Yom Atzma-ut - Israel Independence Day

"And he shall effect atonement upon the Holy from the defilements of the children of Israel and from their rebellions and all their unintentional sins. He shall do likewise to the Tent of Meeting, which dwells with them amidst their defilements."

(Leviticus 16:16)
Iyar 5, 5769/April 29, 2009
Yom Atzma-ut - Israel Independence Day
20th Day of the Omer

Today, the fifth day of Iyar, (April 29th), the nation of Israel marks its Independence Day - Yom Atzma-ut. As a sure sign that G-d's guiding hand is still at the helm, the day of the modern state of Israel's Independence Day falls squarely between the day marking the nascent nation's crossing of the Sea of Reeds, (seventh day of Passover, 3,500 years ago), and the nation's receiving of the Divine revelation of Torah at Mount Sinai, (Shavuot, forty three days later). This dramatic juxtaposition of historical events begs the question: What exactly is independence - atzma-ut?

Upon crossing the Sea of Reeds, the twelve tribes of Israel were escaping the bonds of their bitter exile, shedding their shackles of slavery to the whims and desires of foreign potentates and the strange ways of distant cultures, far from the teachings of their fathers. Yet this freedom was strictly physical in nature. The spiritual revolution required to free their souls, and not just their bodies, had not yet transpired. This would happen only at Sinai, where G-d and nation would meet, and the eternal Torah would be revealed to each and every man, woman, and child of the Israelites.

Precisely between these two point is where Israel dwells today. G-d has brought His people back to the land of Israel, and there they enjoy their physical freedom from the nations around them. But the children of Israel, an infant nation again in her own land, is still on its way to receiving the spiritual liberation of Torah and the true liberty that it bequeaths.

Many people today, Jews and Gentiles alike, express their disappointment that the nation of Israel that dwells today in the land of Israel, has not yet accepted upon itself the yoke of Torah in its entirety. Disappointment can lead to disgust and to rejection: "This people which dwells in the land of Israel, but does not always walk in the spirit of the Torah of Israel, what right have they to claim their independence from the nations?"

Scorners and cynics whose shortness of patience is equalled only by their shortness of vision, should bear in mind that the road from the Sea of Reeds to the mountain of Sinai also was a long journey fraught with both physical dangers and perilous swings in spiritual readiness and maturity. And those who would write off Israel as failing to make the grade, should pay special heed to the words of Leviticus 16:16: "And he shall effect atonement upon the Holy from the defilements of the children of Israel and from their rebellions and all their unintentional sins. He shall do likewise to the Tent of Meeting, which dwells with them amidst their defilements."

If the Creator of the universe, Himself, broadcasts so clearly and unequivocally, that He, in the Tent of Meeting, the place of the Shechinah - G-d's manifest presence on this earth, will dwell amongst His people, even amidst their failings, then who among us mortals would dare cast the fate of the nation of Israel to the four winds, citing her shortcomings and blemishes as evidence of her imminent demise?

Yom Atzma-ut in Israel todays manifests itself as a celebration of the very land of Israel, itself. It is a day in which the entire nation steps forth from their houses and gathers together, picnicking in the parks and fairgrounds, hiking along the mountain trails and in the valleys. In its own instinctual way, the nation engages in twenty-four hour reenactment of settling the land.

The day is coming, and it is not far, when the newly returned children of Israel will find themselves ready to fully re-embrace as a nation, the liberating promise of Torah from Sinai.

Tune in to this week's Temple Talk as Rabbi Richman and Yitzchak Reuven continue to reveal the tender relationship between G-d and His children, as set forth in the book of Leviticus. The Holy blessed one Himself coaxes both the pure and the impure to engage in uplifting their respective spiritual stations, as illustrated so poignantly by the individual who is afflicted with tzora'at, (a leprous like ailment), and is banished from the Israelite encampment until his cure is affected. G-d's tender concern for His children is evident even today, as the nation of Israel celebrates her independence back in the land of Israel.

Rabbi Chaim Richman will be speaking at a small number of locations throughout the state of Texas during the month of May. Click here for his schedule and contact information.

“You shall be holy like I am holy.” (Leviticus 19:2) How can we become holy as G-d is holy? Certainly, we are expected to live within the guidelines set out by Torah. Yet, to a certain extent a person can conduct himself as “a scoundrel with the permission of the Torah,” that is, live within the laws of Torah, but, nevertheless, lead a self-centered hedonistic life, never drawing nearer to G-d. But to make ourselves holy, we need to live responsibly and with commitment to G-d, even within the permitted parameters of Torah.

United States in Prophecy!



United States in Prophecy!
The United States is mentioned in the Bible! We're descendants from Joseph and are Joes. The Jews are from the tribe of Judah. We need to get away from counterfeit Christianity and back to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and keep His Sabbath and biblical holy days.

Beyond Babylon warns Jews and Israel

Israel already forfeited Temple Mount, divided Jerusalem
"The greatest threat, the one that magnifies all others exponentially, is that only a few in Israel or abroad are aware of the real extent of the dangers facing the Jewish country – both from within and without," writes Aaron Klein.

Beyond Babylon has warned many in Israel and abroad for years about Jerusalem's betrayal and rape, as The Jerusalem Post acknowledged when I was unjustly deported from Israel for exposing the German-Vatican plot against Jerusalem and highlighting the plight of the Temple Mount suffering under Nazi Muslim occupation (in an article first published in Jerusalem and read throughout Israel, and now the world).

Israeli stamps for pagan pope?

Israel launches special stamp series in honor of Pope's visit
By Haaretz Service

************

An Israeli stamp series to honor a man who represents the bloody Vatican that holds the Temple treasures and priceless Judaica hostage? Soetoro/Obama was wrong to bow before the Arab king, and Israel goes further and prostates themselves before the pope - another symptom of the serious sickness that afflicts the Jewish soul.

Soon the pagan pope will leave his mark on Israel and the German-Jesuit jackboot will stomp Jerusalem!

The one time The Traveller did run a political piece, it ruffled feathers with the local authorities.

To extremists, to those who are either woefully ignorant or remain in denial of the plain truth of the Bible and history I dare to share.

Dangerous Ideas?
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?"

Didn't Barry Chamish warn us?

Daisy Stern writes:
ALL the comprehensive agreement with the Vatican is already signed: what they have to sign on Thursday are only the finishing touches; what that tells me is that the contested Church properties have already been "returned" to the possession of the Catholic Church, just as the Russian Compound had been returned to Russia... - MASS DECEPTION PERPETRATED AGAINST JEWS BY THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT


Mount Zion in danger!

Just like Barry Chamish warned:

In my political writing infancy in 1994, I reported that Yossi Beilin has begun negotiations with the Russians to grant them sovereign ruling status in selected parts of Jerusalem. Well, this month the Israeli government turned some 20% of its capital's downtown over to Russian national control. And just like in '94, no one cares. Imagine turning 20% of Washington over to Russia. You can't do it, can you? Of course not. Only Israel creates a Russian Vatican in the heart of its national capital.

Back in '94, I reported that Shimon Peres had offered the Vatican sovereign control of all of East Jerusalem, including the holy sites of the situated religions and their branches. Now the pope is due to arrive in Jerusalem in May and Peres will be his official "escort." And with the Russian precedent in hand, The Vatican can legally demand the handover of "their" real estate and properties. Escort Peres may take the Holy See to the finest cafes, entertainment and for all we know, the classiest bordellos, but he won't be taking him to the Holocaust museum in Yad VaShem - THE
conPROMISED LAND

MASS DECEPTION

The Jews are permitting the pagan pope - a Babylonian envoy, a modern day Balaam - to pollute the Holy Land of Israel while the bloody Vatican holds the Temple treasures and Judaica hostage! The Israelis are inviting the German fox into the chicken coop!

Headway Made on Holy See-Israel Accords



Headway Made on Holy See-Israel Accords
Progress Intensifies Ahead of Papal Visit

JERUSALEM, APRIL 24, 2009 (Zenit.org).- Ahead of Benedict XVI's visit to the Holy Land, members of the Israel-Holy See Bilateral Permanent Working Commission report that "meaningful" progress is being made to conclude their agreements.

A working-level meeting of the commission met Thursday at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jerusalem to continue negotiations on the economic agreement regarding the fiscal system and Church properties.

"The meeting was characterized by great cordiality and a spirit of cooperation," stated a communiqué published jointly by the Holy See and Israel.

"Meaningful progress was achieved by receiving a report from a working group, and the delegations renewed their joint commitment to conclude the agreement as soon as possible," the note affirmed.

The commission will meet for a plenary session next Thursday at Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Since signing the Fundamental Agreement in 1993, which established diplomatic relations between the Holy See and Israel, the two sides have been negotiating the particulars of tax exemptions and property rights for the Church, in particular for the holy sites. Talks stopped altogether in 2003 for several years, and began again in 2005.

While the negotiations have nothing officially to do with Benedict XVI's visit to the Holy Land, which will take place May 8-15, sources in the Vatican explain that Israel is interested in the good image the Pope's visit can give to the nation, and the Church is interested in consolidating its presence in the Holy Land.

"Count for Yourselves"

"Count for Yourselves"
(Leviticus 23:12)Nissan 29, 5769/April 23, 2009
14th Day of the Omer
"You shall count for yourselves - from the day after the rest day (Passover), from the day when you bring the Omer of the waving - seven weeks, they shall be complete. Until the morrow of the seventh week you shall count, fifty days; and you shall offer a new meal offering to the L-rd." (ibid)

Busy work or a means toward self-improvement? G-d requires of His people many tasks, as described in Torah, some whose import is immediately evident, and others seemingly so mundane that at first glance we risk misreading their intent. This is certainly true of the commandment of sfirat ha Omer - the counting of the Omer. What can we possibly gain by tallying the forty-nine days of a seven week period? The assigment seems positively clerical in nature.

To begin to understand and reveal the hidden potential of sfirat ha Omer, we need to make note of some key words used by Torah to describe the mitzva: U-se-FAR-tem la-CHEM - "count for yourselves" - not for Me, but for yourselves, similar to G-d's words to Avraham - Lech le-CHA - "Go (for yourself)... to the land that I will show you," (Genesis 12:1), and later, "And He said: 'Take now your son, your only son, whom your love, even Yitzchak, and get (for yourself) into the land of Moriah." (Genesis 22:2) The expression, "for yourself," as used by Torah, announces a spiritual journey. The second clue can be seen in the word temimot - "complete," or "perfect" - referring to the period of seven weeks. The same word is used to describe Noach (Genesis 6:9), and Yaakov, (Genesis 25:27).

Yes, this task of sfirat ha Omer - the counting of the Omer - is a spiritual journey through which we can further refine and perfect ourselves and our relationships with our fellow man and with G-d. Little wonder, then, that the forty-nine day period of the counting of the Omer corresponds precisely with the forty-nine days that passed between the exodus from Egypt and the receiving of Torah on Mount Sinai. For the children of Israel also required a forty-nine day spiritual journey to ready themselves for the revelation at Sinai. And little wonder that the forty-nine day period of the counting of the Omer corresponds precisely with the day that marks the beginning of the barley harvest in the land of Israel and concludes with the offering of two loaves of leavened bread of wheat, in the Holy Temple, on the festival of Shavuot (the festival of the giving of Torah). Our sages describe the coarse barley kernels as being fit food for livestock, and the the baked loaves of leavened wheat as being the perfection of sustenance ready for human consumption.

From the first commandment received by the nation of Israel, the commandment to mark the new moon, the new month of Nissan, "the first of your months," (Exodus 12:2) G-d has imparted to His children the sacred nature of time. Torah understands time not as mechanical increments of seconds, minutes, and hours, but as an opportunity for refinement, spiritual honing and fine-tuning. Time itself can be made holy by how we spend it, and by making our time holy, we make ourselves holy. "Count for yourselves" - make yourself count, work on the coarse barley of your own nature, constantly refining it. Make yourself complete and pure through the proper use of time. The word of G-d, the Torah of Sinai, is waiting to be received. Let us perfect our selves, so that we will be worthy!

Tune in to this week's Temple Talk as Rabbi Richman and Yitzchak Reuven discuss the untimely and mysterious death of Aaron’s sons Nadav and Avihu; this week’s Torah readings concerning the laws of purity, and the counting of the Omer: making each moment “count,” shedding our negativity, and learning to focus on the real work of self-improvement and character development that are a necessity for receiving Torah.

This week features the latest Bat Melech video teaching with Rabbanit Rena Richman, entitled, "Miriam the Prophet, Part I: Third part of a series in which Rena explores and shares the great spiritual depths of the righteous women who protected the children of Israel from the evil decree of Pharaoh, and prepared them for their eventual exodus from bondage and emergence as a free people. Miriam was a women of prophetic vision, a teacher of her generation, whose unique ability was in channeling her love of G-d into creative outlets through which all the children of Israel can express themselves."

Today also features the new Light to the Nations teaching by Rabbi Chaim Richman, entitled, "Ten Levels of Sanctity: Introduction: On the surface, the land of Israel is just like any other land. But the land of Israel, the land chosen by G-d, is embued with inherent holiness. Within the land itself, there exist ten levels of increasing sanctity." Click here to view.

"The L-rd spoke to Moses, saying: 'Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: When you shall enter the Land that I give you, and reap its harvest, you shall bring an Omer from your first harvest to the priest. And he shall wave the Omer before the L-rd, to be accepted for you. On the day after the rest day, (the first day of Passover), the priest shall wave it. On the day you wave the Omer, you shall perform the service of an unblemished lamb as a burnt-offering before the L-rd. Its meal-offering shall be two tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil, a fire offering to the L-rd, a satisfying aroma; and its libation shall be wine, a quarter-hin. You shall not eat bread or roasted kernels or plump kernels until this very day, until you bring the offering of your G-d; it is an eternal decree for your generations in all your dwelling places."

Holocaust Hypocrisy!



Holocaust Hypocrisy!

The Jews are a small but important part of the big family of Jacob-Israel. There are Twelve Tribes of Israel. Hitler's Burnt Offering of Jews (Holocaust/Shoah) didn't occur until after they had been warned by secular and religious alike, by Jews and Gentiles, by Hitler's own words and the words of the Law and the Prophets. The Jewish Holocaust was only a type of the imminent nuclear holocaust that will strike the American, British and Jewish peoples.

Sadly, too many Jews are hypocrites! They wring their hands, hold sanctimonious group hug memorials around the world and seek the sympathy of the nations they witness to, while testifying against themselves by exposing their miserable failure to learn the lessons of Hitler's war against the Jews: there's no lasting place for Jews in the Exile (where most remain), that such a self-imposed exile will lead to self-destruction (in one way or another), that you must take your enemies at their word, not your wishful thinking (like the delusional "peace" process), and it's necessary to return to the Torah of God and Homeland of Israel.

The Jews are permitting the pagan pope - a Babylonian envoy, a modern day Balaam - to pollute the Holy Land of Israel while the bloody Vatican holds the Temple treasures and Judaica hostage! The Israelis are inviting the German fox into the chicken coop!

The Vatican's hateful stance against Jews and Israel is well known, and yet Jewish sheeple are downplaying or ignoring it to their own peril! Others, like the "indefatigable subversive" Shimon Peres (as Yitzhak Rabin exposed him), actively collaborate with the Antiochus Epiphanes of the European Union and will soon see all Israel suffer a brutal betrayal when the German-Jesuit jackboot stomps Jerusalem!

Beyond Babylon warns: Beware Roman wolves in sheep's clothing! *Europe's New Crusade has its evil eye on Mount Zion and is after the Temple Mount. But Jews won't listen any more than Joes (descendants of Joseph, the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic peoples), especially the Christian reprobates, since we're a nation of drunks and whores who have been warned to shape up or get shipped out!

Even though Israel and Judah (the British-Israelites and Jews) will soon suffer the worst time in history, the Time of Jacob's Trouble, the Great Tribulation - having failed to take our God-given warning seriously - Two Witnesses in Jerusalem will offer hope and comfort to our captive audience and prepare us to meet our King.

Israel tries to silence outspoken critic

Read all about it:

Exposing the German-Vatican Plot to Occupy Jerusalem
The one time The Traveller did run a political piece, it ruffled feathers with the local authorities. In 'Will Jerusalem become an international city?' by American writer David Ben-Ariel, readers were warned about a German-Vatican plot to take over Jerusalem, urged to take back the Temple Mount and dislodge 'as symbols of foreign occupation' Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock.

Still at Large!
The Jerusalem Post, Jan. 8, 1996, had a front page story about how the GSS sought my deportation for alleged involvement in a "plot to blow up the Al-Aksa mosque."

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.

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.

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."

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."

Jesus was a Jew and Jewish!

Jesus Was A Jew! Jesus Was Jewish!

Jesus was a Jew! Jesus was Jewish! This is elementary to most Bible-believers, but some have been horribly misled to believe otherwise.

Yeshua clearly identified with the Jews of His day and their religion (although correcting its errors), His physical people and tribe, and God purposely sent Him to Judah: "He came to His own [Judah], and His own [Judah] did not receive Him. But as many [Jews] as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name...(John 1:11-12) and He clearly said: "You [Gentiles] worship what you do not know; WE [Jews] know what WE [Jews]worship, for salvation is of the JEWS" (John 4:22).

Yeshua also made mention of a Jewess (who He healed) as a physical daughter of Abraham (Luke 13:16), yet those bound by Satan in his murderous lie against Yeshua's own people, the tribe of Judah, the Jews, read right over these plain Scriptures, blinded by their unwarranted hatred! Some are so twisted to even deny Yeshua is of the Tribe of Judah, as He was foretold to be, of the Royal House of David, a Jew (Romans 1:3, 2 Timothy 2:8). In fact, the sign of the virgin birth was given to the Jews, to the House of David, in Bethlehem (where David was born)- not London! (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 2:6, John 7:42).

Peter's sermon on Shavuot/Pentecost addressed Jews in Jerusalem who had gathered from all over the world, as ethnically “Men of Israel" (Acts 2:22) and racially of the "House of Israel" (vs. 36) and preached salvation to them through Yeshua, "For the promise is to you [Judah] and to your children..."(vs. 39), even as Paul later confirmed: "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first [His own] and also for the Greek" (Romans 1:16).

Paul makes reference to those unbelieving Jews, who are part of the House of Israel, as his flesh - not just his religion (Romans 11:14). Paul acknowledged Jews as legitimate descendants of Israel, children of the Fathers (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) for whose sakes' they remain beloved despite their present unbelief (Romans 11:28).

The following articles address different points those caught up in doctrines of demons against Jews have fallen for, in the hope some may let the truth set them free, so help them God:

Did Jesus Call Jews the Children of the Devil?
Jesus acknowledged that Abraham is the father of the Jews physically, but not always spiritually (John 8:37, 39, 42, 44). The same can be said and is true about all Twelve Tribes of Israel. In fact, the commission of the Two Witnesses - in the spirit of Elijah - is to restore our relationship with our Fathers (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) and thereby through their true religion reconcile us to our Heavenly Father (Malachi 4:6; Isa. 49:5-6).

Synagogue of Satan?
"And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, but thou art rich and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan." (Rev. 2:8-9)

A Jewish Homeland
Did God condemn the Jews to wander until Messiah comes but blessed every other tribe of Israel with a national inheritance?Does that make sense? Is God fair? Is Israel so much holier than Judah? Or could it be, as Herbert W. Armstrong taught in The United States and Britain in Prophecy, that Israel's punishment was to last for 2,520 years (Lev. 26:21)?

David Ben-Ariel Faces the Aryan Nations
My agenda is to serve the Great God of Israel, sharing the plain truth of His Bible and announce His soon coming Kingdom of God-Beings to rule on Earth and save all mankind from extinction. This clarity of mind, vision and purpose also includes serving as an emissary of Joseph (revealing the Israelite origins of the West). This God-given message must reach those high and low, rich and poor, regardless of race or religion.

Aryan Nations to be Deported by Germany!
The Aryan Nations again misses a God-given opportunity to repent of their blind hatred of our Jewish brethren and prefer to believe the idolatrous ideas of deceived and deceiving men over the Word of God.

The Oracles of God
God's empowered the Jews - despite themselves - to preserve His Word. They are the only people on Earth that God has blessed and ordained to fulfill such a calling! God will not retract His Word or renege on this gift and responsibility that He's graciously bestowed upon Judah.

The Pharisees
Who isn't aware of the sins of the Pharisees? Especially the Accuser of the Brethren? But does that mean the truths they teach, even if they don't live them, are no longer true?

Jesus GAVE His Life To Give Us LIFE!
The passionate anti-Semites/anti-Zionists would do well to note Jesus' words of life and forgiveness: "FATHER, FORGIVE THEM, for they know not what they do...". Who are puny men to continue a blood libel against every Jew for the actions of a relative few?

God is with the Jews!
Zechariah 8:23"Thus says the LORD of hosts: 'In those days ten men [representatives of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel?] from every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, "Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.""

Christian Zionists, Jews, and Israel
I am a Bible-believer, a Christian-Zionist (one who believes the Prophets foretold the restoration of Jews first of all 12 Tribes of Israel to the Promised Land of Israel before the end of this world as we know it). I am not a Protestant or a "Jew for Jesus" and certainly not a member of the Roman Catholic Cult. I am a baptized member of the Sabbath-keeping Church of God...

Israel and Judah Must Get House in Order Before King Messiah Arrives
According to the rabbis, the "Lost Ten Tribes" are for all intents and purposes "Gentiles." This information constitutes further proof that the "Lost Ten Tribes" are not those diverse claimants (African, Indians, Burmese) who maintain remnants of Judaism from somebody's former conversion or contact with the religion of Judaism.

Jews to Receive Jesus as Israel's King!
Is there strong indication in the Bible that Israel will have a change of heart and accept Yeshua because of the preaching of two prophets in Jerusalem, the Two Witnesses announced in Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11?

The Ezekiel Temple

God commands Israel to build Temple

How should Christians view efforts to build the Temple?

The Ezekiel Temple

The Ezekiel Temple

The Ezekiel Temple
by Jan Willem van der Hoeven,
Director International Christian Zionist Center

Fully eight chapters in the book of Ezekiel have been dedicated to this beautiful structure, a temple which has yet to be built in Jerusalem. Surely this is a measure of the tremendous importance the Scriptures attach to it.

Apart from these final chapters in Ezekiel, we find the temple mentioned elsewhere in Scripture - in Zechariah, in The Revelation, and in 2 Thessalonians, to name a few.

Despite the importance, which the Bible thus attaches to this matter, there remains among believers a tremendous lack of interest in, or understanding of, the importance of this new temple that will one day, in the not too distant future, be raised up on the Temple Mount.

There are different reasons for this lack of understanding:

Many believers see the next temple only as the Jewish temple in which the Antichrist will be seated for a while, and therefore view it in a rather negative light.

Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. (2 Thessalonians 2: 3,4)

And there is the belief, which is of course correct in itself, that today's temple of God is not made by human hands, but is formed out of those who truly believe - living stones put together for a habitation unto God in these days.

Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone, in whom the whole building, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit. (Ephesians 2:19-22)

Furthermore, we know that not only the body of believers, but the body of the Lord Himself is seen in Scripture as the temple of God, as Jesus thus referred to His own body when He said:

"Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." (John 2:19)

Then the Jews said, "It has taken 46 years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days?" BUT HE WAS SPEAKING OF THE TEMPLE OF HIS BODY. (John 2:20,21)

It is for these reasons, among others, that despite the eight chapters Ezekiel dedicates to the subject of the future temple, many Christian believers have shown little regard for, or comprehension of, this temple. The fact that Ezekiel's narrative includes the revival of the sacrificial rites makes it all the more complicated for many believers, holding to the belief, as they rightly do, that after Jesus' sacrifice there is no longer a need for other sacrifices. And this is something the author of the epistle to the Hebrews clearly points out.

What, then, should our attitude be towards this beautiful description of the temple contained in Ezekiel's book?

We certainly do not get the impression that something negative is being presented here - like the temple of the Anti-Christ, or 'poor Jews' going back to the sacrificial rites, when we know that there is no longer any need for such offerings: Jesus having died on the cross as the final sacrifice for our sins.

And as it is quite clearly not something negative that the prophet is presenting us with here, we do well to give full credit to God's clearly written Word, and to ponder on what the purpose and meaning of all this is supposed to be.

If we see that the tabernacle of Moses is a forerunner to the temple later built by David's son Solomon, it becomes clear just how large and important a place this subject fills in the Scriptures. For just as there are eight chapters in Ezekiel describing in the minutest detail the structure of the temple, so too are there many chapters in the Bible describing, in similar, painstaking detail, the building and erection of the tabernacle. Later, numerous chapters deal with the preparation for, and building and dedication of, Solomon's temple. And again, equally as many chapters in the books of Ezra, Nehemiah and Haggai describe the events leading up to the building of the second temple by Zerubbabel.

This great weight of Scripture surely indicates the tremendous importance which the tabernacle and later the temple, have in the Scriptures, and also in the writings of the prophets who clearly indicate the time that is coming when the temple, the third temple this time, assuredly will be built again.

Therefore it is important for us to discover, even in this study, what is the significance and importance of the Ezekiel temple, if Jesus Himself, and the body of His believers, is the temple of God; and if His sacrifice on the cross is the final sacrifice for all time.

In order for us to fathom this, we need to go back to the days of the New Testament, and especially to Jesus' relation to "His Father's house", as He called the temple that Herod had worked for 46 years to beautify and restore. This, by the way, was also the temple that had been defiled some years in advance of Jesus' coming by Antiochus Epiphanes - the man often seen as a type, or forerunner, of the Antichrist.

"Antiochus commanded an altar to be built on the Temple Mount and then ordered pigs to be sacrificed on it," writes Hoddenbagh in his book The Divine Plan (pages 201 and 202).
Thus it was this temple, that Herod had beautified and Antiochus greatly defiled, that Jesus called "My Father's house". And He did so even though He, Himself, was the temple, and was far more holy than any temple built by human hands.

This is an extremely important point, especially in regard to the temple or House of God that yet must be built in Jerusalem on God's holy hill.

For if Jesus can still call the temple beautified by Herod and desecrated by Antiochus the house of His Father, then the third temple, even if it is seized upon by the Antichrist for a short period, still will be called the house of God. This can be seen in the second epistle of Paul to the Thessalonians, when he writes:

Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God IN THE TEMPLE OF GOD (note, not the temple of the Beast), showing himself that he is God.
(2 Thessalonians 2: 3,4)

Therefore, just as the second temple, beautified by Herod and defiled by Antioch remained, to Jesus' mind, the temple of God, so too will the third temple, even though desecrated by the man of sin, remain and be called the temple of God!

It would be good to relate here from different New Testament passages the respect that Jesus bore towards this house of His father. We see one account in the lovely story related by Luke of Jesus as a boy:

And when He was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem according to the custom of the feast (of Passover). When they had finished the days, as they returned, the Boy Jesus lingered behind in Jerusalem. And Joseph and His mother did not know it; … Now so it was that after three days they found Him in the temple, … So when they saw Him, they were amazed; … And He said to them, "Why did you seek Me? DID YOU NOT KNOW THAT I MUST BE ABOUT MY FATHER'S BUSINESS?" (Luke 2: 42, 43, 46, 48, 49 NKJ)

This is an amazing passage about the importance Jesus still attached to His Father's house, even though it had been defiled. And what a wonderful illustration of biblical balance, that although He could have belittled the importance of this temple because of the rightful claim He could make to being the temple Himself, He did not do so. Instead, as we shall see from the next example, He honoured His Father's house.

It was during another Passover Feast, John tells us, that Jesus again went up to the temple in Jerusalem:

Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the moneychangers doing business. When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple … And He said to those who sold doves, "Take these things away! Do not make My Father's house a house of merchandise!" Then His disciples remembered that it was written, "Zeal for Your house has eaten Me up." (John 2: 13, 14, 15, 16, 17)

If some of us are honest in this respect we would not have expected the Lord to call a building made from stone His Father's house. And yet, this is what we find in the Scriptures.

Some may retort that all this took place before He brought the final sacrifice in His body on the cross - when, as the Gospels relate, the curtain of the temple was torn asunder from top to bottom. Now we live in the time after those events, these people may say - after the crucifixion of Jesus and His resurrection. And, after all, isn't the fact that this temple was then destroyed by Titus in AD 70 proof that it was no longer important to believers in the Lord Messiah, who Himself became the temple, the High Priest, and the sacrifice, thus fulfilling it all? And isn't this exactly what Jesus said in His conversation with the Samaritan woman, when He prophesied about the time to come?

"But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him…Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father." (John 4: 23,24)

This verse is often used to explain away any need for another temple in which God will be worshipped, even at a later stage. But the fact is that in the Greek this oft-quoted passage of Scripture leaves this interpretation wide open.

When Jesus says "neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem" the Greek word does not signify a total negation. Rather, it means "the hour is coming that not only on this mountain nor only in Jerusalem", so that the possibility exists that God will one day again being worshipped - also in spirit and truth - on Jerusalem's Temple Mount!

And that this is apparently the case is seen in the passage in The Revelation to John, where worship is definitely again associated with the future temple in Jerusalem:

And the angel stood, saying, "Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, AND THOSE WHO WORSHIP THERE. (Revelation 11:1)

Then the point is often raised about the re-introduction of sacrifices, which seems to stand in conflict with the New Testament teaching of the finality of the sacrifice that our Lord became for us -- and for the sins of the whole world. What, then, do we do with the sacrifices mentioned in Ezekiel's prophecy concerning the temple? (See Hebrews 9: 24-28)

No one is denying the finality of our Lord's sacrifice on the cross – not those who fail to see a great need for rebuilding the temple, nor those who see the need. Here, all true believers unite in the realisation of the truth of the words of the author to the Hebrews:

For Christ has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us; not that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood of another-He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgement, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. (Hebrews 9: 24-28)

But does it follow that there can thus never be a time when the sacrifices will again be part and parcel of the service of worship to God in the new temple? This is the question we need to ask ourselves. And on this point the Bible does give a clear and unequivocal answer:

There will come a time, during the new temple period, when sacrifices will be offered again. It says so in Ezekiel, and it is also mentioned by Daniel, when he speaks of the evil ruler - "the little horn" - to come, by whom the daily sacrifices will be taken away, and the place of His sanctuary will be cast down (Daniel 8:11). This surely implies not only a rebuilt temple towards the end of time, but also a reinstitution of the daily sacrifices!

This fact of the reinstitution of the sacrifices, even sin sacrifices - albeit for awhile - does not mean a cancellation of the finality of Jesus' sacrifice for sins, just as the continuation of those sacrifices in the temple until AD 70 never pointed to a cancellation of the finality of that sacrifice. These were sacrifices that even the Apostle Paul participated in, as is seen from the account in Acts 21:23-26!

If God could live with this fact of continued sacrifices and sin offerings in the as yet un-destroyed second temple after the sacrificial death of His Son, can we not live with such renewed sacrifices during the period of the third temple?

And just as the sacrifices in the days of Moses' tabernacle and the two temples were a mere fore-shadowing of the sacrifice God would make of His Son - can the sacrifices that will be held in Ezekiel's temple not equally be pointers back to that wonderful gift that He gave?

In the same way: If Jesus was not loathe to come to His Father's house in the days of His flesh - even though it had been defiled by a forerunner of the man of sin - why should He not come suddenly to the temple that is to be built on His holy hill?

God came in His shekinah glory and visitation to Solomon's temple after it was built. Through Christ He came to the second temple built by Zerubbabel. Why, then, should He not come to the third temple once it has been built, as stated in Ezekiel 43?

"…And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple, even the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight. Behold, He is coming," says the LORD of hosts. "But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner's fire and like launderer's soap. … He will purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer to the LORD an offering in righteousness. Then the offering of Judah and Jerusalem will be pleasant to the LORD, AS IN THE DAYS OF OLD, AS IN FORMER YEARS." (Malachi 3: 1-4)

What an amazing Scripture! And in Ezekiel we read a nearly identical passage:

And behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east. His voice was like the sound of many waters; and the earth shone with His glory. … And the glory of the LORD came into the temple by way of the gate which faces toward the east. The Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court; and behold, the glory of the LORD filled the temple. …
And He said to me, "Son of man, this is the place of My throne and the place of the soles of My feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel forever. …
"Son of man, describe the temple to the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities; and let them measure the pattern. …Write it down in their sight, so that they may keep its whole design and all its ordinances, and perform them.
"This is the law of the temple: The whole area surrounding the mountaintop shall be most holy. Behold, this is the law of the temple."
(Ezekiel 43: 2, 4-5, 7, 10, 11, 12)

With these beautiful and forceful words the words of the Psalms agree:

Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against His Anointed … "Yet I have set My King on My holy hill of Zion." (Psalm 2:1,2,6)

And:

Let us go into His tabernacle; let us worship at His footstool. Arise, O LORD, to Your resting place, you and the ark of Your strength. Let Your priests be clothed with righteousness, and let Your saints shout for joy.

For the LORD has chosen Zion; he has desired it for His dwelling place: "This is My resting place forever; here I will dwell, for I have desired it."
(Psalm 132: 7,8,13,14)

Benjamin Netanyahu's administration has failed its first test over the Temple Mount

Post-Passover: Arabs Threaten, Police Ban Jews from Temple Mt.

************

How long will the Israelis permit Nazi Muslims to dictate their lives? Whenever the foxes menace the Children of Israel, keep the foxes at bay - don't give them treats! The sooner Israel removes the threat, stops rewarding terrorism, and restores the Temple Mount as the TEMPLE Mount the better!

Sadly, Benjamin Netanyahu's administration has failed its first test over the Temple Mount, sadly reminiscent of his former administration that talked tough but failed to secure the Temple Mount for Jewish worship.

Benjamin Netanyahu: "The right of the Jewish people to its holy place - the Temple Mount - cannot be questioned...I believe it is necessary to arrange for Jewish prayer on the site, especially given that we permit freedom of worship to all the religions in Jerusalem...".

And his office charged Palestinian officials with "disparaging Jewish holy sites and threatening potential worshippers" (in flagrant violation of Israel's 1967 Law for the Protection of the Holy Places and the Oslo Accords). His deputy director of communications, Michael Freund, responded to the PA mufti's declaration of war (that Jews "...must absolutely forget about having any rights over the Temple Mount...the Western Wall is just a fence belonging to a Muslim holy site") by saying "these statements are repugnant and they betray a contempt for Judaism's most sacred sites and beliefs. They are an affront to history and insulting to Jews everywhere."

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.

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.

Will Bibi open the Temple Mount?

Give Bibi a Chance

Bibi’s already had his chance and blew it. Will he do teshuva? (repent, turn around, return) I doubt it.

Bibi failed to make Oslo null and void, Bibi surrendered Hevron, and most wickedly - Bibi failed to open the Temple Mount to *Jewish worship as he said he would!

*Benjamin Netanyahu: “The right of the Jewish people to its holy place - the Temple Mount - cannot be questioned…I believe it is necessary to arrange for Jewish prayer on the site, especially given that we permit freedom of worship to all the religions in Jerusalem…”.

Faith and Determination

Faith and Determination
Nissan 20, 5769/April 14, 2009
Erev Shvi'i shel Pesach/6th Day of the Counting of the Omer

The Seventh Day of Passover, (Shvi'i shel Pesach - the evening of April 14th), marks the anniversary of the crossing of the Sea of Reeds by the children of Israel as they fled Pharaoh and his army. We are taught not simply to remember the historical moments that our festivals and holidays commemorate, but to internalize them and relive them.

"The Lord said to Moses, Why do you cry out to Me? Speak to the children of Israel and let them travel." (Exodus 14:15)

The newly liberated nation of Israel had arrived, just one week after escaping Egypt, on the banks of the Sea of Reeds. Fast approaching from behind was the invincible Egyptian army, led by the "all-powerful" Pharaoh himself. Stuck, so to speak, between a rock and a hard place, it was decision making time for the former slaves. As such, it was their first taste of freedom, and the responsibilities that freedom requires.

Midrash tells us that the people split up into four factions, each with its own response to the crisis which they faced. One group called upon the people to simply raise their hands and surrender en masse, put the whole history of the ten plagues and the midnight break-out from Egypt behind them, and return to the status ante quo as slaves.

A second group suggested that the entire nation commit a mass suicide, throwing themselves into the sea.

The third group, perhaps attempting to redeem the honor of the nascent nation, if nothing else, rallied the people to band together militarily, and take a final stand against the world's mightiest army.

The fourth and final faction called for continued prayer.

Confronted with the need to make a choice, the people were, in fact, making up choices, as none of the above suggested responses were true responses:

Resubmitting themselves to slavery, an outright rejection of G-d's will, a crime perhaps as great as that of the generation of the flood, would have spelled the bitter end of the newborn nation.
The suggestion to drown themselves in the Sea of Reeds, should, perhaps, be seen as a metaphor for assimilation: "If we only blend ourselves into our surroundings, lose those things that set us apart from the others, then maybe they will leave us alone." Nearly four thousand years later, we can all agree that this idea is risible. No doubt Pharaoh's horseman would have received the order to follow them into the sea in order to drag them out. It is not so easy for Jews to simple fade into the background.

Uniting in order to counterattack, while evoking a certain noble intention, was akin to mass suicide. And contemplating the highly unlikely scenario that the ragtag militia of ex-slaves could have held off the army of Pharaoh, is this what G-d desired: an Israelite stronghold on the eastern bank of the Sea of Reeds?

The call for continued prayer, rather than expressing a deeper faith in G-d, actually expressed the opposite: Had G-d not just said that the time for prayer had ended? Had He not just said: "Speak to the children of Israel and let them travel [?]" (ibid) Part of the faith expressed in prayer is in accepting the finality of G-d's answer.

When put to their first test, the children of Israel, far from standing shoulder-to-shoulder and making a choice, divided into factions and made virtual choices - choices that were not based in reality, and therefore, could not be acted upon. Their decision making process was a method of avoiding making a decision at all.

Then came Nachshon, who, as Midrash relates, simply walked into the sea up to his nostrils, hesitating not for a moment. Facing east to the distant land promised by G-d to the children of Israel, Nachshon knew exactly what he was doing. To the others he may have appeared mad, but G-d immediately awarded his action, and the sea split before him. Such an outright manifestation of G-d's approval quickly brought the others in his wake. Nachshon did what no one else had dared to do: He took supreme faith in G-d, and married it to an unwavering, unbending determination to fulfill His word. Even his name, Nachshon, derives from the Hebrew na-CHOOSH - "determined." Nachshon didn't make the best choice, he made the only choice.
Moving forward with determination to fulfill the Divine will, to seek out the destiny that G-d has set for the nation of Israel, is what Passover is all about. The relentless march toward the achievement of a world in which G-d's presence will be welcome, a world in which the nations will stream toward Jerusalem to worship the Holy One, blessed be He, in His chosen house, is what the nation of Israel, and all who seek His truth, are all about.

Cursed for pagan Easter!

Will God Curse Our Countries For Easter?



"You don't celebrate Easter?" Well, not any more.

1 Peter 4:3-5
For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles—when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries. 4 In regard to these, they think it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of dissipation, speaking evil of you. 5 They will give an account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.

I realize that those who are still drunk on the wine of the Babylonian Mystery religion (incorporated into the Roman Catholic Cult as brought out in The Two Babylons by Alexander Hislop) don't appreciate or comprehend those who are now SOBER and happy to be free from idolatrous traditions for the plain truth of the Bible and history. Truly, the vast majority of religious people constitute a nation of drunks and whores.

The Sabbath-keeping Church of God rejoices in the knowledge and glorious plan of salvation for all mankind that the biblical festivals, the holy days that our Great Creator God has ordained portray -- no longer falling for the hollow days of pagan Rome, pimped by Roman wolves in sheep's clothing, false father figures.

The Sabbath-keeping Church of God celebrate that soon everybody will join us in celebrating God's holy days, the "Jewish holidays" in spirit and in truth, and will trash their former tinsel traditions. We are pioneers of the Wonderful World Tomorrow!

Jeremiah 16:19
O LORD, my strength and my fortress, My refuge in the day of affliction, The Gentiles shall come to You From the ends of the earth and say, "Surely our fathers have inherited lies, Worthlessness and unprofitable things."

It is sad when folks continue to fall for all the RELIGIOUS BULL Rome has dumped on the world and pretend they're worshipping Christ who hates such PAGAN ABOMINATIONS. Why remain in denial?

God is truth and despises such religious lies as Christmas and Easter. They're PAGAN to the core and God's People avoid them like the plague, happy with the biblical festivals God has given us to celebrate.

Yeshua, the King of the Jews, the King of Israel, will return and reign supreme from Jerusalem and teach the Torah, slaughtering the papal bull by the sword of the truth.

Isaiah 2:2-32
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 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 [contrary to Christian liars, it wasn't done away],
And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem [not Rome].

Yeshua will establish the law of God as the law of the land, the law of all the Earth! That holy law reveals the seven biblical festivals of the LORD that Yeshua will faithfully teach and command all nations to observe or else -- not just the Jewish people and British-Israelites.

Yes, too many people have inherited religious lies, and have passed down traditional error from generation to generation; worthless celebrations that God hates and rejects as unclean and polluted.

It bears repeating, since our proud and stubborn peoples have thick skulls that need the truth knocked into them, driving home this biblical message: Christmas and Easter are PAGAN -- those who say otherwise are liars, dishonest with themselves and others, worshipping God in vain (Titus 1:16, 1 John 2:4).

I believe many PROFESSING Christians are actually familiar with the Scriptures that condemn futile attempts to modify pagan holidays and tailor heathen customs to serve the true God (Deut. 12:30-32, Jer. 10:2-3), but they conveniently ignore them or reject them by woeful neglect when such Scriptures step on their traditional toes and make them uncomfortable, demanding change (isn't that what true conversion is all about?), requiring them to learn to love God's truth more than their TRADITIONS (Mark 7:7).

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.

Death to America? May the servants of God, who know and believe the Bible and its principles and prophecies about blessings for national obedience and curses for national disobedience (Dan. 9:11), plea for diehard Catholics and Protestants to REPENT!

May we take the Word of God seriously and turn from the pagan holidays that God hates so much He let ancient Israel and Judah suffer destruction, defeat and deportation for such "harmless" celebrations and blind observations.

Will we insist on losing our national sovereignty too, brought to our knees to learn to see things God's way or will we repent and spare ourselves, our family and friends, from suffering the dreadful Time of Jacob's Trouble, the Great Tribulation?

1 Corinthians 10:19-21
19 What am I saying then? That an idol is anything, or what is offered to idols is anything? 20 Rather, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons. 21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord's table and of the table of demons. [No mixing and matching of pagan error with biblical truth]

2 Corinthians 6:14-18
14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? 15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? [No diluting, adulterating and polluting of God's truth with pagan blends] Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? 16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said:

"I will dwell in them
And walk among them.
I will be their God,
And they shall be My people."

17 Therefore
"Come out from among them

And be separate, says the Lord. [Don't stay stuck in the rut of tradition, but let the plain truth set you free!]
Do not touch what is unclean,
And [then] I will receive you.

18 [on these conditions] I will be a Father to you,
And you shall be My sons and daughters,
Says the LORD Almighty."

"With a Mighty Hand and an Outstretched Arm"

"With a Mighty Hand and an Outstretched Arm"
(from the Passover Haggadah)
Nissan 14, 5769/April 8, 2009Erev Pesach

When G-d decided to free the children of Israel from the oppression of Egypt, nothing could stand in His way: not Pharaoh, the most powerful potentate on earth, and not even the impassable Yam Suf - the Sea of Reeds. These truths may seem patently self-evident as we reflect on the exodus from Egypt, but we are commanded to remind ourselves every day of the exodus, so as not to forget that what applied for our forefathers three thousand and five hundred years ago, applies no less for us today. When we decide to free ourselves from the many kinds of bondage we face in life, both those self-imposed, and those imposed by society, G-d will be there, "With a mighty hand and an outstretched arm," to take us to our promised land. The promise of freedom — true freedom — the freedom to serve our G-d as He has commanded us — cannot be denied!

The Temple Institute extends its blessings for a joyful and kosher Chag Cherut — Festival of Freedom — to the entire house of Israel and to all who seek the G-d of Israel. Happy Passover!

Please take the time to visit us online and learn more about the exodus from Egypt, Pesach as it was observed in the Holy Temple, and the deep spiritual lessons of Passover that can inform our lives today:

Tune in to this week's Temple Talk as Rabbi Richman and Yitzchak Reuven, exhausted from their Passover preparations, discuss the great Passover night conundrum: G-d redeems Israel in a flash of spiritual illumination that washes over us and leaves us dazed. But the very next morning we roll up our sleeves and start the arduous process of counting the days and weeks of the Omer, while preparing ourselves spiritually for receiving the Torah at Mount Sinai.

This week features the latest Bat Melech video teaching with Rabbanit Rena Richman, entitled, "Righteous Women, Part II: The second part of a series in which Rena explores and shares the great spiritual depths of the righteous women who protected the children of Israel from the evil decree of Pharaoh, and prepared them for their eventual exodus from bondage and emergence as a free people. Part II focusses on the central role women played in the liberation of the nation of Israel from Egyptian bondage." Click here to view.

Today also features the Light to the Nations teaching by Rabbi Chaim Richman, entitled, "The Passover Experience: Korban Pesach: The Passover offering in the Holy Temple, perhaps the single most important act of the year for every man, woman and child of the people of Israel: How it was, and will be performed in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem." Click here to view.

This coming Monday, April 13th, the new Light to the Nations teaching will be aired: "Hanging in the Balance: The great illumination of 'instant' freedom that we experience on the Seder night so often seems to pass us by. Slaves yesterday, free men today, we simply haven't the vessels to be able to absorb the great chesed — loving kindness — and enlightenment that G-d had blessed us with. For this we have Sefirat HaOmer - the counting of the days of the Omer, that prepares us gradually for the great re-illumination of G-d's light — receiving Torah on Mount Sinai." Click here to view.

Now is the time to further augment your knowledge of how Passover is intended to be observed. Have a look at our classic online Passover narrative, "Shlomo's Passover Adventure," the informative story of a family's pilgrimage to the Holy Temple in Jerusalem to celebrate the Festival of Freedom with the entire family of Israel. A must for children and adults. Click here!
