Ezek 36:26

Condemning the Sentences for "Arutz-7 Ten"
16:38 Dec 31, '03 / 6 Tevet 5764
 

The "Professors for a Strong Israel" organization states that the sentences meted out to the Arutz-7 Ten earlier this week for operating an unlicensed radio station have already been served. "Their sentences of community service have already been served many times over," states Chairman Dr. Ron Breiman. "For many years, the station broadcast courageously the news and views that were suppressed by the 'state' media in Israel. The station's absence from the airwaves in the past few months has left the majority of the citizens without an organ that reflects their opinions." The organization called upon the Prime Minister and the government to "press forward with legislation to enable Arutz-7 to return to its essential function, serving the entire public in the interest of free speech and democracy."

The importance of Arutz-7's independent approach was acutely noted precisely on the eve of the sentencing of the Arutz-7 broadcasters. The Voice of Israel news reports of Sunday evening stated, "Most of the defendants are likely to receive sentences of four years in prison and three million shekels in fines, and station director Yaakov Katz is likely to be sentenced to seven years in prison." Arutz-7 sources, in a protest letter to Voice of Israel, wrote,
"Did the news editors that evening, Aryeh Shorr and Orah Herman, get to see the judge's decision before it was publicized? It is obvious that the wording should have been more cautious, such as, 'The maximum sentence for these infractions is...' or, 'the prosecution has asked for sentences of...' The way the news was formulated was a prophecy that wished to fulfill itself. The Prosecution did not even ask for such severe sentences! Broadcasting such an item harmed the professional image of Voice of Israel, and confirmed listeners' suspicions regarding its political slant."

Arutz-7's Programming Director Shulamit Melamed, who was sentenced to three months of community service and a fine of 25,000 shekels, says that the collective sigh of relief at the "light" sentences she and her colleagues received is not justified. "It reminds me of the story of the rabbi and the goat," she said. "A poor man complained that his house was too small, so the rabbi suggested that he bring his goat inside as well, followed by the rest of his livestock. When the man complained again even more plaintively, the rabbi told him to take out the animals - and the poor man then 'realized' how spacey his house suddenly was. Here too, the only reason why we are relieved is because the Prosecution asked for such severe sentences - actual jail time for four of us, and fines of hundreds of thousands of shekels each. The fact that we must perform 'only' community service and pay fines of 'only' tens of thousands of shekels each - for a total of 720,000 shekels - is no reason for joy. Such harsh sentences for people with no criminal past and who were convicted on such minor issues is unheard of."

Americans For a Safe Israel issued a statement against the sentence: "It is intolerable that in a so-called democracy, fines of hundreds of thousands of shekels, and many months of community service, should have been leveled against people providing a beneficial service to hundreds of thousands of radio listeners eager to hear unbiased news coverage."
 

 

 

This new year in Israel starts where the last left off with the clear liberal persecution of the conservative voices that tenaciously continue to speak out for submission to the Bible rather then the perverted views of men. Arutz-7 continues on the internet proclaiming themselves the only independent voice coming out of the Holy Land. Israel National Radio will probably be relegated to internet broadcasting only, but they are there for any interested in a voice for the independent fundamental Jewish settler movement. These are not saved Jews, but I feel they are good candidates as first responders when God removes the blindness that now plagues the Jewish people. The Messianic Jews of today must be raptured with the true Christian Church for proper doctrine to be maintained, but after the rapture the dispensation of the Church age ends. When the Church age ends so does the doctrine of the Christian Church. The Jewish Kingdom is the next Biblical dispensation, and Biblical doctrine of that dispensation will be as different as the doctrinal changes that took place when the New Testament fulfilled the promises made in (and limited within) the Old.

The Bible is clear that it is complete. There will never be a Newer Testament added to what is already written. The next dispensation must be regulated by what is already revealed. It will not be an extension of the Church otherwise there would be no need for a dispensational change. The Bible makes it clear the next dispensation will be centered in the literal Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Jewish Temple! It is Old Testament Judaism through and through! It will not be some revisionist Christian view of Judaism, but rather what God always intended Judaism to be as revealed in the Bible. It will not be a democracy, but rather a monarchy ruled over by a Jewish King - their Messiah! The conservative Jews say they are ready to submit to His rule when He is revealed. What a surprise that will be when it is revealed that He is the Biblical Christ! He will not be the Christ of apostate Christianity, but the Christ of the "born again" Christians raptured out of apostasy.

The time is right for preparation of a new Jewish foundation for a Biblical Judaism. I don't think the Israeli government is prepared for such a miracle change of heart, but I do have expectations for these independent Jews who are standing fast against the entire world. I watch with great expectation.

 

 

The Circumcising of the Jewish Heart

Deut 30:1-8
30:1 And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath driven thee,
2 And shalt return unto the LORD thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul;
3 That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee.
4 If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee:
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.

Students Hoping to Lead Aliyah Revolution
16:47 Jan 01, '04 / 7 Tevet 5764
 

Almost 1,000 Jewish student leaders from all over the world met in Jerusalem this week for the three-day Global Jewish Student Leadership Summit. The students underwent seminars to combat increasing anti-Semitism and anti-Israel sentiment on campus, and discussed ways of strengthening their bonds with Israel and the Jewish people, as well as their responsibilities for the future.

The summit was organized by the Jewish Agency, Minister Natan Sharansky's Office for Jerusalem and Diaspora Affairs, World Union of Jewish Students, Hillel, and The Israel on Campus Coalition, in cooperation with the Israeli Foreign Ministry and others.

Avraham Infeld, interim President of Hillel Foundation for Jewish Campus Life, said that his organization is now represented in Israel with close to 2,600 students from abroad:
"In addition to 2,200 students on Birthright, we have close to 400 students at this conference on four different tracks: one is for charity works such as visiting hospitals and old-age homes and distributing food; the second is an Israel advocacy group, in coordination with AIPAC; one deals with pluralism - joint Torah study for Reform, Conservative and Orthodox Jews, with the goal of forming such groups when they return to their campuses; and the last is a group of students looking into hi-tech possibilities in Israel."

Arutz-7's Yishai Fleisher asked, "Are we nearing any type of Aliyah revolution amongst Jewish students?" Mr. Infeld pondered and answered,
"I don't think so. The problem is that nothing is pushing North American Jewry to leave, and not enough is pulling them from Israel to come either... I'm worried about several things in Israel: the lack of unity, the politicization of every issue, and we have a very large party [Shinui] in the Knesset that forgets that Israel was created as a Jewish state. I didn't come to live in just another country in the Middle East; I came to live in a Jewish state! I'm willing to accept a variety of different interpretations as to what that means - but not one that [neutralizes Israel's Jewish character]. Our right to exist is only as a Jewish state! I don't agree with you politically, but we argue about these issues as Jews, from the Jewish point of view. Until this message of Jewish commitment and ideology comes out, we won't draw Aliyah...."

Scott Dubin, a student at New York University, expressed an equally Jewish point of view, but was more optimistic:
"We're here to learn about various programs in Israel, to train ourselves to help more and more Jewish students come to Israel - first on one-year programs, and then to be able to make Aliyah and make an amazing Jewish life here." He spoke of the "elation" he feels as a Jew "taking part in the fantastic return of the Jewish People to its home after 2,000 years of dispersion." One thing we're going to see, Dubin predicted, "is Zionist students from the Diaspora leading the Aliyah revolution - and Israel is going to be soon turned into a place that simply loves itself."

 

 

Why this insignificant news item? It indicates the Aliyah (return of Jews to the Holy Land) is not finished yet. It also shows the Biblical desire within the hearts of these young students. They recognize the failure of man centered politics, but have visionary expectations that God has His hand on what is happening in Israel today. They see the failure of men, but remain confident that through the God of their fathers there is a great Jewish victory coming.

My expectations come in the form of what the Bible says about the 144,000 Jews God will call to set a Biblical foundation for the Judaism that will function throughout the Millennial Kingdom. The foundation builders  will all be virgins! I don't watch the old married men of Israel locked into their twisted traditions, but the young! I watch for 12,000 from every tribal inheritance living on the Land God gave to them. I look for young men who keep themselves pure. The Bible says the world will hate their purity and righteous living.

True holiness will again return to the Holy Land. The standards lost by the Christian Church through its unions with the apostates who will be left behind will find renewal among these young Jews. I'm sure the phony TV revivals within the apostate Church will continue into the Great Tribulation, but real holiness will expose the difference.

This holiness starts only when God circumcises the hearts of these chosen Jews, but the preparation for that circumcision may well be part of today's news. The year 2004 is starting with great expectations for those who can awaken their understanding of God's Biblical plan for the Holy Land. It is not the gentile road map, but dispensational change that will end the times of the gentiles. Holiness is what is coming with the Jewish Kingdom. The Lord Jesus Christ will set the Biblical standard that will rule this planet for the next 1000 years.

Please note the Bible says an angel proclaims the everlasting gospel, and that proclaiming does not seem to be the primary function for these 144,000 Jews. I suspect their primary function will be to build Ezekiel's Temple under the direct supervision of the Two Witnesses of Revelation chapter 11. I think they will establish acceptable, proper, kosher, Holy, Jewish, worship in the next (the last) Holy Jewish Temple! They will not go out as Christian evangelists, but stay centered in Israel waiting for men to come to them. Their Temple will be the only place on planet earth (as it was in the Old Testament) where Biblical worship of God can be preformed. These sealed Jews will flee Jerusalem for the wilderness at 3-1/2 years into the Great Tribulation as God provides them protection from the antichrist, but they return at the end of the Great Tribulation cleansing their Temple in preparation for the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

 

Building the Last Jewish Temple for the Lamb

Rev 14:1-11
14:1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.
2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:
3 And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.
4 These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.
5 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.
6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
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.
KJV

Pat Robertson: God told him it's Bush in a 'blowout'

By SONJA BARISIC
Associated Press Writer

January 2 2004

NORFOLK, Va. -- Pat Robertson said Friday that God told him President Bush will be re-elected in a landslide.

"I think George Bush is going to win in a walk," the religious broadcaster said on his "700 Club" program on the Virginia Beach-based Christian Broadcasting Network, which he founded.

"I really believe I'm hearing from the Lord it's going to be like a blowout election in 2004. It's shaping up that way," Robertson said.

"The Lord has just blessed him," Robertson said of Bush. "I mean, he could make terrible mistakes and comes out of it. It doesn't make any difference what he does, good or bad, God picks him up because he's a man of prayer and God's blessing him."

Earlier on the program, Robertson had explained that he wanted to share "some of the things that I believe the Lord was showing me as I spent several days in prayer at the end of 2003."

Robertson also said that this year will be one of "extraordinary prosperity" and that God will bless China in 2004 "in a way it's never known before."

"God loves China and he loves the Chinese people," Robertson said. "I believe there's going to be an unbelievable spiritual revival taking place in China this year."

The Rev. Barry W. Lynn, a frequent Robertson critic and executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, said he had a prediction of his own.

"I predict that Pat Robertson in 2004 will continue to use his multimillion broadcasting empire to promote George Bush and other Republican candidates," Lynn said in a statement. "Maybe Pat got a message from (Bush political adviser) Karl Rove and thought it was from God."

A Robertson spokeswoman did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment.
 

 

 

I don't believe God would stoop to giving mankind through Robertson such a meaningless message. I think Pat Robertson filled with pride really believes God talks to him. It is Biblically designated as divine revelation. It means what God says to Pat Robertson is of the same equality as the eternal never changing word of God - the Bible!

Self diluted characters such as Robertson have long been part of Church history. What makes him different is that in the past these characters only influenced their cultic followers. Today, Robertson is accepted as a valid voice of main stream Christian leadership. The modern Evangelical thinks nothing upon hearing such utter nonsense in the news. They are calloused to such claims after a generation of listening to phony signs and miracles being attributed to the God of the Bible. This pompous Evangelical Church of today mostlyagrees to the prosperity message of Robertson thinking God owes them for their efforts in getting out the gospel message. They have given Robertson his personal multi-millions to do the job. They have paid the expensive cost of TV evangelism. They have paid for the distribution of the Jesus film. They pay and pay for whatever their leadership says is needed. They have paid for it all, and they have bathed their efforts in prayer. Now, they expect God to show His gratitude by blessing them.

Robertson brags of his start from the back of an old station wagon. The thinking is if God materially blessed him, then that same God is obligated to materially bless me. Gone are the days of the sacrificing missionary who gained nothing for his efforts but the satisfaction of serving his Savior. Main stream Christianity has changed, and with the increase of riches has lost sight of the true gospel. It is time for dispensational change!

 

 

Today's Main Stream Christianity

Rev 3:14-22

14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
KJV
 

 

Sunday - January 4, 2004

The fast of the Tenth of Tevet falls on this Sunday,

January 4, 2004, from daybreak to nightfall

In Jewish consciousness, a fast day is a time of reckoning, a time to correct a previous mistake. What happened on the Tenth of Tevet that we have to correct?

On the Tenth of Tevet, 2,500 years ago, Nebuchadnezzar began his siege of Jerusalem. Actually, there was little damage on that first day and no Jews were killed. So why is this day so tragic? Because the siege was a message, to get the Jewish people to wake up and fix their problems. They failed, and the siege led to the destruction of the King Solomon's Temple.

Today we are also under siege. Much of the Jewish world is ignorant of our precious heritage. Children whose Jewish education ended at age 13 now carry that perception through adulthood. The results are catastrophic: assimilation in the diaspora, and a blurring of our national goals in Israel.

 

Ezek 38:8

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.

Meteorite hits Iran
Fri January 02, 2004 10:48 AM ET

TEHRAN (Reuters) - A meteorite has hit northern Iran causing minor damage to property but there were no immediate reports of casualties, state radio has said.

It said the impact sent locals in panic onto the streets in the northern town of Babol in Mazandaran province.

"A meteorite which hit Babol on Friday morning caused only some minor damage to residential units," radio said, without giving further details or citing any source.

It said the impact was felt up to one kilometre away.

Iranians are currently mourning at least 30,000 people killed by an earthquake measuring 6.8 on the Richter scale which struck southeastern Iran on December 26.

 

 

One of the largest meteor strikes in modern history strikes Iran just one week after an earthquake levels one of its oldest (2000 years old) cities is not coincidence! The secular news media will never question what should be the biggest news event in recent history indicating God is doing something in the Middle East, but I will!

The Bible is clear Iran representing old Persia will have a roll in the ending of this present dispensation. Islamic Iran is the Eastern prong of a three pronged Islamic invasion of Israel in the "latter years" as Ezekiel already revealed. It is clear to me God is indicating those years are upon us, and only apathy and ignorance is the response to what should bring the  fear of God upon all mankind! This is only the first salvo of fire and brimstone that no computer age technology can predict or stop.

Pompous men are about to experience the awesome power the God of the Bible can muster when He decides the time is right to force His will upon His creation. Resistance will be futile! Men must either submit or perish! There can never be compromise with perfect holiness. The Lord Jesus Christ is coming again as King of His Jewish Kingdom. He is going to return to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and Ezekiel's Temple! He is about to fulfill His promise to be the King of kings, and LORD of Lords! Mankind with all their recent technological advancements are absolutely helpless in the face of such power as is coming to planet earth. This God can pull the ground out from under the feet, and rain down fire and brimstone from the heavens. Just look what He is about to do to the Islamic Iranians who defiantly invade His Holy Land!

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

Ezek 39:4-8

4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.

5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.

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

7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.

8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken.

Assembly to be Followed by Walk Around Temple Gates
13:23 Jan 04, '04 / 10 Tevet 5764
 

(IsraelNN.com) A large assembly will get underway at 14:00 in Yeshivat HaKotel located on Misgav Ladach Street in Jerusalem’s Old City. The general public is invited to attend the event (in Hebrew).

Coinciding with today being the 10th of Tevet Fast Day, commemorating the first stage of the siege on Jerusalem which led to the destruction of the Temple, the assembly will address Temple-related issues. Prominent Torah scholars will address the assembly.

At 18:00, the participants will join thousands and encircle the Temple Gates beginning from the back of the Kotel (Western Wall) Plaza and completing the march in 2½ - 3 hours at the Dung Gate.


Sharon and Mofaz Swoop Down on Two More Outposts
12:56 Jan 04, '04 / 10 Tevet 5764
 

Prime Minister Sharon and Defense Minister Mofaz signed an order this morning for the dismantling of two more outposts, including the expulsion of their residents, and are preparing to act against Tapuach West as well.

Two more blows have been struck in the developing "war" between the Israeli government and the Jewish settlement enterprise in Yesha (Judea, Samaria and Gaza). Prime Minister Sharon and Defense Minister Sha'ul Mofaz signed an order this morning for the dismantling of two more outposts, including the expulsion of their residents, and are preparing to act against Tapuach West as well. One of the two immediately threatened locations is the Maon Farm, south of Hevron, where seven families live in a wooded area adjacent to the recognized community of Maon. Then-Prime Minister Ehud Barak ordered the army to destroy the farm and expel its three families in November 1999, but it has since been rebuilt. The original founder, Dov Dribben, was murdered there by Arabs in 1998.

The second outpost whose destruction was decided upon today by Sharon and Mofaz is Tal Binyamin, adjacent to Ofrah, named for Binyamin Kahane and his wife Talia. The two were murdered four years ago outside Ofrah as they were driving home to Tapuach, and left six orphans. An institute for the study of Jewish Law operates in Tal Binyamin, though no one lives there.

In light of a query by Justice Minister Lapid of Shinui, Sharon instructed Mofaz to take quick action against an unauthorized outpost in Tapuach as well.

The Yesha Council of Jewish Communities in Judea, Samaria and Gaza announced that it would act against the destruction of the outposts with all the legal and political tools in its power. A petition by "Professors for a Strong Israel" against the actions will be heard in the Supreme Court tomorrow. Rabbi Avi Gisser of Ofrah said this morning that all he asks of the government is to "act within the law, and not use all sorts of political procedures to bypass the legitimate civil rights of those who the government wishes to expel from their homes."

 

 

Everything, and I mean everything that will be taking place during the next dispensation will be centered within this one small area that the Tenth of Tevet march encircles. This will be where the Lord Jesus Christ will dwell for the next thousand years. It will be the only place on earth where the glory of God will physically be manifested for the benefit of mankind. Ezekiel confirms that the Shecaniah Glory will again come to a Jewish Temple (Ezekiel 40 - 48) yet to be constructed upon the Temple Mount. That same glory that first protected and guided the Jewish people through the wilderness. That same glory that filled both the Tabernacle in the wilderness, and then the permanent place of Solomon's First Jewish Temple will be coming again! The Second Jewish Temple has no record of that glory being manifested. The last record is that of the First Temple when it lifted up off the Ark of the Covenant, went out the door to the Mount of Olives, and then up to heaven.

The Second Temple was not without glory, but it was glory of a different sort. The LORD of hosts promised the builders through the prophet Haggai that it would have a glory all its own.

Hag 2:7

7 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.
KJV
 

On the Mount of Transfiguration that glory was revealed as an attribute of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is to return in the same manner as He left this world from the Mount of olives. The only mount East of the Temple Mount. He will return to the Mount of Olives, and travel across the Kidron Valley to the East gate of the Temple. He will then enter the yet to be constructed Ezekiel Jewish Temple!

The struggle within Judaism is clear. The Land and the Temple Mount must be conquered! The independent fundamental Jewish settlers defy the animalistic Islamic Palestinians. They defy their own secular government. They deify the entire gentile world, and the phony toad map peace plan. The only thing they do not defy is what the God of the Bible says must happen for dispensational change to take place. I watch with great anticipation.

"Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done"

 

 

The Glory Leaving the First Temple

Ezek 10:4

4 Then the glory of the LORD went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the LORD's glory.
KJV

Ezek 10:18-19

18 Then the glory of the LORD departed from off the threshold of the house, and stood over the cherubims.

19 And the cherubims lifted up their wings, and mounted up from the earth in my sight: when they went out, the wheels also were beside them, and every one stood at the door of the east gate of the LORD's house; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them above.
KJV

Ezek 11:22-23

22 Then did the cherubims lift up their wings, and the wheels beside them; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them above.

23 And the glory of the LORD went up from the midst of the city, and stood upon the mountain which is on the east side of the city.
KJV


The Glory Coming Again to the Last Temple

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

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

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

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

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


The Glory Coming Again in Like Manner

Acts 1:11-12

11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

12 Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's journey.

What the PA Appointed Mufti Really Feels about Jerusalem’s Holy Sites
17:45 Jan 05, '04 / 11 Tevet 5764
 

(IsraelNN.com) The following unedited excerpt was obtained from IslamOnline.net. It clearly shows that the Islamic Wakf Authority sees the Kotel (Western Wall) as the property of Islam along with the Temple Mount, site of the holy Temples. Parenthesis inserted by ‘INN”.

"I warn against taking such a transgression on the Islamic holy place, and call on Muslims – governments and people – to heed this dangerous situation," Ikrima Sabri, Mufti of occupied Jerusalem, told IslamOnline.net. "Al-Aqsa mosque and its surroundings, including Buraq (Kotel/Western) Wall, is a Muslim legitimate right", he averred.

 

 

I've never heard of a single Moslem ever going to the Kotel or Western Wall to do anything other then throw garbage there. Before the 1967 Six Day War the Western Wall was a garbage dump when under Islamic control. Jews were forbidden to worship at their traditional holiest site. The Moslems do not want this site for worship, but only to make it a garbage dump once more. Be not deceived about what this present generation of Islam would do if they could. The Taliban destroyed the Buddhist Idols, and the Islamic Palestinians would not only destroy all Jewish traces in the Holy Land, but all Christian sites as well were they not restrained. Imagine an only Moslem Holy Land? This is the only way the great lie of Islam could ever claim credibility. It would be by destroying all truth leaving only the Islamic lie! Be not deceived of what this present generation of Islam would do to the Holy Land were they able!

Islam has done its best to do exactly this on the Temple Mount. Jewish pressure is the only force keeping Islam from turning that place into an exclusively Moslem only site. The real battle behind the scenes is whether Islam will succeed in destroying all evidence that the Bible is true. The real battle is between Islam, and the God of the Bible. The end of that battle is already recorded in the Bible. Ezekiel 38 & 39 records the "Last Jihad" effort by Islam to take total control of the Holy Land, and destroy all evidence of truth so only their lie is left. It will not work!

The Bible already declares it will have the final victory over the Holy Land. Islam and the Koran are destine for the dung heap of history where the other heathen nations and cultures of the past are nothing but infamous memories. Only the Biblical plan of the coming Kingdom will be victorious after this present battle for the Holy Land ends.

"Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done"

 

 

Ps 22:28-31

28 For the kingdom is the LORD's: and he is the governor among the nations.

29 All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.

30 A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.

31 They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.

Government Prepares To Uproot 28 More Outposts
17:47 Jan 06, '04 / 12 Tevet 5764
 

It was learned today that the Defense Ministry has prepared a list of no fewer than 28 established and populated outposts that it plans to uproot and destroy, and whose residents it plans to expel.

The broad smiles in the Yesha Council in response to yesterday's Supreme Court ruling that removed the carpet from under the government orders to uproot several populated outposts - at least temporarily - have been replaced by frowns of consternation.

It was learned today that the Defense Ministry has prepared a list of no fewer than 28 established and populated outposts that it plans to uproot and destroy, and whose residents it plans to expel. The list includes locations such as Migron, Mitzpeh Yitzhar, Nofei Nechemiah, Givat Assaf, Gilad Farm, Maaleh Rehavam, Nvei Daniel North, Givat Avigayil, and Asael.


Is Sharon Declaring War on Yesha?
18:29 Jan 06, '04 / 12 Tevet 5764
 

(IsraelNN.com) Defense Ministry officials have instructed the IDF to verify the legality of many Yesha (Judea, Samaria & Gaza) communities, apparently increasing efforts to uproot yishuvim in addition to the “unauthorized outposts”.

The first two names to appear on the list are Neguhot, a small community in the Hevron Hills, and Palgei Mayim, a neighborhood in the Shomron community of Eli, located in the Gush Shilo area of the Benjamin Regional Council district.

Neguhot began in 1982 as an army Nahal outpost while Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was serving as defense minister. In 1998, Sharon in his capacity as national infrastructure minister converted it into a civilian community.

The Palgei Mayim neighborhood of Eli began as an unauthorized outpost that was removed by the army. Repeated attempts to resettle the hill were eventually successful and last year, ten permanent homes were constructed in the area with funding from government agencies, alongside over 20 caravans. There are over 30 families living in the neighborhood of Eli, now about 500 families.

The IDF’s Civil Administration has also been instructed to verify the legal status of Givat Salit, a ten caravan community in the Jordan Valley region, as well as Tekoa Daled, in the eastern Gush Etzion district.

Deputy Defense Minister Ze’ev Boim confirmed that the army has been instructed to verify the legality of many communities, varying in size and age, but he was unwilling to list names.
 

 

 

There is much discussion in Israel over what Ariel Sharon is up to? Some think he is being sly. Others think he is folding to the pressure of his antagonists, and still others think he just lost his mind? Time will tell what is the truth, but this latest move against the independent fundamental Jewish settlers is sparking thoughts of a civil war brewing among the Jews. It would not be the first time independent Jews resisted governmental intrusion. The Bible is full of clashes of Jews against Jews. Jewish history records a divided Kingdom that lasted from the end of King Solomon's reign to the Assyrian victory, and absorption of the Northern Kingdom. The issue throughout that era was over the compromise of Biblical Judaism with gentile paganism. The Northern Kingdom of Israel compromised all the way through its history. The Southern Kingdom of Judah compromised as well, but when necessary would repent from their sin turning back to the Bible. They would cleanse the Temple which only they had, and re-establish kosher worship which included blood sacrifice for sin.

God is already on record that He will not tolerate a divide Kingdom again. Judaism must be united when the Kingdom comes. The conflict between secular, and Biblical Jews will continue throughout the Great Tribulation. Terrible men will raise themselves up into leadership over the secular Jews. They will all fail in their attempts to secularize the coming Kingdom. All attempts to compromise the holiness of God will fail. Biblical Judaism will rule in purity and righteousness. Never again will foolish shepherds lead the flock when this coming Kingdom struggles into existence. Perfect government will come together with perfect religion, and the two will become one at Ezekiel's Temple (read Mishpat). The centerpiece of Torah. The book of Leviticus will  again be the focus of Biblical Judaism at the altar of the last Jewish Temple yet to be constructed on the Temple Mount. Blood sacrifice will again be accepted, but at this Temple it will be in remembrance of Calvary. Biblical Judaism will never be divided in this last coming Kingdom. God will accomplish the victory where man through the weakness of sin has continually failed. The price of victory has been paid. What men tried to make of little value, God is about to demonstrate has value beyond comprehension.

The Coming United Kingdom

Isa 11:12-13

12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

13 The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim.
KJV

Ezek 37:16-17

16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions:

17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.
KJV

Zech 11:7-17

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

Dan 9:27

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

No Freedom of Worship for Jews in Jerusalem
16:49 Jan 07, '04 / 13 Tevet 5764
 

(IsraelNN.com) An Israeli who ascended to the Temple Mount with a group of visitors this morning was arrested after prostrating himself in prayer.

After being spotted trying to pray on the holy site by a member of the Islamic Wakf Authority, the Wakf agent summoned police who dragged him out of the area and placed him under arrest for attempting to pray.

Acquiescing to Muslim demands, Israel Police does not permit prayer on the Mount other than that of Muslims.

The Temple Mount is the holiest site to the Jewish people, home of the First and Second Temples. While many leading rabbinical authorities permit Jews to visit the Mount after a ritual bath, there are leading Torah authorities that forbid visiting the site for fear of transgressing laws dealing with areas that are forbidden due to our state of ritual impurity.

 

 

The battle over the settlement of Yesha is complimented by this battle over sovereignty of the Temple Mount. These are all independent fundamental Jews responding to what their heart directs as a result of their understanding of the Old Testament. They do not belong to any one political party. They do not have strategy planning meetings. They act as individuals, but together are bringing Bible prophesy into fulfillment.

Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount is only the beginning. The end must be the bulldozing of all Islamic shrines, and the construction of Ezekiel's Temple. That Temple must be in kosher operation by the mid-point of the Great Tribulation for the antichrist to stop what will be acceptable blood sacrifice when he usurps God's authority claiming himself to be the Messiah for whom this Temple will be built. What is happening today on the Mount is the beginnings of the end of Islamic control not only over the Temple Mount, but the entire Holy Land. 1967 was a critical year in the history of this third miraculous occupation and conquest by the Jews of the Promised Land. That was the year when the Temple Mount as a result of the Six Day War came under Jewish sovereignty. For the first time in 2000 years the literal fulfillment of prophecy connected to dispensational change centered in Ezekiel's Temple became a reality. Almost 40 years have now past with no action on the part of the Jews to do anything with their new found sovereignty. The fact is the secular governments actually treat the Mount as a hot potato. The present government policy even forbids Jews from praying on this most holy site. All this must change, and these tenacious independent Jews are rocking the boat. I'm convinced we are witnessing the beginning of the end. I'm confident enough to boldly proclaim the Kingdom is at hand! Don't sell the family farm on my speculations, but do get excited as the potential for Biblical dispensational change becomes real. The occupation has been provided by the Biblical God of providence. Now, individual Jews motivated by the Bible must complete the conquest!

 

 

Blood Sacrifice in Ezekiel's Temple

Ezek 43:13-18

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

Sharon Bends To US Demands
22:14 Jan 08, '04 / 14 Tevet 5764
 

Reports continue to surface that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's diplomatic policies are being run more in tandem with American dictates than with Israeli Cabinet decisions. Middle East Newsline (MENL) reports today that Sharon pledged to the United States that he would help establish an interim Palestinian state in 2004, regardless of whether the Palestinian Authority ends terrorism and eliminates terrorist infrastructures.

Anonymous Israeli officials quoted by MENL said that Sharon relayed this commitment to President Bush in late 2003. Sharon agreed, the report states, to a U.S. demand that the Road Map be implemented over the next year - even if the PA does not fulfill its commitment to fight Hamas, Islamic Jihad and others.

As Arutz-7 reported earlier this week, this flies in the face of an Israeli Cabinet decision that makes Road Map implementation contingent upon the PA's fulfillment of its own obligations. On May 25, 2003, the Israeli Government approved the Road Map, but attached 14 reservations - Sharon called them at the time "red lines beyond which we cannot and will not withdraw" - stating clearly that Israel will not proceed with the Road Map unless the PA fulfills its obligations. The 14 points state that "there must be no terrorism during the process," that the PA must "dismantle the existing security organizations," and that "full performance will be a condition for progress between phases and for progress within phases."

Deputy Defense Minister Ze'ev Boim unabashedly told Arutz-7 earlier this week that the reason Sharon is bent on destroying Yesha outposts even as terrorism continues is because of the agreement with the U.S.: "The Americans said clearly that within the first phase of the Road Map, the sides were to fulfill their commitments in parallel, with our obligations not dependent on whether the PA fulfilled its obligations. So we have to do this in order to fulfill our commitment to the Americans."

 

 

This is not the first time Israel has bowed to gentile pressure. The Biblical past has proven such moves as always opposed by God, and harmful to the Jews. The issue at this second miraculous return of the Jews to the Holy Land is the same issue as always faced the Jewish people throughout history. Are they going to put their trust and faith in the God of their fathers, or their own wits of survival in a hostel gentile dominated world? This time the coming Kingdom is on the line.

Not all Jews agree that the Road Map that would form forever an Islamic heathen Palestinian State right in the midst of the Holy Land is the right thing to do. The opposition is not the majority, but rarely has the majority agreed with God.

The issue today is where will Israel place its confidence? Gentile America may have the appearance of friendly, but political friendships  can change quickly. Blood always proves stronger then water, and America will side with its gentile brothers at the end. God is in the process of turning this world ypside-down. The times of the gentiles is coming to an end, and the Jewish Kingdom is about to be ushered in. God's Biblical plan is centered in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. All gentile interfearance with this plan is doomed to fail!

 

 

 

Jer 2:35-37

35 Yet thou sayest, Because I am innocent, surely his anger shall turn from me. Behold, I will plead with thee, because thou sayest, I have not sinned.

36 Why gaddest thou about so much to change thy way? thou also shalt be ashamed of Egypt, as thou wast ashamed of Assyria.

37 Yea, thou shalt go forth from him, and thine hands upon thine head: for the LORD hath rejected thy confidences, and thou shalt not prosper in them.

*LATEST NEWS*- HUMANITARIAN ARMS

 

Accusing Syria of calling for renewed peace talks while arming Hizb’Allah with some 11,000 missiles to fight a proxy war from Lebanon, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said Thursday that he will not negotiate peace with Damascus while Syria is actively waging war against Israel, according to The Jerusalem Post.

 

Sharon’s comments coincided with a report aired by Channel 1 television that airplanes laden with humanitarian relief sent to Iran following the recent devastating earthquake in Bam returned to Damascus filled with weapons for Hizb’Allah guerrillas in Lebanon. Defense Ministry officials confirmed the report and said it was a cynical use of humanitarian aid.

 

In Washington, US officials remain skeptical of Syrian intentions in offering to re-start talks with Israel, and are leaving the matter to Jerusalem’s discretion. Punitive US legislation, designed to impose stiff sanctions on Damascus for their ongoing support of terrorist activity throughout the Middle East, is thought to be isolating Syrian President Bashar Assad and talks with Israel are seen as a means by which he can relieve some of the growing American pressure.

 

 

 

The world was filled with compassion for the tragedy that tool place at Bam, but for the Islamists it was just another underhanded opportunity to ship death for the Jews of the Holy Land. I can't stress enough that when God acts in Judgment against Islam, it will not be because the Jews, or any other nation are so good. It will be because Islam has sunk so deeply into depravity. The God of the Bible does not see Biblical righteousness in this sin filled world. It is all wickedness, but some wickedness can reach the very depths of depravity. The historical record for this generation of Islam has achieved such depravity in my estimation. The proof will be the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38 & 39.

I do not see a difference between the attitude of God at the first entrance of the Jews into the Holy Land, and this present third miraculous entrance. The issue is not righteousness, but wickedness! The righteousness will come later when God circumcises the hearts of His chosen Jews.

I suspect nothing pertaining to Biblical righteousness will take place until God removes the small remaining voice of fundamentalism from within this present monstrous apostate Christian Church . The Jews do acknowledge that there are righteous gentiles around, but only acknowledge those who help Jewish interests. I do not expect righteous gentiles to bring about a revival that will bring the Church back to its righteous puritanical foundations. It is just too late. The future is for the Jews, and their return to the righteousness founded by their Patriarchcal Fathers. The circumcised heart will identify these Jews just as "born again" used to identify puritanical fundamental Christianity.

The coming Kingdom is intended to bring back Biblical righteousness. That plan is centered in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. There is no place for this generation of wicked Islamists. The reason for the coming judgment should be abundantly clear. The truth is there for any willing to filter it out from among the propaganda of the politics. It is sin! It is wickedness! It is about the only Biblical solution to wickedness and sin! The Jewish Messiah is coming again, and this time the Jews will turn to Him for redemption!

 

 

The First Entrance into the Holy Land

Deut 9:1-7
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.
5 Not for thy righteousness, or for the uprightness of thine heart, dost thou go to possess their land: but for the wickedness of these nations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee, and that he may perform the word which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
6 Understand therefore, that the LORD thy God giveth thee not this good land to possess it for thy righteousness; for thou art a stiffnecked people.
7 Remember, and forget not, how thou provokedst the LORD thy God to wrath in the wilderness: from the day that thou didst depart out of the land of Egypt, until ye came unto this place, ye have been rebellious against the LORD.

Palestinians Say They Can Declare a State

By RAMIT PLUSHNICK-MASTI Associated Press Writer

JERUSALEM (AP) - Palestinian leaders on Saturday reasserted the right to unilaterally declare an independent state in the absence of a peace deal with Israel, responding to Israel's own threats of one-sided action.

The go-it-alone declarations reflect both sides' frustrations with more than three years of fighting and stalled peace talks.

The PLO Executive Committee, one of the Palestinians' key leadership bodies, met Friday night to discuss the ongoing conflict with Israel and reiterated the right to declare a state in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Arab parts of Jerusalem - lands that Israel took control of in the 1967 Mideast war.

The Palestinians' path to statehood has come under question amid warnings by Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon that he could give up on peace talks and draw a boundary that would leave the Palestinians with much less land than they seek.

Sharon recently outlined a plan under which he would withdraw forces from parts of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, dismantle some Jewish settlements along the way and draw his own boundary between Israel and the Palestinians if peace talks remain stopped.

On Saturday, Saleh Rafat, a member of the PLO committee, said Israel's actions will not prevent the Palestinians from declaring "an independent Palestinian state within the 1967 border." But there are no immediate plans to declare a state, Rafat said.

Cabinet minister Saeb Erekat also emphasized that a "two-state solution is the option of the Palestinian leadership."

From exile in Tunis, the Palestinian National Council declared an independent state in the West Bank and Gaza in 1988 - a move that was never recognized internationally.

In 1999, Yasser Arafat threatened to declare a state again, but backed down after then-Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he would annex parts of the West Bank in response.

Now, the Palestinians face threats from Israel that they could be left with far less territory than they've sought for a future state.

Some Israeli officials believe the Palestinians, possibly even Arafat, are seeking a new strategy: waiting for demographics to resolve the conflict. Experts have predicted the Palestinians will outnumber Jews in the coming decades.


Israel Not Concerned Over PA Threats of Statehood
01:34 Jan 11, '04 / 17 Tevet 5764
 

(IsraelNN.com) Israeli officials are not concerned over recent statements by Yasser Arafat and PA leaders, stating they have every right to unilaterally declare PA statehood at any time. Government officials were quoted by Israel Radio as saying the PA cannot even manage to run autonomous areas, yet alone a state, adding the international community would not tolerate such a PA move.

PA officials indicated they might declare statehood and invite UN observers into the area to monitor compliance of the U.S.’ Road Map plan.

 

 

The reality is the Land of Judah, Samaria, and Gaza is already annexed by providence. The real problem is that the secular Jewish government refuses to take the responsibility that God has given them. They quiver and quake before the gentile powers rather then trust the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It is only the independent fundamental Jewish settlers who show the boldness to go forward with God's provisions.

The real battle over the Promised Land is between the God of the Bible, and the wicked Islamic Arab Palestinians. There is a great rally planned today among Jews opposed to the destruction of any Jewish settlements. It reflects the growing sentiments among the Jews to trust God rather then their own government.

It is these Jews who are preventing the implementation of the gentile road map. It is these Jews who are preventing a heathen Palestinian State from being planted right in the middle of the Holy Land. It is these Jews who I believe will be the first to respond when God removes the blindness that is now covering Jewish eyes. The battle is not righteousness triumphing over wickedness yet! Biblical righteousness is yet coming with the foundation of the Kingdom. What is happening is the preparations for the coming Jewish Kingdom in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. Today's Jews do not have a clear picture of what God is doing yet. The rapture of the small voice of righteous "born again" Jews and gentiles from the great monster evidenced by today's Apostate Christianity must happen first.  It will not be until these Jews recognize the Messiah they have longed for is none other then the Biblical Christ of those who have just been raptured that the picture will become clear. It is then that Biblical righteousness will come again to the Holy Land!

 

 

Ezek 36:1-10
36:1 Also, thou son of man, prophesy unto the mountains of Israel, and say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the LORD:
2 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because the enemy hath said against you, Aha, even the ancient high places are ours in possession:
3 Therefore prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because they have made you desolate, and swallowed you up on every side, that ye might be a possession unto the residue of the heathen, and ye are taken up in the lips of talkers, and are an infamy of the people:
4 Therefore, ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord GOD; Thus saith the Lord GOD to the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, to the desolate wastes, and to the cities that are forsaken, which became a prey and derision to the residue of the heathen that are round about;
5 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Surely in the fire of my jealousy have I spoken against the residue of the heathen, and against all Idumea, which have appointed my land into their possession with the joy of all their heart, with despiteful minds, to cast it out for a prey.
6 Prophesy therefore concerning the land of Israel, and say unto the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I have spoken in my jealousy and in my fury, because ye have borne the shame of the heathen:
7 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I have lifted up mine hand, Surely the heathen that are about you, they shall bear their shame.
8 But ye, O mountains of Israel, ye shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit to my people of Israel; for they are at hand to come.
9 For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto you, and ye shall be tilled and sown:
10 And I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, even all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be builded:

The People of Israel Will Not Surrender!'
21:09 Jan 11, '04 / 17 Tevet 5764

“The people of Israel are not ready to surrender” is the message being broadcast across the world from Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square.

50,000 people have already arrived at the rally, with tens of thousands still on buses in traffic leading toward the site.

Minister of Internal Security Uzi Landau (Likud) addressed the crowd, leading off a steady stream of Likud MKs expected to address the crowd.

Minister of Housing Effie Eitam (NRP) issued an emotion filled plea to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. “Arik,” said Eitam from the podium, “we, your friends are here to strengthen you. We know that the last watch before dawn is always the toughest – but the morning is almost here. We are witnessing the success of our war against the enemy and you wish to hand him victory? Is this the time to surrender and flea the battlefield – in the middle of combat?

“We were with you in battle, Arik. Zambish [Zeev Chever, friend of PM Sharon and chairman of Amana, which handles the logistics of the settlement enterprise – ed.], Ketzaleh [Yaakov Katz, of Arutz-7], and many others. We are with you in this battle for our roads, cities and homes. But we will not cooperate in the destruction of Jewish communities – we will not cooperate in expelling a single Jew from their home!”

Yesha council head Yehoshua Mor-Yosef told IsraelNationalNews.com that 150,000 protesters are expected to arrive. Due to traffic tie-ups and the closure of road 60 – the main artery passing through Samaria – many are reportedly stuck on the roads but still attempting to arrive at the rally, which is expected to last into the night.

“The settlers are Israel’s security fence!” read one large banner.

One rally participant told Israel National Radio’s Eli Stutz that although she lives in Petach Tikva, within Israel’s pre-1967 borders she could not say home while “the Prime Minister tries to give away parts of the country – my friends live there, and I care about this country. I moved here from England to strengthen Israel and not to see it surrender.”

Israel National Radio continues its live broadcast of the rally.

 

 

The latest word is the government has closed highway 60 in a blatant attempt to prevent folks from attending the rally. I'm sure the lower numbers will be presented by the media as proof of little support for the independent fundamental Jewish settlers. It really doesn't matter! These settlers are not intent on winning a popularity contest. They are only interested in obeying God. They have been mostly ignored for the past 37 years. Only now, with the road map on the front pages do they suddenly become newsworthy. Their tenacity has won the hearts of most Jews whether they participate in public demonstrations or not. I suspect the government realizes it is political suicide to strong arm this issue too much. The settlers have gone through this before. They always come back after the press loses interest, and rebuild.

 It is interesting to note that the government is not leading the people on this issue. The people refuse to follow! Oh, that Christianity would turn on the present leadership that makes no challenge to the Benny Hinn's and Pat Robertson's. Oh, that the "born again" would raise up, and repudiate the contemporary musicians, book sellers, and TV moguls who have turned the house of worship into a house of merchandise. Oh, that independent fundamental Christians would demand a return to Bible doctrine as the measure for leadership, and not be influenced by the popularity contests.

The tenacity of this generation of Christians is shamed by the tenacity of these independent fundamental Jewish settlers. The time for dispensational change is here. The rapture anymore can only remove what little wheat can still be found leaving behind the great phony tare-like monster which is this present day Apostate Christian Church! Should we not expect every earthly dispensation to suffer the same need for separation at the end? It will not be until sin is totally eradicated at the great white throne judgment that separation will no longer be a necessary end when dealing with fallible mankind.

 

 

Matt 13:24-30

24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

Relatives angry at militants after teen dies in suicide bombing after deaths of brother, cousin

Sunday January 11, 2004

By ALI DARAGHMEH

Associated Press Writer

ABLUS, West Bank (AP) Before dawn, Iyad al-Masri strapped on a belt filed with explosives Sunday and left this city apparently intent on carrying out an attack on Israelis. A few hours later, his belt malfunctioned and exploded, killing him.

Al-Masri, 17, had been throwing stones at Israeli soldiers since he was 10 years old, but the slaying of his brother and cousin by troops last week pushed him to take this drastic step, said his father, Bilal al-Masri.

Other relatives gathered at the family home bitterly blamed Palestinian militant groups for inspiring young people to kill others and themselves.

``Those who sent him are godless. His brother and cousin were just killed,'' said Yasser al-Masri, a cousin. ``How can we have three dead in the family in one week?''

Iyad's father said he thought his son had gone to work as usual until Al-Manar, a television station run by the Lebanese Hezbollah guerrilla group, named him as the bomber who died when his bomb exploded prematurely.

The TV station said the Islamic Jihad had sent the teenager, but Nablus members of the group denied that.

In 39 months of Israeli-Palestinian violence, more than 400 Israelis have been killed in 107 Palestinian suicide bombings. The last suicide attack was Dec. 25, when four Israelis were killed near Tel Aviv.

Israeli forces shot and killed Al-Masri's 15-year-old brother, Amjad, eight days ago while he was on the roof of his Nablus house, relatives said. The army said he was dropping cinder blocks on troops, but witnesses said he was just watching the soldiers pass by.

Hours later, during the funerals for Amjad and two others killed in clashes that day, the army opened fire on the procession, killing Mohammed al-Masri, a cousin.

The events had a terrible impact on Iyad, who was standing next to Mohammed when he was shot, said the father. ``Mohammed was shot in the head, his brains sprayed all over (Iyad). Later, he found pieces in his hat,'' he said.

Bilal said he was not surprised his son would want to carry out an attack. ``He would always go and throw stones at the soldiers. He was hit by rubber bullets seven times. It was easy to get him angry, to say 'OK, lets go.'''

For al-Masri's mother, Abir, the loss of a second son in eight days was too much to bear. As neighbors and family members descended, wailing, on the family house to mourn again, she sat silent and unresponsive in a corner, unable to talk or even cry.

Statistics become more then just numbers when the individuals are examined. This sad story takes all the glory out of being a Palestinian suicide bomber, and instead brings denial and blame-shifting by all those involved. Hate produces its own fruit, and this despondent speechless parent is left to bear the consequences. Israel bears some of the responsibility just by being there. They are the conquering force. America conquered Germany and Japan. We also conquered the American Indians, and annexed them despite their resistance that continues unto the present. The pacification of the Indians was necessary for America to be the bastion of Christianity that history records. Attitudes of hate such as "the only good Indian is a dead Indian" have blackened what should have been a more compasionate conquest. Hate and greed are not Christian attributes. All the glory of the United States of America can never wipe away the years of hate whether expressed against the Indians, the other minorities, or North against South. It is hate met by hate that records the worst parts of human history. It is always sad when the only solution to one sided hate is to overpower it. There was no other solution when the last generation had to crush the Nazis of Germany, and our generation is learning fast that same solution is the only solution when dealing with the terrorists.

Israel must be allowed to crush the Palestinian terrorists while doing their best to deal compassionately with peaceful Arabs living in the Holy Land. God has a plan to glorify Israel in the next dispensation. All resistance to God's plan of pacifying this generation are doomed to failure, judgment, and death. It is not just the Arabs that are in need of pacification, but this is apparently where the God of the Bible will start. It is the Arabs and Islam that are the first line of resistance to God's future plans for the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. I'm convinced Ezekiel 38 & 39 records the utter destruction of this first line of resistance. God's intent is to pacify the wild men of this generation. They must all submit to the Lord Jesus Christ, or face judgment and death. The victory of the Biblical God  is already  recorded as fact. All that is left is for the events leading to His Kingdom to take place.

 

 

Matt 25:31-34

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

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

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

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

U.S. Investigators Blame Israeli Negligence for 1967 Attack
18:08 Jan 13, '04 / 19 Tevet 5764
 

(IsraelNN.com) The U.S. investigation into the 1967 Israeli attack on the USS Liberty concluded Israel was at fault and 34 Americans were killed and 171 injured as a result of Israel attacking the vessel which was in international waters on an intelligence-gathering mission.

A U.S. State Department official stated that everything that could possibly have gone wrong went wrong in this case. He explained that Israel was at war and the Liberty crew failed to inform Israel of its presence. The official added, “This is a ship that should have been hundreds of miles from the war zone”.

Nevertheless, there are those who have blamed Israel in the past for intentionally targeting the ship, explaining Israel was “too good” for such an accident.

Others explained that if Israel wished to wipe out the Liberty, air forces bombers would have been more efficient and left no witnesses as was the case in the mistaken assault.

The attack took place in international waters on June 8, 1967, off the Sinai Peninsula.

 

 

Why should a 37 year old incident painful to both sides now be brought back in the light? How can Israel now be declared at fault? It seems to me there is enough fault to go around for everyone involved. I would suspect someone has an agenda, and are using this incident to test the waters with their own feelings about the Jews and Israel. I doubt this will go very far, but it is a warning of the underlying hate that exists within the US. It also suggests that Israel is vulnerable to attack in the arena of public opinion. Next year this same report could arouse American public opinion to the boil? The justification to turn on Israel, and its Jewish population could easily happen.

I'm convinced that is exactly what will happen. Maybe not next year, but very soon. God is clearly moving His focus from the mostly gentile Christian Church of the nations to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. The rapture will separate the true Christians from the monstrous Apostate Christian Church of today. Once that happens, this report will suddenly find legs. Israel will go from being a friend of America to its enemy. The Bible says the rapture will happen in the twinkling of an eye, and America's attitude will change toward Israel as quickly.

The Bible reveals a number of things will change as dispensational change is ushered in. The end of the times of the gentiles is one. Dispensational change means the gentile nations must step aside for Israel. Right now the Islamic Arab Palestinians are finding it next to impossible to step aside for Israel. Imagine the difficulty coming when the all powerful gentile nations must submit to Jewish rule? Judaism is about to change with the coming dispensation. Two Witnesses and 144,000 Jews are about to lead a movement back to the Bible. The blindness will be lifted from the Jews, and they will see Christ in all the Old Testament laws and ordinances. They will prepare for his coming again by building the last Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. The only Temple the Bible says that will have a throne. The gentile nations are revealed for the most part as being unwilling to surrender their power. The battle of the Jewish Kingdom against the gentile nations will end in victory for the Jews, and Armageddon for the gentiles! Only those who submit, and sttep aside for Christ will survive!

 

 

Isa 2:1-5
2:1 the word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.

2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.

3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

4 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

5 O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.

MEDIA FAITHFUL

 In response to recent Palestinian media protests in Gaza over rough treatment from Palestinian Authority officials, some 100 Palestinian journalists converged on Yasser Arafat’s presidential compound in Ramallah on Tuesday to pledge allegiance to him. The group included reporters working for international news firms, who rely heavily on local Arab journalists as news sources and for access to the PA. None of the reporters dared ask any questions of Arafat. Instead they read poems, delivered emotional statements in praise of the Palestinian leader and then lined up for photos with him. The move was likely prompted by a demonstration staged in Gaza City on Monday to protest against recent attacks and death threats against Palestinian journalists, after Al-Arabiya TV correspondent Seif al-Din Shahin was beaten by gunmen from Arafat’s Fatah faction in Gaza City last week.


SUICIDE MOTHER KILLS FOUR AT GAZA CROSSING

Four Israelis, three of them soldiers were killed Wednesday in a mid-morning suicide blast at Gaza’s Erez border crossing, as a 22-year old mother of two evaded Israeli security precautions to target the dedicated reception facility for Palestinian laborers seeking work in Israel. Hamas joined forces with the Fatah-linked al-Aksa Martyrs Brigade to claim responsibility for the attack, vowing further escalation.

 

 

There is little hope of ever getting an unbiased truthful report from such reporters, yet this is how a Palestinian State would be run. The Islamic Arab Palestinians are not interested in truth anyway. Their hate for the Jews demands this kind of reporting. They do not want truth. They want to hear only the glories of hate, murder, and torment of the Jews.

Yesterday a 22 year old mother of 2 killed 4 Israelis by blowing herself up at the Gaza check point. The Islamic Arab Palestinian press will no doubt report her as a heroic martyr. She slipped past the Israeli metal detector by lying that she had a steel pin in her leg. She left behind a 3 month, and 18 month old boy and girl. The Palestinian woman bombers have mostly been divorced woman who have no standing in the Islamic culture. Suicide is about their only option after the entire society rejects them. I doubt we will ever get the truth of what kind of family life this poor girl was facing? It certainly is not normal for a young mom to abandon such little children.

Hate mongering is how Arafat rose to become the leader of the Islamic Arab Palestinians. The Palestinian people demanded nothing less. Their hate for Jews overrides any desire to hear the truth. This is why this generation of Palestinians is ripe for judgment. God judged the same hate of the Nazis of Germany in the last generation. This time that same hate has been brought to the Holy Land! This time God will act in a much more forceful way. This time men will not be able to take the credit by biased reporting. Little Israel is about to become a mighty Kingdom that will rule the entire planet, but not through the strength of men. The truth will be proclaimed crystal clear through the events that take place, and the witnesses God raises to prominence in Jerusalem. It will be undeniable that God, and God alone has done this wondrous thing. Biblical righteousness will rule a Kingdom of truth. The desires for an Arafat full of hateful lies will find only a rod of iron as the response from the coming again Jewish King!

Ps 27:9-14

10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.
11 Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
14 Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

U.S. believes Syrian leader does not have a free hand

By Aluf Benn, Haaretz Correspondent

United States Senator Bill Nelson (Dem.-Florida), who met with Syrian President Bashar Assad last week, came away with the impression that Assad is finding it difficult to rule Syria and is under the heavy influence of the old guard in the Ba'ath regime.

In a report that reached Jerusalem on Wednesday about the Assad-Nelson talks, doubts were raised about Assad's ability to make decisions and implement them.

But an American source said Wednesday night the U.S. did not encourage Israel to avoid renewing negotiations with Syria. "We don't trust Assad and don't like him and maybe his proposal was only spin for the media. But we take Syria seriously, and if Israel wants to talk with Syria, we won't get in its way."

Nelson presented Assad with a series of difficult questions about Syrian support for Palestinian terror and Hezbollah and was met with evasiveness. The Syrian president did not deal directly with the American complaints but preferred to respond with questions of his own instead of to the point answers.

Asked about Iranian weapons transports to Hezbollah through Syria, he responded, "Is there any evidence?" In response to questions about Palestinian rejection front organizations in Damascus, he answered, "There are thousands of them in the territories and only a handful Damascus. It's not the problem."

He also said that he was misquoted in the Daily Telegraph and that he did not say Syria has the right to maintain stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons as a counter-balance to Israel's nuclear weapons.

The report repeated that Assad did not reject Israel's demand that the negotiations with Syria begin at the starting point and not where they were cut off in 2000, but the Syrian president also said that it would be best to pick up the talks were they were truncated.

The U.S. administration has yet to decide on a new policy toward Syria. Congress expects the administration to apply two of the sanctions listed in the Syrian Responsibility Act but the administration is in the midst of a debate between hard-liners against Syria and those who want to engage it in dialogue.

 

 

I think most understand George Bush Sr. made a mistake by not taking out Saddam during the first Gulf war. He did not finish the job that needed to be done. George Bush Jr. will also be guilty of not finishing the job if he does not take out Syria. It is clear to me Israel must have safe boarders. A Jewish nation at rest, and dwelling in safety would be impossible with the present Syrian government. I suspect the purpose God has in America's present involvement in the Middle East is to bring about a false sense of security for the secular Jews. A lesson must be learned that to trust the gentiles rather then the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is always a disaster. This coming false peace will only open the door for a massive three pronged Islamic invasion of an unprepared Israel.

I suppose the secular Jews would accept a Syria that acts like Egypt and Jordan. There is no love lost, but there is a feeling of security. God's plan for the Holy Land is not that the world tolerate His coming Kingdom, but that His Kingdom will conquer the world. The choice given the gentile nations will not be to let God have His way in the Holy Land, and leave us have our way in the rest of the world. The choice will be total surrender to the coming Jewish King, or judgment and death. Mankind already faces that choice, and death brings eternal condemnation to all who have refused to surrender to the Lord Jesus Christ! The only difference in this case with the coming of His Kingdom will be that this generation will be forced to face judgment at one time rather then spread out as it dies off.

The coming false peace, and Islamic invasion both have purpose in establishing God's coming Kingdom in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. Syria must give Israel a realistic feeling of security. I watch Syria, and what America will do? I know the gentile road map giving the wicked heathen Palestinians a State in the Holy Land is wrong. The pacification of Syria will have evil results, but that is the Biblical roll I suspect God expects of the nominal Christian United States. The job still needs to be finished. The Syrians and foolish Palestinians who falsely claim Philistine heritage in attempting to justify their  phony claims to the Holy Land are both about to be judged for three transgressions and for four! History does repeat itself!

 

 

Judgment for Damascus and Gaza

Amos 1:1-8
1:1 The words of Amos, who was among the herdman of Tekoa, which he saw concerning Israel in the days of Uzziah king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel, two years before the earthquake.
2 And he said, The LORD will roar from Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the habitations of the shepherds shall mourn, and the top of Carmel shall wither.
3 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have threshed Gilead with threshing instruments of iron:
4 But I will send a fire into the house of Hazael, which shall devour the palaces of Ben-hadad.
5 I will break also the bar of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitant from the plain of Aven, and him that holdeth the sceptre from the house of Eden: and the people of Syria shall go into captivity unto Kir, saith the LORD.
6 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Gaza, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they carried away captive the whole captivity, to deliver them up to Edom:
7 But I will send a fire on the wall of Gaza, which shall devour the palaces thereof:
8 And I will cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod, and him that holdeth the sceptre from Ashkelon, and I will turn mine hand against Ekron: and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish, saith the Lord GOD.

Chief Rabbis Meet the Pope
15:38 Jan 16, '04 / 22 Tevet 5764
 

Chief Rabbis Yona Metzger and Rishon LeTzion Shlomo Amar are holding a historic meeting today in the Vatican with Pope John Paul II. The official topic of the 25-minute meeting will be the increasing number of anti-Semitic acts in Europe. The Pope, 83 and not in good health, is said to be "troubled" at the revival of such sentiment among Catholics in Europe. Vatican sources said that he would express to the Chief Rabbis his "solidarity with the Jewish people and their right to live in peace." He will also speak out against terrorism.

The Chief Rabbis were also expected to ask for special permission to investigate Vatican facilities to see if traces of the vessels of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem can be found. A menorah from the Temple being carried to Rome as war booty is depicted on the Arch of Triumph, near the Roman Coliseum, which was built in the first century C.E. to celebrate the Roman takeover of the Jewish country.

The Pope met Israel's previous Chief Rabbis, Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau and Rabbi Eliyahu Bakshi-Doron, in March 2000 during his visit to Jerusalem. The Rabbis asked him to expressly apologize, during his subsequent visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum, for the Church's role, and its silence, during the Holocaust. Though he lamented the crimes of what he called the "Shoah," the Pope did not apologize.

Before the visit in 2000, Rabbi Lau recounted to reporters the history of previous rabbinic-papal relations in this century. He said that Pope Pius XII refused several requests by Chief Rabbi Isaac Herzog to meet with him before and during the Holocaust and discuss how the Church could help save Jewish lives. After the war, too, Chief Rabbi Herzog asked for the Pope's assistance in locating Jewish orphans who were cared for by Catholic families, and again, the Pope refused. In 1964, when Pope Paul VI visited Israel, he refused to meet with the Rishon LeTzion Rabbi Yitzchak Nissim in Jerusalem, and Rabbi Nissim therefore boycotted the visit altogether. Rabbi Lau noted favorably the visit by the present Pope to visit the Chief Rabbis in their offices, as well as his refusal in the past to baptize a Jewish orphan "because the parents had specifically requested that the child be brought up as a Jew."

Rabbi Lau, however, was disappointed by the lack of apology for the Church's behavior during the Holocaust, and commented that the Pope had asked forgiveness for 1492 CE (the Inquisition), but had not yet addressed the sins of 1942 CE (the Holocaust).

The issue is Roman Catholic Replacement Theology, and the Church's conquest by inheritance over the Jewish Temple. Roman Catholicism is built upon the lie that they, and not the Jews will triumph at the end of the age. The Bible is so specific that it will be the Jews who triumph that the Church had to invent what is called Replacement Theology to explain away these clear counter dictions to the Romanist revisions. The Church tells the faithful that wherever the Bible says the Jews will triumph the reader should mentally replace that reading with the Roman Catholic Church. The lie is justified by saying God has forever rejected the Jews, and replaced their future Biblical victory with the Catholic Church. The sovereignty over the Holy Land is critical to this theology because the Bible is again so specific that the victory will take place in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. Today, the pedophile priesthood, and return of the Jews to the Holy Land has exposed Replacement Theology as the lie it has always been. The inherited spoils from the Jewish Temple is all the Catholics have left to encourage the faithful to hold to this theological lie of the Church replacing the Jews. I doubt anything short of an Israeli military raid on the Vatican will accomplish the release of those Holy articles. However, I am reminded of what happened to the Philistines when they temporarily gained control over the Holy Ark. I still wonder what the images they returned with the Holy Ark as an appeasement for their ailment looked like? I wonder if those 5 images might also be part of the Vatican spoils hidden away in those vast catacombs of secret Catholic treasures? Gentile humiliation at the hands of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is something that the Popes would certainly keep hidden.

The Jewish Menorah on the relief at the Arch of Triumph in Italy symbolizes the continuing dominance over the Jews during the times of the gentiles. The era began at the destruction of the First Jewish Temple by the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar. God offered the world the Kingdom at the first coming of Christ. It was rejected by the world as symbolized by this Roman relief showing the utter contempt of God's Holy Land, Jerusalem, and Temple Mount. The times of the gentiles is ending. The next Biblical dispensation is about to be ushered in. The last Biblical Jewish Temple (Ezekiel's Temple) will indicate the end for gentile rule. It will be constructed by a foundational generation of redeemed, heart circumcised, back to the Bible, Jews. This Kingdom will not be offered to the world this time, but will be a mighty force of righteousness as demanded by the coming perfect, pure, and holy Jewish King. Gentile humiliation at the feet of the Jews is coming with the Kingdom!

6:1 And the ark of the LORD was in the country of the Philistines seven months.
2 And the Philistines called for the priests and the diviners, saying, What shall we do to the ark of the LORD? tell us wherewith we shall send it to his place.
3 And they said, If ye send away the ark of the God of Israel, send it not empty; but in any wise return him a trespass offering: then ye shall be healed, and it shall be known to you why his hand is not removed from you.
4 Then said they, What shall be the trespass offering which we shall return to him? They answered, Five golden emerods, and five golden mice, according to the number of the lords of the Philistines: for one plague was on you all, and on your lords.
5 Wherefore ye shall make images of your emerods, and images of your mice that mar the land; and ye shall give glory unto the God of Israel: peradventure he will lighten his hand from off you, and from off your gods, and from off your land.

Ambassador Mazel’s "Performance Art"
17:26 Jan 18, '04 / 24 Tevet 5764
 

Israeli Ambassador to Sweden Tzvi Mazel caused an international diplomatic incident Friday with his act of protest against an installation art piece equating an Islamist suicide bomber with her Israeli victims.

Israeli Ambassador to Sweden Tzvi Mazel caused an international diplomatic incident Friday with his act of protest against an installation art piece equating an Islamist suicide bomber with her Israeli victims. The Ambassador literally pulled the plug on the exhibit, on display at Stockholm’s Museum of National Antiquities.

The piece, entitled "Snow White and the Madness of Truth", consisted of a pool of red liquid - to represent blood - with a miniature raft carrying a smiling headshot of the female terrorist who blew up the Maxim restaurant in Haifa on October 4, 2003, killing 21 Israelis. The fairytale-like text accompanying the display referred to the terrorist as "Snow White", "you poor child", and mourned the loss of her "innocent heart". The text concludes: "And many people are indeed crying: the Zer Aviv family, the Almog family, / and all the relatives and friends of the dead and the wounded / and the red looked beautiful upon the white."

Enraged by the artistic defamation of the Israeli victims of terror, and the whitewashing of the Islamist terrorist, Ambassador Mazel unplugged the floodlights illuminating the exhibit, letting one fall in the water. He was subsequently asked to leave the museum premises.

The Ambassador explained afterwards that he did not act until Swedish officials refused to comply with his requests to remove the exhibit. Mazel told the Swedish press, "As ambassador, I could not remain indifferent to such an obscene misrepresentation of reality."

President Moshe Katzav, Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, former Prime Minister Ehud Barak (who appointed Mazel to his post) and other Israeli officials have expressed their unequivocal support for the Israeli Ambassador to Sweden. Prime Minister Sharon called Mazel and praised his "stand against anti-Semitism." Public Security Minister Tzachi Hanegbi praised Mazel, saying that he should receive a special citation for his actions. Minister-Without-Portfolio Natan Sharansky stated that anyone supporting the "art" exhibit that glorified the Maxim Restaurant suicide bomber encourages and supports those who wish to eradicate the Jewish People.

Foreign Ministry officials immediately went on the offensive, attacking the Swedish government for allowing the display at an exhibit linked with a state-sponsored upcoming international conference on genocide. According to the Foreign Ministry, the display was a violation of understandings reached with the Swedes ahead of the conference. Therefore, "if it is not removed, Israel will reconsider its participation in the conference," officials said.

In contrast, Deputy Knesset Speaker Mohammed Barakeh is calling for the dismissal of Israel’s Ambassador to Sweden, calling on cultural and artistic institutions in Israel to make their protests heard. He called the ambassador’s actions an unacceptable act against a world renowned artist.

The artists behind the installation piece are Dror Feiler, an expatriate Israeli, and his Swedish wife, Gunilla Skold Feiler.

The Swedish government is expected to summon Ambassador Mazel on Monday for "clarifications". On Saturday, Swedish Foreign Ministry officials said they "maintain that it is unacceptable to destroy works of art in this way." The Swedish Ambassador to Israel said today that his government cannot and will not interfere in the art exhibit by asking for its removal.

Within hours of the Stockholm incident, a Hebrew-language petition in support of Ambassador Mazel was already published on-line at http://www.ezra.org.il/shagrir/. It has garnered more than 2500 signatures as of press time.

 

 

 Imagine an art exhibit next to this one picturing hundreds of women office workers burning to death with a benevolent Osama ben Ladan smiling reverently overhead. I'm sure had the American Ambassador not kicked it down he would be brought back for tar and feathering. Expressions of hate that bring joy to those who relish in hate is not art. It is evil! This kind of so called art will never be allowed in the coming Kingdom. I'm sure there were many who were absolutely giddy when they decided this, so called art exhibit, be selected for public show. They knew how this would drive a nail into the heart of every patriotic Jew. Now, they demand an apology in the name of art?

I wonder where they were when Arafat's Palestinian Authority took control of guarding the art of the Gaza. The PA demanded Israel leave all art objects in place before the take over. A Byzantine mosaic rendition of King David was specifically mentioned as an artifact that must remain in Palestinian hands. It was some months later that a Western reporter accidentally came upon the gauged-out mosaic of the oldest rendition of King David in the world. The treatment of religious art by the Palestinians is the real scandal in the world of art today! Not, the suppression of evil as demonstrated by the Israeli Ambassador.

The lack of protest over the destruction of the oldest rendition of David, and the outrage at the Israeli Ambassador pulling the plug on the Islamic approved Snow White encourages the evil people of this world to do their worst! The favorite art coming out of the Palestinian Authority is Ariel Sharon biting off the head of an Islamic baby. This culture has turned art into evil, and evil into art. Now, the sophisticated Swedes representing European culture have put their okey-dokey on this filth. They would follow the lowest culture in the world that nurtures the most animalistic behavior now being expressed against Jews to lead the way in art appreciation for this generation!

It is no surprise to me that this is the generation God has chosen to experience dispensational change, and the end of gentile rule. Acceptable art is a good measure of how depraved a culture has become. The MTV generation seems ripe for judgment in my estimation. I do not expect revival from the reprobate Christian Church now standing in the main sream. A new dispensation is the Biblical answer to depravity run ridiculous.

The Kingdom of David Coming Again

2 Sam 7:8-17

8 Now therefore so shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over my people, over Israel:
9 And I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies out of thy sight, and have made thee a great name, like unto the name of the great men that are in the earth.
10 Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime,
11 And as since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel, and have caused thee to rest from all thine enemies. Also the LORD telleth thee that he will make thee an house.
12 And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom.
13 He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever.
14 I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men:
15 But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee.
16 And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever.
17 According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak unto David.

Female Terrorist Adulteress Atoned By Murdering Jews
17:35 Jan 19, '04 / 25 Tevet 5764

It now appears that the female terrorist murderer who said, on her way to murdering four Jews, that she had always dreamt of dying for her people, was not as ideologically-driven as she appeared.

 

"Hamas took advantage of our compassion," said IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Moshe Yaalon yesterday, "when it sent a female suicide terrorist disguised as a cripple, and the ones to pay for it now will be the Palestinian population." Yaalon made the remarks when he visited Erez Crossing in northern Gaza, where four security personnel were felled last Wednesday by the murderer. She cried and begged to be allowed through a checkpoint, and then capitalized on the moment when a guard took pity on her and detonated her explosives amidst a group of Israelis.

In her pre-suicide video speech, the woman - a mother of a year-old baby and a 3-year-old toddler - smilingly boasted of her long-time dream to "become a martyr" for her people. "It was always my wish to turn my body into deadly shrapnel against the Zionists and to knock on the doors of heaven with the skulls of Zionists," she said.

It now, appears, however, that she was not as ideologically-inclined as it appeared - and that in fact her act was simply a quadruple murder designed to "solve" her own personal family problems. After the bombing, AP reported, the murderer's family refused to speak to reporters, a rarity in these cases, and did not set up a mourning tent for her. Israeli security officials have been quoted as saying that she was in fact an adulteress who was forced to carry out the attack to restore her family's honor. As has been widely documented, Moslem women in the PA and elsewhere who are accused of adultery are not infrequently killed by their relatives in what is known as "honor killings."

It was further reported that the terrorist's illicit lover recruited her and gave her the suicide bomb belt. PA security officials said her husband drove her to Erez to carry out the attack.

PA sources denied the reports regarding the motivation, and continued to give assurances that she was religiously-motivated. Hamas, however, showing flexibility in meeting the needs of the times, has reportedly adapted its traditional position against the use of woman suicide bombers, and permits such murders in two cases: when the woman is more likely to successfully carry out the assignment, or when she is need of "atonement" for having committed family-related sins.

 

 

 

The glory of suicide bombers takes another dimming when exposed by the truth. Allah appears to have gotten hoodwinked again by the wicked Palestinians. I often wondered how Islamic theology dealt with female suicide bombers? It seemed incongruent for them to receive 72 sex kittens for all eternity as their reward? Now, I understand it is supposed that the family honor is restored by such a foolish sacrifice. I wonder why this bomber's family would not even erect a mourning tent for her? The reason is the family honor would only be magnified as filled with sin. This family will never find honor, but must try its best to hid from the truth.

The attempt to glorify woman suicide bombers as being done in (see yesterday) Swedish approved art can never stand in the light of truth. The ultimate truth is these high minded hate talking macho Palestinian supporters must hid behind the skirts of women. The old men leading the Palestinians use woman and children for their own purposes of staying in power. These are cowardly wicked old men who run the religion and government. They shed only crocodile tears over those gullible enough to believe them! I doubt they even shed a crocodile tear for this used and abused mother of two. The thought that she could restore her infidelity by murdering Jews makes a mockery of all Islamic sects and cultures. Such evil lies are each recorded by the God of the Bible, and a day of coming judgment will bring them all into the light of truth!

 

 

The Unfaithful Wife Can't Atone on Her Own

Num 5:19-23

19 And the priest shall charge her by an oath, and say unto the woman, If no man have lain with thee, and if thou hast not gone aside to uncleanness with another instead of thy husband, be thou free from this bitter water that causeth the curse:

20 But if thou hast gone aside to another instead of thy husband, and if thou be defiled, and some man have lain with thee beside thine husband:

21 Then the priest shall charge the woman with an oath of cursing, and the priest shall say unto the woman, The LORD make thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when the LORD doth make thy thigh to rot, and thy belly to swell;

22 And this water that causeth the curse shall go into thy bowels, to make thy belly to swell, and thy thigh to rot: And the woman shall say, Amen, amen.

23 And the priest shall write these curses in a book, and he shall blot them out with the bitter water:

NINE INJURED IN SETTLEMENT SYNAGOGUE SCUFFLE

Six protesters and three Israeli soldiers were injured Tuesday during clashes over the demolition of an illegal settlement synagogue at the West Tapuah outpost in northern Samaria. Sixteen settlers were arrested in the scuffle, which broke out as soldiers and police arrived to carry out an IDF evacuation decree upheld earlier in the day by the High Court.


EARTHQUAKE AHEAD:

A geological survey of Jerusalem, released on the heels of last month’s devastating earthquake in Iran, warns that the Old City and Temple Mount could suffer extensive damage in a future major earthquake expected within the next 50 years. Besides sitting atop a maze of cisterns and tunnels, the elevated Temple Mount and much of the walled Old City rest on layers of debris and rubble left by conquering armies, and not solid bedrock, the survey explains. It urges Jerusalem's municipal planners to reinforce weak structures, especially since the political fallout from the collapse of Islamic sites on the Mount could be of biblical proportions. The last major earthquake in the region hit in 1927 in nearby Jericho, along the active Great Rift Valley fault line.

 

 

The clash of Jews fighting Jews indicates the great divisions that exist in the Holy Land. This issue is over the tenacious independent  fundamental Jewish settlers who are intent on conquering the Holy Land God has miraculously once again given the Jews in 1967. The land of Yesha no longer belongs to Jordan. In fact, Jordan has no interest in it anymore, and has ceded it to its own fate. The Jordanians want no part of the wicked Islamic Palestinian Arabs they left behind. Were these evil people not fighting the Jews, they would be fighting to overthrow the Jordanian government. The vicious terrorism of today would be aimed at Jordan rather then the Jews. These Jewish settlers are heroically standing in the front lines of battle with these wild beasts rejected by all others. The world pays to keep them contained in the Holy Land aware of their high jacking of international flights, and disruption of the peaceful facade promoted at the Olympic Games. The gentile world is content to let the Jews be the focal point of all this hate. It is a double tragedy when the Jews standing in the forefront must also contend with the secular political forces from behind.

It is an impossible task for these independent fundamental Jewish settlers to win such a battle, but impossible is not in the Biblical vocabulary when it comes to the Biblical God. Dispensational change is what is happening right now in the Holy Land. It is the process of bending the unbendable into a form pleasing to the God of righteousness. It is not just the Islamic Palestinian Arabs who must bend and change, but the secular Jews also! God's plan is not to stop until the entire planet is formed into a Biblically righteous environment for His coming Kingdom. What can't bend will be broken by judgment and death. The power to accomplish such a wonderment is ready. The awesome God of the Bible will accomplish all that He has already written  about the coming Kingdom. All cultures, religions, and governments must step aside to see what this mighty God is about to do!

 

 

Ps 50:1-6
50:1 A Psalm of A'-saph.

The mighty God, even the LORD, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.

2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.

3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him.

4 He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people.

5 Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.

6 And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah.

Outpost activists erect makeshift synagogue at demolition site

By Haaretz Service

Only hours after IDF troops demolished the Kahane College synagogue building Tuesday in an illegal outpost adjacent to the West Bank settlement of Tapuah, settlers overnight erected a makeshift synagogue at the hilltop site, settlers said Wednesday.

"There hasn't been one outpost evacuated by the army which has not been rebuilt," West Tapuah activist David Ivri told Israel Radio Wednesday.

During the afternoon demolition operation Tuesday, 25 people, including eight minors, were arrested and taken to the police station for questioning on suspicion of interfering with an army operation and violating a military order forbidding their entry into the area. One of the women present also attacked a policeman, breaking his nose and biting his hand, the police said.

Soon after the troops left, "Volunteers started to gather planks and materials from the wreckage and to rebuild the building," Ivri said.

The army began the demolition operation at about 1 P.M., a few hours after the High Court of Justice approved the move, in the hope of completing it before right-wing activists had time to arrive and confront them. Its first step was to declare the area a closed military territory. However, about 100 settlers and members of Kahanist movements had already arrived and began violently resisting the soldiers.

The ones who failed to arrive in time were the 160 policemen who were supposed to assist the army. However, the soldiers decided not to wait for them and instead began arresting the rioters. The first policemen arrived 40 minutes later and took charge of the arrested men.

By 4 P.M., the illegally built edifice was destroyed and the ground had been cleared.

But in the evening, after the soldiers had left, the activists returned and began setting up a temporary building on the site to serve as a synagogue in place of the "Kahane College." ...

 

 

 

Tenacious is not an understatement when it comes to these independent fundamental Jewish settlers. They just won't give in. My old army motto "when the going gets tough, the tough get going" has genuine application among these settlers. They will not be moved! They have a genuine mandate in the Bible to posses this Holy Land, and they are doing it! I know when the time is right God will raise up Two Old Testament type prophets in the city of Jerusalem. This same tenacity will be applied to the building of the last Jewish Temple. The Bible mandates Ezekiel's Temple (Ezek 40 - 48) be built on the same site as the First and Second Temples! When these Two Witnesses proclaim this mandate from the God of the Bible, it will be time for Islam to step aside. It will be time for the gentile road map plans to step aside. It will be time for Judaism to return to the Bible, and begin practicing the Book of Leviticus once again.

The Kidron Valley next to the Temple will run red with the blood of sacrifice once again as God prepares to change dispensations. There is no need for a Newer Testament to define the next dispensation. The Old Testament will be sufficient. The Lord Jesus Christ will be recognized in every statute and ordinance. A rightful understanding of how grace and the law flow seamlessly together will be the enlightenment of the age. Biblical Judaism will acknowledge Calvary with every Levitical drop of blood shed on the Temple Mount. The Messiah shall sit on His throne, and all who have submitted to His rule will rejoice.

It is going to take a tenacious people to stand with God as the world is turned upside-down. The tenacious character of the Apostle Paul could be recognized before his redemption. I wonder if I'm seeing that same tenacity needed for those who will be the foundation of the coming dispensation? The true Church is about to be raptured leaving behind only Apostate Christianity. The Church age will end, and the Kingdom will come. The Kingdom will not be established in New York, USA, or Rome, Italy. It will be established in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount!

 

 

The Law, and The Land

2 And it shall be on the day when ye shall pass over Jordan unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, that thou shalt set thee up great stones, and plaister them with plaister:

3 And thou shalt write upon them all the words of this law, when thou art passed over, that thou mayest go in unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, a land that floweth with milk and honey; as the LORD God of thy fathers hath promised thee.

4 Therefore it shall be when ye be gone over Jordan, that ye shall set up these stones, which I command you this day, in mount Ebal, and thou shalt plaister them with plaister.

Good Stranger

Num 9:14

14 And if a stranger shall sojourn among you, and will keep the passover unto the LORD; according to the ordinance of the passover, and according to the manner thereof, so shall he do: ye shall have one ordinance, both for the stranger, and for him that was born in the land.

(KJV)


Bad Stranger

Num 1:51

51 And when the tabernacle setteth forward, the Levites shall take it down: and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites shall set it up: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.

BI-NATIONAL STATE

A Palestinian negotiator seems to be calling for a bi-national state in light of the security fence Israel is erecting around Palestinian towns. Former Palestinian Culture Minister and Geneva Accord negotiator Yasser Abed Rabbo said the fence will leave Palestinians in what he called Bantustan-like enclaves and would lead Palestinians to demand a bi-national state "within a decade or two." Former Knesset Speaker and Geneva Accord participant Avraham Burg also criticized Israel. Burg predicted that the Geneva Accords would solidify Israel's place as "the national home of the Israelis," but he would not exclude the possibility that if "after 50 or 100 years we decide to have a confederation [between Israel and Palestine], so be it." 

 

 

There are a lot more options other then the Gentile Road Map that could represent the future for the Holy Land. This Bi-National State is one of those possibilities. I doubt we are going to go another 50 or 100 years before the Kingdom comes, but should the Lord tarry this scenario of Bi-Nationalism is very realistic. The reality on the ground is that the Palestinian enclaves are being systematically fenced in. I had long ago recognized the only way to deal with animalistic behavior is to kill it, or cage it up. The caging option is by far preferred, and that seems exactly what reality is forcing Israel to do.

The Bible speaks much on the issue of good strangers, and bad strangers who live in the Holy Land. These are non-Jews (gentiles) who are either submitted to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, or hostel. There is no doubt the Islamic Palestinian Arabs are hostel. There are several Hebrew words used for these bad strangers - "Nekar," "Nokriy," "Towshab, and "Zuwr." They all describe bad gentiles living in the Holy Land who are hostel to God, and enemies of the Jews. "Palestinian" is just another word to be added to the list.

There is a Biblical non-Jew stranger living in the Land who does find acceptance in God's eyes. Only the "Ger" use of the word translated stranger has good things said about him. Only this gentile is approved by God to participate in Jewish life. Only the "Ger" can go to the Temple and sacrifice. Only the "Ger" is to be legally accepted by all the Jews as if he were "born in the Land." Jewish judges are warned not to discriminate against the "Ger" dwelling in their midst. There is a place for Palestinian Arabs in the Holy Land, but it is only by changing from the bad stranger to the good stranger. The "Nekar," "Nokriy," "Towshab, "Zuwr," znd the "Palestinian" must become the "Ger" in order to stay peacefully in the Holy Land.

JOURNAL: US LOOKING FOR SHOWDOWN WITH SYRIA

 

A leading military intelligence digest reported that the United States is considering provoking a military confrontation with Syria by attacking Hizb’Allah bases near the Syrian border in Lebanon.

 

According to the respected London-based Jane's Intelligence Digest, in an article published Friday, US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld is considering multi-faceted US attacks conducted within the framework of the global war on terrorism that are likely to focus on Hizb’Allah bases in the Bekaa Valley.

 

But deployment of US special forces in the Bekaa Valley, where most of Syria's occupation forces in Lebanon are based, would be highly inflammatory and would "almost certainly involve a confrontation with Syrian troops," the digest reported.

 

Jane’s said Washington's benefits from a confrontation with Syria include pressuring Damascus into ending its support for anti-Israel Palestinian groups; persuading Syria to abandon its weapons of mass destruction and to withdraw its troops from Lebanon; stimulating a situation where Syrian President Bashar Assad can be ousted; and crushing Hizb’Allah and ending its presumed connections with al-Qaida.

 

A US attack against would “fuel Muslim and Arab hostility toward the US at a time when US-led occupation forces are fighting the ongoing insurgency in Iraq.”

 

The journal noted that the US administration has long considered Damascus "a prime candidate for regime-change."

 

"Targeting Syria via Lebanon, the only concrete political influence Damascus has to show following decades of radical diplomacy could prove to be a means to that end."

 

The journal also commented on Israel’s retaliatory strike in Lebanon this week after an Israeli soldier died driving over a landmine in southern Lebanon.

 

"Israel's air-strike in southern Lebanon earlier this week is very unlikely to be the last time Israeli forces cross the border to strike at targets alleged to be militant bases and training camps."

 

 

 

 

I'm convinced the Gulf War will never be completed until Syria is subdued. It seems God has called the Bush family to accomplish this one task. A pacified Syria seems to be the roll  America has in the big picture of what God is doing to bring in the Kingdom. I'm also convinced the proposed Gentile Road Map is taking America's roll in the Middle East too far!

There is a phony peace coming to Israel. It is as sure as the Bible that Israel will put their trust in places other then the God of Abraham. Isaac, and Jacob. A lesson must be taught, and applied before the Jews will be ready to build the Last Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. The next major prophetic event will be the rapture of all the truly born again Christians from out of the great whore making up Apostate Christianity. The next event after that will be the appearance of the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11. They will come to Jerusalem at a time of false peace and safety. It will take a lot of convincing that God's way is the only way as revealed in the Bible. I doubt a call to build Ezekiel's Temple will have much support at a time when Israel is comfortably at rest. The Islamic Invasion of Ezekiel 38 & 39 will not only prove how phony the gentile peace was, but also provide the Two Witnesses an opportunity to manifest the power God has given them to accomplish the task of building His Temple in preparation for the return of the Messiah. Ezekiel's Temple is the only Jewish Temple that has a Throne! The antichrist will sit on that throne at the midpoint of the Great Tribulation as he attempts to usurp the glory that is intended for Christ and Christ alone! The road to Armageddon will be opened. The real peace that God will bring to Israel after the destruction of Islam in the Middle East will be challenged by the antichrist. His intent will be to re-establish gentile peace over Kingdom peace. It is not going to work.

Syria as well as America are but pawns in the great moves unfolding in the Holy Land. The Coming Kingdom is the only important thing the Bible says we should be fixing our eyes upon. The whole world must learn that peace without God will never work. The only meaningful peace can only be centered in the coming Temple as described in Ezekiel 40 - 48. It is no coincidence that Ezekiel's Temple follows chronologically the Last Jihad of Ezekiel 38 & 39!!

 

 

Ezek 38:7-12

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.
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.

Israel's New Attorney General to Decide on Sharon Bribery Charges
Ross Dunn

Jerusalem
25 Jan 2004, 13:50 UTC

Israel's cabinet has selected a new attorney general, one of whose first tasks will be to decide whether to charge Prime Minister Ariel Sharon in connection with bribery allegations. Some lawyers in the Israeli Justice Ministry have concluded that there is sufficient evidence to launch a prosecution.

The Israeli cabinet approved Deputy Attorney General Menachem Mazuz to serve as the country's top legal officer.

One of the first items on Mr. Mazuz's new agenda will be to determine whether Mr. Sharon should be indicted for allegedly accepting bribes from an Israeli property developer, David Appel.

Mr. Appel was charged last week with paying Mr. Sharon a total of $690,000 in 1999 to promote a project in Greece. At the time, Mr. Sharon was foreign minister and attempting a bid for the leadership of the Likud Party.

Mr. Appel also allegedly sought Mr. Sharon's influence to win approval for land deals near Tel Aviv.

The indictment in the Tel Aviv Magistrates' Court says Mr. Appel paid the money though Mr. Sharon's son Gilad, who was hired as an adviser, even though he did not appear to have any relevant qualifications.

Neither Mr. Sharon nor his son has been charged, but lawyers in the Justice Ministry say investigations are continuing, and some believe there is already enough evidence to issue indictments.

The final say will rest with Mr. Mazuz.

Mr. Sharon and his deputy, Ehud Olmert, did not take part in the cabinet vote because this may have been seen as a clear conflict of interest.

Mr. Olmert is also implicated in the indictment against Mr. Appel. He is alleged to have received bribes from the property developer when he was mayor of Jerusalem in the late 1990s, to help win support for the project in Greece.

Mr. Mazuz has not commented on the case, but his brother, Baruch, told Israel army radio that he would make a determination on purely legal grounds.

The brother says the new attorney general does not identify himself with anyone politically and is aware of the weight of responsibility on his shoulders. He said Mr. Mazuz would make what he called a "clean decision."

 

 

This has the potential of a Watergate type revelation that may unseat Sharon. It is true that God is the one who controls the secular government leaders throughout the world. These leaders most often reflect the hearts of the people, but are limited. When they overstep their bounds as determined by God, they are replaced. This scandal may well be the end of Ariel Sharon. He seems to waffle in his support of the independent fundamental Jewish settlers always looking for the best ground for political gain, but he has stopped looking at what God demands of him as leader of the Israeli people.

God does not use perfect men as history well affirms. The bounds of their leadership seems a fact planted in their own soul. When pride causes them to overstep those bounds there are consequences. Those consequences where experienced by both Nebuchadnezzar and his son Belshazzar. The same God is still in charge of the Kingdom of men. It may well be the time for Sharon to be replaced? The issue of the independent fundamental Jewish settlers may be the boundary he has overstepped?

A day is coming when all will be made clear. Each of us will find what part we played as God worked out the affairs of His big plan for mankind, and salvation. The clash of sin filled man's free will, and the sovereignty of a holy, pure, and absolutely just God will fit together in perfect harmony. Until then, we can watch with amassment as God brings in His promised Kingdom in His way.

"Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done"

 

 

God Rules the Kingdom of Men

Dan 5:18-25

18 O thou king, the most high God gave Nebuchadnezzar thy father a kingdom, and majesty, and glory, and honour:
19 And for the majesty that he gave him, all people, nations, and languages, trembled and feared before him: whom he would he slew; and whom he would he kept alive; and whom he would he set up; and whom he would he put down.
20 But when his heart was lifted up, and his mind hardened in pride, he was deposed from his kingly throne, and they took his glory from him:
21 And he was driven from the sons of men; and his heart was made like the beasts, and his dwelling was with the wild asses: they fed him with grass like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven; till he knew that the most high God ruled in the kingdom of men, and that he appointeth over it whomsoever he will.
22 And thou his son, O Belshazzar, hast not humbled thine heart, though thou knewest all this;
23 But hast lifted up thyself against the LORD of heaven; and they have brought the vessels of his house before thee, and thou, and thy lords, thy wives, and thy concubines, have drunk wine in them; and thou hast praised the gods of silver, and gold, of brass, iron, wood, and stone, which see not, nor hear, nor know: and the God in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are all thy ways, hast thou not glorified:
24 Then was the part of the hand sent from him; and this writing was written.
25 And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN.

Global warming will plunge Britain into new ice age 'within decades'

By Geoffrey Lean, Environment Editor

25 January 2004

 

Britain is likely to be plunged into an ice age within our lifetime by global warming, new research suggests.

A study, which is being taken seriously by top government scientists, has uncovered a change "of remarkable amplitude" in the circulation of the waters of the North Atlantic.

Similar events in pre-history are known to have caused sudden "flips" of the climate, bringing ice ages to northern Europe within a few decades. The development - described as "the largest and most dramatic oceanic change ever measured in the era of modern instruments", by the US Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, which led the research - threatens to turn off the Gulf Stream, which keeps Europe's weather mild.

If that happens, Britain and northern Europe are expected to switch abruptly to the climate of Labrador - which is on the same latitude - bringing a nightmare scenario where farmland turns to tundra and winter temperatures drop below -20C. The much-heralded cold snap predicted for the coming week would seem balmy by comparison.

A report by the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme in Sweden - launched by Nobel prize-winner Professor Paul Crutzen and other top scientists - warned last week that pollution threatened to "trigger changes with catastrophic consequences" like these.

 

 

It is God not men who control the mighty powers of the environment. One volcano can change the world environmental balance in an instant, and processes already programmed into this massive system of land, oceans, and atmosphere bring back the intended balance. Oh that men would praise the LORD!

These environmental terrorists are out to scare the world into political submission. They would have you believe they can control the forces of earth, sea, and air so we don't need God! They want you to follow their lead in usurping what has always been God's domain. It is interesting to note how they cover all the bases. First they tell you the sky is falling, and then no matter which way the weather flows they can blame the other guys for having caused it. They then say don't turn to God, but give us tour vote with billions upon billions of dollars. They would have you believe through their intelligence they can maintain environmental stability. Only men filled with their own pride could develop such a scenario. I suppose they would claim the same environmental changes that are supposedly causing the sky to fall today are the proof of their success were they ever to gain the ear of the world.

It is true that man must be reasonable. Over fishing, over harvesting, over dumping all change the local environments that in turn effect the global environment, but this is the punishment for wickedness. There are fruits of sin, and men will reap what they sow. The answer is to turn wicked men to God rather then other sinful men.

God uses the environment to put the fear of the LORD into the  hearts of men. God's ability to calm the wind and waves at just the right time is the testimony of many a seafarer. These men did not turn to the environmentalist for relief, but to the God of creation who made the wind and waves. The same God who solved the curse of sin though the sacrifice, and resurrection of His only begotten Son. Oh that men would praise the LORD!

It is sad that some men would want that praise of restoration for themselves. They tell you the sky is falling, but they have the power to calm the seas by their own will through their own intelligence. They want praise for things too great. They want men to follow their political agenda as thanks for their phony claims. The pollution of the Bible is by far the greater wickedness. The Coming Kingdom is where God intends men to turn when the next dispensation begins not the politics of men. Oh that men would praise the LORD.

Ps 107:21-36

21 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
22 And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.
23 They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;
24 These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.
25 For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.
26 They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.
27 They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits' end.
28 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.
29 He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.
30 Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.
31 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
32 Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.
33 He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground;
34 A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
35 He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings.
36 And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation;

Kerry, Dean Both Suggest Clinton As Middle East Envoy
By Julie Stahl

CNSNews.com Jerusalem Bureau Chief
January 27, 2004

Jerusalem (CNSNews.com) - Democratic presidential hopeful John Kerry has as much foreign policy experience as former
U.S. Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton when they took office, an analyst here noted on Tuesday.

Kerry and Democratic nominee Howard Dean made known their views on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict ahead of the New Hampshire primaries on Tuesday.

Former Vermont governor
Dean said he believes the administration should pressure both Israel and the Palestinians to return to the negotiating table.

Dean also said the U.S. should be deeply involved in the Middle East; it should give more financial aid to the Palestinians to convince them to abandon the 'right of return' for millions of refugees and their descendants; and that Israel should be willing to return to the pre-1967 ceasefire lines with Jordan if it wants to live in security.

Dean said he would propose that former President Clinton become the special Middle East envoy.

Kerry said he would also consider Clinton or maybe Carter as his special envoy to the Middle East.

(When President Bush took office there was some speculation that even he would appoint Clinton as a special Middle East envoy.)

Kerry said the U.S. should give more leverage to the Palestinian Authority "to be able to become stronger on the ground in the West Bank than Hamas is."

Israel is a key U.S. ally, he said, and Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is interested in peace.

"I believe Ariel Sharon is willing to make peace, I really believe it," Kerry said in New Hampshire on Monday.

David Froelich, longtime Democrat and retired head of Democrats Abroad here in Israel, said he didn't trust Dean but that Kerry has as much experience as his predecessors.

Dean is "flip-flopping" daily, Froelich said.

Kerry would be "as knowledgeable as" Bush and Carter and Clinton when it comes to foreign policy, he said.

 

 

 

I'm convinced the Gentile Road Map is unbiblical and Satanic, but there are even worse proposals then the Road Map! Bill Clinton with the liberal Jewish politicians Rabin and Barak authored and supported the worst decision ever made in the Holy Land since the recent return of the Jews. It is the Oslo Peace Accords which is now known as the Oslo War. It allowed Arafat and his armed goons to return to the Holy Land from exile. All that happened was terrorism increased ten fold in spite of all the promises Arafat made. Arafat revealed his road to peace was to exterminate the Jews, or at minimum torture the Jewish people forever. The Oslo Peace turned into the Oslo War. Now, the Southern Baptist who held the office of President of the United States is in line again to apply his liberal approach to peace in the Holy Land. It is disaster ten fold waiting to happen!

The future for the Holy Land is not in politics. It certainly is not in religion as it is today. The future of the Holy Land is only as it is written in the Bible. Dispensational change always comes when man has failed. God ended His focus on the Jews 2000 years ago. Not one Old Testament prophet has been sent since before the First advent of Christ with the exception of John the Baptist. Today, main stream Christianity as exemplified by the acceptability of the Jimmy Carters, and Bill Clintons indicates failure. Teaching a man or a village how to fish is more important then teaching the Bible. The time for dispensational change is now.

The Holy Land is unique only in the Bible. God said it was His land, and in Genesis chapter 12 (beginning book of the Bible) He sent Abraham to see this land of promise. The seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were given the promise of living on that land as long as they obeyed God. The destruction of the First Jewish Temple was because the Jews became idolatrous. They spent 80 years in dispersion. God allowed them to return, but this time they could not recognize their Messiah, and the Second Temple was destroyed. The Jews spent 2000 years in dispersion. Now they are back! This time they will not stray from God or the Messiah. This time the promised Jewish Kingdom will be established to rule forever. 1000 years of rule on terra firma, and then on to eternity in full glory after the Great White Throne Judgment. It is all in the Bible along with  the great promise God has given to all who will come to the Messiah of the Holy Land. Neither the politics, or the religions of man can bring such a wonderment to fruition. It can only be done by the God of the Bible!

 

 

The Bible - The Land

Gen 12:1-7
12:1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:

2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:

3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

4 So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.

5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.

6 And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.

7 And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.

MK Eldad: No Deal
16:51 Jan 28, '04 / 5 Shevat 5764


MK Aryeh Eldad (National Union) was asked today how he feels about the deal offered to the Yesha Council: the destruction of seven towns in exchange for a moratorium on further expulsions. Eldad said that he is "of course against any deal having to do with ceding parts of the Land of Israel, but even if I did not feel that way, I would still recommend not entering into any such deal with Ariel Sharon. He is the man who originally mocked the idea of a partition fence, and yet now is building it with vigor; he was against a Palestinian state, and now favors it; he built the Yesha communities, and now wants to uproot them; he was always strongly against a unilateral withdrawal under fire, and now he supports it, under the pressure of terrorism... This has nothing to do with parliamentary no-confidence, but rather on the personal level; when you make a deal with someone, you want to make sure that it will be carried out as agreed."

Asked at what point he would advise his party colleagues to quit the government, MK Eldad said that this is not a fair question: "I was originally against joining the government, such that many red lines have already been crossed from my standpoint. I can say, however, that the official National Union party policy is that the moment the Cabinet decides on the removal of a Yesha community or the establishment of a Palestinian state, we quit the coalition."
 

 

 

It is disgusting to watch how the politics work around the Holy Land. How God must laugh as the secular politicians trip over their own tongues trying to stay in power. Today's political truth becomes tomorrows lie as history progresses. There can be no greater proof of who is behind the secular politics surrounding the Holy Land! the father of lies is exposed again and again.

This attempt to bargain with the independent fundamental Jewish settlers is a challenge to see if they will compromise their Biblical ideals. It does not seem to have much interest, and is even pushing settler supporters into quitting the government in disgust. 

It is the frustration of the powerful finding they have no power that causes God to laugh. It is the frustration of trying to go against God's plan for the Holy Land. The secular Jewish government is frustrated. The animalistic Palestinian culture is frustrated, The entire Islamic world is frustrated. The powerful religions of the world are frustrated. And, the gentile dominance over planet earth is frustrated. Only God can laugh at the frustrations of insignificant men who see themselves in God like self portraits. Nothing is going to stop dispensational change. God has brought the Jews to the Holy Land with purpose this third and final time. The Kingdom is coming, and nothing can stand in the way. The laughing will soon turn to wrath as these foolish men refuse to submit to the awesome power now being manifested over the Holy Land.

 

 

Ps 37:12-18

12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.
14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.
15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.
16 A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.
17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.
18 The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.

Palestinian Terrorists Murder Ten In Jerusalem Bus Explosion
16:53 Jan 29, '04 / 6 Shevat 5764
 

Ten people were killed, and another 13 are in very critical or critical condition, after a suicide terrorist blew up on a public city bus in a central Jerusalem neighborhood this morning. Medics on the scene said that it was one of the worst sights they had ever seen; the explosives destroyed the bus almost totally, and caused the floor to collapse, trapping and burying victims underneath. The explosion took place only dozens of meters from the Prime Minister's residence.

It took almost eight hours before the first of the ten victims could be identified: Eli Tzafira, 47, of Jerusalem. The bodies were taken to Abu Kabir Forensic Institute in Jaffa.

Israel's Foreign Ministry has posted a video of the terror site taken moments after the explosion. The site includes a cautionary note that the video "contains very graphic footage," but Foreign Ministry spokesman Yoni Peled said, "We wanted to bring the difficult feelings and sights that Israelis are undergoing to the attention of the public." The video is likely to be included in Israel's affidavit at The Hague's counter-terrorism wall deliberations tomorrow.

The attack - the first one that Palestinian terrorists were able to perpetrate in over five months, due to intense intelligence and security work - took place only minutes before Elchanan Tenenbaum was transferred to Israeli hands in Germany as part of the prisoner/hostage deal. Some analysts say that the Palestinians thus wished to offstage Hizbullah in the competition between them regarding which terrorist group could make Israel bleed more. Others say that the Palestinian terrorists are miffed that "only" 400 of their number are being freed in the exchange. It has been repeatedly emphasized, however, that attempted Palestinian terrorist attacks of this nature are almost a daily occurrence.

Fifty people are reported wounded in the explosion, but the number is expected to rise as shock victims report to hospitals on their own. The explosion took place on a #19 bus on its way from Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital to the northern parts of the city, very close to the Moment Cafe where eleven people were killed on March 9, 2002 in another Palestinian terrorist suicide attack

 

 

It seems the animalistic Palestinians are back to doing what reasonless beasts do! Rip, tear, and terrorize the Jewish people. The goal of forcing the Jews to pack up and leave has long ago been abandoned as impractical. The dream of the Jews being their slaves doing all the work while they lay back smoking their Turkish pipes is clearly only pipe dreams. The truth is the Islamic Arab Palestinians lost on every count. All that is left is to terrorize forever. The hate they have against the Jews is really hate against the God who brought the Jews back to the Holy Land. This God of the Bible has proved far more powerful then Allah the god of the Koran. The Islamic Arab Palestinians find themselves second class citizens as long as they remain in the Holy Land. This is a condition the proud Palestinians can't stand. Their response is to lose all reason falling into animalistic depravity. Their aim is to torture forever, and this behavior will never stop. This is Israel's payback for releasing 400 terrorists. Only the wildest of beasts would bite the hand that feeds them. It is mindless hate!

Vicious mindless animals must be killed or caged. There is no other way to deal with them. Prisons around the world are filled with these animals from other cultures. Only the Palestinian culture glorifies such behavior. Only Islam supports such behavior with tongue in cheek. The battle is between the God of the Bible, and the god of the Koran. The Jews are caught in the middle often not understanding what is happening. The Coming Kingdom is coming, but with great price. The Bible says the entire gentile world is going to resist with the same hatred we see in Islam today. The price is going to be Armageddon at the end of the Great Tribulation before the Kingdom can be victorious. Many are going to be willingly ignorant of what is happening. Many will be the victims of animalistic behavior gone crazy. The Bible explains everything with perfect clarity. It is Christ through and through. It is resistance to this great truth that keeps sinful men in willing blindness.

 

 

Isa 8:13-18

13 Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.
14 And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
15 And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.
16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.
17 And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.
18 Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.

ISRAELI RAID TARGETS

BOMBER’S BETHLEHEM HOME

Hamas claims bus attack, but al-Aqsa Brigades implicate Arafat

 

A limited IDF incursion into Bethlehem ended Friday morning after a pre-dawn sweep led to the capture of a dozen terrorist suspects, less than 24 hours after a Palestinian Authority traffic policeman from the town detonated a 7-kilo explosive device concealed in a backpack at the rear of a crowded Jerusalem bus.

 

Ten people were killed and some 50 wounded in the latest suicide bombing to rock the Israeli capital, more than half of whom are still hospitalized, over a dozen of them seriously.

 

The Bethlehem raid only lasted a few hours with some 15 armored vehicles taking part, backing up troops who prepared to demolish the suicide bomber’s house, which had been evacuated by family members in advance, anticipating the reprisal.

 

"The operation was launched after we made clear the Palestinians had not fulfilled their obligations to stop terror, something which was made clear in yesterday's bombing," an army spokeswoman said shortly after IDF forces instructed Palestinian security officers to abandon checkpoints outside Bethlehem and allow troops to move into the city.

 

It also followed a decision by Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz to make a “tactical rather than strategic" response to the attack, resisting pressure from the Shin Bet security services to renew a full closure on the territories and continuing to allow some 30,000 Palestinian workers to enter Israel.

 

Shortly after the attack just before 9am Thursday morning the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades issued a statement claiming bomber Ali Yusuf Jaara as one of their members, and declaring that the blast was intended "to show the Zionist enemy that the separation fence would not bring them security."

 

But graphic pictures of the scene taken by a Reuters cameraman shortly after the blast were quickly posted on the Foreign Ministry website, in the belief that they, better than anything else, would show why Israel needs a security barrier to stop the bombers.

 

"The fence is Israel's response to terror," said Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom. “All those who criticize Israel for building the fence should take a good look at this morning's pictures from Jerusalem," read the Foreign Ministry website.

 

By Friday Hamas had also taken responsibility for the bombing which ripped apart a packed number 19 bus in the upscale neighborhood of Rehavia, apparently confirming the swift denials issued late Thursday by other figures from the PA-linked al-Aqsa Brigades in Ramallah. It is not the first time elements within two competing terrorist factions have simultaneously claimed and denied responsibility for attacks, a trend that security officials believe indicates increasing co-operation between disparate cells bidding to evade ever tightening Israeli security, provided, to a large extent, by the completed sections of the fence.

 

Back in Bethlehem - one of only two cities under full PA security control, Jaara’s father Munir talked of the family pride in their 24-year old son, calling the bombing a "heroic operation."

 

"My son is a hero and we are proud of what he did," Munir told The Jerusalem Post. "The crimes of the Israeli occupation push young Palestinians to carry out such attacks." As he was speaking, scores of Palestinians well-wishers arrived at his home to congratulate him on the "martyrdom" of his son.

 

Speaking from Ireland, Ali Jaara's uncle, Jihad, one of the Brigades leading figures in the Bethlehem area told reporters that he, too, was proud of his nephew’s action in response to Israeli “crimes against the Palestinians." Jihad was deported together with a dozen other Palestinian gunmen after forcibly occupying the Church of the Nativity in a bid to avoid arrest in the spring 2002.

 

According to a report published over Christmas by The Los Angeles Times the Palestinian terror groups have been quietly migrating to Bethlehem since Israeli soldiers pulled out of the town over the summer, openly operating under the watchful protection of the PA police.

 

Speaking of the “mutual respect’ and “excellent relations” with the PA police in Bethlehem al-Aqsa Brigades leader Abu Hussein told The Times that both take their orders from Ramallah.

 

“We're all under the instructions of the president," he said in late December, confirming the direct link that Israel asserts exists between the terrorist group and PA leader Yasser Arafat.

 


 

·       NO COMMENT - UN Security Council diplomats failed to agree on a press statement condemning Thursday's suicide bombing of a bus in Jerusalem, which Israel called "outrageous," according to the AP. Council diplomats said three hours of closed-door negotiations Thursday fell apart when Algeria, the only Arab nation on the council, insisted that any statement must also condemn the deaths of eight Palestinians, among them at least five Islamic Jihad gunmen who opened fire on IDF troops operating in Gaza City on Wednesday. The suicide bomber, a Palestinian Authority traffic policeman from Bethlehem said in a note that he was avenging the Gaza deaths.

 

·       PA BAILOUT - UN Chief Kofi Annan called on Wednesday for urgent international aid to relieve the plight of the Palestinian people, and forestall the collapse of the Palestinian Authority. "We share our concern about the economic, social and humanitarian situation of the Palestinians," Annan said after talks with Irish Foreign Minister Brian Cowen, whose country holds the rotating European Union presidency. "I appealed for additional support for them, because I am afraid that if the situation continues, we will see real despair and perhaps even partial collapse of the Palestinian Authority," Annan told reporters.

 

 

 

I'm glad Israel is taking a hard line in dealing with these wild animals set on torturing the Jewish civilian population. It is clear the international community is impotent. The world needs to understand that the only way to deal with this kind of animalistic behavior is to cage or kill the out of control beast.

I don't know that the gentlemanly relations between the IDF and the local PA authorities is a good thing? I suppose any movement toward reason should be applauded, and on that basis I would not want to be a critic. I can plainly see that the more the God of the Bible forces His will for the future of the Holy Land, the harder the hearts of those who resist become. I'm thankful that God pressed hard on me when a lost sinner to come to Christ. I'm thankful He gave me no relief until I succumbed and surrendered my heart. It was not till then that I was ready to meet the God who the bruised reed He does not break, and the smocking flax He does not quench. He knows how to apply such awesome power with amazing tenderness, but woe to those who will never bend. They are doomed to fail.

The next Biblical dispensation is coming. The Servant of righteousness who has been the light of only the few who resisted apostasy, and stood on the Bible not the religions of men have all seen the light. These righteous gentiles, and righteous born again Jews are about to experience the rapture which ends the Church age. The Holy Land, Jerusalem, and Temple Mount will be the focus of God in the next dispensation. Old Testament Biblical Judaism will be realized as all the statues and ordinances will be centered in Christ, and Christ alone! Leviticus will again find the fullness God always intended as Temple sacrifice will be a continual remembrance of Calvary. New things are coming for both Jew and gentile. Woe to any who refuse to turn to the light.

2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.
4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.
5 Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:
6 I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;
7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.
8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.
KJV

Matt 12:15-21

15 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;
16 And charged them that they should not make him known:
17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
18 Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.
19 He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.
20 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.
21 And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.
KJV
