LEGISLATIVE UPDATE - WEEK ENDING MARCH 25, 2005

HOUSE AND SENATE IN RECESS

EASTER

Congressmen have returned to their districts and will not meet in session again until April 4th.

Meanwhile the American Atheists are holding their annual convention in Philadelphia, beginning Good Friday, the day Christ died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins. The atheist convention will last until Easter Sunday, the day Christ rose from the grave in defeat of death. It is extremely significant that the atheists begin their convention about the hour Christ died on the cross and end it about the time of His Resurrection. The darkest hours for humanity are the hours of glory for those who hate God. As the light of the Lord shines in victory on Sunday, the atheists will disband.

What is the main preaching point of the atheists at this--and for that matter, all--of their media events and conventions? They state that truth is relative and that each man must decide for himself what is right and what is wrong. Satanists make that same statement!

According to Aleister Crowley, who was the founder of the modern Ordo Templi Orientis and also the man who called himself "the Beast 666" of Revelation, atheists are correct. His Great Law of Thelema proclaimed in his Book of the Law is "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law." The basic tenet of atheism, secularism and Satanism are identical that each individual should "do as he or she pleases." The ultimate result of this philosophy is either anarchy or totalitarianism.

In the end, all human beings will bow before Christ. There is only one question, will the bow be to honor Him or will the bow be in fear of the Judgment they will receive because of their unpardoned sin?

Please join me in prayer that every atheist and secularist who raves against our Lord this weekend will be touched by the truth of our Lord, that their lives will be changed and that they will come to serve Him.

This weekend should be about one thing only ... the truth of the Resurrection ....

1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:
4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. Matthew 28:1-7 (KJV)

May the presence of the Holy Spirit bless you and your family this Easter weekend.

HELPING PALESTINIAN CHRISTIANS

As part of our ongoing support of Christian Palestinians we have been making available the handmade olive oil soap from Samaria for about $5.00 a bar for several years. Part of the cost was the shipment by air from Israel. We have now been able to arrange transportation of a large quantity by ship and this has allowed us to reduce the price and still send the same amount of money to Christian Palestinian families. The handmade olive oil soap is now just $3.95 per bar! To learn more about this handmade olive oil soap click here.
