Vatican Starts Campaign Against Gay Marriage

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Filed at 6:30 a.m. ET

VATICAN CITY (AP) -- The Vatican launched a global campaign against gay marriages Thursday, warning Catholic politicians that support of same-sex unions was ``gravely immoral'' and urging non-Catholics to join the offensive.

The Vatican's orthodoxy watchdog, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, issued a 12-page set of guidelines with the approval of Pope John Paul II in a bid to stem the increase in laws granting legal rights to homosexual unions in Europe and North America.

``There are absolutely no grounds for considering homosexual unions to be in any way similar or even remotely analogous to God's plan for marriage and family,'' the document said. ``Marriage is holy, while homosexual acts go against the natural moral law.''

The issue is particularly charged in the United States, where some lawmakers in the House of Representatives have proposed a constitutional ban on gay marriages to counter state laws granting legal recognition to gay unions.

President Bush said Wednesday that marriage was defined strictly as a union between a man and a woman and said he wants to ``codify that one way or the other.''

The Vatican document, ``Considerations Regarding Proposals to Give Legal Recognition to Unions Between Homosexual Persons,'' sets out a battle plan for politicians when confronted with laws or proposed legislation giving homosexual couples the same rights as married heterosexuals.

It also comes out strongly against allowing gay couples to adopt, saying children raised by same-sex parents face developmental ``obstacles'' because they are deprived of having either a mother or a father.

``Allowing children to be adopted by persons living in such unions would actually mean doing violence to these children, in the sense that their condition of dependency would be used to place them in an environment that is not conducive to their full human development,'' it said.

The document says Catholic politicians have a ``moral duty'' to publicly oppose laws granting recognition to homosexual unions and to vote against them if proposals are put to a vote in legislatures.

If the laws are already on the books, politicians must speak out against them, work to repeal them and try to limit their impact on society, it said.

``To vote in favor of a law so harmful to the common good is gravely immoral,'' the document said.

The document doesn't provide for specific penalties for Catholics who fail to oppose such laws, saying only that the lawmakers had a ``moral duty'' to vote against them.

 

 

The hypocrisy of the Roman Catholic Church is legion. The pompous leadership takes the moral high ground in opposing homosexual marriage while it openly accepts homosexual priests into the priesthood. Abstinence from sex seems to be the key words to their self-evaluated morality? This sexless hierarchy puts itself above God Himself in authority by declaring what constitutes the doctrines of faith. I still remember meatless Friday, and the Latin mass. How long before "against homosexual marriage" goes the same way as "against eating meat on Friday?" The morality of the Roman Catholic Church ebbs and flows with the wind. The moral decision to accept supposed celibate homosexuals into the priesthood is what brought on the unending ever expanding scandal involving  pedophile homosexual priests. The destruction of innocent little lives has opened the eyes of the world to the fruit of the Roman Catholic  hierarchy.

 The Biblical moral judgment is that all homosexuality is sinful, and promised celibacy does not make it moral. God deals with the heart. The filthiest sins are often never acted out, but that does not make fantasizes moral! The lust in the heart is what is immoral according to the Bible. The Roman Catholic priesthood pompously fantasizes that it alone is above lust.

The unholy alliance of the Evangelicals with the Roman Catholics is immorality of the darkest hue. The Great Awakening (the last true mass revival) was noted for separation from the Roman Catholic Church. It clearly identified Catholicism as apostate. Today, we will never know how many Catholics who came forward at Evangelical crusades were counseled by homosexual pedophile priests who claimed they were born again? It is research which will never be perused. It is not something the late Bill Bright, or Billy Graham would care to have known.

The coming Kingdom is God's answer to the present condition of today's Christianity. The time has come for the Church to step aside for Israel. The great days of faithfulness to Biblical doctrine are  of yesteryear. The glory of Christianity has past, and the time to step aside is now. This lukewarm Christian edition of being neither cold, or hot is about to be spued from God's mouth. This bad fruit has a bitter taste.

 

 

The Church that is Lukewarm

Rev 3:15-17

15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
KJV
 

Jer 17:8-10

8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

10 I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.
KJV

Matt 12:33-37

33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

KNESSET MEMBERS THREATEN TRIPS TO TEMPLE MOUNT

After police decided to suspend recently renewed non-Muslim visits to the Temple Mount on Wednesday, some Knesset members threatened to organize trips there for themselves.

Michael Ratzon (Likud) appealed to Public Security Minister Tzachi Hanegbi yesterday to reopen the Temple Mount to Jewish visitors. Ratzon said that if the site was not reopened he would organize a daily rotation of Knesset members to visit the Temple Mount.

Police suspended the visits due to fear of Palestinian riots and declined to say when they would be allowed again.

The national director of the American Anti-Defamation League, Abraham Foxman, who is in Israel and was planning a visit to the Temple Mount yesterday, said, "It is both sad and offensive for Palestinians to continue to fuel the myth that the Jewish people have no history or interest in the holy sites that have been the cradle of the Jewish faith."

"To call a possible visit done with respect and consideration for the Islamic tradition a provocation or crime is contrary to the spirit of the road map and reconciliation," he said.

Last Friday's Muslim prayers on the Temple Mount were closed to Palestinians under the age of 40, after intelligence reports suggested that riots were planned. The prayers, attended by 11,000 worshipers, ended without incident.
 

 

 

Who has the sovereignty over the Temple Mount is an issue which must be settled. Israel obviously has had the military sovereignty since 1967, but has been unwilling to assume the responsibility. There is no Jewish leadership either secular, or religious that has a vision of what to do with the Mount. The conservatives will fight for Jewish rights, but have no vision beyond that. The liberal secular Jews under Peres have a plan to give away the sovereignty to the gentiles. The proposal is to have the UN administer this hornets nest washing Jewish hands of any responsibility. It is the same voice as all the false prophets recorded throughout Jewish history. The voice of compromise with the heathen so peace can come to Israel. Compromised peace never came in the past, and it will not come to this generation either.

Islam has a plan for the Temple Mount. A plan from the very depths of hell. The plan is to eradicate all evidence of Jewish occupation. The plan is to arbitrarily rewrite the historical record as if Jewish sovereignty over the Holy Land  never happened. Already, they have destroyed all Jewish artifacts found in the many cisterns within the Temple Mount. The plan is to bring Islamic Holy Water to the Mount then arbitrarily claim it to be the original site of the Garden of Eden which predates Jewish history. The Bible will become nothing more then Jewish propaganda, and Islam will become Allah's plan inferred by the Koran from the very beginning with all centered at the Temple Mount.

The Pope has a plan for the Temple Mount. I suppose he expects the UN will give him sovereignty?  He could then release his homosexual pedophile priesthood to administer magical rites of highest celibate morality from the Mount. Roman Catholic theology has long taught the gullible that the Church will grow like a great tree which will one day take over the whole earth, and in this way it will bring the fullness of the Kingdom of Heaven to earth? Replacement theology is the theology of this pope who believes all the prophetic future promises in the Bible to the Jews should be replaced by the Roman Catholic Church.

The only plan that will actually happen is God's plan for Ezekiel's Jewish Temple built on the Temple Mount. Only God's plan will bring peace for Jerusalem, and the whole world. All other plans are anathema.  All other plans bring only death and destruction because of judgment!

"Thy Kingdom Come. Thy Will Be Done"

 

 

 

Mic 3:5-12

5 Thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him.
6 Therefore night shall be unto you, that ye shall not have a vision; and it shall be dark unto you, that ye shall not divine; and the sun shall go down over the prophets, and the day shall be dark over them.
7 Then shall the seers be ashamed, and the diviners confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God.
8 But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.
9 Hear this, I pray you, ye heads of the house of Jacob, and princes of the house of Israel, that abhor judgment, and pervert all equity.
10 They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity.
11 The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say, Is not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us.
12 Therefore shall Zion for your sake be plowed as a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain of the house as the high places of the forest.

Archeologists uncover 12,000-year-old settlement near Jerusalem

JERUSALEM (AFP) - Israeli archeologists said they had discovered a 12,000-year-old neolithic settlement west of Jerusalem which they believe is the largest of the period ever discovered in the Holy Land.

The settlement, in Motza five kilometers (three miles) west of Jerusalem, was home to 2,000 people and dates to 9,500 BC, Hammadid Khalife, head of the archeological team, told AFP.

"We discovered a real treasure on the site consisting of 58 flint blades, found together, which at the time served as a kind of currency," Khalife said.

"The origin of the stone and the way the blades were made show they come from northern Syria," he added.

"It is the first time that such a treasure ... from this neolithic period, has been discovered in the Holy Land," said Khalife, who specified the site belonged to an era known as pre-pottery neolithic.

A similar discovery was made in Syria by a French team three years ago at a site called Jerat al-Ahmar.

The dig, which started three months ago, was organized by the Israeli antiquities department.


A 7,000-year-old burial at Ensisheim, in the French region of Alsace, has yielded the earliest unequivocal evidence for trepanation, according to Kurt W. Alt of Freiburg University and his colleagues. Trepanation is a surgical operation that involves the removal of a rectangle or disk of bone from the cranial vault. Most previous claims to cases predating the Late Neolithic age have been shown to be untreated head injuries or the results of decomposition.

These flint tooled Neolithic people were far more skilled then what anthropologists like to admit. These first generations after the flood who knew how to do delicate brain surgery might also have been skilled enough to build the great pyramids? Some of them may well have been the first Egyptians?

 

 

Truly accurate historical records of human history only go back some 4000 years to the days of Abraham. Older dates become very fussy, and are more speculative then scientific in my opinion. Egyptian history has long claimed accuracy going back farther then 5000-plus years but that has all been turned upside-down by a new breed of researchers. The building of the great pyramids has been called into question changing their purpose from tombs for the Pharoses to celestial observatories.  The apple cart was turned over with a simple observation. An aerial view shows the three great pyramids duplicate. the stars of Orion's belt. The most recognizable star  grouping know to all generations. An observation that can't be denied. Their size replicates the brightness of the three stars, and the offset of the smallest pyramid duplicates the belt stars as aligned in the heavens. Egyptology before 4000 years is now about to be rewritten. The old theories are on the chopping block. The old, old ages of Egyptian history are also spurious in my opinion, and should also be chopped.

This 12,000 year old date of the Neolithic site nestled next to Jerusalem is spurious in my opinion. My personal feelings are that all Neolithic sites worldwide are post-flood wanderings of adventurous groups exploring the world after the flood. The events at the Tower of Babble dispersed that generation of star worshippers, and they spread out from the fertile-crescent leaving evidence of their passing throughout the world.

The accurate history of Jerusalem also goes back only 4000 years. It was called Salem. It was the home of the great  King, Priest, and Prophet Melchizedek. A picture of the coming Christ who would fulfill the rolls of Prophet, Priest, and King at Jerusalem at the end of it's history. I believe the pre-flood theology was written in the stars. I believe Christ was represented as Orion. I believe the message God gave those first generations was corrupted bringing about the judgment of the flood. Babble was an attempt to return to that corrupted system of star worship. God dispersed the rebels by confusing their language. The first Egyptians who built the pyramids tried to continue the corrupted star worship, but it succumbed to paganism where the beast was worshipped rather then God the creator.

Melchizedek represented a remnant that like Noah remained faithful, and resisted both corrupted star worship and paganism. We know little of those early years at Jerusalem. The Bible is the only record of that early history. It is a historical record centered in Christ from beginning to end!

 

 

Jerusalem and Melchizedek

Gen 14:18-20

18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.

19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:

20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.
KJV

Heb 5:6-10

6 As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

7 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;

8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;

10 Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec.
KJV

Heb 6:20

20 Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
KJV

Heb 7:1-6
7:1 For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;

2 To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;

3 Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.

4 Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.

5 And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham:

6 But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises.

Please pray for me. I'll be at the Durham VA for eye surgery today. I'll be taking Amtrak which is always an adventure for the handicapped. I will need the help of strangers on this 24 hour trek which will be a good test of my faith. I'm planning to be back home Tuesday evening, but they may keep me longer should my left eye need special care. The daily comments on the news may be temporarily interrupted.

I appreciate your prayers. I feel very vulnerable when leaving the safety of my mobile home.

MURDER OF CHRISTIAN CONVERT 'WARNING' TO PALESTINIANS

After murdering a Muslim-turned-Christian, Islamic extremists have reportedly returned the man's body to his Palestinian family in four pieces

According to a report from the Barnabas Fund, the newly converted man left his friends and family earlier this month bound for a mountainous region of the Palestinian Authority area. He reportedly took Christian material with him - videos, cassette tapes and a Bible. After approximately 10 days, the body of the man, who left behind a wife and two small children, was returned to his home, having been cut into four pieces.

The family believes the act was meant a warning to other Muslims who might consider becoming Christians.

The Barnabas Fund is withholding further details about the story due to concern for the safety of the family.  The organization records incidents of Christian persecution in the Middle East, and works for changes in the way Islam is taught. Under Muslim sharia law, any male who leaves Islam faces the death penalty.

According to the Barnabas Fund, local Christians working to support converts from Islam report that Islamic militants in the Palestinian Authority area deliberately target converts.

The terror group Hamas reportedly receives funding from Iran specifically for this purpose.
 

 

 

Islamic law is the law of the jungle for wild animalistic behavior. The world needs to know that when God judges Islam in Ezekiel 39 that it is for this kind of hate. It is not that the Christians or Jews are so righteous and innocent, but because Islam has become so violent. The gentile governments are charged with controlling the animals of society. When men sink into the depths of depravity becoming vicious, mindless,  wild animals, governments have the responsibility to cage or kill them. When governments do not fulfill their responsibility, God must act! Ezekiel 39 records such a future action.

The false peace with Islam coming through this gentile road map will end at Ezekiel 39. The end of Islam. After Ezekiel 39 Islam will never be an influence in the Holy Land. After Ezekiel 39 there will be no opposition to the cleansing of the Temple Mount of all heathen pollution, and the building of the Third Holy Jewish Temple.

 

 

The End of Islam

Ezek 39:13-16

13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD.

14 And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.

15 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man's bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamon-gog.

16 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.

Thursday - August 7, 2003

This year, Tisha B'Av falls out on Thursday, August 7, 2003.

WHAT HAPPENED ON THE NINTH OF AV?

On Tisha B'Av, five national calamities occurred:

  1. During the time of Moses, Jews in the desert accepted the slanderous report of the 12 Spies, and the decree was issued forbidding them from entering the Land of Israel. (1312 BCE)

  2. The First Temple was destroyed by the Babylonians, led by Nebuchadnezzar. 100,000 Jews were slaughtered and millions more exiled. (586 BCE)

  3. The Second Temple was destroyed by the Romans, led by Titus. Some two million Jews died, and another one million were exiled. (70 CE)

  4. The Bar Kochba revolt was crushed by Roman Emperor Hadrian. The city of Betar -- the Jews' last stand against the Romans -- was captured and liquidated. Over 100,000 Jews were slaughtered. (135 BCE)

  5. The Temple area and its surroundings were plowed under by the Roman general Turnus Rufus. Jerusalem was rebuilt as a pagan city -- renamed Aelia Capitolina -- and access was forbidden to Jews.

18 Thou shalt not be afraid of them: but shalt well remember what the LORD thy God did unto Pharaoh, and unto all Egypt;

Mother and Three Children Shot by Terrorists
10:47 Aug. 04, '03 / 6 Av 5763

A 39-year-old mother was seriously wounded in a terrorist shooting attack last night in southern Jerusalem, and one of her children was wounded "moderately." Two other children were lightly hurt in the attack, which occurred around 9:30 PM not far from Har Gilo and the Walajeh Checkpoint. The woman is now listed in serious but stable condition in Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital, after having undergone surgery during the night. She remains on a mechanical respirator as well. Her 9-year-old daughter is listed in good condition in a pediatric surgical ward with hand and thigh injuries, most likely from the same bullet.

Fatah's al-Aqsa Brigades took responsibility for the shooting attack, as well as for two other shooting incidents last night (see below). The terrorist organization said that it planned the three simultaneous attacks to counter what it called Israel's "hudna violations," namely, the continued arrests of suspected terrorists. Israel, of course, is not a signatory to the hudna, and in fact has said it will continue to fight terrorism for as long as the PA does not.

In other attacks during the night, soldiers were targeted by Arab gunfire north of Jenin, causing damage to a military vehicle, and gunfire was also directed at an armored personnel carrier in northern Gaza. A paratrooper force shot and killed a terrorist placing a bomb near Tul Karem. There were no injuries to our soldiers in these incidents.

Welfare Minister Zevulun Orlev (National Religious Party), a member of the ministerial committee on the release of terrorists, has called upon Prime Minister Sharon to postpone the scheduled release of 443 PA terrorists this Wednesday.


MK Ariel: Time to Reconquer Bethlehem
10:41 Aug. 04, '03 / 6 Av 5763
(IsraelNN.com) “After last night’s terrorist attack,” Knesset member Uri Ariel (National Union) said today, “Bethlehem must be re-conquered.”

Ariel, a member of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, said that he would warn the Prime Minister at today’s committee meeting not to repeat the failures of Oslo and allow the PA to default on its commitments without serious consequences.

 

 

The terrorism has never stopped. This one way street of Israel making all the concessions to the gentiles is what must be stopped. The world is slow to realize that making peace with the Islamic Palestinian Arabs is like the Jews trying to make peace with the Nazis of the 30's and 40's. It just can't be done!

The Palestinians have earned the need to be policed. Israel the sovereign must assume the responsibility as long as Islam can't police itself. God is moving to give Israel total control of the Holy Land. Islam and the Palestinians can submit, or face the consequences of standing in the way of the God of the Bible. Great issues are at stake for this generation. The Bible stands or falls over what this generation does concerning the Holy Land. The more resistance; the more God will force His will upon all. It is not much different from the prideful resistance of Pharaoh. Israel must be free to fulfill the destiny God has determined for them as revealed in the Bible. The plagues of the Great Tribulation are on the way. Israel must be free to build their Temple on the Temple Mount. There will be no compromise with God over this single issue! All opposition by Islam as well as the rest of the gentile world will find God dealing with them as He did with that old generation of Egyptians.

The real pressure is coming from the God of the Bible who is again indicating the time has come to "let my people go!" They must be free to build the Third Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. The Mount must be cleansed of all Islamic heathenism! God will never compromise His holiness with corrupted heathenism. The shooting of Jewish woman and children in the Holy Land must stop. The culture that promises paradise to their mindless wild animals must end! It will not be done by man. It is God who will show His displeasure with such behavior through judgment.

The anniversary of Tisha B'Av should not go unnoticed to this generation. God has not finished with His plans involving the Jewish Temples. The exodus was aimed at getting the Jews into the Land God intended for His Holy House of sacrifice and prayer to be built. The Land where His only begotten Son would sacrifice Himself for sin, and then be resurrected in acceptable victory. Only there, in that one place has the God of the Bible claimed for Himself. It is the heights of stupidity to stand in the way of this God of the Bible at this place!

 

 

Egypt Represents the Gentile World

Ezek 29:2-9

2 Son of man, set thy face against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and prophesy against him, and against all Egypt:
3 Speak, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great dragon that lieth in the midst of his rivers, which hath said, My river is mine own, and I have made it for myself.
4 But I will put hooks in thy jaws, and I will cause the fish of thy rivers to stick unto thy scales, and I will bring thee up out of the midst of thy rivers, and all the fish of thy rivers shall stick unto thy scales.
5 And I will leave thee thrown into the wilderness, thee and all the fish of thy rivers: thou shalt fall upon the open fields; thou shalt not be brought together, nor gathered: I have given thee for meat to the beasts of the field and to the fowls of the heaven.
6 And all the inhabitants of Egypt shall know that I am the LORD, because they have been a staff of reed to the house of Israel.
7 When they took hold of thee by thy hand, thou didst break, and rend all their shoulder: and when they leaned upon thee, thou brakest, and madest all their loins to be at a stand.
8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will bring a sword upon thee, and cut off man and beast out of thee.
9 And the land of Egypt shall be desolate and waste; and they shall know that I am the LORD: because he hath said, The river is mine, and I have made it.

Court Says No To Jewish Entry To Temple Mount
18:23 Aug. 06, '03 / 8 Av 5763
 

He said that after meeting with police officials and Public Security Minister Tzachi HaNegbi, who gave him classified information explaining why the Mount is now closed to Jews, he understands the security dangers. He also canceled a Law Committee session on the topic.

MK Yechiel Chazan, however, who also met with police officials, said he was not convinced. He still plans to visit the holy site.

Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitz, Rabbi of Israel's Holy Sites, issued a request today to the police, Knesset Members and the Supreme Court, asking that Jews be prevented from visiting the Temple Mount. He said that there is a halakhic [Jewish legal] prohibition on such entry, and that the sanctity of the site must not be violated. Other rabbis have ruled that entry to certain known areas of the Temple Mount are permitted after proper precautions have been taken. Rabbi Rabinovitz further noted today that the tensions raised with the Moslems by such Temple Mount visits might even lead to a drop in Jewish visits to the Western Wall.

In keeping with the above, the Supreme Court turned down a suit on the matter by the Temple Mount Loyalists. They had asked, as they do every year, for permission to ascend to the Temple Mount on Tisha B'Av, in order to commemorate the day on which the Temples were destroyed. Although the Court gave their petition greater consideration than it did in previous years, the end result was the same: No.

Atty. Naftali Wurtzberger, representing the petitioners, said sorrowfully afterwards, "The cave-in of the government, with a national-camp Minister like Tzachi HaNegbi giving in to the dictates of Yasser Arafat and the Palestinian Authority - this is a true manifestation of the destruction that we are commemorating this week... In case we thought that the State of Israel had put an end to the Exile, we instead see that the destruction did not end 2,000 years ago, but is, in some ways, a state of mind that persists; this surrender by a proud national-camp minister to the man from the Mukata is clear proof that the destruction is still with us - and that there is what to cry about."


Gravestones Desecrated in Mount of Olives Cemetery
15:00 Aug. 07, '03 / 9 Av 5763

(IsraelNN.com) Police last night arrested ten Arab juveniles between the ages of 13 and 17, suspected of damaging gravestones in the Mount of Olives Cemetery in Jerusalem during the past months.

The suspects in custody, residents of the eastern capital, are accused of smashing stones as well as spreading excrement and spraying graffiti on graves.

The arrests followed a three-month investigation. The young suspects told police the cemetery is “Palestinian land” and as far as they are concerned, the cemetery is a “playground”.


100,000 Already Visited the Kotel
14:00 Aug. 07, '03 / 9 Av 5763
 

(IsraelNN.com) Officials report that over 100,000 persons have already made their way to the Western Wall since last night, the start of Tisha B’Av, the day we mourn the destruction of the First and Second Temples.

A large security forces is present in an around the Old City to ensure the day passes without incident.
 

 

 

Three places are in the news today. #1 The Wailing Wall (Kotel), #2 The Temple Mount, and #3 The Mount of Olives.

I am always saddened that there is a wall separating the Jews from the Temple Mount, and their God. It is only Jewish tradition that reverend this wall, and not the Bible. It is a wall of separation that must come down! The Jews are to be separated unto their God not separated from Him as present pharisaical  tradition has done. 

On the opposite side of the Temple Mount from the wall is #3 the Mount of Olives where Palestinian children are being nurtured to desecrate it with their excrement. This is the site where the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ went up to heaven. The last place on planet earth where His feet touched the ground. The Bible says He will return in like manner to this very place. What will He do with this filthy culture that nurtures it's children to do such despicable acts to such a Biblically honored holy site? Oh, what shame that His precious feet should have to step on such filth at His return. I suppose it a little thing when compared to all the filth of sin He shed His blood to cleanse, but it is a sad indictment on  how little this generation cares about His purity and holiness. I suppose not even a slap on the hand will be administered to these hoodlums, and the culture that nurtured them? Political sensitivities are more important.

#2 The Temple Mount is also of little importance to this generation other then the political gains it might bring. The filth of Islamic heathenism desecrates the very ground in contrast to the holiness that the Bible places upon this place.  Things are about to change. The God of the Bible is forcing His will on planet earth at this place! Woe to any who will stand in His way! The LORD of hosts has said He will fight for Mount Zion! He shall fight for the hill thereof! That fight has clearly  started as realized in today's news. The Third Holy Jewish Temple shall never be destroyed as the others. It will stand as an ensign to the returned Lord Jesus Christ for 1,000 years!

The LORD of Hosts is Coming

Isa 31:1-5
31:1 Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the LORD!

2 Yet he also is wise, and will bring evil, and will not call back his words: but will arise against the house of the evildoers, and against the help of them that work iniquity.

3 Now the Egyptians are men, and not God; and their horses flesh, and not spirit. When the LORD shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is holpen shall fall down, and they all shall fail together.

4 For thus hath the LORD spoken unto me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, he will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so shall the LORD of hosts come down to fight for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof.

5 As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it.
KJV

Two Giant Stones: The Future And The Past
16:35 Aug. 08, '03 / 10 Av 5763


A unique ceremony on behalf of the not-yet built Third Temple was held in Jerusalem yesterday - and behind it lies a fascinating story of Jewish history in the Land of Israel.

Two giant stones - 6.5 tons each - were transported yesterday morning, in honor of Tisha B'Av, in a large parade around downtown Jerusalem, accompanied by dozens of cars draped with flags of Israel and the Temple. The stones are fit to be used as the cornerstones of the Temple, says Gershon Solomon of the Temple Mount Loyalists, as they are made of white marble cut by diamonds, and not by metal. In addition, they were mined in the Negev desert, just as were the Second Temple stones, and are the same light blue color.

The parade made its way from northern Jerusalem, around the Old City and Mt. Zion, along King George St., and back again. It set out from the Givat HaMivtar neighborhood from where the stones are kept year-round - in the burial cave discovered 22 years ago of King Antigonos of Judea, the last of the Hasmonean kings.

In 40 BCE, Antigonos rebelled against Rome and announced the independence of his kingdom. The Romans promptly invaded Jerusalem, and thus began the era of Roman rule. Gershon Solomon told Arutz-7's Leah Rabinowitz that the Romans crucified Antigonos, and made sure to bury him in Syria, so as not to arouse nationalistic feelings among the Jews. A certain priest could not make peace with this travesty, and expended major efforts to recover the body and bring it for burial outside Jerusalem, overlooking the Temple Mount [in today's Givat HaMivtar]. That priest, together with a tablet telling this story, was also found buried in the same burial chamber.
 

 

 

The Temple Mount Loyalists are another political group looking for political gain in my opinion. I wait on God to call another in the likeness of Haggai to give a clarion call to build the Third Jewish Holy Temple. When the LORD gives His mandate to build, it will be crystal clear! The Jews have miraculously been given sovereignty over the Temple Mount for the last 36 years.  An entire generation is about to pass the mantel  to the next with no action! This generation of Jews continue to say "the time is not come, the time that the LORD's house should be built." That time is mow upon us in my opinion. I expect the LORD of Hosts to stir two Jewish virgin men of today living in Jerusalem to give that clarion call!

The Two Giant Stones both of the future as described in Revelation chapter 11 are about to make their appearance! They will be the corner stones God will use to accomplish this almost here prophetic fulfillment. Divine Revelation is required to build the next acceptable Temple. The Temple Mount Loyalists make no such claims. There are no Jews other then discredited false fanatics saying God has spoken. Only the Two in sackcloth much similar to John the Baptist will be qualified to proclaim the Kingdom is at hand. The first hypocrites, that brood of vipers, to be discredited by these two holy men will no doubt be all the left behind modern day Charismatics falsely claiming, and believing God speaks to them. The television waves are filled with these diamond studded money changers who used divine revelation to make fortunes. They claim God tells them of cancers healed, or other spurious maladies supposed miraculously corrected.

Divine Revelation must again be lifted up to the wonderment that God has always placed upon it. Sackcloth is significant in this materialistic religious world of today. The true men of God will prove there is no need of personal worldly wealth to accomplish the giant tasks of God. They will prove the sufficiency of Christ the coming again Messiah! Their testimony will be finished when they build Ezekiel's Temple!

 

 

Sackcloth Builders of Third Temple

Rev 11:1-14
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.
5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
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

HAMAS THREATENS 'HUDNA' AFTER NABLUS BOMB-FACTORY RAID

A Hamas spokesman in Gaza said Friday that the dominant Palestinian terror group is no longer bound to keep its temporary 'hudna' (ceasefire) following Israel's pre-dawn raid on a suspected bomb factory near Nablus. An Israeli soldier and leading Hamas bomb-maker were killed in the operation.

Twenty year old Ro'i Oren was shot when troops from his elite unit came under fire from Palestinian gunmen as they attempted to arrest the terror group's main West Bank explosives 'engineer' Hamis abu Salam.

After evacuating Palestinian families from the building, according to local witnesses, the soldiers aimed an anti-tank missile at the gunmen hitting the bomb factory and setting off a series of blasts, which are believed to have killed Salam. One other Hamas leader is believed to have escaped the scene.

The IDF is continuing its operations to arrest Palestinian terror suspects in the territories, and sends forces into Palestinian towns and villages almost every night to make arrests, in line with its stated policy of going after "ticking bomb" targets. Israel has indicated that it will stop only when the Palestinian Authority agrees to honor its commitments to tackle the terrorists.

"Israel has said it will continue to take pinpoint action in response to intelligence on the activities of terrorists, especially in areas where the PA has not acted to arrest them. This is the very policy that was discussed at Aqaba," diplomatic sources told Yediot Ahronot in reference to the US-sponsored June "peace" summit.

The IDF confirmed on Friday that the army conducted the raid due to intelligence information that the two Hamas leaders were planning an imminent terror attack inside Israel.

In the Gaza Strip, a Hamas spokesman accused Israel of a "gross violation" of the unilateral cease-fire that the Palestinian terror groups declared at the end of June.  Israeli military intelligence has claimed that Hamas is taking advantage of the cease-fire in order to re-arm and improve its stock of explosives.

In northern Samaria an IDF unit operating near the Palestinian town of Tulkarm discovered a 35kg bomb in the early hours of Friday morning. The large device was found hidden inside the gas tank of a truck near the village of Ertah and safely detonated by Police sappers.
 

 

 

Words like peace and ceasefire have a different meaning to the Islamic Palestinians then to everyone else. Israel is not fooled like the rest of the western world. It is usually the western press that still prints stories implying that peace means peace, and hudna means ceasefire. They would portray Israel as breaking the ceasefire through these daily raids, and thus preventing peace to ever be realized. The truth is Israel has been more then patient with the Palestinians. Israel has the power to ruthlessly crush the militant opposition, but their own experience in Europe as the victims of the powerful has prevented such a response. The Holocaust has brought back the memory of Egypt, and the taskmasters which behavior every Jew repudiates.  Consideration for the Palestinian civilian population keeps Israel from responding with the viciousness of the Russians, or even the US were either in the same situation. No other nation has been so patient with terrorism as have the Jews. Instead of praise the Jews are often portrayed as crafty and evil.

Jewish refusal to act like the rest of the world has a Biblical foundation. There is a tenderness that has been hidden to most underneath the brutality of the Middle East conflict. The Jews suffer the brutality, but refrain from unleashing all their power. The Palestinians think this is a weakness to be exploited, but do not realize they are dealing with the God of the Bible who has given the Jews sovereignty over them. It will be the demise of all Islam

The Palestinians use woman and children as cannon fodder as the leadership murders them on suicide missions for their own personal power gains. The leadership is in a continual power struggle resulting in intimidation, and even assasinations. This Palestinian culture is ripe for judgment. The Jews do not have the heart to be God's instrument of destruction, nor is that God's plan. Ezekiel 39 will end all Islamic influence over the Holy Land. The Jews will be pursuing an impossible peace when Islam invades. It will be God who feeds the invaders to the fowls and beasts on the mountains and fields on the land of Israel! The Jews will be at rest thinking they are safe from the gentiles by treaty when this underhanded invasion takes place. The world will only find peace from Islam through the judgment of the "Last Jihad!"

 

 

The Last Jihad

Ezek 39:1-5
39:1 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:

3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.

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.

Israel Protests to UN Against Hizbullah
11:44 Aug. 10, '03 / 12 Av 5763

Israel has submitted an official protest in the United Nations against Hizbullah's recent attacks. Although it is quiet in the north this morning, the terrorists from Lebanon fired numerous volleys of mortar shells towards various Israeli locations yesterday and the day before. Shrapnel hit two homes in Kiryat Shmonah, and two residents were treated for shock.

In its official protest, Israel warns Lebanon and Syria that if they do not restrain the Hizbullah terrorists, Israel will be forced to take action to protest its citizens. Lebanese and Syrian officials justified the Hizbullah attack, and one of them even said that the fact that Israel is protesting to the UN is evidence that Israel cannot take military action.

The last time Israel protested to the United Nations was following the double terrorist attack in Kenya last November.
 

 

 

The unfinished part of the War with Iraq being the inclusion of Syria is now stirring.  There is no Biblical insight into Syrian inclusion as there was no Biblical insight into the Iraq war. It is just common sense that  Syria should have been included with needed regime change.

Israel needs secure boarders. Security on the Syrian and Lebanon boarders would complete the circle. Egypt and Jordan are not actively hostel anymore, and should Syria experience what happened in Iraq it would secure both of the last troubled boarder areas. A peace of sorts would be possible. The immediate Islamic Arab neighbors would no longer threaten Israel. The mortar attacks from outside Israel would come to an end. Hizbullah would be thrust all the way back to Iran. The Palestinians would be cut off from the last major source of smuggled arms.

A false peace for Israel is predicted in the Bible. It is not specified how it will happen. All that is know is that the Jews will be at rest. They will be dwelling in safety as the "Last Jihad" Islamic invasion takes place. Today, only Syria stands in the way of such a potential peace. Israel has long ago realized that peace with Islam is impossible. The practical dream has been to pacify their immediate Arab neighbors giving them a buffer from the rest. Egypt and Jordan fulfill half the dream, and the pacification of Syria would complete Israel's secular hopes for peace.

This would be a gentile peace that leaves out God.  It is doomed to fail!

 

 

Ezek 38:11-12

11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,

12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.

Tisha B'Av Political Follow-up

Sadly, the massive turnout for the Walk around the Walls of the Old City was not deemed significant by the media and was deliberately ignored by television, radio and the press the following day. It is as if there is a deliberate effort on the part of the media not to report about any nationalistic events which will arouse in the Jewish People a sense of pride in their ancient heritage or homeland.  Then too, there is a definite prejudice on the part of the media to report on anything that smacks religiously of Israel's or Judaism's deep roots in this Land.  It is as if the media as a whole, and those who write for it locally, no longer possess any pride in being Jewish.  As far as the foreign press, and for that matter the local press as well, they too avoid any positive reporting of things that would be considered promoting religious adherence.

It was the eighth such annual event which the Women in Green sponsor each year on the evening of Tisha B'Av.  It was, as always, an exhilarating experience for all those tens of thousands of people who participated in this spiritual Event. ...

In effect, the Tisha B'Av Walk which Women in Green sponsors is a strong factor in keeping the City of Jerusalem unified and under Jewish control, as it has always been.

When the Walk arrived at the Lion's Gate, everyone sat down on the roadway and heard the evening speakers.  The Minister of Tourism, Rav Benny Elon explained the significance of Tisha B'Av  to the Jewish People today.  Their Holy Temples were destroyed thousands of years ago, and while they mourn the spiritual loss of where the G-d of Israel resided, they remain resolute in their determination that the Third Temple will be rebuilt in the holy city of Jerusalem in the not too distant future.  He thanked the Women in Green for their devotion to Israel, its people and its Torah, and reminded us that Jewish women have always been recognized as being responsible for the survival of the Jewish People.

Former Member of the Knesset Moshe Peled spoke next.  He reminded us that it was through this Lion's Gate that the IDF and he, entered the Old City and recaptured the Temple Mount, the Western Wall and the Old City of Jerusalem.  He pointed out that he has become convinced of late that it was vital and necessary to go back to our historical roots, and teach them to our youth so that they have a realistic understanding of our attachment to this Promised Land and our traditions. ...

The Woman in Green are political as all other Jewish groups now showing interest in the Temple Mount. Their vision is of pride in their past heritage not present repentance caused by the G-d whom they honor with their lips only. They have it right about the importance of the Temple Mount. They have it right about the building of the Third Jewish Holy Temple. But, they have no vision of how to accomplish this holy endeavor. 

The Temple must be kosher! Not just kosher to the present inadequately informed Rabbis, but kosher to the perfectly pure and holy God of the Bible! Only divine revelation will produce the perfection required by this God. Prophets must again be raised up! God must directly intervene. Even the best of mankind is not capable of such holy requirements.

The Bible tells of a yet future raising-up of two such prophets who will commune with the God of the Bible directly. Nothing will be able to stop their witness to the world. The power of God will again be manifested through them, and the world will tremble! I'm convinced their testimony will be the Third Holy Jewish Temple being built on the Temple Mount in defiance of the entire world! I'm convinced the Two Witnesses of Revelation chapter 11 will build Ezekiel's (Ezekiel 40 - 48) Temple that will be completed before the mid-point of the Great Tribulation.  That Temple will be defiled by the antichrist, but only for 3 1/2 years. It will be cleansed in time for the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ at the end of the Great Tribulation when He will bring in the Kingdom of Heaven!

The Temple of Revelation 11 like the Temple of Ezekiel 40 - 48 are properly kosher. They are not manmade replicas. They are acceptable to God! They both have altars where acceptable blood sacrifices are offered. They both are filled with Jews who's hearts are circumcised, or the sacrifices would be rejected. A new dispensation is almost here. It centers in the coming Jewish Temple that will be built on the present Temple Mount!

The secular media will never report events leading up to these miraculous fulfillments. Just as they ignore the Woman in Green's secular efforts in Jerusalem, so also will they ignore the Two Witnesses when they begin their testimony in Jerusalem.

HaNegbi: Temple Mount Will be Opened Next Week
12:22 Aug. 12, '03 / 14 Av 5763


Public Security Minister Tzachi HaNegbi announced yesterday that the Temple Mount would be opened next week to Jews and Christians. Although some Moslems have called the announcement premature, and some left-wing Israelis have criticized HaNegbi's declaration, it appears that Egyptian-mediated negotiations with the Waqf have in fact been successful and the site will be open. A Waqf official said today that the reason for the Waqf's sudden consent is economic; the influx of tourists will mean significant financial profits for the Waqf.


Two Dead in Two Terror Attacks
11:21 Aug. 12, '03 / 14 Av 5763

Two Israelis were killed in two separate Palestinian terrorist attacks this morning. It was originally thought that there might have been a connection between the two attacks, but Shomron Brigade Commander Col. Har'el Knafu says that they were in fact not carried out by the same organization. "The only connection between them is that in both cases the terrorists came from Shechem," he said.

Shortly after 9:00, the first suicide bomber blew himself up inside a supermarket in the N'vei Afek neighborhood of eastern Rosh HaAyin. One person was killed, and eight were wounded, including four in moderate-to-serious condition. Less than an hour later, another suicide terrorist detonated himself at a bus-stop outside the Shomron city of Ariel, killing two people. Two others, a man and a woman, were wounded and are being operated on.

Eyewitnesses to the Ariel attack reported to the police the type of car that apparently dropped off the terrorist, and even its license number. It was in fact caught at a checkpoint just to the west of Ariel shortly afterwards. The driver, a resident of Shechem, is being interrogated at this hour. The police originally suspected that the driver may have dropped off not only "his" terrorist, but also the one in the Rosh HaAyin attack and even possibly an additional one as well. Israel Police established an intensive terror alert throughout the Sharon region this morning, and reduced it towards the afternoon.
 

 

 

The hudna Islamic style ceasefire continues. Most of the suicide bombers of the last weeks were caught before detonation, but two managed to get through this last time. The Islamic war against the Jews is one of animalistic terrorism. They attack supermarkets and bus stops not to win a war, but to terrorize the Jewish population. They release their nurtured conscienceless wild animals to maim and kill Jewish civilians. They party all night long when successful. This Islamic influenced culture is another despicable example of the unity of phony religion and government. They lie openly when they say peace and ceasefire. It is their culture. It is justified because these are Jews.

The Temple Mount was used to insight, and further nurture the wildest fanatics of their society. The death toll of the present infatada is justified by Sharon's visit to the Mount back in 2000. Hundreds of young Palestinians were convinced they must become martyrs by their leaders. That same leadership is now saying it will be alright for Sharon to visit the Mount as long as they are paid. It is blood money bought by a corrupted society that is despicable both in the eyes of the world, and in the eyes of God!

The Mount does not belong to the tourists anymore then it belongs to Islam. The Temple Mount belongs to the God of the Bible! This despicable world is about to be taught what Biblical righteousness is about. Absolute purity and holiness will again come to the Temple Mount. It has always been the plan of God as revealed in the Bible that the Temple Mount would again become the center of all government, and all religion. The blood shed over the Temple Mount by the Islamic bombers is now known to be as worthless as the excrement's their brothers spread on the Mount of Olivet last week. The Third Holy Jewish Temple soon to be built on the Temple Mount will again have an altar where blood sacrifice will be honored in remembrance of the purity and holiness released on the world at Calvary. True righteousness will come again to planet earth when the Lord Jesus Christ returns to establish His Kingdom. Religion and government will then be unified in perfect righteousness!

 

 

Ezekiel's Future Temple

Ezek 43:13-18

13 And these are the measures of the altar after the cubits: The cubit is a cubit and an hand breadth; even the bottom shall be a cubit, and the breadth a cubit, and the border thereof by the edge thereof round about shall be a span: and this shall be the higher place of the altar.
14 And from the bottom upon the ground even to the lower settle shall be two cubits, and the breadth one cubit; and from the lesser settle even to the greater settle shall be four cubits, and the breadth one cubit.
15 So the altar shall be four cubits; and from the altar and upward shall be four horns.
16 And the altar shall be twelve cubits long, twelve broad, square in the four squares thereof.
17 And the settle shall be fourteen cubits long and fourteen broad in the four squares thereof; and the border about it shall be half a cubit; and the bottom thereof shall be a cubit about; and his stairs shall look toward the east.
18 And he said unto me, Son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; These are the ordinances of the altar in the day when they shall make it, to offer burnt offerings thereon, and to sprinkle blood thereon.

Public Security Minister Tzachi HaNegbi announced yesterday that the Temple Mount would be opened next week to Jews and Christians - either by agreement with the Waqf, or otherwise.

Israel intends to re-open Jerusalem's Temple Mount to non-Muslim visitors next week, with or without the consent of the Islamic Wakf that administers the site, Knesset members were told Monday.

The announcement follows a police decision to bar an Israeli legislator from entering the site during the Jewish fast of Tisha B'Av last week commemorating the destruction of the first and second temples.

"The Temple Mount will be reopened to non-Muslim visitors with or without agreement," Internal Security Minister Tzahi Hanegbi told a special Knesset committee called to discuss the nearly three year closure of Judaism's holiest site to Jewish and Christian visitors.

Hanegbi added that police were giving the Islamic Trust one final week to agree to reopen the site to non-Muslims, but said failing that Israel would "act unilaterally to restore the status quo that existed at the site for over thirty years."

Fearing renewed Palestinian violence police have barred non-Muslims from entering the ancient compound since then-opposition leader Ariel Sharon controversially visited in September 2000.

But in the Knesset session Monday, Hanegbi endorsed the words of former Jerusalem police chief Aryeh Amit, who called the decision to close the Mount in 2000 a "major strategic error," which played into the hands of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat. Araftat used the incident as a pretext for launching the pre-planned armed intifada against Israel in the name of defending the al-Aqsa mosque.

Wakf officials, meanwhile, have called on Muslims across the Middle East to protect the Al-Aqsa mosque which now occupies the site from "Jewish extremists" who they claim are intent on destroying it.

The Islamic Trust recently instructed Palestinian preachers to use their Friday sermons to highlight the "dangers and threats" posed by Israel to the site. One such sermon, broadcast by PA-controlled television accused  "the occupation" (Israel) of "a programmed and organized demolition."

 

 

 

Friday after Moslem prayers will be the day that determines what will happen next at the Temple Mount. Islam is calling on the masses to release their animalistic rage on the Jews once again. The Temple Mount has become the focal point of Islamic rage as things are just not going their way. Israel is prepared to crack down on all the expected riots. Israel has decided the Temple Mount has worth. Israel is finally assuming the responsibility for the miraculous sovereignty God has given them over the Mount. This is only the beginning.

It will be interesting to see if the Islamic masses are willing to shed the blood of their youth again for a few vindictive old men. The propaganda has been intense, and the Palestinian hate shows no sign of abating. Everything seems to point to another round of extreme violence. Behind all this God is testing the will of this generation of Jews. The Temple Mount is not going to come cheap. Right now it is just Jewish pride, but soon it will become a mandate from the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Right now, it is just forcing Islam to be reasonable. Soon, it will be the destruction of all the heathen Moslem shrines on the Temple Mount as the God of the Bible demands it be cleansed for the construction of the Third Holy Jewish Temple!

The Temple Mount is destine to be the center of conflict as the next dispensation approaches. The gentle Lord Jesus Christ became the center of conflict in His day. Only at the Temple Mount was His righteous anger physically demonstrated at both the beginning and end of His ministry. The testimony of Jesus on the Temple Mount is an ominous sign to this generation as His Second Coming approaches. Woe to all who would stand defiantly in His way on the Mount!

 

Isa 8:16-18

16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.

17 And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.

18 Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.

P.A. Again Encouraging Suicide Bombings
19:31 Aug 13, '03 / 15 Av 5763

The PA is once again broadcasting anti-Israel incitement, in the form of a music video on television. Itamar Marcus of PMW has the details.

Two days ago - before the twin suicide bombings in Rosh HaAyin and Ariel - Itamar Marcus, director of Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), informed the public that the PA was once again broadcasting anti-Israel incitement. Specifically, a music video praising suicide terrorism had returned to the air. Speaking on Israel's Channel Ten and on IDF Radio, Marcus warned,  "That this message has returned quickly, after several weeks during which we did not see it, is very serious - as they are showing men once again that it is a good idea to become a shahid (martyred in an act of terrorism)."

The music video, which depicts an Arab martyr joining beautiful maidens in heaven, has been broadcast hundreds of times in the PA over the past three years, reports PMW. "Whereas there is clearly no causal link between the recent broadcast on PA TV and [yesterday's] bombing," the PMW report states, "there may very well be a more important link. The political forces in the PA that control TV and gave the instruction to rebroadcast this music video encouraging martyrdom are quite possibly the same political forces that gave the OK to go ahead with the attacks."

Similarly, PMW reports, PA religious leaders have recently emphasized the heavenly reward for suicide bombings. As broadcast on PA TV on August 17: "When the shahid meets his Maker, all his sins are forgiven from the first gush of blood. He is exempted from the 'torments of the grave' (judgment); he sees his place in paradise, he is shielded from the great shock, and marries 72 dark eyed virgins. He is a heavenly advocate for 70 members of his family, on his head is placed a crown of honor, one stone of which is worth more than all there is in this world."

 

 

 

Islam is a religion for sexual perverts. Dirty old men control over one billion followers of Allah, and his prophet Mohamed. They openly flaunt their sexually perverted theology of an unrealistic paradise. It is aimed mostly at the animalistic lusts of  young boys. It is not the vindictive old men who are the suicide bombers! It is the children!

The God of the Bible is about to judge this perverted culture. It is not that the Jews are so righteous for they are not, but because Islam has become so perverted. Islam is about to face the judgment of God coming in the form of dispensational change because they have become so wicked! Never has a religion offered their young boys 70 sex kittens for the suicide murder of Jewish civilians. The call is to kill Jews! Any Jews! Woman and children soft targeted Jews are preferred for success. And, for committing such conscienceless murder the god of this religion will give them perverted sex. Not even the filthy hardcore pornographers have been so brazen as to suggest such a phony paradise after death.

The time is right for Ezekiel 39 to be fulfilled! This perverted Islamic religion has reached the depths of depravity. Righteousness in this religion has become sexual perversion and murder. The God of righteousness has limits to His tolerance. The bold murder of both Islamic and Jewish children has reached the lows of Molech worship. This sin is one in which should Israel ignore it they call down the wrath of God on themselves for their inaction.

The Old Testament is coming back to life as we approach dispensational change. The regulations against the sacrificing of children anywhere within the bounds of the Holy Land should no longer be ignored. The penalties for ignoring the righteousness of the God of the Bible are terrible! Woe to the man Jew or gentile who does not respond to this present Islamic culture  that so openly and defiantly giveth their seed to Molech.

 

 

The Murder of Children

(In The Holy Land)

Lev 20:1-5
20:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

2 Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.

3 And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.

4 And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:

5 Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.

Turkey asks U.S. to foil Israeli plans for Mount

By Zvi Bar'el, Haaretz Corresponden

ANKARA - Turkey on Thursday asked the United States to intervene urgently to halt Israel's plan to allow non-Muslims to visit and pray on the Temple Mount.

The request came after Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat appealed to the Turkish premier, saying that opening the Temple Mount to non-Muslims would rekindle violence in the Middle East.

In a message delivered to the U.S. embassy in Ankara, Turkey warned that visits by non-Muslims to the Temple Mount could negatively impact on its ability to implement its recent decision to accede to a U.S. request to send Turkish troops to Iraq. The government's decision must still be approved by the Turkish parliament.

"We do not need a religious struggle on the Temple Mount when we are facing an internal struggle in Turkey over sending troops to Iraq," a senior Turkish official said. "A religious eruption over this issue could cause anti-American demonstrations in Turkey, leading parliament to oppose assistance to the Americans."

Turkish sources said they hope that the transmission of their message to Israel via the U.S. will be enough to persuade Israel to reconsider its plan to allow visits by non-Muslims to the Temple Mount. "However, if it turns out that the message has not been understood, we will apparently have to transmit sharper and clearer messages," one official said.

The sources said that Turkish policy toward Israel has not changed, but "Israel must understand the interests of Turkey and the U.S. These are not limited to the question of the Temple Mount but extend to events in the entire region."

Meanwhile, no decision has yet been made regarding a date for a planned visit to Israel by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The main obstacle to the visit is Israel's insistence that Erdogan not meet with Yasser Arafat. Turkey holds that Arafat is a leader who should not be boycotted. The Turkish prime minister's visit is expected to take place before the end of the year, but if Israel maintains its opposition to the Arafat visit, Erdogan will have to make separate visits to Israel and to the Palestinian Authority.

Turkey has contributed $50 million to the Palestinian Authority since 1993, and intends to contribute additional money when Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas pays an expected official visit to Ankara in September. Turkey is also advising the Palestinians on the framing of a constitution. Ankara has proposed that the Palestinians adopt a constitution similar to Turkey's, creating a secular democratic state in which Islamic law is not a source of legislation. But Palestinian experts  oppose this idea, mainly due to pressure from Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

 

 

The international opposition  is increasing as God forces His will on the gentile world! The importance of the Temple Mount is rising to international prominence. It will soon be the Jews against the will of the entire non-Jewish world. Right now the secular Jews are open to compromise. The conflict over the Temple Mount is only worth the political gains or loss. Soon, it will be God Himself making the Temple Mount the center of world conflict. God will not compromise! The entire world must submit, or judgment will be the consequence. The God of the Bible has already shown He will destroy all the rebels in one full sweep as was done in the days of Noah. Islam now stands on the brink of such Judgment by defiantly standing in the way of the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible is clear that when the Lord does return it will be to the Temple Mount. On that day, a Third Holy Jewish Temple will be there for Him to establish His Kingdom! A Temple with a throne! Ezekiel's Temple!

Modern Turkey is destine to the judgment of Ezekiel 39. All fundamental Bible scholars agree Togarmah is Turkey. They will join with the Northern prong of the three pronged Moslem invasion of Israel. The Islamic hordes of the old USSR will flow over the Caucus Mountains rushing across Turkey, and the Turks will join this fanatical charge toward Israel and Jerusalem. It will be to their death and destruction! The Bible says they will be made a feast for the birds and beasts by the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob!

The Temple Mount, and the building of the Third Holy Jewish Temple may well be the straw that breaks the camel's back leading to this horrendous event. Islam is about to find it is expendable to the God of the Bible when it tries to stand in the way of the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ! Modern Turkey is about to find it's destiny on the dung heap of all past nations that tried to stand in opposition to God!

Idi Amin, former dictator of Uganda, dies at 80

By The Associated Press

JIDDAH - Idi Amin called himself "a pure son of Africa," but his bizarre and murderous eight years as president of Uganda typified the worst of the continent's military dictatorships. Amin, who died Saturday, was 80, Ugandan officials said, though other sources had him born in 1925. Amin, who had lived for years in exile in this Saudi port city, had been hospitalized on life-support since July 18. He was in a coma and suffering from high blood pressure when he was first admitted to the King Faisal Specialist Hospital. Later, hospital staff said he suffered kidney failure. ...

Obote once called Amin "the greatest brute an African mother has ever brought to life." President Jimmy Carter said events in Uganda during Amin's rule "disgusted the entire civilized world." Ugandans initially welcomed Amin's rise to power, and his frequent taunting of Britain, former colonial ruler of much of Africa, often played well on the continent. ...

But his penchant for the cruel and extravagant became evident in 1972, when he expelled tens of thousands of Asians who had controlled the country's economy. Suddenly deprived of its business class, the East African nation plummeted into economic chaos. Amin declared himself president-for-life of his landlocked country of 24 million, awarded himself an array of medals and ran the country with an iron  fist, killing real and imagined enemies.

Human rights groups say from 100,000 to 500,000 people were killed during his 8-year rule. Bodies were dumped into the Nile River because graves couldn't be dug fast enough. At one point, so many bodies were fed to crocodiles that the remains occasionally clogged intake ducts at Uganda's main hydroelectric plant at Jinja.

In 1976 a Palestinian group hijacked an Air France airliner to Entebbe Airport in Uganda and kept its Israeli passengers as hostages.  Israeli commandos flew to Entebbe under cover of darkness and rescued the captives. Amin claimed he had been trying to negotiate a peaceful resolution, but there was plenty of evidence that he was in league with the hijackers.

Amin's overreaching designs led to his downfall after his troops failed in their attempt to annex parts of Tanzania in October, 1978. Tanzanian troops counter-invaded, routed Amin's Soviet- and Arab-equipped army and reached the Ugandan capital, Kampala, in April 1979. Amin, a convert to Islam, fled to Libya, then Iraq and finally Saudi Arabia, where he was allowed to settle provided he stayed out of politics. In later months, he was joined by one of his two wives and his 22 children.  ...

Amin, meanwhile, moved into a luxury house in the Red Sea port city of Jiddah, with cars, drivers, cooks and maids paid for by the Saudi government. He would occasionally telephone journalists abroad to announce fantastical schemes to reconquer Uganda, or to protest against cuts in his gasoline allowance. But the Saudis got angry and made him stop.

In a rare interview in 1999, Amin told a Ugandan newspaper he liked to play the accordion, fish, swim, recite from the Quran and read. He said most of his food - including fresh cassava, cassava flour and millet flour - still came from Uganda. He was sometimes spotted on evening walks along the coast or attending Friday prayers in a nearby mosque.

 

 

 

There are no fancy seaside homes, or cars, or servants for Idi Amin now! The torments of his deeds are now being inflicted on him. His victims suffered but a moment. He will suffer for eternity! There will never be an appeal. Mercy has passed him by. There will never be enough torment to ease the pain for future years. Hell is the place of absolute hopelessness. There is no hope of death to end the torment! It just goes on and on.

God has said He designed hell for the fallen angels, but fallen men will also find their eternal destiny in this horrific place. It is hard to understand how God who exemplifies such loving kindness as revealed in the Bible could also exhibit such righteous wrath in the same book? It is what makes the Bible true when compared to the Koran which gave this unrepentant monster such comfort at the end of his life!

The truth is that without Christ there is only eternity in hell! Only the blood shed at Calvary has the power to wash away sin. The Bible is clear that the blood will only be applied to those who  have come with all their heart, with all their soul, and with all their might! There is no other way! It was the plan from the very beginning. The Lord Jesus Christ would come climaxing all human history as the only perfect acceptable sacrifice for sin. He was resurrected from the dead as proof His blood is acceptable. He is coming again to Israel, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. That time according to the Bible, and the return of the Jews to the Holy Land - is now!

Matt 11:28-30

28
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
KJV

 

 

 


Hell

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.

Israeli Jets Buzz Asssad's Palace
19:49 Aug 17, '03 / 19 Av 5763

F-16 battle planes flew low for several minutes over Assad's palace in northern Syria, after easily getting through the country's radar defenses.
 

Israel's Air Force signaled Syrian President Assad loud and clear last week: "Keep your Hizbullah terrorists away." F-16 battle planes flew low for several minutes over Assad's palace in northern Syria, after easily getting through the country's radar defenses.

Israel has attacked Syrian radar stations in Lebanon once since the IDF's withdrawal from the country three years ago, but this time - after a teenaged boy was killed in a Hizbullah rocket attack in Shlomi last week - Israel settled for the symbolic overflight. Military sources said that the message was well received, together with other, more diplomatic Israeli warnings to Syria, and that Hizbullah has in fact quieted down over the past few days.
 

 

 

God has given Israel the power to subdue their enemies, but He has not given them the order to do so. I doubt the Jews have it within their capacity to  indiscriminately destroy civilian targets as the Allies did in World War Two. They certainly have the justification! The holocaust has made the Jews different from the rest of the world. They know what it is like to be the victim, and now that they have the power they will not use it. They have remembered Egypt, and the Egyptian taskmasters. The Jewish response to the worst episode of terrorism ever recorded in human history has been subdued in relation to what they could do. There is a sensitivity that the Arabs have discovered, and exploited. To Islam it is considered weakness. Islam knows what it would do were the situation reversed. There is no sensitivity for Jews in the Islamic world. There is only hate! It is what makes the Middle East conflict never-ending.

The order from God is coming soon. God knows the hate that will wheal-up  among Islam when the order is given to cleanse the Temple Mount in preparation for the Third Holy Jewish Temple. The order for the Jews to destroy Islam will never be given. Instead, God has planned to bring Islam onto the mountains and fields of the Holy Land in one great hate filled invasion where they will be destroyed. It is God who will do the terrible deed of destruction. It will be done in righteous justice to a religious culture gone bad. It will end all Islamic influence over the Holy Land, and open the door for building the next Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. Read Ezekiel chapter 38 & 39! Note in this passage the purpose behind the destruction of Islam.  It will be to male known to the heathen, and to Israel that it is the God of the Bible changing dispensations. The gentile Church age is ending, and the Jewish Kingdom age is beginning.

Syria sees the handwriting on the wall. It is yet to be determined if they will submit as Egypt and Jordan to the return of the Jews to the Holy Land. The whole world must submit to God's plan for the coming dispensation. Should any nation or religion not be willing to submit to the Jewish return, and Jewish sovereignty; The same will never submit to the return of the Lord Jesus Christ!

Warning: Israel Stands Alone Regarding Right of Return 89
18:39 Aug 18, '03 / 20 Av 5763

Following Nabil Shaath's remarks demanding the 'right of return' to Israel for hundreds of thousands of Arabs, Israeli journalist and analyst David Bedein of the ____ wrote why Israelis should be very concerned.

"Nabil Shaath declared," Bedein wrote, "that the US-sponsored road map mandates the right of Palestinian Arab refugees to return to villages from 1948 which have been replaced by cities, collective farms and woodlands in the present-day State of Israel. Surprisingly, Shaath was correct. All you have to do is to read the Road Map at "www.un.org/media/main/roadmap122002.html" to know that the Saudi initiative, which supports the right of return, provides the basis for the Road Map..."

"Thousands of maps recently issued and distributed by the Palestinian National Authority in Arabic and in English," Bedein writes, "provide a clear guide for Palestinian Arab refugees and their descendants to forcibly take back the 531 Arab villages lost in 1948 which have been replaced by Israeli cities, collective farms and woodlands."

Even though Shaath supposedly reversed himself the next day, Bedein and IMRA note that a widely-circulated PA press release, still found at "www.palestine-pmc.com/details.asp?cat=1&id=994", clearly states, "No condition has been set for a return [only] to an independent Palestinian state."

Where does the U.S. stand on this issue? Not with Israel. Bedein writes:

"Shimon Shiffer, Senior Diplomatic Correspondent for Israel's Yediot Acharonot newspaper, reported on May 23, 2003, two days before the Israeli government ratified the Road Map, that the Americans "rejected one of Israel's central demands, namely, that the Palestinian Arabs would agree to concede the right of return in return for Israel's recognition of a Palestinian Arab state. They also rejected Israel's demand to remove the Saudi proposal - which includes a full withdrawal to the June 4, 1967 lines and Israel's recognition of the right of return, in return for full Arab recognition of Israel - as one of the main sources of the Road Map's authority.
"Israel has requested that the US, Canada, the EU and the Scandinavian countries who are involved in Middle East negotiations issue a clear statement of opposition to the Arab demand for the 'right of return.' However, none of them will do so.

"Checking with ranking diplomats from the US, Canada, the EU and Scandinavia, I have discovered that all diplomatic missions in Israel, including the US, demand that Israel allow some refugees to return. They universally quote a recent Palestinian poll that "only 10%" of the Palestinian Arab refugees would want to return to their villages that they left in 1948.

"Well, since UNRWA counts 3.9 million people who qualify as 'Palestinian Arab refugees,' that would mean that Israel would have to absorb some 400,000 Arabs who would claim their homes and villages which are now in the heart of Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and Haifa along with hundreds of kibbutzim and moshavim.

"Israel stands alone in its position that Arab refugees and their descendants have no legal or moral right to take back their villages from 1948.
"However, the Road Map is based on precisely that presumption. Most Israelis do not know that. [This is because Israeli media over the past ten years have had] a tendency to downplay any negative prognosis of the 'peace process.' ...

 

 

 

It is true! Israel does stand alone. Gentile politics do not take into consideration what God has said in the Bible. In many ways the Bible is a forbidden book for any political person to refer to as a guide. Only the Jews can use the Bible as the authority to their right of return. The best the Palestinian Arabs can do is trace their Biblical heritage to Ishmael and Esau who both are clearly rejected by the God of the Bible!

There has been a recent attempt to redact history by the foolish Palestinian leadership. They try to claim land heritage by claiming Philistine heritage which is absolutely ridiculous. The gullible press who will print anything, and believe anything against the Jews are the only ones who give this unequivocal lie credence. The foolishness of it all is that the God of the Bible rejects the Philistines as He does Ishmael and Esau. The Palestinians as well claim themselves the children of Satan in their foolish attempts to find some historical claim to the Holy Land.

Those who are already cast out the politicians are now trying to give the right to return. It is foolishness! The God of the Bible will never approve the unrepentant children of the bondwoman bound into sin become part of the Holy Land. It is only through Christ that the bondage of sin can be broken. It is only through Christ that any Arab as any other can find acceptability with the God of the Bible!

 

 

Palestinian Arabs Rejected

Gen 21:9-12

9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham, mocking.

10 Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son: for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac.

11 And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight because of his son.

12 And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called.
KJV


Gal 4:23-31

23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.
24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.
25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.
27 For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.
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.
31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.

15 killed in suicide bombing on bus in downtown Jerusalem

By Amos Harel and Jonathan Lis, Haaretz Correspondents, Haaretz Service and Agencies

At least 15 people were killed, including a number of children, and dozens were wounded in a suicide bombing Tuesday night on a bus in downtown Jerusalem. The explosion occured at around 9 P.M. in the Shmuel Hanavi neighborhood of the capital, close to French Hill.

Of the wounded, 13 are in serious condition, 13 sustained moderate to serious wounds and the rest were lightly injured.  The White House condemned the attack, and urged the Palestinians to dismantle the terrorist organizations.

Jerusalem police chief Mickey Levy said that the bomb had been a large one, and that bus was still being checked for further explosive devices.

Most of the people on the bus, which was travelling from the Western Wall to the religious neighborhood of Har Nof, were ultra-Orthodox Jews, Channel One Television reported. Police are checking the possibility that the terrorist was disguised as a Haredi Jew, the report said.

Reuters journalist Barry Moody said from the scene that two buses were hit by the blast. He said one - on which the suicide bomber is thought to have set off his explosive device - was completely devastated, while the other - travelling behind - had its windows blown out.

The Magen David Adom rescue service said that at least 74 people were wounded, some in serious condition.

Police have closed the site off to traffic and have asked the public to keep away from the scene of the blast.

There has as yet been no claim of responsibility, although the militant Islamic Jihad orgazination has vowed revenge for the August 14 killing of senior official Mohammed Sidr during his arrest by IDF troops in the West Bank city of Hebron.

This is not the first attack since militant Palestinian groups declared a temporary cease-fire on June 29. On August 12, two Israelis were killed in near-simultaneous suicide attacks, one in the West Bank settlement of Ariel and the other in the town of Rosh Ha'ayin, close to the Green Line.

Hamas said it was behind the Ariel attack, saying it was in response to the deaths of three of its activists during an IDF raid in Nablus. The Fatah-linked Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades took responsibility for the Rosh Ha'ayin attack.


Terrorist Was Dressed as an Orthodox Jew
22:30 Aug 19, '03 / 21 Av 5763

(IsraelNN.com) The suicide bomber who perpetrated tonight’s attack on board a #2 bus was dressed as an Orthodox Jew, based on statements provided by survivors.

Jerusalem Police Chief Mickey Levy confirmed a short time ago that the bomb was large, explaining the total destruction of the bus.


20 dead, including UN envoy, in bombing at UN in Baghdad

By News Agencies

A massive truck bomb devastated the United Nations headquarters in Baghdad on Tuesday, killing at least 20 people and wounding scores more, a UN official said. The international body later confirmed that the UN enovy to Iraq, 55-year-old Brazilian Sergio Vieira de Mello, had died after being trapped in the rubble of his office after the blast.
 

 

 

These were Jews who traveled to the edge of the Temple Mount to pray at the Wailing Wall. The targeting of these particular Jews was an act of defiance against what God is doing with the Jews of this generation. The conflict over the Temple Mount is growing. The violent opposition to God's plan to build the Third Holy Jewish Temple is clear. Islam is intent on making the God of the Bible concede to some type of compromise over the Temple Mount for now with the long term goal of overthrowing His authority altogether. Islam wants their heathen god Allah to lift them onto world dominance. The method of this Satanic heathen god is terrorism! The murder of little children becomes a righteous cause as long as they are Jewish.

Islamic hate for the Jews, and their defiant actions against the changing dispensations is not just a local problem for the Jews. The whole world is being sucked into the conflict over the Temple Mount. Everything happening in the Middle East can find a link to what is happening at the Temple Mount.

God is determined to draw the Jews back to Him as the Biblical God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Present day Judaism is as corrupt as Islam or Apostate Christianity. Only the Jews are mentioned in the Bible as responding in mass to the coming dispensation. The dispensation of the Church age will end at the rapture. All that will be left behind will be the present apostates who will quickly hate the Jews as much as Islam does right now! The Temple Mount is quickly becoming the symbol of the coming dispensational change. It is the God of the Bible forcing His will on a rebellious world. It is the God of the Bible forcing the world to worship the Lord Jesus Christ as King of kings and LORD of Lords! The Day of the LORD will establish this coming dispensational change!

 

 

The Day of the LORD is Coming to Zion

Joel 2
2:1 Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;
2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.
3 A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.
5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.
6 Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.
7 They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:
8 Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.
9 They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.
10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
11 And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?
12 Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:
13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.
14 Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God?
15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:
16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.
17 Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?
18 Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.
19 Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen:
20 But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill savour shall come up, because he hath done great things.
21 Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things.
22 Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength.
23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil.
25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.
27 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.
28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.
32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.
KJV
 

 

TEMPLE MOUNT REOPENED AGAIN TODAY

Jerusalem police reopened the Temple Mount to non-Muslim visitors on Wednesday, after consultations between senior officers and representatives of the Muslim Wakf that oversees the site.

Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat ordered the Temple Mount closed to non-Muslims after riots erupted between police and Muslim worshipers the day after Prime Minister Ariel Sharon visited the site in September 2000.

Sharon reopened the site in June and for a few weeks visitors toured the site, but police decided to close the site again a few weeks ago, as tensions grew hot again on the mosque's plaza.

"The goal is that this week will be the last week in which Jews and Christians, or anyone who is not Muslim, is prevented from entering the Temple Mount," said Minister of Public Security Tzachi Hanegbi.

Already, over 150 Jewish worshippers visited the site on Wednesday morning.

Israel Responds to Massacre - and Hamas Declares End to Hudna


20:12 Aug 21, '03 / 23 Av 5763

The hudna - a temporary ceasefire by Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists so that they could regroup and rearm while Israel reduces its anti-terror efforts - has ended. So announced Hamas today, following the killing this afternoon of a top member of the Hamas leadership.

It should be noted that even though a Hamas terrorist massacred 20 Jews in Jerusalem on Tuesday night, this did not signal the end of the hudna for Hamas. In its statement taking credit for the attack, Hamas added a "comforting" qualification: "The hudna is still on, it's just that we have to retaliate when Israel kills our men." [Israeli forces last week killed Muhammad Sieder, who was behind many murderous attacks in the Hevron region, including the bloody Worshipper's Way ambush and the Otniel yeshiva attack.]

Today, however, following Israel's *response* to that massacre (see next paragraph), Hamas declared the hudna over and that it would retaliate. Israeli sources quoted on Ynet responded with derision:
"Hudna, shmudna; the attack in Jerusalem changed the rules altogether. If the Palestinians want to keep Hamas and Islamic Jihad, then let them remain without a state."

What caused Hamas to announce the end of the hudna was Israel's killing of a terrorist leader this afternoon. No sooner did Israel's mini-security cabinet decide that leading terrorist figures were fair game - and Israel Air Force helicopters rained down five rockets this afternoon on the car of one of the most murderous terrorists of all - Ismail Abu Shanab, as well as his two bodyguards. Dozens of Arabs surrounded the burning car immediately afterwards, demanding revenge. Top Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists are reported to have gone underground, for fear of Israel's long arm.

Minister Uzi Landau (Likud), who served as Public Security Minister in the previous government, said today that the return to targeted killings of terrorist leaders is a welcome development - "if it marks the beginning of Israel's uncompromising war on terrorism, but not if it's just a spot reaction here and there."

 

 

Hudna Shmudna is very appropriate. The Islamic style of cease-fire is ridiculous. "Kill the Jews" is the only policy Islam practices no matter how big a lie they passionately tell to the rest of the world. The secular Jews are getting it right when they say the policy of killing the Jews means there will never be a Palestinian State in the Holy Land!

God's policy for the next dispensation is that all of the Holy Land will be Jewish. Strangers will be required to submit to Jewish Law! God will require the same law that applies to the Jews to also be applied equally to the stranger who sojourns in the Land. There is no provision for a separate heathen State in either Judah or Samaria for the strangers.

The Land is special in God's eyes. Men have abused it, but God always treasured it. This was where the Lord Jesus Christ was to walk, minister, and shed His blood. The Biblical holiness attached to Israel has eternal qualities. Christianity always had a global view rather then any particular place. Places like Rome became far more important then Jerusalem throughout Christian history. Only the Jews had a special love for the Biblical Holy Land that survived their 2000 years of dispersion. Only the Jews can bring back the holiness that God always attached to this Land. The future for the Holy Land is Jewish. The next dispensation will require the gentiles to step aside. The promises made to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob particularly exclude the united seed of both Ishmael and Esau. All gentiles are going to be required to submit to the authority of the soon coming Jewish Lord Jesus Christ.

 

 

Ex 6:1-8
6:1 Then the LORD said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land.
2 And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD:
3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.
4 And I have also established my covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were strangers.
5 And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel, whom the Egyptians keep in bondage; and I have remembered my covenant.
6 Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments:
7 And I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God: and ye shall know that I am the LORD your God, which bringeth you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.
8 And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it you for an heritage: I am the LORD.

Child Molester Geoghan Killed in Prison

Former Priest John Geoghan, Child Molester Linked to Church Sex Abuse Scandal, Killed in Prison

BOSTON Aug. 23

Former priest John Geoghan, a convicted child molester who became a central figure in the Catholic church's sex abuse scandal, has been killed in prison, a state public safety spokesman said Saturday.

Geoghan was injured in an incident with another inmate about noon and died shortly after being taken to Leominster Hospital, said Department Of Public Safety spokesman David Shaw.

The other inmate had been isolated and the incident was under investigation.

The church abuse scandal, which has had repercussions worldwide, broke in early 2002 with revelations that the church had shuttled Geoghan from parish to parish despite warnings about his behavior.

The scandal mushroomed after a judge ordered the release of archdiocese files involving dozens of priests, showing repeated examples of the archdiocese shipping priests to different parishes when allegations arose.

Geoghan was convicted in January 2002 of indecent assault and battery for grabbing the buttocks of a 10-year-old boy in 1991 in the first of three criminal cases against him. He was sentenced to nine to 10 years in prison.

In civil lawsuits, more than 130 people have claimed Geoghan sexually abused them as children during his three decades as a priest at Boston-area parishes.

In Sept. 2002, the archdiocese settled with 86 Geoghan victims for $10 million, after pulling out of an earlier settlement of about $30 million.

Mitchell Garabedian, an attorney for numerous Geoghan victims, said he was "surprised and shocked" by Geoghan's death.

"Many of my clients would have rather seen Father Geoghan serve out his time in jail and endure the rigors of further criminal trials, so that his pedophile acts could have been exposed further," he said.

Rev. Christopher Coyne, a spokesman for the Archdiocese of Boston, offered prayers for Geoghan's family.

"Upon hearing the news of the tragic death of John Geoghan, the Archdiocese of Boston offers prayer for the repose of John's soul, and extends its prayers in consolation to his beloved sister, Kathy, at this time of personal loss," he said.

Ralph DelVecchio, a Geoghan victim who settled with the archdiocese last year, said Geoghan deserved prison, but didn't deserve to be killed there.

"I wouldn't say he deserved to die, you know?" DelVecchio said. "He was in jail that's where I believed he should be."

DelVehcchio said he didn't wish ill on Geoghan.

"It's over with," he said.


 

 

No! It is not over with! All the prayers of all the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church will never bring an end to the perverted sin committed by this prince of the Church. He remained unrepentant, and so his future is already decreed in the Bible. The Catholic Church sits back in pompous inactivity consoling their priesthood with the false theology of purgatory, and then release.  It is the false hope of tradition that is contrary to sound Biblical doctrine. This pervert who preyed on little boys will now face the Almighty God of the Bible! The God before whom the popes shake in the knees powerless when coming into His presents. The pure and holy judge will open the books that were kept meticulously on the life of Father John Geoghan. Every thought, every perverted action, everything will be brought to light before sentence is proclaimed. Cast into the lake of fire to be in torment forever is the already known penalty for this self-indulgent life of sin!

The Mullahs of Islam who victimize their little boys into suicidal attacks with promises of a sexually perverted paradise will also have the same judgment decreed on them. It matters not whether Christian, including Episcopalians, or Moslem; Judgment will be swift for all who are guilty of sexual perversion. God is no respecter of persons. Father John Geoghan, the fanatical Mullahs, and the guy who hides in the privacy of his home will find the very thoughts of perverted sex will have eternal consequences that never end!

Only the Lord Jesus Christ provides sin cleansing blood, but He looks into the heart. It is only those who hate their own sin, and cast themselves on the mercy of the Christ of Calvary that will find their names written in another book. Only former perverts are written in the book of life! The God of the Bible can not be fooled. Biblical eternal justice is higher then any religious justice, and will be the only justice in operation during the next dispensation! It is certainly the only justice that Father John Geoghan now finds himself answerable before.

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.

Baptism in the Tigris for U.S. Christian Soldiers
Sun August 24, 2003 07:28 AM ET
By Andrew Cawthorne

TIKRIT, Iraq (Reuters) - Nineteen-year-old Private Bill Goodwin puts down his gun, takes off his combat jacket and steps into the warm waters of Iraq's Tigris River.

"I baptize you in the name of Jesus Christ," proclaims his unit's Protestant chaplain, Xuan Tran, submerging the soldier completely for Sunday's baptism rite. Goodwin emerges smiling and posing for a photo to send to his family in Oklahoma before reflecting on what he has done.

"I have been away for five and a half months and have though a lot about this. I could die here. I realized it was necessary to get baptized," he said.

For many of the 132,000 American soldiers occupying Iraq, religion is an important solace as they face loneliness, hardship and the possibility of losing their lives.

Most profess religious belief, with only a small percentage describing themselves as atheist, their chaplains and commanders say.

Protestants and Catholics make up the majority, although the full spectrum of religions is represented, including Islam.

Chaplain Tran, a Southern Baptist minister, performs regular baptisms of U.S. troops in the waters of the Tigris at a U.S. base in a former palace of Saddam Hussein at his hometown of Tikrit, north of Baghdad.

Many such rituals reflect the widespread evangelical belief that a Christian must be "born again" through adult baptism.

"For some, it is the first time, for others it is a re-dedication of their lives. They face many risks here, and want to make sure they have a right relationship with God," Tran said, before taking Sunday's communion service on the base.

THOU SHALT NOT KILL?

The soldiers see no moral conflict between their Christian faith and their battlefield duties.

Many have killed or wounded Iraqis during the intense hunt for guerrillas and former regime loyalists around Tikrit, a hotbed of anti-American resistance and pro-Saddam sentiment. "The Bible says 'thou shalt not kill' but the original Greek says 'thou shalt not take a judicially innocent life.' Saddam and his men are pretty evil, if they were tried in any court, they would be found guilty," said Goodwin.

"I don't think it's a problem because God sent people to war. Just look at the Old Testament," added Corporal Christian Gaspard, also baptized Sunday.

Lieutenant Colonel Steve Russell, who leads the 1st Battalion, 22nd Regiment, seems to be one of his unit's most devout believers. He has suffered two deaths and 30 injuries among his men so far -- a relatively small toll given several months of round-the-clock raids in Tikrit.

"God is watching over this battalion, believe me," he said.

Most of the Christian soldiers say they believe what they are doing is right because of the brutalities of Saddam's regime. They are only vaguely aware of objections by the international anti-war lobby and the rising dissatisfaction of Iraqis themselves with the occupation.

There is little sympathy among them, however, for the notion that the invasion of Iraq may form part of a wider international clash of civilizations -- Christianity against Islam.

"Maybe we don't understand them (Muslims), but this has nothing to do with religion," added Gaspard, a 24-year-old from Louisiana. "We are here to do what (U.S. President) George Bush said -- find weapons of mass destruction."

 

 

It is not Christianity against Islam, nor is it Judaism against Islam. It is the God of the Bible against a religious culture of  hate and evil!

This must be the ultimate humiliation of Saddam to have Christians being baptized in the Tigris River next to one of his captured palaces. It is also a great humiliation to Islam proving the impotency of Allah right in the heart of a former Islamic stronghold.  The humiliation of Islam has only begun. The finale will be when Ezekiel 39 takes place on the mountains and fields of Israel. The Bible says it will be because Islam invades the Holy Land that the ultimate humiliation will take place. The hate that Islam has nurtured within this generation against the Jews will be their end! These events will happen after the Christian Church steps aside at the rapture. Only apostate Christianity will remain. God has clearly revealed in the Bible that He will again focus on the Jews in the next dispensation. Islam, Apostate Christianity, and all the other gentiles will find their hate for the Jews, and the coming Jewish King will be their downfall during the 7 year Great Tribulation that transitions dispensational change. The fall and humiliation of Islam will foreshadow the fall and humiliation of the entire gentile world at Armageddon! It will only take God 7 short years to end the times of the gentiles, and usher in the Jewish Kingdom age!

Private Bill Goodwin, and Lieutenant Colonel Steve Russell will not be raptured because of some ritual. It will be because they are born again. Baptism is something done out of obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ as a testimony to His saving sacrificial blood being applied to one who was blind, but now can see. This generation is filled with pompous hypocrites who remain willingly blind to the Bible, and the Lord Jesus Christ. They remain willingly blind to the signs of the times! They will soon find the time has run out. There is no greater sin worthy of eternal humiliation in hell then that of rejecting what the Lord Jesus Christ did at Calvary. It is His blood that will be on their hands when it could have been in their heart. They are without excuse!

 

 

John 3:19-21

19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

WAQF OFFICIALS HELD OVER TEMPLE MOUNT SCUFFLE

Israeli officials abandoned plans to extend the opening of the Temple Mount to tourists into Monday afternoon after Muslim worshippers tried to prevent Jewish visitors from entering the site earlier in the day, prompting scuffles with police.

Although there were no arrests at the time, police confirmed on Tuesday that they had arrested three senior officials from the Waqf Islamic Trust that administers the site in relation to the incident.

The three Waqf members were among a group of Muslims that held a prayer service at the Dung Gate on Monday morning in an attempt to physically block the entrance of non-Muslim visitors to the contested Holy place, the most sacred in Judaism.

The recent Israeli decision to allow access to non-Muslims after almost three years of closure during the Palestinian intifada, was made to ensure the continuation of the thirty-year old status quo, whereby Jews and Christians were allowed to visit, but refrain from prayer. Waqf members are reportedly divided on the wisdom of allowing a resumption of tours in the face of strong opposition from Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat.

The minor fracas marked the first Muslim-Jewish conflict at the Temple Mount since the visits resumed a few weeks ago. Police stopped the visits of non-Muslims after Arafat and other Arab leaders issued fiery public remarks on the matter and police feared rioting would ensue.

Nevertheless since the latest re-opening of the Mount last Wednesday, more than 1000 people have toured the site, with most visits passing peacefully and without incident.

Temple Mount Closed Early; What Does Jewish Law Say?
12:57 Aug 25, '03 / 27 Av 5763

Another group of some 40 religious Jews ascended to the Temple Mount today, but a group of Moslems caused a disturbance, and in the end, the holy site was closed to Jewish visitors earlier than planned.

The Temple Mount has been opened and closed several times of late: it was closed almost totally after the outbreak of the Oslo War in September 2000, and re-opened to religious Jews for the first time last month - but only, as in the past, to small groups of 2-4 people.

During the week of Tisha B'Av - when Jews mourn over the destruction of the Temples that stood on the Mount - the site was abruptly closed again, for what the police mysteriously called "operational reasons." Public Security Minister Tzachi HaNegbi said at the time that Jews would soon be allowed to visit once again, and in fact yesterday morning, large groups of 40 at a time were allowed to ascend. Participants said that only minimal restrictions were placed upon them. After this morning's disturbances, however, the police closed the site - first to religious Jews and then to everyone. They said that they would open the mount this afternoon, but did not do so. Tomorrow's schedule is currently not clear, but many supporters plan to be there at 8 AM in any event.

Does Halakhah [Jewish law] permit Jews to enter the Temple Mount? The Bible specifically forbids those who are ritually impure - as we are today - from entering the inner areas of the Holy Temple. However, many hareidi and religious-Zionist rabbis say that after immersion in a mikveh [ritual bath] and taking other precautions, one may enter the other areas of the Temple Mount. Rabbi Yehuda Edri, of the Movement to Establish the Temple, a principal and educational supervisor for ten years in the hareidi Shas Party's El HaMa'yan educational system, spoke about this with Yosef Zalmanson today. "Several of our great sages of the Rishonim period," he said, "such as Maimonides and Ishtori HaParchi, actually set foot on the Temple Mount. In addition, Rabbi Akiva Eiger [d. 1837] tried to find out if the Turks would allow Jews to bring the Passover offering... Over the centuries, the Jews simply got used to not frequenting the Temple Mount because the Moslems allowed neither Christians nor Jews to do so."

Rabbi Edri said that even now, "not one religious authority forbids entry into the Temple Mount per se. It is only that because the sin of entering the Holy of Holies is so grave, they are afraid that Jews who either don't know or don't care will also ascend to the Temple Mount and will enter the wrong places. But this does not affect Jews who do know and who are careful." He agreed that these rulings, ironically, prevent only knowledgeable Jews from entering, while having no influence on those whose entry they wish to stop.

Rabbi Edri said that many members of the hareidi community, including leading rabbis, agree that entry to the Mount under rabbinical supervision is acceptable - but they do not wish to say so publicly. Among those who are outspoken on this topic are Rabbi Yisrael Appel of Bnei Brak, who has discussed this issue with many hareidi rabbis and confirmed this; the well-known Sochatchover educator and Temple Mount supporter Rabbi Yosef Elbaum; Rabbi Yosef Rothstein, Rosh Yeshivat Keter HaTorah in Jerusalem; the Nadvorne Rebbe, Rabbi Elimelech Leifer; Rabbi Yosef Laufer, head of the Kotel HaKatan Kollel; Rabbi Tzvi Rogen, head of Yeshivat Beit HaBechirah in Jerusalem; Rabbi Zalman Koren, who wrote a work on the matter of the permitted place on the Temple Mount; and others.

Zalmanson asked, "What of those who fear that by entering the holy and controversial compound, we are provoking the nations of the world?" Rabbi Edri said,
"On the contrary, we know that in order to conquer it, we are allowed to enter the area even while impure. This is our way of asserting our rights to this holy spot! In fact, the Shabak (General Security Service) has long been in favor of allowing Jewish entry, for exactly this reason - so as not to leave a 'vacuum' in which we abandon our sovereignty. Those who feel that it's a provocation, it's because for so many years we lived in the Exile and had to be worried about what they goyim would do, so we closed ourselves off into the shtiebel... But now, thank G-d, we have a State, and an army, and we can assert our rights. We must remember that foreigners' hold on the Land of Israel is based on their hold on the Temple Mount - the stronger they are there, the stronger they are in the whole country. The Moslems, for many centuries, never claimed that this spot was holy to them - only of late have they done so, in response to [our conquest in the Six-Day War] - and this shows that it's just political machinations on their part."

Rabbi Edri said that former Chief Rabbis Bakshi-Doron and Lau asked Rabbi Yisrael Ariel of the Temple Institute to prepare a pamphlet on the topic: "Rabbi Ariel proved conclusively that the rock under the Dome of the Rock is in fact the Holy of Holies, in accordance with all the accepted opinions. Based on this, he determined the exact places we are permitted to walk. All that is needed is to immerse, not to wear leather shoes - and to know the precise route."

 

 

 

These Rabbis who are the leaven of the Pharisees have it all wrong again. It is not where you walk, but how you walk that matters to God. The whole purpose of the Temple Mount is to bring back Biblical righteousness to the Jews, and the world. Absolute holiness will again be practiced on the Temple Mount. It is the heart that God measures not the feet. There may be good reason why not to wear leather, but a right heart will know what offends God better then these Rabbinical proclamations. What makes the spot where the Holy of Holies stands so sacred is only the presents of God. When God left the First Temple in Ezekiel that spot lost it's holiness, and became only symbolic. What made the Second Temple holy was not the Holy of Holies, but the short visits by the Lord Jesus Christ. What will male this spot holy again will be the return of the Lord Jesus Christ in all His glory at the end of the Great Tribulation. The Jews are charged with the responsibility of administrating this spot now that God has given them the sovereignty. It is symbolically the most sacred spot on the entire planet because it is where the Bible says the Lord Jesus Christ will sit on His throne as King of kings and LORD of Lords! It must be honored and respected until true holiness returns once more to this place.

The Temple Mount is destine to provoke the nations of the world. The Temple Mount will be the spot where the times of the gentiles ends, and the Jewish Kingdom era begins. It is at this spot, the Temple Mount, where the hearts of this generation of Jews will be changed. True Biblical blood sacrifice will again be practiced in acceptable holiness from the Third Holy Jewish Temple soon to be built on this spot. Everything future both ends and starts here at this one place!

Who Shall Enter

Psalms 15

15:1 A Psalm of David
LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?
2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.
3 He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.
4 In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.
5 He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.

Temple Mount: The Good News and the Bad News
20:09 Aug 26, '03 / 28 Av 5763

Some religious Jews have enjoyed their recent visits to the Temple Mount, while others find that they are the victims of pure discrimination.

The initial excitement over the opening of the Temple Mount to Jews appears to be wearing off, and in fact religious Jews are finding it harder and harder to enter. This morning, only one group of about 20 religious Jews was permitted to enter. Afterwards, Jews with beards and kippot (skullcaps) were made to wait for up to an hour and a half before being told that the Mount was closed - while all the while, other Jews and tourists were courteously waved in by the police and blessed with, "Enjoy your visit."

Arutz-7's Yosef Zalmanson recounts:
"I arrived around 9:45 AM, and met one person who had just completed his visit. He told me that everything had gone smoothly. When I arrived at the Mughrabim Gate, however [near the Western Wall], I found that things had apparently taken a turn for the worse. A group of religious Jews was being made to wait, while other tourists were waved straight in. When asked over and over when they would be allowed in, the religious Jews - some of whom had come from as far as Emanuel and Karnei Shomron - were merely told to wait and move back... I soon found out that the direct reason for the delay was the visit of two MKs on the Mount - Gilad Erdan of the Likud and Eliezer Cohen of the National Union. [MK Erdan later called on the Jewish public to visit the Temple Mount. - ed. note] We were happy to hear of their initiative, but felt sure that they would not be happy to learn that their visit was causing us such delays...
"When the MKs completed their visit and were talking to a cameraman, I showed MK Erdan the discrimination and asked him if this was right in his eyes. 'Is it conceivable that in Israel, the Jewish State, religious Jews should be told to wait on the side while other Jews are allowed in?' I asked him. 'Look how they let in some people, while we are forced to wait! Isn't this truly a disgrace?!' He explained that the desired goal of bringing as many Jews as possible to the Temple Mount could be achieved only at a slow pace...
"I again showed him the discrimination going on in front of his eyes, and finally he was in fact moved enough to say, 'Let me go check.' Erdan then returned to the Mount, and returned a few minutes later with good news - he had spoken to the police officer in charge, and we would apparently be let in very soon. Unfortunately, however, he did not stick around long enough to see that just a few minutes later, the police announced to us that the Mount was closed and that we would not be allowed in. It was still 25 minutes before the 'official' closing time, and some of us had come from very far and had waited a long time - but this did not bother the police. 'Come early tomorrow,' were their parting words, 'around 7:30 AM.'"

Rabbi Chaim Richman of the Temple Institute, who was among those who were allowed to visit this morning, painted a rosier picture. He told Arutz-7's Tamar Yonah that a group of distinguished-looking Moslems "accosted us - not physically - and continually provoked us, telling us that this was their property, etc. The mufti himself followed us the whole time and nearly punched one of us - but I have to say that for the first time in living memory, the police were visibly on our side. They [wanted] us to continue. The police were filming the Moslems, and calmed us and told us to proceed and not to worry...
"What was really amazing was that when we were leaving, a large group of Waqf agitators tried to block another Jewish group from coming up by starting to pray right there. The police actually stopped them; one of the policemen said to them, 'I'd like to see the first one of you dare to take out a rug or a prayerbook and start to pray' - and that stopped them. The police really made good on their promise not to allow the Moslems to dictate what's going on up there. We have to give credit where it's due - whether it's to [Public Security Minister] Tzachi HaNegbi or whoever... and just as one of the policemen even said to us: If only more Jews would come up here every day, we wouldn't have these problems. Now's the time for Jews to come to the Temple Mount!"

It was later learned that three Waqf officials who caused a disturbance yesterday and succeeded in impeding Jewish visitors to the Mount were arrested over the night. Two of them, including the head of the morning shift of the Waqf guard, have been ordered to deposit a 5,000-shekel bond, and will not be allowed on the Temple Mount for two months. "That's nothing," complained one Jewish activist, a Belzer Hassid who has been in the forefront of Temple Mount activity for over 30 years and who was witness to this morning's humiliation of religious Jews. "If it had been a religious Jew who had committed even one-thousandth of what they did, he would be sitting in jail for two months!"

Asked about the fact that entry into certain parts of the Temple site makes one liable for 'karet' (the Biblically-mandated Divine punishment of 'cutting off'), the man - an educator in the Sochatchover Yeshiva in Jerusalem - explained that because we know the exact sites that are forbidden, those who follow rabbinic guidelines need not worry that they will step even near the banned areas. He then added mockingly, "Look who's talking about 'cutting off' - a people that already has its head cut off [referring to the Holy Temple]! We are like a body without a head - and it's of course much more comfortable to live just a 'fleshy' [materialistic] existence, without our 'head'..."

He expressed the hope that the on-again, off-again opening of the Temple Mount would not deter Jews from visiting the holy site - after ritual immersion in a mikveh, removing shoes, and knowing the permitted places - and once again becoming "regulars" there.

Isa 8:14-15

14 And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

15 And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.

Jerusalem Holy Site a Tense Crossroads Again

By JAMES BENNET

Rina Castelnuovo for The New York Times
 
 

Jewish visitors at the Dome of the Rock on Thursday.

The holy site has only recently reopened to non-Muslims.

 

 

JERUSALEM, Aug. 28 — Quietly but insistently, the Israeli authorities have pried open to non-Muslims the man-made plateau here that is one of the world's tinderboxes, the symbol and nexus of conflict between Jews and Arabs.

Known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary, the holy site had been closed to non-Muslims since September 2000, when Ariel Sharon, then a candidate for the post of prime minister he now holds, paid a visit there in the company of hundreds of armed policemen.

That visit, and the riots that ensued, provided what Palestinians consider the provocation and Israelis consider the pretext for the Palestinians' uprising, the Aksa Intifada. It is named after the mosque on the 35-acre plaza, which is framed by imposing stone walls built by Herod the Great in the decades before Jesus walked there.

In allowing groups to tour the plaza on most mornings, Israeli officials say they are merely reasserting the old status quo, to maintain calm over a site sacred to three religions. But Muslim authorities say that, by acting while the overall status quo is a shambles between Israelis and Palestinians, the Israeli government is risking a backlash here and throughout the Muslim world.

Today, the stone-paved plaza was a quiet refuge above the maze of Jerusalem's Old City. A cooling breeze swept through the olive trees and cypresses as scores of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim visitors walked the grounds.

But, with their plexiglass shields nearby, dozens of Israeli police officers in blue uniforms studied the scene. For some of the visitors had radically differing religious visions of not only the past but also the future of this compact place.

"Now we're in front of the Holy of Holies," announced Tsvi Rogin, 51, who was guiding a few religious Jews around the plaza, shadowed by a frowning, unarmed guard of the Islamic Waqf, the Islamic religious authority that oversees Muslim holy sites.

Though Mr. Rogin, a rabbi, was gesturing toward the gleaming gold cap of the Dome of the Rock, the sanctuary that dominates the plaza, he was not referring to it. He was referring to the Jewish temple that once stood on this plaza, and particularly to its holiest part, which he believes occupied precisely the same spot as the dome 2,000 years ago and which he believes will stand there once again.

Orthodox Jewish religious authorities differ on the location of the Holy of Holies. But they generally agree that Jews should not visit the Temple Mount, to avoid accidentally stepping on sacred ground. For fear of doing so, two of Mr. Rogin's charges walked only along the edges of the plaza.

In a sermon this week, Ovadia Yosef, a leading rabbi of the Sephardic Jews, lashed out at Jews now ascending the Temple Mount as "wicked." In an interview with an Israeli paper, Jerusalem's mayor, a devoutly religious Jew, compared visiting the Temple Mount to urinating outside a department store.

But Mr. Sharon and other Israeli authorities feared that the Waqf was establishing new rules barring Jews and Christians from the plateau. They argued that that was provocative, because it upset the status quo existing here after Israel seized the plateau and East Jerusalem in the 1967 war.

"Status quo is more powerful than law here, and more important than law," said a senior Israeli security official, who spoke on condition his name not be published. "When you get political issues in a holy place, it's not good for all sides."

The security official said that some Waqf officials wanted to welcome tourists in hopes of reviving business in the Old City, but that Yasir Arafat, the Palestinian leader, had blocked them for political reasons.

Adnan Husseini, the director of the Islamic Waqf, said that Israel had simply imposed its decision. He said that, with Muslims under 40 routinely prevented from reaching the Noble Sanctuary, and Palestinians now held under travel restrictions throughout the West Bank, Israel was seeking not to restore the status quo on the plaza but, rather, to permit Jews to pray here.

 

 

Behind the Temple Mount is the Lord Jesus Christ! The stone of stumbling will cause this conflict to expand far beyond a local argument. The very sovereignty of God will soon center at the Temple Mount. There will be no sharing of the Mount by any two or three peoples. It is God's Mount, and His alone. All peoples must submit to His sovereignty alone. All religions must desist, and the Bible must stand in perfect literal clarity. There is no room for democracy. Man is too low, and God is too high for dialog.

The Bible is abundantly clear that the Lord Jesus Christ is going to literally return! It is not going to be to New York City or Rome. It is going to be to Israel, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. He is coming again as the King of the Jews, and Judaism must submit. The rapture of all the born again Christians is next according to the literal Bible leaving behind the great mass of the present day apostate Church. Islam is on the road to destruction according to Ezekiel 39. It is then that God will begin changing the hearts of the Jews. Many will again experience a circumcised heart as was always a necessary part of Old Testament theology. A born again experience will come to each Jew individually as God prophesied in the Bible. A new Judaism will conflict with the old traditions forcing change on the entire population.

God is preparing the way for the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible says He will literally return to another Holy Jewish Temple  that will be prepared for Him. The events happening on the Temple Mount today are the opening salvos clearing the way for the construction of the Third Holy Jewish Temple to be built on the Temple Mount. The conflict is only beginning. The stumbling stone is about to become the chief corner stone of the soon coming Biblical Temple as described in Ezekiel chapters 40 to 48. There is no room for dialog by either the politicians, or the religious leaders. There is only room to submit, or face the judgment of God Almighty!

 

 

The Circumcised Heart

Deut 10:16-17

16 Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiffnecked.

17 For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward:
KJV

Deut 30:6

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.
KJV

Jer 4:4

4 Circumcise yourselves to the LORD, and take away the foreskins of your heart, ye men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest my fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings.
KJV

Rom 2:28-29

28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:

29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
KJV

Christians march in Bethlehem to protest West Bank fence

By The Associated Press

Dozens of Christians, some of them carrying candles and crosses, marched to the outskirts of the West Bank city of Bethlehem on Saturday to protest Israel's construction of a barrier along its edge with the West Bank and prayed for peace. in Bethlehem, the leaders of 13 churches, nuns and monks and local Palestinian Christians gathered at a monastery to pray for peace and called on Israel to halt construction of a fence that Israel says is meant to keep out suicide bombers.

Israel has already finished construction of a first 145 kilometer (90 mile) stretch that straddles to line between Israel and the northern West Bank. Eventually Israel plans to extend the barrier - made up of a fence fitted with electronic sensors, coiled razor wire and trenches - along the entire West Bank.

Zigzagging deep into the West Bank in places to include some settlements, the barrier's entire length could be over 600 kilometers long. The Palestinians have called it an Israeli attempt to grab West Bank land.

In places, the barrier cuts through communities, separating Palestinian farmers from their land and isolating whole villages.

Around Jerusalem, work has started on the "envelope" to fence off traditionally Arab East Jerusalem from adjacent Palestinian suburbs and the rest of the West Bank.

Among the Church leaders marching to a section of the barrier on Bethlehem's outskirts were the patriarchs of the Armenian, Coptic, Syrian, Ethiopian and Greek Orthodox churches as well as Jerusalem's Anglican and Lutheran Evangelical bishops and Latin Patriarch Michel Sabbah.

"If the wall is built it will be built in the hearts of people and bloodshed will increase," Sabbah said.

 

 

The unity of Apostate Christianity, and the animalistic Islamic terrorists is now becoming clear. These Monks and Nuns believe a false theology called "Replacement Theology" where they replace themselves everywhere where the Bible says "Israel"  when the glorious future prophecies are mentioned. This false theology causes them to believe that Jewish sovereignty over the Holy Land is the reason why there is no peace. It is why they can unite with Arab terrorist ambitions.  It is really "Covalent Theology" as taught by the main-stream Christian denominations. It produces the same jealous hate for the Jews as Islam is now demonstrating. It may be difficult to classify the little Nun eyes full of tears praying for a false theological peace with the blood thirsty terrorist who targets Jewish woman and children, but God sees the same jealous hate against His chosen people in both.

Now is the time to get out of these false theological Churches. You should have gotten out in 1948 when God revealed His hand by allowing the formation of the State of Israel. God did not give the sovereignty of Israel, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount to the gentile Christians, but He gave it to this present generation of Jews! This act proved beyond any doubt that "Covenant Theology" is a great lie!

Get out, all you supporters of this false theology, or it will be too late. The hate against the Jews is only going to grow! Apostate Gentile Christianity is on the road to destruction. The antichrist will use them as cannon fodder during the Great Tribulation in his climb to power. He will in the end turn on them with the same ruthless contempt that he has for the Jews. The teachers of such falsehood will be accountable for the disasters they will bring upon their gullible, but willing followers. The future will center literally with the Jews mot the gentiles. The Lord Jesus Christ is coming again as King of the Jews. He is coming again to Israel, Jerusalem. and the Temple Mount!

 

 

The End of Apostate Christianity

Revelation 17

17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
KJV
