Sermon 10-13-2019
November 3, 2019, 3:53 pm
Filed under: Culture, God | Tags: ,

This is a sermon delivered by our Pastor, Brother Ned Sitzes. The sermon deals with the problem that has become a reality in our society. It asks the question, “Why are God’s people not standing for Jesus?” What we are talking about of course is the Christian church in all its various types. It seems that Pastors don’t like to talk about Hell, they talk about Heaven, but the other side of the coin is Hell. People, however, don’t like to hear about the trust of eternal life in hell, they only like to hear about eternal life in heaven.

Brother Ned based his words in Hebrews chapter 10, Romans 3:23 and 6:23, and then Deuteronomy 4:9.

 

 



God of the Living

Jesus never did a Funeral he is God of the Living because he has given all who come to know him as Lord and Savior eternal life in the precincts of Heaven. We live in a world steeped in sin, a people who want only to fill a void in their heart. Drugs, alcohol, sexual pleasures, none of these will fill that void. Money, you can’t take it with you into eternity. Jesus offers what Satan cannot give, his fate is sealed, you as long as you are still alive, can choose eternal life in heaven, or, eternal darkness in the lake of fire. Please listen to what I say in the video. I implore any who hear to act if you do not know Jesus Christ as your Lord. If you think this world is hard, it is going to be much worse! Choose Christ or choose Hell!



Hatred against Christians

It seems that the Democrat Party really hates Christians because they take every opportunity to rid our society of all references to Christ, the Cross, and of course our belief in the sanctity of life. In the book of Matthew, there is a conversation between Jesus and a Pharisee.

Mat 22:36-40 ESV  “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?”  (37)  And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.  (38)  This is the great and first commandment.  (39)  And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.  (40)  On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”

Now Jesus has just said something that I think a lot of the people in the Democrat Party have forgotten, I say this because I do not see a whole lot of love between them and those of us who are citizens of this nation. What has transpired this past couple of weeks has been nothing short of horrifying. Insane people taking innocent lives with unspeakable violence. that goes without saying a terrible act. What followed, however, was even worse simply because the Democrat Party especially those running for President blamed the President of the United States for the violence. Some even went so far as to say he was directly responsible, as if, he had ordered the death of all those people.

This President has worked to be the President of all the people, not just some of them. He has also acted in ways that work to preserve the reality of the Republic. Sanctity of life, love of country, reverence for the Constitution. He has worked to change laws where he could and to mitigate wrongs, such as a life sentence for a minor drug conviction. Yet we hear from the Democrat Party, that he hates blacks, Hispanics, women, and Muslims. Yet he has not acted in any way against any of these groups. Yes, he has limited immigration from certain countries, yet those countries don’t have any way to tell you who is or is not one of their citizens. He has tried to block terrorists from using the chaos in the middle east to gain entry into our nation.

As for as being against blacks, women or any other group, where is the evidence of that? Each of the groups in our nation now have full employment and are enjoying the fruits of their labors. As for Muslims, I have not seen any animosity by this President against this group, I have seen him calling out Muslims who have been attacking our nation, and himself, but then he does that to others as well.

So, to get back to the main topic, hatred against Christians in our nation. I find it very difficult to see why the Democrat Party hates God, the people in the House of Representatives, have done away with “so help me God” in the swearing in ceremonies, which of course is another indication of wanting to get God out of the way of what they are looking to accomplish. They seem to want dead babies, even after birth in some states now. This nation was founded by men who believed that God was an integral part of their lives. We find Jefferson inviting clergy to come to the Capitol to bring the word on Sunday mornings. The Congress even funded the publication of bibles to bring to the Indians to show them about God and to perhaps bring some to Jesus.

Now here we are today, the Democrats are working to remove God from everywhere they can, from the walls of State and City buildings, school buildings, even many courthouses. I cannot understand why that is, Jesus said that we are to love our neighbor as ourself and yet here we find hatred for over 50% of our nation. President Obama talked about people who cling to their guns and their Bibles. Hillary Clinton called us deplorables, as well as homophobes, and other names. There are many who are against homosexual persons, but we don’t hate them, we see them as in need of Jesus just as we ourselves have needed Jesus Christ to show us how to live.

There is evil in this land, and as a Christian man, I will fight evil with all my strength. I believe that the hatred I see in our land is evil, and is spawned by Satan to destroy our nation. Just as I look on socialism as an evil and vile type of violence against the people of this great nation. We fought the cold war to end the scourge of socialism in our world. We fought WW II to end the socialist nations of the Axis in Europe. Germany and Italy were both socialist nations, just as Russia was.

Today this evil is raising its ugly head in Russia, China and other places in our world. China is working to eradicate Christianity from their land, but making Churches take down crosses and rid themselves of Bibles, and worship the State. They are also imprisoning Muslims as well, in re-education camps.
So this is to be the future for those nations, and the Democrat Party is trying to make it the future for us in America. I see that if they win power in the House, Senate and the White House they will run roughshod over all of us.

Is God still blessing America?
June 20, 2019, 12:59 pm
Filed under: Culture, God | Tags: ,

We sing the song “God Bless America” and I wonder how many actually know what it is all about, or if they even believe there is a God who will bless our nation. I find myself thinking that the God who has blessed our nation for over 200 years, really cannot bless us any longer simply because God cannot abide sin. I would ask you to hear the words of the Apostle Paul as he writes to the Church in Rome.

Rom 1:16-17 NKJV  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.  (17)  For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.”

Powerful words from this wonderful Apostle to the Gentiles, that is us of course, you and I are the Gentiles, we are not Jewish therefore we are the Greeks or Gentiles. Paul wants all to be ‘saved’ from sin and so he writes to the Church in Rome and tells them what is to come as time progresses, he also tells them why God cannot bless a people who practice sin as a way of life. Here is what Paul indicates are the things that will destroy nations and even empires. Just as an aside history tells us that these are the things that destroyed the Greek civilization, and later the Roman.

“Rom 1:26-32 NKJV  For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.  (27)  Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.  (28)  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;  (29)  being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,  (30)  backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,  (31)  undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful;  (32)  who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”

This, of course, fits our society to a “T”, we can see these things all around us, we have the “Me too” movement showing the sexual immorality of our society, but we also have those who are haters and who will do anything they can to destroy rather than to build up. We have those who continue to kill human babies because they are an inconvenience, or they are not the right sex, or perhaps, they have a disease and so must be killed so they won’t suffer. We also have the violence of a place like Chicago with daily shootings and many deaths. Boasters, a wonderful word which notice, that it follows “proud” I see it in our politicians. There is of course much more to be seen and understood, there are those who are so proud of themselves that they will boast about their own greatness. One politician running for President has even stated that he was born for this.

God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of their wickedness, he sent Israel into exile a number of times in history, the last one was for almost 2000 years. Israel is now again in the land that God had promised to Abraham, this says that it is almost time for the gentile world and the so called Christian religion to end and a time more terrible than even what we are experiencing today. Yet these things have been prophesied for a few thousand years, especially in the book of Daniel. We who profess to follow Jesus Christ as Lord, need to be concerned, not for what is to come, rather we are to be concerned for those who do not know Jesus as Lord.

Can God still bless this nation? I believe that the answer to this question is NO, simply because of how far we have gone into sin. The House of Representatives has now taken out the need for people to speak the oath of truth when testifying, or when becoming confirmed in office, “so help me God”. This next year I do believe that the Democrat Party will take God out of their platform. Can God bless a nation that celebrates the death of babies? In New York State when the bill passed to allow abortion up to the moment of birth, the politicians gave a standing ovation to the Governor after he signed the bill into law.

I know that some who read my blog will not agree with the things I have said in this issue, I also know that I need to get back into the habit of writing more often. If you have a comment please do write it. I do try to look for comments when I can. If you want to know more about Jesus Christ, let me know, I will be glad to have a conversation about this as well. Have a blessed day all you who read my words.

Man and Wife – God’s plan
May 8, 2019, 10:15 am

Gen 2:22-24 NKJV  “Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.  (23)  And Adam said: “This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.”  (24)  Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”

Man, a created being, and woman also a created being, become man and wife and it then says that this is God’s plan for men and women. God in his infinite wisdom created all that there is, including people. He set things in motion, and, made it clear that men and women were sexual beings, that were meant to join together in the marital bond and through the sexual act, procreate. They were to be God’s proxies in that they would create more human beings through the act of coitus.

Since God set this in motion, we are not to change the set that God has ordained. The Bible talks a lot about sexual immorality, mostly about sex outside of the marriage bond, and more about men with women other than their wife. It is also important that we understand, that concubines, or, other relationships which are sexual in nature are not in God’s plan. In other words, marriage between a man and a woman, is the plan, and as it says the man shall set up housekeeping with his wife, and it is supposed to be a forever bond.

In our society today, we find all sorts of relationships, we also see trio’s as well as homosexual matchups, and of course polygamy. None of these are acceptable in God’s eyes. The sad part of this world in which we live today, is, that the Church is also supportive of many of these relationships. One that I am aware of is a Lesbian married to her wife, and, is a bishop of the church. Male with male and woman with woman, these are not acceptable in or out of the Church. If we profess to follow Jesus Christ as Lord, then it behooves us to act as He would act in these situations. We must point out that God is not pleased with those who are living in sin, Heterosexual or, homosexual. The scriptures just talk about heterosexual sin more than homosexual sin, but, it is clear in the scripture that neither sin is acceptable to God.

Jesus talks about the wide gate and the narrow gate: Mat 7:13-14 NKJV  “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.  (14)  Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” What is meant here is that walking down that road that is easy will lead you into Hell and you will spend eternity with Satan and his angels in the lake of fire. The narrow gate is the difficult path that leads to heaven, and, eternal life in heaven with Jesus. It is difficult, because, the world in which we live hates those who will follow Christ, and work out their salvation by walking in his footsteps. Those who do so will stumble and even fall, but, Jesus is there with you and will help you get back on that narrow path.

Your friends and relatives who do not know, do not have a relationship with Jesus, will work hard to discourage you. They will do all in their power to get you back on that wide highway that leads to destruction. How many people on that wide road are still searching for the million dollars, the mansion, the big car, and all the other things that are supposed to bring happiness? How many are actually happy with all the things in life? Most keep on wanting more, because, what they have is never enough to fill that void in their lives. The void can only be filled by the presence of God, never by material things.

If you are reading this and you do not know Jesus as Lord and Savior, please contact me, and let us have a conversation. Your eternity depends upon your acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. If you do not know him, or if you have rejected him, then your eternity will be spent in hell. If you do have a relationship with Him, then heaven is your destination.

The Hatred of the Left
March 21, 2019, 5:04 pm
Filed under: Culture, Happening Now, Politics | Tags: , , , ,

I just sent a note to Tomi Lahren at Fox Nation, she was attacked by a rapper who used extremely vile and sexist language to attack her. Her reply was excellent, and without the vile language used against her. I know her work and applaud her for standing up for herself against those who hate anything not of the progressive, communist left.

Now I also am not a happy camper when the President of the United States gets himself into foolish fights on twitter such as that we see against Mr. Kellyanne Conway, I have no idea why he has attacked Mr. Trump and until now our President has kept silent about it, but let it go Mr. President, this is not worth your time, and please stop attacking the McCain family, John McCain has died, I did not agree with him on many things, but it is time to let this one go too. It is history and for whatever it is you and he got cross-ways with each other, that too is history.

OK I got that off my chest, now let me talk a bit about this hatred that is now permeating our society. I know that our younger generation has no idea of the history of even the 20th Century so it behooves us to teach those who have been in so called Universities staffed by those who pump them full of propaganda instead of real facts. First – antifa they claim to be against Fascism, they are actually the fascists they claim to be against. You see in the 1930’s in Germany the National Socialists had thugs dressed in brown shirts who went around beating people with clubs and gangs would wreck stores that belongs to Jewish people. In Italy under Mussolini it was black shirts who did the dirty work. The results were the same. National Socialist party NAZI in Germany, Hitler won election and became the chancellor and then the Fuhrer of Germany. Millions were killed in that war 6 million of them were really Jewish persons, but also Gypsy’s, those who were unable to be helped in the insane asylums, the lame and blind and many Christians who would not toe the line and worship the State. Of course it also meant the death of millions of soldiers, as well as the destruction of much of Germany. In one raid over Dresden, enough bombs were dropped that the entire city burned to the ground.

Meanwhile another socialist became dictator of Russia, his name was Stalin, it is said that he caused the death of 60 million of his own people. No one will ever know for sure just how many he actually had killed, but it was definitely in the millions. Then another Socialist in China, Mao Tse Tung, also responsible for millions of deaths of his own people. No one will ever now how many millions it was but there it is. In North Korea we see the starvation under the dictators who have run that country, also Socialists. Let us look as well at the Castro brothers in Cuba, not millions, but assuredly thousands died under that Socialist Government. Talk to some of the folks in Florida who escaped from Cuba.

We hear AOC and others in our government praising Maduro in Venezuela and saying that our nation is wrong for helping to rid the nation of this cruel dictator. So let us look at our own nation today. We have socialists in our Government today, speaking about making our nation into a Socialist nightmare as Russia, China, Italy, and Cuba as well as the wasteland that is Venezuela today. These socialists hate just as much as Stalin, Maduro, Mao, and the Castro’s hated anyone that would oppose their dream of making their country into a Socialist heaven.

As you send your children to the government controlled schools, listen to what they are being taught, most of it is propaganda and they will begin to sound like AOC and Beto, and many others in our society today. I watched the attack on Chelsea Clinton for daring to come out even mildly against antisemitism. I thought she would be physically attacked. I do not agree with her on most issues, but she was attacked by people who were full of socialist propaganda and who really did not even know what they were talking about. That is hatred and you can see it and hear it as they spew their words almost screaming their words.

How about the groups who surrounded Republicans in Restaurants yelling at them and basically ruining the evening for all the patrons in those establishments. These were and are the modern day brown shirts who spew their hatred for all to see. The one that surprised me somewhat was the guy that attacked a man who was not pushing or shouting, but was asking people if they might be interested in the conservative point of view. He had his sign pulled away, and when he stood up, the brownshirt punched him in the face, knocking him to the ground. I say brownshirt because that is what they looked like when they attacked Jewish people before the Nazi’s took over Germany.

Hatred for those who oppose the socialist view of the world, is becoming a reality in our land. Please America wake up and realize that a time is coming when the right to disagree with someone can get you killed, and for those of you who follow God whether Christian or Muslim or Jew, or Hindu. In China they have made Christian Churches take down the 1st Commandment of the 10 commandments. “You shall have no other gods before me.”

Christians in China are now told that they will worship the state. In France churches across the country have been vandalized and even burned. In Nigeria people were trapped inside their church and it was burned down while they were inside it. In another town, 32 Christians were killed and their homes burned down. This too is hatred, and it is getting worse and worse every day in many places in our world. The latest evidence of this is in New Zealand, where a seriously disturbed man went into two Mosques and killed 50 people and wounded 100 of so more. I cannot imagine the grief that these folks feel, I pray for them as they deal with this horror. I hear the words coming from our politicians in Washington D. C. and I know that they have hatred in their hearts against Christians and Jews, and there is also hatred for others in this nation as well, it will also begin to rear its ugliness too.

Murder of the Innocent
January 24, 2019, 4:50 pm
Filed under: Culture

In the 10 commandments it says You Shall Not Kill. The word in the Hebrew is better translated Murder. We talk about the woman has a choice, yes she does, but, she made the choice when she allowed herself to decide to have sex. If you have unprotected sex, you take a chance on getting pregnant. If you get pregnant, your choice is to have that child, and then give it up for adoption, your choice cannot be to have an abortion, that becomes murder. You murder your baby because you thought about it and then made a conscious decision to kill that baby.

You become therefore a murderer, you did not actually kill that child but you allowed it to be killed therefor you are guilty of murder. In the Bible it talks about people actually using their children as sacrifices to the god Molech, God in his wrath passed judgement on the people.

The fault today is not just on people who have decided to murder their baby, but also on the church. The Church has been silent or has actually come out in favor of this heinous crime against humanity. We see politicians celebrating abortion, the State of New York has just passed a law to allow murder of babies up to the moment of birth. When it was passed the Democrats in the house cheered, don’t know of any Republicans who did.

These children did not ask to be in that womb, but they were, and where is their choice to live or die? They don’t have any choice, but we do, murder is not an answer. Jesus said suffer the little children to come to me, for of such is the kingdom of heaven. Childlike faith is what he was talking about, but he was also talking about how those children are innocent, they have not reached the age of accountability and so they are innocent. Think that the unborn child is not an innocent child, a person who should have the right to life not a death sentence, that is who that child is, and should have life.

I just watched a movie in regard to this issue. It is at http://babiesaremurderedhere.com/ if you want to know how important this is, please watch this film.
