‘Don’t get swallowed up in a cup of water’ ‘Do not create a storm in a tea cup ‘Truth is heavy, so few men carry it’ – Jewish proverb
Warning: This column may be hazardous to areas of mediocrity in your life!
I know that you have entrusted to me one of your most precious resources, your time. I promise to do my best by the grace of God, to be a good steward of the minutes we spend together. Thank you. Mucho gracias.
Great men are little men expanded. Great lives are ordinary lives intensified. Just one ‘little extra’ will turn your daily ordinary life into extra ordinary living.
Life is not a zero-sum game. Life is a choice not a chance. The willingness to go the extra mile actually does make a difference.
I pray from the depth of my heart that you will earnestly locate that ‘little extra’ that will make your joy complete and full.
COMIC RELIEF: just for laughs, ‘…a merry heart does good as medicine’ Proverbs 17:22 A newly posted pastor was visiting the homes of his church members. At one of the houses, he observed that someone was at home but refused to answer his repeated knocks at the door. Therefore, he took out his complimentary card and wrote ‘Rev 3:20′ at the back of the card and dropped it. When the offering basket was going round in the church the following Sunday, the pastor found out that his card had been returned. Added to it was this message: Gen.3:10! When the pastor opened his Bible to check out the quotation, he broke down with laughter. Rev.3:20 says behold l stand at the door and knock while Gen 3:10 says l heard your voice but was afraid for l was naked…..
“The man who walks with God always gets to his destination”. If you still have a pulse, you have a divine purpose to accomplish. Dr. Emanuel Tanya, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist–a man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, and owned a number of large industries and estates. His references to past history are accurate and clear and by far the best explanation of the Muslim terrorist situation. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism and terrorism. Very few people were true Nazis,’ he said, ‘but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of our world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.’ We are told again and again by ‘experts’ and ‘talking heads’ that Islam is the religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the specter of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam. The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history.
– It is the fanatics who march. – It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. – It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christians or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. – It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor-kill. – It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque.
– It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. – It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers. The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the ‘silent majority,’ is cowed and extraneous.
Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China’s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people. The average Japanese individual, prior to World War II, was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians, most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet. And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were ‘peace loving’? History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt. Yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence.
Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don’t speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun. Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late. Islamic prayers have now been introduced into Toronto and other public schools in Ontario, and, yes, in Ottawa too while the Lord’s Prayer was removed (due to being so offensive?! To whom? Not to the vast majority of Canadians!). The Islamic way is only peaceful until the fanatics move in.
In Australia, and indeed in many countries around the world, many of the most commonly consumed food items have the halal emblem on them. Just look at the back of some of the most popular chocolate bars, and at other food products in your local supermarket. Foods on aircraft have the halal emblem, just to appease the privileged minority who are now rapidly expanding throughout the world. In the U.K, the Muslim communities refuse to integrate and there are now dozens of ‘no-go’ zones within major cities across the country that the police force dare not intrude upon. Sharia law prevails there, because the Muslim community in those areas refuses to acknowledge British law. As for we who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts — the fanatics who threaten our way of life. Anyone who doubts the seriousness of this issue and just does nothing is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand. So, I beg you, extend yourself a bit and pray about peace; on and on and on in the hope that thousands, millions, billions world-wide, would experience enduring peace before they die. Please, think and pray about this before it’s too late!
As it stands today, the Islamic religion is the fastest growing religion per capita in the United States and Africa, especially amongst the minority races!! Last month I attended my annual training session that’s required for maintaining my state prison security clearance. During the training session, there were presentations by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim who each explained their beliefs. I was particularly interested in what the Islamic cleric had to say. So, the Muslim gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video. After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers. When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Muslim and asked: ‘Please, correct me if I’m wrong, but I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against the infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel, (which is a command to all Muslims) they are assured of a place in heaven. If that’s the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?’ There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation, he replied, ‘Non-believers!’ I then responded. So, let me make sure I have this straight ie. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can have a place in heaven. Is that correct?’ The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of a little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar. ‘He sheepishly replied, ‘Yes.’ I then stated, ‘Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine the Pope can command all Catholics to kill those of your faith or in addition, Dr Stanley ordering all Protestants to do the same in order to guarantee them a place in heaven!’ The Muslim was speechless! I continued,’I also have a problem with being your friend when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me! Let me ask you a question:
Would you rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill me in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and He wants you to be there with me too?’ You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame.
Needless to say, the organizers or promoters of the ‘Diversification’ training seminar were not happy with my way of dealing with the Islamic Imam, and exposing the naked truth about the evil in Muslims’ beliefs.
Therefore, the way things are going now in the next 10 years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. to elect the President! Enough Muslim voters in the UK to vote in the Prime Minister. In fact, by 2019 when Boko Haram had finished their depopulation of Christians in Nigeria, there may be no Christian candidates to stand for elective post in the next 5 years. Think about your children’s world. I think everyone in the WORLD!!! should be required to read this, but with the careless attitude of most believers, there is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us send it to relations and friends!
I read that, mere moments away from terrorist organized slaughter, Paris fans at Eagles Of Death Metal concert sang song glorifying the Devil. This is awfully shocking to me knowing that I cried out and mourned with the French over such terrorist dastardly act of wickedness. With their hands raised high in the air, Paris fans at the Eagles Of Death Metal concert made the Satanic “devil horns” salute without seemingly a care in the world. Amazingly, the song that was playing the moment the shooting started was called, ‘Kiss The Devil’, And here are some of the lyrics from that tune: “Kiss the Devil” – by Eagles Of Death Metal Who’ll love the Devil Who’ll sing his songs? Who will love the Devil and his song?
I’ll love the Devil I’ll sing his song I will love the Devil and his song
Who’ll love the Devil? Who’ll kiss his tongue? Who will kiss the Devil on his tongue?
I’ll love the Devil I’ll kiss his tongue I will kiss the Devil on his tongue
As the French death metal fans were singing along with those lyrics, offering their love to satan, the devil responded as the devil always does with death and destruction. Now, you go ahead and spin that any way you like, any way that makes you feel comfortable. But as a Bible believer, I know exactly what happened Friday night at 9:40PM GMT in Paris, France. People asked for a manifestation of the Satan, and guess what? They got one. It is safe to say that there were just about no Christians at the concert that night that the vast majority of those people were lost, unsaved people. I wonder how many of them were offered the life-saving gospel of Jesus Christ and turned their noses up at it? Probably more than a few of them. We see it all the time as we street preach.
To most lost people, the devil is a joke and Hell will be a beer and sex infused party. Nothing could be further from the truth. As those people bled and died on the dance floor of the Death Metal concert, they went from singing about the devil to meeting with death face to face. Oh…ooo…lovely souls! Should they have died??? Hell is no joke, it is absolutely not a party, and you do not have to end up there! Friday night they “kissed the devil”, and the devil kissed them right back. Don’t let it happen to you.
Billy Graham’s daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her, “How could God let something like this happen?” (Regarding the attacks on Sept. 11). Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said, “I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we’ve been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?” In light of recent events…terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare (she was murdered, her body found recently) complained she didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school ….the Bible says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK. Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn’t spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock’s son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he’s talking about. And we said OK. Now we’re asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don’t know right from wrong, and why it doesn’t bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves. Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with,
“WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.”
Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world’s going to hell.
Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.
Funny how you can send ‘jokes’ through e-mail and they spread like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.
Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.
Are you laughing?
Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you’re not sure what they believe, or what they WILL think of you for sending it. Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.
Prayer: Lord, touch my heart to touch the world with the good news of Your Kingdom.
Scriptural Reading: 2 Corinthians 2:1-11
This is your chance to make a difference…
The battle is the Lord’s but he needs a vessel to stand in the gap…. Are you available for Christ???? Please it is time to pray and look up. Our weapon among others is PRAYER! Yongi Cho, one of the most successful pastors in church growth said his seven point secret of success is: 1. Prayer 2. Prayer 3. Prayer 4. Prayer5. Prayer6. Prayer7. Prayer
The humble and amiable Dr Daniel Olukoya, amongst other things is a humble first class brain and celebrated end-time Apostle of Prayer and Deliverance said, ‘Effective prayer is all’ It was the Queen of Scotland that said, “I fear the prayer of John Knox more than Armies of Wales”, Why?
Because the effective prayer of a righteous man releases much power and makes you relevant before men (James 5:16).
It boosts and energizes your spiritual antenna. Whatsoever God can do, Prayer can do also!
Prayer opens you up to heavenly revelations, either through the WORD of God, or anyhow heaven chooses!
I pray, your life shall be clothed with prayer and the results of prayer.
Good morning! (Psalm 30:5)
