The Ignorant Fishermen Blog: Where is the Love? (In the Seven Year Tribulation?)

Where is the Love? (In the Seven Year Tribulation?)

The seven year tribulation - which will engulf the world shortly - will absolutely manifest the EXPONENTIAL godlessness, lawlessness and violence of mankind as they heap upon themselves the EXPONENTIAL consequences of their rebellious designs against Almighty God and His moral absolutes for this world(Rom. 1:18-32, Rev. 6-16). The demonic wrath and oppression, the wrath of lawless men, and the ETERNAL Wrath of Almighty God's RIGHTEOUS indignation will be manifested to it's zenith and one attribute that will be completely missing during this seven year period will be the outworking of the love of God among mankind.

"Then shall they deliver you up (Israel) to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because lawlessness shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold." Matt. 24:9-12

There is a Greek word used three different ways which is used to speak of the love of Almighty God. The LOVE of Almighty God seeks only the ETERNAL highest and best for His creation. The depot and sum of all the love of Almighty God the Father is found in the person of His Son the Lord Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17). God's love for fallen mankind is outworked in the sending and giving of His Son (1 John 4:9).

This first Greek word is the word ἀγαπάω (agapaó) which denotes the love of the will, reason and esteem. This word seeks only the highest and best for an individual in light of Almighty God's person and RIGHTEOUSNESS (John 3:16-17). This word is used only once in Revelation 6-19 referring to the new believer in the Messiah during this period who is absolutely sold out to Almighty God's will and "loves" not their life unto death! These are more than willing to make the supreme sacrifice for the testimony of God knowing full well that in their death they will see their Savior and will be risen again at His return at the first resurrection (Rev. 20:4-6). They love their Savior more than their earthly existence and are more than willing to lay it down that Almighty God and ETERNAL life may be manifested to a godless world.

These are more than willing to make the supreme sacrifice for the testimony of God knowing full well that in their death they will see their Savior and will be risen again at His return at the first resurrection.

The second Greek word ἀγάπη (agapé) denotes the highest and best of Almighty God in action and in outworking. This is the Greek word which is used in Matthew 24:12 which states that this "love or charity" of many will grow cold because of EXPONENTIAL lawlessness and the fruits and effects of it during this time period. The outworking of this love can only be applied by those who have received Almighty God's love (i.e., the Lord Jesus Christ - John 3:16-17, 1 John 4:9). It is a love that the unredeemed cannot use since in their unredeemed estate they are currently rejecting Almighty God's love (John 3:16-17). If they reject God's love, how can they allow it to be outworked in their lives and have it overflow unto others? This Greek word is found no where in Revelation 6-19 indicating that the application of it even from the redeemed is very scarce. Imagine a time with all of the EXPONENTIAL global catastrophic events, wars, famines, pestilences and oppression void of Almighty God's love? Thus it will be in this time and no wonder for when a world rejects Almighty God's love which is found in His Son (John 3:16-17), how can they love or want the ETERNAL  highest and best for their fellow man?

Imagine a time with all of the EXPONENTIAL global catastrophic events, wars, famines, pestilences and oppression void of God's love.

The third form of this word is the Greek word agapétos has two special applications: the Beloved, a title of the Messiah (Christ), as beloved beyond all others by the God who sent Him; of Christians, as beloved by God, Christ, and one another (the nation Israel). It is used for the object of Almighty God's ETERNAL highest and best with the benefits of being in the Son of God (the body of Almighty God's Well-Beloved).

This word is no where to be found at all in the book of Revelation let alone in Revelation 6-19. That this Greek word is missing speaks volumes and is further proof and evidence that the Body of Christ(i.e., the Church) is not here during this time and have been Raptured out before this HORRIFIC seven year tribulation begins. If the body of Christ was to go through this Day of Wrath, of a truth we would find the beloved of Almighty God, the Bride of the Messiah mentioned. It is only in the Beloved Son of the Father that a transgressor can be redeemed and placed in the Body of Christand be called beloved. Oh the WONDERS of His grace and mercy and the wonders of our position in Christ (Eph. 1:3, 2:6, Col. 3:1-4)!!!

If the body of Christ was to go through this Day of Wrath, of a truth we would find the beloved of Almighty God, the Bride of the Messiah mentioned.

Today will you be one who enters into this time period without the love of Almighty God? Dear friend we are at the door to this time period and even a blind man can see it! Now is the day of salvation! Now is the time! May you truly want to know the Lord in Spirit and TRUTH and receive the Father's love which is ONLY found in Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17, 1 John 4:9)! May it be so!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Can the Communist Democrats Be Stopped?

Oh How We Need Divine REALITY Today!

My dear friends, oh how we need Divine REALITY today and not delusion and worldly solutions for our EXPONENTIAL global crises. Almighty God cries out to you all day long but will YOU receive Him and His ETERNAL solutions for your life? That is the biggest question ALL must ask themselves in these last days. All these current events and crises of our global community are self induced by the lawless and godless works of fallen man (Rom. 1:18-32, Gal. 6:7). These products of evil men and their consequences are left in place to bring us to the brink of our delusions so that we may come out of our subjective selves and show us our desperate need for the Savior, His pardon, and His RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Almighty God cries out to you all day long but will YOU receive Him and His ETERNAL solutions for your life?

My dear friends, WHAT WILL YOU DO? Will you continue to look for worldly solutions and human saviors or will you finally come to the end of yourself and receive the KING of kings and LORD of lords who is the WONDERFUL COUNSELOR and PRINCE of PEACE (Isa. 9:6-7, Rev. 19:11-16). All ETERNITY is before us and our brief existence in this fallen world is about gone. See the ETERNAL, see the Savior, see the REALITY and you will find the liberation and peace of Almighty God that will calm your hearts in America's last hours.

"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved!" (Acts 16:29)!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!


What Must I Do To Be Saved?

Victory in the Wasteland!

Dearly beloved, we as fallen humanity live in a spiritual wasteland, desolated by demonic darkness and a HORRIFIC battlefield where the fallen host of Heaven seek to corrupt, ruin and destroy Adam's fallen race and usurp the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS REIGN of Almighty God (John 8:44, 2 Cor. 4:3-4, Eph.2:1-3, 6:12, 1 Peter 5:18, Rev. 12:10). We as believers and children of Almighty God the Father (John 1:12, Rom. 8:15, Gal. 4:6, 1 John 3:1-3) - by His grace and mercy - are to be ALL that our Heavenly Father would have us to be for His Glory (Rom. 8:26-29, 1 Cor. 10:31, Eph. 4:11-13).

 We are to be soldiers for His glory, redeeming the time and not idle vacationers and spiritual sloths out of the will of God!

We are to be soldiers for His glory, redeeming the time (Eph. 5:16-17) and not idle vacationers and spiritual sloths out of the will of God (1 Cor. 10:31, Eph. 5:16-17, 2 Tim. 2:3). The bottom line is that it is ALL about ETERNITY and when we possess that REALITY by the Holy Spirit's wondrous working in our hearts and minds we will - in Almighty God's grace and mercy for His PERFECT will in our lives- be unstoppable for Almighty God's glory! The will of Almighty God is the safest place to be in this world and it is there that we have ALL of Almighty God and His ETERNAL blessings and resources; and it is also there where we have ALL of His favor and PERFECT love (Rom. 8:26-29, Eph. 1:3)! With that said my beloved, God speed unto Victory for His glory!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!



The Father's Love Always at Work for You!

God’s ETERNAL and PERFECT LOVE transcends the realms of time and ETERNITY. It seeks ONLY our HIGHEST and BEST in RIGHTEOUSNESS for this world and our ETERNAL future (Rom. 8:28, 1 John 3:1-3, 4:9). It is the Father’s delight to give us good things! And the majority of those good things that He gives us are NOT material blessings but spiritual blessings and wisdom, heavenly discernment, REALITY, TRUTH, ETERNAL and Heavenly perception, earthly provisions, good, sound believing friends in the Lord, Divine protection from the evil one (Satan), opportunities to bring glory to His WONDROUS Name etc... etc.. (Job 23:1-10, Psalm 66:10-12, Rom. 5:1-5, 8:28-39, 1 Cor. 1:30, Phil. 4:19, Col. 1:9-11, James 1:2-6, 1 Peter 1:6-7). Almighty God's ETERNAL wondrous love is always at work seeking the highest and best for the child of God (John 1:12), to exercise us in TRUTH and to cause us to grow in spiritual knowledge and wisdom. No matter what the situation you are in you are not alone and whatever the situation or trial that comes your way use it to develop and mature your relationship to the Father (Rom. 8:28-39)!  See the ETERNAL and count it all joy (Eph. 2:6, Col. 3:1-4, James 1:2-7)!!
God’s ETERNAL and PERFECT LOVE transcends the realms of time and ETERNITY. It seeks ONLY our HIGHEST and BEST in RIGHTEOUSNESS for this world and our ETERNAL future.

This day may we remember WITH ALL OUR BEING that our Heavenly Father and His ETERNAL love and goodness  goes with us in a world that despises and hates His Person and RIGHTEOUSNESS (1 John 3:1). Watch how it will change our day!

THe Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!



There Are No Short Cuts

Many believers today try to manufacture and produce the heavenly joy and experiential wisdom by earthy carnal means, but the end results of these is the eventually collapse and shipwreck of the child of Almighty God on the rocks of unbelief (Matt 7:26-27, 1 Tim 1:19, Heb. 4:2, James 1:22).
Only when the mind of the child of God is absolutely fixed (Is 26:3) and locked onto Almighty God’s NEVER changing Word - by faith with application (Heb. 11:1,6)  - will the child of God enter into a realm of spiritual treasure and knowledge that transcends the confinements of time (Prov 4:7, Rom. 11:3, Col 2:2-3, 1 Peter 1:7). It is only when Almighty God’s Word is applied and exercised in the life of the child of God that spiritual growth will take place (John 15). It does not come cheap and is well worth the price (1 Peter 1:7).
Only when the mind of the child of God is absolutely fixed and locked onto Almighty God’s NEVER changing Word - by faith with application - will the child of God enter into a realm of spiritual treasure and knowledge that transcends the confinements of time.
What ever you are going through today; take this opportunity to trust Almighty God and apply His Word in your life by faith and watch what God will do for you. He will enlarge your mind and heart. He give you a heavenly vision that will help you comprehend and know in your heart that Heaven is our home and that God truly loves you and wants only the highest and best for you (Rom 8:28). The world will see that in deed Christ in you is wise and their famished soul will desire the wonderful fruits of the Spirit in your life (Matt 5:16, Luke 8:8, Gal 5:22-23).
My Beloved, bring along your notebook and pencil and pay close attention to what Almighty God is seeking to teach you. Have faith in God with great thanksgiving! You will NEVER be the same! NEVER!
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!


The Absolute POWER and AUTHORITY of ALMIGHTY GOD'S Two Lamp Stands

For the past five years I have been absolutely fascinated about how little is stated about the Two Witnesses' ministry of Revelation(Rev. 11:3-12), but also have been absolutely blown away with how much in that little given one could write a novel on! The Divine POWER and AUTHORITY given unto them by Almighty God is inconceivable but by faith we must believe it to be so. The key is knowing where they fit into Almighty God's final outworking of Biblical prophecy before the return of the Messiah (Rev.19:11-21).

The Divine POWER and AUTHORITY given unto them by Almighty God is inconceivable but by faith we must believe it to be so.

These two Lamp Stands of Revelation's chief ministry for 1260 days is to prepare and call Israel to Divine repentance unto the Messiah and Lamb of Israel and to tell of things (prophesy) which are at the very door in that day (Rev. 6-19). These two Lamp Stands will be a global BURNING LIGHT radiating out of Jerusalem in RIGHTEOUSNESS and DIVINE AUTHORITY to a world which is engulfed and saturated in horrific spiritual darkness after the removal of Almighty God the Son's seven Lamp Stands (i.e., the Church 1 Thess. 4:13-18, 2 Thess. 2:5-8, Rev. 2-3).

These two Lamp Stands will have ABSOLUTE POWER over the climates the earth to use at their will! These two Lamp stands will have ABSOLUTE POWER over ALL the waters of the earth to use at their will! These two Lamp Stands will have ABSOLUTE POWER to cause ALL plagues (wounding agents) to cause global affliction at their will and finally they will have ABSOLUTE POWER to destroy ANY and ALL individuals, armies or nations which seek their demise by their Divine words (fire - Rev. 11:3-7)! Nothing is to hinder them from their Divine ministry and Almighty God has FULLY equipped them to get the job done. Oh, Glory to Almighty God FOREVER and EVER!! Almighty God so LOVED the world that He is always is reaching out to rebellious mankind to repent and be saved! Oh the depths of the ETERNAL LOVE of Almighty God to a world, which is at war with Him. The Two Lamp Stands are sent in the ETERNAL LOVE of God to a nation, which has crucified their Messiah and have abandoned their covenant with Him (Lev. 26, Deut. 28-32, Matt. 27:22-25, John 1:11, Acts 7, Rom. 9-11) and to a godless gentile world, which has abandoned His mercy and grace (Rom. 1:18-32). It will be by their POWERFUL witness that these Two will be the Divine catalyst for many turning to the risen Messiah of Almighty God who is the Son of Almighty God (Malachi 4:4-6, Psalm 110:1, Rev. 7:13-17, 14:3).

Almighty God will arm these two patriarchs to the teeth for their GREATEST calling and Divine ministry in a day where global technology, lawlessness, godlessness, violence, licentiousness and weaponry has reached its EXPONENTIAL zenith!

In a Christ-less, godless world where the body of Christ has been removed (via the Rapture), there will be nothing to stop the worldwide advancement of the EXPONENTIAL LAWLESSNESS of godless men reaching its EXPONENTIAL zenith (Matt. 24:12, Thess. 2:3-12, Rev. 6-19). Almighty God will arm these two patriarchs to the teeth for their GREATEST calling and Divine ministry in a day where global technology, lawlessness, godlessness, violence, licentiousness and weaponry has reached its EXPONENTIAL zenith! To survive the wrath of a godless global satanic movement armed with super advanced, technological weaponry, these Two will be absolutely invincible and the greatest nations of today's world with all their technological advancements in weaponry will be as a primitive tribal army in light of the BEYOND STUPENDOUS POWER and AUTHORITY of the Two Witnesses (Rev. 11:3-7)! No wonder at the end of their ministry when the beast from the abyss slays them (Rev. 11:7-12) that the world will all wonder at him and make this statement, Who is able to make war with the beast?! - Rev. 13:1-4. However, 3 1/2 days after Almighty God's Lamp Stands are slain by the beast these Two Lamp Stands will BURN EVER BRIGHTER as they arise and ascend in a cloud in the presence of Lucifer and his demons, the beast and a godless, satanic induced lawless world only confirming ALL that they have witnessed to and stated. This ascension will only ingrain in the mind of their enemies that in the end Almighty God is truly the ETERNAL SOVEREIGN and His Messiah and the Lamb is indeed the true KING of the world!

However, 3 1/2 days after Almighty God's Lamp Stands are slain by the beast these Two Lamp Stands will BURN EVER BRIGHTER as they arise and ascend in a cloud in the presence of Lucifer and his demons, the beast and a godless, satanic induced lawless world only confirming ALL that they have witnesses to and stated.

My friends just ahead our world will be entering into a time of WONDERMENT and SUPER NATURAL power which will make the natural of today seem obscure and the SUPER NATURAL the norm. This sounds like some fairy tale but it is not my dear friends. These things WILL BE and in our day all things show that it is not to far in our future.

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!



The Absence of the American Godly Father and the Coming Day of the Lord

The family unit (i.e., Father and Mother) is Almighty God’s design to protect and insulate mankind from the immoral ravishings, which manifest themselves by the violations of the moral absolutes instilled at the beginning of the creation (Gen. 1:1-31, Ex 20:1-17, Mark 10:19, Rom. 13:9, Heb. 13:4). It is a strong family unit that rests and abides on the moral absolutes of time that will keep and preserve a society from decadence violence and social break down. When these moral absolutes are rejected, the horrific consequences that follow are devastating to the children and nation. Godly fathers are greatly needed today but there are very few of them to be found today and the result of their absence is seen throughout America's society and culture.
The family unit (i.e., Father and Mother) is Almighty God’s design to protect and insulate mankind from the immoral ravishings, which manifest themselves by the violations of the moral absolutes instilled at the beginning of the creation.
It was man’s rejection of Almighty God’s moral absolutes and Divine mandates for the family which led to the Genesis flood(Gen. 6) and it will be the global rejection of Almighty God’s moral absolutes for the family unit which will lead to the Day of the Lord(Rev. 6-19).

My dear friend, it is an ETERNALLY, HORRIFIC and a SOBERING thing to fall into the hands of the RIGHTEOUS judge and ETERNAL God of Heaven and earth (Heb. 13:4). When a man rejects and refuses Almighty God’s design for society and the family he will be held FULLY accountable in that Day of Judgment (Matt. 12:36-37, Rev. 20: 11-15). What one does not recognize is that the deeds of a man's life here in time have huge consequences on his family (pro or con) and on society in general and will follow him all the way into that Day to be manifested and to be judged accordingly (Matt. 12:36-37, Rev. 20:11-15).
It was man’s rejection of Almighty God’s moral absolutes and Divine mandates for the family, which led to the Genesis flood.

The American male today is a wild man and there is no taming him. He is lawless, a sexual deviant, a hunter of erotic pleasure and self gratification, irresponsible, godless and a destroyer of the youth of America. Today how many fathers truly seek Almighty God plan for their life and will for their family with all their heart, soul and mind? The God fearing father is near extinction today and is the butt of every joke from the lawless reprobate American culture. The fall out from his absence today in America has left a horrific social devastation everywhere throughout our land.
My dear friend, may it be our sincere desire to be ALL that Almighty God would have us to be to our wives and our children (Rom. 8:29). As the Day of the Lord is at hand, we as fathers have much to offer our children and loved ones. We have much to tell them of Almighty God’s WONDROUS LOVE and ETERNAL HOPE (John 3:16-17, Rom. 8:28-39, 2 Cor. 1:9, 20, 1 John 3:1-3, Rev. 21-22:1-5). For us who know the Lord, this world is not our home and Almighty God has rescued us from the destructive consequences that will FOREVER follow those who rebel against the Creator of Heaven and earth(John 14:1-3, 1 Cor. 9-11, Gal. 1:4, Rev. 20:11-15). We have a Heavenly Father who ETERNALLY loves us! What could ever be greater than that!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Obama’s Delusion in Leaving Out Almighty God the Creator

It has become common place for President Obama – in many of his speeches including now the Gettysburg Address - to leave out the very One that our Founding Fathers knew to be the Foundation and Bedrock of this once great nation. It is from this One alone that “all men are endowed with certain unalienable rights”. It is from this One alone that men have any freedoms or human rights. It is from this One alone that men have their breath and being. It is from this One alone that men have any hope, deliverance and future in tomorrow’s eternity (Gal 1:4). When one publicly rejects the One in which all things exist and have their being, woe unto him! (Psalm 14:1-3, Rom 1:18-32, Col. 1:14-17).
When one publicly rejects the One in which all things exist and have their being, woe unto him!

For our President to leave out the Almighty God the CREATOR of these key and crucial foundational absolutes - which can NEVER be changed by man’s delusional godless philosophies and subject to their unbridled passions and desires of this fallen world - is quite telling and alarming. 

Today, there are many different positions of how our nation was founded. There are many of these philosophies and ideologies that apostate Americans adhere to as they reject the overwhelming evidence of our history’s record. Our Founding Father’s quotes and adherence to moral absolutes are inscribed on our old buildings, written in our founding state and federal constitutions and documents. They are written in our songs and anthems. Even our godless Ivy League colleges of today have in their founding documents and engraved on their buildings quotes from the Holy Scripture and references to Almighty God! The perception and wisdom that our founders possessed was immense. They fully comprehended the magnitude and realities of the day and hour that they lived in. They possessed the insight and perception from history’s past to know what to do and what not to do. Our Founders fully understood that the exclusion of Almighty God - the Creator of all - and His natural and moral absolutes would doom their endeavor from the start and would destine them to repeat the human failures of history’s witness. 
There are many of these philosophies and ideologies that apostate Americans adhere to as they reject the overwhelming evidence of our history’s record.

It is by the adherence to the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s Godthat we have become the most prosperous and liberating nation in the world’s history. It is by the adherence to Almighty God’s natural laws and moral absolutes that we can establish and enjoy some measure of human freedom and prosper to obtain a manner of human enjoyment and tranquility in this fallen sin (the violation of Almighty God’s Divine absolutes) ravished world (Romans 3:23).

The progressive Left of today has more power than at any time in our nation’s brief 235 year history. It is with this power that comes forth the ravishing consequences that have plagued our American culture these last 60 years. All that our Founding Fathers warned us about is embodied in their godless ideology and relative perception of moral absolutes. The poisonous fruit of their doings abounds in all facets of our society and culture today. To willingly reject and alienate the Creator of Heaven and the earth as President Obama and the Leftist Democratic leadership in Washington has is the height insanity and the manifestation of their hearts. The Lord Jesus stated that, “you will know men by their fruits (Matt 7:15-20)”. It is by these individual’s lawless actions and godless ambitions that we see what manner of men and women they are. In their outward rejection of Almighty God which shows their thoughts they - by their secular godless intentions - doom Americans to a life of oppression, tyranny and lawlessness. The grand conclusion of these being violence and anarchy. 
To willing reject and alienate the Creator of Heaven and the earth as President Obama and the Leftist Democratic leadership in Washington has is the height insanity and the manifestation of their hearts.

Our Founding Fathers fully comprehended that they lived in a fallen world in which godless men who rejected the moral and natural absolutes of Almighty God left a destructive path and wake of tyranny and oppression where ever they went. They knew the limitations of man. They knew the need for morality and personal responsibility among it inhabitants and countrymen. Most importantly, our Founders fully comprehended that Almighty God – the Creator and Intelligence behind the design and healthy function of the Heavens and earth had to be prevalent or this endeavor would be futile. 

A Blind Eye to History

238 years later it would seem that the majority of Americans have not paid attention to history’s witness and have rejected all of its warnings. Those who sound forth the warning cry today are scoffed, mocked and continually demonized by these haters of liberty and freedom. These rejecting masses of American apostates have fully rejected Almighty God’s moral and natural laws. These live in a relative subjective world of fantasy where their good intentions and well wishes - which are driven by their lusts and sensual desires – are driving them to the day of slaughter (Romans 1:18-32, Rev. 20:11-15).

It is our sincere desire and continual prayer that President Obama and all of Adam’s fallen race(Rom. 5:12-19) would abandon their delusional world perception and come to the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ as the Holy Scriptures testify in Spirit and Truth (John 4:24). The very sobering reality is that very few will do so (Matt 7:13-14).

It is our sincere desire and continual prayer that President Obama would come to the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ as the Holy Scriptures testify in Spirit and Truth.

As we live in these days of the global abandonment of our world’s Creator we see the exponential acceleration of lawlessness abounding every where. Mankind is bringing upon them the fruit of their godless doings (Gal. 6:7). All these events are heading to the great climatic battle of the end of the age as Almighty God stated that it would! That climatic confrontation is the global battle of Armageddon (Psalm 110, Rev 16:13-16). Almighty God the Holy Spirit cries out to this lost world of men to repent and to be saved(John 16:8-11)! His eternal desire is that all men would turn from their godless ways and honor the Creator in spirit and truth (John 3:16-17, 4:24, 1 Tim. 2:4).

Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? Oh that you would trust Him today! All of your eternal well being depends on what you will do with God’s Son. 

May you truly know the Creator of all as your Savior as these days come to an end!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Islamic Operative in White House Scores Another Victory for Muslim Brotherhood. | Christian Coalition of America

Islamic Operative in White House Scores Another Victory for Muslim Brotherhood. | Christian Coalition of America

Islamic Operative in White House Scores Another Victory for Muslim Brotherhood.

They did it again. While we watched President Obama dodge the Syrian red line with Putin taking the lead, while we held our collective breaths as Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu and France’s President Hollande stalled negotiations over the Iran’s nuclear ambitions, the Islamists were at it again. This time they cunningly swooped in and placed their wildest dreams into the massive immigration reform bill recently passed by the United States Senate.
Most Americans believe the bill is about amnesty, or a way to grant general pardon for political offenses such as disobedience to immigration laws. For example, most think it will give millions of Hispanic illegal aliens living in the U.S. amnesty. The bill goes far beyond obedience to law. Even pro-immigration Christian evangelicals say the bill is not amnesty. Then what is it?
The sweeping immigration reform bill, called the “Amnesty Bill” has Islamic inferences buried deep inside that should give Americans the shudders, and indeed, the entire world, especially United States allies. The bill reportedly includes a fast track to citizenship for immigrants from Muslim countries. U.S. President Obama hailed the passage of the bill as a critical step towards fixing America’s broken immigration system. While the “Gang of Eight” senators crafted the bill, an outsider, who just happens to be a Muslim Brotherhood associate, provided “treasured input,” according to a close associate of the Obama administration.
Fast tracking Muslims is not new to President Obama. Going back to 2010, Obama issued an executive order to fast-track immigrants from Islamic countries. In short, a person from a Muslim country could become a U.S. citizen in as little as ten weeks, with no I.D. and no declaration of fealty to the U.S. Constitution. The recent Senate immigration reform bill further expands the previously strict qualifications for immigration from Afghanistan and allows more family members to join admitted asylum seekers. In addition, the numbers allowed to arrive from Saudi Arabia is many times that of Afghanistan. If amendments were to be added to the immigration reform bill, more Muslim countries, such as Chechnya, could be added. Refugees from the Middle East could raise Muslim immigration numbers even higher. Could Muslims over take Hispanics? 
Speaking of refugees, according to Amnesty International, Jordan is forcibly returning thousands of refugees back to Syria. Why?  Because Jordan is experiencing economic and other pressures as a result of accepting so many refugees.  Amnesty argues that Jordan’s pressures do not justify such violations of international law. Enter the United States as rescuer. Word is out that Obama intends to grant political asylum to large numbers of Syrian refugees (mostly Muslim). This global picture from Syria, to Russia, to Iran, to Israel to the United States is akin to a chess match, but with far-reaching implications and ramifications.
Who inside the Obama Administration helped to craft the shocking increases in Muslim immigration that is buried deep inside the text of the Senate bill? The input came from Mohammed Magdi, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). Magdi is one of six Muslim policy advisors of the Obama administration with direct ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
We used to believe that 2 + 2 = 4. In other words, we appealed to common sense. Does it make sense for the U.S. to admit large numbers of refugees and immigrants from Muslim countries, most of which would be practicing Sharia Law? It appears they could become U.S. citizens almost overnight. What a “checkmate” that would be for Islamists!
While the Middle East chess game continues and boils over with political intrigue and potential dangers to otherwise stable governments, the Muslim Brotherhood appears to be on the march with tentacles of influence reaching far beyond the Middle East. Taking countries from the inside out is their distinct goal. Egypt seems to have seen the light. What will it take to nudge the rest of the world into the dawn of truth, particularly United States citizens?
When immigration reform isn’t about reform; when amnesty isn’t about amnesty; when the rule of law is not the rule of law, it must be about something else. Could it be that the Muslim Brotherhood brothers already embedded inside the U.S. government are envisioning and planning their worldwide caliphate ruled by Sharia Law to be centered inside the United States of America? Amnesty, America and the Brotherhood. What would (will) America and the world look like with the Islamic flag flying over the White House?

What is the truth about Israel?

What is the truth about Israel? 
by Susan Michael 
Support for Israel runs deep in the United States for a number of reasons. According to recent polls as many as 80 percent of American Christians feel a moral obligation to support Israel.  A large part of this is due to the influence of the Bible but there is also an appreciation for Israel’s democratic values as well as empathy with Israel since the same terrorist organizations that want to destroy the Jewish state have also attacked America. 
Another value that runs deep in American society is truthfulness, therefore dishonesty is frowned upon.  For this reason many Americans are quite gullible and simply believe what they are told because of the assumption that they are being told the truth.
This may have been the case in years gone by but today the world is quickly changing. While America has been known for Christian values such as honesty and morality these qualities are coming under attack.  The change is happening so rapidly that it has caught many off guard. 
Anti-Semitic Propaganda
This can be seen especially in regards to the Israel issue. The global propaganda campaign to delegitimize and demonize Israel that is prevalent in the Muslim world and in post-Christian Europe is now finding its way here and can be found on American college campuses, in social media and in liberal institutions.
A young Israeli man, Hen Mazzig, came to the Pacific Northwest for four months this year to speak on college campuses, high schools and churches.  He spoke about the history of modern Israel, his experience growing up there and his service as an officer in the IDF COGAT unit that assists and promotes Palestinian civil society. 
After speaking to over 16,000 people at many institutions he wrote an article describing his complete shock at the “gut-wrenching, anti-Israel, anti-Semitic hostility expressed by many students, professors, church members and even high school students.”  He concluded “I never expected to encounter such hatred and lies.  I never believed that such anti-Semitism still existed, especially in the U.S.”
The danger is not just that America’s support for Israel will be eroded due to this campaign but that our belief in the Bible – the foundation of Israel’s significance and America’s greatness – will also be diminished.  For this reason it is very important that young people know where to find the facts and information necessary to arrive at the truth and to give an answer in defense of the truth.
Is Israel An Apartheid State?
Take for example the accusation that Israel is an apartheid state.  There is actually no truth to this accusation but it is a brilliant use of an emotive concept that carries with it a call to action.  This is because the only other time in history the term was employed was in regards to the South African apartheid regime that was a racist government brought down in 1996 through international protests and sanctions.
Israel’s enemies have concluded that if Israel can be branded an apartheid state then she too could be brought down through international protests and a campaign of boycotts, divestment and sanctions.  For this reason there is a growing annual protest called Israeli Apartheid Week on college campuses around the world.
A few facts that will help combat this lie are as follows.  Today there are 1.4 million Arab-Israelis who make up approximately 20 percent of Israel’s population. Arabs occupy senior positions in all sectors of Israeli society — from the Supreme Court and parliament to the arts and business. Salim Jubran, Supreme Court Justice; Nawaf Massalha, former Deputy Foreign Minister; Mira Awwad, popular singer who represented Israel in the Eurovision song contest; and Angelina Fares, the former Ms. Israel are all Israeli Arabs.
They enjoy full equal civil rights.  In fact, the freest Arab population in the Middle East lives in Israel. It is also the only country in the region where the Christian population is growing. Many Muslims – inside and outside of Israel – have made clear that Israel is not an apartheid state, but rather a model for toleration in a region filled with sectarian violence. Kenneth Meshoe, South African Member of Parliament, is very outspoken that Israel is not an apartheid state and to accuse her of being so insults the millions of Black South Africans who suffered under true apartheid.
Finding Answers
Where can the American Christian community find these types of facts and information needed to defend Israel and to defend their own support of Israel?  The website is an easy-to-use site in a question and answer format with straight forward answers as well as links to supporting documentation and other resources. 
This is the information age and as a result this generation is being bombarded with so much information that it has to dig through mountains of data in order to arrive at the truth.  This is an overwhelming task on complex issues.  Knowing where to go for balanced analysis, supporting documentation and abundant resources is crucial.  When you find a truthful source spread the truth around! is one.

Almost every day we read in the newspapers that yet another deadly event has occurred between Hamas and Fatah in the Palestinian territories.  In order for peace to prevail, it is obvious that these two opposing groups of people must put their differences aside and somehow form a unified government.
It would seem logical that Israel’s Arab neighbors would rise to the occasion and put real pressure on Hamas and Fatah to put aside their differences and make peace.  But they do not.  The question is, “Why?”
What’s in it for them?  There must be a payoff in keeping Palestinians stirred up and hostile.  If world attention is directed towards fighting between Hamas and Fatah, then the world won’t notice what is actually happening in other Arab countries.
Take Iran and Syria for example.  Syria has offered a pathway for terrorists to smuggle weapons into the Palestinian territories, while Iran has a questionable and potentially dangerous nuclear development program underway.  These rogue countries have needed world attention to be focused in other directions.  With Syria making headline news right now, the world is even more distracted from watching Iran.
Fanning the flames of discontent and violence between Hamas and Fatah and blaming Israel keeps eyes off the real culprit, Iran.  Israel becomes the scapegoat and is blamed for everything bad that happens inside the Palestinian territories and is called upon to take corrective actions.  Peace is only achievable when there is a sincere desire by all parties involved. 
Because Israel is projected to be the guilty party, she is constantly being forced to defend herself one way or another.   Take public opinion, for example.  When Israel bows to public pressure, she loses much more than she gains.  Another is the Palestinian assertion that it is their right to demand the right of return for refugees as part of the peace process.  They claim it is non-negotiable.  Israel would be devastated as a nation should that be agreed upon.
I hope and pray that Israel continues to stand firm.  If a person does not understand the very serious scenarios that could develop if Palestinian refugees were to return to the West Bank and Gaza, refusal may sound unreasonable and harsh.  It is not so; it is a matter of self-preservation.

Why another Palestinian State?

When will the US realize that it is fruitless to keep bringing the Palestinians to a peace table? Over and over we watch the US drag Israel into peace talks.   Five times the Palestinians have agreed to terms and five times they have broken their word.  Now that Secretary Kerry has brought the Palestinians to the peace table once again history will prove no matter what Israel gives the Palestinians it will not be enough until they take all of Israel and wipe the Jewish people off the map.
The parties always overlook one thing: there already exists two Palestinian states:  the Gaza Strip Palestinian State and the country of Jordan which borders Israel to the east.  Is their real intent to form a three-state-solution?
Most people are unaware that the landmass containing today’s Israel and Jordan once existed as one unit.  It was called a “British Mandate” and was controlled by England.  After WWI, England was supposed to give all this land to the Jewish people so that they could have a Jewish state, a restored homeland for the Jews.  But, England changed her plans and awarded Arabs ¾ of the land and Jews ¼ thereof.  Arabs received land east of the Jordan River; Jews received land west of the Jordan River.
Then entered Saudi Arabia.  They convinced England to give Saudi Hashemite Arabs control of the Arab area and a Hashemite king was installed. The Hashemites and their king are in control of Jordan today. The problem is that Jordan’s largest ethnic group is the so-called Palestinian Arabs, the original occupiers of the land.  Even though a United Nation’s report declares that at least 2/3 of Jordan’s people are of Palestinian origin and are a majority, Hashemite King Abdullah claims the Palestinians make up only 43%, a minority.
The Middle East is in chaos; some call it a storm and others say it is on fire.  The Hashemite kingdom has avoided a crisis so far, but the relative calm is superficial.  Under the surface, small-scale anti-government uprisings have been suppressed.  But the Palestinian Jordanians feel profound hatred for the Hashemites and think of them as intruders, not as legitimate rulers.  That makes a quest for regime change likely, probably sooner rather than later, especially when considering the overall Middle East turmoil.
What would a regime change in Jordon create?  Another Muslim autocrat could be toppled.  If so, it would automatically provide a two-state-solution for Palestinian Arabs.  The present Hashemite state would be transformed into the Palestinian State of Jordan.
What might ignite the fire of rebellion in Jordan?  In countries fraught with human rights violations, the minorities are victims, not the majority.  In Jordan the minority Hashemite dynasty discriminates against the Jordanian Palestinians who are the majority.  For example, the Palestinians face higher taxes; they are rejected for the better government jobs; they are passed over for military and police service positions.
To make matters worse, the West has ignored Hashemite discriminatory practices against Palestinians.
Perhaps the West fears that radical jihadist Muslims could topple Hashemite rule, turning Jordan into a springboard for terrorist attacks against Israel.  Or, the oppressive and dangerous Muslim Brotherhood could become rulers.
With Palestinian Arabs watching their Arab brothers rebelling against autocratic leaders all over the Middle East, it is possible Palestinian Jordan is a sitting on bomb ready to explode.  If the Palestinians were to emerge successful against the Hashemite Jordanian government, Jordan would be transformed into a second Palestinian state.  If a two-state-solution is the goal, wouldn’t this be a more logical location than drawing a zigzag boundary line through the state of Israel?

Distractions Take Pressure off Iran

Israel appears to be between the proverbial rock and hard place. Unfortunately, Israel does not live in a friendly neighborhood.  A half million hostile Arab neighbors surround Israel.  Syria poses a dire threat.  More importantly, recent frightening images from Syria have shown men, women and children writhing with seizures and pain caused by Assad attacking his own with chemical weapons.   If Assad would kill his own people, what’s to keep him from attacking Israel to obtain the Golan Heights as a key strategic position?
Assad knows how important the Golan is to Israel.  Extending between the borders of Syria, Lebanon and Jordan, the Golan Heights acts as a buffer to help secure Israel’s border to prevent Arab armies from rushing Israel from the north.  If hostile neighbors were to seize the Golan, all of northern Israel would be in direct range of artillery fire.   In addition, the main water sources for the State of Israel are controlled from the Golan Heights.
Hezbollah, Iran’s proxy, has a main base of operation in Lebanon.  Iran obtains much military hardware from Russia and passes it along to Hezbollah through Damascus, with Assad’s nod of approval.  As a result, Hezbollah has an arsenal of approximately 60,000 rockets, many of which are aimed directly at Israel.
Take note of this AP article dated May 10, 2013: “Russia defended its sales of anti-aircraft systems to the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, just days after joining forces with the U.S. for a new push to end Syria's civil war through negotiations. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov avoided saying whether those sales included advanced S-300 batteries. Israel has asked Russia to cancel what it said was the imminent sale of the S-300 missiles, portrayed by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry as destabilizing to Israel's security. The S-300s would make it harder for the U.S. and other countries to even consider intervening militarily or enforcing a no-fly zone in Syria. The U.S. has urged Russia — an Assad ally along with China, Iran and the Lebanese Hezbollah militia — to cut off weapons supplies to Syria.”
With a rising arsenal of weapons in Syria, why wouldn’t we believe they might use these as an advantage to attack Israel?
Attention has shifted away from Iran towards Egypt and Syria.  Have these distractions caused us to forget what Iran is doing?   Iran is certainly proceeding to enrich Uranium with the express intent to use a guidance system to deliver a nuclear knockout on Israeli soil.  Sanctions and talks have not curbed Iran’s nuclear ambitions or hindered their progress. A nuclear-armed Iran is a threat to every corner of the globe.   Israel and the world should be on notice.  There are no sanctions strong enough to stop a regime led by the likes of Ali Ayatollah Khomeini, nor to stop the madness of extreme Islamic ideology.  Talking is useless.
Mark Regev, Spokesman for Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu, painted a clear picture when he said this, “…talking is like riding a bicycle while enriching uranium is like driving a race car.  Iran and the Khomeini regime are perfectly content for the United States to talk.  It allows Iran to continue to drive its race car towards uranium enrichment.” 
Israel drew a red line in the sand for a very clear reason.  Israel cannot allow Iran and other rogue Arab nations to continue to promote Israel’s destruction.  Israel cannot allow Iran to reach the “Immune Zone” of possessing nuclear capabilities.  Self-preservation is a basic human instinct.
During his U.N. speech earlier this year, Prime Minister Netanyahu summed the situation up this way, “Three thousand years ago King David reigned over the Jewish state in our eternal capital, Jerusalem.  I say that to all those who proclaim that the Jewish state has no roots in our region and that it will soon disappear.  Throughout our history, the Jewish people have overcome all the tyrants who have sought our destruction.  It’s their ideologies that have been discarded by history.  The people of Israel live on.  We say in Hebrew Am Yisrael Chai, and the Jewish state will live forever.”
God’s Red Line was the Red Sea.  The Egyptians made a fatal mistake.  Will the Iranians repeat history, or will they choose to refrain from crossing Netanyahu’s Red Line?  If they cross, they will surely suffer the same crushing fate.

Blessed Be the Ties that Bind

A study of true American history will enlightened the reader to a direct correlation to Israel based onwhat America’s Founding Fathers faced when fleeing the tyranny of King George III as they sought a new life in what would become these “United States of America.”
Just as Moses stood against great odds to lead his fellow Hebrew slaves held in captivity in to a land that would yield them freedom from some 400 years of slave labor so, too, did George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and others flee under the guidance of God to a land that they would soon find out was also filled with milk and honey; a land that, through the toils of a relentless revolution, would build a strong union for all mankind to have the choice of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  It would also begin an allied relationship rooted in the shared values of two nations.  America’s early colonists equated their flight from religious tyranny to that of the Hebrews fleeing persecution in Egypt.  Much of the internal governance of the colonies was based largely on Mosaic Law.
What role did Israel play in the visions of our Founding Fathers? After all, Israel was not a nation during the early colonists fight for independence. The Jews had been dispersed throughout the world seeking someday to return to the land God had promised to Abraham thousands of years ago.
Israel’s role, succinctly stated in an article from the Jewish Virtual Library, describes it this way. “The profound influence of Jewish tradition on America’s Founding Fathers can be seen in the Constitution of the United States. Such influence should come as no surprise given John Adams’ view expressed in a letter to Thomas Jefferson, ‘”I will insist that the Hebrews have done more to civilize man than any nation.”’
The Jews also had a profound influence relating directly to the American Revolution. President Calvin Coolidge paid homage to their role in the War of Independence: “The Jews themselves, of whom a considerable number were already scattered throughout the colonies, were true to the teachings of their prophets. The Jewish faith is predominantly the faith of liberty.”
The United States has remained a superpower since “the shot that could be heard from around the world” was fired. Had our Founding Fathers not had the chance to draw upon the spiritual insights of the Bible and the influences of the Jewish people, the inscription “And Proclaim Freedom throughout the Land unto All the inhabitants thereof” (Leviticus 25:10) would have never been inscribed on the Liberty Bell.
Freedom and democracy are concepts drawn directly from the Hebrew Scriptures.  Without the Word of God faithfully recorded and preserved by the Jews and shared with the world, America’s Founding Fathers would not have had the clarity of thought and vision or the fortitude to stand by their convictions as they labored to lay the groundwork and prepare the documents that would shape the United States of America according to the plan and that being to form ‘One Nation Under God.’ 
We, as Americans, owe a huge debt of gratitude to the Jewish people for their part in helping shape and give birth to the “land of the free and the home of the brave.”  From the beginning, America has had strong ties to the Jewish people which, as history marched forward, progressed to form strong ties to the State of Israel.  It is in the best interest of America to never forget these ties that bind.  Except for Israel, all of the Middle East in a state of traumatic turmoil and somehow the world wants to place the blame on Israel.  It is not only a matter of moral obligation that we stand united with God’s chosen but it is also a matter of self preservation.  God says He will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel.  Any people or nation that puts pressure on Israel to act contrary to God’s Word by giving up land is, in essence, cursing Israel.  America’s founding fathers knew the Bible and embraced this truth and thus America grew into a great and mighty nation.  If only our present day leadership knew and wholly embraced the Word of God, our present circumstances, internally and internationally, would likely be very different.  God save America.

Spring Comes Before Fall – The Arab Spring, Now The Arab Fall.

Thanks, in part, to the Arab Spring, Israelis take very seriously the need to live in a constant state of preparedness.  What if you had a special place, a convenient and secure place set aside in your home?  What if in this secure place you had rows of gas masks – some small enough to fit every one of your children? What if you had to carry these with you at all times because your neighbors did not believe that you had the right to even exist?
Welcome to Israel. Since the 1990s, when Iraq threatened Israel with chemical weapons, Israel has undertaken, at no small expense, to distribute gas masks to all of its citizens.  Over the years, old gas masks have been replaced by new ones.  Periodically there are also national blood drives to make certain there is enough blood of every type on hand in the event of an incident. 
The latest threat involves Syria.  Syria is currently in a very bloody war.  It is a well known fact that Syria possesses numerous long range rockets that can strike most parts of Israel.  It is also known that Syria possesses chemical and/or biological weapons that can be loaded onto these rockets.  This could inflict death on many and cause mass casualties far and wide in this tiny country. The war that Syria is now in risks these weapons getting into the hands of some who would not hesitate to use them on the land of Israel.
It is a well known fact that Israel does not have peaceful borders.  It would take very little to trigger an incident.  There is the daily threat of someone unleashing a rocket, suicide bombers, border infiltration or numerous other ways to kill and maim as many Israelis as possible. It is the desire of their neighbors to annihilate all Israelis and their efforts to this end could happen at any time.  How do Israelis manage to live under such stress day in and day out and still manage to live life to the fullest by celebrating weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, birthdays, holidays, graduations, family vacations and so on?  Israelis manage to cope in their pressure cooker environment because they are fiercely proud of their heritage, their land and, most importantly, their faith in the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
In the United States and in most countries around the world, we cannot fanthom what it is like to live in a state of hyper-vigilance yet Israelis not only live this way, they actually thrive.  Think for a moment. Do you pay particular attention if someone’s grocery sack or backpack is left unattended?  Maybe, but not for the same reason as an Israeli would.  You would probably wonder what item of value was left behind and perhaps even be concerned about helping to find the owner.  In Israel, any object left unattended in a public place could reasonably be expected to explode spewing shrapnel in all directions and casting a deadly net of death and destruction.  Even so, somehow they cope and press on.  When an Israeli wants to get in their car and take a drive, very careful attention must be paid to the exact route so as not to make a wrong turn.  One wrong turn could spell disaster or even death.  There are signs along certain highways and roads in Israel warning Israelis that a Palestinian village is located just ahead and that entrance is forbidden to Jews.  Imagine that!  Because of this, if Israelis want to leave Israel on vacation, their only option is to fly.  Unlike in Europe or America, driving is out of the question.  Even if they could cross the border in to a neighboring country, death would surely await them.  What about those outdoor enthusiasts who want to take a hike in the Judean Hills?  This, too, must be carefully mapped out as borders are not clearly marked and one small misstep could spell disaster. 
Israelis are the world’s experts in safety and security.  They know the art of protection in theory as well as in practice.  Right now regular preparedness drills are taking place all over Israel.  Warning sirens are activated and people know to get to their safe place.  These drills are practiced at different times of the day and even at night.  Practice eliminates chaos and confusion.          
There are scriptures verses from the Psalms and Proverbs that the Jewish people recite daily – “God has nullified the conspiracy of the nations.  He has thwarted the plans of various peoples.  Many are the thoughts in the heart of man, but it is the plan of God that endures.”  This gives them the strength and courage to face external threats, no matter how dire or how overwhelming the odds.  A prayer of my own for Israel is straight from G-d’s Word and it comes from a promise; “L-rd, let no weapon formed against them prosper but, like Haman, may the weapon formed be turned and used to destroy its maker.” G-D BLESS THE LAND OF  ISRAEL AND ALL OF ITS PEOPLE.

If the Bible is Correct, They Will Turn Their Swords Against Each Other

Many stories of justice and of God overcoming evil fill the Bible, God’s Holy Word.  One of the most dramatic and best known is the amazing defeat of the giant Goliath by David in I  Samuel 17.  David was a shepherd boy who miraculously vanquished the mocking giant Goliath on a battlefield in Israel.  “The battle is the Lord’s,” shouted David as he hurled the fatal stone from his simple slingshot into Goliath’s forehead.  The giant crumpled dead onto the battlefield floor.  With this heroic feat and his simple trust in the Lord, David saved the Army and the nation of Israel from destruction.
David and Goliath, the giant and the shepherd boy, is a reminder that Israel can have the same confidence in the same God in today’s conflict with the Islamic nations of the Middle East.  Israel is the David, the lone tiny Jewish nation in conflict with Goliath, the expansive 26-nation Islamic empire of the Middle East.  God’s Word is as true today as it was in the ancient days of the battle of the Philistines and Israel when little David cried out “The battle is the Lord’s.”
Interestingly, the conflict does not seem to be a religious battle on both sides.  Yes, the Islamic religion motivates all of the Arab nations to hate the Jewish people of Israel.  Israel’s Judaism is not a force of hatred against the Muslims.  Actually, more than half of the Israeli citizens are secular Jews who do not embrace or practice Judaism.  We might add that the Islam of the Middle East also hates all Christians, especially those in the United States of America, even though more than half of America’s citizens are not true Christians either.  So while it seems to be a religious conflict, it is really a national conflict, the Arab nations in conflict with Israel and America.  In Israel’s case, it is certainly a repeat of David vs. Goliath.
Our minds can go back to the middle of the last century when Jewish forces faced the giant of pagan fascism.  Fascism actually had Muslim supporters including the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem.  The Mufti is forever sealed into the fascist conspiracy through the photos of him smiling beside an equally evil and jolly Adolph Hitler.  In Berlin they agreed that any of the European Jews who might escape to the area, then known as Palestine, would be slaughtered by Muslim troops in the Middle East.
These two were over confidant that victory was theirs and that the final solution for the annihilation of the Jews was near.  But there again, “The battle was the Lord’s.”  Hitler and fascism died in ignominy and the Jewish nation of Israel is alive, well, and thriving in its ancient homeland.  How did the Jewish David become the victor over the giant Goliath of fascism?  The God of Israel is the one true and only answer.
Today the enemies of Israel need to be reminded that God has re-gathered the Jewish people into their own land, “…never to be uprooted again,” according to the prophet Amos.   We do not know exactly when the Islamic empire is going to try to attack Israel, but it seems that we can expect it soon.  Muslim leaders continually tell the world that they plan “to wipe Israel off the face of the map.”  They would have us to believe that this is in the very near future.
The Bible tells us that a coalition of Arab nations, led by the Biblical Persia, the present day Iran, and assisted by Russia, will organize to come against Israel in the latter days.  This Goliath coalition is already coalescing.  Russia has been working for years with all of the Arab nations mentioned in this prophecy, arming them with modern weapons and training their military forces.  And for what?  There is no other answer except to attack and annihilate David, the tiny Jewish nation of Israel.
Here again, “the battle will be the Lord’s.”  The Bible foretells that when this coalition assembles on the plains of Megiddo in Israel to prepare to attack Jerusalem, God will cause these Arab-Islamic military forces to “turn their swords on one another” and this seems to be happening even now.  They will be defeated and annihilated by David’s God before they even get a shot at Jerusalem.
Remember the cry of David.  “The Battle is the Lord’s”.

How can Abbas, a so-called Peace Negotiator, be so Ignorant and One Sided?

With all the attention supposedly now focused on negotiations and “peace talks” between the Israelis and the Palestinians, why is most of the attention going to the ending of the building of new residences on land in towns and villages rightfully belonging to Israel?
Why are there no efforts or developments addressing this most important issue that Israel has every right to build on land which she rightfully owns? Everyone in the world should know and understand the obvious reason. The sad truth is that most of the world does not want to allow the Jewish people to maintain possession and control of their own land — land that was promised to the Jewish people by the biblical prophets from Abraham to Zechariah as “an everlasting possession.”
This land was prescribed as “a homeland for the Jews” by the League of Nations and by the British Mandate of the 1920s. This land was legitimately possessed by the Jewish people with miraculous victories in warfare in 1948 and 1967 against enemy armies that sought to destroy and annihilate them. From every perspective — biblical, historical and military — the land of Israel from the Jordan to the Mediterranean is Jewish land.
So, how can the leaders of the United States, the United Nations, the European Union and other obviously pro-Arab nations rationalize that half of that land belongs to the Arabs? How can they be so naïve (or deceived)? Or, using other words, how can they be so biased? How can they be so ignorant? However, the main focus now is not on the past, but on the present — on the resumed Israeli-Palestinian negotiations or so-called “peace talks.”
But we have to ask the same questions: How can anyone in the world believe that the Palestinians deserve to have their own separate state on Israelis land? And, furthermore, how can anyone believe that the Palestinians even want their own state on half of the present Israeli land given the fact that they have made such little progress in building their own economic base, establishing a functioning government, building and maintaining their own infrastructure, and establishing a functioning civil society?
To believe the Palestinians truly want their own state, living peacefully side by side with Israel, people would have to ignore everything that the Palestinians have done (or left undone) since they signed the Oslo Accords back in 1993. They agreed in writing to stop their terrorism, to disarm and dismantle their militant terrorist groups, and to work to build a viable economy and a functioning democratic government in the territory they are occupying.
Everyone has to know that they have made absolutely no effort even to begin to fulfill any of those promises. They proceeded to sign four subsequent peace agreements, only to continue to fail to fulfill any of the terms of their signed agreements. So who can trust someone who continually lies to you? Who can believe that the Palestinians will ever change their spots? Who can believe they will ever want a Palestinian state on half of Israel’s land, co-existing peacefully with the Jewish people?
In addition, how is it that all these world leaders not only ignore that the Palestinians have not done what they promised, but also ignore what the present Palestinian leadership is saying? Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas has stated over and over again that he will not recognize Israel as a Jewish state under any circumstances. He has said repeatedly that he will not be satisfied without being given East Jerusalem to become the capital of a Palestinian state. He has continually declared that he wants millions of so-called “Arab refugees” to return to live not only in the Palestinian state but in the Israeli state as well.
Furthermore, how can all these world leaders ignore the glaring truth that Abbas has chosen to reject all previous peace proposals put forth by Israeli governments, including the dramatic proposals from former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert that were more generous than current Prime Minister Netanyahu will ever offer.
Netanyahu has made it abundantly clear that he does not intend to relinquish East Jerusalem to have a divided city, nor will he ever relinquish the Temple Mount and the Western Wall. It’s so basic and elementary that it seems almost idiotic to have to spell it out on paper.  The world must demand that any peace agreement be fair and equitable all the way around.  Israel is willing to give and the Palestinians are willing to take.  So, what’s in it for Israel?
