A young man serving in the army, was constantly humiliated because he believed in God.
One day the Captain wanted to humiliate this soldier before the entire army. He called the soldier and said “Soldier, come here to pick up your keys and go to the car park. There is a Jeep. Sit behind the wheel and drive it to the Commandant’s Office and park my car there.”
We have all done things in our zealousness that were, what we thought, was right at the time. Only to find out that it was our own zealous desire from our heart and not necessarily God’s desire or His perfect will for us. But we have a loving Father who is gracious, patient and forgiving and oft well pleased and delighted that we would be so zealous for Him.
The Qur’an proclaims that Allah sent down the Book (Qur’an), the Taurat (Torah or the Law of Moses) and the Injeel (Gospel of Jesus):
Surah 3:3 -It is He Who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth, the Book, confirming what went before it; and He sent down the Taurat (Torah or the Law of Moses) and the Injeel (Gospel of Jesus) before this, as a guide to mankind, and He sent down the criterion (of judgment between right and wrong).
If the Qur’an states that all of these books were given by Allah in truth, then all 3 books must be read and believed by all Muslims and not just the Qur’an only which book is to “confirm what went before it” as stated above. Continue reading Jesus Al-Masih in the Qur’an→
How are you? I just had to send you this letter to tell you how much I love you and care about you.
I saw you yesterday as you were walking with your friends. I waited all day, hoping you would walk and talk with me also. As evening drew near, I gave you a sunset to close your day, and a cool breeze to rest you. Then I waited, but you never came. O yes, it hurt me, but I still love you because I am your friend.
I saw you fall asleep last night, and I longed to touch your brow, so I spilled moonlight upon your pillow and your face… Again I waited, wanting to rush down so we could talk. I have so many gifts for you. Continue reading Love Letter From A Friend→
“Saved from what?” you might ask. Separation from God, is the answer. “But I don’t need God in my life.” No, you probably don’t believe that you do at the moment. That’s only because you cannot see the other world yet that is hidden from you right now. But someday you will see it and your eyes will be opened. You only have natural eyes right now. Someday you will have spiritual eyes once your natural eyes have died with the rest of your body. Your spirit will live on and then you will see what you have been missing all this time.

On July 7th of 2016 at 2:42 PM, I received an urgent prayer request from JGLM headquarters entitled “Missing Person, NJ”. Here is what the message said:
I live in NJ and Clarissa is my daughter, 35 and is having a mental, physical problems. She is missing, and I need prayer for her. I need every prayer for restoration and healing and freedom, I know God can restore. Please call me.
I called the requestor who was her mother, Francine (all names have been changed to protect their identities). She was frantic that her daughter, with mental issues, had left her house several days ago without a trace of where she went. She had been calling everyone she knew to no avail. Now she was asking for prayer for her daughter to be found and restored to her. Continue reading Missing Person Found Same Day→
After my wife and I had spent 3 weeks in Holland visiting our families, I needed to return to New Jersey for business. For the next week or so I lived like a bachelor, working, eating and sleeping when I wanted without any regard to time of day.
One night I was standing at my bathroom counter reading my bible on my iPad. Since the counter is low, I was standing wide legged and without realizing it, must have been standing in that position for over an hour. When I noticed that it was past 2 AM, I decided I should go to bed. Continue reading According To Your Faith→
This world is not what it appears to be. A world fashioned to deceive and distract from the one thing that is the most important…our Creator. At this very moment there is a pitched battle going on for your soul, both in the seen and the unseen worlds.
The enemy does not want you, but he sure does not want your Father and especially His Son to have you either. He has never cared for you and never will. Your are just a pawn to him. Just a tool to strike back at the One who has defeated him and put him to public shame. Continue reading Welcome To The Real World→
