Quick History Lesson

A Quick History Lesson

President Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King were both Republicans.

The Ku Klux Klan (KKK) was the “enforcement” arm of the Democrat Party well into the 20th century. (See PBS article)

The Democratic Divorce from Israel is nearly complete.

You can see from the above simple facts that the political move to the left is a serious threat to Israel. This is not actually about politics, but about truth and lies.

Carefully determine what pleases the Lord. Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them. It is shameful even to talk about the things that ungodly people do in secret. But their evil intentions will be exposed when the light shines on them, for the light makes everything visible. Ephesians 5:10-14

Pray for truth. Pray for rain in Israel. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Why Multiculturalism is Bad

3 11 2017

diversityFirst, let’s be clear. The Kingdom of Yehovah God is multiracial, but “multicultural” is completely different.

And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals; for You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nationRevelation 5:9

If you mean that people have different minor customs, that is normal. However, if you define culture as maintaining a completely separate system, then you find yourself in conflict with the Bible. Islam under Sharia law is the best current example.

Sharia is an entire way of life for the faithful Muslim. It is not only a religious duty, but it governs every aspect of one’s life. Because it is a supremacist ideology, it is incompatible with any other government or religion. Sharia is in direct contradiction to the US Constitution, Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights and even the Magna Carta. Most Americans have forgotten that our most important founding document is the Bible. All of our great founding documents issue directly from Biblical principles and concepts.

There is a distinct, clearly defined, Biblical culture that, much like Sharia, governs every aspect of the believer’s life. It starts with the Ten Commandments and continues through the great love chapter of 1 Corinthians 13. Following these precepts, leads to historic blessings and favor from the God of the Bible. The Western nations have been blessed because of Biblical, Judeo-Christian foundations.

Let all the earth fear Yehovah; Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him. For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast. Yehovah  brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect. The counsel of Yehovah stands forever, the plans of His heart to all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is Yehovah, the people He has chosen as His own inheritance. Psalm 33:8-12

The name of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is Yehovah, the Creator, our Father. Perverted modern media still lies to us, by miss-translating the Islamic war/suicide cry as “God is Great.” The true translation is “Allah is the Greatest.” Their god is not a father and has no son, therefore, a completely different god. When Yehovah warned against “other gods,” He revealed the fact that people would come up with other gods.

“When Yehovah your God cuts off from before you the nations which you go to dispossess, and you displace them and dwell in their land, take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed from before you, and that you do not inquire after their gods, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise.’ You shall not worship Yehovah your God in that way; for every abomination to Yehovah which He hates they have done to their gods; for they burn even their sons and daughters in the fire to their gods. Deuteronomy 12:29-31

It matters what you believe.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and rain for the Land!

3D Printed Food?

30 10 2017
Star Trek replicato

Food Replicator from Start Trek TV Series

Today I offer a fun diversion from politics and disasters, for your dining pleasure.

Printer, can you please make me a low-fat burger with fries? The Times of Israel

The technology relies on two basic elements: cartridges containing the meal’s ingredients — in powder or solution form —  and hardware that applies heat and shapes the matter. The cartridges contain crystalline nano-cellulose as a core element, along with proteins, carbohydrates, fat, antioxidants and vitamins. Following individualized specs provided by the consumer on a 3D printer, the technology applies localized heat and shapes the raw material through infrared lasers. 

Created through extraction from cellulose, the most abundant biomaterial on earth, nano-cellulose has a variety of technological and biomedical applications and is an expanding global market. Unlike starch — which is commonly used in food to “bind” meals together – nano-cellulose has no calories and is easily degradable by the body’s enzymes.

The above quote is from a fascinating article from The Times of Israel announcing the combination of 3D printing technology with actual nutritional food ingredients. It will print out real food. The concept was first popularized in the public’s imagination in the Star Trek TV series, The Next Generation,  around 1987.

In Star Trek replicator is a machine capable of creating (and recycling) objects. Replicators were originally seen used to synthesize meals on demand, but in later series they took on many other uses.Wikipedia

So, what has this to do in a blog about Israel and Christian Zionism? Well, I am a CZ and I love Israel, and I love food. Mainly, it is just a fun story. Even Jesus (Yeshua) enjoyed lighter moments, even more than His disciples, as revealed in this verse:

But to the Son He says: “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of  righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness more than Your companions. Hebrews 1:8-9  (quoted from Psalm 45:7. The Hebrew word is translated: cheerfulness, gladness, joy, mirth, and rejoicing.)

Pray for peace and rain for Jerusalem!

“We don’t want peace.”

27 10 2017

abbassept262016

The Palestinian Authority repeatedly lies, as this quickly deleted tweet reveals: “Our goal is the end of Israel. … We don’t want peace. We want war and victory.” This was not Hamas or Hezbollah or ISIS, this was the PA. Yet, the media never reports the lies. They stick with the propaganda narrative of the Palestinians as victims of those nasty Israelis. The quote in the above picture from Abbas is a prime example. No Jews in a Palestinian State? Here is just a short commentary on media bias toward Israel.

The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) — an umbrella organization for Palestinian groups headed by Palestinian Authority (PA) President and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas — recently tweeted: “Our goal is the end of Israel. … We don’t want peace. We want war and victory.” 

The media, however, consistently refuses to detail the track record of Palestinian terrorism, murder, incitement and rejectionism. Although the AFP detailed al-Maliki’s 2016 statement, for example, many other news outlets — including The Washington Post and USA Today, failed to report them. 

In another example, Israeli-Arab journalist Khaled Abu Toameh highlighted a recent statement by Abbas’ deputy, Mahmoud al-Aloul, who said that Fatah doesn’t recognize Israel — a direct violation of the Oslo accords.

As CAMERA has frequently pointed out, al-Aloul is an unrepentant terrorist, also known as Abu Jihad. His February 2017 appointment to be Abbas’ number two was similarly ignored by many in the Western press.

Through their comments and actions, prominent Palestinian officials are violating Oslo on a daily basis — and blatantly calling for the destruction of Israel. And the media can’t be troubled to report on it. The Algemeiner

All the links in this story are trusted sources for the truth about Israel and the Middle East. CAMERA is especially valuable as a site that not only exposes the media mistakes and lies about Israel, but they tirelessly work media to retract the errors. We live in an era where it is harder and harder to discern the truth. Pray much and learn the trusted sources. Ask the Holy Spirit anytime you have a question about the truth printed.

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for rain and for lies to be exposed to truth lovers!

9 Lies About Israel

24 10 2017

Woman Stuns Arab News Anchor By Telling Truth About Israel – Israel Today

“We have made lies our refuge.” Here are nine lies about Israel:

  1. Israel is Apartheid. See photos of happy integrated Arab Israeli citizens.
  2. Revisionist history, says ancient Israel never existed.
  3. Occupation, says disputed lands are “occupied lands.
  4. Israeli brutality. The PA projects its own brutality as coming from Israel.
  5. Oslo Accords: Promises failed. Warnings fulfilled.“The so-called experts were for disengagement. Critics warned against it and they were right.Not a single danger warned against, that hasn’t materialized and not a single promise of proponents, that has materialized. The problem is not what Jews do,  but what they are: Jewish.” Dr. Martin Sherman, Israel Institute for Strategic Studies
  6. Land for peace. No peace.
  7. Leave Lebanon for peace. No peace.
  8. Leave Gaza for peace. No peace.
  9. Leave West Bank (Judea and Samaria) for peace. No peace.

 

Because you have said, “We have made a covenant with death, and with Hell we are in agreement. When the overflowing scourge passes through, It will not come to us, for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood we have hidden ourselves.” 

Therefore thus says the Lord Yehovah: “Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act hastily. Also I will make justice the measuring line, and righteousness the plummet; The hail will sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters will overflow the hiding place. Your covenant with death will be annulled, and your agreement with Hell will not stand; When the overflowing scourge passes through, then you will be trampled down by it.Isaiah 28:15-18

Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, 1 Timothy 4:1-2

Pray for the truth about Israel. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Pray for rain in Israel!

Trump 8 / Media 0

14 10 2017

Trump at Value Voters Summit 2017

If you are keeping score, this week it was President Trump with eight wins and the media with zero. Hollywood was caught knee deep in scandals and infighting to further frustrate the left. But, let’s look at the wins for the Administration.

  1. Trump ended coal power plant restrictions (CPP)
  2. Stopped illegal subsidies in Obama Care
  3. Enacted market-based health insurance reforms
  4. Declined to certify Iran deal
  5. Exited UNESCO over anti-Semitism
  6. Welcomed Pakistan freed hostages
  7. Goodell backed down on the National Football League anthem fight.
  8. Confirmed that the Department of Defense (DOD) severed all ties with the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), scrubbing SPLC training from DOD manuals.

Not a bad week for the good guys. God really answered the intercessors in DC last week at Rise Up/The Call at the Mall. We must keep praying for our government with the same passion with which we pray for Israel. Here is a great intercessors site: Capital Hill Prayer Partners 

In addition, President Trump told the Value Voters Summit that “We must worship God, not government.”

Remember to keep praying for abundant rains to break the drought in northern Israel and fill up the Sea of Galilee.

“He will also send you rain for the seed you sow in the ground,
and the food that comes from the land will be rich and plentiful.
In that day your cattle will graze in broad meadows.”
Isaiah 30:23 NIV

Let Israel Rains Begin

11 10 2017

Rain in Israel

Thirsty Sea of Galilee sinking toward lowest level ever recorded – Days before tens of thousands of Israelis descend on the Sea of Galilee for the Sukkot holiday, the Water Authority warned that the freshwater lake is at dangerously low levels and expected to reach “the lowest level ever recorded.”

 

The Lord woke me early Monday morning and led me to pray for rain for Israel. Later Monday, my friend Rob Brown, shared the news from Israel of a surprising early rainstorm. It was an answer to my prayers (and prayers of many others, I am sure). I was elated to be used so directly in intercession. It encouraged me to pray for abundant rains to come and refill the Sea of Galilee. Please let it be a word for you as well to pick up the burden to break the drought in Israel.

Ask Yehovah for rain in the time of the latter rain.
Yehovah will make flashing clouds;
He will give them showers of rain,
Grass in the field for everyone. Zechariah 10:1

Water flow into Sea of Galilee at lowest level in a century

150 rescued near Dead Sea as first rain hits Israel 

Pray for rain and for the peace of Jerusalem!
