QUALIFICATIONS BY ANYONE WHO WOULD APPLY TO BE AN EMMAUS WALKER: SELF-HONESTY, HONESTY TO GOD, AND HONESTY TOWARD THIS SITE. NOTHING LESS.
Thank you, Lord of the Emmaus Walk and Road! Thank you, for coming to such as
us--and you will even forgive the hypocrites among your following disciples who honestly confess their hypocrisy and perfidy! That is how full of love and grace and mercy You are! We will never, never, never be worthy of such love and grace and mercy, but, nevertheless, take our wretched hearts and wretched lives and wretched Christian faith and wretched faithlessness and doubts and make them what You want and what you can use to extend your blessed kingdom! Forgive us this moment, our terrible hypocrisy, and
help us now walk as true, honest, real disciples. Amen!
THE EMMAUS WALK:
A Messianic School of the Bible
AN OPEN DOOR TO THE BIBLE AND UNDERSTANDING IT
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
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 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:
THE MESSIANIC BIBLE TEXTS--WHAT ARE THEY?
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.

GRATITUDE TO GOD CENTER:
The Supreme Court has ruled 5-4 to uphold the Congressional ban on partial birth abortion. This heinous and incredibly barbaric procedure, which is flagrant infanticide and butchery of a living human child, is now illegal in the U.S. Doctors who practice it will be sentenced to two years in prison (it should be twenty at least). Women who somehow get a partial birth abortion done will not be prosecuted (which is wrong, for they are completely responsible for their criminal act of having their child killed for their own convenience!). We thank God for this law, faulty and too lenient as it is. Adoption is always a wonderful way to give a baby to responsible, caring parents who are man and wife, not Steve and Steve, or Suzy and Suzy. The Congressional law was signed by President Bush in 2003, but Planned Parenthood (sic),
NOW, and other radical feminist groups agitated to get this law held up from
being made the law of the land by challenging it in their favorite way of getting round the will of the people and the electorate--taking it to the liberal, pro-abortion courts in filed suits. God knows what these wicked groups
did or how many millions they spent, to try and overturn the will of the American people once again--so that they could continue this terrible form of infanticide indefinitely.
Now we must do what these wicked and most cruel people in all the world fear most--that Roe vs. Wade, one of the most absurd pieces of judicial folly ever committed by the Supreme Court due to its fraudulent aspects--is next to be taken. We must pray that God will help us put Roe vs. Wade where it belongs, in the pit of hell with the devil's angels. We must see it overturned by the same Supreme Court that first authorized it. We have no hope to continue as a nation as long as this decision
remainds in force. There is no chance we will evade or escape God's final judgment on us. The Islamic terrorists in our midst are breathing down our very necks, just waiting for the right moment to unleash their full arsenal of suitcase dirty nuclear bombs on us! If we value our lives and our nation and its freedoms we will do all we can do humanly and spiritually to see Roe vs. Wade disanulled by the Supreme Court! May it be soon, Righteous God! We cannot stand one moment of living in the United States while infanticide for convenience is being practiced in tens of thousands of abortion (baby butchering) mills across America. This is a hell of country (an ante-room to hell at the least), and we are paying the terrible price of murder and violence daily, as long as Roe vs. Wade stands. We must not let it continue and our nation and our future be destroyed by wicked people who support the killing the helpless, unborn infants (millions of them black babies--all you black people and the NAACP out there!!!). We must do God's will and see this bill expunged from our law books--though 40 million innocent, beautiful babies have perished in the most cruel way, and 4,000 a day are being murdered in the womb as this is being written. We cannot undo the genocidal past, but we can change the future. How about you, Christian? How about you, Jewish friend? How about you, non-Christian? Let us change ourselves and also change this nation for the better. We can do it, starting this very day! It is our choice.

HERESY AND CORRECTION CENTER:
Oprah is known to tens of millions of almost fanatical women who adore her for her showing them the dirty laundry of the nation's misfits--while throwing in an equal dose of good deeds and philantrophy. This is exactly what the Bible forbids in Genesis, when God the Creator commanded Adam and Eve, our foolish First Parents, not to eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. We know they disregarded God's commandment, disobeyed him, and brought sin and death upon themselves and all their descendants--a total catastrophe for the human race and Earth that Jesus Christ died on the Cross to completely rectify, so we could be forgiven by the Father and restored as children of God. How can you drink from a well that pours forth both
fresh and brackish waters--or pure and impure? Yet that is what millions of American women do daily while watching Oprah's show. The price is terrible and catastrophic--for the knowledge of good and evil may taste sweet to the tongue, but when it goes down into the soul and the digestion of the mind it turns bitter as hell and damnation, producing all sorts of evil and contagious diseases.

site and remarks by the president of Coral Ridge Ministries on this patently unscientific
campaign by radical environmentalists and politicians and United Nations bureaucrats who want to drive America back into the pre-industrial 18th century, if Christians are uninformed and do nothing to stop such hysteria and manipulation and the politicians and bureaucrats are allowed to have their way with our country and its economy.

"Solid Rock, not Sand," Message
Notes by Ronald Ginther, on how to keep it simple and honest with God. We are clay, He is the Potter--not the other way round, as it is preached and promoted in popular Christianity today. Want to "get back on track with God?" Here's how, in a few words:
Ever heard or seen "Fool's Gold"? It shines like gold, but it isn't. It is "ersatz," phony, fake, faux gold--worthless, though it glitters and glows just like gold. Christ spoke about the tares among the wheat. They will look and grow like the real wheat, but they are tares sown by the enemy--and you cannot tell them for what they are by looking at them--they do all the things, sing the hymns in the church the right way, pray the right way, dress the right wasy, witness the right way, read their Bible and tithe and do all the things Christians do--and probably better! But they are fakes from the get-go, and only God can tell what they truly are. He is never fooled, though these folks are so good at acting they convince themselves they are the genuine article when they are just Satan's tares, or weeds, sown among the wheat, the children of God: Since most of us are long gone from the farm scene, but know what carnivals and circuses and county and state fairs have to entertain the taste buds, here is a poetic piece by Eben about Cotton Candy Christians:
