Syria Chooses: Assad to Visit Iran; Israel Continues Talks

by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz

(IsraelNN.com) Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad is to visit Iran this weekend, even as Syrian and Israeli negotiators are slated to continue talks in mid-August. Assad's visit answers the Israeli demand that Syria choose between Iran and peace.

In meetings with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Assad will be discussing bilateral, regional and global  matters. Among the issues on the agenda will be Iran's nuclear aspirations and its confrontation with the West, Syrian talks with Israel, and the situations in Lebanon and Iraq. Official Iranian sources said Ahmadinejad is looking forward to meeting Assad and furthering relations with Syria. He will greet the Syrian dictator in Tehran upon the the latter's arrival on Saturday.

In addition to Ahmadinejad, Assad is scheduled to meet with Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki and other senior officials of the Islamic Republic during the two-day visit. The talks come on the heels of Tehran hosting a gathering of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), at which Ahmadinejad received support for Iran's nuclear program, and ahead of French President Nicolas Sarkozy's September visit to Damascus. The London-based Al-Hayat newspaper reported that Assad and Ahmadinejad will be coordinating the message Assad will convey to Sarkozy on Iran.

Ali Larijani, Speaker of the Iranian Legislative Council, the Majlis, told Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Mualem on Tuesday that Iran and Syria both play important roles in thwarting ongoing threats to the Muslim world. Therefore, he called for expanding bilateral cooperation and coordination in light of current regional and global conditions.

The Syrian Foreign Minister, who was in Tehran for the NAM meeting, concurred and added that such an alliance, expressed in international organizations and conferences, will serve the wider interests of the rest of the Middle East. Laying the groundwork for Assad's visit, Mualem met with Ahmadinejad, Mottaki and Larijani over the past few days.

Syria Chooses Iran
Assad's upcoming visit to Iran may be seen as a direct reply to Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's statement this week that Syria must choose between maintaining its relationship with Iran and peaceful international relations.

Speaking at the National Defense College graduation ceremony in Jerusalem on Tuesday, Olmert said, "The peace negotiations depend on Syria. There is no place solely for overtures, but there must also be action. Syria must decide between Iran, the axis of evil and international isolation, and between peace and prosperity."

However, he confimed, Israel "is continuing with the negotiations in good faith, with the intent of giving Syria a genuine alternative, so that it may make the right decision."

In a statement, Assad said that Israel's ultimatum is "as if Syria asked Israel to break off relations with the United States."

Since May, Israeli and Syrian negotiators have been conducting indirect talks, brokered by Turkey. The latest of four such meetings concluded in Istanbul on Wednesday, with a fifth session scheduled for mid-August. Neither Assad's upcoming visit to Iran, nor the recent mutual Syrian and Iranian declarations of coordination have, as yet, changed those plans. In fact, a sixth round of Israel-Syria indirect talks is slated for September. 

 

 

 

Assad has made it crystal clear that his choice is to lock arms with the Iranians rather then ever make peace with the Jews. The Olmert response from what history will record as the worse Prime Minister in Israeli history to date is "well that's ok, I'll just keep on with the peace talks so they will see just how incompetent I really am. Olmert has only one more month in office before special elections will be held. He is getting the boot! Early retirement for this liberal buffoon who is willing to give away the farm for his own personal efforts to fame. Good riddens to bad rubbish is about the kindest thing that can be said about Olmert.

Assad is crystal clear that he is committing the Syrian people to the same fate of the Iranians as spelled out in Ezekiel 39. In the Biblical account Iran goes under their original designation - Persia.

Ezekiel 38:4-5

4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:

5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:

KJV

Assad this very week has hitched his horse to the fate of the Persians in the coming invasion of Israel revealed in Ezekiel 38 & 39. The entire Syrian Army can be expected to join the Iranians as they pour across the boarders of Israel to murder every Jew they can get their hands upon. The great Islamic massacre will be turned by the God of the Bible. The United States apparently sits on its hands during the invasion. I suspect we will have our own Olmert type liberal in charge. A fellow who will be negotiating for peace while the Islamic barbarians are slaughtering the Jews. It will be the God of the Bible who will save the Jews, not the Evangelical United States with all its mighty power. It will be God who must stand in the gap when the Islamic invasion takes place. Islam is going to find what it means to fall into the hands of the living God of the Bible. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob!

Hebrews 10:31

31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

KJV

The wrath of the living God is about to be poured out on all of Islam. Syria has fixed their fate this very week. Friend, I caution you to take stock of your personal situation. Are you "born again?" Have you been washed in the blood of the Lamb? Mohammed, Allah, the Koran, and all of Islam is about to fall into the hands of the living God. They refuse to submit to His authority. They refuse to turn over the Holy Land ti Him. He is on record in the Bible that He is going to give it to His only begotten Son who will be the next King of Judah, and all of Israel. Death will be meted out to all the rebels who refuse Christ. Friend, it is your turn to chose. Will you chose Christ, and everlasting life of perfect righteous peace. Or, will you chose the world, flesh, and the devil of whom you have served your entire life. Friend, come out from among all the rubbish of this evil generation, and come to the Christ of the Bible before you have to face the wrath of the lamb.

 

Ezekiel 39:17-20

17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord God ; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.

18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.

19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.

20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord God .

KJV

Revelation 6:15-17

15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Fatah Opens Revolving Door for Hamas Terrorists

(IsraelNN.com) Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas will free dozens of Hamas terrorists and supporters who the PA security forces arrested this week. The Hamas members had been taken into custody after Hamas rounded up nearly 200 Fatah terrorists and backers in Gaza last week.

Abbas's planned action was reported by the official PA news agency, which said the order will be executed in the next two days.

 

 

 

Folks, I hope you can see who really runs the Palestinian Arabs of Judah and Samaria. It is not the puppet Government set up by Bush and Olmert, but the hate filled terrorist government of Hamas. The Hamas terrorists are the surrogates of Iran. The Palestinian Arabs of Judah and Samaria have sided with those who are telling the world they will wipe Israel off the map. How foolish the Road Map becomes when reality is consulted. Hamas can take Judah and Samaria from the Palestinian Authority Government of Abbas whenever they wish. Abbas knows this reality, and kowtowed to the Hamas demands almost immediately. He knows Hamas has the hearts of the Palestinian Arabs of Judah and Samaria. He knows his days of power are limited. He knows he only holds the power he has over Judah and Samaria because of the Road Map. It is the American  and the Olmert Governments that put him into power, supply all the arms and money keeping it afloat, and only the Road Map keeps everything going. Hamas refuses to negotiate for just Judah and Samaria. Hamas wants all of the Holy Land. Hamas wants to murder all the Jews of the Holy Land. Hamas wants to wipe Israel off the map. Why oh why is not this foolish Road Map made a priority issue in the present political debates? Why is nothing said about giving Judah and Samaria to Abbas, and his Palestinian Authority Government that can't hold it for a minute from Hamas once they decide to take power.

Friend, Satan has the same power over you as Hamas has over Abbas. He lets you think you have power to stop sinning whenever you wish, but the truth is your addicted. Satan can at any time let sin take full control over your person. The alcoholic knows this truth well. What started out as a take it or leave it beer or two after work suddenly turns into a life which can't resist the call of the drunkard. How sad it is to find out we never had control over our sin, but were really its slave. There is only one way to be freed from this menace, and that is to come to Christ.

 

John 8:34-36

34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.

36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

KJV

Hamas Fires Mortars at Negev as Fatah Terrorists Flee to Israel

by Hana Levi Julian

(IsraelNN.com) Gaza terrorists shelled Jewish communities in the western Negev Saturday night in another violation of the temporary truce brokered by Egypt in June.

The five-week-old tahadiyeh, or "calm," was disrupted after terrorists attacked southern Israel with five mortars. All of the shells exploded in open areas, and no one was injured.

The attacks occurred simultaneously with the evacuation of a number of wounded Fatah terrorists to Israeli hospitals. Dozens of Fatah terrorists were allowed to cross the Nahal Oz and Erez terminals after disarming and going through an interrogation process.

Defense Minister Ehud Barak granted security clearance Saturday night for an additional 150 Fatah loyalists to flee Gaza into Judea and Samaria.

The move came following bloody clashes with Hamas terrorists that left at least nine dead and more than 80 wounded. At least three of the terrorists were admitted with serious injuries to Soroka Medical Center in Be’er Sheva. and six others were taken with lighter wounds to Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon.

Many of the injured terrorists were from the Hilles clan, whose stronghold in Gaza City was attacked by Hamas during the day on Saturday.

Hamas claims that a senior member of the clan, Abu-Ramzi Hilles, masterminded the surfside explosion a week ago that killed five Hamas terrorists and a six-year-old girl.  A Hamas spokesman said senior Fatah bomb expert Zaki el-Shani, who was alleged to have organized the blast together with Hilles, was arrested during the raid on the compound.

Clan leader and former head of the Tanzim terror group in Gaza, Ahmad Hilles, told a reporter from the Associated Press, "You have to decide: Either be trampled under the shoes of Hamas, or stand in dignity." Hilles was reportedly one of those who fled to Israel, but there was no confirmation that he managed to escape.

 

 

 

How kind it is of Olmert to give aid and comfort to the enemy. He put himself in this detestable position because of the Road Map. This Road Map failed again and again proving it just can't work. God showed His contempt for this Russian authored blasphemous plan to give all of Judah and Samaria to the Islamic barbarians by putting it to death several times now. Yet, the world politicians keep resurrecting it, and presenting it to the public as the only plan they will ever permit be used for peace in the Holy Land.

Today, the worst terrorists of the now dead Arafat's Fatah are being given sanctuary in Judah and Samaria. Those who are sworn to murder the Jews of the Holy Land are being patched up by Jewish doctors under orders from the Olmert Government. These fellows are not finishe4d. The Jews are going to suffer at their hands, and all because the Road Map needs Fatah, and the Palestinian Authority Government with which to negotiate. No other Arab group, and especially Hamas will even talk about peace with the Jews. Hamas is dedicated to the complete destruction of every Jew in the Holy Land. It is written plainly in their charter. The United States and Israel both have passed laws saying there will be no negotiating with such uncompromising terrorist groups so dedicated to murder. Today, Fatah willingly slips under the radar. Only the Palestinian Authority are willing to talk about peace even though they are hated by the rank and file Arabs because of their unending corruption. This, even though the PA is lying, and the whole world knows. The PA will never make peace with the Jews, but use the words of peace to get the support it must have to survive from both Israel and the United States. It is the only way they can stay in power. The PA needs to continue to lie to the United States, and Israel in order to stay in power.

Friend, what about you? Do you have to lie in order to maintain a facade of righteousness? Is there something chronically wrong with your heart so that lies are the only way to keep some kind of respectability? It is a terrible position to get into when life is based on lies. When the truth must be suppressed. Governments that can only survive with lies are not long lived, and lives based on lies suffer the same fate. The only righteousness that maters to the Great God of the Bible is that found only in Christ. Friend, without His righteousness it is only sin and eventual death. Only in the truth can real righteousness be found. Friend, the truth is that you must come to Christ for the forgiveness of your sin. You must come to Christ for salvation.

 

John 14:6

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

KJV

Isaiah 35:8

8 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.

KJV

John 8:31-32

31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

KJV

Romans 1:16-19

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

KJV

South African Chief Rabbi: No Apartheid in Israel

by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

(IsraelNN.com) South African Chief Rabbi Warren Goldstein has strongly defended Israel against charges that it practices Apartheid, which was the official policy of the separation of the black majority by the former white government in the country.

Writing in the Times of South Africa, he stated that the only analogy between Israel and South Africa is that both countries were forced into an armed struggle because there was no partner for peace.
 
He wrote that the accusations against Israel of Apartheid "defame the Jewish state and also diminish the victims of the real apartheid — the men, women and children of our beloved South Africa — who suffered for centuries under arrogant, heartless colonialism, and then for decades under the brutal apartheid policies of racial superiority, oppression and separation inflicted by the National Party. If everything is apartheid, then nothing is apartheid."

Former American President Jimmy Carter last year published a controversial book entitled Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid in which he accused Israel of practicing the policy of Apartheid by building the security barrier against suicide bombers.

Rabbi Goldstein wrote that if the number of deaths at the hands of terrorists were proportionately applied to South Africa, there would have been more than 10,000 murdered and 80,000 injured.

He declared that Jews and Arabs in Israel are equal before the law and pointed out, "Israel has none of the apartheid legislative machinery devised to discriminate against and separate people."

The Chief Rabbi emphasized that many Arab citizens hold positions of authority throughout the Jewish state, including that of cabinet minister, Knesset Members and judges.

"All citizens vote on the same voters' roll in regular, multiparty elections, and there are Arab parties and Arab members of other parties in Israel’s parliament," the rabbi told his readers. 

He also denounced the term "occupation," explaining that in 1967 Israel restored Judea, Samaria and Gaza to Jewish sovereignty and that its legal status is unclear. "It is incorrect legally, factually and even morally to speak of an occupation that implies there was once a Palestinian entity in these territories, and that this is now occupied by Israeli forces…. By contrast, Israel is the third Jewish state, the first dating back 3280 years to when Joshua led the Jewish people into the land of Israel."

He concluded, "Our South African experience has taught us that you cannot make peace unless both parties to the conflict wish to resolve it. When the Arab world is ready to make peace, Israel will be there immediately."

 

 

 

The world demands to hear the lies that it wants to believe. The world wants to see all the hate, and disgust that is associated to South African Apartheid applied across the board to the Jews. No mention is made at all toward the politically popular Road Map of which the first provision will be the forceful removal of all the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers from Judah and Samaria. That is worse then Apartheid ever managed to force upon the Black Africans. Yet, the talk is all about the poor deprived Arab barbarians who bring the separations upon themselves by sending suicide bombers into Jewish civilian centers. Folks, the Arab towns party all night dancing in the streets at every successful bombing of a teenaged Pizza Parlor. This kind of hate for the Jews is what the world should vow must be eliminated, not the Jewish attempt to protect their children from the Arab barbarians. Jimmy Carter lost his sensibilities long ago. His anti-Semetic outbursts are numerous. His recent statement about Israeli atomic bombs was a gross violation of his responsibilities as a former President who is expected to keep military secrets. He has now given the Iranians the go ahead justification to produce their own atomic weapons by announcing to the world this up to then secret. There is no reason other then his personal sarcastic hate that caused Carter to be such a fool. His bias attitude of associating South African apartheid to the Holy Land is clearly the problem. A personal assessment by a bitter old man who's legacy is a failed Presidency, but a view the anti-Semitic world loves to hear. A view aimed at subtly stirring the pot among the suicide bombing barbarians so life will be made as miserable as possible for the Jews.

This is a rotten evil generation  in which we live. The truth is twisted into a lie, and lies are twisted into a phony facade of truth. Jimmy Carter exemplifies what is wrong with this generation. The christ of which he speaks is not the Christ of the Bible. The Carter christ hates the Jews exposing their military secrets. The Carter christ loves the Mormons calling them brothers, and dropped out of the Southern Baptist Denomination when some saved Southern Baptists convinced the convention to do the work of evangelism when they meet in Salt Lake City. The Carter christ says his Father of the Bible, and Allah of the Koran are both the same. The phony facade was that this Carter christ put on the respectability of a Sunday School teacher for years, and the Southern Baptists accepted his views. Main stream Christianity put the mark of beloved on Carter, and that sex pervert Clinton. Today, Bush leads the Evangelicals into acceptance of the blasphemous Road Map. His christ is on equal footing with Mohammed because he tells all of us that Allah of the Koran, and the God of the Bible are the same.

Friend, only the Christ of the Bible has the power to save a lost sinner. The false christs of this evil generation are everywhere. The Christ of the Bible is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. He is coming as the King of the Jews. Dispensational change is coming in judgment upon this evil generation with all the false christs. I would warn you to examine the christ you are trusting. The Bible tells us the deception will be great during that last generation of the dispensation. Friend, come to the Biblical Christ, and live.

 

 

Matthew 24:23-26

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

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

25 Behold, I have told you before.

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

KJV

Police Admit Collaboration in Bedouin Ambush of Jewish Hikers

by Hillel Fendel

(IsraelNN.com) A police detective admitted in court last week that police forces hid as Bedouin Arabs attacked Jewish hikers, and then jumped out to arrest the Jews who fought back.

The incident occurred last Tuesday, on the third day of a week-long "Land of Hilltops Trek" from the northern Shomron to southern Judea.  As the 200 youths and adults passed by Maoz Esther (near Maaleh Michmas, between Jericho and northern Jerusalem), they were attacked by Bedouin Arabs with clubs and rocks.

Veteran Yesha (Judea and Samaria) settlement pioneer Daniella Weiss, former Mayor of Kedumim, spoke to IsraelNationalNews from the scene and described what happened:

"Everything was going very well, until we arrived in Maoz Esther.  A bunch of Arabs swooped down upon us with rocks and clubs, and three of our people were injured; they have just been evacuated by ambulance.  At one point, one of our escorts tried to protect one of our boys, and he shot in the air.  Right then, something amazing happened:

 

"From behind a little hill suddenly emerged some cars and policemen wearing civilian clothes, but with police hats - and they arrested the one who shot in the air, as well as some of our other escorts who were carrying weapons!

"Apparently, the police were waiting and watching the whole time, doing nothing until our boy shot in the air."

Police Detective Confirms
Her estimate of what happened was later confirmed by none other than police detective Aharon Yair.  Testifying last Wednesday in a Jerusalem court at a hearing regarding the three arrested Jews, Yair said [as reported by IsraelJustice.com], "The fact is that police forces were there. We understood that like last week, when there was a violent incident when [the hikers] came to[the Bedouin] with weapons, we were ready because we knew that this was a place of confrontation. The [Bedouin] set up cameras and therefore the police were there."

Attorney Naftali Wurtzberger immediately understood the implications, and asked, "If the police were there and watched the confrontation, why did the police not just stand openly and prevent [the hikers] from passing? If it was not permitted, [why did they not just] stop them? The situation, as I see it, looks like an ambush, [...hiding] out like thieves in the night."

Yair responded, "I'm not the one who decides. There are officers above me who decide what is overt and what is concealed."  He later acknowledged that some of the police "were in a hiding place."

MKs Ariel and Eldad
MK Uri Ariel (National Union) told Arutz-7 that he planned to meet with Police Commissioner David Cohen and find out why the police appeared to be collaborating with the Bedouin against Jewish hikers.
 
His party colleague MK Aryeh Eldad said, "I have asked the Public Security Minister [Avi Dichter] for a response, and I expect to receive an answer within a few days. I have no doubt that the police were engaged in a provocation, just as they have been in other places, such as a recent incident in the Southern Mount Hevron area and elsewhere."  He said earlier that this was "another step in the police agreeing to become a 'political police' in the service of the Olmert government."

Police arrested five Jewish hikers following the incident, including three adults.  Three Jews were injured.  Detective Yair said that three Bedouin were briefly arrested; no Bedouin were injured. ....
 

 

 

How much better had the Arabs met the Jewish hikers with cool drinks of water, but Allah demands rocks and clubs. The Road Map also demands the Jews pay a penalty for walking freely through Judah. Olmert is trying to evict over 300,000 Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers from Judah and Samaria. He does not want any more Jews entering what he would have as the forbidden zone to all Jews. Olmert knows for the Road Map to go forward Judah must be off-limits to all Jews.

The God of the Bible has His own plans for Judah. He is going to reveal there the Messiah who will be the Jewish King of Judah, and King of the whole earth. He will rule from the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. The former two which are both located in Judah. Whoever is King ruling from Jerusalem, and who's throne is in Ezekiel's Temple must by location rule Judah! There is no room in Judah for rebellious Arab barbarians. The Road Map has it all wrong. It is the world politicians, and the Olmert government that are on the wrong side of God here in Judah. According to the Bible it is the Arabs who must go, not the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers. It is the stone throwing club wielding Jew haters who will find Judah off-limits to them when the Messiah rules. The day is soon coming when the God of the Bible will show the same mercy to the Arab barbarians interloping in Judah as they showed to these Jewish hikers. What would be considered unrighteous expulsion of Arabs in the Koran is a most righteous judgment in the Bible. The Holy Land belongs to God. He has the right to decide who shall be allowed to live there, and the future of the Holy Land is Jewish. What God started with this miraculous Third Exodus of our generation, He will finish!

The Jews are commanded by God in the Psalms to walk about Zion. They are commanded to hike as did these persecuted Jews in today's article. Watch the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and Mount Zion. The politics are going to change. Judah is going to serve God, and they will rejoice. It is the righteousness of the Bible that will prevail. Friend, are you at peace with this kind of Biblical righteousness. Do you understand why the Islamic Arabs are going to be ejected through judgment from this holy place. It is the God of the Bible who will be the only forever God. Friend, only the righteous will be allowed into the coming Kingdom of Christ. Your righteousness does not measure up. It must be the righteousness of Christ imparted to the lost sinner that makes the heart fit for this coming kingdom. Friend, come to this Christ of the Bible. Let Him wash away your sin. Let Him make you "born again!" Come to Christ, and live in His righteousness.

Matthew 5:20

20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

KJV

 

Psalms 48:10-14

10 According to thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of righteousness.

11 Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of thy judgments.

12 Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof.

13 Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following.

14 For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.

Lebanese Gov't Approves Weapons in Hizbullah Hands

by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz

(IsraelNN.com) Despite a clear UN resolution and a 19-year-old national agreement calling for the disarmament of all non-governmental militias, Lebanon's cabinet voted Monday to allow the Hizbullah terrorist organization to keep its weapons arsenal. The government decision specifically approves Hizbullah activities aimed at Israel. 


Four ministers from Christian-majority parties... expressed "reservations".
Four ministers from Christian-majority parties represented in the government expressed "reservations" over the "resistance against Israel" clause, but Lebanese Information Minister Tareq Mitri said that "the document was approved unanimously."

According to Mitri, the government approved "the right of Lebanon, its people, its army and the resistance to liberate its land in the Shebaa Farms, Kfarshuba Hill and Ghajar," which are located on Israel's northern border with Lebanon. In an apparent contradiction with state recognition and approval accorded "the resistance" - a euphemism for Hizbullah - the statement declared that "the unity and the authority of the state would be the guiding principle of all government decisions and actions."

The Lebanese parliament must now approve the manifesto with a vote of confidence, which will allow the government to officially commence its administration. The new government was formed on July 11, following a violent insurrection in May by Hizbullah and other Shiite militias that forced the majority bloc to accept a Hizbullah veto over government decisions.

Manifesto Contradicts Lebanese, UN Obligations
The terms of the Lebanese government's policy statement allowing Hizbullah to retain its arsenal contradicts United Nations Security Council Resolution 1701. The UN-brokered ceasefire agreement ending the 2006 Second Lebanon War, embodied in Resolution 1701, called for the disarming of all non-governmental entities in Lebanon. More than two years later, that condition has yet to be fulfilled and the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) has stated outright that it would not enforce it.

The closest UNIFIL has come to confronting Hizbullah, as reported by the Lebanon-based Al-Akhbar newspaper, has been to issue "secret orders" to use "all means" to prevent Hizbullah forces from approaching Israeli pilots who may be shot down in Lebanon.

In addition to Resolution 1701, the Lebanese government manifesto violates the terms of the 1989 Taef Agreement, which was meant to be a "national reconciliation accord" ending a Lebanese civil war that had been raging for decades. According to the agreement, the State of Lebanon was to exercise authority "over all Lebanese territories gradually, with the state's own forces."

To that end, the Taef document calls for the "disbanding of all Lebanese and non-Lebanese militias.... The militias' weapons shall be delivered to the State of Lebanon within a period of 6 months, beginning with the approval of the national accord charter."

 

Olmert will be out of power by September, and one of the major reasons is because he still claims victory in the Second Lebanon War. How can this be victory? Hizbullah now controls all of Lebanon as a direct result of the War. The Lebanese Army and the Lebanese Government are subject to Hizbullah demands. This means Iran is unrestricted, and pulling all the strings in Lebanon. The goal of Ahmadinejad to wipe Israel off the map is now permanently camped on the northern boarder of Israel. Yet. Olmert and his liberal friends stick their heads in the sand claiming victory. They deny the reality of the day.

This evil generation also denies the reality of the day. The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again as the King of the Jews to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount, The miraculous Third Exodus of this generation that is a must if the Biblical prophecies of Christ's return are to be fulfilled is almost completely ignored by the masses. They are in denial!

Friend, you can't deny the truth! A diagnosis of cancer can only be denied for so long. The pain soon forces reality to be acknowledged. The living God of the Bible can be seen today if you watch the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. False gods are everywhere, but the God of the Bible can be seen working in Israel. He is alive and well preparing the way for the return of His only begotten Son. The Bible is centered in the Holy Land. Christ is centered in the Holy Land, and in our generation the Jews are once again centered in the Holy Land. Friend this is reality that can't be denied. Have you come to this Christ of the Bible for whom God has once again brought the Jews back to their Promised Land? Do you know Him as your personal Savior? The Jews are prophesied in the Bible as coming to Christ in the last days of Great Tribulation. What about you? Only those who come to Him for the forgiveness of their sin will be saved. Won't you come, and live.

 

Matthew 9:2-8

2 And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.

3 And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth.

4 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?

5 For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?

6 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.

7 And he arose, and departed to his house.

8 But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men.

Terrorists Prance Around Ruins of Atzmonah

by Hillel Fende

(IsraelNN.com) Hamas terrorists have videoed themselves amidst the ruins of the former Jewish town of Atzmona in Gush Katif, Gaza - singing, dancing and play-acting their militaristic plans against Israel.

The set for most of the act is the destroyed synagogue of Atzmona.  It can be seen here in its former glory.  Other former houses in Atzmona appear to be part of a training ground for urban-area fighting.

The video, which also contains long sections of a woman terrorist speaking in Arabic, is being circulated by Jewish sites partly as a warning of what Hamas has in mind for additional areas it hopes to take over from Israel. 

It was reported last year that the ruins of two large synagogues in Nvei Dekalim, the largest Gush Katif town, were being used by terror groups in Gaza as a military base from which to fire rockets at Israeli towns, and as a terrorist training base.

Hamas has also found other uses for the ruins and remnants of the Jewish presence in Gush Katif.  Thousands of blocks and chunks of concrete from the rubble of Ganei Tal have been used to line the walls of underground Hamas bunkers between Gaza and Egypt. In addition, the plumbing system in the Hamas fortress there is reportedly from the former Jewish town of Netzarim.

The underground facility is actually a 50-kilometer network of multi-purpose, well-furnished tunnels designed to function as fortified combat positions against tanks and armored infantry. Senior IDF officers have been quoted as saying that though the Olmert government took no action to stop it when it was being built, "destroying this monster facility or putting it out of action at this point will mean heavy casualties." So reported weaponsurvey.com

 

 

 

This kind of taunting is typical of the Arab barbarians. It is their way of saying to the world our god is greater then your God. This is the barbarian way of saying Allah of the Koran is greater then the God of the Bible. Islam teaches their gullible followers that the Bible is a corrupted book. It is corrupt according to Islam because it teaches that God rejected the Arabs, but chose the Jews. God is clear in the Bible that He has enemies. He had enemies in the past, and He has enemies today. The Islamic Arabs like Hamas are clearly the enemies of God today! God has dealt with His enemies in the past, and the same fate awaits Hamas.

Exodus 23:22-24

22 But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.

23 For mine Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off.

24 Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images.

KJV

The Jews will never bow down to Allah. The taunting is all for naught. Hamas is destine to follow the Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Canaanites, Hivites, and Jebusites unto the dung hill of history. They all defied the God of the Bible in the Holy Land during an Exodus. Their gods proved impotent. They were great and numerous interloping neighbors, but they were cut off from this planet by the God of the Bible. He used the Jews to accomplish the task during the First Exodus, and He may also use the Jews in similar manner here in the Third Exodus. Right now Hamas in Gaza, and Hizbullah in Lebanon have no fear of the Jews, or their God of the Bible. Mark my words all that is going to change. It is just not Hamas and Hizbullah, but the entire Islamic community that is going to experience the same fear as did the former enemies of God. Allah is going to prove to be as impotent as did the gods of the First Exodus enemies.

Friend, I want to tell you truth. All who are not "born again" are the enemies of God. They reject His mercy, and His love that came to mankind through the LORD Jesus Christ. They reject the agony of Calvary spent on their behalf. They reject the grace that brought the greatest gift ever offered. It is more then just rejection. They taunt the Mighty God of the Bible by flaunting their wicked behavior in defiance of His righteousness. Friend, longsuffering has an end, and wrath is the inevitable result should salvation never be applied. Come to Christ for the forgiveness of your sin today for tomorrow might be too late.

Revelation 6:16-17

16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

KJV

17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.

18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:

19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

KJV

James 4:4

4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

Female Land of Israel Activist Freed After 4 Months

by Hillel Fendel

(IsraelNN.com) Rivka Meirchik, arrested during a violent eviction from a Jewish neighborhood in Samaria, was freed on Wednesday after spending four months in jail.

The 29-year-old woman, a resident of Kiryat Ata near Haifa, was arrested during one of the violent evictions of the Shvut Ami startup neighborhood, near Shilo, over four months ago.  Like others before her, she refused to recognize the authority of a Jewish court system in the Land of Israel that itself refuses to recognize Jewish rights to the Land

Meirchik therefore did not post a bond guaranteeing her presence at future court sessions, nor did she cooperate in any way with the legal system. 

The court system responded in kind, refusing to release her from prison, refusing at least once to set a future court date, and occasionally holding her in solitary confinement without visitation and phone rights.

Nearly a month ago, Kfar Saba Magistrates Court Judge Clara Rejenino handed down the verdict: Guilty of trespassing and of attacking - biting - the policeman who arrested her. 

After 3 Months, Judge Takes 1 Month to Write 2-Month Sentence
Inexplicably, says Attorney Aviad Visouly, who represented Meirchik for parts of the legal proceedings, the judge took nearly a full month to write the sentence - "despite knowing that Rivka had already been in prison for three months, and that the sentence was only two months!" 

Visouly told IsraelNationalNews that Meirchik can, if she wants, demand compensation for wrongful imprisonment for the two extra months she sat in prison. He added that had she been found innocent, she would not have been able to demand this.

No Restrictions on Return to Yesha
Public Defender Attorney Aliza Kashkash-Uzeri, who also represented Meirchik, said the judge issued no punishment for the trespassing clause.  In other similar cases, the defendants have been restricted from returning for various periods to areas of Judea and Samaria. 

Visouly said that Meirchik's rights were continually violated, in that she was not brought to court often enough, and because the Supreme Court did not act quickly enough to accept his appeal regarding wrongful imprisonment. 

Meirchik followed the pattern set by previous arrestees in the struggle for the Land of Israel - most notably mother-of-ten Ettie Medad, whose husband Shmuel Medad heads the Honenu Legal Rights Organization. Ettie spent 25 days in prison in 2005.  In addition, teenager Tzviya Sariel spent nearly four months in prison this year, and several ulpana yeshiva high school girls were imprisoned for a month shortly before that.  All were arrested while engaging in pro-Land of Israel activities.

None of the above agreed to recognize the courts' right to try them on charges related to supporting the Land of Israel, and they were ultimately freed from prison after their cases were widely publicized.

Jerusalem-based Human Rights activist Irving Gendelman sharply criticized the Kfar Saba Magistrates Court for its handling of the Meirchik case. He noted that the "Judge sent Rivka Meirchik to jail for another month deeming her refusal to cooperate with the Police 'an idealogical crime.' This represents a most bizarre statement absent of any legal or judicial authority but rather a statement lacking judicial acumen frought with political overtones."

In a letter to the Minister of Justice, Gendelman added, "This cruel and unusual punishment before any indictment may have been brought about because she refused to cooperate with the police. Again, it is apparent that the Kfar Saba Magistrates Court judges are ill-equipped to understand a basic concept embedded in democratic societies:  namely, the right against self incrimination. If there is an allegation of a commission of a crime,  it is for the prosecution to bring all evidence against the alleged offender. The alleged offender does not have to cooperate in the process."

 

 

 

   It must be clear to all that Israeli democratic justice is not like it is here in America. The overwhelming majority of Jews living in Israel are liberal! The Barbra Streisand liberalism is rampant. We here in America have witnessed what happens when the liberals take control of the courts. God is thrown out! Abortion becomes the law of the land. In Israel, the liberals are flexing their power by politicizing everything. The failure of the Israeli Army in the last Lebanon War is directly attributable to Olmert trying to politically prepare the Army so it will not balk at forcibly removing over 300,000 Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers from Judah and Samaria when the time comes. Settlers, and settler supporters like the above protesters who have obviously lost all their rights because of their conservative political position. Today in Israel, the Arabs have more rights to the bleeding heart liberals then a conservative Jew who still believes in God, and desires to obey Him. We often think of Israel as being a God fearing nation, but that is not true. A poll taken a few years ago indicated over 80% of Jews living in Israel do not believe in God. It is about the same percentage of Jews who claim they are what I consider Streisand type liberal. These Jews for the most part live in Tel Aviv. They are apartment dwellers who are mostly interested in creature comforts as being what life is all about. They want peace at any cost as long as it is not theirs. They hate the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers whom they see as the thorn in the side to the Road Map. They are a self-centered bunch who have control, and are building up wrath upon wrath in the eyes of God. It is going to take Great Tribulation to change their hearts, and that is just what the Bible says is going to happen.

Friend, what is God going to have to do to change your heart if you are not saved? The Bible tells us the masses for the most part are never going to change. They hate God, and His restricting righteousness. They will never submit! They want their sin to always have control. The Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers by opening Judah and Samaria with Jewish Settlements are Biblically doing the right thing. It was right for Joshua in the First Exodus, and it is right today in the Third. What is wrong is to threaten them with expulsion!

Oh friend, you must submit to the LORD Jesus Christ of the Bible. There is no other way. He shed His blood at Calvary as the only perfect atonement for sin. He offers you perfect forgiveness if you will only come. He has the power to change your heart, but dear friend you must come. Won't you come to Him this very moment. Won't you surrender your sin filled heart, and give everything to Christ.

 

John 14:6-7

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

7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

KJV

"Seculars Want Temple', as Fast of Av Begins Saturday Night

by Hillel Fendel

(IsraelNN.com) The fast of Tisha B'Av, the "saddest" day in the Jewish calendar, begins on Saturday night as the Sabbath ends, and ends Sunday evening at sundown.  Its name literally means "the ninth day of the Jewish month of Av," the date of some of the gravest tragedies to have befallen the Jewish People.  Most notably, both Holy Temples in Jerusalem were destroyed on Tisha B'Av, but the list of calamities includes also the following:

  • G-d decreed, following the Sin of the Spies as recounted in Numbers 13-14, that the Children of Israel would not be allowed to enter the Land of Israel until the entire generation had died out.
  • The fall of Beitar, the last fortress to hold out during the Bar Kochba revolt in the year 135 C.E., fell to the Romans, marking the last milestone in the beginning of our current Exile.
  • A year later, the Temple area was plowed under.
  • The Jews of Spain were expelled by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella in 1492. 
  • World War I erupted in 1914.
  • The Jews of Gush Katif spent their last legal day in their homes in 2005, and were expelled three days later.

"Secular Jews for the Temple"
The centerpiece of Tisha B'Av mourning is the destruction of the Holy Temple (Beit HaMikdash).  Among the many groups that have sprouted over the past several years promoting awareness of the Beit HaMikdash is one named "Secular Jews for the Temple."  Ahuvyah Tabenkin of left-wing Kibbutz Ein Harod said, "It's true that we don't exactly represent a majority of secular Kibbutz members... but the pioneers have always been a minority: the Zionists were a minority among the Jews, those who came to the Land were a minority among the Zionists, those who worked the land were also a minority, and now we are a minority as well.  But I hope that soon we will be the leaders."

Tabenkin has nationalist, political and historical reasons why the Temple and the Temple Mount are important.  Asked if he has religious considerations as well, Tabenkin told Arutz-7's Ariel Kahane, "Well, the word 'religious' can be the subject of long discussions.  Look, the Gerrer Rebbe once said, 'When the Haskalah [Enlightenment] came to the world, with science, physics, etc., we [the religious] left it for the secular Jews; when Zionism came to the world, we gave that too to the secular; and now we have also left the Repentance Movement for the secular.'  Accordingly, it looks like we [the secular] will also have to build the Beit HaMikdash."

Asked whether he calls for the actual construction of the Temple, he said, "There are many religious authorities, including Maimonides, who say that the Temple must be rebuilt, and so I think it should be done...  As a first step, we must show that we control the Temple Mount... I call upon all of Israel to come to the Mount on [Tisha B'Av] and show that it belongs to the Jewish nation."  

Prominent rabbis permit the ascent to parts of the Temple Mount after certain Halakhic precautions have been taken.

Tisha B'Av Laws
The Sages enacted Yom Kippur-like restrictions on Tisha B'Av, including no eating, drinking, washing, or marital relations. Leather shoes are not worn, and even Torah study - a major source of Jewish joy - is restricted to topics connected with the Destruction of the Temples, Tisha B'Av, and the like.  

Though the afternoon before Tisha B'Av is generally marked by mourning-like practices, this is not true this year, when the eve of Tisha B'av is on the Sabbath. The afternoon Third Meal is larger than usual, as it will be the last meal for over 24 hours, and the usual Sabbath songs are sung.  However, one must not eat after sundown on Sabbath, even though the Sabbath has not yet ended.  

When three stars have appeared, the "short Havdalah" is recited ["Blessed is He Who separates between Sabbath and weekdays"], and Tisha B'Av officially begins; leather shoes are removed and unlaundered weekday clothes are worn.  The evening prayer service is followed by one of the Havdalah blessings, that of "light," and Eichah (Book of Lamentations) is read aloud. 

The other Havdalah blessings are recited on Sunday evening before eating; the blessing on spices is not recited at all this week.  Those who feel they must eat on Tisha B'Av for health reasons should consult an Orthodox rabbi.
 

 

 

 

   Tisha B'Av is a historical day, not a Biblical day. It is a reminder of the omnipotence of the God of the Bible in that He controls the history of mankind. It is beyond coincidence about all the terrible things that have happened to the Jews on the ninth day of the month of Av. So much so beyond coincidence are they that Jewish tradition recognizes the hand of God on this day each year. Jewish tradition has made this day the most venerated right after the most Holy Day of the Biblical Day of Atonement. The Temple always comes to the forefront as the most disastrous of events not once, but twice on this same date! Today, there is much talk of building the Third Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. Jews must consider that they not make the same mistakes of the past that caused the destruction of the Temple twice. God is not going to put up with a continual cycle of Temples, and their destructions because the Jews continually leave righteousness for sin. God is not planning to add continual catastrophes on Tisha B'Av's of the future. The Bible is clear that the next Jewish Temple will be the last Temple to be built. It will be the Temple God brought Ezekiel to see (Ezek. 40 - 48) in a vision of the future. It is the same Temple God brought the Apostle John to see in a vision of the future (Rev. 11: 1 - ff) while John was on the Island of Patmos writing the Book of Revelation. This is the Temple Daniel saw in his future vision of the anti-christ performing the abomination of desolation on it's altar at the midpoint of the 7 year long Great Tribulation.

Daniel 8:11-14

11 Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.

12 And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.

13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?

14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.

KJV

 

Folks, this last Holy Jewish Temple is not going to be built by secular Jews. They do not qualify to do any kind of holy work. The Temple is not going to be built by the so called religious Jews either. They also do not qualify! They have rejected their Messiah, and replaced the God of the Bible with the traditions of the unsaved Jewish Sages down through the ages since Calvary. Who then will be qualified to build Ezekiel's Temple? Saved Jews who come to Christ after the Church Age ends at the rapture. They will be qualified. The Apostle John saw them in his vision of the next Holy Jewish Temple to be built on the Temple Mount. Read Revelation chapter 11 to see the leaders who will build the Temple. Read Revelation chapters 7 and 14 to see the helpers who will have 3 1/2 years to accomplish the task of building, and more importantly establishing Holy Worship in this Temple. Ezekiel's Temple which is the only Temple to have a throne in addition to all the other Temple fixtures. Folks, this throne is for none other then the soon returning LORD Jesus Christ.! After the rapture there will be no saved people anywhere on the planet. A new foundation will be laid very different from what we are used to during this Church Age dispensation. A foundation laid down for the coming Jewish Kingdom of Christ. Folks, the times of the gentiles ends at the end of the Great Tribulation when Armageddon takes place. Gentile rule over the planet ends. The next dispensation is that of the Kingdom. The foundation for this Kingdom is laid down in Revelation 11. The first saved Jews of the next dispensation are revealed there. The building of Ezekiel's Temple with a throne upon which the anti-christ sits in blasphemous usurpation of the coming King is the testimony of these foundational Christian Jews. It will be their responsibility to be properly qualified to build the Temple, and establish Biblical Judaism which will all be centered in Christ. The leaders are murdered by the anti-christ halfway through the Great Tribulation. The rank and file must flee for the remainder of the Great Tribulation into the wilderness where God takes care of them. The sanctuary is trodden under foot for 2,300 days when Daniel tells us it will be cleansed. It will now be at the end of the Great Tribulation. The Jews are apparently able to return to Jerusalem, and accomplish this cleansing in preparation for the second coming of Christ.  Armageddon ends the times of the gentiles, and Christ is able to sit on His now cleansed throne in His now cleansed Temple where blood sacrifice will be given forever in remembrance of Calvary.

Are you ready? Are you "born again?" Have you been washed in the blood of the lamb? Are your sins forgiven? Only the saved are going to enter the Kingdom of Heaven brought down here to earth. You must come to this eternal Christ of the Bible who transcends all dispensations in order to be saved. Friend, come to Christ, and live.

 

Matthew 25:32-34

32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

KJV

Matthew 25:41

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

Russia and Georgia at War: Foreign Ministry Assisting Local Jews

by Hana Levi Julian

(IsraelNN.com) As fierce battles that are rapidly developing into a war heat up between Russia and Georgia, approximately 200 200 Georgian Jews have fled their homes in the Gori area while the two forces lock horns over the separatist region of South Ossetia.

The new refugees, who fled the combat zone at the advice of the Jewish Agency, headed for the comparative safety of the Georgian capital of Tbilisi after Russian jets bombed the city of Gori and oil pipelines in the area.
 
Georgian soldiers had reportedly retreated Sunday morning from South Ossetia following fierce fighting with Russian troops for control of the separatist region. The two forces had been fighting for control of the city of Tskhinvali, capital of the mountainous rebel region, according to Georgian Interior Ministry communications director Shota Utiashvili. “They have been withdrawn completely because of the heavy civilian casualties Georgia has suffered,” he told the Reuters news agency."

Russian military spokesman Vladimir Ivanov told a different tale, however. “Georgia has not withdrawn forces from South Ossetia,” he told the Interfax news agency. Ivanov, an aide to the commander of the Russian forces in South Ossetia, said Georgian soldiers, artillery and armor were still on the battlefield.

The conflicting reports were resolved with a statement by Georgian Reintegration Minister Temur Yakobashvili, who clarified that troops had left the city to “change location.” Yakobashvili said Georgian forces remained in South Ossetia but had withdrawn from the city in order to create a humanitarian corridor in which to evacuate the wounded.

Some 2,000 people have been killed since the battle over South Ossetia broke out between the two countries on Friday.

Tbilisi Military Airfield Bombed
Early Sunday morning Russia bombed the Tbilaviastroi plane factory on the eastern outskirts of the Georgian capital of Tbilisi, dropping three bombs on to the military airfield outside the plant.

The Russian attack was aimed at the factory, which produces Sukhoi Su-25 ground fighters and not the nearby civilian international airport. Runways were damaged, but there were no casualties.

The Kremlin went to the aid of South Ossetia on Friday after US-allied Georgia initiated a bid to seize control of the pro-Russian region.

Israel Considers Ban on Military Sales to Georgia
Meanwhile, Israel is considering a complete halt to its sale of arms and other military equipment to Georgia as a result of the fighting, a move that follows a decision made a year ago to limit such sales to defensive-related items only.

Jerusalem officials expressed concern that Russia would retaliate against Israel by selling more advanced weaponry to Syria and Iran.

In particular, Israel is concerned with Russia’s sale of the S-300 anti-aircraft missile system to Iran. “The day we will want to prevent a future deal with Iran, our hands must be clean,” said a senior political source.

Israeli military equipment brokers have done business with Georgia since the 1990s.

 

 

  

What is God doing in Georgia? Preparing the way for the second coming of Christ! The next Holy Jewish Temple built on the Temple Mount that will be centered totally in the soon coming Jewish Messiah can't be built until Islam is crushed. Islam is now the number one sworn enemy of the God of the Bible. They are sworn unto death that they will never bow down to a Jewish King according to the Koran. They will never allow unto death a Jewish King to rule over all the Holy Land. Islam must be the first to go before Bible prophecy can be fulfilled. The plan of God is to bring peace to the Holy Land through the LORD Jesus Christ. It will not be the phony peace of the nations. The peace of God will be centered totally in Biblical righteousness. Judgment is the method by which God tells us in the Bible the task will be accomplished. The Holy Christ will rule with a rod of iron! Puritanical Biblical righteousness will become the law of the land when Christ rules. Judgment will be swift to any who would rebel against His holy standards. The Bible teaches that Satan will be bound during the 1000 year Kingdom reign of Christ. He will not be allowed to ruin the perfect sinless reign once the Kingdom is established. I tell you true, if Satan will be bound, how much less will men be left free to sin by their own free will. Yes, there will be sin during the millennial reign of Christ, but repentant plea unto the blood for forgiveness will also be readily available as it is today.  The difference during the millennial Kingdom will be that then it will be mandatory to repent, or judgment (death) will be implemented on the spot. Sin is not going to be allowed to ruin the coming Kingdom Age.

The plan of Islam in the Koran is to wipe the Jewish nation to which Christ is coming off the map. Without the Jews in the Holy Land there can be no second coming. Islam lost control of Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount to the Jews in 1967. The very places the Bible says the Jewish Messiah is going to establish His throne. Satan is shaking in his boots for he knows the time is short. Satan is mustering his most controllable cultures to turn back the clock to pre-1967 time when Islam did control. It is not surprising to see the Islamic barbarians come to the forefront since 1967, but what I never expected was to see our Evangelical President adopt the atheistic Russian authored blasphemous Road Map determined to turn back the 1967 clock as his number one priority item during his second term. Both presidential candidates though they differ on almost every issue are united in their determination to keep the Road Map alive during their terms of office! Satanic control is not just over Islam, but reaches into the very heart of Christianity.

It matters not what the world politicians intend. What matters is that the Bible says God is going to crush Islam as part of this miraculous Third Exodus. The last Holy Jewish Temple is going to be built on the Temple Mount. It will be dedicated totally to the Jewish Messiah. The blood sacrifice will be offered as a remembrance of Calvary. Biblical Judaism centered in the atonement for sin will become the law of the land for a thousand years. Islam must step aside for the God of the Bible, or perish. Ezekiel 38 & 39 reveals the end of Islam. A great Islamic invasion is about to take place. A three pronged attack where the Northern prong comes right through Georgia! Friend, that is what is happening in the news today. God is preparing the way for the coming of the LORD Jesus Christ. Are you ready? Have you come to this Christ of the Bible for the forgiveness of your sin? The resurrection proved His atonement for sin was acceptable by the Holy God of the Bible. His victory over sin, and death is proof that only Christ has the power to save. Friend, come to this Christ, and live.

 

1 John 5:4-6

4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.

KJV

1 Corinthians 15:54-57

54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Ascending to a Fortified Matriarch's Tomb

by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz and Yoni Kempinski

(IsraelNN.com) On the national day of mourning on Sunday a large group of Jews ascended to the the tomb of the Biblical matriarch Rachel, located on the outskirts of Bethlehem, and vowed never to abandon the holy place. The gathering was both prayer and protest, as former and current MKs and the National Union party's youth movement took part in the event with calls for a greater and more secure Jewish presence at the tomb.

Members of the youth movements of the National Union party, Ezra, B'nei Akiva and Orot joined for special prayers on the fast of Tisha B'Av at the Tomb of Rachel. It is especially on this fast, explained the organizers, that we should pray that our Mother Rachel need not cry anymore as her children will return to their land - all of the land of Israel.

The event began with a ceremony and speeches at the Gilo Junction, just a few hundred yards from Bethlehem.

Rabbi Chanan Porat, one of the organizers of the event and a former Knesset Member, told the assembled young people, "Bethlehem, the Tomb of the Patriarchs [in Hevron] and my house in Gush Etzion are not occupied, but liberated. Forty one years have passed and the consolation of Rachel our mother, whom we have to thank, is mixed with tears because Rachel, our mother, cannot accept the current situation." Porat was an MK from 1981-1999 representing Techiya and the National Religious Party, eventually breaking from the latter and forming Tekuma, a faction in the National Union party.

Also addressing the gathering was Rabbi Menachem Porush, a former Agudat Yisrael MK. "When I came to Rachel's Tomb, I had the feeling I was in a foreign country. Gentlemen, we must yell and say, 'Rachel is mourning for her sons. She refuses to be consoled and we also cannot be consoled while the tomb of Rachel is outside Jewish control.' " The elderly and wheelchair-bound Porush served as an MK from 1959-1994.

Rabbi Porush's son, current United Torah Judaism MK Rabbi Meir Porush, said at the Gilo Junction, "Rabbi Chaim Shulevitz, the head of the Mir Yeshiva, used to say that his prayer in Rachel's Tomb was, 'Even though the prophet says to stop your tears, I am begging you, mother, don't stop your crying; your sons are still in exile, we are still suffering.' " As former Deputy Housing Minister, the younger Porush was responsible for much construction in various areas of Judea and Samaria.

Following the speeches at the Gilo Junction, the group set out on a march towards the tomb. However, police informed the organizers that they could not approve a march from the IDF checkpoint outside the area of the tomb to the site itself - a distance of 300 meters. The police explained that there were security restrictions in place orbidding the passage of private cars and pedestrians into the site, although the tomb is only 300 meters from the blockade.

Observing the massive security barriers and pillbox positions around Rachel's Tomb, Rabbi Porat called the measures "a large amount of cement poured on the site for no reason. We must," he stated, "bring back free access to the holy site."

Since 1997, Rachel's Tomb has been a target for Palestinian Authority terrorists operating in the Bethlehem region, who know that Jewish worshipers have made great efforts to pray at the site. As a result of the repeated PA attacks which have included sniping, firebombs and rock throwing - visitors can only get to the heavily fortified site in armored vehicles and under heavy IDF protection.

Adiyel Yom-Tov, a National Union youth movement leader, said of the situation at Rachel's Tomb, "Jews should travel to Rachel's Tomb like they travel to the Machpela Cave [in Hevron] and the Western Wall. We made a march today towards the tomb until the policemen stopped us. We came here to say that we will do everything to gain free access to our mother Rachel."

 

 

 

 

   On this terrible day of  mourning  for the Jews (Tisha B'Av)  it is appropriate that Rachel should be remembered. The Bible tells us that through Rachel's mourning great joy will come to the Jews first, and then onto the rest of the world. Matthew reveals the fulfillment of Jeremiah's prophecy about the mourning took place the day King Herod murdered all the babies living in Bethlehem in an attempt to stop the LORD Jesus Christ from fulfilling His role as the coming King of Israel. All those innocent little Jewish babies three years, and younger caused great lamentation among all who lived in Bethlehem that day. Rachel's tomb just outside Bethlehem was there on that day. The Bible says she mourned obviously in heaven, and none could comfort her. She looked upon these little babies as her own children which they were, and she refused to be comforted by angels or Old Testament saints. That is until the voice of the Lord was heard. The Lord referred her to a future return, a third miraculous Exodus, of the Jews to the Promised Land. The Lord told Rachel her work of raising up a prodigy would be rewarded. He told her this time there is Godly hope, a sure hope, in the ending of this future Third Exodus. It will not end in failure as did the first two Exoduses. This time there will be perfect victory, and great joy. The Lord most probably revealed to Rachel the same baby Jesus who fled to Egypt, and was spared the massacre was going to fulfill all prophecy relating to the first coming of the Jewish Messiah. He was going to be the perfect atonement for sin on Calvary. Most Jews of that generation were going to reject Him, and the Second Exodus would end in a Jewish failure. But, God gave her hope that He was not finished with her children the Jews. They were going to come back a third time, and this time the LORD Jesus Christ was going to return not as the Babe of Bethlehem. This time He would be coming in the character of the undefeatable LORD of hosts! The end of this Third Exodus of our generation is going to bring great joy to the Jews in a complete victory through Christ. This is the only message I can imagine that would stop the weeping of Rachel on that terrible day.

Friend, do you know this Christ as your Savior? He is the only man in all of human history that had perfect victory over sin and death. The great joy of the Gospel message is that He freely offers forgiveness of sin to any who will come. It is a gift of grace available to you this very moment. Won't you bow before this great Christ of the Bible, and cast yourself before His mercy. Friend, won't you come to Christ, and live.

 

 

Jeremiah 31:13-17

13 Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both young men and old together: for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow.

14 And I will satiate the soul of the priests with fatness, and my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, saith the Lord .

15 Thus saith the Lord ; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not.

16 Thus saith the Lord ; Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears: for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the Lord ; and they shall come again from the land of the enemy.

17 And there is hope in thine end, saith the Lord , that thy children shall come again to their own border.

KJV

 

 

Matthew 2:16-18

16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men.

17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying,

18 In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

KJV

Olmert Offers Final Status Plan to Abbas, Includes 93% Pullout

by Hana Levi Julian

(IsraelNN.com) Prime Minister Ehud Olmert made what he hopes is an offer that Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas can’t refuse: a final status deal that can be implemented in stages, with a long “shelf life.”

The prime minister is trying to forge a “shelf agreement” with the PA before he steps down from office, having said he will resign after his Kadima party chooses a new leader next month.

 

The deal includes a pullout from 93 percent of Judea and Samaria, additional land in the Negev to make up the difference, free passage between Gaza, Judea and Samaria without security checks and permanent borders.

The free passage would be conditioned on Abbas’s retaking control of Gaza from the Hamas terrorist organization.

The border would follow the current Judea-Samaria separation barrier, as widely expected and predicted.

The remaining 7 percent of the region, which includes the larger blocs of Ma’aleh Adumim, Gush Etzion, greater Jerusalem and northern Samaria, would be annexed by Israel and would no longer be under a construction freeze.

Implementation in 2 Steps
The deal would be carried out in two stages, according to the proposal detailed in the Hebrew daily Haaretz.

The first stage is dependent on Olmert’s ability to sell the plan to the Israeli public and involves the voluntary abandonment of communities outside the proposed border, with legislation to compensate Israelis who relocate on their own.

It is anticipated that many of the voluntary expellees would move to new housing units to be built in the remaining seven percent of Yesha to be left to Israel as soon as the borders are agreed upon and an agreement in principle is signed.

The second stage, which, according to the report, would only take place once the PA completes “a series of internal reforms and [are] capable of carrying out the entire agreement” involves forcibly expelling the remaining Jews from their homes east of the border.

Deferring the Issue of Jerusalem, No ‘Right of Return’
The proposal does not define the status of Jerusalem.  Both Olmert and Abbas agreed to shelve the issue for the time being, recognizing that this was a problem that could not be solved in the near future.

However, Arabs in Judea, Samaria and Gaza have constantly been assured that the PA leadership will not accept any agreement for a state that does not include all of the land that was restored to Israel in the 1967 Six Day War, including eastern Jerusalem.

Under the proposal, the so-called PA Arab “right of return” was rejected outright, and exists only in context of a “return” to PA territory.

This is in contrast to the PA demand that Israel allow some five million foreign Arab descendants of those who fled the state during the 1948 war to immigrate to Israel and reclaim homes or land where their families lived generations ago.
 
The plan also calls for a PA state that would be demilitarized and without an army.  The present security force, trained by top brass from the US Armed Forces, would be retained as a police force.

However, the PA is demanding a security force capable of defending against “outside threats,” according to the report. It is not clear which “outside threats” the PA leadership referred to.


Bush: We Expect Russia to Withdraw from Georgia

(IsraelNN.com) "We expect Russia to meet its commitment to cease all military activities in Georgia, and we expect all Russian forces that have entered Georgia in recent days to withdraw from that country," U.S. President George W. Bush said today in a statement to the press on the White House lawn.

"To begin to repair the damage to its relations with the United States, Europe and other nations, and to begin restoring its place in the world, Russia must keep its word and act to end this crisis," he added.

 

 

 

 

 

   The disgraced Olmert is prepared to give away the farm during his last days in power. The only good thing is that the greedy Jew hating Abbas has turned him down. Abbas does not want to be given 93% for nothing, but he wants it all to be given to him for nothing. It is beyond me why the world press does not come to the obvious conclusion that Abbas, and the Palestinian Arabs will never make peace with the Jews. The Arabs do not believe the Holy Land belongs to the God of the Bible who can distribute it to whom He will, but believe it belongs exclusively to them! The Palestinian Arabs want only to torture the Jews forever, or until there are no Jews left. They will never give up their barbaric ways. Abbas puts impossible terms to his offers of peace. Conditions that he knows the Jews could never accept, but because he mentions the word peace the Bush administration as well as the Olmert administration set him up in Judah and Samaria so the failed Road Map could be resurrected after he was forced out of the Gaza. Abbas as well demand every Jew living in the Holy Land submit to having their eyes gouged out as a condition for peace. An attitude he perpetuates from his former boss Arafat. Remember, the world gave Arafat the Nobel Peace Prize. I only wonder what they will give Abbas for his peace offer to the Jews?

Russia is also talking peace. Peace with what conditions I ask? The condition that all Georgians submit to having their eyes gouged out? The sad truth about all of this is that even if the most extreme conditions were agreed neither the Arabs, or the Russians would keep their words of peace.  Friend, I am thankful I read my Bible, and understand what God is doing in the Holy Land during this evil generation. All the event taking place today are directly related to dispensational change, and the soon return of the LORD Jesus Christ. I am ready! I have repented of my sin, and cast myself on the mercy of Christ. The Bible assures me He is the only single Savior of the world. His resurrection proved He accomplished the perfect atonement for sin at Calvary. He is the victor over sin and death, and He is coming again. I came to Christ for the forgiveness of my sin pleading His precious blood be applied to my sin filled heart. I have found His burden is light. I have found how far short I come in meeting His righteous standards, but I find forgiveness. I find the promise that soon my sanctification will be miraculously brought to the full. Christ changed my heart. He put righteous desire there. I now hate the sin that put Him on the cross. I moan for the day when He will make me perfect. The day His righteousness will cover me forever. Friend, Christ is calling you to be saved. won't you come to Him, and be saved.

   

Matthew 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.

Israel Records Negative Immigration Trend

(IsraelNN.com) Israel recorded a negative immigration-emigration ratio in 2006 for the first time since the late 1990s, according to statistics released Thursday by the Central Bureau of Statistics.

The report said that 22,000 Israelis left the country during 2006 and stayed away for more than one year, a rise of 13 percent over 2005 and about 13,000 more than the number of Israelis who returned home during the same period.

 

 

 

 

   Is this miraculous Third Exodus of our generation at an end? Are all the Jews God intends to use in establishing the next Jewish Kingdom dispensation now in place? These are reality thoughts that should be contemplated. This could just be a lull in the Exodus, or it may be the time God has chosen to wrap things up. During the Second Exodus from Babylon not all the Jews returned. Many stayed behind having settled comfortably into Babylonian society. They had no desire to leave. Some supported their brothers who made the Alliah to Israel, but most were just too comfortable. They had long ago given up on the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. They were satisfied to hang their fate on Babylon, the powerhouse of the time, rather then the fledgling re-establishment of the Jews to the Holy Land. There are no Babylonians around anymore, but the Jews who Exodused to the Promised Land are still here.

Folks, we are quickly approaching the time when there will be no Russia, America, or any other gentile nation. The Bible teaches that for the Kingdom Age to be established the times of the gentile must end! Armageddon ends gentile rule over the planet forever. Old King Nebuchadnezzar, the greatest of the Babylonian Kings,  understood this truth once Daniel interpreted his dream. He was the head of gold, and he knew it was true some future day the Jewish God would send the stone made without hands that would crush the feet of the great gentile colossus destroying the entire edifice forever. A Kingdom would follow. A Jewish Kingdom that would never end.

Friend, the end of the times of the gentiles is the end of this miraculous Third Exodus of our generation. Are you ready? Are you saved? Have you come to this stone cut out of the mountain of humanity without hands? Is this virgin born LORD Jesus Christ your Savior? Has His perfect blood washed away all your sin? Come to Him in complete, and humble repentance. Come with all your heart, soul, and might. Cast yourself upon His mercy. Come to this Christ of the Bible, the God of gods and Lord of kings, and live.

 

Daniel 2:31-47

31 Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.

32 This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,

33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.

34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

36 This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.

37 Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.

38 And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold.

39 And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.

40 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.

41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.

42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.

43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

46 Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet odours unto him.

47 The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.

Gaydamak Favors Opening Temple Mount to World's Muslims

(IsraelNN.com) Billionaire Arcadi Gaydamak said in an interview to Arabic Israeli newspaper Kul el-Arab that he favors opening up the Al Aksa mosque for pilgrims from throughout the Muslim world.

Gaydamak also said he favors talks with Hamas, Hizbullah and Iran "as a matter of course." Fatah-PA boss Mahmoud Abbas, he explained, "does not represent all of the Palestinians."

Omedia, which carried the report, noted that Israel's Hebrew media was curiously silent regarding the interview.

 

 

 

 

  Yes, it is true not all Palestinian Arabs agree with Abbas. The truth is that the majority of Palestinian Arabs agree more with the radical terrorist organization Hamas. The great majority of Palestinian Arabs prefer that the Jews living in the Holy Land be exterminated. It is clearly spelled out in the Hamas charter. The opening of the Al Aksa mosque to the entire Islamic world would receive great fanfare for a time, but in the end it would be neglected as it was when Islamic Jordan controlled the mosque before 1967. Worldwide Islam has no real interest in the Al Aksa mosque beyond denying it to the Jews. It is a backwater shrine that had no standing in the Islamic world until 1967 when the Jews gained control of the Temple Mount. It was only then that Islam put on a campaign to influence the world that this not only was an important Islamic site, but it suddenly surged to the third most holy site next to Mecca and Medina. This is another lie where Islam with no ethical standards just rewrote history for the gullible to believe. Islam habitually redacts truthful history with lies whenever they see Islam will benefit from the redaction. Islam can't exist in the light of truth. It must have the lie in order to survive. The leadership tells the world there was never a Jewish presents on the Temple Mount. Folks, the very foundation stones upon which the interloping Arabs have built the Al Aksa mosque are Herodian. You know him. Herod the Jewish King who murdered all the babies in Bethlehem. Islam does not care what the facts are. They do not take into consideration what is true. They just tell the rank and file a lie, and through intimidation deal with any who might raise a truthful inquiry. In Islam you do not seek truth. You are only to believe whatever is the latest lie proclaimed by the Islamic religious leaders. Truth is any lie that enhances Islam. The Temple Mount becoming the third holiest site in all of Islam even though this lie is not propagated until after 1967. The Islamic people are used to this kind of lying. The sad thing about all of this is that the Islam now actually believes that the Jews never had a presents on the Mount. They believe it was always Islamic, and the Jews are the ones who are lying about their Biblical heritage. Understand clearly that Islam believes the Bible is a lie. They believe Mohammed was given the ever changing Islamic truth when he wrote the Koran. The Koran changed the truth of the Bible into a lie, and all of Islam believes this.

Friend there is only one truth. It can't be twisted, or distorted for then it is no longer truth. The Bible says truth is light while the absence of truth is darkness, Islam can't  stand in the light of the truth. This is what God is doing in the Holy Land during our generation. He is preparing the way for truth to shine in such a way that none can hide from it. The darkness of Islam is about to disappear in the light of the returning LORD Jesus Christ. Already Islam is boiling over as the truth begins to overwhelm the Holy Land. Islam refuses to come to the truth. Islam is going to fight to the death before ever acknowledging the truth. Islam will never leave the darkness it has created. Every time a truth comes to light, Islam must tell another lie to continue to survive in the darkness. The truth is that Jesus Christ is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. He is coming to establish a Biblical Jewish Kingdom that will never end. He is going to rule the earth for one thousand years with perfect righteousness. Friend, have you come to the light? Have you come to the Christ of the Bible for the forgiveness of your sin? Why not face the truth, and come to Christ!

3 O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.

Proverbs 4:18-19

18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.

John 1:7-12

7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

KJV

John 3:20-21

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.

KJV

John 8:12

12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Israel concerned Russia will no longer help on Iran

 Moscow ‘will not be pushed around’
 

According to Israeli diplomatic officials and scholars, Russia’s recent offensive in Georgia and the West’s angry response could make is more difficult to gain Moscow's support in the effort to halt Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons.

Russia’s policy concerning Iran is connected to a number of other matters, said one diplomatic official.

"Russia's position right now is that they are trying to reaffirm their status in their world," said the official. "They have an interest in showing that they are tough in South Ossetia, and that they are also not going to be pushed around by the West when it comes to Iran."

Although it is premature to accurately assess the implications of the Georgian fighting on the Iran situation, eventually Moscow will be keen to prove to the international community that Russia is not a pushover nation on any issue, said the official. Russia may also decide that Iran’s help is needed to keep Russia's southern flank stable, such as in Chechnya where Iran could prove a troublemaker for Moscow if it wanted, added the official.

University of Haifa's Brenda Shaffer, an expert on the Caucus region, noted that when the US marked Kosovo’s independence in February, then-president and current Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said that Russia would then acknowledge the breakaway regions in Georgia. “He meant it,” she said, adding that there is a parallel between Moscow’s policy towards Tehran and its relations with Washington. 

"If they feel the US is cooperative, then they are cooperative on Iran," she said. "And if not, they feel they can hurt the US on Iran."

The night before the Georgian-Russian conflict started, Russia looked to be supportive for placing another round of sanctions against Iran, mainly because Tehran has been defiant to not stop its uranium enrichment program, she said.

According to Shaffer, Russia was poised to support new sanctions against Iran, but if the West now pursues a hard stance on the Georgia matter, then Russia will probably retaliate by refusing to cooperate on Iran, reported The Jerusalem Post.
 

 

 

 You ask what does the Bible have to do with the present conflict in Georgia? well, here it is! The alignment of the Gog with the Islamic barbarian  powerhouses of the Middle East. Iran being a leading member. We are all familiar with the Gog. Most Christians realize the Gog are the Biblical name for the modern Russians. Most Christians at some time read about the invasion of Israel led by the Gog. This is actually a repeated prophecy, and takes place twice in the end times. Once just before the Millennial Kingdom begins, and then again at the end. Ezekiel 38 & 39 is the first, and Revelation 20:7 - 10 the second and last. The lands North of the Caucasus named after the original settlers do not exist anymore. but the land mass upon which they settled remain. Gog is associated with Magog who was one of the Grandsons of Noah. He went North of Mt. Ararat which is the highest peak in the Caucasus Mountains running between the Black and Caspian Seas. He and his prodigy settled what was called the land of Magog along with Gomer, Tubal and Meshech

Genesis 10:1-2

10 Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.

2 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.

 

KJV

These names appear only here in Genesis, and again in Chronicles which is only an affirmation of the Genesis account, but with just one exception. That is in the Ezekiel account of the coming war with the Gog.

Ezekiel 38:2-8

2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

3 And say, Thus saith the Lord God ; Behold I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:

5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:

6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.

7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.

8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.

KJV

First of all let me point out that Togarmah is an exception in that he went South not North. The chronologists who study where these first settlers occupied the earth are pretty much in agreement that Togarmah encompasses modern Turkey. Gomer settled North around both the Black and Caspian Seas. Tubal and Meshech are associated with the twin capitals of modern Russia Moscow and Tubalski. Ezekiel went all the way back to the beginning when he identified the coming invaders of Israel. Ezekiel introduced us to the Gog whom he identifies as the people who settled the land of Magog the grandson of Noah (generally the land mass of modern Russia). When Christ was asked about the end times he made reference to the days of Noah.

Matthew 24:37-39

37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

KJV

Folks, Ezekiel also went back to the days of Noah when revealing the soon coming invaders of Israel in these latter years. Persia is also mentioned which is modern day Iran. I believe these passages are linked by Noah.

Notice also that Ezekiel introduces us to the "Chief Prince" of whom we can never be sure who, or what he is until the prophecy takes place. We can be pretty sure the Gog are the Russians. My thoughts are the chief prince of the Gog is the Islamic break away countries of the old USSR of which Putin is on record of intending to make some kind of an alliance. Russia will back them in an invasion of Israel, but will not commit the Russian military. Russia will supply the money, arms, and the logistics to ensure the chief prince is victorious. What none expect will be the intervention of the God of the Bible. Read Ezekiel 39 to see how this coming invasion of the chief prince of Meshech (Moscow) and Tubal (Tubalski) ends.

 

Ezekiel 39

The End of Islam


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.
6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.


7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken.


9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years:
10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD.

 

11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamon-gog.


12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.


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.


17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.

18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.

20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.


21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.

22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward.

23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.
24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.

25 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;

26 After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.

27 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations;
28 Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which cause them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there.
29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.

'Pardoned' Terrorist Re-Arrested for Shooting at IDF

by Hillel Fendel
 

(IsraelNN.com) An Arab terrorist who was pardoned after promising not to engage in terrorism has been re-arrested for firing at IDF soldiers.

The undercover IDF Duvdevan unit, operating in the Arab-populated town of Shechem (Nablus), arrested Firas Tashtush, 24, for his involvement in shooting attacks against IDF soldiers. Tashtush had been one of nearly 180 terrorists included in a special pardon deal finalized a year ago between Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

The deal granted amnesty to the wanted Fatah terrorists, in exchange for their promise to stop their terrorist activities.  They first underwent a trial period of three months; those who passed this period without engaging in terrorism - most of them - were then officially removed from Israel's "wanted" list

Sold Their Guns, Received New Ones
Many of the terrorists in question were paid by the PA tens of thousands of shekels for turning in their weapons. Those who joined the PA's security forces received new weapons.

Tashtush was arrested ten days ago, but the news was permitted for publication only on Sunday.  A senior Fatah Tanzim terrorist leader, he was arrested for his involvement in several shooting attacks against IDF forces in Judea and Samaria.
 


 

 

 

 How foolish Olmert has been to think he could use character and honor in dealing with the Islamic barbarians. This goes from the Islamic top to the bottom. This is why the Road Map is dead on arrival. Any deals with Abbas are already broken even before the ink is ever placed on the paper. The Islamic barbarians have no honor or character. They are lying barbarians who only live to murder Jews, and Jewish supporters so the Arab in the street can party all night long. Peace with the Jews is an absolute joke in Islamic circles. The Road Map that is attempting to give Judah and Samaria to these Islamic barbarians is the biggest joke of all. I listened to the great Saddleback interviews yesterday. I saw the Laodicean Church in all of its glory. The most important issue in these latter years is the return of the LORD Jesus Christ to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. The greatest stumbling block being cast before Christ;s return is the Road Map that intends to give Judah and Samaria to the greatest Christ haterrs on the planet, and yet not one mention was made about the Road Map during the Evangelical extravaganza. Folks, this age of the Evangelical is neither cold or hot, and God is about to spue this entire era of the Church Age out of His mouth. The rapture is almost here, and the purpose is to remove the true Church from all the apostasy of the Age. It is not victory, but it is removing a Church that lost its testimony. A new start. A new dispensation is all that can be done. This lukewarm Church that embraces everyone of every persuasion and doctrine must be replaced. A Church so intertwined with the world that everybody is a buddy. Lip service to Christ is all that is necessary to fit into the Christianity of this Evangelical era. It should be no wonder that God says He will spue it out of His mouth.

Revelation 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

What is a wonder is that at this high point of this Evangelical Church era while given worldwide exposure to express what it represents within the context of questioning the presidential candidates that the most important issue of this rapture generation is ignored. What should have been asked was what is your responsibility as potentially being President toward the blasphemous Road Map so called peace plan for the Holy Land that will give The Islamic barbarians rule over the very places where the Bible says Christ will come when He returns. Folks, the world politicians are determined to turn back the clock to the pre 1967 era when Islam through the Jordanians controlled all of Judah and Samaria. An era that pre-dates Jewish sovereignty over the entire city of Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. It is Satan trying to undo what the God of the Bible has miraculously accomplished as part of this Third Exodus of our generation which is leading to the return of Christ. This should be of extreme importance to Evangelical Christianity, but it is not! This Evangelical Church does not care what either Obama, or McCain are going to do when it comes to continued support for the failed Road Map. All future Biblical prophecy focuses on Jerusalem, and this lukewarm Evangelical Church wants to keep Jerusalem as a non-issue. All the leading Evangelicals seem to be interested in is: are the Presidential Candidates going to give lip service to Christ as they do rather then look into the most important Biblical issues of this generation. I want to know if the United States is going to keep putting pressure on Israel to unconditionally accept the Road Map no matter how many tomes it fails, and has to be resurrected. Are we going to continue to be the greatest stumbling stone of this generation to the return of the LORD Jesus Christ? I only wonder if Evangelical Christianity knows just how wretched, and miserable, and poor and blind, and naked it really is? I wonder if just like Olmert trusted the Islamic terrorists he freed to keep their word that the Evangelical Church is going to trust the politicians to cross their heart in telling the truth, and keeping their word? Folks, the politicians are never going to bring peace to the Holy Land. They, in fact, are the greatest obstacle to Bible prophecy being fulfilled. We have no business linking Christ to His worst enemies of our day. Folks, I tell you the enemies of Christ are not my buddies! Lip service to Christ is sin!

 

2 Corinthians 6:17-18

17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

KJV

Leviticus 10:10-11

10 And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;

11 And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which the Lord hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses.

KJV

Ezekiel 44:23

23 And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.

Huckabee touts McCain's pro-Israel credentials on visit to Jerusalem


Paying his tenth visit to Israel on Monday, former US presidential candidate Gov. Mike Huckabee insisted that his fellow Republican Sen. John McCain will be a much stronger friend of Israel in the White House than Democratic rival Sen. Barack Obama. "McCain has a much stronger view of how Israel must protect itself," Huckabee told The Jerusalem Post. "There is no naivete on his part about the threat posed by Iran's nuclear program." Huckabee, a former Governor of Arkansas and Baptist Minister, said that McCain would turn out to be the preferred candidate of "traditional" American voters, meaning not just Evangelicals but conservative Catholics and Jews as well. Huckabee's latest visit was sponsored by the Jerusalem Reclamation Project, the US arm of a right-wing Israeli effort to expand the Jewish presence in east Jerusalem. He toured some of the group's housing projects accompanied by New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind.
 

 

 

 

 I remember thinking how great a friend to Israel our Evangelical President George Bush would be. I was hoodwinked! The overwhelming political forces that control the direction political leaders go are greater then any spiritual commitment they make to Christ. I believe in the separation of Church and State! I believe the high calling of Christ is not compatible with the low calling of political leaders especially in these later years. Any politician who would truly put the Bible before his political aspirations would not survive. God is not democratic in His decision making. He is absolutely holy! Let all men be liars, but let God be true. I expect John McCain will be bad for Israel, and not any better then was George Bush. I expect Barack Obama will be even worse. I do know God is greater then the world politicians. They may think they are great men making earth changing decisions, but it is a lie! They are pawns to the Great God of the Bible who has determined this is the generation of the miraculous Third Exodus that is leading to the soon return of the LORD Jesus Christ. This is the same God who determined when the time was right for the First Exodus, and literally destroyed the most powerful nation on the planet at the time in the effort.

Exodus 10:7

7 And Pharaoh's servants said unto him, How long shall this man be a snare unto us? let the men go, that they may serve the Lord their God: knowest thou not yet that Egypt is destroyed?

KJV

Folks, As long as the United States continues to force the Road Map on the Jews our fate parallels that of old Egypt. I have watched the heart of Bush harden at each failure of the Road Map such as when Abbas was kicked out of Gaza giving no Islamic partner with which to negotiate. I watched Bush resurrect the Road Map again and again just like old Pharaoh who also resisted  what God intended for the Jews. The 1967 War that gave Israel all of Judah, and Samaria was a key part of this miraculous Third Exodus. All Jerusalem, and especially the Temple Mount came under Jewish sovereignty for the first time in almost 2000 years. The secular Jewish government balked at that moment, and instead of following the Bible and 2000 years of praying for Jerusalem They gave the keys to the Temple Mount back to Islam. They clearly turned on God, and have suffered ever since. Next came our Evangelical George Bush who surrendered to the political pressures, and adopted the atheistic Russian authored Road Map which is clearly an attempt to turn back the clock. The Road Map is designed to recreate the Islamic control over all of Judah and Samaria as it was before 1967. I fully expect both McCain and Obama, whoever may become President, will continue to spit in the face of God. They will continue the Russian effort to turn back the clock that Almighty God has already advanced. Folks, the Road Map is not going to succeed even if God must destroy America to stop it! Jesus Christ is coming again as the King of the Jews/ He is coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. I only pray you are ready. I pray you do not join with those who would put the Road Map out there in an attempt to stop God from bringing Biblical prophecy into fulfillment.
 

Exodus 9:35

35 And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, neither would he let the children of Israel go; as the Lord had spoken by Moses.

Exodus 10:3 -12

3 And Moses and Aaron came in unto Pharaoh, and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, How long wilt thou refuse to humble thyself before me? let my people go, that they may serve me.

4 Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, to morrow will I bring the locusts into thy coast:

5 And they shall cover the face of the earth, that one cannot be able to see the earth: and they shall eat the residue of that which is escaped, which remaineth unto you from the hail, and shall eat every tree which groweth for you out of the field:

6 And they shall fill thy houses, and the houses of all thy servants, and the houses of all the Egyptians; which neither thy fathers, nor thy fathers' fathers have seen, since the day that they were upon the earth unto this day. And he turned himself, and went out from Pharaoh.

7 And Pharaoh's servants said unto him, How long shall this man be a snare unto us? let the men go, that they may serve the Lord their God: knowest thou not yet that Egypt is destroyed?

8 And Moses and Aaron were brought again unto Pharaoh: and he said unto them, Go, serve the Lord your God: but who are they that shall go?

9 And Moses said, We will go with our young and with our old, with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our herds will we go; for we must hold a feast unto the Lord .

10 And he said unto them, Let the Lord be so with you, as I will let you go, and your little ones: look to it; for evil is before you.

11 Not so: go now ye that are men, and serve the Lord ; for that ye did desire. And they were driven out from Pharaoh's presence.

12 And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up upon the land of Egypt, and eat every herb of the land, even all that the hail hath left.

Rice: Russia May Be Attempting to Rebuild Soviet Union

by Hana Levi Julian

 

(IsraelNN.com) Russia appears to be attempting to re-establish another Soviet Union, according to US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and America intends to nip the effort in the bud.

In remarks to journalists during her flight to Brussels for a meeting of the NATO Council, Rice noted Russia’s reluctance to fulfill its end of a ceasefire agreement negotiated by French President Nicolas Sarkozy a week ago.

Russian forces remained in Georgia Tuesday morning, despite another promise by Russian President Dimitry Medvedev to fulfill his end of the ceasefire agreement negotiated last week by French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

According to a Reuters reporter stationed near the Georgia-Russia border, no Russian tanks or armored personnel carriers (APCs) left the country they invaded 12 days ago through the only military crossing point back into Russia overnight.

The ceasefire agreement allows the Kremlin to leave a token “peacekeeping” force in the Georgian breakaway regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, both of which are populated primarily by ethnic Russians and which have been fighting Georgian control.

A letter by Sarkozy written to Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili clarifying the terms of the ceasefire agreement signed by Russian President Dimitry Medvedev did not change matters, which Rice said would be discussed at the NATO meeting.

“I think the French will undoubtedly be seeking from the Russians an explanation for why the Russian President either won’t or can’t keep his word. That letter is absolutely clear about what the terms of this are. The French, as I understand it, shared the contents of this letter with Russia, and so this is a question of why the Russian president isn’t keeping his word,” she said.

The American Secretary of State reaffirmed the US commitment to its ally, vowing that “Georgian infrastructure will be rebuilt. Georgia’s economy will be reinforced.”

Rice also noted that a wider risk is developing, one she said NATO is moving to block, by “[backing] up states that might be at risk of being reabsorbed into the Russian constellation.

“We have an objective in the alliance to reaffirm the support of the alliance for those states that are now well outside of Russia’s reach; that is, those that have been fully integrated into the transatlantic structures, states like - the Baltic states like Poland, which are fully integrated members of the transatlantic community. And that just shows how far we’ve come since 1991 and the collapse of the Soviet Union, and certainly how far we’ve come since 1968 when one of the countries that will be sitting around that table was brutally attacked and its government overthrown by Soviet forces.”

Rice noted that NATO would have to choose between a re-established Soviet presence in the region, or allowing states like Georgia and the Ukraine, neither of which is a member, to join its ranks. She made it clear, however that the timetable for making that decision, due in December, would not be moved up.

“We are also going to send a message that we’re not going to allow Russia to draw a new line at those states that are not yet integrated into the transatlantic structures like Georgia and Ukraine. And so the alliance will need to consider what it wishes to do to clearly indicate that we’re not accepting a new line,” she said.

The bottom line, she said pointedly, remains at the Kremlin.

“This alliance has kept open a road for a strategic choice of Russia as friend, not adversary…But frankly, Russia can’t have it both ways. It can’t act in a way that it did during the Cold War when it was the Soviet Union and expect it to be treated – expect to be treated as a responsible partner as President Medvedev outlined in the speech that he made just a few weeks ago.”

Rice added that although Russia had continued its cooperation with the US on strategic projects regarding nuclear issues in Iran and North Korea, it was “not because Russia is doing favors to the United States, but because they are in Russia’s interests.

“Russia doesn’t benefit from a nuclear Iran,” she maintained. “Matter of fact, since Iran is a lot closer to Russia than it is to the United States, it certainly doesn’t benefit. And it certainly doesn’t benefit from a Middle East that would be roiled by the prospect of a nuclear Iran. Similarly, I don’t think Russia benefits from instability on the Korean peninsula, or further North Korean proliferation, nor does Russia benefit from the continued difficulty in the Levant, Israel, Palestine and so forth.”

A nuclear facility allegedly built with the assistance of North Korea was destroyed in a remote northeastern location in Syria on September 6, 2007, in an attack widely ascribed by foreign media to Israeli operatives. The Israeli government has remained silent on the issue. 

Both Israel and the US, however, are vocal about the threat of a nuclear Iran, which they maintain is rapidly becoming a realistic threat, giving the progress in the Islamic Republic's continuing uranium enrichment activities, despite numerous sanctions imposed by the United Nations Security Council. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has repeatedly vowed to wipe Israel off the map.


 

 

 

Russia has two major Biblical functions in these later days. She is the major backer of the coming Islamic invasion of Israel (Ezekiel 38 & 39). An endeavor that ends with the complete destruction of the invading force, and one of the major reasons why the Russians only sponsor the invasion. They do not participate because they still have another major Biblical function, and that is being the mighty King of the North in the last days leading to Armageddon (Daniel 11:44). This King of the North has his own invasion of Israel driving out the antichrist who is the King of the West (Zechariah 14) . If Russia suffered the defeat of Ezekiel 39 which takes place at the beginning of the Great Tribulation they would never be able to muster the power needed to participate in the final gentile battle of Armageddon at the end of the Great Tribulation. 

 Folks, it is going to be the Russians who will be surrounding Jerusalem on the coming day of which Zechariah speaks in his 14th chapter. The gentile nations will be gathered for that one great final battle to determine world domination. Here the Russians are the major player defying God, and the return of Christ. It is primarily the Russians against whom Christ comes in judgment to fight as He fought  in the day of battle. The great highly prophesied battle of Armageddon. The Biblical event that ends the times of the gentiles. Understand that the invasion of Ezekiel 38 & 39 is different from the invasion in the last days before Armageddon. The Ezekiel invasion is an an all Islamic invasion that opens the door for the Last Holy Jewish Temple to be built on the Temple Mount which takes place at the beginning of the Great Tribulation. The following invasion is when the Kings of the East, North, South, and West gather for the final battle of battles around Megiddo. The Russians come from the North heading right to the city of Jerusalem as their rallying point. The antichrist who is the King of the West flees Jerusalem in order to rallying his forces around Megiddo. This leaves a small sliver of time for the faithful Jewish Christians who fled into the wilderness when the antichrist usurped the throne of Christ 3 1/2 years earlier to return to Jerusalem, and cleanse the Temple they started to build 7 years earlier. They must face the ever increasing flow of the Russian Army as we see happening this very day in Georgia. Zechariah tells us half the city of Jerusalem will already have fallen to the Russians (King of the North) when Christ comes in the character of the LORD of hosts. He ends the reign of the gentiles over the planet, and establishes His own reign as King of the Jews.

Dear friend, I pray you are prepared for what God is doing this very day in the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount.

 

Zechariah 14:1-3

14 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.

2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

3 Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

KJV

Jordan Releases 4 Terrorists Convicted of Murdering Israelis

by Ze'ev Ben-Yechiel

 

(IsraelNN.com) The Kingdom of Jordan has released four terrorists convicted of murdering two IDF soldiers, including an officer, according to a Wednesday report from a Jordanian news agency.

The four Jordanian nationals were captured and sentenced to life in Israeli prisons for their 1990 murder of an IDF soldier and an officer, but were handed over to Jordan as a “gesture” of goodwill to King Abdullah II.

In the report by the Petra agency, the Jordanian king released the four as the result of mounting pressure from his constituents, in the wake of the recent prisoner swap in which Israel released terrorist murderers to Hizbullah, and most recently after this week’s news that Israel was prepared to release 200 Palestinian Authority terrorists as yet another “gesture” to PA President Mahmoud Abbas.

As part of the 2007 prisoner return deal with Jordan, Israel agreed to hand over the four murderers on the condition that they would not be released until they served at least 18 months in Jordan’s prisons. This means they were supposed to have remained in prison until December 2009, despite the fact that their original sentences mandated life behind bars.
 
Despite the fact that the deal included a clause that allowed Jordan to release the prisoners if Israel unilaterally released PA prisoners in a “goodwill gesture,” Israel has yet to free the 200 PA prisoners it is considering releasing. 

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert commented on the decision in 2007 to release the four terrorists in a statement he issued, saying: "We received a personal request in the matter from the king, who is one of my friends... This move was considered very carefully. We are not releasing (these) prisoners; we are remanding them to a Jordanian prison for the rest of their sentence."

In related news, Jordan has resumed official ties with Hamas. This follows a period of tensions surrounding political disputes. Jordanian newspapers report of “positive meetings” between the terrorist group and the kingdom, and Hamas released a statement Friday proclaiming the restoration of its ties with Jordan. The announcements followed a series of meetings held over the past weeks between a Hamas delegation and representatives of the Jordanian government, including Jordan’s Intelligence Director Mohammed Zahabi. Among the items on the agenda were restrictions on the terror group’s activity in Jordan, suggesting that the kingdom that signed a peace treaty with Israel in 1994 plans to become the latest haven for Israel’s sworn enemies.
 


 

 

 

All these goodwill gestures on the part of Olmert have come back to bite him. I'm sure the nations around the world will all begin following his goodwill policy with their incarcerated terrorists as has Jordan. The worst of the worst like the cold blooded murderers of the Munich Olympic Games can now expect goodwill. Jordan is leading the way to goodwill toward any prisoner who is in prison for killing Jews. It is almost like saying it is a good thing to be a terrorist murdering Jews, and if you do - you can expect the goodwill from whoever arrests you. Even the Jews themselves consider you worthy of goodwill for committing these most heinous crimes. Olmert has opened the door to the world by being so good-willed. He has taken the teachings of Jesus about turning the other cheek, and so misapplied them that worldwide disaster has come upon the Jewish people. There are no deterrents for murderers anymore so long as the murdered are Jewish. I only hope the next good-willed group of prisoners are not those who have murdered Bohemians, and I'm sure Hispanic folk do not want Olmert extending his goodwill to those who have murdered Mexicans. I don't think any of us want this kind of goodwill extended to our ethnic origins. 

Understand what it is that is driving Olmert to be so good-willed oriented. It is the Road Map! He must show goodwill to the Islamic Palestinian Arabs so they will take all of Judah and Samaria when offered. I might mention that Jordan from whom Israel defeated becoming the owners of Judah and Samaria has flat-out refused to take them back. Jordan wants no part of the Palestinian Arabs. They already have too many of them locked up in concentration camps along the boarder with Israel. They already had to send the Army in to massacre many of the Palestinian Arabs when they rioted trying to overthrow the Jordanian Kingdom and King. Jordan washed it's hands of Judah and Samaria. Arafat was willing to take Judah and Samaria. He first was given the Gaza, and the city of Jericho with the promise through the Road Map that Judah and Samaria would soon follow. However, Arafat died! Abbas took his place as leader of the Palestinian Authority, and he said he was willing to take Judah and Samaria. He got kicked out of Gaza when the Palestinian Arabs voted for Hamas over the PA, and there was no Islamic negotiating partner for the Road Map anymore. Hamas said they would not accept Judah and Samaria from the Jews. Hamas said they intend to take all of the Holy Land by exterminating all the Jews. They would never humiliate Allah by taking a free gift from a Jew. Bush and Olmert quickly established the banished Abbas in Judah and Samaria making him the defecto King of Judah in order to have a negotiating partner so the Road Map could be resurrected. Today, Olmert is in the process of releasing another 200 arrested terrorists to show his goodwill to Abbas in fear he may not accept Judah and Samaria when offered.

Friend, you may be thinking: how stupid! Trying to give away the main part of the Holy Land for nothing more then goodwill lo terrorists out to kill you, and it is truly misguided stupidity. It is beyond the abilities of sin filled men to find the way to peace! This stupidity is what the Road Map produces in minds of the world politicians. This Road Map is the best fallen mankind can come up with to produce peace in the Holy Land. It is nuts! It goes beyond stupidity.

Now I'll quote you something that sounds even more stupid, but this is Godly coming from the only source of perfect love:

John 3:16-21

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

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

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.

KJV

Haniyeh vows ‘Jerusalem will be returned by jihad’


Also demandsJordan Valley, 'right of return' to Israel

Speaking on the 39th anniversary of an arson attack on the al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem’s Old City, Hamas leader in Gaza Ismail Haniyeh declared on Wednesday that his group will not sign onto any peace deal that does not call for Jerusalem and the Jordan Valley to be returned to the Palestinians, as well as ensuring the right of return for Palestinian refugees to go back to Israel.

“No one can cede Jerusalem, the city from which the Prophet Muhammad ascended to the heavens… Jerusalem will be retrieved to the Palestinians not through negotiations or by hugging and kissing the enemy, but by way of jihad, blood, shahids, and resistance. With Allah’s help, Jerusalem will be returned,” said Haniyeh.

He added that “the Israeli Arabs are safeguarding the al-Aqsa Mosque; it is as if they are inside the belly of a whale. They represent the Islamic nation. We send them out regards, especially to Sheikh Raed Salah (founder of the Islamic Movement in Israel).”

Haniyeh said that “according to most all reports on secret peace talks or agreements, Israel is refusing to relinquish Jerusalem and the West Bank, refuses to accept the right of return of Palestinian refugees, refuses to dismantle the settlements and deems the Jordan Valley vital to its security…. On behalf of the Palestinian nation and Muslims everywhere, I say that we will not accept any such agreements.”

The Hamas leader also charged that Israel intends to destroy Al-Aqsa and appealed to all Muslims to “protect Jerusalem,” reported Ynetnews.

 


 

 

I don't know when the Jews are going to destroy the Al -Aqsa mosque, but I know they will. The entire Temple Mount must be thoroughly cleansed of almost 2000 years of pollution. Ezekiel's Holy Jewish Temple must be constructed on the Temple Mount before the mid-point of the Great Tribulation. The Bible is clear that Ezekiel's Temple is in full acceptable holy operation at the mid-point of the Great Tribulation, and it is then that the antichrist takes control declaring himself christ incarnate.

Daniel 9:27

27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

KJV

Daniel's week is seven years. He is referring here to the last week of his prophecy leading to the end of the times of the gentiles. This last week is identified as the Great Tribulation. 3 1/2 years of relatively calm tribulation while the antichrist establishes his kingdom, and then 3 1/2 years of extreme tribulation called Jacob's trouble where the antichrist declares himself god destroying all who resist his rule. Armageddon is the last thing that happens in the Great Tribulation. The gentile Kings of the East, North, and South gather together to challenge the antichrist who is the King of the West. It is Jerusalem which will sit right in the middle of the gathering forces.  Ismail Hamiyeh may make claim to Jerusalem in the name of the Koran and Allah, but the Bible and the God of the Bible has always had a prior claim. It is the God of the Bible who brought about this miraculous Third Exodus of our generation. Islam can cry and moan as much as they want, but nothing can change what God is doing today in the Holy Land. God intends to replace gentile rule with Jewish rule. A Jewish Kingdom with a perfect Jewish King ruling from the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. A King who is going to rule with perfect righteousness. He is going to have the power to outlaw sin across the entire planet.

Friend, do you know this Christ as your own personal Savior? I would implore you to kiss the Son least He be angry with you. Only those who trust Him, and are born again will be blessed. The rest will only abide in His wrath forever. Dear friend, come to Christ before it is too late.

Psalms 2:9-12

9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

11 Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

KJV

Hareidi Leaders Urge Temple Mount Ban for Jews

(IsraelNN.com) The leaders of Israel's hareidi-religious community have called for Israel to ban Jews from visiting the Temple Mount, Judaism's holiest spot.

Rabbis Shalom Elyashiv, Chaim Kanievsky and Ovadia Yosef recently asked Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovich, rabbi of the Western Wall complex, to reinstitute the traditional religious ruling forbidding Jews from entering the holy site. The call follows a publicized visit in July by Rabbi Moshe Tendler, a leading U.S. authority, to the plaza atop the Mount.

Chief IDF Rabbi Shlomo Goren urged Jews not to walk on the Temple Mount following Israel's stunning victory in the 1967 Six-Day War, but national-religious rabbis such as Kiryat Shmona chief rabbi Zephania Drori and Kiryat Arba chief rabbi Dov Lior have moved in recent years to overturn the ban, fearing a lack of Jewish presence could lead secular authorities to turn the site over to Moslem control.
 


 

 

 

Talk about being your own worst enemy. The hyper-religious Jews of today are the enemies of God! Much like the Pharisees and Sadducees of Christ's day thay are in need of great chastisment.

Matthew 3:7-8

7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:

KJV

A generation of vipers are in control of Judaism today as was the case when Christ came the first time. These religious hypocrites have thwarted the Jews from following the truth of the Bible, and twisted Judaism into a man centered rather then God centered religion. The Jews were ready to flood onto the Temple mount in 1967. They would have bulldozed all those filthy Islamic shrines from off that Holy Hill if it was not for these ignorant religious rabbis who fearing their power over the non-Temple Judaism would be lost should the Jews institute Biblical Judaism once again. These tradition based Jewish leaders have led Judaism for the last 2000 years while the Biblical  Temple was denied the masses. Suddenly in 1967 most unexpectedly the Arabs attacked, and in just Six Days the Jews found themselves the sovereigns of all of Judah and Samaria. The entire city of Jerusalem was now Jewish with the withdrawal of the Jordanian Army to the East side of the Jordan River. Most important was that the Jews now had full sovereignty over the Temple Mount including the Wailing Wall. For the very first time in 2000 years the Jews could return to Biblical Judaism as laid out in the Book of Leviticus. God had preformed the greatest miracle of this Third Exodus, but the faithless politicians teamed up with the faithless religious leaders to stop what God was so clearly doing. Fear that God was not big enough to overcome Islam, and thinking all of Islam would retaliate. The Jewish leaders forbad any Jew to enter onto the Temple Mount on penalty of anathema. What they did was chose the Wall that separates the Jews from their Biblical God making it the object of veneration rather then the Temple Mount itself. Today you can go to the Wailing Wall, and watch the Jews pound their heads against it in total frustration trying to reach the God on the other side. The Temple side, the Biblical side of the Wall. There is nothing in the Bible about the Wall, but entire books are written about the Temple Mount. The Wall is nothing more then tradition prattle invented by the rabbis, yet this is what the leadership chose in 1967 at the expense of the Temple Mount. Today's religious Jews love the Wall more then the God of the Temple. Islam was quick to turn this backwater Islamic shrine into the third most holy site in all of Islam. This sudden elevation is only since 1967. Islam wants to turn the clock of God back to the time when they had full control of the Holy Hill. They demonstrate to the world that they will die for the Mount while the Jews dare not put foot on it. The world obviously sees the Mount appears more important to Islam then the Jews. This influences international attitudes toward who should have the Mount in the long term of things. It is the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees that has brought about this most unbiblical situation that is a slap in the face to the Great God of the Bible.

Folks, this leaven must be purged from Judaism forever. All false doctrine built upon the traditions of men must be purged from all religions. The Bible must stand on it's own without contamination. The Koran is a filthy blasphemous book which must eventually be purged from atop the Temple Mount. The God of the Bible will never compromise with impurity. The Bible is not a religious Book. It is God's Word to mankind. It must stand alone apart from the contamination of religion. The Bible is not about religion, but about a man. The man/God the LORD Jesus Christ who is the single Savior of the World. The Bible reveals the perfect atonement Christ provided for sin at Calvary. It is not religion. It is fact! Only Christ has the power to save. Religion is impotent. Friend, you must come to Christ, not religion if you want to be saved according to the Bible. The importance of the coming Holy Jewish Temple is that Levitical sacrifice will again be honored by God as it was 2000 years ago. In the past the sacrifices at the Temple looked forward to Calvary. In the future the Temple sacrifices will look back in remembrance of Calvary. Friend, the forgiveness of your sin was accomplished at Calvary. All human history hinges on that single event which will be venerated forever. Won't you come to Christ, and allow Him to wash away your sin with His precious blood. This is the only way to be born again. Friend, come to this Christ of the Bible, and live.

Matthew 16:6

6 Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

KJV

Matthew 16:12

12 Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

KJV

Luke 12:1

12 In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.

KJV

1 Corinthians 5:7-8

7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

Jews in the Temple Area: A "Mount"-ing Controversy

by Ze'ev Ben-Yechiel
 

(IsraelNN.com)  “There’s a big problem. The Arabs are desecrating [the Mount]. So for the Arabs it’s allowed and Jews not? If they rule that Jews are not allowed on the mount, then Arabs should certainly not be allowed on it either. Several of Israel’s leading rabbis have fired the latest shot in one of modern Israel’s longest-running halachic disputes—whether a Jew may enter the Temple Mount nowadays. Rabbis Ovadia Yosef, Shalom Elyashiv and Chaim Kanievsky recently sent a letter to Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovich, the rabbi in charge of the Western Wall area, asking him to repeat a 40-year-old decree prohibiting Jews from entering the Temple Mount.

The decree was originally signed by most leading rabbis upon the Mount’s capture by Israel in the 1967 Six Day War.

The Temple Mount is the area upon which both Holy Temples stood, in which the priests offered sacrifices, and where thrice-yearly convocations of the whole nation of Israel took place during the festivals of Pesach (Passover), Shavuot (Weeks) and Sukkot (Tabernacles).

In the center of the Temple complex stood a Holy of Holies that guarded the Holy Ark—once containing the original Tablets of the Law given to Moses by G-d at Mt. Sinai—and the Foundation Stone for the creation of the universe.  That spot is the holiest point in the world and the place that the High Priest entered only once a year to offer the most important atonement sacrifice of the year.

The modern debate centers on whether or not there is enough information from classical rabbinical sources to identify the location of the Holy of Holies, as well as the layout of the Temple, which articulated specific areas accessible to different categories of Jews. The biblical prohibition against a person entering an area in the Temple complex forbidden to him carries with it the severe Divine penalty of karet.

Rabbi Yosef is regarded as Israel’s foremost Sephardic authority on Torah law, Rabbi Elyashiv is considered to be the leader of the hareidi-religious community, and Rabbi Kanievsky is a world-renowned rabbi and authority on Torah law.

A Change in the Tide as Dissenting Ascenders Grow
The letter sent by the rabbis follows a firestorm of controversy that erupted last month when a prominent rabbi, Rabbi Moshe Tendler, was photographed ascending the Mount. Rabbi Tendler is the son-in-law of the late Rabbi Moshe Feinstein, considered the leading halachic (Torah law) authority in America in his time. Rabbi Tendler climbed to the plaza in the center of the Mount, upon which the Muslims built the Dome of the Rock, considered by many to be the location of the Inner Temple itself.

In recent years several other prominent rabbis have ascended the Mount, keeping the flames of the dispute burning.

In the latest letter, the three rabbis demand a complete ban on Jews entering any part of the Temple Mount on the grounds that the ritual purity of the area might be violated.

"A time passed, we have lost knowledge of the precise location of the Temple, and anyone entering the Temple Mount is liable to unwittingly enter the area of the Temple and the Holy of Holies,” the three wrote in the letter.
"Entrance to the Temple Mount, and the defilement of the Holy of Holies, is more severe than any of the violations in the Torah," wrote Rabbi Kanievsky.

Signs were first placed around the area in 1967 warning Jews that they would be incurring a divine decree of death if they ascended the Mount. The signs enjoyed the support of most rabbis at the time. However, with the passing decades many religious leaders, especially from the religious-Zionist mvement, began to question the validity of the decree. Among them are Kiryat Shmona’s chief rabbi Tzephania Drori, Kiryat Arba’s Dov Lior, and Rabbi Nachum Rabinovich, head of the Maaleh Adumim yeshiva, who have all called for a review of the ban.

Torah Ammunition for the 'Opposition'
Rabbi Yehuda Kreuzer is the head of the Jewish town of Mitzpeh Yericho, northeast of Jerusalem, as well as head of the "Yeshiva of the Jewish Idea" and founder of HaTnuah L’Kinun HaMikdash (the Movement to Re-establish the Temple). He is one of the growing number of rabbis who believe that Jews should be allowed to enter onto the Temple Mount, and in an interview with IsraelNationalNews, he cited a well-known rabbinical source:

“In short, the Radbaz [a leading halachic authority from the 1500s] ruled that the Dome of the Rock is the Foundation Stone in the Holy of Holies…. He wrote that without a doubt this is the identity of the place. He wrote in a definite way the definite identity of the place,” Kreuzner reiterated.  “If so, it’s possible to do the measurements."

Rabbi Kreuzer noted that in Tractate Midot (Measurements) as well as in works by the Rambam (Maimonides, considered by many to be the greatest articulator of Torah law after Moses), the measurements of all parts of the Temple and the Mount are laid out in detail and agree with each other.

The Rabbi continued, “According to those [measurements], we can do all the calculations,” correlating all the areas of today’s Temple Mount to their original delineations.

“This is the essential source on which people who visit the Mount rely,” summarized the rabbi.
 
'Unclear Why It's Forbidden'
Responding to the recent letter calling for a renewal of the ban, Kreuzer said: “To this day, it’s unclear why it’s forbidden from a halachic perspective. What is the prohibition against someone going up? There’s no clear answer given [by those rabbis].”

Kreuzner continued with an admonition to his opponents: “He who knows [of the permission], knows; he who doesn’t, doesn’t. He who doesn’t know needs to learn. The problem is that he who doesn’t know doesn’t sit down and learn” why it’s in fact permitted.

The rabbi added that there have been numerous attempts made by the Chief Rabbinate of Israel to create a commission to resolve this issue, all of which failed to materialize. “We should all sit down” to explore this issue, he said, but “the problem is that they don’t want to.”

 

 

 

This is the long and the short of it. It has nothing to do with the Bible. It has everything to do with the politics! The politicians are afraid to stir up the Islamic barbarians. They think they know better then God! The truth is these Jewish secular politicians do not believe in God at all. They have no regard for the Bible as being God's Word. It is the politicians who distribute the money to the religious rabbis, and their individual schools of ministry throughout Israel. They have the rabbis in their pocket, and that is the long and short of it. The 1967 decree banning Jews from the Temple Mount was a political decision smoke-screened as if it were a Biblical (Torah) command. Today, a backlash is finally challenging this leaven of these Pharisees of this generation. It has been 40 years! An entire generation of Jews have grown up knowing only that it is illegal to walk upon the Temple Mount. An entire generation of Jews have perpetuated this lie, and refused to examine the truth of the matter. Not one single Jew, or anyone else for that matter, has suffered divine retribution of immediate death for unknowingly wandering atop the Holy of holies. The Biblical halachic obviously is only in force when there is a Holy of Holies standing on the mount. The halachic the Jews should fear is that of considering their ways in having procrastinated for 40 years now in not building the Holy Jewish Temple.

Haggai 1:3-5

3 Then came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet, saying,

4 Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste?

5 Now therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.

KJV

 Folks, the hypocritical Jewish religious leaders of this generation made a critical decision in 1967. They gave the Jews pig rather then the sacrificial lamb. They decided to honor, and venerate a wall rather then build the next Holy Jewish Temple. They chose a site of Jewish tradition over the most Holy Biblical site in all of human history. They chose to put a wall between the Jewish people, and their God. That wall is going to remain until their rule over Judaism is overthrown. I tell you true. That wall must be torn down, and it will be when Ezekiel's Temple is built. The entire Temple Mount must be cleansed of 2000 years of pollution before such a holy, and pure Temple as revealed in Ezekiel 40 - 48 can be constructed . The Holy of Holies will again be the centerpiece of that Temple. The wall that represents the separation of the Jewish people from their God must go. It can't stand in proximity to such holiness.

The massive Herodian ashlars making up the Western (Wailing) Wall stand today as they stood in the days of Christ. Our LORD Jesus Christ standing on the Mount of Olives looking over Herod's Temple with this Western Wall standing as it does today made a very specific prophecy. A prophecy for which the corrupted Jewish leadership of that day condemned Him to death. He said not one stone would be left standing upon another.

Matthew 24:1-3

24 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.

2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

KJV

Folks, I tell you true. The stones of the Western Wall still stand one upon another! Either Christ lied, or this prophecy is yet to be fulfilled! I tell you true. The Western Wailing Wall is yet to come down! This symbol of everything that is wrong, and unbiblical in Judaism must be overthrown. A much holier leadership must replace the Pharisees of today. A leadership with supernatural powers such as revealed in Revelation chapter 11. A holy and pure construction crew such as revealed in Revelation chapters 7 and 14. That filthy Wailing Wall will never be an object of tears once Ezekiel's Temple is built. A Biblical Judaism must be raised on the ashes of this present corrupted man centered Judaism which puts tradition above Torah! It is going to happen dear friends, and I pray you will rejoice with all the born again Christians, and Jews who are circumcised in their hearts. I pray you either have, or will come to this Christ of the Bible for forgiveness of sin. He is the only perfect atonement for sin. Only His blood has the power to save. Won't you come even now, and turn from this corrupted world of sin. Come to Christ!

 

Deuteronomy 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

Jeremiah 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

Romans 2:29

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

John 3:16-19

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

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

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.

KJV

Rice Visit: PA State Closer than Ever

by Hillel Fendel
 

(IsraelNN.com) Negotiations between Israel and PA continue at a "crazy" pace, agreement on dividing Jerusalem is "closer than ever," and U.S. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice is pushing for a nearly-complete agreement on a Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria by January.  So reports Aaron Klein of WorldNetDaily (WND).

Secretary Rice, completing a visit to the region today (Tuesday), has been pressing Israel to sign a document by the end of the year that would divide Jerusalem.  Rice says Israel must agree to a Palestinian state capital in Jerusalem - Israel's own capital - and a full Palestinian state in Judea, Samaria and Gaza. 

Despite official Israeli government denials, Jerusalem is thus very much on the negotiating table. The Shas Party, which has said it would quit the government if Jerusalem were to be negotiated, remains firmly in the government coalition.

The Rice Compromise: Israel Remains in Jerusalem for 1-5 Years
Klein quotes top diplomatic sources involved in the talks as saying that Rice has been pushing for a "compromise" between Israel and the PA that would involve Israel's withdrawal from eastern Jerusalem, including the Old City, within one to five years.

The Israeli team, led by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, is willing to conclude an agreement on a Palestinian state by the end of the year, but wants to leave talks to decide the fate of Jerusalem for a later date.  The PA team, however, wants a deal by January on all core issues, including the Holy City.

The Rice compromise, the sources told WND, asks Israeli leaders to bend and agree to promise sections of Jerusalem to the PA - but not to actually withdraw before one to five years have passed.  U.S. President George W. Bush would then, just days before his term in office ends, issue an official letter guaranteeing U.S. support for the agreement.

High Intensity Talks
WND's Klein quoted an unnamed Palestinian Authority negotiator saying that the intensity and frequency of Israeli-Palestinian talks in recent weeks have been "crazy," and that the sides have been meeting on a daily basis, usually at the highest levels. The negotiator further said Jerusalem is being discussed by both sides, and that the two teams are "closer than ever" on coming to an agreement on the status of the city.  "This claim was verified to WND by other diplomatic sources involved in the negotiations," Klein wrote.

Reports of the past few months say that the Olmert-Livni negotiators are prepared to give up well over 90% of Judea and Samaria, as well as land for a "safe passage" between those areas and Gaza.  This, despite the results of the withdrawal from Gaza three years ago, which include the takeover of the area by Hamas and incessant rocket attacks on nearby Israeli areas.

 

 

 

Imagine we make a peace deal with Cuba, and then Russia annexes Cuba installing hundreds of nuclear missiles. What would you think of an American government that would ignore the reality of what happened, and continue on with the peace deal made with the Cubans as if the Russian annexation never occurred. Folks, this is the Road Map! Bush is fixated with enacting the Road Map before he leaves office. It is a Satanic fixation attempting to turn back the prophecy clock of the Bible to pre 1967. God has absolutely discredited the Road Map with the final eviction of the Palestinian Authority out of Gaza leaving the blood thirsty Hamas terrorists to run the country. Polls show the majority of the Arabs living in Judah and Samaria would vote for Hamas over the Palestinian Authority so the same scenario that occurred in the Gaza will certainly happen in Judah and Samaria. The Road Map as a peace plan is dead, but Bush and Olmert will not let it die of it's own demise. They have resurrected it once again this time with a crazy intensity. I think Satan somehow offered Bush and Olmert the Kingdoms of the world, and both are believing the lie. I really have no other explanation for this latest craziness.

What an indictment against this last Evangelical era of the Church Age. Our Evangelical President, and both Evangelical candidates for the office are all agreed that the Road Map must be kept alive. Jerusalem must be turned over to the worst barbarians on the planet. Abbas, mentored by the arch terrorist Arafat, who himself wrote a book denouncing the Holocaust as a myth will be installed as the King of Judah by whoever will be our Evangelical President if the Road Map can be kept alive; If this kind of Evangelical pressure can continue to be applied to Israel. This kind of Evangelical political pressure will demand the Jews give up all aspirations for building a Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount as the Bible demands, but that they turn over the Temple Mount forever to the Koran inspired Islamic barbarians. These politicians know the gentile nations of the world will flock to the proposal once made by these barbarians that Jerusalem will be their capital. The same nations who refused to recognize Israel when it made the same claim 40 years ago after the 1967 War. Yes, this is all about turning back the clock to pre-1967 when the Omnipotent God of the Bible miraculously gave Israel all of Judah and Samaria including all of Jerusalem, and most importantly the Temple Mount. A secular liberal Israeli Government under extreme pressure form our Evangelical President are working like crazy to kick the God of the Bible out of Judah and Samaria so the Bible can be replaced with the Koran, and the God of the Bible replaced with the blasphemous Islamic Allah. They as well spit in the face of God as propose the Road Map. Satan is working overtime. He sees the return of the LORD Jesus Christ to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount as imminent. He knows he must stop Christ, and the best way is to turn back the prophetic clock of the Bible. Folks, this is beyond not only Satan's abilities, but the abilities of all the gentile nations of the world. I want you to know I am an enemy to this world. I am an enemy to the world politicians. I am a born again Christian who reads the Bible, and understands the day in which we live.
 

Matthew 16:1-4

16 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.

2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.

3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.

KJV

African Countries Want Racism Forum To Discuss Israel

(IsraelNN.com) Officials from 21 African countries meeting in Nigeria have adopted a blueprint for a Geneva meeting on racism next April in which to raise "concern about the plight of the Palestinian people under foreign occupations." Several countries have warned they may boycott the conference because of the anti-Israel attitude.

Canada already has said it will not attend the conference because it was apparent that the forum would include "regrettable anti-Semitism." The United States and Israel walked out at the previous conference on racism in 2001 after a text, later amended, labeled Israel a racist country that practices apartheid.

 

 

 

The King of the South mentioned in the Bible as being part of Armageddon is raising his ugly head in the news today. The Islamic part of Africa which includes most of North Africa hate the Jews with a passion. The massacre of Christians over the last decades will be child's play to what they would do to the Jews. It is understandable that the Islamic North African countries are behind the Islamic Palestinians 100 %, and pressuring all of Africa to condemn the Jews. It is this miraculous Third Exodus of our generation that has brought about the strife between the Jews, and the Islamic Arabs of Palestine. It is the God of the Bible who is forcing the Arabs to submit to His will, or suffer the consequences.  God is re-establishing the Jewish Kingdom in the Promised Land. It is a filthy sin to accuse Him of apartheid when He is preparing the way for the return of the LORD Jesus Christ.

Folks, you can feel sorry for what the Bible reveals about the North African Moslems. The same sorrow you have for all who are heading for eternity in Hell. The fate of these Africans is fixed in Ezekiel 39. Terrible, terrible judgment from the God of the Bible is their fate. These North Africans chose the Koran over the Bible. They desired the god of the barbarians over the God of the Bible. They sold their souls to Allah, and in the process lost their moral conscience. What they did to their black Christian brothers they would do even worse to the Jews. We are quickly approaching the day when Islam will call together all who will come to wipe Israel off the map. The black Islamic Africans of North Africa will be first in line according to the Bible. It will begin with the familiar out of control gyrations of the dance. The drums will beat the familiar black African rhythms as they work themselves into a blood thirsty animalistic frenzy. Then the call will be made to all black Moslems to march toward Jerusalem to kill the Jews. I suspect the machete wielding mulahs will lead the way crying for Jewish blood as the gyrating masses follow. Read Ezekiel 39 to see what happens when these North African Moslems cross the boarder into Israel.

Friend, the hatred for the Jews is the same hatred most of the world has for the God of the Jews. The God od Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It is not limited to Islam alone. The strife between Jew and gentile will only end when Christ returns to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. The times of the gentiles is about to end forever. Christ is the only answer. He is the only refuge. He is coming back as the King of the Jews to establish His Kingdom. Are you ready? Do you know Him as your Savior? Have you been washed in the sin cleansing blood of this Lamb? Only the born again will enter into the future God has planed for humanity. Friend, come to the coming again Christ of the Bible, and live.

 

Ezekiel 39

The End of Islam


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.
6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.


7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken.


9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years:
10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD.

 

11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamon-gog.


12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.


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.


17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.

18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.

20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.


21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.

22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward.

23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.
24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.

25 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;

26 After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.

27 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations;
28 Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which cause them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there.
29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.
