BUT I HAVE LEFT THE BEST OF THE BEST FOR LAST: THE FACT THAT THE BIBLE CONTAINS THE BEST SAVIOR, WHO IS JESUS CHRIST, WHOM THE ENTIRE BIBLE REVEALS AS THE ONLY ONE, TRUE SAVIOR AND LORD OF THE WHOLE EARTH AND EVERY HUMAN BEING WHO HAS EVER LIVED OR WILL EVER LIVE ON THIS FALLEN, SINFUL PLANET! THIS BIBLE IS THE BOOK OF JESUS CHRIST, WRITTEN FOR HIS SAKE, REVEALING HIM IN EVERY ASPECT, DETAILING HIS WORK OF SALVATION ON THE CROSS, AND SHOWING THAT HIS RESURRECTION IS THE FINAL DIVINE PROOF HE IS WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS HE IS: the B.E.S.T. (BEAUTIFUL, EVERLASTING, SAVING TRUTH) PERSONIFIED!)---Editor and Founder, The Emmaus Walk
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
From the slopes of Mount Rainier, Washington, greetings from Ronald Ginther:
4. Certain very mouthy Congressmen have just been exposed for their accepting and using blood money from a terrorist supporting dictator, none other than the late Saddam Hussain, and then engaging in virulent anti-war propaganda against the U.S. and its leadership! SHAME ON THEM! Of these exposed Congressmen, Rep. Jim McDermott took 5k from a bogus charity funded by Saddam Hussain through an intermediary, a sneaking, human rat by the name of Al Hanooti (he is now under arrest in the U.S. for conspiracy), then bigger human rats, McDermott and his anti-American Congressional colleagues, went to Iraq and spoke against any military action by President Bush right before the second Gulf War. They were taking bribe money from terrorist organizations and terrorist-state sponsored "charities", yet they had the nerve to tell the U.S. president fighting for our national security against highly dangerous terrorist-sponsoring rogue regimes, what to do and what not to do. WHO MADE THESE LOW-LIVING, LYING, TRAITOROUS CONGRESSMEN PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES? These actions brand them as genuine, shameless traitors and liars and frauds and the Devil's little useful dupes. Voters must do the right thing and turn them out of office as soon as possible--they have made our nation (and my own Washington State) a laughing stock before the world! No wonder the Democrats are so vehemently against the war in Iraq and turn a blind eye toward the Islamic terrorists, abroad and domestic--they are being bribed by terrorists and terrorist states! Rep. McDermott (whom I am ashamed to say is from my own Washington State) took Saddam Hussain's UN-mismanaged "oil for the peace" allotment (billions were siphoned off to all sorts of terrorists and even the UN Secretary General Kofi Adnan's bank accounts!), which he stole from his own people who needed the funds for food and medicine, but McDermott's office puppets say he had no idea it came from this most bloody dictator! Yeah, sure, Congressman McDermott! I would sooner believe anyone's big fish story (the trout was twenty pounds, but he "got away") before I believe this Congressman who roots with a bull horn for our enemies and critizes his own country when our brave servicemen and women go fight for the freedom of the Iraqis, who were among the most oppressed and brutalized people on earth until our armed forces liberated them.

One of the most notable Russian martyrs of the 20th century was the young Army soldier Ivan Moiseyev, who never gave up his faith in Christ despite all the intimidation techniques, social manipulation, and outright torture of the KGB and the Russian army commanders inflicted on him for many months before they finally killed him, just to make him deny Christ his Savior and Lord and wipe out the evidence that their communism and atheism were false beliefs:
The question really needs to be asked by the churches' leaders: "Is our music truly spiritual, truly inspired, and led by the Spirit of God? Or is it something else? How is this music we use serving the Church, in the building up and equipping of the saints to be mature followers of Christ and to spread the Gospel to lost souls? Is the demeanor and manner of the singers and musicians drawing attention to them--and not to Christ? Who is getting the glory--God or man? Why are they named and presented in front for all to see and admire? Is that modest, is that Christlike? Then, if not, why do we make showpieces of the musicians and the singers and choirs?"
There is a big problem here, saints, when a major denomination pays song leaders as much as 300k a year! But even small churches may be out of step with God's spirit, in the way the music is being conducted, or in the songs that are sung in preference to truly inspired hymns. The manner too is very important--as the manner or style or method or even the showy robes of choirs may detract and lessen the spiritual effect and increase the carnality. It is high time for a change. We need to return to true reverence and true content and true spirituality in Christian music. Entertaining, showy, extravagant, popular productions--that is not what Christian music should be about. It may draw or attract carnal Christians and even crowds, but it will not please God, nor will it draw the Spirit of God down on the congregation to do His sovereign will.
Biblically, there was a real Goliath, living, breathing, spitting, cursing God--he was not just a colorful myth or a literary figure of speech. Goliath had four real brothers too. Five giants in total comprised this particular heathen family of giants centered in ancient Gath, one of the five leagued cities of ancient Philistia. We too face their modern, equally nasty versions--the Goliath of secular fundamentalism, and his brothers, Islam/False Anti-Christian Religiosity, Earth Worship/Environmentalism, Pagan Hedonism/Materialism, and Darwinism. These toxic giants rule Western societies and oppress hundreds of millions of people with their accursed values, lusts, falsehoods, deceptions, greed, murderous hatred, and intolerance. They are killers. They have already murdered millions of people, and fully intend to murder hundreds of millions more. Of course, Goliath and his brothers are all dressed up to look very nice before the TV cameras--and are shrunk down by spin masters to average human size--but they are the same old heathen giants that opposed God, opposed righteousness, and opposed the will of the One True God for people's lives. These horrible, foul, blaspheming, godless, atheistic tools of Satan rule in the White House, in the U.S. Congress, in the Supreme Court and the lower courts, in the mainline denomination churches, in the Pentagon, in the Ivy League colleges, the leading universities and the public schools, in the corporations--which leaves righteous, Godfearing little David rather out in left field, you would think! But Goliath's days, and his evil brothers' too, were numbered when God raised up a champion, a little shepherd boy named David, who was little only in the world's opinion, for he was God's anointed man of the hour for the deliverance of Israel from the awful bondage, oppression, and power of the seemingly unbeatable Philistines. Read I and II Samuel and get the whole story of David, Saul, and Goliath and his brothers. You will find this happens. David won, and all the others who opposed him lost--lost big! They were, in fact, swept right out of existence! Where is Philistia today? Where are the Philistines? They don't exist! The Israelis, the Jews, exist--thanks to God. Goliath's head ended up in David's trophy case! Why can't we follow David's example? Let's go and take the heads of Secular Fundamentalism, Islam/False, Anti-Christ Religiosity, Pagan Hedonism/Materialism, Darwinism, and Earth Worship/Environmentalism! We can do it--by trusting God in the battle.
Again: Why did "little David" win out against seemingly invincible forces? He simply trusted his God to supply whatever he lacked in fighting the foe. And that simple, but already tested trust of shepherd boy David, proved enough.
We too can be thought insignificant "nothings" like David in the sophisticated world's estimation. We are "only Christians." We are "only average Americans." We are only this or only that! Each of us only has one vote too. But God is the deciding factor, not us. If he is in our equation, the sum will always come out for us: VICTORY. It doesn't matter how powerful our foes may be--they are going to be defeated. They are born losers! We are born winners! That is the true reality.
If we humbly line up with Almighty God and His righteousness and plans, we are unbeatable. Every foe will bow the knee to God (and us too!). They will be defeated and fall; but we will stand with the Lord who will trample our foes and bring us into a broad place of triumph and celebration. So why not trust God? We face seemingly unbeatable forces in our Big Government today, controlled by forces that are not all all disposed to carry out Christian values and objectives--in fact, they are many times set to do just the opposite! But we can make them all bow the knee to God's desires and plans for this nation of America, if we will just remember God's faithfulness in the past when he brought us through some tough contests with "bears" and "lions". Maybe all we ever faced before were Teddy Bears and plush Pussycats, but at least that was a start for tackling bigger foes down the road. And bigger foes, be assure, will come against you--as they will to every Christian pilgrim travelling the road to the New Jerusalem.
Yes, we have "only one vote" as Christians, but David only had one "vote" to0, and he voted for God against the hitherto invincible Goliath--and God stepped in with the majority vote and David won handily! Votes of two hundred wicked, self-serving, bribed and corrupt senators and representatives in Congress do not decide the course of the nation, nor do they decide the critical issues, not when your vote for righteousness is cast.
Remember David. He "only" had one vote too. But he voted for God--not man--and that made all the difference! There may be a very serious matter on which you may want to email or contact the President even though his term is rapidly drawing to a much welcome close: Michael Savage, the valiant, Jewish conservative Radio Talk show host and a real, living type of Shamgar the Deliverer of Israel, has prophesied that before the close of the year 2008 and the President's last term, George Bush will come out in support of homosexual "rights" and favor same sex marriage. I do hope Michael Savage is mistaken on this issue (though he is dead right on most issues he takes up against the secular fundamentalists he says are subverting and destroying our nation and our freedoms). But President Bush was a close friend of Britain's last prime minister, a self-acknowledged Christian but a Christian embarrassed by it who pushed through the British Parliament anti-Christian, anti-morality and even hate speech laws that, in David Hathaway's view, has set Britain back 1,000 years! Another serious matter: President Bush is bent on forcing Israel to give up the Golan Heights to Syria, a rogue Islamic terrorist state, supposing wrongly that latest concession will win peace with Israel's enemies and success for his policy in the Middle East. Peace in the Middle East will never, never be won on political man's unrighteous terms, such as President Bush's unBiblical Roadmap to Peace is formulated upon. Lord, spare us these compromising Christians in high office who sell out our country's faith on the most crucial issues, and Israel too, for whatever reasons they may have politically. Peace can only be achieved by bowing the knee to Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace. If President Bush dares to blindly follow his foolish counsellors and advisers at the White House and the State Department, going down the route of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair's Benedict Arnold-like sorry example, I do believe he is signing the death warrant for this once free nation, not just Israel. We will have no more depths to descend to--we are at the bottom!
CHRISTIANITY ELEVATES WOMEN--NOT SECULAR FUNDAMENTALISM, NOT ATHEISM, NOT EVOLUTION, NOT MARXISM, NOT ISLAM. WOMEN'S RIGHTS ADVOCATE OF THE 19TH CENTURY, CLARA BARTON, WOULD HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CURRENT FEMINISTS AND THEIR AGENDA, SHE WOULD BE APPALLED. FEMINISTS ARE RADICAL POLITICAL ACTIVISTS WHO REALLY CARE NOTHING FOR WOMEN, DESPITE THEIR CLAIMS. THEY WOULD DENOUNCE THIS WONDERFUL WOMAN, WHO STOOD FOR ISRAEL AND THE JEWS' SURVIVAL AT THE COST OF HER HOME, FAMILY, AND HAPPINESS.
SHULA COHEN IS A CASE IN POINT. SHE IS EXHIBIT A. BUT WHO IS SHULA COHEN? WELL, SHE AND HER STORY OUGHT TO BE FEATURED IN EVERY SCHOOL IN AMERICA, FOR SHE IS NOT ONLY ISRAEL'S GREATEST LIVING HEROINE, BUT SHE IS ARGUABLY THE BRAVEST WOMAN SINCE RAHAB THE CANAANITE, OR MIRIAM THE SISTER OF MOSES, OR DEBORAH THE JUDGE OF ISRAEL, AND EVEN COMPARES TO MARY THE MOTHER OF JESUS!
THE FACTS THAT OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS (which Rush Limbaugh laughingly calls "public screwels") WILL NEVER TEACH AMERICA'S SCHOOL CHILDREN: SHULA COHEN WAS A COMPLETELY SELFLESS SACRIFICE FOR ISRAEL AND LIVED THROUGH THE INCREDIBLE, UNSPEAKABLE ORDEALS OF MULTIPLE YEARS OF TORTURE BY HER FIENDISHLY CRUEL AND BARBARIC SYRIAN CAPTORS IN LEBANON. THIS MAGNIFICENT HEROINE IS FEATURED IN THE FOLLOWING SERIES YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS. SHE COULD HAVE LIVED THE LIFE OF A WEALTHY WOMAN IN LEBANON BUT SHE GOT INVOLVED IN ISRAEL'S DEFENSE, REALIZING THAT SHE HAD OVERHEARD THINGS BEING DISCUSSED BY SYRIAN AND OTHER ARAB MILITARY LEADERS AT A PARTY THAT COULD SAVE ISRAEL FROM DESTRUCTION. RELEASED THROUGH A PRISONER EXCHANGE (WELL OVER A HUNDRED PRISONERS WERE GIVEN BY ISRAEL FOR HER SAFE RETURN) AND AT HOME IN ISRAEL TODAY, SHE TESTIFIES THAT HER ESCAPE FROM HER TERRIBLE, MERCILESS SYRIAN TORTURERS WAS CLEARLY A DIVINE MIRACLE. MODERN JEWS DO NOT NORMALLY TALK THAT WAY, BUT SHULA COHEN KNOWS A MIRACLE WHEN SHE SEES ONE--AND SHE IS A LIVING MIRACLE HERSELF! AGAINST ALL ODDS, SHE IS ALIVE AND FREE TO TALK ABOUT HER CAPTIVITY, TORTURE, AND FINAL ESCAPE.
Case closed! Let God and the Bible be true, and every man--however notable and distinguished and scholarly, be accounted a liar who dares to contradict them.
Please go to Part I of "The Great Heathen Army," by Ronald Ginther, to review the hard lessons that Britain's long, torturous experience with the attacking barbarian and heathen Vikings or Northmen can teach us, when we desperately need a guiding ray of light amid this gathering gloom and darkness and confusion.
We also owe, in large measure, the very creation and founding of a Christian American nation and representative government with limited and divided powers to Patrick and his followers!
But there is more! The outbreak of the Holy Spirit took place, not in England proper, but Wales, among the Celtic Britons, at the turn of the 19th-20th century. When leaders of the revival like the Welshman Evans saw that it had run its course, they did not try to keep it going in the flesh. God was faithful to their obedience, and then raised up the world-changing Azuza Street Holy Spirit revival in Los Angeles in, of all places, not a church but an old sawdusty warehouse! That phenomenal revival spread worldwide, creating the pentecostal revolution that has brought hundreds of millions into faith in Jesus Christ. This on-going revival and evangelization is sweeping the globe at this hour, and millions are coming to Christ at a much faster rate than any earthly religion including Islam. By 2050 the whold world will be completely Christian (no Muslims, Hindus, secular fundamentalists, whatever, in significant numbers), if the rate of people turning to Christ as Savior continues.
But there is more! Rees Howels, son of a coal miner, a humble, hard-working coal miner himself, was raised up by God to found a Bible school in Swansea, Wales, that was devoted to intercession. The students met, prayed, and interceded daily for hours, and the course of history was changed, repeatedly, as World War II was waged. This virtually unknown story can be found, beginning with the classic biography, Rees Howels Intercessor. This book ought to be in every Christian's bookcase. What wonders we see here! They are almost indescribable--for they almost equal in magnitude the Biblical triumphs of the greatest heroes and heroines in the Bible's pages. You can maybe catch a little of the excitement, a little of the thrill I find in Patrick's ordeals, pitfalls, sufferings, and eventual victories as God took a sinful youth and made him a spiritual giant who changed not only Ireland and Britain, but the whole world--changed them for the good, and did it humbly too!
This is what President George Bush's policy of placating the Islamicists in America has led us to: an F.B.I. that is powerless to do its job of protecting us from our enemies who are operating inside our borders. Martin Mawyer's booklet is riveting. I read it through in one sitting, unable to put it down. In my Washington State there is an Islamic paramilitary training camp in Onalaska! Are my legislators doing anything? Do they care? It is up to citizens then, such as myself, to hold their feet to the fire until they do! As for your own state, get this booklet and find out if there are camps operating in your own area--and root them out by putting pressure on the authorities and the legislators and your Congressmen! Get action! We must do this, or we are putting a noose around our own necks. You can order this sobering, shocking booklet on-line identifying all the Muslim Trojan Horses we have allowed to be dragged right inside the walls of our nation
On June 17, 1963, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that it would be unconstitutional for any school to authorize Bible reading and recitation of the Lord's prayer. But nothing was said against the teaching of propagandistic and anti-theistic evolution in the schools, a philosophical teaching which, using its false scientific "proofs," claims the Genesis record of creation to be a myth, and that man sprang from a primeval soup or pond slime struck by lightning. This stupid, unbelievable, rank hoax, the religion of atheists and infidels is being taught in the schools and colleges. Parents who believe the Bible should find out if the Christian college or public school to which they send their children uses these textbooks. Such teaching can rob their children's faith in God." (page 27)
"Later, Darwin asked Lady Hope if she'd share the Word of God with some of his friends in the garden summerhouse. She asked, "What shall I speak about?" He replied, "Jesus Christ and His salvation. Is that not the best theme?" Dr. Victor Pierce, an Oxford scholar, says, "When someone tells you evolution explains everything, tell them that Darwin discovered a better theme--"Jesus Christ and His salvation." If they still doubt, invite them to read his favourite book which says, "In these last days He [God] has spoken to us by his Son...through whom He made the universe (Heb. 1:2 NIV). The greatest discovery Darwin ever made was finding Jesus as his Saviour. How about you?"
"Infanticide (Baby Genocide) in America Center
Nothing, really. He was fully invested in the Heavenly Kingdom, not in this passing world kingdom! It is Paula White and Randy and everyone who are invested, not in the Heavenly Kingdom but the kingdom of this world ruled by Satan, for they ape the lifestyle of the rich and famous, and this we ought to question, not question the apostles who lived humbly and were poor men, despite their great spiritual riches.
Where is the witness of Jesus in these Christian leaders we see are so popular nowadays? It is a tragic thing to see such downfalls into materialism and showy consumption--and seemingly no repentance. Why must Christian televangelists act like Hollywood's gold-digging Elmer Gantry, the conscienceless shyster who was featured in the classic film as a type of the dishonest evangelists who are still fleecing God's flock for all they can get.
Romans 8:5-13, warns us about carnality and the flesh, and living in the flesh, serving carnal lusts, which only brings us death. Prosperity Gospel serves carnality and the flesh, and brings death--not spiritual advancement. We need to steer clear of these false teachers, however attractive and accepted they seem to be on Christian TV!
For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Because the carnal mind is enmity against God, for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.
So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
But you are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.
And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. m
But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
Therefore, brethren, we are debtors--not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh,
For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father!"
Let us go to the Ultimate Authority on this question, not the lips of lying or self-deceived "experts" who have something to gain by promoting a false gospel. This Ultimate Authority is the Bible (not Joyce Meyer, or Mike Murdock, or Kenneth Copeland, or Jesse Duplantis, or Marcus Lamb, or Joel Osteen, or Juanita Bynum or Paula White, or Paul Crouch, etc.), which we do not have to comment on, it is so perfectly clear in what it says about riches. As an introduction, here is a chilling verse (Prosperity Preachers be warned!), seldom preached on (I have never heard it preached on): "Some men's sins are clearly evident, preceding them to judgment, but those of some men follow later. Likewise, the good works of some are clearly evident, and those that are otherwise cannot be hidden."--Paul writing to Timothy, I Tim. 5:24-25.
Just below the above statement, Paul states the following about riches and the snares that come with them as a warning for Pastor Timothy and all the people and churches that Timothy had responsibility for:
"Useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself.
Now godliness with contentment is great gain.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content.
But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition.
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, and gentleness."
'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."'
'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.'"
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!
"Little prayer, little power, more prayer, more power, much prayer, much power"--quote from Pastor John Hagee's mother, who is a woman of powerful prayer at age 95.
Next, ever wonder how to deal with the seemingly omniscient, all-knowing claims of evolutionists about sedimentary and other layers of rocks being millions of years old, in order to establish Evolutionary Theory on what appears to be rock-solid scientific dating techniques? Most of us are not able to deal with such claims (even though we suspect they are not proven fact, even though evolutionists claim to know to know all kinds of specific things about what was going on in the far distant past with different species, which they cannot possibly know, not having been there), but Christians who are trained, professional, recognized in their field, and working scientists and mathematicians are able to question these highly problematic and even spurious claims of evolutionists, and have done it. See for yourself:
Environmentalism is now a world religion, a pagan faith with Al Gore as the current high priest, and thousands and even millions of priests and priestesses under him preaching the same message: Save the Planet from destruction from Western technology and pollution. Global Warming (broadened into the term "Climate Change") has come to be Environmentalism's chief sacrament. Join up with this new religion and you will lose your soul, as millions are doing at this time, since it is an idolatry, in which the "creature" (the planet and its life forms) is revered and worshipped, and God the Creator is not honored but dishonored by being completely ignored. Paul in his book Romans warns against this idolatry, which is an old one indeed. There is no such thing as "Mother Nature," but the earth is personified as Mother Nature, and thus has become an earth goddess who bestows life and health and healing to her children--if only they protect the environment through reducing carbon emissions, recycling, using low watt fluorescent bulbs (with high mercury content!), attaching solar panels to the roofs of their houses, buying and operating hybrid cars, filling up their car tank with ethanol the biofuel, and doing all the other things the children of Earth, or Mother Nature, are supposed to do in order to be saved and to "save the planet" from human contamination. Earth has been made an idol, and is worshipped. This is a false religion that replaces God with idolatry, and that brings death to the soul.
"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, may contain members who are Evangelical."--World MAP Digest, Definition of Terms, p. 7, Winter 2008 Issue.
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
