In 1965, heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali fought former champion Sonny Liston. The bout lasted less than one round as Ali knocked Liston out with a right hook that came so fast that no one saw it coming; especially Liston. One could say our fight is fixed. Jesus already defeated our enemy, the devil and his forces. All we have to do is keep standing, for the scriptures command; ‘Stand fast in the liberty by which Christ has made us free…’ (Galatians 5:1).
St. Paul’s Chapel played a significant role in New York’s 9/11 scenario. Could it be a sign of prophetic fulfillment in Biblical scripture. According to Jonathan Cann, a Messianic Jew and author of ‘The Harbinger’, St Paul’s was a central cast member in forewarning of pending judgement as found in Isaiah 9:10 which states: “The bricks have fallen down, But we will rebuild with hewn stones; The sycamores are cut down, But we will replace them with cedars.” (NKJV)
The horizon was gray-black with patches of pale blue sky peek-a-booing through the clouds as Hurricane Sandy approached. The air was like a Kansas afternoon moments before an f-4 tornado roared in; still. The Harlem brownstones on Malcolm X Blvd. and 136th St. changed values as fast-moving clouds rationed out rays of sunlight on their weathered facades.
