Loving Death More than Life

14 09 2016

israel_holocaustMiddle East terrorists boast that they will win because they love death more than life. What a perverse demonic bondage! Pray for their deliverance from the death cult. (Here is another excerpt from my newest book: The Hebrew God Who Has No Name).

Israel’s enemies have no regard for life. Their objective is to completely destroy Israel; they have no concern for their safety, nor the protection of their people. They pursue death. They boast about loving death more than life!

“I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; Deuteronomy 30:19

Yehovah even pleads that they choose life. Yet, they choose death. He gives them the liberty to choose. Yehovah’s longsuffering allows them space to repent. Such is the deep love of Yehovah; and such is the insanity of the enemies of Yehovah who choose death. Walk in the prophetic and choose life.

There are consequences to your choices. Yehovah has promised protection and salvation to those who love Him. Notice that Yehovah does not promise the protection and salvation to all He loves, but only to those who love Him. Some of His promises are conditional on our response. You demonstrate your love for Him by choosing life and keeping His commandments. His love never fails. He loves the worst sinner, and He grieves when they refuse to repent and end up in Hell. Yet, there is a reason for hope. Repent, (which means: “turn around”), Choose life.

Cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,” says the Lord Yehovah. “Therefore turn and live!” Ezekiel 18:31-32

Wow! This reveals the truth of God’s character. He has no pleasure in death! Yehovah is the God of grace and mercy, the faithful God of love. What a contrast to the god of war and death that is breaking out of the Middle East and threatening the entire world.

Yet, we know that life will win over death, no matter the boasts of the deceived. Jesus is the resurrection and the Life. All who turn from their wickedness will find life abundantly.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

The Turkey is Coming Home to Roost

19 08 2016

RecepTayyipErdoğan_(cropped)Ok, so maybe my title is a little too cute? But my topic is quite sober. The rise of Islamism in Turkey this summer and the feeble “coup” attempt has secured Erdogan as the Supreme Leader of the Muslim world.

Early Christendom Ban

Even though almost all original believers in Yeshua as Messiah were Jews, a deadly separation opened up between Jews and Christians. By the time Constantine was Emperor, the animosity against Jews was legalized by decree of the Empire.

Constantine was reportedly quite anti-Jewish. Edicts kept coming from Council after Council for hundreds of years starting around 325 AD. This major separation from Judaism coincided with Constantine simply declaring that the Empire was now Christian. His subjects went to bed one night as pagans and awoke the next morning as Christians! Yet not one of them was born again through repentance and the shed blood of Jesus. The mixture of unbelievers with true believers in Christendom persists until today and is the precursor to the great apostasy (“falling away”).

Eventually, Islam conquered Constantinople and changed the name to Istanbul. The Hagia Sophia Church had been the pride of Christendom for a thousand years from 537-1520 A.D. It was the largest cathedral in the world. The Muslim Ottoman Turks converted it to a mosque until 1931, when secularized Turkey made it into a museum. However, Erdogan has his eyes set on turning it back into a mosque, as part of his Islamization plan.

Islamism Rising in Turkey

The resurgence of Islamic radicalism is now clear in Turkey. The Jerusalem Post predicted this in 2010. It means that the revival of the Ottoman Empire and the restored Caliphate is just around the corner. It is my opinion that ISIS is a premature attempt to revive a Caliphate. If Erdogan were to somehow get credit for solving the ISIS problem, he would be a hero. He could become the real Caliph of most of Islam. Prophetic events are happening at an almost daily pace. Keep your eyes on Turkey. Ezekiel 38 features Turkey and cities in Turkey as the leader of the final great battle of Gog and Magog.

However, Yehovah, God of Israel will again fight for Israel and win.

“And it will come to pass at the same time, when Gog comes against the land of Israel,” says the Lord Yehovah, “that My fury will show in My face. For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath I have spoken: ‘Surely in that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel, so that the fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.’ I will call for a sword against Gog throughout all My mountains,” says the Lord Yehovah. “Every man’s sword will be against his brother. And I will bring him to judgment with pestilence and bloodshed; I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am Yehovah.” ’ Ezekiel 38:18-22

Supreme Leader of the Muslim World

19 07 2016

anti-MessiahMuslim Scholars declare post-coup Erdogan SUPREME LEADER for the ENTIRE Muslim World

Don’t miss this! While our attention has been on the election and murders of police, an event of Biblical importance was announced in the Muslim world. Turkey’s President Erdogan has been recognized by all Muslim scholars globally. This has just happened this week. Here is the report from Walid Shoebat, an ex-Muslim radical who now preaches Jesus.

After the failed coup in Turkey, a crucial letter of allegiance granted to Erdogan by all Muslim scholars globally was sent from none other than Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, president of the World Federation of Muslim Scholars. 

Qaradawi represents all Sunni Muslim scholars globally. He even tweeted some of its contents. The excerpts from this letter was shared in every media in the Middle East. From the Arab world to Turkey, every Arabic speaking media covered it with zero mention in the West. It consists of what many viewed as a direct command from heaven itself to Erdogan declaring that “Allah” including “the angelic host” and “the saints” appointed Erdogan to be given allegiance by all Muslims including all Muslim scholars from all four corners of the globe:

“Allah is with you and all Arab and Muslim nations are with you including all freedom loving people are with you. We, all the Muslim scholars, in the four corners of the globe, are with you. The Angel Gabriel and the righteous one [in heaven] are with you. And after that the angels will be revealed.”

Many commentators believe that Erdogan himself may have faked the coup, in order to impose Sharia in Turkey. But this development seems far more sinister. I have said for several years that this verse in Revelation may apply to Turkey and the “decapitated” Caliphate from the 400 year Ottoman Empire after the first World War. Has the head wound been healed?

And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. Revelation 13:3
Whatever this means, it certainly bears watching and praying. One of the consequences of the failed “coup” is that Erdogan has closed down the airbase that the US uses in Turkey for the bombing of Isis in Syria. This is complicated by the fact that the US has tactical nukes at the location which could fall into the hands of Turkey.

Remember that God is in control and all is right on His schedule. We do not need to fear. Trust in Yehovah God and His Messiah and Son, Yeshua ben Yehovah.

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2Timothy 1:7

Beautiful New England

15 07 2016

IMG_20130905_130046_848After an enjoyable train ride from North Carolina, we have arrived in Maine for three weeks of ministry including New Hampshire and Connecticut. We are delighted to speak in four churches with 7 or 8 meetings. We are based with our friends Rob & Ruth Brown whose Hospitality begins with a capital H.

The main message the Lord has given me is for faith over fear. The word I received in my May Idaho trip is more needed every day. I preached it last week at New Path Church in Raleigh, NC with the title: “Have You Taken the Mark Yet?”

The Dallas Police murders followed by the Nice, France terrorist slaughter are only the most recent examples of a terrible release of the demonic spirit of fear from the pit of hell. Yet, the Bible is crystal clear:

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2Timothy 1:7

Notice that fear is a “spirit,” and it is not from God! Most of the talk this election year has been about anger. But the Lord showed me that anger is only the tip of the iceberg. Underneath the anger is a deep personal visceral fear of what is coming upon us. Believers should not give in to fear, but rather encourage one another in our faith. We are not under the devil’s power. Yehovah God and His Son, Jesus, Yeshua ben Yehovah has all authority and we need only fear Him. Our times are in His hands and the devil cannot kill us without a “hunting permit.” Through the blood of Jesus, the Messiah, we are part of the family of God.

For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” Romans 8:15

Does that mean we cannot be martyred? No, it means that if we die, we know we will be raised back to eternal life. Death itself has been defeated! We will live again, just as Jesus died and yet lives!

Declare the life of Yehovah and resist the temptation to fear. Put your trust in Jesus. He never fails.

Islamophobia-Phobia

28 06 2016

islamfeb122016Islamophobia-Phobia is a greater threat to freedom than fear of Islam. Without faith in Yehovah, God of the Bible, an ordinary citizen should certainly have a healthy fear of Islam, a sober respect for the danger posed to Western Judeo/Christian civilization by Islamic supremacism. Don’t be deceived. The fundamental doctrine of Islam declared by the Koran, the Hadith and the Sunnah is world domination and conquest. Fundamentalist Muslims really do hate us and want to kill us (if we refuse to convert).

A 2007 world Gallup Poll of Muslims in 35 countries found that a least 7 per cent were totally radical Muslims who justified suicide bombings of infidels. That means of today’s 1.6 billion Muslims, 112 MILLION are “radicalized.”

So, what if you do believe in Yehovah and Yeshua ben Yehovah (Jesus Son of God)? I am not afraid of Islam. Therefore, I am not Islamophobic. My life is under Yehovah’s control. Satan, or Islam, cannot kill me without getting a permit from the God of Israel. My relationship with my Heavenly Father trumps all other considerations.

But there is still a threat from Islamophobia. Who is really acting and making decisions out of fear of Islam? It’s the politically correct crowd. They are AFRAID of offending Muslim sensibilities and thus they cower in fear and submission to the outlandish demands of Sharia compliance. They are truly Islamophobic.

So we may boldly say, Yehovah is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do unto me? Hebrews 13:6

Wisdom starts with the fear of Yehovah and therefore I fear nothing less than His great glory. The fear of the (LORD) is the foundation of all wisdom and peace.  And we see this declaration in both the Old and New Testaments. (This verse is quoted directly from Psalm 118:6, therefore we can see that “LORD” is Yehovah.)

Yehovah is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? Psalm 118:6

One more lie to expose involves who is the target of most religious persecution. A 2014 Pew study concluded that 58% of incidents were against Jews, followed by Hindus. Attacks on Muslims by other religions is a myth. By far, the worst attacks on Muslims are by fellow Muslims.

Please substitute Yehovah for LORD in the following quote for the true meaning.

Let those who fear the LORD now say, “His mercy endures forever.” I called on the LORD in distress; The LORD answered me and set me in a broad place. The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? The LORD is for me among those who help me; Therefore I shall see my desire on those who hate me. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes. Psalm 118:4-9

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Still Redacted, Still Deceiving

21 06 2016

Loretta LynchThe Justice Department reversed itself after releasing the Orlando 911 calls, but still deceived Americans with the new version. They still refused to include the most critical word, “Allah”. Why is this so important?

The cornerstone of Islamic propaganda to the West is a lie about words. They (especially the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR) have convinced the gullible West that the name of the God of Islam is not a name at all, but just an Arabic generic word for god. This is a lie from the pit of hell. From this foundational lie comes the more familiar lie: “We all worship the same god.” Muslims know full well the name of their god.

The Orlando mass murderer was heard by everyone present to repeatedly yell the infamous phrase: “Allahu Akbar!” The translation from Arabic is that the god of Islam (by name) is the greatest. It is absolutely not “God is great,” even though the media and the last two Presidents claim that it is. I have detailed all of this in my book, Simple Islam.

Yehovah, the God of the Bible and of Jews and Christians, is a Father. The god of Islam is not. Yehovah, the God of Israel, has a Son. The god of Islam does not. End of story. Most of the confusion about Islam in America comes from this basic lie. We are clearly warned to not allow other gods. The god of Islam is a pagan desert moon god that was promoted to “the only god” by Mohammed. I conclude with my classic question. What part of “no other gods” don’t you get?

“You shall have no other gods before Me.” Exodus 20:3

“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

“Yet you have forsaken Me and served other gods. Therefore I will deliver you no more.” Judges 10:13

London Buses: Glory to Pagan god

10 05 2016

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

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

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

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

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

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

UN Vote Friday to Condemn Israel

19 04 2016

Golan 4-16

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

To Scarf or not to Scarf?

23 02 2016

Dry Bones hijab day

 

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

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

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

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

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

Chapter 11 – Stop Saying the Names of other gods

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

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

Here is the prohibition

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

Then Joshua adds three more conditions.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

World Scarf Day

17 02 2016

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Tailwind for Terror

30 01 2016

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

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

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

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

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

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




Devout Muslim Shoots Cop in the Name of Islam

9 01 2016

Philly cop shooter edward-archerThe police news conference was crystal clear. This devout Muslim (according to his own mother), tried to execute a Philadelphia police officer in the name of Islam and the Quran in support of ISIS. This was by his own video confession.  This attempted execution was Friday night and left the heroic policeman in need of multiple surgeries to save his arm.  

Commissioner Ross says the suspect has given a full confession, saying he did it in the name of Islam. “According to him, police bend laws that are contrary to the teachings of the Quran.” Sources say the suspect’s full confession of the alleged attack was written down and recorded on video. CBS Philly

However, in the very same news conference, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenny (D) perversely contradicted his own Police Commissioner. The Mayor tried to defend Islam in a cowardly “politically correct” denial of the stipulated truth. Here is his statement:

“In no way, shape or form does anyone in this room believe that Islam or the teachings of Islam have anything to do with what you’ve seen on that screen,” Kenney said. “That is abhorrent. It’s just terrible, and it does not represent the religion in any way, shape or form or any of its teachings. This is a criminal with a stolen gun who tried to kill one of our officers,” he added. “[It] has nothing to do with being a Muslim or following the Islamic faith.” (Click here for the video statement.)

Who made the Mayor an expert on Islam? There are millions of radical Muslims who base their entire religious ideology squarely on the Quran and Islam. What audacity for the Mayor to claim such omnipotent knowledge of Islam! We are at the point in prophetic history where official leaders blatantly lie publicly to deceive gullible people.

So, what does the Bible say? I submit two references for your consideration.

#1 – 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 – But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth. Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also. 1 John 2:20-23

53 Christian Refugees Allowed into America Since 2011

17 11 2015

Syrian refugeesWhile all the attention is on radical Islam and Isis and Muslim refugees, who knew we have only allowed 53 Christians into the U. S. in four years?!

President Obama said Monday (11-16-15) that calls from some quarters for the U.S. to admit only Christian refugees from Syria were “shameful,” yet the reality is that today’s refugee system discriminates, not against Syrian Muslims, but against Christians and other non-Muslim minorities…Of 2,184 Syrian refugees admitted into the U.S. since the Syrian civil war erupted in 2011, only 53 (2.4 percent) have been Christians while 2098 (or 96 percent) have been Muslims, according to State Department statistics updated on Monday. CNSNews.com

DISCRIMINATION: 2,098 SYRIAN MUSLIM REFUGEES ALLOWED INTO AMERICA, ONLY 53 CHRISTIANS

Despite President Obama’s sanctimonious proclamation Monday that America does not have a religious test when it comes to admitting refugees into America, the actual math appears to show the complete opposite is true. Nevertheless, despite this widely publicized bloodbath, since 2011, only 53 Christians have been offered refuge in the United States…The F.B.I. has already admitted that it cannot adequately vet these refugees, and ISIS has promised to use the Syrian refugee process as a means to infiltrate the West with terrorists. Early reports indicate that two, or maybe three, of the gunmen that hit Paris Friday snuck in through the refugee program. . Breitbart.com

After the Paris attacks last Saturday, the Western world is truly shocked again at the barbaric blood lust of radical Islamists. Yet even now, a chorus is rising to defend Islam. Even though the internet was flooded with celebrations of the “victory” against the infidels, President Obama announced he wants to bring 10,000 Syrian refugees this year and 100,000 next year. The Trojan horse syndrome is in full swing.

Oh, and the President did one other thing after the Paris carnage. On Saturday, he released Osama bin Laden’s bodyguard from Gitmo, along with four other top terrorists. It is bizarre. Some have called the President delusional.

Somebody better start paying attention.

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

Quick Guide to Islam

5 11 2015

Simple Islam front coverThis morning I was moved by the Holy Spirit to again proclaim the simplicity of Islam. Don’t get confused. It really is this simple. The Quran adamantly denies that its god is a father, or that he has a son. Please take seriously this excerpt from my book: Simple Islam.

Here is the irreducible minimum you need to know about Islam: a “Quick Guide to Islam.” I truly believe it is all you need to know about Islam.

  1. We do not all worship the same God.
  2. Islam’s god is not a father.
  3. Islam’s god has no son.
  4. Islam’s god is not Yehovah, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Contrast these facts with the following verses.

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

The god of the Quran commands your son to die for him. The Living God of the Bible sent His Son to die for you.

Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. 1 John 2:22

Don’t Confuse Me with the Facts

Islam does not exist in a vacuum. It did not “just fall off the turnip truck” as the saying goes. There is a clear historical record of the birth of Islam. We know where it came from. Islam has a historical relationship with Jews and Christians, and their contrasting doctrines of faith and practice. We know the differences in their beliefs and their treatment of Bible believers. Even the Quran makes the distinction, calling Jews and Christians “People of the Book.” There is a clear record of the practice of Islam for nearly 1,400 years. We know what follows the “wave” of Islamic conquest and migration.

Pray for the deliverance and salvation of all people enslaved in the Islamic lie.

What if Israel’s God Answers Prayer?

20 10 2015

Dry Bones prayerA main theme of my newest book, Blessing Israel, is the coming merger of true believing Christians and true Jewish believers. Our friend at Dry Bones Cartoons did it a gain. He speaks as an Israeli Jew, and seems to recognize the same thing I see. Here is a prophecy from Paul, the Apostle.

For Christ himself has brought peace to us. He united Jews and Gentiles into one people when, in his own body on the cross, he broke down the wall of hostility that separated us. Ephesians 2:14 NLT

Now, enjoy Yaachov Kirschen’s commentary on his above cartoon. Wow!

Western media and politicians cannot see religious belief as a reality. They cannot understand the battle as being beyond politics and economics. They do not understand and cannot conceive that many Muslims view Jewish prophecy as literally real, and possibly a threat to Islamic dominance.

A case in point is the history of one of the gates of the walled city of Jerusalem; the “Golden Gate.” For many centuries Jewish and Christian sages have taught that the long awaited Messiah will enter Jerusalem through that gate. Apparently to prevent the entry into Jerusalem by the prophesied “King of the Jews”, the Muslims walled-up the gate in 810. When Christian Crusaders took the city they reopened the gate (in 1102). When Saladin conquered Crusader Jerusalem in 1187 he had the gate walled-up again. Later, the Ottoman Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent rebuilt it, together with the city walls, but it was again walled-up by Muslims in 1541, and it has stayed that way until today.

Why the West is Losing to Jihad

6 10 2015

candy 10-2015

The West continues to be clueless as to the source of Muslim hatred. While we are always seeking a “motive” for jihadi terrorist murders, radical Islam marches on. A million refugees flood Europe in a colossal Trojan Horse migration and Europe provides free housing, welfare and medical treatment. After several terrorist murders in Israel this week, the Palestinians were once again handing out candy. Radical Islam is simple Muslims taking the Koran and Hadith literally. They are doing what Mohammed did. They believe in a supremacist world conquering religion that ultimately eliminates all others. Sharia is not only the religious duty of Muslims, it is equally the legal system. The West sees Islam as a benign, even “peaceful” religion. That is a fatal mistake that threatens the foundations of Western civilization which originated in the values of our Judeo/Christian Biblical heritage. Despite our recent straying from our roots, the values of freedom, liberty and responsibility are still in our DNA.

Today, I want you to consider one narrow example of the polar opposite to Biblical values. It is seen in the murder of two Israelis last Saturday in Jerusalem’s Old City. One was a Rabbi, the other a husband and father of two. I am not making this up. It is today’s news and the links are provided in blue highlights.

Palestinian Baby Named in Honor of Jerusalem Stabber: A newborn Palestinian Arab baby has been named in honor of the Arab terrorist who murdered two Jews and wounded three others in a stabbing attack in Jerusalem’s Old City on Saturday night. The Palestinian Authority’s official news agency Wafa was quick to publish a festive birth announcement, PMW also noted. Halabi was lauded in Wafa’s report as a “hero of our people” who had been “assassinated by the army of the occupation.” Also according to Wafa, “while still in the hospital, the mother of the baby called the mother of Martyr Halabi…during the phone conversation, the two mothers cried from joy.”

WAFA, the official Palestinian Authority news agency and the official PA daily newspaper both reported on the joyous naming. Here is the actual article published in both official PA sources (translated by Palestinian Media Watch).

Headline: “Muhannad the newborn hugs Muhannad the Martyr, and the two of them unite the homeland”
“Even before the Martyr (Shahid) Muhannad Halabi was buried, the cry of a baby was heard in a hospital in the Gaza Strip, heralding the birth of a baby named Muhannad Halabi…
The parents of the baby decided to name their new son Muhannad Halabi after the Martyr Halabi from the village of El-Bireh, who was murdered by the occupation’s army in occupied Jerusalem.
While still in the hospital, the mother of the baby called the mother of Martyr Halabi…
During the phone conversation, the two mothers cried from joy: The mother of the baby cried from joy at the birth of her baby, who eternalized the name of the hero among the heroes of our eternal people, and the second mother (i.e., of the terrorist) cried from joy at the birth of the baby that will eternalize the name of her son the Martyr.”
‘I yelled for help and they spat at me,’ says victim of Jerusalem attack: “The terrorist lunged at us, started stabbing my husband, then me. I tried to take away the knife, but I failed… I yelled ‘please help me!’ and they just spat at me,” said Banita of the surrounding Palestinian shopkeepers whom she said looked on and did nothing as Palestinian terrorist Muhannad Halabi attacked her and her family in an alleyway near Lion’s Gate in the Old City. The Banitas’ two-year-old son was also lightly injured in the attack. Their infant girl was unharmed.
End the evil of those who are wicked, and defend the righteous. For you look deep within the mind and heart, O righteous God. Psalm 7:9 NLT
Redeem Israel, O God, out of all their troubles! Psalm 25:22

101 Die at Grand Mosque in Mecca

A picture captures the moment the fatal crane was struck by lightning

A bolt of lightning struck and strong winds toppled a huge crane in Mecca which then fell directly through the roof of the mosque. Now at least 107 have died and more than 278 injured. This tragedy hit on at 11:45 Eastern time on 9-11 as Americans were remembering the terrible attack of 14 years ago.

Photos posted on social media shows the polished tiled floor of the mosque covered in rubble, bodies and pools of blood, and people fleeing the area bleeding and covered in soot.

The tragic incident in Saudi Arabia occurred shortly before the 6:30 pm Friday evening prayer session – one of the busiest times of the week – causing devastation to what is the largest mosque in the world. … Pictures taken before the disaster show the crane being struck by a bolt of lightning and authorities are in little doubt extreme weather was to blame. … The mosque stands at 3.84 million square feet and can hold up to 820,000 worshippers, but this latest renovation will increase it to 4.3 million square feet, allowing it to accommodate up to 2.2 million at a time. Daily Mail.com

Major Sandstorm in Israel: At the same time, Israel is experiencing one of the worst sandstorms on record for the fourth day from a freak storm that began in Syria. Notice the picture below which would normally have a clear background of the Temple Mount and the Gold Dome which is only a thousand yards or so away. It was taken from a popular photo spot on the Mount of Olives. Below it is a normal view from the same area.

Do these events relate to 9-11, the last day of the Shemitta Year (starts Saturday at sundown), the Fall Feasts (Trumpets begins at sundown Sunday), the fourth blood moon (Sept 28)? Or should they be dismissed as meaningless coincidences? Wow! At the very least, we need to be awake, alert and watching. These are profoundly prophetic times.

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things, know that summer is near—at the doors! Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.” Matthew 24:29-35

Migration, NOT Immigration

8 09 2015
ISIS fighters like these, 4,000 of them, are already in place in Western nations, a jihadist smuggler confirmed. Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2015/09/isis-smuggler-we-will-use-refugee-crisis-to-infiltrate-west/#tjLRY0KIw5sCyGGd.99

ISIS fighters like these, 4,000 of them, are already in place in Western nations, a jihadist smuggler confirmed.

For years I have warned of the migration of Muslims to the West. Suddenly, it has exploded in the headlines, especially in Europe. Bleeding heart liberals are demanding we take in these poor “refugees”. I have an opposite view. Whereas there are no doubt real refugees involved, the real purpose is stated, proclaimed and documented. Radical Islam has always used massive migration of Muslims to first infiltrate and then overwhelm unsuspecting and charitable nations. It is the perfect strategy. Use the West’s Judeo/Christian’s own theology against them. Both Jews and Christians preach caring for the strangers among us.

The distinction between migration and immigration has been a topic of this Elisha Vision Commentary for years. I even wrote about it four years ago in my third book, Generation Light. Here is a quote:

Media types discuss Muslim immigration to Western nations, but I rather see it as migration. They do not intend to integrate into Western culture and society, but instead to dominate it. Generation Light – 2011

The multi-cultural mantra of leftists has proven bankrupt for one simple reason. Muslim radicals are not interested in assimilating into Western culture, they want to destroy it. They intend to replace our Bill of Rights and Bible based system of laws with their system, Sharia. And make no mistake. The two concepts are completely incompatible.

Would you like proof of their plan? Check out these headlines and read the stories by following the links highlighted in blue. The first is a proclamation by ISIS last February! Notice the progression of dates.

ISIS threatens to send 500,000 migrants to Europe as a ‘psychological weapon’ in chilling echo of Gaddafi’s prophecy that the Mediterranean ‘will become a sea of chaos’. February 18, 2015

ISIS terrorists are arriving in Europe hidden among migrants crossing the Mediterranean on boats, warns EU’s top prosecutor. July 6, 2015

The Islamic State Had Warned Europe They Would Send 500,000 ‘Migrants’ as ‘Weapon’. September 3, 2015 

ISIS smuggler: ‘We will use refugee crisis to infiltrate West’. September 4, 2015

‘Just wait…’ Islamic State reveals it has smuggled THOUSANDS of extremists into Europe. September 7, 2015

We cannot say we haven’t been warned. Wake up! It is time for Christians and Jews everywhere to speak out the truth about migration, and back it up with their own proclamations.

So that Satan will not outsmart us. For we are familiar with his evil schemes. 2 Corinthians 2:11 NLT

EUROPEAN COLONIZATION, NOT REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT





Isis Attacks Egypt Near Israel Border

1 07 2015

Sinai_Attack_1.7.15Today, July 1, a major Isis military attack in the Sinai, near Israel and Gaza, killed 200 and injured many more. (updated death toll)

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant moved ominously close to Israel’s borders Wednesday, July 1 – not as predicted in the north, but in the south, from the Sinai Peninsula. There, ISIS followed up on its Ramadan terror outrages in France, Tunisia, Kuwait and Kobani, with a massive assault on Egyptian forces in the northern Sinai region of Sheikh Zuwaid close to the Israeli and Gaza Strip borders.
Not just a terrorist attack, ISIS launched a full-scale military assault, starting with mortar fire and suicide bombings against five Egyptian military checkpoints.

Using a tactic similar to that employed in the capture of the Iraqi town of Ramadi last month, ISIS gunmen followed this initial assault by riding in on minivans, backed by heavy mortar fire, to storm the positions held by stunned Egyptian troops. Altogether some 20 Egyptian army positions were attacked in and around Sheikh Zuwaid.

Egyptian troop reinforcements setting out from El Arish to the northeast to aid the beleaguered force, went up on mine and bomb traps secretly planted around their camps and police stations. Egyptian Apache assault helicopters striking the ISIS force themselves faced ground fire from shoulder-borne anti-air missiles.

Egyptian forces are reported to have sustained heavy casualties, at least 64 dead and many more wounded. The Islamists are additionally said to have taken Egyptian prisoners as hostages. (Debka File)

For those who don’t know, the acronym “ISIL” is used by President Obama instead of ISIS or IS. Why? The “L” stands for the Levant, which is not only Iraq and Syria, but includes Israel. This attack could be connected to Psalm 83. It is time to pray!

US Middle East forces located in Jordan and at Sharm el-Sheikh are on the ready in case the Islamic State decides to attack the US officers and men at the Multinational Force facility in Sinai, which is located near the Sheikh Zuwaid battlefield.

Standing ready for the Islamist offensive in Sinai were the jihadis of the Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, which recently declared Sinai a province of the Islamic State and took an oath of allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

ISIS draws on two additional major sources for its fighting manpower: the infrastructure it established in turbulent Libya for training and arming jihadis to cross the Egyptian border into Sinai; and the fatal attraction its radicalizing ideology holds for young Muslims who are taught that the brutal murder of Islam’s foes is a cleansing and purifying act. (Debka File)

This fatal attraction is nothing more or less than the demonic spirit from hell that loves death more than life. Satan comes only to steal, kill and destroy. He is the one who spawns the abomination of desolation. But that is not the end of the story. Here is the truth in Jesus own words:

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:10

Yehovah has given me a strong warning not to think like everyone else does. He said, “Don’t call everything a conspiracy, like they do, and don’t live in dread of what frightens them. Make Yehovah of Heaven’s Armies holy in your life. He is the one you should fear. He is the one who should make you tremble. He will keep you safe.” Isaiah 8:11-13 NLT

(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!

Thoughts on Texas Massacre

8 05 2015

Simple Islam front coverOh, that’s right, it was not a massacre. One security guard was shot in the leg. And a traffic cop took out two jihadists with a handgun…while they were firing A-K 47s. Otherwise it could have been a massacre of hundreds of people.

The private, ticketed free speech event was held in response to a radical Muslim event in the same venue on January 17. Most Americans do not have a clue about creeping Sharia in our country. Sharia requires the death penalty for “slandering the Prophet.” And it can be carried out by any Muslim with a knife or a gun, anytime, anywhere. Should America be paying better attention to this threat? Don’t judge Pamela Geller until you thoughtfully read her case for free speech.

Our Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, made this strange statement about Muslims in America facing discrimination: We in the administration and the government should give voice to the plight of Muslims living in this country and the discrimination that they face. And so I personally have committed to speak out about the situation that very often people in the Muslim community in this country face. The fact that there are 1.6 billion Muslims in the world and the Islamic faith is one about peace and brotherhood.

The claim that Islam is about peace and brotherhood would be hard to embrace for those beheaded in the name of Islam. Sharia condemns women to second-class status, supports slavery and imposes many other anti-freedom laws. Proponents believe it is higher law than the US Constitution.

Johnson’s claim of Muslims facing discrimination is also misleading. Every year the FBI statistics on religious hate crimes shows that Jews are targeted four to one compared to Muslims. Jonathan Tobin wrote an excellent article in Commentary Magazine:

FBI Statistics Belie Islamophobia Hysteria It has become an accepted trope of contemporary journalism that American Muslims are under siege and beset by hatred and prejudice. But the evidence for this conventional wisdom is lacking. The story line of Muslim persecution in the United States has always been a matter of anecdotes and perception, not facts.

So how should a Christian Zionist react to threats of “slandering the prophet”? I will comment on two levels. First is the instruction of Jesus to “love your enemies.” Forgiveness, grace and salvation are offered to every human who receives and obeys Jesus as the Son of God. I believe God grieved over the death of the two jihadists because they died without knowing Jesus and were condemned to hell. Jesus died for all who will trust Him, and we should love our enemies right into the Kingdom!

The second level is also Biblical. We owe no respect or tolerance to pagan gods. As I have asked before: “What part of ‘You shall have no other gods before Me’ don’t we get? America is confused by conflating these two levels. We should love individual Muslims, but expose the anti-Christ cult of Sharia Islam.

Free speech is a God-given liberty that is completely non-existent under the domination of Sharia law. The more faithful a Muslim becomes, the more he submits to and demands all submit to Sharia. It is not optional. Sharia is a system of world conquest, nothing less. Sharia is now here in America. What are you going to do?

He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, Colossians 1:13

Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. John 8:36

Duke University Debacle

15 01 2015

Duke University ChapelDebacle:[dey-bah-kuhl ] – noun

a general breakup or dispersion; sudden downfall or rout:

a complete collapse or failure.

Breaking news this week at Duke University, Durham, NC

 

Muslim call to prayer to sound at Duke University

UPDATE! Just as I posted this commentary, it was announced that Duke has rescinded its decision. Praise God for this, but you may still see a need for prayer in the explanation here in this article.

A Muslim call to prayer will now sound from the Duke Chapel Bell Tower every Friday for three minutes at 1 pm. This has become a national story because of last week’s Paris radical Muslim massacre of cartoonists who had “offended the prophet.” I offer this background data for awakened Christians desiring prayer points with a punch.

There is a part of the story I have not heard anywhere else. This decision by Duke is a direct contradiction with their historic stated reason to exist as an institution. While the official sanctioning of a religious activity may land them in legal trouble, my interest is the departure from the Christian mandate of Duke University. Let’s compare the 1924 version with the 2014 version of Duke’s aims according to the official by-laws.

Here is the complete 1924 version: (Emphasis mine)

“The aims of Duke University are to assert a faith in the eternal union of knowledge and religion set forth in the teachings and character of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; to advance learning in all lines of truth; to defend scholarship against all false notions and ideals; to develop a Christian love of freedom and truth; to promote a sincere spirit of tolerance; to discourage all partisan and sectarian strife; and to render the largest permanent service to the individual, the state, the nation, and the church. Unto these ends shall the affairs of this University always be administered.”

Here is the complete 2014 version: (Emphasis mine)

The aims of Duke University (the “University”) were originally set forth in a statement that President John C. Kilgo wrote for Trinity College in 1903. Kilgo’s statement, which grounded the University’s purposes in the Christian tradition of intellectual inquiry and service to the world, was adapted for Duke University upon its establishment in 1924. Recognizing its origin in this tradition, its continuing relationship to The United Methodist Church, and the diverse constituency that has developed since its founding, the University is committed to creating a rigorous scholarly community characterized by generous hospitality towards diverse religious and cultural traditions.  The University therefore pursues the following aims: to foster a lively relationship between knowledge and faith; to advance learning in all lines of truth; to defend scholarship against all false notions and ideals; to develop a love of freedom and truth; to promote a respectful spirit of dialogue and understanding; to discourage all partisan and sectarian strife; and to further the advancement of knowledge in service to society. The affairs of the university will always be guided by these ends.

So, they have eliminated Jesus Christ, the Son of God, in favor of diverse religious and cultural traditions. Therefore, we should not be shocked by the welcome for the Muslim declaration of faith every Friday blasting over the campus. 

If you need more clarity, just look at the actual words in the Islamic call to “prayer.” It is nothing less than Muslim evangelism.

(I remind you that I don’t speak the name of the god of Islam because of four Scripture verses [see below]. However, in this case you need to know they do not say “god is greatest”, but specifically use the personal and unique name of their god. Therefore I make the translation to read as they say it. It is a deadly error to insert the generic “god” in place of the name. Millions of Muslims consider it blasphemy for Christians to say that name.)

Here is a translation of the main part of the Muslim call, the Adhan: “Allah is Greatest. I bear witness that there is no deity except Allah. Come to pray. Come to success. Allah is Greatest. There is no deity except for Allah.” 

Duke University has fallen from saying that Jesus is the Son of God to now proclaiming publicly that there is no god except for the god of Islam.

Since the Bible many times refers to Yehovah as the Father, and the Koran adamantly denies that their god is a Father, we are clearly talking about two different deities. Derek Prince taught that if Jesus is a Prophet, then Mohammed is a false prophet. Now let me close with pertinent Scriptures.

Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son.   (1 John 2:22)

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)

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).

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).

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).

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).

Pray that Duke University will repent and return to her Biblical foundations!

The Attack on Civility

13 01 2015

Pamela Geller

ci·vil·i·ty :  noun \sə-ˈvi-lə-tē\  

polite, reasonable, and respectful behavior

a :  civilized conduct; especially :  courtesy, politeness

b :  a polite act or expression

bar·ba·rous : adjective \ˈbär-b(ə-)rəs\

a: not polite or proper : very rude or offensive

b: very cruel and violent

Synonyms: atrocious, barbaric, cruel, brutal, brute, butchery, fiendish, heartless, inhuman, inhumane, sadistic, savage, truculent, vicious, wanton

Antonyms: benign, benignant, compassionate, good-hearted, humane, kind, kindhearted, sympathetic, tender-hearted

Who was the first barbarian? I submit to you that Cain was the first barbarian.

And He said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground. So now you are cursed from the earth, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. Genesis 4:10-11

Chicken or egg? Contrary to revisionist history, I believe God created Adam and Eve as civilized beings. The first murder was the birth of barbarism. Cain refused the civil order instituted by God. I answer the age-old question of which came first, chicken or egg, very simply. God created the creatures and then ordered them to multiply.

Today we watch as barbarians try to take over the world. This is not a clash of civilizations, it is a clash of civilization and barbarity, order and disorder, law and lawlessness. Two reports in today’s headlines show the utter depravity that has befallen this generation:

‘Russian Spies’ Executed by Child Soldier in Shocking ISIS Video (story only, video not shown)

More Young Teenage Girl Suicide Bombers in Nigeria (one or more of these girls may be from the 200+ Boko Haram captives from 2014)

If the battle for civilization comes down to the wimps versus the barbarians, the barbarians are going to win. Thomas Sowell

An article on Daniel Pipes Middle East Forum made this point as early as 2007:

It’s Not a Clash of Civilizations, It’s a Clash between the Civilized World and Barbarians

So my point is that we must awaken to true definitions, not only to name the main source of barbaric behavior as radical Islam, but also to define the big picture. This really is good vs. evil. It is a cosmic level fight that will not be won only in physical battles, but must see final triumph of righteousness. Truth is not relative: “your truth and my truth.” Truth is absolute. Our founding fathers understood this and conveyed it clearly in the Declaration of Independence:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,

Two phrases are particularly powerful here. These truths are “self-evident” and they are “endowed by their Creator.” These are absolute truths, above discussion or modification. To deny these points would be to reject civility and choose barbarism and lawlessness.

Civilization depends on mutual agreement and recognition of universal truth, the self-evident obvious observance of absolutes. Most of such truths are recorded in the Judeo/Christian Scriptures. But not only the reading, but the practice of these principles has yielded the progress of civilization. Those nations and Peoples who have followed this heritage have prospered. Those who reject this truth suffer national consequences. Even those who earlier believe and then suspend the practice of the same will equally suffer the dire effects.

These truths have been endowed (gifted) to us by the God of the Bible. He has established order, and we reap the benefits of his benevolence. If pagan faith believes that cows and rats are gods, there will be no meat and the rats infest the granaries. Famine results. It matters what you believe.

Rescue me and deliver me from the hand of foreigners,
Whose mouth speaks lying words,
And whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood—
That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth;
That our daughters may be as pillars,
Sculptured in palace style;
That our barns may be full,
Supplying all kinds of produce;
That our sheep may bring forth thousands
And ten thousands in our fields;
That our oxen may be well laden;
That there be no breaking in or going out;
That there be no outcry in our streets.
Happy are the people who are in such a state;
Happy are the people whose God is Yehovah! Psalm 144:11-15
Yehovah brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect. The counsel of Yehovah stands forever, The plans of His heart to all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is Yehovah, The people He has chosen as His own inheritance. Psalm 33:10-12

The Lone Wolf Myth

24 11 2014

synogogue masssacreCalling an Islamic terrorist a lone wolf is perhaps the most miss-leading media narrative. Today’s journalists seem too lazy to think for themselves and so they just repeat all the other writers ad nauseam with little originality or research. Today I will contradict the lone wolf narrative. It was applied to last week’s massacre of four Rabbis in Jerusalem during morning prayers in their synagogue. Three were dual American-Israeli citizens.

On October 22, I spoke of another false narrative, the idea that terrorism is senseless violence. Here is a quote from that essay, which included my comment about the lone wolf idea.

Aren’t you getting sick of the weak clichés describing terrorism? Again today after the terrorist murder in Canada’s capital city, the vapid  news commentator condemned the “senseless violence” of the Muslim terrorist murderer. I don’t object to the phrase simply because it is a cliché, but because it is WRONG!

It makes perfect sense in the mind of a Muslim literalist. It is what Mohammed did. It is what the Koran, Sunnah and Hadith teach….These “lone wolf” actors are NOT “becoming radicalized,” they are becoming converted. They have adopted a complete belief system and follow it as their deadly sincere faith! It is a death cult, and the diametric opposite of Jesus and the Biblical God of love and life, Yehovah. (Elisha Vision Commentary 10-22-14)

The lone wolf myth is dangerous because it minimizes the motivation of the terrorist and divorces him from the underlying ideology that justifies his barbaric actions. I urge you to read a column from Israel National News that really nails this lone wolf myth. Here are a few quotes, but please click on the link and read the entire piece. It is well worth your time.

The perpetrators of Arab/Muslim and Palestinian terrorism are not “lone wolves”, as they have been described, but by-products of a centuries-old intolerant ideology, supported today by educational and religious indoctrination….

At 7:01 am on Tuesday, November 18th, two Palestinian terrorists, Ghassan and Uday Abu Jamal, entered the Kehilat Yaakov synagogue in the Har Nof neighborhood of Jerusalem where about a dozen people were praying. The two were carrying a gun, a meat cleaver, and an axe. Seven minutes later (to the cries of “Allahu Akbar!”) four of the worshippers were dead, a Druze police officer who tried to rescue them suffered mortal injuries and several others were severely wounded….

In response to the gruesome axe murders and shootings, Palestinians in Gaza and the ‘West Bank‘ erupted in spontaneous celebrations by handing out cookies and candy, dancing in the streets, honking horns, flaunting axes, setting off firecrackers, cheering, holding up posters “honoring” the two “martyrs”, and displaying V-for-victory signs just as they did in the celebrations that followed the September 11th terror attacks and the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15th, 2013. The Palestinian Authority referred to the slaughter as a “heroic operation at a religious Zionist institute”….

The Kehilat Yaakov terrorists and others like them were not driven by socio-economic or human rights issues, but by a fanatical worldview which loathes civil liberties and considers Western freedoms to be an abomination. They were motivated and educated by the belief that their murderous actions against Jews would bestow upon them the honorable title of “shahid” (martyr) and that they were fulfilling a holy Islamic mission by murdering Jews and advancing the commandment of jihad….

The Palestinian Authority’s 7th grade textbook “Our Beautiful Language” states: “We shall sow Palestine with shahids (martyrs), skeletons and skulls; we shall paint the face of Palestine with blood. … We are returning home to the plains and mountains (of pre-1967 Israel) led by jihad flags, by bloody struggles, and by the willingness to sacrifice ourselves as martyrs.” (Israel National News – Debunking the “Lone Wolf” Myth)

“So do not be afraid, Jacob, my servant; do not be dismayed, Israel,” says Yehovah. “For I will bring you home again from distant lands, and your children will return from their exile. Israel will return to a life of peace and quiet, and no one will terrorize them. Jeremiah 30:10

I Joined the Dry Bones Family

17 11 2014

Dry Bones member D14B16_1I just joined the Dry Bones family and you can, too. This has been my favorite Israeli political cartoon since my first visit to Israel in 1984. It was in the Jerusalem Post daily paper. Yaakov Kirschen makes a compelling case for fighting antisemitism with cartoons in what he describes as “a post literate world.” (Click here to join!)

The Problem: Israel is being boycotted, delegitimized, and defamed!! There is now a massive rise in antisemitism world-wide. Support for Christians and Jews in the Middle East has collapsed. Western campuses are hostile to our younger generation. We are shocked and frustrated. The situation is dire, urgent, and obvious, but an effective response seems to elude us.

Let’s Begin:The beginning of an effective response needs to be an understanding of “post literacy”.  This was once a bi-polar world. People were either literate (they could read and write) or they were illiterate (they were unable to read or write). That world is gone. The targets of our messages are now post literate. (they can read and write but they prefer not to). Letter writing has disappeared. Emails beyond a few lines are ignored. Texting, tweeting, and the rise of the Instagram are the evolutionary result of this post literacy.

Dry Bones:The increase in importance of the cartoon is yet another step in this evolution. . . . And, in part, explains the wild popularity of Dry Bones cartoons in the digital world. If you are a Zionist you have probably shared or received Dry Bones cartoons.

We Are The Answer:The time has come to organize and expand the Dry Bones response. We want you to join and support us. Whether you are a young student or a concerned retiree, join us. Whether you are Jewish or not we offer you a way to fight back. Join us. We are the answer. Yaakov Kirschen, Dry Bones

Hamas’ Goal and Yehovah’s Response

14 11 2014

During the summer Gaza conflict, I wrote about the goal of Hamas. Today I am re-posting that blog. But this text from Zechariah tells Yehovah God’s response to those who would destroy Israel.

This message concerning the fate of Israel came from Yehovah: “This message is from Yehovah, who stretched out the heavens, laid the foundations of the earth, and formed the human spirit. I will make Jerusalem like an intoxicating drink that makes the nearby nations stagger when they send their armies to besiege Jerusalem and Judah. On that day I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock. All the nations will gather against it to try to move it, but they will only hurt themselves. On that day,” says Yehovah, “I will cause every horse to panic and every rider to lose his nerve. I will watch over the people of Judah, but I will blind all the horses of their enemies. And the clans of Judah will say to themselves, ‘The people of Jerusalem have found strength in Yehovah of Heaven’s Armies, their God.'” Zechariah 12:1-4

WHAT IS THE GOAL OF HAMAS?

Great-Quotes-056genocide  (jĕnˈə-sīdˌ) noun

The systematic and planned extermination of an entire national, racial, political, or ethnic group. (definition)

Here is a quote from the Preamble to the Hamas Charter: ″Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it″.

No further comment is necessary. But please let me suggest a different way to view the “death toll” statistics that keep rolling across our TV screens. Roughly 70 Israelis and 1700 Gazans were killed in the last four weeks. The emphasis was on civilian deaths. Israel was charged with genocide by many accusers.

However, what if you measured these statistics by actual intent?

Note the definition of genocide: “planned extermination.”

Israel’s goal was to kill zero civilians. Hamas’ goal was to kill as many civilians as possible, including their own (by human shield strategy and by errant rockets of their own).

Hamas Sermon from the Gaza Strip: Our Doctrine Entails Exterminating the Jews

Using a relatively modest desire to kill 10 civilians per rocket @ 3,000 fired in four weeks, Hamas hope to kill 30,000 Israeli civilians. Does the fact that they were bad at it, or that Israel had great defense change their intent?

Israel’s goal was zero civilians killed. Do you think for one minute that if Israel wanted to kill all Gazans that they could not do it in four weeks? Mercifully, it appears that this round of war is ending. We thank God for that. But the motive of Hamas has not changed. They would kill all Jews if they could. That, my friends, is genocide.

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

Golda Meir (fourth Prime Minister of Israel): “Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.”

Benjamin Netanyahu (current Prime Minister of Israel): “The truth is that if Israel were to put down its arms there would be no more Israel. If the Arabs were to put down their arms there would be no more war.”

I would like to call today’s post, “News you can use!”

Temple Mount in Focus

(AP Photo/Majdi Mohammed)

We have now entered the countdown to the clash of civilizations over the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. With US elections over, much attention will now turn to Jerusalem. But even more specifically, the focus is that 32 disputed acres of flat mountain top where the glorious temple of Solomon stood over 3,000 years ago. Today it is claimed by Islam and administered by the Wakf Muslim religious authority (under Israeli sovereignty). Christians and Jews are not allowed to pray there! This is enforced by Israeli police even though freedom of religion is guaranteed by the Israeli constitution.

The Israel news is narrowing its focus more and more on this tiny hot-spot. Jordan is threatening to end its peace treaty with Israel. Even Egypt is calling for regional deterioration. Of course the Palestinians are calling for an uprising (intifada) to defend the al-Aqsa mosque which occupies the south end of the mount. 

The Lord Jesus gave me a simple illustration of the prophetic timing we have now entered. Israel became a nation in 1948. Viewing this wonderful prophetic restoration through a camera would require a wide-angle lens. The scope was the return of land itself, a modern miracle.

Then, in 1967, Israel won the Six-Day War supernaturally and regained the Old City area of Jerusalem. That camera view would use a normal lens. It was the direct fulfillment of Jesus’ own prophetic words: From 70 AD till June, 1967, Jerusalem was ruled my Gentiles. From that date till now it is under Israeli sovereignty.

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

We have now entered the third and last change of our camera lens. We now need a zoom lens because God’s focus is directly on the temple mount. Recent events are piling up with escalating frequency. One of the more serious was the attempted assassination of a vocal Israeli activist, Yehuda Glick, who was known for praying on the mount defying the ban.

This is even more evidence that we are in the end times. We should react with prayer and enlist as watchmen on the wall for Jerusalem. One thing is certain. God is in control and His purpose will be accomplished. Not one promise He has spoken will fail to come to pass:

Behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth. And you know in all your hearts and in all your souls that not one thing has failed of all the good things which Yehovah your God spoke concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one word of them has failed. Joshua 23:14

Personal Note: My friend, Dale Suggs, asked me to share a request for help in publishing his newest book, Jesus is NOT in the Quran Volume 2. Here is the link for supporting him: http://www.gofundme.com/gqj1rc

NOT Senseless Violence

22 10 2014
Chaya Zisel Baron, baby murdered by a Jerusalem terrorist

Chaya Zisel Baron, baby murdered by a Jerusalem terrorist

Aren’t you getting sick of the weak clichés describing terrorism? Again today after the terrorist murder in Canada’s capital city, the vapid  news commentator condemned the “senseless violence” of the Muslim terrorist murderer. I don’t object to the phrase simply because it is a cliché, but because it is WRONG!

It makes perfect sense in the mind of a Muslim literalist. It is what Mohammed did. It is what the Koran, Sunnah and Hadith teach. And it also happens to be the most sensational form of Islam today. It’s “what’s happening” if you want to prove your Muslim masculinity and supremacism. It you happen to hate women, this is the cause for you.

I don’t need to hear about moderate Muslims. First, we don’t hear from them much. Second, they are not the Muslims driving the bus. The percentage distribution is irrelevant. A call has gone out around the earth: “The Caliphate is rising! Come join the Caliphate!” However premature it may be, this call has drawn radical Islamists from 80 countries to join Isis in Syria. (I believe this is premature because the real Caliphate will actually look good and peaceful, at first, to most folks, yet with the same foundational intent to conquer the world for Islam and establish Sharia everywhere.)

?????????????????????Also today, a Hamas terrorist intentionally drove his car into a crowd of Israelis in Jerusalem, wounding eight and murdering a 3 month old baby.

Senseless is not the right word. It empties the heinous act of intent.

These people have not lost their minds. They know exactly what and why and who they murder. It creates terror. It advances Islam. They are honored as holy warrior martyrs. And, by the way, they get to go to heaven, claim 70 virgins and guarantee the salvation of 70 family members. To them it’s a no-brainer. I mean it is completely logical to them.

So let’s stop minimizing terror. It is evil. It is horrible. And it is institutionalized. It is a political/religious system of supremacism. These “lone wolf” actors are NOT “becoming radicalized,” they are becoming converted. They have adopted a complete belief system and follow it as their deadly sincere faith! It is a death cult, and the diametric opposite of Jesus and the Biblical God of love and life, Yehovah.

Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:7-10

Words That Kill

16 09 2014

Mustard SeedFor many years of ministry I have emphasized choosing our words wisely. Our faith anchors our confession based on actual words: “believe in your heart and confess with your mouth.” I also teach that words carry blessings or curses and we must intentionally use that power to bless. But the 21st Century arena has moved from spiritual principles to life and death confrontations in the political real world. People are beheaded for their faith or for refusing another’s faith. For Islamic terrorists, it really does come down to demanding a few words from us, capitulating our faith with a confession to follow Islam instead of Jesus. Some forsake their faith to literally “save their neck.” Are you ready for this? We have now entered the true “war of words” between the righteous and the wicked:

By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted, But it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked. Proverbs 11:11 

There is striking example of this just over our Texas border where the cartels ruled. Juarez, across the border from El Paso, was called the murder capital of the world by CBS News in 2010. Today it is becoming a peaceful town through a revival, not through large evangelistic meetings, but through marketplace ministry where everyday believers practice Proverbs 11:11 and “pastor” their own sphere of business, school and government. Watch the video of this exciting transformation by Jesus. Transform Our World with Ed Silvoso.

Nowhere is this more obvious than the forceful declarations of the wicked terrorist groups, now reproducing as a metastasized cancer around the world today. The recent beheading videos of two Americans and one Brit are a tragic evil. But what is the goal of the terrorist? It is fear and terror. Kill two Americans and evoke terror in 300 million Americans? That is a highly efficient strategy. And it is nothing new. The devil has always used that method. Threats and accusations and horrible images spoken into the mind of man. The devil must be beside himself with the opportunity presented by actual video images instantly sent around the globe via the internet.

Anti-Semitism is another example of words that kill. False blood-libel accusations have incited mobs to kill Jews for centuries. They are called Christ-killers and accused of killing Christian children for blood to use for Passover. These untrue taunts have led to the deaths of millions of Jews in history, culminating in Hitler’s holocaust. Yet, today there is a new wave of Islamic anti-Semitism sweeping the world, especially Europe; and rising in America. There were 302 incidents in the UK in July alone! 

This time they are led by radical Muslims. But they are not only coming for the Jews, but also for the Christians, and for all non-Muslims. There is a saying in the Middle East: “First the Saturday people, then the Sunday people.” My point today is not to inflame fear, but to stir up the Holy Spirit in you to stand for Yehovah God in these perilous times. Count the cost and make up your mind now to live for Jesus with no fear. We have assurance of our salvation (Yeshua). We do not cower in fear, but rather wake up, stand up and most importantly, speak up for the Kingdom the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; the faithful God of Israel! In some ways it may be harder to live for Jesus than to die for Him. Make your decision now. Settle it between you and God and then shout it from the rooftops!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for America in the valley of decision.

Daniel Tragerman – 4 years old

23 08 2014

daniel-3Red and yellow, black and white, all are precious in His sight. This precious little boy, Daniel Tragerman, was murdered intentionally by Hamas Friday afternoon while at home with his Israeli parents. He was playing in a tent inside his living room when a mortar exploded outside. It was shrapnel from the blast that took his life. I don’t have many words right now.

But it must be understood that Hamas fires their rockets at kindergartens and homes with the goal of killing Jewish children. That is never true of Israel’s Defense Forces. Many precious Palestinian children have also died, as human shields for Hamas, because it needs high death numbers to influence world opinion. Shame on them. Yehovah God will judge!

As we tuck in our little ones tonight, say a prayer for all the little ones on both sides of the clash of civilizations. Yes, it is also a clash of religions, one views life as sanctified by a loving God, and the other worships death as the “highest good”.

Hamas has now admitted that it was their group that kidnapped and murdered the three Israeli teens in June that caused the present escalation of thousands of Hamas rockets fired at Israel’s civilians.

“Now therefore, listen to me, my children,
For blessed are those who keep my ways.
Hear instruction and be wise,
And do not disdain it.
Blessed is the man who listens to me,
Watching daily at my gates,
Waiting at the posts of my doors.
For whoever finds me finds life,
And obtains favor from Yehovah;
But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul;
All those who hate me love death.” Proverbs 8:32-36

The Ironic Genocidal Islamist Name Game

8 08 2014

Dry bones name game

One goal of the enemy coalition in Psalm 83 (overview) is to cause the name of Israel to be forgotten. This is quite ironic.

Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, and do not be still, O God! For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; and those who hate You have lifted up their head. They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, and consulted together against Your sheltered ones. They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” For they have consulted together with one consent; they form a confederacy against You: Psalm 83:1-5
Where is the irony? I have said before that Satan is not creative. He can only pervert what God says or does. So where did he get the idea of stomping out the name of Israel? He stole the idea from God’s judgment against all the false pagan gods.
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
The devil is always trying to make a name for himself, even all the way back in history to the tower of Babel. All of these Islamist terror groups come from the same demonic source. And they all have their own names. Even individual terrorists are fond of claiming many names or double names. Mahmoud Abbas, for example, is also called Abu Mazen.
Yet, when the dust settles Israel lives and these terrorists will be totally forgotten! Hallelujah!
Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 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 2:9-11

The Hamas Mouse that Roared

24 07 2014

The_Mouse_That_Roared_British_PosterFrance to Give $14.8 Million to Gaza

Aid money, following $47 million US aid package, to go to Gaza – despite the risk it will end up in Hamas’s coffers. Neither addressed where the aid money will be used, exactly – nor the recent scandal with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), which found two Hamas rocket arsenals in its schools since the beginning of the operation and then reportedly gave them back to Hamas.  INN 7-24-14
You can’t make this stuff up. Hamas has fired over 2,000 rockets at Israel in the last two weeks targeting civilians, using their own civilians as human shields. Yet the sappy sympathetic liberals in Western nations are sending millions of dollars to….wait for it….Hamas! The war is still ongoing and they are sending money to the enemy of freedom and liberty.
Our own President gets in on the fun by banning US airlines from serving Israel’s international airport. This while worse conflicts around the world do not see “no-fly zones” imposed. The economic hit on tourism could be devastating for Israel. Hamas rejoices in their “great victory”.
Some of you may be old enough to remember the 1959 movie starring Peter Sellers: The Mouse That Roared. It is a satire based on the premise that a tiny country facing bankruptcy declares war on the United States. They know they will lose and then receive US foreign aid to bail them out of debt. It is a classic Peter Sellers comedy. Yet, here we are in 2014, and it is not a comic movie. It is Hamas reality. Has the world gone mad?
And He said: ‘I will hide My face from them, I will see what their end will be, For they are a perverse generation, Children in whom is no faith. Deuteronomy 32:20
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. Isaiah 19:14
Therefore the law is powerless, and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous; therefore perverse judgment proceeds. Habakkuk 1:4
Then Jesus answered and said, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to Me.” Matthew 17:17
…that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, Philippians 2:15

Hear the word of Yehovah to Israel:
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. “Behold, all those who were incensed against you shall be ashamed and disgraced; they shall be as nothing, and those who strive with you shall perish. You shall seek them and not find them—Those who contended with you. Those who war against you shall be as nothing, as a nonexistent thing. For I, Yehovah your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.Isaiah 41:11-12
Hear our prayer to Yehovah, God of Heaven’s armies:
Don’t let my treacherous enemies rejoice over my defeat. Don’t let those who hate me without cause gloat over my sorrow. They don’t talk of peace; they plot against innocent people who mind their own business. They shout, “Aha! Aha! With our own eyes we saw him do it!” O Yehovah, you know all about this. Do not stay silent. Do not abandon me now, O Lord. Wake up! Rise to my defense! Take up my case, my God and my Lord. Declare me not guilty, O Yehovah my God, for you give justice. Don’t let my enemies laugh about me in my troubles. Don’t let them say, “Look, we got what we wanted! Now we will eat him alive!” May those who rejoice at my troubles be humiliated and disgraced. May those who triumph over me be covered with shame and dishonor. But give great joy to those who came to my defense. Let them continually say, “Great is Yehovah, who delights in blessing his servant with peace!” Then I will proclaim your justice, and I will praise you all day long. Psalm 35:19-28 NLT

(As is my custom, 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!)

It gives the term “safe house” a whole new meaning, doesn’t it?

Below is the outline of an excellent article exposing the mistakes made by biased journalists covering the current conflict with Hamas (and all Israeli wars for that matter). Please click on the link for the full article.

WHAT REPORTERS NEED TO KNOW during Operation Protective Edge

Mistake #1: Assuming that all Gaza casualties are the result of Israeli airstrikes

Mistake #2: Assuming that Gaza casualties and damage are the direct result of Israeli airstrikes

Mistake #3: Believing that victims are civilian when they are not

Finally, here is a great article about Hamas firing at Israel’s nuclear reactor at Dimona.

Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:31-32

 “If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.” John 14:15-18

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Psalm 83 and Caliphate Revisited

14 06 2014

MC900030073The Muslim Caliphate and The Psalm 83 War: The Domino Theory Ends Here

(This is a reprint of my post of February 19, 2011. It seems more appropriate than ever.)

We are now seeing the dominoes falling at a dizzying pace. Where will it lead? Where will it stop? The final result will be the resurrection of the Islamic Caliphate. The entire Islamic Empire will be revived from Indonesia to Morocco, and from Turkey and the “stans” to the Sudan and Somalia. This will transpire in just a few years.

How can such a monumental event occur so fast? There are two forces, one physical, one spiritual. There is a physical theory of dominoes falling called “domino amplifier” which has proven that each domino can be larger than the previous. This can be demonstrated by starting with a normal one and, in 29 steps, knocking down the last one as tall as a skyscraper. See Domino Amplifier (scroll down to Article 1.68 on this link).

Thus what has already begun in Gaza, Lebanon, Tunisia and now Egypt, Syria and Iraq, will continue to amplify until the fall of the Arab world to radical Islam and the revived Caliphate.

The second force is spiritual. Radical Islam is above all else a spiritual movement. By this I mean that it is a political ideology on steroids. If Communism was not godless it may have conquered the world. Ideas are not enough. But ideas with fanatical allegiance to an apocalyptic deity will indeed threaten the entire world. Now couple these facts with the Biblical narrative.

Psalm 83 is a core prophecy that must be understood. The first five verses explain the motive of these enemies: hatred of the God of the Bible who is worshipped by both Christians and Jews. Since God is out of reach, they must indirectly attack His chosen people Israel, even to the extent “that the name of Israel be remembered no more.”

Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, And do not be still, O God! For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; And those who hate You have lifted up their head. They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, And consulted together against Your sheltered ones. They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” For they have consulted together with one consent; They form a confederacy against You (Psalm 83:1-5).

The Psalm continues by listing the actual attacking countries. The prophecy stands alone, but is even more profound when compared with a more common prophecy of the Gog and Magog War recorded in Ezekiel 38. This later war also lists the countries involved. The amazing fact is that none of the Psalm 83 protagonist countries are listed in Ezekiel’s prophecy. This leads to the conclusion that Israel actually wins the Psalm 83 war and occupies much of the surrounding territory. The first Israel land promise to Abraham was “from the river of Egypt to the great river Euphrates” (Genesis 15:18)

Another distinction between the prophecies is that the Psalm 83 nations in the closer ring around the land of Israel are all Arab Muslim nations. The nations remaining are all non-Arab Muslims. It is this larger circle of nations that fulfills the Biblical antichrist prophecies. The Islamic Empire will rise again and be governed under Sharia Law by the Caliphate. This revived empire will be ruled by the Islamic messianic figure called the Mahdi (or Twelfth Imam).

My friend Walid Shoebat, an ex-Muslim and former terrorist, expressed the process clearly in his excellent book: God’s War on Terror: Islam, Prophecy and the  Bible (p.81; Top Executive Media, 2008). “Biblically, the Empire of the Antichrist will not be a new empire; rather it will be the revival of a previously great empire that will have suffered what the Bible calls a ‘fatal head wound’. (Revelation 13:3) But the wound will be healed and the empire will be revived from the dead as it were: ‘And the beast [Antichrist Empire] which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority.. And I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain and his fatal wound healed. And the whole world was amazed and followed after the beast.” (Revelation 13:2-3) “Today the Caliphate exists only in the desires of hundreds of millions of Muslims worldwide who want to revive this beast that was slain March 3, 1924. The last Caliphate – the Ottoman Caliphate – was officially abolished by the first President of the Turkish Republic, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. The abolition of the Caliphate is profoundly significant for our study. For it was on this day that the Islamic Empire, led by a sitting Caliph for over fourteen hundred years suffered a fatal head wound. The position of “head of state” of the Islamic Empire was severed.”

The part that jumps out in Walid’s quote is the interpretation of the fatal head wound. By applying that verse to the line of Caliphs, we come full circle to our conclusion. The Middle East dominoes are falling. It is now unstoppable until the rise of the final Caliph and his Caliphate over the Muslim world and however many other nations that succumb. Ignorance and apathy are blinding many from this truth. It is time for the West to open their eyes to the inevitable realities. (READ MORE)

Israel Benghazi Cartoon

31 05 2014

Dry Bones Benghazi

 

The United States is deploying an amphibious assault ship with about 1000 marines off the coast of Libya in case the US embassy has to be evacuated, a US defence official says.

The USS Bataan was to be in the area “in a matter of days,” said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, on Tuesday (local time).

The move was described as “precautionary” in case conditions in Libya, where militia battles have plunged the country into anarchy, worsen and require the embassy’s evacuation. The State Department said last week the embassy in Tripoli was operating normally despite an offensive launched against Islamist militias by a dissident general, Khalifa Haftar. (more)

Who is the Islamophobe?

10 04 2014

Ayaan-Hirsi-Ali-VVD.NL-1200x1600“This makes my blood boil!” My father used that expression when he was upset at some major injustice. The issue I share today is the first time I choose to use this expression. It makes my blood boil, when I hear what Brandeis University has done to one of the truly great heroes of the century. Could there be a more socially evil way of dishonoring someone than to offer an unsolicited HONORARY DEGREE (along with an invitation to speak at Commencement), and then take it back? I thought an honorary degree had something to do with honor. Hello? That is exactly what has just happened at Brandeis University. Who is the Islamophobe? It is not this indomitable lady, it is the University. They fear Islam. Shame on Brandeis University.

Here is the background. Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the outspoken activist, author, filmmaker and lecturer was supposed to be awarded an honorary degree at Brandeis University, but the school changed its mind to protect the sensibilities of its Muslim students. The protest against her began with a single petition from a Muslim student and quickly spread throughout the campus. Ali is a former Muslim who now champions Islam unchained. Now a Fellow at Harvard, she has been on the run most of her life. In the Netherlands, she wrote the script and provided the voice for “Submission” a film severely critical of Islam’s treatment of women. Her producer, Theo Van Gogh, was murdered and no place was safe for Ali. She became a fugitive until moving to the USA. 

(This summary leaves out that she escaped from Somalia after female genital mutilation, rape, beatings and terror to find a life and education and then rise as a member of Parliament in the Netherlands for several years. When her producer was murdered a note on him warned that she was next! She lives under Muslim fatwas calling for her murder.) Yet she continues to speak out and is one of nine women featured in the documentary Honor Diaries:

Honor Diaries explores violence against women in honor-based societies, with particular focus on female genital mutilation (FGM), honor violence and honor killings, early and forced marriage, and lack of access to education. The film profiles nine women’s rights activists with origins in the Muslim (and non-Muslim) world, and follows their efforts to affect change, both within their communities and beyond. Honor Diaries premiered at the Chicago International Film Festival in October 2013 and won the Interfaith Award for Best Documentary at the St. Louis International Film Festival in November 2013.

There is a great Op-Ed at Israel National News by Jack Engelhard. Please read it. I was so moved that I wrote a comment, which is relatively rare for me. The Kelly File on Fox News has also done a great job this week covering this story. Click here for the six-minute video interview by Megyn Kelly. (Also, another good article on Newsmax, for you avid readers).

Dis-Honor Killings

1 04 2014

GAza-Women-300x199“Honor Killings and honor violence” are the dirty secret of the Muslim world. I can’t think of a more hypocritical concept. Your daughter is raped, so you kill her to save your family’s honor? Really?!! This is not an isolated problem. Consider the following statistics from the United Nations on The Kelly File, Fox News March 31, 2012. (Click on the date to view the 10 minute video clip from her show last night.)

  • 125 million women and girls suffered female genital mutilation in Africa and Middle East since 1989
  • Over 60 million girls worldwide are child brides, married before age 18
  • Est: Annual worldwide number of “honor killing” victims may be as high as 5,000 women                                                                                                                                                                                    Source: United Nations (via Fox News, The Kelly File)

Narrow down the field to the Palestinian Territories and consider the multiplied millions of Western dollars propping up Mahmoud Abbas and his demand for a state. Especially notice the headline of the following article:

Palestinian Honor Killings Skyrocket, Israel Blamed: Two teenage Palestinian girls were killed in separate incidents last month in so-called “honour killings”, revenge attacks carried out most often by family members against women suspected of “immoral sexual conduct”.
The deaths sparked protests with more than 100 people assembling outside the general attorney’s office in Gaza on March 3, demanding violence against Palestinian women come to a halt. Five women died in honour killings in the Palestinian territories in 2011. That number rose to 13 in 2012 and doubled to 26 last year. (Eight killed in first three months of 2014 would project to 32 this year.)

…A survey by the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics from 2011 showed that 35 percent of married women in Gaza had been exposed to physical violence by their husband within the past year, and that 40 percent of unmarried women had been physically abused by a household member.(Click here for full article.)

Wake up, folks! It matters what you believe. The Bible is the foundation of the Judeo/Christian culture of life. Islam is the religion of the sword, a culture of death. Violence is the solution in such a culture. Just Google this phrase and you will see countless reports of Muslims saying these very words: “We love death more than you love life.”

All I am saying is summed up perfectly in this Bible quote from the God of Israel:

“Now therefore, listen to me, my children, for blessed are those who keep my ways. Hear instruction and be wise, and do not disdain it. Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates,waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoever finds me finds life, and obtains favor from Yehovah; But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul; all those who hate me love death.” Proverbs 8:32-36

Itching Ears: Iran at 35

The following is an excerpt from Joel Rosenberg’s Blog:

(Washington, D.C., February 11, 2014) — Today marks the 35th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution in Iran. Hundreds of thousands of Iranians turned out on the streets to mark the occasion. Many denounced America as the “Great Satan.” Many also shouted, “Death to Israel,” which they believe is the “Little Satan.”

The fall of the Shah in 1979 and the rise of the Ayatollah Khomeini was a game-changing moment in the modern history of the Middle East. Iran suddenly shifted from a friend and ally of the United States (and even quietly allied with Israel), to a serious enemy. It started with the seizure of our Embassy and taking our diplomats hostage for 444 days.

But it has gone much worse over time. Iran has been implicated in killing Americans in the Beirut bombing of our Marine barracks, and at the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia. They have funded, trained and armed terror groups around the world. Now they are actively developing a nuclear weapons program even as the world refuses to take decisive action to stop them. (Joel Rosenberg)

In addition to “Death to Israel” and “Down with Israel” signs, were many saying “Death to the USA” and “We are eager for the options on the table.” The last one refers to the Obama Administration’s lame warning: “All options are on the table” which weakly suggests the military option. Check out this excellent video interview with K T McFarland this morning on Fox News. She believes we can beat Iran economically if we keep up the pressure: “They would be so busy worrying about their NECKS, they wouldn’t have time to worry about their NUKES.” K T McFarland worked for President Ronald Reagan and wrote the first draft of his famous “Star Wars” speech.

ITCHING EARSFor the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 2 Timothy 4:3

The real problem is not with Iran, it is with the Western nations. President Obama is so averse to force and so subservient to Islam, that he insists on a diplomacy that has emboldened Iran. The Iran “negotiations” are only to determine how much we will give up to Iran for this round of talks, allowing them to continue their march toward nukes.

I know that this “itching ears” verse is usually applied to Christians, but it certainly describes the present Iranian threat. Their new president is an expert at tickling itching ears. We need to pray for our leaders to stand up to Islam. Pray especially for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He is a Bible believer. Pray that he will first hear the voice of Yehovah God, and then that he will have courage to stand for God’s purposes for Israel.
