Just listened to a four tape series by Derek Prince. 1. spirit of witchcraft, 2. spirit of anti-christ, 3. Islam, religion of hate and deception, and 4. the church's victory.

Was surprised at how well this man taught the Bible.

I could not remember why we thought he was off, then I googled a clip and found he was into shepherdship teaching. Then I read where he said later on in life:

In 1969, he teamed with Bible teachers Bob Mumford, Charles Simpson and Don Basham, and later Ern Baxter, to lead what became known as the "discipling" or "shepherding movement." The movement became highly controversial as reports circulated of manipulation and control by leaders. Prince withdrew in 1983, saying, "I believe we were guilty of the Galatian error: having begun in the Spirit, we quickly degenerated into the flesh."

"In the light of this," he said, "I repented of my involvement and renounced the error. I deeply regret the damage that was done to the body of Christ and in the lives of many promising young men and women. "


This brother was a Bible scholar with an interesting background.

Prince was born in Bangalore, India, into a British military family. He was educated as a scholar of Greek and Latin at Eton College and Cambridge University, England, where he held a Fellowship in Ancient and Modern Philosophy at King's College.

According to his biography, as a student he was a philosopher and self-proclaimed atheist. His conversion came during service in the British Medical Corps during World War II, "through a powerful encounter with Christ," after he began to study the Bible as a philosophical work.

When Prince married his first wife Lydia in 1946, she had eight adopted daughters, six Jewish, one Arab and one English. Lydia, who died in 1975, went to Jerusalem in 1928 from her native Denmark to run a children's home.

He married Ruth Baker in 1978. She died in 1998 in Jerusalem where they had lived since 1981.


Its amazing how divided we were over doctrine in the body of Christ and no one ever considered praying for others that God would make a way of escape from any deception.

Anyway was blessed by this brothers messages.

I don't know if you have heard about the new documentary that is coming to theaters in your area. It is called: No Safe Spaces

Its about these groups of people going around america and telling us what we can say and can't say and they are working on taking away our freedom of speech.

I know someone who sat in a required government meeting and someone from one of these groups was telling them were not allowed to say "Sir" or "Ma'am", because this is offensive to people of various genders. It was a two hour long meeting telling them what was offensive and hateful speech. No longer can you refer to a boy as "he" or a girl as "she". The person was totally shocked by what they heard. This stuff is being taught in grade schools.

Any Rate this movie is exposing the removal of free speech in America. I got an email tonight saying that the movie would be in out area soon, and I noticed Alabama was on the list of states. I saw some clips of the movie, it seemed very informative. A lot of this New age thinking is being promoted on Campus's and they have courses on the subject of offensive speech. A lot of gay groups are trying to teach a new language and put fear on people who won't listen, they have the colleges working with them to supposedly stop all the hate speech.

You might want to check this one out when when it comes to theaters near you. I think you can google the movie trailer.

In Him,
Gary

This is a sermon by David Platt, pastor of The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, AL. I have made comments over the years about the shallowness of the 'denominational system' and so quick to lump them all together. Here is an example of a sound, Biblical call to repentance and a turning unto God....in a Southern Baptist Church.

If the link doesn't work every time, just go to YouTube and type in "repenting of sin and returning to God" David Platt and it will bring it up.

The angel Gabriel told Mary………

37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.

38 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word.
Luke 1:37-38 (KJV)

Behold your handmaid (your servant)

Tho I don't understand or comprehend this........

Be it unto Me according to thy word !

I pray as we read and study Gods Word that our attitude should be as
Mary’s was:

Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word.

Another weekend of violence, sexual inuendos, reveling, lust, and greed has finally past.

I read an article that said they expected 100 million people would watch the superbowl. One third of this country and the number is more likely higher.

We can all see what is important to the American people.

And that is Sin and the pursuit of sin. I can see why so many in other countries keep saying judgement is coming to America.

Those Aussies...


This is a real exchange I witnessed today between an American, an Austrailian, and a New Zealander (on a Christian forum).

So the American (Yankee) guy is challenging a statement by the Kiwi and says to the effect, "saying that that is true doesn't make it true any more than saying I'm your Huckleberry."

So the Kiwi(New Zealand) says, "Sorry pal, but your colloquialism goes right over my head."

An Aussie chimes in with, "Sorry mate, but for us down under, isn't everything over our heads?"


Speaking of Aussies, a Sincere shoutout to our fellow Christians 'down under'...


btw: being someones 'Huckleberry' means 'your man for the job', or 'your guy'...saying made popular by Doc Holliday in the western movie 'Tombstone'.

I've removed the test area and the maillist associated with it and since
nobody liked my innovative initiative I've removed it as a public option.
I of course will still be able to leap over tall buildings using
the software (designed for superheros) while the masses will still need
to use the subway system. Never fear, I will only use my power for good.

I should have realized that most were not ready for change, but I must

PSALM 149

(Praise to God for His Salvation and Judgment)

Praise the Lord!

Sing to the Lord a new song,
And His praise in the assembly of saints. (or on OO Smile )

Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
Let them praise His name with the dance;
Let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp.
For the Lord takes pleasure in His people;
He will beautify the humble with salvation.
(The Lord takes pleasure in His people and saves them. The people praised Him for military victories.)

Let the saints be joyful in glory;
Let them sing aloud on their beds.
Let the high praises of God be in their mouth,
And a two-edged sword in their hand,
To execute vengeance on the nations;
And punishments on the peoples;
To bind their kings with chains,
And their nobles with fetters of iron;
To execute on them the written judgment—
This honor have all His saints.

Praise the Lord!


A sister and I have been working on a huge project of transferring all of the FA music I have on tape to CD form. It has been very hard and time consuming, but I feel it will be worth it in the end. We will be sharing the music on OO as soon as we get it all finished.

I believe this music will be used to defeat the enemy by praising Him. Praise does not come naturally to me, especially when I am in the midst of trial, temptation, sorrow, and discouragement. However, praise is a mighty weapon that the enemy hates. I believe it is a miracle that I still have all of this music. God kept the music safe with all of moves I have had. With one house in particular, Rolling Eyes I am thankful the tapes were not destroyed. Huge mistake on the enemy's part....big. Because the enemy was not thinking ahead, now this music will be available world wide. Smile

Don't move that dial, we will have it here very soon!


"I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth."

Blessings,


Shalom,

GWB

With California passing a law that Christians cannot sing in churches we can ask the question; What is next?

There was a time when Christians were told to light a candle and say Caesar is lord, many refused and suffered the consequences.

Many in the churches seem to think eventually this covid 19 will be over and we can get back to normal.

What if it never gets back to what we call normal?

We all know that the Anti-Christ will one day rise up in power there's a good chance he is walking the earth today working through various governments to bring the world to the point where he is revealed.

Covid-19 has shown everyone that its possible to bring nations to their knees using fear and the media. I read an article this morning in our local liberal newspaper saying Christians say they believe in pro life but don't seemed to be concerned with the pleasure of singing which causes the spread of the virus.

It does?

When they signed the law that said you were not allowed to pray for thirty days, Daniel immediately went to his home and as it was his custom knelt down and prayed.

He resisted the law and chose to obey God.

We may be finding ourselves at a cross roads having to make similar decisions in the future. Is it possible?

After all we have been given God's word for some forty or fifty years now depending on when you came to salvation. At least its something to consider.

Either way as the Word tells us God will never leave us or forsake us He is for us and not against us. It may be a matter a time when they take down all Christian information on the internet. They already restrict some information on Face book saying it is inappropriate.

Our future is in the Lord's hands. Even so may the Lord count us worthy to escape all things coming on this earth. Come quickly Lord Jesus.

In Him,
Gary

I thought there was a tie between Chuck Smith and Chuck Missler then I ran across this bio.

Dr. Missler gained international recognition as a Bible scholar, author and teacher. Through an informal affiliation with Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa, California, Chuck became known for his insight into the integration of Scripture with science, history and prophecy. Over more than forty years, literally millions of Dr. Missler's teachings have been distributed and enjoyed. From cassette tapes to MP3 audio down loads, from VCR tapes to YouTube videos, the message of "The Grand Adventure" has been enjoyed by many.

Chuck Smith started Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa, California.

Why I don't agree with everything that Chuck Smith taught, I have been very blessed by his teachings. I'm amazed that these men were teaching out west about the same time HF was teaching in Indiana.

I don't know what to think presently concerning all the storm clouds gathering over Andrew Stroms Ministry. Google Andrew Strom.

There's a number of articles being written saying he is heading up a "new cult" of New Zealand followers. I did notice he has two web sites that he no longer allows people to post on and has opened a third web site that is a closed door member only club. You have to be signed on and go through a screening process to participate.

I thought this was maybe to weed out so many false doctrines that was constantly being posted on his site. I seen everything from people who believed in aliens to mormonism being promoted by his many visitors, So I thought personally it was better not to let just anyone post was the reason for the new site.

For the most part I always felt this man's ministry was valid but I did not believe he was a prophet as some claimed.

Why? He gave a major prophecy concerning a deadline that was to take place by the end of 2012, which never came to pass. He told his supporters that if this prophecy never came to pass he would have to apologize to the body of Christ.

"There was never an apology and the article with prophecy was removed from the site."

Anyway, I do not understand all the riff raff with the articles and the concern at this time. For the most part I believe this Brother has a heart for the Lord. It will be interesting how this unfolds, any minister who tries to make a difference always seems to be under tremendous scrutiny. After all what is everybody looking for, there will never be a perfect ministry that everyone can agree with?

Wasn't there a prophecy with a group of ministers and a giant snake that was trying to destroy them?

In Him,
Gary

I remember a number of times in our meetings people were told that eating what you wanted was an act of faith. It is?

I don't personally believe a person can live on junk foods, sugary drinks, and candy and expect to live a life of total health.

I do not know if we have ever had a generation of people that have the choices we do when it comes to food.

I know of a man who had diabetes, he quit taking insulin and would eat candy bars as an act of faith. They did not affect him in the beginning but eventually he died of diabetes.

Years ago as a young person I would drink four or five coca colas at work, it was hot and miserable out. About ten years ago or more I totally quit drinking soda, sweetened or diet. Now pop, and sugary drinks has no appeal to me whatsoever.

I just think we can make the message on divine healing to no effect when we try to abuse a situation saying, it is an act of faith.

Faith does not need to prove itself to make it true. Faith is the substance if we have actions afterwards that can be called an act of faith its because we are healed. The actions is you know its taken care of.

What I am trying to say is that some people had the mindset that if they did "something" that this proved it was faith. Not necessarily!

Faith is a knowing in your heart that God has dealt with it and nothing on this earth will stop it.

I hope this makes sense.

Here's something that I found to be interesting about how truths are 'Spun' to meet the agenda of those doing the 'spinning'.

I think most of us are aware of most of this, Bro. Freeman pointed a lot of it out years ago.

But there's a lot of info as to how the media manipulates the general public and influnces peoples opinions.

The god of this world is very clever and deceptive and so many are blinded by his tactics.

It's kind of lengthy and sounds a bit like it's written by one with conspiracy fears, yet there's much truth in it.

Perfect example, Swine Flu......"worldwide Epidemic", they (pharmaceutical companies) used fear to make hundreds of millions of dollars...how? The media.

I received this email yesterday from a girl my wife works with. It was given to her cousin and It blessed me so I thought I would share it with the forum. by the way the girl is 23 years old. I thought us young men were supposed to get the dreams but the Lord apparently thought different...




.




------------------------------------------------------------ --------------------





I had a dream recently that I feel that the Lord wanted me to share with some of you. I hope I portrayed it well enough for you all to fully get the picture of what I experienced… it’s changed me, and my hope is for it to do the same for you…



In my dream I was in a room, by myself, scared. Scared isn’t even really the correct word, I was petrified. I was sitting on the floor in a cold, damp cement room. I remember feeling cold, and eeriness of the air…I couldn’t figure out where I was or how I got there, but I could hear that there was a crowd chanting, cheering and screaming.

I noticed a crack in the wall and I crawled over to look. As I looked out, all I could see was thousands and thousands of people in side of what looked like a coliseum. As I look on, I saw that these people were actually crucifying innocent men and women. I could see the anguish, the horror, I could see the bright red blood that was being pored out of their bodies…

I fell to the ground weeping for them and trembling with fear…I felt so helpless, so unable to help those people, not to mention knowing that I was next. It was such a strong, horrible, REAL feeling. I wish I could find the words to describe it. Its something I have never EVER felt before… Then… I knew they were coming for me. With every step “they” took toward me, it was like an ecoh that echoed through my entire being… boom. Boom. Boom. I could hear my heartbeat, echoing though my head…faster and faster…beating faster and faster as they got closer and closer…

Then, all of the sudden, as they came and opened the door, a white light pierced through the darkness and there was a man in the room with a me. He had a presence, and authority I have never known before. Everything else stopped… He just gazed at me and smiled… He was so peaceful, graceful, and incredibly… breathtaking. I couldn’t see his face, but I knew exactly who he was…He gently walked over to me and bent over, picked me up, and held me. Just held me… Then he whispered in my ear… “I’ll go for you”



I woke up after that, and just broke. I realized that we have a responsibility as Christians to be praying, and interceding for the lost. What we see in the surface may not be as horrible as what I saw in my dream… but spiritually, people are being CRUCIFIED!! WHAT ARE WE DOING? It seems like such an impossible battle but we have been promised that we CAN do all things through Christ who IS our strength… Jesus is always right there… ready and willing to pick us up and take our load from us! No matter what it is, no matter the circumstance…Always just in time…always perfect. If we can only let down our walls, our prides, and our ugly selfish flesh and just let HIM take our burdens…let HIM take complete control of our lives… We will never be dissatisfied…ever!

Bless you all!
Ashley Norris

Here is where all of the bitter rants will end up so it would probably be a good idea to just start them here! I felt that we needed a section for this type of stuff just so we won't fall into that old hide-your-head-in-the-sand routine!

But the more delicate should probably stay out of this section!

Someone sent me a newsletter regarding the events of the last few weeks. I generally give things like this a quick read and delete but this one I thought was quite interesting. I know very little about the writer so no comment there.

Am I the only one who is tired of a 24-hour news cycle and being bombarded with newsletter opinions? I know we supposed to keep up but I'm just finding it all a little too much. In Israel they say concerning politics that for every two Israelis there are 3 opinions. That seems to describe the current political environment. Plus a 24 hr news cycle.

The point of the newsletter is that there is now starting a domestic war on terror with a great curtailing of civil rights. Francis Schaefer in his book "How should we then live" predicted that a left or right dictatorship would emerge in America. One thing for sure is that there are great changes happening and going to happen.

That a new War on Terror is coming is not a question of speculation and it is not in doubt. Those who now wield power are saying it explicitly. The only thing that is in doubt is how much opposition they will encounter from those who value basic civic rights more than the fears of one another being deliberately cultivated within us.

Okay, I couldn't contain my joy any longer... I've got the perfect bible for you all!

It's a completely waterproof bible. It's all plastic! No more worries about reading in the shower or tearing up over a stirring verse (you're not going to be able to tear it up easily, either!)

It's a bible for reading. No references, no notes, just the words from the greatest translators that ever lived--those KJV translators!

It is camouflaged for those times you want a little stealth when you're out there in the wilderness with others that may not be exactly enamored with you carrying that big-old family bible (you know, the one that has the gold-gilded edges and looks like a hammer?).

With this bible there are no distractions as you nimbly glide from one proof-text to another. You'll be able to stand there and take all that those abusive mud-slingers want to throw at you... knowing full well that you can hose the whole thing off as soon as your mission is finished!

Best of all, it floats. You'll be able to use it while baptizing that mob... never again will you be standing in the middle of the creek trying to remember that baptismal formula, you'll look like a real preacher when you reach down and fish out the real-preacher bible floating right beside you!

People will respect you now, and even if they don't, it matters not...remember, that tomatoes, rotten fruit, and even spoiled vegetables, wash right off, leaving you with a clean, white, pure KJV bible. No one will ever know that you were hip deep in mud when you stand up to preach on Sunday.

Hey, I didn't mention one of the best features... you know how bible shopping these days can set you back a pretty penny: This perfect bible is only $36.49!

You can get a black or brown imitation leather slip cover if you don't need the camo, or don't think you'll be doing any guerrilla warfare. You'll be out an extra $20 bucks or so, but hey, you might need a little respectability when rubbing elbows with those genuine-goat-skin-carrying comrades at the next Leadership Conference on Pentecostal Excesses.

By now you've decided that you've got to have one, so here is the link: (and NO! I'm not making a dime on this... I've read all about what my WaterProof KJV says about "filthy lucre"... just a minute, let me wipe that mustard stain off... Peter mentions the stuff once and Paul, four times! If only I had a waterproof keyboard I'd give you this report from my shower... a clean brother preaching from a clean bible while singing about that fount that makes me white as snow!)

Now you can be a real fisher of men with a real floating bible that's practically indestructible and you can do it while walking on the water without fear that you're going to ruin your bible... you may sink, but your bible won't!

Oh, the link:

https://www.amazon.com/Waterproof-Bible-Bardin-Marsee-Publis hing/dp/0984085734

Get one, you'll not be disappointed!

Blessings,
William

Francis Schaefer wrote a book on that subject. I've talked about it before but couldn't find the thread. I found it hugely interesting and am reading it again. He showed how starting in the reformation and the renaissance all of mans art philosophy science etc and the key moments in history that has brought us to the world we now live in.

The point here is that the film based on the book is on youtube. Last time I read the book I couldn't find the film. anyway its worth reading and watching.

A secret christian group at the heart of the American Gov't I had never heard of them until it was in my newsfeed this morning. There is a book as well (link below)

I am going to make an effort to find the netflix series and watch it although I'm sure I already know their take on it.

Pastor in Virginia. Went to be with the Lord on Tuesday. I knew him fairly well. Visited his church. He held some seminars up here in Canada some years ago.

A translation of the OT by Robert Alter


He did 4 other books and I have all of them. He is Jewish and as far as I am aware not particularly religious. He is a scholar and professor with an absolutely intuitive grasp of the Hebrew. I like reading history. I found his book called "The David Story" on 1,2 Samuel bought it and was captivated.

His translations are not intended to be a translation of the bible so us religious fanatics can understand the word. Having said that next time I start my OT bible reading in Genesis I'm gong to use it. He is just a scholar with a huge interest in the Hebrew text. Its interesting that the only other version he likes is the KJV. That puts him at odds with much of the christian world. Although not me!

From the article "I would add that the beautiful cadences, the elegant and pointed choice of words, the expressive use of syntax, the vividness of the language of the dialogues, are all essential elements of the reading experience of the Bible, and I’ve done my best to preserve them in English,” he said."

2000 years of Charismatic Christianity

By Eddie L Hyatt

The book . . . https://tinyurl.com/y7t7unah

From the preface

"Its purpose is to show that Pentecostals and Charismatics do have a legitimate history. It also suggests that instead of being on the fringes of orthodox Christianity , Pentecostal and Charismatic Christianity is in the mainstream of both biblical and historic Christianity"

From the introduction

"has it reappeared suddenly in the 20th century with no historical link to the past as some contend"

"The fact is that Pentecostals and Charismatics do have a legitimate history . . . found in the various revival and renewal movements that have emerged constantly in the life of the church"

He makes the point that the book is not cobbled together bits and pieces of church history but a solidly researched scholarly work that will stand up under serious scrutiny. Its also easy to read

Augustine's book "City of God" had a whole chapter on miracles. I read that and went and checked my copy. Strangely enough my edited version didn't have that chapter in it. I wonder why.

Martin Luther
Luther's remarks on the cessation of miracles were taken out of context. The author of the book believes that Luther had a direct experience of seeing the Lord just like Paul. 11 Cor. 12
Many of his followers believed he was a prophet. He also had prophesies fulfilled/prayed for the sick cast out demons etc. You sure don't read that in all the edited biographies of his life.

He gives a lot of info in the book. Also answers some questions I had about some supposedly heretical groups in history. The book has been out for 20 yrs. I don't know why I've never heard of it. Anyway the book is interesting and well worth reading.

To see how determined the left-wing liberal forces that be here in America are to keeping their ungodly laws intact, just look at what's happening with the president's selection for U.S. Supreme Court Justice, Brett Kavanough. Is the timing of these 'revelations' suspect? Of course they are. Can the democrats derail the selection process be creating doubt in this mans' character? Looks that way, but even if they fail his character will be tarnished in the minds of many forever.

God has an agenda, it can't be derailed, nor can any testimony or pressure from the left or from the right can change it, His will will be done.

My prayer is just that, GOD'S WILL BE DONE...(and I trust that's the prayers of all believers...not our 'christian' agenda that 'seems ' right and just, but God's choice.)


O.K. that's my 'getting into politics'....
