The War To End All Wars
Throughout recorded history, this world has endured a nearly never-ending state of one war following another war. Death and destruction growing greater and larger with each event, from the two World Wars, the Korean and Vietnam wars, the Gulf war, and the continuing war throughout the middle east and Afghanistan.
It would seem that the world is looking for and expecting two things. There is a searching and longing for some great world leader who will promise peace and have a plan to bring it about. And there is an expectation that due to all escalating problems, that there will be a great war that will destroy the entire planet.
Interestingly, those two expectations are not too far off from what the Bible tells us will actually take place. There will be a world leader come to the forefront – perhaps very soon. He will be very persuasive, and demonstrate great leadership skills, as well as a plan for peace that nearly everyone will herald as the answer the world has been waiting for. However, this leader will not be the answer – he will in reality be satan’s emissary to this world, and will bring about the most horrible conditions this planet has ever known.
How will things end up for that leader? With a war to end all wars. While many today think that somehow a great war will involve men fighting against men, the Bible paints a different picture of what that battle is all about. It involves that deceptive world leader, and his attempt to organize the world’s armies at the Megiddo Valley, to do battle with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
What is going to take place? That is the topic of our message, as we continue our “Focus on the Future” series this Sunday. Join us, as we look at “Christ’s Coming – the Battle of Armageddon.” Don’t miss it!
When Christians show genuine interest in others, people sometimes begin to believe that God might actually like them. The great part is that being unusually interested in people doesn’t require special expertise or hours of training. In fact, it involves nothing more than living your normal life and simply beginning to practice the art of noticing those around you.
Jesus was a master at showing interest in others. As Brian McLaren likes to say, “Jesus was long on conversations and short on sermons.” Jesus’s most common on-ramp to people’s hearts was the practice of asking great questions.
o Who do people say I am?
o Where will we find food for these people?
o What do you want me to do for you?
o Have you had breakfast?
o Do you believe I will heal you?
When it comes to connecting with people using our ears is much more effective than giving a speech. Jesus teaches us that when it comes to getting through to others, listening is not only the best first step; it’s the best second and third step as well.

President Obama’s Bible quote draws scrutiny
by Jim Ray
Attending the annual National Prayer Breakfast, you would think, would be an enjoyable experience for any president, and certainly an event that wouldn’t generate much activity on the political Richter Scale. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth.
President Nixon attended the 1973 Breakfast only to get an earful from Senator Mark Hatfield, who in his prayer characterized the Vietnam War as “the sin that scarred our national soul.” That prayer purportedly earned Hatfield a place on Nixon’s enemies list.
In 1994, President Clinton sat uncomfortably at the dais as Mother Teresa delivered a moving plea to halt abortion. “Please don’t kill the child,” she said. “I want the child. Please give me the child. I am willing to accept any child who would be aborted.”
And at this year’s event, President Obama created a stir by quoting Scripture in support of his plan to raise taxes on the wealthy. But did the president, as some have charged, misappropriate the words of Jesus to make a dubious political point?
President Obama has long said that America’s highest earners should be paying more taxes to help those who are less fortunate. On this occasion, he added a spiritual dimension to the argument. “If I’m willing to give something up as somebody who’s been extraordinarily blessed,” he told the crowd of over 3,000, “and give up some of the tax breaks I enjoy, I actually think that’s going to make economic sense. But for me as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesus’ teaching that ‘for unto whom much is given, much shall be required’.”
Not everyone agreed. Some observers essentially accused the president of serving up a breakfast of scrambled Scripture in his citation of Luke 12. “I’m no theologian,” columnist Charles Krauthammer responded, “but I’m fairly certain that neither Jesus nor his rabbinic forebears, when speaking of giving, meant some obligation to the state. You tithe the priest, not the tax man.”
Many people, President Obama among them, believe that the best way to help the poor is by lengthening the reach of government programs. That, of course, requires higher taxes. Others say it is the role of individuals and the private sector. That requires greater generosity in the form of voluntary giving.
But what exactly did Jesus mean when He spoke of requiring more from those who have more? It’s very difficult to support an argument that He was advocating an expansion of public welfare. In the time of Jesus’ earthly ministry, the government had no role whatsoever in helping the poor, and the parable in Luke refers to a “faithful and wise” household manager. It seems clear that the Lord was reminding His followers that they were personally responsible for what was entrusted to them and that they would be held accountable by God for their generosity, or lack thereof. That stands starkly in contrast to government taxation, which is mandatory and involves no personal decision-making, other than the decision to follow the law…if for no other reason to avoid a stint in prison for tax evasion.
President Obama’s intentions are not in question – he has a genuine desire to help those in need. But the issue was crystalized by the author Eric Metaxas, who also spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast. It is not a question of whether to help the poor, he said, but how to help the poor…and helping the poor is a distinctly biblical idea.
In truth, neither individuals nor government are doing it well. Federal programs are, on the whole, notoriously wasteful and inefficient. Moreover, it is virtually indisputable that in many cases government programs prolong, rather than prevent, poverty. At the same time, however, various surveys have found that Christians in America don’t give much to their churches or other charities, especially compared to past generations.
What can you do? Whatever your view of the president’s application of Luke 12, you can count on the fact that the Lord will hold you personally responsible for what you have done to “love your neighbor as yourself.” Ask God to show you ways – and give you divine opportunities – to help those around you.
If every Christian does that, the impetus for government to do the job of God’s people will quickly vanish.

Where I Used To Go To Church
by Alan Smith
The story is told of a man who was stranded on a deserted Pacific island for years. Finally one day a boat comes sailing into view, and the man frantically waves and draws the skipper’s attention. The boat comes near the island and the sailor gets out and greets the stranded man.
After a while the sailor asks, “What are those three huts you have here?”
“Well, that’s my house there.”
“What’s that next hut?” asks the sailor.
“I built that hut to be my church.”
“What about the other hut?”
“Oh, that’s where I used to go to church.”
(By the way, please don’t write to remind me that the church is a group of people, not a building — I’m aware of that, but I think there’s another lesson to learn here). I understand that there are some legitimate reasons for “changing churches,” but there are also some Christians who change congregations every couple of years simply because they have trouble getting along with other folks. Someone at church said something that made them mad, or one of the songleaders didn’t pick out songs they liked, or the elders decided to change the time of services, etc. etc. The reasons go on and on, and you can just about mark on the calendar when they’ll leave to go to the next church. It makes you wonder if they would be happy in a church by themselves. Perhaps, like the man in the story above, they would move somewhere else after a while just out of habit.
Each of the New Testament epistles is filled with instructions on how to get along with others in the church (and there are no instructions or recommendations for Christians to “change churches” no matter how serious the problems!). Running away is always easier than reconciling with others, but our God is a God of reconciliation who has called us not only to reconcile with Him, but to be “ministers of reconciliation” who seek to bring about the unity that God desires in His body.
“Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another… Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion… If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.” (Rom. 12:9-10,15-16,18)

What You Will Be
As I gazed up at the mountains, I was awed by their majesty;
I bowed my head and asked myself, “Why should He care for me?
I am not great like the mountains that tower so high above,
What is there about me that God can find to love?”
“Father, I am not strong like the wind that makes your tall trees sway,
I cannot sing sweetly like your birds; will you love me anyway?
But most of all, I am simply me, and often have cause to fear,
In spite of all my weaknesses, do you promise to be near?”
With eyes closed tight against my tears, I wished He could hear me pray.
Then I felt His Spirit tell me, “Child, look up, I have something to say.
“You are simply you, the spirit I love, a part of my great plan.
I put you here to learn of life and to return to me again.”
“You are more beautiful to me than the loveliest mountain I made,
And your strength exceeds that of the wind’s, so do not be afraid.
I love you not for what you are, but for what I know you will be.
I am always beside you watching you grow, you are very special to me.”
A smile touched my lips – I knew it was true, my Father had always been there
Giving me comfort and blessings and love and my own special talents to share.
So I do my best to make Him proud. I am not afraid, for you see,
He loves me not for what I am, but for what He knows I will be.
No, Ma’am, I Won’t Ever
I saw him in the church building for the first time on Wednesday. He was in his mid-70′s, with thinning silver hair and a neat brown suit. Many times in the past I had invited him to come. Several other Christian friends had talked to him about the Lord and had tried to share the good news with him.
He was a well-respected, honest man with so many characteristics a Christian should have, but he had never put on Christ, nor entered the doors of the church.
“Have you ever been to a church service in your life?” I had asked him a few years ago. We had just finished a pleasant day of visiting and talking.
He hesitated. Then with a bitter smile he told me of his childhood experience some fifty years ago. He was one of many children in a large impoverished family. His parents had struggled to provide food, with little left for housing and clothing. When he was about ten, some neighbors invited him to worship with them.
The Sunday School class had been very exciting! He had never heard such songs and stories before!
He had never heard anyone read from the Bible! After class was over, the teacher took him aside and said, “Son, please don’t come again dressed as you are now. We want to look our best when we come into God’s house.”
He stood in his ragged, unpatched overalls. Then looking at his dirty bare feet, he answered softly, “No, ma’am, I won’t ever.”
“And I never did,” he said, abruptly ending our conversation.
There must have been other factors to have hardened him so, but this experience formed a significant part of the bitterness in his heart.
I’m sure that Sunday School teacher meant well. But did she really understand the love of Christ? Had she studied and accepted the teachings found in the second chapter of James?
What if she had put her arms around the dirty, ragged little boy and said, “Son, I am so glad you are here, and I hope you will come every chance you get to hear more about Jesus.”
I reflected on the awesome responsibility a teacher or pastor or a parent has to welcome little ones in His name. How far reaching her influence was!
I prayed that I might be ever open to the tenderness of a child’s heart, and that I might never fail to see beyond the appearance and behavior of a child to the eternal possibilities within.
Yes, I saw him in the church house for the first time on Wednesday. As I looked at that immaculately dressed old gentleman lying in his casket, I thought of the little boy of long ago. I could almost hear him say, “No, ma’am, I won’t ever.”
And I wept.
The Last Impression
A mother walks into the kitchen and sees her daughter with the whole box of animal crackers spread on the counter top.
The mother asked, “Why did you pour out the whole box?”
The little girl replied, “The box says, ‘Do not eat if the seal is broken.’ I’m looking for the seal.”
Thanks so much for reading firstIMPRESSIONS! I hope that the Lord has used this week’s issue to speak to you, and help you to draw closer to Him. My prayer for you – and for me, too – is to daily be made more like Him (Romans 8:29) so that all who see me would see the Christ that lives within me. May God continue to bless you and use you to reach your world for Him!
Yours for HIM

SCRATCH THE POLITICAL ITCH
By Morris Clopton
First let me state that I borrowed most of these ideas from a visiting preacher, Guy Jolin. The expounding on each thought is mine.
God – What has the Supreme Court said about God during its history? There are at least 136 oral arguments concerning God viewable on the Supreme Court website.
Constitution- How does the constitution fare on the Supreme Court?
“The republic endures and this is the symbol of its faith.”
CHIEF JUSTICE CHARLES EVANS HUGHES
“EQUAL JUSTICE UNDER LAW”-These words, written above the main entrance to the Supreme Court Building, express the ultimate responsibility of the Supreme Court of the United States. The Court is the highest tribunal in the Nation for all cases and controversies arising under the Constitution or the laws of the United States. As the final arbiter of the law, the Court is charged with ensuring the American people the promise of equal justice under law and, thereby, also functions as guardian and interpreter of the Constitution.
The Supreme Court is “distinctly American in concept and function,” as Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes observed. Few other courts in the world have the same authority of constitutional interpretation and none have exercised it for as long or with as much influence. A century and a half ago, the French political observer Alexis de Tocqueville noted the unique position of the Supreme Court in the history of nations and of jurisprudence. “The representative system of government has been adopted in several states of Europe,” he remarked, “but I am unaware that any nation of the globe has hitherto organized a judicial power in the same manner as the Americans. . . . A more imposing judicial power was never constituted by any people.”
The unique position of the Supreme Court stems, in large part, from the deep commitment of the American people to the Rule of Law and to constitutional government. The United States has demonstrated an unprecedented determination to preserve and protect its written Constitution, thereby providing the American “experiment in democracy” with the oldest written Constitution still in force…
Cornerstone Address – Supreme Court Building
The People of God failing to stand up for the teaching of Jesus cause undeniable damage to the moral consistency of our great nation. If Christ followers fail to stand for the teaching of Jesus are they really Christ followers.
John Adams stated that the Bible is a law book, which would advance a perfect world if followed.
“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
― John Adams
“The happiness of society is the end of government.”
― John Adams
Roe and Wade – 70’s, there are over 300 references to Roe and Wade on the Supreme Court website. How did Christ followers sit by and pretend that politics is dirty and we are the silent majority we cannot get involved. What is the church doing to help young mothers with their problems of sexual promiscuity and child bearing?
San Francisco’s Homosexuals and their detestable practices causing an ever-increasing AIDS problem. Yet honest God-fearing people bombarded with, force-fed practices among humans that animals do not practiced in the animal kingdom as being an acceptable alternate life style. Stand for what is Right!
Jesus is tough on sin but tender toward sinners in every situation that occurs during His ministry on earth.
Welfare-Societal problem generational, whole societies are on the “dole” and know nothing of self-worth, pride in accomplishment, unable to produce, waiting for the next Government hand out.
The church must stand for right
National day of prayer- George Washington instituted a special day to give thanks to God for saving our great Nation. Today our government ignores God and the morally correct ideas that built this country, substituting instead foreign ideas that are destroying the very moral fiber of America.
Voice of the church must be heard, Talk the talk and walk the walk.
Rosa Parks – remember the individual who had the strength of her convictions and refused to waver in standing up for what she knew to be right.
Malignant press – when a problem is recognized by a few that few must take action to change. The press must be questioned, do not idly stand by when you know the facts and the media blatantly misrepresents the truth. Do the necessary research on your own find the facts and expend all the energy you can to spread the TRUTH about misrepresentation by the media.
Christians must vote. Let our voices be heard through the ballot box
John preached a simple sermon repent and be baptized.
Christians should not only be Christian activist but political activist as well. God used heathen rulers through out history to punish His people. “We the People” elect our rulers hold them accountable.
Take America back one heart at a time.
We are a long distance from 1776 to the moral sewer of 2011.
Founding Fathers were God centered people they had everything to lose. Signed with ink paid with blood, families in hiding, property lost. The price they paid for liberty and freedom is beyond understanding.
What are you doing today while the state takes children from Christians?
How far will we be pushed before we respond- Stand up for Right!
Benjamin Franklin – called on Continental Congress to fall on their knees to seek guidance.
Edward Gibbons – Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire.
Five reasons for the fall of the great dynasty.
• First: Rapid increase of divorce, with the undermining of the sanctity of the home, which is the basis of society.
• Second: Higher and higher taxes; the spending of money for bread and celebrations.
• Third: The mad craze for pleasure, sports becoming every year more exciting and more brutal.
• Fourth: The building of gigantic armaments, when the real enemy was within; the decadence of the people.
• Fifth: The decay of religion; faith fading into mere form, losing touch with life, and becoming impotent to guide it.
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.” (Proverbs 14:34)
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord…” (Psalms 33:12)
“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.” (Galatians 6:7)
Two hundred years average life of a nation through history.
Get involved – Spend time in prayer, seek God’s guidance.
America today is like Sodom and Gomorrah.
God seeks only our repentance and service.
2 Chronicles 7:14 says:
2 Chronicles 7:14(ASV)
14if my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Are you an Ostrich sticking your head in the sand, or an Eagle high in the sky seeing everything?
Use the power of the ballot box to express your wishes and concerns.

Take Courage! Healing Can Be Yours!
The other day, while standing in the check-out line at the local grocery store, the individual in front of me gazed at each of the tabloid newspapers on display, and selected one of each to purchase along with her other selected items. I was once again amazed to see someone pay for those items. Have you ever noticed some of the headlines on those tabloids?
• “Osama Captured By Rednecks”
• “Vegan Vampire Attacks Trees”
• “Kitten Guilty Of Murder”
• “Hillary Clinton Adopts Alien Baby”
• “Dick Cheney Is A Robot”
• “Terrorist Plot To Blow Up Internet On 1-11”
It’s amazing what some folks will believe. But, its even more amazing at what many people don’t believe! In Mark 5, we read that a man named Jairus wanted to have Jesus pray for his daughter to be healed. But, while en route to see his daughter, Jairus‘ daughter died. Jairus‘ friends told him to stop bothering Jesus, because the girl was already deceased.
Jesus‘ response to these people is still His response to people today to those who desire to be healed – “Don’t be afraid – just believe!”
My friend, Evangelist Tiff Shuttlesworth, once said to me that if health care gets any more expensive, Pentecostals are going to have to start believing in divine healing again! Although said in humor, it emphasizes a simple truth – to receive a healing from God, you must believe that God is a healer!
This Sunday at WFA, we continue our series of messages built on the passages where Jesus tells his followers to “Take Courage!” In the parallel passages of Matthew 9 and Mark 5, we read of two healings – one interrupted by the other! The Lord encouraged one of the individuals healed, when He told her “Take courage! Your faith has made you well!” As we examine these passages of the two accounts of healing, we trust that you will be encouraged. Don’t miss our message – “Take Courage! Healing Can Be Yours!”

The Rise and Fall of Tyranny – Part 2 – The Traits and Tactics of Tyranny
May 28th, 2009 |
Once tyranny is established in a nation, how does it perpetuate itself? Again, let us use Biblical references for a foundation to find the answer to this question. In John 8:44 Jesus says, “You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” In John 10:10a Jesus tells us, “The thief comes not, but for to steal, to kill and to destroy:…”
The first tyrant was the devil. The Lord Jesus Christ tells us his tactics as stated above. First, the devil is “a murderer.” He steals, kills and destroys. Next, the devil is “a liar.” By means of deception, he herds people into perverted lifestyles. We see this happening before our very eyes. This has been going on for some time. Homosexual lifestyles, abortion on demand and the like that are corrupting our nation, are based on lies. Then, the devil goes about as “a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” He also comes as “an angel of light to deceive.”
Lenin is an example of a person who was controlled by the devil. As we stated in part 1, a tyrant rises out of lawlessness. Tyranny cannot take root and grow in a nation that has absolute standards of right and wrong. Our Founding Fathers fought tyrants. For this reason, they gave us a constitutional republican form of government with checks and balances, rather than a democracy, to safeguard us against tyrants. A democracy leads to anarchy. A constitutional republic based on the ten commandments leads to a stable law abiding society. To perpetuate themselves, tyrants must destroy our form of government. A tyrant must have absolute control over everyone to administer his evil empire. He must have people who will administer his wicked schemes.>
Lenin’s diabolical plan that was used to bring a nation under tyrannical control is stated in his “Blueprint for World Dominion.” His first overt act against a nation was to corrupt its youth. He instructed his mindless followers to destroy the youths’ morals by getting them involved in drugs, alcohol and sex as well as getting them addicted to privileges and rights. Then he instructed them to take complete control of all mass media and thus control the peoples’ minds, then they were to encourage public indifference to their government, to encourage public bickering so they would fight one another, to seize power and censor anyone who disagreed with them, to bankrupt the government, to destroy national values by ridiculing religion, patriotism and honesty, to take control of its guns to disarm its citizens, to undermine their armed forces and to cause the people to desire peace at any cost. When you see an organization or government doing the things listed above, you are looking at a system that is rules by the brute force of a tyrant. The only way tyranny can perpetuate itself is to constantly keep the people in a state of confusion with a well organized war against their moral and spiritual values.
My book, Deceitful Masters, in Part III, Chapter 3 shows the traits of tyranny. You may want to check out my website at http://www.DeceitfulMasters.com that shows you how to protect yourself against the tyranny that is fast coming upon us.
Feel free to buy a copy of my book, “Deceitful Masters” from Amazon.com.

An Army of Two
by Jim Liebelt
“For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” — Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)
An old lighthouse sits on the edge of the shore in Scituate, MA. At this lighthouse a plaque memorializes what has been called “An Army of Two.” During the Revolutionary War, a British ship anchored just off shore and lowered smaller boats with British troops that headed toward the shore. Two young girls, having seen the British soldiers approaching from the lighthouse, took a drum and fife outside and played. The British troops heard the music and mistakenly assumed that the noise was coming from an American militia and quickly retreated. No one would have ever thought that two young girls could have won a decisive battle that day – all without a shot ever being fired.
If you’ve ever thought that you can’t make a difference, let this simple, true story from America’s history be an encouragement to you. Amazingly, something as simple as playing a fife and drum can make a huge difference! God has gifted you uniquely and specially and if you offer yourself to Him today – you can expect that even in some small way, He will provide you with opportunities to make a difference in someone else’s life.
How? Who knows? It may not take much. Perhaps a kind word spoken to a stranger, an e-mail to a friend, giving a hug to a family member, or helping a peer at school or work – could be just the encouragement that someone in your life needs to help them make it through a tough day.
Don’t underestimate God’s willingness to use your ordinary actions to touch the life of someone else in extraordinary ways! Today, be willing to be “An Army of One.”
