WHAT IS THE LORD SAYING?
A Call to Listen to God - Are we listening? (Hebrews 12:14-28)
Try to live in peace with everyone, and seek to live a clean and holy life, for those who are not holy will not see the Lord. Look after each other so that none of you will miss out on the special favor of God. Watch out that no bitter root of unbelief rises up among you, for whenever it springs up, many are corrupted by its poison. Make sure that no one is immoral or godless like Esau. He traded his birthright as the oldest son for a single meal. And afterward, when he wanted his father's blessing, he was rejected. It was too late for repentance, even though he wept bitter tears. You have not come to a physical mountain, to a place of flaming fire, darkness, gloom, and whirlwind, as the Israelites did at Mount Sinai when God gave them his laws. For they heard an awesome trumpet blast and a voice with a message so terrible that they begged God to stop speaking. They staggered back under God's…

JESUS IS ALIVE!
Luke the physician wrote: Very early on Sunday morning the women came to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. They found that the stone covering the entrance had been rolled aside. So they went in, but they couldn't find the body of the Lord Jesus. They were puzzled, trying to think what could have happened to it. Suddenly, two men appeared to them, clothed in dazzling robes. The women were terrified and bowed low before them. Then the men asked, "Why are you looking in a tomb for someone who is alive? He isn't here! He has risen from the dead! Don't you remember what he told you back in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be betrayed into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and that he would rise again the third day?" Then they remembered that he had said this. So they rushed back to tell his eleven disciples--and everyone else--what had happened. (Luke 24)

THE LORD IS POURING OUT HIS SPIRIT
In Acts 2 when the Holy Spirit came in power on the 120 disciples, others thought they were drunk! The "new wine" that the Lord freely gives His people who want more of Him brings joy, healing, and freedom. Last night we spent the evening with friends and could barley eat our meal because the River of God was flowing so deep in our midst - it was refreshing and WONDERFUL! Back on that first day of Pentecost, Peter quoted the prophet Joel who said, "In the last days, God said, I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams. In those days I will pour out my Spirit upon all my servants, men and women alike, and they will prophesy. And I will cause wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below - blood and fire and clouds of smoke. The sun will be turned into darkness, and the moon will turn bloodred, before that great and glori…

"Jesus Victorious Over the Devil" - art by Simon Glimm
"IT IS FINISHED!" - last words of Jesus
Not only is today Purim, the Jewish holiday celebrating the victory from death through the Jewish Persian Queen Esther, but this is the day we Christians remember that Jesus offered his life for our sins at Calvary. On Sunday we will then celebrate his resurrection and victory over death. The gift of eternal life from the Father is for anyone who chooses to believe and receive it. In the Torah and the Old Testament, it speaks of the sacrifices of innocent animals to remove the people's sins. Christians believe Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. He willingly laid down his life for you and me because of his great love for us. Everyone who sins is a slave of sin but God loves us so much that He sent His one and only Son that whoever believes in him will be forgiven and not die but live forever - this is the GOOD NEWS! Paul (also called Saul) wrot…

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS (1956)
This classic movie based on the biblical account of Moses leading the children of Israel out of Egypt and then him receiving the ten commandments directly from God, is more than special to me. I was born in Hollywood, California, and several of my family were in the movie business - my cousin is Joan Leslie, an actress who starred in many movies during the 40's and my uncles were producers, editors, and directors. My father's job was not very glamorous as he worked behind the scenes as a "grip" - one who helps build movie sets. He worked for Paramount Studios for 20 years before moving to Universal Studios. As a young child I remember him going to Egypt for several weeks to work on the Cecil B. DeMille epic, "The Ten Commandments". Ours was not a Christian home, but he brought me back a little bible from Saint Catherine monastery that is located at the foot of Mount Sinai in Egypt. My father died before I became a Christian, but e…

THE JEWS ARE STILL GOD'S CHOSEN PEOPLE
Lately, I have been reading some very disturbing news:
1. Adolf Hitler's "Mein Kampf", a bestseller in many sectors of the Muslim world, has become a best seller in Turkey which is traditionally considered a moderate country. Tens of thousands of Turkish-language copies of Hitler's book - the English title of which is "My Struggle" - have been snatched off the shelves ever since they were reprinted in Turkey several months ago. The book outlines Hitler's plans for world domination and his intense hatred of Jews. (link)
2. Two weeks ago, on March 9, here in Berlin a huge swastika was scraped out of snow on a frozen lake near the runway of Berlin's Tegel Airport, making it visible to passengers on incoming planes. Authorities erased the Nazi symbol shortly after its discovery. (link)
3. Monday's school tragedy in the USA of 10 innocent people shot and killed along with others injured, happened by a 16-year-ol…

THE BURNING HEART
"Did not our heart burn within us...?" Luke 24:32
Yesterday, we visited our friend who had been moved to different mental hospital which is more secure. We were sitting alone with her in a large activity room, listening to a women yelling in the hallway who was upset about something, and watching others walk around who were obviously struggling in their minds. As a former mental patient many years ago, I now was disappointed and burdened at first because our friend seemed so heavily medicated and not doing good, so I burst into prayer aloud asking the Lord for freedom for all the patients there. Then a young man suddenly walked in the room with a big smile saying in perfect English, "I believe in God!" and sat down with us. He made me smile when he said he liked President Bush! He said he knew the Bible, so I asked him his favorite verse: "Love your neighbor as yourself." He was a blessing fo…

2/5/08 UPDATE
A LOT has changed in my mind regarding President Bush. I do NOT believe he is a Christian but rather a skull and bones puppet of the elite who are really running things in DC behind the scenes.

I believe the VOTE is a sham and farce as the elite already know who they will put in office by hook or by crook to further their evil agenda.

I believe 9/11 was an inside job with top US leaders and main stream media heads all involved in order to create fear and chaos resulting in changed laws that remove more of our rights as citizens.

I believe we have been brainwashed by the state schools, apostate churches, the main stream news media sold a pack of lies about America which is NOT a Christian nation but rather a Freemason satanic nation killing innocent people daily beginning with 4,000+ babies a day through abortion.

I am ashamed of what we as a nation have done and are continuing to do world wide!

I believe God is in control and He is allowing all this as the scriptures are bein…

Sombrero Galaxy: a bit of Father's creation
"LET THERE BE LIGHT!" - God
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth and He set lights in the heavens to light the earth. One day, the LORD brought Abram outside beneath the night sky and told him, "Look up into the heavens and count the stars if you can. Your descendants will be like that--too many to count!" And it was through this man of faith that our Messiah came. It was by faith that Abraham obeyed when God called him to leave home and go to another land that God would give him as his inheritance. He went without knowing where he was going. And even when he reached the land God promised him, he lived there by faith--for he was like a foreigner, living in a tent. Oswald Chambers says, "Living a life of faith means never knowing where you are being led. But it does mean loving and knowing the One who is leading. It is literally a life of faith, not of understanding and reason—a life of knowing Him…

DEATH VALLEY SPRINGS TO LIFE!
Death Valley, California, is the driest, hotest, and lowest point in the western hemisphere - 282 feet below sea level. It is a desert with little vegetation, however, this winter the rains have caused it to come alive the first time in many years with thousands of colorful wild flowers! There is even a new lake at the basin and many tourists are coming to see this amazing sight. We all know that flowers bring joy to our hearts and this is a message of love to us from God. However, like a desert, we sometimes feel dry and empty. Would you like a fresh touch from the Lord today? God's mercies are new every morning and just like this blooming desert, your heavenly Father wants to bless you today. He desires to fill your cup with His living water. In John 11 right before He raised her brother, Lazarus, from the dead, Jesus said to Martha, "I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die like everyone else, will live …

IS YOUR GLASS HALF FULL OR HALF EMPTY?
Over the years I have learned that when things seem to be going bad during the day and the enemy is trying to steal my joy, something very wonderful is on the horizon! For example, the meeting that I am late for because I took the wrong bus usually turns out to be one of BEST meetings - hahahaha! As Christians, we are encouraged to REJOICE and in everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning us. Yes, my friend, I have decided to look at life through a glass which is half full rather than one which is half empty. How about you?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KERA!
The Boone family are missionary friends from the states who live in Poland and Kera and her mom came by for a quick visit today. We already had planned to take Tabea to dinner for her birthday and was surprised to discover that it was Kera's birthday too! We had a fun time together. I like what David wrote in Psalm 133, "How wonderful it is, how pleasant, when brothers live together in harmony! For harmony is as precious as the fragrant anointing oil that was poured over Aaron's head, that ran down his beard and onto the border of his robe. Harmony is as refreshing as the dew from Mount Hermon that falls on the mountains of Zion. And the LORD has pronounced his blessing, even life forevermore."

"IT WAS THE HAND OF GOD"
When I read that alleged Atlanta murderer Brian Nichols calmly turned himself in yesterday after spending several hours a woman hostage, I thought, "I wonder if she is a Christian". And sure enough, Ashley Smith, 33-year-old widow and single mother of a 5-year old, amazingly was able to talk to Brian about Jesus and read to him from the Christian book, "The Purpose-Driven Life" by Rick Warren. She said of Nichols, "He reached into my heart and took some of my hope." He then let her go and she called the police, followed by him turning himself in. Regarding hope, the Bible says, "Through Christ you have come to trust in God. And because God raised Christ from the dead and gave him great glory, your faith and hope can be placed confidently in God." (1 Peter 1:21)

WE ARE FAMILY!
Yesterday, my daughter called to tell me that not only did both her cats have kittens this week - four each - but her supposedly neutered rabbit had five baby bunnies - WOW! We laughed at the wonder of it all. New life is always exciting, and it makes me think now about the blessing of families. Today, our church family met for breakfast in a cozy home. Afterwards, a few of us hung out all day, enjoying each other's company. Family is important and it is good to know that through Jesus, we are in God's family! "Long ago, even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. His unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. And this gave him great pleasure. So we praise God for the wonderful kindness he has poured out on us because we belong to his dearly loved Son. He is so rich in kindness that he purchased our freedom through the blood o…

"Saying Grace" by American artist, Norman Rockwell (1894-1978)
THANK YOU, LORD!
Being thankful will change you. Are you discouraged, depressed, hurt, or sad? As bad as it is, it could always be worse, so choose to see the glass as half full rather than half empty. Decide now to count your blessings. An attitude of gratitude will lift you above any cloud hanging over your head. Everyone struggles in life - this is normal. However, when we give thanks to God in the storms of life, He helps us. Is your problem too big for God? How big is your God? "Rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS, and again I say REJOICE", Paul wrote from jail. The Lord loves us and He wants what is best for His children, so quit complaining and GIVE THANKS!

THE PROPHECY OF SIMEON
Simeon was a man who lived in Jerusalem long ago. He was a righteous man and very devout. He was filled with the Holy Spirit and he eagerly expected the Messiah to come and rescue Israel. The Holy Spirit had revealed to him that he would not die until he had seen the Lord's Messiah. One day the Spirit led him to the Temple when Mary and Joseph came to present the baby Jesus to the Lord as the law required. He took the child in his arms and praised God, saying, "Lord, now I can die in peace! As you promised me, I have seen the Savior you have given to all people. He is a light to reveal God to the nations and he is the glory of your people Israel!" Joseph and Mary were amazed at what was being said about Jesus. Then Simeon blessed them and he said to Mary, "This child will be rejected by many in Israel, and it will be their undoing. But he will be the greatest joy to many others. Thus, the deepest thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a …

THE JOY OF THE LORD IS MY STRENGTH!
When I first arrived in Berlin 3 years ago, I asked the LORD, "What am I doing here?" He said, "Delight yourself in Me and I will do the rest." So I did and He has - HALLELUJAH! In John 4:14 Jesus says, "Whoever takes a drink of the water that I will give him shall never, no never, be thirsty any more. But the water that I will give him shall become a spring of water welling up, flowing, bubbling continually within him unto eternal life." YEAH! May we each jump into the water of His love and drink deep - the Holy Spirit so desires to be released through the people of God and my prayer for you is the same as Paul wrote in Romans 15:13: "May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing through the experience of your faith that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing, bubbling over, with hope." AMEN and MORE LORD!

A PLACE OF REST
In our busy lives, we all need times of refreshing. David was first a shepherd, then a warrior, and finally a king, but always he was a man after God's own heart. In Psalm 27, David wrote, "One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek, inquire for, and insistently require: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord, in His presence, all the days of my life, to behold and gaze upon the beauty, the sweet attractiveness and the delightful loveliness, of the Lord and to meditate, consider, and inquire in His temple." Being in the presence of the Lord, beholding His beauty, and nuturing a relationship with Him is a place of rest.

I AM A CHILD OF GOD
Most everyone who has struggled with depression has considered or attempted suicide. I personally have battled this demon in the past. I shutter when I think of the young man I saw jump to his death in front of an underground train here in Berlin last year. The battle in our mind can so torment us that we will do desperate things that hurt others and ourselves. God loves us but Satan hates us and our only hope for true freedom is by turning to Jesus Christ, embracing the cross, and walking in truth. "IT IS FINISHED!" Jesus proclaimed just before He died at Calvary. Yes, He paid the price for our freedom from sin and death, giving us the gift of eternal life along with an abundant life now. But sometimes, we loose hope and yesterday, we began meeting with a young women who attempted to take her life a few months ago but amazingly, she lived and told us she is thankful she did not die. Before we left, we told her that her heavenly Father loved her very much.…

ZOLA LEVITT
Over the past several weeks, I have been getting a wonderful education about Israel by watching past tv shows on the internet which are hosted by Zola Levitt. Here, I am learning things one never reads or see in the typical news media. Zola is a Jewish Christian thoroughly educated in the synagogues and brought to the Messiah in 1971. A widely published author with more than 50 books in several languages, he is also a composer of 200 spiritual songs, a teacher, a lecturer, and over the past 30 years, Zola has hosted more than 80 trips to Israel, Egypt, the areas of the seven churches, the Mediterranean islands, various European capitals, and elsewhere!

Former Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch was baptized yesterday in the Israel's Jordan River
BRIAN WELCH PUTS HIS TRUST IN JESUS CHRIST
This is the kind of news I enjoy reading! Just weeks after quitting his band, drug habits and rock-and-roll lifestyle, Brian Welch, a founding member of the multi-platinum band, "Korn", visited Israel where he and about 20 others from his church were baptised in the same river that John baptised Jesus long ago. "You know when you get angry and it builds up? I felt like hurting someone before, now I feel like hugging people," Brian said. He has "Jesus" tattooed across his knuckles, "Matthew 11:28," tattooed prominently across his neck, and is already attracting a new group of young people to the message of Christianity. HALLELUJAH!

Daniel Thompson, fellow Bible school graduate and minister of the Gospel, is back in Berlin for several weeks and it is so good to see him again! He was here last year for 3 months (click here to read more) and is a passionate intersessor who loves Jesus - another fun-loving crazy Christian like the rest of us who celebrate at the Holy Place! Tonight he shared that the Lord gave him a vision of Berlin as the Bride but she was dressed not in white but rather in the brown clothes of a slave, one who was ashamed.

WHERE'S THE BABY?
Today, I woke to an upsetting dream. There were 4 people - 3 women and 1 man - dressed in normal clothes sitting on the beach, enjoying themselves, talking and laughing while and in a box in front of them was a very small baby screaming. I was shocked when they threw trash in with the baby, laughing & not caring about the child. The next thing I knew, the baby was gone but the box was still there. I asked them, "Where's the baby??" I didn't see what happened, but I knew they had killed the baby and threw him into the ocean. However, they made excuses, didn't think it was a big deal (or big problem), and just ignored me. So I began to rebuke them and tell them that Jesus sees everything and that one day we will all stand before Him in judgment. They listened but seemed indifferent as I walked away, totally upset. Later, I met the man again alone and befriended him, hoping to share the Gospel with him. Then I woke up. As I thought about the…

THE CROSS IS THE BRIDGE TO LIFE
Salvation that comes from trusting Christ--which is the message we preach--is already within easy reach. In fact, the Scriptures say, "The message is close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart." For if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. As the Scriptures tell us, "Anyone who believes in him will not be put to shame or disappointed." Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect. They all have the same Lord, who generously gives his riches to all who ask for them. For "Anyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless …

HONOR KILLINGS
The horror of this tragic crime again made the headlines here in Berlin last week. At the juvenile prison in the Berlin suburb Plötzensee, six of the current 529 inmates are serving time of six years and more for manslaughter in so-called "honor crimes." All come from the Muslim world. Aged between 18 and 22, one of them, an Afghan national, was 16 when he helped relatives kill a widowed aunt who had refused to marry her brother-in-law. Prison director Marius Fiedler said most of the murders are often carefully plotted in the family with the support of all, including women. "Usually the patriarch selects the youngest son to carry out the crime because he knows that judges in Germany don't usually give the maximum sentence of 10 years to a minor for manslaughter," he said. In Berlin, there is a safehouse for young Turkish women to hide to escape family violence, but let's face it folks, we need a JESUS REVOLUTION!

PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM
Day 6 of my liquid fast and my main burden besides salvation for the lost is for Israel and for the Jews. Why must Israel give away any land to people who want to destroy her? Why can't the Palestinians live in Jordan? Why is the US pushing for the "roadmap" which has no hope of success? I just don't get it. Could this all be an end-times setup by God? Time will tell. In the meantime, we are to pray for the peace of Jerusalem like David wrote in Psalm 122: I was glad when they said to me, "Let us go to the house of the LORD." And now we are standing here inside your gates, O Jerusalem. Jerusalem is a well-built city, knit together as a single unit. All the people of Israel--the LORD's people-- make their pilgrimage here. They come to give thanks to the name of the LORD as the law requires. Here stand the thrones where judgment is given, the thrones of the dynasty of David. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. May all who love …
