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)

British Police Learning about Judaism - News Briefs - Arutz Sheva

British Police Learning about Judaism - News Briefs - Arutz Sheva
British policemen are learning the basic principles and customs of Judaism to help them in their work in Jewish communities. A 15-page booklet explains the Sabbath, dietary laws and other laws and customs.

The Jewish Community Service Trust has sent the 15-page brochures to every police office. Trust official Mark Gardner explained, "We are regularly asked by police officers how they should behave when entering a synagogue, or why Orthodox Jews cannot call to report a crime on the Sabbath. It is vital that all officers understand the basic tenets of our religion, so that they can provide an effective and sensitive service to the community.”

One police superintendent said the booklet is "an excellent and timely resource." Policemen learn from the brochure that on the Jewish New Year of Rosh Hashanah and on Yom Kippur "synagogues are open all day and are extremely busy, especially for the evening service. There is likely to be a continuous flow of people on the streets throughout the day."

It also warns policemen that on Purim "consumption of alcohol is encouraged."
