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)

Pacifism has no place in Judaism

Intolerance and holding totalitarian positions that leave no room for the other to express their identity is evil. According to Judaism’s holy texts tolerance is about respecting diversity - but it is also about passionately opposing intolerance and bigotry. Pacifism has no place in Judaism.

Indeed Judaism pioneered the concept of a preemptive strike. As the Talmud states, based on a biblical principle, “One who comes to kill you, rise up early and kill him first” (Sanhedrin 72a). The rational for this is obvious; according to Judaism the worst crime a person can commit is murder (Maimonides, Laws of Murder and Protection of Life 4:9 and Guide 3:41). Taking another person’s life is the ultimate act of arrogance and intolerance and for the sake of society a person bent on committing such an act must be eliminated.
