No man can serve two masters

As CHRISTmas approaches, we must realize that, No man can serve two masters, for he will love the one and hate the other. We can see the truth of this in today's US society. You either love the USA and her sovereignty or you love the UN. You cannot love both. You either desire the freedom of our Constitutional Republic through our written Constitution or you desire a one world government where all peoples of the world are supposedly treated equally as subjects by the UN. But, as we have learned from the failed communist governments of the world as well as the current communist governments of the world, the idea is fiction, for it has not worked.

It is much the same with us, we must choose Christ and freedom or satan and slavery. But, as in the fight for all freedom, you must choose freedom, for the default is slavery in government and slavery to satan. To be free you must choose to fight for freedom, to stop the communist movement in it's tracks. And like wise to insure your eternal freedom, you must choose Jesus, for the default in both is slavery. But how can you choose when you know nothing about the choices? When the US Constitution is not taught in the schools, when there is no comparison drawn between the horrors of slavery under a one world communist government and the freedoms of our Republic, one can not choose for one only knows what one is taught and hears daily in the news.

And so it is with making the choice between Christ and satan. Freedom and eternal bliss and slavery in eternal damnation of pain and never ending suffering. But how can one make that choice if one never hears the words of Jesus, never hears or reads His writings? All to often today, the man or woman in the pulpit is preaching, not what Christ taught, but what some man or woman knows He meant to say. And when one is unaware of what Christ really said and really stands for, one can not make a proper and informed choice. For the Lord forces no one, He only comes to those who ask Him to come into their hearts.

So, let us continue with our study of our CHRISTmas birthday Child and what better way to study Him than through His autobiography.

Matthew Chapter Six

1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. 2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: 4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret Himself shall reward thee openly.

5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. 8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask Him. 9 After this manner therefore pray ye:

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever.

Amen.

14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face; 18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. 23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

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

25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall He not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Matthew Chapter Seven

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? 10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask Him?

12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

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.

24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of Mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of Mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at His doctrine: 29 For He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.


Matthew chapters 6&7 ACP/KJV

Did you know that your son, if both you and he are saved, is not only your son, he is also your brother. Ladies did you realize that the same goes for your daughters, for if both of you are saved, she is both your daughter and your sister. How would satan have you treat your child who is also your brother or sister? Now How does Jesus teach you to treat them, to judge their behavior? Do we not serve a wonderful Lord? As we move toward the celebration of the birthday of He whom we know to be the Messiah, isn't it wonderful to get to know Him better and better.

As we move through the Lord's own book, His autobiography, we will get to know our Lord and Savior even better. And which amongst you would does not desire to know all there is to know about He whom you serve?

May He bless you for taking the time to study Him and His teachings. And may He help you to be more and more like Him as each and every day passes by.

In the holy name of Yeshua I pray to the Father above for blessings and love for you and yours.

Amen.

What kind of God is our Lord Yeshua

We sing songs to Him, we say prayers to Him, but just what type of God is our Lord Jesus? Have you ever taken a moment to look at the characteristics of our Messiah? Over the last few months we have heard our Lord Jesus compared to allah, is Jesus anything like the one who commands his slaves to kill themselves while destroying four thousand non combatants? Is our God anything like the god of the Chinese? A god who oversees the forced abortion of hundreds of million s of babies caught and trapped in the womb? Is our God anything like the gods of those who worship cows?

What better way to understand the one we call God, than to read His word in His book, the Holy Bible. Today let us look into the face of our Messiah, Christ Jesus and heed His instructions to us in our dealings with others.

1 And seeing the multitudes, He (Jesus) went up into a mountain: and when He was set, His disciples came unto Him: 2 And He opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,

3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for My sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. 14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

21 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: 22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; 24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. 26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

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

29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. 30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: 32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths: 34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: 35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. 36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. 37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: 39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also. 41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. 42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? 48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Matthew 5 1-48 ACP/KJV

Are you starting to see the love that is our Lord? Are you starting to see that the God we serve, the Almighty creator of all heaven and earth, is not like allah or one would have you bending down to cows, aborting babies, killing folks on their way to work with stolen planes. Do you see anything in the face of our Lord that would have you thinking that any man is better than another? Oh, how I pray to God that those whom God has given special gifts, like doctors, dentists, and the like would use their gifts as the Lord would have them, not just for profit.

May He, the Lord Jesus, the Christ bless you all this day, may He be with you and give you His peace and understanding of His word.

Amen.

He is our King

As we read today's Scripture, Matthew chapters three and four, we will see that Jesus is in deed our King. In Chapter three John the Baptist makes that abundantly clear and in chapter four satan makes it clear by his attempt to get the Lord to worship him and to stoop down to the level of proving Himself to a disgraced, fallen angel, a miserable little creation. In chapter three John not only acknowledges the Lord but God Himself tells John that Jesus is His Son and that not only that, but that God the Father is proud of Jesus. In chapter four, Jesus dismisses satan out of hand by thoroughly rebuking him, not once, but three times. With every point satan tries to make, the Lord literally tells satan that he is wrong and then corrects him as one would an errant delinquent.

It is important that we know our King, just as it is important that those who serve worldly leaders know whom they serve, for otherwise their food stamps, socialized medicine and other earthly given things of this world, may be cut off. If it is important for those who call this planet their home to know their kings, how much more so for us to know our King. And the only real way of knowing our king is to read His book, the one with His life story in it, the Holy Bible.

So, without further ado, let us ask the Lord to help us to understand what He has dictated in His book so that we may better know Him whom we serve, Him who created us and all things, Him who shed His blood so that we could be free. Messiah Yeshua, Jesus the Christ.

Matthew Chapter Three

1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, 2 And saying, "Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." 3 For this is he (John) that was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying, THE VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS, PREPARE YE THE WAY OF THE LORD, MAKE HIS PATHS STRAIGHT (Isaiah 40:3).

4 And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey. 5 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan, 6 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.

7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, "O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance: 9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. 10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but He (Jesus) that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: 12 Whose fan is in His hand, and He will throughly purge His floor, and gather His wheat into the garner; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire."

13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. 14 But John forbad him, saying, "I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?"

15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.

16 And Jesus, when He was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him (John), and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon Him (Jesus): 17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Matthew Chapter Four

1 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. 2 And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, He was afterward an hungred. 3 And when the tempter (satan) came to Him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 4 But He answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

5 Then the devil taketh Him up into the holy city, and setteth Him on a pinnacle of the temple, 6 And saith unto Him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

8 Again, the devil taketh Him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth Him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve.

11 Then the devil leaveth Him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto Him.

12 Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, He departed into Galilee; 13 And leaving Nazareth, He came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim: 14 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, 15 THE LAND OF ZABULON, AND THE LAND OF NEPHTHALIM, BY THE WAY OF THE SEA, BEYOND JORDAN, GALILEE OF THE GENTILES; 16 THE PEOPLE WHICH SAT IN DARKNESS SAW GREAT LIGHT (Jesus); AND TO THEM WHICH SAT IN THE REGION AND SHADOW OF DEATH LIGHT (Jesus) IS SPRUNG UP (Isaiah 9:1&2).

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

18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. 19 And He saith unto them, Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men. 20 And they straightway left their nets, and followed Him.

21 And going on from thence, He saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and He called them. 22 And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed Him.

23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. 24 And His fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto Him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and He healed them.

25 And there followed Him great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judaea, and from beyond Jordan.

(Matthew chapters three and four ACP/KJV) Lord, we thank Thee for giving us Your word so that we can better know You and serve You. For Lord how much more important it is for us to know You than it is for those of the world to know whom they follow, many of them refuse to even acknowledge he whom they serve and cry out to you, without coming to you, in times of anguish. Jesus Your word strengthens our ability to serve and believe, for at times, we are weak, we are weak because of the horrors we see around us. But Your word strengthens us giving us hope and trust and the knowledge that we are but visitors here. Spending the days and nights as one who is traveling to a distant land. Some stay in four star hotels and others of us in Motel Sixes, while still others of us are relegated to the hovels of this earth. But through Your word we know that this is but temporary and one day You will call us home to be with You, the Father and the Holy Ghost in paradise. So help us to understand Your word Lord, help us to understand Your word and You, help us to know whom it is we call King, You Lord, Messiah Yeshua.

Amen.

Let us focus on the Christ

We are now within a month of the time we use to celebrate the birth of the Lord Jesus. How much do you know about Jesus? Do you know as much about your master as you do your wife? how about as much as you know about your best friend? Your boss? How much do you really know about the Lord? Do you know it is Him in whom John refers to as the Word and the Light? Do you know that His name in Hebrew is Yeshua?

Let us settle back and study Jesus. For between now and CHRISTmas, unless something comes up, we will be focusing on He who shed His blood for His creations, His creatures, us.

Matthew Chapter One

1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

2 Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren;

3 And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram; 4 And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon; 5 And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse; 6 And Jesse begat David the king;

and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias; 7 And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa; 8 And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Ozias; 9 And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias; 10 And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias; 11 And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon:

12 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel; 13 And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor; 14 And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud; 15 And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob; 16 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.

17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.

18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as His mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. 20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. 21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call His name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins.

22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, 23 BEHOLD, A VIRGIN SHALL BE WITH CHILD, AND SHALL BRING FORTH A SON, AND THEY SHALL CALL HIS NAME EMMANUEL (Isaiah 7:14), which being interpreted is, God with us.

24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: 25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called His name JESUS.

Matthew Chapter Two

1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, 2 Saying, "Where is He that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen His star in the east, and are come to worship Him."

3 When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. 5 And they said unto him, "In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet, 6 'AND THOU BETHLEHEM, IN THE LAND OF JUDA, ART NOT THE LEAST AMONG THE PRINCES OF JUDA: FOR OUT OF THEE SHALL COME A GOVERNOR, THAT SHALL RULE MY PEOPLE ISRAEL(Micah 5:2).'"

7 Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared. 8 And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, "Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found Him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship Him also." 9 When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.

10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. 11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary His mother, and fell down, and worshipped Him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto Him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

12 And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way. 13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, "Arise, and take the young child and His mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy Him." 14 When he (Joseph) arose, he took the young child and His mother by night, and departed into Egypt: 15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, OUT OF EGYPT HAVE I CALLED MY SON (Hosea 11:1).

16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men. 17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, 18 IN RAMA WAS THERE A VOICE HEARD, LAMENTATION, AND WEEPING, AND GREAT MOURNING, RACHEL WEEPING FOR HER CHILDREN, AND WOULD NOT BE COMFORTED, BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT (Jeremiah 31:15).

19 But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, 20 Saying, "Arise, and take the young child and His mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the young child's life." 21 And he arose, and took the young child and His mother, and came into the land of Israel. 22 But when he heard that Archelaus did reign in Judaea in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither: notwithstanding, being warned of God in a dream, he turned aside into the parts of Galilee:

23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, HE SHALL BE CALLED A NAZARENE (paraphrase fromJudges 13:5).

Matthew Chapters one and two ACP/KJV

As we approach CHRISTmas, let us concentrate not on the things of this world, but instead on He who created the world, for it is not through the things of this world that we have salvation, but through the Blood of the Lord, messiah Yeshua. I'm not going to use a lot of commentary, so, instead ask God to help you understand. Simply say to Him, Lord help me, Thy servant to understand thy word, so that i will better know my Master. For as Your Son, my Lord and my Saviour Jesus has said, man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of GOD. In Jesus holy name I ask this of the Father.

Amen.

First things first

Ever heard the old saying, "first things first"? I'm sure you have, for just about everyone has. Which of us as kids did not hear those very words uttered from the mouth of our parents, as we wanted to do something fun before something closely akin to work. But what does God mean when He says "First things first"? Could it be that God means first commandment s first? If so, what are God's first commandments?

And God spake all these words, saying, I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

Thou shalt have no other gods before Me!

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

Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain. Exodus 20:1-7

Do you wear a cross? There is nothing wrong with wearing a cross, as long as you wear it to remind you of what the Lord did for you. But if you wear it to pray to or hold up in your hands as if praying through, that is idolatry.

Do you have a nativity scene for CHRISTmas? There is absolutely nothing wrong with having a nativity scene and displaying it at CHRISTmas or for that fact all year long. As long as you are displaying it not as an object to be prayed to or through, but as something to remind you of how God the Father came to earth as God the Son to save us from our sins and to give us the only way to salvation.

Do you say things like "Oh my God" at times other than in prayer? If so, you are probably using the Lord's name in vain. Do you say things like "Gosh darn"? If so, you are using the Lord's name in vain. How about "jeepers crippers"? Again, if you do, stop it immediately for you are in fact using God's name in vain. Do you refer to CHRISTmas as x mas? Well, let me ask you a question, how would you feel if someone was referring to your child by something other than his name? God feels no less strongly, guaranteed. Not only should you refuse to do such, you should refuse to associate with or support anyone, store or individual who does.

As we approach the time of the year we use to remind ourselves of God's love, so pure and so absolutes, that He left His throne in heaven and came to earth as a little innocent baby boy, just so that you would have the way to avoid an eternity of damnation and have the opportunity to, through His Blood, spend eternity in paradise. Why not use this time to get in the habit of obeying God's commandments, first things first.

How about reading, studying and obeying His first commandments.

And God spake all these words, saying, I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

Thou shalt have no other gods before Me!

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

Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain. Exodus 20:1-7

And maybe, just maybe, one person, maybe just one person, will, by your language and actions regarding God Almighty and His name, come to realize that you are indeed a Christian.

The Lord God of the universe, Messiah Yeshua be with you all and may His grace abound upon you and yours, keeping you safe and close to Him, hearing your prayers and opening His word to you though His Son, the Word.

Amen.



Weekend of, November 24th & 25th, 2001

So, now we pay the price

So, where did Bin Laden, Arafat and the rest of the allah worshiping terrorists come from? Have you given any thought to this? The mainstream media will tell you a pack of lies, misleading you to think and believe that they are the result of our being a more wealthy country than they, that we are responsible because we go over to their countries and intervene. As usual, the mainstream media is nothing more than a front for the word of satan and lies repeatedly.

Bin Laden, Arafat and the rest of those who worship satan by the name of allah are the result of Saul and his refusal to abide by and follow the orders of God Almighty. For when Saul was the king of Israel, God told him to eliminate from the face of the earth the forefather of today's allah worshipers, but Saul refused to abide by God's instructions and instead caused himself to be fired and us to be plagued by the descendants of those whom Saul spared.

Samuel also said unto Saul, The LORD sent me to anoint thee to be king over His people, over Israel: now therefore hearken thou unto the voice of the words of the LORD. Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt. Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.

And Saul gathered the people together, and numbered them in Telaim, two hundred thousand footmen, and ten thousand men of Judah. And Saul came to a city of Amalek, and laid wait in the valley.

And Saul said unto the Kenites, "Go, depart, get you down from among the Amalekites, lest I destroy you with them: for ye shewed kindness to all the children of Israel, when they came up out of Egypt". So the Kenites departed from among the Amalekites. And Saul smote the Amalekites from Havilah until thou comest to Shur, that is over against Egypt. And Saul took Agag the king of the Amalekites alive, and utterly destroyed all the people with the edge of the sword.

But Saul and the people spared Agag, and the best of the sheep, and of the oxen, and of the fatlings, and the lambs, and all that was good, and would not utterly destroy them: but every thing that was vile and refuse, that they destroyed utterly. 1 Samuel 1-9

Saul had been instructed by God to destroy all of the Amalekites, but he didn't. And this came back to haunt Israel from that day forward and now us. All because one man refused to obey God. And now, we, like Israel, pay the price. And unless we and or Israel finish the job, by hunting down every last one of the descendants of those spared by Saul, we will keep on and on paying the price. And since God tells us that there will be no end of this, no peace till He returns. We can try to finish what Saul started but unfortunately we will not succeed. Probably because we as a nation have not the stomach for slaughter and because we have newsmen like Peter Jennings.

Lest you think that none but Agag was spared, remember those Kenites that Saul spared? Well, seems they were not all Kenites. For read with me who in the end kills Saul.

Now it came to pass after the death of Saul, when David was returned from the slaughter of the Amalekites, and David had abode two days in Ziklag; Notice here who David is fighting? Is it not the Amalekites?

It came even to pass on the third day, that, behold, a man came out of the camp from Saul with his clothes rent, and earth upon his head: and so it was, when he came to David, that he fell to the earth, and did obeisance. And David said unto him, "From whence comest thou?" And he said unto David, "Out of the camp of Israel am I escaped."

And David said unto him, "How went the matter? I pray thee, tell me." And he answered, That "the people are fled from the battle, and many of the people also are fallen and dead; and Saul and Jonathan his son are dead also."

And David said unto the young man that told him, "How knowest thou that Saul and Jonathan his son be dead?" And the young man that told him said, "As I happened by chance upon mount Gilboa, behold, Saul leaned upon his spear; and, lo, the chariots and horsemen followed hard after him. And when he looked behind him, he saw me, and called unto me. And I answered, Here am I. And he said unto me, ‘Who art thou?' And I answered him, I am an Amalekite. He said unto me again, ‘Stand, I pray thee, upon me, and slay me: for anguish is come upon me, because my life is yet whole in me.'

So I stood upon him, and slew him, because I was sure that he could not live after that he was fallen: and I took the crown that was upon his head, and the bracelet that was on his arm, and have brought them hither unto my lord." 2 Samuel 1-10

Did you notice, that when Saul asked who he was, what he answered? Look, " And he said unto me, ‘Who art thou?' And I answered him, I am an Amalekite." When Saul refused to abide by the orders given by God, God allowed one of those that Saul spared to render justice upon Saul for failing to obey God.

Today, as much as the press and the liberals hate it, our men in Afghanistan are more closely following the orders of God than did Saul. And unlike Saul, our men have to fight not only the enemy of the descendants of the Amalekites that Saul should have killed, but political correctness, the main stream media, the liberals and leftist within and without our government and the democratic leadership of the US House and Senate.

Let us raise our voices to God Almighty asking His protection and Salvation for those brave men who are trying desperately to finish what Saul so long ago should have done. As we sit here at home eating turnkey leftovers, let us thank God for those brave men wearing our uniform and fighting God's war.

Amen.

Ah turkey leftovers

Well, I would guess it safe to assume that one and all had a wonderful, blessed and relaxing Thanksgiving day. Now comes turkey leftovers, ah, but, praise be to God, since we as a nation have been enjoying turkey for Thanksgiving for so many years, there are tons of great recipes for left over turkey.

So, let us not focus on left over turkey, but instead, what we shall thank God for next year on the day of Thanksgiving, only 364 days from now.

This afternoon, why not make a box, a box about one cubit long by two thirds of a cubit wide by one half a cubit high. Make a lid for the box that can easily be taken off, but with a slit in the top large enough to slide an index card through it and into the box without lifting the top off. This box will be your thanks be to God box. It can be for one, for two, for a whole family, for a church or whatever. It is a box in which every prayer which God answers for you is written down on an index card and placed in the box. Then, next year, on the day we call Thanksgiving, yet the Bible refers to as the feast of Tabernacles, you can read the number of times God has heard and answered your prayers. You will be amazed! Some of the prayers answered will be prayers prayed just the night before, others will be answers to prayers that you have been praying for years.

Now, I need to ask you a question first and then I'm going to make some really easy suggestions for you.

First the question. In light of all the wonderful things the Lord has done for you, all the prayers He has answered for you, all the things He has done for you that you gave thanks for yesterday, what have you done for Him? How are you saying thanks to Jesus? What do you do to show your gratitude for His gifts to you? I know that sounds like several questions, but it really is only one, phrased a couple of different ways.

Now my suggestions, and these really are easy to do. You can of course do more, but this is a half way decent start.

One: Take on a prayer project, take on something that you will pray for daily, in addition to those things you are already praying for.

Two: Do no business with companies that use x-mas instead of CHRISTmas. And, if you could, just give them a call or send them a card telling them why you have chosen to not shop at their store or buy their product or service. And if you can, continue this boycott till they change their sign, card or whatever it was that used x-mas instead of CHRISTmas.

Three: do no business with businesses and countries that support abortion. This would mean buying nothing made in China.

And four: Strive to make you relationship with the ones God has given you, your wife and your kids, better each day.

That's it. Now may the Lord our God, Messiah Yeshua bless you and yours, may He give you peace and protection in these days of uncertainty. May He bless you and protect you and yours and hear your prayers.

Amen.



Wednesday and Thursday, November 21st & 22nd, 2001

Let us thank Yeshua

John Chapter One

1 In the beginning was the Word (Jesus), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same (Jesus) was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by Him (Jesus); and without Him was not any thing made that was made.

4 In Him was life; and the life was the Light of men. 5 And the Light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through Him might believe. 8 He (John) was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. 11 He came unto His own(the Jews), and His own received Him not. 12 But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. 15 John bare witness of Him, and cried, saying, "This was He of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for He was before me." 16 And of His fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, He hath declared Him.

19 And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, "Who art thou?" 20 And he (John) confessed, and denied not; but confessed, "I am not the Christ." 21 And they asked him, "What then? Art thou Elias?" And he saith, "I am not." "Art thou that prophet?" And he answered, "No."

22 Then said they unto him, "Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?" 23 He said, "I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias." 24 And they which were sent were of the Pharisees. 25 And they asked him, and said unto him, "Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet?" 26 John answered them, saying, "I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not; 27 He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose."

28 These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing. 29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, "Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. 30 This is He of whom I said, 'After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for He was before me.' 31 And I knew Him not: but that He should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water."

32 And John bare record, saying, "I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon Him. 33 And I knew Him not: but He that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, the same is He which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. 34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God."

35 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples; 36 And looking upon Jesus as He walked, he saith, "Behold the Lamb of God!"

37 And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. 38 Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, "Rabbi", (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) "where dwellest Thou?" 39 He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where He dwelt, and abode with Him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.

40 One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. 41 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, "We have found the Messiah," which is, being interpreted, the Christ. 42 And he (Andrew) brought him(Peter) to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, He said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, a stone.

43 The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me. 44 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, "We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph." 46 And Nathanael said unto him, "Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth?" Philip saith unto him, "Come and see."

47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to Him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile! 48 Nathanael saith unto him, "Whence knowest thou me?" Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.

49 Nathanael answered and saith unto him, "Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel." 50 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these. 51 And He saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

John Chapter Two

1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: 2 And both Jesus was called, and His disciples, to the marriage. 3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto Him, "They have no wine." 4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.

5 His mother saith unto the servants, "Whatsoever He saith unto you, do it." 6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. 7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. 8 And He saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.

9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, 10 And saith unto him, "Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now." 11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth His glory; and His disciples believed on Him.

12 After this He went down to Capernaum, He, and His mother, and His brethren, and His disciples: and they continued there not many days. 13 And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem, 14 And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: 15 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, He drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables; 16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not My Father's house an house of merchandise. 17 And His disciples remembered that it was written, THE ZEAL OF THINE HOUSE HATH EATEN ME UP (Psalm 69:9).

18 Then answered the Jews and said unto Him, "What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?" 19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 20 Then said the Jews, "Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?" 21 But He spake of the temple of His body. 22 When therefore He was risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.

23 Now when He was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in His name, when they saw the miracles which He did. 24 But Jesus did not commit Himself unto them, because He knew all men, 25 And needed not that any should testify of man: for He knew what was in man.

John Chapter Three

1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: 2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto Him, "Rabbi, we know that Thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that Thou doest, except God be with him."

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

4 Nicodemus saith unto Him, "How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?"

5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. 8 The wind bloweth where it liketh, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

9 Nicodemus answered and said unto Him, "How can these things be?"

10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things? 11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. 12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: 15 That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him (Jesus) should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

19 And this is the condemnation, that Light (Jesus) is come into the world, and men loved darkness (Sin, satan) rather than Light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the Light, neither cometh to the Light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the Light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

22 After these things came Jesus and His disciples into the land of Judaea; and there He tarried with them, and baptized.

23 And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized. 24 For John was not yet cast into prison. 25 Then there arose a question between some of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying. 26 And they came unto John, and said unto him, "Rabbi, He (Jesus) that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to Him."

27 John answered and said, "A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. 28 Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, 'I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.' 29 He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.

30 He must increase, but I must decrease. 31 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: He that cometh from heaven is above all. 32 And what He hath seen and heard, that He testifieth; and no man receiveth His testimony. 33 he that hath received His testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.

34 For He whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto Him. 35 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into His hand. 36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him."

So, yes, let us thank God for coming to earth in the form of a man called Yeshua, fulfilling all of the prophecies of the first coming of the Messiah, shedding His perfect Blood for us and giving us the way to be forgiven and to become His once again. For that is the greatest thing any of us has to be thankful for. And only God could do it and only God can give it.

Thank You Lord.

Amen.

Let us thank God for the heathen

Really, I'm not kidding. As we approach this Thanksgiving day of 2001, let us take a moment to include the heathen in our thanks to the Almighty. Not all heathens of course, kind of hard to thank God for the islamic hordes that have attacked the USA, both here at home and abroad, but there are other heathens we can and should thank Yeshua for.

Turn with me to the book of Revelation:

And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: Revelation 3:14-17

Why oh why do you ask, do we thank God for the heathens of the church of Laodicea? well, first we need to take a closer look at just what the church of Laodicea is. The church of Laodicea are those that say they are Christian churches, but really aren't. They are the churches that do not accept the word of the Lord as truth when He says: "Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." They instead try to work their way into heaven, they do what they call good works and it is those works that they do, trying to bypass the Christ, to get into heaven, that we are thanking the Lord God for.

Tis is the time of the year when the Laodiceans will collect and hand out food, fuel and clothing, they will do this in an effort to satisfy the teachings of their pastors. They will, while on the one hand, ignore the horrors and slaughter of abortion, cry publicly about how children are starving and freezing and how they must do more. So they do more, they collect and hand out more food, they collect and hand out more clothing and fuel oil and at times have even been known to part with cold hard cash. And for that my brothers and sisters of the Church of Philadelphia, we should thank the living God, Messiah Yeshua.

So, as we approach this, the feast of Tabernacle, let us thank the Master for giving us the church of Laodicea. For in their efforts to work their way into heaven, they feed and clothe many, and in most instances, God gets the glory, for as they try to work their way into heaven, they do these good works in God's Holy name. Praise God and thank You Lord for those poor damned fools who feed Your sheep with the sweat of their brow to avoid coming and surrendering to You and Your word.

But Lord, I would ask You most to open the eyes of these fools, to let them know that you and You only are the way. That it is only through Your Blood that one achieves the reward of forgiveness and life eternal with You, the Father and the Holy Ghost. Help them to understand that we, those who are Born Again do works to thank You, not to bribe You. And that their bribes are but dung to a Lord who uses gold as we use dirt to pave the streets..

Amen.

Blessed art thou among women

"Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb." These where the words spoken to Mary, the mother of the Lord Jesus, when Mary came to visit her Aunt Elisabeth, and the baby, John the Baptist, in her womb leapt for joy.

While those within the cult of Roman Catholicism, esteem Mary to the point of making her almost equal with the Lord Jesus. And in some cases equal with the Lord, we evangelical Christians, members of the Lord's church of Philadelphia, have a tendency to perhaps ignore her. We ignore her not out of a sense of dislike or disrespect, but out of the fear of idiolatry. We, fear that we, like Roman Catholics, may find it to easy to stop looking at her as a woman and start to revere her as a god. This is not a silly fear, for look at the Roman Catholic church, the Greek and Russian Orthodox churches and a few other, like the Episcopalian and Methodist churches, they not only put Mary on a pedestal, they pray to her. That my brothers and sisters is idolatry. And it is good that we fear falling into that same trap. But, Mary, the mother of Jesus, is special and we should, while not idolizing her, remember that she was a very special young lady.

And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.

And the angel came in unto her, and said, "Hail, thou that art highly favored, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women."

And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, "Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. 3And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call His name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto Him the throne of His father David: And He shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of His kingdom there shall be no end."

Then said Mary unto the angel, "How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?"

And the angel answered and said unto her, "The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that Holy Thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God." Luke 1:26-35

Mary was picked by God the Father to carry and let grow in her womb, His Son, our Lord and Saviour Christ Jesus. She was not impregnated by a man, but instead by God the Holy Ghost. It was she who nursed the Lord, it was she who changed His diapers, it was she whom God entrusted with the upbringing of His Son. Does that not make her special? Not so special that we should worship her for like us she is only a creation, but is she not at least worth the respect we show for politicians, Christian leaders, and televison personalities? I would have to say yes, for it is Mary whom Jesus responded to and did His first miracle and it was Mary in whom He entrusted to the care of His best friend on earth, the Apostle John.

And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: And both Jesus was called, and His disciples, to the marriage. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto Him, They have no wine. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.

His mother saith unto the servants, "Whatsoever He saith unto you, do it."

And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And He saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.

When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, and saith unto him, "Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now."

This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth His glory; and His disciples believed on Him. John 2: 1-11

And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS. This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin. Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, "Write not, The King of the Jews; but that He said, I am King of the Jews."

Pilate answered, "What I have written I have written."

Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took His garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also His coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout. They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, THEY PARTED MY RAIMENT AMONG THEM, AND FOR MY VESTURE THEY DID CAST LOTS. These things therefore the soldiers did.

Now there stood by the cross of Jesus His mother, and His mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus therefore saw His mother, and the disciple standing by, whom He loved, He saith unto His mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith He to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.

After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to His mouth. When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said, It is finished: and He bowed His head, and gave up the ghost. John 19:19-30

Worship Mary? NO! Pray to Mary? NO! But remember that she was chosen by God Himself to bear His Son, Our Lord? Yes. For which of you out there would not want to have your daughter chosen by God fro so great and honor.

The Lord God Yeshua be with you all.

Amen.



Weekend of November 17th & 18th, 2001

Let's take a minute to thank GOD

Just think, in less than a week it will be Thanksgiving. Praise God. Wouldn't it be nice, if for once, you started thinking of what you will say and what you shall thank God for on Thanksgiving, now instead of the moment that you are giving the blessing before eating that turkey on Thanksgiving?

What do you have to thank God for? Well, if you are an Afghan, you have God to thank for getting the taliban out of your country. If you live in New York, you could thank God for letting you be one of those who did not die in any one of the three airline terrorist actions.

If you are a member of the Military, you can and should thank God that clinton is gone, gore didn't get elected and the president is George Bush. If you are one of those who works at the pentagon, you could thank the Lord that it was not your side of the building that got hit.

And if you were born after 1973, you can thank God Almighty that your mom choose to let you live, for since then, between 25 and 33 percent of all conceptions in these United States ended with the baby being sacrificed on the alter of satan by his high priest the abortionist.

For those of you who are married to a Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian, you have a lot to thank God for, for can you imagine what life must be like being married to one who hates Jesus and has by selection or default chosen to serve, worship and spend eternity with satan?

As for me, I have much to thank the Lord for, for He has given me more than a wife, He has given me a true helpmate. I have taken this next from the ACP Bible page:

"This is the ACP-KJV Bible index page. to receive your free copy in either Word perfect 6 or above or Word 6 or above, please email us at this location: For either Word or Word Perfect Once a week, I will email to you, as a Word or Word Perfect attachment, the chapters done the previous week or all those before you asked. If for some reason a week goes by that you do not receive your email with the attached Scripture, please either email me or call me immediately.

Once you have the Bible formatted for your word processor, I suggest you print out a page, put it in a loose leaf notebook, put a blank page in opposite it for notes and then print out the next page, putting a blank page across from it for notes ans so on and so forth till you have the complete bible.

Now, I need to take a moment and thank my wife Cecily from the bottom of my heart, for without her willingness to work full time as a teacher, I would not be able to devote the time necessary to do this.

I thank God daily for the wife whom He has given me, for without her, I would have never been able to complete my studies nor planted this internet church.

God Almighty tells us in Genesis Chapter One:

18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. 19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. 20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. 21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and He (God) took one of his (Adams) ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made He a woman, and brought her unto the man.

23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. Genesis 1:18-24 ACP-KJV

And this woman, Cecily, whom the Lord has given me is a helpmate indeed. Not a servant, not a slave, not simply a wife, but a helpmate.

Thank You Lord,
Bob"

You will find the Bible here: This link will take you to the index for the Bible.

Thank You Yeshua, thank You.

Amen.



Friday November 16th, 2001

Please pray

Have you ever studied the Bible? I'm not talking about just reading it, I am talking about really studying it. Well if you haven't, this may be the time fro you to do it. Have you ever thought about starting either a Bible study or house church? What held you back? Was it that you were not sure where to start or how to prepare sermons for your house church? Well the answers to both of those lie within the 66 books of the Bible. But, you're not likely to find those answers by just reading, but I assure you, you will find them by studying ever word.

Now, let me ask you one more question. Can you think of a better way to study the Bible than by going over ever word within it, from the "In" in verse one chapter one of Genesis to the "Amen" in verse 22 of chapter 21 of the book of Revelation?

Here is your opportunity to do just that. I am going through the Bible, starting with Genesis and by the time we are done, all the way through the Book of Revelation. God willing. I will be using the King James Version and this is what I am doing.

Every word attributed directly to God the Father will be in bold purple, like this: 18. And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; Genesis 2:18

Each verse number will be in smaller type font, such as the 18 in the verse above.

The words of God the Son, Jesus are used, they will be in bold red print, like this: 15 And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15

The words of satan, will be in a sickly non bold green like this: 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. Luke 4:3&4

When a pronoun such as he or him or his is used and it refers to God the Son, God the Father or God the Holy Ghost, the h will be capitalized. As in the verse from the book of Mark above, " And He said " in the original KJV it is written as " And he said ".

At times, it is hard to keep up with the pronouns, trying to understand just who the he is can be difficult, so, occasionally there will be a name in italics within parenthesis to identify the he. Like this: 4. Being made so much better than the angels, as He (Jesus) hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

5. For unto which of the angels said He (God) at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten Thee? And again, I will be to Him a Father, and He shall be to Me a Son?

6. And again, when He (God) bringeth in the first begotten into the world, He saith, And let all the angels of God worship Him.

7. And of the angels He saith, Who maketh His angels spirits, and His ministers a flame of fire. Hebrews 1:5-7

As I finish each chapter, it will be placed on the net. It will also be available to any and all who want it as an email attachment in either Word Perfect 6 or above and Word 6 and above. The Bible is designed to downloaded giving any and all a free bible. The way I'm setting mine up is by printing a page, placing it in a loose leaf notebook and putting a blank page opposite it for notes.

Now, where do you come in? Well, first and foremost I would ask for your prayers. And second, I would like you to compare it to the original and see if you can find any mistakes, regardless of the size, a misspelled word, a word attributed to the wrong person, an 'h' that went uncapitalized, anything. Anything you see that you even suspect might be wrong, I want to hear about. How do you do that? Well, you and your study group if you have one, go through what I have done and what is in the 1611 King James Version and compare and study. Looking for anything I may have done wrong or made the least little mistake at. Keeping this in mind, I really mean to have no mistakes, for it is written, 18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. Revelation 21:18&19. By your doing that, you will be of indispensable help to me and will at the same time be, not just reading the Bible, but studying it as well. Now as in the verses above, you will at times find that even in the red letter editions of the KJV there will be times when they do not have words in red and I will. Those you must read especially carefully.

You will find the Bible here: This link will take you to the index for the Bible.

One last thing, before proof reading, always go down on your knees and ask the Lords help. For it is His book we are doing and it will, God willing, be here for those who are left behind. Left behind at a time when it will become impossible to buy a KJV.

The Lord Yeshua be with you all, may He keep you safe and may you give Him thanks for His hearing our prayers regarding a woman, her husband and their baby. For thanks be to God, the baby is a healthy happy little 8 pound 21 inch boy. Mom and baby are fine.

Amen.



Thursday November 15th, 2001

Ladies, what are ye to do?

Men, if you allow your daughter(s) to marry a heathen, you need to read this. Ladies, if you are Saved and are married to an unsaved man, you really need to read this. For you see, since you have done what God has told you not to do, He doesn't condemn you, but instead tells you what you must do to not only survive in that union, but how to do it as well.

In his second letter to the Corinthians, Paul warns, well actually instructs that those who are Saved, should not link themselves to those who are unsaved.

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 2 Corinthians 6:14

Now while I read a lot more into that then just marriage, just about every preacher Who has ever read the Word of God agrees that it is a serious order not to marry a non Christian. And it is the aspect of marriage that we are going to look at today.

Why do you want to not be married to a non Christian? Well, let us look at a few things that God has said in His book that woman must do within their marriage relationship.

But let us start with What God Almighty Himself said when Eve first sinned.

Unto the woman (Eve) God said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. Genesis 3:16
So before you go trying to ignore what peter and Paul said about a wife's role, you had best let the words of God as He spoke to Eve sink in. and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

God has not said, Your husband will rule over you and your desire will be to serve him when he is a Born Again Christian, God has said that who ever you marry, He God will put in you the desire to serve that man.

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. Ephesians 5:22
Wives, obey your husbands as you would obey the Lord. Can you imagine anything that the Lord would tell you to do that you would say no to? Well, if you can not think of a way to say no to God, then you had best rid yourself of the idea of being disrespectful to your husband, Saved or unsaved.

So, what are you to do? What are you to do with your unsaved husband? Well God has not forgotten you simply because you are yoked to a heathen, He has given you explicit directions on how to deal with that unsaved man.

¶ Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.

Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden woman of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement. 1 peter 3:1-6

Don't yell, don't scream, don't preach to him and berate him, but instead be a good Christian wife. Obey him, and show him by your behavior and demeanor what it is like to be Saved. And pray for him. Every night, while he is a sleep, pray for him. Every night before going to sleep, spend a bit of time reading your bible, maybe he will ask you questions, or perhaps he may even ask you to read to him. But, don't preach, don't call him a heathen, don't fight with him, don't argue with him. Obey him and show him by your behavior that you are his and God's. It is not going to be easy. But it is what God requires of you. Tell me, do you understand the horrors of damnation? Has your unsaved husband ever done anything so bad that he deserves and eternity of damnation?

And if he ask you or commands you to prostitute yourself out or rob a bank, what do you do then? I'm going to answer that question with a question of my own. When the angel Gabriel came to Mary and told her that she was going to get pregnant before she was married, did she say "NO way, I'm a virgin, I engaged to a wonderful man and I'm going to be a virgin on the night of my marriage."? When God told His prophet to marry a whore, did the prophet obey or worry about appearances?

Men, do you see the importance of making sure your daughters marry a Born Again Christian? Ladies do you see and understand what you must do if you are unequally yoked?

I pray God the answer is yes, I also ask him to help you with this chore. In Jesus name we pray.

Amen.



Never turn your back on the enemy.

Wednesday November 14th, 2001

Today we are going to see why you never ever turn your back on satan, his minions, his ilk or one who serves him knowingly or unknowingly. Read with me from Paul's letter to the Ephesians.

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

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; Ephesians 6:10-18

Gird your loins with truth, put on the breastplate of righteousness, clothe your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace, hold before you the shield of faith, and put upon your head the helmet of salvation. Do you see anything covering your back? Stand toe to toe with evil, do not back down, do not turn and flee, but, be armed properly. You need to be armed with the sword of the Spirit. When facing the evil one, one of his minions, one of his slaves, one who serves him, don't turn and flee, but be armed, be prepared to use the word of God to not only defend yourself, but to destroy that evil influence as well.

While the servants of the evil one come in the form of a man, the only thing that we have to fight them with is the sword of the Spirt, the word of God. And how are you to arm yourself if you do not study the word of God? Look, if I were to give you an M-16, you would want to take it outside and fire it, you would want to practice so that when the time came where you needed to use it, you would not only know how, but would be very proficient with it. Yet that M-16 is nothing compared to the word of God. You can not injure satan with an M-16. But you can drive him off and prepare him for his ultimate destruction with the word of God.

Now, let us look at satan and those who are his' ultimate end:

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

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

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

And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, and shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. Revelation 20: 1-10

So, as you see, satan's ultimate end is not simply being thrown into hell, that's only for a thousand years, but the ultimate end for him, his minions, his ilk, for those who serve him both knowingly and unknowingly is eternity in the lake of fire.

Those who serve satan, will spend eternity with him in absolute agony, suffering and pain, all eternity in the lake of fire. Your use of the word of God, the Holy Gospels when fighting satan's servants, may just rescue one of them from that end. For some who hear the word will be saved. But, if you turn and run, they won't hear the word. If you take out that M-16 and riddle the sucker with .223's you're just sending them to hell a bit early, with no chance to repent.

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

There aint no purgatory. Once a man, woman or child is dead, they are judged and if they are not Born Again, they are damned. Period. No second chances, no million of years in purgatory, you die, you are judged, you are not found in the Lamb's book of life, you spend eternity with satan.

But, is it not scary to face evil at times, does it not seem as if the only thing to do is turn tail and run at times?

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

But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear Him, which after He hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear God. Luke 12:5

Does this mean that saved Wives should badger their husbands? No, and we will cover that another day, probably tomorrow. What it does mean is that you are never to turn your back on evil. That you are never to vote for the lesser of the two evils for you are still turning your back on what is right and embracing what is evil. You are not to rationalize with evil, but are to use that which they fear most, the word of God, the Holy Scriptures.

May our Lord Jesus bless you all today, may he keep you and yours safe, may He give you strength, may He hear your prayers and bless your every move.

Amen.



Weekend of November 10th&11th, 2001

I need your input


One of the most difficult tasks that any Born Again preacher has to face, is how to get new brothers and sisters in the Lord to read the word of God. I have given this much thought and prayer and think I might have an idea. But, I want to know what you think as well. Click here to mail. What I'm thinking of doing is a bible, much like the one I use for the daily thoughts. Not exactly a New King James, nor quite a King James, but somewhat in between.

The words spoken that are attributed directly to God the Father, Yahweh, will be in purple, those direct quotes of God the Son, Yeshua, in red and those spoken by the evil one, satan, in a sickly green.

Let me give you an example if I may:

First, let us look at the verses as they appear in the KJV:

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. Luke 4:3&4 KJV

And how I will do it.

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. Luke 4:3&4

Now, as you look at the two above, you'll notice a couple of things, one the use of the colors, and two, when a "him" is referring to God the Father, God the Son or God the Holy Ghost, the "h" is capitalized, therefore making it easier to understand. In some instances, when trying to keep up with the "him," or "he," the name of the person referenced will be in parentheses. As an example, Hebrews chapter one, verses four thru seven:

4 ¶ Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?
6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.
7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. KJV

And our way,

4. ¶ Being made so much better than the angels, as He (Jesus) hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
5. For unto which of the angels said He (God) at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten Thee? And again, I will be to Him a Father, and He shall be to Me a Son?
6. And again, when He (God) bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, He saith, And let all the angels of God worship Him.
7. And of the angels He saith, Who maketh His angels spirits, and His ministers a flame of fire. Hebrews 4-7

When a New testament writing is a direct quote from Old Testament, the words themselves will all be caps. Such as below, first the KJV and then as I will be doing it:

And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 2 Corinthians 6:16 KJV

And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I WILL DWELL IN THEM, AND WALK IN THEM; AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE. 2 Corinthians 6:16

I am open for comment, what I do not want to do is a study Bible at this time, but other than that, I am looking for your input. I would really like to hear from those who are new Christians and those who are currently struggling with their first or second reading of the Bible. Also those who have started and got discouraged, putting the Bible down and not going back to it. Click here to email.



This is what chapter one of Genesis will be:



Genesis Chapter One

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.

14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth. 18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. 19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. 21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. 23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. 29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. 30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

31 And God saw every thing that He had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Genesis 1:1-31

This is a rather large undertaking for me, and I ask two things of you. First, keep this effort in your prayers. And second, please let me have your input.Click to mail.

May this undertaking be of God, may it please Him and may He be with me as I do it and you as you comment on it and edit it. The Lord God of Creation be blessed and His word be with us, for as Yeshua has instructed us. Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth from the mouth of God.

Amen.

Note, we need prayer warriors to join in a commitment to pray daily for the President and his staff. I will be posting the link to join this prayer group later, but before the end of the weekend.
Bob

Here it is, please do not pass this on to any outside of the Born Again Christian community. For has not God Himself told us through His apostle Paul:
Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils. 1 Corinthians 10:21 God hears those at His table, not those who pray to satan regardless of how the call satan, for as the Lord has told us:
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. John 3:3


Yeshua, Yeshua, saloch hem, kiy mah casu lo yaden.
amen.

A patriot died.

Yesterday, I was informed that one of the foremost advocates of patriotism and a return to our Republican Constitutional government as outlined by the founders, was shot and killed by sheriffs deputies in Arizona. Bill Cooper was a man who proved his patriotism over and over again, he served with SAC, while in the Air Force and later joining the Navy served aboard nuclear submarines. Bill, unlike president clinton, who hated him and referred to him by many a derogatory name, held an honorable discharge and achieved the rank of E-6 in just under eight years.

Bill's death yesterday, reminded me of another patriot killing by sheriffs deputies, back in 1995. There was a chaplain in Ohio State Militia who was stopped by sheriffs deputies and gunned down in the early hours of the morning. Unlike Bill, the Ohio Chaplain was unarmed, but had professed Christ. For the micro second that Bill died, And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: Hebrews 9:27

I have done a diligent search on Bill's web site, and I would ask you to do the same, do it before it is removed, http://williamcooper.com . While Bill's site tells us tons about his political beliefs, I could find nothing about his relationship with, the Christ, Messiah Yeshua. 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. Romans 10:9

I guess I may have been one of the few preachers Bill might have listened to, yet, while I was aware of his site, his beliefs and his radio show, I never reached out to him, I never sent him and email or called him. We even had mutual friends whom I could have used as a go between, yet, I did nothing, God forgive me. ¶ For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon Him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?

And how shall they preach, except they be sent? As it is written, HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THEM THAT PREACH THE GOSPEL OF PEACE, AND BRING GLAD TIDINGS OF GOOD THINGS! Romans 10: 12-15

My brothers, i would ask you to do three things, first visit Bill's web site, second pray for his family, pray Yeshua be with and help through this time, Annie, and the girls. Ask the Lord to let this satisfy the government and have them leave Annie and the girls alone.

And third, and probably most important, search your minds, is their a Bill Cooper in your life? Will you one day get an email telling you that a man whom you knew, a man whom you could have preached the gospel of Christ to but hadn't, was dead.

Yeshua, please forgive me, for if Bill was lost, it was I, your servant who let him down. For I Lord, keep the glory and salvation through Your Blood to myself, I never thought to preach it to Bill, please Lord protect his wife and kids. Forgive me.

Amen.

Paul's three years in the desert

This morning we will be looking in the Book of Acts and Paul's letter to the Galatians.

First let us look at how Paul, a chief sinner, a man determined to eliminate Christianity from the face of the earth, became the world's greatest disciple. How the Apostle Paul became a Born Again Christian.

¶ And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem.

And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, "Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?"

And he said, "Who art thou, Lord?"

And the Lord said, "I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks."

And Saul trembling and astonished said, "Lord, what wilt Thou have me to do?"

And the Lord said unto him, "Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do."

And the men which journeyed with Saul stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man. And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus. And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink.

And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, "Ananias". And he said, "Behold, I am here, Lord."

And the Lord said unto him, "Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth, And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight."

Then Ananias answered, "Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem: And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on Thy name."

But the Lord said unto him, "Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto Me, to bear My name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for My name's sake."

And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on Saul said, "Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost".

And immediately there fell from Saul's eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized. And when he had received meat, he was strengthened. Then was Saul certain days with the disciples which were at Damascus. And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that He is the Son of God.

But all that heard him were amazed, and said; "Is not this he that destroyed them which called on this name in Jerusalem, and came hither for that intent, that he might bring them bound unto the chief priests?" But Saul increased the more in strength, and confounded the Jews which dwelt at Damascus, proving that Jesus is very Christ. Acts 9:1-22

But where did Paul get this Knowledge? Did he immediately go out and start preaching? It would appear so, until you read his letter to the Galatians. For then you see that Paul went to seminary so to speak, it would appear that Paul attended a one on one seminary with him as the student and the Lord as the teacher.

¶ For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

But I assure you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it: And profited in the Jews' religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.

But when it pleased God, He who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by His grace, to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:

Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus. Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days. Galatians 1:10-18

Do you see where Paul is saying that the gospel he preached, he didn't learn from men, he didn't go to the Apostles in Jerusalem and have them teach him. But instead, he went into Arabia, which would be the desert for three years, and if you look back to the beginning of the letter, you'll see that he was taught by revelation of God " but by the revelation of Jesus Christ".

Saul, the agent of the chief priest in eliminating the Christian church, was Saved by the Blood of Jesus, Saul went on to become the Apostle Paul. If Jesus could use the chief agent of the chief priest can He not do the same with those who serve and preach islam?

Was Saul doing any different than bin laden is today? As Saul could go into the synagogues and preach, so could bin laden go into the mosque and preach the truth of Christ. As Paul was protected by the Lord so could bin laden be protected as well. For like Saul, bin laden appears to be no more than a lackey of todays high priest of islam. And like Saul, there does not appear to be any brave enough or able to go preach the good news of Christ to bin laden, but as that did not stop the Lord with Saul, if it pleases Him to do so, it will not prevent the Lord from reaching out to bin laden either.

Pray to the Lord that He will reach out to a muslim that can reach out to the muslim community. Pray that the Lord will do to a muslim of high rank what He did to Saul. For the only way we will have peace with those who worship allah is if they learn the truth about allah and turn to the only true God, the God of Creation, the Lord Jesus, the Christ.

And as for us, here in the USA. Think about this.

Unlike individuals who are judged after they die, nations must be judged here on earth. Over the past six thousand years we have seen God time and time again use the heathen and the natural forces of the earth to discipline His children and society as a whole. We as individual Born Again Christians are safe. Yes we will suffer from what ever punishment the Lord chooses to use on the USA along with the heathens, but we, because of the Blood of the Lord, are eternally safe. As a nation though, I firmly believe that we aint seen nothing yet. Four things we must do immediately to stop, what I believe is just the beginning of God's getting of our attention. For I do not think that we are seeing His punishment or his judgement yet, I honestly believe that all we are seeing is His trying to get our attention.

First, turn from worshiping everything but JESUS to worshiping Jesus first and foremost.

Second, stop abortion.

Third, get back to the roles of man and woman as outlined in His Holy Word.

Fourth, become a Christian nation lead by the teachings of the Word of God, passing laws against obscenity, prostitution, gambling, homosexuality, political correctness, etc.

Let us, the Born Again Christian community start with prayer and preaching.

The Lord be with you all, may He bless and protect you and yours.

Amen.



The weekend of November 3rd&4th, 2001

Israel...

At times, the things I hear coming out of Washington scare me to the very marrow of my bones. We, according to many, are a Christian nation. As such, we must abide by those things commanded of God's people in God's holy word, the Bible.

I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD. Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem. Jerusalem is built as a city that is compact together: Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD. For there sit the thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.

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

In Psalm 122, we see the command form God Almighty that His people, for it is only His people that look to His word for truth and commands, must pray for the peace of Jerusalem. But what is that peace? When we pray for peace for Jerusalem, what are we praying for? We are praying for them to accept the Prince of Peace, the Messiah, Yeshua.

Now the LORD had said unto Abram, "Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed." Genesis 12:1-3

God, tells us in His book, the Bible, to pray for Jerusalem and to bless His people Israel. When we as a nation, say that we support the creation of a Palestine state within the borders of what God has given to the sons of Israel, the twelve tribes, we tread on very thin ice, thin ice over very deep and dark and murky waters. Ice that God can melt in a heart beat. Let me tell you this, God does not care what President Bush says about Israel, He doesn't take into consideration what the UN wants, or what Secretary Powell claims is best for the Middle East. God has given Jerusalem and all of Israel to His Son Yeshua and until Yeshua returns, He has put it in the hands of the Jews to hold for Him.

How hard is it for us to take Israel's side? Well, while I'm not going to print it all out here for you, let me suggest you read the first couple of chapters of First Chronicles. Notice all of those names. Notice that all of the names are relatives of Isaac and his twelve sons. All those named as the descendants of Abraham's children by his concubines and Sarah's handmaid are now Arab muslims. While God has wreaked havoc upon the children of Israel, the heathen islamic hordes have just grown and grown and grown. Satan worshiper after satan worshiper has tried over the years to eliminate the children of Israel. Yet, God has saved a remnant for Himself, and if our president thinks he can be any more successful than anyone of the others in turning his back on Israel, he is wrong. And that my brothers is what we must pray for this weekend. We must pray that God will open George Bush's eyes to the understanding that we, as a nation, are not to join the arab muslim hordes in attacking or supporting those who attack Israel. For we as a nation are fighting the very same heathen that Israel is and has been fighting.

Actually, if the president and we really want peace in Israel, what we need to pray for is that the Gospel of Jesus is preached over there and that they come to know the Lord as their own personal Saviour. For as long as the Jews and the Arabs continue to ignore the Lord and instead worship mammon in one form or another, they will continue to kill one another and end up spending eternity together with their god satan. For that's what satan does, he gets his people fighting and killing one another to insure hatred and a soul harvest for himself. So, when we drop food for those in Afghanistan, we should include a Christian Bible in thier language.

Only you as a Born Again, washed in the Blood of the Lamb, Christian can change that. Only you pray to and are heard by Yeshua. It is only your prayers that He hears and answers. If you pray, God will be faithful to hear and grant your prayers. All you need is faith as the grain of mustard seed and to pray. Don't expect your prayers to stop the warring going on, just expect them to result in more coming to know Yeshua as God and for the Lord to come sooner rather than later to rescue us from this world.

For the Peace of Jerusalem comes when the Prince of Peace comes.

For Yeshua has said: Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Matthew 5:17&18

Yes, Jesus is the Christ, and nothing will end till every word of prophecy is fulfilled, not until every thing prophesied in the Word of God is fulfilled. But, you and your prayers can and will make a difference in the lives of those who without Christ will rot in the lake of fire throughout all eternity for ignoring the Christ. For the default is not heaven, but hell.

How many Jews will rot in hell for all time because you couldn't take the time to pray? How many of the followers of allah will rot in that same hell for all time because you could not be bothered to ask the Lord God Creator of all things, Jesus for their salvation? How many of the liberal left wing nuts on tv and in the congress will continue to support allah, abortion, pornography and blocking Jesus from the schools because you couldn't be bothered to ask the Lord for their salvation? How many of your own family will spend all eternity in the lake of fire because you refuse to go down on your knees and beseech the Lord Jesus for their salvation.

How many of you will watch as the Lord greets you with "welcome good and faithful servant", while saying to your neighbor, "I never knew you, depart from me you worker of iniquity."?

Yeshua, help us to get off our feet, off our seats and onto our knees. Help us to understand that You answer prayer, but only if someone prays first. Help us to understand that we are Yours and as Yours, we can come to You knowing that You will hear us and grant us our prayer. Help us also to understand the horrors that await those we refuse to pray for. And Lord help our president to understand that he can not dictate policy for Jerusalem, only You can. Help him to understand that to secure Your help in fighting the muslim hordes who have attacked our nation, we must turn to You and Your word, not only in the ending of abortion, the ending of our sinful ways, the ending of our worship of mammon, but in our dealings with Israel and Jerusalem as well.

To Yahweh I pray in the name of Yeshua. Lord hear our prayer and come soon Lord Jesus, come soon.

Amen.

It just doesn't get any easier than this.

Ever wonder how to explain why we as Born Again believers do not fear death? Notice how when you tell a secular world friend or a church of Laodicea Christian how you not only do not fear death, you actually look forward to it, how they look at you as if you have lost your mind?

Well, try this analogy.

A sick man turned to his doctor, as he was preparing to leave the examination room and said, "Doctor, I am afraid to die. Tell me what lies on the other side." Very quietly the doctor said, "I don't know."

"You don't know? You, a Christian man, do not know what is on the other side?"

The doctor was holding the handle of the door; on the other side of which came a sound of scratching and whining, and as he opened the door a dog sprang into the room and leaped on him with an eager show of gladness.

Turning to the patient, the doctor said, "Did you notice my dog? He's never been in this room before. He didn't know what was inside. He knew nothing except that his master was here, and when the door opened he sprang in without fear. I know little of what is on the other side of death, but I do know one thing: I know my Master, the Lord Jesus, is there, and that is enough. And when the door opens, I will pass through it with gladness, and no fear."

Jesus tells us something we might wish to keep in mind:

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in Me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. John 14:1,2,&3

At this time, as we are surrounded by traitorous so called allies, like the Chinese and the so called moderate muslims countries. As we have our perception of our nation and her military twisted by the traitors within abc, nbc, cbs, cnn and fox news, isn't it comforting to know that the Lord is preparing a mansion for us who are Saved, Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians.

Thank You Jesus, and Lord please give us the strength to pass on our knowledge of You and Your plan of salvation to those we love who are unsaved.

To Yahweh I pray in the name of Yeshua.

Amen.

Can we do any less?


¶ And Stephen, being full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.

Then there arose certain of the synagogue, which is called the synagogue of the Libertines, and Cyrenians, and Alexandrians, and of them of Cilicia and of Asia, disputing with Stephen. And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake.

Then they suborned men, which said, "We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses, and against God." And they stirred up the people, and the elders, and the scribes, and came upon Stephen, and caught him, and brought him before the council. And set up false witnesses, which said, "This man ceaseth not to speak blasphemous words against this holy place, and the law: For we have heard him say, that this Jesus of Nazareth shall destroy this place, and shall change the customs which Moses delivered us."

And all that sat in the council, looking steadfastly upon Stephen, saw his face as it had been the face of an angel. Then said the high priest, "Are these things so?"

And Stephen said, "Men, brethren, and fathers, hearken; The God of glory appeared unto our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Charran. And said unto him, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into the land which I shall shew thee.

Then came Abram out of the land of the Chaldaeans, and dwelt in Charran: and from thence, when his father was dead, he removed him into this land, wherein ye now dwell. And God gave Abram no inheritance in it, no, not so much as to set his foot on: yet God promised that He would give it to him for a possession, and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child.

And God spake on this wise, That Abrams seed should sojourn in a strange land; and that they should bring them into bondage, and entreat them evil four hundred years. And the nation to whom they shall be in bondage will I judge, said God: and after that shall they come forth, and serve me in this place. And God gave Abram the covenant of circumcision: and so Abraham begat Isaac, and circumcised him the eighth day; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat the twelve patriarchs.

And the patriarchs, moved with envy, sold Joseph into Egypt: but God was with him. And delivered him out of all his afflictions, and gave him favor and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and Pharaoh made Joseph governor over Egypt and all his house.

Now there came a dearth over all the land of Egypt and Chanaan, and great affliction: and our fathers found no sustenance. But when Jacob heard that there was corn in Egypt, he sent out our fathers first. And at the second time Joseph was made known to his brethren; and Joseph's kindred was made known unto Pharaoh. Then sent Joseph, and called his father Jacob to him, and all his kindred, threescore and fifteen souls. So Jacob went down into Egypt, and died, he, and our fathers, and were carried over into Sychem, and laid in the sepulchre that Abraham bought for a sum of money of the sons of Emmor the father of Sychem.

¶ But when the time of the promise drew nigh, which God had sworn to Abraham, the people grew and multiplied in Egypt, till another king arose, which knew not Joseph. The same dealt subtilly with our kindred, and evil entreated our fathers, so that they cast out their young children, to the end they might not live. In which time Moses was born, and was exceeding fair, and nourished up in his father's house three months: And when he was cast out, Pharaoh's daughter took him up, and nourished him for her own son.

And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds. And when he was full forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren the children of Israel. And seeing one of them suffer wrong, he defended him, and avenged him that was oppressed, and smote the Egyptian: For he supposed his brethren would have understood how that God, by his hand would deliver them: but they understood not. And the next day Moses showed himself unto them as they strove, and would have set them at one again, saying, "Sirs, ye are brethren; why do ye wrong one to another?" But he that did his neighbor wrong thrust Moses away, saying, "Who made thee a ruler and a judge over us? Wilt thou kill me, as thou diddest the Egyptian yesterday?"

Then fled Moses at this saying, and was a stranger in the land of Madian, where he begat two sons. And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina an angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush. When Moses saw it, he wondered at the sight: and as he drew near to behold it, the voice of the Lord came unto him. Saying, "I am the God of thy fathers, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob." Then Moses trembled, and durst not behold.

Then said the Lord to him, "Put off thy shoes from thy feet: for the place where thou standest is holy ground. I have seen, I have seen the affliction of My people which is in Egypt, and I have heard their groaning, and am come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send thee into Egypt."

This Moses, whom they refused, saying, "Who made thee a ruler and a judge?" the same did God send to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the Angel which appeared to him in the bush. He brought them out, after that he had shewed wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red sea, and in the wilderness forty years. This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, "A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; Him shall ye hear."

This is He, that was in the church in the wilderness with the Angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us: To whom our fathers would not obey, but thrust Him from them, and in their hearts turned back again into Egypt, Saying unto Aaron, Make us gods to go before us: for as for this Moses, which brought us out of the land of Egypt, we know not what is become of him. And they made a calf in those days, and offered sacrifice unto the idol, and rejoiced in the works of their own hands.

Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, "O YE HOUSE OF ISRAEL, HAVE YE OFFERED TO ME SLAIN BEASTS AND SACRIFICES BY THE SPACE OF FORTY YEARS IN THE WILDERNESS? YEA, YE TOOK UP THE TABERNACLE OF MOLOCH, AND THE STAR OF YOUR GOD REMPHAN, FIGURES WHICH YE MADE TO WORSHIP THEM: AND I WILL CARRY YOU AWAY BEYOND BABYLON."

Our fathers had the tabernacle of witness in the wilderness, as God had appointed, speaking unto Moses, that he should make it according to the fashion that he had seen. Which also our fathers that came after brought in with Joshua into the possession of the Gentiles, whom God drove out before the face of our fathers, unto the days of David; Who found favor before God, and desired to find a tabernacle for the God of Jacob.

But Solomon built him an house. How be it the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet, "HEAVEN IS MY THRONE, AND EARTH IS MY FOOTSTOOL: WHAT HOUSE WILL YE BUILD ME? SAITH THE LORD: OR WHAT IS THE PLACE OF MY REST? HATH NOT MY HAND MADE ALL THESE THINGS?"

Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye. Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers:

Who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept it.

When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on Stephen with their teeth. But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, and said, "Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God."

Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord, and cast him out of the city, and stoned him:

and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul. And they stoned Stephen, who calling upon God, and saying, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit." And Stephen kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, "Lord, lay not this sin to their charge". And when he had said this, he fell asleep. Acts 6:8 thru 7:60

At this, a time of national emergency, a time when we and ours are at risk of insane muslim terrorist murderers, can we be any less resolute in our determination to bring the gospel of Christ Jesus to those who are unsaved than Stephen? Don't be afraid, remember what the Lord said:

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

Keep in mind, it is only through our actions and prayers that the Lord Jesus will help and rescue us. For without His help, we, are fighting satan on our own, without the armour of the Lord. And without His help. And without the help of Jesus, we can not and will not win. For never in history has a people won against satan without the Lord God Yeshua.

Pray for our men, pray for our president, pray for revival, but most of all pray that the Lord will continue to bless and protect you and yours.

Pray to Yahweh in the name of Yeshua.

Amen.

Headline


Headline: 2 grams of anthrax found in Daschle's envelope, could have killed 2 million.

Headline: Attorney General Ashcroft warns of major attacks this weekend.

Headline: Attack could be dirty bomb.



It is time to get back to basics!



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



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



That whosoever believeth on Jesus should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that He gave Jesus, His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Jesus should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son Jesus into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. Those that believeth on Jesus are not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God, Jesus. John 3:15-18



Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me. John 14:6



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



By all rights, every person working in the capital should be dead. The amount of anthrax found in the letter found in democrat senator Daschle's office contained enough anthrax to infect and kill two million people. It was only by God's grace that it was found and those infected treated before it, the anthrax, had the opportunity to do it's intended deed.



What about you? What if the next terrorist attack kills you? What if you are killed in the stampede to escape the next attack? Or what if you just die from natural causes? Will you be greeted by the Lord with a smile and a greeting? Or will He condemn you to spending eternity in the lake of fire, after groveling before the Lord and His saints and apologizing for being so stupid?



You salvation, your choice.



Messiah Yeshua be with you all.



Amen.

Why we are not a 501c3.


Have you ever wondered to yourself why we are not a 501C3 government approved and tax exempt church? There are two reasons really, first, we preach Christ! And the second is, we are very political. Both of which will get you, as a church, in deep trouble with our government.

That said, now let me ask you a question. Which is more important to you, the elimination of the terrorist threat of the muslim hordes or the elimination of abortion? Let me ask it another way, let's say the president called you and said, "I'm in a quandary, I can do one thing, but not both, which should I do starting this very instant. Put all of my energies and the full power of my office into eliminating the terrorist or eliminating abortion? I will, as president abide by your decision." Which would you tell him?

If you said, eliminate the terrorist, you are more than likely a liberal left wing church of Laodicea small ‘c' Christian. As, I am starting to think, is our president. For the greatest abomination of our time, partial birth abortion, is still government approved and sanctioned in our country. While the islamic terrorist have now killed around 6,000 men, woman and children in these United States and are responsible for maybe another 6 or 8 out side the country since September 11th, 2001. The real terrorist, the real butchers, the high priest of baal, the US abortionist has since that same September 11th, 2001 slaughtered over 188,750 little trapped in the womb babies. And that is just here in the USA, the worldwide number, with the help of the UN and UNICEF, has got to be well beyond two million dead babies.

Why do I say that the abortionist is the real terrorist? Think about this for a moment.

When the Angel Gabriel came to the priest Zacharias and was telling him that he was soon to be the father of a great one, he described this baby thus:
For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb. Luke 1:15
The baby the angel Gabriel was describing was John the Baptist. Notice the "even from his mother's womb". Does it sound as if Gabriel is describing a glob of tissue or a baby?

Let's read further:

¶ And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.

And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call His name JESUS. Luke 1: 26-31

One more:

¶ And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda; And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.

And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the Fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.

And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord. And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. Luke 1: 39-47

Ready? The leftist tell us it is but a glob of tissue, but God's word, the Holy Bible says: "And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the Fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.".

God's word calls the babe in the womb a babe, not a glob. Now let me ask you just two questions: First, do you think Jesus would really ever condone something He once was, a baby trapped in the womb? And second, which should we eliminate first, abortion or the muslim terrorist?

Please pray for the salvation of President Bush. Pray theat he will get his priorities straight. If he wants to get the terrorist, fine, but let him put and end to abortion first. For neither is either beyond his reach or very difficult to do. He can eliminate abortion by the stroke of the pen, it is called the executive order. And don't give me the argument against the executive order based upon the constitution, for if your constitutional rights are more important than the life of the baby in the womb, then I have to wonder what you're doing here in the first place. And if he wants the heads of the terrorist, that is quite simple too, with winter in Afghanistan, comes real cold, our heat sensing devices will tell us exactly what caves the Taliban and bin laden are in, with the AC 130 aircraft, we have the ability to hit those caves with small tactical nukes that will seal the cave and what ever is in it till the Lord raptures his church and the great earthquake levels the mountains.

The Lord be with you all.

Amen.

Are you a Christian?

Well, are you? Are you a Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Born Again Christian? Have you accepted Jesus as your own personal Lord and Saviour? Do you understand and have you come to acknowledge that Jesus is God. That God the Son, God the Father and God the Holy Spirit are all Jesus. Do you understand that every word written between the "In" in Genesis 1:1 and the "Amen" in Revelation 22:21 are all the exact words that God dictated to various writers?

If you answered yes to all the above, then let us start by looking at two verses of Scripture, for they should be in the minds of every truly Born Again Christian.

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

and

The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law. Deuteronomy 29:29

Every word in the bible has come to us by the dictation of God, but we do not have to understand every word. And when we don't understand something, it is not because God doesn't know what He is talking about, nor is it because God doesn't know how to make Himself understood. It is because some things are reserved for God to know and not us. As you keep some things from your children, so does God keep some things from us. If you have the right to not tell your five year old everything about you, your wife, your household expenses etc, so does God have that same right only more so.

There are no contradictions in the bible and those of you who are Born Again Christians should know and understand that. How often I have heard those who profess to be His do and say things that spit in the Lords face or call Him a liar. Last weekend a local so called Christian church held a party to celebrate the high holiday of satan, halloween, the proceeds from this party went to fund UNICEF, an organization that uses it's funds to further the cause of abortions worldwide.

A man who advertises himself as a Christian, plays Christian music in his office and professes to belief in Christ, told me that the bible was full of inconsistencies and contradictions. Had he read the bible? Had he studied the bible in prayer? I don't think so, but all to often these things happen. It is up to you, the true Born Again Christian to stand up and defend the Lord and His word.

Read carefully what the Lord God Creator of the Universe has said. What Messiah Yeshua dictated to the Apostle Matthew in chapter 10 verse 33 of the book of Matthew: "But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before My Father which is in heaven."

You don't think that by agreeing with infidels when they claim that Jesus wrote a book full of inconsistencies, full of contradictions, full of lies, that you by your agreement with that infidel, are denying Christ?

In Titus 1 verse2 the Apostle Paul clearly tells us that Our God, Jesus the Christ, cannot lie, Paul says: In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

In Hebrews 6:18 we are told once again that for God it is impossible to tell a lie: That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:

When the word of God, His holy book, the Bible tells us that God can not lie, that it is impossible for Him to lie, what are you doing when you agree with infidels that God is contradicting Himself, that God is not telling the truth in His own Book? What are you doing when you agree with infidels that abortion is ok,? Or that one can get into heaven by some means other than being Born Again.

Messiah Yeshua said very clearly and with no exceptions whatsoever in John chapter three verse three: "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."

At a time when at any moment any man woman or child could be the victim of a terrorist, it is time to quite playing second guess with God's word and be ready to meet your maker at any second. Because there aint no purgatory! In the book of Hebrews we see that once a person dies they are judged, they are either found in the Book of Life or they go to hell. No purgatory, no second chances:

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

Likewise, it is every man, woman and child's responsibility to be Born Again, to seek and find salvation. I may give you scripture, as may other preaches, while others deny Christ, and His teachings, telling you that they knew what God really meant to say. But God has made your salvation your responsibility.

For those of us who are truly Born Again washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians, this time on earth is the closes we will ever come to hell. But for those of you who deny Christ, who ignore His warning in John 3:3, this time on earth is the closes you will ever come to heaven!

The Lord be with you all.

Amen.



Weekend, October 27th&28th, 2001, 6314 ATF

Infidels, who are they?

You know, the way you hear the islamic hordes calling Christians infidels, you'd think their guy mohammad had coined the word infidels. But that isn't the case, and like so much of islam it is a lie. As the arabic pagan god allah was around hundreds of years before mohammad, the term infidel was around even longer, with its first recorded use being when the Apostle Paul used it in the sixties. Not the nineteen sixties, but the sixties AD.

As you will see when we read how the Apostle Paul used the word infidel, it is clear to see that it is not those who don't bow down to allah that are infidels, but rather those who do. For it is those who bow down to any other than Yeshua that are infidels, those who are unsaved are infidels, those who are not born again Christians are infidels. So, in a sense, when the muslim horde lets out their blood curdling scream "Jihad, kill the infidels," and the target for this scream is Christian America, in a strange way they are telling the truth. For you see, the church of Laodicea for the most part is every bit as much infidel as those muslims screaming it are.

¶ O ye Corinthians, our mouth is open unto you, our heart is enlarged. Ye are not straitened by us, but ye are straitened by your own consciences. Now in return for the same, (I speak as unto my children,) be ye also enlarged. Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I WILL DWELL IN THEM, AND WALK IN THEM; AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE. WHEREFORE COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM, AND BE YE SEPARATE, saith the Lord, AND TOUCH NOT THE UNCLEAN THING; AND I WILL RECEIVE YOU, AND WILL BE A FATHER UNTO YOU, AND YE SHALL BE MY SONS AND DAUGHTERS, saith the Lord Almighty. 2 Corinthians 6:15

See the word infidel up there, I have underlined it, does it not apply to all who are not believers in Christ? Does it not apply to all who are not Born Again Christians? So, an infidel is not just those of the synagogue of satan, but those who are neither warm nor cold and will be spit from the mouth of the Lord because they are only luke warm(see Revelation 3).

But let us go a bit further and check what I've said by looking at the only other place in the Bible the word infidel is used.

¶ Rebuke not an elder, but treat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren; The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity. Honour widows that are widows indeed.

But if any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home, and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God. Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God, and continues in supplications and prayers night and day.

But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth. And these things give in charge, that they may be blameless. But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel. 1 Timothy 5:1-8

Look at the way Paul is using the word infidel, "he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel." The Apostle Paul is saying that one who denies his faith, denies Jesus, is even worse than one who never had that faith in the first place. Kind of makes you think about that ole favorite "Once saved always Saved."

How bad is the one that denies Christ? Well, we know what happens to all those who are unsaved, their place is in the lake of fire, along with allah and the rest of the names of the false gods that satan goes by. But, what about those who Paul is talking about above, those who are "worse than an infidel"? What about them?

Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father which is in heaven. Matthew 10:32&33

And what happens to those the Lord denies? The ones who are worse than an infidel? Let us look at various passages from the Book of Revelation.

He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before My Father, and before His angels. 3:5

And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 20:12

And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. 20:15

And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defiles, neither whatsoever works abomination, or makes a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life. 21:27

And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. 22:19

So, who are the infidels? An infidel is anyone who has not given his life to Christ. It is anyone who after having supposedly given themself to the Lord, changes his or her mind and later denies that Jesus is the Christ, the Yeshua, is the Messiah.

This weekend, let us concentrate on two things, first, let us concentrate on praying to the Lord for salvation for all those we know to be infidels. And second let us look for a way this weekend to bring the good news of the Gospel of Jesus, the Christ, to all those we know to be infidels. Oh and one other thing, pray that now that the war against terrorism is under way, that the President will start putting together a Chaplain Corp to go to these heathen muslim countries and preach the gospel to every creature. "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." Mark 16:15

May the Lord Yeshua be with you and bless you and yours this weekend. May He keep us all safe.

Amen.

Can you spare ten minutes?

Jesus tells us;

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

There is a man in his nineties, he is causing horrible problems for his family, he, to the best of my knowledge is unsaved. Please pray that the Lord either bring him to Him or stop him from causing so much trouble.

A Vietnam Vet with serious PTSD has a daughter who is just about to give birth. The complication is that she has had cancer of the Uterus and surgery for same, so its classed as a high risk birth with the possibility of a Hysterectomy if giving birth causes more damage. Her husband is in the Air Force and is deployed somewhere around the war zone. Please ask the Lord for His help in this, we need a safe baby, a safe mom and dad home for a week or two.

Last, a selfish one, kind off, please ask the lord to help my alternative energy business grow so that my wife has the option of staying home.

The Lord Yeshua be with you all.

Amen.

Don't worry, be happy

Let me give you two things to think about this morning. First, did you know that most of the gum used in the making of soda, candy and other store bought treats is imported from the muslim country that kills, enslaves and tortures Christians, the Sudan?

Did you know that bin laden and his terrorist are not even close to being in the league of the abortionist? Bin laden and his gangs have been linked to about 50,000 deaths over the last ten or so years, the abortionist in the US alone murder that many babies trapped in the supposed safety of their mothers wombs in under two weeks.

Yes, this is a pretty weird world we live in, while we bomb the bin laden net work back into the stone age, we use the powers of the same government to guard and protect the terrorist called abortionist. Our Army, Navy and Marine Corps are waging war against bin laden and his gang while our fbi and courts protect the abortionists that kills a million and a half babies a year.

But, thanks be to the Christ, we can be happy and not worry.

¶ Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:

But as He which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, BE YE HOLY; FOR I AM HOLY. And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judges according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 1 Peter 1:13-19

Yes, we can be happy and not worry, because, this is not our home, we are not children of this earth. We are the adopted sons and daughters of the Messiah, Christ Jesus. Our home is in heaven with Him. We are but sojourning here, visiting here on earth. For as a Born Again Christian, this not only is not your home, it is the closes we will ever come to hell. But for those who are unsaved, not only is this where they consider home, this is as close as they will ever get to heaven, for while they think of this earth as their home, they are but sojourners here as well, but their destination is the lake of fire.

So, don't worry about bin laden, don't worry about the fbi, the batf and the other secret police forces. Don't worry about Russia, China, Iran, Iraq, Egypt and Syria, keep your thoughts focused on where you are going, not where you've been or where you are now. Let those who are unsaved be scared of anthrax, smallpox and suitcase nukes, for they have much to fear, they have eternity to fear. But for those of us who are Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians, let death come, for with that earthly death comes the freedom and glory of being at home with the Lord in heaven.

If you are Christ, then read carefully what Jesus has to say to His church, the church of Philadelphia, His Bride, those of us who are Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians.

In My Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. John 14:2

So, what is the most important thing you can do?
What preparations can you make in this time of terrorist, terrorist outside our country and terrorist within our very government?
Do you know anyone who you doubt is saved?
Is there anyone out there that you even remotely, occasionally like enough not to see them rot in hell?
Anyone you love, really love who is unsaved?
Then what is the most important thing you can do? How about telling them what Christ did on the cross for them? Teaching them about the Christ, insuring they too will have nothing to fear?

And Jesus said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15

As a preacher, I can not be every where. Jesus is commanding you to preach every bit as much as He is commanding me to preach. Some one reached out to you, shouldn't you reach out to someone?

The Lord be with you all, may Yeshua, and let us get used to calling Him by the name He gave Himself in His own language. May Yeshua be with and bless you, may He keep you safe from His enemies and may He bless those who bless us and deal with those who curse us. And let us thank Him that He only listens to those who are His and not those who curse and hate us, His people.

Amen.

A warning.


From yesterdays World Net Daily:

"20 October: DEBKAfile has learned from military sources in Dushanbe and Bishbek, capitals of Tajikistan and the Kyrgizstan respectively, that at least 15 Chinese fighting men on the side of the Taliban, were killed in last week's US bombing over Kahandar, and in a separate incident on the ground. This report as confirmed by Pakistani sources in Peshawar, who discovered the Chinese presence alongside the Taliban from their own intelligence reports on the death of the commander of Arab Afghan troops in Jalalabad, Basir al Masri..."

Now, while I am neither a prophet nor the son of a prophet, you don't need to be a prophet to read the obvious and to take certain precautions in the age of chemical and biological warfare against the USA.

China is the avowed enemy of the USA. They have said this over and over again, we simply refuse to believe them. Even after they forced one of our planes down and hijacked the crew, holding them for ransom, we still refused to believe them. Well, my bothers and sisters, let us, the Body of Christ, be not as pig headed and stupid as those in our government, and those who are captains of industry in this nation. Let us assume for a minute that the Chinese really are our enemies and that they really do wish to see harm done to us and that yes in fact, Chinese troops are fighting against US forces, on the side of the Taliban in Afghanistan.

That said, what warning could I have for you? Well, don't buy any stuffed animals for your kids, grandchildren, or anyone else this Christian, for most of these are made in China or one of the third world nations controlled by the muslims. In one day, in under two hours, three muslims piloting three US Airliners cost ten thousand children a parent. That would be nothing compared to the deaths and agony we would be faced with if the Chinese or one of the other nations we import stuffed animals from were to put anthrax spores in those cuddley little stuffed animals. Remember if you will that it was the Chinese that killed and stuffed real kittens to get a realistic stuffed kitten to be sold at Hallmark stores for last years CHRISTmas rush.

Instead of a stuffed animal for CHRISTmas this year, one that may just doom the child to a horrible death. Why not, on the day we celebrate the birth of the Lord, give that child the gift of Life. Why not give him or her his own child's Bible? And as all children love to hear what is in every new book they receive, what better gift for him or her, then to read and explain to that child God's plan of salvation starting with John 3: 1-21. And on what better day than CHRISTmas to do just that.

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

While many preach that all children below a certain age go to heaven automatically if they die. And it does sound nice and it does make the parents of little ones who die feel good, there is no Scripture to support it. What Jesus teaches is that no one but no one will get into heaven unless they are Born Again. Search your bibles, see if you can find anything other than a quarter verse here or there that implies otherwise. This lie about all babies going to heaven serves no one better than satan, for through it, satan convinces many a young woman that if she aborts her baby she will be doing her baby a favor, for do not preachers preach that all aborted babies go straight to heaven? And is not heaven a better place than this world we live in?

Now after you have read John 3:1-21 to your child, and they say, "What must I do to be Saved?" What do you tell them?

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Jesus 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 Jesus shall not be ashamed. Romans 10:9-11

When they ask what that means, you simply tell them that all Jesus requires is that they pray, telling Jesus that they know they do wrong things, and that they want to be better. That they want Him to be their Lord, that they want to do what will make Him happy and they want Him to come and life within them helping them to do what is right and to be good. And then to tell others that they believe that Jesus was crucified so that they could life and that He arose from the dead after three days. And that now he or she is a Born Again Christian.

Now that, believe it or not is the easy part, for from here on out, you must commit to reading and studying that bible with that child every night before bed time for the rest of your life or until he or she gets married and moves out of your house.

And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. Luke 4:4

Do you know that after all these years, I still read my wife to sleep every night with the Bible. We just keep going through it and through it, neither she nor I ever get tired of it. Oh how I wish my dad and mom had done that we me. As I suppose they do too, for both died not as Born Again Christians, but as Roman Catholics.

If you really insist on giving a stuffed animal this year, make it yourself with materials you know to be safe, use old clothing from your closet and stuff it with material from your home or from a local farm in the area. Know the materials before you give them to your child to sleep with. Watch the way a baby sleeps with his or her stuffed animals, they literally breath through it. Your laziness might just cost your baby his or here life.

The Lord our God, Messiah Yeshua be with and bless you all this day. And please do not take after those who think the heathens are our friends, put your trust in the Lord and make Him the subject of this years CHRISTmas gifts. I would ask you to pray for our troops, our president and that the Lord would give the president and the attorney general the wisdom to perceive what is right and what is wrong. What is truth and what are lies as they go about restricting our rights and fighting this new war.

Amen.

But, how can this be?

But how can this be, a question asked of the Lord by Nicodemus and now a question asked by me of our ‘leaders'.

¶ There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto Him, "Rabbi, we know That thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that Thou does, except God be with Him."

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

Then Nicodemus said to Jesus, "How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?"

Nicodemus was asking God, "But, how can this be? How can one be born a second time? Can a grown man climb back into his mothers womb and be born again? Now Jesus could have ignored Nicodemus, just as He did when Nicodemus was complimenting the Lord by telling Him that he and others knew Jesus was God because they knew that no one but God could do the miracles that Jesus was doing. But this time, Jesus answered this question for Nicodemus and us. By saying:

"Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit." John 3:1-6

Now, I would ask the same question of those who are giving the orders concerning our war in Afghanistan against the terrorist. How is that we, the only super power on earth, have not destroyed the only country in the world that doesn't even have electricity? Is it because those who lead learned in Vietnam and are now doing the same things to our troops as did the leaders in Vietnam do to our fighting men in Nam? Are the politicians and generals in Washington micro managing the war? Are they second guessing the guys in the front lines? Are they so worried about what the terrorist sympathizers in the press are saying that they refuse to let our troops fight? Are they more concerned with good nightly news on nbc, cbs, abc and cnn then they are about winning and ending terrorism? Is our president using this as a platform to sound tough throughout the world, while at the same time telling Israel not to fight back against their own terrorist?

Personally, what is written above is pretty much what I am convinced of, but what to advise the troops? What does God tell the troops to do? Does He tell them to ignore the corrupt cowardly stay at home politicians and generals? Or does He tell them to follow orders? Well, talk to two different types of preachers and you'll get five or six different answers, all but one will come from ‘gut feelings' or the pepperoni pizza remnants from last nights pepperoni pizza. For God is very explicit about what the troops are to do.

And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages. Luke 3:14

Now let's look at these words carefully, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages. We shall go backwards.

"be content with your wages" Be content with what you are paid, do not grumble, do not steal, do not plunder, do your job for what you are being paid, and do what you are being paid to do.

"neither accuse any falsely" You guys on the front lines are the first and best line of intelligence. The information that you send back is the information that the arm chair generals and politicians are going to make their best guesses with. The more accurate you are, the better the chances that the right targets will get hit and you'll get out of there faster and with less loss of our guys lives. Don't be politically correct with your information, don't lie to get a target struck, just tell it like it is and do your job honestly and with the integrity that you have but many on the top lack. You must be so honest and show so much character that your excess of honesty, integrity and character makes up for the lack of those three virtues at the top.

Now we get to pulling the trigger, when you have a taliman in your sights, do you squeeze the trigger? "Do violence to no man", do violence to no man is not do not pull the trigger, it is, as is the commandant in the Ten Commandments is: Thou shalt not kill. Exodus 20:13

As in the Ten Commandments, God is not commanding you not to fight in war, nor to avoid the responsibility of defending your wife and family with deadly force if necessary, What the Lord is saying through John the Baptist is, do not kill those whom you now to be innocent. Don't listen to the press on this, don't listen to the pro abortion liberal preachers, listen to and study what God is saying. For what God is opposed to is the shedding of innocent blood. He is not telling you not to shoot the enemy, nor is He telling you not to use deadly force in defending your country, your family or those who are serving with you. Keep in mind, those politically correct ones who cry so loud over the killing of eight or nine civilians when a bomb hits a house instead of a tank, well they say nothing about the murder of 1.4 million babies each year who are slaughtered while sleeping peacefully within the supposed safety of their mothers wombs. As a mater of fact, they condone and promote this slaughter.

Take the shot. Just don't kill those you know to be innocent. That is not to say that if you know there to be a large concentration of enemy terrorist troops in a residential area that you should not target it, give information that is so accurate that those on the top, even though they are more interested in a good nightly review from peter jennings, then they are in either winning or securing your safety, might just make the right decision.

But, most important of all is this: Stay close to Christ, keep the Lord in your heart, keep in prayer, do not go out looking to defeat the evil of terrorism without the Lord. For this is not a fight between the USA and the enemies of this nation, this is a fight between good and evil and when you go to fight evil by ignoring the only good, Christ, you cannot and will not win. For how is it that evil will fight against and defeat evil. I'll close with some very important verses from Scripture so that you'll understand the above paragraph.

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

And Jesus called them unto Him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? If a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. Mark 3:22-26

¶ And, behold, one came and said unto Jesus, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. Matthew 19:16&17

May the Lord God of the universe be with you all, may He keep you safe and draw you to Him, may He keep you doing His will and not let any of you fall through the cracks to end up with those who corrupt our government, our military, our media, our judicial and police systems and the evil satan worshiping terrorist that have attacked our nation. And Lord give our men the courage that is so lacking in our congress and senate. Let them not be as the cowards are that call themselves congressman and senators. Lord give them the courage of Gideon and David.

Amen.



Weekend of October 20th & 21st, 2001, 6314 ATF

In remembrance of the Lord Jesus.

What if tomorrow your pastor told you that because of the unrest, he felt that it would be better that you, his congregation, meet in small house church groups. Would you be prepared to assume the responsibility of leading a service? How about communion? The time will come and may not be far off when we, the members of the Body of Christ will hear those words. We know that because the Lord Himself has told us that before rapture, before He returns for His bride, things will get really bad. He refers to it as the time called ‘sorrows'.

There are a number of verses dealing with communion, but we are going to focus on the most important, the ones with the warnings to unbelievers about taking communion with the Body. For it is these verses that the leader of the service must be aware of. For him to offer communion without warning an unsaved person of the dire consequences for his or her partaking of the Lords Blood and Flesh unjustly, he, the leader of the service would be most negligent indeed.

¶ For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which He was betrayed took bread: And when Jesus had given thanks, He brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is My body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of Me.

After the same manner also Jesus took the cup, when He had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in My blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of Me.

For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till He come. Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.

For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another. And if any man hunger, let him eat at home; that ye come not together unto condemnation. And the rest will I set in order when I come. 1 Corinthians 11:23-34

Do you understand what Paul is relaying to us there? Do you understand what he is relaying to us from God? Paul is warning us that if we partake of the Lord's Blood and Flesh in communion, is to be guilty of crucifying the Lord. Think about that. Now, if you are leading a service and you have one attending who is not Born Again, and you don't warn him or her of taking communion, how is that person to know he or she is doing wrong? To lead a service is one of the greatest privileges the Lord allows any on earth to have. To abuse that privilege and trust the Lord has placed in you, because of weakness or fear of hurting one's feelings is dangerous to say the least. Yet, if you refuse to accept that responsibility where will the believers meet?

Start preparing yourselves now, for make no mistake about this, the blood lust for the lives of Christians and patriots is starting to surface. Keep an eye on the secular news, listen to the radio, watch as they shift the blame form the muslims to the Christians, watch as they blame patriots for anthrax, small pox and every other disease that can or does raise its ugly head. For the news media, the majority of politicians, the abortionist, the communist all share the same god. They may call him by different names, some baal, some allah, some mother nature or mother earth, but they are all referring to and worshiping that same one god, satan. And the ones satan hates are not the muslims, not the media, not the abortionist and his or her supporters in political office, no his hatred is for the body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, the church of Philadelphia, the Born Again Christian community and the Jews.

Now I'm sure you understand why satan hates us, but why does he hate the Jew so? For the Jews have rejected the Lord as have the muslims and the rest of the satan worshipers. So why does satan hate them so? The prophecy of Jesus, the book He dictated to His Apostle John, the Book of Revelation answers that question quite well.

¶ And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand. Revelation 7:1-8

Who are these hundred and forty four thousand? And why does satan so fear them?

¶ And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Zion, and with Him an hundred forty and four thousand, having His Father's name written in their foreheads.

And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God. Revelation 14:1-5

You see, these are the ones who will carry the word of God into every corner of the earth during the time called Tribulation. Satan not only hates them, he fears them and what better way to insure against their being around than to eliminate the Jew today?

Yes my brothers the time is short, a year, a month, a hundred years, a thousand years, I don't know, but the handwriting is on the wall that a time of persecution of Christians and patriots in the USA looms on the immediate horizon. But nowhere does Jesus tell us that the time called ‘Sorrows' will be short or for that fact does He give us any idea as to its time length, but this we know, the persecution of the Church, which began while He walked the earth is going to get worse and worse till He comes for us. So prepare yourself. Prepare yourself by having the things of this world that you need, like extra food, clothes, and medicines and for the things that are really important, the things of the Soul, such as extra Bibles and your being able to lead the Body of Christ in communion.

The Lord be with you all and in the words of the beloved Apostle John, "Even so, come, Lord Jesus."

Amen.

Pray I am wrong


I am going to give you an excellent reason to pray for President Bush and his advisers and staff every day. To pray that President Bush will be able to discern the truth from the lies that will be presented to him by such as the fbi, cia, department of justice and others whose information he has come to rely upon. For I have little if any doubt that soon, the president will be given information to sway his opinion that patriots first and Born Again Christians next are responsible for the attacks against our nation. Just as the Clinton regime was convinced by those in the fbi and the media that the patriot communities of this country were responsible for the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City, and as he and his attorney general were convinced that the beating death of a homosexual out west was the result of preaching of the those within the Church of Philadelphia. So will those same entities start planting the seeds of accusations against both patriots and Born Again Christians. Blaming us for the attacks. Militias first and then Born Again Christians. Those referred to by the media as ‘Fundamental Christians' or ‘Right wing Christians' can soon expect to bear the blunt of the accusations in answer to the question of "Why was America attacked?". Watch as peter jennings and his ilk spit out with venom the phrase "Christian Militias".

Will the president belief them? I don't know, God knows, but I don't. Can we work to prevent his falling for the lies as his predecessors did? Maybe, but only through and act of God, by God giving President Bush insight into the truth and strength to act upon that truth. And that will only happen through and because of our prayers.

Jesus warns us:

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

But regardless of whether we be blamed and persecuted now, or later, these things must come to pass, for the Lord has so pronounced it in His word of prophecy.

My the Lord be with you all this day, may He keep us and ours safe from the raging heathen hordes who will try to use these acts of terrorism to attack His church, His body, us, His church of Philadelphia. Lord give us strength, the strength to stand firm in Your word and in Your shadow for we are Your chicks, your sheep.

Amen.
