For me there is nothing so rewarding As opening god s word and expounding it to saints and sinners. To preach is satisfying because the preacher is dealing with god and Man s relationship to him. What could be More important than to show people How to be right with their maker and preaching is dealing not with temporary trivia that will be forgotten in five years but with eternal matters with heaven or hell for All eternity. Moreover in proclaiming god s word the preacher sets Forth truths that can never change that Are always True. How satisfying that is in this Day when some sophists Are saying there Are no absolutes and that what is up is Down what is True is false and what is is not. Finally to preach and to the holy spirit use his word to bring Comfort to lost sinners and troubled saints to the lonely and frustrated and disappointed and bereaved that is fun pure fun. But there is also current the strange notion that preaching is better than killing that somehow it is More holy. Now this is out and out nonsense and a biblical. R j to murder of course is wrong. Or even to hate. That is sin. However we Are not speaking of murder but of killing. And not just killing animals but killing the image of god human beings. To kill As a Soldier in War or As a policeman or As an executioner is As holy As to preach. That is what i am saying. What is holiness to do what god wants you to do. To obey his commandments. If god tells you to preach then to preach is holy. If god tells you to Plant Corn then to Plant Corn is holy. And if god tells you to kill then to kill is holy. And we have no right to say but god. God told Adam to Plant Corn and cultivate roses Gen. 2 15. For Man then to say but god 1 know better. It is More holy to talk to others about you is either ignorant foolishness or wilful disobedience. When god told Adam to have Dominion r Over this world Gen. 1 28he was telling him to make a dishwasher for eve to land on Venus to climb it. Everest and to produce a pollutant free noiseless Lawn Mower. To follow that command is holiness. Whenever we do what god tells us it is holiness even when he tells Man to kill and at times he does permit and even demand killing. God commanded Joshua to kill the canaanites Joshua 1 40, for example. He raised up Gideon to defeat the midia nites. He authorizes punishment by death for various offences that today would be considered non capital exodus 21. But of particular importance is genesis 9. Where before the ceremonial Law and in a context of universalism flood Promise of its never reoccurring the image of go god commands whoever Sheds the blood of Man by Man shall his blood be shed for god made Man in his own image Gen. 9 6. For us to say that it is sinful to exercise capital punishment is to say that genesis 9 6 is wrong. And when god tells us that the government that bears the sword is god s servant an agent of Justice to bring punishment on the wrongdoer rom. 13 4, Niv then we know that god s servant May use a revolver against a murderer a rapist a thug and that it is holy to do so. 4 so to kill As an official servant of god whether it be in executing a murderer or capturing an anarchist or defending one s country is simply obeying god s will. And to obey god in whatever he tells us to do is to be holy whether it is having Dominion Over the fish of planting a Garden or defending our country or preaching the word. So killing is As holy As preaching. And a preacher is not More holy than a Marine if in his profession the Marine is conscious of serving the Triune god.

Whatever achievements i accomplish Are done through Jesus. Ever since my grandmother introduced me to Jesus i made him the Boss of my life. He is the Only Boss. I will not accept any other. There have been Many people who have tried to control and dominate my life but i Tell them All that Jesus is my chief of staff then i am in charge. Others Are afraid to say these words. I am not. I believe that the Meek will inherit the Earth but to get so Meek that others can push you around is beyond Nie. I must make Waves. If i Don t i am not Happy. When a person gets involved in something he can expect trouble. Am that Type of person. I will not Back away. So this makes Nic a Leader in the sight of others. If i Lead others. I go first to Jesus and 1 ask for his Grace and Power. Unless i am in that will and unless i have that Grace and Power i do nothing because i would be powerless. You say that the glory is mine. I say not. The glory belongs to Jesus. I have a Cousin Duane Arnold who runs an atomic Power Plant. He stuck his neck out to build this Plant. Some people said he should t have but it was his dream realized. 1 try never to think too much of myself. I would rather think of others and How i can improve their lives. This has always been my thing. To get involved brings trouble. Others might say i am not right All the time and they Are absolutely right but when i do achieve something it always proves that by working with god the work glorifies him. I do not say i dislike the Praise of society but i also want the Praise of the kingdom beyond. 4 a Der to broadcast seven productions a.
