Okay, be *honest* now... not just literary (or even faux literary). List what -- FOR YOU -- have been the five most important books you've ever read. Here are mine, most of 'em not at all what you might expect. Bein' honest... Oh, and no "order" to these. Finding just five is tough enough. * Run, Baby, Run - Nicky Cruz. A badly written, probably overdramatized, pulpy conversion story of a 60s-era gang member. Trouble is, it haunted me at 12 years old with questions already floating around... such as "Is God there? Does love matter? What meaning does one life have?" And of course "Sex?" And Nicky is still out there talking about Jesus nearly half a century later, which is something! * Winter of Our Discontent - John Steinbeck. If I were to pick on literary grounds a Steinbeck novel, this would not be it. But the story of a man's moral disintegration is so convincing, so utterly painful in its realness... a cautionary tale which happens to be profound in so many ways. * Autobiography of Malcolm X - I read t ...
God Bless you, Nicky Cruz when I hit a dry time I like to read 'Run Baby Run' I was without God and came to Jesus in my 20's
Once I bought a book at the Christian bookstore and every time I opened it to read it, I had a bad feeling about it. I tried reading it several times and the feeling became stronger and stronger. I finally knew that I wasn't supposed to read it and felt that I had to get it out of the house so I took it outside and put it in the trash can. That's the only time that something like that ever happened to me. Until today, but it was the opposite. I have been posting several things from Nicky Cruz and today I looked up his books on Amazon. One, in particular, caught my attention and I clicked on it to read more about it. As I read about it I could feel the Holy Spirit and I knew I had to get that book. I called a friend and told her what had happened and just talking about the book to her, I could feel the Holy Spirit again. This has never happened before either. Often when I am looking for a book I ask God to help me. I'm rarely disappointed. Nicky Cruz was a gang member who tried to kill Pastor Davi ...
More books... Ever heard of Corrie ten Boom, David Wilkerson, or Nicky Cruz? How about Fritz Ridenour's book, How To Be A Christian Without Being Religious? The celestial table scene used to hang at the Slocumb's house back-in-the-day. Remember those Thursday night home group meetings and Kevin Metzler's teaching? The Armor of God booklet will look familiar to anyone who was ever a part of Lovella Harlow's "God Squad" group. The plaque just above it has an old thermometer and thermostat attached to it, asking the question, "Are you a a thermometer or a thermostat?" (One merely reflects the temperature but the other one sets it...) That question still has some teeth in it...

The devil ain't playing: Gradually something is happening but we are blind to it and ita consequences. Jesus said to His disciples, "The kingdom of heaven is like unto a man who sowed good seeds and while he sleeps, the enemy came and sowed tares..." No nation in the world today is free from collapse of leadership. The devil is really torturing the existence of humanity. In 1986, Nicky Cruz was travelling from U.S.A to Australia and sat in a flight with a man who refused to eat anything served on board. Nicky thought that he must be a clergy. He asked him, "sir, are you a pastor? And the man replied, "satan forbid. I am a satanist. We have been fasting over a year now to collapse marriages in U.S. A and globally" The devil has a plan. Imagine today, there are more divorces in the church than there is on the streets. A phrase was once quoted, "The world has gone into the church, and the church have gone into the world" strippers are today our mainline choir members. Christians marry today and divorce tomor ...
Nicky Cruz (a notorious gang leader) – “You come near me and I will kill you. I do not believe in what you say, and now you get out of here”. David Wilkerson – “YOU COULD CUT ME UP IN TO A THOUSAND PIECES AND LAY THEM IN THE STREET, AND EVERY PIECE WILL STILL LOVE YOU. NO ONE CAN KILL LOVE. GOD IS LOVE”. This statement damaged evil in Nicky’s mind and heart, and became the conversation that lighted up God’s amazing rescue work among New York’s toughest gangs. As long as I live, that statement will live in me. “LOVE NEVER FAILS” 1Cor 13:8. The story is written in the bestseller book “The cross and the switch blade”. There is also a film adaptation of it. The following is from Wikipedia …In 1968, Cruz wrote the book Run Baby Run with Jamie Buckingham, telling the story of his life including coming to New York and being in the gang, and subsequently meeting Wilkerson and thereafter becoming an Evangelical Christian. Shortly after Cruz's ascension to leader of the gang, David Wilke ...

I need to make a comment about a good friend of mine and the newest books he has written. Fifty years ago a gang leader named Nicky Cruz was led to JESUS by David Wilkerson. For fifty years Nicky has told the story of how GOD changed his life all over the world . He has written numerous books that help encourage a changed life. His latest books are "One Holy Fire", "Soul Obsession" and his newest is "The Devil Has No Mother". These books are vital to encourage believers in this time of attacks on the Christian Faith. Good reading from a great man of GOD and growth in GOD is very important in these times.
PLEASE READ THIS: *** IS FOR REAL My name is Jennifer Perez and I'm 15 years old. It's hard for a teenager like me to come to you and recognize my own mistakes. But with the help of the Holy Spirit, He will help me, and give me the strength I need. First of all I want to say that this is for the Honor and Glory of my Lord Jesus Christ. I don't want to say any doctrine or make up any new doctrine; I'm only going... to tell you what I saw, what I heard, and what I experienced. I'd like to tell you a little bit about my family. My parents are Christians, and they always taught me good examples, and the way of the Lord. I became a Christian 3 years ago, when I accepted the Lord with the brother Nicky Cruz. I walked in the ways of the Lord for 2 years. But when I started High School, I started getting rebellious and left the way of the Lord. I was rebellious to my parents and I got into drugs. My friends taught me to do those things. I thought I was a Christian, and that I would bring my friends to be Christi ...

With American Idol debuting, do you think we will ever see Madonna be a guest mentor on any of the US reality TV shows?
I would rather see Carrie Underwood & Jennifer Hudson as idol judges. Carrie knows what its like from start to finish & j-Hud is the best motivation for people, she didn't win & she is a super star!! She would give everyone hope for big things regardless of winning. Mariah Carey has a "forever" factor but she doesn't seem like she would truly understand the contestants. She had to work for what she had, she wasn't gifted her music career. Nicki Minaj has a "now" factor, she hasn't been in the game long enough, maybe a couple more albums or a few more grammys under her belt and then she can judge. I love all 4 of the ladies i mentioned and they will always have an album in rotation in my house

One of my favorite testimonies from Nicky Cruz, former gang leader in New York City. Nicky Cruz gave his life to Christ after a encounter with a skinny white Holy Gost filled preacher : ) "David Wilkerson knew the danger but he came anyway! As he started to talk about God, I said: "Aah, give up you’re a nutcase! He’s totally mad, he’s lost the plot! No one had ever stood up to me in theses streets and here came a man with a black book which he called the bible, and wants me to take it in!" When he did not want to give up I screamed: "Be quiet you, I am God! This here is people power, ghetto power and that is gang power! God doesn’t have anything to do with us and we don’t want anything to do with him. See that you get out of here and don't ever come back!" Then I asked one of my pals: "Do you want to have some fun? I'll give you what you need. We'll go down to the basement, smoke some weed, drink wine and pop a couple of pills. Then we'll get a girl for the night and forget this nutter altogethe ...

Holy fire, God is an all cosuming fire, John the baptist said that Yeshua would baptize with the Holy Spirit and fire, Nicky Cruz wrote a book called Holy Fire, Dr Michael L Brown ministry is called Fire School of Ministry and his radio show is called The Line of Fire, the Jewish Yeshiva in Jerusalem at the Western Wall is called Esh HaTorah (fire of Torah). This is a good fire, like light, like love, like the Spirit of God that was on the music of David the ancient worshiper and king in that order of the ancient Jewish nation. It was fire that protected Elijah from Jezebel and her military, the angels are descibed as flames of fire, this holy divine fire of the Spirit of God Almighty engulfs you like a full submersion water baptism so that it is fulfilled the words of John the water baptizer, that Yeshua, baptizes all who ask and seek, this full immersion baptism into the Spirit and fire of God the Eternal One!

'Spiritual warfare is not about sitting in your room with a scowl on your face, buffeting your body and claiming dominion over temptation. It's not about wandering the neighbourhood with holy water, trying to bind the enemy. It's about living each and every moment in the grace and mercy of God. It's about letting the Spirit move you where you can do the most good. Most of all, it's about telling others of God's marvellous love and grace. He's the only one who can bring fulfilment to your life. This is where the battle is fought. This is where the supernatural war for souls is being played out. This is how you beat back the devil!' Nicky Cruz
Many of those who survived became Christian Missionaries spreading the Gospel all over the world with their Testimonies - The most famous was Nicky Cruz.
The apostle Paul went from throwing Christians into prison to leading non-Christians into the Kingdom of God.John Newton went from being a slave tradr to being a pastor and hymn writer.Nicky Cruz went from being a New York City gang member to being a street evangelist for Christ.The late Chuck Colson went from White House hatchet man to prison evangelist and apologist.Meeting Christ always results in life change,but sometimes change is radical.Mary,from the Galilee town of Magadala,for example,We know little about her pre Christian life except that she was possessed by seven demonic spirits,from which Jesus delivered her.Sometimes,we don't like change-until we see the changes for the better...take a moment to thank God every day for the postive changes you've seen in your life since meeting Christ.The scriptures were not given to increase our knowledge but to change our lives.IN TOUCH...make someone smile today...it will...make...your day...
What a blessing to meet the man that literally led me to The Lord 26 years ago in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. It was during the TBN program that I mistakenly opened, excellent mistake, that I asked Jesus into my heart after tuning into 84 channels and every one was TBN. Nicky Cruz was an instrument used by the Lord to give me life and life in abundance and detour the *** that was waiting, Glory to God! It does not get any better than this.
What an awesome man! God gives us warnings but we think we know it all!how sad. That we don't obey our Creator. The time is now! D

A lot of churches today would feel more at home in a movie house, rather than in a house of prayer. More afriad of Holy living than of sinning. Knowing more about money than magnifying Christ in our bodies. It is so compromised, that Holiness and living a sin free life is heresy to the modern church. The modern church is, quite simply, just the world, with a Christian T-shirt on!" (Nicky Cruz). This is true! I'm beginning to think there's something seriously wrong with many of the modern churches today. I know I said I like the "Pursuit", and I do love their "Spoken" message, but their unspoken message really concerns me. They refer to the Sanctuary as the Auditorium and don't mind if you bring your dinner in there while listening to the sermon. Several of the people went out after the service and lit up a cigarette right there. . I understand we are to reach those who normally wouldn't set foot in a church, but where is the "RESPECT" for God's House of Worship that is SUPPOSED to be HOLY?

David Wilkerson, founder of Teen Challenge and Nicky Cruz, a lead gang member in New York who was radically saved through Wilkerson's ministry, was an influence in my life as a teenager. Cross and the Switchblade, book/movie about them was popular then. We had former pastors visit us this weekend and they brought me a picture of our youth group when I was 14. I'm standing by Nicky Cruz. We attended Teen-Round Ups in Duncan, Okla. where he spoke not long after he was saved. So thankful for people who influence the lives of youth. Pray God helps me be an influence as a pastor and provide other areas of ministry to help our youth. Darin Poe / Bradly Keller - Carpenter's House Church Willard attending Youth Convention 2012. Thank you both for what you do!

From Terrorist to Evangelist For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live. Rom. 8: 13. Shortly before the downfall of Communism, when the Soviet-controlled nations of Eastern Europe brought together more than 3, 500 government officials, social workers, and medical personnel for a drug abuse conference in Budapest, they invited Nicky Cruz to be their main speaker. Nicky had been a leader in the dreaded Mau Mau gang in New York City and had terrorized whole neighborhoods, but through the power of the Holy Spiirt, this Puerto Rican youth had become a mighty witness to God's saving grace. It seemed that Nicky was destined to an early death, just as he had beaten and killed others on the streets. After one of his many arrests he was told by a court psychiatrist that unless he changed, he was on a "one-way street to jail, the electric chair, and *** " Nicky, who was 18 at the time , only laughed (One Who Believe ...
On our way to Times Square Church. A little bit of history... This church was founded by Pastor David Wilkerson. Through Wilkerson was that former Gang leader Nicky Cruz accepted Jesus and his life was transformed. Cruz has an amazing testimony which is fascinating and entertaining. "Run baby Run " is the book that recounts the life of Nicky Cruz and his life transformation. There was also a movie made after this book. God gave me and my friends the privilage to meet Cruz about 10 years ago when he came to preach one sunday. If you hadnt heard of this awesome testimony, you should either read the book or watch the movie to see what the power of God's love can do!!!
Enjoy! The music from the Nicky Cruz service at the California theater Victory Outreach San Bernardino

When you first listen, you think what in the world? However by the end you recognize the precious redeeming love of Jesus. You read the newspapers and observe the news, you recognize these neighborhoods and know that these are where the killings took place this past year, the pimps, the prostitutes, the drugs.but right in the middle of darkness there is the bringing of light (God's love).The older gentleman with dark black glasses is Nicky Cruz.he was once a run away kid from Puerto Rico, sent to New York, notorious gang leader, but God changed his life and for over 52 years, he still goes to the streets, the neighborhoods and shares the truth that darkness and hate can be exchanged for truth and light found only in God's redeeming love, Jesus. Large meeting at Pike's Peak Center this coming Sat. at 7p.m. to share and celebrate the impact of God's love.
David Wilkerson's life story, how God called him to preach to gangs in New York. Tells the true story of how Nicky Cruz and his partners came to know Jesus.
Before preaching the gospel all over the world, Nicky Cruz ran the city streets with a violent gang. He had no hope until a preacher chose to love him no matter what.
why does Nicky Cruz look like the. nutty professor from the 60's

Cleve Walker will minister! Cleve Walker received Christ at the tender age of 12 and by the time he was 13 was involved in public preaching engagements in churches around his hometown of Jackson, MS. While in college at Shaw University in Raleigh, North Carolina, Cleve was baptized in the Holy Spirit and began ministering on various college campuses around North Carolina. It was during this time he led his first convert to Christ, a young lady who was also a student at the same college he attended. Her name was Barbara Burgess. Two and half years later, Barbara and Cleve were married in Raleigh, North Carolina. After leaving college in 1974, Cleve served as a full time resident drug rehab counselor at the Nicky Cruz home for Boys in Fayetteville, ...
Bible Bad Boys: Saul of Tarsus Now Saul was consenting to [Stephen's] death.Acts 8:1a When we read the stories of bad men gone good--like the English slave trader, John Newton, or the New York street gang leader, Nicky Cruz, who both became champions for Christ--we are amazed. But we are amazed because we think bad men just decided to be good, that it was their idea, accomplished in their own strength. Nothing could be further from the truth--and one of the "baddest" boys in the Bible, Saul of Tarsus, proves the point. Before he became the apostle Paul, Saul of Tarsus had a warped sense of morality. He was an Old Testament scholar who thought that killing innocent people (followers of Jesus) was pleasing to God. Saul's life was changed over a three-day period following a radical confrontation with the same Jesus he was persecuting. Blind during that period, he spent 72 hours considering the fact that the Jesus he hated had just called him into His service (Acts 9:18-20). Saul was supernaturally redeemed, ...
