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)

Peres's 30.4.08 Address at the Opening Ceremony of Holocaust Heroes' and Martyrs' Remembrance Day 2008, at Yad Vashem

IMRA - Wednesday, April 30, 2008 President Shimon Peres's 30.4.08 Address at the Opening Ceremony of Holocaust Heroes' and Martyrs' Remembrance Day 2008, at Yad Vashem
We established an army that knows how to win, and is capable of defending a
peace-seeking nation. We proved that our spirit was not broken. The
catastrophe of the Holocaust did not destroy our ability to establish a just
way of life. The Holocaust demanded a supreme effort on our part. Even
after our blood had been spilled, we succeeded in becoming first in the
world - in agriculture, medicine, and self-defense.

We will not forget, we will not cover up, and we will not stop asking
ourselves anew each morning, what we can do so that what happened will never
happen again. And we will remember - history has taught us to be vigilant.
We must cultivate both our spiritual and physical power. We have to
strengthen our position, with the power of justice and justifiable power. We
need to seek out friends in this world, and to demand that they keep their
eyes open and recognize imminent danger, rather than offer comfort after the
fact.

What is expected of us, we will bear on our shoulders. What is expected of
the world should be acted upon without delay. If the countries of the world
had not delayed, and would have identified the Nazi threat in time, they
could have prevented Hitler from murdering tens of millions of people. They
could have prevented war from breaking out.

We stand here today with tears in our eyes, and yet we will not immerse
ourselves in our tears. Only a strong country is entitled to mourn its
children. Only a nation that believes in itself can commemorate them in a
fitting manner.
Only a state with deterrence power, with an army worthy of its reputation,
bent on peace, can ensure that the memory of those who perished will never
be obliterated.

We shall pray together. We will say Kaddish in their memory. And we will
sound the notes of "Hatikvah" for the generations to come.
