God is with the Jews!
concerning the love affair of Christians with the modern-day state of Israel
... consider that Israel has hundreds of nukes and is ready to use them if she is threatened ...
Just how many of your righteous Jew friends believe in Jesus?
Herbert Armstrong was a godly man but he never advocated subservience to the modern state of Israel like you are implying.
you are of the John Hagee type.
And stop claiming that anyone who criticizes Israel is a "Jew Hater"
Excerpts fromby Ezra HaLevi
"Jerusalem should not be up for negotiation," Chief Sephardi Rabbi Shlomo Amar declared, joining a similar statement a day earlier made by his Ashkenazi counterpart Rabbi Yonah Metzger. "The Temple Mount is the heart and soul of the Land of Israel and there is no Jewish unity without the unity of the Land of Israel."
Jerusalem Without the Holy Temple is Not Jerusalem
Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, the founder of the Temple Institute in Jerusalem spoke about his experience being part of Motta Gur’s Paratrooper unit that liberated the Temple Mount. "Once we liberated the area, I saw the Prime Minister, the president and all sorts of dignitaries entering the Temple Mount. But where did they head? To the Kotel [the Western Wall of the Temple Mount –ed.]. We arrive at the Temple Mount after 2,000 years – and where did we go? And the Torah world was fully complicit in this – it was not just Moshe Dayan and the government. Humiliation. Complete humiliation.
"There is no Jerusalem without the Holy Temple," he proclaimed. "I have been sitting here for two hours and heave heard about housing and demographics and even the Jewish Quarter – but nothing about the Holy Temple, which is inextricably the whole essence of Jerusalem. It is impossible to speak about Jerusalem without mentioning even once the Holy Temple.
"Every generation at least implemented to the best of their ability what they prayed for. Our generation simply runs away from it. We talk about the Temple Mount, but not building the Holy Temple."
**********Humiliation: secular Jewish leaders stop at a wall rather than continue to go up to the Temple Mount.
A House of Prayer For All Peoples?
Jewish guards prevent Christians and Jews from exercising their religious right to pray on the Temple Mount? That's right! Only Muslims have unlimited access to Judaism's most holy site. Only the Koran is permitted within. The Tanach (Jewish Scripture, known to much of the world as the "Old Testament") and Christian Scriptures (the New Testament) are forbidden. Yet Israel claims to respect the religious rights of all people.
Major Upheaval in Israel?
Will an EARTHQUAKE shake Israel to its foundations and rock the world? Would the destruction of the Western/Wailing Wall and the demolition of the "Dome of the Rock" and Al-Aksa mosques—by an ACT OF GOD—serve further notice that it's time to build the Temple?
Third Temple Coming Soon to Jerusalem!
"And let them make me a Sanctuary that I may dwell among them" (Ex. 25:8). This holy command in the Scriptures seems clear enough, so what's the problem? Why has Israel tolerated Jerusalem’s "abomination of desolation" — a Temple Mount without a Temple? Why haven't the religious leaders encouraged the people to do what they can in fulfilling this mitzva?
The Temple of God in Holy Jerusalem
Paul, speaking of the imminent Third Temple, the holy TEMPLE OF GOD (the Temple of God - not just of the Jews or any other conspiracy theory that contradicts Scripture), that Europe's wannabe divine emperor will pollute, coveting it since Satan knows (even if some religious folks don't) it is the TEMPLE OF GOD...
Jews Must Demand Rights to Temple Mount
During a 1995 Root and Branch lecture in Jerusalem, Professor Nahum Rakover, author and then Deputy Attorney General of Israel, publicly agreed with me that it isn't illegal for Christians or Jews to pray upon the Temple Mount, even though it is forcibly prevented by the police.
Restore Israeli Sovereignty Over Temple Mount
The Wakf, the militant Muslim authority that oversees Jerusalem's Temple Mount, Judaism's holiest site and Islam's alleged third holiest site (following Mecca and Medina) continue to show blatant disregard for Jewish, Christian and biblical history and non-Muslim sensitivities.
Where's the Temple On the Temple Mount?
Something's missing. Rome is synonymous with the Vatican, Mecca with the Kaaba, and Jerusalem's known for its Western Wall. But why should we stand before the wall, letting it obstruct our vision, when we could be praying in a Temple? Why should Jews continue to bow before an illegitimate Gentile decree that tells them where to pray? (Isaiah 10:1).
The Vatican Must Return the Temple Treasures
The Jews have prayed for 2,000 years to again see the Temple upon the Temple Mount. It's past time for prayers alone: ACTION is necessary to put faith into practice!
G-d Doesn't Listen to Jewish Prayers at the Western Wall
Gershon Salomon warned Israel and its leadership that as long as the shameful situation on the Temple Mount continues, and as long as they do not obey the call of G-d, peace will not come to the land. The enemies of Israel will continue to desire her land and will pressure those in power to divide it. Obedience to the call of G-d will bring peace, all of Israel's enemies will be removed and no one will wish to divide or desire the land.
Why Edward Abington, Jr. Must Be Investigated!
"The American Diplomat in Arafat's Corner," published in The Jerusalem Report, came as no surprise to me. It was referring to Edward Abington, Jr., the United States' former consul general in Jerusalem who is now "guiding the Palestinians through the labyrinths of Washington. And his firm is being paid $2.25 million for his expertise."
Israel's Unjust Deportation of David Ben-Ariel
As a Christian-American member of the Temple Mount Faithful Movement, I had been privileged to participate in their legal demonstrations during my 10-month stay in Jerusalem awaiting dual citizenship. Israeli television often showed me with my Jewish friends carrying Israeli flags throughout the Old City.
Blow Up the Mosques or An Expired Visa?
Once again, an attempt to spread DISinformation about my unjust deportation from Israel, only provides me with another opportunity to clearly state my case and continue to highlight the plight of the Temple Mount suffering under a Nazi-Muslim occupation...
From Toledo to Jerusalem
You could say I have a God-given love for the Jews and the nation of Israel (Isaiah 62:6-7). That sacred bond has been strengthened over the years by the fact that I've been blessed to have lived all over Israel, getting to know its land and people quite well.
During my brief appearance before Israel's High Court, the prosecution charged that I hold "dangerous ideas." I suppose the short-sighted prosecution would ban the Bible if he could since it contains the "dangerous ideas" that millions believe in! What are those "dangerous ideas?"
American Detained in Jerusalem's Russian Compound
Nobody arrested me. I was detained when I faithfully reported to the police office at 9 a.m. Monday morning, January 9, 1996 (day before my birthday) the day after The Jerusalem Post published on their front page an article shedding light on what they were doing in the dark: "GSS Seeks to Deport American Citizen for Plot to Blow Up Al Aksa Mosque."
You're NOT Jewish, WHAT made you think you could become an Israeli citizen??
Rather ironic, since Jews played such a pivitol role in bringing the ANC thugs into power.
Yes, it's disgusting how a disproportionate amount of LIBERAL and godless and self-righteous Jews were instrumental in the destruction of South Africa by dismantling apartheid (where every race and religion prospered compared to now), just like the same sick souls (with their British-Israelite, self-hating white, counterparts) are bent on the destruction of our White Israelite countries and the Jewish Homeland too.
Jews should follow Judaism to Israel, plain and simple, and end their self-imposed exile. Yet they'll blather, "NEXT year in Jerusalem.." - it's always NEXT year, isn't it?
God has everything to do with Zionism!
Zionism has nothing to do with God ....
It is a purely political movement invented and used by men to achieve a political goal i.e., the establishment of modern Israel.
It has nothing to do with fulfilling prophecy ...
the secular (atheistic) Jews made a deal with the religious Jews .... let us run the affairs of state and we will allow you to run the religious part.
God does not operate like this ... read your Bible.
Yitzhak Rabin: I met Yitzhak Rabin in the Israeli Parliament in 1982 during Hanukkah. I was able to talk with him briefly and mention I was associated with Ambassador College in Pasadena, California. That was a tactful way of saying I'm a Christian since Rabin had met and received a gift of Steuben crystal from Herbert W. Armstrong of the Worldwide Church of God.
I was a volunteer at Kibbutz Ramat Yohanan at the time, in Northern Israel near Haifa. Rabin informed me that he had lived there for over a year in the late '50s and inquired about various individuals.

International Christian Embassy
starts drive to ensure rights to territories
by Liat Collins
The International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem is beginning an international campaign to ensure Christian rights after IDF (Israeli Defence Forces) withdrawal from the territories.
On Sunday, some 1,200 Christians carrying banners proclaiming "Bethlehem will be Jewish Forever," attended a solidarity and prayer rally at Rachel's Tomb.
International Christian Embassy spokesman Jan van der Hoeven stressed the need to keep Bethlehem open to all faiths and spoke against the rise of Islamic extremism. He noted the growing number of Christian residents in Bethlehem who are asking the embassy's help in moving out of the city for fear of Moslem action against them once the IDF leaves.
The deadline for IDF evacuation has been brought forward to December 22.
Nearly all the participants at the rally were visiting for the International Christian Embassy's Feast of Tabernacles activities. Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, of Efrat, also addressed the crowd.
About 30 residents of Jerusalem's Gilo section attended the rally, noting the proximity between their neighborhood and Rachel's Tomb.
Yesterday, David Ben-Ariel, a Christian member of the Temple Mount Faithful, said he was harassed and detained by both Moslem Wakf guards and the police after he went up to the Mount to pray.
"It's not news that Jews can't pray there, even though everybody claims there is freedom for all faiths," he said. "But people don't realize that Christians can't pray there either," he said.
Ben-Ariel was wearing a shirt with the Temple Mount Faithful slogan on it at the time of his arrest.

The United States and Britain in Bible Prophecy
© 2001 United Church of God, an International Association
he prosperity of Britain and the United States in the 19th and 20th centuries fueled the popular belief that the British and American peoples are in fact the descendants of the lost 10 tribes. This movement came to be popularly known as British-Israelism.
In the United States, where the idea of "manifest destiny"-the belief that it was the nation's destiny to expand from shore to shore-was already firmly entrenched, advocates of British-Israelism promoted the biblical explanation for the nation's unexplained growth and prosperity. Britain and the United States, they concluded, were recipients of the unconditional birthright of Joseph.
In recent times some have associated British-Israelism with the modern negative connotations of imperialism. Critics even allege that those who embraced this reasoning were only seeking a salve for their conscience to justify their imperialist tendencies. Such accusation, however, is simply not in keeping with the thinking of the 19th century. Those who project today's political sensitivities on a past audience that viewed the world far differently are incorrect and unfair in their assessment.
In the mid-19th century British subjects did not perceive imperialism as negative. They viewed it as a magnanimous gesture-that they were extending the blessings that had made their nation great to less-fortunate peoples around the globe. Indeed the British Empire provided many blessings to the peoples who became part of the empire.
Another criticism-this one accurate-aimed at British-Israel advocates is that some of their proponents incorporated racism into their beliefs. Prejudicial racist views have tarnished their reasoning, thus discrediting the historical aspects of their teachings.
This is both regrettable and biblically unacceptable. Racial bigotry is most definitely not what the Bible teaches. God is not the author of such a point of view. He loves all people and commands us to do the same. The central issues we need to consider are whether many of the descendants of the 10 tribes of Israel reside in the British-descended nations today and, if so, what God expects of them.
Focusing on the biblical promises, some scholars have undertaken extensive research to advance the knowledge that God's promised blessings to Abraham's descendants have largely been fulfilled in the British and American peoples. Although many have contributed to the basic research, here are a few people who have made significant contributions to the advancement of this area of study.
John Wilson, Anglican layman from Cheltenham, England, published Our Israelitish Origin in 1840. This work was the first full-blown thesis connecting the Anglo-Saxons to ancient Israel. Wilson drew on the best of contemporary scholarship and methodology. He made particular use of the work of Sharon Turner (1768-1847), a monumental figure in British historiography whose multivolume work, The History of the Anglo-Saxons, traces the Anglo-Saxons back through Europe to the Balkan countries and ultimately to the Crimea and Caucasus Mountains-exactly what we would expect according to 2 Kings 17:6 and 1 Chronicles 5:26.
Israel National Radio’s Rabbi Chaim Richman, who heads the Temple Institute, has released a first-of-its-kind video that allows every Jew to experience a tour of the Temple Mount.
Due to disagreements over the location of the area of the Holy Temple forbidden to be tread upon and, to a large extent, political and ideological factors, many Jews refrain from visiting the Temple Mount. Rabbi Richman’s video tour, filmed on the Mount in strict adherence with Jewish laws governing the ascent of Mt. Moriah in our time, has now been made available free of charge via the Internet in the hopes of providing all Jews with a connection to Judaism's holiest site.
The video gives a deep historical perspective on each part of the Temple Mount, beginning with an introduction regarding the various opinions as to where the Temple was located and which areas are permitted to visit today.
“The idea is that we are motivated to get as close as we can to the holiest place on earth,” Rabbi Richman says, “to be seen by G-d, to be seen by the Jewish people and even to be seen by our enemies – to let them know we have not forgotten about our Holy Temple.”
The Rabbi says he chose to take the simplest route, sticking to the outer perimeter of the mount added by King Herod when he expanded the platform. The video stylistically performs the approach to more controversial areas through the zoom lens. “We are not going to go as close as we can this morning,” Rabbi Richman explains on the video, “which is what I do when I bring someone here for the first time. On certain sides we can go much closer, but I do not want to give the wrong impression to any viewer who may become confident that he knows the permitted areas, comes here on his own and gets confused, entering a forbidden area.”
Filmed in 2005, a heavy police presence is apparent, with members of Israel’s police, as well as the Muslim Wakf religious trust keeping close supervision to make sure Rabbi Richman or his compatriots to not utter a prayer. “This is the one place on earth where, as a Jew, I am actually obligated to pray,” Rabbi Richman explains. “And it is the one place, where according to modern Israeli law, I am forbidden, as a Jew, from praying. One sees here how fearful the Muslims are of the power of Jewish prayer.”
In the part of the tour, the Rabbi expounds from an ancient Jewish text called the Tractate of Middot which is “the blueprint of the Temple.” He speaks about the Temple as though it were standing, painting a mental picture for the viewer and transporting them back in time to the Temple period, when on Jewish festivals Jewish pilgrims would flock en masse to the Mount.
Rabbi Richman says hundreds of thousands have already viewed the virtual tour. “There have been rabbis and community members whose rabbis are against visiting the Temple Mount that have gone up because of the video,” he says. “I have received letters from rabbis and others who are very intellectually honest. A very Hareidi rabbi told me that he was always under the impression that it was simply forbidden. But now, he said, “I saw and listened to you and then researched it for myself and realized the reasons for staying away are political.”
There remains staunch opposition to ascending the mount, though no religious authority has ever suggested that taking a virtual tour could be problematic. A placard at its entrance placed by the Chief Rabbinate says “Entrance to the Temple Mount for Jews is forbidden by Jewish law” and even senior national-religious Rabbi Shlomo Aviner of Beit El and the Ateret Kohanim Yeshiva in the Muslim Quarter has been a vocal opponent of a Jewish presence at the site. The virtual tour allows those who are uncomfortable with ascending the Mount to strengthen their connection with the site in a manner acceptable to them.
Rabbi Richman is optimistic. “Not only have more Jews been visiting the Temple Mount each day since this video was recorded, but we are truly living in a different generation now. There is a new awakening and a collective admission of fault for our abandonment of the Temple Mount.”
The rabbi cautiously reports that police have been much more cooperative and encouraging of groups, large and small, visiting the Temple Mount recently. “There are cynics who see it as just letting us ‘blow off steam’ as the government makes plans to abandon the Mount altogether, but I believe we are witnessing the recognition that the Jewish people are returning to the holiest place on earth and that is an insurmountable force.”
