Focus on Faith
Sermon Outline – Pastor Thomas Robb
Bad habits are easier to develop then good habits
Actually bad habits don’t develop they occur naturally.
A child has to be taught to develop the habit of
brushing teeth, washing hands
“yes sir” and “yes maam”, or “no sir” and “no maam”
or – list examples
discern between right and wrong
to avoid drugs
and race mixing
We need to develop the habit of faith
It just doesn’t magically happen
We need to develop the habit of faith especially in today’s world
faith comes from love
Love the Lord thy God . . .
Faith is a decision – like the decision to brush your teeth, wash your hands, say your prayers or to be polite.
You decide to do each of these until they become a habit.
When Christ said – be like a child – he is telling us to go back to our youth and begin to learn the habits of Christian character.
Making a committment

DEVELOP THE HABIT OF FAITH
1 “When thou goest out to battle against thine enemies,
(not always easy – will have enemies – love)
and seest horses, and chariots, and a people more than thou, be not afraid of them: for the LORD thy God is with thee, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. 2 And it shall be, when ye are come nigh unto the battle, that the priest shall approach and speak unto the people, 3 And shall say unto them, Hear, O Israel, ye approach this day unto battle against your enemies: let not your hearts faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because of them; 4 For the LORD your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you . . .
A couple of examples to illustrate
1) Michael Dini, a biology professor at Texas Tech University, is refusing to write letters of recommendations for any of his students who do not accept and believe the teachings of evolution.
2) In California, the Supreme Court may alter the ethics policy of the California courts which would prohibit judges from belonging to the Boy Scouts because the Boy Scouts do not allow homosexual scout leaders.
3) The government has recently reported that the number of immigrants living illegally in the United States jumped by 1 million in under four years. The 2000 Census and INS statistics, show that there are roughly 7 million immigrants, mostly Mexicans, were living illegally in the United States as of January 2000. Aside from Mexico, other countries which contributed large number of illegal aliens include El Salvador, Guatemala, Colombia, Honduras, China and Ecuador.
4) Terry Pawclift – arrested for reading the Bible in front of an abortion clinic and has been charged for terroristic threatening.
5) There is a proposal to establish U.S. Social Security offices in major Mexican cities so that Mexicans who had lived in the United States (even those who have lived here illegally) can apply and receive Social Security benefits.
6) The Mexican government has established offices in cities throughout the country in which Mexican nationals who are in this country illegally can obtain ID cards. These cards called Matricula Consular look similar to your state issued driver lincense and the only people who would have need of one is an illegal. Some states are now accepting these ID cards for the purpose of obtaining driver license. Also these cards are accepted by at least 74 banks throughout the nation including, Wells Fargo and Bank of America.
Verse 8 “And the officers shall speak further unto the people, and they shall say, What man is there that is fearful and fainthearted? let him go and return unto his house, lest his brethren’s heart faint as well as his heart.”
Fearful do not enter the kingdom
Re 21:8 “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone.”
Romans 6:16 “Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey.”
New Living Translation “Don’t you realize that whatever you choose to obey becomes your master?”
Fear is as natural to us as hunger and thirst. Pain is also natural and necessary. If you would hurt your leg with a severe cut and felt no pain you could possibly lose much blood before you were aware of it. So like pain – fear is also a positive natural reaction to things that can harm us. In that regard fear is a stimuli. Fear will help you to run when you need to run, to lift your guard and to stay clear of danger. It causes the adrenaline to flow and perhaps your feet to move swiftly.
But fear is also a depressant. And whether fear is your stimuli or your depressant depends on you, your attitude and your focus.
Those of you who have ever raised chickens may have seen how fear in the chicken will cause him to react strangely. If a dog begins to chase a chicken it will flutter its wings, squawk and run. However, something strange then happens. If the dog should catch the chicken, the chicken will stop running and will literally squat on the ground while the dog begins to chew on him without even making an attempt to escape. The chicken became so fearful that he was unable to move. Fear was no longer the tool but the master.
Sometimes people act the same way. Thomas Paine observed this phenomenon and wrote of it in his essay Common Sense. “The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will in this crisis shrink from service to his country. But he who stands now deserve the thanks of men and women.”
All through the Bible we see examples of God calling common folks like you and me for service. Sometimes the service was great (in the eyes of man) and other times small, but at each time there were men and women who answered the call and stood.
So God has called us – you and me – to his service. Those of us hear and most of those listening on tape are aware of our identity. You know that the Anglo-Saxon, Nordic, Germanic and the kindred people of Europe are Israel. You know that God is dealing with our people in spite of the fact that most are totally unaware.
Christ said, “to whom much is given, much is required.” You can not go back on what you know to be true. Once you have seen you will never be satisfied with darkness again. Once you know your identity you will never be satisfied with the preachers, teachers and teaching of Judeo-Christian churches.
Even so, fear will cause even Identity people to “shrink from service” just as Tom Paine said. These are the summer soldiers and sunshine patriots of Identity. Like the chicken cowering while the dog chews on his neck.
Fear without faith will be a depressant and cause the “summer soldier” to become inactive. When this kind of fear fills the life of a Christian they are afraid of the unknown. Those who fight against us use this fear most effectively. They are quick to employ fear propaganda against us.
If you walk down the street and ask people about the Zionist domination of our government, most people would look at you like a deer caught in your headlights. It is this massive shroud of ignorance upon our nation which makes us (as a nation) easy to manipulate. Attempting to awaken them from their stupor is nearly an impossible task.
And they like it that way!
Then there is the other crowd. This is the group you and I belong to. It isn’t because we are smarter or more intelligent. It isn’t because we belong to a certain group, read a certain book or listened to a certain speaker. It isn’t because we were born in a certain place or belonged to a certain religion.
I really don’t know why there are those of us who have become knowledgeable of our Identity and the awareness of those forces arrayed against our people and our faith. But the fact is there are people from the factory worker to the school teacher to the barber and the doctor, from a small town in Oregon to the hustle and bustle of New York who do know and do understand.
It is at this juncture that fear propaganda has its most important job to play. While Zionist Jews will shrug their shoulders and wail about persecution and their helplessness before the masses of people, they will immediately switch roles once a person becomes “aware.”
The fear of losing our children, communities and nation to homosexuals, race-mixers, abortionists and globalists which will arouse a person to search for and be open to truth is a positive fear. It is the fear for survival. It is also a fear that should cause us to realise our helplessness and then to develop faith. If faith is not developed then we become a victim of our paranoia.
It is the same fear that causes the chicken to run.
But those same conspirators (I use conspirators even though I think the word is somewhat misleading because many of those who seek to ruin our western culture are not conspirators as such but merely following a propensity of their nature.) who profess innocence before the masses will then advance the concept of fear in the eyes of those who are aware of their activity.
The purpose is clearly seen. If you are aware of their evil deeds and intentions, then the only solution is to convince you that their power is so strong in so many areas and so virtually complete that you would be wise to “keep your mouth shut.”
And it works!
Patriots throughout the country relate tales of black helicopters, UN troops, chemicals in the air being dispersed by aircraft, Red Chinese on our borders etc. Its only a trap to scare them into inactivity.
I have seen too many patriots who are fearful of even attending meetings because of “spies” writing down their license plate numbers or taking their pictures.
Are they doing it? Are there agents taking your picture etc. Maybe, I don’t know. But the issue before us is not whether someone is taking your picture, or whether there are UN troops or chemicals being dumped in the air. The question is what kind of Christian soldier are you going to be?
What kind of reaction would an officer in the military have if a soldier came to him and said, “I can’t go out there and fight – people are shooting at us?” You and I both know the what the officer’s reaction would be.
Christ is our Commander in Chief, we are in a war against the rebellion of Satan recorded in the 14th chapter of Isaiah. Sure there are those that hate you, sure there are those doing battle against you, sure there are those who seek to destroy this great Republic. But as a Christian Soldier we must stand and proclaim the Good News of God’s impending VICTORY! We must not be the chicken cowering as the dog chews on our neck, nor be the “summer soldier” who “shrank from service to his country.”
Distribute liteature, talk to your friends, spread the word to people where ever and whenever you can.
When the call is made – “Who is on the Lord’s side?” what will your answer be.”
“Hear, O Israel, ye approach this day unto battle against your enemies: let not your hearts faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because of them; 4 For the LORD your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.”
Psalms 23 “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.”
