Party time

Jesus told a story about the son who went astray, then came home, and his father gave him a party to celebrate. Luke 15:25. Many years ago I did a little booklet to try and reach people with the gospel, so I have updated it and changed it today, and this is the finished product.

Here are some Bible verses you can check out to see if I am telling you the truth.

Revelation 19:9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

Mark 16:16 Jesus said: He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

John 14:12 Jesus said: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

James 1:17  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

Hebrews 10:29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

2 Corinthians 6:2  (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

Revelation 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.


There is something very special about Galilee, because this is where God touched down on planet earth through His Son Jesus Christ.

In my life, I have had the honour of meeting or getting in very close proximity to some very famous people like Mickie Most, Cliff Richard, Min Shaw, Pat Boone, Billy Graham and Elvis Presley. However the greatest thrill of all was feeling close to our Lord Jesus Christ, and that is what I felt when we were in Galilee. I wished I could have stayed there forever and ever! After being there, I felt inspired to draw the Book of Mark (in the Bible) as a colouring book for children. Since then I have been trying to redo it using the paint programme on the computer. So far I have only got as far as chapter seven. It is here on this website – if you are interested. Anyway, here are some songs and sites of Galilee that help me to try and recapture that special feeling I felt from long ago.
