I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
Listened as the crowd would sing
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"
One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing
Roman cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
Once you'd gone there was never
Never an honest word
And that was when I ruled the world

 

It was a wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People couldn't believe what I'd become
Revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh who would ever want to be king?

I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing
Roman cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
I know St Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

Hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing
Roman cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
I know St Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

2015 h MONDAY 21 NOVEMBER 2011 : COURTESY  COL TERRY

 MICHELANGELO'S MASTERPIECE

Here is an amazing bit of technology that you would never see in  person, and you would NEVER be alone in the room. It is ALWAYS VERY CROWDED and of course you can't see Michelangelo's artwork close up as you can here. This is especially spectacular if you have a large high-definition screen!  

TO VIEW EVERY PART OF THE MICHELANGELO'S MASTERPIECE, JUST CLICK AND DRAG YOUR ARROW IN THE DIRECTION YOU WISH TO SEE.
 
In the lower left, click on the plus (+) to move closer, on the minus (-)  to move away.  (I use the scroll on my mouse instead.)  Choir is thrown in free!
 
AMAZING! MOVE THE ARROW (Slowly) AND YOU WILL SEE EVERY PART OF THE CHAPEL.
 
 
This virtual tour of the Sistine Chapel is incredible. Apparently done by Villanova at the request of the Vatican . Thought you would enjoy the quality and a bit of Rome on your computer. Amazing what can be done with technology.

                                  I HAVE DECIDED TO FOLLOW JESUS

0920 h WEDNESDAY 14 SEPTEMBER 2011 : I got this email from CatPowerX Anil my BIL.I decided to feature the story along with two carefully chosen YouTube videos ( song by Heritage Singers with lyrics  ) ..... I've served in the NE India and it is true that the tribal chieftans  were converted and the whole tribe followed suit .... Nagaland has several tribes and all of them 've become Christians (Anglicans,Catholics,Lutherans etc )  according to who converted them and the state language is English . How far this apocryphal story is true is left to you ....




Story behind "I have decided to follow Jesus"


The story of the song is covered in the Book by Dr. P.P. Job and Indian preacher in His book “Why God Why”


An excerpt from the book is given below:
About 150 years ago, there was a great revival in Wales, England. As a result of this, many missionaries came from England and Germany to North-East India to spread the Gospel. At the time, north-east India was not divided into many states as it is today. The region was known as Assam and comprised hundreds of tribes. The tribal communities were quite primitive and aggressive by nature.

The tribal’s were also called head-hunters because of a social custom which required the male members of the community to collect as many heads as possible.

A man’s strength and ability to protect his wife was assessed by the number of heads he had collected. Therefore, a youth of marriageable age would try and collect as many heads as possible and hang them on the walls of his house. The more heads a man had, the more eligible he was considered. Into this hostile and aggressive community, came a group of Welsh missionaries spreading the message of love, peace and hope of Jesus Christ.

Naturally, they were not welcomed. One Welsh missionary succeeded in converting a man, his wife, and two children. This man’s faith proved contagious and many villagers began to accept Christ. Angry, the village chief summoned all the villagers. He then called the family who had first converted to renounce their faith in public or face execution. Moved by the Holy Spirit, the man instantly composed a song which became famous down the years. He sang:


 
I have decided to follow Jesus. (3 times)
No turning back, no turning back.


Enraged at the refusal of the man, the chief ordered his archers to arrow down the two children. As both boys lay twitching on the floor, the chief asked, “Will you deny your faith? You have lost both your children. You will lose your wife too.”

But the man sang these words in reply:

Though no one joins me, still I will follow. (3 times)
No turning back, no turning back.


The chief was beside himself with fury and ordered his wife to be arrowed down. In a moment she joined her two children in death. Now he asked for the last time,
“I will give you one more opportunity to deny your faith and live.”

In the face of death the man sang the final memorable lines:

The cross before me, the world behind me. (3 times)
No turning back, no turning back.


He was shot dead like the rest of his family. But with their deaths, a miracle took place. The chief who had ordered the killings was moved by the faith of the man. He wondered,

“Why should this man, his wife and two children die for a Man who lived in a far-away land on another continent some 2,000 years ago
?
There must be some supernatural power behind the family, and I too want that supernatural power.”

In a spontaneous confession of faith, he declared, “I too belong to Jesus Christ!”
When the crowd heard this from the mouth of their chief, the whole village accepted Christ as their Lord and Savior.
This is the power of [God in] demonstration.

Lyrics
You shall cross the barren desert,
but you shall not die of thirst.
You shall wander far in safety,
though you do not know the way.

You shall speak your words in foreign lands,
and all will understand,
You shall see the face of God and live.

Be not afraid,
I go before you always,
Come follow Me,
and I shall give you rest.

If you pass through raging waters
in the sea, you shall not drown.
If you walk amidst the burning flames,
you shall not be harmed.

If you stand before the pow'r of hell
and death is at your side,
know that I am with you, through it all

Be not afraid,
I go before you always,
Come follow Me,
and I shall give you rest.

Blessed are your poor,
for the Kingdom shall be theirs.
Blest are you that weep and mourn,
for one day you shall laugh.

And if wicked men insult and hate you, all because of Me,
blessed, blessed are you!

Be not afraid,
I go before you always,
Come follow Me,
and I shall give you rest.

According to St. Bede, an English historian of the early 8th century, Easter owes its origin to the old Teutonic mythology. It was derived from the name Eostre, the Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring, to whom the month of April was dedicated. The festival of Eostre was celebrated at the vernal equinox, when the day and night gets an equal share of the day.

Prayer for fear of DEATH

O Lord, the hour of your favor draws near, the day of your mercy and our salvation - when death was destroyed and eternal life began. We acknowledge our sins and our offenses are always before us.Blot out all our wrongdoings and give us a new and steadfast spirit.Restore us to your friendship and number us among the living who share the joy of your Son's risen life.

WEBMASTER:..after THE ABOVE SPIRITUAL  PRAYER 've a coupla spirits and go to sleep!Cheers!Skoll!

A class mate and friend from my Germanite days was speaking to me yesterday.I asked him why he sounded so demoralized..{he's only 3 days older than me ..his only son just got married...gets pension from 2 banks where he'd worked and runs a high school...got drivers , a wife to drive him mad,now a daughter in law to drive him madder and he has a real driver to drive him around..cooks and servants to give him a bath..life cannot  get  worser (not correct usage but sounds good lol!! - bad,worse and worst) /more worse it can only get better }... he replied that he fears death.So I told him to start living and spend his money instead of trying to make more.One can't keep on living for the desires and wants of your parents,then your wife and the in - laws and worse of all for your off springs.Get a life man as Sandra would exclaim,"Pds coffins don't 've pockets!"

The Christian faith is based on the Ascension  of Jesus Christ to the abode of Abba the Father somewhere above.Say the Paternoster - The Lord's Prayer to get a little insight into the mind of Jesus and not the birth of Jesus.His death on the cross is likened to the sacrificial lamb.Animal sacrifices in primitive societies and even now were/are offered votively to gods/goddess.Jesus banned/tried to ban this practice.Refer the Bible where he thrashes those sellers of sin offerings around the Temple.Ponder on the Roman Catholic church allowing places like Vellangani and Infant Jesus Church.Hope you get the drift..on can't 've high thoughts on an empty stomach..hey time for my brekky...Give us this day our daily bread and booze......Amen
