About Me

My photo

God desires that ALL people would accept God's love and salvation through Jesus Christ. God has compelled me to share information with the world relating to the biblical seven year tribulation in order to share Truth in a deceived world.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. (John 1:1-5)

Jesus answered, "I AM the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)

Rosen said that, although religiously fueled clashes are erupting around the world, the increasing cultural diversity in many countries means there also are new opportunities for building cooperative relationships.

"And that already is happening in many places," Rosen said. "Almost every week, there's a major new interfaith conference somewhere in the world. This work really is turning into an exponentially growing industry.

"Now, here in Detroit," he added, "I don't think you can bring about peace in the Middle East, but what you can do is offer some new models for working together that can be a blessing to the rest of the world."

Microsoft offers personal digital ID cards

What will make InfoCard appeal to the IT community is that it actually delivers on a long awaited promise, federated security. It doesn't matter who issues the InfoCard or what operating system or software they use. The whole process is standards driven and vendor neutral. After years of false starts, this looks like it will deliver something that has eluded the IT industry so far.

So what is Microsoft adding to InfoCard under its CardSpace banner?

Whenever the user is working with an InfoCard they will find themselves put into a separate desktop and using a very restricted account. You will not be able to move between your normal desktop and the CardSpace environment. This will make it exceptionally hard for hackers to try and screen grab or harvest passwords using keystroke logging software.

This really does have the ability to improve security and Microsoft is already talking to a number of online retailers about adding InfoCard support to their web sites.

The Ark of the Covenant may be in the Judean Desert

. . . Vendyl Jones, he plans to uncover the lost Ark of the Covenant by Tisha b`Av. It was the resting place of the Ten Commandments, given to the Jews at Mt. Sinai and supposedly hidden just before the First Temple was destroyed. Although the Talmud says the Ark is hidden under the Temple Mount, Jones believes the tunnel continues 18 miles to the south and is now in the Judean Desert. Jones is not Jewish, although his daughter Sarah has converted and lives in Samaria (Shomron). However, he is learned in Torah and Talmud and has contact with a mysterious kabbalist who has now given him his blessing to reveal the Ark . . .

Copper Scroll and Vendyl Jones

. . . excavations at the caves of Qumran are still going, in the hope that still-hidden writings can be located. One of the most promising operations has been conducted by Professor Jones, of Arlington, Texas, who has converted to "Noahide Judaism," meaning that he has accepted the Seven Noahide Mitzvot. Two of his sons are full-fledged converts to Judaism -- one having become a chasid.

Professor Jones has excavated over 25 years in the Qumran area. His Efforts were rewarded when he made two sensational discoveries. He found a small jar, holding a rare oil identified as the "shemen afarshimon," (persimmon oil) made from now extinct plants, which was used for anointing kings and priests. It is said to be so sweet that it cannot be compared with any other sweet substance. In biblical and talmudic days the composition of this oil was kept secret. A chemical analysis conducted by Israeli scholars was made difficult because no kindred plants exist anymore in the Dead Sea area.

Jones’ second great find was a horde that constituted the "pittum haqetoret" ("preparation of the incense"). As we know from the Talmud, one family was in charge of preparing the incense in the Temple and they guarded the secrets of its ingredients so closely that they were criticized by the rabbis for making it impossible for others to produce the qetoret. An analysis by the Weizman Institute has yielded that the materials found in the Qumran Cave by Jones consisted of 15 species, all of which are listed in the Talmud.

Now Professor Jones is following the guidelines provided in the Copper Scroll to find further hidden caves. By using the most advanced laser serial technology, he has located a subterranean cave, which -- according to the Copper Scroll -- may very well be the hiding place of the Mishkan (Sanctuary) and some of the ashes of the Red Heifer. The excavation of this un-opened cave is to begin very soon this year.

"In God We Trust" must be less important, now

The American mint has removed the official "In God We Trust" motto from the face of its dollar coin and has relegated it to the gold-colored coin's thin edge. Mint officials said the reason for the change is to leave more room for portraits of former presidents and the State of Liberty.

The reference on the coin to the Almighty is the most common place for the motto, which was adopted by an act of Congress in 1956.

Outreach Judaism - responds directly to the issues raised by missionaries and cults. Responds to Jews For Jesus

Twenty-two years ago, twelve Messianic congregations existed in the United States. Today, more than 300 actively attract and recruit Jews who, because they lack a sound Jewish education and support system, are buying the manipulative rhetoric and persuasive techniques of the Hebrew-Christian missionary movement.

Additionally, there are over 600 Christian missions dedicated to converting the Jewish people. It is estimated that there are more than 200,000 Hebrew-Christians in North America and Israel. As an exit-counselor who works with families to reclaim their Jewish family members from these churches, I can testify that the cost in terms of Jewish souls is dear.

If the estimates are correct, more than 8,000 Jews will be crossing over to the Hebrew-Christian movement this coming year.

Potential Headline: Israel has launched air attacks on Iranian nuclear facilities

With assessments that the Iranian nuclear program could come to fruition as early as next March, the window of opportunity where diplomatic
pressure or sanctions can prevent its completion is rapidly shrinking.

Despite the assurances of US President George W. Bush that he will not allow Iran to acquire the bomb, it increasingly looks as if Israel will be left alone to face the threat themselves. In his weakened state following the midterm elections, it's unlikely that the US president will be able to garner the support for any kind of US military involvement to stop Iran.

What will the world reaction be if Israel launches a preemptive attack on Iranian nuclear facilities, - a scenario that is appearing more likely with each passing week? Will it be condemnation, like in 1981 when the Israeli air force took out the Iraqi Osirak nuclear facility near Baghdad? Will there be any appreciation amid the realization that Israel was preventing
a catastrophic situation from occuring - letting a leader with dangerous aspirations acquire a nuclear bomb?

Unless the UN and peace-loving nations spurred by the US are able to stop the Iranian program with diplomatic means, the world is going to wake up some day before the spring to the news that Israel has launched air attacks on Iranian nuclear facilities. Now is the time for the Israeli government - as well as supporters of Israel - to start planning their campaign to explain the whys and the hows. The day after will be too late.

Vatican: Israeli-Palestinian conflict center of Mideast instability, action needed now - Catholic Online

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is at the center of Middle East instability that the international community can no longer ignore, the Vatican told a United Nations emergency session.

An agreement ensuring peace between Palestinians and Israelis must be comprehensive, Archbishop Migliore said, involving “all major players in the Middle East,” be in accord with other bilateral and multilateral agreements and deal with “all questions of common concern.”

“This is a time of both urgency and of opportunity,” he said, “urgency because the situation is not static, rather it is deteriorating by the minute … opportunity, because … civilian populations everywhere have seen and suffered the devastations of the conflicts and are surely more willing than ever for an honorable peace.”

200 Mizo Jews migrate to Israel

200 Mizo Jews migrate to Israel

Text of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's speech at the 2006 UJC General Assembly

Ladies and gentlemen,

We have reached the pivotal moment of truth regarding Iran.

It would be an unbearable sin to future generations to allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons. What would we tell our children? How can we justify not preventing this catastrophic event? If Iran achieves the ability to produce nuclear weapons, as we know it is seeking to do, we will enter a new era of instability unlike any the world has ever seen.

We cannot afford to wait.

We must all speak with one voice.

No longer can the international community afford to hesitate, contemplate or waiver in its dealing with this defiant state. No longer can we allow Iran to defer the demands of the international community without consequence.

We cannot tolerate, we will not tolerate, those who challenge Israel's right to exist while actively seeking to develop the catastrophic weapons to fulfill their goals.

America's leadership in preventing Iran's nuclearization is indisputable and unequaled. I just met my good friend, a true friend of Israel, President George W. Bush. We discussed this issue at great length. His determination to prevent this most serious of developments is unquestionable. But America must have the support of the international community if we are to successfully defuse this mortal threat.

Our actions will be measured by results, not intentions.

Our integrity will remain intact only if we prevent Iran's devious goals, not if we try our best but fail.

Our generation will be judged by its ability to ensure peace and security not by its failure to stand up to the most challenging of threats.

We did not choose this responsibility. But the burden is ours and we cannot, we will not, we shall not shy away from confronting this challenge.

Once before, calls to wipe out the Jewish people were appeased by the community of nations. Once before, but never again!

A coalition of moderate Arab countries can and must unite their common interest in preventing Iran from undermining stability in the Middle East. This coalition must struggle against the dangers of radical Islam that manipulate the very source of Islam itself. We saw this coalition forming towards the end of the fighting in Lebanon. It is crucial for this coalition to be nurtured!

Olmert gives 'word of honor' to release prisoners - News from Israel, Ynetnews

Olmert added: "I tell the Palestinians – say no to extremists. They are your enemies, and they ruined every opportunity for a real arrangement between us. I am telling you again – I'm willing to release prisoners and I was about to release many such prisoners who entered jail. In the last four months they could have been in their homes spending the Ramadan month and Id al-Fitr, and maybe they would be at home for Id al-Adha and Christmas. But you must pay attention, don't think that I am releasing all of these prisoners if Hamas continue to hold Shalit hostage. Let's sit and talk like human beings, that is all that I want."

"The Temple Mount will remain open to all worshippers forever, because this is my belief. I believe in mutual understanding, cooperation and respecting all religious faiths as a part of our lives, and I therefore say that no one will expel you from where you live and no one will evict the Palestinians from where they live," he added.

"No one will ignore the legitimate religious tradition and the legitimate concerns. We will reach the proper diplomatic outline, but allow me to start with a simple issue. The ordinary Israeli citizen says: You want to talk about Jerusalem, but look what happened in Gaza – we withdrew from there and look at the result, is this how you talk about Jerusalem? and I say that if Gaza is calm and if the message emanating from there is different, this will have a tremendous affect on the Israeli public opinion," he concluded.

Coming in 2007: An electronic ID system that works on any computer to replace all the cards in our wallets / Microsoft CardSpace

Understanding Digital Identity
Who are you? It's a simple question, but it doesn't have a simple answer. The way you represent your identity changes as you move through the world. When you present your passport at an airport's Immigration Desk, you're a citizen of some country. When you show your driver's license to a policeman who's stopped you for speeding, you're a legal driver who resides in some locality. When you use your credit card to pay for a best-selling novel at a bookstore, you're a customer with a particular account number. Different contexts require different identities, each of which is expressed in a different way and provides different information.

All of these contexts have well-understood ways for you to establish your identity. Yet, in one very important context—the networked world—identity is currently a much more muddled thing. Just as in the physical world, all of us have a variety of digital identities, and they're expressed in different ways. Today, however, there's no consistent way to deal with this portfolio of digital identities. Instead, we're left struggling in a complex, confusing, and insecure environment.

Yet different kinds of digital identities will always be necessary—no single identity will suffice. And the reality is that these identities will always be provided by a range of different sources—no single identity provider will suffice, either. This means that the solution is not to mandate a single system for digital identity, but rather to find a coherent way to use multiple digital identity systems. What's required is a system of systems—a metasystem—focused on identity.

Making this identity metasystem a reality requires cooperation. No single organization can unilaterally impose a solution. Fortunately, vendor-neutral communication standards exist that can be used to address this issue. Based on SOAP and XML, these standards include WS-Security, WS-Trust, WS-MetadataExchange, and WS-SecurityPolicy. Using these Web services technologies, it's possible to define a consistent way to work with any digital identity created by any source, using any identity technology.

Working with others, Microsoft has played a major role in defining this standards-based identity metasystem. Microsoft is also adding new capabilities to Windows to help make the identity metasystem a reality. Windows CardSpace, originally code-named "InfoCard," lets any Windows application, including Microsoft technologies such as the next release of Internet Explorer and those created by others, give its users a common way to work with digital identities. Part of the .NET Framework 3.0, CardSpace will be available for Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003, and itÂ’s scheduled to be released in early 2007.

Windows is a widely used operating system, and so Cardspace is an important part of making the identity metasystem real. Still, this solution can't succeed unless other organizations also implement it. Accordingly, Microsoft is actively encouraging the creation and use of software that can participate in the identity metasystem. The goal is to let people on any machine, running any operating system, use digital identities as easily, as effectively, and as securely as they today use their identities in the physical world.

Welcome to the MSDN Library

Microsoft's Vision for an Identity Metasystem / Microsoft Infocard or CardSpace

Summary: The Identity Metasystem is an interoperable architecture for digital identity that assumes people will have several digital identities based on multiple underlying technologies, implementations, and providers. Using this approach, customers will be able to continue to use their existing identity infrastructure investments, choose the identity technology that works best for them, and more easily migrate from old technologies to new technologies without sacrificing interoperability with others.

Digital Identity: The Challenge
For users and businesses alike, the Internet continues to be increasingly valuable. More people are using the Web for everyday tasks, from shopping, banking, and paying bills to consuming media and entertainment. E-commerce is growing, with businesses delivering more services and content across the Internet, communicating and collaborating online, and inventing new ways to connect with each other.

But as the value of what people do online has increased, the Internet itself has become more complex, criminalized, and dangerous. Online identity theft, fraud, and privacy concerns are on the rise, stemming from increasingly sophisticated practices such as "phishing". The multiplicity of accounts and passwords users must keep track of and the variety of methods of authenticating to sites result not only in user frustration, known as "password fatigue", but also insecure practices such as reusing the same account names and passwords at many sites.

The root of these problems is that the Internet was designed without a system of digital identity in mind. In efforts to address this deficiency, numerous digital identity systems have been introduced, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. But no one single system meets the needs of every digital identity scenario. And even if it were possible to create one system that did, the reality is that many different identity systems are in use today, with still more being invented. As a result, the current state of digital identity on the Internet is an inconsistent patchwork of ad hoc solutions that burdens people with different user experiences at every Web site, renders the system as a whole fragile, and constrains the fuller realization of the promise of e-commerce.

What is the Identity Metasystem?
Given that universal adoption of a single digital identity system or technology is unlikely ever to occur, a successful and widely employed identity solution for the Internet requires a different approach—one with the capability to connect existing and future identity systems into an identity metasystem. This metasystem, or system of systems, would leverage the strengths of its constituent identity systems, provide interoperability between them, and enable creation of a consistent and straightforward user interface to them all. The resulting improvements in cyberspace would benefit everyone, making the Internet a safer place with the potential to boost e-commerce, combat phishing, and solve other digital identity challenges.

In the offline world, people carry multiple forms of identification in their wallets, such as driver's licenses or other government-issued identity cards, credit cards, and affinity cards such as frequent flyer cards. People control which card to use and how much information to reveal in any given situation.

Similarly, the identity metasystem makes it easier for users to stay safe and in control when accessing resources on the Internet. It lets users select from among a portfolio of their digital identities and use them at Internet services of their choice where they are accepted. The metasystem enables identities provided by one identity system technology to be used within systems based on different technologies, provided an intermediary exists that understands both technologies and is willing and trusted to do the needed translations.

It's important to note that the identity metasystem does not compete with or replace the identity systems it connects. Rather, it plays a role analogous to that of the Internet Protocol (IP) in the realm of networking. In the 1970s and early 1980s, before the invention of IP, distributed applications were forced to have direct knowledge of the network link, be it Ethernet, Token Ring, ArcNet, X.25, or Frame Relay. But IP changed the landscape by offering a technology-independent metasystem that insulated applications from the intricacies of individual network technologies, providing seamless interconnectivity and a platform for including not-yet-invented networks (such as 802.11 wireless) into the network metasystem.

In the same way, the goals of the identity metasystem are to connect individual identity systems, allowing seamless interoperation between them, to provide applications with a technology-independent representation of identities, and to provide a better, more consistent user experience with all of them. Far from competing with or replacing the identity systems it connects, the metasystem relies on the individual systems to do its work!

Identities Function in Contexts
The identities held by a person in the offline world can range from the significant, such as birth certificates, passports, and drivers' licenses, to the trivial, such as business cards or frequent coffee buyer's cards. People use their different forms of identification in different contexts where they are accepted.

Identities can be in or out of context. Identities used out of context generally do not bring the desired result. For example, trying to use a coffee card to cross a border is clearly out of context. On the other hand, using a bank card at an ATM, a government-issued ID at a border, a coffee card at a coffee stand, and a Passport Network (formerly .NET Passport) account at MSN Hotmail are all clearly in context.

In some cases, the distinction is less clear. You could conceivably use a government-issued ID at your ATM instead of a bank-issued card, but if this resulted in the government having knowledge of each financial transaction, some people would be uncomfortable. You could use a Social Security Number as a student ID number, but that has significant privacy implications, even facilitating identity theft. And you can use Passport accounts at some non-Microsoft sites, but few sites chose to enable this; even where it was enabled, few users did so because they felt that Microsoft's participation in these interactions was out of context.

Studying the Passport experience and other digital identity initiatives throughout the industry led us to work with a wide range of industry experts to codify a set of principles that we believe are fundamental to a successful, broadly adopted, and enduring digital identity system on the Internet.

Blogger's note: Soon, all those cards in your wallet will not be needed. A simple bioscan of your finger(s), hand, and/or eyes will suffice. Is this what John was trying to explain in the book of Revelation? He thought everyone was required to have a mark on their hand or forehead in order to buy or sell. Could he have seen us having our bioscans done? (Coming in 2007)

Senior Israeli Official Warns of Possible Pre-emptive Strike against Iran

Digital Chosunilbo (English Edition) : Daily News in English About Korea

TIME.com: A Jerusalem Gay-Pride Clash Is Averted -- Page 1

One rabbi even warned that a cabal of clerics had resorted to black magic, invoking a "Pulsa Denura" ("Lashes of Fire") curse against Noah Satat, 29, the outspoken director of Jerusalem Open House, organizer of the parade. Several fanatical rabbis say that such curses led to the death of Premier Yitzhak Rabin, who was killed by a Jewish extremist for signing a peace treaty with Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, and that another malediction caused Ariel Sharon to have a stroke several months after he pulled Jewish settlers from the Gaza strip. Hexes can be laughed off, perhaps, but Satat, who has also received death threats, is now guarded by a 24-hour police escort.

In the end, the clash between gays and the keepers of Jerusalem's three faiths — in a rare display of solidarity, rabbis, priests and Muslim clerics in the holy city all united against the parade — was averted because of security fears. (Hatred of homosexuality, it seems, is the one thing that unites Islam, Judaism and Christianity in the fractious Holy City.)

Blogger's note: The three faiths were not united by hatred of homosexuality, but by love and respect for God and Jerusalem. This unity will soon grow via the Sanhedrin and the Noahide movement.

Louisville's John Yarmuth is another Jewish Democrat

The fact that he is Jewish, another Jewish candidate, neither adds nor detracts, he says. In any case, the district's small Jewish community, about 7,000-strong, votes Democratic. The others don't care either way. Most, Yarmuth supposes, are not aware of his religion, not that he tries to hide it. His CV states clearly that he was the director of a Jewish community center. A Democratic activist told me this week he believed the number of Jews in Congress could reach 30, depending on how big is the Democratic win.

Rabbinical Counsel Considers Curse on Parade Organizers

The pulsa denura is a Kabbalistic death curse which calls upon the angels of destruction to block heavenly forgiveness of the subject’s sins, cause his death and rain down upon him all the curses named in the Tanach (Bible). The term is translated from the Aramaic as “whip of fire.”

End-Time Alliance Making Plans

Prophecy reveals, however, that somewhere along the line Russia’s plans will go awry and an attack on Israel will occur. This battle, in which only 1/6th of Russia will be spared, will be supernaturally fought by the Lord God on the mountains of Israel as Ezekiel 38:22 says, "I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, and overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire and brimstone." And the Lord says in Ezekiel 39:9 of the weapons "they shall burn them with fire for seven years." The End-Time Alliance is here today. It is in place. These are the days of Ezekiel’s prophecy playing out before us. These are times when Christians must come back to their first love and be His witness.

MATISYAHU: Pop culture cries for Moshiach

MATISYAHU In pop culture, there is no dearth of Christian performers proclaiming their faith, writing songs about their god, or talking about how religion guides their lives. So, for many young Jews in America, even those who consider themselves thoroughly secular, Hasidic reggae superstar Matisyahu, with his black hat, beard and tzitzit, has been a revelation. When he cries out, “I want moshiach now,” or introduces a song with wisdom from the tales of King David, they hear the words of their childhood, of Hebrew school and holiday dinner tables. At Lollapalooza, in the midst of the war in Lebanon, with Israeli flags held aloft in the crowd, Matisyahu lept off the stage, grabbed one, and wrapped himself in the blue and white. Then he prayed for peace, providing a moment of genuine emotion and community, something rarely seen over the course of the three-day festival.

“Let this year be the end of time,” when G-d will send us Moshiach

Yes, it’s all part of G-d’s Master Plan, so that we may realize Ayn Od Milvado – “No one can save us but the Almighty G-d,” and we have no recourse but to turn to Him.

In order for that to happen however, we, the Jewish people, must immerse ourselves in Torah and mitzvos so that, yes, we – and through us, the entire world, will come to know that indeed, there is no One but Him.

In the Heavens above, everything is ready to usher in Tov Shin Samech Zion – the year that will mark the end of time and bring our redemption.

Israel Complacent - Muslims Seek to Strengthen Hold on Mount

While Israel continues to claim control of the Temple Mount, in reality, the day-to-day running of the site is under Waqf control, with Israel complying with Waqf dictates regarding the goings-on on the site. When Waqf requests are not honored by the Israeli government, threats of violence have on many occasions accomplished the Waqf?s goals.

The Temple Mount was the home of the First and Second Temples, and will house the Third Temple in the future. It remains the holiest site to the Jewish nation, far more sanctified than the Kotel (Western Wall), which is merely a retaining wall of the Mount.

Ahmadinejad added that "Iran has no problem transferring its successes and experience in any field to the Hamas government."

The victories of the Hamas and Hizbullah in Lebanon have created major problems for the criminal Zionist regime in the occupied territories and have questioned the existence of that regime around the world, including Europe and the US, the Iranian president said.

Reflections on Jewish Destiny: Getting From Here to There - Emerging From the First Flowering of Our Redemption, Part II

In essence, the religious sources suggest a monarchy with a redeemer (haMashiah ben David) playing a leading role in its governance. In the absence of a redeemer and in the wake of the collapse of the state, the logical solution suggested when a monarch is awaited is a regency council.

A group of learned rabbis established a Sanhedrin during the month of Heshván two years ago. If the religious councils are unable to function do to lack of funding, the Sanhedrin is the logical group to organize some kind of alternative.

At some point in the not too distant future, the State of Israel will pass away. What will follow is not clear, but in my opinion, this much is. It will be a Jewish entity ruled by a regency council with a Supreme Religious Court that will deal with legal and judicial issues. There will be a Jewish military, but it will not be the IDF, it will be the successor of the IDF. The rest is unclear. What is clear is that any attempt to establish an Arab entity here will fail. The bloodthirstiness of the Arabs and their inability to organize intelligently around anything but violent and murderous regimes will guarantee that Jews here will suppress them and drive them from the land.

Alright – you’ve read this far. Kol hakavód! All honor to you! What does this mean to you? Should you get involved? If so, how? Well, if you’re a Jew, this has relevance to your life whether you want it to or not. You are an inheritor of the Patrimony of Jacob and this is all part of your inheritance. You can choose to embrace and claim your inheritance and be part of the Tribe – or not. You face that choice.
