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)

Kabbalah book to "provide readers who are not students of the Kabbalah enough insight to view the Book of Genesis [and Jesus] in a different light..."
Soon after, The New York Times reviewed "Genesis Through the Mystical Light of the Kabbalah." The reviewer said: "Detailed explanations of Kabbalah concepts such as The Tree of Life and the Four Worlds of the universe provide readers who are not students of the Kabbalah enough insight to view the Book of Genesis in a different light and ultimately with better understanding."
Three more books followed, which are available on Amazon.com.

Mahatma Gandhi used by Chief Rabbi David Rosen to sneak the Seven Laws of Noah through the back door of The South Asia Interfaith Harmony Conclave
“Because religion seeks to give meaning and purpose to whom we are, it is inextricably bound up with all the different components of human identity right from the most basic unit of a family to larger ethnic groups and nations to the widest components of humanity and creation as a whole. These components of human identity are the building blocks of our psycho-spiritual well-being and we deny them at our peril,” said Chief Rabbi David Rosen, president, International Jewish Committee for Inter-religious Consultations.
“Contemporary society — multicultural, multi-ethnic and even multi-religious — has to find the fundamental shared values that can enable it to function as a collective society at the same time,” he further said.
Interestingly, all religions propagate the same fundamental values. “In the Bible it finds mention in the expression ‘Love thy neighbour as yourself’; in the Koran it is, ‘no one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself’; in Buddhism it finds expression in terms such as ‘hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful’,” Dr Khwaja Iftikar Ahmed, founder president, Inter Faith Harmony Foundation of India firmly reiterated.
He further added that “to attain ultimate peace in the world the yawning gulf between Muslims, Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus and the other faiths must be bridged and this can be done only through dialogue.” The concept of ‘Sarva Dharma Sambhav’ reiterates the key message — the need of the hour is not just ‘tolerance’ but ‘harmony’.

In a statement Jane Hunter and Rabbi Haim Dov Beliak, co-founders of the website JewsOnFirst.org, said that "Hagee's call in his speech for victory for Israel and America (which appears to refer to Iran) is not necessarily the call for military victory which his audience might have heard (a chilling prospect nonetheless). Hagee's "victory" is coded language for Armgadeddon, which Christian Zionists see as the end-times battles set in Israel, when Christians are raptured to heaven and Jews lose -- unless they're happy to convert."
Blogger's note: Jane Hunter and Rabbi Haim Dov Beliak should have said, "unless they're happy to accept Jesus Christ as the only Lord and Savior that He is."
Rabbi David Rosen president of IJCIC, the International Jewish Committee that represents World Jewry in its relations with other world religions, says: "Any liturgy that presents Jews as being doomed in their faith doesn't present a very healthy attitude towards Judaism and the Jewish people."
"Relations have undergone a profound transformation [since Vatican II]. I don't think there is any danger of backsliding in terms of the Church indulging in anti-Semitism or anything like that," he told the BBC News website from Jerusalem.
But he says the move comes within the context of "a certain revival of what might be called conservative theology within the Church."
"Conservative theology itself is not necessarily bad for relations with the Jewish people and even if Catholics believe their path is the absolute truth, that shouldn't contradict the ability to respect the integrity of others' identity and choice," he says.
"And, certainly in America, you have certain voices in the Catholic Church, calling for the conversion of Jews on television," said Mr Pawlikowski, professor of Social Ethics at the Catholic Theological Union in Illinois.

Rabbi Yehuda Kroizer, the rabbi of Mitzpeh Yericho, says we have forgotten some of the basics, and reminds us to keep our eyes on the ball, no matter how far off it is:
"The birth of the Nation of Israel was accompanied by the obligatory triple bonds of Nation-Torah-Land... As our Sages (Sifrei Ekev 42) taught, "The entire fulfillment of the Torah is only in the Land of Israel; we fulfill it outside the Land only so that it not be forgotten while we are in Exile."
The secular Zionist movement strengthened the link between the Nation and its Land, but harmed the bond between these two and the Torah. Over the years of the State's existence, we, the religious public, have downplayed our demand to link the State and Jewish Law, and 'this is why this trouble has come upon us.' The time has therefore come to demand and act to establish a Jewish Torah state in the Land of Israel. It must be based on these principles:
The boundaries must be those promised to Abraham at the Covenant of the Pieces...
Non-Jews living here will be given two choices - to either leave, with the help of a special emigration office that will be established, or to accept upon themselves the Seven Noahide Laws before a Jewish Legal Court, thus acquiring for themselves rights of residency and work, but not political rights.
A King will head the State, and the Sanhedrin will head the legal framework. The State's laws will be those of the Torah, and the police will be enjoined to enforce them. The State must build the Holy Temple, thus reviving full Divine service and restoring Israel to its proper place as a light unto the nations (see Isaiah 2,3).
The Redemption will not fall from the sky [Rabbi Kroizer concludes], and it is dependent upon us. We must believe that it is within our power to bring about and implement the revolutionary change. We must remember that the path is likely to be long and difficult; it is not incumbent upon us to complete it, but neither may we neglect it for a moment. Even if some aspects are not possible to carry out at present, it is important that the goals be clear. May G-d grant blessing to our actions and enable us to see quickly the complete Redemption of Israel.

In Maui, at a New Age gift shop, a woman in a sarong pays for a candle in the shape of the Buddha, a bundle of sage used in Native American ceremonies and a copy of "Becoming Like God: Kabbalah and Our Ultimate Destiny," by Michael Berg.
At a Baltimore bookstore, a young man wearing a cross around his neck pours over a copy of "Kabbalah for Dummies," as he sips his Starbucks.
In Lilongwe, Malawi, a white woman ties a red wool string around the thin brown wrist of a young boy.
And the Web site at the Bnei Baruch World Center for Kabbalah Studies gets 2.5 million views a month, translated into 22 languages.
What was once shrouded in mystery and the exclusive domain of educated Jewish males over the age of 40 is now as accessible as the King James Bible. At the same time that more and more non-Jews unite to study and engage in some of Judaism's most sacred and intimate texts, the schisms among Jews who draw upon the same teachings grow ever wider.
In light of this, the ever-expanding world of Kabbalah scholars are increasingly asking: What are the ramifications of Kabbalah becoming a universal spiritual path? Is there a way to keep it authentic and anchored to its Jewish roots?
These were some of the concerns that compelled Rabbi Yakov Travis of Tiferet Institute in Cleveland to orchestrate an unprecedented forum of rabbis, professors, authors, scholars and spiritual seekers with radically different approaches to Jewish mysticism.
Blogger's note: A man must accept Jesus as Lord or deny Jesus totally. Come judgement day, I wouldn't want to be the one saying, "Well, I'm still on the fence about who Jesus is."
Blogger's note: I'm so happy to be a Protestant that realizes that the "limbo of infants" is biblically ridiculous.
Blogger's note: Jesus is allowing the nation that denied Him to prosper greatly in these last days. Jesus is allowing Satan to place Israel temporarily upon a pedestal before the world, only so that Satan can then humiliate them before the world. Only then, will they turn completely to Jesus for their salvation and Satan will be bound and unable to orchestrate his hoax any more.
Satan knows this to be a fact and is doing what he can. How about you?
Protests took place outside his home, and he was viciously attacked in the right-wing religious press. Three months ago, after Naveh signed orders forbidding dozens of settlers from living in the West Bank outposts, a group of rabbis calling themselves the Sanhedrin signed a herem, officially ostracizing Naveh.
Blogger's note: Way to go Janet! Christian money should only go to Christian Jews. Amen.

Why does Jerry Falwell support John Hagee while Hagee leads Jewish children to rabbis rather than to Jesus Christ?
Blogger's note: Fast forward to the last half of this July, 2006 radio interview with Hagee.

Blogger's note: Very good book.
Blogger's note: Jesus was a Jew. The word Jew can be used with Christian love. Meaning, Jesus offers salvation to all people, including Jews, Jewish people, or followers of Judaism that turn to Christ no matter how you label them. Jesus and Christians can use all these labels in the love of Jesus Christ the Lord.
May many Jewish people turn to Christ in these last days. Amen.
Blogger's note: Has Google also been influenced to consider giving explanations for search results for these words?: Jesus, Christ, Messiah, Christian, New Testament, etc. Satan is very busy in these end days.

Blogger's note: This document, as I understand it, states that Catholics are to evangelize the Jewish people allowing the Jewish people the free will to decide, for or against, regarding Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and the validity of the Trinity. In other words, evangelize passionately but do not force.
This would be consistent with the correct motive and action of biblical Christian evangelism with the exception that Jesus Christ is the ONLY Savior, NOT only Jesus AND the Catholic Church.
Though many Orthodox Jews remain wary of the Mormon presence here, others say the church has made good on its promise not to use Brigham Young University’s Jerusalem Center to proselytize.
Last October, The Salvation Army’s Moscow branch won a lengthy court battle against the Russian government over the group’s legal status in the country. But according to the Moscow branch’s lawyer, Anatoli Pchelintsev, “the problem remains”.
After a five-year court struggle, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) unanimously ruled against the Russian state for refusing to approve The Salvation Army’s registration application and for labelling it a “militarised organisation”.
But since then, little has changed, says Pchelintsev. The Russian government seems set to pay The Salvation Army Moscow the 10,000 euros compensation due to it by 5 April, but has yet to re-register the branch or to renounce official denigration of the group as a ‘paramilitary organisation’, said Forum 18 news agency.
"If they'd wanted to sort this out, they would have done so already. They had five years while our [ECHR] application was pending,” he said.
In the Pacific's predominantly Christian Solomon Islands, struggling with earthquake and tsunami losses, frightened villagers descended from the hills to celebrate Easter.
"Maybe it's a punishment from God," said one worshipper, Furner Smith Arebonato. "Before, there were few people in church. Now, after (the) earthquake, the church is filled with people, some of them never went to church before."
Today over 70 percent of Muslim media are controlled by the Wahhabis who 'almost intentionally kill interfaith peace in Russia
Still the Russian Islam is 'in the deepest crisis' today, which has been mainly due to absence of a normal system of clergy training.
Though there are 4,000 Muslim communities in Russia, 'today they simply lack a new generation of imams who could come to these mosques,' Silantyev said.
According to him, only three or four Russian muftis are fluent in Arabic while Muslim universities give only a few specialists a year.
In these circumstances non-traditional Islamic sects grow and radical ideas spread rapidly. Today over 70 percent of Muslim media are controlled by the Wahhabis who 'almost intentionally kill interfaith peace in Russia,' he said.
According to Silantyev's own research data, some fifty Russian traditionalist imams have been murdered by Wahhabis for the last twelve years in Russia.
The islamologist noted that it was important that the state interfered into the situation and backed Russia's traditional Islam.
'If this tendency develops and the government makes no real steps to stop it, Russia's millennium-old interfaith peace will come to an end. The proportion of Muslims who want peace with Christians will become too small,' Silantyev added.
...the same time the number of ethnic Muslims in Russia is more or less known and estimated to be 14.5 million, Silantyev said. Yet surveys say that there are only 7 to 9 million people who adhere to the Islamic faith in Russia.
Another popular myth is a mass conversion of ethnic Russian to Islam, he added.
'Less than 3,000 ethnic Russian have converted to Islam for the last 15 years,' Silantyev said.
According to the researcher, for the same period almost 2 million ethic Muslims have become Orthodox Christians for the same period. Over 400 Russian Orthodox clergy belong to traditionally Muslim ethnic groups, 20 percent of Tatars are Christian, and 70 percent of interfaith marriages result in the Muslim spouse conversion to Christianity.

Kabbalah, Judaism, and Noahidism are listed in order of priority; meaning Kabbalah is the foundation and theology of Judaism and Noahidism according to many leaders of those disciplines. These subjects are extremely spiritually dangerous. They should be approached prayerfully only by a seasoned Christian under the guidance and protection of the Holy Spirit or a so chaperoned understudy.
Blogger's note: Israel will soon make peace with Muslims via the Seven Laws of Noah.
Blogger's note: The Seder must end at midnight (signifying the end-of-days). The last bite tasted at the end of the Seder must be the afikoman (signifying that Jesus will be the last "taste" for mankind at the end of these end-times). Maranatha!

The ultimate question that Jesus asked is: Who do you say I AM? (Mark 8:29)
Death and taxes are really not certain, but it is certain that God will ask each of us that ultimate question. How will you be able to answer God?

The matzoh is pierced, as Jesus was, and has no leaven, a symbol for sin, as Jesus was without sin, he said.
Goldstein acknowledged that some Jews find his message offensive.
Growing up, he said, he was taught that Jesus is not for the Jews.
"The traditional Jewish view is that a Jew who believes in Jesus is considered a traitor to his people," he said.
He said he discovered as a young adult that Jesus was the Jewish Messiah, and that he could be 100 percent Jewish and 100 percent Christian.
Goldstein said about 5,000 Jews among the 5 million Jews in Israel recognize Jesus as the Messiah.
Rabbi Charles Sherman, Temple Israel, said that each faith tradition has a right to interpret symbols in accordance with its beliefs, and all faith traditions have borrowed from others.
"Our problem is with this aberration called 'Jews for Jesus,' " he said.
"One cannot believe just anything one wants and still retain the title 'Jew.'
"The belief in Jesus Christ as lord, savior, messiah, son of God, or the like, is clearly a central tenet of Christianity, and it is incompatible with Judaism as we Jews understand Judaism," he said.
"We have great respect for those who are indeed true Christians. We would hope that all Christians would have the self-respect to so label themselves and not fly under false colors pretending to at the same time be Jews.
"In our opinion, 'Jews for Jesus' is a contradiction of terms," the rabbi said. "Mr. Goldstein is by us a Christian; perhaps at one time he was Jewish, but he is no longer, and for him to claim to be Jewish is fraudulent, deliberating misleading and insulting."

All the toil and tribulation of humankind can be explained this way: Why do we have free choice? Why must we blunder about in the dark? Why all this struggle? All because G-d is good and wishes for us the ultimate good. "Free bread," the sages say, "is bread of shame." If you truly want to give to others, give them the opportunity to earn the gift. That's dignified bread. So G-d allows us to struggle, so we can feel a sense of ownership to the fruits of our toil.
Blogger's note: Our toil and trubulation is due to man's sinful nature. God wishes us "the ultimate good;" that we would accept his "Free bread" of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savoir. "That's dignified bread" because it is God's will. "We can feel a sense of ownership because God delights in giving us grace through Jesus Christ the Lord. This is the ultimate truth. If you are involved in Kabbalah or Noahidism, think about this ultimate truth. Amen.
Blogger's note: "According to tradition???"
"It's totally inappropriate," said Rabbi Ira Youdovin, executive vice president of the Chicago Board of Rabbis. He added the Easter installation differs from Christmas, when Jewish and Muslim symbols are also present on the Plaza. Youdovin particularly objects to a Sunday sunrise service to be held at the site.

Cultural change has historically been introduced via arts and entertainment initially.
The U.S. now knows Iran’s true extent of power and determination to defend its rights. Iran has shrugged off two resolutions endorsed by the permanent members of the UN Security Council. Also nothing guarantees that Russia and China would agree to any sanctions against Iran that require blockade and interception.
Ties between China, Iran, and Russia have long worried Washington. As once described by Asia Times' Jephraim P. Gundzik,
“Beijing's increasingly close ties with Moscow and Tehran will thwart Washington's foreign policy goal of expanding U.S. security footholds in the Middle East, Central Asia and Asia. However, the primacy of economic stability will most likely prevent a proxy-style military confrontation, in Iran or North Korea, between China and the U.S.”
“Initially, Moscow supported Washington's 'war on terrorism'. However, the US invasion of Iraq changed this support into resistance, and later into active efforts to counterbalance the US. In the past two years both Washington and Moscow have sought to strengthen their influence in Central Asia and the Caucasus. ... More significantly, Moscow is working diligently to strengthen its ties with Iran, Syria and China - countries that Washington considers to be adversaries," Gundzik wrote in March 2005.
Since the outbreak of Iraq war in March 2003,
“Beijing has worked feverishly ... in an apparent effort to prevent US military action against the remaining 'axis of evil' members, Iran and North Korea. In addition to recent massive energy deals with Teheran, which place Iran in China's security web, both Beijing and Moscow have accelerated the transfer of missile technology to Teheran, while selling the Islamic republic increasingly sophisticated military equipment.
"Armed with a vast array of anti-ship and long-range missiles, Iran can target U.S. troop positions throughout the Middle East and strike U.S. Navy ships. Iran can also use its weapons to blockade the Straits of Hormuz through which one-third of the world's traded oil is shipped. With the help of Beijing and Moscow, Teheran is becoming an increasingly unappealing military target for the U.S.”
Moreover, the Iranian-British crisis sent clear signals that if any “UN forces” are moved against the Islamic Republic in the Gulf, it would easily halt exports and imports of oil.
Gulf states' support
In case the U.S. initiated war, it would trigger fears among all Gulf states who would immediately move to defend themselves. The Arab states have been voicing concern over Iran’s nuclear power, but they surely fear the U.S. barbarism and crimes, witnessed in different forms in Iraq, more.
Also, as many analysts have explained, a U.S. war against Iran, would surely be aimed at protecting Israel, more than anything else. There’s no reason for the European Union to join or support a war aimed at protecting Israel. European states fear skyrocketing oil prices, which have now reached $65 a barrel.
Are these "rules for libraries" legal?
If so, are similar "rules" being applied to other "public information" sources?
Laurie Richter, a 28 year old lawyer, was ordered by the condo association to remove her mezuzah shortly after she had put it up in December, because the association's rules prohibit displaying anything on exterior walls and doors, which are considered common property.
Incensed, Richter contacted newspapers and television stations. Eventually, her case received national coverage.

Soon, but perhaps after great tribulations, a temporary and false world peace will come via an agreement between religions on the harmonic basics of all faiths through the Seven Laws of Noah. This will be upon the foundation of Kabbalah and Judaism and practically lead by the Sanhedrin. Together, the faiths will allow the Third Temple to be rebuilt on the Temple Mount. The only people that will not participate in this panacea are Christians that hold fast to Jesus Christ as Lord and the Trinity. Watch.

In Chicago, Sam Zell is "one of the biggest property owners in the country." [ALLEN, J. p. C1] Zell built his fortune on slum lording or, as the Chicago Tribune puts its, the "buying of distressed properties and resurrecting them ... Zell acquired troubled apartment buildings in Florida, Reno, and Las Vegas." [ELSNER, p. C1] "If you viewed us as a group," said partner Burton Kanter, "we were the biggest landlords in Reno." [ELSNER, p. C1] In 1976 Zell and three associates were indicted in a tax shelter scheme over a Reno hotel transaction. Zell cut a deal with the government, but his brother-in-law went to prison.
