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 and South Sudan, or the well-off American enslaved by materialism and self-indulgment and self-centeredness and ease] 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

Bible Lists by H.L. Wilmington (Published by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association) is a book that you will want to have on your desk or in your book shelf for reference. It is fascinating, and contains over 6,000 items Every category, every subject, is given texts and is itemized alphabetically from Abominations to God to Worship of God. If the subject is not in the alphabet, it can't be found in this book, which is highly unlikely. See for yourself. It can answer a lot of questions and save you hours searching and not finding what you are wanting to locate in the Bible. Just go to the subject item in the book, using the table of contents, and there it will probably be!"
Israel, its very existence imperilled, as they would be the first target on Saddam Hussain's "take-out" list, after many official and private warnings, finally sent a crack jet fighter-bomber force and bombed the Osarik facility, and took out that nuclear facility for good. But he had the money to buy his nukes instead of produce them himself, and no doubt did. Russia, after the breakup of the Soviet Union, had hundreds of suitcase nuclear bombs and missile warheads available for sale, and many "disappeared." He also had the missiles to deliver nuclear warheads and chemical weapons. General Georges Sada, the Assyrian Christian general from Iraq, reports that Saddam Hussain had weapons of mass destruction, and shipped them out of the country before the U.S. invaded in the Second Iraq War. Here is a picture, a mural from one of Saddam Hussain's palaces, and these missiles are no doubt meant to convey the message that Saddam Hussain intended utter anihilation of Israel and the U.S. and whoever else he wanted to destroy. These are not firecrackers and sparklers in the mural. The U.S. media ought to study this picture, hang it on their walls and look at it every time they write an article for the New York Times or issue an Associated Press report to 3,000 U.S. newspapers and radio and TV channels or go on Talk Radio programs or join special discussion panels on CNN and NPR and lie shamelessly to the American people, claiming the late dictator and would-be Nebuchadnezzar II of the Middle East had no weapons of mass destruction. IF SADDAM HUSSAIN HAD HIS DRUTHERS AND WAS STILL HERE ON PLANET EARTH, WE THE UNITED STATES AND ALSO ISRAEL WOULD NOT BE HERE ON PLANET EARTH, IT IS THAT SIMPLE AND PLAIN. THERE WAS NOT ROOM FOR BOTH HIM AND US! HE MADE IT THAT WAY BY CHOICE, WHEN HE COULD HAVE BEEN A GREAT BLESSING TO HIS IMPOVERISHED IRAQI PEOPLE AS WELL TO THE WHOLE MIDDLE EAST BY CASTING HIS WEAPONS INTO PLOWSHARES.
In the picture an American soldier, a retired major now, sits on Saddam Hussain's throne (just one of the many he had in over 30 palaces scattered across Iraq). This mural, coupled with the golden throne (no doubt real gold used on it, as Hussain gold-plated even his bodyguards' machine guns and rifles), ought to say something--that Saddam Hussain was intent on world domination. Anyone who would set up such a scene as this, with a multi-million dollar marble palace around it, was not running a Boy Scout troup.
Further note: The black people of America are also for sale, FOR SOME STEW VEGETABLES AND A LITTLE CHICKEN IN THE COOKING POT, in the political arena, as the Democrat Party sells them promised goods and services by the big Washington government-plantation in exchange for their souls (and the lives of millions of their unborn children, eliminated by Margaret Sanger's Planned Parenthood and its affiliates). Adolf Hitler, a White Aryan racist and an eugenicist who admired Margaret Sanger's work, also hated blacks, and if he were still alive he would be dancing a jig over the success of her racist eugenics programs, which have been instituted into law by the Supreme Court of the United States in the Roe vs. Wade Decision (who were not promoting women's rights but racist eugenics that spawned the genocide of the Jews and lately the extirpation of blacks in America).
Yes, the old adage is the truth. You can take the "boy" out of the plantation, but you can't take the plantation out of the "boy"--not unless there is a real change of heart and spirit. God himself was unable to take Egypt (the old plantation) out of the Israelites in the wilderness (the former slaves preferred the security of the plantation system to freedom and responsibility!). That is why the black people in America are voting for Barak Obama over 95%, even though he is supporting abortion, anti-tradtional morality, same sex marriage, homosexuality, and all the rest of his godless, socialist, and anti-Christian far-left agenda. They are voting, in effect, for their own Holocaust--something even Hitler could not get the Jews to do, as he never won a clear majority before the aging, tired Hindenburg caved in to Nazi violence and intimidation and put him into the office of Chancellor and head of state in Germany.
After coming to love this special land-of-the-Bible country of Turkey and its special people, how grieved I am that Turkey is turning a persecutor of Christians. Not that it wasn't in the past (for there were massacres of Christians, the Armenians, in the early 20th century, and then later in the expuls)ion of all the Greek Orthodox Christian Greeks from Anatolia, but there is an ominous change going on in Turkey, turning it away from a secular (somewhat tolerant state) country to a more traditional or fundamentalist Islamic state (which only means that persecution of Christians will increase). Christians are again losing their lives, just because they are Christians. This 99.6 per cent Muslim nation does not have a very good record for how it treats ethnic minorities such as Kurds and also Armenians (and Christians, Turkish and foreign, as it outlaws Christian evangelism and will not allow churches to be built). But now the growth of Islamic fundamentalism and the changing of the government to a more religious state than it was before under its Founding Father Mustapha Kemal Ataturk's constitution (in which separation of mosque and state was made the law of the land) is producing the fanatical, intolerant environment for persecution and even martyrdom of Christians.
He remembers His covenent forever, the word which He commanded for a thousand generations.
The covenant which He made with Abraham, and His oath to Isaac,
And confirmed it to Jacob for a statue, to Israel as an everlasting covenant,
Saying, "To you I will give the land of Canaan, the allotment of your inheritance."
"Lord, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, O Lord. Renew them in our day, in our time make them known; in wrath remember mercy."--Habakkuk 3:2.--from Billy Graham Association.
AT A TIME
Pray for our nation's leaders, including government and business leaders in your own city and state, that God will direct their decisions and through them influence the nation.
Pray for our nation's pastors, including your own pastor, that God would give them a shepherd's heart and empower them with zeal and boldness to delcare the truth of God's Word.
Pray for people around you who need Jesus.--BGEA
'There is no sin...'
A 'slain Christ has no meaning.'
'The journey to the cross should be the last "useless journey."'
'Do not make the pathetic error of "clinging to the old rugged cross."'
[Christians in Chicago, you should go and sing "The Old Rugged Cross" outside her Harpo Studio doors day and night, and be dragged away to the jails, and fill them, until the shameless Oprah Winfrey relents and bows to the Cross of Christ!]
'The Name of Jesus Christ as such is but a symbol...It is a symbol that is safely used as a replacement for the many names of all the gods to which you pray.'
'God is everything I see.'
'The recognition of God is the recognition of yourself.'
'The oneness of the Creator and the creation is your wholeness, your sanity and your limitless power.'
'The Atonement is the final lesson he [man] need learn, for it teaches him that, never having sinned, he has no need of salvation.'"
AMERICA'S SUPREME NEW AGE RELIGION WITCH, BEWARE OF GOD'S JUDGMENT AGAINST WITCHCRAFT AND SORCERY: OPRAH, YOU LIE, YOU LIE, AND YOU LIE! THE WORD OF GOD DECLARES YOU AND ALL WHO STAND WITH YOU SHAMELESS, STINKING LIARS AND DECEIVERS AND CHILDREN OF EVIL, WHO SPREAD EVIL ACROSS AMERICA IN YOUR BROADCASTS, MAGAZINE, RADIO PROGRAMS, AND BOOKS, NOT TO MENTION YOUR OWN IMMORAL AND SHAMELESSLY MATERIALISTIC, CARNAL, AND GODLESS LIFESTYLES!
This course of blasphemy and deception is anti-Christ, and has the anti-Christ spirit speaking throughout it, apparently. It is like having Satan whispering right into your ear, day after day, for the course is broken up into 365 segments or lessons. "A lesson a day throughout the year will completely cover the 365 lessons... Those who finish the Course will have a wholly redefined spiritual mindset." --a Satanic mindset dressed up in New Age religion! An additional reason to pray for her soul: the truth is coming out, telling us that she was a member for several years at Rev. Wright's church in Chicago, the same black liberation theology preacher of hate for whites and advocate of anti-Americanism who has become a political liability of sorts, a thorn in the flesh of 20 year parishioner, Barak Obama, while he campaigns for the Democrat Party presidential nominee and the office of the U.S. president. Yet Wright isn't much of a liability after all--since the black community has almost unanimously overlooked Wright and explained him away, justifying his racist and hateful remarks, as they fall all over this wonderful Obama, who is their choice, because he is their color (this is their own stated reason for choosing him, his color--which somehow is not acting racist in their view. Give me a break! I thought racism is something you choose in thought and action, based on a person's color being different from your own--so why is it wrong for a white to be racist, but it is okay for a black to be racist? Dah, I don't get it, and dah, I never will,b because I prefer the truth, not the deceitfulness of politics and wicked human hearts, the truth of the Bible.
Since that airing, Oprah has featured the ABOMINABLE Woman-Man, a sex-changed "man" who is now posing as a married man but having a baby by artificial insemination. We have reached the bottom of the cesspool, fellow Americans! Sodom and Gomorrah will rise up before the Great White Throne to judge us, since we are far more wicked than they, and we have the Gospel, the Bible, the Ten Commandments, the prophets, and Jesus Christ and the Church to warn us from doing such terrible things as this! What a picture this is sending to the world of the utter depravity and perversity of America! Aren't our nation's enemies gloating over this further evidence that we deserve all the destruction they can possibly send our way!
The Christian community in Chicago ought to show itself, and stand up and be counted! Where are they? Are their any evangelical, Bible-believing Christians left in Chicago and its environs? I doubt it! The silence is deafening from the Christians in Chicago! Are you there, Christians? All I hear is snores and grunts and "pass me another banana split, darling." All that buzzing and sawing of the old mill, it makes me certain the churches of Chicago are all asleep on the job! Are you asleep? Wake up! Where is Moody Bible Institute? Where is Wheaton College? For shame! They used to be Evangelical powerhouses of the Gospel! Apparently, Christians in their suits and ties and clerical collars and crosses hanging down on fancy gold chains from their necks and little cross pins on their lapels and all that sanctimonious behavior, don't have the slightest impact on the godforsaken mainstream culture in Chicago, and don't mind it either. Well, Christians, get out of your comfort zones, get off your blessed assurances at Moody and Wheaton and the main evangelical churches, and go sing "The Old Rugged Cross" in front of Oprah's Harpo Studio complex, sing it like you mean it, before it is snatched from you by secular, atheistic laws!
"For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips, let them even be taken in their pride, and for the cursing and the lying which they speak."--Psalm 59:12.
"Do not make the pathetic error of clinging to the old rugged cross", huh? That's in your current course book. Is that what you really believe, Oprah? Apparently! Well, then, what exactly are you clinging to, what is going to save you when the Lord comes to take up his saints? Is He going to take you up too? Or is it your wealth, or fame, or good looks, or clothes, or your mega-million business, or the banks that hold your billions, or your glitzy, sleezy celeb friends you are clinging to, and you don't believe Jesus is ever going to come and upset your apple cart in Chicago? I would hate to be clinging to what you have--when the Lord comes to gather his covenanted, blood-washed, redeemed saints! I am so sorry you don't speak as one of them--and must take your lumps with the pagans and libertines of a depraved American culture.
Christians in the Chicago area ought to go and gather by the sign of her Harpo Studios (are they located on Hellbound Boulevard?), and sing "The Old Rugged Cross." Perhaps, it willl awaken her conscience to fact she has abandoned the Christian faith, abandoned Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, and is actively leading people to hell, not heaven. And, please, no demonstrations or misbehavior--just sing the wonderful old hymn reverently. That will be enough to send the devils around Oprah running for cover!
and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
and I will bless you.
"I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing.
"I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse,
and all the people on earth will be blessed through you."--Genesis 12: 2, 3
President Bush is at this moment in the news, visiting the flood stricken areas of Iowa and other states downriver and speaking to the victims, who have lost their homes, farms, towns, and communities, and their jobs and livehoods too. He has made the strangest and most fallacious statements, pinning the blame for the flood on Global Warming, when he actually is a prime cause, being the leader most responsible for dispossessing Israel of its own God-granted, eternally Covenanted territory, forcing Israel to hand over vital strategic heartland areas, such as the Left Bank (or Samaria, with Bethelehem, located just 5 miles or so from Jerusalem the capital!), into the control of Fatah, the terrorist organization Yassir Arafat headed before he died and Mahmoud Abbas took over where the old devil Arafat left off! He has also tried to get Israel to give up East Jerusalem to the terrorists! Not to mention the Golan Heights, formerly occupied by Syria, which used them to fire rockets and artillery shells right into northern Israel's defenseless farms and communities and towns. Why doesn't President Bush cede parts of Washington our capital to Chavez and Raoul Castro and the dictator of Iran and that nincompoop in Libya? Wouldn't that be only fair, after what we are forcing Israel to give up for President Bush's "Roadmap to Peace"? Better yet, why doesn't President Bush cede parts of his ranch in Texas, or the Bush family resort home in Kennebunkport? That would be closer to home, representing a certain amount of real sacrifice on his part. Let him experience what he is forcing on Israel's people, Palestinian Hamas and Fatah terrorists living in the next room, where they are all busy putting together suicide bomb back packs and signing up new recruits--Moslem girls they have first raped, and mentally challenged individuals, and young boys who think Mickey Mouse is a Jehadist-- for bombing missions!
Having just paid a visit to a family reunion in South Dakota, I found the people there (even the young people) taking a stand against the hoax of Global Warming. President Bush continues to push this hoax and the absurd idea that America ought to pay for cutting down our carbon emissions (as if we can affect the weather and world climate that way!), carrying this ridiculous, unscientific position to the latest G-8 conference. If he believes in it so strongly, then let the George Bushes pay for it! He has no right to penalize Americans for his own personal belief in a hoax. We will not pay for a hoax, throwing trillions of our GNP and our hard-earned money away on nothing--a pseudo-scientific theory that has never been proven, and which cannot be proven with present scientific instruments of measurement, admitted by climate scientists who should know what they can do and what they cannot do.
Before the Republican Party convention, it would be wise to write or email or call or pay personal visits to your representatives in the state legislatures and in Congress, if you are in the Washington area, to express your unhappiness with this hoax agenda of the President's. McCain may be set in concrete already on this point, even before the national party convention of the Republicans, but we need to express our total rejection of Global Warming agendas, beforehand, not wait and see a Republican nominee for president, in this case most like McCain, take up the banner of Global Warming at our expense (not China's or India's of course, who are two of the main polluters in the world, and rapidly growing worse). We have a voice, if we use it! If we remain a silent majority, then we will be run over and Global Warming will certainly become a Republican Party plank in the Party's official policy that Nominee McCain will carry with him to the final election. What a disaster that will be! He will lose nearly all conservatives and sensible Democrats and independents too, and maybe keep only Republicans who want a Republican in the Oval Office, regardless of the fact he espouses few if any Republican principles and beliefs. We might has well endorse and nominate the Devil to rule America, as Obama, a prince of darkness, is a twin to another prince of darkness, McCain, and it will make little or no difference which fiend ultimately walks and seats himself at the desk in the Oval Office. Either man will do incalculable damage to America, from ripping up this country from bow to stern for their own wierd politics, not the welfare of Americans. I see no good in voting for "the lesser evil", as some have suggested we evangelical Christians might have to do in the coming party convention and the final presidential election runoff. I don't vote for "lesser evils." Both greater and lesser evils are evil--and I spit on both, for they are serving the same master after all--and it certainly is not God. No, never! Rather, let us pray and believe God for deliverance from both these wicked, self-serving politicos. We can ask our God, a God of mercy and lovingkindness and truth and righteousness, to remember his Covenant with our forefathers the Pilgrims and Puritans, one more time--and first bring nationalwide repentance by unleashing the Holy Spirit across this whole benighted land. Politics and political leaders can not save us. They will only act now to enslave and impoverish us (just look at their already official programmes!). Only God can save us by delivering us from the power of these greedy men. King David, when faced with punishment for his sins, chose God's punishment over man's, when offered his choice. We can do the same. Nobody is more cruel, brutal, merciless, than a man when he has got absolute power over you. That is a guiding principle our forefathers always kept in mind when they instituted and drew up the constitutions and charters of government for their first societies and colonies and states in America. Our society is rushing into despotism, rule by elites and an all-powerful despot at the very top. We are rapidly being reduced to slaves and chattel. And most slaves are very, very poor, and can't even claim as their possession the thin pallet they sleep on at night, without even a blanket to cover themselves from the cold (just see how the black Christians, enslaved by Muslims, are treated in Sudan!). That fate can befall us here in America too, believe it or not, once we turn over all power to the greedy elites in Washington and New York and a tyrant, a dictator, installed in the Oval Office.
Prophecy has come forth that George Bush is America's last president. After him, there will be no real election, no real choice. There will be a ruler, but he will be our master, our votes will mean nothing anymore, for he will exercise absolute power over our lives, our families, our property, and our nation, even telling us what can be preached and what cannot be preached in our churches. Do you want to see that and experience that soon? I do not! So I pray day after day for God's mercy, and ask for repentance and revival, for there is no hope otherwise that good will come to us, and evil will reign triumphant in America. I don't want to live in a nation where Evil rules triumphant, where Satan is in charge, just as he was in charge until lately in Haiti, ruling through Dr. Duvalier, called Papadoc, who was a Voodoo ruler with a host of demons and ruthless killers obeying his commands as he oppressed his people and island country, taking poor people's babies' bread away with crushing taxes while he and his thuggish son-heir and family indulged themselvges in a glittering marble palace in Port au Prince the capital that was crammed with every kind of luxury.
The voo doo spirits that guided Papadoc Duvalier and his fiend-son did not die when driven out by dedicated, valiant Christian pastors like Bishop Jeune--they simply moved their headquarters to New Orleans, New York and Washington, where they have plenty chances to work mischief. Who do you suppose is supporting Oprah's seductive hold on millions of American women? Voo doo spirits, no doubt! Who is guiding American foreign policy? The same spirits! We are wobbling drunkenly toward destruction, following the words of such evil spirits, just as King Saul did long ago, consulting the Witch of Endor, only to find out that very act ensured his own doom and destruction by his enemies the Philistines. Witchcraft is endemic in America--a tremendous force, from coast to coast, and from the bottom of society to the top, we are all affected by witchcraft.
It is time to turn around--seek God in repentance, and plead God for deliverance from witchcraft spirits, materialism, and our horrible sins of self and greedy self-indulgence, not to mention our various kinds of abuses and immorality and pornography and violence and drug addiction. God can heal and cleanse and deliver us--if we will only turn to him in this desperate state we are in.
"THE MISLED AND THE MISLEADER"
"The misled and the misleader belong to Him.
He makes counselors walk barefoot,
and makes fools of judges.
He loosens the bonds of kings,
and binds their loins with a girdle [such as Saddam Hussain, as he was led shackled into a courtroom for his trial and death sentence later on].
He makes priests walk barefoot,
and overthrows the secure ones.
He deprives the trusted ones of speech [just as he deprived Sen. Kennedy of his infamous, anti-Christian, anti-morality speech, as I had prayed recently--Ed.]
and takes away the discernment of the elders.
He pours contempt on nobles,
and loosens the belt of the strong.
He reveals mysteries from the darkness,
and brings the deep darkness into light.
He makes the nations great,
then destroys them [take this to heart, O "Great" Superpower America!].
He enlarges the nations,
then leads them away.
He deprives of intelligence the chiefs of the earth's peoples [O United Nations and G-7 Conference Nations and WTO leaders and world elites!],
and makes them wander in a pathless waste.
They grope in darkness with no light,
and He makes them stagger like a drunken man."--Job 12:16b-25.
"Silver and gold have I none, but such as I have give I you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk."--Peter to the lame beggar at the Temple gate called Beautiful.
As he himself testified in public at the Temple gate to everyone listening, Peter had no money and was not ashamed of it, but by what happened, we know that he had true riches in Christ, and was able to release God's miraculous healing power--something no amount of money could buy!).
Jesus Christ first, and all the rest will fall into line.
"An Evangelical Christian is a person who believes that Jesus Christ is the sole source of salvation through faith in Him, has personal faith and conversion with regeneration by the Holy Spirit, recognizes the inspired word of God as the only basis for faith and Christian living, and is committed to Biblical preaching and evangelism that brings others to faith in Jesus Christ. Therefore, an Evangelical church is a church that is characterized by these same beliefs and principles. Some churches that are not considered Evangelical in faith and practice, such as the Roman Catholic Church, or the Eastern Orthodox Church, or the Anglican Church in the high church form, may contain members who are Evangelical."--World MAP Digest, Definition of Terms, p. 7, Winter 2008 Issue. Note: Many churches considered Evangelical, however, even by themselves, may not be Evangelical, because they are so centered on a particular doctrine or even a false Gospel like Positive Thinking or Prosperity. Those are not Evangelical churches, they are societies or motivational groups or do-good Kiwanis clubs, not the Body of Christ, even though there may be Christians in them.
He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that He may judge His people.
"Gather My saints together to Me, those who have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice."
"All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth, to such as keep His covenant and His testimonies."--Psalm 25:10
"I will hear what God the Lord will speak, for He will speak peace to His people and to His saints, but let them not turn back to folly."--Psalm 85:6
And the vineyard which Your right hand [Jesus Christ--Y'Shua--the Son of God] has planted, and the branch [Jesus Christ, Y'shua the Messiah] You made strong for Yourself.
It is burned with fire, it is cut down; they perish at the rebuke of Your countenance.
Let Your hand be upon the man of Your right hand, upon the son of man whom You made strong for Yourself.
Then we will not turn back from You, revive us, and we will call upon Your name.
Restore us, O Lord God of hosts, and we shall be saved!"--Psalms 80:14-19
