Christchurch Earthquake: A Montage Of Footage Set To The National Anthem

At last a mention of God in the national anthem!!! Horray!!!

Christchurch Earthquake: Inside the CBD cordon

I thank God that He brought me to a country where the people at least mention "praying" prayer, Pray, God when it comes to a national disaster...where God is at least given lip service by the masses...It is sad the quake but what is even sadder is the condition of souls in New Zealand!

Who God Chooses

Christchurch Earthquake: Footage Of The Aftermath

The True State of the "Church" In Christchurch, New Zealand!

-by Andrew Strom.

It was with terrible sadness that I learned yesterday of another huge
earthquake hitting the New Zealand city of Christchurch. It has only
been 2 months since we left that city and we have many dear
friends there. The first earthquake last year had no fatalities but
this one looks to have many dead and injured.

I want to share a few things about our time in Christchurch that left
me quite disturbed and concerned when we left. But I want to be
sensitive because of the terrible sadness associated with this new quake.

As some of you know, one of the main things that I hoped to do
in Christchurch after the first quake was to organize a large open
worship event in the city - to praise and glorify God that nobody
had been killed even in a huge 7.1 earthquake. I found that no such
event was being planned, but there were thousands of evangelical
Christians in Christchurch, and I felt very strongly that it was
important for us to publicly glorify God for the miracle of surviving
such a disaster with no-one killed. The place was traumatized and
it was obvious that a sensitive Worship event would do much good -
and even many non-Christians would likely attend. But sadly it was
not to be. And this is the disturbing part.

I have organized large events before, so the Christian Radio network
knows me - and quickly agreed to promote the event for free. The
PA sound people also agreed to supply excellent sound for a very
low cost. And the Christchurch City Council couldn't have been
more helpful. Everything was looking good. But then we ran up
against the Christian leaders.

One of the main "networking" Pentecostal leaders in the city told
me that we could count him OUT of any support for the event. Then
I spoke personally with the Dean of Christchurch Cathedral who
told me that we could NOT use the main Square in Christchurch
for a worship event for the whole Body. (Today this man's Cathedral
lies in ruins. It had survived the first quake, but it did not survive
this new one).

I called a number of prominent pastors and worship bands around
Christchurch. I said we had the support of Radio, the Council, the
sound and everything. No response. Worship bands not interested.
Pastors not returning calls. (You might think they were busy after
the quake - but remember no-one died and Christchurch was up
and running pretty fully after only a couple of weeks). I simply
couldn't understand it. The evangelicals of Christchurch had made
no public acknowledgement of God at all - no public worship for
this miraculous escape - no public glorifying of Jesus. Even the
secular News and the politicians were calling it a "miracle". People
were traumatized everywhere. Wasn't it a "no-brainer" that we
should be doing such a thing? Doesn't God deserve public praise
after protecting so many people from harm?

In fact, it was such a no-brainer that the secular people themselves
decided to do something. A number of the top bands and musicians
from New Zealand came down and gave a free concert in the park
for the traumatized city. It was heavily advertised on Radio - and
20,000 people showed up. Of course it was a secular event - not
Christian. The Pentecostals, Charismatics and Evangelicals of
Christchurch had made virtually no public sound at all.

I felt strongly that I could not push things any further without some
basic support from the church. We managed to hold a couple of
outdoor concerts for the homeless, and got involved with distributing
"care packages" and things, but I was so disappointed. In fact I was
more than disappointed - I was alarmed and deeply disturbed. I even
told some friends that it was "dangerous" to offer no public praise
after God has just so obviously saved your city. I felt so strongly
about it - and deeply saddened for the state of the Body of Christ.
But I could do nothing more.

On December 17, 2010, my family departed from Christchurch. On
December 28th we boarded a plane for Australia. I believe it may
be some time before we ever return.

My heart truly goes out to the people of Christchurch - and to all
the world so poorly served by the church of our day. This was truly
one of the worst "lost opportunities" that I have ever witnessed in
all my years with the church. And Christchurch was truly one of
the most beautiful cites I have ever seen. The people are so dear
to us. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, my friends. May
God bless and protect you all in these dark times.

Yours with great sadness,

Extreemists plan "Global Islamic conquest"-No kidding!

Soon more than the pope will be kissing the Koran!

I noticed this headline on The Drudge Report this morning, and I thought, "No kidding? Like this is news!"
Of course our liberal politicians will take it in their stride, whilst they have their heads planted firmly in the sod!

Guess Who?

This is the very reason that I, for the most part, avoid books written by men that are filled with their own opinions and doctrines. There are millions who think the sun shines out of this man.

Tribulations and Distresses will come!

I tell you saints that tribulations and distresses will come, we should expect them. Our Father has a purpose in allowing them, He uses them to perfect us in our faith in Him. He allows methods that we do not expect, nor relish, but they are for our certain good. I know this because I have been tried, and am still being tried, but I know in Whom I place my trust, and I know that He is able to deliver.

For we know that it is written.....
Romans 8:35-38
35. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36. As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature
, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

These are the words that we need to meditate upon saints of God, and secure in our hearts, that we may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil, the enemy of our souls, who would destroy us if he could. So when it seems that all hell is assailing you saint of God, ask Him "What is it that I need to learn here Lord?" because saints I tell you, we imperfect children of God continuously need to learn and grow and shed our carnal nature always.

It is not a sin to feel weak and helpless, for in and through our weakness, when we are submitted to Him, then His strength is made perfect, and visible and He is glorified. The Lord wants us to be 100% percent dependant upon His strength. God wants to be needed of His children.

In and of ourselves we can do nothing. If you believe yourself to be already made perfect, and that you have no need for further growth, then you need to go back to square one for you are full of pride.

1 Corinthians 10:12
Therefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

Has Great Britain become an islamic state?

This is the comment on the video that I want you to let sink in to your senses...if you have eyes to see and ears to hear.

"What alone can stop this? western government will....they are laying out the red carpet for Islamic immigration.....and killing off the natives via abortion and birthcontrol. A CATHOLIC STATE alone will succeed........true mother of the West. Get ready for a CATHOLIC STATE.......or find yourself in the Caliphate."
Think on this saints, think on it!

Saints this is one way that I believe the Roman Catholic Religion will rule in the end!
