Hear Ye The Rod! Judgment’s Voice


 

“…Hear   Ye   The   Rod…”

The LORD’S voice crieth unto the city, and the man of wisdom shall see thy name: hear ye the rod, and who hath appointed it.”

(Micah 6:9)

In Micah 6:6-9 the Lord has a controversy with

Ignorance

Not ignorance in general, I’m talking about willful ignorance… being stupid on purpose. People don’t like it when you say this or that is God’s judgment.

You want controversy?  Just say Katrina was the judgment of God or tell people Haiti’s earthquake was the judgment of Almighty God.  If you really want to stir them up, say that AIDS is God’s judgment on sodomites.

That’s when people tell you what they really think. Oh, “You’re not very Christlike… Jesus preached love… Jesus said you shouldn’t judge… He said let him that is without sin cast the first stone…” and all that other stuff liberal Devils love to twist and take out of context. (See picture to right)

But even they have to admit, whether you’re talking about AIDS, whether you’re talking about 9/11 or some natural disaster, God still knew about it before it happened… He knew who would get hurt; He knew how many people would die; but He let it happen anyway!

God rules and overrules in the affairs of men and there’s not a tragedy in this world that has ever taken Him by surprise.  In fact I believe He does things to shake us up every now and then… get us out of our comfort zone. “Hear ye the rod!

The purpose of a rod is to bring the pain.  It’s got no mouth but it speaks volumes.  Let me illustrate.  My nephew is a great kid but he can be every bit as stubborn as his uncle Jason.  Mom can say, “Seth, stop that…” But he won’t pay her a bit of attention. She can say, “Stop that or I’ll call your dad…” and he’ll probably hand her the phone.

But when he hears Papa’s belt unbuckle and that pap-pap-pap sound it makes coming out of the belt loops… son, does he ever get cooperative!  He knows he’s sinned and he’s real anxious to get it right.  He hears the rod! And because he hears it, he might not have to feel it.

The problem we have in this country is the same problem Israel had.  We FEEL the rod but we don’t HEAR it. “For the people turneth not unto him that smiteth them, neither do they seek the LORD of hosts.” (Isaiah 9:13)


….MORE TO COME….

Abortion & Health Care


ABORTION

&

The Health Care Bill


Does the new Health care bill provide funding for abortion at the expense of taxpayers?  The answer would have to be “Yes” regardless of what promises Obama made to Bart Stupak.  If you’ve not read the bill yet (who has?) you can find a copy of it here.

On pg. 591 it appears they are going to use tax dollars to give “postpartum” counseling to women who abort their babies.  I mean, that’s what it looks like to me. The dad blame thing is over 2000 pages long and there could be something amending that language but, that’s how I read it. These people are sick in the head. They’re going to make us pay to kill babies then provide counseling if the woman feels bad about it!  Talk about adding insult to injury!

While I probably wouldn’t use the same language as John Boehner, I can still understand his anger and frustration.

Abortion is wicked and “God is angry with the wicked every day.” “These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a

lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood…”

(Read the rest of the passage for yourself.  I’m going to park on that last point.)

More than 42 million unborn babies have lost their lives since the US Supreme Court decided on January 22, 1973, that women have a constitutionally protected right to have an abortion On average, 3,836 pre-born babies have been routinely eliminated every day for thirty years. That means since 1973, unwanted babies have had their lives ended at an average rate of 2.5 per minute, 160 per hour, and 1,400,000 a year.

To those that claim the name of Christ, don’t even pretend to care about this issue unless you are registered to vote. If you’re not doing everything you

can to get these bunch of fag-loving baby-killers out of office, you should be ashamed to call yourself a Christian.

Closing Remarks

In conclusion, if you are a woman who’s had an abortion, as horrible as it is, God still wants to forgive you. If you’re not saved, there’s a God in Heaven Who’s not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. Two thousand years ago, God sent His only-begotten Son down to this sin-cursed world we live in. He didn’t come to be worshipped necessarily; He came to be a sacrifice for all mankind. After all, someone has to pay for your sins. That’s why Christ died. He died in our place, suffered our shame, and bore our sins. If you reject Christ’s offer to put your sins under His blood and hide them from Holy eyes of our God, you will spend eternity in Hell. How do you come to Christ? You come with a simple, child-like faith. “Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” Find out what God’s Word says, then call on God the best way you know how – Repent of your sins – and put your faith in what Jesus did on the cross! (2Cor 5:21) After you get saved, join a local, Independent, fundamental, Bible believing, King-James-only, soul winning, Baptist Church. I highly recommend my home Church: Tabernacle Baptist

Abortion: I’m Against It


ABORTION

Why I’m Against It


aborted baby

Burned by the saline solution used to abort her, this precious 4-½ month (2nd trimester) old baby girl lies dead. Slaughtered and chemically cooked alive at the hands of a money hungry, Godless, doctor.

WOULD YOU CONSIDER HAVING AN ABORTION IN ANY OF THE FOLLOWING SITUATIONS?

  1. There’s a preacher and wife who are very, very poor. They already have 14 children, and now she finds out she’s pregnant with the 15TH. They’re living in tremendous poverty. Considering their poverty and the excessive world population, would you consider recommending an abortion?
  2. The father is sick with a bad cold; the mother has tuberculosis (TB). They have 4 children. The 1st is blind, the 2nd is dead, the 3rd is deaf, and the 4th has TB. She finds out that she’s pregnant again. Given this extreme situation, would you consider recommending an abortion?
  3. A white man has raped a 13-year-old black girl, and she became pregnant. If you were her parents, would you consider an abortion?
  4. A teenage girl is pregnant. She’s engaged but her fiancé is not the father and now he’s thinking about calling off the marriage.

Would you consider an abortion under any of these circumstances? If you said yes to the first case, you just killed John Wesley, one of the greatest evangelists of the nineteenth century. If you said yes to the second case, you killed Ludwig van Beethoven. If you said yes to the third case, you killed Ethel Waters, the great black gospel singer. And, if you said yes to the fourth case, you killed Jesus Christ.

Good Fathers & Church


On Father’s Day, I preached on Good and Bad Fathers.   I hate to preach on themes but the importance of Father’s can’t be overemphasized.  This is an excerpt from that message:

In the United States, 68 million men don’t attend any church at all. That’s in spite of the fact that 86% of them, (nearly 9 out of 10) grew up in a church of some kind or another.

And if we’d be honest there’s a huge gap in most of our Independent Baptist churches.  We may have good numbers when it comes to the younger children but attendance for college age kids is pathetic.  I challenge you to do your own study and count the number of college-age kids that you know who live on their own but are still faithful to the house of God. They are few and far between.

That’s why I tell the kids in Sunday school that their church attendance and the way they live right now doesn’t impress me a bit. I know their parents and frankly they’ve got no choice but to live right while under their roof. That’s the way it ought to be. But, my point was that I want to see what they live like when they get out from under mom and dad. When they’re free to do as they please; that’s when we’ll find out what’s really in their hearts.

And so many churches everywhere are struggling to reach out to young people. But sometimes I’m afraid they target youth to the point that they neglect everybody else!

Over and over you hear the same scenario playing out. Some wet-behind-the-ears preacher comes to a church and starts changing things. All of a sudden, the older members are upset because they’ve stopped singing those old hymns about the blood.

Instead of hymn books the words are now up on the screen and members start hearing songs they’ve never heard before. “Amazing Grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me” becomes an unfamiliar tune.

When you walk into the sanctuary, there’s a band where the choir loft used to be.  They turn down the lights and serve popcorn in the House of God.

Occasionally, some effeminate-looking man with long hair will step on stage and sing some of the most sensual, dead-as-Hell, God-is-my-girlfriend-music you’ve ever heard in all your life.

And though the older saints of God are offended, they’re almost shamed into silence when that liberal snake of a preacher says, “But we’re trying to reach the children!”  Thus, because they want to believe he has good intentions, the people let the preacher lead the church into religious liberalism.

If you know somebody that goes to a church like that, I want you to get a pen and write this down. It may not even be true but it sure does make good preaching. (Sorry, I found these statistics in my notes with no citation.) I read where researchers concluded that

  • If the child is the 1st one to get saved in the family there’s only a 3.5% chance that the rest of the family will get saved.
  • If the mother is the first to get born again then there is a 17% chance that the rest of the family will follow her.
  • But, if the father is the first to get saved then there is a 93% chance that the rest of the family will also get gloriously, wonderfully, saved by the grace of God.

I believe that’s what Paul was talking about when he said, “…Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” (Ac 16:31) So again, I can’t stress the importance of a Father and the influence he has on the salvation of his family enough.
