TRIBUTE MESSAGE to LEAMON (NUB) EDWARDS

5-24-2015 “OUR MAKER, LAW-GIVER, JUDGE and KING!” Isa 33:22


As we as a Nation take time this weekend to remember all of our fallen soldiers, whom gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom’s and liberty’s, let us also remember that our Creator God  gave us both those freedom’s and the soldiers who protect them.
In today’s message Bro. Leo shows us from the Scriptures exactly what happens to nations/cultures who reject God and take pride in their sins.  The Bible gives us a history of God judging cultures for pride in sin, haughtiness and arrogance.   As Christians, we had better heed these warnings and take a real stand for God and His truth’s before we end up the next Nation in history that received God’s judgement.

Scriptures used in today’s message:

Psa 75:6 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
Psa 75:7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

Psa 127:1 A Song of degrees for Solomon. Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

Jas 4:12 There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?

Eze 16:49 Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.
Eze 16:50 And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.

Jud 1:5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
Jud 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
Jud 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

2Pe 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
2Pe 2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
2Pe 2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;

 

 

 

 

5-17-2015 “THE LORD IS MY MAKER : GOD’S FIRST TRUTH!” Gen. 1:1a


In today’s message Bro. Leo explains how and why Satan is using the Sodomite’s,  Abortionist’s,  Evolutionist”s and Socialist’s to attack God and His truth’s.

It is and has always been Satan’s goal to change God’s truth into lies (Gen. 3:4-5).  Now Satan is using the Evolutionist’s to try to change God’s truth of creation into a lie (Gen. 1:1, John 1:1-3).   Believing the lie of evolution allows folks to disregard God as their creator and therefore their moral authority, which is where the Sodomites enter into the equation.  Without God’s moral authority the Sodomites are free to invent their own truth (Sodomite marriage) and worship themselves instead of our Creator God (Rom. 1:25-28).  Here is a recent example of folks creating their own truth, from an article in The Tennessean newspaper http://www.tennessean.com/story/life/family/2015/05/07/sparkle-josh-husband-reaffirm-vows-music-city/26934677/ .
“For us, standing up there, that was our truth and that is truth,” Johnson said. “Everyone who was there, everyone who sees a picture, they will get to see a snapshot of the real thing, the truth that we are, and it didn’t matter where it happened. It was going to happen, and we were going to be who God created us to be, together. And that is what we really wanted to reflect. We are just like everyone else, and the people who showed up for the event are the people who have been on the journey with us. It was a celebration of the truth.”

Live and let live is another of Satan’s lies that the Sodomites use.  They continue to tell us that if two consenting adults are not hurting anyone then whatever they are doing is ok, but in reality this is not their goal.  Their goal is to force everyone to believe what they are doing is ok and for everyone to accept their actions.  From the same Tennessean article above, we read their goal.
“It feels different in our interaction with other people,” Popham said. “For instance, when we went into a store yesterday, the salesperson asked if she could help me and I said I was waiting for my husband. Prior to getting married, I wouldn’t be able to say that, so it validates it and gives it some credibility. And that was really the only thing lacking for us, that validation.”

Disregarding God as our creator also enables the Abortionist’s to murder babies.  These folks worship themselves and have no regard for God’s creation or His moral authority.  They spew the lie that an embryo is not life and this is “their self made truth”.  Our Creator God’s truth (absolute truth) can be found in Psa 139:13-16,  Jer 1:5.

Here is an example of the Socialist’s changing our Creator God’s truth into a lie, “The German Federal Constitutional Court earlier ruled that being able to legally identify as one’s “deeply felt and lived” gender is a personal right.”  http://www.autostraddle.com/binary-or-blank-germany-allows-parents-to-refrain-from-gender-assignment-at-birth-191097/
The absolute truth can be found in God’s Word, Mat 19:4 and this is why no matter what I call myself my DNA will always be what God created me as.

Being our Creator God affords God the right and authority to instruct us morally and judge us.  Because He is our creator, God instructs us for our own good out of love for us.  Just as a parent instructs their child, because the parent knows and wants what is best for the child, God instructs us (His children) to preserve us in the best life we can possibly have.  Satan, on the other hand, wants to destroy us to a life of condemnation.

Rom 14:10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
Rom 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

5-10-2015 “GOD MY MAKER” John 1:1-3


In today’s message Bro. Leo does a great job of explaining, through the scriptures,  the American culture’s attack on God and His absolute truth’s and why.   Satan, the father of all lies, is waging these attacks on God with these three methods; 1) Evolution theory – denies God’s revelation of Himself through creation.  2) Abortion – man worships himself instead of God ( a woman should be able to decide what to do to her own body, even if it means murdering an unborn child).  3)  Sodomite marriage – changes God’s truth of marriage being between a man and a woman, which is to say God you are wrong and man has a much better definition of marriage.
The American culture is no longer fears the judgement of God and therefore is buying the lie of Satan when he says surely you will not die if you _?  The Christians in America that are not taking a firm stand for God’s absolute truth’s must not fear God or they simply do not have God’s truth in them and therefore are just proclaiming to be Christians.  God is our maker and we are held accountable to Him.

5-3-2015 “WHAT IS TRUTH?” part 2, John 18:38


In today’s message Bro. Leo explains the absolute truth, which is the Word of God, and the actual reason why our culture today is promoting sodomite marriage and infant murder.  The absolute truth is that our Creator God did just that, He created us and everything else that is created.  The absolute truth is that Jesus is God in the flesh.  The absolute truth is that there is no other way to God except through Jesus.  The absolute truth is that God created marriage as a union between a man and a woman.  The absolute truth is that life begins at conception.  Knowing these absolute truth’s we can see that today’s culture is in direct rebellion against God when they demand that the law of the land legitimize by legalizing sins such as abortion, sodomite marriage and the theory of evolution.

Unfortunately much of the American Church is guilty of turning a blind eye to these issues and even some are promoting them.   The absolute truth is that there will be a day that each member of the Church will stand before Jesus and be held accountable for their actions as well as their inaction’s.  I myself would much rather take a firm stand for God’s absolute truth against the world today than to stand and make an account of my not taking a stand in front of Jesus who hung on the cross because of my sins (Rom 14:12).
