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 pools 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.

Italians and Jews part three...


So far we have seen the way the Jews and Italians have worked hand in hand to remove the Messiah from the scene. To this point in time, they have been together as they arrested the Lord. First the Jews and then the Italians have beaten Him. And we have seen that the Jews knew exactly who He is. Now let us continue:

Matthew 27:
verses 1&2
1. When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put Him to death: And when they had bound Him, they led Him away, and delivered Him to Pontius Pilate the governor. Jesus has been found guilty of being God by the Jews, and they have chosen to kill Him rather than surrender their earthly power to Him, now they need an executioner. As you will see, God is not going to let them say "Oops, we made a mistake." God is going to make them reassert their desire and demand that they kill Him over and over again, so there can be no mistake that both the jews and their Italian lackeys in this case prove to both themselves, God and the world that they are determined to kill the Christ.

Verses 11-54
11. ¶ And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked Him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest. Pilate ask "Are you the Christ? Jesus says "YES!".

12. And when Jesus was accused of the chief priests and elders, He answered nothing. Then said Pilate unto Him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee? And Jesus answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marvelled greatly. Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would. And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas. Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ? Pilate has picked the worst prisoner he has, one charged with treason, murder, sedation .Who made his living preying on the poor and travelers as a bandit, one whom he felt sure the people would never let him turn loose on their society again. Pilate was trying to either goad the Jews or get them to allow him to turn the lord loose. But...

18. For Pilate knew that for envy they had delivered Jesus.

19. When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of Him. But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus. The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas. Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let Him be crucified.

23. And the governor said, Why, what evil hath He done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let Him be crucified. When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it. Now watch what the Jews say to this.

25. Then answered all the people, and said, "His blood be on us, and on our children". The Jews have just called down the worst curse in history upon themselves and their children. But what about the Italians? Will there be no curse upon them and their children? Wait and see...

26. ¶ Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered Him to be crucified. Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto Him the whole band of soldiers. And they stripped Him, and put on Him a scarlet robe. And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon His head, and a reed in His right hand: and they bowed the knee before Him, and mocked Him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews! 0 And they spit upon Him, and took the reed, and smote Him on the head. I want you to read what they did a few times, and then give it some very serious thought. But I want to tell you a bit about the scourging part so that you don't just think it was a simple whipping. The man doing the scourging was a professional torturer, he would use a whip with long throngs of leather attached, at the ends where tied pieces of lead, glass, copper and sharpened bits of other things, the person to be scourged was stripped and bent over a tree trunk that stood about three feet off the ground, it had loops of steel attached to the front and the back. These were used to tie the victim's hands and feet. Then the scourger stood back about six feet, spread his legs and proceeded to use all of his force to whip the man, starting at the top of his shoulders and working down and then back up again. Many went crazy from the pain. When a man passed out he was doused with cold salt water to revive him and the scourging continued. Many died from being scourged and never made it to the cross. It was that bad. And this they did to the Lord, the Italians did this on their own, in order to appease the Jews, for fear that the Jews might riot. Remember back in verses 23 and 24, "When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it. "

31. And after that they had mocked Him, they took the robe off from Him, and put His own raiment on Him, and led Him away to crucify Him. And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear His cross. They beat the Lord so severely that He could not carry His own cross. Think about it, all through the Old Testament God tells us that a sacrifice must be perfect, without even a hair out of place, the best and the strongest were to be offered up to the Lord. Jesus was undoubtably the most perfect human to ever walk the earth, He was not only perfect looking, He was in perfect physical condition, He had to be, for he was to be the perfect sacrifice for our sins. Yet they beat Him so badly that He could not carry His own cross. They beat Him worse than they have ever beat anyone before. They could have stopped and time they wanted to, but they choose to continue, they choose of their own free will to beat the Lord like this. But keep in mind, the curse the Jews brought down upon themselves and their children did not include the Italians, only the Jews. Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

33. ¶ And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull, they gave Him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when He had tasted thereof, He would not drink. And they crucified Him,

and parted His garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots. And sitting down they watched Him there;

37. And set up over His head His accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS. Now the Italians have confessed that Jesus is the Christ as well, now they to have admitted that they knew whom it was that they were torturing and killing.

38. Then were there two thieves crucified with Him, one on the right hand, and another on the left. And they that passed by reviled Him, wagging their heads, saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross. Likewise also the chief priests mocking Him, with the scribes and elders, said, He saved others; Himself He cannot save. If He be the King of Israel, let Him now come down from the cross, and we will believe Him. He trusted in God; let Him deliver Him now, if He will have Him: for He said, I am the Son of God.

44. The thieves also, which were crucified with Him, cast the same in His teeth.

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. Wow! Finally someone has started to realize who He is and at least tries to relieve a bit of His suffering. But the majority are there just for the show, hoping to see just one more miracle.

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

54. Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God. The centurion and his men now realize what they have done.

Jesus was crucified around 30 AD, He was 33 years old. Never again would things be the same, history tells us from that time forward, Roman soldiers raped at will and with total immunity from any and all prosecution Jewish girls, they took as slaves, as concubines and sometimes as wives. From that time forward just about every Roman soldier in all of Israel had children by Jewish girls.

Remember the curse? Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

And that is why Italians and Jews are so close, it is because they put their blood together in conspiracy to kill the Lord and afterwards rejoiced together after His death. But has God given both the Jew and the Italian a way to be forgiven? YES!

The same blood that they caused to be shed, they can be forgiven by. We know that by reading Acts the tenth chapter.

May the Lord bless you all.
Amen.

Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday November 1st, 2nd, & 3rd 2000 AD

Italians and Jews part two...


What we are doing is studying the Word of God to find why it is that Italians and Jews are naturally such close friends, almost like brothers.

We have seen that when Judas the traitor came to turn the Lord over to the police, he took both local police from the temple and federal police of the occupying forces of the Romans - the Italian band of cohorts, lead by a centurion.

After this arrest, Jesus was brought for the first of His many trials that day, let us pick it up there...

Matthew 26: 57, 59-68
57 ¶ And they that had laid hold on Jesus led Him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled. The Italian band and the Jewish security forces took the Lord prisoner and brought Him to the Jewish High priest and his fellow conspirators to try the Lord.

59 Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put Him to death; But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses, and said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days. And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?

63 But Jesus held His peace. And the high priest answered and said unto Him, I adjure thee by the living God, that Thou tell us whether Thou be the Christ, the Son of God. The high priest said, I adjure Thee by Thee tell us who You are. Like they didn't know.

64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

65 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy. What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death. Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands. Now follow this carefully, for it is most important in understanding the relationship between the Jews and Italians. Notice that the council of Jews here sentences Jesus to death under their laws for blasphemy, so they beat Him, spit on Him, and slapped Him around. Now read the next verse very very carefully.

68 Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote Thee? This is the high priest talking, a supposedly devout Jew who broke no Jewish laws, yet, under Jewish law, a Jew cannot even say the word God, nor write it, but must instead write G-d. So, no chief priest, member of the Sanhedrin or even orthodox Jew would have ever blatantly or cynically accuse a man of being the Christ, the messiah, God, unless they were absolutely sure that man was in fact God, the Messiah, Christ, for Christ is the English translation of the word Christo, which is the Greek translation of the word Messiah which in the Hebrew is God. For the Jews do believe in the Trinity, they know for a fact from the Torah, the first five books of the Bible that God is three in One.
Genesis 1:26-28
26 ¶ And God said, Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. See the Our and Us? Ask a Jew what that means and they will tell you it means the Father, the Holy Spirit and the Messiah, the Son of the Living God. Ask if that is three separate and they will tell you it is three separate, but one God. Exactly what we teach as the Trinity, God The Father, God the Son, God the holy Spirit.
27 So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Notice here the singular use of God, "So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him;"

The point here is that this council of Jews, now they Had Jesus and they knew that Jesus is the Messiah, they knew that who that had before them was the Son of God, yet they were determined to kill Him.

Now up until this time, the only part the Italians have had is in the arrest of the Lord, but watch as we go back to Matthew, let us go to Matthew 27: verses 1&2

1 ¶ When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put Him to death: And when they had bound Him, they led Him away, and delivered Him to Pontius Pilate the governor. After beating, slapping, and spitting on Him most of the night, the Jews were now taking the Lord to the Italian authorities, why? Why take Him to the Italian governor, after all, the Jews had already condemned him to death, what more could the Italian overseers do? Now to find the answer to this, we will jump ahead to John 19.

John 19:1-7
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. 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 Him, they cried out, saying, Crucify Him, crucify Him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye Him, and crucify Him: for I find no fault in Him.

7 The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because He made Himself the Son of God. You see, under Roman law, none but the Romans could put someone to death. The Jews could not openly Kill Jesus on their own, oh they could have Him killed in private and the Romans would have turned their backs, but Roman law forbad any but the Romans from openly crucifying and killing anyone. The Jews needed their Italian overseers to help them murder the Lord.

This relationship of dependency on the Romans by the Jews is very important, it isn't enough for the Italians just to carry out the murder of the Lord, they must be knowing partners in His murder in order to understand this unholy kinship of Italians and Jews.

The Italians and the Jews have to be so close in this satan lead and orchestrated murder of the Lord that they are indistinguishable in their guilt.

The Lord Jesus be with you all this day. May he bless you and forgive you, may he shower His grace down upon you and yours. May He protect you from evil, the evil one, and those who serve the evil one knowingly and unknowingly. May He give unto you and yours this day His daily Bread, not just the bread for your belly, but the true bread of life, His Holy Word.

Amen.

Italians and Jews part one...


A while back, I was asked by an attorney, why I thought it was that Italians and Jews were always such close friends. Why it was that Italians and Jews seemed to just naturally drift towards one another. As soon as he finished asking, I knew that what he was asking was indeed a valid question, for being Italian, I knew from personal experience that yes indeed, Italians do seem to have an ingrained kindred for the Jew. We do seem to enjoy their company and tend to become close friends with them. But, why. Why is it that we as Italians tend to think of the Jews as more than friends, more like little brothers and sisters. We tend to think of the Jew as one that needs more than just our friendship, we tend to think of them as ones who need our love and protection as well. We tend to think of ourselves as the ones the Jews need to do the difficult, dangerous, dirty task that they for one reason or another are either unable or unwilling to do on their own.

But why?

Well as always one need go no further than the Word of God, the Holy Scriptures to find the answer and that is what we will start doing today, just don't jump to conclusions. By the end of the week, we will be into secular history that will include rape as prat of history, this part may be best read with children, not with the kids reading it themselves. As always, I will in no way be gross or overly descriptive, it is just that kids may need additional history to understand what was happening at that time.

Ok. Let's get into why Jews and Italians are by nature, more than friends.

Let us start with Matthew 26: 36-47
36 ¶ Then cometh Jesus with the twelve unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder. And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy. Then saith He unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with Me.

39 And Jesus went a little further, and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, O My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from Me: nevertheless not as I will, but as Thou wilt. And He cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with Me one hour? Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done. And He came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy. And He left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.

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. Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray Me.

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.

In Mark, chapter 14 it is written;
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.

In Luke 22:47 it again recorded;
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.

Who was this great multitude that had ganged together to arrest the Lord Jesus, the CHRIST?

For the answer to that question, let us look at the Gospel of John, chapter 18 verses 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, He and His disciples. And Judas also, which betrayed Him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with His disciples. Notice, Judas the traitor was not with the Lord, but he knew where to find Jesus.

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. A band is also interpreted a cohort. A cohort is a group of about 100 Roman soldiers, lead by a centurion. What Judas the traitor has is 100 Italian soldiers, a security detail from the Jews led by a captain and members of the Sanhedrin, probably as high leveled as Saul that later became Paul.

4 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 Jesus 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 17:12, read John 17:6-12.

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? It is important to note that Jesus never told Peter to get rid of his sword, only to put it back in it's holster.

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. Who lead Jesus away? A band of Italian soldiers and a detachment of Jewish security officers. And to who did they drag Him? the leaders of the Jews.

The Lord Jesus, Yeshua Messiah be with you all, may He help you to understand that He can and will forgive you your sins, just as He has forgive this errant Italian descendant of the Roman cohort.
Amen.

Yet, we make it so difficult.


One day while speaking to those the Lord Jesus had appointed apostles, Philip, one of the twelve, asked the Lord to show them the Father.

John 14: 8&9
8 Philip saith unto Him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known Me, Philip?
Jesus went on trying to get Philip to understand that He and the Father are one, He went on into chapter 15 where in the first 10 verses we see something we should all understand today. You see all who are Born Again will go to heaven, no way around that. But, how many crowns will you have? What will you be in heaven, a horse fly in the Lords stables or a crowned prince? How well you abide in the Lord's Word is what determines that. Don't get me wrong, it is a million times better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord than the CEO of hell.

John 15: 1-10
1 ¶ I am the True Vine, and My Father is the Husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit He taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, He purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
Jesus is the vine, the vine is the main part of the tree. It is the Vine that has the roots, not the branches. You and I who are Born Again, are the branches. If you produce through your work and or your witness, you are a productive branch and the Father in heaven prunes you. Pruning is what those who tend things like apple trees and grape vines do to make the plant more productive. Pruning adds strength so that more fruit can be grown not putting all the energy into the branches growing long and spindly.

3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. 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. I am the Vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in Me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without Me ye can do nothing.
You are clean, means you are Born again. Jesus is not talking about non believers here, remember He is talking to His Apostles. If we abide in the Lord and do His will and His commands, HE abides in us as well, for we can do nothing without Him. Oh we can paint a house or pull a tooth, we can take out ulcers and scrub floors, fix cars and find missing treasures, but we can not lead anyone to eternal salvation without the Lord's help and His being in and with us. When we do what the Lord has told us to do, we produce much fruit, many come to know and accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour. You see, when we preach the Word, as it is written, not as we would like it to be, we see souls saved. Unfortunately, we all have a tendency to want to do it on our own, to embellish the Lord's Words and Deeds. Some even try to tell others what Jesus and the Father really meant to say. But it is only through preaching the unadulterated Word of God that souls are brought to repentance and to salvation.

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.
Now Jesus is not saying that if the branch, a Born Again Christian, is not fruitful he will be cast into hell. That is not what He is saying. He is saying that those branches that are unfruitful, the closet Christians, those who hide their Christianity in a closet, are not pruned, they are simply cut off. Like a vine dresser or apple farmer would cut off non producing branches and cast them into a fire to get rid of them. Some farmers just put them in a heap and give chipmunks a home. If you are an unfruitful branch, you're not going to hell, it is just that you will not be earning very many crowns to place at the Lord's feet.

7 If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
If you are doing the Lord's work, that which He has called you to do, what you ask will be done. Does that mean if you ask for a new Caddy, you'll get it? Let me let you in on a little secret, if you are doing the Lord's work, it is not a caddy you'll be asking for. What you will be asking for is salvation for others, for those whom you are witnessing to and preaching His Word to. Show me a real preacher and I'll show you a guy with worn out knees and a constant tear in his eye. A man who in all probability doesn't even know if he's wearing a tie, never mind what color it is.

8 Herein is My Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be My disciples.
When you do the work Jesus has appointed you to do, not only are you doing His work you are glorifying God Almighty at the same time. And that my brothers and sisters is what we were created to do.

9 ¶ As the Father hath loved Me, so have I loved you: continue ye in My love. If ye keep My commandments, ye shall abide in My love; even as I have kept My Father's commandments, and abide in His love.
Jesus is one with the Father because He does the will of the Father, He does that which the Father sent Him to do, even when that something was to go up on the cross. Want to be one with the Lord and therefore one with the Father? Do that which the Lord has commanded you to do. You don't have to go up on a cross, you need to:

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.
Got it? Love one another, not the heathen world, but one another as Born Again Believers, Born Again Christians. It is not a request the Lord has made here, it is a command.

What else?

Mark 16:15
And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Again not a suggestion, but an order, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature!

Matthew 28:19
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

So, what are we to do? Love one another, help each other through hard times, give each other support and friendship and love and food and clothing and shelter and all those other things that you know you should do for one you love, for when you love a fellow believer, you are loving the temple of the Holy Spirt and loving the Holy Ghost, for does not the Holy Spirit abide within each and every Born Again Christian.

Love your fellow Born Again Christian to the point where you would lay down your life for him or her for are you not going to spend all eternity with him or her?

But what about the heathen, the unsaved, what are you to do with them? Preach to them, witness to them, help them find the Lord. That is the best thing you can do for them, for in doing that, you are giving them the information necessary to find salvation in Jesus and save themselves from and eternity in hell.

Want peace in the middle east, the streets of Americas cities, the squares and house churches in the Sudan and China? Pray for their salvation, pray that they may all be Born Again.

The Lord Jesus be with you all, may God bless and be with you all, keeping you and yours close to Him and helping you to be a productive vine, for it is better to be a Lazarus than a rich man.
Amen.

Evil is evil is evil...


Oh how tired I'm getting of hearing people who claim to belong to the Christ, telling me that they are voting for a pro abortionist named Bush. Excuses coming out of my ears, I've heard so many.

Look, you can not belong to the God of Life, Jesus the Christ and at the same time be voting for a man who accepts and condones the murder of the baby in the womb and will use the power of his office to protect them from prosecution that murder those babies. You can not serve the God of Creation, Jesus the Christ and at the same time vote for a man who will not use every bit of the power of the office of the president to end this horrendous slaughter of innocent trapped young lives. Especially since there are three true pro-Life candidates on the ballot, Pat Buchanan Reform party, Howard Phillips US Constitution Party and Charley Collins.

Read the words of the Lord and think not for even one minute that mammon is simply money, it is not, it is evil, even the lesser of two evils is evil.

Matthew 6: 19-24
19 ¶ 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.

22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

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

I am really starting to wonder what is going on in the pulpits of this country. Preachers are letting their fear of the irs get in the way of their preaching it seems. In the mean time 50 or 60 million babies are being murdered in this country every year. I'm going to ask you to join with us and others and set Sunday November aside, to be a day of church, prayer and fasting. A day to go to the Lord on bended knees and empty stomach asking Him to rescue us and the baby in the womb by giving us a leader for this nation that will be as the one described in Psalm 101.

The Lord of Life, the Lord JESUS the Christ be with you. May He help you to understand that He would never ever condone the murder of what He once was, a baby in the womb, a baby sleeping peacefully in what should be absolute security and safety. For today, the most dangerous place on earth to be is in the womb. I pray that God will bless those who stop abortions and save the lives of even one baby in the womb.
Amen

A couple of 3:16's and...


John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

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:

God so loves us that He came to earth as a man named Jesus, in order to offer us away to be forgiven for our sins, He went up on the cross and shed His blood to be the perfect atonement for us. Why? Because there could be no compromise with God. The blood of a ram or a bull or a sheep or a turtle dove just wasn't good enough, it had to be perfect blood from a perfect, spotless, sinless sacrifice and only God could be that sacrifice, so, He offered up Himself for us.

How do we know that? Scripture tells us so.
2 Timothy 3:16 we find that all of Scripture, every last work in the Bible is the Word of God.

Some would excuse theirs and others behavior by telling us that Jesus fulfilled all of the Old Testament and therefore all the stuff written in the Old Testament are moot. But what does Jesus say about that?
Matthew 5: 17 and 18 17 ¶ Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Now, think about the trials of Jesus as He was tried before Herod, Pontius Pilot, the Sanhedrian and the Jews as a whole. Did He ever compromise? Did He ever settle for the lesser of the two evils? You call yourself a Christian, how can you be if you do not follow in the footsteps of the master?

Are you going to vote for the lesser of the two evils? Are you so afraid of Al Gore that you will vote for George Bush? Even though you know that George Bush is not going to stop the murdering of the baby in the womb? You wear a bracelet that has on it WWJD? Yet, you act more like a child of this world than a son or daughter brother or sister of the Lord God Almighty.

Let's look at two more verses.

John 15:14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
Don't you just love singing "What a friend I have in Jesus". Don't you love to consider yourself His bond servant or even His friend? But remember that verse goes on and says that you are His friend if you do whatsoever He commands you. Do you think that His commandment to you is to compromise your morals, His values and vote for the lesser of the two evils? I don't and I won't. For the Lord God above, has also told us this. And you who think you can be Sunday Christians had best read this next verse very carefully.

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.

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? 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.

So, are you building your Christian life on rock or on the sand? No where in Scripture does God every compromise nor suggest that we compromise. God is the God of life, satan is the god of death. If you vote for one who is anything other than 100% pro-life, you are voting for evil. What kind of example are you to your kids when you say, "well George Bush is better than Al Gore, so I'm going to vote for him." Do you think your kids are so thick that they will not realize tomorrow or some time down the road that there were two true pro-life candidates for you to choose from, but instead you choose one of the two pro abortion candidates.

George Bush and Al Gore are pro abortion! Pat Buchanan and Howard Phillips are both 100% pro-life. Is winning so important that it is worth supporting a pro abortionist? Is keeping Gore out of office so important that you will send the son of "Read my lips, no new taxes." into the oval office? Have you so little faith and trust in God that you will vote for the lesser of the two evils? Do you not realize that voting for the lesser of the two evils still means you are voting for evil?

1Timothy 4:10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.
Want a pro-Christ, pro-life president? Turn to God and ask Him for one. Pray to the Father in heaven for a leader that is one who is like unto he in Psalm 101. But pray and do what is right, you will never get a God fearing president by voting for the lesser of the two evils.

The Lord Jesus be with you all and may He forgive our country and bless us with one who will do what is right in His sight, one who will fear and love God, not one who idolizes this world.

Amen.

It is not just John 3:16 they hate.


As you look around at the heathen culture that has taken over these United States, can you not see the way they hate chapter three verse sixteen. It isn't just John 3:16 that satan and his slaves hate, it is many of the verses that are numbered 16 and are embedded in the 3rd chapter of the varies books of the Holy Word of God. As we look at America today, we see perversion and perversion heaped upon 3:16.

But why is do you think, that satan and his slaves take such great delight in dishonoring 3:16? Wrestlers pervert it, rock groups pervert it, pornographers pervert it, drug dealers pervert it, Hollywood celebrities pervert it and make it to bear the brunt of their jokes. Even the main stream republicans and democrats in local, state and national office seem to take every opportunity to ridicule it. And liberal church of Laodicea preachers limit their preaching of John 3:16 to just the first half of the verse.

What is it about chapter 3 verse 16 that forces satan and his slaves to such outrageous and blasphemous behavior?

Now we all know John 3:16
16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Every Church of Philadelphia Christian preacher will include this verse in one of his sermons or alter calls at least once a month, why even he or she who preaches in the liberal church of Laodicea will occasionally use the first half of the verse itself, mostly to justify their sins. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son...

And there is no mistaking the fact that it is John 3:16 that satan, his minions and his ilk, his slaves, hate the most. But there are other 3:16's that they hate too and it is those that we will spend a while looking at.

Joel 3:16 The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of His people, and the strength of the children of Israel. His people? That my brothers is us, the church of Philadelphia.

Malachi 3:16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon His name. Who is "they that feared the LORD"? Us, the church of Philadelphia. How do I know? "and a book of remembrance was written before Him" that is the Book of Life.

Luke 3:16 John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire: Who is John talking about? JESUS! Who will Jesus baptize with the Holy Ghost? Why us, His bride, His church, the church of Philadelphia of course.

Acts 3:16 And His name through faith in His name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by Him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all. Read it like this and you'll see why satan and his slaves so hate Acts 3:16 And Jesus name, through faith in Jesus' name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by Jesus hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.

1 Corinthians 3:16 ¶ Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

2 Corinthians 3: 16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away. Read it like this, 16 Nevertheless when a man shall turn to the Lord, the covering of his eyes, heart and ears shall be taken away.

Ephesians 3:16 That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man;

1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

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:

1 John 3:16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because He laid down His life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. The slaves of satan, ask us to lay down our lives to save them from the embarrassment of bad political decisions and to help them achieve their greed, as does their god, satan. But Jesus laid down His life so that we who come to Him, believe on Him and dedicate our lives to Him may have eternal salvation and rule with Him.

Revelation 3:16, The Lord's own warning to the liberal churches, His warning to the main stream protestant denominations the varies Roman Catholic type churches that have added anything or taken anything away from His salvation by His deeds on the cross.. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of My mouth.

Now, let me close with just one more 3:16,
2 Thessalonians 3:16 ¶ Now the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all.

Amen.

Rush take more time off!!!


Rush Limbaugh has a daily audience of about 16 million men and women, most of these men and women are to the right of Rush, like myself, but listen to him anyhow since he is much easier to take then the out and out leftist of the ‘main stream' media. But everyone once in a while, we get a real treat and Rush takes a day off and leaves the mike to a true conservative American Christian Patriot. Praise GOD!

One day last week, I think it was Friday, October 13th, 2000. Walter Williams, a black conservative constitutionalist Christian patriot sat in for the more liberal left leaning Rush Limbaugh. Walter had many fine things to say and in just about each instance supported, reinforced and made his argument, not with rhetoric or emotionalism, but Biblical and or Constitutional truth and fact.

But what caught my attention the most was his statement that it was time for those of us who believe in Constitutional government a government based upon our Constitution as it is written and the Word of God, the Holy Bible. To separate ourselves from the hordes of socialist now over running our country, move to a couple of states, he suggest Texas and Arkansas, I would throw in Arizona and New Mexico as well. Elect like minded men to both houses and the governor's office and then secede from the union by issuing the same Declaration of Independence that our founding fathers sent to king George. Then be prepared to fight, kill and die if necessary.

I agree and so does the Word of God.

Ezra 10:11 Now therefore make confession unto the LORD God of your fathers, and do his pleasure: and separate yourselves from the people of the land, and from the strange wives.

2Cointhains 6:14- 18
14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Dr. Williams is right, think about the everyday influences you and your family are swamped with each day. Take a walk, a drive or just look out the window and your eyes, ears, mind and Soul are polluted with scanty attire, filthy speech and morally corrupt behavior. All of which has been deemed legal and acceptable by the Supreme Court of these once God fearing United States. The Republican candidate for president shuns the Christian coalition while at the same time embracing homosexuals. All that was once dear and revered in these United states is now considered evil, all that was once shunned and considered sick and perverted is now embraced by these same states and both ‘major' parties.

A man convicted in a court of law for perjury is allowed by the Senate to stay in office as president, they claim that perjury is not serious enough to remove the liar from office. Am I being harsh in calling clinton a liar? No! Why? Because he has been found guilty by a judge for just that, lying under oath, perjury. Yet the likes of left wing liberal pro abortion Republican Senators Olympia Snowe and her submissive junior, Susan Collins both of Maine, the stae that by a vote of 52% to 47% approved both the sue of and the funding of ninth month partial birth abortions.

I'm not going to articulate the sins of this nation, but I am going to suggest that Dr. Williams is right. I am going to suggest that we think long and hard about what Dr. Williams said and the Scripture as written by Ezra and Paul. For what do we have in common with those who do the killings of the babies in the womb? What do we have in common with those who condone it either openly or by their silence? What do we have in common with the sodomites? Do we have anything in common with those who consider homosexual action an acceptable alternative life style? What do we have in common with those who wish to disarm us? What do we have in common with the use of our tax money, taken under the threat of imprisonment or worse, to fund illegitimate behavior, the giving away of drugs, the promotion of homosexuality, the publication of lies about the transmission of the fatal disease of aids? Should we not cut ourselves off from them?

Perhaps, just perhaps, God arranged the appearance of Dr. Williams on the Rush Limbaugh show last Friday, perhaps He wants us to create within the heathen borders of the USA, one nation under God, one Christian nation based upon the true writings of the US Constitution and the Words of the Lord Jesus the Christ. A Christian nation within a nation of baal worshiping infant in the womb sacrificing pagans.

Let us pray and think, let us go to the Father on our knees in the name of the Son and with the power of the Holy Spirit. Let us ask God Almighty if that is what He wants us to do, for if it is His will, clinton, his minions and his ilk, the one he serves and his buddies in the armies of the world can not stop us. For if it is His will, He will be with us and fight for us as He did for Israel in Joshua chapters ten and eleven.

Oh Father in heaven above hear our prayer, forgive us Lord for the things we have said, done, thought and dreamt that have offended Thee Lord God Creator. Help us Lord to know what it is that you would have us do. Is it your will that we take for ourselves a land away from the heathen? Is it Your will that we separate ourselves from the evils that have embraced this nation? Talk to each of us Lord, lead us to do Thy Will, help us to understand Thy wants, wishes, commands and precepts Lord. Be with us and bless us as we seek Thy Face and Thy wisdom. In the sacred name of Yeshua the Messiah we pray.
Amen.

Gotta make tents!


During the summer, we ran into some very difficult financial times. As winter approaches it becomes more and more important as each day of fall ends bringing the Maine winter closer and closer. This has resulted in my needing to study Paul's teachings for an answer. Paul's answer is not to turn to the banks, nor to turn to the government(s). Paul's teaching is to turn to yourself to get out there and make tents.

Acts 18: 1-3
1 ¶ After these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth; And found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; (because that Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome:) and came unto them. And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers.

Do you see towards the end where it says "And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers." Do you see the word wrought. That means worked. You see not only stayed with Aquila and his wife Priscilla, he worked for his keep. He worked right along beside them making tents. No where does God's word tell us, wether we are preachers, single moms or anyone else to look to anyone other than our selves fro our own keep.

As Paul would not take money from the church to do away with his financial disadvantages, nor should we today. If one is capable of working than one should. And that is why the thoughts have been ever few days instead of every day. Why the sermons have been ever two or three weeks instead of every week. Between hospital visits and other work needed to serve the Lord, along with the need to go and earn money, I have simply had to cut back somewhere and somewhere has had to be the internet church.

I apologize to all who have been disappointed, but if the Lord wanted it any other way, He would have arranged for it to be another way. Obviously He wants me out there knocking on doors selling inverters at this point in time, why? I don't know, but once you have given your life to the Lord, you can assume that what ever happens, happens because He needed it to happen. It could be to make you stronger, to test you, to sharpen you, or any number of other reasons. But if you know that you are His, and if in your prayers you constantly remind Him that you have used your free will to give yourself to Him completely, than you can rest assured that what ever happens happens for Him.

So, for a while, the thoughts will be every few days and the sermons every few weeks. I will still check the email on a daily basis, for I have two driving hours a day in which I can use for prayer. And I get to drive with my favorite prayer partner, my wife Cecily.

May the Lord bless you all, amen.

Wednesday and Thursday, October 11th and 12th, 2000 AD

Buchanan or Philips? Which shall it be?


Buchanan or Philips? Which shall it be? As we approach the time set to go and cast our ballots in an effort to alter our government and return it from it's pat h of satan service to one of God the Creator service, who shall it be? Who shall we mark our ballots for? Who is that we shall cast our vote for? Will it be Pat Buchanan or Howard Philips? We know it can not be Gore, Bush, Nader or Haglin, for they all spit in God's face when it comes to the gift the Lord has given us. For they all support the horrendous practice of offering up the blood of the baby in the womb to their god satan. Oh yes I am aware that both Bush and Gore profess to be Born Again Christians, and I am in no way judging them, for that is the province of God Himself and no other. But, no one who is of Christ could in any way support the murder of those little innocent ones trapped in the supposed safety of their mothers wombs. No one who supports offering up the blood of a bay in the womb can be serving any other than satan. For there is no way that Jesus, the God of Life, the God of Light could in any way shape of form condone in any way or fashion the torturing and murdering of the baby in the womb. For those who call themselfs Christians and do not deplore the murdering of the baby in the womb, i say to you, you need to get right with the Lord and you need to do it now. For you are not His if you would kill what He once was, a baby in the womb.

What should we be looking for in our next president? What characteristics should we be asking God to give us in the man whom He chooses to anoint as our next president?

Let me suggest:

How about one who will be dedicated to doing the Lords work, one who so loves the Lord that he fills the White house and halls of government with gospel music, the singing of Psalms and Hymns. One who as he goes about his daily work would sing of God's wonderful mercy on this country by giving us another chance. One who can honestly say: "I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I sing".

How about praying for a man who will wait upon the Lord to make decisions. Not one to start a war to get his name of the front pages, nor one who lies and pays lips service once a week through phot ops to the Lord, but one who will stay in prayer as he waits the Lord's instructions to carry out for the day. One who will wait upon the Lord for His will to be done, one who will fill the white house and halls of government with Born Again Believers, one who will be able to look to heaven and say with all honesty, for it is not good to lie to the Lord; " I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart".

One who will declare war on pornography, hard and soft core. One who will use the power of his office to appoint men to the FCC that will shut down the horrors coming out of Hollywood. One who understands that pornography, the corruption of our history, the acceptance of homosexuality and the sins of the flesh are not in the best interest of the country and will say that they will not be any where that he is, therefore they will not be in the USA, nor in any country where he travels or we send troops or money. How about a man who will appoint an attorney general that will look into every crime past administrations have been accused of. One who will impeach Supreme Court Justices and other federal judges that have used their supposed authority to undermine our Christian God given inalienable rights. And replace them with men of integrity, men who take their oath of office to support and defend the constitution of the United States seriously and honestly. One who can look to heaven and say: "I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me."

A man that will appoint not eh proud and power hungry to office, but those whom are looking to serve as public servants, men who would be willing to do the job for the pay without the limelight. Men of integrity not men of greed. Men of wisdom, not men who are boastful of their smarts. Men who are Born Again and fear the Living God with all of their heart and all of their being, men who wish to please the Saviour in all that they say and do. A man who can look to God and say with honesty and diligence, "A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person."

How about asking God to give us a president that will look over his appointees shoulder, always reminding them that it is God and God's people they serve, a man who when he finds even the beginning of greed, lies, deception or self serving in an government employees attitude or service will fire and persecute him. A man who can look to the Lord at night and tell Him that he is dedicated to serving Him and protecting His people. A man who says nightly to the Lord in prayer; "Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer."

Can we agree to pray that additionally we will ask the Lord for a man who will continually look for honest God fearing men to reward, a man who rewards those who serve the Lord. A man who by his very actions we know tells us and the Lord; "Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me."

A man that starts right out by charges all those who lied and protected the liar in the current administration. A man determined to once again make perjury a serious crime punishable by years in prison at the minimum. A man who makes it very clear to all that telling lies will not be tolerated. Not to pursue a political motive, not to be able to teach a favorite theory or life style in school nor on the air waves or over the silver screen to promote a non truth. A man who understand that a nation can only be built upon truth, not lies. A man who commits to the Lord every night these words; "He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight."

And finally a man who will return this nation to one of Christian fellowship by removing from our shores those who object to or practice religions contrary to that taught in the Word of God, the Holy Bible. A man who will hunt down the witches, the pagans, those who sacrifice babies, the Muslims and Hindus, all those who serve a God other than the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. A man who, looks to God nightly and is dedicated to these words that he prays nightly; "I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD." For the United States of America was founded by Christian men as a Christian nation, not a melting pot, not a religious free zone. As Israel is a Jewish nation so is the US a Christian nation. As Israel needs a strong Jew to run their nation so does the USA need a strong Christian to run her.

Will it be Pat Buchanan or Howard Philips?

May the Lord God hear our prayer, may He give to us he whom He chooses and may that one be one of the two candidates who would protect the baby in the womb and restore Christ to our schools and public places.

Amen.

Oh, for those who are wondering, it is Psalm 101, a Psalm of David. Would it not be wonderful to have clinton replaced with David.

Esther part four...or,

Haman, stand still.


To refresh your memory of Esther chapters 1-6, click here.
Esther part four...

Haman, stand still.

As Israel stands at war with it's Arab neighbors, it would be time for Israel to once again rent their clothes, dress in sack cloth, sit in ashes and wail to the Lord. It is time for Israel to look up to heaven and ask the Lord's forgiveness. It is time for Israel to awaken and see that Jesus is the Christ, for they are once again in a terrible position. But they won't. For if one work in the Bible is true then all of it is true and in truth, Israel's heart stays hard and cold as a nation till the very end.

But, we as Born Again Believers can pray for the peace of Jerusalem, we can pray and ask the Lord to spare the Jews, we can pray and individuals Jews in Israel and around the world can have their eyes opened and once Saved, they can join our cry to the Lord for the sake of His holy land.

For as we see in Psalm 122; we are to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Now let us get back to Esther and see how the Lord thy God does come to the aid of them that love Him and call on His name.

Chapter seven

1 ¶ So the king and Haman came to banquet with Esther the queen. And the king said again unto Esther on the second day at the banquet of wine, What is thy petition, queen Esther? and it shall be granted thee: and what is thy request? and it shall be performed, even to the half of the kingdom.
Can't you just see the condescending smirk on Haman's face? As he prepares to shake his head in agreement with this petty request of the Queen's. But.

3 Then Esther the queen answered and said, If I have found favour in thy sight, O king, and if it please the king, let my life be given me at my petition, and my people at my request: For we are sold, I and my people, to be destroyed, to be slain, and to perish. But if we had been sold for bondmen and bondwomen, I had held my tongue, although the enemy could not countervail the king's damage.
Notice the word's of the queen, if we, my people and I had only been sold as slaves, I would not bother the king, but we are to be destroyed, each and every one of us, including me, your queen.

5 Then the king Ahasuerus answered and said unto Esther the queen, Who is he, and where is he, that durst presume in his heart to do so? And Esther said, The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman. Then Haman was afraid before the king and the queen.
Remember that smirk on Haman's face? Well, it's gone! God is working and satan's little satrap is about to take it on the chin. Or better yet around the neck. And he is about to find out that hell is very real and for all eternity.

7 ¶ And the king arising from the banquet of wine in his wrath went into the palace garden: and Haman stood up to make request for his life to Esther the queen; for he saw that there was evil determined against him by the king. Then the king returned out of the palace garden into the place of the banquet of wine; and Haman was fallen upon the bed whereon Esther was. Then said the king, Will he force the queen also before me in the house? As the word went out of the king's mouth, they covered Haman's face. And Harbonah, one of the chamberlains, said before the king, Behold also, the gallows fifty cubits high, which Haman had made for Mordecai, who had spoken good for the king, standeth in the house of Haman. Then the king said, Hang him thereon. So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king's wrath pacified.
Isn't God great? Talk about poetic justice, Haman gets hung on the very gallows that he built to hang Mordecai. Have you noticed the way the Lord has worked very slowly but very surely to save His people? Have you noticed that work did not start till His people got on their knees and prayed? No difference today. If we want God's help, we need to get on our knees and ask for it. Now watch what happens when God's people pray for his help, not just the rescue, but the revival and countless numbers coming to know the Lord as well. Let us continue.

Chapter eight:

1 ¶ On that day did the king Ahasuerus give the house of Haman the Jews' enemy unto Esther the queen. And Mordecai came before the king; for Esther had told what he was unto her. And the king took off his ring, which he had taken from Haman, and gave it unto Mordecai. And Esther set Mordecai over the house of Haman. And Esther spake yet again before the king, and fell down at his feet, and besought him with tears to put away the mischief of Haman the Agagite, and his device that he had devised against the Jews. Then the king held out the golden sceptre toward Esther. So Esther arose, and stood before the king, and said, If it please the king, and if I have found favour in his sight, and the thing seem right before the king, and I be pleasing in his eyes, let it be written to reverse the letters devised by Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, which he wrote to destroy the Jews which are in all the king's provinces: For how can I endure to see the evil that shall come unto my people? or how can I endure to see the destruction of my kindred?

7 Then the king Ahasuerus said unto Esther the queen and to Mordecai the Jew, Behold, I have given Esther the house of Haman, and him they have hanged upon the gallows, because he laid his hand upon the Jews. Write ye also for the Jews, as it liketh you, in the king's name, and seal it with the king's ring: for the writing which is written in the king's name, and sealed with the king's ring, may no man reverse.
As God had hardened the heart of Pharaoh, He has softened the heart of Ahasuerus. Praise GOD!

9 Then were the king's scribes called at that time in the third month, that is, the month Sivan, on the three and twentieth day thereof; and it was written according to all that Mordecai commanded unto the Jews, and to the lieutenants, and the deputies and rulers of the provinces which are from India unto Ethiopia, an hundred twenty and seven provinces, unto every province according to the writing thereof, and unto every people after their language, and to the Jews according to their writing, and according to their language. And he wrote in the king Ahasuerus' name, and sealed it with the king's ring, and sent letters by posts on horseback, and riders on mules, camels, and young dromedaries: Wherein the king granted the Jews which were in every city to gather themselves together, and to stand for their life, to destroy, to slay, and to cause to perish, all the power of the people and province that would assault them, both little ones and women, and to take the spoil of them for a prey. Upon one day in all the provinces of king Ahasuerus, namely, upon the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month Adar.
The king has now given the Jews his permission to defend themselves. But in those kingdoms, in those days, like today under Clinton, most were unarmed. For only the kings guards, army and police were suppose to be armed. But all it took was that small remnant of what we would call right wing militia members, with God's help and blessings, to turn the tide of battle.

13 The copy of the writing for a commandment to be given in every province was published unto all people, and that the Jews should be ready against that day to avenge themselves on their enemies. So the posts that rode upon mules and camels went out, being hastened and pressed on by the king's commandment. And the decree was given at Shushan the palace. And Mordecai went out from the presence of the king in royal apparel of blue and white, and with a great crown of gold, and with a garment of fine linen and purple: and the city of Shushan rejoiced and was glad. The Jews had light, and gladness, and joy, and honour. And in every province, and in every city, whithersoever the king's commandment and his decree came, the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast and a good day. And many of the people of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell upon them.
Read that last sentence again, "And many of the people of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell upon them.". When God's hand is shown, people come to the Lord. It happened in Egypt when the Hebrews left and here it is happening again. Do we want revival? Do we want to see more come to Christ? Then let's pray. Let us get on our knees and ask God to rescue us, Judea and Israel.

Chapter nine:

1 ¶ Now in the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar, on the thirteenth day of the same, when the king's commandment and his decree drew near to be put in execution, in the day that the enemies of the Jews hoped to have power over them, (though it was turned to the contrary, that the Jews had rule over them that hated them;) The Jews gathered themselves together in their cities throughout all the provinces of the king Ahasuerus, to lay hand on such as sought their hurt: and no man could withstand them; for the fear of them fell upon all people.
God strengthened the few who were armed and He put the fear of Himself and His people in those who would stand in their way. There is those right wing militia members again. Today they are referred to as the Right Wing Christian Fundamentalist Patriots. And as the kings in times past hated them so do the so called and self anointed kings today.

3 And all the rulers of the provinces, and the lieutenants, and the deputies, and officers of the king, helped the Jews; because the fear of Mordecai fell upon them. For Mordecai was great in the king's house, and his fame went out throughout all the provinces: for this man Mordecai waxed greater and greater. Thus the Jews smote all their enemies with the stroke of the sword, and slaughter, and destruction, and did what they would unto those that hated them. And in Shushan the palace the Jews slew and destroyed five hundred men. And Parshandatha, and Dalphon, and Aspatha, And Poratha, and Adalia, and Aridatha, And Parmashta, and Arisai, and Aridai, and Vajezatha, The ten sons of Haman the son of Hammedatha, the enemy of the Jews, slew they; but on the spoil laid they not their hand.
Is God telling us that the anti Christ will have ten sons? I don't know. But you will notice that Haman, in this instance is the anti Christ, satan. And in Daniel the Anti Christ has ten horns. Now many find the horns to be nations, and I do not disagree with nor argue against that, but, don't rule out the idea that it could be ten sons as well.

11 On that day the number of those that were slain in Shushan the palace was brought before the king. And the king said unto Esther the queen, The Jews have slain and destroyed five hundred men in Shushan the palace, and the ten sons of Haman; what have they done in the rest of the king's provinces? Now what is thy petition? and it shall be granted thee: or what is thy request further? and it shall be done.

13 Then said Esther, If it please the king, let it be granted to the Jews which are in Shushan to do to morrow also according unto this day's decree, and let Haman's ten sons be hanged upon the gallows.
Esther knew that there were still more of Haman's allies out there and asked for one more day to rid the world of them, she also realized that Haman and his evil deeds needed to be brought dramatically before the people so, she asked that the dead bodies of Haman's ten sons, not be buried, but hung on the gallows that haman had built for Mordecai and had instead been used to hang Haman. Why did she do this? To continue to put the fear of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the hearts of all those who would think to harm God's people. Imagine what these bodies must have looked like after a few days. After the birds or the air and the heat of the desert day had been at work on them for a few days, imagine the horrible stench. These were no longer the good looking pampered sons of Haman, they were now ugly have eaten sun baked stinking corpses. Kind of like Darwin and his theory. 14 And the king commanded it so to be done: and the decree was given at Shushan; and they hanged Haman's ten sons. For the Jews that were in Shushan gathered themselves together on the fourteenth day also of the month Adar, and slew three hundred men at Shushan; but on the prey they laid not their hand. But the other Jews that were in the king's provinces gathered themselves together, and stood for their lives, and had rest from their enemies, and slew of their foes seventy and five thousand, but they laid not their hands on the prey.
We can learn much from this. There will come a time when God gives His blessings to the Christian to fight horrible government(s), when He does, we must remember to fight for freedom and our lives, but not for money, booty or greed. There are times when the Lord instructs His people to take the land and the houses and the gold and the silver, but not when He is moving to rid the land in which His people are dwelling from the evil that would kill His people. God authorizes plunder when He is giving a new land into the hands of his people, but not when they are simply fighting to save their lives within the borders of the country they live.

17 On the thirteenth day of the month Adar; and on the fourteenth day of the same rested they, and made it a day of feasting and gladness. But the Jews that were at Shushan assembled together on the thirteenth day thereof, and on the fourteenth thereof; and on the fifteenth day of the same they rested, and made it a day of feasting and gladness. Therefore the Jews of the villages, that dwelt in the unwalled towns, made the fourteenth day of the month Adar a day of gladness and feasting, and a good day, and of sending portions one to another.

20 ¶ And Mordecai wrote these things, and sent letters unto all the Jews that were in all the provinces of the king Ahasuerus, both nigh and far. To stablish this among them, that they should keep the fourteenth day of the month Adar, and the fifteenth day of the same, yearly, as the days wherein the Jews rested from their enemies, and the month which was turned unto them from sorrow to joy, and from mourning into a good day: that they should make them days of feasting and joy, and of sending portions one to another, and gifts to the poor.

23 And the Jews undertook to do as they had begun, and as Mordecai had written unto them; Because Haman the son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, the enemy of all the Jews, had devised against the Jews to destroy them, and had cast Pur, that is, the lot, to consume them, and to destroy them;

25 But when Esther came before the king, he commanded by letters that his wicked device, which he devised against the Jews, should return upon his own head, and that he and his sons should be hanged on the gallows.
The ‘his' is not the king and his son's, but Haman and his son's. 26 Wherefore they called these days Purim after the name of Pur. Therefore for all the words of this letter, and of that which they had seen concerning this matter, and which had come unto them, The Jews ordained, and took upon them, and upon their seed, and upon all such as joined themselves unto them, so as it should not fail, that they would keep these two days according to their writing, and according to their appointed time every year; And that these days should be remembered and kept throughout every generation, every family, every province, and every city; and that these days of Purim should not fail from among the Jews, nor the memorial of them perish from their seed. Then Esther the queen, the daughter of Abihail, and Mordecai the Jew, wrote with all authority, to confirm this second letter of Purim. And he sent the letters unto all the Jews, to the hundred twenty and seven provinces of the kingdom of Ahasuerus, with words of peace and truth. To confirm these days of Purim in their times appointed, according as Mordecai the Jew and Esther the queen had enjoined them, and as they had decreed for themselves and for their seed, the matters of the fastings and their cry. And the decree of Esther confirmed these matters of Purim; and it was written in the book.

Chapter ten:

1 ¶ And the king Ahasuerus laid a tribute upon the land, and upon the isles of the sea. And all the acts of his power and of his might, and the declaration of the greatness of Mordecai, whereunto the king advanced him, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Media and Persia? For Mordecai the Jew was next unto king Ahasuerus, and great among the Jews, and accepted of the multitude of his brethren, seeking the wealth of his people, and speaking peace to all his seed.
Oh if only the jew in Israel would only learn to read Scripture instead of resting on the false assurances of their religious leaders, if only they would turn to the Messiah begging Him to rescue them. For if this time in history does not turn out to be the beginning of the battle that will lead to the jews turning to the anti Christ for security, that time will come and the only one who can save them is Jesus. For it is only He whom satan fears and trembles before. In the book of Esther, we who are Saved see that we are in the safe and secure hands of the Lord and that as long as we stay close to Him in prayer, He will always defend and keep us. We need not fear the current administration, nor do we need to fear the un or the next administration. We only need to fear God. For He has chosen us out of the world and He will always keep us and protect us.
Always keep this thought in mind.

For those of us who are Saved, this time on earth is the closest we will ever come to hell, but for those who are unsaved, this time on earth is their heaven.

May the Lord Jesus bless you and may He open the eyes of all those who read these words to His magnificence and Lordship. For He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords, He and the Father are one, for He is GOD!

Jesus be with all of you.
Amen.

I can fix that.


Esther part four, or, I can fix that.

Chapter five 1 ¶ So the king and Haman came to banquet with Esther the queen. And the king said again unto Esther on the second day at the banquet of wine, What is thy petition, queen Esther? and it shall be granted thee: and what is thy request? and it shall be performed, even to the half of the kingdom.

3 Then Esther the queen answered and said, If I have found favour in thy sight, O king, and if it please the king, let my life be given me at my petition, and my people at my request: For we are sold, I and my people, to be destroyed, to be slain, and to perish. But if we had been sold for bondmen and bondwomen, I had held my tongue, although the enemy could not countervail the king's damage. God is telling us through Esther that if God's people were only bing sold as slaves, that would be ok, but to enslave is not the enemies goal, it is to destroy. Satan's goal hasn't changed one bit, he has no desire to only enslave the Born Again Christian, he wants to destroy us, to kill us. Not because that would hurt us, but in an effort to silence our witness for Christ. But even satan misses the point of Scripture at times. He tends to read it to much like the liberal theologist, the one trying to tell us what God really meant. For he missed this:
Matthew 3:9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
If satan wiped out ever Believer to day, God could and would raise up new Born Again Believers seconds later. But satan and his minions won't accept that.

5 Then the king Ahasuerus answered and said unto Esther the queen, Who is he, and where is he, that durst presume in his heart to do so? And Esther said, The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman. Then Haman was afraid before the king and the queen. And the king arising from the banquet of wine in his wrath went into the palace garden: and Haman stood up to make request for his life to Esther the queen; for he saw that there was evil determined against him by the king. Then the king returned out of the palace garden into the place of the banquet of wine; and Haman was fallen upon the bed whereon Esther was. Then said the king, Will he force the queen also before me in the house? As the word went out of the king's mouth, they covered Haman's face. And Harbonah, one of the chamberlains, said before the king, Behold also, the gallows fifty cubits high, which Haman had made for Mordecai, who had spoken good for the king, standeth in the house of Haman. Then the king said, Hang him thereon.

10 So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king's wrath pacified.

Chapter eight;
1 ¶ On that day did the king Ahasuerus give the house of Haman the Jews' enemy unto Esther the queen. And Mordecai came before the king; for Esther had told what he was unto her. And the king took off his ring, which he had taken from Haman, and gave it unto Mordecai. And Esther set Mordecai over the house of Haman.

3 ¶ And Esther spake yet again before the king, and fell down at his feet, and besought him with tears to put away the mischief of Haman the Agagite, and his device that he had devised against the Jews. Then the king held out the golden sceptre toward Esther. So Esther arose, and stood before the king, and said, If it please the king, and if I have found favour in his sight, and the thing seem right before the king, and I be pleasing in his eyes, let it be written to reverse the letters devised by Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, which he wrote to destroy the Jews which are in all the king's provinces: For how can I endure to see the evil that shall come unto my people? or how can I endure to see the destruction of my kindred?
Now keep in mind, the law once signed by the king was not suppose to be able to be changed by anyone. Remember how Daniel was cast into the lions den because the king could not change his own decree? Daniel chapter six and in the next verse, but when God wants it done, a way will be found.

7 Then the king Ahasuerus said unto Esther the queen and to Mordecai the Jew, Behold, I have given Esther the house of Haman, and him they have hanged upon the gallows, because he laid his hand upon the Jews. Write ye also for the Jews, as it liketh you, in the king's name, and seal it with the king's ring: for the writing which is written in the king's name, and sealed with the king's ring, may no man reverse. Notice the king has used his onwn rule to change his own rule so to speak. for the writing which is written in the king's name, and sealed with the king's ring, may no man reverse. Yet, while he writing to destroy the Jews, now he was writing to save the Jews.

9 Then were the king's scribes called at that time in the third month, that is, the month Sivan, on the three and twentieth day thereof; and it was written according to all that Mordecai commanded unto the Jews, and to the lieutenants, and the deputies and rulers of the provinces which are from India unto Ethiopia, an hundred twenty and seven provinces, unto every province according to the writing thereof, and unto every people after their language, and to the Jews according to their writing, and according to their language.

10 And he wrote in the king Ahasuerus' name, and sealed it with the king's ring, and sent letters by posts on horseback, and riders on mules, camels, and young dromedaries: Wherein the king granted the Jews which were in every city to gather themselves together, and to stand for their life, to destroy, to slay, and to cause to perish, all the power of the people and province that would assault them, both little ones and women, and to take the spoil of them for a prey, upon one day in all the provinces of king Ahasuerus, namely, upon the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month Adar. The copy of the writing for a commandment to be given in every province was published unto all people, and that the Jews should be ready against that day to avenge themselves on their enemies. So the posts that rode upon mules and camels went out, being hastened and pressed on by the king's commandment. And the decree was given at Shushan the palace.

15 ¶ And Mordecai went out from the presence of the king in royal apparel of blue and white, and with a great crown of gold, and with a garment of fine linen and purple: and the city of Shushan rejoiced and was glad. The Jews had light, and gladness, and joy, and honour. And in every province, and in every city, whithersoever the king's commandment and his decree came, the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast and a good day. And many of the people of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell upon them.
God has proven once again that HE is in control and in the next study we will see even more proof of both God's power and His love for those who are His.

The Lord bless and be with you all, and may He be with all of us and ours this day. Amen

May the Lord God of all, the Creator of all be with you and yours this day. And would you keep in prayer my pastors wife Helen. Helen has been ill for the last eight years and the Lord has kept her pain free, but now a new twist has come into her illness that could, without the Lord's intervention, make here days on earth very painful in deed. Pray the Lord will keep this wonderful old Christian Lady free from all pain and suffering.

God bless you all, amen.

Haman, You're toast!

Esther chapters five and six, and we can see that God is close to saying yes to His people. As we read and study the next two chapters, you can just about see God Almighty looking down from heaven above and saying, "Haman, you're toast!".

Till this point in time, we have seen the king fire his queen, have the best looking virgins rounded up for his pleasure under the guise of having a ‘let's replace the queen contest'. We have seen the forces of satan working in the body of Haman in an all out attempt to destroy the Jews. We have seen the remarkable obedience of a young Jewish virgin named Esther. As she obeys her uncle with scarce more than a feeble attempt to get him to change his mind, even though what he wanted her to do would almost surely cost her her life. We have seen the Jews of all Persia join together in crying out to the Lord God above in sackcloth with fasting and prayer. Now we will see God move.

Esther chapters five and six.
1 ¶ Now it came to pass on the third day, that Esther put on her royal apparel, and stood in the inner court of the king's house, over against the king's house: and the king sat upon his royal throne in the royal house, over against the gate of the house.
Can't you just hear Esther praying, "Oh please Lord God above, protect Your handmaid, please God, please Father, please let the king let me live....."

2. And it was so, when the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, that she obtained favour in his sight: and the king held out to Esther the golden sceptre that was in his hand. So Esther drew near, and touched the top of the sceptre. Then said the king unto her, What wilt thou, queen Esther? and what is thy request? it shall be even given thee to the half of the kingdom.
Can you hear Esther now praising and thanking the Lord God? For not only was she still alive, the king had greeted her with a smile.

4 And Esther answered, If it seem good unto the king, let the king and Haman come this day unto the banquet that I have prepared for him.

5 Then the king said, Cause Haman to make haste, that he may do as Esther hath said. So the king and Haman came to the banquet that Esther had prepared. And the king said unto Esther at the banquet of wine, What is thy petition? and it shall be granted thee: and what is thy request? even to the half of the kingdom it shall be performed. Then answered Esther, and said, My petition and my request is; If I have found favour in the sight of the king, and if it please the king to grant my petition, and to perform my request, let the king and Haman come to the banquet that I shall prepare for them, and I will do to morrow as the king hath said.
But why has Esther brought this Jew hating Haman? Well as we learn from Isaiah 55:8 and 9,
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
God has His own way of doing things, in His time and in His way. It is not for us to understand, it is but for us to obey. And if we perish in doing the Lord's work and ways, then so be it. For it is better to perish doing God's work than to live in the darkness and following the orders of satan. For to die doing the Lord's work is to find paradise and life eternal in heaven. To follow satan is to spend eternity in the horrors and torture of hell.

9 ¶ Then went Haman forth that day joyful and with a glad heart: but when Haman saw Mordecai in the king's gate, that he stood not up, nor moved for him, he was full of indignation against Mordecai. Nevertheless Haman refrained himself: and when he came home, he sent and called for his friends, and Zeresh his wife. And Haman told them of the glory of his riches, and the multitude of his children, and all the things wherein the king had promoted him, and how he had advanced him above the princes and servants of the king. Haman said moreover, Yea, Esther the queen did let no man come in with the king unto the banquet that she had prepared but myself; and to morrow am I invited unto her also with the king. Yet all this availeth me nothing, so long as I see Mordecai the Jew sitting at the king's gate.
Man has satan poisoned this guy or what? Does not Haman remind you of Stalin and his 100 million murdered Jews and Born Again Christians? Hitler and his 6 million executed Born Again Christians and Jews? Doesn't Haman remind you of Clinton and his assault on the Born Again Christians, his out and out war against the baby in the womb resulting in millions upon millions of babies worldwide, trapped in the supposed safety of their mothers wombs, being executed and offered up as a blood sacrifice to their god satan? Clinton's hatred towards Israel that is so intense that he has forced Israel to all but surrender to the heathen arabs? Yet the liberal Jews and Laodicean Christians still bow to clinton, they still refuse to see him for what he is, how much more before they wrap themselves in sackcloth and cry out the Lord God Creator?

14 Then said Zeresh his wife and all his friends unto him, Let a gallows be made of fifty cubits high, and to morrow speak thou unto the king that Mordecai may be hanged thereon: then go thou in merrily with the king unto the banquet. And the thing pleased Haman; and he caused the gallows to be made.

Chapter six;
1 ¶ On that night could not the king sleep, and he commanded to bring the book of records of the chronicles; and they were read before the king. And it was found written, that Mordecai had told of Bigthana and Teresh, two of the king's chamberlains, the keepers of the door, who sought to lay hand on the king Ahasuerus. And the king said, What honour and dignity hath been done to Mordecai for this? Then said the king's servants that ministered unto him, There is nothing done for him.
Watch God work, keep in mind, the Jews have been praying and fasting, they have been asking the Lord God to help them, they have turned back to God.

4 ¶ And the king said, Who is in the court? Now Haman was come into the outward court of the king's house, to speak unto the king to hang Mordecai on the gallows that he had prepared for him.
And the king's servants said unto him, Behold, Haman standeth in the court. And the king said, Let him come in. So Haman came in. And the king said unto him, What shall be done unto the man whom the king delighteth to honour? Now Haman thought in his heart, To whom would the king delight to do honour more than to myself? And Haman answered the king, For the man whom the king delighteth to honour, Let the royal apparel be brought which the king useth to wear, and the horse that the king rideth upon, and the crown royal which is set upon his head: And let this apparel and horse be delivered to the hand of one of the king's most noble princes, that they may array the man withal whom the king delighteth to honour, and bring him on horseback through the street of the city, and proclaim before him, Thus shall it be done to the man whom the king delighteth to honour.

10 Then the king said to Haman, Make haste, and take the apparel and the horse, as thou hast said, and do even so to Mordecai the Jew, that sitteth at the king's gate: let nothing fail of all that thou hast spoken.
See the hand of God? Does this not prove beyond a doubt that God is always in control? You, if you are His, a Born Again Believer, go to the Father in the name of the Son in prayer and He will hear you, He will answer you, He will rescue you.

11 Then took Haman the apparel and the horse, and arrayed Mordecai, and brought him on horseback through the street of the city, and proclaimed before him, Thus shall it be done unto the man whom the king delighteth to honour.
Haman was the number two man in the kingdom, yet even he was not in a position to argue with the king. This is a perfect picture of Christ, satan and the church. Visualize Christ as the King and satan as Haman. You and I, the church of Philadelphia, the Born Again Christian community, the bride of the Lord, are Mordecai. For as Jesus has told us in
Revelation chapter three, verses 7-9;
7 ¶ And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. 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.
As Haman worshiped and payed homage to Mordecai, so will satan, his minion, his ilk and those who serve him, pay homage to us.

12 ¶ And Mordecai came again to the king's gate. But Haman hasted to his house mourning, and having his head covered. And Haman told Zeresh his wife and all his friends every thing that had befallen him. Then said his wise men and Zeresh his wife unto him, If Mordecai be of the seed of the Jews, before whom thou hast begun to fall, thou shalt not prevail against him, but shalt surely fall before him.
Notice how the minions of satan are giving in to the fear of God? Do you see how Haman's wife and friends are telling him that he doesn't stand a chance against the seed of the Jews, "Then said his wise men and Zeresh his wife unto him, If Mordecai be of the seed of the Jews, before whom thou hast begun to fall, thou shalt not prevail against him, but shalt surely fall before him.". Satan, his minions, his ilk, his demons and his earthly human followers, know deep down inside that they can't win the war, oh, they can win a skirmish here and there, but the war belongs to the Lord as does victory.

14 And while they were yet talking with him, came the king's chamberlains, and hasted to bring Haman unto the banquet that Esther had prepared.
Keep in mind, the Lord has yet to authorize the use of rebellion to His people.

Esther part two...


To refresh your memory of Esther part one, click here. Good morning, let the Lord God Yeshua be with and bless you and yours this fine day, may He look kindly and lovingly upon you, may He protect you and yours from the evil one, his minions and his ilk, his demons and those who serve him knowingly and unknowingly. May Jesus bring your name to the Father this morning with a smile upon His face and may He bless those who bless you and I and deal with those who curse us.

Now, let us return to Esther. Remember, what we are looking for is just how far a government must go before God authorizes us to rebel.

Esther, chapter three,
1 ¶ After these things did king Ahasuerus promote Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, and advanced him, and set his seat above all the princes that were with him. And all the king's servants, that were in the king's gate, bowed, and reverenced Haman: for the king had so commanded concerning him. But Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence.
Why didn't Mordecai bow down to Haman? Because he understodd God's word, he understood and abided by God's word. Mordecai didn't look at Holy Scriptrue as something for the last generation, he looked at as something for him to abide by;
Exodus chapter 20, verses 1-6
1 ¶ And God spake all these words, saying,
2 I am the LORD thy God! It is I which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage! Thou shalt have no other gods before Me! Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth! Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them! For I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me!
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love Me, and keep my commandments. Mordecai wanted to make sure that he was in and remained in verse 6, not one of those in verse 5. He wanted to make sure that God showed mercy to him and loved him, not despised him and cursed his children to the third and fourth generation. What about you?

3 Then the king's servants, which were in the king's gate, said unto Mordecai, Why transgressest thou the king's commandment?

4 Now it came to pass, when they spake daily unto him, and he hearkened not unto them, that they told Haman, to see whether Mordecai's matters would stand: for he had told them that he was a Jew. And when Haman saw that Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence, then was Haman full of wrath. And he thought scorn to lay hands on Mordecai alone; for they had shewed him the people of Mordecai: wherefore Haman sought to destroy all the Jews that were throughout the whole kingdom of Ahasuerus, even the people of Mordecai.

7 ¶ In the first month, that is, the month Nisan, in the twelfth year of king Ahasuerus, they cast Pur, that is, the lot, before Haman from day to day, and from month to month, to the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar. And Haman said unto king Ahasuerus, There is a certain people scattered abroad and dispersed among the people in all the provinces of thy kingdom; and their laws are diverse from all people; neither keep they the king's laws: therefore it is not for the king's profit to suffer them. If it please the king, let it be written that they may be destroyed: and I will pay ten thousand talents of silver to the hands of those that have the charge of the business, to bring it into the king's treasuries.
You think clinton and his flunky playing at being attorney general,janet reno, is bad, read again what Haman wanted to do. And then read verses ten and eleven.

10 And the king took his ring from his hand, and gave it unto Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, the Jews' enemy. And the king said unto Haman, The silver is given to thee, the people also, to do with them as it seemeth good to thee.
King Ahasuerus tells Haman to keep his money and go kill the people, he batted no more of an eyelash in ordering the slaughter of all the jews than did clinton in his edict to kill the Christians at mount Carmel outside of Waco.

12 Then were the king's scribes called on the thirteenth day of the first month, and there was written according to all that Haman had commanded unto the king's lieutenants, and to the governors that were over every province, and to the rulers of every people of every province according to the writing thereof, and to every people after their language; in the name of king Ahasuerus was it written, and sealed with the king's ring. And the letters were sent by posts into all the king's provinces, to destroy, to kill, and to cause to perish, all Jews, both young and old, little children and women, in one day, even upon the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month Adar, and to take the spoil of them for a prey. The copy of the writing for a commandment to be given in every province was published unto all people, that they should be ready against that day. The posts went out, being hastened by the king's commandment, and the decree was given in Shushan the palace. And the king and Haman sat down to drink; but the city Shushan was perplexed.
The majority of the people of Shushan it seems were just as confused by the kings order to kill the jews as most Americans were by clintons order to kill David Koresh and his congregation. But unlike clinton and his order to destroy the federal building in Oklahoma city,Ahasuerus doesn't look for an escape goat, he takes credit for his evil deeds himself. But still no order from God to act, to rebel. Why? What is God waiting for? Why was God allowing the jews to be persecuted the way they were? Why is God allowing Christians around the world and throughout the USA to be persecuted and even killed? What is He waiting for? Read chapter four and learn!

Chapter four,
1 ¶ When Mordecai perceived all that was done, Mordecai rent his clothes, and put on sackcloth with ashes, and went out into the midst of the city, and cried with a loud and a bitter cry; and came even before the king's gate: for none might enter into the king's gate clothed with sackcloth. And in every province, whithersoever the king's commandment and his decree came, there was great mourning among the Jews, and fasting, and weeping, and wailing; and many lay in sackcloth and ashes. They ripped their clothes, put on sackcloth and wailed and cried out?
Who do you think they were crying out to? What do you think they were crying and wailing about? Could it have been that they saw the helplessness of their plight and were crying out to God, asking His forgiveness and begging for His help?

4 So Esther's maids and her chamberlains came and told it her. Then was the queen exceedingly grieved; and she sent raiment to clothe Mordecai, and to take away his sackcloth from him: but he received it not.
Like Washington and the local and state governments today, the government then was so out of touch with the people that they didn't even know that folks were upset. Remember back at the very end of chapter three, "The posts went out, being hastened by the king's commandment, and the decree was given in Shushan the palace. And the king and Haman sat down to drink; but the city Shushan was perplexed. " Haman and the king sit down to a few beers while the folks outside are saying "What, what's going on here? What did these jews do to deserve death?" Yet, note, no uprising

5 ¶ Then called Esther for Hatach, one of the king's chamberlains, whom he had appointed to attend upon her, and gave him a commandment to Mordecai, to know what it was, and why it was. So Hatach went forth to Mordecai unto the street of the city, which was before the king's gate. And Mordecai told him of all that had happened unto him, and of the sum of the money that Haman had promised to pay to the king's treasuries for the Jews, to destroy them.

8 Also he gave him the copy of the writing of the decree that was given at Shushan to destroy them, to shew it unto Esther, and to declare it unto her, and to charge her that she should go in unto the king, to make supplication unto him, and to make request before him for her people. And Hatach came and told Esther the words of Mordecai.
Notice the confidence that Mordecai has that he raised Esther to be dutiful and obedient to him, regardless of her position, wealth, political power etc. He tells her eunuch to tell her to go to the king, use her influence and save her people.

10 Again Esther spake unto Hatach, and gave him commandment unto Mordecai; All the king's servants, and the people of the king's provinces, do know, that whosoever, whether man or woman, shall come unto the king into the inner court, who is not called, there is one law of his to put him to death, except such to whom the king shall hold out the golden sceptre, that he may live: but I have not been called to come in unto the king these thirty days. And they told to Mordecai Esther's words.
Bottom line, Esther said "But dad, if I go to the king without his having called me, he'll kill me, you know the laws." Natural for a daughter to be scared, but notice, she didn't say no. she is only trying to get him to change his order to her.

13 Then Mordecai commanded to answer Esther, Think not with thyself that thou shalt escape in the king's house, more than all the Jews. For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father's house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?
Mordecai didn't yell at Esther, he knew he didn't have to, he knew that all he had to do, was reinforce his original order to her and she would obey, for he had raised her both with love and with the understanding of the ten commandments of God. Exodus 20: verse 12;
Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
Mordecai knew that Esther was scared, he knew that she feared for her life, he knew that what he was asking her to do was hard. He knew that he was asking this young girl, his daughter, to put her life on the line, but he also knew that she would obey. So, he reinforced her by giving her reason to go forth to the king by asking her if she thought she would be exempt and if she escaped the kings edict, would she escape God.

15 Then Esther bade them return Mordecai this answer, Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.
"Dad, I'll go and if I die, well so be it, but will you and the jews join me and my maids in fasting and praying to God for the next three days, so the Lord God will be with me." That's what she has responded, what would your daughter do? Obey or watch you die? And who do you think she was fasting for and prying to?

17 So Mordecai went his way, and did according to all that Esther had commanded him.
Can you not just see Mordecai going into the synagogues and homes of the jews, telling them that his daughter will go to the king and ask his help, but that we all must pray to God with fasting for the next three days, asking God to be with her and to touch the heart of the king. But will God listen? We will see.

May the God whom Esther and Mordecai cried out to be with and bless you all, amen.

Why is this important?


The last thought dealt with the first two chapters of the book of Esther, and we will get back to it very shortly, but first, let us look at one of the things that makes this subject; "Can a Christian use deadly force and if so when?" so important. In the United States, most churches discuss this on a strictly academic basis. For until now, there really hasn't been a need to look at this subject in great detail. While Christians throughout the world are faced with this as a daily life and death decision, most of those Christians are either unarmed or so poorly armed that it is not a question of real importance to them either.

But, the time is coming when it appears that here in well armed USA, the subject will pass from the academic to the real. For the next three days, I would like you to read and study the information contained in the link below. And feel free to follow the links from the link below, then we will return to the Book of Esther.

The prophecy of George Washington, son of the Republic...

The Lord Jesus, Messiah Yeshua be with you.
Amen.

Wednesday, September 27th, 2000 AD

So, you are still unarmed?


It seems as though a day doesn't pass that I either bump into someone who is aghast that I carry a gun or one who still claims and brags about being unarmed. Perhaps if we can not learn from recent history, we can get more ancient history to speak to these hard headed stiff necked ones. Let us spend a few days on the book of Esther, the seventeenth book in the Bible. For, I get so tired of men and women telling me they would die for their children, while at the same time trying to explain to me why they do not even have the means to defend their children from the horrors of satan's minions, ilk and slaves within and without government.

Many ignore the Book of Esther, because throughout the entire book not one direct mention of God is made, but to those, I would have to ask, "Whom do you think they were crying out to when they were clothed in sackcloth and sat in ashes? Whom do you think they cried out to while fasting for three days and three nights?" The Book of Esther also gives us serious insight into answering the question, "When can a Born Again Believer use deadly force?".

Now, without further commentary, let us turn to the Book of Esther.

Chapter one:

1 ¶ Now it came to pass in the days of Ahasuerus, (this is Ahasuerus which reigned, from India even unto Ethiopia, over an hundred and seven and twenty provinces:)
Ahasuerus is also known as Xerxes.

2 That in those days, when the king Ahasuerus sat on the throne of his kingdom, which was in Shushan the palace,
Shushan is also known as the citadel of Susa.
In the third year of his reign, he made a feast unto all his princes and his servants; the power of Persia and Media, the nobles and princes of the provinces, being before him: When he shewed the riches of his glorious kingdom and the honour of his excellent majesty many days, even an hundred and fourscore days.
180 days, one half year.

5 And when these days were expired, the king made a feast unto all the people that were present in Shushan the palace, both unto great and small, seven days, in the court of the garden of the king's palace; Where were white, green, and blue, hangings, fastened with cords of fine linen and purple to silver rings and pillars of marble: the beds were of gold and silver, upon a pavement of red, and blue, and white, and black, marble. And they gave them drink in vessels of gold, (the vessels being diverse one from another,) and royal wine in abundance, according to the state of the king. And the drinking was according to the law; none did compel: for so the king had appointed to all the officers of his house, that they should do according to every man's pleasure.

9 Also Vashti the queen made a feast for the women in the royal house which belonged to king Ahasuerus.

10 ¶ On the seventh day, when the heart of the king was merry with wine, he commanded Mehuman, Biztha, Harbona, Bigtha, and Abagtha, Zethar, and Carcas, the seven chamberlains (Eunuchs) that served in the presence of Ahasuerus the king, to bring Vashti the queen before the king with the crown royal, to shew the people and the princes her beauty: for she was fair to look on. But the queen Vashti refused to come at the king's commandment by his chamberlains: therefore was the king very wroth, and his anger burned in him.
King Ahasuerus had in essence order to queen to come to his drunken party, dressed in nothing more than her crown. This is important, the king had ordered the queen to appear nude to entertain his friends. And she refused.

13 Then the king said to the wise men, which knew the times, (for so was the king's manner toward all that knew law and judgment: And the next unto him was Carshena, Shethar, Admatha, Tarshish, Meres, Marsena, and Memucan, the seven princes of Persia and Media, which saw the king's face, and which sat the first in the kingdom;) What shall we do unto the queen Vashti according to law, because she hath not performed the commandment of the king Ahasuerus by the chamberlains?
King Ahasuerus called together his chief of staff and cabinet to help him decide what to do with this disobedient queen.

16 And Memucan answered before the king and the princes, Vashti the queen hath not done wrong to the king only, but also to all the princes, and to all the people that are in all the provinces of the king Ahasuerus. For this deed of the queen shall come abroad unto all women, so that they shall despise their husbands in their eyes, when it shall be reported, The king Ahasuerus commanded Vashti the queen to be brought in before him, but she came not. Likewise shall the ladies of Persia and Media say this day unto all the king's princes, which have heard of the deed of the queen. Thus shall there arise too much contempt and wrath. If it please the king, let there go a royal commandment from him, and let it be written among the laws of the Persians and the Medes, that it be not altered, That Vashti come no more before king Ahasuerus; and let the king give her royal estate unto another that is better than she.
When the king replaced the queen, it wasn't like today's divorces, queen Vashti is never heard from again and history is very silent about her, but it can be assumed that the queen was killed, sold or given away as a gift to some very minor dignitary in the furthest corner of the kingdom. For you'll notice that the councilors of the king show no concern about the queen, only their own power over their belongings, their wives, concubines and slave girls. They seem to think about the same of their women then as government today thinks of it's subjects.

20 And when the king's decree which he shall make shall be published throughout all his empire, (for it is great,) all the wives shall give to their husbands honour, both to great and small. And the saying pleased the king and the princes; and the king did according to the word of Memucan: For he sent letters into all the king's provinces, into every province according to the writing thereof, and to every people after their language, that every man should bear rule in his own house, and that it should be published according to the language of every people.
Look, this was a local matter, yet the king sent his decree getting rid of Vashti throughout his entire kingdom, he wanted to make sure that were ever she showed up, if she were still alive, that she would not be treated as royalty. I tend to think she was sold as a prostitute to a roving band of harlots, but that is only speculation on my part. The important thing is that there is no authorized, by God, action of armed rebellion by Vashti or her family.

Chapter two:

1 ¶ After these things, when the wrath of king Ahasuerus was appeased, he remembered Vashti, and what she had done, and what was decreed against her. Then said the king's servants that ministered unto him, Let there be fair young virgins sought for the king: even with a harem of huge proportions, the king missed Vashti, must have been some woman.
So as the king pined away, his servants, who probably caught the brunt of his misery, came up with a way to pre occupy the king and relive his frustrations.

3 And let the king appoint officers in all the provinces of his kingdom, that they may gather together all the fair young virgins unto Shushan the palace, to the house of the women, unto the custody of Hege the king's chamberlain, keeper of the women; and let their things for purification be given them: And let the maiden which pleaseth the king be queen instead of Vashti. And the thing pleased the king; and he did so. Now in Shushan the palace there was a certain Jew, whose name was Mordecai, the son of Jair, the son of Shimei, the son of Kish, a Benjamite; Who had been carried away from Jerusalem with the captivity which had been carried away with Jeconiah king of Judah, whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away.

Kish? Does that name sound familiar to you?
1Samuel 9:1 ¶ Now there was a man of Benjamin, whose name was Kish, the son of Abiel, the son of Zeror, the son of Bechorath, the son of Aphiah, a Benjamite, a mighty man of power.
1Samuel 9:3 ¶ And the asses of Kish Saul's father were lost. And Kish said to Saul his son, Take now one of the servants with thee, and arise, go seek the asses. Yes, Kish was the father of Saul, the first king of Israel, the great great grandfather of Mordecai.

7 And he brought up Hadassah, that is, Esther, his uncle's daughter: for she had neither father nor mother, and the maid was fair and beautiful; whom Mordecai, when her father and mother were dead, took for his own daughter. So it came to pass, when the king's commandment and his decree was heard, and when many maidens were gathered together unto Shushan the palace, to the custody of Hegai, that Esther was brought also unto the king's house, to the custody of Hegai, keeper of the women.
Wow, look here, the king has taken Esther, the virgin adopted daughter of Mordecai, yet, watch, still no authorization to use force.

9 And the maiden pleased him, and she obtained kindness of him; and he speedily gave her her things for purification, with such things as belonged to her, and seven maidens, which were meet to be given her, out of the king's house: and he preferred her and her maids unto the best place of the house of the women. Hegai wasn't going to keep the king waiting for Esther, he was sending her to the front of the line. He immediately started her on the year of preparation for her night with the king.

10 Esther had not shewed her people nor her kindred: for Mordecai had charged her that she should not shew it. And Mordecai walked every day before the court of the women's house, to know how Esther did, and what should become of her.
Mordecai and Esther obviously had a very close daughter father relationship, for even though Esther had been taken to serve the king, Mordecai checked on her well being every day, and she, kept her religion quiet, not telling the king she was a jew, because Mordecai had told her not to. As you will see, God has his own timing here.

12 Now when every maid's turn was come to go in to king Ahasuerus, after that she had been twelve months, according to the manner of the women, (for so were the days of their purifications accomplished, to wit, six months with oil of myrrh, and six months with sweet odours, and with other things for the purifying of the women;) Then thus came every maiden unto the king; whatsoever she desired was given her to go with her out of the house of the women unto the king's house. In the evening she went, and on the morrow she returned into the second house of the women, to the custody of Shaashgaz, the king's chamberlain, which kept the concubines: she came in unto the king no more, except the king delighted in her, and that she were called by name.

15 Now when the turn of Esther, the daughter of Abihail the uncle of Mordecai, who had taken her for his daughter, was come to go in unto the king, she required nothing but what Hegai the king's chamberlain, the keeper of the women, appointed. And Esther obtained favour in the sight of all them that looked upon her. So Esther was taken unto king Ahasuerus into his house royal in the tenth month, which is the month Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign. And the king loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favour in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti.

18 Then the king made a great feast unto all his princes and his servants, even Esther's feast; and he made a release to the provinces, and gave gifts, according to the state of the king. And when the virgins were gathered together the second time, then Mordecai sat in the king's gate. Esther had not yet shewed her kindred nor her people; as Mordecai had charged her: for Esther did the commandment of Mordecai, like as when she was brought up with him.
This obedience to Mordecai will prove itself later.

21 ¶ In those days, while Mordecai sat in the king's gate, two of the king's chamberlains, Bigthan and Teresh, of those which kept the door, were wroth, and sought to lay hand on the king Ahasuerus. And the thing was known to Mordecai, who told it unto Esther the queen; and Esther certified the king thereof in Mordecai's name. And when inquisition was made of the matter, it was found out; therefore they were both hanged on a tree: and it was written in the book of the chronicles before the king.
Notice that Mordecia has just saved the kings life, this is the same king who has taken his beloved little girl for his own personal sexual gratification. Notice also that Mordecai didn't go to the king himself, but relayed though Esther the warning to the king. And that while, Esther, a young girl who had been raised to cherish her virginity and was without a doubt betrothed to one of the higher ranking jews in the community, a girl whose virginity was taken, not by her betrothed, but by this heathen king, still obeyed her ‘father' Mordecai and warned the king and saved his life. Leaving us with no doubt that God did not authorized rebellion over the lose of a daughters virginity.

May the Lord be with you all, till tomorrow, God's blessings upon you and yours, amen.

Monday and Tuesday, September 25th and 26th, 2000 AD

Don't expect one who is unsaved to act like a Christian.


Just this past spring, my wife and I found that in order to continue our visit to the prison in Bergin Kentucky, we needed to drastically cut our expenses. The way in which we choose to do this was to buy a small, 19 foot, camper trailer and a used truck to tow it. We bought what seemed to be a great used Jeep Grande Wagoner, a 1989 model with but 140,000 miles on it with a powerhouse 360 engine. For the trailer, we found a 1979 Mallard. In both instances we were buying them from unsaved individuals and in both instances I not only listened to the sellers, I believed them.

I, was a fool, not a fool as Jesus refers to in Matthew 5:22
But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

But a fool as in Luke 12: verse 20.
But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?

For what I did, was to accept their word as I would one of the brethren. And Jesus tells us very clearly that no man can both be a follower of Christ and a follower of satan at the same time.

Matthew 6:24
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.

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

I don't tell you this show my ignorance, nor to try to convince you that I'm a fool, I tell you this in hopes and in prayer that you will learn from my mistake. You see, we used all of our credit to buy those two, and when they kept breaking down., our resources were stretched to very limit and has resulted in my having to now, spend countless hours trying to fix these two enough to get us through the next year or two. All because I trusted two unsaved non believers to do something which is not possible for them to do ---- be honest.

You see, an unsaved one can be honest with another unsaved, but it is not possible for them to be honest and up front with a Saved Born Again Believer. Satan will not allow one of his to be honest with us, for satan hates us almost as much as he hates the Lord Jesus, his creator.

For Jesus has also taught us this, in John the 15th chapter; verses 18- 25.
18. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated Me before it hated you.
Those who are unsaved, may act as if they like you, they may even share some concerns with you, but satan will not allow them to love or even like you down deep.

19. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his Lord. If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept My saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for My name's sake, because they know not Him that sent Me.
If you are a Born Again Christian, you are part of Christ, you are part of His Bride, you are His adopted brother or sister, you are not greater than the Lord, and since they persecuted and hated Him they will also hate and persecute you, even if that means only lying to you to sell you an inferior product.

22. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin. He that hateth Me hateth My Father also. If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both Me and My Father. But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, THEY HATED ME WITHOUT A CAUSE.
The Word of God, the Holy Bible can not lie, it is absolute 100% truth and it tells us that they have hated the Christ without reason, and He, the Christ has told us that we too will be persecuted.

So, when you are buying a product or service from one who is unsaved, be wary, have it checked by one who is a Believer if at all possible. Learn form the Word of God and from my mistake.

The Lord Jesus, the CHRIST, be with you and yours this day and may He take Cec and I by the hand and walk us though this time of difficulty. For while our persecution is nothing compared to those in the Sudan, China, Africa, the Middle East, the Orient and Europe, it is very real to us.
Amen.

.... disorder???


The field of psychiatry has come along way, at least they claim to have. They now seem to have a name for just about everything that ails you. They call it "Turret's syndrome" when a young child 4, 5 , or 6 years old, suddenly breaks out cursing and swearing like a seasoned old sailor. I would call it possessed. Why do I call it possessed, while the esteemed professionals call it a disorder? Two reasons, the first being that the description of a child throwing himself down, swearing and cursing at the top of their lungs, is a description right out of the Bible. The second reason is that God's Word, the Bible, is there for your salvation. The shrink is there for his thousand dollar an hour fee.

Mark 9:14-29
14. And when Jesus came to his disciples, He saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with 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. Jesus 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 the Lord asked the boys father, How long is it ago since this came unto him?

22. 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.

26. 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. And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?

29. And Jesus said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.

Not Ritalin, "but by prayer and fasting". Like so many in the fields of science, those in the practice of psychiatry are so busy trying to prove that God does not exist, that they would prefer to watch someone suffer or waste away on drugs rather than call upon God to heal that person. All the while charging and collecting exorbitant fees.

About twenty five years ago, the association that represents psychiatrist came to the false conclusion that homosexuality, which God calls and abomination, is nothing more than an acceptable alternative life style. Are you sure these are the people you want to take your family too? Would it not be both better and cheaper to just turn to God's Word and God through Jesus for help? I'm not talking about not having an operation done, or fixing a broken leg, I'm talking about bringing your kids to a shrink and having him or her put them on drugs, when it is obvious that they are not mentally ill, but possessed. For the 4, 5, or 6 year old that is rolling around yelling, cussing and swearing at the top of his or her lungs is not a kid in need of drugs, but a kid in need of "but by prayer and fasting" by the child's parents and pastor and church family.

The Lord Jesus be with you all,
Amen. Friday, September 22nd, 2000 AD

Praise God!!!!

Well, for the last few days, Mac has been off line and I have had to rely on his cousin Eileen to proof read for me. Oh how I thank Eileen for the work she has done over the last couple of days helping me to get the thoughts up. But, how I thank God Mac is back. As some of you might have guessed, and as Eileen now knows for a fact, I am not an easy person to proof read for. I have a tendency to change thoughts and conversations in mid stream or mid thought, leaving the proof reader wondering what I'm talking about, Mac and my wife Cecily are probably the only two on earth that have learned to discern between what is thought and what is my wandering thinking out loud.

I thank God above for Mac's patience and Eileen's willingness to fill in for him while he was off line. I would ask you all to ask God's blessings upon both. Now, let us get to today's Christian thought.

I received this e-mail yesterday and thought I would use it today as the basis for the thought.
"THE LORD'S PRAYER

"Our Father which art in heaven,"

--- Yes?
Don't interrupt me. I'm praying

--- But you called me

"Called you? I didn't call you. I'm praying. 'Our Father which art in heaven,"

--- There you did it again

"Did what?"

--- Called me. You said, "Our Father which art in heaven." Here I am. What's on your mind?

"But I didn't mean anything by it. I was, you know, just saying my prayers for the day. I always say the Lord's Prayer. It makes me feel good, kind of like getting a duty done."

--- All right. Go on.

"Hallowed be Thy name."

--- Hold it. What do you mean by that?

"By what?"

--- By "Hallowed be Thy name?" "It means. It means........ Good grief, I don't know what it means. How should I know? It's just a part of the prayer. By the way, what does it mean?"

--- It means honored, holy, wonderful.

"Hey that makes sense. I never thought about what "hallowed" meant before." "Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven."

--- Do you really mean that?

" Sure, why not?"

--- What are you doing about it?

"Doing? Nothing, I guess. I just think it would be kind of neat if you got control of everything down here like you have up there."

--- Have I got control of you?

" Well, I go to church."

--- That isn't what I asked you. What about your temper? You've really got a problem there, you know. And then there's the way you spend your money-all on yourself. And what about the kinds of books you read and what you watch on TV?

"Stop picking on me! I'm just as good as the rest of those people at church."

---Excuse me. I thought you were praying for my will to be done. If that is to happen, it will have to start with the ones who are praying for it. Like you, for example.

"Oh, all right. I guess I do have some hang-ups. Now that you mention it, I could probably name some others."

---So could I.

"I haven't thought about it very much until now, but I'd really like to cut out some of those things. I would like to, you know, be really free."

--- Good. Now we're getting somewhere. We'll work together, you and I. Some victories can be truly won. I'm proud of you.

Look, Lord, I need to finish this up here. This is taking a lot longer than it usually does. "Give us this day our daily bread.

--- You could cut out the bread. It would help you lose weight.

"Hey, wait a minute! What is this, 'Criticize, ME day?' Here I was doing my religious duty, and all of a sudden you break in and remind me of all my hang-ups."

--- Praying is a dangerous thing. You could wind up changed, you know. --- That's what I'm trying to get across to you. Keep praying. I'm interested in the next part of your prayer. -- (Pause) Well, go on.

" I'm scared to."

--- Scared? Of what?

"I know what you'll say."

--- Try me and see.

"Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us."

--- What about Ann?

"See? I knew it! I knew you would bring her up! Why Lord she's told lies about me, spread stories about my family. She never paid back the money she owes me. I've sworn to get even with her!"

--- But your prayer? What about your prayer?

"I didn't mean it."

--Well, at least you're honest. But it's not much fun carrying that load of bitterness inside you, is it?

"No. But, I'll feel better as soon as I get even. Boy, have I got some plans for that neighbor. She'll wish she had never moved into this neighborhood."

--You won't feel any better. You'll feel worse. Revenge isn't sweet. Think of how unhappy you already are. But, I can change all that.

"You can? How?"

--Forgive Ann. Then I'll forgive you. Then the hate and sin will be Ann's problem and not yours. You will have settled your heart.

"Oh, you're right. You always are. And, more than I want to get revenge against Ann, I want to be right with you.
But.......
(Pause)................
(Sigh)............
All right. I forgive her. Help her to find the right road in life Lord. She's bound to be awfully miserable now that I think about it. Anybody who goes around doing the things she does to others has to be out of it. Someway, somehow, show her the right way.

--There now! Wonderful! How do you feel?

"Humm. Well, not bad. Not bad at all. I feel pretty great. You know, I don't think I'll have to go to bed uptight tonight for the first time since I can remember. Maybe I won't be so tired from now on because I'm not getting enough rest.

--You're not through with your prayers. Go on.

"Oh, all right. "And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil."

--Good! Good! I'll do that. Just don't put yourself in a place where you can be tempted.

"What do you mean by that?

--Don't turn the TV on when you know the laundry needs to be done and the house needs to be picked up. Also, about the time you spend with your friends, if you can't influence the conversation to positive things, perhaps you should rethink the value of those friendships. Another thing, your neighbors and friends shouldn't be your standard for "keeping up. And please don't use me as an escape hatch."

" I don't understand that last part."

--Sure you do. You've done it a lot of times. You get caught in a bad situation. You get in trouble and then you come running to me: "Lord, help me out of this mess, and I promise you I'll never do it again." You remember some of those bargains you tried to make with me?

"Yes, and I'm ashamed. Lord, I really am."

---Which bargain are you remembering?

"Well, there was the night that my husband was gone and the children and I were home alone. The wind was blowing so hard I thought the roof would go any minute and tornado warnings were out. I remember saying, 'Oh God, if you spare us, I'll never skip my devotions again."

--I protected you, but you didn't keep your promise, did you?

"I'm sorry, Lord I really am. Up until now I thought that if I just prayed the Lord's Prayer everyday, then I could do what I liked. I didn't expect anything to happen like this."

--Go ahead and finish your prayer.

"For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen"

--Do you know what would bring me glory? What would really make me happy?

"No, but --- I'd like to know. I want to please you. I can see what a mess I've made of my life. And I can see how great it would be to really be one of your followers.

--You just answered the question.

"I did?"

--Yes. The thing that would bring me glory is to have people like you truly love me. And I see that happening between us. Now that some of these old sins are exposed and out of the way, there is no telling what we can do together.

"Lord, let's see what we can make of me, OK?"

--Yes, let's see.

DON'T REPEAT THE LORD'S PRAYER, PRAY THE LORD'S PRAYER.

Smiles! Lois"
Thank you Peggy and thank you Lois.

What about you, do you pray out of duty or do you pray out of love for the Lord? What if Jesus answered you as you prayed, would you be surprised and startled or would you be delighted and expectant?
The Lord JESUS be with you all,
Amen.

So, who is this JESUS?


Is Jesus the Christ? Is Yeshua the Messiah? Did God Himself come to earth in the form a man named Jesus to fulfill prophecy and be the perfect sacrifice and atonement for our sins? Well, there are items of prophecy in the Old Testament that Jesus, Yeshua in the Hebrew, would have to fulfill to be the Christ, the Messiah in the Hebrew. Now, we are not going to look at the easy ones like healing the sick and raising the dead, we are going to look at the toughest one, the one prophesying the manner in which the Messiah must end His ministry here on earth.

I'm using two translations here, the King James 1611 Authorized version and the Young's literal translation.

In Psalm 41:9, we are told that the messiah must be betrayed by a close friend:
9 Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me. (KJV)
9 Even mine ally, in whom I trusted, One eating my bread, made great the heel against me, (YLT)

Was JESUS betrayed by a close friend?
Luke 22:47&48
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? (KJV)
47 ¶ And while He is speaking, lo, a multitude, and he who is called Judas, one of the twelve, was coming before them, and he came nigh to Jesus to kiss Him, and Jesus said to him, `Judas, with a kiss the Son of Man dost thou deliver up?' (YLT)

Judas was one of Yeshua's closest friends, he was one of the twelve and he betrayed Jesus.
But this friend could not just betray, he had to betray for a certain amount of silver, 30 pieces to be exact according to Zechariah 11:12
12 And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver. (KJV)
12 And I say unto them: `If good in your eyes, give my hire, and if not, forbear;' and they weigh out my hire--thirty silverlings. (YLT)

Did Judas sell out Jesus for thirty pieces of silver?
Yes, they did, look at Matthew 26:14&15
14 ¶ Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, and said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver Him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver. (KJV)
14 ¶ Then one of the twelve, who is called Judas Iscariot, having gone unto the chief priests, said, `what are ye willing to give me, and I will deliver Him up to you?' and they weighed out to him thirty silverlings, (YLT)

According to Old Testament prophecy, Jesus in order to be the Messiah must be falsely accused, spit upon, silent throughout, beat viciously for our sins, crucified with criminals, pierced through the hands and the feet, mocked, reproached, pray for His enemies, forsaken of God, have not even one bone broken, his side pierced and buried with the rich. Quite a feat for anyone short of God wouldn't you say? Look at that list again, how could anyone short of God arrange a death like that? First let's look at the prophecies.
Must be falsely accused: Psalm 35:11
11 ¶ False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge things that I knew not. (KJV)
11 ¶ Violent witnesses rise up, That which I have not known they ask me. (YLT)

Mark 14:57-59
57 And there arose certain, and bare false witness against him, saying, We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands. But neither so did their witness agree together. (KJV)
57 And certain having risen up, were bearing false testimony against him, saying-- `We heard him saying--I will throw down this sanctuary made with hands, and by three days, another made without hands I will build;' and neither so was their testimony alike. (YLT)

But so must He be spit upon according to Isaiah 50:6
6 I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting. (KJV)
6 My back I have given to those smiting, And my cheeks to those plucking out, My face I hid not from shame and spitting. (YLT)

Did this happen to Jesus? Yes it did, as we see in Matthew 26:67
67 Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands, (KJV)
67 Then did they spit in his face and buffet him, and others did slap, (YLT)

To be the Messiah, to fulfill prophecy, Jesus must have been viciously beaten, yet keep silent throughout.
Isaiah 53:5
5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed. (KJV)
5 And He is pierced for our transgressions, Bruised for our iniquities, The chastisement of our peace is on Him, And by His bruise there is healing to us. (YLT)

John 19: 1-5
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. 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! (KJV)
1 ¶ Then, therefore, did Pilate take Jesus and scourge Him, and the soldiers having plaited a crown of thorns, did place it on His head, and a purple garment they put around Him, and said, `Hail! the king of the Jews;' and they were giving Him slaps. Pilate, therefore, again went forth without, and saith to them, `Lo, I do bring Him to you without, that ye may know that in Him I find no fault;' Jesus, therefore, came forth without, bearing the thorny crown and the purple garment; and he saith to them, `Lo, the Man!' (YLT)

Yes Jesus was beat, He was beaten so bad that those that beat Him found another to carry His cross. Yet, Scripture tells us that HE must keep silent throughout, that He is not to utter a word in His own defense.
Isaiah 53:7
7 He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth: He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so He openeth not His mouth. (KJV)
7 It hath been exacted, and He hath answered, And He openeth not His mouth, As a lamb to the slaughter He is brought, And as a sheep before its shearers is dumb, And He openeth not His mouth. (YLT)

What an act of strength it would take to keep silent throughout the ordeal of Roman scourging and torture, but Jesus did just that. He spoke not a word in His own defense.
Mark 15:1-5
1 ¶ And straightway in the morning the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him to Pilate. And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answering said unto him, Thou sayest it. And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing. And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they witness against thee. But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled. (KJV)
1 ¶ And immediately, in the morning, the chief priests having made a consultation, with the elders, and scribes, and the whole sanhedrim, having bound Jesus, did lead away, and delivered him to Pilate; and Pilate questioned him, `Art thou the king of the Jews?' and he answering said to him, `Thou dost say it.' And the chief priests were accusing him of many things, but he answered nothing. And Pilate again questioned him, saying, `Thou dost not answer anything! lo, how many things they do testify against thee!' and Jesus did no more answer anything, so that Pilate wondered. (YLT)

Not one word in own defense, only confirmed that He is the Christ!

Yet He must also be crucified with criminals, pierced through the hands and the feet, mocked, reproached, pray for His enemies, be forsaken of God, have his side pierced and be buried with the rich. For it is written:
Isaiah 53:12
12 Therefore will I divide Him a portion with the great, and He shall divide the spoil with the strong; because He hath poured out His soul unto death: and He was numbered with the transgressors; and He bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors. (KJV)
12 Therefore I give a portion to Him among the many, And with the mighty He apportioneth spoil, Because that He exposed to death His soul, And with transgressors He was numbered, And he the sin of many hath borne, And for transgressors he intercedeth. (YLT)

Jesus did that, Mark 15:27&28
27 And with Him they crucify two thieves; the one on His right hand, and the other on His left. And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, AND HE WAS NUMBERED WITH THE TRANSGRESSORS. (KJV)
27 And with Him they crucify two robbers, one on the right hand, and one on His left, and the Writing was fulfilled that is saying, and the Writing was fulfilled that is saying, `AND WITH LAWLESS ONES HE WAS NUMBERED.' (YLT)

pierced through the hands and the feet,

Zechariah 12:10
10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. (KJV)
10 And I have poured on the house of David, And on the inhabitant of Jerusalem, A spirit of grace and supplications, And they have looked unto Me whom they pierced, And they have mourned over it, Like a mourning over the only one, And they have been in bitterness for it, Like a bitterness over the first-born. (YLT)

John 20, verse 27
27 Then saith Jesus to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. (KJV)
27 then He saith to Thomas, `Bring thy finger hither, and see my hands, and bring thy hand, and put it to my side, and become not unbelieving, but believing.' (YLT)

To be the Messiah, Jesus would have to be mocked and reproached while hanging on the cross, for it is written in Old Testament prophecy;
Psalm 22:7&8 7 All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying, He trusted on the LORD that He would deliver Him: let Him deliver Him, seeing He delighted in Him. (KJV)
7 All beholding me do mock at Me, They make free with the lip--shake the head, `Roll unto Jehovah, He doth deliver Him, He doth deliver Him, for He delighted in Him.' (YLT)
And while this is happening, to be the Messiah, Jesus must have prayed for those who have done this to Him:
4 For my love they are My adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer. (KJV)
4 For My love they oppose Me, and I--prayer! (YLT)

Luke 23:34
34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. (KJV)
34 And Jesus said, `Father, forgive them, for they have not known what they do;. (YLT)

The Messiah must be forsaken of God,broken, his side pierced and buried with the rich.
Psalm 22:1 tells us:
1 ¶ To the chief Musician upon Aijeleth Shahar, A Psalm of David. My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? (KJV)
1 ¶ To the Overseer, on `The Hind of the Morning.' --A Psalm of David. My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me? Far from my salvation, The words of my roaring? (YLT)

In Matthew 27:46 we read;
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? (KJV)
and about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a great voice, saying, `Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?' that is, `My God, my God, why didst Thou forsake Me?' (YLT)

Now it was the custom of the Romans to show a bit of sympathy for those on the cross by breaking their legs caused them to hang by their arms, resulting in a faster death. Nice guys aren't they? But in the case of the Messiah, God must intervene so as not to allow the romans to break the legs of the Lord.

Psalm 34:20 makes this clear,
20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken. (KJV)
20 He is keeping all his bones, One of them hath not been broken. (YLT)

and, while hanging on the cross the Messiah's side must be pierced!
For again, in Zech 12:10 we read:
10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, (KJV)
10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, (YLT)

Did Jesus have even one bone broken? Was He pierced?
Look in John 19: 31-37
31 ¶ The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with Him. But when they came to Jesus, and saw that He was dead already, they brake not His legs: But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced His side, and forthwith came there out blood and water. And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe. For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A BONE OF HIM SHALL NOT BE BROKEN. AND AGAIN ANOTHER SCRIPTURE SAITH, THEY SHALL LOOK ON HIM WHOM THEY PIERCED. (KJV)
31 ¶ The Jews, therefore, that the bodies might not remain on the cross on the sabbath, since it was the preparation, (for that sabbath day was a great one,) asked of Pilate that their legs may be broken, and they taken away. The soldiers, therefore, came, and of the first indeed they did break the legs, and of the other who was crucified with him, and having come to Jesus, when they saw Him already having been dead, they did not break His legs; but one of the soldiers with a spear did pierce His side, and immediately there came forth blood and water; and he who hath seen hath testified, and his testimony is true, and that one hath known that true things he speaketh, that ye also may believe. For these things came to pass, that the Writing may be fulfilled, `A BONE OF HIM SHALL NOT BE BROKEN;' and again another Writing saith, `THEY SHALL LOOK TO HIM WHOM THEY DID PIERCE.'

To be the Messiah, Jesus, after dying on the cross must have been buried with the rich, for Isaiah 53:9 tells us:
9 And He made His grave with the wicked, and with the rich in His death; because He had done no violence, neither was any deceit in His mouth. (KJV)
9 And it appointeth with the wicked His grave, And with the rich are His high places, Because He hath done no violence, Nor is deceit in His mouth. (YLT)

Was Jesus buried in the grave of the wealthy? Did He spend the next three days languishing in the grave of a rich man?
57 ¶ When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple: He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered. And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed. (KJV)
57 ¶ And evening having come, there came a rich man, from Arimathea, named Joseph, who also himself was discipled to Jesus, he having gone near to Pilate, asked for himself the body of Jesus; then Pilate commanded the body to be given back. And having taken the body, Joseph wrapped it in clean linen, and laid it in his new tomb, that he hewed in the rock, and having rolled a great stone to the door of the tomb, he went away; (YLT)

Yes, Jesus is the Messiah! There can be no doubt about it. And He has very clearly told us that He will forgive all of our sins, if we will only do three things, one, accept Him as Lord and Saviour. Two, confess our sins and ask Him for forgiveness. And three, to confess that Jesus is Lord with your mouth. The other option is to stay the way you are and spend eternity in hell. For Jesus has told us in John 3 verses 1-18 that we are to either be Born Again or go to hell! No other choice, no purgatory or anything else, heaven and glory for ever or hell with it's pain, suffering, absolute darkness and horrors for all eternity.

Brothers and sisters, we are commanded to pray for our unsaved Jewish friends, relatives and even enemies, for it was the Jews that God choose to carry and protect His word throughout the times of pre Christ. But it is only those Jews tht come to Christ who will be spared the horrors of hell, so please join with me in prayer for them and all those who are lost.
Bob

The Lord Yeshua be with you, amen.

A servant of God and the Lord Jesus the Christ....

And so does James, the half brother of the Lord Jesus open his letter to the first century Jewish Christian church. Now while James was writing under the authority and as the pen of the Holy Spirt to the Messianic Jews of the time, what he writes in chapter four is even more valid today than it was then. Let us read it carefully together. But first, let us ask God for His help in understanding what we are about to read. Oh, Lord God in heaven above, Creator and Saviour of all things, please let the Holy Spirit be with us and guide us as we read Thy Holy Word. Help us to understand that which is written by the hand of your servant James. Amen.

James chapter four:
1 ¶ From whence come wars and fightings among you? Come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?

2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
(So, why do we have wars and fighting? We have it because man envies other men, man wants what others have, whether it is land, money, fame or women, men and women of the world are never satisfied with what they have, for they completely ignore both God and His Word. Exodus 20: 17 THOU SHALT NOT COVET THY NEIGHBOR'S HOUSE, THOU SHALT NOT COVET THY NEIGHBOR'S WIFE, NOR HIS MAN-SERVANT, NOR HIS MAID-SERVANT, NOR HIS OX, NOR HIS ASS, NOR ANYTHING THAT IS THY NEIGHBOR'S. For if you are a friend of the world, you will break God's laws in a show of support and devotion for the god whom you serve, the god of this world, satan. So you can only be the servant of one, satan or God. Matthew 6:24 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. Luke 16:13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.)

5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwells in us lust to envy? But He giveth more grace. Wherefore He saith, GOD RESISTETH THE PROUD, BUT GIVETH GRACE UNTO THE HUMBLE.
(So many today would have to say yes to James question, for many today preach and believe that much of God's word is null and void in this age, a perfect example would be the teachings that abortion and homosexuality are choices. Not in God's Word they aren't.)

7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift you up.
(Repent, repent and ask God's help in fighting the temptations of satan. Did Jesus not teach us to ask our heavenly Father for help in just that arena? Matthew 6:9 ¶ After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. The Lord knows that we are tempted, and that alone, we can not fight that temptation completely, oh we can fight the temptation to commit adultery with another woman, but can we fight the thoughts alone? Can we fight the temptation to visit the porno site on the web without His help? No in most cases we can't, so James tells us to go to the Lord humbly and ask His help, just as Jesus taught us to do in the Lord's prayer.)

11 ¶ Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaks evil of his brother, and judges his brother, speaks evil of the law, and judges the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. There is one lawgiver (JESUS), who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judges another?
Look, James knew that some are called by the Lord to do more and suffer more than others, and at times it is hard for those who are called to do more to not look at those who are called to do less without judging them and saying, "look at him he doesn't do anything but go to church on Sunday, ...". Even the Apostles of the Lord did the same thing, Peter wanted to know why he would suffer and die a painful death, while John didn't have to. Jesus's reply in John 21:22 Jesus saith unto Peter, If I will that John tarry till I come, what is that to thee? You just follow thou me. And as for our judging our fellow brothers and criticizing them for not having to do as much some others of us have to, well the Lord was pretty clear there too. For He tells us in Matthew 7: 1-5 ¶ Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye. Just accept your Christian brothers and sisters, for the Lord knows what He put them on earth to do, one time a woman got mad at me before accepting Christ and giving her life to Him, for the way I preached about the sin of aborting one's baby and the sin of abortion. Yet, when this same woman heard almost the identical thing from one who spoke softer and quieter, with more humility and understanding, she fell on her knees broke down and begged God to forgive her.

13 Go to now, ye that say, Today or to tomorrow we will go into such and such a city, and stay there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord wills, we shall live, and do this, or that. But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil. Therefore to him that knows how to do good, and does it not, to him it is sin.
(Jesus put it like this: Luke 12: 16-21 And Jesus spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. 20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.)

So, let us heed the writings of James, for as God spoke to the church in the first century, so does He today, by the same writings, only today, He would put them in bold print. The Lord Jesus the Christ be with you all, amen.

Oh ye pastors...

God Almighty above help ye pastors, for He has told us in His word that when you allow your flock to turn to the left, you will not be held unaccountable for that action when you stand before the Lamb.

Matthew 5:17-20
17. Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Who is the Lord talking to here? His disciples, His apostles, His followers, His preachers and pastors. Let's look at one part, Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven:

When you pastors let slide the difficult issues just to be liked, you are teaching men and women to do wrong by condoning with your silence their sin. Let's look at one tiny example if we may; the public schools. When you know parents in your congregation are simply using the public school system as a kiddie kennel, do you call those parents aside and warn them? Do you call them aside and tell them they are wrong? Do you remind them that those children are a gift from God, a gift that God has placed in their hands to teach, admonish and raise up in His ways, to feed and cherish, to keep healthy and provide shelter and safety for? Are you reminding moms that they should be prepared to give their lives for their kids? Are you teaching dads that they must stand between their wife, kids and all dangers from all directions? Are you teaching your flock that they have so little knowledge of God's Word that they treat the public school system as if it were a kennel for kids? A place to send the kids to get them out of their hair for a few hours or more? Oh, sure, God will hold those parents responsible, but He will also hold you responsible, for it is you He called to preach His word. Did Paul back off to be liked, did Peter, John or John the Baptist? Where in the Word of God do you see the verse that tells you that if His word will cut to deep, you should water it down, ignore it or trade it for some liberal theology or denominational horse dung? We rail against the public school system and the liberalism that has taken it over, yet we then tell our kids to go stand in line with the rest of the congregations kids waiting for the kiddie kennel bus. Does your wife, you and your congregation go back in the house, warm up the coffee, put your feet up and say "whew, a couple of hours of peace and quiet", after having sent the kids off on the bus to the kennel for kids?

Is their a girl in your congregation that is unmarried and pregnant? Where do you think she learned that behavior? Is their a kid on drugs? Are their children wearing mini skirts that are so short you can see their knees when they are standing? Where do you think they learned that behavior? Are there boys with earrings and spiked hair, black fingernails and blank stares sitting in your pews? Where do you think they learned that behavior? Are there children who are misbehaving in school? Why aren't the parents involved? Are you and your parents who use the public schools volunteering in the kids classes? Or are you and they using the time to earn extra money for the second car, the summer home or some other trivia? Are they using that time to eat chocolates and watch soap operas?

Because you as their pastor have dropped the ball that's why. Plain and simple, when the morals, virtues and parental responsibilities slip, it is the fault of he who was called by God to lead a flock, he who God called to pastor that flock. When the flock or even one in it turns from God's Word it is the fault of the pastor and the pastor will be held responsible, oh no, you won't go to hell, but you will be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: when a man in my congregation had a lesbian living in his home, I didn't condone it, I did sermon after sermon about the abomination called homosexuality, I told him on several occasions that I was worried about his living in that environment, I prayed for God's help daily concerning this lesbian and her influence on my brother my flock. And you know what, God came though, the lesbian is gone, is her soul? I don't know, but it is my flocks souls I have the most concern for, not those who have chosen a life style that God finds to be an abomination. I risked my brothers wrath and anger to preach God's Word to him concerning his living arrangements. He is still my brother, he is still in my congregation and we are closer now than ever before and the difference in his life since he kicked the homosexual woman out is remarkable, I can see the Lord working overtime in his life. I'm not bragging, I'm telling you this to let you know that I know it is hard, but as we learned in yesterdays thought, it is worth it to do God's will regardless. A pastor's responsibility is not only to preach, but to know his flock so well that he can turn to God Almighty above in prayer asking for His Devine intervention in the lives of the congregation. And that includes the attitude that the parents in the congregation have about the public schools and their responsibility towards the education of their children.

The Lord JESUS be with you all this day and dads remember this, you are charged with being the pastor of your home and family. And for heaven sakes, if you will not risk the chance of being liked a little less by preaching the hard facts of the Word of God to your congregation, bring in an evangelist that will once a month or so.

Amen.

Edification, food, living water.

God's Word, life ever get you down? Turn to God's Word, the Holy Bible and let the Creator help you though the day, the trial, the tribulation, the storm or the what have you. I get a lot of prayer requests, some are in great detail, others are but brief thumbnails of the problem, none go without a prayer. Not always for what has been asked, but always a prayer is said.

Often times, I would like to write back and suggest a certain passage or verse, but in most cases, I don't. That's a fault I need to work on. Today, let's look at a verse or two or three, ones that may help you understand how God's Word, the Holy Bible can help you through the day.

Matthew 8:28-31
28. And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding. So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.

Matthew 25: 40,41 &46
40. And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
46. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. Mark 1: 23-26

23. And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God. And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.

One last one and I'll get to the point.

Luke 8: 30&31
30. And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And the demons said, Legion: because many devils were entered into him. And they begged Jesus that He would not command them to go out into the deep, the abyss, hell.

The point of all of this is simple, when life becomes difficult. When it becomes difficult to follow the Lord and life in this world at the same time, when you find yourself torn between your Christian principals and the secular morales of the world, when you ask yourself, is it worth it? Think about the above verses, notice that those who have seen hell, the demons, beg not to go back there.

When the world starts to beat on you, when life gets you down. When work seems hard, when the kids won't stop, when the bills seem to large, whatever the obstacle, open your Bible and let your Creator, He who so loves you that He came to earth in the form of a man named Jesus, to shed His Blood so that you would have the way to spend eternity with Him and not in the abyss, the deep, hell.

May the Lord who so loves you that He shed His Blood for you bless you and keep you and help you through this day.
Amen.

May God Almighty rain His wrath on them!

Yesterday, the US House of Representatives voted, they voted to either support 11, 12 and 13 year old boys or those sick perverted sodomites that want to rape them. Unfortunately, not one hundred percent of the House voted to take the side of the boys, some voted to support the sodomites and their quest to get little 12 year old boys alone away from parents, friends and peers. To take these little boys into the woods and have their sick, un-Godly, perverted way with them.

May God Almighty, the Father, the Creator of all things do to them what He did to their ancestors in Sodom. May His full and unrestrained wrath fall upon their heads, may he blot them from all history and remembrance, may He avenge the boys whom they would abuse.

Here is a list of the congressman who voted to punish the Boy Scouts of America for their policy of not allowing homosexuals to take little boys camping overnight. The policy that continues to teach young boys that they should honor God, parents, family, and country. The policy that teaches young boys to do good, to live a clean and moral life and that there are rights and wrongs.

Voting to punish the BSA and support, encourage and legitimatize the sodomite:

Republican, Rep. James Greenwood of Pennsylvania,
Democrat, Rep. Lynn Woolsey, of California
Democrat, Rep Gary L. Ackerman 5th district of New York
Democrat, Alcee L.Hastings 23rd district of Florida
Democrat, Lucille Roybal-Allard 33rd district of California
Democrat, Danny K. Davis 7th district of Illinois
Democrat, Kennedy of Rhode Island
Democrat, Pete Stark 13th district of California
Democrat, Peter Deutsch 20th district of Florida
Democrat, Barbara Lee 9th district of California
Democrat, Robert Wexler 19th district of Florida
Democrat, Cybthia A. McKinney 4th Georgia

You'll note that even Democrats Barney Frank (Massachusetts) Tom Allen (Maine) And John Baldacci (Maine) three of the most outspoken pro sodomites in the US Congress did not vote for this horrendous insult to the American way of Life.

God is not silent on the behavior of sodomites, He tells us very clearly that they are scourge and plague upon the earth. He tells us that we are better off without them and not only tells us that we should purge society of them:

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

He has also shown us by example:

Genesis 19:24 &25
Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.

This bill had nothing to do with discrimination or tolerance, it had to do with protecting young boys, 11 and 12 years old from men who would prey on them, it had to do with teaching boys right from wrong. This bill was an out and out attempt by some in congress to totally undermine what is left of our moral fiber in this country. And they deserve God's wrath, but that is up to the Father, for our parts, we must pray for their salvation for if the Lord will but open their eyes, they too would see the horror that they had attempted to impose upon our children and our society.

Pray for the children of Democrat, Rep. Lynn Woolsey, of California for not only did she write this bill, she has a daughter and a son whom she claims were scouts. God help these children not follow in the way of their mother.

The Lord be with you all and may He rescue us as a nation form what has happened to us, may He open our eyes to the destruction we are working upon ourselves and may He do to the abortionist what the abortionist would do to the baby.

Amen.

Oh those poor scientists.

When I awoke this morning, as I was having a cup of coffee with my wife, the morning news came on. And lo and behold the lead story was about some scientist that found something at the bottom of the sea that has lead them to believe that maybe, just maybe there really was a flood. But true to their scientific gobbledygook science of evolution, they had to date this flood at 75,000 years ago.

Not long ago, I needed to see a doctor about my ear, the problem was that I was out of town and didn't know a Christian doctor in the area. So, I went to the emergency room, when this guy in white came in, I asked him what he thought of abortion. He told me it was a woman's right to choose. I got up to walk out. He asked me why I was leaving. I told him that if he was not smart enough after going to medical school to know that it was a baby in her womb, I didn't want him anywhere around my ear or for that matter any part of me.

Well, these scientists are the same, if they are so callous as to disregard God's Word and God's creation and instead hold fast to the theory of some maggot infested corpse, how can you believe anything they say? So, I disregarded the rest of the story.

For here is how God tells us the flood came about, why and when.

Genesis

CHAPTER 6

1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6 And it repented the LORD that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart.
7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth Me that I have made them.

8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.
10 And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.
15 And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.
16 A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.
17 And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.
18 But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee.
19 And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.
20 Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.
21 And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them.
22 Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.
In verse two, we see the reference to sons of God and daughters of men, this is referring to the children descended from Seth, the sons of God and the descendants of Cain, the daughters of men. God's people were intermarrying with satans followers. You may wish to read 2 Corinthians 6:14. In verse three, we see God saying that the long lives of men are about to end and after what is going to happen happens, men will no longer live eight and nine hundred years, but only up to 120 years. In verse 15, the measurement cubit is used, a cubit is 18 inches, a foot and a half in US measurements.

CHAPTER 7

1 And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before Me in this generation.
2 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.
3 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.

4 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.

5 And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him.
6 And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.
7 And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.
8 Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth,
9 There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.
10 And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.

11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.
13 In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark;
14 They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort.
15 And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh, wherein is the breath of life.
16 And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.

17 And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.
18 And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters.
19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.
20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.

21 And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:
22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.
23 And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.

24 And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.
In verse 6 we learn that the year is 1556 AC(after creation). In verses 17 - 20 we learn that the entire earth was covered, even over the tops of the mountains, yet in 20 we see that the depth was but 15 cubits, 22.5 feet. The earth was in great upheaval, all living life other than water dwellers were killed and mountains were formed, and as we see in verse 24, God did all this in only 150 days. God is not one to trifle with.

We are today in year 6319 AC according to God's Word the Holy Bible. The flood was in 1556 AC according to God's Word the Holy bible. So, the flood happened not 75,000 years ago as the creations following the maggot infested corpse of Darwin would try to convince you, the flood happened 4763 years ago, according to God's Word, the chronology of the Holy Bible.

You can not be a Born Again Christian and refuse to accept every word in the Word of God. If you are Born Again, you are going to spend all eternity with the Creator, you know that and you know that He is incapable of lying to us in His Word. Unbelievers are those who follow the dead maggot infested rotting corpse in the grave called Darwin, they are going straight to hell for all eternity. Do not for even one second think that they are capable of telling the truth, for they like clinton and satan take some truth and corrupt it with subtle by deadly lies.

The Lord Jesus be with you all.
Amen

Step one disarm the Christian...

Well, it seems that the politicians may have found a way to disarm or at least find out how Christians are armed so as to be able to disarm them at a later date. Why is that important to the politician?

Well it is becoming more and more obvious that those on all sides of the political spectrum, both democrats and republicans, have declared out and out war against the Born Again Christian community, those whom the Lord Jesus refers to as the church of Philadelphia. The so called conservative party, the republicans, while trying desperately to abandon any position favoring the life of the baby in the womb, has had no trouble embracing the homosexual, the socialist, the pro abortionist, the anti Christian, the feminist or any other group that shouts or spits in the face of God Almighty. But why you might ask is it so important for them to disarm the Christian community. They have learned their lessons well from their mentors Stalin and Hitler. They have learned how easy it is to do away with a group who is unarmed and unable to defend themselves. The problem they face is how. How can they disarm us? For our right to own and bear arms is protected and guaranteed by the Constitution. So, they will attempt to use the IRS. Makes sense, use an unconstitutional police agency to enforce and unconstitutional law.

For satan and his minions in public office can read the Scriptures too. As we learn from the Gospel of Matthew, satan, his minions, his ilk and those who serve him, are not only capable of reading God's Word, they have no problem trying to use it to serve their own ends.

Matthew 2: 1-16
1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

3 When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 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.

7 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, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.

13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.

14 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt: And was 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. Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.

Do you see how satan through Herod went to the Christ haters in religion and asked them for their help in finding the Christ? Do you see how the satan minions used that information to try and kill Jesus while He was still just a baby.

Why did satan use his minions Hitler and Stalin to kill so many jews? Again, the prince of this world can read Scripture, remember, he is a fallen angel, he was an arch angel, he has been around a long time.

Revelation 7: 4-8
4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.

Satan figured that if he used his two main minions, Hitler and Stalin, he could get rid of every jew in Europe and with them and his little jap buddies he could then kill all of the jews in the USA, but behold, the Lord once again outsmarted his wormy slithering little creation , by turning two of satans minions, Hitler and Stalin against one another. Causing his servant in the oval office no end of head aches.

But, what is satan reading now, what has he got in mind for his servants in the congress, senate, supreme court and oval office to do now?

Matthew 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for My name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for My name's sake.

Mark 13:13 And ye shall be hated of all men for My name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Luke 21:12 But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for My name's sake.
21:17 And ye shall be hated of all men for My name's sake.

John 15:21 But all these things will they do unto you for My name's sake, because they know not Him that sent Me.

But to persecute the church of Philadelphia in the USA is a bit more difficult, we can and will shoot back to protect our wives and children, our mothers and our fathers, our brothers and our sisters in Christ. And as we have learned from history, satans ilk, minions and servants are cowards, clinton sends his snipers, back shooting cowards out to kill for him, cowards. As Stalin had his secret police, so does clinton have his fbi, as Hitler had his gestapo, so does clinton have his batf. No, I don't think it will get through the senate this time, but it will only be a matter of time, for there is nothing a coward fears more than someone who can fight back.

The Lord Yeshua be with you all,
amen.

Gee, God never gives me a chance to witness.

So, you just hung up on the MCI operator, soliciting your business.
Do you ever get the feeling that God keeps you in a vacuum, that He never puts you anyplace you can witness? Do you lay awake at night crying out to the Lord asking for a chance to witness, but He never has you anywhere where the opportunity to witness comes up? But how can that be, for did not God Himself tell us to preach His Word to every creature?

Mark 6:15 And Jesus said unto His eleven Apostles, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

So, if the Lord has told us to go and preach His Word to ever creature, how can it be that He never puts you anywhere you can witness? Could it be that we are not looking carefully enough, for as we learn from Paul, everytime you bump into anyone it is an opportunity to witness, even when the times just doesn't seem quite right.

Acts 21:17- Chapter 22: 30
17 And when we were come to Jerusalem, the brethren received us gladly. And the day following Paul went in with us unto James; and all the elders were present. And when Paul had saluted them, he declared particularly what things God had wrought among the Gentiles by his ministry.

20. And when they heard it, they glorified the Lord, and said unto him, Thou seest, brother, how many thousands of Jews there are which believe; and they are all zealous of the law: And they are informed of thee, that thou teachest all the Jews which are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, saying that they ought not to circumcise their children, neither to walk after the customs. What is it therefore? the multitude must needs come together: for they will hear that thou art come. Do therefore this that we say to thee: We have four men which have a vow on them; Them take, and purify thyself with them, and be at charges with them, that they may shave their heads: and all may know that those things, whereof they were informed concerning thee, are nothing; but that thou thyself also walkest orderly, and keepest the law.

25 As touching the Gentiles which believe, we have written and concluded that they observe no such thing, save only that they keep themselves from things offered to idols, and from blood, and from strangled, and from fornication. Then Paul took the men, and the next day purifying himself with them entered into the temple, to signify the accomplishment of the days of purification, until that an offering should be offered for every one of them. Now when the seven days were almost ended, the Jews which were of Asia, when they saw him in the temple, stirred up all the people, and laid hands on Paul, crying out, Men of Israel, help: This is the man, that teacheth all men every where against the people, and the law, and this place: and further brought Greeks also into the temple, and hath polluted this holy place. (For they had seen before with him in the city Trophimus an Ephesian, whom they supposed that Paul had brought into the temple.)

30 And all the city was moved, and the people ran together: and they took Paul, and drew him out of the temple: and forthwith the doors were shut. And as they went about to kill him, tidings came unto the chief captain of the band, that all Jerusalem was in an uproar. Who immediately took soldiers and centurions, and ran down unto them: and when they saw the chief captain and the soldiers, they left beating of Paul. They were trying to beat Paul to death.

33 Then the chief captain came near, and took Paul, and commanded him to be bound with two chains; and demanded who he was, and what he had done. And some cried one thing, some another, among the multitude: and when he could not know the certainty for the tumult, he commanded him to be carried into the castle. And when Paul came upon the stairs, so it was, that he was borne of the soldiers for the violence of the people. For the multitude of the people followed after, crying, Away with him. Even now the jews were still trying to get Paul killed.

And as Paul was to be led into the castle, he said unto the chief captain, May I speak unto thee? The chief captain said, Canst thou speak Greek? Art not thou that Egyptian, which before these days madest an uproar, and leddest out into the wilderness four thousand men that were murderers? They, the jews must have really told some wild stories about Paul and made some outlandish accusations, for the chief captain seems to think that Paul is some Egyptian rabble-rouser.

39 Paul said, I am a man which am a Jew of Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city: and, I beseech thee, suffer me to speak unto the people. And when the chif captain had given him licence, Paul stood on the stairs, and beckoned with the hand unto the people. And when there was made a great silence, he spake unto them in the Hebrew tongue, saying,

22:1 ¶ Men, brethren, and fathers, hear ye my defence which I make now unto you. (And when they heard that he spake in the Hebrew tongue to them, they kept the more silence: and he saith,) I am verily a man which am a Jew, born in Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, yet brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, and taught according to the perfect manner of the law of the fathers, and was zealous toward God, as ye all are this day. And I persecuted the followers of Jesus unto the death, binding and delivering into prisons both men and women.

5 As also the high priest doth bear me witness, and all the estate of the elders: from whom also I received letters unto the brethren, and went to Damascus, to bring them which were there bound unto Jerusalem, for to be punished. And it came to pass, that, as I made my journey, and was come nigh unto Damascus about noon, suddenly there shone from heaven a great light round about me. And I fell unto the ground, and heard a voice saying unto me, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And I answered, Who art thou, Lord? And He said unto me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest.

9 And they that were with me saw indeed the light, and were afraid; but they heard not the voice of him that spake to me. And I said, What shall I do, Lord? And the Lord said unto me, Arise, and go into Damascus; and there it shall be told thee of all things which are appointed for thee to do.

11 And when I could not see for the glory of that light, being led by the hand of them that were with me, I came into Damascus. And one Ananias, a devout man according to the law, having a good report of all the Jews which dwelt there, came unto me, and stood, and said unto me, Brother Saul, receive thy sight. And the same hour I looked up upon him. And he said, The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth. For thou shalt be his witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard. And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.

17 And it came to pass, that, when I was come again to Jerusalem, even while I prayed in the temple, I was in a trance; And saw Jesus saying unto me, Make haste, and get thee quickly out of Jerusalem: for they will not receive thy testimony concerning me. And I said, Lord, they know that I imprisoned and beat in every synagogue them that believed on Thee: And when the blood of thy martyr Stephen was shed, I also was standing by, and consenting unto his death, and kept the raiment of them that slew him. And He said unto me, Depart: for I will send thee far hence unto the Gentiles

When the chief captain and his guard took Paul and Paul asked to speak, most would have said, take me to a hospital, I have been beaten so badly I can not even walk. But not Paul, He immediately called those who had beat him and started witnessing to them.

So, when you think you have no one to witness to, that you want God to arrange an opportunity for you to witness, perhaps you'd best remember how the Lord arranged times for Paul to witness, perhaps it's better to just witness to every one whose path you cross. Or I guess you could continue to wait and after the folks beat you to a pulp and the cops have you in handcuffs, but before you let them take you to the hospital, you could then witness to the ones who just got through pounding on you.

And Steve, never ever pass up the chance to witness when you get a call from a telemarketer. Get right into the Gospel of John, 3:1-18. When a salesman calls at your home, invite him in and witness, he is in your home, the telemarketer is in your home, God has brought them to you, tell them about Him.

The Lord Jesus be with you all,
Amen

Pope goes back to old line.

As if statue idolatry isn't enough, the pope is back again telling the world that unless they accept him as the one and only way to Christ, they are lacking. And on one small part of his foolish, juvenile ranting and raving I agree, if a man does not accept him, the pope, as the only way to the Christ, he is lacking, he is lacking in common sense and knowledge of the Word of God, for to worship the pope a little or a lot is the worshiping of a false god.

The catholic church builds this pile of deciept based upon one tiny piece of Scripture taken completely out of context and by misunderstanding, misinterpreting or out and out misrepresenting the meaning of one small but very important greek word. In other words they are either ignorant, misinformed or out and out lying. I tend to go with the third. And today we are going to look at that word.

These popes and priest of the roman catholic church are leading an awful lot of folks straight to hell with their false doctrines.

In Matthew 16:18, Jesus said: And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

The roman catholic church claims that the popes are the direct descendants of Peter and that what Jesus was saying here is that upon Peter He would build His church, that Peter would be the head of the church, the king so to speak. But there are some very serious flaws with that line. First and foremost is that the greek word used for rock here, is petra, a greek word meaning stone.

For the passage is spoken of again in John 1:42 And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, He said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone. (And Andrew brought Peter to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld Peter, Jesus said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.) The greek word here is petros or a small stone.

Now the rc claims to tie this in by comparing it to a description of Jesus in the book of Daniel.
Daniel 2:34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

Daniel 2:35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

Daniel 2:45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

The description in Daniel is of a stone that is bigger than any mountain for it is the stone that covers the entire earth. Not a little stone, a petra or a petros, but a huge mountain of a stone. Additionally, the history of the last two thousand years very clearly tells how the catholic church came about and how the first pope Constitine became pope, it had nothing to do with Peter, nothing to do with serving God, it was for power plain and simple.

The Lord Jesus be with you all,
amen.

Could it be today?

I am always at a loss as to understand why people put off reaching out to the Lord and accepting His free gift of salvation. A quick glance at the news will confirm that there are no guarantees that anyone will live past the middle of the next breath, but still folks procrastinate. I thank God that those of you who are Saved and I are not among the great numbers of procrastinators.

John prays at the end of Revelation for Jesus to come quickly. Jesus tells us that no man knows the exact hour or day.

Revelation 22: 20 &21
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

The Apostles asked the Lord:
Matthew 24:3
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?

And Jesus answered them by saying:
Matthew 23: 36
But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but My Father only.

Could it be today? Tomorrow? Soon? Well, let me answer that by asking you a question? One of the things the Lord said had to be done first is found in Matthew 24:14.
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. Well, can you think of anywhere on earth where the Gospel of the Lord Jesus has not been taught? Thanks to men like Dr. Livinston the Bible has reached deepest darkest Africa. And thanks be to God for men like Lt. John Birch, US Army , the Gospel of God has been well introduced into communist China.

So, why do people wait? What are they waiting for? I don't know, I only know that we must include them in our prayers, for hell is dark lonely and miserable and it is for all eternity.

The Lord Jesus be with you all and may He help those who are our kin and friends who are unsaved to find His truth and become Born Again and acceptable in His eyes.

No bad comes from God!

Have you ever wondered why God tempts you with things like lust? Well, if you have, let's look at what James says about just that subject. I really like and admire James. James was the half brother of the Lord, his father was Joseph the carpenter, but his mom was Mary, the mother of Jesus. But James didn't go around yelling "Hey Jesus was my brother, so listen to me". No instead, he introduced himself like this. " James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,"

James 1:12-18
12. Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love Him.

13. Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
Let no man say when he is tempted that that temptation came from God, for God can neither be tempted by evil or use evil to tempt you. But man causes the temptation himself by putting himself in places where he can be tempted to satisfy his own lust or his lust causes him to look or do something that inflames that lust adding to his temptation. When he succumbs to his lust, further sin and temptation arise. And sin is the cause of men going to hell.

16. Do not err, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures.
God's gifts are not temptation, but good and perfect gifts. Don't blame God for your temptations and lust, turn to him and ask His help controlling lust and temptation. For we should not be back alley lust seekers, but a kind of first fruits to the Lord something for Him to be proud of. Make your Creator proud, turn to Him and avoid sin.

No, God doesn't tempt you with sins of the flesh or lust, you and satan does. First you look and then satan goes to work on you. How are you to avoid these sins? Pray. Simply pray and do not put yourself in positions where you can be tempted.

The Lord Jesus, the Christ bless you all.
Amen.

It's not just lust guys, it can be hate, or the desire to want to punch someone out or even call them and rip into them on the phone. If it's bad it comes from the father of all bad things, satan. Only prayer and determination will rescue you.

An insult that is a Christians best compliment?

When they hurl an insult, can it be a compliment? Could it be that when a heathen hurls what he or she thinks is the ultimate insult it is in fact the greatest compliment an unsaved heathen could pay a Christian? Stop reading and think about it for a minute. Could what a heathen thinks is the worst thing she or he could say to you actually be the highest of compliments? He or she would mean it to hurt, to cut, to cause you to cry. To hurt you more than anything else, but it is in fact the highest compliment a non believer, a heathen, one bond for hell unless he or she changes could possibly pay a Born Again Believer, a Child of God, an adopted son or daughter of the Lord Christ Jesus.

Confused? Maybe a bit of Scripture will help.

First hint:

John 15: 18-25

18. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated Me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

20. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept My saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for My name's sake, because they know not Him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin. 23. He that hateth Me hateth my Father also. If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both Me and My Father. But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, THEY HATED ME WITHOUT A CAUSE (Psalm 35:19 and Psalm 69:4).

The world hated Jesus, the so called religious experts condemned Him to death on the cross, they spit at Him, cursed Him and railed on Him as He hung on the cross, the perfect sacrifice for you and me.

Hint two:

Mark 3: 22-30

22. And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, Jesus hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth He out devils.

23. And Jesus called them unto Him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.

27. No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house. 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: Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.

Are you starting to see the point? Say a heathen or a liberal social club small c christian spits in your face, yells at you that you are not a Christian and even accuses you of being the devil. I will absolutely guarantee you that they are doing these things to hurt you, they know your faith, they know your dedication to the Messiah. They intend to hurt you, to cut you deeper than any sword could by hurling what they think is the most painful insult they could at you. They yell, "You are not a Christian, you are the devil!"

But did not the scribes, pharisees and sadducees do the same to Jesus, did they not try to hurt Him? Did they not spit at Him, yell at Him and call Him satan? But look at what the Lord has told us; "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated Me before it hated you." and "Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you;" yes, first the world hated the Lord and to be hated by the world is proof that you are not of the world, but of God. It is also proof that the one hurling the insults is not of God, but of the world. Now think about this, even though they meant for the insult to hurt, it didn't because you have now been treated as the lord told you His would be treated. So, actually that person really complimented you, but that person is on his or her way to hell if they should die this very instant. Shouldn't you be praying for him or her? Did what they do cause them to deserve hell? Well it will, if you do not pray for them, for you are the temple of the Holy Spirt, the holy Spirit abides within you and Jesus did say: "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: Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit."

Pray for the heathen who tries to insult you for remember, their insult also blasphemed the Holy Spirt of whom you are His temple. For if you don't pray for that hateful sick condemned person, who will? And Jesus has told 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;

Luke 6:28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.

Now if you're telling yourself that it is hard to pray for those who "despitefully use you", well the Lord seemed to anticipate that so He added this through the writings of Paul to the Romans:
Romans 12:20 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.
So, let's pray for our enemies, pray for those who try to hurt you, heap those burning coals upon their heads.

The Lord Jesus, the Messiah, the Christ be with you and bless you all and if you haven't found a school to volunteer in yet, let's get hopping guys.

God bless you all,

Amen.

Can a Born Again Believer be anti Semitic?

The answer is really both quite simple and complex at the same time, but the answer is an emphatic NO! No my brothers and sisters, a Born Again Christian cannot hate the Hebrews. Those who claim to be Christians, yet harbor a hatred for the jew are lying to themselves, to God and to anyone they speak to on the subject.

The simple art of the answer comes from your heart, how could you hate the people of David, Daniel, Moses, Jonah and the mother of the Lord Jesus Himself? You can't. God picked, refined, tested and proved the Hebrews to be His people to have the Bible given to and entrusted them to carry it and preserve it, so how could we hate their lost ancestors? We can't.

But there also is a very solid bit of Scripture that makes the Hebrew the target of satan's hate and the subject of a true believers prayers, love and protection.

Let us pray, Oh Lord God in heaven above, creator of all things, we come to you in prayer, asking you to help us to understand Your word that we are about to read, in Jesus precious name we pray to the Father, amen.

OK, let's look at the book of Revelation, starting in chapter six, verse 9 and through chapter seven verse eight.
9. And when He had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
10. And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
11. And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
12. And I beheld when He had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
13. And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
14. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
15. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
16. And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
17. For the great day of ?His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Chapter seven:
1. And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
2. And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
3. Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
4. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
5. Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.
6. Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.
7. Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.
8. Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.

Notice carefully verses 4-8 of chapter 7. Here we learn that after rapture, during the time of tribulation, there will be 144,000 disciples coming from the Hebrew people, these 144,000 are to be witnesses to the world about Jesus. Before we discuss these 144,000, let's see a bit more about them. Turn to Revelation chapter 14 and read:
1. And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with Him an hundred forty and four thousand, having His Father's name written in their foreheads.
2. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:
3. And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.
4. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the first fruits unto God and to the Lamb.
5. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

6. And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
7. Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
Now read verses 4 and 5 very carefully and you will notice that these 144,000 are men who are not only virgins, but have no lies or deceit about them.

Think about something, at the moment of rapture, all the little kids are gone, some think the age is 12, others, 14, some 16, 18 or even 21. But, let us for a moment take the younger age, 12. So, all the kids in the world 12 and under are out of here, they have joined with the Born Again believers and been taken out of here at the moment of the Lord's shout. Keep in mind, these 144,000 are virgin men who are Hebrews. So, the only youngsters left are 13 and over. None of the 144,000 are married, they would no longer be virgins, these are young men who for the most part are probably between 13 at the youngest and maybe 23 or 24. 144,000 young Hebrew men 12,000 from each of the 12 tribes who have never cursed, lied, or had any kind of sexual intimate contact with a girl or woman.

Satan wishes to destroy the Hebrews so as to hamper God's Word in God's own book, we can not join him in anything he does and it is he that hates the Jew. We on the other hand must realize two things. One: In order to have a 144,000 male virgins between 13 and 24 years old, you need a lot more than the current 7 or 8 million jews on earth. The other thing we must realize is this. Even if satan nuked Israel and the US, the two major concentrations of the Jews, the two areas where over 90% of the Jews world wide reside, that will not hamper our God, for our God is the Creator. AND:

In Luke 19:40 And He answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.

Luke 3:8
Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

Matthew 3:9
And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

So, you see, the work of the Jew is not over yet, it was finished at the time the Lord came to earth in the form of a man called Jesus, there is still work aplenty for the Jew, but not just any Jews, this time it is 12,000 from each of the 12 tribes for a total of 144,000 male virgins who have neither lied nor deceived anyone. You want the Lord Jesus to come back and rapture His church? Are you tired of the likes of clinton, snowe, reno and the rest of the satan worshiping baby killing scum that occupies our highest offices? Then pray that the Jew be multiplied, pray for the safety and peace for the Jew, and for all Israel, not the Israel of the UN, but the Israel as given to the Jews by God Almighty Himself.

Let us through our prayers help save the Lord God Almighty the work of raising up any of the 144,000 from the rocks and stones, for while it would be easy enough for Him to do, it would mean that we dropped the ball and God had to do it all Himself again. Let us be faithful servants of the lord and help Him by praying to Him and asking Him to restore the Jews to numbers sufficient to have 144,000 male virgins in whom there is found no guile or deceit.

Does that mean that Born Again Christians are duty bound to vote for Senator Joseph Lieberman? God forbid! For Lieberman is no more an orthodox jew than Adolph Hitler was! For what Hitler allowed to be done to the jews, gypsy's and Christians in his prisons, Lieberman has quadrupled with his constant support for the murder of the baby in the womb. The position of orthodox Jews on abortion is that it is the taking of a human life and that it can only be done to save the life of the mother. The Gore - Lieberman ticket is more reminiscent of a Stalin - Hitler ticket than anything that should be presented to the US voter. For, as not all who claim to be Christians are, so is with jews as well, not all that claim to be jews are. And anyone voting to leave the Israel hating president in office, can not be a child of Abraham.

For look at what Jesus said:

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 Jesus bless you all and may you all keep each other in your prayers, pray for the peace and restoration of the Jerusalem and the Jew and for the safety and love of one another.

For the sooner Jesus calls us, the sooner we live in the perfect theocracy. God be with and bless you all and it is good to be back and I thank you for all your prayers. Amen

Friday September 1st, 2000 AD

Ah the sound of school bells.

Well, it is the first of September, some have gone back to school, others are starting today and the rest will be returning to the classroom shortly. And I am back from both vacation and our trip to Kentucky. PRAISE GOD!

While the company and fellowship were wonderful, this was one of the toughest trips we have ever made. Satan worked overtime trying to thwart God's work. But, praise God, satan lost and God opened a ton of opportunities for us to witness to some who were unsaved and give reassurances and encouragement to a couple of good Born Again believers.

Now, let's think about the schools, and especially the students within those walls. Almost 40 years ago, in 1963, the US Supreme Court evicted the Lord Jesus, God the Father and the Holy Spirit from the public school. Satan immediately filled the vacuum. You and your prayers can change this. If you are here as a visitor, this next is a request, but if you are one who calls me pastor and attends this internet church on a regular basis, this is instruction. If you have a day off in the middle of the week or if you are retired, I want you to go and volunteer to spend half a day in the nearest public school to you. I don't care what you volunteer to do, sweeping the floors is fine. For what you are there to do is pray. Pray, Pray and Pray some more. You are there to pray for the school, the teachers, the administrators and most of all the kids. You are there to spend two or more hours in prayer asking the Lord to intervene and help those kids in that school.

Look, if you are a Born Again believer and I can think of few reasons why a non believer would attend this church, but if you are a Born Again believer, then you know that God hears and answers your prayers. The chances are great that the majority of the kids in the school have parents who are not Saved and are praying, if they pray at a all, to statues or worse. God does not hear the prayer of the heathen , the unsaved, except when that person is praying the sinner's prayer, but those kids deserve to have someone go to Jesus and ask His intervention on their behalf. And if you don't do it, who will?

So, if you are a regular attendee of this church, have a day off in the week, or are retired and are Born Again, I am telling you as your pastor to go volunteer at a local public school and pray for two hours in that school for the Lord to come and abide within that building with His presence to protect and influence those kids.

May the Lord Jesus bless and convict you, for if you are but a couch Christian, you need to get off your duff and follow the very words of the Saviour:

Mark 16:14-16
Afterward Jesus appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen Him after He was risen. And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Matthew 28: 18-20

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Get crackin' my brothers and sisters, let us not let satan have control of the schools when all we have to do is trust in the Lord by going and praying to the Father in His name for the souls of those kids, teachers, custodians, secretaries and other staff.

The Lord my God Jesus be with you all, amen.

A thought for thirty days.

As we prepare for our annual prison ministry, I am always faced with the dilemma of leaving a thought that will provoke and cause you and I to think about the Lord for the next thirty days. For while I am gone, we should not take a vacation from the Word of God.

Praise God, a brother in the Lord, posted the below on Freerepublic and was kind enough through Lev, to let me post it.

I believe that if you will take a chapter per day, you'll have plenty to study over the next thirty days, I would ask for your prayers for myself, my wife, our ministry and Cecily's great niece Melissa, who will be traveling with us.

Any reasonable person who examines these Old Testament prophecies in an objective manner must conclude that Jesus was the promised Messiah. "If these messianic prophecies were written hundreds of years before they occurred, and if they could never have been foreseen and depended upon factors outside human control for their fulfillment, and if all of these prophecies perfectly fit the person and life of Jesus Christ, then Jesus had to be the Messiah." Brothers and sisters, jews and muslims, is this not proof that Jesus is the Messiah?

The Lord JESUS be with you all over the next thirty days, may He bless you and yours and pray daily for you to the Father over the next month.

In the name of Yeshua I pray to Yahweh, amen.

See you all in thirty days or around the 20th of August 2000.

Daily Christian thought

Tuesday July 17th, 2000

Stop, Look, Listen!

Today's thought is for those few dads and moms who are Born Again believers only. Today's daily Christian thought is for Born Again fundamental Christians only.

My dear fellow believers, before you read to days thought, I want you to go together to the local shopping mall, I don't want you to bring the kids, I want you to go just the two of you together. Ask another believer to care for the kids for a couple or three hours while your gone, ask that believer to pray for the two of you while you're gone, for what you will be looking for is sin.

I want you to go to the mall, find a seat, sit down and watch the flood of humanity that passes by, but this time, I want you to look for the obvious heathens, I want you to look at the young women with tattoos, strange body peircings and large areas of what should be clothed flesh, exposed. I want you to look for young men with body pierced eye brows, ears, noses and other body parts, boys with weird dyed hair and tattoos. I want you to see them, watch them, observe them and listen to their talk. And then i want you to ask yourself this question; "Could this happen to our children at home?".

The answer is yes, it could. And yes it may unless you intervene immediately and constantly from this second forward, for it is never to late to start. Read with me:

Ephesians 5: 21-24
21 ¶ Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
Do you think that means that only Christian wives will be submitting to their God fearing Christian husbands? Remember the pitiful heathen girls you saw at the mall? Remember the males they were with? Read with me:

Genesis 24: 62-67
62 ¶ And Isaac came from the way of the well Lahairoi; for he dwelt in the south country.

63 And Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide: and he lifted up his eyes, and saw, and, behold, the camels were coming. 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. And the servant told Isaac all things that he had done.

67 And Isaac brought her 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.

Read verse 67 again, Isaac took Rebecca into his mothers tent, there he made love to her, he entered into her and she became his wife...

So, when a girl gives her virginity or herself to a man, she is married to that man in the eyes of God and by God's own definition in God's own handbook for humans.

Genesis 3:13-16
13 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

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: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise His heel.

16 ¶ Unto the woman 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.

Now, read verse 16 very carefully, do you see where God has made wives subject to their husbands? Do you see that God has placed in women a desire to serve their husbands? And that is why those girls, miserable as they are do whatever their husbands, shackups, one night stands, boyfriends or whatever you want to call them, tell them to do. Even when that means marking their bodies or even worse.

What about your sons? Can they become like those heathen drugged up boys with the green hair spiked with grease or however to hold it up, or shaved heads with tattoos on them, like those heathens with their bodies pierced in strange and hideous places, walking through the mall with clothes that should be outlawed by any decent society? Can your sons be like them?

YES, they can! Read with me:

Exodus 34:16
And thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after their gods.

You let your sons hang around with heathen girls and they will follow them like deer rutting in the fall! For God clearly tells us to protect our sons from girls who worship strange gods, for they will lead our sons to follow them and serve their gods.

So, what are parents to do:

First and foremost, pray for your children, your spouse and yourself daily then pray for the one the Lord has chosen to marry your sons and daughters. And then separate yourself and your families from the heathens! Fathers, you are not your sons best friends, you are their fathers! You are the protector of your daughters virginity. Mothers you are no less, you are the first line of defense, for you are home or at least should be. You must home school! You must raise your sons and daughters to love and fear the Lord and His word above all things.

May the Lord Yeshua bless you and guide you, may He be with you and your families, may he bless and protect your children to the exclusion of all other things. May He assign angels with flaming swords to guard you and your families as long as you serve Him. And may He protect and be with my wife, I and our grand niece as we travel over the next month or so.

Amen.

And John wrote as Jesus spoke:

1 ¶ And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying,

Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new.
And He said unto me,
Write: for these words are true and faithful. And Jesus said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be My son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Revelation 21:1-8

What a wonderful day that will be, tribulation will be over, the saints will be in heaven with the Lord and those who are destined for hell will be judged by Him who knows all things. But let us take a moment to look at one group that while they say "Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name?" Will be judged guilty and condemned to the lake of fire for all eternity. This is a group who have built their church upon a lie, the lie that the Lord Jesus made Peter the first pope and said that He, the Lord Himself was building His church on Peter and not on Himself.

Let us look at the end of verse eight again. ....and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. The Roman Catholic church is built upon a lie, the lie mentioned above plus any number of others, but even worse, if there is a worse is their open and constant idiolatry.

They have filled their churches with statues and idols, they have patron saints for everything from driving a car to getting pregnant, worse still is tie insistence of the priest, bishops cardinals and pope that Catholics pray to these statues and ask their patron saints to intervene for them with God Almighty. Let us look at what the Lord Jesus the Christ taught us of such people.

Matthew 7:15-20
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

17 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.

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Does your church tell you to pray to idols? Do you know what an idol is? God tells us exactly what He considers idols and what He considers idols, you should know are idols.

Exodus 20: 3-5
3. Thou shalt have no other gods before me!

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

Now, Mr or Mrs Roman Catholic, you tell me how those statues of saints you pray to are not idols by God definition. And look at the results of your praying to them at the end of verse 5. You are in essence cursing your children for when you worship idols, God considers that telling Him that you hate Him.

Let us go back to Matthew seven and see what your priest, bishops, cardinals and pope can expect to hear when they stand before God.

Matthew 7:21-23
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? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

If you follow that priest, bishop, cardinal or pope, you can expect to hear the very same words proceed out of the Lord's mouth when you stand before Him, why? Because you have listened to idol worshipers instead of listening to God Almighty!

For those of us who are Born Again and hold fast to the Words of the Lord, we will have our tears dried away, we will have no more pain, suffering or sorrow, but for those who choose to follow the worshipers of idols, they can expect to spend eternity in tears, sorrow, pain and suffering.

Pray for Catholics, Jews and the members of the 20th and 21st century church of Laodicea, pray that the Spirit will open their eyes, but thank God that their choose is theirs and will not alter our happiness throughout eternity by one little iota.

May the Lord thy God Yeshua be with you and yours this entire week, may He guide and protect you and yours, may He keep you and yours safe and shelter you from all storms.
Amen.

Yes,

there is a major difference between Senator Olympia Snowe, Republican US Senator from Maine and even the common street prostitute of today.

In Tuesday's thought, I made this statement,
"My brothers and sisters, I would tell you it is better that your daughters learn character, honesty and integrity from Rahab then from Snowe, Collins, Clinton and Ginsberg. Do you think Rahab would have killed her babies while they were within her womb? Some day perhaps, I'll publish insurance documents about Snowe and Collins, Hillary and Ginsberg. Do you think for even one micro second that Rahab would have slept with another woman as she would sleep with a man? What about Snowe and Collins? Trust me, it is better your daughters should learn from Rahab then Snowe, Reno, Collins, Hillary, Ginsberg et el."

This resulted in my receiving this email, read it and think about the type of people we have representing us in Washington and within the halls of government on the state and local level as well. And then ask yourself this question, given the same set of circumstances, what do you think Senator Olympia Snowe would have done to Mac?

Pastor Bob,

Should be no secret that I am your proofreader by now. I read every word of every Daily Thought that is posted to the Church for the American Christian who is a Patriot web page. Most days, I regard it as my duty to the church and use it as my daily Bible reading and lesson.

Your thought for Tuesday July 11, 2000 got me to thinking about a personal encounter with some women who were like Rahab people of honor despite their chosen station in life. Thought I'd pass along this personal reflection. You have my full permission to use it as you will or not.

May God Bless and Guide you

The Tale of the Honest Whore

To tell this tale, I need to crank up the time machine and return to the winter of 1973. The Place Camp Humphries, Pyeongteak, Korea. At that time I was on active duty with the United States Army and serving my second tour in Korea unaccompanied by my family.

Its no secret that prostitution was legal in Korea at that time and there were portions of each village outside the gate of a military installation devoted to "entertaining" US service men and women while separating them from their paychecks. All of the village bars had their complements of willing women ready and willing to sell their charms.

All of the bars had different themes. Some played music oriented to attract black soldiers, some played rock and roll. There was almost nothing to do on post so most soldiers chose to go to the "ville" for entertainment.

I was no different. The bar that I frequented was on the second floor of the Seoul Hall Hotel and played mostly Country and Western music and some golden oldies. While I did not go there every night I went quite frequently. Invariably, I would get propositioned by one of the "working girls" usually a line to effect "hey GI you want a good time?" My answer was always to hold up my left hand pressing on my wedding band with my thumb so it would stand out and say no thank you.

That usually produced some sort of an outburst about how she was only trying to make a living and support her family. Normally I would listen patiently and offer to buy her a cup of coffee or a coke (the girls got a cut for each) and then just sit and listen to the music making small talk with the girl.

As things happen, about mid winter I caught a really bad case of the Flu and was in bed for three days. Come Saturday night I really felt a lot better and decided to hit town and go to the Country Western bar.

A short walk and up the stairs and to my usual seat at the bar. A few words of greeting with the bartender and I settled in for a couple of hours of relaxation. All of a sudden I had a hot flash and felt extremely dizzy. That is all I remember. I woke up in a back room of the hotel with one of the working girls swabbing my forehead with a cool towel. I asked her what was going on and she said "you passed out in the bar and we brought you here so the Military Police would not get you. Mama San (the madam) check you out and you really big sick . Hot in the head." (Meaning that I had a high temperature.)

About then I realized that I was on a futon bead under a heavy quilt and my clothes were gone. I asked where my clothes were because I needed to get back to post. I was told that Mama San had taken them so I could not leave because in her words I was "taksan (very) sick."

I protested and Mama San was summoned I was told in no uncertain terms that I was too sick to go out on a cold night and she would not let me leave. At that point it was moot because I was too weak to even sit up so I gave in.

In a little while the door slid open and there stood a little old man who looked older than dirt and was wearing traditional male Korean clothing. He was accompanied by a youngster carrying a large wooden box that turned out to have what seemed to be literally hundreds of small drawers in it.

He came over to the bed and began to examine me. After my first weak protests I realized that he was some sort of a doctor and knew what he was doing so I just let him do his thing.

After taking my temperature with a modern thermometer and listening to my chest with a modern stethoscope, He gave a gruff order to the kid with the box and a small brasier was lit and a brass teapot with water was put over to boil. As the water boiled he added various powders to it. After a period of time he poured the contents of the teapot into a coffee cup and made me understand that I was to drink it.

It smelled terrible and I refused. At that point he called out and Mama San entered and really tore into me explaining that it was medicine and I was going to drink it or wear it. At this point she came over to the bed and grabbed my jaw with one hand and pinched my nose shut with one hand and with the other forced open my mouth and began to pour. No choice - I drank it.

After that he packed up his things and had a long talk with Mama San in Korean that I couldn't follow at all. He then left. Mama San then told that the medicine would make me sleep so not to fight it. She told me that someone would sit with me through the evening. What could I do? I just let go and fell asleep.

When I awakened in the morning I felt a thousand percent better and ready to take on the world. As soon as it was evident that I was awake the young lady that was beside the bed called Mama San who came in immediately. I asked for my clothes and was told that I could not have them yet as the "doctor" had ordered that I was to take a steam bath when I awoke .

She then produced a robe and pair of thongs and I was taken to the Korean style bath facility in the hotel. Where I took the bath as directed. While there, a barber was called who trimmed my hair and shaved me. At that point Mama San appeared with my uniform and boots. Everything had been washed and pressed to include a spitshine on the boots. She then told me to get dressed.

After dressing I pulled out my wallet and was surprised to find that all of my money was still there. I thanked Mama San profusely and asked her how much I owed her. Her response floored me. "Your money is no good. You come in here all the time you never take girls to hooch. You married and not cheat on wife. You always kind to girls and buy coffee or coke. You never fool around and act like gentleman. Your money is no good." I tried to protest as I knew that the herb doctor alone had been expensive. The response was "Go home now"

I had been completely helpless and at the mercy of anyone that came near me. Those Whores and their Madam had responded to my simple act of fidelity to my wife and the way I treated them as human being beings.

Sometimes it takes a real body slam to really understand the golden rule "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

May the Lord Jesus bless you and yours this coming week and through the times to come, In the name of Yeshua, amen!

Yes, God can use the heathen to do His will against their god.

Well, today we enter day five of our study of the book of Joshua, are you starting to wonder where you would have fallen? Are you starting to see the faith Joshua and the Israelites had 3400 years ago? Are you starting to see how much better off Israel would be today if the had a Joshua to follow rather than pinning their hopes upon Barak and Clinton?

Chapter four:
1. And it came to pass, when all the people had completely crossed over the Jordan, that the LORD spoke to Joshua, saying:
2. "Take for yourselves twelve men from the people, one man from every tribe, "and command them, saying, 'Take for yourselves twelve stones from here, out of the midst of the Jordan, from the place where the priests' feet stood firm. You shall carry them over with you and leave them in the lodging place where you lodge tonight.'"

4. Then Joshua called the twelve men whom he had appointed from the children of Israel, one man from every tribe; and Joshua said to them: "Cross over before the ark of the LORD your God into the midst of the Jordan, and each one of you take up a stone on his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel, that this may be a sign among you when your children ask in time to come, saying, 'What do these stones mean to you?' Then you shall answer them that the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD; when it crossed over the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. And these stones shall be for a memorial to the children of Israel forever."

8. And the children of Israel did so, just as Joshua commanded, and took up twelve stones from the midst of the Jordan, as the LORD had spoken to Joshua, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel, and carried them over with them to the place where they lodged, and laid them down there. Then Joshua set up the twelve stones in the midst of the Jordan, in the place where the feet of the priests who bore the ark of the covenant stood; and they are there to this day.

10. So the priests who bore the ark stood in the midst of the Jordan until everything was finished that the LORD had commanded Joshua to speak to the people, according to all that Moses had commanded Joshua; and the people hurried and crossed over. Then it came to pass, when all the people had completely crossed over, that the ark of the LORD and the priests crossed over in the presence of the people. And the men of Reuben, the men of Gad, and half the tribe of Manasseh crossed over armed before the children of Israel, as Moses had spoken to them. About forty thousand prepared for war crossed over before the LORD for battle, to the plains of Jericho.

14. On that day the LORD exalted Joshua in the sight of all Israel; and they feared him, as they had feared Moses, all the days of his life.

Then the LORD spoke to Joshua, saying,
16. "Command the priests who bear the ark of the Testimony to come up from the Jordan." Joshua therefore commanded the priests, saying, "Come up from the Jordan."

18. And it came to pass, when the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD had come from the midst of the Jordan, and the soles of the priests' feet touched the dry land, that the waters of the Jordan returned to their place and overflowed all its banks as before.

19. Now the people came up from the Jordan on the tenth day of the first month, and they camped in Gilgal on the east border of Jericho.

20. And those twelve stones which they took out of the Jordan, Joshua set up in Gilgal. Then Joshua spoke to the children of Israel, saying: "When your children ask their fathers in time to come, saying, 'What are these stones?' then you shall let your children know, saying, 'Israel crossed over this Jordan on dry land'; for the LORD your God dried up the waters of the Jordan before you until you had crossed over, as the LORD your God did to the Red Sea, which He dried up before us until we had crossed over, that all the peoples of the earth may know the hand of the LORD, that it is mighty, that you may fear the LORD your God forever."

In Monday's thought, I asked this question:
If the Lord came to you by night and said:
"Wake up, gird thyself and cover thy nakedness. I, even I want you to go to the local abortion clinic tomorrow and for the next seven days. I, even I want you to stand a block away and pray this little prayer, 'Father Yahweh, I ask you in the name of Your Son Yeshua to destroy those who destroy the baby in the womb'". What would you do? Would you obey? Well, over the next six or seven days, we'll be reading about one who did obey. Joshua.

Well, we are in the fifth day and I'll ask you again; If the Lord came to you by night and said: "Wake up, gird thyself and cover thy nakedness. I, even I want you to go to the local abortion clinic tomorrow and for the next seven days. I, even I want you to stand a block away and pray this little prayer, 'Father Yahweh, I ask you in the name of Your Son Yeshua to destroy those who destroy the baby in the womb'".
What would you do?
Would you obey?

May the Lord Jesus be with you, may HE help you to understand His word and abide by it. May He help you to understand that He whispers very quietly and you must listen very carefully to hear His still small voice. While I don not believe He will call on any of you who are Saved to violently end abortion, I do expect Him to use the services of the heathen. And I ask you this very day to start diligently praying for the salvation of those heathens He uses to stop at nothing to end abortion.

Months ago I was posting these thoughts on Free Republic www.freerepublic.com as a daily Christian thought. As I think back I remember several avowed heathens, men and women who absolutely denied the Christ, yet they professed to be almost as Pro-Life as I am. I believe the Lord is going to raise up and army of heathen sharp shooting men and women who will stop at nothing in their quest to save the life of the baby in the womb and it is those brave heathen men and women whose salvation I ask you to start praying for today. That they may immediately upon destroying the abortionist and the mill of an abolitionist, come to repentance and to the Lord Jesus before the federal police and their minions and cohorts on the state and local level kill them, sending them to an eternity, not with those they saved from the butchers slaughter, but with the abortionist butcher they rescued the baby from.

In the Name of the Lord Jesus let us pray to the Father Creator of all things, for the salvation of those He chooses to end abortion at the end of the sword.

Amen!

A tale of two harlots

We have been looking at the book of Joshua for the past few days. So far we have covered chapters one, two and three, today let us take a moment to reflect once again on the harlot Rahab and her twentieth century counterpart of the same profession US Senator Olympia Snowe (R) Maine.

Rahab, while a whore, a woman who supported herself and her family by selling her body, was still a woman whose word was considered as good as gold. Let us look once again at the words of Rahab.

Our first example of the truthfulness of the words of Rahab the prostitute is when she is called before the king of Jericho, the king wants to know about the two spies from the Israelites that were seen going into her house of ill repute:

3. So the king of Jericho sent to Rahab, saying, "Bring out the men who have come to you, who have entered your house, for they have come to search out all the country."
4. Then the woman, Rahab, took the two men and hid them. So she said to the king, "Yes, the men came to me, but I did not know where they were from. And it happened as the gate was being shut, when it was dark, that the men went out. Where the men went I do not know; pursue them quickly, for you may overtake them."
6. (But she had brought them up to the roof and hidden them with the stalks of flax, which she had laid in order on the roof.)
7. Then the men pursued them by the road to the Jordan, to the fords. And as soon as those who pursued them had gone out, they shut the gate.

Notice, not only did the king not question her words, he ordered men to pursue the spies based only upon her word. But not only the heathen king trusted her word, so did the Hebrew spies and Joshua:

In verse eight of chapter two, we read the words spoken by Rahab to the Hebrew spies:
8. Now before they lay down, she came up to them on the roof, and said to the men: "I know that the LORD has given you the land, that the terror of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land are fainthearted because of you. For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites who were on the other side of the Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom you utterly destroyed. And as soon as we heard these things, our hearts melted; neither did there remain any more courage in anyone because of you, for the LORD your God, He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath..."

And in the very last verse of chapter two, we see the spies using these same words in their report to Joshua who uses them in his pep rally of the troops just prior to his attacking Jericho a few days later.
And they said to Joshua, "Truly the LORD has delivered all the land into our hands, for indeed all the inhabitants of the country are fainthearted because of us."

Yes Rahab the whore was a woman whose word could be trusted but what about US Senator Olympia Snowe (R) Maine? Can her word be trusted? Well let us look at the word of Olympia Snowe. Snowe, who is known in Maine as the "Queen of Infanticide" recently was quoted in the Lewiston Sun Times as having made the arsine statement that we must give the unconstitutional EPA even more power to clean the air of mercury, for according to this modern day harlot, 60,000 children are born each year with serious brain problems due to mercury in the air.

When you consider that no more than 2 million babies a year are born in the USA, 60,000 is one huge number, that would mean that one out of every 34 babies born in this country have serious brain problems from airborne mercury alone.

I'm sorry folks, but today's harlot in the Senate, Olympia Snowe, while sharing the profession of prostitute with Rahab, does not share Rahab's reputation for honesty. I would love to see Snowe's source, for I am convinced that she has once again demonstrated her ability to emulate President Clinton and copied his trait of playing footloose and fancy free with the truth.

Rahab was an honest whore, Senator Snowe is not only the champion of infanticide, she is a liar as well. Besides, how could anyone believe that the Senator who has become the champion for partial birth abortion and research on these babies murdered by abortionist, could give even two hoots about any babies.

May the Lord thy God rescue us from the likes of Olympia Snowe and restore to us honest harlots like Rahab. Oh Lord in heaven above, if we must have harlots, could they not at least be ones who are not immune from telling the truth? Could we not at least have harlots that do not hate and despise the baby in the womb? Oh Lord God above, please rescue us and our country from the likes of Olympia Snowe and William Jefferson Blithe Clinton, their minions and their ilk. Lord we pray that You will place a hedge around our young to show them Your way and not let them be lead astray by the likes of Olympia Snowe.

Amen.

Send in the Chaplains!

Can you imagine what would happen today if a general in the US Army said to his subservient officers; "This is the plan of attack, first we send in the chaplains, then the band and then the guys with the weapons...". Most of the Army Generals that I know, the first thing the Lord would probably command of them would be wash out their mouths with soap, and dig the potatoes out of their ears, stop trying to act like tough guys and start praying for the souls of themselves and their troops. While there are exceptions, both of those, a General of the US Army and a General of the USMC, both with four stars, are unfortunately for the troops in both branches, are retired.

In today's Bible reading and thought, we are going to focus on a general, a general with at least 600 hundred thousand armed troops under him, yet, he, this general, listened to the Lord His God, our God, the Messiah. And sent in first the chaplains, then the band and bringing up the rear were the armed and dangerous troops.

And Chapter three:
1. Then Joshua rose early in the morning; and they set out from Acacia Grove and came to the Jordan, he and all the children of Israel, and lodged there before they crossed over. So it was, after three days, that the officers went through the camp; and they commanded the people, saying, "When you see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, and the priests, the Levites, bearing it, then you shall set out from your place and go after it. Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure. Do not come near it, that you may know the way by which you must go, for you have not passed this way before." Follow 2 thousand cubits behind they commanded the troops. Three thousand feet, almost two thirds of a mile. 5. And Joshua said to the people, "Sanctify yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do wonders among you." Sanctify yourselves, how many today even bother getting dressed up to go to church on Sunday mornings? Never mind Sanctifying themselves.

6. Then Joshua spoke to the priests, saying, "Take up the ark of the covenant and cross over before the people." So they took up the ark of the covenant and went before the people. Not only did General Joshua the son of Nun follow the orders of God, so did the priest, imagine the outcry from the chaplain corps if they were told they were going to lead the troops into battle. Today's chaplain corps has kowtowed to the degenerate who calls himself commander in chief, President William Jefferson Blithe Clinton, a man convicted of perjury, a common convicted felon, and have refused to preach against abortion and for salvation by the blood of the Lord Jesus. So, you know how often this group of fine young liberal left wing officers with crosses or stars of David on their shoulders listen to God.

7. And the LORD said to Joshua, "This day I will begin to exalt you in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. You shall command the priests who bear the ark of the covenant, saying, 'When you have come to the edge of the water of the Jordan, you shall stand in the Jordan.'"
now, remember back to yesterday's thought when we read what Rahab the harlot told the two Hebrew spies: Chapter two verses 8-11
" Now before they lay down, she came up to them on the roof, and said to the men: "I know that the LORD has given you the land, that the terror of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land are fainthearted because of you. For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites who were on the other side of the Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom you utterly destroyed. And as soon as we heard these things, our hearts melted; neither did there remain any more courage in anyone because of you, for the LORD your God, He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath."
Notice the part where she tells them that they had heard about what the lord had done in drying up the Red Sea. Well, that was forty years ago, imagine what happened when the men of Jericho who were involved in the fishing business, or any business that brought them to the Jordan river thought when they got to the river that day and either saw it dry up right before their eyes or found it dry as a bone if they got there a bit late.

Now we're going to look at a couple of other passages of Scripture for a moment or two.
In Genesis chapter 19, we read of Sodom and Gomorrah and how it was destroyed.
15. And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.
16. And while Lot lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being merciful unto him: and they brought Lot forth, and set him without the city.
17. And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.
...
24. Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. Take a moment to notice that the inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah did not repent, and as a result they all died.

Now, let's look at the book of Jonah: chapter 3 verses 1-10
1. And the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the second time, saying, "Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee." So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days' journey. And Jonah began to enter into the city a day's journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.
5. So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them. For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes. And he caused it to be proclaimed and published through Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, "Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink water: But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands. Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce anger, that we perish not?"
10. And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.

It will be interesting to see if the folks in Jericho will follow in the footsteps of the homosexuals in Sodom and Gomorrah or leave an example for the folks of Nineveh.

Let us return to Joshua:

9. So Joshua said to the children of Israel, "Come here, and hear the words of the LORD your God." And Joshua said, "By this you shall know that the living God is among you, and that He will without fail drive out from before you the Canaanites and the Hittites and the Hivites and the Perizzites and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Jebusites: Behold, the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth is crossing over before you into the Jordan. Now therefore, take for yourselves twelve men from the tribes of Israel, one man from every tribe. And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests who bear the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of the Jordan, that the waters of the Jordan shall be cut off, the waters that come down from upstream, and they shall stand as a heap."

14. So it was, when the people set out from their camp to cross over the Jordan, with the priests bearing the ark of the covenant before the people, and as those who bore the ark came to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests who bore the ark dipped in the edge of the water (for the Jordan overflows all its banks during the whole time of harvest), that the waters which came down from upstream stood still, and rose in a heap very far away at Adam, the city that is beside Zaretan. So the waters that went down into the Sea of the Arabah, the Salt Sea, failed, and were cut off; and the people crossed over opposite Jericho. Wow, this time God stopped the waters upstream about a hundred miles or so, unlike the Red Sea, this time it must have appeared to the men of Jericho that God had dried up all the river. Talk about uptight, you can just see the headlines of the local town crier.
"God does it again, Jordan goes dry!"
Men running around half shouting close the gates, "lock the doors, here come the Hebrews!"
And others shouting "Let me out, I want to flee to the mountains where these Hebrews won't find me!"

17. Then the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD stood firm on dry ground in the midst of the Jordan; and all Israel crossed over on dry ground, until all the people had crossed completely over the Jordan.

Till tomorrow, let me ask you this; Which would today's USA do? Follow Sodom or follow Nineveh? What about you? Would you fall on your knees and repent? Ask the Christ Jesus, into your heart? Or would you follow in the steps of the homosexuals of Sodom and Gomorrah?

Later in the book of Joshua, Joshua ask a question, how would you answer?
Choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. Joshua 24:15

May the Father above forgive us those things we have said, done, thought and dreamt that have offended Him, may He forgive us and protect us, may he keep us safe from evil, the evil one, his minions, his ilk and those who serve him knowingly and unknowingly.

Amen.

God Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth be with you.

US Senator Olympia Snowe (R) Maine is no Rahab, and thank God, Rahab was no Olympia Snowe!

Not long ago bill clinton, the president of the United States of America was found guilty of perjury, perjury as you all know is lying under oath. It is where one takes an oath by placing one's hand on the Bible and then swearing to God above that they are about to tell the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Bill clinton lied while he was under oath. And Olympia Snowe one of only two republicans joining their leftist communist colleagues on the democrat side, claimed that perjury was no big deal and that clinton hadn't done anything really wrong. The other was Snowe's near and dear friend and fellow republican US senator from Maine, Susan Collins.

Today we are going to look at the importance of being truthful and keeping your oath and telling the truth. As we proceed, I think you'll come to realize that whores 3400 years ago had more honor, character and respectability then today's president of the United States. Or that at least one whore, a woman by the name of Rahab did. Our country would be far better off having Rahab sitting in the oval office than the current occupant.

Chapter two: 1. Now Joshua the son of Nun sent out two men from Acacia Grove to spy secretly, saying, "Go, view the land, especially Jericho." So they went, and came to the house of a harlot named Rahab, and lodged there.

2. And it was told the king of Jericho, saying, "Behold, men have come here tonight from the children of Israel to search out the country."

3. So the king of Jericho sent to Rahab, saying, "Bring out the men who have come to you, who have entered your house, for they have come to search out all the country."

4. Then the woman took the two men and hid them. So she said, "Yes, the men came to me, but I did not know where they were from. And it happened as the gate was being shut, when it was dark, that the men went out. Where the men went I do not know; pursue them quickly, for you may overtake them."

6. (But she had brought them up to the roof and hidden them with the stalks of flax, which she had laid in order on the roof.)

7. Then the men pursued them by the road to the Jordan, to the fords. And as soon as those who pursued them had gone out, they shut the gate.

8. Now before they lay down, she came up to them on the roof, and said to the men: "I know that the LORD has given you the land, that the terror of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land are fainthearted because of you. For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites who were on the other side of the Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom you utterly destroyed. And as soon as we heard these things, our hearts melted; neither did there remain any more courage in anyone because of you, for the LORD your God, He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath."
Rhab continued by saying to Joshua's spies:
12. "Now therefore, I beg you, swear to me by the LORD, since I have shown you kindness, that you also will show kindness to my father's house, and give me a true token, and spare my father, my mother, my brothers, my sisters, and all that they have, and deliver our lives from death." Rahab has confessed God as the only God, she has humbled herself and has told the spies just what she did for them, and asked them to repay her by guaranteeing her and her family's safety when they return to take Jericho. She is asking them to give her their word as an oath.

14 . So the men answered her, "Our lives for yours, if none of you tell this business of ours. And it shall be, when the LORD has given us the land, that we will deal kindly and truly with you." The Hebrew Spies have just given her their word that since she saved their lives, they would in turn save hers and her family's lives. And for that all that she has asked to be spared, including possessions. As long as she doesn't tell anyone about what they were doing or where they have gone.

15. Then she let them down by a rope through the window, for her house was on the city wall; she dwelt on the wall. And she said to them, "Get to the mountain, lest the pursuers meet you. Hide there three days, until the pursuers have returned. Afterward you may go your way."

17. So the men said to her: "We will be blameless of this oath of yours which you have made us swear, unless, when we come into the land, you bind this line of scarlet cord in the window through which you let us down, and unless you bring your father, your mother, your brothers, and all your father's household to your own home. So it shall be that whoever goes outside the doors of your house into the street, his blood shall be on his own head, and we will be guiltless. And whoever is with you in the house, his blood shall be on our head if a hand is laid on him. And if you tell this business of ours, then we will be free from your oath which you made us swear." Notice, the two Hebrews tell her right up front, that she must do two things for this their oath to protect her and hers to be binding, one; she must hang out a scarlet cord when the return and two; she may tell no one about them.

21. Then she said, "According to your words, so be it." And she sent them away, and they departed. And she bound the scarlet cord in the window. Rahab not only agrees, she isn't wasting any time, she hangs the scarlet cord out immediately.

22. They departed and went to the mountain, and stayed there three days until the pursuers returned. The pursuers sought them all along the way, but did not find them. So the two men returned, descended from the mountain, and crossed over; and they came to Joshua the son of Nun, and told him all that had befallen them. And they said to Joshua, "Truly the LORD has delivered all the land into our hands, for indeed all the inhabitants of the country are fainthearted because of us." And just where did they hear this bit about the men of the land being scared of them because of all they have heard that God has done for them? Why Rahab the harlot of course. Remember back in verses 9-11 Rahab was explaining to the Hebrew spies and said:
"I know that the LORD has given you the land, that the terror of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land are fainthearted because of you. For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites who were on the other side of the Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom you utterly destroyed. And as soon as we heard these things, our hearts melted; neither did there remain any more courage in anyone because of you, for the LORD your God, He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath." Verses 9-11

Imagine the consequences had Rahab the whore had the character, honor, integrity and truthfulness of Bill Clinton, Olympia Snowe, Barney Frank, John Baldacci, Janet Reno, Bill Cohen or Ruth Bader Ginsberg. But then again, the stakes were much higher back then, God would not have sent His spies to a clinton, or a Reno. A whore yes, but one who had enough respect for herself to tell the truth, even when the times got tough. Even when it meant lying to the government to protect the blood of the innocent.

My brothers and sisters, I would tell you it is better that your daughters learn character, honesty and integrity from Rahab then from Snowe, Collins, Clinton and Ginsberg. Do you think Rahab would have killed her babies while they were within her womb? Some day perhaps, I'll publish insurance documents about Snowe and Collins, Hillary and Ginsberg. Do you think for even one micro second that Rahab would have slept with another woman as she would sleep with a man? What about Snowe and Collins? Trust me, it is better your daughters should learn from Rahab then Snowe, Reno, Collins, Hillary, Ginsberg et el.

May the Lord thy God be with you and yours this day, may He keep your families safe and may He protect you and yours from the evil that presides in our highest offices.

Amen.

So they did six days. But it came to pass on the seventh day

If the Lord came to you by night and said: "Wake up, gird thyself and cover thy nakedness. I, even I want you to go to the local abortion clinic tomorrow and for the next seven days. I, even I want you to stand a block away and pray this little prayer, 'Father Yahweh, I ask you in the name of Your Son Yeshua to destroy those who destroy the baby in the womb'". What would you do? Would you obey? Well, over the next six or seven days, we'll be reading about one who did obey. Joshua.

While time and time again the Lord God Creator of all things has used heathens, pagans and the unsaved to kill and destroy. There are times such as the ones we will be looking at in which God Himself does the avenging, the house cleaning if you would.

I know that one day, God will raise up a heathen or two to end abortion, for He has made it clear that we are not to use violence against those baby butchers, but He will one day say "Enough is enough!" and put and end to this wonton slaughter on His own perhaps by the hand of heathen gunmen and bombers. As He used the heathen satan worshipers in the clinton administration and reno justice department to return Elian to his father. So can He just as easily use the Christ haters at the batf, fbi and other secret police agencies to end abortion.

Or perhaps, just perhaps, He will ask a few faithful men to :"Wake up, gird thyself and cover thy nakedness. I, even I want you to go to the local abortion clinic tomorrow and for the next seven days. I, even I want you to stand a block away and pray this little prayer, 'Father Yahweh, I ask you in the name of Your Son Yeshua to destroy those who destroy the baby in the womb'". And let us observe as He crumbles the walls of the abortion industry and buildings down upon the heads of the child slaughtering high priest of baal that kill little babies while they are trapped in the supposed safety, but in reality the most dangerous place on earth, the womb.

Joshua chapter one:
1. After the death of Moses the servant of the LORD, it came to pass that the LORD spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' assistant, saying:

2. "Moses My servant is dead. Now therefore, arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them-the children of Israel. Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the River Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your territory. No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."
10. Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying, "Pass through the camp and command the people, saying, 'Prepare provisions for yourselves, for within three days you will cross over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land which the LORD your God is giving you to possess.'"

12. And to the Reubenites, the Gadites, and half the tribe of Manasseh Joshua spoke, saying "Remember the word which Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, saying, 'The LORD your God is giving you rest and is giving you this land.' Your wives, your little ones, and your livestock shall remain in the land which Moses gave you on this side of the Jordan. But you shall pass before your brethren armed, all your mighty men of valor, and help them, until the LORD has given your brethren rest, as He gave you, and they also have taken possession of the land which the LORD your God is giving them. Then you shall return to the land of your possession and enjoy it, which Moses the LORD'S servant gave you on this side of the Jordan toward the sunrise."

16. So they answered Joshua, saying, "All that you command us we will do, and wherever you send us we will go. Just as we heeded Moses in all things, so we will heed you. Only the LORD your God be with you, as He was with Moses. Whoever rebels against your command and does not heed your words, in all that you command him, shall be put to death. Only be strong and of good courage."

Not only does Joshua heed the Word of God, but so do over 2.5 million men, women and children. IF there were 2.5 million Born Again Christians today in these United States of America, do you think we would heed the words of a Joshua? Would we or better yet, do we heed the Word of God? Do you take the words written in Scripture as the voice and command of God Almighty? Or do you read them, look at them, ponder them, shake your head up and down and go about your daily secular business?

Do you read the Word of God as you sing the hymn "I'll surrender all" with empty gusto? By that I mean, when you sing the hymn "I'll surrender all" do you mean you'll surrender all to God or do you really mean you'll surrender all you have left and no use for after using what you can, selling what you can find a buyer for, giving away anything left that anyone will take and then what's left after trying to unload it at the dumb and being refused? Or do you mean, "I'll give all to You dear Lord, You get it first, You get the first fruits of my labor and of me. I'll do as You ask and I'll go where you command, and You will not have to shout, for I will follow Your word in Your Holly Scriptures. I will try to give to You, me, as You have given You for me."

For you see, Joshua and the million of Hebrews who followed him, surrendered all and followed the Lord's word even when it sounded impossible, for they trusted in the Lord thy God, they understood that God is Almighty and the Creator of all things and that He can do anything He wants, that nothing is to difficult for the Lord thy God to do.

The Lord thy God be with you all today. May He hear your cries and protect you and yours from the evil one, his minions, his ilk and those who serve him knowingly and unknowingly. May he protect you and guard you from temptation and may He protect your little ones with angels with flaming swords.

Amen.

Would you die for a liar?

Think about it for a minute, to cover up for someone's lie(s), would you willingly be beaten time after time, be tortured and finally be put to death slowly and agonizingly? I think not, nor would the Apostles have been if Jesus were not the Christ and if He had not risen from the grave three days after His crucifixion.

Time after time we hear unbelievers claim that Jesus really never arose from the grave, that He never really came back to life and was risen from the dead three days after His crucifixion. No they say, Jesus's body was grabbed from under the noses of the Roman guard by His disciples. But, if that were the case, would His disciples have been willing to die to continue to cover for such a lie? I think not.

Let us look at First John.

1. That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life-- the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us-- that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.
Read what John is saying, he is saying that he and the other apostles are relaying to us through their writings that which they actually saw, not heard about, but saw. Remember how Jesus showed Himself, how Thomas put his finger into the holes in the Lord's hands and thrust his hand into the gash in the Lord's side?

Let us read John chapter 20 to refresh our memories;

1. Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. Then she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and said to them, "They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him."

Peter therefore went out, and the other disciple (John), and were going to the tomb. So they both ran together, and the other disciple outran Peter and came to the tomb first. And he, stooping down and looking in, saw the linen cloths lying there; yet he did not go in.

Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb; and he saw the linen cloths lying there, and the handkerchief that had been around His head, not lying with the linen cloths, but folded together in a place by itself. Then the other disciple (John), who came to the tomb first, went in also; and he saw and believed. For as yet they did not know the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead. (Psalm 16:10 For You will not leave my soul in Sheol,(death, hades, hell, etc) Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.)

Then the disciples went away again to their own homes. But Mary stood outside by the tomb weeping, and as she wept she stooped down and looked into the tomb. And she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. Then they said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping?" She said to them, "Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him." Now when she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?" She, supposing Him to be the gardener, said to Him, "Sir, if You have carried Him away, tell me where You have laid Him, and I will take Him away."

16. Jesus said to her, "Mary!" She turned and said to Him, "Rabboni!" (which is to say, Teacher.) Jesus said to her, "Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, 'I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to my and your God.'"

Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that He had spoken these things to her. Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, "Peace be with you." When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. So Jesus said to them again, "Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you." And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained."

Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said to Thomas, "We have seen the Lord." So Thomas said to them, "Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe."

26. And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, "Peace to you!" Then Jesus said to Thomas, "Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing."

28. And Thomas answered and said to Him, "My Lord and my God!" Jesus said to him, "Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."

30. And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.

As you read John Chapter 20 did you notice what John was referring to? Did you notice that Thomas had to see and actually feel the wounds in order to believe. Well, Thomas's unbelief and the Lords proving Himself to Thomas by allowing Thomas to thrust his hand into His side, not only was proof positive for Thomas, but reinforced the belief of the other Apostles as well.

Let us continue with First John;

4. And these things we write to you that your joy may be full.
John isn't writing, hoping for a best seller, he isn't writing looking for a way to kill time, he is writing so that you and I can see and understand the Jesus is the Christ. That Jesus is the Son fo God, theat Jesus is along with the Father and the Holy Spirit, GOD! And that He is worth being tortured and killed for, for in Jesus is the truth.

5. This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
Jesus is the Light and through His blood can one be cleansed.

8. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

10. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

May the Lord God Creator of all things in earth, on earth and in heaven bless you and be with you and yours this day. May you be willing to listen for theat still small voice that is the voice of God calling and instructing you in your walk with Him.

May the Father, Yahweh bless you and care for you, may He place His Holy Spirit within you in the name of the Messiah, the Son of God the Father, Yeshua I pray.
Amen.

Peter himself tells us that "that stone" is Jesus and no other.

1. Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
Peter is very clearly telling us that there is only one God only one Christ and no one should envy Him or try to take His place, but instead to build upon Him and accept Him as Lord, God, Saviour as little ones accept the milk of their mother's breast. It is Jesus the church is built upon, not the Apostle Peter or any other creation of God.

4. To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, BEHOLD, I LAY IN ZION A CHIEF CORNER STONE, ELECT, PRECIOUS: AND HE THAT BELIEVETH ON HIM SHALL NOT BE CONFOUNDED. (Isaiah 28:16)

7. Unto you therefore which believe He is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS DISALLOWED, THE SAME IS MADE THE HEAD OF THE CORNER. The Stone is Jesus, the builders are those jews who refused to accept Him. (Psalm 118:22)

8. And A STONE OF STUMBLING, AND A ROCK OF OFFENCE, (Isaiah 8:14) even to them which stumble at the Word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous Light:
"Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous Light:", the Him is God the "His marvelous Light" is Jesus.

10. Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
Before Jesus there were no Born Again Christians, so there were no people like unto us today. Today, we are the chosen people a people unique in our love, faith, thanks and acceptance of the Lord God Yeshua.

11. Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; (Read verses one and two again) 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.
Do not become part of the world, do not cheat, lie, steal, act like the president, be adulterous or any of the other traits of the current majority of congressman, senators, judges, leaders, etc. But, be different, be noticeably different by your Christlike behavior. One wife, one husband, honest, modest, etc.

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.
This is not clinton the Apostle Peter is telling us to follow. Read carefully and what Peter is saying is that we are to submit to the law of the land. The supreme law of the land. Clinton, senators, congressmen, sheriffs and other corrupt degenerate corrupters of both God's law and the constitution are not the supreme law of this land. They are but public servants. The supreme law of the land in these Untied States is the law in which those above despise almost as much as they do the Word of God, the Constitution of These United States. Read with me, from the US Constitution:
"This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any thing in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding." (Article Six US Constitution.)

15. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: (By your abiding by the Word of God and the US Constitution, you put lesser men to shame for their disrespect to both.) As free, and not using your liberty for a cloak of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.
Keep in mind, clinton is not the king, but a public servant.

No, the church is not built on Peter, the church is built upon the actions taken by the Lord Jesus, the Christ. As we have been mislead to believe that clinton, and the others in public office are our leaders, so have many of our brethren been mislead to believe that the church is built upon a man, a fellow creation called Peter. I am not showing disrespect to the Apostle Peter, what I am saying is that Peter was but a man like you and me, while Jesus is God. And God and only God could be the stone on which our salvation rest.

Pray for our Roman Catholic friends who have been lead astray in their search for salvation by an idol worshiping, pagan festival infected Roman Catholic church and it's various spin offs like the Episcopal, Russian Orthodox and Greek Orthodox. For they are the Church of Laodicea that Jesus is talking about in Revelation three.

The Lord thy God be with and bless you, may He. The Father and the Holy Spirt indwell within you, guide you, teach you and protect you in all things.

Amen.

As you read the New Testament, you'll notice that Jesus has caused us to drop some Old Testament edicts and take on new. One in particular is this, in Matthew, Jesus tells us a part of His sermon on the mount:

Matthew 5: 38-48
ye have heard that it hath been said, AN EYE FOR AN EYE, AND A TOOTH FOR A TOOTH: (Exodus 21: 12-25(24), Leviticus 24:20, & Deuteronomy 19:21)

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

Ye have heard that it hath been said, THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR, (Deuteronomy 23:3-6) and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you,

and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Now, as you read the above verses, you might have noticed that while the Lord told us to love our neighbors and our enemies, He also did not leave us defenseless, He told us to use prayer. And that my brothers and sisters is the most powerful weapon on earth today. Look, if we all prayed for the salvation of the women carrying babies there would be no abortions. If you would like, you can pray for the abortionist as well. While I do not believe that abortionist can be saved, I would love to be proven wrong and you and your prayers can do that.

If we prayed hard enough and long enough, Christians would be elected to the congress and the senate of our country and clinton would be put in jail, tried and executed if found guilty of treason. If we prayed hard enough and with enough conviction the Supreme Court of these fine states would fear God and not clinton, they would serve God and not mammon and prayer would once again start the day in our public schools.

If we prayed long enough and hard enough, my brother would drop his pagan worship and be Born Again, my sister would be my sister in the Lord as well a the girl child that came from the same womb as I. Young Christian marriages would never fail and the children from those holy unions would be born again from the instant they were conceived.

How do I know these and other great things would happen if we were but to pray? Messiah Yeshua Himself has told us so, that's how.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
John 14:12-14

All we, as Born Again believers in the Lord Jesus need do is go to Him in prayer. Pray to the Father, Yahweh in the name of the Son, Yeshua through the Holy Spirit and it will be done. Through prayer, the Supreme court can be made up of all Clarence Thomas's. Congress could be full of Dan Burtons and Helen Chenoweth's instead of barney franks and olympia snowes.

Through prayer to the Father, through the Son, anything can be accomplished. Abortion can be abolished by praying the Lord to instill in the mother, love for her baby. Ricky, Jean, Howard and Michael would come to know the Lord Jesus. A family of six Christian missionaries going to Brussels could and will start a continent wide revival. And the dark police officer in Wakeman, Ohio that helped them and the mechanic driving the red mustang that this officer brought to repair their van will be rewarded for their kindness and their caring by finding the Lord, being Born Again and spending all eternity with that family of six, the Lord and me and every other Born Again believer throughout history.

Let us pray, Oh Father in heaven hear us as we come to you on bended knees in the name of Your Son, our Lord and Saviour the Messiah Jesus. Please Lord hear those things above and those things we pray for in our hearts, help us Lord to be strong in You, to know that through You all things are possible and if we will but have faith, we can achieve all that we pray for, that we can move mountains, soften hearts, return You to the public schools and make this country great once again.

Oh please Lord hear our prayers, open the eyes of those we pray for remove the scales from their eyes, the hardness from their hearts and the wax from their ears, let them worship you instead of mammon, let them understand that it si only through You that they will find peace, happiness, health and love.

In Thy sacred and holy name I pray.

Amen.

The Fourth of July, 2000

Happy Fourth of July...

Today we celebrate Independence Day. Today we clebrate the actions taken by our fore fathers that have made us free to choose.

Joshua 24:15
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

Matthew 6:24
Jesus says:
"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."

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

So, this day in which we celebrate that in which our founding fathers pledged their sacred honor to guarantee us, and as you read Article one of the Bill of Rights:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The Declaration of Independence

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world. He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them. He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless these people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only. He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within. He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands. He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers. He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance. He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures. He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power. He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation: For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us. For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury. For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences. For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies. For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments. For suspending our own Legislatures and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us. He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation. He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands. He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions. In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

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

And then they signed their names for one and all to see.

Choose you this day my friends and fellow patriots, will it be Christ or will it be clinton. For you can not both abide by the dictates of this corrupt and degenerate administration and congress and be a Christian. For you will either love the law and despise the Lord or love the Lord and despise the law of abortion, mammon and the idolatry of the heathen government. But thanks be to God we can still choose freely in this country.

May the Lord God above raise up one or two who will stand up for the rights of the many, May He give us but a few who will put the lives of the babies in the womb ahead of the medicines and profits that can be derived from them. May He love us enough to correct us, to rebuke us to chasten us. To rescue us from what we have become, to reestablish us as His people. May He raise up among us great and God fearing preachers who will unashamedly preach His Word and lead us as a nation to repentance and revival.

Amen.

Wednesday June 28th and Thursday June 29th, 2000

Please note today's thought is for the next two days, I will be out of twon and unable to do a thought on Thursday. Thank you for your patience.

This one is for ladies.

Most often the daily thought is done mostly for men. Well, today, the thought is aimed at ladies.

In Genesis 3:16, God tells Eve and through Eve all women,
"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."
Ladies God said conceive and conception, not abortion.

In Titus 2:3-5, Paul tells women:
"The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as be cometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed."
Mothers teach your daughters to love their children, not send them to kiddie kennels, not to the abortionist, not put into the care of heathen baby sitters, but love your children.

And how does the Lord Jesus look at children?
Matthew 18:3 And Jesus said,
"Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven."

Matthew 19:13&14,
Then were there brought unto Jesus little children, that He should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, "Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven."
We are to have the faith and trust of little children, the kingdom of heaven is made up of little children.

Mothers the Lord has charged you to love and teach your children, you are to teach them to be honest, chaste, and to love, serve and trust in the Lord. And what if you don't. What if you say, "I wish to be my child's best friend, I want him of her to have earthly things to go to secular schools and do secular things. I want my son or daughter to grow up having secular friends and secular fun."

For thsoe who think they will get awau with leading their children astray, the same verses that apply to the abortionist, apply to you.

Matthew 18:6
"But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in Me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea."

Mark 9:42
"And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in Me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea."

Luke 17:2
"It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones." Jesus entrust your children to your hand and your care. You are to take that responsibility very seriously, for it is most apparent that the little child who is molested, hurt or lead astray, will be avenged by God. And that avenging will not be pretty. For when you think about a millstone being hung about a persons neck and that person then dropped into the sea, not only is he drowned, but his flesh is eaten by the creatures of the sea, and what is not eaten becomes, bloated, swelled, disfigured and rotten. And that would be better then what the Lord has planned for them who lead His astray.

A parent who leads his or her child astray, who does not discipline that child, who allows that child to be corrupted by the secular world, who raises that child to disregard God, well, for that parent it would be better had they had a millstone hung around their necks and dropped into the deepest sea, it would be better for them to rot at the bottom of the sea, to be eaten by crabs, to have their bodies bloated and rotting then what God has in mind for them for turning that little one from Him. It is you that teaches your sons to treat girls like ladies, it is you who tells your daughter no to miniskirts and bikinis. It is you who must teach your children the ten commandments, the rules and commandments of God. It is you who is charged with teaching the Bible to your children, it is you, the parents, who are charged with the responsibility of bringing your child(ren) to Christ.

Oh Father Yahweh, I pray to Thee in the name of Thy Sacred and Holy Son Yeshua, please help us to raise our children the way You would have us to. And for those of us whose children are grown, I pray and ask Thee to correct the mistakes we made, that You would take our children under Your arm as a mother hen does her chicks and correct the mistakes we made.

Please Lord God above strengthen those who are now raising children, help them to do what is right in Your sight.

Amen.

And to those moms who are home schooling and raising their kids to be solid God fearing Christians, I pray God's special and continued blessings upon you and yours. Amen and amen!

Well, are you a Christian?

In yesterday's thought, we looked at what it takes to be a Christian, let's delve a bit further. In today's study, we will look at chapter one of the book of Titus.

1 Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness;
2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;
3 But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;

Now, notice how Paul has said "according to the commandment of God our Saviour."

4 To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.
Now notice how Paul has said "from God the Father and from Jesus Christ our Saviour."

5 For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee:
Notice that Paul is telling Titus to ordain elders, in verse 7, Paul uses the word bishop, we today would use the word(s) minister, pastor, or even reverend. Now in the next verses Paul tells Titus what to look for in these men whom he will ordain.

6 If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.
7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;
8 But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;
9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.

You may want to read those qualifications over a few times, for if you fit into the description, then you should be asking God on bended knees if He wants you to preach. But also to see if your pastor falls within the guidelines as well. Keep this in mind, "husband of one wife..." does not mean one who has never been divorced, but one who is married to only one woman at this time. At the time of the writing having more than one wife was not uncommon. That is not to suggest that your pastor can change wives as our president does interns. It should also be mentioned that since your pastor accepted Christ as Lord, Saviour, Creator and God, he should have had only one wife and that one should be his current wife. No divorce or interns since having accepted the Lord and becoming a Christian.

Now Paul is going to get into the whys and the warnings of false pastors, bishops, elders, preachers, etc.
10 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:
11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.

This is a particular warning against those who, by using the commentaries of the Old Testament, try to prove that Jesus is not the Christ. They don't use Old Testament Scripture, but instead commentaries written by famous rabbis and so called scholars. See verse 14 also.

12 One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are always liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.
13 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

One of these false teachers, claimed that all Cretians were liars, major sinners and lazy and Paul in verse 13, confirms this.

14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.

Unto the Saved, the words of the Bible are the true and exact words of God Almighty, and are open through the Holy Spirit for us to understand. Unto the unsaved the Bible is just a nice book of pleasant myths.

16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
Jesus put it this way: Matthew 7:17-19
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.

To be a Christian, one must accept everything that is written in the Holy Bible, one must understand and accept the fact the Jesus is one with the Father, the He the Holy Spirt and the Father are one God. That Jesus is not some peer or friend or just a nice guy that walked the earth preaching two thousand years ago. No, to be a Christian is to understand and accept with all your heart and all your soul the fact that Jesus the Saviour and God the Saviour are one and the same.

To be a Christian means that if the school your children are going to is celebrating earth day, then you must remove them from that school, for they are being taught fables, they are being taught pantheism. And you as the father of that household are the pastor of your home. You as the mother of those children are told what you need do in verses 3-9 of Titus chapter two.

So, then why do we pray to God the Father in the name of God the Son? We pray to Yahweh in the name of Yeshua as a way of acknowledging that Yeshua and Yahweh are one and in verbal commitment to Jesus and all that He did for us. Remember John 3 1-18, believe that Jesus is God and that is your salvation.

In the name of the Lord Jesus, the Christ, the Messiah I ask God the Father to open your eyes and help you and yours be His. I ask Yeshua Messiah to bring to Him; Sean and Tammy, Michael and Howard and the child Cindy asked about. And all of my children known to me and unknown to me, natural, step and simply claimed.

Amen.

Are you a Christian?

Just what does it mean to be a Christian? How does one become Born Again? And just what does Paul mean when he tells the Jailer that he must believe on the Lord Jesus?

Let's start with Scripture.

In the book of Acts, chapter 16, verses 25-32 we read: Around midnight, Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening.
Suddenly, there was a great earthquake, and the prison was shaken to its foundations. All the doors flew open, and the chains of every prisoner fell off! The jailer woke up to see the prison doors wide open. He assumed the prisoners had escaped, so he drew his sword to kill himself. But Paul shouted to him, "Don't do it! We are all here!"

Trembling with fear, the jailer called for lights and ran to the dungeon and fell down before Paul and Silas. He brought them out and asked,

"Sirs, what must I do to be saved?"

They replied,

"Believe on the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, along with your entire household."

Then they shared the word of the Lord with him and all who lived in his household.

In John The third chapter, Nicodemus comes to Jesus and ask Him the same question:
There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, "Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him."

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

So, just what does it mean to be Born Again, to Believe on the Lord?

It means this, to be a Christian means that you believe and are placing your salvation on the fact that Jesus is not only the Son of God, but is one with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit. It means that you are absolutely convinced and do truly believe that Jesus did every single thing told about Him in the Bible, that He was Born of a virgin named Mary, that He lived a perfect and sinless life, that He was hung on a cross, bleed and died for the atonement of our sins and that He arose from the dead three days later.

Being a Christian means that you are absolutely committed to the Holy Bible as the inerrant world of God and that you believe every word written in it.
That you believe without question in the Trinity and that you will spend eternity in heaven with the Lord, not because of good deeds or the "good" life you've lead, but by the Grace of God an the atonement and forgiveness of your sins by the Blood shed by the Lord on the cross.

If you doubt the virgin birth, you are not a Christian!
If you doubt the Trinity, you are not a Christian!
If you think there are inconsistencies, contradictions or any other faults with the Bible, you are not a Christian!
If you doubt that only those who are Born Again get into heaven you are not a Christian!
If you think there is any other way to heaven other than by believing on the Lord Jesus, the Christ, you are not a Christian.

That's it, end of today's thought. Now, are you a Christian or not?

May the Lord my God, Yeshua be with you and open your eyes this self same day. May He lead you to Him as one of His for He and only HE can read your heart and will judge you not by your deeds, nor by your words, but by your heart. He knows if you are a Christian and so do you. If you're not, it is time you are. I pray for the salvation of all to Yahweh in the name of Yeshua.
Amen.

Weekend of June 24th & 25th, 2000

What compass are we using?

As we listen to the candidates for president, it is becoming more and more obvious that both Gore and Bush are offering our nation a financial compass and not a moral compass. Gore is offering out and out communism while Bush cloaks his socialism with bits and pieces of capitalism. But both are looking to lead, not based upon a moral compass of right and wrong, but a financial compass of "let them eat cake".

This nation we call the United States, was not founded upon the principals of finance, it was founded and became great based upon the principals of God's moral compass. We were a nation founded upon the premise that if we followed God's rules, we would prosper and prosper we did, now we have become a nation that does not argue and debate the rules of God as we look to select he who will be king for the next four years, instead we focus our attention on social security, food stamps, welfare, drug cards and other unconstitutional socialist government give away financial programs. And God has turned His face from us it would seem, for in this nation, this very day, between one third and one half of the babies conceived will be ripped apart, tortured, executed, cut up and sold for profit, while they are trapped within their mothers wombs. All for a little profit and in an effort to satisfy the god of this world, satan.

There are candidates who would like to lead us back to a moral compass, one established by God the Creator, but candidates other than Democrats and Republican one worlders are barred from our air waves, newspapers, and periodicals. The gods of finance would not have the issue of abortion infanticide, euthanasia and the other forms of murder and human sacrifice currently acceptable to both major parties, influenced by the courage of men who would point out the moral injustice and anti Christ attitude of our current policies and compass.

And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the LORD, and lie unto his neighbor in that which was delivered him to keep, or in fellowship, or in a thing taken away by violence, or hath deceived his neighbor; Or have found that which was lost, and lies concerning it, and swear to falsely; in any of all these that a man does, sinning therein:

Then it shall be, because he hath sinned, and is guilty, that he shall restore that which he took violently away, or the thing which he hath deceitfully gotten, or that which was delivered him to keep, or the lost thing which he found, Or all that about which he hath sworn falsely; he shall even restore it in the principal, and shall add the fifth part more thereto, and give it unto him to whom it appertain to, in the day of his trespass offering.
Leviticus 6:1-5

The judges sitting on the Supreme Court in 1963 when they kicked the Christ out of the Schools were appointed by Democrats Truman and Kennedy along with Republican Eisenhower. The judges sitting on the Supreme Court in 1972 that made it legal for a woman to take her baby in womb to be slaughtered at her whim and for her convenience, profit or sacrifice to her god were judges appointed by those same presidents, and Democrat Johnson and Republican Nixon.

Who will restore to two generations in the public schools the moral compass stolen from them in 1963?
Who will restore life to the hundred million babies murdered in the womb?

Who? Well, this I can tell you, it won't be one who seeks a financial compass, for the compass of finance encourages the elimination of the weak, the elderly, the handicapped. The compass of the finance does not seek to feed the world's hungry, but eliminate them, does not seek to protect the baby in the womb, but profit from him or her. No, it won't be Bush and it won't be Gore. But nor will it be Mr. Philips or Mr. Buchanan. It will only be through the Lord of lords, King of kings, Messiah Yeshua will we find a way to turn back to the compass of morality and God's laws. Turn back to a nation of doing what is right, not what is temporarily profitable.

And one day soon,. That will happen, for no less than the Lord Himself has told us that He will be back, He will return and when He does, there will be a price to pay that is beyond our puny human ability to imagine, and all but those who make up His church the one He calls the church of Philadelphia in Revelation will pay the price for turning from Him and to mammon.

And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith He that is Holy, He that is true, He that hath the key of David, He that opens, and no man shuts; and shuts, and no man opens;

I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

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.

Because thou hast kept the word of My patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, which is New Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from My God: and I will write upon him My new name.
Revelation 3:7-12

There are no guarantees in life, other than the one guarantee made by Christ Himself and that is the guarantee that all who believe on His name and are born again will share heaven for all eternity with He and the Father as adopted brothers and sisters of the Christ and adopted sons and daughters of the Father, God Almighty. And that those who do not, are condemned to everlasting pain, suffering and torment in outer darkness and the fires of hell.

I pray you will, this very day, accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior guaranteeing yourself eternity in heaven, if you have not already done so. And if you are a born again Christian, then praise God that we are coming ever nearer to the time when He will return for us and give unto us that which Bush, Gore and the rest can not even imagine. For one day soon, those who killed the babies and stole the freedoms from our young, will stand before He who created all things, they will bend their knees, bow to the King and then leave for their eternity in hell.

The Lord be with you and may He not keep us waiting much longer.
Amen.

Be ye separate...

During the last few days, I have come to realize more and more just how different children in Christian and children in secular homes are raised. Children in Christian families are raised knowing and understanding that they are to wait till marriage to have a sexual relationship, live together and start a family. But today's children raised within secular families are being brought up to simply wait till they have a boy friend. A boy friend they really like. These two positions are so opposite from one another, that there will come a time, a time very soon, when for either society to have continued existence, means that both societies, the Christian society and the heathen or secular society must be totally separate from one another to survive, for they are becoming diametrically opposed, with no common ground.

Paul wrote in Second Corinthians 6:14-18
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I WILL DWELL IN THEM, AND WALK IN THEM; AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE. WHEREFORE COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM, AND BE YE SEPARATE, SAITH THE LORD, AND TOUCH NOT THE UNCLEAN THING; AND I WILL RECEIVE YOU, AND WILL BE A FATHER UNTO YOU, AND YE SHALL BE MY SONS AND DAUGHTERS, SAITH THE LORD ALMIGHTY.

With the heathen world teaching their children to respect homosexuality and lesbianism, while the Christians of the world teach their children that homosexuality and lesbianism are an abomination punishable by death. The secular world teaches that it is a mother's choice to kill her unborn baby trapped within her womb, Christians teach that all life is sacred and that God Himself has given children to us as a gift and that all are made in His image. The heathens teach their kids that Jesus was just a great teacher, Christians teach that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God, that He was of a virgin birth and that through His blood is one saved. The heathen world teaches theirs to worship mother earth and that all religions are the same. Christians teach their children that Jesus teaches in John #:1-18 that one must be Born Again to ever see the inside of heaven and that only through believing on the Lord Jesus can one be saved. That no other religion is like unto Christianity for only Christianity worships God the Creator, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit as one.

With each passing day, it becomes more and more obvious that true Christianity and secular humanism, heathenism can not exist side by side. For they have less and less common ground every day. And this too fulfills Scripture. For through out the Old Testament, God calls for His people to be separate, as He does again through the writings of Paul.

While the secular heathen world celebrate earth day and halloween, we celebrate Easter as the day the Lord was resurrected from the grave.

Yes, my brothers and sisters, the day fast approaches when, in order to survive, either one society will have to eliminate the other or both societies must agree to be totally separate from one another. For their daughters with their free sex attitude will lead our young men astray every time.

The Lord Jesus, Yeshua Messiah be with you all. And may you this very day decide who you will serve and what price will you pay to do that service, for Yeshua has told us in no uncertain terms that we can serve but one master, we can have but one God, the God of Heaven and Earth, the Creator of all things, or the god of this world satan. You can not serve God and do the things of satan, you can not serve God while living in the midst of the heathen life style, either they must change or you must change, for darkness and light can not share the same space.

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.
Matthew 6:24

Amen.

Just a thought.

As I think back over the last seven plus years of the clinton regime, I can not help but realize that to many coincidences make one realize that some things are done by design.

What I mean is that looking back, I can see a pattern of destruction of the nation flowing from the office of the presidency. We have had our nations military, judiciary, morals, integrity, wealth and honesty dashed to the ground will clinton languishes in the oval office trying to almost daily to subvert and destroy the words and teachings of both God Almighty Himself and the founding fathers in their God inspired Constitution and Declaration of Independence.

I'm not going to list clinton's misdeeds, nor am I going to try and remember every act of treason, for that isn't what is important, what is important is why is he and has he sold this nation that he was elected to protect, down the drain. Why has he worked so hard to undermine our national security, why has he worked so hard to destroy the very moral fiber of the nation?

I am convinced that bill clinton thinks he is the anti Christ. I am becoming more and more convinced that he, in and effort to secure the support of other nations like China and Russia, has traded and given away our very wealth and military superiority to secure their votes in his becoming the head of the UN after leaving the office of president.

I believe that this man has or thinks he has sold his soul to satan, and by his appointment of judges, support of infanticide, reckless and self destroying personal moral and sex life, is paying his tithes and practicing the morals and teachings of his lord satan.

For those of us who read and study Gods Word, the Holy Scriptures, we know that there is but one real anti Christ and that one is already chosen and known to God the Almighty. But to the likes of clinton, they perhaps think they can make themselves into the anti Christ.

Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.
First John 2:18&19

But not to worry, for we who are saved, this time on earth is the closest we will ever come to hell, but for those who serve satan and those who serve him, this time on earth is their heaven.

The Lord Jesus be with you and bless you, may He see you through these end times, amen.

Him too Lord?

Yesterday I was reading a post addressed to a fine Christian lady by a agnostic cuss on the New York Post bulletin board. A board I oft times publish portions of the thought to. And I couldn't help but think this question to myself, "him too Lord, did you bleed so that even this one could be given the opportunity to find salvation through your Blood Jesus?".

And of course the answer to that question is YES. Yes, Jesus bled so that His cleansing and saving Blood could be a shelter for even this agnostic cuss who seems to take great delight in antagonizing and beating up on Christians.

John 3:1-21
Now there was a man of the Perushim named Nakdimon, a ruler of the Yehudim. The same came to Him by night, and said to Him, "Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do, unless God is with him." Yeshua answered him, "Most assuredly, I tell you, unless one is born anew, he can't see the kingdom of God." Nakdimon said to him, "How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb, and be born?"

Yeshua answered, "Most assuredly I tell you, unless one is born of water and spirit, he can't enter into the kingdom of God! That which is born of the flesh is flesh. That which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Don't marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born anew.' The wind blows where it wants to, and you hear its sound, but don't know where it comes from and where it is going. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit."

Nakdimon answered him, "How can these things be?"

Yeshua answered him, "Are you the teacher of Yisra'el, and don't understand these things? Most assuredly I tell you, we speak that which we know, and testify of that which we have seen, and you don't receive our witness. If I told you earthly things and you don't believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things? No one has ascended into heaven, but he who descended out of heaven, the Son of Man, who is in heaven.

As Moshe lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God didn't send His Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not condemned. He who doesn't believe has been condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only born Son of God.

This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light; for their works were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and doesn't come to the Light, for fear that his works would be reproved. But he who does the truth comes to the Light, that his works may be revealed, that they have been done in God."

So, did Yeshua go up on the cross for this miserable cuss at the NY Daily Post? Yes. Unless of course this miserable agnostic is an abortionist. No high priest of baal has ever been shown the opportunity to come to salvation in the Word of God, to days abortionist are the modern high priest of baal, sacrificing children to their god, satan.

May the Lord be with you all today, may He live within you, direct you and keep you protected from the storms without. May God bless you and shelter you, may He hear your ever word and look upon you as His little brothers and sisters. And may it please Him to have a major revival here in the USA, doing away with the abortionists and their followers.

Amen.

Daily Christian thought The day afterFathers day weekend, Monday June 19th, 2000

Well, tis the day after Fathers day...

Ah, what a weekend, Fathers Day, a day that should be every day, but alas it comes but once a year, but what a day. The new tie still hasn't a stain, the shirts have collars without frays and the tee shirts, wow, white, even under the arm pits. Oh how I love Fathers Day.

Well, as you sit there at your computer, reading this and contemplating all the great things you got, ate and did yesterday, wondering, "what can I do to really thank the wife and kids", here's a thought.

Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the LORD your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it: That thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; that thy days may be prolonged. Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.

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

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

And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
Deuteronomy 6:1-9

So, why not pay them back by being their pastor? It's not hard you know. All you need do is read the Bible to them, listen to yourself as you read, try to lead by example, pray with your family daily and stay close to the Bishop of all Bishops, Yehweh, GOD the Father ALMIGHTY, by praying and asking His help.

A really easy way to start would be to get the Daily Bread, a little book with a daily reading and message. If your church doesn't have them, let me know, we will make sure you get one or you could go to our links page and find their site and get one directly from them.

After that, try taking the ordination course at MCAC. You'll find them on the links page as well. The link to the links page is near the bottom of this page.

Try it dads. For your heavenly Father has made it your honor and privilege to be the primary pastor to your family.

The Lord Jesus, Yeshua Messiah be with you all.

Amen.

Daily Christian thought Fathers day weekend June 17th & 18yhth, 2000

Fathers day, wow...

Well, once again we have reached that time of the year that liberals and feminists hate almost as much as they do CHRISTmas and of course their most hated holiday EASTER, or the day the Lord was resurrected by His FATHER.

Since it's the one day of the year in which we celebrate fathers, let us start with the verse fathers love so much.

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
Ephesians 5: 22-24

Ah, was Paul a friend to men or not? Wives listen to Paul, but to Peter as well, for the Apostle Peter tells wives;

Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.
1st Peter 1:1-6

Guys, did you know that some translations translate the word lord in "Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord:" as master. Wow, Peter tells our wives that they should treat us as masters. Not a bad fathers day gift.
But, it get's even better, for God Almighty Himself, the Father Creator says in Genesis 3:16, while disciplining Eve for sinning:
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." "and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee"

So, let us see. Paul tells our wives to submit to us, Peter reinforces it by telling them to treat us like their masters and God Himself has placed within them the desire to serve us. Wow, Happy Fathers day.

And when it comes to the kids, well God tells them in Exodus 20:12
"Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee."

See, it just keeps getting better and better, wives treat your husbands as masters, kids, you want to live a long healthy spiritual life? Obey every word of your dads.

Now, what does God ask of dads in return for all this honoring and submission and stuff? Well, in Ephesians 6 verse 4 Paul tells fathers to not abuse your children, to not yell at them for light and trivial reasons, to not cause them to be wrathful, to not be their best friends, but instead to raise them in the Word of God.

Peter goes on in verse 7 of chapter 1 by telling us:
Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
Life with your wife knowing that she is weaker than you, that she has been instructed by God to obey you, to not take advantage of that for if you abuse your wife or order her to do things that are wrong, God may just turn His back on you and not hear your prayers.

And if that isn't enough, Paul continues in Ephesians 5 with this in verse 25:
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; Ephesians 5:25

Love your wives as Jesus loves the church, do for your wives what Jesus did for the church. Gentlemen, I would have you remember that JESUS never cried out for mercy while He was being betrayed, spit on, slapped, beaten, whipped, tortured, crucified, stabbed with a spear and buried. Nor did He come back three days later and say, "See what I did for you guys".

Gentlemen, today would be a good day to look at your family as Jesus looked on the church as He hung on the cross and cried out to God, "Father forgive them".

May the blood of the Lord Jesus bless you and cleanse you, may He send His Holy Spirit to dwell within you, may He help you to love your kids regardless. May He help you to pray daily for your wives and your kids, may he give you the ability to love your family as God loves us.

One last thing dads. when your wife or your kids does something to upset you, and you look up to heaven and say " Lord what did I do to deserve this?" Think about this; What did Jesus do to deserve what He went through for us?

Amen and happy dads day, Fathers Day.

Oh, and for you young men who are unmarried as of yet, would you like your wife to obey? Your kids to behave? Then raise them in the Word of God. Marry a Born Again Christian girl, look to her to submit, but only if you'll look yourself in the mirror and assure yourself and her that you will do for her and your kids what Jesus did for us and only if you too are a Born Again Christian.

Honesty from the pulpit?????

I have been blessed with two having two of the most solid preachers in the country pastoring churches Cecily and I have attended. First we had Pastor Lester Kringle and when Lester left the Lord brought us to Pastor Warren Fuestal. These two men have given me great insight and have shown me the difference between what a preachers is suppose to be and what I have seen in some less Bible orientated churches. The Lord would be comfortable in church hearing sermons delivered by either of these two men. How do I know? Because they deliver sermons much as the Lord, they address problems from the pulpit much as the Lord did. Neither is willing to compromise the word of God, just as the Lord was unwilling to compromise the word of God. And both os these men rebuke soundly and biblically, just as the Lord did. Let us look at the way Jesus handled liberal preachers that tried to make God's word fit their agenda instead of taking God's word literally. Luke 11:37-54 And as Jesus spake, a certain Pharisee besought Him to dine with him: and Jesus went in, and sat down to meat. And when the Pharisee saw it, he marveled that Jesus had not first washed before dinner. And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness. Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without make that which is within also? But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you. But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them. Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto Him, Master, thus saying thou reproachest us also. And Jesus said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers. Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchers of the prophets, and your fathers killed them. Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchers. Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute: That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation; From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation. Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered. And as Jesus said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge Him vehemently, and to provoke Him to speak of many things: Laying wait for Him, and seeking to catch something out of His mouth, that they might accuse Him. Preachers, preach God's Word as it is written, not as you would like to see it. God says homosexuality is wrong and is punishable by death, not "well that was for then, this is another day". Garbage and you know it. Preach God's word His way or face His wrath. Folks if you're going to and taking your family to a church were the preacher, priest or whatever is trying to make God's Word fit this world, you need to have a talk with him and or find yourself another church, for what is the sense of going to church to hear the words of man instead of the words of God? To hear mans word turn on bill clinton, janet reno, olympia snowe, barney frank and their ilk in the main stream media. The Lord bless and guide you, let Him help you find His word, listen for His directions and follow them. Do not make God's Word fit your agenda, make your life fit God's Word! Read Matthew 5:28, the rules set down by God over the last 6,319 years are just as valid and binding today as they were when He commanded them, for nothing is fulfilled accept those prophecies required of the Jesus to be the Christ. The Lord Jesus, the Messiah Yeshua be with you and may He carry your name to the Father Yahweh this self same day.

We are a strange creation...

Have you ever thought what brings you to your knees the most? Yesterday I was listening to a preacher on the radio, he mentioned how we have a tendency to cry to God when things are bad, but ignore Him when things are good.

That got me to thinking about my life, and sure enough, he was right. When Cecily was really sick and I thought she was going to die, I cried out to God, I begged God, I asked the kids in the church to ask Jesus to let Mrs. Celeste live, and God heard our prayers and Cec is not only alive, she looks ten years younger than her age. Oh, yes, I thanked God for her healing, and it was one of those healing's that you read about in the Bible, for Cec was back to 100% in less than 24 hours, actually we cried out to God at 10AM Sunday and she was back to normal and looking 10 years younger then before she had gotten sick, by 4:30 Monday morning. And I must admit that I was more involved with the prayer when I was asking for her life then I was when I was thanking God for giving her back to me.

On July 10th. 1995 at 11:45 in the morning Cecily and I were in the midst of the White mountains of Maine, when suddenly my stomach exploded, for those of you who understand medical lingo, I had a perforated ulcer, for you ex military grunts, it is much like a gut shot. Two big problems one, we were an hour from the nearest hospital, the second problem was that once there, they didn't know what it was and after six hours of test and the such, they figured it out but, the surgeon that was there had never done a perforated ulcer. During the eight hours or so between the time of the attack and their knocking me out to operate, I did what you would call some very serious praying.

God heard my prayer and here I am today. But, when it came time to thank God, it took a lot less time and even then it was not the open and grateful thanks it should have been, for I was troubled not only with major pain but for six months after, I had no voice. I couldn't speak and the medical community said I would never speak again. I do believe that I spent more time asking God to let me talk again then I did thanking Him for letting me live.

How about you? Are you like me and so many others? Do you save your best prayers for when all else has failed and you have nowhere to turn but to the Creator? What say we take a moment right now to pledge to ourselves that from this day forward we will try desperately to spend time in the morning and time in the evening thanking God seriously and genuinely for all that He has done to make our lives better and for all the prayers He has answered.

May the Lord our God bless you, may He help you to come to Him not only in time of need, but in time of plenty as well.

Are you sometimes at a lose for what to give thanks for?

Let us look at First Corinthians 15:51-58
51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed-- 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: "Death is swallowed up in victory." 55 "O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?" 56 The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. Let us pray: Lord in heaven forgive us for the things we have said, done, thought and dreamt that have offended You, help us Jesus to see the ways You have blessed us and let the Holy Spirit lead us in prayer to thank You for all You have done for us. Forgive us for the times we have treated You with less then the respect due You, the Creator when we thank You for our daily bread, health and families.

Amen.

Yes, Jesus is the Messiah!

But first let me answer a question if I can. Many have asked "How do I know if I'm in a good church?". Can you remember the last time your preacher did a hard hitting sermon condemning pro-marital sex? Adultery? Homosexuality, lesbianism and or abortion? Can you remember the last time your preacher preached hell, damnation and the price paid for not being Saved? Can you remember the last time your preacher told you and the congregation emphatically from the pulpit, "Be born again or you are absolutely going to hell, for that is what Jesus tells us in John 3:1-18." Has he preached, recently, that only through the blood of Jesus is one saved. Has he recently preached on the responsibilities of husbands, wives, moms and dads? Has he recently preached against idiolatry? Are there any statues in your church? Is your preacher a man of God?

If your preacher isn't preaching the Word of God, you need to find another church! In the second chapter of Joel, God is telling His people through the prophet Joel what will happen immediately after the Messiah is crucified as the perfect offering to atone for the sins of Adam and man.

Joel 2:28-32
And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord. And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the Lord Shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, As the Lord has said, Among the remnant whom the Lord calls.

Now do you see?

And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;

That is the Holy Spirit coming upon and within those who are Saved. God obviously knew that some people would claim that Jesus arranged His own death, that He caused Himself to be crucified, they tell us that the things that happened to the Lord were just coincidental, well, here in Joel, God is saying that He will cause these things to happen starting with what happened at Pentecost.

Acts 2
When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord* in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

And there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven. And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together, and were confused, because everyone heard them speak in his own language. Then they were all amazed and marveled, saying to one another, "Look, are not all these who speak Galileans? And how is it that we hear, each in our own language in which we were born? Parthians and Medes and Elamites, those dwelling in Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya adjoining Cyrene, visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabs--we hear them speaking in our own tongues the wonderful works of God." So they were all amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, "Whatever could this mean?"

Others mocking said, "They are full of new wine."

But Peter, standing up with the eleven, raised his voice and said to them, "Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and heed my words. For these are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day. But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: 'AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS IN THE LAST DAYS, SAYS GOD, THAT I WILL POUR OUT OF MY SPIRIT ON ALL FLESH; YOUR SONS AND YOUR DAUGHTERS SHALL PROPHESY, YOUR YOUNG MEN SHALL SEE VISIONS, YOUR OLD MEN SHALL DREAM DREAMS. AND ON MY MENSERVANTS AND ON MY MAIDSERVANTS I WILL POUR OUT MY SPIRIT IN THOSE DAYS; AND THEY SHALL PROPHESY. I WILL SHOW WONDERS IN HEAVEN ABOVE AND SIGNS IN THE EARTH BENEATH: BLOOD AND FIRE AND VAPOR OF SMOKE. THE SUN SHALL BE TURNED INTO DARKNESS, AND THE MOON INTO BLOOD, BEFORE THE COMING OF THE GREAT AND AWESOME DAY OF THE LORD. AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS THAT WHOEVER CALLS ON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED. "Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know-- Jesus, being delivered by the determined purpose and foreknowledge of God, you have taken by lawless hands, have crucified, and put to death; whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death, because it was not possible that He should be held by it. For David says concerning Him: 'I FORESAW THE LORD ALWAYS BEFORE MY FACE, FOR HE IS AT MY RIGHT HAND, THAT I MAY NOT BE SHAKEN. THEREFORE MY HEART REJOICED, AND MY TONGUE WAS GLAD; MOREOVER MY FLESH ALSO WILL REST IN HOPE. FOR YOU WILL NOT LEAVE MY SOUL IN HADES, NOR WILL YOU ALLOW YOUR HOLY ONE TO SEE CORRUPTION. YOU HAVE MADE KNOWN TO ME THE WAYS OF LIFE; YOU WILL MAKE ME FULL OF JOY IN YOUR PRESENCE.'(Psalm 16: 8-11) "Men and brethren, let me speak freely to you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his body, according to the flesh, He would raise up the Christ to sit on his throne, he, foreseeing this, spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that His soul was not left in Hades, nor did His flesh see corruption. This Jesus God has raised up, of which we are all witnesses. Therefore being exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He poured out this which you now see and hear. For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he says himself: 'THE LORD SAID TO MY LORD, "SIT AT MY RIGHT HAND, TILL I MAKE YOUR ENEMIES YOUR FOOTSTOOL.(Psalm 110:1)" "Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ."

Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Men and brethren, what shall we do?"

Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call." And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, "Be saved from this perverse generation." Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.

And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need. So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.

There is no way this could have happened if Jesus were not the Messiah. Only by the Blood of Jesus can you be saved. May the Lord God Almighty help you to understand and may He help you to do His will. Amen.

Daily Christian thought for: Tuesday June 13th, 2000

Well?...

Often times we concentrate on Matthew 24 when discussing and reading the words of the Lord concerning the end times. Today, let us read very carefully the words of the Lord as written by Dr. Luke. At the end of the reading, I have a quick question for you to ponder and answer.

And as Jesus went out of the temple, one of His disciples saith unto Him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here! And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

And as Jesus sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked Him privately, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled? And Jesus answering them began to say,

Take heed lest any man deceive you: For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.

But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them. And the gospel must first be published among all nations. But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.

Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for My name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains: And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house: And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment. But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter. For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days. And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not: For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.

But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near: So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

Watch and think. While the Lord tells us the signs of the times for the beginning of the seven year period called tribulation, He very clearly tells us that none of us knows the exact hour or the day. He tells us, by the description of that time that it could be today, this very second, but it also could be yet hundreds or even thousands of years in the future. Only God knows. But, and this is one really big but. But, if the Lord shouts and raptures His church while you're still alive, what do you want to be doing when He shouts, when He snatches His up and takes us away from what is about to happen?

Do you want to be taken while watching porn on the net? Yelling at your kids? Made at your wife? Looking at the honey down the hall? Having a beer? Smoking a butt? Cussing? I don't think so.

But, what ever it is that you would want to be caught doing, now would be a good time to start living as if the end were coming in the very next micro second. Would you be snatched away? Would your wife and kids? How about your kin? The guy down the street? Perhaps you still have a bit of work to do before the Lord can rapture His bride? Maybe He is waiting for you to do what it is that He has for you to do. Maybe I and others are having to put up with the heathen in the oval office because you refuse to do what the Lord has chosen for you to do and is waiting for you to do. Remember, Jesus will not come back for His church till every should that needs to be given the plan of salvation has be given it.

The Lord bless you all and be ready for He could come at any moment, remember the last word in to days reading, WATCH!

Amen!

Clinton/Agag UN/Amon so what's the difference? or, Where is Samuel when you need him?

Take a moment to think about this first; If you are a vet from Korea, Nam, the Gulf or anywhere in between, the VFW's, American Legions and other vet groups don't really seem to want you. But, Jesus does!

Take a moment to think about it. Clinton sends men of to die to cover up for his sins, Jesus allowed Himself to be beat, tortured, hung on a cross and bleed to death so that your sins could be forgiven.

The words spoken directly by God the Father are in purple.

The words spoken directly by God the Son, the Lord Jesus Christ are in red.

Oh Lord help us to understand Thy will and Thy ways. Teach us Lord to accept Your ways with joy and happiness. Lord in heaven teach us to do the things that You want us to do and help us to appreciate the things You have given us. We thank You Lord for the air we breathe and the water we drink. We thank Thee Lord for all that You have given us and how You so loved us that You gave Yourself so that we could be free from sin and damnation. Please Lord protect us from the evil one, his minions and his ilk and from those who serve him knowingly and unknowingly. We pray this to the Father in the name of the Son.
Oh Lord in heaven I pray that you will help Dave with his seizures and Eileen with her rehab and geoff and his heart problems. Please Lord help them to understand that it only through You that they can be assured both rest and cure. Lord I pray for John and Jimmy and their families. Lord please rescue our nation from the grips of the evil worshipers who have delighted in doing that which is evil in Your sight. Help us Lord to rid ourselves of the abortionist and the sodomite help us Lord to once again become the nation that You would have us be.
Lord thank you for our health and the home you have provided us with.
Amen.

The Sermon on the mount, so just what is the Lord talking about and who is He talking about?

Matthew Chapter 5

1 And seeing the multitudes, Jesus went up into a mountain: and when He was set, His disciples came unto Him:
2 And Jesus opened His mouth, and taught them, saying,
3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

Blessed are the poor in spirit, those who mourn, those who are meek and hunger and thirst after righteousness. Blessed are the merciful, the pure in heart, the peacemakers and those who are persecuted for believing on the Lord Jesus Christ. Friends, the Lord is talking about those who are Born Again. Think for a moment, if you are Born Again, isn't your spirit broken, do you not mourn for the aborted babies, for the wrongs committed in the name of justice and for the things that happen in our schools and to our kids? Do you not hunger to know God? Are you not merciful towards those who have done you harm? Do you not seek to keep your thoughts, your mind and your heart pure and free from evil thoughts? Do you not pray for your enemies? And are you not persecuted, laughed at and discriminated against because of your devotion to the Lord Jesus who is the Christ? Yes my brothers and sisters, it is us who are saved that the Lord is describing and it is us He is talking to.

13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
You, we who are saved, are the light of the world, we are the salt of the earth, we are not to hide our light or let our saltiness get watered down. We are to show people by our actions that we are the lords. We are to show the world by our faith, our character, our values and our virtues that we are the property of Jesus who is the Christ, the Son of the living God. We are not to be like everyone else. We are not to read the stuff the read, watch the trash that they watch on television and in the movies. We are not to worship the scum in politics that they worship. We are not to dress ourselves or our families in the revealing sluttish clothing that they wear. We are to be the light of the world, not just one more hunk of slime.

17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Here Jesus is very clearly telling us that we are still bound to all of the law except for those parts He fulfilled in His coming. So, while we need not do the sacrifices, we are still bound to the moral laws laid down in the first five books of the bible!

19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Most of us think that verse 19 only applies to preachers. Surprise surprise surprise, it applies to any and all that are charged with the teaching of anyone. Parents, politicians, grandparents, cops, everyone. For we are all charged with helping people do what is right in the sight of the Lord and when we don't, we are crossing Him and sinning against God.

20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
The scribes and the pharisees where the learned and scholarly men of the day. They were suppose to be the experts on the dos and don'ts of correct living in the sight of the Lord, but they had become hollow, do as I say not as I do, men who had high esteem for themselves and little or no character or honesty or holder of values and virtues, kind of like the Maine delegation to the Congress and Senate of these United States and he whom they worship and at whose feet they grovel in the oval office. They had become more interested in their own position than practicing what was written in the scriptures. They were men who forced the letter of the law on others, but ignored it completely in their on lives, kind of like Bill Clinton.

21 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

This is important guys, notice that the Lord is telling you that you are not to even be mad at your fellow believers. Not only is it wrong to murder, it is wrong to be mad at or call a fellow believer names. There are some who would have you believe that God uses other Christians to persecute His Christians. Nothing could be further from the truth. For it to be true that God would use one Christian to hurt another Christian would be to make Jesus out to be a liar and that is just not possible. So when someone tells you that they have been persecuted by another Christian at the direction of God , or if they suggest that your persecutions come from fellow believers at the direction of God, rest assured that they are lying. For Jesus Himself has told us that we are not to hold anything against one another! If we can not even be mad at one another or call one another names, how could we ever persecute or intentionally harm one another?

23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there remember that thy brother hath ought against thee;
24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

If you know of anything a fellow believer has against you, drop everything and go and make amends. Apologize and ask for his or her forgiveness. Asking for forgiveness is even more important than tithing. Bet you never heard that in any liberal churches. But Jesus tells us to leave our gifts at the alter and go make amends with those we have offended, and then come and make thy offer.

25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.
26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

Adversary is not the same as brother. Adversary mostly referrs to those who are un believers or non Christians, so settle things even with non believers as quickly as you can. Try not to go to court, for in court you are at a disadvantage. For the unbeliever has no scruples that prevent him or her from lying in court and fabricating evidence. But you must be honest and your being honest in court will almost certaily result in your being found guilty. Think of the news stories of how the FBI fabricated evidence in their labs to convict those they arrested, guilt or innocense is not important to our judical system. What is important is conviction ratios. Think how this congress and this senate would not remove a corrupt president from office because he was such a good liar. And they are obviously impressed by his ability to constantly lie and decieve.

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

29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

While liberal theologians will tell you that it does not mean literally to pluck out your eye or cut of your arm, think about this for a moment. Jesus Christ created the world, He created man and everything in the heavens and on earth. He created us and our brains. Do you not think Him smart enough to say exactly what He means and mean exactly what He says in His own book? Ask the liberal what he has created today before you take his word over that of the Lord.
Look, if you are finding impossible to stop spying and selling secrets to China, it is better to pluck out your eyes than be guilty of helping China to destroy millions. It is better for you to cut of your arm than to continue as a FBI sniper killing innocent women and children. For it is better that you have only one arm than to kill a mother while she nurses her 11 month old baby. If you have a corrupt child within your family or a corrupt preacher in your church, it is better to get rid of them than allow them to take the entire family or congregation to hell with them.

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

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

In other words, you need not say anything other than yes or no, you should not have to say anything other than yes I will do something or no I will not do something. To do anymore than that is to be like the heathens that need to say more for their word is worth nothing.

38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
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.
40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.
41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
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;
45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?

It is easy to love your friends and hate your enemies, it is hard to love both and to pray for both. But what better way to turn your enemies into friends than to pray for them? For if they, your enemies, are converted and become born again Christians, they will no longer be your enemies, but will instead be your brothers. Is it not much better to have a world full of brothers than a world full of enemies. Would our country not be much better off if we exported missionaries and Christianity rather than abortion and nukes?

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

Matthew Chapter 6

1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
3
4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

In to days world we would say, don't tithe by check, looking for a statement of thanks for your generosity, but instead fold up your tithes and place cash in the basket. So that none now the giver nor the amount, except your Father in heaven who sees what you do in private and rewards you openly. Openly you ask? Yes openly. Think of the times the Lord has intervened on your behalf, perhaps an auto accident that could have been worse or a near miss that left not even a dent or scratch. How about the illness that could have been worse or for that matter, never even took place. Do you take your good health for granted? Yes, God the Father does reward openly, so openly that most of us don't even realize that he has rewarded us.

5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
hummmmm, vain repetitions, look, when you have to repeat the same thing over and over, don't you start to wonder about the persons intelligence that has to have the same thing repeated over and over? When your dealing with someone really sharp, how many times do you have to repeat yourself to be understood by them? So, why would you want to pray in a repetitious manner? Do you think God needs to be told over and over before He will understand what it is your praying for? When you repeat the same canned prayer over and over what you are doing is insulting God, the creator of you and all things.

8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask Him.
Don't be like the heathens, just come to the Father in prayer through the Son and thank Him and ask Him to forgive you and ask Him for those things you need to pray to Him about.

9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Do you see verse 11, "Give us this day our daily bread." Daily bread, that is not just the bread like food, it is mainly the bread of life, God's word. Look here:
Matthew 4:3-4 3 And when the satan came to Jesus, satan said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
4 But Jesus answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

So, when your praying, ask not only for food for the body, but for food for the soul and spirit as well.

16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;
18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.

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

22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
You can not serve both this government and it's evil desires and the Lord Jesus Christ! For this government calls upon you to sacrifice yourself and your family to cover up it's sins, while the Lord Jesus Christ sacrificed Himself to cover and pay for your sins. This government and the Lord Jesus Christ are as far apart as that in which they represent, evil and good. Serve Jesus! Look,
Luke 12:4-5 4 And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.
5 But I will forewarn you of whom ye shall fear: Fear Him, which after He hath killed hath power to cast you into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear Him.

Don't fear this hollow, cowardly and corrupt infanticidal government, for what can Bill Clinton and his minions do to you but kill your body? But fear and love God. For God can kill the body and then toss it into hells fires for all eternity. Serve God, despise mammon!

25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Verse 33 sums it up nicely, serve God and God will take care of you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
Don't worry about tomorrow, there are enough things to worry about today. Tomorrow will take care of itself. If you take care of to days problems today, to morrows problems won't be any where near as bad as they will be if you spend today worrying about tomorrow and as a result ignoring the fixing of to days problems

Matthew Chapter Seven

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

This is one of the most misquoted verses in the entire Bible. You will commonly hear liberals telling you that "you should judge not lest you be judged." Garbage, what the lord is telling us is to judge not the exterior of the man, but to judge ones heart and deeds. Do you think for even a moment that the Lord wants you to hang around with rapist and druggies? Do you think He wants you to let your 14 year old daughter go out with a 45 year old pimp? Do you think He would want you to send your teen son to work for Congressmen Baldacci or Frank? Do you think He would want you sending your daughter or wife to spend a week end with the likes of Senators Susan Collins or Olympia Snowe or Bill Clinton? Of course not, the Lord wants you to judge, but He wants you to judge a man or woman by their deeds and actions, not their looks. He wants you to check on the OBGYN before sending your wife to that doctor when she is pregnant. The Lord doesn't want you entrusting your wife or your baby into the hands of a butcher who performs abortions. You are to judge, you are simply to judge others the same way that you would want them to judge you.

3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

Here the Lord is saying the same thing, don't judge your brothers minor faults while you are running around with major sin in your own heart. Don't beat up on the guy who smokes a few butts and has a bottle a beer at night while your a hundred pounds overweight from eating donuts and twinkies. Don't be so critical of the guy who misses an occasional Sunday to go bass fishing while your investment portfolio includes insurance companies that fund abortion and your still using AT&T, MCI or Sprint for your long distance calls. First loose the hundred pounds, clean up your investment portfolio, get Life Line or one of the other Christian long distance carriers and then talk to your brother about his smoking and cold beers.

6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
Now what the Lord is telling us here is not to cast what is Holy before swines. What is Holy is you, the Born Again Christian, swines are the secular world. What the Lord is saying is don't degrade yourself by becoming like the secular world, don't hang around in their bars, don't wear their immodest clothing, don't feed your children the garbage of their books like Goose Bumps and Steven King. Don't watch the trash on tv and the pornography of Madison Ave ads. In other words, separate yourself from the world as much as you possibly can. Remember, this is not your home, you are simply visiting here. Your home is in heaven with God! For if you take your Holy self and hang around in secular places, the secular world will rip you apart and destroy that which is Holy within you.

7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

If you go to the Father through the Son and ask for forgiveness and acceptance, the Father is sure to both forgive and accept. All you have to do to get into heaven is believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, invite Him into your heart, give yourself to Him and ask Him to forgive your sins by first admitting that you are both unworthy and a sinner.

9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

Look, here the Lord is proving to you what He said in verses 7&8, He is telling us that if we as sinning, imperfect human fathers can and will do good things for our sons, how much more good things will our perfect and heavenly Father in heaven give us. If we the humble creations can give our kids good things and delight in helping them, how much more will the Creator give to those whom He loves and who have accepted His offer of salvation.

12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
Therefore, do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Or more accurately,
Leviticus 19:17-18<
BR> 17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.
18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.

13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

The road to heaven is narrow, the road to hell is broad and paved with good intentions.

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
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.

You don't need me to elaborate on this, you know exactly what the Lord is saying here. If the preacher is telling you it's all right to abort your babies, he is a false teacher and a liar! If he tells you it is all right to have a homosexual or lesbian relationship, he is a liar and if you do it your going to hell, for God tells us what He thinks of sodomites.

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:
25 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:

Got it? Abide by the Words of Jesus and you are a wise man living in a stone house with a foundation built into the core of the earth, that is literally unshakable and indestructible. Live by the words of Clinton, Gore and the rest of the satan worshiping child killing murderous adulterers that call themselves main stream America and our leaders and your spiritual home is one built of sand with no foundation just waiting for a good rain storm.
27 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:
29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

The people knew that Jesus wasn't just the average preacher or rabbi, for He taught them as one who had written the book, not as one who was just reading it and trying to understand it. Yet they did not accept Him. What a shame for them, don't let the same thing happen to you. Accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour and spend eternity in Heaven with Him and the Father and me! Reject Him or do nothing and you spend eternity in hell with satan, his minions his ilk and those who serve him knowingly and unknowingly. For if you reject the offer of salvation offered to you by God the Father through the death of His Son Jesus, God the Son, than you become one of those who serves satan knowingly if you are one who just does nothing, neither accepts nor rejects, just goes about your merry bussiness as though all was well, you become one who unknowingly serves satan. For the default is hell!

Don't be a fool, serve Him who died for you, not him who would have you die for him. Look, we are all going to spend eternity somewhere, either in heaven or in hell, as for my wife and I we are going to heaven, where are you and your wife going? I want to tell you something. Do you think Stephen King writes scary books and tells scary tales? Well, compared to what happens during the seven years of tribulation, Kings stories are like nursery rhymes! And let me add just this one more thing, those of you who are unsaved, and end up in hell, well even if I know you really well and spend tons of time praying for you, if you don't accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour and as a result you end up in hell, it will not cost me a nights sleep or even one tear. Do you know why? I'll tell you. Better yet, I'll let you read it for yourself.

The Book of Revelation 21:3-8
3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
5 And He that sat upon the throne said,
Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
6 And He said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be My son.
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Got it? God will wipe away all of my tears and I will have no sorrow, that among other things means that I will have no memory of all of you here on earth who are unsaved and end up in hell. Like Wayne the guy who runs the porno book store on Route 26 in Oxford, Maine where I held a two month prayer vigil. Teacjers in schools who teach kids that homosexuality, lesbianism, abortion and other sins are ok. Clinton, snowe, baldacci, frank and allen along with others that make perjury less of a crime than spitting on the sidewalk. Well, if Wayne and the others decide to continue to follow satan and ignore and reject the Lord, they go to hell. Now I've spent a lot of time praying for Wayne, but if he doesn't make it, I will have no memory of him whatsoever. But for all those who do make it to heaven, well them I will know immediately. But look again at verse 8. Do you see what happens to those who are not saved? Jesus Christ, God, says that He is going to toss them into an eternal hell, a lake of burning fire.

Don't be a fool, ignore Clinton and the UN. Follow the Lord Jesus Christ. Do you think for even one minute there is two hoots worth of difference between Clinton and Agag? Do you think there is any difference between the politics and believes of the UN and the Amalekites? If God sent Samuel back right now, do you think Samuel would treat Clinton any different than he treated Agag? The only difference might be that Samuel might use a more modern sword, one made from the finest surgical steel of West Germany. But then again, he might just use the same one he used on Agag.
Praise God!

In closing let me just add this:

Remember, there are only two types of people in the world, the Saved and the unsaved. For those of us that are Saved, this time on earth is the closest we will ever come to hell! But for those who are unsaved, this time on earth is the closest they will ever come to heaven!

For we who are Saved will spend eternity in heaven with the Lord, where there will be no suffering, pain, sorrow or illness. We will bask in the Light of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Father and the Holy Spirit. But, those who are unsaved will spend eternity in hell with satan, in outer darkness, with no light and with the constant roaring of the burning pit and the cries of the other tortured souls that are there and the pain of constant fire that will never ever end!

God be with you! Amen

Weather guesser reads prophecy?

Today's headline on the Drudge report is:

Earth will be hot, humid and disease-ridden... The story goes on to say:

Rising Temps Forecast Changes

By H. JOSEF HEBERT, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) - Alpine meadows will disappear, along with many coastal wetlands and barrier islands. Cities will be hotter and more humid. Ski runs will be scarcer, the demand for air conditioners will increase, and scientists will have to combat a likely resurgence in insect-borne diseases such as malaria. This is the weather forecast for the late 21st century, when average U.S. temperatures will have risen by 5 degrees to 10 degrees. ...

And on it goes, kind of amazing isn't it. Either these weather guessers and this associated press writer are reading the words spoken by Jesus of the end times or, we are living in a time when even the heathen can see the writing on the wall.

For the Lord Jesus has said:

4 And Jesus answered and said to them:
"Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many.

6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.

13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. Mathew 24: 4-14

Brothers and sisters in the Lord, don't wait for the weather guessers, think and act as if the end is within the next ten minutes, is there someone you should be giving the message of salvation to? Remember, someone thought enough of you to show you the message of salvation, shouldn't you do the same?

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

Thank you for your patience, we had a major computer breakdown, resulting in the need to reformat the hard drive and reload everything, This created some real problems with older software.

Fathers, ....

Yesterday I subbed in a sixth grade class, these are youngsters 12 and 13 who are on there way to Junior high next year. Let me tell you dads, your babies have discovered the opposite sex! Not only that, the sex education they have recieved in the kiddie kennel you call the public school system, and fund with your hard earned dollars, has taught them some things you should be aware of.

They have taught your daughters that it is all right for them to ask boys out. Now if you're smilling and thinking to yourself, "oh isn't that cute...", think again, they are only 12 and 13 years old. Next year in Junior high your kids will be taught that homosexuality and lesbianism are nothing more than "acceptable alternative life styles." Tell me something, when are you going to get involved? When do you figure you're going to sit your kids down and instill God's values in them? How about after the second or third abortion? Maybe after the belly button gets peirced and your kid has had enough of same sex sex? When dad's? When?

By the way, the school I subbed in yesterday is one of the better, less liberal schools in the country. We are blessed with a superintendant that may very well be a closet Laodicean Christian. But let me tell you, even in this school system, the junior high is not the place you want your girls and boys being taught values, not unless, you want them to learn the values of Olympia Snowe and Bill Clinton. The values of Barney Frank and his near and dear buddy , "The fella from Maine".

Let's look at the teachings of Paul for a moment, and let us spend some time praying that it is not to late to turn your daughter from being one of those in verse six. If you'll put your foot down now, I'll join you in prayer for her, but without your guidance as her dad, not her best friend, she will grow up to be just one more woman described in verse six. And she'll be a woman by the time she enters 10th grade.

1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!
6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

8 Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; 9 but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was.

But dads this doesn't have to happen, read how Paul tells us how to avoid the trap of the end times, set by satan. The trap laid by satan to decieve your kids and deprive them of salvation.

10 But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra--what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Teach your kids Scripture, help them understand that there are absolute rights and wrongs, and most important, take them out of the public schools system and home school them. No more excuses, no more lies, home schooled students, which make up less than 4% of the population of students, won first, second and third places at the national spelling bees, they are taking prizes in every field except how to put on a condom and the political correct lies of homosexuality and other sins.

Either confess to yourself and God Almighty that you just want to be rid of your kids, you just want them out of the house and let someone else be their parents for 8 to 10 hours a day or home schools them. If you continue to send your sons and daughters to kiddie kennels and your daughter grows up to fill the bill of verse six, it is your fault and God will not hold you harmless.

Yesterday's thought dealt with the good works that prove one is saved as articulated by the brother of the Lord, James. Today it is time to face the music, are you going to do the important good works of loving and caring for your sons and daughters by being their parents? By home-schooling? OR are you going to continue hiding in the dark and sending them off to be corrupted? If you're not going to home school, then face the fact that in all probability, you are not saved. And what you have to look folward to is: Jesus saying, "...I never knew you..." Not, "Welcome good and faithful servant." You can not have it both ways, you can not have the path to salvation and send your kids to a system that teaches them to spit in God's face. You send your kids to public school and you send your kids to be educated by satan. And that is not the fruits of a good tree!

God bless you if you love your children enough to put them and their education and future first, God deal with you and rescue your kids from you if you don't.

Amen.

Daily Christian thought for: Wednesday June 7th, 2000

By your works.....

To often we hear folks say, "Once saved, always saved." Now, while that statement is about 99% correct, it leaves to much room for wiggle. Today, we will look at the Book of James, the half brother of the Lord Jesus.

James, once he realized who Jesus was, no longer introduced himself as James, the brother of Jesus, but instead: James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ. Let see how this "servant of God", tells us how we will know that we are indeed saved.

James 2:1-26
1 My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons. James is not telling us to not have faith in Jesus, but to be as He was, not a respecter of persons. 2 For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment; 3 And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool: 4 Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts? Are you not being a respecter of persons? Are you not judging a book by it's cover?

5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him? 6 But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats? 7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called? Think about it, who are your friends? Who oppresses you? Is not bill clinton one who wears gold rings and fancy clothes? Janet reno, olympia snowe, barnmey frank? Yet, they are the ones our society pays respect to. Think of the rich, and then think of the Vietnam combat vet who had lost both legs and after a divorce, was forced to live in a box. If clinton entered your church one Sunday morning and that smelly vet entered, which would you want to sit beside you and yours?

8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: 9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. 10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. 11 For He, Jesus, that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law. 12 So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty. 13 For He shall have judgment without mercy, on that one who hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment. As you judge others, so will the Lord judge you, and remember, Jesus knows your heart, He knows whether you are saved or not.

14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? 17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Let that sink in, Jesus tells us that you will know a man by his works, by telling us that you will know a tree by it's fruits, a good tree puts out only good fruits, a bad tree can not put out good fruit.

18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. As you can not work your way into heaven, neither can you be saved and turn away the hungry, the cold, the destitute.

19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. 20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? 23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. 24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. 25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? 26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

The proof of ones salvation is the desire of that person to serve the Lord and be as much like the Lord as possible, would Jesus walk by one that cried out for help? For food? For water? Of course not. And if you are really saaved, neither can you. Notice, Abraham had faith, he had so much faith in God that he knew it was God telling him to sacrifice his only son, and by Abraham's works, his willingness to take Issac up on the mountain, to place him on the wood for the fire, to take out his knive and start to kill his only true son, was proof by his works that he put God first.
Would you even sacrifice your cat or dog?

Would Jesus send your kids to a public school?

By your works are you known. The Lord Jesus, the Messiah be with you this day and pray for our brothers and sisters, pray for our nation, our pastors and mostly pray and thank Jesus for what He did.
Amen.

Daily Christian thought for: the weekend of June 3,4 &5, 2000

Once Saved, always Saved, BUT...

In John 3:1-18 We read the words of the Messiah. He is telling us that He died so that we would have the ability to choose. We could and can chose Life with Him, the Father, the Holy Spirit and the saints who have gone before us for all eternity in heaven. OR, we can use that same freedom of choice, that the Lord shed His blood for, to choose eternity in utter darkness, hell.

Let us assume that you have exercised your freewill to accept the offer of salvation that the Lord bled for, that you are a Born Again Christian, true and absolute. Does it mean that satan can no longer get you back? Does that mean that satan can no longer use you?

Well, satan can never get you back, for once you are the Lord's you are the Lord's. But satan can still use you, and this is what every Born Again believer must be constantly aware of and on his or her toes to avoid. What satan can do is put a Christian in a position to where he can whisper in the ear of a non believer who is searching, "See. He's a Christian and he .....".

Let me give you some examples; Let's say you're a Sunday school teacher, you can almost bet that if you lose your temper with someone outside of the Sunday school, in a grocery store, the park, or anywhere, one of the kids or one of their parents will be close by to see it. Maybe it will be unseen by you, but you and your behavior will be seen by someone who knows that you are Christian, someone that satan can whisper in their ears, "See. He's a Christian and he .....".

Perhaps you are a Christian who happens to be a police officer, and you surccumb to the temptation of taking a free donut or lunch from someone, you can be sure that while your saying yes and thank you, satan is whispering in the ear of one seeking, "see. he's a Christian and he .....".

No, satan can never get you back, and he knows that, but he can use you. He can use you every time you backslide, a little of God forbid, a lot. Jesus has told us that:

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16.

You, we, the Born Again Christian community, are the light of the world. What we do others watch. They watch us when we do what is right in the sight of the Lord and they watch us when we do what is wrong. Parents, when your children bring home an unsaved friend, your behavior and theirs must reflect Christ. You must be aware that a soul that could be led to the Lord is in your care for the moment. Do not give satan a chance to whisper into that child's ear, "See. He's a Christian and he .....".

Adults, be aware that teens watch and copy your behavior. When you are dealing with a member of the opposite sex who is not your husband or wife, not only is Jesus watching your behavior, body language and listening to your every word, so is a teen. Don't give satan a chance to whisper "See. He's a Christian and he ....." into that child's ear. Don't cause He who bled so that you could be free, to cry.

As we enter this weekend, let us attempt to think of these things and more. Before you buy your daughter clothing, think, is the clothing intended to shield her from the elements, the weather, or is it designed to entice members of the opposite sex to drool? Remember the neighbor down the street. Don't give satan a chance to whisper in their ear "See. They're Christians and they let their daughter show her belly button...".

Guys, when your at work and someone tells a dirty joke, instead of laughing or even just turning away, remember the words of Robert E. Lee. When a man in his company called Gen. Lee and a few others together, looked around and said "I wanted to make sure there were no ladies close by, I want to tell you a joke...", General Lee didn't laugh at the joke, nor did he simply walk away. He said: "Sir, might I remind you, there are Christian gentlemen present." No joke was told and satan could whisper nothing in the ears of those around him.

I'm going to leave you with this, There was a man, who was (and is) born again, he is the property of the Lord Jesus. But one day this man was using his computer on the net, opened up his e-mail and there was one of those too often x rated unsolicited e-mails with an x-rated link. This time, he clicked the link. Moments later came up this picture of a very young girl doing soemthing that made him suck in his breath. Before he clicked it off, and bear in mind, it wasn't up more than ten seconds before he clicked the x button and got rid of it. He heard a noise behind him. When he turned, he saw his 12 year old son and his unsaved neighbor's son looking over his shoulder, at the monitor. He could hear satan yelling in his neigbor's son's ear "See. He's a Christian and he .....".

May the Lord Jesus bless you all, may He help you to avoid giving satan any chance to use you or put you in a position where he can whisper in a persons ear, "See. He's a Christian and he .....".

If the NEA, never reads anything else ...

If the National Association of Educators never reads anymore of the Word of God then this, this they should read and heed these words of God.

Genesis chapter one:
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, ...

God created man and said go forth and multiply! God could have gone on and said, "by multiplying, you will have plenty of children and schools will have plenty of children and the nea will need to supply many many teachers," ensuring their future. But alas, He didn't, perhaps He figured those who rule the nea would be smart enough to realize that schools need two things to exist, kids and teachers. Take away either and all you have is a building with a bunch of adminstrators running around, but not in any sense a school. No kids, no need for teachers, no teachers, no need for the nea.

But, what does the nea support? Homosexuality, abortion and even the laying with animals. Three methods guaranteed never ever to produce children, the life blood of the education business. Those in the nea and politics, as well as those in the abortion industry and practicing homosexuals think they are spitting in the face of God with their killing babies in the womb, sodomizing one another and condoning women laying with women, men with men, men with animals and animals with women. They are not! God is spitting in their faces! For He has closed up their wombs, He has answered our prayer to be rescued from the evil that is homosexuality and abortion by closing up their wombs, by hardening their hearts and causing them kill their seed, their posterity, their babies, their future.

Read what God has to say about the baby in the womb and about homosexuality and the act of knowing an animal.

Leviticus 20:13 homosexuality and lesbianism,
If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.

Leviticus 20: 1-5 abortion, infanticide, hurting ones baby in or out of the womb.
Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, "Again, you shall say to the children of Israel: 'Whoever of the children of Israel, or of the strangers who dwell in Israel, who gives any of his descendants to Molech, he shall surely be put to death. The people of the land shall stone him with stones. I will set My face against that man, and will cut him off from his people, because he has given some of his descendants to Molech, to defile My sanctuary and profane My holy name. And if the people of the land should in any way hide their eyes from the man, when he gives some of his descendants to Molech, and they do not kill him, then I will set My face against that man and against his family; and I will cut him off from his people, and all who prostitute themselves with him to commit harlotry with Molech.

Leviticus 20: 15&16 knowledge of animals.
If a man mates with an animal, he shall surely be put to death, and you shall kill the animal. If a woman approaches any animal and mates with it, you shall kill the woman and the animal. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood is upon them.

Yet, all of these things are condoned and even encouraged by the nea, these things that God condemns and that is the key, God condemns these things. We as a nation have not shown the courage to end these behaviours, but we have shown the courage to pray to God to end them, and that is precisely what God is doing. He is ending them by closing up the wombs of the liberals by causing these heathen satan worshipping whoresto kill their babies, keep in mind, He who created you can also destroy you, and further more, read in Exodus 20: what God does to those children of those who hate Him by doing things that He hates.

Exodus 20:3-5 Gods vengence upon the children of those who hate Him,
You shall have no other gods before Me. "You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, ...

When people practice, condone, encourage, recruit for and teach the things that God hates, they are not doing His will, but satan's. And that dear brothers and sisters, heathens, pagans and nea members is called idolatry.

God the Father is rescuing us by attrition, He is riding the world of the abortionist, the homosexual, the lover of animals by both closing up their wombs and by hardening their hearts towards their own seed and causing them kill their seed, their babies.

Fear God not man, fear he who created you, not the punk in the oval office. Jesus said it like this:
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28

While the leftist kill their babies, and practice sexual perversions that result in death through disease, condemnation and hell instead of children. The Born Again Christian community is having more and more kids, these kids will grow up to vote. These children are being homeschooled and taught in Christian schools, they are attending church and are being taught Gods Word and the constitution. They will not be voting for socialism, communism, democrats or cowardly two faced lying republicans, they will be voting Pro-Christ, Pro-Life, Pro-Constitution. Why 30 years from now, I could be elected president and bill clinton would be hung for treason.

Yes, God has blessed America, yes He has heard our prayers and yes He is rescuing us. The Lord Jesus, Yeshua bless your name before Yahweh. May He continue to close the womb of the leftist that hates Him and may He make fruitful the womb of His believers, His choosen ones, the Born Again Christians, both of the jews and the gentiles. May God bless you who are Saved and may he have pity on you who are heathens, may He open your eyes and sotften your hearts before it is to late.

And may He protect my brother Mac from the storm of fire around him, may He let the rains come, not for the good of the heathen, but for the protection of just one of His least, my brother and fellow saint, His bond servant, Mac.

Amen
