David Berkowitz - 10/18/2007
David Berkowitz ("Son of Sam" serial killer) wrote this to Joe Marcione, regarding Sovereign God and what it means in his life:
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I was blessed to receive your letter and the book by brother David Eells. Actually the book is a confirmation for me because of some personal matters that I now have before the Lord, and a major decision(s) I must make. The chapter titled 'God's Sovereignty over Signs, Chance and Confirmations' really touched home with me. Thank you brother Joe, for being obedient to the Holy Spirit's leading in mailing me the book...
Another blessing/miracle is that you seem to have sent this to Attica Prison. Attica is at the opposite end of the state. I left Attica in 1981. Imagine a piece of mail being forwarded after more than 25 years! Amazing! God has been more than good to me. He has kept me safe, healthy and spiritually fed. I will be sharing the book with my brothers here. We have a chaplain/pastor who loves the Lord. God is rescuing the perishing. He is at work behind these walls (Jeremiah 33:1-3)... Please stay in touch if you'd like.
It is signed "Bro David" with type-written "David Berkowitz" below the signature. He closes with Isaiah 12: (1) Then you will say on that day, I will give thanks to You, O LORD; For although You were angry with me, Your anger is turned away, And You comfort me. (2) Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; For the LORD GOD is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation. (3) Therefore you will joyously draw water From the springs of salvation. (4) And in that day you will say, Give thanks to the LORD, call on His name. Make known His deeds among the peoples; Make them remember that His name is exalted. (5) Praise the LORD in song, for He has done excellent things; Let this be known throughout the earth. (6) Cry aloud and shout for joy, O inhabitant of Zion, For great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.
Joe says he downloaded Hidden Manna and sent it to him, too.
