9.  The American Dream versus the American Nightmare.

NOTE on the American Dream from Dictionary.com
preliminary to this ninth newsletter:
1.  the ideals of freedom, equality, and opportunity traditional
held to be available to every American.
2.  a life of personal happiness and material comfort as
traditional sought by individuals in the U.S.

While the American Christian can support completely the first
definition, obviously for the Christian American the second
must be modified to include:
1.  the secret to real happiness as given by Jesus in the
Sermon on the Mount, "the blessed or happy"s if you recall
2.  Pastor James teachings in the book of James on a Biblical
and Christian attitude toward the rich, toward having riches and
wealth, and toward those who would desire success and
wealth.

10.  Peter on "Refreshing" and "Restoration".

Sources
(1) Peter's second sermon, at the Temple, with the initial
annoucements that "times of refreshing from the presence of
the Lord" will exist in Christian history up to "the restoration of
all things."  (Acts 3:49-51)
(2)  More details about this period of history called the "last
days" from Peters first sermon, Acts 2:14-39.
(3)  The NT book, I Peter, written on the human side by the
Apostle Peter.
(4)  Refreshing and restoration continued in II Peter.

11.  Churches of the Bible belt, "Repent and be converted".

"Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be
blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the
presence of the Lord, and that He may send Jesus Christ who
was preached to you before {note below at **}, whom heaven
must receive until the times of restoration of all things..." (Acts
3:19-21)

**NOTE:  Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ of Refreshing
Evangelism, the Jesus of both times of refreshing and the
Second Coming with the restoration of all things.  If you are
confused or mixed up here, you can also be on such
fundamentals as the Gospel.

12.  Salvation is the Most Obvious Time of Refreshing.
13.  Gospel Pride over "Pride of Life" is for the Glory of
God.

NOTE:  Gospel Pride has two aspects:  (1) as humans we
exhibit it as we believe in our hearts and confess with our
mouth the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 10:9,10); and (2) then
God is not ashamed of us, providing salvation and more
(Romans 10:11)

14.  Do you Know the Lord Jesus Christ of "times of
refreshing" and the end {and Second Coming} with the
"restoration of all things"?

NOTE:  If you doctrine is not sound on both the times of
refreshing and the restoration of all things with the Second
Coming of Christ, there is a good chance that also your
doctrine of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ is unsound.

15.  Repentance and Conversion Dies to Self.
16.  "Even so, Come, Lord Jesus".  (Revelation 22:20)
17.  Assaults on Truth are Assaults on American Heritage
and Integrity.

"And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make
you free."  (John 8:32)

9.  Courage of Convictions Is Sound Doctrine.

NOTE:  There is a new movement afloat in
American cities in the nature of "Up with
People", and probably from social workers
and educators, called " Kindness Matters".  
Sort of like the Scout laws and good PR, it
does matter; but Courage of Convictions
trumps kindness!

10.  Refreshing Evangelism (the spiritual) at
Sandy Hook.

NOTE:  Oh hurting one, when you see
this beloved child or loved one in the
arms of Jesus after either death or the
Second Coming, all these tears and
griefs will be wiped away!

“And God will wipe away every tear from
their eyes; there shall be no more death,
nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no
more pain, for the former things have
passed away.”  (Revelation 21:4)

In fact, the Bible promises believers that “the
former things will be remembered no more”.  
Granted Sandy Hook, one of the most
painful aspect of this tragedy is the horrible
memories that will not go away; but just
imagine the eternity where such memories
will be remembered no more.

NOTE:  I bet you can’t get your secular
psychologist or most advisors and
counselors to say “You will not
remember this tragedy in eternity,
goodness you will have this precious
child in your arms in your permament
new home, made by God, on the new
earth.
