MORE ARCHAEOLOGICAL CRIMES ON TEMPLE MOUNT

In the latest charge against the Muslim Waqf in Jerusalem, an Israeli group says a stone cutting machine has been brought onto the Temple Mount to cut new building blocks from ancient stones.

The Committee to Prevent the Destruction of Antiquities on the Temple Mount charged yesterday that the Waqf has brought a four meter-by-two meter stone cutter on the Temple Mount compound and is cutting stones taken from an ancient building on the site to prepare new building blocks. The report was released in a request to the High Court of Justice for an urgent interim
injunction. The court has set a date for the hearing of the Committee's petition, and an earlier petition by the Temple Mount Faithful, of April 3.

In its latest address to the High Court, the Committee charged that the Waqf "was perpetrating serious harm to the antiquities on the Temple Mount by sawing and cutting ancient stones to prepare them for secondary use in various building projects. During these days, it is cutting large stones whose dimensions are more than half a meter by half a meter."

The petitioners charged that the saw had not been on site earlier, and that it had to have been brought into the Temple Mount compound by a huge truck and a crane. "The new saw is causing enormous damage because of the unnecessary destruction of the ancient stones, some of which may have been used in the construction of the Holy Temple," the petitioners wrote.

This is not like destruction of those Budas in Afghanistan by the Taliban movement. This is not like the destruction would be of the Mosque of Omar or Aksa Mosque now sitting on top of the Temple Mount. The reason why is because only this one place is where the God of the Bible chose for Himself. It is only the Jewish Temples built on this one place that the God of the Bible called His House. Everything else in the entire world is man-inspired. Men may claim they build houses of God, but the Bible is very exclusive in declaring only one place, and only two buildings built on it as God's. Now the Islamic Waqf has decided to challenge the God of the Bible by destroying the artifacts of God's House for man-made Islamic purposes. God allowed the destruction of His former Houses due to the iniquity of His children, but this destruction by the Waqf is not of that sort. This is blatant desecration in full defiance of the history recorded by the God of the Bible. The end of this can only be judgment by the God from whom the stars of heaven will flee from His Glorious approach.

Police quell Temple Mount violence

By Baruch Kra
Ha'aretz Police Correspondent

Police showed great restraint in quashing violent incidents over the weekend in the Temple Mount area, mostly involving youths throwing stones and firebombs.

Trouble began on Friday after midday prayers, as Palestinians threw stones at Jews praying at the Western Wall. Security forces removed the Jewish worshipers, and despite having firebombs thrown at them near the Lions' Gate, police refrained from firing rubber-coated bullets.

Shalhevet's Funeral

by Judy Lash Balint

Have you ever been to the funeral of a 10 month old?  It has to be one of the most unnatural of human experiences. 

Maybe you've attended the funeral of a baby who died tragically from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome or some other dreadful disease --but the burial of an infant who was deliberately murdered by terrorists is all the more tragic for the baseless hate it represents.

Today, in the ancient cemetery of Hebron, Shalhevet Techiya Pass was laid to rest next to Torah luminaries such as the Sde Hemed and Reishit Hochma, and beside other Jews who were victims of earlier Arab hatred. Perhaps there are tombstones of other young children in the hillside burial place of the 1929 Hebron massacre victims, but there are no younger terror targets than Shalhevet buried there.

Bullet-proof buses brought mourners from Jerusalem along the tunnel road into Gush Etzion, past Efrat and through the deceptively peaceful rural Judean hills dotted with Arab villages and on into Hebron.  Men with black hats; knitted kippot; large, white Reb Nachman-style kippot and a few with T shirts tied around their heads, crowded onto the buses making room for young women holding babies of Shalhevet's age. 

This war on children with children shows just how depraved mankind is. It is proof we need a savior for it is beyond our ability to save ourselves. We can't save ourselves or the world from those who hate the Jew (and the God the Jew represents) so fiercely that they would sacrifice their own children. They are insensitive to child sacrifice as the hate rages in their heart. They almost rejoice with the murder of a 10 month old baby because it is a Jew. The complacent world sees just another day of stone throwing; another funeral in the Holy Land. No matter that the Jew praying at his most sacred site, the site God chose to call His own, is humiliated beyond what any other religionist would endue at their holy sites. The humiliation of the Jew at the wailing wall is greater then all other religious humiliation because it is humiliating the God of the Bible at the same time. The Jew has been the caretaker of God's House that sat on this site in the past when the land was in their control. Soon, God will see that His House will be built again on this site. It will be in preparation for the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ who will end all war. Children will be able to worship Him at this site never to fear what this generation has done with and to them.

Ps 127:3
3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
KJV

Jer 3:18-19
18 In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers.

19 But I said, How shall I put thee among the children, and give thee a pleasant land, a goodly heritage of the hosts of nations? and I said, Thou shalt call me, My father; and shalt not turn away from me.
KJV

Solar Flare Goes Off the Charts

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Forecasters said a solar flare Monday was the most intense they have seen in the current 11-year-solar cycle.

Space weather forecasters had to estimate its intensity, X-22 on a scale that only goes to 20, after sensors on a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration satellite could no longer measure it. They said the measurement could be off by plus or minus 2.

The flare caused static on radio frequency used to navigate boats and planes. Pilots in northern regions of the globe Monday were kept waiting for takeoff after the flare occurred at 5:52 p.m. EST, said NOAA space weather forecaster Craig Sechrest.

A solar flare is an eruption on the surface of the sun that releases radiation and particles toward the earth.

I'm looking up! Sun spots and flares are not new, but this kind of  intensity this time is. Human history is focused on the Temple Mount after almost 2000 years. That also is not new, but the intensity of late is. As I said, I'm looking up with greater intensity of late.

Luke 21:24-28
24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Another Jewish Baby Attacked by Arabs

On Tuesday afternoon, Palestinians from Khan Yunis launched three homemade mortar shells on the Jewish community of Atzmona, in Gush Katif, critically wounding a one-year-old Jewish boy. His mother was also injured while hanging out laundry with her child in tow. In response, Israeli helicopters and tanks pounded Force 17 bases and other selected targets in southern Gaza on Tuesday night, in the largest single operation of the six-month-old conflict.

Fifteen-month-old Ariel Yered was still in critical condition on Wednesday, although he had displayed what doctors called a near-miraculous stabilization after arriving at the hospital at death's door, with no measurable pulse or respiration. The baby boy suffered from multiple head and spinal wounds from the sharp nails shooting out of a mortar shell, and underwent neuro-surgery. His mother Lea was wounded in the chest and hand, another resident was lightly hurt, and four more civilians treated for shock. The attack came a week after Shalhevet Pass, a 10-month-old baby Jewish girl, was shot dead by a Palestinian sniper in Hebron.

Atzmona residents said it was a miracle that others were not hurt, as many children were playing only meters away when the 81-millimeter rocket landed. As soon as residents were free to leave their homes, they went to the synagogue to pray for Ariel and his mother.

PA RADIO BLAMES BABY SHALHEVET'S MOTHER FOR DEATH

A senior commentator on the official Palestinian radio station "Voice of Palestine" charged on Tuesday that Shalhevet Pass, the ten-month-old baby Jewish girl shot dead by sniper fire in Hebron last week, was actually retarded and was murdered by her mother.

According to a translation provided today by IMRA, the radio broadcast stated: "On the matter of the baby settler who was killed in Hebron a few days ago, we already said that her death was a fishy action and there is information according to which this baby was retarded and it was her mother who killed her in order to get rid of her."

TEMPLE MOUNT TOO HOT FOR ISRAEL'S HIGH COURT

Israel's High Court of Justice has told petitioners trying to protect antiquities on the Temple Mount from "archaeological crimes" by the Muslim Waqf that they should take their case to the government instead.

The Committee to Prevent the Destruction of Antiquities on the Temple Mount, a non-partisan group that includes many prominent Israeli doves, had charged in their petition that the Waqf was carrying out illegal and destructive work on the Temple Mount. But the committee withdrew its petition on Tuesday after a panel of three justices suggested they seek remedy from the political echelons. The court rejected a second petition by the Temple Mount Faithful after they refused to withdraw it.

The justices noted that many of the people signed onto the Committee's petition currently hold key government positions, including Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Internal Security Minister Uzi Landau, and said the matter should go through those channels before petitioning the High Court of Justice, which they can always do later.

The decision follows past precedents, as the Israeli courts have left sensitive questions involving jurisdiction over the Temple Mount to the executive and legislative branches. "We are not crazy," said the justices. "This court is not the address for such matters."

The official Palestinian radio, and all who support it are clearly the retards in my estimation.  It is sad that hate runs so high that such reporting is acceptable, and even believed by those who want to hear such lies. On the other hand, the Jewish Court practices pass the buck to avoid making any decisions about the Temple Mount. They are more interested in playing politics with the Temple Mount then seeking truthful rulings. It may be time for the children (who are paying the price for these Judges to pontificate) to make their own decision about how the Temple Mount should be administered. A new generation of Jews are needed to give the Temple Mount the respect it deserves. This older generation seems to have lost the vision if indeed they ever really had it? The purpose of all this dieing by children must have a Jewish solution. It must have a Biblical solution. It must in the end honor the God of the Bible who claims the Temple Mount as the site of His next House, the Third Jewish Temple. These babies should not be dieing in vain. The Temple Mount is center to all presently happening in the Holy Land. Passing the buck is not the way to deal with the Temple Mount.

Deut 19:16-19
16 If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against him that which is wrong;

17 Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall stand before the LORD, before the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days;

18 And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother;

19 Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.
KJV


2 Chron 19:6
6 And said to the judges, Take heed what ye do: for ye judge not for man, but for the LORD, who is with you in the judgment.

12 And he hath confirmed his words, which he spake against us, and against our judges that judged us, by bringing upon us a great evil: for under the whole heaven hath not been done as hath been done upon Jerusalem.

Forty Die in Stampede at Muslim Shrine

    Forty people were killed and more than 100 injured in a  stampede recently at a Muslim shrine in Pakistan when  pilgrims pressed forward to enter the "Behisti Darwaza" or  Paradise Gate at the start of a religious festival in the  town of PakPattan, in Punjab province.

    The festival is an annual event at the shrine of a 13th  century Sufi saint, Baba Fariduddin Gani Shakar, which  attracts about 500,000 devotees every year.  Traditionally  it begins with the opening of the Paradise Gate, which  leads to the saint's tomb.  Pilgrims believe that passing  through the gate will secure them a place in paradise after  death.

I guess I would push, shove, and kick my way through a gate if I believed it would secure me eternal life in heaven. This is the oldest ploy of religion. Man made false promises of eternal life with no Biblical authority. My dad had a friend who bought one of the stained glass windows that went into the new Cathedral the Roman Catholics were building in Chicago at the time. He also was promised - no, not promised ,but guaranteed by proclamation of the Pope himself - that he would go to heaven.  What a sad day it will be when all these religious promise dependers stand before Almighty God, and find their promises and guarantees are worthless. Religions can make claims such as, - go to this river, or go on that pilgrimage - but in the end the promises are as worthless as this passing through the Paradise Gate. The gullible followers will die for the empty promises rather then turn to the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible is not a religion. The Bible is truth.

John 14:6
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
KJV

Matt 1:21
21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Luke 1:31-33
31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:

33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
KJV

John 10:25-28
25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.

26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.

27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
KJV

Matt 7:13-15
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

SHARON SEEKS OPEN ACCESS ON TEMPLE MOUNT

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon appears determined to ensure non-Muslims have full access to the Temple Mount, ground zero of the Palestinian and Islamic confrontation with Israel.

The Muslim Waqf has closed the Temple Mount to non-Muslim visitors and journalists since last September, when widespread riots erupted following Sharon's visit there to inspect first-hand construction areas where alleged "archaeological crimes" were taking place.

Prior to that time, Jews and Christians were allowed on the site, but could not pray. Jewish visitors had to go in small groups of two or three, and only then when escorted by a policeman and a Waqf guard. All visitors were also forbidden to take their Bibles up on the Temple Mount, since many contain sketches of the First and Second Jewish Temples, buildings that the Waqf denies stood there. .............

The Palestinian Authority reacted today by warning Sharon he is playing with fire, according to ISRAEL RADIO. The Gaza headquarters of PLO chief Yasser Arafat issued a statement cautioning that Sharon's order would "increase the cycle of violence in the region." Palestinian officials and Muslim clerics have denied that Jews have any historical or religious link to the site. ...........

[Editor's Note: Actually, the Temple Mount is revered as an important biblical site by most Christians, as evidenced by the fact that the vast majority of Christian pilgrims to the Holy Land visit there while in Israel. Besides the significance of the Temple in the Tanakh or Hebrew Bible, more events recorded in the New Testament occurred on the Temple Mount than any other single place mentioned in Scripture.]

Meanwhile a commission originally appointed by former prime minister Ehud Barak concluded its deliberations and recommended this week that the Israeli government work "secretly" to reinforce Jordan's historic custodial role on the Temple Mount. Since the Oslo Accords of 1993, the Waqf has been under the influence of the PA, and has since cut off contact with Israeli authorities, including the Antiquities Authority, with which it had cooperated in the past.

The commission's report also recommended the government use sanctions and pressure to force the Islamic Movement in Israel to cease financing Waqf construction work on the site, to restrict Muslim visits, and to force the PA to cease its support for construction work that is causing archaeological damage.

"Playing with fire" is what Israel is threatened with when it claims it's rightful control of the Temple Mount. This is still a secular Israel (not the Biblical oriented Israel that will have the real rights to the Temple Mount) that is stirring the pot, but of all the other secularized religions involved - it is Israel with the greatest Biblical claim. The Moslems are completely out, and farthest from any Biblical claims. Ishmael and his mother are clearly rejected by the God of the Bible who can see the heart. God will soon raise up Two Jewish Witnesses and 144,000 Jews whom will all turn to the Bible, and build (in my estimation) the Third Jewish Temple on this same Temple Mount.

The time is getting short!

Read: Mishpat, -  This Place, -  The Second Woe, -  The Last Jihad, -  The Gentile Stranger in a Jewish Dispensation. You will find them Biblical, and eye opening.

 

Gal 4:22-23

Gal 4:28-31
28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.

29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.

30 Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.

2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:

3 And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.

4 These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.

5 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

Israeli rabbi calls on God to annihilate Arabs
FROM SAM KILEY IN JERUSALEM
THE spiritual leader of Israel’s ultra-Orthodox Shas party has come under attack for a Passover sermon in which he called on God to annihilate Arabs.

“It is forbidden to be merciful to them, you must give them missiles, with relish — annihilate them. Evil ones, damnable ones,” Ovadia Yosef was quoted in the Hebrew Maariv newspaper as telling a congregation attending prayers last weekend.

His party, which holds the balance of power in Israel’s Knesset and is a key member of Ariel Sharon’s national unity coalition, moved quickly to clarify his remarks, which included a plea to God to destroy Arabs. Yitzhak Sudri, the party spokesman, insisted that the rabbi was referring only to “Arab murderers and terrorists”, but Rabbi Yosef’s comments revived memories of his recent description of Arabs as “snakes” amid complaints that the Palestinian Authority was tolerating incitement, which both sides agreed to ban under the 1993 Oslo Peace Accord.

“May the Holy Name visit retribution on the Arabs’ heads, and cause their seed to be lost, and annihilate them, and cause them to be cast from the world,” Rabbi Yosef, a former Chief Rabbi of Israel’s Sephardi Jews, is reported to have said.

Yesterday Meir Sheetrit, a Cabinet minister from Mr Sharon’s Likud Party, said that Rabbi Yosef’s statements should be condemned. “A person of Rabbi Ovadia Yosef’s stature must refrain from acrid remarks such as these . . . I suggest that we not learn from the ways of the Palestinians and speak in verbal blows like these,” he said.

Yassir Abed Rabbo, the Palestinian Information Minister, said yesterday: “This is the third time that the rabbi has espoused openly racist views and neither his party nor his Government in which it serves has bothered to apologise.”

The first Arab Cabinet minister, Salah Tarif, a Druze and a former Israeli Army captain, said that it was “truly a pity that such things are said at such a difficult time in relations between the nation and Arabs both within the country and without. These remarks add nothing but hatred.”

 

I wonder if this is how I sound when I speak about the Arabs? I too am angry at the attitude that the majority of Arabs have against the Jew. I too am angry at the superiority and intolerance most Islamic Arabs blatantly exhibit against Israel. However, I do not pray God wipe them off the earth. God has already declared His intent for all Islam in the Bible. If Ezekiel 38 & 39 (a yet to be fulfilled prophecy) should take place during this present setup of the nations, it will be the end of Islam. It will be the last Jihad! The last invasion by Islamic Nations into Israel. I do not take some sadistic pleasure or self-righteous satisfaction in the end of these events, as I know God takes no pleasure in enacting Judgment not only on this generation of Islam, but all of every generation who reject His eternal plan of salvation in Christ. God will be fierce in His judgment on all who make a mockery of the blood Christ shed just outside Jerusalem so salvation can justly be offered to the lost of all nations who seek after it. Had these Rabbis read Ezekiel 38 & 39 with opened eyes, they would be calling for prayer for these same Arabs who are about to experience a great Biblical catastrophe. 

Ezek 39:4-5
4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.

5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
KJV


Rev 20:11-15
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
KJV

HAMAS CLERIC PREACHES JIHAD IN INTERNET CHATROOM

The spiritual leader of Hamas, Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, held an Internet conversation on an Islamic website this month that promoted suicide bombings against Israel and training the young for battle, while revealing that PLO chief Yasser Arafat was condoning Palestinian terrorists attacks.

According to the IDF, the exchange between Yassin and several other participants took place on April 1 on the website "Islam Online." Following are excerpts from that cyber-conversation:

Question: Do you believe that it is best to check the precise timing and location to detonate "Human Bombs" in order to cause the maximum number of people among Jewish enemy, military men and civilians [to die], and for what reason are you not drafting "Human Bombs" from among the Israeli Arab population?

Yassin: Indeed it is best to check the exact timing and location in order to cause a maximum number of soldiers and civilians of the Zionist enemy [to die], which is how our warrior brothers in the Az Adin Alkasam have been acting. However there is a difference between theoretical talk and actual operation because there are objective and self-restrictions that determine in many cases the timing and location. In regard to the drafting of "Human Bombs" from the 1948 Arabs, it has been considered. We have done this in the past and we will do this in the future, despite the pressures and psychological and social warfare waged against them, in order to prevent them from entering the Jihad and resistance arena.

INTERNATIONAL RIGHTS COALITION DENIES PA USE OF CHILD SOLDIERS

The international Coalition to Stop the Use of Child Soldiers claimed on Sunday that although young Palestinians have been caught up in the violence in Israel, they are not being officially recruited to fight.

On the opening day of a conference in Jordan to which Israel was not invited, the coalition issued a statement saying: "It is estimated that less than 1 percent of the total Palestinian adolescent population has taken an active part in the clashes with the Israeli forces and this has been confined to demonstrations and stone throwing."

Roy Mungoven, a coalition coordinator, added that, "Most of the children killed have been mere bystanders, in their homes or on their way to and from school." ..............

But there is much evidence that suggests otherwise, including a report issued last November by Palestinian Media Watch which was based on material broadcast by PA television and radio or published in Palestinian newspapers. The report verified that Palestinian children involved in violent confrontations with IDF soldiers during the renewed intifada are being encouraged to do so by Palestinian authorities, media, parents and teachers.

In addition to the findings of PMW, the role of children in the over six months of Palestinian fighting against Israel has been widely reported in the world press, and public figures such as US Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton and the Queen of Sweden have also criticized the practice.

And last summer, for instance, THE NEW YORK TIMES ran prominent stories on the military-style training of Palestinian youths from age 12 and up on how to throw rocks, make and throw firebombs and even how to handle and fire rifles. Most of the training featured in the series was conducted at summer youth camps run by Fatah, PLO chief Yasser Arafat's faction.

On November 9, the official PA daily AL-HAYAT AL-JADIDA published remarks made by Wajdi Hatab, 14, to his approving teachers and friends days before he was killed. "When I become a martyr, give out kannafa [traditional sweet
cake in Muslim culture]." The daily reported that after his death, his schoolmates swore they would carry on down the road of martyrdom.

Other issues of the same paper described similar comments from even younger children. On PA television on November 2, a teacher standing next to pupils said, "Our blood is a sign of our fighting for our precious Palestine." One mother was quoted as saying: "My son is not my son only, he belongs to his noble Palestinian people."

USA TODAY reported last December 8 that the Tulkarm Women's Union had written to Arafat: ''Our children are being sent into the streets to face heavily armed Israeli soldiers... We urge you to issue instructions to your police force to stop sending innocent children to their death.''

A British journalist wrote in the LONDON TIMES: "But can Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat control the children?... Since birth, Palestinian children have been pumped full of religious fundamentalism which promises paradise for those who die for the cause of free Palestine... Approving or not, the Palestinian authorities have done nothing to stop children playing with
their lives. Let's face it, dead kids make great telly."

The PMW confirmed that the PA pays compensation to the families of those killed or wounded in clashes, as does Saddam Hussein, King Fahd of Saudi Arabia, and other Arab governments and "charitable" organizations.

Israeli Ambassador to the UN Yehuda Lancry gave his assessment in a November letter to the executive director of UNICEF: "Chairman Yasser Arafat, who is ruthlessly encouraging the involvement of children in the violence, calls them 'the Generals of the rocks.' He would have the world believe that Israel, with its guns and helicopters, is waging a war against 10-year-olds with small stones," Lancry wrote. "In truth, however, the children... are used as human shields for the gunmen, bomb throwers, and lynch mobs whose faces have been totally obscured and invisible to the media."

It seems that the Palestinian recruitment and incitement of children to hate and participate in violence against Israel is also "invisible" to groups like Amnesty International and the Coalition to Stop the Use of Child Soldiers.


This is the world we live in today. The Islamic leaders openly proclaim murder of Jews for being Jews while they deny any culpability in this ethnic cleansing. They sacrifice their own children as they train them to hate, and kill Jews. They then put on a humanitarian face for the gullible through such peacenik organizations as Amnesty International or The Coalition to Stop the Use of Child Soldiers. It works in today's world where people will hear only what they want to believe. Striving for truth is not what most in this world want. Political and philosophical  agreement has become more important then the truth. They want the lie.

2 Thess 2:8-12
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

Moon to headline unity conference

Winston-Salem only N.C. city
on reverend's 50-city tour

By T. Kevin Walker, THE CHRONICLE

The Rev. Sun Myung Moon is slated to make an appearance here early next month as part of a 50-state tour to unite families and people of various religious denominations.

The "We Stand Together! Tour" is part brainchild of Moon's Family Federation for World Peace and Unification Church, a sometimes criticized sect Moon founded.

The tour has been billed as a celebration of faith and a call for reconciliation. It has been endorsed by an impressive list of religious leaders, of many different denominations, from across the country. Winston-Salem will be the tour's only stop in the state.

Local religious leaders like the Rev. Seth O. Lartey of Goler Memorial AME Zion Church: the Rev. Fermin Bocanegra of Iglesia Cristiana Wesleyana; The Rev. James Fullwood of Saint Mark Baptist Church; and Min. Mikal Muhammad of the local Nation of Islam Mosque have endorsed the tour and are taking active parts in promoting it.

*************************************

MOON'S NEW ECUMENICAL VENTURE

[Distributed by Way of Life Literature's Fundamental Baptist Information Service.

Michael Jenkins, President of the Family Federation for World Peace (the new name for Moon's Unification Church) and the American Clergy Leadership Conference (another Moon-associated organization), conducted the press conference. He noted that they are "on a mission to rebuild the family and to bring the body of Christ together." They intend to build a coalition of all denominations and races. He said, "There was a time when the different denominations had a purpose, but now God is raising up prophets to call upon the 12 tribes of the New Israel to be one body. Jesus is calling upon all denominations to come together, to break down denominational walls. There is a new dispensation. New things are being opened up." He said that
Moon is revealing new things, and that Jesus' words are being understood in new ways today. Another speaker at the press conference, a "Rev." Medina, said, "It was during a Billy Graham crusade years ago that I lost my denominational hang-ups."

Participants in "We Will Stand" include Southern Baptists, Missionary Baptists, Lutherans, Methodists, Catholics, Church of God, Christ of Christ, Apostolic, United Pentecostal, Anglican, and others. .....................

The "invitational committee and speakers" included the following evangelical and charismatic leaders:

Don Argue, President, Northwest College
Pat Boone, CCM singer
Phil Driscole, CCM entertainer
Kenneth Copeland, Word-Faith leader
John Corts, President, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association
Paul Crouch, President, Trinity Broadcasting Network
Wiley Drake, Pastor, First Southern Baptist Church, Buena Park, CA
Tony Evans, Promise Keepers speaker (now disclaiming his former support)
Jerry Falwell, President, Liberty University
Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham
Max Lucado, popular author, Promise Keepers speaker
James Merritt, President, Southern Baptist Convention (now disclaiming his former support)
Thomas Trask, General Superintendent, Assemblies of God

By joining this endeavor, these men were yoked together with a wide variety of heresy, including cult leader Sun Myung Moon; Roman Catholic John Michael Talbot, who prays to Mary; self-esteem guru Robert Schuller; and Jewish Rabbi Daniel Lapin.

Sun Myung Moon claims that Jesus Christ appeared to him in 1935 and commissioned him to establish the kingdom of God on earth. He started the Unification Church in Korea in 1954, and in 1971 he came to the United States. According to the strange Unification doctrine (the "Divine Principle"), Moon and his wife, who are called "the Heavenly Parents," were chosen to produce the kingdom of God on earth. Moon claims that God said to him, "You are the son I have been seeking, the one who can begin my eternal history." Supposedly, Adam and Eve failed to produce the kingdom because of their sin, and Jesus likewise failed to produce the kingdom of God because he was crucified before he could marry the perfect bride. Thus Moon was chosen to carry on the work of Jesus Christ. Moon claims that Jesus was born of an immoral relationship between Mary and the father of John the Baptist. Moon conducts mass weddings of interracial couples. He says that only when man and woman come together to procreate do they make a whole human being. In Oakland, California, last month, he said to the women: "If you don't give birth, you are disqualified as a woman" ("Rev. Moon Stirs Up Fans," Oakland Tribune, March 13, 2001). In Oklahoma City, Moon proclaimed: "I have been to the spirit world. I have met God." In Minneapolis, Moon interrupted his message from time to time and asked, "Do you feel grateful for Rev. Moon?" ("Rev. Moon still has much to say," Minneapolis Star Tribune, March 11, 2001).

Here is a small part of The Apostate Christian Church that will go into the 7 year tribulation. It is active, and growing in respectability. It will be this gospel message of unity that will be the theology of Tribulation Christianity.

Matt 24:22-26
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

25 Behold, I have told you before.

26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
KJV


Mark 13:21-23
21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not:

22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.

23 But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
KJV

These false Christs and the deceived thrive on the willing ignorance found in the Biblical weakness (both leadership and rank and file) of the Evangelicals and especially the Charismatics. Enough ignorance or money/fame motivation to unite is evident for me to question their personal salvation. My friend, don't be deceived by their false teachings. Don't be sucked into their false theology as they misrepresent the meaning of Ephesians. As they try to convince what they conceive as unity is pleasing to God.

Eph 4:1-6
4:1 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,

2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;

3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;

5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
KJV


Eph 4:13-14
13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
KJV

WAQF "CRIMES" ON TEMPLE MOUNT FINALLY ON UNESCO RADAR SCREEN

At Israel's request, a special UN envoy is being dispatched to Jerusalem to investigate first-hand persistent charges that the Islamic Waqf is committing "archaeological crimes" on the Temple Mount.

Pursuing an idea suggested in recent months, Israel filed an official request 10 days ago with the Paris offices of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization that an envoy be sent to visit the Temple Mount and conduct an inquiry into reports that extensive Waqf construction work there is damaging ancient artifacts dating all the way back to temple times. .......

For years, UNESCO has been sending envoys to Jerusalem to report on the status of archaeological excavations there, reports which were often highly critical of digs Israel conducted in a city which the UN body does not consider to be under Israeli sovereignty. The last such UNESCO mission was in 1998, and ended in rancor after the envoy at the time, Sorbonne Prof. Leon Pressouyre, came and left Jerusalem without meeting any Israeli officials. Grabar conceded that this mission was "very badly handled."

Since that fiasco, no more UNESCO visits were conducted because Israel and the Palestinians were engaged in direct final-status negotiations to resolve the fate of the hotly-contested site. More recently, the Palestinians initiated the current uprising, using as a pretext the late September visit by Ariel Sharon to the Temple Mount to inspect the extent of the Waqf
excavation work first-hand.

UNESCO has come under criticism in Israel for neglecting the Waqf activities, especially after UNESCO rushed a special envoy to Afghanistan last month in a fruitless attempt to try to get the Taliban militias to rescind their orders to destroy ancient Buddha statues.

In contrast, Hebrew University professor Dr. Eilat Mazar, an Israeli archaeologist who has led a public campaign to protest the Waqf activities, decried the UN's overall silence on events on the Temple Mount. "While it is the responsibility of the government of Israel to safeguard antiquities, it is UNESCO'S role to voice its unequivocal opinion against the ongoing
destruction of antiquities at the Temple Mount," she said. "The very fact that the UN has been silent for all these months while we have been sending out cries of alarm via the media over recent months speaks for itself."

Meanwhile, the secretary-general of the Organization of the Islamic Conference yesterday condemned as a "dangerous escalation" Sharon's recent instructions to Israeli police to open the Temple Mount compound to visitors from all religions. OIC head Abdelwahid Balqaziz warned in a statement that Sharon's decision is a "challenge to the Islamic nation and touches on its sacred religious sensibilities."

Hamas has also spoken against Sharon's declaration, calling on Palestinians, Muslims and Arabs to prevent Jewish visits to the Temple Mount "by all means."

Now the world politics are being brought to the Temple Mount seeking some solution to this little piece of property which the God of the Bible chose to call His. It is where He commanded His first House would be built to King David that was built by his son Solomon. Over time, Israel became too rebellious, and God withdrew His presents The First Temple (House of God) was destroyed by the Babylonians, and Israel lost the Eritz (Holy Land). A return by Israel under Ezra and Nehemiah resulted in Zerubbabel the administrative head and Joshua the High Priest build and establish kosher worship in the Second (Temple) House of God built on this spot. Later Herod the Great remodeled the Second Temple into one of the great wonders of the world. It was to this Temple the Jewish Messiah came (His House) to establish the promised Kingdom of Heaven. His presents was rejected by that generation of Jews (and the world with them), and again that House of God was destroyed this time by the Romans. The Jews were again sent into captivity losing the Eritz a second time. Folks, the Jews are back!!! This little piece of property is back in the news. World politics are never going to find the answer for this one little piece of property. God has declared in the Bible a Third House will soon be built here for Him (for His Son - He is coming again!!!). This Third Temple will be the first Temple with a throne! A throne for the King of the Jews where He will rule the whole world for 1000 years. The News folks of the world have no Bible training so they are oblivious to what is happening. Look to the Bible for what God is about to do with the Temple Mount.

Read: Mishpat, -  This Place, -  The Second Woe, -  The Last Jihad, -  The Gentile Stranger in a Jewish Dispensation. You will find them Biblical, and eye opening.

Here is a description of the prophecy of Ezekiel's Temple. The Third Jewish Temple (House of God) that the Bible addresses. A Throne for Jesus Christ the King, root of Jesse, father of King David.

\Ezek 43:7
7 And he said unto me, Son of man, the place of my throne, and the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel for ever, and my holy name, shall the house of Israel no more defile, neither they, nor their kings, by their whoredom, nor by the carcases of their kings in their high places.
KJV

Here is a description of what the Kingdom of Christ will be like for 1000 years. Here is what it will be like on the holy mountain where the Third Jewish Temple will be built.

Isa 11:4-12
4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den.
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.
11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
KJV

New evidence casts doubt on
global warming


Claims are "based on false data," international team of scientists says


by Robert Matthews


Fresh doubt has been cast on evidence for global warming following the discovery that a key method of measuring temperature change has exaggerated the warming rate by almost 40 percent.

Studies of temperature records dating back more than a century have seemed to indicate a rise in global temperature of around 0.5C, with much of it occurring since the late 1970s. This has led many scientists to conclude global warming is under way, with the finger of blame usually pointed at man-made emissions of such greenhouse gases as carbon dioxide.

Now an international team of scientists, including researchers from the Met Office in Bracknell, Berkshire, United Kingdom, has found serious discrepancies in the temperature measurements, suggesting that the amount of global warming is much less than previously believed. .......

It was the false reading of the air temperature over the ocean. They measured only the water not the sea-air, but reported the readings as sea-air temperature. Real science has now proved the false claims to global warming. The politics of environmental extremism is what has proved true.

The findings have major implications for the climate change debate because sea temperature measurements are a key part of global warming calculations. According to the team, replacing the standard seawater data with the appropriate air data produces a big cut in the overall global warming rate during the last 20 years, from around 0.18C per decade to 0.13C.

This suggests that the widely quoted global warming figure used to persuade governments to take action on greenhouse gas emissions exaggerates the true warming rate by almost 40 percent. The team is now calling for climate experts to switch from seawater data to sea-air temperature measurements.

 The invisible Y2K scare should wake up a brain dead public as to how easily they can be deceived. Global warming is just another such deception used by unscrupulous politicians to scare up votes, and make a new multi billion dollar industry for their friends. Soon the greatest deceptor of all times will come to this brain dead generation. They are ready for him. He is called the AntiChrist. He too will tell lies that only the brain dead could believe, and they will - just like Y2K and global warming.

Read my article about Dixie Lee Ray's book on Environmental overkill - What Ever Happened to Common Sense?.

2 Thess 2:3-5
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
KJV

2 Thess 2:9-12
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Happy Easter!

The Pot Calls the Kettle Black!

DEAN BURGON SOCIETY WARNS OF RUCKMAN ERRORS

Friday Church News Notes,
April 13, 2001 (David W. Cloud, Fundamental Baptist Information Service, P.O. Box 610368, Port Huron, MI 48061-0368, fbns@wayoflife.org) - 

In its latest news bulletin, the Dean Burgon Society  (DBS) warns about the errors of Peter Ruckman. The DBS was founded in 1978 for the defense of the Masoretic Hebrew Text, the Received Greek Text, and the Authorized English Version, as well as sound TR translations in other languages. The Dean Burgon News states: "We reject the Ruckman position of the King James Bible being 'given by inspiration of God' and therefore 'God-breathed.' We reject this 'double inspiration' view as erroneous and heretical. We further reject the Ruckman heresy that the King James Bible can upon occasion 'correct' even the Hebrew and Greek manuscripts from which it was taken, giving 'advanced revelation.'" Dr. Donald Waite is the President of the Dean Burgon Society. Its annual meeting is scheduled to be held at the Independent Baptist Church, Ramsey, Minnesota, July 18-19. Information on this can be obtained by calling 763-421-3050 or 763-323-7266, or by accessing the DBS website -- http://www.deanburgonsociety.org/.

The Dean Burgon Society and the above Brother Cloud are a microcosm of all that is wrong with claimants to fundamental Christianity this Easter Sunday. Here we see them withdrawing from the cultic Ruckmanits who also worship the King James Version of the Bible in ways similar to the Catholic's deceitful  worship of the Virgin Mary and the Saints. They take a truth and twist it. The Society distance themselves from the heresy of the KJV onlyism of the Ruckmanits only to make the KJV a brazen serpent in their own circles. They all practice the same sin of exclusive KJV onlyism (the worship of a single version of the Bible), but draw lines of separation from those of a different feather.  They freely throw around the charge of heresy, and I'm sure apply it as freely toward me and all others who see through their deception.  It is sad that the Dean Burgon Society twist the scholarly teachings of the Dean into a false KJV onlyism theology. Dean John Burgon taught the truth about the majority Byzantine Text type being better to the then challenging modern Westcot/Hort theory that a few older manuscripts are superior when scholars contemplate textual critical decisions while studying variants in the old manuscripts.  What the Dean Burgon Society has done is falsely twist Dean John Burgeon's truthful statements in defense of the Byzantine Text into statements of KJV onlyism, brazen serpent worship, of the single Textus Receptus Greek which roots KJV onlyism. The twisting of truth is their guilt, and the spin of good truthful scholarship to make it fit their false theology. They gather together the brain dead who can be hoodwinked into any deceitful teaching that will make them look and feel superior, and you have the fundamental Dean Burgon Society of this Easter Sunday.

Num 21:9
9 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.
KJV

2 Kings 18:1-6
18:1 Now it came to pass in the third year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, that Hezekiah the son of Ahaz king of Judah began to reign.
2 Twenty and five years old was he when he began to reign; and he reigned twenty and nine years in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Abi, the daughter of Zachariah.
3 And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that David his father did.
4 He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan.
5 He trusted in the LORD God of Israel; so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor any that were before him.
6 For he clave to the LORD, and departed not from following him, but kept his commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses.
KJV

John 3:14-16
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
KJV

Yes it is possible this Easter to make a brazen serpent out of even Christ. Many so called Christians are deceived. It is willing deception because they want to believe the lie. Be certain the Christ you worship this Easter Sunday is the Christ of the Bible, and not an impostor (aNehushtan)  - not the brazen serpent of man-made spin of the truth.

Russians create 'artificial human brain'

Russian scientists claim to have developed the first artificial brain with the same intellectual potential as a human.

The neuro-computer is based on the workings of the human brain cell and can out perform previous brain models.

It uses pioneering findings in neurophysiology and neuromorphology to produce a truly thinking machine, scientist Vitaly Valtsev has told the Interfax news agency.

He has warned of the potential of the scientific breakthrough, saying the new brain could turn into a Frankenstein monster if mistreated.

There is a Frankenstein predicted in the Bible. I always understood it's creation would be more of the supernatural then some man-created machine, but however it is created - it will be very real. This great explosion in technology has done nothing more then make mankind feel superior. Superior even to the God who created all things. This generation more then any other has rejected God. They reject God for science. They reject God for their own feelings of superiority. They reject God's morality. They reject God's Bible. Most of all they reject God's prophecy of how sinful, rejecting human history is going to go on to destruction. What this generation will not reject is the AntiChrist when he makes his appearance.

Rev 13:11-18
11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
KJV

Hamas: 100 'human bombs' ready to act against Israel

By Daniel Sobelman
Ha'aretz Correspondent and Agencies

Hamas announced yesterday that 100 of its activists were ready to carry out suicide bomb attacks against Israel targets to avenge the deaths of their comrades.

Thousands of Palestinians calling for revenge participated yesterday in Gaza in the funeral of Mohammed Yassin Nasser, 24, who was killed Saturday by an explosion at his home.

Referring to activists who were prepared to carry out operations in Israel, a senior member of Hamas told the mourners that the forces of Az a-Din al-Kassam, the military wing of the organization, could call "100 human bombs" into immediate action against Israel.

"The plan of the terrorist, Ariel Sharon, is intended to continue the acts of murder, bombings and house demolitions. This plan will not break the will of our people and will not stop the Intifada," said a leaflet distributed during the funeral procession.

IDF: Hamas man killed by own bomb
bA spokesman for the Israel Defense Forces said yesterday that Nasser had been killed while in the process of preparing an explosive device intended for use against an Israeli target.

A Hamas spokesman announced, however, that the member of the organization was killed when his house was hit by a missile fired by an IDF force.

Four other people who were in the house at the time were injured in the incident.

I wonder how many of these 100 human bombs are Arab children? I wonder how many Jewish children will be targeted by these Hamas leaders? I wonder how many bombs will go off prematurely, or miss the intended maximum kill plan? During Desert Storm it is sad but intriguing that more Americans were killed by one indiscriminant Scud Missile then were Jews of all the Scuds put together.  Remember the American Army barracks that Saddam hit purely by accident? That one missile killed more Americans then all the Scuds aimed at Tell Aviv killed Jews. Those missiles mostly landed in yards and empty fields. The few that did hit dwellings for the most part destroyed empty rooms. I would be very wary were I one of those 100.

Est 7:9-8:8
9 And Harbonah, one of the chamberlains, said before the king, Behold also, the gallows fifty cubits high, which Haman had made for Mordecai, who had spoken good for the king, standeth in the house of Haman. Then the king said, Hang him thereon.
10 So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king's wrath pacified.

Esther 8 

8:1 On that day did the king Ahasuerus give the house of Haman the Jews' enemy unto Esther the queen. And Mordecai came before the king; for Esther had told what he was unto her.
2 And the king took off his ring, which he had taken from Haman, and gave it unto Mordecai. And Esther set Mordecai over the house of Haman.
3 And Esther spake yet again before the king, and fell down at his feet, and besought him with tears to put away the mischief of Haman the Agagite, and his device that he had devised against the Jews.
4 Then the king held out the golden sceptre toward Esther. So Esther arose, and stood before the king,
5 And said, If it please the king, and if I have found favour in his sight, and the thing seem right before the king, and I be pleasing in his eyes, let it be written to reverse the letters devised by Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, which he wrote to destroy the Jews which are in all the king's provinces:
6 For how can I endure to see the evil that shall come unto my people? or how can I endure to see the destruction of my kindred?
7 Then the king Ahasuerus said unto Esther the queen and to Mordecai the Jew, Behold, I have given Esther the house of Haman, and him they have hanged upon the gallows, because he laid his hand upon the Jews.
8 Write ye also for the Jews, as it liketh you, in the king's name, and seal it with the king's ring: for the writing which is written in the king's name, and sealed with the king's ring, may no man reverse.

North Korea sends missile parts, technology to Iran

     North Korea sent a shipment of missile components and technology to Iran two weeks ago aboard a transport aircraft, The Washington Times has learned The components were photographed late last month by a U.S. spy satellite as they were being loaded aboard an Iranian Il-76 transport jet at a North Korean airfield, according to U.S. intelligence officials familiar with reports of the arms transfer. The officials identified the airfield as Sunan International Airport, located about 12 miles north of Pyongyang, the North Korean capital. The shipment is the second missile component transfer detected this year by U.S. intelligence agencies and is a sign Pyongyang is stepping up its missile- related exports. In late February, a missile shipment was spotted at a North Korean port waiting to be loaded on a ship for an unidentified customer. The transfer was delayed because the port was frozen.  That shipment included chemicals and fuel-related materials, said officials familiar with intelligence reports. The missile shipment that took place in late March included various components for Iran´s growing arsenal of medium-range and short-range missiles, including rocket motors and air frames for missiles. The shipment also included crates of documents that intelligence officials believe are manuals and reference material related to developing missiles. One official said intelligence reports indicate the missile components are intended for Iran´s medium-range Shahab-3 missile program.

The Islamic bombs from outside the boarders of Israel are being prepared. These missiles Iran is buying may be used for defensive purposes from their Islamic neighbors, but be certain Tell Aviv is the target they relish to hit. It only takes one finger to push the button that releases these missiles once set up and ready to fire. Who knows the magnitude of hate against Jews that will be behind the finger? Who knows how much restraint will be practiced by the one behind the finger once these new weapons are serviceable? Each day the woes of Israel increase. Each day another enemy gains the ability to exact it's hatred. The Islamic world is rushing to a final conflict, a final Jihad, a final solution to the hatred for the Jew.

God has another plan. Read "The Last Jihad" to find out what the final solution will really be!

Isa 17:12-13
12 Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters!

13 The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.

ISRAEL JOINED BY CHRISTIANS ON HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL DAY

As Israel prepared to mark its official Holocaust remembrance day on Wednesday evening, hundreds of Christians were gathering in Jerusalem to express sorrow for the tragedy of the Shoah, while a Palestinian newspaper called it a mere "fable."

Shops, restaurants, and entertainment facilities throughout Israel will be closed from sundown Wednesday, as the State observes it's Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Day. The official state ceremony was held this evening at Yad Vashem, while Israelis will observe a two-minute silence when sirens sound nationwide at 10:00 AM Thursday morning, in honor of their loved ones who perished in this immense tragedy.

But the Jewish people will not be alone in recounting such horrors. Hundreds of Christians are attending a repentance conference in Jerusalem this week, sponsored by the Evangelical Sisterhood of Mary from Darmstadt, Germany, entitled, "Changing the Future by Confronting the Past."

From April 17-20, over 900 Christians from more than 20 countries are gathering in Jerusalem to express regret for the Christian role in the events which led up to the Holocaust and to confess these wrongs to the Jewish people. According to conference organizer Sister Pista, the solemn gathering wishes to "admit the crimes we Germans have done, and all that
Christianity is guilty of for 2000 years...[to] cry to God for mercy." The main event will be a repentance service on Thursday afternoon, to which the Jewish community is invited. Among the invited conference speakers will be several Holocaust survivors. .......................................

According to a translation released by the Arab media monitoring group Palestinian Media Watch, the article states: "When Zionism cannot find an enemy to separate and repel the Jews, it invents such an enemy; and so was the case with the holocausts. Its need for it is imperative, even organic, required to fill its message with the drama needed to get it across. What is happening now is not just an activation of the Holocaust and its revival from ashes, but its reproduction and international marketing."


It is a smart move on the part of Christians to make peace and express regret to the Jewish people. All it takes is a quick look at history to realize God has His hand on the Jew. In my remembrance of the holocaust I pose the following question. Where are the Nazis??? They were here in 1943 when I was born - Where are they? They are in the same place as all enemies of the Jew find as their ultimate end. They are almost all dead now, and in hell. The movement promoted as lasting for 1000 years is dead as dead can be. I can spit in the face of the Nazi, and he can do nothing but lay in the grave. The leaders are all in hell where there is nothing but weeping and gnashing of teeth. They abide under the wrath of Almighty God. I ask again - where are the Nazis! Where are the Assyrians! Where are the followers of Haman! Where are the Babylonians! Where are Israel's neighbors who hated them in the past? Where are the Moabites! Where are the Edomites! Where are the Amalekites! Where are the Midianites? What ever happened to the Philistines? 

The Arabs, and all Islam is in deep, deep trouble. It will not be long before the world will ask: "Where are the Moslems?" Israel will soon be building the Third Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount, and the world will ask: "Where is Islam?" God has a final solution. The same solution the Nazi found to be their fate so recently.

28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.

Israel puts off UNESCO Temple Mount inspection visit
By Etgar Lefkovits

JERUSALEM (April 20) - A planned visit by a special envoy of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to investigate reports of Islamic Wakf construction work on the Temple Mount has been indefinitely postponed just three weeks before it was to start, the Foreign Ministry and UNESCO officials said yesterday.

On Wednesday, UNESCO officials in Paris received a letter from Ambassador to UNESCO Arye Gabai informing the UN body that, "due to the prevailing situation in the region, the mission would be postponed," Mounir Bouchenaki, the assistant director-general for culture at UNESCO headquarters in Paris, said yesterday. No future date was set.

Gabai's letter came just three weeks after an earlier letter he had sent, informing UNESCO of Israel's readiness to host such a mission.
******************************************

Senior Israeli leaders have since thrown cold water on the idea of inviting UNESCO, due to its past history of unfavorable treatment of Israel. For years, UNESCO has been sending envoys to Jerusalem to report on the status of archeological excavations, reports that were often highly critical of digs in a city the UN body does not consider to be under Israeli sovereignty. The last such UNESCO mission was in 1998, and ended in rancor after Sorbonne Prof. Leon Pressouyre came and left Jerusalem without meeting any Israeli officials.

Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon met on Wednesday morning with senior security officials for "an initial discussion" on the possibility of readmitting tourists and Israeli visitors to the Temple Mount. No decision was reached at the meeting, which was also attended by Internal Security Minister Uzi Landau and Jerusalem Mayor Ehud Olmert, though another meeting in a smaller forum is expected to take up the issue shortly.

Sharon has ordered police and security officials to find "an appropriate way" to readmit non-Muslim visitors onto the Mount. Entry has been denied to Jews, Christians and journalists since Sharon's September 28 visit there to inspect first-hand the destructive Waqf activity.

In the meantime, the top PLO official in Jerusalem, Faisal Husseini, has lashed out at the Antiquities Authority for opening a virtual reconstruction center near the Dung Gate, calling it "a further attempt to Judaize the city." The center, using the most ultramodern electronics, gives the visitor a conception of how the Jewish Temple looked 2000 years ago. It opened to the public this week.

More pass the buck. This time it gets passed to no one. It just fades away. The Islamic Wakf is so guilty that the investigation is a foregone conclusion that they destroyed Jewish Second Temple archeological remains. This is how the UN can be looked at for Jewish justice. The UN is always quick to condemn Israel for injustice toward Palestinians, but when Palestinians desecrate the most holy site of the Jews the investigation is just quietly canceled. The world really does not care what is happening at the Temple Mount today. The time is coming when the world will take note. Three and one half years into the seven year tribulation period the Anti-Christ will kill the Two Witnesses of Revelation chapter 11. He will desecrate the Third Jewish Temple which I believe the Two Witnesses will build and establish Biblical worship in.  The Anti-Christ will declare himself god to a world ready to follow. It will all happen on this Temple Mount that the world wants to avoid right now.

Rev 11:7-14
7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.

11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.

13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.
KJV

Dan 8:9-14
9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.
10 And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them.
11 Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.
12 And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.
13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?
14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.
KJV

Matt 24:14-16
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
KJV

Mark 13:14
14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

ISRAEL SMEARED BY UNHRC

Israel was singled out for special denunciation this week at the annual meeting of the UN Human Rights Commission in Geneva for its response to Palestinian violence in recent months.

On Wednesday, the UNHRC condemned Israel in a series of resolutions, including one chiding Israel for its "disproportionate and indiscriminate" use of force in the "occupied Palestinian territories." By a vote of 28 in favor to two opposed (Guatemala and the US) with 22 abstentions, the Commission "strongly deplored" the practice of extra-judicial killings carried out by Israeli forces, expressed its concern at the large number of persons who have been detained during recent months, and condemned the use of torture against Palestinians during interrogations. The resolution urged Israel to make every effort to ensure that its security forces observed international standards regarding the use of force..................

An entire session of the UNHRC conference was devoted to "Agenda Item 8 - Israel," while alleged human rights violations for all other nations were addressed in the next session. Due to Arab/Islamic opposition and other reasons, Israel has not been allowed full membership on the Commission.

Israel's Foreign Ministry rejected the resolution concerning alleged human rights violations in the territories as "not balanced. This resolution condemns one side while ignoring the continuing violence orchestrated by the Palestinians who chose not to continue peace negotiations after the Camp David Summit," it said in a statement.

"Instead of encouraging the Palestinians to resolve disagreements through negotiations, this one-sided resolution encourages them to continue the process of internationalization of the conflict, along with the use of violence and terrorism."

"Israel has been repeatedly unfairly singled out at the commission on Human Rights. The only agenda item devoted to a specific state relates to Israel and Israel alone. We are deprived of a the right to become a member of any regional grouping, thus we also cannot be a full member of this Commission," the ministry statement concluded.

Fairness when it comes to Israel is not in the UN's understanding. It is easy to see how the Anti-Christ will find a home at the UN. The same underlying anti-Semitism of the UN is what the Bible declares will be in the heart of the Anti-Christ. A basic unfairness that is so obvious to all, but the anti-Semite. They justify their position by standing with the majority. In this case, the majority is wrong. They've been wrong when it comes to Israel for a long time. They are ready today to fall right in line with the Anti-Christ when he comes on the scene. All the hatred of Satan for Israel and the Jewish Christ child will be found in the Anti-Christ and his brooding chamber the UN.

Rev 12:1-6
12:1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
KJV

Rev 12:13-17
13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
KJV

Excavations on the Temple Mount by Muslim authorities continue despite protests from archaeologists. The Israel Antiquities Authority can do little more than sift through the dumps containing the earth removed from the Mount. Their efforts have yielded numerous finds, including the fragment shown above.

Temple Mount Update
Excavating Dump Yields Lintel, Other Artifacts

Once again, politics and archaeology are entangled. The Jerusalem Post, in a story headlined “Rare Temple Mount lintel neglected by Antiquities Authority” (January 5, 2001), charges that a 3-foot-long carved stone fragment from the Second Temple period, found in January 2000 amid earth dug up from the Temple Mount and then dumped in the Kidron Valley by the Waqf—the Muslim religious authority that administers the Temple Mount—is languishing in the courtyard of the Rockefeller Museum, headquarters of the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA).

Depending on whom you speak to, the artifact is either so rare as to require immediate publication or is merely an interesting—but not revolutionary—architectural fragment that is being studied and will be published in due course. Archaeology student Zachi Zweig, a member of the Committee for the Prevention of the Destruction of Antiquities on the Temple Mount, told the Post, “This stone is the most important artifact ever recovered from the Temple Mount. It is part of a stately gate and it very well could have been from one of the entrances into the Temple itself.” But Jon Seligman, Jerusalem district archaeologist for the IAA, told BAR that the fragment is probably a door jamb rather than a lintel. While it could date to late Second Temple times, he says, it may also come from a later period.

If you have been following BAR’s coverage (most recently, “More Temple Mount Antiquities Destroyed,” September/October 2000), you know about the Waqf’s unsupervised digging on the Temple Mount since the end of 1999. Intended initially to create a large gateway to the underground al-Marawani mosque (in the area popularly called Solomon’s Stables), the work on the Mount still continues as of this writing. Last October, trucks again began to roll off the Mount, carrying earth from a former park area along the eastern wall of the Mount in preparation for paving. Archaeologist Eilat Mazar, a member of the watchdog committee, reported that 70 trucks were counted exiting the Mount in a two-week period this past December. No representatives of the IAA were permitted to inspect the work.

In mid-January alarms again sounded when the Israeli press reported that an open trench and a tunnel were being dug to link the al-Marawani mosque to a smaller mosque beneath the al-Aqsa mosque. An Israeli police spokesman visited the mount and denied the existence of a tunnel but confirmed that a trench, described by the committee as more than 120 feet long and almost 3 feet deep, has been dug between the al-Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock. Contrary to police denial of the tunnel, the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz reported that eyewitnesses, including radio journalist Danny Zaken, have seen electric lights in the tunnel and “an iron grill in the floor through which can be seen remnants of an old floor.”

The IAA has been hamstrung by the current political situation between Israel and the Palestinians. The Israeli government, ignoring its own antiquities laws, has allowed the Waqf to continue the Temple Mount construction without any archaeological supervision. Nonetheless, the IAA has a responsibility to study and publish the finds from the dumps. Seligman reports that sifting through the dumps in the Kidron Valley and elsewhere has yielded building blocks, pieces of thresholds, nails, organic materials, Second Temple period coins and large quantities of ceramics. In addition, he says, the Waqf has piled architectural fragments such as column drums on the Mount. These potentially important artifacts will likely remain unreported for some time in the storerooms and courtyard of the Rockefeller Museum. First publication of the lintel is slated for a preliminary report in the IAA’s Archaeological News (Hadashot Archeologiot), perhaps within a year. More complete publication in the Authority’s journal Atiqot will not come for several years. While the scientific value of the finds is limited because they have been removed from their context on the Temple Mount, they are nonetheless important additions to the sparse historical and archaeological data we have from what archaeologist Gaby Barkay calls “a universal asset” that is now being “irreversibly damaged.”—S.F.S.

The politics of the Temple Mount continue as secular archeologists, religionists, and governmental authorities all voice their opinions as to how it should be handled, or how it should be ignored. The Moslem Waqf are boldly claiming sovereignty challenging any and all to try to stop them.  Ignoring their blatant desecration  of Jewish artifacts (they deny any Jewish presents ever on the Mount so whatever they destroy can't theologically be Jewish from their view), only encourages them to even bolder assertion of Islamic rights. I am waiting on the Two Jewish Witnesses of Revelation 11 to make their claim of real Biblical sovereignty over the Temple Mount. The real Christian Church will step aside at the rapture. These Biblical Jews will in my estimation have God's authority to build the Third (Ezekiel 40 -48) Jewish Temple. They will soon boldly proclaim God's command to build His House (the third one) on the Temple Mount. I'm convinced all the Biblical prophecy about the Two Witnesses and the 144,000 faithful Biblical Jewish followers is near to fulfillment. It is not the secular religionists, archeologists, or governmental authorities, but the Biblical Jews who have sovereignty over the Temple Mount. I believe they are in the wings right now waiting on God to touch them, and give the command! I doubt they even know of their calling right now, but I honestly believe they are alive in Israel waiting for God to intervene. Waiting for God to exact His real authority over the Temple Mount.

Rev 11:1-4
11:1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.

2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

Muslim destroyers reach for the heart of Jewish holy sites

By Lachlan Shaw in Jerusalem

from: http://www.smh.com.au/news/0103/19/world/world10.html

The destruction by the Taliban of the two ancient Buddhist statues in Afghanistan reaches across into the Middle East and touches the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

As the Taliban were blowing up the relics of Buddhism, leading Israeli figures were trying to stop Muslims from destroying archaeological treasures dating back 3,000 years in Jerusalem.

It was a fatwa - a religious ruling binding on Muslims - issued by the Taliban which called on the faithful to tear down Buddhist statues. It was through a fatwa that the Mufti of Jerusalem just a few weeks ago laid claim to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, including the Western Wall, sacred to Jews.

The Taliban and the Palestinian Muslims share the belief that all that went before the rise of Islam 1,400 years ago is valueless and an affront to Islam. The decision to destroy the giant Buddha statues in Afghanistan was taken not by one remote leader, but by 400 clerics after months of solemn debate. Some opposed the move, but, once the consensus was reached, all swung their support behind it.

The Jerusalem Mufti said all the stones of the Western Wall belonged to the Muslims and had no link to Jewish history.

The fatwa in Jerusalem was issued as Israeli archaeologists, historians, writers and others increased a campaign to stop the Mufti's organisation, known as the Wakf, from destroying the site. So vast are the depths of the grounds beneath the Temple Mount that archaeologists are thought to have barely scratched the surface.

The Jews call it the Temple Mount because they believe it is where King Solomon built the First Temple, which was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar, and where the Second Temple was built and then destroyed by the Romans in AD70.

Muslims call it the Haram al-Sharif (Noble Sanctuary), and believe it is the place where their Prophet and founder, Mohammed, rose up to heaven to meet God.

In his fatwa, the mufti, Sheikh Ekrima Sa'id Sabri, said the entire area of the Temple Mount belonged to the Wakf. That included the Western Wall, which he said was the supporting wall of the Al-Aqsa mosque, sacred to Muslims.

The Wakf also owned treasures of the site to a depth of seven stories below and a height of seven stories above, he said. This was his answer to Jews who say the Muslims are causing enormous damage to the antiquities of the Temple Mount.

Who owns the Temple Mount??? I believe God will soon exert His authority, and it will turn this world upside down!

Is it not amazing that 4 of the 6 Sunday bombs blow up prematurely? They blow up before ever leaving Palestinian territory. The 2 which do get into Israel take a sad, but rather small toll when considering how large the death toll could have, and should have been. 50 people only slightly injured is very close to being miraculous.  I'm reminded of the low losses for the USA during Desert Storm. Such one sided wars are so unusual that it must also approach the miraculous. It seems to me God is sending a very clear message to Islam. I think their pride prevents them from seeing the reality of what is happening. They continue on the course of total destruction. Should Ezekiel 38 & 39 be a present day prophecy about to happen, it will be the end of Islam. A disaster greater then Desert Storm is about to overwhelm the whole Islamic world. It happens on the mountains of Israel as a blinded with hate Islamic Jihad invasion of the Holy Land takes place. God (not the USA) will exact His righteous judgment upon these hate filled invaders. It will be the end of Islam, and will open the door for the building of the Third Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount.

Bloody Sunday as six bombs rock Israel, Gaza

SPECIAL TO WORLD TRIBUNE.COM

Sunday, April 22, 2001

TEL AVIV — Two explosions hit Israel over the space of several hours, and four bombs were detonated in Gaza City which is under Palestinian control.

In the first bombing, a Palestinian suicide bomber blew himself up, killing an Israeli doctor and injuring about 40 others. The bomber was killed in the attack in the Israeli city of Kfar Saba on Sunday morning.

Authorities said the Palestinian, who was not identified, detonated the bomb he was wearing near a crowded bus stop, Middle East Newsline reported.

Just after 9 a.m. as a bus stopped to pick up passengers along a busy street in the middle-class suburb of Kfar Saba, police commander Yehuda Bahar said "a suicide bomber approached it and leaned against it while setting off a device." Many victims were heading to work Sunday, the beginning of the work week in Israel. Ambulances and rescue services rushed to the scene, and police sealed off the area.

"Everyone was hysterical. I saw people pushing to get out the back door of the bus and I saw the driver on the ground covered with blood," said witness Noam Baraket.

Mario Goldin, a 53-year-old Israeli doctor, was killed in the attack. Most of the 50 people wounded were only lightly injured, though a 14-year-old Israeli boy was badly hurt, a hospital said.

Hours later, a bomb exploded in the northern city of Haifa. A policeman was injured.

It was not clear whether Palestinian attackers were behind the bombing. Police did not rule out the possibility that this was a criminal attack.

On Sunday evening, four bombs exploded in Gaza City, controlled by the PA. A Palestinian was injured. Israeli sources said the explosions appeared to be the work of a bomber who was preparing to attack the Jewish state.

The bombings were the third in a week in Kfar Saba. A spokesman for Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, Raanan Gissin, blamed the Palestinian Authority for the attack. The PA denied any connection to the attack.

Meteorite crashes near mourning Jordanian village

AMMAN, April 23 (AFP) -

Residents of a Jordanian village attending a funeral got an unwelcome surprise when a fiery meteorite crashed down in their midst, one of them told AFP Monday.

"More than 100 of us were gathered Wednesday at sundown to bury a village resident when we saw a strange object that looked like a ball of fire," said Mohammed Nawaf Mikdadi, mayor of Beit Eidess, some 85 kilometers (50 miles) north of Amman.

"The meteor shot through the sky from west to east before a part of it came down a half kilometer (quarter mile) from the village, sparking an explosion and then a fire with four-meter (12-foot) flames for 10 meters (100 feet) straight," Mikdadi told AFP.

"The villagers thought it was a missile, but when we went to the spot there weren't any metal scraps," he said.

The mayor expressed relief the meteorite fell on a rocky area near Beit Eidess and not in a nearby forest, which could have spelled disaster for the village.

It is a small thing in the news today. The likelihood of seeing such an astronomical event is truly astronomical according to today's scientists.  A rare event made even rarer when I think of the likelihood of an all Islamic Village in old Moab gathered together for a death. All together at the cemetery when suddenly they all are given a small taste of  Biblical fire and brimstone. Again, an event that approaches the miraculous when looked at through worldly eyes.

Josh 24:9-10
9 Then Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose and warred against Israel, and sent and called Balaam the son of Beor to curse you:

10 But I would not hearken unto Balaam; therefore he blessed you still: so I delivered you out of his hand.
KJV

48:1 Against Moab thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Woe unto Nebo! for it is spoiled: Kiriathaim is confounded and taken: Misgab is confounded and dismayed.

2 There shall be no more praise of Moab: in Heshbon they have devised evil against it; come, and let us cut it off from being a nation. Also thou shalt be cut down, O Madmen; the sword shall pursue thee.

3 A voice of crying shall be from Horonaim, spoiling and great destruction.

4
Moab is destroyed; her little ones have caused a cry to be heard.
KJV

Jer 48:42-44
42 And Moab shall be destroyed from being a people, because he hath magnified himself against the LORD.

43 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, shall be upon thee, O inhabitant of Moab, saith the LORD.

44 He that fleeth from the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that getteth up out of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for I will bring upon it, even upon Moab, the year of their visitation, saith the LORD.
KJV

third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.

11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Independence Day celebrations kick-off tonight on Mount Herzl

By Dalia Shehori
Ha'aretz Correspondent

Israel's 53rd Independence Day celebrations will start tonight, when the state flag is raised to full mast at a national ceremony on Mount Herzl. Twelve torches will be lit by citizens who have been honored for doing voluntary public service work. Their selection underscores the theme of this year's Independence Day celebrations - "people who care: volunteering as a way of life." The motif has been chosen to coincide with the United Nations' designation of the year 2001 as "the year of volunteer work."

The fireworks display at the end of the Mount Herzl ceremony will kick-off holiday celebrations throughout the country.

Police beef up presence at Memorial, Independence Day events

By Baruch Kra


Police commissioner Shlomo Aharonishky yesterday approved plans to send large detachments of police officers to Memorial Day and Independence Day events throughout the country.

Aharonishky ordered police units to patrol, both visibly and undercover, in areas with large concentrations of people, and in regions bordering Arab communities. He also ordered the police to crack down on Palestinians from the territories who illegally reside within the Green Line.

Large detachments of police will monitor the country's main Memorial Day event, to be held today on Mount Herzl, and will also be present at memorial ceremonies at military cemeteries around the country.

The police say that they will enforce the Memorial Day law which requires the closure of entertainment and leisure facilities

A reminder on Independence Day



On the eve of last year's 52nd anniversary of Israel's independence, a bright light was dawning on the horizon. It seemed that after 50 years of struggle for survival, the current generation of Israeli citizens was on the verge of reaping the fruit of the enormous efforts of their predecessors, and stood on the brink of witnessing an end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Today's reality is disappointing. A row of fresh graves has been added since the last anniversary, testimony to the painful results of the animosity and suspicion which dictate the relations between Israel and its neighbors.

On its 53rd Independence Day, and on the Memorial Day which precedes it, the state of Israel is once again experiencing the existential problems which formed the foundation stone of its establishment and have accompanied it ever since. The past year has confirmed that not only do the results of the Six-Day War pose an obstacle to Israeli-Palestinian reconciliation, but also the remnants of the War of Independence.

May 14 is the official Independence Day, but festivities start today. It will be 53 years since 1948 when Israel against all odds became a nation again in the Holy Land for the second time. Never in history had a nation been completely expelled from it's home land, maintain it's unique identity, and return - not once, but now twice! Our generation is the generation of this second return. We are a special generation that is about to see God again dispensationally intervene in human history. God is about to change His way of dealing with man! In the past God used Israel. The Old Testament from Genesis 12 forward is Israel. More recently God used the New Testament Christian Church. That dispensation is about to end with the rapture! Israel has been brought back a second time to the Holy Land so that God's dispensational Biblical plan will continue.  The time is getting very short!

First God speaks to the mountains of Israel telling them to prepare for the return of His children. They are told to prepare to bring forth fruit to feed the coming return. Next God speaks to the dry bones bringing them back together again. You know! Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones! Or, maybe you remember the ankle bone connected to the foot bone? Whatever, dem bones are back!

Ezek 36:1
36:1 Also, thou son of man, prophesy unto the mountains of Israel, and say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the LORD:
KJV

Ezek 36:6-10
6 Prophesy therefore concerning the land of Israel, and say unto the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I have spoken in my jealousy and in my fury, because ye have borne the shame of the heathen:

7 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I have lifted up mine hand, Surely the heathen that are about you, they shall bear their shame.

8 But ye, O mountains of Israel, ye shall shoot forth your branches, and
yield your fruit to my people of Israel; for they are at hand to come.

9 For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto you, and ye shall be tilled and sown:

10 And I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, even all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be builded:
KJV

Ezek 36:22-24
22 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but
for mine holy name's sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.

23 And
I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.

24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and
will bring you into your own land.
KJV

Ezek 37:1-14
37:1 The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,
2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.
3 And he said unto me, Son of man,
can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.
4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.
5 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and
ye shall live:
6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.
8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and
breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them,
and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them,
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
13 And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
14 And shall put my spirit in you, and
ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.

Egypt set to buy Russian nuclear technology, missiles, spy satellites

SPECIAL TO WORLD TRIBUNE.COM

Thursday, April 26, 2001

MOSCOW — Egypt is negotiating for the purchase of nuclear technology, missiles and spy satellites from Russia in what is being termed as the most significant effort to acquire advanced Russian systems in more than 20 years.

In Washington, a U.S. official said the Cairo effort could mark a major change in Egyptian policy just weeks after President Hosni Mubarak visited Washington seeking enhanced strategic ties.

Another Islamic Nation and neighbor will soon be able to send it's hate bomb to Tell Aviv. The woes of Israel mount almost daily. The Islamic world is changing quickly in it's ability to administer hate to Israel.  It is only a matter of time before Saddam or some other Islamic fanatic opens fire on the hated Jew. The technology of mass destruction is quickly becoming the tool for the religious fanatic. Allah Akbar will not be limited to the individual human bomb anymore. The power Hitler had of destroying Jews by the millions will soon and again be available, but this time to Islam.  Egypt has a long history of viciousness to Israel. This is not a good news story for the Jew.

There is a greater danger to both Islam, and the secular Jew then a nuclear bomb. It is the righteous judgment of God!

Read about the circumcised heart in article "A Gentile Stranger in a Jewish Dispensation."

Jer 9:25-26
25 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will punish all them which are circumcised with the uncircumcised;

26 Egypt, and Judah, and Edom, and the children of Ammon, and Moab, and all that are in the utmost corners, that dwell in the wilderness: for all these nations are uncircumcised, and all the house of Israel are uncircumcised in the heart.
KJV


Ezek 30:6-8
6 Thus saith the LORD; They also that uphold Egypt shall fall; and the pride of her power shall come down: from the tower of Syene shall they fall in it by the sword, saith the Lord GOD.

7 And they shall be desolate in the midst of the countries that are desolate, and her cities shall be in the midst of the cities that are wasted.

8 And they shall know that I am the LORD, when I have set a fire in Egypt, and when all her helpers shall be destroyed.
KJV


Ezek 32:15-16
15 When I shall make the land of Egypt desolate, and the country shall be destitute of that whereof it was full, when I shall smite all them that dwell therein, then shall they know that I am the LORD.

16 This is the lamentation wherewith they shall lament her: the daughters of the nations shall lament her: they shall lament for her, even for Egypt, and for all her multitude, saith the Lord GOD.
KJV

 

Friday - April 27, 2001

This is a long news item, but worth the reading because it confirms why God has the same final solution for Islam as He had for the Nazis. And, not just the Nazi, but all other hate filled nations of the past bent on killing off the Jews.

TEHRAN BASH CALLS FOR JIHAD TO CRUSH ISRAEL

A pro-Palestinian gathering in Tehran has turned into a frenzied showcase of the who's who of extremist Islamic terrorist factions, sitting side-by-side with government representatives from more than 30 Muslim countries, all clamoring to outstrip each other in their rabid calls for an all-out "holy war" to wipe Israel off the map.

Iran's militant ruling clerics are hosting the two-day conference in support of the violent Palestinian intifada, an event that has drawn hundreds of Arab/Muslim officials alongside the chiefs of numerous terrorist groups with differing ideologies, but a unifying hatred of Israel and Jews.

Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei opened the conclave on Tuesday by charging that Zionists exaggerated the Holocaust to justify crimes against Palestinians. "There is evidence which shows that Zionists had close relations with German Nazis and exaggerated statistics on Jewish killings to solicit international sympathy and lay the grounds for the occupation of
Palestine and justify the atrocities of the Zionists," Khamenei insisted.

"There is even evidence on hand that a large number of non-Jewish hooligans and thugs of eastern Europe were forced to migrate to Palestine as Jews," Khamenei continued. "The purpose was to install in the heart of the Islamic world an anti-Islamic state under the guise of supporting the victims of racism and to create a rift between the East and the West of the Islamic world."

Khamenei declared that combat, not dialogue, is the only language Israel understands, and called on the rest of the Moslem world to support the Palestinians, even if that meant defying the US and the West. "Supporting the Palestinian people is one of our important Islamic duties," Khamenei asserted. "The strength of Islamic resistance lies in its ability to wreak crushing blows against Israeli actions, and not in relying on diplomatic efforts and mediation of others."

As Khamenei finished speaking, top Hizb'Allah cleric Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah rushed to kiss his hand, and later rose to deliver a similar address vilifying Israel. He warned, "The fully armed Zionist military should wait for surprise attacks by Palestinian resistance group... Victory belongs to us," Nasrallah said to applause.

Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal chimed in with an appeal for political, financial and military support for "the Palestinian resistance." And Islamic Jihad head Abdullah Ramadan Shalah brayed, "The only option is jihad...Muslim countries must unite against Israel and force it to recognize the rights of Palestinians." ........................

Among those attending the Tehran bash are parliamentary leaders from more than 30 Islamic countries - including Egypt and Jordan, which both signed peace treaties with Israel and have been pushing a joint diplomatic plan for ending the current Palestinian conflict with Israel. The speaker of the Lebanese parliament, Nabih Berri, joined the proceedings as well.

Also at the assembly is well-known PLO terrorist Leila Khaled, who hijacked a TWA plane to Damascus in 1969 and was captured while trying to hijack an El Al flight in early September 1970. She was released in exchange for more than 300 hostages on American, British and Swiss airlines hijacked to the Middle East, an episode that touched off the Black September war between Jordan and the PLO. ...............................

The conference essentially solidifies Iran's place as the chief sponsors of not only its fellow Shi'ites in Hizb'Allah, but also Sunni Muslims in the Palestinian groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Israeli security sources have been tracking the increased cooperation between these competing terrorist organizations in recent months, which have seen a rising number of terror
attacks on Israeli civilian and military targets, including mortar fire and suicide bombings inside Israel. At the start of the intifada, Arafat gave a green light to stepped-up terrorist operations by emptying Palestinian jails of all Hamas and Islamic Jihad prisoners, including these groups in his cabinet sessions and using his own security forces to direct most of the on-going attacks.

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon today also disclosed that Iran has recently begun building its own rocket base in Lebanon from which they can fire rockets or long-range Katyushas that can reach the center of Israel.

The torrent of calls in Tehran for holy war against Israel came amidst mounting hostile rhetoric throughout the region.

On Monday, the pro-Western regime in Saudi Arabia - which sent representatives to the Tehran conference and pledged additional $ millions in support of the Palestinian uprising - blasted "the Israeli aggression, terrorism and oppression against innocent Palestinians... We urge all peace-loving countries to intervene to halt Israel's violent aggression," read a statement issued after the weekly cabinet meeting chaired by the ailing King Fahd.

In Baghdad on Tuesday, Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein called on Jewish immigrants to leave Palestine and return to their countries of origin.

And in Egypt yesterday, President Hosni Mubarak - often viewed as a "moderate" Arab leader and at present co-sponsor of the diplomatic initiative with Jordan's King Abdullah II - scolded Israel for the increasing unrest. "This aggressive behavior carries within itself dangerous risks to all the peoples of the region, including the Israeli people, and threatens the stability and security of the region because violence will only breed more violence," Mubarak said in a nationally televised address marking the 19th anniversary of Israel's return of the Sinai. He added that the Egyptian nation is ready to defend its land against all attackers.

The Egyptian parliament recently conferred on Mubarak carte blanche power as president to purchase and stockpile armaments to counter the supposed threats coming from Israel.

Meanwhile, Cairo is officially hosting yet another anti-Israel conference, this one on how to protect the Temple Mount and other Arab/Islamic sites in Jerusalem from being "Judiazed." This three-day gathering opened on Tuesday with participants accusing Israel of trying to steal the past from the Palestinian people. Delegates from 11 Arab countries and the Palestinian
Authority were present, along with representatives of UNESCO.

"As Israel confirms its hostile and expansionist policy toward Jerusalem, not only did it strike at the Palestinian present but is also trying to steal its past, future, heritage and history," said Saeed Kamal, assistant Arab League secretary-general for Palestinian affairs. .............................

This open hate by terrorist and government official side by side goes right to the heart of why Islam is about to be eradicated by God. It is a heart condition. God showed no mercy to the Nazi, and He will show no mercy to these Islamic haters of the Jew. Islam has willingly chosen this road to destruction. These rebels will find the wrath of God a fearful place to abide. God is longsuffering, but the time always comes when longsuffering ends. Judgment is Biblical. The final solution is being forced on God by Islam just as it was forced on Him by the Nazi. Islam will soon have the ability to ethnically cleanse the Holy Land of Jews by the millions. The Islamic bomb is a reality of today's news! The blind hate of Islam against the Jew is a reality of today's news! Judgment must be near!

I believe a regional judgment on Islam is coming soon. It will be at the beginning of the 7 year Tribulation. A short peace will result. At the end of the 7 year tribulation, the same hate for the Jew will be worldwide under the Anti-Christ, and a worldwide judgment at Armageddon will end the  7 year Tribulation. Rebellious mankind rejecting the God of the Bible will follow Islam on the same hate filled road to destruction. The Jewish King/Messiah will be the victor when Christ returns at the end of these 7 years of Tribulation.

Deut 30:6-7
6 And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.

7 And the LORD thy God will put all these curses upon thine enemies, and on them that hate thee, which persecuted thee.
KJV


Deut 32:39-42
39 See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.

40 For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever.

41 If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me.

42 I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy.
KJV


2 Sam 22:39-43
39 And I have consumed them, and wounded them, that they could not arise: yea, they are fallen under my feet.

40 For thou hast girded me with strength to battle: them that rose up against me hast thou subdued under me.

41 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies, that I might destroy them that hate me.

42 They looked, but there was none to save; even unto the LORD, but he answered them not.

43 Then did I beat them as small as the dust of the earth, I did stamp them as the mire of the street, and did spread them abroad.
KJV


Ps 35:19-23
19 Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.

20 For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.

21 Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, and said, Aha, aha, our eye hath seen it.

22 This thou hast seen, O LORD: keep not silence: O Lord, be not far from me.

23 Stir up thyself, and awake to my judgment, even unto my cause, my God and my Lord.
KJV

Four Palestinians killed in blast blamed on IDF

More permits for workers to enter Israel

By Amos Harel and Baruch Kra
Ha'aretz Correspondents and Agencies

Four Fatah activists were killed in an explosion near the Rafiah border crossing with Egypt in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday night, and six others were injured. Palestinian Authority officials blamed Israel and called the death of the four an assassination.

Yesterday, the IDF shot and killed a Palestinian farmer, Atef Wahdan, near the Al-Bureij refugee camp in the Gaza strip, and shots were fired against the Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo last night during Independence Day celebrations. Eight apartments and vehicles were hit by the shots fired from the neighboring Bet Jala. No injuries were reported.

Thousands of Palestinians attended the funeral of the four Fatah men, shouting angry slogans and vowing to step up the Al Aqsa Intifada.

Masked gunmen fired in the air at the funeral and members of the Islamic militant Hamas promised to retaliate by sending six suicide bombers to carry out attacks inside Israel. The Palestinian Authority blamed the deaths on Israel and said a remote controlled bomb was operated from an unmanned drone. Israel denied the Palestinian claims, while Israel Army Radio said the four died in what the IDF terms a "work accident" - preparing a bomb.

Israeli sources said the incident happened when a group of 10 Palestinians walked, approximately 500 meters from the border crossing, before there was an explosion, killing four of the group. The other six were injured, two of them are in serious condition.

One of the dead is Ramadan Azzam, 31, head of the "Popular Resistance Committees." The group is a local organization of the Fatah believed to be responsible for some of the mortar firing against Israeli targets.

Two of the other dead, Samir Zurub, 32, and Saadi Dabas, 35, were members of the Palestinian security forces, while the fourth bomb victim, Yasser Dabas, was a 16-year old civilian.

It happens again! another premature explosion by those who want to kill Jews. How blind must one be not to see God's hand in this? The Bible often talks about how God is able to put the sword of brother against brother. The Last Jihad of Ezekiel prophecies of such things happening to the invaders of Israel. Haggai reveals the same thing happened in preparation for the Second Temple's construction.

Ezek 38:21-23
21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother.

22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.
KJV


Hag 2:21-23
21 Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth;

22 And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother.

23
In that day, saith the LORD of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the LORD, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the LORD of hosts.
KJV

Zerubbabel and Joshua the High Priest are the Two olive trees of the Second Temple, and equivalents of the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11 to the Third Temple.

Old Testament (Second Temple)

Zech 4:3
3 And
two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.
KJV

New Testament (Third Temple)


Rev 11:4
4 These are the
two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

EGYPTIAN PAPER HAILS HITLER AGAIN

For the second time in a week, a leading columnist in an Egyptian government daily has praised Adolph Hitler for taking "revenge" on the Jewish people during the Holocaust.

According to a translation supplied by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), popular Egyptian writer Ahmad Ragab reiterated in Wednesday's edition of the AL-AKHBAR newspaper his thanks to Hitler in his regular short column entitled "Half a Word," defiantly using the same words published on April 20. After his earlier column was widely reported by
MEMRI, this time Ragab wrote: "[Insistently] for the second time, thanks to Hitler, of blessed memory, who on behalf of the Palestinians, revenged in advance, against the most vile criminals on the face of the earth. Although we do have a complaint against him for his revenge on them was not enough."

That blessed Hitler now knows the God of the Bible is Great! Hitler thought he could end it all with a cyanide pill and bullet to the brain. What a shock it must have been for him to close his eyes in this world only to open them in another. What a shock to find God is Great! God gave him an immortal soul that can never die. Hitler thought he could end his life, but God does not allow that! Now Hitler is abiding forever under the wrath of God. A terrible eternal future for an immortal soul! Judgment is decreed by the eternal God of the Bible. Hitler and all his Nazi cronies now know judgment is forever. They rejected the God of the Bible in life, and now pay the price for their arrogance in death. Islam is soon to follow the Nazi on the same road of hate to destruction. Sadly, it does not end at death. Judgment is eternal!

Luke 16:22-23
22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
KJV


Isa 66:23-24
23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.

24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.
KJV


Mark 9:44-48
44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

45 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

46 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

47 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:

48 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
KJV


Matt 13:49-51
49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,

50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

51
Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.
KJV

Matt 25:41
41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
KJV


Rev 20:11-15
11 And I saw a
great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and
the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and
they were judged every man according to their works.

14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

15 And
whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
KJV

Monday Morning spirit worship news from Calvary Contender

CATHOLIC CHARISMATICS & SPIRITUALISM—Brazil is the largest Roman Catholicism country in the world, but is really a Spiritualist country (see 12/15 CC). It could well be the number one Spiritualist country in the world with an estimated two hundred million Catholics. It is estimated that two-thirds of these Brazilians are Spiritualists or something close (4/2 Chr. News). They are generally religious charismatics with organized sect meetings about spirit life and spirit worship. 

WHICH CHURCHES ARE GROWING—A new study by Hartford Seminary reveals that churches that have "explicit, specific definitions and goals for their members and high standards for personal morality and communal justice" report greater vitality and growth in participation (4/23 Chr. Today). Evangelicals founded 58 percent of all new churches between 1990 and 2000, of which the Assemblies of God mounted the largest effort. Mormons and Muslims have started more congregations than liberal and moderate Protestants and Roman Catholics combined. Liberal and moderate Protestant churches are adapting contemporary worship styles. "A rule of thumb is that the Episcopal churches using drums are growing." 

WCC WANTS GLOBAL 'CHRISTIAN' UNITY—In a conclave held recently at Fuller Seminary, the "World Council of Churches proposed a new worldwide Christian forum that would unite all… denominations from around the world"; that this proposed "forum" would include not only the present WCC denominations, but also groups that are not currently "part of the WCC such as Roman Catholics, Pentecostals and Evangelicals." (Fund. Digest) 

PORN WENT MAINSTREAM UNDER CLINTON—The Clinton administration virtually stopped prosecuting obscenity cases, allowing pornography to become mainstream. The Justice Department prosecuted the worst offenders during the Reagan-Bush years, but under Clinton the floodgates were opened. Larry Flynt is quoted: "We've had eight years of lack of prosecution of a sex industry." So the film industry has gone from 1,000 porno films eight years ago to 10,000 last year….plus all the Internet stuff! The Internet is now the sexual medium of choice, offering pictures, videos, and web cams for every perversion (Gene Veith, 4/7 World). Porn now takes in more money than rock and country music combined. It is a type of adultery, in that imaginations (lusts) are the moral and spiritual equivalent of actions.

What kind of Christianity is America nurturing, and exporting to the world?  It's the Charismatic type of mysticism. It is based on spirit worship. The Catholic Church long ago adopted the spirit names of the virgin Mary (not to be confused with the real Biblical virgin Mary), and an array of Christian success stories that they spun into spirit saints to be worshiped and adored. A lesser christ is there, but the spirits are first in adoration. The modern Charismatics have their own spirit called the holy spirit (not to be confused with the Biblical Holy Spirit). They magnify and elevate this false self-adoring spirit with the same intensity the Catholic has done for the virgin Mary spirit. It is all apostate, and why the Church has lost it's testimony in Christ. It is why the Church must step aside as God ushers in the next dispensation in His Biblical plan centered in the true Christ, the Biblical Christ. The Two Witnesses of Revelation chapter 11 will denounce Apostate Christianity that will continue as it is today into the 7 year Tribulation. Apostate Christianity will pass through the rapture unchanged as we watch it forming before our very eyes today. It is a lying self adorning spirit - not the Biblical Spirit of truth!

Another type of Christianity America is nurturing and exporting is the Bill Clinton Southern Baptist style where "is" is not "is," and what he did to a young secretary is not adultery. It is a lying spirit - not the Biblical Spirit of truth! Southern Baptists appalled by Bill Clinton remain in the denomination that took no action. They lie in their feather beds content to do nothing as the lying spirit of the Great Apostate Church grows. They care not that the lying spirit has gathered them into his clutches. How shameful they will be at what they leave behind after the rapture.

John 14:16-19
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
KJV


John 14:26
26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
KJV


John 15:26
26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father,
he shall testify of me:
KJV


John 16:7-14
7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;

10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;

11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.

13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for
he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

14
He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
KJV
