It is of significant importance to Note to the Free World that Christianity and Democracies are a Concept. Freedom. Linked they are so powerful that Capital Cities are of no importance in Pure War. The war of 1812 fought on American soil proved this.
Jesus Said this when he and the Pophets continually prophesied against Jerusalem. Daniel Proved this when he, explained Rome and the old world, and the new Kindgdom of Christ.
Dan 2:32 This image’s head [was] of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,
Dan 2:33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.
Dan 2:34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet [that were] of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.
Dan 2:35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
“Pastor Thomas reminded us that while we are part of an organization with rules and regulations, our Christianity does not depend on them. They are there to support our relationship with God, not replace it. We can’t follow all the guidelines set forth by an organization and expect it to save us. Instead, every Christian’s personal relationship with God is what they have to depend on.”
Moments before Pastor Thomas said: “Isaiah 9:6?For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
The prophet Isaiah told us that God was going to bring a new way of governing. Everything would rest on the shoulders of the messiah that was going to come. Things would not be familiar, or even status quo. Change was coming. Before Jesus was born, everything was run according to the laws of the Old Testament. There were rules and regulations set in place that governed the lives of those who followed God, but things are totally different now. Jesus has raised from the dead. Now, we are governed by our relationship with a personal savior.”
Peace From The Inside Out. Sunday, Mar 8, 2009: By Pastor Edward J. Thomas. http://www.mychristianfellowship.org/apr26_09_peace_inside_out.php
“To host someone is to entertain and amuse them. It’s a big responsibility, and sometimes it can be hard. When you have someone in your home, hosting them means putting their needs first and making sure that they’re taken care of. And when done right, hosting someone is a task that can bring great joy.”
Hosting One Another. Sunday, Mar 3, 2009: By Pastor Hubert Ulysse. http://www.mychristianfellowship.org/may3_09_hosting_one_another.php
Mothers And Fathers of today in the Christian Lifestyle do a lot for their children. They host them. Then they go the extra mile to make sure those children can do the following for one another
Visualize: In verse seven the questions is posed: “why not just take the blame?” Pastor Ulysse told a story about when he was out to sea in the US Navy. He and his wife had to communicate over the phone, and sometimes they would have disagreements. He said that he would get so frustrated that he would hang up the phone and take a few minutes to calm down. He would always come to the same conclusion: He would call back, take the blame for whatever the disagreement was about, and promise to make things better. Was he always at fault? Probably not. He knew that, but he also knew that the most important thing was making sure his family was in tact, and that they were happy. How different would our church family look if we all took this approach to taking blame? Matthew 5:40-48 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.
Mt 20:28 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
Mr 10:45 For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
Joh 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
To summarize this we must accept that no one is perfect, and that every person in our life is not always going to be perfect. God Simply wants us to continue to try to please one another without compromising his Commandments. and while maintaining our freedoms bought at such high prices by our founding fathers and recent forefathers. No matter how hard that may be. Try till the day we die and we get the prize. Like many of them have.
