July 19, 2000 - Oh, Jerusalem!

Matt 23:37-39
37) O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

38) Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.

39) For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
KJV

Clinton in a surprise interview granted to the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS, in which he said these peace talks are "the hardest thing I've ever seen" and that while he hopes for a deal, he does not know if one can be reached. "God, it's hard," Clinton said in the interview published on Monday. "It's like nothing I've ever dealt with ... I would be totally misleading if I said I had an inkling that a deal is at hand," he added. "That's just not true. But we're slogging."

Peace Talks?

Jer 6:13-14
13) For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.

14) They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.
KJV

Jerusalem is not the city of the politicians. It is the City of God! How sad that false peace proposals are offered when everyone knows there is no peace. The problem is in the heart not the politics of the Middle East. This unrepentant world has only begun to experience the burden of the City of God!

Zech 12:2-3
2) Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.

3) And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
KJV


False peace is the only fruit that can come from these present negotiators! This world must turn to the Jewish Messiah before it will see the peace of Jerusalem. Only Jesus Christ at His Second Coming will bring a true peace to Jerusalem through a true offer of forgiveness of sin to the lost sinner, but woe to those who refuse His free offer. They will not be allowed to ruin the peace that Christ brings to Jerusalem, lost sinners, and this sin lusting world!

What is going on at the Temple Mount?

The Moslem world is pressing the issue of who owns the Temple Mount. They have decided to build new and expand already existing mosques on the site. They are openly challenging  the Jewish people to keep clear or there will be no peace! The Jewish people must decide if they are going to trust in the hand of man or the hand of God! The politicians have backed off saying the Temple Mount is not worth it. They are satisfied to let the Moslems do whatever they want in hopes of a secular peace that in my opinion will never happen. One of Israel's  chief Rabies' is saying just let it be. In a sense it is saying we don't need or want what is Biblically to God the most holy spot on earth. 

God has miraculously restored the Jewish people to the land of their Biblical roots. He has preserved them while the vast Moslem world is intent on driving them into the Mediterranean Sea. It was not the hand of man which has placed and preserved Israel. Yet, the heart of the Jewish people continues to reject God. They would throw this most holy place unto the casino table as just another bargaining chip in their efforts to negotiate a manmade peace with their enemies. This generation has turned their back on the God who put life into their dry bones. Only a revival in the heart of the Jewish people can produce a love for the Temple Mount. It is most probable that only the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11 can restore the Jewish Temple that will again establish pure, honorable, holy, fellowship between God and His children. A change of heart is what must happen!

INTENSE NEW FOCUS ON FATE OF TEMPLE MOUNT 

Facing crunch time in the Middle East peace process, Israeli authorities continue to wrestle openly with the future of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Judaism's holiest site and currently home to rival Islamic mosques, with the Prime Minister and one of the country's two chief rabbis weighing in on the controversial issue in recent days.

Following numerous reports of the Islamic Waqf's careless destruction of Jewish antiquities on the Mount in order to expand facilities for Muslim prayer, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak finally held an emergency session on Wednesday with Attorney General Elyakim Rubinstein and security officials to assess the legal options available to end the damaging construction activity. With the fate of Jerusalem, especially the walled Old City, squarely on the agenda of tense, last-minute negotiations to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by September, dovish Cabinet member Yossi Beilin stirred the waters further by declaring it acceptable earlier this week for the Palestinians to flag their flag over the Mount if it meant the conflict could be declared over. Finally, one of Israel's two chief rabbis came out today in support of maintaining the status quo on the ultra-sensitive site, to be supervised by a joint Jewish-Christian-Muslim board.

Barak ordered an emergency meeting in his office today to discuss security arrangements on the Temple Mount in the wake of protests against unauthorized construction work being carried out there by the Muslim Waqf (religious trust). The work includes expansion over the past year of an underground mosque in "Solomon's Stables" and an adjoining new entrance
beyond the limits of an official permit, plus new illegal construction along the eastern side of the Mount, near what the Gospels call "Solomon's Porch."

This past Spring, concerned archaeological students sifted through fill material dumped by the Waqf in the nearby Kidron Valley and found numerous valuable artifacts dating back to the First and Second Temple eras. Not long afterwards, the Waqf reportedly began crushing the spoil material into small, indistinguishable rubble before dumping it into the Kidron. These
developments concerned an array of Israelis, including noted archaeologists and even pro-peace activists, who petitioned the High Court for an injunction against the work. The court asked Rubinstein for an official state response to the petition, but he advised last week against direct intervention, citing security concerns.

But with public protests growing, Barak was forced to address the matter and today heard recommendations from Rubinstein and the Shin Bet to close the Temple Mount gates to any further construction materials and heavy equipment such as tractors and trucks. They also pushed to halt the development and improvements under way between Solomon's Stables and the
Eastern or Mercy Gate until the Waqf agrees to coordinate its activities with the Antiquities Authority.

The pace of work has increased over the past two days along the eastern wall of the Temple Mount, and trucks bringing building materials in and dug-up earth out have been circulating, up and down the Kidron Valley. The Antiquities Authority has not been allowed to supervise, despite Cabinet Minister Haim Ramon's announcement last week of partial archaeological
supervision of the Temple Mount work.

Members of the non-partisan Committee for the Protection of Temple Mount Antiquities have called on UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, to get involved in the "intolerable" events on the Mount. They noted that elements from Israel's political Left and Right have joined forces in an unprecedented fashion in reaction to the Waqf's defiant actions. This comes despite the lack of a clear consensus in Israel behind the movement for erecting a Third Jewish Temple on the site, since Islamic and Arab leaders have threatened such a move would spark a large-scale "jihad" or holy war against the Jewish state.

Sephardi Chief Rabbi Eliahu Bakshi-Doron entered the fray today, confirming that he approves of the continuation of the status quo on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, so long as there remains a danger of religious conflict in the area. Bakshi-Doron told ISRAEL RADIO his remarks were intended to deflect inflammatory Muslim rhetoric, and to give Muslim extremists no
basis for their claims that Israel plans to rebuild the Temple and destroy the Al-Aksa Mosque. Nonetheless, Bakshi-Doron harshly criticized the Waqf, which effectively controls the Temple Mount, and said their activities are disrupting the status quo. He proposed a commission of members of the three major religions -- Judaism, Christianity, and Islam -- to oversee Temple
Mount activity.

Bakshi-Doron made a similar proposal in an earlier secret letter delivered by his personal emissary to an interfaith meeting convened by prominent Israeli doves and senior PLO figure Faisal Husseini and recently held in Milan, Italy to explore solutions to the explosive issue of future control over Jerusalem's holy sites, particularly the Temple Mount. The written
declaration was on official Chief Rabbinate stationery, and marked the first time a chief rabbi of Israel has declared that the Temple Mount should remain under Palestinian administration even after a permanent settlement is signed.

"For the good of the peace," Bakshi-Doron wrote, "we find that at the present point in time, a declaration should be made of our understandings regarding the holy places in Jerusalem... We must respect the status quo of those places, especially of the Temple Mount, which to others is known as the area of Al Aqsa Mosque. We must be concerned at any change in this
status quo, as that could cause harm to the place and lead to bloodshed... Instead of doing injury to the holy places, we must respect and accept the status quo of the holy places."

The last time the Israeli Chief Rabbinate addressed the status of the Temple Mount was after the Six-Day War of June 1967, when Israel reunified the divided city of Jerusalem. At that time, Israel's Defense Minister Moshe Dayan quickly returned the symbolic keys to the Temple Mount compound to Waqf authorities, making a personal decision to maintain the status quo
that later was accepted by the government and chief rabbis. Since then, several chief rabbis - such as Rabbis Avraham Shapira, Mordechai Eliahu and Shlomo Goren - have made only indirect references to the issue, and all from the hawkish side based on their desire to apply Israeli sovereignty to the Temple Mount.

Persistent press reports indicate Barak is prepared to offer the Palestinians a stake in Jerusalem, and would allow an international board of prominent religious figures from the three monotheistic faiths to assist in administering the Temple Mount and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, among other holy sites in the Old City.

Oh how sad that the Jewish people are trusting the hand of man over the hand of God!

Ps 79:1
1) O God, the heathen are come into thine inheritance; thy holy temple have they defiled; they have laid Jerusalem on heaps.
KJV

Isa 27:13
13) And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the LORD in the holy mount at Jerusalem.
KJV

Isa 2:2
2) And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
KJV

Ps 74:2
2) Remember thy congregation, which thou hast purchased of old; the rod of thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed; this mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt.
KJV

Isa 2:3
3) And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

BARAK ALLOWS MUSLIM WRECKING OF TEMPLE MOUNT

Several days after holding an emergency session to address reports of the Islamic Waqf's careless destruction of Jewish antiquities on the Temple Mount in order to expand facilities for Muslim prayer, it has clearly emerged that Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak has refused to order a halt to the illegal construction activity.

Barak chaired an urgent meeting in his office last Wednesday with Attorney General Elyakim Rubinstein, Internal Security Minister Shlomo Ben-Ami, Jerusalem Mayor Ehud Olmert, Antiquities Authority officials and Shin Bet security officers to assess the options available to end the Waqf's defiant building activities. With the fate of Jerusalem, especially the walled Old
City, squarely on the agenda of tense, last-minute negotiations to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by September, Barak's office released a short statement saying: "The Prime Minister has approved the Israel Police and GSS recommendations on what measures are to be taken or avoided regarding the Temple Mount, in line with the principles of maintaining the status-quo and not damaging archaeological artifacts, while recognizing the importance of the site for both Jews and Muslims."

But subsequent press reports indicate that Barak actually rejected the advice of both Rubinstein and the Antiquities Authority to halt or limit tiling of 200 square meters of the Mount recently begun by the Waqf. Barak also decided to forbid actions that would prevent the entry of heavy machinery, trucks and tractors to the Mount. Instead, he merely directed relevant authorities to maintain "reasonable supervision" of the traffic entering and leaving the compound through the Lions' Gate, while instructing that Israel Antiquities Authority archaeologists be allowed into the area to prevent the tiling work from developing "into more
extensive construction activity."

In addition, HA'ARETZ reported on Sunday that Barak was informed at the meeting that in recent weeks large diameter sewer pipes also have been brought into the Temple Mount compound. The Antiquities Authority expressed concern that the installation of these pipes without any supervision could cause additional severe damage.

Barak ordered an emergency meeting in his office today to discuss security arrangements on the Temple Mount in the wake of protests against unauthorized construction work being carried out there by the Muslim Waqf (religious trust). Access to the whole construction area has been forbidden to IAA inspectors and journalists. Even Israeli police are not allowed to take any photographs or document the destruction. Last week, an Israeli TV journalist said he was denied permission by Israeli police to fly a helicopter over the Mount to film aerial footage of the construction site.

At the meeting, Rubinstein voiced his opposition to the continued paving "because it is part of much broader projects. The supervision on the Mount is no longer effective. The claim of 'wishing to avoid bloodshed' as an excuse for not enforcing the law has already exhausted itself in the courts," said Rubinstein.

Olmert later called Barak's decision a "most severe error... The surfacing work is part of an overall plan to turn the Temple Mount into one huge mosque and to erase the immense Jewish heritage at the site and to convert it to a Moslem site," he told ISRAEL RADIO. "It is about time that we stop spreading fear among the public that stopping the works will end in disaster," he said.

A JERUSALEM POST editorial last Thursday entitled "Archeological destruction" noted that: "When arguing for the transfer of Abu Dis, the Arab neighborhood on Jerusalem's outskirts, to full Palestinian control, Barak somewhat glibly pointed out that Jews had not prayed to return to Abu Dis for the past two millennia. The same cannot be said of the Temple Mount, site of the First and Second Temple, and the Western Wall which is today the holiest site in the world to the Jewish people.

But Barak's policy and security adviser Danny Yatom later said, "The decision is excellent."

Concerns that the uncontrolled Waqf activity could spark violence were proved warranted on the same afternoon that Barak convened the special session, as five Palestinians were arrested after scuffling with a group of Jewish protesters near the Lion's Gate in the Old City last Wednesday.

In addition, the Jordanian Royal Commission on Jerusalem warned last Thursday that any action taken by Israel to damage or alter the status quo on the Temple Mount or prevent Waqf activities there will be perceived as an Israeli declaration of religious war. "This kind of war could inflame the entire region," said the Jordanian committee entrusted with Islamic holy places for Islam in Jerusalem.

Meanwhile, the Council of the Chief Rabbinate of Israel reportedly will be meeting on Monday to respond to an urgent appeal from rabbis and political figures to relax the accepted halachic ruling that prohibits Jews from entering the Temple Mount for reasons related to "impurity" in Jewish tradition. MK Benny Elon recently sent the chief rabbis a typical letter saying: "Today we can no longer ignore that fact that State of Israel and the police have given Muslims de facto sovereignty over the Temple Mount, where they brazenly violate the law, and declare that the Temple Mount has no religious significance to the Jewish people. We ask for a ruling from the chief rabbinate that would require observant Jews to visit the Temple Mount, or at least those areas in its environs which are permitted by all accounts, or in certain places following immersion in a ritual bath, if you
indeed rule so, or in any other way that would ensure a continued Jewish religious presence on the site."

The review comes a week after Sephardi Chief Rabbi Eliahu Bakshi-Doron confirmed that he approves of the continuation of the status quo on the Temple Mount, so long as there remains a danger of religious conflict in the area.

Another Update from Israel

July 6, 2000 

CHIEF RABBINATE CLARIFIES STAND ON TEMPLE MOUNT

The Chief Rabbinate of Israel held a special meeting on Monday and clarified its current position regarding destructive Muslim construction activity on the Temple Mount. Calling the site "the holiest place on the face of the Earth" for the Jewish people, the Chief Rabbinate emphatically stated that it never agreed to future Palestinian administration of the site. The announcement comes on the heels of Sephardi Chief Rabbi Bakshi Doron's statements advocating the maintenance of the status quo on the
Temple Mount in any final-status deal with the Palestinians. The Orthodox body also urged the government to act with full force to prevent any work at the holy site, and condemned the building activity being conducted by the Islamic Waqf on the Temple Mount. In a related note, HA'ARETZ reported that the late prime minister Yitzhak Rabin agreed to defer to the Chief
Rabbinate on final-status issues dealing with the status of Jewish holy sites in Jerusalem.

At the same meeting, the rabbinate reiterated its long-standing position prohibiting Jews from visiting the Temple Mount. "The prohibition to ascend the Temple Mount that all the rabbinic councils have reiterated continuously without any reservation only emphasizes the holiness of the area to the Jewish people over any other place," it said in the statement. The council ruling came in answer to recent appeals from rabbis and political figures to relax the halachic ruling regarding the entrance of Jews to the Temple Mount. Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi Yisrael Meir  Lau said that a halakhic decision is dictated by the law, not by the political situation at any time, no matter how grave it may be.


 

The Church that will be left behind - June 24, 2000

An evangelist who intended to preach just one sermon has left after 5 years of continuous revival meetings. Steve Hill is moving his ministry to Dallas after preaching hundreds of times at Brownsville Assembly of God, a Pensacola, Fla., church that has been the center of an international charismatic revival movement. About 3 million people have visited the church during that time, pastor John Kilpatrick said, according to the Pensacola News Journal. ...The revival fervor "didn't happen because of Steve and I know it sure did not happen because of me," Kilpatrick said. "God came down and kissed this place." Hill's final service June 18 turned raucous. "For almost 20 minutes people raced through the aisles, danced, laughed uncontrollably, jumped, jerked, and collapsed," the newspaper reported. ..."If somebody who is not Christian dropped in this morning, they would look at us and think we went bonkers," Kilpatrick said, according to the Journal. "Well, we have gone bonkers. People go bonkers over football and baseball. Why can't we go bonkers over Jesus?" He said he hoped that, even though crowds have diminished to about half what they were a few years ago, the revival will not stop, but go to "a different level."

This bonkers imitation of Christian revival is just another example of the Apostate form of Christianity that will be left behind after the rapture. It is no laughing matter that some 3 million gullible followers support this unbiblical form of Christian worship. These ranks will swell even more during the tribulation period as rebellion rages against truthful, Biblical worship of God. The Great Apostate bonkers Church is here right now ready to take control of all Christian worship once the real Christians are raptured.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

Preparing for the Last Jihad

For several years now, the center run by Marcus has monitored and translated from Arabic mainstream Palestinian newspapers, TV and radio broadcasts, and textbooks used in Palestinian schools for anti-Israel and\line anti-Semitic content. In a widely circulated report last year, Marcus found PA textbooks were filled with inciteful descriptions of Jews and Israelis as cunning, deceitful and treacherous, and routinely referred to Israel as the "Zionist enemy" and "oppressors." The new 19-page study reveals that the official PA guides - which Palestinian teachers are required to use contain much the same, instructing educators to saturate the minds of their students with incitement against Israel and extreme anti-Semitic views. For example, PA teachers are required to prepare their students for a "Jihad" (holy war) to liberate all of "Palestine" and to "cherish the Jihad fighters who quench the earth of Jerusalem with their blood." They are to instill in their students the idea that "Jews are dangerous enemies of Allah, Islam and the Arab nation." Students are to asked to emulate the efforts of Saladin, who liberated Jerusalem from the Crusaders. PA teachers also are to refer to Israel as the "Zionist occupier," and place it in the same category as "Facism-Nazism." Further, Palestinian teachers are to promote Zionism as an example of European imperialism and colonialism, whose aim is "the elimination of the original inhabitants of Palestine." And they are instructed to portray Jews as racial and religious zealots, and to explain this as the reason why Jews were persecuted over the centuries by Christians. Meanwhile, new history books introduced in PA schools define Israel as a "thieving conqueror," while the only map of "Palestine" in new PA textbooks eliminates the state of Israel, while labeling Haifa, Jaffa, Beersheva, and the entire Galilee and Negev as Palestinian cities. With the advent of the Oslo peace process in 1993, Israel pioneered a curriculum that promoted peace with its Arab neighbors, a program now in its seventh year that reaches all Israeli pupils. But the PA has maintained a rigid curriculum that continues to call for the liberation of all of\line Palestine, while describing Israel, Jews, and Zionism in the most demonic of terms. PA officials say in their defense that these books are supplied by Jordan and Egypt. But this hides the fact that Israel adopted similar Jordanian and Egyptian textbooks when administering schools for Palestinian Arabs, but deleted "offensive" sections.

This coming Islamic Jihad is inevitable. Nothing can stop the hate this generation of Moslems have toward Israel. When the Gog of the North give the call, they will all respond with a great hate for Israel. I believe Russia is preparing a sadistic hate in the Moslem Gog that once re-directected toward Israel will overwhelm the Moslem world. This Moslem Gog will pour through the spout between the Black and Caspian Seas in the North. The Moslem's of the East will rage from Iran and Iraq. The Moslem South will invade throughout North Africa from Lybia to Cush.

Only God will be able to stop this Last Jihad. He does just that in Ezekiel 39. Read, and weep for those who will let their hate dictate their actions in this coming invasion of Israel.

Ezek 39:1-5
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.

Resurrection! - The Charismatic Dream

Luke 16:27- 31

27) Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:

28) For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

29) Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

30) And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

31) And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

KJV

Now, this is plain, clear doctrine taught by The Lord Jesus Christ Himself, but you would think the Bible was silent on resurrection as a means of evangelism? Every high profile Charismatic faith healer working TV or the pulpit think they know better then God how to win souls. The rich man was in Hell because even there it is plain he will never submit to God, and His chosen methods of how to accomplish salvation. The rich man closed his eyes in death, and opened them in Hell because in the most foundational teachings of God he had a better way (his own way). He was, and to this day still holds that had father Abraham sent a resurrected Lazarus to his brothers, they would have been saved. The Omnipotent God says clearly this is not true, but no one can change the mind of the rich man nor will anyone change the minds of all the Charismatics who will believe this latest Charismatic resurrection.

Friday Fax 2000 issue 15, 14 April

A few weeks ago, we published the astonishing story of a Buddhist monk in Myanmar, who rose from the dead during his own funeral, three days after his death. The report was distributed on cassette. We have now obtained a translation of the report, of which this Friday Fax is a summary.

"We first heard of the events from a number of Burmese church leaders, who investigated the reports and have no doubt as to their authenticity. The monk, Athet Pyan Shintaw Paulu, has turned his life around, and suffers and risks much to tell his story. Nobody would undergo such hardship for nothing. He has already led hundreds of monks to Jesus, has been imprisoned, despised by his relatives, friends and colleagues, and been threatened with death if he does not tone down the reports. His current whereabouts are not certain: one Burmese source claims that he is in prison and may have been murdered, another that he is free and preaching." (AMO: see below)

"My name is Athet Pyan Shintaw Paulu I was born in 1958 in Bogale in the Irrawaddy Delta, Southern Myanmar (Burma). When I became 18 years of age, my Buddhist parents sent me as a novice to a monastery. At 19, I became a monk, entering the Mandalay Kyaikasan Kyaing monastery, where I was instructed by probably the most famous Buddhist teacher of the time, U Zadila Kyar Ni Kan Sayadaw, who was killed in a car crash in 1983. I was given a new name when I entered the monastery: U Nata Pannita Ashinthuriya. I tried to deny my own selfish thoughts and desires; even when mosquitoes landed on my arm, I would let them bite me instead of brushing them away. I became very ill, and the doctors diagnosed a combination of Malaria and Yellow Fever. After a month in hospital, they told me that they could do no more for me, and discharged me so that I could prepare myself for my death. Back in the monastery, I became ever weaker, and finally lost consciousness. I only discovered that I had died later: my body started to decay and smelled of death, my heart had ceased beating. My body was put through the Buddhist cleansing rites. But my spirit was wide awake I found myself in a powerful storm which blew everything away. Not a single tree, nothing was left standing. I was in an empty plain. After some time, I crossed a river, and saw a terrible lake of fire. I was confused, because Buddhism knows no such thing. I did not know that it was Hell until I met Yama, the King of Hell. His face was that of a lion, his feet like snakes, and he had many horns on his head. When I asked his name, he said 'I am the King of Hell, the Destroyer'. I then saw the saffron-coloured robes of Myanmar's monks in the fire, and upon looking closer, saw U Zadila Kyar Ni Kan Sayadaw's shaven head. 'Why is he in the lake of fire?' I asked. 'He was a very good teacher; his cassette "Are you a human or a dog?" helped thousands of people recognise that they are worth more than a dog.' 'Yes, he was a good teacher,' said Yama, 'but he did not believe in Jesus Christ. That's why he is in Hell.'

Buddha in Hell
I was then shown another man, with long hair bound in a ball on the left side of his head. He also wore a robe, and when I asked who he was, I was told 'Gautama, who you worship (Buddha).' I was distraught. Buddha in Hell, with all of his ethics and moral character?' 'It is not important how good he was. He did not believe in the eternal God, so he is in Hell,' answered the King of Hell. I also saw Aung San, the revolutionary leader. 'He is here because he persecuted and killed Christians, but mainly because he did not believe in Jesus Christ,' I was told. Another man was very tall, wearing armour and carrying a sword and shield. He had a wound on his forehead. He was larger than anyone else I could see, around 22 feet tall. The King of Hell said 'That is Goliath, who is in Hell because he mocked the eternal God and his servant David.' I had never heard of either Goliath or David. Another 'King of Hell' approached me and asked 'Are you also going into the lake of fire?'. 'No,' I said, 'I am just here to look.' 'You are right,' the creature said. 'You only came to look. I can't find your name. You'll have to go back to where you came from.' On the way back, I saw two paths, one wide, one narrow. The narrow path, which I followed for about an hour, was soon made of pure gold. I could see my own reflection perfectly! A man calling himself Peter told me 'Now go back to tell the people who worship Buddha and other gods that they will end up in Hell if they do not change. They should believe in Jesus. He then gave me a new name: Athet Pyan Shintaw Paulu (Paul, who returned to life). The next thing I heard was my mother crying. 'Son, why are you leaving us now?!' I realised that I was lying in a coffin. When I moved, my parents cried out 'He's alive!', but the others around them did not believe them. When they saw me, they were frozen with fear, and started shouting 'It's a ghost!'. I noticed that I was sitting in about 3 1/2 cups of an odorous liquid, which must have come from my body as I lay in the coffin. I was told that they were about to cremate me. When a monk dies, his name, age and the number of years of his service as a monk are inscribed in the coffin. I had already been registered as dead, but as you can see, I'm alive!"

Jane Fonda, and what's wrong with every Southern Baptist Church!



What a jump from Jane Fonda to every single Southern Baptist Church, but it's true as today's news. How can such a great transition as this be made? Well, none other then the prince of preachers could, and does make the transition.

Latest news on the conversion of Jane Fonda to born again Christianity:

Jane Fonda called abortion foes hypocrites during a pro-choice event this week. The former actress and political activist, who reportedly became a Christian recently (see link #1 below), was
the keynote speaker April 4 during the annual Utahns for Choice dinner in Salt Lake City, The Salt Lake Tribune said. ..."Have you ever asked yourself why [anti-abortion advocates]
have so much concern for the egg while it's growing inside a woman, but so little concern for the child once it's born?" Fonda asked the audience. For them, "it seems life begins at conception
and ends at birth," she said. ...Fonda congratulated Utah Gov. Mike Leavitt for vetoing a bill
that would have allowed only abstinence as a method of birth control to be taught in classrooms.
...Opposition to abortion rights and dissemination of birth-control information is "the same mind-set that opposes the notion of women working. It's a view that doesn't reflect reality," she said.
http://www.religiontoday.com/Archive/NewsSummary/view.cgi?file=20000107.brf.html

Now what does this have to do with every Southern Baptist Church? Well, you tell me how different this is from the things that Southern Baptists like Bill Clinton or Al Gore would say? The truth is that if Jane Fonda, now that she had a born again experience, would like to join a Southern Baptist Church (like Bill Clinton, and so many others are members of) she would be welcomed with most open arms. She would fit right in, and find a kindred spirit of philosophy in life.

Next, how do I jump to every Southern Baptist Church when many individual SBC Churches are opposed to this position on abortion? Here is where we go to the prince of preachers Charles Spurgeon. Here an excerpt from one of his sermons just recently put up on the web.

The following is a portion of C. H. Spurgeon's sermon entitled,
"Mongrel Religion," recently added to Phil Johnson's website,

A Sermon (No. 1622)
Delivered on Lord's-Day Morning, October 2nd, 1881, by
C. H. SPURGEON,
At the Metropolitan Tabernacle, Newington

"So these nations feared the Lord and served their graven images, both their children, and their children's children: as did their fathers, so do they unto this day."-2 Kings 17:41.

"SO DO THEY unto this day," said the writer of the Book of Kings, who has long since passed away unto his fathers. Were he alive now he might say concerning the spiritual descendants of these Samaritans, "So do they unto this day."

This base union of fearing God and serving other gods is by no means obsolete. Alas, it is too common everywhere, and to be met with where you might least expect it. From generation to generation there have been Mongrel Religionists, who have tried to please both God and the devil, and have been on both sides, or on either side, as their interest led them. Some of these wretched blenders are always hovering around every congregation, and my hope is that I may convince the consciences of some here present that they themselves are guilty, and
that of them it might be said, as of these Assyrian immigrants, "They feared the Lord, and served their own gods."

My sermon will by no means be an essay upon an extinct race, but it may be placed among "the present-day papers," for "so do they unto this day." He that hath ears to hear, let him hear, and to whomsoever the word shall apply let its rebuke be taken home, and through the teaching of the Holy Spirit may it produce decisive results.

I. I shall first call your attention to THE NATURE OF THIS Mongrel Religion.

It had its good and bad points, for it wore a double face. These people were not infidels. Far from it: "they feared the Lord." They did not deny the existence, or the power, or the rights of the great God of Israel, whose name is Jehovah. They had not the pride of Pharaoh who said, "Who is Jehovah that I should obey his voice?" They were not like those whom David calls "fools,"
who said in their hearts, "There is no God."

They had faith, though only enough to produce fear. They knew that there was a God; they feared his wrath, and they tried to appease it. So far they were hopeful persons, and under the influence of a feeling which has often led up to better things. It was better to dread God than to despise him; better slavishly to fear than stupidly to forget. We would not have men so foolish as to doubt the existence of God, nor so profane as to defy him. There was something commendable about men of whom it could be said that they feared Jehovah, even though that fear was a selfish and servile one, and was by no means so efficacious upon them as it ought to have been, for it did not cause them to put away their idols.

Another good point about these mixed religionists was that they were willing to be taught. As soon as they found that they were not acting rightly towards the God of the land, they sent a petition to their supreme ruler, the king of Assyria, setting forth their spiritual destitution. Church and State were fused in those days, and therefore they applied to their king that he would
help them in their religious distress, and he acted to the best of his light; for he sent them one or the priests of the old religion of the land. This man was a Bethelite, one who worshipped God under the symbol of an ox, which the Scripture calls a calf. He was a very slight improvement upon a heathen; but we must be glad even of small progress. They were quite willing to be taught
the manner of the God of the land, and so they installed this priest at Bethel, and gathered about him to know what they should do.

We have people around us unto this day who are glad to hear the gospel, and sit with pleasure under our ministry, and if the word be faith fully preached they commend the preacher and give a gratified attention to the things that proceed out of his mouth; and yet they are living in known sin. Albeit they do not practically turn from sin and renounce the service of Satan, yet are they willing to bow with the righteous, to sing their psalms and assent to their prayers, and to accept their confession of faith. They are a teachable sort of people, so far as mere hearing goes but there they stop.

Though these strangers feared Jehovah, and were willing to learn the way of his worship, yet they stuck to their old gods. "Ah," said the Babylonian, "I listen respectfully to what you have to say of this God, of the land; but Succoth-benoth for me; when I go home I shall offer sacrifice to him." The men of Cuthah said, "Verily this is good doctrine concerning the God of Israel; but the god of our fathers was Nergal, and to him will we cleave"; and the Sepharvites, though they wished to hear of the pure and holy Jehovah, and therefore learned from his law the command, "Thou shalt not kill," yet still they passed their children through the fire to Moloch, and did not cease from that most cruel of all religious rites. Thus you see that this mingle-mangle religion left the people practically where they were: whatever their fear might be, their customs and practices remained the same. Have you never met with persons of the same mongrel kind? If you have never done so,
your class of acquaintances must be superior to mine.

You can read the rest of the sermon at Phil Johnson's web site. There is a Paul Harvey "rest of the story" to the events making today's news. The Bible is very clear that the way born again Christians are to avoid becoming involved in a "Mongrel Religion" is to come out!

2 Cor 6:16-17

6And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.



17Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

KJV

I might add, and what agreement hath born again Christians with the likes of Bill Clinton, Pat Robertson, Benny Hinn, and the list goes on and on and on. This is not some precept of God hidden in the mysteries of time, but the clear teaching of God's Word.

What is happening today in Southern Baptist circles? The worst of the Mongrels are the ones threatening separation (just the opposite of what the Bible says should be done by obedient Christians). They want even more control over this ungodly mix (Mongrel Religion) called the Southern Baptist Denomination.

March 29, 2000

Four prominent Baptists have filed legal papers to form a breakaway denomination to rival the Southern Baptist Convention.

They incorporated and registered the name Baptist Convention of the Americas in 1998, acting quietly to prevent further discord in the nation's largest denomination, news reports said.
...Founding members consider themselves moderates compared to the more conservative SBC. They are Herbert H. Reynolds, ex-president of Baylor University; John F. Baugh, a Houston businessman who financed moderate organizations in other states, Baptist Press said; W. Winfred Moore, former pastor of First Baptist Church in Amarillo, Texas, and an unsuccessful candidate for the SBC presidency; and Paul Powell, a Tyler, Texas, pastor and former head of the SBC pension board.

...The new denomination exists only on paper, but the likelihood that a moderate group actually will break away from the SBC is increasing, Powell told the Tyler Morning Telegraph. "The gap is widening," he said.

...The Baptist Convention of the Americas could form churches in North, Central, and South America, say its articles of incorporation, filed in Texas. It also could do missionary work, hold public worship, provide education through schools, colleges, and universities, and minister to the sick and orphans.

What will the result of all this be? The milktoast pastors and Congregationalists of individual Southern Baptist Churches will continue to hide in their justification that they give no money to the SBC so therefore they have no responsibility in whatever happens. The denomination will probably compromise with these worst of the Mongrels. The SBC will become even more "of open arms" to the Jane Fonda's of this generation as it continues to grow as a symbol of what "born again" Christianity can mix together with.

Rev 3:14-17

14) And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;



15) I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.



16) So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.



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

Some Good Samaritans

Here is a news item that will not be in the mainstream news. I'm sure it's not just Christians in China who are guilty of breaking this law. As depraved as mankind is without Christ, there is still compassion, and decency that can be exhibited by many. I'm sure as these starving men, women, and children come across the mountains this Spring, they will find some goodwill somewhere!

Christians in China who harbor refugees from North Korea will be heavily fined, police say. China is expecting a huge influx of people crossing the border to find food after the snows melt in
March and April, Compass Direct News said. Tens of thousands of people come every year, fleeing the famine that has killed an estimated 2 million in North Korea in the past three years,
Compass said. ...Korean Christians living in China offer shelter and food to the refugees, but Chinese police send them back, Compass said. As many as 30,000 were deported to China last year. "We tried to shelter five families last year, but they were all sent back from our small town, and we heard they all died in a labor camp," one family said. The family was warned that they would be fined two years wages if they tried to help any others, Compass said.

This world of sin is a terrible place. I often see the unsaved show more honor then the saved. This has nothing to do with salvation. It has everything to do with character which has taken such a blow with Clinton/Gore. Yes, God does recognize Character even in hell! In the judgment of the nations at the destruction of the First Jewish Temple, it is amply clear that some nations were more honorable then others.

Ezek 32:26-27

26There is Meshech, Tubal, and all her multitude: her graves are round about him: all of them uncircumcised, slain by the sword, though they caused their terror in the land of the living.



27And they shall not lie with the mighty that are fallen of the uncircumcised, which are gone down to hell with their weapons of war: and they have laid their swords under their heads, but their iniquities shall be upon their bones, though they were the terror of the mighty in the land of the living.

Mighty men of character have lived upon this earth. Men of honor who put personal character above gain, or just beastly behavior (taking sexual advantage of women is as beastly as it gets). The sword being laid under a soldier's head was a symbol of an honorable death. Many unsaved soldiers have suffered such honorable deaths. An honor which was not recognized by God of the animalistic hoards of Meshech & Tubal in this first judgment of the nations after the fall of the First Temple. The world was turned upside down by the new power of Nebuchadnezzar and the Babylonian Kingdom. The head of Gold defeated all opposition to take it's place in this the next Gentile era that was to come. Some defeated nations were honorable though lost (uncircumcised), but some were cruel as the beasts of the field. All were cast into hell according to Ezekiel, but there clearly are worse places in hell for the worst of mankind.
