2 Thessalonians 1:6-9

6 Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;

7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,

8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

Israeli Police tighten grip on Temple Mount
100,000 Muslims expected for Friday prayers during Ramadan 


 

Gearing up for the first Friday prayers since the Muslim fast of Ramadan began last weekend, thousands of Israel police officers have hit the streets of Jerusalem's Old City, and both east and west Jerusalem.

The Jerusalem Post reports that while the Muslim residents of east Jerusalem will be granted open access to the Temple Mount mosques in the Old City, only men above the age of 40 will be allowed into Jerusalem from the West Bank. Palestinian women possessing permits will be able to enter the Temple Mount compound without hindrance.

Jerusalem District Police Commissioner Ilan Franco told Army Radio on Friday that although there had been no specific intelligence warnings of planned terror attacks, Jerusalem was always "an attractive target." According to Franco, some 100,000 Muslims were expected on the Temple Mount for Friday prayers.

On Thursday, the IDF announced that a full closure of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip would be established Friday morning. The blockade will be lifted Monday evening after the end of the Jewish fast of Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement, which begins on Sunday.


Yom Kippur Gradually Descends Upon Israel

By Hillel Fendel

Bus & train service, radio & television broadcasts, commerce & office activity and other signs of a modern country will gradually close down today, marking the onset of the solemn day of Yom Kippur.

Yom Kippur - Hebrew for "Day of Atonement" - is a day of fasting, prayer and introspection. The country will essentially be closed down from sundown Sunday until the same time on Monday, with no public transportation, public electronic broadcasts, stores or services (including Arutz-7 news).

Though bicycling has become a popular pastime on the holy day, to the dismay of many rabbis, even more prevalent on this day are prayer services - yet many non-religious Jews still refrain from attending, for various reasons. In an attempt to encourage more participation, more than 250 special Yom Kippur services in which religious and secular worshipers will pray together will be held throughout the country.

Sponsoring many of the services are the Tzohar ("Window") rabbis' organization and B'Yachad ("Together"), Tzohar is dedicated to reaching out to the secular public and helping to fashion the country's Jewish identity via dialogue and "the search for common elements of identity." The guiding principle is that many Israelis who are not familiar with Judaism and who generally do not take part in High Holiday services will feel more comfortable participating in "prayer and study gatherings" of this nature.

The special prayer gatherings will be held in local community centers and schools in cities and towns of all sizes throughout the country. The custom began in 2002, with a well-attended special service in the secular Kibbutz Mitzpeh Shalem on the Dead Sea shore. That same year, then-Deputy Foreign Minister Rabbi Michael Melchior also organized over 100 similar "secular minyanim" [prayer quorums], featuring a chazan [prayer leader], an instructor, and a director, as well as some observant Jews to give "life" to the service.

In one of the services in Pisgat Ze'ev in Jerusalem, a rabbi from Tzohar and several students will help run the show, providing explanations, one-on-one help, and even singing. Between-prayers discussions on religious and religious-social issues often take place as well.

In Kfar Ayanim, a youth village near Yavneh, the residents - Jewish students from Brazil and many secular families - will be buttressed by nine students and a teacher from the Sdei Yaakov Yeshiva High School in the north. A chazan was still missing, however, until Tzohar - just last night - matched them up with a willing volunteer from Beit El, rounding out the picture.

In Raanana, a Gar'in Torani (Torah core group) of some 20 families hopes to make people feel more "at home" in the synagogue this Yom Kippur. "Another 5-6 yeshiva boys will be coming, as well," a representative said. "These services correspond with our purpose in being here in general - to raise religious awareness, to set a tone, and to reach a situation where people feel that the Torah belongs to them as well."

Tzohar's other activities in seeking to present Orthodox Judaism in a tolerant and welcoming fashion include conducting weddings for secular couples, pre-wedding counseling for brides and grooms, educational activities, counseling for community rabbis with the goal of elevating their status and involving them in all areas of public life, and more.

The IDF will impose a total closure on the Arab areas of Judea and Samaria over the Yom Kippur holiday, in light of 17 specific warnings of possible terrorist attacks. The intelligence information includes word of attempted kidnappings, suicide attacks and rockets.
 

 


 

The Temple Mount is the focus of God in these latter days of this dispensation. Soon it will become the pinnacle of everything the Bible has stood for over the generations. The Bible says the LORD Jesus Christ is coming again. He is going to establish His throne on this very spot. All religion will end! Apostate Christianity and Apostate Judaism will be outlawed. Only Christ will be honored as the King of kings, and LORD of Lords. He will unite world government, and world religion into one universal system based on the Bible. He will be the Great High Priest of the Jewish Temple yet to be built on the Mount. Perfect righteousness will be the law as determined by the perfectly sinless LORD Jesus Christ. Puritanical standards will be established that will cover every aspect of life. The Bible says Jesus will reign for 1000 years where even the wild beasts will experience a character change. The lion and lamb will be at peace in testimony to the power of Christ. Mankind will also be tamed. It will come only with absolute submission to the LORD Jesus Christ. A forced submission on the part of many over the thousand years, but a joy to others who seek relief from the fruits of sin. Only those who come to Christ for full forgiveness with all their heart, soul, and might will experience the character change that will make them love righteousness as they love the Savior who provided their redemption.

100,000 Moslems have stated in the most forceful way they can that they reject both Christ and the Bible! They have usurped the place of His coming throne replacing Him with the Arabic god Allah of the Koran. A god who drives the faithful into animalistic blood thirsty frenzy. A god which has produced a generation of barbarians who will never allow a Jewish Temple, or a Jewish King on the Mount. They have declared war on both Christ and the Bible! Folks, I'm going to tell you something. Not 100,000, or even 1.25 billion Moslems are going to stop the second coming of the LORD Jesus Christ. Their rejection of Him as their coming King will lead to their death. God has wiped away larger nations and their false religions in the past. They and their Allah are counted as but dust by the Great God of the Bible. The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again in the character of the LORD of hosts. He will manifest the power of Almighty God. He will not be resisted when He lays down the law. Sinful mankind will never put Him on the cross again! No power on earth can stop the LORD of hosts from completing the prophecies of Christ found in the Bible.

The Bible tells us that the LORD Jesus Christ made the perfect atonement for sin on Calvary. Apostate Judaism still recognizes this most fundamental doctrine of the Bible, but reject Christ as their Messiah. The atonement has no value to these religious Jews doing all they can to secularize the holiness associated with the atonement in order to make Apostate Judaism palatable to the secular Jewish majority. The same holds true for Apostate Christianity that has secularized worship into entertainment in order to draw the crowds only adding more to the roles of apostasy. The holiest day of the year should remind all that Jesus made the atonement holy by His perfect sacrifice. He did so not for those calling themselves religious, but for sinners who recognize their need for atonement from sin. The Bible is clear that the LORD Jesus Christ never transferred His power to any religion. Religion has no power to save! Religion has never provided a holy atonement for anything. Friend, it is not to religion you must go, but to the LORD Jesus Christ. The christ of Apostate Christianity is as powerless as the religious Rabbis in providing atonement. They can sing and dance, but they can't save. They can only add to the ranks of Apostate Judaism. A High Priest is needed for atonement as every Jew knows. Blood sacrifice is demanded by the Holy God of the Bible for atonement. Friend, this is the only Christ of the Bible who has the power to make an atonement for your sin. Only Christ has the power to make you sinlessly perfect. Only Christ can wash away all your sin. Won't you come boldly to Him for your atonement?

Hebrews 4:14-16

14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest , that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.

15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
KJV
 

 

Hebrews 10:1-10


10:1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those
sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.
2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged
should have had no more conscience of sins.
3 But in those sacrifices there is a
remembrance again made of sins every year.
4 For it is
not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:
6
In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.
7 Then said I, Lo,
I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.
8 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;
9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.
10
By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
KJV

IDF Completes Withdrawal From Southern Lebanon
10:41 Oct 01, '06 / 9 Tishrei 5767
by Yechiel Spira

 

The IDF completed its troop withdrawal from southern Lebanon during the course of the night preceding Yom Kippur, in compliance with UN Resolution 1701.

Government officials gave the IDF the green light on the Sabbath to complete the troop withdrawal ahead of Yom Kippur, which begins on Sunday evening. The last several hundred soldiers left southern Lebanon during the course of Saturday night, resulting in Israel’s total compliance with the UN-brokered ceasefire agreement, Resolution 1701.

The IDF announced that it continues to view the Lebanese government responsible for ensuring quiet and security from its territory.

Northern Command Will Remain Vigilant
Despite the presence of the international stabilization force under the auspices of UNIFIL, the IDF’s Northern Command will carefully monitor events in southern Lebanon. Neither the international force nor the Lebanese military troops plan to act to disarm Hizbullah.

Reinforcements will remain in northern border outposts and measures will be taken to protect the northern border against a possible terrorist attack.

Last week, IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz released statements that Israel will not tolerate armed civilians in proximity to the border, as occurred during an anti-Israel protest in Lebanon last week. Halutz, backed by Defense Minister Amir Peretz, indicated soldiers will fire at the lower extremities of such persons.

Disputes Still Exist Regarding International Force
The government decided to complete the withdrawal despite a failure to reach agreement between the IDF and the international force regarding the latter's role vis-א-vis Hizbullah.

Another bone of contention is the border village of Rajar, which is half in Israel and half in Lebanon. A limited IDF force will remain in Rajar until the dispute is ironed out. Senior commanders admit this is a weak link in the border chain, providing an access location for terror operations.

Soldiers Still in Captivity
IDF soldiers Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev remain captive in Lebanon, despite the IDF withdrawal - leaving their families in limbo.

“The fighting has stopped, the blockade was lifted, the troops have now left, and we have still not received any sign regarding the well-being of the soldiers,” stated family members. Some of them expressed anger at Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, who has broken several promises regarding the soldiers.

During the war, the prime minister stated repeatedly that Israel would not agree to any ceasefire that does not include the “immediate and unconditional release” of the captive soldiers. This was not actualized, and to date, not even representatives of the International Red Cross have been permitted to see them due to Hizbullah’s hard-line refusal.

Egypt and Jordan are expected to announce a joint initiative to speed up their release, in exchange for hundreds of Arab terrorist prisoners held in Israel.

United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Anan, involved in efforts to obtain the Israelis' release, has stated he believes they are alive, based on unconfirmed reports. To date, there have been no signs proving this to be the case.

It is believed they were wounded during the terror attack along the northern border when they were taken captive, but their conditions remain a mystery at this time.

Gen. (ret.) Uzi Dayan, who heads the public forum to obtain the soldiers' release, stated the government missed a number of opportunities to receive signs regarding the soldiers’ condition. He was referring to Jerusalem’s agreeing to the ceasefire, lifting the blockade, and withdrawing forces - all without receiving evidence of the soldiers' condition.

Next Conflict Not Too Far In the Future
Intelligence community officials are pessimistic regarding the future along the border with Lebanon, with most seemingly in agreement that the next conflict is not too far off in the future.

No one appears willing to accept responsibility for disarming Hizbullah, despite the deployment of Lebanese forces, international troops and the UNIFIL presence. To date, UN officials have indicated that their responsibility includes “monitoring” rather than enforcement.

A number of government officials concur with the assessment, including former defense minister Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer (Labor). He stated that Hizbullah has not abandoned its agenda of attacking Israel, and still possesses enough weapons to carry out future attacks.
 

 

 

 

The Wasted War that accomplished nothing is how Olmert will be remembered. The kidnapped soldiers that supposedly caused the Olmert government to invade Lebanon remain kidnapped. The terrorist rockets remain raining down on the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers towns this very day. I suspect it will not be long before the secular liberal bastion of Tel Aviv will come under attack once again. The barbarians classify all Jews both conservative and liberal as worthy of death according to the Islamic law of righteousness. I think the secular liberalists are beginning to realize this fact. The appeasement the liberals offer the barbarians through giving them large portions of the Holy Land gain no tolerance when it comes to their blood lust for Jews.  l I might remind all that it was not until the secular liberalists came under attack in Tel Aviv that Olmert went into Lebanon. This government has no care about rockets falling on conservative Jews. It is only when they fall on the liberal Jews that a politically correct war is waged in response. A war that accomplished nothing. A total waste that only emboldened the barbarians to continue their well laid plans to eradicate the Jews from the Holy Land. The International Community clearly has no intent to thwart this barbarian plan of attacking Jewish civilians. God is forcing the entire world to chose between the barbarians and the Jews. The choice is very clear today with how the international Community is taking on their responsibility to protect the peace seeking Israeli towns and cities from the aggressive barbarians. This is the same kind of world that offered, and chose Barabbas over Christ.

There is no doubt in my mind that the same mindset of that pitiful generation that offered, and let themselves be persuaded to choose Barabbas over the just LORD Jesus Christ is alive and well today! Israel has been miraculously brought back to the Holy Land in our generation. A third miraculous Exodus has taken place in our time. We are witnesses to the power of the God of the Bible. This Exodus has caused the barbarians to go into a rage! They are seeing the Bible rather then the Koran fulfilling prophecy. They have made the presents of the Jews in the Holy Land an issue over which they will die rather then ever submit. The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. No power on earth can stop Him from establishing His pure and holy Kingdom here on earth. The International Community has sided with the barbarians. They think they have washed their hands of any responsibility as Pilate did as the representative of the world community of his day. Folks, it is not washing with God. The world as well as the Jews were responsible for the rejection and crucifixion of Christ. No amount of spin can change the truth as God determines truth to be. Pilate is in hell today as is Ciaphas the Jewish High Priest for their rejection of the just Christ of the Bible. The International Community has chosen their Barabbas. The secular liberal Jews have endorsed the International Communities demands that they give the barbarians large portions of the Holy Land for nothing more then a lot of spin about a peace that none of them can produce.

Friend, you can't wash your hands from the blood of Christ. He came to provide the needed atonement for sin. The only thing He asked of the world was that they love Him and the righteousness He represents. The world rather loves sin, and rejects His holy and pure just righteousness. It was true the first time He came, and it is true today as preparations are underway for His second coming. This world wants the barbarians to have the Holy Land, and never do they want it to be for a puritanical Kingdom for Christ who threatens righteous judgment on all nations, and all men who reject His own personal attributes as the sacrificial Lamb of the Triune God of the Bible who provided the atonement. Friend, you must come to Him as a lost sinner to be saved. Not to come is to reject Him. He will not force His love on you. You must chose! You can't wash your hands of this responsibility. No spin of justification will wash with God who sees right into the very heart. Either we love Christ, and the righteousness He represents, or we reject Him. We are accepted only if we come with all our heart, soul, and might. Any other spin regarding salvation will never wash with God. Oh friend, won't you come to Him right now? Won't you let Him wash away your sins?

Acts 22:16

16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.
KJV
 

 

Matthew 27:16-26


6 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas .
17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas , or Jesus which is called Christ?
18 For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.
19 When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.
20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas , and destroy Jesus.
21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas .
22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.
23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.
24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.
25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.
26 Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.

145,000 Attend Ramadan Services
13:59 Oct 06, '06 / 14 Tishrei 5767
 

(IsraelNN.com) Security officials reported that 145,000 Muslim worshipers attended Friday Ramadan services on the Temple Mount. There were no reports of disturbances.


Abbas Tells US PA Will Recognize Israel, Says Opposite on PA TV
15:22 Oct 06, '06 / 14 Tishrei 5767
by Hana Levi Julian

 

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas said this week he would ‘fire Hamas’ if the terror group won’t recognize Israel, but sang a different tune on PA TV.

 

Abbas convinced U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice that he is sincere in his commitment to force the PA government to formally acknowledge the Jewish State’s right to exist, said the Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) Thursday.

On PA TV, however, Abbas said “It is not required of Hamas, or of Fatah, or of the Popular Front to recognize Israel.” Abbas is the head of the Fatah party and terror organization, which is currently the minority faction in the PA legislature.

“I do not demand of Hamas nor any other to recognize Israel,” said Abbas in Arabic, “but from the government that works with Israelis in day to day life, yes.”

Rice said she was impressed with the PA leader’s political acumen after their meeting this week. “We have great admiration for you and your leadership,” she said, and committed the U.S. to “redouble efforts” to help PA Arabs.

The PMW is a watchdog organization that monitors Arabic-language media throughout the world and issues a report once a week on its findings.

It can't be a matter of ignorance that this administration compromises with the barbarians. No one can be that naive! I think it is a matter of exasperation? There is no other peace plan, but the Road Map. There should be a plan for the scenario that the Arab Palestinians refuse all efforts to settle their differences with Israel. A plan with teeth that would cause them to forfeit all claims to the Holy Land if they refuse to live there in peace. Because there is only one Road Map plan that is based on the false assumption that giving the barbarian Palestinian Arabs most of the Holy Land they will be satisfied. Folks, they don't want most of it. They want it all, and they want Jewish blood as the way they must get it. All give away plans to this culture have only resulted in their boldly demanding more. As long as their demands are met they will not stop until they have the world. They want to dictatorially impose Islamic righteousness of their own personal making on everyone. The Koran allows them to do this. They are never going to give in, and especially when their terrorism effort is paying off. They boldly can say a lie in English as long as they tell the truth in Arabic. This is Islamic righteousness! This is what is wrong with the Koran. Righteousness and truthfulness only apply to the faithful. The Infidel can be lied to as long as Islam gains without repercussions.

The LORD Jesus Christ represented no religion! He came at a time of great apostasy among the Jews who are God's chosen people. He offered Himself not just to the  Jews who had departed from the Bible, but to the entire world. He only represented Himself when He said "I am the truth!" Not Judaism for He boldly stood against the leaders of His day, but to Himself alone He offered the way to salvation!

John 14:6

6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way , the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
KJV
 

The choice being offered this generation is whether they want Christ as the truth, or they want religious truth. The Moslems are being forced to make a decision through the events taking place in the Holy Land. The choice is whether they are willing to leave apostacy, and come to the person of the LORD Jesus Christ for salvation. 140,000 Said no yesterday. They do not want a Jewish King. They do not want Christ. They only want Islam and the Koran to ever be allowed on the Temple Mount. Islam paid no attention to the Temple Mount as long as it was in the hands of the Islamic Jordanians. Never did large crowds gather on the Mount to express Islamic pride. Now that Israel has become the sovereign, and the Jordanians have refused Israel's offer to take it back. It is the barbaric Arab Palestinians who suddenly now turned the sovereignty issue into a life or death religious righteousness commandment. This is not the truth. The world knows the Temple Mount housed the Jewish Holy Temple that the God of the Bible called His House of Prayer. The God of the Bible is laying claim to His property once again, and the heathen rage!

Acts 4:25-29

25 Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage , and the people imagine vain things?

26 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ.

27 For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,

28 For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.

29 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,
KJV
 

Folks, it is with all boldness that I speak the Word of God as best I understand it. The same mindset that was present at the first coming of Christ is present today at the preparation for His second coming! The same conspiracies of world leaders such as Herod and Pontius Pilate are happening this very day. The gentile nations, and the apostate Jews are not willing to give up their governmental laws. They will never give up their religious laws for the truth as determined by the person of Jesus Christ. His righteousness is without spot or blemish. It is absolutely perfect, and it rests in Him alone. All other forms of righteousness are false when compared to His holy standards. Friend are you prepared to put yourself into the hands of this perfect God of the Bible rather then some religious group claiming they have secrets or power that is not the truth. Friend, there is no salvation for anyone apart from the LORD Jesus Christ who willingly sacrificed Himself on Calvary's cross allowing sin filled men to take His life there. Can you put yourself in His hands? He wants you saved, but only He has the power to forgive your sins. The Bible says He paid the price of salvation with His own precious blood so that you could be saved. So you could have your sins washed away. Won't you come to Him right now, and cast your sin burden upon Him? He never gave the power that is in His blood to any religious denomination. He stands alone on the truth, and only that truth can set you free. Won't you come to Him? Oh friend, won't you kiss the Son while His offer is available?

John 8:32

32 And ye shall know the truth , and the truth shall make you free .
KJV
 

 

 

Psalms 2


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

Hi folks,

 

I have completed the one month course at The Seeing Eye in Morristown New Jersey. I now have a new member of the family. Zeke (Ezekiel) is 1/4 Golden Retriever, and 3/4 Yellow Lab. He is the product of over 50 years of breeding puppies specifically as service dogs for the blind. He is just a wonderful dog. We work well together, and it is clear to me the LORD has His hand in our getting together. The Seeing Eye tells me Zeke should give me 10 years of service before he will have need of being retired. I fully expect the raprure to happen before then.

Thanks for your prayers while I was in training. We have one week at home, and then head to the North Carolina Outer Banks for the annual Lion's fishing tournament for the blind. I'm just so thankful to the LORD for all the help I'm receiving while adjusting to blindness. The Seeing Eye paid for everything this past month resulting in Zeke becoming mine, and now the Lion's Club is paying for my fishing adventure. The LORD is good. He provides through ways we often never expect.

Gaza terrorists arming at "unprecedented" pace

The IDF released information on Friday revealing that the pace of weapons smuggling into the Gaza Strip was increasing dramatically. Israel Channel 2 quoted a senior officer saying that terror groups were arming at an "unprecedented" speed, and that many officials are calling for a re-evaluation of the IDF's strategy in Gaza. Despite intense IDF activity along the security fence in recent days and non-stop air strikes on Gaza weapons depots, terror groups have been importing more than two tons of TNT per month through tunnels along the Egyptian border. Aside from the usual merchandise of explosives, light weapons and ammunition, a number of advanced anti-tank missiles have found their way into Gaza - some of them being used over the weekend during clashes with IDF troops.

 


21 killed during IDF weekend operations in Gaza

Three Israelis injured as Kassams hit Sderot
The Jerusalem Post reports that after three days of intensive counter-terror operations, IDF forces withdrew from the central Gaza Strip on Saturday night, having killed at least 18 terrorist operatives. In all, 21 Palestinians were killed in the fighting. IDF spokesmen said that the operations were an attempt to prevent Kassam rocket attacks on Israel, and Defense Minister Amir Peretz has ordered the military to maintain the pressure on the terrorists behind the Kassam attacks. On Friday night, three Israelis, including a young boy, were injured when a pair of Gaza-launched Kassam rockets hit a Sderot neighborhood, also causing damage to nearby homes and vehicles. Analysis: Trimming the "Terror Lawn" - Jpost


 

 

 

 

The non-stop terrorism on the Jews of Israel continues as  world politicians make great speeches about peace efforts being contemplated. The doors are wide open for the rearming of the Gaza barbarians, and I would imagine the same is true for the Lebanese barbarians as well. The Islamic world is giddy with the success they had as Israel fought a liberal politically correct war. The terrorist barbarians have no fear now that they know there is no retribution while they arm in preparation for more terrorism then before, and Israel can only fight with both hands tied behind their back because of the gentile nations pressure on them. The barbarians are the ones who should have their towns and villages surrounded by walls. They have earned such imprisonment through their actions. This phony democracy based on Islamic law rather then Christian law allows the barbarians to go into animalistic frenzy. They do not need fanatical leaders. It is the religion based on Allah that produces this terrorist attitude. They have no desire for freedom to practice Islam. They want the freedom to force everyone else to practice Islam.

The phony peace makers are always slow to face up to reality. Islam is arming in the Holy Land for only one purpose, and that is to murder every Jew they can get. This people do not want peace. They want to murder Jews! They dance in the streets passing out sweets to the children every time a Jew is murdered. Their joy in life is to kill, or have one of their fellows kill. They are truly barbarians of the worst sort. The Palestinian Arabs voted for the worst of the worst barbarians to represent them. Folks democracy based on Islam is not the answer. The answer is democracy based on the Bible. This is the one great truth the politicians do not understand. What made democracy great was not the politics of it, but the God who was honored through it!

The world is heading for a showdown with Islam. Let me be clear that there are no moderate Islamists. As long as they reject the Bible for the Koran there is only barbarianism as the ultimate goal. The ultimate end of Islam is to force it down everyone's throat. The Koran must be lifted above, and must literally replace the Bible according to Islamic law. Right now the Bible is the book of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob not Abraham, Ishmael, and Esau. This fundamental contrast between the Bible and the Koran makes no room for compromise. One is truth, and the other is a big fat lie! God is about to prove Himself in the events taking place in the Holy Land.

The LORD Jesus Christ made it clear which book represents the truth.

Matthew 22:29-33

29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.

30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.

31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,

32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob ? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.

33 And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine.
KJV

 

Yes friend, Jesus Christ is not the god of the dead as is Allah who encourages the suicide of little children in order to murder Jews. Jesus Christ is the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. His doctrine opposed the Koran at it's very foundation. Islam is soon to be nothing more then a blasphemous memory. Read Ezekiel 39 to discover the fate of Islam after they invade the Holy Land. Read Isaiah 11 to discover what the Biblical plan is through the branch of Jesse, the father of David the King, and of the linage of the LORD Jesus Christ. Friend Jesus is coming again! This time not as the babe of Bethlehem, but as the LORD of Lords and King of kings. He is coming to establish His law of perfect righteousness. The Bible says He is coming in judgment! Oh the fate of those who refused His offer of salvation. Their eternal fate is established in the Bible already. Oh friend, won't you come to Christ before it is too late.

 

Isaiah 11:1-12


11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den.
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.
11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
KJV

Revelation 7:1-4


7:1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.

2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,

3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
KJV
 


Revelation 7:6

6 Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthali were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.

A Lost Tribe of Israel Celebrates its Return
14:16 Oct 17, '06 / 25 Tishrei 5767
by IsraelNN Staff

 

Hundreds of veteran Bnei Menashe immigrants from northeastern India gathered in Kiryat Arba this week to celebrate their return to Israel and the Jewish people after 27 centuries of exile.

A special day over the Sukkot festival was arranged on their behalf by the Jerusalem-based Shavei Israel organization. The Bnei Menashe were treated to a series of fun and educational activities that ranged from drum lessons to Torah lectures to face painting for children and the construction of a traditional Indian bamboo hut. The event was organized in cooperation with the Kiryat Arba Municipal Council and its chairman, Tzvi Katzover.

The Bnei Menashe, who reside in the Indian states of Mizoram and Manipur, near the border with Burma, claim descent from the tribe of Menashe, one of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel exiled by the Assyrians over 2,700 years ago.

Nearly 1,000 members of the community have made aliyah (immigrated to Israel) over the past decade thanks largely to the work of Shavei Israel, headed by Michael Freund, and Amishav, headed by Rabbi Eliyahu Avichayil.

A central theme of this week's celebration was the excitement running through the community over the impending arrival in Israel next month of 218 new Bnei Menashe immigrants, the largest group ever to come here at one time.

The group, which underwent conversion to Judaism last year in India by a rabbinical court dispatched by Israel's Chief Rabbinate, is slated to make aliyah in late November. It will be the first batch of Bnei Menashe immigrants allowed into the country since 2003, when Israel's Interior Ministry decided to halt their arrival.

The Jewish Agency, headed by Ze'ev Bielski, will oversee the group's arrival in the Jewish state, as well as various aspects of its absorption in the country.

Through its team of emissaries, Shavei Israel operates three Jewish educational centers in India for the Bnei Menashe, where they study Hebrew and Jewish tradition. All of the organization's work is in accordance with Jewish law and is under the guidance and supervision of Israel's Chief Rabbinate.

Has God brought back the Jewish tribe of M anasses to fulfill His end time prophecy? Will there be 12,000 of this tribe ready to fill their prophetic roll during the Great Tribulation? Right now the numbers are not there, and more importantly the sealing needed to produce a new Jewish religious foundation for the Kingdom Age. My personal feelings on this matter is that I just do not know? I expect God to literally fulfill prophecy, and this sudden appearance of a group claiming the inheritance of the Tribe of Manassas fits those expectations. I would imagine the Jews have been careful not to allow any false claims of heritage to creep into their blood line. I know many Christian cults make all kind of claims to being a part of the so called 10 lost tribes. The Jews have rejected their claims out of hand. They are gentiles trying to usurp blessings God has promised only to the natural born Jews.

The Jews are familiar with the wilily Gibeonites. I would hope they are cautious as to not making the same mistake in this generation?

Joshua 9:3-6

3 And when the inhabitants of Gibeon heard what Joshua had done unto Jericho and to Ai,

4 They did work wilily, and went and made as if they had been ambassadors, and took old sacks upon their asses, and wine bottles, old, and rent, and bound up;

5 And old shoes and clouted upon their feet, and old garments upon them; and all the bread of their provision was dry and mouldy.

6 And they went to Joshua unto the camp at Gilgal, and said unto him, and to the men of Israel, We be come from a far country: now therefore make ye a league with us.
KJV
 

The blessings God promised the Jews in the next dispensation are a wondrous thing. The Kingdom Age is the most glorious of all dispensations. Many will desire to make a league with the Jews knowing the Almighty God of the Bible is going to lift them up to greatness. The Jews of today do not realize it will be the King of the Kingdom Age that makes it so great. It is His righteousness that brings peace to the whole earth. It will be the Biblical Law as He interprets it that will rule all of mankind. It will be His righteousness with teeth. Today it is optional to submit to Christ, and His holiness. In the next dispensation such an option will not be available. The Bible tells us again and again that every knee shall bend. Only those who bow down to this coming Jewish King will be allowed into the Kingdom. They must all submit! All others will perish! It is not some religious victory, but the victory of  a single savior who won the ultimate victory over sin at Calvary. This is the clear teaching of what will happen at the Second Coming of Christ. A 1000 year reign of righteousness where sin is outlawed, and Satan himself bound.

Revelation 20:1-5


20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.

2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan , and bound him a thousand years,

3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
KJV

Friend, it matters not what tribe you belong in this dispensation. You can come to Christ for salvation. The Great Creator God of the Bible sent His only begotten Son to save the lost from sin. You can either accept this great truth, and come to Christ for salvation or you can reject Him. The Bible tells us the masses of this generation are Christ rejecters. Many may have the name of Christ on their lips, but their works prove He is not the center of their hearts. These phony Christians only await the mark of the antichrist to show where their real alliances lay. By the masses they will follow this coming great deceiver, and the God of the Bible says they are going to be without excuse. When true righteous salvation was offered, they rejected it, and the holy Christ who offered them the redemption His blood has bought was rejected as well. The antichrist with his phony righteousness will prove their lip service Christianity was valueless. They will flock to his phony righteousness as flies to flypaper. His mark will spell out their doom. Oh dear friend, come to the holy Christ of the Bible who loves you in all His perfect righteousness. He wants you saved, but his attribute of holiness forbids Him to accept sin in you. You must break free by coming to Him. There is no other way in which you can make differentiation between good and evil. Between the Biblical Christ and the antichrist. Won't you come today? Won't you come for the cleansing of your sin filled soul?

Friend, all will say they exhibited Christian charity. But, the Holy Christ who sees into the heart will make His own judgment as to which will go into the Kingdom, and which will go into outer darkness. Be warned that not all claming a heritage in Christ will receive such a holy gift.

 

Matthew 25:30-46

30 And
cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
31
When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And
before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats :
33 And he shall set the
sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall
the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
41 Then shall
he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
46 And
these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
KJV

Psalms 2:6-8

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

7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

170,000 Muslims Attending Temple Mount Services
13:33 Oct 20, '06 / 28 Tishrei 5767

(IsraelNN.com) Police report 170,000 Muslim worshipers are attending Temple Mount prayer services today, the last Friday of Ramadan. No disturbances are being reported.


Ahmadinejad: Thanks to Allah, Israel will soon disappear

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad declared Friday that Israel no longer had any reason to exist and would soon disappear. "This regime, thanks to Allah, has lost the reason for its existence," he said. "You should believe that this regime is disappearing." The fiery, Holocaust-denying leader went on to call Israel's leaders a "group of terrorists" and threatened any country that supported the Jewish state. "You imposed a group of terrorists ... on the region," he said, addressing the US and its allies. "It is in your own interest to distance yourself from these criminals… This is an ultimatum. Don't complain tomorrow."
 



 

 

Yes, I agree it is true. Israel has no reason to exist. The God of the Bible miraculously brought the Jews back to their Promised Land in this modern day Third Exodus. In 1967 this same God gave them all of Judah and Samaria along with full sovereignty over the City of Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. God expected the Jews to turn back to Him as a result of His goodness, but they slapped Him in the face. The political Jews wanting to please the gentile nations gave the keys to the Temple Mount back to the Islamites. Just this past year they gave the city of Jericho along with the Gaza Strip to the Islamites. Another slap in the face to the God of the Bible. Jericho stood for Jewish victory in faithfulness to their God during the First Exodus, but stands for Jewish failure in this Third Exodus. The Temple stands in even greater importance as the center of all biblical Judaism. Right now the Jews are dominated by liberal secular politicians, and apostate religious leadership totally blind to the Biblical importance of the Temple. These Jews in this condition truly have no reason to exist! The Islamists of our day want the Temple Mount far more then do the majority of Jews living in Israel. The whole purpose God brought this generation of Jews back to their Holy Promised Land was so that they would build the last Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. It unites Biblical Judaism with the coming Kingdom Age. Biblical Judaism as described in the Book of Leviticus which is a fifth part of the Torah the holiest part of the Jewish Scriptures can not be established until the Temple is built. Neither the politicians or the religious apostates are willing to give up power to a new Biblically centered Judaism that would lead the Jewish nation into following God. The apostate  plan is to give the sovereignty of the Mount to the Islamist's along with Judah and Samaria which includes most of the city of Jerusalem. God is not going to allow such blasphemy to win the day. Folks, I say and say again watch the Temple Mount if you want to see the God of the Bible working in this our generation. Don't watch the phony TV faith healers who are padding their pockets as the money changers of old, but watch the Temple Mount. The Jews of today have no purpose to exist without the last Biblical Holy Jewish Temple. They must go, or be converted to a Biblical perspective. That is exactly what God has planed as He has revealed His future plans for the Temple Mount. The heart must change first!

Ezekiel 11:19-21

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

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

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

The dry bones have come together one more time in our generation. The Third Exodus is now history. The plan of God will not be put on hold. The whole purpose of all world history is the LORD Jesus Christ. He is coming again! He will not permit the heathen Islamists to rule over His Holy Hill. He will not permit the apostate Jews or Christians to gain any false victory over this most Holy Place. Watch the Temple Mount!

Friend, have you come to this coming King who is going to place His throne on this Holy Hill? Do you know Jesus as your LORD and Savior? There is only one way to be saved, and that is to come to Him. No religion has the power to wash away sin. Only the LORD Jesus Christ who laid down His life at Calvary so sins can be forgiven can save. He bought your atonement for sin when He shed His precious blood as a sacrifice for you. He requires you to voluntarily come to Him for that Biblical salvation He offers. He has brought the Jews back to their Promised Land to redeem them. He will not fail. Your redemption hangs on your own decision to come to Him to be saved. Do not be among the Christ rejecters who seal their fate in Hell. Come to the LORD Jesus Christ and live!

John 11:25-26

25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live :

26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
KJV

John 14:19-21

19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live , ye shall live also.

20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
KJV
 

 

 

Ezekiel 37:1-6


37:1 The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the
valley which was full of bones,

2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.

3 And he said unto me,
Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.

4 Again he said unto me,
Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones , hear the word of the LORD.

5 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones;
Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:

6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and
ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
KJV
