Thought For Today

12-Mar-2004

Todays thought is a bit longer than usual. For those who do the monthly bible studies, or the New Testament Only bible study they have already read this. This is the cover sheet for the March 2004 Bible Study NTO. At the bottom I am going to include some scriptures that I think are appropriate for this thought for today, and also some more of what I think!

March Bible Study 2004 NTO Cover Sheet

Revelation 21:1 AND I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

My heart is heavy for the youth in this corrupt world we live in! The youth of this world is fighting daily the powers of the enemy, and many are losing the battle! You know the older peoples of the world are suppose to guide the young people in the right direction! Many of the older people have gotten their sense of right and wrong confused, and they are leading the young in the wrong direction! I know that all of us make mistakes with the youth in our lives, we do this because we are human, but if we are christians we should allow God to lead us in every situation. When we realize we have made a mistake concerning our young adults and youth we need to do whatever is needed to make it right again. We should lay the pride aside and get going in the right direction again. I look around me and see children that have been cast aside because their parents are too caught up in their drugs, or alcohol to care for them. The children get in their way, so they shove them off on relatives, or friends, or anyone who will take them for a little awhile, or longer in some cases. God have mercy on those that cast aside their little ones for their own earthly lusts!

Look around you youth, look around you young adults, this is the world we are giving you to live in! We have allowed it to become a corrupt and Godless place, and now we leave it to you! Our God is being removed from our government, God is no longer allowed in our schools, what is this telling our young adults and youth?? The Ten Commandments offend people so we can't have them in public government buildings, what is this telling our young adults and youth?? State governments are allowing women to marry women and men to marry men and this is an abomination of God, but yet our leaders are allowing it, what is this telling our young adults and youth?? Millions of unborn babies are being MURDERED every year in this great nation called the United States of America and the government says it's OK, what is this telling out young adults and youth?? Parents are told if you whip your child it is child abuse and your child can be taken away from you if it's reported and proven, yet, the schools are giving away free condoms, and birth control pills, what is this telling our young adults and youth?? From what I understand, drugs, alcohol abuse, homosexuality, immoral acts, ungodly language, and perverted speech and gestures have become an everyday occurance in our public schools and nothing is being done about it, what is this telling our young adults and youth?? What have we allowed to happen to our society?? What are we giving to our children?? What are we teaching our young adults?? How can we stand idly by and let our children, and grandchildren face what's coming without even a protest on our part?? My God what have we done, what have we allowed to happen, what can we do to stop this corruption that we have allowed to overcome our society?? Is it too late to fix it?? We have allowed our country to become Sodom and Gomorah!! My God have mercy on us, My God I am so, so sorry!! Forgive me Lord for my part in allowing this to happen!! Forgive me Lord! I apologize to the young adults, and youth in this our United States of America, I am so, sorry for doing this to you! I am so sorry for leaving this mess for you to deal with! If we had only spoken up sooner maybe you would'nt have to face this horrible ungodly society, but we sat by and allowed the enemy to gain control of our nation, and now look!!

I don't know what else to say to the young adults and youth except look to God, keep your eye's upon the Lord. Read his word daily, do not allow the ungodly youth of this nation to steer you from your destiny with God. But, instead, try to steer them to the Lord. They don't hate God, they have simply never met him! They don't hate you, they just don't understand how someone could be happy in todays world, they just need to meet Jesus! Remember, until they give their heart to God they will not understand you, they will not understand the way you think, the way you talk, the way you live, the reason you are happy, the reason you love others, they have to know God to understand these things about you!! Don't be discouraged by their remarks, or their actions, or gestures! Remember, they are being guided by the enemy, and your mission as a child of God is to win them over to God! Will they laugh at you when you talk to them about God, Yes! Will they call you names when you talk to them about God, Yes! Will they curse, and blasphemy the Lord when you talk to them about God, Yes! Will they make fun of you because you love God, Yes! Will they become like you and love God when they give their heart to God, Yes! Pray daily young adults and youth! Don't allow the enemy to fool you, discourage you, or trick you into falling away from God, BECAUSE where you spend eternity (FOREVER) is at stake!! Hold fast to your belief, do not weaken in your faith, believe the word of God and live it no matter what!! Perhaps you can fix this mess we have allowed to overcome our society. But, I don't think so, I believe this is the end days, I believe the bible is soon to be fulfilled, I believe you are the Joshua Generation, I believe Jesus will return for his church soon, I believe you are the generation that will be crossing over, I believe you are the last generation that will be living on this old earth!

Revelation 21:1 AND I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

I could go on with scriptures from the word of God warning us about what is about to happen. Read II Peter Chapter 2. If I have made someone mad with this thought (Or thoughts) then so be it! Look at what is happening in California and Massachusettes, is this not modern day Sodom and Go-mor'-rah?? Just look at what we have allowed to happen in our land just because we sat back and assumed that our elected leaders would do what was best for us! HA, what a joke, the majority of our elected leaders do what they want, they do what is in their hearts and minds, they do not care about the people, or the nation as a whole, they care about their own greed, their own lusts, they are taking this United States down the road to destruction, and friends we have done passed the point of turning this nation around! You say I am talking gloom, and doom? You Bet I am!!! Read the bible, every nation that has turned it's back on God and become wicked with homosexuality running rampant, all through history has been destroyed by the Almighty!! We are no different!! It's coming, yes it is just around the corner!! Have I offended you Mr. homosexual GOOD! Have I offended you Miss. Lesbian GOOD!! I pray for you, I love you, but I hate your lifestyle, your lifestyle goes against God's Law, and against nature! I will be silent no more about your filthy vile lifestyle, I will speak my mind about you and your kind! Women marrying women, men marrying men, you people are sick! You are committing an abomination before God, you may say you don't believe in God, or that God wouldn't hurt you if he loves you! WRONG!! God is very real!! And God will strike you dead and cast your soul into a firey pit located in a place called hell!! Read your bibles, understand what God is saying in these scriptures here. The bible is true, every word.

Heavenly Father, our Almighty God, Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, our Creator, we stand before you this day Lord with our hearts open to you, we ask you Lord to move into our hearts and lives completely!! God take control of our lives, Father we surrender to you!! We give our lives to you, you guide us, you give us the right words, the right thoughts, the right steps, the right lives! My Lord we only want to do what you would have us do. We realize we are fighting the prince of darkness, and he has launched an attack against your church. In recent months the attack has become intense leading us to believe that something mighty is about to happen! I pray Father you strengthen us every one, God give strength to those that ask for it with a pure heart! Forgive those that ask forgiveness with a pure heart! I ask you my Lord to answer the prayers of those that ask with a pure heart! Lord prepare us for the coming battles, make us stronger in you daily. Allow us to understand that each battle we win only makes us stronger in you! Father I rejoice for the battles I fight, I thank you for your strength to win them, I praise you my God, and I know that in the end all will be fine, through you we win!! Thank you my Saviour, In Jesus holy name I pray, A-men'
