Proclaim the Lord Jesus Christ as your one and only Savior. Not Mary, not Buddha, not Mohammad.
: CHRIST-LIKE; Little Jesus
the church in America is doomed
if we don't realize that WE NEED TO BE CHRISTLIKE
ONCE AGAIN! We can't
be the ones that sit
in our church pews while the homeless beg for money and work on the streetcorner,
or when they ask for a place to sleep, we say "you can sleep in the parking
lot". WHERE'S the COMPASSION?? If you're REALLY a TRUE Christian, there
shouldn't be a need to ASK you, it should be SHOWING and OBVIOUS. Obviously
the new Episocopal Bishop is NOT.
My theories on the Middle East "Road Map"
that this will ultimately fail, but it may be successful at first... I
believe that there is a strong possibility that OUT of this AS it fails
could come the Antichrist, that lawless one from a Revived Roman Empire
mentioned in Daniel, to come out and get "REAL" peace between Israel and
the world. Followers of End Times Pre-Trib theology know that that will
be the beginning of the end. For me, it gives me great HOPE, that our
redemption draws near.
to Muhammad from last week
reaction would be to quietly disagree and want to have a dialogue, and
if a Christian, would pray for them to understand --- not beat them into
submission or understanding with a wooden stick!
In this coming Sunday's broadcast of 60 Minutes, Jerry Falwell is interviewed on his position regarding the Evangelical Christian support of the nation of Israel. He is also quoted, Yahoo News story as saying Mohammed was a terrorist.
agree, he certainly was! It is certainly evidenced in modern day news,
in Israel, in the 9/11 attacks, etc., etc. If Islam was truly a
religion of peace, why are thousands of Muslims suffering due to their
own persecution of women, christians, and having suicide bombers attack
Israel and now the US?

Speaking of which...
A friend of mine has insisted to me that he has no need to read the Left Behind books or have any part of prophecy of End Times discussion. How folly that advice is! First, we are to be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. Second, we are to be watchers of the wall, to alert the people when someone or something is coming. In this instance, we are to be watching the leaders of the world, and looking for Christ's coming, looking for the signs! God chastised the foolish virgins who did not keep their lamps filled with oil to see his coming, let's not be like those! Not only so, but 30% of the Bible is devoted to the Last Days and Prophecy. Are we just to throw it all away and ignore it? Apparently so, according to many pastors nowadays...
In my last rant, I discussed that I had run out of time to make personal comments, as it affected my working conditions. This is no longer the case, so I am free to say what I want..in a way.
I have been reminded that we are not our own, that we were bought with a price. Jesus instructed that if something in our bodies causes us to sin, that we should "cut it off, and throw it away" as the above verse applies. I think Christ was speaking metaphorically, and possibly about our church bodies as well. I will be the first to tell you I am NOT a trained theologian, nor have I attended cemetery school (seminary). However, I have grown up in the christian church, where I feel more damage was done than if I had grown up in the secular schools. Certainly I feel I would have been safer. Anyway, my point is, I have gone through the most Phariseeical churches this land must offer, I have watched countless shows on TBN and other channels that have no business proclaiming they are christian or that their ministry is "God's ministry" when in fact it is their business. Somehow I managed to still find the REAL Christ, not the tv Christ, and did not end up "Twice the son of Satan" as Jesus said of the Pharisees. I love Jesus with all my heart. He is my Lord and Savior, and I want to be with him constantly. However I believe he has set it upon my heart to counter the Pharisee spirit that is in the world today, and worstly -- the Christian Church.
One thing I have been gently reprimanded by the Lord is by judging a little
I read the other day, from a past issue of Our Daily Bread from July 24th, 2002. If you have this copy, you can turn to that page and read what it says, I will paraphrase it for you now (so as hopefully not to anger the copyright guardians).
Powerful Lesson" (paraphrased)
Let's follow Paul's example of focusing on God and what he has done, and especially what he can do in the lives of others! I know I am trying my best to. I will say, it's not easy being human and being christian!
Let's pray FOR our people, not against them!
said, there are still many many things in our country that need to be
changed and or fixed.
I can tell you, as a formerly abused child, that is a light sentence indeed! This is not a time for religious "tolerance", this is a time for swift and appropriate action against these terrorists of the mind, body and soul.
also, Romans 12:2 says
Let us pray for our nation, but not only pray. Take action! DO something! The old phrase, "Don't just stand there, DO SOMETHING!" SCREAMS out at us as Christians, NOT to stand idly by!
next time, God bless and see you in the air if Christ comes first!
