Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! for sending me the new book “Bonhoeffer, Pastor, Prophet, Martyr, Spy” by Eric Metaxas ((c) 2010- Thomas Nelson). WOW! I couldn’t put it down!!
Over the years I have read LOTS about Pastor Bonhoeffer and his lonely 11 yr stand against Adolf Hitler.
As I read the book I could see many hundreds of parallels between the way Hitler co-opted, coerced, deceived, threatened, infiltrated and bullied the German Churches into accepting and then assisting him in his maniacal grab for power. The soon coming anti-Christ will follow the same pattern to dupe the sleeping believers today. I pray there are still some Bonhoeffers alive to resist!
Every pastor, church leader, parent and concerned believer needs to read this book!!! They need to imagine the same thing happening again soon (only much worse!) and think about what decisions they will make. Hitler’s “Third Reich” was just the trial run for the coming New World Order. Jesus warned His disciples that the end times would be “great tribulation such as was not since the begging of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” Mt. 24:21
See how Bonhoeffer handled the “anti-Christ” of his day, meditate on it carefully and pray for wisdom!!!
The very near future will be a great time to win crowns!! Rev. 2:10.
As much as I hate this time in prison away from my ministry and loved ones I LOVE the free time to read books like this that will change me for eternity. This book is on my MUST READ list for anyone with “ears to hear.”
My special thanks to you, Brian and the boys for all your visits, prayers and junk food from the vending machines during my three years in Edgefield. God has a special reward for you all! See Mt. 25:34-46.
More Writs going in soon to the Supreme Court. One will work. Meanwhile, God has been so-o-o-o-o good to give me this precious prison time to read, pray, meditate and study. BIG changes are coming soon to planet earth and we need to warn anyone who will listen. Please pray Acts 12:5 style for my soon release.
