SCRIPTURE

“But those who brazenly violate the Lord’s will, whether native-born Israelites or foreigners, have blasphemed the Lord, and they must be cut off from the community. Since they have treated the Lord’s word with contempt and deliberately disobeyed his command, they must be completely cut off and suffer the punishment for their guilt.”

~Numbers 15:30-31, NLT

QUOTE

Free will is one of two things: compliance or defiance.

I am rather certain that you have never heard of Christopher Hitchens: ethnically, he was a Jew but in religion, he was an atheist. Being a Christ hater, it does seem rather odd that he didn’t change his first name.  He wrote a book entitled: God Is Not Great. Atheist are such hypocrites; why spend your life fighting something that doesn’t exist. Of course, you and I know that God does exist and that He is infinitely great. Hitchens’ book is pushed by the FREEDOM FROM RELIGION FOUNDATION. I could tell you about this group but why don’t you Google it and read for yourself.

In my daily bible study, I do one chapter in the Old Testament and one in the New. Yesterday I was in Numbers 15 and Matthew 23; I was amazed at the connection. Jesus said to the Pharisees, “You will be held responsible for the murder of all godly people of all time—from the murder of righteous Abel to the murder of Zechariah.” The Jews, going back to the ancient Israelites had a propensity to defiance, this is what made them so hard to govern. Nothing has actually changed, it was the Jews who showed contempt for Jesus and it was the Jew who plotted and cheered His death. It was the Jews who chased Paul from city to city as predicted by Jesus in Matthew 23. We must balance this truth with the fact that there has always been a faithful and believing remnant among the Jews. That remnant exist today and the migration of Jews to the Holy Land is, in my opinion, a part of the remnant. They haven’t acknowledged Jesus as the Messiah yet but they will. I think the wealthy Jews in America who support FREEDOM FROM RELGION FOUNDATION, AMERICA CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION, AMERICA ATHEIST SOCIETY and all of these Christ hating organizations are going to be judged with the Pharisees because of their contempt for God, His word and His Son.

Look at what James said about the rich Jews: Look here, you rich people: Weep and groan with anguish because of all the terrible troubles ahead of you. Your wealth is rotting away, and your fine clothes are moth-eaten rags. Your gold and silver are corroded. The very wealth you were counting on will eat away your flesh like fire. This corroded treasure you have hoarded will testify against you on the day of judgment. Check it out, James was addressing the Jewish community, he never reached out to the Gentiles. He could have said, Look here, you rich Jews, because that is who he had in mind.

  • Ruth Bader Ginsburg was appointed by Slick Willy. She is the first Jew to sit on the court. She is a member of the ACLU and co-founder of WOMEN’S RIGHTS PROJECT an arm of the ACLU. She supports the killing of the unborn and is a good or bad example of the rich Jew in America. She has done nothing to help God fearing, freedom loving, tax paying Americans. She did help women get the right to kill their babies.
  • Sorry, Will’s pie chart got me stirred up.
  • Joe David visited the hospitals today: Dian Taylor was doing better, thank you for praying.
  • REVIVAL begins Sunday, it has been on the books for more than a year. This is not a weekend to take off and get away; it is a time to COME TOGETHER. Every member is important and every member will be missed. If you are taken away providentially, pray for the revival every day.
  • Beautiful day yesterday and we should have another today: Gregg is coming out this morning and we are going to try to get the drain problem solved in the FORTE. We are going to be minus three shrubs by about 9:00 am I hope. If you want to save them, you better show up about 8:00.
  • DHS boys last game of the Season tonight: wow, did the season go by in a hurry or what.
