Why all the fuss about the Bavarian Pope stating his beliefs? At least he is telling the plain truth about official Roman Catholic teaching -- even if he's in grave error and spewing religious lies, according to the Bible. Those drunk on the ecumenical spirits, who are in a state of shock or confusion, staggering over his statements, expose they've either been misled by the Vatican or in a stupored state of denial, having fooled themselves that reconciliation between the Catholic Mother and Protestant Daughters was a two-way street rather than a one way street back to Rome and its dead end.
The Roman Catholic Church is not the Church Jesus Christ founded on the holy day of Shavuot/Pentecost. The Roman Catholic Church is the Babylonian Mystery Religion in Christian drag, and they do well to call themselves Catholic because they're not Christians! That's right - Catholics are not Christians. To state anything less is to endanger folks who fail to recognize the seriousness of religious sins or discern doctrines of demons.
The Roman Catholic Church is the apostate organization of those who fell away from the original Sabbath-keeping Church of God. The RCC represents those who became prey to wolves in sheep's clothing and were misled from the Faith once delivered to Jews in Jerusalem, even though they were warned by Peter, John, Jude, Polycarp, Polycrates and other witnesses. Rome is foreign to Jerusalem and anathema to Christ!
Throughout history, the true Church of God has always been the "little flock," the chosen few -- never the majority. The legitimate Church of God's succession is revealed by faithfulness to biblical doctrines (easily proven by noble "Bereans") -- not by a pompous parade of pagan men who blindly follow idolatrous traditions and engage in identity theft, in a massive fraud, a counterfeit Christianity that pollutes the holy name of Jesus Christ and misrepresents God (Rev. 12:9).
It appears the German-Jesuit pope is determined to discipline, and in the unholy spirit of the Inquisition and Crusades is clearly gearing up for battle and drawing lines in the sand and is prepared to crack the whip -- whether it's his tongue (like his stinging rebuke of the EU as "apostate" over their refusal to acknowledge Catholicism's contributions to Europe in their Constitution) or Caesar's sword.
Watch for the pope to promote a man after his own heart to govern Europe and wield whatever force is necessary to stabilize the world -- even if it means going ballistic.
Three blind mice.
IF Bush were serious against terrorism he wouldn’t aid and abet those who enforce Judenrein policies and expel Jews rather than Nazi Muslims.

PETITION FOR PUBLIC RELEASE OF BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA'S BIRTH CERTIFICATE
To: Electoral College, Congress of the United States, Federal Elections Commission, U.S. Supreme Court, President of the United States, other controlling legal authorities
Whereas, by requirement of the United States Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, no one can be sworn into office as president of the United States without being a natural born citizen;
Whereas, there is sufficient controversy within the citizenry of the United States as to whether presidential election winner Barack Obama was actually born in Hawaii as he claims;
Whereas, Barack Obama has refused repeated calls to release publicly his entire Hawaiian birth certificate, which would include the actual hospital that performed the delivery;
Whereas, lawsuits filed in several states seeking only proof of the basic minimal standard of eligibility have been rebuffed;
Whereas, Hawaii at the time of Obama's birth allowed births that took place in foreign countries to be registered in Hawaii;
Whereas, concerns that our government is not taking this constitutional question seriously will result in diminished confidence in our system of free and fair elections;
SIGN THE PETITION
We, the undersigned, assert our rights as citizens of the United States in demanding that the constitutional eligibility requirement be taken seriously and that any and all controlling legal authorities in this matter examine the complete birth certificate of Barack Obama, including the actual city and hospital of birth, and make that document available to the American people for inspection.
After days of prayer and fear among Jews and good people everywhere, the horrible reality of the Islamic terrorist rampage in Mumbai was revealed in all its obscene and mindless savagery when members of Zaka entered the Chabad compound.
As an eyewitness told YNET, the sight was unbearable even to the practiced eyes of those whose job it is to deal with the aftermath of murderous terror attacks:
"The place was totally destroyed. Live grenades were all over the floor. Torah scrolls and holy books were scattered on the floor, covered with blood."
The bodies of the Chabad rabbi and the kashrut supervisor were found in one room, along with two other men whose hands had been tied with telephone wire. The body of the Rabbi's young wife Rivkie was found covered in a tallit. It is believed she was killed before her young husband's eyes and he wrapped her in his tallit.
A grandmother from Israel, and a Jewish woman tourist from Mexico were also identified. For photos you will not see in the New York Times of the blood-soaked floor of the house of prayer and hospitality, courtesy of the "religion of peace" whose riots kill hundreds when a Koran is desecrated, please go to: http://www.ynet.co.il/articles/0,7340,L-3630586,00.html
Police in Mumbai report that they found enough ammunition to blow up both hotels and to kill thousands, which according to a terrorist captured alive, was the intention. This carefully planned attack, which had the Chabad House at its center, was orchestrated from Pakistan. Vilasrao Deshmukh, the Chief Minister of Maharashtra state, of which Bombay is the capital, was quoted yesterday as saying there were two "British-born Pakistanis" among the terrorists, reports he later denied. A British Pakistani was involved in a terror attack in Israel at Mike's Place not long ago.
The Mail Online reports "a banned Islamic terrorist group funded with cash raised in British mosques is believed to be behind the Mumbai attacks." The Mail reports: "The only terrorist captured alive after the Mumbai massacre has given police the first full account of the extraordinary events that led to it - revealing he was ordered to 'kill until the last breath'.
Azam Amir Kasab, 21, from Pakistan, said the attacks were meticulously planned six months ago and were intended to kill 5,000 people. He revealed that the ten terrorists, who were highly trained in marine assault and crept into the city by boat, had planned to blow up the Taj Mahal Palace hotel after first executing British and American tourists and then taking hostages.
"These descriptions brought back flashbacks to me of the Park Hotel which was rocked by a murderous explosion by Hamas terrorists right before the Seder began. Perhaps it is impossible for the average human being to understand the depth of evil represented by Muslim extremists and their supporters if you didn't witness such a thing. I deal with this in my book, The Covenant. But I feel that I am whistling in the wind. People who have not seen this with their own eyes just refuse to understand that these are not people with grievances, people who can be reasoned with. These people are Nazis. Only if you think you can speak to a Nazi and convince him to not wish to kill Jews, can such a stand make sense.
No one should negotiate with any person, government official, religious leader, or member of any group that does not condemn and despise and excoriate these terrorists. No respect should be given to any religion, or member of that religion, or religious leader who does not despise and condemn these acts. When one views the bloody floor of Chabad House, one sees the bloodied face of civilization. Those who are not prepared to exterminate this evil, and those who are involved in it, are part of it.
Eyewitness Jonathan Ehrlich, a businessman who narrowly escaped death in Mumbai, sent out an e-mail of his experiences. In conclusion, he writes this: The people who did this have no souls. They have no hearts. They are simplythe living manifestation of evil and they only know killing and murder. We - all of us - need to understand that. Their target tonight was first and foremost Americans. Why? Because they fear everything that America stands for. They fear hope and change and freedom and peace. Let's make no mistake; they would have shot me and my children point blank tonight without a moment's hesitation. Most of us sorta know that but sometimes we equivocate. We can't equivocate. Not ever.

If your book [Beyond Babylon] was inspired by Our Heavenly Father, no one should condemn it. Of course that could be the reason, because most people don't want to accept the truth. Just stay the course, if it's right it will finally be exposed.
I received this private message at the Scam.com forum:
I was curious. I have read some of your entries. Do you have any formal training in theology or training from a seminary or yeshiva?
Thankfully not (for the most part), but hopefully folks will recognize that I've spent plenty of prayerful time in the Word, even as the religious authorities noted Peter and John - "uneducated and untrained men" (no formal training) - had spent time with Yeshua.
13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus.
are you self taught? do you have a mentor?
Like the noble Bereans, I search the Scriptures to see what is so and mainly did so with Herbert W. Armstrong's biblical teachings.
are you an established minister or ordained elder in any denomination? do you operate a church or assembly in the Toledo,OH area?
No and God knows I have no desire to be one. I do what I feel I've been called to do: serve as an e-vangelist throughout the internet world.

I found the special report on the PCG, all things considered, unusually fair and balanced and commend Nick Winkler and Fox News for it, since the Sabbath-keeping Church of God members have always been highly skeptical of such reporters and cynical about such programs.
You can watch the Fox News' videos for yourself and see what you think:
Philadelphia Church of God: Part One
Philadelphia Church of God: Part Two
I'm pleased Fox News made mention of my book and name and showed them on my Philadelphia Church of God blog, having interviewed me as a former PCG member who was disfellowshipped for writing Beyond Babylon and who strongly disagrees with how Pastor General Gerald Flurry is squandering tithe money in Edmond, Oklahoma instead of going all out to share the plain truth of the Bible, our warning message, with the world in a powerful way that such money makes possible.
Fox 25, Oklahoma City, Special Report:
Philadelphia Church of God: Part One
David Ben-Ariel: I was basically put out..
Reporter Nick Winkler: Former PCG member David Ben-Ariel says he was kicked out of the Church for writing a book [Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall] without the Church's approval and says all that money [15 million Art Center on their Edmond, Oklahoma site] could be better spent spreading God's Word differently...
David Ben-Ariel: Hopefully, they'll stop spending their money in Edmond, Oklahoma and use it to become a household word with our teachings and let that become known.
Philadelphia Church of God: Part Two
Nick Winkler: Before Jesus Christ returns...
David Ben-Ariel: Violence, WWIII...yes, there will be lots of violence.
Nick Winkler: Former PCG member David Ben-Ariel says he was kicked out of the Church but still defends its tithing practices...
David Ben-Ariel: Again, it's voluntary but it's understood if you're a Church of God member you will tithe and you'll want to.
PCG: Carrying on "Business as Usual"
If you truly saw what is coming on this Earth, and had a vision of tomorrow, you would know that the Gathering Storm darkens as you sip champagne and boast that you're rich and in need of nothing, woefully ignorant that the Two Witnesses will soon be wearing sackcloth and fasting, not wining and dining at black tie dinners!
Here's an excerpt from Philadelphia Church of God Leads Laodicean Era (Conclusion) that reveals the PCG ministers' initial response to Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall, and how Gerald Flurry's fomer right-hand man, PCG minister Dennis Leap, shamefully insisted on playing politics:
What's BEWILDERING to me is the different responses I've received from several of God's ministers who have read Beyond Babylon -- towards it and me -- before and after Dennis Leap's PARTIAL review! (Malachi 2:9).
When I faithfully sent a computer disk with my book on it to minister Wayne Turgeon, he graciously read all of it and responded:
"Oh, how I admire those with both the ability to write as well as the courage to put down their ideas on paper! I felt that you have a very gripping style of writing that uses twists and slants of words or phrases to make your point. I looked up every scripture you referenced and it became clear that you have really spent a lot of time in your Bible. Being Jewish, I think, gives you an added perspective that I could never have... Much of what you have written is not 'new revelation' as I'm sure that you'd readily agree... It's certainly not my place to determine if what you believe God has shown you is true or not, but would you mind presenting Mr. Flurry with an abbreviated version of what you feel is inspired... as I highly doubt that he would have time to read your whole book."
What does he mean it's not his place to determine if what I wrote is true or not? God holds every INDIVIDUAL responsible to prayerfully determine whether something is of God or not! How did we prove Malachi's Message was biblical? Did we rely solely on our minister's evaluation? Worldwide all over again?
Mind you, unlike Mr. Armstrong's lengthy manuscript of close to 300 typed pages, Beyond Babylon is only 1/2 that size, literally! I suggested Gerald Flurry read the first and last chapters. Mr. Turgeon told me Flurry returned it to him, saying something like, "He's always sending us stuff."
I have written short letters to the point, like correcting him about Mount Hermon and Mount Carmel after he continued to confuse the two in several articles. I'm familiar with them because I've been blessed to have lived next to both of them. Mr. Turgeon also wrote that I was a little "too radical" for Mr. Flurry and wondered what I'd said or done that had given him that impression. I explained it's because I took exception to his careless condemnation of those religious Jews who want the Temple built as "extremists." I wrote that it's extremist for secular, humanist Jews to oppose converting the Promised Land into a Holy Land!
Flurry was surprised and had also written against the STRONG EMOTIONS some feel over Jerusalem and Israel. How could God use someone so distant over there?! Some of us have a GOD-GIVEN LOVE for Jerusalem and a genuine passion for Judah that's most personal; we're not a stranger in OUR Homeland! (Psalms 102:14; Ps. 137; Isaiah 62). That's not "radical," it's BIBLICAL!
Minister Carl Craven also read Beyond Babylon and acknowledged it as biblical. He said he hadn't looked up every Scripture, but was sure if he had they'd also be used correctly. I commented that I know it's biblical, but that I was just waiting for headquarters to prove that to themselves as well. He expressed an understanding of how it's difficult to be patient meanwhile.
When Dennis Leap did call, it was to instruct me to STAY HOME FROM SABBATH SERVICES while he looked at the book! I didn't recall such an unusual request being made of Mr. Armstrong, and recognized it went against "innocent until proven guilty," but obliged with the hope of returning soon (John 7:51).
After some time, I called Mr. Leap. He said he'd read PARTS of the book, and that it wasn't important whether Mr. Flurry had read it or not (even though I'd been led to believe he'd pass it on to him). He stated, "You use some pretty strong language in there," to which I replied, "But it's biblical, isn't it?" "Well, yes, but...". He also noted, like Mr. Turgeon, that most of it is what we already teach. I agreed and said that that should serve as a GOOD SIGN, but that the NEW REVELATION about the Two Witnesses and Europe is firmly built upon that foundation.
Dennis Leap found it difficult to accept that a LAY MEMBER would write such a book. He admitted Flurry had received bits of revelation from lay members, but NEVER a whole book! I didn't want to be judged by precedent, but by whether or not what I'd written is biblical. If I was in error, then it was his duty to clearly show me where FROM THE BIBLE, like Aquilla and Priscilla helped improve Apollos' understanding (Acts 18:26).
I was informed if I wanted to return to services, I would have to forget Beyond Babylon, act like a "regular lay member," and basically deny that it was from God! Like Mr. Armstrong, I had PROVEN what I'd written to be TRUE. Actually, Leap didn't say that it wasn't or attempt to refute it!
I told Mr. Leap I didn't want to play politics. By his insistence that I must be a MINISTER to write such a book, he was still looking to MEN OF STATURE! And since I'm not one, he was demanding that I "PROPHESY NOT!" (Amos 2:12).
He got very angry when I mentioned this and said he was severing all ties between the PCG and myself, and that I wasn't to claim any association with the PCG. He said I was now free to go and do whatever I felt God would have me to do with BB and not worry whether or not he or Mr. Flurry had read it! When I expressed the hope of reconciliation, he retorted we could when I repented. Of what? OBEYING GOD RATHER THAN MAN? Is that "rebellion?"
Mr. Armstrong WASN'T an ordained minister either when he wrote what he felt GOD would have him to share! The Identity Doctrine also wasn't so much new truth, as a new way of presenting it. I'm sure glad he didn't let those two points stop him! Aren't you? So I was UNJUSTLY DISFELLOWSHIPPED for believing God used me to write a book, and MARKED for exposing the facts about Mr. Leap's folly!

Tuesday, November 25, 2008
By Lenny Ben-David
A few weeks ago, the Associated Press reported that newly released tapes from US president Lyndon Johnson's White House office showed LBJ's "personal and often emotional connection to Israel." The news agency pointed out that during the Johnson presidency (1963-1969), "the United States became Israel's chief diplomatic ally and primary arms supplier."
But the news report does little to reveal the full historical extent of Johnson's actions on behalf of the Jewish people and the State of Israel. Most students of the Arab-Israeli conflict can identify Johnson as the president during the 1967 war. But few know about LBJ's actions to rescue hundreds of endangered Jews during the Holocaust - actions that could have thrown him out of Congress and into jail. Indeed, the title of "Righteous Gentile" is certainly appropriate in the case of the Texan, whose centennial year is being commemorated this year.
Appropriately enough, the annual Jerusalem Conference announced this week that it will honor Johnson in February 2009.
Historians have revealed that Johnson, while serving as a young congressman in 1938 and 1939, arranged for visas to be supplied to Jews in Warsaw, and oversaw the apparently illegal immigration of hundreds of Jews through the port of Galveston, Texas.
A key resource for uncovering LBJ's pro-Jewish activity is the unpublished 1989 doctoral thesis by University of Texas student Louis Gomolak, "Prologue: LBJ's Foreign Affairs Background, 1908-1948." Johnson's activities were confirmed by other historians in interviews with his wife, family members and political associates.
Research into Johnson's personal history indicates that he inherited his concern for the Jewish people from his family. His aunt Jessie Johnson Hatcher, a major influence on LBJ, was a member of the Zionist Organization of America. According to Gomolak, Aunt Jessie had nurtured LBJ's commitment to befriending Jews for 50 years. As a young boy, Lyndon watched his politically active grandfather "Big Sam" and father "Little Sam" seek clemency for Leo Frank, the Jewish victim of a blood libel in Atlanta. Frank was lynched by a mob in 1915, and the Ku Klux Klan in Texas threatened to kill the Johnsons. The Johnsons later told friends that Lyndon's family hid in their cellar while his father and uncles stood guard with shotguns on their porch in case of KKK attacks. Johnson's speechwriter later stated, "Johnson often cited Leo Frank's lynching as the source of his opposition to both anti-Semitism and isolationism."
Already in 1934 - four years before Chamberlain's Munich sellout to Hitler - Johnson was keenly alert to the dangers of Nazism and presented a book of essays, Nazism: An Assault on Civilization, to the 21-year-old woman he was courting, Claudia Taylor - later known as "Lady Bird" Johnson. It was an incredible engagement present.
FIVE DAYS after taking office in 1937, LBJ broke with the "Dixiecrats" and supported an immigration bill that would naturalize illegal aliens, mostly Jews from Lithuania and Poland. In 1938, Johnson was told of a young Austrian Jewish musician who was about to be deported from the United States. With an element of subterfuge, LBJ sent him to the US Consulate in Havana to obtain a residency permit. Erich Leinsdorf, the world famous musician and conductor, credited LBJ for saving his life.
That same year, LBJ warned a Jewish friend, Jim Novy, that European Jews faced annihilation. "Get as many Jewish people as possible out [of Germany and Poland]," were Johnson's instructions. Somehow, Johnson provided him with a pile of signed immigration papers that were used to get 42 Jews out of Warsaw.
But that wasn't enough. According to historian James M. Smallwood, Congressman Johnson used legal and sometimes illegal methods to smuggle "hundreds of Jews into Texas, using Galveston as the entry port. Enough money could buy false passports and fake visas in Cuba, Mexico and other Latin American countries.... Johnson smuggled boatloads and planeloads of Jews into Texas. He hid them in the Texas National Youth Administration... Johnson saved at least four or five hundred Jews, possibly more."
During World War II Johnson joined Novy at a small Austin gathering to sell $65,000 in war bonds. According to Gomolak, Novy and Johnson then raised a very "substantial sum for arms for Jewish underground fighters in Palestine." One source cited by the historian reports that "Novy and Johnson had been secretly shipping heavy crates labeled 'Texas Grapefruit' - but containing arms - to Jewish underground 'freedom fighters' in Palestine."
ON JUNE 4, 1945, Johnson visited Dachau. According to Smallwood, Lady Bird later recalled that when her husband returned home, "he was still shaken, stunned, terrorized and bursting with an overpowering revulsion and incredulous horror at what he had seen."
A decade later while serving in the Senate, Johnson blocked the Eisenhower administration's attempts to apply sanctions against Israel following the 1956 Sinai Campaign. "The indefatigable Johnson had never ceased pressure on the administration," wrote I.L. "Si" Kenen, the head of AIPAC at the time.
As Senate majority leader, Johnson consistently blocked the anti-Israel initiatives of his fellow Democrat, William Fulbright, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Among Johnson's closest advisers during this period were several strong pro-Israel advocates, including Benjamin Cohen (who 30 years earlier was the liaison between Supreme Court justice Louis Brandeis and Chaim Weizmann) and Abe Fortas, the legendary Washington "insider."
Johnson's concern for the Jewish people continued through his presidency. Soon after taking office in the aftermath of John F. Kennedy's assassination in 1963, Johnson told an Israeli diplomat, "You have lost a very great friend, but you have found a better one."Just one month after succeeding Kennedy, LBJ attended the December 1963 dedication of the Agudas Achim Synagogue in Austin. Novy opened the ceremony by saying to Johnson, "We can't thank him enough for all those Jews he got out of Germany during the days of Hitler."
Lady Bird would later describe the day, according to Gomolak: "Person after person plucked at my sleeve and said, 'I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for him. He helped me get out.'" Lady Bird elaborated, "Jews had been woven into the warp and woof of all [Lyndon's] years."
THE PRELUDE to the 1967 war was a terrifying period for Israel, with the US State Department led by the historically unfriendly Dean Rusk urging an evenhanded policy despite Arab threats and acts of aggression. Johnson held no such illusions. After the war he placed the blame firmly on Egypt: "If a single act of folly was more responsible for this explosion than any other, it was the arbitrary and dangerous announced decision [by Egypt] that the Strait of Tiran would be closed [to Israeli ships and Israeli-bound cargo]."
Kennedy was the first president to approve the sale of defensive US weapons to Israel, specifically Hawk anti-aircraft missiles. But Johnson approved tanks and fighter jets, all vital after the 1967 war when France imposed a freeze on sales to Israel. Yehuda Avner recently described on these pages prime minister Levi Eshkol's successful appeal for these weapons on a visit to the LBJ ranch. (Pictured: LBJ receiving Yitzhak Rabin in the Oval Office.)
Israel won the 1967 war, and Johnson worked to make sure it also won the peace. "I sure as hell want to be careful and not run out on little Israel," Johnson said in a March 1968 conversation with his ambassador to the United Nations, Arthur Goldberg, according to White House tapes recently released.Soon after the 1967 war, Soviet premier Aleksei Kosygin asked Johnson at the Glassboro Summit why the US supported Israel when there were 80 million Arabs and only three million Israelis. "Because it is right," responded the straight-shooting Texan.
The crafting of UN Resolution 242 in November 1967 was done under Johnson's scrutiny. The call for "secure and recognized boundaries" was critical. The American and British drafters of the resolution opposed Israel returning all the territories captured in the war. In September 1968, Johnson explained, "We are not the ones to say where other nations should draw lines between them that will assure each the greatest security. It is clear, however, that a return to the situation of 4 June 1967 will not bring peace. There must be secure and there must be recognized borders. Some such lines must be agreed to by the neighbors involved."
Goldberg later noted, "Resolution 242 in no way refers to Jerusalem, and this omission was deliberate." This historic diplomacy was conducted under Johnson's stewardship, as Goldberg related in oral history to the Johnson Library. "I must say for Johnson," Goldberg stated. "He gave me great personal support."Robert David Johnson, a professor of history at Brooklyn College, recently wrote in The New York Sun, "Johnson's policies stemmed more from personal concerns - his friendship with leading Zionists, his belief that America had a moral obligation to bolster Israeli security and his conception of Israel as a frontier land much like his home state of Texas. His personal concerns led him to intervene when he felt that the State or Defense departments had insufficiently appreciated Israel's diplomatic or military needs."
President Johnson firmly pointed American policy in a pro-Israel direction. In a historical context, the American emergency airlift to Israel in 1973, the constant diplomatic support, the economic and military assistance and the strategic bonds between the two countries can all be credited to the seeds planted by LBJ.
It's great to read of cooperation between Joes and Jews, Joseph and Judah, since the United States (Artzot Habrit) - "the lands of the covenant" - is the prophesied biblical inheritance of Menashe ben Yosef.
Interesting (and controversial) to read about the illegal immigration of Jews into Galveston, Texas. I was in a work-study program at Kibbutz Sdot Yam, famous for illegal immigration and mentioned in Leon Uris' book, Exodus.

"For we are members of his Body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined to his wife, and they TWO shall be ONE FLESH. This is a GREAT MYSTERY: but I speak concerning Christ and the Church" (Ephes. 5:30-32).
Overcome in Christ Daily
GOOD NEWS: Yeshua is able to break the bonds of sin and set free those who are slaves, saving us from both sin's eternal death penalty and delivering us from the sin. Some deny this POWER and only want the pardon but the Throne of Grace offers both.
Man Questions Whether We'll Be Angelic Or Divine
Even as we have been fully mortal and human like Adam, we shall be fully divine and holy Spirit like Christ the Second Adam, being born again into the literal Kingdom-Family of God. How Satan is insanely jealous of this fact!
Born Again and Heaven and Hell
Yeshua said that which is born of the flesh is flesh (like we are now in this life), but that which is born of the Spirit IS SPIRIT. He also said you can't even see or enter into that Kingdom of God unless you're born again...
Sneak Preview of the Kingdom of God
If I may, as God is my Witness and Judge, when I was only 17 years young, God UNEXPECTEDLY gave me a VISION while I was in prayer. I was within that vision as a glorified Spirit-Being, whiter than glistening snow and like a brilliant white cloud with the sun shining on it, appearing smooth, dressed in a white robe - even my hair was that brilliant white - holding a Book in my hands and teaching two flesh and blood mortals who were sitting on the ground, in an outdoor setting like a park or meadow.)
Born Again: The Kingdom of God!
GOD IS REPRODUCING HIMSELF! That's the glorious Good News that Jesus boldly proclaimed! The Gospel of the KINGDOM OF GOD announces the GOD KINGDOM: a Spirit-Born Kingdom of God-Beings! A Royal Family that we can enter (Rev. 3:21). A Divine Family that will administer God's Government throughout the universe and eternity (Isa. 9:7; Dan. 7:18).
A Higher Calling: Quest for the Kingdom of God
Jesus clearly said, "No man can come to Me, except the Father who has sent me draw him..."(John 6:44). Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. The Christian calling includes recognizing Jesus is the only way to the Father, learning all about Him as the Incarnate Word of God and walking in that light as a way of life, following Jesus by the lead of the Holy Spirit, the power and influence of God (Romans 8:14, 1 John 2:6).
Kingdom of God-Beings to Rule Earth from Jerusalem!
Yeshua has gone to Heaven and is preparing for the coming Kingdom of God, making room for us (converted Christians then transformed) in His Administration, preparing our positions and government seats in the Kingdom-Family of God, and will then return and receive us to Himself, sharing His glory and power and honor with us from Jerusalem, the seat of God's government, the Throne of David, the Throne of the LORD.

Thanksgiving: Attitude of Gratitude
This recent exchange with a gentleman at the History Channel forum is just in time for Thanksgiving Day...
The twelve tribes themselves are not European in origin
The Twelve Tribes of Israel - the Anglo-Saxons and white peoples of Northwestern Europe -- are Israelite in origin. We're the so-called "Lost Ten Tribes." We we taken captive by the Assyrians and later, as prophesied, migrated north and west into Europe and King David's dynasty continues in the Sceptered Isle.
Of the 12,000 from each tribe to be taken on judgement day, how many do you think will be of mixed blood?
If they're so mixed the Holy Spirit wouldn't have inspired John to write specifically of the unique tribes of Israel. They're obviously not "mixed" enough to disqualify them from being considered, in God's eyes, this or that specific tribe of Israel. Undoubtedly we have married among ourselves, yet still this or that tribe dominates in our ancestry, having sifted through various countries (we can say we're English, Irish, Dutch) but still ISRAELITE.
When Revelations was written the author probably had no idea that the Jews would have dispersed across the globe as they have or intermarried as they have with other peoples
John was a prophet and the Holy Spirit undoubtedly inspired him to know the other prophecies in the Law and the Prophets that clearly foretold the reach and expansion of all Twelve Tribes to the far ends of the Earth - not just the Jews! The Jews are only a small part of the big family of Jacob-Israel.
It's written in Amos that we (the Northern 10-tribed Kingdom of Israel) would migrate, sift through the nations, and yet not lose our identity (as far as our ethnic make-up is concerned, our basic DNA).
assuming that you are a Gentile
God's mercy extends to all peoples, although His plan calls for the Jew (and Israelites) first and then the Gentiles. God has called our peoples, the Jews and the Joes, Israelites, to ultimately become His Servant Nation to bless all nations.
I am a Joe (descended from Joseph/Anglo-Saxon heritage), as well as a Jew, scions of King David, as our family goes back to the British and Scottish Royal Families. I'm also a descendant of two Mayflower Pilgrims, John and Priscilla Alden, and collateral descendant of three American presidents.
[The Scripture] doesn't apply to America because we were given nothing. We TOOK everything we have from the natives
The United States was given primarily to the descendants of Joseph and the other Northern tribes of Israel, with some Jews living among us (even though God has given them a Jewish Homeland).
Just like ancient Israel had to be willing to fight to secure their inheritance, so did we. Sometimes we were more honorable than others, just like Jacob with Esau, but regardless Manifest Destiny was to be and was fulfilled in us. We didn't take from the natives as it wasn't theirs to begin with -- it belongs to our Great Creator God and to whomsoever He gives it, as is His divine prerogative.
The various natives took from each other and had a violent history towards different tribes and were carried away with their raw paganism. Some were more advanced than others.
10 “So it shall be, when the LORD your God brings you into the land of which He swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give you large and beautiful cities which you did not build, 11 houses full of all good things, which you did not fill, hewn-out wells which you did not dig, vineyards and olive trees which you did not plant—when you have eaten and are full— 12 then beware, lest you forget the LORD...
we built the cities, invented our gadgets and things, built a gargantuan economy, paved the roads, assembled a massive military, etc. all by ourselves. God had nothing to do with these things
God works in and through and for people at the same time. He warned us not to develop such an unhealthy and pompous attitude of vainly imagining we did all these things without His help and inspiration, even giving us the health to accomplish great things. God has blessed our efforts. It's true that God helps those who help themselves. The "Protestant work ethic" is a biblical work ethic.
9 a land in which you will eat bread without scarcity, in which you will lack nothing; a land whose stones are iron and out of whose hills you can dig copper. 10 When you have eaten and are full, then you shall bless the LORD your God for the good land which He has given you. 11 "Beware that you do not forget the LORD your God by not keeping His commandments, His judgments, and His statutes which I command you today, 12 lest—when you have eaten and are full, and have built beautiful houses and dwell in them; 13 and when your herds and your flocks multiply, and your silver and your gold are multiplied, and all that you have is multiplied; 14 when your heart is lifted up, and you forget the LORD your God...17 then you say in your heart, 'My power and the might of my hand have gained me this wealth.'
18 "And you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day. 19 Then it shall be, if you by any means forget the LORD your God, and follow other gods, and serve them and worship them, I testify against you this day that you shall surely perish. 20 As the nations which the LORD destroys before you, so you shall perish, because you would not be obedient to the voice of the LORD your God.
As Abraham Lincoln warned, he said we had forgotten our Great God and encouraged all to repent and pray that God might save our nation. We were spared that God might fulfill His many prophecies, His wonderful promises to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob about the peace and prosperity of their descendants because of ABRAHAM'S OBEDIENCE.
God has given us these many things and wonderful years and we have forgotten him as self-made men and women who vainly imagine we don't need God and this is all our doing, the work of our hands, so God - who controls the weather - will strip these things out of our hands and show us how we're at His mercy to humble us and bring us back to Him and remind us to keep His commandments, His holy Sabbath and biblical festivals, the "Jewish holidays," and reject the replacement theology and pagan holidays of bloody Rome!
If we have god to thank for the invention of the airplane then we have him to thank for 9/11.
That's just plain ridiculous. What we do with a gift is our responsibility. Everything has the potential to be a blessing or a curse. God gives us free moral agency to determine what we will for ourselves, what we will do with what we've been given: whether we'll squander our inheritance or use it wisely, with an attitude of gratitude and loving obedience.
I see you conveniently did not address Isaiah 24 I quoted, which says:
1. Behold, the LORD makes the earth empty, He makes it waste, and turns it upside down, and scatters abroad its inhabitants.
2. And it shall be, that as it is with the people, so with the priest; as it is with the servant, so with his master; as it is with the maid, so with her mistress; as it is with the buyer, so with the seller; as it is with the lender, so with the borrower; as it is with the taker of usury, so with the payer of usury to him.
3. The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD has spoken this word. 4 The earth mourns and fades away, the world languishes and fades away, the haughty people of the earth languish.
13. When this happens: in the midst of the land among the people, it shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and like the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done. 14 They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the LORD, they shall cry aloud from the sea. 15 Wherefore glorify you the LORD in the fires, even the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea. 16. From the furthermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe to me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yes, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously. 17 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth. 18 And it shall be, that he who flees from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he who comes up out of the midst of the pit shall be caught in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth shake. 19 The earth is completely broken down, the earth is fully dissolved, the earth is exceedingly moved. 20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and its transgression shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.
These verses prophesy destruction of everything and everybody which does not jibe with what you're telling me.
I did not ignore it and I did address it. Mankind will get to the point of no return: except for divine intervention no flesh would be saved alive, no human being would remain, just as Yeshua and the Prophets foretold. Within that Scripture it reveals survivors who are praising God, which I have highlighted.
21 For then there will be great tribulation [Time of Jacob's Trouble], such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake [the physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob] those days will be shortened.
9 Unless the LORD of hostsHad left to us a very small remnant,
We would have become like Sodom,
We would have been made like Gomorrah.
1 But now, thus says the LORD, who created you, O Jacob,
And He who formed you, O Israel:
“ Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by your name;
You are Mine.
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.
3 For I am the LORD your God,The Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
I gave Egypt for your ransom,
Ethiopia and Seba in your place.
God always saves a remnant to keep His promise alive to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob that He would be their God and the God of their descendants (which means they must always have some descendants). This GOOD NEWS is why the first chapter of Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall is appropriately called, "Survival Guaranteed!"
Saturday, November 22, 2008
David Ben-Ariel says his most recent work, Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall, was written from his experiences in life and travel.
Ben-Ariel was raised in Risingsun and Holland and is a high school graduate of Springfield High School.
The book, he says, addresses a lot of "hot issues" such as the construction of the Temple on the Temple Mount in Israel, the Sabbath versus Sunday, Passover versus Easter, the German-led empire, and other biblical issues.
Released in January by Publish America in Maryland, this is Ben-Ariel's first book.
"Many people believe Europe will be the next superpower," Ben-Ariel said. "Most Americans are ignorant of what's going on over there." He decided to "wake them up and give them food for thought."
"I want to make them start asking questions. It (the book) deals with things that effect the whole world."
Through his own research in Europe, the book looks at the history of the Holy Roman Empire and how Germany once dominated it, he said. He reports on true Christianity and the "plain truth of the Bible."
He said it is prophesied in the Bible that the justification of God is going to let Europe conquer us. "American, British and Jewish people will suffer defeat at the hand of Europe. They will conquer us because of God's will to let them because of our sins of immorality."
"The fate of our nation hangs in the balance. This could tip it. I want to alert of the coming Holocaust. The former Holocaust will look like child's play compared to what's coming."
Ben-Ariel said he has received mixed reactions from his book. "I have had good, bad and ugly reactions," he said. "It was an expected reaction."

C.H. Spurgeon on Christmas and Roman Catholicism
First, because we do not believe in the mass at all, but abhor it, whether it be sung in Latin or in English. Secondly, because we find no Scriptural warrant whatever for observing any day as the birthday of the Savior; and consequently, its observance is a superstition
Christmas is About Giving -- Says Who?
Going into debt certainly isn't biblical, so why not break free from the trance? The "Christmas" rush is a "drug" pushed by commercial pimps prostituting a supposedly Christian holiday for their ungodly profits! They hold hands around the cash register and sing, "What a friend we have in Jesus."
Why I No Longer Celebrate Christmas
I was blessed to grow up in Risingsun, Ohio next door to my Grandma and Grandpa Hoover on their farm that embraced where we lived, surrounding us with its loving arms on both sides (until the age of 11) and behind, with our woods over yonder a bit, that I loved to walk through as a boy, always looking for my "brother" hawk, circling overhead, to greet me...
Will God Curse Our Countries for Christmas?
Abominable Christians, those who have the perverted religious preference of tradition over truth, are just like every other sinner unwilling to confess and forsake their sins and seek to whitewash or justify them. The difference is such professing Christians often pretend to be better or more righteous than those physical idolaters and immoral folks (who also refuse to repent) while they engage in spiritual idolatry (putting tradition over truth) and spiritual immorality (whoring around with other gods and foreign ways) bringing divine judgment upon our nations.
Plea to Diehard Catholics & Protestants to Repent
Having clearly seen how the practice of homosexuality is a sin (as I testify in God and the Gays), I can now see clearly how SPIRITUAL HOMOSEXUALS, the bloody Roman Catholic whore and her Protestant prostitute daughters (Rev. 17:5), prefer tradition over truth.
Do You Prefer TRADITION Over Truth?
If anybody is honestly interested in knowing whether or not this or that doctrine is actually biblical or merely traditional, all they have to do is objectively search the Scriptures like the noble Bereans did in Acts 17:11, after hearing Paul out, to see whether what he taught was true...
Is the Plain Truth Too Strong?
"Cry aloud, spare not; Lift up your voice like a trumpet; Tell My people their transgression [the Church and Synagogue], And the house of Jacob [the family of Israelite nations - all Twelve Tribes of Israel] their sins. 2 Yet they seek Me daily, And delight to know My ways, As a nation that did righteousness, And did not forsake the ordinance of their God. They ask of Me the ordinances of justice; They take delight in approaching God" (Isaiah 58)

Philadelphia Church of God Leads the Laodicean Era (Part 1)
When Gerald Flurry wasn't anything in his own sight or mind God used him and now, unfortunately, it appears to have gone to his head, all the new revelation (simply a deeper understanding of some things), and he forgets that all truth is from and belongs to GOD and that God can use a donkey to deliver it (1 Cor. 4:7). Gerald Flurry has become so swollen in his own imagination that he fails to see that he is the leader of LAODICEA! He knows what warning God is giving the Laodiceans, of which he is chief! He had better heed his own words...
Philadelphia Church of God Leads Laodicean Era (Conclusion)
"It's certainly not my place to determine if what you believe God has shown you is true or not, but would you mind presenting Mr. Flurry with an abbreviated version of what you feel is inspired... as I highly doubt that he would have time to read your whole book."
Stephen Flurry and The Philadelphia Church of God
Stephen Flurry, son of Gerald Flurry, pastor general of the Philadelphia Church of God (based in Edmond, Oklahoma), has published a book that Amazon sells, Raising the Ruins: The Fight to Revive the Legacy of Herbert W. Armstrong.
The Work of God Must Go Forward!
The Work of God must go forward. The only work that's left to do now is focus on the NATIONAL LEVEL. We must get out God's ultimatum and fast! Europe is on the rise and Jerusalem is getting international attention (Zech. 14:2). Soon God's two witnesses will rise and shine in a world of darkness (Isa. 60:1-2). God's about to restore His lamp to the Middle East! (Rev. 11:3; 1 Kgs. 11:36; Amos 9:11; Zech. 12:8).
PCG: Carrying on Business as Usual
If you truly saw what is coming on this Earth, and had a vision of tomorrow, you would know that the Gathering Storm darkens as you sip champagne and boast that you're rich and in need of nothing, woefully ignorant that the Two Witnesses will soon be wearing sackcloth and fasting, not wining and dining at black tie dinners!
The Church of God Must Warn the World!
We know that certain prophecies were not to be fulfilled until these "last days." Therefore their sealed messages weren't to break their silence until the appointed time (Dan. 12:9). With the advent of the nuclear age, we've been living, for the first time in history, with the weapons of mass destruction that can erase all life from off planet Earth! (Matt. 24:21-22).
Politics in the Church of God Hinders Progress
Gerald Flurry refused to go forward with Beyond Babylon and fell backwards, treading old ground and is now going in circles, business as usual, as Europe rises and Judah and Israel have yet to be warned.
Worldwide Church Of God All Over Again?
Let’s see to it that Philadelphia Church of God (Judah) doesn’t go the way of the Worldwide Church of God (Israel). These biblical principles still apply: don’t put undue trust in men; work out your own salvation, it’s not a group affair; beware the scholarly approach that demands you rely on men - not God’s Spirit or personal Bible study.
"I have set Watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem"
God has called us to do a Work! Anyone can and should do good works in private, but God has called us collectively to COME OUT OF THE CLOSET and deliver His Message! We're to help save individuals and nations from the coming Holocaust!
Sir, - Mass expulsion of Palestinians without howls of protest and world condemnation? Yes, but unfortunately, only in the Gulf States. The UN obviously understands that such decisive acts are preventive measures to ensure national security from subversive elements who flout their support for their blood-brother Saddam Hussein. If only Israel would express such logic and concern for its personal health and national welfare...
Oct. 19, 1990
The Jerusalem Post
Sir, - "Nobody in the government and nobody who believes in democracy is ever going to give in to this people, not now, not tomorrow, not in 100 years, not in 1,000 years and not on this side of hell and hell is where these people ought to be."
A Knesset member's outburst after another terrorist attack? No, rather it's Northern Ireland's Minister Richard Weedham blasting the IRA's recent hospital bombing.
Perhaps Messrs. Bush and Baker will rush to the scene and convene another "peace" conference before this "instransigent" fellow fouls up their plans for a "new world order...."

Peace Now: Arabs and Jews Must Go Their Separate Ways
18 On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram and said, "To your descendants [through Isaac] I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates: 19 the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, 20 Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, 21 Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites."
THEY MUST GO
It is imperative that there begins, today, a campaign among world Jewry to explain the full extent of the Arab hatred and danger. The complete truth must be told to the masses of good Jews both to justify the need to remove the Arabs and to expose the dangers of the liberal Establishment bloc.
Israel's Only Way Out: Follow Kahane!
Israel must make concessions, Israel must do this, Israel must do that, while the Arabs continue to get away with mass murder and terrorism (while promising peace and feigning ignorance), aided and abetted by the international community...

Europe to Take Out Iran For Jerusalem
As the United States called upon Israel to become their virtual protectorate during Operation Desert Storm, the European Union will offer Israel guarantees of peace and security. Europe, not the overextended and highly inflated United States, will take out Iran.

He goes through the reasons why. If so, then who, why and how was he killed?

Zionism is an atheistic movement masquerading as the fulfillment of religious prophecy. Zionism is a plan for an end run around God’s. It is Satanism.
Biblical Zionism is definitely a part of the Word and Will of God, prophesied, as Christian Zionists recognize, even if some globalists attempt to pervert its holy purpose, as those running Israel into the ground are doing. The Hellenists, useful idiots in many ways, will fail and the plan of God, His grand design, will be fulfilled.
See: Christian Zionists, Jews, and Israel
God utilized political Zionism for His purposes, just as He utilized America's rebellion against the English throne. On the surface, neither were so special or righteous, but both were instrumental in fulfilling prophecy.
As for the treatment of the former inhabitants of the lands that God decreed for His people, whether Arabs or Indians, I'm sure the Canaanites would offer scathing condemnation but others would see God's purpose being worked out, however imperfectly to limited human vision. God addresses any injustices in His own way and time (2 Sam. 21:1-14), but dismisses those charges that exaggerate or exploit them to deny our basic biblical right to the lands He has chosen for us (Acts 17:26).
See: A Jewish Homeland
Rabbi Dovid Feldman, Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss & Massoud Shadjareh at WCAR
They look like those religious Jews who failed to make the move from their ghettos, who didn't let the fire under their butts get them going, blind to the prophecies about the restoration of the Jewish homeland, deaf to the cries to save themselves, who perished in the flames of the Holocaust.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE RABBIS?
"How can one explain the inaction of those rabbis who agree that we can enter the Temple Mount? How can one explain those who distort the truth and prohibit the entrance of Jews to the Temple Mount? After 2,000 years of prayers asking that God return us to Zion and speedily rebuild the Temple, what excuse could there be for preferring the Wall of Tears over the House of God?
The best answer can be found in the book, Ame Banim Smecha, written by Rabbi Yisachar Teichtel. Rabbi Teichtel was a Chasid who lived in Hungary and perished in the holocaust. While on the run from the Nazis, he wrote a powerful book quoting his sources from memory. He confronts the question that haunts many Jews: "why were so many religious Jews and Torah scholars killed during the holocaust?" His answer is unequivocal, the religious Jews and the Torah scholars watched the secular Zionists return to Zion; and they did not learn from their actions. Jews who prayed thrice daily for the return to Zion should have immediately realized that if secular Jews are leaving the exile, how much more so should they. By turning their backs on the Land of Israel, Rabbi Teichtel writes, their fate was sealed. God hates hypocrisy and punishes those who invoke his name in vain. And so they stayed in exile to be consumed by the fires of the Holocaust."

Here are some of my pictures of Kibbutz Reshafim volunteers on site and on various trips to Timna, Eilat, Bet Shean, Ein Gedi and Jerusalem, as well as some links to letters I wrote to an American friend about it all.
I enjoy reading your articles. Thank you for your courage and commitment to God's truth. I just wanted to mention the similarity between Obama and Nimrod. Nimrod was of the black race as is Obama. Nimrod ruled the world and was considered (and considered himself) a god (he is worshipped even to this day under the guise of Christianity). He was a mighty hunter BEFORE the Lord meaning he exalted himself above God. The entire world looked to him for their needs. I see Obama as a type of Nimrod in these end times. Many falsely consider him the Messiah or "the one". The entire world has placed its hopes in him. He also has a noticeable air of haughtiness and narcissism, that is, he considers himself EXALTED. Obama seems to me to be the 21st century Nimrod.
I also wanted to mention how Christ compares the time before his coming to the time before the Flood. He says in Matt. 24:37-38: “But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. “For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark,” (Gen.6-7). In addition to mixed marriages and divorce, I believe God is also addressing gay marriage which the nations of Israel are polluting humanity with.
Anyway, thanks again for your blog and keep fighting the good fight.

On June 4, 2008, Barack Obama said to you and a huge AIPAC audience: "Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided." Now that it is apparent that the President-Elect has broken his promise, and not just "clarified" his position, when are you going to confront him about his grievous breach of trust, and what will you say to him? You owe it to all of our fellow Jews in America, including the 78% of the Jewish voters who cast their ballot for Mr. Obama, and all of the Jews in Israel, to demand that he keep his original promise.
Obama endorses "Auschwitz borders" for Israel
His slogan, “They Must Go” was not a racial slur. It was a statement of fact... a fact that no Israeli politician has the courage to face even today...
Eighteen Years Later The Darkness is Palpable
Tuesday, November 18, 2008
For over 50 years, Herbert W. Armstrong warned that a German-led European combine would thresh the nations. When Germany lay in ashes after WWII, Mr. Armstrong had no doubt Germany would be back with a vengeance and he pounded this theme home through the pages of The Plain Truth magazine read by millions worldwide.
Are We Wrong About Europe? by Ryan Malone of The Philadelphia Trumpet magazine, reveals how they continue in Armstrong's tradition.
Konrad Adenauer said the West was "taking a calculated risk" when they started rebuilding Germany after the Holocaust. Before that President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill agreed: "It is our inflexible purpose to destroy German militarism and Nazism and to ensure Germany will never again be able to disturb the peace of the world."
Nevertheless, Helmut Schmidt reported Germany was again putting on "imperial airs," and author Bernard Conally wrote that France was struggling to "hold the old demons of Germany's character in check." Margaret Thatcher warned her deaf audience that "Germany is very powerful now - her national character is to dominate." Are they all just crying wolf? Or is the German beast about to devour again?
Robert Locke - who is opposed to the increasingly fascist Europe but doesn't believe Germany dominates it - stated: "I can't agree with you about Germany. It is a castrated PC marshmallow of a country, not a lion preparing to rule the world."
Consider Luigi Barzini's reference to “The mutable Germans” in The Europeans where he questions: “Which is the shape of the German Proteus this morning? Which will be its shape tomorrow? Johannes Gross thinks his countrymen wear a mask. 'But the day may come when someone lifts the mask,” he wrote. “The face that appears may be less full-cheeked and rosy than today's... So long as we wear the mask, we remain hidden and continue to conceal the situation from ourselves.'”
Ron Fraser (Is a World Dictator About to Appear?) exposes: “Although Germany is the prime mover in all these [European unification] efforts, in order to dispel any idea that the country may have expansionist intentions, these initiatives have generally been made under the cloak of being for the common good of the European Union.”
This sentiment concurs with Bismarck, who wrote in his diary (Nov. 1876): “I have always heard politicians use the word “Europe” when they were making requests to other powers which they did not dare formulate in the name of their own country.”
What is Germany hiding? Nuclear weapons? Who would be so foolish to imagine Germany without their own nuclear weapons when they were ahead of us in developing them? Certainly the grand design Franz Josef Strauss had in mind (with much at his disposal as Federal Minister of Nuclear Energy, and later Defense Minister) demanded independence from the United States. And Germany's Dolphin submarines delivered to Israel, equipped to handle nuclear weapons, underscore German military capabilities, yet the United States continues to blindly promote their control of the European continent, oblivious to The Dangers in US-German European Policy.
How many German plants in America are serving the interests of Germany's budding Fourth Reich? It's not only German factories and German businesses in America proving “that basic thoroughness of the orderly German” (Johannes Gross), since the secret Nazis had predetermined such a strategy, but bought and paid for American prostitutes in diverse and perverse positions of power aid and abet them! They expose our country to danger and will leave us infected as a nuclear wasteland!
What is Germany hiding behind the mask? Even if skeptics dismiss the mystic relationship between Germany and the Vatican (both forging Europe into their image believing “the German spirit will heal the world” -Emanuel Geibel), and doubt the Bavarian pope is soon going to promote a particular strong man and platform to save Europe and the world from the threat of Islam, shouldn't those responsible for our national security seriously consider the scenario of a United States of Europe betraying us? Shouldn't the intelligence experts consider that possibility and prepare for it? Why suffer the element of surprise that Germany is infamous for? “The German is acquainted with the hidden paths to chaos...” (Nietzche).
“...it is once again important to keep an eye on the German Proteus in an attempt to fathom the probable shape of things to come. What form will he assume next? After all, Germany is still "le coeur de l'Europe” (Barzini). Is the German marshmallow about to mutate into the German monster? Will the EU mask come off and expose the beast? Will the heart be healthy for Europe or dark and dangerous?
So, you assert your lineage to Joseph, which means you are descended of the interracial Manasseh and Ephraim, whose mother was Egyptian - a Hamite - and what's more, the daughter of a priest of the Egyptian gods.
Those who rightly divide the Word of truth know that NOWHERE does it say Asenath, the "Egyptian" mother of Manasseh (USA) and Ephraim (British- Israelites), was a Hamite. You've taken liberties with the Word of God that enslave you to error and cause you to stumble in your spiritual darkness.
Moses at one point was also called an "Egyptian," and those who carelessly assume all Egyptians were black would be sorely mistaken:
They answered, "An Egyptian rescued us from the shepherds. He [Egyptian Moses] even drew water for us and watered the flock."
Today when folks speak of Africans, most would think of blacks, however there are plenty of white Africans, even though their numbers are dwindling due to cruel conditions and savage mistreatment by those who fail to remember "Joseph" and appreciate how White Israelites (enjoying the blessings of Joseph's Birthright) built up their God-given lands, their biblical inheritances, that are now suffering, withering on the vine, due to unnatural circumstances and black mismanagement.
As far as Asenath being raised in a pagan household, so was Abraham, the father of the faithful, and Rahab and Ruth and Rachel and Leah, as Herbert W. Armstrong mentions in The Sin of Interracial Marriage:
"Abraham’s grandson, Jacob, who had worked for Laban for a long time you know, and when he left Laban, his wife Rachael stole the idols from her father Laban and carried those little idols with her. And Laban came out to find them. They were his gods. So they were worshipping a different god over there. But Abraham sent to get someone of that race, of that color, of that family, for a wife for Isaac, even though they were of a different religion."
Religious beliefs do not change one's race, our ethnic make up, our DNA, do they? However, the true religion is to change our heart, so help us God, to let go of human reasonings, idolatrous traditions, and learn to think like God and submit Father knows best (Isa. 55:7-9, Jeremiah 31:33, Ezekiel 18:31).
Re: George W. Bush’s True Legacy
I would have thought you a little nuts at one point in my life concerning George W. Bush because I personally, maybe one of the few, really like the guy. But in the last few years, I have come to believe that he is cut from the same cloth as Prescott Bush. Maybe it's a legacy thing and he doesn't really believe the evil he is committing. I suppose none of them look at it as evil. But the representing himself to be Christian while bringing forth a new world order is....well shall I say a little hypocritical. And then pressuring Israel to give away their land in the name of peace...well let's say he doesn't know much about the Word of God. So my eyes are ever opening. We are in for some pretty scary stuff.

Most people who divorce come to the conclusion that they were simply terribly unlucky in getting stuck with the wrong person. There is much to be said about being wise and choosing the right person to commit one’s life to.
The average American would love to have a happy marriage to the right individual. Most people who divorce come to the conclusion that they were simply terribly unlucky in getting stuck with the wrong person. There is much to be said about being wise and choosing the right person to commit one’s life to.
But, is a quick divorce likely to be the answer to one’s future happiness? If this were the case, then one would expect the divorce rate among second marriages to be much lower. After all, following a difficult marriage and divorce, one seeking to marry again would tend to be a little more cautious and a little more choosey. Amazingly enough, statistics don’t bear this out; divorce rates among second marriages rather than being significantly lower, in fact, are significantly higher.
A very interesting study entitled, "Does Divorce Make People Happy?," was published several years ago by the Institute for American Values. Research teams studied 645 individuals who reported unhappy marriages. When these unhappy couples were surveyed five years later, amazingly a much higher percentage of those who remained married reported they were now happy compared to those who had divorced. In fact, 66% of the unhappily married couples who stayed together were now reporting they were happy five years later. Only 19% of those unhappily unmarried couples who divorced or separated reported they were happy five years later. According to a review of this study in Psychology Today entitled, "Don’t Divorce, Be Happy," "In fact, the most miserable marriages had the most dramatic turnarounds. Seventy-eight percent of people who stayed in very unhappy marriages said that the marriages were currently happy five years later.
Granted, there are reasons for divorce that are valid—including physical abuse, drug addiction and rampant sexual immorality. But, for the more typical unhappy marriages, statistics clearly demonstrate that if one is unhappy in marriage, those who stay married are more than three times more likely to be happy five years later compared to those who divorce. Some are beginning to question the validity of no-fault divorces in various states.
Maggie Gallagher, author of the Abolition of Marriage, stated, "Imposing a five to seven year waiting period for contested no-fault divorces—as do many European jurisdictions—would serve the ends above justice and prudence, raising the number of marriages that ultimately succeed." The fact of the matter is divorce tends to undermine one’s happiness for a whole host of reasons, not the least of which is the impact on any children. When parents decide they are unhappy and divorce, it is not just the death of the marriage relationship, it is the death of the family relationship. Finances are another reason that unhappy couples who split still find themselves unhappy 81% of the time five years later.
According to Lenore Weitzman, author of Divorce Revolution, "One year after divorce, women’s standard of living decreases by 73%." The Creator of the marriage institution, the Supreme God, emphatically stated in Malachi 2:16, "The Lord God of Israel says that He hates divorce." God understands human nature far better than we do. Most all unhappy marriages are caused by the violation of spiritual principles that God has designed for marital happiness. More often than not, when two self-centered human beings divorce, they carry the same pattern of failure from the previous marriage into their single life or into their second marriage. This is the reason that most unhappy couples who stick it out and gradually change and adapt are happier five years later. On the other hand, those who refuse to change, divorcing their partner and carrying the same patterns of self-centeredness into their next marriage, tend to be unhappy five years later. In most cases, for one’s happiness, divorce should be the last choice, not the first choice.

Re: South Africa Ruined by Black Marxists (ANC)
Why speak peace when war is in your heart, as your post proves?
It looks like not anyone - Gentile or Jew is posting any comment.
Many email me privately, Jews, Israelites and Gentiles, just like the Jewish religious leader Nicodemus came to Yeshua in private (John 3:1-21). Of course, I would rather folks post publicly, even anonymously, but that's their prerogative isn't it?
Is it because other would-be correspondents are wise to your far-fetched conspiracy theories and your extreme Christian Zionist paranoia regarding Israel and your immagined threats to it - from Europe of all places.
Hitler restoring Germany to power and posing a military threat to Europe and British Israel appeared to be a "far-fetched conspiracy theory" to practically everybody but Winston Churchill, didn't it? And yet Churchill was right - a lone voice in the wilderness - and the rest were wrong. History is filled with "conspiracy theories" that found fulfillment in due time, that were put into practice, that became facts on the ground, as some courageously warned they would. Jabotinsky also promoted a "far-fetched conspiracy theory" - that European Jewry was about to be completely destroyed. Some said he was mad, others questioned his motivations, but Jabotinsky was right - and those who doubted or mocked him were dead wrong.
Both the Bible and history testify Israel has every right to be "paranoid" about blood-soaked Europe. Have you failed to learn the lessons of the Holocaust? Don't you know your Bible? Why play deaf, dumb and blind to the testimony they dare to share?
Is your name really David Ben-Ariel?
Yes, I legally changed it to David Ben-Ariel in 1989, as mentioned in God-given Names.
Is your name really Baruch?
Are you indeed in fact even a Jew?
I have never claimed to be a Jew according to halacha (Jewish law), according to the religion of Judaism. However, like Christian Zionist Orde Wingate, I recognize the identity of Joseph as British Israel: the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic peoples.
Joseph isn't Jewish! Many remain willfully or woefully (God knows) blind to this fact. Some of us know the importance of preserving the biblical distinction between the Twelve Tribes of Israel and don't carelessly confuse them all as "Jews." There are Jews and there are Israelites. Why not learn the difference?
Where you arrested and sent packing from Eretz Israel by the police and Shin Bet for attempting to blow up the Muslim Dome of the Rock?
I was never arrested but I was detained and later deported, as explained in Israel's Unjust Deportation of David Ben-Ariel and Blow Up the Mosques or An Expired Visa? The Israeli equivalent of the KGB, similar to Stasi, Shabak, know beyond any shadow of a doubt that I wasn't involved in any conspiracy theory they concocted.
Shin Bet overreacted to "Will Jerusalem become an international city?" -- an article of mine that was published in Jerusalem and read throughout Israel (and now the world) where I warn about the German-Vatican plot to occupy Jerusalem and encourage the proper Israeli authorities to restore the Temple Mount as the Temple Mount: to build the Third Temple as Bible-believing Christians and Jews know must and will be done.
What a wonderful idea - but such extreme and dangerous ideas have been explored by people before you
Dangerous ideas? Extreme to who? Those far out in Left field? The faithless? Those who cower like dhimmis before the Nazi Muslims? Those who advocate surrender rather than call upon Israel to exercise their sovereignty and remove the threat the Muslims present? Appeasement is dangerous - far more dangerous, as it will never work and only serves to incite the enemies of God and Israel to make greater demands.
I think of the late Chief Rabbi of Israel, Schlomo Goren of Blessed Memory. He wanted to do what you are alleged to have plotted. After East Jerusalem was liberated and the holy sites fell into our hands, he too wished - or he expressed the wish to blow up the Muslim holy site. He told Moshe Dayan what was on his mind and Dayan told him in no uncertain terms : "If you carry on talking like this Rabbi, I will have to arrest you".
Shame on Moshe Dayan! Like the Hellenists who are running Israel into the ground today and into the iron jaws of a German-Jesuit EU, Moshe Dayan hated anything truly Jewish or biblical and wanted to cut the Jewish People off from their spiritual roots.
Moshe had learnt well - from a Christian Zionist, Captain Orde Wingate - a true Friend of the Jewish people - who helped set up the Hagganah and had shown the Jewish people how to fight - that the true way to wage war was to show compassion to non-combitants and innocents and not to provoke non military or religious targets.
Moshe Dayan miserably failed to learn from the British-Israelite and Christian Zionist, Orde Wingate. Otherwise he would have said, "Amen!" to Schlomo Goren's prayerful thoughts that required faithful actions - especially since he had the authority and God-given opportunity to do it. Orde Wingate would know, as Christian and Jewish realists today do, that there are few innocents among the Arabs who occupy the Promised Land of Israel.
As a Bible believer, not just reader, Orde Wingate would recognize the Temple Mount must be restored as the Temple Mount and that it's an unnatural situation for it to continue to remain under Gentile occupation and suffer defilement by foreign objects.
Ben-Ariel - you're no Wingate
You've proven you're not qualified to say since you've misrepresented Orde Wingate already - not that I need to be a Wingate when I am Ben-Ariel, by the grace of God: a son of Jerusalem, a scion of the Lion of God.
the modern State of Israel doesn't need extreme religious millenarian right wingers like yourself to provoke acts of imported terrorism, calculated in your wild conspiracy theories to provoke an Armaggedon-type war which will hasten the advent of the Messiah (Moshiach).
Look at how you spew stereotypes and expose your ignorance of my beliefs! You don't have a clue - or at least you pretend to be so gullible to believe the conspiracy theories, the disinformation campaign, Shabak engages in against me (and all who truly love Israel), since they suffer from the Cain syndrome.
I don't subscribe to your stereotypical Christian beliefs and I wasn't involved in any provocative act - except for writing an article exposing the German-Jesuit plans for Jerusalem that has provoked their useful idiots. It appears truth terrorizes those who live a lie and prefer darkness to light.
And in your crazy reckoning us Jews will finally accept Jesus. Fuck off, with friends like you - who needs enemies?
I know that ultimately our Jewish brethren will look up and at long last recognize Yeshua - the Pierced One - and mourn for Him as for their only Son. I also know Judaism teaches everybody must become a Noahide under Mashiach (Messiah) who isn't Jewish, either by conviction or coercion. Do I fear such beliefs or lose sleep over them? No. I'm not irrational or paranoid but exercise the sound mind the Scriptures afford.
My staunchly pro-Israel, Christian Zionist beliefs, aren't the threat to Israeli sovereignty or Jerusalem's future that Jews should be concerned about. The "friends" Israelis would do well to beware are folks like Bill Clinton, George Bush and all those European leaders who are pushing them to accept a "peace" that has no basis in reality, as well as embracing "peace partners" like Mahmoud Abbas who will stab them in the back.
I see, in your articles and blogs, you've also rubbished our Labour President Shimon Peres.
You mean that bloody vulture Yitzhak Rabin referred to as an "indefatigable subversive"? Has Yitzhak Rabin "rubbished" Shimon Peres or merely exposed the dirt about him? I don't doubt that unclean bird has done some good for Israel, despite himself, but that doesn't justify Shimon Peres selling out Israel or betraying Jerusalem.
And when it came time to make peace,Shimon Peres wasn't found wanting. He agreed, as did Begin to hand back the Sinai to Egypt. Then on to Camp David and Wye River - but we didn't have a real partner in Yasser Arafat - and worse was to come with Hamas. It still was worth the try. Trying to save lives. This is not a weakness of yiddishkeit - but a real strength - this striving for peace.
Israel never had a peace partner. It is not only irresponsible, but criminal and insane, to dismember the Land or sacrifice life on the self-righteous altar of "striving for peace" rather than enforce peace through strength as Meir Kahane called for, remembering the Law of Moses with its God-given solutions (Malachi 4:4, Daniel 9:11).
In spite of all the terrorism that is waged against the Jewish people. Though when it comes to defence, there is unity amongst us in a strong IDF with first strike capacity.
Israel, like the United States and British Commonwealth, has the power but lacks the will or proper leaders to use it, as well as suffering from a devastating loss of national meaning and purpose and drive, as prophesied: "And I will break the pride of your power" (Leviticus 26:19) and "The whole head is sick, And the whole heart faints" (Isaiah 1:5). Your treacherous leaders insured defeat in Lebanon with their restraint and retreat, so what are you blathering about? Gaza continues to be a bleeding wound and Sderot suffers and Jerusalem is about to be brutally raped.
I'm a left winger who has fought with the South African Defence Force in Angola, with the ANC in Zimbabwe and South Africa and with the IDF in Judea and Sumaria - and I am prepared to let the latter go if we can secure peace - or we are wasting too many lives in a territory that can't be properly militarily defended.
It's good you fought with the South African Defence Force in Angola, but why then turn around and terribly serve as a tool for the ANC terrorists in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe ruins) and dying South Africa? Having served in Judea and Samaria, you should know Kahane was right: Israel must expel sworn Arab enemies and annex those biblical lands they presently occupy. It's defeatist to bleat otherwise.
"It is imperative that there begins, today, a campaign among world Jewry to explain the full extent of the Arab hatred and danger. The complete truth must be told to the masses of good Jews both to justify the need to remove the Arabs and to expose the dangers of the liberal Establishment bloc."
- They Must Go!
The strength of the State of Israel is that it is a democratic secular Jewish State
Israel is an evil oligarchy, as Forbes magazine and others have exposed. The treacherous Israeli oligarchy has a weakness for German-Jesuit dictates and doesn't care if it sacrifices individuals (Yitzhak Rabin) or the whole nation to please their masters (who will dump them).
We go out into the world as men and keep our Jewishness in our hearts and our thrice daily prayers.
The Temple Mount isn't in Jewish hands because it's not in Jewish hearts. Actions speak louder than words, and those who merely pray and fail to act upon their faith are hypocrites whose prayers are rejected. Jews must demand their religious rights upon the Temple Mount and put prayers into practice. And since when does a "left winger" (as you profess to be) pray three times daily?
Any divisions in the Jewish people are largely artificial - the result of crazy fanatics like the fundamentalist bastard who thought that G-d gave him the right to kill a wonderful mensch and patriot like General Yitzak Rabin
THE BIG LIE. Although the stooge Yigal Amir was goaded by Avishai Raviv, a documented Israeli government agent provocateur, those who have studied the Kempler video of the staged assassination know he fired, as Israeli security shouted for the world to hear, blanks! And it's also documented Yigal Amir didn't have a single speck of gunpowder residue on his hands, etc. Read Barry Chamish's indicting book, Who Murdered Yitzhak Rabin? for greater details, or any of the four or more books on the subject by others who come to the same conclusion: Shimon Peres came to power over Rabin's dead body.
- as your Jesus, David, probably told you to kill the Arabs on the Temple Mount.
Yeshua loves the Arabs enough He will welcome them in the House of Prayer for All Peoples when He reigns as King of the Jews, the King of Israel.
A month before Shabak murdered Rabin (on purpose or by woeful neglect), I attempted to pray upon the Temple Mount - not slay - and read my Bible in peace and was disturbed by the barking of Muslim dogs. Israel loudly professes to guarantee "freedom of access" to places of worship, yet Israeli authorities look the other way as Muslims trample the religious rights of Christians and Jews upon the Temple Mount daily.
Why do you aid and abet Muslim discrimination against Christians and Jews? Why do you despise the holy land of Israel that you would surrender it to sworn enemies without a fight? Why do you hate those who love Israel? Regardless, the mosques will soon be history, the Third Temple will be built, and King Messiah will liberate Jerusalem from Gentile occupation.
