Friday Nite Prayer

We hae been rpaying about merging with a small Hispanic Church in our area. This was my prayer as began our meeting Friday evening.

Heavenly father, Padre celestial, Sovereign King, el Rey Soberano, we gather in Your Name, nos reunimos en Su nombre, to seek your will, para buscar tu voluntad, let us find your favor, vamos a encontrar a su favor, as we seek to do your work, a medida que tratamos de hacer su trabajo, and be your Church, y ser su Iglesia, Amen,
please forgive my translation if it is awkwark or chunky.

Touch My Child and Get Hurt

Leviticus 20:1-5 ESV The LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 "Say to the people of Israel, Any one of the people of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn in Israel who gives any of his children to Molech shall surely be put to death. The people of the land shall stone him with stones. 3 I myself will set my face against that man and will cut him off from among his people, because he has given one of his children to Molech, to make my sanctuary unclean and to profane my holy name. 4 And if the people of the land do at all close their eyes to that man when he gives one of his children to Molech, and do not put him to death, 5 then I will set my face against that man and against his clan and will cut them off from among their people, him and all who follow him in whoring after Molech.

This was this mornings study. Got to love a subject like Child Sacrifice! That will get you going first thing in the morning. We really don’t see much of this for the most part in America except for an occasion new broadcast in a major city or and episode of Law & Order. The picture of Abraham going to sacrifice Isaac comes to mind, but that is about it. But how else do we sacrifice Children.

We sacrifice our children by not spending time with them. We sacrifice our children when we neglect them by not leading them in faith. We sacrifice our children to Molech when we allow them to develop a love for the things of the world and not for Christ. Most children of Christians spend their lives worshiping Molech, sacrificing themselves to Molech and tipping their hat to Yahweh. This is because we set them up for it by not teaching them to find pleasure in exalting Jehovah.

God has a word to those who would suffer His children, to those who would even sacrifice them.

5 then I will set my face against that man and against his clan and will cut them off from among their people, him and all who follow him in whoring after Molech.

Now how do you feel with what you do to you kids, with what you allow in to your kids lives, what you permit them to love instead of Christ. Allowing the to love the world and follow it, is as the Bible says whoring and we will be cut off from God for it.

What's Poppin

  • Wednesday went well, got a lot done, but still more to go
  • Services were good. music was strong, the study we did was on great - 1 kings 5 - realtionship, opportunities, excellence, worship and offering.
  • Got more meeting lately that I ever wanted.
  • Really want to see what the Lord is going to do this weekend as we cover "Who's in Your Corner" in our Fight the Good Fight series that we statted last week.
  • Took another step closer to getting a real class for men started. It is takeing longer because I want a class that is more like a Bible Fight Club that the average Bible Study.
  • The Wifey is so hooked on face book! Yet she is really pumped about the going for Evangelism Training even if it is in a tuck place like FLORIDA!!! Poor her. Pray this works out because she is way too excited to learn to teach other how to share the Gospel to not get to go?
  • I really want to move to a practice of Truck Driver Approved Music. That is, if masculine, manly, testosterone filled Truck Driver is not willing to Stand up on a stool at the local trucks stop and belt it out, then we don't want to sing it either. TDAM is the kind of music we must transition to if we want to reach men and their families. Oh, and all the doilies have to go to!

not your peeps but the poor

Luke 14:12-14 ESV He said also to the man who had invited him, "When you give a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, lest they also invite you in return and you be repaid. 13 But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, 14 and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the just."

I love Church people and I love doing things with other Christians, but we need to spend time with the spritually poor just as much so the can be redeemed by Christ.
