I am a recruiter. A recruiter for what will be the largest, strongest, most successful army the world will ever see. I recruit men and women to be warriors on the side of the God of Light against the god of pond scum and darkness.
I recruit men and women to fight for the God that needs no chuck wagon to accompany Him and His army, for He feeds tens of thousands with a handful of food:
And when it was evening, Yeshua's disciples came to Him, saying, "This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals."
But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.
And they say unto Him, "We have here but five loaves, and two fishes." Notice, they only had five loafs of bread and two fish to start with.
The Lord said, Bring them hither to Me. And Jesus commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and He took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, He blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to His disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
And they did all eat, and were filled: and Yeshua's disciples took up of the fragments that remained, twelve baskets full. And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children. Matthew 14:15-21
No the God I recruit men and women to serve, in His army, don't need to worry about being feed. For in the army of Yeshua, while He starts with but five loafs and two fish, hardly a baskets worth of food, after feeding sixty thousand men, women and children, He has left over, twelve baskets full of food.
Those who fight against us that day, serving the god of pond scum, abortionist, pimps, whores, liars, cheats, and politicians need worry, for their god needs chuck wagons, lots of them.
I recruit for the God who has no need of a medical corp, for while two of the greatest physicians to ever walk the earth, Dr. Luke and Dr. DeHann will be amongst us, we will be serving the God, who by His touch restores the wounded:
When they which were about Jesus saw what would follow, they said unto Him, "Lord, shall we smite with the sword?" And one of them, Peter, smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far.
And Yeshua touched his ear, and healed him. Luke 22:49-51
pond scum and his army need doctors, nurses, medics, ambulances, mash units, blood, supplies. But, the God I recruit for, the only God, Messiah Yeshua, heals wounds with a touch, He stops the bleeding by just being near:
And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind Jesus, and touched the hem of His garment: For she said within herself, "If I may but touch His garment, I shall be whole." Jesus turned around, and when He saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole.
And the woman was made whole from that hour. Matthew 9: 20-22
The army of pond scum needs hearses, and morticians, graves and tombstones, caskets and high priest. But, the army I recruit for has no need of those things. For the God whose army I recruit men and women for, has conquered death. When one of His warriors are trod underfoot He simply calls them back to life.
And some of them said, Could not this Man (Jesus), which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?
Jesus therefore again groaning in Himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it. Jesus said, Take ye away the stone! Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto Him, "Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days."
Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up His eyes, and said, Father, I thank Thee that Thou hast heard Me. And I knew that Thou hearest Me always: but because of the people which stand by, I said it, that they may believe that Thou hast sent Me.
And when Yeshua had thus spoken, He cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth!
And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go! John 11: 37-44
So, what do I do? I am a recruiter of men and women who want to be warriors in the Army of God, the army of the One who feeds His army, not by supplies carried and cooked by the food service departments, but by His voice. The God who needs no medical corp for by His touch or just being there His warriors are healed. The God who has no need of coffins, for by His shout His warriors are raised from the dead to everlasting life. The God who is Messiah Yeshua in His tongue, whom we call Jesus the Christ.
And why do I say men and women, while repeatedly criticizing and degrading those cowardly men who send their daughters to be warriors and cops here in this life? Because in the life to come, there are no men and women, for we are all like, like unto the angels, only better.
"Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother: Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh. And last of all the woman died also. Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her."
Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err! Not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven. Matthew 22: 25-30
So, what do I do? I recruit for the army of Yeshua, warriors for the final battle, the battle that Yeshua wins and pond scum and his forces loose, loose big time. The battle that puts pond scum and his rag tag band of misfit satan worshippers and abortionist in the outer darkness of the lake of fire for all eternity.
Wanna join? Want to start boot camp? And boot camp it will be, I will expect as much out of you as any Marine recruiter ever expected out of his recruits, more as a matter of fact. For you will be part of the most elite unit the world will ever see. Want to fight on the winning side? The side of the God of Creation? The Messiah Yeshua. Email me at: recruiter@ChristianPatriot.com . Only those who email will be trained, no others! And I will start you on the road to a commission in the Army of the final battle, the army that destroys evil once and for all, the army led by the King of kings, the Lord of lords, the creator of everything, the army of Christ Jesus. This offer is not open for ever, for:
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment! Hebrews 9:27
May you make the right choice, for their aint no purgatory and their aint no second guessing. You will fight on one side or the other. You will either fight on the side of the Lord or fight against Him and I promise you this, if you choose to fight on the side of satan, expect me to show you no quarter, for I will treat you as a traitor, and totally destroy you!
Choose ye this day, Christ or satan.
Wednesday January 30th, 2002
Before you read the Scripture below, I want you to honestly answer five questions.
1. Was this a speech that gave glory to Christ?
2. Was this a speech that recognized Jesus, the Christ as sovereign?
3. Was this a speech that gave any of the credit to Christ?
4. Was this a speech that addressed the slaughter of 1.7 million aborted babies per year in the USA?
5. Was this a speech that you knew, by his words, that the speaker was Born Again?
Time is short folks, read Matthew 24 below, don't just read it, study it. For if you can not say yes to each of the questions above and are prepared to tell me where in the speech the president made that point clear, and are still supporting him and proud of your vote for him, then you just do not understand what it means to be a Christian.
1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and His disciples came to Him for to shew Him the buildings of the temple. 2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. 3 And as He sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of Thy coming, and of the end of the world?"
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in My name, saying, 'I am Christ'; and shall deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.
And there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for My name's sake.
10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet (Daniel 9:21-27), stand(ing) in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: 17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: 18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: 21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. 23 Then if any man shall say unto you, 'Lo, here is Christ', 'or there'; believe it not. 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect (Saved).
25 Behold, I have told you before. 26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, 'Behold, He is in the desert'; go not forth: 'behold, He is in the secret chambers'; believe it not. 27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles (vultures) be gathered together.
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away. 36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but My Father only.
37 But as the days of Noe (Noah) were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the goodman(owner or master) of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not, the Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his Lord hath made ruler over His household, to give them meat in due season? 46 Blessed is that servant, whom his Lord when He cometh shall find so doing. 47 Verily I say unto you, That He(Jesus) shall make him(faithful servant) ruler over all His goods.
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, 'My Lord delayeth His coming'; 49 and shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 50 The Lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for Him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51 and shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites:
There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth! (Matthew Chapter Twenty-four ACP/KJV)
Now, let me ask you another question or two. Can you think of anything Jesus ever said that leads you to believe that you can pick and choose which of His teachings you want to follow, giving you His permission and blessings to ignore the ones you would rather ignore?
Than why do you do it?
Why do you continue to act as if president George Walker Bush is a saint, a saviour, a man dedicated to Christ and His teachings. Guys, what gun laws has he deleted? What Constitutional Rights has he expanded or restored? What executive orders of Clinton's has he revoked? Has he even lifted the restrictions placed on the US Military Chaplin Corp by Clinton? Can US military Chaplains preach against the horrors of abortion? NO! Can they preach against accepting homosexuality? NO! Can they preach the necessity of being Born Again? NO!
Did he say anything at all about revoking US Taxpayer financial support for UN funded abortions and initiatives? How about withdrawing our support from UN agencies that fund the forced abortion of babies in China? NO? so why are you still following him?
Maybe you need to read Matthew 24 again. The time is short men, maybe not short till the Lord comes back, but how long do you think you have left on this earth before you will be standing before the Lord in judgement? Plan on living for ever? Plan on saying to Him, "But I didn't know Lord"? Guess what? If you even read this one thought, He will look at you and accuse you of lying. For how can you deny this warning? How can you now say, that you have not been warned?
Take this as a warning. Follow Christ or go to hell! Be a warrior for the Lord or go to hell! Ignore Him and follow the teachings of the government and go to hell! There will come a day when there will be the war to end all wars, it comes at the end of the thousand years of Christ and His saints reign on earth, you will either be fighting with us or against us. And guess what, we, the forces of Christ, win.
Make your choice. Personally, I would rather you all be Saved, but keep this in mind, if you choice hell, you go with out me. And you will one day face the forces of the Lord and me in a battle that will end by giving you all eternity to think about you foolish choice. An eternity of not pleasure and happiness, but an eternity of outer darkness, pain, suffering in a flame that never goes out and never consumes you, an eternity of horror, suffering, pain and turmoil that exceeds that pain suffered by the Lord at the hands of those who tried to kill Him 2,000 years ago.
Choose: Be a warrior for Christ or a warrior for satan. And remember, the default is to be in the service of satan.
Lord, Messiah Yeshua, please open their eyes. Help them to understand that You are their Creator, their God, not their cuddly fair weather friend. That they will either be Yours or go to hell, for there is no purgatory.
Ya, let's take a few minutes and go visit the doctor this morning. Not the saw bones down the street, nor the one over in the emergency room clinic. No, let's go visit the doctor that found it more important to study the Doctor of Creation than fix a broken bone or listen to someone complain about their sore feet, toes, head or back. Let's go visit Doctor Luke.
Doctor Luke, the only medical doctor in history besides perhaps Dr. DeHaan who spent more time studying the Creator than the creation.
1 And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, 2 being forty days tempted of(by) the devil. And in those (40) days He did eat nothing: and when they were ended, He afterward hungered.
3 And the devil said unto Him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread. 4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
5 And the devil, taking Him up into an high mountain, shewed unto Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6 And the devil said unto Him, 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. 7 If Thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be Thine. 8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind Me, satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve.
9 And he brought Him to Jerusalem, and set Him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto Him, If Thou be the Son of God, cast Thyself down from hence: 10 For it is written, He shall give His angels charge over Thee, to keep Thee: 11 And in their hands they shall bear Thee up, lest at any time Thou dash Thy foot against a stone. 12 And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
13 And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from Him for a season (while). 14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of Him through all the region round about. 15 And He taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all. (Luke Chapter Four ACP/KJV verses 1-14)
Let's look at the words tempt, tempted and temptation. There seems to be a lot of confusion about how the Lord was tempted. So, let's see if we can't clear it up. Verse 2: says ... being forty days tempted of(by) the devil. And verse 13 says And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from Him...
So, we know Jesus was tempted, but just what does that mean? Does it mean Jesus was tempted to do something wrong? Maybe, depends on how you use the word tempted. But what we do know is that it means satan tried very hard to tempt the Lord, to get Him sin. Just like he tries and often succeeds in tempting you and me.
But when we look at the three examples of temptation that satan tried on the Lord, ones most of us might fall for, the Lord rebuked satan with scripture.
Jesus didn't hesitate, He simply rebuked satan fast and emphatically. We know that Jesus never sinned because Scripture tells us He lived a sinless life.
In first Peter, the Apostle Peter describes the Lord this way: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in His mouth: 1 Peter 2:22
Yes Jesus was tempted, but He never succumbed to the temptation to sin. For if He had, then He would not have been the needed sacrifice to bridge the gap between our sinful lives and His holy kingdom. In order to atone for our sins, the sacrifice had to be a perfect one with no spot or blemish. To fulfill Scripture Jesus had to be perfect and that means without sin. To be without sin means that He never succumbed to the temptation to sin. Jesus never had an affair with Mary Magdalene or any other woman. For He was unmarried and to have had anything sexually to do with any woman would have been adultery, a sin.
While I know that many of you would like Jesus to be your best friend, a friend just like you, He isn't! He is GOD! He is the creator of the earth and the universe, the, well as John says in John chapter one, All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made. John 1:3
Yes the Lord was tempted. He was never tempted to succumb to sin, He was simply tempted. Kind of like this. When I was young, some would try to tempt me with a butterscotch ice-cream sundae. While they ran it in front of my nose and before my eyes, I was never even tempted to taste it. For as the Lord so hated sin, I could not be tempted to even consider butterscotch anything, for I hated the smell and taste of butterscotch, just as the Lord hates the taste, smell, sight and even thought of sin.
So, yes, satan tried to tempt the Lord into sinning, but the Lord never did, the Lord was never even tempted to touch, smell, or even look upon any sin, because He hates sin even more than I hated butterscotch, of which the very smell or sight caused me to want to vomit.
So, the next time some liberal left wing preacher, or some Peter Jennings wannabe tries to convince you that Jesus was actually tempted to commit a sin, rebuke him or her with the word of God, Holy Scripture and if that doesn't work, well take a lesson from Paul in his letters to Timothy in how to deal with one that blasphemes the Lord by lying about Him.
Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme. 1Timothy 1:20
Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works: 2Timothy 4:14
Just keep in mind, yes, the Lord was tempted by satan, but no, He never was even tempted to succumb to those temptations.
The Lord our God, the sinless one, Messiah Yeshua, be with you all. May He keep you and give you the desire to study Him and get to know Him better. May He help you to desire as much knowledge of Him who created all, as your desire to learn about the things He created. For nothing was created that was created without Him.

1 Now these are the judgments which thou shalt set before them(Israelites). And today, since the children of God, since the year 30 AD, have been those that are Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians, Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians.
Travel with me through the next verses and I'll try to point out how they apply to those of us who are Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians, the children of GOD.
2 If thou buy an Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing. 3 If he came in by himself, he shall go out by himself: if he were married, then his wife shall go out with him. 4 If his master have given him a wife, and she have born him sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself.
5 And if the servant shall plainly say, "I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free": 6 Then his master shall bring him unto the judges; he shall also bring him to the door, or unto the door post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an aul; and he shall serve him for ever. We need to look at verses 2-6 as one paragraph for context, but concentrate on verses 5&6. And then we need to think back to when we were first saved. Do you remember saying to the Lord, "Take me, I am Yours"? Well, that is putting your ear against the door post of the door to heaven and saying to the Lord "put Your aul through my ear to show that I belong to you and am voluntarily Your slave." And if you married the one the Lord selected for you and you two together raised your children as the Lord's, then the whole family is the Lord's.
7 And if a man sell his daughter to be a maidservant, she shall not go out as the menservants do. 8 If she please not her master, who hath betrothed her to himself, then shall he let her be redeemed: to sell her unto a strange nation he shall have no power, seeing he hath dealt deceitfully with her. 9 And if he have betrothed her unto his son, he shall deal with her after the manner of daughters. 10 If he take him another wife; her food, her raiment, and her duty of marriage, shall he not diminish. 11 And if he do not these three unto her, then shall she go out free without money. I'm not sure about verses 7-11, other than we who have daughters who have been raised as Christ', can not allow them to marry heathens, verse 8.
12 He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death. Capital punishment.
13 And if a man lie not in wait, but God deliver him into his hand; then I will appoint thee a place whither he shall flee. 14 But if a man come presumptuously upon his neighbour, to slay him with guile; thou shalt take him from mine altar, that he may die. Here again, I am not sure enough to comment.
15 And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death.
16 And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death. While many have said their is not a word in the bible prohibiting slavery, here we see that there is. While I would agree that one who voluntarily enters into servitude and serves a man as his slave, causes no damage to himself or his master. To be sold into slavery against your will is absolutely prohibited, by the simple fact that the one capturing the man to be sold into slavery is to be put to death according to God.
And this brings us to a very important point in today's political arena. As the US finishes up in Afghanistan, the great debate is on about where to go next. Many say Iraq, others Iran, still others say Saudi Arabia. I for one feel we should be going into the Sudan. You see, in Sudan, there is a war going on, the war is an open and vicious attack on God's children by the forces of satan. In this instance, satan is going by one of his many names, allah and his slaves are muslims and they, as the government, have the army and the police and the courts on their side. They, these satan worshiping muslims, are capturing Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian children and selling them into slavery, where they are forced to renounce the Lord or die. The Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian parents of these children are being butchered. Not because they are cowards or unwilling to fight, but because the muslim government first disarmed them.
We don't need to send our troops over to the Sudan, all we need to do is arm the fathers so that they can fight to defend their children and the forces of satan will be driven back.
17 And he that curseth his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to death.
18 And if men strive together, and one smite another with a stone, or with his fist, and he die not, but keepeth his bed: 19 If he rise again, and walk abroad upon his staff, then shall he that smote him be quit: only he shall pay for the loss of his time, and shall cause him to be thoroughly healed.
20 And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and he die under his hand; he shall be surely punished. 21 Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: for he is his money.
22 If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman's husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. 23 And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life, 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25 burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe. Here we have the difference between a pregnant woman being injured and losing her baby by accident and having the baby aborted either voluntarily as here in the USA or involuntarily as in China. When a woman is injured in an auto accident causing her to loose her baby, the one hitting her car is to be punished, fined, and pay damages. But, for the abortionist, God is quite clear, a life for a life. This is not an invitation for you to go out and kill an abortionist.
26 And if a man smite the eye of his servant, or the eye of his maid, that it perish; he shall let him go free for his eye's sake. 27 And if he smite out his manservant's tooth, or his maidservant's tooth; he shall let him go free for his tooth's sake.
28 If an ox gore a man or a woman, that they die: then the ox shall be surely stoned, and his flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the ox shall be quit. 29 But if the ox were wont to push with his horn in time past, and it hath been testified to his owner, and he hath not kept him in, but that he hath killed a man or a woman; the ox shall be stoned, and his owner also shall be put to death. 30 If there be laid on him a sum of money, then he shall give for the ransom of his life whatsoever is laid upon him. 31 Whether he have gored a son, or have gored a daughter, according to this judgment shall it be done unto him.
32 If the ox shall push a manservant or a maidservant; he shall give unto their master thirty shekels of silver, and the ox shall be stoned.
33 And if a man shall open a pit, or if a man shall dig a pit, and not cover it, and an ox or an ass fall therein; 34 the owner of the pit shall make it good, and give money unto the owner of them; and the dead beast shall be his.
35 And if one man's ox hurt another's, that he die; then they shall sell the live ox, and divide the money of it; and the dead ox also they shall divide. 36 Or if it be known that the ox hath used to push in time past, and his owner hath not kept him in; he shall surely pay ox for ox; and the dead shall be his own. (Exodus Chapter Twenty-one ACP/KJV)
We as Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians, need to get back to God's word. It really scares me as I listen to Christian radio and hear announcer after announcer pay homage to George Bush. As I read Christian magazine after Christian magazine and they continue to tell us that we must be patient with President Bush, for after all, he has Senator Daschle to fight. Hogwash, while Bush fiddles, 1.7 million babies were slaughtered by abortionist in the country and the number rises every day by: 4,658 more babies.
As George Bush has lunch with his new good buddy Senator Kennedy, another 2,161 Sudanese Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians are either murdered, tortured or sold into slavery daily.
And our so called self appointed Christian Leaders are telling us the important thing is get the Senate to approve President Bush's judicial appointees. What I have to ask these so called 'leaders' is this, what about the 4,658 babies that will be killed today? What about the 2,161 Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians in the Sudan that will be either killed, tortured or sold into slavery today? When do we focus on them? It is time for these so called leaders to decide who they are going to follow, President Bush or The Lord God Creator of the Universe, Messiah Yeshua. For they can not obey and belong to both.
As George Bush runs around the nation garnering praise and worship, what about the pastors in Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian churches in China that are about to be executed?
Lord, satan has beguiled us once again, but we know that while satan means this for bad, You will make all things be for Your good, oh Lord give us the patience to wait and to understand. Blessed be Thy holy and sacred name and Lord forgive us as a nation and raise up for us, one that will follow You and not satan.
And Lord, please take care of my wife Cecily, she has not been feeling well.
On January 20th, 2001 the Clinton regimes was ended and the new president, President George Walker Bush took over. President Bush had run as a pro-life advocate, a man who promised that he would be a friend of the baby in the womb. A man who claimed that he believed in the sanctity of life.
During the eight years of the Clinton reign, the one organization that has the best records of abortions in this country, the largest provider of abortions in the nation, planned parenthood, reported that 13.6 million abortions were performed. That averages out to be just about one million seven hundred thousand babies killed each year in the US, by abortionist. Ironically, with George Walker Bush as President, the number of abortions bragged about by planned parenthood has not gone down, it is still 1,700,000 babies per year.
President Clinton had an Attorney General named Janet Reno, ms Reno, like her boss, was an out and out supporter of those who slaughtered babies in the womb. President Bush, has as his Attorney General a supposed and self confessed Born Again pro-Christ, pro-life Christian, John Ashcroft. Yet, when those who are really pro-life went to Washington to protest abortion while Reno was in office, pro-Lifers who only prayed in front of abortion mills in Washington were arrested. Attorney General John Ashcroft has said he will do the same, he will arrest pro-Lifers caught praying on the public sidewalks in front of abortion mills.
With William Jefferson Blyth Clinton and Janet Reno, we knew we had baby haters to contend with. With George Walker Bush and John Ashcroft, we thought we had friends of the baby. As it turns out, there is little to no difference in the polices of William Jefferson Clinton and his minions and George Walker Bush and his minions when it comes to the life of the baby in the womb. While Bush and Ashcroft pay lip service to the life of the baby in the womb, just as many babies have been slaughtered in their watch as by the self confessed baby haters of the Clinton regime.
How many more George? How many more babies must be slaughtered and offered us as blood sacrifices to satan before you, your minions and your ilk will be satisfied? And you and thier blood lust sated?
In 1776 it was legal for the British to invade a man's home, confiscate his goods, go through his papers, imprison him and even execute him without a trial. Legal yes, was it just? No. So, the Lord Jesus raised up George Washington to lead an army of Christian warriors to rescue this nation and free God's people from their British lords.
In 1850 it was legal for a white man to own, enslave, beat, rape and murder people who had committed no crime other than that of being born black. Was it legal? Yes. Was it just? No. So the Lord raised up Abraham Lincoln to lead Christian men to battle to once more reverse an unjust law.
In 1940, the German people raped, killed, enslaved and confiscated people and goods. They did this not only because it was legal, but because the government demanded it. The crime these people had committed? They were jews, gypsies or devote fundamental Christians. While today we look back and refer to that period of time as the Holocaust, in 1939 it was legal, not just, but legal and the law of the land. And once again God raised up an army to end the slaughter and bring to justice those who committed the atrocities.
In 1973 the Supreme Court of the United States declared it legal to murder the baby in the womb. Since that time, the world has never seen such carnage, such slaughter, while the murderers and the government that made this unjust murder legal, claim to have killed, only 65 million or so babies, estimates run to 100 plus million dead babies. Is it just? No! Is it legal? Sadly, yes. But, this time it seems that the Lord is not going to raise up one to lead Christians to battle to end this murder of the child of God in the womb. There seems to be no Washington or Lincoln on the horizon and it seems that if one were to appear, not only would the heathen murders denounce him, the government would use all of it's resources to hunt him down and kill him. But the liberal self proclaimed Christian also joins in the condemnation of anyone willing to risk life and liberty to rescue even one of these little ones from the knife, vacuum, chemicals and horror of the abortionist.
Does that mean the Lord has turned a deaf ear to that tormented baby which He created, and are so callously murdered? No! Does it mean that He condones this slaughter as some on the pulpit would lead you to believe? No!
So, what does it mean? Why has the Lord not raised up one to end this killing of babies that can not run, hide nor fight back?
I think that God Himself is going to deal with the abortion crowd. He may be waiting for His own time or He may be waiting for us to ask Him in prayer. Not casual prayer, but the type of prayer that got Peter out of jail back around AD 40.
Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.
And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison. And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.
And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me. And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision. When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.
And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews.
And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me. And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision. When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.
And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews.Acts 12:5-11
Look here: "prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him." What kind of prayer? Continuous prayer, not by a few, but by the entire church. Let us ask God to do to the abortionist, his minions, his ilk and those who serve him knowingly and unknowingly, to do unto them what He did to Sennacherib's army (read Isaiah). And let us place in His hands those who defend the abortionist and those who oppose our asking Our God to end the slaughter and be the strong shield of the baby in the womb.
But remember this, when God has to do the correction, no one is exempt, His wrath is just as likely to fall on the so called Christian who did nothing to protect the baby in the womb as it is on the murdering abortionist and the blood soaked politicians, police and courts who protect these murderers.
How much longer my Lord God Creator of heaven and earth? How much longer will You turn a deaf ear to those little ones being slaughtered? How long oh Lord before Thou will reach out Thy mighty right arm and revenge those little ones? Oh Lord, I pray that Thou would do to the abortionist what the abortionist does to the baby in the womb. Oh Lord I pray that You would let all who support abortion see and hear what the baby feels and screams and has done to him or her at the hands of these butchers.
But, Thy will my Lord, not mine, but Thine.
My brothers and sisters, please email the president at firstname.lastname@example.org And ask him, "How many more George? How many more babies must be slaughtered and offered us as blood sacrifices to satan before you, your minions and your ilk will be satisfied? And your blood lust sated?" Worried about hurting his or AG Ashcroft's feelings? Look again at the picture of the baby at the top of the page.
Tuesday January 22nd, 2002
Ok, I can understand how some folks would think that becoming a Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian is just to hard. How some would feel intimidated by the Born Again title. How some would get red faced and embarrassed if they were forced to publically pronounce the Lord Jesus as God. What about these folks, is there any way for them to get into heaven? While the answer is an emphatic no, many really think that they can work their way into heaven, that if they simply live a good life, that they will, by their good deeds and good life, get into heaven.
Well, today let us look at the Ten Commandments, let's see just how easy it would be to 'work your way into heaven by living a good life'.
Exodus Chapter Twenty verses 1-20
1 And God spake all these words, saying,
2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 3 Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.
If I were to pop out of nowhere and suddenly without any warning ask you what the most important thing in your life is, what would you say? Would your answer be anything other than "The Lord Jesus, the Christ"? If so, you are committing idolatry. Strike one.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me; 6 and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love Me, and keep My commandments.
If you are anything other than a Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian, you probably have a favorite saint that you pray to or perhaps you're hooked on praying to or asking your guardian angel for help when times get tough. Maybe you just skip God the Son and go right to God the Father. Strike two, for the Bible teaches that there is only one way to the Father and that is through the Son, that there is only one who can intercede for us, and that is Jesus.
7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain.
Strike three. For all including some who are Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians use the name of God in vain. They say, gosh darn it, or my golly, or jimminy cricket. All are slang for the name of God. Now think about it, if that is using the name of God in vain, what is your language.
8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
On Sunday, all you should do is take that day and worship God. Not use it as a day to work around the house, or wash and wax the car. God tells you to keep the sabbath holy, that means keep it as a day to do nothing but worship Him. Strike four.
12 Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
If you are over ten, you have walked all over this one. You see, the commandment does not add, except while you are a teenager or unless you think your dad or mom is wrong, or unless you have something better to do. Strike five.
13 Thou shalt not kill. (The Hebrew word 'ratsach' to break or dash in pieces, to kill or slay in an unjust manner, cold blooded unjust murder of the defenseless, never used in the killing of animals, only humans. *1)
Unless you are an abortionist or have had an abortion or support abortion, you are probably safe on this one. For the word kill in the Hebrew is ratsach, a word not easily done by any other than those who kill defenseless ones in cold blooded murder and in a terrible way at that, more like slaughtering defenseless ones.
14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
So guys, what do you think? How about you girls out there? Safe on this one? Jesus tells us that if we so much as look at another other than our spouse with lust, we have committed adultery in our hearts. So, for you youngsters, if your looking at a boy or a girl with lusty thoughts, bingo you are committing adultery, those of you who are married, ever look at someone other than your wife or husband with a look or a thought that is lustful? I would think it safe to say: Strike six.
15 Thou shalt not steal.
I know, you are all too honest to ever steal. Not only are You a thief, you are a liar as well. Let me tickle your memory and conscience. Ever take a pen from work or school? Ever keep the over change you were given at the store? Ever borrowed something and not returned it? By the way, please notice the word ever in these questions. Ever cheat on your taxes? Even a little bit? Strike seven.
16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
I think that most of you get a pass on this one. Unless of course you are involved in the law enforcement or the court trial business in any way shape or form. If you are a cop, judge, lawyer, or witness in a trial, you have more than likely smashed this one out of the park, but for most, you get a pass on this one.
17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor's.
Ever looked at something some one else owned and said "Man I wish I had one of those"? A car, computer, kid, house car, wife, mistress, power tool, airplane, boat, anything? Ah, I see the heads nodding up and down. Strike eight.
Now before I go any further, let me tell you, I am as guilty of the above as any of you, more than most. But, with one very clear difference. I am not trying to work my way into heaven. I am already guaranteed a home in heaven. You see, I am a Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian. I have greatly accepted the grace of God for what He did on the cross. Oh, I still have to say, "forgive me Lord" a dozen times a day for the things I say, think, do or dream, but you know what? Because I am a Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian, He always forgives me. I don't need to paint the church, sell Tootsie Rolls or anything else. Oh, I'll help paint the church, but not to work my way into heaven, but just to say "Thank You" to the Lord who so graciously left His thrown in heaven, came to earth as a speck in the womb of Mary, grew to be a perfect sinless infant, a perfect sinless child, a perfect sinless teen and then a perfect sinless adult, He then voluntarily allowed Himself to take the punishment that I deserved, so as to give me the only way to eternal bliss in paradise. And He did it for you too, all you need to do is accept that gift and be a Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian.
But, for those of you still trying to work your way into heaven, I have injured my foot and my drive way needs shoveling.
The Lord God Creator of the universe, Messiah Yeshua be with you all.
*1: The closest thing we in the USA do to the meaning of the Hebrew word 'ratsach' is abortion.
And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. Genesis 3:13
And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was Leah: and he said to Laban, What is this thou hast done unto me? did not I serve with thee for Rachel? wherefore then hast thou beguiled me? Genesis 29:25
But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 2 Corinthians 11:3
Well, yesterday was the one year anniversary of President Bush being the President of these United States. George Bush won by the skin of his teeth so to speak, without the Born Again pro-Christ, pro-life Christian community, he would not have won! One year later we in the Born Again pro-Christ, pro-life Christian community, have very little to celebrate. But those in the pro-death, pro-abortion community have much to celebrate for last year they had a bumper crop of murders and sacrifices to their god, molech. For in the last year, the first year of the Bush regime, they offered up the blood of one million seven hundred thousand little babies. Babies trapped in the supposed safety of their mothers wombs. Babies with nowhere to run, nowhere to hide and no one to save them.
I'm sure the murderers at planned parenthood and in the abortion industry are indeed celebrating. For, while George Bush beguiled the Born Again pro-Christ, pro-life Christian community with his hollow promises of being pro-life, he has turned out to have no more love for the baby in the womb than any of his predecessors of the last 50 years. Another year went by with the IRS turning a blind eye to all involved with abortion, for another year, not one abortionist or abortion mill has been audited.
Yes, like Eve, we in the Born Again pro-Christ, pro-life Christian community, were beguiled. Like Jacob, we in the Born Again pro-Christ, pro-life Christian community, were beguiled. And even though Paul warned us in his second letter to the Corinthians, we in the Born Again pro-Christ, pro-life Christian community, were once again beguiled.
Let me ask you a question, who does the beguiling? As you go back and read the Scripture of the day, who is that whom Paul is warning us about? Who is it that beguiled Eve? Who is it that lead Laban to beguile Jacob? Not Christ, that is for sure.
Now we have the reign of President George Walker Bush the second, after one year as we look at his fruits, who is he serving? Who led him to beguile the Born Again pro-Christ, pro-life Christian community?
Two years ago, I wrote a thought encouraging those who were sheltering Eric Rudolph to not turn him over to the Clinton regime for fear he would be murdered before standing trial by those who so love the abortionist. A year ago I had high hopes that today I would be able to, in all honesty, suggest that now was the time when Eric could get a fair trial. A year ago I thought that John Ashcroft and George Bush would insure a fair trial for Eric. Sadly what I must do is implore and beseech those who have so patiently keep Eric safe, to continue and to not under any circumstances turn him over to the police. For once again we are saddled with an administration more intent on the sacrifice of the baby in the womb than in his or her protection.
May God help us. How much longer Oh Lord? How much longer will you suffer us to continue to sacrifice the gift of life that You give us? How much longer Lord will You allow that gift to be offered up to satan as a blood sacrifice by those who serve him and protect him and his?
Yeshua please lift Your mighty right arm in the defense of those who no one else will protect. Please Lord have compassion on those little ones, send Thy army to save them.
Over the last four years or so, I have done about 1,200 daily Christian thoughts. I want you to know that under no circumstances what so ever would I ever purposely mislead you. But, I am only human. Over those years, it has become ever increasingly obvious to me, through e-mail and correspondence and phone calls, that many of you skip the Scripture and read only the commentary. That my brothers and sisters is a mistake. Let me see if I can explain why. First, it is not I that was beat, tortured, crucified, died, spent three days in the grave and rose from the dead for you. It is not I that came down from heaven to offer up my body and blood so that you might be saved. Take just a moment to read the boldface words below.
And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: so that whosoever believes on Him should not perish, but have eternal life.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, so that whosoever believeth in His Son Jesus, should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God did not send His Son Jesus into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through His Son Jesus might be saved. For those that believe on Jesus are not condemned, but those that do not believe, are condemned already. Because they have not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God, Jesus, the Christ. From John 3: 14-18
It was the Lord Jesus that shed His blood for you. It is only through your belief in and on Jesus that you can be saved, not me. There is only one true guide book to get you through this life and into eternal paradise, and that is not the thousands of pages I have written, but the few hundred pages the Lord God Creator of the Earth, the Messiah, Jesus the Christ dictated, the Holy Bible.
I try my best to help you understand Scripture, but, and please read this and understand it. Only you can save yourself. I can not, no preacher can. No priest or rabbi is going to give you salvation. It is you and only you who are responsible for your salvation and that can only come about in one way. That way is through your having a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus, the Christ, God who came to earth in the form a man named Jesus to shed His blood, to die to atone for your sins. And the only way to know how to be saved is through your reading Scripture. Not by depending upon what I say. Not by depending on the words and writings of me, Jim Dobson, J. Vernon McGee, or any other preacher.
You must have a personal relationship with Jesus, otherwise, you can read till your eyes pop out and you'll go to hell first and then the lake of fire for all eternity. For nothing that I or any other preacher can say can will be anything close to a substitute for what God has said through His Holy Scriptures. Why do so many of you rely upon the thousands upon thousands of pages written by clergy and others, instead of just going to the official and original guide book written by God the Creator?
Lord Jesus, please give them a true hunger for your word, the Holy Scriptures.
If it were not so sad, it would be funny, in a hypocritical sort of way. When William Jefferson Blithe Clinton was the president and the Republicans knew that his allies in both parties would keep his veto from being overturned, the Republicans had no trouble passing pro-Christian family value type legislation. They knew Clinton would veto them and they would never see the inside of the musty books of law.
BUT, now, with a supposed, self confessed, self determined Christian in the office of the presidency, George Walker Bush, it is a different story. With even the slightest possibility that President Bush might indeed sigh a ban on partial birth abortion, no ban is forthcoming. Probably twice a month I get a call from one of the "leaders" of the Republican party, not to tell me they are working on a partial birth abortion ban, but to ask for money. My answer is always the same, "you do something to save the lives of babies in the womb and I'll send you money". That ends the conversation.
Kinda funny when you think about it. You would think, now that president Bush has a new best friend in Massachusetts senior senator Ted Kennedy, that the president would be able to get a ton of pro-Christian family value legislation passed. After all, hasn't he done everything he could for Massachusetts Democrat Congressman avowed and open homosexual Barney Frank?
But, it is not just on the Federal level that the Republican have become indistinguishable from the leftist brethren in the Democratic party. In Maine, the ranking Republican in the Senate, one Rick, not Richard, but Rick Bennett from the oxford Hills part of the state, could not say enough about fellow leftist Republican Senator. This deceased senator, Joel Abromson, a Jew whose claim to fame, was amongst other things, answering a question concerning God, by saying "I don't know, I'll ask her the next time I see her." According to Senate minority leader Bennett, this deceased senator was amongst the strongest supporters of a woman's right to kill the baby in her womb. The way Bennett put it was like this; "Joel voted consistently against the abridgement of a woman's reproductive rights". According to Bennett, we also must lament the loose of this senator for his leadership and tireless service towards getting pro-homosexual legislation passed.
We are going to look at a bit of Scripture today that puts the actions of Bush and Bennett in prospective. Why do they both support the murder of the baby int he womb? After all, both claim to be Christians, yet both have supported by their actions or inactions the murder of one million seven hundred thousand babies I the last year. Babies trapped in the womb with no place to run and no place to hide and unfortunately, no one to turn to for help. Now let us look at Scripture that tells us why we have abortion and mercy killins of the sick, the deformed and the elderly.
Jesus said: Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. Luke 12:51-53
Father against son, son against father, mother against daughter, daughter against mother... Fathers and mothers kill their children before they are even born. And then children have their parents executed under the name mercy killing to get them out of their hair and to preserve the estate. New legislation proposed out one of the most 'prestigious' colleges in the country, Yale, proposes that after a child is born, the parents would have thirty days in which they could still opt for abortion.
And as for homosexuality, a reading of the last two chapters of Daniel will clearly show you that the anti-Christ is in all probability either a homosexual or one that loves animals, something other than a heterosexual.
So, how is it that Born Again washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians can see this and fight against these two horrors yet President Bush and Maine's Republican Senate leader can't? After all, they both claim to be Christians, yet, instead of fighting for the baby in the womb and against homosexuality, they fight for both.
One very simple and straight forward verse spoken by the Lord JESUS answers that for us:
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
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. Matthew 7:15-21
Let us commit to praying that the republicans in Washington and the states will start to show by their fruits that they are indeed Christians and not servers of satan who can not get enough blood of dead babies and raise to prominence fast enough those from whom the anti-Christ shall come. For while I find Bennett of Maine to be repugnant, I really do like President Bush, but in either case i would hate to think that either, buy their inaction will end up in eternal damnation.
May our Lord God Creator of the universe, Messiah Yeshua bless you all, may He keep you safe and be with you and yours through these tough times. And may He help us to realize how wrong the muslims are, even when they take their suicide attacks to the abortionist, abortion clinics, abortion hospitals, homosexual hangouts and congress. For we are warned that these things will happen in an attempt to get the conservative anti-abortion folk in this country to support and even join islam.
In the name of Yeshua we pray to Yahweh.
I thank God for fathers like this one. And I shake my head at police that can't be bothered or are not sure they can help. Firemen risk their lives to save cats and dogs, and a cop can't lead a dad and his sick son to the hospital with his lights on and siren clearing the way? Maybe we need to think about sending our police to firefighter school. Maybe we need to teach them that life is more important than sundry traffic laws.
Almost 2,000 years ago, Jesus raised a man from the dead, even back then, there were public servants who put the law ahead of a man's life. For after Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, while many praised God and accepted Jesus as the Christ, some instead followed the laws of man and instead went and wrote Him a ticket and charged Him at the alter of the chief priest and the council, who were more interested in protecting their own domain, their own turf then they were in seeing another's life.
Some things never change, today the officers of the chief priest call themselves law enforcement officers, they wear black, carry guns and are more interested in writing tickets than serving justice.
Yes, we. As Christians, are charged with following the law. But at times, one must think of the responsibility that God has given you and put that responsibility first. God gave that child to his dad, God holds that dad responsible. That dad did exactly the right thing in not stopping till he was sure his son was in the safe care of a doctor. Too many parents today are willing to put the safety, wellbeing and moral raising of their children in the hands of the state. I want to ask you a question; how can anyone think that those who protect and serve the abortionist can or would give two hoots about you or your kids? How can you think that those who stand by and protect the abortionist that murders one out of three babies conceived in this country could or would teach your child any morals other than those approved by the god of abortion, satan.
It is time for fathers to learn, not from Peter Jennings and the political parties, but from God. And what better place to learn of a Fathers love for His children than by reading John chapter eleven.
1 Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. 2 (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped His feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.) (Matthew 26:7, Mark 14:3 and John 12:3)
3 Therefore his(Lazarus) sisters(Mary & Martha) sent unto Him, saying, "Lord, behold, he whom Thou lovest is sick." 4 When Jesus heard that, He said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.
5 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. 6 When He had heard therefore that he was sick, He abode two days still in the same place where He was. 7 Then after that saith He to His disciples, Let us go into Judaea again. 8 His disciples say unto Him, "Master, the Jews of late sought to stone Thee; and goest Thou thither again?"
9 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world. 10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him. 11 These things said He:
and after that He saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep. 12 Then said His disciples, "Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well." 13 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that He had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.
14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead. 15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.
16 Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellow disciples, "Let us also go, that we may die with Him(Jesus).
17 Then when Jesus came, He found that he had lain in the grave four days already. 18 Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off: 19 And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.
20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met Him: but Mary sat still in the house. 21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, "Lord, if Thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. 22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever Thou wilt ask of God, God will give it Thee." 23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. 24 Martha saith unto Him, "I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day."
25 Jesus said unto her, I am the Resurrection, and the Life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die. Believest thou this? 27 She saith unto him, "Yea, Lord: I believe that Thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.
28 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, "The Master is come, and calleth for thee." 29 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto Him. 30 Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met Him. 31 The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, "She goeth unto the grave to weep there."
32 Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw Him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto Him, "Lord, if Thou hadst been here, my brother had not died." 33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, He groaned in the spirit, and was troubled, 34 and said, Where have ye laid him?
They said unto him, Lord, come and see. 35 Jesus wept.
36 Then said the Jews, "Behold how He loved him!" 37 And some of them said, "Could not this Man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?"
38 Jesus therefore again groaning in Himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it. 39 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto Him, "Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days."
40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up His eyes, and said, Father, I thank Thee that Thou hast heard Me. 42 And I knew that Thou hearest Me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that Thou hast sent Me.
43 And when He thus had spoken, He cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth!. 44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go. 45 Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on Him.
46 But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done. 47 Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, "What do we? for this Man doeth many miracles. 48 If we let Him thus alone, all men will believe on Him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation." 49 And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, "Ye know nothing at all, 50 nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not."
51 And this spake he not of himself:
but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; 52 And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad. 53 Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put Him to death.
54 Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with His disciples. 55 And the Jews' passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify themselves. 56 Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, "What think ye, that He will not come to the feast?"
57 Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where He were, he should shew it, that they might take Him. (John Chapter Eleven ACP/KJV)
Do you see the love God the father and God the Son have for each other? Do you see the love they have for us? Do you think Jesus would have ever slowed down for a blue light blinking in His rear view mirror when one of His children needed care? One day each and every dad on earth will stand before the Lord and give an accounting of how he served God by caring for the gift the Lord placed under his care, his children. The dad who refused to stop for the man in black, Saved or unsaved, did the right thing. He put the health and maybe the life of the one God had put under his care first and his licence second. May God bless him. And if he and his are unsaved, may it please the lord for Him to help this man see the Light.
What would you have done?

As you read Exodus chapter eleven, you will notice how God tells Moses what is going to happen on the Passover. How God will send His destroyer to kill all of the first born of Egypt. From the prince on down to the beast in the field.
This is kind of a reverse picture of Rapture. In Exodus 11 and 12, God rescues the Israelites, by killing the Egyptians and leaving His people. In the Rapture, God takes His people and leaves the heathen to sort out things and suffer even more than did the Egyptians.
Now take a minute to read Exodus chapter eleven, and if you would, go a bit further by reading chapter twelve on your own.
1 And the LORD said unto Moses,
Yet will I bring one plague more upon Pharaoh, and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go hence: when he shall let you go, he shall surely thrust you out hence altogether. 2 Speak now in the ears of the people, and let every man borrow of his neighbour, and every woman of her neighbour, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold.
3 And the LORD gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh's servants, and in the sight of the people. 4 And Moses said,
"Thus saith the LORD, 'About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt: 5 And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts.' 6 And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more. 7 But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the LORD doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel. 8 And all these thy servants shall come down unto me, and bow down themselves unto me, saying, 'Get thee out, and all the people that follow thee': and after that I will go out."
And he went out from Pharaoh in a great anger.
9 And the LORD said unto Moses, Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you; that My wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt. 10 And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh: and the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go out of his land. (Exodus Chapter Eleven ACP/KJV)
In Chapter twelve, if you choose to read it, you will read this:
1 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, 7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.
21 Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, "Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover. 22 And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning. 23 For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when He seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer(allow) the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you. Exodus chapter twelve verses 1,7,21-23 ACP/KJV
Putting the blood of the lamb on the door frame would be like today being washed in the Blood of the Lamb Jesus, the Christ. As those who ignored the words of God back then had the destroyer come to their home and kill their first born, so it will be today. Those who ignore the Word of God and what He did for our salvation, will likewise perish.
Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on Him (Yeshua) whom He (Yahweh) hath sent. John 6:29 ACP/KJV
As, many in the time of Pharaoh were foolish and ignored the warnings, teachings, signs and wonders of God, so are many foolish today. And like those foolish men and women back in the time of Pharaoh who were doomed, so are the foolish of today doomed to damnation. Don't be one of them. Try not to let any of your family or friends be one of them either.
May our Lord Yeshua bless you all.
Today, we, who believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman, are under serious attack. We are being attacked not only by the leftist in the media, but those in government as well. I would like you to take a moment and read what Dr. Jim Dobson has to say below, and then I will continue.
January 14, 2002
Dr. James C. Dobson Speaks Out Against Gay Marriage Bill
Focus on the Family Founder Rallies Christians to Stop California Legislation That Would Destroy Traditional Marriage
Colorado Springs----In a nationwide radio broadcast Monday, Focus on the Family President James C. Dobson, Ph.D., joined by Family Research Council President Ken Connor and Alliance Defense Fund President Alan Sears, called on Christians to register opposition to a proposed piece of legislation in California that would change the nature of marriage in California and across the nation.
Assembly Bill 1338, sponsored by Assemblyman Paul Koretz (D-West Hollywood), would establish civil unions for homosexual couples as equal to traditional marriage, and according to the bill's author, would affect 1,500 state laws that currently apply only to heterosexual marriage. The California Assembly plans to vote on the bill this month.
Dobson, heard by 7.5 million listeners each week, told his audience the bill would overturn the will of Californians. In March of 2000, 61 percent of California voters supported Proposition 22, declaring that marriage should be exclusively between a man and a woman. He added that what is happening in California will eventually travel to other states, and that the California Legislature is now "completely out of control" when it comes to issues affecting families.
"The California Legislature has been captured, almost without opposition, by those who hold a gay and lesbian philosophy and by a governor ---- Gray Davis ---- who has signed into law a host of pro-homosexual bills revolutionizing that state," Dobson said. "The result is a tsunami, a tidal wave, of anti-family and immoral legislation that is rapidly forcing the citizens of California to accept and live by an alien system of values that would never be approved if put to the voters."
"There is a point where we need to say, 'Enough is enough,' and we are there," he said. "I think this Legislature not only wants to change the culture of California ---- and do it very radically and very quickly ---- but also, by extension, the culture of the United States."
Sears, a former federal prosecutor and the administrator of the legal-defense organization known as the Alliance Defense Fund, said the creation of civil unions would not only reconfigure the face of marriage, but would also punish those people who do not willingly go along with its demands.
"(The bill) says that clergy cannot be forced to perform a civil union, yet religious organizations who employ (people) in non-clergy positions must recognize civil unions, provide for them in health insurance and other benefit packages, and those who don''t comply will be punished," Sears said. "The (homosexual) agenda is not about tolerance; it is about silencing and forcing compliance with the rigid demands of the homosexual lobby."
Dobson, Sears and Connor predicted that the enactment of civil unions would lead to the legal recognition of group marriage and other non-traditional relationships.
"If marriage means everything, it means absolutely nothing," Dobson said.More info is available on the Focus on the Family web site.
Not long ago it was just the little state of Vermont, a left wing suburb of Montreal and New York. Then it was getting the little socialist in the Maine Legislature and Maine's socialist ant-Christian governor to overturn the will of the people and support domestic partner relationships for any one shacking up regardless of sex. Neither of these two states is any more influential on the world or national scene than a three day old rotten egg. Both are known nationally and internationally as states occupied by politicians that will do or say anything to be recognized by the national media or the politicians in the large influential states.
But, now we have a very large trend setting state, a state with roughly one tenth of the nations population following the lead of the little insignificant policies of Maine and Vermont. And that is both scary and prophetic. Scary because it flies in the face of not only decency, but the teachings of God as well. Prophetic because, as you will see shortly in Daniel, the anti-Christ, is in all probability a homosexual.
But first let us look at just a bit of how God views marriage: In the word of God, wife is always a woman, never a man. As a matter of fact, no society on earth thought of a wife as anything other than a woman until the last twenty years.
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. Genesis 2:24
And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh. Matthew 19:5
For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; Mark 10:7
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it; That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, that He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband. Ephesians 5:25-33
So, as far as God is concerned, a marriage is a union between man and woman, not man and man not woman and woman. Anything else is an abomination is God's eyes.
But what about the eyes of satan? What does satan think of homosexuals? What we are about to do is look at one bit of the Book of Daniel, the most hated of all prophetic books by the left. And as you will soon see, they have good reason to hate it, for it uncovers what satan thinks of homosexuality, for his anti-Christ is in all probability a homosexual.
In the eleventh chapter of Daniel, we are reading about the end times, we are also reading much about the anti-Christ. But let us concentrate on one verse, verse 37 of Daniel 11.
Neither shall he(the anti-Christ) regard the God of his fathers, nor (have) the desire of (for) women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.
Does that mean we should simply sit back and let California go without a fight? Absolutely not, we have children and grandchildren to think about, we have millions of good reasons to fight this. But we must understand that President Bush will probably only pay us lip service, since he too seems to have no problem surrounding himself with men who love men and woman who love women.
So, how do we fight it? We fight it as we have fought other battles, we first pray and then we call politicians in California urging them to vote against anything that gives the benefit(s) of marriage to any other than a union of one man and one woman. We lost on abortion because we sat back waiting for someone else to do the hard work, to make the phone calls. We lost Vermont because no one really cares what happens in Vermont, many in the USA don't even know it is a state. We have lost much of Maine for much the same reasons. We won in Hawaii because we didn't sit on the sidelines.
You need to financially support those ministries, Focus on the Family and the American Center for Law and Justice http://www.aclj.org that are fighting this for us. We need to call a California politician.
The Lord be with you all, and may He help us fight the homosexual anti-Christ, pro-satan lobby.
Ever heard reference to God's army here on earth? If so, ever wonder what it is? As you read Exodus chapter seven, you may start to get a bit of understanding about God's army.
1 And the LORD said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet.
2 Thou shalt speak all that I command thee: and Aaron thy brother shall speak unto Pharaoh, that he send the children of Israel out of his land. 3 And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and multiply My signs and My wonders in the land of Egypt.
4 But Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you, that I may lay My hand upon Egypt, and bring forth Mine armies, and My people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments. 5 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I stretch forth mine hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them.
6 And Moses and Aaron did as the LORD commanded them, so did they. 7 And Moses was fourscore years old(80), and Aaron fourscore and three years old(83), when they spake unto Pharaoh. 8 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, 9 When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, Shew a miracle for you: then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast it before Pharaoh, and it shall become a serpent.
10 And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the LORD had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent. 11 Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments. 12 For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents:
but Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods.
13 And He(God) hardened Pharaoh's heart, that he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said. 14 And the LORD said unto Moses, Pharaoh's heart is hardened, he refuseth to let the people go. 15 Get thee unto Pharaoh in the morning; lo, he goeth out unto the water; and thou shalt stand by the river's brink against he come; and the rod which was turned to a serpent shalt thou take in thine hand. 16 And thou shalt say unto him, The LORD God of the Hebrews hath sent me unto thee, saying, 'Let my people go, that they may serve me in the wilderness:' and, behold, hitherto thou wouldest not hear. 17 Thus saith the LORD, In this thou shalt know that I am the LORD: behold, I will smite with the rod that is in mine hand upon the waters which are in the river, and they shall be turned to blood.'
18 And the fish that is in the river shall die, and the river shall stink; and the Egyptians shall lothe to drink of the water of the river. 19 And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon their streams, upon their rivers, and upon their ponds, and upon all their pools of water, that they may become blood; and that there may be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood, and in vessels of stone.
20 And Moses and Aaron did so, as the LORD commanded; and he(Aaron) lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood. 21 And the fish that was in the river died; and the river stank, and the Egyptians could not drink of the water of the river; and there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt. 22 And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments:
and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, neither did he hearken unto them; as the LORD had said.
23 And Pharaoh turned and went into his house, neither did he set his heart to this also. 24 And all the Egyptians digged round about the river for water to drink; for they could not drink of the water of the river. 25 And seven days were fulfilled, after that the LORD had smitten the river. (Exodus Chapter Seven ACP/KJV with limited commentary)
Did you notice this back in verse four? As God said to Moses and Aaron, "But Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you, that I may lay My hand upon Egypt, and bring forth Mine armies, and My people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments. " Two really important things to notice here, one, no matter what Pharaoh wanted to do, God had already decided that Pharaoh was just a pawn, and that Pharaoh would continue to deny exit to the Israelites. This was so that God could show beyond any shadow fo a doubt that He and He alone had done the things necessary to free His people. That there would be no one able to later say, "well it was a coincidence".
The second point of interest is of interest and importance, if it be possible for a humble man to pick and prioritize things of importance in God's word, armies. "... and bring forth Mine armies" what armies? What is God talking about when He says HE is going to "and bring forth Mine armies" from Egypt? I think I may have, if not an answer for you, something for you to ponder.
I, believe that God's army is here on earth protecting His children, the Born Again Christian community, as we speak. Since 1962, the congress, the senate and every administration has done everything in their power to not only disarm the USA, but to take Christ out as well. Yet, if anything, there are more Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians today then there were before they got serious with legislation and attacks. There are not more social club, church of Laodicea christians, but there are more Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians today then there were 50 years ago. How would that be possible if it were not far the hand of God? And His army.
In nations prayed for such as Russia, Christ is preached. In China, Christ is preached and now in Afghanistan Christ is bing preached. Something or someone is protecting those who preach and those of us in the USA. I want you to know something. Bush the first and Clinton tried their level best, they and their minions, to kill me. I am still here. In July of 1995, I ended up in the hospital, supposedly with a perforated ulcer. Problem was, to many holes. What I mean by that is, after I got better, I asked the surgeon who operated what all the pin hole scars on my stomach were. He said "I don't know, you came in with those holes." Not the scars mind you, but the holes. Little pin hole size holes that look like they had been put there with red hot pins.
Before that, the left front tire of my Buick Electra T type came off at 65 miles an hour on Route 95 in Massachusetts. Not just the tire, but the whole wheel. At the time, I was with the Prudential of America and asked auto safety experts and GM engineers how that could happen. They, to a man, told me it was not possible, unless the lug nuts had been loosened in a set manner previously to my driving away. When I asked if it could have happened accidentally, I was told absolutely not.
I have no doubts that God prevented both the Bush administration and the Clinton administration from killing me. They killed Andrew in an attempt to kill me, but they, even to this date, have not been able to do me physical harm. God's army!
In south America a few years back, a group of natives intent on killing some white American Missionaries, stopped their attack. Later, after the tribe came to know the Lord, the missionaries found out why the attack had been called off, the natives had seen an army coming out of heaven and surrounding the missionaries. God's army!
As a Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian, you have access to God's army as well. I think, if you think about it, you will either remember a time or remember of hearing of a time when a Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian, should have either been seriously hurt of killed, yet they were not. God's army.
Do not tempt the Lord thy God, but remember, you , if you are a Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian, are under the watchful eye of God and His army.
Neither God nor His army will allow a hair on your head to be hurt till you have accomplished that which He has set out for you to do, if, and this is a big if, if you are working towards accomplishing what the goal or task is that He has set out for you to accomplish. If you are not working towards that goal or do not have a sense that you are doing God's work, because you sense that He has not set anything aside for you to do, you are probably not a Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian.
The Lord God of Creation, the commander of God's army be with you all.
Take a moment to look at the picture of this little girl making snow angels, and then read Proverbs 31 below. And then I have a question for you to ponder.
1 The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy that his mother taught him.
2 What, my son? and what, the son of my womb? and what, the son of my vows? 3 Give not thy strength unto women(loose women), nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings. 4 It is not for kings, O Lemuel,
it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink: 5 Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted. 6 Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts. 7 Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more.
8 Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. 9 Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.
10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. 11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. 13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. 14 She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar. 15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard. 17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. 18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night. 19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. 20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. 22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. 23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. 24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. 26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. 27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. 28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. 29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. 31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.(Proverb Thirty-one ACP/KJV)
In verse 3 we see a warning from the king to his son to stay away from loose woman. Starting in verse ten, we see the description of a virtuous woman. If God were to put the little girl making snow angels, in your hands to raise, which would she turn out to be? Would you raise her to be the woman in verse 3 or the woman described in verses 10 -31?
The Lord be with you all,
Every so often satan raises up one of his minions to a point where he can try to eliminate the children of God. First it was the Hebrews and more recently Born Again Christians. How often I have read and even at times said, how satan is so good at reading Scripture, but I'm starting to think I and those others that said that, are in fact wrong. Satan is not only the slime of lime, he is not to smart when it comes to Scripture. Oh he can twist it, but he just doesn't seem to have a grasp for what it says. For time and time again he tries to eliminate the heirs of the Lord, the children of God, but if he only understood Scripture, he would see that not only is he unsuccessful, he is doing exactly what God has said he will do.
Let's take a few minutes to read how once again satan tries to rid the earth of God's people, to not only fail, but to have God multiply His while decreasing satan's slaves.
1 Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob. 2 Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah, 3 Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin, 4 Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.
5 And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already.
6 And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that generation. 7 And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them. 8 Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph. 9 And he said unto his people, "Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we: 10 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."
So, satan climbs inside of this king and in order to get the kings people to follow him in to kill off the children of Israel, he lies. He comes up with this story about how the children of Israel will join with one of their enemies and over throw them. And just like the Russians under Stalin, the Germans under Hitler and the environmentalist under Rachael Carson, the weak follow the lead of their satan processed leader and do his or her will, killing millions. Some with the gun and some by depriving millions of a means of eradicating the mosquito that carries the deadly malaria disease that has killed a quarter billion over the last 30 years.
11 Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses. 12 But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were grieved because of the children of Israel.
Don't you love it, the more satan's slaves beat up on God's children, the more God causes His to multiply.
13 And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour (very hard forced physical labor): 14 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.
15 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: 16 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." 17 But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive.
18 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?" 19 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." 20 Therefore God dealt well with the midwives:
You know, often times we wonder if there are any grey areas in life, well, here we see an area that I guess we would have to consider a grey area. For the Lord tells us not to lie, yet not only did the midwives lie, but God rewarded them for lying as well. The king had told these women to kill the men children and keep the girl children alive. He did this knowing that if he killed the men, the girls would become wives and concubines of his men and that they would eliminate the children of Israel as well. He also knew that to get men to kill innocent children, you have to offer them something, something they want. So, by killing the Hebrew men children, he knew that the girls would be fair and easy game for his soldiers. Rape, pillage, murder.
and the people multiplied, and waxed very mighty. 21 And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that He made them houses(large influential families).
But, God had other ideas, not only did Pharaoh not eliminate the Hebrews. God mad e the Hebrews to increase in numbers, and he rewarded the midwives, not for lying, but for saving the lives of His people.
22 And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, "Every son(of the Hebrews) that is born ye(his troops) shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall save alive." (Exodus Chapter One ACP/KJV with commentary)
While this is not the first time that satan and his minions have tried to kill off God's people, and it certainly will not be the last, it is a perfect example of how satan is incapable of reading Scripture any where near as well as God chosen are. You see, when you are Saved and become one of God's chosen, the Holy Spirit comes and dwells within you, and it is this Holy Spirit that helps you understand God's word and God's Word. Satan does not have the Holy Spirit within him, so he is out there reading words that have no real meaning for him. So he keeps messing up and following the path that the Lord has outlined in His word starting with Genesis chapter three until Revelation 20:10. If satan could read Scripture as well as you and I, he would repent and save himself from the damnation that is his to come. For while the slime of all slimes, knows how powerful God is, he just doesn't understand that there is no way out of eternal damnation other than being a repentant Born Again Christian. He thinks he can fight his way out. Satan is not only ignorant of God and His Word, he is fool as well.
So, the next time you think to yourself how smart satan is, or hear someone tell you how smart he is and how well he reads Scripture, just remember, you are Saved and spending eternity with God in paradise because you can not only read Scripture, but can understand it as well. Satan can't. So, you are smarter than the devil, smarter than satan, smarter than his demons and destined for eternal glory instead of eternal damnation, that is if you are saved.
The Lord God, Creator of all things be with you and guide you, may He chose you to be His.

Sometimes, especially in the times we living, it is best just to read a couple of chapters of Scripture and let God speak directly to our heart. Helping us get through the flu, tribulations, lack of understanding, or just through the day.
So, today, this 9th day of the year of our Lord two thousand and two, let us just read a bit from our owners manual, the Holy Bible and let God Almighty, Messiah Yeshua soothe our hearts and lives.
John Chapter Nine
1 And as Jesus passed by, He saw a man which was blind from his birth. 2 And His disciples asked Him, saying, "Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?" 3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. 4 I must work the works of Him that sent Me while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. 5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
6 When He had thus spoken, He spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, 7 and said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam. (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He(the blind man) went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
8 The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, "Is not this he that sat and begged?" 9 Some said, "This is he": others said, "He is like him": but he said, "I am he." 10 Therefore said they unto him, "how were thine eyes opened?" 11 He answered and said, "A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight." 12 Then said they unto him, "Where is He?" he said, "I know not."
13 They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind. 14 And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes. 15 Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, "He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see."
16 Therefore said some of the Pharisees, "This man(Jesus) is not of God, because He keepeth not the sabbath day." Others said, "How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles?" And there was a division among them. 17 They say unto the blind man again, "What sayest thou of Him, that He hath opened thine eyes?" He said, "He is a prophet."
18 But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight. 19 And they asked them, saying, "Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see?" 20 His parents answered them and said, "We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind: 21 But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself." 22 These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that He(Jesus) was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue. 23 Therefore said his parents, "He is of age; ask him."
24 Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, "Give God the praise: we know that this Man(Jesus) is a sinner. 25 He answered and said, "Whether He be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see." 26 Then said they to him again, "What did He to thee? how opened He thine eyes?" 27 He answered them, "I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be His disciples?"
28 Then they reviled him, and said, "Thou art His disciple; but we are Moses' disciples. 29 We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow(Jesus), we know not from whence He is." 30 The man answered and said unto them, "Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence He is, and yet He hath opened mine eyes. 31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth His will, him He heareth. 32 Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. 33 If this man were not of God, He could do nothing." 34 They answered and said unto him, "Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us?" And they cast him out.
35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when He had found him, He said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God? 36 He answered and said, "Who is He, Lord, that I might believe on Him?" 37 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen Him, and it is He that talketh with thee. 38 And he said, "Lord, I believe". And he worshipped Him.
39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind. 40 And some of the Pharisees which were with Him heard these words, and said unto Him, "Are we blind also?" 41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, 'We see'; therefore your sin remaineth.
John Chapter Ten
1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief(satan) and a robber(devils). 2 But He that entereth in by the door is the Shepherd of the sheep. 3 To Him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear His voice: and He calleth His own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. 4 And when He putteth forth His own sheep, He goeth before them, and the sheep follow Him: for they know His voice. 5 And a stranger(false teachers, prophets & religionist) will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. 6 This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which He spake unto them.
7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All that ever came before Me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door: by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. 10 The thief(satan & his) cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
11 I am the Good Shepherd: the Good Shepherd giveth His life for the sheep. 12 But he that is an hireling, and not the Shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf(satan) coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. 13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
14 I am the Good Shepherd, and know My sheep, and am known of Mine. 15 As the Father knoweth Me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down My life for the sheep. 16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold(Hebrews): them(non Hebrews) also I must bring, and they shall hear My voice; and there shall be one fold(born again church), and One Shepherd (God).
17 Therefore doth My Father love Me, because I lay down My life, that I might take it again. 18 No man taketh it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of My Father.
19 There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings. 20 And many of them said, "He hath a devil", and "He is mad"; and "why hear ye Him?" 21 Others said, "These are not the words of Him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?"
22 And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter. 23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch. 24 Then came the Jews round about Him, and said unto Him, "How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly." 25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in My Father's name, they bear witness of Me. 26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of My sheep, as I said unto you.
27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand. 29 My Father, which gave them to Me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of My Father's hand.
30 I and My Father are one.
31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him. 32 Jesus answered(asked) them, Many good works have I shewed you from My Father; for which of those works do ye stone Me?
33 The Jews answered Him, saying, "For a good work we stone Thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that Thou, being a man, makest Thyself God" 34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I SAID, YE ARE GODS (Psalm 82:6)? 35 If he(David) called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; 36 Say ye of Him(Jesus), whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, 'Thou blasphemest'; because I said, I am the Son of God?
37 If I do not the works of My Father, believe Me not. 38 But if I do, though ye believe not Me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in Me, and I in Him.
39 Therefore they sought again to take Him: but He escaped out of their hand, 40 and went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John at first baptized; and there He abode. 41 And many resorted unto Him, and said, "John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this Man were true." 42 And many believed on Him there.
Now, why not take a few minutes to pray for those, who through the teachings of their religions are not allowed to read, for themselves, the words of God. The jews, the muslims, the roman catholics, and the liberal social club christians.
Take a minute to pray for our president, a man who is starting to look and act more and more like his two immediate predecessors every day. Pray for strength for John Ashcroft. Pray the Lord will raise up a Paul for the jews, for the muslims, for the roman catholics and the liberal social club christians.
Ask God to open the eyes of the media, but mostly say "Your will be done Lord, not mine, but Thine." And "Come quickly Lord Jesus, please come quickly."
May our Lord and our Saviour, Messiah Yeshua be with you all this day, may He keep our troops safe and may He continue to open the eyes of those who are lost.
What you are about to read below, is an associated press article concerning a man who was caught smuggling bibles into communist China. This is the same communist China that forces abortion on women who have had one child, and recently condemned ten pastors of true Christian churches to death. This is the same communist China that President Bush, a self professed born again believer, has just bestowed permanent most favored trade status upon.
The same communist China that attacked and forced down and then held prisoner, one of our Navy aircraft and crews. The same communist China that has been hacking Christian sites in the USA. The same communist China that has on it's charts, as the most popular Video and DVD for Christmas sales in communist China, clips of people being forced, by the intense fires burning behind, over and under them, to jump from the twin towers on September 11th, 2001.
You need to read the below article carefully, then you must keep in mind that the Associated press is pro-communist china, not pro-USA, pro-Christian, pro-Christ, and individual Religious freedoms.
"WASHINGTON ---- The State Department is seeking an explanation from China about the reported arrest of a Hong Kong businessman for shipping Bibles to a Christian group.
President Bush is deeply concerned about the reports, State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said Monday.
The businessman, Li Guangqiang, 38, was indicted in the southeastern city of Fuqing on charges that he brought thousands of Bibles to the underground Christian group on the mainland, a human rights organization said Saturday.
The court in Fuqing said Li had "used a cult to undermine the enforcement of the law," the Hong Kong-based Information Center for Human Rights and Democracy said. It said Li might face the death penalty.
Li was accused of taking 33,080 Bibles to the Shouters Sect in two trips last April and May. Two members of the Christian group, Yu Zhudi and Lin Xifu, who made the request for the Bibles, were also indicted, the rights group said.
The Shouters Sect was banned in 1995 as an "aberrant religious organization," according to the human rights group Amnesty International.
The State Department is looking into the reports at Bush's request and has registered its concerns with the Chinese Embassy in Washington as well as with Chinese authorities in Beijing, Boucher said.
The spokesman noted Bush had expressed concern about religious freedom in China to President Jiang Zemin at a meeting of Pacific nations last October in Shanghai. © 2002 The Associated Press" end of article
Jesus tells us:
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name? and in Thy name have cast out devils? and in Thy name done many wonderful works?' 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
We need to pray for George Bush, for his fruits do not come close to proving his words. Now, after giving the communist Chinese everything they have asked for, now after he has sold the baby in the womb and the Christian in the slave camp down the drain, he is finally, supposedly upset? I am starting to have a hard time discerning between the fruits of William Jefferson Blythe Clinton and George Walker Bush. I know many of you will disagree with that, but I challenge you to show me where I am wrong. Show me what George Bush has done for the baby in the womb since his executive order limiting money for foreign abortions was overturned by the congress. Show me the executive orders implemented by Clinton that Bush has overturned. Show me where he has taken a stand for Christ and kept it.
I too, like George Bush, and am glad he is in the oval office instead of AlGore, but, we must recognize that he does not seem to be a friend of either the Lord of the baby in the womb, and certainly not the persecuted Christians throughout the world. We must be honest with ourselves and the Lord if our prayers for the president are to be honored by the Lord.
If we are to pray for Bush, we must go to the Lord in honesty, to go to the Lord thanking Him for directing the President, is to spit in the face of the Lord, for the Lord would not direct the president to continue supporting abortion and homosexuality, and by continuing to fund and appoint pro homosexual and abortion cabinet members. Aside from Attorney General John Ashcroft, who really needs your prayers, for he is surrounded by pro-abortion, pro-homosexual anti-Christ forces, who else has the President appointed to a high post that even tolerates Jesus?
You, my brothers and sisters you, hold the key, you can go to the Lord and ask His intervention, if not for the President, then for those about to be executed by the communist and the muslims throughout the world for the name and sake of Yeshua. Or you can be good little republicans, and continue to pray for a tax cut and the reelection of the likes of Maine's republican, left wing, anti-Christ, anti-life, anti-US Constitution US Senator Susan Collins.
Your choice, but remember the words of the Lord above, not all who say Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of God!
The Lord be with you and help you to understand what it means to be truly saved.
Abraham was born around 2,000 years after Man was expelled from the Garden of Eden and from being able to walk with and commune with God on a daily basis. Yet, when God spoke to Abraham, Abraham listened. Back before Abraham became Abraham, back when he was still Abram, God spoke and Abram, without a word of dissent or argument, obeyed. Yet, 2,000 years later, when God came to earth in the form of His Son, Yeshua, those who claimed to be the children of Abraham argued with Him till they were blue in the face. And much like those who deny Jesus today, they lied, twisted Scripture and did everything they could to not only avoid obeying the Lord, but to steer the dumb, the blind, the lazy, the shiftless, those who refused to read the word of God themselves, into following them straight away form God and into everlasting damnation.
2,000 years later, today, we see the same thing. We see preachers, priests, and rabbis that order those who follow them to close their Bibles, to use them only to record births, deaths, and marriages. And like the lazy, the shiftless, the dumb and the blind of then, those too lazy to take the time to seek for themselves, still follow blind and dumb guides straight into everlasting damnation.
And you know what? Many of us who profess to be Born Again Evangelical Christians, while not to blame, are just standing on the sidelines watching the parade of the damned. We stand on the sidelines, occasionally cheering, but mostly doing nothing. As you read today's study, John Chapter Eight, think back to Abram in Genesis chapter twelve, maybe it would be wise to go back and read the first four or so verses of Genesis 12.
1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives. 2 And early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came unto Him; and He sat down, and taught them.
3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto Him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, 4 they say unto Him, "Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest Thou?" 6 This they said, tempting Him, that they might have to accuse Him.
But Jesus stooped down, and with His finger wrote on the ground, as though He heard them not. 7. So when they continued asking Him, He lifted up Himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
8 And again He stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had lifted up Himself, and saw none but the woman, He said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? 11 She said, "No man, Lord." And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the Light of the world: he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
13 The Pharisees therefore said unto Him, "Thou bearest record of Thyself; Thy record is not true." 14 Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of Myself, yet My record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go. 15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man. 16 And yet if I judge, My judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent Me.
17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true. 18 I am one that bear witness of Myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of Me.
19 Then said they unto Him, "Where is Thy Father?" Jesus answered, Ye neither know Me, nor My Father: if ye had known Me, ye should have known My Father also. 20 These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as He taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on Him; for His hour was not yet come. 21 Then said Jesus again unto them, I go My way, and ye shall seek Me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.
22 Then said the Jews, Will He kill himself? because He saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come. 23 And He said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world. 24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am He, ye shall die in your sins.
25 Then said they unto Him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning. 26 I have many things to say and to judge of you: but He that sent Me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of Him. 27 They understood not that He spake to them of the Father.
28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am He, and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father hath taught Me, I speak these things. 29 And He that sent Me is with Me: the Father hath not left Me alone; for I do always those things that please Him. 30 As He spake these words, many believed on Him.
31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on Him, If ye continue in My word, then are ye My disciples indeed; 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. 33 They answered Him, "We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, 'Ye shall be made free'?" 34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. 35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. 36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
37 I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill Me, because My word hath no place in you. 38 I speak that which I have seen with My Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. 39 They answered and said unto Him, Abraham is our father.
Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham. 40 But now ye seek to kill Me, a Man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. 41 Ye do the deeds of your father.
Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God. 42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love Me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of Myself, but He sent Me.
43 Why do ye not understand My speech? even because ye cannot hear My words? 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe Me not.
46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe Me? 47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
48 Then answered the Jews, and said unto Him, "Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?" 49 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour My Father, and ye do dishonour Me. 50 And I seek not Mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth. 51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep My saying, he shall never see death.
52 Then said the Jews unto him, "Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, 'If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.' 53 Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest Thou Thyself?"
54 Jesus answered, If I honour Myself, My honour is nothing: it is My Father that honoureth Me; of whom ye say, that He is your God: 55 Yet ye have not known Him; but I know Him: and if I should say, I know Him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know Him, and keep His saying. 56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day: and he saw it, and was glad (Hebrews 11:14).
57 Then said the Jews unto Him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast Thou seen Abraham? 58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I Am (Exodus 3:14). 59 Then took they up stones to cast at Him: but Jesus hid Himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by. (John Chapter Eight ACP/KJV)
What about you? Are you standing there just watching the parade of the dammed? Do you take a few minutes each day and ask the Lord for revival of this country? Do you beg Him to open the President's eyes to the horrors of abortion? Do you ask Him to deal with the real terrorist, the leftist in the congress and he and those they serve? Do you take a moment to ask Him to help John Ashcroft get back in line?
Or do you just stand there and watch the parade? Do you watch as Madonna brags about aborting another baby. She now claims to have had 11 abortions. Do you watch as Britney Spears plays the pied piper and leads millions upon millions of our teens to everlasting servitude and slavery to the slime of all slimes, satan and eternity of damnation and unbearable, yet never-ending pain and suffering?
What about you? Are you watching the parade? Or are you obeying the Lord? John 8:31 Then said Jesus to those which believed on Him, If ye continue in My word, then are ye My disciples indeed;
The Lord be with you all, and may He give you the strength to interrupt the parade of the damned.
Since the fall of man, the original sin of Adam and Eve, man has been faced with one very tough choice, who to follow - the prince of this world, satan, or the King of kings, creator of all things, the Lord Jesus, the Christ. While the choice was tough 6,314 years ago when Adam and Eve first followed satan and went against God, the choice has become no less easy to make. As a matter of fact, with each and every day passing, the choice becomes more and more difficult for the Christian and he and she trying to become Christian. For with the passing of each day comes more and more wonderful things of this world to lure one away from choosing the Lord and eternal life and instead staying with satan and eternal damnation.
Think back to the things you learned about life on planet earth 2,000 years ago. Think of how people lived back before electric stoves, central air and heat, videos, airplanes, automobiles, homes with roofs that don't leak, theaters and planned parenthood. The prince of this world, satan, didn't have much to bargain with back then, but the choice was still a difficult one, most wanted nothing to do with the Christ, they instead wanted the few pleasures of the day, the few temporary pleasures of this world.
As you read though the seventh chapter of the Gospel of John, look at the struggle going on, some said yes this is the Christ and others used every excuse in the book to not accept Him. One group in particular, a group we know knew better, the high priest and his cohorts said "Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet." They knew Jesus was born in Bethlehem, for way back in Matthew chapter one we saw how the Wise men approached Herod, wanting to know where Jesus was to be born and Herod asked the high priest and his cohorts, who told Him Bethlehem. So even back them, satan, his minions and his ilk, and those in the office of high priest twisted scripture to make their lies look like truth.
Today we have even worse. We have men and women who are held in high esteem by the media and the politicians, men and women who, by their twisting of the Scripture, make the high priests back then look like saints. Today we have a pope leading millions straight to hell with his idolatry, rabbis that refuse to allow Jews to read the Old Testament and so called Christian leaders that tell us that allah is just another name for Yahweh. We have the likes of ABC and Peter Jennings using the public airwaves to lie and deceive people about the Lord, using their agents of satan as experts, to twist scripture to justify idolatry and discredit the Messiah.
1 After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for He would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill Him. 2 Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand. 3 His brethren(half brothers and sisters, Mary and Joseph's children) therefore said unto Him, "Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that Thy disciples also may see the works that Thou doest. 4 For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If Thou do these things, shew Thyself to the world." 5 For neither did his brethren believe in Him.
6 Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready. 7 The world cannot hate you; but Me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil. 8 Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast; for My time is not yet full come. 9 When He had said these words unto them, He abode still in Galilee.
10 But when His brethren were gone up, then went He also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret. 11 Then the Jews sought Him at the feast, and said, "Where is He?" 12 And there was much murmuring among the people concerning Him: for some said, "He is a good man": others said, "Nay; but He deceiveth the people." 13 Howbeit no man spake openly of Him for fear of the Jews.
14 Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught. 15 And the Jews marvelled, saying, "How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?" 16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not Mine, but His that sent Me. 17 If any man will do His will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of Myself. 18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but He that seeketh His glory that sent Him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in Him.
19 Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill Me? 20 The people answered and said, "Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to kill Thee?"
21 Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and ye all marvel. 22 Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the sabbath day circumcise a man. 23 If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at Me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day? 24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
25 Then said some of them of Jerusalem, "Is not this He, whom they seek to kill? 26 But, lo, He speaketh boldly, and they(the Jews) say nothing unto Him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?" 27 "Howbeit we know this Man whence He is: but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence He is."
28 Then cried Jesus in the temple as He taught, saying, Ye both know Me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of Myself, but He that sent Me is true, whom ye know not. 29 But I know Him: for I am from Him, and He hath sent Me.
30 Then they sought to take Him: but no man laid hands on Him, because His hour was not yet come. 31 And many of the people believed on Him, and said, "When Christ cometh, will He do more miracles than these which this Man hath done?" 32 The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning Him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take Him.
33 Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto Him that sent Me. 34 Ye shall seek Me, and shall not find Me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come. 35 Then said the Jews among themselves, "Whither will He go, that we shall not find Him? will He go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles? 36 What manner of saying is this that He said, Ye shall seek Me, and shall not find Me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come?"
37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto Me, and drink. 38 He that believeth on Me, as the scripture hath said, OUT OF HIS BELLY SHALL FLOW RIVERS OF LIVING WATER (De 18:15; Pr 18:4; Isa 12:3; 44:3; 55:1) . 39 (But this spake He of the Spirit, which they that believe on Him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.) 40 Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, "Of a truth this is the Prophet." 41 Others said, "This is the Christ".
But some said, "Shall Christ come out of Galilee? 42 Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?" 43 So there was a division among the people because of Him. 44 And some of them would have taken Him; but no man laid hands on Him. 45 Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, "Why have ye not brought "im?"
46 The officers answered, "Never man spake like this Man. 47 Then answered them the Pharisees, "Are ye also deceived?" 48 Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on Him? 49 But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed."
50 Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,) 51 "Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?" 52 They answered and said unto him, "Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet."
53 And every man went unto his own house. (John Chapter Seven ACP/KJV)
Yes, the choice is no easier today than it was back then, but one thing is for sure, the rules of God have not changed. Unless you are or become a Born Again Christian before you take your last breath, you are satan's and you will spend eternity serving him in the lake of fire. For the default is not heaven and eternal life, but hell and then the lake of fire and eternal damnation. All through the Bible it is clear that in order to gain salvation, one must believe on the Lord Jesus, the Christ. To do less is to condemn yourself to eternal damnation. Period. You can not work your way into heaven, you can not be good enough, you can not pray your way in via statues of so called saints, popes, priest or rabbis. You will either go to the Lord as a broken individual beseeching Him or you will be broken by Him and sentenced to that which you have chosen, eternal damnation.
Salvation is each individual,s responsibility. I can not save you, nor can anyone else, you and only you can go to the Lord and convince Him that you want to be saved through what He did on the cross. All I or any other can do is help you by giving you scripture. It is then between you and God the Holy Ghost. If He believes you are serious, then He will open your eyes, soften your heart and clean out your ears, making you a new creature, one worthy of spending eternity with Him, the Son and the Father.
Your choice, your salvation, your eternity.
I pray you make the right choice if you have not already and if you have, then I thank my God, Messiah Yeshua for you.
Let's take a few minutes to look at chapter six of the Gospel according to the Apostle John, the beloved Apostle.
1 After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias. 2 And a great multitude followed Him, because they saw His miracles which He did on them that were diseased.
3 And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there He sat with His disciples. 4 And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh. 5 When Jesus then lifted up His eyes, and saw a great company come unto Him, He saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat? 6 And this He said to prove him: for He himself knew what he would do. 7 Philip answered Him, "Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little." 8 One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto Him, 9 "There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?"
10 And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. 11 And Jesus took the loaves; and when He had given thanks, He distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would. 12 When they were filled, He said unto His disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. 13 Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.
14 Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, "This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world." 15 When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take Him by force, to make Him a king, He departed again into a mountain Himself alone. 16 And when even(evening) was now come, His disciples went down unto the sea, 17 and entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum.
And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them. 18 And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew. 19 So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid. 20 But He saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid. 21 Then they willingly received Him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.
22 The day following, when the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there, save that one whereinto His disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with His disciples into the boat, but that His disciples were gone away alone; 23 (Howbeit there came other boats from Tiberias nigh unto the place where they did eat bread, after that the Lord had given thanks:) 24 When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither His disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.
25 And when they had found Him on the other side of the sea, they said unto Him, "Rabbi, when camest thou hither?" 26 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek Me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled. 27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for Him hath God the Father sealed.
28 Then said they unto Him, "What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?" 29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on Him (Yeshua) whom He (Yahweh) hath sent. 30 They said therefore unto Him, "What sign shewest Thou then, that we may see, and believe Thee? what dost Thou work? 31 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, HE GAVE THEM BREAD FROM HEAVEN TO EAT."(Exodus 16:15)
32 Then Jesus said unto them,
Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but My Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is He(Jesus) which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.
34 Then said they unto Him, "Lord, evermore give us this bread."
35 And Jesus said unto them,
I am the bread of life: he that cometh to Me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on Me shall never thirst. 36 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen Me, and believe not. 37 All that the Father giveth Me shall come to Me; and him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out. 38 For I came down from heaven, not to do Mine own will, but the will of Him that sent Me.
39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent Me,
that of all which He hath given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
40 And this is the will of Him that sent Me,
that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on Him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise Him up at the last day.
41 The Jews then murmured at Him, because He said, I am the bread which came down from heaven. 42 And they said, "Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that He saith, I came down from heaven?"
43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
44 No man can come to Me, except the Father which hath sent Me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. 45 It is written in the prophets, AND THEY SHALL BE ALL TAUGHT OF GOD (Isaiah 54:14 & Jeremiah 31:34). Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto Me. 46 Not that any man hath seen the Father, save He(Yeshua) which is of God, He hath seen the Father.
47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me hath everlasting life. 48 I am that bread of life. 49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. 50 This (Yeshua) is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
51 I am the Living Bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this Bread, he shall live for ever: and the Bread that I will give is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
52 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, "How can this man give us His flesh to eat?"
53 Then Jesus said unto them,
Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His blood, ye have no Life in you. 54 Whoso eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 For My flesh is meat indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. 56 He that eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood, dwelleth in Me, and I in him.
57 As the living Father hath sent Me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth Me, even he shall live by Me.
58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.
59 These things said He in the synagogue, as He taught in Capernaum. 60 Many therefore of His disciples, when they had heard this, said, "This is an hard saying; who can hear it?"
61 When Jesus knew in Himself that His disciples murmured at it, He said unto them, Doth this offend you? 62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where He was before?
63 It is the Spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are Life. 64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray Him.
65 And He said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto Me, except it were given unto Him of My Father. 66 From that time many of His disciples went back, and walked no more with Him. 67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
68 Then Simon Peter answered Him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life. 69 And we believe and are sure that Thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God."
70 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? 71 He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray Him, being one of the twelve. (John Chapter Six ACP/KJV)
What would you have done? Had you been one of the Lord's disciples back then, and the Lord said to you: "Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His blood, ye have no Life in you. 54 Whoso eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 For My flesh is meat indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. 56 He that eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood, dwelleth in Me, and I in him."
What would you have done? Would you have snickered as so many do today as they read these verses? Would you have packed your bag and left as most of His disciples did back then? Or would you, like Peter, simply said: "Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life. 69 And we believe and are sure that Thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God."
Well, the question is valid, even today, what are you doing? Are you following Yeshua? Or are you following satan? You are following and serving one or the other you know. As in our war against terrorism, according to president Bush, there are no fence sitters, you are either on the one side or the other. And that is the way it is with the battle going on for souls between the King of Kings, Yeshua and the slime of all slime, satan. You are either on the side of the Creator or the damned.
And for those who say: "What sign shewest Thou then, that we may see, and believe Thee?" I will tell you what sigh the Lord shows His, while He shows no signs to the lost, the unsaved, the heathens, the infidels, He does show His signs on a daily basis, He answers our prayers. We pray, He answers, He does things for us that we know could not have been done without Him. So, you want to see a sigh? First believe on Him, become His and then you will see both signs and wonders.
The Lord God Creator of the universe one with Yahweh, Messiah Yeshua be with you all.
From the January 2nd Washington Times:
"Democrats, in the name of tolerance, plan to demonize conservative Christians as being like the Taliban, according to an article in Newsweek.
Democrats "are planning a daring assault on the most critical turf in politics: the cultural mainstream," political correspondent Howard Fineman writes. "The theory goes like this. Our enemy in Afghanistan is religious extremism and intolerance. It's therefore more important than ever to honor the ideals of tolerance ---- religious, sexual, racial, reproductive ---- at home.
The GOP is out of the mainstream, some Democrats will argue [this] year, because it's too
dependent upon an intolerant 'religious right,'" Mr. Fineman said. "This is an incendiary battle plan
---- essentially comparing the GOP right with the Taliban ---- designed to draw an outraged
response from the president. Then Democrats would have Bush just where they wanted him: in a
firefight at home."
The 'religious right'
This probably won't come as a surprise to anyone, but the New York Times appears to be working off the same page as the Democratic Party. In a front-page story Thursday, the newspaper referred to Islamic radicals as "the religious right.""
So, the way tolerance will be taught by the democrats, which include the teachers unions of this country, will be, to be intolerant of Christians. Not all Christians mind you, only those that are Born Again or fundamental Christians. It will be ok to be a Christian who doesn't accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour, a Christian who ignores the Apostles Paul's letter to the Romans:
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. Romans 10:9-11
Now, if the intolerant left does not get you, the IRS seems to determined to get you through the pulpit. From Wednesdays FreeRepublic.com:
"The most prominent and successful certified public accountant firm in the nation today, that specializes in keeping churches out of trouble with the Internal Revenue Service, is now boldly saying to the pastors of America that they not only have to be "ordained by God, but also the IRS."
They also say that the IRS is dictating terms to the churches by declaring in clear and no uncertain terms that, "The government doesn't want your Bible, they want your checkbook!" In seminars all over the US, Chitwood and Chitwood of Chattanooga, Tennessee, is repeating this startling announcement to pastors and church leaders. Without so much as a blush, Michael Chitwood, the main speaker, says, besides the above quotes, "Pastor, if you don't get your house in order, get ready, you are going to have a jail ministry" as he practically screams out to those present as to what pastors and church leaders must do to avoid jail time and the confiscation of church property by the federal government.
Besides giving the pastor his job description, which is based on the Roman Catholic model of worship and polity, the IRS is demanding many other things that are clearly designed to make the IRS Commissioner the new head of the churches in America Some of these demands are as follows: The church must collect a Federal ID (Social Security) number from visiting evangelists, missionaries, preachers and singers before they invite them to the pulpit. ..."
So, the IRS uses the Roman Catholic church as a standard to determine whether a pastor is a pastor or not. They, the IRS, can't find the time to audit any abortionist or abortion mills, but have no trouble attacking pastors and establishing, like their counterparts and mentors in communist China, the rules on who and who is not a pastor.
Now, news like the two examples above will have some pulling out their hair and beating on their breast, but for me it is one more reason to Praise GOD! Praise Him because these things are one more sign of the coming persecution of US Christians and that leads to the return of the Lord. For unlike the IRS, the congress, the senate, the democrats and the majority of the republicans, I not only believe in the words of the Lord below, I am absolutely convinced that every word out of the mouth of Jesus are the words of GOD and are there fore absolutely true and infallible!
And ye shall be hated of all men for My name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. Matthew 10:22
And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for My name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. Matthew 19:29
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
And ye shall be hated of all men for My name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. Mark 13:13
So, don't be upset by the news that the democrats hate you, that the left wing main stream media will join them in vilifying you while putting sodomites, homosexuals, lesbians, pornographers, liars, cheats and adulterers on a pedestal, for it has been written in God's book for thousands of years, that in the end times, what is wrong will be made right and what is right will be made to appear wrong. And don't just think it will be the left wing democrats only, they will be joined by the equally hateful and Christ denying left of the republican party as well. PRAISE GOD!!!!
Now it is time for you, as a Christian man to make some hard choices. One, are you going to stand by while this happens? Are you going to let your children and your wife be harmed by those who are out to hurt them? Are you going to put your job ahead of your family? Are you going to put your family ahead of Jesus?
Time to get your priorities straight guys. Time to get on your knees and go to the Lord begging for help. Time to open His book while your on your knees and beg His help in understanding. Time to stop being a politically correct husband and father and start being a Christian husband and father. And as for you wives? Well, it is time for you to put ophra, her show and her books where she and the rest of the liberals belong, in the trash heap. It is time for you to start being a Christian wife. And that means put the bickering aside, put the whining aside and listen to and obey your husband. The left has declared war on you and your family, you better fight it as a family. If they can divide and separate you, they will win, you can only stay strong and unified by fighting as instructed in God book, the Bible. You can only stand together using the instructions supplied you in God's book the Bible. You can only withstand the horrors to come if you understand and abide by the rolls God has chosen for husband, wife and children.
Stop looking to the Bush administration, start looking to your King, the King of kings, the Lord Jesus, the CHRIST! Look at the way the president has turned his back on the baby in the womb, the way he has relished taking away even more constitutional rights, what makes you think he give two hoots for you? Does not the IRS report directly to him? Can he not instruct them to turn from preachers and audit abortionist? But has he? Will he?
Remember the words of the Apostle Paul:
For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I know not. For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:
Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you. (Philippians 1: 21-24)
And may Yeshua be with and help you, for times are about to get rough. You can accept these times to come or you can join the left and persecute those of us who would rather die than turn on the Lord. For accepting the world is turning on the Lord. You can not serve both the world and the Christ. Choose!
Seriously now, what are some of your new year resolutions? Or, for that matter, do you even make new years resolutions? I guess you could say that I really don't. Or at least I don't sit down and make a list of things I have intentions, great or otherwise, to keep or do in the next year.
But. Maybe we should. Maybe we should all make at least one resolution for the new year, one that we absolutely intend to keep. And that one is this, we should get to know what it means to be a Christian. If I were to bump into you on the street and ask you, "Are you a Christian?" how would you answer? If I then followed up by asking you just what it meant to be a Christian? How would you answer that?
If you were to ask me those questions, my answer would be Yes, I am a Christian, a Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian, the only kind of Christian. For there is no other type of Christian. If you then asked me just what that meant, I would be able to answer you, based not upon denominational theory, but, the teachings of the Holy Word of God, the Holy Bible. Why could I do that? Simple. I can do that, because I read my bible. I don't read it looking for justification of my sins, I don't read it looking for ways out, I read it to see what God has to say. I don't read it looking to read between the lines nor to see if I can figure out what God really meant, I read it just as Paul told Timothy to read it.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: (So)That the man of God (Born again Christians) may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. 2 Timothy 3:16&17
As Peter said in his letter to the Christians scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, those he called, the elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ, (1 Peter 1) just before Peter was martyred.
Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance. For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but(we) were eyewitnesses of His majesty.
For He(Jesus) received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to Him from the Excellent Glory, This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with Him(Jesus) in the holy mount.
We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. 2 Peter 1:15-21
In other words, I know what it means to be Christian, not because I'm smarter than any other, but because I take the time to study He whom I follow. He whom I have given my life to. He whom I desire to be with. The Lord, Messiah Yeshua. Wouldn't it be a wise thing for each of you to make one little new years resolution, one to get to know our Lord better? A resolution to read and study His word every day. Not looking for loop holes, not looking for ways to justify your sins, but looking and reading to understand who Jesus is and what it means to be His, to be a Christian
Better yet, why not get your family to join you in making the same resolution and work together each day to full fill that resolution. You know something? I don't believe people who tell me they are Saved, and know nothing about the word of God or even know who the Word of God is. When one tells me they are a Christian, yet also tells me that they don't have the time to read and study their bible, I don't believe that person is a Christian. They have time to read the newspapers, watch the news, listen to the radio, read trade or professional journals, play games, sleep, eat and drink, yet they have no time to read about the One they have supposedly given their lives to? Sorry, I don't believe it. Nope, if you have time to do all the things of this world, yet have no time to learn about the Creator, than you are of this world! And you are not a Christian!
One of the nice things about having given up the idea of asking for money, for financial support or any kind of support is that I no longer have to worry about hurting peoples feelings. You see, when we sere dependent upon people sending in money, I kind of had to watch what I preached for fear of driving some off. As many of you have noticed, I no longer ask for money or any kind of support, so now I don't have to worry about hurting anyone's feelings. Thank God!
Maybe I have made a resolution, made it without even realizing I had made it, my resolution is to be absolutely honest and to call a spade a spade, to no longer let phony social club Christians get away with telling me they are saved. But instead to challenge any an all to prove it. Prove it by using Scripture.
The Lord be with you, may He help you to do both, make the resolution to get to know Him better, through prayer and reading His book and helping you to keep that resolution.
Our Father who is in heaven, Holy and Sacred is Thy name.
Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done, here on and in earth as it is in heaven.
Oh Father how I pray that Thou will forgive our sins, forgive us for the things we have done, the things we have said, the things we have thought and the things we have dreamt, for as man our hearts, thoughts and deeds are continually evil. Oh Lord forgive us and help us to forgive those who have offended us.
Yeshua I pray that You will give us our daily bread, not just the bread of our substance Lord, but that bread which is Your word, for as You have taught us Lord, man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.
Oh Lord God in heaven, Creator of all things in earth, on earth and in all the heavens above, I beseech Thee Lord that Thou would keep us safe from the evil one, his minions and his ilk and those who serve him knowingly and unknowingly. That Thou would keep us from temptation, keeping us under Your arm and sheltering us from the temptations of this world.
Yeshua please bless us, our families and ours. Please hear our prayers and bring to salvation those lost whom we pray for. Help us Lord to find the courage to do what is right in Your sight, forgoing the evils, temptations and rights of this world that contradict Your word and Your rules.
Help us Lord to serve You. And Lord I pray that You will cause a revival to be in our nation, that You will raise up a Paul for the muslim hordes and let it be Thy will that my prayers be Your will for it is your will that counts, not ours. Help us Lord to pray the things that are Your will.
For Lord all things are Thine, for heaven is Thy home and earth Thy footstool.
May our Lord Yeshua be with and bless all of you this coming year. May he give you the strength you will need to see this coming year through without falling victim to the horrors that are sure to surface. May He give you the strength to not deny Him and your responsibilities as Christian men in the year to come as the government takes more and more of your constitutional and God given rights and freedoms. May He give you the strength to turn to His word when in doubt. May He give you the strength to fight for and protect those who He has entrusted into your hands, your wife, your children, your elderly parents and your fellow servant of the Lord.
May our Lord and our Saviour keep us from harm and any more torture or pain than we are able to sustain. May He come soon. And may He deal with those who kill babies trapped in the womb, may He open the eyes of those women who take their babies to be slaughtered. And may He do to those who do abortions and those who support and protect abortion, what the abortionist does to the baby, may He give them equal pain for the pain they cause.
Thy will Lord be done.
