Being a Christian

May,22 2011

THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL ANSWER TO WHAT MOST OF US BELIEVE. PRAISE BE TO GOD………..

MAY GOD BLESS YOU !

‘A person’s heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man should have to seek Him first to find them.’

When I say that ‘I am a Christian’, I am not shouting that ‘I am clean living. I’m whispering ‘I was lost, but now I’m found and forgiven.’


When I say ‘I am a Christian’ I don’t speak of this with pride.
I’m confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.


When I say ‘I am a Christian’ I’m not trying to be strong.
I’m professing that I’m weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say ‘I am a Christian’ I’m not bragging of success. I’m admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say ‘I am a Christian’ I’m not claiming to be perfect. My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say ‘I am a Christian’ I still feel the sting of pain. I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.


When I say ‘I am a Christian’ I’m not holier than thou, I’m just a simple sinner who received God’s good grace, somehow!


Today is Beautiful Christian Person’s Day
.
Pretty is as Pretty does but, Beautiful is just plain Beautiful..

If you share this with another person, you will boost that person’s self esteem, and he/she will know you care about him/her !


Be Blessed, Be a Blessing.

The table cloth

May,22 2011

Beautiful story…. makes you understand that things happen for a reason

The brand new pastor and his wife, newly assigned to their first ministry, to reopen a church in suburban Brooklyn , arrived in early October excited about their opportunities When they saw their church, it was very run down and needed much work. They set a goal to have everything done in time to have their first service on Christmas Eve.

They worked hard, repairing pews, plastering walls, painting, etc, and on December 18 were ahead of schedule and just about finished. On December 19 a terrible tempest – a driving rainstorm hit the area and lasted for two days.

On the 21st, the pastor went over to the church. His heart sank when he saw that the roof had leaked, causing a large area of plaster about 20 feet by 8 feet to fall off the front wall of the sanctuary just behind the pulpit, beginning about head high.

The pastor cleaned up the mess on the floor, and not knowing what else to do but postpone the Christmas Eve service, headed home. On the way he noticed that a local business was having a flea market type sale for charity so he stopped in. One of the items was a beautiful, handmade, ivory coloured, crocheted tablecloth with exquisite work, fine colours and a Cross embroidered right in the centre. It was just the right size to cover up the hole in the front wall. He bought it and headed back to the church.

By this time it had started to snow. An older woman running from the opposite direction was trying to catch the bus.. She missed it. The pastor invited her to wait in the warm church for the next bus 45 minutes later. She sat in a pew and paid no attention to the pastor while he got a ladder, hangers, etc., to put up the tablecloth as a wall tapestry. The pastor could hardly believe how beautiful it looked and it covered up the entire problem area.

Then he noticed the woman walking down the centre aisle. Her face was like a sheet.. "Pastor," she asked, "where did you get that tablecloth?" The pastor explained. The woman asked him to check the lower right corner to see if the initials, EBG were crocheted into it there. They were. These were the initials of the woman, and she had made this tablecloth 35 years before, in Austria.

T he woman could hardly believe it as the pastor told how he had just gotten the Tablecloth. The woman explained that before the war she and her husband were well-to-do people in Austria . When the Nazis came, she was forced to leave. Her husband was going to follow her the next week. He was captured, sent to prison and never saw her husband or her home again.

The pastor wanted to give her the tablecloth; but she made the pastor keep it for the church. The pastor insisted on driving her home, that was the least he could do.. She lived on the other side of Staten Island and was only in Brooklyn for the day for a housecleaning job.

What a wonderful service they had on Christmas Eve. The church was almost full. The music and the spirit were great. At the end of the service, the pastor and his wife greeted everyone at the door and many said that they would return. One older man, whom the pastor recognized from the neighbourhood continued to sit in one of the pews and stare, and the pastor wondered why he wasn’t leaving.

The man asked him where he got the tablecloth on the front wall because it was identical to one that his wife had made years ago when they lived in Austria before the war and how could there be two tablecloths so much alike.

He told the pastor how the Nazis came, how he forced his wife to flee for her safety and he was supposed to follow her, but he was arrested and put in a prison.. He never saw his wife or his home again all the 35 years in between.

The pastor asked him if he would allow him to take him for a little ride. They drove to Staten Island and to the same house where the pastor had taken the woman three days earlier.

He helped the man climb the three flights of stairs to the woman’s apartment, knocked on the door and he saw the greatest Christmas reunion he could ever imagine.

Today we’re celebrating, “Internet Evangelism Day,” which is simply a day to remind you to use this great tool known as the Internet to share your faith with others. The Internet was made specifically for delivering messages, and we as Christians have one of the greatest messages to deliver…our hope and faith in Jesus Christ!

So today, I’d like to give you 5 tips for how you can use the Internet to share your faith with others in a way that’s both natural and effective. Having shared my faith full-time over the Internet for the past 16 years, I’m still amazed at what God can do with our smallest of efforts. For today’s tips, I’m going to highlight some recent examples from my oldest two daughters, because they’re both extremely natural and effective at how they share their faith! (I’ll save some excellent examples from my other kids for another day!)

1) Be open. One of the best ways to share your faith is to simply be open with others about what God is doing in your life. You don’t have to share just the “big deal” things, but the little, everyday deals, too, as you see God working in your life. Here’s a simple post from my 20-year old daughter’s Facebook page a few days ago:

“If you ever want to meet people in an airport, just walk around with a guitar in hand. 😉 Haha! Love it! 😀 Another thing, never doubt God’s faithfulness and provision! He is able to do abundantly more then we can even ask or imagine, He is so good!”

She shared a simple thought from her day, along with a quote from the Bible, and even though she didn’t quote the chapter and verse (Ephesians 3:20), she shared a truth about God and a word of encouragement for her friends.

2) Be honest. You don’t always have to share just the positive things that are going on in your life. It’s OK to share the hard things, too. But as you share, remember to point people back to God and to the Bible, the Source from which you draw your hope. Here’s a post from the same daughter’s page a few days before, when she had to leave her friends at the end of the school year:

“Hardest night ever. :‘( I never want to have to say goodbye again. Why does it have to hurt so much to leave everyone you love? Tonight I am holding on to the promise that no matter where I go God is always with me and that gives me hope. Psalm 33:20-22.”

She didn’t shy away from the fact that it was a hard day, but she continued to look to God herself, which has a natural tendency to encourage others to do the same.

3) Be yourself. If God is part of your life, then share that part with others. Here’s the beginning of a post that my daughter sent out recently on her own blog, along with a picture of a young woman facing into a forest in front of her:

“This is kinda how I feel right now. On the brink of stepping into the woods of something so much bigger then me. Its dark and scary, threatening to overwhelm me and make me forget that my heavenly Father is right next to me walking me through it every step of the way.”

The blog post continues for several more paragraphs, describing her feelings, and how God has spoken into those feelings. It’s a terrific way to share what it looks like to walk with God every day. (You can read the rest of her post at: http://sapphiraadi.tumblr.com/ ).

Don’t underestimate what God can do with posts like this! I began writing a weekly devotional several years ago, sending it to family and friends and inviting others to subscribe, too. Now, after combining my list with a friend’s, we’re sending those messages out to over 35,000 people each week, including you! I’ve used a similar method over the years, simply sharing what God has been doing in my life and how those things relate to Scriptures that I’ve read.

4) Ask questions. As you share your life and your faith with others, invite them into the conversation. My 16-year-old daughter was filling out an application for a summer program that asked her a thoughtful question, so she asked it to her friends. Here’s the question:

“What character in the Bible, other than Jesus, do you enjoy or are challenged by the most? And why?”

After getting dozens of replies, she discovered that the question intrigued many other people as well. Their responses became part of their collective conversation about God, faith, and their own personal thoughts on many biblical stories.

5) Share Scriptures. There are so many quotes posted on the Internet. One of my favorite is this one: “What makes Facebook so great is the fact that you can make up absolutely random quotes and then attribute them to famous people.” – Albert Einstein (Of course, Albert Einstein was long gone before Facebook started).

But the truth is, with so many quotes out there, it’s a natural place to share the most quoted book in the world, the Bible…and so many of the truths in the Bible are so practical and helpful, people appreciate the advice. My 16-year old daughter recently posted this quote from the Apostle Paul:

“The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” -Philippians 4:5-7

She simply quoted a verse that spoke to her that day, and from the comments that she got back, it spoke to others as well. There’s great wisdom in the Bible, and God loves it when we share His words with others, for then He can speak directly to their hearts.

These are just a few ideas about sharing your faith on the Internet. I haven’t even touched on tips for YouTube, Twitter and dozens of other great technologies. I’d love to hear yours! You can post them on my Facebook page at the links below! But most of all, I just wanted to encourage you to be real with your friends. Let them see your faith in action, and let them know what God is doing in your life. As Jesus said:

“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house” (Matthew 5:14-15).

Let’s pray…

Father, thank You for this great tool called the Internet that we can use to share about you with so many people, so quickly, all over the earth. I pray that we would make the best possible use of it today, bringing hope to those we know, and even though we may not yet know! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Godspeed

There are many in the international community who suggest that most Palestinians do not harbor the desire to destroy Israel, and there are some who even defend Hamas as an organization that truly wants peace.But Gaza-based Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar at the weekend sought to set the record straight when he told supporters that the Jews must and will be expelled from the region.Zahar claimed that the Jews were historically expelled from France, Britain, Belgium, Russia and Germany "because they betrayed, stole and corrupted these countries."Only the Islamic world took in Jews, said Zahar, but insisted that now "they have no place here amongst us because of their crimes. They will soon be expelled from here."The Hamas leader urged unity between his group, which rules the Gaza Strip, and Mahmoud Abbas’ Palestinian Authority that exercises control over the so-called "West Bank." "Together, with blood, we could liberate our lands and holy sites," said Zahar. "You have tasted the bitterness of arbitrary negotiations."International figures are increasingly siding with the notion that Hamas must be part of the diplomatic equation. They do their best to ignore the fact that Hamas remains dedicated to Israel’s ultimate demise, and therefore cannot be a true peace partner. What they also ignore is the fact that Hamas was overwhelmingly voted into power by the Palestinian public.

Terrorist warning

October,27 2010

WARNING ! BEWARE OF TERRORIST GROUPS IN CHURCH.

Latest news reports are that five terrorist cell groups have been  operating in many of our churches. They have been identified as: Bin Sleepin, Bin Arguin, Bin Fightin, Bin Complainin, and Bin Missin.

Their leader, Lucifer Bin Workin, trained these groups to destroy the Body of Christ. The plan is to come into the church disguised as Christians and to work within the church to discourage, disrupt, and destroy.

However, there have been reports of a sixth group. A tiny cell known by the name Bin Prayin is actually the only effective counter-terrorism force in the church. Unlike other terrorist cells, the Bin Prayin team does not blend in with whoever and whatever comes along.

NO CHURCH IS EXEMPT!

Catholic Church: Christ nullified God’s promises to the Jews

A Catholic synod called at the Vatican to address the rising persecution of Christian in the Middle East wrapped up on Saturday with a joint statement that focused a lot of attention on demanding Israel end its “occupation” of Arab lands.

The gathering was meant to address the various acts of persecution, intimidation and discrimination that are resulting in a severe dwindling of Christian communities across the region.

But the bulk of the two-week meeting was spent discussing how Israel is the root cause of all the Middle East’s woes, including those faced by its Christians.

The final statement reflected that position. It listed the “occupation” of Arab lands, the building of Israel’s security barrier, military checkpoints, the jailing of terrorists (defined in the statement as “political prisoners”) and the general disruption of Palestinian life as some of the main reasons behind the exodus of Palestinian Christians and Muslim attacks on the Jewish state.

Cyril Salim Bustros, the Lebanon-born Greek archbishop of Our Lady of the Annunciation in Boston, Massachusetts was responsible for delivering the final statement.

In clarifying remarks, he stated that “the Holy Scriptures cannot be used to justify the return of Jews to Israel and the displacement of the Palestinians, to justify the occupation by Israel of Palestinian lands.”

He then escalated the situation by declaring that the original promises made by God to the children of Israel “were nullified by Christ. There is no longer a chosen people.”

Bustros rejected the idea of Israel as “the Jewish state,” and insisted that eventually all the so-called “Palestinian refugees” must return to the land, a sure recipe for the demographic destruction of the world’s only Jewish nation-state.

Mordechai Levi, Israel’s ambassador to the Vatican, decried Bustros’ comments and the damage they had done to strengthening ties between Israel and the Church.

The Catholic Church has for years been trying to repair its image as an institution steeped in anti-Semitism. But Bustros’ remarks make fairly clear that the Vatican remains as dedicated as ever to replacement theology – that teaching that says God has tossed aside the Jews, despite is irrevocable promises to them, and that “the Church” has instead inherited those promises.

HADRIAN’S CURSE –– THE INVENTION OF PALESTINE

by Tsafrir Ronen

The Invention of Palestine as a Psychological Weapon for Conquering Eretz Yisrael

Summary

Almost 2,000 years ago, the Roman Emperor Hadrian cursed the Jewish People and decreed that Judea should be henceforth called "Palestine" after the Philistines, an ancient enemy of Israel that had disappeared from the world’s stage more than 600 years earlier. It was his final twist of the knife and legacy after wars, massacres, persecutions, and exiles that had largely extinguished the Jewish presence from Judea.

Today, the modern enemies of a resurrected Jewish Nation have dusted off Hadrian’s curse and are attempting to pull off a monumental theft: the Arab world have reincarnated "Palestine" to steal Israel’s heritage and the Land of the Jewish People.

Hadrian’s Curse will expose the BIG lie of the "Palestinian cause" in a full-length 120-minute documentary. The film will document that there never was a "Palestinian" people, The world has become so accustomed to the "truth" of the "Palestinian" perversion of history and work backwards, exposing recent claims and acts whose absurdity and villainy shock uninformed observers.

When Arafat declared: "Our nation is the Arabic nation that stretches from the Atlantic Ocean to the Red Sea and beyond it", it turns out that Arafat’s nation already stretches over an area larger than all of Europe.

His is the twisted story of one of the biggest, most remarkable fraud in history. It is such a successful fabrication that many otherwise informed people have been duped and mislead. This propaganda has become a powerful weapon used Israel’s enemies, the Arabs, to try to conquer Eretz Yisrael without firing a shot, without an army, tanks or jets. The Jewish People eventually bested Hadrian. They returned to their land and reestablished sovereignty over it.

They rebuilt Jerusalem as their capital, and resettled desolate Judea. They did all this only to now confront the reincarnated curse of Hadrian in the guise of Arabs renaming themselves "Palestinians" and claiming all the ancient Land as their own.

As explained in the film, many Israelis and lovers of Zion have accepted this misnaming and misidentification. Hadrian’s ancient curse now threatens Israel’s very existence. Israel’s success and endurance and the world’s hope for peace in the 21st century, demands that the deceit and danger of a Palestinian state must be exposed and avoided. It is our fervent hope that Hadrian’s Curse will expose the historical truth.

Part II –– The Arabs’ Ultimate Goal

Following the Six Day War, the Arab countries, defeated by a small county determined to survive, understood that Israel would be impossible to beat militarily. They understood that the Israeli Samson would be possible to beat only by way of the cunning of the Philistine Delilah. And that’s what happened…. No longer would there be cries firing up the masses to genocide, but rather, sophistication… A melody carefully aimed at the delicate western ear. The Arabs discovered that from a propaganda standpoint, it was easier to convince world public opinion of the rights of the poor, small, deprived "Palestinian People" to its own state, than to justify the demand of the enormous Arab empire for an addition of territory from a tiny country fighting for its life.

The Palestinian People is a fabrication invented with aforethought as a psychological weapon of Arab countries defeated in battle, a "Trojan Horse" for conquering Eretz Yisrael, as Feisel Husseini said after the Oslo Accords.

So was born the worldwide propaganda campaign that turned matters on their head. The Israeli "David" against the Arab "Goliath" was transformed, by way of sophisticated propaganda, into the Israeli "Goliath" oppressing the Palestinian "David". The object of this propaganda is to blot out and forget the name and identity of the ancient, Biblical Eretz Yisrael, and to transform it into the land of "the Palestinian People" fabricated by Arab propaganda.

By such means did their false propaganda gain such a strong foothold in the media and the bastions of liberalism that no one has paid any attention to the simple truths spoken openly by Zahir Muhsein, Assad, Shukari, King Hussein or Arafat.

By means of brainwashing, fabrications, lies, falsification, and taking advantage of the world’s ignorance and the international media’s superficiality, a process has been taking place in broad daylight, for several dozen years already, of counterfeiting and blotting out history. And just as Goebbels and Hitler, the arch propagandists of the 20th century said derisively, the bigger the lie, the more people will believe in it.

Fulfilling the demands of the Palestinian lie, will put an end to the identity of Eretz Yisrael. Following the loss of the Land’s identity, will come the loss of our right to the land. For, if there are "Palestinians", that implies that there is also a land called Palestine, and if there is a Palestine… then there is no Eretz Yisrael.

The most terrible part is that large sectors of Israel, itself, have already fallen into the Arab propaganda trap. It is they who are opening the door to the Trojan horse that will destroy the identity of Eretz Yisrael. This is a war that is not being waged by means of weapons and armies, or over physical territory. It is being waged on the battlefields of awareness of the Land’s identity. The Roman name "Philistia" was a fiction invented by the Roman emperor Hadrian after the Bar Kochba Revolt in 135 C.E., a fiction of Hadrian then, and a fiction of the Arabs today, to the same degree.

It is a fabrication that represents no people, not then and not today. It is a sophisticated fiction invented for one purpose and one purpose alone: to wipe out a land’s identity. If the land is called Palestine, then the Jewish people are occupiers. If the land is called Eretz Yisrael, then the Arabs are occupiers.

This is the essence of the Arab propaganda war, which is intended to steal the identity of Eretz Yisrael and to transform it into Palestine, and by such means to turn the Jewish people into occupiers of Eretz Yisrael. That’s the whole story.

Now it’s already clear. The Palestinian identity is tactical, artificial and temporary. It is just a tool in the pan-Arab struggle against Israel. The amazing thing is that it’s all out in the open. Section 12 of the Palestinian charter summarizes the idea of this temporary identity, by stating that:

"The Palestinian people believes in Arab unification. It believes that in order to fulfill its task towards achieving this goal, it must, at this stage of its national struggle, preserve all the components of its Palestinian personality, and it must increase awareness of its existence, and reject all plans liable to weaken it or make it disappear."

Is there another people in the world that writes in its charter of self-definition the expression "at this stage"? And what will be in the next stage? Obviously, after conquering Israel, the territory will be divided up between Arab countries, and those Arab countries themselves will throw Palestine into the wastebasket of history.

As Arafat said, the Palestinian people are a fiction. The same is true regarding the Jordanian people, and all the other Arabic speaking peoples in the Middle East. These are not peoples with separate identities, but part of the great Arab nation. Only that has a true identity. By their self-definition, they cannot be divided up into a number of peoples with individual identities. Rather, they constitute one nation consisting of many states, as Arafat himself said to Arianna Palazzi in an incautious moment.

For the sophisticated Saudis, with their Saudi Peace Plan, it is clear that its purpose is not to actualize the rights of the Palestinian people to self-determination, for no such people exists. They conceal the truth that the great Arab nation has already actualized its right to self-determination by establishing a large number of countries, one of which extends over about 78% of the area of mandatory Eretz Yisrael.

For the Arabs, exploding with laughter over the foolishness of the West, it is clear that if an additional Arab state arises in the western portion of Eretz Yisrael, that will not serve the right of self-determination, but the demand of imperial conquest of all Eretz Yisrael by the Arab nation. Is George Bush dragging Israel to its destruction?

The Palestinian fabrication is exposed precisely when we listen to authentic Arab voices. The prominent Arab historian, Dr. Philip Hitti, who expressed himself at the Anglo-American commission of inquiry in the State Department building in 1947, said as follows:

"Sir, Palestine never existed throughout history. Absolutely not!"

Moreover, Professor Juhan Hazam, in his testimony before that same commission, added:

"Before 1917, when Balfour made his declaration, there had never been a Palestinian question, and there was no Palestine as a political or geographic unit."

Also a local Arab leader, Abd al-Mahdi, testified before the Peele Commission in 1937 as follows:

"There is no such land. Palestine is a term invented by the Zionists. There is no Palestine in the Bible. Our land was for hundreds of years a part of Syria."

Indeed, this is a picture of the real situation in 1918 and at the start of the British conquest of Eretz Yisrael…

Were there any trace of truth to the claim regarding the historicity of a Palestinian People, we should certainly have expected to find mention of it in the history books and encyclopedias, as well as in archaeological research.

It is our fervent hope that Hadrian’s Curse will expose the historical truth.

Part I –– The Secret All the Arabs Know

At the Annapolis Conference, George Bush spoke about his vision regarding the virtues of two nations for two peoples.

One of those peoples has a clear identity –– the Jewish People. Yet it would be interesting to know the identity of that second people: Already in 1977, one of the central spokesman of that "second people", a member of P.L.O. leadership, Zahir Muhsein, the leader of the al-Sa’iqa Organization, revealed the truth in an interview to the Dutch newspaper Trouw:

"The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct ‘Palestinian people’ to oppose Zionism for tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa. While as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan."

Are you in shock? If the Palestinian People does not exist, what does exist? Arabs who live in Eretz Yisrael and who have disguised themselves as "Palestinians" for fraudulent purposes. "Only a means for continuing our struggle against the State of Israel," in Muhsein’s words. A fraud so successful that even George Bush can be found seeking a state for that fraud!

Do you think Zahir Muhsein is alone? This transparent fraud about the so-called existence of Palestine is revealed to us by all the Arabs’ leaders:

In 1974, the late Syrian President, Hafez al-Assad, declared: "It would be fitting for us to mention to the responsible Israeli authorities that we view Palestine not just as an inseparable part of the Arab nation, but as a part of Southern Syria." In 1987, he reiterated himself at a conference in Amman, "A country named ‘Palestine’ has never existed." Jordanian King Hussein responded, "The appearance of the national Palestinian persona serves as a response to Israel’s claim that Palestine is Jewish."

Yet the prize goes to Arafat who in 1970, with candid simplicity, told the reporter Arianna Palazzi:

"The question of borders doesn’t interest us… From the Arab standpoint, we mustn’t talk about borders. Palestine is nothing but a drop in an enormous ocean. Our nation is the Arabic nation that stretches from the Atlantic Ocean to the Red Sea and beyond it….. The P.L.O. is fighting Israel in the name of Pan-Arabism. What you call "Jordan" is nothing more than Palestine."

Such revelations are an eye-opener for anyone who has not understood until today the masked-ball being run by the Arabs: The true meaning of Arafat’s words, that "Palestine is Jordan," is that for the Arabic people, living under the "Pan-Arab" umbrella, in addition to over twenty Arabic countries, there is already a country called Jordan that was established by the British for the Arabs on 77% of the Land of Israel, promised to the Jewish People by the League of Nations in 1922. Anywhere else on earth, would an additional country be established for a people that already has twenty-one countries?

All the same, there is nothing like the testimony of the founder of the P.L.O. himself, Ahmed Shukari. Already in 1956 he proclaimed from the podium of the U.N., as the Arab League’s ambassador there, that

"such a creature as Palestine does not exist at all. This land is nothing but the southern portion of Greater Syria…"

And if Ahmed Shukari says that Palestine does not exist at all, the logical inference is that "Palestinians" do not exist at all either. That same Shukari was born of a Turkish mother in Lebanon, was himself a Jordanian lawyer, served as the ambassador of Syria to the U.N., the ambassador of the Arab League to the U.N., and the ambassador of Saudi Arabia to the U.N. In 1964, after this talented actor who changed loyalties like a chameleon was fired by the Saudis, Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser hired him to found the "Palestine Liberation Organization", the P.L.O., an organization dedicated to the liberation of a country that in his own words did not exist at all.

All the prominent spokesman of that poor, homeless "people" say openly: The Arabs who live in Eretz Yisrael are precisely the same Arabs who live in Syria, Jordan or Lebanon. They are not a separate country, but a fragment of the enormous Arab nation divided amongst many Arab countries. In their identity they are Arabs and the invention of Palestine is just a transparent bluff: "a means for continuing our struggle against the State of Israel for our Arab unity". Can any testimony be better than that of the Arabs themselves, exposing the lies and deception involved in Palestine’s creation?

Yet the most compelling argument for the idea that the "Palestinian People" is a fraudulent invention, and that the Arabs are all one people, was expounded by none other than Mr. Husseini, head of the Supreme Arab Committee, to the U.N. special committee that was deliberating on Eretz Yisrael in 1947:

"An additional consideration of great importance for the Arab world is racial uniformity. The Arabs lived in a broad expanse stretching from the Mediterranean Sea to the Indian Ocean. They spoke one language, and shared a common history, tradition and aspirations. Their unity was the solid foundation for peace in one of the most central and sensitive regions in the world. For that reason, it does not make sense that the United Nations should facilitate the establishment of a foreign entity within that well-rooted unity."

Indeed, Mr. Husseini is correct. His declaration before the investigative committee of the United Nations exposes the simple fact that there is no "Palestinian" language and no unique "Palestinian" culture. The Palestinians are Arabs, and they cannot be set apart from the Jordanians, Syrians, Lebanese, Iraqis, etc.

Remove from the argument the lies and untruths and you reveal that the conflict is taking place between the Arabic, Muslim empire of twenty-one states and the Jewish People, claiming their right to their one and only historic homeland, consisting of less than one fifth of one percent of the lands under Arab control.

This is the twisted story of the biggest, most unprecedented fraud in history. It involves such a successful bluff that many people have no doubt about its veracity. This propaganda has become a powerful weapon by which means Israel’s enemies, the Arabs, are trying to conquer Eretz Yisrael without firing a shot, without an army, tanks or jets.

The feasts of the Lord

August,22 2010

The Feasts of YHWH are the Eternal’s appointed times, revealing in detail his awesome plan of salvation for mankind through Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah. They begin with Passover when he died as the Lamb of God to take way the sin of the world and end with the Feast of Tabernacles, which is the Feast of his return to Jerusalem as King of kings and Lord of lords.

A rich heritage was lost when the Christian church in the second century began to sever the connection with the Jewish people and eventually stopped celebrating the Feasts of the Lord. Jesus said to the Samaritan woman at the well, "You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews." (Jn 4:22) We are now living in times of restoration preceding the Messiah’s return. Celebrating the Biblical Feasts is part of this restoration to prepare us for his coming.

Three words are used to describe the Feasts of the Lord. They are:
moed – appointments, set time, cycle, or assembly
miqra – convocation or rehearsal
chag – feast, to move in a circle, dance, celebration, rejoicing

The Feasts of the Lord are in other words,
sacred gatherings or convocations, at
appointed, set times
when we rehearse and
celebrate God’s salvation through the Messiah,
both what he has done as well as what he will do.

All the Feasts of the Lord have their prophetic fulfillment in Jerusalem. They are rehearsals for the great Feast in Jerusalem in the kingdom of God.

"I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven." (Mt 8:11)

"On this mountain the LORD Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine — the best of meats and the finest of wines. On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign LORD will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove the disgrace of his people from all the earth. The LORD has spoken.

"In that day they will say, ‘Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is the LORD, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.’" (Isa 25:6-9)

The antichrist, "the man of lawlessness," will try to change the Lord’s appointed times. Dan 7:25 says, "He will speak against the Most High and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws." This is a direct reference to the Feasts of the Lord.

The Feasts of the Lord are altogether nine, consisting of the Sabbath plus eight annual feasts, which are divided into two groups:
the Spring Feasts and
the Fall Feasts

The Spring Feast, were all fulfilled when Yeshua came the first time. They are:
Pesach – the Feast of Passover, which falls on Nissan 14 on the Biblical calendar.
Chag haMatzot – the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Nissan 15 – 21
Bikkurim – the Feast of First Fruits. The day after the Sabbath during the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
Shavuot – the Feast of Weeks (Pentecost). 50 days after the Feast of First Fruits.

The Fall Feasts will be fulfilled when Yeshua returns. They are
Yom Teruah – the Feast of Trumpets. Tishri 1.
Yom Kippur – the Day of Atonement. Tishri 10.
Sukkot – the Feast of Tabernacles. Tishri 15 – 21
Sh’mini Atzeret – the Closing Assembly. Tishri 22

We encourage you and your family to observe and celebrate God’s set times on his calendar as they explain and declare our salvation in the Messiah and are dress rehearsals for the soon coming King!

May the Eternal bless you!

Godspeed

(Israelnationalnews.com) Ichilov hospital in Tel Aviv treats up to 100 patients a month from Gaza, and often Hamas takes the role of middleman between Gaza residents and the Israeli hospital, Ichilov Director Professor Gabi Barabash said Thursday. Barabash spoke to Deputy Minister Ayoub Kara, a resident of the Druze village of Dalyat El Carmel near Haifa, who was touring the hospital and viewing its care for foreign Arab patients.
In addition to caring for patients from Gaza, the Ichilov staff treats many citizens of foreign Arab countries, including those that have no diplomatic ties with Israel. They all receive dedicated care, and the relatives who accompany them are provided with free food and a place to stay, Barabash said.
Kara praised the hospital’s care at the end of the tour. Ichilov treats all of its patients equally, he said, but it is not the only one, and hospitals throughout the country send hundreds of people home to Gaza in good health each month after they arrived in Israel suffering from serious ailments.
He condemned Hamas for benefiting from the arrangement while giving nothing in return. “The time has come for Hamas to give us something small in return,” he said, “to release a single son of ours, who has been held for four years with no medical care, in exchange for the hundreds of people whose lives Israel saves every month.”
Kara called on Arab countries to take action: “I call on those Arab countries that are aware of how much we give them when it comes to medicine to call for Gilad Shalit’s release as well.” Shalit’s release would “make the peace talks much more meaningful,” he added.
