The Dark Ages

There were at times but very few copies of the Bible in existence. In the different countries of Europe, men were moved by the Spirit of God to search for the truth as for hidden treasure. Providentially guided to the Holy Scriptures, they were willing to accept the light, at any cost to themselves.

A Bible Answer




The Cross, what does it mean?


Answer:   Galatians 3:13


"Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us."


And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Philippians 2:8.

"And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified Him."     "That He might sanctify the people with His own blood," Christ "suffered without the gate." Hebrews 13:12. For transgression of the law of God, Adam and Eve were banished from Eden. Christ, our substitute, was to suffer without the boundaries of Jerusalem. He died outside the gate, where felons and murderers were executed. Full of significance are the words, "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us." Galatians 3:13.  

In the sufferings of Christ upon the cross prophecy was fulfilled. Centuries before the crucifixion, the Saviour had foretold the treatment He was to receive. He said, "Dogs have compassed Me: the assembly of the wicked have enclosed Me: they pierced My hands and My feet. I may tell all My bones: they look and stare upon Me. They part My garments among them, and cast lots upon My vesture." Psalm 22:16-18. The prophecy concerning His garments was carried out without counsel or interference from the friends or the enemies of the Crucified One. To the soldiers who had placed Him upon the cross, His clothing was given. Christ heard the men's contention as they parted the garments among them. His tunic was woven throughout without seam, and they said, "Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be." Read More


Dear Dr. Carson,

I’m writing to you as a fellow Christian and father of a child who’s life you saved many years ago.

Our family will always be grateful for those gifted hands that God used to spare little Allison’s life after an unfortunate birth injury. By the way, she’s doing well. In fact, she just turned 18 and has committed her life to following Christ, for which we are very thankful.

I mention this so you’ll understand that I have a lot of love in my heart for you. I’m not writing out of hostility or with some political agenda in mind. This is from my heart to yours, and I hope you’ll receive it in that light.

When you started your campaign for president, you embarked on a new and different path – one founded on Christian principles. You upheld honesty as of paramount importance to you, as well as being circumspect and polite in all of your interactions.

This was not only refreshing, it was amazingly different, and millions of Americans (and fellow Seventh-day Adventists) rallied behind you. It was remarkable to see you unapologetically state your commitment to Christian values, and even more impressive to see you actually exemplify those values in your interactions – even in the face of withering attacks.

Certainly for many of us, the most painful of those attacks came when Donald Trump verbally bludgeoned you – day after day – questioning your honesty, stating that you had fabricated your life story, mocking your personal conversion experience, and even comparing you to a pedophile.

In the wake of these attacks, we sadly watched your poll numbers fall. But more than that, we were disheartened to watch the demise of your influence and legacy.

But Dr. Carson, nothing could have prepared me for the ache in the pit of my stomach I’ve had for several weeks now since you’ve taken a whole new and surprising turn.

In endorsing Donald Trump, you have assured us that all of those malicious attacks and lies against you were merely political – nothing more than “the politics of personal destruction”, and that we should simply overlook all of that and follow you on a new and different path “for the good of our nation”.

You have told us that in reality there are two Donald Trumps – the one we all see on stage, and another one who is more noble.

You have encouraged us to dismiss the vulgarity, profanity, disparaging women for their looks, lying to assassinate the character of people who oppose him, referring to people he doesn’t like as “dumb”, “stupid”, “bimbos”, etc., boasting about the size of his genitalia, not to mention the notion of rewarding the “school bully” and the message that sends our kids. Apparently, all of this is irrelevant to your endorsement and promotion of the man.

Yet the Bible asks, “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” Amos 3:3

My point here is about Christian character as it relates to who and what we endorse and promote.

This is about virtue.

If you voluntarily publicly endorse and promote another man – you are unavoidably connecting yourself to his values or lack thereof.

On your Facebook page, you are being likened to Daniel or Joseph. But we have no record that either Daniel or Joseph ever willingly campaigned, promoted or endorsed the heathen men they served under as foreign captives.

What troubles me most Dr. Carson, is what I hear you saying now.

Just this week on “The View” you stated:

“When you’re very nice, you’re very respectful, you talk about the real issues…where does it get you? It gets you where it got me – no where.”

When asked about endorsing a candidate and campaign characterized by lies, you responded:

“Tell me a politician who doesn’t tell lies…”

When one of the hosts shared her concern about possible racist views held by the candidate and campaign you are endorsing, you’re response was:

“What’s the alternative?”

As you said, “We have to work with what we’ve got…”

This is the ultimate example of: “If you can’t beat em, join em!”

Dr. Carson, I know you want to save America. You and I both know what the Bible predicts for this country’s future, and yet I can appreciate your desire to stem the tide and “hold back” the winds for the saving of souls. But there’s no saving America without virtue.

If it’s not about integrity and honesty, if it’s not about virtue – there’s no point. These values are at your core. By shrugging off the importance of these values now – you’re ignoring principles that were at the core of our nation in it’s founding. Our forefathers made clear that virtue is essential to the success of our government.

It was hard to watch others destroy you by their vicious attacks. It’s much harder now to watch you destroy yourself by abandoning the principles you stood for in the beginning. Please stop!

Dr. Carson, have the courage to stand again – for yourself and for the right.

We don’t need yet another voice telling us that we simply have to accept low morals – because after all that’s just the way politics works.

We don’t need reminders that all politicians lie.

We need you to call us to a higher standard of truth and integrity.

We need you to remind us that even though being kind and respectful and talking about the real issues didn’t get you the nomination – it’s still the only correct path for the true Christian.

We need you to demonstrate that you don’t have to lower yourself to endorsing values that are at cross purposes with Godly principles in order to have a positive influence in this world.

We need you to point us to a better way, a higher path. Point us to that which counts for eternity – the path of virtue.

“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” Mark 8:36

It’s not too late to rescind your endorsement. It will take courage, but it will be worth it.

It will send a clarion call, and bring courage to many to look upward and follow the path of virtue.

Millions are watching…rescind your endorsement. This is your moment…Will you take a stand?

Your Friend,

Dave Westbrook





The Keep Sunday Special campaign by the USDAW  illustrates the effort being put forth by a number of groups in restricting work on Sunday. The USDAW is the fourth largest trade union in the UK. They with others succeeded in blocking the efforts of the UK government from expanding Sunday trading hours.

26 conservative MPs rebelled against their party and rejected the governments effort to extend permitted hours of trading on Sunday in the UK. The vote was 317 to 286. Some have called the move an "unholy alliance".


Pope Francis while traveling back to Rome was asked about Donald Trump's plan to build a wall to stop illegal immigration into the United States. In response he told journalists "a person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not the gospel."

The Roman Church desires to influence legislation in the United States. The Vatican does not believe in a separation between church and state and here is seen evidence of this teaching. The United States is not, nor ever was a Catholic nation. It was founded upon Protestant principles. That is why so many Catholics were allowed to immigrate to the United States. Protestants and Americans believe in freedom, freedom of conscience and religious freedom. The pope is not at liberty to call for legislation regarding how we worship or do not worship God.

Susan DeLemus New Hampshire State Rep when asked about the pope's comments said “the Pope is the anti-Christ. Do your research.” She was voicing what has been a long held Bible belief. She clarified her statement by saying she was not being personal regarding this pope, but was speaking of the office of the papacy, the Vatican.

Last year the pope revealed a disturbing truth about the Vatican's teachings about religious liberty. He said if a friend "says a swear word against my mother, then a punch awaits him." "One cannot provoke, one cannot insult other people's faith, one cannot make fun of faith." This is contrary to American law, American tradition, Protestant teachings, and contrary to the Bible. We in America used to have freedom a speech as well as freedom of religion. The Vatican may do as it wishes in its country, but it has no moral nor legal right to meddle in America.

As for protecting one's sovereignty, if the pope does not like walls, then let him remove the wall around his undemocratic state before he dictates who is and who is not a Christian based on their desire to protect their country.

Vatican City, officially the Vatican City State is a walled enclave within the city of Rome. With an area of approximately 110 acres, and a population of 842, it is the smallest state in the world by both area and population.  Wikipedia.







Rowan County Clerk,  Kim Davis has been jailed for contempt of court when  she refused to participate in the marriages of homosexuals  by issuing them marriage licenses. Obama and Hillary believe she ought to obey the "law of the land".  Hillary and Obama want the clerk in jail for not keeping the law.

Are there any who will stand up for  this woman who refuses to compromise her faith? How about the American Civil Liberties Union? Surely they would defend her religious liberty. The ACLU urged the court to fine her an amount "sufficiently serious" that would force her compliance. Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Mike Huckabee are defending her actions. This is an important case to understand correctly. Will we obey the laws of the land or the commandments of God? Each professing Christian will soon have to make this decision.



The Roman Catholic pope has been invited by a Roman Catholic Speaker of the House to address a joint session of Congress. This has never happened before. There is a reason why. The United States Constitution does not allow a state religion such  as the Vatican does. There is no democracy in the Vatican state. To stand before the Congress of the United States is an affront to the principles upon which the United States was founded.







Turkey attacks ISIS. The United States wanted Turkey to join the fight, but with no success until now.  What has changed? Turkey wants to once again lead the Islamic world. Does the attack against those who proclaim to be the caliphate signal a message about who will be the caliphate?






The United States Supreme Court has ruled in favor of the Affordable Care Act which was written so that states which did not set up exchanges for insurance could not receive subsidies for individuals insured by the Act. The Court in a 6 to 3 decision decided to rewrite the law so that states can receive subsidies even though they did not setup exchanges. source Justices Scalia, Alito and Thomas ruled for the minority. Justice Antonin Scalia, in his dissent accused the court of rewriting Obama Care, “we really should start calling the law SCOTUScare" (Supreme Court of the United States care). “By the state” appears in seven provisions of the Affordable Care Act that mentions tax credits. “What are the odds, do you think, that the same slip of the pen occurred in seven separate places?” “The interpretive somersaults they have formed will remain as astounding precedent, cited by lawyers to confuse our jurisprudence.”  “And these two cases will publish forever the discouraging truth that the Supreme Court of the United States favors some laws over others, and that it is prepared to sacrifice all the usual interpretive principles … to uphold and assist its favorites.”

Why do we take the time to comment on this "political" matter? Because it is a revelation of the fall of the United States which was depicted in the Bible as a lamb when she was born, but would eventually speak as a dragon. The United States was a Protestant nation originally that was founded on personal liberty, including religious liberty. Today, the Constitution of the United States which set up separation of powers between the Congress, the Court, and the President has been fully ignored when the Court did not interpret the law as to its Constitutionality, but acted the part of the Congress by rewriting the legislation in order to accomplish what it thought was a proper law. This is not something new, but it is one of the most blatantly unconstitutional acts that all can understand.

Many are not aware of the situation and what has been legislated and how the Court rewrote the law. Following is an explanation that if studied will reveal what the legislation was, why it was worded as it was, and that it is indeed a rewriting of the law by the United States Supreme Court.

Jonathan Gruber who was an architect in drafting the legislation explains why Obama Care required states to set up exchanges in order to receive subsidies. There is no question about the wording in the legislation, yet the SCOTUS ignored the plain statement in the bill and reinterpreted the law in order to sustain the subsidies to states that did not set up exchanges.







A magnitude 7.9 earthquake struck between Kathmandu and Pokhara in Nepal on Saturday 25th April leaving over 2000 dead, countless unaccounted for, buildings destroyed and avalanches on Mt Everest. The devastation and fear is great as tremors continue.

Reports from Rajendra and all at 3 Angels Nepal say they are safe but many in the surrounding communities are in need of help.

The 3 Angels school, children’s homes, office and Safehaven home have come through unscathed except for some cracks in one of the children’s homes and the office.

But those in the surrounding communities have fared far worse and need their help.

3 AN want to say thank you to all those who have sent messages of support and are praying for them.

Our hearts go out to the people of Nepal. In Newcastle we think it’s tough after a big storm this week but an earthquake of this magnitude is beyond our comprehension. Let’s not just say we care let’s show it…..

Help 3 Angels Nepal help those in need in their community…..

A Testimony

By Desert Rose

It happened over a decade ago. Details have become blurred or missing over time, but I do remember the impossible position I was put in and the results.

He was only a puppy. So small, yet so full of life, even with his injury – a gaping gash on his throat that went all the way through the skin revealing his insides. Having called a vet and being told they could put him down for free, but would charge for anything else, and having no money, they turned to us for help. Actually, me. Could you stitch him up, was the plea.

I sew skirts, not puppies! No, I can't stitch up a puppy. They understood and started to leave. But I couldn't let them go. Wait – let's think this through again. We went over it and over it – none of us had money, the vet wouldn't work for free unless it was to put the animal down. But to stitch a puppy? No. I can't do it. They started to leave again. Wait! I still couldn't let them go. Silently I warred against my feelings. How could I say 'No?' Because I didn't want to hurt the creature – he was already hurt; because I was afraid it wouldn't help – he was already in a hopeless condition; because I just didn't want to stitch a puppy! His doom was ensured.

Cause of Disasters

Amid a great number of horrendous disasters, there are efforts to explain them.

Global warming is the explanation by many who reject Bible truth as to why we are seeing so many natural disasters. Yet many experts cannot tie these floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, and tornadoes to global warming.

We even hear a lot of "experts" telling us there are not more of these disasters. it is just that we have better reporting or an increase in population.

As believers in an omnipotent God and a powerful fallen angel, we know that there is more than we can see. We do not explain all that we see in nature in the same manner as do many scientists who do not believe. We do not see matters as did those who built the tower of Babel to rise above any future world-wide flood. No, we understand that God and Satan have powers to influence what we see in the natural world.

We have peace knowing "that all things work together for good to them that love God."  Satan may destroy, and he does, but he cannot do one thing that God does not allow him to do. As he is about this world wreaking havoc, we know that God is our Protector.

"I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee." Psalms 91:2-7.
