Death on The Mountains of Israel

Nine Palestinians, including a 10-year-old boy, were killed in the territories over the weekend in the two worst days of violence since the Israel Defense Forces operation in Jenin some three weeks ago. The clashes in the territories yesterday and Friday also left more than 150 Palestinians and 11 Israelis wounded.

At least 10 of the injured Palestinians were reported to be in serious condition. Two more Palestinians died over the weekend of wounds sustained earlier in the week.

Also at the weekend, and for the first time in about a month, Palestinians fired a mortar shell at an Israeli target in the West Bank. There were no reports of injuries in this incident.
 

Palestinian Violence Continues Apace
Security officials reported last night that there had been close to 60 Palestinian attacks on Israeli targets over the Sabbath in what at least one Knesset Member called the "worst day of warfare" during the current year-long round of hostilities. The terrorism continued intensely today as well, while amidst it all, Israel's security cabinet decided to give Yasser Arafat yet another 48 hours to bring quiet.

The weekend attacks included three mortar shells against Gaza communities, and, for the first time, mortars against a community in Judea, namely, Tekoa in eastern Gush Etzion. One child was treated for shock in Gaza following a mortar attack. Ten other Israelis were wounded in other aggressions involving grenades, automatic gunfire, firebombs and rocks. Shooting was reported throughout the morning in Hevron, with two soldiers sustaining light wounds near Beit Hadassah. Last night, Arabs shot at the Jewish towns of N’vei Dekalim, Psagot, Chomesh, and Tapuach. In addition, terrorists shot at two Israeli motorists on the highway from Ma'aleh Adumim to Jerusalem; there were no injuries.
 

The frustration of the militant Islamic terrorists grows as the attack on Israel fizzles. The death of militant Islam on the mountains of Israel is having the first pictures being portrayed to this world. The terrorist can take out the World Trade Center, and the Pentagon,  but are frustrated in their greatest goal which is to kill the Jews of Israel - any Jews - little kindergarten children Jews - baby girl Jews - the easiest to kill Jews of all in Israel. They claim they are upholding the honor of Allah, but it seems pitifully apparent that Allah sleeps through their efforts. He certainly was asleep this past weekend! A generation raised on hate seems to care little if Allah is awake or sleeping. They will continue to do all they can to kill the Jews of Israel. They will also continue to die on the mountains of Israel by the hand of the God of the Bible! They, their wives, their children, all,  who are infected with the virus of hate for God's chosen people! All who's hearts are unchangeable to the prospect of a Jewish King bringing eternal peace to this world. The mountains of Israel will stand as an ensign to the coming wrath of the God of the Bible. The wrath of the lamb!

Israel Safe First

Ezek 38:8
8After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.
KJV
 

Then Invading Islam - North, East, South


Ezek 39:2
2And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:
KJV
 


Ezek 39:4
4Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.
KJV
 


Ezek 39:17
17And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.
KJV

Sukkot  - remembrance of Israel's deliverance from Egypt.
October 2 - October 10, 2001

The Festival of Booths - with Lulav and Etrog in hand, we camp out under the stars seven days and remember that God is our ultimate protection
 

Sukkot is a 7-day holiday. We build a temporary booth called a "Sukkah" where we eat, sleep and shmuze for the entire week. Each day we also wave the Four Species of plants, in celebration of God's gift of bounty.

During the first day (or first two days outside of Israel) no creative activity is permitted. This is similar to Shabbat, with the exception of cooking from an existing flame, which is permitted on Yom Tov.

The remaining days of Sukkot are called Chol HaMoed, during which creative work activities are permitted. However, in keeping with the spirit of the holiday, we try to avoid any work that could just as well be delayed until after the week of Sukkot.

The last day of Sukkot is called Hoshana Raba. Jewish tradition records that the heavenly decrees made on Rosh Hashana (and sealed on Yom Kippur) are actually sent out on Hoshana Raba. The main book of Kabbalah, the Zohar, also says that the nations of the world are judged on this day.

The day immediately following Sukkot is also a Yom Tov, called Shmini Atzeret ("Eighth Day of Assembly"). Outside of Israel, this Yom Tov extends two days, with the second day designated as Simchat Torah. This is when we finish reading the final portion of the Torah and begin a new cycle. We dance around the synagogue, holding the Torah scrolls, expressing joy in our treasured Torah.

 

The Wall!

Wall's strength to be checked after worshiper injured
By Etgar Lefkovits

JERUSALEM (October 1) - A group of engineers, archeologists, and rabbis will survey the sturdiness of the Western Wall next week, after a fist-sized stone tumbled down on a Jewish worshiper on Friday morning, the rabbi of the Western Wall said yesterday.

"We are talking about a long-term problem that is also fraught with halachic problems," Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitch said yesterday, after Religious Affairs Minister Asher Ohana allocated an immediate NIS 100,000 for any needed work to buttress any unstable stones.

Rabinovitch said that a group of experts will survey the site immediately after Succot.

He noted that stones have fallen from the Wall in the past, and that the problem has been exacerbated by birds who make their nests in areas inside the wall where stones have already fallen.

A partial survey of the Wall's sturdiness undertaken before Passover, but was curtailed by the sudden death of the engineer who was conducting the tests.

Rabinovitch said that despite the Jewish laws banning any work being done to the most revered site for Jewish worship, preserving human life would overrule any such decrees.

In any case, the Chief Rabbinate would be consulted for approval when the engineers make their recommendations, he said.

Rabinovitch said that he hoped the work would not necessitate ascending the Temple Mount, which he said might mix in with what he termed a "political argument." But leading archeologists have said unequivocally that no serious work could be done to buttress the Western Wall without doing it from both the outside and inside.

"Abandoning the Temple Mount to the Islamic Wakf, and the lack of any proper archeological supervision at the site, will only lead to disaster. The question is not if but when," said Dr. Eilat Mazar of Hebrew University's archeology department, and a leading member of the Committee Against the Destruction of Antiquities on the Temple Mount.

Indeed, on another side of the ancient roughly 2,000-year old Herodian wall that surrounded the Second Temple, the situation is even more severe.

For several months now, an ominous 20 meter-wide bulge has been protruding on the southern side of the wall, likely due to past Wakf work on Solomon's Stables, located just above.

The Antiquities Authority has conducted tests on that section of the walls which sources say show it is "intermediate danger" of collapse. But cognizant of the political sensitivities of the area, the Antiquities Authority has repeatedly declined comment on the whole issue.

The Wall that must come down! It is the wall that Pharisaic Judaism has built! It is the wall that separates the Jew from the God of the Bible. The line to which I refer is in every picture of the wall. It is where the foreheads of generations of individual Jews have pressed as they tried to pray to God. How sad that they have put a wall between themselves, and their God. How sad they made a wall their most holy possession rather then their coming Messiah and King!. On the other side of that wall is the Temple Mount. God has promised that soon He will change the hearts of stone to hearts of flesh. Soon the Jews will tear down this wall as they open the way to the Temple Mount where Jesus Christ will sit on His throne as King of the Jews - as King of Kings! It will take the great tribulation, the seventieth week of Daniel, but the hearts of the Jews will change.

A dispensational change is near. The true Church of born again believers are about to step aside for the future glory of Israel. This wall will come down! I believe the Two Witnesses of Revelation chapter 11 will order it cleared away as they supervise the building of Ezekiel's Temple (Ezekiel chapters 40 -48). Like John the Baptist, these Two Witnesses will proclaim the coming of the Kingdom! They will build the Third Jewish Temple, and establish proper worship where the blood of sacrifice will again be presented to the world! They will prepare the way for the only living sacrificial lamb acceptable to God to establish His throne!

Matt 3:1-2
3:1In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,

2And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
KJV

Matt 4:17
17From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand
KJV

Matt 7:20-23
20Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
KJV

LAWS OF THE FOUR SPECIES

By: Rabbi Shraga Simmons

The Torah says:

"You shall take... the beautiful fruit (Esrog), a palm frond (Lulav), myrtle twigs and willow branches of the stream -- and rejoice for seven days before the Lord your God." (Leviticus 23:40)

On Sukkot, we bind all the branches together -- two willows on the left, one palm branch in the center, and three myrtles on the right. We hold this bundle in our right hand, and then lift them together with the Esrog. We then shake them all together, three times in each direction: front, right, back, left, up and down. (Sefardim and Chassidim have a different custom for the order.) This mitzvah should be performed during the daytime, each of the seven days of Sukkot (except for Shabbat).

Before waving the four species, we say the following blessing:

"Baruch ata Adonoy, Elo-heinu Melech ha'olam, asher kid'shanu bi'mitzvo-sav, vi'tzivanu al ni-tilas lulav."

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who sanctified us with His mitzvot, and instructed us to raise up the Lulav.

To be valid for the mitzvah, the four species must meet certain requirements. Since the details are many and technical, it is not recommended to search through the forest on your own for these species! (Particularly the Esrog, which can easily be confused with a lemon.) A better idea is to purchase a complete set from a reliable distributor -- like e-esrog.com. Your local Jewish bookstore may have a "Four Species Set" with a rabbinical seal certifying their validity.


Hate for the Jew by Islam is very apparent today. These attacks come during Sukkot when Judaism celebrates deliverance from Egypt, and their journey to the Promised Land. There was resistance to Israel's entrance back then, as there is resistance to Israel's second return today! The Palestinians struggle with a decision which will soon be pressed upon the rest of the world at Armageddon. Do we submit to God's irresistible plan to bless Israel through their soon coming King? Do we rejoice with Israel as God's chosen people? Or, do we resist! Do we fight God's decision on this matter! Do we fight against the Lamb?

The world will soon see the futility of fighting against God. If Ezekiel 38 & 39 are about to find fulfillment, then God's judgment on the militant Islamic world is about to become the Last Jihad - the end of Islam forever. It will go the way of those who resisted God's plan in the past. Sukkot will be victoriously celebrated by the Jews of Israel long after Islam has gone the way of the Hittites and all others who resisted and rejected the God of the Bible.

Josh 1:1-6
1:1Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, saying,

2Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel.

3Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.

4From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast.

5There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

6Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.
KJV

ADDRESS BY ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER ARIEL SHARON

ICEJ NEWS - 10/02/2001
TO THE CHRISTIAN CELEBRATION OF THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES, SPONSORED BY THE INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN EMBASSY JERUSALEM, TUESDAY, 2 OCTOBER 2001

Thank you very much for that warm and friendly reception.

I wanted to spend all the evening with you today, but as you know we are in the middle of a wave of acts of terror. And tonight, on my way here, [there] was another terrible act of terror for a Jewish settlement, community; civilians were attacked. We know by now we have two causalities dead, 7 injured, some of them in a critical situation. That’s really what happened. And therefore I will apologize that I will not be able to spend the whole evening with you. I really wanted so much to be today with you. We know your friendship. We appreciate your friendship. We need your friendship.

I would like to welcome you in Jerusalem, the capital of the Jewish people for more than three thousand years, since King David that was crowned in Hebron and ruled Israel for seven and a half years. From there [he] moved his capital to Jerusalem. Jerusalem – the capital of the Jewish people and the united and undivided capital of the state of Israel forever.

Talking to you, I know that I even don’t have to say that Jerusalem and the Land of Israel are holy to the Jews, to the Christians and to the Muslims, but promised only to the Jews. Jerusalem - it’s easy to talk to you, you know the Bible - Jerusalem is mentioned in the Bible as Jerusalem 676 times, and as Zion 143 times. And King David is mentioned in the Bible 1,023 times.

The Temple Mount already [was] mentioned and was called the Temple Mount - Har Habayit - by the prophets Jeremiah and Isaiah. And the Christian world has been using this term of “Temple Mount” for almost 2,000 years now. The Temple Mount that is the heart of the Jewish people. And they have also to remember that only since we liberated east Jerusalem, there is freedom of access and freedom of worship to every nation, to every religion.

I know I don’t have to tell you that. You know that because you are walking in the Land of Israel while holding the Bible in your hand, and the one who holds the Bible does not need a guidebook.

Here in the Land of Israel, the biblical names are used today. Jerusalem is Jerusalem. Jordan River is HaYarden, and Bethlehem is Beit Lechem. Hebron is Hevron. And Shiloh and Bethel and Rachel’s Tomb - are using the same names, the same biblical names. Jericho and so on. And then Mt. Tabor is Har Tabor, and Mt. Gilboa is Har Gilboa, and Mt. Carmel is Har Carmel. The Sea of Galilee is the Sea of Galilee. And Nazareth. All the places kept their biblical names. ......
 

'Let us reorder this world'

The Guardian


Tony Blair yesterday turned his battle against the terrorists who ravaged New York into a far wider struggle for a new world order that would uphold human dignity and social justice "from the slums of Gaza to the mountain ranges of Afghanistan".

This sounds like what is going to happen when the Anti-Christ takes control. "A New World Order" will give the Anti-Christ the forum he needs to quickly step into control. He will make the decisions. He will determine the direction this world will go under the asepses of upholding human dignity and social justice. He will claim his social justice will bring world peace. I'm sure it will mimic the social gospel kind of justice found in the YMCA and the Salvation Army, They do their best to offend no one. They dare not speak of repentance, and turning to the only savior Jesus Christ for fear of offending. Their testimony to the Biblical gospel message has long ago disappeared. It is a justice that sounds good to the worldly, but never works. It is man's concept of justice not God's. Biblical justice is singular in it's application. Either submit to God's plan of salvation through Christ, or be damned for all eternity. It is an offensive message to this world of sin and social compromise, but it is God's Biblical justice in action.

It is quite possible the outcome of September 11th will be this "New World Order" of which Tony Blair refers? A world wide humanistic social justice system controlled by the Anti-Christ that mocks Biblical justice. There is only one who can bring in true Biblical justice and eternal peace. It will come only in Israel at Jerusalem from the Temple Mount.

Isa 42:1-5
42:1Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.

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

3A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.

4He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.

5Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:
KJV

Matt 12:16-21
16And charged them that they should not make him known:

17That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,

18Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.

19He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.

20A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.

21And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.
KJV

The Radical Feminists Raise their Head

Show their Heart

Thobani's disgusting statement
 
L. IAN MACDONALD  
Montreal Gazette

The moral-equivalency crowd was out in force Monday at a feminist conference in Ottawa where Sunera Thobani said United States foreign policy was "soaked in blood."

Thobani, a former president of the National Action Committee on the Status of Women, also called the U.S. "the most dangerous and powerful global force unleashing horrific levels of violence."

So that's it. The Americans got what was coming to them. Six thousand people are dead under the rubble of the World Trade Centre. Guilty of going to work in the morning, they obviously deserved their terrible fate. Hundreds of thousands more have lost their jobs, and it's all their fault.

Perhaps Thobani could explain her views to the widowed spouses, orphaned children, broken families and grieving communities, including dozens in Canada. Perhaps she could elaborate her position to the people who have been thrown out of work, including thousands of Canadians.

 

In a real sense we all as sinners deserve what we get, and Sunera Thobani who apparently rejects Christ and the Bible will also receive a just recompense for all she has ever done or said. A day of judgment is declared in the Bible. Only those written down in the Lamb's book of life will be exempt. They will have been washed clean in the blood, and changed forever - made perfect by the very power of God.

Did those who died on September 11th deserve such a judgment more then the others? Hear what Christ taught on the matter!

Luke 13:1-5
13:1There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.

2And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things?

3I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

4Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?

5I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
KJV
 

(The message of John the Baptist!)

Sunera Thobani will face an irresistible Judgment as long as she goes into eternity without Christ. All her works - all acts, words, and even thoughts will be exposed by the God of the Bible who has meticulously kept all the records. He will judge accordingly!

Rev 20:11-15
11And 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.

12And 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.

13And 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.

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

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

Three killed, 16 hurt in Afula terror attack
By David Rudge

JERUSALEM (October 5) - A Palestinian terrorist disguised as an IDF paratrooper killed one person, fatally wounded two others, and injured several more at Afula's central bus station yesterday before being shot dead by members of a police security unit.
 

Sharon: We won't be another Czechoslovakia
By Arieh O'Sullivan

JERUSALEM (October 5) - Pressured by daily deadly terror attacks, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon last night said all attempts to reach a cease-fire have failed and he has ordered the security forces into action against Palestinian terrorism.

"We can rely only on ourselves. And from today forward, we will only rely on ourselves," Sharon said.

Speaking after the terror attack in Afula, which left three dead, Sharon called on the West not to "appease" the Arab world by abandoning Israel in the war on terror.

"Today Israel suffered another murderous Palestinian terrorist attack which took a heavy toll," Sharon said. "All of our efforts to reach a cease-fire have been torpedoed by the Palestinians. Fire did not cease, not even for one day."

Speaking at a press conference in Tel Aviv last night, Sharon said the cabinet has instructed the security forces to take "all necessary measures" to bring full security.

"We are currently in the midst of a complex and difficult political campaign. I call on the Western democracies and primarily on the leader of the free world, the United States: Do not repeat the dreadful mistake of 1938, when enlightened European democracies decided to sacrifice Czechoslovakia for a convenient temporary solution. Do not try to appease the Arabs at our expense. This is unacceptable to us. Israel will not be Czechoslovakia. Israel will fight terrorism."

"There is no good terrorism and bad terrorism," Sharon said. "It is worse than murder. We have been fighting terrorism for over 100 years. Unfortunately, there is no swift and immediate solution. But if united we confront this terrorism, we will be able to overcome it and bring peace. And we shall overcome."
 

"We can rely only on ourselves. And from today forward, we will only rely on ourselves,"  These words will come back to haunt Israel. They already sense their survival will never be them! It will be their God! These words of Sharon are correct, but will not be followed. Already the US is selling out to the UN for convenience. A staff of straw (reeds) is being formulated for Israel to lean upon. It will only break! The God of the Bible wants Israel to lean upon Him. and Him alone. A secular Israel will always be looking for something secular to lean upon. The secular Israel of Jeremiah's and Ezekiel's day leaned on their hope in Egypt. This generation of secular Judaism is being prepared to lean on the UN. It will fail Israel as miserably as Egypt did so long ago.  The words of the present leader of secular Israel will prove to be more right then he ever imagined.

The Bible says a leader of secular Israel is waiting in the wings (probably this very moment). I need not say I saw him like the actors (Charismatic's) on TV that claim they can see some miraculous healing taking place. I already know what he looks like because he was described by the second Prophet of the First return.  This character has never come on the Israeli scene to date. He will oppose the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11 and their 144,000 celibate faithful Jewish men. He will continually tell the secular Jews to follow him in worldly wisdom rather then by sacrificial faith as will be required of spiritual Jews. After the Two Witnesses are murdered by the Anti-Christ, this Idol Shepherd will think he can broker a secular peace with the Anti-Christ. It will prove similar to making peace with Hitler, but far worse. The faithful spiritual Jews will flee for the wilderness during the last 3 1/2 years of the tribulation. The secular Jews will find the holocaust a cake walk in what the Anti-Christ will do to them. The Idol Shepard will prove to be nothing more then the worst collaborator of all history as he sells out his own people for his own gain.  The end however, will turn the hearts of many secular Jews to their Messiah. The Lord Jesus Christ will deliver! He will redeem! He will save! It's all in the Bible! There is no need for the Charismatic mystics and soothsayers.

Zech 11:15-17
15And the LORD said unto me, Take unto thee yet the instruments of a foolish shepherd.

16For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces.

17
Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.
KJV

IDF SEIZES TWO PALESTINIAN NEIGHBORHOODS IN HEBRON

Over Thursday night, the IDF seized the Abu Sneneh and A-Sheikh neighborhoods, parts of PA-ruled Hebron. Israeli sources said they would remain there for an indefinite period. The areas were sources of Palestinian fire into the Jewish enclave in recent days, which wounded two women Wednesday. Palestinians report 6 killed and over 100 injured in the IDF action. Firefights continued Friday morning.
 

The Palestinians are doing their best to expel the Jews from Israel. They are encouraged by the historical record of others:

This time the Jews are turning the tables. This time the God of the Bible  has put His hand on events. This time the Jews will not be expelled, but on the contrary will conquer. This time the Jew is in his own land! The Holy Land! The Promised Land! This time God has put His plan for the future glory of Israel into action!

Isa 46:13-47:1
13I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry: and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory.
KJV

Matt 19:28
28And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
KJV

Luke 2:25-33
25And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.
26And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ.
27And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law,
28Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said,
29Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:
30For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
31Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
32A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.
33And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.
KJV

The Offensive War has Begun

Bin Laden Says No Peace for U.S. Until Palestine Free

DUBAI (Reuters) - Osama bin Laden (news - web sites), in his first verified statement since the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States, swore in videotaped remarks broadcast Sunday that the United States would not live in peace until ``peace reigns in Palestine.''

``America has been filled with horror from north to south and east to west, and thanks be to God what America is tasting now is only a copy of what we have tasted,'' he said in a statement to Qatar's al-Jazeera television, referring to the attacks in the United States that left about 6,000 people dead or missing.

``Our Islamic nation has been tasting the same for more 80 years,'' he said, adding President Bush (news - web sites) was the ``head of the infidels.''

``God has blessed a group of vanguard Muslims to destroy America ... and may God bless them and allot them a place in heaven.''

``I swear to God to that America will not live in peace before peace reigns in Palestine,'' he said.

Jazeera said the statement was videotaped after Sept. 11 but did not give a specific date. An aide to bin Laden, Ayman Zawahri, urged Muslims to resist America and another aide said the attacks were because America supported Israel's occupation of Arab lands.

Bin Laden wants Israel destroyed. His hate for a Jewish Jerusalem is no secret. Soon his lofty words on behalf of his no-god will prove their worth. The Bible has already declared the fate of any survivors who hate a Jewish Jerusalem as does bin Laden!

Zech 14:12
12And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.
KJV
 

Need I, or anyone else say more? So much for his "thanks be to God," or allotments in heaven!

 

Bin Laden is only the foreshadow of what is to come. An even greater blasphemer is soon to make bin Laden a kindergartener.

Rev 13:5-9
5And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

6And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

7And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

8And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

9If any man have an ear, let him hear.
KJV

Thwarting Terrorism that Works

Kibbutz man dies confronting bomber
By David Rudge

SHLUHOT (October 8) - A Palestinian suicide bomber blew himself up near the entrance to Kibbutz Shluhot in the Beit She'an Valley yesterday morning, killing kibbutz member Yair Mordechai.

Mordechai, 43, who was apparently driving into the kibbutz around 8:15 a.m., had stopped alongside the terrorist and appeared to be questioning him when the explosion occurred.

It is not known whether the young bomber, reported to be from a village in the Jenin area, had stopped the car to ask directions or whether Mordechai had stopped because the man aroused his suspicions.

Police believe that, in any event, Mordechai apparently had asked questions that made the terrorist suspect he had been exposed, and he detonated the bomb strapped to his body.
 

It is sad that Yair Mordechai has died, but he is the key to how terrorism is defeated. The passengers who stopped the White House bombers flight are of the same metal. It is average folks in every day situations showing concern for their fellows. They are not Rambo's, but just the opposite. They are genuinely concerned for the welfare of their neighbors. Where others pass by - they stop (the good Samaritans of this world). They are motivated by love not hate. They are not those who cause the road rage on our highways, but rather are courteous drivers concerned for their neighbors. They do not condone bad behavior. When confronted with evil, they are far from shrinking violets. They turn in the drug dealers, and drunk drivers. They are not shy to stand for righteousness. They exhibit what the Lord Jesus Christ said was the most important precept in Christianity and Judaism. It is not what makes one a Christian or a Jew, but it does represent the highest achievement to which a man can rise. IT is what we should expect in action every day from submitted "born again" Christians setting the lead for others in righteousness.

Matt 22:36-40
36Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38This is the first and great commandment.

39And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
KJV

 

Deut 6:4-13
4Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
5And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
6And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
7And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
8And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
9And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
10And it shall be, when the LORD thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildedst not,
11And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full;
12Then beware lest thou forget the LORD, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
13Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name.
KJV

Sukkot - the last day

But on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you gather in the crop of the land, you shall celebrate God's festival for a seven day period ... You shall take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of a citron tree, the branches of date palms, twigs of a plaited tree, and brook willows; and you shall rejoice before the Lord, your God, for a seven day period. (Leviticus 23: 39-40)

SHMINI ATZERET AND SIMCHAT TORAH

By: Rabbi Shraga Simmons


Each year God has a weeklong celebration called "Sukkot." In ancient times in Jerusalem, the service in the Holy Temple during the week of Sukkot featured a total of 70 bull offerings. This, the Talmud explains, corresponds to each of the 70 nations of the world. The Temple was not just for Jews. When King Solomon built the Temple, he specifically asked God to heed the prayer of non-Jews who comes to the Temple (1-Kings 8:41-43). And the prophet Isaiah refers to the Temple as a "House for all nations" (Isaiah 56:7).

The Temple was the universal center of spirituality, a concentrated point where God-consciousness filtered down into the world. In fact, the Talmud says that if the Romans would have realized how much benefit they themselves were getting from the Temple, they never would have destroyed it!

And then, at the end of Sukkot, God added a special day. It's called Shmini Atzeret, literally the "Eighth Day of Assembly". On that day, only one bull was offered -- representing the Jewish people. It is a day of great intimacy with our Creator, as He asks His Jewish children to remain with him for extra personal time together. (Talmud - Sukkot 55b)

Shmini Atzeret is a full public holiday, as described in Leviticus 23:36. Even though it immediately follows the seven-day Sukkot festival and is often considered part of Sukkot, it is, in fact, a separate holiday. This means that the She'hechiyanu blessing is recited, and the obligation to sit in the Sukkah does not apply.


 

 

THE SOURCE OF JOY

When the Temple stood the high point of this joy was the Simchat Beit Hashueva, the celebration of "the drawing of the waters." The Mishna states that it was impossible for someone who has never experienced this celebration to truly appreciate the full power of the experience of joy.

There is an amazing passage in the Mishna that describes this ceremony in detail as it took place near the end of the second Temple era in the days of Hilel. Amid the description we find the following odd statement:

When the celebrants in the [second] Temple reached the eastern gate they turned their faces towards the west (the location of the sanctuary and the Holy of Holies) and said, "Our forefathers when they were in this place [first Temple] turned their backs to the sanctuary and their faces toward the east and bowed to the rising sun in the east; but our eyes are turned to God." (Talmud, Sukka, 51b)

Here is Israel, in the midst of celebrating their closeness to God in His Temple, reminding God of their own iniquities and the destruction of His first Temple

Here is the reason God must deal with us by grace. The very best of us throughout history always fail. It is the sacrifice of Christ. The blood that provides the mechanism by which grace can operate. Only His pure holy blood can appease the wrath of God against sin. The power in His blood can't be bought or earned, but it can be freely accepted as a gift. Soon, another Jewish Temple will again demonstrate to secular Israel and the world the honorable remembrance of that single blood sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Soon, He will come again to Jerusalem. This time not as the suffering savior, but rather the conquering King. Grace will always be the offer for His blood is beyond price. How sad that most of the world rejects His grace, and so the power in the blood is never applied.

Rom 6:23-7:1
23For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
KJV

Eph 2:8
8For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
KJV

Matt 26:27-28
27And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;

28For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
KJV

 

Isa 55:1-3
55:1Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

2Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

3Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
KJV

CAIRO, Egypt – Al-Qaida spokesman urges all Muslims to wage holy war against Americans, saying U.S. interests are everywhere.

(12:45) PA breaks up bin-Laden demonstration in Gaza

Despite calls by Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat forbidding public shows of Palestinian support for Osama bin-Laden, PA police in Gaza City fired tear gas, wielded clubs and shot several live rounds in the air to keep back about 150 Islamic University students chanting: "Long live Palestine, long live Afghanistan, long live Islam."

Several demonstrators shouted "Bin-Laden, bin-Laden."

Police forced journalists to leave the area, apparently fearing fearing possible western reaction to scenes of popular support for bin-Laden, similar to joyous expressions in Palestinian cities in the West Bank and Gaza in the wake of the terror attacks against the US several weeks ago.

Bin-Laden has called for driving Israel out of the Middle East before. However, his main emphasis has been on forcing US troops out of his native Saudi Arabia, home to Islam's holiest shrines.

Palestinian Authority Collapsing - Islam Taking New Face

Special to World Tribune.com

MIDDLE EAST NEWSLINE

Wednesday, October 10, 2001

 

GAZA — The Palestinian Authority is on emergency alert amid unprecedented unrest against the rule of chairman Yasser Arafat.

Officials said the PA has boosted security throughout the West Bank and Gaza amid riots in several cities. At least three people were killed and a dozen people were injured in clashes since Monday.

Israeli sources said the PA has asked the Jewish state for riot control systems. The sources said Israel has not responded to the request.

The PA has shut down several universities and deployed officers in major intersections to preserve order. Officials said the concern is that opposition elements will join to foment unrest against the Arafat regime.

The rioters have torched two Palestinian police stations and attempted to attack other facilities throughout the Gaza Strip. Opposition groups have blamed PA police chief Brig. Gen. Ghazi Jabali for the killings and have called for his dismissal.

"The leadership regrets these painful incidents," a PA statement said. "It calls on all national and Islamic forces to stand firm against elements who are trying to distort our strong national unity."

The violence began on Monday when university students held pro-Bin Laden demonstrations in Gaza City. Police used tear gas to disperse the demonstrators.

When that failed police opened fire on the demonstrators, some of them who were seen holding firearms. Three people were killed and 12 were injured.

The riots spread to other cities in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. In some cases, Palestinians attacked police stations. In all, several dozen people were injured.

Arafat was not in Gaza at the time. He was on tour of the Middle East and the Gulf.

The PA has increased security in Gaza. They also banned media coverage of demonstrations.

But the unrest continued on Tuesday. About 1,500 students marched in support of Bin Laden at Nablus's An Najah University.

Also in Nablus, a Palestinian detained on charges of collaborating with Israel was found dead. The Palestinian Human Rights Monitoring Group said this was 27th Palestinian to die in custody since 1994.

Arafat is soon to become a forgotten memory unless he should change colors again? Islam is changing quickly. The Islamic Gog of the North are taking the lead as prophesied by Ezekiel. Arafat can fight against this irresistible movement or join it. He has changed his colors in the past! The Islamic invasion of Israel seems to be forming fast. It will be the Last Jihad, and end of militant Islam forever (read Ezekiel 39). The heart of an Islam filled with hate for the Jew and Jew lovers is now emerging as the dominant element of Islam. This generation has been raised for martyrdom from their perspective - ripe for judgment from God's perspective. I'm sure there will be much ebb and flow, but the end will be invasion!

Ezek 39:1-5
39:1Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

2And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:

3And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.

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

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

ARAFAT ON HOT SEAT FOR PUTTING DOWN PROTESTS

By URI DAN and ANDY GELLER



October 11, 2001 -- Militant Islamic groups yesterday tore into Yasser Arafat's police as well as his leadership of the Palestinian Authority after Palestinian cops used force to put down a rally supporting Osama bin Laden.

Most of the anger was directed at police handling of Monday's near-riot at the Islamic University in Gaza City, where two people were killed and dozens injured.

But there was also criticism of Arafat's Palestinian Authority.

"There is strong anger against the Palestinian Authority," said Mahmoud Zahar, a leader of the militant Hamas movement.

Zahar said that, while Hamas does not want a confrontation with the Palestinian Authority, "the majority of [Palestinians] are not accepting the [Authority's] policies nowadays."

Arafat's police force used guns, clubs and tear gas to battle hundreds of protesters, mostly Hamas supporters, armed with guns and stones.

The police said masked gunmen opened fire from inside the university and were responsible for the two deaths.

But witnesses blamed the police.

The militant group Islamic Jihad demanded that Arafat investigate the shootings and charge those responsible.

"After one year of the uprising, the Palestinian Authority has returned to its rule as a police force that defends Israeli security and is directing its fire at the holy warriors in Palestine," it charged.

Sami Rifranji, whose 13-year-old nephew, Abdullah Rigranji, was killed in the violence, also blasted the police.

"We are so angry and condemn completely the Palestinian police for using live bullets," the uncle said.

It seems ironic that the Palestinian Arabs can kill 13 year old Arab children who are rioting, but when it is Israeli bullets the honor of Allah comes into play? Death at the hands of the Jews is sin, but death at the hands of Arabs is excusable, or understandable, or acceptable? Religious/Political declarations can never be the measure of justice in this world. Wasted life is the real tragedy in these early deaths. Lives thrown away for nothing but the politics of others is sin of the darkest hue. The Bible predicts a 7 year Tribulation (almost here) when life will become worthless to the politicians. The population of this earth will drop by fourths and thirds in a short period of time, then again, and again. Death will rule during the reign of the Anti-Christ. This world will choose the road of self-destruction in the Anti-Christ. Many will die supporting the Anti-Christ, many others will die as victims, death will come to many because this world will be ripe for judgment, but some will die as martyrs for the sake of Christ.  These martyrs will be the only ones who will die an honorable death during the Tribulation.

In the end it is only those whom the God of the Bible declares His martyrs that will gain honor in death. The rest will be wasted life for the cause of sin. Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
 

Rev 6:8-7:1
8And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
9And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
10And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
11And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
12And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
13And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
14And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
15And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
16And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
17For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
KJV

PILE OF RUBBLE

An 11th grade Palestinian Authority textbook describes the inevitable victory of Islam over the West with chilling words, in light of the World Trade Center horror:

"...We do not claim that the collapse of Western civilization, and the transfer of the center of civilization to us [Islam] will happen in the next decade. Nevertheless [Western civilization] has begun to collapse and to become a pile of rubble."

Let your local newspaper and TV editors know about the anti-American incitement being fed to Palestinian schoolchildren.

Islam Means Peace

Islam means peace through submission to Allah—so Muslims tell us non-Muslims. They frequently go further and say that this peace really denotes peace within a person and that this peace radiates outward to be instantiated as peace within a society, a nation, and eventually the world. What a beautiful thought, but is it the reality?

Fundamentalist Muslims inspired by their love of Islam with Qur’ans in their suitcases hijacked nonmilitary planes boarded with civilians and cowardly crashed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

REPORTS: BUSH AGREED TO A PALESTINIAN STATE IN THE HEART OF ISRAEL
According to an Israeli expert on global Islam, recent reports that
Washington agreed to back a Palestinian State with Jerusalem as its capital
constitute more than a diplomatic manoeuvre aimed at shoring up Arab support
for the current US-led war against terror.
 

It seems to me those who desire a Palestinian State within Israel as the way to peace are like the foolish folks who desire the Day of the LORD out of their own ignorance.

Amos 5:18-20
18Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light.

19As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him.

20Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?
KJV

(16:40) Syria supports Palestinian terrorism

Syria, the newly elected member of the UN Security Council, said today that the Palestinians have the right to use any means to resist Israeli occupation, and these actions cannot be referred to as terrorism.

Syrian Foreign Minister Farouk Shara made this declaration in an interview with the Italian newspaper, Couriera della Sera, Israel Radio reported.

Shara said that whoever kills defenseless people is a terrorist, and whoever fights against the Israeli occupier is an opponent of occupation.

Last night US Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage said the US does not rule out military action against countries like Syria, if they do not fulfill the obligations of the international coalition against terrorism.
 

These militant Islamic's have a message for the gullible, but then tell the truth for their cohorts. It is nothing new that the true Syrian concept of terrorism does not include the death of Jews or Jew lovers. That kind of terrorist murder is defined religiously as opposing the occupation. I'm not sure how they would categorize that 13 year old Arab boy murdered the other day by the Palestinians for supporting bin Laden? Was he a martyr, or just a fool who died for nothing? Did he make Allah Great, or can't Allah be glorified by his death? Is there one Allah for the Palestinians, another for the supporters of bin Laden, and another for the Syrians? Or, is there just no Allah at all!

The God of the Bible has always maintained that a house divided can't stand. The Bible has always disowned all the manipulators through all ages who have tried to use the Bible for their own ends. Today a new Christianity is being presented for the lukewarm which no longer separates from apostasy. The Catholic, Charismatic, Protestant, Evangelical, Baptist are all blended together. Today's Christianity is also a house as divided and confused as Islam. It is ripe for judgment.

Matt 12:22-28
22Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.
23And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David?
24But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.
25And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
26And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?
27And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.
28But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.
KJV

(07:55) Mastermind of disco suicide bombing shot dead
By Arieh O'Sullivan

An elite IDF sniper unit this morning shot dead Abdel  Rahman Hamad, 33, a senior Hamas leader in the Kalkilya
area.

Hamad was on the roof of his house when he was struck  by two bullets in the chest, the governor of Kalkilya,
Mustafa Malki said.

Military sources said Hamad had been responsible for dispatching the suicide bomber who blew himself up at Tel Aviv's Dolphinarium in June 1 killing 23 young Israelis and a suicide bombing at the Neveh Yamin gas station which killed two Israeli children.

The sources said that Hamad had been planning more bombings and his name was on a list of terror masterminds that was given to the Palestinians with demands he be arrested.

The PA had detained Hamad after the Dolphinarium bombing but  released him on August 5 after which he immediately organized a number of suicide bombings that were to have take place in coming days, military sources said.

"The assassination today is a clear indicator that all the Israeli claims that they want to achieve peace and uphold the cease-fire are just lies," said Palestinian Information Minister Yasser Abed Rabbo.
 

Judg 3:15-30
15But when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, the LORD raised them up a deliverer, Ehud the son of Gera, a Benjamite, a man lefthanded: and by him the children of Israel sent a present unto Eglon the king of Moab.
16But Ehud made him a dagger which had two edges, of a cubit length; and he did gird it under his raiment upon his right thigh.
17And he brought the present unto Eglon king of Moab: and Eglon was a very fat man.
18And when he had made an end to offer the present, he sent away the people that bare the present.
19But he himself turned again from the quarries that were by Gilgal, and said, I have a secret errand unto thee, O king: who said, Keep silence. And all that stood by him went out from him.
20And Ehud came unto him; and he was sitting in a summer parlour, which he had for himself alone. And Ehud said, I have a message from God unto thee. And he arose out of his seat.
21And Ehud put forth his left hand, and took the dagger from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly:
22And the haft also went in after the blade; and the fat closed upon the blade, so that he could not draw the dagger out of his belly; and the dirt came out.
23Then Ehud went forth through the porch, and shut the doors of the parlour upon him, and locked them.
24When he was gone out, his servants came; and when they saw that, behold, the doors of the parlour were locked, they said, Surely he covereth his feet in his summer chamber.
25And they tarried till they were ashamed: and, behold, he opened not the doors of the parlour; therefore they took a key, and opened them: and, behold, their lord was fallen down dead on the earth.
26And Ehud escaped while they tarried, and passed beyond the quarries, and escaped unto Seirath.
27And it came to pass, when he was come, that he blew a trumpet in the mountain of Ephraim, and the children of Israel went down with him from the mount, and he before them.
28And he said unto them, Follow after me: for the LORD hath delivered your enemies the Moabites into your hand. And they went down after him, and took the fords of Jordan toward Moab, and suffered not a man to pass over.
29And they slew of Moab at that time about ten thousand men, all lusty, and all men of valour; and there escaped not a man.
30So Moab was subdued that day under the hand of Israel. And the land had rest fourscore years.
KJV
 

There is no need for much comment today. Ehud remains alive and well in Israel. Abdel  Rahman Hamad received his message from the God of the Bible this day. He cared not about the children he targeted for murder. His only criteria was that they be Jewish. The guilt of all the children he murdered was only that they were Jewish!!! The world is a better place with the death of Abdel  Rahman Hamad.

Invasion Israel from the South

At least 18 killed in anti-U.S. protest; hundreds possibly dead

By Jeff Koinange
Lagos Bureau

LAGOS, Nigeria (CNN) -- Authorities in the northern Nigerian city of Kano confirmed at least 18 dead Sunday, after two days of clashes between police and anti-U.S. protesters. Others said hundreds may have died.

By Sunday night, city streets were quiet, but gunfire could be heard in the suburbs. Despite official accounts of the number of dead, witnesses told CNN they had seen hundreds of bodies in the streets and elsewhere.

The protests began peacefully Friday as a reaction against the U.S.-led airstrikes in Afghanistan, but turned violent Saturday.

Some of the fighting was attributed to traditional rivalries between Christians and Muslims. After the violence began, many non-Muslims fled to police stations and military barracks for safety.

Additional government troops entered Kano Sunday to help police keep the peace, after many residents ignored an overnight curfew.

Although Saturday's violence was linked to the bombardment of Afghanistan, it followed a familiar pattern of deadly religious clashes that have rocked Nigeria over the past two years, killing thousands.

The introduction of Islamic law in some northern states triggered Muslim-Christian fighting in cities in the region.

Nigeria's population of about 120 million is split almost evenly between Muslims and Christians.

Ezekiel 38 & 39 prophesies of a 3 prong invasion of Israel in the "latter days." (It is just so obvious this is an Islamic Invasion - the Last Jihad led by an Islamic Gog!) The Southern group is clearly defined as North Africa. Libya (Put) and Ethiopia (Cush) are mentioned specifically as the representatives of the Southern invaders.  Nigeria well represents the split in Africa between those who will participate in this invasion should it happen in the present political situation, and those who will not be part of the invasion. Already it is clear the blood thirsty zeal these Southern invaders will bring to the mountains of Israel. It will be their end as they come face to face with the God of the Bible. These invaders are ripe for judgment. This generation of Islam in North Africa exhibits all that would be expected of those about to be judged by the God of the Bible!

Ezek 38:4-5
4And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:

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

Ezek 38:16
16And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
KJV
 

Ezek 38:8-9
8After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.

9Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.
KJV

Ezek 38:21-22
21And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother.

22And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
KJV

Ezek 39:4
4Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.
KJV

Ezek 39:17
17And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.

THE human race is likely to be wiped out by a doomsday virus before the Millennium is out, unless we set up colonies in space, Prof Stephen Hawking warns today.

In an interview with The Telegraph, Prof Hawking, the world's best known cosmologist, says that biology, rather than physics, presents the biggest challenge to human survival.

"Although September 11 was horrible, it didn't threaten the survival of the human race, like nuclear weapons do," said the Cambridge University scientist.

"In the long term, I am more worried about biology. Nuclear weapons need large facilities, but genetic engineering can be done in a small lab. You can't regulate every lab in the world. The danger is that either by accident or design, we create a virus that destroys us.

"I don't think the human race will survive the next thousand years, unless we spread into space. There are too many accidents that can befall life on a single planet. But I'm an optimist. We will reach out to the stars."

How often the scientists, news media, and Hollywood elites have mocked religious dooms day predictions. This of course is different. This is science? Well. it really is not science. It is just one man's speculation based on what he understands as he looks at life. 

I also speculate, but my speculation is based on what God has revealed in the Bible. I speculate on a dispensational change in God's dealing with men as has happened in the past. I take a contemporary view of the Old Testament. I look at today's news, and speculate how these events relate to a return to Old Testament prophecies. The Second Return of the Jews to the Holy Land has made this a most exciting study. Jesus Christ was ready to bring the Old Testament to fulfillment with the declaration "the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand." Sadly, He was rejected by that generation of Jews. I speculate what would happen if that same offer were given to this present generation of Jews? They are not ready right now, but I speculate on what the Bible says is needed for this generation to be prepared to respond to a repeat of the same offer.  It will take a seven year period of tribulation during which the hearts of the Jews will be purged by fire and changed! This time they will not reject the Christ. This heart changing Tribulation seems very close!

What will be dooms day for all who refuse Christ, will be the day of redemption for the Jews. The Old Testament will find perfect fulfillment in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ as King of Kings.

Matt 5:17-18
17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
KJV

Matt 3:1-2
3:1In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,

2And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
KJV

Matt 4:17
17From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
KJV

 

The best speculation of Hawking with all his science is a possible redemption in space from a dooms day virus. The Bible offers a sure redemption in the fulfillment of all things in Christ.

Teddy Bear war gets no comment from Islam

Meanwhile, according to MA'ARIV, members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine planned to hide explosive devices inside teddy bears and scatter them in malls and synagogues in an attempt to lure and harm Israeli children. According to charges brought against PFLP member Shahid Abu Amar, who was captured by Israel while trying to unsuccessfully detonate an explosive motorcycle in Haifa, the PFLP planned this attack along with a series of suicide bombings and car explosives.
 

The silence of moderate Islam is deafening. The reason why is the hate for Jews is as real in moderate Islam as it is in militant Islam. The truth is the hate goes far beyond Islam. Judgment may begin with Islam, but it will not end until Armageddon. The Gentile Nations will reveal their hate for the Jew, and the coming King of the Jews at the culmination of events leading to the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to Jerusalem. It is the kind of hate that brings silence about the Teddy Bear warfare being contemplated today. It should be socially unacceptable to any new world order, but when it's Jews the world order seems to also be strangely silent. It's the silence of the holocaust so well documented by the last generation.

The PFLP should lose all privilege to the human race. They and any supporter should have an automatic death sentence as any other mad dog would find as a societal decree. Teddy Bear war should raise a mighty voice, but I doubt it will ever be more then a whimper.

  Ps 35:20-26
20For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.

21Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, and said, Aha, aha, our eye hath seen it.

22This thou hast seen, O LORD: keep not silence: O Lord, be not far from me.

23Stir up thyself, and awake to my judgment, even unto my cause, my God and my Lord.

24Judge me, O LORD my God, according to thy righteousness; and let them not rejoice over me.

25Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it: let them not say, We have swallowed him up.

26Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that rejoice at mine hurt: let them be clothed with shame and dishonour that magnify themselves against me.

Palestinians Refuse Israel's Ultimatum About Minister Assassination

Xinhuanet 2001.10.18 18:04:39
 

   JERUSALEM, October 18 (Xinhuanet) -- The Palestinians Thursday  refused the Israeli cabinet's ultimatum demanding the Palestinians  hand over any suspects involved in the killing of Israeli Tourism  Minister Rehavam Ze'evi or face fierce retaliations. 
   Interviewed by Israel's Channel Two, Palestinian National  Authority (PNA) Minister Without Portfolio Ziad Abu Ziad said that  the Palestinians would not extradite to Israel those responsible  for the shooting of Ze'evi in Jerusalem's Hyatt Hotel early  Wednesday morning.
   The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a  militant Palestinian group whose leader Abu Ali Mustafa was  assassinated by the Israeli army on August 27, has already claimed  responsibility for the killing of Ze'evi. 

This is the Palestinian State many want formed for peace in the Middle East? A State that protects the promoters of Teddy Bear warfare who have now murdered an Israeli official. The murder of Jews will never be a crime in this new State of New World Order peace. I suppose the PFLP will next be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize? They will be in good company with a former recipient Yasser Arafat! This is just plain foolishness! It is the Anti-Christ peace of which a foolish generation will eagerly follow. The real peace of God, and the false peace of the world, flesh, and devil is being clearly delineated for this foolish generation.

Isa 5:20-24
20Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

21Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

22Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:

23Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

24Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
KJV

Matt 7:17-20
17Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

18A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

19Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

20Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
KJV

Israel says Arafat era is over
FROM CHRISTOPHER WALKER IN JERUSALEM
  • PLO fears leader is target of assassination plot
     
  • Sharon warning of war within a week
  • THE Middle East moved closer to a new war yesterday as Ariel Sharon declared the Arafat era over and moved tanks into three West Bank towns.

    Israel also killed a leading Palestinian militant, and the PLO claimed to have evidence that the Jewish state was plotting to assassinate its leader, Yassir Arafat.

    The rapid collapse of the peace process followed the murder of Rehavam Zeevi, the Israeli Tourism Minister, by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) on Wednesday. Mr Sharon said: “Arafat has seven days to impose absolute quiet in the (occupied) territories. If not, we will go to war against him. As far as I am concerned, the era of Arafat is over.

    The Palestinians suspect that Israel has decided on its response to the killing of Mr Zeevi. Nabil Abu Rdainah, an Arafat aide, said that the Palestinian Authority had evidence that Israel was planning to assassinate Mr Arafat.

    Israel’s Security Cabinet is understood to have sent a blunt message to Mr Arafat that unless Israel’s conditions for the extradition of the killers and the outlawing of all Palestinian terror organisations were adhered to within one week he “would be treated in the way in which the US treats the Taleban”.

    Although there was some confusion about the precise timing of the new Israeli deadline for the surrender of the PFLP killers — whose identity ministers claimed to know — officials said that it would run out at the end of the seven-day mourning period for Mr Zeevi.

    In a reflection of the mood across much of Israel as Mr Zeevi, a former army general, was buried with full military honours in Jerusalem, his family and other mourners called for retaliation on a massive scale to avenge his murder.

    The latest Israeli “targeted killing” near the West Bank town of Bethlehem was that of Ataf Abayat, a member of the Tanzim militia of Mr Arafat’s Fatah faction. He died instantly in a car bomb explosion. He was high on Israel’s wanted list and blamed for the recent death of a woman settler.

    At least three other Palestinians were killed in clashes across the West Bank, as Israeli tanks entered the Palestinian towns of Jenin, Nablus and Ramallah. A 10-year-old schoolgirl was killed in Jenin and two Palestinian security men using automatic rifles to try to prevent tanks advancing into Ramallah also died. The Palestinians said that four other schoolgirls and three adults were wounded in Jenin.

    The killing of Mr Abayat, and two other Palestinian militants who were with him, led to reprisals by Palestinian gunmen, who fired on the Jerusalem suburb of Gilo, which Palestinians regard as an illegal Jewish settlement. A mortar bomb was fired late in the evening but there were no reports of injuries.

    In another incident an Israeli man was shot and killed and two of his companions were wounded in a drive-by shooting on the road between Jerusalem and the West Bank town of Jericho.

    Israeli sources refused to comment on the killing of Mr Abayat, who had recently been picked up by the Palestinian police and released soon after. He was on a wanted list Israel had given to Mr Arafat.

    Changes are taking place quickly in the Islamic world. In Israel, Arafat's days seem to be ending. He has survived similar situations in the past, but my gut feeling is this is finally going to be his end. I don't think an official Palestinian State will ever be accepted by the Israelis. I suspect Palestinian/Israeli relations will remain hostel no matter what or who the Palestinians get behind. The hate for Jews will always be the major factor in determining the direction the Palestinians go.  They will resist God's plan for the future glory of Israel to their death. Submission or death is how the God of the Bible settles all rebellion in the end. It is going to be a Jewish King who will bring righteous peace to Jerusalem and the world. Resistance to His rule is futile. All will be required to submit to His righteousness, or die! His Kingdom will not be mocked or ignored. Most of all, it will not be resisted! It will be established in Jerusalem, and it's law will have world wide enforcement!

    Psalms 110

    110:1The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.

    2The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.

    3Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.

    4The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

    5The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath.

    6He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.

    7He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.
    KJV

    Rev 2:25-29
    25But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.

    26And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:

    27And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.

    28And I will give him the morning star.

    29He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
    KJV

    Rev 12:5
    5And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
    KJV

    Rev 19:15-16
    15And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

    16And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

    Hate for Jews Blinds Minds to Justice

    Danish FM: Ze'evi murder same as targeted killings
    By Herb Keinon

    JERUSALEM (October 19) - Danish Foreign Minister Mogens Lykketoft infuriated Israeli diplomatic officials following tourism minister Rehavam Ze'evi's assassination, when he said on a Danish television program Wednesday night that there is no difference between the assassination and Israel's targeted killing of terrorists.

    "Political murder in that area is not anything new," Lykketoft said.

    According to Lykketoft, "all these types of murder, including what is called Israel's extrajudicial killing of Palestinian leaders," constitute a real danger and harm any chances of reaching a diplomatic solution.

    Lykketoft also said that he does not hold Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat responsible in any way for the assassination, adding that it is a mistake "to give the last terrorist veto rights over diplomatic negotiations."

    One senior government official in Jerusalem labeled Lykketoft an anti-Semite, and said that he is "the most anti-Israel foreign minister in Europe."

    This was not the first time that Lykketoft has enraged Israel with anti-Israel comments, yet it is the first time that officials have "taken off the gloves" in this manner in reaction to his comments.
     

    This is a small item in the news, but reflective of a major attitude that resurfaces again and again. High government officials that lose their common sense! Diplomats who become blind to justice because their personal internal hate dominates their thinking. This is why Teddy Bear warfare is unchallenged by the world diplomats. They can equate exploding Teddy Bears with a fight for freedom as long as Jewish babies are the ones being murdered. They smoke screen their sense of justice by saying nothing about the Teddy Bears, but rather focus on the assassination of a 70 year old former general. They smoke it all to appear like Israel's assassination of the Teddy Bear murderers of children is the same thing?  The diplomats of this world have a strange sense of justice. They do not disassociate themselves from these blinded diplomats much the same as Christians do not disassociate themselves from the apostate error of the Catholics and Charismatics today. In time, the blinded political justice becomes the accepted justice. The blinded error becomes acceptable Christian doctrine (or in this case non-doctrine).

    There is a blindness that defies common sense.

    POPE SAYS MUSLIMS WORSHIP SAME GOD AS CHRISTIANSPope John Paul II has said for years that Jews, Muslims and other non-Christians worship the same God Christians worship. But Muslims and the others deny the deity of Christ and other key doctrines. Last month the Pope called for Christians and Muslims to unite and said: “…I invite both Christians and Muslims to raise an intense prayer to the One, Almighty God whose children we all are….” He said the Catholic Church has nothing but respect for “authentic Islam.” The Pope does not believe Christianity is the only saving faith and that Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven (10/1 Christian News). He even said last December that unbelievers will be saved if they live a just life (1/1/01 CC).

    ADRIAN ROGERS, "GREAT BRIDGE BUILDER."—Early this year, Southern Baptist pastor and dynamic preacher Adrian Rogers commemorated 15 years of television ministry on the charismatic Trinity Broadcast Network. Rogers' Love Worth Finding program is very popular. The TBN Web site has a photo of Rogers shaking hands with Paul Crouch, head of TBN. Crouch said, "We salute Dr. Rogers, and honor our friend and brother! He is truly one of the great bridge builders in the Body of Christ." Crouch has promoted practically every weird and unscriptural Charismatic doctrine and practice, including Word-faith, healing in the atonement, gibberish "tongues," spirit slaying, holy laughter, and prosperity giving. The problem with the conservative Southern Baptist preachers such as Rogers is that they ignore and neglect the hard things of the Christian ministry, such as marking and avoiding false teachers. Instead of shaking Crouch's hand and giving the viewers the impression that he supports this man, Rogers should be lifting his voice to plainly warn his listeners of Crouch's dangerous heresies. Dr. Rogers does give warnings, but they are vague and non-specific. That is not the example given to us by the faithful Apostle Paul. He didn't hesitate to name the names of false teachers and compromisers. (David W. Cloud, 9/21/01, Fund. Baptist Information Svc., P.O.

    Rom 12:1-2
    12:1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

    2 John 9-11
    9Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

    10If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:

    11For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
    KJV

    2 Cor 6:14-18
    14Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

    15And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

    16And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

    17Wherefore come out from among them,       and

    be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

    18And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

    IDF tanks enter Palestinian cities
    By Arieh O'Sullivan

    JERUSALEM (October 21) - In the broadest IDF assault ever on the Palestinian Authority, foot soldiers backed by tanks and attack helicopters encircled most of the West Bank cities over the weekend.

    Palestinian resistance, armed only with light weapons, was not heavy and the IDF said at least 20 Palestinians were killed. Six soldiers were also wounded, including one who was in serious condition.

    The PA condemned the offensive, calling it "a declaration of war against the Palestinian leadership," and urged the world to immediately intervene to prevent a dangerous explosion.

    "The Israeli army has a plan to escalate militarily and it is pursuing this plan, in direct challenge to all international efforts to calm the situation and to revive the peace process," PA Chairman Yasser Arafat told reporters after meeting Russian envoy Andrei Vdovin in the Gaza Strip yesterday.

    The offensive was launched early Friday morning to drive home Israel's demand that the PA hand over those responsible for the Wednesday assassination of tourism minister Rehavam Ze'evi and crack down on terrorists. Defense Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer said Israel will only pull back from the PA areas if it sees compliance.
     

    A day is coming when not just the Palestinians, but all the world will be forced into submission to the Jew! It will not be so much the Jewish Nation as it will be the Jewish King - the LORD of hosts - who will dictate His pleasures. The LORD of hosts is the Biblical name God gives Himself when He puts on His war paint. It is His nature (His attribute) to never lose in battle. When the LORD of hosts appears, all opposition is crushed completely. There is no debate. There is no negotiation. It is keeping His righteousness, or battle! His weapons are nature itself! After all, it is His creation! The disciples at His first coming had a taste of the LORD of hosts power when He commanded the very wind to stop!

    Mark 4:39-41
    39And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

    40And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?

    41And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?
    KJV

    Soon, not just the Palestinians, but all the world will be forced to submit to the ultimate power of the LORD Jesus Christ. Soon, His righteousness will be the law governing all nations. Soon, the LORD of hosts will dictate holiness from Jerusalem, and all the world will obey.

    How much better to seek after righteousness - to pray for a changed submitted heart - to come to Christ - then to be among those who resist.
     

    Zech 14:16-21
    16And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.

    17And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.

    18And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.

    19This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.

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

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

    The LORD of hosts will prove far less tolerant of the Nations then any present secular Jewish administration!

    Mubarak: Bin Laden never talked of Palestinians before WTC
    By Jerusalem Post Staff and Ap

    JERUSALEM (October 21) - "Osama bin Laden made his explosions and then started talking about the Palestinians. He never talked about them before," Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak says in an interview with Newsweek magazine in the issue to be published tomorrow.

    In the interview, Mubarak also tells Newsweek's Lally Weymouth that Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat "has some terrible people around him, like [Tanzim leader Marwan] Barghouti."

    "Let us be realistic," says Mubarak, "I don't care about Arafat. I care about stability. I care about the fact that terrorism, though it can't be stopped, could be lessened if peace moved forward. Time will prove that I am right."
     

    This is the changing face of Islam. Are these politicians using religion, or religious fanatics using politics?  What is happening in Islam is happening in Christianity right now. It will take complete control after the possessing "born again" Christians (as opposed to the professing "lost" Christians - the lip service crowd) are removed supernaturally. Christianity will fully become the same kind of power struggle taking place in Islam today.  Religion and politics will unite for a common cause. The Anti-Christ will rise in the Western world as quickly as bin Laden has in the Islamic world. It will be impossible to determine where the religion ends and the politics begin. Christianity will lose the Holy Spirit at the rapture of the true Church (it will lose all it's spiritual value to God), but will continue to flourish as apostate in the post rapture world. Today, the Great Apostate Church (Christianity) is alive and well. Already most have trouble determining where the religion ends and the politics begin. Already "God bless America" must not be challenged with the question "which god?" It is not politically correct to ask! America is ready for the generic god of the Anti-Christ! Let me ask! Is the movement toward god since September 11th  a movement to the Bible, or a movement to the political/religious god that will be used by the Anti-Christ like Arafat and bin Laden use Allah? America wants religion! It does not want the God of the Bible! It does not want Christ!

    The end will always be the Anti-Christ (the beast) putting himself above both religion and politics!

    Rev 17:3-6
    3So 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.

    4And 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:

    5And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

    6And 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.
    KJV

    Rev 17:12-18
    12And 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.

    13These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

    14These 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.

    15And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

    16And 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.

    17For 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.

    18And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

    Another Bomber Bombs Self

    The Mountains of Israel are Filling

    Leading Hamas bomber killed in Nablus
    By Arieh O'Sullivan

    TEL AVIV (October 23) - One of the top Hamas bomb makers, whom the Prime Minister's Office said was responsible for killing 48 Israelis, was killed in Nablus last night when a mysterious explosion ripped through the car he was traveling in.

    Ayman Halaweh was considered the number three man in the Hamas military wing, Izzadin Kassam. He was not only a master bomb maker, but also recruited suicide bombers, and was the most wanted Hamas terrorist in the Nablus region.

    Another man, also identified as a Hamas terrorist, was in the car and critically wounded in the blast. Hamas blamed the explosion on Israel. The car was reportedly a stolen Israeli vehicle that Halaweh received a few days ago.

    The Prime Minister's Office listed the attacks it attributed to Halaweh, whom it said was one of the most wanted terrorists, indicating he likely was involved in almost every major Hamas bombing in the past year, including the Sbarro pizzeria bombing. Halaweh also allegedly organized the suicide attack at Tel Aviv's Dolphinarium, and actually fitted suicide bombers with their explosive packs, Israel Radio said.

    He also reportedly recruited six Israeli Arabs from Umm el-Fahm who were supposed to carry out a suicide attack on the Bank Hapoalim in Hadera.

    The blast took place on the main road leading to the Nablus A-Najah University, a hotbed of Hamas activism.

    Palestinian reports said that Halaweh had earlier this year been lightly wounded while working on a bomb, but he quickly recovered.

    Halaweh had reportedly been traveling with false papers and it took a few hours until his identity was verified.
     

    I have been following all these premature explosions, and state with confidence that the hand of God is being revealed. I know Israel is very good at covert actions, but these accidents go far beyond even what the best covert  operatives could ever achieve. It is not that Israel is so good, or that these terrorists are so incompetent. It is the clear hand of God intervening on behalf of His chosen people.

    I doubt the news folks will ever put two and two together in print. Even the Jewish reporters shutter to say openly what they all must recognize as a wonderment. The very fact that the Jews have returned to the Holy Land, the Promised Land, after almost 2000 years of dispersion is an even greater wonderment! That they continue to stand in the midst of  an Islamic world that hates them with such intensity is another wonderment.  How fearful it is to contemplate that God's hand can so clearly be seen working today on behalf of the future glory of Israel.

    1 Sam 5:11-6:1
    11So they sent and gathered together all the lords of the Philistines, and said, Send away the ark of the God of Israel, and let it go again to his own place, that it slay us not, and our people: for there was a deadly destruction throughout all the city; the hand of God was very heavy there.

    12And the men that died not were smitten with the emerods: and the cry of the city went up to heaven.
    KJV
     

    Ex 3:20
    20And I will stretch out my hand, and smite Egypt with all my wonders which I will do in the midst thereof: and after that he will let you go.
    KJV
     

    Ezek 39:4-5
    4Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.

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

    ISRAEL REJECTS US DEMAND TO LEAVE PA AREAS

    By Julie Stahl CNSNews.com Jerusalem Bureau Chief - Israel maintained its grip on six Palestinian Authority-controlled cities on Tuesday after rejecting a U.S. demand that it leave the PA areas immediately.

    The Israeli army surrounded and took up positions in the cities following the assassination of Tourism Minister Rechavam Ze'evy last week, but the government has insisted that the move is a temporary one, aimed at preventing additional terror attacks in Israel.

    More than 80,000 Israelis rallied in Jerusalem for hours Monday evening in support of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. They want their government to be even tougher on the PA.
     

    It is tough treatment! However, were the situation reversed what kind of treatment would the Jew receive from the Arab or Islamic? What rules would Arafat or bin Laden practice were either to lead in an overpowering invasion of Israel?  What kind of restraint would be practiced? I doubt any but a fool would concede it would be a blood bath beyond anything this world has ever experienced.

    The Bible predicts just this very scenario. An overpowering Islamic invasion of Israel. I suspect Israel will soon lean on the straw staff of the UN/USA as it did in Ezekiel's day on Egypt. Israel will probably disarm under pressure from the peaceniks? The greatest blood bath in world history will have been formulated. Such events can happen quickly. Such reversals of situation is just the twinkling of the eye away. Please read Ezekiel 38-39 (just click the hot link). God will intervene! Islam will perish for ever!

    The Palestinian can be thankful for now the rules for them are not like the rules applied to the Amalek who also dwelt in the Promised Land when Israel came to take possession the first time.


    1 Sam 15:1-3
    15:1Samuel also said unto Saul, The LORD sent me to anoint thee to be king over his people, over Israel: now therefore hearken thou unto the voice of the words of the LORD.

    2Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt.

    3Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.
    KJV

     

    A Double Prophecy of Saul, but also goes beyond Saul to Christ

     

    Num 24:17-25
    17I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Scepter shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.

    18And Edom shall be a possession, Seir also shall be a possession for his enemies; and Israel shall do valiantly.

    19Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion, and shall destroy him that remaineth of the city.

    20And when he looked on Amalek, he took up his parable, and said, Amalek was the first of the nations; but his latter end shall be that he perish for ever.

    21And he looked on the Kenites, and took up his parable, and said, Strong is thy dwellingplace, and thou puttest thy nest in a rock.

    22Nevertheless the Kenite shall be wasted, until Asshur shall carry thee away captive.

    23And he took up his parable, and said, Alas, who shall live when God doeth this!

    24And ships shall come from the coast of Chittim, and shall afflict Asshur, and shall afflict Eber, and he also shall perish for ever.

    25And Balaam rose up, and went and returned to his place: and Balak also went his way.

    5 Palestinians killed, 2 suspects in Ze'evi murder arrested
    By Margot Dudkevitch

    JERUSALEM (October 25) - The IDF carried out widespread raids in the West Bank village of Beit Rima yesterday in a search for the killers of Tourism Minister Rehavam Ze'evi that led to five Palestinians being killed.

    The government said two members of the four-man terror cell responsible for his assassination are in custody.

    Israel said that among the Palestinians killed were members of Palestinian security forces and Hamas.

    Eleven fugitives affiliated with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Hamas, and Tanzim were also arrested during the raid and handed over to the General Security Service.

    Scores were held for questioning, including the brother of Ze'evi's alleged assassin, officials said.
     

    Amid the cries of foul. and pull back by our own State Department -  Israel has captured terrorists involved in their latest atrocities. In just a few hours Israel had in custody those involved in the murder of their Minister whom the Palestinians refused to arrest. The US government demanded Israel withdraw from Palestinian territory as soon as the word got out of the incursion.

    It seems to me we should give Israel a free hand in Afghanistan! It would probably only take them a day or two to capture bin Laden. I'm sure most of the world would cry foul, but the foulest man we know living on the planet today would be brought to justice.

    It will never happen because it is not politically correct. It is not politically correct because most of the world hates the Jew. The thought of Jewish troops on Moslem land is why even our own State Department cries foul! The politics of religion rule this world. The Bible says the Lord Jesus Christ is soon coming to set everything straight again.

    Ps 5:8-12
    8Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.

    9For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.

    10Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.

    11But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

    12For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
    KJV

    I'm not the only one who knows the truth about bin Laden.

    The Game of Politics and Religion

    UN SECURITY COUNCIL JOINS CALLS FOR ISRAEL TO WITHDRAW

    REUTERS - The UN Security Council added its voice to the international outcry for Israel to pull its troops out of the [Judean and Samarian] towns it entered last week after the slaying of Tourism Minister Rehavam Ze'evi.

    A press statement issued late Thursday marked a rare display of unity on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The 15-member body has been deadlocked for months, with the United States, on behalf of Israel, objecting to UN involvement.

    The Security Council agreed to meet Monday and , consider further action depending on whether Israel withdrew its soldiers from the six [Judean and Samarian] towns it began entering on October 18, a day after the assassination of Ze'evi by a radical Palestinian group.
     

    ISRAELI AND PA OFFICIALS TO MEET TO COORDINATE WITHDRAWAL

    HA'ARETZ - Israel has called for a joint meeting of Israeli, Palestinian and U.S. security officials to coordinate the withdrawal from Palestinian controlled areas it entered in the wake of the assassination of Tourism Minister Rehavam Ze'evi. The statement said the meeting would be held Friday.
     

    INTELLIGENCE CHIEF: WITHDRAWAL WILL INVITE TERROR

    HA'ARETZ - The IDF Intelligence Chief Amos Malka warned Thursday that despite the recent extensive IDF operations in Palestinian-controlled areas of [Judea and Samaria], several terrorist cell leaders were still free and planning attacks. "One week after the murder of [Tourism] Minister [Rehavam] Ze'evi, and the IDF operations to root out terror, most of the terror activists and their leaders are still on the loose," he said. "The next terrorist attacks are on the way."

    Malka said that following a wave of support for the Palestinian Authority from the international community, the PA had stopped any preventive measures against terrorism. "Without preventive action, and without the end of the two-sided game that the PA is playing, it is hard to see a reality without terror attacks," he said.
     

    Secular Israel is at the mercy of the global political/religious system in operation today. It has no choice but to withdraw. Only a separate voice apart from politics and religion speaking on behalf of the God of the Bible will ever accomplish the task of building a Temple. Think - what would happen if the Two Witnesses of Revelation came on the scene. Think - when they demand by God's decree that all Moslem shrines be bulldozed from the Temple Mount, and a Third Jewish Temple be built? The political/religious system would have to demand their withdrawal from society!

    The Third Jewish Temple will never be an approved project in the political/religious world system.  It will take the radical demands of radical men going against everything that society deems proper for the Temple to be built. It will take the irresistible force of God Himself going against all politics and all religion to accomplish the task. The importance of the Temple is directly related to the coming of the Kingdom. The world will fight it to the bitter end. The demand by the world will always be "withdraw!" They do not want a Jewish Temple, they do not want a Jewish Kingdom, they do not want a Jewish Messiah to rule.

    Rev 11:3-7
    3And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

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

    5And 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.

    6These 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.

    7And 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.
    KJV
     

     

    I believe the testimony of these Two Witnesses from Jerusalem will be the building and kosher operation of the Third Jewish Temple! They will have 3 1/2 years to accomplish their task. It will take such power as these men will manifest to fight the world system every inch of the way. They will be killed by the Anti-Christ, but not before their task is finished. The Anti-Christ will desecrate the Temple for 3 1/2 years - faithful Jews will flee for the wilderness, but God will triumph. The 7 year tribulation will end with the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Kingdom will be established in the midst of worldwide resistance.

    The Truth of where the Great Christian Denominations Stand on Israel

    JERUSALEM PATRIARCHS MARCH IN SOLIDARITY WITH BETHLEHEM

    By Julie Stahl CNSNews.com Jerusalem Bureau Chief - The Patriarchs of Jerusalem's Catholic and Orthodox churches led hundreds of Palestinian Christians and others on a solidarity march calling for peace, from the outer edge of Jerusalem to the center of Bethlehem on Tuesday. .....
     

    At the march, Christians and Muslims joined the Patriarchs along the way as they walked arm in arm through the streets of Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus, to the town's center, at Manger Square. .....

    PA police guarded the route. In one doorway, a Palestinian in plain clothes passed an automatic weapon to another gunmen.

    Called the "Solidarity Convoy for Peace," organizers said in a flier that the aim of the march was to show solidarity, call for an immediate end to "intervention" in the PA areas and an immediate "end of violence from all sides."

    They also called on Israel and the Palestinians to return to the negotiating table and on the United Nations to press both parties to abide by U.N. resolutions.

    Chancellor of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem, Fr. Raed A. Abusahlia, organizer of the rally, said that if Israel wants to live in peace and security, it would need to give justice to the Palestinian people, and he dismissed Israel's fight against terrorism.

    "The mother of all terrorism and violence is the military occupation," Abusahlia said in reference to numerous Israeli communities spread throughout the disputed territories.

    "The violence, the Palestinian violence which we call resistance, is a reaction, is the consequences of the military occupation," he said. If Israel will leave those areas, the Palestinians will be their "first friend."

    "The meaning of today is to tell the Israelis a very clear-cut position that they should think over about their occupation," said Bethlehem Mayor Hanna Nasser in an interview.

    "They should understand that if they want peace they have to withdrawal from every square inch from the occupied [territories]," Nasser added.

    Some 200,000 Israelis live in those areas on the West Bank and Gaza Strip, which the Jewish people consider to be their eternal Biblical inheritance of Judea, Samaria and Gaza.

    Nevertheless, Nasser said he believed that Israel and the Palestinians "are destined by God to be good neighbors."

     

    A Jewish Jerusalem is a more bitter pill to swallow then a Moslem Jerusalem for these leaders of the Christian world. They have long told their gullible followers that they not the Jews were to receive all the Biblical blessings associated with the future glory of Jerusalem and Israel. They could abide with Moslem control telling all that their day was still coming. However, when the literal Jews of the literal Bible took control it became very difficult to continue the usurpation. Their only hope of holding to their false theology is if the Palestinians can be pictured as being in control over Jewish sovereignty.

    The Catholic's, Orthodoxy's, and all others who adhere to some covenant theological system will always march against the Jews of Israel. Their false theology dictates opposition to a Jewish Jerusalem, a Jewish Temple, and a Jewish King ruling all. The Popes, Patriarchal High Bishops, and big time covenant Pastors must all step aside for the Lord Jesus Christ when he comes as King of the Jews! Christianity itself must step aside for the next dispensation where the Jew will be center again to all God will be doing for the next 1007 years.

    The time came when God rent the Kingdom from Saul, and gave it to David. The time has likewise come when the Kingdom must be rent from the Christian world for the same transgressions of Saul, and given to one better able to represent the God of the Bible!

    1 Sam 15:10-11
    10Then came the word of the LORD unto Samuel, saying,

    11It repenteth me that I have set up Saul to be king: for he is turned back from following me, and hath not performed my commandments. And it grieved Samuel; and he cried unto the LORD all night.
    KJV

    1 Sam 15:24-28
    24And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the LORD, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.

    25Now therefore, I pray thee, pardon my sin, and turn again with me, that I may worship the LORD.

    26And Samuel said unto Saul, I will not return with thee: for thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, and the LORD hath rejected thee from being king over Israel.

    27And as Samuel turned about to go away, he laid hold upon the skirt of his mantle, and it rent.

    28And Samuel said unto him, The LORD hath rent the kingdom of Israel from thee this day, and hath given it to a neighbour of thine, that is better than thou.
    KJV

    Thousands of fighters flock to Taliban Army

    Eben Black, James Clark and Tony Allen-Mills, Washington

    THOUSANDS of Pakistani warriors armed with automatic weapons, axes and swords headed for the Afghan border yesterday to join forces with the Taliban regime shielding Osama Bin Laden.

    Between 5,000 and 10,000 were reported to be travelling in a convoy of trucks, buses and vans on the northwest frontier. They vowed to fight a holy war against the United States.

    Last night hundreds were massing in the mountains on the Afghan border, carrying everything from rocket launchers to pickaxes.

    The organisers claimed similar-sized groups were camped around towns, ready to join them today. There were reports, however, that Pakistani authorities were trying to prevent them crossing into Afghanistan.

    Mullah Mohammed Omar, the Taliban leader, had appealed for tribes in border provinces to provide men to help him resist American-led attacks. The fighters, urged on by clerics, plan to join Taliban forces, who are thought to number about 40,000. Their ranks are being swollen by Islamic fundamentalists from many countries, including Britain.

    Arafat: Palestinians will win in the end
    Sat Oct 27 2001 16:44:05 ET

    GAZA CITY, Gaza, Oct 27, 2001 (UPI) -- In some of the strongest public statements he has made in months, Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat said Saturday that Israeli tanks, missiles and warplanes would never break the firmness of the Palestinian people and that they would continue fighting on their lands until they win at the end. .....


    "I tell Sharon and (Binyamin) Netanyahu and every body on this earth that we are still living and existing here on our land. We will continue fighting and struggling with power and faith until we win," shouted Arafat in his statement.

    Arafat made his remarks were made after Israeli, Palestinian and CIA officials agreed that the Israeli army would pull out its troops, tanks and armored personnel carriers from the two towns of Bethlehem and Beit Jala on Saturday night. Israel has delayed those plans.
     

    Win = ethnic cleansing of all Jews in Palestine!

    Islam has raised a generation prepared for death. They have been raised on hate. Hate for the Jew, and all Jew lovers. They have been raised to die! The world has experienced these kinds of fanatical generations in the past. The Hitler youth, and Bonsai Japanese were all exterminated at great cost. The Japanese suicide bombers of the Second World War caused great consternation, but were also eliminated in the end. Today, Islam has raised a similar generation ready to die rather then submit. Their ultimate goal is familiar. The eradication of the Jews. They will die before ever giving up their expectations. Nothing can change them - not even death.

    Israel will soon have a choice in how to deal with such continual fanaticism. To lean on the USA/UN for protection, or lean on the God of the Bible. Secular Judaism will find the choice simple much as it did in the days of Isaiah then later Ezekiel when they leaned on the staff of reeds, Egypt, which only broke and failed them. A spiritual Judaism is coming that will lean completely on God. It will have at it's foundation the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11, and the 144,000 celibate Jewish men of Revelation 7 and 14. Many more Jews and some Gentiles will convert to this return to the Bible within Judaism over the 7 years of tribulation.  It will be for this spiritual Judaism that God will act by eliminating the invading Moslems of Ezekiel 38 & 39. It will be for these Jews that God will open the door for the building of Ezekiel's Temple - the Third Jewish Temple to be built on the Temple Mount. It will be for these Jews that the Lord Jesus Christ will come as the Messiah/King to rule the whole world for a millennium in perfect righteousness bringing perfect peace.

    The spiritual Jew need never fear the fanatical Moslem. Death on the mountains of Israel will be the fate of all who resist the God of the Bible! The times are changing fast! A new dispensation is near! A return to Biblical Judaism is almost here! The Kingdom of which John the Baptist proclaimed is about to be offered again to the Jews!

    Isa 36:6
    6Lo, thou trustest in the staff of this broken reed, on Egypt; whereon if a man lean, it will go into his hand, and pierce it: so is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all that trust in him.
    KJV

    Ezek 29:6-7
    6And all the inhabitants of Egypt shall know that I am the LORD, because they have been a staff of reed to the house of Israel.

    7When they took hold of thee by thy hand, thou didst break, and rend all their shoulder: and when they leaned upon thee, thou brakest, and madest all their loins to be at a stand.
    KJV
     


    Ezek 39:4
    4Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.
    KJV

    Worshipers flock to Rachel's Tomb
    By Margot Dudkevitch

    BETHLEHEM (October 29) - Undeterred by recent violence in the area, worshipers in the thousands thronged to Rachel's Tomb in bulletproof shuttle buses yesterday to mark the anniversary of the matriarch's death.

    Toward noon, a group of 100 impatient worshipers standing at the exit to Gilo forced their way past soldiers and set off on foot to the tomb. They said they should be free to travel to the site unhindered.

    Elsewhere yesterday, from afternoon to nightfall there was an increase in the number of shooting incidents and Palestinian attacks against Israeli civilians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
     

    Five killed in two terror attacks
    By David Rudge

    HADERA (October 29) - Drive-by terrorists struck twice in the heart of the country yesterday, killing a soldier and four women and wounding dozens of other civilians in attacks near Kibbutz Metzer and in the center of nearby Hadera.

    The two terrorists involved in the Hadera attack were later found to be members of the Palestinian Police, even though Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the murders.
     

    The killing of St.-Sgt. Yaniv Levy, 22, of Zichron Ya'acov, outside Kibbutz Metzer was claimed by the so-called Al-Aksa Brigades of the Palestinian Authority's mainstream Fatah organization.

    The four Israelis killed in the Hadera attack were identified as Lydia Marco, 63, of Givat Ada; Ayala Levy, 39, of Elyachin; Sima Menahem, 30, of Zichron Ya'acov; and Smadar Levy, 23, of Hadera.
     

    Orthodox Church Says Land is Theirs

    The patriarch of the Greek Orthodox Church said the church wants to repossess its land holdings in Israel. In an interview with the Jerusalem Post, newly elected Patriarch Eireneos I also said the church may lay claim to land under the Israeli Knesset.

    Rachel's Tomb was in Bethlehem for over 1500 years when the Lord Jesus Christ was born. A usurper to the throne and the Kingdom named Herod murdered all the babies of Bethlehem in an attempt to stop the rightful King from ever ruling. The woman of Bethlehem paid a price for the coming King. The first time He came to suffer and die that a perfect sacrifice would be given so sinners could be saved. He is coming again, but this time as the conquering King. Today, the mothers and grandmothers continue to pay a price over Bethlehem and the soon coming King. Today, modern usurpers continue to make false claims of which they have no Biblical authority. God will not turn over Jerusalem to any Orthodox patriarch, or Pope, or any other religious leader. All must step aside for the rightful King. The Jewish King of Kings.

    Christ is coming this second time as the "Lord of Hosts," the conquering King who's very nature is never to lose in battle.  All the suffering of the past will be vindicated. The God of the Bible will not be mocked by any usurpers. All must step aside - all Moslems, all secularized and apostate Christians, all secularized and apostate Jews, all the world in the end! It will be the God of the Bible. The Christ of the Bible. The Lord of Hosts! Everything and everyone else must step aside, or be destroyed in battle!

    FOUR DAUGHTERS OF ZION

    Ayelet Levy, 39, of Moshav Elyachin, was on her way to pick up her two daughters from nursery when she was murdered. She herself was a nursery school assistant.

    Sima Menachem, 30, of Zikhron Yaakov: When the attack began, she managed to dial her husband Asher's phone number, but not to talk with him when he answered; he heard only gunshots and screaming.

    Lidia Marco, 62, a mother of 3.

    Smadar Levy, 23, of Hadera, was laid to rest in the new Hadera cemetery at 2 PM.  Survived by her parents and four siblings, Smadar was just beginning to plan her wedding.  She had begun working at a local health clinic during her year of national service, and continued afterwards.

     

    Gen 35:19-20
    19And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath, which is Bethlehem.

    20And Jacob set a pillar upon her grave: that is the pillar of Rachel's grave unto this day.
    KJV
     

    Jer 31:15
    15Thus saith the LORD; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not.
    KJV


    Matt 2:16-18
    16Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men.

    17Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying,

    18In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.
    KJV
     

    Rev 6:15-17
    15And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

    16And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

    17For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
    KJV

    Rev 14:10-12
    10The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

    11And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

    12Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

    Sovereignty

    (09:45) Arafat meeting pope today

    Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat will meet Pope John Paul II in Rome today, PA sources said.

    Arafat will detail damage allegedly caused to Church structures in Bethlehem by the IDF during it's incursion, the Itim news agency reports.

    Arafat will also meet with Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and President Carlo Azeglio Ciampi before returning to Gaza.

    (09:20) West Bank, Gaza violence continues unabated overnight
    By Margot Dudkevitch

    There were a number of violent incidents in the West Bank and Gaza last night following a day of calm.

    An Israeli citizen was lightly injured from stones thrown at his car near Yakir in the early evening.

    He was treated at the site and did not require hospitalization.

    Late yesterday afternoon and last night, Palestinians shot a number of times at soldiers deployed on the western outskirts of Kalkilya.

    A bomb exploded near an IDF convoy travelling near Sanur south of Jenin.

    No one was injured and no damage reported.

    In Gaza, three mortar shells were fired last night, one landing near an IDF base in Gush Katif and two in the community of Kfar Darom.

    Palestinians also threw grenades at soldiers deployed near Rafah.
     

    (14:45) Municipality razes Arab buildings in Jerusalem
    By Etgar Lefkovits

    In a continuing clampdown on illegal building in east  Jerusalem, municipality bulldozers yesterday  demolished two newly constructed Arab buildings in the northern Jerusalem Arab neighborhood of Beit Hanina.

    The municipality said in a statement that the two homes were uninhabited one story structures.

    The structures were each illegally built on about 350 square meters of land.

    The city also leveled the foundations of two nearby fenced in areas where illegal construction was under way.

    Yesterday's demolitions bring to 30 the number of Arab structures, mostly uninhabited, that were razed in the city since the beginning of the year.

    Palestinians complain that it is extremely difficult to obtain building permits in east Jerusalem.

    The municipality insists it is evenhanded in enforcing building codes in all parts of the city.

    The real issue is sovereignty. The Pope will listen to Arafat cry over some cracks in the plaster that will be magnified into a world class disaster. This is the same Arafat who just recently confiscated a Christian Church court yard to build a new Mosque. There was no discussion. The land was under Palestinian Authority control, and by Arafat decree became Moslem! This Pope can tolerate Moslem control, but goes into righteous rage when Jews are in control. The Pope can't tolerate a literal interpretation of the Bible that declares the future glory of a Jewish Israel, Jerusalem, and Temple Mount rather then Roman control (a false future glory) of the Vatican.

    Palestinian sovereignty is the right to shoot Jews. All the victim need be is Jewish. Woman Jews, children Jews, even a baby Jew in a stroller are all legitimate targets in a sovereign Palestinian State. Hate for Jews will always be the reality of Islamic thinking because it has been implanted into their heart by every aspect of their society.

    Jews in control - Jewish sovereignty - is something that must be perceived as diabolical by the world in general.  Who would ever believe the Jew could be evenhanded? The Pope can be pictured as evenhanded. Even Arafat can be conceived as evenhanded. But, the Jew?

    A day is coming when the attitude toward the Jew will change! It will be the day when the Jewish King will have taken control. The Bible tells us it will be a glorious day indeed! The LORD of hosts shall do it!

    Zech 8:13-17
    13And it shall come to pass, that as ye were a curse among the heathen, O house of Judah, and house of Israel; so will I save you, and ye shall be a blessing: fear not, but let your hands be strong.

    14For thus saith the LORD of hosts; As I thought to punish you, when your fathers provoked me to wrath, saith the LORD of hosts, and I repented not:

    15So again have I thought in these days to do well unto Jerusalem and to the house of Judah: fear ye not.

    16These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates:

    17And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbour; and love no false oath: for all these are things that I hate, saith the LORD.
    KJV

    Zech 8:20-23
    20Thus saith the LORD of hosts; It shall yet come to pass, that there shall come people, and the inhabitants of many cities:

    21And the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, Let us go speedily to pray before the LORD, and to seek the LORD of hosts: I will go also.

    22Yea, many people and strong nations shall come to seek the LORD of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the LORD.

    23Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.
    KJV

    Zech 9:9
    9Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.
    KJV

    Zech 9:16
    16And the LORD their God shall save them in that day as the flock of his people: for they shall be as the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign upon his land.
    KJV

    Zech 10:6
    6And I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph, and I will bring them again to place them; for I have mercy upon them: and they shall be as though I had not cast them off: for I am the LORD their God, and will hear them.
    KJV
     

    Read: Mishpat, -  This Place, -  The Second Woe, -  The Last Jihad, -  The Gentile Stranger in a Jewish Dispensation -  The End of the Church Age. You will find them Biblical, and eye opening.
