And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth,

and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air,

and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Gen 1.28

so completely and cheerfully

as when they do it

from religious conviction.”

You can be a “good” wife/husband,

a “good” parent and not be a Christian,

but when you become a Christian,

you will IMPROVE as a mate or a parent.

The first man chose to disobey

(God said to stay away).

His son chose to kill;

Soon sin was so in style

Mankind did it all the while.

Its stench was very ill.

ON  2/ 29/ 1948

Richard Wurmbrand was arrested 2/29/1948. He was a Lutheran pastor on his way to church this Lord’s Day. A black sedan pulled up beside him, all 4 doors opened & 4 men put him in the car. In prison he was labeled ‘Prisoner Number 1.’ All told, he spend 14 yrs in Romanian, Communist prisons (cataloged under a false name to hide him) – 3 yrs in solitary confinement cell 12’ underground without light or window. 

He was born 3/24/1909, youngest of 4 Jewish brothers in Bucharest, Romania. He became fluent in 9 languages, was active in leftist politics & was a stockbroker.  On 10/26/1936 he wed Sabina (who herself was imprisoned 3 yrs) – they had a son, Mihai.  They were converted to Christ (1938) mainly because of a German carpenter, Christian Wolfkes. 1945-47, Richard distributed 1 million Gospels to Russian troops.

His imprisonment included being chilled (like a walk-in cooler) then brought out & beaten.  After being released & “ransomed” ($10K) he made his way to England & eventually to US, where he testified before a committee of the Senate & showed them his 18 deep torture wounds.  It was after this he spoke at IHC, then held at God’s Bible School where I heard him in person.  This author of 18+ books died 2/17/2001.
