There's more that rises in the morning than the sun. And more that shines in the night than just the moon. It's more than just this fire here that keeps me warm. In a shelter that is larger than this room -Rich Mullins
I think it was Martin Luther King jr. Who said something to the effect of; “America has a schizophrenic personality.”
As time marches on and I grow older. I see more and more every day just how schizophrenic, not only America has become. But also the world.
There is now, hardly a subject out there that is not “powder keg” to someone. And to make it worse, it’s become obvious to many Americans that certain groups are working very hard to keep it that way.
If you’re a person who like to see that everything is getting better and better. Then much of the violence and actions of the world do not make sense to you.
If you are the type of person who see devils and angry monsters around every rock. Then everything dangerous and you feel the need to stockpile and hide everything for the end of the world.Continue reading →
A part of the healing revival of the 1950’s and 1960’s as a dynamic, flamboyant tent evangelist, he became known for his ability to exorcise demonic spirits from the most difficult cases.
By A. A. Allen. – July 4, 1954.
As I stood atop the Empire State Building, I could see the Statue of Liberty, illuminating the gateway to the new world. Here, spread before me like an animated map, is an area sixty or eighty miles in diameter. I was amazed that the Spirit of the Lord should so move me, there atop the Empire State Building. Why should I feel such a surge of His Spirit and power there? Suddenly I heard the voice of the Lord. It was as clear and as distinct as a voice could be. It seemed to come from the very midst of the giant telescope. But when I looked at the telescope, I knew it hadn’t come from there, but directly from heaven. The voice said, “The eyes of the lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him. Herein you have done foolishly. Therefore, from henceforth, you shall have wars.” Immediately when I heard the voice of God, I knew this was a quotation of Scripture. But never before had a thing come to me so forcibly by the power of the Spirit. The ticking of the telescope stopped. The man before me had used up his dime’s worth. As he stepped away I knew that I was next. As I stepped to the telescope and dropped in my dime, immediately the ticking started again. This ticking was an automatic clock which would allow me to use the telescope for a definitely limited time only.Continue reading →
On September 16, 1862 Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan confronted Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia at Sharpsburg, Maryland. At dawn September 17, Hooker’s corps mounted a powerful assault on Lee’s left flank that began the single bloodiest day in American military history. Attacks and counterattacks swept across Miller’s cornfield and fighting swirled around the Dunker Church. Union assaults against the Sunken Road eventually pierced the Confederate center, but the Federal advantage was not followed up. Late in the day, Burnside’s corps finally got into action, crossing the stone bridge over Antietam Creek and rolling up the Confederate right. At a crucial moment, A.P. Hill’s division arrived from Harpers Ferry and counterattacked, driving back Burnside and saving the day. Although outnumbered two-to-one, Lee committed his entire force, while McClellan sent in less than three-quarters of his army, enabling Lee to fight the Federals to a standstill. During the night, both armies consolidated their lines. In spite of crippling casualties, Lee continued to skirmish with McClellan throughout the 18th, while removing his wounded south of the river. McClellan did not renew the assaults. After dark, Lee ordered the battered Army of Northern Virginia to withdraw across the Potomac into the Shenandoah Valley.
George Washington’s Vision, from what I have found has been printed by different sources over the years. Some of them have picked out different parts. This is (from what I have found to date) the most complete version. I have taken the liberty of highlighting the areas that applied to other visions or current day events.
The last time I ever saw Anthony Sherman was on the fourth of July,4 1859, in Independence Square. He was then 99 years old,and becoming very feeble. But though so old, his dimming eyes rekindled as he gazed upon Independence Hall, which he had come to visit once more. ‘Let’s go into the hall,’ he said. ‘I want to tell you of an incident of Washington’s life — one which no one alive knows of except myself; and if you live, you will before long see it verified. Mark the prediction, you will see it verified.Continue reading →
