    Prophetic Word for 2016

    in Christianity

    Join Fire & Grace Church LIVE @11:00 AM CST as I share a prophetic word from the Lord for 2016. In a church prayer meeting on December 31, 2000, the Lord told that 2001 would be a "year of tragedy" and nine months later 9/11 took place. On December 31, 2013, the Lord gave me the word "unprecedented" for 2014 and I will share how that word of prophecy came to pass. In November of 2014, the Lord gave me the word "convergence" for 2015 and spoke to me about the convergence of Bible prophecy in 2015. I will share how that has come to pass and I will share what the Lord gave me for 2016. To listen by phone call 347-884-8566.

    Bl. Théophane Vénard

    in Religion

    Rebroadcast of the long running radio program, "The Ave Maria Hour", a presentation of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. www.AtonementFriars.org


    Théophane Vénard studied at the College of Doué-la-Fontaine, Montmorillon, Poitiers, and at the Paris Seminary for Foreign Missions which he entered as a sub-deacon. Ordained a priest in 1852, he soon departed for the Far East. After fifteen months at Hong Kong he arrived at his mission in West Tonkin (N. Vietnam). At the time, it was illegal to proselytise in Vietnam.


    Shortly after his arrival a new royal edict was issued against Christians, and bishops and priests were obliged to seek refuge in caves, dense woods, and elsewhere. Father Vénard continued to exercise his ministry at night, and, more boldly, in broad day. In November of 1860, he was betrayed and captured. Tried before a mandarin, he refused to apostatize and was sentenced to be beheaded. For three months during his captivity he lived in a cage, from which he wrote to his family beautiful and consoling letters, joyful in anticipation of his crown. His bishop, Monsignor Retord, wrote of him at this time: "Though in chains, he is as gay as a little bird".


    On the way to martyrdom Father Vénard chanted psalms and hymns. To his executioner, who coveted his clothing and asked what he would give to be killed promptly, he answered: "The longer it lasts the better it will be". His head, after exposure at the top of a pole, was secured by the Christians and is now venerated in Tonkin. The body rests in the crypt at the motherhouse of the Paris Foreign Mission Society in Paris, France.


    He was canonized on June 19, 1988 by Pope John Paul II.

We will feature our regular PANW report with dispatches on developments in the Republic of South Africa involving the suspension of the government from the US-sponsored Africa Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) along with the recent unrest surrounding the parliamentary workers strike in Cape Town; the call for the disarming of the opposition RENAMO group in the Republic of Mozambique; the Zimbabwe state media has announced record production in the tobacco industry as a testament to the successes of the land reform program initiated fifteen years ago; and the United Nations envoy to neo-colonial Libya has been exposed as an operative of the allies of Washington and Wall Street in the region.

    Fate of Persecutors of the Prophet Joseph Smith & Law of God regarding Sodomites

    in Politics

    The ruffian of whom I have spoken, who set him against the
    well-curb, now secured a bowie knife for the purpose of severing
    his head from his body. He raised the knife and was in the attitude
    of striking, when a light, so sudden and powerful, burst from
    the heavens upon the bloody scene, (passing its vivid chain between
    Joseph and his murderers.) that they were struck with terrified
    awe and filled with consternation. This light, in its appearance and
    potency, baffles all powers of description. The arm of the ruffian,
    that held the knife, fell powerless; the muskets of the four, who
    fired, fell to the ground, and they all stood like marble statues, not
    having power to move a single limb of their bodies.
    By this time most of the men had fled in great disorder. I
    never saw so frightened a set of men before. Col. Williams saw the
    light and was also badly frightened; but he did not entirely lose
    the use of his limbs or speech. Seeing the condition of these men
    he hallooed to some who had just commenced to retreat, for God's
    sake to come and carry off these men. They came back and carried
    them by main strength towards the baggage wagons. They seemed
    as helpless as if they were dead. Daniel H. Wells; The Martyrs, pp. 79-81.


    "My father Jacob Hofheins was born on December 4, 1812, in
    Baden, Germany. He emigrated to America in 1830 and joined
    the Mormon Church in 1835. He was a bodyguard of the Prophet
    Joseph Smith in the days of Nauvoo, and was present at the martyrdom
    of the Prophet at Carthage, Illinois. I have heard him speak
    many times of the cruelty of the mobbers and have heard him state
    many times of the light that struck the fiend who raised his arm to
    cut off the head of the Prophet, the fiend's hand was paralyzed and
    fell to his side. Eliza Morgan

    Backbone Power: Dr. Anne Brown on The Authentic Woman with Shannon Fisher

    in Women

    This week, Shannon welcomes Dr. Anne Brown, PhD, RN. Brown worked as an Alcohol Clinical Specialist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and also served as the Program Director of the Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Program at Greater Cape Ann Human Services. She is a graduate of the University of Virginia, BS in Nursing; Boston University, MS in Psychiatric-Mental Health in Nursing; and International University, PhD in Addiction Studies.


    Most of us know at least one individual suffering from an addiction, victimhood, or martyrdom. Dr. Brown explains how and why we must stand up to these masters of sabotage. Addiction touches the life of everyone who knows the addict, and people-pleasing behavior only enables the addiction. The message in her book, Backbone Power, is that we must act to address addiction by finding our blind spots and learning to speak eith authenticity and power.  Brown has been described by one client as “having a very caring way of going for the jugular.”


    The Authentic Woman is a weekly radio show hosted by women's rights leader, Shannon Fisher, offering perspectives on the female experience in America. The show delves deeply into the worlds of writers, artists, celebrities, and community leaders. Shannon Fisher: Facebook - Twitter -  Links to Previous Episodes of The Authentic Woman.
