It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War
in Europe ended, during which six million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10
million Christians, and 1,900 Catholic priests were murdered, massacred,
raped, burned, starved, and humiliated with the German and Russian peoples
— and most of the "Church" around the world — looking the other way! Now,
more than ever, with Iraq, Iran, and others, claiming the Holocaust to be
"a myth," — and an anti-Israel, anti-Semitic, and anti-Messiah Muslim
President (whom I believe may be THE Anti-Messiah) in the White
House — it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets. As America
found out on September 11, 2001, there are others who would like to do it
all over again!
Those who cannot learn from history are
doomed to repeat it.
— George Santayana
What experience and history teach is
this -- that people and governments never have learned anything from
history, or acted on principles.
— George Wilhelm Hegel
The only thing
necessary for evil to triumph is for
good men to do nothing!
Bible says, “For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the
children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of
those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who
love me and keep my commandments.” (Ex 20:5-6)
Lord, I hear the cries of 6 million of your people. Men, women, children –
murdered, annihilated in the Holocaust and burnt. We confess these
atrocities as sin and humble ourselves before you in shame. You have heard
our plea and our repentance has come before your ears.
Lord, I see black smoke. It rises up and spreads out like a veil of
darkness over our nations again! This dark veil is the sin of our silence!
Just as we Germans have remained silent, the peoples and nations are
silent once again. Again, your people Israel is hated, despised and
rejected – and yet we remain silent – even in the church. We are silent –
concerning the sin of our fathers. We remain silent – and behold – the
black smoke is covering us again.
From the land of unmerited grace, we are calling out – Nations arise! For
Zion’s sake, open your mouth! Never again – slander, hatred or death!
Israel – we will never forsake you again! You are our inheritance, our
love, the blessing for all nations! Listen! Receive the word! It will
pervade your spirit. No more silence! Never again! Never again! Never

The Wedding Gown That Made History
doesn't remember the last name of the woman who designed and sewed the
wedding gown she wore when she walked down the aisle over 60 years ago.
But the grandmother of seven does recall that when she first told her
fiancé Ludwig that she had always dreamed of being married in a white gown
he realized he had his work cut out for him.
