President Ronald Reagon National Day of Prayer Breakfast 1984
President Ronald Reagan commented on the Roman Coliseum at the National Prayer Breakfast, February 2, 1984:
"This power of prayer can be illustrated by the story that goes back to the fourth century -- the monk (Telemachus) living in a little remote village, spending most of his time in prayer ...
One day he thought he heard the voice of God telling him to go to Rome ...
Weeks and weeks later, he arrived ... at a time of a festival in Rome ...
... He followed a crowd into the Coliseum, and then, there in the midst of this great crowd, he saw the gladiators come forth, stand before the Emperor, and say, 'We who are about to die salute you.'
And he realized they were going to fight to the death for the entertainment of the crowds.
He cried out, 'In the Name of Christ, stop!'
And his voice was lost in the tumult there in the great Colosseum ..."
"And as the games began, he made his way down through the crowd and climbed over the wall and dropped to the floor of the arena.
Suddenly the crowds saw this scrawny little figure making his way out to the gladiators and saying, over and over again, 'In the Name of Christ, stop!'
And they thought it was part of the entertainment, and at first they were amused.
But then, when they realized it wasn't, they grew belligerent and angry ..."
"And as he was pleading with the gladiators, 'In the Name of Christ, stop!' one of them plunged his sword into his body.
And as he fell to the sand of the arena in death, his last words were, 'In the Name of Christ, stop!' ...
...And suddenly, a strange thing happened.
The gladiators stood looking at this tiny form lying in the sand. A silence fell over the Colosseum. And then, someplace up in the upper tiers, an individual made his way to an exit and left, and the others began to follow.
And in the dead silence, everyone left the Colosseum. That was the last battle to the death between gladiators in the Roman Colosseum.
Never again did anyone kill or did men kill each other for the entertainment of the crowd ..."
"One tiny voice that could hardly be heard above the tumult. 'In the Name of Christ, stop!'
It is something we could be saying to each other throughout the world today."

The last words of Steve Jobs
I have come to the pinnacle of success in business.
In the eyes of others, my life has been the symbol of success.
However, apart from work, I have little joy. Finally, my wealth is simply a fact to which I am accustomed.
At this time, lying on the hospital bed and remembering all my life, I realize that all the accolades and riches of which I was once so proud, have become insignificant with my imminent death.
In the dark, when I look at green lights, of the equipment for artificial respiration and feel the buzz of their mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of my approaching death looming over me.
Only now do I understand that once you accumulate enough money for the rest of your life, you have to pursue objectives that are not related to wealth.
It should be something more important: For example, stories of love, art, dreams of my childhood.

Hope Arrived To Give Her A Second Chance
Feeling unloved by her father and used by a boyfriend, teenager Annie Lobert yearned inside for the power to exact revenge over men. Money to have nice things. To be someone important. It over rode any caution in her life and within a short time she was selling her body, gaining the money she thought was her answer to a better life. It was a lie. The money instead went to her violent pimp and for many years her world descended into a hell filled with prostitution, cancer, drug addiction and no future. Yet when she cried out to God in her darkest and most dangerous moment, hope arrived to give her a second chance.
So it has finally happened…
…an American president with enough chutzpah and understanding of reality has declared Jerusalem to be what everyone else knows her to be…the capital city of the State of Israel!
President Trump, sir I salute you.
To try and make a case for any other ‘reality’ for Jerusalem is to deny history, the present day, and the inevitable future.
Approximately 1,000 years B.C., David son of Jesse was anointed a king over all Israel. After the death of King Saul, David defeated many of her enemies, united the tribes, and conquered the Jerusalem fortress, naming the city his capital city, and the capital of the nation.
There he built his White House, established his authority, built his army and ruled for forty years. At his death, he established his son Solomon as king and commissioned him to build the Holy Temple to Adonai on the mountain where Abraham and Isaac had the famous encounter with the Angel of the Lord described in Genesis 22.
The reality today is even more obvious, even to the casual observer.
In 1948, the land known as the British Mandate was divided into two parcels. East of the Jordan River was given to the Arab population, and west of the Jordan River to the Jews who remained after Hitler’s Nazi Holocaust.
This land would not come without a terrible cost, however, and after an initial battle for the right to possess the land in 1948 against an overwhelming Arab coalition from five countries, Israel maintained possession of most of the land including west Jerusalem.
Many unprovoked wars would ensue, however, and in the famous battle of 1967 called the Six Day War, Israel reunited the eternal city of Jerusalem and restored her authority over the entire city, naming it the capital of the State of Israel once again.
In the future, this will be the city of cities as Messiah, King of the Jews returns to sit on the throne of David and to reign and rule from there for 1,000 years.
The prophet Zechariah tells us that all nations will be required to come up year after year to worship the King in Jerusalem, or they will have no rain for their lands. The City of Gold, The City of David, The City of God, The City of the Great King; these are all names for the same city that stands as the eternal capital of the same nation for all these 3,000 years. Only a very gullible or naïve person could be persuaded otherwise; someone who completely ignores history, the present reality, or the inevitable future.
Thankfully, President Trump is neither naive, ignorant, nor afraid to take a stand with the obvious truth, and I believe that this move will make peace much more possible in the very near future.
Several years ago I was ministering in Costa Rica when the Word of the Lord hit me like a ton of bricks. The Lord declared that he was waiting and watching for any nation that would agree with His word and move their embassy to Jerusalem.
He said that a great blessing was waiting to be unleashed on the first nation to believe Him and take a bold stand for the truth. I believe that El Salvador and Costa Rica were the last nations to maintain their embassies in Jerusalem, but because of political pressure, they moved them to Tel-Aviv along with the rest of us. Many of the people who heard the word that day agreed and began to pray that their leaders would do this thing. Alas, in all this time it seems that the blessing will be given to the United States of America as she takes a bold stand once again for truth.
I personally believe that the US is finally aligning herself with the God of Israel, and the ramifications for our future are very bright.

Frank Abagnale gained notoriety in the U.S. and overseas for his fraudulent crimes.
Fred A. Kummerow, a German-born biochemist and lifelong contrarian whose nearly 50 years of advocacy led to a federal government ban on the use of trans-fatty acids in processed foods, a ruling that could prevent tens of thousands of premature deaths a year, died on Wednesday at his home in Urbana, Ill. He was 102.
His family announced his death. He had been a longtime professor at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.
Artificial trans fats — derived from the hydrogen-treated oils used to give margarine its easy-to-spread texture and prolong the shelf life of crackers, cookies, icing and hundreds of other staples in the American diet — were ruled unsafe by the Food and Drug Administration partly in response to a lawsuit that Professor Kummerow filed against the agency in 2013, two months shy of his 99th birthday. The ban, announced in 2015, goes into effect in 2018.
Professor Kummerow was one of the first scientists to suggest that the saturated fat in butter, cheese and meats did not contribute to the clogging of arteries and was in fact beneficial in moderate amounts. This hypothesis, controversial at the time, was proved correct.
His own diet, he said, included red meat, whole milk and eggs scrambled in butter

The True Story of Desmond Doss - Award-Winning True Documentary of Hacksaw Ridge
Private Desmond Doss walked into the bloodiest battle of World War II’s Pacific theater with nothing to protect himself save for his Bible and his faith in God. A devout Christian and conscientious objector, Doss had enlisted as a medic and refused to carry a rifle.The fighting took place on the hellish Maeda Escarpment in April 1945. The battlefield, located on top of a sheer 400-foot cliff, was fortified with a deadly network of Japanese machine gun nests and booby traps. The escarpment, nicknamed Hacksaw Ridge for the treacherously steep cliff, was key to winning the battle of Okinawa. The mission was thought to be near-impossible, and when Doss’s battalion was ordered to retreat, the medic refused to leave his fallen comrades behind.Facing heavy machine gun and artillery fire, Doss repeatedly ran alone into the kill zone, carrying wounded soldiers to the edge of the cliff and singlehandedly lowering them down to safety. Each time he saved a man’s life, Doss prayed out loud, “Lord, please help me get one more.” By the end of the night he had rescued an estimated 75 men. (The always modest Doss reckoned he saved about 50, but his fellow soldiers gauged it closer to 100. They decided to split the difference.)Now, the unbelievable story has come to life in the Mel Gibson-directed Hacksaw Ridge, with Andrew Garfield starring as Doss. The film earning a 10-minute standing ovation at its red carpet world premiere at the Venice Film Festival in September.
She Gave Me More
On a cold December day in 1988, a poor crippled Eastern Shore widow named Aunt Mary Riley shared with me the greatest Christmas gift of all. In the spring of 1990, this same 84-year-old woman was found murdered inside her one room house, stabbed to death by a young neighbor boy high on crack cocaine. According to the world's standards, Aunt Mary had nothing of value, but according to God's standards, she possessed the greatest gift of all. Once again, it is my honor to share the true story of how a 15-minute encounter 26 Christmases ago with a precious lady helped me discover the only true gift of lasting value - a gift so precious, it will last for all eternity!

In the wake of Joey Feek's death from cancer, the late country singer's husband Rory is opening up about her emotional public memorial.
Held in her hometown of Alexandria, Indiana, on Sunday, the event honored Joey's childhood, years performing with Rory as Joey+Rory and the legacy of love she left behind for the couple's daughter, Indiana, 2.
"In the Alexandria High School gymnasium – the same place where Joey had played basketball and volleyball and cheered for her home team – a few thousand people gathered together in her honor," wrote Rory, 50, on his blog This Life I Live on Friday. "But this time, the cheers were all for her."
Even though he managed to smile at the event, Rory says it was challenging to prepare himself on their way to Indiana from their home in Pottsville, Tennessee, where Joey was laid to rest on March 8.
"A few minutes before, as Indy was still napping, I sat in the back hallway of the bus and did my best to come up with a few words to say ... to thank this town and to lift up my beautiful bride and this community," he penned.
Rory explained how the town has impacted not just Joey's life, but his as well. He reminisced about the first time he visited Alexandria in April 2002, when he proposed to her after just two months of dating. After asking for permission from Joey's father for her hand in marriage, Rory took her for a walk down the road where her brother was killed in a car accident years earlier.
"Back at her mama's farmhouse, I took Joey's hand and we walked west through the dark, down the little lane that they live on," Rory wrote. "We stopped about a quarter-mile away, right in front of the white cross on the side of the road where Justin had been killed.
Rory recalled how Joey told him she and her "mama were the first ones to the scene," where she "knelt over her brother" and prayed for him "minutes after the accident that took his life."
He added: "I wanted to change that moment for her ... to try to make it better. To turn that place into a beautiful beginning instead of a heartbreaking ending."
Having made "a hundred trips back" since then, Rory said none have been more special than going back for Joey's memorial on March 13.
"We took one final tour bus ride home. To Joey's town," he shared. "To grieve with and celebrate with the people in her community. And to lift up one of their own with tears and joy and songs and speeches."
Rory thanked the people of the town for their outpouring of love and generosity.

High pH Coffee!!!
In October of 2014, I was faced with a difficult decision. I had just been diagnosed with aggressive prostate cancer. I was also suffering daily from severe joint pain and inflammation throughout my body. I had no other choice, but to take my website's advice and totally eliminate all acidic foods and beverages from my diet; including my all time favorite drink, coffee! Four month after staring my high pH alkaline diet (consuming foods and drinks with a pH of 7 or higher), all of my inflammation was gone, never again to return. Also, in February of 2015, I had my prostate surgically removed and I am now cancer free! The only staple from my daily diet that I truly missed was my morning cup of coffee. Now- "Praise God!"- over one year later, I can start my day once again with a full cup of hazelnut coffee! Watch this simple experiment I tried two weeks ago that will raise the pH of your daily cup of coffee from a highly acidic 4.5 to a healthy 7.5.

A Powerful Story!
Kathie Lee Gifford returns to the co-host seat of the Today Show for the first time since her husband Frank passed away and shares how she and her family are coping with the loss and the personal and touching story of how his faith shaped his life.
The year was 2014. I was sick. Sicker than I had ever been in my entire life! I had inflammation from head to toe. Every joint of my body ached constantly. At times the pain was excruciating! I was also obese. None of my clothes fit anymore. I was also up all hours of the night having difficulty urinating. My PSA, a protein used to measure prostate inflammation and cancer, was off the charts at 21. Physically, I was a 62 year-old physical wreck on the verge of receiving some very devastating news. My urological biopsy results indicated I had aggressive prostate cancer.
That was last year. Today is August 5th, 2005. I am totally pain free, inflammation free, cancer free and 50 pounds lighter. (I am back to my high school waistline!!). How did I do it, you might ask? I took my own advice found at my website, bemadewhole.net. Watch my testimony and find out.
The Return of the Violin
Testimony of the Month
Meet Hamoody Smith, a fearless, wildly ambitious 12-year-old boy. For a moment when you see him, you are struck by what's different about him physically: The facial disfigurement. The prosthetic eye. The misshapen nose. But within moments all of that is gone, and you are struck by what's different about him in every other way; the life that seems to pour out of him in endless streams, the energy that never ceases, the intellect and the drive. He loves to get physical. You should see him grinding and gutting it out on the wrestling mat. He throws 'em down. They throw him down. And he loves it. Hamoody is aggressive. You could even call him cocky. His is an invincible, unbend-able will. As he sits on his bed wearing a Marshawn Lynch jersey holding a football, with a WSU pillow propped up behind him, I ask him about his life philosophy. His credo. He answers this way: "What I do is I'm thankful for my setbacks, and those have become my blessings."
