Matthew 7:20

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
KJV

 

 

TRINITY FOUNDATION WARNS OF HINN'S ANTICS

Benny Hinn Ministries dismisses a news report which questioned its fundraising practices, financial accountability, and claims of physical healings. The late Dec. story on NBC's Dateline was the result of a two-year undercover investigation into Hinn and his worldwide ministry. Dateline producers and reporters interviewed former Hinn employees who claimed his main priority is bringing in millions of dollars to finance a lavish personal lifestyle. The report gave details of Hinn's plans to build a $3 million house on the West Coast. It also featured several who claimed to have been healed at Hinn crusades, only to die a short time later. Ole Anthony runs the Trinity Foundation which investigates televangelists. He says Christians need to think twice before supporting Hinn's ministry. "There are thousands…that follow him all over the country [who are] severely disabled in wheelchairs that go because they believe the next crusade is going to be where their healing is going to happen," Anthony says. "Well, that's just not scriptural."...Hinn would not agree to an interview, but a spokesman said Dateline found no incriminating evidence against the ministry. (AgapePress)


Hinn - in a strange growly voice that sounded like Darth Vader from Star Wars - uttered a curse on men and women who "dare to come against this ministry. "I place a curse on every man and every woman that would stretch his hand against this anointing; I curse that man who dares to speak a word against this ministry... "


Television preacher Benny Hinn, whose sales in Christian bookstores in the last year-and-a-half have exceeded those of James Dobson and Charles Swindoll combined, .....


Orlando Christian Center, Dec. 31st, 1989.

"The Spirit tells me - Fidel Castro will die - in the 90's. Oooh my! Some will try to kill him and they will not succeed. But there will come a change in his physical health, and he will not stay in power, and Cuba will be visited of God."

 - Benny Hinn.

 

 

 

There are many reasons for Christians to see we are in the last days of the Church age. Benny Hinn and his buddies is one of the biggest signs why this is the end. His success and popularity reflects the kind of Christianity "born again" professing main stream believers in Christ want, or do not separate themselves from. Christians don't need Dateline to tell them the truth of what this fellow is about. His fruit has long proceeded the Dateline report. I'm sure the reporters thought once the millions of Christian followers of this leader of the Charismatic movement see the truth they will abandon this wolf in sheep's clothing. The truth is they knew all the time! It is what they want the world to believe the Biblical Christ is like! It is their Christ! The "born again" Christ of apostasy.

The Apostate "Born Again" Church

(The Last Church)

Matthew 7:15-23

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

NASA Loses Touch With Shuttle Columbia

NASA Declares an Emergency After Losing Communication With Space Shuttle Columbia Ahead of Landing
The Associated Press
 

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. Feb. 1

NASA declared an emergency after losing communication with space shuttle Columbia as the ship soared over Texas several minutes before its expected landing time Saturday morning.

The shuttle was carrying the first Israeli astronaut and six Americans, and authorities had feared it would be a terrorist target.

Fifteen minutes after the expected landing time, and with no word from the shuttle, NASA announced that search and rescue teams were being mobilized in Dallas and Fort Worth areas.

Inside Mission Control, flight controller hovered in front of their computers, staring at the screens. The wives, husbands and children of the astronauts who had been waiting at the landing strip were gathered together by NASA and taken to separate place.

Columbia was at an altitude of 200,700 feet over north-central Texas at a 9 a.m., traveling at 12,500 mph when mission control lost contact and tracking data.

NASA, while not saying the shuttle had exploded, broken up or crashed, warned that any debris found in the area should be avoided and could be hazardous.

There were reports of debris seen falling.

In 42 years of human space flight, NASA has never lost a space crew during landing or the ride back to orbit. In 1986, space shuttle Challenger exploded shortly after liftoff.

Security had been tight for the 16-day scientific research mission that included the first Israeli astronaut.

Ilan Ramon, a colonel in Israel's air force and former fighter pilot, became the first man from his country to fly in space, and his presence resulted in an increase in security, not only for Columbia's Jan. 16 launch, but also for its landing. Space agency officials feared his presence might make the shuttle more of a terrorist target.

On launch day, a piece of insulating foam on the external fuel tank came off during liftoff and was believed to have struck the left wing of the shuttle.

Leroy Cain, the lead flight director in Mission Control, had assured reporters Friday that engineers had concluded that any damage to the wing was considered minor and posed no safety hazard.

 

 

It is a sad day. The hearts of many go out to the families, and loved ones of the astronauts. They are this generation's Vikings. They are the frontiers men and woman who blazed the trails into new lands. They reawaken the adventurous character of the first polar explorers. We all look up to their courageous spirits of reaching into the unknown. It is always sad when we lose some of them to the hazards of their calling. The danger they face is part of what we admire in them. It is always sad when that danger comes full circle as happened in this tragic event.

Death is as common as birth, and yet man struggles with this the most common of experiences. I have never experienced travel into space, but I will die. We all die! All the knowledge of all the science still can't address the pain of death. The songsters present death as a person who's icy fingers shut down the life sustaining systems of heart and lung. He can't be bribed with silver or gold. It is death itself that sustains his existence, and nothing but death will satisfy him.

God's justice is this grim reaper of the poet's saw. Justice for the wages of sin demands death! All mankind must answer to a holy God for sin. There is only one man in all of human history of whom justice had no claim. Only He could lay down His life as the only perfect sacrifice that can satisfy justice for those He calls His own. The Third Jewish Temple will have an altar where His shed blood will be remembered daily so all of mankind can assess the cost of appeasement to the wages of sin. Death (the second death) in the Bible means eternal condemnation in the lake of fire for all who die without redemption through the Lamb of God. No amount of silver, gold, or self conceived good works can buy off justice. The Bible says only blood will satisfy this grim reaper.

All men, all women, all astronauts, all must face justice if not today then tomorrow. It is the common experience of every individual. This is the pain of death. Only the God of the Bible has the remedy to deal with this pain! God's plan is the only plan that ends death without compromising justice!

 

 

The Pain of Death Ends

1 Corinthians 15:52-58

52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Iraqis Call Shuttle Disaster God's Vengeance

 
Sat February 1, 2003 03:24 PM ET


BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Immediate popular reaction in Baghdad on Saturday to the loss of the U.S. space shuttle Columbia and its seven-member crew -- including the first Israeli in space -- was that it was God's retribution.

"We are happy that it broke up," government employee Abdul Jabbar al-Quraishi said.

"God wants to show that his might is greater than the Americans. They have encroached on our country. God is avenging us," he said.

Iraqis are braced for a possible U.S.-led war to rid their country of any chemical, biological or nuclear weapons it may possess. Iraq denies it has such weapons.

Car mechanic Mohammed Jaber al-Tamini noted Israeli air force Colonel Ilan Ramon was among the dead when the shuttle broke up over the southwestern United States 16 minutes before its scheduled landing.

The 48-year-old Israeli astronaut was a fighter pilot in the Israeli air force. He was the youngest pilot in a team that bombed Iraq's nuclear reactor in 1981. Israel said the reactor was intended to develop nuclear weapons.

"Israel launched an aggression on us when it raided our nuclear reactor without any reason, now time has come and God has retaliated to their aggression," Tamini said.

 

 

God's vengeance has been uttered by every fanatic down through the ages when things seem to be going their way. I'm sure Hitler thought he was such an instrument at the beginning of the last world war. It is the end that measures where God's vengeance has really fallen. These Iraqis will die as did the astronauts, and at death does the end come where God's vengeance will have it's fullness revealed. 

The righteous justice of God demands vengeance. Everyone will be subject to this grim reaper no matter what their religion. No matter what their nationality. No matter what their politics. It is God in all His purity and holiness that must be satisfied, or righteous vengeance will be the result.

It is no small thing to be found guilty of opposing God's heritage. It is no small thing to invoke God's vengeance through vanity. The God of the Bible has made it perfectly clear upon whom His vengeance will abide for all eternity. The Jewish Kingdom is God's plan for the next dispensation. The vengeance of God will abide on all who oppose this coming Jewish Kingdom and it's soon coming King! The end for most will be eternal weeping and gnashing of teeth.

 

 

Psalms 94:1-11
94:1 O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.
2 Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.
3 LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?
4 How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?
5 They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thine heritage.
6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.
7 Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.
8 Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?
9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?
10 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?
11 The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.

Exodus 1:8

8 Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph.
KJV
 

 

IRAQ PLANNED TO POISON ISRAELI WATER SUPPLY



A captured Palestinian intelligence official said he was trained and equipped in Iraq to poison Israeli water sources, according to a report in Israel's la
rgest newspaper Yediot Aharonot.

"I was told to be ready to spread poison in the major Israeli water pipelines, the River Jordan or the Lake of Galilee," said 29 year-old Mohammed Farouq Abu Roub, arrested after a botched attempt to dispatch a suicide bomber to Israel.

Abu Roub, 29, confessed to having received his instructions when undergoing specialized training in Iraq, where he "was given thousands of dollars to carry out mega-attacks."

It was in Iraq that Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, also known as Abu Mazen - the head of the Palestine Liberation Front, and Palestinian Authority leader Arafat heir told him to prepare for the attack on the Israeli water supply - as well as on kindergartens or school buses that would traumatize Israeli parents.

"I want a mega-attack with a lot of casualties that will paralyze the life of Israel," Abu Roub quoted Abu Mazen as saying.

"There was no problem getting weapons, ammunition, poisonous powders," he said. "Everything was in big quantities. There were no limits."
 

 

 

The coming war with Iraq is much more about hate for Jews then anything else. It is the US pushing the grievances of a reluctant UN that has stirred the pot, but it is Israel that Iraq has chosen to be the object of their military and covert actions. The main target is not the military or government officials, but children where ever possible. It is a hate of the darkest hue that the Islamic Iraqis bare against the Jews of Israel.  The scud attacks on Israel in the last war exemplify this point. Israel was a non-combatant, and yet it was Israel that bore the brunt of the scud attacks. This coming war will find the Iraqis doing their worse against Israel again, but this time with their stockpiled chemical and biological weapons. Were the US to wait, it would only give Iraq nuclear weapons to add to the arsenal it will use on Israel. Iraq is not intent on New York City, but on the Jews of Tell Aviv. It bodes well for the US to take this action on behalf of the Jews. It is certain the world would only drag their feet in defense of the Jews.

This may all sound good, but it brings a red herring. The secular Jews will find comfort in depending on gentiles rather then their God for security. Their faith will prove faulty. Politics can change quickly. Israel found this out in Egypt right at the beginning when a Pharaoh who knew not Joseph came to power.

I'm convinced the peace coming on the aftermath of the fall of Saddam is going to be far more dangerous then this soon coming war with Iraq! It will be dangerous for the Jews because when the Islamic Invasion of Ezekiel 38 & 39 takes place the Western world does nothing to defend a peaceful unprepared Israel. It will be dangerous for the world because it will be the next step on the road to the Great Tribulation and Armageddon!

 

 

The Last Jihad

Ezekiel 38:9-19

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;

Captured Hebron terrorists reveal Jihad infrastructure
 

The Shin Bet on Tuesday announced the recent arrests of Islamic Jihad terrorists involved in the ambush at Worshipers Way in Hebron in November and the infiltration of the Otniel yeshiva attacks which claimed the lives of 16 Israelis.

Information gathered from the suspects, who are from the Hebron area, uncovered the widespread military infrastructure of Islamic Jihad, with instructions and funding direct from headquarters in Damascus.

The suspects questioned by the Shin Bet revealed that they received large sums of money from Damascus which was used to purchase the supplies needed for the attacks, as well as for payments to the families of "martyrs" and those captured by security forces.

According to the suspects, the Islamic Jihad headquarters has also instructed them to escalate attacks against Israelis and focus on bombings. The suspects revealed details regarding the purchase chemicals and other components used to prepare bombs. They all underwent weapons training and were instructed to recruit people to perpetrate suicide bombings.


The Flag of Israel Survives


A piece of debris from the space shuttle Columbia, believed to be Col. Ilan Ramon's flag given him from the Israeli Air Force for the flight.

 

 

Despite all the hate of the terrorists, all the hate of Islam, and all the hate of an anti-Semitic gentile world, Israel will survive! This Israeli flag still in the plastic bag in which it went into outer-space remains intact after the horrific crash that destroyed the shuttle. So also will Israel survive the crash that destroys the gentile world during the Great Tribulation. God's plan is not to have Israel lead the gentile world to peace, but rather for Israel to replace the gentile world in an all new dispensational beginning much as Noah and his family led mankind into the new dispensation of his day.

Nothing short of the total destruction of an absolutely corrupted gentile world is what God reveals is coming through the Bible. The engrafted New Testament age of the Church ends, and God again focuses on His natural seed in the next dispensation where both Testaments merge into one. It is difficult for many to conceive that God could be this judgmental, but purity and holiness demand the action. The coming justice of God is right. It is not that the gentile world has lacked being warned! The Great Flood of Noah evidenced around the world shows total destruction of a former age. Most of the fossil record is water laden. It is corrupted science that has turned this evidence of the Great Flood into a billion, billion year event. The truth has been turned into a lie so the warning is nullified to this generation. The Great Tribulation will accomplish what the Great Flood accomplished in bringing in a new dispensation!

After the rapture of the true Church the Bible says it is only Jews who repent, and turn to God. It is only the Jews who experience the character change that comes with a circumcised heart. There is provision for gentiles, but they must be adopted into this new Jewish Kingdom. They must recant of their gentile roots, and become Jews.

Only the Jews have the Promise of Survival

(The Barren Sara and Racial didst Rejoice)

Isaiah 54:1-9
54:1 Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the LORD.
2 Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;
3 For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.
4 Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more.
5 For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.
6 For the LORD hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God.
7 For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.
8 In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the LORD thy Redeemer.
9 For this is as the waters of Noah unto me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.

UN SECURITY COUNCIL SPLIT IN REACTION TO SPEECH


Veto wielding Security Council members Russia, France and China all appeared unconvinced by the findings, advocating a continuation of the inspections process and urging the council to resolve the standoff with Iraq through peaceful means.

But Britain's Foreign Secretary, Jack Straw, backed Powell's call for immediate action against Iraq, telling fellow foreign ministers that the Iraqi debate was "a moment of choice" for the UN.

Iraq's ambassador to the UN, Muhammad al-Douri, told the council after Powell's briefing that the US assertions, "are utterly unrelated to the truth."

"There are incorrect allegations, unnamed sources, unknown sources, assumptions, and presumptions which all fall in line with the American policy," he told journalists in New York.
 

 

 

The war with Iraq is forcing the nations to make a choice. A similar moment of choice is what God is forcing on the world with dispensational change. Every individual will soon be forced to chose between God's righteousness, and worldly freedom to sin. Not many are predicted to side with God. Even Israel must be weaned from the flesh pots of Egypt when the moment of choice is forced on them.

Today, the choice of the nations is really about Israel. The Iraqi threat will effect Israel first, and many nations do not see the Jews of Israel worth involving themselves with this Hitler type despot Saddam. They would just as soon have Saddam do his worst on the Jews before they act for their own self interests. The Russians waited until the Nazis murdered the Jews of the Warsaw Ghetto before they continued the war in Poland. Many of the gentile nations would like to wait similarly for Saddam to get only one or two nuclear bombs earmarked for the Jews of Israel first. Only the US with the largest remnant of God's born again children is standing up as a mostly united front for Israel. This support will change quickly once the remnant are removed at the rapture of the true Church. Dispensational change will find the end of the Church Age, and the beginning of the Kingdom Age. Israel will find no friends in the world after the rapture. They will have one old friend once they turn back to Him. God will prove all powerful once the choices of dispensational change have been made. The gentile world will end, and the Jewish Kingdom will begin!

God Makes His Choice

Ezekiel 20:5-10

5 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day when I chose Israel, and lifted up mine hand unto the seed of the house of Jacob, and made myself known unto them in the land of Egypt, when I lifted up mine hand unto them, saying, I am the LORD your God;

6 In the day that I lifted up mine hand unto them, to bring them forth of the land of Egypt into a land that I had espied for them, flowing with milk and honey, which is the glory of all lands:

7 Then said I unto them, Cast ye away every man the abominations of his eyes, and defile not yourselves with the idols of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

8 But they rebelled against me, and would not hearken unto me: they did not every man cast away the abominations of their eyes, neither did they forsake the idols of Egypt: then I said, I will pour out my fury upon them to accomplish my anger against them in the midst of the land of Egypt.

9 But I wrought for my name's sake, that it should not be polluted before the heathen, among whom they were, in whose sight I made myself known unto them, in bringing them forth out of the land of Egypt.

10 Wherefore I caused them to go forth out of the land of Egypt, and brought them into the wilderness.

Three Jewish Students Who Shook the World

Dr. Rafael Medoff
05 February 2003

Sixty years ago this month, in February 1943, an extraordinary article appeared in a leading American Jewish magazine. The article was so unusual that the editors felt compelled to insert a note at the beginning, stating that the topic “merits public discussion,” even if “there may be disagreement as to some of the methods” proposed by the authors. The topic was America’s response to news of the Holocaust.

In late 1942, the news of Hitler’s genocide had been publicly confirmed, yet the Roosevelt administration continued to insist that nothing could be done to help Europe’s Jews until the end of the war, at which point the Allies would make sure that Nazi war criminals faced appropriate “retribution.” But in February 1943, three young rabbinical students at Conservative Judaism’s Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) took pen in hand to challenge the administration’s position. Their controversial article, which appeared in The Reconstructionist, was titled “Retribution is Not Enough.” Their point was that the U.S. should do much more than merely mete out postwar retribution to war criminals – ways had to be found to rescue Jews immediately.

The article also decried what the authors regarded as the apathy of the mainstream Jewish leadership: "What have the rabbis and leaders... done to arouse themselves and their communities to the demands of the hour?" the article asked, "What have they undertaken to awaken the conscience of the American people?"

Shaken by reports of Nazi atrocities, the trio had established their own student action committee to publicize the news from Europe and prod Jewish leaders to adopt a more activist approach. In December 1942, they recruited rabbinical students from Reform and Orthodox seminaries to join them in a delegation that met with Dr. Stephen Wise, the most prominent American Jewish leader of that era. Wise was not receptive to their suggestions, such as calling for increased Jewish refugee immigration to the United States. He feared such steps might stimulate anti-Semitism. The students left Wise´s office disappointed, yet they were determined to take action even without the Jewish leadership´s approval. ...

 

 

The American Christian leadership of today is as guilty of having betrayed the fundamentals of Bible doctrine, and have sold out Christianity much as the American Jewish leadership of 1943 sold out the Jews of Europe for fear of backlash. The holocaust could have been tempered if not prevented had it been made a priority during the war years. The political correctness of the day was not to raise the issue until after the war was over. Millions of Jewish men, woman, and children were sold out for the sake of this kind of political correctness. The truth was actively suppressed by the opinion of those who deemed it the politically correct thing to do.

Today, millions upon millions of Christians have been sold out by America's Christian leaders who are more concerned about their own success and popularity then they are in the truth. Millions upon millions of  Christians are going to be left behind after the rapture of the true Church because they followed religious correctness rather then truth. A new Christ has been presented to America, and the world through the Charismatic and Evangelical movements. "Born again" has been hijacked by these showmen posing as ministers of God who have been exposed again and again as charlatans. The fickle crowds flock from one fallen hero to the next rather then getting out of these systems of lies and hypocrisies. The Apostate Church that will be destroyed during the Great Tribulation is growing in leaps and bounds today through main stream Christian doctrine. It is really no doctrine! The Biblical doctrines designed by God to separate truth from error have been compromised for the sake of big numbers, and big money. Millions upon millions of Christians believe doctrine is a dirty word which should not be mentioned. Doctrine exposes the Roman Catholic Church as apostate, it exposes charismatic signs and wonders as a lie, and demands God's children to separate from all such blasphemy. Yet, the hand of unity is extended to these blasphemers in today's main stream religiously correct fervor. "Born again" has lost it's meaning, and pagan ecstatic utterance falsely promoted as Biblical speaking in tongues is the greater unifying factor in today's Christianity then the Biblical doctrine of exclusive salvation in Christ alone!

The end of the Christian Church age is near as God prepares to bring in His Jewish Kingdom!

 

 

Come Out

2 Corinthians 6:14-18

14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Hi,

I'm scheduled for surgery on both my eyes tomorrow at Duke University thanks to the VA who will be paying for everything. The Lord has been so good. I retired with nothing including any kind of health insurance. The VA has not only provided a pension which meets my daily expenses, but maybe the best health care available. I had fretted often of what my final end would be, and the Lord had it all worked out from the very beginning.

I'm not sure when I'll be back? You can be sure as soon as I can read I'll be back with my comments on "In The News." I wish I could be more faithful.

Keep checking back with Golden Calf. I know I'll be back soon!

 

Thanks!  DDSrail

 

 

 

 

The eye surgery went miraculously. 1000 zaps in each eye. I did everything today without glasses. This is just astounding! I still have problems with long distance, and fine print focus. But, I can read without glasses! I'm just ecstatic. Thanks for your prayers.

God is truly good!

Fourteen killed in Hajj stampede

At least 14 people have been killed and several others injured in a stampede during the annual Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca, a Saudi official has said.

The official said the incident happened during the symbolic stoning of the devil ritual in Mina, just outside Mecca.

The incident comes despite extra precautions taken by the Saudi authorities to try to prevent a recurrence of the stampedes which have claimed hundreds of lives in recent years.

The pilgrimage, or Hajj, is taking place against the backdrop of a looming war with Iraq, and the authorities have deployed thousands of troops to maintain order.

Journey of a lifetime

HAJJ DISASTERS
2001: 35 people die in stampede during stoning
 
1998: At least 118 trampled to death
 
1997: 343 pilgrims die and 1,500 injured in fire
 
1994: 270 killed in a stampede as worshippers surged forwards during stoning.
 
1990: 1,426 pilgrims killed in overcrowded pedestrian tunnel leading to holy sites
 
1987: 400 die in Iranian-Saudi confrontation
 

"The stampede took place while pilgrims returning to their camps at 1030 (0730 GMT) met pilgrims coming the other way, some pilgrims falling in the dense crowd," said General Abdul Aziz bin Mohammed bin Said.

Those injured were treated at the nearby Mina hospital and two were detained for further treatment.

The dead included six women and nationals from Pakistan, India, Egypt, Iran and Yemen, the AFP agency reported.

More than two million Muslims were taking part in the ritual, after praying at Mount Arafat on Tuesday and collecting pebbles for the stoning.

The pilgrims, many of whom are old and infirm, are emotional and weary by the time they reach the pillars and so are particularly vulnerable, says the BBC's Riz Khan in Jeddah.

They have to pass through a passage way which some say is too narrow considering the huge number of pilgrims involved.

Police and armed guards lined the route to Mina, while armoured vehicles patrolled the roads and helicopters hovered overhead.

The pilgrimage, which takes Muslims in the footsteps of Mohammed, Islam's 7th Century prophet, is the biggest annual mass movement of people on the planet.

In Mina, the devil is represented by three giant concrete pillars.

On Tuesday, pilgrims throw only seven small stones at the first pillar, known as the "big Satan".

The stoning continues over the next three days and after completing the ritual, pilgrims circle the Kaaba - a cube-shaped stone structure at the centre of Mecca's Grand Mosque - seven times.

Then they say farewell prayers and ask God to accept their pilgrimage, which every able-bodied Muslim must make once in a lifetime.

After the stoning ritual, pilgrims may celebrate the start of the Eid al-Adha, or feast of sacrifice, by slaughtering a camel, a cow or a sheep.

 

 

It may surprise many to know this Hajj is not the largest pilgrimage site for the religious. More pilgrims visit St. Bernadette's vision site in Lourdes, France then any other. I remember seeing news footage of old ladies in Mexico City climbing 100 ceremonial raged stone stairs on bloody knees to please some god's image at the top. What kind of god is this Moslem god? What kind of god is this Roman Catholic god? I see old crippled ladies knocked flat on the floor by emotional mystical hyjinks at the Benny Hinn circus TV shows, and wonder what kind of god is this god of the Charismatics? The wheelchairs follow his so called crusades from city to city falsely hoping this crusade will be the one when they get freed from their infirmity.

I am certain this is not the God of the Bible! I am certain any who try to say it is all one god are just so wrong! The God of the Bible could never take pleasure in people going into fanatical rites that cause loss of self control. It is just not His nature. These Charismatic circus shows promote a god not found in the Bible. The Christian mystics that heal one over the TV screens while hundreds of thousands of other expectant seekers remain withering in their pain is not the way the God of the Bible heals.

These are most vicious gods who dangle the downtrodden on a string of vindictiveness. It is reason enough for God to pull the plug on what main stream Christianity tolerates with hardly a whimper. It is not because of the foolish Moslem pillars of stone that God is turning over the next Kingdom to the Jews. It is because the God of the Bible, and main stream Christianity are not the same anymore!

Counter-Terrorism Successes

Israeli security forces, in coordination with the intelligence community, are working overtime to prevent planned terrorist attacks against Jewish targets as the nationwide alert continues. Officials indicated that the closure on Palestinian Authority areas in Judea, Samaria and Gaza will most likely remain in effect at least until this weekend, the end of the Haj period, and after the Moslem holiday of ‘Id al-Adha. Today, however, the internal curfews were lifted in most major cities in Judea and Samaria, with the exception of Hevron and Bethlehem. Meanwhile, overnight and this morning, the IDF has seen several successes in its counter-terrorism activities.

Two terrorists armed with an explosive device were shot and killed by IDF forces near the Gush Katif community of Dugit during the night. Also last night in Gush Katif, a terrorist with an explosives vest in his vehicle was apprehended at Orchen Junction. And yet another terrorist, this time already wearing an explosives vest, was apprehended near the Jewish community of Kedumim, in Samaria. In other counter-terrorist activity, IDF troops continued rounding up wanted suspects throughout Judea, Samaria and Gaza: in Bituniya, in the Ramallah district, three Hamas terrorists were taken into custody; three Tanzim terrorists were apprehended in Balata, in the Shechem district; other arrests were made in the Shechem and Jenin districts; and four PA residents suspected of terrorist activities were arrested at Gush Katif Junction. They were turned over to the custody of the GSS (General Security Service – Shin/Bet).

The Arab terrorist forces, however, continue their assault. Last night, two firebombs were thrown at Israelis at the Yakir Junction in Samaria, gunfire was directed at an IDF training base in the northern Jordan Valley, and a mortar shell was fired at an IDF outpost in Gaza. There were no injuries in any of the incidents.

In a related matter, the current Islamic holiday season has resulted in widespread concern and terrorism alerts in the United States and the United Kingdom. Military and law enforcement efforts are underway to prevent a major attack that intelligence officials fear will coincide with the end of the Haj this week. In England, British soldiers have been deployed at Heathrow international airport, and in New York, police have been warned to be on the lookout for “conventional or improvised weapons” that may be used to spread deadly chemical or biological agents.

 

 

The wild man must be put under restraint! This is the only practical peace plan for Israel today. It is hard, no nonsense treatment of the rebellious heathen in their midst. The Islamic Palestinian Arabs have proven themselves unwilling to seek peaceful solutions, and this harsh treatment is the only alternative. This peace is working when compared to the almost daily terrorist bomb attacks on Jewish civilians of the past. My fear is the peace coming after the war with Iraq will be built around a Palestinian State. The real peace plan that is working will be abandoned. Israel will again have to accept the gentile dictated peace that will replace the practical peace of today.

A false gentile peace for the Holy Land seems coming next! This could be the peace of Ezekiel leading to the Last Jihad, and the end of Islamic influence over the Middle East. Leading to the open door for building the Third Jewish Temple! The world is changing fast! Babylon,  exhaled by the world of merchandise in Revelation, the instrument of the antichrist to control world commerce, seems another phenomenon emerging from the soon coming fall of Saddam. 

The Bible is the only road map that should be followed. It will be the only road map that history will be allowed to follow. Men can resist trying every false trail along the way, but in the end it will be the Jewish Kingdom with Jerusalem as it's capital. The Temple Mount will again host the House of God. It will again have it's importance acknowledged, and all the resistance from those who think they know better will be broken!

 

 

Zion

Psalms 48

48:1 A Song and Psalm for the sons of Ko'-rah.
Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness.
2 Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.
3 God is known in her palaces for a refuge.
4 For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together.
5 They saw it, and so they marvelled; they were troubled, and hasted away.
6 Fear took hold upon them there, and pain, as of a woman in travail.
7 Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.
8 As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it for ever. Selah.
9 We have thought of thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of thy temple.
10 According to thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of righteousness.
11 Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of thy judgments.
12 Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof.
13 Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following.
14 For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.

Plan: US general to run Iraq

In Ankara and Washington, the US outlined its plans for a post-Hussein Iraq. Some Iraqi opposition leaders object.

By Cameron W. Barr | Staff writer of The Christian Science Monitor

SULAYMANIYAH, IRAQ - The head of the US military's Central Command, Gen. Tommy Franks, will rule Iraq in the initial aftermath of a US invasion to overthrow President Saddam Hussein.

Administration officials briefed senators Tuesday on postwar planning, stressing that the US goal is "to liberate Iraq, not to occupy it," and last week a US envoy told leaders of Iraqi groups opposed to Hussein about American intentions.

The senators were told that even under good circumstances, it would take two years before the military could fully transfer control to an Iraqi government. As presented, the plan recalls postwar Germany and Japan, where American military occupations paved the way for transfers of power to democratic and constitutionally backed governments.

Some Iraqi opposition leaders are already attacking the plan, saying it amounts to a US military rule of Iraq that will favor the existing power structure in the country. Instead of turning Iraq into a beacon of democracy in the Middle East, an ambition articulated by some US policymakers, the opposition leaders say the US plan seems designed to ease the fears of Arabs and Turks unhappy with the prospect of a democratic, federal Iraq.

But Barham Salih, prime minister of an enclave in northern Iraq controlled by the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), advises a pragmatic view of the US plan. "Let's not get too hot about this," he said late Tuesday in an interview at his home here. "Who is doing the heavy lifting?"

The answer is, of course, the US, and Mr. Salih's implication is that shouldering the big load brings with it a few prerogatives. He maintains an eyes-on-the-prize approach to the debate over how to run Iraq's affairs immediately after the current leader is removed: "The key thing for us is getting rid of Saddam Hussein."

Some elements of Iraq's fractious opposition, including groups funded by the US, have been determined to form a government-in-waiting in order to ensure that Iraq's sovereignty stays in Iraqi hands. They argue that Iraqis will see even a temporary US administration of Iraq as occupation, engendering anti-American sentiment throughout the Middle East.

Even so, the US has decided to run the country itself, although the structure outlined to Congress and the opposition groups envisions a "consultative council" of Iraqis selected by the US to advise American administrators.

 

 

There are many well meaning folks proposing various plans as to how Iraq (and most importantly Iraqi oil profits) will be administered after Saddam. The problem is the folks who will have control in the end will not have the same motivations of those presently proposing how Iraqi wealth will be administered. There are some who are concerned that Iraqi sovereignty remain in Iraqi hands. My thoughts knowing that a literal Babylon controlling the wealth of the world is predicted in the Book of Revelation is that this could foster the birth of just such a city built on the literal site of ancient Babylon. A city initially proposed to maintain Iraqi sovereignty, but in the end controlled by the antichrist who will be the future leader of the Western World.

I'm sure General Franks will have the best of intensions as he assumes his responsibilities after the war. It is who will come after General Franks that the Bible says we should watch! The whole Middle East is in the process of massive change. God is bringing in His next dispensation which is centered in the Holy Land, and so such change should not be a surprise. I suspect it will not just be Iraqi oil that will finance the growth of Babylon, but all Middle East oil! I suspect a Hitler/Antiochus leader of the West will continue keeping control of this wealth from the Islamic Arabs under a cleverly orchestrated global peace plan.

No one but God knows how the history of the Middle East will progress. What is known is that 2003 will be a critical year to major change! I watch the news, and read my Bible. I fully expect the false peace leading to the Great Tribulation is now blowing in the winds of change!

The end of the antichrist's Babylon will be horrific as God establishes Jerusalem as the capital of His Kingdom!

 

 

Babylon has a Beginning, and an End

Revelation 14:7-11

7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

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

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

Pat Robertson to Undergo Surgery for Prostate Cancer
February 13, 2003

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA -- Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson told his television audience today that his doctors had discovered that he had prostate cancer. After extensive tests, it has been determined that the cancer does not appear to have metastasized beyond the prostate.

Doctors have scheduled surgery on Monday, February 17th to remove his prostate. The surgeon who will perform the operation has pioneered the relatively new technique of radical laparoscopic prostatectomy in the United States.

Barring any unforeseen difficulties, his doctors anticipate that Robertson, who will be 73 in March, will be returning to a full schedule within two weeks.

Dr. Robertson and his family appreciate your faithful prayers during this time, and thank God for the healing He will provide in the days ahead.

 

 

I suppose it is appropriate for this ordained Southern Baptist "religious broadcaster" who built a multi-million dollar family enterprise by merchandising the Lord Jesus Christ as a mystic healer  should now suffer from a cancer. It is a little thing right now, and money is no object when it comes to his personal need of healing. A condition most of his gullible victims did not have available for themselves.

Old age has a humbling effect on even the most disillusioned. Saddam is facing the end of his visions of grandeur with failing health. The US seems intent on cutting short his old age, but time will always be the final judge of the proud.

I would suspect Pat Robertson holds the record for claimed mystic healings. He redefined the Biblical term "word of knowledge" almost single handed. It is now a direct revelation from god to a TV host or hostess about a mystic healing god had just tossed out to the seeking crowds. (It is like throwing out a handful of pennies to a great crowd of children all exuberantly hoping they will be able to grab one.) The victim is expected to acknowledge the healing or lose it. The healed are also expected to send money as a common courtesy.

I only wonder how many healed prostrates have been given out by "words of knowledge" lately? I wonder if Pat will claim one for himself, and save the doctors their time?

I wonder how long the Southern Baptists will let this huckster use them as another authenticating source of his ill gotten gains?

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

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

Millions Join World Protests Against Iraq War

Reuters
Saturday, February 15, 2003; 4:03 PM

By Paul Majendie and Ellen Wulfhorst

LONDON/NEW YORK (Reuters) - More than six million demonstrators turned out across the world on Saturday in a wave of protest supporting international leaders in urging the United States not to rush into a war against Iraq.

From Canberra to Cape Town, from Karachi to Chicago, people from all walks of life took to the streets to pillory President Bush as a bloodthirsty warmonger in the biggest demonstration of 'people power' since the Vietnam War.

The largest outcry against war occurred in the European countries whose leaders have vocally supported Bush's position at the United Nations.

A million people marched the streets of Rome, 1.3 million paraded in Barcelona, two million in Madrid, and in New York, officials estimated the turnout there at 250,000.

At least half a million marched in London, creating a major headache for Prime Minister Tony Blair, Bush's closest ally.

"I hope this demonstration will show Muslims it is our government that wants the war, not the British people," said protester Richard Shirres, rallying in London with his six-year-old son. London Mayor Ken Livingstone said the rally was the largest peace demonstration in British political history.

Bush and Blair suffered a setback on Friday to their efforts to win international backing for early military action to rid Iraq of suspected weapons of mass destruction in a dramatic showdown at the United Nations.

France, Russia, China, Germany and other nations said U.N. weapons inspections should continue in statements that seemed set to slow the introduction of a resolution the United States and Britain want to authorize the use of force.

French Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin boasted of a triumph in France's efforts to brake Washington's push for war after the French foreign minister won applause for his call for at least another month of inspections.

 

 

The war with Iraq was never about what Saddam might do to New York City any more then it is about what Saddam might do to London, Rome, Madrid, Paris, or any of the other centers of protest. The war with Iraq is all about what Saddam will do to Tel Aviv at his very first opportunity. The war with Iraq is about what an aging Saddam thinking about martyrdom for his nation will do with his first nuclear bomb once assembled. The people of the world do not care anymore then the governments that represent them what Saddam will do to the Jews of Israel. The world would politically tie the hands of the Jews, and then let them fend for themselves. The United States has long been the only friend Israel has in the world. I'm sure should the US ever withdraw support for Israel she will stand alone!

The peace protests are a rouge to the real issue of prevalent attitudes toward the Jews, and what they represent from a Biblical perspective. There is a hate that stirs up in the depraved hearts of evil people when the prospect of true Biblical righteousness is presented. The world hates the thought of a puritanical God taking control. The coming dispensation is just such a reality. It will be all about the Kingdom of God centered in a Jewish Kingdom with Jerusalem as it's capital, and the Third Jewish Holy Temple with a throne from where holy righteousness will be administered!

I can't help but feel the peaceful protesters of today will be in similar crowds clinching their fists blaspheming God during the last days of the Great Tribulation when Babylon falls!

 

 

The Phony Peace Crowd

Revelation 16:17-21

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.

Armageddon asteroids 'best kept secret'

15 February 2003

A scientific adviser to the United States government has suggested that secrecy might be the best option if scientists were ever to discover that a giant asteroid was on course to collide with Earth.

In certain circumstances, nothing could be done to avoid such a collision and ensuing destruction, and it would be best not to tell the public anything, said Geoffrey Sommer, of the Rand Corporation in Santa Monica, California.

"When a problem arises with high uncertainty, there is an opportunity to spin the problem to avoid global panic. If you can't do anything about a warning, then there is no point in issuing a warning at all," Dr Sommer told the association yesterday.

"If an extinction-type impact is inevitable, then ignorance for the populace is bliss. As a matter of common sense, if you can't intercept it and you can't move people out of the way in time, there's nothing you can do in terms of reducing the costs of the potential impact," he said.

"Overreaction not just by the public but by policy-makers scurrying around before the thing actually hits because we can't do anything about it anyway ... to a large extent you are better off not adding to your social costs," said Dr Sommer, who is also an adviser on terrorism.

The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa) is conducting a 25-year survey of the sky to find asteroids wider than a kilometre which could have a devastating impact if they collided with Earth.

So far they have determined the orbits of about 60 per cent of these objects and none so far have a trajectory that threatens the world within the next couple of centuries, said David Morrison of Nasa's Ames laboratory in Moffat Field, California.

"There are, however, many things out there that we know nothing about," he said.

 

 

"None so far." Do you believe there are "none so far" from a fellow who just said "there is no point in issuing a warning at all." It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize this pompous NASA official has a problem with truth telling. He thinks he must make the critical decisions for all the little people who didn't rise to his exalted position of patrimony.  I'm just guessing David Morrison and Geoffrey Sommer are liberal democrats!

What can be gleaned from this amazing revelation is that science, and the media will not be the places to go for understanding when the events of the Great Tribulation begin. The spirit of secretism is apparently present. The spin to make things appear better then what they really are is also here.

These are the same pompous folks who convinced the world there is no controlling God, but rather billions of years of chance evolution. These are the folks who keep secret all the real science that makes billions of years an impossibility (like the frequency of killer asteroids)! These are the folks who spin the truth of DNA programming by a God of immeasurable intelligence as mere chance occurrence which even the greatest of computers come short in ability to understand. These are the folks who duped the public into becoming pagans believing in Mother Nature rather then the God of the Bible.

The time is right for dispensational change. The time is right for judgment of the pompous liars who used science for their own personal political gains. 

The Bible is the only source of truth, and it says the Great Tribulation is near!

 

 

The Great Tribulation

Revelation 8:7-13

7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
13 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!

20 Deaths Blamed on Eastern Blizzard

Today: February 17, 2003 at 11:30:38 PST

By JASON STRAZIUSO
ASSOCIATED PRESS

The worst blizzard to hit the mid-Atlantic and central Appalachian states in seven years shut down much of the region on Presidents Day with windblown snow that piled up as much as 4 feet deep, halting air and some rail travel and killing at least 20 people.

 

 

I only wonder to what the radical ignoramuses of 1902 attributed their record breaking snow fall? I'm not sure if the next Ice Age was the topic for radical dooms day fear used back then or not? I'm sure the global warming radical ignoramuses of today will convince the gullible that this blizzard can somehow be turned into proof of ozone depletion and global warming.  I couldn't begin to estimate how many thousands of dollars the average American family has lost in higher prices just to appease these radicals? I'm sure the total for all families is far more then what the war with Iraq will cost. It may well be ten or twenty fold more. Money thrown away for pseudo-science that will never happen. I only wonder who invented this global warming fear tactic, and to what purpose?

It amazes me how seeming rational people can become so intense about a dooms day coming from pollution, but never give the Bible a second thought where the real dooms day is explicitly laid out. This world of the gentiles will not end because of global warming. It will end because of sin, and resistance to the next planned dispensation by the God of the Bible.

A Jewish King is returning to rule with an iron rod of righteousness. The gentiles will never submit to His puritanical administration of the whole world, and their resistance will be their death. God is about to force the world to choose! The Valley of decision is near! A Jewish King administering Jewish righteousness, or death! Armageddon predicts the gentile choice on that fateful day!

There will be no need for a Newer Testament to guide the faithful in that day. The present Old and New Testaments will flow together as all the promises and intent of both find perfect fullness in the Messiah/Christ. A final age of righteousness is what God is preparing today. The Jews are back in the Holy Land, and the Middle East is about to change in a very radical way right before our eyes this very year. Nothing can stop God from bringing in the Jewish Kingdom age!

Valley of Jehoshaphat

Joel 3:9-21

9 Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up:
10 Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong.
11 Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD.
12 Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.
13 Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.
14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.
15 The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.
16 The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.
17 So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.
18 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the LORD, and shall water the valley of Shittim.
19 Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land.
20 But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation.
21 For I will cleanse their blood that I have not cleansed: for the LORD dwelleth in Zion.

US concern as Iranian-backed troops enter Iraq

By Najmeh Bozorgmehr in Tehran and Guy Dinmore in Washington

Published: February 18 2003 21:48 | Last Updated: February 18 2003 21:48

Iranian-backed Iraqi opposition forces have crossed into northern Iraq from Iran with the aim of securing the frontier in the event of war, according to senior Iranian officials.

The forces, numbering up to 5,000 troops, with some heavy equipment, are nominally under the command of Ayatollah Mohammad Baqir al-Hakim, a prominent Iraqi Shia Muslim opposition leader who has been based in Iran since 1980 and lives in Tehran.

A US State Department official said he was aware of reports that part of Ayatollah Hakim's Badr brigade had crossed into northern Iraq but declined further comment. Analysts close to the administration of President George W. Bush said the US was concerned about the intentions of this new element in an increasingly complicated patchwork of forces in northern Iraq.

Turkey has long had a limited military presence in northern Iraq, and US special forces began moving into the region several months ago. The Badr brigade has been trained and equipped by Iran's Revolutionary Guards and could be regarded as a proxy force of the Iranian government.

Iranian officials insist that force's role in the north is defensive but its presence will exacerbate the concerns of the US and especially the Arab world that military intervention in Iraq will lead to a permanent disintegration of the country. Through inserting a proxy force, Iran is underlining that it cannot be ignored in future discussions over Iraq's make-up.

Ayatollah Hakim's forces had previously been based in southern Iran, close to Iraq. Two months ago they began moving into the area of northern Iraq governed by the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), one of two Kurdish parties that rule an area the size of Switzerland outside Baghdad's control.

 

 

I had long thought Iran and Iraq would join together in the coming Islamic invasion of Israel. I've rethought my conclusions with the unveiling of current events, and further examination of the Bible. The Eastern prong of the three pronged Islamic invasion is clearly Iran. That will never change. It is called by it's ancient name Persia when Ezekiel describes the invasion in Ezekiel 38.  What is new for me is the probability that Iraq (old Babylon) is going to go in a different direction.

The sons of Ishmael have today taken the ancient kingdoms of Babylon and Persia for themselves. Daniel the great Jewish prophet saw how the gentile kingdoms would rule the world from his day (the destruction of the First Jewish Temple) until the end of the gentile age (the building of the Third Jewish Temple). It is all about the rise and fall of kingdoms. A great image was given King Nebuchadnezzar in a dream in which Daniel identified him as the head of gold. The breast and arms of silver represented Persia which was the next great gentile power. Today, ancient Babylon may be about to emerge again (Babylon of Revelation) as another head of gold. The wealth of Middle East oil may provide the antichrist with the wealth he will need to control the economy of the world. The sons of Ishmael seem about to go in two directions. One group may represent the moderate Arabs who will compromise with the antichrist for a share of his wealth while the others will become even more radical uniting in hate against the Jews.

We may well be witnessing in the changes taking place in the Middle East of 2003 the rise again of ancient Babylon, and ancient Persia? It is something to watch as God prepares to release the stone that will destroy all kingdoms establishing His final Kingdom of righteousness!

Something is blowing in the winds of 2003?

 

 

Kingdoms of the Gentiles

Daniel 2:31-35

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.

IRAQ: CHIRAC THREATENS EAST EUROPEANS OVER SUPPORT FOR US


EU expansion becomes latest hostage to Iraqi crisis



After a week in which the UN and NATO both threatened to tear themselves apart over the Iraqi crisis, an EU emergency summit in Brussels aimed at bridging widening divisions within the 15 state Union ended in acrimony as the French President undiplomatically lambasted eastern Europe states for backing the US stance on Iraq.

The extraordinary outburst from France's Jacques Chirac sent shock waves throughout European diplomatic circles as he effectively told 13 prospective EU states from the east that their future membership of the Union could be in jeopardy because of their support for the American-led military action to depose Saddam Hussein.

With the EU's five biggest nations set against each other (France and Germany on one side, and Britain, Spain and Italy on the other), British diplomatic sources argued that the eastern Europeans were excluded from the Brussels summit at Paris' request.

In what has been seen as a battle between 'old' and 'new' Europe, the prospective EU member states were branded "childish" by Chirac for apparently following the lead of Britain and America over that of France and Germany- the EU's traditional political powerhouse.

France was already concerned that the former communist countries would become America's Trojan horse within both the EU and NATO, since they view the US as the more reliable guarantor of their security than other European nations.

Nevertheless it appears as though the publishing of two letters in which Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary were joined in opposition to the French position by the "Vilnius 10" (a group ten smaller Baltic and Balkan states), really triggered Chirac's ire.

Chirac described the behavior of EU candidate countries as "dangerous". Joining the EU takes some consideration and consultation, he said, and these countries were reckless and not very well behaved.

"They missed a great opportunity to shut up," he chided, adding that their pro-American stance could feed public hostility to EU expansion.

Speaking to journalists in Downing Street, London - the embattled Blair, fending off his lowest opinion rating in the British polls since his 1997 landslide victory, made it clear that it was Chirac who was behaving recklessly, not the eastern Europeans.

"I hope that no one is suggesting that they should be anything other than full members of the EU and fully entitled to express their views," he said scathingly.

"People who want to pull Europe and America apart are playing the most dangerous game of international politics I know."

Despite widespread anti-war protests over the weekend, and significant opposition in the UN Security Council on Friday, Britain and America still insist that they intend to table a further UN resolution, declaring Iraq in "material breach" of its weapons commitments and authorizing the use of force.
 

 

 

It appears the EU may be reshuffled as an aftermath of the war with Iraq. 2003 is turning into a very extraordinary year as radical political changes are in the wind. It is not just the Middle East, but also the Western alliances that all seem up for grabs in 2003. The Bible says the Lord Jesus Christ will return to establish His Kingdom by destroying the ten gentile toes of iron and clay as described in Daniel. These ten toes will be ten Western confederacy kingdoms led by the antichrist if the fundamentalists are right in Bible interpretation.

Many of the old fundamentalists (like the old Europe) follow the turn-coat Van Impe who committed his reputation to the position that the ten toes have already been formed. He stopped counting when the EU reached 10 nations claiming fulfillment. All additions do not count according to this ex-fundamentalist turned neo-evangelical of the worst sort. He can lay in the bed he made with the present Pope as he struggles to keep Evangelical/Roman Catholic money flowing into his coffers. The new fundamentalists are still waiting in anticipation for God to reveal who the final ten toes will be as history marches on. The left behind crowd basically follow Van Impe, and will also find themselves left with egg on their face as history does march on.

I watch the literal Babylon of old as Saddam is removed from the forward march of history. I watch the literal Tyre of all places which was connected to Satan and merchandising in Ezekiel. I watch for a swath from Tyre (Beirut) to Babylon (Baghdad) becoming the future banking capital for the antichrist's kingdom. Well, I'm getting as bad as Van Impe now!  I guess I'll  just wait and watch.

I think it may be time to get rid of the old, and start looking to the new as comparisons of contemporary history and Bible prophecy are considered! It appears to me that the new Armageddon book is really a part of the old egg in your face crowd even before publication.

 

 

Daniel 2:40-49

40 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.
41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.
42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.
43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.
46 Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet odours unto him.
47 The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.
48 Then the king made Daniel a great man, and gave him many great gifts, and made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon, and chief of the governors over all the wise men of Babylon.
49 Then Daniel requested of the king, and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, over the affairs of the province of Babylon: but Daniel sat in the gate of the king.

Deuteronomy 10:16

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

 

Elwood Mcquaid, Chief Missionary

"While some Christian supporters of Israel do not try to convert Jews, others feel that their agenda will not be complete until large numbers of Jews are converted to Christianity." So says missionary fighter Rabbi Tovia Singer - and Elwood Mcquaid, who is featured prominently on the Jerusalem Post Radio internet website, is one of these latter: a pro-Israel major-league missionary leader who specifically targets Jews for conversion to Christianity.

The founder of Friends of Israel Gospel Ministries - which is second-largest only to "Jews for Jesus" in the field of missionary organizations directed at Jews worldwide - Mcquaid "has dedicated his life to evangelizing the Jewish people," Singer says. "If Elwood's 'Friends of Israel' are Israel's friends," says Mark Powers, American Director of Magen International Counter-Missionary Organization, "then Israel doesn't need friends. His whole life, including his support for Israel, is dedicated only to targeting Jews for conversion."

The Philadelphia College of Bible offers a Jewish Missions Program, which, according to its website, "equips the student with the necessary understanding and tools for ministry among God's chosen people. The first year of study is completed in [Mcquaid's] Friends of Israel Institute of Jewish Studies." This latter school, according to *its* website, is "designed especially for those who want to study the Bible from a Jewish perspective and who desire to minister to Jewish people." The Jewish Mission Program offers "extensive field experience [and] service with an approved organization which ministers primarily to Jewish people."

Rabbi Singer, of messiahtruth.com and outreachjudaism.org , notes that the Philadelphia College of Bible does "an excellent job in preparing their students for proselytizing the Jewish people. [It is] one of the few that trains and gives degrees in the science of converting Jews. Others are Moody Bible College and Fuller Theological Seminary." He said that though Mcquaid recently shifted his focus towards supporting Israel, "his work in converting Jews has not abated at all."

Mcquaid is the author of a book entitled "Zvi," which recounts the life story of a Holocaust survivor who immigrated to Israel, where he converted to Christianity and decided to devote the rest of his life to converting other Jews.

"Elwood Mcquaid is highly political and well-connected," writes Singer, "and has been at the forefront of the successful struggle to defeat anti-missionary legislation in the Knesset." In 1997, then-Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu assured Mcquaid that he would work to thwart a bill forbidding "inducement for religious conversion" and setting a one-year jail term for those who print, import, or possess items containing such inducement. Mcquaid discusses political issues related to Israel on the Jerusalem Post Radio website.

Jeffrey Goldberg, writing in New York Magazine in 1995, explained how Mcquaid took advantage of Jews' refusal to forget the Holocaust in order to "convert" them:
"In a fundraising letter, [Mcquaid] stated that Holocaust Memorial ceremonies are an ideal place to convert Jews. He wrote, 'The Month of Remembrance is a critical time for ministry to Jewish people... a fruitful time for witness as Jewish hearts are open to the Lord... Thousands of mourners, including many Jewish and Israeli young people, will return to the Polish towns where their ancestors lived, and visit the ghettos and death camps where they perished... On these solemn occasions, the Friends of Israel will come alongside these grieving people, comforting them in the Spirit of Christ... By God's grace, we will bring them God's message of true comfort and hope: the wonderful news of a living Messiah! … The saddest thing about the Holocaust survivors is that their bodies are alive but their spirits are annihilated. Liberal Judaism doesn't have answers for them. The Orthodox have more answers, maybe, but Jesus Christ is the best option," Heaven forbid.

 

 

Heaven forbid that Jewish hearts do not harden when God calls to each individually to follow Him. Everything happening in the Middle East today has the goal of once again circumcising the hearts of the Jews. Heaven forbid Jews like Rabbi Singer become so filled with ancient hates, and destructive traditions that they will be unable to respond when God begins calling the Jews back to the Bible. Elwood McQuaid and all the Jewish converts will be no problem to Rabbi Singer. They are soon to be raptured (stepping aside during the dispensational change) with all true born again believers in Christ the Messiah as one dispensation ends, and another begins. What Rabbi singer faces is a coming revival that will reject his legalistic Judaism, and cause Jews to return to Old Testament Levitical Judaism through humbled hearts. There will be no need for laws jailing any who will not convert because it will be a movement of the heart not strength of arms. It will not be by force, but by submission to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that Jews will change the face of Israel. In this process they will change the face of the world. Biblical righteousness will rule as all the religions of man will be judged corrupt. God is bringing the whole world back to the Bible. Heaven forbid it will be with kicking and screaming as Rabbi Singer's anti-missionary legislation would do, but rather allowing all Jews to follow their own hearts with no restrictions!

The Islamic nations of the gentiles following Allah and the Koran put into jail, and put to death the missionaries because only by force of arms does Islam have a future. They have stopped any movement of the heart before it can even start. They have done their best to prevent God from turning the hearts of their brothers to meekness and humility. Heaven forbid Rabbi Singer force his personal legalistic form of Judaism on the nation following their example!

 

 

The Future of Israel

Deuteronomy 30:5-11

5 And the LORD thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers.
6 And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.
7 And the LORD thy God will put all these curses upon thine enemies, and on them that hate thee, which persecuted thee.
8 And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the LORD, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day.
9 And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers:
10 If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.
11 For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off.

Analysis / Saudi Arabia is upping its fight
against extremism

By Daniel Sobelman, Haaretz Correspondent

In recent weeks there has been a marked increase in the Saudi Arabian struggle against radical Islam, an extremist phenomenon that has become more prevalent in the past two years both in the desert kingdom and worldwide, and has made Saudi Arabia the target of international criticism.

The repercussions of the September 11 attacks against the United States and the impending war in Iraq have forced Saudi Arabia to prepare for the changes that are likely to occur in the Middle East.

Various Saudi princes educated in the West admit the need for change. In fact, Crown Prince Abdullah is particularly open to the necessity to implement changes in the kingdom.

Riyadh has begun to take measures to curb the tone taken by Islamic extremists, some of which comes from within the royal family itself. Saudi newspapers have begun voicing criticism of suicide bombings in Israel, and the London-based Saudi daily al-Shark al-Awsat - one of the most important Arab-language papers - has attempted, albeit unsuccessfully, to land an interview with Foreign Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The new Saudi-owned satellite channel Al-Arabiya went on the air Thursday and will try to serve as a alternative to the Qatari-based Al-Jazeera satellite news channel.

Furthermore, Saudi advisor Adel Jaber made another recent visit to Washington, where he met with Vice President Dick Cheney and other senior administration officials. U.S. sources recently informed their Israeli counterparts of their satisfaction with the level of cooperation provided by Saudi Arabia in the war on terror.

The internal Saudi arena is also discussing a recruitment of local newspapers for a campaign to curb Islam and reject extremist elements that call the authorities into question. Saudi Arabia has no choice: Islamic extremists carried out two attacks in the kingdom this week. On Thursday, a British national was shot dead in Riyadh and earlier in the week a senior Saudi official was killed.

While in the past Saudi Arabia has hidden behind a variety of excuses, in recent days a new approach seems to be emerging. Prince Talal, who is remembered as the one who angered former New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani when, after the 9/11 attacks, he accused Israel of being responsible for terror, announced last week that "oppressive regimes" that have emerged in the Middle East are actually responsible for terrorism.

 

 

The changing face of the Middle East is why the Saudis are scrambling to find a future. 9/11 has waken the sleeping giant. The mostly Arab countries of the Middle East are now being forced to chose. They can follow their cultural instincts into radicalism, or become globalized (Westernized) moderates. There is a big picture forcing it's way through all these issues now pressed on the Saudis. The big picture is centered in the Third Jewish Temple.

The world has it's own road map that would keep the status quo expecting Israel to forget about ever building a Temple, and expecting moderate Islamic Arabs to accept an un-enforced Israeli sovereignty over the Temple Mount. This is a road map that will never work!

God has already revealed His future plans for the Temple Mount. His plan is to allow the Jews to build His house one more time on that one single place. The radical Islamic hordes will be destroyed in Ezekiel 38 & 39 when they resist God's plan. The moderate Islamic Arabs will cut a deal with the antichrist for a share of wealth unimaginable, but will find the antichrist only turns on them in the end. The antichrist turns on all in the end. They are all used by this coming fiend as he leads the world to Armageddon! The radicals of Islam are soon to invade Israel ending their influence over the Middle East forever. The building of Babylon after the fall of Saddam may well be the function of the moderate Islamic Arab governments now forming. They will agree to a peace treaty between the antichrist and the Jews allowing the Temple to be built.

The big picture is what God reveals in the Bible.

 

 

My House the Third Temple

Zechariah 1:14-21

14 So the angel that communed with me said unto me, Cry thou, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy.
15 And I am very sore displeased with the heathen that are at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction.
16 Therefore thus saith the LORD; I am returned to Jerusalem with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the LORD of hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem.
17 Cry yet, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; My cities through prosperity shall yet be spread abroad; and the LORD shall yet comfort Zion, and shall yet choose Jerusalem.
18 Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and behold four horns.
19 And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What be these? And he answered me, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.
20 And the LORD shewed me four carpenters.
21 Then said I, What come these to do? And he spake, saying, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man did lift up his head: but these are come to fray them, to cast out the horns of the Gentiles, which lifted up their horn over the land of Judah to scatter it.
KJV

Zechariah 3:7-10

7 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk among these that stand by.

8 Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH.

9 For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.

10 In that day, saith the LORD of hosts, shall ye call every man his neighbour under the vine and under the fig tree.

Joseph's Tomb Gravestone Destroyed

The Arab destruction of Joseph's Tomb is practically complete. Some time in the past two weeks, Arab vandals hacked away at the large two-meter stone marking the gravesite of the Biblical figure, leaving barely more than a pile of rubble.

Chief IDF Rabbi Brig.-Gen. Yisrael Weiss recently visited the site in Shechem, and discussed its current sorry state with regional IDF commanders. The tomb, under Israeli jurisdiction according to the Oslo Accords, was taken over by Arab mobs when the PLO initiated its ongoing terrorist war.

The Moslem occupiers initially desecrated Joseph's monument and destroyed religious books inside the tomb compound, before proclaiming it a mosque. It was liberated by the IDF during last April's Operation Defensive Shield. Currently, even though Israeli authority has been restored to the site, no Israeli worshipers are allowed to visit, and the holy site is not regularly guarded. Several members of the Chassidic Breslover sect have been arrested attempting to reach the tomb, although many have successfully reached it.

The Od Yosef Chai Yeshiva, located for many years at the holy site, issued a press release demanding the "immediate safeguarding of Yosef's Tomb by the IDF, the ability to worship there again, and the return, finally, of Yeshivat Od Yosef Chai, which was expelled from there at the outbreak of the current Oslo War."

 

 

The secular Jews try to wash their hands of responsibility. They do their best to distance themselves from the conflict between the Koran and the Bible. The result is destruction of artifacts that really belong to the world by these fanatical Islamic Arabs. The Palestinians think by destroying every artifact under their control relating to the Bible that they can end all Biblical claims to the Holy Land. Artifacts that have endured thousands of years of Middle East wars are now being systematically destroyed. I remember a mosaic of King David discovered in Gaza on the floor of a Byzantine Church just before the Oslo accords that was gouged into oblivion by the Palestinians as soon as they assumed control of the strip. All we have today are pictures the archaeologists took of this wondrous find. These same Palestinians planned, and are still planning to build a massive mosque on the front lawn of the Church of Nativity that will obscure the Church. I'm sure Church entrances will be blocked, and access will be restricted with the hope the Church of Nativity will be forgotten over time.

What the Palestinians are doing to Josephs Tomb is what they are doing to the Temple Mount. It exemplifies what they would do to the Lord Jesus Christ should He ever show His face in their controlled territories. These are the people asking the world courts to give them a homeland in the Holy Land. A secular world which much like the secular Jewish politicians cares nothing for the Bible, or the God of the Bible.

Soon, God will express His jealousy against such attitudes toward His Holy Name and places. It is a fearsome future for the Palestinians. The apathy of a secularized world will soon find the wrath of the God of the Bible is real!

God is about to change dispensations focusing on Israel, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount!

 

 

 

Joel 2:18-24

18 Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.
19 Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen:
20 But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill savour shall come up, because he hath done great things.
21 Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things.
22 Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength.
23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.

It's Official: Arabs Destroy Joseph's Tomb

The destruction of Joseph's Tomb of the past two weeks is now "official." Prime Minister Sharon and Defense Minister Mofaz confirmed at this morning's Cabinet meeting Arutz-7's report of the end of last week: Arab vandals entered the holy site in Shechem sometime in the past two weeks and turned the large stone marking Joseph's grave into a pile of rubble. The two smaller stones on either side of the gravestone, known as Ephraim and Menashe, were left basically intact.

Minister Natan Sharansky called upon the Foreign Ministry to publicize photos of the destroyed site. "If we would have razed the gravesite of one of the founders of Islam," Sharansky said, "billions of Moslems would have taken to the streets. It's inconceivable that the world should not know about this travesty." Foreign Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Sharon said they would in fact publicize the photos.
 

 

 

It is no little thing that the burial place of Joseph is in the news! The Palestinians have destroyed the burial site that was established by Joshua over 3000 years ago. They have signed their fate. The pain and suffering of these heathen interlopers is self inflicted. Their hate for the Jews reflects their hate for the God of the Bible. It was God who brought the Jews the first time into the Holy Land, and that same God has brought them back today! The original Canaanite heathen have gone into oblivion because they would not submit to the God of the Bible. They would not submit to God's plan to bring a Savior into the world. They suffered pain, and eventual condemnation because they would not submit.

The heathen Palestinians of today face the same fate. God again is implementing His plan tied to the Holy Land. This time the Savior is coming again! The plan is the next dispensation of the Jewish Kingdom. The whole world will be required to submit to the coming Jewish Messiah/King who will rule from the Holy Land. He will make Jerusalem His capital, and the Temple Mount with the Third Jewish Temple as the site of His throne. The Davidic Kingdom will come to full fruition as both Old and New Testaments become one!

It is no little thing that the Palestinians destroyed Joseph's burial site this past week. They have set their fate with a down decision against the coming Jewish Messiah! It is no little thing that with the fall of Saddam the face of the Middle East will change forever. God is forcing His plan on a resistant world. An up or down decision about the Lord Jesus Christ will seal the fate of all the heathen of all religions. Salvation by faith in Christ, or eternal condemnation is what God is doing "In The News" as the Old Testament once again comes to life in today's news!

The Shekinah glory is coming again to dwell in the Third Jewish Temple!

 

 

By Faith Joseph's Bones Were Buried

Exodus 13:18-22

18 But God led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed out of the land of Egypt.

19 And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him: for he had straitly sworn the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you; and ye shall carry up my bones away hence with you.

20 And they took their journey from Succoth, and encamped in Etham, in the edge of the wilderness.

21 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night:

22 He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people.
KJV


Joshua 24:31-32

31 And Israel served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that overlived Joshua, and which had known all the works of the LORD, that he had done for Israel.

32 And the bones of Joseph, which the children of Israel brought up out of Egypt, buried they in Shechem, in a parcel of ground which Jacob bought of the sons of Hamor the father of Shechem for an hundred pieces of silver: and it became the inheritance of the children of Joseph.
KJV

22 By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.

Turkey's Cabinet Discusses U.S. Troops for Iraq Operation

Monday, February 24, 2003
associated press

ISTANBUL, Turkey  — Turkey's Cabinet held a special session Monday to discuss a U.S. request to base tens of thousands of troops in Turkey for a possible invasion of neighboring Iraq, a Turkish official said.

Turkey's leaders have been delaying a decision for weeks, saying Turkey and the United States had still not agreed on the conditions of any deployment.

The Cabinet was discussing the U.S. basing requests in a special session Monday and was considering asking parliament for the necessary permission for the U.S. troops to be deployed, a Turkish official said on condition of anonymity.

With U.S. and Turkish officials still in talks Monday, it was unclear if there would be an announcement after the Cabinet meeting.

"We're working in a comprehensive way to come to an agreement," U.S. Ambassador Robert Pearson told reporters after talks Monday morning at the foreign ministry.

Turkey's Foreign Minister Yasar Yakis said Sunday that lawmakers were likely to vote Tuesday on allowing U.S. combat troops in the country.

Delays by Turkey raised doubts about using this key U.S.-NATO ally to open a northern front against Iraq. A two-front attack would likely divide Iraqi forces and shorten any war.

Cargo ships carrying tanks for the U.S. Army's 4th Infantry Division are already waiting off Turkey's coast to deliver supplies for an operation and the United States is pressing for a quick response from Turkey.

Yakis said Sunday that only a few outstanding issues remained with the United States, including an immediate "bridge credit" that would be handed over at the start of a war since U.S. congressional approval for the aid package could take weeks.

Turkey tentatively supports an aid package, aimed at compensating any Turkish losses in case of war, which includes $5 billion in grants and $10 billion in loans, a Turkish official said.

Turkey's leaders also fear that a U.S.-led war might lead to a Kurdish state in northern Iraq and boost the aspirations of Turkey's Kurdish rebels who waged a 15-year war for autonomy in southeastern Turkey.

Turkey wants to send thousands of troops into northern Iraq in case of war.

Turkey and the United States were still working out the command of any Turkish troops in northern Iraq, the disarmament after a war of Iraqi Kurdish groups, and the control of two northern Iraqi oil fields, Yakis said.
 

 

 

The issue with Turkey is resistance to an Independent Kurdish State. The Turks and the Kurds do not get along, but are all Islamic. It seems to me that Islam in the Middle East is moving in two directions. Either alignment with the West and moderation, or radical militism aimed primarily at the destruction of the Jews of Israel.

The Islamic invasion of Israel in Ezekiel 38 & 39 reveals Togarmah (Turkey) as part of the Northern prong of this three pronged invasion. I'm watching Chechnya closely because they want an Independent Islamic State North of the Caucasus Mountains. I wonder if Turkey will support this movement? The Iraqi Kurds want to form an Independent Islamic State South of the Caucasus including the Kurds of Turkey. Such a State would meet the requirements of Togarmah because Togarmah represents the land and people South of the Caucasus, and not necessarily all of Turkey.

The Caucasus Mountains are important to this prophecy. One of the major peaks of the Caucasus is Ararat where Noah landed on the Ark. The post flood world centers at Ararat. The sons, grandsons, and great grandsons of Noah inhabited the world North and South from the Caucasus establishing the gentile nations until the time of Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon (the head of gold). Their names such as Magog, Tubal, Meshech, Gomer, Togarmah, Cush (= Ethiopia), and Put (or Phut = Libya) are mentioned in Ezekiel 38.

The invaders of the North who take the lead of radical Islam come from the land of Magog. This is the land North of the Caucasus. They are called the "chief prince" of Meshech and Tubal (most probably Moscow and Tubalsk the Western and Eastern capitals of Russia). I'm convinced the "chief prince" (prince of Rosh or prince of Russia) representing the Gog will be the Islamic radicals North of the Caucasus who are presently fighting with the King of the North for independence. This former Islamic prince of the Russian Gog is the best qualifier today for the "chief prince" of Ezekiel 38 & 39. Gomer is included like Togarmah as part of the Northern hoards. Gomer settled both North and South of the Caucasus around the Black Sea. Is Gomer the Islamic Kurds now inhabiting these lands, and Togarmah the radical Islamic Turks who will join with them? Only God knows, but we shall also soon know as we watch today's news unfolding.

It is no wonder the Lord Jesus Christ said it would be like the days of Noah when He would return.

Matthew 24:37

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

3 And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.
4 And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.

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.

EGYPT THREATENS TO WASH ITS HANDS OF PALESTINIAN TERROR GROUPS


Hamas, Islamic Jihad defy PA demands for ceasefire

Egypt has informed radical Palestinian factions that their refusal to accept a temporary cessation of terrorist attacks against Israel could prompt Cairo to sever its ties with them.

A Palestinian official told The Jerusalem Post Monday that Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other extremist groups have prompted Egyptian fury after they rejected its latest initiative for a one-year cease-fire with Israel.

"The Egyptians are really angry," the official added. "They see the Palestinian groups' stance as a severe blow to Egypt's credibility and prestige."

Egypt has over the past few months played host to consultations between different Palestinian factions with the hope that they would reach an agreement that would put an end to the ongoing violence, but called them off Monday after the Palestinians announced they would not discuss a cease-fire.

With evidence of an intensifying internal power struggle, the terror groups appear more and more willing to defy Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat who is reportedly "very keen" on reaching a truce to avoid an escalation of Israeli military incursions.

Hamas on Monday blasted the PLO's top official, Mahmoud Abbas, - and leading PA Prime Ministerial candidate for calling for a halt of terrorist attacks on Israeli civilians. Leading Hamas spokesman Abdel Aziz Rantisi, told reporters in Gaza City that he is not prepared to bargain on the future of the Palestinian people and their destiny," or disrespect the blood of the Islamic martyrs who have died fighting Israel.

Meanwhile, Likud cabinet minister Dan Meridor is holding international contacts aimed at forging a truce in the Gaza Strip, in return for concessions to ease the plight of the Palestinian population there, Army Radio reported Tuesday.

The reports indicate that Washington, European nations, Egypt and others were involved in the effort, and that as part of the bid, Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was being pressured to rein in the militant Hamas.

Attempts to broker a truce in Gaza comes after a week in which the IDF has carried out intensive operations against suspected Islamic militants, in a bid to prevent Palestinian gunners from launching rocket attacks against Israeli communities. Despite the operations, the rocket attacks have continued unabated nearly every day - striking homes, schools and factories.
 

 

 

The Islamic choice of moderation or radicalism comes to the front with this decision by Egypt today. The coming Islamic invasion of Israel as described in Ezekiel 38 & 39 does not mention Egypt as a participant. The Egyptian choice today may be tied directly to Ezekiel 38 & 39 if the invasion is close. Other Arab countries not mentioned as participating are Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon. Israel has long had a vision of signing peace treaties with individual Arab nations recognizing that peace with all of Islam is not a practical goal.  The Jews feel that by having treaties with those Arab countries on their boarders they will gain the security they desire. Israel surrounded by moderate Arab nations could well result in the Israel at rest that Ezekiel predicts.

I'm convinced such moderation that is demanded by alignment with the West will be lip service only. I'm sure Lebanon and Syria will put up no resistance letting the Northern prong of the Islamic invaders pass through their land. I'm sure Jordan will in fact welcome the Eastern Persian invaders to pass through. I also expect the Egyptians to step aside as the hoards of North African Islamic invaders flow from the South to accomplish the final solution to the Jewish problem of the Middle East.

I suspect the moderation of some of the sons of Ishmael will produce nothing but a false peace. The changes coming to the Arabs of the Middle East through the fall of Saddam, and democratization is the road to the Last Jihad of Ezekiel 38 & 39. It will be the end of Islamic influence in the Middle East. It will lead to the building of the Third Jewish Temple. But, it will also lead to an even worse peace treaty with the Western antichrist who will lead the world to Armageddon!

 

 

 

70th Week Peace Treaty

Daniel 9:25-27

25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

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

Sharon turns to his right to face the Quartet

By Aluf Benn

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is conducting a quiet diplomatic race in attempt to shape the international "road map" for a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Sharon wants to replace the current road map with a plan to be approved by Israel and the U.S., neutralizing the European Union's influence and its desire to use the road map to impose a settlement.

With the formation of his new government, Sharon is turning rightward. He made it clear that only after he reaches an agreement with U.S. President George Bush, will he bring his political plan to the government for discussion and ratification. He'll win twice - the ministers won't know anything and won't obstruct his contacts with the American administration, and then will be asked to approve a fait accompli.

Sharon prefers to talk with the White House than with the right-wing majority in his government. And it will take a significant amount of time until the plan he has in mind is complete and approved.

Opposing Sharon in this diplomatic race is the Quartet - the U.S., United Nations, European Union, and Russia - which wants to translate the seven-page document outlining the road map into a practical plan that leads in stages to a cease-fire and a Palestinian state, under international supervision.

At their meeting in London last week, the Quartet envoys agreed on a structure for the supervising mechanism, which will track the behavior of the sides and determine whether conditions have ripened for progress.

According to the plan, details of which have reached Israel, an American official will head the supervisory mechanism, and will report to the Quartet envoys. The mechanism will include four monitoring groups - one for humanitarian affairs, another for the Palestinian Authority reforms, a third for security, and a fourth "special operations" committee.

That special committee will cover the most sensitive issues, and will likely be the one that bothers Sharon the most. It will monitor construction in the settlements and make sure Israel dismantles illegal outposts put up during the Sharon term. Its purpose will be to guarantee there is a freeze on construction in veteran settlements.

Its other missions are to document the activities of the Palestinian institutions that Israel has closed in East Jerusalem, and to track incitement by both sides.

Israel is not enthusiastic about the international inspector of its activities, and regards that as a dangerous "internationalization of the conflict." Already last year, Israel proposed a different model to the Americans, in which supervision would be only of the Palestinian side, and would be dominated by the Americans. The inspectors' roles would be well-defined and limited.

The road map calls for a cease-fire and reforms in the PA while the IDF withdraws from PA areas and freezes settlement activity. That would be followed by the end of the year with a declaration of a Palestinian state in provisional borders, with a final status agreement signed by 2005.


 


Bush Sees Mideast Stability Once Iraqi Leader Is Disarmed

By DAVID STOUT

WASHINGTON, Feb. 26 — President Bush declared tonight that the Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein is "a direct and growing threat" but that a peaceful Iraq can help to bring peace and stability to the entire Middle East....

"The world has a clear interest in the spread of democratic values, because stable and free nations do not breed the ideologies of murder," Mr. Bush said. "They encourage the peaceful pursuit of a better life. And there are hopeful signs of the desire for freedom in the Middle East."

Mr. Bush says he sees, "from Morocco to Bahrain and beyond," developments that amount to "genuine steps toward political reform."

"A new regime in Iraq would serve as a dramatic and inspiring example of freedom to other nations of the region," Mr. Bush said.

 

 

 

    

All the road maps now being proposed leave out God! They are all political whether coming from the agnostic Europeans and Russians, the apostate Americans, or the secular Jews. They are all peace plans that will end in Armageddon! The coming peace after the war with Iraq is destine to lead the whole world to destruction. All plans include the eventual formation of a heathen Palestinian State in the midst of Israel. This is a road map to disaster. These are defiant propositions contrary to God's clear intent to form a Jewish Kingdom with the soon returning Lord Jesus Christ as it's Messiah/King. The whole world seems intent on accepting some edition of this basic road map where world politicians will usurp God's roll as overseer of Jewish activities in the Holy Land.

The coming political peace plan is a declaration of war with the God of the Bible. The conflict of the Great Tribulation can be understood by comparing this false road map for a political peace with God's plan as revealed in the Bible. God has declared there is no peace without Christ, and the future in Christ is His coming Kingdom! There is no other way! The world must submit to the reign of the Lord Jesus Christ, or perish!

There can be no compromised shared Kingdom with the heathen. There can be no compromised shared Kingdom with the agnostics, or the apostates, or any secularized religionists. God's road map is clear! There is no other way then the Lord Jesus Christ! There will be no manipulative mixing by men. Purity and Biblical righteousness will be administered by the King with a rod of Iron. Only this way can real peace be brought to planet earth!

Will 2005 be the year the world declared war on the God of the Bible?

 

 

The Big Picture

Deuteronomy 8:1-7
8:1 All the commandments which I command thee this day shall ye observe to do, that ye may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers.
2 And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.
3 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.
4 Thy raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy foot swell, these forty years.
5 Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, so the LORD thy God chasteneth thee.
6 Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.
7 For the LORD thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills;
KJV


Deuteronomy 9:1-4
9:1 Hear, O Israel: Thou art to pass over Jordan this day, to go in to possess nations greater and mightier than thyself, cities great and fenced up to heaven,

2 A people great and tall, the children of the Anakims, whom thou knowest, and of whom thou hast heard say, Who can stand before the children of Anak!

3 Understand therefore this day, that the LORD thy God is he which goeth over before thee; as a consuming fire he shall destroy them, and he shall bring them down before thy face: so shalt thou drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as the LORD hath said unto thee.

4 Speak not thou in thine heart, after that the LORD thy God hath cast them out from before thee, saying, For my righteousness the LORD hath brought me in to possess this land: but for the wickedness of these nations the LORD doth drive them out from before thee.

Bush and Sharon: The Pluses And Minuses Of Two Speeches

U.S. President George Bush, speaking last night at the Washington Hilton Hotel, said that the defeat of Saddam Hussein's regime could "begin a new stage for Middle Eastern peace," in that it would "deprive terrorist networks of a wealthy patron that pays for terrorist training, and offers rewards to families of suicide bombers." Calling for a Palestinian state that "abandons forever the use of terror," Bush also had demands for Israel: "As the terror threat is removed and security improves, Israel will be expected to support the creation of a viable Palestinian state and to work as quickly as possible toward a final status agreement. As progress is made toward peace, settlement activity in the occupied territories must end."

The night before, Prime Minister Sharon addressed the Board of Trustees of the Jewish Agency on the topic of "Jewish continuity." Excerpts:

"I am very pleased to be here this evening to take part in a discussion on matters concerning the Jewish people. I am first of all a Jew, and to me, being Jewish is the most important thing. In all my diplomatic meetings around the world… I begin with the words: 'I am a Jew, I come from the state of the Jewish people, the city of Jerusalem - the capital of the Jewish people for over 3,000 years and the united and undivided capital of the State of Israel forever.' And it is as a Jew that I am addressing you today...

"I wish to present to you my viewpoint of the challenges that the Jewish people is confronting at the dawn of the 21st century. Primary among these challenges is the subject of Jewish continuity… [We must] make a major investment in Jewish-Zionist education for future generations. Education for Jewish values, learning our glorious history and heritage, the Hebrew language - the language of the Jewish people, and the Bible, expanding our knowledge of Jewish continuity in the land of Israel over thousands of years, and strengthening the affinity of Jewish youth to the land of Israel.

"Enhancing Jewish education is important not only in the Diaspora. There is still much work in this field also in Israel...

"In the future, Jewish education will help [us face] another challenge facing the Jewish people - the challenge of immigration. Immigration is crucial to secure the future of the Jewish people. It is important not only to guarantee a Jewish majority in the State of Israel, but also to ensure Jewish existence throughout the world. One cannot argue with demographic statistics. Israel is the largest Jewish community and this is where Jewish growth increases continuously, more than anywhere else...

"In recent years we have been witnessing a phenomena, the magnitude of which we have never seen before. Many immigrants who are eligible for immigration under the Law of Return, but are not Jews according to Halacha [Jewish Law], have arrived in Israel. It is important to emphasize that these people see themselves as Jews, they serve in the Israel Defense Forces and have chosen to make Israel their home. Many of these people, upon their arrival in Israel, sought to formally join the Jewish people and convert. Unfortunately, many of them encountered bureaucratic obstacles which prevented them from doing so. I am not a rabbi and it is not for me to decide how Jews should be converted, but it is obvious to me that these bureaucratic obstacles must be removed so that anyone who is willing - in good faith - to undergo a conversion process, will be allowed to do so…

"Another challenge for the Jewish people is the development of two regions, where, I believe, lies the future of the Jewish people: the Negev and the Galilee. These are the only available lands for any future national projects. We must make the Negev and the Galilee a pioneer challenge for Jewish youths and take all necessary measures to ensure a Zionist majority in these regions...

"The final challenge that I wish to discuss today lies in the heart of every Jew - Jerusalem. 'Ten shares of beauty were given to world, Jerusalem took nine.' I am pleased that you were fortunate enough to be with us today, when the beauty of Jerusalem - cloaked in white - is radiating for all to see. No other city in the world best summarizes the essence of 'being Jewish,' no other city is more identified with the Jewish people. We must enhance the centrality of Jerusalem in the life of every Jew in the world..."

 

 

It is interesting at this pivotal point in history while the world concerns itself with globalization, and democratization of the moderate Arab countries that Ariel Sharon should be concerned about the preservation of the Jewish people! Globalization means the world will become a melting pot much as America already blends all ethnic groups into one people. Sharon recognizes that  what thousands of years of persecution could not do, international globalization can accomplish quickly. More Jews are lost to inter-marriage leading to identity loss in the US then all other causes. The last estimates I read were over 60% of American Jews marry gentiles forsaking their Jewishness. The melting pot has destroyed the Jewish family through freedom and democracy,  and I understand why Sharon is concerned about globalization coming to the Middle East.

The earliest issue concerning Babylon was globalization at the Tower of Babble. I see the same threat to the Jews as does Sharon.

Let me be straight! Gentile intermarriage is Biblical. The only Biblical restriction placed on Christian clergy is that we not unequally yoke a believer with an unbeliever. Bob Jones University has rejected their unbiblical dating policy between black and white. It was a bold, but Biblical move that went against Christian tradition going back to the days of slavery.  Many Christian clergy still remain lost in an evil tradition that never could stand the test of Biblical scrutiny.

The same reason for not yoking a believer with an unbeliever applies to secular unsaved Jews.  God has a plan for Israel, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount that is Jewish through and through. The new gentile Babylon coming on the heals of the Iraqi war is a road map intent on the subtle destruction of the Jewish people. Ariel Sharon exhibits a rare wisdom in pointing Jews to education of their unique history with God as the most important issue for today. He sees Jerusalem as center to the preservation of the Jewish people. Soon, Babylon with the  antichrist in control will present the antitheses of Jerusalem. A one world government of wealth built on a false road map to world peace verses the coming Jewish Kingdom ruled over by the Messiah/King Jesus Christ!

The winds of dispensational change are blowing in the Holy Land this very day! Israel must stand separated from the gods of the agnostics, apostates, and secular religionists!

 

 

Why No Unequal Yoking

1 Kings 11:1-13
11:1 But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites;
2 Of the nations concerning which the LORD said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love.
3 And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart.
4 For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father.
5 For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.
6 And Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD, and went not fully after the LORD, as did David his father.
7 Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon.
8 And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their gods.
9 And the LORD was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the LORD God of Israel, which had appeared unto him twice,
10 And had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods: but he kept not that which the LORD commanded.
11 Wherefore the LORD said unto Solomon, Forasmuch as this is done of thee, and thou hast not kept my covenant and my statutes, which I have commanded thee, I will surely rend the kingdom from thee, and will give it to thy servant.
12 Notwithstanding in thy days I will not do it for David thy father's sake: but I will rend it out of the hand of thy son.
13 Howbeit I will not rend away all the kingdom; but will give one tribe to thy son for David my servant's sake, and for Jerusalem's sake which I have chosen.
KJV
