Israel Responds: Three Top Terrorists Dead
17:22 Feb 29, '04 / 7 Adar 5764

The Israel Air Force carried out a successful counter-terrorism strike in Gaza last night, killing three top Islamic Jihad terror leaders in a pin-pointed missile attack. One of them was Mahmoud Ouda, 23, the Gaza commander of Islamic Jihad, and all three had been wanted for involvement in previous attacks and planning future ones.

Shortly before 7 PM last night, an IDF helicopter fired missiles towards a car carrying the three terrorists as it made its way in the Sheikh Radwan neighborhood in Gaza City. Several passersby were also injured in the attack, and one boy was reported killed.

Following the attack, Defense Minister Sha'ul Mofaz decided - in opposition to the IDF Southern Command's recommendation - not to open the Erez Industrial Zone this morning, leaving thousands of Gaza Arabs at home. The Erez Crossing, however, was opened, enabling those who work in pre-1967 Israel to do so. Israeli police forces are on high alert for terrorist violence.

Ouda, the main target of the missile raid, masterminded the murderous attack in the Netzarim army base four months ago in which two female soldiers and a male soldier were killed. He also operated several mortar shell gangs, worked to enhance his organization's terror capabilities, and was planning attacks for the near future. The PA arrested, and released him, several times for his activities.




Every time God allowed the Jews to enter the Holy Land there was conflict! It stands to reason that at this third miraculous entrance conflict would again be present. It is a dirty business dealing with wickedness and resistance. Joshua was well aware of the force needed to accomplish the first entrance, and the Jews of today know well the force necessary at this third entrance. The gentile opposition has been driven to animalistic hate in resisting the inevitable. God's intent is to keep forcing the issue until victory is won! Compromise is not an attribute of the God of the Bible. The LORD of Hosts knows nothing but unconditional victory.

Many gentiles are of the mindset that the time is not right for God to force His will on the entire planet. They would have the nation of Israel compromise for an unattainable peace. They would have the God of the Bible cease and desist. They think the wisdom of man is greater then the wisdom of God! They force their will on the secular Jewish government to implement the gentile road map. They expect the Jewish government to remove the Independent fundamental Jewish settlers who have become a stumbling block to their peace plan.

The vast majority of the gentile religions would have this third entrance of the Jews into the Holy Land fail completely. They have all taught that they would be the victors of this age! A Jewish victory at this time would prove their theology was false! Victory for Israel over the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount has worldwide consequences of which the religions of man can not tolerate.



Occupation and Conquest

Josh 12:7-24

7 And t
hese are the kings of the country which Joshua and the children of Israel smote on this side Jordan on the west, from Baal-gad in the valley of Lebanon even unto the mount Halak, that goeth up to Seir; which Joshua gave unto the tribes of Israel for a possession according to their divisions;
8 In the mountains, and in the valleys, and in the plains, and in the springs, and in the wilderness, and in the south country; the Hittites, the Amorites, and the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites:

Ps 21:10-11

Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.

For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.





Fatah gunmen shoot at point blank range


Two young Israeli parents became the latest in a long line of Shabbat shooting victims, when their car was ambushed by Palestinian gunmen on Friday night as they traveled on the Ashkelon road, which runs along the southern side of the 1967 ‘green line.’ The couple is survived by a 2-year-old daughter.


Eitan Kukoi, 30, and Rima Novikov, 25, had left their toddler safely at home in the Livna-Shani settlement, which straddles the 1967 border southeast of Hebron, and were traveling to a party in Ashdod, when caught in a roadside ambush.


After the initial volley of shots forced the car to a halt, the gunmen approached the vehicle and fired another round of bullets from point-blank range, Ha’aretz reports, ensuring that both their victims were dead.


The Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, linked to the Palestinian Authority’s governing Fatah movement, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command – both claimed responsibility for the attack. Israeli security forces believe, however, that it was probably carried out by a local Fatah cell that received funding from the Lebanon-based Popular Front.


According to press reports, the victims were recent immigrants who were planning to move to Be'er Sheva. Kukoi's bereaved sister, Tasya Levin, told reporters: "The terrorists are getting exactly what they want - they kill us, and are also driving us away from our homes."


It is the first fatal shooting in the area since the start of the armed Palestinian intifada three and a half years ago. Israeli police warn that until the Judean sections of Israel’s security fence are completed later in the year, terror groups will re-double their efforts to carry out attacks in the south. 




Three Palestinian teenagers, two 14 year-olds and a 16 year-old dispatched by Palestinian terrorist groups to carry out shooting attacks against Israelis in the northern city of Afula were arrested near Jenin late last week. All three were identified as residents of Tubas, northeast of Nablus and each told investigators they were willing to be killed for the sake of the cause. According to The Jerusalem Post the parents of only one of the youths expressed outrage at the fact that their young son was recruited. "I will complain to the Palestinian intelligence to find whoever wanted to send my son... I have to find out who these people are who wanted to send my son, my young son." Muhammed Abu Mahsen told The Post. Israeli security officials noted that Hamas frequently sends minors to conduct dangerous reconnaissance missions ahead of planned attacks.




An Islamic Jihad suicide bomber riding a bicycle blew himself up on Friday afternoon near an IDF jeep outside the Jewish settlement of Kfar Darom in the Gaza Strip. The bomber was killed, and no other injuries were reported in the incident. The device is believed to have detonated prematurely due to a technical malfunction.



The Islamic Arab Palestinians continue down the road of total depravity. They openly exploit their own children to do their wicked desires. Their hate for Jews has driven them to the most beastly of behaviors in that they viciously kill their own young. All civilized behavior has been abandoned as the hardness of their hearts drives them into mindless wild animalistic behavior.

The Jap warlords were driven to the same behavior when they released the suicide bomb pilots of their own invention at the end of World War Two. The Nazi's murdered more Germans then Americans during the end of the War as they sought any who did not stand to the death against the overwhelming Allied Armies.  This kind of desperate animalistic behavior is not something new, but it is behavior that must be crushed. The Jews must not be abandoned to forever victimization by Islam!

It is the God of the Bible not the Jews who is forcing His will on the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. Dispensational change is causing men to become the animals the Bible always said they are. Frustration because of overwhelming force has put the Islamic Arab Palestinians in the forefront of what the God of the Bible is doing during this generation. The ultimate end will be Biblical righteousness! The coming King of Jerusalem shall save all the children from the evil animalistic oppressors. Mankind hates this King's puritanical holiness. The battle over the Holy Land is engaged. The Bible says the victory will be the Lord's. He will rule from sea to sea when it is all over. The enemy that shoots His chosen People at point blank will lick His dust when the battle is over. The Coming Jewish Kingdom is in the balance. The coming victory is already a forgone conclusion!



The Coming King of Righteousness

Ps 72:1-9
72:1 A Psalm for Solomon.
Give the king thy judgments, O God, and
thy righteousness unto the king's son.
He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment.
3 The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills,
by righteousness.
4 He shall judge the poor of the people,
he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.
5 They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations.
6 He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth.
In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.
He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.
9 They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and
his enemies shall lick the dust.

35% increase in new building starts in settlements in 2003

By Moti Bassok, Haaretz Correspondent

There was a 35 percent increase in the number of new building starts in the settlements in 2003, figures published Tuesday by the Central Bureau of Statistics show.

The settlements were one of just two areas to see an increase in construction activity last year. Work began on just 29,670 new apartments around the country in 2003 - the lowest number since 1989 and 8 percent down on the previous year. The CBS figures show that the building industry is sinking deeper into crisis.

The only other place to see a spurt in building activity was Haifa where there was work began on 3,238 new apartments, an increase of 5 percent on the previous year.

Tel Aviv and the south of the country saw the sharpest fall in the number of building starts, 23 percent down on 2002 in both areas, while in Jerusalem the number of building starts fell 15 percent.

The last quarter of 2003 was the sixth consecutive quarter to see a fall in the number of building starts. This figure fell by a total of 14 percent in the second half of 2003 compared to the first half of the year. Most of the new buildings, 22,310, were private projects (a 10 percent fall on 2002) while 7,360 apartments were for public housing (a fall of 5 percent on the previous year).

Some 33,500 apartments were completed in 2003, down 13 percent on 2002. This is the lowest number for apartments completed since 1990. The last quarter of 2003 was also the seventh consecutive quarter to see a fall in the number of projects completed.




It is clear the Jewish people are moving overwhelmingly into Yesha. The building industry is severely depressed, and yet the independent fundamental Jewish Settler movement has grown by 35% over last year. The occupation of Judah, Samaria, and the Gaza is quickly turning into conquest. The settlement growth comes with a price. It is in your face confrontation with one of the most brutal cultures in the world today. Jewish families enter the lion's den with almost no support, and they just keep going?

Fear not is a true attribute of these settlers. Neither be dismayed is their testimony. Their own government uses them like pawns. One day they are the front line of defense, and the next day they are expendable for whatever way the political wind blows. How they keep settling without dismay is a wonderment.

This third miraculous return of the Jews to the Holy Land is as wondrous as the first two. The same fear and dismay that Joshua, and Ezra had to overcome is being encountered by these independent fundamental Jewish settlers. They are proving to a skeptical gentile world that they are as strong and as of good a courage as their forefathers. The same promise God gave to each of those past two generations of Jewish conquerors is valid for today. "For thou must go with this people unto the land which the LORD hath sworn unto their fathers to give them, and thou shalt cause them to inherit it." There are no other people! It is this people of this generation. There are no others!



Deut 31:6-9

Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

7 And
Moses called unto Joshua, and said unto him in the sight of all Israel, Be strong and of a good courage: for thou must go with this people unto the land which the LORD hath sworn unto their fathers to give them; and thou shalt cause them to inherit it.

And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.

9 And Moses wrote this law, and delivered it unto the priests the sons of Levi, which
bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and unto all the elders of Israel.

Ps 2:6

6 Yet have I set my king upon
my holy hill of Zion.





An article in the official PA newspaper "Al Ayyam" has confirmed reports that the Dome of the Rock, the Muslim shrine built over the site of the ancient Jewish temples in Jerusalem, was damaged in the earthquake that rocked Israel on February 11, ICEJ News has learned.


News of damage to the gold-plated, domed roof first appeared in the Arabic paper "Al Quds" several weeks after the 5.3 quake rattled the country.


It is unclear if Israeli authorities have been allowed to inspect the damage yet.


The emir of the United Arab Emirates has offered to fund repairs to the Dome, jumping ahead of other Islamic rulers that have traditionally competed to be the main patrons of the site.


The Dome was re-plated with gold in the 1990's by the late King Hussein of Jordan, who reportedly sold a major Hashemite family holding to cover the $8.25 million tab.


In May of 1992, the Saudi regime attempted to contribute $10 million directly to the Jerusalem Waqf (Islamic trust) through UNESCO for the restoration, while Morocco's ruling dynasty has also laid claim to a special guardianship over the site.





Note: The scramble in the Islamic world for some claim to sovereignty over this one single place on planet earth! It should be no surprise to those familiar with Ezekiel 38 & 39 that Morocco should be attempting to enter the fray. Morocco is part of Islamic North Africa which will be part of the Southern prong of the three pronged Islamic invasion Ezekiel forecasts. The offers of such large amounts of money are hoped to give the donor guardianship rights over the Temple Mount.

The Bible says that this one place, this holy hill, belongs not to men. but to the God of the Bible. It is on this one single hill that God has long ago said He will set His King. The entire Islamic world will have to step aside when the King returns to His place. The entire world will have to step aside when the King comes to His Holy Hill.

Today, the secular Jewish government treats this Holy Hill like a hot potato. They would give it away in a heartbeat were it not for a minority of independent fundamental Jews who would die before leaving their government do such a blasphemous act. The God of the Bible has given the Jews sovereignty over this Holy Hill in 1967. It has been a stone of stumbling to the secular Jews, Islam directly, and the whole world ever since.

Read the Bible, not the Koran if you want to understand why this Holy Hill is so special.

Ps 2
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,
Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
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.
Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
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.

Mic 5:2

2 But thou,
Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.



The strange case of Bethlehem
By P. David Hornik  March 1, 2004

At a time when a film about Jesus is taking America by storm, the fact that the town of his birth, Bethlehem, has become predominantly Muslim rather than Christian is not exactly a hot item. Just half a century ago Bethlehem was 80% Christian; today it's down to 20% and constantly dwindling. Like Christian Arabs elsewhere in the Palestinian Authority - an entity whose official religion is Islam and whose basic laws reflect the Shari'a - Bethlehem's Christians have been subject to discrimination and harassment and are abandoning the town to those aiming for an Islamic monolith in the Middle East.

But the home of the Church of the Nativity and of Rachel's Tomb, a focus of prayer and pilgrimage for both Christians and Jews, is not only succumbing to grim Islamic totalitarianism. Even worse, Bethlehem is now a terrorist haven. This despite the fact that it's within walking distance of Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, a country with a modern army of hundreds of thousands whose citizens are the victims of Bethlehem terror. The situation is bizarre and calls into question the competence and sanity of the Sharon government.

Last Sunday morning, February 22, a suicide bomber literally walked into Jerusalem from Bethlehem, got on a bus, and blew himself up, killing eight Israelis and wounding scores. No Pearl Harbor or September 11, this event was neither unusual nor surprising; in fact, it was predictable.

For a couple of years, Israel and the Palestinian Authority have engaged in a strange dance over Bethlehem. In April 2002, as part of Operation Defensive Shield, Israel took control of the city and terror attacks from it stopped. But in mid-May, under pressure from the Bush administration, Israel obligingly withdrew and handed the city back to the PA. On May 22, a Fatah terrorist from Bethlehem blew himself up in Rishon Letzion, killing two Israelis and wounding many more. The Israeli army then reoccupied the city for several days, arresting suspects from the Palestinian intelligence forces. But by June, it had restored the city to the willing stewardship of Dar al-Islam. Promptly, on June 18, a Bethlehem bomber killed nineteen on a Jerusalem bus. Later that month, another emissary of the town was only able to wound five on a Jerusalem street. Israel, concluding this latest experiment wasn't working so well, re-retook Bethlehem.

But the extraordinary chess game continued. In August the Israeli government, apparently concluding that two months of enforced quiet in Bethlehem heralded the messianic age, yet again withdrew from the city. Indeed, it took all of an additional three months before another Bethlehem bomber struck - killing, on November 21, eleven people on a bus in the Kiryat Menachem neighborhood of Jerusalem.

This time Israel cracked down: it reentered Bethlehem and stayed there a whole eight months, a period in which no attacks were mounted from the city. But in July last year, our government decided it was time to try its - and our - luck again and withdrew. Indeed, from that point so much time went by without a made-in-Bethlehem exploit that one might have thought the Kingdom of Heaven had descended to earth. Until, that is, the morning of last January 29, when my son, sleeping in his flat in the Rehavia neighborhood of Jerusalem, was woken up by a huge boom. Another raider from the enclave just to the south had struck, and the bombed-out bus eventually traveled to The Hague. The eleven dead stayed where they were.

Though I think of myself as a realist, I suffer from terminal naivete. I really thought that at that point we'd take Bethlehem again, not wait to see if the latest mishap was just an aberration. But we didn't. Our forces were instructed to blow up the home of the bomber and make some arrests - that's all. Then we waited for the Palestinians' next move. It came last Sunday.

The Islamists, among whom Yasser Arafat was a pioneer and is still at the forefront, want to drown the Judeo-Christian world in blood, and they're succeeding. They've got Bethlehem and the Temple Mount, the parts of the Holy Land they control are almost empty of Christians and the Jews are supposed to be yanked out by their government, and they're gunning for the rest. It may be that the Bush administration, out of a mix of geopolitical calculation and coziness with the Saudis and others, has a hand in making the Israeli government behave in ways that appear bizarre, suicidal, and criminally irresponsible. If Islamists can take over the town of Jesus' birth, drive the Christians out, use it as a base to slaughter Jews in Jerusalem, and get away with it - we're not doing well.



Oh little town of Bethlehem! It is no Hollywood passion drama put forth by the money changers of today. It represents the reality of what the Islamic Arab Palestinians are doing in the Holy Land. I'm amazed at this generation's ability to believe the lie under the auspices of political correctness. Satan, the father of lies, has this generation in his pocket. These Islamic Arab Palestinians are carbon copies of the Nazis who menaced the last generation. The great lie is that they hate the Jews with even greater fervor, but this generation wants them treated with kid gloves. The Pope, and his Roman Catholic Church have become even more forgiving and magnanimous to these wild animals then God Almighty. Official Catholicism has a paternal permissiveness with these beasts at the victimization price to the Jews. I wish they were so permissive with Christian Fundamental Missionaries in those countries controlled by militant RC priests. Last year, the terrorists who sought refuge in the Church of Nativity during the Israeli roundup of these mindless animals found a friend in the Pope who personally provided them with safe conduct to other countries. His thanks was their attempt to burn down the Church. A typical response by these admitted murderers of Jewish woman and children. Oh that this Pope had compassion for the real victims of the Palestinians? The hate for Jews among the Roman Catholics is so great they would rather have the Islamic Arab Palestinians control Bethlehem then the Jews. It is a sad indictment on this generation as to what is politically and religiously correct. Never mind what the Bible says will be the future for the Holy Land!

Everything Biblical with this generation is presented as it is not! The very gospel itself is presented by the most brazen pornography promoting culture known to mankind, and the main stream Christian Church becomes ecstatic. Some of the top Christian leaders have fallen over each other calling this Roman Catholic rendition of emotional passion as the forerunner of the next major revival of Christianity!

Let me shake you back to reality!!! Just as the modern true story of Bethlehem denies the Palestinian thugs of any passive sympathy for their calculating vicious behavior, so also would a real revival cause the Hollywood crowd to fall on their knees begging for forgiveness for their heinous crimes over the last 40 years that has corrupted an entire generation. A real revival would cause Mel Gibson to repudiate the religion that keeps him blind to the Biblical gospel message. He would be first to strip the Pope of any claim to the Biblical Christ, and the Biblical gospel message. A real Christian revival would shut down Hollywood turning it into a shame filled ghost town never to be resurrected. I'm sure Las Vegas would quickly follow as Biblical righteousness would again bless the land of the free. I've read where George Whitfield preached in the last real revival during the Great Awakening that the road houses would close after he left. It was not that Hatchet Annie followed him, but rather because the patrons stopped coming! Folks, that's what happens during a real Biblical revival. The phony revivals of this generation are all talk, but no reality. I already know the talk will be ear shattering about the latest revival of this generation. I myself will not partake of this farce. The Father of lies has not hoodwinked me only because I read, and can't be fooled by mere talk. Only the Bible helps keep me from being overly gullible to Satan's subtle lies. The fruit of this latest unholy alliance will do nothing to awaken purity and holiness in this generation. It only has the politically, and religiously correct Hollywood view.  It has long ago abandoned the real Bible for the lies of the father of lies.



Biblical Revival

Zech 13
In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness.
2 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the
LORD of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land.
3 And it shall come to pass, that when any shall yet prophesy, then his father and his mother that begat him shall say unto him,
Thou shalt not live; for thou speakest lies in the name of the LORD: and his father and his mother that begat him shall thrust him through when he prophesieth.
4 And
it shall come to pass in that day, that the prophets shall be ashamed every one of his vision, when he hath prophesied; neither shall they wear a rough garment to deceive:
5 But he
shall say, I am no prophet, I am an husbandman; for man taught me to keep cattle from my youth.
And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.
7 Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the
LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.
8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.
9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried:
they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

Est 9:1
9:1 Now in the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar, on the thirteenth day of the same, when the king's commandment and his decree drew near to be put in execution, in the day that
the enemies of the Jews hoped to have power over them, (though it was turned to the contrary, that the Jews had rule over them that hated them;)






A survey conducted amongst the citizens of eight American and European states shows a majority believes the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has increased the threat of international terrorism.


According to the poll, commissioned by the Associated Press, 59% feel the situation between Israel and the Palestinians has given rise to the danger of world terror.  Conversely, only 38% view the war in Iraq as a contributing factor


A similar European Union sponsored poll last November found a similar number of people (59%) ranked Israel as posing the greatest threat to world peace. Some 53% identified North Korea, Iran and the United States equally.

Purim Holiday Begins Saturday Night
16:20 Mar 05, '04 / 12 Adar 5764

The holiday of Purim begins on Saturday night in most of the world, and on Sunday night in Jerusalem. Several other cities, such as Tiberias, will celebrate aspects of Purim on both days.

Purim is one of Judaism's more colorful and joyous holidays. It commemorates, as described in the Book of Esther, Haman's foiled attempt to wipe out all the Jews in the wide-ranging Persian Empire 2,450 years ago. A major theme of the holiday is "abrupt and miraculous turnabout," with the Jews taking control over those who tried to kill them (Esther 9,1), and the reversal of "sorrow to joy, mourning to holiday... days of feasting and joy, sending portions one to another, and gifts to the poor" (9,22). On the Sabbath before Purim, the Torah passage commanding the blotting out of the Amalekite nation, of which Haman was a descendant, is read aloud.

Though not a public holiday in Israel, schools will be closed, and many offices and stores will operate on a reduced basis, if at all. Many cities mark the day with a special parade known as the Adloyada; the most famous of these takes place in Tel Aviv. Many kindergartens, schools, synagogues, and towns will also host special Purim parties and carnivals, while yeshiva students sing and dance into the night.






Understand, if the whole world voted today it would be an overwhelming statement that the Jews are to blame! It is not the Irish. It is not Pakistan and India. It is not Bosnia. It is not North Korea, or China. It is not even the present war in Iraq. The reason why there is not peace in the world is the Jews! What is this terrible sin of which the Jews are guilty? It is following the God of the Bible who promised them He would bring them back to their Promised Land in the latter days.

Purim represents a miraculous turn around of what should have been the ethnic cleansing of all Jews from planet earth into a Jewish victory of an unparalleled historical Biblical reality. God is not finished with the Jews. The Book of Esther will find a new parallel before God is finished with His future plan for the Holy Land. What God is finished with is the Christian Church! Dispensational change can only mean the removal of all the born again believers out from the great Apostate Whore now posing as Christianity. The coming Kingdom will be centered in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. It is Jewish through and through. The gentile Church must step aside as Judaism did at the change from the last dispensation. God made very specific promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob which must be kept.

Hate and blame against the Jewish people has only begun. The antichrist controlling the great whore pf Apostate Christianity after the rapture will again represent another Haman. The world has been given little pictures of the coming treachery through Hitler, Saddam, and Arafat. The worst is yet to come, and the Bible says the world will follow him.

Only a miraculous turn about will be able to save the remnant of the Jews in those latter years. That is exactly what the Bible says will happen with the coming of the Jewish Messiah/King.



Haman's of Time

Est 7:5-10

5 Then the king Ahasuerus answered and said unto Esther the queen, Who is he, and
where is he, that durst presume in his heart to do so?

6 And Esther said, The adversary and enemy is
this wicked Haman. Then Haman was afraid before the king and the queen.

7 And the king arising from the banquet of wine in his wrath went into the palace garden: and Haman stood up to make request for his life to Esther the queen; for he saw that there was evil determined against him by the king.

8 Then the king returned out of the palace garden into the place of the banquet of wine; and Haman was fallen upon the bed whereon Esther was. Then said the king, Will he force the queen also before me in the house? As the word went out of the king's mouth, they covered Haman's face.

9 And Harbonah, one of the chamberlains, said before the king, Behold also, the
gallows fifty cubits high, which Haman had made for Mordecai, who had spoken good for the king, standeth in the house of Haman. Then the king said, Hang him thereon.

10 So they
hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king's wrath pacified.

Rev 19:19-21

19 And I saw
the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.

20 And t
he beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Est 6:6

6 So Haman came in. And the king said unto him, What shall be done unto the man whom the king delighteth to honour?
Now Haman thought in his heart, To whom would the king delight to do honour more than to myself?

Est 6:10

10 Then the king said to Haman, Make haste, and take the apparel and the horse,
as thou hast said, and do even so to Mordecai the Jew, that sitteth at the king's gate: let nothing fail of all that thou has spoken.



Numerous Purim Attacks Thwarted
14:24 Mar 07, '04 / 14 Adar 5764

The past 48 hours have seen a drastic spike in attempted terror attacks, but just like the Purim story – in which a genocidal plot against the Jewish people resulted in the destruction of the plotters rather than the Jews – the terrorists failed to inflict any damage.

“In addition to reading the Megilla (the Purim story) and delivering mishloach manot (gifts given to one another on Purim) Israel has had to adopt another yearly custom – foiling attempts to carry out terror attacks on Purim.” That is how the noontime IDF Radio broadcast began.

Over the Sabbath, three vehicles, two painted to look like IDF jeeps, took part in what was to have been a major multi-stage terror attack at the Erez Crossing in Gaza. The attack began when the first vehicle, a taxicab loaded with explosives, detonated near an IDF post at the southern entrance of the workers terminal at the Erez industrial zone.

Following that explosion, what looked like two IDF jeeps arrived at the scene. An Arab terrorist jumped out of one of the jeeps and opened fire at an IDF post at the terminal. The soldiers returned fire and threw a hand grenade at the terrorist. The gunman was not hit, returned to the jeep, and both jeeps continued towards the Erez terminal.

The first jeep exploded near a PA roadblock at the entrance to the Erez terminal. The other jeep continued towards the IDF post at the VIP passage of the terminal, and tried unsuccessfully to break through the metal barrier. A gunman wearing an IDF uniform exited the jeep and opened fire at the soldiers inside the post. The soldiers reacted quickly and shot the gunman and a second terrorist inside the jeep dead.

According to PA reports, several PA policemen were injured as result of the explosions. In searches conducted after the incident, two Kalashnikov assault rifles, 10 hand grenades and 10 magazines were discovered. In a press release, the IDF spokesman’s office said, “It is important to stress that thanks to the alertness of the IDF soldiers at the Erez crossing a large-scale attack was prevented. This attempt is evidence of long-term and serious planning of the three terrorist organizations (Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Fatah), to carry out a large-scale attack and target IDF soldiers and Israeli civilians at the Erez crossing.

Following the attack, IDF forces entered the El Buriej slums near Gaza City upon receiving intelligence information about impending attacks emanating from the area. The planned attacks including planting explosive devices and shooting anti-tank missiles at Jewish targets. After IDF troops, escorted by tanks, armored personnel carriers, and helicopters, entered the slums, calls went out over the mosques’ loudspeakers calling upon residents to come out of their homes and fight.

During the operation, intense exchanges of fire erupted between armed terrorists and IDF soldiers. Terrorists fired dozens of anti-tank missiles, along with automatic fire and several explosive devices and grenades towards IDF forces.

PA sources report at least 14 killed and over 60 wounded in the battle. No IDF casualties were reported. In a statement to the press, Chief-of-Staff, Lt. Gen. Moshe Yaalon stated, “It is important to stress that the terrorist organizations endanger the civilian Palestinian population with the use of buildings and infrastructures in the heart of populated areas for their terrorist activities.”

Ya’alon added that this and other operations in recent days have prevented suicide bombing attacks and are part of the ongoing war against terror. He made it clear that such operations would continue if and when they are deemed necessary.

Overnight, a Golani Brigade force uncovered a bomb factory in the village of Anza, north of Jenin. Mortar shells, gunpowder, bomb components, cellular telephones, pesticides and other related items were uncovered.

Elsewhere, security forces remain on a level III alert across the country – taking extra measures to prevent terror attacks. An IDF operation in Ramallah prevented a suicide bombing attack planned for Jerusalem on Saturday night.

Intelligence officials are reporting over 50 terror warnings throughout the country.

Chief-of-Staff, Lt. Gen. Moshe Yaalon said this morning that it is possible that the recent intensification in terror attacks against Israelis could be related to talk about an impending withdrawal from Gaza.




It should be no surprise that the God who oversaw the first Purim should be watching over His chosen people this Purim also. It is not that these Islamic Arab Palestinians are working with junkyard engineers and equipment. They are given the very best training, and materials that Arab oil money can buy. Imagine going for a ride in your new Cadillac or Mercedes, and the doors and wheels fall off! That is how these murderers of Jewish woman and children must be feeling. It is not that God has given this generation of Jews a feather bed, but many Jews in Israel are rejoicing at the incontrovertible proof that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is in control. The main Stream Christian Church is looking at the Passion of Christ as it's great sign of God being in control of the USA this Purim. A movie coming from the greatest pornography culture mankind has ever known. A Roman Catholic emotional appeal reviving the passions of the faithful reminding them of a false theology that the Holy Land belongs to them. The Kingdom they pray for every day is a Christian religious Kingdom, not a Jewish Kingdom. They teach every day that the God of their Bible rejected the Jews forever. Their theology is in crises because Purim is being celebrated by the Jews of the Holy Land this year, and Christian orthodox influence over the Promised Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount is nonexistent. The reality of where God's hand is being manifested today is clear to all, but the religious blind.

There is a reason why the Evangelical Church of this generation has so completely embraced this new Hollywood style of evangelization through the Roman Catholic Christ of Mel Gibson (the only Christ he knows). The unity was long ago established when Billy Graham embraced the Catholic Church, and agreed to channel all inquiries of Catholic background to phony lip service priests. These are priests of the same priesthood that the whole world now knows is absolutely corrupted by homosexual pedophiles. It is no secret that Evangelicals have had this arrangement with the Catholics for an entire generation now. The popular Charismatic takeover of main stream Christianity which this generation has produced has been grounded in this same alliance. A Roman Catholic Priest can flip his beads, and pray to Mother Mary one day. Then appear on the 700 Club speaking in the phony Charismatic tongues the next. It is all acceptable because the emotional signs this generation of Christians consider proof of blessings are being manifested.

This generation is ready to experience the rapture where the wheat must be separated from the tares (or maybe the popcorn) of Apostate Christianity. Main stream Christianity will go on convinced they are being blessed while the real blessings will be taking place in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. Dispensational change will be God's way of correcting what careless hearts have produced. This generation of passionate Christians have finally met the criteria of the Laodicean Church!

Rev 3:17

17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

"To whom should God be delighted to honor in this generation more then me said the Christian in his heart, but God said in the Bible I will honor the Jew in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount!" See Esther 6:6 & 6:10 at top of page!



Last Church of the Church Age

Rev 3:14-22

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

'The Passion' Climbs Past $200 Million in Second Weekend

Gay Bishop Takes Over Episcopal Diocese

CONCORD, N.H. — With three mighty thumps on the church door Sunday, V. Gene Robinson (search) knocked and was welcomed into St. Paul's sanctuary (search), where he officially became the Episcopal Church's first openly gay bishop.

PA goes to Security Council against Israel

A Palestinian spokesman said Sunday the Palestinians will call for a U.N. Security Council meeting to discuss Israeli militarism in Gaza.

Nabil Abu Rudeineh, a top aide to Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, told reporters an urgent meeting would be requested to discuss Israeli Army massacres following an Israeli incursion into central Gaza that killed about 14 people.

He said the Palestinian leadership would join with leaders of Arab countries and non-aligned nations in asking the Security Council to impose sanctions on Israel.

This series of Israeli aggressions is aimed not only at foiling peace efforts, but also at dragging the whole region into great danger by constructing the separation wall and carrying out killings, Abu Rudeineh said.



Lo, which Christ is the Biblical Christ? The choices before this generation are legion. The Bible says the real Christ is going to come again. He is coming to the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and will sit on His Throne in the last Jewish Temple to be built on the Temple Mount. It makes sense to be watching the Holy Land for the answer to which Christ is the Biblical Christ.

There are many Christs being presented to this generation to whom they are being invited to ask into their heart. There is the broad minded liberal Christ who winks at the murder of babies in the womb. There is the Roman Catholic Christ who is so aloof that the faithful must go to Mother Mary, or a legion of authorized Saints for prayer. He is the Christ of the mystics who are convinced their statues can shed tears, and their perverted homosexual pedophile priests can literally turn bread and wine into the flesh and blood of their Christ. The Episcopal Church defies the reality of the homosexual problems in the Roman Catholic priesthood, and willingly follows their own similar rendition of another homosexually permissive Christ. The term "born again" has been hijacked by all the false Christs to such an extent that the Biblical Christ has been minimized into obscurity. The great Apostate Whore grows unabated during this generation of lukewarm Christian hearts.

It is in Israel where the Biblical Christ abode that the world is being turned upside-down once again. The God of the Bible is drawing the whole world into the conflict. The King of the Jews is coming again. He is coming to the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. He is none other then the only Biblical Christ! A price will be exacted on this world of apathy. That price will be Biblical righteousness with absolute judgment measured out to all the phony false religionists! The great oaks, and lavish ritual gardens of the world religions will be consumed, and all the other rebellious sinners with the Coming Kingdom of the only true Jewish King and Messiah! The Biblical Christ!



Isa 1:27-31

Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.

28 And the
destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed.

For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen.

30 For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth, and as a garden that hath no water.

31 And
the strong shall be as tow, and the maker of it as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them.

There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.


PM Sharon Trying To Rush The Withdrawal
16:47 Mar 10, '04 / 17 Adar 5764

While the right-wing parties say they will stymie the disengagement plan in the Cabinet, Ariel Sharon continues efforts to turn the program into "facts on the ground." Journalist David Bedein of Israel Resource News Agency reports, based on "highly placed sources in the US Defense Department," that Sharon has informed the U.S. government that he intends to implement the retreat from Gush Katif as of May 1, 2004.

Defense Minister Sha'ul Mofaz is due to meet with US Secretary of State Colin Powell in Washington today. Tomorrow, three US envoys will arrive in Israel to hear further details about the disengagement plan from Prime Minister Sharon.

Many countries have been brought into the circle of those supporting the pullback in one form or another. Jordan, Egypt, and France have lately expressed various measures of support for an Israeli retreat from Gaza. Close to 8,000 Jews live in close to 20 communities in Gaza.

A report prepared by the US Joint Chiefs of Staff after the Six Day War concluded that for self-defense reasons, Israel should retain the entire Gaza Strip, which "serves as a salient for introduction of Arab subversion and terrorism." "Subsequent US security assessments since then have supported the same conclusion," writes Dr. Menachem Kovacs of Montgomery College in Maryland, "as have independent Israeli assessments - including then-IDF Chief of Staff Ehud Barak, who said in 1993, 'The 1967 Joint Chiefs of Staff memorandum is still applicable ... If Israel has to retake the territories proposed to be given up, we cannot do it without tremendous casualties.'"

Prime Minister Sharon himself said in 2002 that "evacuating Netzarim [in Jewish Gaza] will only encourage terrorism and increase the pressure upon us."



The last major defeat of the Jews was by Titus of Rome as represented by the above reproduction of his triumphal entry desecrating the holy objects from the Second Jewish Temple. It proved to be another gentile victory over a corrupted Jewish government. The Jews have miraculously returned to the Holy Land after almost 2000 years of humiliation for their sinfulness. Now, another corrupted government is set on giving the gentiles another victory before the Nation has a chance to humble themselves before the God of the Bible. An Islamic Arab Palestinian State forever planted in the Holy Land is what the secular US and Israeli governments are intent on producing. This plan can only be accomplished by ejecting over 250,000 independent fundamental Jewish settlers from their homes in Yesha. The plan is to start with 8,000 Jews from the Gaza. It will conclude when every settler has been ejected so the Land can be given to the Islamic Arabs. This plan is the absolute opposite of what God has said is His plan for peace not just for the Holy Land, but for the entire world.

There is only one peace plan approved by the God of the Bible. It involves building the last Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount for the return of the Prince of Peace! All other peace plans are dead before they can roll off the lips of the secular politicians. All secular governments whether that of tiny Israel, or great as the gentile giant United States are in direct defiance of the God of the Bible with any other future plan for the Holy Land. They are but historical dust in His eyes. Oh how the mighty have fallen when they defied the God of all creation!

It is the God of the Bible who brought the Jews of this generation back to the Holy Land. It is the God of the Bible who created this conflict, and it will be the God of the Bible who will bring it to a successful victorious conclusion. The only question is on what side are you? Apathy on the part of "born again" Christians is why this lukewarm generation is ready to be taken out at the rapture. They haven't a clue where to stand in these crucial days of dispensational change. They run to the money changers of this generation for comfort, and get only false direction. The seek emotional highs rather then the cold truth of reality. They desire the mystics on television to give them false hopes, and die from the diseases they were told have been healed. It is a fickle hot nor cold religion that real Christians must now step aside. Biblical righteousness (right thinking) must make a come back to planet earth. Dispensational change is how the God of the Bible intends to accomplish such a wonderment.



The Biblical End of Gentile Influence Over Palestina

Ex 15:9-14

The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.
10 Thou didst blow with thy wind,
the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.
Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?
Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them.
Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation.
The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina.


Friday - March 12, 2004

Ps 74:1-2

why doth thine anger smoke against the sheep of thy pasture?

Remember thy congregation, which thou hast purchased of old; the rod of thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed; this mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt.


Waqf is Forced to Remove Illegal Wall - but Structure Remains
13:10 Mar 11, '04 / 18 Adar 5764

"How long will we have to serve as watchdogs for the Temple Mount?" So asked/pleaded this morning Dr. Eilat Mazar, an archaeologist member of the Committee to Preserve the Temple Mount Antiquities. The efforts of her committee met with partial success this morning, but, as she told Arutz-7 today, "It's not our job to patrol the Temple Mount, as we've done for the last three and a half years, and report on all the illegal activities of the Waqf. The authorities - whether it be the police, the government, the Jerusalem municipality, and even the Antiquities Authority - are simply not doing their job."

Today's incident concerns a concrete structure and a wall around it that the Waqf constructed illegally just to the south of the Temple Mount. Dr. Mazar says that the Waqf is continuing its program of "turning the entire Temple Mount compound into a large mosque, with absolutely no Jewish, Christian or other presence there. The archaeology there absolutely does not interest them; they merely want to cover up all signs of Jewish history there. The wall they built there in just a few hours this week was designed to hide the beautiful Herodian walls at the majestic south-east corner of the Temple Mount, and erase all vestiges of Jewish presence."

Waqf workers in fact removed the wall this morning - but Dr. Mazar says that the struggle is not over: "Behind the wall stands a concrete structure, which they have not removed, but which is equally illegal - and it also must be taken down."




The God of the Bible should not be too interested in what is presently happening on the Temple Mount in relation to preserving the past. God has revealed in the Bible that an entirely new structure will be built there in conjunction with the future. Everything must be cleared away to make room for Ezekiel's Temple. There are no remains of the First Temple built by Solomon. It was a corrupted Temple permissively destroyed by the Babylonians. Ezra used the old foundations, but Herod the Great expanded the Second Temple Mount to a new splendor that left nothing of Solomon's Temple for archeologists to find. Remains of the Second Temple permissively destroyed by the Romans are still visible, but the Moslem Mosques dominate the site today. Ezekiel's Temple yet to be built is the last Jewish Temple. It will be the greatest Temple of all. It will consume the present Temple Mount plus. New foundations must be laid greater then any of the past. A new Temple, and Temple Mount area is what the God of the Bible has planned. The past Temple Mount will become meaningless when God brings in the next dispensation.

There is no place for Islam, or any of the other false religions of men. Christianity and Judaism will merge in Ezekiel's Temple. It will be something the world has never seen. It will be a new Judaism geared for a new Jewish Temple. It will be Christ centered, but not Christianity as is understood today. It will be something new with an all new foundation. Two Jewish Witnesses who never leave Jerusalem, and 144,000 Jews from all over Israel and Yesha representing the 12 tribes will be that foundation. The Old Testament will merge with the New as this foundation is laid down. There will be no need for a Newer Testament for this new dispensation. The Old Testament merged with the New Testament in new ways beyond present understanding will be sufficient for all correct doctrine of this coming dispensation.

This Islamic Arab Palestinian desecration of Jewish artifacts is horrendous, but it is nothing new. It is just another nail in their coffin that will soon be cast onto the dung pile of history. A dung pile filled with mightier nations then them who also thought they could destroy the apple of God's eye.



Zech 2:8-12

8 For thus saith the
LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.

9 For, behold, I will shake mine hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants: and ye shall know that
the LORD of hosts hath sent me.

Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD.

And many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto thee.

And the LORD shall inherit Judah his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again.

Al Qaeda Ties to Spain

MADRID, Spain  — Just months ago, a taped threat thought to be from Usama bin Laden (search) included Spain among countries that could be attacked "at the appropriate time and place."

After Thursday's train bombings in Madrid (search), the government quickly blamed the Basque separatist group ETA (search). But later the interior minister said Islamic terrorism was not ruled out.

Bin Laden's warning was contained in an audiotape in October that the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (search) determined was probably authentic.

Spanish and other anti-terrorism officials say Spain was an important European center for Al Qaeda activity before the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks in the United States.

Spanish Judge Baltasar Garzon believes that Spain, along with Germany, was an important staging ground for the hijackings. Lead suicide pilot Mohamed Atta visited Spain twice in 2001, including a trip that July which Garzon says was called to discuss last-minute details with other senior plotters.

Last September, Garzon indicted bin Laden and nine other terror suspects over the Sept. 11 attacks. Three were alleged to be members of a Spain-based terror cell. Garzon charged 25 other men with belonging to Al Qaeda.

More than 40 Al Qaeda suspects have been arrested in Spain since the attacks, although many have been released for lack of evidence. Tayssir Alouni, a reporter for pan-Arab television channel Al-Jazeera who was arrested last September on charges of belonging to Al Qaeda, also has been released on bail.

In Spain, there are fears that Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar's staunch support of the U.S.-led war in Iraq has made the country a target for Islamic terrorists. Aznar has sent 1,300 troops to Iraq, even though most Spaniards opposed the war.

The first official mention of a possible Islamic angle to Thursday's attacks came when Interior Minister Angel Acebes said that police had found detonators and an Arabic-language audiotape with Quranic verses in a van in a town outside Madrid.

ETA, the separatist group that has claimed responsibility for more than 800 deaths in its decades-long campaign of assassinations and bombings for an independent Basque homeland, remains the "main line of investigation," Acebes said.

But with the van find "all kinds of lines investigation open up," he said. "Because of this, I have just given instructions to the security forces not to rule out any line."



There are ties to Spain other then Al Qaeda. The Bible says in the latter years Spain (Tarshish) will be looking on at the Last Jihad invasion of Israel along with Sheba and Dedan of Africa. The merchants of Spain inquire of the Islamic hordes if they have come to the Holy Land to take a spoil? Or, to take a prey? The question is left unanswered though the pillage of the Jews of Israel seems a foregone conclusion. The answer to me appears to be both for spoil and prey. The hate of Islam for Jewish blood will be too great to just pillage, or just teach them a lesson. The intent will be to hunt down every Jew, and leave not one alive. Not one man, woman, or child will be exempted from the intended carnage. Being Jewish will be the only requirement for a death sentence in that day. That kind of hate is already evident in the Islamic world. This generation of Islam seems more then capable of producing such animalistic blood lust against the Jews.

These murderers of innocent Spanish civilians have shocked the world once again into just how vicious the terrorist movements can be. We may never know if these were Christian, or Moslem terrorists at work? But, the animalistic hate of this generation can't be denied. The Islamic hate for Jews in this generation likewise can't be denied. A world on the way to Armageddon is how the Bible describes the ending of this present dispensation. It is a statement that should be compared to this generation. Wise speculation should be able to make the right conclusion as to where in God's timetable we are?



Rev 16:16-21

16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue
17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came
a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.
18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

Fatah and Hamas begin talks on pullout

13 March 2004


GAZA - Palestinian President Yasser Arafat's Fatah faction and the militant group Hamas have held talks on the future of the Gaza Strip after an Israeli withdrawal, a senior Fatah official said yesterday.

"We have discussed the internal situation and ways to stop chaos and maintain public order, and we also discussed issues pertaining to the future," Samir Al Mashharawi, a Fatah negotiator, said about the meeting held on Wednesday.

"We talked about the possibility of Hamas participation in the Palestinian Authority after the withdrawal, the future of resistance from the Gaza Strip, the fate of the West Bank and a number of political issues at the core of Palestinian concern."

The talks were their first since Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon recently proposed evacuating almost all the 21 Jewish settlements in Gaza if a US-backed peace 'roadmap' fails.

Palestinians fear he would then annex parts of the West Bank, denying them land they seek for a state.

Some Palestinian officials, including Mashharawi, said messages conveyed through Egyptian officials suggested Israel planned a full pullout from Gaza, where 7,500 settlers and 1.3 million Palestinians live. Militant factions, including Hamas and the less influential Islamic Jihad, have said an Israeli withdrawal from the Gaza Strip would be a victory for what they call their resistance to occupation.

Hamas has been at the forefront of attacks, including dozens of suicide bombings, that have killed hundreds of Israelis since Palestinians began their uprising against Israeli occupation in September 2000. The group is dedicated to the destruction of the Jewish state and rejects interim peace deals Arafat made with it. 



It could not be more clear. This peace plan of the secular Israeli government will be a great victory for the terrorists! The terrorists openly formulate their plans for control once the IDF withdraws from the Gaza. These are the murderers of the Jewish civilian population that targets woman and children as their favorite quarry. Their concept of maintaining public order is to supply gullible Islamic Arab suicide bombers who will follow their orders. Their method of governing is extortion and murder of their own brothers for their own self interests. They are animals of the worst sort. The whole world knows this as truth, but because the Jews are their ultimate victims it is thought to be a reasonable plan. The secular Jews have become so frustrated that they are turning to Sharon rather then the God of their fathers. A terrible lesson is in the offering should Sharon (who is not a Joshua) accomplish his intentions. Many hope Sharon is sly as a fox, and will somehow turn this into a Jewish victory. Possibly the annexing of the entire West Bank, but it is only hopeful thinking without one iota of indication from Sharon himself. Reality points more to Satan having his greatest dreams come true. These are sad days for the faithful, but hard lessons must be taught before the God of the Bible acts.

I'm reminded of all the hard lessons I had to learn before the Lord Jesus Christ came into my heart. Today, the Jewish people are being prepared. Their redemption draweth nigh. Their hearts are about to be changed by the only great God of the Bible. Hard times are still ahead before that great day of the Messiah/King's appearance. There is great purpose in all God is allowing the Jews of Israel to experience. The final chapter for this generation of Israelis is yet to be written!



Ezek 11:19-21

19 And
I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:

20 T
hat they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.

But as for them whose heart walketh after the heart of their detestable things and their abominations, I will recompense their way upon their own heads, saith the Lord GOD.

US Sets 5 Conditions for Disengagement Plan
11:41 Mar 14, '04 / 21 Adar 5764

After almost six weeks of Israeli attempts to arrange a meeting for Prime Minister Sharon with U.S. President George Bush, it appears that Bush is finally ready to do so. Sharon wishes to obtain American endorsement for the unilateral withdrawal plan he presented on February 2, but the Bush Administration has not been forthcoming. Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom announced last night that a meeting has been set in principle for March 29, but that the Americans have set five major conditions for their acceptance of Sharon's plan. Several of them are unacceptable to top Likud ministers. The five conditions are:

    The plan must not replace the US Road Map plan;

    the US will not bear the costs of evacuating and resettling the nearly 8,000 residents;

    the expelled residents must not be relocated in Judea and Samaria;

    the evacuation must be not only of civilians but of all military residents;

    and Israel must not annex any areas of Judea and Samaria.

The Americans have also asked that the withdrawal be carried out only after the US elections almost eight months from now.

A forum of advisors convened by President Bush at the end of last week determines that the disengagement has "historic potential" but also has dangers. They also concluded that it is important to the Bush Administration that the planned withdrawal not appear as a surrender to terrorism.

The first meeting between Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and PA leader Ahmed Qureia (Abu Ala) is scheduled for Tuesday. Their senior aides are scheduled to meet today, once again, to lay the groundwork for the meeting.



Imagine the Pharaoh of Egypt putting similar restrictions on Joshua, and the God of the Bible at the first entrance of the Jews into the Holy Land? History already recognizes that Pharaoh as a fool for resisting God as long as he did, but such additional resistance would have made him an even greater fool. This would not be the first time a world leader of a mighty nation lost everything because he thought he needed to straighten out the God who placed the Jews in the Holy Land. Great gentile nations have often pushed their will where gentiles dare not tread.  Where are the pyramid building Egyptians? Where are the Assyrians? Where are the Babylonians? Where are the Romans? Where are the Nazis? Yet, here come the Jews again!

I have often been asked where is the United States of America in prophecy. My answer has always been consistent that The USA would be part of the ten Western nations that give the antichrist his power. It makes sense that after the rapture the great Christian heritage of America will be meaningless to those left behind. What is sad is those of today who should know better seem to know nothing. A lukewarm Church gives no Biblical direction to our elected leaders. It is sad when prominent Christians are willingly ignorant of what God is doing in the Holy Land with this generation. They actually support efforts to block what God has said He will do in the Bible, and would forestall the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is always sad when the best we have think they have a better way then what God has so clearly already revealed. Today, we have a better way to evangelize the world with the Passion. We have a better peace plan then the God of the Bible for the Holy Land. We have an Evangelical spirit of unity with the apostates so that no one knows who is saved anymore? We have better theology by willingly ignoring Bible doctrine which is meant to divide out the phony from the truth. Today, we are all brothers tolerant of all apostasy. It is a sad day in which we live. I doubt much sweet savor is whiffing up to God Almighty from this American style of Christianity? It seems to be on the road to whoredom, and the nations are going to stab this apostate system left behind after the rapture in the back. The gentile world of religions, and governments will be united  in their hate for the Jews. The character this hate produces always results in backstabbing as each looks out for their self-interests. The antichrist at the end will backstab all who gave him power by leading the entire world to Armageddon.

I watch the Western world of nations, and their alliances. The US will be one of ten, and the antichrist will backstab three leaving seven. He will assume the combined power of the three, and become the eighth. The Bible says all these kings give their power to him. He becomes leader of the Western world, and controls the entire world with Western military, financial, and technical power. The war with the sacrificed lamb of Jewish Old Testament theology will be the focus of gentile world hate. The altar of Ezekiel's Temple will be the most hated place on the planet.



Rev 17:3-18

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

15 And when he had
made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;

Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.

Hollywood Rethinking Films of Faith After 'Passion'



LOS ANGELES, March 14 — As the overwhelming success of "The Passion of the Christ" reverberates through Hollywood, producers and studio executives are asking whether the movie industry has been neglecting large segments of the American audience eager for more openly religious fare.

During the weekend the film took in another $31.6 million, increasing the total box office to $264 million in nearly three weeks, according to Exhibitor Relations, which tracks ticket sales.

Unlike many blockbusters, the movie has not dropped precipitously soon after a huge opening weekend. It is expected to finish its domestic run taking in well over $300 million in box-office receipts, easily outstripping big-budget movies like "The Hulk" or any in the "Matrix" series.

That number will only swell when the film is released internationally, beginning in Europe and Latin America in the next few weeks. The foreign audience is expected to be huge. And 20th Century Fox is in negotiations to distribute the DVD and videocassette, which is also expected to be immensely profitable.

"You can't ignore those numbers," said Mark Johnson, a veteran film producer. "You can't say it's just a fluke. There's something to be read here."

The movie's box-office success has been chewed over in studio staff meetings and at pricey watering holes all over Hollywood, echoed in interviews with numerous executives in the last week. In marketing departments the film is regarded as pure genius; its director, Mel Gibson, is credited with stoking a controversy that yanked the film from the margins of the culture to center stage, presenting it as a must-see.

There is little doubt at the studios that the movie will affect decision making in the short and the long term. Some predict, as one result, a wave of New Testament-themed movies or more religious films in general.

"Will there really be scriptural pictures — Old Testament, New Testament?" asked Peter Guber, a producer who formerly ran Sony Pictures Entertainment. "The answer seemingly is probably so."



The God of the Bible well knew the last generation of this present Church age would be rich, and feel in need of nothing. I have heard it said this unholy alliance with the pornography capital of the world is just another tool to be used for evangelism? Ezekiel faced a similar situation in his day. The Temple priests decorated the inside walls of the Temple with all manner of pagan gods to show the world how broadminded they assumed the God of the Bible could be.  The result was the Glory of God  left that Temple, and not long after the Jews lost sovereignty over the Holy Land. They had broken their covenant with the exclusive and jealous God of the Bible. They should have known better, but visions of compromised religious power blinded them to the truth.

Evangelicals are watering at the mouth with how they can jump on this Hollywood bandwagon of religious revival. Visions of packing the pews with the converts coming from this newest evangelistic revival are dancing like sugar plums in their heads. It matters not that the God of the Bible is a holy God, and also very jealous of His holiness. Little thought is given to what God thinks about unholy alliances with the pornographers who see only the money to be made using the Old and New Testaments. The lesson of "The Passion" is one of the modern money changers using the things of God for profit. The drooling Evangelicals can only expect a hard lesson coming out of this new Hollywood evangelization bandwagon. I expect the literal Bible will be abandoned quickly on the cutting room floor. Remakes of the Nun's Story, and Father Flanagan's Boy's Town will probably come first. I await the grand future spectacular about Mother Teresa destine surly to blockbuster proportions.

Stirring emotional religious fervor will be the new art for which the Hollywood crowd will strive. The God of the Bible will be presented as the same broadminded god of the priests of Ezekiel's day. The scripts will be written in a way as to not offend any except those who stand on the literal Bible. The pagans will feel comfortable within the walls of this expanding style of apostate Christianity. The pews will be filled, but the loss of holiness will be the price.



The Glory Leaves - But Will Return to Future Temple

Leaves First Temple

Ezek 10:19

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

Ezek 11:22-23

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

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

Returns to Ezekiel's Future Temple

Ezek 43:2

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

Ezek 43:4-7

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

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

6 And
I heard him speaking unto me out of the house; and the man stood by me.

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

Ezek 44:4-9

4 Then brought he me the way of the north gate before the house: and I looked, and, behold, the
glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD: and I fell upon my face.
5 And the LORD said unto me, Son of man, mark well, and behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears all that I say unto thee
concerning all the ordinances of the house of the LORD, and all the laws thereof; and mark well the entering in of the house, with every going forth of the sanctuary.
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
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.
8 And ye have not kept the
charge of mine holy things: but ye have set keepers of my charge in my sanctuary for yourselves.
9 Thus saith the Lord GOD;
No stranger, uncircumcised in heart, nor uncircumcised in flesh, shall enter into my sanctuary, of any stranger that is among the children of Israel.

Security sources: Tanzim intended to detonate explosives child carried

By Arnon Regular and Yuval Yoaz, Haaretz Correspondents

The Tanzim militant group intended to detonate by remote control an explosive belt carried by a 10-year-old Palestinian boy after he was caught Monday by Israel Defense Forces soldiers, Israeli security sources believe.

The boy was aprehended while trying to pass a Nablus checkpoint with bags containing the explosives.

"Ten-year-old Abdullah works at the checkpoint transporting luggage from one side to the other," the officer, who identified himself only as Lieutenant-Colonel Guy, told Reuters.

"[Someone] asked him to carry through a bag...and left," the officer said. "[The boy] just wanted to make money. We will release him. He's just a poor kid." The boy said he was offered a large sum of money to transfer the bags, and he was released after it became clear that he was not aware that the bags he was carrying contained explosives.

The officer said a military policewoman at the checkpoint spotted wires protruding from the bag and stopped Abdullah.

"The policewoman prevented a suicide attack [in Israel]," the colonel said. He said the explosive belt was also packed with nuts and bolts, which militants use to make bombs deadlier. It was also connected to a cellular telephone.

Army demolition experts detonated the device in a controlled blast. The colonel said the device contained seven to 10 kilograms of explosives.




I watched on the news as the beautiful Israeli policewoman was interviewed. The bomb was rigged with a remote telephone detonator, and as she inspected the package the boy was carrying the phone rang.  It was clear the terrorists intent was to kill both her and the boy in their foiled attempt to kill even more Jews. The detonator failed letting a little boy go home to his mother, and I suppose a young mother able to go home to her young children. The hand of the God of the Bible can be observed for those willing to look. The most sophisticated equipment the computer age can muster is still subject to the God of the Bible. I'm sure God could foil every attempt at terror, but it is not a feather bed that He promised this world of sin. Reality teaches that terrible things happen as a result of sin. The worst part of sin is the innocent victims that are always drawn into the sins of others. Sin has never been a private matter. There are always innocent victims. Abortion is a prime example.

The Jews are retaliating as I write. The helicopters are firing at known terrorist locations. These terrorists hide among the civilian populations for this very reason. Innocents are bound to become victims. This will be used for propaganda to make certain Israeli innocents pay the price.

The world closes on the day when God will be the aggressor. It will start in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount! There will be no innocents from His perspective. He has already said "all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" which settles forever any claims to innocents. What the God of the Bible does offer is grace to those willing to submit to His authority, His righteousness, and His Redeemer. Mercy ends when God judges. The only victim is God Himself who absorbed all the sin of evil generation after evil generation. That must all stop! That day is near because God is forcing the Jews of Israel on this evil generation. The Bible says the Jews will turn! A few gentiles will turn also, but this will be a movement mainly among the Jews of Israel who will be preparing to welcome the coming again Messiah/King. It all happens in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount!



Ps 4
4:1 To the chief Musician on Neg'-i-noth, A Psalm of David.
Hear me when I call,
O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame? how long will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah.
3 But know that
the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.
Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.
Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.
6 There be many that say,
Who will shew us any good? LORD, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.
Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased.
I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.

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

Egypt, Iran developing satellite plans

By Amnon Barzilai, Haaretz Correspondent

Egypt is developing a reconnaissance satellite that will be operative within one to two years, according to a recent report by the space news website SpaceDaily.Com. The development of an Iranian satellite project is also at an advanced stage.

Details about the Iranian satellite program, being conducted under academic auspices, were revealed last week in a lecture to the members of the Israeli Space Society by Major M. of the Israel Air Force department of space technology. Major M. said that the Iranian satellite will have launch capability within less than a year, and emphasized the great danger of such a program.

The Egyptian satellite project is being implemented by the Scientific Research Ministry. Egyptian officials noted that the project has been financially assisted by western countries, and added that the satellite is for civilian research purposes. The officials however also said that that the project is intended as a response to Israel's military reconnaissance satellite, Ofeq. UPI quoted officials in Cairo who stated that Egypt and other countries such as Saudi Arabia, were challenging Israel's space superiority.

"Iran and Egypt's space plans show us the great efforts being invested in space by Arab states," Tal Inbar, vice president of the Israeli Space Society, said. "The Egyptian plan to launch its own reconnaissance satellite is a sign that Israel's monopoly as the only Middle Eastern country in space is over. However the real danger is that Iran could launch a satellite within a year. Israel must advance its own space capabilities in order to preserve its qualitative edge in case an anti-satellite weapon is developed by a hostile nation."



The technology of this computer age is rushing the world toward Armageddon. The world came close to a technological crises with the super weapons of the Nazis. The war ended with little time to spare before the technology of Hitler would have changed the tide. Today, computers make that technology available to Arab countries looking for that little edge needed to defeat Israel. The Arabs would not stop as Israel has in all their wars, but would be merciless in their blood lust for Jews. Little Israel must always be a few steps ahead, or there will be no Israel. God will never allow that to happen. I only wonder how long God will extend the years before He steps in directly? The Two witnesses of Revelation 11 are recorded as manifesting miraculous powers in stopping anyone, or any country from doing harm to their ministry. There is no indication they ever leave Jerusalem throughout their ministry which lasts for the first 3-1/2 years of the 7-year Great Tribulation. The effect of their ministry however has world wide effects. They clearly are not hampered by the technology of their enemies.

The power of God will challenge the power of technology, and it will be acknowledged as no contest! The world will hate the righteousness of these Two Witnesses, and the 144,000 Jews from every tribe who join them. I believe their prophecy and ministry will be the building of Ezekiel's Temple. The world will so hate these Jews that when the antichrist is allowed to kill them a holiday is proclaimed around the world that will out do any secular Christmas celebration as the world has ever known. The inability of any gentile nation no matter how powerful to influence, or stop them will drive frustration to full blown hate. I'm convinced that when they fulfill the prophecy of building Ezekiel's Temple their ministry will be over. The antichrist kills them, and drives the 144,000 with all their converts into the wilderness. The years of a forced peace by the Witnesses for Israel ends, and the 3-1/2 years of Jacob's trouble begin.  The Temple is desecrated. The antichrist sits on the Throne that was put in the Temple for the coming Christ/Messiah/King. At the end of the Great Tribulation the antichrist will lead a world of hate to Armageddon. The Jews will return to Jerusalem for one final revival in those last days of turmoil as the nations gather. They will cleanse the Temple of the desecration by the antichrist who withdraws from Jerusalem as the nations gather. The time for Christ's return, and the Kingdom age to begin arrives. It will be a most glorious day that will come with no time left to spare. It will be like the cavalry coming in the nick of time. The timing of the Lord will be just perfect.

Read about the Second Woe



Rev 11:1-15
11:1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and
measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for
it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
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, f
ire 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.
7 And when they shall have
finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
8 And their
dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
9 And they of the
people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
10 And t
hey that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and t
hey stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them,
Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
14 The
second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.
15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying,
The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

Recently Discovered Near-Earth Asteroid Makes Record-breaking Approach to Earth

Steven R. Chesley
Paul W. Chodas
NASA's Near Earth Object Program Office
Wednesday, March 17, 2004

A small near-Earth asteroid (NEA), discovered Monday night by the NASA-funded LINEAR asteroid survey, will make the closest approach to Earth ever recorded. There is no danger of a collision with the Earth during this encounter.

The object, designated 2004 FH, is roughly 30 meters (100 feet) in diameter and will pass just 43,000 km (26,500 miles, or about 3.4 Earth diameters) above the Earth's surface on March 18th at 5:08 PM EST (2:08 PM PST, 22:08 UTC).

On average, objects about the size of 2004 FH pass within this distance roughly once every two years, but most of these small objects pass by undetected. This particular close approach is unusual only in the sense that scientists know about it. The fact that an object as small as asteroid 2004 FH has been discovered now is mostly a matter of perseverance by the LINEAR team, who are funded by NASA to search for larger kilometer-sized NEAs, but also routinely detect much smaller objects.

Asteroid 2004 FH's point of closest approach with the Earth will be over the South Atlantic Ocean. Using a good pair of binoculars, the object will be bright enough to be seen during this close approach from areas of Europe, Asia and most of the Southern Hemisphere.

Scientists look forward to the flyby as it will provide them an unprecedented opportunity to study a small NEA asteroid up close.

Want a shock? See number of recently recorded hazardous near earth orbit objects now that scientists decided to look for them! There are many, many more yet to be discovered.



Whew, it passed by the skin of our teeth, but it will be back. NASA has only just begun looking for these objects, and the results are alarming. Scientists once believed the billions year old solar system had long ago cleaned out the rubble. Now we find either the billions of years is wrong, or the rubble defies the laws of probability. This is not the first time science got it all wrong! Today we are suddenly confronted with the fact of how vulnerable the earth is to a massive outer space collision. What was recently promoted as a once in millions of year possibility now must be acknowledged as a skin of our teeth space ride through just a few thousands not millions of years. We could never have made the million years proposals, as science now must admit!

The protective hand of God should be acknowledged, but science has for the most part become the enemy. Evolution by chance over billions of years is the scientific answer to the complexity of life. The G-Nome project which took the greatest computers ever built to solve refuses to acknowledge a master programmer behind the evidence, but remain holding to blind chance over billions of years as the answer. The Bible says at the end 500-pound hailstones will fall from space, and then these scientist and supporters will finally acknowledge God. Their acknowledgement will be to blaspheme His name!

The God of the Bible is clear He will remove His hand of protection soon. An object yet to be discovered, but already named as wormwood is out there! Its orbit will not be near earth, but will be dead on collision.

My friend, are you ready for the Biblical future? The time may be right for you to personally read the Book of John, and receive the Biblical Christ presented there. I know of no other way to understand the soon coming future then to get saved. God will never reveal His purposes to His enemies. The only place to start is with Christ. All others are blind trails leading nowhere!


Rev 8:7-11

7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;

9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;

11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

Militia Sorry for Killing Arab in Jerusalem Attack

Sat Mar 20, 2004 09:17 AM ET

RAMALLAH, West Bank (Reuters) - A leader of a Palestinian militant group behind the drive-by killing of an Israeli jogger apologized on Saturday after the dead man was identified as an Israeli-Arab university student.

"The fighters thought he was a settler jogging in an area full of settlers. It was a mistake and we extend our apology to his family," a leader of the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, an armed group in President Yasser Arafat's Fatah faction, told Reuters.

Palestinian gunmen opened fire and killed the man on Friday night as he jogged in Jerusalem's French Hill district, near the city's Hebrew University. The al-Aqsa Brigades claimed the shooting in a statement released shortly afterwards.

On Saturday, the victim was identified as George Khoury, the son of prominent Israeli-Arab lawyer Elias Khoury. The 20-year-old was an economics student at Hebrew University. "We will consider him as a martyr like hundreds of Palestinians killed by Israeli occupation forces," the al-Aqsa brigades leader said, adding that the group would send a letter of apology to Khoury's family. It was the second time a member of the Khoury family had died in an attack by Palestinian militants. Elias Khoury told Israel Radio in an interview that his father was among 14 people killed in a bomb attack in central Jerusalem in 1975.

"I am against all violent attacks against innocent civilians whether it be against Israeli civilians or Palestinian civilians. This must stop," Khoury told the radio.

Khoury, a well known activist for the Palestinian cause, has often represented Palestinian militants jailed by Israel.

The al-Aqsa brigades have killed scores of Israelis in shooting ambushes and suicide bombings since a Palestinian uprising began in September 2000 after peace talks stalled.

Fatah officials say the brigades have flouted the group's official line opposing suicide bombings and confining resistance to the West Bank and Gaza Strip, lands occupied by Israel in the 1967 Middle East war and where Palestinians want a future stat.


Sorry goes only so far, and in this case it falls far short of any reasonable explanation to the death of a 20-year University student. The hate of the Islamic Arab Palestinians has caused them to shoot off their own foot once again. The purpose was to indiscriminately kill a Jew, but it backfired! Now they say they are sorry, but not for their sin! They designate their poor victim as a martyr in an attempt to make it all right? This is the culture that the gentile "Road Map" would give their own State forever in the middle of the Holy Land? It makes about as much sense as the dead body of this 20-year old victim!

The eyes of the world are fixed on the Holy Land. What we see is not pretty. The apple of God's eye is to blame for everything. Even the indefensible murder of this young man is turned into martyrdom for the cause of terrorizing and torturing the Jews of Israel.

The judgment of God can't be far away. Hitler and the Nazis never reached their 1000 year goal of Arian rule, and the Islamic Arab Palestinians are soon to find their visions of grandeur coming to an end. The conflict over the Holy Land is unique to this generation. The God of the Bible has brought the Jews back a third miraculous time with purpose. Dispensational change is near. Wickedness shall be judged, and Biblical righteousness will be resurrected to prominence once more.  A new Kingdom Age dispensation is blooming, but wickedness must be dealt with first. Desolation and destruction is God's future plan for the wicked.

On which side are you? There are no helpless victims when judgment comes. The Bible has the only answer to wickedness and sin. The Biblical Jesus Christ is the ignored center of this present Church Age, and will be the center of the coming Kingdom Age. He alone solved  the issue of sin and judgment, but You must submit to His authority before His sacrificial blood can be applied to your life.

Isa 51:19-23

19 These two things are come unto thee; who shall be sorry for thee? desolation, and destruction, and the famine, and the sword: by whom shall I comfort thee?

20 Thy sons have fainted, they lie at the head of all the streets, as a wild bull in a net: they are full of the fury of the LORD, the rebuke of thy God.

21 Therefore hear now this, thou afflicted, and drunken, but not with wine:

22 Thus saith thy Lord the LORD, and thy God that pleadeth the cause of his people, Behold, I have taken out of thine hand the cup of trembling, even the dregs of the cup of my fury; thou shalt no more drink it again:

23 But I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee; which have said to thy soul, Bow down, that we may go over: and thou hast laid thy body as the ground, and as the street, to them that went over.

Gaza faces hardline Islamic future as Arafat loses followers



AS ISRAEL prepares for a staged withdrawal from the Gaza Strip, there are growing fears that the area will come under the control of Islamic fundamentalist groups.

Such an outcome could have far-reaching implications for the Middle East, ending hopes of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The most powerful force in Gaza these days appears to be Hamas, the Islamic Resistance Movement, which opposes any negotiated peace settlement and whose charter calls for Israel’s total destruction in favour of a new country under Islamic rule.

The armed wing of Hamas has carried out frequent suicide bombings that have killed hundreds of Israelis and has risen in popularity to such an extent that it is now drawing members away from Palestinian President Yasser Arafat’s Fatah faction.

The spiritual leader and founder of Hamas, Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, has made it clear that the people of Gaza no longer regard Arafat and his organisation as the sole representatives of the Palestinians.

This week Hamas claimed another victory after successfully smuggling two suicide bombers out of Gaza and having them attack the strategic Israeli port of Ashdod.

It was the first successful attack of its kind in more than three years of fighting and resulted in the deaths of at least 11 Israelis.

The mission was jointly run with the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, an armed wing of Arafat’s Fatah faction - in recent months Hamas has shown an increasing ability to co-opt Fatah’s armed cells to work with Hamas’s military wing.

This trend has alarmed members of the Palestinian Cabinet, who have demanded that Arafat take charge of the situation.

Several ministers, including the Interior Minister, Hakam Balawi, said it was time to rein in the rebel Fatah groups because their attacks were simply leading to more Israeli military retaliation and increasing the suffering of ordinary Palestinians.

But Arafat, during a heated emergency meeting at his headquarters in the West Bank town of Ramallah last week, refused to intervene, saying he would never direct the Palestinian security forces to arrest members of Fatah.

The perception among many ordinary Palestinians is that senior officials in the Palestinian Authority and some Cabinet ministers have pocketed international donor money instead of using it to alleviate poverty.

Hamas, however, is revered among many of the poor in Gaza. As well as having an armed wing, Hamas runs charitable and welfare organisations that provide for the needy in one of the most crowded and impoverished areas in the world.


The Islamic Arab Palestinian cruel leadership is the only leadership their culture will allow. These Palestinians are finally recognizing how grossly Arafat raided the coffers. They expected him to steal because only this kind of character is vicious enough for them in their hate for the Jews, but he went far beyond stealing to out right pillaging of billions leaving nothing for relief of the people. He took it all, but a few crumbs. Hamas is just as vicious lusting for Jewish blood, but they at least do some charitable work for the people. It is a vain win for these Palestinians. They get to terrorize and torture the Jews, and maybe get a small piece of the pie supplied by the rich European gentiles along with their own Moslem brothers. Hamas rules by murder, and intimidation of the Palestinian people just like Arafat. The Hamas leaders look forward to the really big bucks that Arafat up to now has controlled. The Palestinian people know they will be exploited again. They just hope not to the extent as the Arafat regime has done. Their Allah is a very unfair god who encourages the poor to stay in subjection to the cruel for his glory and praise.

The God of the Bible condemns the cruel to hell. The God of the Bible condemns entire nations, and I assume cultures that forget the most basic things about holiness. The wicked leaders along with those who keep them in power have no mercy with the God of the Bible. In the Holy Land there is only one people that are chosen. God has brought them into the Promised Land this third time with the same purpose as all the others. To establish His Kingdom. This time the promised Jewish Kingdom will finally be established. Men and all their phony peace plans must not prevail. The heathen must be judged. The final victory must be exactly as the Bible says it will be. Christ must sit on the throne in Ezekiel's Temple as King of kings, and LORD of lords.

Friend, is He the King of kings, and LORD of lords in your heart? The heathen will be cast into hell for all eternity because they can't say yes to this simple question. Entire nations have been cast into hell already according to the Bible. It is your heart that God will judge with no regard of persons, religions, or cultures. What have you done with the salvation offered you through the already accepted sacrifice of the Biblical LORD Jesus Christ?

Ps 9:16-20

16 The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.

17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.

18 For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.

19 Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight.

20 Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.

Ps 2:1
2:1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?


Hamas leader killed in airstrike, prompts threats against Israel, U.S.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Israel killed Hamas founder Ahmed Yassin in a helicopter missile strike outside a Gaza City mosque Monday, prompting threats of unprecedented revenge by Palestinian militants against Israel and the United States.

Yassin was the most prominent Palestinian leader killed by Israel in more than three years of fighting, and his assassination was seen as a major escalation. (Related video: Graphic advisory: Israeli-Palestinian violence heats up)

In a spontaneous outpouring of rage and grief, tens of thousands of Palestinians took to the streets in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. A cloud of black smoke hung over Gaza City, as angry mourners burned tires in protest.

"Words cannot describe the emotion of anger and hate inside our hearts," said Hamas official Ismail Haniyeh, a close associate of Yassin.

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon called Yassin the "mastermind of Palestinian terror" and a "mass murderer who is among Israel's greatest enemies."

Sharon said Israel will press ahead with its war on terror, signaling more targeted attacks and raids. "The war against terror has not ended and will continue day after day, everywhere," he said.

EU leaders meet in wake off attack ... Sharon's risk may be costly ... Angered followers threaten retaliation ...  Over 150,000 Attend Arch Terrorist’s Funeral ... Hamas Vows “Revenge Attacks” ... Hamas Calling for Attacks against “Zionists” Around the World ...

[The heathen rage]


I'm an old Chicago boy, and remember the stories of Al Capone. He was a notorious gangster who terrorized the city with his bootlegger pals. They also played the same game of the Islamic terrorists in avoiding justice. Al Capone eventually died in prison, and today is only a bad memory to Chicago. Ahmed Yassin is now also a bad memory to all who anticipate the coming glorious Kingdom of God in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount.

The heathen are sure to rage as this leader of modern day heathenism has fallen. It is not just the Islamic Arab Palestinian heathens, but the European Union heathens who are also preparing for statements of outrage against the apple of God's eye. Terms like escalation are being tossed around.  The right time for the use of escalation was at the last bus bombing in Israel, or train bombing in Spain. We should even go back to 9/11 for a proper application of the term escalation! The heathen are not concerned with being proper. They just want to kill. Their lust after Jewish blood is intense, and they can only see the Jews as the cause of everything going bad for them. This is true ro the extent that God put the Jews back in their Promised Land! The God of the Bible is opposed to the heathen, and is working toward their ultimate destruction. God has brought the Jews back to the Holy Land this third miraculous time with that destruction in mind! It is no wonder that the heathen of today rage!

The US is also a target of rage because we more then any of the other gentiles uphold Israel. Where we get it all wrong is proposing an unbiblical "Road Map" peace plan that is heading for disaster. God's Biblical plan is for the coming Kingdom, not a heathen State in the middle of the Holy Land!! The heathen rage has a more narrow target at the Jewish independent fundamental settler movement. Even the heathen Jewish secular government rages against them. All the heathen recognize the settlers are the thorn preventing the "Road Map" from ever being implemented. However, the settler movement does provide an intriguing answer to God's Biblical plan for the future of the Holy Land. The source of 144,000 Jews living on the land of their ancient tribes.

The rage of the heathen has only just begun! The resulting wrath of the lamb is a terrible thing to behold. It will only be the blessed who find a peaceful end in this frightening Biblical future that is now upon us. Where have you placed your trust? The Bible says it can't be in people for they are destine to destruction. It can only be in Him! The risen LORD Jesus Christ who sacrificed Himself as the lamb of God for our sin so you and I can be saved!

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.

Ps 10:16

16 The LORD is King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his land.



Levy and Netanyahu Bidding To Lead Anti-Disengagement Forces
17:28 Mar 23, '04 / 1 Nisan 5764

If Netanyahu won't lead, then perhaps David Levy will - or maybe Netanyahu will, after all.

Finance Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has not taken as strong a stand against Prime Minister Sharon's unilateral withdrawal plan as had been hoped in the right-wing sector. He in fact was quoted as saying that others seem to want him to do the work for them. Netanyahu has set three conditions that, if fulfilled, would enable him to "positively consider supporting the withdrawal." He explained on Sunday to his fellow Likud ministers that the Prime Minister has already decided upon the withdrawal, and that what remains is for Israel to maximize its gains.

Given Netanyahu's apparent abandonment of the field, MK David Levy, a former three-time Foreign Minister, may be the one to take up the slack in leading the opposition to the withdrawal/expulsion. He plans to convene - tomorrow, in Tel Aviv - a large gathering of 17 Likud Party ministers and MKs who object to the withdrawal. Levy, who was defeated by Netanyahu almost a decade ago in a contest for the Likud leadership, called yesterday for Sharon to "disengage yourself from your disengagement plan." Levy further said that Sharon could instantly solve the Likud's coalition discipline problems if he would merely shelve these plans.

B'Sheva editor Emanuel Shilo wrote the following last week about David Levy:
"He's been [politically] eulogized ten times, and every time he comes back in from the cold. Even the sin of joining up with Ehud Barak has been forgiven him - because nothing matters: David Levy is a Likudnik at his very core, and is forgiven all. At present, from the heights of his political and diplomatic experience, David Levy is sounding one of the clearest voices against Sharon's plans. On the background of the fear and silence of the other ministers, this voice is heard even more strongly, and somewhat restores the prominent visibility he once had. If he continues to prove his relevance, his path to the Presidency will be paved - and who knows? After the comeback that Sharon made, anything's possible, and he could even become Prime Minister."


Looking to the politicians is an exercise in futility. David Levy is testing the waters. He is not expressing from his heart a conviction grounded in the Bible for the future of Israel. He is only looking for political popularity as do Netanyahu and Sharon. The Likud may be the conservative party in Israel, but they are still politicians first. The Labor party are the liberals who have already sold their souls to the devil. There just is not much hope for Israel's future from these crowds. The religious crowds are in the same barrel of Conservatism and liberalism. There is little hope there either. None have a clear Biblical vision of what God has planed for Israel's future. A totally new move must come to the Jews of Israel. A grass roots movement back to the literal Bible. God has already indicated that this movement is coming. However, God will start at the top, and work down. He says in Revelation that the movement starts with the foundational leadership of two Jews living in Jerusalem. They are quickly joined by 144,000 more Jews from each of the twelve tribes of Israel's past. The Bible says somehow the tribal divisions are restored? There are over 250,000 independent fundamental Jewish settlers living on those tribal lands today. They may not be there tomorrow if the politicians have their way. They certainly will not be there if that land is given to the heathen Islamic Arab Palestinians! I know God can work around even that worst case scenario, but it seems He placed the settlers in the right place at the right time already? It should be the Palestinians who are required to move out of the way for what God is planning in the Holy Land!

The heathen are raging in defiance of what God is doing. The gentile world wants only to cater, and appease the raging bull. It is the wrong plan at the wrong time. The Jewish politicians want to cater, and appease the gentile controlled world. It also is the wrong plan at the wrong time. Only in the God of the Bible can we rest with an assured future. The Bible says Jerusalem is the only city God will protect. The place where His holy tabernacle must again be raised. The heathen will rage in resistance, but the God of Jacob, the LORD of hosts, will be the victor. There is a refuge that can be found in the LORD of hosts, the God of Jacob. He is the coming again King of the Jews. Have you found that refuge in the time of your trouble? He waits patiently for you to call Him. It is His strength that will overcome the world. It is only His blood that can wash away our sin. Won't you come?


Psalms 46

46:1 To the chief Musician for the sons of Ko'-rah, A Song upon Al'-a-moth.
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
3 Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
4 There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.
5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.
6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.
7 The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
8 Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth.
9 He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.
10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
11 The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

Israelis Stop Teen Wearing Bomb Vest

Mar 24, 3:03 PM (ET)


HAWARA CHECKPOINT, West Bank (AP) - A 16-year-old Palestinian with a suicide bomb vest strapped to his body was caught at a crowded West Bank checkpoint Wednesday, setting off a tense encounter with Israeli soldiers whom the army said he was sent to kill.

The soldiers, taking cover behind concrete barriers, sent a yellow army robot to bring scissors to the teenager so he could cut off the vest. They then made him strip to his underwear to ensure he was unarmed before detaining him.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the latest in a series of foiled attacks on Israel by Palestinian youths.

The family of the teenager, identified as Hussam Abdo, said he was gullible and easily manipulated.

"He doesn't know anything, and he has the intelligence of a 12 year old," said his brother, Hosni. ...

Abdo's family said the teenager was not affiliated with any militant group, going to rallies for all of them and identifying with whichever one carried out the latest attack on Israelis.

They said he acted strangely Tuesday, giving candy to his family and neighbors and refusing to explain why.

He got his hair cut in the style his mother, Tamam, likes and told her he would do anything she wants, she said.

"You never are like this," she said "What happened?"

"I just want you to be happy with me," he responded.

Abdo left his house Wednesday morning saying he was going to school, but never arrived there.

Hosni Abdo said he was furious with whoever persuaded his brother to strap on the bomb vest.

"The ones who sent him are stupid, because the army will give him two slaps and he will tell them who sent him," Hosni Abdo said.

The secular press has hit on the reason God will destroy this Islamic Arab Palestinian culture though they themselves remain willingly ignorant. It is their wickedness. It is because they defy the God of the Bible who clearly said he hates those who send their sons and daughters to be burnt in the fires of their gods. This is the Holy Land where these heathen Palestinians display their defiance for the whole world to see. They are blatant in proclaiming it is all for the praise of their false god Allah. They boldly put the authority of the Koran above that of the Bible. It is for these reasons that this culture has doomed itself. The God of the Bible would not tolerate such heathenistic practice in the Holy Land in the past, and He certainly will not tolerate it for long today! The Jews are back, and the statues about the Land are again valid. The whole world must adjust to this coming dispensational change.

The God of the Bible is not finished with the Holy Land. It is His, and He will mold it to His likeness. It is this gentile dominated world that must conform to what God is doing in the Holy Land today. The Nations are as dust to this God of the Bible. The advancements of wicked man are meaningless when His Holy Land is once again His focus. A modern world is still no match to God Almighty. The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again. He is coming to the Holy Land at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount.

The fire of the LORD of hosts is far more awesome to contemplate then the fires of the gods of vanity. Are you ready? Or, are you willingly ignorant of the single sacrifice of the LORD Jesus Christ that provides salvation to a world of wicked men? The vanity of this generation is a thing that passeth away. Only those who have received the LORD Jesus Christ have a peaceful resting place. Only the "Born Again" have a future that is forever linked with the coming again savior. Today is the day. Tomorrow may be too late. Won't you come to Him?

Ps 144:4-8

4 Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.

5 Bow thy heavens, O LORD, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.

6 Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them.

7 Send thine hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of strange children;

8 Whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

Isa 29:5-7

5 Moreover the multitude of thy strangers shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passeth away: yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly.

6 Thou shalt be visited of the LORD of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.

7 And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel, even all that fight against her and her munition, and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision.

1 Chron 19:4

4 Wherefore Hanun took David's servants, and shaved them, and cut off their garments in the midst hard by their buttocks, and sent them away.



Israeli television stations aired footage on Sunday of Syrian policemen firing automatic weapons at unarmed Kurds running through streets and fields during clashes with police on March 12 and 13. The film was broadcast out of the area by Kurdish media outlets before they were closed down, according to Arab affairs analyst Ehud Ya’ari of Israel TV Channel 2. Automatic gunfire and screams can be heard in the videotape of Syria’s clampdown on protests that left over 30 people dead.

Despicable Act of Brutality

Meanwhile world governments rushed to condemn the targeted killing of Yassin. Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak described it as “a despicable act of brutality,” and hastily called off plans to send a delegation of lawmakers to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the signing of the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty in Jerusalem on Tuesday. 

British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw said the strike was not only unlawful but, “unacceptable, unjustified and unlikely to achieve its objectives,” adding that Israel’s cause is not helped by killing “an 80 year-old [sic] man in a wheelchair.” 

In Brussels where European Foreign Ministers were convening urgent talks to dicuss a united approach to Islamic terrorism in the aftermath of the deadly March 3 Madrid train attacks, EU External Affairs Commissioner Chris Patten chided Israel for lacking "the political will to end the murder, mayhem, and killing."

US STate Department spokesman Richard Boucher also criticized the strike, saying "The United States is deeply troubled by this morning's actions ... The event in our view, increases tension and doesn't help our efforts to resume progress toward peace."



I suppose the gentile world will never be satisfied until the Jews of Israel reconcile themselves to be the forever sacrificial lambs for the Islamic Arab Palestinians. No defensive action by Jews is ever acceptable by this generation of gentile leaders. It is a sad commentary when hardly a word makes the secular headlines about the recent Syrian massacre of Kurds?


I suppose the US should never have gone into Afghanistan? We should have left the terrorists continue to attack with increasing viciousness, and hopefully, some day, they would feel sorry about how willingly we sacrifice our women and children to feed their blood lusts? It makes about as much sense.


The God of the Bible never held Israel of old to such ridiculous standards, nor has He commissioned His Christian Church to passively do nothing while woman and children are being victimized by mindless cut-throats. Responsibility demands action. There is no sitting on your hands in the face of aggressive evil. The danger with God's people is if we let our own evil out-do that of the heathens. Had Israel machine-gunned their way into Gaza to execute Yassin as the Syrians have done to the Kurds their evil would put them on dangerous ground with the God of the Bible. I'm convinced both Israel and the United States have kept their evil tendencies under control during these harrowing years of war. The other cheek has been offered again and again. What we should never do as responsible governments is foolishly offer innocent lives to be victimized by these blood thirsty wild animals that are never satisfied.


The Ammonites do not exist anymore. They insulted the servants of King David, and in so doing they defied  the God of the Bible. The non-Arab Syrians of that day learned a hard lesson by supporting the Ammonites. The Arab Syrians of today should take note!


The God of the Bible says there is only one way to be saved. Any religion, or individual that adds to, or denies the singular truth that the Biblical Jesus Christ sacrificed Himself so sinners can be saved has defied God in the same manner as the Ammonites. The same fate awaits them. Only the Biblical Christ has the power to save. The Bible warns of false prophets, and even false Christs who defy the truth! The Biblical Christ is only associated with the Bible, and nothing else! He is far above religions which are powerless. Be certain it is the Biblical Christ in whom you have put your faith? It must be complete submission to His purity and holiness. It must produce visible righteous results, or it is a false faith given to a false god. It is more then an emotional high. It allows the "Born Again" to endure the worst this evil world can inflict without ever doubting that this Biblical Christ is real! Won't you come to Him today? Only the real Christ has the power to change your heart forever.



1 Chron 19:4-8

4 Wherefore Hanun took David's servants, and shaved them, and cut off their garments in the midst hard by their buttocks, and sent them away.

5 Then there went certain, and told David how the men were served. And he sent to meet them: for the men were greatly ashamed. And the king said, Tarry at Jericho until your beards be grown, and then return.

6 And when the children of Ammon saw that they had made themselves odious to David, Hanun and the children of Ammon sent a thousand talents of silver to hire them chariots and horsemen out of Mesopotamia, and out of Syria-maachah, and out of Zobah.

7 So they hired thirty and two thousand chariots, and the king of Maachah and his people; who came and pitched before Medeba. And the children of Ammon gathered themselves together from their cities, and came to battle.

8 And when David heard of it, he sent Joab, and all the host of the mighty men.

1 Chron 19:17-19

17 And it was told David; and he gathered all Israel, and passed over Jordan, and came upon them, and set the battle in array against them. So when David had put the battle in array against the Syrians, they fought with him.

18 But the Syrians fled before Israel; and David slew of the Syrians seven thousand men which fought in chariots, and forty thousand footmen, and killed Shophach the captain of the host.

19 And when the servants of Hadarezer saw that they were put to the worse before Israel, they made peace with David, and became his servants: neither would the Syrians help the children of Ammon any more.

Zech 4:11

11 Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof?




 Jerusalem police will increase their presence on the Temple Mount and Old City today after receiving intelligence information that suggested Palestinians intend to incite worshippers at the end of Friday afternoon prayers, in response to Israel's assassination of Hamas leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin. Entry to the Temple Mount compound will be restricted to Muslim men, 45 and older, who hold Israeli identification cards. Police will also be deployed in the Old City to prevent violent demonstrations.


Meanwhile, defense experts have concluded in the last two days that despite the declarations made by Hamas and other organizations to exact revenge, there would be no dramatic change in the number or intensity of terror attacks. An intelligence source suggested the Hamas has reached the limit of its capabilities and for over a month, Hamas has been stepping up efforts to conduct attacks. Yassin had ordered the expanded Hamas efforts, ahead of an Israeli withdrawal from Gaza.

Muslim worshippers peacefully disperse from Temple Mount

By Jonathan Lis, Haaretz Correspondent and Haaretz Service


Muslim worshippers dispersed Friday afternoon with no major incidents following prayers on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem's Old City, Israel Radio reported.

Jerusalem police increased their presence on the Temple Mount and in the Old City in response to intelligence information received Thursday suggesting that Palestinian figures intend to incite worshippers, in response to Israel's assassination of Hamas leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin.

Based on the information, it was decided to restrict entry to the Temple Mount compound to Muslim men, 45 years of age and older, who hold Israeli identification cards.

Police were deployed in increased numbers in the Temple Mount compound and in the narrow alleyways of the Old City to prevent assemblies or violent demonstrations in the area.


It is possible to control the mindless beast. It is the mindless politics of this gentile dominated world that perpetuates the Middle East conflict by restricting the Jews from what they must do to survive. The God of the Bible demands the building of Ezekiel's Temple. Imagine how the beasts will howl when that decree goes forth. The whole gentile world will howl along with the secularized Jews, but the God of the Bible will be in control. Resistance will be futile. Hate and more hate will be all that the frustrated beasts will be able to muster.

Now, read below the future testimony of two Jewish prophets who minister from Jerusalem in a soon coming Biblical future day. Imagine them as giving forth the decree to build Ezekiel's Temple. Imagine 144,000  independent fundamental Jewish settlers living on the territories of  their tribal forefathers committing themselves to the decree.

The last Jewish Temple is almost ready to be built on the Temple Mount. The time is short. The Two Olive Trees are most probably alive somewhere in Israel. Are you at peace with what God is about to do? The LORD Jesus Christ is the only answer! It is the Biblical Christ whom you must receive! It is His blood that the altar in Ezekiel's Temple will be dedicated as a remembrance. It will be His blood that all future animal sacrifices at that altar will represent!

The Two Olive Trees

(Building Ezekiel's Temple [42 mo's] Finishes Their Testimony)

Rev 11:1-14
11:1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
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.
7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

Sole First Temple relic may be a forgery

By Amiram Barkat

Investigators for the Israel Antiquities Authority have been informed that a precious Ivory Pomegranate, on display at the Israel Museum since 1988, is a forgery.

On the basis of an inscription it had been dated from the period of the First Temple, 10th century BCE. However, it is information on the origin of the inscription that has raised doubts about the authenticity of the item. The Antiquities Authority refused to reveal the origins and nature of the information it holds.

The inscription, completed by archaeologists, is translated as "Belonging to the Temp[le of Yahweh, holy to the priests." The expert who confirmed the authenticity of the inscription is Andre Lemaire, who also recently asserted the authenticity of the "James Ossuary" which had an inscription attributing reference to the brother of Jesus - which proved to have been a forgery.

The Ivory Pomegranate was bought in 1988 for $600,000 from a contribution made by a Swiss donor. The sum spent and the circumstances of the find resulted in severe criticism, rejected by the museum that argued that the find is unique.

Then director of the Israel Antiquities Authority, Amir Drori, who authorized the purchase, was accused of encouraging, by this action, antiquities theft. Drori responded that the item is a national treasure.

Current director of the Israel Antiquities Authority, Shuka Dorfman, asked the Israel Museum recently to deliver the item for examinations by experts of the Antiquities Authority.

Sources at the Israel Museum expressed confidence in the item's authenticity. The Pomegranate is the final and most important of a number of items whose authenticity is doubted by the Antiquities Authority.

The investigation into suspected forged antiquities began following the discovery of the item known as the "Yehoash Inscription." Subsequently dozens of forged items have been discovered.

It is not believed that the forgers of these items are related to the Ivory Pomegranate. Members of the Antiquities Authority assigned to protecting antiquities from thieves and officers from the Jerusalem District Fraud Squad, are handling the investigation. According to the investigators, for the past 15 years a group of forgers has been identified as running a "factory" for forgeries.

The investigators maintain that at the center of the ring is the collector Oded Golan, the owner of the "James Ossuary" and the "Yehoash Inscription." Golan rejects all accusations, but the investigators say that they have many items that originated with the suspect and were sold through intermediaries.

One of the common denominators of all the items, investigators say, is that they were presented as originating from the First and Second Temple periods.

Amir Ginor, head of the Theft Prevention team at the Antiquities Authority, say that the forgeries were systematic. "The modus operandi was to create items of historical value on the basis of the assumption or knowledge that collectors will wish to purchase them."


Here we go again! The liberal controlled Antiquities Authority can't stand any artifact no matter what it is that affirms the Bible! It is just that simple. The battle is not science vs religion as the liberals like to portray it. There is much more science backing the authenticity of all three mentioned artifacts. However, dating is not an exact science, and there is no artifact anywhere in the world that can't be challenged as to date (including all the dinosaur fossils). In this case even though the overwhelming conclusions of most experts is that they are authentic, experts can be found like in the O J trial that put doubt into the minds of the non-experts. This is exactly what the Antiquity Authority is doing! They will never believe any artifact can come from the First Temple because they believe both King David and King Solomon are myths! They gnash their teeth at any proof to the contrary. The Bible is a book of fairytales to them, and nothing will ever change their opinion from this terrible bias. Their latest attack is based on secret proof so they say. What kind of science is this that must be kept secret? We are told to bow to their supposed expert opinion, and trust in their word that they have uncontroversial proof which can't be refuted? Should they reveal their latest revelation the real experts would probably find it foolishly biased rather then scientific. The ossuary of James has changed three times that I know of from being a forgery then being authentic. I'm sure the attacks will go on until the Kingdom comes. It's authenticity has endured the previous attacks, and I'm sure it will survive this latest one. The last I knew it was proved authentic, and  not a forgery as this author states. I guess it just has to do with who's papers and articles you read?

It is the enemies of God who will be found liars in the end. It is the enemies of God who will never believe the Bible. It is the enemies of God who reject the Biblical Christ. The Bible says all the high places that the enemies raise will be put under foot by those who believe God and His Bible. All the false opinions about creation rendered by biased enemies of God will be proven lies for which judgment will be rendered. What do you believe when there is conflict with the literal Bible? Do you side with the enemies of God? Which Christ do you trust? The Christ of religion, or the Christ of the Bible? Today is the day to get your heart straight with the Christ of the Bible! Won't you accept Him as your Savior?

Hamas leader says Bush is the 'enemy' of God and Islam

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — The new leader of the militant group Hamas on Sunday called President Bush the enemy of Islam and said that "God declared war" against Bush, the United States and Israel.

By Kevin Frayer, AP

In a speech at Gaza's Islamic University, Hamas leader Abdel Aziz Rantisi said he was not surprised that the United States vetoed a U.N. Security Council resolution condemning Israel's assassination on Monday of Hamas spiritual leader Sheik Ahmed Yassin.

"We knew that Bush is the enemy of God, the enemy of Islam and Muslims. America declared war against God. Sharon declared war against God and God declared war against America, Bush and Sharon," Rantisi said. "The war of God continues against them and I can see the victory coming up from the land of Palestine by the hand of Hamas."

The United States lists Hamas as a terrorist organization. The militant group has carried out many of the suicide bombings that have killed more than 450 people in the current conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

Immediately after the Israeli missile strike that killed Yassin, Rantisi and other Hamas leaders threatened to retaliate against the United States, Israel's staunchest ally. However, a few days later, Rantisi backed down from the threat, saying Hamas would only be active in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Israel.


Far better to be the enemy of Allah, the Koran, the Prophet Mohamed, and Islam then to be the enemy of the God of the Bible - The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob! Get it straight! This is a war over which God is going to have sovereignty over the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount! The battle is over which book is true - the Bible, or the Koran! This great battle now engaged during this our generation is over who is really the savior of mankind - Mohamed, or the LORD Jesus Christ! The secular press, and even the religious reporters downplay the truth that is so evidently clear. This is a religious war! It is the God of the Bible fighting all the religions of the world! The God of the Bible has been challenged at the frontline by the mindless beasts of this generation who send their children to die in the fires of Allah, and things are not going well for them!

It is not just Islam that is in defiance of the God of the Bible. The great gentile powers around the world are also engaged. The God of the Bible will not back down over what He is doing to bring about dispensational change. The preparations God is making for the Kingdom age are in the news daily. The God of the Bible is not like the lukewarm Christian Church of today. He is uncompromising in His demand that all men give Him absolute surrender. Islam must surrender its aspirations for the Holy Land. Mankind must surrender their aspirations of self government, and anything goes religions. All must submit to Biblical righteousness. All must submit to the coming Messiah/King who is scheduled to rule from the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount! God has already chosen a people to rule with Him during the coming dispensation. He has declared He will change their hearts so they willingly submit to Him as the Biblical Christ. All governments, all religions, and all cultures will be crushed if they refuse to submit. Puritanical righteousness is coming with the coming Kingdom. Submission is the only way to have peace with God in this dispensation coming with the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

There is no need for pompous declarations of war. The evidence is sufficient to realize Islam is in big trouble with the God of the Bible. This 1500-year old false religion that has always been opposed to the Biblical Christ is doomed to the dung heap of history. What is your future disposition? Will you join the pompous Mullah's, and suicide killers of innocent men, woman, and children? Or, will you make peace with the Biblical Christ?


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.

Is this the end for Ariel Sharon?

March 29 2004 at 03:06AM

By Ramit Plushnick-Masti

Jerusalem - Israel's state attorney formally recommended on Sunday that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon be indicted for bribe-taking, the media has reported.

The state attorney does not have the last say on the matter; the final decision is up to the attorney general who is expected to rule within a month.

However, Sunday's reported recommendation would carry considerable weight and was seen as a major step toward a possible resignation by Sharon. ...

Some analysts said that while under a cloud of indictment, Sharon could try to speed up his plan to withdraw from parts of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The proposed pullback is widely supported by the Israeli public.

"In the end, the attorney general won't be able to ignore the state attorney's opinion," Ofir Pines-Paz, a leading lawmaker from the opposition Labour Party, told Israel Army Radio. "The prime minister has to suspend himself until the attorney general's final decision is made."

Yossi Beilin, a leader of the dovish opposition party Yahad, also urged Sharon to step down.

Sharon has been plagued by a slew of corruption scandals since taking office in 2001.

The focus of this investigation is the so-called "Greek Island Affair."

Israeli businessman David Appel was indicted in January for allegedly bribing Sharon with $690 000 to promote a tourism project in Greece and to help rezone urban land in Tel Aviv, before and after Sharon was elected prime minister.

In 1999, when Appel was promoting his tourism project in Greece, Sharon was foreign minister. Sharon's son, Gilad, was allegedly paid large sums of money so his father would use his influence to push the project forward. The project failed, as did the one near Tel Aviv. . - Sapa-AP



Ariel Sharon seems to represents those secular Jewish politicians that have long plagued the Jewish People. There have been many shepherds down through the ages who thought they could use the privileged position God allowed them to attain to feed themselves with greed. Crooked politicians are certainly not unique, but the God of the Bible takes special offence to those who are crooks in Israel because only the Jews have been so favored as to be identified as the chosen of God. The saddest crooks are those who lived honorably in the beginning, but allowed greed to consume them in the end. The public trust is dishonored, but what is far worse is the reputation of God is demeaned. God is very jealous of His holiness, and a crooked Jewish politician becomes marked by God for serious requiring of his deeds.

I watch the phony TV Charismatic healers fleece the flock daily. I watch their appetite for greed grow with each passing year. How sad will be the requiring day for them. The Christ that these modern day money changers use as their gravy train says He will require of them all of the flock who died of the infirmities these phony shepherds told were healed. All their high living at the expense of the desperate shall be required!

God has made a special promise to the Jews. Only the Jews have a connection to the Promised Land, and the associated promises. It is not for the gentiles. God has promised He will deliver them from the crooked politicians and religious leaders. Woe to the shepherds who feed themselves, and see God's chosen as prey to be fleeced.

God has already kept the first part of His promise by bringing the Jews back to the Holy Land this third miraculous time. Surly, He will keep the rest of His promise by delivering them from the present crooked leadership.

Today, the only Biblical good shepherd offers that good pasture to you. It is your responsibility to allow Him to gather you in. Only the LORD Jesus Christ stands at the door of the sheepfold. Won't you come to Him for entrance?


Woe To The Crooked Shepherds

Ezek 34:7-15

7 Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;
8 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my flock;
9 Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;
10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.
11 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out.
12 As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.
13 And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country.
14 I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel.
15 I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord GOD.

Science on verge of new `Creation'

Labs say they have nearly all the tools to make artificial life

By Ronald Kotulak
Tribune science reporter
Posted March 28 2004

More than 3.5 billion years after nature transformed non-living matter into living things, populating Earth with a cornucopia of animals and plants, scientists say they are finally ready to try their hand at creating life.

If they succeed, humanity will enter a new age of "living technology," where harnessing the power of life to spontaneously adapt to complex situations could solve problems that now defy modern engineering.

Scientists eagerly talk of a new world of ultra-small living machines, where marvelously made-to-order cells heal the body, clean up pollutants, transform electronics and communication, and much more.

The researchers say it may be possible to make sweaters that mend themselves. Or computers that fix their own glitches.

Though some experts see this new technology as providing unlimited benefits, others worry about the moral appropriateness of human-made life and the introduction of new species with the potential to evolve into creatures that could run amok. ....

"It's a synthetic biology revolution," said John McCaskill, professor of theoretical biochemistry at Friedrich-Schiller University in Jena, Germany, who is overseeing the European Union's artificial life program.

"We obviously don't want to be too polemic about how rapidly this is going to transform society," he said. "But I think that we are seeing a new feature of science and technology where systems are tenuously adaptive and that this is a significant component of the design process." ....What makes life possible, scientists believe, is the natural tendency of atoms to assemble into molecules, and for molecules to assemble into increasingly complicated structures.

All of the basic elements of life--the amino acids that make proteins and the nucleotides that make DNA and its sidekick RNA--have been produced in the laboratory from chemicals thought to have been present on primitive Earth: hydrogen, methane, ammonia, formaldehyde, cyanide, thiols and hydrosulfide.

Some of these elements are so easy to self-assemble that amino acids are found on meteorites originating at the beginning of the solar system. The Murchison meteorite, for example, contains a wide variety of chemicals, including simple amino acids and fats called lipids. When put in water, lipids spontaneously form bubble-shaped membranes that resemble cells.

Earth coalesced 4.5 billion years ago during the formation of the solar system, and it was too hot for life for several hundred million years. But it didn't take long after the Earth cooled for life to appear. Scientists estimate that fossils of primitive organisms appeared 3.8 billion years ago.

Researchers argue over the definition of life, but they generally agree that it must have three elements: a container, such as the membrane wall of a cell; metabolism, the ability to convert basic nutrients into a cell's working parts; and genes, chemical instructions for building a cell that can be passed on to progeny and change as conditions change.

Each of these critical elements has now been achieved in the laboratory, albeit in rudimentary form, and scientists say they are ready to try to put them all together in one working unit. ....

One of the tricks they learned is how to use the remarkable properties of clay, thought to have been abundant on the early Earth. Clay has natural catalytic properties--it speeds up the assembly of lipid membranes a hundredfold, for example, and also hastens the assembly of genetic material called ribonucleic acid.

The two researchers' findings indicate that critical chemicals can spontaneously be brought together to form membranes and genes that are essential for life. They have succeeded in creating cell-like containers that have incorporated laboratory-made RNA.

The Bible says God made the first man from the dust of the earth. Did scientists finally find out why God used the dust (or clay) as His starting material? I kind of doubt it. God created the clay, and its catalytic properties. I doubt God's creative powers are limited to the need of physical catalysts to speed up the process. Science is on the brink of inventing what they are calling life. They are on the brink of duplicating the process God long ago perfected in six short days by simply saying the word. The one thing Science will never be able to do is breath into their inventions the breath of God. They will never create a living soul.

I remember my first wind-up toy. It sure seemed alive to my childish mind. I took it apart, and was disappointed when all I found were gears, levers, and springs. My parents were even more disappointed when it could not be put back together. Science has managed to take apart what God created in an instant. Now, they are trying to put it back together, and make it work. It is human nature, and may find some degrees of success if we really have billions of years to experiment?

The gears, levers, and springs of DNA, genes, and cells may someday be duplicated. Some scientists think it will be sooner then later. It won't shake my faith in the literal Bible. I would not call it creation any more then I could have claimed creative powers had I gotten that wind-up toy back together, and working. When science can duplicate an apple seed that can be planted, grow, and produce tasty apples, I'll take more notice. When their tree can get angry, and toss apples at me because I insult it like in the Wizard of OZ, I'll reconsider my view of what is creation.

The Bible says God breathed into man life. God gave man an immortal soul that can't ever die! Our bodies are biological machines designed to die as the result of sin. The soul which has no resemblances to anything in this physical world dwells in the body. It can't be weighed, or put under the microscope. At death comes judgment according to the Bible, and the eternal destiny of each individual soul is determined by the Creator. God the creator has declared all souls will go to only one of two places - heaven or hell! Where is God going to send your immortal soul? You can know! The Biblical Christ sacrificed Himself at Calvary to provide the way by which sinners can be saved. The only way to heaven is through Christ! It is He who is soon coming to Zion to be the salvation of Israel. He has already brought His chosen people out of captivity from the gentile world, and Jacob is soon to rejoice in the fullness of the purpose for which the Creator made man. What is your future? At the great resurrection when all souls are united with eternal bodies that will never die - will you be rejoicing, or will you be weeping and gnashing your teeth?

Ps 53
53:1 To the chief Musician upon Ma'-ha-lath, Mas'-chil, A Psalm of David.
The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.
2 God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.
3 Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
4 Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread: they have not called upon God.
5 There were they in great fear, where no fear was: for God hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth against thee: thou hast put them to shame, because God hath despised them.
6 Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! When God bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
