Terror Murder in Israel

26 09 2017

 

victims of terror

Today, a West Bank Palestinian, with a work permit for Israel, murdered three Israelis (one was an Arab Israeli citizen). He killed the three guards at an Israeli checkpoint. He had been cleaning house for one Israeli customer for two and a half years.  His own house was upper middle class.  He also announced on Facebook (above photo) that he wanted his terrorist pension to be given to his wife. What does this tell us?

  1. This was pre-meditated murder/terror.
  2. It was not done because he lived in poverty.
  3. It was planned well in advance.
  4. He boasted of it on Facebook.
  5. Facebook was his last will and testament.
  6. He banked on the policy of the Palestinian Authority to pay a lifetime salary to his wife for his “martyrdom.”

So, when did murder get defined as martyrdom? The answer is: 1,500 years ago with the birth of Islam. Have you noticed the difference between Christian and Muslim martyrdom? For Christians and Jews, it is simply because they exist. They are hunted down by obedient, observant Muslims and killed. As for Muslims, they initiate the violence as the perpetrators. Yet, in the perverse anti-Christ religion of the Koran, they get glory and eternal rewards for killing infidels. The Palestinians have added a new wrinkle by including millions of dollars in their budget to pay terrorists in prison and their families in the most perverse form of “welfare.” This has become a murder mill for hire. And Israel is supposed to negotiate with these monsters?

This evil criminal was not a “freedom fighter” as they are called by the PA and Hamas. This perversion of terms must be exposed. Yet, he will probably have a street or a soccer field named after him. Seriously, that is what they will do. It is a culture of death.

Here is a report added since I first posted this story…

Facebook page of Abbas’ Fatah movement praises terrorist who murdered 3 Israelis, calls terrorist a ‘Martyr.’

We must stand for truth, love truth and speak up to the propaganda. This same blight on humanity is spreading across the Western world and is coming to America.

My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Yehovah; In the morning I will direct it to You, And I will look up. ​For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness, Nor shall evil dwell with You. The boastful shall not stand in Your sight; You hate all workers of iniquity. You shall destroy those who speak falsehood; ​Yehovah abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.
But as for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy; In fear of You I will worship toward Your holy temple. Lead me, O Yehovah, in Your righteousness because of my enemies; Make Your way straight before my face. Psalm 5:3-8

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the families of the true martyrs.

Sheep or Lemmings?

30 08 2017

220px-Tunturisopuli_Lemmus_Lemmus Are you a sheep or a lemming? Do you follow the crowd, the mob, mass hysteria? Or are you a sheep who knows the voice of the shepherd and follows it to safety? Propaganda depends on the mob mentality. Today’s cultural chaos requires true believer to know the voice of Jesus. We need to listen to the Holy Spirit, Who was given as our Teacher of all the truths that Jesus taught in His earthly ministry. This post is shared in the context of Hurricane Harvey.

First, let me admit that lemmings committing mass suicide is a myth. However, the metaphor for human behavior does exist:

Someone who blindly follows a crowd—maybe even toward catastrophe—is called a lemming. Over the past century, the myth has been invoked to express modern anxieties about how individuality could be submerged and destroyed by mass phenomena, such as political movements or consumer culture. Encyclopædia Britannica

So, we need to test the spirits to see if they are from God. Do not blindly accept everything you hear. Test it. “Watch the witness!” as brother Arthur Burt always said. Does the report agree with what the Holy Spirit is saying in your heart? Does it agree with the Bible?

Beloved, do not believe  every spirit, but test the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1

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

This is serious business. As we watch the rise of chaos and anarchy in our nation, we must be more vigilant. Keep our lamps filled with the oil of the Holy Spirit.

On the brighter side, even in the midst of the terrible devastation of Hurricane Harvey this week, hearts have turned to God for His mercy. Even the media cannot ignore the colorblind love of neighbor helping neighbor. The lie of racial division is exposed by the love poured out without respect to skin color from both victim and rescuer. Media types have been heard more than ever sending not only their “thoughts,” but openly sending their “prayers.” I pray that our nation will turn our hearts to Heaven and the fountain of mercy from the living God Yehovah.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the United States.

Astounding Love

17 08 2017

Dry Bones test

Hate Nazis, hate white supremacists, hate Jews, hate Muslims, hate alt-right, hate alt-left, hate Antifa, hate communists, hate police, hate media, and hate Trump. Exactly how many people from either side in Charlottesville last week were motivated by the love of Jesus? The number one attribute of Yehovah God is love. His love for the whole world is astounding. More hatred is directed at God than at any human being. Yet He loves us.

There is a new method for reaching Muslims for Jesus. A friend who has spent time on the ground in Europe among the refugees has shared an amazing fact. The best way to share Jesus is to use a smart phone. Find out their language and bring up 1 Corinthians 13 in their language. That type of love is unknown in their religion and personal experience. One man began reading and weeping as he said he had never heard of such love. He accepted Jesus as the Messiah and Son of God and was baptized. This is being repeated over and over. Praise God!

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.
So, what do we see in the riots and terrorism? Is it love? Of course not, it is simply what the Bible calls the deeds of the flesh. 

Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Galatians 5:19-25

In addition, we know that satan is adding fuel to the fire with his demonic minions and principalities. It is more important than ever that we do not go there. Don’t give your soul to the wars of men. Stand for righteousness. Stand for Jesus and His love. Be led by the Holy Spirit in everything you say and everything you do. Speak up, and stand up in the supernatural love of Yehovah.

Not Fake News – NPR

12 08 2017

This is hard to believe, but I am not making this up. It comes from National Public Radio News. The city of Boston and other cities think Islamophobia is such a problem that they are using tax payer money to put up posters around Boston to “educate” citizens how to handle Islamophobia.

Islamophobia

The city of Boston is launching a poster campaign to fight Islamophobia by encouraging bystanders to intervene, in a nonconfrontational way, if they witness anti-Muslim harassment. Starting Monday, the city began installing 50 posters around the city with advice on what to do if you see Islamophobic behavior. The posters recommend sitting by a victim of harassment and talking with them about a neutral subject while ignoring the harasser.NPR

Have you ever seen posters helping to diffuse anti Jew hatred? A Jew is six times more likely to be attacked than a Muslim. That is an official FBI statistic over a ten-year period.

Even the term is bogus. It means “fear of Islam.” Christians have no fear of Islam. Even if they do succeed in killing us, we know we will be raised from the dead and live eternally with Jesus. We fear the living God. It is He who forgives and is abundant in mercy.

For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You. Psalm 86:5

What We Are Up Against

13 07 2017

What are we facing from the global terrorist threat? It is more than an ideology. We are face to face with demonic evil. Israel has been dealing with it for decades. Here is an example from just last week (July 6,2017). Official Palestinian Authority TV praised a man responsible for murdering 22 school children and four adult hostages in a 1974 terrorist attack in Israel. They make monuments and name streets after these so-called “martyrs” and “freedom fighters”. This video is not from 1974, it is from last week!

Isaiah saw this evil in Jerusalem before the Babylonian captivity. It is not unique to the Palestinians or the Jews of Isaiah’s day. It is the un-redeemed nature of sinful man under the influence of Satan, the devil, who comes only  to “steal, kill and destroy” (in the words of Jesus in John 10:10). Yet, even as Isaiah describes the evil murderous heart of sin, he begins with God’s ability to save us.

Listen! Yehovah’s arm is not too weak to save you, nor is his ear too deaf to hear you call. It’s your sins that have cut you off from God. Because of your sins, he has turned away and will not listen anymore. Your hands are the hands of murderers, and your fingers are filthy with sin. Your lips are full of lies, and your mouth spews corruption. No one cares about being fair and honest. The people’s lawsuits are based on lies. They conceive evil deeds and then give birth to sin. They hatch deadly snakes and weave spiders’ webs. Whoever falls into their webs will die, and there’s danger even in getting near them. Their webs can’t be made into clothing, and nothing they do is productive. All their activity is filled with sin, and violence is their trademark. Their feet run to do evil, and they rush to commit murder. They think only about sinning. Misery and destruction always follow them. They don’t know where to find peace or what it means to be just and good. They have mapped out crooked roads, and no one who follows them knows a moment’s peace. Isaiah 59:1-9 NLT

Please read the rest of Isaiah 59. We had a great Bible study in our Tuesday night group using this chapter. It is time to wake up and know what we are up against. Our confidence in this battle is that Yehovah is on the job. We have read the end of the Book, and we win, if we stand with Yehovah God and Yeshua His Son.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Melania and the Lord’s Prayer

20 02 2017

Here is a post from my favorite writer (who happens to be my wife). Doreen was really inspired by Melania last Saturday at the Melbourne, Florida Trump rally. She also responded to horrible criticisms of Melania. I hope you enjoy.

My heart hurts today for a very lovely lady, the First Lady of the United States.I was not on the “Trump Train” in the beginning of the primaries, but before long, I recognized that God’s hand was on a Trump presidency. He was moved forward through a very difficult process to final victory. It had to have been an act of God. But this post is not about President Trump. It is concerning his wife who has been faithfully supporting him all along the way.

I know nothing, really, about Melania’s past. I do know that she is a legal immigrant who speaks five languages, that she is devoted to her husband and her son, and she loves the United States of America. I also know that she is a woman, and she is human, and I can imagine how devastated she must be under the weight of the horrible things that have been said about her this past week. She has been called ugly names, mocked for her (very charming) accent, and criticized for saying the Lord’s Prayer at the Rally in Melbourne, FL yesterday. She was mocked for reading the prayer instead of saying it from memory. How miserably critical and malicious does one have to be to do this to her? One poisonous tweet actually said she couldn’t possibly be a Christian if she couldn’t say the prayer from memory. Seriously? I would address these detractors and ask: “How many languages do you speak?” “Could you stand in front of thousands of people and speak without notes?” “Have you been given the authority to say who is a Christian and who is not?”

My respect for Melania Trump soared after seeing her step forward after being thus maligned, and with grace and humility, lead with, “Let us pray…” I was so proud of her! She continued:

“Our Father in heaven,  Hallowed be Your name.  Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses,as we forgive those who trespass against us. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever (and ever). Amen.”

She said this with sincerity and feeling. The crowd joined in with her, and it was truly a holy moment.

I would like to speak a warning to those who feel it is their duty to tear down another. The scripture that includes this prayer (Matthew 6) doesn’t stop with “Amen”. Jesus felt it necessary to explain one part of this prayer. Do you know what the next verse says?

“For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

I never pray this prayer anymore without thinking about this passage. If I DO NOT FORGIVE, I will not be forgiven. The way I forgive is the way I AM ASKING GOD TO FORGIVE ME! Is the way I forgive the gold standard I want God to use towards me? Lord, have mercy on us all!

Melania Trump is a beautiful, gracious, classy lady. I’m sure she is not without sin, as none of us are. I admire our First Lady greatly and I pray for her. I pray that the weight of her new position and the ugliness of the attacks against her will not crush her. May these experiences, good and bad, serve to drive her further into the loving and accepting arms of Jesus. I believe she will serve us well in the White House.

The Unspoken Truth

10 02 2017

dry-bones-jewish-truthThis is another classic Israeli cartoon from my favorite cartoonist, Yaakov Kirschen. His point is the central problem with a Palestinian state. No matter what talking points the Palestinian Authority uses, they absolutely refuse to accept a Jewish state. The only answer is still simply the annexation of most of Judea and Samaria (the West Bank). The two-state idea is dead.

Here is the final word about the subject from God’s own voice:

“Therefore prophesy concerning the land of Israel, and say to the mountains, the hills, the rivers, and the valleys, ‘Thus says the Lord Yehovah: “Behold, I have spoken in My jealousy and My fury, because you have borne the shame of the nations.” Therefore thus says the Lord Yehovah: “I have raised My hand in an oath that surely the nations that are around you shall bear their own shame. But you, O mountains of Israel, you shall shoot forth your branches and yield your fruit to My people Israel, for they are about to come. For indeed I am for you, and I will turn to you, and you shall be tilled and sown. I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, all of it; and the cities shall be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt. I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bear young; I will make you inhabited as in former times, and do better for you than at your beginnings. Then you shall know that I am Yehovah. Yes, I will cause men to walk on you, My people Israel; they shall take possession of you, and you shall be their inheritance; no more shall you bereave them of children.” Ezekiel 36:6-12
