The Monkey Trap and the Arab World

23 05 2019

Dry Bones monkey trap

The Arab world just won’t let go of the apple of antisemitism, so they can’t slide their hand out of the trap. If they would just drop the apple, they could then easily slide their hand out of the trap and be free. But, apparently, like the monkey, they can’t bring themselves to let go. (Dry Bones Israeli cartoonist Yaakov Kirschen.)

Golda Meir, one of Israel’s greatest Prime Ministers, is often quoted as having said:

  • Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.

So, why do the Arabs hate the Jews so much? Antisemitism is certainly rampant, but the true source is the spirit of anti-Christ. Right from the beginning, Satan has been trying to kill Yehovah’s plan of a Messiah to save the world. From the garden of Eden, to Herod killing the babies of Bethlehem, to the Holocaust; Satan has been killing God’s people in His coup effort to overthrow God Himself.

The Messiah Yeshua came, but Satan is still trying to kill all of the spiritual sons and daughters of God who believe in the Messiah. Even after the Holocaust, Satan is trying to destroy Israel because her miracle resurrection again defeats the devil’s intentions.

I keep coming back to those who love truth and those who don’t. God made it quite clear in Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians.

For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. 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 2:7-12

Make no mistake, only those who love the truth will live forever in God’s glorious Kingdom. We must humble ourselves before the revealed truth that comes to us from the Holy Spirit in direct witness to the spoken truth and to Scripture.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, pray for rain and pray for the glorious light of truth to be seen and embraced by all truth lovers.

Abortion Constitutional Right?

16 05 2019

bernie-sandersBernie Sanders tweeted this week that abortion is a constitutional right. Really? … Only in a bizzaro, upside-down world. Have you ever heard of the “right to life” movement? Where did they get their catchy slogan? Oh wait, the constitution, or more specifically 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. (Declaration of Independence 2nd paragraph)

There are greatly profound words here. These truths are undeniable rights.

  1. They are obvious (self-evident). An earlier draft said “sacred and undeniable!
  2. These truths are equally granted to everyone (no caste system here).
  3. These rights come from the CREATOR (the living God who is the source).
  4. These truths belong to everyone and cannot be taken away or transferred (unalienable).

Then the three classic examples are given in ascending order. Life itself is first (obviously!) or the other two don’t exist. Life is granted by the CREATOR and it is guaranteed by the good government constituted by the founders and expressed in the Declaration. Government exists to preserve this most basic right: to LIFE

It is only in life that liberty and happiness may result. For Bernie Sanders to brazenly contradict the specific words of the Declaration of Independence is nothing short of political blasphemy. Abortion has taken the LIFE of 60 million babies since 1973 in America. Talk about genocide!

For years we have talked about Psalm 83 in this blog in the context of Israel’s current threat of war from the bordering nations. But it starts with a transcendent revelation explaining why they attack Israel. They hate God! They only attack Israel because they can’t reach God, so they go after those He loves. Notice the underlined words:

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

Therefore, I submit that abortion is the ultimate rebellion against God, against LIFE itself. May Yehovah God our Father, and His Son Yeshua, have mercy on our land and give us His Holy Spirit!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Palestine-O-Phobia?

3 04 2019

palestinemapjan082019

We have a new phobia used to attack Jews and Christians. It has been confirmed by none other than the Mayor of New York City. Before I start, let me share my opinion about “Islamophobia,” which has been quite useful in intimidating just about everybody from uttering even the slightest criticism of Islam. Now to be sure, a proper attitude should be maintained in all civil discourse, but disagreement and even criticism is a necessary component of a free society (freedom of speech).

Islamophobia by definition means being afraid of Islam. I am not afraid of Islam, I just disagree with its basic tenets of religion and its political form of Sharia. Conflating fear, with a difference of opinion, is a propaganda coup. Again, I. Am. Not. Afraid. In fact, I love muslim people and praise God for the millions who are finding Jesus as the Son of God, and becoming ex-muslims. (My book, Simple Islam, is available on Kindle for a modest price.)

As a Christian (Zionist) I believe that the Messiah came to save all people and loves all people including Muslims. Yet, according to basic Biblical revelation, it requires our assent and embracing of the aforementioned Savior as sent by Yehovah God to provide the salvation the world so desperately needs.

So, back to Palestine-O-Phobia. A New York City Councilman lost his seat on an immigration committee this week because he stated the fact that there is no country of Palestine and never has been one. The mayor demanded that he apologize. Can you take back a true statement?

De Blasio demands apology for ‘there is no Palestine’ statementThere is no state by that name; there is no place by that name. That’s a fact. I did not make it up,” says New York City councilman. (Israel National News)

Where exactly is your ‘Palestine,’ Mayor de Blasio? – He did not play by the rules, as dictated by the Democrats, so New York City Councilman Kalman Yeger has been bounced off the council’s immigration committee. That’s his punishment for saying “there is no Palestine,” and then refusing to apologize, and if they could send him to a Soviet-Mao style “re-education camp,” they would. We don’t have reorientation gulags here yet, but it’s coming, and already exists on campus. Free speech for me, but not for thee. One man speaks up and it’s like he disturbed a wasps-nest.

…since 1964…the ‘Palestinians’ have been the world’s number one concern, even though they have been nothing but a headache and exist in no history books. Nothing to be found about them before June 2, 1964. That’s when the Arab League certified them as the PLO. That’s when they became a ‘people’ — a people still in search of an ancestry. So far, no luck.” (Jack Engelhard Israel National News)

Is It Islamophobic To Deny That ‘Palestine’ Exists?Prior to 1948 and the birth of Israel, the only group that answered to the name “Palestinians” were Jewish residents of the British Mandate for Palestine. Non-Jews who lived there considered themselves Arabs, not Palestinians, because there had never in history been a separate Palestinian Arab political entity or, prior to the birth of modern Zionism, a national movement that represented the ambitions of such a group. (Prophecy News Watch)

Yet, even on the lie that “there is a country called Palestine”, some accuse of Islamophobia. There seems to be no limit on the outlandish claims. Let’s pray that cooler heads prevail, or better yet, pray that the revealed truth of the Bible will be received by all who love the truth.

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

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain. (Thank God for this week’s rain!)

Dry Bones- Israel’s Political Comic Strip Since 1973

18 03 2019

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

Dry Bones sick

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

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

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

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

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





Pope Kisses Grand Imam of Islam

9 02 2019

PopeUAE4 Kissing Grand Imam of Al-Azhar

Pope Kissing Grand Imam of Sunni Islam

Yes. He. Did. This is the Grand Imam Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb of Egypt’s Al-Azhar Universtiy. He is considered to be the most important imam in Sunni Islam. He has stated multiple times that Muslims who convert to Christianity should be killed.

The leading voice for over a billion Muslims states that apostasy is a crime punishable by death and that human rights and sexual liberty are diseases. Link: Grand Imam on YouTube 4 min. 13 secs.

Pope Francis Tells Islamic Imam Who Wants to Kill Christian Converts, “You’re my brother…” – El-Tayeb affirmed on his television show during the 2016 Ramadan celebration, “Contemporary apostasy presents itself in the guise of crimes, assaults, and grand treason, so we deal with it now as a crime that must be opposed and punished…. Those learned in Islam [al-fuqaha] and the imams of the four schools of jurisprudence consider apostasy a crime and agree that the apostate must either renounce his apostasy or else be killed.“ (Video link above)

The Pope kissed a notorious Islamist anti-SemiteFrancis kissed an anti-Semite and an Islamist of the worst kind. “The solution to Israeli terror lies in the proliferation of suicide attacks that spread terror into the hearts of Allah’s enemies”, said Ahmed al Tayyeb during the Second Intifada. It goes without saying that “the Palestinians have the right to blow up everything they want” (women, children, bars, buses, as long as the victims are Jewish Zionists).

Pope Francis, Leading Imam Sign Covenant Pushing Us Toward One-World Religion –There is a lot of language about peace in this document, but it goes way beyond just advocating for peace. Over and over again, the word “God” is used to simultaneously identify Allah and the God of Christianity. On top of that, the document also boldly declares that “the diversity of religions” that we see in the world was “willed by God”:

“The pluralism and the diversity of religions, color, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, … Therefore, the fact that people are forced to adhere to a certain religion or culture must be rejected,” (document)

My book, Simple Islam says plainly that the god of Islam is not a father and that he has no son, therefore it is a different god from the Bible. (see Proverbs 30:4)

Even more stark are the direct words of Jesus Himself:

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also;” John 14:6-7

The one-world religion is destined to clash head-on with Biblical believers. Where do you stand? There is no middle ground. Don’t be deceived. Love the truth.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and thank Yehovah God for the rain and snow that is finally ending the six-year drought!

4,000 Terrorists

9 01 2019

sarah sandersControversy broke out when White House press secretary Sarah Sanders stated the “4,000 terrorists” number on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace. But the real truth goes way beyond the media twisting of the narrative. They think they have a big story because most were apprehended at airports. But here is my question: If “roughly 10 a day” are blocked by our excellent security at airports, how many are missed at the border where they avoid checkpoints entirely? The media gleefully trumpeted that even Chris Wallace exposed the “lie.” However, it turns out that it is a legitimate reference to a stat from the Department of Homeland Security:

The United States has also put in place measures to dramatically improve screening and vetting of individuals traveling to our shores. We have made applications more rigorous…intensified background checks…put in place new information sharing requirements…launched a new National Vetting Center to better leverage intelligence…and more.

The result is that we are identifying and stopping terror suspects who would otherwise have gone undetected.  In fact, on average, my Department now blocks 10 known or suspected terrorists a day from traveling to or attempting to enter the United States.      US flag signifying that this is a United States Federal Government website   Official website of the Department of Homeland Security

Blocking 4,000 terrorist where we make them pass through high security (facial recognition, hi-tech x-rays, watch lists, etc.) is an unbelievably high number. They know they will be screened and yet they try. Please just think about it. Why wouldn’t they eventually figure out it would be much easier to slip into our country in places with absolutely NO checkpoint or security of any kind?

The “4,000” stat actually confirms the danger of the open border. How many terrorists a day would we catch if every single person had to go through a security screening at the border just like airports? The border should be closed except for secure crossing points. 

Would you leave all your doors and windows open to your own home, and allow anyone enter anytime without your knowledge? Do rich people build walls around their property? Do bears live in the woods? Ridiculous questions!

And Oh, by-the-way, God is a nationalist, not a globalist. Nations were His idea.

He makes peace in your borders, and fills you with the finest wheat. Psalm 147:14

You have set all the borders of the earth; Psalm 74:17a

From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. Acts17:26 NIV

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and give thanks for abundant rain and snow in Israel.

European Union Kills Free Speech

29 10 2018

ECHR

Free speech is not free anymore in Europe. Last week, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), ruled that a woman who spoke a historical truth about Mohammed was guilty of speech violations and must pay a fine of 480 euros plus legal fees.

A European court has ruled that saying bad things about the Muslim prophet Mohammad is verboten, and state punishment is appropriate.
The European Court of Human Rights has ruled a woman convicted by an Austrian court of calling the Prophet Mohammed a paedophile did not have her freedom of speech rights infringed.
 
The woman, named only as Mrs. S, 47, from Vienna, was said to have held two seminars in which she discussed the marriage between the Prophet Mohammad and a six-year old girl, Aisha….Mrs S. was later convicted in February 2011 by the Vienna Regional Criminal Court for disparaging religious doctrines and ordered her to pay a fine of 480 euros plus legal fees. Prophecy News Watch

Calling Prophet Muhammad a pedophile does not fall within freedom of speech: European court The ECHR ruled against an Austrian woman who claimed calling the Prophet Muhammad a pedophile was protected by free speech. The applicant claimed she was contributing to public debate. 

 

SHOULD IT BE ILLEGAL TO CALL MOHAMMED A PAEDOPHILE? The ECHR have decided that truth is not a justification – Should you be allowed to say that the founder of one of the world’s largest religions was a paedophile? According to the European Court of Human Rights the answer is ‘no’. In a decision issued this week the Court in Strasbourg ruled that this statement is defamatory towards the prophet of Islam, ‘goes beyond the permissible limits of an objective debate’ and ‘could stir up prejudice and put at risk religious peace.’ 

To a Muslim, this is basic Sharia Law. Obvious. Blasphemous. In some Muslim countries, it is worthy of the death penalty. We need to be aware that curtailing free speech, even bad speech that we don’t like, will ultimately lead to the loss of free speech itself. If that ever happens in the U.S., our republic will fall. I remind you of a stark warning from the Bible:

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

Pray that our God-given inalienable rights will prevail in America. Also, keep praying for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.
