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)

Iran government backs parliament's 'terrorist' label for US army, CIA - International Herald Tribune

Iran government backs parliament's 'terrorist' label for US army, CIA - International Herald Tribune
The U.S. Senate voted Wednesday in favor of a resolution urging the State Department to designate the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization. Charged with defending the system put in place after Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution, the Guards answer to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and are revered by many for their defense of the country during the 1980s war with Saddam Hussein's Iraq.

The legislative move to classify Shiite Muslim-dominated Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard force as terrorist would be first such move against a foreign government entity and would freeze any of its assets under U.S. jurisdiction.

It would also allow the U.S. Treasury Department to move against firms subject to U.S. law that do business with the Guard, which have vast commercial interests at home and abroad.

Abbas: No 'Land Exchanges' in Final Agreement - News Briefs - Arutz Sheva
Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas in an interview Saturday rejected any talk of “land exchanges” for settlement blocs in a final status agreement between Israel and the PA. “Before 1947, we had 95 percent of Palestine,” Abbas told the Washington Post. “In 1937, the partition plan gave the Israelis only part of Palestine. And they were very happy at that time... Now, we accept [the pre-'67 borders]." This condition includes Jewish neighborhoods in Jerusalem built on land liberated in the 1967 Six Day War. “I say and 
have always said that East Jerusalem is an occupied territory. We have to 
restore it,” he said.

The Shape of Peace in Our Time—From Jerusalem to Ends of the World

American Chronicle: The Shape of Peace in Our Time—From Jerusalem to Ends of the World
Praying for the peace of Jerusalem therefore means praying for its restoration. God chose Jerusalem as His capital on earth. Jerusalem is the center from which God’s covenant and law radiates throughout the world. The diplomatic missions of God’s kingdom originate in Jerusalem. The unity of Jerusalem under those who honor the covenant is imperative. The Temple Mount must be restored to Zion. It must be restored not only so that the Temple can be built but also so that the divine peace plan can be completed.

The Messiah must come so it can be realized.

A restored Temple means a restored Jerusalem, which means a restored Israel. Ultimately, it means true and lasting peace for Israel and for the entire world. Leaders of Israel will become leaders of Zion. Leader of the world will become governors in the God’s kingdom. The global community will live in peace because tolerance of immortality will no longer be tolerated. The law of God will be the law of the land in every land. Retribution for wrongs done will be tempered with restorative mercy. Because justice and righteousness will dominate, the poor will no longer live impoverished either by disease or by the rich.

Liberals fear a theocratic peace because many abuses of power resulted from human corruption. History teaches that the same problems occur under religious and secular governments. Liberals seem blind to the fact that the tolerance of moral relativism based on radical egalitarianism is the reason why peace is never achieved. Eliminating God and His law from human government has never produced a lasting just society. Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s Soviet Union, Mao’s China, and Saddam’s Iraq are just a few examples. Therefore, the realization of a global theocracy envisioned by God’s law is the solution.

Paul Eidelberg, founder of The Foundation for Constitutional Democracy, provides a clue as to what governments based on the law of God would look like. In Torah Government Versus Israeli Democracy, he describes a king chosen by the people and subject to the Sanhedrin. Laws made by this court also conform to a consensus of counsel as well as acceptance of the people. He goes on to describe this type of popular government as structured on federalist principles and a citizenry well educated in the law. Above king, courts, and people is God.

When God thus becomes King of kings, of presidents, of prime ministers, of governors, and of peoples, then gentiles will flock to Jerusalem at least once a year to honor the King. God’s ambassadors will be (and are) sought out for their understanding of God’s covenantal law. Because God’s covenantal law is known and enforced throughout the world, covenantal law will contour the shape of global peace. Multicultural variations of national identity may color the application of this law, but the common framework will be covenantal law governing the politics of nations. When this happens, their will be genuine peace in our time.

Rabbi Shmuley Boteach shares the "wisdom" of his mind that denies Jesus Christ as Lord

Rabbi Shmuley Boteach: Should A Twice-Divorced Man Be President? - Politics on The Huffington Post
Rabbi Shmuley Boteach is about to launch 'The Jewish Values Network,' dedicated to the dissemination of Jewish values in the mainstream media.

If you haven’t noticed, Jewish ideas, values, personalities, and culture are becoming mainstream in the American media

Jewish and Israel News from New York - The Jewish Week
For the first time in Jewish history we have the capability to bring Jewish values to a mainstream, international audience. Rather than enticing Jews to come to our community, we can so seamlessly integrate Judaism into the mainstream culture so that no Jew can escape it.

We can make Judaism and Jewish values so central to American life that wherever anyone turns to TV, radio, the Internet and print, they will bump into something Jewish.

If you haven’t noticed, Jewish ideas, values, personalities, and culture are becoming mainstream in the American media. From my own national TV show that proudly features a rabbi with a yarmulke and tzitzis who uses Jewish values to heal largely non-Jewish American families, to radio hosts like Dennis Prager and Michael Medved who disseminate Jewish values on the airwaves, to Wendy Mogel who wrote one of the country’s most influential parenting books based on Jewish teachings and the Talmud, to Matisyahu who brings Jewish lyrics and themes to mainstream music, to Rabbi Harold Kushner who for decades has been writing highly successful best-sellers all based on Jewish ideas and which are read by millions of non-Jews, to the mainstreaming of Kabbalah among Hollywood celebrities, Jewish values are molding the mainstream culture. It is time that we chose to greatly accelerate this trend.

The key, as I learned when I served as a rabbi at Oxford University in my early twenties, was not to try to create a haven for Jewish students, like Hillel. Rather it was to make Oxford more Jewish. So we created an organization that sought mainstream membership from all of Oxford’s students and brought in speakers from Mikhail Gorbachev to Stephen Hawking, and within two years of its founding, had over 5,000 non-Jewish members.

Suddenly, non-Jewish students were dragging their Jewish friends to Jewish events, including Friday night Shabbat dinners where many tasted of a Jewish experience for the very first time. And rather than encouraging assimilation through the participation of non-Jews, our students began to develop a pride in their identities, especially after seeing how excited their non-Jewish friends were about Judaism. Judaism was made so high profile that even non-Jewish students started becoming conversant with Jewish basics. And suddenly for the Jewish students no Jewish choice was necessary.

We can do the same on a wider scale in the popular American culture. Some ideas in this vein would be:

The creation of a professional think-tank consisting of national personalities who have had success in the mainstreaming of Jewish ideas in the popular culture. They would disseminate Jewish values dealing with important issues like marriage, child rearing, business ethics, and politics.
A campaign launched to harness the next generation of mainstreamers of Judaism, identifying those gifted as television hosts, radio hosts, authors, bloggers, and lecturers who can bring out the universal qualities of Judaism for a mainstream audience.
The creation of a national, weekly class to be offered on Jewish values in synagogues and JCCs across America with a curriculum that appeals to Jews and non-Jews alike.
The creation of an organization to publish in a timely fashion books, blogs, and literature that offer the Jewish values-view on every aspect under the sun.
The creation of a highly professional Jewish-values based production company to package and create entertaining TV shows to be offered to the mainstream networks.

The implementation of these ideas stands the best chance of bringing the universality of Judaism and Jewish values for the very first time to the epicenter of American intellectual, cultural, and political life. I am working on the implementation of some of these ideas in a new organization I am founding to be called The Jewish Values Network. But it is for the mainstream Jewish community to pick up this challenge and finally bring Judaism to the American Jewish and non-Jewish masses.

The Iran War Is on The Front Burner

The Iran War Is on The Front Burner
The war that Dick Cheney has been planning against Iran, has moved from the back burner to the front, and those who say they do not see this are either blind or complicit. Military deployments are in place, as laid out in detail in a Sept. 16 feature by Michel Khossudovsky in Global Research, while the statements of intent to wage war, issued by President Bush and Vice President Cheney, have been hyped in British and American news outlets.

Rabbi David Rosen: Jewish experience under Islam was better than under Christianity

Australia/Israel Review - Looking through Rosen-Coloured Glasses
Arguing that religion was a way of overcoming political divisions, Rabbi Rosen said that historically, “Muslims never demonised Jews the way Christians did. The Jewish experience under Islam was better than under Christianity... The relationship at present is to a certain extent a victim of political circumstances.”

Rabbi Rosen further added that “no religion is an island,” which certainly rings true of Israel both demographically and geographically. This is probably the reason why “there is a remarkable amount of interfaith activity in the Holy Land,” as he explained.

Japan to turn to elder Fukuda as next prime minister - Israel News, Ynetnews
Yasuo Fukuda, a quiet compromiser who has promised to bring stability and moderation to Japan's tumultuous political scene, was elected prime minister by the country's lower house of parliament Tuesday.

The vote guaranteed Fukuda's installment as Japan's next leader. The upper house, dominated by the opposition, also was to vote later in the day, but the lower house vote will hold sway under legislature rules. Fukuda, 71, the first son of a prime minister to also serve in the post, has pledged to keep Japan as a strong US ally in the fight against terrorism, improve relations with Asia, and address growing inequalities in the world's second-largest economy.

Christians Worried over Rabbis' Boycott of Sukkot Event - News Briefs - Arutz Sheva
Evangelical Christians who traditionally have supported an Israeli presence in Judea and Samaria are worried over recent rabbinic calls to boycott the major Christian even in Jerusalem during the Sukkot holiday. More than 6,000 Christians from almost 100 countries are expected to visit, following an Old Testament prophecy that all nations will make a pilgrimage to the holy city in the Messianic era.

The rabbis have charged that many of the Christian groups are missionaries who use the holiday to try to convert Jews. However, National Union Knesset Member Benny Elon said that the annual event has taken place in Jerusalem for 27 years with the understanding that missionary work, which is illegal, will not be carried out.

Prepare for State of Emergency

Pakar
Dangers and emergencies are liable to strike us with no prior warning. Human response at such times is automatic, almost instinctive, and is affected to a great extent by thinking, knowledge and prior experience. There is no point in trying to look for new answers to a concrete danger while it’s threatening you. It is well-known that people who have planned on how to cope with emergencies and know what to do, have been able to act correctly, thereby saving themselves, their family members, and those in their surroundings. Emergencies can be large-scale, threatening many people who are liable to be hurt. By their nature, these are rare. However, there are more common emergencies on a smaller scale, though sometimes grave in their effect on both body and soul: traffic accidents, an electrical short that sparks a fire, a small-scale hazardous materials incident, work accidents, and more.
Mass emergencies put a strain on emergency response personnel, so that these may find it difficult to get to and treat every injured person quickly. People might find that they have to cope on their own and deal with their problems by themselves, sometimes for a considerable period of time.
Even in a smaller-scale emergency, due to the circumstances of the event, those involved may find themselves alone in their distress and having to cope with their problems on their own, at least for a short period of time. In such cases, too, it is important that the individual know how to save him/herself and the people around him/her, and, in particular, be able to carry out those functions that must be done immediately. Not doing those actions right away might cause irreversible damages consistent with the circumstances of the particular event.
It is clear, therefore, that the time to learn, train and prepare is during a period of peace and calm. The assumption that people in a crisis can follow directions they have not prepared for is very much mistaken. This is why it is necessary to set an organized and consistent process of prior planning and preparation into place.
