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)

"Jesus Camp" and "The Lord's Boot Camp" films


JewishJournal.com

What are a secular Jew and a lapsed Catholic doing making a film about born-again Christians?

"We were interested in exploring children and faith," explained Rachel Grady, co-director of "Jesus Camp," a documentary about a summer program at which evangelical children are taught to "take back America for Christ." Grady and co-director Heidi Ewing, her partner at New York-based Loki Films, became intrigued with the subject while making their last documentary, "The Boys of Baraka," which featured a 12-year-old boy who had already found his "calling" in preaching.

No world peace without religious dialogue: Archbishop of Tehran


No world peace without religious dialogue: Archbishop of Tehran

The interfaith dialogue: Towards a universe of peace

Unless the Interfaith Movement comes centre stage, things are not going to fall into place in the global society emerging before our very eyes.

The question is not whether we are going to have a global society, but what sort of global society we are going to have. Will it be based upon exploitation, negativities, crime, hatred and fanaticism, or are we going to have a sane and harmonious global society based on interfaith understanding and peaceful conflict resolution? Like the roads in Robert Frost's poem, or indeed in the Katha Upanishad thousands of years earlier, two paths now lie before us. One could lead through a concerted and multi-dimensional quest for peace and continuing interfaith dialogue, towards a sane and equitable world civilization, in which the scarce resources of Planet Earth are used to provide the necessary material, intellectual and spiritual inputs for a decent civilized life to all human beings. The other is the path of conflict and disharmony, fundamentalism and fanaticism, which will inevitably result in the destruction of human civilization as we now know it.

Contemporary discussion has to revolve around an integrated, holistic philosophy in which human existence is looked upon as a rare gift to be utilized both for inner development and for the welfare of society and the world. It is essential that such discussions should continue to be held around the world so that, despite significant theological differences, the common factors between the various religions of the world can be highlighted. The concepts of human brotherhood, of kindness, of compassion, of respect for elders, of ecological preservation, of mutual regard for differences, need to be re-emphasized in the present age. Science and technology have given us tremendous power, but this can be used both for good and for evil, for creation and for destruction.

If used with wisdom and compassion, we now have the capacity to eliminate poverty, malnutrition, hunger and many diseases from the face of the Earth. However, we see that technology is also being used for escalation in weapons of destruction, and that, obnoxious activities such as gun-running, drug proliferation and, most shameful of all, trafficking in human beings including children continue to flourish. Despite all the much-vaunted achievements of modern civilization, it is a shame and disgrace that such activities continue unabated and, in fact, seem to be growing. Related to this is the growth of terrorism worldwide which has injected an element of insecurity, fear and even paranoia into large sections of the world’s population.

It is my firm belief that a dialogue between the great religions of the world, including what are known as the “traditional religions,” is the only way to create an atmosphere of peace and harmony and ensure the welfare of the human race, specially the emancipation of half the world’s population that still lives on or below the poverty line in a state of deprivation and suffering. Millions of the world’s children still suffer from hunger and malnutrition, and grow up stunted in body and mind due to lack of crucial nutritional inputs during their childhood. If the vast resources of religious organizations could be used to help our future citizens and strengthening the Interfaith Movement, it could go a long way towards improving the human condition.

Why Hamas Resists Recognizing Israel -- Page 1

In the Western and Israeli narrative, Israel's creation is seen as redress for centuries of Jewish suffering in Europe culminating in the Holocaust. In the Palestinian and Arab narrative, Israel's creation meant the violent displacement of hundreds of thousands of people from their homes and another Arab humiliation at Western hands. So, while May 15 is celebrated by Israelis as Yom Haatzmaut (independence day), the Palestinians mark the same day as the somber anniversary of Al-Nakbah (the catastrophe).

Treasures looted by Rome 'are back in the Holy Land' - World - Times Online

After a decade of research into previously untapped ancient texts and archaeological sources, Dr Kingsley has reconstructed the treasure’s route for the first time in 2,000 years to provide evidence that it left Rome in the 5th century.

He has discovered that it was taken to Carthage, Constantinople and Algeria before being hidden in the Judaean wilderness, beneath the Monastery of Theodosius.

Dr Kingsley said: “The treasure resonates fiercely across modern politics. Since the mid-1990s, a heated political wrangle has been simmering between the Vatican and Israel, which has accused the papacy of imprisoning the treasure.

“The Temple treasure remains a deadly political tool in the volatile Arab-Israeli conflict centred on the Temple Mount [the site of the Jewish Temple and the Muslim Dome of the Rock].

“The treasure’s final hiding place – in the modern West Bank . . . deep in Hamas territory – will rock world religions.”

Emperor Vespasian ordered the destruction of the Temple at Jerusalem after a Jewish revolt and Roman forces took about 50 tons of gold, silver and precious art to Rome.

Judaism 101: Olam Ha-Ba: The Afterlife

Traditional Judaism firmly believes that death is not the end of human existence. However, because Judaism is primarily focused on life here and now rather than on the afterlife, Judaism does not have much dogma about the afterlife, and leaves a great deal of room for personal opinion. It is possible for an Orthodox Jew to believe that the souls of the righteous dead go to a place similar to the Christian heaven, or that they are reincarnated through many lifetimes, or that they simply wait until the coming of the messiah, when they will be resurrected. Likewise, Orthodox Jews can believe that the souls of the wicked are tormented by demons of their own creation, or that wicked souls are simply destroyed at death, ceasing to exist.

Belief in the eventual resurrection of the dead is a fundamental belief of traditional Judaism. It was a belief that distinguished the Pharisees (intellectual ancestors of Rabbinical Judaism) from the Sadducees. The Sadducees rejected the concept, because it is not explicitly mentioned in the Torah. The Pharisees found the concept implied in certain verses.

The place of spiritual reward for the righteous is often referred to in Hebrew as Gan Eden (GAHN ehy-DEHN) (the Garden of Eden). This is not the same place where Adam and Eve were; it is a place of spiritual perfection. Specific descriptions of it vary widely from one source to another. One source says that the peace that one feels when one experiences Shabbat properly is merely one-sixtieth of the pleasure of the afterlife. Other sources compare the bliss of the afterlife to the joy of sex or the warmth of a sunny day. Ultimately, though, the living can no more understand the nature of this place than the blind can understand color.

Only the very righteous go directly to Gan Eden. The average person descends to a place of punishment and/or purification, generally referred to as Gehinnom (guh-hee-NOHM) (in Yiddish, Gehenna), but sometimes as She'ol or by other names. According to one mystical view, every sin we commit creates an angel of destruction (a demon), and after we die we are punished by the very demons that we created. Some views see Gehinnom as one of severe punishment, a bit like the Christian Hell of fire and brimstone. Other sources merely see it as a time when we can see the actions of our lives objectively, see the harm that we have done and the opportunities we missed, and experience remorse for our actions. The period of time in Gehinnom does not exceed 12 months, and then ascends to take his place on Olam Ha-Ba.

Only the utterly wicked do not ascend at the end of this period; their souls are punished for the entire 12 months. Sources differ on what happens at the end of those 12 months: some say that the wicked soul is utterly destroyed and ceases to exist while others say that the soul continues to exist in a state of consciousness of remorse.

The Gerrer Rebbe Shlit"a was one of the first who predicted the coming of Mashiah for the year 5767, and it's brought down in the name of Rav Kaduri that on Yom Hakippurim, 5766, the soul of Mashiah was transfered to a Jew "from Yisrael", and there are a lot of posts about this on the site.

The solar eclipse that occurred at the end of the month of Adar, 5766, also foretells, according to ancient and correct sources, the soon coming of the Mashiah. (For an additional explanation on the eclipse, one should look here.)

Abbas Says Palestinian Unity Government Will Recognize Israel

The Arab League proposal, accepted last month in Beirut, includes elements of a final status that the U.S. and Israel have rejected, such as Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital. Bahrain, as current chair of the Arab League, represented the group.

Abbas, who didn't say when a new government will be formed, finished his speech with a warning that echoed former leader Yasser Arafat's appearance before the General Assembly in 1974. Arafat wielded an olive branch and an AK-47 assault rifle and urged the world not to let the former fall from his hand.

``I am repeating this same call: do not let the olive branch fall from my hand, do not let the olive branch fall from my hand,'' Abbas said.

The Pope, Jihad, and “Dialogue”

We’re all three Abrahamic religions, we’re the three Middle Eastern monotheisms, the Isa of the Koran is really the same as the Jesus of the New Testament…. This is politicized dialogue. This is dialogue for the sake of dialogue. Philosophically speaking, this is what Kierkegaard called idle talk, snakke in Danish; what Heidegger called Gerede; what Sartre called bavardage. In other words, if this is dialogue, it’s pathetic… it needs to be transcended, and specifically to concentrate, to focus on the common ethical foundation for most religions can also be very misleading. Because when you get into the nitty-gritty, you find that even in what you supposed were common ethical foundations, there are vast differences, incompatibilities. Suicide bombers is one recent example. Condoned by major authoritative Muslim voices; completely unacceptable by Christianity.

Chabad movement gaining followers in South Florida

The number of households that affiliate with Chabad in South Florida has more than doubled over the past decade, and so has the number of Chabad congregations.

In 1990, about 615 households supported seven Chabad centers in Broward. Six years later, Chabad had added four more places and another 600 families. Sheskin is surveying Broward to get current data, but he believes the numbers have at least doubled again in the past 10 years.

In Miami-Dade County, 10 Chabad establishments were on record in 2004 compared to only five in 1994. And while most Chabad synagogues don't keep membership numbers, Sheskin estimates that about 1,000 households in Miami-Dade attend Chabad synagogues regularly, compared to 448 in 1994.

''In a lot of places, Chabad is becoming the only game in town,'' said J.J. Goldberg, editor of The Forward, a national Jewish weekly newspaper. ``They are in places you wouldn't expect. The Chabad is trying to be anywhere Jews are.''

Moeller: I guess it really means whether it’s positive or negative, you have to look at the individual cases of what the basis of the dialogue is. I don’t know that you can ‘dialogue’ with someone who wants to kill you and won’t be dissuaded from that position. On the other hand, I think that there is the opportunity to examine the principles and the underpinning behind radical Islam versus historic Christianity. Unfortunately, those that are engaged in dialogue more often with the Muslim extremist, are people who don’t have a true Christian faith. They have a cultural Christianity or they have a liberal Christianity but it’s not real true faith. And they’re willing to compromise Christian principles in order to make peace. We find that’s the worse way to make peace because your enemy will not respect what you believe. We find the best way to make peace is to go to your enemy in love and bring them hope in boldness, the hope of Jesus Christ. That’s where we see real dialogue and real peace taking place. It’s where Christians take up the responsibilities of their belief and live out Jesus’ admonition to love your enemies. And the enemies can’t believe that and they are the ones who are responding. But I believe where Christianity is compromised, the respect from Islam goes down.

I put it this way: in many Muslim countries, Christianity is a permitted religion. You can practice your Christian faith as long as you don’t proselytize and as long as you don’t convert. But you can gather for your worship services and you can meet. In most of these countries, Christians are discriminated against but they’re permitted. I don’t believe that that’s what Jesus had in mind when he said the gates of hell will not prevail against you. And he also wasn’t interested in seeing people not care about their neighbor’s coming to faith in Christ. I believe that a compromised Christianity can have all the dialogue it wants with Islam or Buddhism or Hinduism but it will never be true Christianity because in true Christianity, we have a message of hope that can’t be compromised.

"This is amazing -- very un-Chinese and very historic."

Amidst fanfare seldom seen in China, evangelist Luis Palau and Zhao Qizheng recently released their highly anticipated, co-written book, Riverside Talks: A Friendly Dialogue between an Atheist and a Christian.


The book's release took place during a packed press conference at the Beijing International Book Fair (BIBF). The media event was cut short when the enthusiastic crowd of assembled journalists, photographers and TV crews rushed forward to interview the authors and get autographed copies of the historic book.


"This is the first time in the history of China that an international religious leader has been permitted to sign copies of his book in a large public secular venue," says Shen Weiping, vice president of the China Association for International Friendly Contact (CAIFC). For the fourth time in two years, the CAIFC hosted Palau at a state dinner held at the Diayutai Government House, considered the "Camp David of China."


Another senior government official says of the press conference, "This is amazing -- very un-Chinese and very historic."


At two different press events well-attended by mainstream national Chinese media, Palau carefully explained what it means to be a true follower of Jesus Christ and how someone can find peace with God.

The Media Calls him Al Qaeda, but his Jewish Father calls him Adam Pearlman

What the CNN article never mentions is that Adam Gadhn, or “Azzam the American,” as the media likes to refer to him, is in reality a Jew from California named Adam Pearlman. I’m not kidding reader, I’m as serious as a heart attack, Azzam the American is a Jew. CNN isn’t the only negligent news agency, not a single one of the television networks have mentioned Gadahn’s/Pearlman’s pedigree, not one. The only news source I am aware of that has mentioned the fact that “Azzam the American” is Jewish, was the LA Times and the Washington Post, and then only in the most cryptic manner.
