a prophecy still threatens the emipre.

The Bloody Roman Whore (BRW) came out with a movie on the nativity, timed with Christmas (read that Christ MASS), that pagan holiday which born-again believers cannot let go because it has the word "Christ" in it.
The Cardinal (dressed as a BLOODY BIRD, birds representing evil spirits in the Bible) who presented the movie to a crowd of politico-religious pomp never once called Jesus "Lord". He would say "Jesus Christ" but not "Lord".

Now watch thousands of believers swallow that movie down hook, line and sinker. I can already write up their excuses. Satan must be glad that today's believers are so easy to dupe, even as the BRW spreads her skirts wider and wider to regain lost ground in the reformation and usher in the reign of antichrist. Antichrist, incidently, literally means "INSTEAD OF CHRIST".

The trailer to the movie has a spoken line which says "a prophecy that would threaten an empire". I'm sure the higher powers of the BRW enjoy the irony. They still ARE the Roman Empire. Do the words "Holy Roman Empire" mean anything to you?
There's another prophecy. The Lord Jesus Christ is coming back to destroy that same empire which crucified Him.
Amen Lord. Marana atha.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:12)

Never did the above verse come to life in a stronger manner than this past Sunday when ten of us hit downtown Montreal for streeet preaching. The Pastor had just preached about Jonah and Ninevah's repentence as opposed to Sodom and Gomorrah's defiance. Five of us rode a military looking type of car, the latest Sahara Jeep and it felt like soldiers going to war. Little did we know that evil powers were lying in wait for us.

Every time we go street-preaching, we choose a verse for the day. This time it was

Amos 5:10 They hate him that rebuketh in the gate, and they abhor him that speaketh uprightly.

Soon after our men began street preaching, some wicked one, who playing the part of Judas, tried to dissuade our men from preaching by presenting himself as a friend warning them that the police would be coming in 30 minutes. He eventually was found out and like a schyzophrenic threw a tract in a preacher's face and enigmatically said "get the [expletive] off OUR streets. God won't be there to save you tonight"; called the police who came flying by, grabbed the arm of our preacher, threw the Bible down, pushed the preacher face down on the street (almost smashing his head) hand-cuffed him and took him to the police station. The by-standers who saw it and who had been indifferent to our preaching suddenly took interest. We all got fired up when the officer replied to my insistent request on what charges he was doing this violent act that we should let the people shop in peace. One of our men climbed up on the pile of barriers which they had brought down in pushing our preacher and gave an inspired sermon. Tracts were now flying as more people wanted to see what was all this about. Two people got saved in the process. One man saw how the cops attacked the preacher from the second floor of an overlooking restaurant. He came down and asked us what has caused this. When he learned it was Bible, he was indignant. He was witnessed to on the spot and one the men lead him to the Lord in prayer. We soon followed our fellow soldier to the police station, but first we all knelt down right there in the very spot where he got arrested and prayed and asked the God of heaven to release him to his family and church. We also asked for mercy over the city. Then some of us walked and the others followed by car to the police station. Two hours later our man emerged from behind bars with a ticket which we will definitely contest.

Pls. pray for us that our Lord would give us victory as a result of this to preach the gospel without further harrassment.

We live in perilous times indeed.

Home Renovations

John 13:7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.

The verse above has been a source of comfort for me on many occasion when I did not understand what was going on. You may recollect that my condo has been on the market since 9 May but has not sold so far. I would not buy until I sold, however, as time went by I found myself buying a house at a good price only because it needed renovations and had an unfinished basement. So what? The brothers in the church volunteered to help rebuild so on with it. I bought and last Wednesday the work began. As you all know, hissab el souk is not like hissab el baidar (an arabic expressesion to denote that you calculate one thing and end up with another). One job leads to another, and now I see that the house will not be habitable as soon as I hoped for. There is a lot of work to be done. We demolished a wall in the kitcken in order to make it bigger. Building a bathroom in the basement has not begun yet since the plumber (the third one so far) keeps postponing. Renovating the powder room, we now discover there had been a leak which the building inspector had not noticed and was not declared by the previous owner, etc.

Yesterday, however, a propsective buyer came to see my condo. Of all the people who came, this lady fell in love with the apartment. and she might want it for 1 January 2007, a date which I would have refused a month or so ago. Looking back I can now understand why the Lord had delayed the sale. I would have been out on the street if I had accepted a selling date close to 15 November. What the Lord had in mind for me was a beautiful town house with a garden, garage, and a fire place. Three bedrooms and three bathrooms, etc. All of which is more than I could hope for. The timing would be perfect if the sale goes through with this last buyer.

As I said, I continue to trust the Lord that he does everything beautiful in his own good time and for his pleasure.

I love you Lord Jesus.

New House

By the Lord's goodness and gracious blessings I took possession of my new dwelling place, yesterday, 1 November 2006. It is a small town house but has a little bit of everything. Three bedrooms upstairs, living room (with fireplace), dining room and kitchen plus powder/laundry room on first level and a basement. The house has a single garage with a small graden in the back. All in all it is a lot more than I had hoped for and for an excellent price.

The basement is not finished, however, and for you folks who live in California, you may not appreciate the value of basements. I'll give you some of the multiple uses and benefits of having a basement. 1) you can put your son, his books, his research material, reference documents, commentaries, equipment and everything else that belongs to him in a separate quarter - in the basement; 2) excercise equipment including hockey gear and skates in the basement. 3) when you receive too many young people and they get noisy whereas you want a quiet sleep, you move everybody down into the .... (that's right you got it) the basement. 4) when it gets very hot upstairs in summer and you don't have central air conditoning, the best alternative is to hit the ...... 5) If you need to stow away your suitcases, your winter coats (including fur which I don't have) the best storage room can be found in the (where else) the basement.

Now another hidden advantage of the basement is the following. The best way to keep your own personal bathroom clean and safe from all alien invasion is to put an extra bathroom with shower stand in the basement.

That's what I shall be doing this afternoon. I am meeting a plumber at 3:30. When I went downstairs I was pleasantly surprised to see that when this house was originally built in 1987 the contractor had made provision for pipes and drains for that purpose. I hope that today I can agree with the plumber on a price and date to complete the work.

Work can later begin on finishing the walls and floors etc to make a proper bedroom with bookcase and the rest of shebang. Will keep you posted.

Joe. This bit should last you a couple of days. Okay?
