Stranger sharing the Messianic prophecies about Yeshua from the scriptures. The place is the road to Emmaus, in sight of the Mount of Olives, and the two discouraged disciples listen to the stranger's wonderful words of God's truth, their hearts "burning" within them.


A Messianic School of the Bible


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."

You are most welcome to review the list of the Bible books now. This is vital. In this era, when there is so little knowledge of the Bible, it can no longer be taken for granted that everyone knows what they are.

For a most unusual addition to your own library or as a special gift to someone at Christmas: Zola Levitt Ministries has a scroll available with Messianic Old Testament prophecies set by New Testament scriptures of fulfilment of the same prophecies, and you can get it by ordering one from Zola Levitt Ministries. I have received mine, and it is a beautiful and meaningful thing, with many prophecies and fulfilment scriptures on it. By the way, look for the Zola Levitt program on Daystar Television Network.--Ed.


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.

"Heroes of America Series--William Penn, the Conclusion

It is vital to know more about our country's origin and development. We are given so much misinformation by those who wish to put their secular-humanist value system and world-view and agenda for America over on us all. The problem is that we know so little of the true facts that a well-prepared secular humanist can say anything they like, with concocted "evidence," and we lose the contest hands down. This doesn't have to happen. It is time to turn the tables on the secular humanists destroying our country. Have you heard, for instance, that our Founding Fathers were Deists? Or if that isn't said, have you heard that Benjamin Franklin was a Deist, and Thomas Jefferson was a Deist too? The definition for Deism, if you know it, refutes that secular humanist charge for both Founding Fathers. They were not exactly orthodox Christians, but they were the farthest thing from Deists. Imagine a Deist recommending church attendance, as Franklin did, or requesting prayer in the first legislatures in Philadelphia, as Franklin did. And Jefferson? He composed a Bible that could be used for converting the Indians. He removed the miracles from the New Testament and left the theology because he thought the miracles might be confusing to them and what they needed most was theology. Now that is not Deism, in any stretch of the imagination! Yet these two Founding Fathers are still be touted as Deists, or at least skeptics, by secular humanists. And they can't even be called skeptics--as a textbook I have on hand calls Franklin! We can refute these erroneous statements by secular humanists if we know only some of the facts--but we must know some. I have on hand David Barton's article, appearing in Joyce Meyer's magazine, "Enjoying Everyday Life," December 2005, entitled, "The Founding Fathers and Deism." For a reprint of this you can contact Joyce Meyers Ministries or David Barton the source. And for ANYTHING about America's true foundations in Christian faith and beliefs, from the original documents and the lives and acts of Christian Founding Fathers:

Most of us have heard that the first Muslim to be elected to represent Minnesota at the U.S. Congress has announced pubicly that he refuses to swear in on the Bible and has chosen the Koran instead. A Jewish talk show host on the radio, Mr. Graber, criticized this choice, saying that the Bible has always been recognized in the U.S. as THE Book--not just any other religious book. To do violence to this tradition, in his thinking, is to do violence to our sacred American traditions. For this brave and honest stand, he was castigated by the jackasses (there is no other word for them, other than John Hagee's "nitwits") of the Jewish Anti-Defamation League, which called him intolerant and a bigot--which is strange, because Mr. Graber is Jewish. Now who is really behaving Jewish--in the best sense? I for one would not hesitate to name Mr. Graber! He is a lone voice in this wilderness of secular humanism in America, crying out, but receiving nothing but the worst hate speech and abuse for saying what is right and true about America and the Bible.

Public Law 97-280, October 4, 1982, Approved October 4, 1982, Statute 1211, proclaims to the nation and the world that "Congress Declares Bible "The Word of God." I have colored this jpg the color yellow, because this could not happen in 2006, and has not happened in 2006. We have become a cowardly nation in all respects, despite certain exceptions such as Mr. Graber and John Hagee and a few others. Our President commends a dictator's "landslide victory" in Venezuela. The same President received the worst abuse ever given any nation's leader by another leader in the United Nations Assembly, heaped on him like a ton of manure by this same tinpot country's dictator, Chavez, without a murmur. He was called a Devil, a Satan, an oppressor, and many other noxious things! For what? Because he dared to fight for freedom and the American way of life and tried to make it available to one of the worst cases in the dictatorship-ridden Middle East! Does this President not know, or has he forgotten, that he represents his nation? He stands in a long line of noble, brave leaders. He ought not to take such things so lightly. As you can read in in I Chronicles 19, King David's envoys, sent in real friendship because of the death of the king who had been friends with David, were abused and ill-treated and humiliated by Hanun the new king of Ammon (which is north of Moab, on the left bank of the Jordan River). Hanun cut off the beards of these dignified men, and also cut their robes off just below the waist (the Bible uses a more descriptive phrase than I want to use) and then sent them walking back to Israel. Can you imagine the shame of that in the culture of that day? These Middle Eastern gentlemen would have preferred death to the shame of the public spectacle Hanun inflicted on them. Crowds of Ammonites must have jeered at them every step of the way out of the country. They were also probably pelted with dung, rotten fruit, and dirt clods. This was an unprovoked outrage. Realizing that he had gotten David mad as a hornet, Hanun hastily spent a lot of his money to hire 32,000 chariots and drivers, and another fighting force as well, and joined them with his own army. All this was not enough to ward off mighty King David who was going to make Hanun pay dearly for his mistake. King David replied with an all-out war that crushed Ammon and the even more dangerous ally of Syria. What is inexplicable is that Hanun dared to provoke this lion, David, after David had previously defeated the mighty Philistines and many other major military powers. The only explanation is that Hanun was so young he was brash and ill-advised--he thought, being young, he was more than equal to the older man. How wrong he was! We see now Iran's leadership dressed in clerical robes boasting that they are no longer in the position to fear anything America can do to them. Iran, they say, can do anything it wants to do. They are even hosting in Tehran an anti-Holocaust symposium--gathering spurious authorities on history who will speak pure nonsense and deny there was a Holocaust, thus removing the one main reason for Israel's existence as a refuge for the Jewish people. I can only think that we have invited this foolish, brash new Hanun, Iran's president, to provoke and outrage us and our ally, Israel, through our defeatest, anti-war in Iraq Congressmen and now the equally defeatist Baker-Hamilton "study group." If I were Iran's president, or Hanun the Second, I would be encouraged to slap and humiliate America, since America is being shown a weak paper tiger, and indecisive and divided at best.

Now Iran's charge against us--and I heard Iran's president say this in an interview with an idiotic American newsman from 60 Minutes--is that America is the oppressor. Yes, that is what this little dictator said! Yet what oppressor acts as America acts? If Iran were devastated by a killer earthquake, what country would be first to send real aid? America! If Venezuela (another enemy of America) were destroyed by a hurricane or earthquake--guess who would be first on the scene with massive aid by the U.S. government and American Christian ministries and organizations? Would it be Saudi Arabia, Russia, France, the Netherlands (which is about the tightest nation in philantrophic giving, though better than Italy!)! How is it any different today in this world of nations that circle us like sharks who scent blood? We are being encircled, and the more blood we let go without any response--the more the sharks are encouraged to attack, since they see we are not going to defend ourselves! The president of Iran has led the pack against us. Now this petty dictator of Venezuela is leading a movement of socialist resurgence through all of Latin America. Communist Cuba's bloody dictator (the darling of America's liberals and secular humanists), Castro, is now being vindicated for his lifelong hatred and resistance against America and its freedoms.

Thank God for the example, however, of Congress in 1982, when it declared the Bible to be the Word of God and vitally connected with America in every meaningful way! When the ACLU continues its rampages against the public mention of the Bible or the use of it in swearing in ceremonies or the "right" of anyone to insist on the use of the Koran or any other "holy" book, we still have Statute 1211. This joint resolution and statute, authorized unaminously by both houses of the Congress, must be wiped from the books and Marx and Engel's Communist Manifesto put in its place if we are to allow the representative from Minnesota to claim a specious right not one of our Founding Fathers would let him claim as a free American proud of his country. They would have run him right out of the country as the montebank and ingrate and intolerant shyster he really is! He should be run out now--deported to a Islamic dictatorship, where he would have to be sworn in on the Koran, in an office that would mean nothing since it would not be won in a free election by free people who can exercise a choice. If he wants to be sworn in on a Koran, let him go to Pakistan, or Indonesia, or Saudi Arabia, or Egypt, or Libya, or Sudan (where they are presently slaughtering tens of thousands of Christians in Dafur). Any U.S. Congressman who slaps the whole nation in the face before taking office in the way he has done, ought to be given a one-way ticket to the Islamic concentration camp of a country of his choice. No one was going to force him to swear in on the Bible--in fact, it is not that commonly done anymore in the U.S. Congress. He deliberately made it an issue, seeking to insult and humiliate this Christian-founded nation as a triumphantist Muslim taking office in the U.S. Congress. Let his issue, which he raised by choice, take him all the way out: to a nation where no one is free, where no one has the right to freedom of conscience in religion, where no one can raise his or her head if she is a Christian, or a Jew, or a Buddhist, or anything else--where if you do, it will be severed from your shoulders, as is currently done in Saudi Arabia and other Islamic states where Islamic Sheriah law is the law of the land. It is against the law in Saudi Arabia even to carry a Bible! This is the most outrageous travesty of a nation--yet we support it, year after year, with our alliance and our oil money by the untold billions, money the corrupt, corpulent king and his gang of sex-crazed, over-fed relatives squander on themselves with luxurious limoisines, palaces, gold-inlaid swimming pools, marble dog houses, diamond-encrusted tooth brushes...!

Secular Humanism has brought us to this point, and the outrages will continue, as a free, Christian, Bible-based America (I am speaking about our true foundations) is publicly defied, humiliated, and discredited by its jealous, anti-democracy, socialist, Islamic foes, who have been given center stage in the name of "Tolerance," "Multi-Culturalism," "Diversity," and the other abominations specifically engineered by secular humanists to destroy a free nation founded under God and Christ.

Alexis de Tocqueville, the great French political and social commentator, touring America in the early 19th century in order to discover the causes of America's greatness, concluded that it was the preaching of righteouness from the pulpits in thousands of America's churches. It is high time to return to the cause of our greatness as a nation--the Bible-pased preaching of righteousness! Our greatness is not Wal-mart, or Wall Street, or Wall Drug--it is the Word of God, and the Righteousness of God, preached in the pulpits of Bible-based churches! Nothing else will preserve this nation or continue its greatness. It will fall, and is currently falling, when that God, the Bible, and righteousness are forgotten. Americans, Christians, and Jews, it is our choice! At the same time we repent and return to God, our national policy must become one that leads all nations to adopt Emperor Constantine's landmark Edict of Milan, which gave religious freedom in the Roman Empire to Christians. This Edict can be used as the base for similar laws, that will overturn the worst features of Sheriah that anathematize and prohibit religious freedom or freedom of conscience for 1.3 billion human beings on earth (and a growing number each year, largely due to their extremely high birth rate). This cannot be tolerated any longer--for it breeds vast turmoil, hatred, wars, attacks on Christians and Jews other people of faith, and even threatens the entire world with a new nuclear arms race and nuclear warfare. This Edict needs to be adopted by the United Nations, or it will continue to be a travesty of an assembly for freedom-loving, independent nations. There is no reason why Sheriah's exclusion of freedom of conscience should be allowed to grow and dominate in a free society, overturning its freedoms in order to eradicate religious liberty and substitute Islamic theology.

Now the Islamic apologists will claim that everyone is free under Sheriah to practice their own religion, even if the state religion is Islam. (This is what the atheistic Soviets and Communists claimed too, citing religious freedom in their constitutions, while millions languished in jails, prisons, and concentration camps for the "crime" of practicing Christianity!) This is not so. We see how people fare in Islamic states today--persecution, murder, beheadings, torture, enslavement, stiff taxation, no freedom to share their faith with their neighbors or even those who come requesting information, death for baptizing any former Muslim, and on an on!--it is intolerable for Christians in most all Islamic states. Coptic Christians are thought to be the original Egyptians (the Arabs and Muslims came much, much later), yet they persecuted and even murdered in their own country by Muslims! This goes on year after year--and they are also made second class citizens, all because they are Christians! I have been there, and I have seen it. Only a tiny fraction of the Christians are well-to-do--and have escaped the worst features of Islamic oppression of Christians. Even this well-to-do fraction have to be careful, as they can be kidnapped, or murdered simply because they follow Christ.

Another thing permitted by Sheriah law is honor killing. Nothing is being said in the Islamic communities about honor killings. Amnesty International and other human rights watch groups also maintain a solid front of silence, a deafening silence about honor killings in Islamic societies. This is so hypocritical of them! How many thousands of Islamic women are being brutally murdered by their brothers, husbands, or other kin, because this is sanctioned by Sheriah law? Girls and women, unmarried or married or even aged women, can be murdered for very slight offenses too--it doesn't require adultery, and even if adultery was committed, that is not a capital offense in Western society. But it is in most Islamic socieities, and possibly occurs even in the more moderate Muslim societies (wherever they may be, none come to mind). And, let's be realistic. Even if Muslim women live in many Western societies, they are not safe or immune from honor killing. They can be killed here, or, if that is not convenient, then they can be flown to an Islamic country and killed there. It is all very convenient--and the Islamic authorities will say nothing of course, and if there is police involved, they will report something that will not be the truth. The honor killing is routinely covered up. We know this is a universal practice in Muslim countries and societies--and it is probably going on in America now--but have not recognized it, because of our ignorance. The longer the Muslims operate here and increase in numbers, there will be more and more honor killings. Someday we will wake up to the fact--but how many women will perish under this cruel Sheriah law system before we put a stop to it, both nationally and internationally. Islam will NOT EVER reform--we have seen this is the case already. It must be reformed--FROM OUTSIDE. From outside, there is the danger of war and bloodshed, though war and bloodshed have come already and will continue, however many concessions the fearful, cowering, secular-humanist-dominated West makes with hostile Islamic societies. The best way for change is, gradually, from within, by the conversion of its members to Christ. Right now, conversion to Christian belief is the only way the reformation of Islam is happening. Once a former Muslim hates the violence and brutality of his religion enough, he tuns to Christ and will never commit such crimes as honor killings. He will never persecute people of other faiths. He will love his enemies--including the Muslims who are now persecuting him and threatening his life because he has become a Christian. How radically different are Islam and Christianity! They are as different as night is from day. And Allah and the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are as different as night is from day.

Most American women (and almost all secular-humanist women in Western societies!) have no idea what is the relative position of women in other countries, particularly non-Christian countries and societies. Universally, it is much, much lower! Just what do the major religions say about women? This tells how they will be treated. Moody Press offered this view of the treatment of women back in 1945, but it is just as true today as it was then. See how women are regarded by Buddhism, Confucianism, Hinduism, and Islam--all compared to how Christ in His infinite love and grace treats women:

Part II, "Christianity in America" series, by Ronald Ginther

There may be a Part III, a review of American textbooks which show clearly the anti-American bias, anti-Western Civilization bent in teacher's training today in America, which in turn leads to a shameless indoctrination of students against their own country and civilization in favor of the ways and ideologies of nations that hate America and want to see America destroyed. Is it any wonder that the mass media and Hollywood are so virulently anti-American, and Hollywood stars are always so obnoxious and critical of this country and its effort to bring freedom or defend freedom? They have been taught to see America as the world's problem! As the Bible says, they "strain at a gnat and swallow a camel!"

America, I am proud to say, has blessed me beyond all those other countries out there that are supposed to be so much better than this country of my birth. I read an American history textbook, and it has nothing good to say about Western Civilization and America. My grandmother wouldn't accept that! She left Norway in 1903, seeing that it was in steep spiritual decline, and never wanted to go back. America, her new home, was everything she had dreamed of--even if it meant hard work all her life, and going through the Dust Storms and Depression, and the World Wars. People she knew in America still loved God above everything else--that made it all worth it. So I am richly blessed by God to have great spiritual resources in the form of wonderful, godly forebears as well as relatives who are Gospel ministers such as my uncle Joseph Rangen, whom I asked some "burning questions" to which he gave some "candid answers" (and the last question and answer have much to do with America's maybe last chance to repent and not perish):

What sort of government do we have evolving these days in America? Is it truly representative, a "representative form of government" as it is claimed by so many? Or is it a deceptive screen for something grown very sinister and destructive of our cherished liberties? Television, for instance, is really a life-devouring dragon for millions, a most terrible optical drug--an addiction to which is evidenced in the behavior and lives of most Americans. Its educational value is negligible (it has virtually destroyed the education of most American students who sit in school classrooms but their minds are filled with TV images, and who will go home to watch hours of TV before going to bed). There is no comparison between TV and good books and instruction by qualified teachers and individual learning and discovery. Yet it dominates American life, so that an America without it can no longer be imagined. Television, then, is really an addicting drug--not what it seems. It is no mere electronic means of mass, prepackaged "entertainment," "educational TV," "amusement," or "diversion." It is a mind-numbing, behavior modifying, time-consuming, degenerating drug that is just as deadly as meth is on the human body. The highly profitable, cosmetic smokescreen covering the grotesque, cunning, evil dragon, however, is effective--we complain about the effects of television dominance in the culture, the radical decline in U.S. education, and the violence it promotes in the young, but we continue to watch it--feed the dragon. The only real cure for most Americans would be to ban it completely from their lives--that is, exercise total abstinence. They are TV-holics! That, of course, is "unthinkable." The following article will explain what has happened to the grand American experiment in freedom and representative government as defined by the Constitution and other founding documents.

"What Is So Special About Mohammed?", With a Comparison to Jesus Christ, a View by Ronald Ginther

WHAT FAITH CONQUERED THE MIGHTY ROMAN EMPIRE? IS THERE A LESSON HERE FOR MOSLEMS IN ISLAM? It was Christianity, of course, that conquered ancient Rome. The Roman Empire had many popular, flourishing religions and cults--Mithras, Isis, the Roman Pantheon of Jupiter down to Mercury, and many others, including the deified Emperors themselves--yet the Christian faith took over the Roman empire, which was a world state. How? By force? With the sword? Not at all, it was by peace, by the preaching of the Bible and the Gospel, by the conviction of sin, by the move of the Holy Spirit upon the sin-darkened, unregenerate hearts of men and women, that enabled them to turn from darkness to light and become true, born-again children of God. Islam knows nothing of these means (there is no being born again by the Spirit of God, no miracles of healing, no Holy Spirit, no regeneration of man's dead spirit into the Spirit of Christ)--being a religion of legalism and religious rituals and works righteousness propagated by force, oil money, and sheer numbers of an exploding population growth rate. Force, oil money, and population growth work--Islam is conquering the world. But they too, like Rome, like the Soviet Union, will stumble and fall over Christianity and be destroyed. Secular Humanism will also fall--for its world-view is untenable, despite its army of supporters based in the major centers of the national scene.

Secular Humanist apologists for Islam in the West deny the need for any real resistance by the West against Islam. Are they correct or just politically correct? Please read how a nation, even such as America, can be divided and conquered by the "enemy within" and a "peace-loving sheep" that is really a ravening wolf.

It is especially meaningful and timely, now that another Haman the Jew-hater in the person of the president of Iran has risen up in the same land, Iran (once called Persia), and is threatening the Jews of Israel with nuclear annihilation:

"Deuteronomy: Israel's Chance to Obey Christ Completely," by Ronald Ginther

Here is a great resource for everyone, to find out what has gone wrong with America, and how the great wrong we have perpetrated can be made right in the eyes of God--before it is too late! Founder of one of America's greatest churches, Cornerstone church of San Antonio, Pastor Hagee is brave because he dares to stand on the Word of God and say a sin is a sin and demand the sinner take responsibility in order to find grace and forgiveness in God--the only One who can deal with our sin. All the forces of hell in America are arrayed against him--including at times the IRS, which is the attack dog of the secular-humanist-dominated U.S. Federal Government. They tried to shut Pastor Hagee up, and even dictate to him what he could and could not put in his own newletter that he sends through the mail--but they have failed, because God is on this man of God's side, and God is still Almighty, and the U.S. Government is still not Almighty as so many of its leaders like to think it is. Our government will be humbled before God--as James Robison says--along with American society, sea to shining sea--either in chosen humility or in terrible humiliation and shame amidst the embers and ruins of desolation.

PRAYER CENTER: PRAYER IS ESSENTIAL TO A CHRISTIAN'S FAITH AND LIFE AND FRUITFULNESS. Prayer is the keystone of a successful, fruitful Christian faith, it must be said. Without prayer, faith in the Lord will remain sterile and eventually fail. Witkhout prayer, our nation founded under God will even cease to exist.

2. Saddam Hussain captured alive so he could be brought to justice (and also prayed for, that he might be saved by turning to Jesus Christ as his Savior and Lord!).

3. The release of 70 of the captives in Baghdad from the government office building (keep praying for the safe return of the other thirty or more captives).

4. The continued failure of terrorist plots on American soil after 9/11.

5. The recent arrests in London foiling a terrorist plot to bring down about a dozen American commercial jets flying from Heathrow, London, exploding them over American cities (not over the Atlantic Ocean in mid-flight as was originally reported!).

6. The increased world attention being given by human rights activists, following up the whistleblowing on it by brave Christian evangelists such as Pastor Rod Parsley and Franklin Graham, so that the UN and world community is embarrassed and forced to deal with the genocide and liquidation of black Christians by Sudan's Muslim government, which denies any complicity, of course, but has for the last decade or more sponsored and given helicopters, bombs, planes and weapons to Muslim militias raiding Dafur, south Sudan. By the way, this is the same regime under whose umbrella Osama bin Laden formerly operated a safe haven for his terrorist training camps. He must have been too hot for even them to handle, and they offered him to President Clinton, who had "better things to do" and let him get away (this is just the straight public record).

7. All the thousands, or millions, of answers by a faithful God, which we are not aware of (sometimes it is merciful we don't know just what all is going on against us!).

"A Man Called Peter," The Story of Peter Marshall, by Catherine Marshall. McGraw-Hill Book Company, New York.

"We Have a Choice, Humility or Humiliation," perhaps a last and most significant call to America to repent or be destroyed by our enemies (Islamic terrorist organizations and supporting Islamic nations, with friends in the West aiding them, such as the secular-humanists entrenched in the U.S. Congress). This call is Robison's prophetic warning, available in his 16-page booklet printed and distributed by LIFE Outreach International, Fort Worth, TX, 2006.

"Culture Warrior," by Bill O'Reilly (go to, or any bookstore), which details the unconditional, all-out war being waged against America's Judaeo-Christian foundations by secular progressives (also called secular humanists, or better: "secular retrogressives").

Why I believe Bill O'Reilly and others like him may be "Shamgars" or deliverers that God raises up to defend Israel when Israel has none of her own with the backbone to do the job:

"Who Are the Shamgars of Today?" by Ronald Ginther

Pointing to God and Heaven, "The Hand and Finger" of David's Tower, Old City, Jerusalem

Brigitte Gabriel, a Christian from Lebanon, may be an exception to my statement that I see no one with the backbone to stand up for a Christian American and a Christian civilization. Brigitte Gabriel may well be the Latter Day "Shamgar" from out of the mainstream of American evangelicalism, when she valiantly tells of the persecution of Christians in Lebanon by Muslim terrorists of Yassir Arafat's organization who took over her formerly peaceful, progressive, multi-cultural, religiously tolerant nation (the only one like it in the Middle East--a model for all the oppressive Muslim societies around it!). They turned it into a hell, and her family had to flee for their lives. Her book, "Because They Hate," depicts the reason why Muslims hate Jews and Christians so passionately, and shows how that hatred is grounded in the later Muslim scriptures (surahs) of the Koran that supercede the earlier tolerant scriptures written by Mohammed when he was in Medina eagerly seeking the favor of Jews and Christians to help him gain the upper hand against his enemies in Mecca. Truth and prayer, with the love of Jesus, is the only way to defeat this darkness from hell itself that calls itself Islam.

This book speaks to the greatest need of America--which is to wake up and seek God in repentance and then carry the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Muslims in love and humility--and can be obtained by calling 1-800-854-9899, or contact her via Pastor John Hagee's website.

She accomplished this with prayer, perserverance, and the faithfulness of God's Promises in His unconquerable Word!

"The Burden of Canada," by Eben

Once mighty, "Great Britain," formerly the birthplace of the Wesley and Welsh revivals that shook England and revitalized her (sparing oppressed Britain a French-style revolution and bloodbath), now a secular-humanist society where Christmas is a politically incorrect term to use at the time of the traditional celebration of Christ's birth ("Winter Festival," or the pagan "Winter Solstice," ineptly and dishonestly substituted). This is the "thanks" Britons gave God for sparing them from being conquered and crushed by Nazi Germany, and we know that Hitler fully intended to invade Britain and liquidate all its leading citizens, while reducing millions to slavery and concentration camps. His "liquidation lists" have been made public. Yet the churches emptied after the victory at the end of the war--and the people turned their backs on God their deliverer. Yet He has not forgotten Britain despite this, and still calls to her to return to him. She turned against Israel, and incurred a curse, but all this can be turned around. Prosperity can be swept away in a moment today, as most of the money that exists is electronic, not actual cash or gold or jewels or property. Whatever Britons trust in now can be gone, in a twinkling of an eye as the whole commercial and banking sector loses all its assets in an economic melt-down. This does not have to happen, for a revival to take place once again, perhaps for the last time, in Britain. Let us pray for Britain, that her people be spared this severe a mercy.

The above painting hangs in St. Paul's cathedral, where I toured and took this picture in the dim light of the edifice. It portrays the spiritual state of Britain today, a nation that closed its heart to Jesus Christ. Yet Christ is still knocking on the door of its heart.

"The Burden of Britain," by Eben

Though this traditional refuge for many persecuted people (also revolutionaries and criminals, we might add) has gained credit for accepting everybody, friend or foe, its record in keeping huge amounts of stolen German Jewish assets without feeling at all obliged to reimburse the survivors of the Holocaust cannot be admired. Recently, it has become a haven for terrorists, and the terrorists are wealthy, if you don't know. Authorities are looking for the six billion or so that Yassir Arafat hid somewhere, quite possibly in Swiss banks, where so much money stolen by dictators and mafiaso crime bosses goes. His widow is presently living a life of luxury in Paris, and perhaps she knows but is not telling, lest she be reduced to poverty. All this money was given by America and the West to aid the impoverished Palestinian people, to help build their society's infrastructure and start schools and hospitals and businesses, but Yassir Arafat diverted practically all of the aid into his own secret accounts. The Bible prophecies that someday the treasures of wickedness will be brought into the open, and the money that the wicked world has hidden in secret hoards like the greedy dwarves of German legend will be turned over to Christians! The righteous will inherit what the wicked have heaped up for themselves! I do believe this is coming about, as news of these fortunes stolen from the rightful owners such as the Jews is hitting the newspapers. These fortunes, and with accrued interest, if justice be served on this sick, old planet, must be turned over to them, a number of whom have since the Holocaust become Christians, as you can learn by ordering the "Survivors' Stories" video from Jews for Jesus.

Is the so-called Prosperity Gospel a heresy? Is it really based on scripture, as is claimed by those who preach it? What possible harmful effects could it have on Christian faith? Why is it so popular, and draw so many people to churches where it is regularly preached? Is it an American phenomenon--reflective of America's crazed, ultra-materialistic culture(consider Tom Cruise's vulgar, 2.5 million dollar "wedding" extravagaza-circus in an Italian castle as just one example of our lunatic extravagance and self-deification as American super-materialists)--or is it more universal? These are some questions we will try to ask and answer (or at least shed some light upon) in a proposed article.

There is a counterfeit in Satan's kingdom for everything, or almost everything, God has created for blessing His children in His kingdom. Marriage is no exception. Now Satan has substituted, in order to pervert and destroy God's creation of holy matrimony, his unholy marriage of man with man, or woman with woman--homosexual liaisons and lesbian liaisons masquerading as monogamous unions. In the mainline churches, and you can read which ones as reported in the news, same-sex marriages (a euphemism for homosexual or lesbian liaisons) are being sanctioned by deluded New Age religionists who accept everything religious, regardless of what the Word of God says about such sexual sins. God, however, created holy matrimony as the first institution to bless mankind and every couple joined together lawfully in His eyes. What a beautiful creation! It is so life-enhancing, so fruitful, so lasting, so happy--only God could create so wonderful a thing. Please link to an excerpt from the official programme of the splendid, even majestic wedding ceremony of Prince Charles and Lady Diana in St. Paul's Cathedral, London, 29 July 1981. It speaks of the pure essence of holy matrimony, as drawn from the peerless, immortal Word of God. It is truly an awesome union, the joining in marriage of one man with one woman, sealed by the holy Spirit of God, and witnessed by the assembly of saints and the leaders of the Church and the world, and must never be lightly be entered into. Just because the two who took vows lightly in this particular marriage of Charles and Diana's, it does not mean that the institution is flawed in its conception. God only does things perfectly. We know they both failed in their vows--but that was of their choosing, and it cost them both dearly in happiness. If only their vows had been honored, it is likely their lives would have gone very differently--and much better. It is a very tragic story how Princess Diana ended up killed in an automobile accident in a Paris tunnel, but the sadder thing was the failure of the marriage, long before it was made public. The object lesson of this is inescapable: God's ways are best. If we do not follow them, we will suffer grave loss. As with individuals, so with nations and societies! A marriage is a divinely-instituted covenant, and America too was founded in a most beautiful, divinely-instituted covenant, as is clear from reading the Pilgrim and Puritan covenants. To turn from any covenant from God to do what we selfishly want is to invite unhappiness, sorrow, and even death and destruction. Fortunately, there is still opportunity for America to turn back to God and His covenant with us! We do not have to end up as the lovely Princess Diana did. Prince Charles, though a survivor, has to live with his own regrets and remorse, no doubt.

A royal wedding infinitely more splendid and majestic than Charles and Diana's is coming, when Christ is wed to His Bride. His bride will be ready, and she will be without spot or wrinkle. Are we preparing ourselves as the Bride of Christ? It is time to purify ourselves and get ready for the grand royal wedding with the King!

On a trip to England, my hosts took me to St. Paul's Cathedral, and we saw the silver chandeliers had been taken down, for cleaning, in preparation for the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana. The cathedral itself had to be cleaned and purified for the wedding and the honorable guests and the Bride and Groom and the Groom's royal mother the Queen and the Archbishop of Canterbury and The Dean of the Cathedral. This was probably the wedding of the century, watched world-wide by television by hundreds of millions. How much more, we, the Church and Body of Christ, must be made ready for the wedding, cleaned and purified for our much more glorious Bridegroom, Jesus Christ!

He was an effective soul-winner, speaking to young men like himself who were still wandering aimlessly through life, and then leading them to Christ after sharing with them his story how Jesus had given his life meaning and love after years of searching and feeling empty and meaningless.

Also check out AFA's Pass Along Sheet telling about how Wal-Mart rolls out the red carpet for homosexual marriage:

Liberty Counsel, an advocate for Christmas, took on Wal-Mart, and it has "seen the writing on the wall" and restored "Christmas" to its stores, and now employees can wish customers "Merry Christmas," instead of the generic, idiotic, meaningless, insipid "Happy Holidays."

You too, as a customer, U.S. citizen, and Christian, can make a difference. Simply sign on (without having to make a donation) to a petition to help save Christmas at our nation's retail stores, where it is being driven into extinction by the ACLU and its supporters through strong-arm tactics and intimidation. Click on "Naughty and Nice Retail Stores" on the left of the web page and you can read the list of those who delete Christmas and those who support Christmas. It is illuminating, to say the least. After reading the names of stores that have trashed Christmas, I am hardly inclined any more to shop there.

At this site, which is Liberty Counsel, you can also send an email with your complaint about any store or business (where you may be an employee) that is discriminating against this legal holiday of Christmas. I sent one right away about our local Fred Meyers store, for Freddies ignored my respectful letter sent last year reminding them that Christmas is still a legal U.S. holiday and I really did not like their anti-Christmas change in the store banners and salespeople's greetings. My brother who works at SEATAC International Airport has also a complaint he needs to send in. All of this major U.S. airport's Christmas trees were removed at midnight. Imagine that! No Christmas trees at Christmas! The news of this has gone national, and you can read about it without it being reported here. This last event just proves that none of us can avoid the secular humanist's culture war against Christianity--the all-out battle against cherished Christian values and traditions and beliefs, that is being waged coast to coast in America by the secular humanists who claim to be so tolerant and compassionate but are the very opposite.

We must stand, dear fellow Americans and Christians!

Stand up now--not when it is too late and you and I wake up in a secular-humanist, politically correct paradise that is really a hell worse than anything you could imagine.

Stand, be counted, and the darkness of secular humanism can be stopped in its tracks. Do nothing, and everything vile will triumph. Yes, it may seem like a small thing now to you, this saving Christmas in the stores, but it is actually very important.

Someday I want to take a tour of the great Dutch dykes, and see the more traditional type (if it still exists) that was used effectively for centuries to hold back the North Atlantic from drowning the low-lying Dutch farms and cities. Just as one tiny hole in a dyke can bring it all down, and thousands are drowned, when all it takes (as the wonderful Dutch story goes) to save the country of Holland is for a single, quick-witted Dutch boy with some practical common sense and love of others to stick his finger into the hole before it gets any bigger and the stormy ocean is stopped in its tracks!

Remember, biblically, this is exactly what David did! He was the original dyke-saver and national hero! All it took to save Israel from being conquered and wiped out by the Philistine invaders was for one plucky shepherd boy who believe in Almighty God's faithfulness to stand up against the giant Philistine Schwarzenegger with his slingshot and a stone he picked out of a nearby creek!

The rest is history: three thousand years later, the Jews and now again Israel still exist, thanks to the boy David! Remember too, it wasn't the tall, armored Saul the king, his pompous, Henry Kissinger-like stuff-shirt counsellors and cabinet, or his war department of generals and army that saved Israel--they were a pack of cowards, cowering in fear of the Philistines. No, it was that lone, fleece-shirted shepherd boy from some hick town named Bethlehem who did the job they were supposed to do but were afraid to do--all because he loved and believed in the power of the God of Israel to turn the tide against Israel's mortal enemies. Israel badly needs, by the way, such a shepherd boy today--as it is stumbling under its present, Neville Chamberlain-like leadership toward even more compromise and humiliation by the pagan, uncircumcised Philistines of today--the fanatical leaders of Iran and the PLO and Hamas and Hezbollah.

One paragraph from the AFA Pass Along Sheet regarding Wal-Mart: "When Wal-Mart announced their support for the homosexual agenda a few weeks ago, they meant what they said. You will remember that the Wal-Mart asked for, and received, permission to join the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC). The company announcd they were giving two large grants to NGLCC. The world's largest retailer was rewarded with a position on the board of NGLCC. Wal-Mart also announced they would give preference to homosexual-owned businesses in purchasing products."

Remember Ellen on TV "coming out of the closet," with her announced lover, Ann Heche? It was, in 1997, TV's most widely publicized event. I recall it, chiefly because I wrote a letter to a local McDonalds, saying I was not going there again to eat, after they came out endorsing Ellen--asking how could they do that and still support the family. Well, Ann's mother, Nancy Heche, interviewed by Joni Lamb on Daystar, has written a book, "The Truth Comes Out," in which she tells her very painful but necessary journey back to God, after losing her faith and her husband and her "ideal marriage" in 1980 when he died of HIV after living a double life as a homosexual. Then her daughter joined with Ellen publicly on TV in a lesbian relationship. It took some real sorting out in her heart and life before Nancy Heche found ways of loving and accepting her daughter as Christ would, yet without saying that homosexuality is right to do. Now Nancy is able to challenge churches not to reject homosexuals but to love them--the only way to win them back to the sexuality God chose for them and, even more important, the relationship with Jesus that will make their lives worth living.

Item: Wesley's Cow Sermon: "One day John Wesley [the great British evangelist of the 18th century) was walking with a man who expressed his doubt as to the goodness of God. He said, 'I do not know what I shall do with all this worry and trouble.' At that moment Wesley saw a cow looking over a stone wall. 'Do you know,' asked Wesley, 'why that cow is looking over the wall?' 'No,' said the man. Wesley said, 'The cow is looking over the wall because she cannot see through it. That is what you must do with your wall of trouble--look over it and above it.' Faith enables us to get above circumstances and look to Christ who is over all, blessed forever.", with article, "Lost Jewish Tribe Soon to Move to israel," by Julie Stahl, Jerusalem Bureau Chief,

Postscript to Item on Assyrians: The webpage also announces the event of Christians for Assyrians of Iraq, which will demonstrate peacefully in front of the White House, Monday, December 4, 2006.

Item: The Bible says you can know a tree by its fruit. What kind of fruit has Evolution produced? Dr. James Kennedy, of Coral Ridge Ministries, has diagramed the family tree of Evolution, and it has produced some deadly, evil fruit, as you can see:

Evolution...absence of a Creator....absence of disintegration...crime/...absence of morality...fascism...Holocaust

Evolution...absence of a Creator...meaninglessness of shootings/...meaninglessness of life...abortion/...atheism...eternal damnation

Evolution...absence of a Creator...meaninglessness of faith...persecution of religion

THE SOURCE OF DARWINIAN THEORY ADMITTED HIS FOLLY, HIS OPENING PANDORA'S BOX OF DEMONS CALLED EVOLUTION, WHILE LYING ON HIS DEATHBED: In a wonderful Greek story, Pandora, a naive young thing who obviously wasn't having her best day, opened a chest she should not have opened and out flew all the demons, diseases, and disasters that forever after inflicted the earth. Charles Darwin did much the same thing, only it is not a story but fact.

I have read his "Voyage of the H.M.S. Beagle" (the epic, fact-gathering scientific expedition and voyage in a wooden, sailed ship that took him along the west coast of South America and as far as the Galapagos Islands)and also viewed the account of Darwin's last days, recorded by people who were friends of his and went to visit him in his last sickness. As the white-haired, dying man lay on his bed, looking somewhat like an Old Testament patriarch painted by Rembrandt, he called for Christian songs to be sung, and the Gospel to be preached, in a chapel on his estate! Not only that, he wanted the windows opened, so that he could hear wisps of the service and the singing.

Poor Charles Darwin, the brilliant but emotionally-impaired British naturalist who started all this flood of evil in these End-Times with certain ideas he later in life recanted and bitterly regretted, was a Christian. Yes, Darwin believed in Jesus Christ! They will never tell the students in the school this fact, or they will be asked a lot of questions they don't want to answer.

An educated man, a scientist, he of all people should have known better than to publish things he could not then (nor has anyone since been able to) prove, but which has been used by wicked people to justify their rebellion and flight from God and morality and even common sense. His unproven, "unformed theory" of Evolution, despite no scientific verification, has been granted the status of a hard science like mathematics, flying in the face of the Scientific Method. It is, when you view the dogmatic fanaticism of its adherents in the schools and universities, a religious view, not a scientific view. Darwinian evolution is their alternative to a Christian world-view, which is scientifically verifiable (as archeology, astronomy, geology, and even nutrition is constantly showing to the world community of science and education). They must hold to it like bulldogs, though it is not proven, and never will be proven, because with it they can defy God, morality, and personal accountability for their wicked deeds. One of their own Darwinians even acknowledged this fact--Huxley, by name. Evolutionists since his time has since lived up to Huxley's trenchant observation that Darwinian evolution is a mere excuse for hedonism and lust. We must not forget: those who forsake God will be open to committing every atrocious act, given time and opportunity. Without God, there is ultimately no absolute Authority to answer to, and so man inevitably descends below the level of a beast in his lawless deeds (for even animals obey natural laws).

Item: Tourism in Israel Is Safe and Richly Rewarding: We cannot agree with all the current Israeli secular humanist government's decisions, of course--particularly those discriminating against Christians (when I was visiting in Jerusalem, I found out that the mayor's office had been acting anti-Christian; it had repeatedly denied re-building permits to the biggest evangelical church in Jerusalem, after it had been firebombed!) or establishing same sex marriage or legitimizing the homosexual agenda and mandating it into the Israeli schools, or condoning the lack of decency in the shameful way people dress in the streets and on its beaches (the nudity in Scandinavia, however, is a worse case!). We can never endorse abominations such as those. But we do heartily, without reservation, endorse travel in Israel. God has blessed this wonderful land of the Chosen People, and travel there is safe and will provide a great blessing, by God Himself. I was always tremendously blessed in my trips, and God shows no partiality. Just go needing a real personal touch of God, and it will happen! God is faithful! Faithful! He sees our effort in reaching toward Him, and He is touched in His heart and will reward us every time we do that! God is that loving a God toward His children. Believe in God--He will make a way where there is no way, seemingly, to go. I started out with a single penny I picked up off the floor at church in front of the offering basket, and gave it to God, along with my desire to go to Israel, and an anonymous person donated a trip to me with Art Katz's Ben Israel tour! Whatever that person's reason was, God used it to bless me beyond measure!

Terrorism? Bombs? Why fear anything? Almighty God will be flying with you and going right along side of you! Travel in Israel, and on its planes particularly, is much, much safer than in the West. Israelis have lived with aggressive, hostile neighbors so long, they know what to do to make travel in Israel extra safe. Dear Emmaus Walker, do not miss the opportunity to go to Israel now before Christ's soon coming (ask and trust God for the money!), and go (you will never, never regret it):

HELP IN CREATING FAMILY TRADITIONS: Many of us lack meaningful traditions in our family background, or they have been allowed to lapse, or are imperfectly remembered. Valuable things fail to be passed on--and then what? Can you click on RESTORE? Yes! Mrs. Dobson and Mrs. Gloria Gaither have written a book that can help you create richly meaningful activities and traditions for your family--so that you do not just eat together but share things that will be passed on by your children to their children. Our forefathers, the Pilgrims and Puritans (not a secular humanist in those groups!), passed on the wonderful celebrations that enrich our lives--and we can add to these--so check out this book, "Creating Family Traditions," by calling 1-800-AFAMILY. I have since seen a program in which a Christian father tells about how he and his wife invited his own mother-in-law to come and make breakfast for them in the morning on Christmas Day. She accepted, and it became a tradition, which now includes a lot of friends who love to join them! For each family, something different might work, but this worked for them, to bring much meaning into their lives--sharing a breakfast and felowship together on Christmas morning!
