Here is a very rare piece of Christian memorabilia: an unused ticket to attend the Aimee Semple McPherson Revival at the Chicago Coliseum (USA). The revival ran from 16 June through 19 July, 1927. The back of the ticket says: "Don't miss one of these great meetings! Jesus' power falls! Sinners repent! Sick are healed! Seekers gloriously baptized with the Holy Ghost! A Gospel of power; old as the Bible; mighty enough to lift you to Heaven; personal enough to enter into your every joy and sorrow; powerful enough to heal your sicknesses; yet humble enough to get under the heaviest load and stand and knock for admittance to your Heart. All Seats Free. This admits bearer and friends to special reserved section."

Genesis 22:11-12 -- " And the angel of the Lord called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I. And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me."
Here we have a 1655 etching and drypoint from the world-famous artist REMBRANDT. He is generally acknowledged as one of the great etchers -- if not the greatest -- of all time. The title is "Abraham's Sacrifice", and it is part of the Wonders of the Bible collection. It shows the angel staying Abraham’s hand and stopping him from sacrificing Isaac at the last moment. It is a 19th century pull from one of Rembrandt's original copper plates. In the 19th century the plates became the property of the French publisher Auguste Jean and after him of the engraver Auguste Bernard, both of whom brought out new impressions. It is said that the Bible was Rembrandt’s most important source of inspiration. May God Bless You AND Your Loved Ones ... Today and EVERY Day! (Frank DeFreitas from Wonders of the Bible).
