Fox's Book of Martyrs

Fox's Book of Martyrs is a History of the Lives, Sufferings, and Deaths of the Early Christian and Protestant Martyrs. Here's one editorial about the book: A great Christian classic, this book describes the heroism and martyrdom of countless believers. It has been an unparalleled volume since its 16th-century origin.
From the Back Cover
This is a book which will never die--one of the greatest Christian classics. As interesting as fiction, it is written with both passion and tenderness, telling the dramatic story of some of the most thrilling periods in Christian history. Presented here in the most complete form, it brings to life the days when "a noble army, men and boys, the matron and the maid," "climbed the steep ascent of heaven, amid peril, toil, and pain."
Can't wait to receive my copy of the book which I ordered on line.

48th anniversary of Beirut 1st Baptist Bible Church

This past Sunday was the 48th anniversary of the 1st Baptist Bible Church in Beirut, Lebanon. Half a century, with all its global geo-political clashes, economic transformations, societal upheavels,,, but the gates of hell shall not prevail against the body of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. Many came and shared our joy the whole day long. Many also heard the Word of God. Some are coming back.

Canadian Thanksgiving and The Feast of the Tabernacles

Today, Canadians will celebrate Thanksgiving. This is a time for family reunions around the traditional turkey dinner, cranberry sauce and sweet potatoes. For me, this is the most beloved time of the year, and tonight, some of my christian family members will come over. In addition to feasting we will share some of the good things that the Lord has wrought in our lives during the past year. We will give thanks, and sing and offer praises to our bountiful Saviour. A key reason why I love this feast is that it coincides with the Biblical Feast of the Tabernacles. A Bible student will understand that God gave his people only three feasts to celebrate. Those are (1) the passover (on 14 April); (2) the feast of the firstfruits which comes fifty days after the sacrifice of the lamb (June); (3) the feast of the tabernacles in October. These my friends are the official holidays given to us by our Father. I will venture and say that all others are man-made holidays. Prophetically speaking, the dates of these feasts are very significant. Passover coincided with the date when Jesus was offered as a Lamb and died on the cross for our sins. The feast of the Firstfruits, more commonly known as Pentecost dated fifty days from the offering of the Lamb and coincided with the time when the Holy Spirit was poured out from heaven on sons and daughters of men. (Jesus himself being the first to be resurrected from the dead and after forty days ascended into heaven). As for the fulfilment of that third feast prophetically, I wonder. Could it be that it will coincide with the rapture, when the Bride of Christ will leave her earthly home and be caught up in the air as we go out to tabernacle with the Saviour. Just a thought that intrigues me, and makes the date of the Thanksgiving Holiday so for special to me.

A comfort pill from God's Word

Think for a minute. Whoever said that the word of God does not have medicianl effect. Take a look at this verse for instance "....hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love" (colossians 2:2). Not only is there comfort on a human level when hearts are knit together in love, but there is also comfort for the weary soul when a person's heart is knit together in love with God the Father, and his son Jesus Christ.

Back by popular demand

Don't you just love that publicity cliche "Back by popular demand". I am therefore posting this popular demand for Rev.2:17 to come back and post on this blog. It is not fair that we should be kept anxiously waiting for those long promised updates.
