Hostility against "Jewish holidays" to be history!

Romans 8:7-8

7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. 8 So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

We see some of this hostility hung over into the Millennium and quickly put in check by the King of Kings. All - Jew, Israelite, Gentile - must become converted and have the law written upon the tablets of our hearts and minds, expressed in word and in deed, in attitude and in actions, by the grace of God (Heb. 8:1).

Zechariah 14:17-18

17 And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, on them there will be no rain. 18 If the family of Egypt will not come up and enter in, they shall have no rain; they shall receive the plague with which the LORD strikes the nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.

Thankfully, many others will have a childlike attitude and humbly be excited to learn what they were never taught by their traditional teachers:

Isaiah 2:2-4

2 Now it shall come to pass in the latter days
Thatthe mountain of the LORD’s house
Shall be established on the top of the mountains,
And shall be exalted above the hills;
And all nations shall flow to it.
3 Many people shall come and say,

“ Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,
To the house of the God of Jacob;
He will teach us His ways,
And we shall walk in His paths.”
For out of Zion shall go forth the Torah,
And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
4 He shall judge between the nations,
And rebuke many people;
They shall beat their swords into plowshares,
And their spears into pruning hooks;
Nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
Neither shall they learn war anymore.

Yeshua's Bride will gladly follow His ways and celebrate the same biblical festivals as Him and avoid unclean ways and pagan holidays like the plague! Such abominations will be history and vain traditions trashed. Yeshua will not be unequally yoked.

I'm happy to announce the biblical Sabbath, the biblical Festivals of the LORD, the biblical ways will be kept throughout all the earth, by ALL nations, under the glorious reign of the King Yeshua - whom some of us honestly call Lord while others take His Name in vain, holding on to their idolatrous traditions of men (1 John 2:4).

Matthew 5:17-19

17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. 19 Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Revelation 22:14-15

4 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. 15 But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.

Plea to Diehard Catholics & Protestants to Repent

That way such folks won't fall for what's soon to occur, having been forewarned:

Sorcerer-Pope to Bewitch Europe and Mislead the Masses!

Come Lord Yeshua and destroy the darkness by the light of your Word, as foretold in the Law and the Prophets.

Open Letter to President Bush from Temple Mount Faithful about Ehud Olmert visit

Dear Friend,

This open urgent letter was sent by the Chairman of the Temple Mount Faithful, Gerson Salomon to President Bush 24 hours before his meeting with the Prime Minister of Israel, Ehut Olmert. This is an anti-godly meeting. During this meeting they will discuss and decide about redividing the Land of Israel given by G-d only to His people Israel and to expel tens of thousands of Israelis from the most biblical Jewish areas in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem and to establish a "Palestinian" state. Everyone is called to immediately reject these anti-godly plans. Please read this open letter to President Bush and send it in you name as well to President Bush and to your Senators and Congressmen. Let all of us be with G-d and His people and not against them.

Thank you for all of this, in the name of the G-d and the people of Israel He will bless those who bless Israel.

Your Faithful Servant in Jerusalem,

An Open Urgent Letter to President Bush from the G-d and the People of Israel in Jerusalem

Please don’t join with Prime Minister Olmert in dividing the Land of Israel given by G–d to His people Israel only. Cancel your anti-godly “Road Map”

On the 23rd of May the Prime Minister of Israel, Ehud Olmert, is coming to meet you in a terribly sinful mission. He is coming to you to ask for your support to his anti-godly and sinful plan to divide the Land of Israel given by the G–d of Israel only to His people Israel forever in an eternal covenant that He made with Abraham and his seed Israel more than 4,000 years ago. It was written very clearly in the Torah, the most holy book, that G-d gave to His people Israel in front of the eyes and the attention of all the nations in Genesis 15:18: “In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, To your seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates”.

President Bush, you should know that G–d gave the Land of Israel to His people Israel not accidentally but for a purpose. This is a unique case in the history of all the nations that G–d, the Creator of the universe and the owner of all the countries created a nation, Israel, and gave them a Land and called the Land and the nation Israel in His own Name. This is a covenant with G–d, Israel and the holy Land that He gave them to dwell together with them there and to fulfill an eternal mission to all the world and mankind: “Now therefore, if you will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then you shall be my own treasure among all peoples; for all the earth is mine; And you shall be to me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. These are the words which you shall speak to the people of Israel” (Exodus 19:5&6).

You should know especially now when Prime Minister Olmert is coming to you to ask your support to divide the Land of Israel that G–d will never accept it. It is an evil in His eyes and He warned again and again His people Israel and all the nations to never divide the Land of Israel and that He will judge those who will divide His Land given only to Israel. This warning is even more actual today in a time when G–d is rebuilding His Kingdom together with His people Israel in the holy Land. Please read what G–d said to the prophet Joel: “For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring back the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will enter into judgment with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and have divided my land” (Joel 4:1&2).

This warning is directed not only to you, President Bush, but to Prime Minister Olmert as well. Mr. Olmert is coming to you to ask your permission for a terrible and a sinful plan, which is a clear revolt against the G–d of Israel and His Word, to divide the Land of Israel, Jerusalem and to expel tens of thousands of Israelis from the most holy biblical areas of the Land of Israel in Judea and Samaria. Just a few months ago ten thousands of Israeli were expelled from another holy area of Israel in the Gaza Strip. According to his sinful plan, the intention of Mr. Olmert, is to found a foreign, evil and terror so called “palestinian” state in Judea, Samaria and Gaza where the twelve tribes of Israel lived thousands of years ago in the midst of the Land and the Kingdom of Israel. A so called “palestinian” state and “nation” never existed in the Land of Israel nor in any other place in the world. They are just arabs that invaded the Land of Israel in the early 20th century as a reaction of the Islamic world against the regathering of the Jewish people back to their own historical and godly covenant Land. The return of the Jewish people to their historical and godly Land is fulfillment of prophesy and one of the major godly events which has happened in the life of mankind. Since this time the so called “palestinians” and arab nations have tried again and again to stop the Redemptional godly event in Israel and to destroy the State of Israel.

President Bush, you represent a nation that loves Israel. Please do not accept or support these anti-godly plans of Prime Minister Olmert and don’t bring the American nation and yourself under the judgement of G–d which is soon to come not only on an Israeli Prime Minister who created and wishes to fulfill such an evil plan but maybe especially on you if you support and encourage such a plan. The United States of America was created more than 200 years ago not to be against the G-d and the people of Israel but to stand with and support Israel in her struggle to reestablish the Kingdom of the G-d and the people of Israel in the holy Land of Israel. It is the G–d of Israel Himself that pushed down your popularity among your own people after you created another plan to divide the Land of Israel by the so called “Road Map”. There is only one Road Map. This is the Road Map which G–d gave to Abraham and to his seed Israel more than 4,000 years ago when He sent him to the Land of Israel, the Land that you (President Bush) want to divide now together with Prime Minister Olmert. Please read the Word of G-d and it will save you from mistakes:

“And the Lord had said to Abram, Get out from your country, and from your family, and from your father's house, to a land that I will show you; And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing; And I will bless those who bless you, and curse him who curses you; and in you shall all families of the earth be blessed. And Abram passed through the land to the place of Shechem, to the terebinth of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land. And the Lord appeared to Abram, and said, To your seed will I give this land; and there he built an altar to the Lord, who appeared to him” (Genesis 12: 1-3, 6 & 7)

President Bush, please obey the Word of the G-d of Israel and the universe as it appears above. Immediately cancel your anti-godly “Road Map” and your plans to divide the Land of Israel and to establish an evil, anti-gody so called “palestinian” state in the midst of the Land of the G–d and the people of Israel. When Mr. Olmert comes to you please reject him and his anti-godly plans and tell him to return immediately to Jerusalem and to ask permission not from you but from the real Leader of all the world who dwells in Jerusalem, the Almighty G–d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Surely He will reject such an evil and anti-godly plan. He will teach him His real Road Map through the covenant that He made with the people and the Land of Israel.

President Bush, G-d promised to bless those who will bless Israel and will curse those who curse Israel. Please obey this Word of G–d and bless Israel so that you and your nation will be blessed. You and Prime Minister Olmert still have an opportunity from G–d to cancel all of these anti-godly plans. Please share this with Mr. Olmert and do not miss this opportunity. Do not be influenced by the materialistic interests of oil, money and power. These has no meaning in the eyes of G–d. Great empires that came against Israel disappeared from the platform of history under the judgement of G-d. Please don’t bring your wonderful country and nation under the judgement and the anger of G–d. Please remember always that only Jerusalem was chosen by G–d to be the Eternal Capital of Himself and His people Israel. And only from Jerusalem as their capital will go out the Word of G–d and His Redemption to the nations and to all the world. And this is the holy place where Prime Minister Olmert should go and ask permission from G–d and not to Washington, D.C. from you.

In the midst of Jerusalem dwells a hill called by G–d Mount Moriah. This is the Temple Mount that G–d chose for Himself and for His people to dwell there. G–d’s Temple was destroyed twice by evil powers, very similar to the Islamic and so called “palestinian” evil powers that still continue to desecrate the hill of G–d in Jerusalem. Their presence together with their pagan shrines represent imperialistic foreign occupation of Jerusalem and the Land of Israel. They are doing everything today by evil and terror ways to stop the Redemption of the Temple Mount and the people and the Land of Israel. You should know that the return of the G–d of Israel to His holy mountain in Jerusalem will not only complete the Redemptional godly event of Israel but will also start the Redemption of all the world and nations.
The Islamic terror war today is not only against Israel but against the Christian world, especially America, whose roots go back to the people and the Land of Israel. This evil will not stop with September 11th. Their goal is to destroy Israel first and then to continue with all the western world, especially America. All the believers in the G–d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob all over the world are called to stand with Israel which is the only obstacle that will stop them from destroying all the western world and Islam dominating all the world.

Everyone should know that the destiny of all the world will be decided on the hill of G–d on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem because G-d dwells there. We are now living in the end-times and G–d expects His people Israel to rebuild His holy Temple on the Temple Mount and to remove the Islamic shrines that have desecrated the holy hill of G–d for such a long time. G–d desires to dwell again amongst His people Israel in His holy Temple and in the midst of all of His creation in Jerusalem. Unfortunately, the leadership of Israel doesn’t understand this. They fear the Islamic evil human being power and do not trust, hear and respect His call to His people Israel to rebuild His house .

“But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow to it. And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths; for Torah shall go forth from Zion, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. And he shall judge between many peoples, and shall decide concerning far away strong nations; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, nor shall they learn war any more. But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid; for the mouth of the Lord of hosts has spoken it” (Micah 4:1-4 and Isaiah 2:1-5)

President Bush, please also listen to this call of G–d and you and your people will have the privilege to be a part of it. A real godly peace and Redemption to all the world including America, which is needed now even more than at any time in the past, will come when this prophetic Word of G-d which is directed to our generation is fulfilled. The evil terror attack of Islam will be defeated and destroyed by the G–d of Israel as He promised by His prophets Ezekiel and Zechariah (Ezekiel 38&39; Zechariah 12&14).

President Bush, please don’t miss the major opportunity that G–d gave you to obey His Word and to be a great President of the United States and to open a major godly, moral and valuable time for your nation and all the world. Thousands of years ago G–d gave such an opportunity to another leader of a great empire, Cyrus the King of the Persian Empire and he obeyed the call of G–d to him to redeem the people and the Land of Israel from exile and to rebuild His Temple in Jerusalem. He answered this call with a great excitement and G–d blessed him and called Him my messiah. Please pay attention to following Word of G–d to Cyrus. It could be the Word to you as well. Just don’t miss the opportunity that G–d is giving you:

“Who says of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure; and saying to Jerusalem, You shall be rebuilt; and to the temple, Your foundation shall be laid. Thus says the Lord to his messiah, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have held, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him doors and gates; and the gates shall not be closed; I will go before you, and make the hilly places level; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze, and cut in sunder the bars of iron; And I will give you the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the Lord, who call you by your name, am the God of Israel. For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel my elect, I have called you by your name; I have surnamed you, though you have not known me. I am the Lord, and there is no one else, there is no God beside me; I girded you, though you have not known me; That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is no one else. I form the light, and create darkness; I make peace, and create evil; I the Lord do all these things” (Isaiah 44;28 -45:1-7)

President Bush, you were elected by G–d to be the President of the United States and to fulfill the same task of Cyrus at this critical time in the history of the Redemption of Israel which will open the door for the Redemption of all the world. Unfortunately, you missed it by such anti-godly plan like the “Road Map”and supporting anti-godly plans like the disengagement and now the plan that Prime Minister Olmert is coming to you with. The G–d of Israel is still giving you the opportunity to return to Him, to His real Road Map with Abraham and his seed Israel, and to have an important part in the Redemption of the people and the Land of Israel. Send Prime Minister Olmert back to put all his efforts on the rebuilding of the Land of Israel, Jerusalem and the Temple of G-d on the Temple Mount and to resettle the children of Israel in Judea, Samaria, Gaza and all over the Land that G-d gave to His people Israel and to fulfill His expectations at this critical time of Redemption as He shared them with His prophet Amos:

“Behold, the days come, says the Lord, when the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him who sows seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt. And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall rebuild the ruined cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink their wine; they shall also make gardens, and eat their fruit. And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be plucked up out of their land which I have given them, says the Lord your God” (Amos 9:13-15)

President Bush, don’t miss this opportunity!

Temple Mount Faithful "Jerusalem Day" March

The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement

The “Jerusalem Day” March From Ammunition Hill to the Old City of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount by The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement on 27 Iyar 5766/25 May 2006

Please join us on “Jerusalem Day”, the day that memorializes the liberation of the Temple Mount and Jerusalem, the City of David, The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement will march from Ammunition Hill to the Old City of Jerusalem and to the Temple Mount. We chose this route because this is the way that the heroic Israeli soldiers in the Six Day War in 1967 made on their way from the “Ammunition Hill” to liberate the Temple Mount and the Biblical Jerusalem. We shall start this march on the “Ammunition Hill” because on this hill one of the most heroic battles of the Israeli forces took place. Many of them fell in this battle. On their way to liberate Jerusalem they paid a heavy price when 200 Israeli soldiers fell and gave their lives for the liberation of the Temple Mount and Jerusalem. By sacrificing their lives they fulfilled, with the help of G–d, who fought together with them in these heroic battles, the greatest dream of the Jewish people and G–d Himself of almost 2,000 years since the Temple, the Temple Mount and Jerusalem were destroyed by the Romans in 70 C.E. and was taken from the Jewish people for a long, long time. It was an exciting fulfillment of all the comfort prophesies of the prophets of Israel.

The march of The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement will have a special significance on this day. We shall call by this march and the demonstration which will be undertaken at the Plaza of the Jaffa Gate of the Old City on the Israeli Government and the people of Israel not to loose the historical gift that G-d gave us and to immediately save the Temple Mount from Arab control, to immediately stop the destruction and the desecration of the remains of the First and Second Temple by the Arabs on the Temple Mount and to rebuilt the Temple as G–d expected Israel to do when He returned the Temple Mount and Jerusalem to them in the Six Day War.

We shall also demonstrate against the plans of Prime Minister Olmert to divide the land, to evacuate Israeli holy settlements in Judea and Samaria and to found a so called foreign “Palestinian” state of terror in the holy land that was given by G–d only to His people Israel in an eternal covenant forever.

This march will take place on “Jerusalem Day”, Thursday 27 Iyar 5766/ May 25, 2006 at 9:30 a.m. We shall meet at this time at the Ammunition Hill in Jerusalem which is located near Shderot Eshcol (Eshcol Avenue) among the trees which are near the parking area immediately after the main entrance to Ammunition Hill. You can use buses #28, 25 (these start at the Central Bus Station in Jerusalem), 4 or 9.

Everyone is called to come to this important godly march and to have an important part in the main significant event of the “Jerusalem Day”. We will wait for you at the Ammunition Hill!!!!

With the G–d of Israel’s blessings for the redemption of His hill, Jerusalem and the land of Israel.

The Second Passover: A Second Chance

The Second Passover: A Second Chance

Iyyar 11, 5766/May 9, 2006

Passover is a holiday for the entire nation of Israel: men, women, and children, rich and poor, without exceptions. G-d's instructions require everyone to participate. In fact, the requirement to make the Passover offering in the Temple courtyard on the appointed time, (the 14th day of Nissan), is so great that the result of willfully neglecting to do so is caret - the cutting off of the individual from the source of life. So what happens in the case of an individual who is simply unable to bring the offering in time? Who was prevented by circumstances beyond his control? Certain individuals asked this question of Moses in the desert, concerning the very first Pesach that would take place outside of Egypt, at the outset of the second year in the wilderness. The Torah records the exchange:

"There were, however, some men who had come in contact with the dead, and were therefore ritually unclean, so that they could not prepare the Passover offering on that day. During the course of that day, they approached Moses and Aaron. 'We are ritually unclean as a result of contact with the dead,' the men said to [Moses]. 'But why should we lose out and not be able to present God's offering at the right time, along with the other Israelites?' 'Wait here,' replied Moses. 'I will hear what orders God gives regarding your case.' God spoke to Moses, telling him to speak to the Israelites, saying: If any person is ritually unclean from contact with the dead, or is on a distant journey, whether among you [now] or in future generations, he shall still have the opportunity to prepare God's Passover offering. He shall prepare it on the afternoon of the 14th of the second month, and shall eat it with matzahs and bitter herbs. He shall not leave any of it over until morning, and not break any bone in it. He shall thus prepare it according to all the rules of the [regular] Passover offering. However, if a man is ritually clean, and not on a distant journey, and he neglects to prepare the Passover offering, that person shall be cut off [spiritually] from his people. He shall bear his guilt for not offering God's sacrifice at the prescribed time." (Numbers 9:6-13)

Simply put, if a person was prevented from bringing the Passover offering on the 14th of Nissan by events beyond his control, he is given a second chance. Yet the Torah does not make allowances for second chances concerning the other Divine commandments. Why now? Can it be that the Master of the Universe, the Holy One, blessed be He, makes exceptions? Of course He does. In fact, each and every one of us is exceptional in G-d's eyes. And as G-d sees us, so should we see ourselves.

One year earlier, on the fourteenth day of the month of Iyyar, (second Passover), the evil Amalek, may his name be blotted from our memory, saw this as well. This was the very day that evil nation chose to attack the people of Israel. And who did they choose to attack? The weak, the weary, the stragglers behind. Those who had begun to question whether they had it in them; whether they had what it takes to be a free people. For Amalek's plan was to embitter our lives with self-doubt, to slam the door shut on second chances. And what better moment to try and plunge us into gnawing doubt than on this day, the day of "second chances." Amalek saw that the only way to banish the presence of G-d from this world was to make people feel unworthy and incapable of drawing close to Hashem, through the fulfilling of His mitzvot. For if we deem ourselves as failures, as has-beens, we have lost the battle.

So Moses raised his arms heavenward, and the children of Israel thought of their Father in heaven, their spirits were renewed, and the tide of battle was turned. But the struggle against Amalek could not have been won, if G-d Himself hadn't also "upped the ante": G-d declared that on this very day the children of Israel would celebrate their national "second chance" day. For in the knowledge that we are deserving of a second chance to overcome our limitations, our shortcomings, be they self-inflicted or imposed upon us by circumstances beyond our control, we gain the strength to win the day. For we are all exceptional, and all deserving of a second chance.

It is this same battle against the Amalek of self-doubt that is being waged today in Israel, and nowhere is this more clearly visible than on the small parcel of land known as Mount Moriah: the Temple Mount. Are we worthy of a second chance, or not? Our prophets say so. Our sages say so. What do we say? Who are we listening to? To the Master of the Universe, or to the fast-talking salesmen of self-doubt, the Amaleks among us?

Tune in to this week's Temple Talk, as Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven discuss Pesach Sheni - the Second Passover, and the battle against giving up on second chances. Hear Rabbi Chaim Richman muse on his upcoming trip to the Temple Mount with ten young yeshiva students. And hear the inspiring thoughts of a G-d fearing Gentile from Budapest, Hungary, who has taken upon himself the task of translating the Temple Institute's website into his native language, Hungarian.

The Third Temple on the Temple Mount

John 4:20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
John 4:21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
John 4:22 Ye worship ye know not what: WE know what WE worship: for salvation is of the Jews.

Yes, the Gentile Samaritan woman, like many today trapped in a Gentilized "Christianity," have their idolatrous traditions and don't know who or what they're worshipping. However, the Jews in Jesus' day knew that the Word of God did command to worship in Jerusalem as a nation on the biblical festivals, but that individually we are free to worship God anywhere, but the Temple Mount and imminent Third Temple are extra special, for Yeshua even spoke of "the most holy place" prophetically being defiled by Europe's wannabe divine emperor - making a distinction some presently fail to recognize or agree with. I hope and pray such a situation changes, because the Word and Will of God is also expressed through the Prophet Isaiah who reveals the whole world will recognize Jerusalem, the Temple Mount and the Temple as the "most holy place" to learn and worship God (while spiritual Gentiles remain willfully blind to this fact and resist it and suffer the consequences for it as Zechariah warns):

Isaiah 2:1-4

1 The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
2 Now it shall come to pass in the latter days
That the [Temple] mountain of the LORD’s house
Shall be established on the top of the mountains,
And shall be exalted above the hills;
And all nations shall flow to it.
3 Many people shall come and say,

“ Come, and let us go up to the [Temple] mountain of the LORD,
To the house of the God of Jacob;
He will teach us His ways,
And we shall walk in His paths.”
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

4 He shall judge between the nations,
And rebuke many people;
They shall beat their swords into plowshares,
And their spears into pruning hooks;
Nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
Neither shall they learn war anymore.

Real Christians recognize Jerusalem's importance

The worship in Jerusalem is not a point of contention among those who wait for the return of the Christ.

You must have never read the Book of Acts and noticed how many apostles were arrested upon the Temple Mount for exercising their God-given freedom of religion, or how Paul exercised his rights as a Roman citizen.

Let the Jews and Muslims contend for rocks.

Mere "rocks" to those without spiritual discernment, Holy Land to those who are learning to think like our transcendent God. Read and believe the Bible and repent of such a self-righteous attitude, since Yeshua is returning to liberate such "rocks" and restore true worship upon the Temple Mount that God has ordained. Christians praying for the return of Christ actively intercede for Jerusalem (Isa. 62:1-2) and witness against the nations that the God of Israel is supreme, and the pagan mosques that pollute the Temple Mount will soon be history, according to the Word and Will of God.

Psalm 102:13-16

13 You will arise and have mercy on Zion;
For the time to favor her,
Yes, the set time, has come.
14 For Your servants take pleasure in her stones,
And show favor to her dust.

15 So the nations shall fear the name of the LORD,
And all the kings of the earth Your glory.
16 For the LORD shall build up Zion;
He shall appear in His glory.

The Temple Institute: Counting Our Days

"This is the day which the L-rd has made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it."
Psalms 118:24

(from the Hallel prayer to be recited on Yom Ha'atzma'ut)

Sefirat HaOmer: counting our days, telling our stories. Many of the commandments we receive in the Torah and many events related by the Torah involve the act of counting. An example is the past week's Torah reading, Tazriya, in which the new mother is bidden to count her days. Why is the Torah so taken with numbers? A clue can be found in the Hebrew word for counting: saper. It shares the same grammatical root as the word sepor, to tell, and the word for story, sippur.

By counting our days we are really taking stock. And by keeping a mental ledger, we are, in fact, telling our own story: the story of our days. But when does our story begin? Way back in our mother's womb. And where? In the Torah itself. For each of our souls has its ultimate source in the Torah: the blueprint through which G-d formed us. By counting and accounting for our days, we are revealing to ourselves who we are, or at least, who we are meant to be. By using the forty nine days of the Sefirat HaOmer to take stock and work on self improvement, we are writing our own story, one in which we will climb just as high as we can take ourselves. And how high is that? Our sages tell us that our souls have their source in the heavenly sapphire described in Exodus 24:10: "And they saw the God of Israel; and there was under His feet a kind of paved work of sapphire stone, and as it were the very heaven for pureness." The heavenly sapphire, (sapir, in Hebrew), marks our source. But our potential, indeed, is even greater. For our sages continue to tell us that our soul's ultimate destiny is to be found not beneath the throne of heaven, but opposite it. It is simple up to us to "number our days" and strive to be the person G-d intended us to be.

Yom Ha'atzma'ut - Israel Independence Day is tomorrow. Many of us, disillusioned and disappointed by this past summer's self-imposed expulsion and destruction of the thriving communities of Gush Katif and the northern Shomron, are questioning how to mark the day this year. Some ask if we should continue to recognize the day as having spiritual significance. Should we continue, they ask, to recite the Hallel prayer of thanks to Hashem for the miracles he has wrought for us and for the benevolence He has shown us on this day? Perhaps it would do well to recall our own retelling of the Haggada narrative less than three weeks ago, in which the wicked son asks: "What do you mean by this service?" The Haggada instructs us that "By saying you and not including himself as well, he takes himself out of the collective body of the people, and thus denies a basic principle of faith."

"Therefore you, too, must 'set his teeth on edge' and tell him: 'All this is because that which Hashem did for me when I came forth out of Egypt,' for if he had been there, he would not have been redeemed!" Yes, we have been burdened with wicked leaders who by their own deeds certainly do not merit the redemption that G-d has granted us. But the modern state of Israel wasn't G-d's gift to them. It was, and remains, G-d's gift to us all, for we, and not they, are the people of Israel. Heaven forbid we should be embittered toward G-d for the failures of our leaders, which in no small measure are a reflection of our own failures. Perhaps Yom Ha'atzma'ut should be for us a day of stock-taking and recommitment to our own part in the historic role of our people.

Jewish destiny in the land of Israel continues to unfold. The ingathering of the exiles, and the resurgence of vibrant Jewish communities in the land, and the widespread dissemination of Torah knowledge have helped to precipitate an even wider phenomena: the global spiritual awakening of Righteous Gentiles who want to live their lives in the light of the Torah of Israel. Not since two millennia, since the destruction of the Second Temple, have there been so many G-d fearing people the world over crying out for Torah instruction. The recently reestablished developing Sanhedrin in Jerusalem is reaching out to assist this worldwide community.

To learn more about Sefirat haOmer, Yom Ha'atzma'ut, and the concept of Torah observance for Gentiles, listen to this week's Temple Talk, with Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven.

Israel Independence Day: Yom Ha'Atzmaut

Beit El´s Rabbi: Independence Day - A Day for Expressing Joy
18:15 May 02, '06 / 4 Iyar 5766
by Hillel Fendel

Rabbi Zalman Melamed - Rabbi of Beit El and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Arutz Sheva - delivers a message of happiness for the upcoming Independence Day, despite the State's shortcomings.

Israel's Independence Day is generally celebrated as a joyous religious holiday of thanksgiving in yeshivot and synagogues around the country and the world. Rabbi Melamed [pictured above], one of the leading rabbis in the national-religious public, was asked if our joy should be lessened this year because of the government's destruction of the Jewish communities in Gush Katif. His response was published in the Kumi Ori pamphlet of the Komemiyut organization. Excerpts:

"Our teacher and rabbi, Rav Tzvi Yehuda HaCohen Kook, taught us to distinguish between the government and the State. The establishment of the State opened the gates of the Land of Israel - leading to the Ingathering of the Exiles, the return of the Torah center to the Land, the expansion and stabilization of settlement in the Land of Israel, and continued Aliyah (immigration). All this is because we have a state. There are restrictions here and there, and there are places where we have to struggle, but in general, our bonds with the Land of Israel continue to get stronger. The Land is being built up in the Galilee and the Negev, the Sharon and the Shomron, and elsewhere. All this is a result of our independence.

"We are therefore obligated to thank the Master of the Universe for the good He has bestowed upon us, and for releasing us from the yoke of the nations and enabling us to open the gates of our Land to great Aliyah, and to build ourselves without being influenced by the nations abroad. The percentage of assimilation in the Diaspora is simply catastrophic. This means that our very presence together in the Land of Israel helps strengthen our spiritual status.

"We have criticism of the government's actions, at which we are very angry, and it is hard to simply pass over them. We are also angry, to some extent, at the army and police which carried out this terrible and criminal expulsion of Jews from Gush Katif. But the very existence of the State is a Divine gift on our way to our Redemption, and we have to thank G-d and rejoice in this. "

Asked his opinion about the late Rabbi Shaul Yisraeli's post-Oslo proposal to add a black ribbon to the Israeli flag, Rabbi Melamed said:

"I don't like sadness. I like being happy. I see every difficulty as being a challenge to greater advancement. I understand the feeling, and the fact is that a great rabbi did this during the Oslo period. As for me, I don't have a tendency to express my sadness on this day, but rather the joy and my feeling of thanks to Hashem for His goodness. We have enough sorrow, maybe too much. We have to see the good and the positive, and to view hardships as challenges that will bring only good.

"There is no doubt that even the Gush Katif crisis will strengthen us and our hold on the Land of Israel. We don't see this now, but the good will most certainly come. I like Rabbi Akiva's viewpoint, who smiled when he saw the Roman destruction of Jerusalem - for he knew that out of the destruction would sprout Redemption."

Rabbi Melamed said he understands the negative feelings that come to the fore on this day, but "we don't mourn for the Temple during the Passover seder, and we don't celebrate the Exodus from Egypt on the fast of Tisha B'Av. There is a time for everything, and today is a time for celebration and thanks."

Israelis, Jews and Christian-Zionists worldwide ought to give thanks to God for fulfilling His promises to restore Judah first to our ancient Jewish homeland, the Promised Land of Israel, to be followed in God's good time by the "Lost Ten Tribes."

May all love Eretz Yisrael, the Land of Israel, so much that other than mere lip service, may the same Israelis, Jews and Christian-Zionists offer their lives as living sacrifices of praise, by confessing and forsaking those personal and national sins that we are warned will lead to foreign occupation of the Holy Land again that Israel may remain free to change, to live and prosper and to fulfill its Manifest Destiny to become a "light to all nations," so help us God.

Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall offers the GOOD NEWS that Israel doesn't have to get stomped by the EU jackboot if we have a change of heart and direction. May we celebrate this fact and express our independence from the ways of this world, Egypt, to be free to serve the God of Israel and uphold His constitution: the holy Bible.
