COURT ORDERS CHANGES TO FENCE ROUTE
Rules that quality of life supercedes security – In a landmark ruling, Israel’s High Court of Justice on Wednesday ordered the re-routing of a 30-kilometer stretch of the security fence northwest of Jerusalem, in order to reduce the humanitarian impact on Palestinians living in the area.
KOSHER KILLING – Bringing back memories of Oslo, the rabbi of the Old City of Jerusalem said Tuesday that anyone who gives away parts of the Land of Israeli to gentiles is open to a "din rodef" - a religious license to kill a fellow Jew. Rabbi Avigdor Neventzal said that although these days it is impossible to issue such a verdict, “it should be known that anyone who wants to give away Israeli land is like a rodef, and certainly land should not be given to idol worshipers.” Finance Minister Benjamin Netanyahu criticized the rabbi's comments. “We are a law-abiding country and if we make difficult choices from a national standpoint, we accept them in a democratic and law-abiding manner.” The late Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was the subject of a similar debate for signing on to the Oslo peace process.
FRENCH SUPPORT – On a regional visit, French Foreign Minister Michel Barnier expressed support Tuesday for a multinational force in the Gaza Strip after an Israeli withdrawal. Barnier met with Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat yesterday despite calls by Israel and the United States for the Palestinian leader to be shunned. Voicing support for the deployment of "an international presence," including European observers, in the Gaza Strip after the planned pullout, Barnier also said France backed Egypt's security plan for Gaza, which includes the dispatch of Egyptian experts to train Palestinian security forces. This idea was recently criticized by human rights organizations that say Egyptian police tactics are often brutal.
CHURCH GUNMEN - Israel plans to tell the European Union that it will not allow the 13 Palestinian terrorists from the Church of the Nativity standoff to return to Palestinian territories. The 13 were escorted from Bethlehem and divided among several Europeans countries as part of a compromise ending the prolonged standoff at the Nativity compound in April/May 2002. According to EU reports, the deportees' subsidized stay in EU countries has been extended twice, and cannot be legally extended a third time. Some of the European countries expressed fear that the deportees would turn to crime or terrorism. Residents of Bethlehem have complained that some of the men, leaders of local terror militias, had imposed a reign of intimidation in the city. Two of them, now in Spain and Ireland, are believed to have raped two Christian girls before killing them under the pretext of collaboration with Israel.
TROOP MOVEMENT – Early Wednesday, Israeli troops encircled the northern Gaza town of Beit Hanoun with tanks and tore up roads to halt the firing of Kassam rockets that have hit nearby Israeli communities in recent days, killing two Israelis. Forces are expected to continue operating in the northern Gaza Strip on-and-off for the next few months. Meanwhile, troops killed a top Hamas commander near Beit Hanoun and shot dead a 14-year-old in southern Gaza who Palestinian medics said was standing on the roof of his home. IDF sources said troops fired at a person watching them from an abandoned building used by gunmen.
KIWI AID - New Zealand criticized Israel's recent destruction of Palestinian homes and donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to a UN organization helping Palestinian refugees on Wednesday. Associate Foreign Affairs Minister Marian Hobbs said, "We have been shocked and appalled by the recent displacement of thousands of civilian refugees following the destruction of their homes in the past few months.” New Zealand contributes NZ$300,000 (US$188,000) annually to UNRWA.
Where do I start today? The liberal Israeli Court again rules in favor of Arab, Palestinian rights as having priority over Jewish life (as long as it is not their lives). These liberal lawmakers of this generation boldly make the law rather then enforce what is already written. Only God's Law as written in the Bible remains unchangeable. It is absolutely pure, and only needs pure Judges to administer it correctly. The Millennial Kingdom will have such judges in the form of the perfected Christian Church saints. We will get intensive training in the Bible after the rapture to prepare us to administer God's Law for 1000 years. Read Mishpat to better understand the future of the "born again: Christian Church. Our future is to be expert in Jewish Law as the Old Testament and New Testaments equally come together without contradiction during the Millennial Kingdom!
"Din Rodef" is an example of corrupted application of the Jewish Biblical Law. There will be no room in the Millennial Kingdom for such Rabbis as Neventzal. There will be no room for corrupted traditions of either Jew or Christian. A perfect society is the intent by God in ushering in the Coming Kingdom. One perfect religion. One perfect government. All ruled over by one perfect Prophet, Priest, and King! It is all coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount!
The French seem to be the loudest voice of European gentile intentions. They would love to send an Islamic contingent of the French Foreign Legion to the Holy Land with credentials to kill Jews. It is all part of the gentile peace plan for the Holy Land! The Europeans so wanted to preserve the lives of the terrorists of Bethlehem as a political statement, but now must face the parents of two raped and murdered little girls. The God of the Bible intended these men be killed or caged for the rest of their lives, but the politically correct, God rejecting, Europeans wanted their rights be preserved.
The foolishness of the withdrawal from the Gaza continues to confront the conservative Sharon who has found the liberal Jews his biggest allies. The whole world can see the intent of the animalistic, Arab, Palestinians, and yet this withdrawal process continues. Self-righteous pride is the only explanation! It is akin to another liberal political leader saying "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" while the stained dress is being waved in the background?
Finally where were all the bleeding hearts when the Jews of this generation were kicked out of the Islamic countries where they had lived over a thousand years in som cases? These crockidial tears for the destruction of Palestinian homes of terrorists who go into Israel and blow themselves up is misplaced. This one sided New Zealand sentiment for the Islamic, Arab, Palestinians does not go un-noticed by the God of the Bible. I only wonder if when the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11 bring down fire, some of it will fall on New Zealand?
Judgment is coming to all of mankind. This generation is the one God chose to have the Jews return to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. It is this generation that the preparations for dispensational change has begun. It is this generation God has chosen to stand as representatives of all previous generations who defied the God of the Bible. Much as Sodom and Gomorrah this generation is about to be the show piece of executed judgment! It may not be any worse, but it most certainly is not any better then those who have gone before. It will only be through the Jews that any gentiles will be blessed in the Kingdom Age. Abraham will finally be the blessing to the gentile nations so long proclaimed by the Bible. A perfect Jewish Kingdom will embrace all gentiles willing to come, and worship their Messiah/King in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount!!

Five Terrorists Killed – Attack Prevented
22:22 Jul 01, '04 / 12 Tammuz 5764
(IsraelNN.com) IDF officials report five terrorists were killed and three arrested earlier tonight when soldiers prevented a terror attack in the Netzarim area.
IDF Creates Security Zone
17:30 Jul 01, '04 / 12 Tammuz 5764
IDF forces are deployed around Beit Hanoun, and Defense Minister Mofaz said yesterday, "We'll stay there as long as necessary - even, if we have to, until the disengagement." He did not say how Sderot would be protected afterwards.
IDF forces are active in and around Beit Hanoun, in the northeast corner of the Gaza Strip, operating to prevent Kassam rocket attacks on Sderot, only two miles to the east. The forces have created a security buffer zone around the city, aiming to prevent Kassams from being fired within a five-mile range of Sderot. "We will remain there for as long as necessary," Defense Minister Sha'ul Mofaz said yesterday, "even, if we have to, until the disengagement." He did not say how Sderot would be protected after the disengagement.
The forces are not concentrated in Beit Hanoun itself, but have cut off all entrances to the city except one, which they are closely monitoring. This, to prevent the introduction of additional Kassam missiles to the city. Areas from where rockets have been fired in the past have been shaved of all their camouflaging shrubbery and growth. Arab farmers are not being permitted to their fields, and the Beit Hanoun industrial zone is closed; to prevent the build-up of humanitarian problems, the army has established a unit to deal with special requests and the delivery of food and merchandise.
It seems the practical thing that works is to kill, or cage the animalistic, Islamic, Arab, Palestinians, and their supporters. This is one tactic that works, and all agree it works! How foolish does the withdrawal plan appear next to those things that do work. It is no surprise that the Palestinians should oppose those things which work, and thwart their plans to torture the Jews. What is a surprise, is those who support the Palestinians. The most foolish are the liberal Jews who still believe they can negotiate with these wild animals. The Palestinians have produced a culture since 1948 that hates Jews just because they are Jewish. The reintroduction of the State of Israel to the Holy Land was the foundation for the present Palestinian culture that from cradle to grave teaches hate. Every aspect of this culture from parenting, to education, through government, on every Palestinian news outlet, and most intimidating the very religion they practice all teach hate the Jews unto death! The Nazi culture is a similar example, and only the destruction of Germany brought it to an end. Now, the Palestinians have had over 50 years to raise a generation that has only known hate. Negotiation should never be uttered to such depraved a culture. Fence them in, and exterminate everyone that breaks out to kill. The Jews of this generation have a tiger by the tail. Only God has the answer to such a dilemma. It must start with the Jews first. Circumcised hearts will change the Jews, and God will assure their survival in the lion's den! It happened before, and it can happen today. It is not turning the other cheek, but trusting God that He will not allow the wild animals to rule over His Holy Land.
The practical answers for today is clearly to cage, and hunt down the worst of them. I know how cold hearted that sounds, but it is the truth! It is far more practical then the bleeding hearts who would just acquiesce to the terrorists, and hope their hate will change to love without circumcised hearts or being regenerated through a born again salvation.
The coming judgment that is part of dispensational change has a wonderful aspect coming out of the carnage. Hearts will turn to God. It may only be a few, but they are a precious few. They must step out of their culture. They must separate from their generation. They must in many instances stand alone. They must recognize that Christ is the only answer, and He is very different from the crowd. His righteousness is greater then that of any religion. He is far beyond the religions of man. He stands alone in holiness, and there are none who can compare. What He says is what we must do. He opposed the religious leaders of His day, and will as surly oppose the religious leaders of today. He is about to reject the religions of this generation, and replace them with the truth! Only He can bring the Old and New Testaments together into one single truth that will rule for 1000 years. It is not going to be a Catholic Kingdom, or a Protestant Kingdom. It will not be a Baptist Kingdom, or an Evangelical Kingdom. It is going to be Christ's Kingdom, and will operate under the perfect Biblical Law of both Old and New Testaments. It will be something that men are yet to understand. One perfect religion intertwined with one perfect government all produced by the all powerful one perfect Jewish King! The world has not seen perfection of this sort yet. It all comes with the changing of the hearts of just a remnant of men whom the Bible says will mostly be Jews. It is the Biblical Christ who has the power to do such a miracle, and that is just what dispensational change is about to do. Friend, are you part of the remnant, or part of the crowd?

Giant Youth Rally Not Disrupted By Thwarted
13:58 Jul 02, '04 / 13 Tammuz 5764
While 1,000 youths gathered for a day of solidarity, study and work in Netzarim, IDF forces killed five Palestinian terrorists who were advancing towards the community for an intended attack.
IDF forces killed five Palestinian terrorists last night who were advancing towards the community of Netzarim in Gaza, and took three other terrorists into custody. A very large gathering of some 1,000 youth - 22 busloads from all over the country - was taking place in Netzarim at the time. "The alertness of IDF soldiers," reported the Gush Katif website katif.net, "prevented a heavy tragedy that could have occurred had the terrorists succeeded in infiltrating the community. Thank G-d, the residents and many guests in town were not hurt."
The youths were taking part, for the fourth year in a row, in an annual get-together in Netzarim, completely organized and arranged by the youth of Netzarim. Buses from all over the country brought high school students to take part in a day of doing - painting signs, decorating the community, working in greenhouses, and the like - as well as for groups of study and discussion. MK Effie Eitam (NRP) was delayed for a long while at the Netzarim junction because of the clash with the terrorists, and delivered his inspirational speech by telephone to the 1,000-strong listening audience.
"But, for the wickedness of these nations" The Islamic, Arab, Palestinian, barbarians again bring the wrath of God upon their culture. Remember when this culture is brought down to hell that it was their barbarism that brought such a catastrophe upon the Palestinian people. The world media will accuse the God of the Bible as being the barbarian when this culture is eradicated. The world religious leaders will say this is not the god of love that they have preached for so long. Only the Jews will rejoice at the manifestation of the wrath of God in perfect righteous retribution for the wickedness of this barbaric culture.
God will not end with the Palestinians. He will continue to manifest judgment on all the wicked nations that oppose His future plan for the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. Dispensational change means judgment upon all of mankind! The wrath of God will be manifested against all that is not absolutely holy. The United States will go down with all the Western world of nations. The honor of Fundamental Christianity that was always known for standing on the Bible has been rejected for lukewarm Evangelicalism in this generation. Doctrine is unknown to these neither cold or hot Evangelicals. Doctrine has been sacrificed for unity and popularity. The lies of the Charismatic tricksters is not exposed with fervor for fear of offending. Divine revelation has been trivialized into a meaningless "word of knowledge" falsehood. The wickedness of this generation of do nothing Christian leaders is ready for judgment. On their watch showman like Benny Hinn have hijacked "born again," and turned it from a true Biblical miracle into some magical emotional high where the victims are tricked into thinking they have magical powers themselves. This is not the miracles of the Bible, but the replication magic of the Pharoses. It is the silence of the Evangelicals that is the real wickedness of this generation. Little children by the thousands are converted to the lies of these hucksters in camps and under the auspices of Vacation Bible Schools. They trust in false signs of a false christ rather then the Biblical Christ. They soon become even more wicked then their adult teachers. It must end! The wickedness of the Palestinians has equal deceitfulness among today's Christianity. The wickedness of Laodicea is quickly surpassing that of the wicked Corinthians. Today's Christianity has lost the first love of correct Bible doctrine. Beware, lest you are part of the wickedness of this generation that must be judged! Beware, lest God declare your phony doctrine-less Christianity iniquity!

DISENFRANCHISED AGAIN – The Palestinian Authority plans to deny residents of refugee camps the right to vote in upcoming local elections, according to Palestinian Media Watch. Citing the PA-run daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, the PMW report says that the Supreme National Committee for the Protection of the Right of Return, a special PLO body, announced Tuesday it objected to the participation of camp residents in local elections expected soon in Palestinian areas, saying the move would preserve them as “testimony to the crime that the occupation state made against our nation for 56 years. The committee warned of the dangers of integrating the refugee camps into the urban housing units.” For decades, the PLO has used Palestinian refugees as political pawns, deliberately confining them to UN-run camps rather than allowing their rehabilitation and absorption into mainstream society.
It is not Independence Day for the 56 year old refugees kept in perpetual UN camps throughout the Holy Land. Most of the original refugees have long died off. It is the political advantage their seed offers that keeps them bottled up in squalor by their Arab brothers. They are last class citizens who like the slaves of the old South have no rights. The UN supports them financially as a statement of perpetual blame against the Jews, and the foundation of the Jewish State of Israel. 56 years ago they did not flee before the great Jewish Army because there was no great army. The Jews were predicted by all to be crushed by the overpowering invading Arab Legions. Not even one day was allowed for the Jews to organize an Army. They fielded rag tag units, and even had to draft Jewish refugees right off the boats. These Arab refugees of today did not flee in fear of the Jews. They fled in fear of the Arab Legions that threatened no quarter for anyone in their way as they headed for Jewish population centers. These Arab refugees were told to get out of the way. They were promised the spoil after the Legions swept through the land. It didn't work the way the gentile world expected. The Jews won!
Today, history has been rewritten. The greedy forefathers of these Arab refugees are now to be looked on as victims. The giant IDF Army forced upon the Jewish people by their aggressive neighbors is a product of 56 years of threats, and sneak attacks. Who is so foolish to believe that if it wasn't for the IDF growth another holocaust, this time Islamic, would have taken place making the Nazis look like amateurs.
The God of the Bible has blessed the Jews over the last 56 years, while He has left the Palestinian Arabs to stagnate. These Arabs have no rights in the Holy Land. They have more rights with the secularized Jews of today then they have among their own Arab brothers. When their lives are over they will again have no rights at all. Their hate for the Jews hardened their hearts beyond any ability to repent. They turned themselves into wild conscienceless animals.Their condemnation is fixed by the words of the Bible. God's judgment will not be limited to the animalistic Palestinians. It will extend to all the transgressors! Zion will be where repentance takes place. Jerusalem will be the city of righteousness. Only Jerusalem will remain faithful to the Bible. Only Jerusalem will be blessed when judgment comes to planet earth.
Friend, have you been redeemed with judgment? Have you repented of your sins? Have you come to the Biblical Christ for conversion unto righteousness? The time is short! Beware, lest you be consumed in the destruction of the transgressors! It is all coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount.

European Union Funds Separation Fence
17:32 Jul 04, '04 / 15 Tammuz 5764
While the European Union attacks Israeli
mercilessly for the partition fence it's building to protect Jewish lives, the
EU itself funds and operates a similar fence designed only to protect itself
from illegal immigrants.
Former Mossad agent Gad Shimron reports that while the European
Union attacks Israel mercilessly for the
partition fence it's building to protect Jewish lives, the
EU itself funds and operates a similar
fence designed only to protect itself from illegal immigrants.
The fence is located in a Spanish enclave in northwestern Africa, the coastal city of Ceuta just across the Straits of Gibraltar from Spain. Unknown to most of the world, when Spain handed over most of northern Morocco to the newly independent kingdom in 1956, Spain retained Ceuta and Melilla (about 250 kilometers further east) - thus that the European Union is present in Africa as well. Poverty-stricken Moroccans attempting to cross into Ceuta, from where they will then be able to work anywhere in Europe because of the EU's no-checkpoints policy, are stopped in their tracks by the eight-meter-high, double layer fence. Funding for the fence, some 60 million Euros, came from European Union coffers.
Frequent Spanish patrols, together with policemen who do not hesitate to beat potential infiltrators, render crossing the partition a nearly impossible mission - but the needy say they will continue to try. One of the many who are determined to immigrate to Europe said, "Whoever came all this difficult way and reaches the mountains of northern Morocco, opposite the fence of Ceuta, will not give up. You see the lights of Ceuta? As far as we're concerned, that's the Promised Land. The people here are in despair and will do anything to pass over that fence, enter Spain, and from there continue northward and blend in with the other millions of immigrants in Europe."
The EU continues to oppose Israel's fence, constructed to protect against murderous terrorists and suicide bombs - even as it plans to build another fence of its own around Spain's second enclave in northern Africa, the Moroccan town of Melilla. "It appears," concludes Gad Shimron in Maariv today, "that from a European point of view, the ethical aspects of a separation fence are sometimes a matter of geography."
The myth of an Olive Tree - Topic of the week.
one can tell how many myths and stories have been told the Olive tree in Israel.
This old and mystical tree has a beautiful bark as well as giving the most
valuable fruit known to the people of the region. Both Jews and Arabs know and
respect the value of the olive tree and it is
considered a sin to chop one down.
I tell you this as prologue to the main subject of the topic of the week, and that is the High Court decision to move the protective wall and disallow 30 kilometers of the 40 that were planned in the Jerusalem area.
The High Court did not argue the legality of the wall or the need for the wall. The wall has a 100% success rate in stopping infiltrations and no one in Israel doubts the fact that the wall does its job, however the High Court has cleared a lot of consciences by their decision.
The wall damaged a lot of lives in Israel by its presence and most Israelis preferred to turn a blind eye and pretend it never existed.
When the IDF planned the wall, they apparently planned it with topographic maps only. They did not take into account the new routes that children would have to take to get to school or the amount of time that it would take farmers to reach their fields.
One thing that the IDF did do is they tried their best not to damage any Olive trees. It was these olive trees that eventually beat the wall back to where it will be in its final position. The wall is not to be a barrier for the farmers getting to their fields. Even Prime Minister Sharon said after the decision was made that he was "proud of the decision". He went on to say" People worked for many years on those Olive groves and they deserve respect".
The International Court of Justice in The Hague is to give its decision on the legality of the wall within the next 2 weeks. The high Court in Jerusalem has made a decision that will enable all Jews and Israelis to hold their head up high no matter how slanderous that decision will be. We can show that our legal system is as good as any and that we don't need any outsiders to tell us what is right and what is wrong.
The International symbol of Peace is a dove with an olive branch in its mouth. We have the Olive trees and we have the doves, now all we need to teach them is to put the branches in their mouths and then do what?
Here is just another example of singling out the Jews for unfair, politically correct, treatment. The Islamic world uses the economic power of oil to influence the Europeans to oppose Jewish security in the Holy Land. The Europeans are not noted for placing principal above money. The separation fence is one effort that works in controlling attacks from the animalistic Palestinians. It is unbelievable that the Europeans would oppose the fence which has such positive humanitarian effects? Another deterrent that works well is the knowledge that any suicide bomber will have his family home bulldozed after he attacks Israel. This policy so enraged Saddam Hussein that he would send each suicide family $10,000 to compensate for the loss lest they become a voice against the murder of their children under the influence of the terrorists. Islam puts pressure on Europe, and Europe always acquiesces. Soon, another will come putting pressure on the entire Western World to submit to his anti-Semitism.
This world has never been known as fair, but the Jews have had more then their share of mistreatment just because they are Jewish. The Great Tribulation is predicted to be a 7-year period when anti-Semitism will sink to new lows of human depravity. Two key figures emerge out of that period who represent the God of the Bible. They live and die in Jerusalem. They are murdered half way through the Great Tribulation by the greatest anti-Semitic terrorist that will ever exist. He will be the leader of the entire Western World including all of Europe. His anti-Semitic leanings will be well liked as seems a trait of the Europeans of this generation. The gentile world will party when the antichrist murders these two representatives of Biblical righteousness on planet earth.
It is no wonder that the Two Witnesses of Revelation are called olive trees. The cutting down of these Two Jews of Jerusalem will bring a 3-1/2 year period at the end of the Great Tribulation called Jacob's Trouble. Anti-Semitism will not only be politically correct, but the law of the land. It will be a terrible time for Jews who will be keeping the Old Testament commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ! This will be the Biblical Judaism of the Great Tribulation that will go on into the Millennial Kingdom. The Two Witnesses will lay the foundation for the Biblical Christ after the rapture. They will combine Old and New Testaments into the Judaism God always intended. There will be no need for a Newer Testament to instruct the Millennial citizens. The Two Jewish Olive Trees of Revelation with 144,000 Jews from all the original tribal areas where the Jewish settlers now reside will lay the Biblical foundation for the next dispensation. It will be absolutely kosher, it will have the last Jewish Temple, and it will have the testimony of Jesus Christ in perfect harmony with all the Bible as the coming again Jewish Messiah.

A Major Fast Day -- remembering the day when the Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed, not once but twice
MK Hendel Calls for Avoiding Civil War
18:49 Jul 05, '04 / 16 Tammuz 5764
(IsraelNN.com) MK (National Union) Tzvi Hendel today stated we must avoid Prime Minister Ariel Sharon leading the nation to civil war, stating he must be removed from office.
During a meeting of the National Union opposition party leaders, Hendel expressed his disapproval over recent statements by Shin Bet Director Avi Dichter as well as the unyielding support of the prime minister and his policies exhibited by the mainstream media.
Hendel labeled the media the “watchdogs of democracy,” calling on the press to “return to its rightful place” – the objective reporting of facts.
Yesha Council Maps Out
Plan of Action
17:27 Jul 05, '04 / 16 Tammuz 5764
"Coming out of hibernation." That's how one observer described the plan released today by the Yesha Council to fight the disengagement/withdrawal/expulsion program in the sphere of public Israeli opinion.
Correspondent Haggai Huberman reports that the plan contains several elements, all of which are marked by a substantial increase in the level of activism. Among them are a petition against the disengagement to be signed by no fewer than a million people. To this end, a personal visit to the home of every family in Israel is planned. Huberman explained, "This will of course also involve giving out stickers at intersections, booths in city centers and malls, and the revival of the task forces used in the Likud referendum vote two months ago - and all this in the course of the coming month."
The Yesha leaders feel that there is a wide-spread misconception that the disengagement is already an established fact and that the clock cannot be turned back. The goal, therefore, is to cause a turnabout in public opinion regarding the withdrawal plan. At the very least, it is hoped to make public consciousness aware that implementation of the plan has not yet been approved by the Cabinet and that it's not too late to stop it.
Another idea in the works is the formation of a human chain from Gush Katif to Jerusalem, to take place on Sunday, July 25. It is estimated that some 70,000 - 80,000 people will have to participate. Details of the human chain are already being planned, such as the names of those responsible for each section and the parking lots that will have to be available along the route.
In the political sphere, massive pressure will be placed on the National Religious Party to quit - and bring about the toppling of - the government.
Civil War is not new to the Jews. The greatest civil war of all times is recorded in the Bible when Israel of the North detached from Judah of the South after the death of King Solomon. The Northern Israel was the seat of secularism while the more faithful Judah retained the Temple, and was the spiritual representatives of God during the Divided Kingdom era. At times Judah became as secularized as Israel, but Judah was able to repent while Israel remained aloof. When Judah was no longer able to repent, the Babylonians ended the First Temple era.
A divided Kingdom is appalling to the God of the Bible. There will be no divisions during the Millennial Kingdom. Righteous iron rod rule will forbid any secularization of the coming Kingdom. However, division will reign until the return of the LORD Jesus Christ. The 7-year Great Tribulation is a time when secular Judaism will suffer for separating from the spiritual. The Two Witnesses of Revelation most probably named Beauty and Bands will be allowed to be cut asunder by the antichrist. The 144,000 Jews who joined them at the beginning will flee with many converts from Jerusalem under protection from God. They will remain protected in the wilderness as the antichrist sends out a flood of effort to exterminate them. The secular Jews will remain behind thinking they can compromise with the antichrist. The foolish shepherd also called the idol shepherd will lead the secular Jews using them as fodder for his own ambitions. It will be a terrible time for secular Jews, and many will convert to the Biblical Judaism introduced by Beauty and Bands.
The Last Jewish Temple will have been built, and will have been in kosher operation when the antichrist murders Beauty and Bands. The Idol Shepherd will lead the secular Jews in worship of the antichrist as he sits on the throne designated for the returning Christ. It will be the time of Jacob's Trouble for these secular Jews as they become used by the antichrist, and their own political leaders.
One thing that is certain of this coming era is that God does not allow the brotherhood of secular and spiritual Jews to operate as it did for the first part of the Great Tribulation. Zechariah 11:14 is specific that the brotherhood between Judah and Israel will be broken 3-1/2 years into the Great Tribulation. They will be separated forever because of the one who was sold for 30 pieces of silver that was cast to the potters on the floor of the Second Jewish Temple. It is Christ who will forever separate the secular from the spiritual. There will be no room for carnality in the coming Kingdom. The secularized carnal Jews will have another 3-1/2 years to convert. They will need to have their hearts circumcised. There will be no compromising with God from that day forward. There will be no fence straddling. They will either come to Christ with all their heart, all their soul, and all their might, or they will perish with the Idol Shepherd. The end of the Great Tribulation will be the day that Christ forces the whole would to make the same decision. It is either repent before the holy, absolutely righteous, puritanical Christ of the Bible, or perish!

Tisha B'Av and the 3 Weeks
July 6 - July 27, 2004
A Major Fast Day -- remembering the day when the Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed, not once but twice
The Three Weeks
The "Three Weeks" between the 17th of Tammuz and the Tisha B'Av have historically been days of misfortune and calamity for the Jewish people. During this time, both the First and Second Temples were destroyed, amongst other terrible tragedies.
These days are referred to as the period "within the straits" (bein hametzarim), in accordance with the verse: "all her oppressors have overtaken her within the straits" (Lamentations 1:3).
On Shabbat during the Three Weeks, the Haftorahs are taken from chapters in Isaiah and Jeremiah dealing with the Temple's destruction and the exile of the Jewish people.
During this time, various aspects of mourning are observed by the entire nation. We minimize joy and celebration. And, since the attribute of Divine judgement ("din") is acutely felt, we avoid potentially dangerous or risky endeavors.
ASPECTS OF MOURNING DURING THE THREE WEEKS
1. No weddings are held. (However, engagement ceremonies are permitted.)
2. We do not listen to music.
3. We avoid all public celebrations -- especially those which involve singing, dancing and musical accompaniment.
4. We avoid pleasure trips or other unusually entertaining activities.
5. No haircuts or shaving. (Fingernails may be clipped up until the week in which Tisha B'Av falls.)
6. We do not say the blessing She-hechianu on new food or clothes, except on Shabbat.
This is a time of National mourning for the Jews of Israel. Everything during these next 3 weeks is designed to remind the Jews that they lost both the Land, and the Temple because of their sin not once, but twice! The Jews were blessed above all people on earth by the creator God of the Bible. Twice they became so corrupted by leaving the teaching of the Bible, and compromising with the gentile world that God judged those last generations in His jealousy and wrath.
Today, God has brought the Jews back to the Holy Land a third miraculous time. The plan is to build the Third and Last Jewish Temple. The news media may report on the latest message from the Pope, or the latest religious decree by some prominent Islamic cleric. They may report on some word from god by one of the Charismatic showmen so prominent on TV, or the recent resolutions by the Southern Baptist Convention. I want to tell you that all those things are meaningless to the God of the Bible. All that counts in today's religious news from a Biblical perspective is what is happening on the Temple Mount.
The Christian world of today is past repentance, and true revival. All it can do is imitate those great spiritual movements of the past. A mutual admiration society operates in main stream Christianity patting each other on the back in phony congratulations for the latest so-called revival. There is no evidence that this generation has become more holy then the one before. The truth being told, it is worse for all the supposed growth of Christianity, and successful multi-media revivals. This generation is only fit to be spewed from the mouth of God.
The God of the Bible is turning back to the apple of His eye! He is remembering His promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It is their seed which is now engaged in the greatest spiritual battle of this generation. The battle of the Judo-Christian Bible against the Islamic Koran. The battle of Jehovah against Allah. The battle of Christ the Messiah against Mohamed the phony prophet of Islam. It is the Temple Mount where this battle will reach the climax. The building of the Last Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount will signal the end of Islamic influence forever on planet earth. The God of the Bible will have nothing to do with compromise! There is no room in His coming Kingdom for the heathen Moslems. There is no room in His coming Kingdom for the phony Christians either. In fact, there is no room is His coming Kingdom for phony Judaism. There is only room for the Bible, and the uncompromising, puritanical, righteousness it teaches. A perfect Judaism is coming with the circumcision of Jewish hearts. Yes, some gentiles will respond also, but it will be almost entirely a Jewish movement back to the Bible. It is all revealed in the Bible as taking place in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. The revival that the gentiles of today reject is coming to the Jews of Israel. A revival based on them coming to Christ uncompromisingly. Coming with all their hearts, all their souls, and all their might. They must separate from this generation with a renewed Biblical foundation. A new dispensation is in the offering. It is up to the Jews of this generation to grasp it. They must build the Last Jewish Temple when God sends His Jewish prophets with the decree. Somewhere in Jerusalem I think those prophets await their calling. The time is short. The time is right! Come LORD Jesus!

No Injuries or Damage from Earthquake
18:06 Jul 07, '04 / 18 Tammuz 5764
(IsraelNN.com) Residents of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Tiberias, Holon, Petah Tikvah and many other areas around the country reported experiencing the earthquake that occurred a short time ago. Officials are now reporting the quake measured 5.0 on the Richter scale.
MDA and Israel Police report that all stations around the country report no injuries or damage.
The beginning of sorrows is what this generation need contemplate. Nation against nation, earthquakes are already everyday news events. What is unique to this generation is that for the first time since these words were uttered by the LORD Jesus Christ a viable Jewish Nation now exists!
The whole world is expected to experience sorrow because of the State of Israel. God is forcing dispensational change on this generation, and they don't like it. It is the sinful resistance to God's plan as revealed in the Bible that brings sorrow to this present generation. This sorrow is predicted to effect every nation on the planet. All will be forced to either submit, or perish. Jesus Christ is coming again! Biblical righteousness will force sin into the open. All the nations whether Moslem, Christian, Hindu, Democratic, or whatever will be exposed as corrupted with sin. They can't get along with each other much less will they get along with the absolutely pure God of the Bible. The time for change has arrived with the Jews coming back to the Holy Land.
Earthquakes are the way God is waking up this lukewarm generation. A reminder has been given again that a final earthquake is coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. The Bible is very clear that the LORD God is coming again. He is coming with all His redeemed Saints. Not the Saints of the Apostate Catholic Church, but the Saints who have been washed absolutly clean from all sin through the blood of the Lamb! Robes of righteousness identify these Saints as the puritanical terror this world of sin has long dreaded. An irresistible force that will bring great sorrow to every rebel desiring the freedom to sin. A King is coming who will convince the Jews to include the Trinity into their Biblical theology. In that day there will be only one LORD. and His name will be one! It will be The LORD Jesus Christ - Messiah/King!
4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

Secular Jewish Politician Record
Rabin ran for election saying he would never negotiate with the PLO, and he did.
Netanyahu ran for election saying he would never give back the Golan, and he came close to doing so.
Barak ran for election saying he would never divide Jerusalem, and he offered to do so.
Sharon ran for election saying he would never do what his opponent was suggesting -- give back Gaza -- and he is now doing so.
NABLUS NEXUS - Israeli troops on Wednesday shot and killed an armed member of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades in the Balata refugee camp on the outskirts of Nablus, according to Ha’aretz. Palestinian officials identified the man as Haitham Mahameid, an activist in the PA-linked terror group. The army said a patrol had spotted an armed man and opened fire. The IDF has recently stepped up its activities in Nablus, which the army maintains has become the "wellspring of terror." Israel has captured some 60 suicide bombers and 13 bomb belts originating from the city this year.
MOTHER’S MOURNING - Ruthie Zahavi, who has been unconscious since suffering serious injuries in last week’s Hamas rocket attack on the Israeli Negev town of Sderot, came round on Monday only to find that her three-year-old son was dead. Young Afik Zahavi, an only child, and elderly local resident, Mordechai Yosefov, were both killed in the strike. Zahavi has undergone extensive surgery since the attack, including the amputation of her right leg. According to The Jerusalem Post, her first words on opening her eyes on Monday were: "Where is Afik?"
Where is Afik! What a heart rendering exclamation coming from this mom recovering from a coma. She calls for her only begotten to find he is dead. The Islamic, Arab, Palestinians partied at the news of a dead Jew at the hands of their terrorists, and the only successful technology coming out of their animalistic culture. They are not interested in improving the welfare of their children, but rather their only interest is to train their children to kill Jews. The conscience is the first that must go in such a training program. They must teach lies that the Jews are on the same level as monkeys. The slaughter of such monkeys need never be measured on any scale of morality. Even the murder of little Afik is not an event to cause a Palestinian to pause, but rather is a call to party in the streets so the murder has even greater impact on that monkey society now controlling the Holy Land.
The Palestinians do not hid their hate for the Jews. They know exactly what they are doing. They have named the present war the Al Aqsa war. Al Aqsa is the silver domed mosque on the Temple Mount. The Palestinians know this is a religious war. They know it is centered around the Temple Mount. They are bold to proclaim to all the world that their religion in this generation is focused on the extermination of the Jews living in the Holy Land. They will never, never, never allow a Jewish Temple to be built on the Mount where the Al Aqsa now stands.
The Jews are not so bold in their resolve. They talk about how the Bible says they should build a Temple, but it is quiet talk never to be made a public mandate. It is the Bible that makes this issue a public proclamation. The secular Jews reject the Bible for this reason. They want a secularized State that answers to no Deity. or the writings of the God of their fathers. It is these Jews who have seared their conscience. There appears to be no problem with out and out lying to gain political advantage. The words of Jewish politicians have become worthless in this generation. Only dispensational change can correct this terrible tendency. Only circumcised hearts can bring back honesty to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount.
Friend, the Jews must break from the liars of this generation, and so must you break from the liars of this main stream Christian generation. God is about to spew this corrupted generation from His mouth. Worldliness has so intertwined main stream Christianity that the conscience of this generation has been seared. The lies of the Denominations, the lies of the Charismatics, the lies of the Evangelicals, and the lies of the Baptists go unchallenged in this generation. A phony unity has obscured the saved from the unsaved. The redeemed have been compromised, and the lost have no light to follow. "Let them return unto thee, but return not thou unto them" has become a worthless statement because there are no standards to return to. The liars of religion have made it so. They have made God appear to the world as a liar! They would have you believe Denominational, Charismatic, Evangelical, Baptist, as long as they are Christians, are all redeemed. Only the Christ of the Bible has the power to redeem, and this generation has produced false christs to call the crowds here and there. Beware of the christ you represent to the lost. Be certain you are not taking the lost out of the frying pan only to toss them into the fire. The God of the Bible will not tolerate such pain forever. The victim of a false christ soon turns into a seared conscience perpetrator. These are terrible people whom God classifies as wicked! They are the liars of this present generation! They will all be left behind at the rapture!

Democrats raise 7.5 million dollars; Whoopi
NEW YORK (AFP) - The Democratic presidential ticket netted a cool 7.5 million dollars at a star-studded concert here but had to squirm through a wickedly irreverent monologue from comic Whoopi Goldberg to do it. ...
Goldberg, a devout Democrat, did not spare Bush in her monologue: "Anybody who could wave to (blind singer) Stevie Wonder isn't fully there," she said to howls from the audience.
But she also produced a few embarrassed grimaces with an unsubtle anatomical double-entendre enjoining voters to "keep Bush where it belongs and not in the White House."
The performance, which overshadowed appearances by stars ranging from hip-hop idol Wyclef Jean to actor Paul Newman, highlighted the awkward mix of strait-laced politicians and the volatile artists they routinely court.
The 54-year-old Goldberg was unapologetic to the crowd of some 6,200 people who paid up to 25,000 dollars a ticket for the gala.
"This is what I try to explain to people," she said. "Why are you asking me to come if you don't want me to be me?" ...
Other stars were more orthodox in their Bush-bashing.
Newman took off on his fiscal policies, saying, "I think that tax cuts for worried, wealthy thugs like me are borderline criminal," and the notion they produce trickle-down benefits for the poor is "rubbish."
