This morning I returned from California and maybe one day I will live there again, but right now, the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina is very troubling - so much suffering! We certainly need to keep the victims and their families in our prayers and help if we can. But did you know that New Orleans was going to celebrate "Southern Decadence" this weekend? Yes, 100,000 homosexuals were gathering to commit unspeakable acts in public and the city officials didn't stop it because of the $100,000,000 profit the event usually brings in. Plus most of the gambling casinos were destroyed nearby. Is there a connection between all this wickedness and the devastaion of the hurricane? Some think there is. And what about all the Israelis who were recently evacuated to refugee centers - thanks to America. I believe God is not pleased with us at all and we need to repent. Luke 21 talks about "the sea and the waves roaring", "men's hearts failing them for fear", and "when these things begin to happen, look up and know your redemption draws nigh." READY OR NOT, MY FRIENDS, JESUS IS COMING AGAIN!
Heute morgen kehrte ich aus Kalifornien zurück und vielleicht werde ich eines Tages wieder dort leben, aber jetzt ist die Tragödie des Hurrikan Katrina sehr beunruhigend - so viel Leid! Wir müssen in unseren Gebeten an die Opfer und ihre Familien denken und helfen, wenn wir können. Aber wußtest du, daß New Orleans dieses Wochenende "Südliche Dekadenz" feiern wollte? Ja, 100.000 Homosexuelle trafen sich, um unaussprechliche Handlungen öffentlich zu begehen und die Verantwortlichen der Stadt stoppten das nicht, wegen der 81.000.000 Euro Profit, die das Ereignis normalerweise einbringt. Dazu wurden die meisten der Glücksspiel-Kasinos die in der Nähe waren, zerstört. Gibt es da eine Verbindung zwischen all dieser Schlechtigkeit und der Verwüstung des Hurrikans? Einige glauben, daß es die gibt. Und was ist mit all den Israelis, die vor kurzem in Flüchtlingslager evakuiert wurden - dankeschön Amerika. Ich glaube, Gott hat überhaupt kein Wohlgefallen an uns und wir müssen Busse tun. Lukas 21 redet von "brausendem und wogendem Meer ", "Menschen verschmachten vor Furcht", und "wenn aber diese Dinge anfangen zu geschehen, so blickt auf und hebt eure Häupter empor, weil eure Erlösung naht." BEREIT ODER NICHT, MEINE FREUNDE, JESUS KOMMT WIEDER!
My friend, Rogena, works at See's Candies so she brings home lots of goodies to share. I grew up enjoying this delicious chocolate which was founded in California in 1921. But as wonderful as it is, the Word of God is sweeter! Psalm 19 says: "The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb."
Meine Freundin, Rogena, arbeitet beim See Süßwarenladen, so bringt sie viele Pralinen zum Teilen mit nach Hause. Ich bin aufgewachsen und habe diese vorzüglichen Pralinen genossen, die 1921 in Kalifornien begründet wurde. Aber so wunderbar sie ist, das Wort Gottes ist süßer! Psalm 19 sagt: "Das Gesetz des HERRN ist vollkommen und erquickt die Seele; das Zeugnis des HERRN ist zuverlässig und macht den Einfältigen weise. Die Vorschriften des HERRN sind richtig und erfreuen das Herz; das Gebot des HERRN ist lauter und macht die Augen hell. Die Furcht des HERRN ist rein und besteht in Ewigkeit. Die Rechtsbestimmungen des HERRN sind Wahrheit , sie sind gerecht allesamt; sie, die köstlicher sind als Gold, ja viel gediegenes Gold, und süßer als Honig und Honigseim."
THE MASONIC SEAL OF AMERICA
This is the Great Seal of the United States of America. It was designed by the Freemasons and contains a mass of symbolism that the profane (non masons) are not to understand. The religion of Freemasonry and some of it's mysteries have descended from ancient Egypt and ancient Babylon. The Pyramid has of old been a fascination of Freemasons and is a pagan temple of Satan worship. The Latin words on the seal, 'Annuit Coeptis Novus Ordo Seclorum' means 'Announcing the birth of the New World Order'. The date in roman numerals is 1776, the year the modern Illuminati was formed and also the year of American independence. The Latin 'E Pluribus Unum' means 'One out of many' which is the foundation of the New World Order's plan to unify the world's governments, religions and money systems into one so the world can be controlled. Read more here. Tonight, we showed the latest of Alex Jones' videos (Martial Law: 9/11 Rise of the Police State ) to a man who doesn't know Jesus yet, but knows a lot about the new world order, so this is the door the Lord is using to befriend him and share the hope we have in Christ. "IF THE SON THEREFORE SHALL MAKE YOU FREE, YE SHALL BE FREE INDEED." John 8:36
DAS FREIMAURER-SIEGEL VON AMERIKA
Dies ist das Große Siegel der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika. Es wurde von den Freimaurern gestaltet und beinhaltet eine Masse an Symbolismen, die die Weltlichen (nicht Freimaurer) nicht verstehen können. Die Religion der Freimaurer und ein paar ihrer Geheimnisse stammen aus dem alten Ägypten und Babylon. Die Pyramide ist seit jeher eine Faszination der Freimaurer gewesen und ist ein heidnischer Tempel der Satansanbetung. Die Lateinischen Worte auf dem Siegel: 'Annuit Coeptis Novus Ordo Seclorum' bedeuten 'Die Geburt der Neuen Weltordnung verkündigend'. Das Datum in römischen Zahlen ist 1776, das Jahr, in dem sich die modernen Illuminati bildeten und auch das Jahr der amerikanischen Unabhängigkeit. Das lateinische 'E Pluribus Unum' bedeutet 'Einer aus Vielen', und das ist die Basis des Plans der Neuen Weltordnung, die Regierungen, Religionen und Geldsysteme der Welt einszumachen, so daß die Welt kontrolliert werden kann. Lies hier mehr (auf englisch). Heute abend zeigten wir das neueste von Alex Jones' Videos (Kriegerisches Gesetz: 11.9. Das Aufstehen des Polizeistaates ) einem Mann, der Jesus noch nicht kennt, aber viel über die neue Weltordnung weiß, so ist dies die Tür, die der Herr benutzt, sich mit ihm anzufreunden und die Hoffnung mitzuteilen, die wir in Christus haben. "WENN NUN DER SOHN EUCH FREI MACHEN WIRD, SO WERDET IHR WIRKLICH FREI SEIN." Johannes 8,36
WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE PATRIOT ACT?
"First they came for the Communists and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me, but by that time, no one was left to speak up. "
--Pastor Martin Niemoeller, Nazi Germany
Today I read an excellent article about the Patriot Act by Pastor Chuck Baldwin from Pensacola - read it here. The Patriot Act is not helping America but rather taking away our freedoms in exchange for a false sense of security much like what Hitler did in Nazi Germany. We need to wake up, pray, and then obey God in these last days!
Patriotengesetz:es ist kein Gesetzt, und es ist nicht patriotisch.
WAS IST AM PATRIOTENGESETZ FALSCH?
"Zuerst kamen sie wegen der Kommunisten, und ich sprach nicht, weil ich kein Kommunist war.
Dann kamen sie wegen der Juden, und ich sprach nicht, weil ich kein Jude war.
Dann kamen sie wegen der Gewerkschafter, und ich sagte nicht, weil ich kein Gewerkschafter war.
Dann kamen sie wegen der Katholiken, und ich sagte nichts, weil ich ein Protestant war.
Dann kamen sie wegen mir, aber zu der Zeit war keiner mehr da, um etwas zu sagen."
--Pastor Martin Niemoeller, Nazi Deutschland
Heute las ich einen ausgezeichneten Artikel über das Patriotengesetz von Pastor Chuck Baldwin aus Pensacola - lies ihn hier (auf englisch). Das Patriotengesetz hilft Amerika nicht, sondern nimmt unsere Freiheiten im Austausch gegen ein falsches Gefühl der Sicherheit weg, sehr ähnlich dem, was Hitler im Nazideutschland getan hat. Wir müssen aufwachen, beten, und dann Gott gehorchen in diesen letzten Tagen!
FUN IN SONOMA
Visiting with old friends and meeting new ones has made this a fun trip for me this past week. The weather is perfect in this northern California city. Yesterday, Kurt and I walked around the Sonoma plaza for a couple of hours sharing Jesus with folks and a few days ago, Leda and I visited a friend at a convelescent hospital where another woman prayed to accept Jesus into her heart!
SPAß IN SONOMA
Alte Freunde zu besuchen und neue zu treffen, hat meine Reise für mich in dieser vergangenen Woche zu einem freudigen Ausflug gemacht. In dieser Nord-kalifornischen Stadt ist das Wetter perfekt. Gestern sind Kurt und ich ein paar Stunden lang um den Sonoma Plaza gelaufen und haben Leuten von Jesus erzählt, und vor ein paar Tagen haben Leda und ich eine Freundin in einem Reha-Krankenhaus besucht, wo eine andere Frau gebetet und Jesus in ihr Herz eingeladen hat!
CALIFORNIA, HERE I COME
Tomorrow I fly to my home state for a couple of weeks to visit friends in northern California. Born and raised in southern California, I later moved to Sonoma which is about 1 hr north of San Francisco and this is where I am going. May the Lord provide open doors and many divine appointments!
Weingarten in Sonoma
KALIFORNIEN, HIER KOMME ICH
Morgen fliege ich für ein paar Wochen in meinen Heimatstaat, um Freunde in Nordkalifornien zu besuchen. In Südkalifornien geboren und aufgewachsen, zog ich später nach Sonoma, das liegt etwa eine Stunde nördlich von San Fransisco, und dort gehe ich hin. Möge der Herr für offene Türen und göttliche Begegnungen sorgen!

I think it takes more faith to believe in evolution than in creationism after searching the facts! Right here in Pensacola, we have Dinosaur Adventure Land which started as a dream of Dr. Kent Hovind's. Tired of the constant propaganda being spread about evolution through nearly all public state-funded science centers and museums, as though it is a fact, Dr. Hovind decided that it was time to start a Creation Museum, Science Center, and Theme Park that glorified God. “Evolutionism is a religious worldview not supported by science, Scripture, popular opinion, or common sense. The exclusive teaching of this dangerous, mind-altering philosophy in tax-supported schools, parks, museums, etc. is a clear violation of the First Amendment.” - Dr. Kent Hovind
Creation Science Evangelism was started in 1989 by Dr. Kent Hovind. Kent Hovind is one of the most requested speakers on the Creation and Evolution topic in churches and Universities all over the world. Dr. Hovind served as an educator for many years teaching Biology, Anatomy, Physical Science, Mathematics, Earth Science, and many other sciences. Dr. Hovind has debated the Creation and Evolution controversy over 90 times all over the world, in many large Universities, and on thousands of radio talk shows. If you would like to schedule Dr. Hovind to speak at your event, please visit our scheduling page.

"And Jesus saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm." Matthew 8:26
The Theology of Resting in God by Oswald Chambers
"When we are afraid, the least we can do is pray to God. But our Lord has a right to expect that those who name His name have an underlying confidence in Him. God expects His children to be so confident in Him that in any crisis they are the ones who are reliable. Yet our trust is only in God up to a certain point, then we turn back to the elementary panic-stricken prayers of those people who do not even know God. We come to our wits' end, showing that we don't have even the slightest amount of confidence in Him or in His sovereign control of the world. To us He seems to be asleep, and we can see nothing but giant, breaking waves on the sea ahead of us.
'. . . O you of little faith!' What a stinging pain must have shot through the disciples as they surely thought to themselves, 'We missed the mark again!' And what a sharp pain will go through us when we suddenly realize that we could have produced complete and utter joy in the heart of Jesus by remaining absolutely confident in Him, in spite of what we were facing.
There are times when there is no storm or crisis in our lives, and we do all that is humanly possible. But it is when a crisis arises that we instantly reveal upon whom we rely. If we have been learning to worship God and to place our trust in Him, the crisis will reveal that we can go to the point of breaking, yet without breaking our confidence in Him. We have been talking quite a lot about sanctification, but what will be the result in our lives? It will be expressed in our lives as a peaceful resting in God, which means a total oneness with Him. And this oneness will make us not only blameless in His sight, but also a profound joy to Him."
"I simply believe that we have callings and purposes in this life. I walk through this life for a purpose. I wake up every day for a purpose. And every day I say, 'Here I am. Send me.' "
I ADMIRE BUNNY GREENHOUSE WHO IS AN ARMY WHISTLEBLOWER
With 3 master degrees, 60 year-old Bunnatine "Bunny" Greenhouse works for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. She is responsible for awarding billions upon billions in taxpayers' money to private companies hired to resurrect war-torn Iraq and to feed, clothe, shelter and do the laundry of American troops stationed there. Bunny believes in doing the right thing and because of this, she is on the verge of loosing her job. Why? Because Bunny asks questions like:
Why is Halliburton — a giant Texas firm that holds more than 50 percent of all rebuilding efforts in Iraq — getting billions in contracts without competitive bidding?
Do the durations of those contracts make sense?
Have there been violations of federal laws regulating how the government can spend its money?
Her husband, a retired Army officer, watches what is happening to her and tries to bite his lip. "Bunny has a lot of faith. She really believes that someone will stand up and say, 'This is wrong.' But I don't think a person exists like that in the Department of Defense." MAY THE LIES BE EXPOSED AND THE TRUTH REVEALED I PRAY IN JESUS NAME!

"I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil." - Jesus' prayer to the Father (John 17)

The Cross in Prayer - In that day you will ask in My name . . . John 16:26
We too often think of the Cross of Christ as something we have to get through, yet we get through for the purpose of getting into it. The Cross represents only one thing for us - complete, entire, absolute identification with the Lord Jesus Christ - and there is nothing in which this identification is more real to us than in prayer. "Your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him" (Matthew 6:8
"...every good tree bringeth forth good fruit..."
BEWARE OF FALSE PROPHETS - Jesus in Matthew 7
"Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."
Clint Curtis testified last year of Florida vote rigging (video)
WHY ARE WE NOT HEARING THIS NEWS ON FOX OR CNN?
12/6/04: (Brad Blog) According to a notarized affidavit signed by Clint Curtis, while he was employed by the NASA Kennedy Space Center contractor, Yang Enterprises, Inc., during 2000, Feeney solicited him to write a program to "control the vote." At the time, Curtis was of the opinion that the program was to be used for preventing fraud in the in the 2002 election in Palm Beach County, Florida. His mind was changed, however, when the true intentions of Feeney became clear: the computer program was going to be used to suppress the Democratic vote in counties with large Democratic registrations.

"For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls." 1 Peter 2:25
WHO ARE YOU FOLLOWING?
Did you read the bizarre news article last month about the 450 sheep that jumped to their death in Turkey? First one sheep jumped followed by 1,500 more as stunned Turkish shepherds, who had left the herd to graze while they had breakfast, watched them leap off the same cliff! May we follow only the Good Shepherd rather than a foolish sheep!
"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. hou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever."
"For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: but the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you." 1 Peter 1:24,25
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth." (John 1:1-14) All praises and thanks to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
Book: "The Six-Pointed Star" by Dr. O.J. Graham
YOU WILL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE. Jesus in John 8:32
"The Six-Pointed Star" documents the origin and historical usage of this symbol: "From Egypt to Solomon, to Arab magic, and witchcraft, to Druid uses, to freemasonry, to Mayer Amschel Bauer, who in the 17th century changes his name to depict the red six-pointed star which hung on his door in Germany, and thus began the family of "Rothschild" (meaning red shield). The Rothschild family incorporated this symbol in their Court of Arms. The research traced the six-pointed star through the Cabala, to astrology, to Hitler and his putting a yellow six-pointed star on Jews during the holocaust, to the Zionist symbol, and finally to the flag of the State of Israel and beyond."

1 CORINTHIANS 13
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
