Radioactive fallout occurs in the
fourth step of a nuclear blast when the
gamma ray emitting grain-size par-
ticles fall from the mushroom cloud.
The first step is a bright flash of

onlooker. The second step is a searing
wave of heat, and following that is the
blast wave carrying flying debris.

outside an eight mile radius there is

The radioactive fallout weakens

'WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?'
Psalm 2:1 and Acts 4:25
Recently we advised a friend who wrote us to "HAVE A DIALOGUE WITH
GOD ALMIGHTY!" (if dialogue is a strange word to some of our readers it
means) "two talking together." Any one can do that. Why, we read a number
of times in God's Book, The Bible, where even the Devil talked with God.
Hope and trust you are not a member of the devil's family: If so, IF SO, have a
dialogue with the Almighty about cutting your bonds and setting you free. If
you love "the world, the flesh, and the devil" so much you do not want to be
set free, then consider "your latter end and the eternal curse" and ask God to
change your appetites and desires and put "The True Fear of The Lord" in
your heart to the place where you will "delay not, but make haste to 'Flee The
Wrath' to come!"
FAITH is essential and necessary to have a dialogue with God-"The
devils believe, fear and tremble!" Hebrews 11:6 tells us-"FOR HE THAT
COMETH TO GOD MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS, AND THAT HE IS A
REWARDER OF THEM THAT DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM." And Romans 10:17
tells us "SO THEN FAITH COMETH BY HEARING, AND HEARING BY THE
WORD OF GOD," and that is the reason that this Column urges that every
one read all of God's Word and get familiar with what it says as much as
possible, asking God and His Holy Spirit to be your TEACHER.
"UNBELIEF" will prevent or cut off a "dialogue with God!" In both the
fourth chapters of Matthew and Luke we have the account of Christ's
temptation by the Devil. The Devil quoted Scripture, misapplying it in order to
tempt Christ. Christ quickly cut off that part of the dialogue saying, "GET
THEE HENCE, SATAN: FOR IT IS WRITTEN, THOU SHALT WORSHIP JHE
LORD THY GOD, AND HIM ONLY SHALT THOU SERVE." And in Luke: "GET
THEE BEHIND ME, SATAN: FOR IT IS WRITTEN"-note how Christ fought
the Devil with what The Bible said, "It Is Written."
Without Faith you cannot have a dialogue with God. However, the Devil will
not only talk with you but also put his hook in your nose and lead you where
he wants you to go!
