Dear President Obama (Updated)

23 Mar

Thank you for all your hard work in office… finally the church in America is once again praying.

You did the right thing by running for office a second time… the legalization of medical marijuana may just save this planet as the next cash crop just as tobacco did for our ancestors many years ago.  May you retire with dignity and honor and live wherever Jesus may lead you.  You have a beautiful family and thus are not “the Antichrist” as many people were silently hoping for, just because you choose to reach for a dream which many in America are still not ready to accept.

Please… never divorce this country from your prayers… you are needed down here to bring peace to many in other countries who are still silently suffering…

Personally, I would prefer you stay in office until you feel the need to retire… people need someone to idolize in this country for doing everything right…

As always, it is my prayers that you and your family remains safe and free from harm and can find rest in the days ahead in the gentle arms of our risen savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.  It is no secret that unquestionably all prayers are safe, even for us common folk; as without question you have beautiful children, of which the world is truly blessed by their modesty and kind human approach to a world carved in darkness and utter human depravity.  You set for this nation and around the world the most beautiful example of what a family should be like by just loving them each first individually and then as a family.  How dare Christians laugh at you because of you personal beliefs… as our nation was founded with the ideas of peace, especially when it comes to our shared and most common Christian faiths.

Anybody would be a fool not to acknowledge that you were left with a mess after our last president chose to shed so much bloodshed and in turn wasted so many good human lives on foreign soil just for the sake of stupid greed and of course the love of money (or in this case oil).

Thank you for keeping this country safe to the best of your human ability.  God bless you!

The Lord (blessed be his name) showed me the tremendous amount of pressure you have been under day and night just trying to protect the us the chosen faithful (in whatever religion they may be currently hiding in).  Your efforts to bring peace are truly amazing as you are a truly gifted speaker and lover of world peace.

Personally, if more Christians were like me and actually prayed for you instead of bashing you in their quiet times with the Lord (never mind on the radio) they may see you are a man of many talents and interesting ideas… Blessed be!

We who study history are aware that America’s time has run out as bully on the block just to satisfy our carnal appetites, of which mainly is our love of money while the rest of the world is starving.  We know our credit rating is not good, because we lied to all about how much this country is truly a “Christian” nation.  Detroit is once again becoming a beautiful city thanks to your financial aid and by allowing free education to young people everywhere to realize their own dreams and ideologies.

Please allow me to apologize for the stupid ones who mock what they do not see.  Personally, one of my dearest friends is currently back home in Syria (where it is hell on earth at the moment as you are well aware because of the rebellious religious sect Isis) where, after studying in a local University here in Detroit, he is now back home safe and sound with the freedom to choose between good versus evil, right versus wrong.  He was a humble foreign exchange student who needed help learning the nuances of the English language and in return showed me mercy with my humble attempt of learning one of the hardest languages on earth, which obviously is Arabic!  It’s still mostly Greek to me!  lol.

Thank you for allowing this country to change for the better… thankfully us Christians are still “A” okay!

Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to read a humble pastor’s blog…

Sincerely,

Your friend in Christ,

Pastor John Mark Butzu

Detroit, Michigan USA

P.S  I would personally like to see Christians locked up that do not pray for this country.  For that is our duty (as you my readers are well aware) to pray for whomever God chooses to bless while in the white house… good or bad, whatever the case may be.

Many Christians suffered for their faith under extreme persecution as it makes the weak break and the strong survive to live another day.  In China, one out of four pastors are in prison at any given time and miracles happen there on a daily basis… It is our prayer that young believers grow strong in their faith if they knew what was best before time runs out and it is judgement day… what a terrible waste for some who choose to lie rich with full bellies and not care and hoard while others even in their own back years are literally starving for the knowledge of our precious savior Jesus Christ.  God help the younger generation to see the need on the streets and in our now global society

Amen.

Your comments are welcome and enjoyed… Have fun!

Do we pray for the Muslim Children in our Backyard?

15 Jul

Matthew 5:44-48   “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;  That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.  For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?   And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?  Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Here is a video that should break your heart.  Pray for courageous missionaries both here in America as well as overseas that will help to turn the tide of this racial/ethnic hatred to our Muslim extremists neighbors!

What we really need

28 Apr

Editors Note:  This was copied from a previous blog entry at a different website dated April 13, 2008.  Hope you enjoy it.

Today I was reading in the book of Acts 1:8 “But ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: I had recently done some traveling and have noticed one thing in particular:  We need the Holy Ghost in our lives above everything else!  We pray for more possessions, freedom from our responsibilities, etc, yet many of these blessings actually can become more of a snare than a real blessing so often of the time.  What we really need today more than ever before is for men and women to rise up like Anna in the New Testament who, awaiting the coming of her savior, dedicated her life to prayer and intercession on behalf of her fellow countrymen. We need Christians who know how to pray and that love the practice of prayer, who study their Bible: not to gain some intellectual advantage over their peers, but who with a broken heart search out even the hardest sayings in the Bible, whose hearts cry out like the psalmist David, Search me O God, and try me: see if there be any wicked way in me, anything that might hinder someone from finding and loving you.(pp)  We need believer’s who hunger for God to be seen flowing in and through them more than they yearn for financial success or the praise and adulation of men: men and women of all ages who possess within them a deep and burning desire to see lives changed; who have spent quality time in prayer, and who’s very lives testify against a society that has become absolutely barbaric and shocking in the sins of which it now openly practices, applauds, commits and accepts.

We have programs inside of our churches for everything that so much of the time replaces the original and true reason for Christian fellowship: empowerment.  Every time members of the early church came together the results were always the same: the Holy Ghost filling their hearts with the love and empowerment to win souls, to be kind to their enemies, to pray for their nation’s rebellious leaders (instead of tearing them down), etc.  Do you leave your church excited, bursting inside with the need to tell someone about the love of Jesus Christ? If you don’t chances are there may be something lacking either in your pastors’ personal prayer time or in your own walk with the Lord.  While on a vacation (during which God allowed me graciously to have the time to create this website) I purchased at a fairly reasonable price a new Bible software program that I had been praying for for quite some time.  Although I now have this software I know from experience that this in and of itself cannot magically make me a better Bible student.  I must first ask the Holy Ghost to help me so that:

1) I will not waste time playing with parts of this program that I do not need and am certainly not ready to use.

2) So that He will lead me to share the Scriptures as accurately as I can and with great joy and enthusiasm.

3) To empower my study so that He will cause Himself to remain glorified through the work if my hands, and through all the day.

To much of our time as Christians is spent on performing tasks that we are not really yet ready to handle or do not need.  I think of all the millions of dollars that are spent for things that steal our time away from Christ: especially for temporary entertainment and personal pleasure. I wonder where Christianity would be today if the first disciples instead of fasting and prayer gathered in that upper room for the sole purpose of playing video games  on their desert Sony X boxes and Play Station 2’s and 3’s. Sit and think for a while on how much time we waste.  Why don’t we a Christians put our idols away and pray for a generation of young people that have never known what it is to experience the love of Jesus Christ.  We should compare our lives as the followers of Christ to the writings found in the gospels and other portions of New Testament scripture and not to those that just happen to live and work around us.  How do our lives measure against the words of Jesus and not our western neighbors?  After all, that is how we will be judged at the resurrection.  Remember the words of Jesus “that those that have much, much will be required.”  We in America have more wealth than any other nation on earth.  How will we as Christians be judged who live in it, who consume so much of the resources that God give us on ourselves, in light of the affliction and poverty of those that we see all perhaps by television or the internet all around us.  Have our hearts become that hardened that we are unwilling to even share our bread with those that so desperately need it, not to mention the true bread that we have inside of us; the living Word of God.  Recall especially Matthew 25 where we find the parable of the talents, the wise and foolish virgins, and the parable of the sheep and the goats.  It was not so much what these so called believers did but what they didn’t do that excluded them from them partaking in the marriage supper of the lamb.

Today is the day that the Lord has made.  Let us all do our very, very best for Him.

Quote of the day: Tertullian, one of the early church fathers, wrote: “How beautiful, then, the marriage of two Christians, two who are one in home, one in desire, one in the way of life they follow, one in the religion they practice . . . Nothing divides them either in flesh or in spirit . . . They pray together, they worship together, they fast together; instructing one another, encouraging one another, strengthening one another. Side by side they visit God’s church and partake God’s banquet, side by side they face difficulties and persecution, share their consolations. They have no secrets from one another; they never shun each other’s company; they never bring sorrow to each other’s hearts . . . Seeing this Christ rejoices. To such as these He gives His peace. Where there are two together, there also He is present.”
