"A wise man scales the city of the mighty, and brings down the trusted stronghold."--Proverbs 21:22
He reads me when we meet;
Today he reads me in my home.
Tomorrow in the street.
He may be relative or friend,
He may be strange to me;
He may not even know my name,
Yet, he is reading ME.
The Associated Press--Jerusalem--The Dead Sea Scrolls, among the world's most important, mysterious and highly restricted archeological treasures, are about to get Googled. The technology giant and Israel announed Tuesday that they are teaming up to give researchers and the public the first comprehensive and searchable database of the scrolls--a 2,000-year-old collection of Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek documents that shed light on Judaism during Biblical times and the origins of Christianity. Officials said the collection is expected to be available within months for free.

"Indignation has taken hold of me bcause of the wicked, who forsake Your law."
January 25, 1941
To the Armed Forces:
As Commander-in-Chief I take pleasure in recommending the reading of the Bible to all who serve in the armed forces of the United States. Through the centuries men of many faiths and diverse origins have found the Sacred Book words of wisdom, counsel and inspiration. It is a fountain of strength and now, as always, an aid in attaining the highest aspiration of the human soul.
Very sincerely yours, Franklin D. Roosevelt
And it led to my being able to reach Watertown too--as all things tie together, for good or bad. Watertown is just one more step in my walk to heaven. I must go forward by faith here, and not rely on man so much. Man can help only in a limited way, and the rest is God's to do, I am reminding myself in my present difficulties. Am I depending too much on people, expressing too many of my needs to them, and not calling on God alone? I may have to repent of doing too much voicing of my needs to people. Praying more alone and reading the word, that is the way to continue without reliance on man instead of God. I know that but must practice it.
He hasn't failed me before this, and He won't now, despite the impossible look of this task here to get settled here, without a job or any real skills and my age handicap and so on (not to mention the burn-out of my savings back on the road to Miles City!).
I want to thank you all, though, for continuing to come to the Emmaus Walk in such numbers as you have been doing day after day. I plan to continue to add to the Revival Center featured articles and pieces, with Hauge's biography,and many other things I brought with me. I have such great things to share yet, and will share, God willing. I can use the Internet at the beautiful local library until my own internet connection is re-established. I may not be able to upload new pictures for a while, but I can provide the texts. God is good! [as of July, all this has changed, I am being roomed and boarded and given wireless, all for free in a Christian home until my apt. opens up for me to move in August 1--thanks to God].
Any prayers you find time to pray for me and my family in the home-going of our mother, also prayers for my own provision and residency here in Watertown, are very much appreciated. You can share in the spiritual fruit of this website that only God can produce by simply praying. God bless you richly in return!--Editor, Ronald Ginther
He's not turning tail and giving up, despite Generalissimo Obama's self-righteous, ex cathedra promulgations and excommunications--as he knows he is dealing with far less than a President Bush, really a boy-faced newcomer and pretender who is wet behind his ears while talking as if he were a genuine world leader of years of experience among the nations' rulers.
In short, Gadhafi knows a rube when he sees one, and has Obama's number right. Even if he may be a trapped rat, this rat knows his best defense is defense, fighting back when cornered, not running for it.
I take it as an operating rule, that anyone Obama detests and hates and tries to get rid of, I will root for, not because of the man's worth (for Gadhahi is worthless as a man), but because God hasn't yet said his time is up, even though Obama, acting as God, says so to the whole world community. Look how long he has lasted, despite the Obama-supported bombings and NATO mission to dethrone Gadhafi! Would Obama last that long if he were on the receiving end of such treatment? Hardly! Obama would run, if he had so much as a single blast-up anywhere near him. But Gadhafi is battle-scarrerd, he has been bombed before by none other than Reagan, and he survived. I still think Obama, because of his presumption and ignorance, has picked up a deadly snake and has given it one too many shakes while saying, "You naughty snake! I'll teach you!" Well, it might be the snake might yet teach Obama a hard lesson or two yet. We'll see. Gadhafi is already making Obama look like a big bully (which he is) and himself the mistreated underdog. But it will be worse when Obama is made to look the laughingstock of the whole Middle East when obama utterly fails to dethrone Gadhafi. When the world begins laughing at this impossible pretender to the U.S. presidency, his days are numbered short, indeed. May that day come soon!
Colonel Gadhafi, for all the horrendous faults and crimes of this ratty-looking Muslim terrorist-king (he had that Paris-to-New York American Airlines jet full of returning American Ivy League students blown up-- remember?--over Lockerbie, Scotland, which also killed 9 Scots on the ground with its wreckage, and he has been involved in terrorist funding and plots world-wide for many years, according to Wikipedia's profile of him), shows leadership and passion, unlike the tame and vapid, decision-evading President Obama, who routinely and even criminally avoids vital leadership roles while making constant appeals to the "international community" to make decisions for him. Obama and that putrid, hypocritical, immoral, lying "world community" are a farce when compared to even the disagreeable and somewhat ridiculous Gadhafi, for he stands up to all of them in pursuing his own power and interests in retaining control of his government and country. It would be wonderful if Obama would fight so fiercely for his own country's interests as Gadhafi fights for his. Gadhafi is Libya, he is the essence of it, not those so-called "freedom fighters" seeking to dethrone him. They will only succeed in putting a worse tyrant in his place. Yes, this is a fallen world, and the rulers are fallen, sinful rulers. Gadhafi is one of them, but yet not quite so fallen as President Obama and his friends in the "international community" and the United-in-Folly Nations. Compared to them, Gadhafi is looking better and better! Gadhafi, everyone can see, is evil top to bottom. That makes him less dangerous than a man many millions of Americans think is good, yet is evil in what he does. A Middle Eastern ruler described Gadhafi as a "split personality, both sides evil." But President Obama has a "good" image overlaying an evil self--which makes him far more deadly than Gadhafi, and far more deceptive and able to fool a whole lot of people already predisposed by their political bent to be fooled and used by him.
"ABORTION" (A EUPHEMISM FOR GENOCIDE AND MASS MURDER FOR PROFIT) HAS HAD ITS SKIRTS LIFTED AND ITS FILTHY NAKEDNESS EXPOSED (TAKING THIS GRAPHIC EXAMPLE STRAIGHT FROM THE PROPHETS!)! I am so grateful that God Almighty is demolishing a monster of the death culture, the Planned Parenthood abortion industry through defunding it of its tax support, which it never was entitled to in the first place, as it was public money, not money given it by private individuals.
Its lawlessness and sinister agenda are also being exposed nationwide through the scandals in its clinics, which are just the tip the iceberg, as Planned Parenthood has been operating against the laws of the land throughout the entire country, and needs to be banned and taxed or fined to death, just as happened to the infamous KKK (which Planned Parenthood causes to look like a nursery school in comparison).
in order to form a more perfect Union,
establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility,
provide for the common defense,
promote the general Welfare,
and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity,
do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

"I want to point out to you that is the WORD that the Lord confirms with miracles. If you want the right miracles, logic would indicate that you must have the right word. You cannot expect God to confirm a word that isn't the word He is prepared to confirm!" Amen! So we stand only on God's scripture promises He has given us for this case with our mother and the family! We therefore expect to see a supernatural miracle of his Resurrection Power demonstrated in her and on her behalf--speedily!
Wurmbrand's seminal book on Karl Marx tells how Marx was once a devout, committed Christian, along with his friend Engels, and yet the godless liberal theology they encountered at the seminary destroyed his faith, and both of these men turn to satanic cultism, and Marx (all his hope in Christ lost) wrote his godless, communist books, seeking to destroy mankind with communist philosophy.
Billy Graham's crusade messages contain the most powerful and cogent warnings to America you will ever hear from any evangelist and prophet of God. He warned America from the very beginning of his ministry, and the message grew more impassioned, not less. America did not heed his warnings, so we are where we are now, in the most deadly peril of destruction, with a president at the helm who works against America's best interests, tearing this nation down every way he possibly can. If you wonder how a great nation can be reduced to utter destruction, this is how: ignore God's repeated warnings from men of God like Billy Graham, go about your selfish life and don't seek God with all your heart and obey his commandments in your life and how you treat your family and relatives and the society around you. Don't take responsibility for your sins and get them taken care of by repentance and real change. Just continue on your pig-headed, rebellious way, thinking you're good and good enough to merit heaven, when that is the exact opposite of the truth and reality.
"Atheist's Son Offers Apology," Voice of Triumph, May-June 1982:
Austin, TX (AP)--A son of atheist Madalyn Murray O'Hair has renounced his mother's well-publicized beliefs and apologized for his part in the suit that ended prayer in the public schools.
"Looking back on the 33 years of life I wasted without faith and without God, I pray that I may be able to correct just some of the wrong I have created," William Murray of Houston said in a letter published Friday in the Austin American-Statesman.
Murray, then 16, was a plaintiff in the 1963 litigation that led to a ban on the classroom prayers.
"The part I played as a teen-ager in removing prayer from public schools was criminal," he said.
"I removed from our future generations that short time each day which should rightly be reserved for God. In as much as the suit to destroy the tradition of prayer in school was brought in my name, I feel gravely responsible for the resulting destruction of the moral fiber of our youth that it has caused," he said.
[Since that startling and heart-wrenching public apology in 1982, William Murray continued to faithfully witness for Christ across the nation for many years. I saw him speak once or twice on Christian TV. Tragedy followed. His mother was murdered in a terrible bloody, brutal way by a man who knew her and robbed her as she was trying to remove a fortune in gold from the offices of the atheism organization she founded. A sibling of William's was also murdered in the same incident. I recall from the TV program that William Murray said of his mother that she was a liar, and lied all the time, but she was totally unloved, and nobody loved her, and she died that way. Yet we all know Christ died for her and proved thereby he loved her more than anyone else could love her in this world. And I don't believe for a moment that Christians did not cross her path who didn't love her, but we all know we can choose to run from love or loving people--Ed.].
Listen and view Stanley's message, "Turning the Tide," on Youtube at:
Weakness is so costly! Brit-Nit-Wit PM Neville Chamberlain found that out with Herr Hitler, didn't he? Chamberlain's lost gambit, trying to placate Nazism instead of stamping it out when he had the chance and the power, cost Europe 55 million lives and continent-wide devastation. Why not just stamp out Islamic jehadism now, folks, while it is still relatively weak? Before long, it will have all the nuclear bombs it needs to wipe us out, and it will wipe us out once it has them. Then we will all pay dearly for not dealing decisively with Hamas, Hezbollah, Iran, the Moslem brotherhood, Syria, etc. We may pay with a loss of 55 million American lives, if the jehadists do to us what they say they want to do to us! We are in a battle, globally, not only for Western civilization, but our very lives. That war was declared against us by our enemies, the Moslem jehadists. Why ignore the fact? They mean what they say, that they will destroy America and Israel.
Now the immediate question is what will Israel? How will Israel respond? And when? We can be sure of one thing, that Israel will not go the way of politically-correct, Islam-placating weakness that Washington is promoting--as it knows that one strike of a nuclear bomb will totally obliterate the nation and kill practically all Israelis. They know they must take their enemies seriously--having learned a terrible lesson in Nazi Germany.
The world's nations, now including America under Obama, foolishly and arrogantly repudiate the Covenant God made with his Chosen People and Chosen Nation, Israel. They will ALL have to bear the dire consequences of that. In history they have already borne many of the terrible consequences (the world's greatest empires have attacked and fallen on the Stone of the Covenant Israel, thinking to destroy Israel utterly and forever, and been ground to powder by it, for they have fallen on God himself, attacking the Almighty, which is the most foolish and self-destructive thing anyone and any nation could ever do). The nations in the so-called House of Islam, so called (which is a euphemism for Den of Thieves, Liars, Violent Oppressors and Murderers, will not rest until they have eterminated Israel and the people too. It isn't the Jews so much that infuriates Moslems, but the holy, everlasting Covenant God made exclusively with Israel that they deny in their Koran and other writings, seeking the blessings of it for themselves at the expense of the Jews. They cannot rob God, however, for, make no mistake about it, He will vindicate His Covenant and his People the Jews.
America is foolishly led by aggressively humanist/secularists (read "Liberals" or "Democrats" for short) into joining the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel claque of nations today that are all headed for destruction, since they are flying in the face of the Almighty God, the God of Israel, Himself in attacking and dividing Israel to the point of indefensibility. America is already under severe judgment for this (witness the plagues of sickness, gangs, divorce, immorality, economic woes, public debt, loss of jobs to countries overseas, invasion of wealth-grabbing aliens, city-destroying hurricanes, tornodos and other storms), as America has already crossed the line, in its alignment and support of Israel's chief enemies and also forcing Israel to relinquish God-given, Covenanted territory (Gaza and the Left Bank) to God's own enemies. Shame on America my homeland that is bringing vast misery upon us all here for this terrible act!
Christians have for the most part given up the site completely to Islam, and do no contest it, though it is written in a Jewish history book I have, the latest one available, that an "eccentric [non-Jewish] Australian called Michael Rohan set fire to the mosque and caused some significant internal damage. I have no idea if he was really a true Christian or not, as some reports call him a "Christian fanatic," but he certainly was misguided, as he cannot do what only God intends to do, remove that usurper and all other usurpers from the site of the Temple in days to come. [Please go to the excerpt "The al-Aksa Mosque Goes Up in Flames," given in the notes to the article excerpt below by Herbert Novitsky--Ed.].
We Gentiles who truly know the Lord Jesus as Lord and Savior, as well as Jews who already know Jesus as Messiah and Savior, will see this done and rejoice when God does it. Though powerful and widespread now, Islam one day will be no more, for in the 1,000 Year Reign of Christ from Jerusalem his capital, there will be no religions, only the worship of Christ on this earth. Won't that be wonderful? You won't find organized Christianity, organized Judaism, organized Islam, organized religion of any kind. Only Christ will rule in hearts and lives of men, women, and children. Al Aqsa and the Hindu temples of India and Asia, the Buddhist temples and edifices, St. Sophia and the St. Peter's in Rome, they will all be swept away and forgotten. May that grand and glorious day come soon!
Jews for Jesus
Religion put Christ in the Cross (the Romans were not atheists, by any means, they were polytheists, which meant they believed in many pagan gods and tolerated all gods and religions (except maybe the exclusive religion of Judaism and also Christian faith believers), and the religious Jewish authorities were expressing the will of the black beast of Judaism). Cain is the father of these beasts, we learn from scripture. Cain begat Religion, and because of his his religion slew he Abel his brother when Abel's blood sacrifice of a lamb pleased God and his own "natural foods" vegetable and grain sacrifice (with a bad attitude no doubt of works-righteousness) displeased God. Karl Marx, who wrote the founding documents of communism, was a Christian who became an apostate from Christianity and a liar, but he said one true thing: "Religion is the opiate of the people." Religion is not only a drug, it is a deadly, soul and life-destroying poison. Religion killed the prophets of God. Religion kills countless people today, in acts of violence we have become all too accustomed to hearing about on the news. Religion in Iran threatens to turn the whole Middle East into a burning infero into to bring the Muslim messiah back from the well where he disappeared centuries ago, according to a Shiite Muslim legen. Religion is not a good thing, ultimately it enslaves and kills--and it has ushered untold millions of people into hell, and is doing so today, in fact. Anyone got religion? You need prayer, dear one!
God plays no favorites with religions, and Christianity is not a religion (I repeat, Christianity is not a religion!), though the religion that calls itself Christianity today is also a beast (I have no idea what color, as the other beasts were described to me in Israel by a missionary who dreamed and saw them). God does not love religion, he loves sinners, he loves people, his creatures. God loves a Moslem just as much as a Jew! His word says so! But God is Sovereign, and He chose the Jews as His special people for a special role, and the land of Israel for his chosen residence and seat of his throne in Jerusalem the capital.
True Jews, true Arabs, true Christians (and the false Christians too, of whom there are millions and millions) all must understand this fact about God.
Now about a true Arab who loves Jesus passionately: This former Muslim and his ministry is so "hot" and real as a Christian now that I can't wait a day longer to tell you about him, so you can go see him in action, as he carries out a secret operation in Pakistan to get a terribly persecuted family (with a little girl named Neeha who was butchered, literally, by her Muslim rapist) out to safe haven in Canada with a Canadian passport legally issued to them thanks to his working on Canadian legislators through his human rights organization, One Free World International. His name? Majed El Shafie. El Shafie Ministry is on-line. The video is available on his home page, with another link to it as well:
But is Islam true in its claims? Is Christian faith true? This needs to be decided by everyone involved. We can't have two faiths and two Gods. One only can be the truth. There are no ways to heaven, as Christ himself proclaimed to the world for all time--THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUE WAY. Muslims and Christians would certainly agree on this point! Most, that is!
The late Sir Lionel Luckhoo is still, via his writings, the world's expert on Islam, as you will find out by reading his messages on the primary burning questions of faith. He is what you call an "apologist" for our Christian faith, but he also knew Islam and studied it intensively, as he was intimately associated with it from his earliest years. Here is a second message from Sir Lionel, "Prophet or Son of God?" We have a beginning portion to spark your interest in perhaps the most important question there is:
The politically correct philosophy has dictated the debate terms about Islam vs. the West. It is incorrect, in that it declares "Radical Islam" is at war with the West and its freedoms and democracy. No, it is not "Radical Islam," it is simply, unquestionably Islam itself. Islam as Mohammed the Prophet set it forth in the Koran is at eternal war with the Jews and Christians and all religions that are not Islam. There is no co-existence that Mohammed or the Koran will accept, only fraudulent peace treaties until Islamic forces gain enough strength to sweep away all opponents and establish a worldwide Islamic state governed by Sharia law. This is the truth, unpalatable as it is to most Liberals and even to many Conservatives. But it is the truth set forth by Mohammed about Islam and its tenets and agenda for the world and everyone on earth. Deny that, and you deny the teachings of Mohammed and the Koran really mean what they say they mean--a foolish and risky thing for you do do! Al-Qaida is not "Radical," as you hear proclaimed by the politically correct press and media and even conservatives such as Sean Hannity, it is simply orthodox and true to Mohammed and the Koran, and every chapter and verse that promote unrelenting, all-out Holy War or Jehad against Christians and Jews and all other non-Moslems. There are only two "Houses," on earth according to the Koran: the House of Islam, and the House of War. Does that wake you up, friend? Either you are a Moslem inhabiting the "House of Islam," or you are an infidel inhabiting the "House of War," and YOU WILL BE WARRED AGAINST UNTIL YOU EITHER SUBMIT TO A LOW CLASS CITIZENSHIP UNDER SHARIA LAW AND HEAVILY TAXED, OR ARE KILLED.
Can lawyers be saved? Can they? After all, their job depends on their being able to
exclude the damning truth prejudicial to their clients and manipulate the facts--that is how they get ahead and get the best of the
rival lawyer in a case in court. Court decisions can bought this way, if you can afford the highest priced
lawyers to defend you. I learned how to do this as a debater in high school and college. Sometimes that could get very, very embarrassing, particularly when both opposing teams, Affirmative and Negative,
happened to quote from the same manipulated source! Well, the answer to whether such dishonest shysters can be saved
is: yes! Charles Finney, a lawyer himself turned evangelist, proved they could, and he also led
many lawyers to the Lord through genuine repentance. I wonder if they had to quit
law and lawyering after their conversions. Some probably did. Well, read the
account of the revival that captured some lawyers for God's kingdom:

Recently, I heard a liberal radio news talk commentator heaping his toxic scorn and vitriol on the Manhattan Declaration, so I had to see for myself what he hated so much, and here it is in its entirety:
AT A TIME
"She looks well to the ways of her household."--Proverbs 31:27
God has given us, as Christian women, the responsibility and privilege of handling many of the affairs of our homes. A godly woman does her best to make her family life and home run smoothly, and she is rewarded with praise from her husband and children. (proverbs 31:28).
Not only are we to be involved in the material and economic side of family life, but God has also given us a special sensitivity to the emotional and spiritual needs of our family membes. We can "feel" when someone is lonely or depressed, needs an extra hug, or just wants to sit and talk. We sense when one child needs a special "date" with mom or dad (or dad needs a special date with mom!). We can "read between the lines" when a child asks questions about life and death, heaven and hell, and realize they are giving deep thought to spiritual things.
As busy and hectic as life can get, we must never get too busy to take the time to meet these challenges. God has given us the privilege of "looking well" to the ways of our household, and this includes their spiritual and emotional well-being. If these needs are not met, we are missing our opportunities for lifetime and eternal rewards.
Ask God to make you aware of the needs of your family members apparent but you will be earning for yourself and your children eternal rewards.--Barbara Brody

resigned as a Director of Planned Parenthood in 2009 after she assisted in an ultrasound guided abortion procedure and saw a 13 week old baby in the womb fight for its life. The child's life was ended. Seeing the 13 week old fetus fight for its life was the last straw. Since leaving Planned Parenthood, Abby has been traveling the country sharing her story and motivating others to continue the pro-life fight. Her book, UnPlanned, is her true story about making the courageous choice to leave Planned Parenthood in favor of life.

He has shown clips of the "abortuary" Dr. Gosnell, who ran a now infamous, genocidal operation, performing perhaps tens of thousands of abortions on black women and even underage girls. His "clinic" containing dead unborn children stashed all through it in sacks and even many jars containing tiny baby feet, was closed and locked up, and he is in che ourt. You can see Gosnell on primetime news at the present time as well, or just google him. But Gosnell is just one of the many operating under the auspices of Planned Parenthood, who are committed to make as much money as they can (even unlawfully) off the poor, young, uneducated black women and girls of the inner cities, taking not just the lives of 1,500 black children a day, but in many cases sterilizing and infecting and maiming the women and girls in their filthy slaughterhouses. Rod Parsley presents some horrible statistics too: 15 million black children have been aborted since 1973. For the black American minority this is genocide and extinction, deliberately planned and carried out by Planned Parenthood and the abortion interests and politicians allied to it for the sake of the kickbacks and and campaign contributions Planned Parenthood makes to them in Congress. No wonder that Hispanics (which includes both citizens and illegals) are now the largest minority in America, supplanting black Americans. Does the Rev. Jesse Jackson care about this? He is always championing the rights of the oppressed and downtrodden, or so he styles himself. What about the genocide conducted against his own black people? I doubt he cares, as he makes too much money on his present political agenda, which has nothing to do with preserving or protecting or saving black unborn children from the most cruel deaths and thereby saving the future of his people in America. Short-term political and monetary advantage is his goal and reason for being--poor man! He is no friend of blacks! He is just one of their exploiters.
Another laurel wreath goes in tribute to the blind Chinese activist now in house detention with his mother and wife. He cannot go out, nor can his wife. Only his mother is permitted to go out and buy food. They are watched 24 hours a day, and access to them is cut off by police cars. What is his crime? He opposes the forced abortion policy of China. You can access the videos showing him at his prison-home and hear him tell in detail what the police are doing to him and his whole family. Go to Lifesites, the same that offered the videos on the East Coast Abortion Clinics offering help and counsel to a pimp (really an actor posing as a pimp for this sting operation), after he told them he ran a prostitution ring with underage girls.
Are you interested? Do you really want to see how absolutely nasty and cold-blooded Planned Parenthood is? I am grateful Amy's foul language was edited out. This young woman is a cold-blooded killing machine and lawbreaker masquerading as a young if rather plump, toilet-mouthed professional clinician. She would have done just great as a prison doctor or gas oven supervisor at Auschwitz, Buchenwald, Treblinka, or any of the other Nazi death camps. She has all the quintessential genocidalist Nazi characteristics, and can even joke about what she does--she is so lese faire about it. Go see her for yourself. Pray for Amy--she is a terrible person promoting a death industry for profit for herself, but beneath that lies a soul bound in Satan's chains, a lost soul headed straight to the lowest level of hell if she isn't saved, delivered, and turned completely around by the grace of God!

"I would not give one moment of heaven for all the joy and riches of the world, even if it lasted for thousands and thousands of years."--Martin Luther
"All heaviness of mind and melancholy come of the devil; especially these thoghts, that God is not gracious unto him; that God will have no mercy upon him, etc. Whosoever thou art, possessed with such heavy thoughts, know for certain that they are a work of the devil. God sent His Son into the world, not to afffright, but to comfort."--Martin Luther
"The First Commandment You must not have other gods. That is, I must be your only God. Question: What does this saying mean? How should we understand it? What does it mean to have a god? What is God? Answer: To have a god means this: You expect to receive all good things from it and turn to it in every time of trouble. Yes, to have a god means to trust and to believe in Him with your whole heart. I have often said that only the trust and faith of the heart can make God or an idol. If your faith and trust are true, you have the true God, too. On the other hand, where trust is false, is evil, there you will not have the true God either. Faith and God live together. I tell you, whatever you set your heart on and rely on is really your god." -- This text was translated for Project Wittenberg by Rev. Robert E. Smith and is in the public domain.

My own experience of the Resurrection this Easter season involves my 101 year old mother who was hospitalized two weeks ago and is now in a nursing home to gain strength through therapy and other means, with the aim to return her to her little home. It has been a big struggle to get enough liquids and food into her weakened body, which was generally weakened by four days in the hospital hooked up to tubes, that restored her potassium level and also hydrated her. She wants another glider flight with my pilot brother, and has a ministry too of soul-winning that is not over! Please pray for my dear mother to regain strength and some mobility, and we know that Christ who rose from the dead, and who earlier called Lazarus his disciple forth from the tomb after his being dead for four days, can raise mother back up off her nursing home bed to more years of service yet! To our Resurrection God be the resurrection glory!
"It was the fact of the resurrection of Christ that called the disciples to go out as burning young revolutionaries to change the world of their day. They preached that Christ was alive. This should be our message, not only at Easter but every day of the year."--Billy Graham, "The Risen Christ," Spring 2011
On January 8, 1956, Nate Saint and four other missionaries were killed by Indians of the Waodani tribe in the Amazon Jungle with whom they were attempting to share the Gospel. His sister, Rachel Saint, and Elizabeth Elliot (wife of another missionary who was killed at the same time), eventually went to live with the Waodanis, and they succeeded in converting them to Christianity [sic]. Recently, Nate Saint's son Steve developed a car that can fly. The flying car will make it possible to reach indigenous people in hard-to-reach parts of the undeveloped world where even regular aircraft cannot go, since they need a runway on which to land. Saint's car has received certification from the u.s. Federal Aviation Administration.--CNN.com
It is a deadly game they are playing, it is not merely a power and wealth-grab, it will mean the mass deaths of untold millions, just as Rachel Carson's vastly influential little, misinformed book "Silent Spring" was used not only to get DDT banned for the sake of saving the American Bald Eagle but to allow malaria to make a come-back over vast areas of Africa so that huge populations could be infected by the malarial mosquito and thus eliminated (this is nothing but genocide by these Western based eugenicist "environmentalist" nazis). But, thank God, they and their agenda have been exposed for what they are really about: killing off over six billion people, and leaving maybe five hundred million to roam amidst the dense grass and forests of a revived primeval earth. That is their insane dream and utopian agenda of today's Far Left or the elitist Socialist/Communists! Obama is their Commander-in-Chief, and Al Gore is his prophet! Prophet Al Gore, Nobel Laureate and Oscar Winner and International, Carpet-Bagging Swindler and Fraud, is leading the pack of all these self-serving swine in government, the media, the Ivy League universities and schools, and even the mainline churches and denominations. Their agenda: "return the holy but human-defiled mother earth to its pristine state sans homo sapiens. This makes them nothing but genocidal enviro-nazis who fly defiantly into the face of God our Creator, who created Man and animals, making a transcendent difference by putting in man the Image of God and making him ruler over the animals and plants and sea-life. To destroy what God has instituted is to defy God himself. The creature in these people has risen against the Creator, denying and attempting to dethrone him! We shall see how far they get with that, shall we not? I think the Bible makes it clear that Armegeddon will settle any last question you or anybody may have regarding who is greater and who is in charge of Planet Earth, God or his creatures.
"THE WORSHIP OF NATURE"
The harp of Nature's advent strung
Has never ceased to play;
The song the stars of morning sung
Has never died away.
And prayer is made, and praise is given,
By all things near and far;
The ocean looketh up to heaven,
And mirrors every star.
Its waves are kneeling on the strand,
As kneels the human knee,
Their white locks bowing to the sand,
The priesthood of the sea!
They pour their glittering treasures forth,
Their gifts of pearl they bring,
And all the listening hills of earth
Take up the song they sing.
The green earth sends her incense up
From many a mountain shrine;
From folded leaf and dewy cup
She pours her sacred wine.
The mists above the morning rills
Rise white as wings of prayer;
The altar-curtains of the hills
Are sunset's purple air.
The winds with hymns of praise are loud,
or low with sobs of pain,--
The thunder-organ of the cloud,
The dropping tears of rain.
With drooping head and branches crossed
The twilight forest grieves,
Or speaks with tongues of Pentecost
From all its sunlit leaves.
The blue sky is the temple's arch,
Its transept earth and air,
The music of its starry march
The chorus of a prayer.
So Nature keeps the reverent frame
With which her years began,
And all her signs and voices shame
The prayerless heart of man.
--John Greenleaf Whittier
2 Isa. 1:18--Come now and let us reason together, saith the Lord, though your sins be as scarlet they shall be white as SNOW.
9 Prov. 26:1--As SNOW in summer, so honor is not seemly for a fool.
16 Isa. 55:10--For as the rain cometh down and the SNOW from heaven, and returneth not thither but watereth the earth...so shall My Word be that goeth forth out of my mouth.
23 Prov. 31:21--She is not afraid of the SNOW for her household, for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
30 Rev. 1:14--His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as SNOW; and his eyes were as a flame of fire.
FEB - FROST
6 Ex. 16:14--Upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar FROST.
13 Psa. 147:16--He giveth snow like wool; He scattereth the hoar FROST like ashes.
20 Psa. 78:47--He destroyeth their vines with hail, and their sycamore trees with FROST.
27 Job 37:10--By the breath of God FROST is given, and the breath of the waters is straightened.
MAR - WINDS
6 Hos. 8:7--They have sown the WIND [how true for the Obama Administration!] and they shall reap the Whirlwind.
13 Psa. 147:18--He causes His WIND to blow, and the waters flow.
[Japan too is reeling from the effects of a gigantic water flow, is it not? North wind is blowing down from the damaged nuclear reactors toward Tokyo, too. God's word is not mocked, it is going to come to pass, and God plays no favorites among the nations.
27 Matt. 8:26--Why are ye fearful O ye of little faith? Then he arose, rebuked the WIND and the sea, and there was great calm.--Ray Smith
And hides its barrenness,
Cover my sordid grime with purifying grace so bright
Men see Thy holiness.
It is beginning to look like spring here in the Pacific Northwest, but the storms continue, with rivers on flood alert. Our lives too are experiencing personal storms of all kinds, are they not? If not, maybe you will soon be in the fight for your very life, both spiritual and physical.
Christ promises his disciples tribulation in this life. Tribulation you will get. But thank God, Christ will be with us in the storm, no matter how terrible it is. Remember, Christ died on the cross, terrible as that truly was, but He rose on the third day, and that was glorious, since we rose with him, while being accounted dead with Him!
Apr 3--Why seek ye the living among the dead; He is not here. (Luke 24:5,6)
Apr 10--Go quickly and tell His disciples that he is risen from the dead. (Matt. 28:7)
Apr. 17--It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. (Romans 8:34)
Apri 24--The Lord is risen indeed. (Luke 24:34)
July 3--Before they call, I will answer: and while they are yet speaking I will hear. (Isaiah 65:24)
July 10--Call upon Me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me. (Psalm 50:15)
July 17--I have made, and I will hear: even I will carry and deliver you. (Isaiah 46:4)
July 24--Fear thou not, for I am with thee: be not dismayed, for I am thy God; I will strengthen thee...I will uphold thee...(Isaiah 41:10)
July 31--I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go. I will guide thee...(Psalm 32:8)
That is absolutely true, as a description of the Gospel. It is the greatest demonstration of the powr of God on earth. David Hathaway's ministry to the former Soviet Union bloc nations has got to demonstrate this powser, as nothing else can transform lives. Thousands of healings occur as well as thousands of people reborn as new creatures in Christ under his preaching. The Gospel proclammation he gives is plain and simple and so powerful that miracles of healing spontaneously break forth. He claims to heal no one. He lets God do this, as God promised, when the scriptures promise that signs and wonders, true miracles of all kinds, would follow those who hold up the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world. That this is so, accounts for the doors being opened to him across the vast Eurasian continent and its hundreds of millions of people and dozens of different cultures and languages. It is perhaps the most diverse region on earth, but the plain, unadorned Gospel can penetrate every barrier (including terrific opposition and demonization by hostile orthodox churchmen resisting the Holy Spirit's move among the people, drawing them to freedom in Christ) set up by the state or opposing secularists and authoritarians. Where one door is slammed shut, another opens, even wider than ever! The KGB couldn't stop him. Imprisonment in a communist Czechoslovakian prison couldn't stop him. Russian police couldn't stop him. Irate, insecure orthodox churchmen with their fiefs of religion-shackled souls to protect couldn't stop him. For sixty years he has been preaching the wondrous, liberating Gospel, and his ministry grows, and is recognized by the highest leaders and heads of countries.
This is a worthy, fruitful, exciting ministry to support! Go to his Eurovision website, or to his magazine and subscribe to it free.
He doesn't go to church, he isn't a supporter of any cause or party or needy group, he just slides through life taking care of himself.
Most Christians fit this dismal, narcissistic template or type type to a "t," or is the letter a big "F" for Failure or Flunkee? We fail as Christians if we are like that, we flunk spiritually and every other way too, as God grades us spiritually first, the rest is not really eternally significant, as it is all passing.
Why were we put on this earth, to take care of ourselves, and that is it? That is our purpose? Wrong! We are put here to love God with all our heart, soul, and mind, and to love our neighbor as ourself! That is the whole law and the Prophets, Jesus said. We serve God, and serve man. It does not say in any way that we serve ourselves first, then everyone else, including God, gets the crumbs that are left over.
Go ahead and remain a non-tithing, non-involved, unengaged Prufrock, a type of bloodless, socially psychologically flat, bottomfish-person whom T.S. Eliot pilloried in his famous poem, "The Lovesong of J.F. Prufrock"--I forget this non-entity's, this cipher's exact initials. He never really committed himself, didn't really give into love in his life of anyone but himself and ended up wasting his entire life, and when he is an old man he realizes it, it is--alas, tsk tsk--too late for this first-class jerk to change. Is that the fate of our generation of Prufrockian Christians? Christ hates our type, he said so! He hates this type with a passion! He said he'd druther have us hot or cold, rather than tepid or lukewarm, and warns he will spit us out of his mouth! That is what he thinks of our Laodicean, Prufrocking Church culture and all our our mealy-mouthed, milque-toast Christianity! Go into most churches today in America and you find less enthusiasm than in the average mortuary service. Yet the same people can go to a ball game and scream their guts out for their favorite team. What frauds they are!
Criticise the televangelists all you like for their flamboyance and loud, garish, pentecostal fire--all you people of the Laodicean peanut gallery sitting on the sidelines, Sunday after Sunday in your stone dead churches and funerary denominations of the "frozen chosen"! Your day is coming when Christ the roaring, big toothed Lion of Judah will spit you out of his mouth!
Get real! Get a life! Jesus was no politically correct wimp, he was intense and passionate and manly and fully loaded for action, and he did everything with passion, controlled passion, but sometimes he could even take a horse whip and chase corrupt swindlers from the Temple, and did it twice too! What they felt on their backsides was a stinging foretaste of God's wrath! Jesus was no Prufrock, no soggy, tasteless milque-toast, no Man in the Grey Flannel Suit, no Senator Dole or Senator McCain who can make friends and compromise and hobnob with the Devil himself, apparently. You wouldn't find Christ crossing the aisles from righteousness to unrighteouness, not the way they do it! If he crossed aisles, he brought righteousness with him, along with mercy and grace, and made a real difference, he didn't water himself down, he didn't water anything down, whether sin or righteousness.
Let's start over, people of God, and repent to God and ask to be like Jesus, be conformed in His image, made unto the real Jesus. He is our only hope for change and real fulfilment.
I also admire Catholics for standing so firmly against abortion and for life and marriage as God intended; they have paid dearly in attacks against them for this stand. But let them speak for themselves about this issue, and how they are being treated in consequence, in this society today that is secularist-dominated and supposedly so "tolerant" when it is just the opposite toward people of Christian faith.
One day Germany in the 1930s was still a constitutional democracy, but the next day it was in the grip of a dictator and had become a police state-- yet it looked the same pretty much, and only gradually in the next few years did it become inreasingly apparent that a dictatorship had taken over Germany and the democracy and representational government was dead and gone.
it was too late then to reverse the process that led to it. Is it too late for America> Do we have to go the way of Germany, and now Britain, Canada, and the EU world empire?
there can be no political solution that will fix this--you see how the Republicans are floundering in Congress, they can't even roll back the liberals' big spending that has bankrupted the country--excusing themselves, by saying they can't violate Congressional procedures by defunding Obama's health care bill, etc. With weakness like that--after the Tea party landslide in the last election--the liberals are assured total victory if they just keep in the saddle, for what they are doing is working, they can overwhelm all opposition just as Adolf Hitler and his Nazi party did in Germany in the early 1930s, by hook or crook. He never won an election, he received only the most votes over other candidates. It was Hindenburg who gave Hitler the Chancellorship, which was all Hitler needed to seize all full powers of state and make himself Dictator. So too with the liberals. They cannot win elections, perhaps, but they can do as he did, fight and put themselves in position where they can seize all the powers. Judges will hand them whatever they want then. They need not ever rely on the voting public, as they have circumvented them as well as the U.S. Constitution.
The only stumbling block, the only impediment to their steam roller is this: prayer by saints of God. An Almighty God still exists to help us stop the juggernaut of the Democrat Party (which is not Democrat, but secular-humanist). All its affiliates, such as the media (which is essentially a political organization mouthing propaganda and disinformation, not valid news agencies), including the socialist billionaires such as George Soros and William Buffett and Bill Gates, may cotinue their support, but God is greater than this axis of evil. We may be besieged by all our enemies, and it looks completely hopeless, but God is still able to deliver us. But we must pray!
has published an official report claiming that the wall was not a part of the ancient temple' rather, it is the western wall of the Al-Aqsa Mosque [which is an institutionalized myth, as the site was originally part of the Jewish temple mount, followed by the St. Mary church in the Roman-Byzantine periods.--Ed.]. The report claims that Jews have lied about the age of the wall. The Israelis have responded that the report is a 'falsificationof history' and a 'serious stain on the Palestinian Authority."
But you and I need not be confused about what is happening daily in the Middle East, which is all Muslim except for the lone Star of David state of Israel. The demonstrations and sit-ins in the public squares of major Mideast capitals have young people trying to gain a voice and some share in government perhaps, even hoping to overthrow the brutal dictators who have ruled them for decades now. These Sunni Moslem governments and dicators (Iran's government is Shiite Moslem, and Shiites have sizable minorities in some of the Sunni-ruled or dominated Mideast states, which makes for a bubbling cauldron of tensions and rivalry and vendettas that have nothing to do with Israel, and would be endangering world peace even if Israel did not exist, make no mistake about it.
Israel, through no fault of its own, happens to be the pin lancing the boil of Mideast Islam. The pus is spewing out everywhere, as ugly and repulsive a scene as it can get!
But, make no mistake, the boil is strictly Islam's creation, its major contribution to the world, as Islam is at its essence, a non-productive, parasitical culture that preys on its own body when it is not preying upon its neighbors. What goes on in this pestiferous, toxic, deadly boil is what Mohammed started centuries ago in the armpit of Arabia (an anatomical place ideal for boils, by the way, so this is not said frivolously).
The vast, world-wide, suppurating boil of Islam has erupted in a whole gallery of horrors, the Moslem states, in North Africa and even across the Arabian heartland to Bahrein and the Gulf states. Good! Boils cannot heal until after they erupt and the body gets rid of the poisons. But what is not good, is that America's Obama administration has aligned us with the true losers, the so-called "freedom fighters" in the streets, the "people yearning to be free, etc." These people may want more freedom, but they have never known freedom and its responsibility, so what they can achieve at best is the overthrow of one dictator and the imposition of an even worse dictatorship to quell the chaos they have already created in opppressed Moslem society. Iran is the template. The Shah of Iran was deposed, thanks to Peanut-butter-and-jam Jimmy Carter's throwing U.S. support to the radical Muslim cleric, the Ayatollah, and withdrawing U.S. support from the Shah, our firm and loyal ally. That bit of foolish liberal treachery by Carter cost us dearly, with many American lives lost in subsequent attacks by Iran's terrorist operatives. It may cost us millions of American lives yet, before Iran is finally destroyed (I would think, by Israel after Iran and its anti-Israel coalition launches a nuclear strike or is about to). The U.S. (due to Carter's action) went with the Muslim clerics, and we lost the war for freedom in that country and the whole Middle East.
Nobody could trust the U.S. anymore after that, and we were despised in all the Arab and Iranian capitals. Iran took our consulate workers hostage, and we had to pay a ransom of billions to free them after Carter bungled two rescue attempts and then gave up in the most cowardly fashion, showing he has no business running a nation's affairs and can be trusted only with peanuts.
Iran later blew up our Marine barracks in Beirut, killing over a hundred Marines, and Pres. Reagan washed his hands of it all, and showed an uncharacteristic weakness and withdrew our troops and let Iran's Hezbollah get away with mass murder. Iran was emboldened to try for establishing a pan-Islamic empire ruled from Tehran, and is embarked on it at this moment, while working to make nuclear warheads at its reactors to arm its long-range missiles targeting European capitals and also our East Coast (they have ships that can carry the missile platforms and fire the missiles from out at sea, so they can easily reach Washington, New York, Boston, Miami, Philadelphia, etc.).
But back to the Sunnis, as the Iranians are Shiite. We must not be confused about the recent spate of revolts or demonstrations. They never knew democracy in those Islamic societies, so they cannot end in something good, they will inevitably produce authoritarianism, and worse, a Moslem brotherhood dictatorship. The Sunni Moslem rulers have kept the Moslem brotherhood sidelined up to now, but with Marbarak gone from Egypt and the Tunisian dictator gone too, Libya's Moammar Gadhafi has faced a stiff fight to hold on to his power against his own uprisings of disgusted subjects.
He is better than any Moslem brotherhood inspired dictatorship. There is a measure of sanity with these dictators. It was Gadhafi, after all, who saw what George Bush Jr. did to Saddam Hussain and recognized the writing on the wall was referring to him and he abandoned, voluntarily, his nuclear program to the U.S. to dismantle! Why, then, is he so bad now that we cannot let him continue in power? He has a measure of sanity, he recognizes superior power. The Moslem brotherhood does not recognize anything as superior to itself, and says so in its theological broadsides. It aims at world domination, by any means possible. It is not secular, as Mr. Clapper, head of U.S. Intelligence affairs in Congress, declared. It is essentially religious, and infinitely dangerous. Gadhafi was dangerous, but not infinitely. Gadhafi was not so mad (though he was mad), to think he could achieve world domination. Iran's clerics are that mad, and so is the Moslem Brotherhood. They are both infinitely dangerous. Since the Moslem Brotherhood is aiming at world domination, the utter destruction of the Western democracies and the substitution of their system of sharia law-ruled society for Christian and secular/democratic society, we can no more tolerate the Moslem Brotherhood and its agenda than we can tolerate the mad mullahs of Iran, who are apocalyptic, hoping that a war they provoke will usher in the return of the 11th Imman, a mythical Islamic messiah, who will establish a new Islam World Order on the ashes of the destroyed Western and American democracies.
So we cannot wisely support these street demonstrators, though we yearn for them to know true freedom. It is not possible for them, unless their nations turn to Christ, since their societies are based on Islam and its sharia law that breeds authoritarianism and dictatorship and bondage.
There is freedom only in Christ for the Mideast; there is enslavement and misery in Islam for the Mideast. We cannot change that inexorable, iron-fisted equation, as it is a spiritual one. God's laws apply absolutely to legalisms of the religious kind. Only in Christ can Moslems get free of Mt. Hagar, the law, and find true freedom for which they are now mistakenly setting themselves afire and fighting various Moslem tyrants with guns and rocketry. He is the Prince of Peace. They have no such prince, and never shall have one, except he be Jesus Christ the Son of God.
It is sad that freedom cannot be achieved in the Mideast, but it is sadder if Islam's 1.3 billion souls are not saved. Fortunately, millions of those precious souls can be saved, though politics is a dead-end for Middle-easterners. Millions are being saved, in fact, and Islamic clerics who know a thing or two recognize the fact but can't stop it from happening. Thanks to satellite television and the Internet, even radio and MPE units, the Gospel is getting in everywhere throughout Fortress Islam, where missionaries are hunted like turkeys if they dare to go there. Chinese missionaries are not deterred, however. Thousands are marching to the Mideast, intent to give their lives if necessary to spread the gospel to the captive billion or more souls of Islam. Chinese Christianity is on the march and cannot be stopped by any Moslem regime or Moslem brotherhood or Iranian ayatollah. "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the deaths of His saints," scripture says. These are precious witnesses, for they are willing to give their lives to bring Jesus' salvation to the Mideast, all of it, including non-Christian Israel. It is just a matter of time before Islam is conquered, by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Communist China too is rapidly turning Christian, and the rest of Asia will turn Christian too due to the unstoppable pentecostal movement that started at Azuza Street early in the 20th century.
The world will become Christ's, and Islam is fated to fail, just one more attempt to stop an Almighty God and His Christ from reigning over His own creation!
Jesus Christ first, and all the rest, starting with myself the Mighty and Proudly Self-Sufficient King, will fall into line.
Please return for the updated version, the rewrite of the Apostle's Creed according to how
the truths of the Confession are
really believed and followed by most evangelical churches and Christians today. It ought to be mind-blowing, to say the least!--Ed.
