Columbus: Christ-Bearer; Letting History Speak for Itself
by Rosalie Slater and Carole Adams
On October 12, 1492, the providential encounter between two worlds, which up to that time had no knowledge of one another, was an exploit which would revolutionize the entire globe. That feat broke the chains of the Ocean when three Andalusian caravels with their intrepid captain and courageous crew made landfall on the other side of the uncharted "Mar de las Tinieblas" [Sea of Darkness]. It was one of the greatest landmarks of history. It changed the concept people held, up to that time, of the physiognomy of the Earth, and opened up a new stage of God's plan for the redemption of the world.
In God's view, human history is not a haphazard series of accidental and unrelated events, but rather is a divine ordering of his plan for the world. God is sovereign over all creation and, as Lord of History, ultimately controls the world's destiny, and will accomplish his purpose in the course of history.
For our generation, an equally significant landmark of history was the courageous publication of the Columbus Book of Prophecies translated from the original by Kay Brigham in 1991. This translation unveils the previously hidden primary source of the Columbus history in the Admiral's own indisputable words.

"I have seen and put in study to look into all the Scriptures, cosmography, histories, chronicles and philosophy and other arts, which our Lord opened to my understanding (I could sense his hand upon me), so that it became clear to me that it was feasible to navigate from here to the Indies."

For Such a Time as This! The Hall-Slater Library Re-opens
The Foundation for American Christian Education has officially re-opened the extraordinary collection of rare, select volumes handpicked by Verna Hall and Rosalie Slater, founders of Foundation for American Christian Education, over the sixty years of their research and publishing.
On September 16, 2011 in honor of United States Constitution Week, many friends and supporters of the Foundation participated, in a warm time of fellowship and food. After the grand opening ribbon-cutting ceremony, the attendees enjoyed their first look at the extraordinary library holdings.
The ladies realized that America needed a bulwark against the encroachment of socialism and Marxism then undermining the character of self-government in America in their generation. Hall and Slater collected from primary sources the founding principles of America’s historic liberty. Their work documents the origin of those principles in Christ His Story—the only source of true liberty. Today, though the enemy of our freedom calls itself by a new name—postmodernism and its child, radical relativism—this same bulwark is increasingly essential. The very existence of this library calls American Christians to study, learn, and teach the truths that made America and released the Gospel to the world.

"No one should be afraid to take on any enterprise in the name of our Savior, if it is right and if the purpose is purely for his holy service."

She realizes that virtually all of her customers are unemployed alcoholics and, as such, can no longer afford to patronize her bar.
To solve this problem, she comes up with a new marketing plan that allows her customers to drink now, but pay later.
Heidi keeps track of the drinks consumed on a ledger (thereby granting the customers' loans).
Word gets around about Heidi's "drink now, pay later" marketing strategy and, as a result, increasing numbers of customers flood into Heidi's bar. Soon she has the largest sales volume for any bar in Detroit.
By providing her customers freedom from immediate payment demands, Heidi gets no resistance when, at regular intervals, she substantially increases her prices for wine and beer, the most consumed beverages.
Consequently, Heidi's gross sales volume increases massively.
A young and dynamic vice-president at the local bank recognizes that these customer debts constitute valuable future assets and increases Heidi's borrowing limit.
He sees no reason for any undue concern, since he has the debts of the unemployed alcoholics as collateral!!!
At the bank's corporate headquarters, expert traders figure a way to make huge commissions, and transform these customer loans into DRINK BONDS.
These "securities" then are bundled and traded on international securities markets.
Naive investors don't really understand that the securities being sold to them as "AAA Secured Bonds" really are debts of unemployed alcoholics. Nevertheless, the bond prices continuously climb!!!, and the securities soon become the hottest-selling items for some of the nation's leading brokerage houses.
One day, even though the bond prices still are climbing, a risk manager at the original local bank decides that the time has come to demand payment on the debts incurred by the drinkers at Heidi's bar. He so informs Heidi.
Heidi then demands payment from her alcoholic patrons, but being unemployed alcoholics they cannot pay back their drinking debts.
Since Heidi cannot fulfill her loan obligations she is forced into bankruptcy. The bar closes and Heidi's 11 employees lose their jobs.
Overnight, DRINK BOND prices drop by 90%.
The collapsed bond asset value destroys the bank's liquidity and prevents it from issuing new loans, thus freezing credit and economic activity in the community.
The suppliers of Heidi's bar had granted her generous payment extensions and had invested their firms' pension funds in the BOND securities.
They find they are now faced with having to write off her bad debt and with losing over 90% of the presumed value of the bonds.
Her wine supplier also claims bankruptcy, closing the doors on a family business that had endured for three generations, her beer supplier is taken over by a competitor, who immediately closes the local plant and lays off 150 workers.
Fortunately though, the bank, the brokerage houses and their respective executives are saved and bailed out by a multibillion dollar no-strings attached cash infusion from the government.
The funds required for this bailout are obtained by new taxes levied on employed, middle-class, nondrinkers who have never been in Heidi's bar.
See, that was so easy that even Congress can understand how it works.
