Chanukah Temple Mount Prayer Service

(IsraelNN.com) On Tuesday, 3 December 2002, the Temple Mount Faithful Movement will march to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. This is the fourth day of Hanukkah, 28 Kislev 5763. The march will begin at 10:00am Jerusalem time.

 

29 November 1947

Today, November 29, 1947, marks the day on which the United Nations General Assembly voted in favor of the resolution, no. 181, adopting a partition plan for the land of Israel under the British Palestine Mandate. The plan called for the termination of the Mandate and the division of the territory between Jews and Arabs, with the creation of a Jewish and an Arab state. Despite the fact that the Jewish state was to receive only a small part of Western Palestine, the mainstream Zionist Organization and its institutions agreed to accept the plan, since it recognized the right of the Jewish people to a state and not only a "national home" as stated in the 1917 Balfour Declaration and the 1922 Mandate for Palestine. According to the Knesset’s official website , "The adoption of the partition resolution by the General Assembly was received by the Jewish community with great joy and thousands went out to the streets to celebrate, even though it was clear that the Arab states and the Palestinian Arabs would embark on a relentless war against the realization of the plan to establish a Jewish state."

UN General Assembly Resolution 181 [Excerpt]:
"The Mandate for Palestine shall terminate as soon as possible but in any case not later than 1 August 1948....

"Independent Arab and Jewish States and the Special International Regime for the City of Jerusalem, set forth in Part III of this Plan, shall come into existence in Palestine two months after the evacuation of the armed forces of the mandatory Power has been completed but in any case not later than 1 October 1948....

"The period between the adoption by the General Assembly of its recommendation on the question of Palestine and the establishment of the independence of the Arab and Jewish States shall be a transitional period."


 

 

The battle for the Holy Land continues. Israel, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount remain contentious issues in the Islamic mindset. The idea of peaceful coexistence of a Jewish State, and Islam has proven nothing more then a pipe dream. Reality of more then 50 years proves Islam will never accept a Jewish State in the Holy Land much less a Jewish Kingdom! The Bush peace plan calls for coexistence. This, in spite of the Palestinian record of putting the wildest, bloodthirsty, heartless beasts of their culture into leadership rolls intended to torture and murder Jews. What clearer statement could be made by this "peace partner" that they will never accept peace with Israel?  Any manmade peace plan concerning the Holy Land that excludes the God of the Bible is doomed to fail!

God has a plan, but that plan does not include the heathen! In 1947 the beginning of that plan was formulated, and on May 14, 1948 it was implemented under great resistance  by Islam. God offers Islam a solution. They can submit to the Lord Jesus Christ by converting to His coming Jewish Kingdom, or face judgment and destruction. Ezekiel 38 & 39 forecasts the end of Islamic influence on the Holy Land, and would open the door for the construction of a single State Third Jewish Temple!

The Olive Trees Build the Temple

Haggai 1
1:1In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, saying,
2Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the LORD's house should be built.
3Then came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying,
4Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste?
5Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.
6Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.
7Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.
8Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the LORD.
9Ye looked for much, and, lo, it came to little; and when ye brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the LORD of hosts. Because of mine house that is waste, and ye run every man unto his own house.
10Therefore the heaven over you is stayed from dew, and the earth is stayed from her fruit.
11And I called for a drought upon the land, and upon the mountains, and upon the corn, and upon the new wine, and upon the oil, and upon that which the ground bringeth forth, and upon men, and upon cattle, and upon all the labour of the hands.
12Then Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, with all the remnant of the people, obeyed the voice of the LORD their God, and the words of Haggai the prophet, as the LORD their God had sent him, and the people did fear before the LORD.
13Then spake Haggai the LORD's messenger in the LORD's message unto the people, saying, I am with you, saith the LORD.
14And the LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came and did work in the house of the LORD of hosts, their God,
15In the four and twentieth day of the sixth month, in the second year of Darius the king.

Israel to UN: Two States for Two Nations

(IsraelNN.com) In an unprecedented move, Israel's UN Ambassador on Friday announced an acceptance of the 'two states for two nations' concept, living side by side.

Addressing the United Nation's General Assembly, Ambassador Yehuda Lancry made his statements defining Israel's willingness to accept a Palestinian state alongside the Jewish state. The ambassador's statement precedes a government decision on the establishment of a Palestinian state.

Tourism Minister (National Religious Party) Yitzhak Levy is addressing the statement in the weekly cabinet meeting in the hope of learning of Mr. Lancry's statements were made with the prior knowledge of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon or Foreign Minister Binyamin Netanyahu or on his own volition.

 

 

Despite overwhelming Jewish public opinion against a two State resolution attempt at peace, the Israeli secular government under pressure from the Bush administration is ready to announce its acceptance of the Bush "road map" to a secular peace plan. I, and many others have long opposed such a move as going in the wrong direction! It ignores the Bible, and God's plan for the coming Jewish Kingdom. It may be the politically correct move for Israel to make, but it leaves God out of the process. It is God who said the Holy Land is His to determine who will dwell there. God repeatedly declares it is for the Jews, and not to be shared with the heathen!

God is doing something wonderful in the Holy Land. His plan will bring perfect peace to the earth. His plan will bring back the Lord Jesus Christ to Israel, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount for the second time. The living Christ will rule the earth with a rod of righteous iron from Jerusalem as King of the Jews, and King of kings. The events taking place in the Middle East are the result of the God of the Bible beginning to usher in the Jewish Kingdom. The rapture of the true Church, the heart change of many Jews as the Holy Spirit leaves the Church taking residence in Israel, the Great Tribulation, the Third Jewish Temple, the rise of the antichrist, the rise of the city Babylon the Great, the rise of the Two Jewish Witnesses of Revelation 11, and the 144,000 Jewish workers is all part of what God is doing right now as He begins to form the coming Jewish Kingdom.

The time for dispensational change is close at hand. Oh, that a sleepy Christianity would wake up in excitment for the times in which we live!

 

 

The Peace When God is Included

Isaiah 11:4-10
4But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
5And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
6The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
7And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den.
9They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
10And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

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

Haggai 2:9
9The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.
KJV

 

 

 

The Temple the Babylonians destroyed is rebuilt, but it is never the same – the Ark of the Covenant is missing.

What happened to the Ark of the Covenant?

The re-building of the Temple which had began under Cyrus when the Persians first took over the Babylonian empire, and which was then interrupted for 18 years, resumed with blessing of Darius II, the Persian king whom we believe to be the son of Esther.

The work is completed in 350 BCE and the Temple re-dedicated. But it is not the same.

The intense spiritually of the First Temple cannot be compared to the Second. The constant miracles are gone. Prophecy is gone. The Ark of the Covenant is gone - and although there is a Holy of Holies, it stands empty.

The Ark - this special gold-lined cedar chest which had contained the tablets of the Ten Commandments - was the place where the Shechina, the Presence of God, descended from heaven between the outstretched wings of the two golden cherubs. What happened to it? The Talmud (in Ta'anis) talks about it and relates two opinions. One opinion says the Babylonians took it into captivity. The other opinion says that it was hidden by King Josiah who had anticipated the impending invasion and destruction.
(See Part 22)

There's a very famous story told in the Talmud of a cohen, a priest, who finds a loose stone on the Temple Mount and realizes that's where the Ark is hidden. On the way to tell others about it, he dies. The point of the story is that the Ark is not meant to be found. Not yet.

Read rest of Jewish Pharisees Leaven  Historical article:

 

 

Jewish secular history, and God's omnipotent plan run together in the pages of the Bible. It is God who is in absolute control of Jewish history as well as that of all mankind because the Jewish influence can't be separated from the history of the world. Men like Haman, Hitler, and Hussein have recognized this truth in various ways, and thought if they could eliminate the Jews they could free mankind from the righteous of  the God of the Bible. It is a plan that God will never allow!

The Jewish Temple is center to all God has done with Jewish history in the past. The destruction of the Temple has always signaled God's displeasure with his chosen people for their disobedience. Every time the Jews tried to fit into an ungodly gentile history they lost the land and the Temple was destroyed. Every time the Jews repented desiring to be separated unto their God the Jews were restored to the land and the Temple was rebuilt.

God has restored the Jews to the land again in our generation in anticipation of the changed hearts that He knows is coming when Jews begin turning back to the Bible, and their Biblical Messiah. The building of the Third Jewish Temple awaits this coming regeneration of the heart among many of the Jews in Israel!

The Ark of the Covenant, and the Shekinah Glory was missing in the Second Temple with purpose. It was the Second Temple that witnessed the even greater Glory of the personal presents of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Haggai 2:9
9The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.
KJV

 

A Third Jewish Temple is clearly part of God's plan as he blends Jewish secular history into the Bible once again. Not even all of Islam can stop the God of the Bible, and His plan for the coming Jewish Kingdom! The Third Jewish Temple will stand as an ensign in that day indicating the hearts of the Jews have turned back to their God! That the hearts of the Jews have sought refuge in their Messiah.

 

 

The Second Temple Forerunner of the Third


Haggai 2

2:1In the seventh month, in the one and twentieth day of the month, came the word of the LORD by the prophet Haggai, saying,
2Speak now to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and to the residue of the people, saying,
3Who is left among you that saw this house in her first glory? and how do ye see it now? is it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing?
4Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the LORD; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the land, saith the LORD, and work: for I am with you, saith the LORD of hosts:
5According to the word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not.
6For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land;
7And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.
8The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts.
9The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.
10In the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying,
11Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Ask now the priests concerning the law, saying,
12If one bear holy flesh in the skirt of his garment, and with his skirt do touch bread, or pottage, or wine, or oil, or any meat, shall it be holy? And the priests answered and said, No.
13Then said Haggai, If one that is unclean by a dead body touch any of these, shall it be unclean? And the priests answered and said, It shall be unclean.
14Then answered Haggai, and said, So is this people, and so is this nation before me, saith the LORD; and so is every work of their hands; and that which they offer there is unclean.
15And now, I pray you, consider from this day and upward, from before a stone was laid upon a stone in the temple of the LORD:
16Since those days were, when one came to an heap of twenty measures, there were but ten: when one came to the pressfat for to draw out fifty vessels out of the press, there were but twenty.
17I smote you with blasting and with mildew and with hail in all the labours of your hands; yet ye turned not to me, saith the LORD.
18Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the LORD's temple was laid, consider it.
19Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you.
20And again the word of the LORD came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying,
21Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth;
22And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother.
23In that day, saith the LORD of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the LORD, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the LORD of hosts.
KJV

The Al-Qaeda Connection

As an Islamist website published a statement allegedly from al-Qaeda claiming that it was behind last Thursday’s double-pronged terrorist attacks on Israeli targets in Kenya, a terror organization calling itself “Islamic al-Qaeda in Palestine” has begun spreading its name on the Internet, explaining that it is operating in Yasser Arafat’s Palestinian Authority. In a leaflet reportedly distributed in PA areas, potential al-Qaeda members are asked to swear allegiance to Osama bin Laden. While the authenticity of the internet announcements cannot be verified to any great degree of certainty, the presence of al-Qaeda operatives in Judea, Samaria & Gaza was confirmed yesterday by IDF Chief of Staff Moshe (“Bogi”) Ya'alon during a visit to a recruiting base. However, the Chief of Staff also stated that, thanks to intelligence information, Israel has been able to eliminate certain al-Qaeda threats both in Israel and abroad.

Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz, also addressing the al-Qaeda threat, told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Monday that attempts by the organization to infiltrate Israel have been frustrated by Israeli security services. Mofaz also warned that the terrorist threat is likely to worsen in the coming months, with the Mombasa attack being a watershed event.


Arab Mortar Shell Kills Arab Worker

An Arab laborer was killed this afternoon by a Palestinian-launched mortar shell that landed in the northern Gaza industrial zone. The shell, one of four fired this afternoon towards Jewish targets in northern Gaza, also wounded nine other Arabs. An Arab boy was similarly killed several days ago by shrapnel resulting from a Palestinian attack.

At least four other Arabs were killed since last night, one of whom was wearing an IDF uniform while engaged in attacking Israeli targets. He was killed last night near Netzarim, in Gaza, and on his body was found a Kalachnikov rifle and three grenades. One IDF soldier was lightly wounded in the incident. In addition, a terrorist was killed in a battle with IDF troops near Tul Karem today, another in Jenin [see below], and an Arab youth was shot while climbing onto an IDF armored vehicle.

 

 

Talk about shooting yourself in the foot! These are not the keystone cops, but Hollywood should take note of the Palestinian Authority attempts to stop God from ushering in the Jewish Kingdom. Of course, there is nothing funny about Yasser Arafat, and the Palestinian Authority as there is nothing funny about police enforcement. Hollywood is good at turning heartache into a smile. I suppose if it were not politically incorrect the next big blockbuster movie could be the Keystone Palestinians? The story lines could at least be discreetly used in the roadrunner/coyote cartoons.

It is a truth that only fools resist God. I know foolish things happen when fools are at work. It does put a guarded smile on those of us who are observing. The connection of the Palestinian Authority with al-Qaeda is another foolish move made out of hate. It gives the US reason enough to include Yasser Arafat and his PA as an active terrorist target in the War on Terrorism. This may well be another example of shooting yourself in the foot. I would hope the Palestinian people will soon reject Arafat and his PA out of absolute frustration in thier foolish actions.

 

 

The Lord does Laugh Discreetly at Foolishness

Psalms 37:7-15
7Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
8Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
9For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
10For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
11But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
12The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
13The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.
14The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.
15Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.

Files on Boston priests yield sordid sex tales

By Greg Frost

BOSTON (Reuters) - One priest had a history of molesting boys, another maintained a "double life" with his girlfriend and a third supplied cocaine to a teen-ager with whom he was having sex -- but the Archdiocese of Boston gave all three men new jobs even though it knew of their records.

The disclosures surfaced in thousands of pages from the personnel files of eight priests that were made public on Tuesday. A Massachusetts judge ordered the files released last month as part of civil lawsuits over the archdiocese's handling of the Reverend Paul Shanley, who is accused of raping boys.


Grand Jury Indicts Retired Priest


ASSOCIATED PRESS

 

 

CLEVELAND- A grand jury has indicted a retired Roman Catholic priest and six diocese employees on sex abuse charges, prosecutors said Wednesday.

Retired priest Daniel McBride is accused of soliciting sex with a minor, said Cuyahoga County Prosecutor William Mason. McBride previously was placed on administrative leave over the sex abuse allegations.

McBride, the six employees and five other people were indicted on charges that include sex abuse, rape and compelling prostitution, Mason said.

The indictments, which have been issued over the few months, follow a six-month investigation into accusations of child sex abuse in the Cleveland diocese.

 

 

 

The reason the Catholic Church does not deal with the flagrant sins of their priests is because they falsely endow these priests with supernatural usurped mystical power with the false claim of their administering the actual body and blood of Christ during the mass. The righteousness associated with Christ's miraculous power is in question when these pedophile, homosexual, whore mongering priests are exposed. God is brought directly into the situation when His power is claimed by these priests as being manifested when they conduct the mass, or last rites. God appears weak or blind, and not in control when these unrepentant wolves supposedly exercise His power while secretly committing sin of the blackest hue! The Catholic Church faced with this dichotomy of a homosexually saturated priesthood preying on little boys just tried to maintain the secrecy of these vicious acts perpetrated against children. It did not work because God would not allow the sins of the priesthood to remain hidden! These priests have been exposed as phony to all but the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church. They are not excommunicated for the vileness of their sin, but rather protected by a system that maintains power through false claims that they are the distributors of God's power.

It is time for Roman Catholics seeking the true Christ of the Bible to separate themselves from the corruption of this manmade system now so clearly exposed. God will not allow an unrepentant priesthood only sorry they got caught from representing His purity and holiness! It was the victims who exposed these heinous crimes, and not repenting priests! It was the secular law that demanded a penalty be imposed, not the pompous holy fathers! It is time to come out, and be ye separate!

The coming Jewish Kingdom will demand each individual Jew to come out of the corrupted Judaism now functioning in Israel. Only by going back to the Bible can salvation come to either Catholic or Jew! Only the Christ of the Bible can forgive sin. Only the Messiah has the power to administer His body and blood in redemption power!

 

 

Only Christ not Roman Catholic Priesthood

Hebrews 7:19-28
19For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.
20And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest:
21(For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:)
22By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.
23And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death:
24But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.
25Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
26For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;
27Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.
28For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.
KJV

Context of The Third Jewish Temple

Ezekiel 43:7

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

Barak began referring to the `Holy of Holies'

By Aryeh Dayan

In early September 2000, about two months after Ehud Barak and Yasser Arafat returned empty-handed from the failed summit at Camp David, a series of clandestine contacts was held in Jerusalem between Israelis and Palestinians. Most of the meetings took place in an isolated private home in the western Jerusalem suburb of Ein Karem, and were meant to find a formula that would resolve the harsh dispute that broke out at the summit around the future of the Temple Mount.

The talks were held at the home of Dr. Moshe Amirav, the man who was appointed the day after the Camp David debacle as the prime minister's adviser on the issue of a permanent settlement in Jerusalem. He continued to serve in this capacity through the Taba talks, and until Barak left the Prime Minister's Office. Seated alongside side Amirav at some of the conversations was Danny Yatom, who headed the political-security staff at the Prime Minister's Office at the time. In these conversations, the Palestinians were represented by the late Faisal Husseini, who headed the Palestinian negotiating team on Jerusalem.

The dispute over the Temple Mount had nothing to do with practical arrangements that would be implemented there. Both the Palestinians and the Israelis agreed to leave intact the arrangements that had been in place since the Six-Day War, in accordance with which the site is administered by the Muslim Waqf [Moslem religious trust] without Israeli intervention.

The crux of the dispute centered on sovereignty, and nothing else. While Arafat demanded that the entire Temple Mount - Haram al-Sharif in the Arab terminology - would be under full and exclusive sovereignty of the Palestinians, Barak demanded that partial sovereignty over the site - which, to the disbelief of several of his colleagues in the Israeli delegation, he suddenly began to call "The Holy of Holies" - would remain in Israel's possession.

Amirav and Husseini, whose Ein Karem conversations took place with Barak and Arafat's knowledge, worked out a formula that both men believed would be able to circumvent this difference of opinion. According to the proposal they drafted, the United Nations would establish a "commonwealth of states," in whose hands the Temple Mount would be entrusted. This commonwealth of nations would have 11 member states: the five permanent members of the UN Security Council; Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, the Palestinian state that would be established as part of the peace treaty, and Israel. Ongoing administration of the Mount, stated the document, would remain in the Waqf's domain, and Yasser Arafat "could be the guardian of the sites holy to Islam."

Dr. Moshe Amirav: "Give the Temple Mount as a gift, not to Arafat, but to the leaders of the countries of Islam."

The politicians continue defying the God of the Bible whether they be Jew or Gentile. The Temple Mount belongs to God! It is the only piece of planet earth that God decreed belongs to Him in a very exclusive way. It is the only place on planet earth where God authorized the Jews to build Him a house! Twice, God threw the Jews out of the Holy Land for disobedience, and left the Gentiles gain control of this precious place. God has returned the sovereignty of the Temple Mount to the Jews in our generation after the 1967 War. God has acted in anticipation to changed hearts among many of the Jews. Up to now, they have treated the Temple Mount like a hot potato. Secular Judaism does not know what to do with the sovereignty God forced on them. Arafat is far more eager to maintain the sovereignty he once had, but lost! Arafat and all Islam have made the Temple Mount a death issue. They will die rather then let Israel press the sovereignty that is theirs in anticipation of their coming King.

Please notice all the Christmas hymns that refer to Christ as the new born King! King of what, and King of where? The Lord Jesus Christ came to earth to be King of Israel at the city of Jerusalem, and His throne will be on the Temple Mount. A Third Jewish Temple is predicted in the Bible. It will be the only Jewish Temple with a throne! It is upon this throne that the antichrist will sit in defiant opposition to the true coming King. The antichrist will only have 3 1/2 years to falsely claim the throne before the Lord Jesus Christ returns to the Holy Land for the second time. The Bible does not say specifically where in the Temple the throne will be placed, but a good guess would be in the Holy of Holies! Even the blinded Barak (former prime minister) had to admit the Jewish future is directly connected to the soon coming Holy of Holies!

The Great Usurper

Revelation 13:1-9
13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
KJV

Revelation 16:10-11

10 The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom was plunged into darkness. Men gnawed their tongues in agony 11 and cursed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, but they refused to repent of what they had done.
NIV

Revelation 17:12-14

12 "The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast. 13 They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast. 14 They will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings-and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers."
NIV

Daniel 7:24-28

24 And 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.

25 And 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.

26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.

27 And 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.

28 Hitherto 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.

Probe of Kenyan attacks points to joint Hizbullah, al-Qaida operation

LONDON Investigations into the recent attacks on the Paradise Hotel and the Arkia plane in Mombasa are pointing to the possibility of joint operation by Hizbullah and al-Qaida.

Such an alliance between rival wings of the Islamic movement had previously been thought unlikely, but the Sunday Telegraph reports that investigators in Mombasa have uncovered "a number of clues" that suggest al-Qaida is working with Hizbullah to attack American and Israeli targets around the world.

According to the report, the al-Qaida terrorists responsible for the suicide bombing at the hotel used the same techniques as those developed by Hizbullah in the 1980s.

The investigators also discovered that the two missiles fired at the Arkia airliner are of the same type used by Hizbullah to attack Israeli targets. "They believe it was not just coincidence that the only claim for responsibility for the Mombasa attacks was made on a Hizbullah radio station," noted the paper.

It went on to quote a Western official closely involved in the investigation as saying: "A clear pattern is emerging that suggests Hizbullah is actively cooperating with al-Qaida. Hizbullah is very active in this part of Africa and shares similar objectives to al-Qaida."

Particular interest is now focused on the personal links between Osama bin Laden and Imad Mugniyeh, the Hizbullah terrorist who masterminded some of its most spectacular atrocities and kidnappings in Lebanon. He appears on the FBI's 10 most-wanted list for orchestrating attacks against US targets in Lebanon.

Western intelligence officials are now reviewing the level of cooperation between Mugniyeh and bin Laden, which is believed to date back to the mid-1990s when bin Laden and al-Qaida were located in training camps in Sudan.

Mugniyeh, who is believed to have moved from Lebanon to Iran when the Lebanese civil war ended, is reported to have made numerous visits to Khartoum in 1995, '96, and '97, and to have met bin Laden several times. ...

More recent evidence linking Hizbullah and al-Qaida was picked up by Western intelligence after bin Laden fled from Afghanistan at the end of last year, according to the Sunday Telegraph. It noted that between 80 and 100 al-Qaida fighters who fled into Iran were provided with false passports by Hizbullah before being relocated in Saudi Arabia and Yemen. At least 10 senior al-Qaida commanders are also believed to have been sent to Lebanon, where they liaise closely with Hizbullah commanders in the Bekaa Valley.



Chechnya's history is blood and suffering
By David McHugh
ASSOCIATED PRESS

     MOSCOW — On his tough bricklayer's fingers, Chechen Akhmad Arsamakov ticks off the members of his family who suffered under Moscow's rule.  Father deported by Stalin; grandfather joined a hopeless mountain rebellion against the Soviets in the 1940s; great-great grandfather led resistance to Czarist troops in the 1860s, was captured and then disappeared.
     "All of us suffered," said Mr. Arsamakov, 51. "But this is the story of every Chechen. Not almost every Chechen — every Chechen."
     Considering that within living memory the entire population of Chechnya was expelled from its homeland, the lanky construction worker's remark doesn't sound like an exaggeration.
 

 

 

When al-Qaida first became prominent they were mostly concerned with taking control of Saudi Arabia. The deep seated hate for Israel was always there, but now that they lost their base of operation that hate for Jews has become their primary driving force. It is Jewish hate that gives both al-Qaida, and Hizbullah the Islamic ear. It is anti-Semitism that gives them the ear of much of the rest of the Gentile world.

The events of 911 have drawn the US into this battle between Judaism and Islam. Next to the Jews these Islamic terrorists hate Christians the most. In the midst of this tangled web of religious war are found Christians who hate the Jews as much as Islam, and some strange alliances take place. The siege of the Church of Nativity in Bethlehem has recently demonstrated how the Christians of the Holy Land sympathized with the Islamic invaders rather then the Israeli liberators. Arafat loves to go to Bethlehem every Christmas where the Christians in charge of the Holy Sites greet him with great admiration. It makes for a very strange united Christmas in Bethlehem every year. 

This religious war reaches into Iran through Hizbullah. Now it reaches into Africa through the joint alliance of al-Qaida and Hizbullah. All this hate is focused on Israel. The goal is to kill, and torture Jews wherever possible. It is no wonder to me that Iran is mentioned in the Bible as the Eastern power in a three pronged Islamic invasion of Israel (Ezekiel 38 & 39), and Africa is mentioned as the Southern prong of this same "Last Jihad" invasion.

Chechnya has been in the news lately with the hostage taking of Russian theater goers. The goal is clearly declared by these Islamic terrorists as the formation of a North Caucuses Mountains Islamic Republic. It is from here that the Northern prong of the "Last Jihad" will originate. This Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal (Moscow and Tubalsk) will lead the great coming invasion motivated by hate for the Jews. This Northern prong will represent the Gog from the land of Magog who will unite all Islam in a final solution to the current religious war.

The end result of all this will be the destruction by God of Islam, and an open door for a return to the Bible movement among the Jews calling for the building of the Third Jewish Temple in anticipation for the coming Messiah/King's return to the Temple Mount!

The Invading Islamic Nations of Ezekiel 38 & 39 are in the news this very day!

"Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be Done!"

 


 

The Coming Last Jihad Islamic Invasion

Ezekiel 38:1-8
38:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:
5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.
7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.

A million immigrants? Where from exactly?

By Yair Sheleg

Roni Vinikov took up his post as a Jewish Agency emissary in New York three months ago. The Agency already has several emissaries in the Big Apple, but Vinikov will play a unique role: He is coordinating Agency activities among Jews from the former Soviet Union who settled in New York following the collapse of Communist rule.

About 300,000 people in that group opted for the American dream over its Israeli parallel, and a large percentage of them clustered in the New York area. Following a two-year series of discussions, the Agency decided to try to work among these Jews, in an effort to persuade as many as possible to give Israel a "second chance." Even before this, a-year-and-a-half ago, the Agency began a similar initiative in Germany, and soon plans one in Australia.

Vinikov says that his target audience is principally the relatively young, those who see "they will most probably not be able to realize in the United States the dreams they hoped to fulfill when they arrived there, and are, on the other hand, young enough to try a new place."

Several factors assist him in his task: First, the "Russian" community has not really struck roots in American society, nor in the local Jewish community. Although the latter has helped them a great deal, "the fact that Jewish life in the U.S. is mainly based on religious movements and synagogue membership is not well suited to the `Russians.'"

Second, the community maintains close links with Israel. "Eighty percent of them have primary relatives in Israel. Over 60 percent have visited Israel, while the average in the American-Jewish community is 7 or 8 percent. Moved by the situation in Israel, the "Russian" community in New York recently contributed about NIS 1 million to IDF soldiers.

In the past two years there has been a stronger move by immigration authorities to search for new "reservoirs" among the approximately 7.8 million Jews living outside Israel, in an effort to remain even somewhat close to the immigration levels to which Israel grew accustomed in the 1990s.

In 2000, 61,025 persons immigrated to Israel, but by last year that number had dropped to 44,247, and this year only about 35,000 are expected to immigrate - representing a 43 percent decline in two years.

Of course, these two years have been marked by a war of Palestinian terrorism and a serious economic downturn, and the results are obvious. Yet Jewish Agency chairman Sallai Meridor refuses to speak of a "crisis" in immigration: "What happened is that during the 1990s, we were spoiled by dramatic numbers of immigrants, and now it is hard for us to get used to a decline. I can still remember years in which only 10,000 -12,000 people immigrated to Israel, so the current number of 35,000 immigrants coming to Israel is an extraordinary accomplishment."

In any event, the numbers suggest the words of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon seem detached from reality. Ever since he assumed office two years ago, Sharon has never stopped trumpeting before the relevant bodies his goal of absorbing another million immigrants in the decade to come, which translates into 100,000 immigrants a year. Such an immigration rate was unheard of even in the Gay Nineties - except for the first two years, 1990 and 1991. Deputy Absorption Minister Yuli Edelstein, who answers to Sharon (Sharon holds the absorption portfolio), believes that Sharon's goal is realistic, "only if we take the right actions, in the right places." But even Meridor, who is directly responsible for bringing the immigrants and whose organization is largely judged on the basis of percentage points, offers a much more modest goal: half a million in the upcoming decade, or 50,000 a year.

This objective is realistic, says Meridor. "We have already had these sort of years in the past decade. I also believe that the security and economic situation will not continue throughout the decade."

"And ye would not" may be the saddest words in the Bible. They will be forever repeated throughout eternity by those cast into the eternity of hell. It is God's intent that all would be saved, but sadly not all will come!

1 Timothy 2:3-4
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
KJV

The sad truth is that many refuse to come. Many reject the Bible and it's only Savior/Messiah the Lord Jesus Christ.

God's plan is to bring in the next dispensation of the Jewish Kingdom. God would have all mankind come to the Savior, but sadly that is not going to happen. Soon, the Holy Spirit will leave the true Church at the rapture (leaving behind Apostate Christianity), and will dwell among the Jews of Israel as the Jewish Kingdom becomes a reality. Sadly, not all Jews will come as all gentiles did not come to Christ during the Church age. However, the omniscient God knows many Jews will respond to the call of the Holy Spirit when dispensational change takes place. Many more Jews will come to their Messiah during the seven years of Great Tribulation. The greatest move of Jews to the Holy Land not seen since the Exodus will be testimony that God has renewed the hearts of His chosen people.

I have no doubts many Jews from New York, Chicago, and many other places around the world will make the modern day Exodus complete. They will come with renewed hearts completely submitted to their God. It will be the day when construction of the Third Temple will be impossible to stop. It will be the day when the Book of Leviticus will again have it's blood sacrificial Biblical prominence restored! The only sadness for the Jews on that day will be for those who would not come!

Matthew 11:28-30
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and yeshall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
KJV

Israel Shall Be Saved

Isaiah 45:17-25

17 But Israel shall be saved in the LORD with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.
18 For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.
19 I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.
20 Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save.
21 Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.
22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.
23 I 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.
24 Surely, 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.
25 In the LORD shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.

Mormons meet with Jewish group in New York over baptizing holocaust victims

AP Dec. 11, 2002

Mormon and Jewish leaders met in New York City to discuss the Mormon church's apparent breach of its agreement not to posthumously baptize Holocaust victims and other deceased Jews.

Mormon leaders requested the meeting with Ernest Michel, chairman of the World Gathering of Jewish Holocaust Survivors who helped broker the 1995 agreement with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said church spokesman Dale Bills.

Before the meeting on Tuesday, Michel said the discussion would be preliminary. Numerous calls to his office were not returned Tuesday.

In a statement, the Mormon church said the meeting with Michel was "positive and productive" but did not elaborate on the outcome.

Mormons believe proxy baptisms give those in the afterlife the option of joining the religion. It's primarily intended to offer salvation to the ancestors of Mormons, but many others are included.

Baptisms for the dead are performed inside Mormon temples, with a church member immersed in water in place of the deceased person. Names of the deceased are gathered by church members from genealogy records as well as death and governmental documents from around the world.

"For Latter-day Saints, the practice of proxy baptism is a means of expressing love and concern for those who have preceded us. It is a freewill offering," Bills said.

At Tuesday's meeting, Michel met with Mormon leaders Monte Brough and D. Todd Christofferson.

Independent researcher Helen Radkey, who prepared a report for Michel, is certain the agreement has been broken. In her research of the church's extensive genealogical database, she found at least 20,000 Jews - some of whom died in Nazi concentration camps - were baptized after they died.

"There shouldn't be one single death camp record in those files," Radkey said.

Radkey has been researching Jews included in the Mormon databases since 1999, when she found Anne Frank and her extended family listed as being baptized.

Also among those baptized posthumously by the church, according to Radkey's research: Ghengis Khan, Joan of Arc, Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin and Buddha.

Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder and dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles, said the Mormon church needs to rein in its members if it is serious about its pledge to stop baptizing Holocaust victims.

"If these people did not contact the Mormons themselves, the adage should be: Don't call me, I'll call you," Hier said. "With the greatest of respect to them, we do not think they are the exclusive arbitrators of who is saved."

 

 

It is not just the Jews who are offended by these pompous Mormons who deny the Bible by making their religious records, and the Book of Mormon the means of salvation rather then the God of the Bible. They put their cultic religion above Almighty God Himself with this man invented lie about proxy baptisms. They convince the gullible that they alone are the authors of the Lamb's Book of Life.  They include Hitler and Stalin along with every filthy pervert, and every mass murderer they can get their dunking members to jump into the waters to represent. It is a lucrative business for the Mormon afterlife as the Mormon dunkers are foolishly convinced their proxies will be eternally indebted to them. It is a lot like the Islamic suicide fools who think they will go to a sex perverted paradise for killing Jews. It is bad enough that a Jew gets murdered by a fanatic Islamic bomber who ends his life, but now the Mormons fanatically use his name after death to break his ties to Judaism putting him unwillingly into the rolls of the Church of the Latter Day Saints. It seems like the Jews can't win for dieing?

All these false manmade religions will end when the Jewish Kingdom is established. It will not just be Mormonism, but all of Apostate Christianity! It will be all religions that either deny the Bible, or pervert it's teachings. It is only the Bible that will stand in the end with it's clearly taught single way of salvation. The Jewish Kingdom will again make blood sacrifices in the Third Jewish Temple reviving the great truths taught throughout the Old Testament, but specifically in the Book of Leviticus. Only the blood can wash away sin. Only the blood can make atonement for the lost sinner. It never was nor ever will be manmade religions that control salvation. It is only the pure and undefiled Lamb of God who can save. Only He shed His blood as the only acceptable sacrifice that was ever given in which the God of the Bible says is sufficient. It is only to Him that the repentant sinner can go to find security. All other ways are lies!

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

 

 

 

Atonement for Sin

2 Chronicles 29:21-36

21 And they brought seven bullocks, and seven rams, and seven lambs, and seven he goats, for a sin offering for the kingdom, and for the sanctuary, and for Judah. And he commanded the priests the sons of Aaron to offer them on the altar of the LORD.
22 So they killed the bullocks, and the priests received the blood, and sprinkled it on the altar: likewise, when they had killed the rams, they sprinkled the blood upon the altar: they killed also the lambs, and they sprinkled the blood upon the altar.
23 And they brought forth the he goats for the sin offering before the king and the congregation; and they laid their hands upon them:
24 And the priests killed them, and they made reconciliation with their blood upon the altar, to make an atonement for all Israel: for the king commanded that the burnt offering and the sin offering should be made for all Israel.
25 And he set the Levites in the house of the LORD with cymbals, with psalteries, and with harps, according to the commandment of David, and of Gad the king's seer, and Nathan the prophet: for so was the commandment of the LORD by his prophets.
26 And the Levites stood with the instruments of David, and the priests with the trumpets.
27 And Hezekiah commanded to offer the burnt offering upon the altar. And when the burnt offering began, the song of the LORD began also with the trumpets, and with the instruments ordained by David king of Israel.
28 And all the congregation worshipped, and the singers sang, and the trumpeters sounded: and all this continued until the burnt offering was finished.
29 And when they had made an end of offering, the king and all that were present with him bowed themselves, and worshipped.
30 Moreover Hezekiah the king and the princes commanded the Levites to sing praise unto the LORD with the words of David, and of Asaph the seer. And they sang praises with gladness, and they bowed their heads and worshipped.
31 Then Hezekiah answered and said, Now ye have consecrated yourselves unto the LORD, come near and bring sacrifices and thank offerings into the house of the LORD. And the congregation brought in sacrifices and thank offerings; and as many as were of a free heart burnt offerings.
32 And the number of the burnt offerings, which the congregation brought, was threescore and ten bullocks, an hundred rams, and two hundred lambs: all these were for a burnt offering to the LORD.
33 And the consecrated things were six hundred oxen and three thousand sheep.
34 But the priests were too few, so that they could not flay all the burnt offerings: wherefore their brethren the Levites did help them, till the work was ended, and until the other priests had sanctified themselves: for the Levites were more upright in heart to sanctify themselves than the priests.
35 And also the burnt offerings were in abundance, with the fat of the peace offerings, and the drink offerings for every burnt offering. So the service of the house of the LORD was set in order.
36 And Hezekiah rejoiced, and all the people, that God had prepared the people: for the thing was done suddenly.

I'm sure it will not be long before Yasser Arafat starts making claims of how he has reigned in terrorism for world consumption. A gullible world with anti-Semitic inner feelings will quickly repeat the claims once made. The Jews know the truth because they live with it daily. I often wonder how it must hurt to be the object of so much undeserved scorn. Today, the UN is contemplating taking Hezbollah off the terrorist list. It would be unbelievable if it were any other ethnic group other then the Jews being targeted by Hezbollah. I'm always wondering what it must feel like to be so unjustly scorned by the world as the Jews are today. I'm reminded how the world scorned the Lord Jesus Christ at His first coming. The coming Jewish Kingdom of the next dispensation will see scorn as great as was manifested against Christ by the Roman soldiers who spit in His face, and pulled out His beard by the roots. This next coming of the Lord Jesus Christ will be different from the first! He is not coming as the suffering Savior, but as the King of kings!

I'm always reminded at Christmas time that Christ the babe of Bethlehem is yet to be exhaled as King. The victory is coming at His second return to Israel, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount! The scorn of the world will be as great in this present generation as it was at His first coming, but this time it will be the scorners who will die! It will be a foolish death for them because they will have rejected the coming King ,and His Jewish Kingdom. They will be cast into hell where all eternity will not be long enough to recompense their foolish decision to reject the King. God is Just! As long as God offers eternal life to those who receive Christ, He must eternally condemn those who have rejected Him.

My Christmas prayer for you is the wisdom to understand dispensational change is upon us! The King is coming, and His Jewish Kingdom is in the process of formation. The Old Testament has come to life again in our generation. The Jews are back in their promised land for only one reason! The next dispensation of the Jewish Kingdom is about to be realized. The King is coming!

 

 

The King is Coming

Revelation 17:9-14

9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.

11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
KJV

Revelation 19:11-21

11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

A Fast Day -- to remember the day when the Babylonians first laid siege to Jerusalem, beginning a long line of disasters for the Jewish people

 


Revelation 18:10
"that great city Babylon, that mighty city!"
 

Isaiah 14:4-5

4 That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!

5 The LORD hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers.

Powell announces initiative to democratize Arab world

WASHINGTON In an address before the Heritage Foundation Thursday, US Secretary of State Colin Powell introduced the "United States Middle East Partnership Initiative," which is aimed at promoting the democratization of civil societies and economic growth in the Arab Middle East.

Before launching the new initiative, he reaffirmed President George W. Bush's commitment to ending the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, calling for the Palestinians to choose "a new and different leadership, new institutions, and an end to terror and violence."

Powell, who reiterated Bush's hope for the establishment of an independent state of Palestine by 2005, also said, "As the Palestinians make progress in this direction, Israel will also be required to make hard choices, including an end to all settlement construction activity, consistent with the Mitchell Report."

The new initiative received an initial budget of $29 million. According to Powell, the US currently provides more than $1 billion in economic assistance to Arab governments.

The initiative will work on private sector development to improve economic growth, the development of organs of civil society to "close the freedom gap," with an emphasis on improving the status of women in the Muslim world, and educational reform to "bridge the knowledge gap with better schools and more opportunities for higher education" throughout the Arab world.

Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Lebanon, and Yemen, Powell said, will receive "technical assistance to meet the World Trade Organization's membership criteria." "Enterprise funds" will be created, intended to "help small- and medium-sized businesses gain access to the life-blood of capital." Negotiations will also soon commence on establishing a free trade agreement with Morocco.

Powell noted that the government "would explore ways to enhance our bilateral economic trade relationships" with Egypt and Bahrain, possibly also resulting in free trade agreements. The US now has a free trade agreement with Jordan.

He emphasized the importance of improving political freedoms in the region, especially for Arab women. Too few women are represented in legislative bodies of Arab governments, he said.
He concluded that the US government will help reform education systems throughout the region by providing "scholarships to keep girls in school and expand literacy for girls and women."

Powell admitted that promoting democracy in the Middle East "is one of the most challenging undertakings" ever considered in the region, but added, "we should also avoid resigning ourselves to low expectations."

Before detailing this new plan, he cited the 2002 Arab Human Development Report, issued by the UN and written by leading Arab scholars, which documents the bleak economic conditions within the Arab world.

Powell noted that "many economies are stifled by regulation and cronyism. They lack transparency, and are closed to entrepreneurship, investment, and trade."

In Jerusalem, Ra'anan Gissin, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's press secretary, reacted enthusiastically to Powell's address. Referring to it as a landmark event, he praised Powell for linking US assistance to Arab countries with democratic reforms.

 

 

Here it comes in all it's worldly glory. That great city Babylon, that mighty city! Just as the Book of Revelation predicts - a revived Babylon is about to flourish as the Middle East Arabs discover democracy and worldly freedom. The fall of Saddam Hussein (Iraq is Old Babylon) seems close at hand.  I can see the United States Middle East Partnership Initiative as the centerpiece of the final false manmade peace plan (the Bush road map) that will end the "War on Terrorism." This is the false peace excluding God's plan for the coming Jewish Kingdom. This is the peace that will lead the world into Armageddon! This is the phony peace that will set up the worldly Babylon of the Great Tribulation to compete against spiritual Jerusalem. The billions invested in Babylon over the next few years will explode into trillions upon trillions as the whole world will benefit from investing in the Arab oil of these new democracies. The antichrist will find the wealth of Babylon his tool to control the economy of the whole world!

It will happen fast. I'm convinced the time is short. The king of Babylon will offer the world temporary wealth in opposition to the coming King of Jerusalem who will offer the humble of the world eternal salvation. The explosion of Babylonian prosperity will lead the world into a new freedom to sin as the rich look for new ways to enjoy their lustful desires. The meek and lowly will look to their coming Messiah/King to return to Israel, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount.

The next event of glory will be the rapture of the true Church ending a dispensation that lasted  2000 years. I believe The Last Jihad of Ezekiel 38 & 39 will come after the rapture ending Islamic influence over the Temple Mount, and opening the door to the building of the Third Jewish Temple by the Two Jewish Witnesses of Revelation chapter eleven, and the 144,000 Jews of Revelation who will re-establish the literal twelve tribes of Israel! The foundation will be laid for changed hearts among the Jews of Israel, and a return to Biblical Judaism as always intended in the Old Testament! Blood sacrifice (Leviticus) will again take place in the Third Jewish Temple looking back in remembrance of Calvary, and looking forward to the soon return of the Jewish Messiah. The antichrist will emerge as leader of the Western world, and will use the fall of Islam to establish his claim on Babylon and the world! What a new year seems about to explode on planet earth!

"Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be Done!"


 

 

The End of Future Babylon that Great City

Revelation 18:8-24

8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
16 And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
KJV

The Road to Babylon

Qatar expresses support for US democracy initiative

Qatar is expressing support for the new US initiative to bolster democracy in the Middle East.

Speaking yesterday, US Secretary of State Colin Powell said Washington is on the side of reform and change in the Middle East. The aim, according to Israel Radio, is said to be to provide funding and allow the US to work together with governments and people in the Arab world to expand economic educational and political opportunity.

A Qatar Foreign Ministry spokesman, said, "Qatar receives favorably the American initiative for a partnership between the United States and the Middle East," the radio reported.

 

 

It begins to build! The road to Babylon! Democracy in the Arab world! Bill Gates made billions in a few short years, but this coming Babylon after the fall of Saddam will create trillions upon trillions in much shorter time. The conditions seem ripe for such a monumental change in the Middle East. The attack of 911 that changed the world seems aimed at this objective. Terrorism must have a solution from a political viewpoint, and the world seems ready to grab hold of this plan for closure. A man inspired plan that does not take into consideration what the Bible says is God's plan for the Middle East, and the coming Jewish Kingdom. A road map to a false peace that does not take into consideration God's plan for Israel, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount!

Of Course, this is all speculation on my part, but it is speculation with a fundamental dispensational bias. The Bible says there will be an Israel at rest before the Islamic Last Jihad of Ezekiel 38 & 39 takes place. It is hard to imagine an Israel at rest under the present terrorist conditions? Democracy suddenly embraced by her Arab neighbors would change the situation overnight. What will not change is the hearts of the sons of Ishmael toward the Jews. Whatever peace may come with democracy; It will be false. The hatred that has been ingrained into the Arab heart will not disappear with an influx of wealth. If anything, the desire for wealth is never appeased. There is never enough! Ezekiel long ago said an evil thought will come into the mind of the invaders of Israel. They will come for a spoil! They will come with the thought of a final solution to the Jewish scourge to which all their hate has been eternally aimed.

 

 

The Last Jihad Begins The Great Tribulation

Ezekiel 38:8-23

8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.
9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.
10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:
11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,
12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.
13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?
14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it?
15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:
16 And 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.
17 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?
18 And 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.
19 For 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;
20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother.
22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Arab/Islam Democracy Without Changed Hearts

Ramadan reveals Islamic hate for Jews unabated

Sadly, Jew hatred is a growth industry once more, and the Arab/Islamic heartland was buying it up this Ramadan like a run on the year's hottest Christmas toy.

First there was Egyptian state television's heavily marketed screening of the 40-part series "Horseman without a horse," which depicted Zionism as a Jewish plot to rule the world. Every night of Ramadan, just after the evening meal, viewers in Egypt and 21 other Arab states settled in for a guided tour through the history of the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" - a proven forgery presented as if proven fact. The hit drama portrayed Jews as devious, murderous, subhuman creatures - an elaborate production designed to stir anti-Semitic feelings across the Middle East.

There was no shortage of such Ramadan fare throughout the region. Syrian state TV aired a series enlightening viewers that there is no archaeological evidence to support the stories of the Old Testament, which were fabricated to give the Jews a claim to the Land of Israel. The ruling party's Al-Ba'ath daily paper also defended the Egyptian "Horseman" series as an accurate account of the Jews "flagellation of human society, sucking its blood, harming its sanctity, and attacking human rights, morality, and general values so as to take ownership of all the nations of the world."

Not to be outdone, Palestinian media outlets gave special billing to anti-Jewish themes during Ramadan. One series of TV documentaries drilled home the singular message that any talk of a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem is a complete "myth" concocted to steal the holy city from its rightful Muslim owners. A televised sermon referred to Jews as "cursed... the brothers of monkeys and pigs, with a stream of curses that will continue until the Resurrection..." Moreover, attacking and afflicting Jews was presented as part of the destiny Muslims and Arabs have to fulfil, as a religious obligation from Allah.

All during the month-long observances, Arab media featured programs and interviews blaming the Jews for plotting the 9/11 terror attacks, hailing Palestinian suicide bombings as "noble, precious, and honourable missions," and offering prayers for all Muslims and Arabs "to rise as one man and fight... the tyrannical Jews."

Noted Arab affairs expert Ehud Ya'ari alarmingly noted in a Jerusalem Report commentary that the "essence" of the well-timed anti-Semitic crescendo was to show "there is no possibility of making peace with the Jews - not because of any political argument or clash over territory, but because that nation is a priori unfit to be counted among the human race... it is gradually building a case for justifying genocide!"

Meantime, Hizb'Allah TV station Al-Manar broadcast a call by the Shi'ite terror militia's leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah urging Palestinians "to take suicide bombings worldwide. Don't be shy about it."

Nasrallah's appeal came just as the al-Qaida terror network targeted hundreds of Israeli tourists in simultaneous strikes near Mombasa, Kenya. An al-Qaida-linked Internet site claimed the attacks were meant to punish Jews for their "sins against the Palestinians." It announced the formation of a special new branch in Palestine to "defeat the Zionist Jewish invaders and return them to the place... whence they came." The site also promised theworld a nother "gift for the holiday" to mark the end of Ramadan.

Analysts are concluding that al-Qaida has changed its mode of operations since being dislodged from Afghanistan and now is going after "softer" targets that are more vulnerable and easy to hit - synagogues, discos and hotel resorts. The added focus on Jews is calculated to quickly rebuild the terror group's support base by tapping into the rampant pan-Islamic anti-Semitism, while also making continued support of Israel a painful liability for the United States and other Western powers.

After all, hasn't history marked the Jews as the softest target of all?

 

 

It is Islamic/Arab hate that infects the hearts of the sons of Ishmael. Opposition to the death of a Jewish Temple is taught from birth to death. Freedom and democracy will only bring new methods of afflicting the Jews. There has never been as long a nurtured hate for any one people then is manifested by the children of Islam against the Jews. It is not going to be turned off with the signing of any peace treaty. It will not end with the expulsion of Arafat. It will continue beyond the acceptance of a Palestinian State should that day come. The hate must end before real peace can ever come to the Holy Land. Changed hearts is the only answer for the peace Christmas stirs in the hearts of humble men.

It is man that must change. It was the plan of God from the beginning to provide the means by which this miracle can be accomplished. The Christmas story ever reminds man that God kept His word. His plan to change the hearts of men willing to come to Him found fulfillment in the birth of Christ. The Kingdom promised Christ for His victory at Calvary is now in sight. It will bring a peace that men could hardly conceive. The little child with the fearsome beasts of the field all playing in innocent bliss. A time when sin, and the curse are not allowed. A time when animalistic hate will submit to the righteous rod of iron wielded by the Prince of peace.

It will come through Great Tribulation. The cost of real peace is high. It cost God His only Son, and it will cost man the surrender of the democratic freedom to sin. The continual sacrifices at the Third Jewish Temple will always remind men of the cost God paid to cleanse the heart from sin. The Christmas story will be remembered each time blood is shed on the altar of the Third Jewish Temple!

 

 

Chapter 11 God's Peace Plan

(Jesse the Father of King David)

(Jesus the Branch in Kingly Linage of King David)

Isaiah 11
11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den.
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.
11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
13 The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim.
14 But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them.
15 And the LORD shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dryshod.
16 And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.

Stones of Babylon Stones of the Holy Temple

The Greatest Stone Jesus Christ

A Modern-Day Fast

Leading rabbis of the religious-Zionist camp called for a large public prayer rally this afternoon, on the Fast of Tevet, at the Western Wall. Special prayers were recited in light of the difficult situation facing the Israeli people. Following the prayers and the end of the fast, the customary "Circle the Temple Mount Gates" will be held. Around the same time, prayer-and-Psalms rallies will also be held in London and Manchester.

Today, one of six days of fasting in the Jewish calendar, marks the siege of Jerusalem by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylonia. He later completely conquered the city and destroyed the Holy Temple.

Beit El Chief Rabbi Zalman Baruch Melamed sees special contemporary relevance to today's fast. "Days of fasting of this nature are not only a testimonial to the troubles of the past," he wrote in the latest edition of his town's weekly journal, "but are chiefly days of repentance and reckoning for improving our deeds in the present… Maimonides explains that the troubles over which we fast and cry include when foreigners make war on Israel, or when they decree that we may not fulfill Jewish precepts, or when they come... to take land from us."

Rabbi Melamed therefore notes that the troubles of recent years, "with non-Jews pressuring us to give over parts of the Land of Israel, are clearly among those things over which we must fast and cry out." He explains that today's Fast of Tevet must be directed towards precisely this tribulation of "international pressure and terrorist violence aiming to take away our land... Therefore, let this day be one of fasting, prayer, and crying out to the G-d of Israel, that He give us the strength to preserve our land, to stand up to the pressures, and to not give in under any circumstances to those who wish to destroy us."

The Fast of Tevet has also been declared by the Chief Rabbinate as a general day of Kaddish [a memorial prayer] for Holocaust victims whose date of death is not known. Rabbi Dov Begun, of the Meir Institute for Jewish Studies (Machon Meir), notes a direct connection between the destruction of Jerusalem and the Holocaust:
"The destruction of the Temple and Jerusalem led us into a 2,000-year exile, the pinnacle of which was the terrible Holocaust. By announcing 'May G-d's great Name be magnified and sanctified,' we are saying that despite all the tortures of the exile, His great name will be magnified via our return to Zion and the rebuilding of Jerusalem and the Holy Temple... Today, we must mend our ways especially with regards to the Land of Israel and Jerusalem, when our enemies wish to restore the siege around Jerusalem by establishing a state... There are even voices at home whose faith and spirit have been weakened and who seek to fulfill the wishes of our enemies..."

 

 

Yesterday I highlighted the Palestinian propaganda where the Islamic, Arab, Palestinians are taught that a Jewish Temple is a myth with no archaeological support. A political ploy to take away Islamic land so they say. Today, I highlight Rabbi Melarmed who prays in G-d's Great Name that this return of the Jews to the Holy Land will soon bring the rebuilding of the Holy Temple! The fast day of last Sunday was dedicated to the siege of Jerusalem, and subsequent destruction of the First Holy Temple by the Babylonians. A historical fact! Led by the great Gentile Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar a historical figure!

The Old Testament of the Bible has the best record of the events which  modern archaeology confirms. Every brick used to build the great city of Babylon in that day still have the name of Nebuchadnezzar inscribed on each one! Daniel the great Bible prophet lived in that very city declaring the era of Gentile rule had come to the world. He described all the great Gentile powers that would rule the earth until the day when the Jewish Messiah would come to establish His Kingdom.

It should be no surprise that Babylon is back in the news vying for the headlines with Israel. Saddam Hussein in his pompous visions of glory has been restoring the ancient city of Babylon. He has followed the great King Nebuchadnezzar, whom he personally hopes to be the reincarnated form of the greatest Gentile King of all time, and puts his name on all the new bricks being used in the reconstruction of that Great City of Babylon! The Biblical record, and the news coming out of the Middle East are making the Old Testament come alive in our generation.

The Bible says a Gentile King is yet to come leading the Western World (the ten toed remnant of the Roman Empire), and will use the wealth of "That Great City Babylon" to rule the economy of the world. A Jewish Third Holy Temple will stand against him in Israel at Jerusalem.

Most of the world prefers to keep it's eyes closed to these facts just like the Palestinians prefer to remain blind to the reality of a Holy Jewish Temple! Soon, the news events of the Middle East will overtake this willingly blind world as God establishes the next dispensation. The Jewish Kingdom age!

 

 

Gentile Kingdoms until the Jewish Messiah

Daniel 2:29-35

29 As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon thy bed, what should come to pass hereafter: and he that revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to pass.

30 But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart.

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

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

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

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

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

Labor platform would give up control of the Temple Mount

By Yossi Verter

The Labor Party will reportedly propose in its election platform that Israel give up control of the Temple Mount. This emerges from a draft of the party platform to be presented to the Labor bureau for approval on Thursday.

The proposal talks of a "special regime" in the Old City of Jerusalem and in the "holy basin" that will reflect the unique nature of the place for the three monotheisitic religions, according to Yigal Tsehor who headed the platform committee.

This differs, however, from the text adopted by the party convention in July that spoke of an "international supervisory council." Sources in Labor said the new phrasing was intended to soften the effect of the concession which, at the time, caused a furor in the party.

The original text was brought to the convention by then-party leader Benjamin Ben-Eliezer who believed Labor should abide by the Clinton blueprint for peace discussed at Camp David in the summer of 2000 and incorporate some of the Saudi peace plan into its platform. While heading Labor in the 2001 elections, Ehud Barak also spoke of commitment to the Clinton plan.

 

 

Yesterday, Rabbi Melarmed was praying that G-d's great name would be magnified through the building of the Third Jewish Holy Temple. Today, the liberal Labor Party voice of Judaism following the lead of our former sex pervert, Southern Baptist, President Bill Clinton gives their opinion of how to deal with the Temple Mount! This liberal voice of Judaism will persist to the very last days of the Great Tribulation. A secularized Judaism is following the lead of Northern Israel of the divided Kingdom age rather then a rocky, but spiritual Judah of the South.  History repeats itself with purpose as the Old Testament comes to life in today's news!

The Bible reveals the future Jewish leader of secular Israel as the foolish shepherd, the idol shepherd, whom God says His soul loathes! These liberal Jews show their abhorrence for the God of the Bible with their attitude toward His Holy Temple.  To them the value of the Temple Mount is only worth the political gain they can get from it. They foolishly think that by catering to the present blindness of the secular Jews they can proclaim themselves as the Party of Peace! They would give away the Temple Mount for a spoonful of pottage. They care nothing for the heritage, or the promises God has given them.

Seven years of Great Tribulation are aimed at changing the hearts of these secular liberated Jews. God is about to force the issue of Biblical correctness on the entire nation, and the world. Many will fight God being unwilling to give-up the freedom to sin in opposition to God. To do it my way! To seek my own style of peace! Many others through Great Tribulation will submit by their own free will to the God of their fathers. God has determined those who will come outweigh those who won't, and never will under any circumstances. The coming Jewish Kingdom is beginning to press the Jews of Israel.

"Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be Done!"

 

 

The Foolish Shepherd

The Idol Shepherd of Secular Israel

Zechariah 11:8-17

8 Three shepherds also I cut off in one month; and my soul lothed them, and their soul also abhorred me.
9 Then said I, I will not feed you: that that dieth, let it die; and that that is to be cut off, let it be cut off; and let the rest eat every one the flesh of another.
10 And I took my staff, even Beauty, and cut it assunder, that I might break my covenant which I had made with all the people.
11 And it was broken in that day: and so the poor of the flock that waited upon me knew that it was the word of the LORD.
12 And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.
13 And the LORD said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the LORD.
14 Then I cut asunder mine other staff, even Bands, that I might break the brotherhood between Judah and Israel.
15 And the LORD said unto me, Take unto thee yet the instruments of a foolish shepherd.
16 For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces.
17 Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.

DANES PROTEST NEWSPAPER'S ANTI-ISRAEL BIAS

About 700 people in Denmark have signed a full-page ad criticizing the country's leading newspaper, Politiken, for portraying Israel as a rogue state responsible for ethnic cleansing, apartheid, nationalistic expansion policies and state terrorism.

The ad, sponsored by a group of Jews and non-Jews, was published on Saturday with the heading, "Enough is enough."

"Politiken has contributed to the sharpening of attitudes toward Israel and Jews in general," the ad said.

"By comparing the Israeli occupation with the Holocaust and with the crimes of the Nazis, the newspaper has consistently demonized Israel, and in a one-sided fashion portrayed the Palestinians as a unique symbol of suffering," the ad said. "Articles in the paper have claimed that threats against the Danish Jewish population are understandable, as not all Jews have distanced themselves from Israel's policies."

"Continued and unabated Israel bashing for so long has led to a situation that when people write anti-Semitism, others don't recognize it for what it is," said Alan Jordan, part of the committee. "We are not a Jewish group, but equal numbers of Jews and non-Jews. We are just sick and tired of this."

The newspaper replied to the charges with an editorial on Sunday and four op-eds. The editorial said the group is dishonest for labeling the paper as anti-Semitic.
 

 

 

The battle for the coming Jewish Kingdom is not just with secular Jews. It is world wide! The hate for Jews is often associated with opposition to the Biblical "road map" of what God intends for the Holy Land.  Anti-Semitic attitudes are of deeper complexity then just hating Jews. It is hate against the Jewish book in which God has revealed Himself. The greatest Jew of all time was born in Israel, at Bethlehem, and was taken to the Holy Temple in Jerusalem at seven days for His circumcision! The world hates the prospect of a coming puritanical Kingdom. The world wants the right to be non-attendee's of such a righteous Kingdom. God says there will be no choice when that day comes. As God presses His will on this resistant world, the apathy changes to hate. The hate exhibited by the terrorist suicide bombers of Israel is a foretaste of the hate that will be generated when God ends this present Church dispensation, and establishes the coming Jewish Kingdom!

The Danes were great supporters of the Jews when they saw what the Nazi's were planning during World War Two.  The Palestinians have the same plan, but this generation of Danes seem to have a different attitude. Only a few stand up against the hate beginning to be expressed. It will be true of all countries once the antichrist appears. The world will want his freedom rather then kosher/puritanical demanded living in a Jewish Kingdom. They will follow the antichrist's "road map" to peace. They will identify the Kingdom of Christ as demonic. It will be called a rogue state responsible for the ethnic cleansing of Islam after Ezekiel 38 & 39. It will be called a state of terrorism when the Two Witnesses call down fire from heaven on their enemies.

Anti-Semitism has only just begun. Soon, Christ will be identified as the coming Jewish King who can't be swayed. The King who will demand righteousness be practiced not just in the Holy Land, but throughout all the earth. Freedom to sin will become a discouraging word in this coming Kingdom! Most of mankind will reject this immovable Christ who will rule with a righteous rod of iron. Their hate against Him will grow, and grow as the reality of puritanical righteousness sinks into the sinful hearts of fallen mankind! Only those willing to submit to changed hearts will enter this Kingdom when it comes. The rest will be judged by a Holy God!

The day is coming when God will say enough is enough!

 

 

Kiss The Son Lest He Be Angry

Psalms 2:7-12

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

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

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

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

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

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

Pope to Approve Miracle Attributed to Mother Teresa

Dec. 19

— CALCUTTA, India (Reuters) - Pope John Paul will approve a miracle attributed to Mother Teresa Friday, so paving the way for the beatification of the Nobel Prize-winning nun, the Missionaries of Charity said.

Beatification, in which a person is declared "blessed," is a key step toward sainthood, which itself is attained following the Roman Catholic Church's approval of two miracles.

"On Friday, December 20, the decrees to be approved include those concerning Mother Teresa's heroic virtues and the miracle attributed to her intercession," the Missionaries of Charity, the order the nun founded in 1950, said in a statement on Thursday.

"Tomorrow's ceremony will clear the way for her beatification," an official of the order, who did not wish to be named, told Reuters. "A formal beatification ceremony will take place only after that."

Twice a year, in July and before Christmas, the Pope approves decrees on heroic virtues and miracles attributable to those on the road to sainthood.

Church officials say heroic virtues include simplicity, humility and selfless service to the needy.

In October, the Vatican Congregation for the Causes of Saints approved a miracle attributed to the Catholic nun, who died in 1997 aged 87, and later presented its report to the Pope.

The miracle involved a 30-year-old Indian woman, Monica Besra, who was suffering from a stomach tumor and was inexplicably healed after praying to Mother Teresa, also known as the "saint of the gutters."

Mother Teresa's successor, Sister Nirmala, is in Rome and domestic media said she would attend the function at which the Pope formally approves the decrees.

The Pope put Mother Teresa on the fast track to sainthood in 1999, two years after she died, in response to requests by devotees that the Vatican speed the process of canonizing her.

Normally church rules require five years to pass following a person's death before the process of sainthood begins.

"Saint of the Gutters"

The Roman Catholic Church has a saint for every occasion. Some day they may even have a saint to the unknown occasion so all the bases are covered.

The Pope waves Church tradition, and speeds up the sainthood of Mother Teresa. It is too bad he won't wave Church tradition to root out the homosexual pedophile blight in the priesthood? A new Bishop in Boston does nothing in reforming a system that has been exposed for all it's ghastly sins perpetrated on the most innocent.

The Roman Catholic Church has long used tradition to bypass Bible doctrine. They have long used phony mystical powers to spin a yarn to the gullible. The phony mystical powers of the Priesthood stand foremost. The mystical power to forgive, and dictate penance for sin. The mystical power to render last rights to the dieing. The mystical power to sprinkle holy water at a funeral declaring the power to give entrance to heaven. The mystical power to administer the literal body and blood of Christ at the mass. It is all a great lie based on Church tradition not the Bible. The Bible gives all that power to Christ, and Christ alone.

Only Christ is King. How sad that the Roman Catholics usurp His position with a worldly Pope. It is time for those who make claims of following Christ to come out of this phony system now exposed. The priest who just ministered last rights may have forced unwanted sex on some little boy just hours earlier. The Roman Catholic system that protects such perverts exposes a Roman Catholic god who depends on false miracles to remain the power. The power Mother Teresa will soon have through Church tradition will only add to this method of keeping the gullible gullible.

Today's Charismatics have gleaned the phony message about miracle power from the Roman Catholic Church, and have now taken the miraculous into new depths of phony mysticism. They have turned the real miracles of the Bible into a Hollywood circus magic show to awe the gullible. It works very well, and opens the door to the greatest mystic of all times - the antichrist!

Who will be King for you this Christmas? Can you accept a Jewish King who literally fulfills the requirements of Leviticus. The Third Jewish Temple will exemplify Christ daily by the joining of Blood sacrifice to a remembrance of Calvary. This will continue as long as kosher worship is conducted in it's courts. The antichrist will stop the oblation, but only for the last half of the Great Tribulation. He will claim he is the king of the world! He will be the last phony king of worldly religion and corrupt government. Many will follow him. All must step aside when the only true King comes again! Islam, Apostate Christianity, all religions, all governments must step aside when the Biblical King returns! Are you ready to forsake your religious traditions, and submit to the Christ of the Bible!

 

 

World's King of Religion and Government

Revelation 16:13-21

13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.
18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

Sharon Seeks to Persuade Ministers to Support Arafat's Man as Church Head

Sharon Trying to Persuade Ministers to Support Arafat's Man for Church Appointment
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon plans to ask the cabinet this Sunday to approve a man closely associated with PLO terrorist chief Yasser Arafat as head of the Greek Orthodox church in Israel: Irineos I. Until then, Sharon will be conducting meetings with several ministers who are strongly against the appointment.

Arutz-7 has received copies of letters written by Irineos to Yasser Arafat in which he uses sharp anti-Semitic terminology and openly expresses his support for the PLO’s terrorism against Israel. On July 17, 2001, he wrote, “You [Arafat] are aware of the sentiments of disgust and disrespect that all the Holy Sepulchre fathers are feeling for the descendants of the crucifiers of our Lord... actual crucifiers of your people, Sionists [sic] Jewish conquerors of the Holy Land of Palestine.”

The letter was written in reaction to Justice Minister Meir Sheetrit's rejection of Irineos' candidacy for the Patriarchal position. In the letter, Irineos asks Arafat for his support, promising that if he is elected, "rest assured, Mr. President, that the rights of our most beloved Palestinian people on the Holy City of Jerusalem will find the most 'hot' supporter."

Arutz-7's Shimon Cohen reports that until recently, Prime Minister Sharon vehemently opposed the appointment of the new Greek Orthodox Patriarch, because of his strong connection to Arafat and his support for using terrorism as a weapon against Israel. Cohen also reports that Greece itself objects to Irineos as head of the Greek Orthodox Church in Israel.

Sharon's aide Dov Weisglass, however, said that the U.S. is pressuring the government to appoint Irineos. He said as much to several ministers this morning whose support for the appointment he was trying to obtain. Foreign Minister Binyamin Netanyahu responded that he would be willing to go to the U.S. and present the evidence of Irineos' strong bonds with the PA in general and with Arafat in particular. Minister Sheetrit, however, who is a leading candidate to serve in the next government because of his support for Sharon's Palestinian state idea, has already changed his mind regarding Irineos and now supports the appointment.

A second letter from Irineos to Arafat, dated April 5, 2002, emphasizes Arafat’s “heroic resistance” to Israel’s “illegal and inhuman aggression” against Arafat’s headquarters in Ramallah and Christian “holy sites” in Bethlehem. Irineos signed the letter in large type as “PATRIARCH OF JERUSALEM AND WHOLE PALESTINE.”

 

 

It is this kind of Christianity that will be left behind to help the antichrist work his final solution against the children of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. A Christian/Islamic unified monotheistic religious conglomerate associated with the coming world capital city of Babylon will oppose the only other monotheistic religion of the Great Tribulation. The antichrist will use both as they use each other to oppose God's road map for Israel, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount.

As the Patriarch uses the Palestinians and vice versa, so also the religions of the world will unite to use each other for political power, and the antichrist will use them all to become the final power. The stage seems set for the final act. the final solution where the users get used as the antichrist turns on them all.

 

 

The Whore, The False Religions of the Great Tribulation

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

Officials: Explosions Kill 46 in Chechnya

Russian Officials: At Least 46 Killed in Explosions at Chechnya's Pro-Moscow Gov't Headquarters
The Associated Press

 

MOSCOW Dec. 27

Suicide bombers drove two trucks packed with explosives through cordons protecting the headquarters of Chechnya's pro-Moscow government Friday and then detonated them, killing at least 46 people and wounding 70 more, the Russian government said.

The blasts, which leveled one wing of the building, dealt a severe blow to the efforts by President Vladimir Putin's government to portray the republic as returning to normal after more than three years of war between separatist rebels and a massive Russian military contingent.

Chechen Interior Minister Ruslan Tsakayev told the Interfax news agency the bombs were contained in a delivery truck and a sport utility-style vehicle used by the Russian military.

Viktor Shkareda, deputy head of the Emergency Situations Ministry in southern Russia, said 46 people were confirmed dead in the blast and 70 wounded. Rescuers were finding fragments of other bodies as they scrabbled through the heaps of broken concrete and shattered glass, officials said.

The explosions hit around 2:30 p.m. just after lunch break ended, and the building was full of employees and visitors. NTV said as many as 200 people normally worked in the building.

The larger, Kamaz truck exploded next to the building, while the smaller UAZ vehicle blew up in an adjacent parking lot used by government cars, ITAR-Tass said.

The explosions had the force of one ton of TNT and left a 20-foot-wide crater, Chechen prosecutor Valery Kravchenko said.

NTV television showed stunned and bleeding people stumbling out of the rubble of the administration building, one of the few in the war-shattered Chechen capital to have been renovated completely. Other people were dragged out by their hands and feet, while bloodied soldiers tried to establish order.

The administration headquarters, where the civilian government is based, was damaged severely. NTV showed windows blown out and a sea of building wreckage and burned-out cars in the adjacent square.

The attack came as the government has tried to reinforce its claim that Chechnya is calming by pressuring refugees to go home and shepherding foreign journalists to Grozny on carefully controlled tours to examine reconstruction projects.

Although Russian troops have had nominal control of Grozny since early 2000, the city remains largely in ruins from intense Russian air and artillery attacks. Rebels heavily infiltrate the city and bloody Russian forces there with daily hit-and-run attacks remote-controlled explosives. ...

It was the biggest suspected Chechen rebel attack since militants seized a Moscow theater in October, taking about 800 people hostage. All 41 attackers were killed, as were 129 hostages, all but two of whom succumbed to a knockout gas used by Russian authorities to incapacitate the assailants.

The last large attack in Grozny occurred in October, when rebels blew up a Grozny police precinct house, killing at least 25 people. Militants also exploded a passenger bus in September, killing 19 people, mostly civilians.

Rebels also have shot down several military helicopters this year. In one incident, at least 119 people were killed.

The "chief prince" (or the "prince of Rosh" - chief literally translates to Rosh in Hebrew - Rosh translates to Russia in modern Hebrew ) is stirring north of the Caucasus. The plan is to form an all Islamic Republic north of the Caucasus Mountains. The pressure on the Russian Gog to let them go is great. They will not relent. The weakened Russian's will soon release this penned up animalistic culture to wreak havoc on the Holy Land. It is this "chief prince" who will lead militant Islam into utter humiliation and destruction on the fields and mountains of Israel. If we are the generation to see the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38 & 39, then Chechnya is being prepared to lead the "Last Jihad" invasion of Israel.

These events have been known to God from the very beginning. The Book of Genesis has given us the background of the Gog, and the "Russian prince" who settled north of the Caucasus after Noah landed on Mount Ararat (a leading peak of the Caucasus Mountain chain)! It is not until Ezekiel raises the Gog back into remembrance that they become important to us today. It is the "chief prince" of the Gog who lead this dastardly 3 pronged invasion of Israel. The thought seems to me  that it is the Gog who secretly approve of this invasion, and in a sense the "chief prince" represents the wishes of it's former unwanted ruler. To the God of the Bible, when He pronounces His judgment on this "chief hate filled prince" also pronounces judgment against the Gog who fostered this wild prince. The Gog (as king of the North) follow their "chief prince" just 7-years later. The Great Tribulation begins with the "Last Jihad" Islamic invasion of Israel that opens the door to the building of the Third Jewish Holy Temple, and ends with the Russian invasion of Israel at Armageddon where half the city of Jerusalem is conquered. The city is about to fall as a small remnant of spiritual Jews return from having fled into the wilderness from the antichrist during the last half of the Great Tribulation. They will have built the Third Jewish Temple, and established kosher worship. They will have turned back to the Bible, and will be appealing to the secular Jews who remained to turn to Christ. All the Jews will be preparing for the worst by the Gog. It is then that the Lord Jesus Christ returns to establish His Jewish Kingdom.

He saves Jerusalem, and His remnant out of the judgment of Armageddon much as Noah and his family were saved out of the great flood.

I watch the Chechnyan revolt with great interest!

 

 

 

Noah’s Flood?

Ancient Settlement Found Beneath the Black Sea

W A S H I N G T O N, Sept. 14 — The first evidence that humans lived in an area now covered by the Black Sea — perhaps inundated by the biblical flood — has been discovered by a team of explorers.

 

First the Last Jihad then 7-years Later Armageddon

Zechariah 14:1-9
14:1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.

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

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

4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:

7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.

8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.

9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.

The fire storm is upon us. Technology is now able to spin computer age advancements into god like abilities. It is a lie, but the spin is very real. These scientists must take what God has already created before they can start. They claim creative god like powers that mimic my making my morning coffee. I have never tried to spin making a cup of coffee into supernatural power. "From nothing" is God like, not their claim to god like powers through the science of cloning. Taking the raw chemicals that make up a living being, and putting that together would be something to brag upon, but this is only making coffee spun into miracle working power. All that this is, and is means is, is a modern twist on fornication. These babies will have no mama, or have no papa. The scientists will have been the fornicators injecting what God has made into unknown sinful experiments with no feeling of responsibility.

The abandoned babies will still find a Father in heaven who loves them just as He loves every crack baby born through fornication, and provided a means for their salvation should they come to Him when and if they reach accountability.

The scientists will face the penalty of their sin at the judgment. They will sit with all the fornicators throughout history who pompously thought they created life without personal responsibility. The cloning scientists do nothing more then what fornicators have done throughout history. The media spins this news into blasphemous visions of man reaching god like power.

Fornication has Consequences

Ezekiel 16:26-38

26 Thou hast also committed fornication with the Egyptians thy neighbours, great of flesh; and hast increased thy whoredoms, to provoke me to anger.
27 Behold, therefore I have stretched out my hand over thee, and have diminished thine ordinary food, and delivered thee unto the will of them that hate thee, the daughters of the Philistines, which are ashamed of thy lewd way.
28 Thou hast played the whore also with the Assyrians, because thou wast unsatiable; yea, thou hast played the harlot with them, and yet couldest not be satisfied.
29 Thou hast moreover multiplied thy fornication in the land of Canaan unto Chaldea; and yet thou wast not satisfied herewith.
30 How weak is thine heart, saith the Lord GOD, seeing thou doest all these things, the work of an imperious whorish woman;
31 In that thou buildest thine eminent place in the head of every way, and makest thine high place in every street; and hast not been as an harlot, in that thou scornest hire;
32 But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers instead of her husband!
33 They give gifts to all whores: but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto thee on every side for thy whoredom.
34 And the contrary is in thee from other women in thy whoredoms, whereas none followeth thee to commit whoredoms: and in that thou givest a reward, and no reward is given unto thee, therefore thou art contrary.
35 Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the LORD:
36 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thy filthiness was poured out, and thy nakedness discovered through thy whoredoms with thy lovers, and with all the idols of thy abominations, and by the blood of thy children, which thou didst give unto them;
37 Behold, therefore I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou hast taken pleasure, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that thou hast hated; I will even gather them round about against thee, and will discover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy nakedness.
38 And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy.

Jordan Braces for War, Fears Break-Up of Iraq

Reuters
Saturday, December 28, 2002; 8:49 PM

By Suleiman al-Khalidi

AMMAN (Reuters) - Jordan, a major regional ally of Washington, said on Saturday it was bracing for a probable U.S. led war against Iraq and expressed fears that this could lead to the break-up of its powerful eastern neighbor.

"There is a very large chance of a military strike against Iraq and the chances of avoiding war are very marginal," Foreign Minister Marwan al-Muasher told reporters in a meeting arranged by the local press syndicate.

Echoing widespread domestic worries about Iraq's break-up in a post-war conflict, Muasher said the kingdom's interests would not be served by its eastern neighbor's disintegration.

"We again insist on Iraq's territorial integrity. Iraq should not be divided and we are against any intervention or its break-up into statelets," he said.

Jordanian decision-makers voice alarm that a possible outcome of a U.S. military invasion of its eastern Arab neighbor would be civil war and strife in multi-ethnic Iraq.

Officials are worried this would reverberate across the region, sowing domestic instability in Arab countries such as Jordan where anti-U.S. sentiment is strong.

 

 

What is going to happen after the war is what is on the Islamic mind. The democratization of Iraq will bring democracy to the Middle East Arabs, and many other Islamic dictatorships are worried. The moderate Arab countries are most likely to get caught up in the new fever of freedom. Jordan and Saudi Arabia are the most probable in my estimation to follow quickly the democracy call. The peace that will follow with Israel will be short lived according to the Bible. Freedom will not bring a change to the hate filled hearts of the son's of Ishmael. I'm sure the spin will cause the bells of peace to ring round the world as the greatest conflict in the world will be declared solved. The joy will last only to the fulfilling of Ezekiel 38 & 39. The Islamic invasion of Israel!

The new Iraq is headed to worldly success if this is the time for Babylon in the book of Revelation to take it's prophetic roll in world history. Today is the day when Arab oil can merge with the Western world's technology to produce an economic entity that will rule the world. This will be the base from which the antichrist will launch his desire to be king of the world. Babylon will provide him the monetary, and technological platform from which to rule the world. The meaning of 666 will be revealed when the antichrist takes control forcing all to submit or suffer.

What will happen in Iraq during this next year should stir the heart of all who study the Bible. A wake-up call is being shouted to a sleepy Church that has become neither cold nor hot. The time to separate the wheat from the tares is upon us. The Church is about to be broken up. Apostate Christianity is also headed for worldly success. The true saints will be taken (raptured), and the tares will be left behind blinded by pride to their real condition. The religions of Christianity will continue. The Churches will continue having their traditional Sunday services. The Catholics will have their perverted priesthood giving them mass. The Charismatic circus revivals will continue calling the gullible to the Charismatic mystical Christ. The Southern Baptists will continue having their yearly conventions. Jimmy Carter may return having had his feathers smoothed, and Bill Clinton may be honored for his example of repentance? But, the saints will no longer be present! This is what will happen after the rapture! This is what will happen after the breakup of the Church!

Will this coming year be the year?

The Breakup of the Christian Church

Matthew 24:38-51

38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But 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.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Jews Distort the Torah

30 December 2002

After consistently attempting to convince Arab readers that Jews, Judaism and the Jewish tradition are the harbingers of all evil, a new article in the Kuwaiti newspaper Khaleej Times reverses the trend - purporting to show that it is Jewish distortions of Judaism - not Judaism itself - that are the source of evil in the Middle East.

Titling the article, “Israeli bid to distort texts of religious books exposed”, Muawia E. Ibrahim reports about an Arab historian who “has exposed attempts by Israeli right-wing organizations to distort texts of Torah and other religious books in order to justify Israel´s occupation of Palestinian and other Arab territories and to erase the Arab identity of territories under its control.” The historian, Dr Mohammed Khalifa Hassan, Director of the Center for Oriental Studies at Cairo University, delivered his lecture, entitled "Israeli political thought and its relationship with the Jewish legends", at the Zayed Centre for Coordination and Follow-Up (ZCCF).

The newspaper reported that Dr. Hassan told the gathering that “Jews inside and outside Israel use rumor tactics about the occurrence of miracles and other religious phenomena for the sake of achieving political ends, especially during the periods of oppression and legends to explain Torah texts.” He cited, as an example of “distortions in Torah,” the text related to the birth of the Red Heifer. According to the Egyptian historian, the Red Heifer commandments detailed in the Torah are “aimed at the destruction [of] al-Aqsa mosque and rebuilding of the third Temple in its place. According to their legend, the birth of the red cow, which they claim has already taken place in the village of Kafr Hisidim [sic] near Jerusalem, is hailed as a sign of the arrival of the Messiah....” Other examples of Torah “distortions” according to the Egyptian lecturer are: “the legend about the purity of the Israeli Jewish blood, the legend of the promised land, the Divine Promises and the belief of Messiah´s return to David´s House to re-establish the kingdom and gathering of Jews, etc....” Khaleej Times reported, “They exploit such superstitious and mythical interpretations to serve their political and religious objectives, Dr Hassan said.” According to the Kuwaiti newspaper, “Dr. Hassan concluded his lecture by saying that such religious legends provided great support to the Israeli military establishment that perpetrates heinous atrocities against innocent Palestinians and Arabs in general.”

 

 

Islam is not blind to what the God of the Bible is doing in preparation for the coming Kingdom. Muawia E. Ibrahim has clearly acknowledged the issue.  It is the Temple Mount, and the soon coming Third Jewish Temple. It is the re-establishment of kosher blood sacrifice, and the return to Biblical Judaism (Book of Leviticus) by the Jews. It is the return of the Messiah, and the establishment of the promised Davidic Kingdom. He has it right! Where he has it wrong is that he claims the Bible is a political book. The product of modern day Zionists intent on taking the land from the Arabs. It is a lame argument against the most established book of all human history, but what else can he do in resisting the plan of the God of the Bible?

It seems to me that Islam has a greater  awareness of what is happening then does Christianity. Islam sees the Jewish Kingdom as here while Christians sleep. Most of Christianity still thinks the Kingdom will be a Gentile dominated spiritual phenomenon rather then a literal Jewish Old Testament type Kingdom re-established in the Holy Land. Islam is refusing to step aside for the coming Kingdom, but Christianity for the most part is just ignoring it.

How many 2003 sermons will be as pointed as the Islamic professor has been about the reality of Israel, the Third Jewish Holy Temple, and the imminent coming of the Messiah to establish His Davidic Kingdom? The silence I predict will be deafening. The Church has failed by becoming neither cold or hot, and failure is a topic that does not generate popularity. Preaching the reality of Israel means the Church has failed, and must step aside! The Church stands in the way as much as Islam! The application of Bible doctrine which separates right from wrong is not a topic that is religiously correct in today's Christianity. It is why the Church has become lukewarm! The fundamental aggressive resistance to error is no longer tolerated in this post Evangelical Christian age where unity has been turned into blasphemy. The time is right for dispensational change! The Fundamentalists have it right again in their fight against the lukewarm milktoast Evangelicals who now dominate main stream Christianity!

The Coming Jewish Kingdom

Psalms 145:10-19

10 All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints shall bless thee.

11 They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power;

12 To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom.

13 Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.

14 The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down.

15 The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season.

16 Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.

17 The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.

18 The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.

19 He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.
