CPR for Salvation


Have you ever wondered what you would do if you came across an auto accident, or were in a hospital or anywhere where someone was on the verge of death and you were the only one around? Do you have any idea what you would say to that person? I'm not talking about doing CPR or something in the first aid category to save their physical life, I'm asking if you know what Scripture you should have on the tip of your tongue to lead that person to Christ and salvation as their life blood drains away.

No?

Well, you're in good company, for not many who are Born Again do know what they should do under those circumstances. So, let us look and see.

You will start with 5 verses from John 3. Verses 3 & 14-18 and then go to a 6 verses in Romans 10, verses 8-13.

With these 11 verses, you will be able to quote both the Lord on why one must be Born Again and Paul on how to be Born Again and therefore Saved.

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

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: So that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God the Father so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus, so that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. For, he that believeth on Jesus is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3: 14-18 ACPNKJV

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

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH ON HIM SHALL NOT BE ASHAMED. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon Him.

FOR WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED. Romans 10: 8-13 ACPNKJV

After quoting those 11 verses of Scripture, you can do one of two things, if time is really short, just ask them to confess Jesus is Lord and pray for the best, but if you have a few more moments, you can say.

"Jesus has told us that He and God the Father are one, He tells us that in John 10:30, for He says: ‘I and my Father are one.' He also tells us that no one will even see the inside of heaven if they are not Born Again Christians. Jesus further tells us that being Born Again is an individual choice, each must do it for themselves, but if not done, the result is eternal damnation.

Paul has taught us that to be Saved is simply a matter of believing that Jesus is God and then saying that out loud. That all a person must do is accept Jesus by saying ‘Yes Lord I believe that You are the Son of the Living God, that You came to earth to shed Your blood for my redemption, please forgive me for the things I have said, done, thought and dreamt that have offended Thee, come into my heart, be my Lord, Master and Saviour. And take over my life. Thank You Lord for saving me'."

That is pretty much your first aid kit for salvation. Now comes the difficult part, you need to be so comfortable with this that you can say it while praying for the Holy Spirit to take the hardness from this persons heart, the wax from his ears and the blindness from his eyes, for while you quote Scripture, it is only the Holy Spirit that can convict a person and lead them to salvation. One great way to get it down pat is to practice with someone else, like your wife and kids, someone at church, a friend or relative perhaps.

But, how then shall they call on Him, in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? As it is written, HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THEM THAT PREACH THE GOSPEL OF PEACE, AND BRING GLAD TIDINGS OF GOOD THINGS! But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah saith, LORD, WHO HATH BELIEVED OUR REPORT? So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10: 14-17 ACPNKJV

And Jesus said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. For he that believes and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believes not shall be damned. Mark 16:15&16 ACPNKJV

The Lord our God be with you all this day, may He bless you and help you to be a blessing to one other this very day. God bless you all.

Amen.

What about homosexuality?


We have a vice president whose daughter is a lesbian, we have members of congress who are openly homosexual in both parties and we have lesbians openly defending that life style in the US Senate.

We have so called Christian churches marrying and ordaining openly homosexual men and lesbian women. Do you realize there is not one verse of scripture authorizing the ordination of any woman and these churches ordain openly homosexual women.

But how does God feel about this?

For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. Romans 1:26&27 KJV

Paul is talking about the end times in his letter to the Romans, he is talking about right now. Look at the way he starts these two verses, "...God gave them up unto vile affections..." God has given homosexuals and lesbians up. He has washed His hands of them so to speak. Does that mean they can not come back to the Lord? Does that mean they can not be saved? NO! But, it does mean that in the eyes of the Lord homosexuality and lesbianism are not acceptable alternative life styles, they are an abomination in His sight.

Regardless of what the Episcopalian bishops say, regardless of the words of the Vice President, congress, the senate and the ministers and bishops of the UCC, Methodist, American Baptist and every other denomination that ordains, marries of even accepts the life style of homosexuality, in the eyes of the Lord, homosexual and lesbian behavior is not gay, it is repugnant.

You will never lead a homosexual to Christ by condoning his or her behavior, and you will never keep your children away from this disgusting practice if you call them gays, for the Lord God never calls them gay and neither should you, there is nothing gay about men sodomizing each other or the filth in which two women do to one another.

Let us pray for our children, let us pray for our nation and let us work diligently with our voices, our prayers, and our votes to wipe this plague from our homes, our soil, our politics, our schools and our churches.

The Lord be with you all and may you work diligently through your positions as dads, to assure that none of yours become that which is repugnant and evil in the sight of the Lord.

God be with and bless you all this day.

Amen.

God forgive me...


Have you ever called on a home where the people inside were so ugly, so fat, so bad to look upon that you didn't invite them to your church? Where you were so upset by their appearance and the mess and filth within their home that you instead of inviting them to your fundamental Gospel preaching church, instead encouraged them to go to the local liberal UCC church?

Well, that was me this last Monday. The Lord gave me the opportunity to be in a home where the beer cans littered the house, they had no running water, nor hot water, they had no stove, just a micro wave to cook on. I couldn't sit down because there was not a clean uncluttered chair or space within the confines of this 30 year old trailer.

Jesus had given me the opportunity to preach the Gospel and I instead chose to send them to the local church of Laodicea, God forgive me.

As I listened to them complaining about life and their electric bill, the smell of their breath, the rot on their teeth and the language disgusted me so that I all wanted to do was leave. God forgive me.

As I drove away, the shame I felt for myself was almost overpowering, but not overpowering enough to turn me around and send me back. God forgive me.

And these verses keep coming to mind.

¶ And it came to pass, that, when Jesus was returned, the people gladly received Him: for they were all waiting for Him. And, behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus' feet, and besought Him that He would come into his house: For he had one only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she lay a dying. But as He went the people thronged Him.

And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, Came behind Jesus, and touched the border of His garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with Him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched Me?

And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.

And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before Him, she declared unto Him before all the people for what cause she had touched Him, and how she was healed immediately. And Jesus said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace. Luke 8:40-48 ACPNKJV

What do you think this woman looked like? How do you think she smelled, imagine her appearance, her breath, her clothing, how filthy they must have been, yet the Lord looked upon her with love.

¶ And there came a leper to Jesus, beseeching Him, and kneeling down to Him, and saying unto Him, If Thou wills, thou can make me clean.

And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth His hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.

And as soon as Jesus had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed. And Jesus straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away; Jesus Didn't charge the man money, He told the man not to tell anyone how this had happened. For Jesus said to him, See thou say nothing to any man: but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

But the leper went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert places: and they came to Him from every quarter. Mark 1:40-45 ACPNKJV

Can you imagine what this leper must have looked like, with half of his body eaten away? Can you imagine the filth he must have been dressed in since lepers were not allowed into the cities, and picture in your mind what those must have looked like that sought the Lord to be healed after the leper told every one what had happened to him and how he had been healed.

While I was in that trailer, a golden retriever came in, he obviously belonged to the folks I found so disgusting, yet, his tail never stopped, he couldn't kiss the people in the house enough, he had no trouble lying down at their feet and guarding and loving them, attentive to every word and only living for the time they snap their fingers for him to come to be patted or have his fur ruffled. That dog, is and was more like Christ than I. God forgive me!

What about you? When God gives you the opportunity to witness to someone, to invite them to your church, to tell them of the love of Jesus, are you like me or the golden retriever?

I pray you are more like the dog than me, for Christ looked at the woman with the issue of blood, not with disgust, but with love, He didn't look at the leper while holding His nose and wishing to be somewhere else, no, He reached out and cleansed the man.

OH Lord, help me to see every individual you give me the opportunity to witness, to as their dog sees them.

And Lord, please forgiove me.
Amen.

What is love?


How often has it been asked, "how do I prove my love"? How does a non Christian prove his or her love for a another? I don't know?

But how does a Christian boy prove his love for a Christian girl? Or a Christian girl prove her love for a Christian boy? That I do know, for the Lord has told us over and over again how we must deal with one another.

But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; Colossians 3:8&9

Do not lie to the one you love, do not do anything to cause her or him to be unchaste. Prove your love by talking, holding when one is hurt, comforting, laughing together, helping one an other, but not touching intimately or suing your advantage to compromise his or her virginity. How do you prove your love? You wait till marriage to touch or even see the one you loves nudity.

Yes girls you can hold him when he is hurt, you can comfort him in times of stress, but you must not do it in such a manner as to drive him into a fit of lust. You can dress attractively, you can do your hair and smile shyly. But you are not to dress in such a way that entices him to stare with lust or strain to see parts that should be reserved for the wedding night.

Boys you can help her and love her, you can hold her when she cries, but you are to do nothing that will cause her to sin against God, you are to do nothing that might result in her being faced with either having a child out of lust or bringing that baby in the womb to the alter of baal as a sacrifice to satan. You are to do nothing that causes her pain, suffering, tears or compromises her virginity.

I know it is hard, but I also know this, love is hard, proving love is even harder. And for two to remain true to God has never been easy nor will it be easy till the day we are with Him. But, remember this: As you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in and with Him:

Rooted and built up in Him, and established in His faith, as you have been taught, living in and gathering strength from Him and His word with thanksgiving.

Beware and let noone spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the things, customs and morals of the world, and not after Jesus, the Christ, your Lord and your Saviour. For in Jesus dwells all the fulness of the Godhead of the Trinity as a man. And be complete in Him, for with Him and through Him can we overcome all sin and powers of satan. Colossians 2:6-10 ACPNKJV paraphrased

Can you turn to the Lord? Jesus tells us you can, for He has said:

Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Matthew 28:20 KJV

Jesus Himself has told us that if we turn to Him and are his, He will always be with us. So turn to Him, turn to Him that you may prove your love for one another and not cause one another to sin for the greatest prove of love is to be honest, just, righteous and Christly with the one you love.

Do what is right in the sight of the Lord and he or she whom you love will know you love him or her. The Lord be with you and bless you and may He turn His face towards you and smile, bestowing His love and wisdom upon you.
Amen.

The chosen name..


"Every day I start my day reading my Bible. After I discovered these names I began to substitute Yahweh for God, Jehovah for Lord, Yeshua for Jesus, and Messiah for Christ. What an experience! Talk about feeling more deeply and intimately acquainted with our Father Yahweh and with Yeshua Messiah! Wow!

try this. Change an old habit and make a new one; pray to Father Yahweh in the name of Yeshua the Messiah, and see what a difference it will make in your relationship with Him."
Abigail Brown

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call His name YESHUA: for He shall save His people from their sins. Matthew 1:21 In Hebrew, Yeshua means, Saviour.

At the time of the Lord's birth, the Jews spoke three languages and in some cases four. All spoke, Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek, some spoke Latin as well. But every Jew spoke Aramaic as the common language of the day and Hebrew, the language of the temple. Jesus, in both the Aramaic and the Hebrew is YESHUA. In both it translates as Saviour, or God with us.

Now, some of you have noticed that I use Jesus and Yeshua interchangeably and have a tendency to you Yeshua more and more in the last year or so. Some have asked why? Let me see if I can explain. Do you not all like your own name? Would you not prefer to be called by your own name rather than something else? Do you not like your nickname even better.

Let us take a moment to see how the Lord got His name.

¶ Now the birth of Jesus, the Christ was on this wise: When as His mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child by the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example of her, thought to put her away privily.

But while he thought about it, 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 YESHUA: for He shall save His people from their sins.

Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, (Isaiah 7:14) 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. Matthew 1:18-23

You see, Jesus was not named by Joseph or even Mary, Jesus was named by Jesus. The lord gave Himself the name Yeshua. He didn't just decide on the spur of the moment, He choose that name for Himself long long before, and even prophesied through His prophet Isaiah that He would call Himself Yeshua when He came to earth to offer Himself as the only acceptable sacrifice, to shed His blood so that we could have a way to Him and salvation.

While my parents named me Robert Michael, I prefer Bob or pastor, why? Because my nickname is Bob and Pastor is the occupation I chose for myself, the title I am most comfortable with. The Lord gave Himself the name Yeshua. While the Lord walked the earth, He spoke Hebrew when He taught in the temple, but Aramaic when He walked and talked to the people. It was Aramaic he chose to use at the Mount of Olives, to the woman at the well, to the Centurion and in just about every case outside of the temple. There is no record that the Lord ever spoke any other language while He was on earth as Yeshua. The Lord could have chosen any language and any name. He could have let Mary or Joseph name Him. But instead He chose to name Himself and speak in the two languages the local people where most comfortable with, Hebrew and Aramaic and in both of those languages, His name is Yeshua.

When it is really important for you to get the attention someone, you call them by the name that they will most likely answer to, when you want the Lord's attention, is it not best to call upon Him by using the name that He most prefers? The name He is most comfortable with, the name He picked for Himself, Messiah Yeshua.

So as my sister in the Lord, Abigail has so well put it;

"Every day I start my day reading my Bible. After I discovered these names I began to substitute Yahweh for God, Jehovah for Lord, Yeshua for Jesus, and Messiah for Christ. What an experience! Talk about feeling more deeply and intimately acquainted with our Father Yahweh and with Yeshua Messiah! Wow!

try this. Change an old habit and make a new one; pray to Father Yahweh in the name of Yeshua the Messiah, and see what a difference it will make in your relationship with Him."
Abigail Brown

And let us cry out to the Lord for those whom we love but are lost in the language that the Lord most often used;

Yeshua, Yeshua, saloch hem, kiy mah casu lo yaden.
Jesus, Jesus, forgive them for they know not what they do.

Sos thelema thelos ginomai Yeshua
Thy will be done Jesus.

Amen.



Monday April 16th, 2001AD, 6314 AC

Oh ye hypocrites...


Does your doctor, lawyer, pharmacist or other professional claim to be a Christian? Are you a Christian? Are you a professional that claims to be a Born Again believer? How much does that self proclaimed Born Again believer charge you for his or her professional services?

Jesus said: 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 kjv

and:

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. Matthew 22:37 kjv

and:

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. John 13:34 kjv Let's take a closer look, let us focus on the charges by professionals whom God has bestowed with knowledge and wisdom that has enabled them to be doctors, nurses, dentist and other professionals.

Did Jesus charge anything when He healed the sick, raised the dead or feed the hungry? Did He charge anything when He went up on the cross for our sins? Did He show His love for the Apostles by charging them for the three years He spent educating them?

I know of a doctor who claims to be Christian, he makes house calls for free. I also know of a dentist who claims to be a Christian, he charges seven hundred dollars for an hours work, he will not except insurance, nor will he wait for payment.

Let us look at the writings of James, the half brother of the Lord Yeshua, for this James was raised up in the household of the Lord and knew Him quite well.

¶ What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?

If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?

Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? 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.

Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.

Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?

For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. James 2:14-26 kjv

James is telling us that when a man is truly Saved, when a man has accepted the Lord and had the Holy Spirt come and dwell within him, he will show it not by his greed and love of mammon, but by his love of the Lord and his treating of the brothers and the sisters with love, not greed.

So which of the two would I say is saved? The doctor whom tells us he is saved and goes out giving his knowledge and wisdom that the Lord has given him away freely and without cost to those in need. Or the dentist who takes the gift the Lord has given him and hordes it, bestowing it only upon those who have the filthy lucre to pay for his services at rates of seven hundred dollars and hour? The doctor!

The doctors name is Alan Bean, he is my brother in the Lord and I know it not only by his words, but by his acts and works as well. Does that mean that Alan no longer sins? Of course not, but it does mean that he is doing that which the Lord commanded, he is treating his brothers and sisters as brothers and sisters, with love, not just vehicles to make money through.

The dentist will go unnamed. But, which are you? Do you go and feed the hungry? Do you cloth the poor? Do you bestow that which the Lord has blessed you with to those in need or only to those who can pay?

One last few verses:

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.

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. Matthew 7:21-27 kjv

Is your house built on rock? Or is your house built on sand? Do you do the things the Lord has commanded or are you in it for the lucre?

Are you Dr. Bean or the dentist?

May Yeshua be with and bless you, and let us never forget to thank Him for what He has done for us freely and without a selfish bone in His body, for He charged us not, but gave His life freely so that we might live.
Amen.



Easter Weekend April 14th & 15th, 2001AD, 6314 AC

He is risen...


¶ In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And then go quickly, and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead; and, behold, He goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see Him: lo, I have told you.

So, they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring Yeshua's disciples word. And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held Him by the feet, and worshipped Him. Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

¶ Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and told the chief priests all the things that were done. And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, the leaders of the jews gave a large amount of money to the soldiers, saying, say ye, "His disciples came by night, and stole Him away while we slept." And if this come to the governor's ears, we will persuade him, and secure you. So they took the bribe, and did as they were told: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.

¶ Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. And when they saw Him, they worshipped Him: but some doubted. 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. Matthew 28:1-20 ACPNKJV

As Born Again Christians, we worship not things made by human hands out of materials made by God such as stone, wood or dirt. We don't worship statues and paintings of what men in their deluded minds imagine the Lord God of all to look like. We don't worship men whom others have made higher then other men or almost equal to God Almighty. We don't worship the woman whom God chose to carry His Son in her womb or feed Him at her breast. No, we worship the Living God, the God who so loves us that He left His heavenly home to come to earth as Jesus, His only begotten Son and shed His precious blood so that we might be free from damnation and be His adopted sons and daughters. We worship the Living Christ, Messiah Yeshua.

We worship Him who three days after being crucified to fulfill the Scriptures, rose again from the dead. No other had ever done that before and no other has done it since, no one else can or could do it for it is only the God of Life that can take and give life. Only He who created us can rise us from the dead and as Born Again Christians, we will one day rise as the Lord did, rise and be installed within the home of the Lord our God, free from the evils, pains and suffering of the eternity of those who refuse to except Jesus as the Christ will suffer.

And this Sunday, April 15th, in the year of our Lord 2001 we will celebrate the 1,972nd anniversary of His miraculous resurrection. We celebrate it for it is the most holy day of the year, for it is only our Lord and Saviour, the Living Christ, God, who has ever raised Himself from the dead and has to power to rise us as well.

Praise God and may He continue to be with us and bless us, may he see you and turn His face towards you and yours, may He help you to understand His will for you and this world of ours and in the words of the Lords most beloved Apostle, the Apostle John, "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." Revelation 22:20 and 21 KJV



Friday April 13th, 2001AD, 6314 AC

Oh Lord...


On this day, 1972 years ago, the Lord Jesus was fulfilling the prophecy of Jonah.

¶ Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. But Jesus answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Matthew 12:38-40

¶ 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.

And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulchre. Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate, saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while He was yet alive, After three days I will rise again. Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest His disciples come by night, and steal Him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.

Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as ye can. So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.

¶ In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. And the angel answered and said unto the women,

Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen,... Matthew 27:57- Matthew 28:6

Praise God! Let us thank God for freeing those 24 held by China, let us thank God for giving us a president that fights to free men and women for Easter and not one like unto the last, that bombed Christians on Easter. Let us thank God for all He has done for us, but most of all, let us thank God for coming to earth as a baby in the womb that grew to be a man named Jesus that loves us so much that He voluntarily and with no hesitation or fight fulfilled all prophecy of the first coming of Messiah. Including the prophecy of Jonah.

May He bless you all this day and may you keep me, mine, the babies that are about to be slaughtered in the womb and this ministry in your prayers.

Amen.

Why do liberal churches ignore Revelation?


Have you ever wondered why liberal churches refuse to either preach the Book of Revelation at all or stop after going no further than the third chapter?

Liberal churches are those churches that do not preach or accept the fact that every word written in the bible is and was dictated by God Himself. They do not for one reason or another accept the Trinity and God as the Creator.

So if they were to preach the entire book of even through the fourth chapter, how would they explain this:

¶ After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. That my brothers and sisters in the Lord is Rapture, John was taken up, before the next chapters, the chapters that cover time called tribulation. A symbolic look at what happens to those of us who are the church of Philadelphia.

And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And He that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.

And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying,

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to Him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever, The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,

Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created. He on the throne is Jesus, this last verse tells us that Jesus and God are one in the same, for here we learn that it is Jesus who created the world and that He created all things for His pleasure, so much for the Lord being our best friend, here we learn that we are not His friends, but His creations and that we were created for His pleasure, in other words, to serve Him. Revelation 4:1-11 KJV

I've said this many times before and I'm going to say it again, your salvation is your responsibility, not mine, not the preacher down the streets, yours. You can choose to follow God by reading His book, the holy bible or you can choose to follow the pope, a priest, a rabbi, some preacher or any number of others who are more than willing to tell you what God really meant to say in His book. But one day, you will stand before God Almighty and you will either find your name in His Book of Life or not, if it is there, you have no one to thank but Jesus, the Holy Spirit and yourself. If it is not there, you have no one to blame but yourself. For if you have read this far, you are both able to read and have access to the Bible. If you choose to read only commentary and not Scripture, your damnation if it comes to that, is upon your own head, not mine, not the Lords, but yours.

Let us pray that this thing going on in China will not get out of hand, let us pray that the Chinese will release the service boys and girls they are holding. And let us learn from this not to send our daughters, wives, mothers and aunts off to protect us and fight for us, God did not create girls to be warriors, He did not create them to bear weapons and fight, He created them to serve their husbands by raising his children to do what is right in the sight of the Lord. I call them boys, because men do not send or take with them, girls off to fight wars, boys do.

The Lord be with you all and let us pray for those who lead us, asking God to give them His knowledge, and support. And let us pray to the Lord for those fathers, brothers, uncles, sons and grandfathers who have sent their daughters, mothers, sister off to be the warriors that they should be:

In the language of the Lord, Aramaic. Yeshua, Yeshua, saloch hem, kiy mah casu lo yaden.
Jesus, Jesus, forgive them, for they know not what they do.
Amen



Weekend April 7th & 8th, 2001AD, 6314 AC

What if aborted babies don't go to heaven?


Just a day or so ago, I pondered on whether or not babies in the womb that are murdered by abortionist do go to heaven or not, one of my problems with the flat statement that most make about babies defiantly going to heaven if the die before a certain age, is that there is no solid Scripture to support such a notion. Now, I am not saying that youngsters and infants in the womb that die through natural or man caused reasons don't go to heaven, I am simply stating that while it makes us feel to good to assume they do, there is no Scripture that tells us conclusively that anyone other than those who are Born Again do. ¶ There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto Him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou does, except God be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. John 3:1-3 ACPNKJV

and;

And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but He that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved, he that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:13-18 ACPNKJV

Where, I ask is the exception for those who are not Born Again, and when might I ask does a one year old, a six year old or a baby in the womb have the opportunity to accept that which the lord did on the cross, give his or her life to Christ and be Born Again?

We know for a fact that those who are Born Again, those who are truly saved, do spend eternity in heaven with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, for the Lord Himself has told us so. By that I mean, we know that there will be what we call the Rapture before the seven years of tribulation, because no less an authority than the Lord Jesus Himself tells us so.

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. 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. Revelation 3:7-10 ACPNKJV

One of the email that I got in defense of aborted babies going to heaven is below.

"Abortion certainly is murder, and those involved will have to answer for it. Nevertheless, our loving Father is not so careless as to allow unborn Babies and the billions of people who have never heard the name I agree that their is no such thing as purgatory and that there is no promise that murdered children are in heaven. But the Bible does talks about people who are dead awaiting a resurrection. "I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day" (John 11:24)." Let us look at John 11 and see if there is indeed an exception for babies in and out of the womb.

¶ Then when Jesus came, He found that Lazarus had lain in the grave four days already. Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off: And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother. Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met Him: but Mary sat still in the house.

Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou had been here, my brother had not died. But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.

Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.

Martha saith unto Him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.

Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? John 11:17-26 ACPNKJV

Notice the last verse, for Jesus clearly says, "And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die." When does the baby in the womb live?

The reason for this series is for you to realize the importance of putting and end to abortion on the front burner and not as something to get to after the tax cut, after we get the 24 service men and girls back again, for if those aborted babies are going to hell, we need to rescue every one of them we can and we need to start now! I am not suggesting bombing abortion mills nor am I suggesting killing the butchers that do abortions. So let us rely on God, not guns, bombs and politicians.

May the Lord our God, Messiah Yeshua, open our eyes and help us to understand that what He has written in His book, the bible is what He means and what He meant, He didn't leave anything out and He did not leave it up to us to read things into His book that He did not put into it. It is He and He alone we serve, if you are to serve the Lord, the first thing you had best do is learn to obey what He says and not try to read between the lines to avoid your responsibilities.

May God bless you all this weekend and may He help us to understand and preach His Word,
amen.

Day six...


Well, today is day six in the hostage situation with China holding 24 US Service men and girls. According to the news, US diplomats were allowed to see all 24 yesterday. If that is true, and in this day and age, nothing you hear on the news is to be taken as truth without additional information and confirmation. But if it is true, then the US knows the whereabouts of the twenty four service men and girls and with that in mind I have but one word to say.

Entebbe. Not sure I'm spelling it right, but I think you know what I mean or at least I pray you do.

How can God bless a country that sends it's maidens off to war, sends moms out to police the streets and protect the borders and charter of the ungodly un and murders more babies in the womb each year than are allowed to live.

How can God bless a nation that leaves it's warriors to rot in prisons for years on end? Does God bless a nation that turns from Him and to false gods? The god of diversification, the god of liberalism? The god of abortion? I think not.

Thursday April 5th, 2001AD, 6314 AC

Something to think about.


The population of these united States a Christian country, is approaching 300 million, the population of Egypt a Muslim country is around 60 million. Last year in these United States just a shade under 1 million babies were allowed to live beyond the womb, yet in Egypt, a country with one fifth the population, just a shade over 1 million babies were born.

The hard fact is that we are a nation where, do to abortion, the most dangerous place to be is in the womb. Now, while I and others have stated that all aborted babies go directly to heaven, let me let you in on a little secret. None of us can back that statement up with solid verses of Scripture, no where in the bible can I find anything definite telling us that babies who die are automatically admitted into heaven.

I can find this:

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

And this:

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

I can not think of anyway a baby in the womb can be Born Again, can you? I would like you to take this into consideration if you would, satan is undoubtably the originator of abortion, it is those who serve him who perform abortions and protect abortionist. Do you think satan would be likely to loose the soul to God Almighty, of every baby sacrificed to satan through abortion?

Before you condemn those who attack and use force, even deadly force to prevent the murder of a baby in the womb, think carefully of what I have said above, for if those little ones aborted are not Born Again, I do not know how they can get into heaven and if not heaven, where? There is no such thing as purgatory!

Now, I know that some of you will point me to verses referring to little children. What if they simply means that when we are Born Again, we put our faith and trust in the Christ, as a little child puts his faith and trust in his parents.

Let us work to end abolition in this country, for it is an abomination in the eyes of the Lord and while we know that God is patient, even His patience will run out eventually and when God's patience runs out, it is not a pretty thing to see.

The Lord God above be with you all, hug and pray for your kids and ask God to end abortion,
amen.

What is the president to do?


President George Bush is faced with a very serious problem, he is facing potential war with China. Thirty or forty years ago that may not have been much of a problem, but today, after eight years of Clinton it is. President Bush has inherited a military laboring under the influence and with senior leadership appointed by a devote communist who as president was commander in chief of the military as well. President Bush is stuck with senior intelligence officers who like former president Clinton are communist through and through. He has inherited a Senate and Congress that like ostriches, had their collective heads in the sand and instead of removing this communist threat, instead reinforced the Clinton presidency. President Bush is stuck with a news media that is enthralled with the communist and despises the Constitution that makes them just plain Joes instead of the ruling elite they know they should be.

President Bush has inherited a military that can not fight their way out of a wet paper bag, but does know how to use a condom and how to accept diversity with homosexuals and lesbians heralded instead of removed.

President Bush has inherited a military, a defense department, a Justice Department, an FBI, a CIA and a government for the most part that is still ruled by Clinton hang overs, devote communist each and every one. Men and women that put abortion and hatred for this nation and it's people ahead of all else, men and women whose religion is liberalism, leftist communism and hatred for the God of the Bible. What will President Bush to do?

I do not know what President Bush will do, I do know what I would do if I were president and that is what we will look at today.

¶ Now Jehoshaphat had riches and honour in abundance, and joined alliances with Ahab. And after certain years he went down to Ahab to Samaria. And Ahab killed sheep and oxen for him in abundance, and for the people that he had with him, and persuaded him to go up with him to Ramothgilead. And Ahab king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat king of Judah, Wilt thou go with me to Ramothgilead? And Jehoshaphat answered him, I am as thou art, and my people as thy people; and we will be with thee in the war.

¶ But Jehoshaphat said unto the king of Israel, enquire, I pray thee, at the word of the LORD to day.

Therefore the king of Israel gathered together of four hundred prophets of baal, and said unto them, Shall we go to Ramothgilead to battle, or shall I forbear? And they said, Go up; for God will deliver it into the king's hand. But Jehoshaphat said, Is there not here a prophet of the LORD, that we might enquire of him?

And Ahab, king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, There is yet one man, by whom we may enquire of the LORD: but I hate him; for he never prophesied good unto me, but always evil: the same is Micaiah the son of Imla. And Jehoshaphat said, Let not the king say so. And the king of Israel called for one of his officers, and said, Fetch quickly Micaiah the son of Imla. And the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat king of Judah sat either of them on his throne, clothed in their robes, and they sat in a open place at the entering in of the gate of Samaria; and all the prophets prophesied before them.

And Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah had made him horns of iron, and said, "Thus saith the LORD, ‘With these thou shalt push Syria until they be consumed.'"

And all the prophets prophesied so, saying, "Go up to Ramothgilead, and prosper: for the LORD shall deliver it into the hand of the king." And the messenger that went to call Micaiah spake to him, saying, Behold, the words of the prophets declare good to the king with one assent; let thy word therefore, I pray thee, be like one of theirs, and speak thou good. And Micaiah said, As the LORD lives, even what my God saith, that will I speak.

And when Micaiah came to the king, the king said unto him, "Micaiah, shall we go to Ramothgilead to battle, or shall I forbear?" And he said, "Go ye up, and prosper, and they shall be delivered into your hand."

And the king said to him, How many times shall I adjure thee that thou say nothing but the truth to me in the name of the LORD? Then Micaiah said, "I did see all Israel scattered upon the mountains, as sheep that have no shepherd: and the LORD said, ‘These have no master; let them return therefore every man to his house in peace.'"

And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, Did I not tell thee that he would not prophesy good unto me, but evil? Again Micaiah said, "Therefore hear the word of the LORD; I saw the LORD sitting upon His throne, and all the host of heaven standing on His right hand and on His left. And the LORD said, ‘Who shall entice Ahab king of Israel, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead?' And one spake saying after this manner, and another saying after that manner. Then there came out a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, ‘I will entice him.' And the LORD said unto him, ‘Wherewith?' And the spirit said, ‘I will go out, and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets'. And the LORD said, ‘Thou shalt entice him, and thou shalt also prevail: go out, and do even so.' Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil against thee."

Then Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah came near, and smote Micaiah upon the cheek, and said, "Which way went the Spirit of the LORD from me to speak unto thee?"

And Micaiah said, "Behold, thou shalt see on that day when thou shalt go into an inner chamber to hide thyself."

Then the king of Israel said, "Take ye Micaiah, and carry him back to Amon the governor of the city, and to Joash the king's son; And say, Thus saith the king, Put this fellow in the prison, and feed him with bread of affliction and with water of affliction, until I return in peace."

And Micaiah said, "If thou certainly return in peace, then hath not the LORD spoken by me". And Micaiah said, "Hearken, all ye people."

¶ So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah went up to Ramothgilead. And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, I will disguise myself, and will go to the battle; but put thou on thy robes. So the king of Israel disguised himself; and they went to the battle. Now the king of Syria had commanded the captains of the chariots that were with him, saying, Fight ye not with small or great, save only with the king of Israel. And it came to pass, when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat, that they said, It is the king of Israel. Therefore they compassed about him to fight: but Jehoshaphat cried out, and the LORD helped him; and God moved them to depart from him. For it came to pass, that, when the captains of the chariots perceived that it was not the king of Israel, they turned back again from pursuing him. And a certain man drew a bow and fired out of frustration, and that arrow smote the king of Israel between the joints of the harness: therefore he said to his chariot man, Turn thine hand, that thou mayest carry me out of the host; for I am wounded.

And the battle increased that day: howbeit the king of Israel stayed himself up in his chariot against the Syrians until the even: and about the time of the sun going down he died. 2 Chronicles chapter 18 ACPNKJV


¶ And Jehoshaphat the king of Judah returned to his house in peace to Jerusalem. And Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him, and said to king Jehoshaphat, "Should thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate the LORD? therefore is wrath upon thee from before the LORD. Nevertheless there are good things found in thee, in that thou hast taken away the groves out of the land, and hast prepared thine heart to seek God."

And Jehoshaphat dwelt at Jerusalem: and he went out again through the people from Beersheba to mount Ephraim, and brought them back unto the LORD God of their fathers. And he set judges in the land throughout all the fenced cities of Judah, city by city, And said to the judges, "Take heed what ye do: for ye judge not for man, but for the LORD, who is with you in the judgment. Wherefore now let the fear of the LORD be upon you; take heed and do it: for there is no iniquity with the LORD our God, nor respect of persons, nor taking of gifts."

Moreover in Jerusalem did Jehoshaphat set of the Levites, and of the priests, and of the chief of the fathers of Israel, for the judgment of the LORD, and for controversies, when they returned to Jerusalem. And he charged them, saying, "Thus shall ye do in the fear of the LORD, faithfully, and with a perfect heart. And what cause soever shall come to you of your brethren that dwell in their cities, between blood and blood, between law and commandment, statutes and judgments, ye shall even warn them that they trespass not against the LORD, and so wrath come upon you, and upon your brethren: this do, and ye shall not trespass. And, behold, Amariah the chief priest is over you in all matters of the LORD; and Zebadiah the son of Ishmael, the ruler of the house of Judah, for all the king's matters: also the Levites shall be officers before you. Deal courageously, and the LORD shall be with the good." 2 Chronicles chapter 19 ACPNKJV


¶ It came to pass after this also, that the children of Moab, and the children of Ammon, and with them other beside the Ammonites, came against Jehoshaphat to battle. Then there came some that told Jehoshaphat, saying, "There cometh a great multitude against thee from beyond the sea on this side Syria; and, behold, they be in Hazazontamar, which is Engedi."

And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the LORD, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah.

And all Judah gathered themselves together, to ask help of the LORD: even out of all the cities of Judah they came to seek the LORD. And Jehoshaphat stood in the congregation of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the LORD, before the new court, and said,

"O LORD God of our fathers, art not thou God in heaven? And rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? And in thine hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand thee? Art not thou our God, who did drive out the inhabitants of this land before thy people Israel, and gave it to the seed of Abraham thy friend for ever? And they dwelt therein, and have built Thee a sanctuary therein for Thy name, saying, if, when evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house, and in Thy presence, (for Thy name is in this house,) and cry unto Thee in our affliction, then Thou wilt hear and help. And now, behold, the children of Ammon and Moab and mount Seir, whom Thou would not let Israel invade, when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them, and destroyed them not; Behold, I say, see how they reward us, to come to cast us out of Thy possession, which Thou hast given us to inherit. O our God, wilt Thou not judge them? For we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon Thee."

And all Judah stood before the LORD, with their little ones, their wives, and their children. Then upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, came the Spirit of the LORD in the midst of the congregation; And he said;

"Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the LORD unto you,

‘Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's. To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel. Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you.'"

And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the LORD, worshipping the LORD. And the Levites, of the children of the Kohathites, and of the children of the Korhites, stood up to praise the LORD God of Israel with a loud voice on high.

¶ And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, "Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe His prophets, so shall ye prosper."

And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the LORD, and that should praise the beauty of Holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, "Praise the LORD; for His mercy endureth for ever."

And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten. For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another. And when Judah came toward the watch tower in the wilderness, they looked unto the multitude, and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped. And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away the spoil of them, they found among them in abundance both riches with the dead bodies, and precious jewels, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away: and they were three days in gathering of the spoil, it was so much.

And on the fourth day they assembled themselves in the valley of Berachah; for there they blessed the LORD: therefore the name of the same place was called, The valley of Berachah, unto this day. Then they returned, every man of Judah and Jerusalem, and Jehoshaphat in the forefront of them, to go again to Jerusalem with joy; for the LORD had made them to rejoice over their enemies. And they came to Jerusalem with psalteries and harps and trumpets unto the house of the LORD. And the fear of God was on all the kingdoms of those countries, when they had heard that the LORD fought against the enemies of Israel.

So the realm of Jehoshaphat was quiet: for his God gave him rest round about. And Jehoshaphat reigned over Judah: he was thirty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty and five years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Azubah the daughter of Shilhi. And he walked in the way of Asa his father, and departed not from it, doing that which was right in the sight of the LORD. 2 Chronicles chapter 20:1-32 ACPNKJV

President Bush can do as Jehoshaphat did, as I would do, call for a three day national fast, turn to the Lord and let the Lord fight the Chinese for us or he can turn to the Clinton government he has inherited. But, I would fall upon my face and yell out:

"O LORD God of our fathers, art not thou God in heaven? Rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? And in thine hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand thee? Art not thou our God, who did drive out the inhabitants of this land before thy people America, and gave it to us, the seed of Abraham, thy friend and bond servant for ever?

Did not we make every effort to appease and befriend these who would now attack us? These who now hate us and hold our children prisoner?

Behold, I say, see how they reward us, to come to cast us out of The possession, which Thou hast given us to inherit. O our God, wilt Thou not judge them? For we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon Thee."

Let us pray that the President turns to God. For fighting the communist Chinese with the congress, senate, military, government and press that he has inherited from the last administration is more of a host that Jehoshaphat ever looked at.

Amen.

Cats, dogs, Dads and Moms.


Just a bit ago, my cat joined me as I knelt in prayer. Willy, that's the cats name, I really can't say that he is my cat, for he obviously likes my wife better than me. But, when Cec is out and I'm kneeling in prayer, it has become his custom to come and curl up in my arms. between my folded hands. Sometimes, I'll reach down and pat him while he is there, other times I'll reach down to hold him, or maybe I should say, try to pat him or try to hold him. For like my relationship with the Lord, Willy only comes to me when he wants, he only lets me pat him, hold him or cuddle him when he wants to be held, patted or cuddled. And isn't that the way we are with the Lord? Don't we have a tendency to turn a deaf ear to Him or even ignore Him, till we need Him or we seek Him.

That isn't the way it should be, we should be to Jesus what a golden retriever is to his master. Have you ever really watched a golden retriever waiting in a car or truck for his master to return? The dog never stops looking and at the first sign of his master he is all over the inside of that car or truck, he can not wait till his master gets there. Once his master has arrived, that dog can not get enough of or do enough for his master, even if his master yells at him or hits him, his tail never stops and his love and devotion are beyond doubt. Isn't that the way we should be.

Should no we be willing to have as much love and devotion for the Lord as a dog does for his master? The man feeds the dog lousy tasting dog food, he gives him a place on the floor to sit and makes him wait to go out to do his business. Yet that dog is absolutely devoted to and loves his master. That dog never gets enough of his master, he never goes back to sleep when his master calls and he never fails to respond to every action of his master.

Yet, look what Jesus did for us.

And they stripped Jesus, 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! And they spit upon Him, and took the reed, and smote Him on the head. 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.

¶ 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,... Matthew 27:28-35 ACPNKJV

God came to earth in the form a man called Jesus, He bleed, suffered, was crucified for us, He promises us eternal salvation and eternity in heaven with Him, living in a mansion and we treat Him with less love and respect than a golden retriever treats his master.

May the Lord God Yeshua forgive us and help us to be more like Him and more devoted to Him.

Today, my brothers in the Lord, I would like you to pray for the dads of the three girls being held captive by the Chinese. While I would want to you to pray for all, the three dads that sent their daughters off to protect this country need extra prayers, imagine what it must be like to know that your daughter is being held and in all probability being abused by men who not only hate this country, but have no respect for virginity or chastity. Knowing that they could have prevented it, by raising their daughters by the Bible instead of to be warriors.

God help these men and may he use this to bring all involved to Christ.
Amen.

It is not a suggestion


When Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives and preached the Beatitudes, what He said was not a suggestion it was and is a command.

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; Matthew 5:44 (KJV)
Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. Luke 6:28 (KJV)

Do you do this? Do you bless those that curse you? Do you pray for those who harm you, steal from you, and use you in a despicable manner? Ladies do you pray for the man that raped you? The man or woman that talked you into aborting your baby? Men, do you pray for Clinton, the IRS, the BATF and the one who punched out your lights or shot you? Keep in mind the Beatitudes are not a suggestion made by Yeshua, the are a commandment viced by Messiah as ordered by Yahweh.

So do you?
Do you forgive them?
Do you pray for them?

If your answer is yes, then I have to tell you something. I, while I know it is wrong to envy, I do envy you, for if you are saved and find the time to pray for your enemies, you are so blessed that I envy you. For I, like so many, can not even find the time to pray diligently for the salvation of my unsaved Roman Catholic uncles, cousins, brother, sister, aunts, friends and schoolmates and acquaintances. I find it impossible to get through the list of those who have blessed this ministry, the ones who call, write and email asking for prayers for one of theirs. Between the prayers for members of the military, the administration, the militias and those whom I care about, I never seem to have enough time to pray as it is.

The more I read and study God's word, the Holy Bible, the more I realize the absolute horror of hell and the more dramatic pain and eternal suffering of the lake of fire. When I think about my kin, unsaved, friends, acquaintances and others whom I care about spending eternity in those places, I can not help but want to put them front and center of my prayer list. When I think of my pastor's wife languishing in a nursing home with Parkinsons disease, I know the importance of continually going to the Father in prayer begging Him to keep Helen pain free and to be with, strengthen and keep company my beloved pastor Warren.

When I think of the way that a local church has used, abused and cast aside one of the most God fearing and peaching preachers I have ever been blessed to meet, I realize the need to pray for them and for him and his. When I think of the children I may have fathered during my wild youth, the girls I mislead to get my way, the young men who worked for me, while I put profit ahead of God, I know the need to continually pray the God will undo the wrong that I have done. The thought of what a rotten father I was to my children, those natural, those step, those known and those unknown to me causes me to cry out to the Lord Yeshua begging him to correct the mistakes I made and to be the father that I wasn't.

When, oh when I ask do I have time to pray for those who despitefully use me? When do you? Are you forgoing your responsibilities to your own to pray for your enemies? Are all of your friends, relatives and acquaintances Born Again Believer?

Yes, Yahweh, through His Son Yeshua has commanded us to pray for our enemies, to pray for those who use us poorly, for those who curse us, but, when do we have time to do this?

May the Lord our God bless you and remember, not having the time to pray for your enemies will not send you to hell, but it may send them there. Like me, you must find time to pray for your enemies, for it is only through the grace of God that they will become your brothers and sisters and not your enemies. It is hard to pray for the ones who have hated and harmed you, much harder than praying for those you love. I very seldom have the desire to pray for those whom I consider to have cursed me or despitefully used me. But, if I want them to be my brothers and sisters instead of my enemies, I will have to find the time. Maybe getting up at four instead of five in the morning will help. Oh Lord give me strength to follow Your orders and obey Your commands. Give me the time and desire to pray for those who preach in the churches of Laodicea and the synagogues of satan. Give me the strength to ask Your blessings upon the Clinton's of this world, the federal police who have been charged with the duty of protecting the murders of the babies in the wombs and the slaughter of Christians around the country. Give me the strength to abide by Your will to do Your will and obey You at all times.

Amen.

Your will be done...


The one and only prayer that never fails is the one mouthed by the Lord Yeshua, Saying,
Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. Luke 22:42
For when we come to the Lord in prayer, asking not for the things we want and the ways we want, but asking for His will to be done, that prayer will be answered, for His will, will be done. Before we go into to days topic, let us look at a bit more of God's holy word.

¶ And Israel took his journey with all that he had, and came to Beersheba, and offered sacrifices unto the God of his father Isaac. And God spake unto Israel in the visions of the night, and said, Jacob, Jacob. And he said, Here am I. And He said, I am God, the God of thy father: fear not to go down into Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great nation: I will go down with thee into Egypt; and I will also surely bring thee up again: and Joseph shall put his hand upon thine eyes.

¶ And Jacob rose up from Beersheba: and the sons of Israel carried Jacob their father, and their little ones, and their wives, in the wagons which Pharaoh had sent to carry him. And they took their cattle, and their goods, which they had gotten in the land of Canaan, and came into Egypt, Jacob, and all his seed with him: His sons, and his sons' sons with him, his daughters, and his sons' daughters, and all his seed brought he with him into Egypt. And these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt, Jacob and his sons: Reuben, Jacob's firstborn. And the sons of Reuben; Hanoch, and Phallu, and Hezron, and Carmi.

And the sons of Simeon; Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman. And the sons of Levi; Gershon, Kohath, and Merari. And the sons of Judah; Er, and Onan, and Shelah, and Pharez, and Zerah: but Er and Onan died in the land of Canaan. And the sons of Pharez were Hezron and Hamul. And the sons of Issachar; Tola, and Phuvah, and Job, and Shimron. And the sons of Zebulun; Sered, and Elon, and Jahleel. These be the sons of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob in Padanaram, with his daughter Dinah: all the souls of his sons and his daughters were thirty and three.

And the sons of Gad; Ziphion, and Haggi, Shuni, and Ezbon, Eri, and Arodi, and Areli. And the sons of Asher; Jimnah, and Ishuah, and Isui, and Beriah, and Serah their sister: and the sons of Beriah; Heber, and Malchiel. These are the sons of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to Leah his daughter, and these she bare unto Jacob, even sixteen souls.

The sons of Rachel Jacob's wife; Joseph, and Benjamin. And unto Joseph in the land of Egypt were born Manasseh and Ephraim, which Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On bare unto him. And the sons of Benjamin were Belah, and Becher, and Ashbel, Gera, and Naaman, Ehi, and Rosh, Muppim, and Huppim, and Ard. These are the sons of Rachel, which were born to Jacob: all the souls were fourteen.

And the sons of Dan; Hushim. And the sons of Naphtali; Jahzeel, and Guni, and Jezer, and Shillem. These are the sons of Bilhah, which Laban gave unto Rachel his daughter, and she bare these unto Jacob: all the souls were seven.

All the souls that came with Jacob into Egypt, which came out of his loins, besides Jacob's sons' wives, all the souls were threescore and six; and the sons of Joseph, which were born him in Egypt, were two souls: all the souls of the house of Jacob, which came into Egypt, were threescore and ten.

¶ And he sent Judah before him unto Joseph, to direct his face unto Goshen; and they came into the land of Goshen. And Joseph made ready his chariot, and went up to meet Israel his father, to Goshen, and presented himself unto him; and he fell on his neck, and wept on his neck a good while. And Israel said unto Joseph, Now let me die, since I have seen thy face, because thou art yet alive. And Joseph said unto his brethren, and unto his father's house, I will go up, and shew Pharaoh, and say unto him, My brethren, and my father's house, which were in the land of Canaan, are come unto me; And the men are shepherds, for their trade hath been to feed cattle; and they have brought their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have. And it shall come to pass, when Pharaoh shall call you, and shall say, What is your occupation? That ye shall say, Thy servants' trade hath been about cattle from our youth even until now, both we, and also our fathers: that ye may dwell in the land of Goshen; for every shepherd is an abomination unto the Egyptians. Genesis chapter 46 KJV

So, with a beginning of 70 or so people, the Hebrews began. Now at that time, Egypt was a mighty country the population of the Egyptians must have ranged in the hundreds of thousands, the family of Jacob or Israel if you wish numbered but 70 or so. Yet 430 years later,

And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, beside children. And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle.

And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought forth out of Egypt, for it was not leavened; because they were thrust out of Egypt, and could not tarry, neither had they prepared for themselves any victual. Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt. Exodus 12:37-41 KJV

In 430 years, the tribes of Israel grew from 70 or so to 600,000 men, plus wives, plus children, a conservative estimate would have to be over 3,000,000. But, what about the children of belial? What about the Egyptians? Let's go back a bit in Exodus for the answer to that question.

¶ Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob. Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin, Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher. And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already. And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that generation. And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them.

¶ Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph. And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we: Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land. Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses.

But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were grieved because of the children of Israel. And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour: And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in morter, and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field: all their service, wherein they made them serve, was with rigour.

¶ And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives, of which the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah: And he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them upon the stools; if it be a son, then ye shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall live. But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive. And the king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said unto them, Why have ye done this thing, and have saved the men children alive? And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered ere the midwives come in unto them.

Therefore God dealt well with the midwives: and the people multiplied, and waxed very mighty. And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he made them houses. And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall save alive. Exodus chapter one KJV

Within a very short period of time, the seventy grew in such numbers that the Egyptians feared them and wished to kill them off by hard labor, God wouldn't hear of it and simply increased the seed of Israel, so Pharaoh ordered the partial birth abortions of the male babies of the Hebrews, yet these midwives, unlike to days medical society feared and worshiped God more than the government and refused to kill the babies. So, Pharaoh ordered his men to throw the male babies to the crocodiles, still didn't work, the Hebrews grew and grew in number, for God was on their side and it was and is His will for His people to grow and prosper. So instead of God's people being reduced in number, it was the pagans whose wombs were dried up, closed, or babies who died.

For the LORD had fast closed up all the wombs of the house of Abimelech, because of Sarah Abraham's wife. Genesis 20:18 KJV

And that my brothers is what God is doing today to the liberals, the leftist, to those who worship other than Jesus as the Christ. As you go about your business, look at the Born Again families, they have children, they are raising their children to fear God and as a result, God has made their wombs fruitful, but what of the others, the baal worshipers? They are either barren like the two senators from Maine or they slaughter their children on the alter of baal called the abortionist table. The result is the same, while the children of God grow in numbers, the followers of satan see a decrease in their numbers world wide. For it is God's will that His children prosper, not prosper in the ways of the world, but prosper in the things that are important, prosper in His word and with His supreme gift to man, children.

I look forward to the day when the Born Again community outnumbers the heathen pagan worshiping community here in these United States. How long will that be? I saw two bumper stickers not long ago, one said "I'm pro-choice and I vote" the other said "I'm pro-Life and my eight children vote." So, how long before a word called attrition takes over and the baal worshiper are back in the closest and the Born Again Christians are the majority once again? Not long I pray and judging from the business done at the local abortion mill on forest avenue in Portland, Maine, it won't be very log at all. No, not long at all, for with over two thirds of all HIV deaths being male homosexuals, with more and more liberal women choosing either to murder their babies in the womb or live within a lesbian relationship, it should not be long at all, for with God's help, His blessing s and His will, the children of God, the followers of Messiah Yeshua will be in the majority before the end of this old mans life.

Praise God and Your will be done Father, Your will be done.
Amen.

Protect us from ourselves.


Well, the US Senate yesterday confirmed with their vote, what just about everyone in these United States already knew. That they are incapable of being any more honest, forthright or bearers of character and integrity than the Clinton administration. They voted overwhelmingly to pass so called new campaign finance controls. These new rules acknowledge that Senators are incapable of saying no to bribes. So they are now going to pass the buck to those who contribute instead of making themselves responsible or enforcing current laws that make certain things illegal. And heaven forbid they should attach criminal penalties like jail time to senators who accept bribes.

So, why does this surprise me or anyone? Let's look at this senate for a minute or two, they claim that when the president admits to having committed perjury, lying under oath, that his crime is not equal to you or I spitting on the side walk, jaywalking or getting a parking ticket. For each of those offences are misdemeanors and our Constitution says that the president should be removed from office for "Treason, High Crimes and Misdemeanors." In the US Senate today are homosexuals, lesbians and over one third that find nothing wrong with the barbaric procedure called partial birth abortion to a baby in his or here ninth month in the womb. Our senate is corrupt and John McCain knows it, but like the vast majority of the senate, McCain has neither the character, integrity, honesty or internal fortitude to work to force honesty among office holders by criminalizing their actions and making the penalty jail time.

Whose fault is it? Who do we hold responsible for what has happened to our coutry?

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 2 Timothy 4:3&4

Dad's and the pulpit! Dad's you take back your families or hold no one responsible but yourself for the Senate today. Don't blame President Bush, don't blame Rush Limbaugh, don't blame Senators like Snowe, the queen of infanticide, the war hero in his own mind John McCain or the senator the KGB referred to as a near and dear friend who could be trusted, Ted Kennedy, no blame yourself. Don't cry about Joe Bidden and Susan Collins, the near and dear clone of Olympia Snowe, no, look to yourself and the one on the pulpit of your church.

Pray for Attorney General John Ashcroft, pray for President Bush, for perhaps the Lord will use them to right the wrongs committed in the country by your cowardice if we pray hard enough. For the sins of this nation are on your heads dad's, make no mistake about it.

May the Lord our God hear our collective prayers, may He forgive us for what we have done to this nation that cost so much blood, may He forgive us for having turned from Him to worship money, microwaves, cars, and the medicines derived at the expense of babies in the womb, or may He deal with us for our cowardice. Your will be done oh mighty and all powerful God Creator of all things, Your will be done.
Amen.

Oh yes you will Tom.


On last nights nightly national news with Tom Brokaw, while trying to use mans science to come up with the appearance of the Lord God Jesus, Brokaw said that we will never know just what Jesus really looked like.

Wrong Tom!

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

And just who does the misguided news man think will do the judging?

He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. John 12:48

Yes, one day Brokaw, like you and I will stand before the Lord Yeshua and be judged. And on that day, all will see His face, even Brokaw and the others who turn their faces from Him now ans claim He does not now live and reign.

For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. Romans 14:11

That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; Phillipians 2:10

And on that day, what will happen to you? Will your name be found in the Lambs Book of Life or not?

May the Lord our God be with you all this day, may He bless and keep you, amen.

Dads and preachers are to blame!


Last Friday at 6:AM, my wife and I left to drive to Maryland from Maine. Along the way we drove through rural Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New Jersey. Coming back we came through rural Pennsylvania and New York. As we drove through mile after mile of farms and rural land, I couldn't help but wonder why these areas kept sending pro-abortion liberals to Washington to represent them. A closer look and the reason became quite clear. Liberal churches and liberal dads. As I looked closer at the churches what I saw were Methodist, Lutheran, Catholic and UCC churches. Churches that preach acceptance of and even ordination of lesbians and homosexuals. Churches that do not preach salvation by the Blood of Yeshua, but instead salvation by good works. Churches that no longer take stands against corruption and abortion, but instead preach leaving it to individual conscience. Churches that no longer preach that husbands are the head of the family, but instead preach political correctness of equality in authority of husband and wife. Churches that refuse to use the word bastard, but instead call children born illegitimately love children.

And as Yeshua sat upon the mount of Olives, His disciples came to Him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them,

Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. Matthew 24:3,4&5 ACPNKJV

For the time will come when people will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned to fables. 2 Timothy 4:3&4 ACPNKJV

Yes, as both Jesus and Paul have forewarned us, the time has come when instead of reading one's own Bible, people now turn in ever increasing numbers to the left wing liberal teaching of the politically correct and the idolatry of the pagan churches. They fill the pews as lesbians are ordained and homosexuals are married. They applaud the welfare checks of the Bidens, the Snowes, the Spectors and the Kennedys while turning their collective backs to the gospels and the Word of God.

In 1775 king George was furious about what the churches were preaching in the colony called America, for the preachers were preaching freedom, freedom from sin and freedom from the crown, today, king George would be delighted with the way the liberal churches have reversed themselves and preach salvation through welfare and politicians.

And dads who go to church, shake their heads in agreement as the preacher of these liberal church of Laodicea churches continue to lead their sons, daughters and wives to hell through politically correct and anti Christ preaching.

And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of My mouth. Revelation 3:14-16 KJV

Want change? Then start with yourself first, your church second and the change in your family and the government will come. But first you must learn to abide in the truth of God and reject the liberal theology that contradicts the true teachings of the Word of God. Start by reading your King James version of the bible daily. By praying for forgiveness and His help in straightening out your family and your church and then vote as a follower of Christ, not a follower of mammon.

The Lord thy God be with you all this day, and I pray that God will give you the strength and confidence to abide by His word and His will and that He will give you the strength to be the head of your family. For He made you her husband, He made her your wife, not your equal, He made them your children, not your best friends.

God be with and bless you and may the peace of Yeshua abide within you and may you learn to listen for His small still voice.
Amen



Wednesday thru the weekend March 21st, 2001AD, 6314 AC

Catholics are NOT Christians!


I'm getting just a bit tired of hearing about those Roman Catholics who pass themselves off as being Christians. You can not be both Roman Catholic and a Born Again Christian! To be Born Again, means to have confessed that you are a sinner to the Lord Jesus, it means that you have asked, no begged the Lord to forgive you, you have begged Him to come and live within you and take to take control of the life that you have so throughly destroyed. It means that you, upon inviting the Lord to dwell within you have accepted that fact that from that time forward the Holy Spirit would be more than just your conscience, He would be more active in helping you do what is right in the sight of the Lord.

To be Born Again means that you accept every word written in the Bible as the absolute word of GOD! Not to be twisted, not to be tampered with, not to read meaning into, but to study, to pray for understanding. Roman Catholics trust not in the word of God, the trust in what some pope, bishop, cardinal or priest tells them. They don't pray to the Living Lord, they pray to statues fo men and women who died and were later made into saints, not by God, not by their action of accepting Jesus as Lord and Saviour, but by some Roman Catholic politician called the pope.

They will tell us they are not praying to the saint, only through him. Will some one please show me that exception in the Bible.

And God spake all these words, saying, I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

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

And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. Exodus 20:1-6

Where may I ask is the exception for going to saints made of plaster, wood, plastic, silver or gold and asking them to intercede for you with God the Father, God the Son or God the Holy Ghost? There is none. A Roman Catholic is nothing more that a pagan. An idol worshiping pagan. And to follow one of their priest, bishops, cardinals, popes or whatever, is to take your soul right down to hell with them and then into eternity in the lake of fire.

Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. Exodus 20:7

Go to a Catholic church, listen to the number of times they say, "so sayeth God", when in fact it was never said by God, but instead a saint or a pope or cardinal or whatever. Is that being a Christian? I think not. That my brothers and sisters in the Lord and those of you out there who are not saved, is paganism, idolatry, a well paved and slippery road to everlasting damnation.

Now that I'm on the subject, I want to hit on those left wing false preachers who revert to the NIV and other watered down versions of the Word of God. Get to know your Roman Catholic friends really well, for you will spend eternity with them and he whom you serve through deceit.

If you are Born Again, you want to avoid all but true Christian churches like the plague, for that's what they are, the plague.

Go with me to the book of Revelation, the Revelation of the Lord Jesus to His servant John the Apostle.

The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto Him, to shew unto His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His angel unto His servant John: Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.

¶ Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from Him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before His throne; And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the Prince of the kings of the earth. Unto Him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and His Father; to Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Behold, He cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen.

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. Revelation 1:1-8

Do you see those last words spoken by our Lord Jesus, "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty." Revelation 1:8 Now look in your Bible and see what is written.

I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. Revelation 1:9-11

Now do you see; Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. Revelation 1:11

Now look in your Bible and see what is written there.

Now let us jump ahead to the end of Revelation:

For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. Revelation 22:18&19

Now think for a moment, "If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:" and "if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life,". Think about it, if you are going to a church that uses anything other than the KJV to preach from you are listening to a preacher who has either had the plagues of this book dumped on him, that means he is here is not Saved, not raptured, for if he is here when the Lord raptures his church, that preacher is staying so as to have the plagues of this book dumped on to him. And if he has taken even one word away from this Book the Lord Jesus dictated, his name is taken out of the book of life. And if your name or his name or any name is not in the Lambs Book of Life, where is that person going? Not heaven that is for sure.

May the Lord our God be with you and yours this day, and work hard to study and lead others to the Lord for that is our most important job. Fear not ridicule, fear damnation for ignoring the command of the lord, for not all that say Lord Lord will get into heaven.

And remember, your salvation is your responsibility. Read your bible, check every word against the word of God, rely totally on no man, trust God.

God bless all,
amen

Don't rush me...


How often I and other preachers hear these words: "My brother in law says that if I'm right and Jesus raptures His church, then he'll believe..." or "My sister and brother think I'm nuts, when I tell them about Christ rapturing Born Again believers, they tell me that if that happens then they might believe...."

"Pastor, you are always telling us that you pray that those who are unsaved will get all the earthly pleasures they want and more, since the thought of those pleasures must carry them through an eternity of pain, suffering and the horrors of hell and the lake of fire." What if we are raptured and then they repent, won't they get into heaven also, won't they be tribulation saints, as in the Left Behind series. Rayford and his daughter had heard the gospels, but what it took was rapture for them to come to their senses.

I have some not very good news for those who hear the plane of salvation and reject Christ and then decide after rapture that they will accept Him claiming that then they will believe. Sorry Charlie, second Thessalonians 2:10 and 11 make it pretty clear that those who have rejected the opportunity for salvation before rapture, like those who heard it before they died, are lost, no second chances.

And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 2 Thessalonians 10&11

What Paul is saying is that those who have heard the plan of salvation and were deceived by satan into not accepting it, because they would not receive the truth, God will cause them to be even more deceived during the seven years, they will be the ones who truly worship the anti Christ, thinking him to be Christ.

If you are unsaved and think you can wait till after rapture to accept Christ, you are wrong, you will get no second chances after either Christ raptures His church or you die. In either case, you must decide before either happens.

May the Lord bless you all who are saved and may He open the eyes of those who are not. But if they insist on rejecting the Lord God Creator of all things, then so be it, pray that they enjoy this life, for it is there heaven.
Amen.

Do you believe in miracles?


Think for a moment, do you believe in miracles? If so, why? If not, why not? I believe in miracles, because, I believe in God. How could anyone consider themselves to be a Christian, and not believe in miracles? How could a Christian believe in miracles for any other reason than that they believe in God?

To be a Christian means that one believes that Jesus, the Christ, is the Son of God. To believe that Jesus is the Son of God, means that you also believe that every word spoken about Him and by Him in the Bible is absolutely true. And what was the greatest miracle of all in the Bible? The resurrection of the Lord from the grave three days after His earthly death and burial.

¶ Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, the two men said unto them,

Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen: remember how He spake unto you when He was yet in Galilee, Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. Luke 24:1-7 ACP NKJV The two men were angles of God.

¶ And, behold, two of the Lord's Disciples went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs. And as they talked together of all these things which had happened. It came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them. But their eyes were holden that they should not know Him.

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

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

And Jesus said unto them, What things?

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

And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but Him they saw not.

Then Jesus said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into His glory?

And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning Himself. And as they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and He made as though He would have gone further. They constrained Him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And He went in to tarry with them. And it came to pass, as He sat to eat with them, that He took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. And their eyes were opened, and they knew Him; and He vanished out of their sight.

And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while He talked with us by the way, and while He opened to us the scriptures? Then they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them, Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.

And they told what things were done in the way, and how Jesus was known of them when He broke bread with them. And as they thus spake, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. So, Jesus said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? Behold My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself: touch Me, and see; for a spirit has not flesh and bones, as ye see that I have. And when He had thus spoken, He showed them His hands and His feet. Luke 24 13-40 ACP NKJV

And that is why I believe in miracles, for of all the miracles in the Bible, none compares with what happened on that Easter day. For no other man or woman has ever raised themselves from the dead, either before or after. Oh, one day there will come a time when satan will use slight of hand and demonic possession of a corpse to try and duplicate that which the Lord Jesus did, but as in all other things that satan does, it is nothing but a cheap trick that deceives many, but not all.

May the Lord our God, Messiah Yeshua bless you all, may He carry to the Father, your name and the names of your loved ones in prayer and may He inscribe your name in His book of life. But, He can only do that if you and yours are Born Again. I will continue to pray you are, but it is you that must take that step, for the default is not inclusion in the Lambs book of Life, but exclusion. May He be with and bless you all this day.

Amen.

Friend? Friend.


Jesus said:
This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:12&13

Yesterday, as I got the mail, I saw a box in it from my oldest and dearest friend, Mac. Now Mac and I have known each other about fifty years, he is a bit younger than me, for he is but 55, while I am now within days of 57. But that aside, he is, to me, the friend that Jesus is referring to above. I have no doubt that Mac would both die for me or die keeping me alive. Is that not the type of friendship the Lord God is talking about? As I thought about Mac and his friendship, I also thought about how wonderful it was to know that God had allowed me the privilege of bringing the gospel of Christ love and salvation to Mac. And that now Mac is not just a friend, but a brother in the Lord as well. Thank You Lord Jesus.

But, friendship is more than just being willing to die for another, it is the being there when needed. When I ran for the senate so many years ago, Mac was a staff Sargent in the Army, he has since retired. He didn't just tell me he would register to vote and then cast an absentee ballot, no, he took 45 days leave and became my campaign counselor, photographer, driver, fund raiser, dealer with the vets and active duty military around us, and over all, "I'll take care of it Bob" guy. When I lost that election, it was Mac who stayed up till 3 am with me and finally brought the hard reality to home that it was time to throw in the towel and make the call, that call is the one that Al Gore and his advisor could not find the manhood and courage to make for over a month. Yes it is a hard call, but one that a man has to make. But it is easier to make that call when there is another man standing in the room telling you "that we fought hard, we fought right, but we lost, make the call". I feel bad that Al Gore had no friend like Mac, possibly history would remember him as more of man if he had.

When Cecily and I got married, it was Mac that made sure everything was in place and when the photographer was late, it was Mac who grabbed a camera and took nine million photo's telling the official photographer that he was no longer needed when he finally showed up. Took the pictures, had them developed and saved me hundreds of dollars as well. All the time, missing out on a great meal, dancing and revelry and then eating leftovers after all was done.

I could with little or no difficulty list hundreds of other things that Mac has done over the last fifty years both proving and showing his undying loyalty and friendship, but let me just tell you what was in yesterdays mail that got me to thinking about this. As some of you know I am in the process of writing four books. As very few of you might know, I am a lousy keeper of things like copies of things I have written. I also have a tendency to overlook most of the errors I make while writing sermons and thoughts. Mac, thank You Lord, has been proofreading and archiving these thoughts for the last three years. Three of the books are mostly previous thoughts and sermons in an easy to read and research book form. Unfortunately, it never occurred to me to save copies of anything, I always figured they would be up on the net and if I wanted to read them I could just go the net and read them.. The problem is, I never really indexed them either, therefore making it all but impossible to find the thought or sermon I want when I want it.

Thank God, Mac had them all saved in Word Perfect format and that is what I got in yesterdays mail, six 1.44 meg 3.5 floppies with all of the old thoughts and sermons on them by date.

In the words taken from Paul and Peter and John:

Grace be to you Mac, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. I give thanks to God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, for since I heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints, For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel.

Mac, my dearly beloved brother in the Lord: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. For, I thank God, whom I serve with pure conscience, that without ceasing I have remembrance of thee in my prayers night and day. That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perishes, though it be tried with fire, will be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom while you have not yet seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye have not yet seen Him, you believe, yes rejoicing with joy and full of glory: Receiving for your faith, the salvation of your soul.

Mac, God's grace and peace be multiplied unto you and yours through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord. God's grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love. For I rejoice greatly that I found in you a child walking in truth, as we have received as commandment from the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost: "That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another."

God be with and bless you my brother,
amen.

He gave His life's blood, and you...


In order for you to have a way into heaven, a way to attain salvation, God came to earth in the form a man named Jesus. In addition to living a sinless life, a life where He healed the sick, raised the dead and gave sight to the blind, He also sacrificed His own life so that you and I could have salvation through Him. Through His blood.

But what Jesus did on the cross doesn't get everyone into heaven, only those who acknowledge what He did and accept Him as Lord and Saviour. Not a nice guy, not a good man, no, only those who admit that Jesus and God the Father are one in the same. Only those who accept Him as both Lord and Saviour. Only those who believe on His name.

He gave His all for you, what have you given for Him?

I want you to think about three verses of Scripture today, just three.

First: in Mark 3:28 and 29 we read this:
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: Mark 3:28,29

Now no man knows the exact meaning of what it means to blaspheme the Holy Ghost, but, look at the penalty. Does it not very clearly tell us that who ever blasphemes the Holy Ghost is in danger of spending all eternity in the lake of fire with satan and his?

Now let us look in Matthew.

But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 10:33

Now, I will not lecture you on what it means to deny the Lord, I will instead let you define the very meaning of deny and the actions one does to deny another. But I will ask you to think about this. Jesus tells us that all sins can be forgiven except blaspheming the Holy Ghost. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost are one and the same. So. Denying God the Son or God the Father is blaspheming God the Holy Ghost as well. In Matthew 10:33 we read Jesus telling us that any who denies Him to men, He will deny to God the Father.

Could denying Jesus before men be one of the meanings of blaspheming the Holy Ghost? I think so. Now, what you must decide for yourself is what does the word deny mean and what actions constitute denial of the Lord. But let me help you with this thought process a bit if I may, if you and your son were in the mall and a bunch of his friends came up and started talking to him, and he not only did not introduce you as his father, but ignored you as well, would that constitute his denying you? How about if he joined in with them telling jokes or stories or talking about a tv show that degraded you as his father?

Remember my brothers, But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 10:33.

Better to err on the side of respect for the Lord than take a chance that to be loved of sinful men, you deny the Living God, the Christ, Lord Jesus, Messiah Yeshua, GOD!

Father in heaven as the time comes that we know must come, where we here in the USA are persecuted and hounded and ridiculed for Your name, give us the strength to bear up under the pressure, give us the strength to put You first as You put us first. Help us to focus on You and glory, not earthly comforts and earthily loves.

Lord bless us and protect us and help us be a blessing to one this day.
Amen.



Monday March 12th, 2001AD, 6314 AC

This time in history...


Around this time 1,975 years ago, the Lord Jesus, the Christ had a conversation with satan. They discussed more than one thing, but it is the one item about government that I will focus on today. For you see, satan took the Lord to the top of a mountain and there, he announced that he, satan owned the governments of the world and that he could put anyone he choose in power over then. Jesus did not argue that point, but instead told satan that we should worship God and not government or anything else.

Over the last few weeks, we in Maine have had the opportunity to see these words proven to be prophetic, for indeed, satan the father of all lies, the father of abortion, slavery, murder and all other things evil. Has indeed shown us that he can and does put his people in high places.

Three women have proven this, State Senator Neria Douglas, (D) Auburn and Maine's two Republican US Senators Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins. Let us start with the lesser of the three evils, Senator Douglas. Senator Douglas easily and comfortably accuses a good honest man of lying, while she, in fact, lies through her teeth. Senator Douglas has proposed a piece of legislation making it illegal for private individuals to give or sell privately owned guns to other private individuals without paying a fee and having a Brady Bill check done. She claims, as a lawyer, that this would not infringe upon an individuals Constitutional rights, Senator Douglas is a liar! Under her bill, it would be illegal for me to simply give my sons my gun collection. The Maine state Constitution says: You have the right to bear arms and that right shall never be questioned. The US Constitution states: A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall never be infringed. Senator Douglas, an attorney, who should know better, a woman who has sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution, should and I am sure does know better, Senator Douglas, who calls others, with ease and smoothness, liars, is herself a lair.

Now let us look at the two that we have sent to Washington to represent us in the Halls of the US Senate, both claim to be in favor of reducing our taxes and in favor of eliminating partial birth abortion. Both are liars of the caliber of Senator Douglas and worse. Both Senator Snowe and Collins have come out against giving us a tax cut, both want to add a bunch of maybes and other strings to it, making it all but impossible for us to get any tax relief. While claiming to oppose abortions in the ninth month of pregnancy, both upheld Clinton's veto of the ban that would have ended this infanticidal practice. And like Senator Douglas, both have supported every form of gun control they could vote for. How pro abortion are these two? Both have been given a 100 percent favorable rating by the abortion industry, yet a zero by the Pro-Life organizations, Senator Snowe is referred to as "The Queen of Infanticide" by many, a title she has never opposed or objected to. Yet both of these woman claim to be Republicans, pro-constitution, pro-life and pro-gun. Like Senator Douglas, Senators Snowe and Collins have learned their lessons well from a convicted perjurer, the impeached and disgraced former president in who all three have cast their never ending support, William Jefferson Blithe Clinton.

Let us look at Luke chapter four. Immediately after Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist, He went into the desert to fast and pray for forty days and nights.

¶ And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, and there Jesus was forty days tempted by the devil. And in those days Jesus ate nothing: and when the forty days were ended, the Lord Jesus was hungry.

And the devil said unto Him, "If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread." And Jesus answered him, saying, "It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God."

And the devil, taking the Son of God up into an high mountain, showed unto Him all the kingdoms of the world in just a moment of time. And the devil said to the Lord, "All this power will I give Thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If You will but worship me, all shall be thine."

But, Jesus answered and said to him, "Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve." Luke 4:1-8 (ACP NKJV)

So, as you can see, satan claims to own the governments of the world, he goes on to say that he can give them to whom he chooses, the Lord, Messiah Yeshua in the Hebrew, does not argue nor call satan a liar, He simply tells us to worship Him not government or satan, yes my brothers, sisters and fellow patriots, Senator Douglas, Senators Snowe and Collins, like Former President Clinton prove the words of the Lord to be both true and prophetic. And so we pray, ... Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done... And I pray daily that all those who love this country, those willing to accept the responsibilities that come with the risk and rights of our Republic will seek the Lord Jesus, for why would anyone who love this nation wish to spend eternity serving he who would destroy it.

May the Lord thy God give thee peace and joy this day, amen.



Weekend of March 9th-12th, 2001AD, 6314 AC

Be very careful of whom you curse to God.


Oh how tempting it has been to call God's cursing down upon some. How many wished to ask the Lord God above to rid us of the likes of Hitler, Stalin and Bill Clinton? How many times, as we saw the two extreme left wing liberal republican senators from Maine, Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins, as they supported president Clinton's veto of legislation to end partial birth abortion, and as the veto override failed by only those two votes, did we want to look up to heaven and call on the Lord God creator of Life, to rid the face of the earth of those two? Were you not tempted, just a bit, to call down God's curse of damnation upon the BATF as they stormed Waco or Ruby Ridge? Did you not want to ask God for His vengeance against the federal agents responsible for the bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City? What about he and she that ordered it and then accused the Patriot community of the bombing? How about the main stream press, like the New York Times, CNN, ABC, NBC and CBS that covered for that evil and corrupt regime and vilified the patriots of the country?

Would it have done any good if we had gone to the Lord as His adopted sons and daughters, begging and beseeching Him to curse them? Is there any reason in the Word of God, the Holy Bible to think that He would hear and abide by our cry?

Yes there is and that is why we must be sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit within us and not curse lightly.

Notice a couple of things, as you read, you'll see the Lord say "And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house. And if the Son of Peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again." The Holy Spirit will let you know if this person, family, city, or whatever is open to the Lord or not. Further the Lord tells us, that before we curse one, we are to warn them, for the Lord told the seventy to say this to them; "The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say, Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you."

Then the Lord assures them that He will hear them and abide by their curse, the brushing off the dust, by saying this to the seventy about those they have cursed: "But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city. Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you. And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell." Notice the last six words.

And why will He abide by our cursing, when we curse because the holy Spirit has led us to? The next words of Jesus tells the whole story; "He that heareth you heareth Me; and he that despiseth you despiseth Me; and he that despiseth Me despiseth Him that sent Me." We, who are Born Again, washed in the Blood of the Lamb Jesus, are one with Him, as He is one with God the Father.

From the gospel of Luke:

After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before His face into every city and place, whither He Himself would come. Therefore said He unto them,

The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He would send forth labourers into His harvest. Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves. Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.

And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house. And if the Son of Peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again. And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.

And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you: And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them,

The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say, Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city. Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you. And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell.

He that heareth you heareth Me; and he that despiseth you despiseth Me; and he that despiseth Me despiseth Him that sent Me.

And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through Thy name. Luke 10:1-17

When we call a curse down on one or more will God always wait till judgement day? NO! No He won't, at time God will act immediately, but you had better be very sure that the Lord through the Holy Spirit is telling you to curse.

To answer that, we are going to go to the book of second Kings.

¶ And the men of the city said unto Elisha, Behold, I pray thee, the situation of this city is pleasant, as my lord seeth: but the water is naught, and the ground barren.

And Elisha said, Bring me a new cruse, and put salt therein. And they brought it to him. And he went forth unto the spring of the waters, and cast the salt in there, and said, Thus saith the LORD, I have healed these waters; there shall not be from thence any more death or barren land.

So the waters were healed unto this day, according to the saying of Elisha which he spake. And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.

And Elisha turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.

And Elisha went from thence to mount Carmel, and from thence he returned to Samaria. 2 Kings 19-25

"there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head." Little children would be teens in our language today, "Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head." Was not only an insult to Elisha, it was an insult to God, since every one in all of Judah and Israel knew about Elijah and Elisha. These kids knew exactly who Elisha was and they knew that he was God's direct representative on earth, so their insult to him was one directed at his owner, GOD, as well.

Notice, God did not wait, He sent two bears out to discipline and punish those kids immediately, notice also that Elisha didn't hang around and gloat, he just went on his way.

So, when I say "May God deal with the abortionist and their supporters, as the abortionist deals with the baby in the womb." I do so not lightly, I do so in all seriousness. I do so after much prayer and seeking the desire of the Holy Spirit. And then, I invoke Psalm 109, using their names if I know them.

May the Lord our God be with you all and may we all understand that God created us for Himself and for His pleasure. May we all understand that when we make something out of wood, and it no longer pleases us, we do not hesitate to cast it into the fire, we only keep the things we make as long as they please us. Work diligently to please the Lord your creator my brothers, do not be concerned with what man thinks, care about what your Creator thinks. Always keep in mind, you may very well be standing before the Lord, before you finish this sentence, are you ready?

Some died like men.


As we picture the millions of Jews, Christians and gypsies murdered by the satan worshiping Nazis, a picture comes to mind, the picture of naked men leading their naked wives and children into the ovens to be killed. Leading them, not as men, but as desolate creatures with no hope, no dignity and no honor. And for the most part that picture is accurate, but, not in all cases.

For, some died like men. Some refused to surrender their weapons, refused to be rounded and herded like cattle for slaughter. Some fought back.

What about you?

For yes, there will come the day when Christians, both Born again, church of Philadelphia Christians and social club, church of Laodicea Christians will be rounded up and offered up as sacrifices at the alter of satan.

How do I know? The Messiah has told us so.

In chapter 24 of the gospel of Matthew, the Apostles have asked the Lord about the end times, and Jesus has told them that He will not tell them the exact hour or day, but He would tell them what it would be like so that those around at the time could discern that it was near.

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

Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for My name's sake. Matthew 24: 4-9

Now, it is that last sentence that we are going to focus on today, for it is that last sentence that tells us that one day, we will be rounded up and, like the Jews, Born again Christians and gypsies under Hitler, be tortured and murdered.

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. Matthew 24: 9

Notice first "they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you". The ‘they's', are the non Christians, the ‘you's' in this sentence are Christians, both saved and those destined for hell as social club church of Laodicea Christians. Why the social club church of Laodicea Christians? Well, satan does not wish to let any come to Christ, so he would like nothing better than to kill all who are now his. And that is what he will do, he will kill those who can witness and he will kill those who are already his. As Hitler did not kill only Orthodox Jews, nor will only Born Again washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians be killed worldwide.

Now, let us look at the next point " and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake." That sentence could also be written, in all nations. Notice the Lord did not say, all nations except the United States, He said in all nations. My brothers, that includes these United States. So, there will come a time when they will come to take your guns, just like Hitler's Nazis, one day, a president right here in the USA, will send troops to disarm Christians. And then those who are disarmed, will be stripped of their clothing, dignity and honor, marched through the streets to some form of slaughter house and butchered. Will you be one of those leading your wife and children naked through the streets? Or will you be one of those who die like men?

Already it is happening, we are already lining up to follow false teachers and politicians instead of God Almighty. We have a nation that puts ending smoking ahead of ending partial birth abortions. How many have lined up behind the republican party and the pope instead of Jesus? Do you what to see what has happened to the Christian conservative movement? Go to www.freerepublic.com Caution, this site can be very crude. Do not let children attend it without a parent present!. and spend a few hours reading post and replies.

So, what about you? Will you be amongst the cattle or the men?

May the Lord God of Creation, Yeshua the Messiah be with you and bless you this day. May He give you understanding and a desire to protect and teach your family. May He give you His joy in the coming days and may He bless you, me, yours, mine and this country or ours. Amen.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem


How often we hear preachers, rabbis and politicians say "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem" or "pray for peace in Jerusalem".

Where do they get that idea from? Is it a thought that the came up with all by themselves? Is it even possible? First let's see where the original idea came from.

¶ Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee. Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good. Psalm 122:6-9

But, is that possible? Is it possible that in our life times there will be peace in Jerusalem? Just what are we praying for when we ask God in prayer to give peace to Jerusalem?

For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:3

No, there can be no peace, nor will there be any peace in Jerusalem until the Prince of Peace returns to reclaim Jerusalem. Therefore I say to my brothers and sisters in the Lord:
"No Jesus, no peace.
Know Jesus, know Peace!"

And to my Jewish friends:
"Ayin Yeshua, ayin eirene.
Yada Yeshua, yada Eirene!"
May the Lord God of the universe be with you all and may He bless and protect each of you and your families. And my brothers, pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for as the Apostle John said:

¶ 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.

Amen.

Praise God, Psalm 148


For the last 12 years or so, I have lived with a left wrist in pain from arthritis. Since May of 1993, I have lived with the silent suffering of losing my youngest son. Since 1995 I have lived with the sorrow of losing my personal wealth.

Yes, like many of you, I have lost much and suffer much from those loses. But, I praise GOD!

Why do I praise God even with all those things lost and all the suffering? Because I have joy. I have the joy of knowing that I have salvation, that my wife has salvation, that my son that died was born again, and that many of my friends and kin are saved as well. So, regardless of how bad the suffering is, I have the joy of knowing that this life of pain is brief and then comes the everlasting glory of eternal bliss living with and serving the Lord God Creator of heaven and earth, the Lord of lords, King of kings, God of gods, Jesus, the CHRIST.

As the Father has loved Me, so have I loved you: continue ye in My love. (for) 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. These things have I spoken unto you, that My joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. John 15:9-11 (ACP NKJV)

What is the ‘joy' the Lord is talking about? It is the knowledge that, He will be back in heaven. Therefore, our joy as born again Christians, is the knowledge that we too will soon be in heaven.

Therefore, armed with the knowledge that we are Saved and will spend eternity in the arms of the Lord Jesus, is our joy. So, the Chinese attack the USA, and you are forced to defend your family, even knowing that you and they will, no, must assuredly die in that fight, we have joy. We have joy, if we are saved. We have joy if we have lead our family to Christ, if they are born again washed in the Blood of the Lord Jesus. So, when things go wrong, don't moan, Praise GOD! Now read Psalm 148.

¶ Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise Him in the heights. Praise ye Him, all His angels: praise ye Him, all His hosts. Praise ye Him, sun and moon: praise Him, all ye stars of light. Praise Him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens. Let them praise the name of the LORD: for He commanded, and they were created. He hath also established them for ever and ever: He hath made a decree which shall not pass.

¶ Praise the LORD from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps: Fire, and hail; snow, and vapour; stormy wind fulfilling His word: Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars: Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl: Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth: Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children: Let them praise the name of the LORD: for His name alone is excellent; His glory is above the earth and heaven. He also exalted the horn of His people, the praise of all His saints; even of the children of Israel, a people near unto Him. Praise ye the LORD. Psalm 148 (ACP NKJV)

Two points here before I close and ask God to continue to bless you and yours. First, the Lord referred to in Psalm 148 is Messiah Yeshua, Jesus. And second, the reference to His people Israel isn't jews, it is those who are Born Again, for it is only those who have accepted the Lord Jesus as their own personal Saviour that will see the inside of heaven, it is only those who are Born Again that are saints.

Oh Father in heaven how I pray that you will continue to bless us, Your people. How I pray that You will continue to give them Your joy in life regardless of how things may seem on the outside, for Father we know that all things are done to glorify Thee, for all things were created by and for Your pleasure. Father I once again ask you to look over Nathaniel and his family, that You will help them through this time and reassure them that You are in control regardless of what happens. And as always Lord I pray Your blessings upon those men who take responsibility for their families, those men willing to fight and die to preserve the life You have given them and the rights You have bestowed upon them through Your holy and sacred word and your servants the founding fathers.

In Jesus sacred and holy name, amen.

A bit of prophecy


Let us look at Psalm 149, a short but pointed Psalm. First the Psalm as it appears in the KJV, this is also the way those Jews who do read the Bible read it.

1 ¶ Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.
2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
3 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.
4 For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
5 Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.

6 ¶ Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;
7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;
8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;
9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.
(KJV)

Now, let us look at it with the words of God the Father in purple and the pronouns describing God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit starting in upper case.

1 ¶ Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and His praise in the congregation of saints.
2 Let Israel rejoice in Him that made Him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
3 Let them praise His name in the dance: let them sing praises unto Him with the timbrel and harp.

4 For the LORD taketh pleasure in His people: He will beautify the meek with salvation.
5 Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.

6 ¶ Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;
7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;
8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;
9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all His saints. Praise ye the LORD. (ACP's NKJV)

Now let us look at it one more time, replacing He, Him, and Lord with God the Son and God the Father.

Praise ye Jesus. Sing unto Jesus a new song, and sing His praise in the congregation of His saints, the born again believers. Let Israel rejoice in He that made them: let the children of Zion be joyful in King Jesus. Let them praise the name of Jesus in the dance: let them sing praises unto Him with the timbrel and harp. For Jesus taketh pleasure in His people:

He will beautify the meek with salvation. Let the born again Christians be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds. Let the high praises of Jesus be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand; To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.

The time is coming my brothers, are you and your family ready? Are you leading your family to the Lord or are you just drifting along with out a care? Keep in mind, the only thing yu can take into eternity with you is your family. You can take them to Glory with you or to hell. It is your responsibility to be your families number one preacher. God has entrusted you with the care of your wife and kids, not me, not George Bush, not you local militia commander, YOU!

Oh, granted, your kids may come to Christ as may your wife with out your help, but then again, they may not.

The Lord Jessu be with you and yours and if you are Saved and are leading your family in praise and worship of Him, then praise GOD! If not, how can I help? What can I say? Or do you even care?

The Lord be with you all and please keep in prayer one 10 month old baby named Nathaniel for he has be diagnosed with ecoli. I will keep you informed. Pray first for your family and then for Nathaniel and his family and if you still have a bit of prayer time left, include me, mine and this ministry if you would.

May God bless you, me, ours and this country of ours.
Amen.



the weekend of March 2nd, 3rd & 4th, 2001AD, 6314 AC

"I'm outta here!"


How many parents have heard those very words? How many have heard their children tell them that the day they turn eighteen, they are gone? How many have actually known the horror or seeing their relationship with their kids deteriorate to the point where the kid actually leaves? How many have heard these last words, as their offspring slammed the door, "I hate you and I'm never coming back!".

How long does it hurt? What does a parent do when unexpectedly some time later, junior calls, collect?

Does one say, "Well, I hope you've learned your lesson?" or "You started this young man, if you want to talk to us, you had best start with an apology!". What if it is your daughter that has left and calls? What if she starts the phone call like this, "Dad, I just got out of rehab, my baby is hungry and I can't find a job..." Or for that fact, do you even accept the collect call in the first place?

Scripture my brothers holds the answer. Let us look at the words of the Lord, for He who knitted us together in our mothers wombs, knows us best.

And Jesus said, A certain man had two sons: And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto his sons, all of his living. And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living. And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want. And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; who sent him into his fields to feed the swine. And he would have loved to filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: but no man gave unto him.

And when he came to realized his plight, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, I am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.

And he arose, and went to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.

And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son. But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:

And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry: For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry. Luke 15:11-24

Tough isn't it? Here we have a youngster that took his share of the inheritance, went to the big city, fell in with a bad crowd, spent every penny on booze and loose women and then found himself with no money, no friends and nothing to eat. Probably got a tattoo and earrings as well.

Then he went to work in the lowest job a man could find, feeding pigs, kind of like the equivalent of a youngster from a Christian home working in an abortion mill. Then this youngster comes to his senses and goes home. How does his dad react? Does he ask him for a full accounting? But dads and you youngsters reading this, bear something in mind, the boy apologized, he told his dad that he had been a bum, that he was not even worthy of being called son any more, but that he only wanted a job working around the house or family business. He apologized and repented and asked to be taken back.

So, what do you do if your sibling who has slammed the door on his or her way out calls and ask to come home? Or just shows up on your door step?

First, do as the Lord tells us to do and has given us the example of above, first show him or her that you still love them, give them every opportunity to repent and ask for forgiveness. Don't, after picking up the phone or answering the door, say "What do you want?" Or if on the phone, as you hand it to your wife let them hear you say "It's your kid, I'm not home to him!".

Show your love, concern and let them know that you have missed them and that you still love them, but remember this, they left because they did not respect you, and they would not abide by your rules in your house. They left thinking they were grown up and could handle their lives better than you could. If they are not willing to apologize, ask for your forgiveness and abide by your rules, then they should not be welcome back under your roof for any more than a visit. If you have younger children living at home and they are using foul language and bragging about their life on the road, then they should not even be welcomed for a visit. You can not let the bad seed corrupt the good, and you had best believe that younger kids worship the ground of the older kids in the family.

It's a tight rope guys, don't try to work it out alone, go to the Lord's word and then to the Lord in prayer. Just remember, give them the first sign of your love and give them to room to swallow their pride and repent. Christ did for you, should you do less for your kids?

The Lord Yeshua be with you and yours this day, may He bless this new president and attorney general, may He bless you, me, ours and this country of ours. May He stop abortion and let His angels protect the baby in the womb with what ever force they may need to use..

The Lord's blessing upon you all,
Amen.

Render therefore unto Caesar...


While in these United States, Caesar is not the president, but the Constitution, since in the time when Jesus walked the earth and spoke these words ... Render therefore unto Caesar... Caesar was the ultimate authority. Yet today in our country, it is clear that the president is a public employee and that the ultimate authority in the US is the Constitution. But even then, we do have a responsibility to the president, and since most seem more than willing to think that today's Caesar is the president, let us look at the verses of the Lord and then how we can apply them to our responsibility to the President. Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle Jesus in His talk. And they sent out unto Him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men. Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?

But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto Him a penny. And He saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?

They say unto Him, Caesar's. Then saith Jesus unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's. Matthew 22:15-21 KJV

Well, this president seems to realize that he is public servant entrusted by us, to preserve our rights and work to serve us and be a good custodian of the things we entrust him with, including our tax dollars. But what can we do for him?

First we must remember that President Bush is a born again believer, a Saved, washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian. That said, so what can we as the body of Christ do for him?

We can encourage him:

And we exhort you, brethren, admonish the disorderly, encourage the fainthearted, support the weak, be longsuffering toward all. 1Thessolonians 5:14 (ASV)

Is this to say that the President is weak? Fainthearted? No, but as the chief executive of this country, there has to be times when he is in doubt, he has questions, he needs Devine intervention and help. And that is why we encourage him. We encourage him with letters to him to our congressional delegations and letters to the press. And we can pray for him:

Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. James 5:16 (NKJV)

Pray for one another, Christians pray for Christians. Help your fellow Christian through hard times and with his daily life by praying for him.

How hard is it to do just those two things? Not hard, here is the last letter that I sent to the President, I try to encourage him and then I let him know that I'm praying for him and then close by asking if there is anything he would like me to pray for.

"Wednesday, February 28, 2001

My dear brother in the Lord Jesus,

First I would like you to know how pleased I have been with your performance in office to this point in time. Your executive order eliminating some funding for abortions was and is a great start.

Your speech last night outlining tax cuts, spending reductions and realignments, and education was most welcomed.

And now my brother, I would like to ask you to put the elimination of partial birth abortions on the front burner, while I like just about everyone looks forward to lower taxes, while we are counting our new found dollars, a little baby in the womb is being 98% percent delivered, butchered and sold for body parts. Brother George, I implore you to focus on the elimination of this horrible form of ‘passing the seed through the fire to baal'. George as you read this, another baby is being murdered. Please move this to the front of your agenda. And may our Lord bless you, yours and our country.

I urge you to be in prayer daily, and I assure you that me and mine will keep you, John Ashcroft and your administration in our daily prayers. We will pray for you daily, praying that He will strengthen you, guide, you and protect you. That He will give you insight into those you deal with, patience and His word to keep you strong.

My the Lord bless you, and if there is anything you would have us pray for, please do not hesitate to forward that request,

Rev. Bob Celeste MCAC

Monday February 26th, 2001AD, 6314 AC

Cold, sleet, snow and ice.

As I sit here typing, I can not help but look out and see cold harsh winter all around me. The trees are bare, the sun hidden behind what has to be forty thousand feet of clouds, all of which are dumping, snow, sleet and ice over a wide stretch of Maine and Northern New England. While it is warm inside and I am comforted by the soft padding of my wives feet behind me, my mind keeps wandering to those who came here 200 years ago.

1801, February in Maine. The country is not even 25 years old yet, there is no central heat, no oil burners, no electric heat or lights. It is cold, bone numbing cold, yet there are people living here in the foothills of the White Mountains. They don't have televison or radio. No internet, theaters or malls. What they did have was the Word of God, the Holy Bible. And that is what keep them together and gave them all the knowledge they needed.

They knew and trusted God.

Now it came to pass in the days when the judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehem Judah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons. And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife Naomi, and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehem Judah. And they came into the country of Moab, and continued there. And Elimelech Naomi's husband died; and she was left, and her two sons. And they took them wives of the women of Moab; the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth: and they dwelled there about ten years. And Mahlon and Chilion died also both of them; and the woman was left without her two sons and her husband.

Then she arose with her daughters in law, that she might return from the country of Moab: for she had heard in the country of Moab how that the LORD had visited His people in giving them bread. Wherefore she went forth out of the place where she was, and her two daughters in law with her; and they went on the way to return unto the land of Judah. And Naomi said unto her two daughters in law, Go, return each to her mother's house: the LORD deal kindly with you, as ye have dealt with thy dead husbands, and with me. The LORD grant you that ye may find rest, each of you in the house of her husband. Then she kissed them; and they lifted up their voice, and wept. And they said unto her, Surely we will return with thee unto thy people.

But Naomi said, Turn again, my daughters: why will ye go with me? Are there yet any more sons in my womb, that they may be your husbands? Turn again, my daughters, go your way; for I am too old to have an husband. If I should say, I have hope, if I should have an husband also to night, and should also bear sons; Would ye tarry for them till they were grown? Would ye stay for them from having husbands? Nay, my daughters; for it grieveth me much for your sakes that the hand of the LORD is gone out against me.

And they lifted up their voice, and wept again: and Orpah kissed her mother in law and left to return to her mothers house; but Ruth clave unto her.

And Naomi said, Behold, thy sister in law is gone back unto her people, and unto her gods: return thou after thy sister in law. And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the LORD do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me.

Ruth 1:1-17 KJV

Like Ruth and Naomi, they, those who braved the hardships of winters in Maine two hundred years ago, trusted in God. What has happened to us today?
Amen




Weekend starting Friday February 23rd, 2001AD, 6314 AC

But, but, we take Saturday off, kinda...

Don't you just love the way this huge segment of society we call Jews, Muslims, American Indians, liberal "let me tell you what Jesus really meant to say" Christians and other unsaved, unwashed, destined for damnation non Christians who follow each other tiptoeing in line to the piping of satan? They claim to talk to God, they claim to read the old testament prophets, they make claims that are so far fetched it is almost comical, yet all they need do is read chapter one of the prophet Zephaniah. I'm not going to go into deep detail on this chapter, only point out some very obvious truths. 1 ¶ The word of the LORD which came unto Zephaniah the son of Cushi, the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son of Hizkiah, in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah.

2 I will utterly consume all things from off the land, saith the LORD. I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumblingblocks with the wicked; and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the LORD. I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the name of the Chemarims with the priests; And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and them that worship and that swear by the LORD, and that swear by Malcham; And them that are turned back from the LORD; and those that have not sought the LORD, nor enquired for him.
Those that have not sought the Lord are all those who have not been Born Again.

7 ¶ Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord GOD: for the day of the LORD is at hand: for the LORD hath prepared a sacrifice, He hath bid His guests.
His guest are those the Lord tells us will not be around for tribulation in the third chapter of Revelation, "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."

8 And it shall come to pass in the day of the LORD'S sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king's children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel. In the same day also will I punish all those that leap on the threshold, which fill their masters' houses with violence and deceit.

10 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD, that there shall be the noise of a cry from the fish gate, and an howling from the second, and a great crashing from the hills. Howl, ye inhabitants of Maktesh, for all the merchant people are cut down; all they that bear silver are cut off. And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The LORD will not do good, neither will he do evil. Therefore their goods shall become a booty, and their houses a desolation: they shall also build houses, but not inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, but not drink the wine thereof.
Money and position are not going to help, and for those who think they can hide, well, the Lord God Yeshua will search you out.

14 ¶ The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers. And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.
(KJV)

May the Lord God of the universe, the Creator of all things bless His people and open the eyes of those who still put their love in material things, in the things of this world. May He bless the administration of George Bush and our brother in the Lord attorney general John Ashcroft, may He protect the baby in the womb and His children who are being persecuted throughout the world, May He be with us and bless us and may He come soon,
amen.
