IT IS FINISHED

When Jesus said 'It is finished' just before he died, it was really just the beginning. It was the end of his earthly service as a man. He had done all he was asked to do by God.  He was taking all of our sins with him to the grave, actually to hell. He suffered and died that we might have life, if we so choose. It was finished, done. We now had the way to life in heaven. The price had been paid. He was dead on his way to the tomb with my sin, and yours. It was finished. On the third day he arose from the tomb and walked here on earth for forty days. He again lived here and now he sits on thr right hand of God the father. It was finished that day on the cross making a new beginning for us. If we confess Jesus as Lord and ask him into our life, sin is finished for us too. Not sure about all this.  Contact us, go to your local pastor or someone you know that is an active believer. Don't miss out on life's greatest gift. Then on Easter morning you can also shout out 'He is risen' The good part is that one day you will be also. HAPPY EASTER  He is risen indeed!

EAT MORE "CHICKIN"

A few weeks ago, AFA alerted you to an attack by homosexual activists against the Christian-owned Chick-fil-A company. In February, a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Pennsylvania donated some sandwiches and brownies to a marriage seminar hosted by the Pennsylvania Family Institute. Because the seminar promoted marriage as between one man and one woman, pro-homosexual activists launched an all-out attack on Chick-fil-A. Some started calling the company's main product 'Jesus Chicken,' while others mocked and belittled the company's 'Not Open on Sunday' policy. They even smeared company employees, calling them 'anti-gay.' Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy built a 1500-restaurant chain on his 'personal and business philosophy based on biblical principles.' Something else you may not know: Chick-fil-A plays Christian music in its restaurants...exclusively. Chick-fil-A closes all its locations on Sunday...no exceptions. Chick-fil-A's stated corporate purpose is: 1) To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us; and 2) To have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A.

The Michigan State Police have a high-tech mobile forensics device that can be used to extract information from cell phones belonging to motorists stopped for minor traffic violations. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Michigan last Wednesday demanded that state officials stop stonewalling freedom of information requests for information on the program. ACLU learned that the police had acquired the cell phone scanning devices and in August 2008 filed an official request for records on the program, including logs of how the devices were used. The state police responded by saying they would provide the information only in return for a payment of $544,680. The ACLU found the charge outrageous. 'Law enforcement officers are known, on occasion, to encourage citizens to cooperate if they have nothing to hide,' ACLU staff attorney Mark P. Fancher wrote. 'No less should be expected of law enforcement, and the Michigan State Police should be willing to assuage concerns that these powerful extraction devices are being used illegally by honoring our requests for cooperation and disclosure.'

BOB WEIKERT REMEMBERED

(PORT ROYAL SPEEDWAY) When fans file into Port Royal Speedway to take part in the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints Bob Weikert Memorial on April 30, they’ll be lucky enough to see a blast from the past circle the track. As part of a conjoined effort between Weikert’s Livestock, the Weikert family and current car owner Jesse Keen, fans will get to see the famed, legendary Weikert’s Livestock No. 29 circle the track just one more time. When sprint car racing is talked about for generations to come, Bob Weikert will be fondly remembered. Bob had some of the best 'shoes' from all over the country pilot the famous #29.  I can fondly remember racing against and usually following the beautiful blue and white Weikert car. One night during a 100 lap event at Jennerstown Speedway we were refueling during the half way stop. We were full and had a jug left over. Bob ran over and ask if he could buy it as they were out and the cars were beginning to push off. We handed him the jug and he left to top off his car. After the feature he came over and handed me a fifty dollar bill. I was still in my uniform and told him I couldn't change it at the time. He said he didn'

COME BACK STORY

We all like a good come back story. Maybe the guy that starts on the tail out of the 'B' and wins the feature. Could be the one that crashes hard in the heat and finishes the 'A' in the top five.  It could even be the little kid in youth baseball, the smallest one on the team, that gets the winning hit after striking out in his previous two at bats. We just like a good come back story. This week we get to celebrate the greatest come back story of all time.  A fellow was beaten in the street, then hung on a tree till he died then he came back, really. On the third day after the medical examiner pronounced him dead, he came back and walked among us. He had done this 'back from the dead thing' for others but this time he did it for himself. I feel as though I should give him a gift or something but he says all he wants is that I would be his friend and believe in him. He says he really cares about me and wants me to spend eternity with him. He has gone to prepare a place for me. What a come back. He gets to spend his eternal life beside his father, God Almighty. He has offered me a place in the same community. Ya know you just can't pass on a deal like that. He says he h

CHUCK NORRIS STILL HARD HITTING

EXCERPTS FROM (Freedom Times) RECENT ARTICLE   BY CHUCK NORRIS   I warned last year of the perfect storm looming on gun control. Now, with the Tucson tragedy as a stepping stone, and with eyes firmly focused on his re-election, the president has finally opened a campaign to appease his base on the polarizing issue of gun control. Let me completely disclose my position: I am a strong Second Amendment advocate. I believe in protecting our fundamental rights, including our Second Amendment rights, through the political process. To that end, I serve as honorary chairman of the 'Trigger The Vote' voter registration campaign. That campaign is funded by the NRA's Freedom Action Foundation. We work in every election cycle to register gun owners and hunters to vote and add them to the ranks of millions of grassroots voters who have established Second Amendment issues as the new 'third rail' of American politics. Those voters, and the newly registered voters we can add to their ranks between now and then, will have the job cut out for them in the 2012 election cycle. The 2012 re-election now looms large for this administration. Even while the pres

WEATHER ADDS TO STRUGGLES

Hey, it's an outdoor sport so weather is going to wreck things on occasion. This spring has been tough however, and this weekend is no exception. Much of the south, mid-west and east will be washed out. It is wide spread enough that in most cases you can't head in another direction and find a place to run. Many teams are on the edge financially and need every night of competition they can get. Keeping sponsors happy, paying the bills and limiting travel expenses are all major considerations of every team. Equipment in the trailer accomplishes none of this. Here in Florida, we have been the exception but I am sure our turn is coming. In all the years that I did this, it seemed that every season was full of challenges all of which were threats to our survival. This season however could sideline a lot of teams with some hanging it up for good. In short, I feel our sport is under a serious threat from inflation, fuel prices and the lack of many a fan to have the ability to finance a racing weekend. The weather will eventually improve but concerted effort to ruin our economy from within appears to be here for the forseeable future.

Someone has said that if Christians really understood the full extent of the power we have available through prayer, we might be speechless. Did you know that during WWII there was an advisor to Churchill who organized a group of people who dropped what they were doing every day at a prescribed hour for one minute to collectively pray for the safety of England , its people and peace? There is now a group of people organizing the same thing here in America . If you would like to participate: Every evening at 9:00 PM Eastern Time (8:00 PM Central) (7:00 PM Mountain) (6:00 PM Pacific), stop whatever you are doing and spend one minute praying for the safety of the United States, our troops, our citizens, and for a  return to a Godly nation . If you know anyone else who would like to participate, please pass this along. Our prayers are the most powerful asset we have.

Seasoned-veteran, devoted family man, wise mentor and fierce competitor. These are a few of the terms used to describe Joey Saldana. From injuries to near misses, the experiences and knowledge gained since his rookie-of-the-year season in 1996 have taught the 'Brownsburg Bullet' immense lessons on and off the track, and once again he's atop the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship standings entering events on Friday at Paducah (Ky.) International Raceway and Saturday at I-55 Raceway near St. Louis.
