Jews haven't fulfilled prophecies about Joseph!

Re: The United States is Manasseh

#39. To: Magician (#14)

I've never seen so much BS in my life.

Those who cannot debate, defame; cannot refute, ridicule. The plain truth about the Israelite origins, the Hebrew roots, of the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic peoples is overwhelming, recognized by a growing number of Jews and British Israelites and Gentiles (as prophesied). Brit Am Israel is a Torah-observant, Jerusalem based organization, that helps restore the identification of the Israelite tribes. However, there is nothing new under the sun: Joseph's brethren were blind to his identity and he stood right before them!

Since you go to a Reform "temple" in a self-imposed exile, failing to follow Judaism to the Jewish homeland of Israel - I'm not surprised this BIBLICAL TRUTH floors you. You undoubtedly still assume Judaism is nothing about race, in complete contradiction to the facts on the ground. Regardless if you remain in denial, these things remain true: The Bible is an ethnocentric book with  its focus on the family of Jacob; there are Twelve Tribes of Israel, the Lost Ten Tribes are ethnic peoples, Joseph isn't Jewish, it's the Promised Land of ISRAEL (named after an ethnic, tribal, patriarch) with biblical border definitions (which is why even secular Jews were wise enough to reject Uganda), and Israel and Judah are to ultimately become, collectively speaking, One Nation Under God, a truly United Kingdom.

Certainly NONE of the prophecies about becoming a GREAT NATION and a COMMONWEALTH OF NATIONS, world powers, breadbaskets of the world, have been fulfilled in little Judah.

Your faithless kind must be who columnist Shmuel Schnitzer lamented as the new Jewish people who are "preparing to deny our [Jewish] rights, both the divine promise and in terms of REFERRING TO THE LAND BY THE NAME OF ITS PEOPLE, "The Land of Israel' -- a land which belongs to the Children of Israel, from then and to eternity...".

Years ago Mr. Schnitzer questioned, in the Israeli newspaper Maariv, “[W]hat kind of Jewish people will this be with no attachment to its land, without all the places of the book of Joshua, the wonderful vistas there, without the intensity of the prophetic vision, without the heritage of our fighters who spilt their blood for the country which was promised them and their descendants?” (Sept. 14, 1994). (excerpt from Do the Jews Belong in the Land of Israel?)

American Christian-Zionist David Ben-Ariel detained

"This reminds us of the case of the American Christian-Zionist David Ben-Ariel, who was imprisoned for allegedly trying to destroy the Dome of the Rock, to make way for the reconstruction of the Jewish Temple. Ben-Ariel repeatedly declared that he was there only to protest, not to destroy the mosque.

Attorney Naftali Wurtzberger, who defended Federman, also represented David Ben-Ariel during his trial in Israeli High Court and Jerusalem's Municipal Court. Ben-Ariel is now free and back in the United States. Yet, the Israeli government determined that Ben-Ariel cannot visit Israel, although he might be eligible to return in 2005. Why not deport the leaders of terrorist groups who are living, apparently with more rights, in Judea, Samaria and Gaza?"
- Is Administrative Detention Just?

Ben Ariel not arrested...

Ben Ariel was not arrested on political charges...

Due to persistent false rumors that I, David Ben-Ariel, was involved in a plot to blow up the mosques in Jerusalem, even by lying religious leaders like Gerald Flurry of the Philadelphia Church of God (not just enemies of the plain truth of the Bible), I present here the State Department letter from former American Consul General in Jerusalem, Edward G. Abington, Jr. to Ohio Representative Marcy Kaptur. (Jr.'s hostility to the Temple Mount Faithful is explained in Why Edward Abington, Jr. Must Be Investigated! and his dubious character and conflict of interests in Something smells bad).

"I will sing to HaShem..."

(Exodus 15:1)
Shevat 12, 5770/January 27, 2010

We know that on the eve of the Israelites' great escape across the Sea of Reeds, G-d caused a "strong east wind [to blow] all night long." (Exodus 14:21) We aren't told what the weather was the following morning as the children of Israel walked across the sea on dry ground, but it is safe to speculate that the day was spectacularly clear. For we are told by our sages that all of the children of Israel, from the mightiest to the lowliest, saw further than even the greatest of their future prophets ever would. In fact, they saw clear from this world into the next.

Pointing to a curious grammatical turn of phrase in the Hebrew words, "az yashir - and then sang Moses and the children of Israel," (ibid 15:1) which is more accurately translated as, "and then Moses and the children of Israel will sing," our sages teach us that the Song of the Sea was sung not only at the time of the crossing of the sea, but will be sung again by Moses and the children of Israel in the future, at the time of the resurrection of the dead. What was so unique about this moment in our history that the nascent nation of Israel was afforded so powerful a one-time glimpse into the future?

Ostensibly, the revelation at Sinai, still six weeks away at the time of the crossing of the Sea of Reeds, is the moment of greatest revelation for the children of Israel, for it was there that Israel received Torah. But something even more monumental took place at the Sea of Reeds. The great miracles that G-d wrought in Egypt, the ten plagues, all were directed toward Pharaoh and Egypt. G-d Himself explains that their purpose is to make known His name to Egypt, and by extension, to the world. (ibid 7:5) The plagues were intended to make perfectly clear to Pharaoh Who was in charge in this world, and that it wasn't Pharaoh. G-d was not ready to take Israel out of Egypt until this message was irrevocably delivered.

But when G-d split open the Sea of Reeds it was the very first time that He performed such a miracle only for the benefit of His people, the children of Israel. The time of chastening the nations was over, and this was G-d's first revelation of His new intimate relationship with Israel. The splitting of the Sea was an expression of G-d's pure and endless love for His people. And for the Israelites, this was the first intimation of G-d as loving Redeemer, that was first announced by G-d when He told Moses, "I appeared to Avraham, to Yitzchak, and to Yaakov with [the name] Almighty G-d, but [with] My name HaShem, I did not become known to them." (ibid 6:3)

The children of Israel responded to G-d's fulfillment of His Divine promise with complete and perfect emunah - faith in Him. And this faith they expressed in the soaring words of the Song of the Sea, "I will sing to HaShem, for very exalted is He; a horse and its rider He cast into the sea... " (ibid 15:1) Their great rush of faith cast aside, not only the waters of the Sea of Reeds, but all the illusions and limitations inherent in this world. Thus the vision of the resurrection of the dead, G-d's ultimate reversal of man's mortality.

This, then, is the splendid future the Israelites saw in the world to come. But what vision did their perfect faith afford them for this world? The answer to that is also found in the words of the Song of the Sea:

"You shall bring them and plant them on the mount of Your heritage, directed toward Your habitation, which You made, O L-rd; the sanctuary, O L-rd, [which] Your hands founded." (ibid 15:17)

In this moment of prophetic clarity, in this instant of perfect intimacy with G-d, the children of Israel also saw and understood for the first time the purpose of their miraculous exodus from Egypt, and their final intended destination, after all their future peregrinations in the desert and in the harsh exiles that were to follow, this being the building of the Holy Temple on G-d's holy mountain in Jerusalem. For it is there, in the Holy Temple, and in the performance of the Divine service, that the moment first experienced at the Sea of Reeds, the timeless moment of Divine love and intimacy and perfect faith, in which the promise of the world to come and the promise of this world are glimpsed, is made a living reality.

Temple TalkTune in to this week's Temple Talk as Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven discuss the current Torah reading of Beshalach, and the crossing of the Sea of Reeds: What about the casket of Yosef caused the sea to turn back the tide and open a path for the Israelites? What vision did they achieve while crossing over to the other side? What can the miraculous manna that fell from heaven teach us about our daily requirements for life? The answer to all these questions and a happy Tu b'Shevat to all!

Today also features the new Light to the Nations teaching by Rabbi Chaim Richman, entitled, "The Priestly Garments - Part I: What the Priests Wore: Each detail of the priestly garments has a unique spiritual task, and forms part of an entire outfit which is designed to represent all of Israel before G-d." Click here to view.

RenewalEach Hebrew month conveys its own unique message. The theme of this month of Shevat is the concept of renewal and rebirth. The process of rebirth is inherent in the very essence of this month. It reaches its crescendo on the 15th day of the month, when we celebrate the holiday of Tu B'Shevat (lit., "the fifteenth of Shevat," occuring this year on Shabbat, January 30th). This day, called "The New Year of Trees," conveys an uplifting idea: our sages teach that on this day, a unique wave of Divine energy flows through all of creation, a forerunner of the restoration, rejuvenation and rebirth of spring. Deep within the natural world, the vital force of life begins to rise up, within each tree, within each blade of grass, preparing for renewal. To continue reading this article, please click here.

Parashat HashavuaThe Israelites encounter with the deadly Amalek clearly shows the danger when our faith in G-d weakens. But faith in G-d is not enough. Even the wicked can be men of faith. Click here to view Rabbi Richman's short teaching on parashat Beshalach (Exodus 13:17 – 17:16).

Temple Mount Faithful Hanukkah March

The 2009 Chanukah March of the Temple Mount Faithful Movement

A Call for the Purification of the Temple Mount and the Immediate Rebuilding of the Holy Temple During the Very Critical Period in End-Time History of Israel Occurred on December 15, 2009 by the Temple Mount Faithful Movement, Who Marched From Modi'in to the Temple Mount.

View pictures of the event!

The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement marched on December 15, 2009/Kislev 28, 5770 from Modi'in, the historical city of the Maccabees, to the Biblical city of Jerusalem and to the Holy Temple Mount. This exciting and G‑dly event took place during the very critical period in Israel's end-time history when Israel is busy rebuilding the Kingdom of G‑d and regathering the people of G‑d, while extremely intensive pressure is encompassing Israel from every direction of the world trying to stop G‑d's work of redemption, to divide the Holy Land that was given only to Israel through a G‑dly covenant, to establish a Palestinian State and to make Jerusalem a Palestinian capital.

Our present era is reminiscent of the period of the ancient Maccabees, when Israel was controlled by the Greek Empire who prohibited Israel from attaining her divine mission of being a holy nation, a kingdom of priests and a light to the nations. Israel, who had sworn to commit herself to be faithful to the One True Living G‑d of Israel, immediately rejected the situation when the Greeks desecrated the Holy Temple of G‑d in Jerusalem and placed their own pagan idols inside the Holy of Holies of the Temple and forced the Israelites to accept a Hellenistic pagan faith and culture. The Israelites were determined to remain as servants 'only' to the G‑d of Israel and never to be slaves to pagan idolatries. In 175 bce the Jewish revolt against the Greeks began in Modi'in, a town where Hebrew priests resided, when the High Priest Matityahu destroyed a pagan altar and the Greek statues that stood in the city center. Matityahu killed the entire Greek military unit who had come to Modi'in to force the Jews to accept the Grecian pagan faith which made it compulsory to eat pigs. Matityahu called to his people "Mi l'HaShem alai" ("Who is with G‑d will come with me"). The first to join him were his five sons and the priests of Modi'in and together they started the G‑dly revolt to liberate the Land of Israel from Greek Hellenistic control. Matityahu and his sons adopted the name "Maccabees", an acronym for the Hebrew phrase "Mi camocha b'Elim HaShem", which means "There is no god like the G‑d of Israel". The Maccabees' first goal was to liberate the Temple Mount and Jerusalem, to remove the Greek idol seated in the Holy of Holies inside the Holy Temple, to purify the Holy Temple and to immediately renew Temple worship solely to the G‑d of Israel. On their way from Modi'in to Jerusalem a small number of Maccabees defeated an enormous number of soldiers that represented the largest army of the ancient Greek period. How could this have happened? The answer is that the G‑d of Israel became once again the General and the Commander of the Israelites and gave to His People daunting victories exactly as He did throughout Biblical history, and again, He has done during the days of the modern State of Israel, when He has defeated — in seven wars since 1948 — many Arab forces backed by the Soviet Union Empire, the Islamic world and many other nations who have come again and again to destroy Israel. Thanks to the Living Almighty G‑d of Israel and the complete faithfulness to Him by the Maccabees, the Maccabees liberated Jerusalem, purified the Temple and renewed Holy Temple worship to the G‑d of Israel. Then they liberated the entire Land of Israel and cut-off those weak Israelites who had assimilated into the Hellenistic culture. The Maccabees saved the unique and G‑dly identity of the Israelite nation from being assimilated into the Hellenistic world. The Maccabean epoch was a critical turning point in Jewish history when the Israelite nation was successfully protected so that G‑d's eternal promise to His chosen people was secured as in the days of Joshua and Caleb.

The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement has been called and anointed by the G‑d of Israel at a time very similar and significant as the Maccabean period in order to purify the Holy Temple Mount from pagan Arab and Islamic worship and to rebuild the Holy Temple of the G‑d of Israel. The Faithful Movement is committed to calling forth the Israeli government and people to purify the Temple Mount and to rebuild the Holy Temple of the G‑d of Israel and to bring into fruition the Biblical mandate to serve the G‑d of Israel only and to fulfill the Word of G‑d: that Israel will again be "... a holy nation, a kingdom of priests, My own treasure from all peoples and a light to the nations.... for all the earth is Mine says the L‑rd". (Exodus 19:5,6) We decided to restore the Maccabean heritage among the Israeli leadership and people and to bring this to pass during our lifetime as G‑d is expecting us to accomplish this for His Glory.
The Chanukah event of December 2009 was an important stage in the historical and G‑dly campaign of the Faithful Movement that began immediately after the Six Days War in 1967, when the Temple Mount, Biblical Jerusalem, the Biblical heritage of Israel in Judea, Samaria, the Sinai, Gaza and the Golan Heights were liberated by the Israeli Army of G‑d. At this divine moment in history G‑d expected His People Israel to immediately purify His Holy Mountain, rebuild His Temple, and renew worship to the G‑d of Israel and also for the Temple to be a house of prayer for all nations (Isaiah 56:7).

The Faithful went to Modi'in on Chanukah to again swear faithfulness to the G‑dly message of the Maccabees and to call forth the Israeli people and the Israeli government to attempt to make it a reality in our lifetime. We lit the candles of the Chanukah menorah and the symbolic torch of the Maccabees, which we subsequently carried to Biblical Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. It was an exciting moment when the presence of the G‑d of Israel and His love for His faithful children was felt amongst us. This exciting event took place at a time when most of the nations of the world — including the leader of the United States, President Barack Obama — are applying aggressive pressure on Israel to again divide the Holy Land of Israel. In addition, they are demanding to establish a foreign and terrorist 'so-called' Palestinian State — one that never existed in the Land of Israel nor any other place in the world — and to make Jerusalem the illegitimate capital of this Palestinian entity and in these ways to lead to the destruction of the State of Israel. We came at this critical time to say to all the world and to our Arab and Islamic enemies that the Land of Israel was given by G‑d, the Creator of heaven and earth, to His chosen people Israel, and not to any other people, more than 4,000 years ago in an eternal covenant for a holy purpose. Our goal was to share the words of Shimon the Maccabee, the son of Matityahu: "We did not take a foreign land but the land that G‑d gave only to us in an eternal covenant thousands of years ago and this holy land of Israel was robbed from us by foreigners and now G‑d returned it to us by His miracles and no one in the world has any right to it besides Israel the people of G‑d" (The Book of Maccabees). We also spoke to them the Word of G‑d spoken through His prophet Joel:
"For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring back the captivity of Yehuda and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Yehoshafat, 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 up my land." (Joel 4:1-2).
We continued from Modi'in to Biblical Jerusalem on the identical route where the Maccabees experienced their victories over the Greeks on their way to liberate Jerusalem and the Temple Mount while we carried the torch of the Maccabees and the menorah to the gates of the Biblical Jerusalem.

In Jerusalem we demonstrated in the midst of the plaza of Jaffa Gate in the Biblical Jerusalem. On the same location where the Maccabees declared the liberation of Jerusalem, we lit the Chanukah menorah with the torch of the Maccabees. We swore faithfulness to the G‑d of Israel, to Jerusalem and to His Holy Mountain. During a time when Israel is rebuilding the Kingdom of G‑d in the Holy Land, we shared the Word of G‑d with all the Arab and Islamic enemies of Israel, with President Barack Obama and with the European Union:

"... The G‑d of heaven, He will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build: but you have not portion, or right, or memorial, in Jerusalem" (Nehemiah 2:20). We called forth the people of Israel not to fear any human being but to trust only our Almighty G‑d, the G‑d of Israel: "... Be not afraid of them: remember the L‑rd, who is great and awe inspiring, and fight for your brethren, your sons, and your daughters, your wives, and your houses" (Nehemiah 4:8).

From Jaffa Gate the Faithful marched through the streets of Biblical Jerusalem to the Holy Temple Mount, where we felt the presence of the G‑d of Israel — the G‑d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob — so strongly among us. Here we prayed that G‑d will give the wisdom, the courage and the faithfulness of the Maccabees to the government of Israel in order to purify the Holy Temple Mount from our enemies and to immediately start the rebuilding of the House of G‑d as the G‑d of Israel expects it to do. It was an inspiring moment when we lit the Chanukah menorah facing the Holy of Holies. For almost 2,000 years G‑d longed for this great moment to see His children back at His Holy Mountain and glorifying Him with the light of the Chanukah menorah. When we prayed the Ma'alot song of King David we felt that the time is short and soon the Temple of G‑d will be rebuilt in the same location as the 1st and 2nd Temples and that the Holy Mountain will be purified from pagan worship and from the presence of the foreign enemy:
"I was glad when they said to me, Let us go into the house of the L‑rd: when our feet stood within thy gates, O Jerusalem; O Jerusalem, built as a city that is compact together: there the tribes used to go up, the tribes of the L‑rd, an appointed practice for Israel, to give thanks to the Name of the L‑rd. For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they who love thee shall prosper: peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee. For the sake of the house of the L‑rd our G‑d I will seek thy good." (Psalm 122).
The Temple Mount and the Land of Israel Faithful Movement is calling on everyone in Israel and throughout the world to encourage, stand and help the Faithful Movement of G‑d to bring about this vision of Holy Restoration, which is G‑d's expectation to build His Holy House on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem during the lifetime of our generation with no further delay. Only this will bring true G‑dly peace, morality and justice in Israel and throughout the whole earth just as G‑d spoke to us about the end-times that we are presently experiencing:
"And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the L‑rd's house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all the nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the L‑rd, to the house of the G‑d of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for out of Zion shall go forth Torah, and the Word of the L‑rd from Jerusalem. And He shall judge among the nations, and shall decide among many people: and they shall beat their swords into plow shares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." (Isaiah 2:2-4).
In the G‑d of Israel we trust!


Counterfeit Christianity has swallowed paganism hook, line and sinker!

Re: Herbert W. Armstrong's last letter to the Brethren & Co-Workers

#7. To: Lord Vader (#5)

Herbert W. Armstrong (and Garner Ted Armstrong)

Messrs. Herbert W. and Garner Ted Armstrong dared to share the plain truth of the Bible - whether about the baptized paganism of Christmas or Easter that counterfeit Christianity has swallowed hook, line and sinker - as well as proclaiming the GOOD NEWS of the WORLD TOMORROW: the KINGDOM OF GOD. Those who are honest recognize what they taught is true and don't get hung up on whether others (including C. H. Spurgeon) teach some aspects of these historical truths too.


Re: Does the United States Appear in Bible Prophecy?

#120. To: McCain_Rocks (#88)


That's how apostate Christians, Gentilized Christians, misled by Romanizers, spiritual drunks and whores, hatefully refer those who reject their counterfeit Christianity to faithfully keep the same biblical ("Jewish") Sabbath, the same biblical ("Jewish") festivals, the same biblical ("Jewish") dietary laws and beliefs as Yahshua, the King of the Jews, and that the early Jewish Church of God observed and taught.

The Sabbath-keeping Church of God are pioneers of the wonderful World Tomorrow when all idolatrous traditions of unclean Christianity, baptized paganism pretending to be Christian, will be history! Come Lord Yahshua!

Do you follow Constantine or Christ?

Replacement Theology Refuted!

The Bible clearly teaches that the Hebrew God chose Abraham, Isaac and Jacob for a special purpose to ultimately affect all humanity.

God first revealed Himself to "the Fathers" and promised to be their God and the God of their descendants. The rest of mankind was "temporarily" left in the dark and to their own devices.

God drafted the Twelve Tribes of Israel to become His Servant Nation. Moses rejoiced in ISRAEL'S UNIQUE CREATION (Deut.4:32-34).

The Great Creator God had never chosen any other people to represent Him. He had never inducted any other nation into His international service. He had never revealed Himself and entrusted His "Instruction Manual for Mankind," His holy Law and Word, His Divine Constitution, to any other nation or people in history!

Of physical Israel, God declares: "You only have I known of all the families of the earth" (Amos 3:2), and "He declares His word to Jacob, His statutes and His judgments to Israel. He has not dealt thus with any nation; And as for His judgments, they have not known them. Praise the LORD!" (Ps. 147:19-20).

Yes, God ordained Israel to serve as His Custodian of Divine Revelation, specifically the Jews who have been entrusted with the oracles of God (Rom. 3:1-2). And please note that this was written after the Church of God was founded and Jesus had given certain authority to his apostles.

The lying proponents of "replacement theology" deny that there's any advantage to being a Jew or an Israelite. The apostle Paul, under inspiration, strongly disagrees! He wisely continues Jesus' recognition of the Jews' God-given authority: "The scribes and Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do" (Matt. 23:2-3). And Moses prophesied that the Jews are to retain their God-given authority until Christ restores Israel as "One Nation Under God."

Moses didn't say that Gentiles or the Church had any right to covet or steal that responsibility from the Jews: "The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, UNTIL Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be" (Gen. 49:10). Jesus didn't do that at His first coming, which is why His disciples asked Him after His resurrection and just before His ascension: "Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?" (Acts 1:6). The King of the Jews will accomplish that divine mission when He returns.

God formed Israel as His Holy Nation, instructed them as His Son, and inducted them into His Divine Service. They received a special calling to become a KINGDOM OF PRIESTS, a MODEL NATION, a LIGHT TO ALL NATIONS. God decreed Israel would be "above [not equal to] all people, And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation" (Ex. 19:5-6).

NO OTHER NATION CAN COMPARE TO GOD'S RELATIONSHIP WITH ISRAEL AND HIS REVELATION TO THEM! (Deut. 4:5-8). Please understand that this utterly unique relationship and revelation is what made Israel great, it wasn't something inherent within them. It was a gift and a blessing they had received from God, despite themselves. It wasn't because they were any better than anybody else; it wasn't because of their race; it was because of GOD'S PURPOSE AND GRACE (Deut. 7:7-8; 9:5; Matt. 3:9; Rom. 3:23; 9:10-18).

The apostle Paul wrote to Church brethren, about their different gifts and calling (they weren't all equal): "For who makes thee to differ from another? And what do you have that you didn't receive? Now if you received it, why do you glory, as if you hadn't received it?" (1 Cor. 4:7). It is by God's design that individuals and nations should have different and distinct gifts and callings. We must respect diversity - not destroy it!

It is our Heavenly Father who directs and establishes us where we belong in His plan, whether it's in the family, Church or among the nations (Deut. 32:8). Who are we to question His wisdom or to quarrel about positions? (Isa. 45:9-10; Matt. 20:23; 1 Cor. 12:18). Jesus is the Firstborn of many brethren, the Church is the collective firstfruits of humanity, and ISRAEL IS THE FIRSTBORN OF MANY NATIONS! In fact, Isaiah 19:25 pronounces: "Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance." God has dealt with those three nations more than any others on earth. That is His choice and prerogative. But for now, God has privately tutored Israel like He commands fathers to teach their sons (Deut. 6:7).

God has never referred to any other nation as His Son! Only Israel has that honor: "Thou art my Son" (Ps. 2:7), and "When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt" (Hos. 11:1). We're the little boy that will show the way to the whole world, once God has subdued our sins, conquered our enemies and changed their bestial natures to befriend us (Micah 7:19-20; Isa. 11:6; Zech. 8:23).

We need to grow up and we will. Israel has been given a head-start in spiritual education, a special advantage, compared to others. We're not yet mature as a grown man but at least we're a child while others are still acting like animals! (Lev. 26:22; Rev. 13:18). Nevertheless, "I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light to the Gentiles; I am the LORD and my glory will I not give to another" (Isa. 42:6,8).

God will faithfully fulfill His purpose for calling physical Israel. He will finish what He's started with our nation! He won't offer that opportunity to any other! God promises, despite the demonic doctrine of replacement theology: "This people [Israel] have I formed for myself: they shall show forth my praise" (Isa. 43:21). Not Germany or Italy or Ethiopia! Do we believe God? Do we doubt He's capable of redeeming Israel? Replacement theology doesn't trust God and denies His saving power! It attempts to limit the Holy One of Israel!

God refers to future events as if they had already happened, since He knows He'll bring them to pass! (Rom. 4:17). Israel is the first nation that God has called out of spiritual Babylon, but they're only the first and not the last. God has called physical Israel to prepare them to serve as a CONVERTED NATION with but under His brilliant
Kingdom of God-Beings, just like the GLORIFIED CHURCH is destined to serve as immortal Priest-Kings, with but under Christ! (Rev. 3:21; 20:6).

ISRAEL WILL BE THE FIRST NATION TO RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT!(Ezek. 39:29; Isa. 44:3). Then we'll share our spiritual blessings with all mankind: "But ye [Israel] shall be named the Priests of the LORD: men shall call you the Ministers of our God; And [Israel's] seed [physical descendants] shall be known among the Gentiles, and their [literal] offspring among the people: all that see them shall [finally] ACKNOWLEDGE THEM, that they are the seed which the LORD hath blessed" (Isa. 61:6,9; Isa. 60:14). And at that time the tribes of Israel will acknowledge Judah for faithful service (Gen. 49:8, Zech. 8:23).

Christ will rule from Jerusalem as Israel's God-King, and yet there will also be a human prince and other mortals reigning under Him (Jer. 30:21; 33:26; Ezek. 46; Zech. 14:16). Likewise, internationally, the human nation of Israel will rule with but under the divine Kingdom-Family of God, and Zadok's physical descendants will faithfully serve in the Temple at headquarters (Ezek. 44:15).

All of the above glorifies God for his tender mercies and faithfulness to our fathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. It reveals that "with God all things are possible." It confirms that "I would not, [Gentile] brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, UNTIL the fullness of the Gentiles be come in. And so, all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: for this is my covenant with them, when I shall take away their sins; as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob), FOR THE GIFTS AND CALLING OF GOD ARE IRREVOCABLE" (Rom. 11:25-29).

Those who foolishly push replacement theology are "wise in their own conceits." They have shamefully twisted the Scriptures that refer to spiritual Jews, to spiritual Jerusalem, the spiritual Temple and spiritual Israel - that generously admits repentant Gentiles into the SPIRITUAL COMMONWEALTH OF ISRAEL - to spiritualize away God's faithful promises to physical Israel! Now that they've been admitted, they jealously want to exclude Judah and usurp Israel from their rightful place in God's plan! (Rom. 11:24). Individual Israelites may fall away, converted Gentiles grafted in, but the NATION OF ISRAEL is here to stay!

"O LORD, why have made us to stray from Your ways, and hardened our heart from Your fear? Return for Your servants' sake, the tribes of Your inheritance... We are thine: thou never barest rule over them [Gentiles]; they were not called by thy name" (Isa. 63:17-19).

Some Gentiles have forgotten that God hasn't called Israel to become spiritual Gentiles, but has called everyone to become spiritual Israelites! They've forgotten that ISRAEL IS THE HOLY ROOT to which they've become attached. Paul warned them: "Boast not against the branches. But if you boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee" (Rom. 11:18).

They forget that the Church is CONVERTED ISRAEL that embraces righteous Gentiles. They've ignored the biblical principle of DUALITY. That there's the physical and there's the spiritual, and that both have their ordained place. Satan is the one who would love to spiritualize Israel away into oblivion. He wants God to break His promises to physical Israel and let them die in a spiritual holocaust!

However, God refuses to forget His physical people Israel and His holy purpose for them! "Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee" (Isa. 49:14-15; Jer. 31:20).

We're supposed to ENCOURAGE ISRAEL TO REMEMBER THEIR ROOTS AND JUDAH HIS RESPONSIBILITY BEFORE GOD, not discourage them. Nevertheless, God remembers them and places His special protective seal upon 144,000 Israelites before the Day of the Lord (Rev. 7:4), and purposely names the 12 gates of the New Jerusalem after the 12 Tribes! (Rev. 21:12). This ought to prove that Israel remains first and foremost in God's Mind (Zech. 2:8). After all, salvation is to the Jew first and then to the Gentile (Acts 3:26; Rom. 1:16).

Paul addresses the nonsense of those who would belittle Israel by asking, "Has God cast away his people? GOD FORBID!" He goes on to show that God has always graciously preserved an ISRAELITE REMNANT, a "holy lump," even when He permitted the majority of Israel to go astray so that He could meanwhile recruit Gentiles (Rom. 11:1,5,16).

Those who preach the polluted propaganda of replacement theology would say physical Israel doesn't matter any more, but Paul clearly fought against such damnable lies! He also reminded his Gentile audience that it's the Israelites who were given everything from the holy Land Covenant to the Law (Rom. 9:4-5).

Those who preach Satan's lies against Israel had better read and believe and take warning! God says, despite Israel's horrible sins, "I WILL NOT CAST THEM AWAY, nor will I abhor them, to utterly destroy them and break My covenant with them: for I am the LORD their God. But for their sakes I will remember the covenant of their [physical] ancestors, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the nations, that I might be their God: I am the LORD" (Lev. 26:44-45).

And with physical
Israel and Judah, God promises to enter into a new or renewed covenant: "Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a NEW COVENANT with the House of Israel, and with the House of Judah" (Jer. 31:31). God also states emphatically that just as surely as the sun, moon and stars continue to shine, "If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a NATION before me forever. Thus saith the LORD: If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the LORD" (Jer. 31:35-37).

Again, God has heard the lies of those who say that He's spiritualized away His precious promises, that the TWO PHYSICAL FAMILIES OF ISRAEL AND JUDAH (and literal descendants of David and Levi) aren't important anymore, and says such blasphemers "Have despised my people, that they should be no more a NATION before them. Thus saith the LORD; If my covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth; Then will I cast away the SEED of Jacob [unconverted Israel], and David my servant, so that I will not take any of his seed to be RULERS over the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob: for I will cause their captivity to return, and have mercy on them" (Jer.33:17-26).

GOD'S WORD STANDS: Those who deny it will be history! "For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed" (Malachi 3:6). God will keep His promises to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and to their physical descendants: Israel will become His model nation, His Kingdom of Priests and His light to all nations (Lk. 1:68-75). We can bet our lives on it!

Replacement Theology Refuted!

The United States of Sodom?

Re:  Does the United States Appear in Bible Prophecy?

#106. To: SPQR (#81)

Genesis 13:13
But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.

Yes, the sins of Sodom are prevalent in these United States of America, these prophesied Lands of the Covenant (Artzot Habrit in Hebrew), this biblical inheritance of Manasseh the son of Joseph.

Christian Reprobates?

Why were Sodom and Gomorrah destroyed?

Plea to Diehard Catholics & Protestants to Repent
Having clearly seen how the practice of homosexuality is a sin (as I testify in God and the Gays), I can now see clearly how SPIRITUAL HOMOSEXUALS, the bloody Roman Catholic whore and her Protestant prostitute daughters (Rev. 17:5), prefer tradition over truth.

Two Witnesses

When you see two men in Jerusalem wearing sackcloth and performing all sorts of miracles, and yet are absolutely HATED by the world for what they're saying, you'll know they're the ones prophesied.

The Two Witnesses of Revelation 11
The Two Witnesses of Revelation 11. Who are these two prophets? What do they have to say? Why are they called the two witnesses? How will their message be proclaimed? And is there any special significance to the fact that they're headquartered in Jerusalem?

Two Witnesses to Testify in Jerusalem Against Europe
Two controversial figures, referred to in the Book of Revelation as two witnesses, two olive trees, two candlesticks and two prophets, will boldly declare GOD'S JUDGMENTS and proclaim the LORD'S CONTROVERSY (Micah 3:8; 6:1-2), delivering a BLISTERING MESSAGE and a SCORCHING CONDEMNATION -- just before NUCLEAR FIRE AND BRIMSTONE RAINS DOWN upon those who've rejected GOD'S ULTIMATUM (Isaiah 41:27; 30:27).

Beyond Babylon honors Meir Kahane

I offer credit where credit is due to Meir Kahane within Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall. If Israel had only listened to him calling upon them to remember the law of Moses and implement it as the solution to all their troubles (Malachi 4:4), especially the necessary removal of their sworn enemies, many innocent Jewish men, women, children and babies in strollers could have been spared.

It is imperative that there begins, today, a campaign among world Jewry to explain the full extent of the Arab hatred and danger. The complete truth must be told to the masses of good Jews both to justify the need to remove the Arabs and to expose the dangers of the liberal Establishment bloc.

Thoughts on Meir Kahane...
The idea that Jew-hatred was the problem of the Jew-hater and that it was the job of the Jew to "educate" the Jew-hater not to manifest that hatred - expressed in the following Talmudic dictum "he who raises his hand to bless you, bless him first; he who raises his hand to kill you, kill him first" - was truly liberating for me, who had always been taught that "good Jewish boys don't fight".

Israel's Only Way Out: Follow Kahane!
Israel must make concessions, Israel must do this, Israel must do that, while the Arabs continue to get away with mass murder and terrorism (while promising peace and feigning ignorance), aided and abetted by the international community...

The Hebrew roots of the United States and British Commonwealth

Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall is based upon the precious biblical understanding of the Hebrew roots, the Israelite origins, of the United States and British Commonwealth.

Joseph isn't Jewish!
My sojourn at Kibbutz Ramat Yohanan, where I served as a kibbutz volunteer for five months in 1982-1983, blessed me with memories to cherish a lifetime.

The English-Speaking Nations of White Israelites
Is God a racist? Does He discriminate? Did Jesus hate Gentiles? Was Paul prejudiced? Are Israelites and Jews superior to other peoples? Is God's favorite color white?

The Plain Truth about the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel
In order to warn Israel about the many prophecies that preview our coming captivity (due to our idolatry and immorality), it was first necessary for God to restore our identity. God has now restored our identity, He's again warning our nations, and it's up to us what will happen next.

Does the United States Appear in Bible Prophecy?

Small nations like Egypt, Jordan and Libya are found in Bible prophecies of the time of the end. But what about the major English-speaking countries like the United States, Britain, Canada and Australia? Are they absent from Bible prophecy, or do we just not know where to look?

...Jacob told His son Joseph that his two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, would grow to become great powers on earth, not in a tiny portion of the Middle East. Conveying to them the promises originally given to Abraham (and later expanded), he said, "Bless the lads; let my name be named upon them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth" (Genesis 48:16)...

...Jacob revealed that the descendants of Joseph would become two great peoples—brother nationalities. Those descended through his son Manasseh would become a great people, while those who would come through his other son, Ephraim, would become a group or multitude of nations (Genesis 48:19). Both would dominate the earth as no others in history.

Thus, through them would be fulfilled the earlier promise to Jacob of a nation and company of nations. But have the prophecies of Israel's global greatness been fulfilled? Yes—by two geopolitical powers on the world stage that have defined global greatness for the last two centuries.

Descended from Ephraim was the group of nations that formed out of the greatest empire the world has ever seen, the British Empire.

It ruled over five times the territory of the Roman Empire, and four times the number of people. Its territory encompassed almost a quarter of the earth's population and surface, including many of its most fertile and productive regions. Meanwhile, the Royal Navy ruled the seas. Out of this power came the British-descended countries of the Commonwealth of Nations—Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

From Manasseh came the great single nation. Its people dwelt with the Ephraimites in Great Britain until it was time for their separation through westward colonization and a war for independence—the American Revolution, by which came the formation of the United States...

"This month shall be to you the head of the months"

(Exodus 12:2)
Shevat 6, 5770/January 21, 2010

The first commandment the children of Israel receive before they depart from Egypt, is to determine the date of the new moon each month. Only then are they given the revolutionary, provocative, no-turning-back commandments concerning the slaughter and eating of the pascal lamb. Why would such a seemingly mundane act of announcing the appearance of the new moon precede so dramatic an act as the Passover offering? Was it simply for technical reasons, or can it be said that, had the children of Israel not first been empowered to declare the new moon they never would have had the spiritual wherewithal to perform the korban peach - the Passover offering? What was it about the new moon that made it an exile-breaker?

To attempt to answer this question we must first ask what is exile? Exile is being distant, even so distant that we are disconnected from the Creator of the world. On both a personal and a national level, when we find ourselves at such a distance from G-d, we find ourselves in exile. When we reconnect, we experience the geula - redemption. G-d created a vibrant world, a world which is constantly renewed, a world whose life force is being transmitted by G-d each and every moment. When an entire nation grows closed to this reality, when routine replaces renewal, and the numbness and monotony of every day being like the next, replaces the joy of being plugged into G-d's ever changing broadcast of spiritual energy, then that nation is in exile. But there is no vacuum, not even in exile, and when we exclude G-d from our consciousness, we quickly find ourselves in a state of slavery and servitude to the very routine and one dimensional reality that now surrounds us. The Egyptians weren't the cause of the Israelite bondage, they were merely the symptom.

Midrash tells us that the great majority of Bnei Yisrael - the children of Israel - refused to leave Egypt. This strikes us as astonishing. How is it possible that human beings can choose slavery over freedom? The desire for the familiar, the daily grind, the lack of challenge that comes from knowing that yesterday, today and tomorrow are all the same, regardless of my existence on this earth, creates a need, an addiction. We cling to slavery because it's all we know, it's all we dare to acknowledge.

G-d shook up everybody's reality, Hebrew and Egyptian alike, by delivering the first nine plagues. This was His way of making His presence known, even to the most obtuse and thick-skinned somnambulists of the Egyptian reality of idolatry, licentiousness and servitude. But in order to truly liberate Hs people from exile, G-d needed to do more. He needed to transform the children of Israel from idle spectators to fully active participants in the ongoing act of creation that defines our reality. And this He did by assigning to the nation of Israel the responsibility of determining the new moon. To the uninitiated outsider this may be perplexing. After all, the moon will rise regardless of whether we make note of it or not. But this is the very point itself: By taking up the awesome task of bearing witness to the renewal of the new moon, the renewal of G-d's creation, we discover ourselves on the cutting edge of G-d's revelation through the medium of time, and the constant transformation of His message to us. Only when Bnei Yisrael assumed this intimate and active partnership with G-d, did the preparation for the korban Pesach become relevant, let alone possible.

From a nation enslaved to the doldrum of routine, chained to the apathy and stagnation of the same-old same-old, G-d transformed us, blessing us with the exalted role of being His partner in the time, light and space dynamic in which we lead our lives, not merely to mark this reality, but through the fulfillment of His word, to perfect the world and ourselves along with it.

The children of Israel are leaving the spiritually suffocating exile behind, their final destination, and ours, being the ever changing, ever enlightening and ever responsive land of Israel, where the tedium of routine has no purchase, and where the Holy Temple, from which the light of renewal and redemption shines forth for all who seek a part in G-d's world, awaits us.

Temple TalkTune in to this week's Temple Talk as Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven discuss the month of Shevat, traditionally a time for renewal, rectifying sins and receiving the wisdom of the Torah. Why is the “bucket” this month’s ruling constellation, and what do Shevat, the Torah portions of Va’era and Bo, the weeks of Shovevim, Moshe’s recitation of the last book of the Torah, and the mysteries of the last of the Ten Plagues all have in common? Rabbi Richman and Yitzchak Reuven also reflect on the scope of the terrible earthquake in Haiti, Israel’s role in the rescue operations and the larger issue of human suffering and G-d’s providence.

RenewalEach Hebrew month conveys its own unique message. The theme of this month of Shevat is the concept of renewal and rebirth. The process of rebirth is inherent in the very essence of this month. It reaches its crescendo on the 15th day of the month, when we celebrate the holiday of Tu B'Shevat (lit., "the fifteenth of Shevat," occuring this year on Shabbat, January 30th). This day, called "The New Year of Trees," conveys an uplifting idea: our sages teach that on this day, a unique wave of Divine energy flows through all of creation, a forerunner of the restoration, rejuvenation and rebirth of spring. Deep within the natural world, the vital force of life begins to rise up, within each tree, within each blade of grass, preparing for renewal. To continue reading this article, please click here.

Black Day in America

Black Day in America: Obama Wins, America Loses

What nation in its right mind, after 9/11, after Osama (at least his collaboration with the powers that be on it), after our alleged war on terrorism, would elect a questionable and dark character who is pro-Muslim, raised during his influential years in Muslim countries, has attended a hateful Afro-racist congregation that preaches anti-American and anti-white sermons typical of Black Liberation Theology, is endorsed by avowed Black racists and rabid Nazi Muslims, etc. would let Barack Hussein Obama even entertain the notion of running for president for a second? It certainly appears America is under a curse and those who treacherously voted for that fraud and foreigner are helping to make Marxist Jeremiah Wright’s wish come true that God damn America. Shame!

Jeremiah Wright, Al Sharpton, Barack Obama, Louis Farrakhan, Jesse Jackson and others all represent the curse of reverse discrimination, the tail wagging the dog, the animals running the farm, the serious consequences for White Israelite disobedience to God (Deuteronomy 28:43).

We've failed to learn from history and have an illegitimate president elect; we've been deaf, dumb and blind to the two witnesses of raped Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe ruins) and besieged South Africa (that testify against our madness); and we've rejected common sense. Now we'll have hell to pay for it! God save us all!

"I will say, then, that I AM NOT NOR HAVE EVER BEEN in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the black and white races---that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with White people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the White and black races which will ever FORBID the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together, there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I, as much as any other man, am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the White race."

And These Are the Names

"And these are the names... "
(Exodus 1:1)
Tevet 28, 5770/January 14, 2010

The Book of Exodus is known in Hebrew as the book of Shemot, literally, the book of names, taken from the book's opening verse, "And these are the names (shemot) of the sons of Israel who came to Egypt; with Yaakov, each man and his household came." (Exodus 1:1) But the book of Shemot is not just the book of the names of the sons of Israel. It is also the book of the names of G-d, as made evident by the opening verses of this week's Torah reading, Va'era: "G-d spoke to Moses, and He said to him, "I am Hashem. I appeared to Avraham, to Yitzchak, and to Yaakov with [the name] Almighty G-d, but [with] My name Hashem, I did not become known to them." (ibid 6:2-3)

Now there is only one G-d, and one G-d only, but we know G-d by many names. For each name expresses a different understanding of how G-d manifests His presence in our lives and leads us in this world. When G-d introduces Himself to Moshe, employing different names, names that He never before made known, He is articulating a new relationship between Himself and the children of Israel.

Up until now, G-d had related to the patriarchs in the guise of Almighty G-d. That is, as our sages teach, the G-d of creation Who visits the righteous through the medium of His created world, and Whose Torah respects the boundaries of His created world.

But now G-d introduces Himself to Moshe, saying, "I am Hashem" and He does so to prepare Moshe for what is about to transpire. For, if up until now, G-d has played by His own rules, as it were, now, through His previously unrevealed name of Hashem, He is going to deliver the Israelites from Egyptian bondage and fulfill His promise to Avraham, to Yitzchak, and to Yaakov, with abounding, limitless love.

This endless love of Hashem for His people will overcome His own time-honored restrictions on nature, in the form of the ten plagues, the splitting of the sea, and the revelation at Sinai. This endless love of Hashem for His people will, (making use of another aspect of His will, as designated by yet another name of G-d, Elokim, who defines our reality through harshness or judgment), strike down Pharaoh and his nation. This endless love of Hashem for His people will guide the children of Israel into the land of Israel, and this endless love of Hashem for His people will shape history throughout the millennia, reaping havoc on those who would oppress Israel, and bless those who would bless Israel. This endless love of Hashem for His people is the Divine light that shines forth from Zion, the light of the Holy Temple, the light of the coming redemption.

And this brings us back to the first names mention in the book of Names - Shemot, the seventy names of Yaakov and his children. These seventy souls soon multiplied and became 600,000, and each and every one of these souls stood at Mount Sinai and there received Torah. And so it is that every soul that clings to the G-d of Israel today is a descendent of these same souls that stood at Sinai. From this we can gather two things: Our names and our souls are also mentioned in the book of Names (Exodus), and the different names of G-d that He revealed to Moshe, He reveals to each of us each and every day. It is incumbent upon us to see ourselves and discover our own names in the book of Exodus. And it is incumbent upon us to see G-d's wonders and discover His boundless love for us today.

Concerning the patriarchs, we are told: The deeds of the patriarchs are a sign to the children. That is, we are to see in the lives of Avraham, Yitzchak and Yaakov, lessons that we can apply to our lives today, and learn from. But concerning the children of Israel who are first introduced to us in the book of Exodus, this teaching is not applicable. And that is simply because we are the children of Israel, and the signs and wonders that G-d is preparing Moshe for, those miraculous manifestations of His love for Israel, these are the signs and wonders that today, and every day, are evidence of G-d's limitless love for us.

Temple TalkTune in to this week's Temple Talk as Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven discuss the Midrash's timeless lessons that shed light upon Pharoah's character and conduct, the horrific specifics of our ancestor's slavery in Egypt, and the living essence of the stories of the Torah, which are no more and no less than the magnificent stories of our as-yet-unfolding lives, and much more.

Israelis should practice apartheid - it's biblical!

Siegman: Israel = apartheid (The Nation)
In an essay in The Nation, Henry Siegman, a one-time leader of the American Jewish Congress who jumped to the think-tank world, plays the apartheid card against Israel.


The Arab-occupied dismembered parts of the Jewish homeland known as the "Palestinian" territories are Judenrein by demand and yet the world ignores such apartheid? Both the United States and Israel acquiesce to such irony (remember Ariel Sharon?) and expel Jews when Israel would do well to expel their sworn Arab enemies, as Meir Kahane courageously called for saying they must go - reminding the nation of the Law of Moses that instructs them to enforce peace through strength.

Peace Now: Arabs and Jews Must Go Their Separate Ways

Not only do self-hating Jews and Israel-bashers expose their woeful ignorance of the facts on the ground in Israel, they reveal a disturbing lack of education when it comes to apartheid as formerly practiced in South Africa before the ANC communists and terrorist Nelson Mandela were empowered to destroy the nation.

How Evil was Apartheid?
