Iran talks yield promise for further negotiations

By Yossi Melman, Haaretz Correspondent

 

GENEVA - The United States will press Iran and not allow it to stall long enough to develop a nuclear program, American officials Thursday told Haaretz at the Geneva Talks 2 forum. The talks on Tehran's nuclear ambitions are being held between Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council - the United States, Russia, China, France and Britain - plus Germany.

The negotiations ended with a number of resolutions, primarily the decision to have another round of talks later this month.

This agreement - which suggests neither party was interested in a breakdown in talks - was reached at the end of consultations that began in the morning and went on until 5 P.M. in the afternoon Thursday. The talks between William Burns, leading Washington's delegation, and Iran's top negotiator, Saeed Jalili, were the first meaningful discussions on bilateral issues since both countries broke off diplomatic relations 30 years ago.

After the talks, held in an 18th century villa outside the Swiss city, European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana and Jalili spoke with reporters at the Intercontinental in Geneva. Solana said the meeting with Iran was the first such encounter in 15 months.

The starting position of the six countries negotiating with Iran, Solana said, was agreed upon last week in New York in a meeting by the countries' foreign ministers. Solana said that all the issues that the ministers decided to negotiate were put forth in the Geneva talks.

Solana went on to explain that the proposal of the the six-country bloc is a "freeze in return for a freeze," meaning a freeze on the Iranian efforts to enrich uranium on its own soil in return for a freeze on the sanctions imposed against Iran three years ago by the United Nations Security Council, and a halt on new sanctions.

According to the EU official, the talks yielded three meaningful results. The first was the very fact that the forum took place. The second was the agreement on a follow-up meeting and the third was Iran's statement that it would cooperate fully and immediately with the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Iran, Solana said, agreed to allow international inspectors to visit its recently-revealed nuclear fuel plant at Qom within the next few weeks. The UN's nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, meanwhile announced it will send it head, Mohamed ElBaradei, to Iran this weekend to "work out the details" for inspection of the Islamic Republic's second nuclear facility.

Additionally, IAEA experts are scheduled to meet with Iranian officials to "determine principles for nuclear cooperation."

Solana said Iran had also agreed to export its own low-enriched uranium from one specific facility, a small research facility in Tehran producing isotopes for medical purposes, for further enrichment.

Solana portrayed that agreement as progress toward Iran agreeing to limit its own enrichment activities. The agreement does not apply to the much bigger Iranian enrichment facility in Natanz.

Iran maintains that all of its uranium enrichment is for peaceful purposes, mostly for energy production.

Solana did not answer Haaretz's question as to whether the talks with Iran will have a deadline. Jalili, speaking at a separate press conference, presented the talks as a success for Iran, stressing they did not only focus on the Iranian issue but also about the global economy.

He said the threat of a military strike against Iran has been dropped, and criticized "the world's silence" in face of threats to bomb Iranian facilities.

Reuters reported Thursday that U.S. President Barack Obama warned after the talks in Geneva that American patience with the Islamic Republic was not unlimited.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton called the six-power talks with Iran held in Geneva on nuclear issues a productive session that has opened the door to a positive outcome.

 

 

 Talk, talk, talk, while the world burns down around us. We have entered our best talkers who can talk for years accomplishing nothing, but spinning it into greatness. They have entered their best talkers who can talk for decades in a well planed stalling process intended to keep the talks going until they are ready to attack. The truth is the Iranian government has for 30 years been planning to attack Israel with a nuclear backup to assure victory.  Allah has given this vision to the Iranian leadership, and no amount of pressure, or sanctions by the United States will ever cause Iran (Persia) to forsake Allah. The Bible is clear that the Jewish/Christian God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is going to use the false god Allah to draw Islam, and specifically Persia into a death trap on the mountains and in the fields of Israel.

 

Ezekiel 38:4-5

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

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

 

KJV

 

The God of the Bible intends to pull Islam in like a huge fish. Once hooked it is only a short time before The battle ends in death. The bait is the blasphemous Koran that tells Islam they will rule the world after they destroy the Jews. The Koran tells Islam that on that faithful day the rocks and trees where the Jews will hide behind will tell the fierce Islamic warrior that a Jew is hiding behind me. Islam believes Allah, and the Iranian government believes they are the fierce warriors of which the Koran predicts. There are no talks with the infidels that can change such theology. Obama is the perfect liberal patsy of which Islam has been waiting. I think this nuclear facility built in the light of day for the world satellites to see is a deception. It is the nuclear facilities we can't see that worry me. I only wonder how many nuclear bombs have already been assembled? Be certain it will be revealed when Iran is ready to invade Israel. Even if Iran lies, and says they have thousands when they only have a few, I doubt an Obama would want to intervene with a threat to wipe all of America off the map. A three pronged Islamic invasion of Israel as described ion Ezekiel 38 & 39 is now a real possibility. Nukes do not need be used, but a nuclear Iran prevents the Jews from holding the nuclear Ace in the hole anymore. Islam knows they hold the numbers as their Ace outnumbering the Jews by hundreds to one. They win either with, or without nukes. The Iranian Islamic government is ready to sacrifice the nation to destroy the Jews , but only if they know they can win. The Iranian government relishes the thought of being martyrs for Allah. They are religious fanatics ready to engage the patsy Obama in these last days.

 

 

Friend, It is too late for this evil generation. God has been mocked for the last time. He is mocked by the phony Arabic god of the barbarians who are demanding the Holy Land be turned over to them. He is mocked by main stream Christianity who embrace all the false christ's of the phony signs and miracles crowds. The false christ's of the prosperity crowds. The false christ's of the Roman Catholic Church, and the liberal denominations. All who have turned Christ into another worldly religion are about to find their mocking has come to an end. All who reject the Christ of the Bible are about to see their mocking tongues face Biblical judgment. It will start with Islam! God is about to open the door for the Jews to build the Third Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount by ending Islamic influence over the Holy Land forever. A new Biblical foundation is about to be laid in the Holy Land that will be exclusively Jewish. 

 

Revelation 7:1-10

7 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.

5 Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.

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.

7 Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.

8 Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.

9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;

10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.

 

KJV

It is only the unique Ezekiel's Temple that will have a throne, and I'm convinced these Jews living on the lands designated for each of the tribes mentioned living in the Holy Land will be led by the Two Witnesses of Revelation chapter 11 in building, and establishing the holy acceptable worship of Ezekiel's Temple. Their testimony to the world will be the Third Holy Jewish Temple with a throne for the soon returning Jewish Messiah King. This Biblical prophetic event can only happen if Islamic influence is removed from the Holy Land as is described in Ezekiel 39.

 

Ezekiel 43:7

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

 

KJV


Ezekiel 39

The End of Islam


39:1 Therefore, 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:
2 And 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:
3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.

4 Thou 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.

5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.


7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken.


9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years:
10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD.

 

11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamon-gog.


12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.


13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD.

14 And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.


15 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man's bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamon-gog.
16 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.


17 And, 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.

18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.

20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.


21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.

22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward.

23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.
24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.

25 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;

26 After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.

27 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations;
28 Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which cause them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there.
29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.

30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Could Israel Face 'Third Intifada'?

by Maayana Miskin

 

(IsraelNN.com) MK Moshe Matalon of Yisrael Beiteinu (Israel Our Home) warned Monday night that Israel could be facing a “third Intifada,” as evidenced by recent violence in Jerusalem. “The government of Israel must use a heavy and uncompromising hand against inciters and rioters in Jerusalem,” he said.

Matalon called to take action against Sheikh Raed Salah in particular. Sheikh Salah, a leader of the Islamic Movement, has accused Israel of planning to destroy the Al Aksa mosque on the Temple Mount.

"Send the arch-inciter, Sheikh Raed Salah, to his followers in Gaza,” Matalon said. Israel must “terminate the Third Intifada with prejudice,” he concluded.

Riots continued in Arab neighborhoods of Jerusalem on Monday as Muslim leaders and the Palestinian Authority called to “protect Al-Aksa” and “prevent the Judaization of Jerusalem.” Several rioters have been arrested for allegedly attacking police officers and Jewish civilians with stones.

Police revealed Monday that wheelbarrows filled with heavy stones of the type used recently by Muslim Temple Mount rioters were found hidden on the Temple Mount the day before. The discovery indicates that the “spontaneous” Temple Mount riots were planned in advance, police hinted.

'Second Intifada' and the Temple Mount
Palestinian Authority Arabs term the bloody years-long terror war that began in 2000 “the Second Intifada” or “the Al-Aksa Intifada.” Many claim that the fighting, which included hundreds of suicide bombings and other attacks on Israeli civilians, began when then-Prime Minister Ariel Sharon visited the Temple Mount.

Sharon's visit was followed by Muslim riots calling to “protect Al-Aksa.” Several Palestinian Authority Arabs were killed while clashing with police and soldiers during the violent riots.

Israel rejects claims that Sharon's visit sparked a “spontaneous uprising” that led to the terror war. “It is clear that the current wave of Palestinian terrorism, which began in the wake of the Camp David summit failure, has nothing to do with a spontaneous Palestinian action to 'resist the occupation.' The Palestinian leadership had taken a strategic decision to abandon the path to peace and to use violence as their primary tactic for advancing their agenda,” says a government statement on the violence.

'Third Intifada' fears From August
Fears that the PA would begin inciting towards a “third intifada” surfaced in August, as the Fatah party that rules the PA met in Bethlehem and called for “resistance” against Israel. The Fatah conference delegates included several arch-terrorists.

The virulent rhetoric heard at the conference led former Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) head Avi Dichter, now a politician with Kadima, to warn that another bloody terrorist war could be on the horizon.

PA officials also warned of a “third Intifada.” In September, the PA official in charge of the “settlement portfolio,” Shassan Daghlas, told Xinhua that Jewish growth in Judea and Samaria could lead to “a popular uprising against Israel,” while PA-based expert Abdel Hantash told the news agency that “The chances of the eruption of another Palestinian popular Intifada against Israel are high.”

 

 

 

You cam count on a third intifada with violence that will make all other Arab riots pale in comparison. I watched this coming when last week Arab rioters stoned some French tourists on the Temple Mount mistaking them for praying Jews. I know wiggly Frenchmen are mistaken for many things, but praying Jews is a new one. It was clear the Arabs were ready to riot, and wanted only some valid excuse that they can present to the world blaming the Jews. It may be the Arab rioting has already started. The leadership pumped up the gullible Arabs, and quelling what has started may not be possible. I would love to see this developed into a permanent ban of all Arabs from the Temple Mount, but I doubt I will see this happen. I suspect the rapture will have to happen first. I know a new leadership must be raised up in Israel. I know a back to the Bible foundation must be laid among the Jews before this secularized generation will have the boldness  to confront Islam. Right now the Jewish leadership is afraid of being branded the cause of the Third Intifada. It would be political suicide to boldly challenge Islam over the Temple Mount. The Jews need to turn from political leadership to spiritual leadership before they will ever see the boldness necessary to overthrow Islam on the Temple Mount so the Third Holy Jewish Temple can be built. That kind of leadership does not exist, but according to the Bible it is coming. John lived to see the Second Holy Jewish Temple destroyed, but God took John in a vision from 56he Island of Patmos to Jerusalem at the future time of our present generation. John saw a Third Holy Jewish Temple standing where all the other Temples also stood. He recorded the event in Revelations chapter 11.

 

Revelation 11:1-8

11 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.

2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

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

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

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

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

7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

 

KJV

What will be their testimony that will take 3 1/2 years to accomplish? What is the prophecy they will be responsible to fulfill? What ever they do it will all take place in Jerusalem. Here is the spiritual leadership the Jews are lacking today. Here are two men with undeniable power. None will be able to thwart them from fulfilling the prophecy to which they are called until there witness is finished! Only then is the beast (anti-christ) allowed to kill them, and this happens 3 1/2 years into the Great Tribulation at the time when the anti-christ usurps God by sitting on the throne that had been prepared for the Jewish Messiah and King. A throne which only Ezekiel's Temple possesses. 

 

Ezekiel 43:7

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

 

KJV

 

Yes, it appears the Two Witnesses of John's vision have the same prophetic responsibility as that of the two olive trees of whom Zechariah spoke after the First Temple was destroyed. In Zechariah they were Zerubbabel The Governor, and Joshua the High Priest. One to build the Second Temple, and the other to establish acceptable Holy Worship within. 

 

Zechariah 4:1-6

4 And the angel that talked with me came again, and waked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep,

2 And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof:

3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.

4 So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord?

5 Then the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.

6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.

 

KJV

The only references in the Bible to two olive trees appears only in Zechariah and Revelations. I can only assume their responsibilities arte the same. Build the Temple of God, and establish acceptable Holy Worship within. When the Church Age dispensation ends so does the era of world evangelism! Now it is the world that must come to God as was the case in the Old Testament Jewish Age. There will again be only one place on the planet where God dwells, and that will be in the city of Jerusalem on the Temple Mount. Christian friend, understand the Church Age is over at this point in time. The Jewish Kingdom Age is just about to begin with the return of the King of the Jews!

 

Matthew 27:37

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

 

KJV

Yes friend, it is Jesus who comes at the end of the Great Tribulation to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Ezekiel's Temple as the King of the Jews. Armageddon ends the reign of the anti-christ, and the times of the gentiles. Never again will the gentiles rule planet earth. From this time forward it will be Christ, and Christ alone. The Jewish Christ of the Bible not the phony gentileized phony christ of today's Christianity. It will be the Biblical Jewish Messiah who will sit on the throne in Ezekiel's Temple under who's rule the lion will lie down with the lamb. It is this evil generation that is about to be judged, and will open the door for the rest of the Bible to come to pass. The promises made to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob must be honored. The Bible must come full circled. Woe to all who would impede the fulfillment of this miraculous Third Exodus of our generation. Woe to all who would stand in the way of Ezekiel's Temple.

How Turkey was lost

by Caroline Glick‏

Once the apotheosis of a pro-Western, dependable Muslim democracy, this week Turkey officially left the Western alliance and became a full member of the Iranian axis.

It isn't that Ankara's behavior changed fundamentally in recent days. There is nothing new in its massive hostility toward Israel and its effusive solicitousness toward the likes of Syria and Hamas. Since the Islamist AKP party first won control over the Turkish government in the 2002 elections, led by AKP chairman Recip Tayyip Erdogan, the Turks have incrementally and inexorably moved the formerly pro-Western Muslim democracy into the radical Islamist camp populated by the likes of Iran, Syria, Hizbullah, al-Qaida and Hamas.

What made Turkey's behavior this week different from its behavior in recent months and years is that its attacks were concentrated, unequivocal and undeniable for everyone outside of Israel's scandalously imbecilic and flagellant media.

Until this week, both Israel and the US were quick to make excuses for Ankara. When in 2003 the AKP-dominated Turkish parliament prohibited US forces from invading Iraq through Kurdistan, the US blamed itself. Rather than get angry at Turkey, the Bush administration argued that its senior officials had played the diplomatic game poorly.

In February 2006, when Erdogan became the first international figure to host Hamas leaders on an official state visit after the jihadist group won the Palestinian elections, Jerusalem sought to explain away his diplomatic aggression. Israeli leaders claimed that Erdogan's red carpet treatment for mass murderers who seek the physical destruction of Israel was not due to any inherent hostility on the part of the AKP regime toward Israel. Rather, it was argued that Ankara simply supported democracy and that the AKP, as a formerly outlawed Islamist party, felt an affinity toward Hamas as a Muslim underdog.

Jerusalem made similar excuses for Ankara when during the 2006 war with Hizbullah Turkey turned a blind eye to Iranian weapons convoys to Lebanon that traversed Turkey; when Turkey sided with Hamas against Israel during Operation Cast Lead, and called among other things for Israel to be expelled from the UN; and when Erdogan caused a diplomatic incident this past January by castigating President Shimon Peres during a joint appearance at the Davos conference. So, too, Turkey's open support for Iran's nuclear weapons program and its galloping trade with Teheran and Damascus, as well as its embrace of al-Qaida financiers have elicited nothing more than grumbles from Israel and America.

Initially, this week Israel sought to continue its policy of making excuses for Turkish aggression against it. On Sunday, after Turkey disinvited the IAF from the Anatolian Eagle joint air exercise with Turkey and NATO, senior officials like Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon and opposition leader Tzipi Livni tried to make light of the incident, claiming that Turkey remains Israel's strategic ally.

But Turkey wasted no time in making fools of them. On Monday, 11 Turkish government ministers descended on Syria to sign a pile of cooperation agreements with Iran's Arab lackey. The Foreign Ministry didn't even have a chance to write apologetic talking points explaining that brazen move before Syria announced it was entering a military alliance with Turkey and would be holding a joint military exercise with the Turkish military. Speechless in the wake of Turkey's move to hold military maneuvers with its enemy just two days after it canceled joint training with Israel, Jerusalem could think of no mitigating explanation for the move.

Tuesday was characterized by escalating verbal assaults on the Jewish state. First Erdogan renewed his libelous allegations that Israel deliberately killed children in Gaza. Then he called on Turks to learn how to make money like Jews do.

Erdogan's anti-Israel and anti-Semitic blows were followed on Tuesday evening by Turkey's government-controlled TRT1 television network's launch of a new prime-time series portraying IDF soldiers as baby- and little girl-killers who force Palestinian women to deliver stillborn babies at roadblocks and line up groups of Palestinians against walls to execute them by firing squad.

The TRT1 broadcast forced Israel's hand. Late on Tuesday, the Foreign Ministry announced it was launching an official protest with the Turkish Embassy. Unfortunately, it was unclear who would be coming to the Foreign Ministry to receive the demarche, since Turkey hasn't had an ambassador in Israel for three weeks.

TURKEY'S BREAK with the West; its decisive rupture with Israel and its opposition to the US in Iraq and Iran was predictable. Militant Islam of the AKP variety has been enjoying growing popularity and support throughout Turkey for many years. The endemic corruption of Turkey's traditional secular leaders increased the Islamists' popularity. Given this domestic Turkish reality, it is possible that Erdogan and his fellow Islamists' rise to power was simply a matter of time. ...

 

This break of Turkey from the West was predictable from the Bible. The Islamic invasion of Israel as predicted in Ezekiel 38 & 39. Ezekiel records Togarmah as one of the key players. Togarmah is found listed among the descendants of Noah.

 

Genesis 10:1-3

10 Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.

2 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.

3 And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.

 

KJV

Ezekiel is the only prophet who goes all the way back to the times of Noah to identify the nations that will invade Israel. He is unique in using the Book of Genesis (generations) to eternally fix those land areas where the sons, grandsons, and great grandsons of Noah settled after the flood. Today these land areas, with the sole exception of the Gog, are all Islamic, and this includes Togarmah! It should be no surprise along with today's news that Iran (Persia) should also be among the key players of this Islamic invasion.

 

 

Notice how many of the descendants of Noah are used by Ezekiel in his prophecy of this coming Islamic invasion. Gomer, Magog, Tubal, Meshech, and Togarmah. This is well planed when we conceder the words of Christ when referring to the last days, and this Islamic invasion. 

 

Matthew 24:37

37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

 

KJV

This may be a big surprise to the secular media, but God had it all planed from the very beginning, It is all revealed in the Bible. Togarmah had to break ties with the West. Turkey had to reveal it's hate for the Jews. The Islamic Turks are predicted to join the Northern prong of the 3 pronged Islamic Invasion of the Holy Land. They can be expected to invade with the intent to murder every Jewish man, woman, and child. Already they believe the lie that this is what the Jews are doing to the Arabs in Gaza. The war drums of hate the Jews are banging louder and louder in Togarmah. 


 

Ezekiel 38:1-7

38 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

3 And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

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

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

6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.

7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.

Encouraging Jewish Ties to Temple Mount

by Hillel Fendel

(IsraelNN.com) A large-scale gathering will take place in central Jerusalem next week featuring rabbis and public figures calling on the Jewish public to visit the Temple Mount “in purity.”

The event will be held on Sunday, the 7th of Cheshvan, a day after the anniversary of Maimonides’ visit to the Temple Mount in 1166.  Maimonides, the renowned Torah giant known as the Rambam, later wrote of his pilgrimage to the Holy Land, "We left Acco for Jerusalem under perilous conditions. I entered into 'the great and holy house' [the Temple Mount] and prayed there on the sixth day of the month of Cheshvan.”

The Rambam further wrote that he visited the Machpelah Cave on the 9th of Cheshvan, and that he vowed to make both those dates “a special holiday [to mark the occasions] on which I will rejoice with prayer, food and drink.”

The event is being held on the backdrop of the closure of the holy site to all Jews throughout the weeklong Sukkot holiday, when many had planned on visiting. The police explained that they had no choice but to close it because of the Arab riots in the area. Hundreds of Jews visited the site after the holiday.

The rabbis and public figures will also protest the “invasive and humiliating” police checks that leading rabbis have recently been forced to undergo when they wish to ascend to the Mount – checks to which non-religious Jews and other visitors are not subject.

So far, the list of participating rabbis includes Rabbi Nachum Rabinovitch, head of the Birkat Moshe hesder yeshiva in Maaleh Adumim, Rabbis Dov Lior, Re’em HaCohen, Yuval Cherlow, YIsrael Ariel, and others. MKs Uri Ariel, Aryeh Eldad, Uri Orbach, Michael Ben-Ari and Otniel Shneller will also be on hand.

Some opinions say that Maimonides did not actually ascend to the Temple Mount, but rather prayed in a synagogue adjoining the Mount. In fact, Jews have long held that entry to the Mount is forbidden by severe Biblical injunction, due to our Jewish-legal impure state.

In recent years, however, a growing number of rabbis feel that this ban can be limited only to the holiest areas of the Temple Mount. This is due to recent research showing conclusively that much of the Mount was not part of the original Temple and can therefore, under certain circumstances, be visited. Ritual immersion in a mikveh is one of the prerequisites.

Rambam Visited a Shtiebl?!
Rabbi Chaim Richman of the Temple Institute in Jerusalem is adamantly in favor of taking the proper precautions and visiting the Mount. "It is very frustrating that there are people that go to the extent of even doubting that the Rambam visited the Mount," Rabbi Richman told Arutz-7. "He writes that he entered the 'great and holy house,' a term used in all our prayers to refer to the Temple, and he is exceedingly emotional in his writing on the experience, something that is very rare for the rationalist rabbi, whose works are known for their exacting language. Do they expect us to believe that he risked his life to visit a shtiebl [makeshift synagogue] nearby? Some people are so stuck in the thinking of 'we don't go there' that they can't accept that he went there. But anyone who reads the text can clearly see what his stance was."

Organizer Yehuda Glick said, “We will declare with a loud and clear voice that closing the Temple Mount to Jews because of Arab violence is clearly not acceptable in a Jewish and democratic state.”


 

 

 

This is all politics. It is based on the life of a blasphemous Jewish leader who taught the Jews to continue to reject their true Messiah, and foolishly hope a more worldly man-centered Messiah is still coming. Rambam was undoubtedly a great scholar, but so was Einstein. Coming to the truth of Christ is not based on super intellect. Even little children can understand enough to come to this Christ of the Bible for salvation. It is grown men like the Rambam who add unbiblical man invented traditions to the Bible turning it into religion rather then the pure Word of God. They then teach the children their lies. Now, an entire generation of Jews have turned from the Bible to these man-made traditions of today's Judaism. Only God through a miraculous changing of the Jewish heart can redeem such a blind generation. Only the building of a perfect Holy Jewish Temple where acceptable sacrifice can be offered, this time in remembrance of Calvary, will change this situation. The Jews who will gather to honor Rabbi Rambam do not possess the needed heart condition necessary for a back to the Bible movement among the Jews. It is only more of the blasphemous Jewish religion that left the Bible almost 2,000 years ago. Islam need not worry about these impotent Jews who are only talk. The Jews Islam fears are the ones who will build Ezekiel's Temple with a throne dedicated to the soon returning Jewish Messiah \ king, the LORD Jesus Christ. Islam believes the Bible even more then today's main stream Christianity and Judaism. They believe, and tremble! They are sworn unto death that they will stop any Jewish Temple from ever being built on the Temple Mount. 

Friend, what about you? Are you sworn unto the death that you will never submit your life to the LORD Jesus Christ of the Bible? Are you dedicated to live out your life in sin? It is this Christ of the Bible who sacrificed Himself as the perfect atonement for sin at Calvary. Only He has the power to forgive sin. Religion can't save. Only Christ can perform such a miracle. Only this Christ of the Bible has the power to change a heart of sin into a heart desiring Biblical righteousness. Friend, won't you come to this Christ, and live?


 

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.

6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds:

Israel Plans Major Excavation at Western Wall

by Samuel Sokol

 

(IsraelNN.com) Israel is planning a major archaeological dig under the Western Wall (Kotel) plaza, opposite the Temple Mount, officials announced Thursday. The excavations will create an archaeological park directly underneath the area where worshippers currently stand while praying at the Kotel.

The current prayer area will remain open, supported by pillars, while a new area will be added underneath, at the level at which worshippers at the ancient Temple stood in the past.

The dig may be met with harsh reactions from Muslim and Arab leaders in Israel and the Palestinian Authority, many of whom have accused Israel of attempting to damage the Al-Aksa Mosque on the Temple Mount. Jerusalem-area Muslims recently rioted for several days after it was rumored that “Jewish settlers” had planned to pray on the Temple Mount.

The Government Press Office gave foreign journalists a tour of Kotel-area excavations this week. The tour, ostensibly an apolitical opportunity to view new historic findings, appeared to be aimed at countering Muslim criticism of Israeli excavations as well. See drawing of planned archeological park

A reference to Salah
Kotel Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitch met with the journalists and criticized religious leaders who use the Kotel excavations as an excuse for violence. When asked, the rabbi said that he was referring to Sheikh Raed Salah, among others. Sheikh Salah, leader of the extremist Islamic Movement, has been involved in many of the anti-Israel riots centered around the Temple Mount.

Rabbi Rabinovitch informed the reporters that Jewish law forbids digs directly underneath the Temple Mount, where the Al-Aksa mosque is located. Digs take place around the mount, not beneath it, he said.

The journalists also met with engineers and others involved in the archaeological digs, who assured them that despite accusations to the contrary, Israel's excavations do not cause harm to structures in the area. In fact, they explained, the excavations have improved structural stability in the Temple Mount area, as they led to discovery and strengthening of areas in which there was a danger of collapse.

 


 

 

This may well be the event Islam has been waiting for in order to stage another Intifada. The word has already gone out in the Islamic world that another Intifada is approved and planned. Islam knows the world community is ready to condemn Israel as the instigator of the coming Arab riots, and all they need is the right incident to blame all on the Jews. The Israeli natural growth expansion building in Jerusalem was being hyped as the event, but now these excavations outside the Western Wall will do even better. It matters not what the Jews do, Islam will find a reason to riot. The ultimate goal is an Islamic invasion of the Holy Land supported by a nuclear Iran. Israel will be forced away from using the nuclear button, and will have to fight a conventional war on Islamic conditions where Israel is outnumbered ten to one. I doubt the Jews would ever press the nuclear button anyway. The memory of the Holocaust prevents the Jews from ever inflicting mass destruction on anyone as was pressed on them by the Nazis. I doubt the Jewish heart is capable of wiping out in a single stroke even these hate filled Islamic invaders.

Events are moving quickly into seeing the fulfillment of the Ezekiel 38 & 39 which so clearly is an Islamic invasion of the Holy Land should it take place in our generation. The excavations in today's news story may well be the event that sets the stage for this Biblical prophecy to come into fruition. The Great and only God of the Bible is focusing the eyes of the world on the Temple Mount which will be the center of the coming Kingdom Age dispensation. Keep your eyes on the Temple Mount if you want to see what God is doing in the world today! This planet is about to be judged. The times of the gentiles, and gentile political rule is coming to an end! This present Church Age is about to experience divine judgment as God separates the true believers from the false. The apostate Church left behind after the rapture will be fodder for the antichrist as he takes control. Hatred against the Jews, and their coming again Messiah / King will reach new lows in human depravity. All religion left behind will hate the Jews even more then what we see in Islam today. It will only be through the strength of the LORD of hosts that the Jews will survive the coming Great Tribulation. Friend, the only victor in the end will be the promised Jewish Messiah. The world is about to see the redemption of the Jews through the LORD Jesus Christ. It has never been, nor ever will be religion that saves. Friend, you can come to this Christ of the Bible for salvation. You can have your sins forgiven. The critical issue is that you must come! You must humbly submit yourself to this Jewish Messiah / King of the Bible. There is no other Savior. It is only Christ who made the perfect atonement for sin at Calvary. Only He has the power to change the heart forever. Dear friend, won't you come to Him?


 

Psalms 101:1-3

101 I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O Lord, will I sing.

2 I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.

3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.

30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Iran arrests three suspects in suicide terror bombing


Iran announced on Wednesday that three suspects have been arrested in connection with a suicide bombing attack that killed 42 people, including five senior officers in the Revolutionary Guards in the Pishin region near the Pakistani border last Sunday. The al-Qaida linked Sunni separatist group Jundallah claimed responsibility for the attack and Iran has accused the US, UK and Pakistan of supporting them. Tensions between Iran and Pakistan have come under tremendous strain since the bombing, with one Iranian lawmaker charging that “The Pakistani Intelligence Agency (ISI) is the main supporter of terrorism in the region,” which is ironic since the Revolutionary Guards support Hizbullah in Lebanon, Hamas in the Gaza Strip, anti-coalition insurgents in Iraq, and are suspected of involvement in several terror attacks against Israeli, Jewish and Western targets all over the world. "Pakistan has a direct responsibility for this terrorist act and must provide the necessary facilities to track down and arrest the destructive elements," said one Guards general.


 

 

What goes around comes around is not a Biblical phrase, but certainly applies to this terrorist act. Oh how the Revolutionary Guards are crying out. It is the God of the Bible who frustrates sinners intent on evil. It is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob who has been frustrating Islam from the beginning. Sunni against Shiite works well keeping Islam in uncontrollable rage. This is not going to be the way forever. The God of the Bible has planed for Islam to get it's act together in these last days. Hate for the Jews is the bait God will use to unite Islam into one final act of evil. The desire to turn every Jewish man, woman, and child living in the Holy Land into hunted prey is the hook of which the Bible speaks as being used in the last days.

 

Ezekiel 38:4-12

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

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

6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.

7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.

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

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

10 Thus saith the Lord God; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:

11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,

12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.

 

KJV

Yes, Islam is about to unite in a final act of evil. It will invade the Holy Land with the intent to murder every Jewish man, woman, and child. A Western world can be expected to negotiate with Iran (Persia) as it does today, but will not overly involve itself in Israeli troubles. This coming Islamic invasion of Israel is a Biblical fact. It only needs the hook be set for the coming battle on the mountains of Israel.

Ezekiel 39 records the aftermath of the battle where Islamic influence over the Holy Land ends forever. The door for faithful Jews who will turn to Christ as their Messiah will open after Ezekiel 39 providing the way for the Islamic shrines on the Temple Mount to be bulldozed away, and the last Holy Jewish Temple be built on that holy site be accomplished. The stage is set! The Biblical goal of this miraculous Third Exodus is about to find fruition. Ezekiel 39 must take place before the rest of Ezekiel's prophecy can be fulfilled. From Ezekiel 40 - 48 is the description of Ezekiel's Millennial Temple. Islamic influence over the Holy Land must be ended before this glorious testimony to the soon return of the LORD Jesus Christ can be presented to mankind. 

The Apostle John saw this Temple (Rev chapter 11) in a vision which took place some 20 years after the Roman destruction of the Second Holy Jewish Temple. He saw Two Olive Trees standing on either side of the golden candlestick whom can only be identified with Zerubbabel and Joshua who built and established Holy Worship in the Second Temple.

 

Zechariah 4:3

3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.

 

KJV

 

Revelation 11:4

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

 

KJV

Friend, look toward Jerusalem. Look toward the Temple Mount. Watch the God of the Bible bring the end of the Book of Ezekiel into fruition. These yet unfulfilled prophecies predicted to take place in the latter years are now ready to take place. Islam has been prepared for the final act of evil. The Millennial Temple of which Ezekiel speaks is about to be erected on the Temple Mount. The LORD Jesus Christ is ready to descend to His earthly throne where He will rule the planet for 1,000 years. The only question is are you ready? You will either be overwhelmed by these coming Biblical events, or you will be saved. The choice is yours. The time to come to this Biblical Christ who provided the only perfect atonement for sin at Calvary is now! The time to submit to this Jewish Messiah so long rejected by His own people is now! The King of the Jews is coming! Only He has the power to forgive sin. Only He has the power to change the heart! Dear friend, won't you come to Him this very moment, and be saved?


Ezekiel 39

The End of Islam


39:1 Therefore, 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:
2 And 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:
3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.

4 Thou 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.

5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.


7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken.


9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years:
10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD.

 

11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamon-gog.


12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.


13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD.

14 And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.


15 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man's bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamon-gog.
16 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.


17 And, 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.

18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.

20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.


21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.

22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward.

23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.
24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.

25 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;

26 After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.

27 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations;
28 Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which cause them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there.
29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.

Labor Blocks Bill Defining Jerusalem ‘Capital of Jewish People’

by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

(IsraelNN.com) The Labor party, using its power as a government coalition partner, blocked an attempt by Jewish Home Knesset Member Zevulun Orlev to bring to first reading a bill aimed at strengthening the status of Jerusalem.

His proposal, which requires a change in the Basic Law, declares the city to be the “Capital of Israel and the Jewish People” and was designed to strengthen ties with the Diaspora. The bill would also make it more difficult to surrender parts of the city to foreign rule.

However, it was not clear that Labor MKs would back the proposal, and the party exercised its veto power. The coalition agreement states that any change in the Basic Law must have the agreement of all partners in the government. The Jewish Home’s three MKs are also coalition members. 

MK Orlev expressed his disappointment at Labor's “cynical” move. He charged that the party is a “traitor to its own values." The veto by Labor was all the more surprising to MK Orlev because the request to place the measure for a vote came from Prof. Shimon Sheetrit, a veteran and senior Labor party member.

Welfare Minister Yitzchak Herzog, a senior Labor minister, said the party “loves” Jerusalem but that the proposed law could be misinterpreted and damage the country.

 


 

How could such a clear statement ever be misinterpreted? The Labor Party in Israel is akin to the Democratic Party here in the United States. Their ranks are filled with liberals who think they know better then God, and the Bible. Any who read the Bible immediately realize Jerusalem is the most critical city on the planet. It is truly the center of the universe. It is a gift of God to the Jewish people. The liberal Labor Party is more concerned about the worldly Obama, and his Two-State Solution then about the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob! It is sad to see so much lip service given to God while the heart is as hard as flint. It is not a matter of ignorance. It is a matter of clear opposition to everything God has said in the Bible.

The roll of Jerusalem has always been associated with the Holy Jewish Temple. God calls it His House! It is the only place on the planet where acceptable sacrifice for sin can be made. It is the site of Calvary where the only perfect atonement for sin was offered, and accepted. It is the site of the resurrection of the LORD Jesus Christ. Never has God honored a city as He has done with Jerusalem. Rome tried as did Salt Lake City to usurp the honor due only to Jerusalem. Their corruption makes a mockery of Biblical holiness. The Jews also did their part to corrupt Biblical holiness, and paid the price. All religion is meaningless. All that maters is the holy reputation of the God of the Bible.

 

Ezekiel 39:25-29

25 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;

26 After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.

27 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations;

28 Then shall they know that I am the Lord their God, which cause them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there.

29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord God.

 

KJV

 

It is now fact that the God of the Bible has brought the Jews out of their captivity. He has miraculously gathered them back to their Promised Land. The Nation Israel is a modern day miracle that flies in the face of Islam, Mohammed with his blasphemous Koran, and Allah! The Bible says the redemption of the Jews is now almost here. Many nations are about to witness the transformation of the Jewish heart. It will be then that the Jews will have returned to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob! God is about to pour out His Spirit on the heart of Israel. Biblical Judaism will again be established in the land. Jerusalem will meet the expectations God has always had for this wonders city. Ezekiel's Millennial Holy Jewish Temple will be the diadem of Jerusalem when the LORD Jesus Christ returns to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple with a throne! 

 

Ezekiel 43:7

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

 

KJV

 

Matthew 27:37

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

 

KJV

 

There will be no liberal Jews among the redeemed. Free Will is honored by God, and as in every revival there will be those who remain rejecters. Their fate is eternal torment in the lake of fire, but for those who willingly accept the pouring out of God's Spirit through the redemption provided by the LORD Jesus Christ there will be eternal life. 

 

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

 

Friend, I pray you will not follow the detestable things of this world. I pray you can understand that this Christ of the Bible is the only Savior, and offers the sinner forgiveness. The decision is yours. You can come to Him for salvation, or you can continue to reject Him. The time is short. Just watch Jerusalem to see how quickly these last days are passing. Friend, won't you come to this Christ of the Bible, and live.
