No, we're not talking about poker, or sports. We're talking about the tendency for people to waste their money on drugs, nicotine, alcohol, and other things which only give a temporary satisfaction. God doesn't see, they think to themselves. But, He does see, and He does know. He even knows what you are thinking. Scripture says, " Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. ( Galatians 6:7 )
" For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God. " Romans 10:3
" ...to obey is better than sacrifice... " 1 Samuel 15:22
Have you wondered? Why New Orleans and not Mexico Beach?
Shortly after the attacks on the twin towers on 9/11/2001, I wrote a message for another website in which I warned our nation of impending judgement and pleaded, " Please America, don't make me have to say, 'I told you so.' again. " To read this message, in its entirety, go to:
Attack on America
God's commandments are still in effect. Tossing them out of our schools, and halls of government, and public places, haven't changed their truths, one bit.
In the past, God has used the forces of nature to execute judgement against His people. As " one nation under God ", we are ( or were ) His people.
Satan is just as real as God. Satan has enticed our rulers, and educators, to substitute the pseudo-scientific theory of evolution, for the true God and Creator, Jesus Christ.

Satan has accused our nation of immorality and idolatry. Since his accusations are, in many cases true, God had no choice but to remove His hand of protection that was over us. This is why Hurricane Katrina was allowed to devastate one of our major sities, and what could be argued as our most important seaport. We weep and wail over our loss, but we brought this devastation on ourselves.
This time we cannot blame the terrorists, or some other enemies of America. We can complain about the ways in which various levels of government failed to prepare for this disaster, or failed to respond as quickly as needed. But, we ourselves, are the ones who need to accept the blame.
We are not the first society to fall under God's judgement, and probably won't be the last. Many cultures have faced what we face today. Some of those cultures repented of their evil ways and turned to God, delaying judgement for many years. Others neglected the warnings, and their entire civilizations crumbled, and became relics of the past.
The answer is found in II Chronicles 7:14,- " If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn away from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and heal their land. "
There is much talk about a return to normal. That is the worst thing that could happen, because "normal" means a return to sin, to the misuse of God's wonderful gift of sexuality, to Hollywood and the media corrupting our society with violence, blasphemy against God, and enticing our children into sexual immorality. To them " normal " means accepting the practice of " living together ", in other words, fornication, the murder of infants, and homosexuality as ok, even though God calls these practices sinful and abominations. To try to hide the evil, new words have been invented,- abortion, diversity, etc.
" Normal " means continuing to teach our children lies about the earth's history, and calling it science. " Normal " means using God's name in vain, and allowing vulgar language on TV, and keeping our society in ignorance of God, and ignorance of the entire spiritual realm.
To those of us who read our Bibles, and understand the spiritual realm, the biggest question about the events of September 11, and Hurricane Katrina, is why they didn't happen sooner.
September 11, and Hurricane Katrina, are just glimpses of what will happen if God totally removes His hand of protection from America. If America repents of its wickedness, we will be protected. If not, this is just the beginning of the end of America.
What will it be, citizens of America,- judgement or blessing? Please, don't make me have to say," I told you so " again.
Our Sunday AM services are being held at the Mexico Beach Civic Center. In accordance with federal laws, we have permission to use this heated, and air conditioned, facility on Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM central time. We begin with a short time of greeting and fellowship, and then TJ leads us in worship. After the service we have holy communion, a time when people can request prayer, especially for healing, and sometimes, a pot luck luncheon.
The Mexico Beach Civic Center is located at 105 N. 31st Street. It is the white building with the dark green roof, which is just behind that new Mexico Beach restaurant, Mango Marley's. It is behind Parker Realty, and is on the northeast side of Rte 98. It is about 7/10 mile south of the Mexico Beach Welcome Center.
