INSPIRING QUOTES

"God's time for revival is the very darkest hour, when everything seems hopeless. It is always the Lord's way to go to the very worst cases to manifest His glory."

"A heartfelt welcome to all participants of the 2014 March for Jesus in Warsaw!”

IMG 0913

"The event we are taking part in today is truly one of its kind. We have not come together to stand against anything or anyone, but to stand for something and someone. This march is for Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Today, in this capital city, we can come together in unity and share the privilege of manifesting our faith in the one true God. We can show the world that we, the people of Poland, have nothing to be ashamed of and we will not keep hiding in the shadows. On the contrary, we will be like King David, we will dance and praise the Living God, bringing the Ark of Covenant, surrounded by people, into our capital city. A thousand years after David, we will be like him, dancing and singing to our God. We will dance to the popular song “When the Spirit of the Lord moves in my heart I will dance like David danced”.

It is my heart’s desire for us to stand in unity and honor God just like this great ancient king.

This year’s March sets out from a place deserving our deepest respect. It is full of symbolism we cannot afford to forget. Over here we see the Tomb of The Unknown Soldier, symbolises the sacrifice of people fighting for our freedom and democracy. Behind us is the cross – a symbol of victory and grace. A symbol of God’s limitless love, the highest sacrifice made by the very Creator of heavens and earth, our God, Jesus Christ. There is one more symbol here, we can see it in the distance, a symbol of patriotism. It is the monument of a man who proved with more than words that our Homeland is something more than a set of empty phrases. This monument commemorates Marshal Jozef Pilsudski.

It was Marshal Pilsudski who said: “A nation who does not respect its Past does not deserve the respect of the Present and has no right to a Future”.

This place where we are standing today calls to us in so many ways to REMEMBER, the past generations are calling – DO NOT FORGET. God Himself is calling us to learn and draw conclusions from the experience of those who came before us.

God, in His Word, tells us about many places of remembrance. When Joshua crossed the Jordan River he used stones to build a monument, proclaiming: “When your children ask their fathers in time to come, saying, ‘What are these stones?’ then you shall let your children know, saying, ‘Israel crossed over this Jordan on dry land’ for the LORD your God dried up the waters of the Jordan before you until you had crossed over, as the LORD your God did to the Red Sea, which He dried up before us until we had crossed over, that all the peoples of the earth may know the hand of the LORD, that it is mighty, that you may fear the LORD your God forever” (Joshua 4:20-24).

We live in times when many want to mock the achievements of the past generations, but we, Christians, should be different: WE ARE MEANT TO REMEMBER!

We, Christians need to cultivate this universal, unchanging truth: “If we don’t know where we are coming from, we will not know were we are going”.

We are marching for Jesus every day, in everything we do, in our lifestyle, in the words we speak. Once a year, however, we can march for Jesus together, as one family. On this very special day we can march as one. We have the opportunity to honor the One who died for our sins and was not ashamed to call us His children.

In this place, I want to tell my God: “I praise You for what you have done, that it was your will to leave Your throne and save a sinner like me”.

If I also had the opportunity to say a few words to those heroes who died for our freedom, this is what I would tell them:

Heroes! We live in times when patriotism is often unwelcome and the words GOD, HONOR AND HOMELAND are mocked. But we, Christians from all over the world declare and want you to know that we remember and we are grateful for your courage, sacrifice and faith in a better future. We know that it is thanks to you and to the one God, Jesus Christ, that we can stand here today, enjoying the freedom you have purchased for us with your own blood. We bow our heads, expressing our deepest thanks".

Lord, today there are so many important people gathered in this place, but it is our heart’s desire for you, Lord Jesus, God Almighty, to bless us with Your presence. This March is for You alone. These people have gathered for Your glory. Lead us all through our capital city – Warsaw!

Closing, I would like to recall words once spoken in the very place where we are standing now. They were pronounced 35 years ago by another Pole who lived, like me, in a foreign land, missing his homeland and longing to see it fully devoted to God.

I want to repeat these words after a great Patriot, voice them loud and clear, so that all of heaven and earth can hear me as I pray these words from Psalm 104:

Myself a son of this land, I am calling today… Let your Spirit descend! Let your Spirit descend! and renew the face of the earth – of this land! Amen!”

Let us remember that the Word of God is powerful.

These are my wishes for you, Poland, and for every person standing here in the Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ”.

Pawłowski's speech in Polish:

Przemówienie inauguracyjne wypowiedziane przez Artura
Pawłowskiego przed Marszem dla Jezusa w Warszawie 2014.

"Witam was bardzo serdecznie na Marszu dla Jezusa 2014!

Jesteśmy dzisiaj na wydarzeniu jedynym w swoim rodzaju. Zgromadziliśmy się nie przeciw czemuś czy komuś, lecz za czymś i za kimś. Jest to marsz za i dla Jezusa Chrystusa naszego Pana i Zbawiciela. Dzisiaj w stolicy Polski w jedności, razem możemy mieć ten zaszczyt aby zamanifestować naszą wiarę w Jedynego Boga. Pokazać światu, że MY POLACY nie mamy się czego wstydzić, że nie musimy i nie będziemy się chować gdzieś po kątach. Wręcz przeciwnie, będziemy jak Dawid niegdyś, tańcząc i wychwalając Boga Żywego, który przyprowadził ludzi i Arkę Przymierza do swojej stolicy. Tak i my dzisiaj, tysiące lat później będziemy tańczyć i śpiewać naszemu Bogu. W rytm tak dobrze nam znanej piosenki „Gdy Boży Duch napełnia mnie jak Dawid tańczyć/śpiewać chcę”.

Moim pragnieniem jest, abyśmy właśnie tak, jak kiedyś ten wielki Król uhonorował Boga, tak i my dzisiaj w jedności Go również uhonorujemy.

W tym roku Marsz rozpoczyna się w miejscu którego nie wolno nam zignorować. Jest to miejsce symboli o których nie możemy zapomnieć. Z jednej strony znajduje się Grób Nieznanego Żołnierza, symbol ludzkiego poświęcenia i ofiary którą złożyli ludzie w walce za naszą wolność i demokrację. Z tyłu za nami stoi krzyż, symbol zwycięstwa i łaski. Symbol nieskończonej Bożej miłości, najwyższej poniesionej ofiary jaką zapłacił sam Stwórca Nieba i Ziemi Jezus Chrystus nasz Bóg. Jest jeszcze jeden symbol, stoi tam w oddali, symbol Patriotyzmu. Pomnik człowieka który nie tylko słowami ale czynami udowodnił, że ojczyzna znaczy coś więcej niż tylko puste frazesy. Jest to pomnik Marszałka Józefa Piłsudskiego. To właśnie on powiedział kiedyś:

„Naród, który nie szanuje swej przeszłości nie zasługuje na szacunek teraźniejszości i nie ma prawa do przyszłości”. Marszałek Józef Piłsudski

To miejsce na którym się znajdujemy, w każdym calu krzyczy PAMIĘTAJCIE, przeszłe pokolenia wołają - nie ZAPOMINAJCIE - a sam Bóg nawołuje abyśmy uczyli się i wyciągali wnioski z doświadczeń przeszłych pokoleń.

W biblii Bóg niejednokrotnie pokazuje nam przykłady miejsc pamięci. Gdy Jozue przekroczył Jordan ustawił pomnik z kamieni mówiąc „Gdy w przyszłości wasi potomkowie pytać się będą swoich ojców: Co znaczą te kamienie? Pouczcie waszych synów, mówiąc: Suchą nogą przeszedł tu Izrael przez Jordan, Gdyż Pan, Bóg wasz, wysuszył wody Jordanu przed wami, aż się przeprawiliście, podobnie jak Pan, Bóg wasz, uczynił z Morzem Czerwonym, które wysuszył przed nami, aż się przeprawiliśmy, Aby poznały wszystkie ludy ziemi, że ręka Pana jest mocna, i abyście się bali Pana, Boga waszego, po wszystkie dni.” Księga Jozuego 4:20-24

Nastały czasy gdzie wielu chce drwić z dorobku przeszłych pokoleń ale My Chrześcijanie mamy być inni: MAMY PAMIĘTAĆ!

My chrześcijanie musimy kultywować tą uniwersalną, niezmienną prawdę „Jeżeli nie wiemy skąd przychodzimy to nie wiemy również dokąd zmierzamy”.

Maszerujemy dla Jezusa codziennie we wszystkim co robimy, tym jak żyjemy i tym co mówimy. Lecz przynajmniej raz w roku Maszerujmy dla Jezusa razem, w jedności, jak jedna rodzina. W ten jeden wyjątkowy dzień możemy zrobić to wspólnie. Mamy okazję uhonorować Tego, który zmarł za nasze grzechy i nie wstydził się nazwać nas Swoimi dziećmi.

Na tym miejscu, Bogu mojemu mówię: „Chwała Tobie za to co zrobiłeś, że zechciałeś zejść ze swojego tronu i zbawić takiego grzesznego człowieka jak ja”.

A Gdybym miał jeszcze okazję i mógłbym skierować kilka słów do tych bohaterów którzy polegli za naszą wolność, powiedziałbym im tak:

„Bohaterowie! Przyszło nam żyć w czasach gdzie często patriotyzm jest nie mile widziany a słowa takie jak BÓG, HONOR, OJCZYZNA wyśmiewane. Jednak dzisiaj MY chrześcijanie z całego świata deklarujemy i pragniemy abyście wiedzieli, że pamiętamy i wam dziękujemy za waszą odwagę, poświęcenie i wiarę, że kiedyś nastaną lepsze dni. Wiemy, że to dzięki wam i Bogu Jedynemu Jezusowi Chrystusowi możemy tutaj być i cieszyć się tą wolnością za którą WY zapłaciliście swoim własnym życiem. Chyląc czoła, mówimy: Dziękujemy WAM!”

Boże, dzisiaj na tym miejscu zgromadziło się wiele ważnych Osobistości ale pragnieniem naszym jest abyś to Ty Panie Jezu, Boże Wszechmogący, zaszczycił nas swoją obecnością. Ten Marsz jest dla Ciebie. Ci ludzie przyszli dla Twojej Chwały. Poprowadź nas wszystkich po naszej stolicy - Warszawie!

Na zakończenie chciałbym przypomnieć słowa wypowiedziane na tym samym placu na którym teraz stoimy. To słowa z przed 35 lat też wypowiedziane w czerwcu przez pewnego Polaka, również jak ja żyjącego na obczyźnie i również tak jak ja, tęskniącego za swoją ojczyzną którą chciał widzieć oddaną Bogu.

Pragnę ponownie zawołać tak jak kiedyś ten Patriota, wołać tak głośno aby całe niebo i cała ziemia usłyszały słowa tej modlitwy z psalmu 104:

„Wołam, ja, syn polskiej ziemi,...„Niech zstąpi Duch Twój! Niech zstąpi Duch Twój! I odnowi oblicze ziemi, tej ziemi. Amen”.

Pamiętajmy, że Słowo Boże ma moc.

Tego życzę Tobie Polsko i wszystkim tutaj zgromadzonym w imieniu
naszego Pana i Zbawiciela Jezusa Chrystusa".

For the first time ever, representatives of the Polish Catholic Church have taken part in the March for Jesus in Poland. Its main goal is the promotion of positive Christian values. It also encourages people to lead a moral life dedicated to God. Five representatives of different faiths had the chance to speak to participants, which included the Nigerian ambassador to Poland Samuel Wodi Jimba.

The procession came to an end with a speech by Artur Pawlowski, a pastor in Canada and the brains behind the March for Jesus in Poland. As expected, Franklin Graham, son of the famous evangelist Billy Graham, also took part in the festival. He is president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) and Samaritan’s Purse, an international Christian relief organisation.

Could Ric McIver still win the Alberta Tory leadership race? Actually, yes, he could! PDF Print E-mail
Written by News   
Wednesday, 16 July 2014 23:59

Ladies and gentlemen, place your bets. All the money’s on Jim Prentice – but is it the smart money? Below: Ric McIver, Jim Prentice, Jim Dinning and Gary Mar.

CALGARY

Could Ric McIver actually win the Alberta Progressive Conservative leadership race?

Or, to put that another way, could Jim Prentice lose?

Maybe that seems like a theme for a political science fiction story to you. After all, Mr. Prentice – the former banker, corporate lobbyist and federal cabinet minister – is the choice of the PC establishment.

What’s more, he’s now backed by 49 of 59 PC Members of the Legislative Assembly. All the political oddsmakers say he’s a sure bet to win. He acts like a guy who’s on a holiday cruise to victory.

But if he astonished everyone by losing, he wouldn’t be the first front-runner preferred by the mighty PC establishment to drop the ball on voting night, would he?

As a matter of fact, he’d be the third in less than a decade! The fourth in a row if you want to count Ralph Klein’s victory over Nancy Betkowski in 1992, although that one seemed like more of a real contest at the time.

Alert readers will recall that in 2006 Jim Dinning’s ascension to the throne of Peter Lougheed appeared to be all but a certainty. The smart money was all on his candidacy. The PC establishment wanted the former Alberta provincial treasurer in the job –

38 caucus members supported him, compared with 13 for the next most popular candidate. The polls showed him leading by a mile. And all the hot Alberta political strategists were supposedly in his corner.

For his part, Mr. Dinning acted like a man on his way to an easy victory, and an easy general election after that.

Turned out Mr. Dinning was running a terrific general election campaign, visiting every riding in the province, reaching out to all kinds of Albertans. Alas for him, though, a leadership campaign is not a general election. The number of memberships you sell counts more than the number of ridings you visit.

Perhaps Mr. Dinning paid insufficient attention to the riding associations with the votes. Perhaps he didn’t concentrate on what die-hard Tories wanted, or where their loyalties actually lay. Whatever it was, when the dust had settled, a guy named Ed Stelmach was the premier. As we all asked at the time: Ed Who?

Then in 2011, after Mr. Stelmach said to heck with the abuse that automatically goes with the job of being premier, and after a short interregnum during which the party took a look at candidates like Ted Morton and Doug Horner, the smart money settled on Gary Mar.

Mr. Mar was a former minister under Mr. Klein, and tout le monde political Alberta reached the conclusion all at once that he was the front-runner, favoured by the Tory establishment and backed by some of the same hot political strategists who had worked for Mr. Dinning.

I don’t think that Mr. Mar’s ascension to the throne was ever seen as quite the sure thing Mr. Dinning’s appeared to be. Just the same, he had the most backing in caucus – 27 members compared with 14 for Mr. Horner and 11 for Dr. Morton. The smart money settled on him early and stayed there until the night in October on which the party selected … Alison Redford.

If you like, you can blame teachers and other public employees who bought party memberships to support Ms. Redford – whom they’d mistakenly decided was some kind of progressive. But, in their defence, buying memberships is what the PC Party asked them to do. What? It wasn’t supposed to make any difference?

As for the party establishment, Ms. Redford was backed by only one caucus member other than herself, and none of the party’s big movers and shakers.

Now, here it is 2014, Ms. Redford has been fired by her own caucus, Dave Hancock is premier pro tem, and Mr. Prentice is assumed by all the same people to be the front-runner with such a massive lead that no one could possibly catch him.

Mr. McIver, who seemed like he might have had a slight chance at the start, apparently shot himself in both feet by joining something called the March for Jesus last month. Remember that? When it turned out the organizers behind the march had some astonishingly homophobic views, the punditocracy reached the conclusion he was done like dinner. After all, the whole thing smacked of the Lake of Fire debacle, the discovery in 2012 of the undiplomatic blog post by an evangelical Wildrose candidate that appears to have sunk the Wildrose Party in the 2012 general election.

But are you sure? Don’t forget that Mr. McIver, the MLA for Calgary-Hayes, was well known in Calgary before his career in provincial politics as an alderman universally known as Dr. No – for his habit of saying no to spending proposals backed by other city councillors. I’m just saying, but it seldom hurts to have a nickname in politics.

In 2010, Mr. McIver ran for mayor of Calgary – and was favoured to win, so he knows what that’s like – and did well, even if he lost to a more liberal guy named Naheed Nenshi. The next year, he ran for the Legislature and got elected.

People all over Alberta – and especially in Calgary and the south – know who he is and what he stands for. A lot of them like that Dr. No stuff, and a fair number may even not have cared about – or noticed – the story about the March for Jesus.

Name recognition alone might not be enough to float his boat, but in the meantime, Mr. Prentice is campaigning a lot like … Jim Dinning.

He’s running a good general election campaign designed to persuade Alberta voters that he’s not scary and, even after the flip-flops and entitled behaviour of Alison Redford, he can be trusted.

That may work with the masses in Edmonton, where a lot of voters at the moment plan to vote NDP, and in Calgary, which seems to be leaning the Wildrose way nowadays. But how will it play in Ponoka? More importantly, how will it play inside the PC Party – where most activists are still plenty to the right of the general populace?

I don’t know about you, but at this point in the contest, it feels to me like Mr. Prentice’s support is a mile wide and an inch deep – and that he may have forgotten that in a party leadership race, memberships sold count for more than where they were sold.

Meanwhile, Albertans know who Ric McIver is, and a fair number of them may very well like what they see. Mr. McIver is capable of selling thousands of memberships in his south Calgary powerbase, not to mention to supporters of the March for Jesus.

Jim Prentice, the same people may ask … who’s he?

And you’ve got to admit, the whole PC leadership campaign sure hasn’t caught on fire – just yet, anyway. Blogger Dave Cournoyer called it the world’s most boring political leadership race, and I’d say he just about nailed it.

So could Ric McIver actually win?

It’s unlikely, I suppose. The Tory establishment isn’t going to make it easy for him. For one thing, there’s no way it wants to lose for a third time in a row … or a fourth if you count Mr. Klein, although that one worked out better for them.

And maybe I’m just a political blogger pipe dreaming about a race that’s actually interesting.

But the answer is yes, Mr. McIver could still win – notwithstanding the self-inflicted holes in both of his feet.

Could he go on to beat the Wildrose Party? That’s a story for another day.

And could Thomas Lukaszuk, the MLA for Edmonton-Castle Downs and once Ms. Redford’s Deputy Premier and the owner of the best hair in Alberta politics, also pull off another “miracle on the prairies” and eke out a victory?

The answer to that one is easier: No.
