Dry Bones- Israel’s Political Comic Strip Since 1973

18 03 2019

Sick Sick Sick Please join me in prayer for Yaakov Kirschen, my favorite cartoonist who is recovering from pneumonia. We need him more than ever, “at such a time as this!”

Dry Bones sick

“Okay gang, so here’s what happened; The calendar rolled around to March 7 (the day before my 81st birthday ) and the LSW (Long Suffering Wife) had surprised me with a balloon, a couple of squeaky toys, and a b’day card. (We’ve taken to such saccharine rituals in recent years). But the real surprise for me was just how much I’ve been laid low with a case of Israeli pneumonia ( with stays in two separate hospitals).”
“Update from the LSW: Sali, the LSW here: Yaakov had the strength to do the cartoon, but not to finish the posting, so I will fill you in a bit more. He has been in the hospital 3 times in the last month. He has now been home about a week but is on full time oxygen and lots of antibiotics and since he is not strong enough to climb the stairs to the bedroom, he is in a rented hospital bed in the living room and I am sleeping on the couch so there will be someone near him in the middle of the night. The pneumonia turns out to be a very debilitating sickness. He will be back with you all just as soon as possible. (Getting old is not for the squeamish)”

He said, “If you will listen carefully to the voice of Yehovah your God and do what is right in his sight, obeying his commands and keeping all his decrees, then I will not make you suffer any of the diseases I sent on the Egyptians; for I am Yehovah who heals you.” Exodus 15:26 NLT

I call on all true believers in the Messiah of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to pray earnestly for the healing and restoration of our brother in Zion. Shalom, shalom!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

(Why  do I use God’s literal covenant Name, Yehovah? Here is a link to the best simple explanation I know, from my friend, Keith Johnson. Also, here is a link to my book which explains it in detail, The Hebrew God Who Has No Name.)





A Palestinian State Has Never Existed

26 02 2019

Palestine - Not

There has never been a Palestinian state. The name came from the Romans after they defeated the Jews and destroyed the Temple. They named the “area” (which was not a state or country of itself) as an offense to the Jews because of the Philistines, Israel’s Biblical nemesis.

Under British rule the area was called Palestine as a continuation of the Roman slight to the Jews. However, all residents were called Palestinians including Jews. Invented by the Soviets, it was soon picked up by Yasser Arafat, founder of the PLO, Palestine Liberation Organization.

The PALESTINIANS – The Invented People of a Fabricated Nation

The Soviet secret spy agency KGB invented the so-called “Palestinian People” in 1964.

All people born in British Mandatory Palestine between 1923-1948 (today’s Israel) had “Palestine” stamped on their passports at the time. But when they were called Palestinians, the Arabs were offended. They complained: “We are not Palestinians, we are Arabs. The Palestinians are the Jews”. Gatestone Institute

So now the whole world thinks these Arabs from Syria, Egypt, Iraq and other Arab states should have another state in the Land of Israel. Let me say one thing clearly. It is not going to happen. God has an entirely different Plan!

For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land. Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them.Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your God. Ezekiel 36:24-28

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Queen of BDS

18 02 2019

LOL: Palestinian ‘Queen of BDS’ Has a ‘Made in Israel’ Website – The Israel Advocacy Movement has uncovered a juicy and hilarious bit of information that once again exposes both the foolishness and failure of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.

Rashida Tlaib was among a handful of radical Democratic candidates to suddenly find herself in the spotlight after winning a seat in the US House of Representatives. Tlaib is most known not for what she plans to do for her constituents in Michigan, but rather for her overtly hostile positions vis-a-vis Israel.

You see, Tlaib is an America of “Palestinian” Arab descent, and she absolutely hates the Jewish state. She’s on record as saying the US should cut military aid to Israel. She’s also a big supporter of BDS, a campaign that tries, wildly unsuccessfully, to economically choke Israel out of existence.

So, we couldn’t help but burst into laughter after finding out that Tlaib’s campaign website was built on the Wix platform! As many people will know, Wix is not only one of the Internet’s top platforms for ready-made websites, it’s also one of Israel’s most successful Internet start-ups, headquartered in Tel Aviv.

No doubt Tlaib will immediately move her website to a different platform provider after realizing her grave mistake. But, until then, enjoy a little humor in your day, courtesy of Israel’s most venomous of detractors. Israel Today (If you have not yet subscribed to this delightful Israeli magazine , check it out. It is a trusted source of Messianic news from Israel.)

All the days of the afflicted are evil,
But he who is of a merry heart has a continual feast. Proverbs 15:15

Thought you might appreciate a laugh break, with all the serious world news grabbing the headlines. Enjoy!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

BLESSED – More Than We Deserve

29 01 2019

lifehopeandtruth_romans_12_2_800_800_80

Dave Ramsey was the first one I heard use the phrase in the title of this blog. I have since used it many times to express my own belief. We are all truly blessed more than we deserve. This is based on the Biblical truth called “original sin.” It simply means that we are born with selfishness, rebellion, and the tendency to sin. We don’t deserve God’s grace, it is a free gift. We are only able to overcome our natural desires through being “born again” to a new life in the Savior, Jesus the Messiah.

Jesus defeated Satan’s poison pill of self-will in the Garden of Gethsemane, when He declared three times: “Not my will by Your will be done!” This was explained in more detail in my December 17 video from when I spoke in Kenya.

When we follow the Messiah’s example of surrendering our will to our Heavenly Father, we too will find victory and blessing. The point is this. Because of our sinful self-will, we do not deserve blessing. But, due to the price paid by Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane and the cross, we are free. We are free to receive the blessings of Yehovah God and walk in the footsteps of Yeshua.

Everything I have said is very personal, but it also applies nationally. America does not deserve the grace of God either. We only enjoy His blessings as we serve Him. Much of the tribulation of this generation is the result of turning away from God.

The same applies to Israel and the Jewish people. They, too, are undeserving. Yet, Yehovah has chosen to bless them in our day because of the unfailing promises He gave to their forefathers. After nineteen hundred years of judgement, He has turned the page (since the Holocaust) to favor, restoration, and blessing. Again, this applies to individuals as they recognize the Messiah, and to the nation as it lines up with the prophesied purpose of God.

Therefore we must all humble ourselves before Him, repent of our self-will, and receive the provision delivered to us by the sacrifice of the Lamb of God. There is no other way.

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

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time. 1 Peter 5:6

If you want to understand God, you must learn to “stand under” Him.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Rise in High Intensity Earthquakes

5 01 2019
earthquake oakland 1989

Magnitude 6.9: Oakland, CA on Oct. 19, 1989. The freeway collapsed (Paul Sakuma / Associated Press)

Major earthquakes have gone from one per decade to one per year!

Jesus said several signs will increase like birth pains before He returns (Matthew 24:8). This means those signs will increase in frequency and intensity before the Second Coming. One of the signs Jesus cited is earthquakes (Matthew 24:7). We’ve seen a marked increase in the frequency of high intensity earthquakes over the past two decades. 

From 1900 to 1950, the world only registered six 8.0 magnitude earthquakes. Since 2010, we’ve had ten. Earlier this year, more than 70 earthquakes hit the Pacific Ring of Fire in a 48-hour period. The earth is preparing for the King’s return! Prophecy New Watch

It is true that we have always had earthquakes, but the intensity rise indicates we are nearing the end of history as we know it. The birth pains Jesus spoke about are now happening. He was answering the question: “What will be the sign of your return?” His answer is called the “Olivet Discourse” because he was speaking on the Mount of Olives, the exact location of His Second Coming. This conversation is recorded in Matthew 24, Luke 21, and Mark 13.

Here is an amazing observation. All of the signs He mentions are true in every generation to some degree, except one. Only one sign has an absolute time stamp. It is the sign of Jerusalem!

“And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.” Luke 21:24

This time-specific reference has an exact historical fulfillment of June 1967. Jerusalem was trampled down by the Gentile nations from 70 AD to 1967. This was not even fulfilled when Israel became a nation in 1948. Jerusalem was still held by Jordan until 1967. The restoration of Jerusalem was not only a fulfillment of the overall restoration of Israel, it confirms that we are in the generation that will welcome the Messiah. Hallelujah!

Yehovah God, the Father, turned the page of history in 1948. For nearly 2,000 years the Jews never won a war. But since 1948, they have never lost a war. What changed? It is the time of God’s restoration and favor of Israel. It is in this very season that the great sign of the Second Coming was given to erase all doubt. Jerusalem is restored to Israel! Fasten your seatbelt, the Messiah is at the door.

He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus! The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. Revelation 22:20-21

Doreen and I send our warmest love and joy to you who are faithful readers of this blog over the years. Thank you. May Jesus, the Light of the World, brighten your heart as we celebrate the incredible miracle; Yehovah God became man in the flesh to show His love for the whole world.

Kenya Final Update

14 12 2018

20181203_083855

It is great to be home again after wonderful ministry in Kenya to 2,600 young people at the 18th annual PDA Conference in Kimilili, Kenya near the Uganda border in western Kenya. PDA stand for Purpose-Destiny-Achievement. (Click here for videos.)

I spoke ten times, six at the conference and four in local churches. Future leaders of Kenya and missionaries to the nations were called from the youth there from high school, college and young professional. Many pastors also attended. Although most were committed believers, there were over 100 born again and filled with the Holy Spirit.

My goal of providing seed for the sowers, regarding God’s restoration of Israel and our call to stand with Israel as a blessing to the nations, was exceeded. Doreen and I were particularly blessed to connect and impart our Israel vision to three specific leaders from Nigeria, Ethiopia, and Uganda, who vowed to take the Israel “seed” to their respective nations. Several Kenyan pastors were inspired to visit Israel as soon as possible.

Psalm 102 (which I call the “Holocaust Psalm”), was the core of much of my teaching. Verse 13 was key as the point Yehovah turned the page for Israel from judgement to favor after 1,878 years from 70 AD to 1948. I pointed out that Israel never won a war during that severe period of judgement and scattering among the nations. But since 1948 they have not lost a war because God turned the page to restoration, blessing, regathering, rebuilding, and favor.

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

Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began. Acts 3:19-21

Thank you for all who prayed for us and supported us for this amazing two weeks in Africa. May Yehovah God’s plan and purpose be fulfilled for each one of the blessed participants. Special thanks and honor to our host, Pastor Michael Masambu.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.
