An Inspiring Testimony: From the Dairy of Christopher Columbus
http://endtimepilgrim.org ^ | Columbus's Book of Prophecies

Posted on 09/07/2013 8:18:54 PM PDT by NKP_Vet

"It was the Lord who put it into my mind, (I could feel His hand upon me), the fact that it would be possible to sail from here to the Indies. All who heard of my project rejected it with laughter, ridiculing me. There is no question that the inspiration was from the Holy Spirit, because He comforted me with rays of marvelous inspiration from the Holy Scriptures.......

I am a most noteworthy sinner, but I have cried out to the Lord for grace and mercy, and they have covered me completely. I have found the sweetest consolation since I made it my whole purpose to enjoy His marvelous Presence.

For the execution of the voyage to the Indies, I did not make use of intelligence, mathematics or maps. It is simply the fulfillment of what Isaiah* had prophesied......

No one should fear to undertake any task in the name of our Savior, if it is just and if the intention is purely for His holy service. The working out of all things has been assigned to each person by our Lord, but it all happens according to His sovereign will, even though He gives advice. Oh, what a gracious Lord, who desires that people should perform for Him those things for which He holds Himself responsible! Day and night, moment by moment, everyone should express their most devoted gratitude to Him."

- from "Columbus's Book of Prophecies". This book is only available in Spanish. It has never been published in the English speaking world. Some excerpts have been privately translated into English by August J. Kling. He quoted the passage above from Columbus's diary in an article which appeared in the October 1971 issue of "The Presbyterian Layman".

Except that he didn't really get to the Indies (India), feeling hands notwithstanding.

Maybe the Lord, in his generosity, just let him think that he did :)

Is there a lesson in there somewhere?

I thought private revelation was a ‘No No’ among the reformed set.

I read none of this in my government-approved history textbook, so did it happen?

He sounds as if he is describing The Born Again experience. It would certainly be a blessing. And, then there are those who believe that he was looking for a new homeland for the Jewish people. But he still sounds Born Again.

If he had, maybe your ancestors would've converted by now.

In 14 hundred 92

Columbus sailed the ocean blue

He penned his journey upon a cow

His dyslexic first-mate became the bough...

Not nearly as likely as his (and your) ancestors bowing to Mecca if the Moors had pushed north a little sooner.
