He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

Lest we forget the real meaning of Christmas, it was God who was the gift giver, He gave His only Son, Jesus/Yeshua, the ULTIMATE gift, the gift that keeps on giving, the gift you give to the person who THINKS they have everything.

Don’t let another Christmas go by without receiving this ULTIMATE gift for yourself, eternal life through Jesus Christ/Yeshua HaMashiach! He alone can take away our sins and fill our lives with joy unspeakable and full of glory.

Merry Christmas to one and all. Ikester

It is amazing to hear preachers today dance around critical issues. The Bible refers to such preachers as ‘ear ticklers’, in other words, just telling people what they want to hear rather than telling them what they NEED to hear. There are still many preachers who are as bold as lions in speaking the truth. Unfortunately, there are also those who choose to condemn and beat over the head with truth so that it turns them away from the truth. There has to be a middle ground where preachers stop preaching the so-called ‘feel good’ sermons and begin to preach and teach the whole Bible once again.

Today, whole denominations have caved in to political correctness rather than biblical correctness. The Bible is truly a book filled with the love of God and describes the God of love clearly. But like loving parents, there are times when He has to speak of correction and ultimately punishment for deliberate disobedience. When parents refuse to spank a child who is deliberately being a brat they ultimately destroy their own child. They grow up thinking they can do what they please and our prisons are filled with such children today.
The most critical issues in society today are being largely ignored in churches today. They refuse to speak on homosexuality, abortion, adultery, judgment, accountability for our sinful behaviors and many other such issues. The word Hell has been removed from preachers’ vocabulary because it might OFFEND SOMEONE! This is much like a doctor refusing to tell his or her patient that they have a deadly disease that will kill them if not dealt with soon. This is malpractice in the medical field and I call it spiritual malpractice in the spiritual field. Abortion is the act of murdering an unborn baby and homosexuality is the most self-destructive behavior that can be done. The lifespan of homosexuals is drastically less than a heterosexual person who lives a moral lifestyle. All too often, when we speak of homosexuality as a sin, we fail to include heterosexual sin, such as shaking up with someone you are not married to or the one night stand situation. Sexual sin takes many forms, including masturbation. In order to do this you have to have a mental image of someone in a sexual situation, whether video, internet or mental picture. The Bible says if you have sex with someone in your mind it is the same thing as having sex with them physically since it is a mental thing anyway. Folks who are heterosexual and get married and remain sexually loyal to them, have NO S.T.D.s! Folks who have homosexual leanings need to get help from counselors who will tell them the truth as to how to get out of this situation. Folks like Exodus International, Focus on the Family and other competent organizations have led thousands of people out of the homosexual lifestyle to freedom and happiness.

My goal in writing this article is to express my love for all people, no matter what sin they are addicted to presently. Jesus/Yeshua came to earth to free mankind from their sins because He, as the creator, knew the devastating effects of sexual sin, such as AIDS and other S.T.D.s that today kill multiplied thousands of people each year. I saw an AIDS ward in Uganda, Africa and it stuck with me for months afterward. They were like the folks in Nazi death camps and each one had TB on top of this since their immune systems were shot. I truly love all human beings and care deeply that they live happy and healthy lives.

It is amazing to see how even Bible translators have caved into PC today. Zondervan has published a gender neutral Bible, which is an abomination to accurate biblical translation. They did this simply to appease the feminist movement and made God an IT, essentially. This is shameful and adds up to nothing more than a desire to make money by perverting the Word of God.
Preachers today need to remember what was said of Jesus/Yeshua.

“… for He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as their scribes.” Matthew 7:29

Jesus/Yeshua amazed people because He did not mince words with them. He knew nothing of what is today called Seeker Sensitive messages, for He spoke the gentle messages and the ones that knocked them off their feet with bold truth. Preachers today need this same loving boldness. The Bible tells us “to speak the truth in love.” Ephesians 4:15 This is always the best policy in any part of life. I have a great love for preachers since I was one for thirty years of my life. I became physically disabled or I would still be a pastor today.

My goal is to always speak the truth in love and this is what I have done in this article. The written page is hard way to communicate love since you cannot know the person writing it. I hope that the tone of my heart has come through and I want you to know the loving God that I met just before Christmas in 1974. He stands ready to forgive you of all your past sins and to adopt you into His forever family. He loves all people and desires that they all come to Him. Take the time today to read the Gospel of John or the book of Romans to get the feel of His great love for you. If you have questions or want to further communicate, feel free to reply to this blog.

RU-486 is a chemical abortion, performed up to 49 days gestation. It requires at least three (3) visits to the doctor’s office or clinic.

The first visit, the woman is given a physical , exam and is administered mifepristone. RU0486 blocks the action of progesterone, the natural hormone vital to maintaining the lining of the uterus. The embryo STARVES as the nutrient lining disintegrates.

At the second visit, 36-48 hours later, the woman is given a dose of artificial prostaglandins, usually misoprostol, which initiate uterine contractions and usually cause the embryo (BABY) to be expelled from the uterus. Most women abort during the four hour waiting period, but about 30% abort as many as five (5) days later — at home, at work etc.

The third visit, about two weeks later, determines whether the abortion has occurred or if a surgical abortion is necessary to complete the procedure (ie. Kill the Baby).

Source: Pro-Life Action League

According to an article by Dr. J. C. Willke, fifteen (15) women have died so far from taking RU-486. It is A Dangerous Abortion Drug and all women considering using it should check out the consequences before taking it.

Way to go, Nebraska! You are a pace setter for the other 49 states (not 57 as some think). They passed the PAIN-CAPABLE UNBORN CHILD PROTECTION ACT which prohibits abortions after 20 weeks, with very narrow exceptions. It took effect October 15, 2010 and will be the rule of thumb for abortions around the nation before long. 3:11:09 PM:

Did you know that 1.3 MILLION babies a year die in America? The Holocaust took 6,000,000 Jewish lives plus many others as well. Since abortion became legal American abortion butchers have murdered fifty million, 46,000,000 innocent babies, and 42,000,000 is the number of abortions worldwide YEARLY. That makes 115,000 murdered babies A DAY! The USA kills 3,700 A DAY! These figures come from the Guttmacher Institute.

When will we wise up and stop murdering the most innocent citizens of this nation? It is a huge money machine for those who push this brutal murder procedure.

Way to go, Nebraska, and may the other 49 join you very soon and may this make its way, now, to the Supreme Court and see it all overturned. Abortion has become just another means of birth control for a sex-crazed society. Sex without responsibility and a heartless industry that will kill your baby for a few hundred bucks and then sell the body parts of the baby to universities for experimentation and study.

What a sick society we live in now! “Thou shalt not commit homicide” seems to be ignored with our most innocent members.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word WAS GOD. He was in the beginning with God. ALL THINGS came into being through Him, and apart from Him NOTHING came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overpower it.” John 1:1-5

There are many other similar texts if you care to examine them. For those who dare to deny Jesus/Y’shua His rightful status as Almighty God, I truly feel sorry for you as another text tells you what this does concerning your eternal status.

“Whoever denies the he Son does not have the Father; the one who confesses the Son has the Father also.” 1 John 2:23

It is dangerous to play around with Scripture to try and prove a false position created by a false teacher in the past. If you read the Bible by itself, without all the books written by mankind, you will find that the message is crystal clear and needs no ‘fixing’ to help it out.

As we come into the season of celebration of the birth of this Savior, Jesus Christ/Y’shua HaMashiach, wouldn’t it be awesome this year to actually celebrate His birthday by giving HIM something and not focusing so much on giving and getting for ourselves? What do you give to God since He has everything? The Bible is clear again on this point. All He wants for His birthday gift is YOUR HEART! If He gets your HEART then He gets all of you to be His adopted son or daughter. Take the time to read the Gospel of John and you will see how precious you are to Him and the ultimate sacrifice He made to set you free from your sin and guilt. He loves you more than you can ever imagine. I gave my life to Him just before Christmas in 1974 and that was the greatest Christmas I ever had. I have had thirty-five years of experiencing His love, forgiveness, guidance and friendship and I literally would not trade this for the entire world. Don’t let another Christmas go by and miss the true meaning of this holiday.

“For God so loved the world, that HE GAVE His only begotten Son, that WHOEVER believes in Him shall NOT perish, but have ETERNAL LIFE.” John 3:16

May you have the greatest Christmas ever!
