Passover News from Israel

27 03 2018

Passover at Temple MtHere are some very interesting stories about Passover from Israeli news sources for your enjoyment. My last commentary was about why Christian Zionists observe Passover. This time I just want to share a glimpse into modern Israeli culture around Passover which starts at sundown this Friday.

Treasure trove of ancient Jewish ‘freedom coins’ just in time for Passover  JERUSALEM, Israel – Hebrew University archaeologist Dr. Eilat Mazar uncovered a rare treasure trove of bronze coins from the time of the Jewish revolt against the Romans more than 1,900 years ago. “A discovery like this – ancient coins bearing the words ‘Freedom’ and ‘Redemption’ – found right before the Jewish Festival of Freedom, Passover, begins is incredibly moving,” she said.

Third Temple Alert: Police Authorize Passover Sacrifice Next to Temple Mount – Last year, the Passover sacrifice was conducted in the courtyard of the nearby Hurva Synagogue in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City, some 450 yards from the Temple Mount. This year, it will take place at the Davidson Center, an archaeological park situated at the southern foot of the sacred plateau, and just below the Al Aqsa Mosque.

Symbolic and Traditional Passover Recipes A poll just taken in Israel – which, incidentally has a majority secular population – found that 67.3 percent of Israeli Jews will eat only kosher (satisfying the requirements of Jewish law) food for Passover and that 63.1 percent will also clean their homes, removing all traces of hametz, or unleavened products, symbolic of sin. (Note from Les: The author made what I am sure was simply a typo. It is “leavened” products removed, not unleavened.)

PA: Passover rites a ‘dangerous precedent’ – Palestinian Authority says Jewish worship in vicinity of Temple Mount is unacceptable, vows to continue to pay terrorists.

So this day shall be to you a memorial; and you shall keep it as a feast to Yehovah  throughout your generations. You shall keep it as a feast by an everlasting ordinance. Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall remove leaven from your houses.Exodus 12:14-15

Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us. Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 1 Corinthians 5:7-8

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Political Morality: The Mother of All Oxymorons

9 10 2016

(Scott Harris – Flickr: Mouth Washed Out With Soap)

Okay, so the standard is morality. Fine. On one side we have a man with immoral words. On the other side we have a woman whose actions have backed abortion her entire career with now nearly 60 million babies murdered in their mother’s womb, including partial birth abortion which should be called infanticide. (By the way, we have had approximately 120 million births during the same period since 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision. That means we have “legally” killed ONE-THIRD of our future.

Her decisions are responsible for four dead Americans in Bengazi, the embrace of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, the general debacle of Libya, the civil war in Syria, the Russian reset, and the Iran Deal, to name a few of her decisions.

So what’s my point? Do you see any difference between immoral words and immoral policy? If you don’t, stop reading now, I can’t help you. If the Clinton campaign and the media succeed in focusing voters attention on something “shiny” in one hand, they will miss the knife in the other hand.

Political morality is indeed an oxymoron. Let the politician without sin please cast the first stone. Oh, wait! The stones have been flying already for months. Political morality and political hypocrisy are synonyms. The very definition of politics is self-interest. We started with citizen legislators representing their home folks. Now we have political icons. How does one leave the White House broke after being in politics your whole career, and then be a Senator from New York and then the Secretary of State and suddenly be worth over $200,000,000? That’s 200 MILLION DOLLARS! How?

Meanwhile a citizen businessman with a gutter mouth succeeds in business, making billions. Yet, he is “unfit” to be President because of his mouth. I’m sorry, but I am not willing to cast stones.

I have been a Christian pastor my entire life, but even I would shudder to think that some of my past would be broadcast on international news. But, you see, Christians understand the power of the Holy Spirit to change people. I am not what I should be, I am not what I could be, but praise God I am not what I used to be.

Oh, yeah, he is quoted for things he said a decade or two ago. Her actions are consistent to the present: secret server, public positions and private positions, open borders, open trade, globalism and a new world order. No thank you!

I warn all believers to not bite into the apple of self-righteousness. It is a trap laid by a very shrewd and seductive deceiver. We are in a spiritual war that is far larger than Trump or Clinton. Who is pointing America on the right track for the future? (See my posting of the party platforms.)Stop complaining about the poor choices. Your vote is still your most cherished right in this republic. Don’t squander it. The Supreme Court, religious freedoms, and the entire Bill of Rights hang in the balance.

Let me be clear. I am saying that withholding your vote or voting for a third party is not righteous; it is self-righteous. Please be as righteous as you can be through the blood of the Messiah, but don’t use it as an excuse for abdicating your God-given right to cast your vote for the immediate direction of our country.

You may think I am defending Trump, but you would be wrong. Our only hope is the Lord, but I will vote for Trump because the alternative is national suicide, which I will not assist.

Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?” This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear. So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” John 8:5-7

Why Does the World Hate the Jews?

23 10 2015
“When people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You’re talking anti-Semitism..”                                                                                   Martin Luther King, Jr.

“When people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You’re talking anti-Semitism..” Martin Luther King, Jr.

Here is a great short essay on anti-Semitism that I found  on Got while researching for my talk next Tuesday at the ICON Lecture Series in Chapel Hill, NC. I will not have time to go into this part, so decided to share it here. Why do you think the world hates Jews?

Why is anti-Semitism so rampant in so many different nations? What is so bad about the Jews? History has shown that at various times over the last 1,700 years the Jews have been expelled from over 80 different countries. Historians and experts have concluded there are at least six possible reasons:

• Racial Theory – the Jews are hated because they are an inferior race.
• Economic Theory – the Jews are hated because they possess too much wealth and power.
• Outsiders Theory – the Jews are hated because they are different from everyone else.
• Scapegoat Theory – the Jews are hated because they are the cause for all the world’s problems.
• Deicide Theory – the Jews are hated because they killed Jesus Christ.
• Chosen People Theory – the Jews are hated because they arrogantly declare they are the “chosen ones of God.”

Is there any substance to these theories?

With respect to the racial theory, the truth is that the Jews are not a race. Anyone in the world of any color, creed or race can become a Jew.

The economic theory citing that the Jews are wealthy doesn’t hold much weight. History has shown that during the 17th through the 20th centuries, especially in Poland and Russia, the Jews were desperately poor and had very little, if any, influence in business or political systems.

As for the outsiders’ theory, during the 18th century, the Jews desperately tried to assimilate with the rest of Europe. They had hoped that assimilation would cause anti-Semitism to disappear. However, they were hated even more by those who claimed the Jews would infect their race with inferior genes. This was especially true in Germany prior to World War II.

As for the scapegoat theory, the fact is that the Jews have always been hated, which makes them a very convenient target.

As for the idea of deicide, the Bible makes it clear that the Romans were the ones who actually killed Jesus, though the Jews acted as accomplices. It wasn’t until a few hundred years later that the Jews were cited as the murderers of Jesus. One wonders why the Romans are not the ones hated. Jesus Himself forgave the Jews (Luke 23:34). Even the Vatican absolved the Jews of Jesus’ death in 1963. Nevertheless, neither statement has diminished anti-Semitism.

As for their claim to being the “chosen people of God,” the Jews in Germany rejected their “chosen-ness” status during the later part of the 19th century to better assimilate into German culture. Nevertheless, they suffered the Holocaust. Today, some Christians and Muslims claim to be the “chosen people” of God, yet for the most part, the world tolerates them and still hates the Jews.

This brings us to the real reason by the world hates the Jews. The apostle Paul tells us, “For I could wish that I myself were cursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, those of my own race, the people of Israel. Theirs is the adoption as sons; theirs the divine glory, the covenants, the receiving of the law, the temple worship and the promises. Theirs are the patriarchs, and from them is traced the human ancestry of Christ, who is God over all, forever praised!” (Romans 9:3-5). The truth is that the world hates the Jews because the world hates God. The Jews were God’s firstborn, His chosen people (Deuteronomy 14:2). Through the Jewish patriarchs, the prophets, and the temple, God used the Jews to bring forth His Word, the Law, and morality to a world of sin. He sent forth His son, Jesus the Christ, in a Jewish body to redeem the world of sin. Satan, the prince of the earth (John 14:30; Ephesians 2:2), has poisoned the minds of men with his hated of the Jews. See Revelation 12 for an allegorical depiction of Satan’s (the dragon’s) hatred of the Jewish nation (the woman).

Satan has tried to wipe out the Jews through the Babylonians, the Persians, the Assyrians, the Egyptians, the Hittites, and the Nazis. But he’s failed every time. God is not finished with Israel. Romans 11:26 tells us that some day all Israel will be saved, and this cannot come to pass if Israel no longer exists. Therefore, God will preserve the Jews for the future, just as He has preserved their remnant throughout history, until His final plan comes to pass. Nothing can thwart God’s plan for Israel and the Jewish people. (Entire quote here)

Amazon Listing

23 09 2015

Blessing Israel cover photo

ACOP picDoreen and I are personally rejoicing that we finally listed our books on Amazon. All six of my books and all four of Doreen’s are now listed on special author’s pages. We hope you will check them out. The two newest are pictured above. Just click on the image to go to the Amazon page.

My newest book is Blessing Israel: Compelling Biblical Evidence of Zion’s Purpose in God’s Heart. My last book simplified Islam. This one simplifies Zionism. Yehovah God is the #1 Zionist. What is His heart? He has a Plan and this book explains it from His heart. It contrasts man’s political and demonic propaganda against the heart of God. To resist Zion is to resist God. Confusion about Zion leaves one impotent to stand with Israel. Blessing Israel defines Biblical Zionism, leading to the logical conclusion for the reader: “I, too, am a Zionist!”

My second newest is Simple Islam: Irreconcilable Differences Between the Bible and Islam. Contrary to majority opinion, we do not all worship the same God. Christians and Jews worship Yehovah, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Clearly identified as a Father in the Bible, He also has a Son. Who has ascended into heaven, or descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? 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 Islam, by contrast, adamantly denies their god is a father or has a son. The Jesus of the Quran is not the Son of God, and did not die. The aim of Simple Islam is to clear the chatter that confuses the issue.

Doreen’s brand new book, A Change of Plans, just arrived today. It is Book 4 in her Jewish Roots for Children Series. It completes the story of Matt, a young Christian, and Rachel, his Jewish best friend. Together they have learned about the Bible Feasts of the LORD (Yehovah). You will really enjoy the exciting end of their story. Doreen did a great job! (Of course, I am a completely impartial literary critic.)

Here are links to our sites on Amazon:

Christian Zionists Arising

3 09 2015

Blessing Israel cover photoThe institutional church is plunging into apostasy, rejecting the Bible as literal and embracing immorality. We are fast approaching the moment when true believers are seeing the importance of Christian Zionism. I have just received my newest book, Blessing Israel, from the publisher, which is on this very subject.

The key text for the book is this classic from Genesis.

Now Yehovah had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” Genesis 12:1-3
Doreen and I had a wonderful experience in July with 6,000 other Zionists at the Christians United For Israel Summit in Washington, DC. CUFI now has over 2.2 million members. I continue to speak wherever I have an open door, encouraging Christians to recognize their roots in Zion, the heart of God.
This Christian Zionist phenomena is also rising in other nations. Check out this story from the UK.

(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!

Goliath’s Four Brothers

19 08 2015

EV Israel Trip 2015 473Goliath’s Humongous Gate Found

We visited the stream where David picked up five smooth stones to slay Goliath when we were in Israel in February. A huge gate was found in the area at the site of Gath, Goliath’s home town. I even picked up a couple of stones myself while there with our tour group. For years I have said the reason David picked up five stones was because Goliath had four brothers. Israel Today Magazine has a great story about it. Here is sample quotation followed by a link to the rest of the story.

The gate of the Philistine city Gath was so impressive that it received mention in I Samuel 21 in the story of David’s escape from King Saul to Achish, king of Gath.

Gath is one of the largest tells or ancient ruin mounds in Israel and was settled almost continuously from the 5th millennium BCE until modern times.

We know that Goliath had four giant brothers called “Lords of the Philistines” in Joshua 13:3. When David goes out to meet the humongous warrior of Gath he knows that he will also need to deal with his oversized brothers. Indeed, the other four Philistine giants eventually do show up in II Samuel 21:22 only to be defeated by David and his men.

David understood that in order to achieve full victory, Israel must cast out all the giants from the land. You cannot deal with just one stronghold (or sin), but must be prepared to go all the way. Better not to cast that first stone only to discover we are in a battle for which we are not prepared. Israel Today

The writer makes a great point in the last paragraph. We face many giants in our world today, and they are enemies. Make sure you stand in God’s strength and do not lean on the flesh, but stand in the power of the Holy Spirit. We need to prepare for battle. This is serious, but if we stay in Jesus, we win!

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. Ephesians 6:10-13 NLT

What War? Christian Zionists Help

At a time when some visitors to Israel have been rethinking their travel plans to Israel in light of ongoing hostilities with Gazan terror groups, some 500 Christian volunteers will be traveling to the Jewish state to support farmers in Judea and Samaria this summer – and they say they’re coming no matter what.

Members of the HaYovel organization say that far from making them reconsider their yearly plans to help farmers work their land, the war has left them more committed than ever to supporting Israeli farmers at such a difficult time. Israel National News

Iran’s Rouhani: ‘WorldPowers Surrendered to Iranian Nation’s Will’ the weekly Standard

Iran’s Rouhani casts nuke deal as win for nation U-T San Diego

New Iran agreement includes secret side deal, Tehran official says LA Times

What could possible go wrong? President Obama leads the surrender using the old Viet Nam War era slogan: Give Peace A Chance.

Meanwhile, guess what Iran’s Foreign Minister and Chief Negotiator did on his way home from the Geneva signing ceremony today? He stopped off in Beirut, Lebanon to lay a wreath on the grave of the terrorist mastermind behind the 1983 massacre of 241 American servicemen: 220 Marines, 18 sailors and three soldiers. (see: “Search for perpetrators” halfway down this article). How can we be so blind?

All along, of course, Iran has just been stalling and stonewalling to simply buy more time in their relentless quest for nuclear weapons. They have been caught lying many times. Iran’s President Rouhani even bragged about his prowess in deceiving the West in a video tape released in 2013, and an interview in 2006: How we duped the West.

TAQIYYA: The Islamic Doctrine of Lying

The fact that they say what we want to hear is actually a doctrine of lying called taqiyya. They are instructed that lying is a righteous way to achieve a desired effect for the advance of Islam and they will be rewarded for their “successful” lie. If you understand that this is true, it is a lot easier to understand their love of the Western media. They just tell us what we want to hear while going about their secretive purposes. Exerpt from Chapter Two of my newest book: SIMPLE ISLAM

Contrast this with Jesus’ words: Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6

Islamists in Proverbs

9 12 2013

Today I submit four remarkably descriptive verses from Proverbs exposing the character of radical Islam. Do you agree? Of course this section is a warning for all of us, but seems so accurate of the demonic spirit that threatens the world.

The only hope for Muslims and for all of us is the Messiah Jesus. He is the only one who can deliver us from evil. He is the Son of God, our Savior: Yeshua ben Yehovah!

These six things Yehovah hates, yes, seven are an abomination to Him: ​​A proud look, ​​A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, ​​A heart that devises wicked plans, ​​Feet that are swift in running to evil, ​​A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren. Proverbs 6:16-19

Simple Islam front coverRather than condemning these traits, Islamists praise and honor their “martyrs” who succeed in killing infidels using these very methods. Think about the seven abominations one by one. Do they not coincide with radical Islam?

Again I say, the only hope for Muslims and for all of us is the Messiah Jesus. He is the only one who can deliver us from evil. He is the Son of God, our Savior: Yeshua ben Yehovah!

Israel: God’s Glory

4 12 2013

I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory. Isaiah 46:13

What a wonderful way for God to display His power and glory, by redeeming banished Israel back to their land and their God! Embracing the literal restoration of Israel is pivotal to understanding God’s glory. My first book, Prophesy To the Land! was a literal reading of Ezekiel 36. Since then I have proven over and over the maxim learned from several mentors: “If you can possibly take a passage literally, do so.”

GloryOverIsraelGod’s glory is revealed in the awesome story of Israel. After the leaders of Israel refused Jesus as Messiah, and were banished from the land to wander the world, many concluded that Israel was replaced by the church in God’s salvation plan. However, that mistake (seemingly confirmed by the Holocaust) was blown away when God began to favor Israel on God’s own timetable:

You will arise and have mercy on Zion; For the time to favor her, Yes, the set time, has come. Psalm 102:13

I love to preach Psalm 102 which I call the “Holocaust Psalm.” Before Israel became a nation, one could claim that her judgment was permanent. However, since 1948, God has poured out blessing and favor for 65 years. The exiles have returned (and are returning), Jerusalem is back under Israeli sovereignty, God has miraculously protected and delivered them in multiple wars, and He has blessed them with massive newly discovered natural resources and technology. ​Trillions of cubic feet of natural gas are now flowing into Israel from vast fields offshore in the Mediterranean Sea.

Then you shall see and become radiant,​​ and your heart shall swell with joy; because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, the wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you. Isaiah 60:5

Also consider that “Approximately 20 percent or 1 in 5 of Nobel Prize laureates are Jews, yet Jews make up less than 0.2 percent of the world’s population.” (Israel Today) FAVOR!

Finally, consider this recent headline: Netanyahu: Iran is the Darkness, We’re the Light: “We have come to banish the darkness and the greatest darkness that threatens the world today is that of a nuclear Iran,” he said. “We are committed to doing whatever we can to prevent this darkness. If possible, it would be preferable to do so by diplomatic means and if not we will serve as a light to the nations.”

While the world succumbs to the dark scourge of radical Islam, Israel is shining brighter and brighter. And as I said in my previous blog, “Those who bless Israel will be blessed, and those who curse Israel will be cursed.” As for me and my house, we will serve Yehovah, God of Israel, and His eternal covenant purpose to bless Israel.

Remember the former things of old, for I am God, and there is no other; ​​I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure,’ calling a bird of prey from the east, the man who executes My counsel, from a far country. ​​Indeed I have spoken it; ​​I will also bring it to pass. ​​I have purposed it; ​​I will also do it. ​​Listen to Me, you stubborn-hearted, who are far from righteousness: ​​I bring My righteousness near, it shall not be far off; ​​My salvation shall not linger. ​​And I will place salvation in Zion, for Israel My glory. Isaiah 46:9-13

Don’t forget that the word salvation in verse 13 above is Yeshua, the Hebrew word for Jesus. Jesus is the “salvation” placed in Zion for Israel.

And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn. Zechariah 12:10

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

The Israelis Are At It Again!

1. Scientists in Israel found that the brackish water, drilled from underground desert aquifers hundreds of feet deep, could be used to raise warm-water fish. The geothermal water, less than one-tenth as saline as sea water, free of pollutants, and a toasty 98 degrees on average, proves an ideal environment..

2. Israeli-developed designer-eyeglasses, promise mobile phone and iPod users, a personalized, high-tech video display. Available to US consumers next year, Lumus-Optical’s lightweight and fashionable video eyeglasses, feature a large transparent screen, floating in front of the viewer’s face that projects their choice of movie, TV show, or video game.

3. When Stephen Hawkings recently visited Israel , he shared his wisdom with scientists, students, and even the Prime Minister. But the world’s most renowned victim of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s disease, also learned something, due to the Israeli Association for ALS’ advanced work in both embryonic and adult stem cell research, as well as its proven track record with neurodegenerative diseases. The Israeli research community is well on its way to finding a treatment for this fatal disease, which affects 30,000 Americans.

4. Israeli start -up, Veterix, has developed an innovative new electronic capsule that sits in the stomach of a cow, sheep, or goat, sending out real-time information on the health of the herd, to the farmer via email or cell phone. The e-capsule, which also sends out alerts if animals are distressed, injured, or lost is now being tested on a herd of cows, in the hopes that the device will lead to tastier and healthier meat and milk supplies.

5. The millions of Skype users worldwide will soon have access to the newly developed KishKish lie-detector. This free Internet service, based on voice stress analysis (a technique, commonly used in criminal investigations) will be able to measure just how truthful that person on the other end of the line, really is.

6. Beating cardiac tissue has been created in a lab from human embryonic stem cells by researchers at the Rappaport Medical Faculty and the Technion – Israeli institute of Technology ‘s biomedical Engineering facility. The work of Dr. Shulamit Levenberg and Prof. Lior Gepstein, has also led to the creation of tiny blood vessels within the tissue, making possible its implantation in a human heart.

7. Israel’s Magal Security Systems, is a worldwide leader in computerized security systems, with products used in more than 70 countries around the world, protecting anything from national borders, to nuclear facilities, refineries, and airports. The company’s latest Product, DreamBox, a state-of-the-art security system that includes Intelligent video, audio and sensor management, is now being used by a major water authority on the US east coast to safeguard the utility’s sites.

8. It is common knowledge that dogs have better night vision than humans and a vastly superior sense of smell and hearing. Israel ‘s Bio-Sense Technologies recently delved further and electronically analyzed 350 different barks. Finding that dogs of all breeds and sizes, bark the same alarm when they sense a threat, the firm has designed the dog bark-reader, a sensor that can pick up a dog’s alarm bark, and alert the human operators. This is just one of a batch of innovative security systems to emerge from Israel which Forbes calls ‘the go-to country for anti-terrorism technologies.’

9. Israeli company, BioControl Medical, sold its first electrical stimulator to treat urinary incontinence to a US company for $50 Million. Now, it is working on CardioFit, which uses electrical nerve stimulation to treat congestive heart failure. With nearly five million Americans presently affected by heart failure, and more than 400,000 new cases diagnosed yearly, the CardioFit is already generating a great deal of excitement as the first device with the potential to halt this deadly disease.

10. One year after Norway’s Socialist Left Party launched its Boycott Israel campaign, the importing of Israeli goods has increased by 15%, the strongest increase in many years, statistics Norway reports. (author unknown)

A Dry Bones Humor Break

Finally, let me add a dose of sober reality from the real judge of Syria and His viewpoint.

Woe to you who plunder, though you have not been plundered;
And you who deal treacherously, though they have not dealt treacherously with you!
When you cease plundering,
You will be plundered;
When you make an end of dealing treacherously,
They will deal treacherously with you. Isaiah 33:1

The burden against Damascus. “Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city,
And it will be a ruinous heap.” Isaiah 17:1 (Also see Jeremiah 49:23-27)

800+ Dead in Egypt

17 08 2013

Egypt police truckThis is just a quick reminder that Yehovah God is on the throne. Nearly a thousand dead in three days by some estimates and over a thousand by others. The army gives lower numbers than the Muslim Brotherhood. Yet, Isaiah 19 still describes exactly what is happening.

For the past year it looked like Morsi would be the “cruel master” and “fierce king”. Now, it is looking more like General Sissi is the one.

And the Egyptians I will give Into the hand of a cruel master, And a fierce king will rule over them,” Says the Lord, Yehovah of hosts. Isaiah 19:4

The General, called the “new king of Egypt” by the Jerusalem Post, has cracked down in a few weeks with much more force than Morsi had in a year. Here is excellent analysis from The Times of Israel.

el-SissiEl-Sissi will not be deterred The heavy use of force by Egyptian police has reignited Muslim Brotherhood protests and brought criticism at home and abroad. But the strongman is unmoved, and much of Egypt is with him. (Read the article at this link.)

Two collateral effects of this brewing Egyptian civil war are the damage to the Christians of Egypt and the treaty with Israel. Over 40 churches were burned in the last three days. Here is the latest list from Jihad Watch.

Israel is watching closely to see the implications for the treaty in a “delicate balancing act”.

We must pray faithfully for the Christians of Egypt and other Muslim countries.

We must pray faithfully for the salvation of Muslims. AND…

We must pray faithfully for peace, protection and continued blessing of Yehovah on His beloved Israel.

(Here is a link to my previous posts about Egypt and Isaiah 19.)

We’ve Come This Far by Faith

20 06 2013

383006-R1-18-18_019 - CopyI met my wife, Doreen, in Bible College in the ’60s beginning a life of faith together in marriage June 11, 1967. That date may ring a bell for you. It was the end of the miraculous Six Day War, Israel’s amazing victory. My life verse came into focus in those days from the book of Hebrews’ epic “faith chapter”.

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6

Faith has two necessary parts. Until then, I thought it was enough to believe in God. Yet, this verse declares more; extending faith’s definition. Faith requires believing that God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. This is God’s character. He rewards our pursuit of Him. If you don’t believe that, you simply do not have Biblical faith. The rest of Hebrews 11 is a profound testimonial to the point. Another verse confirms that believing “in” God is not enough. Demons know God exists, but that certainly does not save them!

You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe–and tremble! But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead? James 2:19-20

The “works” of faith spoken here is not good deeds, but the second part of faith: GOD IS A REWARDER!

Back at Berkshire Christian College, our favorite chorus had these words: We’ve come this far by faith, leaning on the Lord. Trusting in His Holy Word, we’ve come this far by faith, woe-oh-o-oh, woe-oh-o-oh, shadows around me, we’ve come this far by faith.

If you have read any of my five published books, you know I end every chapter with the phrase: GOD IS FAITHFUL! Let me explain why I do that. We do not only believe in God’s existence, we believe in His fully demonstrated character to respond to the cry of any person looking for Him. That character trait distinguishes Yehovah, the God of the Bible (of both Christians and Jews), from all false gods, pretenders and usurpers.

I challenge you to put Him to the test. No matter what you are going through, He is there. He will respond. Call to Him. He is faithful, even when we are not.

As we pray for Israel, we need to apply our faith. We also need to pray for their faith, surrounded by hostile enemies with some flying the Palestinian flag in the midst of God’s land. Pray that Israeli leaders and people will call on the name of the living God for their deliverance from those who would drive them into the sea.

Syria: the Shia/Sunni War

8 06 2013

Hezbollah1-266x200The “uncivil” civil war in Syria is clearly breaking down along Shia and Sunni lines. This is the latest in battles among fellow Muslims that go back nearly 1,500 years to the very beginnings of Islam. After Mohammed died, Islam’s first division was a fight for control between Shiite Muslims and Sunni Muslims. Today’s fighting has left 120,000 Syrians dead with 1.5 million refugees. Yet it is the same division of Muslims. Some believe another 100,000 could die in the next year alone. Hezbollah has openly joined with the Shia government of Bashar Assad. Consider this update from Israel National News (6-7-2-13).

The split between Shiites and Sunnis is deepening and the war in Syria is threatening the rest of the Muslim world. The rebels belong to Sunni Islam while the regime is Alawite, a branch of Shiism supported by Iran and assisted by fighters from the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, units from the Shiite group Hizbullah and Shiite volunteers from Iraq.

Rebels in Deir ez-Zor proclaimed war against the Shiites following their defeat in the battle in Al-Qusayr. In a video posted to YouTube they announce the launch of a sectarian war, while chanting “Death to the Shia” and recalling the 637 The Battle of al-Qadisiyyah, when Muslim Arab forces defeated the Persians.

It is a fact that Muslims have killed more Muslims since 9/11 than infidels. Yet, the God of Israel loves Muslims and desires that they be saved. Here is an excerpt from my new book, SIMPLE ISLAM:

Simple Islam front coverThe most important point of this entire book is that Jesus died for Muslims. God loves Muslims along with the whole world. Muslims are people. Islam is the religious/political system that enslaves them. We love the Muslim people, but reject Islam. From its inception it has had a violent and bloody history. It started with Muhammad’s murders of many. Then, when he died, there began a series of bloody battles that produced the first major split of Islam into the two largest “denominations” of Sunni and Shia. History provides context for today’s advance of Islam.

While we are at war with the system of Islam, we can love Muslims to life in Jesus. My hope is that this book will clarify this path. The Bible is clear that Yehovah will judge the wicked, but His heart is to show mercy to all who turn (repent) from their wickedness.

The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent. 2 Peter 3:9 NLT END OF EXCERPT

Yehovah Rides into Egypt

3 05 2013

Arab SpringWe have been talking about the Arab Spring since 2011. Isaiah 19 is the prophetic description of an eight step time line of events that is now in step four. Today I will share a brief overview of those eight steps, but you need to read Isaiah 19 for yourself to get the full impact.

1. Yehovah Rides. It is God Himself who is bringing Egypt to its knees (verse 1)

2. Egyptians against Egyptians. Civil war and revolution. (verse 2)

3. Failure across the board. Tourism, economy, courts, crops, government. (verse 3)

We are now in the beginning of Step 4.

4. Cruel master/fierce king. New leader (Morsi) will be merciless, especially to Christians. (verse 4)

​And the Egyptians I will give into the hand of a cruel master, and a fierce king will rule over them,”

​​Says the Lord, Yehovah of hosts.

5. Nile River withers and dries up bring utter calamity. (verses 5-13)

6. Perverse spirit mingled in by Yehovah. (verse 14)

Yehovah has mingled a perverse spirit in her midst; and they have caused Egypt to err in all her work,

​​As a drunken man staggers in his vomit.

7. Fear and terror from hand of Yehovah. They will be terrified of the Jews and Israel. (verses 16-17)

8. NEW BEGINNINGS! Egypt will turn to Yehovah God of Israel and Yeshua (Jesus) the Savior. Salvation, deliverance and a merging with Israel and Syria in peace. (verses 18-25)

The Day the Language Died

8 04 2013

Look closely at the attached picture of a Power Point slide from an US Army/Pentagon Army Reserve training presentation. Notice that every flag except one is Islamic (one is Jewish). Now notice the list. The first one on the list, Evangelical Christianity in the US. The third is ultra-orthodox Judaism. Later on down we find Catholicism, US.

Watch list

The incident occurred during an Army Reserve Equal Opportunity training brief on extremism. (Update 4-17-13: A spokesman for the Army acknowledged the incident but denied it was Army policy. Army spokesman George Wright later said it was an isolated incident not condoned by the Dept. of the Army. And the slide, he said, was not produced by the Army nor did it reflect their policy or doctrine.)

This is the politically manipulative and ridiculous nonsense that has replaced truthful information about Islam and jihad. And the implications of it are quite ominous. Evangelical Christianity, Catholicism and “Islamophobia” are forms of “Religion Extremism” on par with al-Qaeda and Hamas? Then how long will it be before the Obama Administration goes to war against them, as it has repeatedly declared that it is at war with al-Qaeda?

Islamophobia is extremism? Consider the conclusive statistics in this article. Not a Single Muslim Has Died Due to Islamophobia: As the usual voices fault “our oversaturated Islamophobic environment” and “growing anti-Muslim hate,” they neglect to mention how rare it is for an actual or perceived Muslim to die in a hate crime. By the FBI’s count, 74 people were killed in hate crimes (“murder and nonnegligent manslaughter” in Table 4) from 2002 to 2011, but not a single one in an anti-Muslim incident. Indeed, the FBI lists no anti-Muslim fatalities since 1995, corresponding to the earliest report available.

Watch list 2

I see this as the death of our language. Words no longer mean what the dictionary says they mean. Even the definition of “extremist organizations” in a later slide in the same Army Reserve training cannot possible be applied with such a broad brush condemnation. Literally hundreds of millions of Catholics and evangelical Christians fall into this ridiculous list. However, it is worse than ridiculous, because this redefinition is intentional and it is well under way.

I don’t have enough space to detail the redefinition of “patriot”. But take the time to read this recent Editorial in the LA Times. For 250 years patriots have been held up as heroes of liberty. Now the term is un-righteously sullied by perverting language, and in a major newspaper. SHAME! The Editorial ends with this dire warning against “patriot groups”. These groups should be closely monitored, with resources adequate to the task, even if it means shifting some homeland security money from the hunt for foreign terrorists. Are you kidding me? I am not making this up. Take money from hunting foreign terrorists to hunt for patriots! Insanity.

Justice is turned back, And righteousness stands afar off; For truth is fallen in the street, And equity cannot enter. Isaiah 59:14

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. Philippians 4:8

The “New Pharaoh” Principle

2 01 2013

Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara host rabbis and scholars at their home for a Bible study session in October (photo credit: Marc Israel Sellem/Flash90)

Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. Exodus 1:8

During Israel’s 400 years in Egypt they transitioned from great favor under Joseph as Pharaoh’s second in command. Eventually their expanding population threatened a new Pharaoh and he made them slaves. This is a prophetic picture of modern Israel’s circumstances. I call it the “New Pharaoh” principle.

Prime Minister Netanyahu quoted this text on New Year’s Day during his weekly Bible study. It came up in the regular Torah portion Bible reading for Jews everywhere. I was impressed with his insight into the prophetic application. He saw the threat from Egypt’s Morsi who replaced Mubarak; and he applied it also to the Hamas threat over the West Bank.

In this week’s Torah portion it is written, “Now there arose a new king over Egypt who knew not Joseph.” That’s also happening today,” he said from his Jerusalem residence, referring to the Islamist president, Mohammed Morsi, who replaced Hosni Mubarak as Egypt’s leader last year. Everyone knows that Hamas could take over the Palestinian Authority. Benjamin Netanyahu 1-1-13

It is so wonderful to hear a head of state not merely use Scripture for image, but as the support for his political position. Hamas really is a threat to take over the Palestinian “state” in the West Bank. The Prime Minister continued:

As opposed to the voices that I have heard recently urging me to run forward, make concessions, withdraw [from the West Bank], I think that the diplomatic process must be managed responsibly and sagaciously and not in undue haste. Otherwise a third base for Iranian terrorism will arise here, in the heart of the country. Peace can be achieved only when security is assured. (ibid)

This principle has applied several times already in the so-called peace process. When Israel withdrew from Lebanon, Hezbollah took over control. When Israel withdrew from Gaza, the Palestinian Authority was soon overthrown by Hamas. The same scenario has now played out in Egypt. and is certain to result in Syria and even Jordan before we are through.

Application of Israeli SovereigntyTherefore, Netanyahu is wise to consider possible future changes when “negotiating” with Abbas. The corrupt PA will be replaced by Hamas in a short time. There is a growing move in Israel to simply annex Judea and Samaria (the West Bank). A Jerusalem conference is considering this concept this week.

Please keep the “New Pharaoh” principle in mind as you pray for Israel and real peace for Jerusalem.

Will Israel Stand Alone?

27 12 2012

Dry Bones Prophecy D12C23_3Monday, I explained that the enemies of Israel in reality hate God. They can’t reach Heaven so they attack His Chosen Ones. There is a primary evil spirit loose on the earth of satan himself, who would overthrow the God of Heaven. This anti-Christ anti-Messiah spirit takes form as anti-Jew, anti-Israel, anti-Semitic and anti-life. It is the same violent principality that was judged by Yehovah in the great flood of Noah’s day. The Hebrew word for violence in the flood account is “hamas“. Used many times in the Bible, it is no coincidence that the rulers of Gaza chose that name. Yet, the spirit of hamas indwells all of Israel’s enemies.

The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth. And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Genesis 6:11-13

Here an example list (links) of this spirit increasingly breaking out in many places recently.

If you have a little extra time over the weekend, please click these links. Remember, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Please pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

240 Rockets = Pillar of Cloud

14 11 2012

More than 240 rockets from Gaza landed in Israel since Saturday prompting today’s Israeli Operation Pillar of Cloud. It is likely only the beginning of a much wider conflict and possibly war. Depending on the next round of reprisals from Hamas, this could expand to include Hezbollah from Lebanon, Syria and even Egypt. Once again we are on the precipice of the Psalm 83 War.

Over 160 rocket fell in four days and then 80 more today in Israel. Enough is enough! What country on earth would stand by while under such an unrelenting attack? Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says
“those who think they can disrupt life in the south and get away with it are mistaken.” (Update: Now over 400 rockets in six days since Saturday.)

Update #2 Click this link for a live thread detailing today’s events.

Today Israel took out “number one “on their Most Wanted Terrorist list. Ahmed Jabari was the head of the Hamas military wing. He was successfully targeted by an Israeli missile this morning. Pray for wisdom from Yehovah, God of Israel and His Son, Yeshua ben Yehovah.

And the Angel of God, who went before the camp of Israel, moved and went behind them; and the pillar of cloud went from before them and stood behind them. So it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel. – Now it came to pass, in the morning watch, that Yehovah looked down upon the army of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and cloud, and He troubled the army of the Egyptians. Exodus 14:19-20, 24

And they will tell it to the inhabitants of this land. They have heard that You, Yehovah, are among these people; that You, Yehovah, are seen face to face and Your cloud stands above them, and You go before them in a pillar of cloud by day and in a pillar of fire by night. Numbers 14:14

And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will. 2 Timothy 2:24-26

William Shakespeare learned while writing his tragedies that some people would laugh at a death scene unless preceded by a silly jester. So today, it is sometimes easier to make a point of truth in the context of humor. That is why my favorite cartoonist is Israeli Yaakov Kirschen. He has drawn the Dry Bones cartoons for 40 years (in January 2013. Thank you Mr. Kirschen. This cartoon is confirmed by the following quote from Mahmoud Abbas, the head of the Palestinian Authority.

I Must Tell Jesus

24 09 2012
I Must Tell Jesus | Elisha A. Hoffman
  1. I must tell Jesus all of my trials,
    I cannot bear these burdens alone;
    In my distress He kindly will help me,
    He ever loves and cares for His own.

    • Refrain:
      I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus!
      I cannot bear my burdens alone;
      I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus!
      Jesus can help me, Jesus alone.
  2. I must tell Jesus all of my troubles,
    He is a kind, compassionate Friend;
    If I but ask Him He will deliver,
    Make of my troubles quickly an end.
  3. Tempted and tried I need a great Savior,
    One who can help my burdens to bear;
    I must tell Jesus, I must tell Jesus:
    He all my cares and sorrows will share.
  4. What must I do when worldliness calls me?
    What must I do when tempted to sin?
    I must tell Jesus, and He will help me
    Over the world the vict’ry to win.

Today I offer a little refreshing reminder that God is faithful and He is always with us.

For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrew 13:5

Shaking Hands with the Devil?

2 09 2012

(The following comments are from Barry Segal of Vision For Israel from his newsletter.)

Press photos of the UN chief shaking hands with Ahmadinejad and smiling into the camera are somewhat reminiscent of British PM Neville Chamberlain meeting and shaking hands with Adolf Hitler in Germany on September 22, 1938. This was eight days before Chamberlain’s famous arrival in Britain claiming peace had been won with the German dictator. The purpose of the meeting was to debate Hitler’s takeover of Czechoslovakia’s Sudetenland. Chamberlain mistakenly believed Hitler was only concerned with the Sudetenland and that war could be averted by giving in to the dictator’s demands. The former British prime minister is now remembered as the man who tried to avert war through “appeasement” that is, pandering to Hitler’s demands for more territory in Europe.

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” Isaiah 5:20 (Guest post from Barry Segal, JNN NEWS)

Voting for Israel

18 08 2012

Many believers manage to suspend their principles when they step into the voting booth. This is wrong. We must vote the Bible. I vote pro-life. I vote pro Biblical marriage. And an uppermost criteria…I vote Israel. It must be stated that many Democrats are pro-Israel, but in this year’s presidential ballot there is a stark contrast.

President Obama speaks some good things about Israel, but his actions have been the opposite. We cannot judge by words. He has alienated our best friends in the Middle East, while directly encouraging the Muslim Brotherhood, who are sweeping into power throughout the region.

Meanwhile, a highly respected annual list in Israel names the most pro-Israel non-Jewish leaders in the world. Topping the 2012 listing was Mitt Romney, the US Presidential Candidate:

Love or hate his politics, Romney’s vocal support for Israel as a contender for the world’s top job, has challenged the incumbent and many Americans to rediscover their own understanding of the United States’ special relationship with the Jewish state.

His tough stance on Iran has put the Ayatollahs on notice.  In his recent trip to the Holy Land, he acknowledged Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and cited the historic connection of the Jewish people with the land, which has gone a long way in underlining the Jewish narrative regarding Israel on the world stage, thereby earning him the top spot this year.  the algemeiner

Following Romney on the list are Rupert Murdoch, CEO of News Corp, Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada, and Manmohan Singh, Prime Minister of India.

Romney’s declaration of Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital challenged the diplomatic world which refuses to recognize the obvious. This weekend Romney again spoke against the diplomatic tide: U.S. presidential hopeful Mitt Romney blasts Obama on Iran, says America must lead the world in stopping ‘genocidal regime.’ Speaking after Ahmadinejad called Israel a “cancerous tumor that must be excised,” he said Obama had failed to prevent Iran from moving forward with its nuclear program. “America must lead the world in stopping Iran’s genocidal regime from obtaining a nuclear weapons capability,” he declared. His running mate Congressman Ryan said, “Under President Romney our adversaries will think twice about challenging America and our allies because we believe in peace through strength. There will be no daylight between America and our friends around the world.”

Vice Presidential Candidate, Paul Ryan, has long been considered pro-Israel:  America has no better friend in the Middle East than the nation of Israel. Not only is Israel the region’s only fully functioning democracy, with a government based on popular consent and the rule of law, but it is also a valuable ally against Islamic extremism and terrorism. He’s been the co-sponsor of no less than 5 pro-Israel bills and resolutions, and puts the issue “Israel” under the category “Homeland Security” on his Congressional website.

If you still struggle to justify voting please consider the Biblical counsel to “give unto Caesar” and to act on our faith. This is not a time to vote “present”, it is time to wake up, stand up, speak up and vote the Bible!

And He said to them, “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” Matthew 22:21

But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.  James 2:18

The Voters Are Coming!

4 07 2012

Taxed Enough Already = TEA Party

Today’s Tea Party movement is the contemporary revival of the signal cause of the American Revolution. The original Boston Tea Party was a protest over an unfair tax on tea levied by the British on the fledgling American Colonies which eventually led to the Declaration of Independence. One of the most famous quotations of the era was “No taxation without representation.” It is ironic that nearly 240 years later that the largest set of taxes in history are to be levied through The Affordable Health Care Act, aka Obamacare. Also, it was enacted without having been read and with ignorance of its provisions.

REPLACE AND REPEAL – Following the disappointing ruling of the Supreme Court, the remaining remedy to avoid this catastrophic tax is to replace the government. Before we can repeal the law and replace it with a better plan (as in the Romney slogan: “Repeal and Replace”) we must first replace the Senators who were for it and elect a new President. My appeal is to all patriotic citizens to rise up now to aid our country’s liberty, regardless of your faith or political party.

Secondly, I appeal to Christians. There are some political issues that I may hold my nose and support out of party loyalty or ideology. However, there are certain red lines that violate my Biblical faith. I appeal to Christians to bring God into the voting booth, because our nation’s liberty is on the line.

1. I will not vote for one who opposes Israel.

2. I will not vote for one who supports abortion (see NOTE below.)

3. I will not vote for one who supports infanticide.

4. I will not vote for one who dismisses the Biblical view of homosexuality.

5. I will not vote for a liar, whether in campaigning or in autobiography.

6. I will not vote for one who violates the First Amendment (freedom of religion).

Finally, every vote counts. North Carolina was carried by Obama in 2008 by only 14,177 votes. It is time for Christians with a Biblical world view to stand up and vote. But before that, register. Some are not even registered! Please help encourage your family and neighbors to vote this November. It is time for Biblical believers to wake up, stand up and speak up for Godly leadership. We in America live in a representative republic, which means our actions (or inaction) affects our leadership. We must vote and pray!

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus. 1 Timothy 2:1-5

Nakba Day Fizzles Again

15 05 2012

Today was the annual day the Palestinians observe Nakba Day, “the Catastrophe” which is how they refer to Israel becoming a state on this date in 1948. While dozens of Palestinians and four Israeli soldiers were lightly injured, overall it was not much of a protest.

A combination of IDF readiness and a weary and fractured Palestinian public helped ensure the day passed with relatively few clashes. Times of Israel (Nakba Day Defanged)

In addition in the same report, a Palestinian human rights worker named Bassem Eid, attributed the relative calm to the state of Palestinian society, which he described as frustrated, fractured, tired and hopeless. “The back of Palestinian society has been broken by the Hamas-Fatah separation,” he said, noting that within the West Bank, a region he referred to as “Fatahstan,” the rifts within Fatah were so deep there was no hope of any coördinated uprising. “There cannot be an intifada so long as we have an intrafada,” he said.

Meanwhile, Yaachov Kirschen, the Dry Bones cartoonist, made a great point with his cartoon and commentary about a Nakba observance at Tel Aviv University. His comparison to US universities each accepting millions of dollars from Saudi Arabia to endow Muslim Professors on campuses across this country is a sober reminder. Islam intends to rule the planet and as the cliché goes: “They are in it, to win it.”

Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man. Luke 21:36

Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. 1 Thessalonians 5:6

Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you. Revelation 3:3

Israel Shocker

7 05 2012

Late tonight (early Tuesday Israel time)PM Benjamin Netanyahu reversed course and canceled the just announced plan for early elections. Totally surprising everybody, he made a deal with Kadima, the opposition party to form a new coalition. The prime benefit of the arrangement is that Israel is now unified to deal with Iran.

Kadima, in party elections, had dumped Tzipi Livni, the outspoken liberal critic of the Prime Minister. It is now a whole new ball game in Israel. One benefit is that Israel will now be stronger resisting the leftist pressure coming from the US President Obama and his Administration.

Shortly after 2:30 a.m., Netanyahu and Mofaz arrived at the Knesset to brief their parties of the details of their agreement. Kadima joined the government in exchange for Mofaz’s appointment as a deputy prime minister, a minister without portfolio, and a cabinet member.

Additionally, the government will propose a replacement for the Tal Law on national service for the ultra-Orthodox, which is set to expire in August. There will be legislation on electoral reform, and the budget will be passed smoothly, the two agreed. Mofaz said that in the coming year Kadima will receive additional ministerial positions. Both parties have agreed that the 18th Knesset will complete its term and elections will be held on schedule in late 2013. (The Times of Israel)

Kadima, that unreliable, hard-to-define centrist faction looked to be disintegrating. The Netanyahu-Mofaz deal changes all that. And the anger on the left is only part of the reason for the pleasure Netanyahu must be feeling at what he and his supporters will doubtless depict as a political masterstroke. (David Horovitz)

These radical developments certainly call for passionate prayer for supporters of Biblical prophecy unfolding before our eyes in Israel. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. We ask Yehovah, the God of Israel to bless and favor Israel according to His covenant promise. We also pray for the revelation of Yehovah ben Yeshua, Jesus Son of God, to Jews everywhere and to all nations.

Jordan On the Brink

18 04 2012

Jordan has banned the Muslim Brotherhood in the Kingdom as a political party. The King is also trying to forge a separation between Jordanians and Palestinians. Psalm 83 comes into sharper focus with Jordan’s latest moves. King Abdullah II is feeling the heat of the Arab Spring. After maintaining a low profile in the year since the Arab Spring blossomed and then exploded in the Middle East, Jordan is now in the cross-hairs of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Jordanian Parliament did not ban the MB by name, but banned all political parties based on religion. This shrewd move cuts off the method of using a different name for the party as the Muslim Brotherhood did in Egypt, naming themselves the “Freedom and Justice Party”. In Gaza, the offshoot slowly became Hamas.

Some 70% of Jordan’s citizens are Palestinians, complicating the King’s dilemna. “In a surprise move, Jordan has decided to revoke the Jordanian citizenship of Palestinian Authority and PLO officials, sources in Amman disclosed Wednesday.” Will the Palestinian flag fly over Jordan?

In 2009, Amman quietly began revoking the Jordanian citizenship of thousands of Palestinians, triggering strong protests from human rights organizations and pro-Palestinian groups around the world. Over the past year, Jordan has witnessed increased demands for reforms and democracy. The “Arab Spring” that has been sweeping the Arab world has prompted thousands of Jordanians to take to the streets every week to demand real changes and freedoms. (Jerusalem Post)

Psalm 83 lists the countries attacking Israel in the next war, including Jordan. Since the King is pro-Western, something will happen to line up Jordan with the confederacy against Israel. This is another step in that direction. The King will do all he can to avoid it, but the Brotherhood will not take this ban easily. Expect more protests and increasing violence against the Kingdom of Jordan in the very near future. Pray for the safety and protection of King Abdullah and his family. He has been a good friend to the West.

In the end, however, it is Yehovah God and His plan that will prevail, as Daniel reminds us:

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. Daniel 2:20-22

Is G-D L-RD?

12 04 2012

First I was ignorant, then I became annoyed. Now I am alarmed. Why do many Jews and some Christians put a dash in the place of the vowels in English words that refer to the God of the Bible? Why do they substitute generic terms such LORD in place of His knowable personal name?

The earthly reason is history. Jews, before Jesus, believed pronouncing the name of God could become blasphemy, so it was banned. I respect their intent and believe they will come around to using His name in the fulness of time, which is soon! (This is actually predicted in the Talmud.) Later, institutionalized Christendom gladly picked up the man-made tradition, intentionally obscuring the Hebrew roots of the faith.

The “under earth” motive is from satan’s wish to defeat Yehovah God and take His throne. He has opportunistically seized the moment today for further confusion through the rise of the false god of Islam. The name of that god is more well-known today than the name of Yehovah. I challenge you to notice the multitude of prophetic references to God “making His Name known” throughout the Bible. If He wants to make His name known, how come so few know His name?

Who but God goes up to heaven and comes back down? Who holds the wind in his fists? Who wraps up the oceans in his cloak? Who has created the whole wide world? What is his name—and his son’s name? Tell me if you know! Proverbs 30:4 NLT

Thirdly, the Heavenly plan seems to be the judgment of God. He has allowed His name to be obscured until now in the appointed last generation. His name has four Hebrew letters expressed in English as YHVH. This personal name of God is used 6,828 times in the Hebrew text. Yet, Jews will not utter it and Christians miss-translate it.

Most Bibles have His holy name simply as the generic terms, GOD and LORD. This is code for YHVH (explained in the Preface of most Bibles) from the translators who must think we cannot handle His real name. These mere titles are written in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS, and we are supposed to know it is His name. I have an idea. Why not actually use His name? Yehovah! It makes your Bible reading come alive. (I will not quibble with the correct way to say it, Yehovah, Jehovah, or Yahweh. Click here for more.)

That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:10-11

If we heard Paul say those names out loud in Hebrew, I believe it would be this: Yeshua ha Meshiach is Yehovah. Jesus, the Messiah, is Yehovah.

Finally, back to G-D and L-ORD. It is time folks! It is time for all Bible believers to start using His personal name. I call for all to prayerfully consider this appeal. Islam is the direct opposing force. What a surprise when folks find out that “the great satan” turns out to be the god of Islam. Choose this day where you will stand. The great cosmic  rebellion from eternity is about to end. We have read the end of the Book and we win! Satan is futilely pulling out all the stops to defeat Yehovah, but has already lost. It was over when Jesus died and rose from grave. His blood satisfied the price demanded by a just God. Jesus’ submission to His Father overcame the self-will model perpetrated by the devil.

The Hebrew Scriptures don’t say “praise the LORD”, they say Praise Yehovah! (Praise Yah!) There are many lords and many gods, but only one true Yehovah. Choose you this day which one you will serve. As for me and my family, we choose to serve Yehovah and Yeshua ben Yehovah who we know as Yehovah the Father and Jesus the Son of Yehovah.

For King Jesus and for His Kingdom!

Messiah Died

7 04 2012

Sandpoint Sunrise by Ross Hall

(The following is an excerpt from my newest book, Generation LIFE Chapter 1 – Jesus is Alive, being published this summer.)


Do you believe in Him, I mean, do you really believe Him? Do you follow Him? Do you have a deep desire in your innermost being to be like Him? I want to know all I can know about Jesus. Getting to know Him personally is really possible. Do you know Him?

Do you believe He really died? Or do you think He just sort of passed out and then woke up a little later? If Jesus didn’t die, we are still in our sin. Guilty! I want to talk about His resurrection LIFE, but first we need to get this. Jesus really died. He was dead. He was so dead that He Himself could not come back to life. We need to understand this. It was not a charade. When He gave up His last breath, He was utterly dependent on the faithful true Promise of His Father to live again. That is why this chapter is named: Jesus is Alive. Of course He was eternally alive and existed with the Father before Creation, and He is alive now. But between, for three days, He was dead.

You may think it strange to begin a book about life with a dead Jesus. But, if you don’t know that He died and why He died, you are missing the best part. Yes, it is the resurrection, but it is meaningless if He did not die. Jesus died, and on the third day, rose again. Hallelujah! I really want to talk about His life. But we must understand His death to appreciate the all-encompassing glory of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. Jesus did not then, nor does He now possess some super power called “resurrection power”. If it were up to Him, He would still be dead. As we will soon see, Jesus is LIFE, He is resurrection LIFE. It is His own personal experience of redemption from death. Here is a verse to confirm how He was raised back to life.

But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you Romans 8:11.

So Jesus was dead and was resurrected by the Holy Spirit of God. We know that Jesus lived by the Spirit and was raised by the Spirit. Therefore, through His ultimate trust in Yehovah, the Father, He qualified to die for all who believe in His finished work. I honestly believe in Him, do you?

He is no longer in the grave, He arose from the dead. Jesus is alive!

Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, And He shall divide the spoil with the strong, Because He poured out His soul unto death, And He was numbered with the transgressors, And He bore the sin of many, And made intercession for the transgressors. Isaiah 53:12

Assad’s Boast

4 03 2012

The billboard in the 2006 photo above says: Al–h (the god of Islam) will protect Syria. So there is no mistake about the intent, it is on the old city wall of Damascus. I beg to differ. What we have here is a direct affront to the living God of Israel. The banner includes the picture of Assad, the dictator of Syria. Even dictators get religion when the chips are down. Yet, Yehovah made it quite clear in Isaiah 17 that the time will come when no one will save Damascus, it will cease from being a city!

This message came to me concerning Damascus: “Look, the city of Damascus will disappear! It will become a heap of ruins.” Isaiah 17:1 NLT

Assad is not the first arrogant dictator to lose a challenge to the living God Yehovah. At the end of the Age….it comes down to Yehovah, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; the living God of Israel against all false gods and philosophies of men. According to the immutable Word of the living God, we will soon see if the god of Islam can protect Damascus. Yehovah is a jealous God and He will have no other gods before Him. Period.

Not unto us, O Yehovah, not unto us, but to Your name give glory, because of Your mercy, because of Your truth. Why should the Gentiles say, “So where is their God?” But our God is in heaven; He does whatever He pleases. Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. They have mouths, but they do not speak; eyes they have, but they do not see; they have ears, but they do not hear; noses they have, but they do not smell. They have hands, but they do not handle; feet they have, but they do not walk; nor do they mutter through their throat. Those who make them are like them; so is everyone who trusts in them. Psalm 115: 1-8

Exercise: For a deeper view of using the name of Yehovah, the one true God, please read Psalm 135 and notice that in only twenty-one verses, the personal name, Yehovah, is used nineteen times. (Of course, it is hidden because it says LORD in all caps, not honestly translating the actual name, Yehovah.) This is nineteen of the 6,828 times His personal name appears in the Hebrew text, but is diluted, obscured and hidden by using the vague terms LORD or GOD which could apply to any god. It is time to use His name again! Yehovah is the name of our God! It is amazing how the Bible comes alive when you make this slight correction in your reading. We do not all worship the same God. Don’t be deceived, brothers and sisters.

Don’t Rock the Boat

25 02 2012

As I prepare to record this Sunday’s YouTube “prophecy in the news” update for Issachar Forum, I am struck by the great divide between news reports from Israel and the Western media. This great Dry Bones cartoon illustrates my point. Iran is threatening Israel, the US, and the West in general at every turn. They are building nukes, ICBMs and promising to close the strategic Strait of Hormuz. Our response? We tell Israel to cool their jets. The world is on fire and we are yanking on the reins of our greatest friend and Middle East ally. The Western “boat” really is sinking in fear and we cry out to Israel: “Don’t rock the boat!”

Another example was in today’s news coverage. I read several stories on the Jerusalem Post site detailing the murder of a US Colonel and a Major in Afghanistan by Taliban protesting the accidental burning of a Koran this week. Then I went over to the Fox News Live site for more info and only found a story with this headline: 2 NATO troops killed at ministry, Afghan officials say. The article only identifies them as “two high-ranking US military advisers”. Couldn’t somebody at Fox read the Jerusalem Post before writing their report? I warn you. If you only read American news sources, you will be ignorant of what is really happening in the world.

  I am reminded of the famous quote by Mark Twain:

  If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed.

  If you read the newspaper, you’re mis-informed.

Then she said to the king: It was a true report which I heard in my own land about your words and your wisdom. 1 Kings 10:6

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. Philippians 4:8

No Other Gods!

21 02 2012

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

It is only recently that I have found a more specific prohibition on the subject. You may have noticed by now that I refuse 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 obey the following four scriptures? Notice how the Holy Spirit progressively adds another component to the prohibition with each verse.

Here is the prohibition repeated in FOUR SCRIPTURES!

First, in Exodus: 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, secondly, 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 to the god of Islam and his messenger, Mohammed. 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 April 2009) 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).

Psalm 83:4 highlights an amazing contrast: They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.”  Satan does not have an original creative thought in his head. He can only twist and pervert what God says or does. So his plan to remove the remembrance of Israel is nothing more than a copycat idea from the truth that satan and all his false gods face in eternity.

 Now therefore, fear Yehovah, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve Yehovah!    (Joshua 24:14)

(Today’s post is an excerpt from my book Generation LIGHT, Chapter 10: Islam, Candles Are For Dark Places. We note that Jesus died for the whole world and some from every tribe and nation and language are included in His forever family.)

Freedom of Religion Aborted

11 02 2012

President Barack Obama regularly bypasses the basic US Constitution intentionally. His record of appointing czars (without seeking congressional confirmation), suing states, questionable executive orders, selling guns to Mexican cartels and of course, Obamacare itself, are not accidental. He is openly fulfilling his stated agenda which is to “fundamentally transform America.”

Now, a new frontal assault on freedom of religion. And, yes, this is written after his “accommodation.”

There is no shred of difference between the two policies. If the religious entity must pay for insurance that includes mandates in direct conflict with its official church faith, it is totally meaningless to suggest that they are not paying directly for the coverage. The insurance company will absolutely include its cost to provide the extra mandate in the overall cost of insurance to the church. There is no option for the church to buy from another provider, because it is mandated that all companies include the “free” coverage.

Also, it makes no difference if we were talking about providing aspirin instead of contraceptives. “It’s the mandate, stupid!” If aspirin was against church faith, the government cannot force them to pay for its provision in insurance. This is why the issue is freedom of religion and not women’s rights. The same mandate issue frames the unconstitutionality of Obamacare.

The original pioneers to America came to escape religious persecution and to find freedom to practice their various faiths without government interference. Have we forgotten that the European world 300 years ago was controlled by state churches? They killed people who did not belong to the state church, or at least made them second class citizens. Freedom of religion must be understood in that context. It means freedom to practice religion without government control (or MANDATES).

It just happens to be the very first clause in the very first amendment:


Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Mandating coverage, even in the President’s “accommodation,” directly prohibits the free exercise of religion. End of story.

Thank God for the many leaders of several faiths who are awake to the threat and who will resist this cancellation of our basic rights. We are in an ideological war. Wake up and smell the coffee. Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country.

Super Bowl Analogy Revisited

7 02 2012

My last (guest) post matched the previous highs of visits to this blog commentary site. Such interest deserves this follow-up. Again, I thank Melinda Fuschetto for her article. I have had good comments both pro and con to the analogy, by phone, email and two good ones on the article comment section. What is your opinion? Please comment at the end of this post.

Now the game is history, won by the Giants. The broad picture of the teams and colors and previous game context made an intriguing meditation. If her vision was about the game, the “wrong” team won. However, if the real purpose was to wake up people to the major challenge of this election; then it was quite profound.

One friend emailed a link to the many reports quoting the wife of the losing quarterback in a shameful and profane rant against other NE Patriot team members. The lesson of her outburst is that true American Patriots during this election need to stand in righteousness. The tiny issue of the game is dwarfed by the sober reality of the choice that will soon be made by this nation.

Many voices are saying that this election is the most important in our lifetime. We better get right with God. Believers actually will decide the outcome in two ways.

First, we must once again repent before God (as we did in the late ’70s): If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

Notice both the call and the promise are for God’s people to act, to do something!

The end of the Carter Presidency nearly ruined our nation, but for the mercy of God. This year we are facing an even more desperate national condition. We are staring over a precipice that could be the end of the Untied States of America. Socialist, Marxist, Communist and even worse, Islamist forces are clamoring at the gates. Some have already embedded in the highest positions of power in government, media and academia. PRAY! REPENT! and then STAND for righteousness.

Second, God’s people must vote. If we all listen for God’s voice by the Holy Spirit, and then obey His leading in the voting booth; His choices will be elected all up and down the line. When a king rules a nation, that entire nation is judged by the king’s decisions, as in ancient Israel. However, we are not in a monarchy, but a republic. Our decisions combined determine our national destiny.

Finally, of course, the outcome is in Yehovah God’s Hand. We are fast-moving toward the greatest monarchy of Jesus, Son of God, Yeshua ben Yehovah!

The prophet Daniel got it right:

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.” Daniel 2:20-21

May God have mercy on our land. What do you think?
