Islam's Heart of Contradiction

 

According to the WAFA editorial, the USA “now returns to it´s double standards policy, followed, amazingly, by the EU, both looking at the funerals of Palestinian kids being killed by the Israeli army, without saying any word, as if the Israeli terror against the helpless Palestinian is legitimate, and the Palestinians right of defending themselves is terror!”

Another aspect of Jewish control identified in the Arab press is the eternal Jewish enmity towards Islam. Journalist Khalid Amayreh, author of the article “Why I Hate America”, penned an article entitled “Jewish Islamophobia - The Most Virulent of All” in the November edition of the London-based Palestine Times. He wrote, “Since the 11 September terror attacks in New York and Washington, Zionist circles have been almost uncontrollably emitting their profound hatred of Islam in ways unseen since Hitler´s Nazi Germany… From Occupied Jerusalem, to London, to New York, to California, the Zionist, or the Zionist-controlled press has been propagating one and the same message: kill the Muslims, kill the Arabs, kill the terrorists!”

The Palestine Times editorialized that, as a result of this “seemingly coordinated campaign… unprecedented in its maliciousness, unmatched in its nefariousness,” Moslems have to “reckon with extremely virulent and rabid Zionist efforts to besmirch, vilify, demonize and even de-legitimize Muslims altogether.” In fact, Amayreh said that the “Zionist controlled press contained “explicit messages so horrifying that they can only be construed to mean or to imply condoning genocide against Muslims...”
 

This is "contradiction." In today's vernacular it is called "political spin." It is twisting the truth into a lie that your loyal followers must hear, and in the process hook the gullible who have some sympathy for the contradictor's cause.  America has just experienced 8 years of this intensive "contradiction" manipulation. It peaked with the lie that filthy sex which always is around should now be acceptable, or at the least excusably accepted. Those expert in "spin" became household names. They were highlighted in the news daily. The "contradictory lie" was expected with each new political revelation. How refreshing that those daily faces for the most part have faded into oblivion.

The effective use of the "contradictory lie" has not escaped Islam's methodology. In truth, it is of great appeal.  They observed how the biggest liars of all time used the "contradictory lie" to gain acceptability for the filth of perversion. Notice the term - Jewish Islamophobia. The use of Hitler's Nazi Germany may be the greatest application of the "contradicting lie" ever in contemporary news journalism.

The loyal demand any truth that cuts to the heart be twisted into an acceptable lie. The gullible, -  well the gullible hear what they want to hear!

Read Lesson #9 of the Ezekiel Bible Study - Ezekiel was also the victim of the "contradictory lie,"

Rev 21:8
8But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
KJV

Deut 33:29
29Happy art thou, O Israel: who is like unto thee, O people saved by the LORD, the shield of thy help, and who is the sword of thy excellency! and thine enemies shall be found liars unto thee; and thou shalt tread upon their high places
KJV

1 Tim 1:10
10For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;
KJV

Rev 2:2-3
2I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:

3And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
KJV

JERUSALEM PATRIARCHS CHIDE ISRAEL OVER NAZARETH MOSQUE

ICEJ NEWS - 11/30/2001
The senior clerics of Christian churches in Jerusalem's Old City charged on Wednesday that the dispute over plans to build a grand mosque near the Basilica of the Annunciation in Nazareth shows Israel cannot be trusted to respect any religion's holy places and the need for international guarantees.

The statement, signed by the heads of all the historic churches, including the Greek Orthodox, Armenian, and Latin Patriarchs, Franciscan Custos of the Holy Land, and Anglican and Lutheran bishops, referred to plans to build a mosque on an area near the Basilica where the Nazareth Municipality had planned a plaza for pilgrims arriving for Millennium observances.

After radical Muslim elements forcibly occupied the land for more than a year, the Israeli government offered a compromise according to which a smaller mosque would be built, but only after the visit of Pope John Paul II.

Two weeks ago, the Israel Lands Administration authorized the use of state land for the mosque, removing the last obstacle to construction. But Muslim Waqf officials sent construction crews onto the site without all the proper permits in hand and began opening a deep hole for the mosque's foundation. The start of construction work has brought the simmering controversy to the fore once again.

The church leaders demanded the government revoke its decision and charged the plan to build a mosque had been used by "certain Israeli political circles" to sow division between Muslims and Christians and among Muslims themselves. "We are surprised and distressed to see that promises and assurances given us by government representatives have not been honored, and that the requests, appeals, and protests of the Christian Churches in the Holy Land and throughout the world have been treated with virtual contempt," the statement said.
 

All the signatory hold to the false doctrine that their individual denomination, or possibly some future united Christianity controlled by their denomination will receive the future blessings promised in the Bible to Israel. Each has taught their gullible followers that they are the exclusive Church God will bless and honor in the Holy Land some day. They have taught this for hundreds of years. All this in spite of the clear statements in the Bible that it is Israel not some Christian denomination to which God gave the promises. It is no wonder that all these senior clerics are upset with Israel. Israel is back, and in control of the Holy Land. The reasoning and theology of these great Christian leaders of today is rather suspect. They usurp all Israel's future blessings for themselves claiming everywhere the Bible says Israel it really means them, but when the Bible curses Israel for transgressing they leave stand those curses as applicable to the literal Israel? Now they blame Israel for the Moslem Mosque? It must gall them to no end that in their twisted thinking they are acknowledging God has given Israel control over all their holy sites. It seems God is forcing the whole world to acknowledge a literal Israel will be the recipient of all the future glory associated with the Holy Land and the city of Jerusalem in particular. Christ is going to establish His throne in Jerusalem, but it will not be one of the Christian denomination's Jerusalem. It will not be a Moslem Jerusalem. It will be a Jewish Jerusalem!

Ps 68:29
29Because of thy temple at Jerusalem shall kings bring presents unto thee.

Ps 147:2-3
2The LORD doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.

3He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
KJV

Joel 3:16-17
16The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.

17So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.
KJV

Zeph 3:14-17
14Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel; be glad and rejoice with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem.

15The LORD hath taken away thy judgments, he hath cast out thine enemy: the king of Israel, even the LORD, is in the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more.

16In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack.

17The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.
KJV

Ezek 37:21-24
21And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:

22And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:

23Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.

24And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.

Two Suicide Bombers Set off Blasts, Dozens of Casualties

Published: Dec 1, 2001

 

JERUSALEM (AP) - Two suicide bombers detonated explosives in a crowded pedestrian mall in downtown Jerusalem late Saturday, killing themselves and at least one person and wounding more than 130, police and paramedics said.

Witnesses said they saw several bodies lying on the ground.

"There were lots of limbs and dead bodies," said Michael Perry, 37, who ran out of a bar along the Ben Yehuda pedestrian mall after hearing the back-to-back blasts just before midnight. "I saw three dead and what looked like the remains of the suicide bomber. It was just a lump of something," Perry said.

 

The casualty numbers are rising quickly. They are mostly children (teens) targeted by those lumps of not something, but nothing, - but road-kill scum of the world! The LORD of hosts will be Israel's revenge. If not today, most certainly for all eternity!

12:10) 16 dead in Haifa suicide bus bombing
By The Jerusalem Post Internet Staff

At least 16 passengers died when a suicide bomber blew himself up on the No. 16 bus in Haifa minutes ago.

At least 60 riders sustained wounds in the blast, Israel Radio said.
 

Ten killed, 180 wounded in Jerusalem bombing
By Etgar Lefkovits and News Agencies

JERUSALEM (December 2) - Ten persons were reported killed and some 180 wounded when two Palestinian suicide bombers detonated themselves in the heart of Jerusalem last night close to midnight.

The two explosions at the foot of the Rehov Ben-Yehuda pedestrian mall were followed shortly afterward by a car bomb on nearby Rehov Kook, which apparently did not cause many casualties.

The mall had been packed with the usual Saturday night crowd of mainly teenagers out for the evening. The bomb scene was gruesome with overturned tables, bloody chairs, and bodies and body parts strewn on the ground, in one of the worst attacks in Jerusalem in months.
 

 

Isa 8:13-18
13Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.

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

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

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

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

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

Sharon seeks Bush OK attack that could end Arafat era

SPECIAL TO WORLD TRIBUNE.COM

Sunday, December 2, 2001

 

WASHINGTON — In his meeting with President George Bush today, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon may seek U.S. backing for a counterattack that would either exile Yasser Arafat or destroy the Palestinian Authority altogether.

20:40) Palestinians on suicide bomber: 'We are proud of him'
By Mohammed Daraghmeh, The Associated Press


Outside, Hamas members fired in the air in celebration. ...

Maher Habashi boarded a bus in Haifa around noon today, paid the fare of five shekels and within seconds set off the nail-studded explosives strapped to his body.

The blast killed Habashi and 15 bus passengers and bystanders, police said. About 40 people were wounded.

The elder Habashi, a municipal worker in Nablus, got word of his son's death after he returned home from evening prayers to join the family for the sundown meal that breaks the daily fast during the holy month of Ramadan.

Habashi was stunned as neighbors and friends came to congratulate him. "He got engaged one-and-a-half months ago and we were getting ready for his wedding," Habashi said, crying and holding on to relatives for support.

Hundreds of Palestinians filled Habashi's home and spilled out into the street, most coming to offer their congratulations and others, their sympathies.

"Everybody feels bad when they lose their son," said Habashi's cousin Adel, 45, a school teacher. "But we are proud of him, you should be proud of him," he said to Habashi.
 

"I saw people without arms. I saw a person with their stomach hanging open. I saw a 10-year-old-boy breathe his last breath. I can't believe anybody would do anything like this.."

--Eyewitness Yossi Mizrahi told Reuters after the suicide attacks in Jerusalem last night.

 

 

 

"Congratulations" The Islamic, Arab, Palestinians want the world to congratulate them, and the society they have created under the leadership of Yasser Arafat. They will certainly claim "no hands" before a world that almost giggles at their sham antics of innocents and phony condemnation. It's the same "no hands" every Nazi criminal claimed after World War Two, and the same malicious giggle heard from anti-Semitic's throughout that era. Hitler never changed his spots to the end, and Arafat will hate Jews to his death also. God dealt with the Nazi final solution for Jews. Who can doubt the LORD of hosts will deal with the Islamic, Arab, Palestinian's solution? They who want to be congratulated for their hate filled final solution against the same Jews.

Est 6:1-13
6:1On that night could not the king sleep, and he commanded to bring the book of records of the chronicles; and they were read before the king.
2And it was found written, that Mordecai had told of Bigthana and Teresh, two of the king's chamberlains, the keepers of the door, who sought to lay hand on the king Ahasuerus.
3And the king said, What honour and dignity hath been done to Mordecai for this? Then said the king's servants that ministered unto him, There is nothing done for him.
4And the king said, Who is in the court? Now Haman was come into the outward court of the king's house, to speak unto the king to hang Mordecai on the gallows that he had prepared for him.
5And the king's servants said unto him, Behold, Haman standeth in the court. And the king said, Let him come in.
6So Haman came in. And the king said unto him, What shall be done unto the man whom the king delighteth to honour? Now Haman thought in his heart, To whom would the king delight to do honour more than to myself?
7And Haman answered the king, For the man whom the king delighteth to honour,
8Let the royal apparel be brought which the king useth to wear, and the horse that the king rideth upon, and the crown royal which is set upon his head:
9And let this apparel and horse be delivered to the hand of one of the king's most noble princes, that they may array the man withal whom the king delighteth to honour, and bring him on horseback through the street of the city, and proclaim before him, Thus shall it be done to the man whom the king delighteth to honour.
10Then the king said to Haman, Make haste, and take the apparel and the horse, as thou hast said, and do even so to Mordecai the Jew, that sitteth at the king's gate: let nothing fail of all that thou has spoken.
11Then took Haman the apparel and the horse, and arrayed Mordecai, and brought him on horseback through the street of the city, and proclaimed before him, Thus shall it be done unto the man whom the king delighteth to honour.
12And Mordecai came again to the king's gate. But Haman hasted to his house mourning, and having his head covered.
13And Haman told Zeresh his wife and all his friends every thing that had befallen him. Then said his wise men and Zeresh his wife unto him, If Mordecai be of the seed of the Jews, before whom thou hast begun to fall, thou shalt not prevail against him, but shalt surely fall before him.
KJV

Haman thought in his heart he would be congratulated for his final solution plan for the Jews. How wrong he was!


 

 

Only five days ago, IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Sha’ul Mofaz told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee that Arafat was directly responsible for many terrorist attacks. Arafat did not merely give a "green light" to terrorism, Mofaz said, but was the very initiator of many attacks. Arutz-7's Haggai Seri reports that Arafat convened the leaders of Hamas and Islamic Jihad in February 2000, and told them to commit terrorist attacks within pre-1967 Israel with the purpose of getting Israel to "surrender." Later, he gave a similar order to Tanzim (Fatah militia) heads.

The PA issued an official statement of condolences to the "people of Israel" following last night's attack in Jerusalem. Although some Israeli media termed the statement "unusually firm," media analyst Michael Widlanski notes that it painted the PA and the Palestinian people as the victims of the "explosions," and concentrated more on the damage caused to Palestinian interests as opposed to the essential evil of the murders.

'IT'S US - OR THEM'

By URI DAN and JOHN LEHMANN

 

December 3, 2001 -- Israel will unleash its own war on terrorism after a weekend of bloody violence spurred Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to issue his battle cry: "It's either Israel or Arafat."

Hours after another suicide bomb attack killed 15 people in Haifa, Sharon told The Post that an emergency Israeli Cabinet meeting today would approve "extreme new measures against the Palestinian terrorist organizations in order to destroy them."

Israeli military forces plan a series of combat missions into Palestinian towns to root out terrorists and confiscate illegal weapons.

The crackdown will come after a bloody weekend in which 25 people were killed and nearly 200 injured in separate bombing attacks in Jerusalem and Haifa, a northern port city.

Furious after 14 months of violence, Sharon detailed his hard-line military strategy to President Bush in an hourlong meeting in the Oval Office yesterday - and received U.S. support.

"We are in a war - it's either Israel or Arafat," a stern-looking Sharon told The Post before boarding a plane back to Jerusalem.

"Until now, we took the right measures against the Palestinian terrorists, but I have come to the conclusion that they are not enough and, therefore, we'll have to add new measures, which will be harsher and of a larger scope."

An official said Sharon told Bush that "Israel will act against those who perpetuate terror and those who send them on their missions."

Bush denounced the bombings as "horrific acts of murder" and issued his own grim message before the meeting, saying it was time for advocates of peace "to rise up and fight terror."

Signaling a tougher stand against Arafat, Bush put the onus on the Palestinian leader to take immediate action to eliminate militant groups, such as the Islamic Jihad and Hamas, the latter of which claimed responsibility for the attacks.

"Chairman Arafat must do everything in his power to find those who murdered innocent Israelis and bring them to justice," Bush said.

Images of bodies lying on sidewalks and blood-smeared survivors crying out in agony filled TV screens in Israel, prompting senior government ministers to declare that a "turning point has been reached."

 

God must also deal with the rebels of this world! He has offered grace and mercy, but they mock His plan of reconciliation in Christ. They smokescreen their rejection of Christ with such lofty terms as "freedom of religion," but God is not gullible. He knows the truth of what is in the heart of the rebel.  God has long known the rebel will never change his spots. It is why the eternal hell was included in His creation plan. The offer of reconciliation ends at death! The limit has been reached! The offer of reconciliation does have limits. December 7 marked the limits for America in the last generation, and September 11 for this generation. Israel may have reached the limit today?

 "turning point has been reached." ?

These are just puny nations that God counts as dust. What will it be like when the awesome God who calls Himself the LORD of hosts reaches the limit of His offer of reconciliation through grace and mercy - through the Lord Jesus Christ - through the only savior offered as a sacrifice for sin? The offer to be "born again."

  Matt 25:31-34
31When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

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

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

34Then 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

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

Ps 24:7-10
7Lift up your head, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

8Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

9Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.
KJV

 

Zech 10:3-6
3Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I punished the goats: for the LORD of hosts hath visited his flock the house of Judah, and hath made them as his goodly horse in the battle.

4Out of him came forth the corner, out of him the nail, out of him the battle bow, out of him every oppressor together.

5And they shall be as mighty men, which tread down their enemies in the mire of the streets in the battle: and they shall fight, because the LORD is with them, and the riders on horses shall be confounded.

6And I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph, and I will bring them again to place them; for I have mercy upon them: and they shall be as though I had not cast them off: for I am the LORD their God, and will hear them.
KJV

Wednesday - December 5, 2001

 

NEW YORK, Nov. 29 (JTA) — With an international forum set to condemn Israel once again, Israeli and Jewish activists fear the meeting will further harm peacemaking efforts between Arabs and Jews.

Most important, the Dec. 5 reconvening of the Fourth Geneva Convention could roil the bad blood between Israelis and Palestinians just as Washington is prodding them toward a cease-fire.

But the bottom line, say Jewish observers, is that next week´s gathering in Geneva — just like the U.N. anti-racism conference in Durban, South Africa, three months ago — will lay bare a stark fact: The Jewish state is held to a different standard than the rest of the world.

The Fourth Geneva Convention, centered on the "protection of civilian persons in time of war," was established in response to Nazi atrocities committed against civilians, primarily Jews, in occupied territories.

The convention, to which every country is a signatory, has been convened only once in its long existence — on July 15, 1999, at the behest of the Arab world, to scrutinize Israeli treatment of Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and eastern Jerusalem.

That meeting, boycotted by Israel and the United States, was adjourned indefinitely after only 17 minutes.

Now it is set to reconvene Wednesday, again without Israeli or U.S. representation.

Again, the focus will be Israeli behavior in the territories.

 

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's statement to the nation

JERUSALEM (December 4) - ...
 

If you ask what the aim of this war is, I will tell you. The aim of this war of terror, the aim of the terrorists, their aides and dispatchers, the aim of those who enable them to perpetrate their acts quietly without disturbance, is to expel us from here. Their aim is to bring us to total despair, a loss of hope, and a loss of the national vision which leads us - "a free people in our land, the land of Zion and Jerusalem."

Citizens of Israel, this will not happen! There is no nation in the world that has demonstrated such maturity and stamina. I am proud to be part of this nation. I am aware of the fact we also face difficulties in other spheres of our lives; here too, we demonstrate our integrity and strength.

They have already understood that they will not succeed. They have already understood that our nation is stronger and that our spirit of resistance is firmer than they ever could have imagined. Therefore, they continue to slaughter children, youths, men, and women, citizens of Israel and other nations - human beings -just for the sake of killing, just to murder.

I tell you from here, from Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the State of Israel - united Jerusalem. I tell you this, you and all those listening today around the whole world: The blood of those who will rise up to kill us will be on their hands. ...
 

(08:15) UN General Assembly condemns Israel
By Edith M. Lederer, The Associated Press

UNITED NATIONS - Ignoring Israel's plea to make "a moral choice" and reject Palestinian terrorism, the UN General Assembly followed an annual ritual last night and strongly criticized Israel's policies toward the Palestinians.

The General Assembly ended a three-day Mideast debate yesterday and voted on half a dozen Mideast resolutions as Israeli helicopter gunships fired missiles near Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat's main Gaza headquarters. The strikes were in retaliation for Islamic militants' weekend suicide bombings which killed 26 people in Israel.

Before the vote on four resolutions directly related to the Palestinians, Israel's UN Ambassador Yehuda Lancry said he had to break Israel's traditionally silent objection to the annual resolutions because of the "carnage of Palestinian terrorism in Jerusalem and Haifa" over the past few days.

He appealed to the other 188 nations in the General Assembly to "make a moral choice today and ... detach themselves from resolutions which would endow Palestinian terrorism with an international legitimacy."

But the General Assembly voted in favor of the four Palestinian-related resolutions, which each received over 100 "yes" votes from about 160 nations that voted.

The key resolution backed Palestinian rights to an independent state on the basis of "land for peace" and called for an Israeli withdrawal and a return to negotiations on a final peace settlement.

"We are very satisfied," the Palestinian UN observer, Nasser Al-Kidwa, said afterward, accusing Israel of doing everything it could "to sabotage all efforts to resume this peace process."
 

THE TELEGRAM NOBODY BELIEVED

A.J.H.

"Nobody believed me!" That's what Gerhart Riegner said, 50 years after it happened. He was working at a World Jewish Congress listening post in Geneva in Europe during the outbreak of World War II.

It was Aug.8, 1942. The world had not yet seen the terrible Holocaust which the enemy would unleash on the Jews in Europe. When Riegner got his information, he tried to pass it on to American and British officials, but no one would believe it. Who would ever think about murdering millions of innocent people?

We do not like to hear bad news. We would rather have people say nice things to us or about us. No one wants to be told that they are a sinner and in danger of being in hell. Gerhart Riegner found that even important government officials do not like to hear bad reports.

Actually, Riegner admitted that it took him almost two days to convince himself that the message was real and that the danger was great. When he was finally convinced, he tried to convince others. But nobody would believe him at first.

Finally word was gotten to the State Department in Washington where officials checked with Riegner. Then other checks were made and it was found that it was true. But this was only after months of lost time. During this time many lives were lost. Many millions more would be lost before it was all over.

No one knows if lives could have been saved had countries such as the USA and Britain acted faster. We will never know the answer to that. Riegner thinks that one reason people didn't believe him was that the plan to kill so many Jews "went beyond human understanding". No one had ever thought of doing anything like that before. It was so unbelievable.

When people hear the gospel, they frequently refuse to believe it because they have never seen Hell or Heaven. Just because we have not seen something with our eyes is not a good reason to refuse to believe something.

We are told by the Lord Jesus, "He that heareth My Word and believeth God that sent Me hath everlasting life." John 5:24. The Bible is filled with verses which tell of the need to believe God and to believe on His Son. You know John 3:16 "...that whosoever BELIEVETH on Him should not perish but have ever lasting life."

There are also warnings: "See that ye refuse not Him that speaketh" Heb.12:25. "They could not enter in because of unbelief" Heb.3:19. God is not asking men and women to believe something which is imaginary. He is telling us to believe Him through His Word. Will you believe God?

 

Gerhart Riegner died this week. He was the first outsider to find out, and write a warning about the "final solution" of Hitler and the Nazis. The planed internment, concentration, and extermination of the millions of Jews under Hitler's authority in the lands controlled by Germany.

A past generation evaluated the mistake it made by not heeding the warning given by Gerhart Riegner, and in the aftermath of that reality allowed Israel to return to it's ancestral homeland. This generation must now evaluate another warning about the Jews and Israel staying in that homeland. The intent of the society raised by Yasser Arafat must be rejected. Our last generation rejected the society raised by Hitler and his Nazis. This generation must now decide if it will reject the Arafat society and his Palestinian Authority. A society that glorifies the indiscriminate murder of Jews and Jewish supporters because they know they can't win. Hitler was willing to sacrifice all Germany when all was lost. The last pictures of Hitler was him patting the cheek of a child soldier about to be sacrificed for the Furor. Arafat has proved willing to do the same for the Palestinian children. Hitler's famous last words about Germany not being worthy of him should ring in the ears of every Arafat lover. Hitler turned on his sheep at the end because they failed to stop the overwhelming power of the Allies. I suspect the Palestinians will see Arafat do the same should he live long enough to say some last words? There are some of the human race so perverted, and so blood thirsty that they have lost the right to life. Hitler was one! Arafat is another!

Prov 11:19
19As righteousness tendeth to life: so he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own death.
KJV

Ps 10:7-12
7His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity.

8He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor.

9He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net.

10He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones.

11He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he will never see it.

12Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble.
KJV

Ps 94:6-10
6They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.

7Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.

8Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?

9He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?

10He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?
KJV
 

A past generation in Israel chose the murderer over the innocent. It proved to be the greatest mistake by any generation of all times.


Mark 15:7
7And there was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection.

This generation must now make it's choice about Israel, and Israel itself must make a choice. Watch the news for the answers? Will Arafat go the way of Hitler, or will world pressure force Israel to back away? Or, will secular Israel just get cold feet, and back off on it's own?

Amos 9:10-15
10All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us.

11In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:

12That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this.

13Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.

14And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.

15And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.

(13:10) Iranian FM: Stop Israeli 'slaughter'

Iranian Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi called for an emergency meeting of the Islamic Council to discuss what he termed the Israeli "slaughter in the occupied territories."

Kharrazi made the statements during a conversation with his Qatari counterpart Sheik Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabr Al-Thani today.

The council encompasses 56 Islamic countries.

(11:35) Geneva Conventions meeting on Israel opens today
By Jonathon Fowler, The Associated Press

GENEVA - Overriding US protests, Switzerland opened an international conference today examining whether Israel is violating the Geneva Conventions on warfare by its occupation of Palestinian territory.

The meeting of nations that have signed the 1949 treaties on the conduct of war is looking at the situation in the Middle East and is expected to conclude that Israel is breaching the accords.

It is expected also to call on Israel to respect the agreement on the treatment of civilians in occupied territory and allow independent observers to monitor the situation in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

The United States is boycotting the meeting, claiming it is "counterproductive." Israel also has refused to attend.

"We believe that convening the conference after the massacre of almost 30 Israelis over the weekend renders it even more meaningless that it would be in any case," said Israel's ambassador to the United Nations, Yaakov Levy.

A series of suicide bombings and shootings by Islamic militant groups killed 26 people in Jerusalem and Haifa on Saturday and Sunday. Israel hit back with two days of military strikes targeting Gaza and the West Bank

 

(07:45) Jerusalem suicide bomber targeted government ministers
By The Jerusalem Post Internet Staff

A Palestinian suicide bomber, reportedly targeting senior government ministers, blew himself up near a Jerusalem hotel early this morning.

Eleven people sustained minor wounds in the blast.

The blast took place in front of the David Citadel Hotel (formerly the Jerusalem Hilton) on King David Street shortly after 7:30 a.m.

The pedestrians, waiting at a nearby bus stop, were lightly wounded by shards of glass and metal fragments in the explosion.

They were taken to Hadassah University Hospital on Mt. Scopus and Shaare Zedek Hospital for treatment, Israel Radio reported.

The terrorist, killed in the blast, was targeting senior government ministers, according to a statement released by Islamic Jihad.

Jerusalem Mayor Ehud Olmert, Minister of Internal Security Uzi Landau, and Religious Affairs Minister Asher Ohana were at the hotel at the time of the attack, Israel Radio reports.

The organization took responsibility for the blast in a fax sent to the Reuters bureau in Beirut. The bomber, Daoud Abu Sawaid was reportedly an Islamic Jihad member, 43, from Artas near Bethlehem.

The Abu Sawaid family has not yet received official notification of his death, Army Radio reported.

Police said the nail and metal-studded bomb was very powerful and contained anti-tank munitions.
 

Another premature explosion. The target was the hotel, and the dignitaries within. This killer was crossing the street heading for the hotel when the bomb went off prematurely.  The Palestinians will now have a great celebration honoring Daoud Abu Sawaid as a hero? What a twisted culture this is! The majority of their heroes are the guys who shoot themselves in the foot? Any other culture would categorize them as fools who wasted their lives for nothing. It is sad that not every bomber has the same fate. The Palestinians certainly have a poor record of hitting their targets. The few that do accomplish their task indicate just how bad this could be were the God of the Bible not intervening.

These are sad days for Israel because of the successful terrorist attacks. The days would be filled with much more sorrow were God to just let the terrorists have their way unabated.

Israel has reacted to the successful attacks. It has also reacted to the attitude of indiscriminate murder of it's citizenry.  The majority of the world is showing what it's attitude is toward the indiscriminate killing of Jews. It plays the political game of tying the hands of Israel to one set of rules while giving Arafat and the Palestinians the freedom to send suicide bombers into Israel unabated.

Islam now rattles it's swords to influence all that these are the rules they want to keep. They pray to Allah that the success rate would get better. The plan is as long as Islam can't for now expel the Jews from Israel it will be satisfied with indiscriminate murder in the mean time. The world must decide the worth of Jewish life as opposed to Islam's satisfaction. America has shown the world the value it places on the lives of it's citizenry. It has turned the world upside-down rather then sacrifice a few citizens every year for appeasement. The same should be applied to Israel. God has already stated His value put on His children. The value is centered in their attachment to God's chosen King! The world should heed His words.

Matt 10:29-31
29Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
30But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
31Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.

9Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac;

16I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.

17There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.

18His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.

F. GRAHAM IN TROUBLE FOR REMARKS ON ISLAM—We disagree with Franklin Graham on his ecumenism, but applaud him for speaking out against Islam. MSNBC says he is "in trouble" with political friends for recently calling the entire Islamic religion "wicked, violent and not of the same God." "I don't believe this is a wonderful, peaceful religion," said Graham. "When you read the Koran…it instructs the killing of the infidel…those that are non-Muslim." Asked to clarify, Graham repeated his charge that Islam, as a whole, is evil. "It wasn't Methodists flying into those buildings, it wasn't Lutherans," said Graham. "It was an attack on this country by people of the Islamic faith." The White House distanced itself from his remarks, saying Pres. Bush "views Islam as a religion that preaches peace …." But, it practices violence toward the U.S. and Israel.

 

Pat Robertson Resigns as Christian Coalition Head

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (Reuters) - Televangelist Pat Robertson resigned on Wednesday as head of the Christian Coalition, the powerful conservative political organization he founded in 1989 after a failed campaign for the U.S. presidency.

Robertson, widely criticized for implying the United States brought the Sept. 11 attacks on itself by abandoning God, said he stepped down to focus his energies on his Christian ministry and The Christian Broadcasting Network.

"I feel that we in America are right now in the midst of the greatest spiritual revival that I have seen in my lifetime, and I personally feel that my calling is to be involved in spiritual things," he told Reuters in a telephone interview.

The Christian Coalition spearheaded the political movement of the U.S. religious right in the 1990s, promoting conservative Christian values and most recently claiming credit for the election of President Bush and Republican control of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Robertson, 71, came under fire in September after fellow evangelist Jerry Falwell, in an appearance on Robertson's "The 700 Club" program, said the secularization of the country by liberals, gays and the American Civil Liberties Union was to blame for the Sept. 11 attacks on New York and Washington.

Robertson, in the program that aired on Sept. 13, said the attacks occurred "because God Almighty is lifting His protection from us." But he distanced himself from Falwell's comments, which Falwell later sought to clarify but did not retract.

"I do a talk show and I have guests. I hate to take the heat for every guest I have," Robertson said.

They blurted out their statements in moments of passion. Now the spin is working to make what was said palatable to apostate Christianity and the world. The truth is not the important issue. Making truthful statements palatable is what the real issue has become even though the spin changes that truth into a lie!

Why all the spin? It is because the apostate Christians along with the world are offended. This is not the truth they want to hear. The all encompassing good (their sinful definition of goodness) go to heaven is all they will tolerate. Anything else like Bible doctrine, like Christ being the only way, and the ratings will drop. The money flow will dry. The numbers will dip. Their popularity will diminish.

Robertson blurted out 2 very significant statements that stuck in my mind:

I feel that we in America are right now in the midst of the greatest spiritual revival that I have seen in my lifetime

The truth is this "greatest spiritual revival" is really reflective only in the growth of apostasy within Christianity. The apostates must not be offended, or the greatest revival will suddenly become nothing at all. The greatest spiritual revival thrives only because it does not offend the tares, the Catholic, or the Neo-Evangelical with truth. This is a false revival for a phony Christian generation that God would spew from His mouth. It is rich - TV huckster rich, but corrupt to the point of nakedness in God's eyes.

The second statement is true though he should bite his tongue in the admission:

  I do a talk show

Talk about rich. Talk about money that only a talk show host could generate as opposed to humble pastors and missionaries. Talk about wealth using God to parley $70 into a personal family estate of millions upon millions. Talk about the money changers who are the only group that Christ took the whip against for using God in similar manner. Talk about a humble talk show while claiming direct revelation from the very mouth of God at the same time! Talk about the Liberian gold mine manipulations in the name of Christianity for the sake of money just  yesterday on Fox News. Talk about claiming to be in the same mold as the true great revivalists of the past like George Whitefield who denounced the Roman Catholic Church as the great apostate whore of his day. The Roman Catholic Church has the same theology as it had in Whitefield's day, but it's inclusion and acceptance in "the greatest spiritual revival that I have seen in my lifetime" is the truth of what this revival is all about! It's numbers are based on the growth of apostasy. It is the get rich talk show revival of today's Christianity.

Rev 3:14-17
14And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

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

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

17Because 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

Num 23:8-11
8How shall I curse, whom God hath not cursed? or how shall I defy, whom the LORD hath not defied?

9For from the top of the rocks I see him, and from the hills I behold him: lo, the people shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations.

10Who can count the dust of Jacob, and the number of the fourth part of Israel? Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his!

11And Balak said unto Balaam, What hast thou done unto me? I took thee to curse mine enemies, and, behold, thou hast blessed them altogether.
KJV

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

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

Neh 13:2
2Because they met not the children of Israel with bread and with water, but hired Balaam against them, that he should curse them: howbeit our God turned the curse into a blessing.
KJV

John 11:49-52
49And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,

50Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

51And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;

52And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.
KJV

Balaam blurted out; Caiaphas blurted out. Both did their best in the midst of their constituency to spin the truth they blurted out into a palatable lie.

Islam is a wicked, violent religion! Roman Catholicism is just as wicked and violent! So are all religions, and all denominations Christian or otherwise that spin for their benefit the saving power of Christ! American Christianity needs a wake-up no matter how shocking and offensive. Only Christ can save. Only His blood sacrifice has the power to cleanse from sin. Only by going to Him can salvation be accomplished. This is the truth apostate Christianity can't bare to hear. This is the offence (the curse) of the cross that God turns into a blessing! It is to these apostates that the main stream Christian leaders of today spin the truth until it becomes the lie they can bare. It is all about numbers folks! It is all about money!

Danger of war as Arafat hits at Hamas
 
FROM CHRISTOPHER WALKER IN GAZA CITY
 
THOUSANDS of Palestinians were on the brink of civil war last night as the people of Gaza prepared to bury a young Hamas activist shot dead by Yassir Arafat’s police.

The 18-year-old supporter of the radical group was killed in the mêlée after a local mosque mobilised an army of young men to protect Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, the Hamas leader, from arrest.

God has a way of balancing the evil men perform. Arafat is now finding the same children he sowed all the hate for Israel are now showing him no tolerance when his life is on the line. He could manipulate the world with his words of contradictions, but he can't fool his own children. Now he must reap what he has sown!

I wonder if the mosque that mobilized this 18-year old to his death will celebrate his martyrdom? Will he go to the Islamic martyr's paradise where he will be given 70 sex kitten wives by Allah? What if the rolls were reversed, and he had killed one of Arafat's policeman? Would the policeman be an Islamic martyr? Or, does Allah only give sexual favors to those who kill Jews? This Islamic culture has some serious theological problems!

Hos 8:7
7For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: it hath no stalk: the bud shall yield no meal: if so be it yield, the strangers shall swallow it up.
KJV

 Pay to Shoot a Jew

Fatah 'selling' shots at Gilo to Hamas
By Margot Dudkevitch

JERUSALEM (December 7) - While obeying an order by Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat to refrain from shooting at Jerusalem's Gilo neighborhood, Fatah Tanzim activists in the Bethlehem area are allowing gunmen affiliated with Islamic Jihad and Hamas to shoot at Gilo in exchange for payments of hundreds of shekels, a senior Israeli security source told The Jerusalem Post yesterday.

"The sums range from hundreds of shekels to NIS 1,000 to NIS 1,500," the official said.

All the shooting attacks on Gilo in recent weeks apart from Wednesday night were perpetrated by Islamic Jihad and Hamas gunmen.

The Temple Mount Archaeological Destruction

 

The Temple Mount, one of the most important archaeological sites in the world, has never been archaeologically excavated. Since 1996 the Wakf ( the Muslim Trust) has been doing construction work on the mount in order to build the biggest mosque in the Middle East. Until recently the work consisted of mainly renovating an existing structure. This structure is known as Solomon Stables, which was last in use by the crusaders in the medieval era. In early November 1999 the Wakf began digging a monumental entrance to the mosque, since it is an underground structure. Bulldozers and other heavy machinery that caused irreversible archaeological damage dug this hole, 50 meters long, 25 meters wide and 12 meters deep. This digging constitutes a violation of Jerusalem's municipal construction law and also, more importantly, a violation of the Israeli antiquities law. The government of Israel, in the name of peace, decided to turn a blind eye and thereby unofficially approved this violation of the law.

 

Chanukah
December 10 - December 17, 2001

The Holiday of Lights -- celebrating the miracle of a little oil that lasted eight days, and continues to illuminate our lives to this day
 

by Marshall Roth

The Hebrew word Chanukah means "dedication." In the 2nd century BCE, the Syrian-Greek regime of Antiochus sought to pull Jews away from Judaism, with the hopes of assimilating them into Hellenism -- Greek culture. Antiochus outlawed aspects of Jewish observance -- including the study of Torah -- which began to decay the foundation of Jewish life and practice. During this period, many of the Jews began to assimilate into Greek culture, taking on Greek names and marrying non-Jews.

In response, a band of Jewish settlers took to the hills of Judea in open revolt against this threat to Jewish life. Led by Matitiyahu, and later his son Judah the Maccabee ("The Hammer"), this small band of pious Jews led guerrilla warfare against the Syrian army.

Antiochus sent thousands of well-armed troops to crush the rebellion -- but the Maccabees succeeded in driving the foreigners from their land.

Jewish fighters entered Jerusalem in December, 164 BCE. The Holy Temple was in shambles, defiled and desecrated by foreign soldiers. They cleansed the Temple and re-dedicated it on the 25th day of the Jewish month of Kislev. When it came time to re-light the Menorah, they searched the entire Temple, but only one small jar of oil bearing the pure seal of the High Priest could be found. Miraculously, the small jar of oil burned for eight days, until a new supply of oil could be brought.

From then on, Jews have observed a holiday for eight days in honor of this historic victory and the miracle of the oil.

Today, the observance of Chanukah features the lighting of a special Chanukah menorah with eight branches (plus a helper candle), adding one new candle each night. Other customs include spinning the dreidel (a top with Hebrew letters on the sides), eating "oily" foods like potato latkes (pancakes) and sufganiyot (jelly donuts), and giving Chanukah gelt (coins) to children.

 

 

Maoz Tsur A song about the Temple sung during Chanukah.

 

Maoz tzur yeshua-si - Lecha na-eh li-sha-beyach - Tikone bais ti-fee-las - Vi-sham todah ni-za-beyach. 

Li-ase ta-chin mat-beyach - Mee-tzar ham-na-beyach - Az eg-more vi-sheer meez-mor - Chanukas ha-meez-beyach

Az eg-more vi-sheer meez-mor - Chanukas ha-meez-beyach.

 

(Translation)

O Rock of my salvation, with delight we praise You. - Restore the Temple where we will bring offerings.

When You will eliminate our enemies, - Then I shall sing at the rededication.

 

The past is always catching up with the present. The Syrian Antiochus is a case in point.  Daniel the prophet foretold of his coming as the little horn of Daniel 8. Israel has experienced the animosity of similar little horn dictators over the years. Hitler in most recent history was consumed with the destruction of the Jews. Arafat is a living representative of another little horn filled with hate for Israel. Antiochus is most noteworthy for his desecration of the Second Temple. Another little horn is waiting in the wings (probably alive today). Daniel drifts between the two in his prophecy. The Anti-Christ will also desecrate another Jewish Temple yet to be built on the Temple Mount. His viciousness will make all the past little horns seem tame. The Jews will be singing this coming week "Restore the Temple" which God will do, but this restored Temple will bring with it the most vicious Jew hater of all time. It is all part of God's plan to redeem Israel, and bring in the millennium Jewish Kingdom of Jesus Christ. The Last Jihad of Ezekiel 38 & 39 is "when You will eliminate our enemies" of the Chanukah song at the beginning of the 7 year tribulation. The Jews will spend the first half of the 7 year tribulation building Ezekiel's Temple under the direction of the Two Witnesses of Revelation chapter 11 (my personal speculation). The last half of the 7 year tribulation is called "Jacob's Trouble" for good reason. It is when the Anti-Christ will have his way in the pleasant land.

Dan 8:9-14
9And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.

10And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them.

11Yea, 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.

12And 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.

13Then 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?

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

The Maccabees cleansed the Second Temple to which Christ came. Christ will come a Second time to another cleansed Third Jewish Temple. The spiritual Jews who fled into the wilderness at the death of the Two Witnesses will return to Jerusalem during the last days of the tribulation to prepare Ezekiel's Temple which they built for His return.

(07:45) Suicide bombing in Haifa, second bomb found
By The Jerusalem Post Internet Staff

A suicide bomber blew himself up a few minutes ago adjacent to a bus stop at the Checkpost Junction near Haifa. Thirty one people were hospitalized in the wake of the attack, according to a government statement.
Casualties have been admitted to Rambam, Carmel and Bnai Zion hospitals in Haifa according to Magen David Adom spokesmen.

Dr. Zvi Ben-Ishai, deputy director at Rambam hospital, said 11 wounded had been brought in, and "most of them were very slightly wounded by shrapnel." Two people also arrived at Ha'emek Hospital in Afula suffering from trauma. The bomber was killed in the blast.

Two police officers spotted the man, who aroused their suspicion, before the explosion.
They fired at the bomber before he detonated the nail and screw-studded device he was wearing.
It is unclear if they wounded the bomber before he detonated the bomb.

Northern District police chief Cmdr. Ya'acov Borovsky said the bomber intended to carry out the attack on a northbound bus. Borovsky said the bomber's identity was unknown.

Minutes after the blast, flames leaped from the body of the bomber lying on the street just in front of the bus stop, which was only slightly damaged. Firefighters, crouching behind a traffic barrier in the middle of the road, fearing additional blasts, aimed a fire hose at the burning body.

Sappers found and blew up a second belt-bomb in a controlled explosion at the scene of the attack. A third bomb was discovered a few minutes ago, according to Army Radio. It did not explode.
 

Another plan to kill Jews is thwarted. The Islamic, Arab, Palestinians are frustrated again as their best trained assassins stumble and fall in the execution of their vicious plans. All they can do now is have another great celebration of his death to convince the gullible that Allah is great. The Islamic religious leaders tell the crowds he will receive 70 sex kitten wives for his efforts to kill defenseless (even little babes and children) Jews.

The truth is his body burned in the street. I smelled burning flesh while in the Army many years ago. It is a putrid smell all it's own. I have never forgotten that smell that ties the stomach up in knots, and causes the nose to drip as it does it's best to wash out the stench. I could never celebrate as glorious such a foul smell going into the nostrils of any god.

The God of the Bible says the burning does not stop after death. The pain and torment of an eternal hell awaits all who would spit in the face of God. All who would spit at the only savior God sent to redeem a sin filled world. There is only one truth for the fate of this latest suicide bomber. It is either 70 sexual favors from Allah, or eternal condemnation from the God of the Bible. It does not take a lot of smarts to know which is true!

Luke 16:23
23And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
KJV

Luke 16:27-31
27Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:

28For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

29Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

30And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

31And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
KJV

Rev 14:10-11
10The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Survey finds 10 partners before marriage 'normal'

The majority of young people think it is normal for a person to have at least 10 sexual partners before marriage.

A survey has also found that three in 10 believe it is acceptable for a girl to lose her virginity before the age of 15.

Research carried out by Brook, the youth sex advisory service, says there is a "cultural change" in young people's attitudes towards sex.

Some 64% of men and 54% of women agreed that it was acceptable for a person to sleep with more than 10 partners before getting married.

I put little belief in statistical studies. The way the questions are asked actually determines the statistical results. It is just not as cut and dry as these manipulators of the studies would have us believe.

I doubt the culture has suddenly changed. I think it has been this way for a long time. Those who have no character will have 10 sexual partners, or really as many as they can find before marriage.  They also go on cheating in marriage because this is a character issue. The high rate of divorce signals it is true. It takes a pervert to desire, and actively pursue 15 year old children for sex. I'm sure the 15 year barrier is erroneous to these characterless perverts. In reality, they could care less what age their victims might be (or what sex for many).  They have no character. They have no concept or desire for Biblical morality. Character seeks out righteousness, and practices it resisting the temptations of the flesh. The perverts of this world justify to themselves what they do is what everybody (or most everybody) does. It is why the Islamic Clerics are able to manipulate young men with sexual promises in paradise from Allah. The promises are lies, but when applied to persons of no character they are believed. They are believed because it is what those with no character want to hear. Even religion noted for some sort of morality gets twisted into the lie of sexual perversion out of desire by the perverts.

I do not know if 64% of American young men, and 54% of American young women are sexual perverts waiting on some adult pervert to give a religious okey dokey to their behavior? I do know there are a lot of them. It is still not too late to turn from such evil ways. It is still not too late to turn to the Bible. It is still not too late to come to Christ for salvation and redemption. It is still not too late for American young people to maintain Biblical character!

Job 33:27-28
27He looketh upon men, and if any say, I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not;

28He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light.
KJV

Acts 13:10
10And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?
KJV

1 Tim 1:9-10
9Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,

10For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;
KJV

4Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

Rev 21:8
8But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

EUROPEAN SHIFT?
The European Union has stepped up its efforts to bring the two sides back to the negotiating table, as Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres and PA minister Saeb Erekat were both invited to attend a meeting of EU foreign ministers in Brussels today.

The EU, for the first time ever, was poised to declare that Hamas and Islamic Jihad are terrorist networks that must be dismantled by the PA. The ministers' statement to be issued today will demand that Arafat arrest and try all those connected to Hamas and Islamic Jihad. An appeal was also made for the PA-controlled Arabic language media to call for an end to armed violence against Israel.

The normally pro-Arab French Foreign Minister Hubert Vedrine said his fellow foreign ministers in the 15-nation European Union would call on Arafat "to dismantle terrorist organizations." However, Vedrine said the Europeans were not siding with Israel. The EU statement would also urge the Israeli government to halt military operations against the Palestinians in retaliation for bomb attacks.

Peres showed up in Brussels reportedly carrying a message that the time for "even-handedness" is over, and that the Europeans need to realize the PA is the party preventing any progress. He is expected to get a fair hearing, as the spate of terror bombings has drained away at the traditional EU sympathy for the PA. Yet some European officials are already buying the PA line that Israeli retaliatory raids against their police are hampering efforts to rein in the radicals.

EU foreign policy and security chief Javier Solana is due in Israel this evening to begin a shuttle mission aimed at reducing tensions. It seems the main EU goal right now is to help Arafat's regime survive the dual challenges from Israel and from rival Islamic groups. But Israeli officials have said that one of the reasons Arafat has not acted more decisively to battle terror is the feeling that no matter what he does, there will be no pressure to replace him.

In any event, he has yet to truly confront his chief adversaries in Hamas. PA sources say it is not worth it for Arafat to enter a confrontation with his own people, without ironclad guarantees that Israel will move forward with the political process. Instead, he appears to be trying to work out a deal with Hamas and other armed factions fueling the violence whereby they would agree to limit their attacks to certain types and areas.
 

 

BIN LADEN'S SONS WILL KILL HIM ON TV

 


 

Sons 'will shoot him to foil allies'

From Jeremy Armstrong In Kabul

 

OSAMA bin Laden plans a TV suicide that will trigger attacks on landmarks in London, Paris and the US.

His estranged wife Sabiha said last night he would order his elder sons to shoot him rather than be captured.

Does the leopard change his spots? I suspect the public change in attitude by the EU has more to do with the impending fate of bin Laden then any real change of heart. My personal feelings are that the EU is ready right now to follow the Anti-Christ when he makes his appearance. He will not be the fool that bin Laden and his disciples turned out to be. The Anti-Christ will make a peace treaty with Israel that he will break in just 3 1/2 years. He will have the political savvy to wait, and endure peace until by subtlety knows he can overcome the Jews.  I suspect the end of this "War on Terrorism" will result in a false peace where Israel will entrust their security to some kind of UN/EU peace assurance. Israel will thrive when relieved of the burden of protecting itself.  The hate we now know Islam has deep in it's heart against the Jews will erupt into invasion of a perceived weak Israel by a festering Moslem culture raw with animosity toward what happened to their martyrs. The hate of the EU will cause them to only watch making sure their hands are tied into inaction. This Last Jihad of Ezekiel 38 & 39 will be quick, and be the end of Islamic influence in the Middle East after God steps in. The humiliating defeat of Israel's enemies may well be the factor allowing the Anti-Christ to take full control of the West, and make that peace treaty with Israel starting the 7 years of tribulation? I expect to be taken (raptured) with the true Church before these events take place. I'll not have the opportunity to see my speculations become reality should I understand Ezekiel 38 & 39 correctly? The time is getting short! [Read: Invasion Israel]

The Apostate Church that will be left behind is here right now. Some of it believes in a generic god who will leave good Christians, good Moslems, good Jews, and good just about anyone into heaven. Most of it's faith is that you can lose God's promise of salvation in Christ if bad. It is the faith of apostasy, not faith in Christ! Many have added false mysticism to the gospel of Christ making it another gospel. A lot believe they will be the future glory of the earthly Jerusalem not the Jews. They all go through lip service motions, but will prove to be only professing Christians not the possessors of Christ. They will all be left behind.

2 Cor 11:3-4
3But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

4For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
KJV

Gal 1:6-9
6I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

7Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

8But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

9As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
KJV

Matt 7:22-23
22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity
KJV

Matt 24:38-44
38For 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,

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

40Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

41Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

42Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

43But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

44Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
KJV

A Hanukkah Fact:

(From the days of Antiochus a type for the Anti-Christ)

One of the central themes in the Chanukah story is the dedication and heroism of Jewish women.

The Greek rulers of Israel instituted a harsh decree:

All brides were required to sleep with a Greek military officer before they could marry their husbands.

This is not a myth or a fairy tale. These were young Jewish women who were as alive, intelligent and talented as any Jewish woman today. They were in love with their soon-to-be husbands and each had to submit herself to the lusts of a Greek soldier before she could marry. Defy the law, and she could be killed.

 

EU closing ranks with US
Analysis By Herb Keinon

(December 12) - The EU's call on Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat to dismantle the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorist networks, and to come out with a clear call in Arabic for an end to the "armed intifada," is the clearest signal yet of how fed up the world has become with Arafat.

For this is the EU, which feels very strongly the PA is an address and partner for peace, whose representatives regularly call for "proportionality" in Israeli responses to terrorism, and whose statesmen have hinted in the recent past terrorism against "occupation" is not the same as plain, old terrorism.

So for the foreign ministers of the EU to come out with this type of public chastisement of the PA - chastisement European officials claim they have been delivering to Arafat for months in private - is a clarion call and a significant signal.

"This shows a certain impatience with Arafat," one senior European diplomatic official said. "The feeling is that the situation is rotting away."
 

 

December 9 -- I wake up to the news of another suicide bomber in Haifa. I feel that my capacity to bear the pain of our losses is reaching its limit. I spent one day last week with Boris and Alla, whose pain is deeper than words express, and who suffer the unspoken fear of every parent.

Boris and Alla are the parents of Tanya Boravik who was killed on December 2 in Haifa by a mass murderer (suicide bomber sounds too romantic). Tanya was a talented photographer whose deep eyes betrayed her youth.

Tanya, 23, came to Israel in 1995 from the Ukraine as part of a program for high school students. She wrote home how wonderful life in Israel was, and her parents, brother and grandmother arrived a year later to settle in Israel.

At the cemetery, Tanya's father placed a large framed photograph on her grave. My eyes kept being drawn back to hers as the Deputy Defense Minister's words were drowned out by the torrential rains. The heavens are crying, someone whispered.

Speech after speech filled the air with words that found no hearts, because the sense of bewilderment was too profound.

Tanya had participated in the Aish Haifa community. She came for the holidays to be with other students and young families who appreciate the opportunity to build a Jewish community that spoke to their needs: immigrants still suffering the effects of Russia's 70-year campaign to destroy Jewish life.

For 70 years, Russian Jews were denied the right to know or practice Judaism. Study of Torah was seen as such a serious ideological threat, that even the teaching of Hebrew was punished by imprisonment, or worse. Rabbis and leaders were persecuted or killed; schools, synagogues, and all forms of Jewish community life were eliminated.

After the funeral, Tanya's father pleaded with me to stay. "Please understand. We are victims of the Soviet war on Judaism. I don't even know how to mourn as a Jew."

I had once attended a Soviet-style mourner's meal in Minsk, but to see it in Netanya was much more unsettling. It is painfully tragic that after 70 years of forced assimilation, we have brought Russian Jews home to Israel, but not yet home to their heritage.

My personal message to Tanya's family: And it shall come to pass in the day that the LORD shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve, - Isa. 14:3

It is no wonder the EU has momentarily come over to the Israel side. There was a moment at the end of World War Two when the Europeans were confronted with the horrors of the Holocaust, and allowed a dispersed surviving  Israel to return to their homeland. The issue right now is support for Israel's right to stay amid hostel Islamic neighbors?  A moment of compassion has again touched Europe. It would be wonderful if all the world would rejoice with Israel as God so clearly is preparing them for the future glory of Israel, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. The sad truth is this compassion is only for the moment. It is not lasting. The Bible says the Anti-Christ will find fertile soil in Europe to sow his hate for Jews. Ethnic cleansing will take on new meanings when the Anti-Christ gains control over the Holy Land.

Many Jews will be changed through tribulation! Neither secular Judaism, or the Phariscitical Judaism of today is God's plan. A return to Biblical Judaism is what He is about! A return to the Temple! God has compassion for the Jew. Not like the world. His compassion is forever. The great surgeon knows just how deep to  cut out that which defiles, but not so deep as to damage beyond healing. Through great tribulation will the hearts of the Jews be changed. It is God's plan we see coming to pass "in the news."

Jer 30:5-7
5For thus saith the LORD; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace.

6Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness?

7Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.
KJV

Ezek 7:5-9
5Thus saith the Lord GOD; An evil, an only evil, behold, is come.

6An end is come, the end is come: it watcheth for thee; behold, it is come.

7The morning is come unto thee, O thou that dwellest in the land: the time is come, the day of trouble is near, and not the sounding again of the mountains.

8Now will I shortly pour out my fury upon thee, and accomplish mine anger upon thee: and I will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense thee for all thine abominations.

9And mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: I will recompense thee according to thy ways and thine abominations that are in the midst of thee; and ye shall know that I am the LORD that smiteth.
KJV

Joel 2:11-13
11And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?

12Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:

13And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.
KJV

Joel 2:31-32
31The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.

Isa 14:1-3
14:1For the LORD will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob.

2And the people shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of the LORD for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors.

3And it shall come to pass in the day that the LORD shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve,
KJV

Jer 30:10-11
10Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the LORD; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid.

11For I am with thee, saith the LORD, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.
KJV

Rom 11:26-28
26And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

27For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

28As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes.

18:15) Terrorists attack bus in Samaria
By The Jerusalem Post Internet Staff

Palestinian terrorists attacked a crowded Dan public bus outside Emmanuel southwest of Nablus one minute before 6:00 p.m., killing eight people, according to the IDF Spokesman.

Terrorists attacked the bus and arriving rescue forces with a powerful roadside bomb, anti-tank grenades, and light arms fire.

Three passenger cars also came under fire, according to regional police commander Shahar Ayalon.

One or more gunmen continued to open fire on the No. 189 bus as rescue forces treat wounded at the scene, Army Radio reported.

IDF ground troops operating in the area killed at least one terrorist.

Reports indicate there are up to 30 casualties. A large number of Magen David Adom armored ambulances and medical teams arrived on the scene.

Five of the wounded were reported in very critical condition. Some casualties were evacuated to hospital and other wounded received treatment in the field.

Gush Katif attack survivor: 'A great miracle happened here'
By David Rudge

JERUSALEM (December 13) - A "Hanukka miracle" was how residents of Gush Katif described their escape either unhurt or with very light wounds from two suicide bombers and an explosive device at the main junction near the entrance to the region last night.

Four people were slightly wounded and were treated at the scene by Magen David Adom paramedics and then taken to Beersheba's Soroka Hospital.

The almost simultaneous attacks occurred at the Midrasha junction, only a few hundred meters from Ganei Tal and less than a kilometer from Neveh Dekalim.

There were four vehicles in the vicinity of the junction when a suicide bomber approached one of the cars and blew himself up.

The four occupants, Moshe Baraness, Moshe Manshari, and his 14-year-old son Ephraim and Menahem Bar-Yehuda, escaped with mainly abrasions, but also had to be treated for shock. The vehicle was wrecked by the blast.

David Banjo, 30, was in another car, having just stopped to give a lift to 22- year-old Liat Pinnes, another resident of the Gush Katif region.

"I was on my way to Ashkelon to pick up my wife and our two children who were at her parents' home to go on to Jerusalem to attend a wedding," said Banjo.

"We had just gotten to near the junction when I heard an explosion which I thought was another mortar exploding in the region, but which later turned out to be a roadside bomb.

"Then, suddenly, to my left, I saw a young man under 20 running towards the car. I tried to speed up to get away from him and then there was a mighty blast which blew out all the windows and almost knocked the steering wheel out of my hands.

"I couldn't see where I was going but I knew we had to get out of there as fast as possible. I stopped after about one kilometer away. We were covered in glass and the car was a wreck, but otherwise we were unhurt.

"There was another car in a similar state close to where I stopped, and I understood the occupants had also escaped with just light injuries. A great miracle happened here. That's all I can say," said Banjo.

(07:45) Israel: Arafat is no longer relevant
By The Jerusalem Post Internet Staff

The security cabinet decided overnight that Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat is "irrelevant" and ordered the IDF to target PA facilities and recapture territory in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Israel has cut all contacts with the PA and has no demands or expectations that the PA will act to foil terror attacks.

All contacts with PA security forces have also been abrogated.

The aims of the move were not to personally harm Arafat or bring about the PA's collapse, but rather to end Arafat's reign, ministers said at the conclusion of the cabinet session.

"Only Israel can provide for its own security and that is what we will do," Justice Minister Meir Sheetrit told Army Radio. "The cabinet instructed the IDF to act in any area where there is a terrorist infrastructure.
 

"Only Israel can provide for its own security and that is what we will do,"

A statement that I believe will come back to haunt a secular Israel as never being truly implemented. Were it true, Arafat would be dead, and the Palestinian Authority would be defunct. Secular Israel refuses to control the gentiles under their authority, and the Arab, Palestinians refuse to submit to any kind of Israeli authority.

Dear Christian, how would you like to have the responsibility of governing perfect justice under these conditions? Read: Mishpat for an answer to how the Law will be administered in the coming Jewish Kingdom.

Now add to the mix Two fanatical Jews with a following of 144,000 faithful Jewish celibate men representing the Twelve Tribes declaring a mandate from God to build Ezekiel's Temple? The world would go crazy. The secular Jews would go crazy. These crazy causing fanatics will put their trust in the God of the Bible for their security. God will again prove more then adequate. Their mandate will be realized in just 3 1/2years! Never will have a Jewish Temple been built under greater animosity. Never will anger reach such heights against these fanatics who clearly thwart every attempt to stop them.  "A great miracle happened here. That's all I can say," When the 3 1/2 years are finished, the Anti-Christ will be allowed to kill the two leading fanatics bringing about a world wide celebration. A new world holiday is established. A holiday of joy that these Two Jewish Biblical Fundamentalists have been overcome. None will celebrate more then secular Jews and secular Judaism. None will the world turn upon with more vicious hate then those same Jews. God will continue taking care of the 144,000 spiritual Biblical Jews, and their disciples as they flee into the wilderness. The secular Jews will suffer as the Anti-Christ takes control of Israel, Jerusalem, and Ezekiel's Temple. The secular Jews who thought they could compromise with this fiend whom they supported will be sadly dismayed as the days of "Jacob's Trouble" come.

It's all in the Bible for those who care to read!

Rev 11:1-14
11:1And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
3And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
4These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
5And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
6These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
7And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
8And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
9And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
10And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
11And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
12And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
13And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
14The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.
KJV

Rev 7:4
4And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
KJV

Rev 14:3-5
3And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.

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

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

Rev 12:14-17
14And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

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

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

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

By Philip Pullella

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope John Paul on Friday led the world's Roman Catholics in a day of fasting for global peace in solidarity with Muslims in the wake of attacks against the United States and spiraling violence in the Middle East.

The Pope, convinced that prayer can move minds and mountains, asked Catholics to skip at least one meal if their health permitted it and to give to charity the money they would have spent.

The unprecedented gesture was timed to coincide with the end of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, promote greater understanding between Catholics and Muslims, and stress that no Catholic should automatically link Islam with terrorism.

The Vatican asked Catholics to either abstain from all food from sunrise to sunset, as devout Muslims do, take just bread and water, or eat the minimum required for their health.

"This special day of prayer and fasting, a Friday at the end of Ramadan, gives Catholics a chance to show their solidarity with Muslims," said Archbishop Michael Fitzgerald, secretary of the Vatican Council for Inter-religious Dialogue. ....

The Pope's appeal to fast was taken up by some non-Catholics, but resulted in religious indigestion for members of the anti-immigrant Northern League party, which criticized the initiative.

Three League parliamentarians said in a statement that they refused to fast at the same time as "atheists and members of other religions that do not believe in the Holy Trinity."

The parliamentarians, Alessandro Ce, Federico Bricolo and Massimo Polledri, slammed the Pope's fasting initiative as "inter-religious, political, lay and ecumenical."

The trio blasted Fausto Bertinotti, a Marxist who is head of Italy's far-left Communist Refoundation Party, for participating even though he and many members of his party were atheist.

"We, who are not believers, feel taken up by this hope for peace, this encounter of women and men of different faiths who are committed to peace and the possibility of a different world," Bertinotti said.

Italian Protestants were also taking part in the fast, as were many environmental and green groups.

 

Why prayer and fasting? Because they can't unify around a generic god. It would offend the atheists among them. They can't unite around the Bible because doctrine would rip them apart by accusation. They can't unite around Christ because the Moslems want Mohamed instead. All that is left is some undefined, unintelligible,  misty prayer and fasting which can't offend anyone (so they thought). Some of the Pope's own children opened their eyes and blurted out about this inter-religious group "atheists and members of other religions that do not believe in the Holy Trinity."   Oh! Shush little children says the Pope. That is doctrine. That is Bible. That is Christ. We can't have peace with any of that!

The fast is important because it appeals to the masses as having put the god of the mists in an obligatory situation. The Bible calls this "works" which the God of the Bible says will never influence Him. He has pre-judged all the "works" of man as nothing but filthy rags.

The truth is the Pope's peace plan for the Middle East is filthy rags! Guess where God places the secular peace plans?

Isa 64:6
6But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
KJV

Isa 57:12
12I will declare thy righteousness, and thy works; for they shall not profit thee.
KJV

Zech 3:3-4
3Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel.

4And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment.
KJV

Phil 3:8-10
8Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,

9And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

10That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
KJV

Rev 3:17-20
17Because 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:

18I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

20Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door,         I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
KJV

Rev 7:13-17
13And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?

14And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

15Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.

16They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.

17For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
KJV

SAY WHAT? PART DEUX ... Rep. Gary Condit on the quality of his character: "I've been married 34 years. I don't drink, don't smoke, don't party." No, he just covers up affairs with missing interns.

SAY WHAT? ... Sen. Hillary Clinton on human cloning: "I'm afraid they'll clone Strom Thurmond and he'll be around forever." Yeah, she's a real class act. Anyone think the people of New York will be electing her to the Senate when she's 99? How about when she's 59?

(15:45) IDF anti-terror sweep biggest ever
The IDF operation last night in four Palestinian areas was the biggest so far in the war against terrorism, said OC Judea and Samaria Brig.-Gen. Gershon Yitzhak.

OC Central Command Maj.-Gen. Yitzhak Eitan was quoted by Israel Radio as saying the Palestinian Authority did nothing to prevent the devastating terrorist attacks this week, and anything it does is mere pretense for the benefit of US envoy Anthony Zinni.

IDF units killed at least five Palestinians, one of them a wanted terrorist and the rest members of the PA security forces, without IDF casualties. The IDF Spokesman said the units operated in four PA-controlled areas and arrested more than 50 Palestinians, some of them wanted suspects.

In the Mount Hebron area, troops arrested a suspect wanted for planting a roadside bomb that exploded near the convoy of IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Shaul Mofaz several weeks ago.

The Palestinians received advance notification of the operation in an effort to avoid civilian casualties, the IDF Spokesman said.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if American politics were "it's character stupid." Character has proved itself again in the present crisis, but memory is short. The Clintons seem to have cloned a Condit with no help at all. Another Mr. Slick seems ready to go on to bigger and higher things by putting a righteous spin on his good works? Gullibility is not limited to the Islamic masses who accept terrorism preached by their clerics.

Israel is now taking action after the terrorists  targeted too many children and teens. The compassion of the world seems to finally be effected. Arafat had 30,000 policeman, and years to accomplish a roundup. His credibility has finally been exposed.

Read Lesson #9 of the Ezekiel Bible Study - Ezekiel was also the victim of the "contradictory lie,"

Rev 21:8
8But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
KJV

Deut 33:29
29Happy art thou, O Israel: who is like unto thee, O people saved by the LORD, the shield of thy help, and who is the sword of thy excellency! and thine enemies shall be found liars unto thee; and thou shalt tread upon their high places
KJV

1 Tim 1:10
10For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;
KJV

Rev 2:2-3
2I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:

3And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
KJV

(08:55) Hanukka, Christmas, Ramadan converge ... uneasily
By Greg Myre, The Associated Press

BETHLEHEM - Here's how you know the holiday season in the Holy Land is in full swing:

Santa Claus has just finished his television broadcast with an Arabic rendition of "Jingle Bells" in the studios of Nativity TV, a Christian station broadcasting from a hilltop villa in Bethlehem.

As Santa leaves, he greets the next man on the air, Sheik Abdul Majid Atta, a local leader of the militant Islamic movement Hamas, who dispenses an hour of religious advice to callers each afternoon during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

The sheik, whose flowing beard puts Santa's to shame, invites the actor dressed as Santa, Khalid Massou, to perform at a nearby Palestinian refugee camp.

"We are living in very difficult times," said Massou.

"I want to do whatever I can to help the children celebrate the holidays."

The biggest Muslim holiday, Eid al-Fitr, begins this weekend as Ramadan ends, joining Christmas and the Jewish holiday of Hanukka as all three religions hold major celebrations this month amid the ongoing Mideast crisis.

The overlapping holidays offer a small measure of relief from the constant tensions and bring renewed calls for a more peaceful future.

Yet while all three religions have roots here, interaction between the spiritual leaders of different faiths is limited, and the conflict is casting a heavy shadow over the holiday season for the second straight year.

Just two years ago, Bethlehem's Christmas Eve party packed Manger Square and pointed to prosperous future filled with an unending stream of foreign tourists.

Today, there's plenty of room at the inn. In fact, many hotels have closed for a lack of business. Israeli forces entered Bethlehem for 10 days in October in pursuit of Palestinian militants, and Israeli fire turned the once-popular Paradise Hotel into a blackened shell.
 

Oh! little town of Bethlehem right in the middle of all these man made religions. They all try to use the Bible as they try to use the God of the Bible for their own prideful ends. The great apostate Christian Church with it's greedy fingers into everything. The infidel and blasphemous Moslem religion master of lies. The secularized and false Judaism of the Pharisees who's leaven has corrupted all it touches.  They would turn to Santa rather then Christ the Messiah for peace. A secular peace that will never, never come! Yes, a false Santa peace will come, but it will only bring with it Armageddon which is no peace at all. There is only one peace the Bible reveals as lasting. A peace based on virtue not pride. A peace that will wipe away all man made big time religions. A peace for the humble rolled over by the big religions of today, for the poor, for those who seek God's righteousness, and reject the false religions of man. A peace grounded in a person not a religion. A peace of the soon coming King of Kings born in that same little town of Bethlehem! A Savior who promised He is coming again to establish His Kingdom not another religion!

Isa 9:6-7
6For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

7Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
KJV
 

Matt 5:3-12
3Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

5Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

6Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

7Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

8Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

9Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

10Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

12Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

(14:55) Arafat: Palestinian flag will fly on Temple Mount

Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat said the Palestinian flag would yet fly from the mosques on the Temple Mount.

"No one will succeed in removing us from our land, including Jerusalem, and the Palestinian flag will fly from the Temple Mount and from the churches of Jerusalem."

Arafat made the statements at the conclusion of Eid el-Fitr prayers in Ramallah earlier today.

Ps 2:1-9
2:1Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

2The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

3Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

4He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

5Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

6Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

7I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

8Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

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

European Union sets course towards new era
By Peter Norman in Brussels
Published: December 16 2001 22:29 | Last Updated: December 16 2001 22:33
 

The European Union opened a new chapter in its history with a decision at the weekend to create a special convention that could lead to a constitution in 2004.

In a far-reaching declaration on the future of Europe, EU leaders set out their aim of bridging the gap between the EU and its citizens, calling on the union to become more democratic, transparent and efficient.

At its summit in the Belgian town of Laeken, 15 governments of all political hues, agreed that the EU "stands at a crossroads, a defining moment in its existence". Guy Verhofstadt, Belgian prime minister and summit host, said the declaration aimed to start a debate on Europe "with no taboos".

About 100 people will meet from next March in the convention chaired by Valery Giscard d'Estaing, former French president. They will consider about 50 questions on how to improve the EU's institutions and working methods in readiness for its enlargement from 15 to more than 25 member states.

 

 Many Bible scholars including me expect the Anti-Christ to emerge from some sort of European Union. This present 15 member states soon to be 25 member states is not a good prospect. The Bible says the Anti-Christ comes out of a 10 nation Western confederacy of which he leads one. The Bible says 3 fall (absorbed by the Anti-Christ) leaving 7 which becomes the base of his power over the whole world. My thoughts are the United States will be part of this future Western confederacy which the Anti-Christ will make his power base. The Bible goes on to tell us the Anti-Christ losses in the end. The Lord Jesus Christ destroys him, and establishes the Kingdom of heaven which John the Baptist claimed was at hand when Christ came to earth the first time. It will become reality after the Anti-Christ meets his end at the second coming of Christ!

Van Impe has really gotten screwy over this part of prophecy. He committed himself to this present EU counting as it grew. When it hit 10 he was ecstatic. When it hit 11, he started stepping all over his tongue. Much like the Jehovah Witnesses who claimed once their numbers hit 144,000 the end would come! When they hit 144,001, they also started stepping all over their tongue.  Van Impe claims some screwy revelation that the prophecy came to pass at 10? All the rest don't count anymore? Well, you can't expect much from a turncoat like Van Impe who left his fundamental roots for Neo-Evangelical money and fame. Those folks will swallow anything!

I'm still waiting in anticipation. I believe the Anti-Christ is alive today waiting in the wings of world politics for his opportunity to emerge. I don't believe Van Impe who has shamed himself in his latter years. Solomon is not a good roll model for old men!

Dan 7:7-28
7After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.
8I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
9I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.
10A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.
11I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.
12As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.
13I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.
14And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
15I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me.
16I came near unto one of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things.
17These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.
18But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.
19Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;
20And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.
21I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;
22Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.
23Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.
24And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.
25And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
26But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.
27And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.
28Hitherto is the end of the matter. As for me Daniel, my cogitations much troubled me, and my countenance changed in me: but I kept the matter in my heart.

(13:15) Saddam: Hold Arab summit on Palestinians in Mecca
By Sameer N. Yacoub, The Associated Press

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraqi President Saddam Hussein today called for an emergency Arab summit to be held at Islam's holiest city - Mecca, Saudi Arabia - to discuss Israeli attacks on Palestinians.

Saddam called for Arab unity and warned the United States and Israel are using the Sept. 11 attacks on New York and Washington as a pretext to destroy Arabs.

"America is encourging the Zionist entity to kill the Arabs," he said in a call to Arab governments and people carried by the Iraqi News Agency. "The United States and the Zionist entity have one common goal, that is to destroy and humiliate the Arab nation."

"Our position will be better if we are to hold an emergency summit ... in order to exclusively discuss the aggression toward the Palestinians," he was quoted as saying.

The 22-nation Arab League, based in Cairo, Egypt, has held several meetings in the past 14 months to discuss the Israeli-Palestinian crisis. Though there is broad support for the Palestinian cause and condemnation of Israel, little coordinated action has resulted.

"Let the meeting place be the honorable Kaaba," Saddam said, referring to the cubic stone structure in the Grand Mosque at the holy city of Mecca. He also said such a meeting could be held in "any Arab capital whose selection secures the presence of all us."

Saudi Arabia severed relations with Iraq after it invaded Kuwait in 1990. The kingdom allowed US troops to use Saudi territory to fight Iraqi forces in the 1991 Gulf War that ousted the Iraqis from Kuwait. In the years since, US planes frequently have flown from Saudi bases to patrol Iraqi skies and bomb targets in southern Iraq.

Saudi Arabia, custodian of the holiest shrines in Islam, allows Iraqis into the country only to participate in the annual Muslim pilgrimage, the hajj.
 

The highpoint of contradiction is to turn the tables on your adversary. Accuse them of the very infraction you are guilty. It works because it is what many want to hear. They have no concern for truth, but demand a plausible lie no matter how untruthful. The indiscriminant murder of civilians, and purposeful targeting of children and teens is turned toward Israel's military targeting in it's War on Terrorism as being of their sort. "America is encourging the Zionist entity to kill the Arabs," They are desperate to pull all Arabs into their filthy lies of deceit. They are willing to sacrifice the entire Arab culture in their blood thirst for Jewish blood. They have appealed to the right group. The hate for Jews is great. The desire to massacre Jews is ripe.  They are saying what most Islamic Arabs of the Middle East want to hear. This summit by Saddam will probably never take place, but the attitude is real.

The sad truth for the Arabs, and the rest of the world is that no matter how bad the Jews may be, they are still the chosen people. God has a way of looking through all the bad to see a future cleansed heart glory. There is a future glory coming to Israel, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. It is a Jewish glory centered in a Jewish King and Kingdom. A Kingdom for the humble. A Kingdom for the meek of this world. All big time religion must step aside for the future glory of Israel. All the gentile nations must step aside for the future glory of the Kingdom of heaven, the Kingdom of God. The contradictory lie will not work when Christ comes again. All those who want to hear it will be cast out of His future glorious Jewish kingdom. They will find their fate in an eternal hell!

2 Kings 21:8
8Neither will I make the feet of Israel move any more out of the land which I gave their fathers; only if they will observe to do according to all that I have commanded them, and according to all the law that my servant Moses commanded them.
KJV

Ps 119:172-176
172My tongue shall speak of thy word: for all thy commandments are righteousness.

173Let thine hand help me; for I have chosen thy precepts.

174I have longed for thy salvation, O LORD; and thy law is my delight.

175Let my soul live, and it shall praise thee; and let thy judgments help me.

176I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments.
KJV

Isa 41:8-11
8But thou, Israel, art my servant,
Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.

9Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant;
I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away.

10Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

11Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.
KJV

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

Luke 13:27-30
27But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are;
depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.

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

29And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in
the kingdom of God.

30And, behold, there are
last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.

Arafat Calls for More Martyrs

Only two days after a speech in which he allegedly called for an end to terrorism against Israel, PLO leader Yasser Arafat encouraged the opposite to a crowd in Ramallah yesterday. "All the Palestinians are martyrs," he cried, "and are all Muhammad al-Dura!" Al-Dura was a 12-year-old boy whose death in the early days of the Oslo War became a symbol for the Palestinians, who claimed that he was killed by Israeli cross-fire; some evidence clearly showed, however, that he was in fact killed by Arab shots. Arafat also said, "This brave people will continue to protect and defend our holy land with its blood and soul, and all its property. This is consecrated land, now and forever, from the cradle to the grave... With the help of God we will meet next time in Jerusalem, because we are fighting in order to bring the victory to our prophets, every baby, every child, every man, every woman, and every elder person, and all the youth - we will sacrifice ourselves for our holy places, and we will establish our dominion over them. We are prepared to give 70 of our martyrs for every martyr of theirs in this campaign..."
 

With the help of God we will meet next time in Jerusalem, !This helper God/god is not the God of the Bible for the only real God has already revealed His future plan for Jerusalem, and it does not include Yasser Arafat or the gentile Islamic Arab interlopers living in Israel!

Isa 52:1-10
52:1Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall
no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean.
2Shake thyself from the dust; arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem: loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion.
3For thus saith the LORD, Ye have sold yourselves for nought; and ye shall be redeemed without money.
4For thus saith the Lord GOD, My people went down
aforetime into Egypt to sojourn there; and the Assyrian oppressed them without cause.
5Now therefore, what have I here, saith the LORD, that my people is taken away for nought? they that rule over them make them to howl, saith the LORD; and my name continually every day is blasphemed.
6Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I.
7How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!
8Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the LORD shall bring again Zion.
9Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem: for the LORD hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem.
10The LORD hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.
KJV

Isa 66:19-22
19And I will set a sign
among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles.

20And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the LORD out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the LORD, as the
children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the LORD.

21And I will also take of them for priests and for Levites, saith the LORD.

22For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall
your seed and your name remain.
KJV

Jer 33:15-18
15In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto
David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land.

16In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness.

17For thus saith the LORD;
David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel;

18Neither shall the priests the Levites want a man before me to offer burnt offerings, and to kindle meat offerings, and to do sacrifice continually.
KJV

Ezek 36:35-38
35And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited.

36Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it.

37Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will yet for this be inquired of by the
house of Israel, to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock.

38As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men: and they shall know that I am the LORD.
KJV

Joel 2:32
32And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the
remnant whom the LORD shall call.
KJV

Joel 3:16-17
16The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of
his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.

17So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall
no strangers pass through her any more.
KJV

Mic 4:7-8
7And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever.

8And thou, O tower of the flock, the strong hold of the daughter of Zion, unto thee shall it come, even the first dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem.
KJV

Zeph 3:14-17
14Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout,
O Israel; be glad and rejoice with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem.

15The LORD hath taken away thy judgments, he hath cast out thine enemy: the
king of Israel, even the LORD, is in the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more.

16In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack.

17The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.
KJV

Zech 1:14-17
14So the angel that communed with me said unto me, Cry thou, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy.

15And
I am very sore displeased with the heathen that are at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction.

16Therefore thus saith the LORD; I am returned to Jerusalem with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the LORD of hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem.

17Cry yet, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; My cities through prosperity shall yet be spread abroad; and the LORD shall yet comfort Zion, and shall yet choose Jerusalem.
KJV

Zech 3:2
2And the LORD said unto Satan, The LORD rebuke thee, O Satan; even the LORD that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?
KJV

Zech 8:3-6
3Thus saith the LORD; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the LORD of hosts the holy mountain.

4Thus saith the LORD of hosts; There shall yet old men and old women dwell in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man with his staff in his hand for very age.

5And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in the streets thereof.

6Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If it be marvellous in the eyes of the
remnant of this people in these days, should it also be marvellous in mine eyes? saith the LORD of hosts.
KJV

Zech 9:9
9Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.
KJV

Zech 12:3-11
3And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
4In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.
5And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the LORD of hosts their God.
6In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.
7The LORD also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the
house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah.
8In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the
house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.
9And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
10And I will pour upon the
house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
11In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.

No Moslem prophets! No Islamic Arabs! No Yasser Arafat's concept of a Palestinian holy land! Only the God of the Bible's displeasure with the heathen!

French envoy to UK: Israel threatens world peace
By Douglas Davis

LONDON (December 20) - The diplomatic career of French Ambassador to Britain Daniel Bernard was said to be in jeopardy yesterday, after he was quoted as having referred to Israel as "that shitty little country" which threatens world peace.
 

It could be just the ravings of some drunken blue nose at a society party, or it could be revealing the heart attitude of many chiefs of State blurted out in a moment of unguarded truthfulness? What is said of Israel may well be what is said of Christ, and His coming Kingdom which will threaten secular peace far more then the Nation Israel ever could. The truth is this attitude, this Christmas, is reflective of why the LORD of hosts is preparing to deal with judgment on a world that mocks His chosen nation, and more importantly His only begotten son!

God demands the peace of Christ as the only acceptable peace for His creation. All other peace initiatives are but the filth of sin which will only lead to the Anti-Christ and Armageddon. The Apostle Paul well knew the magnificent Christ when he made comparison to all earthly glory.

Phil 3:8
8Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,

Islamists overplay their hand but London salons don't see it
By Barbara Amiel

LONDON (December 21) - In a column in last week's Spectator, Petronella Wyatt noted that "since September 11, anti-Semitism and its open expression has become respectable at London dinner tables."

This is an accurate observation and cannot be avoided by simply staying at home.

Recently, the ambassador of a major EU country politely told a gathering at my home that the current troubles in the world were all because of "that shitty little country Israel."

"Why," he asked, "should the world be in danger of World War Three because of those people?"

At a private lunch last month, the hostess - doyenne of London's political salon scene- made a remark to the effect that she couldn't stand Jews, and everything happening to them was their own fault.

When this was greeted with a shocked silence, she chided her guests on what she assumed was their hypocrisy. "Oh, come on," she said, "you all feel like that."

Once, that remark would have cost her license as a serious political hostess, but clearly she believes the zeitgeist is blowing her way.

Moslems Continue Attempts To De-Judaize Temple Mount

The Moslem Waqf renewed its illegal construction works on the Temple Mount this week in a major way. Trucks brought in the materials, earth was moved from the eastern part of the Mount to the northern part, and tiling of a section on the northern part is beginning. The Committee for the Prevention of the Destruction of Temple Mount Antiquities says it has aerial photos from yesterday documenting the progress of the work.

The Committee says the police fabricated a report this week to the effect that the arriving truckloads were for the purpose of repairing an area damaged by a burst pipe. The Committee members met with President Moshe Katzav yesterday, who told them that he is very concerned about the building on the Mount, but that the police tell him that no new works are underway at the holy site. Attorney-General Elyakim Rubenstein also received information from the Committee, and asked the police for explanations.

In addition, the Committee published a sharp proclamation against Prime Minister Sharon this week, explaining that the Waqf's cleaning of the holy site's underground caverns continues, with the purpose of filling them with "holy water" from Mecca. This will upgrade the status of the Temple Mount in Moslem eyes, giving it a "sanctity" almost as great as that of Mecca. The Prime Minister continues to ignore these facts, states the Committee. Signatories to the proclamation include former Supreme Court Chief Justices Meir Shamgar and Moshe Landau, ex-State Controller Miriam Ben-Porat, former Chief of Staff Dan Shomron, and ex-Mossad chief Yitzchak Hofi.
 

My thoughts are the battle for the Temple Mount is the most important battle of this Second return of the Jews to the Holy Land. It is the battle of present secular convenience over future spiritual glory as promised in the Bible. My thoughts are this will be a secular victory until the Two Witnesses of Revelation chapter 11 put a new spiritual fervor into Jewish culture.  My thoughts are as long as there is an Islamic influence in the Middle East a Jewish Third Temple can never be built. Ezekiel 38 & 39 is a good explanation of how God will negate Islam as a factor if in fact this is the "Last Jihad" that a present day literal interpretation would render. My thoughts are God will rapture (call up to heaven) the true Church leaving behind most of main stream Christianity which is already apostate. The Two Witnesses supported by 144,000 celibate chosen male  Jews representing the 12 Tribes of Israel will proclaim a mandate from God to build Ezekiel's Temple on the Temple Mount. This would certainly boil the passions of Islam to invade. It will be quick and decisive making the one sided Desert Storm invasion seem as nothing.  In this case it will be the invaders who will be vanquished. It will be an act of God! Islamic influence over the Middle East will end, and this new spiritual movement among the Jews will be free to build Ezekiel's Temple.

The Anti-Christ will make his appearance at this time as leader of the Western World confederacy including America, and it's powerful apostate Christianity. He will wisely sign a peace treaty with Israel contemplating what God had just done to Islam. The peace will only last 3 1/2 years when the Anti-Christ will by subtlety invade the Middle East, sit on the throne prepared for Christ in Ezekiel's Temple, and declare himself god!

Those are my thoughts as we approach Christmas 2001? Only Christ and His coming Jewish Kingdom will save the world from the downward spiral of the Anti-Christ to Armageddon. Only Christ has the power to save the individual lost sinner just as He will manifest the power to save the whole world from the fruits of sin. Only those who will come to Christ the King will find redemption in the future glory of Israel. The rest will be cast out unto eternal damnation.

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

Click here for Sunday animation - Arafatmas the delusion

Oh little town of Bethlehem!

Each Christmas Eve since the PLO takeover in Bethlehem on December 22, 1995, the Muslim Arafat has attended the televised Midnight mass in the church marking the site of Jesus' birth. The mass is presided over by the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, Michel Sabbah, a proponent of Palestinian nationalism.

Last year, Arafat showed up for the event three months into the violent Palestinian intifada, and was forced to leave by car through Jerusalem due to stormy weather, which had grounded his helicopter. Though it took place in deserted streets late on a rainy night, it marked Arafat's first foray in decades into Jerusalem - a city he has vowed to return to at the head of a triumphal Palestinian and Muslim march of "liberation."

This year, Arafat has been grounded not by the weather, but by the IDF. He has been confined to Ramallah for the past three weeks, ever since Israel destroyed his three helicopters parked outside his main compound in Gaza City. The air strikes came during a series of Israeli military operations launched in response to a horrific week of Palestinian terrorist attacks that killed 33 Israelis and wounded over 300. Arafat has been unable to leave Ramallah by land or air, and IDF tanks have been posted within 200-300 meters of his offices there.

Angered by his confinement to Ramallah, Arafat was quoted as telling his advisors this week, "I will get to Bethlehem, if I have to walk the whole way."
 

Ever since the PLO takeover the Christians of Bethlehem have been continually intimidated. Most have now left under threat of their lives by the Islamic, Arab, Palestinians. Don't be fooled by the Christianity of the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, Michel Sabbah. He may well hate Jews even more then Yasser Arafat? He certainly would rather have an Islamic Bethlehem/Jerusalem over a Jewish Bethlehem/Jerusalem.

Yasser Arafat has the delusional dream he will lead a victorious Islamic army of the people into Jerusalem. It is all his hopes in Allah that he will be victorious not only over the Jews, but over the Christians and their Christ. It certainly is delusional to think that Christmas would be changed to Arafatmas!

The Bible says it just is not going to happen!

Isa 9:6-7
6For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

7Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
KJV

Arafat misleads the world about his relationship to terror organizations.
Arafat’s message in English to Bush: Terror organizations outlawed.
Arafat’s message to Palestinians: The PA and the terror organizations are united.
 

Written by Itamar Marcus and Ruthie Blum
 

Background:
The Palestinian Authority continues to mock the United States and Israel, sending well publicized promises to President Bush and Prime Minister Sharon that it is outlawing terrorist organizations, while sending strong messages of solidarity with the terrorists to the Palestinians. In public displays of adherence to American pressure, the Palestinian Authority declared Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine illegal organizations. Television crews were even invited to film the closing of the organizations’ offices.

However, yesterday the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine held a ceremony in honor of its 34th anniversary. Not only did the PA permit the celebration of the “outlawed” organization, but Yasser Arafat sent his Cabinet Secretary to deliver a speech in his name, praising the terrorist organization and lauding the unity of “all [Palestinian] factions”. A representative of Hamas also attended.
Furthermore, to guarantee that the message of unity reach a wider audience, today’s official Palestinian Authority daily published a lengthy front-page article covering the ceremony in great detail. The article included a photo of  PA Cabinet Secretary Ahmed Abed Al-Rahman speaking at the event, during which Arafat’s delegate expressed disdain for the US and Israel, and claimed that the “[international arena... is being handled] with wisdom and caution, in order to foil the conspiracy of Sharon and his American allies…”
 

The sucker punch works because the guard is let down believing the lie that the opponent has submitted. Arafat has perfected the Islamic version of the sucker punch. As long as there are saps, the sucker punch works.

God has many attributes, but being a sap is not one of them. Many make profession of being a Christian. Many even claim they are "born again." God is not a sap! He sees their works, and knows their hearts. He knows which works are from a changed heart that has repented of sin coming to Christ, and which works are for selfish hopes of gain using Christ and God for personal ends. God will not be suckered by the phony Christians of today's apostate Church. They may well fool themselves, but they will never fool God!

Matt 7:22-23
22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
KJV

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

Ps 101:4
4A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person.
KJV

Jer 32:40
40And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me.

(22:20) Peres protests Iranian threat to destroy Israel
By Jack Katzenell, The Associated Press

JERUSALEM – Foreign Minister Shimon Peres protested to the international community today over an implied Iranian threat to destroy Israel with a nuclear bomb.

In a speech to mark Iran's "Jerusalem Day" on December 14, former President Hashemi Rafsanjani said the establishment of Israel was "the most hideous historic occurrence in history," and the Islamic world "will vomit her out from its midst," according to Peres's letter.

Rafsanjani told a crowd at the stadium in Teheran University that the day is approaching in which the Islamic world will possess atomic weapons.

"On that day, the strategy of the West will hit a dead end, since a single atomic bomb has the power to completely destroy Israel, while an Israeli counterstrike can only cause partial damage to the Islamic world," he said.

An Israeli expert who monitors developments in Iran said he had a tape recording of the speech, and the quotes listed in Peres's letter were accurate.
 

The Bible says the Islamic Iranians will not have their way with Israel. It is true in time they should develop their nuclear hate bombs. It also must be true the time is short for God to act on behalf of Israel. The end will not be a nuclear wasteland around Tell Aviv, but  rather an Islamic massacre on the mountains of Israel. A massacre preformed by the God of the Bible in the name of the God of the Bible.

The hate expressed by President Hashemi Rafsanjani is real enough. Were God not to intervene, the end would certainly come for Israel. If not the Moslems, it would be the Catholics who would never stand for God to lift Israel up over the Roman Catholic Church for the rest of eternity! God will act on behalf of His chosen people. In His name the great massacre of Ezekiel 39 will be accomplished. Those who are the expressed enemies of Israel will find the LORD of hosts their battle foe. His attribute is victory in battle. He can do no other thing.

Ezek 38:4-5
4And 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

Ezek 38:16
16And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
KJV

Ezek 38:18-19
18And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face.

19For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;
KJV

Ezek 38:23
23Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.
KJV

Ezek 39:2-4
2And 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:

3And 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.
KJV

Ezek 39:6-7
6And 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.

7So 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.
KJV

Ezek 39:13
13Yea, 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.
KJV

Ezek 39:21-29
21And 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.

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

23And 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.

24According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.

25Therefore 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;

26After 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.

27When 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;

28Then 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.

29Neither 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.

No War in God's Name, Pope Christmas Message Says

By Philip Pullella

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope John Paul, in his Christmas message to the world, said on Tuesday God's name could never be used to condone violence and urged that children be saved from the cruel effects of adult conflicts.

In his ``Urbi et Orbi'' (to the city and the world) message the Pope also said he was ``bearing in my heart'' the tragedy of the Holy Land and of those who are dying of hunger.

Leading the 24th Christmas season of his history-making pontificate, he urged all people to ``open your hearts to the message of peace.''

Speaking to the world on a throne from the central balcony of St. Peter's Basilica, he made a ringing appeal for social and economic justice and wove his message around the image of the baby Jesus.

``In him we can recognize the face of every child who is born, of whatever race or nation: the little Palestinian and the little Israeli; the little American and the little Afghan; the child of the Hutu and the child of the Tutsi...,'' he said.

``Today my thoughts go to all the children of the world: so many, too many are the children condemned from birth to suffer through no fault of their own the effects of cruel conflicts,'' he said in a trembling voice and sounding weaker than he did at midnight mass.

Aware that the world was still coming to grips with the effects of the September 11 attacks on the United States, the Pope again strongly rejected the concept of a holy war.

NO VIOLENCE IN GOD'S NAME

``May God's holy name never be used as a justification for hatred! Let it never be used as an excuse for intolerance and violence!'' he said. ``May the gentle face of the Child of Bethlehem remind everyone that we all have one Father.''

The Pope is dead wrong. His Christmas message is dead wrong. The violence that would be perpetrated against Israel will find a jealous God moved to action. Violence in battle is the LORD of hosts battle cry against all who oppose Israel's return to the Promised Land! To all who oppose the future glory of Israel!

Bin Laden: Attack on US to Stop Support for Israel

LONDON (Reuters) - Osama bin Laden (news - web sites), the world's most wanted man, said on a video broadcast by al-Jazeera satellite television on Wednesday that the September 11 suicide attacks were intended to stop U.S. support for Israel.

``Our terrorism against the United States is worthy of praise to deter the oppressor so that America stop its support for Israel, which is killing our children,'' the bearded, Saudi-born fugitive said.

Now it is clear if it was not before. The price of September 11 is because of our support for Israel. What bin Laden hopes is that America will say the price  for the Jews is not worth it. My hopes are America will realize the plan God has for the future glory of Israel, and the Jews. The price is high, as high as any price can be, but God has blessed America because of it's past support for the price Christ of the Bible paid. The same God will also bless those who support His future plan for the glory of Christ as the soon coming King of the Jews, and as King of Kings! At the end only the God of the Bible will be victorious. He will never forget what was done on behalf of His only begotten Son both in the past and for the future.

Salvation is not by works. The price would be beyond man's ability to pay. The blood of mere mortals is relatively worthless, but the blood of God incarnate is without price. Christ paid the price with His blood, and offers salvation to all who will come as a free gift of grace not merit. God will also reward those who come. He knows the sacrifices made in the past for Christ's sake, and He knows the sacrifices made for the future glory of Christ which will all be centered in Israel, Jerusalem, and the soon coming Jewish Temple.

Isa 45:22-25
22Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.

23I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.

24Surely, shall one say, in the LORD have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.

25In the LORD shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.
KJV

Isa 46:13
13I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry: and   I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory.
KJV

Ezek 43:1-5
1Afterward he brought me to the gate, even the gate that looketh toward the east:

2And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory.

3And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I saw, even according to the vision that I saw when I came to destroy the city: and the visions were like the vision that I saw by the river Chebar; and I fell upon my face.

4And the glory of the LORD came into the house by the way of the gate whose prospect is toward the east.

5So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court; and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house.
KJV

Matt 19:28-30
28And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

29And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.

30But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.

O Little Town of Bethlehem!

As a service to our subscribers, we have translated an article that appeared in yesterday’s Hebrew daily Ma’ariv, describing the fear and oppression under which Christians in the Palestinian Authority live, resulting in many of them leaving Bethlehem.
The following are excerpts from the article, written by Hanan Shlein.

“Make no mistake - Arafat’s insistence that he would go to the Midnight Mass in Bethlehem, “even on foot” if Israel doesn’t permit him to take off from Ramallah, does not necessarily reflect great love between Muslims and Christians in Palestinian Authority-controlled areas. In fact, the opposite is the case. The Christians suffer greatly just by being in PA areas, which is evident from what transpired during the exchange of fire between Palestinians in the Christian town of Beit Jala and IDF troops in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo. At the height of the firing, the Christians of Beit Jala received a particularly painful bear-hug: Tanzim activists, Muslims of course, chose their firing positions as close as possible to Christian religious institutions. The Christians instantly understood the ploy - one slight deviation of Israeli retaliatory fire on Beit Jala would suffice to harm the Christian institutions or homes. In such an event, Israel would receive grave reactions from the world’s Christians and the gain would be two-fold: both Gilo and Israel’s relations with the international Christian community would suffer a blow…

“One resident of Beit Jala remembers sadly: ‘We frequently were humiliated by the Muslims in Bethlehem. We Christians used to constitute 50% of the population in the city. Today, we make up maybe 20%. Anyone who was able to do so, left.’…

“Out of fear for their safety, Christian spokesmen aren’t happy to be identified by name when they complain about the Muslims’ treatment of them. Off the record they talk of harassment and terror tactics, mainly from the gangs of thugs who looted and plundered Christians and their property, under the protection of Palestinian security personnel…

Relations between Muslims and Christians deteriorated after the Israeli Army withdrawal from Bethlehem. It was then that PA security forces, all Muslims, entered, and the sentiments and frustration on the part of the Muslims turned into actions. Israel began receiving complaints from Christians about damage to churches and the smashing of crosses, without any real preventive measures taken by the local police. In addition, [bodily] harassment against Christians began, which reached its peak when Muslims sexually molested young Christian girls from Beit Sahur…”   [Ma’ariv, Dec. 24, 2001]

O little town of Bethlehem. Town of so much tragedy, yet town of so great a victory. Rachel died there giving birth to the last son of the twelve tribes of Israel. Rachel named him Ben-oni (son of my sorrow) which Jacob immediately changed to Ben-jamin (son of my right hand). Naomi fled from Bethlehem to Moab during famine. She lost her husband and two sons, but returned with the Moabites Ruth who became grandmother to King David. Out of great tragedy came great victory for Israel out of Bethlehem. King David was born in Bethlehem.  The prophet Jeremiah saw future tragedy coming to Bethlehem when he wrote "Jer 31:15
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." He saw the birth of one even greater then David from that same seed born in that same town with that same sorrow for a beginning. A price was set before the victory could come. King Herod would not step aside for the rightful King of Israel at His birth. He murdered all the children of Bethlehem he could find causing the weeping for her children because they were not. Jesus went on to live, and then die as the only acceptable sacrifice for sin. This same Jesus is coming again most likely to this present generation as the King He was always intended to be. This time a new spiritual generation of Jews born out of great tribulation will not reject Him. He will establish His Jewish throne in Israel, in Jerusalem, in the soon coming Temple to be built on the Temple Mount. It will be the greatest victory recorded in all of human history. It all starts in O little town of Bethlehem. The present sorrow will soon be turned to the greatest victory! Not a Moslem victory. Not an apostate Christian victory. Not a secularized Jewish victory. It will be the victory of the Lord Jesus Christ! The King of Kings!

Mic 5:2
2But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.
KJV

Matt 2:1-5
2:1Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

2Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

3When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.

4And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.

5And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,
KJV


Matt 2:16-18
16Then 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.

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

18In 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


Ps 132:6-11
6Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood.

7We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool.

8Arise, O LORD, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength.

9Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.

10For thy servant David's sake turn not away the face of thine anointed.

11The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.

The Palestinian Myth

 

The general impression given in the media is that Palestinians have lived in the Holy Land for hundreds, if not thousands of years. No wonder, then, that a recent poll of French citizens shows that the majority believe (falsely) that prior to the establishment of the State of Israel an independent Arab Palestinian state existed in its place. Yet curiously, when it comes to giving the history of this “ancient” people most news outlets find it harder to go back more than the early nineteen hundreds. CNN, an agency which has devoted countless hours of airtime to the “plight” of the Palestinians, has a website which features a special section on the Middle East conflict called “Struggle For Peace”. It includes a promising sounding section entitled “Lands Through The Ages” which assures us it will detail the history of the region using maps. Strangely, it turns out, the maps displayed start no earlier than the ancient date of 1917. The CBS News website has a background section called “A Struggle For Middle East Peace.’’ Its history timeline starts no earlier than 1897. The NBC News background section called ‘’Searching for Peace’’ has a timeline which starts in 1916. BBC’s timeline starts in 1948.

Yet, the clincher must certainly be the Palestinian National Authority’s own website. While it is top heavy on such phrases as “Israeli occupation” and “Israeli human rights violations” the site offers practically nothing on the history of the so-called Palestinian people. The only article on the site with any historical content is called “Palestinian History - 20th Century Milestones” which seems only to confirm that prior to 1900 there was no such concept as the Palestinian People.

While the modern media maybe short on information about the history of the “Palestinian people” the historical record is not. Books, such as Battleground by Samuel Katz and From Time Immemorial by Joan Peters long ago detailed the history of the region. Far from being settled by Palestinians for hundreds, if not thousands of years, the Land of Israel, according to dozens of visitors to the land, was, until the beginning of the last century, practically empty. Alphonse de Lamartine visited the land in 1835. In his book, Recollections of the East, he writes "Outside the gates of Jerusalem we saw no living object, heard no living sound…." None other than the famous American author Mark Twain, who visited the Land of Israel in 1867, confirms this. In his book Innocents Abroad he writes, “A desolation is here that not even imagination can grace with the pomp of life and action. We reached Tabor safely…. We never saw a human being on the whole journey.” Even the British Consul in Palestine reported, in 1857, “The country is in a considerable degree empty of inhabitants and therefore its greatest need is that of a body of population…”

In fact, according to official Ottoman Turk census figures of 1882, in the entire Land of Israel, there were only 141,000 Muslims, both Arab and non-Arab. This number was to skyrocket to 650,000 Arabs by 1922, a 450% increase in only 40 years. By 1938 that number would become over 1 million or an 800% increase in only 56 years. Population growth was especially high in areas where Jews lived. Where did all these Arabs come from? According to the Arabs the huge increase in their numbers was due to natural childbirth. In 1944, for example, they alleged that the natural increase (births minus deaths) of Arabs in the Land of Israel was the astounding figure of 334 per 1000. That would make it roughly three times the corresponding rate for the same year of Lebanon and Syria and almost four times that of Egypt, considered amongst the highest in the world. Unlikely, to say the least. If the massive increase was not due to natural births, then were did all these Arabs come from? ....
 

Far from displacing the Arabs, as they claimed, the Jews were the very reason the Arabs chose to settle in the Land of Israel. Jobs provided by newly established Zionist industry and agriculture lured them there, just as Israeli construction and industry provides most Arabs in the Land of Israel with their main source of income today. Malcolm MacDonald, one of the principal authors of the British White Paper of 1939, which restricted Jewish immigration to the Land of Israel, admitted (conservatively) that were it not for a Jewish presence the Arab population would have been little more than half of what it actually was. Today, when due to the latest “intifada” Arabs from the territories under 35 are no longer allowed into pre-1967 Israel to work, unemployment has skyrocketed to over 40% and most rely on European aid packages to survive. ....

 

To maintain the charade of being an indigenous population, Arab propagandists have had to do more than a little rewriting of history. A major part of this rewriting involves the renaming of geography. For two thousand years the central mountainous region of Israel was known as Judea and Samaria, as any medieval map of the area testifies. However, the state of Jordan occupied the area in 1948 and renamed it the West Bank. This is a funny name for a region that actually lies in the eastern portion of the land and can only be called “West” in reference to Jordan. This does not seem to bother the majority of news outlets covering the region, which universally refer to the region by its recent Jordanian name.

The term “Palestinian" is itself a masterful twisting of history. To portray themselves as indigenous, Arab settlers adopted the name of an ancient Canaanite tribe, the Phillistines, that died out almost 3000 years ago. The connection between this tribe and modern day Arabs is nil. Who is to know the difference? Given the absence of any historical record, one can understand why Yasser Arafat claims that Jesus Christ, a Jewish carpenter from the Galilee, was a Palestinian. Every year, at Christmas time, Arafat goes to Bethlehem and tells worshippers that Jesus was in fact “the first Palestinian”.

If the Palestinians are indeed a myth, then the real question becomes “Why?” Why invent a fictitious people? The answer is that the myth of the Palestinian People serves as the justification for Arab occupation of the Land of Israel. While the Arabs already possess 21 sovereign countries of their own (more than any other single people on earth) and control a land mass 800 times the size of the Land of Israel, this is apparently not enough for them. They therefore feel the need to rob the Jews of their one and only country, one of the smallest on the planet. Unfortunately, many people ignorant of the history of the region, including much of the world media, are only too willing to help.

 


It really is not ignorance in the normal sense. It is willing ignorance. It is a desire for the plausible lie over the easily accessed historical truth. Yasser Arafat was probably amazed more then anyone when his statement that Jesus Christ was the first Palestinian went unchallenged, and that it in fact was repeated by the media as a factual statement. This is typical of the lie the world wants to hear.

The Philistine origin the Arafat Arabs want to claim as their Palestinian roots is a rather foolish claim from a Biblical perspective! It is like claiming roots to Judas Iscariot, or the Devil himself.

This is an awkward Biblical passage in First Samuel. I never saw the image of an emerod? Maybe we can ask Arafat to tell us from his ancient past recollections! But, certainly not to show us!

1 Sam 5:11
11So they sent and gathered together all the lords of the Philistines, and said, Send away the ark of the God of Israel, and let it go again to his own place, that it slay us not, and our people: for there was a deadly destruction throughout all the city; the hand of God was very heavy there.
KJV

4Then said they, What shall be the trespass offering which we shall return to him? They answered, Five golden emerods, and five golden mice, according to the number of the lords of the Philistines: for one plague was on you all, and on your lords.

5Wherefore ye shall make images of your emerods, and images of your mice that mar the land; and ye shall give glory unto the God of Israel: peradventure he will lighten his hand from off you, and from off your gods, and from off your land.

15And Samuel judged Israel all the days of his life.

17And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious rebukes; and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall lay my vengeance upon them.

Don't be Fooled

Survey: US Muslims fault Mideast policy

 

By Michael Paulson, Globe Staff, 12/29/2001

An overwhelming majority of American Muslims, 79 percent, believe that US policy toward the Middle East led to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, according to a new poll.

Conducted by Zogby International and financed by the Pew Charitable Trusts, the poll found that 51 percent of American Muslims support military action against Afghanistan.

Sixty-seven percent say that the best way to combat terrorism is to change US policy in the Middle East, the poll showed.

The poll also found Muslims as a group to be more observant than many US religious groups, but less observant than often depicted in the news media.

According to the survey, 47 percent of American Muslims report praying five times a day, as is required by Islam. Fifty percent of Muslims say they went to a mosque in the week before being polled, slightly more than the 40 percent of Christians and Jews who report attending church or synagogue in the previous week.

Seventy percent of Muslims said the United States should reduce its financial support of Israel, while 61 percent said the United States should reduce its support of undemocratic Muslim regimes.

 

Islam has made a terrible theological mistake. They teach money is more powerful then their Allah! They blame the US for Israel's success in the Holy Land rather then acknowledge the hand of God. They also teach that mass praying like 5 times a day will intimidate God Almighty to change His support for the Jews, and do things to their likening! They would like more success for their assassins who throw away their lives  in premature explosions more then the successful maiming and murder attempts on Jewish children and targeted teens. Don't be fooled that it is just a militant few who hold to this kind of theology. It is really the heart of Islam to hate the Jew! The God of the Bible (the LORD of hosts) is about to deal with all the hate Islam has clearly expressed against His chosen people. The false theology of Islam must change, or the LORD of hosts will eliminate Islam. God has a plan for the future glory of Israel. Not just Islam, but all world religions must step aside for the King of Kings and His soon coming Kingdom, or they will suffer the same fate already decreed for a rebellious Islam. This includes the apostate Christianity and the false legalistic and secular Judaism of today. Change is the only hope! Humble submission to the LORD Jesus Christ, and the repentance and forsaking of all manmade religions as one comes to Christ alone is the only change that God will accept. It is the change that can only be accomplished by a change in the heart. A change that only Christ has the power to complete. A washing away (a promised cleansing) of all sin through the sacrificial blood Christ shed at Calvary!

Num 21:7-9
7Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD, and against thee; pray unto the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people.

8And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.

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

John 3:1-2
1There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:

2The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
KJV

John 3:7
7Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
KJV

John 3:14-17
14And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

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

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

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

Yehoshua: Coalition cowardice threatens Temple Mount
By Etgar Lefkovits

JERUSALEM (December 30) - The government is not acting to stop work being carried out by the Wakf on the Temple Mount that could be damaging our Jewish heritage, prominent Israeli author A. B. Yehoshua said over the weekend.

"It is so sad to see these archeological treasures going to waste, which are of such significance to all of us, because of the Palestinian desire to create facts on the ground. It is clear that the government - out of fear - is hesitant to act or renew supervision at the [politically sensitive] site," he said in a telephone interview.

The Israel prize winner was one of a dozen dignitaries who signed a blistering seven-page letter the non-partisan Committee Against the Destruction of Antiquities on the Temple Mount sent to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon last week.

The committee comprises archaeologists, writers, jurists, and politicians who have been decrying Wakf work at the site for two years.

The letter, which includes a 14-page annex detailing the various works they allege the Islamic trust has been carrying out, was signed, among others, by two former Supreme Court presidents, Justices Meir Shamgar and Moshe Landau; former state comptroller Miriam Ben-Porat; authors A.B. Yehoshua, Amos Oz and Yizhar Smilansky; and former IDF chief of general staff Dan Shomron. .....

"This government, like governments past, has no clear policy regarding its position on the Temple Mount," he charged.

 

Turn a blind eye may best describe the attitude of secular Israel to the Temple Mount. It's importance to them is only in the political advantages of the day. The Biblical truth is the Temple Mount is the only place on earth where God will make His physical presents known! It will be at God's choosing, and will take no consideration of the politics of the day. The truth is the next physical appearance of God at the Temple Mount will turn the politics of this world upside-down! A new Kingdom will be ushered in! The Kingdom of Heaven; the Kingdom of God! All secular governments and religions must step aside in submission, or face utter destruction by the LORD of hosts! The Biblical prophecies of the future glory of Israel's Temple Mount had been looked upon as something of the far distant future. Sovereignty over the Mount was not an important issue. World events are now moving the Temple Mount unto the front pages. The Temple Mount can mean only one of two things when the Pure and Holy God makes His appearance! It will be a curse or a blessing depending on the heart condition of everyone brought into His presents!

Folks! It just could be this new year will be the year of the rapture? The next Biblical prophetic event leading to the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, and His coming Jewish Kingdom!

Num 14:20-21
20And the LORD said, I have pardoned according to thy word:

21But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD.
KJV

1 Kings 8:10-11
10And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the LORD,

11So that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of the LORD.
KJV

Ps 24:7-10
7Lift up your head, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

8Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

9Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.
KJV

Ezek 39:21-25
21And 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.

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

23And 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.

24According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.

25Therefore 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;
KJV

Ezek 43:2-5
2And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory.

3And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I saw, even according to the vision that I saw when I came to destroy the city: and the visions were like the vision that I saw by the river Chebar; and I fell upon my face.

4And the glory of the LORD came into the house by the way of the gate whose prospect is toward the east.

5So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court; and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house.
