• A letter from Pastor John MacArthur to Governor Gavin Newsome. Actually, the call to faith in Christ is what we all should respond to:

    Sir,

    Almighty God says in His Word, “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people” (Proverbs 14:3). Scripture also teaches that it is the chief duty of any civic leader to reward those who do well and to punish evildoers (Romans 13:1–7). You have not only failed in that responsibility; you routinely turn it on its head, rewarding evildoers and punishing the righteous.

    The Word of God pronounces judgment on those who call evil good and good evil (Isaiah 5:20), and yet many of your policies reflect this unholy, upside-down view of honor and morality. The diabolical effects of your worldview are evident in the statistics of California's epidemics of crime, homelessness, sexual perversions (like homosexuality and transgenderism), and other malignant expressions of human misery that stem directly from corrupt public policy. I don't need to itemize or elaborate on the many immoral decisions you have perpetrated against God and the people of our state, which have only exacerbated these problems. Nevertheless, my goal in writing is not to contend with your politics, but rather to plead with you to hear and heed what the Word of God says to men in your position.

    “Let all kings bow down before Him, all nations serve Him” (Psalm 72:11).

    “He who rules over men righteously, who rules in the fear of God, is as the light of the morning when the sun rises” (2 Samuel 23:3–4).

    “It is an abomination for kings to commit wicked acts, for a throne is established on righteousness” (Proverbs 16:12).

    What God said to Cyrus is a truth you should take to heart: “I am the LORD, and there is no other; besides Me there is no God. I will gird you, though you have not known Me; that men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun that there is no one besides Me. I am the LORD, and there is no other” (Isaiah 45:5–6).

    In mid-September, you revealed to the entire nation how thoroughly rebellious against God you are when you sponsored billboards across America promoting the slaughter of children, whom He creates in the womb (Psalm 139:13–16; Isaiah 45:9–12). You further compounded the wickedness of that murderous campaign with a reprehensible act of gross blasphemy, quoting the very words of Jesus from Mark 12:31 as if you could somehow twist His meaning and arrogate His name in favor of butchering unborn infants. You used the name and the words of Christ to promote the credo of Molech (Leviticus 20:1–5). It would be hard to imagine a greater sacrilege.

    Furthermore, you chose words from the lips of Jesus without admitting that in the same moment He gave the greatest commandment: “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength” (Mark 12:30). You cannot love God as He commands while aiding in the murder of His image-bearers.

    Psalm 50:16–19 speaks to people who pervert the Word of God for their own sinful ends:

    But to the wicked God says,
    “What right have you to recount My statutes And to take My covenant in your mouth?
    For you hate discipline,
    And you cast My words behind you.
    When you see a thief, you are pleased with him, And you associate with adulterers.
    You let your mouth loose in evil
    And you harness your tongue for deceit.”

    My concern, Governor Newsom, is that your own soul lies in grave, eternal peril. “Each one of us will give an account of himself to God” (Romans 14:12). One day, not very long from now, you will face that reality. Nothing is more certain. “It is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment” (Hebrews 9:27). You will stand in the presence of the Holy God who created you, who is your Judge, and He will demand that you give an account for how you have flouted His authority in your governing, and how you have twisted His own Holy Word to rationalize it. As you look over the precipice of eternity, what will your answer be? When you look ahead of you and see that nothing awaits you but eternal misery—the just punishment for your sins—what will all the clever rationalizations and political talking points avail for you then? And by then it will be too late for any remedy or redemption. “It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God” (Hebrews 10:31).

    My plea to you, Sir, is that you would not let it come to that—that you would not go to that day of judgment apart from receiving forgiveness and righteousness through faith in Christ alone. In Psalm 50, after rebuking the wicked for uttering God's words in a profane way, Scripture makes this promise: “Now consider this, you who forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there will be none to deliver. He who offers a sacrifice of thanksgiving glorifies Me; and he who orders his way, I shall show the salvation of God” (vv. 22–23).

    So there is salvation for those who repent. Christ purchased full redemption for all who will turn from wickedness, forsake their evil thoughts and actions, and trust fully in Him as Lord and Savior.

    Our church, and countless Christians nationwide, are praying for your full repentance. Please respond to the gospel, forsake the path of wickedness you have pursued all your life, turn to Christ, ask for forgiveness, and use your office to advance the cause of righteousness (as is your duty) instead of undermining it (as has been your pattern).

    Seek the LORD while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the LORD, and He will have compassion on him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon (Isaiah 55:6–7).

    Governor Newsom, “now is the acceptable time, behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2).

  • Good day brothers and sisters. We have now entered the autumn season and at sundown Sunday night we begin Rosh Hashanah, or the Jewish New Year and ten days of repentance before Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement and theses 10 days are known as Yamim Noraim, or the Days of Awe. This is a time to reflect over your actions of the previous year and to seek atonement. Our atonement is found in the Lord Yeshua, Jesus Christ. Happy New Year! Enjoy some apples dipped in honey! Start your new year with a clean slate. Now what does the Smart Book have for us today?
    1 Timothy 6:6-19 Amplified Bible
    6 But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment [that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God]. 7 For we have brought nothing into the world, so [it is clear that] we cannot take anything out of it, either. 8 But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. 9 But those who [are not financially ethical and] crave to get rich [with a compulsive, greedy longing for wealth] fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction [leading to personal misery]. 10 For the love of money [that is, the greedy desire for it and the willingness to gain it unethically] is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves [through and through] with many sorrows.
    11 But as for you, [a]O man of God, flee from these things; aim at and pursue righteousness [true goodness, moral conformity to the character of God], godliness [the fear of God], faith, love, steadfastness, and gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of the faith [in the conflict with evil]; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and [for which] you made the good confession [of faith] in the presence of many witnesses. 13 I solemnly charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and [in the presence] of Christ Jesus, who made the good confession [in His testimony] before Pontius Pilate, 14 to keep all His precepts without stain or reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 which He will bring about in His own time—He who is the blessed and only Sovereign [the absolute Ruler], the King of those who reign as kings and Lord of those who rule as lords, 16 He alone possesses immortality [absolute exemption from death] and lives in unapproachable light, whom no man has ever seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal power and dominion! Amen.
    17 As for the rich in this present world, instruct them not to be conceited and arrogant, nor to set their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly and ceaselessly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. 18 Instruct them to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous, willing to share [with others]. 19 In this way storing up for themselves the enduring riches of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.
    As we enter this New Year let’s set our hearts on the Lord and not the riches this world has to offer. Let’s set our eyes upon eternity!
    The Lord bless and keep you, His face shine upon you,

  • Good day brothers and sisters. Praise the Lord that we have come to the Third Sunday of September and that the harvest is in and for the beautiful Palouse, it was a great harvest indeed. Now let’s see what the Lord has for us from His Smart Book;
    A Call to Prayer
    2 First of all, then, I urge that petitions (specific requests), prayers, intercessions (prayers for others) and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all people, 2 for [a]kings and all who are in [positions of] high authority, so that we may live a peaceful and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. 3 This [kind of praying] is good and acceptable and pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who [b]wishes all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge and recognition of the [divine] truth. 5 For there is [only] one God, and [only] one Mediator between God and mankind, the Man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself as a ransom [a substitutionary sacrifice to atone] for all, the testimony given at the right and proper time. 7 And for this matter I was appointed a preacher and an apostle—I am telling the truth, I am not lying [when I say this]—a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
    Here we have Paul the Apostle Urging us to pray and intercede for others and to thank God for His blessings on behalf of everyone. We are urged to pray for our Governments leaders and for anyone of high authority for that matter so that we may live peaceful, quiet lives in all godliness and dignity.
    Boy we sure could use some peaceful quiet lives right now. I would say that we need to earnestly pray for that.
    God finds this kind of prayer good and acceptable to Him. He truly desires for everyone to choose salvation through His Son Yeshua (Jesus Christ). Yeshua is the Mediator for us between God and us. He, Yeshua, gave Himself as a ransom, a sacrifice to atone, for all of us. So, we need to be praying for the salvation of those who haven’t yet chosen God.
    The Lord Bless and Keep you, His Face shine upon you,

  • Matthew
    Chapter 15
    1Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,

    2Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.

    3But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?

    4For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.

    5But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;

    6And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.

    7Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,

    8This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.

    9But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

    10And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:

    11Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.

    12Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?

    13But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.

    14Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

    15Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable.

    16And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?

    17Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?

    18But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.

    19For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

    20These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.

    21Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.

    22And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.

    23But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.

    24But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

    25Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.

    26But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.

    27And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.

    28Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

    29And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there.

    30And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them:

    31Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.

    32Then Jesus called his disciples unto him, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way.

    33And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude?

    34And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes.

    35And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground.

    36And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.

    37And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full.

    38And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children.

    39And he sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came into the coasts of Magdala.
    Matthew Chapter 15 1Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying, 2Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. 3But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? 4For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death. 5But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; 6And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. 7Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, 8This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 10And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: 11Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man. 12Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying? 13But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. 14Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind.

And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. 24But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 25Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. 26But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs. 27And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table. 28Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour. 29And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there. 30And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them: 31Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel. 32Then Jesus called his disciples unto him, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way. 33And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude? 34And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes. 35And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. 36And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. 37And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full. 38And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children. 39And he sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came into the coasts of Magdala.

    Chapter 14
    1At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus,

    2And said unto his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.

    3For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife.

    4For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee to have her.

    5And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.

    6But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.

    7Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask.

    8And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist's head in a charger.

    9And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath's sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given her.

    10And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.

    11And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the damsel: and she brought it to her mother.

    12And his disciples came, and took up the body, and buried it, and went and told Jesus.

    13When Jesus heard of it, he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities.

    14And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.

    15And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals.

    16But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.

    17And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.

    18He said, Bring them hither to me.

    19And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.

    20And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.

    21And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.

    22And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.

    23And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.

    24But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.

    25And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.

    26And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.

    27But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.

    28And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.

    29And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

    30But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

    31And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

    32And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.

    33Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.

    34And when they were gone over, they came into the land of Gennesaret.

    35And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased;

    36And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.

    Ephesians 6:10 - 6:18

    10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

    11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

    12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

    13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

    14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

    15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

    16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

    17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

    18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
