The Caller, a staute in Berlin
Oswald Chambers' writings ALWAYS touch my heart and next to the Bible, his My Utmost for His Highest is my favorite book. Yesterday, he wrote, "Without the sovereign hand of God Himself, nothing touches our lives. Do we discern His hand at work, or do we see things as mere occurrences?
Get into the habit of saying, 'Speak, Lord,' and life will become a romance. Every time circumstances press in on you, say, 'Speak, Lord,' and make time to listen. " And today he writes, "Our calling is not primarily to be holy men and women, but to be proclaimers of the gospel of God... And as long as our eyes are focused on our own personal holiness, we will never even get close to the full reality of redemption. Christian workers fail because they place their desire for their own holiness above their desire to know God... Paul was not conscious of himself. He was recklessly abandoned, totally surrendered, and sep…
One reason and most likely the main reason, is much of the major news sources are owned or being purchased by the house of Saud. Another answer is that the Palestinian Authority bribes and threatens western journalists. If even half of this article, "Why is there so much Anti-Israel Bias in the Press and The American Educational System? is true, it is shocking!
Report: Saudis spread hate through U.S. mosques - article about propaganda against Jews & Christians being mainstreamed within US borders
As P.A. incites against Jews, is the ground being set for new genocide? - article in Jewish newspaper
Americans For A Safe Israel - informative website

Ein Grund, und höchstwahrscheinlich der Hauptgrund, ist, daß viele der Hauptnachrichtenquellen dem Haus der Saud gehören oder von ihnen käuflich erworben wurden. Eine andere Antwort ist, daß die palästinensische Obrigkeit westliche Journalisten best…
Saudi Arabian Wahhabism is all consuming, cult-like form of Islam which employs a tireless procedure to brainwash their global fellowship into believing they are more special then others and to indoctrinate additional susceptible minds whenever & wherever they get the opportunity. Once inducted, cult members happily trade off their common sense and accept the dogmatic agenda. A ceaseless global awareness of the aspirations & dangers of the Wahhabi cult is the best deterrent to prevent the world from accepting any of the Saudi’s short & long-term goal of spreading Wahhabism & the fourteen hundred year Islamic conquest of the world.

Tabea and I walking to her home in the snow this week
Growing up in Burbank which is located in southern California, I saw very little snow and not too much rain either for that matter. Earthquakes, yes... heat waves... every year... but no snow. So now, living here in Berlin, I am so excited that we have been having snow all week! Not too much of it, but just enough to make it pretty on the trees. When I look at snow, it reminds me of what the Lord told Isaiah, "Come now, let us argue this out. No matter how deep the stain of your sins, I can remove it. I can make you as clean as freshly fallen snow. Even if you are stained as red as crimson, I can make you as white as wool. If you will only obey me and let me help you, then you will have plenty to eat." (Is 1:18,19)

Samuel Doctorian
"FEAR OF THE LORD IS THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM. Knowledge of the Holy One results in understanding." Proverbs 9:10
Here is a portion of Sanuel Doctorian's vision while on the Island of Patmos in 1998. "Then one of the angels with wings showed me Europe from one end to the other - from the north all the way down to Spain and Portugal. In his hand he had a scale of measurement. I saw him fly over Europe, and I heard the words, 'I am grieved. I am grieved. Unrighteousness, uncleanness, ungodliness - all over Europe. The sin has risen to heaven. The Holy Spirit is grieved.' I saw the rivers of Europe flooding and covering millions of houses. Millions drown. After seeing this, I read the news a few weeks ago. Czechoslovakia had the worst flooding ever. I also heard that the big river in China is in tremendous danger of thousands of houses being destroyed in flooding. I didn't know all this news until after I had seen the vision and heard what th…
Today, 27 world leaders - a king and a queen, presidents and prime ministers - will gather in Poland to mark the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp, where the Nazi regime murdered one million people, mostly Jews, during World War II. But as the world focuses on the past, many European Jews fear - to quote Sammy Ghozlan, a retired Calais police chief who now investigates anti-Semitic crimes - that "after decades of peace, the old taboos against anti-Semitism are broken. There is no future here for a Jew." Ghozlan, who grew up in the Paris suburbs and founded an organization to track anti-Semitic attacks, traces it to the start of the Palestinian uprising, or intifadah, against Israel more than four years ago. He also thinks a contributing factor is demographic: Arab immigrants now are 10 percent of France's population. (Source: Europe's Jews fear for their future by By Matthew Schofield)

Yehuda Bacon three months after liberation, and now
"But I had hope. I always had hope because that was the only thing that was left." - Yehuda Bacon
Czech-born Yehuda Bacon was just 14 years old when he arrived at Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp in December 1943. Six months later his father was killed in the gas chambers. His mother and sister, Hanna, were sent to another camp in Austria where they died two weeks before the war ended. Read his story here.

Yehuda Bacon drei Monate nach der Befreiung und heute
"Aber ich hatte Hoffnung. Ich hatte immer Hoffnung, denn das war das einzige, das übriggeblieben war." - Yehuda Bacon
Der geborene Tscheche Yehuda Bacon war gerade 14 Jahre alt, als er im Dezember 1943 im Todeslager Auschwitz-Birkenau ankam. Sechs Monate später wurde sein Vater in den Gaskammern getötet. Seine Mutter und Schwester Hanna wurden in ein anderes Lager in Österreich geschickt, wo sie zwei Wochen bevor der Krieg endete starben. Lies seine Gesch…
"The human heart is most deceitful and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is? But I know! I, the LORD, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve. " Jeremiah 17:910 (read about Auschwitz)

"Trügerisch ist das Herz, mehr als alles, und unheilbar ist es. Wer kennt sich mit ihm aus? Ich, der HERR, bin es, der das Herz erforscht und die Nieren prüft, und zwar um einem jeden zu geben nach seinen Wegen, nach der Frucht seiner Taten." Jeremia 17,9.10. (lies über Auschwitz (auf englisch))
"Look at the birds. They don't need to plant or harvest or put food in barns because your heavenly Father feeds them. And you are far more valuable to him than they are," Jesus said in Matthew 6:26.
The Lords speaks to us many times through nature and through animals. The above verse always is a good reminder of the Father's love for us, his children. And today while reading My Utmost for His Highest, Oswald Chambers says, ""Look at the birds of the air . . . Their function is to obey the instincts God placed within them, and God watches over them. Jesus said that if you have the right relationship with Him and will obey His Spirit within you, then God will care for your 'feathers' too." THANK YOU, PAPA!

"Seht hin auf die Vögel des Himmels, daß sie weder säen noch ernten, noch in Scheunen sammeln, und euer himmlischer Vater ernährt sie doch. Seid ihr nicht viel wertvoller als sie?" sagte Jesus in Matthäus 6,26.

"I LOVE YOU!" - Jesus
"And we love you too, Jesus!" It is important to reflect on God's Word and bask in His wonderful presence each day. He wants to daily AMAZE us all with His passionate LOVE and ABUNDANT PROVISION which we can then pour into others. Let FAITH rise up in us to BELIEVE God's Word and stand on His promises which are YES and AMEN! David wrote in Psalm 23 that, "The LORD is my shepherd; I have everything I need." Jesus tells us in Matthew 6, "Don't worry about having enough food or drink or clothing. Why be like the pagans who are so deeply concerned about these things? Your heavenly Father already knows all your needs, and he will give you all you need from day to day if you live for him and make the Kingdom of God your primary concern" and again in Luke 12 he said, "Don't worry about food--what to eat and drink. Don't worry whether God will provide it for you." Paul continues this same theme in chapt…

Jesus told this to Jaris right before He raised his daughter from the dead in Mark 5. Do you trust God? Here are a few verses on the word trust:

"I trust in you for salvation, O LORD!" Jacob said in Genesis 49.

"Help us, O LORD our God, for we trust in you alone," prayed King Asa when coming under attack in 2 Chronicles 14.

"But I trust in your unfailing love. I will rejoice because you have rescued me," David prayed in Psalm 13 - he often spoke of his trust in God.

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding," Solomon, David's son, wrote in Proverbs 3.

"You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, whose thoughts are fixed on you!" Isaiah prayed in chapter 26.

"Blessed are those who trust in the LORD and have made the LORD their hope and confidence," God told Jeremiah in chapter 17.

"We are made right in God's sight when we…
Today is the anniversary of legalized abortion in America and since then, we have lost over 45 million children. They have been thrown away like meaningless trash - truly a tragedy beyond comprehension. How long before we the church of Jesus Christ rise up and say "Stop!" to this horrible onslaught on the unborn? Get informed - there is a lot of information at my pro-life/pro-Israel website, Silent No More.

Diary of my unborn child - author unknown
Today my life began. My parents do not know it yet, I am as small as a seed of an apple, but it is I already. And I am to be a girl. I shall have blond hair and blue eyes. Just about everything is settled though, even the fact that I shall love flowers.

Some say that I am not a real person yet, that only my mother exists. But I am a real person, just as a small crumb of bread is yet truly bread. My mother is. And I am.

My mouth is just beginning to open now. Just think, in a year or so I…

The word "Najoth" means settlements or dwelling places and Najoth (or Naioth) was a monastery where the prophet's disciples lived. When David sought shelter from Saul, he went here. At Najoth, the prophetic presence of God saturated the area so much that the prophetic Holy Spirit fell on others who came near, releasing them into the prophetic flow of God (1 Samuel 19 & 20). The essence of the truth revealed by Jesus is the Spirit of all prophecy. May the prophetic gifts in each of us become more active & fruitful to glory of God!

Reichstag Vision - art by Simon Glimm (permission needed before reproducing)
Berlin is a key city being the capital of Germany and the Lord LOVES the people of this city and of this country! However, He is deeply hurt by the sin and rebellion in many hearts. Being the merciful Father He is, God is waiting, hoping for His children to come to Him. Germany is considered by many to be the Fatherland, but until the people turn to Jesus, they won't fullfill their God given destiny. So we pray in faith believing for salvation, healing, & freedom for the people in this land - may God's will be done and His Kingdom come in Jesus name! The above picture showing a pillar of fire above the Reichstag, the seat of the German federal government in Berlin, reminds me of Joel 2 which was also preached by Peter in Acts 2: The Lord says, "And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your…
There are "friends" who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother - Proverbs 18:24
A baby hippopotamus, swept into the Indian Ocean by the tsunami, is finally coming out of his shell thanks to the love of a 120-year-old tortoise. Owen, a 300kg, one-year-old hippo, was swept down the Sabaki River, into the ocean and then back to shore when the giant waves struck the Kenyan coast. Owen the baby hippo stares adoringly at his new mum. The dehydrated hippo was found by wildlife rangers and taken to the Haller Park animal facility in the port city of Mombasa. Pining for his lost mother, Owen quickly befriended a giant male Aldabran tortoise named Mzee - Swahili for "old man". Haller Park ecologist Paula Kahumbu said the pair were now inseparable. "It is incredible. A hippo has adopted a male tortoise, about a century old, and the tortoise seems to be very happy with being a mother," Ms Kahumbu said. "The hippo follows the tortoise t…
Habakkuk ended his prophecy with these words: "Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vine; even though the olive crop fails, and the fields lie empty and barren; even though the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty, yet I will rejoice in the LORD! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation. The Sovereign LORD is my strength! He will make me as surefooted as a deer and bring me safely over the mountains." And David wrote many psalms of thanksgiving - here is Psalm 100: "Shout with joy to the LORD, O earth! Worship the LORD with gladness. Come before him, singing with joy. Acknowledge that the LORD is God! He made us, and we are his. We are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and bless his name. For the LORD is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation."…
Sanctity of Human Life Week January 16-23
In 1973, abortion was legalized in the USA and sadly we have lost many innocent lives through this tragic process. Even before it was legal, a woman could get an abortion and I was one of those. It was a horrible experience I now regret but at the time in fear I thought it my only solution. Today there are pregnancy counseling centers which offer free help to those considering abortion should the mother want to keep the baby or give the child up for adoption. It has only been through my relationship with Jesus Christ and the forgiveness of my sin that healing has come to me. I believe one day I will see my baby in heaven but I grieve the loss of this life today. In Psalm 139, David prayed to God, "You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous--and how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter s…
"I was aborted and did not die." - Gianna Jessen
Aborted in the third trimester of the pregnancy, Gianna remained in a toxic saline solution for approximately 18 hours while in her teenage biological mother's womb. When she was finally delivered, at the surprise of the nurses, she was not dead, but alive! As a result of her ordeal, Gianna was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. She refers to this as a "gift" that keeps her daily dependent upon Jesus, a beautiful reminder of her constant spiritual need for Him. Read more here.

"Ich wurde abgetrieben und starb nicht." - Gianna Jessen
Im dritten Schwangerschaftstrimester der Schwangerschaft abgetrieben, blieb Gianna fast 18 Stunden in einer giftigen Salzlösung, während sie noch in der Gebärmutter ihrer biologischen Teenager Mutter war. Als sie schließlich entbunden wurde, war sie zum Erstaunen der Hebammen nicht tot, sondern lebendig! Als Resultat ihrer Qual wurde bei Gianna eine zerebrale Lähmung diagnos…
"You thought you were not wanted but I always wanted you!" - Jesus
Recently the Lord reminded me of a vision he gave me several years ago. In the vision, I was a crawling baby and Jesus was on his hands and knees, playing with me – we both were laughing and having fun. Then he picked me, looked into my eyes, and lovingly said, “You thought you were not wanted but I always wanted you!” After this vision, the Lord began doing a deeper healing of my heart and I was able to forgive those who had hurt me. I am so grateful for God’s unconditional love for us – aren’t you?

"Du denkst, du bist nicht gewollt, aber ich habe dich immer gewollt!" - Jesus
Kürzlich erinnerte mich der Herr an eine Vision, die er mir vor etlichen Jahren gegeben hat. In der Vision war ich ein krabbelndes Baby und Jesus war auf seinen Händen und Knien und spielte mit mir - wir lachten beide und hatten Spaß. Dann nahm er mich hoch, schaute in meine Augen und sagte voll Liebe: "Du dachtest, d…
It happened while I was in the states and our one house church which met at the Glimm home now also meets alternately at Margot or Karin's homes. It just got too big - a good problem! This reminds me of Acts 2:43-47 which says, "A deep sense of awe came over them all, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders. And all the believers met together constantly and shared everything they had. They sold their possessions and shared the proceeds with those in need. They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord's Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity-- all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their group those who were being saved." AMEN!

One night in a dream, Abdelrahman saw a vision of a man with a beard talking to him saying, "Son, why do you attack my sheep?"
He replied, "Who are you sir?" The man in the dream said, "Jesus Christ". Abdelrahman answered, "I'm not attacking your sheep, sir, I'm trying to bring your lost sheep back to the straight path." Jesus then said, "You are the one who is lost; I'm the straight path."

He woke up asking himself a number of questions: "Did I really see Jesus? He said that I'm lost. What did he mean? Does that mean that the Christian is right and that I'm on the wrong path? But it was only a dream. Still, Mohammed said in one of his Hadith that if you see a prophet in a dream, you see him truly because Satan could not act like a prophet in a vision. Obey him, and follow what he says. That is what Mohammed said."

Abdelrahman was born in Iraq as a Muslim, but his life changed after that d…
Today Can and Tabea got married at the city hall but will not live together until they are married in church on March 19. The main reason for this early ceremony is so they can get an apartment where Can will live until March. This sweet young couple totally love Jesus and they decided from the beginning of their relationship to honor Him by walking in holiness. May the Lord continue to bless and encourage these dedicated worshipers in every area of their lives!

Heute haben Can und Tabea standesamtlich geheiratet, werden aber bis zur kirchlichen Trauung am 19. März nicht zusammen wohnen. Der Hauptgrund für diese frühe Zeremonie ist, daß sie dann eine Wohnung bekommen können, wo Can bis März wohnen wird. Dieses süße junge Paar liebt Jesus total und sie haben sich schon am Anfang ihrer Beziehung entschlossen, Ihn zu ehren , indem sie in Heiligkeit gehen. Möge der Herr diese geweihten Anbeter weiter segnen und ermutigen, in jedem Bereich ih…
It was a wonderful visit in my homeland of America - much love to my family and friends who I saw - I miss you already! And this afternoon I arrived back in Berlin, very tired as I could not sleep on the plane. So after a good nights sleep, my journey with Jesus will continue here - hallelujah!

Es war ein wunderbarer Besuch in meinem Heimatland Amerika - eine große Portion Liebe an meine Familie und meine Freunde, die ich gesehen habe - ich vermisse euch jetzt schon! Und heute nachmittag bin ich wieder zurück in Berlin angekomen, sehr müde, weil ich im Flugzeug nicht schlafen konnte. So wird nach einem guten Schlaf, meine Reise mit Jesus hier fortgesetzt - halleluja!
The road just opened to the public this week since Hurricane Ivan almost 4 months ago. The destruction along the beautiful white sands and clear gulf water is still quite jolting to say the least!
I had to say good-bye to family and friends in Pensacola yesterday and am now in Atlanta until Tuesday when I will fly back to beautiful Berlin. Filled with mixed emotions - sad to leave and excited to go back - I know Jesus has wonderful things for each of us in 2005 because the BEST IS YET TO COME!

Nach dem Hurrikan Ivan, vor fast 4 Monate, wurde diese Strasse gerade diese Woche wieder für die Öffentlichkeit geöffnet. Die Zerstörung entlang den wunderschönen weißen Stränden und dem klaren Golf-Wasser ist, gelinde gesagt, immer noch erschütternd!

An aerial view shows a rainbow appearing above the shores of northern Sumatra islands, Indonesia, January 5, 2005
Today someone asked "GOD Where were you!!" in response to a news article about the tsunami. Here's what I replied to them:

In Matthew 24, Jesus says, "...wars will break out near and far, but don't panic. Yes, these things must come, but the end won't follow immediately. The nations and kingdoms will proclaim war against each other, and there will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world..." (Matthew 24)

God does not take pleasure in watching the innocent suffer and die.

For those who seriously want answers about the meaning of these events, it is good to ask him because God loves his creation.

However, our rebellion has deluded many to believe lies. The truth is that God loves us so much that he sent Jesus, His Son, to die for our sin. Sin separates us from a loving relationship with God. Jesus said that he is the…
It is not God's will that we be in bondage to our bills. People are missing their destiny in the Kingdom of God because they owe so much money to others. I had a large debt for years and now that I am free of debt, I REFUSE to go there again! Today I discovered a very interesting book and website belonging to Dave Ramsey - check out the comments of a person who read his latest book: "Sometimes we have to fall on our duffs to learn life's lessons. Dave fell on his and instead of wallowing in pity, he did something about it. He turned it around and learned HOW to manage money without incuring debt & in turn prospered in the process. WHAT'S DAVE'S LITTLE SECRET?: THE BORROWER IS SLAVE TO THE LENDER. When you borrow money from banks (especially credit cards) you are working for the banks. Turn that trend around & pay for stuff with cash! Pay off ALL your debt & don't EVER buy stuff you can't pay for now! Keep a budget & stick to…
Indonesian survivors rush to receive supplies from US Navy crewmen, Monday Jan. 3, 2005 at an isolated village south of Banda Aceh in northwest Indonesia. The United States has conducted the largest relief operation since the Vietnam war following last Sunday's earthquake-triggered tsunami catastrophe in Asia. However, some of the news media is again portraying America in a negative light. Here are the facts:
- Did you know that the people of the United States number only 5% of the world's population and yet this one nation, the most generous of all nations, gives 40% of ALL the humanitarian and relief aid given by the almost 200 nations on the globe? And if you include the money given directly by the United Nations for relief, most if which is extorted from the United States, by some estimates America gives 50% of ALL aid worldwide.
- Did you know that the $35 Million figure was the initial reaction of the United States at the time when about 5,000 were reported …

The above photos were taken over 3 months ago right after Hurricane Ivan hit and today these homes still look the same. It is a very beautiful area normally and residents say they like it because it is peaceful and quiet. They talk about watching dolphins in the bayou or the Blue Angel jets over the pines taking off from Sherman Field. But it's hard to see that now. Ivan's storm surge flooded the entire waterfront area which came chest high in some homes. This morning I walked along this street and prayed for the families - it is quite sobering to still see so much devastation. My daughter says she will never stay for a catagory 3+ hurricane again and others that rode out the storm can't even talk about it without getting emotional. What is God saying to us?
