Oldest Hebrew Text Discovered at King David's Border Fortress

by Gil Ronen

(IsraelNN.com) Archaeologists have discovered what they say is the oldest Hebrew text ever found, at a site they believe was King David's front line fortress in the war against the people of Pleshet, also known as the Philistines. The site overlooks the Elah Valley, where the young David slew Goliath, the Philistine giant, with a well-aimed shot from a sling.

The text is written in ink on a pottery shard. It is made up of five lines of text in Proto-Canaanite characters separated by lines. The discovery, by archaeologists Prof. Yossi Garfinkel and Sa'ar Ganor of Hebrew University, is being hailed as one of the most important finds in Israel since the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Carbon-14 dates to King David
The writing on the shard seems to be a letter sent from one person to another and archaeologists have still not deciphered it completely. Preliminary analysis shows that it contains the words "king" (melech), "judge" (shofet), and "eved" (slave), but the terms seem to be parts of names, as in "Achimelech" or "Evedel" (lit. "King's brother," "Servant of God").

Carbon-14 dating as well as chemical analysis of the pottery found at the site shows conclusively that it dates from between 1,000 and 975 B.C. – the time of King David's reign. David who wrote the Psalms, unified the tribes of Israel and made Jerusalem the capital of the Israeli nation – is considered to be Israel's greatest King, whose reign ushered in the period in which the First Temple was built.

The writing therefore predates the Dead Sea Scrolls by about 1,000 years.

'David's ruins'
The site where the shard was found is known as Khirbet Kheyafa, but Rabbi Barnea Selavan of the Foundation Stone organization says that "the local Bedouins refer to it as… are you sitting down?... Khirbet Daudi." The word khirbeh in Arabic refers to a ruin and Daudi is Arabic for David.

Also known as the Ela Fortress because of its location at the Elah Valley near Beit Shemesh, archaeologists believe the fortress controlled a strategic point overlooking the main route connecting Pleshet and the Judean lowland with the mountainous region and the central cities of Jerusalem and Hevron.

The ancient point of settlement covers more than four acres and is surrounded by a 700 meter long wall. Archaeologists believe that 200,000 tons of rock were mined in order to build it. The wall contains a massive and ornate gate built from hewn rock.

Stoned in the head
According to Selavan, there was some debate among archeologists as to whether the fortress was the Jewish front line against the Philistines or the opposite – the Philistines' front line against the Jews. However, there is now widespread agreement that the site was Jewish: there are no pig bones and chemical analysis (petrography) of the ceramics found there shows that the structure was Jewish, not the Philistine's.

The Elah Valley is the site at which Jewish and Philistine armies faced each other in one of the most glorious battles ever: the fateful victory in which David killed Goliath with a stone to the forehead. The Bible describes the location (in 1 Samuel, 17:2-3) thus:

And Saul and the men of Israel were gathered together, and pitched by the valley of Elah, and set the battle in array against the Philistines.

And the Philistines stood on a mountain on the one side, and Israel stood on a mountain on the other side: and there was a valley between them.

 

The digs at the spot have been underwritten by the Berman Center Biblical Archeology Hebrew University, the Brennan Foundation and Corner Stone, which is turning the site into an educational attraction and invites the public to participate in the digs.

 

 

 

The evidence keeps building from the Holy Land that the Bible is true, and the Koran is a lie. It is only reasonable that the God of the Bible who brought about this miraculous Third Exodus during our generation would now focus the attention of the world on the Jewish Kingdom he promised to King David that would last forever. What King David began the LORD Jesus Christ will complete when He comes again. The re-establishment of the Jews in their Promised Land signals the soon end of the Church Age dispensation, and the preparation for the promised Kingdom of Heaven here on earth.

Matthew 6:9-10

9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

KJV

This is the same Kingdom John the Baptist proclaimed when he said "repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand." Such an offer could only be made when the LORD Jesus Christ was here on earth. He is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount to establish that very same promised eternal Jewish Kingdom. They nailed His indictment above His head at Calvary.

Matthew 2:1-2

2 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

KJV

Matthew 27:11

11 And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest.

KJV

Matthew 27:29-31

29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!

30 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.

31 And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.

KJV

Matthew 27:37

37 And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

KJV

The LORD Jesus Christ earned the title "King of the Jews" at Calvary. His linage was through the line of King David. The same David that Islamic theology says is nothing more then a Zionist myth. It is the right time for the archaeologist's spade to bring into the light the truth that differentiates the Bible, and the Koran. The truth that separates the lip service Christians from those who are "born again." How often have I read the liberal denominational Christian theologians mock the Bible, and the account of David and Goliath. Folks, the Christian  nay-sayers are about to join their Islamic cohorts in a fate worse then death. Eternal torment in the lake of fire!

The doors of grace and mercy are not going to be open forever. The Great White Throne Judgment will close those doors forever for those found guilty. The greatest of all guilt will be leveled against those who heard of Christ, but rejected Him. Who never sought the truth when it was laid out before them.

Friend, I know not what the future holds for you, but I know without Christ it will be eternal torment in the lake of fire. Humble yourself, and come to Christ for the forgiveness of your sins before the doors slam shut on your eternal soul. Come to Christ, and live. Come to Christ for only He can write your name into the Book of Life.

 

Revelation 20:10-15

10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

KJV

OU Calls for Civil Discourse

by Hillel Fendel

(IsraelNN.com) The Orthodox Union (OU) has prepared eight resolutions for its biannual Convention in Jerusalem this autumn. These include calls to avoid slandering the Jews of Judea and Samaria, cautious support for cooperation with Evangelicals, and measures to ease the financial crisis.

Other resolutions deal with the centrality of Jerusalem, Jewish education, the stringent conditions under which a Palestinian government would be recognized, green initiatives, and Iran.

The resolutions are expected to be approved at the upcoming OU Convention in Jerusalem, scheduled for Nov. 26-30 of this year.

Civil Discourse
One resolution calls for "civil discourse" in the public debate over critical issues, and specifically states that the OU will "speak out against efforts to slander all the inhabitants of Yehuda and Shomron because of the inappropriate language and actions of a small minority."

The resolution appears to be tailor-designed as a response to the words of outgoing Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and other government ministers following the destruction of the Federman/Tor family farm last week. After two incensed residents cursed the soldiers who perpetrated the middle-of-the-night destruction and eviction of the families, including small children, Olmert said, "We are sick of all this violence, verbal violence that brings to physical violence... I expect to hear from the Defense Minister and Justice Minister what is to be done against these people..."

Justice Minister Daniel Friedmann said, "I am disgusted by the incitement expressed by extremist elements in the territories against IDF soldiers and security forces. We will act firmly to uproot this phenomenon. I call on the Attorney General and Israel Police to use all necessary means to deal with this." Defense Minister Ehud Barak said, "I want to emphasize the gravity of the words and actions of the extreme right-wing in the territories. I am of the opinion that the punishments in this matter are too soft, and the law enforcment and legal bodies must [rectify this]." 

Barak later said that measures such as administrative dention - arrest and detention without charges being filed - should be used against Jews in Judea and Samaria more widely than has been done until now.

Jerusalem - Center of Jewish People
The OU also had something to say about Jerusalem, in light of the negotiations with the Palestinian Authority: "Yerushalayim must forever remain the spiritual, cultural and political center of the Jewish people and the State of Israel, and the OU is mandated to undertake all efforts that are necessary to secure and maintain Yerushalayim as the eternal and undivided capital of the State of Israel. The OU is further mandated to oppose any proposal or plan to relinquish any part of Yerushalayim to any foreign authority."

Evangelicals: Respect and Suspect Them
Regarding the 60 million Evangelical Christians in the United States, the OU's message was complex. It "gratefully acknowledges the relationship we have forged with many Evangelical Christian leaders, institutions and people in support of many values and interests we share... [M]any leading Evangelical Christians and their communities have vigorously supported religious liberty and rights of conscience for people of many varied faiths, and have joined us in promoting a proper understanding of the First Amendment which insists upon neutrality toward religion in government programs... [W]e appreciate the Evangelical community’s support of the State of Israel with a united undivided Jerusalem as its capital..."

On the other hand, "The Orthodox Union is acutely aware of the desire of Evangelical Christians to spread their religion to Jews as a matter of faith. We remain vigilant to the dangers this presents to Jewish continuity and will be forthright in sharing our concerns in this area with other groups when this issue arises."

PA and Ecology
The OU conditions U.S. and Israel financial support or diplomatic recognition to a Palestinian government on the following: The PA must explicitly recognize Israel's right to exist as a Jewish state, renounce violence, agree to honor all past agreements with Israel, and concretely demonstrate its capacity to dismantle terrorist infrastructures and eliminate educational programs which incite hostility to Israelis and Jews.

The OU also speaks out ecologically, encouraging "responsible environmental behavior while being mindful of limited communal financial resources," such as recycling and paper reduction. The OU also resolves to "encourage and support appropriate government efforts to decrease our dependence on foreign oil."

 

 

 

I am not impressed with the Orthodox Union, but I believe they are right to bring before the public the bias shown against the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers. I might point out that only some of the Settlers are Orthodox Jews. The vast majority of the settlers of Yesha (Judah and Samaria) are a mixed group of varying commitments to their Jewish-ness. The one common factor they all seem to share is an understanding that the God of their fathers commanded them to occupy the Promised Land. They are convinced the victorious 1967 War was ordained of God to open all of Judah and Samaria to occupation, and they are the Jews of this generation responsible to follow that command. The largest grouping of the settlers are those who came from Russia after the iron curtain fell. They were Jewish, but had lost all their Jewish traditions because of the communists. They took a good long look at the confusion of Judaism today from the ultra-Orthodox to the Reformed modernists. They saw many secularized Jews who did not even believe in God anymore, and came to the conclusion that Israel as it is today is not redeemed. They could not find a place where they fit. They did not carry the baggage of tradition, yet they were seeking God. I suppose in a way they were really seeking for truth, and concluded it just is not there in Judaism as it is today. The one thing they did know was true was God's command to occupy the Promised Land, and that they dd. Now they find themselves the victims of the World Politicians who decided to adopt the Russian authored Road Map. The peace plan for Israel that is premised on the idea that the clock in the Holy Land must be turned back to pre-1967 time when Islam controlled all of Judah and Samaria including most of Jerusalem especially all of the Temple Mount. The Road Map is dead unless the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers are forcibly evicted from Judah and Samaria. When Bush adopted the Road Map to show the Europeans he was a team player joining the EU and UN who already joined in with the Russians, great pressure was applied to Sharon to accept the inevitable, and give up all the so called occupied lands.  Sharon humped ship leaving his conservative roots forming the Kadima Party which would support the Road Map. The former conservative Likud Party would never have been pressured into accepting the unilateral withdrawal from the Gaza and Jericho that happened under Kadima rule. This was clearly the first step in implementing the Road Map. Over 2000 Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers were evicted. The next Road Map step will be to evict over 300,000 Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers from Yesha.

Yes, the issue of the Settlers does need to be publicly debated. Olmert said the Biblical prophecies about a Jewish Kingdom must be forgotten by this generation of the Road Map. The Settlers do not seem to agree, and neither do I. I know the God of the Bible does not agree with the Road Map, and has blunted every attempt to implement the second step from the rockets coming from Gaza, the take over of the Gaza by Hamas, to the lost war in Lebanon with Hizbullah. There is nothing that points to peace with the Arabs should the rest of the Road Map be implemented.

God's prophecy in Ezekiel 38 & 39 is to wipe blasphemous Islam, and it's barbarian god Allah off the planet. The door will then be open for the building of Ezekiel's Temple as prophesied in Ezekiel 40 - 48. A Temple with a throne from where the Messiah will establish His forever Kingdom ruling as King of Kings, and LORD of Lords. Friend, I pray you will be part of that Kingdom when it comes. The Bible is clear that you must be born again in order to enter. Friend, if you will come to Christ with all your heart, soul, and might He will give you a new life. He died at Calvary as the perfect atonement for sin. He died in the sinners place. He was raised from the dead proving He has power over sin and death. He offers forgiveness of sin to any who will come. Friend, won't you come to this Christ of the Bible, and be saved. Won't you come to this Christ of the Bible, and be born again.

 

Ezekiel 43:7

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.

KJV

Matthew 18:3

3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Rice may submit ‘summation’ on Mideast peace talks to Obama
 

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will likely present the incoming Obama administration with a summation of where Israeli-Palestinian peace talks stand and outlining her own parameters for resolving the long-simmering conflict, diplomatic officials in Jerusalem said on Tuesday. Rice is scheduled to arrive on Thursday for the 24th time as secretary of state, and then go to Sharm e-Sheikh on Sunday for a meeting of the Middle East Quartet. At that meeting, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni and Palestinian Authority negotiator Ahmed Qurei are expected to brief the Quartet representatives on where the negotiations currently stand. According to assessments in Jerusalem, Rice realizes that Israel and the Palestinians will not be able to fulfill her goal of issuing a joint document codifying their work, so she will listen to the parties and draft a summary herself.
 


Obama aides deny holding secret meeting with Hamas

Islamist faction insists 'good relations' ongoing with US president-elect

Aides to US President-elect Barack Obama on Tuesday denied a report by Arab sources which claimed that a secret meeting was held in the Gaza Strip between Hamas and members of Obama's advisory team prior to the US general elections last week.

"This assertion is just plain false," Obama's senior foreign policy adviser Denis McDonough told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday.

The denial came after Hamas official Ahmed Yousef calimed Obama's advisors held a secret meeting with Hamas leaders in the lead up to the US presidential elections.

"We first made contact with them on the Internet, and later met with some of them in Gaza, but they advised us not to come out with any statements, as they may have a negative effect on his election campaign and be used by Republican candidate John McCain (to attack Obama)," said Yousef, a political advisor to Hamas leader in Gaza Ismail Haniyeh.

Yousef went on to tell the Arab news agency Al-Hayat that Hamas has had ongoing contact with the Obama camp since the election and that they maintained "good relations." He later added that he had befriended several of Obama's aides while living in the US.

The reports follow remarks by Hamas head Khaled Mashaal in a Sky News interview on Saturday that he is willing to hold talks with Obama, and that he is challenging the newly elected leader to follow through on past statements indicating a willingness to sit down with America's chief adversaries on the world stage.

While campaigning for the White House, Obama said that he would only talk with Hamas if they first renounced terrorism and recognized Israel's right to exist. He also said that Hamas must abide by all past agreements that were made between Israel and the Palestinians.
 

 

 

The ball is rolling with Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount at stake. Now we will see the truth pertaining to Obama and his roll in this miraculous Third Exodus. I have extremely strong feelings that Obama will be the President of the rapture. I believe this man will officiate America's transition into the next dispensation. Bush began the process by adopting the blasphemous Road Map peace plan authored by the atheistic Russians, and supported by the agnostic Europeans. Bush made the Road Map the number one priority item for Condoleezza Rice in her roll as Secretary of State. Now he wants to force the Road Map on Obama. I suspect Obama will either embrace the Road Map from Rice, or come up with something even worse. I do not see Christ being glorified through American policies coming out of the Obama administration directed toward the Holy Land.

Folks, I was no friend of Bush once he jumped aboard the Road Map, and I'm expecting even worse from Obama. I know the politicians will never solve the problems of the Middle East. From a Biblical perspective, I see the politicians in the same light Christ painted those of His generation. They are all vipers and hypocrites. There are none righteous, no not one! Your faith in them will always prove futile. They are mere men, and real peace in the Holy Land, or anywhere else is beyond their abilities. It is only in Christ that the salvation of this generation rests. It is only in the forward movement of Biblical prophecy that Jerusalem will become the capital of the world with Christ ruling as the King of Kings, and LORD of Lords. His linage is that of a Jewish King who will be ruling in the stateliness of King David. Friend, I pray He is your King. I pray you have submitted to His rule with all your heart, soul, and might, He is worthy of all the adoration you could ever muster. He gave His all for you at Calvary, and you owe Him your all. Friend to come this Christ of the Bible, and live.

John 1:10-13

10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Obama advised to engage rather than threaten Tehran
'Open the door to direct, unconditional negotiations'


In preparation for taking office in January, US President-elect Barack Obama is being advised by former American diplomats who believe direct talks are a better way to dismantle the Iranian nuclear threat than increased economic or military pressure.  Read More
 


Gilad: Israel cannot reconcile itself with nuclear Iran


Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amos Gilad, the head of the Israeli Defense Ministry's Diplomatic-Security Bureau, made clear this week that Israel will not tolerate a nuclear Iran in an unusually frank interview with The Jerusalem Post. For now, Israel is backing diplomatic and economic efforts to thwart the Iranians, Gilad added, but it doubts these will work and it is keeping all options open. Some senior figures in the defense ministry have indicated in private forums that Israel might have to accept a nuclear Iran. But Gilad insisted that the main assessment in the defense establishment was that Israel could not be reconciled to a nuclear Iran, since it would constitute an existential threat. "The Iranians are determined to obtain nuclear weaponry," said Gilad. "Iran is controlled by an ideology and a regime that has set itself the goal to be rid of Israel." He added that any dialogue launched by US President-elect Barack Obama with Tehran “can slow processes, but cannot halt them." As for economic pressure, that might work if Iran were facing "total isolation," he said. "But that's not happening."

 

 

I doubt Obama has the determination to stand up to the Iranians. I would be very surprised if the Iranians don't walk all over him, and his liberal ideology that makes him think he can outwit them in their strongest suit. Arabs have been traders throughout all their history. No Harvard man is going to get the best of them in any deal. The Iranians will always get the upper hand in any negotiations. It is their nature to always get the better end of any deal. The Iranians will get what they want, and the Obama team will be left with egg on their faces.

Israel faces the reality of a nuclear Iran. Reality dictates that Iran hates the Jews to such an extent that they actually lust after Jewish blood. Their religious leaders teach that it is Allah's will that this generation of Iranians exterminate the Jews of Israel. Weak world politicians have convinced the Iranian leadership that this is the time to wipe Israel off the map. They will never have a better opportunity. The inexperienced Obama is the perfect patsy with which to negotiate while they posh forward with their plans to invade the Jewish homeland. Iranian religious fanatics could care less about the nuclear deterrents of the Jews. They are willing to sacrifice the nation if necessary for Allah. All that matters is that the nation of Israel be destroyed. The cost to the fanatics is immaterial.

We are moving into an era where the Iranians see opportunity to destroy their eternal enemy the Jews. The coming of Obama makes for perfect timing. Should this be that time the Bible predicts of an invasion of Israel as revealed in Ezekiel 38 & 39 then it is also the perfect time for the predicted rapture of the Church. We may well be the generation that experiences the end of the Church Age dispensation, and the establishment of the Jewish Kingdom Age. The Jews are back in their Promised Land, and the city of Jerusalem is now totally Jewish. The Temple Mount is under Jewish sovereignty, and many Jews are talking about building the last Holy Jewish Temple there. Folks, the time is right. Are you ready for the second coming of the LORD Jesus Christ? Only those who are born again will enter the coming Kingdom. Dear friend, the time is now for you to come to this Christ of the Bible, and be saved. He sacrificed Himself at Calvary being the perfect, and only acceptable atonement for sin. He did this for you dear sinner so your sins can be washed away. Won't you come to Him, and live.

 

Psalms 32:1-2

32 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.

2 Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.

KJV

Psalms 85:1-4

85 Lord , thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.

2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.

3 Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.

4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.

KJV

Peres Says Peace Is Made by Closing the Eyes

by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

(IsraelNN.com) President Shimon Peres told Diaspora Jewish leaders Monday, "You have to close your eyes" to make peace. He also reasoned that a peace agreement with the Palestinian Authority will encourage Sunni Muslims against Ahmadinejad.

Speaking at the annual General Assembly of the United Jewish Committees, he said that "making peace is a little bit like marriage [and] you have to close your eyes and accept what is possible to accept." His audience laughed and applauded.

He also explained his reasoning why surrendering Judea and Samaria to the PA and establishing a new Arab state in their place would have a domino effect on peace in the Middle East.
 
Iran is the only regional country that wants to control the Middle East, President Peres stated. He reasoned that a peace pact with the PA would show Sunni Muslims it does not have to accept Shi'ite dominance by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's faction.

He wants "to run the Middle East, in the name of religion, the octogenarian president continued." The Persians in Iran are, all told, 35 million people. The Iranians are 70 million, half of them minorities, and half are Persians. And it is the Persians who are the producers of the ayatollahs and the fanatic people. They want to control 350 million people [of the Middle East], 90 percent of whom are Sunni."


 

 

 

Closing your eyes is another way of saying do not acknowledge the truth. Ignore what reality demands one must see. Willingly seek the lie over the truth. Dwell in the darkness rather then the light. There is nothing about willingly closing your eyes to a situation that could ever be conscribed as a good thing. I am blind, and know what it is like to go through life with the eyes closed. I would never go through life doing this willingly. Only a fool would paint a picture of blissful living blinding ones self to any situation.

It should be no wonder that the Bible speaks volumes about being in the light rather then the darkness. God always uses the light to reveal truth, and it is always wrong to willingly seek the darkness. Sin is always identified as darkness, and it is clear to me it is sin that in order to have peace with the Arabs the Jews must close their eyes. A peace based on sin is no peace. Making a deal with the devil, and telling the people that they must close their eyes for the supposed peace process to work is absolute foolishness.

Islam does not want peace with the Jews. Anyone who says so must close their eyes to everything the Islamists  say about the Jews. The Iranians repeat boldly before all the world that they are intent on wiping Israel off the map. They want to lead the Middle East into a war of extermination which would massacre all the Jews living in the Holy Land. This is one point upon which the Sunnis, and Shiites agree. Closing the eyes to this reality can only lead to the end of Israel.

Friend, God does not go around with His eyes closed. There is nothing hidden from Him. He knows your life better then you know it yourself. He tells us in the Bible that records are meticulously kept not only of our deeds, but of our very thoughts. The judgment of God will be revealed in the light for all to witness. I pray you are written in the Lambs book of life for it is the only place of refuge when the wrath of God is manifested in absolute righteousness. Friend, come to Christ, and He will manifest His love for you. He will forgive you of all your sin. But, do not play lose with this awesome God of the Bible. His wrath is real, and nothing to close your eyes about.

Revelation 20:11-15

11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

US says report bolsters suspicions of covert Syrian nuke program


Uranium traces not linked to Israeli ordnance

 

The United States said on Friday the recent UN report on an alleged Syrian nuclear site at al-Kibar had hardened suspicions that Syria was building a covert reactor there.

The International Atomic Energy Agency report said that a Syrian complex allegedly
bombed by Israel in September 2007 bore multiple features resembling those of a reactor and UN inspectors had found a significant number of uranium traces at the site. The findings, based on analysis of satellite pictures and soil and water samples taken at the site last June, were not enough to conclude a reactor was there, the IAEA said.

But senior UN officials familiar with the report said the
traces were not from depleted uranium, a hardening agent which Syria had suggested was used in the Israeli munitions.

Syria has not heeded requests for documentation to back up denials of
secret nuclear activity or the IAEA’s repeated requests for visits to three other sites seen as harboring possible evidence linked to Israel's target. All four sites were landscaped to change their appearance and equipment removed - as well as all rubble from the bombed site - after the IAEA asked Syria for access, the report said.

"The report reinforces the assessment of my government that
Syria was secretly building a nuclear reactor in its eastern desert and thereby violating its IAEA (non-proliferation) safeguards obligations," said Gregory Schulte, U.S. ambassador to the UN nuclear monitor. "We hope that [Syria] will not adopt the tactics of hindrance and unhelpfulness that Tehran has so finely honed and that remain so evident in the (IAEA's) latest report," he added.

A separate agency report on Wednesday said Iran was still stonewalling an IAEA probe into alleged atomic bomb research by Tehran.

 


 

 

 

 

Folks, I hope you realize that modern technology within this computer age has opened the door for the worst people of our generation to gain the ability to produce mass destruction. The technology explosion unique to this generation has given every kook, and fanatic the ability to wipe out whole communities of people. The fanatical Islamic barbarians are going to soon become nuclear. It is only time now that is needed. They do not need the smartest scientists to join their fanatical aspirations. All they need is a computer, and they have all the brain power they need. Islamic fanatics are convinced that Allah has given them this gift of computer savvy in order to exterminate the Jews. It should be clear to all that the world politicians are impotent in stopping the flow of nuclear materials to the fanatics. Folks, if the LORD tarries this generation will destroy itself. The fanatics don't care if they die as long as they are pleasing Allah. It must be clear with this obsession toward suicide that Islam is ready to wipe the infidels off the planet even if it means their own death. Much like the Jim Jones fanatics who committed mass suicide so also the same Satanic spirit runs rampant among the Islamists. I suspect President Obama will never finish his term in office before the Islamic fanatics realize their perverted dream of having the ability to wipe Israel off the map at whatever the cost to themselves. We are at the end even if God did not tell us in the Bible that He is about to intervene. The fulfillment of Biblical prophecy is coming not because God is short on longsuffering, but because sin has reached it's climax among fallen mankind. God must intercede during this generation with the return of Christ, or man will destroy himself in his own sin.

Time is short dear friend. God is preparing to remove the true Christians from apostate Christianity. A great separation is about to take place. The hypocrites, and apostates are about to face the wrath of God. All religion is about to be forced to face the truth! The person Jesus Christ is returning to the planet. He is a Jew. He is the only begotten Son of God. It is His righteousness that shall prevail. The traditions, and morality of religion will be replaced with true holiness. The one who can see into the heart will make all the judgments. He shed His own blood as the only perfect sacrifice for sin, and He knows those who have come to Him with all their heart, soul, and might. He can differentiate between those who have come to worthless religion, and those who have come to Him. He knows who has humbled themselves before the Holy God of the Bible, and those who have puffed up themselves into believing the lie that they are good people.

Romans 3:10-12

10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

KJV

This is the reason why Christ had to come the first time. This is why we need a Savior. We can't save ourselves. Sin has so taken control that we are on the road to our own destruction. Were God not to intervene, mankind through sin would destroy itself. That moment in history is here. Only the return of the righteous, and holy Christ can stave the tide. Friend, Christ did not come nor is He coming again for the self-righteous. He opposed the self made righteous religious leaders of His day as He opposes the religious leaders of this generation. Friend, you must come to Christ. Only He has the power to save. Only He can provide a perfect refuge from the wrath to come. Won't you come to this Christ of the Bible, and live?

 

1 Timothy 1:15-16

15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.

16 Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.

KJV

Matthew 9:12-13

12 But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.

13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

KJV

Mark 2:17

17 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

KJV

Romans 5:8-10

8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

KJV
