Parents please teach your Children about 9/11.
This Video is to Honor the Memories of all who Died on September 11 2001, all the Brave Men and Women of the FDNY. There were many Heroes who Died, who survived that day. This Video also Honors the Heroes of Benghazi the men who died, the men who disobeyed orders and rescued people from the US Embassy.
It has been 18 years since the Horror of September 11, 2001, and 8 years since Benghazi. Young Adults today don’t remember either attack, because they were too young or not even alive when they happened. Parents please teach your Children about 9/11. They will never learn it at school. Schools today Honor Islam “Islam is the religion of Peace” and teach kids that the USA is Evil. That we deserved 9/11. Kids in our schools are taught to Hate the United States. They can not read the Bible in School and are forced to learn Islam.
Was 9/11 a False Flag Operation?
The 9/11 events and the anomalies in the official story raised Unanswered Questions about:
• the unprecedented failure of the US air defense system on the morning of the attacks;
• the AWOL military chain of command during the actual attacks, including the inexplicable behavior of the presidential entourage;
• the seeming impossibility of official claims with regard to Flight 77;
• the evidence that Flight 93 was shot down or a bomb went off destroying it;
• contradictions and dubious evidence in the official claims about the alleged hijackers and masterminds, and doubts about their real identities;
• signs that the alleged hijackers enjoyed high-level protection against discovery by honest investigators;
• evidence that the alleged hijackers were financed by states allied with US intelligence;
• suspicious and massive international financial trades suggesting foreknowledge of the attacks;
• widespread signs of official foreknowledge and, in fact, advance preparation for the 9/11 attack scenario;
• the long-running links between Islamist fundamentalist terror cells and US covert operations, dating back to CIA support for the anti-Soviet mujahedeen and Osama Bin Ladin himself;
• the demolition-like collapse of the Twin Towers and of a third skyscraper, WTC7;
• and questions concerning who could have logically expected to derive benefit in the aftermath of a massive attack on the United States.
This is a Tribute Video honoring all the Heroes of Flight 93, two Music Videos and: Discovery Channel Flight 93: The Flight That Fought Back… A 2005 docudrama about the efforts of the passengers aboard United Airlines Flight 93 to derail the 9/11 terrorists' plan for the hijacked airliner.
We all know the inspiring story of Flight 93, of the heroic passengers who forced the hijacked plane to the ground, sacrificing themselves to save the lives of others. The only trouble is: we don’t know the whole truth. John Carlin reports from Shanksville, Pennsylvania the alternative theories, both of which have been denied by the US military and the FBI, are a) that Flight 93 was brought down by a US government plane; and b) that a bomb went off aboard (passengers had said in phone calls that one of the hijackers had what appeared to be a bomb strapped to him). If doubts remain despite the denials, if conspiracy theories flourish, it is in large part because of the authorities' failure to address head-on questions centering on the following four conundrums.
1. The wide displacement of the plane's debris, one explanation for which might be an explosion of some sort aboard prior to the crash. Letters – Flight 93 was carrying 7,500 pounds of mail to California – and other papers from the plane were found eight miles (13km) away from the scene of the crash. A sector of one engine weighing one ton was found 2,000 yards away. This was the single heaviest piece recovered from the crash, and the biggest, apart from a piece of fuselage the size of a dining-room table. The rest of the plane, consistent with an impact calculated to have occurred at 500mph, disintegrated into pieces no bigger than two inches long. Other remains of the plane were found two miles away near a town called Indian Lake. All of these facts, widely disseminated, were confirmed by the coroner Wally Miller.
2. The location of US Air Force jets, which might or might not have been close enough to fire a missile at the hijacked plane. Live news media reports on the morning of 11 September conflict with a number of official statements issued later. What the government acknowledges is that the first fighters with the mission to intercept took off at 8.52am; that another set of fighters took off from Andrews Air Force base near Washington at 9.35am – precisely the time that Flight 93 turned almost 180 degrees off course towards Washington and the hijacker pilot was heard by air-traffic controllers to say that there was "a bomb aboard". Flight 93, whose menacing trajectory was made known by the broadcast media almost immediately, did not go down for another 31 minutes. Apart from the logical conclusion that at least one Air Force F-16 – 125 miles away in Washington at 9.40am, meaning 10 minutes away from Flight 93 (or less if it flew at supersonic speed) – should have reached the fourth of the "flying bombs" well before 10.06am, there is this evidence from a federal flight controller published a few days later in a newspaper in New Hampshire: that an F-16 had been "in hot pursuit" of the hijacked United jet and "must have seen the whole thing". Also, there was one brief report on CBS television before the crash that two F-16 fighters were tailing Flight 93. Vice-President Dick Cheney acknowledged five days later that President Bush had authorized the Air Force pilots to shoot down hijacked commercial aircraft.
3. One telephone call from the doomed plane whose contents do not entirely tally with the hero legend and which is accordingly omitted in the Independence Day-type dramas favored by the US media. The Associated Press news service reported on 11 September that eight minutes before the crash, a frantic male passenger called the 911 emergency number. He told the operator, named Glen Cramer, that he had locked himself inside one of the plane's toilets. Cramer told the AP, in a report that was widely broadcast on 11 September, that the passenger had spoken for one minute. "We're being hijacked, we're being hijacked!" the man screamed down his mobile phone. "We confirmed that with him several times," Cramer said, "and we asked him to repeat what he said. He was very distraught. He said he believed the plane was going down. He did hear some sort of an explosion and saw white smoke coming from the plane, but he didn't know where. And then we lost contact with him."
According to the information that has been made known, this was the last of the various phone calls made from the aeroplane. No more calls were received from the plane in the eight minutes that remained after the man in the toilet said that he had heard an explosion.
4. Eyewitness accounts of a "mystery plane" that flew low over the Flight 93 crash site shortly after impact. Lee Purbaugh is one of at least half a dozen named individuals who have reported seeing a second plane flying low and in erratic patterns.
This Sermon: Behold the Man explains the Fact that Jesus was a Man, that Jesus is God. This bible truth, this concept is too much for the majority of people in the world to comprehend, to believe.
1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
The Man Christ Jesus…. Many many people stumble on the Fact that Jesus the Son of God was in Fact God. They don’t understand the Scriptures. The bible clearly teaches that Jesus was a Man. The Bible teaches that Jesus the Son of God was the 2nd part of the Trinity. The Trinity is God the Father, God the Son God The Holy Spirit.
1 Tim 3:16
And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
Mankind can’t grasp and understand how God became Man. It is in fact a Mystery. This is why if takes Faith to be Saved. Christianity is the Christian Faith. Salvation itself is a Mystery.
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 1:14
25 Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, 26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith: 27 To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.
The Phrase “Conspiracy Theory” Is thrown at anyone who suggests that NASA Faked the Moon Landings. No matter which side you fall on this Video is a must see. Do you know Neil DeGrasse Tyson says the Earth is not a sphere? He says the Earth is Pear Shaped…. Look it up if you don’t believe me. If the Earth is not shaped like a basketball but is shaped like a Pear why does all of NASA’s Pictures show the Earth as a round Sphere?
Multi Millions of People around the world believe that NASA Faked the moon landings. Roger Launius, a senior curator at the National Air and Space Museum’s Space History Division, discusses the belief that the moon landings never actually happened.
How many today believe that the six manned moon landings (1969–72) were faked and that 12 Apollo astronauts did not actually walk on the moon?
A 1999 Gallup poll found that only 6 percent of Americans doubted the Apollo 11 moon landing happened. But – as the 21st century brought a rise in internet use and a different standard of truth in media – that number has risen, so that NASA’s own Opinion polls taken in various locations have shown that 25% of Americans, 52% of Europe, and 69% of Russians surveyed believe that the manned landings were faked.
Normalizing Pedophilia, the Advance of the Homosexual Agenda, and the Promotion of Pornography is the goal of the unsaved World.
Militant homosexuals and their supporters have adopted the following tactics with the goal of forcing their beliefs on society:
• eliminating free speech by harassing and attempting to silence anyone who disagrees with them;
• preying on children by indoctrinating and recruiting them into their lifestyle;
• imposing their beliefs on others through activist judges and lawmakers requiring that everyone actively promote homosexuality in every institution (schools, workplace, churches, etc.);
• destroying marriage and undermining the traditional family in order to annihilate any moral standard of behavior;
• intolerance toward anyone who does not willingly submit to their agenda;
• fighting for a discriminatory and unconstitutional double standard of justice by demanding that crimes against homosexuals be punished more severely than the same crimes against heterosexuals through 'hate crimes' legislation; and
• deceptively portraying homosexuality as a harmless and victimless behavior.
The homosexual agenda is based on intolerance of anyone who disagrees with them and is a well-coordinated, well-financed, wide-ranging, intensive effort to infiltrate and influence organizations and society at large in order to spread misinformation with the goal of recruiting children. Click for homosexual quotes.
Children are the prize to the winners of the cultural war. Those who control what young people are taught and what they experience will determine the future course for our nation. The predominant value system of an entire culture can be overhauled by those with unlimited access to children. Homosexual activists understand very clearly how important children are to their cause.
Our children are being bombarded in school with the homosexual version of "tolerance." In other words, all beliefs are equal, all values are equal, all lifestyles are equal and all truth is equal. This is the basis upon which our children are being indoctrinated by the propaganda that their beliefs and values which they learned in their home are no different from those of a homosexual, or a pornographer, or someone involved in adultery or fornication, etc. Children are being taught that all truth is relative to the individual. Knowing right from wrong doesn't matter. To say something is right or wrong is not being tolerant. This is today's "tolerance" pushed by homosexual activists.
Researchers are now claiming that it is normal for men to feel a sexual attraction to young, pre-pubescent children. As the homosexual rights movement continues to gain ground, we hear increasingly about the normalization of pedophilia in our culture. There is a definite agenda to normalize sexually deviant behavior while pushing for pedophile rights. Pedophiles are actively seeking to lower the age of consent laws when it comes to lawful sexual behavior with another. They claim that sex with children is not only a natural desire felt by adult males, but that in many cases, the children affected may benefit from it as opposed to experiencing harm. Many gay rights activists also push the idea that child sexual abuse committed against young boys is not a homosexual problem, but one of heterosexual males instead. This is a sick, twisted agenda being pushed under the guise of a human rights campaign backed up by fallacious research supporting the desires of sodomites. If not stopped, this will have dire consequences for the future of humanity.
Dr Peter S Ruckman narrates this Video on the last book of the Bible the Book of Revelation. He uses classical music and numerous drawings he drew to make the book of Revelation come alive in this much loved Christian Film about the last days of humanity on the Earth. Events that are soon to happen.

Welfare Program Results
Following the welfare reform act of 1996, government spending on welfare programs decreased as additional requirements and restrictions were put into action. Despite having less budget to pull from and more restrictions, the welfare programs in America have successfully lowered poverty rates over the past decade. Some issues with the current welfare program are its performance during years of economic downturn and recession.
Government welfare programs are cited for the decline of the poverty rate from 25 percent in 1967 to 14 percent in 2016.
Only 23 percent of families living in poverty receive Temporary Assistance for Needy Families cash assistance in the United States.
During the great recession from 2007 to 2009, despite doubled unemployment rates, the number of families receiving assistance grew by only 13 percent. [Source:
The number of children living in poverty in the United States decreased from 44.9 percent in 2010 to 41.2 percent in 2016.
Average Spending of Welfare Recipients
Compared to the average American household, welfare recipients spend far less money on all food consumption including dining out in a year. As families receiving welfare assistance on average have half the total spending in one year than families not receiving welfare there are some large differences in budgeting. Families receiving welfare spend on average 154 percent less on entertainment and 123 percent less on healthcare costs.
The official poverty rate in 2017 was 12.3 percent, down 0.4 percentage points from 12.7 percent in 2016. This is the third consecutive annual decline in poverty. Since 2014, the poverty rate has fallen 2.5 percentage points, from 14.8 percent to 12.3 percent.
From 2016 to 2017 the number of people in poverty decreased for people in families; people living in the West; people living outside metropolitan statistical areas; all workers; workers who worked less than full-time, year-round; people with a disability; people with a high school diploma but no college degree; and people with some college but no degree.
In 2017, there were 39.7 million people in poverty, not statistically different from the number in poverty in 2016.
Between 2016 and 2017, the poverty rate for adults aged 18 to 64 declined 0.4 percentage points, from 11.6 percent to 11.2 percent, while poverty rates for individuals under age 18 and for people aged 65 and older were not statistically different from 2016.
Between 2016 and 2017, people with at least a bachelor’s degree were the only group to have an increase in the poverty rate or the number of people in poverty. Among this group, the poverty rate increased 0.3 percentage points and the number in poverty increased by 363,000 individuals between 2016 and 2017. Even with this increase, among educational attainment groups, people with at least a bachelor’s degree had the lowest poverty rates in 2017
This Sermon by Dr. Ruckman. is very vivid. As a Christian believer we were saved by Jesus. Jesus took our place... We understand and believe the Gospel: Jesus Died in our place for all of our sins, Was Buried and He Rose On The Third Day, to save us from our sins.... Jesus paid the price for our sins, He paid the penalty due. Even with this.... How can we truly understand Jesus Crucifixion? Jesus died for Me (For You) that is very personal. Jesus would have died if it meant to only save Me. We can hardly comprehend this bring it to that personal of a level.... This is simply mind blowing....
Barabbas was set free so Jesus could be Crucified.... Barabbas truly had to understand the Crucifixion.....

Some day soon, the Lord Jesus Christ is going to return and take all the born-again Christians to heaven. These instructions are for the people who are left behind, to tell them what to do after they have missed the Rapture. We are warning you about this now, because we won't be around then. All of these instructions are found in the Holy Bible, which is the first thing you're going to need to find out what is going on.
Matthew 24:36 "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37 "But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 "For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 "And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40 "Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41 "Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 "Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 "But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 "Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh."
Is Abortion Murder? That should not even be a question. We protect bird eggs, eggs of all forms of Life but we refuse to protect Human Life.... If you don't know Abortion is murder than you must watch this Video all the way thru. If you are Pro Life you need to Watch and Share, these songs are Biblical and beautiful. These Videos are well made and will speak to your Heart.
From a student In Sue Bohlin's “Introduction to Ethics” class, the topic was abortion. As the discussion progressed, people all around her were saying that an abortion is good to do under any situation (rape, too young, the woman’s choice) and she argued my point is that abortion is murder. She stated that the Bible had claimed to that statement also. The teacher then told me that I have to prove to him and the class that the Bible says abortion is murder. Can you help me with verses, or anything I could possibly use to make my point valid?
Glad you asked!
The perspective that abortion is murder depends on two points: 1) The Bible condemns murder (taking the life of another human being), and 2) The unborn baby is a person—a human being.
Point #1: What is murder?
Exodus 20:13, usually translated “Thou shalt not kill,” one of the Ten Commandments, actually means “Thou shalt not murder.” (There is a difference. Taking the life of another person in war, for example, is not the same thing as murder.)
Point #2: The humanity of the unborn
1. Both Hebrew and Greek (the languages of the Bible) do not make a distinction between pre-born and born babies. Whether they live
No Son Of Mine. A Music Video by Phil Collins. After the video I talk about abuse in Families. Child Abuse, Family Members abusing each other.
The Child Abuse and Prevention Treatment Act defines child abuse and neglect or child maltreatment as:
Any recent act or failure to act on the part of a parent or caretaker, which results in death, serious physical or emotional harm, sexual abuse or exploitation, or an act or failure to act which presents an imminent risk of serious harm.
Neglect is a failure to meet the child’s basic needs, e.g., not providing enough food, shelter or basic supervision, necessary medical or mental health treatment, adequate education or emotional comfort. Physical abuse refers to the injury of a child on purpose, e.g., striking, kicking, beating, biting or any action that leads to physical injury. Sexual abuse is the use, persuasion or forcing of a child to engage in sexual acts or imitation of such acts.
Emotional, physical and/or sexual abuse in childhood commonly causes adult depression, according to an article published in "Psychology Today" in 2003. Many adults can go years with depression without understanding the underlying causes. Recovering from depression requires the effort to identify the symptoms and their sources, and to change thoughts and behaviors, and alter brain structure and chemistry.
Each type of child abuse has unique characteristics, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Emotional abuse occurs when a child is subjected to close confinement, threats of terror, and verbal assaults such as belittling, rejecting and being made a scapegoat. Physical abuse involves being purposefully hit, punched, kicked, dropped or dragged. Sexual abuse includes genital molestation, exposure or voyeurism, intrusion, prostitution or involvement in pornography.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates that 1.25 million children experienced abuse in 2005 and 2006, of which 27 percent suffered emotional abuse, 58 percent physical abuse and 24 percent sexual abuse. The National Institute of Mental Health estimates that among adults ages 18 and older, approximately 15 million have major depression and 3 million have chronic mild depression. The onset for depression for most people begins after age 30, and it affects a higher percentage of women than men. People with a history of emotional and physical abuse have an earlier age at onset of depression and a longer duration of illness, according to a study published in the "Journal of Psychiatric Research" in 2010.
The signs of abuse vary by child and type of abuse, according to Prevent Child Abuse America. Extreme passivity or aggression, and lack of attachment to a parent are common signs of emotional abuse. A child who has unexplained marks and bruises on her face or body and is fearful of the perpetrator expresses signs of physical abuse. A child who has difficulty walking or sitting, unusual expertise about sex, or runs away from home may be suffering sexual abuse.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, depression can interfere with the ability to pursue daily activities to eat, work, play and sleep. The common signs of depression are feelings of prolonged sadness, worthlessness, fatigue, insomnia, loss of interest in pleasurable activities, and thoughts of suicide.
Adults who experienced abuse in childhood are sensitive to stress and have a cascade of biological effects that cause depression. According to research published in "Biological Psychiatry" in 2009, emotional abuse in childhood significantly diminishes response to cortisol, and this effect increases with age. Cortisol is a hormone released during stress that when chronically elevated, can reduce available levels of a chemical messenger in the brain called serotonin that can cause depression.
The trauma from abuse can last a lifetime. Early identification and treatment of abuse and depression can reduce the long term impact. Mental health professionals can help recovery.
This Video is to encourage Trump supporters. To have them celebrate how Blessed we are to have Trump for our President. Too many people from the Left and the Right are bashing Trump 24/7. People get scared every time someone says Trump is betraying his voters. Trump has not betrayed anyone. He is the only true Man in Leadership in all US political offices. I am Proud to say I have supported Trump since 2015 and I have never lost Faith in him.
President Trump's administration’s achievements are overlooked his list of accomplishments has surpassed those of former President Ronald Reagan at this time and more than doubled since the last tally of accomplishments after his first year in office, giving President Trump a solid platform to run on for re-election. He conducts political rallies around the country, during which he talks up his wins in hopes it will energize Republican voters, the administration has counted up 289 accomplishments in 18 categories, capped by the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. They include 173 major wins, such as adding more than 4 million jobs, and another 116 smaller victories, some with outsize importance, such as the 83 percent one-year increase in arrests of MS-13 gang members. “Trump’s successes in reducing the cost of taxes and regulations, rebuilding our military, avoiding wars of choice and changing the courts rival those of all previous Republican presidents,” said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform. Trump “Negotiated a historic U.S.-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement to replace NAFTA.” “President Trump is negotiating and renegotiating better trade deals, achieving free, fair, and reciprocal trade for the United States.” Under that umbrella are eight trade deals cut with Japan, South Korea, Europe and China.
“President Trump is a truly unique leader in American history. He’s a kid from Queens who became an international business leader and made billions by getting things when no one said he could,” said Trump’s 2016 campaign pollster John McLaughlin.
The Bible clearly teaches that Satan is the god of this world, meaning he has a specific authority over those who are not in Jesus Christ. Once someone becomes a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ the bond is broken, they are transferred from darkness to light (Colossians 1:13, Acts 26:18), and the strongman is bound (Matthew 12:29). The Scriptures also show the devil as a roaring lion, meaning he is like this in his demeanor and possibility of harm he can do.
When the Bible says that Satan is the "god of this world," it is not saying that he has ultimate authority. It is conveying the idea that Satan rules over the unbelieving world in a specific way. In the case of 2 Corinthians 4:4, the unbeliever follows Satan's agenda. According to 2 Corinthians 4:4, the "god of this world has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ." Satan's agenda includes pushing a false philosophy onto the unbelieving world—a false philosophy that blinds the unbeliever from the truth of the Gospel. Satan’s philosophies are the fortresses in which people are imprisoned, needing to be set free and brought captive to Christ in obedience to the truth.
In Jesus Christ we are totally free from Satan's power. Still we must stand guard against his evil ways. It is wrong to teach that the enemy is not our enemy or cannot cause us harm. He is looking to harm us and make us unfruitful in our walks with the Lord. Even our Lord warned that if possible the very elect could be deceived by the hosts of wickedness in the last days. Very clearly in the Bible it is shown that the devil has power over those who do not believe and we as ambassadors of Jesus can free people from his chains with the Good News the Gospel and the power of God. Go forth in that victory today, release those bound, pray over them in the Name of Jesus. Give hope and light to those who are blind. Jesus will in the end overthrow the enemy with one word from the his mouth on his second coming. We are victors in the Lord. Hallelujah.
In 1975, World Wide Pictures, the film-making arm of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, produced a movie version of the book, The Hiding Place. James Collier, who became a fast friend of Corrie Ten Boom's, perhaps because they both possessed exceptional gifts of imagination, was the director. Filmed in the Netherlands and in England, the movie was released nationally and internationally and was to become one of the most successful Christian films ever produced.
Corrie Ten Boom, although in her eighties, was very involved in the first half of filming in her native country. Because the old Ten Boom watch shop and house had been modernized since the war, the film company rebuilt and redecorated another shop three blocks away. So authentic were the German soldiers' uniforms and so real the film set, that when Corrie Ten Boom first entered she exclaimed, "For so many years I have talked about my experiences all over the world, yet I had dismissed those horrible nightmares from my mind. Today, it all suddenly comes back!"
Ravensbruck Concentration Camp, north of Berlin, Germany, where 96,000 women were exterminated, no longer exists. The camp was re-created at an old mobilization center for British soldiers in southern England. Although her doctor recommended she not visit the set depicting the camp, Corrie Ten Boom wanted to be there for the final days of shooting.
"It was difficult for me," she said. "The moment I entered the camp I felt it was all real again, maybe too real. It became too much for me. I couldn't hold my tears any longer, and maybe it was good that I cried."
1971 saw the publication of The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom, with John and Elizabeth Sherrill. This is the best-known of Corrie Ten Boom's almost two dozen books and has been read by millions worldwide. Pam Rosewell Moore recalls part of The Hiding Place's writing process:
"In 1968 I was present at some writing sessions in the Netherlands, and particularly remember the visit to the site of the Vught Concentration Camp in the south of Holland. This was the first of the two concentration camps in which Corrie Ten Boom and her sister, Betsie, were incarcerated for their parts in saving Jewish lives in World War II.
Determined to record facts accurately, Mr. and Mrs. Sherrill asked Miss Ten Boom to describe how the avenue on which we were walking looked on the night she and her sister Betsie were taken there. 'Corrie,' said John Sherrill, 'you told us that on that night in 1944 when you and Betsie were brought to this camp there were soldiers near the trees on each side of this avenue. Where were the soldiers exactly? In the trees or beside the trees? And those floodlights you told us were shining on you... Were they in the trees or between the trees?' Miss Ten Boom responded, 'I don't remember,' at first unwilling to unlock memories of her wartime experiences."
She made herself remember, however, and the blending of such detail with the element of danger for the Ten Boom family and the rescue of the Jewish people have made this a book about which many still say,"I could not put it down..."
The Hiding Place is the true Story of the Ten Boom Family. During the Second World War, the Ten Boom home became a refuge and a hiding place for fugitives and those hunted by the Nazis. By protecting these people, Casper and his daughters, Corrie and Betsie, risked their lives. Arrested and put into a concentration camp themselves, the Ten Boom family members clung to their faith in Christ during their ordeal.
The youngest of four children, Corrie Ten Boom was born on April 15, 1892, near Haarlem in the Netherlands. Her father, Casper Ten Boom, was a well-liked watch repairman, and often referred to as “Haarlem’s Grand Old Man.”
In his autobiography, Just As I Am, Billy Graham talked about Corrie and the film: “Corrie is one of the great Christian heroines of the century. We met her in Switzerland, and her story made such an impression on Ruth that she recommended it to writers John and Elizabeth Sherrill. They jumped at it; and the book and film that followed brought home the horror of those days and the triumph of Christ’s love in the midst of virulent hatred.”
Graham went on to share an incident from the film’s 1975 world premiere at the Beverly Theater in Los Angeles. “Shortly before the film was to start,” he wrote, “someone threw a tear-gas canister into the theater, forcing the crowd to evacuate. The showing had to be postponed. We held an impromptu street meeting out in front while the police and fire departments attempted to find out what had happened. I spoke to the crowd and prayed.”
At a reception later that evening, ten Boom spoke in her distinctive Dutch accent: “People asked me tonight, ‘What did you feel about this [tear-gas] bomb that was falling?’ I was touched. I was sad. Do you know why? Not only because there was in some way disappointment for people who had hoped to see the film but because on that bomb was the Hakenkreuz, the [Nazi] swastika.
“What we have to do,” said ten Boom, “is love these people who hate us—love them, pray for them. These people are wounded people who have hate in their hearts. They need forgiveness. They need the Lord. That is the answer we must give.”
Corrie Ten Boom has been an outspoken Christian. This is a talk she gave at a local Church. She shared her amazing testimony.
The Ten Boom family Faith inspired them to serve society, offering shelter, food and money to those in need. In this tradition, the family held a deep respect for the Jewish community in Amsterdam, considering them "God's ancient people.”
After the death of her mother and a disappointing romance, Corrie trained to be a watchmaker and in 1922 became the first woman licensed as a watchmaker in Holland. Over the next decade, in addition to working in her father's shop, she established a youth club for teenage girls, which provided religious instruction as well as classes in the performing arts, sewing and handicrafts.
In May 1940, the German Blitzkrieg ran though the Netherlands and the other Low Countries. Within months, the "Nazification" of the Dutch people began and the quiet life of the Ten Boom family was changed forever. During the war, the Beje house became a refuge for Jews, students and intellectuals. The façade of the watch shop made the house an ideal front for these activities. A secret room, no larger than a small wardrobe closet, was built into Corrie's bedroom behind a false wall. The space could hold up to six people, all of whom had to stand quiet and still. A crude ventilation system was installed to provide air for the occupants. When security sweeps came through the neighborhood, a buzzer in the house would signal danger, allowing the refugees a little over a minute to seek sanctuary in the hiding place.
On February 28, 1944, a Dutch informant told the Nazis of the ten Booms' activities and the Gestapo raided the home. They kept the house under surveillance, and by the end of the day 35 people, including the entire ten Boom family, were arrested, Although German soldiers thoroughly searched the house, they didn't find the half-dozen Jews safely concealed in the hiding place. The six stayed in the cramped space for nearly three days before being rescued by the Dutch underground.
All ten Boom family members were incarcerated, including Corrie's 84-year-old father, who soon died in the Scheveningen prison, located near The Hague. Corrie and her sister Betsie were remanded to the notorious Ravensbrück concentration camp, near Berlin. Betsie died there on December 16, 1944. Twelve days later, Corrie was released for reasons not completely known.
Corrie Ten Boom returned to the Netherlands after the war and set up a rehabilitation center for concentration camp survivors. In the Christian spirit to which she was so devoted, she also took in those who had cooperated with the Germans during the occupation. In 1946, she began a worldwide ministry that took her to more than 60 countries. She received many tributes, including being knighted by the queen of the Netherlands. In 1971, she wrote a best-selling book of her experiences during World War II, entitled The Hiding Place. In 1975, the book was made into a movie starring Jeannette Clift as Corrie and Julie Harris as her sister Betsie.
In 1977, at age 85, Corrie Ten Boom moved to Placentia, California. The next year, she suffered a series of strokes that left her paralyzed and unable to speak. She died on her 91st birthday, April 15, 1983. Her passing on this date evokes the Jewish traditional belief that states that only specially blessed people are granted the privilege of dying on the date they were born.
Christian has so many definitions it is mind boggling...
I have always realized that Non Christians are quick to tell Christians what a Christian is and is not.
"And you call yourself a Christian... You don't talk like a Christian...." "You aren't a Christian... Jesus is Love you have to Love everyone...."
"Christian's aren't suppose to swear, go to bars, hang out with drunks, pot heads...."
Non Christians Love to define what a Christian is and what a Christian is not.
Do you call Yourself a Christian?
What makes You a Christian?
Image of the Beast, or A Thief in the Night III, is a 1981 Christian end times film. It is part of the Thief in the Night series, popular in Christian groups dealing with the subject of Bible prophecy. The film is an account of the rise of the Antichrist, who establishes a world government and forces everyone to take the Mark of the Beast. A handful of Christians refuse to take the Mark and try to survive living apart from society.
The second film, A Thief in the Night being the first, A Distant Thunder continues the story of Patty, a young woman living in the "end times" referred to in biblical prophecy. This action suspense thriller finds Patty living as a fugitive, trying to hide from the ever increasing evil around her. Relentlessly pursued by the forces of UNITE, she will eventually face the choice: Either receive "the mark of the Beast" or face death.
The Tribulation is coming...and there will be no place to hide if you miss the rapture.
The first film in the 4-part series. Features the rapture and the cost of not accepting Jesus Christ. A story of Patty, a young woman caught up in living for the present with little concern for the future. As dramatic, earth shaking events begin to unfold around her, Patty realizes she is living in the end times spoken of in biblical prophecy.
The Relationship between David and Jonathan is a picture of true friendship.
Most people who talk about having dozens and dozens of friends just don't understand the definition of friendship.
A British publication once offered a prize for the best definition of a friend. Among the thousands of answers received were the following:
- “One who multiplies joys, divides grief, and whose honesty is inviolable.”
- “One who understands our silence.”
- “A volume of sympathy bound in cloth.”
- “A watch that beats for all time and never runs down.”
The winning definition read: “A friend is the one who comes in when the whole world has gone out.
Isn’t that the truth? By that definition most of us have many acquaintances but few if any real friends.
Statistics tell us that most people are lucky if they have one “close friend” in their lifetime. And with the fact that Americans are moving from place to place more now than ever before it becomes very difficult to make and keep such a friend.
