Progress Seen on Cyprus Reunification

By ALEX EFTY
ASSOCIATED PRESS

 

NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) -

Greek and Turkish Cypriot leaders promised to decide by March 10 whether to hold public referenda on a United Nations plan to reunify their divided island, U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan said Friday.

Annan, on a three-day visit to Cyprus, proposed the idea of referenda on both sides of the island after it became clear the leadership of neither side would accept his plan without further changes.

Annan's plan envisages Cyprus as a single country with Greek and Turkish Cypriot "constituent states" linked through a weak central government.

As he left Cyprus on Friday, Annan said the two sides should carefully consider his proposal. "We are reaching the end of the road, and I am not sure if such an opportunity will ever come again," Annan told reporters at Larnaca airport.

 

 

Here is another "road map" to peace. The plan here is to make the two belligerents one? I fully expect Cyprus to be the next hot spot possibly eclipsing the war with Iraq? The reason is simple. The vision of King Nebuchadnezzar of old Babylon as interpreted by Daniel the Bible prophet is all about the era of gentile rule. It was a vision related to the destruction of the First Jewish Temple. In that day Babylon was used by God as the chastening instrument correcting the Jews for their compromised religious practices with the heathen gods of their pagan neighbors. The plan for a Jewish Kingdom was put on hold. A second offer for a Jewish Kingdom was heralded by John the Baptist ("the Kingdom of heaven is at hand") during the days of the Second Temple. That offer was rejected with the crucifixion of the King who was to rule, and so the second offer was put on hold. Today, the final offer is being prepared for presentation connected with the building of a Third Jewish Temple. This offer will not be optional. Rejection this time will end in Armageddon!

The gentile nations of Daniel's interpretation are becoming prominent in the news once again. Babylon the head of gold is Iraq which is headlines today. Persia of silver breast and arms is modern Iran. The belly and thighs of brass has been relatively quiet. This is Greece of Alexander the Great fame.  This is why I expect something to happen over Cyprus. I know most if not all of Turkey will not be aligned with NATO when Ezekiel 38 & 39 takes place. Togarmah is an active member of the Islamic Northern prong invasion force. Conflict with the belly of brass could push Turkey into the arms of radical Islam?

The legs of iron, and feet of clay mixed with iron is Rome. It was Pilate who washed his hands of Christ, and gentile Rome continues today in Western World culture as the iron mixed with clay that dominates the world. It is this gentile world of gentile kingdoms that the stone (the Lord Jesus Christ) breaks into pieces. It is the Jewish Kingdom going back to the First Jewish Temple that becomes the great mountain that fills the whole earth.

The dispensation of gentile rule is ending, and the Jewish Kingdom is upon us!

 

 

Kingdoms of the Gentiles

Daniel 2:31-35

31 Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.
32 This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,
33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.
34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.
35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

Local Police Chief: Open Temple Mount After War

Jerusalem Police Chief Mickey Levy says that the Temple Mount should be opened to Jewish worshipers and visitors after the upcoming war with Iraq. He said that the weakening of Fatah and of Yasser Arafat over the past year makes it possible to re-open the holy site to Jews - contingent upon "a diplomatic and police effort." Levy announced that the police closed yesterday PA offices that were operating on the Mount.

The Temple Mount, Jews' most sacred location in the world, has been closed to them since the onset of the Oslo War in September 2000.

 

 

I'm sure most politicians are looking for a return to the old status of an "open to all" Temple Mount with the Moslem Waqf administering, but with Jewish sovereignty understood. It didn't work then, and it won't work today. Islam is intent on building a Grand Mosque in the caverns under the Temple Mount. It will represent the Garden of Eden where Allah not Yahweh talked to Adam and Eve. Islam has arbitrarily rewritten history. All Islamic children are taught a Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount is a myth. They teach that all Jewish references to a Temple in the Bible are lies while teaching that this unsubstantiated wild interpretation of the Koran is truth.

The Moslem Waqf will never administer a Temple Mount where the majority of visiting tourists are infidels who will only laugh at their idiotic tails of revised, and unsubstantiated Islamic history. They as well lead tours through the White House telling the tourists that no American president ever lived there, but Mohamed did touch the dome riding his magic flying horse on his way to a sex perverted Islamic paradise! It wouldn't wash here, and it won't wash on the Temple Mount.

The old status quo is of the past. The future for the Temple Mount is angry confrontation. The climax of all the confrontation will be when God mandates that the Third Jewish Temple be built on the Temple Mount in spite of all Islamic resistance. Sadly, secular Jewish resistance may be even greater. The world will certainly never stand still when a new spiritually awakened movement from within Judaism calls for the immediate construction of the Third Jewish Temple! The Temple Mount is the most important spot on planet earth! The Bible stands or falls with what will happen in the next few years to the Temple Mount. The entire plan of God as revealed in the Bible is tied to what will happen on the Temple Mount. The whole purpose of this miraculous third return of the Jews to the Holy Land is thoroughly engrained into the Temple Mount!

 

 

The Third Jewish Temple

Zechariah 1:14-21

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

Isaiah 42:2

2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
KJV
 

 

ZOA: Bush Promised To End Terrorist States

In response to U.S. President George Bush's latest call on Wednesday night for a Palestinian state - he said it must "abandon forever the use of terror" - the ZOA says that such a concept is unrealizable. The Zionist Organization of America says that the ongoing terrorist war waged by the PA Arabs against Israel, as well as "their culture of anti-Jewish hatred and violence," indicate that a PA state will not be "peaceful and democratic," but rather a terrorist entity. "President Bush promised to end terrorist states, not create new ones," ZOA President Morton Klein said.

The ZOA has long been tracking how the PA has "consistently violated the conditions that President Bush spelled out last year: they have not disarmed, dismantled, or outlawed terrorist groups; they have not arrested or extradited terrorists; they have not halted their anti-Jewish, anti-Israel, and anti-America incitement; they have not replaced their terrorist leadership; they have not embraced democracy and human rights."

For instance, the PA's official television station - "Voice of Palestine," based in Ramallah - broadcast a 31-minute live sermon from the Sheikh Ijlin Mosque in Gaza this past Friday, in which Sheikh Ibrahim al-Mudayris said: "The United States is the primary enemy of the people of Palestine and the Arab and Islamic nation." He urged Arabs to engage in "jihad against Allah's enemies." The same day, the PA's official radio station broadcast a 25-minute live sermon from Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, during which PA-appointed Mufti Sheikh Ikrimah Sabri praised the recent worldwide demonstrations against war in Iraq, saying that the demonstrations "will weaken the U.S. position."

ZOA President Klein noted with consternation that Bush is supporting "a 'road map' that will create a Palestinian Arab state in the very near future, when the Palestinian Arabs have ruthlessly violated all the conditions he himself said had to be met before he would support the creation of such a state... President Bush promised to end terrorist states, not create new ones.

 

 

"What would Jesus do" has become a popular phrase lately coming mostly from ignorant or belligerent people. I can state categorically that Jesus would not form a heathen state in the midst of Israel because of His future plan for the coming Jewish Kingdom. I can also say categorically that Jesus would be flooding the Middle East with Christian missionaries in this present dispensation. Christian mission organizations should be working overtime creating new ministries if the doors of freedom and democracy are really open in the heart of Islam. The "road map" to Islamic democracy is silent on the issue of sending missionaries into the heart of Islam! A lukewarm Church is bringing no pressure on the secular politicians to do what Jesus would do! It is another indictment against a Church drifting quickly into apostasy. Missionaries would turn the Islamic world upside-down as they are intended to do. As Jesus would do. This is not allowable for the present political road map to work!

I have little hope for any plan coming out of Washington that leaves Jesus out! I have no problem with a war against Saddam even considering "what would Jesus do," but I have a great problem with the peace plan after the war! I'm convinced Christians should be praying with much more vigor about the coming peace over the coming war.

I watch the real fundamental missionaries who have always gone into harms way no matter what government policies might be. I do not care about the media missionaries who minister from behind a safe microphone. This is because I know where Jesus would go!

 

 

The Power is in the Heart

Isaiah 42:1-9
42:1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
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.

During his presidential campaign, George W. Bush said he'd been `called' to seek higher office and talked openly about his faith

Bush and God

A higher calling: It is his defining journey—from reveler to revelation. A biography of his faith, and how he wields it as he leads a nation on the brink of war

By Howard Fineman
NEWSWEEK

March 10 issue —  George W. Bush rises ahead of the dawn most days, when the loudest sound outside the White House is the dull, distant roar of F-16s patrolling the skies. Even before he brings his wife, Laura, a morning cup of coffee, he goes off to a quiet place to read alone.

HIS TEXT ISN’T news summaries or the overnight intelligence dispatches. Those are for later, downstairs, in the Oval Office. It’s not recreational reading (recently, a biography of Sandy Koufax). Instead, he’s told friends, it’s a book of evangelical mini-sermons, “My Utmost for His Highest.” The author is Oswald Chambers, and, under the circumstances, the historical echoes are loud. A Scotsman and itinerant Baptist preacher, Chambers died in November 1917 as he was bringing the Gospel to Australian and New Zealand soldiers massed in Egypt. By Christmas they had helped to wrest Palestine from the Turks, and captured Jerusalem for the British Empire at the end of World War I.
       Now there is talk of a new war in the Near East, this time in a land once called Babylon. One morning last month, as the United Nations argued and Washingtonians raced to hardware stores for duct tape amid a new Orange alert, the daily homily in “My Utmost” was about Isaiah’s reminder that God is the author of all life and history. “Lift up your eyes on high,” the prophet of the Old Testament said, “and behold who hath created these things.” Chambers’s explication: “When you are up against difficulties, you have no power, you can only endure in darkness” unless you “go right out of yourself, and deliberately turn your imagination to God.”

Later that day, the president did so. At Opryland in Nashville—the old “Buckle of the Bible Belt”—Bush told religious broadcasters that “the terrorists hate the fact that ... we can worship Almighty God the way we see fit,” and that the United States was called to bring God’s gift of liberty to “every human being in the world.” In his view, the chances of success were better than good. (After all, at the National Prayer Breakfast a few days before, he’d declared that “behind all of life and all history there is a dedication and purpose, set by the hand of a just and faithful God.” If that’s so, America couldn’t fail.)
        After his speech in Nashville, Bush met privately with pastoral social workers and bore witness to his own faith in Jesus Christ. “I would not be president today,” he said, “if I hadn’t stopped drinking 17 years ago. And I could only do that with the grace of God.” The prospect of war with Iraq was “weighing heavy” on him, he admitted. He knew that many people—including some at the table—saw the conflict as pre-emptive and unjust. (“I couldn’t imagine Jesus delivering a message of war to a cheering crowd, as I just heard the president do,” one participant, Charles Strobel, said later.) But, the president said, America had to see that it is “encountering evil” in the form of Saddam Hussein. The country had no choice but to confront it, by war if necessary. “If anyone can be at peace,” Bush said, “I am at peace about this.”

 

 

I've been around Christianity long enough to become very skeptical. I remember the Southern Baptist President Bill Clinton telling the media that he studied the Bible, and concluded what he did to that young secretary was not adultery. I remember another Southern Baptist President Jimmy Carter who substituted the Eastern philosophy of teaching the poor how to fish as the religious awakening that led to his false claim of being "born again." I recognize that there are a lot of phony Christians who use the Lord Jesus Christ for their own benefit. I know the Lord allows the tares to grow among the wheat. I watch the false shepherds daily leading the gullible away from Christ through mysticism, causes, ministries, and cultic personalities, yet using the name of Christ as freely as ben Laden evokes the phrase "may Allah be praised."

I also like President Bush have peace about the impending war with Iraq. However, I am adamantly opposed to the road map to peace being proposed when it comes to Israel. End time events revealed in the Bible seem to be coming together. A literal revived Babylon as revealed in Revelation would become possible after the fall of Saddam. A material oriented new age city ripe for the antichrist is what I can now see. The Islamic invasion of Ezekiel 38 & 39 seems upon us opening the door for the building of the Third Jewish Holy Temple. The rapture of the true Church leaving behind the great Apostate Church of Revelation, and the Great Tribulation can now be seen as coming to fruition for this our generation.

This White House is noted for being more Bible oriented then any other. Bible studies are common place, and encouraged for all the staffs. It is the Bible not religion that is promoted. Would it not be possible to see this White House raptured leaving the continuation of the false peace for the Holy Land to the antichrist, and the tares on their way to the burning of eternal condemnation in hell?

 

 

Babylon City of Merchandise

Revelation 18:10-18

10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
16 And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!

On Joseph´s tomb and the Temple Mount

The government has still said and done nothing about the desecration of Joseph's Tomb in Shechem - and the army is not happy about it. Senior IDF officials say that the government's apathy is costing Israel a price in both the religious and security spheres. Lt.-Col. Rabbi Avi Ronsky told Arutz-7 that he has first-hand knowledge of the contacts between the army and the government in this area, and "the decision to do something about it is solely in the hands of the Prime Minister." Lt.-Col. Ronsky says that the PA interprets Israel's inaction at Joseph's Tomb as a weakness of the
Israeli military. "Many officers feel that the damage must be repaired, and that we must ensure permanent Israeli presence at the site - if not of civilians, then at least of IDF forces. There should be organized buses going there a few times a week, which will not only discourage individuals from making dangerous night-time forays to the site, but will also give the IDF reason to have a permanent presence there."

IDF officers yesterday showed Defense Minister Sha'ul Mofaz photos of the damage at Joseph's Tomb, which occurred between one and three weeks ago. The Cabinet discussed the matter last week, but took no decisions.

On the other hand, the Simon Weisenthal Center has submitted an official protest to the United Nations World Heritage Committee regarding the PA Arabs' desecration of Joseph's Tomb. Shimon Samuels, head of the Center's Paris branch, said that in his recent visit to the site, he saw "much destruction, garbage, and pieces of wrecked cars."

Regarding an even holier site, the Yesha Rabbis Council calls upon the government to adopt the recommendation of Jerusalem Police Chief Mickey Levy, and allow Jews to visit the Temple Mount. Levy said on Friday that the most sacred site in Judaism, which has been closed to Jews since the beginning of the Oslo War in Sept. 2000, should be re-opened following the war in Iraq.

 

 

The Temple Mount is now before the United Nations connected with Joseph's Tomb as an issue to be resolved. It matters not what secular Israel may want. It matters even less what Islam may want. It matters least of all what the world governing bodies (judges of the earth) may want. The only relevant factor about the Temple Mount is what God is going to do!

The Mount has become a stumbling block to all who are forced to deal with it. The conflict only grows as a puritanical God begins forcing His will on a reluctant planet earth. The Temple Mount is destine to drag the whole world into deadly conflict with the God of the Bible. It is from the Temple Mount that God has declared His only begotten Son will rule with a rod of iron. Resistance to His rule will not be allowed. The price for His right to rule is just too great. The whole world is soon to be forced to chose between submission to the Son, or the freedom to continue in sin. All the proud and haughty  rebels will perish due to the choice they make about the Son!

 

 

Kiss The Son

Psalms 2
2:1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

PA MUFTI RILED BY ISRAELI PLANS TO RE-OPEN TEMPLE MOUNT



The Palestinian Authority appointed Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Ikrema Sabri, has reacted angrily to an Israeli official's announcement that the Temple Mount will be re-opened to non-Muslims following a war in Iraq.

Last week, Jerusalem police chief Cmdr. Mickey Levy recommended finally lifting a ban on visits to the Temple Mount by Jews and Christians, first imposed following the launch of the violent Palestinian intifada in September 2000.

But Sabri, head of the Jerusalem Wakf (Muslim religious trust), condemned the move, insisting, "Israel has stepped up its campaign against Jerusalem and the Aksa mosque. They want to turn Jerusalem into a Jewish city."

The Council of Muslim Scholars in Palestine also issued a statement warning against Jewish visits to the Mount, the holiest site in Judaism. "Any attempt by the extremist Jews to harm or enter the compound would be met with resistance and would result in instability," the council threatened.

The 29-month-old intifada, which has left more than 2,000 Palestinians and 700 Israelis dead, was launched as a violent response to the visit of Likud leader (now Prime Minister) Ariel Sharon to the Temple Mount to inspect firsthand the Wakf's reported "archaeological crimes" there.
 

 

 

The Temple Mount is right in the center of angry violence that threatens to be the next major issue after the war with Iraq. The Islamic violence is connected to the growing Jewish influence over the city of Jerusalem. God has already given the Jews sovereignty after the 1967 war, but political Jews have been far more concerned about world opinion then the omnipotent hand of the God of the Bible.

God is going to make Jerusalem a Jewish city, and all resistors are doomed to perish. The resistance comes not just from the Palestinians, but also from the weak kneed Jewish secular politicians. Another resistor to a Jewish Jerusalem is the Catholic Church which has longed for a church dominated Jerusalem, but whom God never gave the sovereignty. In these last days God's hand has moved upon the Jews of the Holy Land. Soon, the whole world will resist God as He forces His will on a resolutely wicked world. The future for the Temple Mount and Jerusalem is surprisingly not religious, but in a person who is the Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah, and the King of kings and Lord of lords. Biblical Judaism is not religion. but rather an expression of life. A life totally submitted to the Savior as revealed in the Bible.

The core of all this resistance to Jewish sovereignty is really the fundamental resistance to the rule of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Christian Church of today resists His puritanical standards as much as any. A lose, anything goes, church has left it's puritanical heritage for a worldly approach to serving Christ. It is no wonder that God is turning back to the Jews in these last days. It is no wonder that kosher worship is what God intends in His coming Kingdom! The respect for purity and holiness is what God is intent on re-establishing with this soon coming dispensational change.

 

 

Holiness and Purity Returns

Zechariah 14:20-21

20 In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the pots in the LORD's house shall be like the bowl's before the altar.

21 Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.

2 Qassams hit Sderot; IDF rejects claim 8 killed by tank shell

By Amos Harel and Tsahar Rotem, Haaretz Correspondents, Haaretz Service and Agencies

Two Qassam rockets fell on the Negev town of Sderot on Thursday afternoon. No injuries or damage were caused by the rockets, which landed in an open area.

The last Qassam rockets fired at the town were toward the end of February, when one hit a factory, lightly wounding one of the workers.

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has promised Sderot Mayor Eli Moyal to have the Qassam-battered Negev town designated a front-line settlement like northern border communities, making it eligible for tax breaks, zoning and development abatements, and special government grants.

IDF rejects claim eight killed by tank shell in Jabalya
The Israel Defense Forces on Thursday rejected Palestinian claims that eight Palestinians were killed and at least 30 wounded by a tank shell fired at a group of people during military operations in the Jabalya refugee camp in the Gaza Strip.

A total of Palestinians were killed during the IDF offensive in Jabalya that began after midnight Wednesday - hours after a suicide bomber killed 15 people and wounded over 50 on a bus in the port city of Haifa - and continued Thursday.

Palestinian witnesses and medics said the shell hit as people were trying to remove furniture from a woodworks set ablaze during fighting between Palestinian militants and IDF troops who stormed the Jabalya camp. The shell was fired by a tank about 150 meters from the workshop, witnesses said.

But a senior IDF officer involved in the Jabalya operation told Army Radio that the majority of Palestinian casualties resulted from an explosive device that was detonated inside the building, and only a short time later did the tank fire a shell at a man spotted with an RPG in an alleyway and hit him.

"The tank shells that were fired were aimed at a terrorist attempting to fire RPG rockets at IDF forces, and after the terrorist holed himself up in a a structure next to the building," said the officer, whose name was given only as Moshe. ...


The offensive came after the new political-security cabinet convened for the first time Wednesday night to discuss the Haifa suicide bombing.
 


DEATH RETURNS TO ISRAELI STREETS

Bus #37 was winding its way through Haifa on Wednesday, packed with high school and university students chatting about assignments or social plans. Some were on their cell phones, as was 13-year-old Yuval Mendelevitch, who was speaking to his father when the bus blew up and the connection was lost. ...

Distressing news was on its way to other Israeli homes. Abigail Leitel's parents suspected their daughter was on the fated bus and called their pastor, who went to the scene. He was the first to identify the 14-year-old's body.

"We were looking for her at different hospitals by calling for the lists of injured," Shmuel Aweida told ICEJ News. "I couldn't sit at home anymore so I went to (the hospital). I identified her there."

Aweida, an Arab pastor of a mostly Jewish congregation, Beit Eliahu, said Abigail was his favorite in the church.

"She loved Yeshua and wanted to serve him more than anything else," he said.

Her sister and brothers, ranging in age from 10-16, were very close, he said. The Leitels moved to Israel when Abigail, the second oldest of the five, was 7-months-old. Abigail's father is a Baptist clergyman.

Her brother Joshua, told Ma'ariv newspaper that a year ago he and Abigail had a brush with death when they almost drowned on a Mediterranean beach. "But someone was watching over us and saw us safely to shore," he said.

"My sister was a creative girl who loved everyone," Joshua said. "Her first love was for humanity, and after that, nature. She always believed that God loves her and wouldn't let anything happen to her. But in the end the pain and sadness has reached us as well."

Abigail will be buried on Sunday.

 

 

 

The news of the Haifa murders of innocent civilians is not the news item going around the world from the Holy Land, but rather the Palestinian propaganda report that an Israeli tank indiscriminately fired into a crowd of Arabs. The international news media has an agenda. Had Israel parked their tanks on the hills overlooking Gaza, and fired a few indiscriminant rounds there would be a story, but the real victims of these recent events in the Holy Land remain unknown to the world community. 

The news of the murder of a Jewish teenager is the real story coming from the Holy Land. A precious Christian with an Arab pastor who with little fanfare give testimony to the Messiah. Here is the truth of real martyrdom. Islam would teach that her murderer was the martyr who now is in a sexually perverted paradise with his 80 sex kittens as reward. I would not be surprised if the mullah wolves in sheep's clothing teach the gullible fanatics that precious little Abigail would be one of the killers kittens to sexually abuse throughout eternity? This is the great difference between the God of the Bible, and Allah of the Koran.

The saddest news of today is that the world media would give the news from Allah's perspective rather then from the God of the Bible. I can only imagine how the future news will be reported as God continues to force His perfect will on a rebellious world? I can only expect a twisted perspective as the world justifies its refusal to submit to the Lord Jesus Christ!

 

 

Faith of Martyrs

Hebrews 11:32-40

32 And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:
33 Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,
34 Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
35 Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:
36 And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:
37 They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;
38(Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.
39 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:
40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.

DIPLOMACY WINDING DOWN AT UN OVER IRAQ

As the deeply divided UN Security Council prepared to hear a crucial update from its chief weapons inspectors on Friday concerning their nearly four months of searches in Iraq, Britain and the United States indicated a willingness to compromise on a "war" resolution that faces certain veto, even as Washington appeared just as certain about getting rid of Saddam Hussein.

UN weapons inspectors Hans Blix and Mohammed El-Baradei are to brief the Security Council beginning at 10 a.m. today. Foreign ministers will attend the meeting and have an opportunity to speak after the inspectors. The
council meeting will then move into closed-door consultations.

Advanced copies of the Blix report were given to council members on Thursday and press reports indicate it will find Iraq has "cooperated" with weapons inspectors, but has not "complied" with UN resolutions demanding
disarmament. In particular, the 167-page report will fault Iraq for failing to account for large stockpiles of chemical and biological agents and for developing new banned missiles. ...

The Baradei report, on the other hand, will likely find no major evidence on Iraq's nuclear program while asking for several more months to continue inspections.

With France, Russia and China all now insisting they will "not allow" a new Security Council resolution authorizing the use of force to disarm Iraq, the UK and US both indicated a readiness on Thursday to consider amendments or other "constructive suggestions" to their proposed resolution.

The move came as the US was still struggling to muster the nine council votes necessary to pass a resolution absent a permanent member's veto. Reports indicate the amendments could take the form of a short deadline -
from a few days up to a month - for Saddam to disarm or face military force.

At this point, however, neither the Blix and Baradei reports nor the possible amendments are expected to sway enough of the swing states (Guinea, Angola, Cameroon, Mexico, Pakistan and Chile) to go along with the
resolution co-sponsored by the US, UK and Spain in order to force a veto by Paris, Moscow or Beijing.


Signaling his fallback position, US President George W. Bush took to the airwaves in a rare prime time press conference Thursday night to tell the nation he already has made up his mind about disarming Iraq, with or without UN approval.

 

 

 

March 17 is the deadline President Bush has given for war! A great gulf has developed in Europe among NATO and EU countries. It appears the world is changing due to events centered around the Holy Land. We have watched the old anti-Semite nations of Nazi Germany, Vichy France, and Belgium establish old alliances in their "tongue-in-cheek" support for Islamic Terrorism. New allegiances and coalitions are emerging as God forces the issue of the return of the Jews to the Holy Land. All Islamic terrorism has at its core a hate for Jews. That hate known as anti-Semitism is at the core of what is happening at the United Nations today.

The greatest anti-Semite of all time is waiting in the wings to take advantage of these new allegiances for His own evil intent. The European Union is expected to grow to 25 countries by 2004. It will grow even more with possible new Arab democracies coming on board? The power to control the world will rest among all the countries that will eventually make up the Western world coalition. A giant of technological advancement such as the world has never experienced - all propelled by oil. It is this great Western conglomerate including the USA that will turn to the antichrist for direction. It stands to reason that alignments within this great powerhouse will be necessary for self interests to be met. These allegiances will eventually be reduced to ten, and it is then that the antichrist will make his appearance. It will then reduce to seven. These will be the ten horns of Daniel. These will be the ten toes of the gentile image that the Lord Jesus Christ will break in pieces. ("Ten" toes is never mentioned by Daniel, but is assumed. I suspect the reason why is because three are merged into a fourth?) This is what I am speculating as I make comparison with the news of today, and the Bible.

The end of everything will be a new beginning with the establishment of a Jewish Kingdom after the chaff of the gentile collapse is blown away. The Great Tribulation is near. I watch to see what kind of world emerges in the aftermath of the Iraqi war. I watch for a phony peace imposed on Israel by "tongue-in-cheek" anti-Semite gentiles. I feel confident in saying that dispensational change is coming to this our generation.

Daniel 7:7-9

7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.

8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.

9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.

24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

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

27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

28 Hitherto is the end of the matter. As for me Daniel, my cogitations much troubled me, and my countenance changed in me: but I kept the matter in my heart.

Beyond Iraq, U.N. Is Issue

By PATRICK E. TYLER

UNITED NATIONS, March 7 — "It is quite clear that the way in which we resolve this problem will determine not just the future of Iraq," Russia's foreign minister, Igor S. Ivanov, told the Security Council today.

As foreign ministers of the Council's 15 member nations gathered in New York, on the morning after President Bush began preparing the American people for war, they seemed to be fighting for their institution as much as over Iraq.

Joschka Fischer, the German foreign minister, said, "The Security Council — in fact, we all — face an important decision, probably a historic turning point."

History will turn, he implied, on what the Council members do now, whether they hang together as a world body or splinter apart in bitter dissent over American war plans in Iraq.

No one mentioned it publicly, but some members said they were also thinking about North Korea. If the Security Council cannot play the primary authorizing role in Iraq, it might throw the international system off balance in trying to unite in preventing the Korean peninsula from becoming a zone of nuclear threat and competition.

Then comes Iran, where international concerns about a secret nuclear weapons program are rising as Tehran's leaders sharply expand their civilian nuclear industries with heavy Russian assistance and technology.

 

 

The diplomats are acknowledging the historic implications looming as they look beyond the war with Iraq. This is probably the last week before the historic turning point overtakes the world. All expect the war to be relatively quick. It is the aftermath that many now recognize as earth changing. A new Middle East brings with it a new alignment of the Nations.

The Great Tribulation ends in Armageddon where Four kings from each of the four corners of the world come together for this final mother of all battles. A battle that is never fought for God intervenes by judging the gentile nations. Only Israel survives to go into the millennial age. The king of the West is the most powerful of the four, and the Bible calls him the antichrist, the beast. The arrangement of nations that each of these kings will control is what the aftermath of the war with Iraq seems destine to produce.

Islam is being split into two factions. One  will invade Israel only to stir the wrath of God and their own destruction. The other faction will follow the antichrist even agreeing to a peace treaty giving Israel the right to build the Third Jewish Holy Temple on the Temple Mount.

In the midst of the horrors of war the hand of God remains strong. His will as revealed in the Bible is what is happening in the world today. The change from one dispensation to another is the turning point that the diplomats are acknowledging in their ignorance. The news media is as blind as the politicians, but God's plan is not hidden.

This may well be the last week of the old world status as God prepares the way for His coming Kingdom!

 

 

The Kings of the Earth

Daniel 11:38-41

38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.

39 Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.

40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.

41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.
KJV


Revelation 16:12-16

12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.

13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

AL QAEDA'S VIDEOTAPED SCHEME TO MASSACRE SCHOOLKIDS

By AL GUART

March 9, 2003 -- EXCLUSIVE
 

HEAVILY armed al Qaeda thugs practiced storming a school, shooting children and taking hostages in a videotaped training exercise, The Post has learned.

The terror rehearsal took place under the mandate of al Qaeda's operations chief, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Mohammed, who was arrested in Pakistan March 1, is being interrogated by U.S. authorities at a secret location as the United States tries to learn of other attacks he may have been plotting.

PHOTO EXCLUSIVE:
A masked murder gang uses an abandoned school in Afghanistan to simulate an exercise in which terrorists shoot at cut-out targets (above) representing teachers and kids.

The taped training attack was conducted at an abandoned school in Mir Bach Kot, Afghanistan, north of Kabul, a hotbed of al Qaeda activity before coalition forces overthrew the Taliban regime in 2001. The video shows bullet-ridden blackboards and cut-out targets in classrooms, apparently representing students and teachers, said former Green Beret Keith "Jack" Idema.

Idema found the tapes in an abandoned house while he was in Afghanistan in November 2001 as an adviser to anti-Taliban force, the Northern Alliance.

"Knowing al Qaeda trained to take out a presidential motorcade or an office building is scary, but nothing is more frightening than their training to take over a school," said Idema. "In a classroom in a camp near Jalalabad, we found little desks with bullet holes in them and the backs of the chairs each had seven or eight bullet holes in them. They were definitely aiming to hit critical mass."

Idema, whose travels in post-9/11 Afghanistan are part of a new Random House book, "The Hunt for bin Laden," said he gave copies of the tapes to the military and CIA within weeks of their discovery. Last week, government officials told The Post they believed the tapes were authentic.

But FBI spokesman John Iannarelli said no credible evidence of a specific threat to American schools has surfaced to date.

Segments of the videotapes viewed by The Post featured a hostage-taking exercise and three scenarios where masked men, armed with AK-47s, pistols and hand grenades, storm a school-like brick building. In one attack, which takes just eight minutes to execute, two gunmen rappel from the roof onto a window ledge of the building and wait for the go-ahead on a two-way radio.

 

 

May Allah of the Koran be praised is the cry of these animals who target school children. Israel has long faced this kind of specific targeting of their children. School buses are the favorite targets of gunman who are convinced Allah will give them special blessings for killing Jewish children. The more children killed in a single frenzy actually increases the blood lust of these soldiers of Allah. There is no difference between Moloch and Allah when it comes to God's attitude toward the death of children!

The aim is not to win the war for children are the least to be feared as combatants. The aim is clearly to cause maximum pain to Jews who are hated by these animals. This behavior is the behavior of the wild beasts  who show no regard to age or gender when they attack.

I had a Bible Study in the Snowy Mountains of Montana where my host had 80 sheep killed by a grisly bear during a single attack on his coral. Something happens to wild animals when they go into a killing frenzy. The issue isn't food anymore, but a blood lust that is horrific takes control over all other instincts.

Similarly dogs that kill chickens just for the thrill have a single fate in Montana. They are not taken to the pond so they can continue their beastly behavior at another ranch. They are shot dead on the spot. Montana children understand once any domesticated family pet regresses into the wild state that death must come swiftly. Experience has proved there is no rehabilitation for such egg sucking dogs.

International sentiment should demand swift death for all who would go along with the training, support, and actual commitment of animalistic behavior against children. It is such behavior that provokes God into wrathful indignation. It is this behavior that is behind the soon coming "Last Jihad" of Ezekiel 38 & 39. It is because there is ignorance of the God of the Bible that this kind of terrorism is accepted by most of Islam. They know the Koran very well, but have little Bible knowledge! They have no understanding of the God of the Bible!

 

 

 

Islamic Ignorance

Jeremiah 9:21-24

21 For death is come up into our windows, and is entered into our palaces, to cut off the children from without, and the young men from the streets.

22 Speak, Thus saith the LORD, Even the carcases of men shall fall as dung upon the open field, and as the handful after the harvestman, and none shall gather them.

23 Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:

24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.

Teen bomb victim eulogized as bridge between US and Israel

The national flags of Israel and the United States covered the small coffin containing the body of 14-year-old Abigail Litle before she was laid to rest in the Messianic Community Cemetery in Haifa on Sunday afternoon.

The American-born teenager who grew up in Israel was one of the 16 people nine of them schoolchildren or students from five schools in Haifa who were murdered by a suicide bomber who attacked a packed bus in Sderot Moriah on the Carmel last Wednesday.

A short distance away another grave had been prepared for the burial of Anatoly Biryakov, 20, also from Haifa, who died in Rambam Hospital on Saturday, of wounds he suffered in the same terrorist attack. His family decided to donate his organs for transplant.

Litle, from a family of devout Baptists, came to Israel with her parents from America when she was only few months old and lived here together with her three brothers and sister ever since.

In a moving ceremony, attended by hundreds of school friends, teachers, and members of the Baptist, Evangelical, and Messianic Jews' communities, she was laid to rest.

"Today, again, Americans and Israelis mourn and today, again, Americans and Israelis share the sorrow of the loss of our beloved Abigail," said US Ambassador Daniel Kurtzer. "She is a true bridge between our two countries, having been born in the United States and now in eternal rest in the Land of Israel.

"She is a true bridge between our many faiths, so dedicated as she was to family and to God and so dedicated as she was to her friends and to her community."

Kurtzer spoke in English, although the service itself was conducted in Hebrew with verses from the Torah and the New Testament and psalms set to music and sung by a choir accompanied by acoustic guitars.

MK Yuval Steinitz, head of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, who represented the government, echoed similar sentiments, saying that Abigail symbolized the start of a new era of friendship and common fate between the Jewish and Christian faiths.

"Your coffin was draped in two flags, of Israel and the US the flag of the strongest democracy in the world and that of one of the smallest but most vital democracies in the world.

"On your coffin there was a cross, but on the flag there was the Star of David and this symbolizes the hope that you and your family mark for courageous and new friendship between us.

Haifa Mayor Giora Fischer also spoke at the ceremony, which was conducted by the pastor of the Beit Eliyahu Messianic Congregation, Shmuel Aweida, a personal friend of the Litle family and of Abigail.

Abigail's father, Philip, described in a voice breaking with emotion the difficult task of identifying his daughter by a ring she wore and spoke of her hopes and aspirations. He expressed the conviction that the time would come when he would once again meet face-to-face with Abigail, whose name means the light of her father.

 

 

 

There is something wrong with a culture that encourages this kind of terrorism! All societies have wild animals that must be put away. In America our jails are filled with these egg sucking dogs who victimize the vulnerable. The perverted child killers are put to death except where bleeding heart liberals control the Judges. It is this Palestinian society that makes heroes out of their egg sucking dogs. It is Islamic culture that rewards the families of these egg suckers. It is the Koran given authority over the Bible that leads to such ignorance of basic good or evil. It is the Koran that keeps Islam from knowing God.  Abigail, the light of her father,  is a victim of  the Koran, Islam, and the Palestinian society. It is this kind of world that must be changed.

Change is exactly what God is doing in the Holy Land today. A changed heart circumcised through submission to the Lord Jesus Christ is the offer available to all this very day. Abigail made that commitment to Christ giving her father the boldness to tell the crowd he will see the light of his life again face to face. It is because a Savior was sent to Israel who can change the heart of even the chief of sinners.

That Savior is coming again to Israel. The world is being prepared for His return. Soon, the cross and the star of David will merge. Soon, the Old and New Testaments will merge into the fullness of Christ. On that day the whole world will be forced to chose. It will be the same choice that little Jewish Abigail exemplifies today. It is the choice of change from being the enemy of Christ to being His friend.

The elect will soon leave this planet to join with Abigail to be in the arms of our Savior. The elect will leave behind the great Apostate monster which has become phony main stream Christianity. The focus of the God of the Bible will change from Christianity to Israel, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. A new covenant will become the law of the land. Oh what a change that will be!

The New Covenant

Jeremiah 31:31-34

31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:

33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD; for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

Nazareth court delays destruction of
controversial mosque

By Uri Ash, Haaretz Correspondent, and Haaretz Service

Nazareth Regional Court delayed the destruction of the illegally built Shihab al-Din mosque Tuesday afternoon. The court responded to a claim from the Waqf, the Muslim religious trust, that said it already obtained permission for the construction of the mosque from the government, and that it did not need additional permission from the regional planning council.

The court postponed the destruction order issued by Nazareth Magistrate's Court last Thursday. The Magistrate's Court ruled that everything that had been built so far on the mosque site was constructed illegally and violated previous injunctions. The court also instructed the Waqf to demolish within three days all that had already been built.

The Muslims' desire to build a mosque across from the Basilica of the Annunciation has aroused a lot of controversy between Christians and Muslims in Nazareth, such that the mosque has become called "Mosque of Dispute." The conflict has occasionally degenerated into violent confrontations.

In December 2001, the Nazareth magistrate's court ruled that Waqf members must stop building, but construction continued anyway.

The square in Nazareth has become the source of tension between Christian and Muslim leaders and groups because of differing interpretations of its historic and spiritual importance. Muslims believe that Shihab al-Din, a cousin of Arab hero Saladin, is buried in the area of the square. Christians believe the Basilica is where the Angel Gabriel told Mary she would give birth to Jesus.

The previous Sharon government had decided almost exactly a year ago that construction of the mosque should not go ahead. Sharon's cabinet had adopted a recommendation submitted by a special ministerial committee headed by former housing and construction minister Natan Sharansky.

The Sharon government made it clear at the time that its decision overturned policies enacted by previous governments on this issue. In its 2002 decision, the cabinet agreed to propose seven alternative sites for the mosque and restore the structure that holds Shihab al-Din's grave in accordance with Muslim sensibilities and without altering the site's status.

 

 

Keep the status quo. Don't rock the boat. This is what secular Israel wants. The problem is the status has already changed, and the boat has long ago rolled over. The destruction of the illegal construction on the front lawn of the Church of the Nativity will bring with it riot and death. The continued construction with no action taken by Israel will allows Islam to run roughshod over every Christian and Jewish site under their authority with impunity. The next move in Bethlehem would be to build a mosque on the very site of the Church of the Nativity as Moslems long ago built their shrines on the Temple Mount.

The strange irony of this explosive situation is the comradery between the fanatical Moslems of the region, and the apostate Christians who own the Church of the Nativity. The recent standoff between terrorists who fled to the Church as a stronghold when IDF forces shutdown Bethlehem to the terrorists is just such an Irony. The keys to the Church were given to the terrorists by the Apostate Christians. Throughout the standoff the Moslems desecrated the Church almost burning it down, yet the apostate Christians all the way to the Pope at the top continued to support the terrorists over the Jews. It became very clear to me that apostate Christianity hates the Jews as much as the terrorists. Enough so, to turn a blind eye to what these murderers were doing within the Church itself. Imagine the outcry from the Pope had Jewish radicals stormed the Church, and used it as a citadel to shoot Arabs outside? I realized that radical Islam hates all Christians, and Apostate Christianity hates Islam, but both hate the Jews with such fervor that they will unite whenever Jewish sovereignty comes to the front in the Holy Land.

The God of the Bible is forcing Jewish sovereignty over the Holy Land. He is forcing it on Islam, Christianity, and even resistant Jews. The status quo is something of the past as dispensational change moves forward. The conflict will only grow as the whole world unites in hate for the Jew! Poor little town of Bethlehem caught in the middle of all this strife. It is no wonder the Babe born here was destine to turn the whole world upside-down!

 

 

The King is coming Again

Matthew 2:1-13
2:1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
3 When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.
5 And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,
6 And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.
7 Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, inquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.
8 And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.
9 When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.
10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
12 And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.
13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.

IRAQI SOLDIERS SURRENDER … BEFORE THE WAR

Iraqi soldiers misinformed about the actual onset of war crossed the Kuwaiti border and tried to surrender to British forces last week.

The Iraqi troops apparently thought the war had started and surrendered as British paratroopers tested their weapons during a routine exercise. The stunned British troops reassured the Iraqis they were not firing at them and ordered them back to Iraq telling them it was too early to surrender.
 

 

 

I'm sure this is where Christian prayer should be focused. This war with Iraq is just, and necessary. It is God working fear in the hearts of the soldiers that can keep the casualty totals low. Christian prayer should not be aimed at the eradication of the enemy, but rather at opportunity to present the gospel message to those  whose culture forbids they hear. What is needed is Christian missionaries to minister to these disillusioned combatants. What is the value if they survive the war only to die of old age in self imposed darkness?

There will be those who will never listen. Those who victimize their fellows into blind obedience to the vicious dictator Saddam Hussein. These fellows may well have come to the end of their days. The war with Iraq will be to many the war in which they meet their maker. The choice that they made in life will be reckoned for all eternity. The Savior has come. The question will be "what have you done with Christ!" The Bible is sufficient to provide all answers. Those who chose the Koran over the Bible will pay the price. Those who chose Allah and his prophet Mohamed over the God of the Bible and His only begotten Son will pay the price. Only one claimed to be the single savior intended from time immemorial. Only one said He was coming again to Israel, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount! The day of decision is near for many. The survivors will be given another opportunity to come to the light, but of what value if they remain in their self imposed darkness?

Where are the fundamental missionaries that can make the difference? Where is the pressure on the government to open the door of freedom to hear the gospel message in Islamic lands? Where are the fundamental missionaries who should have flooded into Afghanistan? Has the Church bowed to the politicians as to how best bring peace to the Middle East? Is it time for a milk toast Church to step aside?

I pray for that small voice that goes out without fanfare. I pray for that voice we never hear about. A gospel voice that should be there for the survivors of the coming war with Iraq!

 

 

The Beautiful Feet

Romans 10:15-21

15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?

17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.

19 But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you.

20 But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me.

21 But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.

Iraqi 'secret surrender' negotiations under way

From Barbara Starr
CNN Washington Bureau
Thursday, March 13, 2003 Posted: 0041 GMT ( 8:41 AM HKT)

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- U.S. officials told CNN Wednesday that "secret surrender" negotiations have begun with key Iraqi military officials in hopes some military units will not fight U.S. and coalition forces should there be a war.

Communications with these Iraqi military officials are not being handled by the Pentagon, but instead by other "elements" of the U.S. government, the officials said.

One senior official said some elements of the Iraqi military may have already agreed not to fight. This underscores assessments by both the CIA and the Defense Intelligence Agency that the leadership around Saddam Hussein is "brittle." Officials have been making that assessment somewhat public as part of their effort to publicize Saddam's vulnerability.

Officials, however, say specifics cannot be detailed out of concern Saddam could enact retribution.

To the dismay of the U.S. officials involved, the secret effort was first publicly hinted at Tuesday by Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. When asked at a press conference how the Iraqi military could signal support for the U.S. effort, Rumsfeld said, "They are being communicated with privately at the present time. They are being, will be communicated with in a more public way. And they will receive instructions so that they can behave in a way that will be seen and understood as being non-threatening."

One official said Rumsfeld's public acknowledgment about the private communication was not expected, but now the basic facts are being acknowledged

The United States already has a widely publicized public effort to encourage surrender by the Iraqi military that includes dropping hundreds of thousands of leaflets with specific instructions on how to position units so they are not hostile, radio broadcasts with similar messages, and e-mails encouraging commanders to defect.

 

 

How wonderful it would be if the war with Iraq was won with hardly firing a shot. It would be the most miraculous war in all of history. This present regime must go. If that can be accomplished without the shedding of American blood it would be the greatest answer to prayer I could ever have imagined. God is doing great things in the Middle East. The war with Iraq is a necessary part in God's plan for the Holy Land. Babylon of the Book of Revelation must be established as the economic center for most of the world's wealth. Oil will drive the wheels of Western technology as a new world order comes on the heels of the fall of Saddam. Evil must reach new heights of power as wickedness is exposed by the God of the Bible. The King will soon overthrow all when He establishs His Kingdom. This may well be the last week of the old status for the Middle East.

All is not well in the coming aftermath of the war with Iraq. The peace plan of the Bush Administration is wrong. The formation of a Palestinian State may be the political thing to propose, but it is not in harmony with the Bible. The one track boldness that is bringing victory over Old Babylon, needs to change when it comes to the present peace plan after the war. God is preparing the world for the Kingdom of His Son. It will be a spiritually awakened Jewish Kingdom. It will be built upon the destruction of the gentile world that God already knows will follow the antichrist to Armageddon.

The whole world is being driven to decision. The choice will be between Christ, and the antichrist - between Jerusalem and Babylon! The war with Iraq opens the door for the establishment of Babylon the Great. The city by which the antichrist can gain economic control over the planet.

 

 

The Valley of Decision

Joel 3:13-21

13 Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.
14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.
15 The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.
16 The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.
17 So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.
18 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the LORD, and shall water the valley of Shittim.
19 Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land.
20 But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation.
21 For I will cleanse their blood that I have not cleansed: for the LORD dwelleth in Zion.

Ezekiel 44:6-7

6 And thou shalt say to the rebellious, even to the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; O ye house of Israel, let it suffice you of all your abominations,

7 In that ye have brought into my sanctuary strangers, uncircumcised in heart, and uncircumcised in flesh, to be in my sanctuary, to pollute it, even my house, when ye offer my bread, the fat and the blood, and they have broken my covenant because of all your abominations.

Ashoura Day

Shiite Muslim men cut their heads with swords during the annual ritual to mark Ashoura Day in the southern Lebanese town of Nabatiyeh, on Thursday March 13, 2003. Hundreds of Shiites in south Lebanon marked the 7th century killing of their most revered saint Imam Hussein, by slashing their heads with blades on the occasion known as Ashoura. Al Hussein was a grandson of Islam's Prophet Mohammed and is a symbol of martydrom for Shiite Muslims. (AP Photo/Mohammed Zaatari)

 

 

I was initially hesitant to post this shocking photo, but I'm now confident it is the right thing to do. Look closely to understand why the war with Iraq is necessary. Islam would have children world wide substitute Ashoura Day for Easter. Instead of Easter bonnets, it would be demonstrations of blood covered heads. Only the most wild beastlike cultures could produce such a scene (something akin to Roman Catholic self-flagellation). Only by giving the Koran or Church tradition priority over the Bible can these kinds of demonstrations gain public support. Only by making Mohammed more important then the Lord Jesus Christ can the Ashoura Day demonstrations of blood sacrifice be redirected from the Savior to the works of men!

Blood is crucial in the Bible because it is the only answer to sin! Men can't save themselves no matter how hard they try. The bloody demonstrations of Ashoura Day are absolutely worthless. The blood of these fanatics as well as any Christian fanatics has the same value as their worthless dung. It is only the priceless blood Christ shed on Calvary's Cross that has absolute holiness and purity because of who He is! It is His holiness and purity that makes His blood powerful, and able to wash away sin for all eternity. It is His righteousness that must cloth the saints who will spend eternity in the presents of the God of the Bible!

Events happening in the Middle East this very day are aimed by God at the establishment of the Third Jewish Holy Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Israel. This Temple (Ezekiel 40-48) will have an Altar as did all previous Holy Jewish Temples. Blood sacrifice will again be offered, and accepted after almost 2000 years. The world will again experience blood sacrifice acceptable for forgiveness of sin because God will know the circumcised hearts making those sacrifices are joined to Christ their King. It is the God of the Bible who decrees when blood of sacrifice is acceptable. The blood of man is rejected, but the blood of a lamb without blemish will again be recognized as the Old and New Testaments merge in the coming dispensation of the Jewish Kingdom! It will not be the blood of bulls and goats, but the blood of the Lamb of God sitting on the throne in that Holy Temple through whom God will deem as acceptable for sin washing power. It is the blood washed from the Altar that will mingle with the flow coming from under the Altar that will cleanse the world after the Great Tribulation. It is the purity and holiness of the Lord Jesus Christ that gives acceptable blood the sacredness needed for cleansing.

 

 

The Third Jewish Holy Temple

(During the Great Tribulation)

Ezekiel 43:18-24

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.

19 And thou shalt give to the priests the Levites that be of the seed of Zadok, which approach unto me, to minister unto me, saith the Lord GOD, a young bullock for a sin offering.

20 And thou shalt take of the blood thereof, and put it on the four horns of it, and on the four corners of the settle, and upon the border round about: thus shalt thou cleanse and purge it.

21 Thou shalt take the bullock also of the sin offering, and he shall burn it in the appointed place of the house, without the sanctuary.

22 And on the second day thou shalt offer a kid of the goats without blemish for a sin offering; and they shall cleanse the altar, as they did cleanse it with the bullock.

23 When thou hast made an end of cleansing it, thou shalt offer a young bullock without blemish, and a ram out of the flock without blemish.

24 And thou shalt offer them before the LORD, and the priests shall cast salt upon them, and they shall offer them up for a burnt offering unto the LORD.
KJV


(After the Great Tribulation)

Ezekiel 45:19

19 And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering, and put it upon the posts of the house, and upon the four corners of the settle of the altar, and upon the posts of the gate of the inner court.
KJV

Ezekiel 47:1
47:1 Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house stood toward the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar.
KJV

Ezekiel 47:9

9 And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and every thing shall live whither the river cometh.

Jeremiah 13:23

23 Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.
KJV
 

 

PA: New 'roadmap' will not veer from last year's draft

By Nathan Guttman (Washington) and Aluf Benn, Ha'aretz Correspondents and Agencies

The U.S.-backed "road map" to Palestinian statehood that President George W. Bush plans to present will not stray from last year's draft even if parties lobby for changes, senior Palestinian officials said Saturday.

Palestinian Cabinet Minister Saeb Erekat said he spoke to U.S. Mideast envoy David Satterfield on Saturday, who vowed the road map would be the same as last year's draft and that the only thing left to discuss was how it was to be implemented.

"Satterfield confirmed that the American administration will not make any changes in the road map. Discussions will be made in the implementation," Erekat said. "This is significant because it means the United States won't support changes, even if those changes come from Israel."

In phase one, Palestinians would carry out government reforms and crack down on militants, while Israel would withdraw from Palestinian towns. Israel would then recognize a Palestinian state in temporary borders by the end of 2003. Negotiations on full statehood would come in stage three.


The U.S. has set the appointment of a Palestinian prime minister as a condition for unveiling the road map. Erekat said on Saturday that, "The creation of a prime minister position is being carried out in an expeditious manner." He added that the Palestinian parliament will vote on Monday on a bill defining the powers of the prime minister. "If there are no changes it will be sent to the Legislative Council (Palestinian parliament) for final reading on Monday, and if there are no further changes the law will be ratified," Erekat said.

"Upon ratification of the law, President Arafat will confirm the official appointment of prime minister, Abu Mazen, and then he has three weeks to form the new cabinet," he said. The three weeks could be extended by a further two weeks, he added.

 

 

It appears the road to Armageddon is fixed. The road map is scheduled to be officially proposed next week most probably in anticipation of the fall of Saddam. I would remind all that the last time the Palestinian State was going to be officially proposed by Secretary of State Colin Powel, the announcement was canceled because of the events that took place that day. It was 9/11/2001. I recognize the proposed peace plan (road map) for peace in Israel is the real danger, and not the war with Iraq.

God's plan in the Bible is the destruction of the gentile nations, and establishment of the Jewish Kingdom with the returned Lord Jesus Christ as the ruling King. A Palestinian State filled with heathen Moslems is the gentile phony peace plan that can only lead to Armageddon. The Palestinian attitude toward God's chosen people is crystal clear to the entire world. Giving them a State in the midst of the Holy Land over which God has given sovereignty to the Jews (1967) is foolishness beyond comprehension.

I'm sure President Bush is sincere in his efforts to solve the Middle East conflict, but his road map is anti-Bible no matter how sincere he may be! It will not work! It is based on the premise that the leopard can change his spots. Palestinian culture has raised a generation of blood thirsty wild animal hatred against Jews. I believe God will soon judge them for their evil intent. This is not a judgment that America should get involved with. I believe we have the responsibility to remove Saddam from power, but we go too far into God's business when we step into Israel proper. It is no place for gentiles to tread! I'm sure the foolishness of this road map to a phony peace will manifest itself at the first withdrawal of Israeli troops from the proposed Palestinian State. The eventual placement of a gentile army to guard Israel will prove as foolish as the days when Israel trusted to Egypt for their safety.

When Israel will really need the gentiles, they will abandon her! It will be the old story again!

 

 

Do Not Put Your Trust in the Gentiles

14 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be said, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;

15 But, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.
KJV

Jeremiah 2:36-37

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.
KJV


Jeremiah 37:7-9

7 Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Thus shall ye say to the king of Judah, that sent you unto me to inquire of me; Behold, Pharaoh's army, which is come forth to help you, shall return to Egypt into their own land.

8 And the Chaldeans shall come again, and fight against this city, and take it, and burn it with fire.

9 Thus saith the LORD; Deceive not yourselves, saying, The Chaldeans shall surely depart from us: for they shall not depart.

Word is made flesh as God reveals himself... as a fish

Edward Helmore New York
Sunday March 16, 2003
The Observer


An obscure Jewish sect in New York has been gripped in awe by what it believes to be a mystical visitation by a 20lb carp that was heard shouting in Hebrew, in what many Jews worldwide are hailing as a modern miracle.

Many of the 7,000-member Skver sect of Hasidim in New Square, 30 miles north of Manhattan, believe God has revealed himself in fish form.

According to two fish-cutters at the New Square Fish Market, the carp was about to be slaughtered and made into gefilte fish for Sabbath dinner when it suddenly began shouting apocalyptic warnings in Hebrew.

Many believe the carp was channelling the troubled soul of a revered community elder who recently died; others say it was God. The only witnesses to the mystical show were Zalmen Rosen, a 57-year-old Hasid with 11 children, and his co-worker, Luis Nivelo. They say that on 28 January at 4pm they were about to club the carp on the head when it began yelling.

Nivelo, a Gentile who does not understand Hebrew, was so shocked at the sight of a fish talking in any language that he fell over. He ran into the front of the store screaming: 'It's the Devil! The Devil is here!' Then the shop owner heard it shouting warnings and commands too.

'It said "Tzaruch shemirah" and "Hasof bah",' he told the New York Times, 'which essentially means that everyone needs to account for themselves because the end is near.'

The animated carp commanded Rosen to pray and study the Torah. Rosen tried to kill the fish but injured himself. It was finally butchered by Nivelo and sold.

Bio

As a doctor, Eric Pearl ran a highly successful chiropractic practice for 12 years until one day in 1993 when patients began reporting that they felt his hands on them even though he hadn't physically touched them. For the first couple of months, his palms blistered and bled. Patients soon began seeing angels and reporting miraculous healings from cancers, AIDS-related diseases, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, birth disfigurements, cerebral palsy and other serious afflictions. All of this occurred when Dr. Pearl simply held his hands near them...and, to this day, it continues. Based in Los Angeles, Eric has elicited great interest from top medical researchers worldwide. These include Jackson Memorial Hospital, UCLA, Cedars Sinai, the V.A. Hospital, University of Miami Medical School and the University of Arizona (where he addressed physicians at the request of Dr. Andrew Weil and where new research programs are currently underway). Internationally recognized healer Eric Pearl, has appeared on THE OTHER SIDE, THE LEEZA SHOW, SALLY JESSY RAPHAEL, ART BELL, AMERICA'S HEALTH NETWORK, FOX TV (with Andrew Weil and Dean Ornish) and various news programs across the country.

 

 

 

I know the Bible is sufficient to get anyone through whatever sickness or infirmity they may experience. I also know the Bible is sufficient to communicate warning to this wicked generation. I do not need Benny Hinn, Oral Roberts, or Pat Robertson as long as I have the Bible. I also do not need a fish to tell me "the end is near." Notice I do not challenge the talking fish, or the healings done by Eric Pearl or the Charismatic faith healers. I expect such reports to increase as we approach dispensational change. The error is to automatically attribute these mystical phenomena to God. The magicians of Egypt duplicated the miracles of Moses in the beginning, and so do the mystics of today manifest and experience the unexplainable. Most of this mysticism is just plain chicanery used to make money (multi-millionaire Pat Robertson), but some is unexplainable. It is well known that the greatest deceivers who lead the gullible away from the God of the Bible will manifest unusual powers, or experience mystical events. The Roman Catholic Church has long benefited from the mystical. Everything from visions to manifestations of stomata bleeding have captivated the minds of millions. The perverted priesthood even proclaims mystical power over the literal body and blood of Christ! Mysticism is a powerful tool, and a distinction needs be made between mysticism and the real miracles of God.

The Bible is the only way to make the necessary distinction between miracles and mysticism. The Bible says the very elect will have difficulty discerning as we approach the end. I do not have a problem with the Pearl's, the Robertson's, and the talking fish in discernment at present. I know real miracles are coming. I know of Balaam's ass, the serpent in the garden, and so a talking fish is within my ability to believe. Discernment is only going to become more difficult as time goes by. It is sad that millions have no discernment at even this early stage.

 

 

Miracles and Mysticism Coming

Revelation 11:3-6
3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.

6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
KJV


Revelation 13:12-16

12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
KJV
 

 

Today may be the last day of the old Middle East. The line has been drawn. The Peace plan "Road Map" leading to Armageddon will signal the new Middle East has come! Read Revelation chapter 18 to see the Old Testament come to life in today's news! The peace that brings with it Babylon the Great is the real danger not the war!

Bush Has Audacious Plan to Rebuild Iraq Within Year

Mon Mar 17,12:30 AM ET

WASHINGTON -- The Bush administration's audacious plan to rebuild Iraq (news - web sites) envisions a sweeping overhaul of Iraqi society within a year of a war's end, but leaves much of the work to private U.S. companies, Monday's Wall Street Journal reported

The Bush plan, as detailed in more than 100 pages of confidential contract documents, would sideline United Nations (news - web sites) development agencies and other multilateral organizations that have long directed reconstruction efforts in places such as Afghanistan (news - web sites) and Kosovo. The plan also would leave big nongovernmental organizations largely in the lurch: With more than $1.5 billion in Iraq work being offered to private U.S. companies under the plan, just $50 million is so far earmarked for a small number of groups such as CARE and Save the Children.

My Comments: Where are the Fundamental Missionaries from this Bible White House who should be preaching Christ to these freed Islamic lands?  shush!

Washington is under international pressure to broaden a postwar rebuilding effort, even as it continues to do battle with traditional allies over the merits of launching a war on Iraq. The administration recently has signaled it may seek down the road to give the U.N. and other countries a larger role. President Bush (news - web sites), after a one-hour summit in the Azores Islands, said yesterday that if it comes to war he plans to "quickly seek new Security Council resolutions to encourage broad participation in the process of helping the Iraqi people to build a free Iraq."

 

But U.N. officials said they still have no clear indication how the administration might involve the international body, especially if many of the large rebuilding tasks are already farmed out to U.S. companies directly answerable to Washington.

 

Wall Street Journal Staff Reporter Neil King Jr. contributed to this report

 

 

This plan for Iraq is all well and good. One year, and the whole Middle East changes.The danger is coming later this week with the fall of Saddam when the "Road Map" for Israel peace is announced. It is here where gentiles dare not tread that the "Road Map" to Armageddon rather then peace will be set into motion. I have no doubt President Bush has the best of intentions. What he does not realize is that his "Road Map" is against God's revealed plan for the coming Jewish Kingdom. The Bush "Road Map" for Israel includes a gentile politically expedient plan for a Palestinian State, and here he will go against God! It matters not that the secular political Jews want the same plan. It is wrong! It is against the Bible!

The new Middle East will start with a beautiful picture of a wondrous perspective future. In my estimation, it will be short lived! The best of intensions will change once the antichrist makes his appearance. I'm convinced the New Iraq will lay the foundation for Babylon the Great. The city around which the Great Tribulation revolves. I'm convinced the good intensions of the Bush Administration will lay the foundation for the antichrist to take economic control of planet earth. I'm convinced a Palestinian State will bring with it an international gentile police force that will provide a false security for secular Israel. A force that will abandon the Jews when they will need them most. When Islamic hate for Jews already sown will incite the "Last Jihad" of Ezekiel 38 & 39. The events that will lead to the Great Tribulation are coming into motion this very week. Babylon the Great will be the antithesis of Jerusalem the meek.

 

Islam this week is being forced into two factions. One will invade Israel (Ezekiel 38 & 39), and the other will follow the antichrist and Babylon into wealthy worldly gain. The later will approve a peace treaty between the antichrist and Israel allowing for the building of the Third Jewish Temple so necessary at the midpoint of the Great Tribulation. The end of the "Last Jihad" in Ezekiel 39 may well fix moderate Islamic eyes on Babylon rather then Jerusalem for their future! I watch for two Jewish Old Testament type prophets (two olive trees) to proclaim from Jerusalem a mandate from God to build His House with an altar and throne on the Temple Mount! I'll probably be watching in heaven having been moved aside during the rapture, but these Biblical events are nearly here! This is a momentous week for Bible scholars!

 

 

Babylon the Great

Revelation 18:1-6
18:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.

2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.

PALESTINIANS URGE SADDAM TO BOMB TEL AVIV


JERUSALEM: Thousands of Palestinians flooded West Bank and Gaza Strip streets Saturday to protest against the expected war in Iraq, urging Saddam Hussein to use chemical and biological weapons against the US and Israel. The protests, which took place in Ramallah, Hebron, and several parts of the Gaza Strip, were organized by professional unions. The demonstrators burned Israeli, American, and British flags and denounced the leaders of the three countries as enemies of Islam, according to reports in the Jerusalem Post.
 

 

 

It is clear to me that a Palestinian State is not the reward these Palestinians should gain for their unchanging attitude. I do not hear a cry from the Jews saying our soldiers should wipe Baghdad off the face of the earth. This is a one sided culture we deal with. Their hate has turned them into blood thirsty wild beasts. It is commendable that Bible oriented peoples do not treat them as they would treat us. The hate of these radical Moslems only grows with each passing day. They are oblivious to reality. All they want is to shed Jewish blood, and the blood of any who will stand with the Jews.

The world is about to witness a one sided war by Bible oriented people. What a contrast in attitude toward civilians will be presented to the world. There will be no chemical, or biological revenge attacks by our American heroes. I am just so proud of the compassion our troops exhibit in this all volunteer army. The tragedy of the Viet Nam era has disappeared. The heartless soldier staggering around the streets of Saigon high on drugs and sex has been drummed out of the service, and an honorable fellow with high moral standards has replaced him. I'm convinced we lost the Viet Nam War because we became so immoral during that era. I know our present successes are due to upholding Biblical morality. Oh how Clinton would have destroyed it all by opening the doors to the sex perverts who are destroying the Roman Catholic Priesthood.

The Bible is proving it's worth over the Koran as the world observes the soldiers of Allah compared to the soldiers of Bible cultures. I have no doubt what the Palestinians would do if they had the power we now can wield. How thankful we can be that God has contained this culture. How foolish it is to propose they be given a State where they would have the freedom to duplicate the feats of Saddam. Where they could put all their national wealth together aimed at causing irresponsible animalistic attacks against all whom they hate. Until this culture changes they should be contained as any other wild animal must be contained. It is hard talk. but society must control the wild animals that are always among us! We do not want them in our army, and we do not want them living next door.

The time has come for Islam to call upon the God of the Bible for mercy. God has declared all must come to His Jewish King. Only at His throne can mercy and compassion be granted!

 

 

The Unruly Wild Animals

Deut 13:15-18

15 Thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword,
destroying it utterly, and all that is therein, and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword.
16 And thou shalt gather all the spoil of it into the midst of the street thereof, and
shalt burn with fire the city, and all the spoil thereof every whit, for the LORD thy God: and it shall be an heap for ever; it shall not be built again.
17 And there shall cleave
nought of the cursed thing to thine hand: that the LORD may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and shew thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers;
18 When thou
shalt hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep all his commandments which I command thee this day, to do that which is right in the eyes of the LORD thy God.

ISRAEL ON THE ALTAR
By David Parsons
 

Though extremely fascinating, Tuesday's impassioned debate in the British House of Commons was also quite shocking - not so much for the level of disagreement over war with Iraq, but for the level of agreement that Israel is deserving of similar "pariah" treatment....


Indeed, Blair insisted that he does not believe there is "any other issue with the same power to re-unite the world community than progress on the issues of Israel and Palestine." In other words, the quickest way to mend the huge rifts that have developed worldwide over the Iraqi threat is to impose on Israel the "roadmap" to Palestinian statehood.
 

Incredibly, Israel was repeatedly presented as a scapegoat for the region's ills, and a sacrifice that will re-unite the world.

To rescue Blair from the political brink, US President George W. Bush pledged last week to speed up publication of the three-phase roadmap to a Palestinian state as soon as a credible Palestinian prime minister was appointed with "real authority." But British lawmakers grilled Blair on whether it was a serious commitment from the White House. He assured it is, and there is plenty to suggest he is right.

Bush first presented his "vision" of Palestinian statehood in the fall of 2001, several weeks after the September 11 mass terror attacks. Hoping that it was the right carrot to offer Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat to quell the raging intifada, he cleverly stated that it had always been the "vision" of the United States to see a viable Palestinian state living side by side with a secure Israel.

This despite the fact that the administration of his own father, President George H. W. Bush, gave a written assurance to Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir ahead of the 1991 Madrid peace conference that the US did not support the creation of a Palestinian state.


ARAFAT SNUBBED BY HIS PARLIAMENT OVER PM POWERS

The Palestinian parliament approved a bill on Tuesday defining the new prime minister post while rejecting a measure Yasser Arafat wanted that would have weakened the powers of his second-in-command.

The Parliament's stance put a rare stamp of democracy on Palestinian politics and signaled an erosion of Arafat's grip on power. The PA president dropped his demand to have a final say over Cabinet minister appointments after the measure was defeated on Monday.

Ibrahim Abu Naja, a Fatah legislator, said lawmakers promised Arafat he would be informed - as a courtesy - of a future Cabinet's composition before it was presented for parliamentary approval.

The bill defining the role of the prime minister was approved with 69 votes in the 88-member parliament. Arafat must now sign the legislation and formally offer the job to his preferred candidate, Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen).

The wrangling began last week and continued on Monday when a majority of the parliament backed Arafat's measure, but it failed to gain the necessary two-thirds support to pass. The minority faction endured two votes and accusations of collaboration with America and Israel to undermine Arafat.

Last week US President George W. Bush said that installing a credible Palestinian prime minister with real powers is prerequisite for unveiling a US-backed three-year "roadmap" to Palestinian statehood.

The prime minister will run the government and appoint, supervise and fire Cabinet ministers - a task that was until now was solely Arafat's. But Arafat still retains command over the security forces and final say over
peace talks with Israel.


The parliament's debate, however, reflected a new political dynamism among Palestinians. Younger members of Arafat's Fatah movement, and others fed up with his political control insisted on preserving the prime minister's
authority.

"We are looking for guarantees for a homeland, not for individuals," said Hassan Khraisheh.

The debate was not without the usual drama of Palestinian politics: When the head of the legal committee offered his resignation, the speaker rejected it; and when the secretary of the parliament noticed that an opponent was silently checking his vote count, he stopped in mid-tally and refused to continue.

"You should respect my counting!" he shouted, then stormed from the chamber. He eventually was persuaded to return and resumed counting.

 

 

 

The war with Iraq is bringing with it the establishment of a Palestinian State. The politicians are venturing into an area where gentiles dare not tread! The Palestinians have performed what was required, and typical political eyes are closed as the Islamic blood thirsty wild animals continue their attacks against Jews.

The world recognizes how one sided this war with Iraq really is. We all can see the foolishness of the Iraqi army challenging the United States. Soon, another one sided war will be waged. This time it will be the power of God against all who oppose His plan for peace.

The war seems to have started as I write (6:15 AM Baghdad time). The old Iraq is about to be crushed by the greatest nation the world has ever known for the cause of peace.

A greater cause for peace is revealed in the Bible. It requires the installation of the Prince of peace, and establishment of His Kingdom. All resistance will be overwhelmed by the mighty power of the LORD of Hosts. The whole world will be required to bow to the coming Jewish King of kings, and Lord of lords.

 

 

Rev 14:17-20
arp sickle.

18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.

19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

CONSCRIPTS TO SURRENDER'

Two-thirds of Iraq's conscript army are ready to surrender without a fight, according to US military sources in Kuwait.

Two army divisions totalling 20,000 troops based in the south of Iraq are set to give themselves up to Allied forces in nearby Kuwait, the sources told Sky News

The sources said Iraq's 11th infantry and 51st mechanised divisions were "ready to capitulate". They said troops from the 6th armoured division were also believed to be considering giving themselves up.


CBS: 'Senior Officials' Think Saddam May Not Have Survived
Thu Mar 20 2003 10:33:00 ET

"I am being told by several senior officials not to take that taped speech Saddam gave last night as proof that he survived the attack," CBS NEWS reporter David Martin said on air.

"They say the evidence that put him in the bunker last night was very reliable, and they are confident that the cruise missiles and bunker-busting bombs that were fired at that bunker last night hit the target. So now, intelligence experts are studying the tape to determine if it is really Saddam, or a body double which he is known to use from time to time. And they are running a computerized voice analysis, comparing that speech with known recordings of Saddam's voice. But that's a process that takes awhile. So we may not have a quick answer."

"There is considerable belief in this government that they may, in fact, have gotten Saddam."


"The day of your liberation may soon be at hand," Rumsfeld said. "The days of the Saddam Hussein regime are numbered. We continue to feel there is no need for a broader conflict if the Iraqi leaders act to save themselves and to prevent such further conflict."

 

 

The early going of the war seems great. Answered prayer at these first reports is exciting. I expect there will be reports of American sacrifice before the hostilities end. There is always a cost that someone must pay. There is always need for humility to be remembered.  My prayers go with our American heroes who have great compassion for the non-combatants, but are hard as steel in destroying the evil that years of vicious rule by a wicked regime has produced.

My prayers look to Syria where similar evil exists. I pray for the peace of Jerusalem. It only makes sense that the military job will only be half done in Iraq. The Beka Valley must be purged for the sake of Jerusalem's peace. I know the fleeting reality of this peace plan now coming to the Middle East, but I can also recognize a half done job.

The dream of secular Jewish politicians has always been for a buffer zone of moderate Arab countries surrounding Jerusalem. That dream can only be realized with the downfall of the Syrian government! I would also imagine the Saudi's are in big trouble! Their style of manipulative moderation has come to the front since 9/11. I would think the mistakes learned from too quickly ending Desert Storm will not be repeated this time!

The bigger picture will be that Israel must also learn from their mistakes. It is a mistake to depend on the gentiles rather then God! The "Road Map" to peace coming soon will only lead to Armageddon! We move into the days when more will be destroyed by peace then by war. The gentiles will soon have the antichrist leading the world into anti-Semitic fervor. Israel's trust in the good intentions of the Bush Administration  will prove futile once the antichrist makes his appearance.

 

 

Dan 8:23-27

23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.

24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.

25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

26 And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days.

27 And I Daniel fainted, and was sick certain days; afterward I rose up, and did the king's business; and I was astonished at the vision, but none understood it.

Entire Division of Iraqi Army Surrenders

By MATT KELLEY
The Associated Press
Friday, March 21, 2003; 6:59 PM

An entire division of the Iraqi army, numbering 8,000 soldiers, surrendered to coalition forces in southern Iraq Friday, Pentagon officials said.

Iraq's 51st Infantry Division surrendered as coalition forces advanced toward Basra, Iraq's second largest city. The mechanized division had about 200 tanks before the war, according to independent analysts and U.S. officials.

The 51st was one of the better equipped and trained in Iraq's regular army forces and was the key division protecting Basra, a major transportation and oil shipment hub on the Shatt al-Arab waterway that leads to the Persian Gulf.


Turkish Troops Move Into North Iraq
Reuters
March 21

— SILOPI, Turkey (Reuters) - A Turkish commando force of about 1,500 men crossed into northern Iraq on Friday night, a precursor to eventual larger deployment, a Turkish military official told Reuters.

The United States has told Turkey that it would not welcome a large unilateral incursion into northern Iraq, where Kurdish authorities are suspicious of Turkish motives. Turkey says it needs troops in Iraq to control refugees and forestall any attempt to create a Kurdish state.

Turkey has kept a small garrison in northern Iraq for many years, to fight Turkish Kurdish rebels based there.

 

 

 

The war is going well. I only wish there were fundamental missionaries preaching the gospel of Christ for these disillusioned troopers. They will have survived the war only to die of old age without forgiveness fur their sins.

Turkey is Togarmah of Ezekiel 38 & 39. I believe Gomer may also include parts of Turkey. I have no insight into which Islamic group will dominate? The Kurdish Moslems or the Turkish Moslems? What I do have insight into is that Togarmah and Gomer both join with the Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal as part of the Northern pronged Islamic invasion of Israel.

The war with Iraq has opened all new possibilities for the alignments of the Nations. Islam is being polarized into radical and moderate factions. The Kurds are more radical then the Turks, but there are great numbers of radical Islamic Turks as recent events have revealed. It would not take much for the radical elements to take power.

I watch Turkey as the "Road Map" to Armageddon unfolds. I also watch Syria as the war is only half accomplished with the fall of Saddam.  Secular Israel needs security. It will never have that security as long as the Beka Valley remains filled with radical Arabs.

Only God can bring real peace to this wicked world. The price is absolute submission to the puritanical rule of the Lord Jesus Christ. All other peace plans are doomed to fail. All other security plans will prove futile.

11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

Israel´s Own War Continues

Arab terrorism against the Jews of Israel continued over the past day, as has the Israeli war to counter it. Several attempted attacks were either prevented by security forces or failed to achieve their aims for other reasons.

Last night, two terrorists were detected near the greenhouses of the southern Gush Katif community of Morag. Soldiers fired at the infiltrators and took off in pursuit, as the Arabs retreated to PA-controlled territories. One of two terrorists was killed by the IDF forces, but the second managed to escape.

In Gush Etzion, near Karnei Tzur, a bus was hit by terrorist gunfire on Thursday night. There were no injuries in the shooting, although the bus was damaged. Other vehicles, traveling near the community of Ofrah and on the Hussan bypass road near the community of Beitar, were targeted by Arabs in stone-throwing attacks. There were no injuries reported. In southern Gaza last night, Arab terrorists fired a mortar at an unspecified target. There were no reports of injuries.

On the military front, an IDF position near the Gaza community of Ganei Tal was targeted by gunfire. Also in Gaza, gunfire and grenades were directed at soldiers near the border with Egypt. There were no injuries in the attacks.

During counter-terrorism operations during the night, IDF troops apprehended two Hamas commanders in Qalkilya. One of the commanders, Riad Hutri, is tied to a myriad of terrorist attacks. In addition, IDF troops arrested thirteen other PA residents, suspected of taking part in terrorist activities, throughout Judea and Samaria. The Bethlehem home of a Tanzim terrorist who was shot and killed while trying to perpetrate a suicide bombing attack in Efrat last year was destroyed by the IDF during the night.

In foreign terrorism news, authorities in Germany arrested five Moslems who were working to recruit local Arabs for terrorist attacks. Police in Berlin have raided several buildings in connection with the terrorist threat, including at least one mosque.

 

 

The war of hate goes on with no indication of an end. Long after the fall of Baghdad the hate of Arabs against the Jews of Israel will continue. Nothing short of crushing the entire Palestinian regime can bring an end to the violence. To talk of peace to Arafat proved impossible, and his second in command now the prime minister will prove as worthless as with his mentor.

I do not believe the Canaanites of old were any more evil then the Palestinian Arabs of today. I know how heartless most will find what I think is the only solution to the Israeli - Palestinian conflict, but as long as the hearts of the Palestinians are hatefully blood thirsty for Jews from the cradle to the grave they must be driven out! The "Road Map" giving them a State in the midst of those they have sworn to kill is not a "Road Map" to peace!

The hearts of Israel are going to be changed. God intends to take away the blindness that now prevents them from coming to their Messiah. They are a stiff-necked people, but they are chosen of God. He has given them sovereignty over the Holy Land in these last days. Where the Church failed the Jews will succeed. Notice that the admonition below to drive out the heathen is not connected to their possession of righteousness. God says it is because of the wickedness of the heathen that judgment will fall upon them. It is God who will settle the conflict, but it will not be by giving the heathen a portion in the Holy Land!

The evil of the Palestinians is greater then the Nazis. Only God knows what they would do to the Jews were they able. It is this wickedness that drives the conflict! It is their parents, their teachers, their religious leaders, their media, and their chosen political leaders that are ready to be judged even before God changes the hearts of the Jews!

It Is Their Wickedmess

Deut 9:1-6

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.

U.S. dismayed as Turkish troops pour into northern Iraq

SPECIAL TO WORLD TRIBUNE.COM

Sunday, March 23, 2003

 

The United States has formally abandoned the prospect of a northern front in the war against Iraq as Turkey has once again balked at cooperating with the U.S. war effort.

But what is looming as a major crisis is the danger that Turkey will militarily pursue its own agenda in northern Iraq.

Washington has been dismayed by the invasion of Turkish troops into northern Iraq. Officials said thousands of Turkish troops have crossed the border into Iraq in an operation that was not coordinated with the United States.

 


Flashback: Feb. 21, 2003 — Turkey plans to invade northern Iraq

"It would be notably unhelpful if [Turkish troops] went into the north in large numbers," Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said.

Turkey has denied an invasion of Iraq, Middle East Newsline reported. But at the same time Turkish authorities are believed preparing to expel foreign journalists along the Iraqi-Turkish border.

"As an independent state Turkey does whatever it pleases," Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul said. "We don't want to be misunderstood and therefore we are discussing the issue with our ally."

U.S. officials said Turkey has proven uncooperative in efforts to send American troops through that country and toward Iraq. They said Ankara has also delayed its agreement to allow U.S. aircraft through Turkish air space for strikes on Iraq.

Officials said dozens of U.S. warships waiting off the Turkish coast were ordered to leave the eastern Mediterranean and head for the Persian Gulf. The ships were said to be containing about 20,000 troops from the U.S. Army's 4th Infantry division.

U.S. Central Command has been aiding pro-U.S. Kurdish elements in an offensive against Al Qaida forces in northern Iraq. U.S. officials said about 50 cruise missiles were fired at positions of the Ansar Islam, aligned to Al Qaida and supported by the regime of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.

 

 

Biblical names like Gog, Magog, Meshech, Togarmah, and Gomer occur very rarely in the Bible. They originate in passages dealing with the dispersal of mankind after the flood. These are all names of the grandsons, and great grandsons of Noah. With the exception of the chronology passages in Genesis and Chronicles, they appear only in prophecy passages. The link is the lands where these tribal leaders first settled after the flood. The Caucasus Mountains running between the Black and Caspian Seas separate Turkey from the old USSR, and are critical because one of the highest peaks is Mount Ararat where the Ark landed. Gog, Magog, Meshech, and others went North. Togarmah went South, and Gomer spread out around the Black Sea at the Western end of the Caucasus.

The names Togarmah, and Gomer relate to modern Turkey, and are mentioned in the prophecy of Ezekiel 38 & 39 that is a yet unfulfilled prophecy! This prophecy has long been called the "Coming War with Russia." I think it is time to re-examine this prophecy in light of current events. I have long proposed Ezekiel 38 & 39 is an Islamic invasion of Israel! The Russian connection is the Islamic part ("the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal") of the old USSR, and not the entire nation. Russia does invade Israel which is made clear in Zachariah as the king of the North. I propose that Ezekiel 38 & 39 takes place at the beginning of the Great Tribulation while the Russian Invasion takes place at the end as part of preparation for Armageddon.

Turkey is clearly taking its own path as a result of the Iraq war. They plan to pick the plum of Northern Iraq that the US invasion from the South has presented to them. They purposely manipulated a clear path for themselves by denying US troops access to the North. A present fulfillment of Ezekiel 38 & 39 would expect the people living in the lands of Togarmah and Gomer to follow a path leading to a break with the West with Intent toward eventual invasion of Israel. It is in the news today!

I watch Cyprus for further separation of Turkey from the West.

 

 

 

The Last Jihad

Ezek 38:1-9
38:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:
5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.
7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.
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.

MEDIA BOOMERANG

The microphone reads "IRAQ TV." The screen shows supposed stock market arrows. The station is Al-Jazeera, a mock of Ted Turner's CNN. And on Sunday satellite news turned nightmare as Arab television aired footage of dead American soldiers, some sprawled in a room, and interviews with five U.S. prisoners.

Turner, who once bragged how the invention of all-news global TV brought on the fall of communism at the end of the Cold War, must now be taking a pause at this all-news boomerang.

The 6-minute video which beamed on Sunday showed mankind at its worse -- and Iraqi fighters at their most animalistic.

Disgust and horror do not describe the viciousness of the images. One Iraqi man is captured smiling over dead Americans. Soldiers pants are pulled down, the camera zooms in for a close up of bullet holes in heads as "Al-Jazeera Exclusive" is stamped on the screen.

 

 

 

Allah Akbar (god is great) is the cry of these fanatics who have given themselves fully to the Koran. The reporters have it right. It turns them into animals! Israel has long been the victim of these animals. They have watched the attacks against soft civilian targets aimed not at victory, but rather expressions of blood thirsty hate. Jewish children are a gleeful target of these radical Islamic's. The smile on the face of the pervert above becomes even broader when Jewish children are maimed or killed. It is not every Moslem that thinks this way. Only those who have swallowed the Koran over all human compassion and reason. They have been changed into wild animals. These are the real enemy. It is these radicals that must be crushed utterly and completely before victory can be claimed. The greatest mistake would be to leave them behind to resurface later, and the whole war have to be fought again.

Only the complete crushing of Hitler and the Nazis brought an end to WW II in Europe, and only similar crushing of the entire regime in Baghdad will bring true victory. The perverts who believe they will go to a sexually perverted paradise must be crushed. The smile must be wiped off their face.  They must never be left to pull down the pants of honorable men again!

 

 

Crushing the Heathen

2 Chron 14:9-14

9 And there came out against them Zerah the Ethiopian with an host of a thousand thousand, and three hundred chariots; and came unto Mareshah.

10 Then Asa went out against him, and they set the battle in array in the valley of Zephathah at Mareshah.

11 And Asa cried unto the LORD his God, and said, LORD, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us, O LORD our God; for we rest on thee, and in thy name we go against this multitude. O LORD, thou art our God; let not man prevail against thee.

12 So the LORD smote the Ethiopians before Asa and before Judah; and the Ethiopians fled.

13 And Asa and the people that were with him pursued them unto Gerar: and the Ethiopians were overthrown, that they could not recover themselves; for they were destroyed before the LORD, and before his host; and they carried away very much spoil.

14 And they smote all the cities round about Gerar; for the fear of the LORD came upon them: and they spoiled all the cities; for there was exceeding much spoil in them.

ROADMAP MAY BE BACK ON HOLD UNTIL AFTER IRAQ WAR

After Washington indicated recently it was close to releasing the long-awaited "roadmap" to Palestinian statehood, Israeli officials are now saying it may not be released until after the war in Iraq is concluded.

The United States has reached a covert understanding with Palestinian Authority prime minister designate Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) to put off a formal presentation of the diplomatic roadmap until the new Palestinian cabinet is sworn in, and possibly until after the end of the Iraqi war, according to weekend reports in Ha'aretz.

Israel Radio appeared to confirm the delay on Sunday, reporting that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon had told the weekly Cabinet meeting that Israel would hold negotiations over the roadmap only after the Iraq war was over.

Nevertheless, concern is rising in Israel at the apparent change in the US position regarding the negotiability of the document. Sharon has repeatedly suggested he has assurances from US President George W. Bush that the roadmap is still a "draft" and is open for possible Israeli revisions. Based on this understanding, Sharon appointed a special team to develop a response, which has developed into a priority list of wanted changes.

But more recent statements from Washington, particularly in the wake of intense lobbying by Britain, indicate that the roadmap may be imposed in its current form - a key Palestinian demand, but one which Israel believes willonly lead to another failed peace process.

Meanwhile the CIA is believed to be establishing a special department that will be responsible for implementing the crucial security aspects of the roadmap. Leaked drafts of the roadmap earlier this year placed monitoring functions in the hands of supervisors from the "Quartet" - the US, European Union, United Nations and Russia.

In the later stages of the Oslo process, CIA personnel monitored security cooperation between Israel and the PA. CIA Director George Tenet also worked out a ceasefire plan with the two sides in June 2001 to end the current intifada, but it was never implemented. That plan has been incorporated as a key feature of the roadmap, and Tenet reportedly visited Israel two and a half weeks ago for meetings with Sharon and the heads of the intelligence community.

The CIA move is seen as an indication of the seriousness with which the Americans intend to see the road map implemented. An Israeli government source has said that the Bush administration is getting ready to implement the plan, with an emphasis on the security aspects as the key to any progress.
 

 

 

The on again - off again announcement of the "Road Map" remains the most dangerous part of the War with Iraq. I only pray George Bush will abandon this road map to Armageddon. The hand writing seems written on the wall. Tony Blair needs payback for his support of Bush, and the "Road Map" is what he wants as payment! However, any message written on the wall where gentiles dare not tread should be regarded as a warning. Victory over Saddam can blind the hearts with pride. A gentile peace plan can be conceived as more practical then the plan God has published in the Bible. A heathen Palestinian State in the midst of the Holy Jewish Kingdom God is preparing can only end in disaster.

Mene Mene Tekel Uphasin may again apply to the gentile kings of today. Old Belshazzar tread where gentiles dare not go when he pulled out the spoils of the First Jewish Temple using the holy vessels for his drunken party. His kingdom was flush with pride when that very night the city of Babylon fell to the Medes and Persians.

The war with Iraq is just. I'm convinced it is even right to withdraw our army through Syria cleaning out the Beka Valley. The "Road Map" is stepping too far into God's realm where we dare not tread. A gentile CIA police force does not belong on holy ground. Nothing can stand in God's way as He prepares the Kingdom for His Son. America will have done its duty by crushing Saddam. We will have wiped the smile off the faces of the wild radical Islamic animals. We'll have showed mercy and compassion to those Moslems who reject the blood thirsty animalistic behavior of the radicals. But, to step into Israeli affairs when God is establishing their sovereignty over the Holy Land is not where we belong! Only our pride would let us presume we have a better way!

 

 

The End of the Head of Gold

Dan 5:1-7
5:1 Belshazzar the king made a great feast to a thousand of his lords, and drank wine before the thousand.
2 Belshazzar, whiles he tasted the wine, commanded to bring the golden and silver vessels which his father Nebuchadnezzar had taken out of the temple which was in Jerusalem; that the king, and his princes, his wives, and his concubines, might drink therein.
3 Then they brought the golden vessels that were taken out of the temple of the house of God which was at Jerusalem; and the king, and his princes, his wives, and his concubines, drank in them.
4 They drank wine, and praised the gods of gold, and of silver, of brass, of iron, of wood, and of stone.
5 In the same hour came forth fingers of a man's hand, and wrote over against the candlestick upon the plaister of the wall of the king's palace: and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote.
6 Then the king's countenance was changed, and his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his loins were loosed, and his knees smote one against another.
7 The king cried aloud to bring in the astrologers, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers. And the king spake, and said to the wise men of Babylon, Whosoever shall read this writing, and shew me the interpretation thereof, shall be clothed with scarlet, and have a chain of gold about his neck, and shall be the third ruler in the kingdom.


Dan 5:25-31

25 And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN.

26 This is the interpretation of the thing: MENE; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it.

27 TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.

28 PERES; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.

29 Then commanded Belshazzar, and they clothed Daniel with scarlet, and put a chain of gold about his neck, and made a proclamation concerning him, that he should be the third ruler in the kingdom.

30 In that night was Belshazzar the king of the Chaldeans slain.

31 And Darius the Median took the kingdom, being about threescore and two years old.

in Baghdad
In an Ominous Sky, a City Divines Its Fate

By Anthony Shadid
Washington Post Foreign Service
Wednesday, March 26, 2003; Page A01

BAGHDAD, March 25 -- The wind's howl buffeted Imad Mohammed's window today, suffocating the peal of bombs from Baghdad's outskirts.

Across the sky, the black haze of burning oil trenches mixed with desert sand from a savage storm to wrap the city in an otherworldly glow. Paper, bags and cardboard were blown across the street. Traffic lights and palm trees swayed. A soldier hunkered near the Tigris River, a black scarf draped over his head like a veil.

To Mohammed, the relentless sandstorm was foreboding, a portent of divine will.

"The storm is from God," he said, looking out his trembling window. "Until the aggression started, never in my life did I see a storm like this. We all believe in God, we all have faith in God. And God is setting obstacles against the Americans."

During six days of war, Baghdadis looking to the heavens for omens have had much to contemplate. A terrifying cascade of U.S. bombs has been followed by the apocalyptic smoke of oil fires lit by Iraqi forces, so dense that cars almost collided. The smoke was joined by today's storm, which abruptly ended Baghdad's struggle to reclaim ordinary life. Shops again were shuttered and streets were deserted as a sickly yellow cloaked the sun.

Weary residents spoke of divine intervention, and in the storm they saw God's determination to aid Iraq. But beneath the surface were churning impulses -- of fear and flight, of fatalism and bravado, of grief and dread. With few exceptions, Iraqis still consider political discussions taboo, especially with a foreign journalist shadowed by an official escort. But the storm seemed to draw out anxieties about a future that no one seems willing to predict

'Just like Apocalypse Now'
By Hugh Dougherty in Qatar, Evening Standard

An eyewitness tells today of the heaviest battle of the war so far which has left 750 Iraqis dead.

Sean D Naylor of the American Army Times quotes a US soldier describing the fighting as so intense that "it looks like Apocalypse Now".

 

 

Early in my Bible training I read an account by St. Augustine. It was about a medieval battle that was fought first by angels and demons where the fate of the battle was determined, and then the next day the earthy battle of human armies took place. There were even quotes from local eye witnesses to the spiritual battle the day before. It was too much mysticism for me even at that early state of my studies. However, I do know spiritual battles are real though not with the imagination of Augustine.

I also see a correlation in weather events to spiritual battles. Record 100 year storms were common during WW II. I remember reading of the storm that hit Normandy ripping apart the floating dry docks brought from England. I remember reading of the terrible weather that gave the Nazi Scum who massacred American prisoners of war a great advantage during the Battle of the Bulge. I also read how good prevailed in all those difficulties as I know good will prevail in the present circumstances. I remember seeing that terrible electrical storm that hit our end run during Desert Storm. I also remember the one sided victory not seen since the days Israel cleaned out the pagans from the Holy Land!

Storms and spiritual battles will be on the rise as we approach the latter days of which Daniel spoke about below. Only the God of the Bible can give the strength to endure. The Kingdom is coming with great power and glory. It is a privilege to witness God working this very day preparing the way for the return of His Son!

 

 

Prince of the Kingdom of Persia

Dan 10:10-21

10 And, behold, an hand touched me, which set me upon my knees and upon the palms of my hands.
11 And he said unto me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak unto thee, and stand upright: for unto thee am I now sent. And when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling.
12 Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.
13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.
14 Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days.
15 And when he had spoken such words unto me, I set my face toward the ground, and I became dumb.
16 And, behold, one like the similitude of the sons of men touched my lips: then I opened my mouth, and spake, and said unto him that stood before me, O my lord, by the vision my sorrows are turned upon me, and I have retained no strength.
17 For how can the servant of this my lord talk with this my lord? for as for me, straightway there remained no strength in me, neither is there breath left in me.
18 Then there came again and touched me one like the appearance of a man, and he strengthened me,
19 And said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto thee, be strong, yea, be strong. And when he had spoken unto me, I was strengthened, and said, Let my lord speak; for thou hast strengthened me.
20 Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come.
21 But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince.

US: Iraq Threatening Children, Men Who Don't Fight for Regime

Thursday, March 27, 2003
Associated Press

CAMP AS SAYLIYAH, Qatar  — Iraqi paramilitary forces are seizing children and threatening Iraqi men with execution if they don't fight for the regime, U.S. and British officials said Thursday.

The U.S. commanders around the south-central city of Najaf reported the development to Gen. Tommy Franks, who is commanding forces in the Gulf, said U.S. Central Command spokesman Jim Wilkinson.

"Once again, we see the regime's terrorist tactics, where they bring the innocent onto the battlefield as they try to do anything to stay in power," he said.

He gave no further details. U.S. troops have engaged in fierce firefights in and around Najaf in recent days as they have pressed north toward Baghdad.

Air Marshall Brian Burridge, the top British commander in the Gulf, also reported Thursday that Iraqis loyal to Saddam Hussein were forcing Iraqi conscripts and regular army troops into combat near Basra with the threat of executing them or their families.

OUTSIDE NASIRIYAH, Iraq, Mar. 24 —  In what could be an ominous preview of the battle for Baghdad, Iraqi forces — many of them mingling in civilian clothes with women and children and firing from a hospital — have stymied U.S. Marines attempting to hold a pair of bridges on a key route north to Baghdad.

 

 

These are the Islamic radicals that have sold their souls to the Koran. They must be singled out, and separated from the general population! Their hearts have been changed for the worst; into wild blood thirsty animals who have lost all concepts of civilized behavior. The sensibilities of basic morality that lifts man above the beast is no longer present. These religiously fanatical Moslems who use women and children for shields, or suicide attacks are not something new to Israelis. Israel has been the victim of their blood thirsty hate since the Nation was formed. These animals believe the Koran will reward them with a sexually perverted paradise for their actions. However, the God of the Bible declares such animalistic behavior will bring eternal condemnation in pain and agony. Only one book is true!

Many are asking how long this war will last? There are thousands upon thousands maybe hundreds of thousands of  these perverts that God is marking for judgment and death at this time. The war will last as long as it takes for those being judged to die. These are the animals that hijacked those flights on 9/11 lusting after the blood of a largely female office work force. These are the animals who set their sniper sights on school buses filled with Jewish Children. 9/11 not only woke the sleeping giant, but it was evidence enough for the whole world that the time is right for God to judge.

God is preparing the world for His coming Jewish Kingdom ruled over by the Messiah/Christ. The Great Tribulation is a time of judgment. A picture of that coming judgment is now in the news.  It is not pleasant to read what God is going to do to all who resist His Son on the day of judgment. It will be millions upon millions even hundreds of millions on that day which will follow their animalistic desires to have the freedom to sin. They will follow the antichrist king of Babylon offering wealth, and all the lusting that wealth can buy over the coming puritanical King of Jerusalem. God is preparing a Kingdom for the Lord Jesus Christ that demands submission or perish! The war with Iraq is a lesson for all to contemplate. A one sided slaughter of wild blood thirsty animals who chose their fate by rejecting the mercy of God as revealed in the Bible! The Biblical heavenly Kingdom coming to earth has no place for sexual perverts who would victimize women and children for their own lustful desires. The day for many of these rebels has come! They are the first fruits of even greater judgments to come!

 

 

The Winepress of Wrath

Rev 14:18-20

18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.

19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

Red Cross Harbors Terrorist

Two International Red Cross workers attempted to prevent the IDF from arresting a senior Islamic Jihad terrorist today. An IDF Egoz unit entered the Red Cross building in Jenin today, arrested the terrorist's accomplice, and found two Kalachnikov rifles at the site. When the soldiers asked to enter the offices, the two female workers - from the U.S. and Britain - would not allow them to do so, saying no one was inside. The Israelis insisted on entering, and found the terrorist, Shadi Sukiya, armed with a pistol. They arrested him without incident. Sukiya has long been wanted for his involvement in a series of murderous attacks against Jews.

There have been other incidents in which the PA Arabs took advantage of the Red Cross' status to further terrorist goals. In January 2002, for instance, the IDF captured a wanted terrorist who was taking advantage of the relatively free passage granted to PA ambulances. He was disguised as a doctor, but alert soldiers at a roadblock near Brachah, just southwest of Shechem, detected and arrested him

British: Iraqis Fire on Basra Civilians

Associated Press

Iraqi paramilitary forces in Basra fired mortars and machine guns Friday on a "couple of thousand" Iraqi civilians trying to leave the besieged city, British military officials said.

 

 

The tactics used by the animals who victimize Israel should be watched closely. These are the same tactics that will be used in Iraq, and anywhere else where Islam releases their wild animals. These beasts use humanitarian organizations for their own ends just as they use women and children. It reflexes the hardness of the hearts influenced by blind allegiance to the Koran. It is a new low of bestiality that the world has not till now experienced. A disregard for humanity that makes dirty tricks, or abuse of women and children morally right.  I can only imagine what the world would be like if these radical Moslems were to gain control. It seems Bush had it right in picking where to start putting an end to this radical Islamic movement. The animals must be weeded out of society, or all of Islam then all the world will be sucked into this beastly behavior.

The world had a taste of Nazi oppression where the beast was given control. The holocaust remains the greatest example of man's inhumanity to man. The greatest example of the beast being released. I see this present movement among Islamic radicals as even worse! Afghanistan and the Taliban should have awakened the world to the reality of this evil. The Palestinian regime long before Afghanistan should have opened eyes, but because there is so much animosity against the Jews it was only winked at. 9/11 has brought the whole world into the struggle Israel has been waging for years. Eyes can no longer be diverted from Jerusalem.

God has chosen the Jews to lead the next Biblical dispensation. We wait for their hearts to be changed so those who love righteousness will be willing to follow them. Conservative Christian America stands with the Jews of today willing to sacrifice for their preservation while we wait. The politics in America can change quickly with the results of a single election. A few key votes in Florida called the last election. We who are the friends of Israel may see America turn on them in an instant with the next election, or with the rapture. Peace will never come for Israel from the gentiles. Peace will only come when a new spiritual Israel turns to their God.

 

 

Without Understanding Man is like the Beasts

Ps 49:12-20

12 Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish.
13 This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.
14 Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling.
15 But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.
16 Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased;
17 For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him.
18 Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and men will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself.
19 He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.
20 Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.

U.S. Defense Secretary warns Syria to stop arming Iraq

By Haaretz Service and Reuters

U.S. Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld issued a stern warning to Syria on Friday to stop sending military equipment to Iraqi forces, saying such shipments have included night-vision goggles.

"We consider such trafficking as hostile acts and will hold the Syrian government responsible for the incidents," Rumsfeld said at a Pentagon briefing.

"There's no question but that to the extent that military supplies or equipment or people are moving across the borders between Iraq and Syria, it vastly complicates our situation," Rumsfeld said.

Asked if the United States was threatening military action against Syria, Rumsfeld said: "I'm saying exactly what I'm saying. It was carefully phrased."

"We have information that shipments of military supplies have been crossing the border from Syria into Iraq, including night vision goggles," he said.

Syria dismissed the charges, calling them an attempt to divert attention from reports from Baghdad of heavy civilian casualties. Iraq said more than 50 people were killed on Friday, after some of the heaviest U.S. strikes of the war.

"What Donald Rumsfeld said about the transportation of equipment from Syria to Iraq is an attempt to cover up what his forces have been committing against civilians in Iraq," said a statement from the foreign ministry.

Rumsfeld also warned Tehran that armed Iranian proxies gathered inside Iraq would be considered combatants if they interfered with U.S. forces.

"They report up to the [Iranian] Revolutionary Guard, and they're armed, and there are some additional ones that are close to the border," Rumsfeld told a Pentagon news briefing. "To the extent they interfere with General Franks activities they would have to be considered combatants."

Syria granting free passage for would-be fighters
Syria is granting free passage across its border with Iraq to volunteers who wish to join the fight against the U.S. and British forces, Haaretz defense commentator Ze'ev Schiff reported Friday. Thus far, dozens of volunteers, primarily Palestinians from the refugee camps in Lebanon, have crossed over into Iraq through Syrian-controlled border posts.

The passage of volunteers with Damascus's consent has given rise to the theory that the U.S.-fired missile that struck a Syrian bus traveling in Iraq was an intentional attack on a busload of such volunteers. The bus left Damascus on Sunday and was hit by the missile some 50 kilometers inside Iraqi territory. The missile strike left five people dead and dozens injured.

Speaking on the subject, the Syrian military analyst, Hitham al-Kilani, said in an interview on Al Jazeera, on 24 March, that "the Syrian border was opened to Syrian, Arab and Muslim volunteers wishing to reach Iraq and participate in the fighting against the American invasion."

Al Kilani said that the Syrian border was also open to Iraqi refugees seeking to enter Syria as a result of the fighting in their country.

If the attack against the bus was not an accident, it shows that U.S. intelligence is aware of the movement of these volunteers, via Syria, into Iraq.

While many Arab states have voiced opposition to the American offensive in Iraq, Syria is the sole country that has opened its border to volunteers seeking to join the Iraqi forces. Even Iran blocked its border and is not allowing passage into Iraq from its territory. The Turkish border is also blocked and the Jordanians are also being very strict. ...


The Syrian mufti, Ahmed Kaftaru - a government official - recently called on Muslims worldwide to employ all means, including suicide operations, to defeat the American-British-Zionist aggression.

A second Syrian official, who heads the information division of the Syrian Foreign Ministry, described the United States as "the empire of murder and destruction."

Syria's active support for Saddam Hussein has been particularly evident in recent months, with Damascus even purchasing military equipment on behalf of the Iraqi army. The equipment was reportedly delivered from its country of origin to the Syrian port of Latakia and then carried on trucks to Iraq. The purchases were made from a number of East European countries, and the equipment included engines for Russian-made tanks and aircraft. Also purchased were tank carriers, probably from Germany.

 

 

 

I watch Syria with great interest. I know the false peace that would cause Israel to become a land of unwalled villages must have a moderate Syria as its neighbor. The pacification of Iraq is only half the job that needs to be done by the US. The wild men of Syria must also be pacified or killed. The false peace I expect before the "Last Jihad" of Ezekiel 38 & 39 may be in the offering with the end of the War with Iraq if Syria is included. Syria needs to be pacified before secular Israel would feel they have a large enough buffer from the radical Arab countries surrounding them. Only the pacification of both Iraq and Syria would cause Israel to feel at rest. Secular Israel wants to dwell safely, but without turning to God. That is why this "Road Map" to peace is not going to work!

I find it interesting that the immediate neighbors of Israel such as Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Egypt do not actively participate in the invasion of Ezekiel 38 & 39. Only Syria remains actively hostel to Israel today. The fall of Saddam will open the door for the building of the Great City of Babylon as described in Revelation 18, and the further pacification of Syria will open the door for Israel to dwell in false safety.

These are exciting days for those who love to study the Bible!

Pope Warns That War Could Bring 'Religious Catastrophe'

Reuters
Sunday, March 30, 2003; Page A30

VATICAN CITY, March 29 -- Pope John Paul II said today he hoped that the human tragedy of the war in Iraq would not set Christians and Muslims against each other and spark "a religious catastrophe."

"War must never be allowed to divide world religions," he told visiting Roman Catholic bishops from Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim country. The pope said good inter-religious relations were important "at this moment of heightened tension in the entire world community."

"Let us not permit a human tragedy to become a religious catastrophe," he said.

The pope is opposed to the war in Iraq and led a Vatican diplomatic campaign to avert it. The Iraq conflict has put the Vatican at odds with the Bush administration because the pope has refused to bless the conflict as a "just war."

 

 

The greatest religious catastrophe of all is the religions of the world, the flesh, and the Devil in conflict with the Jewish Kingdom plan of the God of the Bible. It is this conflict that is leading the world to Armageddon! It is this conflict with the coming Jewish King that stirs the Wrath of God so that He destroys the rebels in such great numbers that their blood flows a thousand six hundred furlongs to the height of a horse's bridal.  Diplomacy will never solve this coming conflict. Only by abandoning the man made compromised religions of the world, and turning to the Savior/Messiah of the Bible can men survive this coming judgment!

The Pope seems quick to evaluate justice when it comes to the Bush administration which according to a recent Time Magazine report is the most openly Biblical acknowledging administration in history. It might do the Pope good to evaluate the justice of his own perverted priesthood which accepts (celibate) homosexuality, and has now been exposed for all its unjust filthiness.

It is interesting to see all who oppose the war with Iraq. There is definite animosity with the Bush Administration because it is standing shoulder to shoulder with Israel. America is really the only friend Israel has. Many would prefer that friendship be broken. By standing with Israel, we acknowledge God has given sovereignty to the Jews over the Holy Land. This is what blinds this Pope's ability to correctly evaluate what is just! This Pope as well as all his predecessors have long usurped Israel's Biblical claim to the Holy Land. The Pope thinks Jerusalem belongs to the Roman Catholic Church, or at least it should! He would even accept Palestinian sovereignty over Jewish sovereignty for now. It is no wonder he sees those who support the Jews as unjust in whatever they do to preserve Jewish sovereignty over the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount!

 

 

Nations United at  a Jewish Jerusalem

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.
