About Me

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)

Rabbi Levi Brackman - Separation of Church & State

This is where Judaism differs radically. Judaism does not believe that all people must accept the Jewish religion; in fact it discourages gentiles who would like to convert. Furthermore Judaism is first and foremost a religion of practice[2]; philosophy and theology are secondary. Finally, traditionally Judaism’s supreme judicial body, the Sanhedrin, was independent of the governing establishment. Thus according to Talmudic law the government could not control judicial decisions[3].

When religions of the world become more tolerant of diversity and begin to recognize the rights of others to think and believe differently to them, we may no longer need a separation of church and state. Until that time however this separation is an ingenious device that imposes upon religions the Judaic value of tolerance and love of the stranger. Its integrity must be protected at all costs.
