By: Jim & Carla Barbarossa

At a point in my life I became very sick. The job that I held for 19 years suddenly I missed 20 out of 22 months work. I was having symptoms ranging from severe headaches to dizziness and light-headedness. I lost the vision in my right eye at one time. I had stomach cramps and constipation. I had lumps underneath the skin that would just pop up anywhere, and nobody knew what they were. They would break open and drain. I lay on our couch for months waiting to die. Finally, my doctor sent me to the Mayo Clinic and they ran some tests. They diagnosed it as a rare blood disorder. Basically it was an over production of histamines within the blood stream. We had been blessed with many "things." We had a nice house, cars, a lot of adult toys: snowmobiles, campers, and other possessions. But there was something missing deep down inside. I chased after it and couldn't find it. I looked in bars, on the softball field, and in racquetball courts. I worked 16-hour days and made more money. I started my own business, then another business. I chased, looked and searched but nothing could fill the emptiness that I had deep within me. I thought...there has to be more. I missed something some place, but I just didn't know what it was. What I had done was to make my possessions my god, I had turned my back on God, and was headed for hell. It scares me now to think how close I was. Anything could have happened at any time and I could have been gone. One night, about 3 o'clock in the morning, we got a call from a good friend. His father had a heart attack. Something happened to me and I prayed. The only thing I can figure out is that it had to be the leading of the Holy Spirit, because I had never done anything like that before. If I had, it would have been for selfish reasons. It would be for myself, not for somebody else. I prayed and said, Lord, this is a good man. This is the kind of man You can use to lead me to You. God if you'll save him, I'll be in church on Sunday. So on Friday or Saturday of that week I said to my wife, don't make any plans for Sunday night, I have something to do. She was puzzled. I don't think she could figure out what was going on, or what was so important about Sunday night. But when I went to church with her I think that answered it. It was probably a shock to her. At the end of the service I didn't want to go home. I really felt comfortable. I felt at

peace. There was a calmness and I was really enjoying it. The following Sunday night I went back. I was sitting in the last pew at the back of the church, the closest one to the door, the one where you have a quick get away. There was an altar call given and I went to get up, but I couldn't move. It was like I was glued down. In my heart I wanted to get up, but something wouldn't release me. So I prayed and said, "God, if You want me, You'll have to send someone to get me." It wasn't but two seconds when a lady from the front of the church came back and said, "Jim, do you want to pray?" I said, "yes, I do." I went to the altar and I confessed my sins and asked Jesus Christ into my heart. I threw my hands up and said, "God, I want everything You have and I'll give You everything I've got!" My life has not been the same since. God is good! It was the best thing that ever happened to me. It was during that time that I had to leave the job that I had held for 20 years because of my medical problem. About 6 months after coming to know the Lord I had a lump on my chest. I went to the doctor and he said to come back in two weeks, we're going to lance it, and we're going to see what it is, if it's not gone. He gave me some medication. But I don't think he thought it would really do anything. So I took the medication for two weeks. I was due to go back to the doctor on Monday it was Sunday night, an hour before service. I'm taking a shower. I look in the mirror and the lump was as big as it was the day I went to the doctor. While standing in front of the mirror I remembered a scripture. "By His stripes we are healed." I'm looking at that lump, saying, "I don't have to have this. Jesus paid the price." I got dressed and went to church. I went up for prayer, and several people came up and laid hands on me. As they prayed, the power of God came down and I was slain in the Spirit. Lying on the floor, a hand was placed on my chest and I could feel the heat between the hand and the lump. It was like a warmth. One hour later, I went into the men's room and opened my shirt and that lump was the size of a freckle and the next day it was gone. Praise God! We have a healing miracle-working God. My doctor was amazed. One year after being saved, while kneeling at a communion service, I heard these words go through my mind: "My son this night as you confess your sins before me I wash them away with the blood that was shed for you on the cross and with that same blood I am now cleansing your diseased blood, you will go back to the doctor and it will be gone." Six weeks later I went back to the doctor. Tests were ordered and the results came back that my blood was normal. Praise God! One day in the bank I found a wallet lying on the counter. I took it to the teller and she thanked me profusely. She said, "nobody would have brought this back, and turned it in." I gave it to her and went to my car. As I was getting in the Holy Spirit said to take my testimony and give her one. I

and the results came back that my blood was normal. Praise God! One day in the bank I found a wallet lying on the counter. I took it to the teller and she thanked me profusely. She said, "nobody would have brought this back, and turned it in." I gave it to her and went to my car. As I was getting in the Holy Spirit said to take my testimony and give her one. I took two: one for the lady who lost the wallet and one for the teller. I didn't think anything about it after that. A week later my wife was in the bank. She didn't know what I had done, but the teller said, "I want to thank you so much for your husband's testimony. I want to tell you something. That empty feeling that he had, that void, I have that in me, too. Can I come to church with you?" We ended up in her house that night and prayed with her. She made a recommitment to serve the Lord and she is now in church. Last year my wife and I built a mini-storage warehouse. I met a gentleman who owned one. I drove by his house one day. He doesn't have an office on site, but I felt led to go in. He was there and I had a couple of testimonies and a tiny little red Bible. I left them with him and told him a little bit about my life and what God had been doing. This was in January. In May I ran into him in the store. I didn't recognize him because he looked different. He came up to me and said, "guess what? I go to church now." I said, "you do, tell me about it." He said, "do you remember that little red Bible you gave me. I sat it on my desk in January and three weeks ago I was sitting at my desk and had a feeling that I should pick up that little red Bible. I was looking through it and I felt something go through my hands. I didn't know what it was." I said, "brother, you were touched by the Holy Ghost." He shared that with his wife. She was born again a month before. She said, "I felt that, too, but the only time I ever felt it was in church. I want to feel it at home. " God is good. It was the leading of the Holy Spirit. A step of obedience and my brother was blessed. The greatest thing that has ever happened in my life is receiving Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. There is nothing that compares. That's the ultimate. The second greatest thing that I have ever had in my life was being allowed the privilege to be used as an instrument of Jesus Christ, to help lead somebody else out of darkness into the marvelous light. We were traveling and went into a waffle house restaurant. Everything went wrong. What we ordered they didn't have. My wife ordered a piece of pie with ice cream and they said, "well there is a convenience store down the street and you can get the ice cream and bring it back." My son wanted a hamburger with french fries and they didn't have any fries. Whatever it was they didn't have it. A man walked in and sat down behind us. He started talking about the weather, then he talked about a man he used to hunt with. He was in his 90's. He told us the man had passed away and he had never gotten over it. He told us when he was in Vietnam, he was in

a foxhole and he knew if he had died there he would have gone to heaven because Jesus Christ was in that fox hole with him. But the sad part about it was, here he was back in America, in a waffle house, and he left Jesus Christ in that foxhole. You could tell he was a lonely and hurting man. My wife looked at him and said, "you know what? Jesus is still here. You can have Him right now." But he started talking about some other stuff. It was about time for us to leave, as we were walking out of the restaurant, when my hand hit the door handle, the Holy Spirit stopped me, turned me around and said, "go talk to that man." I went back to him and laid my hand on his shoulder and said, "brother, I don't want to leave here today until you have Jesus Christ back in your heart where He's supposed to be." He said, "well, keep me in your prayers." I said, "how about we do one better than that, we'll pray for you right here and now. It was really neat what happened. We had our three sons with us and as we are talking with this man our sons are saying, "Dad, can we go get the Bible?" "Can we go get a tape?" "Can we help?" They saw the value of what we were doing. They knew how important it was for this man to be right with the Lord and they wanted to help, they wanted to partake. That was really great! We ended up praying with the man and he received Jesus Christ back into his heart right there in the middle of that restaurant. Obedience, to the Holy Spirit is probably the most important part of my testimony. The message that the Lord has given me is to challenge people to respond to Him. When I say that I'm obedient to God I'm not patting myself on the back, because I'm nobody. But because God decided to use me for a reason and whatever that reason is that's His decision.

did not appear wounded even though she had nothing to eat and drink for nearly a week, and had been taken to an American field hospital nearby.


QUAKE PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – A 16-year-old girl was pulled from the rubble more than two weeks after a deadly earthquake was in stable condition Thursday, able to eat yogurt and mashed vegetables to the surprise of doctors, who said her survival was medically inexplicable. Hundreds of thousands of other survivors hoped for a breakthrough of another kind — the delivery of badly needed food aid. Key players in the Haiti earthquake relief effort, in what may prove to be a pivotal meeting Wednesday, decided to better coordinate by dividing up the shattered capital, giving each responsibility for handing out food in certain areas. Food distribution thus far has often been marked by poor coordination, vast gaps in coverage, and desperate, unruly lines of needy people in which young men at times shoved aside the women and weak and took their food. "These things should be done in a systematic way, not a random way," Dr. Eddy Delalue, who runs a Haitian relief group, Operation Hope, said Wednesday of the emergency food program. "It's survival of the fittest: The strongest guy gets it." Wednesday's rescue of teenager Darlene Etienne from a collapsed home near St. Gerard University, 15 days after Haiti's great quake killed an estimated 200,000 people, was the first such recovery since Saturday, when French rescuers extricated a man from the ruins of a hotel grocery store. Etienne is stable, drinking water and eating yogurt and mashed vegetables, said Dr. Evelyne Lambert, who has been treating the girl on the French Navy hospital ship Sirocco, anchored off the shore of Port-au-Prince. Lambert said that Etienne has a 90 percent chance of survival. "We cannot really explain this because that's just (against) biological facts," Lambert told a news conference. "We are very surprised by the fact that she's alive. ... She's saying that she has been under the ground since the very beginning on the 12th of January so it may have really happened — but we cannot explain that." CAN I TELL YOU SOMETHING? GOD CAN DO WHAT MAN SAYS CANNOT BE DONE! GOD DOES THE IMPOSSIBLE!!!

BABY FOUND ALIVE IN THE HAITI RUBBLE! Just when people started giving up hope, a miracle happened! After 68 long cold hours trapped in the rubble, a babby is found alive!! Rescuers pulled a three-week-old baby girl alive from the rubble of a house more than a week after it was destroyed in Haiti's devastating earthquake, French radio reported on Wednesday. French rescuers found tiny Elisabeth on Tuesday in a hollow beneath the ruins of the house in Jacmel, a town in the south of the island, after spending five hours trying the get through to her, France Inter station said. The baby's uncle told the station that the girl, named Elisabeth, was 23 days old. "The mother had told rescuers that she had been unable to save her daughter when the quake hit," said Philippe Besson, head of the organization Emergency Firefighters' International. The station reported she was in healthy condition and

PURPOSE! By “The New One Zero”


am Chance Cole McBay, AKA “The New One Zero”. I am a born-again Christian but before my life was converted I was deep into the darkness. I started getting into trouble around the age of thirteen. I was in a gang and was very active with what gangstaz do. (fighting, shooting, willing to die over a color, etc.) I was also into satanic worship. Actually, I was very deep into satanic worship. I was sacrificing animals, drinking mine and my friend’s blood, and the scariest part of it was - invoking the devil himself. The reason I say that was the scariest part of it is because of how real it was and the things I saw which were usually demons. One of the times I did it alone in my room. I felt, at first, that it wasn’t working, because I was alone so I went and laid down in my bed. I was watching the ceiling fan spin and I suddenly felt a presence in the room with me. I raised up and looked over toward a chair I had in my room and that’s when I saw it! It was the biggest figure I had ever seen and it wasn’t like a human. It was a pitch black shadow figure with no features except size and those evil, evil, evil, blood red eyes. I had always thought I would feel power when I met the devil, and I was so wrong. An overwhelming feeling of fear and sheer terror came over my body and mind and I could not move any part of me including my eyes. They were stuck on it. Then all of a sudden it charged me and began attacking me. I was trying so hard to scream but nothing would come out. When it got very close to me and was looking me directly in my eyes and all of a sudden it vanished. The reason I went into detail about that situation is because I believe that it was the devil himself, literally. I also believe that at that moment I opened a door to my soul that led to my life’s destruction because it gave him complete control over my thoughts, actions, and feelings. I was put in juvenile 14 times. (misdemeanors and felony convictions) I was then sent to Wilderness Camp for one year after the courts got tired of dealing with me and seeing my face. Once I was released from the camp, I tried hard to live a Christian life. (The camp forced fed Christianity which made me become more distant and despise it even more.) In my mind I convinced myself that I had no belief in God, Jesus or Satan because that was the only way I could somewhat erase the invoking situation from my mind. I became what you would call and atheist. I began dealing drugs and using drugs all through out my teen years but when I became an adult I got really deep into that life and left the gangbanging alone. I caught multiple felony counts for resale of drugs and was convicted on a lot of them. I was convicted of multiple misdemeanors for the same thing. At age 24 I became fully addicted to opiates, which I started using at age 14, and could not quit. One of the worst things in my life happened. I was selling out of the house where my children’s mother, my daughter and I lived. An informant was coming into my house and making purchases, then one night I was reading my daughter a book and the door got kicked in and I was swarmed with cops. I wouldn’t tell this story except for the fact that it haunts me because I saw the fear in my daughter’s face as they aimed guns at me and my daughter and threw her daddy on the ground. Things like that happened a lot and I never got the point. I also was obsessed with suicide and death. Throughout my life I have made 7 suicide attempts and I self-mutilated while I was depressed. I was kept alive through these attempts by miracles. (God kept me alive.) I will give you an example.

At the age of 20 I lived in an apartment with my especially, the 12 gauge I kept on the top shelf of my closet. One day I got it down ready to commit suicide and placed it in my mouth. I pulled the trigger with no hesitation and I heard a click. I cocked it back and pulled the trigger again, nothing happened. I did it again and the same thing, click. I realized something wasn’t right so I took the gun out of my mouth and then I moved the weapon away. Another miracle that is mind-blowing was when someone else made an attempt at my life. I was at a club with a bunch of my friends at the time and me and one other guy went outside to the parking lot. We were talking to these girls we knew and another group of guys got heated about it so a huge fight broke out. During the fight the other guys pulled out guns, which didn’t scare me in the least because I wanted to die. I continued fighting. At one moment I was running toward a guy to swing on him and another guy stepped in front of me. He put a revolver to my head. I could feel the metal pressed against my forehead and he pulled the trigger. I heard a loud bang and saw a flash but that’s all that happened. Nothing came out. Anyone that knows anything about guns knows that revolvers literally never ever jam. I now realize that God intervened and removed the shells from my shotgun and stopped the bullet from leaving the barrel of that revolver to keep me alive because it was not my time. All 7 of my suicide attempts and 3 other attempts on my life have similar stories but these are the wildest ones. They are all true. I started writing poetry at the age of 10 and I have still never stopped. I started turning the poems into lyrics at 13-14 and continued doing that because I realized that is the area in which I had the most talent. I have recorded hundreds of songs and of course I was writing about what I was living so the songs were very negative, full of death, drugs, suicide and blasphemy towards God. I said he did not exist and talked of executing Christians. On a lot of my tracks I would actually say I was god. My mother always told me that I should change my life and music and I always laughed it off but she never gave up. I also had 5 surgeries on my stomach in a one year span, two in which I died and was brought back. I did survive all of that by God’s grace and He kept me alive while I talked about how fake and phony He was. (Boy was I wrong.) I have lot of stories of situations where I should have been dead but miracles kept me alive so I am here for a real reason and that is to glorify the Lord through my music and to get to kids before they follow the path I did and to help people get away from the bondage of evil because if I was saved and forgiven, then it is true that no life is irretrievable. So my whole reason for doing what I am doing is not for fame or money, it is to retrieve souls from the enemy so those souls can inherit the glorious kingdom of God. Remember: Sinners make the best saints. The influence for what I do now is from God, Jesus, The Holy Bible, and no longer the life I was living while the enemy had control of me. My influence is from my hero, the only hero, Jesus Christ, the one that was spit on, beaten, tortured and crucified for us, for mere humans because God so love the world. Do you understand?



My name is Tom Jackson. I’m one of the founders of Flamethrower Ministries Inc. At the age of 12 I started smoking weed and getting drunk. That progressed over the next 12 years into a major addiction to marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy, liquor, pills and every other thing that comes with the partying lifestyle. I became a drug dealer in high school and sold dope (weed, powder, pills, acid, and whatever I could) for 9 years. Then one day after a long vacation from church life, I visited one more time and the Spirit of God convicted me. I knew my life was a mess and worthless. So I repented and accepted Jesus and his forgiveness. I literally felt a physical weight come off of my chest and I was instantly delivered from all my addictions; praise God! I know I was delivered because when I got home there was weed waiting on me with my friend. I turned it down and haven’t gone back in over 6 years, glory to God! Flamethrower ministries is a ministry that is geared for teenagers and young adults. God gave me a vision on a tractor one day to go to McRae, GA. and get a building downtown and start having youth services full of video, drama, dance and powerful anointed worship and word every Friday night. God gave me specifics on how to operate and run this ministry, and said, "This is how you win the city!" The mission statement of Flamethrower ministries is to launch a Christian counter attack and rescue a generation from its own destruction by raising up Christ like leaders that will not compromise the infallible word of God! In January we started our Christian counter attack and saw 120 salvations on the streets and in meetings! We have seen miracle healings of asthma and back pain from car accidents, drive by salvations and so much more! We now have a building in downtown McRae Ga. right next to Video City, across from the rail road tracks! It is painted black and red inside and out. We have ping pong, air hockey, pool table and video games that are free to play. And we have live worship every Friday night! Come experience God with us! Get ready for God to shake the city of McRae in Jesus' name! There has been thousands of people who come through the doors of the Hot House. We have seen 312 decisions for Jesus this year alone! And we have seen many baptized with the Holy Ghost and fire. We have taught teenagers and adults to win souls and to pray for the sick and we have seen salvations in gas stations, nursing homes, in the street, at crack houses, in fast food drive through windows, schools, buses, parking lots and grocery stores, as well as churches. We have done "drive by salvations", which is driving down the street and when we see someone, we stop and unload out of the vehicle and go up to strangers and lead them to Jesus! Halleluiah! We have also seen many miracles of healings and outpourings of God's joy in people's hearts! Just this year alone we’ve seen leg bones grow in front of more than 20 witnesses at China Hill Christian church where the Hot House band led worship that night. The Hot House band is our worship team that the Lord has put

together. It is a group of teens and young adults from several different churches that have come together as one and minister together beautifully. We have seen gout pain leave instantly; legs healed where a woman said she was about to go to the hospital because of the pain, and then teenage girls prayed for her and the pain left instantly and she put her cane down and was happy and healed! Also a woman with back pain from a car accident that was completely healed by the power of God in a grocery store with a buggy full of groceries. She later sent a letter to testify about the healing in her life. We are youth pastors and youth workers who have been called by God to minister and reach out to the teenagers. We are involved strongly with FCA in 2 counties and use that as a platform to reach the teens in our communities. We have 4 different young fiery preachers who are filled with the Holy Spirit and power and who do not compromise the word of God! We also have a dance team and drama team and are affiliated with a couple of powerful and passionate worship bands. Our messages are all about self-denial and complete surrender to Jesus and his plan for our life. We come from all walks of life: From drug addictions, drug dealers, to complacent Christianity. Now we are all dead to ourselves and have given Jesus everything! We are available and nothing would please us more than to come to your town or youth ministry or church and set the whole place on fire for God! Hebrews 1:7 "who makes his angels spirits and his ministers a flame of fire." The Hot House band has also been invited to minister in several churches in the McRae area. They ministered at the House of Prayer, Soul Cross Ministries, China Hill Christian church, and led worship at McRae 1st Baptist church during a community youth revival. It is amazing to see God work in the lives of these young people. They are beginning to fast and pray and see miracles in the lives of their families and friends. All of this is because of your giving and obedience to the Lord's work. We all wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your obedience and support. We were also able to give away school supplies to the middle and high school kids of the city. and we also allow the Hot House to be used for Hispanic ministry on Sundays at 4pm. That way we are able to reach the Hispanic community and give school supplies to their children as well. Some of the salvations recorded are from this outreach. So once again thank you all so much we love you and are praying for you. sincerely yours Tom Jackson. 229-332-0204

A MISSING 11-YEAR-OLD GIRL FOUND IN A FLORIDA SWAMP King climbed a tree and unfurled toilet paper in an attempt to draw attention to where they were. Brunelle said he dispatched a helicopter to look for King and Nadia, but it didn't work. Using cell phone signals, authorities found King and Nadia. "Mr. King is a hero right now," said Brunelle. "He led us to her."


missing 11-year-old central Florida girl with Asperger syndrome was found alive on Tuesday, four days after she disappeared into an alligator-infested swamp a half-mile from her home. Nadia Bloom was taken to South Seminole Hospital in nearby Longwood, Fla., where she will be evaluated and treated for dehydration and insect bites, said Winter Springs Police Chief Kevin Brunelle. "If I never believed in miracles, I sure do now," Brunelle said during an afternoon news conference. Brunelle said Nadia told rescuers two things: "I'm glad you guys found me" and "I can't believe you guys rescued me." There were many people who have been praying for her during the time she was missing. The conditions out there in the woods were so dangerous there that the police told people not to go close to the wooded area by the swamp because of all the snakes, and also with all of the alligators there. The brush was so thick that the sheriff said you could barley see someone if they were standing in front of you. That’s what makes this story so miraculous! A little girl missing for 4 days without food or water being found alive and well with only insect bites?! To God be the glory! Nadia’s sister said that Bloom, who has an autism-related disorder called Asperger syndrome, may have gone into the dense woods hoping to make a nature video. According to reports, Nadia may have been inspired by a children's book about a young girl who dreams of becoming an explorer. In the book, a little girl sets off to find Adventure. Still it is unclear just how Bloom, who suffers from ADD, anxiety and autism, lost herself in the Florida swamp. It took nearly two hours for rescuers to carry Nadia out of the thick brush and swamp. It wasn't police who located her. James King, who goes to church with Nadia's family, found her Tuesday morning in a dry patch in the middle of the swamp and called authorities. "Hey, I've got her," King said, in the 911 call. "I've got Nadia." King said the girl had bug bites yet "no major injuries, just exposure." King added: "The Lord told me where to find her." A Winter Springs dispatcher asked to speak with Nadia. "Hi," Nadia's little and weak voice said. "This is Nadia and I'm the girl that got lost." When King found her, he gave her a nutritional shake, an apple and some water. During the 911 call, King asked Nadia if he could take her photo, "so you can show how God protected you." "Sure!" Nadia replied.

Brunelle added that detectives are questioning both King and Nadia for more details on the rescue and how the little girl spent her time while she was missing. Brunelle did say that Nadia told them that she had not talked to anyone since going into the woods on Friday. Authorities began searching for Nadia in wooded areas near Lake Jesup, one of the most alligator-filled lakes in Central Florida. The fifth-grader was last seen riding her bike on Friday, and authorities became alarmed when they found her bike and helmet. She did have a backpack with her. Shortly after word came that Nadia was alive, her father briefly spoke to the media. "It all came so fast and it just shows the compassion of the human spirit. It should give everybody encouragement," her father, Jeff Bloom, told reporters after rescue crews lifted her into an ambulance. When asked how he felt, Bloom said: "I can't even describe it. Let's give the glory to God." Later in the afternoon, the medical director at the hospital in Longwood spoke to reporters. "She's smiling. Her vital (signs) are stable. She has some abrasions and bites. She is dehydrated and receiving (intravenous) fluids and wound care," said Dr. Rakish Parekh "She is doing remarkably well." Nadia's discovery was a welcome - and rare - event in a state that has been plagued with missing children. Brunelle said Nadia told rescuers two things: "I'm glad you guys found me" and "I can't believe you guys rescued me."

Do You Need Worship Flags For Your Church?


Signs and Visions FromGod! By Richard Fischer

John chapter 6 verse 9 states, "There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two small fish, but what are they among so many?" Little did I know when the Lord led me to this verse in late October of 2009, what was about to happen in the lives of my wife and I. In reality, the actual story, at least for me, begins back in August of the same year, but I will save that for later. For now, on to the events of October 28th and following. That morning started quite differently then most for me, when I woke up at 5:29am out of a sound sleep, praying very earnestly the words, "Lord, multiply BJ's insulin (My wife's name is Brenda Jean, but she goes by BJ), or heal her so she can make her own again." As I began praying about this rather unusual wake up call from the Lord, (I think I must had been dreaming the prayer just before I woke up, I was reminded of the account in John 6 concerning the miraculous multiplication of the five barley loaves and two fish into enough food to feed the 5000 gathered to hear Jesus teach that day, with 12 baskets left over, one for each of the twelve Apostles. Given that my wife has been diabetic for many years now, and that we couldn't afford to buy her insulin, or for that matter, any of the other medications she is on for multiple medical conditions she has faced on a daily basis during most of her life, the prayer made total sense, but it was not a prayer I had personally thought to pray. It was just there on my lips in my waking moments that morning. Then, though I didn't make the connection until November, 20th following a discussion with my new supervisor, the Vice President of promotions for Five and Two Pictures, a Christian Film Company started by director Rich Christiano, the understanding began to become clear. Five loaves and Two fish....Five and Two Pictures,....hmmm...I began to wonder, what was the date I was led to that word in John 6, I looked back in my journal when I got home that evening, and not only found that the date was exactly 3 days prior to my receiving the invitation to become a part time agent for Five and Two, but when I was reminded how that verse was given to me through the prayer for my wife, I immediately remembered how just a couple of days ago (as of the writing of this article), while at a doctor's appointment, her doctor had given her 4 free sample bottles of a new insulin he wanted her to try! Though I had totally forgotten about the prayer for the Lord to multiply her insulin until I read my journal entry, God hadn't forgotten to answer! Anyway, this

is just one of many miracles I've personally experienced since I learned about the new Christian film by Five and Two, "The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry." In fact, the first miracle was actually how the Lord led me to Five and Two Pictures and the Jonathan Sperry film in the first place! This story begins back in August of 2009, when I was given a dream involving the actor, Gavin Macleod, who many of us older folks (I'm 50 as I write this) will remember as Captain Merrill Stubbing on the TV series, "The Love Boat," Murray Slaughter from the series, "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," and, "Happy," on the series, McHale's Navy. Though I will at this point spare you all the details of the dream, which are pretty inspiring as well, since Gavin's countenance and manner in the dream reminded me of, "The Ancient of Days," I began searching the internet to see what Gavin was up to these days. I learned that in September of 1984, Gavin had committed his life to Jesus Christ, and with that commitment, was a promise to the Lord to never play any role that would compromise his new faith. As a result, he didn't work for about a year, but eventually, he and his wife began a TV show on Christian marriage on one of the major Christian television Networks. He also met Rich Christiano, and began playing roles in his Christian films. After a little more research, I learned that his newest film, "The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry," was scheduled to be released on September 18, 2009 (about a month after I learned about the film), and after watching the promo video on the movie's web site, I just knew I had to see the film. There is so much more to this story...such as dreams I was given the morning of September 18th that found fulfillment in the movie when I saw it later that afternoon. These outreach showings are done with the When you call, please feel free to ask me for more details about my miraculous encounters with this film, and I'd be delighted to share them with you! In the mean time, and much more importantly, though it's not been through anything that I have done, rejoice with me that as November 21, 2009, we've received more then 500 reports of souls being saved through this anointed and inspiring film! Until I hear from you, may God richly bless you, your family, and all those you care about! Blessings in our Messiah! Richard W.

Do you want to join God’s family? If you don’t know how to approach God in prayer, here is a short prayer, but you must mean this with all your heart. God knows if you mean it or not. Father God, I believe you sent your Son Jesus who died for my sins and on the third day he rose again. Please forgive me God for all the sins I’ve committed. I’m sorry for my past mistakes. I accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior. God fill me with your Holy Spirit, please come into my life and change me inside and out. Father, I surrender all to you -- my life, my ways, my flesh, and my will. God, I want to be used by you. I can’t do anything on my own. Please lead me the way you want me to go. I love you and thank you for loving me and forgiving me. In Jesus name I pray, Amen. Now you are indeed a child of God and you are coheirs with Jesus because God has written your name in the book of life. You have not only given your life to God, you also surrendered your will to him. You will see a big change in your life. God will help you in all areas of your life, small and big. The bad habits you see that you don’t like, you will see them fall off of you. They were so hard to break when you were by yourself and when you were trying to do it with your own strength. Ephesians 6:10 “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.” Since you have now surrendered your whole life over to God, it will be a lot easier. You gave God authority over your will. Ask the father to send his comforter to come into your life. John 14:26 “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” Luke 11:13 “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?” The Holy Spirit will help you. Luke 12:12 “For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.” He will help you to learn more about God. He will guide you and give you understanding of God’s word. You will receive power. Let God use you in his plan,

the purpose you were really designed for. You will have peace, and you will have joy. God will never leave you nor forsake you. God will make himself known to his children.

Meditate On The W or d Of God: s c r ip t u r e s t ak e n f r o m t h e KJV

John 3:16-18 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 1 John 1:3-10 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. 4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. 5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. John 3:9-10 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (Romans 10:9-13) That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

THE A RM OU RBEA RER (IN Book stores March 2010) GET IT FIRST! SIGN UP TO PRE-ORDER NOW!! Every since the beginning of time, kings have used armourbearers to go before them to carry their armour. Kings back then were fighting in the war themselves unlike today’s armies. The Armourbearer book was given to me through the guidance of the Holy Spirit of God early one morning. I was not to eat until the book was done. God was showing me that what is going on today is no different than what went on in times past. God wants His people to understand what the true meaning is behind The Armourbearer.

I pray that this book helps you draw closer to God like never before. Let God fill you with His peace, wisdom, knowledge and understanding as you read what the Holy Spirit has put in my hands. God bless you! Buy online at: WWW.SHOUTLIFE.COM/ARMOURBEARERBOOK
