Carl Gallups: Jews Coming To Yeshua (Jesus) At Wailing Wall, ‘There Is No Doubt That We Are Living In Prophetic Times’

04/14/2014 4 comments

The fullness of the Gentiles approaches …

Romans 11:11, 25-26, “I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation [has come] to the Gentiles… For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: ‘The Deliverer will come out of Zion, And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob’”

Isaiah 62:11, “Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy YESHU’AH cometh; behold, HIS reward [is] with HIM, and his work before him.”

Revelation 22:12, “And behold, I [YESHUA] am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.”

Carl Gallups: Jews Are Coming To Jesus (Yeshua) In Israel

03/13/2014 7 comments

When we dig enough throughout Scripture the treasures we find make one thing abundantly clear: Christianity is Judaism fulfilled in the work of a Messiah whom the prophets longed for all throughout the Old Testament. The entire Bible is Jewish and it is Gentiles who are brought into fulfilled Judaism — not the other way around — by being grafted into a Jewish paradigm, into one Olive Tree, not into a Gentile paradigm or a separate “tree.” The Messiah of the Jews is also the Messiah of “whosoever believes.” Because of this, we — as Gentiles believers — are adopted into the family of God through Him, built together with believing Israel as one Body in the Spirit. As I have often repeated, at the end of the day we should therefore not simply view believing Jews as being a part of the Church because they believe in Jesus, but rather it is we as Gentiles who are now a part of the Church because we believe in Yeshua …

Isaiah 62:11, “Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy YESHU’AH cometh; behold, HIS reward [is] with HIM, and his work before him.”

Revelation 22:12, “And behold, I [YESHUA] am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.”

1 Corinthians 10:1-4, “Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ [Messiah].”

Acts 7:38, “This is he [Moses], that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us …”

Hebrews 4:2a, “For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them …”

Imam Embraces Christ: ‘I Started Reading The Bible, And Upon Its Completion I Was Absolutely Convinced’ That Christianity Was True

11/19/2013 7 comments

Faith comes by hearing, and hearing the Word of God. If one earnestly seeks to know Truth, then Truth can set free even those who have been bound and held captive by the shackles of Islam. May the Author and the Finisher of our faith, He who is faithful to complete it in all who seek Him, continue moving in the hearts and minds of those who yearn for His Salvation …

1 Corinthians 1:18, “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”

Romans 10:9, “… if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved”

Pravoslavie – “The Linga portal with the reference to the Spanish radio station Сadena Сope tells about the joys and tragedies of a young man who turned to Christianity from Islam.

Mario Joseph was born in an ordinary Muslim Indian family. His father prepared him—the third among six brothers—as a spiritual leader: thus, aged 10, Mario entered a Koranic school, and when he returned from it at the age of 18, he became an Imam-khatib in a local village Mosque.

However, the young man turned to Christ, and this choice made him a target even for his own father who, having known about his son’s conversion to another faith, threatened to kill him. Moreover, his father erected a gravestone in advance in a local Muslim cemetery with the epitaph containing the young man’s name and date of birth.

The Spanish radio station Сadena Сope managed to talk with this young Catholic preacher and learn certain facts from the history of his tremendous trials.

‘From age 18, I was an imam and regularly delivered sermons,’ begins Joseph. ‘One Friday I was fervently talking about Isa al-Masih [Jesus the Messiah], saying that He was not Allah. When I finished my speech, someone asked me: ‘But, after all, who is the Messiah?’ On that day I could not find a proper answer; my knowledge in this sphere was extremely poor’.

Again and again Mario returned to the Koran, to the Muslim Holy Tradition (the Sunna), to various commentaries of the exegetes of authority, but could not find the answer. To the contrary, he noticed instead that the only woman’s name mentioned in the Koran, was the Name of the Most Holy Mary; moreover, according to tradition Muhammad died, while Isa was taken to Heaven alive. ‘Then, after long thought, I decided to leave the dead one and to follow the Living one,’ explained the young man.

According to Mario, the choice was not an easy one: ‘Before making the final decision, I besought the Lord for a long time to give me true guidance… Once, still hesitating, I Read more…

Tunisia: Muslim Man Converts To Christianity, ‘In The Days That Followed I Lost My Entire Family’

11/13/2013 4 comments

Matthew 16:24, 26-27,  “Then Jesus said to His disciples, ‘If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me… For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?… For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.”

Matthew 24:29,Immediately after the tribulation of those days … they will see the Son of Man comingwith power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect …”

Colossians 3:12, “Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering …”

Tunisians du Monde via Islam verses Europe (Translation) – “My wife filed for divorce the day she discovered the Bible that I hid under the mattress. The news of my conversion then spread like wildfire. The youngest of my daughters has suffered psychologically because in school she was a regular target of ridicule as the daughter of the ‘kuffar.’

In the days that followed, I lost my entire family including, very painfully, the affection of my mother who now swore by my other brother, a ‘professing Muslim’ but an alcoholic.

My divorce was finalized in less than three months and I was ordered to pay my ex-wife a monthly pension equivalent to 400% of my income at the time.

My family and my country had left me! I then proceeded to go into exile in France.

… [W]hen I was hospitalized in a clinic in Tunis to undergo a major surgery, I had the honor to receive the loving visit of the Bishop of Tunis. As I was a top Tunisian official, my minister-in-charge was immediately informed of the visit and the consequences quickly followed.

Around me, all the medical staff fell in turmoil and I suddenly become the pariah that had to be removed quickly. Three days later, I was asked to leave even though I was not fully recovered from my rather heavy operation. The weeks that followed confirmed my professional career was done.

In the end, I ended up resigning and sank into a deep depression… [But] Never [have I ever considered turning back]… My faith was stronger than these daily obstacles…” Read more.

Flashback: Tunisian Christians Continue In The Faith Of Jesus Amid Death Threats, ‘Do You Know That It Is Not Forbidden [In Islam] To Kill You?’ – “Some 1,500 devoted Tunisian Christian, most of them former Muslims, worship in church buildings or in house churches despite death threats and growing influence of Islamic extremists… Open Doors, which supports ‘persecuted Christians’ worldwide, mentioned a man identified only as Steve who was allegedly threatened by Islamists. ‘They said to me: ‘Do you know that it is not forbidden to kill you?’ But I didn’t really feel afraid,’ Steve was quoted as saying. ‘I could answer them: ‘Yes I know you can do that [you can kill me]‘. They responded that I was crazy saying that. I said to them: ‘Yes, I am crazy for Jesus’.’” Read more.

Sudan: Muslim Man Converts To Christianity, Relatives Burn Down His House

11/13/2013 6 comments

For peaceful purposes …

Luke 21:16, “You will be betrayed even by parents and brothers, relatives and friends; and they will put some of you to death. And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake.”

Christian Post – “In Sudan the atmosphere for Christians is becoming increasingly dangerous. Since the secession of South Sudan, the government in Khartoum has made it clear that the country is a Muslim state that will be governed by strict Islamic law (Sharia). The government of President Oman Hassan al-Bashir has made it clear that there is no room for Christians. However, contrary to the desire of the government and society at large, there are Christians in Sudan who are holding on to Christ at great cost.

Moses (not his real name), 31, was born to a successful Muslim businessman in Sudan. As a young man, he helped his father run the business. Sadly, the father died when he was 16 years old. Moses’ mother remarried after a short time. An uncle took in the young Moses. But he was not an honest man. He grabbed all of Moses’ father’s property. When Moses protested, the uncle sent him to a state-run school for ‘problematic’ young people. Moses faced disciplining and Islamic instruction. He endured regular beatings and hard labor. After some time Moses escaped. He found refuge for a few years in a separate town where he made ends meet by doing menial jobs. Then he returned to Khartoum to live with his brother. But that did not last. When Moses and his brother had a disagreement about their late father’s property, Moses moved out.

One day in 2011, Moses walked past a church and noticed the cross. He unexpectedly felt ‘something stirring in him.’ He entered the building on an impulse and was met by a church elder. They had a brief discussion about the Christian faith. This one conversation led to a number of follow-up meetings. After two years of discussion, Moses accepted Christ. The regular discussions turned into discipleship sessions.

Soon after this, Moses married a Muslim woman, Aida. She regularly joined Moses for church services at the local church and Moses sincerely hoped she would follow him to Christ. But it did not happen. At first, the couple did not tell any of their families about Moses’ Christian faith. They thought it best to keep it a secret. But in April, Aida told her mother. Aida’s mother was furious. She spread the word. When she told her sons, they immediately went to Moses’ house and burned it to the ground. Moses lost everything in the fire …” Read more.

Report: Criminal Terror Charges Filed Against Barack Hussein Obama

11/12/2013 4 comments

If true, I guess this means Obama has officially lost Egypt. Unfortunately, while the Egyptians move to charge Obama with “crimes against humanity” for his support of the murderous Muslim Brotherhood, he still continues his reign of terror over the citizens of the United States of America …

By Jerome R. Corsi, WND – “Several prominent media sources in Egypt are now reporting that Egyptian lawyers have filed criminal terrorism charges in the International Criminal Court against President Obama in addition to the criminal terrorism charges previously filed in Egyptian courts against the president’s half-brother Malik Obama.

Malik Obama is quickly becoming a person of interest in Egypt for his alleged management of funds for a terrorist organization based in neighboring Sudan. A group of Egyptian lawyers, meanwhile have charged President Obama with crimes against humanity for his support of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

The charges come as the criminal trial against former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi is scheduled to begin in Egypt in January 2014. Morsi facing charges that he supported the Muslim Brotherhood in acts of violence directed against the Egyptian people.

President Obama is likely to be a subject in Morsi’s criminal trial because of evidence the Obama administration used the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to provide direct financial support to key Muslim Brotherhood political operatives, with the full knowledge and complicity of the Morsi government, as WND was first to report in August.

Criminal complaints filed at ICC

The Egyptian newspaper El Watan has reported a group of Egyptian lawyers has submitted a complaint to the International Criminal Court in The Hague, charging Obama with backing the group that incited widespread violence in Egypt both before and after what is known in Egypt as the ‘June 30 Revolution.’ The Egyptian army coup d’état removed Morsi from the presidency July 3.

As first reported by CBN News, the complaint names several top-ranking Muslim Brotherhood leaders, beginning with the head of the organization, Muhammad Badie, as well as Mohamed al-Beltagy, Essam al-Erian and Safwat Hegazi.

The complaint charges that Obama coordinated, incited and assisted the armed elements of the Muslim Brotherhood in the commission of crimes against humanity in the period from March 7 through Aug. 18 in Egypt.” Read more.

Flashback: Egyptian Activist To Obama: Leave Us Alone, The Terrorists You Support Are The Ones Asking Allah To Destroy The United States – “Dear Mr. Obama, I’m talking to you today on behalf of a lot of Egyptians who wants to deliver a message … leave us alone. All the families in Egypt want to tell you this message: leave Egypt alone, please Mr. Obama. And stop supporting the terrorists … the people who are in their prayers asking [Allah] to destroy [the] United States. Yes, these are the people that Mr. Obama is supporting. Mr. Obama, face the facts …” Watch video.

Flashback: Egyptians Sign Petition Asking Obama To Designate His Muslim Brotherhood Friends As ‘Terrorists’ – “A WhiteHouse.gov petition asking President Obama to declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization will far exceed the minimum number of signatures required to prompt an official response when it closes Tuesday. The catch? Many of the 174,000-plus signatures appear to come from Egyptians, not Americans.” Read more.

Video: Walid Shoebat On Bible Prophecy And The Islamic Antichrist

10/29/2013 8 comments

Here is a good video of Walid Shoebat, particularly for those who haven’t yet been introduced to Bible prophecy from the perspective of an Islamic end-times paradigm …

1 Thessalonians 5:19-21, “Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good.”

Jerry McGlothlin, CleanTV President: “Hi, I’m Jerry McGlothlin, President of CleanTV. Our presenter, Walid Shoebat, is going to talk to you about the Bible, prophecy, things in a different way than you’ve ever heard them before. We’ve heard of people like Tim Lahaye and the Left Behind series and you tend to wonder, ‘How can 50 million copies of these books have been sold?’ … The interesting thing is most things in life don’t have 100% of truth with them, and a lot of these things we’ve heard before about the rapture, the tribulation, etc., there’s a lot of truth in it. But I challenge you to listen to what you’re about to hear and see if you’ve ever heard truth like this before. This fills in the gaps. I don’t know about you, but when I’ve heard about prophecy before in the past something was missing. And I think you’re [about] to see it right now. Walid Shoebat connects the dots. From an ancient biblical perspective he takes the old, the prophecies of old, the major beliefs of our fathers of faith and connects them with the current days … Listen and watch, and prayerfully consider if what you’re about to see and hear is true … ”

Intervention: Secretary Of The Army Halts Training Program That Labeled Christians As Extremists

10/24/2013 4 comments

Sometimes direct intervention is needed. But as long as Barack Hussein Obama is the Commander-in-Chief there’s no guarantee the military will stay clean  …

Army Sec. John McHugh (Right)

Army Sec. John McHugh (Right)

By Todd Starnes, Fox News – “The Secretary of the Army has ordered military leaders to halt all briefings on extremist organizations that labeled Evangelical Christian groups as domestic hate groups. The shutdown comes just four days after I reported exclusively about a briefing at Mississippi’s Camp Shelby that labeled the American Family Association as a domestic hate group.

‘On several occasions over the past few months, media accounts have highlighted instances of Army instructors supplementing programs of instruction and including information or material that is inaccurate, objectionable and otherwise inconsistent with current Army policy,’ Army Sec. John McHugh wrote to military leaders in a memorandum I obtained.

McHugh ‘directed that Army leaders cease all briefings, command presentations or training on the subject of extremist organizations or activities until that program of instruction and training has been created and disseminated,’ Army spokesman Col. David Patterson, Jr., tells me.

The Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty welcomed the news and said it was about time the Secretary of the Army intervened.

‘Men and women of faith – who have served the Army faithfully for centuries – have been likened to those who regularly threaten the peace and security of the United States,’ said Ron Crews, executive director of the Chaplain Alliance. ‘It is dishonorable for any U.S. military entity to allow this type of improper characterization.’

The Camp Shelby incident led five congressmen to fire off a letter to the Pentagon expressing their grave concerns.

‘This most recent mislabeling of a Christian organization reflects what appears to be a troubling trend of religious intolerance in the military,’ Rep. Doug Lamborn wrote in a letter signed by Reps. Tim Huelskamp, Steve Scalise, John Fleming and Joseph Pitts. ‘We are very troubled.’

The Army issued a statement refuting the claims made and photographed in the briefing after it was reported in my column.

The Camp Shelby briefing was one of a number of incidents on Army bases around the nation where soldiers were instructed that groups like the American Family Association and Family Research Council should be considered domestic hate groups because of their support for traditional marriage.

Last week soldiers at Fort Hood were warned that participating in or donating money to evangelical Christian groups or Tea Party groups could result in military punishment.” Read more.

Mauritania: God-Given Dreams Are Drawing Muslims To Christ

10/17/2013 4 comments

Even in lands virtually devoid of water many will find the Way to never thirst again …

John 4:14, “… whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

30-Days Prayer Network – “Mauritania, an Islamic republic in North Africa, is a vast desert; constantly hot, dry and very dusty. Its legal system is a combination of Shari’a (Islamic law) and French civil law. Independent from France in 1960, Mauritania has suffered from a succession of military coups and ongoing tribal conflict. A severe drought over the past decades has devastated the country. In 1957, a small fishing town called Nouakchott was chosen to be the capitol of the new country. Now there are more than 600,000 people living here. The capital has become a crossroads for many ethnic groups with nomadic roots.

Miracles Despite the Heat

A Christian who recently visited the country described the general situation of Mauritanian believers. ‘You can have freedom of speech, if you are a Muslim. You can have freedom of religion, if you are a Muslim. It is in fact OK to be a Christian, but it is offensive to speak of Jesus as anything other than one of the prophets.’ In this setting God is doing wonders, despite the guards that sometimes stand at church doors to ensure that Mauritanian citizens don’t enter. God has given dreams to Mauritanians even in remote areas. In the interior of the country, an Imam showed the Jesus Film in a mosque. The Iman later died and the results are unclear, but such seed sowing needs to continue. By God’s grace, there are now Mauritanians following Christ in many countries around the world.

Testimony from Mauritania:

Soon after coming to faith in Christ, Bokar told his Christian friends that he wanted to do away with a special undershirt inscribed with Koranic passages and interwoven with dozens of amulets. Several Mauritanians were afraid and said the shirt could not be destroyed, that if burned, it would jump out of the fire. This type of shirt makes the wearer impervious to any weapon. It is one of the most powerful enchantments known to the Hal-Pulaar (Fulani). After much prayer, Bokar burned his iron shirt, and the result was tremendous spiritual growth in his own life. Many who heard of the incident gained a new respect for the power of the Gospel.” Read more.

Psalm 70:4, “Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; And let those who love Your salvation say continually, ‘Let God be magnified!’”

Flashback: ‘Remarkable’: Dreams And Visions Bringing More Middle East Muslims To Faith In Christ ‘Since The Birth Of Islam’ – “I think that’s one of the most remarkable things happening in the Middle East right now, and the missionaries that I’ve … talked to … say that more Muslims are coming to faith in Jesus Christ than any time since the birth of Islam 1400 years ago. Many of them are coming through dreams and visions, literally, people having dreams of a man in white who calls Himself Jesus and says ‘Follow Me’ …” Read more.

Muslim Convert To Christianity Prays For The Men Stoning Him

10/09/2013 3 comments

Matthew 5:43-46a, “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you?”

Charisma News – “In a country that stresses religious freedom, it is often difficult for Americans to understand what it means to live and die for faith. Global Advance reports about Pastor Ibrahím, a man who knows firsthand the dangers of pursuing God.

Ibrahím lives in a community of radical Muslims. His country, unnamed for security reasons, is one of the ‘-stan’ nations, all of which are Islamic countries in which the persecution of Christians is not uncommon. The region, in general, is charged with violence.

When Ibrahím converted to Christianity, his Muslim friends decided it was necessary to kill him. It was their ‘sacred duty’ to stop the spread of Christianity, and this was the way to do it.

His friends informed him he could say goodbye to his wife before they stoned him. Ibrahím chose to keep the situation from his wife and told her he would be right back. He did not want to risk her life or alarm her.

The friends took the new Christian to the local dump. There they began beating him. One man picked up a large rock to complete the act of murder by hitting Ibrahím in the head. At this, Ibrahím launched aloud into prayer for his abusers and their children.

His prayer was not in vain.

The man holding the rock dropped it and yelled, ‘I Read more…

Second Chance: Muslim Man Has Brain Aneurysm, Converts To Christianity After Waking Up From Coma

10/01/2013 1 comment

Although coming to Christ will sometimes be a process that happens over time for many, the Author and Finisher of our faith will be faithful to complete it in all who seek Him. May the Lord continue to move in the hearts and minds of all those who yearn for His Salvation …

1 Corinthians 1:18, “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”

Hebrews 12:1-2, “Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

By Morgan Lee, Christian Post – “Karim Shamsi-Basha was still a Muslim when a sudden brain aneurysm left him in a coma for almost a month in 1992. After the Syrian-born Shamsi-Basha made an amazing almost-complete recovery, his neurosurgeon, recognizing the rarity of what had occurred, told him that he had ‘seen very few people recover as you did. You have to find out why you survived.’

These would be the words that catalyze an almost 20 year journey that would eventually lead Shamsi-Basha to Jesus Christ.

Shamsi-Basha’s new book, Paul and Me, tells of this quest, and recounts how he spent close to two decades of his life discovering Jesus and learning his purpose, which he now testifies is ‘to share God’s love with people and let them know He loves all his children.’

Released last month, the book intersperses chapters of Shamsi-Basha’s own life and walk with God, with various theologians’ thoughts about Paul, one of the Bible’s most central figures, whose own conversion experience took place in the ancient Syrian city of Damascus.

Shamsi-Basha grew up in a Muslim family in a Syria he says was tolerant of all faiths. Indeed, his best friend was a Christian, the two were frequently at each other’s houses, and had all sorts of discussions and arguments with each other about faith, though no one ever succeeded in converting the other.

While his family practiced Islam culturally, Shamsi-Basha says he was ‘very serious in [his] teenage years.’

‘I prayed five times a day. I walked to the mosque before sunrise. I fasted the month of Ramadan,’ he added.

Tired of the corruption of the first Assad regime, Shamsi-Basha immigrated to the United States at the age of 18 to attend the University of Tennessee. From there he married, had his first son and moved to his current residence of Birmingham, Al. before he was struck by the brain aneurysm.

After his recovery, Shamsi-Basha began reading the Bible, struck by its focus on God’s love and grace, and was baptized in 1996 in what he terms was his ‘near-conversion.’

But, Shamsi-Basha said, it took over 10 more years, and the dissolution of his first marriage, the death of his father, homelessness and another failed relationship, for him to ultimately be at a place to fully accept Christ as his Lord and Savior, a process that is his new book’s focal point.

‘In 2008 I completely surrendered to God,’ he said. ‘Now I can’t get enough.’

Meanwhile, Shamsi-Basha now tells everyone he can that he credits Jesus Christ and the saving grace of God for his conversion. ‘Salvation is of the Lord,’ he firmly emphasized to The Christian Post, adding that God takes ‘credit for my conversion. It was the grace of God that saved me.'” Read more.

Thy Will Be Done: Stunned Crowd Bursts Into Applause After Valedictorian Rips Up Speech, Recites Lord’s Prayer

06/05/2013 5 comments

Psalm 20:7-8, “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.”

By Jessica Chasmar, The Washington Times – “A South Carolina valedictorian garnered wild applause after he ripped up his pre-approved speech and delivered the Lord’s prayer at his high school graduation on Saturday.

The act was apparently in protest of the Pickens County School District’s decision to no longer include prayer at graduation ceremonies, Christian News reported. Officials said the decision was made after the district was barraged with complaints by atheist groups.

But that didn’t stop Roy Costner IV of Liberty High School. He ripped up his graduation speech for all to see, before he started talking about his Christian upbringing, Christian News reported.

‘Those that we look up to, they have helped carve and mold us into the young adults that we are today,’ he said. ‘I’m so glad that both of my parents led me to the Lord at a young age.’

‘And I think most of you will understand when I say…’ he paused. ‘Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name…’

The auditorium began to erupt with applause and cheers.

‘Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil,’ he continued. ‘For Thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.’

Pickens County School District spokesman John Eby said that no disciplinary action will be taken against Mr. Costner.” Read more.
