There they were prayed
many tears. These tears were from the Ruach Hakodesh because those who prayed
knew the Scripture promise about sowing in tears and reaping in joy.
are hundreds of thousands of ultra-Orthodox Jews
and Orange County and Westchester County and also in Brooklyn who have no
copies of the Orthodox Jewish Brit Chadasha, either in Yiddish or English.
And as it was later explained to Guyanese ministers in Brooklyn, this would
be like the entire population of
not one Bible! And this Scripture famine is in the United States, right
here in the New York area!)
AFII Jewish Bibles were unloaded and prayed over, Phil and Linda Goble filled
their vehicle with the Bibles
the entire vehicle was full and they were literally sitting chest high in
Then, as the sun went down
over-burdened vehicle pulled creakily away from the building, Phil wondered
what divine miracle would come on
twentieth day of his forty day fast (Aug 11-Sept 21). It was a mild night
when Linda and Phil punched the electric window buttons and began tossing
the Bibles on Jewish porches and sidewalks
quickly drove along from street to street and from Jewish neighborhood to
on all night long until their throwing arms were as sore as Yankee Pitcher
What they didn't know was that, while the Heavenly King
was dealing with them, He was also dealing with a certain Yeshiva bocher, a particular Jewish man,
happened one day in the case of Ananias and Saul of Tarsus in Acts chapter
For on this very
Tuesday night September 1, 2009, the Heavenly King was dealing with this praying Jewish man who was on his face
in his apartment
in prayer just as Linda and Phil were going through his Jewish neighborhood

miracle happened. The next morning this Jewish man, got up and walked out
of his apartment door,
waiting for a divine appointment.
As the Jewish
man walked along he noticed all these books strewn on the sidewalk of his
neighborhood. However, he did not pick one up. Then he turned and walked
down a different street and soon saw
copy lying there on the sidewalk. He opened it and noticed that there was
a cell phone number on the
1 646 460 5971. Like the man who found the Pearl of Great Price, he went home
to read the Bible. In a few hours Phil Goble was talking to him on his cell
phone. This time it was not
but the Jewish man who was weeping. He wept and wept for a long time and
then prayed to commit

a video presentation from George O Wood.
Goble began studying greek and began translating the book of Acts from the
Greek in August of 1971, he did not realize it
until September 1 of 2009 for a "Saul of Tarsus" among these ultra-Orthodox
Jews to become the
that Mark chapter 4 speaks about. But thanks to the Heavenly King who uses all his
servants, for Galatians 6:9 came true on September 1, 2009. What does

do not lose heart."
