath. And it came to pass, when he was come, that he blew a trumpet in the mountain of Ephraim, and the children of Israel went down with him from the mount, and he before them. And he said unto them, Follow after me: for the LORD hath delivered your enemies the Moabites into your hand. And they went down after him, and took the fords of Jordan toward Moab, and suffered not a man to pass over. And they slew of Moab at that time about ten thousand men, all lusty, and all men of valour; and there escaped not a man. Once the head is taken away from the snake, how hard is it to destroy the rest of the snake?

30. So Moab was subdued that day under the hand of Israel. And the land had rest fourscore years. Could we not use eighty years of peace from the UN, the abortionist, those who claim to be care givers while dispensing drugs designed to kill the sick, the wounded and the baby in the womb?

Join me in praying that Yeshua will raise up for us men like Ehud. For while there was but one Eglon then, today there are many in each of our states. Please Lord turn not Thy face from Thy people America, please give unto us one who will seek Your face and do what is right in Your Sight and rescue us from the evil that is here.
Amen.

Who is Caesar?


Jesus, the CHRIST, has told us that we are to render unto Caesar what is Caesar's and unto GOD that which is GOD'S. That is pretty easy in the rest of the world, but what about here in the USA? Throughout the rest of the world, Caesar is the leader of the government, but here in the USA, Caesar is the people and the US Constitution, those who serve in office, those who call themselves and are referred to by the communist media as our leaders, are in reality nothing but public servants.

That said, today we approach another fork in the road, today the Florida Supreme Court is doing something they should not be doing, putting themselves in place to decide who the next president will be. Any decision they render other than to simply say that they have no jurisdiction in this matter and uphold the decision made by the Secretary of State in Florida will be wrong. And has the potential of causing this nation to rebel. But what about us, what do we as Christian Patriots do?

We do what Jesus has told us to do, we put our faith and trust in Him, we pray to Him and ask us to have wisdom, understanding and the strength do what is right in His sight.

Let us look at and study the words of the Lord Jesus;

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. Put aside your political loyalties for the time and focus on your love and loyalty to He who went up on the cross for you. Put your loyalty and faith in Jesus and pray to Him for His intervention.

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? 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? Think about it, are we not made in God's very image? Was it not us God gave dominion of the earth to? Did not God give to us the birds of the air and the beasts of the field? So, are we not much more important to Him than the birds of the air? But look at the way God cares for and takes care of the birds. If we put Him first, don't you think He can and will take care of us?

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: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 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? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (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. Turn to God, turn to prayer, turn to His righteousness trust in God, trust that if we pray to Him, He will rescue us. For you can not add an inch to your height, you can not make clothing for yourself that even comes close to the detail of the butterflies wings or the color and glory of the flowers of the field. Stop looking to Caesar and the public servants, stop looking to yourself, look to Jesus for it is He and only He that can get us out of this mess. Am I telling you to throw away your guns? Am I telling you to be unprepared to take this nation back? Am I telling you to be unprepared to defend your family, your home, your brothers and sisters? No absolutely not, I am telling you that unless we do what Jesus wants us to do we are doing it for nothing, for we can not and will not win without His guidance, His help, His blessings and His approval. And the only way we will know what He wants us to do is by going to Him on bended knees and begging Him to tell us. Don't just ask, beg. For He is not your friend, He is your Master, your Creator, your God.

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. Don't focus on what may come about tomorrow, or on the December 18th or January 20th, focus on what is happening today, pray the Lord will end this thing today. Pray that he whom Jesus has chosen will rise up and lead us out of this mess and towards doing what is right in His sight and not continue serving baal.

Oh Lord Jesus, give us the wisdom to either understand Thy will or to at least accept it without question, give us the wisdom to understand that what ever comes of this mess, whether it be punishment for our actions, revolution from the evil that has taken over our government or a change in the leadership of the public servants you choose for us, that we accept it with joy. Knowing that Your will is being done and that as long as we do that which is Right in Your Sight, this time on earth will be the closest we will ever come to hell. May You shine your face upon us, bless us and keep us safe and may You choose to rescue us from the evil and give us a time of peace from satan and his minions within our government and press.

I pray Lord that You will be with those who serve on the Florida Supreme Court this day.
Amen.

Please click here before reading Psalm 117, thanks, Bob.
Psalm 117:
1 ¶ O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.
2 For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD.

Funny isn't it...


If it were not so sad, it would be almost funny. But, the left wing media has actually forced us to back and support one of the two worst men to ever seek the office of the Presidency. Through the manipulation of our emotions, they have backed us into a corner were we now are solidly lined up behind either pro abortion Gore or pro abortion Bush. We are speaking out in favor of pro-one world government Gore or pro one world government Bush, we solidly support pro-China most favored nation status Gore or pro-China most favored nation status Bush. We have lined up solidly behind anti Constitutionalist Gore or anti Constitutionalist Bush. A pro NAFTA Gore or a pro NAFTA Bush. A pro GATT Gore or a pro GATT Bush. My dear brothers and sisters, there are no substantial differences between Gore and Bush. They are both left wing liberal elitist. They both wish to prove to you that their brand of communist can work here in the USA under their particular brand of leadership and with their hand picked commissioners.

In picking Gore or Bush, you have turned your back on the LORD! Turn to God, let Him straighten out this mess, why are you so ready and why are you in such a rush to give up and surrender your God given freedoms? How do you expect either Gore or Bush to satisfy your desires, do you think either Gore or Bush would surrender their freedoms or lives for you? Jesus did!

I firmly believe that we here in theses United States are people of God, but like the Israelites so long ago we have turned from the Lord Jesus and followed after other gods, the god of money, of homosexuality, of abortion, of no personal consequences for our actions. We like the Israelites of four thousand years ago have turned our backs on the Lord who created us and turned instead to the creature created.

Turn with me to Romans the first chapter.

Romans 1:16-18
16. ¶ For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; as Paul is unashamed of the Word of God, so also should we, for as Paul learned from God's Word, the Bible, so can we. God has been faithful to tell us in His Word, what it takes to be rewarded and what it takes to be punished.

Let us skip for just a moment to the book of Judges.

Judges 2:11-14
11. And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and served Baalim: and they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, which brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of the people that were round about them, and bowed themselves unto them, and provoked the LORD to anger. And they forsook the LORD, and served Baal and Ashtaroth. They turned from the Words, the Commands, the precepts of God. They worshiped other Gods, so what did God do?

14. And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he delivered them into the hands of spoilers that spoiled them, and he sold them into the hands of their enemies round about, so that they could not any longer stand before their enemies. Have not the last dozen or so presidents been enemies of the freedoms of the People? Have they not been men who used the office of the presidency to limit and not protect our rights?

What does it take to get God back on our side? To get Him to rescue us? Is it to follow the liberal anti Christ press and be lead like sheep to the slaughter at the alter of Bush or Gore? NO! Look.

Judges 3:9-11
9. And when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, the LORD raised up a deliverer to the children of Israel, who delivered them, even Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother. And the Spirit of the LORD came upon him, and he judged Israel, and went out to war: and the LORD delivered Chushanrishathaim king of Mesopotamia into his hand; and his hand prevailed against Chushanrishathaim. And the land had rest forty years... Did they cry out to man? No they cried out to GOD and when they had, God heard their cry and rescued them.

Let us go back to Romans;

Romans 1:19-32
19. ¶ Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

We often think that Paul is only taking lesbians and homosexuals to task here, but let us look more carefully and after you have read it again, ask yourself this, are we not here in these United States of America doing every bit what Paul has outlined, are we not glorifiers of self and not God, are we not liars, cheaters, gossips, supporters of murders of children, supporters of slavery, supporters of homosexuality and lesbianism. Are we not the worlds largest exporter of money for abortions? Are we not the worlds predominant exporter of pornography?

Forget George Bush and Al Gore, concentrate on prayer to the Father through the Son, beg God to rescue us. For we are every bit the errant children today that the idolatrous Israelites were three thousand years ago. And we deserve the wrath of God, but God is willing to let us off the hook, He has always been, all we need do is ask Him in prayer.

Is it not time to turn to He who so loves you and this country that He came down from earth, was carried as a baby in the womb, delivered and allowed Himself to be sacrificed for your sins, and away from those who take your money, fund the murder of the baby in the womb, pass laws teaching your children that acts that violate God's laws are only acceptable alternative life style?

Oh Father in heaven help us, save us, rescue us from the horrors of the evil one, his minions, his ilk and those who serve him knowingly and unknowingly calling themselves our public leaders. Help us Lord, protect us and give us another chance. Cleanse our nation of the evil that has gripped it and give us a leader who will do what is right in your sight. One who will stop the sacrifice of the baby in the womb to baal. One who will return us to our Christian roots, one who will do what is right in Your site and lead us back to You, or at least not persecute us while he glorifies satan.

Give us a David Lord.
Amen.
Now is the time for us as, Christian Patriots, to keep our powder dry.

Two harlots and a baby boy.


On the Rush Limbaugh show of Thursday November 16th, a man brought up a bit of Scripture and made and excellent point.

1Kings 3:16 thru end
16 ¶ Then came there two women, that were harlots, unto the king, and stood before him. And the one woman said, O my lord, I and this woman dwell in one house; and I was delivered of a child with her in the house. And it came to pass the third day after that I was delivered, that this woman was delivered also: and we were together; there was no stranger with us in the house, save we two in the house. And this woman's child died in the night; because she overlaid it.

20 And she arose at midnight, and took my son from beside me, while thine handmaid slept, and laid it in her bosom, and laid her dead child in my bosom. And when I rose in the morning to give my child suck, behold, it was dead: but when I had considered it in the morning, behold, it was not my son, which I did bear.

22 And the other woman said, Nay; but the living is my son, and the dead is thy son. And this said, No; but the dead is thy son, and the living is my son. Thus they spake before the king. Then said the king, The one saith, This is my son that liveth, and thy son is the dead: and the other saith, Nay; but thy son is the dead, and my son is the living. And the king said, Bring me a sword. And they brought a sword before the king. And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other.

26 Then spake the woman whose the living child was unto the king, for her bowels yearned upon her son, and she said, O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it. But the other said, Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it. Then the king answered and said, Give her the living child, and in no wise slay it: she is the mother thereof. And all Israel heard of the judgment which the king had judged; and they feared the king: for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him, to do judgment.
(KJV)

The harlot who killed her son by crushing him is Gore, the Harlot willing to surrender so that the son might live but ended up with the son just the same, is Bush. The Son is the Constitution, the judge is the people of theses United States. Let us pray to God that the people will show the wisdom of Solomon.

Amen

Thursday November 16th, 2000 AD

Thou shalt not kill,

murder, ratsach Exodus 20:13.
Within the Ten Commandments, the command is clear, thou shalt not kill. The word kill is used many times in the Bible and unless one looks at the Hebrew word, one would think that God might be contradicting Himself within His own book, the Holy Bible. But that is not the case, for the word kill in Exodus 20:13 is the Hebrew word ratsach, ratsach means murder. The commandment therefore would be better translated Thou shalt not murder. And indeed, in many of the newer translations it does in deed say Thou shalt not murder.

So, why are we nit picking one word? Well this, the sixth commandment, may take on new meaning to those who are both Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Jesus Christians and patriots. We may, within the next couple of months, be forced to look at the sixth commandment with new interest, for we indeed may be called forth to rescue this nation from enemies within and or without. For there is a huge difference between the words kill and murder in today's language. To kill, easily could be in self defense or in an effort to win back freedom from those who would take it away. To murder is to without any provocation or justification, to end the life of another. The man protecting his wife and children may kill to keep them safe, an abortionist murders. Can killing be excused by God? Will He forgive us for taking the life of a bad government guy to save the life of a brother or sister, child or wife? Let us never speculate on such issues but instead look at His Word and see what He has taught us by example and by Scripture.

Exodus 2:11-15
11. ¶ And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out unto his brethren, and looked on their burdens: and he spied an Egyptian smiting an Hebrew, one of his brethren. And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand. Moses looked around, noticed that there was no one around to report him, so he snuck up behind the Egyptian, took out his sword and stuck the Egyptian with it, killing him.

13. And when he went out the second day, behold, two men of the Hebrews strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong, Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow? And he said, Who made thee a prince and a judge over us? intendest thou to kill me, as thou killedst the Egyptian? And Moses feared, and said, Surely this thing is known. Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of Midian: and he sat down by a well. Oops, Moses was caught, the very one he rescued from the Egyptians was now going to report him to the authorities, so Moses runs for his life. Moses is a killer on the run and Pharaoh has got a kill on sight order out on Moses.

Will God forgive Moses?

In Jude, chapter one, we find the answer, for God would never leave us with a question of such importance without giving us the answer as well if we simply look long enough and hard enough for it

. Jude 1:1-9
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: Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.

3. Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

5. I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.

9. 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.
As you read the above verses, you'll notice that Jude isn't talking about Moses being forgiven, but instead uses the fact that while satan wanted Moses's soul for committing a murder, God sent Michael the Archangel down to rescue it from satan. Would God bring Moses into heaven, rescue him from satan only to send him to hell later on? Of course not. God sent Michael to get Moses from satan, because what Moses had done was kill an evil government enslaver to rescue a brother.

As we get closer to the time when the evil ones either leave on their won, or we are forced to decide what we will do next, stay close to Jesus, keep Him in your thoughts and be in constant prayer to and with Him. As for His help and protection, and never pull the trigger without first asking His forgiveness for what you are about to do. Keep reminding Him that He has entrusted your wife and children into your care and that you are doing what you believe He would want you to do. Stay close to the Lord my brothers, stay very close, pray over your wife and kids every night, ask God's protection upon them and ask Him to fight this battle for us. Trust in Him, not as the world trust in Him supposedly, but as you know you should. Put all of your faith and trust in the Lord and plead with him to fight this battle for us, for as He was with the children of Israel during the times of Moses and Joshua, so shall He be with us if we only pray long enough and hard enough.

The Lord Yeshua be with me, you, ours and our nation.
Amen.

Wednesday Novenber 15th, 2000 AD

Good morning Mr. President elect Bush.


As I turned on the radio this morning, I couldn't help but notice that the rain had stopped, the clouds were clearing and the suns would be out. As the news came on, the news revealed that Florida had indeed certified the vote count giving the victory to Gov. Bush, now president elect Bush by 300 votes. Praise GOD!

In congratulating Gov. Bush, I would also like to remind him of a few things.

The leftist have just tried to do to you, what they unsuccessfully tried to do to Clarence Thomas 10 years ago or so. I would pray that this has resolved your will to uphold the Constitution and undermine leftist socialist and communist liberalism as it has to Clarence Thomas. Justice Clarence has become, easily, the most consistent on and in his support of the Constitution. I would pray that President Elect Bush would do the same. As Justice Thomas has sought no compromise or allegiances with the enemy, those who would undermine the Constitution, neither should Governor Bush once he assumes the mantel of the presidency. As Justice Thomas has sought no compromise on the Word of God, neither should President elect Bush.

It is time for President elect Bush to rid himself of any thoughts of thanking his enemies and start to realize just who it is that has anointed him to lead this nation.

John 19:1-11
1 ¶ 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.

4 Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, 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 Jesus, 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.

8 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?

11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above:

Remember Mr. President Elect, the power you have been given, has come not from man, nor from the Secretary of States office in Florida, nor from the radio talk shows and internet sites that have so supported you. No, Mr. Bush, that power you have been given has come to you from GOD! Now it is up to you to do that which is Right in the Sight of the Lord or continue in the ways of abortion, acceptance of homosexuality, Christ Denials and doing what is evil in the sight of the LORD thy GOD! You can now choose to spend your time on your knees in prayer to He who has given you this power, or sitting on your backside reading the papers put forth by the enemies of both the LORD and the Constitution such as the new york times, the washington post, the baltimore sun, boston globe and the extreme left wing media as a whole. You can choose to spend your times seeking the face of He who has given you this opportunity or you can waste your time trying to get good coverage from cnn, abc, nbc and the communist televison networks.

You can choose to serve God or you can continue to allow the sacrifice to baal of innocent babies in the womb. Your choice, your legacy. You can start by repealing every gun control law passed since 1965. You can start by eliminating the department of education, batf, and epa. You can start by getting our young men out of harms way and the un. You can start by restoring Specialist New in both rank and prestige and giving him the opportunity to state his case standing beside you in the oval office and on television. Michael New is a hero, Clinton is guilty of treason both should have public trials.

May the Lord Yeshua be with you and may you seek His face and do that which is right in His sight. And may you be a David and not a Saul.

My prayers will be with you, amen.

Anarchy... A complete lack of legal government...


Judges 1: 1-13
1. ¶ Now after the death of Joshua it came to pass, that the children of Israel asked the LORD, saying, Who shall go up for us against the Canaanites first, to fight against them? And the LORD said, Judah shall go up: behold, I have delivered the land into his hand.

3. And Judah said unto Simeon his brother, Come up with me into my lot, that we may fight against the Canaanites; and I likewise will go with thee into thy lot. So Simeon went with him. And Judah went up; and the LORD delivered the Canaanites and the Perizzites into their hand: and they slew of them in Bezek ten thousand men. And they found Adonibezek in Bezek: and they fought against him, and they slew the Canaanites and the Perizzites. But Adonibezek fled; and they pursued after him, and caught him, and cut off his thumbs and his great toes. And Adonibezek said, Threescore and ten kings, having their thumbs and their great toes cut off, gathered their meat under my table: as I have done, so God hath requited me. And they brought him to Jerusalem, and there he died.

8. Now the children of Judah had fought against Jerusalem, and had taken it, and smitten it with the edge of the sword, and set the city on fire. And afterward the children of Judah went down to fight against the Canaanites, that dwelt in the mountain, and in the south, and in the valley. And Judah went against the Canaanites that dwelt in Hebron: (now the name of Hebron before was Kirjatharba:) and they slew Sheshai, and Ahiman, and Talmai. And from thence he went against the inhabitants of Debir: and the name of Debir before was Kirjathsepher:

12. And Caleb said, He that smiteth Kirjathsepher, and taketh it, to him will I give Achsah my daughter to wife. And Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother, took it: and he gave him Achsah his daughter to wife.

When the children of Israel were in Egypt, the had Pharaoh as the governor and his government to contend with. A government that enslaved them. Do you think they might have been better off with no government? How could it have been worse for the Jews under Hitler to have no government? Do you think they would have been worse off without the government that disarmed them and then herded them into the death chambers? How about the 100 million or so Russians that were killed under the Stalin government. Would the children of Russia been better off with no government?

Who is it that tells us that anarchy is so bad anyhow? The government and their lackeys in the press perhaps.

When God rescued the Children of Israel from the hand of the Egyptians, He placed over them Moses and then Joshua, but what about after Joshua died? No government to speak off, yet look what the Lord did for them. Do we need a government that protects those who slaughter millions upon millions of babies in the womb? Would the baby in the womb be better off without that government?

Tonight at five o'clock we will find out if we have a government worthy of keeping or not. For at five tonight Florida will either certify the election and declare the winner and the president elect or succumb to those who have no love of the Constitution, those who use the government not to protect, but to enslave, disarm and murder those that government is supposed to protect. Tonight we find out if the rule of law applies or anarchy. For once the Supreme law of the Land, the US Constitution, has been ignored and defiled, we are no longer a nation with a legitimate government and that my friends is a land of anarchy.

May the Lord Jesus be with us as this day unwinds, may He bless us and keep us safe and in His grasp. May He help us to understand His will, for it is His will that will be done, if the nation falls this day, it is because God has so ordered it.

Amen.

Monday Novenber 13th, 2000 AD

Both Israelites and Bushites can learn...


On Saturday November 11th, 2000, I heard a quote from Governor/President elect George Bush that gave me a moment of great pause. Gov. Bush said, in response to a question concerning what he is doing these days, said "... we are keeping our powder dry."

Saying keep your powder dry infers that soon, you may need dry powder, as in a time of great perils where you will need to rely upon your weapons. It is to imply that we are in imminent danger and need to be prepared to fight our way out of troubles. It is to imply that we, the patriot community, may need to come to his rescue, that we may need to rescue this country from the Gorites and Clintonites and put it into the hands of Governor Bush. It is to take an awful lot for granted on the part of Mr. Bush. It is also a show of ignorance of the Constitution on his part and a true lack of faith in God.

Governor Bush as the Governor of Texas, should get back to governing Texas while the leftists play their silly games. He should stop acting as though he is worthy of our taking up arms and risking all for him. I for one find that ludicrous, I have no idea of what Governor Bush actually stands for that would be worth my or my fellow Christian patriot's lives. Is Governor Bush pro-Christ? He says he is, but do his actions and words prove his speech? I don't think so. Is Governor Bush pro-Life? Again I would have to say no, his claim that it is alright to murder the baby in the womb if the mother claims she was raped or claims the baby is the result of incest leaves me wondering what the baby in the womb did worthy of death in either of these instances.

Is the good governor pro-Constitution? Again I would have to say no. Has anyone one heard him say that he would use the executive pen to disband the black booted thugs of the BATF? Has anyone heard him say he would use the executive pen to restore any of our Constitutional Rights? No? Neither have I. Is he willing to rescind the huge taxes imposed on us by his father and the Clinton regime? Again the answer is and empathic NO!

So, just what is Governor Bush asking us to possibly fight for? Is he wanting us to lay our lives on the line so that we can be rescued from the Clinton/Gore brand of communism so that we can try his brand of communism? Has anyone heard him say that he would open a real investigation into the treasonous behavior of Clinton/Gore and the communist Chinese? Their behavior in Russia? How about what really happened at Waco, Texas, Oklahoma City and Ruby Ridge under his dad's watch. Mr. Bush needs to tell us what's in it for us. What makes him our friend? Or does he like his left wing liberal predecessors just take us for granted? It was reported on the Bush cheerleading site, www.FreeRepublic.com that as many as 647,000 republicans in Florida may not have voted in the latest presidential election. Could that be because Governor Bush is reaching out more for the homosexual, the environmental wackos, the left wing liberal media and the gun grabbing communist anti Christ anti constitutionalists than he is those of us who would understand his "... keeping our powder dry." statement. Governor Bush and those in Israel need to get their faces back into the Word of God. They need to read and learn and then Bush needs to give us reason worthy of fighting. For if Bush is going to act like General Washington, then he better be willing to restore to us those rights given to us by those who fought with General Washington. And like Joshua and General Washington, Mr. Bush had best spend a ton of time on his knees seeking the face of God Almighty. For his hollow words and political statements mean nothing to me. I will fight and call my brothers to fight for Christ, family and freedom. Not Bush, abortion, taxes and communism Bush style!

Like Israel, Bush thinks nice words are worth fighting for.

Joshua 11:1-9
1. ¶ And it came to pass, when Jabin king of Hazor had heard those things, that he sent to Jobab king of Madon, and to the king of Shimron, and to the king of Achshaph, and to the kings that were on the north of the mountains, and of the plains south of Chinneroth, and in the valley, and in the borders of Dor on the west, and to the Canaanite on the east and on the west, and to the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Jebusite in the mountains, and to the Hivite under Hermon in the land of Mizpeh.

4. And they went out, they and all their hosts with them, much people, even as the sand that is upon the sea shore in multitude, with horses and chariots very many. And when all these kings were met together, they came and pitched together at the waters of Merom, to fight against Israel.

6. And the LORD said unto Joshua, Be not afraid because of them: for to morrow about this time will I deliver them up all slain before Israel: thou shalt hough their horses, and burn their chariots with fire.

7. So Joshua came, and all the people of war with him, against them by the waters of Merom suddenly; and they fell upon them. And the LORD delivered them into the hand of Israel, who smote them, and chased them unto great Zidon, and unto Misrephothmaim, and unto the valley of Mizpeh eastward; and they smote them, until they left them none remaining. And Joshua did unto them as the LORD bade him: he houghed their horses, and burnt their chariots with fire.

The only way I would go up against the evils holding this country would be to follow a man who I know to be as close to Jesus as Joshua and General Washington were! And as for you in Israel, stop looking to Clinton and the UN, they can't even find the terrorists that blew up the USS Cole. With all the fire power of NATO, they could not bring little former Yugoslavia to its knees. Look to the Lord thy God, stop being pig headed and turn to the Messiah, or go down in defeat, for like the US, you too have been guilty of offering to many babies up to baal through his high priest the abortionist.

I have not forgotten the first Bush, I will not be tricked by this Bush!

Jesus tells us that we should be willing to die for our friends. But Governor Bush and his left wing ideals are no friends of mine, those babies in the womb or any true Christian or Patriot. May the Lord Jesus see us through this mess. May He bless us and those who bless us and may He deal with those who curse us. May he bless the mother who delivers her baby alive and do to the mother who kills her trapped baby what she and the butcher abortionist high priest of baal have done to the baby. May He give us a leader who will seek His face and be that whom He describes in Psalm 101.

Oh Lord, Give us a General Washington and give Jerusalem a Joshua, please.
Amen.

Bush by 327..


Well the recount in Florida is over and the winner is George Herbert Walker Bush Junior, by 327 votes. Wow, that ads new meaning to the importance of every vote. Now is the time for you to ask yourself this; "did i put politics and party ahead of the Lord Jesus the CHRIST?".

A little read report posted on FreeRepublic.com, a site not know for it's dedication to Christ, reported that as many as 647,000 registered republicans did not vote for Bush. They simply stayed home. The pundits are trying to blame that on the communist leaning media in the country. They say that because the media announced that the state had gone to Gore even before the polls closed, that republicans stayed home and didn't vote for Bush. Hogwash! They stayed home out of principal. They stayed home because Gov. Bush is not Pro-Life, he isn't Pro-Second Amendment, he isn't Pro- First Amendment. He is not Pro-Christ and Christian values! That is why the majority stayed home. The same reason tens of thousands of registered republicans in Maine stayed away from voting for the most pro-abortion anti Christ, anti constitution senator in Washington, Olympia Snowe (R) Maine. They stayed home because they refused to vote for the lesser of the two evils.

What about you? Did you put party ahead of the Lord? Did you vote for Bush or Gore, by justifying your vote by referring to your choice as "the lesser of the two evils"? A quick look at my e-mail accounts over the last 48 hours tells me the answer to that question is yes in more cases than I would have believed possible.

The left wing liberals who seek to undermine this nation and it's Christian principals have joined coalitions, the homosexuals swear allegiance to the candidate that will support their sodomizing child raping ways, the pro abortionist joins, with only one thought in mind, the killing of babies in the womb, the dirt worshiping earth firsters join, not caring about the candidates pro sodomy, pro child murdering stances, focusing only on kissing the trees and protecting the dirt.

What about you? Would you be willing to support a candidate who puts Christ first? Would you support him if he also committed to being 100% Pro-Life? How about if he was committed to the constitution as it is written as well? Could you put your government handout aside and support a Pro-Christ, Pro-Life, Pro-Constitution candidate? Would you be willing to support a Constitution party candidate who met the above criteria against a democrat or republican? Even when the nightly news with petey jenning and the tabloid news of Channels six and eight. Would you be willing to stand with him even with the powerful pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, anti-Christ, anti- constitution Portland Press Herald constantly insulting him, degrading him and insulting anyone even thinking about voting for him?

Are you willing to stand up and be counted as a Christian, a patriot and or a PR-Lifer? If so go to www.Christianpatriot.com and prepare to fight to rescue our state from the sodomizers the abortionist, the gun grabbers, the tree huggers, the fascist socialist communist who run the republican and democrat parties. Let's elect school board members who will kick satan out of the schools and put the Lord back in! Let's elect selectmen who will put a Nativity scene back in the common for Christmas. Let's elect sheriffs who will arrest abortionist for murder. Let's elect state reps and senators who will pass laws that comply with the Constitution and the Word of God, not the communist manifesto and satans book of baal.

The choice is yours and the choice is simple, with your vote we can take the state back, without it we will continue to see 52%v voting to keep partial birth infanticide legal in Maine. We will continue to see homosexuals claiming rights and hanging around our states rest areas ogling little boys and girls and writing obscene things on the walls of the state tax payer funded outhouse placed there for the convenience of the traveler, not as a recruiting depot for the sodomites and lesbians of the state.

Is it not time for us to have elected public servants who will:

2Kings 12:2 And Jehoash did that which was right in the sight of the LORD all his days wherein Jehoiada the priest instructed him.

Isn't it time that we support those running for office who will listen to the Word of God rather than the word of the abortionist with a check book, or the homosexuals and lesbians for campaign donations or the gun grabbing communist with funding from communist in China, Russians and Cuba who write checks to undermine these states?

The choice is yours, ACP Or more of the same.

The Lord be with you and this State.

Could GW have used another million or so votes?


I sent this letter to Rush Limbaugh just a few moments ago, I ask you to read it and to join with us in committing to not, under any circumstances, vote for anyone who is not 100% Pro-Life. For in no case has the baby done anything worthy of death or any punishment.

Good morning Rush,

As I looked at this mornings results, I couldn't help but wonder if GW could have used another million or so votes. You see, each year, more and more Evangelical Christians take a sacred pledge not to vote for anyone who is not willing and committed to using the power of the office they seek, to end abortion. That number now exceeds one million voters.

Yesterday it was hard not to go vote for GW, but, our pledge to God Almighty is more important. W, insist that he is pro-life, yet his position allows for the murder of the baby when the mother claims the baby is the result of a rape, no charges need be filed, only the claim made. When the baby is the result of incest, yet again no charges need be filed, only the claim of a woman who has decided to kill her baby trapped in her womb. Or even when a woman goes to a butcher in a planned parenthood abortion mill with a md after his or her name and that sadistic baal worshiping baby sacrificing butcher claims as an md or do that her life may be endangered by having the baby.

GW's positions kept me and many others from voting for him and that million or so votes may very well have cost him the election. You see Rush, all abortions take the life of a baby in the womb and anyone who condones the murder of a little one trapped within his or her mothers womb for any reason what so ever, is evil in our minds and we have refused to vote for evil even when it is the lesser of the two evils, for even the lesser is still evil.

I doubt very much that you will agree with anything I have said, and that is not important, what is important is that now you can relay to the next 'conservative' running how GW missed about one million votes.

The Lord Yeshua bless you and help you to use your power, that He has given you, to help end the slaughter of the baby in the womb,

Always remember this: Matthew 1:18-25
18 ¶ Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as His mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

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. 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. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call His name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins.

22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, BEHOLD, A VIRGIN SHALL BE WITH CHILD, AND SHALL BRING FORTH A SON, AND THEY SHALL CALL HIS NAME EMMANUEL, WHICH BEING INTERPRETED IS, GOD WITH US. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called His name JESUS.
(KJV)

and

Luke 1:26-35
26 ¶ And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. 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. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a Son, and shalt call His name JESUS. 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: And He shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of His kingdom there shall be no end.

34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that Holy Thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

Do you think for even one moment that God Almighty would ever in a million years condone even for a moment the murder of what He once was? A baby in the womb. You want to turn this country around? Stop voting for the lesser of the two evils, stop voting for anyone who can in any way accept the murder of the baby in the womb, trust in the Lord God above, not politicians and political parties, for it is He whom Mary carried in her womb that went up on the tree for you, not Bush, not Gore, not Limbaugh or any of the talking heads. Jesus died for your sins, stop letting the above talk you in to supporting ones who would have sent Mary to a planned parenthood abortion mill!

The Lord Yeshua have mercy on His people America, may He give us another chance, but if He doesn't let us all remember and confess that we as a nation that has killed over 100 million babies trapped in the wombs of their mothers, deserve and have earned His Holy and Righteous wrath!

Amen.

Election day in the USA...


Well, today is the day that we who live in the USA get to vote. So what could be more appropriate than to look at Paul's writings to the Romans on a day such as this.

Romans 2:10-16
10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: For there is no respect of persons with God. For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;

13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)

16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.

As you walk in to vote today, think about what Paul is telling the Romans here, he is telling them that it is not just hearing for the sake of hearing that saves a man, but by that man taking those words that he has heard to heart and acting according to them. If you have only listened to the candidates, but don't really know where they stand, why are you voting for them? I heard that Gore was at a church Sunday doing a healing service, the photo showed him with his arms stretched to heaven, a causal observer might be tempted to think that Gore takes the Lord seriously, but any who study, even causally, the real Al Gore know that by his deeds, he has shown himself to be a satan worshiper willing to appease his god with the blood of the innocent baby in the womb, without hesitation and with not controlling authority or sympathy.

As a Christian it is your duty to vote, it is your responsibility to use your vote as a witness to the Lord Jesus. As a Christian your loyalty should be to the Lord, not a political party. If the candidate you are voting for is anything other than 100% pro-Life, that candidate is not Pro-Christ! For the Lord Jesus, the Messiah, God who walked the Earth as man, was a baby in the womb. There is not one bit of Scripture that even hints at the idea that the Lord would condone or forgive the taking of the life of a baby trapped in the womb. God placed that baby in his or her mothers womb for that babies safety and care, not as a trap for him or her to be slaughtered.

In Maine there are two running for the US Congress that are Pro-Life, they are both running proudly as Pro-Lifers against two of the most pro-abortion democrats in the country. These two are Libertarian Fred Staples in the First congressional district running as a Libertarian and Dick Campbell running as a Republican in the Second congressional district. May God be with both of these fine gentlemen!

The Lord be with you as you pull that ballot today.
Amen.

Fasting and Prayer for a clean America.


Tomorrow, Tuesday November 7th, 2000, we in the USA, will go to the polls to elect the next president of these United States. What we need is a man who will epitomize that one in Psalm 101, a man who will seek the Lord and through prayer and fasting will do what is right in His sight. How can we help get a man like that? How can we, the little Christians on the corner, help to convince God to give us a man who will strive to do what is right in His sight? How can we drive the demons out of our government and replace them with the Holy Spirit and men of God?

We need look no further than Scripture to find our answer.

Mark 9:14-29 how to cleanse a man or a nation from demonic possession.
14 ¶ And when Jesus came to His disciples, He saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning them. And straightway all the people, when they beheld Him, were greatly amazed, and running to Him saluted Him. And Jesus asked the scribes, What question ye with them?

17 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto Thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit; and wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to Thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not.

19 He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I suffer you? Bring him unto Me.

20 And they brought him unto Him: and when Jesus saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming. And Jesus asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child. And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.

23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help Thou mine unbelief. When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him. And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead. But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.

28 And when Jesus was come into the house, His disciples asked Him privately, Why could not we cast him out? And He said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.

Think of the unsaved masses of this country, the ones who know something is wrong, the Rush Limbaugh's, the Catholics, Orthodox Jews, liberal small c christians, the ones who know that Clinton committed treason, rape and most likely murder. Think of them as the father of the boy possessed. Think of the boy possessed as these United States of America, a country possessed with a government ripe with demons and heathen worship. Think of yourselves, the Born Again Christian community, the church of Laodicea as just what you are, the Body of Christ.

Now as the Body of Christ, how are you to cleanse this nation of the demons within it? How are you to insure that the Lord gives us a fresh new start? That the Lord gives us a government ruled by men who will seek His face, who will do that which is right in the sight of the Lord? Do as the Lord has instructed, pray and fast.
28 And when Jesus was come into the house, His disciples asked Him privately, Why could not we cast him out? And He said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.

May the Lord bless you and may you find the strength, courage and faith to fast and pray for one little day.
Amen.
