Pastor David Jeremiah’s Important Sermon On The Presidential Election

Friday, October 26, 2012

Oppressive and Unrighteous Leadership

In the 2008 campaign Senator Barack Obama said, "I take the Constitution very seriously. The biggest problems that we're facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the Executive Branch and not going through Congress at all. And that's what I intend to reveres when I'm president of the United States."

The following is an incomplete list of Pres. Obama Czars with job description, who were appointed without Congressional approval and are quietly changing the US policies.
It looks as though there are 40 czars with an average salary of $165,350, which is costing American tax payers roughly $6,500,000 per-year.

There are very few of us who know just what all of Obama's Czars do, as they quietly go about their "work" in the nation's capital. This listing of names and job descriptions should be educational to all Americans, no matter what your political views are.

Gary Samore - WMD Policy Czar - Former US Communist. Wants US to destroy all WMD unilaterally as a show of good faith. Has no other "policy" experience.

These are the people who are helping to run our country and they answer to no one other than Pres. Obama. After reviewing the picture and information of each individual that was available, I can't help from wondering, how many of these are of the Muslim faith or appeasers to the extremely, such as Pres. Obama.

Now for the really tough questions: Please tell me which president is it that is seeking more and more power? Which President has plunged America into more debt than all previous presidents combined? Which president has caused the greatest division of the citizens of America? Which president has caused more damage to the economy? Which president has done more to destroy Americans liberties and freedom?

Does it look as though Pres. Obama was honest with his statement doing his 2008 campaign?

Introduction to the Gospel of Luke

The largest numbers of details surrounding the birth of Jesus are recorded in the Gospel of Luke. Luke was a physician and was probably the only non-Jewish writer in the New Testament. Luke wanted readers to understand that Jesus was not only the Son of God, but also a man; that’s why Luke often uses the title, Son of Man for Jesus and Luke traces Jesus’ genealogy all the way back to the first man, Adam.
According to Luke, Jesus lived the perfect life as a man, and thus became the perfect sacrifice for our sins, so we may be saved. At the heart of this Gospel are parables that show the compassion of Jesus as the pursuing Savior in which He is liken to characters whose search for a lost coin, for lost sheep and a lost son.
Luke recorded all these stories and events about Jesus for the helpless and loss and confused people of every era. Before Luke wrote his gospel he did extensive research, he was not an eye witness of the life of Jesus, so Luke begins by explaining that he is reporting the facts after carefully investigation from various sources, he was a close friend and traveling companion of Paul, which allowed him to interview those who were eye witnesses, such as the disciples and to check other historical accounts
Luke watched the growth of the early church and wrote the history of that period which is called the Acts of the Apostles, you may know it as the Book of Acts.
As you listen notice how the Gospel of Luke is especially important for understanding the way of salvation and note the historical details as well as the warm sensitive understanding that Jesus showed for those that were around Him

Read Luke 1

Highlights: Virgin birth of Jesus foretold; Mary's visit to Elizabeth; Mary's praise; birth of John the Baptist.
The angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: Luke 1:30-32.
Then we read that Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste... into the house of Zacharias a priest, whose wife, Elisabeth, was Mary's cousin.
When Mary arrived, she greeted Elisabeth. And, immediately, Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? Luke 1:39:43.
How delightful this must have been to Mary's heart. Instead of suspicion there was salutation and miraculous revelation from Elisabeth who felt so privileged and yet unworthy of being in the presence of the mother of her Messiah.
Following this, the Holy Spirit speaks through Mary, saying: My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior.... For He that is mighty hath done to me great things; and Holy is His name. And His mercy is on them that fear Him from generation to generation. Luke 1:46-50.
After being unable to speak, Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying, Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for He hath visited and redeemed His people, And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of His servant David;.... To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins, Luke 1:67-69, 77.
The greatness of that promise Child was threefold. It related first to His divine origin. He was to be called the Son of the Highest and shalt call his name Jesus. because He shall save his people from their sins. Secondly, not only does Jesus deliver us from the curse of sin, but He raises us to the high heritage of adopted sons Gal. 4:5; Eph. 1:5. And most glorious of all, He shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Luke 1:33.

Thought for Today: Magnifying and praising the LORD are two of our most blessed privileges.

The Gospel Of Matthew

Read Matthew 15 – 17Highlights:
Scribes and Pharisees rebuked: many healed; 4,000 fed; Peter's confession of Christ; death and resurrection foretold; transfiguration; question of tribute money.
And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the Living God (Matt. 16:16). Jesus had now reached a major turning point in His mission. His marvelous miracle ministry was finished. After feeding the 4,000 men, besides women and children, near Capernum, He dismissed the crowds, got into a boat, and went across the lake to Magdala (15:38-39) near where the Jordan enters the Lake of Gennesaret. He arrived in the vicinity of the principal source of the Jordan at Caesarea Philippi, the northernmost city of the Promised Land. Caesarea Philippi is located at the foot of Mount Hermon. It was here in the midst of prominent and popular idol worship that Jesus asked His disciples: Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? (16:13). It could have been a very troubling question, since the religious leaders of the nation all violently opposed Him. Furthermore, Jesus had not fulfilled the hopes of the people for a revolution. Thus, some of the crowds that once had followed Him with great enthusiasm, had left Him (John 6:15,66). In response to His question, the disciples answered: Some say that Thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets (Matt.16:14). At this time, none regarded Him as the Messiah. But when He said: whom do you say that I am? without hesitation, Peter said: You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God (16:16). Matthew, throughout his Gospel, clearly points out how Jesus of Nazareth fulfilled “all” the prophecies concerning the Messiah. But, most importantly, the revelation was inward, as the Lord confirmed: Flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but My Father which is in Heaven (16:17). The world will always be confused as to whether Jesus was a prophet or just a good man. Not until the eyes of our understanding have been opened by the Holy Spirit, can we receive the true revelation of who Jesus really is. All who confess their sins and see their need of a Savior recognize Him as their only hope of eternal life. And, like Matthew, millions have forsaken all to follow Him. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? (Matt.16:26). Thought for Today:
No one will ever recognize Jesus as Lord through human reasoning.
