110,197,000 Venereal Infections in America
The CDC has published a study of Americans and sexually transmitted diseases. The results are shocking and very sad. During the week where we are discussing homosexual marriage and the sexual revolution, comes the news that over 100 million STD’s are in the United States. This amounts to 1 in every 3 Americans.
Source: News One

How tragic it is to see how truth works its way out in the human population. I have heard it said that man does not break the Ten Commandments but are broken BY them. This is so true. If any of you are flirting with or outright playing with sin, be warned. You will be broken by it unless your repent and forsake it.

“Flee immorality. Every sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man (or woman) sins against his (her) own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body ”                                                      1 Corinthians 6:18-20 NASB

By the way, this sexual revolution has been using abortion to deal with immorality since 1973, while over 53,000,000 innocent babies have been brutally murdered in the process. Their blood cries out to God as did Able’s when his brother Cain killed him. America will not experience God’s blessing until there is repentance for this and the blood of the innocents being spilled ends.

“You shall not pity him, but you shall purge the blood of the innocent from Israel, that it may go well with you.”                                                                                                           Deuteronomy 19:13 NASB

Let us not grieve God by our behavior, but GLORIFY Him by all that we say and do.

HE IS RISEN! HE IS RISEN INDEED. Happy resurrection day to all my precious friends and family.

Right From The Horse’s Mouth: Margaret Sanger
Posted on March 26, 2013 by ikester018
Margaret Sanger

Woman and the New Race, ch. 6: “The Wickedness of Creating Large Families.” Here, Sanger argues that, because the conditions of large families tend to involve poverty and illness, it is better for everyone involved if a child’s life is snuffed out before he or she has a chance to pose difficulties to its family.

[We should] apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.

“Plan for Peace” from Birth Control Review (April 1932, pp. 107-108)

Article 1. The purpose of the American Baby Code shall be to provide for a better distribution of babies… and to protect society against the propagation and increase of the unfit.
Article 4. No woman shall have the legal right to bear a child, and no man shall have the right to become a father, without a permit…
Article 6. No permit for parenthood shall be valid for more than one birth.

“America Needs a Code for Babies,” 27 Mar 1934

Give dysgenic groups [people with “bad genes”] in our population their choice of segregation or [compulsory] sterilization.

April 1932 Birth Control Review, pg. 108

Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.

Woman, Morality, and Birth Control. New York: New York Publishing Company, 1922. Page 12.

We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.

Margaret Sanger’s December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts. Also described in Linda Gordon’s Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America. New York: Grossman Publishers, 1976.

A woman’s duty: To look the whole world in the face with a go-to-hell look in the eyes… to speak and act in defiance of convention.

The Woman Rebel, Volume I, Number 1

[The most penetrating thinkers] are coming to see that a qualitative factor as opposed to a quantitative one is of primary importance in dealing with the great masses of humanity.

Pivot of Civilization, 1922. Here, Margaret Sanger speaks on her eugenic philosophy – that only the types of “quality” people she and her peers viewed as worthy of life should be allowed to live.

Such parents swell the pathetic ranks of the unemployed. Feeble-mindedness perpetuates itself from the ranks of those who are blandly indifferent to their racial responsibilities. And it is largely this type of humanity we are now drawing upon to populate our world for the generations to come. In this orgy of multiplying and replenishing the earth, this type is pari passu multiplying and perpetuating those direst evils in which we must, if civilization is to survive, extirpate by the very roots.

The Need for Birth Control in America (quoted by Angela Franks.)

Women of the working class, especially wage workers, should not have more than two children at most. The average working man can support no more and and the average working woman can take care of no more in decent fashion.

“Family Limitation,” eighth edition revised, 1918

Did you know that the federal government recently authorized 1.5 million dollars to study why 75% of lesbians are over weight, while their male counterparts are not? Also, after this valuable research was authorized, they authorized 2.5 million dollars to study why so many lesbians are heavy drinkers. There is also a pediatrician group that is now trying to approve homosexual marriage by saying that the children are healthier if their parents are allowed to marry. GIVE ME A BREAK! This evidence was taken from research on heterosexual married couples and their children. A huge report from a major university recently listed all the damaging habits and addictions that children raised in a homosexual home are plagued with. These kids should never have been adopted into these homes in the first place. I am so grieved by all these so-called experts who are trying to make sexual perversion acceptable while condemning homosexuals to a life of pain and early death. These are fellow human beings and need our help. We MUST speak the truth IN LOVE to them. The truth does set us free! I have had such an experience of speaking to a man in this lifestyle and being loving enough and honest enough to tell him the truth. He said to me, “You know, I have always doubted that I could live like this and be a Christian.” He wanted to be told the honest truth and he received it without feeling judged or condemned. This was a loving thing to do.

Well folks, the Bible could have saved the taxpayers 3.5 million dollars since it has a simple answer. When people deliberately choose to live outside the will of God their lives are in a total state of confusion and their emptiness is horrific. People try everything and make every excuse to try to find fulfillment and happiness. This is an impossible state. For all who live in sexual immorality, the search for fulfillment is impossible until you come to the place where you confess your deliberate choice to live in rebellion, repent of your sinful lifestyle and forsake the sin that is destroying your life. Sin brings forth death. Life is snuffed out by layers of rebellion against God. He longs to forgive all who live in sin. He loves all humans and longs to bring them into a life of fulfillment and joy.

One of the great tragedies of our day is whole denominations that have caved into the lie that homosexuals and heterosexuals who live in sin can be Christians and find happiness and fulfillment. If you, as a heterosexual, are living with someone who you are not married to, i.e. shacking up, then you are living in open rebellion and the Bible says,

“Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness. (ie a disregard for the Law of God) You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin. No one who abides in Him sins; (Literally, makes a practice of sin) no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him. Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother.” 1 John 3:4-10 NASB

It is also atrocious to hear the profanity of many professing Christians today. Even too many so-called Christian college/university professors and their students use it in their classrooms. The Bible says that God hates the profane tongue.

“The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverted mouth I hate.” Proverbs 8:13 NASB

“The mouth of the righteous flows with wisdom, but the perverted tongue will be cut out. The lips of the righteous brings forth what is acceptable, but the mouth of the wicked what is perverted.” Proverbs 10:31-32 NASB

“But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints; and there must be NO filthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.” Ephesians 5:3-4 NASB

“If anyone thinks himself to be religious, and yet does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this man’s religion is worthless.” James 1:26 NASB

I think that says it pretty clearly, doesn’t it?

What will it take for our so-called experts to finally tell people the TRUTH. The TRUTH sets people free. LIES enslave people and ultimately lead them into the Lake of Fire when they die. This grieves the heart of God and ALL true Christians as well.

Are you a Christian who has believed this lie? If so, you MUST get into the Word of God and read the truth for yourself. Then repent and forsake any degrading habit or lifestyle that you are now living.

“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such WERE some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 NASB

PLEASE NOTE: This includes a lot more than just homosexuals so don’t feel that I am picking on homosexuals alone. These are not my words but God’ word, I am merely His servant.

I love you all!

Does it take a 2×4 up the side of our heads to make us realize what is being done to our nation by this radical government? Are Americans so dumb or uncaring to see what Socialism has done to Europe and other parts of the world? Everything that NORMAL people hold dear is in the cross hairs of this government and even most state governments. From gun control, or should I say, gun elimination altogether, to abortions provided by tax dollars, to special rights for homosexuals, to redistribution of wealth to those who refuse to work for a living such as most on S.S.I., to the refusal to allow oil exploration and drilling here but financing it in other places, to entitlements, which Social Security was NEVER meant to be one, to congress robbing the SS fund by their stupid IOUs that will NEVER be paid back, to government bloat and over compensation compared to public sector jobs, the stripping of our military’s ability to defend us in case of an attack from China, North Korea or Islam, to the executive branch manipulating the trial of the Fort Hood terrorist attack and I could go on and on. It is interesting that the Fort Hoot murders were done as Hassan was chanting Allah Akbar, yet it was not terrorism.

We are like the proverbial frog in the kettle and we are about to be cooked by those who take an oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. As a veteran, this makes me nauseated. Just think of the multiplied thousands who gave their lives to defend our land and now will we allow them to have died in vain? What can be done to stop this runaway train as we head off a cliff and into disaster? Even those who claim to be Conservatives are mostly caving in to the agenda of destruction. Only a few congress people are standing up in the face of media attacks and character assassination.

MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON OUR NATION. I know that He cares about this issue but He often waits for His people to rise up and take action to do it with His help. The Tea Party failed miserably leading up to the last election, not ONE rally that I know of. They send out pleas for money regularly but what are they actually doing to turn the tide? How pathetic!

I guess the old saying is appropriate now.

If your outgo exceeds your intake, your upkeep will be your downfall. That describes right where we are now.

“Scientists Say Microbes Were Possible On Mars”

Headlines in The Wall Street Journal, a conservative newspaper. I write this as I wonder what the New York Times etc. printed on this item.

On items such as this one, we need to take the time to read the whole article. One of the Mars rovers drilled a hole in what looks like a lake bed. The article tells us that they found nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, and carbon, which are key items suitable for life to exist.

“We have found a habitable environment which is so benign and supportive of life that if you had been on the planet, the water would have been pure enough to drink,” said planetary scientist John Grotzinger, at the California Institute of Technology. He went on to say, “This is an environment that a microbe could have lived in and even prospered in.” The article says that if the claim is true this is the first place beyond Earth known to have been favorable to life. However, if you read on to the end of the article you find out what REALITY is on this topic. It says, “Even so, there is still no evidence that life ever existed on Mars, the scientist said. The planet today is cold, arid and lifeless, bathed in sterilizing radiation.”

One other thing about space travel. Man has been to the Moon a number of times and now he is talking about going to Mars sometime soon. There is a bit of difference in distance here. The Moon is on average 240,000 miles away, while Mars is an average of 110,000,000 miles away and takes our spacecraft eighteen (18) months to get there. A group out of Europe is planning on sending humans there to establish a settlement. The only drawback is that it is a ONE WAY trip. They have no hope of returning to Earth. Any volunteers out there?

It never ceases to amaze me at what the atheistic scientific community is willing to force on a gullible public in hopes of planting in their minds the IDEA that there is life on other planets. As for me, until I am introduced to an alien from outer space, I will hold to what the Bible tells us that God created life on Earth alone. By the way, the article opens by telling us that this could have taken place THREE BILLION years ago. I wonder how they came up with this date? They are usually just pulled out of the air.

Well, just some Saturday musings of an old man. As far as I am concerned, I will wait till I see God to find out these deep questions.

“12 Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands; 13 and in the middle of the lampstands I saw one like a son of man, clothed in a robe reaching to the feet, and girded across His chest with a golden sash. 14 His head and His hair were white like white wool, like snow; and His eyes were like a flame of fire. 15 His feet were like burnished bronze, when it has been made to glow in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters. 16 In His right hand He held seven stars, and out of His mouth came a sharp two-edged sword; and His face was like the sun shining in its strength.

17 When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man. And He placed His right hand on me, saying, “Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, 18 and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.” (highlighted for emphasis) Revelation 1:12-18 NASB

Reminds us of Matthew 17:1-8

“Six days later Jesus took with Him Peter and James and John his brother, and led them up on a high mountain by themselves. 2 And He was transfigured before them; and His face shone like the sun, and His garments became as white as light. 3 And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him. 4 Peter said to Jesus, ‘Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, I will make three tabernacles here, one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.’ 5 While he was still speaking, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and behold, a voice out of the cloud said, ‘This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased; listen to Him!’ 6 When the disciples heard this, they fell face down to the ground and were terrified. 7 And Jesus came to them and touched them and said,’Get up, and do not be afraid.’ 8 And lifting up their eyes, they saw no one except Jesus Himself alone.” (highlighted for emphasis)

What our LORD did on the mount of transfiguration was to give His disciples a glimpse of the glory that He ever had with the Father in Heaven. Can you begin to imagine the awesome glory that our eyes will behold when we leave this world and arrive in His presence? My wife’s godly uncle just graduated last night. He simple slumped over in his chair and breathed his last in this life and took his first breath of that rarefied air in his eternal life in the presence of our LORD and Savior. The older I get the more I long for my eternal home. I remember when I was interim pastor in Norco, California that I turned thirty and one of the ladies made me a birthday cake and wrote on it, “Homesick For Heaven.” That cake stands out in my memory as one of my all time favorites as it reflected my often spoken desire to be in heaven with Him. By the way, the cake baker has long been in His presence ahead of me.

The popular Christian song “I Can Only Imagine,” says so much of what it will be like the first time and every time our eternal eyes will behold my glorified LORD. We truly can only imagine what it will be like.

Let your heart meditate on these words today and let them draw you nearer to Him on this Tuesday. Love you!!!!

Olive Branch Commission by Frank Cobie June 2002

Give us a watchword for the hour,
A thrilling word, a word of power,
A battle cry, a flaming breath,
A call to conquest or to death;
A word to rouse the church from rest,
To heed the Master’s high request.
The call is given, ye hosts arise,
The watchword is EVANGELIZE!!
To fallen men, a dying race,
Make known the gift of gospel grace.
The world that now in darkness lies,
O Church of Christ Evangelize!!

My dear brother and friend, now with the LORD, speaks to the Church today. Miss you Frank.

“1What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among you? Is not the source your pleasures that wage war in your members? 2 You lust and do not have; so you commit murder. You are envious and cannot obtain; so you fight and quarrel. You do not have because you do not ask. 3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures.4 You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. 5 Or do you think that the Scripture speaks to no purpose: ‘He jealously desires the Spirit which He has made to dwell in us’? 6 But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, ‘God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.’ 7 Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.9 Be miserable and mourn and weep; let your laughter be turned into mourning and your joy to gloom.10 Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.” James 4:1-10 NASB
“Therefore, to the one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin.” James 4:17 NASB

NOTE: I highlighted the most critical words, ie, the words that we are commanded to obey.

Friendship with the world is a huge problem in modern America. Far too many pastors are choosing to avoid texts like this one because it might OFFEND someone. Offense is the biblical idea of conviction of our sins. If we feel no conviction then, as Hebrews says, indicates that we are not children of God or we are ignorant of what God wants of us. God chastens those who are His children because He loves us and wants the best for us. He is far more concerned about our conviction than our comfort. Modern Christianity is reduced to GOING TO A WORSHIP SERVICE once a week and thinking that that is all God wants from us. The great failure of feel good preaching is that the body of Christ is IGNORANT about what God requires of His people. Ignorance is fixable by clear teaching of the Word of God by pastors, teachers, missionaries and all of His children charged with this task. You see, we MUST be about worship, evangelism and discipleship every day of our lives. You may say, “But how do I do these things?” Your question may reflect the lack of biblical instruction on the part of your pastor/teacher. It also may reflect your lack of daily reading and study of His Word also. The whole of Scripture is required to bring believers into maturity and effective ministry. From Genesis to Revelation is the field of instruction from the pulpits and lecterns around the world. Christian television is vastly wasting time and money when they neglect this critical issue. Just think of all the good that could result if TBN, CBN and others would get serious about teaching the TRUTH daily to a listening world. Far too much air time is used to manipulate the listeners to send in their money. God never meant for preachers to be rich, as so many are today. The words of Jesus echo this over and over. Just think of the wealth of the Vatican in Rome. How could this wealth be better used to spread the Word of God?
Well, enough of my heart cry today. I am limited mostly to my keyboard to express my most passionate feelings. I write these words, like Paul and others, from a heart of love. I too want God’s best for His children and this comes when each one uses their gifts to walk in obedience to Him. You are valuable to the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom of God suffers loss when His children fail to use their gifts and callings and not be equipped for His work. Every believer is needed to fulfill His plan for planet earth today.

“32 And what more shall I say? For time will fail me if I tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets, 33 who by faith conquered kingdoms, performed acts of righteousness, obtained promises, shut the mouths of lions, 34 quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, from weakness were made strong, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight. 35 Women received back their dead by resurrection; and others were tortured, not accepting their release, so that they might obtain a better resurrection; 36 and others experienced mockings and scourgings, yes, also chains and imprisonment. 37 They were stoned, they were sawn in two, they were tempted, they were put to death with the sword; they went about in sheepskins, in goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, ill-treated 38 (men of whom the world was not worthy), wandering in deserts and mountains and caves and holes in the ground.

39 And all these, having gained approval through their faith, did not receive what was promised, 40 because God had provided something better for us, so that apart from us they would not be made perfect.” Hebrews 11:32-40 NASB

NOTE: the word RESURRECTION is the Greek word anastasis and should be more accurately translated “raised up” since true resurrection brings the dead to life never to return to death. Jesus is the ONLY one that was resurrected in the true meaning of the word. He is the FIRST FRUITS of those who slept in the grave. This is just a side note.

“We must work the works of Him who sent Me as long as it is day; night is coming when no one can work.” John 9:4 NASB

One question for all able-bodied believers. What are you doing for the Kingdom of God NOW? Note the great accomplishments of those named in the Hebrews passage. They were not setting out to be mentioned in Scripture, they were merely doing for God what was EXPECTED of a SERVANT. Paul laid this idea on Timothy in the following text.

“No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier.” 2 Timothy 2:4 NASB

You see, it is my opinion that far too many believers today are more earthly minded and pay little attention to their daily spiritual disciplines of Bible reading and prayer. Far too few take the time or make the effort to witness to lost people. If you take the number of people who attend a particular church and then divide this number by the number of baptisms in a year, you will see how many it takes to win just one person to Christ. We must work while it is still day for the night IS coming and faster than we realize. There are nations today that forbid witnessing to people and even Israel forbids people from sharing Christ with anyone under eighteen (18) years of age. Can you imagine how difficult this makes evangelism in that nation? How long will it be before this is the case in the USA? Did you know that all Christian films with a gospel message have to be rated PG because the folks in Hollywood say that no child should be exposed to THAT STUFF? The signs of the times are all around us so let’s work while it is still day for the night is coming.

Love you!

“4 I thank my God always, making mention of you in my prayers, 5 because I hear of your love and of the faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints; 6 and I pray that the fellowship of your faith may become effective through the knowledge of every good thing which is in you for Christ’s sake. 7 For I have come to have much joy and comfort in your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you, brother.” Philemon 4-7 NASB

As the old calendar rolls around again and another year is added to my account, I saw in my daily Bible reading a passage that says it all about how I feel about my 800+ friends on Facebook. I do thank God always for all the wonderful people that I have gotten to know in my 38+ years of knowing the LORD and serving His people. I, like Paul, am thrilled as I read the accounts of how so many of you are doing in your walk with God. I too have MUCH joy and comfort in your love because the hearts of the saints are encouraged by your lives and service to Him and His kingdom.

SO, with all my heart, THANK YOU for being my friends and eternal family. You have truly become very dear to me.
