Israel’s Legal Right to the Land

25 01 2017

1920_-_original_territory_assigned_to_the_jewish_national_home-400x267

ISRAEL FACT CHECK Israel is the legal owner of the land of Israel, including Judea and Samaria, the so-called West Bank. Lost in the propaganda barrage is the historical legal record, which has just been confirmed January 12, 2017 by a French Court. First mentioned in the Balfour Declaration of 1917, it became law at the San Remo Conference on April 25, 1920 (see blue links below). It was confirmed by the League of Nations and later by the United Nations. So why the confusion now?

Modern propaganda relies on the simple historical ignorance and definition of the term “Palestine.” Any Christian can whip out his Bible and point to the maps section where many Bibles show a map of “Palestine in the time of Christ.” The problem is that there was no Palestine then. The term was invented for the area by the Romans after the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD. They intentionally renamed Israel as Palestina in order to further humiliate and destroy the Jews. They invented the term, drawing from Israel’s historic enemies, the Philistines, with absolutely no connection to modern Palestinians, who are actually Arabs mainly from Syria and Egypt.

Furthermore, it was not a country, but under Roman rule. In fact, it never became a country later and there has never been a country called Palestine. The name was more of a description of that part of the Roman Empire. Later it became part of the Ottoman Empire for four hundred years before World War I, but never a country of itself. There is no Palestinian culture separate from Arabs. There is no separate Palestinian language or history. It was invented by PLO terrorist Yassar Arafat in the 1960’s as a means of replacing and destroying Israel.

They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” Psalm 83:4

Israel is the legal occupant of the West Bank, says the Court of Appeal of Versailles

For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. Romans 11:25

Jerusalem Embassy Controversy

21 12 2016

jerusalemoct172016The United States has Embassies in 167 countries, but in only one country is our embassy NOT in that country’s capital city. Israel is the only one that the United States refuses an embassy in their capital. Our embassy is in Tel Aviv, not Jerusalem. Israel named Jerusalem as its capital in 1950, not to overlook that King David made it his capital over 3,000 years ago. All Jews have considered Jerusalem their capital for 3,000 years, whether they are in the land or scattered among the nations.

The US Congress passed a law in 1995 requiring our embassy be moved by 1999. However, a six month waiver included, allowed the President to waive the mandate. Each President has signed the waiver every six months for over sixteen years. But this year is different. President-Elect Trump insists that he will move our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Most Israelis rejoice with the prospect. Yet, extreme leftists and most nations are in a panic about the move. David Friedman’s nomination as US Ambassador to Israel further confirms Trump’s intention to follow through.

I maintain that the near future will see Israel annexing Judea and Samaria (the entire West Bank). This is the only option for peace. The two-state plan is dead. Hamas is gaining influence over the Palestinian Authority and Israel simply will not allow Hamas to take over the area.

Prophecy is clear that Israel will win the Psalm 83 War as their enemies fight one another. It is the same as the Midianites in Gideon’s day yielding total victory for Israel. Prophecy is also clear about the status of Jerusalem, which is why it is so important for us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. This is what the sovereign God of Israel says:

This message concerning the fate of Israel came from Yehovah: “This message is from Yehovah, who stretched out the heavens, laid the foundations of the earth, and formed the human spirit. I will make Jerusalem like an intoxicating drink that makes the nearby nations stagger when they send their armies to besiege Jerusalem and Judah. On that day I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock. All the nations will gather against it to try to move it, but they will only hurt themselves. Zechariah 12:2 NLT

Israel…Is…Real

1 12 2016

dry-bones-trumpOnce upon a time we could assume that a Jew would naturally support the survival of the Jewish State. Once upon a time we suspected all Christians of being secret antisemites. Well, those days are gone forever! Here’s hoping that President Trump appoints a dedicated Zionist to the post of Ambassador to Israel, and that does not necessarily mean a Jew. (comments by Yaachov Kirschen, Israeli cartoonist who has drawn Dry Bones since 1973)

I have enjoyed the Dry Bones cartoons almost from the beginning. It is such a joy for me to see Mr Kirschen recognizing the major change in evangelical Christendom from replacement theology to openly Zionist. I have never met him, but consider him a true friend, due to the common bond of Zionism. He knows that all Christians are not Zionists, and that it is also true that not all Jews are Zionists. I applaud him for his honesty. Keep up the great work!

On a related point, consider the hypocrisy of one of Israel’s main political parties. They have changed their name from Labor to the Zionist Party; yet, they are anti-Zionist. They are in favor of dividing the land for a two-state solution. (By the way… been there – done that! The land dedicated by Britain for a Jewish state was already divided to create a Palestinian state. That is how we got Jordan. Now they want to divide the land again for another Palestinian state!) The “Zionist Party” is just the opposite. They are co-opting the term to confuse things.

My view is clear. The only solution that will bring peace is annexation of Judea and Samaria (West Bank). As I wrote in a recent blog, if you want your prayers answered, pray what Yehovah God has already said He is going to do.

“For behold, in those days and at that time, when I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land.” Joel 3:1-2

Act of War?

22 11 2016

plo-demoHere is an odd little story to spice up your holiday.

‘Muezzin Law is a declaration of war’ The Palestinian Authority is warning that Israel’s law to ban loudspeakers for the Muslim call to prayer (5 times daily) is an act of war.” Really? “The Palestinian Authority leadership blasted a proposed law to ban the use of loudspeakers to broadcast the Muslim call to prayer from mosques across Israel, warning that if passed the law would spark a new war.”

Turkey has also weighed in: Turkey: ‘Muezzin Law’ is an insult “Turkish Deputy Prime Minister says law prohibiting mosques from using loudspeakers is an insult to the history of Jerusalem.”

What is wrong with this picture? Well, for starters, many nations already have a loudspeaker ban in place. This includes Muslim nations such as Egypt, UAE, and Saudi Arabia.

Secondly, Jerusalem has been Israel’s capital for over 3,000 years. Islam has been around less than half that time.

If I forget you, O Jerusalem, Let my right hand forget its skill! If I do not remember you, Let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth— If I do not exalt Jerusalem above my chief joy. Psalm 137:5-6

Thirdly, why the double standard? If other countries ban loudspeakers under decibel rules, why can’t Israel?

Other Countries Muffle Mosques, But Israel Cannot? (This a great article from Israel Today, my favorite Messianic site.) “Quite the controversy is raging over Israel’s proposed legislation aimed at muffling the five daily Muslim calls to prayer from local mosques. In recent decades, the call of the muezzin has been amplified by multiple loudspeakers, resulting in tremendous noise pollution starting at 4:30 AM every morning.”

Of course the issue is not the new law, it is an excuse for another accusation against Israel. Her enemies continue to demand the elimination of Israel.

UC Berkeley Offers Class in Erasing Jews From Israel, Destroying Jewish State This article reveals a new class at UC Berkeley that was stopped temporarily and then reinstated. The anti-Israel propaganda machine is world-wide, and especially strong on US campuses. We need to pray for our students that they will learn actual history, which will protect them from the lies of revisionist history.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! I pray you will have a wonderfully blessed Thanksgiving.

Hear the word of Yehovah, O nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, “He who scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him as a shepherd does his flock.” For Yehovah has redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of one stronger than he. Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, streaming to the goodness of Yehovah — for wheat and new wine and oil, for the young of the flock and the herd; their souls shall be like a well-watered garden, and they shall sorrow no more at all. Jeremiah 31:10-12

So…, Trump. Now What? How to Pray.

18 11 2016

trump-prayer-shawlPraying for President-elect Trump is an opportunity for me to explain a wider concept of intercessory prayer. Have you heard of prophetic intercession? It is a completely different approach to prayer. A friend and brother recently asked for my thoughts on the subject; and it seems worthy of sharing more widely. Contrast prophetic intercession with what I call “pathetic” intercession. Please don’t whine when you talk to God. Prayer is conversation with God; so be adult about it. He has made certain promises which He expects us to remind Him about, and hold Him to them. Pray with a basis for expecting Him to do what we ask because He said He would.

Praying for the new President and “leader of the free world” is a sobering assignment and is not for the faint of heart. The future of our country, Israel and indeed the world is at stake. So, let’s look at a few simple ideas about prophetic prayer.

Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. Romans 13:1-2

Prophetic Intercession – a Twelve Step Plan

  1. Pray into what God has already declared He will do.
  2. Prayers are answered if you pray what God wants.
  3. Don’t whine or beg; but agree with God.
  4. Authority is from above; God’s heart, not your heart. (King David Acts 13:22)
  5. Pathetic intercession is about what I want (general, all about me).
  6. Prophetic intercession is targeted (specific, God’s plan). Example: Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
    May they prosper who love you. Psalm 122:6 This is a prayer God will answer.
  7. What do you see God doing? Pray into that.
  8. What do you hear God saying? Pray into that.
  9. What has God already said and done? Base your request accordingly.
  10. Requires scriptural foundation.
  11. Requires hearing the Holy Spirit
  12. Requires seeing by the Holy Spirit (Elisha and his servant 2 Kings 6): eyes to “see”.

And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. 2 Peter 1:19-21

Native American Historic Forgiveness

25 10 2016

all-tribes“TODAY MAY GO DOWN AS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT IN AMERICAN HISTORY.” An extraordinary event happened in Washington, DC last Friday while no one was watching. Representatives of nearly all native American nations gathered for one purpose in prayer led by Chief Dr. Negiel Big Pond. They were there to declare forgiveness to the United States of America for all the  treaties broken by the US. If you don’t know the history, almost every treaty was broken. The US government has a miserable record toward the sovereign Indian nations.

Chiefs and leaders from 1,000 tribes met to simply forgive. The US did not ask for it. Indian leaders initiated it out of Christian love, as a way to remove America from the righteous consequences of broken governmental vows. This is is their statement:

“We, the All Tribes DC Council invite all Tribes and Nations to join us on October 21, 2016 at the Washington Memorial in Washington, DC to release the power of forgiveness and to bring healing and restoration to America.
As indigenous people of this land, we carry a governmental responsibility to bring a Nation back to its ordained purpose. A representation of Nations within a Nation, we believe in an outcome that will yield a bountiful harvest of souls through the power of forgiveness.
This is the first time in the history of America that the First Nations people will lead a National Day of Prayer for the healing of this Great Country. It’s time for us to take our rightful place in the Body of Christ and lead this Great Awakening!” All Tribes DC

All Tribes D.C. National Day of Prayer for the First Nations • Oct. 21, 2016 Here is a listing of the tribes. http://www.alltribesdc.org/

NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN TRIBES FORGIVING U.S.A. FOR EVERY BROKEN TREATY  (a full report from Rick Joyner)

TODAY MAY GO DOWN AS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT IN AMERICAN HISTORY. Very few may even know that anything special happened. Jesus even said that the kingdom came “without observation,” or unnoticed. Some of the greatest things happen that way, and only a very few who have their eyes open, and are looking in the right direction, see them. So what is happening today that is so special?

One Thousand North American Indian Tribes from the U.S. and Canada are sponsoring a special ceremony on the Mall in Washington to forgive the U.S. Government for all of its broken treaties. In Scripture, breaking a vow or treaty brings a curse on the land, and the U.S. Government broke every treaty it made with the Native American Tribes. Chief Negiel Bigpond, the primary coordinator for this event, told me that they were going to forgive the U.S. whether we asked for it or not, simply because they do not want our country to suffer the consequences of this any longer. This is one of the most noble acts of true Christian charity I have ever heard of by any people group.

Have we suffered because of the curse that comes when we break an agreement? We have suffered profoundly, and virtually every major crisis America is facing right now is a reflection of the crisis on that the Native Americans have endured on the reservations that were directly caused by the broken treaties. A couple of years ago Chief Bigpond shared about a ten minute address with a room full of high impact leaders and some world class thinkers, which he titled, “Welcome to the Reservation.” He connected all of the crises we had been discussing to what they faced on the reservations, and when he finished it shut down the meeting as no one else there wanted to speak after such a profound revelation, besides, we had possibly the most important answer to the crises.
This is very real. National injustices are a major issue we’re facing now whether we want to or not, and this is a big one. We will continue on the road to oblivion if we do not consequences of injustices that were sometimes done generations ago, but are still a festering, infected would that is poisoning the whole body.
I’ve known Negiel for many years, and I’ve never seen him ever display a victim mentality, or bitterness. I call him “the happiest Indian” and I think he may be. He’s a transcendent leader and thinker of such stature possibly because he does not waste his time on pettiness, and he so easily forgives. I once asked Chief Bigpond if he was offended by the Washington Redskins name, and his reply was, “Only when they play bad.” One thousand tribes are going to forgive us today simply because they don’t want us to suffer for wrongs done to them. Have you ever heard of anything so noble? How would our world change if we all started to think like that? ~ Rick Joyner

“But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,” Matthew 5:44

UN Revisionism

14 10 2016

dry-bones-bds-revisionism

UNESCO backs resolution ignoring Jewish link to Temple Mount You can’t make this stuff up. Now the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has voted to make the Temple Mount in Jerusalem a Muslim holy site exclusively. The decision effectively denies 3,000 years of Jerusalem as the Jewish Capitol. It also claims that the Western Wall is Muslim. What foolishness. The tragedy is that much of the world will believe it. The anti-Semitic anti-Israel propaganda has reached new lows for blatant lies and revisionist history.

Prime Minister Netanyahu understandably reacted strongly. Netanyahu called the decision “absurd,” while President Reuven Rivlin called it an “embarrassment” for UNESCO… “To say that Israel has no link to the Temple Mount is like saying that China has no link to the Great Wall or that Egypt has no connection to the Pyramids,” Netanyahu said, adding that “with this absurd decision UNESCO has lost what little legitimacy it still had.” He also said UNESCO was ignorant regarding the Bible, and accused the body of taking part in a “Theater of the Absurd.” What’s next? A UNESCO decision denying the connection between peanut butter and jelly? Batman and Robin? Rock and roll?

Deputy Foreign Minister Hotovely: UNESCO decision an ‘affront’ to Jews and Christians

Israel suspends cooperation with UNESCO over Jerusalem vote. Bennett says all work with ‘history-denying’ global body will be halted, as resolution ignoring Jewish ties to holy sites ‘gives boost to terrorism’

Trump slams UNESCO decision. Trump, Netanyahu, lawmakers, slam UNESCO declaration that Israel has no historic ties to Temple Mount.

Those who fight against Yehovah will be shattered. He thunders against them from heaven;
Yehovah judges throughout the earth. He gives power to his king; he increases the strength of his anointed one. 1 Samuel 2:10 NLT

Happy 5777 New Year!

4 10 2016

shofarJewish New Year 5777 began Sunday night with the sounding of the trumpets around the world. What will the coming year hold for this planet? With the Jewish year started and 2017 only three months away, storm clouds seems to be everywhere. From Hurricane Matthew, to the US break with Russia over Syria, to the economic crisis, to the major US presidential elections, foreboding signs abound.

But it is not all gloom and doom if you believe in Yehovah God and Jesus, His Messiah Son, Yeshua ben Yehovah. My preference to gloom and doom is doom and va-voom! Zionist Christians along with Jews are observing Trumpets, Yom Kippur and the Feast of Tabernacles. Prophetically, this is the time for repentance, reflection and hope. This is the very season that the Messiah comes, at the sounding of the trumpets (Yom Teruah).

So, don’t lose faith. Don’t look down, but look up. Our redemption is drawing near. Yes, there are clearly predicted prophetic events yet to unfold, but Jesus said He would never leave us or forsake us. God said He would tabernacle among us! Run to the Rock of Yehovah to find refuge!

The name of Yehovah is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe. Psalm 18:10

Yehovah lives! Blessed be my Rock! Let the God of my salvation be exalted. Psalm 18:46

Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say: “Yehovah is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” Hebrews 10:5-6

(I have taken the liberty to change the word “LORD” to Yehovah. Every single time you see LORD or GOD in all capital letters in the Old Testament, the actual Hebrew word is Yehovah. This name occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text, yet remains untranslated in most Bibles. His name, obscured for 2,500 years, is now being revealed. It is TIME to restore the name of Yehovah!

Policy or Personality?

28 09 2016

“If you want to make America great again, seek the One who made America great the first time.” (Pastor Ken Lawrence),

My brother is pastor of River of Life Church in Sandpoint, Idaho. His statement sums up the heart of Christians everywhere. Our future is bigger than the candidates in the election. Typical politics make it about personality when it is always really about policy. Folks who opposed the leftist policy agenda of President Obama were accused of racism. The same agenda now touted by Hillary draws accusations of sexism. My prayer is that America will wake up to the “wrong track” reality of that agenda.

Democrats will win and democracy will lose, if we are distracted from’ policy. I challenge every believer reading this to consider the stated goals of the party platforms. One is rooted in Biblical values and the other has moved far left. As a Christian Zionist, Israel policy is at the top of my list. On Israel, the Republican Platform is the most pro-Israel in history, while the Democratic Platform is the most anti-Israel in history. But that is only one issue. Consider this clear comparison from LIFE SITE News.      (Click here for enlarged PDF)

platform-1

platform-3

YES! Pray, pray, pray, but VOTE! It is your Christian duty in the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave! Many have fought and died for our voting privilege. Don’t squander it.

The Holy Spirit gave me a verse in February that I first thought was “exposing” Trump. It speaks of pride, arrogance, evil and a perverse mouth. However, I now believe it exposed at a far more insidious evil revealed by the full-throated policy of the Democratic Party. If you are a believer, and you have seriously studied the above chart; can you really vote for their platform? Are you voting for the person or the policy?

The fear of Yehovah is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverse mouth I hate. Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom; I am understanding, I have strength. By me kings reign, and rulers decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, all the judges of the earth. I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently will find me. Proverbs 8:13-17

Don’t Feed the Animals

23 09 2016

don't feedThe food stamp program, part of the Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever in its history.

Meanwhile, the Park Service, also part of the Department of Agriculture, asks us to “Please Do Not Feed the Animals,” because the animals may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves. (Thanks to Dave McCurdy for this.)

Does anyone notice a disconnect here?

This bothers me on three levels. First, is the obvious fact that our government is systematically creating total dependence on its services. Between welfare and government employees, 50% of Americans now depend directly on the government for their “daily bread”. The transfer from depending on God to man is breathtakingly arrogant, and is accelerating.

Second, this creates a “demanding spirit”. Derek Prince, Bible teacher and mentor, used a profound phrase: “You can never satisfy a demanding spirit”. A genuine, sincere request can be answered. But once people get something for nothing, they always want more.Hell and Destruction are never full; So the eyes of man are never satisfied. Proverbs 27:20 There is a satanic spirit behind the demands. It is also illustrated in the demands of terrorists. All attempts to meet their demands are only answered with more demands. Appeasement is a dead end.

Third, never cast your pearls before swine. Jesus taught, that not valuing your gestures, they would turn and attack you! Don’t waste what is holy on people who are unholy. Don’t throw your pearls to pigs! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you. Matthew 7:6

There is a place for food stamps for truly needy people, but it should have the goal of independence rather than unending dependence. The same can be said of nearly unlimited unemployment benefits. There are now operational plans where the benefits lead to actual employment. For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat. 2 Thessalonians 3:10

Censoring Trump

6 09 2016

trump-prayer-shawlThere are a growing number of reports about the liberal media openly opposing Donald Trump’s presidential run. The latest example has dangerous implications for Jews, Christians and our American political system. Consider the censorship last Saturday.

Saturday Trump spoke at a black Christian church in Detroit. After he finished speaking, the pastor, Bishop Wayne T. Jackson, presented him with a Talit, a Jewish prayer shawl, along with a Messianic Jewish Bible. As the pastor quoted “with God nothing is impossible,” the video feed suddenly blacked out in mid-sentence.

It turns out that the video feed was cut intentionally by order of the Director of the Reuters News Agency who was providing the single pool feed for all networks. It was done over the objections of the cameraman. I conclude that the topic was rejected by Reuters for three reasons.

  1. It was very positive for Trump to be honored by a black pastor and contradicts the media narrative that no African Americans will vote for him.
  2. The pastor clearly made a connection to honoring Israel and Christians who share common Jewish roots. After the video was cut, the pastor went on to point out that Jesus was a Jew and most of His early followers were Jews. (Here is a link to a cell phone that caught the rest of the presentation: Facebook video – You need to have Facebook to listen and watch this part.)
  3. The Scripture being quoted by the pastor was a strong declaration of Christian and Jewish faith that the Director tried to block.

Here are more links:

The Hebrew God Who Has No Name

30 08 2016

Hebrew God cover photoMy brand new book has arrived! Please consider ordering it online by clicking on the picture. It is time that we learn to use God’s name, which is Yehovah. Here is a brief synopsis from the Introduction:

“My title comes from the classic movie, The Ten Commandments, starring Charlton Heston as Moses and Yul Brynner as Pharaoh. The Pharaoh, who worships many gods, mocks Moses as bringing “the Hebrew God who has no name.” However, the opposite is true. Moses was sent to declare the personal name of God, as clearly seen here in Exodus at the burning bush:

God also said to Moses, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘Yehovah, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is my name forever, and thus I am to be remembered throughout all generations.” Exodus 3:15: ESV

Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son’s name, If you know? Proverbs 30:4 

The ultimate intent of Yehovah God is not to be the “Hebrew God who has no name”. However, in the current status quo, the Name of the Creator God of Scripture is missing. The good news? God intends to restore His Holy Name, especially in the context of the rise of Islam’s pagan deity. This book reveals and restores the Name of Yehovah God and gives the people who are called by His Name, His identity. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob wants the world to know Him by His Name.

Today, our planet is as lost and enslaved as the Hebrews in Egypt; and we see Yehovah God again revealing, restoring and declaring His Name. Please follow along this journey of rediscovery as we find not only the truth of His name, but the purpose of using His name in the 21st Century.” The Hebrew God Who Has No Name

  2. Why Jesus Came – Time to Know the Father
  3. Finding Refuge in the Name of Yehovah

Action Points

Thank you for your prayers for this project, that it will be used to open the eyes of the people of Yehovah God, both Jews and Christians, to a new intimacy with Abba God our Father in Heaven, who indeed has a name used over 6,800 times in the Hebrew text of Scripture. It is mistranslated as LORD, but now is the time with the rise of Islam’s counterfeit god that we use the covenant Name once again, Yehovah!

End of Season Sale: Pay Now Play Later?

23 08 2016

Dry Bones Clinton FoundationDoreen and I were just discussing this. By announcing that foreign governments will not be able to buy influence through the Clinton Foundation if Hillary is elected, they have made it clear. Send money now! It’s your last chance. They can still contribute right up to November 8. That is the message.

How far we have fallen from integrity and trust in our beloved United States. We must pray for God’s mercy. I know many are thinking they can’t vote for either candidate, but I see a binary choice, one or the other. We need to hear from God’s Holy Spirit, and applying all wisdom from above; we must vote!

Too many brave men and women have died for our precious freedom to vote. Please don’t throw it away. Use your vote. The platforms are opposites. The contrast between liberal/conservative, insider/outsider, status quo/change, pro-abortion/pro-life, anti-Israel (as in more of the same)/pro-Israel and then there is the marriage issue, the bathroom issue, corruption and on and on, ad nauseam.

Many are sick of it already, with 77 days to go. But don’t lose heart. Here are two reasons to believe God for mercy for America.

  • There are still millions of believers in Yeshua who have not bowed their knees to Baal. Pray. Hard.

“Yet I have reserved seven thousand in Israel, all whose knees have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him.” 1 Kings 19:18

  • Our nation has sent the Gospel around the world: Jesus, the Bread of Life. We are now the recipient of many missionaries from far nations bringing the Gospel back to these shores for a Third Great Awakening.
Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days. Ecclesiastes 11:1

Pray for Israel. Pray for America. Pray. Hard.

Pray for One Another

1 07 2016

LOLConfess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. James 5:16 NLT

A new phenomenon has emerged in Christian relationships with non-Christians. We are offering to pray for them when they share a need or a hurt. God responds by touching them in such a way that they know He did. It may be healing or they may feel “electricity” or heat or fire in their body. It is a reversal of traditional “witnessing” where we started with their sin and their “lostness” rather than their pain.

This is patterned after the Luke 10 model of first blessing, then fellowship, then sharing their hurts and then prayer. It is at this point, after God acts, that we can share the Kingdom of God.

Speak peace (blessing) – “But whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ Luke 10:5

Eat and fellowship – “And remain in the same house, eating and drinking such things as they give,” Luke 10:6

Heal the hurts – “And heal the sick there,” Luke 10:9a

Share the Gospel – “say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’” Luke 10:9b

A friend in our home group has been praying for people out in the marketplace for several months with supernatural healing testimonies every week. Another friend is spending the summer in Germany sharing Jesus with Muslim refugees and also seeing supernatural results. He has talked to several who have a story of “a man in white” in their dreams, leading to salvation and baptism. Some even experience severe persecutions from other Muslims and their own families.

The key is to pray with them. We all need to offer to pray for anyone who shares their pain and need with us. It is what allows Yehovah God the Father to touch them through Jesus and the Holy Spirit; in a way that opens their heart to His Kingdom.

For King Jesus and for His Kingdom!

Terror War is Not Human

17 06 2016

Dry Bones Religious programmingThe debate this week has been about using the phrase: “radical Islamic terrorism.” However, even using that phrase misses the real problem. This is not simply a human war. There are real living spiritual demonic forces behind the human activity.

For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12 NLT

Most view Islam and Sharia as only a political ideology. They see the religion as less significant. But Islam is a demonically empowered religion. Communism might have conquered the world if it had a religious fanaticism component. Islam is more dangerous because it has the political world supremacist ideology married to the fundamentalist religious spirit.

Jesus warned about bothThen He charged them, saying, “Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.” Mark 8:15 NKJV

The leaven of the Pharisees was the religious spirit of “self-righteousness.” The leaven of Herod was the political spirit of “self-interest.” Communist supremacy, Nazi supremacy, and even “white” supremacy are all primarily political. Islam is both.

Most Christians are aware that God gave us the power of the Holy Spirit in Acts 2. Most also know that the Greek word translated “power” is “dunamis.” It is the root of our English words “dynamic” and “dynamite.” However, most Christians don’t know about the revelation of Luke 10. The King James translation for generations read like this:

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:19 KJV

Notice that the word “power” is used twice. This choice of the translators had the effect of hiding an important revelation. They are not both “dunamis” in the Greek. The first one is actually the Greek word for jurisdiction or jurisdictional authority. Later translations read like this:

Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:19 NKJV

So, the devil has dunamis power and we have dunamis power. The difference is that followers of Jesus have authority or jurisdiction over the enemy power. Therefore, our victory over the spiritual forces arrayed against us, depends completely on the authority of Jesus that has been given to us to overcome the enemy. Praise God! So let’s do it. Make sure you battle in the spiritual dimension. Don’t allow distractions to human issues.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Israel Exists = God Exists

1 06 2016

536748_385193128190099_100000982451242_1074228_1062423626_nIsrael is profound proof of the existence of Yehovah, the God of the Bible. A Messianic ministry in Israel is producing a series of videos calling Israeli Jews back to their roots in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Please enjoy the video. (Click here if it doesn’t load).

The rebirth of Israel as a nation-state, in such perfect correspondence with prophecies thousands of years old, is the most tangible evidence that God is real, and that He is faithful to His word. The above video is part of a much larger series produced by the Messianic ministry One For Israel on their Internet portal iGod.co.il (Hebrew only). The aim of these videos is to cause fellow Israeli Jews, so many of whom have turned their backs on God in their frustration with today’s religious authorities, to reëxamine the evidence before them. Israel Today 5-30-16

“For you are a holy people to Yehovah your God; Yehovah your God has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth. Yehovah did not set His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any other people, for you were the least of all peoples; but because Yehovah loves you, and because He would keep the oath which He swore to your fathers, Yehovah has brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you from the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. 
Therefore know that Yehovah your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments; Deuteronomy 7:6-9

(I have taken the liberty to change the word “LORD” to Yehovah. Every single time you see LORD or GOD in all capital letters in the Old Testament, the actual Hebrew word is Yehovah. This name occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text, yet remains untranslated in most Bibles. His name, obscured for 2,500 years, is now being revealed. It is TIME to restore the name of Yehovah!

Israel Government Shift

20 05 2016

LibermanThis week while I am speaking in Idaho, Israel has seen a major change in its governing coalition. Even after months of back channel pressure from Britain, U.S. and Egypt to choose a liberal path, Netanyahu surprised all by moving right. Instead of forming a “unity” with the Labor party, he invited a conservative party, expanding unity on the right.

Avigdor Liberman is head of Yisrael Beytenu, a conservative party representing Russian immigrants and settlers. He is a “settler” himself. Even the description is a loaded term, because Israel considers all of it citizens equally. Living in Judea or Samaria, (called West Bank by globalists and anti-Israel propaganda).

This means Israel will stand  in stronger agreement with Bible prophecy. The two-state idea is dead. The real answer is annexation of Judea and Samaria. The Palestinian leaders will never accept a Jewish state of any size. This week, they have again denied Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

2,500 Year-old Prophecy for Today

17 05 2016

nebuchadnezzars-imageThe prophet Daniel wrote over 2,500 years ago at the end of the Babylonian Captivity. He heard from God, and the word applies today. The Lord spoke to me this morning from a song written by my old friend, Ron Aldridge, years ago. from Daniel, chapter 2. I can still sing parts of it, although I think he has forgotten it himself. It comes from the King’s dream that only Daniel could interpret. As you know, it was a vision of world history and the great empires.

This part is often overlooked for the dream, but contains great revelation for today. Daniel was thanking God for giving him the answer. Today we are on the verge of the last great prophetic season change.

Then the secret was revealed to Daniel in a night vision. So Daniel blessed the God of heaven.
Daniel answered and said:
“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever,
For wisdom and might are His.
And He changes the times and the seasons;
He removes kings and raises up kings;
He gives wisdom to the wise
And knowledge to those who have understanding.
He reveals deep and secret things;
He knows what is in the darkness,
And light dwells with Him.
I thank You and praise You,
O God of my fathers;
You have given me wisdom and might,
And have now made known to me what we asked of You,
For You have made known to us the king’s demand.” Daniel 2:19-23

There is so much in these verses.  First, he blessed God for His wisdom and might. Then Daniel lists seven things God does. Each is so profound it will explode in your spirit if you let them soak into your core. To save space, I underlined each action verb.

Changes Times and Seasons – I believe we are at the final turning point of history. In the United States, if you thought the election has been wild, fasten your seat-belt. Greater turbulence lies ahead. We are entering a new un-chartered season. Yet, we do not fear. Daniel ends his prayer of thanks with an amazing declaration. The attribute of God that Daniel began with is now his! You have given me wisdom and might.” Wow! If God had not answered, Daniel and all the wise men of Babylon would have been executed.

The season is changing, but God is with us. Jesus said He would never leave us or forsake us. Ask big things. Expect big answers. Yehovah, God of wisdom and might, shares His with us! Might is deadly without wisdom. Make sure to pray for both. Pray for our leaders and this election season, but know that there is a greater season upon us.

Yehovah God is Faithful!

Bright flash of light marks incredible moment life begins when sperm meets egg

Human life begins in bright flash of light as a sperm meets an egg, scientists have shown for the first time, after capturing the astonishing ‘fireworks’ on film. 

An explosion of tiny sparks erupts from the egg at the exact moment of conception. Scientists had seen the phenomenon occur in other animals but it is the first time is has been also shown to happen in humans.

Not only is it an incredible spectacle, highlighting the very moment that a new life begins, the size of the flash can be used to determine the quality of the fertilized egg. 

What a wonderful story about the moment life bursts into existence at conception. This is a good news story to brighten you day. Northern Idaho is the location for my current ministry trip. Just seeing the incredible beauty all around with the mountains and lakes and fir trees gives me sweet refreshing. It is ministry to my spirit. Be sure to click on the link above for the full article. There is a 35 second video also on the site.

And that my soul knows very well. Psalm 139:14

London Buses: Glory to Pagan god

10 05 2016

busAs I leave for an Idaho ministry trip, thought you might find this interesting. London has elected its first Muslim Mayor and critics are calling it Londonstan. Some areas of the city are over 50% Muslim.

Separate from this, but coincidental is a new ad campaign on London buses that say: Glory to A-lh, using the name of the god of Islam, as you can see in the above photo. It is happening faster than you think!

All this while the U.S. is arguing over who can use the ladies restrooms and showers. Maybe there should be a course in our schools about the rise and fall of Rome. We are on the same path. God bless Governor McCrory.

Yet, all is not lost. Jesus is still on the throne. Millions are still coming to the Messiah, including Muslims. Praise the Lord! Keep faithful to Yehovah God and His Son, Yeshua ben Yehovah.

Please pray for me for this Idaho ministry, speaking 6 or 7 times. Greetings to my Idaho family!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

The Hebrew God Who Has No Name

29 04 2016

IMG_1824blue

The Hebrew God Who Has No Name is the title of a brand new book that I am co-authoring with my good friend John Fisk (available mid 2016). Here is an overview of our goal to help restore the practical usage of God’s covenant Name.

Our title comes from the classic movie, The Ten Commandments, starring Charlton Heston as Moses and Yul Brynner as Pharaoh. The Pharaoh, who worships many gods, mocks Moses as bringing “the Hebrew God who has no name.” However, the opposite is true. Moses was sent to declare the personal name of God as clearly seen at the burning bush, in the Hebrew text.

God also said to Moses, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘Yehovah, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is my name forever, and thus I am to be remembered throughout all generations.” Exodus 3:15: ESV

Yet, amazingly, almost no one knows His Name. In practice, He really is the Hebrew God who “has no name”. Christians have many books and even posters that list “the names of God.” However, all those names are descriptions of His character and power. Very few Christians or even Jews know the name, Yehovah. And if they don’t know it and use it, certainly the rest of the world has no clue to His personal name. Does it matter?

The holy personal Name appears in the Hebrew text 6,828 times!The Name is Yehovah, sometimes pronounced with variations such as Jehovah, Yahweh or Yahowah. We will use Yehovah. We explain why in a later chapter. This has been obscured because the translators follow an old Jewish custom of saying LORD instead of the Name. Translators change Yehovah to LORD (all caps). You will be amazed at how Bible revelation opens up as you begin to use His Name. Our aim is to convince you to use His Name in your everyday relationship with Him.

Today, our planet is as lost and enslaved as the Hebrews in Egypt, and once again Yehovah God is revealing, restoring and declaring His name. Please follow along our journey of rediscovery as we find not only the truth of His name, but the purpose of using His name in the 21st Century.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Passover: Life or Death?

22 04 2016

A Passover jpegPassover 101 Tonight, millions of Jews and Christians all around the world begin celebrating seven days of Passover, remembering a critical turning point of history. After 400 years of Egyptian slavery, God’s chosen people were freed to establish the nation of Israel in the Land chosen by Yehovah God.

The story of their deliverance and the ten plagues will be detailed in each Passover meal this week, but I want to focus on the macro view. Yehovah revealed how He planned to deal with sin. Ever since the Fall of Adam and Eve, we all were born with a sinful, selfish nature. One way to satisfy God’s justice was destroy all the wicked and start over.

Original sin: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, Romans 3:23 The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23

The wonderful news is that He had a better way to satisfy the justice demand of a death for a death. He first gave an animal sacrifice in blood to cover our sin, one year at a time, renewable on the annual Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur. However, this only covered our sin. The permanent solution was to offer His only begotten Son, as the “Lamb” of Yehovah God. This blood sacrifice was so pure, so Holy, it washes us clean, and holy, and righteous: blameless before God! Hallelujah!

We tend to think of the death of the firstborn in Egypt as the main message of the Exodus story, but I submit to you that the main point is the LIFE that was given to the Hebrew slaves. Any Hebrew family that put the lamb’s blood on their doorpost was spared. But if any Egyptian family believed what Moses said from God, they also would be spared. But, Pharaoh hardened his heart and refused God’s offer. The salvation from death was for all who believed. The same is true today. Any single person who believes in Jesus as the Lamb of God will have his or her sins forgiven and granted eternal life in fellowship with Father God and His Son, Yeshua the Messiah!

As I said in my newest book, Blessing Israel, God did not choose Israel as a means of excluding all the nations, but as the means of saving everyone who believes in Him. So, is the main theme of Passover, death? Or, is it life? The choice is yours.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

UN Vote Friday to Condemn Israel

19 04 2016

Golan 4-16

We are now at a critical crossroad in the US/Israel relationship. This week two profound and very negative choices face the Obama administration. One is the Golan issue on the Israel/Syria border. The other is at the United Nations.

  • This Friday the Palestinian Authority is pushing a vote in the UN Security Council against Israel. They last tried in December 2014 and could not get the nine yes votes to pass it. This time they have the votes. The only way to defeat it is with a US veto; and President Obama is threatening and intimidating Israel with the suggestion that he may not veto the resolution.
  • Update 4-22-16 Prayers answered PA to freeze UN resolution on settlements in wake of French pressure

Judgement Day – Will The US Turn It’s Back On Israel At Friday’s UN Vote? Prophecy News Watch: Such actions would be unprecedented in US/Israel relations but some believe Obama has been emboldened by his actions in Iran and Cuba, and that the Palestinian cause could be his final act of legacy to “bring peace” to the Middle East. 

ANALYSIS Since the last showdown in 2014, makeup of Security Council has changed in Palestinians’ favor, so Obama holds the key. As Palestinians head back to the UN, cause for concern in Israel. Upcoming Security Council resolution is projected to easily win the votes it needs — and this time a US veto is far from assured. Times of Israel

  • This week the Obama Administration joined with Russia in a plan to force Israel to give up the Golan Heights to Syria. Israel annexed the Golan in 1981 because Syria used it to fire rockets down on northern Israel. This is an ominous development that exposes the sinister Obama hidden agenda to punish Israel for Prime Minister Netanyahu’s refusal to knuckle under US pressure to force a two-state solution.

Netanyahu: We Will Never Surrender Golan Heights Israel’s Cabinet convened its weekly meeting atop the Golan Heights on Sunday so that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu could pointedly inform the world that, in light of the current situation in the region, there is no chance Israel will ever return the strategic plateau to Syrian control. Israel Today

United States ‘doesn’t consider the Golan a part of Israel State Department spokesperson rejects Netanyahu’s comments that the Golan will forever remain under Israeli sovereignty. The United States does not consider the Golan Heights to be a part of Israel, State Department spokesperson John Kirby stressed on Monday. Israel National News

US and Russia Team up to Seek Israel Pullback from Golan DEBKAfile’s intelligence sources and its sources in Moscow report exclusively that Israel’s top political leaders and military commanders were stunned and shocked last weekend when they found out that US President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin have agreed to support the return of the Golan to Syria. The two presidents gave their top diplomats, Secretary of State John Kerry and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, the green light to include such a clause in a proposal being drafted at the Geneva conference on ending the Syrian civil war. DEBKAfile

Pray according to scriptureDeliver me, O Yehovah, from evil men; preserve me from violent men, who plan evil things in their hearts; they continually gather together for war. They sharpen their tongues like a serpent; the poison of asps is under their lips. Selah Keep me, O Yehovah, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from violent men, who have purposed to make my steps stumble. Psalm 140:1-4

Good News Update

Dry Bones Passover cartoonHere is some good news for your mid-week prophecy update.

  1. The arch from the Temple of Baal that was going up in Times Square on April 19 has been cancelled! Praise the Lord! I wrote about it in this earlier blog (Baal worship in NYC). Here is the updated story: Victory!…
  2. After six months of terror attacks against Israeli civilians, it is finally showing significant signs of stopping.
  3. A major problem of links to desalinization and heart disease has been solved: Israel, world leader in desalination, is considering adding magnesium to solve the problem.
  4. The Hebrew language is a miracle; it was dead and now is the living official language of Israel. It is another example of prophecy fulfilled. For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of Yehovah, to serve him with one consent. Zephaniah 3:9

Baal Worship in NYC and London

1 04 2016

baal arch…so that Satan will not outsmart us. For we are familiar with his evil schemes. 2 Corinthians 2:11

Today is a serious subject: the rise of Baal worship around the world.

When ISIS destroyed the pagan temple of Baal in Palmyra, Syria, it was viewed as the destruction of “world heritage.” I get that, but something unexpected resulted from that event. A major demonic principality seized the opportunity to go global. In a consequence comparable to opening Pandora’s Box, something very evil is emerging. Now don’t misunderstand me, we should not fear, but find the position of faith and prayer war to resist and counter what Satan intends to do.

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7

The seemingly innocuous story was announced in the New York Times on March 19, 2016:

NEXT month, the Temple of Baal will come to Times Square. Reproductions of the 50-foot arch that formed the temple’s entrance are to be installed in New York and in London, a tribute to the 2,000-year-old structure that the Islamic State destroyed last year in the Syrian town of Palmyra.

The Institute of Digital Archaeology is the organization behind this effort, and the display of these two arches is intended to be the highlight of UNESCO’s World Heritage Week late next month. Charisma News

It has also been characterised as a gesture of defiance against religious extremists’ attempts to erase evidence of the Middle East’s pre-Islamic history. The Guardian

The plot thickens when you learn the date the arch will rise in NYC and London. April 19 just happens to be the beginning of one of the most important occult/pagan holidays of the year:

April 19 is the first day of the 13-day Satanic ritual days relating to fire, the fire god, Baal, or Molech/Nimrod (the Sun God), also known as the Roman god, Saturn (Satan/Devil). This day is a major human sacrifice day, demanding fire sacrifice with an emphasis on children. This day is one of the most important human sacrifice days, and as such, has had some very important historic events occur on this day.” Prophecy News Watch

baal Occult riseI appeal to you to read the full details at the links provided. This no small matter. As I said at the top, we do not fear. We are responsible to pray and stand against the schemes of the devil. An arch is a gateway; and the devil is trying to claim admittance to our land. We must resist. The earth belongs only to Yehovah and to Messiah Yeshua (Jesus). The plan is to plant hundreds more of these arches in major cities all over the world! Please take this soberly and pray resistance.

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore… Ephesians 6:10-14a NKJV

A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. Stand your ground… Ephesians 6:10-14a NLT

The Cheeky Candidate

28 03 2016

GWToday we have a “words are fun” segment. I was trying to think of a word to describe a certain candidate for President. I will not mention his name. See if you can guess. One word jumped out, so I looked up the meaning and found it became a thread connecting two other words that also seemed to capture the spirit of this candidate.

CHEEKY:  rude and showing a lack of respect

  1. insolently bold: impudent

IMPUDENT: failing to show proper respect and courtesy: very rude

  1. lacking modesty
  2. marked by contemptuous or cocky boldness or disregard of others: insolent

INSOLENT: rude or impolite: having or showing a lack of respect for other people

  1. insultingly contemptuous in speech or conduct: overbearing
  2. exhibiting boldness or effrontery

(This string of definitions are from Merriam-Webster).

Many Christians are being deceived by this candidate whom they celebrate for his “cheeky” words. In fact he is praised for “punching back” when he is offended. I simply ask you this. Is that the Christian, or even civil way to communicate with one another? Both the Old and New Testaments agree on a better way.

A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. Proverbs 15:1

Jesus said: You have heard that it was said, “An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.” But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. If anyone wants to sue you and take away your tunic, let him have your cloak also. Matthew 5:38-39

(Disclaimer: I am not a pacifist. There are righteous reasons to go to war. This is about simple public discourse and behavior of one seeking the nation’s highest office.)

Thanks again to my favorite Israeli cartoonist, Yaachov Kirchen.

“Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Esther 4:13-14

Ancient Perpetual Hatred of Israel

10 03 2016

Dry Bones Iran missilesThis week Iran fired two test missiles with the words (in Hebrew) “Israel Should be Wiped Off the Earth” painted on the sides of the missiles. Is this new or unique to history? Of course not! Hitler used similar language, even comparing the annihilation of the Jews as “exterminating rodents”. But it certainly did not start with Hitler, either. Consider this verse written by Ezekiel over 2,700 years ago. Notice that he considered it “ancient hatred” even then!

“Because you have had an ancient hatred, and have shed the blood of the children of Israel by the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, when their iniquity came to an end, therefore, as I live,” says the Lord Yehovah, “I will prepare you for blood, and blood shall pursue you; since you have not hated blood, therefore blood shall pursue you.Ezekiel 35:5-6

The King James version calls it “perpetual hatred.” So what is the source of this relentless quest to destroy God’s beloved Israel? It is Satan himself. He hates Yehovah, but cannot touch Him, so He attacks the apple of God’s eye, Israel. This is clear in Psalm 83.

Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, and do not be still, O God! For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; and those who hate You have lifted up their head. They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, and consulted together against Your sheltered ones. They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” Psalm 83:1-4

Satan’s goal is that Israel be forgotten. Where did he get that idea? I have said many times that the devil is not creative. He does not originate, he can only pervert what already exists. Here is where he got the idea to wipe Israel off the map.

For I will take from her mouth the names of the Baals, and they shall be remembered by their name no more. Hosea 2:17

Through Hosea, God was telling Israel’s future, that their worship of false gods would end. They would return to the living God of Israel, and the pagan gods’ names would be forgotten. Satan stole the idea of “wiping from memory” from Hosea’s prophecy. Satan didn’t have a new idea, he just perverted the eternal plan of Yehovah God.

So therefore, I don’t put much stake in Iran’s threats. They are just another in a long list of attempts to destroy Israel that will fail. I choose to stick with the faithful promise of Yehovah’s word.

Thus says Yehovah, Who gives the sun for a light by day, the ordinances of the moon and the stars for a light by night, Who disturbs the sea, and its waves roar (Yehovah of hosts is His name): “If those ordinances depart
from before Me, says Yehovah,  then the seed of Israel shall also cease from being a nation before Me forever.” Jeremiah 31:36:37

(I have taken the liberty to change the word “LORD” to Yehovah. Every single time you see LORD or GOD in all capital letters in the Old Testament, the actual Hebrew word is Yehovah. This name occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text, yet remains untranslated in most Bibles. His name, obscured for 2,500 years, is now being revealed. It is TIME to restore the name of Yehovah!

Voting Guide for Believers

7 03 2016

voteI am not impressed so far with the so-called evangelical voters. They are all over the map and quite confused. What is the source of their decisions in this primary season? How about you? It is decision time in many states with early voting (as my state of North Carolina). I have prayed earnestly for wisdom from above.

An Election Self-test for Bible Believers.

  1. Do you pray before you vote? Or: Separation of church and voting booth? Invite Jesus into your voting booth. Really. Ask God for whom you should vote.
  2. Are you motivated by the flesh or the Holy Spirit? Look at the occasion of Jesus rejected by the Samaritans: And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, “Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?” But He turned and rebuked them, and said, You do not know what manner of spirit you are of. For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them.” Luke 9:54-56
  3. What is in your heart? The question is not like the commercial: “What is in your wallet?” But, what is in your heart?
  4. Are you voting for David or Saul? When Saul was King, man was King. When David was King, God was King. He raised up for them David as king, to whom also He gave testimony and said, “I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart, who will do all My will.” Acts 13:22
  5. What would Jesus do? WWJD Jesus is the servant king (like David). Does your candidate have a servant’s heart?
  6. Beware the leaven of the Pharisees and of Herod This is a longer teaching, so let me summarize. Pharisees had a religious spirit which was self-righteousness. Herod had a political spirit which was self-interest. Both are very bad, don’t go there with your vote.
  7. Are you for justice or mercy? Be careful how you answer. There is a great clamoring for justice today. Do you understand what our nation justly deserves: immorality, corruption, blasphemy, killing our own babies? Put it this way: Do you want God to give you exactly what you deserve? Or do you choose mercy and grace? Pray for mercy and vote accordingly. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, ​​For they shall be filled. ​​Blessed are the merciful, ​​For they shall obtain mercy. Matthew 5:6-7

When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules, the people groan. Proverbs 29:2

When someone tells me they saw a good movie, I ask them: “Do you mean good, in the sense of Godly?” So if you tell me you have a good candidate, I simply ask: “Do you mean good, in the sense of Godly? Pray for wisdom from above!

VOTE GOD’S HEART!

To Scarf or not to Scarf?

Dry Bones hijab day

 

Last week I wrote on World Scarf Day. This week we need to dig a little deeper. Really, why are naïve Westerners joining the Islamic propaganda machine by calling for women to wear the Islamic head scarf, the hijab?

This Dry Bones cartoon highlights the confusion. While their own citizens are murdered for refusing to wear it, the capital city of Ottawa, Canada calls for Canadians to wear the scarf. This ignorant duplicity must be exposed. Here is a great excerpt from an article published by The Gatestone Institute.

This Thursday, February 25, 2016, the city of Ottawa will be holding a public event celebrating the hijab, Islam’s physical repression of women.

  • The outrage is that Hijab Solidarity Day will be taking place under the auspices of the City of Ottawa, the capital of Canada. It is not the role of a democratic government to celebrate religious symbols or to help religions proselytize.
  • The government’s acceptance of an Ottawa Hijab Solidarity Day amounts to accepting a radical legal system that is completely contrary to Canada’s democratic values, and crosses the line that separates Church and State. Endorsing the hijab is endorsing the first step of an extremist ideology that leads to and condones honor killings, female genital mutilation (FGM) and the oppression of women.
  • In 2007, Aqsa Parvez, a 16-year-old Pakistani Muslim living in Toronto, was strangled to death by her father. Her crime was that, as a free woman in Canada, she chose not to wear a hijab. In another case in Canada, in 2012, four Muslim women were murdered by their own family for refusing to wear a hijab and preferring Western clothing. What Is Canada Doing Celebrating Hijab Day?

Last week I emphasized the Biblical name of God, Yehovah. Here is an excerpt from my book, Simple Islam, which takes it a step further. Judeo/Christian nations need to heed the four Bible prohibitions listed here.

Chapter 11 – Stop Saying the Names of other gods

Most God-fearing Christians and Jews completely understand and respect the first commandment to have “no other gods” before Yehovah. Yet, in the Western nations, including America, many have opened up their thinking to other gods in the name of tolerance. This makes me want to ask them: “What part of ‘no other gods’ don’t you understand?”

It is only recently that I have found a more specific prohibition on the subject. You may have noticed by now that I am reluctant to say or write the name of the god of Islam. It is because the Bible prohibits it! What if we in America or at least believers were to practice the following four scriptures? Notice how the Holy Spirit progressively adds another component to the prohibition with each verse.

Here is the prohibition

And in all that I have said to you, be circumspect and make no mention of the name of other gods, nor let it be heard from your mouth.   (Exodus 23:13).

Then Joshua adds three more conditions.

You shall not make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause anyone to swear by them; you shall not serve them nor bow down to them, but you shall hold fast to Yehovah your God, as you have done to this day.  (Joshua 23:7).

The way a person converts to Islam is by standing in a public place and swearing allegiance three times to the god of Islam and his messenger, Muhammad. The next step is to serve that god and bow down to it. You have seen many examples of Muslims doing that even in public five times a day. I am ashamed to say that in a widely publicized picture, President Obama, who professes Christianity, bowed down 90 degrees from the waist to the King of Saudi Arabia, who is the religious custodian/keeper of Mecca.

The third scripture introduces another aspect, blood, which especially applies to Islam. This blood thirsty death cult delights in the shedding of blood in the name of their god. Hence, we hear the perverse oath proclaimed by every suicide bomber before detonation, that his god is the greatest.

Their sorrows shall be multiplied who hasten after another god; Their drink offerings of blood I will not offer, nor take up their names on my lips.   (Psalm 16:4).

Fourth, Hosea adds a final point. Not only will we not speak their names, but eventually their names will not even be remembered.

For I will take from her mouth the names of the Baals, and they shall be remembered by their name no more.   (Hosea 2:17).

Words matter. It is time to re-think our terminology and our naïve embracing of other religions.

World Scarf Day

17 02 2016

American-Muslim-Women-IP_1Actually, it is called World Hijab Day. It is one of the most dangerous tools of Islam to deceive the West. Their narrative is that it is a wonderful way to choose modesty. In point of fact, however, it is used in radical Muslim theocracies to imprison women and to mark those who refuse as apostates. Don’t believe the lying propaganda.

The history of modern Turkey illustrates my point. As a consequence of losing World War I, the Ottoman Empire was required to abolish the Caliphate headquartered in Turkey. Turkey was legally secularized and the hijab faced a widespread ban in most circles. After 80 years, a new leader arose in Turkey (Erdogan) who legalized the hijab once again. This has directly contributed to the new radicalization of modern Turkey. His plea was for “democratic freedom” to wear it. However, once it became legal, husbands and male authorities were able to persecute any who refused it. Thus we see it increasing every year as women are once again enslaved by this totally sexist religion.

World Hijab Day is now invading American schools as a way of experiencing and learning about Islam. Here is a quote from a school principal who endorsed it for her school in Rochester, New York, followed by comments from the Clarion Project:

“We are an experiential school; we engage kids in all kinds of activities and projects all of the time, so the perspective of being able to learn what a hijab is, why some women choose to wear it and why some women don’t choose to wear it, and we provide the opportunity to experience it; it is well within protocol of experiential learning.”

Unfortunately, learning about “why some women don’t choose to wear it” – or more pointedly, what happens to women in certain Muslim countries and societies who have no choice whether or not to wear it — was not part of the program.

As prominent Muslim human rights activist Asra Nomani writes in the Washington Post, events such as these are a “painful reminder of the well-financed effort by conservative Muslims to dominate modern Muslim societies”.

I highly recommend The Clarion Project as an excellent source. Of course, I also invite you to read my book, Simple Islam. I explain how Islam and the Bible are irreconcilable. We need to know the personal name of God. Yehovah is the God Israel and the Bible. Islam’s god has a different name and a very different character.

And God spoke all these words, saying: “I am Yehovah your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. “You shall have no other gods before Me. “You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, Yehovah your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments. Exodus 20:1-6

We are living in perilous times. Make sure you know your Bible and know how to hear from the Holy Spirit. That is especially necessary for this Presidential Election. (But that is a blog for another day.)

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Great News for Israeli Christians

12 02 2016

Aramaic ChristiansMost Christians in Israel are not Arabs. This is a little known fact. The Palestinian Arab population came with the Muslim conquest hundreds of years after Jesus walked the Land. But there was another people group during that period called Arameans. Jesus Himself spoke Aramaic as well as Hebrew.

Today, most of the so-called Arab Christians are actually Arameans. The great news is that Israel has now recognized them as a separate ethnic identity among Israeli citizens. I have written of this previously, (Israeli Christian Citizens in the IDF?) but this is a further update. Here is the new article:

Israeli Christians Officially Recognized as Arameans, Not Arabs Earlier this year, Israel took the first step in recognizing the nation’s Christians as an independent minority. Now, local Israeli Christians can register as a distinct ethnicity, as well. Lumped together with the Arab population for centuries, Israel’s Population, Immigration and Border Authority (PIBA) has been instructed to now recognize the bulk of the country’s Christians as Aramaeans, the actual ethnicity of most of the region’s Christians prior to the Arab Muslim conquest. “The existence of the Aramean nationality is clear and obvious,” wrote Interior Minister Gideon Saar in his official directive to the PIBA. Saar noted that local Aramean Christians have a distinct “historical heritage, religion, culture, descent and language” – all the conditions necessary to be recognized as a national or ethnic group. The change in the national registry will be by request for those Christians born into Christian families or clans and who can speak Aramaic. Financial Spots

This decision will liberate the Aramaic Christians from being under the thumb of the Muslims. Already, these Christians are loyal citizens of Israel, serving in the Israel Defense Forces with distinction. They are clearly pro-Israel. I praise God for this wonderful news. Israel is the only nation in the Middle East where Christians are valued equally. Most Muslim countries officially discriminate against Christians at the least, and commit genocide at the worst. We need to pray for persecuted Christians and rejoice at the recognition they now have in Israel.

For he is our peace, who has made us both one, and has broken down the dividing wall of hostility, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace. Ephesians 2:14-15 NASB

Pray for the true peace of Jerusalem!

Tailwind for Terror

30 01 2016

Dry Bones Ban Ki-MoonUN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon showed his bias and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned his words this week in a heated exchange.

Netanyahu blasts UN’s Ban: “Your remarks are a tailwind for terror Speaking to the UN Security Council in a session on the current situation in the Middle East, Ban condemns terror wave, but says it is ‘human nature to react to occupation’… Netanyahu accused UN Secretary- General Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday of supporting Palestinian terrorism.

“It is human nature to react to occupation, which often serves as a potent incubator of hate and extremism,” Ban had told a Security Council meeting in New York.

In what became a war of words, Netanyahu shot back: “The secretary-general’s remarks provide a tailwind for terrorism. There is no justification for terrorism. Those Palestinians who murder do not want to build a state, they want to destroy a state and they say this openly.”

Ban made his remarks on the same day that terrorist victim Shlomit Krigman, 23, was buried in Jerusalem. The young woman was fatally stabbed on Monday evening by two Palestinian terrorists. Jerusalem Post 1-26-16

Perilous Times and Perilous Men
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 2 Timothy 3:1-5
