Ezek 38:13
13Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?

Israel Doing A Good Job Against Terrorism

Both the IDF Chief of Staff and Israel's Police Chief said today, in separate media interviews, that the relative quiet of the past few weeks is not due to a Palestinian decision to opt for peace, but rather to successful Israeli military operations to thwart terrorism. Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Moshe Yaalon said that for the first time in two years, there are now more explosives belts than suicide terrorists willing to detonate them.

Yaalon also noted with surprise that he was greeted very warmly by Arab residents of Hevron during his visit there last week. He explained that the IDF presence in the cities of Judea and Samaria "freed the [Arab] residents from the heavy yoke of the Palestinian Authority." It was learned today that the IDF has essentially revived the Civil Administration that governed Judea, Samaria and Gaza between 1967 and 1993. An office is open in Hevron, serving hundreds of people a day.

 

British Experts See Bright Economic Future For Israel

The British financial weekly The Economist sees a relatively rosy future for Israel within a few months. Expressing more optimism than Israeli Finance Ministry officials, the paper predicts that the Israeli economy will grow by 2.6% in the coming year. The Economist credits Bank of Israel Governor David Klein's interest rate hikes earlier this year with stabilizing the shekel and slowing down inflation. Statistics released yesterday indicate early signs of a recovery in the Israeli economy.

 

 

There is good news coming out of Israel. The rosy prospects for the economy is unusual as most of the Western world is not feeling very rosy right now. I suppose those who predict the economic future fall into the same category as those who predict the weather? Again, I would imagine those who try to predict when future prophecies in the Bible will take place are a notch lower then the other two categories?

I would expect Israel is going to have great economic success only because the Bible says when the Islamic invasion takes place it will be to take a spoil. God says it will be an evil thought that will come into the mind of the Islamic hordes. Their intent will be to cleanse the Holy Land of all Jews through murder, and to take their hard earned land and riches for themselves. An economy under stress just doesn't fit into what the times will be like for Israel just before the Last Jihad takes place.

A second thing the Bible says is that Israel will be at rest in unwalled cities. I think I can predict the future for the present wall being built around the West Bank, and that is no future at all? I know my speculations fall into the same category as that of the economists and weathermen, but I also know they are true! God has given us the how's of what He is about to do. What He didn't give us is the when!

 

 

How the Invasion is Motivated

Ezek 38:10-12
10Thus 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:

11And 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,

12To 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.

Al Aqsa Brigades executes two Palestinians for alleged collaboration


 

An 18-year-old Palestinian woman, Raja Ibrahim, was shot dead late Friday in the West Bank town of Tulkarm, by militants who accused her of planting the bomb which killed a local militant leader, Raed Karmi, on January 13th.

The militants were from the Al Aqsa Brigades, affiliated to Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat's Fatah movement.

Ibrahim's aunt, Ikhlas Khouli, 39, was shot and killed by the Al Aksa Martyrs Brigades in Tulkarm's main square on August 24 for allegedly collaborating with Israel. Her house was then set on fire.

Khouli's sister, Rajaa's aunt, was later kidnapped by the militant group and forced, after being tortured she said, to confess to having collaborated with Israel. Her two children, Rajaa and Allah, 20, were later also kidnapped by the group. ...

Palestinian sources told Israel Radio that a 22-year old resident of the village of Jab'ah, south of Jenin, was executed by the brigades on Saturday for allegedly collaborating with Israel.



Fatah executioner tells Post: 'Collaborators deserve to die'

 

The man who executed two Palestinian women last week after accusing them of collaborating with Israel said Saturday that the killings would continue despite pressure from the Palestinian Authority.

Abu al-Majd, 28, a senior member of Fatah's Aksa Martyrs' Brigades in Tulkarm, told The Jerusalem Post that he pulled the trigger in both cases.

One of the victims, Ikhlas Khouli, 36, a mother of seven, was killed last week, a day after being kidnapped from her home.

On Friday, her 19-year-old niece, Raja Abu Ammar, was also killed in Tulkarm after she allegedly confessed to assisting Israel in the assassination of a local Fatah leader.

 

 

Here is an example of a Palestinian State government. A 28 year old wild animal with a gun who would be the self elected judge, jury, and executioner of all he personally deems worthy of torture or death either woman or child. These are the heroes of the Islamic Arabs. These are the wonders of the Koran and its Allah. These are the Islamic warriors who fight the Jihad for god and country.

These are also marked men by the God of the Bible!

 

 

The Widows Friend

Ps 68:1-5
68:1Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.

2As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.

3But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.

4Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him.

5A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.

BRINGING THE DEAD SEA BACK TO LIFE

ICEJ NEWS - 09/02/2002
Jordanian and Israeli ministers announced a joint project at the World Summit on Sustainable Development, continuing in Johannesburg this week, entailing the two countries channeling water from the Red Sea at Eilat north to the Dead Sea.

The level of the Dead Sea has dropped 15 meters in recent years, and is now 410 meters below sea level. Lower flow rates in the Jordan River, the main source for the Dead Sea, have caused the drop in water level.

The channel will consist of a series of tunnels, canals and shafts and will be almost entirely in Jordan. Expected costs will be US$1 billion, however, an additional US$3-4 billion will be needed to construct desalination plants, which will siphon off some 850 million liters of water for use in Jordan, Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

Other than creating much needed drinking water for the area, the project will also help to reestablish the delicate equilibrium of the Dead Sea ecosystems as well as creating employment in Jordan.

Construction will start within 18 months and is expected to take five years to complete.
 

 

 

God has a much greater plan for the flow of water into the Dead Sea. His plan is to establish a new river that will flow from under the altar of the Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount after the reign of Christ begins.  Instead of the waters flowing from the Red Sea at Eilat into the Dead Sea, the flow from under the altar will flow possibly toward the Mediterranean Sea (Ezek 47:9 says rivers - more then one?), and certainly toward  the Dead Sea  quickly filling it to overflowing reversing the direction of the present planed flow. The purpose of this new flow will be for cleansing a polluted planet after the events of the Great Tribulation and Armageddon.

The flow will be small at its source, but will quickly increase until downstream it becomes a mighty river (or rivers?). At its source it will provide cleansing for the altar where blood sacrifice will again be established. The power in the blood will never be diluted, and as it flows from Jerusalem into the seas and then oceans of the world it will cleanse the ravaged planet.

A miracle, you bet! An example of the even greater miracle of the cleansing power available in Christ to any lost sinner coming to Him for restoration and cleansing from sin once and for all.

A river of life powered by the shed blood of Jesus Christ will be the eternal message from Jerusalem, and the coming Millennial Temple of the Jewish Kingdom age!

 

 

Rivers of Life

Ezek 47:1-10
47:1Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house stood toward the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar.
2Then brought he me out of the way of the gate northward, and led me about the way without unto the utter gate by the way that looketh eastward; and, behold, there ran out waters on the right side.
3And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ancles.
4Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins.

5Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over.
6And he said unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen this? Then he brought me, and caused me to return to the brink of the river.
7Now when I had returned, behold, at the bank of the river were very many trees on the one side and on the other.
8Then said he unto me, These waters issue out toward the east country, and go down into the desert, and go into the sea: which being brought forth into the sea, the waters shall be healed.
9And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and every thing shall live whither the river cometh.
10And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon it from En-gedi even unto En-eglaim; they shall be a place to spread forth nets; their fish shall be according to their kinds, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many.

Russia sends more technicians to Iran for reactor's final phase

 

SPECIAL TO WORLD TRIBUNE.COM

Tuesday, September 3, 2002

 

MOSCOW — Russia is sending additional technicians and engineers for what officials termed a critical phase in completing a nuclear reactor for Iran.

Officials said Russia has delivered heavy equipment for the shell of the 1,000 megawatt reactor and the turbine at the Persian Gulf port city of Bushehr. They said the equipment began undergoing assembly on Sunday and that Moscow plans to significantly increase the number of Russian engineers and technicians connected to the Bushehr project, valued at $800 million.

"All equipment, provided for by a contract with the Iranian side, was manufactured by Russian factories and successfully brought by sea from St. Petersburg to Iranian ports in the Persian Gulf," Viktor Kozlov, managing director of Atomstroiexport, said. "We have reached the stage of assembling our reactor and the turbine," Middle East Newsline reported.

Kozlov told Russia' Itar-Tass news agency that the current effort seeks to integrate the Russian VVER-1000 light-water reactor as well as a Russian turbine with equipment built and designed by Germany. Germany suspended the Bushehr project in 1982 during Iran's war with Iraq.

Germany had brought a range of equipment to Iran before the Bushehr project was suspended. They included the foundation for a steam turbine along with pumps and ducts, altogether 80,000 pieces of equipment.

Russia plans to complete the assembly of the reactor by the end of 2003, industry sources said. Bushehr is expected to begin operations in early 2005.

Officials said Russia also plans to increase its presence at Bushehr. They said about 600 technicians are already at the nuclear reactor site. Kozov said the number of Russian engineers and technicians at Bushehr will increase to 2,000 by the end of this year. He said housing for the additional personnel has already been built near Bushehr and a direct air link has been completed between the Iranian city and several points in Russia.

 

 

By 2003, another source for the Islamic Bomb will be in operation. Pakistan will have competition in delivering the Islamic Bomb to the wild animals ready to buy, and use it. Who knows, but the call of Allah Akbar (our god is great) may even override the financial restraints, and either of these Islamic Bomb producers will be willing to hand over free samples as long as no strings can be traced back to them? The time is short. The wild animals are ready. The technology is here. The first target will most likely be Tel Aviv. The rest of the world will be expected to look, and contemplate the cost of being on the wrong side of the Islamic animal's one sided view.

God will need to act soon to circumvent the Islamic Bomb. Ezekiel 38 & 39 reveals a 3 pronged Islamic Invasion of Israel. All of Islam, it's Islamic Bomb plans, it's Islamic Koran. it's Islamic god, and it's Islamic hordes will all find their destiny on the mountains and fields of Israel. The Great Tribulation must be near!

Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done!

 

 

 

The End of Southern Prong of Islamic Invasion

A Double Prophecy

Isa 18:1-19:1
18:1Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia:
2That sendeth ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying, Go, ye swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers have spoiled!
3All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see ye, when he lifteth up an ensign on the mountains; and when he bloweth a trumpet, hear ye.
4For so the LORD said unto me, I will take my rest, and I will consider in my dwelling place like a clear heat upon herbs, and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.
5For afore the harvest, when the bud is perfect, and the sour grape is ripening in the flower, he shall both cut off the sprigs with pruning hooks, and take away and cut down the branches.
6They shall be left together unto the fowls of the mountains, and to the beasts of the earth: and the fowls shall summer upon them, and all the beasts of the earth shall winter upon them.
7In that time shall the present be brought unto the LORD of hosts of a people scattered and peeled, and from a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden under foot, whose land the rivers have spoiled, to the place of the name of the LORD of hosts, the mount Zion.

Germany Rebuffs Call to Back U.S....

BRIT CHURCH LEADERS SPEAK AGAINST 'WICKED' WAR...

France against publishing secret documents on Iraq's weapons programs...

Powell heckled at EARTH SUMMIT...

 

 

The tide of the Western world seems set against an Iraq invasion by the US. This is the same Western world that is ready to follow the antichrist when he begins his vault to world leadership on a platform of false peace. The time seems ready for the reaping by the man of sin.

The US is the only friend in the world that Israel has. It will not take much for a slick talking politician to change that attitude. The rest of the world is on record saying Israel is not worth the inconvenience of a war with Islam.

The time seems right for the antichrist to begin his move to the world stage. The world is most certainly ready for him. The hate against Israel is there. The hate of a God who would force His future Plan for Israel on a resistant world is there.

The real issue is Islam's claim to the Holy Land that God has already given the Jews possession. The real issue is which is true - the Bible, or the Koran. The real issue is who is God - the God of the Bible, or the god called Allah!

21I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;

22Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.

23Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.

24And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

25And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

26But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.

Uncertain Ability to Deliver a Blow
Iraq Cobbles Together Weapons Systems With Mixed Results, Analysts Say

By Joby Warrick
Washington Post Staff Writer
Thursday, September 5, 2002; Page A01

In the waning hours of Operation Desert Fox in 1998, a British missile sheared off the top of a military hangar in southern Iraq and exposed a closely guarded secret. Plainly visible in the rubble was a new breed of Iraqi drone aircraft -- one that defense analysts now believe was specially modified to spread deadly chemicals and germs.

Up to a dozen of the unmanned airplanes were spotted inside the hangar, each fitted with spray nozzles and wing-mounted tanks that could carry up to 80 gallons of liquid anthrax. If flown at low altitudes under the right conditions, a single drone could unleash a toxic cloud engulfing several city blocks, a top British defense official concluded. He dubbed them "drones of death."

Today, Iraq's drones loom even larger as the Bush administration weighs a possible new strike against Saddam Hussein. The United States and Britain have charged that the Iraqi president is working to obtain chemical, biological and possibly nuclear weapons. A key unanswered question is whether Iraq has the means to deliver such weapons.

According to U.S. and allied intelligence officials and U.N. documents, Iraq has worked with apparently mixed success to diversify a patchwork collection of delivery vehicles that now includes not only Scud missiles, which it launched during the 1991 Persian Gulf War, but also a variety of novel machines for spraying pathogens and poisons from aircraft. Iraq deployed but never used chemical and biological weapons in the 1991 war. ...

"These aircraft are intended to fly below radar so the Israelis can't detect them -- the Iraqis themselves have said so," said a British biowarfare expert who investigated Iraq's experiments with aircraft-mounted biological weapons. "From that altitude, you can do a lot of damage over a very large area."

The delivery systems believed to be available for such an attack include at least some of the dozen drones targeted in the British raid four years ago. The L-29 aircraft, as the drones are known, are one of at least three types of pilotless planes Iraq has tested for use in biological and chemical attacks, according to U.S. intelligence officials and U.N. documents.

In addition, Iraq is known to have converted crop-dusting gear into a germ-spaying device mounted on helicopters, U.N. files show. It also has developed biowarfare "drop tanks" that can be mounted on Iraq's fastest fighter aircraft.

These little-noticed innovations -- many of them discovered by U.N. weapons inspectors in Iraq -- supplement an established Iraqi ballistic missile program that Pentagon officials say is slowly being rebuilt after being nearly destroyed in previous U.S.-led attacks.

Both the CIA and the Pentagon's Defense Intelligence Agency believe that Iraq's missile arsenal now includes two types of short-range missiles and a small number of medium-range Scuds that Iraq's military managed to hide from U.N. inspectors after the Gulf War. In addition, they say, Iraq probably retains dozens of missile warheads and possibly many more rockets and artillery shells that were filled with biological or chemical weapons years ago.

But large gaps exist in the West's knowledge of each of these programs.

 

 

The Iraqi's have over 600 tons of chemical/biological war grade stocks ready right now. The delivery systems are the unanswered question? The longer the US waits, the more time Saddam has to perfect his single one time blow intended to wipe out Israel. Saddam cares not about Israel's nuclear response. This egotistical maniac is unmoved by the death of all his people, and even all Palestinian Arabs living in the Holy Land as long as he gets the Jews.  His single vision of grandeur is that he will ever be known in Islamic memory as the prophet who destroyed Israel, and freed the Holy Land from the Jews. His health gives him little time to meet this goal. This attack would be extolled by Islam as the greatest Jihad of all times. The mother of all Jihads! Saddam would become the prophet who willingly sacrificed his entire nation for Allah! I'm sure he would not be resistant to the phrase "Allah is great, and so also his prophets Saddam and Mohamed!"

The time is getting short. The plans of Saddam are contrary to the plans of the God of the Bible. The longer the world waits to deal with this ego maniac, the closer we approach God's answer which is worldwide Armageddon! Only the Jewish Kingdom will survive the God of the Bible's plan!

 

Nebuchadnezzar's Dream of Grandeur

Dan 4:30-37
30The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty?
31While the word was in the king's mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee.
32And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.
33The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles' feathers, and his nails like birds' claws.
34And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:
35And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?
36At the same time my reason returned unto me; and for the glory of my kingdom, mine honour and brightness returned unto me; and my counsellers and my lords sought unto me; and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added unto me.
37Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase.

Num 10:10
10Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial before your God: I am the LORD your God.

The start of a new year

 

Jews around the world are to mark the beginning of the year 5763 on Rosh Hashana, which begins Friday evening and will continue until Sunday night.

The holiday traditionally begins with a festive meal, which includes apples dipped in honey, to symbolize a sweet year.

Worshipers are expected to fill synagogues throughout the country, while others go abroad or to their favorite local vacation sites.

Because tomorrow is Shabbat, the shofar will be blown only on Sunday. For the same reason, the traditional tashlich ceremony, in which worshipers visit a body of water and symbolically cast off the previous year's sins, will also take place Sunday.

Shops and offices are to remain closed until Monday morning. Public transportation will stop tonight and resume Sunday night.

Rosh Hashana is the beginning of the 10 Days of Penitence, culminating in Yom Kippur. The Shabbat between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur is known as Shabbat Shuva, the Sabbath of Repentance.

Monday, the day after Rosh Hashana, is the Fast of Gedaliah, commemorating the murder of the Jewish governor of Judea, appointed by the Babylonians.

 

The shofar is the quintessential symbol of Rosh Hashana.

During the blowing of the shofar on Rosh Hashana, notice there are three distinct sounds:

  1. Tekiah -- one long, straight blast    Hear the sound
  2. Shevarim -- three medium, wailing sounds    Hear the sound
  3. Teruah -- 9 quick blasts in short succession    Hear the sound

 

Let's examine each of these shofar sounds, and see how they relate to the different themes of Rosh Hashana.

THE TEKIAH SOUND

Rosh Hashana is the day of appreciating who God is. We then internalize that understanding so that it becomes a living, practical part of our everyday reality. God is all-powerful. God is the Creator. God is the Sustainer. God is the Supervisor. In short, God is King of the Universe.

But for many of us, the idea of a "king" conjures up images of a greedy and power-hungry despot who wants to subjugate the masses for his selfish aims.

In Jewish tradition, a king is first and foremost a servant of the people. His only concern is that the people live in happiness and harmony. His decrees and laws are only for the good of the people, not for himself. (see Maimonides, Laws of Kings 2:6)

The object of Rosh Hashana is to crown God as our King. Tekiah -- the long, straight shofar blast -- is the sound of the King's coronation. In the Garden of Eden, Adam's first act was to proclaim God as King. And now, the shofar proclaims to ourselves and to the world: God is our King. We set our values straight and return to the reality of God as the One Who runs the world... guiding history, moving mountains, and caring for each and every human being individually and personally.

Maimonides adds one important qualification: It isn't enough that God is MY King alone. If ALL humanity doesn't recognize God as King, then there is something lacking in my own relationship with God. Part of my love for the Almighty is to help guide all people to an appreciation of Him. Of course this is largely an expression of my deep caring for others. But it also affects my own sense of God's all-encompassing Kingship.

THE SHEVARIM SOUND

When we think about the year gone by, we know deep down that we've failed to live up to our full potential. In the coming year, we yearn not to waste that opportunity ever again. The Kabbalists say that Shevarim -- three medium, wailing blasts -- is the sobbing cry of a Jewish heart -- yearning to connect, to grow, to achieve.

Every person has the ability to change and be great. This can be accomplished much faster than you ever dreamed of. The key is to pray from the bottom of your heart and ask God for the ability to become great. Don't let yourself be constrained by the past. You know you have enormous potential.

At the moment the shofar is blown, we cry out to God from the depths of our soul. This is the moment -- when our souls stand before the Almighty without any barriers -- that we can truly let go.

THE TERUAH SOUND

On Rosh Hashana, we need to wake up and be honest and objective about our lives: Who we are, where we've been, and which direction we're headed. The Teruah sound -- 9 quick blasts in short succession -- resembles an alarm clock, arousing us from our spiritual slumber. The shofar brings clarity, alertness, and focus.

The Talmud says: "When there's judgement from below, there's no need for judgement from above." What this means is that if we take the time to construct a sincere, realistic model of how we've fallen short in the past, and what we expect to change in the future, then God doesn't need to "wake us up" to what we already know.

God wants us to make an honest effort to maximize the gifts He gave us. You aren't expected to be anything you're not. But you can't hoodwink God, either.

The reason we lose touch and make mistakes is because we don't take the time everyday to reconnect with our deepest desires and essence. The solution is to spend time alone everyday, asking: Am I on track? Am I focused? Am I pursuing goals which will make the greatest overall difference in my life and in the world?

Make it a habit to keep in touch with yourself, and when Rosh Hashana comes around, the alarm clock of the shofar won't be nearly as jarring!

 

Have a happy Rosh Hashana - 5763!

 

The Last Trump for the Church Age

The Trumpet Call for the Jewish Kingdom

1 Cor 15:51-16:1
51Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
57But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
58Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Libya may be first Arab state with nukes, Sharon warns

Special to World Tribune.com

MIDDLE EAST NEWSLINE

Friday, September 6, 2002

JERUSALEM — Israel has warned the Libya could become the first Arab nation with nuclear weapons.

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said Libya is working with such countries as Iraq, North Korea and Saudi Arabia to develop missiles and weapons of mass destruction. Sharon indicated that Libya has obtained expertise to launch a project to develop nuclear weapons.

"Libya is becoming perhaps a more dangerous country than we thought," Sharon said on national television on late Wednesday. "Libya may be the first [Arab] country to have the worst kind of weapons of mass destruction."


Iran successfully test fires surface-to-surface missile

ALI AKBAR DAREINI, Associated Press Writer

TEHRAN, Iran - Iran has successfully test fired a ballistic missile potentially capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.

State-run Tehran television reported on Friday that the Fateh 110 A missile had been successfully test fired, but did not say where or when the test happened, nor the missile's range.

Tehran TV described the missile as "one the most accurate surface-to-surface missiles manufactured in the world."


100 jets join attack on Iraq
By Michael Smith, Defence Correspondent
(Filed: 06/09/2002)
 

About 100 American and British aircraft took part in an attack on Iraq's major western air defence installation yesterday in the biggest single operation over the country for four years.

The raid appeared to be a prelude to the type of special forces operations that would have to begin weeks before a possible American-led war. It was launched two days before a war summit between President George W Bush and Tony Blair in America.


US sends heavy armour to Gulf as campaign grows

By Kim Sengupta

05 September 2002

Signs that preparations for a new Gulf War are well under way were highlighted yesterday when America stepped up the movement of heavy armour to the Gulf.

The US Navy has booked a giant commercial transporter to take tanks, artillery, ammunition and back-up vehicles to the region. It is the third shipment of arms and military hardware in a month using commercial shipping. Military analysts said it showed the US Navy had probably exhausted the capacity of its own fleet and resorted to the open market.

 

 

Could it be the invasion of Iraq is going to be a much bigger operation then anyone has been led to believe? Might it be a once and for all war to end Middle East strife, and the strangle hold the Arab dictators have had on oil so vital to the West? Who could stop the US if we decided that colonial type governments like Afghanistan (presented as anything but colonial) friendly to the West were forced on all the Arabs? The average Arab would be better off rid of the potentates who ruled over them up to now.

It can only be speculation for now. I try to look past the war to the false peace that I know must follow. I just can't imagine an Israel at rest dwelling in un-walled cities unless the entire situation in the Middle East were turned upside-down? Things can change very quickly in this post 9/11 world.

The hearts of the Arabs will never change toward the Jews. An Israel at rest would be too big a plum to pass over even for colonialised Arabs. The events of 5763 will certainly be defining as God prepares the world for the antichrist king of the West (the old Roman world), and the Jewish Kingdom!

 

 

 

Islamic Invasion of Israel

2Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
3And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
4And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:
5Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
6Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.
7Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
8After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.

Antichrist Kingdom and Jewish Kingdom

Dan 2:41-44

42And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.

43And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

44And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

Fast Of Gedalya Today

(Updated Monday 10:15 AM) Jews around the world today (the third day of the Hebrew month of Tishrei) are partaking in a day of fasting and reflection known as the Fast of Gedalya or “Tzom Gedalya.” Gedalya (ben Achikam) was appointed by the Babylonian King Nebuchadnetzer to serve as a Jewish governor in Israel following the destruction of the First Holy Temple in Jerusalem. However, after assuming his post Gedalya was murdered by a fellow Jew. Following his death the Jews living in Israel fled to Egypt fearing reprisals from the Babylonians since it was a Jew who killed Nebuchadnetzer’s appointed leader. Since Gedalya’s death led to an end (temporary) in the Jewish presence in Israel, a fast was established.

Vice President Cheney: Saddam Hussein 'Actively and Aggressively' Seeks Nuclear Weapons
 

W A S H I N G T O N, Sept. 8Saddam Hussein is aggressively seeking nuclear and biological weapons and the "the United States may well become the target" of an attack, Vice President Dick Cheney said Sunday as the Bush administration pressed its case for toppling the Iraqi leader.

Cheney and top administration officials took to the Sunday talk shows as part of President Bush's effort to convince the public, Congress and other countries that action against Saddam is urgently needed. The officials cited the Sept. 11 attacks in making the case that the world cannot wait to find out whether the Iraqi president has weapons of mass destruction.

2500 years ago Israel was having trouble with Babylon. Today, the land and city of Babylon are under the rule of the Arabs, but still a problem to Israel. The face of the Middle East is about to change forever with the inevitable invasion of old Babylon. In Biblical days it was Persia that overthrew the yoke of Babylon absorbing it, and freeing that era of it's tyranny. Today, the US is in a sense stepping back in time to fulfill a similar roll. It was Persia who allowed the Jews to return, and build the Second Temple. Might the event of today be preparing the way to the building of the Third Jewish Temple?

 

 

Sacrifice Re-established under Persian Rule

Ezra 3:1-6
3:1And when the seventh month was come, and the children of Israel were in the cities, the people gathered themselves together as one man to Jerusalem.

2Then stood up Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and his brethren the priests, and Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and his brethren, and builded the altar of the God of Israel, to offer burnt offerings thereon, as it is written in the law of Moses the man of God.

3And they set the altar upon his bases; for fear was upon them because of the people of those countries: and they offered burnt offerings thereon unto the LORD, even burnt offerings morning and evening.

4They kept also the feast of tabernacles, as it is written, and offered the daily burnt offerings by number, according to the custom, as the duty of every day required;

5And afterward offered the continual burnt offering, both of the new moons, and of all the set feasts of the LORD that were consecrated, and of every one that willingly offered a freewill offering unto the LORD.

6From the first day of the seventh month began they to offer burnt offerings unto the LORD. But the foundation of the temple of the LORD was not yet laid.

Time: Israeli intelligence says Hamas in state of ruin

By Ha'aretz Service

Israeli intelligence officials assert that 98 percent of the known members of the Hamas military wing have been arrested or killed over the past five months, leaving the terrorist organization in a state of disarray, Time magazine reported Monday.

The report in the magazine, which quotes anonymous intelligence officials, also states that this situation has led to a debate within Hamas, with some activists calling for a temporary halt to terror attacks lest the group be "wiped out as a political as well as a military force."

Opposition to this view comes from Hamas activists mainly outside the West Bank and Gaza Strip, who maintain, that "It's more important than ever to show Israel that it can't stop Hamas," the magazine reports.

The magazine quotes the officials as saying that the Israeli military crackdown in the West Bank, which began in April after the suicide bombing on the first night of Pesach that killed 29 people at the Park Hotel in Netanya, has caused severe disruption to the group, making it "no longer possible for cells to organize across different areas."

 

 

 

Fifty four years ago the world didn't know what to do with the displaced Jews of Europe after World War Two. I believe the behind the scene thinking by many was let's just let the Arabs finish what Hitler began. The miracle victory of Israel in 1948 against all odds caused frustration on the part of those who hold ill will toward the Jews. The frustration increased in 1967 when Israel emerged as a powerhouse unto themselves.  Now again, the covert war of attrition aimed not at the impossible task of the cry baby destroying the giant, but rather the tormenting of Jews forever has also failed. The voices heard in the background of 1948 remain as frustrated today as the miracles continue. It is clear God is behind the Jews of Israel. His plan for the coming Jewish Kingdom will never be frustrated!

 

 

The Frustration of the World

Psalms 2

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

4He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him, even length of days for ever and ever.
5His glory is great in thy salvation: honour and majesty hast thou laid upon him.
6For thou hast made him most blessed for ever: thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance.
7For the king trusteth in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.
8Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee.
9Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them.
10Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.
11For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.

The Palestinian Visions of Grandeur

(Why the War will Continue)

PALESTINIAN BESTSELLER PREDICTS END OF AMERICA

On the eve of the first anniversary of the American attacks of last September 11, a booklet that anticipates the destruction of the United States by 2004 has become a best seller in the Palestinian areas.

The booklet compares today's geo-political reality with that of ancient Egypt in the time of Moses. Among other methods, it does this by turning to the Koran to see the physical similarities between the Hebrew deliverer Moses and Osama bin Laden.

Both are described as being tall, dark, and having an aquiline nose. Like Moses, bin Laden is said to use a stick to lean on while walking, and to belong to the same tribe from the Arabian Peninsula. [Islam teaches that Moses and other prominent biblical figures were actually Muslims - Ed.]

The booklet also looks at the policies of US President George Bush and that of the pharaohs.

The author, Abu Arafeh, explains that he found many "striking similarities between the US administration and the corrupt Pharaoh who oppressed the believers and enslaved them."


The book quotes Allah in the Koran, when he said to the believers: "Truly Pharaoh exalted himself in the land and divided its people into sections, depressing a group among them; their sons he slew, but he kept alive their females: For he was indeed an evil-doer or corrupter. And we wished to be gracious to those who were weakened in the land, to make them leaders and inheritors, to establish a firm place for them in the land and to show Pharaoh and his hosts what they were dreading from them."

The booklet is entitled "The Koran Anticipates the Destruction of the US and the Sinking of the American Army" and is selling for two shekels.

According to what the author is claiming as a thoroughly researched work, one of the definitions of Pharaoh is "big house." Indeed, according to the book, Pharaoh was known to have lived in a house built with white stones.

The author also claims that he was also astonished to discover that the picture of the pyramids is printed on US dollar bills. Moreover, the symbol of Egypt's pharaoh was the eagle, "which is the same symbol of the pharaoh of America and the White House. And anyone who visited Washington knows that the White House keeps a pharaoh obelisk in one of its gardens."

Another Koranic verse cited reads: "And we leveled to the ground the great work and fine buildings which Pharaoh and his people erected."

In related news, Palestinian journalists have reported that they are not allowed to cover any celebrations amongst the Palestinian population to mark the attacks in New York and Washington DC last year. They have been threatened with jail.

The Palestinian Authority was embarrassed last year when scenes of joyful civilians were shown around the world in the hours after the attacks.


Palestinian security forces confiscated many of the tapes of the celebrations.
 

 

 

What really happened on 9/11 was that Islam declared war on the God of the Bible. They believe that within the babblings of the Koran are hidden the destruction of the US, and it's Christian God by Allah! Once the US is destroyed it would be just a little thing they think to destroy Israel. They actually believe that Allah will subjugate the whole world, and turn it into a sexually perverted paradise for the warriors of Allah. Islam waits on the wild animals it has unleashed to do the dirty work while they innocently stand by expecting to reap the harvest (the sheiks of Saudi Arabia lead).

Abu Arafeh got one thing right. Osama bin Laden and "the big house" if he's not dead already. The future fate of the US is of little consequence in the Biblical record. It's glory will all be of the past once the Church age ends. It is a glorious past, but the future belongs to Israel. It is the future glory of Israel that finishes the greatest story ever told!

Allah and the Koran will find the same fate as Horus, Baal, Osiris, Dagon, Moloch, and all the other little gods who had a moment in the sun, but never saw the light of day again! The worshipers of Allah will find the same fate as those who worshipped those extinct gods of so long ago! They all rejected the God of the Bible, and ended up on the dung heap of human history.

 

 

Only One God, and He is not Allah

Isa 45:20-25
20Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save.

21Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.

22Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.

23I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.

24Surely, shall one say, in the LORD have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.

25In the LORD shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.

Going all the Way Back to Genesis

Shas To Work Towards Opening Joseph's Tomb to Jews

(IsraelNN.com) Shas Party leader Minister Eli Yishai today stated he and his colleagues would now work towards reopening Joseph's Tomb in Shechem to Jewish visitors and worshipers. The senior cabinet minister made his remarks while visiting Rachel's Tomb in Bethlehem, accompanied by other elected party officials.

Shas announced this week that its effort were instrumental towards the decision to include Rachel's Tomb in the security fence now under construction, instead of the holy site remaining on the PA side of the fence as was originally planned.

 

 

This is a small item among all the impending war disclosers, but it is significant in relation to Jewish sovereignty over the Holy Land. Twice the Palestinians had packed the Tomb of Joseph with explosives, and were but moments away from doing what the Taliban did to the Buddha's in Afghanistan. The Tomb of Joseph would truly be history were it not for the Israeli Defense Forces intervening. The Palestinians have lost all credibility as a government that would protect religious shrines under their control which belonging to the world. The secular Jewish government has no real interest beyond political advantage in either the mother - son Tombs of Rachel and Joseph. Yet, God through circumstances continues to grant the Jews more and more sovereignty even when they would rather not. With sovereignty comes responsibility, and all the headaches that are included. God continues to be the real sovereign of the Holy Land, and the Jews unwillingly for now the appointed overseers. The religions of the world must step aside as the God of the Bible expresses His Sovereignty over the Holy Land!

Soon the issue of sovereignty will be applied to the Temple Mount. The Jews can never return to Biblical Judaism without the Temple. Blood sacrifice is the only way the Jews of Israel will ever be able to turn in a meaningful way to the Christ of the New Testament. The Temple Mount must come under exclusive Jewish sovereignty before the Biblical Jewish Kingdom can be established.

 

 

Tombs of Joseph and Rachel

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

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

32And the bones of Joseph, which the children of Israel brought up out of Egypt, buried they in Shechem, in a parcel of ground which Jacob bought of the sons of Hamor the father of Shechem for an hundred pieces of silver: and it became the inheritance of the children of Joseph.

The Palestinian Game Continues

P.A. Television Puts The Lie To No-Terrorism Call

Barely a day after Yasser Arafat called for ending terrorism against Israeli civilians, the official PA television station broadcast ten minutes of films calling expressly for violence against Israel. Michael Widlanski of The Media Line reports that the clips featured scenes of youths throwing rocks and firebombs and shooting at Israeli forces. The scenes were shown together with martial music and repeated narrative calls such as, "Oh, masses of the occupied land, go forward with the revolution against the enemy." Arafat himself was shown carrying weapons and even in the midst attacking Israeli targets, in footage taken more than two decades ago.

"Arafat has been deliberately offering a mixture of messages," Widlanski notes, "one aimed largely at Western audiences, and one aimed mostly at his own Palestinian constituency."

 

 

Sovereignty means submission. It seems clear to me Arafat will never submit. The secular Jews of today are not demanding total sovereignty over the conquered Arabs, but rather seeking a limited submission for the benefit of both peoples. Arafat has frustrated all attempts at compromise.

Soon, God is going to step into the affairs of His Land more forcefully then at present. On that day, He will demand total sovereignty. There will be no compromise! It will be God's way, and only God's way. The coming Jewish Kingdom is based on the rule of righteousness. It will be God's righteousness as symbolized in the iron rod rule! There will be no compromise! A truly puritanical Kingdom will rule the world for 1000 years.

Born again Christians have long understood the sovereignty of God as it works in salvation. We have long stood on the truth that coming to Christ is coming to the sovereign God of the Bible. It is not religion that saves, but only the Christ of the Bible! We know, and always have known there is no other way! It is Christ alone with no compromise. It is Christ alone, and not the virgin Mary, or speaking in tongues, or any other manmade substituted add-ons. It is coming to the sovereign God of the Bible! In the next dispensation it will remain Christ/Messiah alone, but this time He will establish a Biblical Jewish Kingdom on earth for 1000 years. There will be no compromise allowed. Mankind must be taught that the only freedom worth having can only come under a system of total sovereignty ruled over by God Himself. Eternal life means eternal submission to the Holy God of the Bible. Total submission is mandatory so sin will never rear it's ugly head for all eternity future. God for His part promises total sanctification granted to all who come His way (through His Messiah). We will actually be able to live without sin! What a wonderful day is yet to come!

Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be Done!

 

 

Ps 22:28-31
28For the kingdom is the LORD's: and he is the governor among the nations.

29All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.

30A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.

31They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.

Lev 16:34
34And this shall be an everlasting statute unto you, to make an atonement for the children of Israel for all their sins once a year. And he did as the LORD commanded Moses.
KJV

 

Yom Kippur is the most holy day in Judaism. In days of old when Biblical Judaism was practiced, the High Priest would enter the Holy of Holies on this one day alone to make symbolic atonement for the sins of the entire nation with the blood of sacrifice. That blood of sacrifice was always looking forward to the always intended representation of the blood Jesus Christ would be sacrificing at Calvary, for all sin, for all time, for all who would ever come to the sovereign God of the Bible! Biblical Judaism always pointed to the coming Messiah/Savior.

Heb 10:4
4For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
KJV
 

Soon, a Third Jewish Temple will be built, and Biblical Judaism will again be put into practice. Yom Kippur will again find the High Priest bringing the blood of sacrifice into the Holy of Holies for the atonement of sins. In this future era the blood of sacrifice will look back to what the Lord Jesus Christ did at Calvary.

Today, the Chief Prince of the old USSR is stirring. It is the Moslems North of the Caucasus Mountains that will lead the last Jihad of Ezekiel 38 & 39. Islam is opposed to the single atonement made by the Jewish Messiah at His first coming. Jesus is coming again not as the suffering savior as at His first coming, but this time He will come as the conquering King. His name will be the Lord of hosts on that day!

 

 

The Atonement

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

Prayers At Joseph's Tomb - Two Years After

Close to 100 Jews took advantage of special military permission to pray at Joseph's Tomb in Shechem last night - the first time that Jews have been allowed to do so in two years. Buses and private cars brought the worshipers, including family members of terrorism victims from Itamar and other nearby locations. They recited the special Ten Days of Repentance prayers - s'lichot - and afterwards heard a Torah lecture from Rabbi Yitzchak Ginzburg, head of Yeshivat Od Yosef Chai that stood there for many years until 2000. Yigal Lalom, one of the worshipers, told Arutz-7 that the Arabs had destroyed everything in the compound, including all vestiges of the yeshiva.

Organizers said that not only were the worshipers very moved and excited by the event, but that the soldiers and officers were also noticeably happy, and that the latter expressed hope that the Jews would return there again. Yesha Council director and Shomron Regional Council head Bentzy Lieberman, who also took part in the prayers, said, "This was a very moving event, as exactly two years have passed since the site was close to Jewish worship. This represents the closing of a circle of that disgrace, and the beginning of victory over the Palestinians."

Following the prayers, the convoy of cars and buses stopped at a nearby cave where Rabbi Hillel Lieberman's body was found two years ago. Rabbi Lieberman, one of the first victims of the Oslo War, was brutally murdered by Arabs on his way to rescue Torah scrolls from the Arab mob that took over Joseph's Tomb. The worshipers this morning said a chapter of Psalms and a prayer at the cave.

 

 

It is sovereignty pure and simple. The Jews have the sovereignty, but are unwilling to take the responsibility. They will only visit this holy site with overwhelming military forces, but then they leave. The secular Jewish government turns its back on the responsibility God has put in their hands. The control reverts back to the Palestinians who murder, deface, and destroy as roving bands of wild animals that all authorities allow to ravage as they will.

There is a cost to mankind as God begins to assert His authority over the Holy Land. Men openly rebel, or just drag their feet. The Jews dragged their feet for sixteen years before completing the Second Jewish Temple in the days of Ezra and Nehemiah. It took the combined urging of the Two prophets Haggai and Zechariah before the Jews fully followed through with their responsibility.

Soon, God will send another two prophets as revealed in Revelation chapter 11. The chapter begins with the measuring of a Jewish Temple built on the Temple Mount. The Second Jewish Temple expanded and refurbished  by Herod the Great had only recently been destroyed when John was given this vision of chapter 11. The Temple he saw and measured is yet to be built by Jews. It may well be this generation of Jews that God will call upon to fulfill the responsibility He has so clearly put in their hands.

 


The Next Jewish Temple

Rev 11:1-7
11:1And 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.

2But 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.

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

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

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

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

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

U.S. Targets Iraqi Communications

By SCOTT LINDLAW

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. pilots patrolling the skies over Iraq are taking a new approach to defending themselves, and the switch may be chipping away at Iraq's ability to resist a full-scale U.S.-led invasion.

Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld disclosed Monday that more than a month ago he personally ordered that pilots attack command and communications links in Iraqi's air defense network rather than the guns and radars that are frequently used to target or shoot at U.S. and British pilots.

``The idea that our planes go out and get shot at with impunity bothers me. And I don't like it,'' Rumsfeld told reporters

The goal of the new approach — more than a decade after American and British pilots began enforcing ``no-fly'' zones over northern and southern Iraq — is to reduce dangers to the fliers while increasing the damage they can inflict on an Iraqi air defense system that has grown more sophisticated.

U.S. officials rarely discuss specifics of tactics used in patrolling the ``no-fly'' zones, which Iraq claims are illegitimate violations of its sovereignty. These patrols rarely get much public attention in the United States, but they provide important experience for allied pilots and information about Iraqi activities for U.S. officers who are preparing plans for a possible war against Iraq.

Destroying or neutralizing Iraq's air defenses would likely be the opening stage of a U.S.-led invasion.
 

 

 

Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld has rewritten American war strategy for fighting the limited battles of today's battlefields. Rather then suffering another Viet Nam in Afghanistan as the Russians, Runsfeld gave us a stunning victory in relatively short time with relatively few troops. His versatility has made him the man of the hour. A secular man I believe the Lord has raised up for our generation. I believe we are about to see his enterprising gift of leadership in action against Iraq (old Babylon).

God had used secular Babylon of the past as His instrument of chastening the disobedient Idolatrous Jews of that generation. God then used the secular Persians to overthrow the Babylonians absorbing them into the greater Persian Empire, and giving the Jews permission to return to the Holy Land. The Nations truly are accounted as dust in God's eternal plans. It is only the Jews that continue because God made promises to Abraham at the very beginning. It is our generation that gives testimony to the fact that God has again brought the Jews back to the Holy Land. Israel became a nation once more in this our generation. God's eternal plan and promise continues whether this generation acknowledges God's hand or not.

The Bible says in Revelation another city of Babylon (Bagdad) will exist. A city that will control the material wealth of that generation. A city that will be controlled by the antichrist who will be the leader of the Western world. Through the city of Babylon he will control the world of this future generation.

I only wonder if Donald Rumsfeld has been raised up to set in motion the things that God has long said will happen? I only wonder if this our generation is that generation God has chosen to accomplish His promises to the Jews?

America is soon to be of the Christian past; The Glory of Israel is soon to be the future!

 

 

The fall of the Future City of Babylon

Rev 18:1-20
18:1And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
2And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
3For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
4And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
5For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
6Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
7How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
8Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
9And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
10Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
11And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:

Five Palestinian school kids wounded in blast attributed to Jewish terror group

One bomb goes off at school-yard water cooler, second found and defused

By Amos Harel and Jonathan Lis

Five children, all around eight-years-old, were slightly wounded yesterday in a blast at a Palestinian school south of Hebron. Police and Shin Bet sources said Jewish terrorists were most likely responsible.

At about 9:45 A.M. the large home-made bomb went off by a water cooler in the school yard. Just a few minutes later the 380 pupils at the school would have been in the yard for their class break, principal Yusuf Abed Rabo said.

Police and army sappers called to the scene discovered a second bomb in the yard, and neutralized it. The five wounded children were hurt by glass and shrapnel flying into their classroom, and were taken by Red crescent ambulance to a Hebron hospital for treatment. All were lightly wounded.

The bombing at Ziff junction school was similar to two other bomb attacks on Palestinian schools. In one, eight children were wounded, and in a second attempt, a group of settlers from Bat Ayin was caught in the early morning hours outside an East Jerusalem girls' school after hauling a trailer packed with explosives to the front gates.

In March, a bomb went off in another Palestinian school in east Jerusalem, injuring a teacher and four children. A Jewish underground group claimed responsibility for that attack but no arrests have ever been made for that attack which came a few weeks before the Bat Ayin group was captured.

Palestinian Authority Minister Saeb Erekat said he held the Israeli government responsible for Tuesday's bombing. Israel "failed to bring any of those who kill Palestinians in cold blood to justice," he said.

Yehoshua Mor-Yosef, a spokesman for the Jewish Settlers' Council, condemned the bombing as an "immoral and illegal act."

 

 

There are wild animals among the Jews just as there are wild animals among the Moslems. There are wild animals among the Christians who actively murder abortion doctors, or seek revenge on religious matters. It is the responsibility of the religious leaders to put pressure on their respective governments to pursue and prosecute such behavior. The religious community is the primary group setting the moral standards of most societies. 

It is always a shame when religion offers refuge to the wild animals. Morality becomes meaningless. God has His own standards revealed in the Bible. All of mankind will be held accountable to Him. It is the God of the Bible who proclaims:

Rom 12:19
19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
KJV
 

The Jewish Kingdom must come through God's standards. It will never honor the indiscriminant murder of children as necessary for it to come into fruition. The morality of the God of the Bible is just too lofty. Children will die as they always have died as a result of sin, but never should the blame be transferred to God.

The whole world is heading to a new standard of righteousness. The morality of the Lord Jesus Christ will be that standard when His Kingdom is established. There will be no religion. but His religion. It will be to Him that all men will be held accountable. There will be no personal interpretations of the Bible by men when that day comes. The literal, fundamental meaning will be the only meaning as always intended.

Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be Done!

 

 

Vengeance Belongs to God Alone

Ps 94:1-12
94:1O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.
2Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.
3LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?
4How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?
5They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thine heritage.
6They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.
7Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.
8Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?
9He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?
10He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?
11The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.
12Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law;

Chapman asks: 'What does God have planned for us now?'
Sep 17, 2002
By Art Toalston

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)--Southern Baptists, "in spite of the struggle required, have gotten it right" over more than two decades of returning to the convention's biblical roots, said Morris H. Chapman, president of the SBC Executive Committee.

During the opening session of the Executive Committee's Sept. 16-17 meeting in Nashville, Tenn., Chapman used the occasion of his 10th anniversary as Executive Committee president to pose the question, "What does God have planned for us now?"

In Southern Baptist life in the days ahead, Chapman noted, additional questions -- personal questions -- are coming to the fore through the new "Empowering Kingdom Growth" convention-wide emphasis:

"Am I a Kingdom person? If not, how can I be? If so, how shall I live?"

Chapman reminded of the EKG mission statement: "Empowering Kingdom Growth is an initiative designed to call individual Southern Baptists to renew their passion for the Lord Jesus and the reign of His Kingdom in their hearts, families, and churches from which God can forge a spiritual movement marked by holy living, sacrificial service, and global witness."

The EKG vision statement, meanwhile, is "to seek first the King and His Kingdom,"
 

 

 

I would remind everyone that Bill Clinton along with Oral Roberts, and Pat Robertson (including most of their their followers) are Southern Baptists in good standing. If the Southern Baptists have it right, then all who can see through the phoniness of the Bill Clintons, and the Charismatic passion in opposition to right doctrine have it all wrong. These are not fringe Southern Baptists, but openly approved Baptists who wrestle for control of the entire denomination. The liberals have for the most part taken control of the Southern Baptist Universities and Seminaries, and have controlled the entire denomination in the past. The leadership waffles back and forth depending on who gets the votes at each year's convention. If this is getting it right, then The coming Jewish Kingdom of God based on God's sovereignty has it all wrong!

The literal, fundamental teachings of the Bible has always had it right:

2 Cor 6:17
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

Those who oppose God's standards of righteousness will never understand what the Kingdom is all about. They are certainly not the ones to be calling for Kingdom growth in light of today's Christianity which must depend on politics to determine what righteousness will rule each year? The liberal Baptists with their Charismatic friends will always have the potential to regain control of the Southern Baptist Denomination with the Denomination's refusal to abide by the doctrine of separation!

The Kingdom is coming to this generation because the main stream Christian Church has got it all wrong.  The days of revival have past for these stiff necked proclaimers of Christ. When the political maneuvering Southern Baptist Bill Clinton has the right to call it right, then it is time for God to intervene!

It is clear the lesson of Bill Clinton went right past the leadership of the Southern Baptist Denomination, and right past all the nominal Southern Baptists who want the heritage of Baptist while ignoring the responsibilities!

"Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be Done!"
 

 

The Southern Baptist Failure

Psalms 1

1:1Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

2But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

3And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

4The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

5Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

6For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

DRESSED TO KILL ON DAY TERROR RETURNS TO ISRAEL

By URI DAN and ALY SUJO

September 19, 2002 -- Israel found itself under attack again yesterday - at a bus stop where a homicide bomber blew himself up, and on a fashion runway in Beirut, where a shocking, blood-splattered dress was featured.

The "revolutionary" new dress, designed "in solidarity with the Palestinian uprising against Israel," was on display for Lebanese fashionistas.

With its depictions of bloodstains, bullet holes and tanks moving through a desolate rock-strewn landscape, the floor-length gown was featured as part of a collection at an Arab fashion festival which coincided with New York's own Fashion Week.

The dress was designed by Saudi haute couture artist Yehya al-Bashri.

In Israel, the violence was real.


 

Terrorism Renewed: Five More Israelis Murdered Today

Five Israelis were murdered this afternoon when an Arab suicide bomber detonated his explosives aboard a public bus in the heart of Tel Aviv. Everyone on the bus and in its vicinity - Allenby and Rothschild Streets - was hurt or killed; over 50 people were treated in nearby hospitals, including one with life-threatening injuries and another eight with serious wounds.
 

 

 

Islamic children are fed hate for the Jews from their families. They hear it every day from their teachers. Their clergy spit out the hate with the most venomous enthusiasm. Their news media report a one sided barrage of hate. Now, even their fashions follow the all familiar pattern of the only solution to the Jewish and the Islamic conflict is hate! The message is clear from every quarter of the Islamic culture - hate the Jews, and hate the Jew lovers!

Baby Suicide BomberThe conflict between the God of the Bible, and the Allah of the Koran is also clear. God has made a choice that only one culture will survive. It will be the culture based on the Bible. It will be the culture that teaches love your enemy not hate him. Islam has made a tragic mistake by challenging the God of the Bible. Their challenge is to the death, and God will oblige them as He will all rebels who would defy His sovereignty. The next dispensational part of God's plan is the Jewish Kingdom. World events make the reality of that Kingdom appear close at hand. God will change the hearts of the Jews in submission to Him alone, and the Bible says they will respond. I'm sure there will be some from the Islamic religion who will also convert, but the rest will suffer loss of everything at the final judgment.

   Baby Suicide Bomber!

God still loves His enemies, but His longsuffering is not without limit. Judgment will be the final ending to all conflict between God and man!

 

 

Bible Solution to Conflict

Matt 5:43-6:1
43Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

44But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

45That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

46For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?

47And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?

48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
KJV
 


The Judgment

Rev 20:12-15
12And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

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

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

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

The First Parcel of Jewish Land in Canaan

Gen 23:9

Sukkot

The eight-day holiday of Sukkot (nine days, outside Israel) begins tonight. Known as "holiday of our joy," it features joyous celebrations and commemorations of ceremonies in the Beit HaMikdash [Holy Temple], as well as the Torah commandments of living in a sukkah [small temporary home] and taking the Four Species - lulav (palm branch), etrog (citron), hadassim (myrtle branches), and aravot (willow branches).

 

Joseph's Tomb In The News

Fourteen Breslover hassidim (followers), including nine minors, were arrested last night - and released today - after they entered the Joseph's Tomb compound in Shechem in violation of military orders. Another Breslover group entered the site this past Monday night, and found that Arabs had burned several tires there. The army has allowed Jews to enter the holy site only once in the past two years - 78 people this past Yom Kippur Eve.

Col. Yossi Adiri, who served until recently as Shechem Region Commander, says that there is no military or security reason why Joseph's Tomb should not be constantly open to Jews. "It is closed only for political reasons," he told the Shomron Regional Council journal MeRosh HaHar [From the Top of the Mountain]. Adiri says he has much criticism of how the ill-fated battle for Joseph's Tomb was waged two years ago, and "one day I will write a book on it." Regarding his attitude towards Jewish residents of Yesha, he says, "I was always accused of liking them - and I admit that it's true… If the Yesha population would break down and abandon the area, it would impact very badly on the standing power of the IDF and the entire nation."

 

 

The issue is sovereignty clear and simple. It was God who directed the Jews to come to this land out of Egypt. The Sukkot is the booth representing those years of travel in the wilderness. It was God who gave the Jews the responsibility to uphold His sovereignty over the Holy Land (the promised land). It is the land God promised to Abraham, and where he bought the first parcel to bury his wife Sarah (Cave of Machpelah) in Hebron. Today, God is forcing a reluctant secular Jewish Nation to assume that same responsibility of His sovereignty over the same promised Holy Land. The Tomb of Joseph represents what God is preparing to do with the Jews and the coming Jewish Kingdom. Hearts must be changed before the Jews understand what this conflict is really about. The Jews as well as the rest of the secular world with all it's manmade religions are blind to what the present conflict in Israel represents. It is only those who understand the Bible from a dispensational view know the next dispensation is close at hand.

There is purpose in everything God does. There is purpose in this present tragic conflict. The whole world is in conflict with a God of absolute purity and holiness. He is the sovereign God who can not lose! The Lord of hosts is His name! It is His will being forced on the reluctant secular Jews whom He called to this same land a miraculous third time. It is to them that hearts will be changed , and the Third Jewish Temple will become mandatory.

 It is God's sovereignty that is being forced on a reluctant world!

Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be Done!

 

 

God is the Only Sovereign

Deut 4:37-40
37And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them, and brought thee out in his sight with his mighty power out of Egypt;

38To drive out nations from before thee greater and mightier than thou art, to bring thee in, to give thee their land for an inheritance, as it is this day.

39Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.

40Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, for ever.

100 Feared Dead in Russia Avalanche

By Yuri Bagrov
Associated Press Writer
Saturday, September 21, 2002; 1:01 PM

GIZEL, Russia –– A 500-foot-high chunk of glacier crashed down a Caucasus mountainside, burying a village in ice, rocks and mud and leaving as many as 100 people missing and feared dead Saturday – among them, a popular Russian action star who was filming a movie.

Part of the village of Nizhny Karmadon was destroyed, a government spokeswoman in Moscow said. The village, home to about 50 people, was almost entirely covered in ice, leaving little chance of finding anyone alive there, an emergency official at the scene said.

 

 

This is a rather insignificant though tragic news item. Hurricanes, floods, and earthquakes are not new news. I don't want to take this too far into loony land, but I remember reading how some of the worst weather in 100 years hit Europe during World War Two. I remember seeing news footage of the artificial harbor floated from England to support the D-Day invaders being hit by a 100 year wind storm that tore it apart almost destroying it completely. Thankfully, the invasion continued, and the allies won.

I know another great invasion is coming this time to Israel. It will be an Islamic invasion as described in Ezekiel 38 & 39. The Bible says the instigators of this invasion will come from North of the Caucasus mountains which is where much of the former Islamic Russians now live. Most of the new breakaway princes of their former master the USSR live North of the Caucasus such as Chechnya and Georgia.

I know the same God who watched over the inhuman behavior expressing His wrath on both the just and unjust during World War Two is watching what is happening North of the Caucasus. I would never go so far as to say this avalanche proves my speculation, but I do know God is watching! I know we are in the last days of the Church dispensation, and I know where the trouble for Israel will come during what I believe will be the beginning of the Great Tribulation.

 

 

 

The Coming Islamic Invasion

Ezek 38:1-7
And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

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

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

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

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

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

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

Address at morning prayers
Memorial Church
Cambridge, Massachusetts
September 17, 2002

I speak with you today not as President of the University but as a concerned member of our community about something that I never thought I would become seriously worried about -- the issue of anti-Semitism.

I am Jewish, identified but hardly devout. In my lifetime, anti-Semitism has been remote from my experience. My family all left Europe at the beginning of the 20th century. The Holocaust is for me a matter of history, not personal memory. To be sure, there were country clubs where I grew up that had few if any Jewish members, but not ones that included people I knew. My experience in college and graduate school, as a faculty member, as a government official -- all involved little notice of my religion. ...

Consider some of the global events of the last year:


have always throughout my life been put off by those who heard the sound of breaking glass, in every insult or slight, and conjured up images of Hitler’s Kristallnacht at any disagreement with Israel. Such views have always seemed to me alarmist if not slightly hysterical. But I have to say that while they still seem to me unwarranted, they seem rather less alarmist in the world of today than they did a year ago.

I would like nothing more than to be wrong. It is my greatest hope and prayer that the idea of a rise of anti-Semitism proves to be a self-denying prophecy -- a prediction that carries the seeds of its own falsification. But this depends on all of us.

 

 

Open anti-Semitism was presented to the world by the Nazi's of the 30's and 40's. Sadly, much of the world did not protest this sentiment, and not until the death camps came to light at the end of the war did the world finally respond to this great scandal which was kept for the most part behind closed doors. Today, it is not the Nazi's, but the Moslems who are presenting to the world an openly anti-Semitic attitude. Sadly again, much of the world is showing the same indignation it did during the 30's and 40's. This generation is different in that we know where anti-Semitism leads! We are without excuse before man and God!

Anti-Semitism has it roots in the fact that God made promises only to the Jews. This hate for Jews is openly expressed by the Moslems, and more subtly by the Christians and the rest of the world. Nothing can change God's plans for how human history will progress. He has clearly revealed in the Bible the Church age will end some day, and the Jewish Kingdom with Christ as King is His next intent. It matters not if all men were to vote God and His plans out! It would only bring upon man judgment! It is not up to man to question God.

The day seems close at hand when the Church age will end, and the day of the Jewish Kingdom begin. The feast of Tabernacles is presently being celebrated by the Jews. It is a reminder that it was God who called them out of the world (Egypt), and to inhabit the Land God calls Holy. It is only to the Jews that this land was given. We live in the day of a miraculous third entrance of the Jews into this same Holy Land. Every time the Jews entered the promised land it caused conflict. Anti-Semitism was openly expressed each time! Our generation must now chose as did all those former generations: "Will we fight God, or will we concede to His will?"

The world still hates the fact that God chose the Jews. Jesus is, and always will be Jewish. Those who can't accept His Jewishness will never be able to accept His saving gift of total remission for all sin. It was His Jewish sacrifice on Calvary's cross that bought salvation for all generations who will come submitted to Him the Jewish lamb of God! The lamb of God has no meaning outside of Jewish contents.

 

 

Sacrifice Related to the Lamb of God

Ex 3:18-21
18And they shall hearken to thy voice: and thou shalt come, thou and the elders of Israel, unto the king of Egypt, and ye shall say unto him, The LORD God of the Hebrews hath met with us: and now let us go, we beseech thee, three days' journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to the LORD our God.

19And I am sure that the king of Egypt will not let you go, no, not by a mighty hand.

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

21And I will give this people favour in the sight of the Egyptians: and it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye shall not go empty:

16:1The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.

2He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.

3And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

4A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.

Rice says US will rebuild Iraq as democracy

By James Harding and Richard Wolffe in Washington and James Blitz in London

Published: September 22 2002 19:41 | Last Updated: September 23 2002 11:08

The US will be "completely devoted" to the reconstruction of Iraq as a unified, democratic state in the event of a military strike that topples Saddam Hussein, said Condoleezza Rice, US national security adviser.

As the White House has begun to consider military strategies in Iraq, Ms Rice said the US would seek a swift victory by using "sufficient force to win".

Ms Rice, speaking in an interview with the Financial Times, signalled US willingness to spend time and money rebuilding Iraq after the fall of Mr Hussein's regime

Reinforcing the Bush administration's message that the values of freedom, democracy and free enterprise do not "stop at the edge of Islam", Ms Rice underlined US interest in the "democratisation or the march of freedom in the Muslim world".

 

 

It is the false peace coming on the footsteps of the "War on Terrorism" that remains a most dangerous event for this generation! Islam's heart will not change in the hatful attitude it has against the Jews even with a US victory on the battlefield. The democratization of Arab countries will only make them stronger. A peace between a secular democratic Israel, and new democratic Arab nations will prove false according to the Bible. An Israel at rest is a signal to me that Great Tribulation is about to overcome the entire world. I look at Ezekiel 38 & 39, and can envision fulfillment in our days.

I also feel the democratization of Iraq will revive old Babylon. I had thought Iraq would be combined with Iran in prophecy, but I'm inclined to change my thoughts in light of what is happening on the world scene this very day. I'm leaning toward seeing the revival of old Babylon separate from Iran and old Persia. I would now speculate that we may be witnessing the Western world taking control making old Babylon the financial center of the coming globalization plan?  It would be a fertile field for which the antichrist (future leader of the West)  would find available to him as he seeks to be a world dictator not seen since the days of Nebuchadnezzar.

Time for all this to happen could be only years away? I think how quickly the world changed since 9/11 barely one year ago.

Liberty and freedom is not always good. Freedom with a liberal twist is to kill unborn babies. Freedom with an Islamic twist is to torture and kill Jews.

 

 

Nebuchadnezzar's World Kingdom

Dan 2:25-38
25Then Arioch brought in Daniel before the king in haste and said thus unto him, I have found a man of the captives of Judah, that will make known unto the king the interpretation.
26The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof?
27Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king;
28But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;
29As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon thy bed, what should come to pass hereafter: and he that revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to pass.
30But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart.
31Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.
32This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,
33His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.
34Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.
35Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
36This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.
37Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.
38And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold.

Sukkot
September 21 - September 29, 2002

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

Feast of Tabernacles - Sukkot

Some 35,000 people arrived at the Western Wall this morning to take part in traditional Sukkot holiday prayers... Five busloads of visitors from North America, arrived in the sukkah of Yeshivat Beit El this afternoon... At least three of the Four Species of Sukkot have medicinal properties... Guests at Prime Minister Sharon's Sukkah

Sukkot Joy

Some 35,000 people arrived at the Western Wall this morning to take part in traditional Sukkot holiday prayers. The main attraction was the Priestly Blessing, where hundreds of Kohanim [of priestly lineage] blessed, as one, the thousands of worshipers. Police sources said that this was probably the largest gathering of worshipers at the Wall in the past two years. Taxis and private vehicles were not allowed into the Old City, thus that many thousands of people made their way to the holy site on foot.

Five busloads of visitors from North America, mostly from the New York area and the Young Israel of Forest Hills in particular, arrived in the sukkah of Yeshivat Beit El this afternoon. ...

At least three of the Four Species of Sukkot have medicinal properties. Margalit Shilo of the Leumit Sick Fund, quoted in HaTzofeh, counts the species' blessings: "The Etrog (citron) balances the liver's actions and increases appetite... Citron juice balances blood pressure... The Hadas (myrtle) is a cleansing agent, helping with intestine infections, stomach pains and constipation... and is an anti-dandruff agent... Water boiled with the Aravah (willow) can serve as a painkiller, and is good for the throat and gums..." It should be noted, however, that the Four Species used on Sukkot may not Halakhically be used for anything other than their ritual purpose until after the holiday.
 

 

ESROG

  • Should preferably be turning yellow rather than green.
  • The peel cannot be punctured through in any spot, nor can it lack any of its inner skin.
  • The peel cannot be overly soft, cracked, dry or peeled.
  • Even a small black dot on the upper part invalidates it.
  • The shape should preferably be like a tower - wider at the bottom and narrow at the top.
  • If this particular Esrog grew with a protruding stem (called a pitom), then that stem cannot be broken off. (However, if the Esrog grew in the first place without a pitom, it is still kosher.)

     

MYRTLE

  • You will need three myrtle branches.
  • A kosher myrtle has a pattern of three leaves coming out from the same point in the branch. This three-leaf pattern must be repeated over at least half the length of the branch.
  • Each branch should be at least 11 inches (29 cm.) long.
  • The branch cannot be dried out.

     

WILLOW

  • You will need two willow branches.
  • The stem should preferably be red.
  • The stem should be at least 11 inches (29 cm.) long.
  • The leaves should be oblong, not round in shape.
  • The leaves should have a smooth edge, not serrated.

     

LULAV

  • Look at the very top of the branch and make sure that the center-most leaf is not split, but rather is closed (at least half-way down).
  • The top cannot be cut off.
  • The branch cannot be dried out.
  • It should be at least 16 inches (39 cm.) long.
  • The straighter the branch, the better.

     

 

 

The Feast of Tabernacles is prophetically significant. After the Great Tribulation, it will be required of the entire world to pay homage to the King of kings and His Kingdom in Jerusalem! The Jewish Kingdom will rule the world. Ignoring the sovereignty of the Lord of hosts will not be allowed in this next dispensation. It will be the time when the very hearts of the natural beasts will be changed. The lion will lay down with the lamb. and the babe will play on the hole of the poisonous snake without fear of being struck.

The availability of this heart change will be presented to all men through the power of the Lord Jesus Christ. There will be no tolerance for sin in this Kingdom. HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD will be the theme of this coming culture that will encompass even the most mundane implements as the everyday cooking pots.

There will be sacrifice in that day. A Temple with an altar for blood sacrifice will be a daily reminder of the Lord Jesus Christ's sacrificial death at Calvary! It is His sacrifice alone that can atone for sin, and change the hearts of beastly mankind.

"Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be Done!"

 

 

Feast of Tabernacles Future

Zech 14:16 - 21
16And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
17And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.
18And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
19This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
20In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the pots in the LORD's house shall be like the bowl's before the altar.
21Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.

19Now there was no smith found throughout all the land of Israel: for the Philistines said, Lest the Hebrews make them swords or spears:
KJV
 

 

Qassam rockets were fired from northern PA-controlled Gaza into southern Green Line Israel. Magen David Adom emergency medical service officials reported four persons were treated and transported for smoke inhalation. Security officials report damage was sustained as a result of the attack.

One Injured in Negev Rocket Attack - (IsraelNN.com) One person was lightly injured by smoke inhalation a short time ago as a result of a PA rocket attack that hit the Negev area of southern Green Line Israel. Damage was also reported in the attack.
 

Rocket Attack Hits Southern Israel - IsraelNN.com) Qassam rockets have landed in southern Green Line Israel a short time ago. From the preliminary reports, there are no injuries.
 

 

 

The Qassam rockets now hitting Israel with much greater accuracy are complements of Al-Qaida. It is their technology that the bomb factories of the Palestinians are now using rather then the old fashioned short range highly inaccurate mortars. I suspect Hezbollah will soon be firing even more accurate longer range rockets from Lebanon into the very heart of Tell Aviv.  Again, thanks to the Al-Qaida that fled Afghanistan for safer territory.

The advancing technology is changing the face of the Middle East! King David brought a stone aged (slew Goliath with a stone) Israel into the modern world, and destroyed the technologically superior Philistines. Israel advanced from a sticks and stones army to a metal armored force to be reckoned with.  Today, Israel has the edge on technology, but staying one step ahead of her enemies may soon prove impossible in this computer age. The time is getting too short.

The hopes of a reasonable peace are even less likely for Israel's future. The hate of Islam is rooted from every direction of their culture. Lying and waiting for the advantage over the Jews is clearly the moral standard of the entire Moslem world. This entire religion has but one central goal anymore, and that is to destroy Israel. If not today, then tomorrow!

God has revealed in the Bible that He has a different plan for the future of Israel. It has nothing to do with technology, or false peace plans. God's plan involves the future glory of Israel as found in the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ!

The Coming Jewish Kingdom

Psalms 20

2Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion;

3Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah.

4Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.

5We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the LORD fulfil all thy petitions.

6Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.

7Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.

8They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.

9Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.

PA ARRESTS 18 COLLABORATORS

The Palestinian Authority has announced the arrest of 18 men suspected of collaborating with Israel. Eleven of the men are from within the PA security infrastructure.

Most of the arrested men have been accused of helping Israel kill top terrorist figures.

Despite the fact that, under the Oslo accords, the PA is supposed to help Israel eradicate terror, it has arrested dozens of men with charges of "collaboration." However this is the first time that the PA has announced the arrest of people from with its own security services.

The PA's statement came shortly after loudspeakers in Gaza City announced that a 22-year-old had been executed for "collaboration."

The Palestinian Security Service was holding the 22-year-old before he was allegedly being handed over to Hamas for his execution.
 

 

Where are the UN resolutions now? Do Arabs not get the same rights when Arabs are unjust to other Arabs? The UN has no credibility as a fair mediator over international events. They have passed over seventy resolutions overly critical of Israeli actions, but here where the whole world knows these Arabs are marked for death because they cooperated with Israel against terror as they were suppose to do will find the UN silent! The Arab concept of lying at Oslo, and signing international agreements with the intent that no Arab is to abide when it comes to torturing and killing Jews is considered being fair by the UN.

It seems clear the UN is already prepared to follow the antichrist when he rises to power. It is this kind of subtle anti-Semitism that the antichrist will present to the world. His followers are already lined up ready to go along with his lead.

The world stands by with hands in pocket claiming no responsibility, and puts another nail (a moderate Arab) in the coffin of Armageddon! A moderate Islamic should never be allowed to be categorized as a rebel by the governments of this world! The real rebels against Godly righteousness will soon be judged. Dispensational change is close at hand. A new Kingdom with a familiar righteous King is God's solution to the injustice of this present world system.

Double Holiday Tonight

Jews in Israel and throughout the world celebrated the mini-holiday of Hoshana Rabbah today, in which we are offered a "last chance" to atone for sins and request a blessed year. The double holiday of Shmini Atzeret and Simchat Torah is celebrated tonight and tomorrow (in Israel; elsewhere, it is divided into two days). The packed day marks the end of the current holiday season, and includes the beginning of prayers for rain, celebrations of the completion of the annual public Torah reading cycle, singing and dancing with Torah scrolls in synagogues and public squares, flags and sweets for children, Yizkor memorial prayers, and more. Arutz-7 wishes its readers a Chag Same'ach (Happy Holiday)!

Land Of Israel Keeps Growing          

HaGefen, the newest neighborhood of the Judea city of Beitar Illit, was dedicated yesterday. It boasts 1,150 housing units, half of which are already occupied. The hareidi city is situated in western Gush Etzion, and already has 21,000 residents.

In yet another display of growth in the Land of Israel yesterday, the new community of Migron (Samuel I 14,2; Isaiah 10, 28) celebrated its launching in the Binyamin region, roughly between Psagot and Michmash, on the road to Beit El and Ofrah. Its first families arrived six months ago, and it today boasts 30 families and five singles, as well as a fledgling nursery and daycare center. Hundreds of people came to celebrate with the residents yesterday, in a program featuring the introduction of a new Torah scroll, lectures, and entertainment for children.

 

 

The penalty for any Arab to sell land to a Jew is death. Yet, to the chagrin of the Arabs Israel continues to grow. To the Arabs it is gnashing of teeth. To the Jews it is fulfilling dreams formulated in the Bible millenniums ago. The conflict is between the people of the Book, and the people of the Koran. One is true, and the other blasphemy. One of these peoples will survive while the other will face the wrath of the LORD of hosts.

The Arabs think that leaders such as Arafat and Saddam will bring in through hate and violence a golden age of Islam in the Holy Land. The Jews remain blind to what the God of the Bible is doing. Only redemption can wash away that blindness, and that redemption can't come until the true Christian Church steps aside at the rapture. It is then that many Jews will see that it is through the humility and love taught by Jesus Christ that the Jewish Kingdom must be established. It will also be a day when the LORD of hosts will manifest His wrath on a resistant world. It is the Bible which will prove the victory. It will be the LORD of hosts who will fight for the Jews. The next Jewish Temple will be built, and blood sacrifice will once again be presented to the God of the Bible on the Temple Mount. The last Temple looked forward to a redeeming Messiah that would be the perfect sacrifice. The next Jewish Temple will look back to Calvary.

The next dispensation is not for Islam, or the Christian Church, but a Jewish Kingdom with a perfect King to rule all the world in perfect righteousness!

 

 

Looking Forward

Isa 53
53:1Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?
2For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
3He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
7He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
8He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
9And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
10Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.
11He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
12Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

British Chief Rabbi to revise book after fellow rabbis see heretical elements

LONDON. -- Britain's trouble-prone Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks has agreed to revise his latest book when it is published
again after fellow Orthodox rabbis suggested that the views he expressed could be regarded as heretical.

Still smarting from the bruising controversy provoked by his book-hyping interview with the Guardian late last month, Sacks has impaled himself on fresh embarrassment with his latest book, the "Dignity of Difference," which preaches greater inter-faith understanding and contends that no single religion contains the whole truth.

 

God reveals in the Bible that He is going to change the hearts of the Jews, and they will return to true Biblical Judaism. One good sign of a return by anyone to the Bible is the realization that the Bible is an exclusive book about an exclusive God who will not share his worship with any other. God declares His righteousness, and lost sinners agree they miss the mark. God has a plan to save lost sinners, but it is an exclusive plan availed only to those who will come to His only Son the Messiah/Savior. The salvation plan is open to all, but few there are willing to follow the narrow road. The Bible prevents an attitude of anything goes, and all religions are basically the same! The inter-faith proposal by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks is heretical! It would let men decide who is supposedly righteous apart from the righteousness of God as revealed in the Bible. Faith in any god is the heresy that the Bible will not excuse! The fact that other Rabbis called him on this issue forcing him to recant is good news for the Bible. The Biblical way is the narrow way, and the only way with no exceptions.

 

No Other God

Ex 34:12-16
12Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest it be for a snare in the midst of thee:
13But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves:
14For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:
15Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their gods , and do sacrifice unto their gods, and one call thee, and thou eat of his sacrifice;
16And thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after their gods.

Turkish Police Seize Weapons-grade Uranium

ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkish paramilitary police have seized more than 33 pounds of weapons-grade uranium and detained two men accused of smuggling the material, the state-run Anatolian news agency said on Saturday.

Officers in the southern province of Sanliurfa, which borders Syria and is about 155 miles from the Iraqi border, were acting on a tip-off when they stopped a taxi cab and discovered the uranium in a lead container hidden beneath the vehicle's seat, the agency said.

 

U.S. Split on Iraq Despite Bush Hope

Congress Sharply Divided Over Iraq Despite President Bush's Predictions of Unity
The Associated Press


W A S H I N G T O N, Sept. 29 — Despite President Bush's predictions of unity on Iraq, members of Congress voiced sharply divergent views Sunday on military action to remove Saddam Hussein from power.

Two Democratic congressmen, speaking from Baghdad, said Iraqi officials have assured them that they will allow weapons inspectors unfettered access. The lawmakers accused Bush of wrongly pushing the United States toward war.

 

 

155 miles is just too close to wait any longer! I know what Saddam would do to Tel Aviv had he gotten these 33 pounds of weapons-grade uranium. I know what he would do to the American fleet in the Persian Gulf. The wake-up call has been sounded. Delay at this point is unconscionable. Circumstances should now be dictating the timing of world events, and the pending attack on Iraq.

I'm convinced Saddam has delusional visions of Islamic messianic grandeur. I'm convinced Saddam is willing to sacrifice all the people of Iran to gain the glory he seeks. There are indications his health is failing, and he must know time is short for him. His future is no longer what he can accomplish in life, but rather what kind of a future can he have in death. The one thing he can never allow is to be humiliated. Much like Hitler his end may come hunkered down surrounded in some bunker with a self inflicted bullet to the head? It would be far better this happen before he gets some atomic bombs. I can only imagine how World War Two might have ended had Hitler in those last days had some Atomic Bombs in his hands.

The timing of the Lord is always right for the circumstances. Imagine if Hitler could have stalled the end of the war for just a few years. He would have had the time needed to develop all the super weapons he envisioned. How terrible the world would have faired without God working out the circumstances and timing of all events!

 

 

The Set Time has Come

Ps 102:13
13Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.
KJV

Ps 69:13-18
13But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.

14Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.

15Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.

16Hear me, O LORD; for thy lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.

17And hide not thy face from thy servant; for I am in trouble: hear me speedily.

18Draw nigh unto my soul, and redeem it: deliver me because of mine enemies.
KJV
