    “Christmas, A Pagan Holiday” I
ov j.m. uiue
Part II -
All those years I spent in
vanity and pride, just like you,
I was so miserable. Running
here and there trying to work
myselTup to a slate of ease I
never could reach. You won’t
t rach it either UtUe friend.
You say, “Brother UtUe, you
are being personal again.”
Yes I am, you’ve got to come
to know Christ or go to Hell! I
praise the Lord my pastor
didn’t compromise with me, if
he had I never would have
been saved. I’m going to keep
your feet to one thing: you’ve
got to get to Christ or go to
bell! You can call me mean or
picking on you all you want to.
Your soul is hanging in the
balance, dear heart. If I hated
you I wouldn’t be talking to
you like this. I know what it
means to be lost. Now I know
what it means to be saved.
That the Lord will use me to
His glory is my prayer. If you
knew, oh if you only knew
what it means to know Christ,
you’d turn loose the world.
May God have mercy on you
as He did me. I have ho
apology to make, I have no
compromise to make, it’s re
pent or perish!
The whole world is running
break neck speed down the
toboggan slide to hell in all
this pagan idolatry. Listen to
me Bible teacher, study the
tenth chapter of Jeremiah and
see that you’ve been following
the heathens of old in your
xme castrations. Nimrod
was the first Santa Claus. Now
you can read about Nimrod in
Genesis. The world as a whole
will and does accept the forni
cation of Nimrod, which is the
“Yule" celebration, but the
world as a whole would not
accept Nimrod as a person.
You ask why? Ill give you
something there to think a
x>ut.
If you love the Lord, once
you see the truth about this
worldwide celebration you
will immediately come out of
it. Christmas is just demon
warship, Bible teacher. I’m
talking to you! That’s right,
it’s just demon worship! Are
you a true worshipper of God
or a demon worshipper. Many
of you who claim to/be saved
will put up a tree in your
home, you’ll hayd an image,
there, you’ll tellydur children,
“this is a picture/of the baby
Jesus." The Lord Jesus Christ
is not a baby. We no longer
know Him after the flesh, if
you just know Him as a baby
you really don’t know Him at
all, all you have is just a
figment of your imagination.
Let me ask you a question,
have you ever seen that you
hate God! If not, you don’t
know the God of the Bible!
That’s right, you don’t know
Him! You won’t talk about
Christ yet you say you are
celebrating His birth. What a
tragedy!!
Time is rapidly slipping into
eternity .and you are not sav
ed. Another year has gone by, ,
you’re still lost. Some of you
claim to- know the Lord, yet
you can’t have fellowship with
me in Christ. You claim to
know the Lord, yet you have to
go to the world for pleasure.
Claiming to know the Lord and
0nin0 In a Kail flame Ia«
pleasure. I weep for these
women here who are in rebel
lion against the Gospel. How
jritifuljsjheircase. Going to
USDA Amends
. School Breakfast
Program
WASHINGTON-The U S. '
Department of Agriculture t
(USDA) Tuesday announced •
an amendment to the School
Breakfast Program regula- j
tions to provide greater flexi- fj
bility in the meal pattern by
allowing the service of a vege
table in the meal. Previously,
School Breakfast Program re
gulations called for the ser
vice of fruit or full-strength i
fruit or vegetable Juice as part 1
of the breakfast pattern. Un
der the amended regulations,
the breakfast pattern includes .
a serving of bread or cereal,
milk, and fruit or vegetables, j
or full-strength fruit or vege
talbe Juice.
Officials of USDA’s Food
and Nutrition Service say the
nutritional standards for the
breakfast pattern will be en
hanced or maintained by per
mitting the service of vege
tables. At the same time, the
service of vegetables will give
states and schools greater
flexibility in program opera
tions. .
The new amendment was
published in the Federal Reg
ister of Nov 26 and became
effective on Nov. 22. I
J. M. A
neu mocking Christ. There
won’t be any mocking of
Christ in hell. But in bell you’ll
curse God and me, but it won't
do you any good. .
It is my prayer that God in
His infinite mercy and grace
will put a desire in your heart
after Christ. If grace never
puts a desire in your heart
after Christ, you’ll never want
to be saved. I read a statement
by a local preacher Just re
cently. He said, "all men are
born with a hunger after
Godi” There never was a
greater lie out of hell than that
one, he skinned his ignorance
to the nth degree didn’t he?
The only way there will ever
be a desire in your heart after
Christ is for the Holy Spirit to
plant one there. You’re dead.
You can’t hunger after Christ.
I’ll tell you something else in
closing, if you are not one of
God’s elect, you may as well
forget all about it, you’ll never
be saved. If you are one of
God’s elect, you will be saved.
When 1 saw that under Holy
Spirit Conviction, it made a
beggar out of me, I sued for
mercy until mercy was be
stowed upon a lost guilty hell
deserving sinner, yes, mercy
bestowed, upon a lost guilty
hell deserving sinner. Yes, it’s
mercy in told. Oh, the un
searcnaoie ricnes 01 UlnSt!
Wealth that can never be told!
I wish you knew that friend.
Oh, if you only knew! Just
think, I, a redeemed sinner.'
once sinking deep in- the mire
of sin and love lifted me out
and set me on the “rock,
Christ {lesus.” Oh, what a
deliverance it was! I was such
a flithy sinner, 1 was so guilty.
I tell you I can't describe in
words .what I saw myself to be.
I can’t describe what I saw
myself to be under Holy Spirit
Conviction. Oh, the agony of
soul, a lost guilty hell deserv
ing sinner. But, oh, that day
the Lord delivered this poor
sinner, lifted me oht of the
miry clay, set my foot upon
the “Rock, Christ Jesus,’’ put
a new song in my mouth,
even praise unto the Lord,
Amen. I’m glad the Lord
saved me, I wouldn’t ex
change what I have in Christ
for ten thousand worlds. I’m
not talking about a religion,
brother, I’m talking about a
living Lord. Just think, all my
sins gone, blotted out forever,
praise the Lord. Redeemed by
His blood! Saved by the grace
of God! Praise the Lord. Do
you know that Christ? I would
that you did. Oh, that you’d
turn to Him. It doesn’t matter
what comes or goes if you
know Christ. Not religion, not
church membership, but a
uiuig ui me world is just to
know Him.
“Should You Go First”
Should you go first and I
remain
. To walk the road alone,
I’ll live in memory’s garden
dear ’
With happy days we’ve
known.
In spring I’ll wait for roses
red,
When fades the lilac blue
In early fall when brown
leaves call
I’ll catch a glimpse of you.
Should you go first and I
remain
For battles to be fought,
Each thing you've touched
along the way
Will be a hallowed spot.
I’ll hear your voice,
I’ll see your smile,
Though blindly I may grope,
The mercy of your helping
hand
Will buoy me on with hope.
Should you go first and I
remain
To finish with the scroll,
No length ’ning shadows shall
creep in
To make this life seem droll,
We’ve known so much of
We’ve bad our cup of joy,
And memory is one gift of God
That death cannot destroy.
Should you go first and I
remain !
One thing I’d have you do;
Walk slowly down the path of
death,
For soon I’ll follow you.
I’ll want to know each step you
take
That I may walk the same,
For some day down that lonely
road
You’ll hear me call your
name.
