Thorns in Your Sides Part 1


Sermon notes of Pastor Don Elmore

May 17, 2015

Scripture Reading: 2 Chronicles 28:1-4

Have you ever had a thorn in your side?  Do you remember how it felt?  It didn’t feel good.  It was painful and hindered your ability to move.  The solution was not to do anything; but you had to find a way to get the thorn removed.

There are many instances since this warning was issued that the thorns have pierced the sides of the Israelites.  Like the individual, they proved very painful to Israel.  The Canaanite/Edomite was originally destined to be completely destroyed.  But Israel failed in their attempt to destory them, as they left some of them around.  God provided “the drawing of lots” to have Israel inherit the former land of the Canaanites, but gave them their warning about the survivors being “thorns in your side.”  

Will the Real Israel Please Stand Up? by Jim Jester

How Christians are Robbed of Their Heritage

By James N. Jester

Will The Real Israel Please Stand Up! Patriots, TEA partiers, and all Christians will find this book of interest. This Third Edition (2015) includes corrections and additions throughout the book. Chapter 10 was added, along with additional material, including pictures. Available at Amazon. Contact the author for bulk orders at cedarridgenorth@yahoo.


What can we do about the decline of the Christian west? Like the ancient Israelites in Egypt, Americans are simply slaves driven by the taskmasters to produce more with less. The author exposes some little known history of our ancestors and shows the path to regain our liberty. This book is “the rest of the story” and it should give Christians the basic principles needed to understand who they are, where they are going, and what is going on in the world. A primer into Christian Identity in a blend of history, politics and theology. You will never view the Bible the same after reading this book. A must read for Christians and Patriots who wonder what happened to a Christian nation.
