POW/MIA

 Thinking of POW/MIA Week and POW/MIA Day recognition brought to my mind some of my past veterans activities as chaplain to military veterans.

I recall a veterans recognition activity I attend in Colorado Springs CO. where we lived in the later 1990's. I would have attended normally but upon arrival I was recognized as the chaplain serving at the state level for the Disabled American Veterans and was invited to set in the front row. 
 As I recall I was seated next to an ordinary gentleman in jeans and open collar shirt, he politely introduced himself as “Newt” and ask about me, my chaplains vest and the DAV cap.

IDOLATRY

Exo 20:4“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
5.Youshall not bow down to them or worship them;
I am afraid that society has never considered that denying "God" is a form of "hate."
I douhgt the "shooters" had ever heard that from any preacher or from any Christian friends or neighbors.
IDOLATRY can take many forms.
Pastor Timothy Keller wrote: "the idols that drive us are complex, multi layered and largely hidden from us.

This present evil

Exodus 20:1-6
 “I am the LORD your God,". . .
“You shall have no other gods before me."

A society that has not heard these words or heard yet not heeded is a society poorer in spirit.
We preachers, I am afraid, will be judged at the great white throne Rev.20:11-15. We all have been given the Word that is Salvation for our eternal soul.
God intended the Gospel for those with black hearts and evil in their minds. Along with us sinners saved by Grace.

Taking responsability

Mass murders

Ok, get buckled in, hold on to your hats.

Many, ye most won't want to hear this.
Have you ever heard someone say "this will hurt me, more than you"?

The Church has to be accountable to society for the shape it's in !
I fully expect there will be some that will say, take me off the devotion list.

More mass shootings


MORE SHOOTING !
I am aghast ! ! !
My deepest feeling about these shooters is they are COWERDS !
I am a combat veteran. These COWARDS are “wannabees”, they seldom have any idea what our real veterans have done to protect the United States of America and the Constitution of the Constitutional Republic and our citizens.

I am reminded of an old song (I was around when it was first released) It express's the heaviness of my heart and soul.

Where have all the flowers gone,
Long time passing,
Where have all the flowers gone,

Shootings in CA., TX., & OH.

Pray for America

The Apostle Paul:
*He cited the call to pray for leaders from 1 Timothy 2:

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. (v. 1–4)

When Paul urged making intersession “for rulers and those in authority” (v.

The BAD GUY


The "bad guy"



The "bad guy" isn't the other guy

Our enemy isn't the "rich guy" or the minority that "looks different" or "lives different"! It is not the left or right! Our enemies aren't the protestant or Catholic or even the "Muslim."

With shootings like the most recant night cub shutting, evil raises it's or “his” ugly head. I to try to make sense of all of it, the truth is we can't make sense of “evil”!

In an effort to make sense of it some blame God, in the case of the shootings others blame “guns” (If there wasn't any guns, there couldn't be killings by guns) Sadly before guns were invented mankind found even more heinous way to maim and kill one another.

If you take one step, God will take two


God will take Two

If you will take one step, God will take Two

In St. Luke 19 we see Zacchaeus just out of curiosity climbed a tree to see this man Jesus of Nazareth some call Christ , the Messiah or Savior. Let me point out the Scripture tells us that Zacchaeus was short (Vrs.3) so it took him some effort to get through the crowd and then some struggle to climb the tree. Jesus passing by looked up and said “I must stay at your house” knowing that Zacchaeus was only curios yet put out much effort Jesus made Himself part of his life.

Why do the heathen rage


“Why do the heathen rage”

1. Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
    The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed . . . Psalm 2 King James Version (KJV)
