A Messianic School of the Bible

The Emmaus Walk offers courses on Genesis to Revelation highlighting Messianic texts and Types of Christ. Aimed at ordinary people (such as ourselves!), to help reveal the core Messianic meaning of the Bible, which is the very reason for the existence of the authoritative Word of God, eternal and everlasting.


WORLD'S GREATEST BOOK CAN BE UNDERSTOOD IF GIVEN A CHANCE: Beyond question, the greatest book in the world is the Bible, and the greatest Book is about the greatest Person, Jesus Christ (Yeshua the Anointed).

Friend, are you unable to read the Bible, that is, make sense of it? Or do some parts make sense, but others, such as Leviticus or Revelation or Romans seem totally bewildering? Are you desiring to go deeper, or reach a higher ground, spiritually, but your difficulty in comprehending scripture is holding you back? It may well be you need to consider that the Bible is essentially Messianic--that is, it exists to tell you about the Messiah and Savior, and virtually everything in the Bible points to Him. With this understanding, you are on your way to unlocking the scriptures and opening the door to Yeshua--for they are, in truth, a living Person, Jesus (Yeshua), who delights in His Name, the Word (John 1:1: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."

The Books of the Bible


I am the Bible.

I am God's wonderful library.

I make known to all, Him who is Truth.

To the weary pilgrim, I am a good, strong staff.

To the one who sits in black gloom, [like the Dalit or Untouchable in India, or the drug or porn addict or the victim of abuse or neglect, or the tortured Christian in Laos or China or Burma or Nepal, or the Sudanese Christian slave abducted from Darfur] I am glorious light.

To those who stoop beneath many burdens, I am sweet rest.

To him who has lost his way, I am a safe guide.

To those who have been hurt by sin, I am healing balm.

To the discouraged, I whisper a glad message of hope.

To those who are distressed by the storms of life,

I am an anchor, sure and steadfast.

To those who suffer in lonely solitude,

I am as a cool, soft hand resting on a fevered brow.

Oh, child of man, to best defend me, JUST USE ME.

The Bible is God's road map as you travel through life.--from Faith Magazine, Author Unknown

The history and discovery of the Essene Scrolls is so important for our Christian faith and their role in Christian apologetics is so foundational that we have a whole page devoted to them, and we will be adding new material from time to time:

"Essene Scrolls Center

THE MESSIANIC SCROLL IS AVAILABLE! Zola Levitt Ministries has available a most wonderful Messianic Scroll, giving Messianic prophecies from the Old Testament (the Torah) along with the Fulfilments in the New Testament.


The Bible's Messianic Texts are thus named because they are passages in scripture that point specifically to the Messiah, Yeshua (Jesus in Gentile terminology). Foremost in consideration of these texts, Christ Himself chose it when conducting an informal Bible class with two distraught and troubled disciples who had left Jerusalem just after the crucifixion and were on their way to Emmaus, a village seven miles from the Holy City. This spiritual trek inspired the logo graphic at the top of our home page, and in Judaea in the time of Jesus (see the map) Emmaus is near the bottom, located close by Jerusalem.

What man gives, he can also take away--and believe history, people will take away your rights if they can to increase their own power over you! The U.S. Congress once acknowledged the Bible as the foundation of our Christian nation and its values--but no more! They have rejected the Bible in the U.S. Congress, and the Senate Majority leader, Harry Reid, last week had a Hindu chaplain come from Reno, Nevada and give the opening prayer in the names of his Hindu gods!

The secular humanist Congress in charge now has retracted the U.S. Congress's former praiseworthy, truthful endorsement of Christian faith and the Bible as the cornerstone of our American nation, government, and way of life. With the Democrats in Congress leading, the Congress of our country is now busy throwing out God, the Bible, and Christian values! If you, as a Christian and citizen, know about pending bills in Congress (not to mention many state legislatures), you will know that we are in grave danger of losing our most fundamental rights and liberties. In the following Article 1 (which was adopted to be the First Amendment of the Constitution), we are told what they are:

Article 1, Bill of Rights:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press; or of the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

Congress now is breaking this Article, which is the Cornerstone of our freedoms and liberties under law in this land. Congress is purposely respecting the establishment of a religion, which it has declared secularist humanism to be, favoring this religion above all other religions. This is the religion presently dominant in the schools, courts, and even the government--supplanting Christian faith and religion. This is undeniable--as Evolutionary Theory, Tolerance, Diversity, Separation of Church and State, Multiculturalism, are some main tenets of its creed. These are all being preached and promoted and forced on the whole society with funding by tax monies.

Second, Congress is prohibiting the free exercise of religion, namely the Christian religion, by many laws or adherence to unconstitutional court rulings or actively hostile government interference and harrassment by government agencies, such as the IRS (which is a favored punitive arm of certain known presidential administrations and the White House against dissenters and critics in the Christian churches).

Third, Congress has greviously trampled on Article 1 by abridging the freedom of speech by passing and considering many bills against Christian observances and traditions in public spheres, that are known to be an integral part of our nation's founding and a cause of its unparalleled blessing by Almighty God.

Fourth, Congress is jeopardizing the freedom of the people peaceably to assemble, as it allows the enforcement of laws governing the peace to be continually usurped by special interest groups and activists for special rights for homosexuals vis a vis the Christian community and the Christian churches. The peaceable assemblies of Christians are often disturbed, while the perpetrators of disruption are not punished by the officers of the law but allowed to disturb the public peace outside the church doors while advising the church members to remain quiet, closeted and sequestered, in effect, while their assaulters enjoy free rein.

Fifth, Article 1, to be upheld, must allow for the Christians to petition Congress to make full redress of their grievances. Yet Congress routinely, cavalierly, ignores Christians, its Senators and Representatives passing bills that defame, belittle, marginalize, and otherwise disenfranchise and separate Christians from the mainstream of society and government circles, while favoring and granting special privileges to secular humanists, or atheists, and Muslims, at the expense of Christians, who cannot find any similar favor at the hands of Congress, simply because they are Christians.

For these reasons, we hold Congress to be acting in defiance of the First Article of the Bill of Rights, through badly conceived laws, and through purposed new bills proscribing so-called "hate speech," particularly through laws prohibiting the free exercise of pastors and teachers in the Christian churches, through laws making it a crime to read certain portions of the Holy Scriptures, the Bible, which particularly identify and condemn homosexuality as immorality, a perversion which God states in His Word the Bible that He hates and abominates, and which no Christian who reveres the Bible can approve or justify, no matter how much government approves or justifies it.

Whereas the First Article has been broken by Congress most greviously and deliberately and repeatedly, we hold the Senate, the House, and the Speaker of the House altogether responsible for the conscious, deliberate abrogation and destruction of Article 1, and charge these high government bodies, with all their members, to cease and decist immediately from this wrongful behavior.

Not merely this, but Congress must retract, withdraw, annul all its laws that are unconstitutional, which, purposely or not purposely, make the First Article of the Bill of Rights null and void or, at the least, compromise its meanings.

Not only this, but Congress must apologize, publicly, in a body, to the American people for its crimes against the rights of the people of America, as it has pursued a treacherous, dangerous path of wreaking havoc with the meaning, intention, observance, and enforcement of the First Article in innumerable acts, bills, lack of enforcement, neglect, disdain, and pride.

We charge the Congress with all these serious crimes against the Bill of Rights and the Constitution and the American People, not to mention the members of the historic Christian faith, because this Article speaks to our most cherished and treasured and fundamental liberties, the very ones for which the Pilgrim Fathers and the Puritan Fathers of this our nation journeyed with great hazard by ship, sacrificing property and even their lives, to gain a new life in this land, so that, utilizing that new life, they might be free to worship and preach the inerrant Word of God, the Holy Bible, according to their Christian faith and the dictates of their consciences, without government interference or the interference and intimidation of any other bodies, religious or governmental.

In conclusion, the gross dereliction of Congress and its hostility toward the Christian faith can be explained by pointing out its basic misunderstanding and belittling and slighting of the central, foundational ground of being and focus of the Christian religion--to wit, traditional and historic Christianity has always meant, not a religion or any philosophy, but a real, living Person, namely, Jesus Christ. To outlaw the naming of Jesus Christ in the prayers of military chaplains, for example, through military regulations (as in the case of Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt, given below in a following note), or even government laws and regulations, is to annihilate Christianity, to pass sentence of death on Christian faith. All the other aspects are trappings, and are expendable, but Christ the Lord, Jesus, cannot be given up, and His Name is the Same as His Person--He cannot be separated from his Name, by using the generic word, "God" or "Deity," for that is shown to be a specious, false handling of the Christian God, if you forbid or proscribe the use of Jesus Christ, Who as the Second Person of the Trinity is God. Besides all this, Scripture teaches that His Name is above all other names in heaven and earth. To defy the Christian faith by forbidding or limiting the use of the name, Jesus Christ, which is a name of God, Congress or the military is committing an act of war against the Christian Faith, its practicioners, and also an act of war against Jesus Christ Who is God, the great I Am. This act of war is born of an anti-Christ spirit and is most grevious to God, who will defend His Son, Jesus, Who is rightfully the Supreme Power in rule over all the inhabitants, nations, and governments and rulers of earth. This must be repented of if this U.S. Congress is to avert the wrath of Almighty God, and the imminent destruction of this nation that such an act will inevitably incur.

If we as Christians who happen to be American sit idly by any longer, we will lose everything our forefathers bequeathed to us that we enjoy and cherish--life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness will be no longer possible for us and our descendants, as we are deprived of our God-given rights and our rightful positions in the mainstream of this society. Secular humanists have pursued the aim of marginalizing Christians in this country, and so they claim that Christians have no right entering into politics and government with Christian beliefs, yet they see no contradiction in their promoting their secular humanist beliefs when they gain public offices of all kinds! This is the kind of intimidation tactic used by secular humanists we must never allow to influence us. Before anyone else, we Christians have a traditional, foundational right to operate freely in the public sphere and in the U.S. government--as we created this free, republican and representative, divided-power, three-branches of government system in the first place. Secular humanists did not create America (they cannot create anything worthwhile; they took the treasure of the ages by stealth, then proceeded to totally change and overturn America, supplanting a free America with their own secular humanist authoritarian state run by corrupt, money-worshipping, power-drunk elites and oligarchies. We of the grass roots--ordinary, freedom-loving, work-ethic respecting, limited government,God-fearing Jewish and Christian people--must stop them! We must make an all-out effort now as Christians and Jews together, by faith, by love, by exercising our responsibility as citizens. Otherwise, there will soon be no America worth saving and fighting for when our enemies come in force to plunder and destroy us, with weapons we paid for with our own passivity, self-absorption, inattention to current crises, and petro-dollars. Jews who know America's worth and uniqueness support a Christian America's heritage and foundations--the others do not even defend Israel and allow Israel to be sold to its enemies "for peace." Such Jews are no Jews at all. They even support abortions for Jewish people--which God abominates, since it is the murder of His own Chosen People and their future. But true Jews are Christians, who know their Jewish roots, and love Israel and their Jewish book, the Bible. Together, Jew and Christian, we can turn the tide, and save this nation from certain destruction at the hand of secular humanists and the Islamic state that is growing on our own soil.

A letter from "Seventy Weeks to Save America" sums up everything said so far very aptly:

"People of faith are openly ridiculed and belitted by those who goal is nothing less than the transformation of our country in their own self-absorbed, atheist-humanist, God-demeaning image. This concerted anti-God bigotry seeks to silence our witness and banish the Lord from the public square.

"Isn't it clear that active Christian involvement in civil government is NOT OPTIONAL? It is an essential part of our calling from God to our citizenship vocation, to shine the light of Truth into an ever-darkening culture. It's imperative for God's people to address moral issues while God still stays His hand of deserved judgment upon our nation." (Amen to that--Ed).


As Chaplain Klingenschmitt (on right) states in his joint letter with Alan Keyes and Rick Scarborough, June 29, 2007: "I lost everything when the Navy convicted and then ousted me from mhy career of military service for the crime of praying in Jesus' Name."

The Christians United For Israel (CUFI) founded by Pastor John Hagee of Cornerstone Church and John Hagee Ministries, San Antonio, Texas, has just had a magnificent gathering in Washington, D.C. Today the participants are scheduled to go by the thousands to the Capitol and meet with every single member of Congress in promotion of the values that made our nation great, strong, and free.

Thank God for Pastor Hagee for making this brave stand for Israel, our fine and loyal ally, in a time when anti-Semitism is rising and is rampant in Europe and even now rearing its ugly head in America, in the State Department, and the media, in the universities funded by Arab petro-dollars, and now in the infamous book just issued by former President Jimmy Carter, who has denounced Israel in the most sickening, false way as an "apartheid state" [see the picture and caption below of this anti-Semite Nobel Peace Prize winner and former president].

A large portion of the assembly with speakers' messages was broadcast by Daystar Television; you can access this very intense, exciting, thrilling broadcast by going to Daystar's website. It is possible the program will be featured again. CUFI Founder John Hagee, together with a San Antonio rabbi, Rod Parsley, and the Israeli ambassador to the U.S. were among the main speakers. Former Israeli P.M. Benjamin Netanyahu spoke on a video to the assembly of thousands. Israeli Ambassador Dore gave a tremendous speech, which detailed the greatest threat to Israel, Europe, and America is a nuclear-armed, Islamofascist Iran, whose leader has called for the destruction of Israel, calling Israel "the Little Satan" and America "the Great Satan", with missiles also aimed at European capitals "the Medium-Sized Satan".

America, Ambassador Dore said, will have to move against Iran soon, or we will lose the opportunity to stop Iran's fanatic, Hitler-like ruler before he unleashes nuclear Holocaust on Israel, the U.S. and also Europe the decadent appeaser of dictators. 1938 is being repeated, we were told a number of times, when Britain's prime minister, Neville Chamberlain, seeking peace at any price, gave the crocodile, Hitler, the free nation of Czechoslovakia, which wasn't enough to satisfy him but only whetted his appetite for the rest of Europe.

Neville Chamberlain, the fatally duped fool who trusted crocodiles, went to his grave bemoaning Hitler's failure to live up to his gentleman's agreement, by his breaking of Chamberlain's treaty with him, which he had solemnly believed would keep a crocodile from acting like a crocodile.

Neville Chamberlain did not live in the real world, obviously. He thought: Feed the crocodile one little country, and he would leave the rest of Europe alone! Who cared about Czechoslavakia, a small Eastern European country, so why not sacrifice one country for the good of all?

How mistaken he was! That naive appeasement program of Chamberlain's cost fifty million people their lives, not to mention the lives of 400,000 U.S. soldiers (contrasting with the 3,000 or so U.S. soldiers in the second Iraq War) and hundreds of billions of dollars that could have fed and housed everybody on earth, all squandered for bombs and warfare and later the reconstruction of an almost totally ruined Europe.

What cost a few months of phony peace? Thanks to Chamberlain's stupidity and gross miscalculation of his enemy Hitler nearly cost Britain its very existence as a free country.

This political form of Russian roulette played by Chamberlain with Hitler's gun (sign this treaty with our foe and see if no Nazi bullet is discharged into our skulls!) is paralleled with the current, vociferous, anti-Iraq war bills promoted by Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, Boxer, Feinstein, Adam Smith, Maria Cantwell, and other arch-liberal Democratic appeasers in the U.S. Congress who seek to pull out of Iraq precipitously, leaving Iraq to disintegrate into a bloodbath of sectarian genocide and also to become an incubator for even greater than 9/11 attacks of terrorists upon our homeland.

Just as will happen to us in America if we appease our foes to gain "peace" with them, Britain was nearly made a footnote in history, appended to the history of Nazi German's fascist slave empire. Back in World War II we too could have fallen and become slaves, with millions of Americans thrown into death camps and exterminated if we hadn't been able to overwhelm German's war machine with more bombers and tanks than Hitler could produce. He was working on the A-bomb, at least in its initial phases. What if he had gotten one first? He had the jet, and had developed various experimental prototypes that worked and far surpassed anything we had. He also had a transcontinental missile in development for a time, but scrapped it because it wouldn't come on-line in time. If he had only had more time! Hitler had a list all drawn up of British people to be liquidated after he invaded and conquered the country, so there is no reason why he would not have done the same to us in turn if he had won the war.

Neville Chamberlain's stupendous failure to discern how best to handle a ravenous crocodile such as Herr Hitler nearly destroyed Western Civilization.

Today we have many such men and women as Neville Chamberlain in the U.S. Congress and the U.S. State Department, who have stepped into his shoes and picked up his umbrella, to go and appease the crocodiles of Islam, one after the other--PLO, Fatah, Hamas, Hezbollah, Al Aksa, Al Qaida--the list goes on an on as the Islamic crocodile mutates and proliferates in the stagnant swamps of Islamic states and also secular humanist societies.

We will pay with our freedom, with our national sovereignty, with our future, with our very lives, and the lives of the children, if we do not stop this failed policy of appeasement and do whatever needs to be done economically and, if need be militarily, to crush this mad President of Iran and his program of world-wide terrorism as well as the other forces of Islamic Jehad.

2. I can think of a hundred things at least that God has done for me this past week, but how about you? God's goodness is incredible and bountiful--like a great river. Where is the end of it? You cannot ever find the end of it, and the Source is God, who is inexhaustible in His goodness to us!

Some Bible Resources:

A Gentile Bible is a strange hybrid of Gentile culture attached to a Semite world-view--and the two are vastly dissimilar. Why do I say this? The Bible is a Jewish book. A whole new perspective is gained when you see this, I have found. Gentiles like myself have a very limited view of it if we do not know our Jewish roots in Christianity. Martin Luther translated the Bible into German, and he found he had to make Moses speak like a German--and then he had an even tougher assignment dealing with the book of Job, because the exalted, poetic language of that book surpassed anything hitherto expressed in German. In translation, however good it is, something is lost--and in the case of the Bible, its Jewishness is lost to a Gentile readership that reads only the Gentile translations without any attempt to break through the Gentile culture into the Jewish culture which birthed the Bible. "Mary," for instance, is "Maryam" in Hebrew. "Jesus" is "Y'shua". John is Yohanan. It makes a big difference. A Gentile Jesus completely miscasts him--for he was a Jewish rabbi. He did not look at all like the popular Gentile versions of him in pictures and films with the flowing brown or blond hair and blue eyes! We really need to re-learn the Bible in Jewish terms, for otherwise we miss much that was never meant to be lost.

Can the wicked and foolish acts of our leaders in Washington be causing the terrible storms that are assaulting our coasts and even the Middle Western and Mountain states so frequently? Yes, they are causing at least some of them, I do believe. John McTernan's book will give you statistical and recorded meteological data and proofs that there is a direct correlation between the wickedness of our leaders (Congress and the President) regarding their mistreatment of Israel and our worst storms.

Islam for Christ Center:

If you want the "real scoop" on Islam, not just one person's or one news channel's spin or opinion, subscribe to the Levitt Letter, put out by Zola Levitt Ministries. It is free, and has excellent articles drawn from many sources, as well as articles and responses to letters to the editor by Dr. Self. I can read the articles several times and benefit each time--and you cannot say this about most writing today on current issues. I am saving the Levitt Letter issues, as they give excellent documentation not only on Islam, but the current events that are shaking our nation and the world. Go to Zola Levitt ministries and subscribe--you will find it utterly fascinating and perfectly Christian in spirit. They are exactly what they project, consistently Christian and Jewish--which cannot be said about many Christian personalities and ministries, sad to say. Do yourself a favor. Do not rely on the U.S. media to tell you what is happening, or on how you are to view Islam and this nation and the world. NBC, CBS, ABC, Associated Press, the major newspapers, CNN, etc., are not in the business to give you the true facts on the most important issues. It is naive to presume they are--a naivete that they are using to deceive us, the American people, for as long as they can get away with it! Ever since I was a boy, I sought to form my own opinions on issues, and did this purposely by doing my own reading (not just what teachers assigned me to read). I read outside classes and assignments, from grade school to high school and through college days. It paid off. My opinions are my own! They are not the result of spin masters in New York or Los Angeles or Washington. I can think for myself. I thank God He has given me this ability, but I had to develop it with a lot of hard work and much thought and the reading of thousands of books and magazines and the writing down of my own thoughts to keep a record of them. I amy not be right on every issue, but at least my thoughts are my own--I am not a mere consumer of television and a rehasher of somebody else 's brainstorms! Millions of people today cannot think a single original thought, because they have always swallowed, uncritically, the pre-packaged news and commentaries available so handily in newspapers, on TV, on the radio, and in films and books. You have to do your own research--there is no other way, if you truly want to think with your own brain, not somebody else's brain transplanted, via television, radio, films, etc., to your head!

The Devil misuses music to seduce and corrupt young people, by the millions--and draw them into his kingdom as his slaves. It is so effective that Satan has destroyed generation after generation of American youth through popular music. It continues to be a gigantic industry in America, and one of the most effective means Satan has to make young people serve him instead of the Lord Jesus. John and Charles Wesley took bar room and pub tunes and put Christian lyrics to them, and they became beloved Christian songs for generations, and many are still being sung today.

Former President, Anti-Semite, Terrorist-Supporting Jimmy Carter (standing on far left)


Years ago at Bible school I had a strange dream, that does not seem so strange now, twenty some years later. The dream was of a downtown of a large city, and Jews were made to wear identifying marks (I think I saw yellow stars of David) and they were being persecuted violently and rounded up. I told the Bible school director about this dream. At that time there was no such anti-Semitism going on in America, but it was clearly America being pictured in the dream. That was in the late 1970s.

Now the dream is coming into its own--shining a spotlight on what we see developing here--our own home-ground anti-Semitic movement and pogroms in the making! Jimmy Carter, former president, and Nobel Peace Prize winner, revealed recently to be recipient of funds at the Carter Library Center from terrorist friends, has come out with his published book attacking Israel, charging it with being an "apartheid state" such as South Africa was before N Nelson Mandela was released from prison and the racist Dutch Afrikaner government lost power and new elections held that put a black majority dominated government in power. Nothing could be further from the truth than Carter's book. Fifteen of his advisors and chief aides working at the Carter Center resigned when the book came out. Carter defied the criticism that began, when Americans everywhere realized the falseness of his charges.

Israel is still the only democracy in the Mideast, other than Turkey, and that is crumbling away into something approaching a fundamentalist Islamic state.

Israel has 1.3 million Arabs, all citizens of Israel, holding equal rights with Jewish Israelis, and electing Arab representatives in the Knesset, the government's legislative body in Jerusalem. What do Arab countries around this "apartheid state" of Israel have to compare with this record. Nothing! Saudi Arabia will not allow one Jew to live within its borders--not one! No Christians either--if they exist, they cannot meet in churches or even hold prayer meetings in their homes--they are subject to arrest, imprisonment, and even execution by beheading. So much for Saudi Arabia, one of Jimmy Carter's exemplars of Muslim Arab freedom and liberty for all. The same can be said for Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Iran, Libya, Sudan, Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, and all the other friends of Jimmy Carter. They won't permit Jews either, and rigorously persue Christians, particularly Muslims who have converted, imprisoning them, torturing them, and often killing them in the town and village squares, tearing them literally apart while the mobs pass the body parts around with fiendish glee (this scene was described by Walid Shoebat, as taking place in Ramallah, the West Bank capital of the PLO and now the seat of the Abbas Fatah terrorist state).

So this perpetually smiling (like Alfred E. Newman of the comics) former Georgian peanut farmer turned liberal Democratic president has stepped firmly and defiantly into the camp of the terrorists and the Jew-Christian hating and persecuting Arab countries and societies with his book condeming the nation of Israel.

Seldom has a former U.S. president fallen so low as this (though Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is approaching this depth, with his having a pagan, polytheistic Hindu chaplain come and give the opening prayer for the U.S. Senate). It is hard to think of anything worse than his case. He can keep his Nobel Prize, which he received, by the way, with the likes of Yassir Arafat, who killed more Jews with suicide bombers than any killer and mass murderer since Hitler. Now Arafat has gone to his eternal desserts, but Mr. Carter is very much alive, and speaking in encouraging terms everywhere to terrorist groups and terrorist states in the Mideast, Asia, and Africa. This man needs to be challenged, as Pastor Hagee challenged him from the speaker's podium at the CUFI conference in Washington yesterday, to reveal to the American people the sources of his funding. This will tell us all exactly what he is and what his agenda is. We can know this man by his friends, and his friends are sworn enemies of the United States, who have vowed to destroy Israel and also America. We are all Jimmy Carter's targets, by terrorist hands. My family used to give to his Habitat for Humanity, but no more! He deprived us of our opportunity to help this building of homes for the homeless by his terrorist connections and also his denouncing of Israel on the most execrable, untrue grounds--apartheidism.

If anyone is apartheidist and supportive of apartheidist states, it is Mr. Jimmy Carter! Own up to it, Mr. Carter! You are known by your friends and supporters--and you cannot continue under a smokescreen of philanthropy to conduct your agenda of anti-Americanism and anti=Semitism with impunity. God has a reckoning due for you, as His Word states that whoever blesses Israel will be bless, and whoever curses Israel (as you have cursed Israel) will be cursed. That is the Word of God, and it cannot be overturned. It will be your sentence from the great Judge of all souls, Jesus Christ, when you step before the Great White Throne someday to account for your misdeeds and guilt.

Repent now, and be saved. You may be a Sunday school teacher in a Baptist church in Plains, Georgia, but you are no Christian who could commit such crimes as you have committed continually for many years now. Your reckoning is tarrying, but is is certain, and it may come any day now. Repent, Mr. Carter. God's wonderful, free grace can still save you, if you will give up your pride and your folly and ask for forgiveness, and then make public confession to try to rectify some of the vast damage you have done to Israel and millions of innocent people through your perfidy and lies.

We must pray for the White House Staff, the President, and the State Department, and the Congress, and our state legislators and senators and representatives! It is our Christian duty. As we slept as Christians, witchcraft became deeply entrenched in the White House, term after term of various presidents. Orgies went on there, committed by presidents, while the White House and Capitol press turned a winking eye. We owe it to our descendants to pray for the purging of witchcraft and its seducing, lying spirits which are diverting the White House, the Presidency, and our whole nation into a collision course with destruction.

Creation Science Center:

The world's greatest Creation Science museum has just opened, and is drawing record attendance already. Located outside Cincinnati, in the lush, green Kentucky countryside that is, by air and interstate highways, a transportation and cultural hub accessible to two thirds of the U.S. population, the magnificent museum is world-class in every respect and teaches the role of God the Creator in all that he made on earth and in the forming of the earth itself geologically. Macro-Evolution is false (fake science), and can be proven so. We need not operate with blind faith in opposing Evolution, which says that the Earth and the Unvierse came about by blind forces and random, fortuitous accidents of molecules that paired up somehow and make the first building blocks of life. Nothing is so improbable as that happening! We human beings did not evolve somehow from monkeys, or crawl out of duckweed or a tidal pool as some salamander-like amphibian that ultimately developed lungs from gills and replaced fins with legs and feet and toes and fingers. Lungfish which crawl out of the Everglades into people's yards in Florida are not our ancestors! These things are being taught American school children as if they are scientific fact. Go and see yourself how baseless Evolution is, and how abundant is the evidence for Creationism and a Creator God who made all of us and everything around us. One river, the Colorado, created the Grand Canyon--right? Imagine a river cutting down each section, layer by layer, then moving on to the next section, and there would not be time enough in the universe for the Colorado to carve out the Grand Canyon in that way, much less the Copper Canyon in Mexico, which is bigger than own part of the same gigantic erosion system. Clearly, no river could have done all this mass erosion of rock--and it is rock, not easily erodible. It had to be an ocean pouring off the continent--such as would occur in a world-war flood, like the Great Flood of Noah's time. What happened to all the silt and debris, by the way, carried off by the Colorado? Where is it? It is not in the Gulf of Baha California, for there would be no gulf there if the silt had been carried by the river to its mouth. Where is all the material removed from the Grand and Copper Canyon system? Please inform me! Obviously, an oceanic surge leaving the North American continent would be powerful enough to sweep up all those uncountable billions of tons of rocks and earth right into the depths of the Pacific Ocean. No river could have accomplished such a massive earth removal. You see what I am saying by all this? Evolutionary thinking dumbs down the thinking of ordinarily intelligent people. They then, mindlessly, ask no questions of this sacred cow of Evolution, and no light shines in the darkness, and they continue to darken the minds of school children, who accept this doctrine unquestioningly and blindly--this is not education, it is sheer, unadulterated indoctrination.

Shirley MacLaine, which the Christian History Magazine has identified as a chief exponent and popularizer of the New Age Religion (which it says is a rehash of old Gnostic teachings), can move over for Joel Osteen. He has a church, she had her cultists and Hollywood following. Compare the two, his gospel with New Age-Gnostic religion, and he is clearly a New Age Religionist, as he checks out all down the line. With the New Age Religion, and Gnosticism, humans have god within and are divine in their selves, and all religions have truth and there is no one exclusive way to God, feeling good about yourself is as good as being good, God is always on hand to bless a person, regardless of sin or disobedience as God never really judges or holds us to account after Christ's death on the cross, Christianity is primarily about self-realization and personal peace and affluence...and so on. This is a mixture of all sorts of bad teachings, with a little truth thrown into the poisonous witch's brew! Check out "Joel Osteen, True or False?" in Dial-the-Truth Ministries (and click on Articles or Search to go straight to the article):

In connection with Oprah Winfrey's agenda of self-centeredness or solipcism--the emphasis on ME FIRST that is at the heart of her whole approach and highly lucrative programming--she is always proclaiming, "You can have it all!"--look at Francis Schaeffer's exposition of the growth of humanism in "How Should We Then Live?", in which he mentions the runaway solipcism of religion in America and Western culture as one of the signs of our catastrophic decline.

Remeember what I said about her exposing America's dirty laundry to the world? She did it today, literally, on her program--showing the stained underwear of child rape victims in the photographs made by the predator! She also said, the day before, that "many fathers are sexual abusers" of their children. Where does she get the statistics for that? Many might as well be most--for her use of "many" casts a cloud over all fathers in America as potential or actual sex predators and child abusers. This is the sorcery of this woman--that women cannot get enough of this kind of graphic exposure to the most horrendous crimes of abuse against children and women--as a result, biblically, of Eve's choice to eat the forbidden fruit so that she might possess the knowledge of good and evil. Eve's wayward daughters of modern times, such as Oprah and all her followers, are still eating that deadly forbidden fruit, with the consequences of defiling their minds and souls with virulent evil, which they then spread like new strains of pneumonia or TB by talking about it to their own children and friends and acquaintances. This kind of mass propagation and popularization of evil (all done under the banner of "informing the public" against it) is forbidden by God, but Oprah goes about it for profit, with the zeal of a traditional muck-raker of the 19th century.

Pension funds handled by the states amount to hundreds of billions of dollars. These funds are invested to bring a return to the various pension funds. But some of these billions are flowing to support terrorism, as they are invested in firms that do business in Iran, a chief terrorist-supporter in the world, and one that has gone on record to vow the destruction of both the U.S. and Israel. Isn't this amazing? We are funding, via the pension funds of school teachers, law enforcement officers, firemen, etc., our worst enemies! They are using the money invested in their country by us through Royal Dutch Shell Oil and a certain French firm and other companies doing business in Iran to kill our soldiers in Iraq and also support Hezbollah. We are, in other words, paying for our own destruction! Ohio has a group that is trying to stop their state from giving pension funds of honest, hard-working Ohioans to these wolfish companies that are reaping big bucks in Iran by investing Americans' money in the terrorist regime's oil industry. Ohio's Iran-divestment group is alerting other states of this--so that we can defund Iran and its anti-U.S. and anti-Israel program, not to mention its nuclear bomb program. More power to them! If we are ignorant of this going on, it will continue indefinitely, but once Americans are alerted, Iran will be divested, as it should be. There are over 19,000 companies world-wide to invest pension funds in, other than in Iran, and they will be profitably invested. We do not need to fund our own destruction by continuing to pour billions into Iran from our pension funds! It is bad enough to go to the pump and know that about 10% of our money for gas will go to a terrorist organization in the oil-producing, Middle East that has vowed our destruction. I don't like giving money to people who aim to blow me and my family up. Do you? Some stations now advertise "terrorist-free gas," but there are none so far anywhere near my area. Speakers at the current CUFI conference in Washington have called for Iran to be divested and defunded--and over 8 states have already acted to cut off their pension funds from being invested in Iranian gas for use of Iranians (Iran has to buy its own refined gas, made from oil it exports). The defunding will also help stop the Iranian madman of a president from using these U.S. dollars to pay Russia for its nuclear scientists' work in Iranian nuclear facilities as well as cut down on Iranian ability to pay for Russian nuclear facility materials and supplies.

Despite all the English departments at U.S. colleges and universities, the secular humanist agenda is clearly to end the teaching of English as a major world language and communication tool as well as limit the value and the teaching of English literature, which is a treasure in our Western Civilization. A bastardized version of English literature, extolling secular humanist and not Christian and Western values, is now standard fare in the textbooks and the classroom. Students have little or no idea that Christian values and Christian writers played a primary role in the developmenbt of the English language and English literature. Other cultures, other religions, are promoted as being of higher value--but ours is somehow retrograde, racist, patriarchal, sexist, homophobic, and so on. Denigrating English language, Christian writers, and English literature (particularly the Christian literature in our tradition), the English Departments are anything but "English." They are angliphobic, or anti-English. A restoration of the English language and our glorious, thousand-year old body of literature beginning with Beowulf must begin--or entire generations will be robbed of these inestimable treasures. Milan Hubl stated (Christian History Magazine, Issue 25, page 41 in "Why Study Church History?": "The first step in liquidating a people is to erase its memory. Destroy its books, its culture, its history...Before long the nation will forget what it is, and what it was."

Why study the English language and English literature in America? If we do not resurrect them soon, we will soon forget what America is, and what America was. America will be liquidated, its very memory erased by a triumphantist secular humanism in the public schools, the government, the business sector, the churches, and in the marketplace of ideas! I have no idea what we will have in its place, but it will nto be America as founded and created and intended by our Founding Fathers to be.

In the following excerpt, we have a provocative picture of several wayfarers walking through a wasteland of desert where no life, no water, exists--yet God is there! Nobel Prize winning T.S.

Christ died for all, he is an Equal Opportunity Savior, as a friend of mine has called Him. He did not look at any man's color or race or social standing or his bank account. In his eyes, all are loved equally, and equally in need of forgiveness for sin. We are all sinners, are we not? Political affiliation, church attendance, or something our mullah or pastor or priest tells us, will not save us from judgment for our sin. Only Jesus, his shed blood, will save us--if we go to him, ask His forgiveness, and accept what He did so that He becomes our Lord and Savior. There is no other way to be saved and escape the punishment for our sins. We may not like it--but in all other areas, we hold others responsible for harming us, or seeking to do us harm. We have harmed God, and ourselves, and expect to escape judgment and responsbility? Give truth a break for once? You are asking the impossible--if you do that? You expect others to be responsible, but exclude yourself, O Sinner? >

Rather than evade responsibility and continue in sin, why not face up to it: God is right, his Bible is right in its diagnosis of my "sin problem," and His cure is also the only Cure, namely, Jesus Christ dying on the Cross in my stead, in my place, for my sin, taking all my sin penalty and paying for it with his life blood! It is a wonderful thing for those who partake. It is life transforming. Mockers will mock to the end of their lives, but the moment they die, and the demons appear to drag them off--they are converted to the truth, but it comes too late to save them from their terrible, eternal fate. Why not stop now and accept accountability--and the Remedy, Jesus? It makes a whole lot of good sense.


The U.S. media furnishes most dunces for this section, because the liberal media refuse to acknowledge the existence of jehad (the Moslem holy war against democratic Western Civilization, Israel, and Christianity.

Keith Ellison, Democratic Representative in Congress from Minnesota, the first Muslim to be elected from that state to Congress, has made it back to the top of this chart of fools by his denouncing President Bush in a speech in Edina, Minnesota, where he told the group of atheists that Bush is akin to Hitler and a perpetrator of a Holocaust because of his war in Iraq. This is the man who swore in publicly with his hand on a Koran he took from the library of Thomas Jefferson, which he did not know was there because Jefferson wanted to know what the Koran taught that made Muslims hate Christians so passionately they went to war, in his time, the Barbary Pirate rulers (all North African Muslims) kidnapping crews and enslaving them after seizing American merchant ships passing through the Straits of Gibraltar into the Mediterranean. It was not because Jefferson favored Islam--it was out of reasons of national security and his own puzzlement about Islam's violent penchant against Christians! Well, if Ellison had known Jefferson's reason, he would not have touched this Koran, it would have burnt his hand! But he went on to swear himself in--as a deliberate act of defiance of America's Christian foundation as a nation. What a Congressman he will make! He is already proving that Minnesota's liberal voters made a very big mistake in electing him to such a high post to represent them! He is not only showing himself a horse-head or a jackass without peer but a liar, comparing Bush to Hitler, which he does not resemble in the least. My dear aunt and uncle had a home for many years in the beautiful Minneapolis suburb of Edina, and stayed with them and worked in their landscaping firm, so I hate to see this scurvy dog of Congressman defile my memory of it in this way. Shame on you, Rep. Ellison. You are most unfair and false in your statements about President Bush. He has failed in a number of respects to live up to the trust of the American people, but it is not in the way you have stated. I pray the voters of Minnesota will wake up soon to the huge gaffe he committed electing you to represent them! I am sure many are already waking up and rueing the day.

The excellent "Levitt Letter," the newsletter of the Zola Levitt Ministries, has a recent article in the May 2007 issue that every Christian in America should read, entitled, "How do Christians Live With Muslims?", authored by Frank Pastore, Another timely article, "Muslims Accept Israel's Messiah," is offered in the Februasry 2007 issue of Levitt Letter, and it details the turning to Jesus by millions of Muslims, country by country. This is information you probably won't see anywhere else, and it will no doubt astound and encourage you. You can try the web address of Mr. Pastore. Otherwise, the excellent Levitt Letter magazine can be ordered or the article by Mr. Pastore can be accessed, perhaps, by going to the Zola Levitt website:

I have often referred to Christian History Magazine on this page lately, and it is highly recommended to you to subscribe to as soon as you can. This magazine affords very readible articles done by historians about major evangelical figures, such as Finney, Wesley, Luther, Whitehead, Moody, and many, many others. They are in a much easier format than a weighty book--yet contain as much as books, only more condensed, I would suggest, because there is less "padding" or repetition. A magazine, because of limited pages, must necessarily be more concise and to the point, but a book can be padded to reach a certain length thought more publishable or impressive.

Please do your Bible scholarship a favor and give yourself this boost, which is a big one, by subscribing. I hope to order a whole series of these already printed magazines on all the major evangelists, which is over for less than $100 as long as the supply lasts.

Keith Ellison is our pick of the Dunces once again! Keith Ellison, Minnesota's Moslem representative in the House in Congress, is a co-sponsor of the Military Sodomy Act authored by Representative Marty Meehan, who is a crony of Sen. Edward Kennedy. Doesn't his sponsorship of a bill that would open the U.S. military to sodomists prove beyond doubt how immoral this man is? It is hard to imagine that Moslems world-wide would countenance his support for this bill, and the jehadists and fundamentalists would probably blow him up or behead him if they could get their hands on him. Minnesota, which is a flaming liberal state, has a representative who stands for perversion--co-sponsoring the Military Sodomy Act, which is called, euphemistically, "Military Readiness Enhancement Act of 2007 (HR 1246). How does sodomy in the ranks enhance our military readiness or performance? Clearly, it will only destroy such things. Our military will be destroyed--we will have sunk to the level of Denmark's military, which cannot even defend Tivoli Gardens! The Minnesotan voters are getting what they deserve for voting him into power--and sooner or later their own sons and daughters will become prey to sexual perverts and predators. it is just a matter of time, as what goes around, comes around.

"Forgive Me," Message by Stuart Maxwell Hawkins

Aglow (an evangelical Christian women's organization for fellowship and ministry and evangelism) is celebrating its 40th anniversary, to be held in Washington State. This will be a worth-while occasion for any woman, as my own mother has been going to meetings for years at a local chapter, and has been greatly blessed. It is truly in tune with God's Spirit, for the ministry is wonderful, and she has received even prophecies that tell of her receiving a new ministry in healing. Some churches may not be equipped, spiritually, to help in these areas--to be truthful about it. That is a real problem, but thank God there are Aglows where Christian women can go and freely seek God and received bountifully from the Lord--healing, direction, encouragement, and edification and helps for further spiritual growth. These women remain in their churches, returning with increased faith and zest to make a difference there, to help build up the body of Christ, and also be better wives, mothers, or role models as Christian women to other women and to girls. Thank God for Aglow! I see what it does for my mother, and she is so valued by the local Aglow in turn--and receives much prayer for healing for her infirmities as a 97 year old believer in Jesus.

Seek God whether He wants you to attend the Aglow (Aglow in the Spirit) anniversary. He may!

I see it repeatedly, and increasingly, on Christian TV channels such as Daystar and TBN, both of which I love and support. But I do not condone all the practices I see on the programs. What I object to is the bragging about the numbers of people in respective churches by pastors and evangelists. It is the first thing out of their mouths, how many go to their church or churches. The first thing, after their name is trumpeted to the whole wide world! This is not the spirit of Christ, it is not humility and meekness, it is self-advancement at work under the guise of Christian faith and evangelism. What baloney! Ego is ego--self-advancement is self-advancement. I do not see Jesus going about trumpeting himself like that, nor did any of his Apostles--yet it is a common, apparently accepted practice today. Shame on us! Jesus said, "I am the Vine, you are the branches." Apparently, we have turned it around, so that WE are the Vine, and He is the branches. Jesus is made to serve our agendas. However you cut this cake, the taste is nauseating and putrid. I think that television is particularly conducive to this kind of self-promotion, as the cameras, the bright lights, the set up of stage and audience, the whole entertainment mode of production and the timing of the various "acts" are all based on television entertainment shows. Those things in themselves are not evil--but they all distract away from the main focus, which ought to be Jesus. Even though Jesus is repeatedly named by the host or hostess, the names of the show people (for they are show people--showing themselves over Jesus) are the big ticket items. Watch these programs and see if this is not the case. It certainly is--and this is not to say that some of these "show people" have some wonderful things to share and some riveting testimonies. Some do! But the general drift is not good--it is self-directed, not toward Jesus but toward the people themselves, is it not? I have watched Christian television for over fifteen years now and it is not improving, it is becoming more worldly all the time. I can prophesy that before too long I will not be able to tell the difference between the way Christians dress and the way pagans dress, nor will their conversations be any different. They will say the same things. I just heard an evangelist saying to the Christian audience that he could "cut" somebody who stepped out of line. No Christian would talk like that! This fellow was an elegantly dressed, strapping fellow in a very expensive suit--and young and virile and handsome too! The audience was filled with women who might like his appearance, perhaps too much. But he was a hit with them, obviously, by their reception of his "either work with me, or I will cut you" Christianity. How these imposters and charlatans get on Christian television, I have no idea! They look great, but ten words out of their mouth ought to unmask them to any head of programming on Christian channels. Obviously, they are not screened. Credentials are enough to get them on. They are usually "bishops" of this or that mega-church. That will do it! Or they write a book. They have managed to corner something marketable in the Christian world that will gain them fifteen minutes of fame and exposure on world-wide Christian television channels on TBN or Daystar. This is a sad commentary, is it not? But it is merely what I have observed--and the truth is the truth. We have, in today's Christianity in America, come a long, long way from Apostolic Christianity, and have little or no idea of what Christ intended when He said, "I am the Vine, you are the branches."

Jesus Christ to the Church of Laodicea, which is Christianity in America:

And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write: These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God: I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eye with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke, and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent."--Revelation 3:14-19
