St. Valentine-- Minister and Martyr for Jesus Christ - AD 270 -- By Kathie Walters

Note from Steve Shultz:

Many Holidays, including Valentine's Day, have an important and Spiritual "Jesus-Christ-Originated" purpose. Isn't it sad how the enemy has tried to cover up the memory of many of the Saints of God, in order to steer our thinking away from what great men and women of God did in the name of Jesus Christ. I'm taking my wife out for Valentine's day. You probably should too, men. But keep in mind that on Feb. 14, a mighty man of God was martyred for Jesus Christ. His name was "Valentine."

Many of Kathie Walter's other books on other such church history, including her Celtic Research can be found below and at: http://www.elijahshopper.com/

St Valentine - Minister/Priest in Rome. AD - 270

Valentine, along with Marius and his family helped and served the Christians who were martyred under the persecution of Claudius 11.

Eventually he stirred up the wrath of Claudius and he himself was arrested and sent by the emperor to the Prefect of Rome.

The prefect tried to make him recant of his faith by promising all kinds of favors. When these had no effect on Valentine and he insisted that Christ was the only way and continued to condemn the idols, he commanded him to be beaten with clubs, and afterwards to be be-headed.

Jailer's Daughter Healed!

He refused to retract his praise of Christ when he was beaten and went gladly to prison. It was said that during his stay in prison he prayed for the jailer's daughter, who was blind. She was healed and when Valentine went to the executioner for execution on 14th Feb, he left her a farewell note of encouragement - "From Valentine."

His name is celebrated as that of a godly servant and martyr in many martyrologies.

Some early church pastors made an attempt at abolishing a custom on 15th February. The boys would draw the name of a girl in honor of the goddess Februata Juno and the Pastors replaced the names and put a list of revered Christians there instead -

So our St. Valentines day seems to be a bit of a mixture. So guys instead of buying a card for your wife/sweetheart every year, buy one every week, along with a huge bunch of roses and DO THE DISHES!

Note: Julius is said to have built a church in his honor near Ponte Mole and gave name to the gate now called, Porta Del Popolo, formerly Porta Valentini. His remains are now in the church of St. Praxedes.

Every Blessing,

"Celtic Flames"
by Kathie Walters
$7.99 Book
Kathie believes that the courage and boldness of the early Celtic fathers of faith is meant to be imparted to us today. Their authority and power is a great example of the Christian life.

"Kathie in her book takes us far into the past and reminds us that God doesn't need flawless vessels through which to reveal Himself, only willing ones. This book is a must read for every believer. Those walking in faith and those needing to. I recommend it highly." - Iverna Tompkins

"Kathie Walters has an amazing ability in her writings to ignite a fresh fire in your heart. The fire of the Lord was lit in Ireland through a bold and godly group of men and women, as they gave themselves wholeheartedly to prayer and ministry. Kings and rulers were won because of them and the fires were lit through there lives." - Suzanne Hinn

"I am confident that the life of these Celtic saints of old are relevant to us today. They fearlessly took their stand against all the hordes of hell, and laid claim to what they believed was God's territory." - Gwen Shaw, Founder, End-Time Handmaidens & Servants

"Columba - The Celtic Dove"
The Prophetic and Supernatural Ministry of Columba of Iona
by Kathie Walters
$6.99 Book

The purpose of this book is to encourage the present-day saints of God to press in and live in their spiritual inheritance.

Down through the ages, great men and women of God have demonstrated the fact that the life of a believing and dedicated Christian can change the world around them.

The Celtic Saints, such as Brenden, Brigid, Patrick, Cuthbert, Columba and many others, lived in a marvelous and powerful realm of the Holy Spirit. This book about St. Columba of Iona is filled with eyewitness accounts of his amazing prophetic gift, the miracles, which included the raising of the dead, and many angelic visitations, compiled by St. Adamnan around A.D. 692 - A.D. 697.

"For many years God has used the lives of godly men and women of the past to teach me. Columba was one of those who changed the realm in which he lived as he moved under the direction of the Holy Spirit. His story is relevant today as the same authority in the Spirit is available to you. May this book inspire and challenge you to a new level of faith." - Joy Strang, Strang Communications
