  • Napoleon testifies about Christ


    "Don't plan without God. God seems to have a delightful way of

    upsetting the plans we have made, when we have not taken Him

    into account."
    - Oswald Chambers

    "I know men, and I tell you that Jesus is not a man. The religion of

    Christ is a mystery which subsists by its own force, and proceeds

    from a mind which is not a human mind. We find in it a marked

    individuality, which originated a train of words and actions unknown

    before. Jesus is not a philosopher, for His proofs are miracles, and

    from the first His disciples adored Him. Alexander, Caesar,

    Charlemagne and myself founded empires; but on what foundation

    did we rest the creatures of our genius? Upon force. But Jesus

    Christ founded an empire upon love; and at this hour millions of

    men would die for Him. I die before my time, and my body will be

    given back to the earth to become food for worms. Such is the fate

    of him who has been called the great Napoleon. What an abyss

    between my deep misery and the eternal kingdom of Christ, which

    is proclaimed, loved, adored, and is still existing over the whole

    earth!" Then, turning to Gen. Bertrand, the emperor added: "If you

    do not perceive that Jesus Christ is God, I did wrong in appointing

    you a general."
    - Napoleon Bonaparte

    "Prayer can do anything that God can do."

    - E.M. Bounds

    "Revival is a renewed conviction of sin and repentance, followed by

    an intense desire to live in obedience to God. It is giving up one's

    will to God in deep humility."
    - Charles Finney

    "What I have seen in the past 10 years of traveling - performing at a

    church one day and a casino the next - is that a lot of people in the

    church want to be entertained, and people in casinos want to be

    ministered to. That's hard to understand, but I see a hunger in the

    world that I don't see in the church."
    - Ricky Shaggs (musician)

    "Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me,

    let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For

    whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose

    his life for my sake shall find it.

    -- Matthew 16:24,25 (KJV)

    "To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning

    the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope

    means hoping when everything seems hopeless."

    - Gilbert K. Chesterton

    "Don't try to bring the Word of God down to your level. Let it pull

    you up to its level."
    - David MacDonald
