Flags Matter

13 08 2018

Dry Bones flag

Israel recently passed a law stating the obvious. Israel is a Jewish state. Yet, there is quite an uproar from some Arabs and leftist Israeli’s. The irony is that during a protest over the weekend in Tel Aviv, there were many Palestinian flags and even a popular Arab song encouraging Arabs to attack Israelis. This rally was held freely, in the open, which in itself confirms the liberty of the Israeli democracy. This despite this recent poll:

Poll: Most Palestinians Oppose Continued Military Operations Against Israel –  58% of Palestinians in Gaza and 51% in the West Bank oppose the continuation of military operations against Israeli targets, while 34% in Gaza and 32% in the West Bank support them, according to a poll conducted by the Jerusalem Media and Communication Center between June 26 and July 7 and released on Tuesday. 71% said they would not mind working in Israel or in an Israeli settlement. When asked which political faction they trust the most, 25% said Fatah, 13% said Hamas, and 49% said they didn’t trust anyone. (Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs)

‘Song of the Intifada’ in Rabin Square – Hit Arabic song encouraging Arabs to attack Israelis played during rally against Nationality Law in Tel Aviv where protesters held PLO flags. (Lyrics)

One more item of real importance is the background of the Palestinian flag. It has nothing to do with the Holy Land and everything to do with Islam. “This flag does not symbolize anything that is specific to the land of Palestine, but rather the history of the Arabs and Islam: the Umayyad caliphate – white; the Hashemites – red; the Abbasid caliphate and Mohammed – black; and Islam – green.  (The Hamas and Saudi flags are predominantly green, representing Islam.)”  (Flag History for more about Islam’s flags.)

What about the similarity of the “resistance” movements in both Israel and the U.S.? The bottom line is that Yehovah God is in charge and His Son, the Messiah is coming soon. We have read the end of the book and we win! Thank you Yeshua ben Yehovah, Jesus the Son of God.

“Yehovah loves justice, and does not forsake His saints; they are preserved forever, but the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off. The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell in it forever.” Psalm 37:28

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Gaza Swastika

10 04 2018

Nazi Pal flag IMG_20180407_141330Last weekend this flag was flying on the Gaza border. Hamas does not hide  its goal, which is not for its own state, but for the death of all Jews and indeed the complete destruction of the nation of Israel. Notice the Nazi swastika flying between the two Palestinian flags.

Even during the Holocaust, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, the top Muslim in the region, met with Hitler in Germany agreeing to work together to kill the Jews in Europe and the Middle East.

Hamas spells it out in their charter:  “Israel will exist, and will continue to exist, until Islam abolishes it, as it abolished that which was before it.” 

So why is the world media so sympathetic to the latest Hamas attempt to invade Israel. Again, they have openly stated their intent: Hamas vows Gaza protests to last until Palestinians ‘return to all of Palestine’ Times of Israel

Here is one possible answer.

Language contradiction

Hamas is recognized as a terrorist group, officially, by the Western world and the United States. You can only conclude that the media is colluding with Hamas in their aim.

We need to pray for mercy for Israel and pray for the peace of Jerusalem. By the way, they have had a few rain showers this month, well after the end of the rainy season. Keep praying for rain.

Ask Yehovah for rain in the spring, for he makes the storm clouds. And he will send showers of rain so every field becomes a lush pasture. Zechariah 10:1 NLT

Dates and Numbers from God?

20 10 2016

promised-landChristians are always trying to guess when Jesus is coming. Even Jews are trying to figure when the Messiah comes. Most agree that it is soon. But today I want to share a few historical dates that project profound events for 2017 and 5777, the Jewish year.

500 years ago Martin Luther started the Protestant Reformation in 1517. He was originally convinced that God was favoring and restoring the Jews. (Later, when they did not convert to Christianity, he was so disappointed that he became a serious anti-Semite, (but that is another story).

150 years ago the Jews of Austria and Hungary were emancipated signalling a change that would spread around the world.

100 years ago Great Britain set in motion the legal rebirth of the State of Israel with the Balfour Declaration of 1917.

50 years ago Israel regained sovereignty over the Old City of  Jerusalem during the Six Day War of 1967, for the first time since 70 AD.

What about 2017? So we have 1517, 1867, 1917, and 1967. What do you think about 2017? Is it reasonable to guess that Yehovah may be about to do something big for Israel? We just observed the start of 5777 in the Jewish calendar. Some say this is a year of Jubilee. I can’t confirm that, but each of the 50 year points we have mentioned  have surely made history.

The United Muslim Nations (sometimes called the UN) is threatening to declare a Palestinian state without Israel’s agreement. Will God allow it? I don’t think so. The nations have already divided the land in fulfillment of prophecy. Now is the time for Israel to annex Judea and Samaria (West Bank).

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

I leave you with an eight minute video from Lance Wallnau from Israel. He talks with humor about the US election and the Jewish year 5777 with Hebrew meanings behind the numbers. Just follow this link and click on the arrow on the video.

Lying CBS Headline

3 Palestinians killed as daily violence grinds on – CBS 

We have been talking a lot lately about media coverage of Palestinian terror attacks lately. Over 30 Israelis have been killed individually in the last four months by the ongoing “knife intifada”. This week it escalated to the use of semi-automatic weapons when three terrorists intended to murder many at the Damascus Gate in Jerusalem. A nineteen year old female Israeli guard was killed and another wounded, but the killers were killed.

Yet, CBS used the above headline on their initial story! Here is a reprint of an excellent article from Israel Today Magazine (which I highly recommend).

The mainstream international media on Wednesday again demonstrated its outrageous bias against Israel in reporting on the terrorist attack near the Damascus Gate of Jerusalem’s Old City.

The culprit this time around was the American television network CBS, whose news website headlined its report of the incident “3 Palestinians killed as daily violence grinds on”.

It’s fairly simple to ascertain the goal of such an elusive headline.

The initial impression most readers would get is that the three Palestinians in question were the victims. And since so many news consumers these days merely scan headlines, they would have walked away believing that.

The problem is that the Palestinians were in fact the perpetrators.

An online outcry resulted in CBS later changing the headline to “Israeli police kill 3 alleged Palestinian attackers”. It was subsequently altered again to “Palestinians kill Israeli officer, wound another before being killed”.

At no point did CBS publicly apologize or clarify its change.

Israeli media officials called for all Israelis to denounce CBS’s blatant bias as loudly as possible, while Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon called the fraudulent headline “unprecedented chutzpah.”

This debacle has provided an opportunity to again highlight why it is so important to find a reliable source of news from Israel.

The news must be read with a critical eye, knowing that important elements were probably omitted, perhaps purposefully so. Our mission at Israel Today is to fill in those gaps, to provide the stories and angles that the mainstream media left out so that you can form a more complete and clear picture of what is really happening in the Holy Land. Israel Today 2-4-16

Darkness as black as night covers all the nations of the earth, but the glory of Yehovah rises and appears over you. Isaiah 60:2

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Terror Child Abuse – PA Style

14 01 2016

Dry Bones PA educationToday we celebrate our grandson’s sixteenth birthday. We are going to see the new Star Wars movie in IMAX 3D. Yet, in Bethlehem, a completely different celebration was recently held. It was a birthday of sorts. It celebrated 51 years since the Palestine Liberation Organization’s (PLO) first terror attack. This Bethlehem parade was sponsored by the Palestinian Authority (PA), Israel’s “peace partner” for the failed “two-state solution.”

Kid-Rocket-Launcher-620x412Palestinian children holding axes, either real or fake guns and wearing mock suicide belts joined a large rally adjacent to Bethlehem last week, celebrating the 51st anniversary of the first terrorist attack by Fatah, the party led by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. The reception of the all-out festivity stood in marked contrast to the request issued to Christians just a month earlier by the Palestinian Authority asking them to tone down their Christmas celebrations in the town of Jesus’ birth. (The Blaze)

PA 160114_child_abuseIt was notable that while the Bethlehem-based Palestinian news agency Ma’an covered the parade extensively on its Arabic-language website, the story was completely missing from its English-language website, which is widely followed by the international press. Yet another example of the Palestinians sending out completely different messages in Arabic and English, just as the parade itself was further evidence that Israel has no Palestinian peace partner at the governmental level. (Israel Today)

This is clearly the worst form of child abuse. It is genocidal. Kids are raised to be murderers. They have no noble purpose or redeeming value. Their goal is simply to kill Jews, to destroy Israel. And the world remains silent, just as the Hitler Youth of the 1930’s. Nothing good can come of this in the natural. Only Yehovah God can redeem. It will end with the complete restoration and blessing of Israel even as all the demons of hell are rallied against her. We have “read the end of the Book,” God wins! His Messiah will come right on schedule with salvation for all who will believe in Him.

So, what should we do? Speak up for Israel and God’s plan, of course. But  pray for the salvation of Palestinians, especially the children who are being brainwashed as we speak.

But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And on some have compassion, making a distinction; but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh. Jude 20-23

PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM!

Christmas Terror Tree

15 12 2015

Gaza Tree Screen-Shot-2015-12-08-at-13.40.33-640x480When you thought they couldn’t stoop any lower… How about a Christmas tree decorated with picture ornaments to honor the killers and stabbers of Israelis? That is just what this tree (pictured) is all about. Notice the “Christian” clergyman standing next to it. This has gained international attention thanks to a Twitter user name Rachel Steinmetz. Here is what she wrote in her Tweet: “Faces of dead #Palestinian terrorists used as ornaments on #Christmas tree in #Gaza, where #Terrorists grow on trees.” 

I especially like her last comment: “Gaza, where Terrorists grow on trees.”

This is a new variation on a common concept practiced by Hamas and the Palestinian Authority for years. They name soccer fields after murderers. They name streets after suicide bombers. The sick cult of death knows no boundaries in their depravity. They even claim that Jesus was a Palestinian. Yet, if He was to walk into Gaza today, they would kill Jesus because He is a Jew.

Will the world ever wake up to the breathtaking hypocrisy? I think not. It is destined to get worse. The amazing thing is that God is not surprised, He sees that they do not love truth. Have you ever considered the following verse?

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12

It cannot be clearer. One who does not receive the love of the truth will be lost. It is on our own head if we reject the truth. You may not like it that God sends strong delusion, but it is true. Pray that you can recognize the truth when you see it. Learn to LOVE the truth, even if it hurts. There are some who read this verse and reject God because they don’t want a God who would do such a thing. They love their own ideals over the truth.

Receive it! Receive the love of truth. God is offering it to all, no exceptions. He loved the world so much He gave His Son. So receive His love and receive His truth. I wrote in my newest book, Blessing Israel, that the secret to understanding God is to “stand under” Him. See Him as the perfect truth and conform your views and ideals to His truth. Fall in love with the God who is Truth and live!

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

Intifada or Jihad? 2015

28 11 2015

Hitler-Store-Gaza-Most-Anti-Jewish-Person1-e1446948575944-620x435Intifada is an Arabic term that used to mean a spontaneous popular uprising. In recent years, however, it has been carefully orchestrated jihad against the Jews and Israel. This Fall has seen the rise of the “knife intifada” where 22 Israeli’s have been murdered and 203 wounded to date since October 1. But, it is not an intifada at all. It is simply classic Muslim jihad, the historic anti-Semitism against Jews and infidels.

It is just another wave of terrorism: targeting Jews for being Jews. The terrorists and their apologists do not distinguish between a Jew living in the city of Beersheba, and a Jew from a West Bank settlement. For the Palestinian leaders and media, these Jews are all “settlers” living in “occupied territories … This jihad is not aimed at “ending occupation” or protesting against misery and checkpoints. The terrorists do not see a difference between a “left wing Jew” and a “right wing Jew.” They do not ask their victims about their political affiliation before knifing them. The Palestinian Jihad: Lies, Lies and More Lies

For a generation now, since the PLO took over the West Bank, Palestinian children have been brainwashed to hate Jews and to “defend” Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

”The young Palestinian who blindly stabs [Israelis] are twins of the young British citizens traveling to Syria in order to join ISIS,” he said. “Young Palestinians who use knives are clones of young Europeans and Arabs who fight in Syria and Iraq, and terrorists in Europe. They use similar methods and the message is the same: incitement on social networks and the desire to impose radical Islam and to destroy Western civilization,” he added. “We cannot fight the wars of yesterday,” Katz continued. “This is not an intifada – this jihad, jihad and the necessary steps must be taken accordingly. Blacklisting the northern branch of the Islamic Movement is the first step in the right direction.” Israeli Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz

We must be faithful to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, but we must do it as informed intercessors. We need to see through the propaganda lies and see the truth from the perspective of Yehovah, the God of Israel and the Bible.

Consider my enemies, for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred. Keep my soul, and deliver me; Let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in You. Psalm 225:19-20
