The "BIG GUY" was having the time of his life.  Never . . . in his wildest dreams did he think he would be on a roll like this.

So he invited 1,000 (yes, one thousand) of  his "friends", minions, yes-men, and money-grabbers to the biggest party in history.

Free food.  Free booze.  And lots of sex.

And why not????  It's all paid for by the taxpayers' nickel!  :)  How fun.

No group of people had ever seen such a bash!

Then, as though they were not having enough fun, "THE BIG GUY" decided to go over the top and do something no one had ever done at a party . . . But before we give the details . . . something awesome happened . . . and it was not even Halloween!


Yes, no arm, no body, no head, . . . just a hand.

And the hand began writing on the wall in the huge room where the one thousand party-goers had been whooping it up.

Yes, this was like a huge wet blanket at the party.  Even though many of the folks were a little tipsy, this sobered them up BIG TIME!  Even the "BIG ONE" sobered up.

All the laughter ceased.  There was not a sound in the room.  Total silence!

And within a few minutes the "BIG ONE" was murdered.  Hundreds and hundreds of people were butchered, tortured, raped, demeaned, and humiliated beyond imagination.  Actually . . . everyone at the party died . . . except one person.

We'll tell you about him later . . .
And . . . this is a true story!

Oh, . . . just in case you thought this had something to do with anything current . . .

The date was October 12, 539 B.C.  :) - - - a mere 2,552 years ago.

The "BIG GUY" was a man by the name of Belshazzar.

What did he do at the party that preceded "THE HAND" that wrote a message on the wall?

He decided that they were not having enough fun . . . so he ordered that solid-gold cups be brought to the party.  This way the party-goers would be able to say that they drank the booze from solid-gold cups!  Who else throws a party like this?

But . . . the cups were special cups.  They had been stolen from the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem . . . AND THEY HAD BEEN DEDICATED TO THE LIVING GOD!!!!!

Oh, yes, we learn from this story . . . Don't mess with the living God.  Make fun of religion as much as you want to.  Point out that so many "Christians" are hypocrites.  Have the time of your life pointing out how screwed up religious people are.

But . . . don't mess with the Living God!

As soon as the gold cups had been brought to the banquet hall, and the party-goers began drinking out of them, THE HAND appeared.

The "BIG ONE" had crossed the line and the Living God was a little more than angry.

And . . . unknown to the "BIG ONE", the Living God had set the whole thing up.

Even though huge bronze gates defended the city, an angry army found a way to break into the party.  The plan was ingenious!

And the timing of this entire scenario could only be God-breathed.

                                                                          Euphrates River
A river ran through the city where the party was going on.
The enemy army diverted the river, making it possible for their soldiers to walk under the huge brass gates that made the party hall "impregnable", and then butcher the one thousand party-goers . . . including the "BIG ONE".

You can read this whole story in chapter five of the book of Daniel . . . yes, in the Bible.  And it was Daniel who was the only one who survived at the party.

Those of you with discernment will recognize "Abaddon"
THE DESTROYER:  אֲבַדּוֹן
"Their king is the angel from the bottomless pit; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon . . ." (Rev. 9:11).

Yes, our nation at this hour is being systematically DESTROYED by this same demonic principality!

Don't believe it?  Then read it for yourself on this cylinder of
                                                                  This cylinder is in the British Museum.

Well . . . that was a long time ago.  But this is now:

Oh,  . . .  speaking of "DRINKING CUPS", check this out:

4 Simple Questions to Answer:
1. Back in 1961 blacks were called 'Negroes.' So how can the Obama 'birth certificate' state he is "African-American" when the term had not been coined yet?
2. The birth certificate that the White House released lists Obama's birth as August 4, 1961 & Lists Barack Hussein Obama as his father. No big deal, right ? At the time of Obama's birth, it also shows that his father is age 25 years old, and that Obama's father was born in " Kenya , East Africa ". This wouldn't seem like anything of concern, except the fact that Kenya did not even exist until 1963, two whole years after Obama's birth, and 27 years after his father's birth. How could Obama's father have been born in a country that did not yet exist? Up and until Kenya was formed in 1963, it was known as the " British East Africa Protectorate".
3. On the Birth Certificate released by the White House, the listed place of birth is "Kapi'olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital ". This cannot be, because the hospital(s) in question in 1961 were called "KauiKeolani Children's Hospital" and "Kapi'olani Maternity Home", respectively. The name did not change to Kapi'olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital until 1978, when these two hospitals merged. How can this particular name of the hospital be on a birth certificate dated 1961 if this name had not yet been applied to it until 1978 ?                   

4. Perhaps a clue comes from Obama's book on his father. He states how proud he is of his father fighting in WW II. Barack Obama's "birth certificate" says his father was 25 years old in 1961 when he was born. That makes his father's date of birth approximately 1936. - WW II was basically between 1939 and 1945. Obama's father was 3 years old at the start and 9 when the war ended.  Based on his own words about his father, Mr. Obama is a liar, or simply chooses to alter the facts to satisfy his imagination and political purposes (either way it still qualifies him as a "liar").

Giora Eiland, former head of the National Security Council (which advises the prime minister), said:  “One out of every ten homes in Lebanon now has a rocket launcher or Hezbollah weapons stored in it. Civilian homes are constructed in a way that allows the roof to open up for the firing of a rocket at Israel. Added up, the number of rockets and missiles reached is 200,000. Israel should reject the idea that it must fight against terrorist guerrilla organizations embedded in civilian areas, and return to the idea that it is fighting enemy states.”

"It is impossible to defeat guerrilla forces, Eiland argued; but if the enemy and its territory are defined as a hostile state, victory becomes possible once again. In 2006, we tried to do something impossible by hitting rocket launchers. If tomorrow there is a third Lebanon war and if we try to do the same thing, the result will be worse. We and Hezbollah have improved tactically."

"If war does break out, treating Lebanon as an enemy would end the conflict in three days, not three weeks. This entails bombing bridges and other state-affiliated targets, though staying clear of civilian sites like schools and hospitals. It is not right for us to accept the idea of fighting low-intensity counter-terrorism conflicts. We should move to an interstate conflict system."

Petra City
The "lost city" of Petra re-emerged August 22, 1812 when wealthy Swiss explorer Johann Burckhardt, disguised himself as an Arab, entered the area and came upon The Red-Rose City.  Although not mentioned by name in the Bible, Edom, Mount Seir, Sela, Mount Hor, and Bozrah are located in the same general area (Jordan).  The entire Petra complex, including the Ciq, is roughly twenty square miles in size.  This is 12,800 acres!  It is aptly referred to as "The Wonder of the Desert" and "The Red-Rose City".  Zechariah 13 tells us that "two-thirds" of the people will be cut off and die".  Israel's present population is about 7 million people.  If two-thirds die, then there will be a little more than 2 million Jewish people left alive.  Question:  "Could Petra hold 2 million people?"  Answer:  Can 12,800 acres hold 2 million people?  Yes!  Do the math.

"Two-thirds of the people in the land will be cut off and die . . . but one-third will be left in the land" (Zech. 13:8).

I am presently teaching a class  on the book of Genesis.  We are studying sentence by sentence through the entire book.  We came across the first mention of "RED" in Genesis 25.  Esau's nickname became Edom (Ge. 25:25 and30), which means "RED".  We became very interested in this because we believe very strongly in the principle of "first mention".  So I began to do some serious study on the subject.  This is the very area (now modern Jordan) where the "Edomites" settled.
Photo: A Bedouin man on a stone monument
                 The Red Rose city of Petra, Jordan, visited by one million tourists each year!
                          And . . . it is one of the seven modern wonders of the world.
                                  Interesting that God would choose this place.
                         Because when the O.T. was written Petra did not exist!
                       The last book in the Old Testament (Malachi) was written in 430 B.C.
                                        But Bozrah, Edom, and Seir, are mentioned.   
            These places are located in the modern nation of Jordan, and very near Petra.
Although the word "Petra" is not in the Bible, there is a subtle reference to it in Mt. 16:18 where Jesus says, "upon this rock I will build my church".  In Greek Peter is "petros".
This is what I came up with:

             Red, Scarlet, Crimson, and Carmine

Red:  Hebrew, “” It is the color of blood, rubies, and strawberries.  It is next to orange at the end of the visible spectrum of light.  Red is commonly associated with fire, beauty, blood, anger, danger, sacrifice, and passion.  In China red means happiness.  Red is mentioned 53 times in the Bible.

                                                                            Masai Warrior in Kenya
Scarlet: Closely associated with red is scarlet.  "" in Hebrew, it is mentioned 52 times in the Bible. Red in ancient Middle East comes from the insect “coccus ilicus”, the dried body of the female yielding coloring matter from which is made the dye used for cloth to color it scarlet or crimson.

 Crimson: "kar.mele" in Hebrew means red or carmine.  It is mentioned five times in four verses of the Bible (2 Chron. 2:7 and 14; 2 Chron. 3:14; Jer. 4:30, and, the most familiar, Isaiah 1:18: “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”

Carmine: not in the Bible.  It is also called “Crimson lake”, “cochineal” and “natural Red4”.
Petra's open-air theater provided seating for over 6,000 people.  Petra's open-air theatre could seat 6,000 people

Ge. 25:25: “The first one was very red at birth and covered with thick hair like a fur coat. So they named him Esau.

Ge. 25:30: “Esau said to Jacob, ‘I’m starved! Give me some of that red stew!’ (This is how Esau got his other name, Edom, which means “red.”)”
                                    Narrow entrance to Petra.

Ge. 38:28:  “While she (Tamar) was in labor, one of the babies reached out his hand. The midwife grabbed it and tied a scarlet string around the child’s wrist, announcing, “This one came out first.”—Perez (“breach”) and Zerah (“rising”).

Ex. 10:19: “The Lord responded by shifting the wind, and the strong west wind blew the locusts into the Red Sea.  Not a single locust remained in all the land of Egypt.”

Ex. 25:1-4:  “The Lord said to Moses, “Tell the people of Israel to bring me their sacred offerings. Accept the contributions from all whose hearts are moved to offer them. Here is a list of sacred offerings you may accept from them:

gold, silver, and bronze;
blue, purple, and scarlet thread;
fine linen and goat hair for cloth;

Numbers 19:2  Here is another legal requirement commanded by the Lord: Tell the people of Israel to bring you a red heifer, a perfect animal that has no defects and has never been yoked to a plow.”
                                                      Red Heifer
Joshua 2:21  “I accept your terms,” she replied. And she sent them on their way, leaving the scarlet rope hanging from the window.

1 Kings 3:22:  “But when they got up the next morning, the sun was shining across the water, making it appear red to the Moabites—like blood.

Psalm 75:8:  “For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them.”

Proverbs 23:31: “Don’t gaze at the wine, seeing how red it is,
    how it sparkles in the cup, how smoothly it goes down.”

Isaiah 1:18  ““Come now, let’s settle this,”
    says the Lord.
Though your sins are like scarlet,
    I will make them as white as snow.
Though they are red like crimson,
    I will make them as white as wool.”

Is. 63:2: “Why are your clothes so red,
    as if you have been treading out grapes?”

Ezekiel 23:14   “Then she carried her prostitution even further. She fell in love with pictures that were painted on a wall—pictures of Babylonian[a] military officers, outfitted in striking red uniforms.”

Ezekiel 28:13  “You were in Eden,
    the garden of God.
Your clothing was adorned with every precious stone[
    red carnelian, pale-green peridot, white moonstone,
    blue-green beryl, onyx, green jasper,
    blue lapis lazuli, turquoise, and emerald—
all beautifully crafted for you
    and set in the finest gold.
They were given to you
    on the day you were created.”

Joel 2:31  “The sun will become dark,
    and the moon will turn blood red
    before that great and terrible[
a] day of the Lord arrives.”

Daniel 5:29  “Then commanded Belshazzar, and they clothed Daniel with scarlet, and put a chain of gold about his neck, and made a proclamation concerning him, that he should be the third ruler in the kingdom.”

Nahum 2:3:  “Shields flash red in the sunlight!
    See the scarlet uniforms of the valiant troops!”
Watch as their glittering chariots move into position,
    with a forest of spears waving above them.”

Zechariah 1:8:  “In a vision during the night, I saw a man sitting on a red horse that was standing among some myrtle trees in a small valley. Behind him were riders on red, brown, and white horses.”

Matthew 27:28  “And they stripped him (Jesus), and put on him a scarlet robe.

Acts 2:20  “The sun will become dark,
    and the moon will turn blood red
    before that great and glorious day of the Lord arrives.”

Hebrews 9:19  “For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people, . . .”

Revelation 6:4  “Then another horse appeared, a red one. Its rider was given a mighty sword and the authority to take peace from the earth. And there was war and slaughter everywhere.”

Revelation 6:12   I watched as the Lamb broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake. The sun became as dark as black cloth, and the moon became as red as blood.”

Revelation 9:17  “And in my vision, I saw the horses and the riders sitting on them. The riders wore armor that was fiery red and dark blue and yellow. The horses had heads like lions, and fire and smoke and burning sulfur billowed from their mouths.”

Revelation 12:3  “Then I witnessed in heaven another significant event. I saw a large red dragon with seven heads and ten horns, with seven crowns on his heads.”

Revelation 17:3-4 “So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman (the imitator) sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.  And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:


Revelation 19:11-16  “Then I saw heaven opened, and a white horse was standing there. Its rider was named Faithful and True, for he judges fairly and wages a righteous war. 12 His eyes were like flames of fire, and on his head were many crowns. A name was written on him that no one understood except himself. 13 He wore a robe dipped in blood, and his title was the Word of God. 14 The armies of heaven, dressed in the finest of pure white linen, followed him on white horses. 15 From his mouth came a sharp sword to strike down the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod. He will release the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty, like juice flowing from a winepress. 16 On his robe at his thigh[a] was written this title: King of all kings and Lord of all lords.”
You may never have heard of Petra!  But it is one of the seven wonders of the modern world, located in the country of Jordan.  My Jewish friend in Jerusalem has been there more than 1,000 times.  Yes, this is not a typo.  He has been there more than 1,000 times.  Petra is also called "The Red Rose City", because it is carved from a red-colored rock cliff.
Near Petra is a city mentioned in the Bible: Bozrah.
Why do I mention this?
Revelation 14:20 predicts that blood (red) will flow in a stream for 180 miles and as high as a horse's bridle.  How could this happen?
The Bible also tells us that "overflowing rain", "hail", and mud will be mixed with the blood (red).

So I got out my map of the Middle East one day and did some measuring.
The hair on my arm stood up when I realized that from Haifa, Israel to Bozrah, Jordan is about 180 miles!  Part of this valley is Megiddo.  It is also called the Jezreel Valley.

Talk about the ACCURACY of the Bible!

                     Another scene from Petra.
I challenge you to look up every reference to Bozrah and see what the Holy Spirit reveals to you.  Bozrah means "sheep pen" in Hebrew.  Ge. 36:33; 1 Chron. 1:44; Is. 34:6 and 63:1; Jer. 48:24 and 49:13,22; Amos 1:12; and Micah 2:12.
An email in response to this article from Shirley Estill:

Dear Wes (,

Enjoyed your teaching on the blog. Haven't looked up the other scriptures yet. The ashes of the red heifer have always been one of my study subjects. The blood line through the Bible also. To me the Blood is Christ Himself Savior, protector, cleanser, redeemer, friend, life itself! Thanks for all your teaching and comments..wonderful."

The Nabataeans carved this "city" out of a solid red-colored rock cliff in about 300 B.C. Read mor about Petra:

The wealthy Swiss man who disguised himself as an Arab not only re-discovered Petra in 1812, but went on to visit Mecca and Medina, a city off- limits to "infidels".  Bet you've never been there!

"I cannot worship a guy I can beat up!  But I can worship the Mighty Jesus who treads the winepress ALONE."  See Is. 63:3, Joel 3:13 and Rev. 14:19-20.
Now you're getting closer . . .

Oh . . . the Sunday School crowd won't know what hit 'em when he shows up!

In the beginning God created . . .
He that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
The fennec fox or fennec (Vulpes zerda) is a small nocturnal fox found in the Sahara of North Africa . Its most distinctive feature is its unusually large ears, which serve to dissipate heat. Its name comes from the Arabic  word فنك (fanak), which means fox, and the species name zerda comes from the Greek  word xeros which means dry, referring to the fox's habitat. The fennec is the smallest species of canid  in the world. Its coat, ears, and kidney functions have adapted to high-temperature, low-water, desert environments. In addition, its hearing is sensitive enough to hear prey  moving underground. It mainly eats insects, small mammals, and birds.  In captivity it can live to about 14 years.
How amazing is our God!  His beauty is beyond our imagination!

                                                                  Sleepy, itchy time!

Diane Reidy dragged out of Congress for preaching:

Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler 
The O-man, Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit. No resume, no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works, no understanding of how the world works, no balls, nothing but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of real substance.
He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects. The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides, but is disclosed by his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people in Kenya . Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively.
What he isn't, not a genetic drop of, is 'African-American,' the descendant of enslaved Africans brought to America chained in slave ships. He hasn't a single ancestor who was a slave. Instead, his Arab ancestors were slave owners. Slave-trading was the main Arab business in East Africa for centuries until the British ended it.
Let that sink in: Obama is not the descendant of slaves, he is the descendant of slave owners. Thus he makes the perfect Liberal Messiah.
It's something Hillary doesn't understand - how some complete neophyte came out of the blue and stole the Dem nomination from her. Obamamania is beyond politics and reason. It is a true religious cult, whose adherents reject Christianity yet still believe in Original Sin, transferring it from the evil of being human to the evil of being white.
Thus Obama has become the white liberals' Christ, offering absolution from the Sin of Being White. There is no reason or logic behind it, no faults or flaws of his can diminish it, no arguments Hillary could make of any kind can be effective against it. The absurdity of Hypocrisy Clothed In Human Flesh being their Savior is all the more cause for liberals to worship him: Credo quia absurdum, I believe it because it is absurd.
Thank heavens that the voting majority of Americans remain Christian and are in no desperate need of a phony savior.
He is ridiculous and should not be taken seriously by any thinking American.

In Israel a 2,000-year-old seed sprouts into a tree:

Affordable Boat Act
The government has just passed a new law called: "The affordable boat act" declaring that every citizen MUST purchase a new boat, by April 2014. These "affordable" boats will cost an average of $24,000-$124,000 each. This does not include taxes, trailers, towing fees, insurance, fuel, docking and storage fees, maintenance or repair costs. 
This law has been passed, because until now, typically only financially responsible and working people have been able to purchase boats. This new laws ensures that every American can now have a "affordable" boat of their own, because everyone is "entitled" to a boat.  
In order to make sure everyone purchases an affordable boat, the costs of owning a boat will increase on average of 250-400% per year. This way, working taxpayers will pay more for something that other people don't want or can't afford to maintain. But to be fair, people who can't afford to maintain their boat will be regularly fined and children (under the age of 26) can use their parents boats to party on until they turn 27; then must purchase their own boat. 
If you already have a boat, you can keep yours (just kidding; no you can't). If you don't want or don't need a boat, you are required to buy one anyhow. If you refuse to buy one, you will be fined until you purchase one or face imprisonment.  For those that cannot afford one, they will get a free boat with a monthly check for all ownership costs listed above at taxpayer expense.
Failure to use the boat will also result in fines. People living in the desert, inner cities or areas with no access to lakes are not exempt. Age, motion sickness, experience, knowledge nor lack of desire are acceptable excuses for not using your boat. 
A government review board will decide everything, including; when, where, how often and for what purposes you can use your boat along with how many people can ride your boat and determine if one is too old or healthy enough to be able to use their boat. They will also decide if your boat has out lived its usefulness or if you must purchase specific accessories, or a newer and more expensive boat. (Cash for Clunkers guidelines will be used).
Government officials are exempt from this new law. If they want a boat, they and their families can obtain boats free, at the expense of tax payers. Unions, special interest and major donors are also exempt. 
If the government can force Americans to buy health care, they can force you to buy a boat....or ANYTHING else..'s that stupid...

Netanyahu prophetically correct at UN
Thursday, October 03, 2013 |  David Lazarus  

    It is yet to be seen whether or not Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech at the UN gained any diplomatic or political ground for Israel. The message, however, was certainly ground-breaking. On the floor of the United Nations General Assembly, in front of the nations of the world, Netanyahu quoted from the Bible no fewer than five times. Surely more than any other speech in UN history.
“Abraham, Isaac and Jacob”
Calling up the fathers of faith, Israel’s Prime Minister pronounced to all that it is not the United Nations, nor the United States, nor a slipshod “two-state solution” that will establish the Jewish people in their ancestral homeland, but only the promises of the God of Israel as spoken in His word to their forefathers.
For Israel’s Prime Minister, it seems, God’s word is as politically correct and relevant today as ever.
Have You Seen This Controversial Anti Obama/Navy SEAL Texas Billboard?
“The Persian king Cyrus issued a famous edict in which he proclaimed the right of the Jews to return to the land of Israel and rebuild the Jewish temple in Jerusalem.”
In this brilliant admonition of Iran’s anti-Israel madness, Netanyahu pointed out that it was the Persian King Cyrus himself who supported the return of the Jewish people to Israel. How shrewd of the Prime Minister to remind the Iranian people that they themselves were instruments in God’s hands to fulfill His plan to establish the Jewish people in the Land of Israel. What a stunning rebuke of a regime that regularly threatens to destroy the Jewish state.
Like the prophets of old, Netanyahu directly confronted that ancient enemy of Israel calling upon them to abandon the path of fighting against God’s will concerning the Jewish people. Fighting against the purposes of God will only backfire in the end. For “presidents of Iran have come and gone,” said Netanyahu, “and (yet) we re-established our sovereign state in our ancestral homeland, the land of Israel.”
“A wolf in sheep’s clothing”
Apparently, Israel’s Jewish Prime Minister also reads the New Testament. This quote taken directly from the Gospel of Matthew suggests that the true nature of Israel’s foes will be revealed by their actions, as seen in the following verse in Jesus’ sermon: “By their fruits shall ye know them.”
After systematically recalling a long list of the new Iranian president Rouhani’s murders, killings and terror over the years, Netanyahu exposed the “brazen contrast, this extraordinary contradiction, between Rouhani’s words and Iran’s actions.”
One could almost picture Jesus himself over-turning the tables in the Temple as Netanyahu tried to shake the world’s leaders out of their apathy and wake them up to the imminent dangers of Iran’s deceitfulness. Abandoning all politically correct diplomacy, he stunned the weary diplomats in the General Assembly, exposing lie after lie of Iran’s deceptive “charm offensive” and denouncing it as a “rogue regime.”
“Israel will stand alone”
Asher Intrater, a Messianic Jewish leader in Israel, pointed out that when Netanyahu declared in his speech that if necessary Israel would stand alone to defend herself against the Iranian nuclear threat, the Prime Minister was referring to a prophecy in Deuteronomy 33:28.
The prophecy reads, “Then Israel shall dwell in safety, the fountain of Jacob alone…happy are you O Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the Lord.”
Constantly under pressure from the nations of the world, Israel’s prime minister seems to have internalized the profound truth that more than any other nation in the world Israel must trust in the Lord for her salvation.
“I will plant them upon their soil never to be uprooted again”
Quoting from the Prophet Amos in English and then in Hebrew, Netanyahu made it clear to all who are listening that no threat, nuclear or otherwise, will remove Israel from the Land. For the Lord Himself has established His people here.
“The people of Israel have come home never to be uprooted again,” concluded Netanyahu.

You've got to love this:

An Israeli  Sense of Humor at United Nations set the record
straight. An  ingenious example of speech and politics occurred
recently in the United  Nations Assembly and made the world community smile.
A  representative from Israel began: 'Before beginning my talk
I want to tell you something about Moses: When he struck the
rock and it brought forth water, he thought, "What a good
opportunity to have a bath!" Moses removed his clothes, put
them aside on the rock and entered the water. When he got out
and wanted to dress, his clothes had vanished.

A Palestinian had stolen them!
The Palestinian  representative at the UN jumped up furiously
and shouted, "What are  you talking about? The Palestinians
weren't there then." The  Israeli representative smiled and
said, "And now that we have made that  clear, I will begin my speech."

                “Go into all the world . . .”  

Below: Joshua Park in Nepal with three believers who are overjoyed with the Audio Bibles sent to them from Full Life Crusade.  Brother Joshua delivered them and came home with this picture.  The note the man is holding says: “Wesley, thank you so much!”  

The Mountain Region, situated in the Great Himalayan Range, makes up the northern part of Nepal. It contains the highest elevations in the world including 29,029 foot high Mount Everest (Sagarmatha) on the border with China. Seven other of the world's highest mountains are in Nepal or on its border with China: Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Kanchenjunga, Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Manaslu.  80% of Nepal’s 27 million people are Hindus, so the gospel of Jesus Christ is much-needed in this far-away nation.  Only 1.4% are Christians.
 I will never forget when Pastor Pradhan drove Primrose and I to the summit of Tiger Hill so we could see Mt. Everest and Kanchenjunga.  One of the side benefits of being a missionary to the world is being able to see first-hand the wonders of our God!  Pray for the people in this small and remote nation.  And pray that the Audio Bibles will be mightily used by the Holy Spirit---especially among those who cannot read. The Kali Gandaki Gorge is 19,685 feet deep.  Located in Nepal, it is the deepest gorge on earth!

Brother Joshua has spent most of his life ministering in the Far East, especially among tribal groups that have been neglected.  Some of these places are so remote that they are very difficult to reach.  Joshua and I share the same vison of “going to the hard places.”  But a strange thing took place in Joshua’s life just a few months ago.  God spoke very clearly to him and told him,  Go to Kenya, Africa.”


  One of the things I admire so much about the South Korean Christians is their eager willingness to obey the Lord, even if their natural mind tells them something else.

And so he went . . .

While he was in a very remote part of Kenya he met an old man who had been doing missionary work there for many, many years.  Joshua did not know this, but the man was becoming so feeble that he was about to retire . . . and had been praying about turning his life-time work over to SOMEONE.  Of course, he wanted to give it to a very faithful man.

Shortly after meeting Brother Joshua the Lord spoke clearly to him:  This is the man!”

               Above: At his new 70-acre Training Center with Kenyan pastors and their Audio Bibles.

So when Joshua returned to the United States and was giving us the report about his trip he was able to tell us that God had not only done some wonderful miracles in Kenya as he had preached the gospel . . . he had also given him 70-acres  fully furnished with buildings!   Pray that this teaching center will be mightily used by God.

God took me to Kenya two different times.  Space will not permit me to tell all the wonderful miracles that took place over there.  But I will mention one special gathering in the remote village of Chuka.  Normally, we hold the big crusade in the afternoon, and then a smaller meeting at night.

But the “smaller meeting” turned out to be huge.  We could not figure it out, because the people normally are afraid to come out at night for fear of violence.  Finally, we got to the heart of the matter.  A 12-year-old girl, deaf and dumb from birth had been in the afternoon meeting.  Even though I had not prayed for her . . . as I taught and preached God’s powerful Word . . . she was instantly healed.  And . . . although she had never heard her native language before, she immediately began speaking fluent Swahili.  Only God can do this!

                    If you know anything about Africa . . . word got out fast.

                                                  And Jesus was glorified!

Thank you so much for helping Full Life Crusade take the good news about Jesus to the uttermost parts of the earth.  What a privilege it is to tell people about Jesus!

“Greater love hath no man than this . . .” (John 15:13)
Martha and Asher (my daughter and grandson) recently spent two weeks in India at the Ankoor Children’s home.  They led a team there to help in the orphanage and get some exposure to another nation.  By God’s grace they all returned home safely, but there was one very, very close call when Martha was almost trampled by an angry cow. 


This is not the real picture of Martha and the cow.  She was running so fast that she was not able to take the picture, so I substituted this one.  We thank God that she escaped unscathed!
After Martha returned to Tacoma she sent me this picture of Diksha, a six-year-old girl at the orphanage.  Our family immediately “adopted” her for the coming year.  You, too, can “adopt” a child at the Ankoor Children’s Home. 
Just email:  The child you choose will be housed in a pleasant environment, receive food, clothing and a Christian education. 
Peter and Linda Sims have been married for 30 years.  They are an amazing couple.  Peter is the oldest bull rider in the United States.  The Sims have adopted eight children from various countries and raised them here in the United States.
 A few weeks ago Linda met a total stranger in her store in West Virginia.  It was easy for her to see that the woman was very ill.  As she spoke with her she discovered that unless someone gave her a kidney she would die. 
Linda offered to pray for her . . . but then did something way beyond “pray.”  As she laid hands on Karen the Lord spoke to her and said, “GIVE HER ONE OF YOUR KIDNEYS!”
Without hesitating, knowing that she had
type “O” blood, Linda told Karen, “I will give you one of my kidneys!” The rest is history: Linda and Karen are alive and well.  Oh, boy, does this make the rest of us dig spiritually?  The first thing I thought, “Would I do that if God asked me to do it?”  And what about her husband, Peter?  Would you allow your wife to give her kidney to a total stranger . . . or to anyone?

Just as this newsletter was going to print, God allowed me to witness the baptism of my youngest granddaughter, Rachel. At 6 years old, she has decided to follow Jesus, and publicly acknowledge Him as her Savior.
Thank you so much for helping us in our ministry.
In His Service,
