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)

The IAPP Unveils Winners of the 2007 HP-IAPP Privacy Innovation Awards - Bandit - DigitalMe

The IAPP Unveils Winners of the 2007 HP-IAPP Privacy Innovation Awards - Press Release
This year, the HP-IAPP Privacy Innovation Technology Award was the most popular category for nominations, with many technology vendors competing for recognition of their innovative product or service. This year's winner is the Bandit® project, an open source identity project sponsored by global infrastructure software company Novell for its DigitalMe® technology, which helps users manage digital identity cards used in Web transactions.

"DigitalMe is a great example of innovative technology," remarked one Innovation Award judge. "It helps manage credentials and other personal information during interactions with Web sites, and could be used in Web 2.0 environments. This entry is truly thoughtful and innovative."

Based on working code from the Bandit project and interoperable with components from the Eclipse Higgins Project, DigitalMe is functionally equivalent to Microsoft Windows CardSpace. However, it expands user-centric technology beyond Windows to also serve Linux and Macintosh users.

DigitalMe allows for a user-centric identity model that empowers users, not Web sites, to control how sensitive identity information is presented. Users are able to manage multiple digital identity cards to control identity data, including name, address, email and credit card information. Users may obtain the cards through third-party companies or they may create the cards themselves. When a user visits an information card-compatible Web site, the site presents a menu of digital cards to assist in the transaction. The user then selects the appropriate card and the credentials are then sent to third-party site for authorization, which is then sent securely back to the user's system to complete the transaction.

"This award further validates the Bandit project's commitment to increasing the adoption of a user-centric approach to identity management," said Dale Olds, Novell distinguished engineer and Bandit project leader. "The DigitalMe information card selector helps users to protect their privacy by controlling the flow of identity information."

Al Jazeera English - News - Us Imposes New Sanctions On Iran
Ali Reza Ronaghi, Al Jazeera's correspondent in Tehran, said the sanctions are likely to make life more difficult for Iranians.

He said: "These banks that are being designated are major banks that pay the monthly wages of Iranian workers, Iranian government people, and its not easy for Iranians to do any business with any foreign country from now on.

The Revolutionary Guards, formed to safeguard Iran's 1979 Islamic revolution, has pushed well beyond its military roots, and now runs car factories, construction firms and operates newspapers and oilfields.

Ronaghi said: "They are making pipelines, dams, roads and tunnels - wherever they are need.

"They have many financial partners in foreign countries and if they are deprived from doing business with them, it's going to be a lot of problem for the Iranian government to continue construction of the country."

Washington is set to unveil a new package of extra-tough sanctions for Iran Thursday

DEBKAfile - DEBKAfile Reports: Washington is set to unveil a new package of extra-tough sanctions for Iran Thursday
It will be announced jointly by secretary of state Condoleezza Rice and treasury secretary Henry Paulson and include branding Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps proliferators of weapons of mass destruction and the al Qods Brigade sponsor of terrorists.
These steps are unprecedented. DEBKAfile’s Iranian sources recall that the Islamic regime announced in advance that approval of these measures would be deemed tantamount to an American declaration of war on Iran and call forth retaliation. Tehran would target US interests in the Persian Gulf, Iraq and Afghanistan or Israel by means of Special Groups, i.e. Iran’s foreign intelligence networks, Hizballah or Hamas.
DEBKAfile’s sources reveal that these reprisals may be delayed some days because of a profound power struggle taking place in Iran’s leadership. However, since the supreme ruler, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is directly affected as commander-in-chief of Iran’s armed forces, including the IRGC and its al Qods Brigade, Tehran cannot afford to let Washington’s accusations go unanswered.
The new sanctions package includes US financial penalties for any world firms trading with the Revolutionary Guards. They would apply to more than 1,000 companies in Europe, the Middle East, the Persian Gulf and Asia. Our Iranian sources note that since IRGC-owned companies control more than 35 percent of Iran’s economic activities, the new sanctions will have a crippling effect on its national economy. This is already hard hit by Washington’s systematic blockage of Iran’s dealings with international banks, which has left Tehran seriously short of cash flow, foreign currency and basic commodities.

The Jerusalem Baptist Church had been rebuilt after being burned down 25 years ago by ultra-Orthodox Jewish extremists.

Christians who use it today include foreign workers, Sudanese refugees and two congregations of Jews for Jesus, who believe that Jesus Christ was the Jewish Messiah.

Messianic Jews are unpopular in Israel, and some extremist Jews who fear missionary activity believe Christians should not have an official presence in Jerusalem.

Rabbi David Rosen, president of the International Jewish Committee, addressed the difficulties in extending affection when groups oppose one another. Much of his discussion centered around his time in South Africa and Jerusalam.

“Everyone in these conflicts feels that they are vulnerable and they are the ones being victimized,” he said. “No one sees themselves as powerful.”

“Everybody is waiting for somebody else to make the move,” he added, “because everybody thinks that it’s not their responsibility. Therefore if we are to overcome this vicious cycle, we have to be able to move beyond our own preoccupations. We have to be able to move beyond our own pain.”

Blogger's note: Rabbi, why don't you just go ahead and offer the Seven Laws of Noah to the world. Why are you waiting?

“As much as you love to God, you must love to fellow human being,” he said, adding that even if individuals have “no need to be religious minded, [there] is no point to neglect inner values and compassion.”

Later, in response to a previously submitted question about reconciling his Buddhist teachings with Christianity, he described the similarities between many of the world’s religions and his affinity for other religious practices.

“I’m Buddhist. I may argue with Jesus Christ, but in practice I fully agree with his [teaching],” he said.

Blogger's note: If one argues that Jesus Christ is not of the Trinity, then one cannot say that one fully agrees with Christ's teachings.

DEBKAfile’s US military sources disclosed previously that if, as widely reported, Syria is in the process of building a small reactor capable of producing plutonium on the North Korean model, Iran must certainly have acquired one of these reactors before Syria, and would then be in a more advanced stage of plutonium production at a secret underground location.

Ancestry.com already has a number of tools to help its members research and record their ancestry, but offering DNA heritage testing is new. Once the swab is decoded it reveals markers on the DNA. The markers, in combination with a variety of statistics and probabilities, can tell you where your ancestors originated from, their path of migration, and where they have scattered throughout time.

We're talking about much more than knowing where your great-grandparents come from. We're talking about discovering your distant past, like whether you're descended from a long line of Jewish Cohenin . . .

Not only can A Common Word Between Us give them a starting point for cooperation and worldwide co-ordination, but it does so on the most solid theological ground possible: the teachings of the Qu’ran and the Prophet r, and the commandments described by Jesus Christ u in the Bible. Thus despite their differences, Islam and Christianity not only share the same Divine Origin and the same Abrahamic heritage, but the same two greatest commandments.

While acknowledging that we and other Jewish scholars might already frame the words of Dabru Emet somewhat differently, I am pleased to note deep resonances between Dabru Emet and A Common Word. I believe A Common Word represents a comparable opening to theological dialogue. Here is a sampling of ways:

Love of God: For the authors of Dabru Emet, the first principle of Torah is that God is One. As noted in A Common Word, “The Shema in the Book of Deuteronomy (6:4-5) is a centrepiece of the Old Testament and of Jewish liturgy, Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one! You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength.

Love of Neighbour: For the authors of Dabru Emet, the purpose of Torah is to instruct us in God’s ways and to call us to follow those ways. Primary among these ways is love of neighbour (as in Lev. 19:18).

The Call to a Common Word: For the authors of Dabru Emet, God’s ways are disclosed to us through the study of God’s word. The primary practice of study is chevruta, studying texts and commentaries of Torah in the company of fellow-students, so that dialogue and love of fellow are primary means of instruction in God’s ways. Dabru Emet extends this study, as well, to circles of Jewish and Christian study. Many signatories to Dabru Emet also support or contribute to The Society for Scriptural Reasoning, which extends such study to circles of Muslims, Christians, and Jews (see http://etext.lib.virginia.edu/journals/jsrforum/).

Supplemental Wisdoms. A Common Word notes additional wisdoms that underlie Muslim dedication to these loves of God and neighbour. These wisdoms resonate deeply, as well, in traditional Judaism and are cherished by the authors of Dabru Emet:
The Heart: for Jewish scholars, lev (“heart”) is indeed the seat of mind-and-sentiment-and-will, the “spiritual heart” to which love of God is commanded and in which knowledge of God is nurtured. Thus, “love YHVH your God with all your heart” (Deut. 6).

Fear of God is the Beginning of Wisdom: In the words of the rabbis’ traditional morning liturgy, reshit chokhmah yirat YHVH, “fear of God is the beginning of wisdom (and all who fulfil His commandments gain good understanding).”

A Goodly Example: For traditional Jewish scholars, to cling to God (to “set God before me always,” shiviti YHVH l’ negdi tamid) is to imitate the ways of the saints before us, the prophets, patriarchs, sages, the tsadikkim v’chasidim, “the righteous and holy ones.”

In the Best Stature: For these scholars, humanity is created in the image and likeness of God. All humans are therefore made of one form: the image of God. As different as we may live and as burdened as we may be by suffering and sin, our true devotion and obligation remains one and single: to fulfill our lives in God’s image.
Let us be humbled by our tasks of serving God and the good of humanity and, in that humility, find one another indeed.

Princeton, Harvard, Yale: most significant document on interfaith relations in the past 50 years

The Harvard Crimson :: News :: Div School Dean Signs Letter from Christians
In reply to an unprecedented statement from Muslim clerics and scholars about the common ground between Christianity and Islam, Christian intellectuals, including nine Harvard professors, issued a letter this month responding to what many of them saw as a deeply significant gesture from the Muslim community.

With 138 Muslim signatories, the September letter, “A Common Word Between Us and You,” outlines the shared belief of the love of God and the neighbor between the two faiths, and discusses the need for peace between the two religions.

It draws comparisons between the Koran and the New Testament, emphasizing that common commandments supersede interfaith conflict. The letter was signed by leaders from all denominations of Islam.

Miroslav Volf, director of the Yale Center for Faith and Culture and the principal drafter of the Christian response, said the letter is the most significant document on interfaith relations in the past 50 years.

The letter from Christian scholars, “Loving God and Neighbor Together,” began circulating among professors at Yale and, as of this weekend, included endorsements from the leaders of the divinity schools at Princeton and Harvard. Dean of the Divinity School William A. Graham signed onto the response, but said that Yale’s statement was “symbolic more than anything.”

Student response has been overwhelmingly positive, according to President of the Harvard Islamic Society Shaheer A. Rizvi ’08 and Chair of the Harvard College Interfaith Council Zeba A. Syed ’09.

“The fact that both sides are willing to extend their hands is very promising for future relations between adherents of the two traditions,” Syed said. “Graham, by signing this document, has really placed the Harvard community in a new light, as his act symbolizes that Harvard encourages understanding and cooperation between different faith traditions.”

According to Harold W. Attridge, dean of the Yale Divinity School, there have been conversations about a possible conference of religious leaders and educators to follow up on the Muslim statement and the response. At Harvard, Stillman Professor of Roman Catholic Theological Studies Francis S. Fiorenza—who signed the statement—said that there has been a discussion about the need to make the offerings in Islamic studies stronger.

Although the response statement does recognize the common ground with Judaism as an Abrahamic faith, neither document mentions other faiths such as Buddhism or Hinduism. As of last night, only one professor of Jewish studies had written on this dialogue’s impact to Judaism, according to The Web site for “A Common Word.”

“There is a place for broader interfaith dialogue, but there is also a place for bilateral conciliation,” Volf said.

Rachel is the one most associated in Kabbalah with the building of Jewish nature

Jewish Mother's Day - Time in Thought
The figure of our matriarch Rachel is the one most associated in Kabbalah with the building of Jewish nature, the inbred character of an individual who walks willingly and naturally in the path of G‑d. Jewish nature and character, best exemplified by the patriarchs and matriarchs, calls upon an individual to perform G‑d's will out of his or her own accord, a state described by the sages as "acting without dictation [from Above]." Just as our matriarch Eve, "the mother of all life," is the mother of human nature, so our matriarch Rachel is the mother of our unique Jewish nature.

A society is wise to adopt the Seven Noahide Laws (seven universal laws)

Morality Without G‑d - Issues
Maimonides writes (Laws of Kings 9:11):

"One who accepts the Seven Noahide Laws and is meticulous in their observance is from the righteous of the nations of the world and has a share in the World-to-Come -- provided that he does so because G‑d commanded so in the Torah. . . If, however, he observes them because his mind so dictates, he is not from the righteous of the nations nor is he from their wise ones [alternative version: rather he is from their wise ones]."

A society is wise to adopt the Seven Noahide Laws (seven universal laws, which include prohibitions against murder, theft, etc.) as part of their legal system. They are prudent laws that form the basis of a moral legal code. These laws are wise whether or not they are observed with the proper intentions.

Ultimately, however, it is not wise to follow these moral principles independent of their Giver. Such a moral system may work for most of the people most of the time, but inevitably it will fail -- either society-wide, or in the individual lives of citizens in certain situations. Absolute morality can only be a product of the unchanging realization that there is an absolute Divine "eye that sees, ear that hears, and all your actions are chronicled in a ledger."

Perhaps our Founding Fathers recognized this truth when they opened the Declaration of Independence with the words: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights." A return to this idea would go a long way towards improving our nation's moral fabric.

First Priestly Blessing on Temple Mount Since 70 AD

Priestly Blessing on Temple Mount - Jewish World - Israel News - Arutz Sheva
A historic first: Last week, during a special visit to the Temple Mount, the Priestly Blessing (Numbers 6:24-26) was recited there, for arguably the first time since the 1st-century destruction.

The special visit was held to commemorate the 842nd anniversary of Maimonides's famous visit to the Temple Mount, Judaism's holiest site. A group of some 25 Jews, organized by the Temple Institute in Jerusalem, marked the special day with a commemorative visit. Giving extra-special meaning to the occasion was a spontaneous Priestly Blessing delivered to the group by Yehuda Katz, the lead singer of the Reva L'Sheva band, and Eliezer Breuer, originally of the former Soviet Union and now from Kiryat Arba.

Rabbi Chaim Richman [of the Sanhedrin], one of the organizers of the trip, said, "This was probably the first time since the destruction of the Temple [1,928 years ago] that the Priestly Blessing was delivered on our holiest site. At times like these, when there is talk of giving away our precious places, and when despair is sometimes in the air, events of this nature serve to remind us that G-d has not forgotten about us, and that He still has big plans for both us and the Holy Temple - and that the Temple will yet become the focal point of the world once again."

Maimonides, also known as the Rambam, made his historic visit to the Temple Mount on the sixth day of the month of MarCheshvan in the year 1166 (4926 in the Jewish calendar). Unanimously considered one of Judaism's greatest figures, the Rambam wrote that he put himself in danger to make a trip to Jerusalem, where he entered "the Large and Holy House [the Temple Mount] and prayed." Three days later, he also visited the Machpelah Cave in Hevron, and vowed to commemorate the anniversaries of those days as his personal festivals for years to come.

Though the Chief Rabbinate disagrees, the Yesha Rabbis Council has ruled that one who ascends and visits the Temple Mount while adhering to three conditions - prior immersion in a mikveh; keeping the laws of Awe of the Temple (no leather shoes, proper respect, etc.); and knowledge of the precise permitted areas - is fulfilling a "great mitzvah [Torah commandment]."
