November 2016 - The Presidential Election
Beware America: Renaissance Or Ruination!
America is like a giant ship adrift for the last 8 years on a vast open sea, heading toward a disaster of Titanic proportions! God is sending a rescuer/captain to turn the ship around and lead it into a safe and prospering harbor, but will the voters of America, being bombarded by corruption, indecency and immorality emanating from the Clinton entourage as implemented and heightened by an anti-God press and a stop-at-nothing, criminal Democrat party, choose that captain whom God has sent to rescue this country from ruination?
Or will they choose instead the Woman of Wickedness who hides behind myriad slanderous lies and reprobate deceptions? The Lord calls her "meretricious" which is defined as "appearing attractive but having in reality no value or integrity; a faker."
Rejecting the God of all creationís merciful rescue, will the voters opt for the felonious fiend, the Biblical, "woman sitting on a scarlet beast?!" If so, they will deserve what they get!
"This Is Wickedness"
There is looming in this election a woman who fits a description found in Zechariah, "This is wickedness." (Zech. 5:8) She soared to power in 2000 in "that great city (New York City) which reigns over the kings (at the United Nations) of the earth." (Rev. 17:18)
This woman is reminiscent of Queen Jezebel who had Naboth killed because he refused to turn over his field to her husband, King Ahab, who lay sick with grief on his bed because he couldnít get his way. (1 Kings 21:1-16) This modern-day Jezebel may become president of that nation which is called in the Bible, "Mystery Babylon the Great, The Mother of Harlots and of the Abominations of the Earth."
Scripture says that she will be "drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus." (Rev. 17:6)
That great city, NYC, which was her initial stepping stone to power, which sits "on many waters," is located in the only superpower nation in the world today. A republic/democracy similar to ancient Rome, and Scripture prophesies that it will ultimately fall just like ancient Rome did due to the insurrection of the rabble populace! America, Beware!
Urgency Of The Presidential Election
The urgency of the upcoming Presidential election is of greater importance than most people can even fathom. Either God or hell will prevail!
America is so rapidly in moral decline, and this woman running for President, the highest office in the land, will finish that plunge into the darkest abyss imaginable if she is elected. Who is she? Does Scripture describe her?
The Woman On The Scarlet Beast
This Mother of Harlots/Woman on The Scarlet Beast is the same woman of wickedness whom Zechariah saw in a vision being placed into a basket and flown between earth and heaven by women with wings of storks (unclean birds). And this is very relevant to the political situation that we are facing in America right now. Let me explain.
Zechariahís Vision Of A Woman in A Basket
Who is the woman of wickedness and when will that set time be? The base on which she will be set is in the land of "Shinar," which is referring to Babylon. But when this prophecy was written by Zechariah (519 BC), Babylon had fallen and would never be restored again. (Jeremiah 50:40) It had been invaded about 20 years earlier in 539 BC by Darius the Mede. Thus Babylon was no longer Babylon, but, in fact, Medo Persia.
So then, if "Shinar" is basically Babylon but Babylon is no longer Babylon but Persia, then what is the prophet referring to? This is the mystery! He is not referring to Babylon on the Euphrates River, but Mystery Babylon the Mother of Harlots who "sits on many waters" in Rev. 17:1.
The Great Harlot Who Sits On Many Waters
What are those "many waters" on which the woman in Revelation 17:1 is sitting? They are the waters which are at the confluence of the Hudson River, the East River and the Atlantic Ocean where the Statue of Liberty was set on its base in 1886. The statue exemplifying freedom was built in France and shipped to America where it was "set there on its base" in the New York City harbor. And that Statue is symbolic of the woman of wickedness who would rise to power in New York many years later to run first for United States Senator and now for President, flown on the wings of unclean, godless women. These women had wings "like the wings of a stork," an unclean bird according to Scripture. (Leviticus 11:19)
The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob wanted to see how Americans would react when presented with the immorality and lawlessness of this Jezebelian, reprobate perpetrator of lies riding on the Black Horse (Rev. 6:5-6) of Mystery Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and of the Abominations of the Earth. Thatís what Zechariah was prophesying about thousands of years earlier; not Shinar on the Euphrates River, but Mystery Shinar on the many waters: America.
Survival or Destruction of America
This election will determine whether Godís captain or Satanís woman who rides on his beastly red coattails will lead this country into the future. Wicked strongholds have turned almost the entire main stream media against Godís Trump-et, an imperfect man, but who then is perfect except the perfect Messiah, Son of God. America finally tumbles from world leadership! This will be the headline if the woman on the scarlet beast is elected.
Renaissance Or Ruination
About two years ago, before Donald Trump entered the race for President, as I was teaching on the Woman on the Scarlet Beast, expecting her to be the next President of America, I heard the still small voice of the Lord speaking into my spirit, "Renaissance." In other words, America would be given a second chance before "the woman" in all her destructiveness would be loosed on the land.
When Donald Trump announced his plan to run for President, I knew that he was Godís candidate to bring a renewal to America. It seemed a miracle was underway.
But because ruinous powerful Satanic strongholds had made extraordinary headway in America, and Satanís political correctness had succeeded in sweeping Godís laws under the carpet of disdain, Satan was not about to easily surrender his advantage in his dumbing down of the America that so many of us had been so proud of.
And thus, when God sent a man along who would root out the corruption that had established itself through human rebellion, egged on by Satanís hordes of principalities, powers in high places and demonic forces that were anxious to dishonor God (Satanís sworn enemy), all Hell reared its ugly head and rushed to destroy him calling him every hateful name under the sun, hatching every dirty under-handed trick that they could muster up, using the main stream media, the Democratic operatives who themselves hated everything godly, decent and righteous, only too happy to unleash a slanderous campaign to cripple, destroy and bury this man that God had sent to rescue America from sudden and complete destruction.
Now that you know that this is a battle between Satan and God over the Renaissance or ruination of America and its inhabitants, you will have the information necessary to make the right choice when you go into the voting booths across this land.
Remember, you either help God to blow His Trumpet of Renaissance over America
or choose Satanís shameful sword of Ruination!

Yeshua's Split Prophecy
It has been quite a while since our last Gazette mainly because the Lord has been leading me to focus my energy on composing, writing, producing and editing our wonderful new operetta, "Esther, Sweet Esther," a critical aspect of our end-time prophetic work which will be life-giving to many who hunger and thirst for righteousness during these last days. But along came an unexpected message from heaven when I read the following verse during my prayer time:
"(1) And they (the Jewish people) will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. (2) And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled." (Luke 21:24)
"Feed my sheep! Write a Gazette!" said the Lord. So here it is! And please use it as a study guide, following along in your Bible since I am flowing rapidly without detailed explanation.
A Split Prophecy
Yeshuaís prophecy in Luke is split between two time periods. The first half of it was fulfilled in 70 AD when the Romans invaded Jerusalem, destroyed the Restoration Temple and drove the Jewish people into all the world. The second half deals with the present. These two prophetic time periods can be seen in the following verse.
"(1)And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; and the people (the Romans) of the prince (Titus) who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. (2) The end of it shall be with a flood, and till the end of the war desolations are determined." (Daniel 9:26)
The second half of Yeshuaís prophecy is still in the process of happening. Even though Jerusalem was re-captured by Israel in 1967, it is nonetheless certainly being "trampled by Gentiles" (heathen Arabs). Therefore, we must conclude that "the times of the Gentiles" are not yet fulfilled, but once they are, then comes the Millennium when the King of Kings, Messiah Yeshua, returns to establish the Throne of David, the Kingdom of God on this earth.
But until His glorious triumphant return, we must continue to do the work of His Kingdom even though floods (see 2 of Dan. 9:26 above) of ungodliness and ungodly men wreak havoc and destruction.
"The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid." (Psalm 18:4)
These are the ungodly times in which we live, when governing powers call good evil and evil good, when floods of murderous, hate-filled terrorists attempt to dominate the entire world for their demon-god, Allah, when the Gentile nations conspire to steal Jerusalem and the Land of Israel away from the Jewish people with the purpose of fulfilling Satanís ultimate scheme of preventing the return of Messiah Yeshua to His Temple Mount. Those pushing the peace process, whether they know it or not, are Satanís puppets. The end-time scenario in Daniel continues:
"Then he (the False Prophet-Pope ) shall confirm a (false peace) covenant with many (between Israel and other nations) for one week (the 7-year Tribulation Period); but in the middle of the week, he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one (the Russian Gog/Antichrist) who makes desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured out on the (Russian) desolat(or)." (Daniel 9:27)
The peace process (see Kerry/Obama) is a demonic plot that will bring destruction, not peace.
"For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape." (1 Thessalonians 5:3)
America In Scripture
Most prophecy teachers believe that America is not mentioned in the Bible. Can you imagine that the most important modern empire is not mentioned in Scripture? It is! And this is what importantly defines modern Israelís existence in the end-times.
Briefly, America is the "Black Horse" (promoter of godless democracy and Mammon), "Mystery Babylon" (promoter of immorality and abomination), the Seventh King/Kingdom and the "Eagle."
"When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, Come and see. So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine." (Rev. 6:5-6)
"And on her forehead a name was written: Mystery Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and of the Abominations of the Earth." (Rev. 17:5)
"There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come (America). And when he comes, he must continue a short time." (Rev. 17:10)
America is the seventh king(dom), born a little more than 200 years ago and presently in rapid decline.
The American Bald Eagle
"The first was like a lion, and had eagleís wings." (Daniel 7:4)
Scripturally, the "lion" speaks of ancient Babylon on the Euphrates River and the "eagleís wings" refers to America when she invaded Babylon in 2001; Mystery Babylon taking control of the direction of ancient Babylon, plucking off the wings not only of Nebuchadnezzar historically, but also of President Saddam Hussein in the epoch of the times of the "flood." And I ask you, What kind of damage is that bald Eagle doing now?
The Woman With Child
"Now a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth. And another sign appeared in heaven: Behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days." (Rev. 12:1-6)
The "woman" with child speaks of Israel (as opposed to the Mother of Harlots/America). The imagery used is that in Josephís dream. (Gen. 37:9) The Child with whom she is in labor speaks of Messiah Yeshua and the fiery red dragon, Satan, with his rebellious government (the Times of the Gentiles) 7 heads (the G7 brains) and 10 horns (Commonwealth of Independent States-CIS Nuclear brawn under the control of Putin/Gog/Antichrist - invasion of Crimea/Ukraine-Estonia/Latvia, Lithuania - See "3 ribs" in the mouth of the "little one" in Dan. 7:8)
The dragon and his world 7+10 government are in rebellion against God, against His chosen, Israel, and against His Body, the true born-again Believers. Messiah is caught up to heaven and then Israel fled into the wilderness (Ezekiel 20:35) for the final 3-1/2 years of the Tribulation Period; the 2nd half of the 70th Week of Daniel. (Dan. 9:27)
This is the Great Tribulation (Matt. 24:21) when Satan makes his most desperate attempt to commandeer Jerusalem, "the city of the great King," (Matt. 5:34) for his own throne (Isa. 14:13) through the false peace covenant (being pushed by Kerry and the Obama Administration), at the end of which time Israel is fully and finally saved as a nation. (Zechariah 12:10; 13:1-2)
The American Eagle Instrumentality
It is because of Israelís trust in America that the American Eagle has the ability to cause the woman (Israel) to act stupidly and blindly, trusting America rather than her God. And this is where Godís wisdom prevails and the Harlot flies a dumbfounded and gullible woman into a snare, a trap, an international outcast, the wilderness where God can deal with her.
"You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eaglesí wings and brought you to Myself." (Exodus 19:4)
It is there in the wilderness that she will grit her teeth as He transforms her into the woman of God that she was called to be, "the head and not the tail." (Deut. 28:13)
"But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, (America) that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ." (Rev. 12:14-17)
Now for the detective work. This Scripture confirms that Yeshuaís prophecy in Luke has to be double pronged, the first half of which was fulfilled in 70 AD and is not something yet to come.
The above verses in Revelation make it clear that Israel (the "woman") is driven by America (the "eagle") into a place where she is persona non grata among the nations (in the "wilderness").
Where, though, is this "wilderness?" It is in "her place." And where is that? Her place is the Land of Israel. It is there that God shall bring her back to Himself and to the recognition of her own Messiah that she has denied for over two thousand years. Will it be painful? Yes, indeed. Scripture makes it clear that it is for "a time and times and half a time," the last 3-1/2 years of the Tribulation Period before the Throne of David is restored by the Messiah returning to Israel, His Land.
In her Land is the only place where she is safe from the marauding serpent who is trying to ravage her and drive her into the sea. The "flood" of Islam and all ungodliness is sent against her by Satan in an effort to destroy her as the chosen of God and to take her Land for himself. But the Land (not "earth") swallows up his poisonous retribution. Yes, it is the Land of Israel, and only in that Land that God has given her, where she will be safe from Satanís intended destruction.
And, dear friends, that is why Satanís disciples, the Palestinians, during the last throes of the times of the Gentiles, with the aid of the heathen nations, including fallen America, are now attempting to wrench it from her; to leave her defenseless against Satanís diatribes.
That is how we can know with a certainty that the Jewish "Apple of His eye" (Zech. 2:8) will not "fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations" in the future; because they will be "safe" within the confines of their own Land.
So, what will Satan do in his fury, in his inability to get to the Jewish people even with his "flood" of Islam and the heathen nations? He will direct his wrath against the true remnant of Christianity, the Israel-loving, Bible believing Christians who will still be on this earth - no Rapture, a demonic misinterpretation of Scripture which will only serve to catch them off guard, and keep them unprepared because they are so confident that God will fly them away out of the troubled waters. Oh, that wily Satan and the smug, flatulent teachers filled with hot air who teach ungodly pap.
And so, we can also say with a certainty that Jerusalem is still trampled under the feet of the Gentiles. That did not come to an end in 1967 when Israel recaptured East Jerusalem including the Temple Mount where the Dome of the Rock presently stands under the control of the demonic Islamic Waqf due to a tragic faux pas of General Moshe Dayan! That is a Gentile edifice. And Jerusalem is still trampled underfoot of the heathen Arabs. It will continue to be so trampled until the Lordís feet stand on the Mount of Olives on His return (Zechariah 14:4) and then He will suddenly come to His Temple (Malachi 3:1) to re-establish the Throne of David upon which He will rule as King and minister as High Priest over all the earth.
"Yes, He shall build the Temple of the Lord. He shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule on His throne; So He shall be a priest on His throne, and the counsel of peace shall be between them both." (Zechariah 6:13)

"Trumpets, Trumpets, Trumpets!!!"
"Lend Me Your Ear!"
This Gazette may surprise you, but read on and see why there are such extreme natural disasters exploding in rapid succession day after day, each one immediately on the heels of the last, in the United States, in Haiti, Chile, China, Italy, Washington, DC, France, Spain, Portugal and Iceland.
Around the world there are blizzards, violent storms, ferocious floods, thousands killed, tsunamis, massive earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, flights canceled with mega-billions of dollars lost, thousands stranded, failing economies, events unparalleled in intensity dotting the globe like so many random attacks from aliens from Mars and getting ever worse! No one knows where or what will hit next! An advancing crescendo! We are in the throes of the end-times that Messiah Yeshua talked about. Maybe the beginning of sorrows. Maybe more!
"For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows." (Matt. 24:7-8)
On February 5, 2010, the Lord spoke to me saying, "Lend Me Your Ear!" He had something important to share. Then He gave me a vision that startled me! I saw "seven trumpets in a row side by side." Significantly, an epic blizzard, possibly the largest to ever hit Washington, DC, started to fall just at the time of this vision, and Wall Street had its worst day in nine months when the Dow dipped below 10,000. The Obama Administration has redoubled its curses against Israel and favor towards the Muslims long enough to pique Godís wrath! Gird yourself for whatís to follow as God stacks them up!
As I was pondering whether these were the actual trumpets of Revelation, I heard Him say, "Listen to Me." Then He said the word, "nascent" and I had another vision of "the ocean with roaring waves crashing up on the shore!"
The word "nascent" cleared the air that the vision represented the birthing or the start-up of the blowing of trumpets, a pattern of that which would develop and lead us into the actual fierce trumpet-events of the Book of Revelation. (8:7-9:21; 11:15-19)
The momentousness of this vision was a shock to me! Are the end-time judgments, which many arrogant Bible-deniers have speculated are complete fantasy, beginning to be unleashed? Manís lawless impudence demands it!
"Then Joseph said to Pharaoh, The dreams of Pharaoh are one; God has shown Pharaoh what He is about to do." (Genesis 41:25)
I posted my first report of the vision to our website the next day, on 2/6/10. Then on 2/8/10, I had a second vision of "a long line of trumpets cascading into view in a continuous, ongoing pattern, one after another." Why a second vision? In the words of Joseph to Pharaoh,
"And the dream was repeated to Pharaoh twice because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass." (Genesis 41:32)
A little background to show you why the living God is triggering these "trumpet judgments" at this time. It begins and ends with Godís International Foreign Policy Statement to Abraham and later to both of his sons, Isaac and Jacob, and their descendants. (Sadly, for many of those descendants, of the "Rock that begot" them they are unmindful, and thus, the hard lessons!)
"I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed." (Genesis 12:3)
The First Sword of the Lord Vision: God Growing Short of Patience
On November 1, 2000, seven days prior to President G.W. Bushís first term election to office, God showed me a vision of His glistening sharp sword pointed down toward America, the principal rider on the Black Horse of Revelation (Rev. 6:5-6), and also "MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." (Rev. 17:5)
This first sword vision signified coming judgment against America. It would prove to be Godís response to Bushís anti-Biblical policy towards Israel. When Colin Powell, then Secretary of State, was about to announce at the UN the U.S. endorsement of the creation of a state of "Palestine" on Israelís God-given Land, the fulfilment of the first sword-prophecy fell on 9/11/01 at the World Trade Center in the financial capital of the world, New York City.
Godís judgments, even those which are not to our liking, happen but "even Steven" as deserved. He judged ancient Israel twice when He allowed terrible bloodshed and the destruction of His own Temple because of the sins of His Jewish children.
In America, it was the worship of the false gods of mammon and democracy, finally triggered by oppression and persecution of Israel, His Chosen People!
The Second Sword of the Lord Vision
The second time I saw the sword of the Lord in vision was on 10/8/07, during President Bushís second term. Thus it was no great surprise to see the rise of widespread anger flash against President Bush, totally turning the tables against the entire Republican party in the 2008 election.
However, the first explicit fulfillment of the second sword judgment came on 9/29/08 the eve of Rosh Hashanah when the great 777.68 financial collapse of the Dow Jones Industrial Average happened (the second judgment against the financial capital NYC). This signified Godís plan on the drawing board for a vast financial collapse in America, just like the five Gentile kingdoms preceding America had all collapsed for the same reason: a climate of hegemony and treason against Israel.
"There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time." (Rev. 17:10)
The five Biblical world super-powers which "have fallen" are: Egypt (dominating and persecuting the Jewish people even before there was a nation of Israel), Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece; "one is:" Rome; and, "the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time:" America, in the beginning of its state of collapse only 234 years from its birth in 1776.
Godís footprints marked the event. The 777.68 stock market meltdown occurred on the eve of Rosh Hashanah, Godís feast day when the Jewish people traditionally celebrate their New Year. How much more clearly could God have spoken regarding His reasons for judging America? He always makes His motives clear for those who care to understand.
The second fulfillment of the second sword of the Lord vision was the advent of Barack Obama.
"Then I said to them, What is this high place to which you go? So its name is called Bamah to this day. Therefore say to the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord God: Are you defiling yourselves in the manner of your fathers, and committing harlotry according to their abominations?" (Ezek. 20:29)
Bamah in Hebrew means "high place," a place for pagan worship. We can begin to understand why the trumpets have begun to be blown. Why is God furious? The Judeo-Christian foundation of America is being erased from the equation and a secular ideology inserted.
The Words of Former NYC Mayor Ed Koch
Ed Koch, the former Mayor of New York City, told Fox Newsí Neil Cavuto on 4/1/10, "I have been a supporter of President Obama and went to Florida for him, urged Jews all over the country to vote for him saying that he would be just as good as John McCain on the security of Israel. I donít think itís true anymore." Koch said he believes Obama "orchestrated" the brouhaha after Israel announced plans to build 1,600 new apartments for Jews in East Jerusalem during a visit by Vice President Biden. The announcement drew sharp condemnations from Washington and calls to cancel the construction plans. "What they did is they wanted to make Israel into a pariah," Koch said. "Itís outrageous in my judgment."
The American Eagle Flies Israel Into The Wilderness
On 4/17/10, I had a vision of "an Eagle scooping the map of Israel up in its talons and flying it into the wilderness." Itís happening right now! U.S. envoy George Mitchell and his henchmen arrived in Israel Thursday 4/23/10 for a surprise visit to pressure Netanyahu, finagling to extend the construction freeze in Judea and Samaria and to freeze construction in E. Jerusalem.
The PMís latest words on the issue were, "There will be no freeze in Jerusalem. There should be no preconditions to talks." He should jettison the talks altogether!
"But the woman (Israel) was given two wings of a great eagle (America), that she might fly into the wilderness (away from the persecution by the international community of Gentile nations) to her place (the Land of Israel is the only place where she will be safe), where she is nourished (brought to faith and comforted by God) for a time and times and half a time (3-1/2 years), from the presence of the serpent (Satan)." (Rev. 12:14)
A recent WorldNetDaily report stated that the U.S. administration told the Palestinian Authority that U.S. emissaries will pressure Israel to extend the current construction freeze in Judea and Samaria, which is slated to expire in late September. A senior PA official told WND that the PA had "reached an understanding" with America according to which Israel would extend the freeze and would stop construction for Jews in Jerusalem. (Arutz Sheva, 3/23/10)
"And the dragon (Satan) was enraged with the woman (Israel), and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring (true Born-Again, Bible-believing Christians), who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Yeshua Messiah." (Rev. 12:17)
That is exactly why Satan is trying with every ounce of deception he can muster to steal the Land of Israel away from Godís chosen people... because they have relative safety there.
"A Chip On Obamaís Shoulder Against Israel"
Arutz Sheva reported on April 1, 2010, "Lt. Col. (ret.) Ralph Peters, military analyst and author of a book on Middle East politics, says Obama apparently has a chip on his shoulder against Israel Ė and itís not helpful to our civilization. Peters, who wrote ĎEndless War: Middle Eastern Islam vs. Western Civilization,í was asked to explain why he felt American-Israeli friendship appears to have been derailed so dramatically. ĎThe answer is two words,í he said. ĎPresident Obama.í
"ĎObamaís treatment of Netanyahu [during their recent meeting in Washington] was disgraceful and shameful,í Peters told Fox News. ĎWe treat our enemies with greater courtesy! In addition, it was counter-productive Ė because this vendetta on the part of the White House against Israel Ė all it does is encourage the Palestinians and their Arab backers to make ever wilder demands that Israel cannot possibly fulfill. This is not a peace process; this is something about a chip on the Presidentís shoulder.í
"ĎObamaís approach is absolutely a departure from past American policy. It all started with Obamaís Cairo speech,í Peters said, Ďwhere Obama attempted to appease radical Muslims in the Middle East, cold-shouldered Israel, and raised Palestinian expectations that heíd take care of Israel and that the Palestinians would get their revenge. Secondly, in the past, under Presidents Clinton and Bush, there were face-to-face negotiations; the Palestinians were offered one deal after another, and it was always Ė always! - the Palestinians who walked away.í Obama Refuses to Recognize the Basic Equation.
"ĎThe American animosity towards Israel is not about housing in Jerusalem or anything else,í Peters emphasized. ĎWe need to back up and get a little wide-angle picture and recognize the fundamental issue in play here: Israel wants to live in peace with its neighbors, and its neighbors want Israel destroyed. The President refuses to understand that.í
"ĎItís become a credo of the left-wing that Israel is always the oppressor,í Peters continued, Ďand that the Palestinian terrorists are freedom fighters, etc. Ö Obamaís mother was extremely left, his university chums are on the left, he spent 20 years with the Rev. Wright Ė all of their doctrines say that the Palestinians are wonderful and that the Israelis are basically Nazis... I think that the President has gotten that by osmosisÖ This is our first anti-Israeli President; itís bewildering and astonishing. Israel, for all its many faults is the only rule of law, democracy and respecter of human rights in the entire Middle East; they are part of our civilization. To turn away from Israel as we are doing is not going to help our diplomacy; it is going to hurt our civilization.í"
The Apple of Godís Eye
One act after another incriminates the Obama Administration. Here we name a few: (Most of these statements as modified were taken from Arutz Sheva-IsraelNationalNews.com "He" refers to the Obama Administration throughout.)
1) He removes Hamas from the State Department list of terrorist states.
2) He announces USA will "donate" $40 million to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) to assist the Palestinians. The UNRWA labor union selected the terrorist group, Hamas, to oversee UNRWAís Gaza facilities.
3) He re-establishes diplomatic ties with Syria, a terrorist nation and removes it from the terror list of nations.
4) He denies visas to Israeli nuclear scientists.
5) He diverts Bunker Busting bombs earmarked for Israel away from Israel, thwarting Israelís ability to effectively deal with Iranís nuclear facilities which endanger Israelís existence.
6) He virtually embargoes US arms to Israel while approving $10 billion in new arms sales to Arab states and rejects Israeli requests for advanced weapons. US government sources asserted that the refusal represents a new White House policy to link arms sale to Israel with their willingness to submit to Washingtonís demands that Israel surrender Judea and Samaria and most of Jerusalem to the American-backed Palestinian Authority.
7) He threatens to cut off the historic financial aid to Israel if Israel wonít obey!
8) He encourages Arabs to protest in parts of Israelís capital in order to pressure Israel to evacuate neighborhoods. He does not recognize Israelís claim to key parts of the capital, including much of eastern and northern Jerusalem as Israelís claim to key parts of the capital, as well as the Old City and City of David. King David established Jerusalem as his capital in 1048 BC, 3,059 years ago, calling it the City of David. (2 Sam. 5:4-9)
9) He snubbed Prime Minister Netanyahu when the Israeli leader was in Washington. According to reports, Obama excused himself from a meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu in order to have dinner with his wife -- to which the Netanyahus were not invited.
Liars in The State Department
The Zionist Organization of America wrote to Hillary Clinton asking her "to apologize to your former New York constituents (when you were their Senator) for having misled them by falsely claiming to support an undivided Jerusalem as Israelís capital."
More than 75 percent of the House of Representatives have signed a letter to Hillary Clinton expressing support for Israel and demanding an end to the highly-publicized state of tensions with Israel. Signed by 327 Representatives out of 435 (a separate letter was sent by 76 Senators), the letter calls on Clinton and the Obama Administration to settle its disputes with Israel in a non-public and friendly fashion.
The current tensions "will not advance the interests the U.S. and Israel share," the letter states, as "above all, we must remain focused on the threat posed by the Iranian nuclear weapons program to Middle East peace and stability." The letter was initiated last week by leaders of both parties, including the top Representatives of each one: Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and Eric Cantor (R-Va.)."
Prime Minister Netanyahu also recently endured a long tirade by Hillary Clinton, who chastised him for embarrassing Vice President Joe Biden by allowing the announcement of a new building plan in Jerusalem during Bidenís visit to Israel.
Hillary & Israeli Foreign Minister Spar
"The relationship of Ďgood friends agree to disagreeí took a tough test Wednesday afternoon (4/14/10) as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, with Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman standing at her side, told reporters, ĎWe want to see a stop to the settlements.í Foreign Minister Lieberman, who himself lives in the settlement of Nokdim, south of Jerusalem, did not flinch and retorted, ĎWe think that as in any place, babies are born, people get married, some pass away and we cannot accept this vision about an absolutely complete freezing of settlements.í
The confrontation escalated with the Clinton-Lieberman sparring match. Their opposing positions were not new, but their public standoff Ďappeared to be one of the most tense encounters between the sides for several years," the Financial Times of London reported.
In her remarks Wednesday, Secretary Clinton also directly rejected Liebermanís claim that Israel had reached "some understandings" with the Bush administration.
She reiterated her rejection of former President George W. Bushís written promise to former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon -- for which she herself had voted as a junior senator in 2004 -- that areas of large Jewish populations, such as Maaleh Adumin and Gush Etzion, would remain as part of Israel regardless of the establishment of a Palestinian state.
"In looking at the history of the Bush administration, there were no informal or oral enforceable agreements," she said. (Arutz Sheva 4/22/10)
Refutation By Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert
"President Barack Obama is making a big mistake by insisting that Israel freeze all building for Jews in Judea and Samaria," former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert wrote Friday in the Washington Post, considered one of the most influential American newspapers.
In his opinion article, which in effect was an open letter to President Obama, Olmert reminded the American government that Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and that its friendship with the United States is one of the countryís "greatest strategic asserts."
The former Prime Minister wrote that the Annapolis Middle East conference in November 2007 was based on previous agreements with the Bush administration that Jewish population centers in Judea and Samaria would remain part of the State of Israel in any agreement establishing a Palestinian Authority state. Olmert wrote:
"During the run-up to Annapolis and in meetings there, I elaborated to the US administration and the Palestinian leadership that Israel would continue to build in the settlements in accordance with the above criteria. Let me be clear: Without those understandings, the Annapolis process would not have taken on any form. Therefore, the focus on settlement construction now is not useful."
Trumpets Smashing Gentile Kingdoms
"You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces." (Daniel 2:34)
The angels of God will blow their trumpets, shaking "heaven and earth," initiating world disasters to break in pieces Satanís Gentile world domination.
"Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying: I will shake heaven and earth. I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms; I will destroy the strength of the Gentile kingdoms. I will overthrow the chariots and those who ride in them; The horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother." (Haggai 2:21-22)
The Kingdom of God is being built up and His Throne is coming to Jerusalem at the same time as the Gentile kingdoms of the world are struck, impoverished and destroyed through Godís supernatural destructive trumpet blasts.
The blasts will grow louder and more violent with each successive event until man finally repents or goes the way of all unrepentant flesh; the trumpets come at first as natural phenomena such as earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions and later will come as painful attacks upon arrogant humanity.
"Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth." (Daniel 2:35)
The "great mountain" is the Kingdom of God come to earth. Until that time, Satan is fighting with all manner of deceit to maintain world domination. As always, he is using hatred against Israel and the Jewish people as a catalyst for his evil work - through America (Black Horse, Rev. 6:5-6); Islam (Pale Horse, Vv.7-8); false peace (White Horse, Vv.1-2); and Russia (Red Horse, Vv.3-4)
The Jewish people are the chosen people of God and as such Satan has made them a magnet for Gentile worldwide hatred. (See Rev. 12:14 above.) But as seen in Danielís prophecy, Satan cannot win, and the Great Mountain will fill the whole earth.
Arise, Go To Nineveh, That Great City
God spoke to Jonah and said, "Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry out against it; for their wickedness has come up before Me." (Jonah 1:2) Americaís "rebellion" against Godís chosen people "is as the sin of witchcraft." (1 Samuel 15:23) But His desire is for repentance that none should perish. He says, "Return, O children of men." (Psalms 90:3)
God is sending us to New York City, the theatre capital of the world (which He calls "Nineveh") "that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth" (Rev. 17:18) to produce our three Biblical musicals that dramatize the entire plan of salvation, starting with "Mendel & Moses," to stand against the "flood of ungodliness" (Psalm 18:4) if perchance there can be some repentance and a short-lived renaissance before the end of the age.
"Blow The Trumpet In Zion!"
"Now, therefore, says the LORD, Turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning. So rend your heart, and not your garments; Return to the LORD your God, For He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness... Blow the trumpet in Zion, consecrate a fast, call a sacred assembly; Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders... Let the priests, who minister to the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar; Let them say, Spare Your people, O LORD, and do not give Your heritage to reproach, that the nations should rule over them. Why should they say among the peoples, Where is their God?" (Joel 2:12-17)
Our musicals will "blow the trumpet in Zion!" Our musicals say, "Spare Your people, O Lord!" This is a very serious assignment. He has shown me that now is the time for a breakthrough before catastrophic events on an epic scale break out. A great crescendo is at hand and we must get to work while there is still light, before deep darkness settles upon the land, before speaking the Word of God becomes a crime.
We must get these shows onto the New York stage. You have helped us before. Please help us again, for Zionís sake.

"The Stone Cut out of the Mountain Without Hands"
"And in the days of these kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold--the great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this." (Daniel 2:44-45)
The 777.68 Judgment!
For years, I have been teaching end-time prophecy. But never have I been so shocked as I was in the middle of the other night when the Lord revealed the full explanation for the 777.68 (DJIA) stock market meltdown on "Black Monday," September 29, 2008, a little over a month before the presidential elections. This meltdown occurred on Erev Rosh Hashanah, the eve of the Jewish Feast of the Lord, the first day of the 7th month of Tishri (thus 777).
So this is our first clue that what happened was related to the Jewish people and their Land, Israel. Relatively misunderstood is the fact that President Bush was the midwife for this national peril as he failed to understand repeated warnings from Heaven over many years; for instance, Hurricanes Katrina, Gustav, Ike and others that I have so often written about. But why Israel?
Godís Foreign Policy Statement
"I will bless those who bless you (the Jewish people and their Land), and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed." (Genesis 12:3)
This scripture is Godís "Foreign Policy Statement" and yet you barely ever hear about it from Christian pastors who are largely indifferent to Godís love for His chosen people whom He calls the "apple of His eye." (Zech. 2:8) This same promise was repeated to Isaac, not Ishmael, in Genesis 26:3-4, and to Jacob, not Esau, in Genesis 27:29. It is a Jewish promise and not an Arab one. The modern-day descendants of the intermarried lineage of Ishmael and Esau (Gen. 28:9) are the terrorist Riders on the Pale Horse of Rev. 6:7-8. And who can imagine a Jewish Messiah being born a descendant of Ishmael and Esau? Not possible.
But now, back to Rosh Hashanah, the Festival of the Lord which is traditionally celebrated as the Jewish New Year. Thus, when the 777.68 meltdown judgment broke forth on Erev Rosh Hashanah, the first day of the year 5769 according to the Hebrew calendar, God was speaking. But like most other times that God spoke in such obvious ways, no one noticed as they were so concerned about the economy! Never did they question the cause, just fretted about the effect on their pocketbooks. How could a capitalistic-focused nation, to the exclusion of all else, that had jettisoned the Bible, have any idea about what God was saying?
Iíll tell you what He was saying: that the death of the World Age is coming as is the death of the Church Age. Multitudes of Christian voters had voted for the candidate who stood for abortion rights, gay marriage (he touted the rights of "gays and straights" in his victory speech) and other non-biblical cause celebres which if unopposed will bring a humanistic anti-God culture to its dramatic end.
What happened to the on-fire Christians, especially in the black churches, which are noted for their well-worn knee pads? It seems they simply ignored the dictates of the Lord to:
"Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it." (Matthew 7:13-14)
"Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first..." (2 Thess. 2:3)
This election was a "falling away." As I was wondering how so many multitudes could have been induced to fall away, I heard the Lord say, "legerdemain" ("deception," "magic trick"). A vast number of His people had voted emotionally but not wisely in such a way as to allow the crumbling of the last frontier-barrier against a rapidly advancing onslaught of sin in America. The devil had pulled the rug out from under a slumbering Americaís feet and all was lost.
"Therefore, my people have gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge; their honorable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. Therefore, Sheol (Hell) has enlarged itself and opened its mouth beyond measure; their glory and their multitude and their pomp, and he who is jubilant, shall descend into it. People shall be brought down, each man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled. But the Lord of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God who is holy shall be hallowed in righteousness." (Isaiah 5:13-16)
As if to emphasize the damage that had been done, a few days after the election, those whose perverse lifestyles the Bible forbids were emboldened enough to show their rage in violent protests against the "one man, one woman" marriage victories at the polls. They were even encouraged enough by a new political environment on the horizon to celebrate their victory over Bible-believing people by crashing ongoing church services with their pandemic lifestyle. A lukewarm, declining Christian Church (Romans 11:25) had enabled this cataclysmic downfall in America which will only increase now like a snowball rolling downhill into hell.
Note the protest in Palm Springs, CA, where a 69-year old woman carrying a cross was roughed up, spat upon and cursed as the vicious mob threw her cross to the ground and trampled it. She was not intimidated! The woman, Phyllis Burgess, is an old friend of ours. She was the costume designer for our dramatic production of "Rabboni" off-Broadway in 1985. God bless her!
"Give Us Change"
When I heard the mantra of the Obama worshipers intoning their incantation, "Give us change! We want change," I was reminded of the children of Israel as they murmured against Moses, "We are sick and tired of this manna. Who will give us meat to eat?" Moses cried out to the God of heaven, and having heard back from Him, he replied to the children of Israel,
"The Lord will give you meat (change)... for a whole month, until it comes out of your nostrils and becomes loathsome to you, because you have despised the Lord who is among you, and have wept before Him, saying, Why did we ever come up out of Egypt?" (Numbers 11:20)
Connecting The 777.68 Dots
Let me attempt to connect some of these dots. I am not a numerologist, but concerning the interpretation of the 777.68 DJIA collapse on Erev Rosh Hashanah, it is fairly clear.
Daniel told King Nebuchadnezzar there would be six Gentile kingdoms that would dominate Israel and interrupt the rulership of the Throne of David, and then the seventh Kingdom, the restored Tabernacle of David, would be established and it would bring down the Gentile kingdoms of this world.
"This imageís head was of fine gold (1st, Babylon), its chest and arms of silver (2nd, Medo-Persia), its belly and thighs of bronze (3rd, Greece), its legs of iron (4th, Rome), its feet partly of iron (5th, America) and partly of clay (6th, Russia). You watched while a stone was cut out without hands (7th, Kingdom of Heaven on earth), which struck the image on its feet of iron ("777.68" meltdown) and clay, and broke them in pieces. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth." (Daniel 2:32-35)
Let us first deal with the number 7. In Genesis 2:2-3, we learn that after creating the world, God rested on the 7th day. Thus, 7 is scriptural for Godís perfect number, symbolizing "completion," or, in other words, the approaching completion of all things in Godís eternal plan. It is also time for the opening of the 7 Seals (Rev. 6:1-8), of the blowing of the 7 Trumpet Judgments (Rev. 8:1-9:11; 11:15-19) and 7 Bowl Judgments (Rev. 16:1-21) resulting in the establishment of the 7 (Father) 7 (Son) and 7 (Holy Spirit) Kingdom of God on earth with the Throne of Messiah Yeshua on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
The Times of the Gentiles Are Over
God was also saying by the numbers 777.68 that the 6 Gentile kingdoms constituting "The Times of the Gentiles" that have stretched for 2,600 years from the time that Babylon crushed the Davidic Kingdom in 586 BC, destroying Solomonís Temple and bringing the last Judean King (of the lineage of David), Zedekiah, into captivity in Babylon, are being crushed right now.
This is the basis for the number 666: "Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man." (Rev. 13:18) Thus, man who is created in the image of God (Gen. 1:26) with a body (6), soul(6) and spirit(6), would be represented by the number 666."
The Triunity of God would be represented by the number 777 [Father, Son and Holy Spirit]. Man was created on the 6th day and he attempts to destroy the earth at the 6th Trumpet/Bowl during the War of Armageddon. (Rev. 9:16; 16:16)
Thus, with the 6 in the 777.68 equation, the statement being made is that man has had his chance at trying to rule the earth during the 6 kingdoms which he governed without God, and his time is up.
The number 8 in the 777.68 signifies the coming Kingdom of God where King Messiah Yeshua returns to this earth on the 8th day to reign in Godís restored Kingdom of David. Remember that the Messiah rose from the dead on the 1st day of the new week, day 8 (John 20:1-16). It can also be seen in the First Covenant when the priests remained in their tents for 7 days where they were consecrated and on the 8th day the Lord appeared to them. (Leviticus 8:33-9:6)
The Rebirth of the Davidic Kingdom
By the number 8, God is telling us that after 2,600 years since Zedekiah was deposed, a glorious House of David is ready to be built again in place of the intervening 6 crushed Gentile kingdoms and a lukewarm, "fallen-away" Church for the soon returning Son of David. The rightful inheritor of the Davidic Dynasty is soon to return to sit on His throne in Jerusalem. That is why the Devil fights so hard to gain the Temple Mount for the Palestinians through the soon to be concluded and confirmed Middle East Peace Talks. (Daniel 9:27)
"On that day I will raise up the Tabernacle of David, which has fallen down, and repair its damages; I will raise up its ruins, and rebuild it as in the days of old; that they may possess the remnant of Edom (saved Arabs), and all the Gentiles who are called by My name (a remnant of the Church, lovers of Zion), says the Lord who does this thing." (Amos 9:11-12)
Dear Lord, those of us who love You rejoice at the re-birth of Your dynasty, the House of David! Even so, come Lord Yeshua!
"Its Name Is Called Bamah"
"Then I said to them, What is this high place to which you go? So its name is called Bamah to this day. Therefore say to the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord God: Are you defiling yourselves in the manner of your fathers, and committing harlotry according to their abominations?" (Eze. 20:29-30)
Israel had played the harlot, worshiping in the high place, literally "a place for pagan worship." God named it Bamah. (Hebrew for "high place") Isnít it amazing that the derivative of the name "Obama" would therefore be "a pagan high place." Now consider Israelís plight, to have the new American "pagan high place" driving it into the wilderness.
"Then the woman (Israel) fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days (the last 3-1/2 years of Daniel 9:27)." (Revelation 12:6)
Ezekiel identifies this forlorn place for us as a place of slander and scorn, where Israel will be an outcast from the Gentile nations, Europe, the UN, NATO, etc.
"I will bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you are scattered, with a mighty hand, with an outstretched arm, and with fury poured out. And I will bring you into the wilderness of the peoples, and there I will plead My case with you face to face." (Ezek. 20:34-35)
There, Israel will learn of its Messiah and will be saved. The Christian Zionists will be their loving handmaidens in this process. I wonder how much more will this terror be heightened when Hillary Clinton becomes Secretary of State (or the future president), and the "woman of wickedness" is set on her base in Mystery Babylon.
"And he said to me, To build a house for it in the land of Babylon; when it is ready, the basket will be set there on its base." (Zechariah 5:11; see Vv.5-11)
"We Want Change"
When myriads of people, including Christians, beg, "We want change," when instead of Godís righteousness, they choose Mammon (the economy); when 16 million African-Americans voted for Obama (how many of them were Christians?) and McCain lost by 8 million votes, it is clear that the falling away has happened and the door has been opened wide for every sort of sin and evil to proliferate. A burning California and rampaging homosexuals is a harbinger of what is coming. Distance yourself from it; at least in spirit.
The horses are out of the barn and the seals are being opened. It cannot be stopped. America, the Rider on the Black Horse, worships godless Democracy and the false god of Mammon ("Itís the economy, stupid!"). She is Mystery Babylon the Great, The Mother of Harlots and of The Abominations of The Earth, who will martyr the saints of Jesus. (Rev. 17:5-6) Rampant lawlessness and sin bear testimony to that, and scream in the face of a righteous God who has run out of patience.
The stock market continues to plummet, in spite of manís useless attempts to fix it, as this nation marches forward in disobedience to God. And Islam and Sharia Law, the same sort of evil that has paraded across the face of Europe, is the latest hazard we face as a nation.
But it is too late! The pastors who enabled this by teaching prosperity or black liberation theology to their flocks rather than sin, repentance, forgiveness, godliness and morality bear a greater responsibility.
In the Lordís body, there is neither Jew nor Gentile, male nor female, black nor white. So, when the importance of skin color rises above Biblical principles, the "falling away" has happened! I would not vote for a Jewish man that condones his partyís unrighteous platform simply because heís Jewish, and the Jewish people suffered untold horrors, far worse than slavery, and donít forget they also were slaves. But Joshua says,
"And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." (Joshua 24:15)
The fullness of the Gentiles has come in, and so all Israel shall be saved. (Rom. 11:25-26) The Church Age is ending and the Davidic Age is beginning. Just as the Church was born through pain when Stephen was stoned to death, so now Israel has a huge obstacle that must be reckoned with -- an American administration which will withdraw its support. The time of the "hunters" will bring the children of Israel back to Zion.
"For I will bring them back into their land which I gave to their fathers... I will send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks." (Jeremiah 16:15-16)
After the election, my feelings of considerable despair started to lift when the Lord began speaking to me about our musicals. We must get our shows into production in New York City, starting with the first musical in the trilogy, "Mendel & Moses." Let the Truth of the Word of God be broadcast on the New York City stage!

"Before I Formed You In The Womb, I Knew You!"
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations. Then said I: Ah, Lord God! Behold, I cannot speak, for I am a youth. But the Lord said to me: Do not say, I am a youth, for you shall go to all to whom I send you, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of their faces, for I am with you to deliver you, says the Lord. Then the Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said to me: Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out and to pull down, to destroy and to throw down, to build and to plant." (Jeremiah 1:5-10)
I recently spoke with my dear friend, Steven, who has been associated with our ministry for many years. He is a wonderful brother in the Lord, like Joshua, Aaron and Hur who stood by my side and held up my arms when we produced "Rabboni" in Los Angeles in 1981 and off-Broadway in New York City in 1985 and "Mendel & Moses" in Los Angeles in 1997.
As we prayed, Steve said, and I paraphrase to the best of my recollection, "Lord, help Jeremiah to bring his three powerful musicals around the world for Your glory. Jeremiah is a great man of God who did what no one else could have done in New York City. He is a hero. He is like an Old Testament prophet who was sent to raise up the extraordinary musical, "The Time Of Mendel's Trouble," about the end-times in the midst of the money-worshiping capital of Mammon. He did not flinch when the devil's wicked hordes tried to stop him. He was not intimidated, but he fought to victory in a raging war that Satan waged against Your servant who dared to invade this nation's perverse theatre capital, a modern day Nineveh."
"Do not be afraid of their faces!"
I took this step of faith as I did in the past with our two other award-winning musicals and for all of the works that we in our ministry have done for our 25 years of existence because, "For Zion's sake I will not hold My peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a lamp that burns." (Isaiah 62:1) Like Jeremiah, the ancient prophet of Israel, I was sent by God and could not find it in my heart to say no to Him, and when I said "I am afraid," He replied, "I am with you to deliver you." The message in the musical had a twofold purpose for America, "To root out and to pull down, to destroy and to throw down, to build and to plant."
You see, I am a Jewish believer in Yeshua and I care about the condition of America that has been such a good home to the Jewish people. And even though the message was a hard one (leavened with comedy), I knew that I had no choice but to deliver it. He made it clear that I was not to be afraid of their faces. So I started with the premise I have taught for years, that the Book of Revelation describes New York City when it says:
"Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!" (Rev. 18:2)
And, that America is the seventh king (more correctly, "kingdom") which Scripture says would continue only for a short time.
"There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time." (Rev. 17:10)
When exactly it would fall, I don't know. Thank God, the government is in on His shoulder (Isa. 9:6) and not mine. But my job was to bring the light to Jewish and Gentile souls while there was still time and to warn about coming events. So, for that purpose we were sent to that largely unsaved City that calls itself "the capital of the world" to produce our new audacious musical, the third in our trilogy. We presented "The Time of Mendel's Trouble" at the famous off-Broadway Beckett Theatre in the Broadway theatre district on 42nd Street in an Actors' Equity Showcase Production for 16 performances starting July 18th. Our last performance for this tryout run was on Saturday, August 2, 2008. Many loved it. But we caught the eye of many liberal critics from the radical media who railed at it and at us for writing it. I remembered God's words, "Do not be afraid of their faces, for I am with you to deliver you." We sure got their attention!
Prophecies Fulfilled after a Mere Few Days
"Who confirms the word of His servant, and performs the counsel of His messengers." (Isaiah 44:26 )
In our musical, one of the characters, "Vladimir Bullshatowsky," the Leader of the Emerging Russian Socialist Empire, is comedically portrayed as the Antichrist. In the Third Act, he betrays President Scarlett O'Harlett by unleashing a firestorm of missiles from L.A. all the way to New York City. When asked why, he laughs and says, "The devil made me do it!" To expose what Scripture describes as his true identity, we had him double in the role of Beelzebub, who many do not even believe actually exists.
Our last performance was on August 2nd and amazingly, the prophecies which we wrote about began to be fulfilled four days later when Russia invaded Georgia at the directive of "Czar" Vladimir Putin. We are not suggesting that he is the Antichrist, but we should be wary of a mighty ruler from Russia - "Who is able to make war with him?" (Rev. 13:4)
It seemed that every demon in New York City went stark-raving mad and our show was tarred and feathered by the God-haters among the sleaze-loving apologists who trashed our hard efforts and all of you who cared enough to help us.
"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction." (Proverbs 1:7)
What else did we do to incur their wrath? We parodied Muslim terrorists showing them to be laughable idiots at whom mostly everyone in the audience laughed. For this we were called "insensitive" because we made fun of those hate-mongers who are delighted to kill Israelis daily and thousands of Americans on 9/11/01.
Let me cite the latest example of their bloody handiwork. An article in the 9/21/08 New York Times says it all.
"ISLAMABAD, Pakistan Rescuers pulled more bodies from the shell of the truck-bombed Marriott Hotel in Pakistan's capital Sunday, pushing the death toll from one of the country's worst terrorist strikes to 53, including the Czech ambassador and two Americans."
The facts, when not examined through politically correct tinted glasses, tend to support our conclusions. And these same terrorist monsters are presently conniving to divide the Land of Israel to establish the devil's evil reign on the Temple Mount (see Isaiah 14:12-13).
Our show, using satire, revealed that the Middle East Roadmap to Peace between Israel and the Palestinians is demonically inspired. The Bible and our musical, outcasts though we may be in NYC, describe the fact that the Temple Mount is the exact place where the Jewish Messiah will reign upon His return. But thankfully, to reiterate, the government is in God's hands in spite of some misinformed and argumentative detractors.
The big opening number of the evening, with the lyrics, "NEW YORK CITY, WHO REIGNS OVER ALL THE KINGS OF THE EARTH, AT THE U.N.; ONE DAY YOUR SONG SHALL NOT BE HEARD IN YOU ANYMORE. NEW YORK CITY, THE CAPITAL, NEW YORK CITY, BIG APP-IT'LE, NEW YORK CITY, THE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD," (see Rev. 18:22) was sung by the whole 15-member cast as a monocled man in top hat and tails costumed to look like the man from the Monopoly game stood atop the set's Williamsburg Bridge and took a big bite out of a juicy red apple.
Less than two months after we closed, the prophecy about New York City began to come to pass when the bubble burst and financial disaster began nipping at the heels of "the Capital of the World." Were we happy about it? No, not at all, but our musical did dramatize a warning for which we were soundly condemned by the shrill anti-God crowds who despise His commandments, which thrills Satan and helps to push his evil work to conclusion.
One after another, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Merrill Lynch, Bear Stearns, Lehman Bros, Washington Mutual, AIG and now a $700 billion dollar buyout is being proposed by the federal government at the time of this writing; not to forget the skyrocketing cost of oil and the price of gas at the pumps and in the supermarkets and the whole world trembles... perhaps, except the drama critics who condemned us to failure. I wonder if even one of them sees the connection with what we were talking about or are they so Biblically illiterate as to fail to see the light in the midst of darkness? We say the show must go on, and it will! Or we should say shows because we are a triple threat.
In one of our hysterically funny scenes, Mrs. Scarlett O'Harlett is chosen as the Democratic Party candidate for President. Her husband, Don Juan O'Harlett, becomes the Secretary General of the United Nations. When Barack Obama became the candidate, I felt like I needed to leave the song and scene in the musical. The audience roared at the comedic take-off of Hillary.
Ahmadinejad, the modern-day Haman nut-job from Iran, daily threatens genocide against Israel and the Jews. Now he's welcomed as a guest of the United Nations. We parodied this gangster with one of our characters, "Akbar Duhnutjob," who plays one of the blundering leaders of the UN who together sing their comedy song, "In Us We Trust" (instead of trusting in God). Can you believe that we were blasted for mocking that bastion of anti-Israel bandits? Click here to see a cast photo of the U.N. Leaders http://www.jeremiahtheatricals.com/trouble.html
So many other people spoke of being enthralled at the freshness, the unusualness and the exciting comedy, drama and gorgeous music.
How Can We Stop Our Work When...
President Bush and Condaleeza Rice are racing to conclude the dangerous, misbegotten, anti-God "peace" plan called "the Road Map," to divide Israel and Jerusalem, its capital, to create a State of Palestine, before the President leaves office in January 2009. Consequently, God is bringing all of these financial woes which are like the plagues visited on ancient Egypt when "Moses and Aaron went in and said to Pharaoh, Let my people go." (Exodus 5:1)
So, on September 1, 2008, God sent a strong category 2 (1 mph below Category 3) Hurricane Gustav ripping into the Louisiana Coast at virtually the same spot where the devastating Hurricane Katrina had made landfall on 8/29/05 three years earlier, almost to the day. The earlier storm pulverized New Orleans and forced a massive emergency evacuation exactly seven days after the similar evacuation of Israeli settlers from Gaza engineered by the Bush Administration who instigated to establish a Palestinian State on Biblical Jewish lands.
President Bush and his administration apparently didn't get the fierce Katrina warning but continued to march onward with his "divide the Land of Israel policy" for his own personal legacy in stark disobedience to God's word, and God was angry. As a professed Christian, he ignored the words (does he really understand the Bible?) which Moses spoke to Pharaoh thousands of years earlier, "Let my people go." So God followed up with a second hammer blow. But Moses also says, "You turn man to destruction, and say, Return, O, children of men." (Psalm 90:3)
Eventually even the financial bubble would burst as Bush persisted, always examining the effect but never the cause; never considering the fact that these latest disasters are God's judgments. He and Rice were not fazed by Hurricane Gustav but marched onward with the ungodly plan to build a Palestinian state on Israel's Land and even insisted on the dividing of Jerusalem; and America continued to toboggan down the slick, greed-slope toward a costly, historic destruction. Similarly, the critics in New York City refused to listen to us in like manner as President Bush did not listen to all of God's warnings.
Judgment Upon Judgment
Because No One Was Listening To God
The next judgment was the 4th most major natural disaster to ever hit America, Hurricane Ike! The devastation in Galveston, Houston, and the nearby oil rigs was the result of an angry God's wrath. The same God that would tear down His own Temple in Israel twice because of the sins of His chosen people would do the same in America. Unfortunately, the innocent citizens were punished because their stubborn leader would not relent in his unprincipled march to divide the Land of Israel.
Thus, the eye of the hurricane, after smashing Galveston, continued on its way in a weakened condition to pass directly over Palestine, Texas, northeast of Galveston. Does not God always leave His footprint behind as a warning with the hope that it will bring about repentance... if the people will listen... the critics certainly didn't listen to the prophecies in our show.
These judgments were all for the same reason: Katrina for the forced evacuation of Gaza by President Bush, and, Gustav and Ike for his ongoing attempt to force the misbegotten divisive "peace" deal down Israel's throat just as Hurricane Andrew had done for the exact same reason under the senior President Bush's earlier administration. One wonders if the Bushes and Ms. Rice have forgotten so soon the 6,000,000 dead bodies upon which little Israel lay down her foundation stone?
God warned. He gave the President a chance to repent of his errant ways, but to no avail.
America must repent of its immoral 'Judas-like policy' toward Israel and stop turning its face against God by spurning His righteous ways. Thus, I would say the following:
"Better is a little with righteousness, than vast revenues without justice." (Proverbs 16:8)
President Bush sent a request to Congress for $700 billion to allow the federal government to buy up bad mortgages in a move to stem a widespread economic meltdown. The legislation is part of the largest financial bailout since the Great Depression. I have a better plan. Let this government reverse its stand for the creation of a state of Palestine and do justice for Israel.
To stem the hemorrhaging, America must reverse its policy of forcing Israel to give up portions of the precious Land which God has given to her, including Jerusalem, to the Palestinians, to whom it does not now and never belonged, to establish a dangerous terrorist state at her door. God has made His warning clear in His grant of that Land (the boundaries are identified in Numbers 34: 1-12) to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
"I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed." (Genesis 12:3; 26:3-4; and, 27:29)
Gov. Palin's Speech
Before she was dis-invited by politically correct Jewish leaders, Sarah Palin had planned to give a magnificent speech in support of Israel at the rally against Iran's Ahmadinejad. I quote portions of it here:
"We gather here today to highlight the Iranian dictator's intentions and to call for action to thwart him. He must be stopped.
"The world must awake to the threat this man poses to all of us. Ahmadinejad denies that the Holocaust ever took place. He dreams of being an agent in a "Final Solution" the elimination of the Jewish people. He has called Israel a "stinking corpse" that is "on its way to annihilation." Such talk cannot be dismissed as the ravings of a madman not when Iran just this summer tested long-range Shahab-3 missiles capable of striking Tel Aviv, not when the Iranian nuclear program is nearing completion, and not when Iran sponsors terrorists that threaten and kill innocent people around the world.
"Iran is responsible for attacks not only on Israelis, but on Jews living as far away as Argentina. Anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial are part of Iran's official ideology and murder is part of its official policy. President Ahmadinejad should be held accountable for inciting genocide, a crime under international law.
"Senator McCain has made a solemn commitment that I strongly endorse: Never again will we risk another Holocaust. And this is not a wish, a request, or a plea to Israel's enemies. This is a promise that the United States and Israel will honor against any enemy who cares to test us. It is John McCain's promise and it is my promise."
On September 25, upon meeting Shimon Peres at the Clinton Global Initiative, Gov. Palin told him, "The only flag at my office is an Israeli flag, and I want you to know and I want Israelis to know that I am a friend."
Dear Lord, bless Sarah Palin for she is a blessing to your Chosen People!
It boggles the mind that liberal Jewish Democrats would reject and scorn such a beautiful soul who openly desires to bless and support Israel just because she is a conservative.
They did the same to us when we presented our beautiful musical in support of Zion because their minds are caught in the vise of an anti-Christ darkness. However, many of the more than 600 Jewish people who received free tickets and saw the show, loved it! May the good seed planted in their hearts bring forth fruit unto salvation!
"The Time of Mendel's Trouble"
It took a lot of courage to do what we did in New York City, to not only present the Gospel, but to stand up to the intense hatred of the liberal new age critics and the anti-God politically correct hordes who tried to blacken God's eyes by humiliating His servants.
At this moment in time, keep praying for and standing with Israel. And please remember Jeremiah Ministries with your offerings. The Lord has plans to send our amazing musical outreaches into the world, and we need your help to do it!

"The Sword of the Lord Unsheathed"
On Monday, October 8, 2007, four days after the conclusion of the Feast of Sukkot (Tabernacles), as I was laying down to sleep, I asked the Lord to show me His face; instead I saw Him taking His sword from its sheath. The last time I saw His glittering sword in vision was seven years ago, seven days prior to the presidential election in the year 2000 in which George W. Bush was elected president for a first term. That time it was a warning for America to beware of its immoral "Judas policy" toward Israel. And so it is this time again! The following Scripture perfectly explains how the Lord uses His sword to deliver Israel, the "apple of His eye."
My earlier "sword vision prophecy" was fulfilled during the first term of George Bush's presidency when on 9/11/2001 the World Trade Center was demolished. It is not general knowledge that this tragedy happened "just at the break of dawn" (Psalm 43:5) on the eve of Secretary of State Colin Powell's pending announcement in the General Assembly of the United Nations stating for the first time that the national agenda of America was in support of the division of the Land of Israel to enable the creation of a State of "Palestine." And, in addition, this was the first time an American president had ever used the name "Palestine" in such a manner. President Bush had the chutzpah to spit in God's eye and in the next breath to say, "God bless America." But God wouldn't; He had promised to deliver Israel to whom He had given that Land as an eternal everlasting possession and He would do so just at the break of dawn as it were!
During President Bush's second term in office, the second fulfillment of that prophecy sprang forth. God warned and gave the president a chance to repent, but to no avail. No fair-minded God would send judgment against a country without first giving ample warnings as he did to President Bush by way of four well-placed and well-timed hurricanes in 2004 - they occurred on Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and on God's Saturday-Sabbaths. (See "A Quartet for a Quartet!" dated September 28, 2004, on our website, www.jerusalemgates.org/hear.htm) And they were all ignored. We will be happy to send this prophecy to those of you who write in and request it.
Following these warnings came the second "sword judgment" on 8/29/2005 when Hurricane Katrina forced the emergency evacuation of New Orleans, tit for tat, exactly seven days after the forced evacuation of Israeli settlers from Gaza which had been instigated by the Bush Administration's demonic appetite to establish a Palestinian State on Biblical Jewish lands.
And now God is preparing to unleash another lollapalooza against America pursuant to His 2007 renewed "sword prophecy." Apparently, President Bush has not yet learned his lesson and is rambling on with this same old "false peace" agenda. And he and his Secretary of State, who I have tongue-in-cheek renamed "Kindasleezy" Rice because of her disingenuousness toward God and His word and His people Israel, are once again toying with a "peace conference" in Annapolis, MD which they are scheduling for November or December.
But now, the stakes are even higher with the Palestinians demanding among other things Israel's Temple Mount, the site of Solomon's, Herod's and the Millennial Temples... as the capital of Satan's State of Palestine.
"During their conversation, Abbas also asked Rice to act against the expropriation of Palestinian lands by Israel in East Jerusalem (where the Temple Mount is located), against the archeological dig at the *Mugrabi Gate." [Article in Ynet News.com, 10/14/2007 entitled, "Rice: It's Time for a Palestinian State."]
* "The walkway up the hill leads to the Mughrabim Gate, which is currently the only entrance for Jews to the Temple Mount. The city plans to replace the hill with a bridge that will lead into the Mughrabim Gate. The plans are a bonanza for students of Jerusalem history, as the removal of the hill will uncover an eight-meter high gate leading into the Temple Mount. The gate, dating from the period of the Second Temple, is known as Barclay's Gate, after the 19th-century American consul who first identified it."
God is angry and rightly so since the Temple Mount is the site of Messiah's Throne upon His return to earth, and He is loosing pandemonium upon America with the force and speed of a Hialeah horse race in payment! Could the stock market crash of 1929 happen again?
It was also reported that the Secretary of State "on Wednesday lit a candle and paused for prayer at the grotto where Christians believe Jesus was born, urging the people of the Holy Land to make religion a power of healing... Rice, a devout Christian, began her day in this biblical West Bank town with a tour of the Church of Nativity, built over Jesus' traditional birth grotto. 'Being here at the birthplace of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, has been a very special and moving experience,' said Rice, the daughter and granddaughter of Presbyterian Ministers, after the tour. (He said, If you love me, keep My commandments!) 'It is also, I think, a personal reminder that the prince of peace is with us.' She said the three monotheistic religions of the Holy Land- Judaism, (True) Christianity (True) .... and Islam (Satan's bold-faced lie right out of the pit of Hell!) have an opportunity to overcome differences." (This is her New Age "enlightened" contradiction of the Bible; she rather needs the new birth.) (AP Article of 10/16/07, "Rice Prays in Bethlehem for Peace.")
By implication, what she is saying is: Believe in Jesus but disregard His Word and His love for His own Jews of Israel, of which He is the most prominent, and disregard their Land legacy from the Father in favor of the Palestinian heathen.
This stupidity is the product of the Church's replacement theology - that the Church has replaced Israel as God's chosen people. It is downright dangerous, foolish, ill-informed, and will cost many their eternal salvation; as will it cause Israel much pain and suffering in the few years that are left before His return.
The article continued, "She told an interfaith group of religious leaders (a New Age demonic concept contrary to God's word which says have no fellowship with unbelievers) earlier this week that she believes people are more likely drawn to violence if they don't have hope..."
What about the poor immigrant Jews, Irish, Italians and black people who came into America at the turn of the century and during the Great depression? Were they violent and did they kill or maim because they were poor and hungry? No!
Both of the disasters during this Bush's Administration were two of the most immense black clouds ever to darken the threshold of America. But by analogy, they both mirrored an earlier judgment upon a sinful America: The catastrophic Hurricane Andrew, which on 8/24/1992 blew away much of South Florida and transformed the rest of the area into a rubble heap.
The culprit was also the peace talks. Hurricane Andrew slammed into Florida on the very day of the reconvened Israel-Palestinian "peace talks" in Washington, DC under the newly elected liberal Yitzhak Rabin government after George H.W. Bush had succeeded in driving out Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir who refused to stop building the Jewish settlements on the Land that God had given to them. Elder Bush resultantly denied Israel $10 Billion in loan guarantees which were desperately needed to clothe, provide homes and jobs for the Russian immigrant Jews fleeing Russia after 70 years of captivity when the iron curtain finally fell in 1989.
Like father, like son: Katrina was the son's doing and Andrew, the father's. George H. W. had forced peace talks down the throat of Israel just like George W. is doing now. George H. W. was never reelected to a second term. And what will George W.'s punishment be since he is almost finished with his second term? All of these disasters were judgments loosed on America as a result of its endorsement of a Palestinian "land grab!"
This American-spearheaded, anti-Jewish "peace agenda," yearning to give the Temple Mount as part of a capitol for the Bush/Blair/Kindasleezy Rice/Vatican-engineered, parasitic, Palestinian State on Jewish Land tacitly reveals the same kind of mentality seen in G.H.W.'s Secretary of State James Baker's historic statement made not many years ago, "F... the Jews. They didn't vote for us."
"A Rosh Hashanah Warning-2007!"
In February 2006, the Lord said to me, "The Writing on the Wall," and I wrote and posted a Word of the Lord on our website dated February 25, 2006 entitled, "The Writing on The Wall in Iraq- Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin!" Immediately thereafter, a Muslim civil war broke out.
An article in The Washington Post on February 23, 2006 entitled, "Bombing Shatters Mosque in Iraq" reported, "Bombers blasted the gilded dome of one of Shiite Islam's holiest shrines into naked steel and gaping blue sky Wednesday in a provocative assault that roused tens of thousands of Iraqi Shiites into angry protests and deadly clashes... the bombing was the most destructive attack on a major shrine since the U.S. invasion."
Violence unleashed by the destruction of the golden dome of the Shiite Askariya shrine in Samarra, a predominantly Sunni city, was God's punishment. Those who had proclaimed Allah (the name of a demon) to be god were divided by His hand and a resultant near civil war exploded in Iraq (ancient Babylon) between the Shiite (fundamentally an Iranian-based sect) and the Sunnis and "divided" their Islamic kingdom creating killing fields of thousands upon thousands which has extended throughout other Middle Eastern nations, including Gaza and the West Bank (more correctly called Judea and Samaria) to this very day.
The reason I bring this up is because on 9/12/07, I again heard this word repeated as a warning to America, not to Iraq this time, but to America. It happened a few short hours before the beginning of the Biblical Feast of Trumpets, a/k/a Rosh Hashanah, which is commonly treated as the Jewish New Year (Passover is the actual Biblical Jewish New Year). "The Writing on The Wall," was the word; just like the first time, it augured badly for America. The word came on His Feast day and immediately thereafter the Master's mighty hand could be seen inscribing His warning words on the wall of the world for all to see!
"Let My People Go!"
To see the first evidence of the prophesied events which are soon to begin, let us turn now to several Associated Press news articles to show forth some of the God-breathed events which are a type and shadow of the judgments soon to come. These events occurred on 9/13/07, Rosh Hashanah, one of the highest and most sacred of the Biblical Jewish holidays. This was another evidence of His anger at those nations and people who would not "Let His Jewish people go!" (Exod. 5:1)
1) An article dated 9/13/07 (Rosh Hashanah) entitled, "Humberto sneaks up on U.S. Gulf Coast," reported, "Call it the instant hurricane. Humberto, which grew faster than any storm on record from tropical depression to full-scale hurricane, surprised the Texas-Louisiana coast early Thursday with 85-mph winds and heavy rain that knocked out power to more than 100,000 and left at least one person dead. Meteorologists were at a loss to explain the rapid, 16-hour genesis of the first hurricane to hit the U.S. since 2005. 'Before Humberto developed, you looked at the satellite imagery the day before, and there was virtually nothing there. This really spun up out of thin air, very, very quickly,' said National Hurricane Center specialist James Franklin in Miami. 'We've never had any tropical cyclone go from where Humberto was to where Humberto got.'"
2) The next article also dated 9/13/07 entitled, "Bomb Kills Iraqi Sheik Who Met With Bush," reported, "The most prominent figure in a U.S.-backed revolt of Sunni sheiks against al-Qaida in Iraq was killed Thursday by a bomb planted near his home in Anbar province, 10 days after he met with President Bush... Abdul-Sattar Abu Risha was leader of the Anbar Salvation Council, also known as the Anbar Awakening -- an alliance of clans backing the Iraqi government and U.S. forces. The death of the charismatic young sheik dealt a blow to American efforts to recruit tribal leaders to fight the terror network. The White House... called his death an 'unfortunate and outrageous act,' but said it was not a setback because other sheiks have said the killing would not deter them from working with the United States against al-Qaida. It also said it believed al-Qaida in Iraq was responsible." (Al-Qaida has at the time of this writing accepted full responsibility for the killing.)
3) An article of the same date (Rosh Hashanah) entitled, "Indonesian quakes trigger tsunami alerts," reported, "Indonesia (a Muslim stronghold) was shaken Thursday by four powerful earthquakes in less than 24 hours, and survivors described watching in horror as the ocean retreated and raced back to shore as a 10-foot-high tsunami. Hundreds of houses were destroyed in Wednesday's quake that sent panicked residents fleeing to the hills. At least 10 people were killed. The most powerful quake Thursday was one registering a magnitude of 7.8, the U.S. Geological Survey said... At least five large buildings including mosques, houses and a school collapsed..."
Where will the God of Jacob visit next with His wrath? Visit He will, and divide asunder He will, because He has said it and He always keeps His word! And there will be terrifying financial and sundry other implications in many places in the world.
God has issued a warning to President Bush and the others with their anti-Israeli mind set: "Let My people go!" (Exodus 5:1) says the Lord. His Handwriting on the Wall has made that clear! How? Simple. Hurricane Humberto rose up suddenly and struck Texas and Louisiana on Rosh Hashanah. Texas is President Bush's home state and Louisiana was the recipient of Hurricane Katrina. The President needs to know that the Jewish people, not the Muslims, are the "apple of His eye." (Zech. 2:8) He could not have been clearer about it when He said in His Word,
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert needs to stop with his dancing on the graves of dead Prime Ministers Ben Gurion and Golda Meir and other heros of Israel's epic past. He is obviously snookered by the cunningly melodious but yet odious promises of President Bush and his treacherous administration, endangering the lives and future of his own people with a fickle, nocturnal, dark peace process, an ignoble marriage to the sons of Esau, murderers at heart.
When the covenant of Middle East Peace is confirmed by the Pope, to internationalize and gain control over Jerusalem, then seven more years remain until the end of the World Age and the return of the Lord Yeshua to Jerusalem.
If Olmert does make a gift to the Muslims of the site of the first and second ancient Temples, it will be a historic betrayal of Israel and of the soon-to-return Messiah of unparalleled proportions. There will be a tragic price to pay as there was with Prime Minister Sharon who still lies in a coma because of his actions in Gaza in cahoots with the United States. (Isaiah 28:18) This horrendous boondoggle would be a death trap to Olmert and for Israel, and to the outrageous Mahmoud Abbas who just a few days ago registered a complaint with Ms. Rice that Israel is hindering the peace process by digging on the Temple Mount. Imagine the Chutzpah of all of them, of Ms. Rice for listening to it, for consulting with President Carter, a renowned anti-Semite and liar, and with President Clinton, a perjurer, and President Bush for engineering it! And because of this, pandemonium is about to break out~!
A Letter From One of Our Partners
We mailed a copy of this Gazette to about a hundred of our partners on Saturday, October 21st and received this letter back on October 27th.
The Associated Press reported in an article dated 10/26/07 entitled, "Wildfire Pollution Poses Health Threat... about 23,000 homes were still threatened by five major blazes in three counties. Although, more than a dozen fires raced across more than 503,000 acres- the equivalent of 786 square miles... At least three people- and possibly as many as seven - have been killed by flames. About 1,700 homes have been destroyed and damage estimates have surpassed $1 billion... tens of thousands of displaced families began returning to their fire-ravaged communities, but it will likely be months or even years before they recover what they left behind when they fled giant walls of flames."
Along with the letter, Betty & Clarence enclosed an offering for our ongoing ministry.
Occupy Till He Comes!
A wonderful door has opened for us to minister to a community with a large Jewish population, which we cannot discuss lest the enemy sneak in and shut it down.
But a gate must be oiled so that it can keep swinging. A car must have gas so that it can run. A bicycle chain must be greased so that it doesn't rust. A marathon runner must have water so that he can finish the race. Well, so must a ministry receive fresh drink so that it can press on to the mark of its high calling.
We are squeaking loudly because over the last month the offerings to our ministry have dried up, but the expenses continue. There are so many projects that depend upon your oil, like our three musical outreaches, the third of which must be produced before the Democratic National Convention next August 2008, the Schools of Prophecy in N. Ireland and Nigeria, my second book on end-time prophecy, and my third one that is not yet finished.
We have touched the Jewish community like never before and a whole new day of exposure of the Gospel has begun. Will you therefore ensure that it continues by your continued offerings? We are most grateful for your kindness in helping us to introduce eternal life through faith in the Jewish Messiah to those whose reward it is in return for preserving the Torah and whose ancestors first presented the Gospel to your ancestors and ultimately to you. We thank you and bless you with all our hearts.
In Messiah's Love,
Jeremiah & Wendy Ginsberg

A Well-Orchestrated Conspiracy!
A magnitude 6.8 earthquake rocked Japan Monday morning (7/16/07), killing at least seven people, injuring hundreds and causing emergency shutdowns of nuclear reactors. A long list of problems including radiation leaks, burst pipes and fires came to light at the world's largest nuclear power plant, a day after it was hit by this powerful earthquake. This one nuclear accident could potentially create a toxic cloud that could poison the earth's atmosphere.
"They raised the alert too late. I have sent stern instructions that such alerts must be raised seriously and swiftly," Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told reporters in Tokyo. "Those involved should repent of their actions."
Likewise, I intend to "raise the alert" in this Gazette. Behold, the prince of the power of the air preens himself like a peacock, a foolish fox fawning over the earth, preparing to stage his most boldfaced attempt ever to destroy the "apple of God's eye" (Israel) and to take over God's kingdom. Ignorance is the weapon which he uses against the Jewish people, their nation, and the Christian Body-at-large!
The mortal threat floating over both Israel and the Church, a virtual flashpoint, is from a toxic cloud of spiritual misinformation. This condition is as prevalent as the cloud of unbelief hanging over the Jewish people during the early 1930's in the pre-Second World War, Nazi Germany era concerning the truth of what lay ahead. No one could convince them of impending doom until from seemingly out of nowhere came Krystal Nacht and the smashing of their homes and businesses by ordinary German citizens, but by that time it was too late! This same kind of ignorance is blinding the Church and Israel at this late hour.
Lives are in danger of being lost and salvations jettisoned by the devil's illusionist doctrines. Religious and lying spirits manifest false signs and wonders, and if God's people "just keep truckin' along," tragedy will follow. Staggering numbers of Christians are frozen somewhere between downright apathy and pure deception and will lose their lives or even their salvation if something is not done!
There is a toxic cloud of misinformation, fads, crazes and "signs and wonders" counterfeiting the move of God's Spirit. Glittering gold dust and diamonds, mindless laughter and animal sounds are the mechanics which the devil uses to replace legitimate end-time teaching. Why do Christians fall into such deception with its resultant sickness, curses and demonic infestation?
A Glossy Prophecy Magazine
Yesterday, I received in the mail a high gloss professional prophecy magazine from a well-known, well-meaning Christian ministry with a love for Israel (which is always commendable) and as usual, there was their monthly selection of teaching articles about the end-times. I thumbed through the magazine, randomly selected an article on the coming of the Antichrist and was appalled at the misinformation. Not only did it spread a cloud of confusion but was virtually delusional in its ramblings and no more than fodder for the trash basket. What a waste of donations from people who were giving so generously to those who take a stand for Israel.
Too many know-nothing dilettantes, daily "jet-setting" themselves around the prophetic conferences and TV networks, are lording it over the Church as authorities. Having forged all the right appearances and connections, they possess such a lack of prophetic knowledge as to be alarming. They are playing god with the lives of millions of Christians and unbelievers around the world and will stop at nothing to gain fancy platforms and deep-pocket bank accounts for themselves. But at what cost? It is scary that Christians have such little training and understanding of end-time revelation Scriptures as to accept these mere inventions of status-seeking men as the Gospel truth.
Their endless litany of rehashed traditional prophecy teaching is an unmitigated blare of childish banter in the ears of the Lord. It is worse than having no teaching at all! Because at least the Lord can write on a blank slate but He cannot overwrite their strident error. And He will hold those promulgators of false teaching accountable!
This condition is dangerous because if not stopped, it will cause the faith of many to crumble, curses to be inherited, and the salvation of whole congregations to simply be stripped away. That's the devil's plan and it is working!
Here are some important end-time facts and resources that will help you to not be one of those who will fly away on the winds of unbelief or silly end-time teaching.
A Recipe For Disaster!
"Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said Thursday (7/26/07) he hopes to reach a peace deal with Israel within a year, after reportedly receiving a promise from President Bush to push hard to conclude a Mideast agreement before the end of his term in 2008. Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert wants to start by formulating a 'declaration of principles' with Abbas on the contours of a Palestinian state in Gaza and most of the West Bank... The Hamas takeover of Gaza has spurred a flurry of diplomatic activity, with the international community lining up behind Abbas and a West Bank-based government of moderates he has installed (a stated objective of the Bush Administration). The backlash against Hamas has also given new momentum to efforts to reach a final peace deal. (And to clean out Israel!)
"Bush has said an international peace conference would be held in the fall, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is arriving next week for more talks with the Israeli and Palestinian leaders, and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair is setting in as the international Mideast envoy. Abbas was quoted Thursday by the Israeli daily Maariv... that Bush and Rice told him they'd push hard for a final peace deal within a year... 'We hope to have a comprehensive peace with the Israelis within a year or even less than that.'" (AP 7/26/07 in an article entitled, "Abbas Hopes for Agreement with Israel.")
The Final Countdown Begins
This is the Scriptural foundation for what is going on in the Middle East. The keys words to note are, "Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week." The "he" mentioned in this Scripture is of the greatest relevance. As I have taught often, "he" is a direct descendant of the "prince" referred to in the previous verse: "And after the sixty-two weeks, Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; and the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary." (Daniel 9:26)
That prince was the Roman general, Titus, who came in 70 AD. His people destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple. Thus, the man who is to "confirm a covenant" comes from the same place and in fact is a modern-day Roman leader, a priori, the head of the Roman Catholic Church, the only Roman institution still in existence today.
For those of you who are not aware, highlights from an AP article dated 7/10/07 entitled, "Pope: Other Christians not true Churches," read,
"Pope Benedict XVI has reasserted the universal primacy of the Roman Catholic Church, approving a document released Tuesday that says Orthodox churches were defective and that other Christian churches were not true churches... (He) set off a firestorm of criticism among Protestant and other Christian denominations because it said they were not true churches but merely ecclesial communities and therefore did not have the 'means of salvation... Christ established here on earth only one church,' the document said. The other communities cannot be called 'churches in the proper sense' because they do not have apostolic succession - the ability to trace their bishops back to Christ's own apostles." Whatever happened to the doctrine of being saved through faith?
Remember: a Roman Catholic Pope will confirm the Dan. 9:27 covenant. This is important! Watch the bouncing ball!
"Blair Meets With Pope in Farewell Visit"
An Associated Press article by the above name dated 6/23/07 read in part, "The Vatican on Saturday (6/23/07) bid farewell to Tony Blair as British Prime Minister, wishing him well on what it said were his plans to work for Middle East peace and interreligious dialogue. Blair held long talks with Pope Benedict XVI, with the Vatican stop on his farewell tour fueling rumors that he plans to convert to Catholicism. The two men met privately for 25 minutes and then were joined for further talks by English Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor...The statement, issued after the talks with Benedict and a separate meeting with Secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, said there was a 'frank' assessment of the international situation, including such delicate themes as the Middle East conflict and the future of the European Union...The statement said that best wishes were expressed for Blair's future, saying that he has expressed the desire 'to dedicate himself in a particular way for peace in the Middle East and for interreligious dialogue.' Earlier this week, it was suggested that President Bush, a close ally, wants Blair to take the job of Middle East envoy for the Quartet of peacemakers... Blair's wife Cherie is Roman Catholic, the couple's children have attended Catholic schools and Blair habitually attends Catholic rather than Anglican services."
An article in the International Herald Tribune dated 6/23/07 entitled "Blair will meet Pope to prepare for Catholic conversion, reports say," it was reported, "Speculation about Blair's religious intentions heated up last month when The Times of London reported that Father Michael Seed, who has led other prominent people into the Catholic Church, told friends at a recent memorial service that he expected Blair to formally declare his allegiance to the church after he steps down Wednesday."
"Tony Blair Accepts Appointment as Middle East Peace Envoy"
Blair resigned as Prime Minister of Britain on Wednesday, June 27th. Fox News reported in an article by the above name that on the same day, "The United Nations, United States, European Union and Russia announced" his "appointment" "as their representative to promote peace between Israel and the Palestinians. A statement from the so-called Quartet of international mediators said the former British prime minister will seek to mobilize international assistance to the Palestinians and develop plans to promote Palestinian economic development. Blair will also seek international support to address the needs of Palestinian government institutions..."
"Bush Announces Mideast Peace Conference"
In an AP article dated 7/16/07, of the above name, President Bush spearheaded and championed the cause of Daniel's seven-year covenant. The article began, "President Bush on Monday announced an international conference this fall to include Israel, the Palestinian authority and some of their Arab neighbors to help restart Mideast peace talks and review progress in building democratic institutions."
The Mideast peace conference refers to the "covenant" that Daniel was prophesying about.
Daniel's Covenant "with Many"
"He said that Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice would preside over the session. Bush said the conference would include representatives from Israel, the Palestinians 'and their neighbors in the region' and said participants would include just those governments that support creation of a Palestinian State."
The devil likes big numbers. He enjoys having not just a modicum of participation in his counterfeit agendas, but loves and whips up a flood of passionate involvement in his evil activities. Thus, President Bush was pressed to include the numerous "neighbors in the region" in connection with the devil's Mideast Peace Agreement which the Quartet calls the "Roadmap."
The point is that Daniel's prophecy said that the covenant would be made "with many." God knew this thousands of years ago and included those words, "with many," in the prophecy so that when it happened, we would understand that it was happening.
Pity the poor president for his ignorance of the trigger-hammer that he had squeezed which would actually mandate, perhaps at a snail's pace, perhaps at the speed of an antelope, only moment by moment would we know, horrific repercussions against him and the country he presides over. The God of Israel in fulfillment of Genesis 12:3 to bless those that bless Israel and curse him who curses her would Himself do it. Mr. Bush is the first American president who supports the creation of a state of "Palestine" on Israel's Land, in defiance of God's word.
"(Bush) noted that the U.S. has pledged more than $190 million in direct assistance to the Palestinians, most of it already approved and that the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, a quasi-governmental unit, was making another $228 million available in loan guarantees. Administration officials said that Bush would await recommendations from former Prime Minister Tony Blair before deciding whether asking Congress for more."
A Marathon of Israel Compromises Begins
On July 1, Israel transferred $119 million in Palestinian tax revenues to the office of the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, as part of a plan to bolster him. And again on July 20, as another good will gesture to show their support of the Blair/Bush initiative to aid the splinter government (from Hamas in Gaza) of Mahmoud Abbas, Israel freed 250 Palestinian Prisoners. And Cp. Gilad Shalit the Israeli soldier captured a year ago by terrorists as well the two Israeli soldiers abducted into Lebanon are still prisoners.
And Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad had the audacity to say, "Israel needs to do more to improve the atmosphere. Your policy is a policy of small change. You do a little here, a little there," he told the Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot." And who is this Mahmoud Abbas that the Blair/Bush team is an advocate for? My friend, Jerry Golden from Israel, in his report says it well.
"(The) so-called moderate terrorist 'Abu Mazen' (Mahmoud Abbas) graduated from Moscow University by writing his dissertation for his PhD on Holocaust Denial. Since 1993 he was the brains behind the PLO and Hamas terrorism. He has said on numerous occasions that the goals of Fatah and Hamas are the same, they simply have different ways of destroying Israel, his is by phases and Hamas is by terrorism.
"Abu Mazen was Arafat's right hand man, and was directly responsible for handling the finances for the 1972 Munich massacre where 11 Israelis were murdered by his PLO. Yet we now have an Israeli Prime Minister willing to forget even that. His Fatah Organization, the head of terrorist organizations like Aksa Martyrs Brigades and others, has killed more Israelis than Hamas. All the incitement in the PA schools that teach all the 'Palestinian' children to prepare to be suicide bombers is approved and designed by him." (The Golden Report, "Bush Did It Again." 7/17/07)
The 9th of Av
On Monday, July 23rd (Erev, the eve of, the 9th of Av according to the Hebrew Calendar which is the date when both the 1st and 2nd Temples were destroyed in antiquity) "former British Prime Minister Tony Blair kicked off his first visit to the Middle East as the international community's new envoy to the region hoping to add new momentum to fledgling peace efforts between Israel and the Palestinians." (AP 7/23/07)
And on the very day that Blair arrived in Israel, "Emergency workers rescued hundreds of trapped people Monday as water swallowed swaths of central England in the worst flooding to hit the country for 60 years... some rivers were still rising, with the western section of the rain-swollen River Thames on the verge of bursting its banks. Roads and parking lots were submerged, trains suspended, buses cancelled. Hundreds of thousands of people were without electricity or drinking water, and farmers saw their summer crops destroyed. Torrential rains have plagued Britain over the past month - nearly 5 inches fell in some areas on Friday alone - and more downpours were predicted this week." (AP 7/23/07)
Arab League Delegation Visits Israel
Just after Blair's visit, on Wednesday, July 25th, "The foreign ministers of Egypt and Jordan, began a historic visit to Israel on Wednesday to formally present an Arab peace plan.. (Does this not seem like a well-orchestrated conspiracy against Israel?!) The ministers arrived as representatives of the Arab league, the first time the 22-member group has sent a delegation to the Jewish State... The visit, which came a day after former British Prime Minister Tony Blair made his first trip as new Mideast peace envoy, is part of a flurry of diplomatic efforts meant to restart peace talks after a seven-year lull... The Arab League asked Jordan and Egypt to take the lead in pushing forward their newly revived peace plan, which offers a comprehensive peace agreement in exchange for Israel's withdrawal from all territories captured in 1967." (AP 7/25/07)
What a joke! An Arab League "delegation?" The Arabs give nothing but talk and demand Israel's action! The truth is, representatives from Jordan and Egypt have visited Israel many times before and have both entered into their own peace accords with Israel. If the Arab League (all of whose members have spewed out hatred against Israel) were really interested in making a reconciliation and asking so much in return, they would have gotten off of their high horses and made a reasonable gesture by coming hat in hand as a group instead of sending the same old cronies to make peace for them. And still, these are the "many" that Daniel spoke of. Israel with her same old "victim mentality" is grateful for the crumbs and grasps at straws again to have a friend or two!
I'm talking about a well orchestrated conspiracy here. It is well known that Tony Blair and George Bush are good friends who were virtually umbilical-corded together in the war in Iraq. At the same time on another front, in a fancy dance step, Blair was leading and Bush was following. Neither were paying attention to the God of the Hebrew's promise to bless those who bless Israel and to curse him who curses her. (Genesis 12:3) What were they thinking when they began to "stack the deck" in a conspiracy against the sons of Jacob, siding with the sons of Esau whom God had declared He hated? (Mal. 1: 2-3; Rom. 9:13)
Flying on the heels of Blair's success as a peacemaker in Northern Ireland (which did not require Northern Ireland to give away their land) these two leaders cottoned to the covetousness of the sons of Esau and conspired to do to the sons of Jacob what even Pharaoh would not have dared to do: they conspired to forge a worldwide Middle East "peace" movement which would give the sons of Esau one of the last remaining slices of Israel's Land.
What they didn't know was that their feet were tangled in an alluring web of enchantment which in reality was a subtly disguised anti-Semitic plot of Satan to gain control over God. (Isa. 14:13) Blair and Bush were working out Satan's agenda forbidding any further Jewish settlements and advocating the removal of the Jewish people from their own heartlands that God had given them. And Israel themselves, like passengers on the Titanic, saw nothing of the dangerous underbelly of that lethal iceberg laying directly in front of them upon which they would be sent to their freezing deaths below (were it not for the unbreakable promises of their God to them).
The Bottom Line!
Point of Impact! The Blair/Bush stealth attack has lifted Tony Blair into the position of Rome's front man to confirm Daniel's covenant and thereby gain control for the Vatican, the Muslims, "the many," and Satan by internationalizing Jerusalem and the Temple Mount, and wrenching control of Jacob's Land away from her rightful owners.
This is what God instructed me to say to America, Russia, the European Union, the UN, the Vatican, the Palestinians and the Arab League, the leaders of Israel and to those nations and persons who invest their time, energy and wealth in such an anti-God scheme as to divide the Land that the Rock of Ages gave once and for all to His people Israel:
Our prayers are with each and every one of you whom we love and appreciate more than words can tell. May the Lord God of Israel, Yeshua HaMashiach, give you wisdom and understanding, may He grant you the desires of your hearts, and prosper you in all your ways.

The Writing On The Wall
A Cartoon Controversy
It all began with a huge controversy that was going on throughout the Muslim world for the last several months. The Jyllands-Posten newspaper in Denmark had published cartoons on September 30, 2005 that Muslims called offensive.
One cartoon showed Mohammed wearing a headdress in the shape of a bomb, and another showed an imam in Paradise telling the suicide bombers to stop because they are running out of virgins.
Muslims around the world were outraged! They demanded apologies and retractions and even called for revenge and executions of the Danish artists, insisting that no one be allowed to publish a cartoon or statement that makes fun of Mohammed or Islam, saying it is an offense to freedom of religion. (Look at this, the devil is indignant!)
These are the same Muslims who have a history of proliferating their scathing anti-Semitic cartoons depicting Jews as "Pigs," or as sleazy characters with hooked noses, who urinate on Jewish gravestones, vomit out their lies denying the Holocaust, and plaster swastikas everywhere.
Such as these demonstrated in the streets from Pakistan to Indonesia, Nigeria to Libya and Iraq, Saudi Arabia to Kuwait, to Syria, to Turkey and Iran and, and... Even the Palestinians went wild, rampaging through the streets and attacking the EU offices.
The Danish Prime Minister defended the newspaper's right of free speech to publish the cartoons. Newspapers in at least 50 other countries, including Norway, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Hungary and Spain have also published the cartoons to show solidarity with the Danish paper and to emphasize their right of free speech. The United States stood in solidarity with Denmark supporting freedom of the press.
The Pakistani parliament passed a resolution condemning the cartoons. Saudi Arabia and Iran withdrew their ambassadors from Denmark. The Danish paper received continual bomb threats. Palestinians searched homes looking for Danes and other western Europeans to kidnap. Western reporters and aid workers fled the Palestinian territories for fear of their lives. Angry mobs in Damascus and Beirut torched the Danish Embassies in violent protests. An enraged mob of 50,000 in Sudan called for Al Qaeda terrorists to attack Denmark.
Muslims boycotted Danish products, throwing them off the shelves. The Danish food company, Arla, lost over $1 million a day in the Middle East. Protestors carried signs telling their governments to Not Sell Oil To Denmark. Iran reviewed its trade ties with countries that printed the cartoons, and severed trade with Denmark.
The Egyptian ambassador met with Prime Minister Rasmussen of Denmark and told him he should do more to "appease the whole Muslim world." We must never forget what happened when cowardly nations appeased Hitler's outrageous demands and agenda.
We love the Danes and so does God! When Hitler invaded Denmark and required all the Jews to wear the yellow Star of David armband, the King of Denmark also wore a yellow Star of David prominently displayed on his arm to show solidarity with the Jewish people.
God's Burgeoning Vendetta Against Islam!
Leaders of the Iranian-funded terrorist group, Hamas, met Monday, February 6th, in Cairo for talks with the Egyptians on a new Palestinian government.
While we do not rejoice by any means over the deaths of more than 1,000 passengers on an Egyptian ferry that departed from Saudi Arabia, caught fire and capsized in the Red Sea on 2/3/06, we do think it important, however, to note for the record the Scripture from the Torah Portion (Exodus 13:17-17:16) that was read in synagogues around the world on Saturday, 2/11/06, 7 days after that disaster:
This Scripture reminds us of a judgment from God that occurred about 3,500 years earlier when another Jew-hater, the Egyptian Pharaoh, tried to chase his former Jewish slaves into the Red Sea.
Should not the western world demand that the Muslims stop all the horrible things they do, like suicide bombers, and ax-murderers who chop off the heads of innocent people and who hold the whole world hostage to their oil?
Muslims are practicing economic terrorism as well as threatening the entire western civilized world. The giant cartoon brouhaha is not just about free speech versus religious discrimination. It's about Islam threatening and bullying the non-Muslim nations of the world to submit to their will, or else!
The word, Islam, actually means "submission" and "Allahu Akbar" does not mean, "God is great," it means, "Allah is greater." They are proclaiming that their demon-god is greater than the God of Israel. What lies!
Allah is the demon-god of the Pale Horseman of Revelation. This Gazette, therefore, focuses on God's burgeoning vendetta against Islam and above all, against the god of Islam, Satan, and his myriad principalities, powers and rulers of the darkness of this world!
The Death of Ilam Halimi, a French Jewish-Man
The horrifying torture and stabbing death of Ilam Halimi, a French-Jewish man on February 13, 2006 at the hands of a French-born Muslim has stunned France, which has Europe's largest Muslim and Jewish populations. The police think at least 20 people participated in his abduction and demands for ransom. His captors told his family that if they did not have the money, they should "go and get it from your synagogue," and later contacted a rabbi, telling him, "We have a Jew."
The killers who kidnapped and killed Mr. Halimi called themselves the Barbarians, and included people of different backgrounds: blacks from sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean, Arabs from North Africa, at least one Persian from Iran, and whites from Portugal and France. The gang's leader, Youssouf Fofana, 25, was one of five children born in Paris to Muslim immigrants from Ivory Coast. "The emerging details raise deep fears of virulent anti-Semitism within the hardening underclass." (New York Times, 3/5/06)
Iranian Paper Seeks Holocaust Cartoons
An Iranian newspaper said on February 7, 2006 it would hold a competition for cartoons on the Holocaust to test whether the West extends the principle of freedom of expression to the Nazi genocide as it did to that caricature of Mohammad.
The contest is co-sponsored by the House of Caricatures, a Tehran exhibition center for cartoons. The paper and the cartoon center are owned by the Tehran Municipality, which is dominated by the allies of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, well known for his opposition to Israel.
"Ahmadinejad, who was Tehran's mayor until being elected president in June, provoked outcries last year when he said on separate occasions that Israel should be 'wiped off the map,' and 'the Holocaust was a myth.' Iran said last month it would sponsor a conference to examine the scientific evidence supporting the Holocaust, an apparent attempt to give voice to Holocaust deniers." (Associated Press, 2/7/06)
Just like Pharaoh, Iran is taking a dangerous stand against the God of Jacob by mocking the horrific genocide of 6,000,000 of His children by the Nazis. No wonder God says, "Jacob have I loved; But Esau (patriarch, along with Ishmael, of the present day Muslims) I have hated." (Mal. 1:2-3)
Here is what God said about Ishmael to his Egyptian mother, Hagar:
Now, consider also Esau's marriage to Mahalath, the daughter of Ishmael, (Gen. 28:6-9) and Isaac's prophecy concerning Esau, "By your sword you shall live." (Gen. 27:40)
Thus, the sword-bearing, wild ass of a man whose hand is against every man and every man's hand against him is the one described Scripturally in the end-times as "beasts of the earth" who are disciples of the Rider on the Pale Horse. (Rev. 6:8)
This then is the lineage of those Muslims who are terrorizing the earth today who call their demon-god, Allah. And when the Muslims, enraged over the cartoons of Mohammed, went on an explosive world-wide rampage and turned that rage against His chosen people chanting, "Death to Israel," blaming them for the cartoons that they had absolutely nothing to do with, the God of Jacob could stand still for it no more.
The Writing On The Wall
And so it was on February 24, 2006 that I heard Him say, "Writing on the wall." This recalled to my mind the handwriting which mysteriously appeared on the walls of King Belshazzar's palace in Babylon (present day Iraq) in 538 B.C.
This time, violence unleashed by the bombing of the Golden Dome mosque of the Shiite Askariya shrine in Samarra, a predominantly Sunni city, would result in "his hand shall be against every man and every man's hand against him." (Gen.16:12) Interestingly, the destruction of the Golden Dome happened in Bablyon, the same place where Belshazzar had received similar judgment at the hand of an angry God 2,500 years earlier.
"Belshazzar the king made a great feast for a thousand of his lords, and drank wine in the presence of the thousand. While he tasted the wine, Belshazzar gave the command to bring the gold and silver vessels which his father Nebuchadnezzar had taken from the Temple which had been in Jerusalem, that the king and his lords, his wives, and his concubines might drink from them... They drank wine, and praised the gods of gold and silver, bronze and iron, wood and stone. In the same hour, the fingers of a man's hand appeared and wrote opposite the lampstand on the plaster of the wall of the king's palace; and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote. Then the king's countenance changed, and his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his hips were loosened and his knees knocked against each other."
When Belshazzar's wise men and astrologers were not able to interpret the writing, they called for the Hebrew prophet, Daniel, who told Belshazzar,
"O king, the Most High God gave Nebuchadnezzar your father a kingdom and majesty, glory and honor... But when his heart was lifted up, and his spirit was hardened in pride, he was deposed from his kingly throne, and they took his glory from him. Then he was driven from the sons of men, his heart was made like the beasts, and his dwelling was with the wild donkeys. They fed him with grass like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till he knew that the Most High God rules in the kingdom of men, and appoints over it whomever He chooses. But you his son, Belshazzar, have not humbled your heart, although you knew all this. And you have lifted yourself up against the Lord of heaven. They have brought the vessels of His house before you, and you and your lords, your wives and your concubines, have drunk wine from them. And you have praised the gods of silver and gold, bronze and iron, wood and stone, which do not see or hear or know; and the God who holds your breath in His hand and owns all your ways, you have not glorified. Then the fingers of the hand were sent from Him, and this is the inscription that was written: MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. This is the interpretation of each word. Mene: God has numbered your kingdom, and finished it; Tekel: You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting; Peres: Your kingdom has been divided, and given to the Medes and Persians. That very night Belshazzar, king of the Chaldeans, was slain. And Darius the Mede received the kingdom, being about sixty-two years old." (Daniel 5:1-6, 8, 19-26, 28-31)
When the Golden Dome mosque of the Shiite Askariya shrine was exploded, those who had proclaimed Allah (the name of a demon) to be god were divided; hundreds were left dead. A near civil war exploded in Iraq (ancient Babylon) between the Shiite (fundamentally an Iranian-based sect) and the Sunnis and "divided" their Islamic kingdom.
And now that the Lord God of Israel has begun to divide Islam, how will He judge Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the President of Iran (Persia), a vile Holocaust-denier who inspired this competition for cartoons on the Holocaust?
And Russia who invited a Hamas delegation (responsible for dozens of suicide bombings in Israel and is sworn to the destruction of the Jewish nation) for meetings in Moscow the first week of March?
And Turkey who met with the Foreign Minister of Hamas in Ankara on February 17th? And America, and whoever else mocks the God of Jacob by favoring these sons of Esau/Ishmael-Islamic murderers and their demonic foreign god!
President Bush needs to stop his naive policies, like the $75 million fund to bring democracy to Iran and the fiasco surrounding his fighting for approval of the United Arab Emirate's purchase of a British company which would give the UAE control of six American ports. The UAE is a Muslim-Arab nation which endorses and participates in the Arab boycott of goods manufactured in Israel! A potential consequence of the ports deal could be the boycott of Israeli goods from American ports by an approved Arab shipping controller.
Time grows short and the patience of the God of Jacob wears thin. Continuing to ignore His Word and His warnings contained therein about His great love for Israel and His hatred for Esau (Mal. 1:2-3) will bring alarming consequences! Katrina will pale in comparison!
Palestinian Election Backfires!
The radical Islamic terrorist party, Hamas, won an overwhelming victory in the Palestinian elections, taking 76 out of 132 seats, deposing the former ruling party, Fatah, which won only 43. President Bush's response to the shocking outcome of these American-fomented democratic elections was less one of confrontation than of inviting Hamas to change its ways while the world watches.
"There was a peaceful process as people went to the polls, and that's positive," Mr. Bush said. "But what's also positive is that it's a wake-up call to the leadership. Obviously people were not happy with the status quo." He added that Hamas could not be "a partner in peace" if it continued to advocate the destruction of Israel or harbored "an armed wing."
But his tone suggested that the United States would have an open mind as the Palestinians form their government and take actions."
Leaders across the world demanded that Hamas renounce violence and recognize Israel. President Bush said in Washington, "If your platform is the destruction of Israel, it means you're not a partner in peace, and we're interested in peace." (NY Times, 1/26/06)
The will of the Palestinian Arabs was to elect terrorists who promise to destroy Israel, and who want to create a militant Islamic state, a government that is antithetical, or altogether in opposition to the hopes of a true democracy.
America, Israel's biggest supporter and trade partner, had encouraged the recent Gaza evacuation, dividing the Land in favor of the Palestinians, which made America a sure candidate for destruction at the hand of God. (Joel 3:2) Exactly 7 days after the Gaza evacuation, God obliged them by sending Hurricane Katrina which devastated New Orleans and the Gulf Coast causing the largest American evacuation in history, and later by giving the Hamas terrorists a victory in the "democratic" Palestinian elections, thereby throwing egg all over the face of America.
The American-instigated Gaza evacuation had clearly strengthened Hamas' position in that they could claim amongst the voting population that it was their terrorist campaign which had weakened and driven the Jews out of Gaza, itself a seething cauldron of Hamas activity and influence.
America's plan for democracy in the Middle East has backfired! Not only that, but America had earlier paid Fatah about $1.25 million dollars to help them with the costs of the election and had insisted that Hamas (the Iranian-funded terrorist organization) be allowed to participate in these democratic elections.
This is Democracy in the Middle East!
"The Hamas controlled Palestinian parliament Monday cancelled all decisions made during the last session of the outgoing legislature, including legislation giving additional powers to Mahmoud Abbas. The vote signaled that Hamas legislators will take a confrontational approach in dealing with the rival Fatah Party, which was defeated in January's elections... During the voting, a dozen Fatah gunmen walked near the parliament building in Gaza City, firing into the air. The gunmen eventually headed to a nearby meeting of Fatah leaders, demanding that their party not join a Hamas government, with one masked gunman saying any Fatah politician joining would be killed." (AP, 3/6/06)
Congratulations, President Bush, this is democracy in the Middle East! This happened while your statement that Hamas's victory was a triumph of democracy and a rebuke to the old guard was still ringing in our ears.
The Millennial Temple
The thought has crossed my mind that the sectarian strife between the Shiite and Sunni Muslims that began with the bombing of the Shiite Askariya mosque in Iraq could multiply like rabbits into surrounding nations just like the rampaging did over the cartoon controversy. One such sectarian incident was just reported in India.
Whether that flood of ungodliness (Dan. 9:26; Ps. 18:4) could in-and-of-itself germinate enough internecine strife to generate a similar destruction on the Temple Mount mosques only the God of Jacob knows. But we know that the Millennial Temple (Ezek.43:10-11) must be built and I always assumed that it might be side-by-side with the two mosques that are presently there.
Just how far God intends to push His current "Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin" agenda, only He knows!

The Cycle of Seventy
Seven and its multiples are God's perfect numbers. He created the world and on the 7th day He rested. In the seventh year, the slaves go free (Exodus 21:2). The Jewish people were in captivity in Babylon for 70 years. At the end of the 7 seals, 7 trumpets and 7 bowls, God's plan of perfecting the world will be completed. The Lord commands us to forgive our brothers 70 times 7, and He commands the thief to restore sevenfold. (Proverbs 6:31)
Daniel's 70 Weeks
In response to Daniel's prayer for God to forgive Israel's sin, and to restore Jerusalem and their holy Temple, the Archangel Gabriel answered as follows:
In this instance, one week equals seven years. Thus it would take 490 years in total (70 times 7) until the great day when the Messiah is anointed as King of Kings in His Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
The weeks ran consecutively starting in 445BC when the command went forth to rebuild the city and the wall of Jerusalem. (Vv.25) But at the 69th week, Messiah was cut off (Vv.26), the Church Age began, and the time clock stopped running for the last 2,000 years.
Now the time is coming to rebuild the Throne of David, to restore the kingdom to Israel, at the 70th week of Daniel.
This final 7 year period which constitutes the 70th week of Daniel will begin when the false peace between Israel and the Arabs is consummated and confirmed by the False Prophet. It has not begun yet. But it is ushered in through persecution of the Jewish people and will lead to their salvation and to the cleansing of that part of the true Church which is part of the Commonwealth of Israel.
As for the anti-Semitic mainline churches, they need to repent and be saved during this period or inherit eternal damnation.
Many people are fearful and wonder about the increase in deadly hurricanes, earthquakes and diseases.
Now is not the time of final judgment, but a time of great difficulties which Yeshua said are "the beginning of sorrows" when men will panic at the events coming on the earth.
Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, earthquakes and fires, tsunamis, mud slides and resurgent diseases that pummel our world are such signs and warnings that mankind should repent of their evil ways, and that people and nations who bring a curse against the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob will be cursed. (Gen. 12:3).
But they are not the final judgments. Bad though they may be, remember that "tribulation worketh patience." (Romans 5:3)
Forgiveness: 70 Times 7
Peter asked Yeshua, "Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?" Yeshua said to him, "I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven (490)." (Matthew 18:21-22)
We must forgive our brothers up to "70 times 7." And God must forgive the nations who persecute His people, Israel, until the 70th week commences.
The persecution of Israel and the Church will not cease, and full and final judgment to the persecutors cannot be dealt out by Messiah (who will judge the evildoers upon His return at the end of the Age) until the 70th week, and throughout the 7 seals, 7 trumpets and 7 bowls.
An example of this 70 week scenario is seen in the captivity of Judah and Benjamin in Babylon. God would not fully and finally judge Babylon until 70 years had passed.
"And this whole land shall be a desolation and an astonishment, and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon 70 years. Then it will come to pass, when 70 years are completed, that I will punish the king of Babylon and that nation, the land of the Chaldeans, for their iniquity, says the Lord; and I will make it a perpetual desolation." (Jer. 25:11-12)
My 70th Birthday, October 16, 2005!
Now I am turning 70 years old, and I hope my captivity is ending and I will be set free to complete my life's work for the Lord.
In my heart I have forgiven and continue to forgive all who have hurt me as the Lord requires. But I feel it is time to share certain things about my life, and about the wrongful things which were done to me by men in ministry who have caused untold problems over the last 28 years of my life in ministry.
Am I not also to be vindicated by the Lord in my 70th year and to enter into the Lord's rest?
Before I go to the grave, having been silent all these years, I must set the record straight, that my name will finally be freed from the stigma that they have brought to it. Even my very testimony has been condemned by some. So, it will be a catharsis for me to tell my story.
Born on Tabernacles just like Yeshua was!
On Wednesday, 19 Tishri 5696, the fifth day of the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) , according to the Jewish calendar, (October 16, 1935 according to the Gentile calendar), my Mother gave birth to me in Grace Hospital in New Haven, Connecticut. Although my parents had taken every knowable precaution against conception, I was conceived. God must have had a hand in it unbeknownst to my parents.
Face to Face with the Father
In 1972 at the age of 37, while a practicing attorney (having graduated 4th in my class from New York Law School), during prayer I was lifted in the Spirit into heaven and found myself seated on the lap of the Father.
He said to me, "You will build for Me a new house of worship!" How had I, a mere mortal man, seen the Father?
The Son had willed to reveal the Father to me. He brought me to heaven in vision many times and allowed me to see things that most only read about in the Bible.
A Vision of Man Standing on a Rock
While living in New Canaan, CT, where I had my own private law practice in 1975, I had a vision of a man with a great white beard and sandals standing on a rock, staff in hand, staring at me. He had a face of steel, but eyes so gentle.
I told my friend, Natasha Audrain, an old Pentacostal Christian, who lived near me about the vision; I explained that I wondered who this man was. While sitting in church, Natasha received a message from the Lord to tell me that I had seen Moses.
A Second Vision of Moses
I founded a congregation, Makom Yonah (Hebrew for "The Place of the Dove"), that met in an Episcopal Church in New Canaan.
As I worshiped there on one beautiful Shabbat, I had a vision of the spirit of Moses wearing a great black and white prayer shawl coming down through the roof, settling on top of me, and it felt as though his spirit and mantle were merging with me; I wept and wept.
From that moment on, my life changed. I experienced the most profound fatherly love for Israel. The music I was composing changed and became profoundly beautiful and heavenly. My skills as a writer seemed to increase exponentially. I attained a new-found maturity in my heart that I had never experienced before.
But I also became an outcast in New Canaan: Makom Yonah failed; my wife and children left me calling me a "Jewish Jesus freak!" and finally, the Lord told me in 1976 to close down my law practice and become for him "a divine lawyer," representing His kingdom. I closed my doors and never turned back... for almost 30 years now.
A Visitation from An Angel
After a year of intense study of the Scriptures from cover to cover, I received a visitation in the middle of the night in my apartment in New Canaan from an angel who said that the Lord was well pleased with me and was bringing me into ministry.
A few weeks later, I met and joined up with Calvin Marsh, a wonderful former Metropolitan Opera star, who felt called to sing my Messianic songs. He was a missionary on the staff of The American Board of Missions to the Jews and he got me a job with them so that I made a small salary for the first time in a year.
After about six months of ministering in small churches with Calvin, he was invited by Logos Publishing Company in 1977 to minister at their Annual World Conference on the Holy Spirit in Jerusalem, and he insisted that they needed to have me also. Amazingly, the Lord provided a way and there I was in Jerusalem, Calvin and I ministering with my music.
A Fateful Meeting
At the Conference, I met Mike Evans, one of the main speakers, and one of the most anointed ministers of the Gospel I had ever seen. He said my music was highly original and uniquely different from all the Messianic music, and invited me to stay at his ministry, B'nai Yeshua, in Stony Brook, NY, to write songs for his Messianic performing group, The Psalms of David.
Several months later, I took him up on his offer, packed up my apartment in New Canaan and went out to live on their campus; but all the time I continued to minister with Calvin for the ABMJ in the U.S. and Canada which was how I made my living.
Mike Evans moved me into my own private house on the ministry grounds as he had promised, to live and work in the kind of privacy that a writer needs while I wrote songs for the recording, but it wasn't long before he began to move other men into the house, breaking his promise to me.
I should have known to leave at that time, but didn't. I stayed and wrote for about 6 months, never really being incorporated into his ministry.
It was there that I had the honor of meeting Peter Eliastam (his name means "stem of Elijah"), a great artist from South Africa with whom I became very close.
Shortly after I arrived at the ministry, I had a vision of Mike Evans falling into a pit; of demons crawling out of holes in the pit which were tying him down with ropes. In the vision, I tried to pull him out but could not.
I finished my writing and the album was recorded with 5 of my songs included. Then I had another dream of his ministry collapsing, and the Lord instructed me to leave. I had learned a great deal there about the workings of the Holy Spirit for which I am grateful.
Mike Evans called me into his office and told me that all of the elders of his ministry were in agreement that I was prideful (because of my musical gift) and needed to join his ministry and come under his personal supervision to have my pride killed.
He told me to give up my music ministry with the ABMJ, and said that he and his elders (whom he controlled like puppets) had decided that it was God's will for me to mow lawns and to be a grounds keeper on the substantial B'nai Yeshua lawns where I was still residing.
At about that time, Mike had a vision of a Jewish man who was cast out from the Messianic Jewish community; and that when the man was old, the Messianic community embraced him.
I told Mike he was wrong to try to place me in captivity; that he had no Scriptural authority to do that; that God had instructed me in a dream to leave; and that I was the old Jewish man in his vision who would be ostracized and finally embraced again.
He was very angry that I would not capitulate to his demands, and upset when I told him I was the old Jewish man in the vision; he thought that he was that old man.
But as God had instructed me, I fled that night under cover of darkness because it was obvious to me that Mike and his elders were about to make their move to block my leaving.
I loaded my car late that night with whatever I could easily carry, left all of my furniture behind for my many young friends there that I loved, and virtually ran for my life. God had warned me and I obeyed!
Mike Evans retained temporary control of my catalogue of music copyrights because due to my loving and trusting nature I had stupidly turned them over to him to administer, but eventually he returned them to me.
"Go Back to B'nai Yeshua for 7 Days"
A year later, after a week of fasting, the Lord spoke to me and told me to go back to B'nai Yeshua for 7 days to deliver the message to Mike Evans that if he didn't stop taking advantage of the people in his ministry, it would be taken away from him and given to another.
I cried out to the Lord that I dared not go. I escaped once before and what assurance did I have that I would not be trapped there now? But the Lord insisted and warned me to be obedient and so I returned.
In the interim, however, I received a letter from Peter Eliastam. He was an astounding artist who had done hundreds of the most unusual and priceless collages exquisitely portraying the Scriptures; a true genius.
In that letter, he told me that after I left B'nai Yeshua the year before, Mike Evans invited him to move to the ministry, that he went home to gather his wife and family and to ship his collection of works of art across the ocean to B'nai Yeshua in preparation for the move. But after shipping them, he received a telegram from Mike Evans telling him that the Lord had told him that he was not to come after all.
Thus, Peter was separated from his priceless collection without any remuneration. What a gross injustice! To my knowledge, most of Peter's works of art were never returned to him nor was he paid for them.
This served as a double confirmation to me as to why God was sending me to B'nai Yeshua. This was one of those grievances that the Lord was sending me to address with Mike Evans.
When I arrived at B'nai Yeshua, I was told that Mike was away on a skiing trip and would not return until six more days.
Mike returned on the 7th day and refused to see or talk to me even though I said I was sent by the Lord. His ministry manager told me to write a letter with whatever comments I thought the Lord wanted me to deliver.
I wrote that his behavior was distressing the Lord, that he was blaming the devil for many bad things that had been happening to him when in reality it was a warning from the Lord, and unless he repented, the ministry would be taken from him and given to another.
The reply came back to me that many others had told him the same things; that they were wrong and so was I, and I should leave the grounds and never set foot on them again. Shortly thereafter, the ministry property was sold to another owner. Many of Peter's works of art, however, were left on the walls of the main ministry house and were never returned to him.
But it was from that day on that a smear campaign against me began, when in reality it should have been the other way around. Mike Evans and some of his elders, some of whom became Messianic rabbis and rose to high places in Messianic circles, flamboyantly and lyingly discredited me and subjected me to disgrace wherever my name came up. For what? For obeying the Lord and giving Mike the message to repent? For not abandoning my ministry to become a slave and a gardener for him?
Doors of ministry began to close to me. Their false reports were like armed robbers stealing my Levitical share of ministry.
I have forgiven them all, and have not publically related this information or defended myself. But the consequences flowing from their false reports and lies remain until this day because I dared to do the right thing.
A Second Smear Campaign
Then there was Sammy Oppenheim, whom I loved like a brother, and I can only assume that like Joseph's brothers, this man envied me, because he abruptly turned on me like Joseph's brothers turned on him. (Genesis 37:11)
When I met Sammy in El Paso, TX, he was the rabbi of Messianic Congregation Ben David, and an officer of the then-fledgling Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations (UMJC), founded by Dan Juster.
Sammy introduced me to the UMJC when he brought me to a conference. While there, Dan Juster heard some of my songs, and asked me to write music to parts of the liturgy for their high holiday prayer book, which I did.
I was sleeping on Sammy's couch as I had no other home and was itinerating as a minister; my former wife and children had abandoned me a few years earlier because of my faith in Yeshua.
A Simple Question
I had discussed with Sammy my visions of Moses and had asked him if he thought it was possible that I had inherited the mantle of Moses when in a vision the spirit of Moses came down through the roof and seemed to overshadow me while worshiping at Makom Yonah in New Canaan, CT.
"Do you think," I asked him , "I could be one of the two witnesses of the Book of Revelation?" All of a sudden he turned mean-spirited - like Satan entered into him. He set up an inquisition before two local pastors, misapplying the following Scripture:
I had not sinned against Sammy by asking him that question! The pastors said, "We find no guile in this man." What a mockery of justice; and I a lawyer!
Then he threatened to bring the matter before his congregation, where they were singing my songs in their services, if I didn't give up my ministry and submit to him and sit at his feet for 3 months without participating in any way in ministry.
The Lord showed me in vision to dust off my shoes and immediately get on my way to California where I was to start up my production of "Rabboni," which ultimately became one of the best known Messianic musicals to the Jewish people anywhere, and Sammy tried to block me.
My phone rang off the hook all that night (I had moved to a rented furnished suite) as if Sammy knew supernaturally that I was planning to leave for California the next morning.
Depression and Despair
When Sammy found out that I was gone, he initiated a vendetta against me.
He wrote a scandalously filthy, lying 12 page letter in which he falsely accused me of many things and said that I believed I was Elijah; an outright lie. (I wondered about the mantle of Moses based upon my stated experience, but certainly never claimed to be Elijah.)
But how had I sinned against a brother by asking him a simple question?
Sammy sent the letter to hundreds of people around the country, to the entire Messianic movement. One of my dear friends in Lubbock, Texas with whom I roomed for about a year, received the letter and told me of its contents; I wept, but I never read it and never defended myself. It followed me throughout my years of ministry.
I was ostracized by the leadership of the Messianic movement as Sammy had promised. Dan Juster and his UMJC refused to receive and use the beautiful musical liturgy that I had written for them at their request.
No one ever asked me if Sammy's accusations were true. They believed his lies and spread them. His smear campaign caused depression and despair for many years.
Jews For Jesus received the accusation against me and unjustly condemned me. Many years later, Moishe Rosen asked my forgiveness. I certainly forgave him but asked him how could the damage be undone.
Sammy even had his congregation pray curses over me, turning me over to the devil for the destruction of my flesh, actually praying that I would die. I found that out years later when Michael Washer visited Florida and wept as he begged me for forgiveness for what he had done to me while a member of Sammy's congregation.
After many years, the Lord made me visit Sammy when I was ministering in Texas. Wendy and I had lunch with him. I told him I forgave him. He said he would write to the Messianic movement to tell them that the situation had corrected itself, whatever that meant. But to my knowledge, he hasn't done so.
Blacklisted for 28 Years
I hope you have never had to face or overcome such obstacles as these but you can certainly understand my pain at having to endure them for the last 28 years.
I have never gone to an MJAA or UMJC conference; they never invited me to speak even when "Rabboni" was running prominently off-Broadway, or when I had a well-known radio show on the largest Christian station in New York City. I did not feel welcome.
Many of them came to see my musical in New York City, but did not so much as say hello to me.
Sammy attacked my ministry all over the country. His slander reached to Jack Hayford of Church on the Way in CA whom I had met and had breakfast with; we wanted to perform our musical there, but Sammy effectively blocked it; he had been an associate pastor there years back.
In spite of the attacks against me, I trusted and obeyed the Lord with forgiveness in my heart, and He prospered the works of my hands.
Another Pack of Lies
In 1985, our musical, "Rabboni," was running off-Broadway for about three months when we decided to move up to Broadway. One of our musicians had been quite troublesome and I had decided not to bring her up with us.
She called her union and although they had no jurisdiction over our show, a union rep threatened me with a strike if within one week I did not change my mind regarding that one musician.
In the midst of this battle, Keith Ripka, a talented Christian bandleader who had shared the platform with Calvin and myself at a B'nai Yeshua Shekinah Conference many years earlier dropped in to see our production. I told him about my musicians' union problem and he said he could help because he had a band that could jump right in if our band struck us.
He asked for 5 tickets to bring his musicians to see the show right away so they could observe the routines on stage. I was delighted to give him the tickets and get his help in this emergency.
When that performance came around, I saw Keith in line with his wife and children; no musicians. When I questioned him about why he had brought his family and not the musicians, he made light of it by telling me I had misunderstood him - a bold-faced lie.
The strike was avoided, so we didn't need Keith's band. When it was time to produce on Broadway, I forgave Keith's earlier lie, thinking that it was a one-time indiscretion; after all, he was a brother in the Lord.
I was considering hiring him, but our Broadway general management firm objected. Their position was that he lacked the necessary credentials. That was true, but I wanted to give a brother in the Lord a second chance.
He did the vocal arrangements and was paid $3,000. The going rate for vocal arranging was $2,500 at the time. But I later discovered that Keith was dishonest and billed me for things that he did not do and double billed me in some instances for things he did do.
I also discovered that in some of the promotional materials he had given me as samples of his work, he listed himself as the musical arranger (which is what I was considering hiring him for) when he had only been copyist; a very different skill.
He dishonestly forged my own Father's signature on a fraudulent union contract that falsely claimed I had hired him as arranger (my Father was one of the best copyists in New York City) which could have caused my Dad to lose his considerable pension.
When our production sadly had to be suspended before opening due to the failure of an investor to bring in the promised finances, Keith threatened to sue us claiming that we owed him 30 or 40 thousand dollars. Outrageous!
He spread lies across the country about me, saying I never paid him, that I owed him vast amounts of money (for work that he never did), saying that he wrote the music, not me, and so many more lies. He told pastors to have nothing to do with me, closing many doors of ministry, effectively robbing me as well as the Body of the Lord. He even copyrighted my music as his own, for which I could sue him, but haven't.
I am an accomplished composer and have written thousands of songs over the years, many of which have been recorded by major artists, Messianic and otherwise.
What amazes me is that people believed the lies! Not one person ever asked me if what he and all the others had said was true. They were quick to receive false accusations, believe the lies, and condemn me.
Looking back, it becomes clear that demonic powers operating through various people were assigned to try and stop the ministry God had called me to. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against wicked spirits. And some of the things done to me were so cruel, they could only be called demonic.
God is Faithful
No matter what slander came against me, no matter how hard they tried to destroy my work, the Lord was with me and enabled me to write and produce "Rabboni," for which I won a Bronze Halo Award from The Southern California Motion Picture Council for "Excellence in Family Entertainment," which has brought many people, Jew and Gentile, to the saving knowledge of Messiah.
The Lord opened many doors to me which no man could shut. I have ministered in music, in healing, and in the Word across this country, in Europe and the Middle East.
Through diligent study of the prophetic Scriptures, the Lord has given me expertise in end-time prophecy. I have written a widely-acclaimed book, along with a sequel, taught prophecy seminars which have blessed the Lord's people with revelation knowledge and understanding, and we have prophecy TV shows airing in Birmingham, AL, Atlanta, GA and the Philippines.
God has blessed me with amazing skill and anointing to compose music and write theatrical outreaches for Him. We have a trilogy of 3 full-length Messianic musicals that dramatize the entire plan of salvation from Genesis to Revelation in the most entertaining and warmly Jewish ways.
With the devastation from hurricanes and earthquakes, the fires in California, the surging gasoline prices, the threat of terrorism and deadly viruses, a new sense of urgency is emerging.
It is time to hear, "The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord; make His paths straight." (Mark 1:3) Our musicals do just that.
We call our trilogy "The Mendel Cycle." It consists of "Mendel & Moses" (winner of a Best Choreography award in Los Angeles), "Mendel's Messiah" (formerly "Rabboni," winner of a Bronze Halo Award), and "The Time of Mendel's Trouble" (an end-time epic).
Now is the time to revive "Mendel & Moses" when calamities of Biblical proportions are hitting America, the modern-day Egypt.
The Muslim invasion of our Judeo-Christian ethic is well on its way. The Lord has given us the keys to counter their propaganda through the artistic freedom of musical theater, to impact the culture of our nation with the Light of God's Word.
These three musicals are the pinnacle of my life's work. Yet, if the Lord does not do something to bring forth the financing, they will never see the light of day. Without Him, we can do nothing. But with God, all things are possible!
The Lord tells us to forgive our brothers 70 times 7. I have always practiced that advice.
Now that I am in my 70th year, I proclaim to all who ever slandered me and caused me hurt: I forgive you from the bottom of my heart with love, and I pray God's blessings be upon you! And for how ever I may have offended you, I apologize and ask your forgiveness.
I have unburdened myself at last after 28 years. May God release me from the shackles that have held me back. May He break every bondage so that I may fulfill His calling on my life. And may He do the same for you.
Thank you, my dear friends. I am grateful that I can call you friends. Please remember us in your prayers and in your giving. God bless you.
With warmest love in Messiah Yeshua,

Webster's Dictionary tells us, "'Juggernaut' is derived from Hindi, Jagannâth, lord of the world; an incarnation of the Hindu god Vishnu, whose idol so excited his worshipers when it was hauled along on a large car during religious rites that they threw themselves under the wheels and were crushed; 1) anything that exacts blind devotion or terrible sacrifice. 2) any terrible, irresistible force."
Adolph Hitler, a terrible, irresistible force which exacted blind devotion, was one such a juggernaut. Myriad juggernauts have led the world to the edge of destruction through such things as man-made religions and their religious wars, anti-God New Age movements, and so on. They are many, varied and mostly in opposition to each other, but particularly to the God of Israel and His only begotten Son, Messiah Yeshua.
Often these juggernauts seem like the real thing, but they are not, and it is only the exacting word of the Hebrew Bible, both First and Second Covenants, that can help us to spot these clever counterfeits planted by Satan who has been in rebellion against the God of the Hebrews since before the Garden of Eden.
Across the course of world history, Satanic influences inserted into the human mind have created religious obstacles to the truth - juggernauts. They are modern-day idols. This Gazette will focus on the last and major four juggernauts which will push this World Age over the brink into the crossroads to destruction.
The Crossroads to Destruction
The Falling Away
When mean-spirited judges, some of whom call themselves Christian, in a free society, can blatantly shun God's laws and without a twinge of conscience kill Terri Schiavo, we can see that we have entered into the realm of what Scripture calls, "the last days perilous times." This has been Satan's objective throughout the generations, and he is now accomplishing "the falling away" that Scripture speaks of.
He is bringing the human race into the Crossroads to Destruction. When judges claim that the letter of the law requires strict adherence to an inflexible code in the face of the frantic pleas of a distraught mother and father, it is obvious that men have become "unholy, unloving and brutal" and God's judgment must therefore follow.
When I attended law school not too many years ago, we learned of a "doctrine of equity" which always gave the courts the right to exercise mercy over law; to supercede the strict legal requirements of the law where equity and fairness required it.
But this no longer seems to exist in the hardened hearts of unregenerate men who have become politically correct, lovers of self instead of God and His Commandments, and despisers of good. The enemy of the human race has hardened them to the nudgings of gentle and humane consciences, and this wave of wickedness is sweeping across the world.
Men should fall on their faces before a holy God and beg for forgiveness, but alas, they will get worse because "the prince of this world" (John 12:31) has increased the tempo of perdition to the max.
The Black Horse Juggernaut -
Mystery Babylon, Mammon & Godless Democracy
When President Bush rejects the cries of a people who 60 years earlier were liberated from the killing fields of the Holocaust to establish their tiny state in the Land that God had given them, their only protection from the 22 hostile and often vicious Arab states, and spearheads the Roadmap which will pick clean the flesh of the mere skeleton of a Land of Israel that the League of Nations had originally mandated, believing the Satanically inspired Arab propaganda and ignoring the truth of the Word of God, the falling away has come!
The denomination attended by the President teaches "replacement theology" which would allow him to believe that Israel's covenant with God has been negated by His promises to a Christian Church. They teach that Israel's Land can be divided with a Christian God's blessing. God warns there is a heavy price to be paid for such folly - judgment at the war of Armageddon.
The President's faulty thinking allows political correctness to replace the sword of God's Word. Replacement theology, inspired by Satan and men, not God, is a doctrine based upon pride, greed and jealousy. It is a lust for power which will not be satisfied until it replaces the chosen people of God's First Covenant with the adopted children of the Second Covenant.
Scripture makes it clear that they will never succeed in this. By declaring the Old Testament to be sin and off limits to New Testament Christians, Satan has in some quarters successfully buried the promises of God to the Children of Israel, thereby guaranteeing his own right to rule from the Temple Mount which he has shrouded in multitudes of lies and juggernauts which he has engineered to masquerade as truths and which have in the world been accepted as such, such as Christmas, Easter, Mary being the mediator between God and man, when the Bible clearly contradicts all of them in God's seven Feasts and the Scripture, "For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Messiah Jesus." (1 Tim. 2:5)
Satan accomplishes all of this subterfuge through his endless hierarchy of religious spirits, and one billion people throughout the world are none the wiser for it by becoming enshrouded in death-inducing ipso facto non-Biblical dogmatic doctrines.
When Constantine founded the Roman Catholic Church, wrenching it away from Christianity's Jewish roots in Jerusalem, it was the beginning of replacement theology. By it, a man could not be saved by the blood sacrifice of the Messiah, but only if he agreed to be baptized into the Catholic Church, a clear contradiction of the Bible which says, "Believe on the Lord Yeshua Messiah, and you shall be saved." (Acts 16:31)
White smoke billowed and tolling bells in St. Peter's Square called to the hundreds of thousands of followers in the area of the Vatican who rushed in a frenzy to adore their new leader, no matter who he might be. He turned out to be Benedict XVI, the 267th Pope elected to head the Roman Catholic Church which in itself is an anomaly, a departure from the general rule; a far cry from the Christianity that was birthed in the Jewish Church in Jerusalem almost 2,000 years earlier; a kind of replacement theology in itself.
"History has a funny way of being forgotten. When Constantine, the Emperor of Rome, granted religious freedom to the persecuted Christians in AD 313, it was much more than just an act of human compassion centered on 'Christian conversion' - it was a shrewd political move meant to unify the Empire. And when Christianity became recognized as a Roman state religion, Constantine was elevated as 'head of the church.' [Ed. Note: at the same time he was still the head of Roman paganism.]
"Through Constantine's actions, the Roman Catholic Church was birthed as an institutionalized political-religious Roman alliance. Thus, via this morphed spiritual-governmental entity, Romanism remained alive in spite of the fact that the 'national' Roman Empire fractured and collapsed. Ironically, even the name 'Roman Catholicism' reflects this historical reality. 'Catholic' means 'universal,' Roman Catholicism literally means 'Universal Romanism.' Today the Catholic Church is the living and enlarged extension of Constantine's political-religious experiment." (From an article by Jamie Brendan entitled, "Kings and Pawns in the Game of Globalization," Vol.14/No.3 May/June 2004 Endtime/ World Events from a Biblical Perspective, Pp 22)
What is significant from the point of view of this Gazette is that from out of the Roman Catholic Church, a major end-time juggernaut, will come a Pope who will confirm the covenant of false peace that President Bush is spearheading with the Quartet: America, Russia, the European Union and the United Nations. (Dan. 9:27) But is that man the new Pope, Benedict XVI? While he may be the one to make peace (the olive branch) by confirming the covenant which initiates the 70th week of Daniel, the last 7-years of the world-age which culminates with Israel's salvation and the return of the Lord to sit on the throne of David ("and to anoint the Most Holy" - Dan. 9:24), yet he may be only an interim Pope; there may be another final Pope who will serve side by side with the Anti-Christ for the last 3-1/2 years.
Prophetic Scripture calls that Pope "another beast coming up out of the earth who had two horns like a lamb (like the Messiah), and spoke like a dragon (the devil)," (Rev. 13:11) and who will be the "false prophet." (Rev. 19:20)
It is important to remember that Satan will continually try to obscure the eternal legacy of the Land-grant from Jehovah to the sons of Jacob. If he can succeed in making the Old Testament persona non grata to Christians, then he has taken a huge step in that direction. And so he persists in trying to bury the Temple Mount beneath tons of Arab artifacts and multifarious propaganda to obscure Messiah's Scriptural right to return there to enter His Temple and reign from His Throne of David. Satan fights to counterfeit that avenue of truth through the political correctness of religious freedom, Palestinian propaganda and President Bush's pressure to vacate the Land to them, Satan's agents on earth who are guardians of his Al Aqsa Mosque on the Jewish Temple Mount so that the Temple to which Messiah Yeshua will return cannot be built. And there in that heathen mosque, Satan himself reigns as he said he would.
President Bush has gone back on his earlier promise to allow the "natural expansion" of settlements in Israel. Now he and Secretary of State Condaleeza Rice are pressuring Prime Minister Sharon to cease the "natural expansion" of Maale Adumim, the single most important West Bank settlement which if developed further will block the Palestinian "beasts of the earth" from making a land grab of East Jerusalem, the Temple Mount, as the capital of their counterfeit state for Satan's permanent throne in the Dome of the Rock.
"Peace" and "Democracy" are the buzz words on the lips of the Bush administration, in Afghanistan, Iraq and the Middle East, as if it would be the magic pill which could transform the "beasts of the earth" (Rev. 7:8) into civilized and loving human beings who will not kill over one fourth of the earth's population as Scripture promises. This is the very nature of Satan, who hides behind the name of Allah, who came "to steal, and to kill, and to destroy." (John 10:10)
"Peace" and "Democracy" are euphemisms, allied with "Mammon," which is actually a spirit that men worship (Wall Street). This alliance constitutes the juggernaut which controls the Black Horse; the worship of money and godless democracy which will lead America into bankruptcy and ultimate collapse at the hand of a jealous God.
We hear these well-intentioned buzz words for this false god at least a dozen times everyday. In the cause of worldwide peace and democracy, Mr. Bush and Condaleeza Rice will scapegoat Israel and pamper the Palestinians in return for an illusory, consequence-free trick promise to co-exist with Israel. And America, Russia, the European Union (particularly the British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, who instigated President Bush) and the United Nations, all hellbent to drive God's wife, Israel, into a fatal embrace with the very monsters who struggle daily to figure out a way to complete the genocide begun by Adolph Hitler, will receive God's judgment.
Did you know that in their brand new school textbooks, the Palestinian "beasts of the earth" present the infamous anti-Semitic lie made up by Russian police, "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion," as historic fact and the secret decision of the First Zionist Congress? ("New PA Text Books Teach Anti-Semitic Forgery as History," Arutz Sheva - Israel National News, 4/11/05). That is why God says,
The Pale Horse Juggernaut - Islam
Would God Use a Tsunami
To Judge Those 'Beasts?'
An Associated Press article of 4/17/05 entitled, "Indonesians Hold Anti-Israel Protests Calling for Protection of the Disputed Al Aqsa Mosque Compound," tells it all. The article is presented here as it fully demonstrates God's rationale behind the recent killer Asian Tsunami.
"Indonesian Muslim protesters display big banner saying 'Save Al Aqsa Mosque' during an anti-Israel protest in Jakarta, Indonesia, Sunday, April 17, 2005. Tens of thousands of people in the world's most populous Muslim country staged the protest against the threat from a right-wing Jewish extremists group to break into Al Aqsa Mosque, known by Jews as the Temple Mount, a site holy to both Jews and Muslims.
"More than 100,000 people held anti-Israel protests Sunday in the Indonesian capital and several other cities, calling for protection of Jerusalem's most sensitive holy site - the disputed Al Aqsa Mosque compound.
"Unfurling big banners saying, 'Save Al Aqsa from raid of the Jewish,' about 80,000 people - mostly conservative Muslims dressed in traditional white garb - marched peacefully down Jakarta's main streets. Some marchers chanted, 'Israel is the terrorist!'
"A group of extremist Jews in Israel called 'Revava' opposes Israel's planned withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and has threatened to storm the Al Aqsa Mosque in July, when Israeli police and soldiers are to evacuate 9,000 settlers from Gaza. Clashes at the site could ignite violence all over the region and force Israel to halt its withdrawal.
"The mosque compound is on a hilltop known as the Temple Mount to Jews and Noble Sanctuary to Muslims. The Al Aqsa Mosque compound, including the shrine marking the spot where Muslims believe Mohammed ascended to heaven, is built over the ruins of the biblical Jewish Temples. (Note: Mohammed never set foot in Jerusalem! He supposedly had a dream that he went up from Mt. Zion.)
"Thousands of Indonesians protested Sunday in Semarang, Lampung, Pekanbaru, Banda Aceh and Makassar. Protesters in Banda Aceh and Makassar trampled on Israeli flags while waving the Palestinian flag.
"Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nation, strongly supports the Palestinian struggle and has no diplomatic ties with Israel.
"Police estimated that more than 100,000 people participated in the protests, organized by the Justice and Prosperity Party, a rapidly growing Islamic-based political party seeking to establish Islamic Sharia law.
"'We are ready to be martyrs to save Al Aqsa because it belongs to Muslims all over the world!' some protesters in Jakarta chanted.
"'We urge the Indonesian government to prioritize the Palestinian issue in the upcoming Asian-African summit,' said Tifaful Sembiring, an organizer of the Jakarta protest."
"Revava," like the Maccabees of antiquity have refused to accede to men like Antiochus Epiphanes of old who forbade the worship of God in the Jewish Temple. It is them that the Muslims, who according to Scripture will kill over a fourth of the earth's population, are protesting. And these Muslims, followers of the Pale Horse juggernaut, brandish their own "replacement theology" which replaces Jehovah, the God of Israel, with "Allah," another counterfeit maneuver of Satan against the God of Israel and His Messiah whose blood descendants are the Jews.
"For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is His name; and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel; He is called the God of the whole earth. For the Lord has called you (Israel) like a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, like a youthful wife when you were refused, says your God. For a mere moment I have forsaken you, but with great mercies I will gather you." (Isaiah 54:5-7)
The Red Horse Juggernaut - The Anti-Christ
An article in The New York Times on April 16, 2005 entitled, "Gorbachev Calls for Global Water Treaty," reports, "Mikhail Gorbachev is pressing world leaders to adopt a treaty guaranteeing clean water and sanitation for their people, a task he says is more daunting than ending the nuclear arms race during the Cold War... Gorbachev will call for a first-ever international water treaty during an April 21 keynote address to the U.N. Commission on Sustainable Development... Gorbachev, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate who led the Soviet Union for six years until its 1991 collapse, founded Green Cross International in 1993 to encourage business, government and non-governmental organizations to collaborate and find solutions to environmental problems."
What's next for this history-maker? Secretary General of the U.N.? (or will that be Bill Clinton's job?) Or President of a revived Soviet Empire?
The Worst is Yet to Come
Are there serious consequences for America driving this renewed persecution of Israel? Perhaps for starters the skyrocketing price of gasoline might signal an emergence of the black horse of poverty (Rev. 6:5-6). And if under the microscope of time we examine tomorrow's newspaper, we might just see Hillary and Bill Clinton riding that black horse into the White House and United Nations, respectively.
We need to hear from you this month! Your tax-deductible gifts support all of Jeremiah Ministries' outreaches - including the prophecy seminars, the teaching newsletters, the TV shows in Atlanta, Birmingham, and now the Philippines (where militant Muslims are trying to take over), the flourishing Schools of Prophecy in Nigeria, where the faithful brethren are being persecuted by blood-thirsty Muslims. But God is faithful! Thank you for laboring with us in Messiah Yeshua's vineyard.
May the God of Israel bless you for your kindness to us as He promised in Genesis 12:3, I will bless them that bless thee!
In Messiah's Love,

The Rosh Hashanah Warning
A Recent Ministry Trip
Wendy and I recently returned from a ministry trip in California where we had 7 meetings from Burbank, to Santa Barbara, to Desert Hot Springs.
I did get to see my new granddaughter, Olivia Grace, and that was quite a highlight for us. What a cutie. Pretty wonderful for a guy who was cut off from his daughters for about twenty years.
We got home just in time to prepare for Hurricane Frances which roared through our property, uprooting 3 grand old trees. But God was faithful to spare us from significant damage though we were right here in the thick of it and we thank Him for His mercy in the midst of His wrath.
We hurt for those who suffered harm, but when the righteous are in the path of God's wrath, they need special mercy, and let me tell you from experience that God answers prayer.
But the water is already boiling and the whistle on the tea kettle can be heard calling "Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand!"
The Restored Throne of David at The End of The Times of the Gentiles
In California, I taught that the "times of the Gentiles" identified in Daniel 2:32-34 and 7:1-8, lay the prophetic groundwork for the identity of the Antichrist in Revelation 13:2. Three sets of Daniel Scriptures (Dan. 2:34-35, 44-45; 7:13-14) make it clear that at the end of the "times of the Gentiles," the throne or dynasty of King David will be rebuilt.
It is on that throne in Jerusalem that Yeshua the Jewish King, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, will sit and reign, and so I taught that we must love the Jews and stand united with them in their hour of danger as the time of the hunters descends upon them. We are one family as the Church is grafted into the Commonwealth of Israel.
A Missionary's Replacement Theology
At the end of the first night of one of my seminars, a world-traveled missionary-teacher came up to me and said, "You know, none of those Jews in Israel are really Jews at all."
Apparently I had ruffled her feathers when I taught about the national salvation of the Jewish people around the world at the end of the times of the Gentiles, following the Church Age. I asked her to explain.
She began spouting off her replacement theology as if I would be in total agreement with her... She thought! I wasn't. It was just the opposite. I am a staunch defender of the truth of the Word of God no matter what the issue.
She said, "I tried to give a book to your wife, Wendy," who was at the tape table in the back of the room, "and after glancing through it she gave it back to me, saying it wasn't Biblical."
Then the missionary woman got rather insistent that I at least take the book and read it in my spare time (as if I had any) and I made it clear that there was no possibility that I would read it or share her zeal for such non-Scriptural anti-Semitic error.
"You know that the Church are the true Jews," she said, "and the Jews in Israel are not Jews at all because they refused to accept Jesus and lost their blessing."
I could not believe my ears that she was saying this to me after I had just taught verse by verse the re-building of the Jewish Tabernacle of David at the end of the Age which would "possess the Gentiles who are called by my name;" the Christians.
I said to her, "This is why we are seeing the phenomena of Gentile Believers attending Messianic congregations, wearing yarmulkes and prayer shawls, blowing shofars, keeping the Feasts of the Lord, dancing Davidic dances, learning Torah, visiting the Land of Israel and even moving there at a dizzying pace."
The Ruth Story Lays The Guidelines
"Remember the Ruth story," I told her, "where Ruth through her love for Naomi, her Jewish mother-in-law, made a commitment to the God of the Hebrews."
"This is God's intention for His Church," I told her; "that the Gentile Believers, as Ruth did, would seek after the God of Naomi, the God of the Jews and be joined to His chosen people. But what would have happened," I said, "if Ruth had gone back to Naomi and said to her, You are not a true Jew, but I am. Your God is my God now and He is not yours anymore. You are no longer a Jew because I am now a Jew and am more beloved of God than you are."
"How do you think God would look on that? If she who had been adopted into the family of God would throw out and exclude the original members of the family by trying to disenfranchise Naomi (as if it were in her power to do so) from her own God. Absurd? No more so than that what the Gentile replacement theologists seek to relegate to the Jews."
The Exclusionary Rapture Theory
One of the major ways that Gentile Believers misplace the Jews is in their exclusionary "rapture theory," so that in their opinion the Jews who gave them the Messiah are not worthy to escape the painful events of the time of "the great tribulation."
This bears the taint of anti-Semitism and the "haughtiness" that Paul warns against.
So imagine the high-mindedness of that missionary who had gleefully grasped the garment (prayer shawl or tzit tzit) of the Jewish Messiah and then cast out the very people who had given Him to her, not to mention the oracles of God that they also gave to the Gentiles in the completely Jewish Scriptures.
This missionary showed no love for His Jewish people even though she had received the love and forgiveness freely given to her, a Gentile, by Him, the Greatest Jew who ever lived.
The Jews are brethren of the Messiah in the primary, blood-line sense even though they mostly do not yet believe in Him. But they will! No empire that had ever persecuted the Jews remains an empire today; obvious proof of His love for and commitment to the Jews.
"Remember the Law of Moses!"
And surely He did say that He would not return to this earth until the seed of Jacob first says, "Baruch Haba B'Shem Adonai," (Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord. (Matt. 23:39). In fact, He is sending Moses and Elijah again to make sure no curse is inherited.
And if we read carefully, we see that He will not return to this earth until the time that the Kingdom of David is restored to Jerusalem.
We need to see that the Church Age is not the final Kingdom Age. In fact, it is clearly followed by the Davidic Age, the time when the Kingdom is restored to Israel.
There is no room for replacement theology when the Lord has made it clear that the Kingdom will be restored to Israel, it's just that He didn't give us the exact time. When will the Kingdom be restored to Israel? At the return of the Lord. How do we know this and when will that be?
The NIV makes an even stronger case for the fact that "He must remain in heaven until the time comes for God to restore everything..."
So then, Messiah Yeshua cannot break Scripture and return for His Church until the time that the Kingdom is restored to Israel. Make sense? Certainly it does, if we are one Body, Jew and Gentile, without any walls of partition
His house shall be a house of prayer for all people.
Note that the Gentile Believers will be offering burnt offerings and sacrifices in the re-built Temple in Jerusalem alongside with the Jews. We need to keep the following Scriptures in mind.
And he who is "grafted in" and became a "partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree" does not replace the root, but shares the blessing with it. Therefore, do not, like that missionary woman, make the mistake of believing that you have replaced the Jew, but rather understand that you have been engrafted into his tree, and together you will suffer through the hard times ahead until the day when we can together enjoy the Kingdom of God on this earth, one family, Jew and Gentile under God.
United We Stand!
And remember, the Gentiles were engrafted into the Commonwealth of Israel. One tree. It makes sense therefore, that "United We Stand, Divided We Fall!" Let us stand as one people against the gathering floods of darkness until we can share in the blessings of the Kingdom of God on this earth in the presence of the returned Messiah Yeshua.
And be diligent to expose that Satanic root of bitterness (that the Church and not the Jews or Israel are the true Jews of God) wherever you run into it! And be certain that you do not bear any enmity to the Jews or to Israel, lest you be found wanting and not able to enter into the Kingdom at the end of this Age.
Also, if there is a choice to be made between standing with a godless American democracy which persecutes Israel and favors worshipers of the false demon-god, Allah, a godless democracy which dismisses a Chief Justice because he displays the Ten Commandments in his Courthouse in Montgomery, Alabama (and notice where Ivan's force made landfall), a godless democracy which allows homosexuals to marry (and a Church which approves of and does the same things), or with God's chosen people and their Land, be sure you make the right choice, and stand with Israel, the Zion of God.
What About The Rosh Hashanah Warning?
Hurricane Ivan slowly made its way up the Gulf of Mexico and lingered offshore until after midnight, Wednesday, and slammed into Alabama and parts of the Florida Panhandle early Thursday, September 16, 2004. Perhaps you didn't know that day was Rosh Hashanah, the civil head of the Jewish New Year! Mark well, that God knows that America, who has been given much, will hasten to betray Israel even as Judas betrayed Yeshua to His death. God knows it and is prejudging that event. Betray Israel in favor of Yasir Arafat and America will fall! Israel and Jerusalem belong eternally to the Jews.
God does not make a covenant with His people one day and void it the next, anymore than a father can forget his child. Like the physical laws of nature, like gravity, the Spiritual laws do not change but have unavoidable consequences. Drop an apple and it will fall to the ground. Likewise, whoever hates the Jews will receive a curse. Every Gentile empire that ever did that ceased to be an empire.
Now because the hour is late and no longer will there be any delay, the Lord would have us to examine our hearts to find out where we truly stand.
Christians have a choice when the mood around the world, America included, swings against Israel and it's no longer safe to wear a prayer shawl.
"Hail, Hail, The Gang's All Here!"
When the Kingdom congeals and all those who were called are present, there will be a voice of rejoicing that will be heard around the universe because the family of God will be complete and none will be left out.
I thank God that you, like Ruth, will be in His Kingdom together with us and will not be left out. We will rejoice together in Jerusalem at the feet of Messiah Yeshua, King of the Universe.

Islam: A Malignancy
The Rider on the Pale Horse characterizes the false religion of Islam. From its inception, Islam has been marked by the power to "kill with sword... with death, and by the beasts (terrorists) of the earth."
The sword of Islam (the Rider on the Pale Horse) is galloping across the face of the earth, killing those who will not submit to their domination ("Death"), and for those who submit, those who are Muslims, they receive "Hades" (Hell) as their reward.
First of all, not every Muslim is a terrorist. Many are called and will repent and become born-again Believers in Yeshua the Jewish Messiah. However, the basic concepts of Islam are decidedly diabolical.
Where Did Islam Come From?
Islam came from Arabia, from the mind of a demonically influenced Arab named Mohammed who was born in 570 AD in Mecca, modern-day Saudi Arabia. By the way, he never set foot in Israel or Jerusalem.
In about 610 AD, Mohammed had a vision of a supernatural satanic being who said to him, "You are the messenger of Allah." From that time until his death in 632 AD, he received "messages" (nothing more than demonic lies) which were collected, written down, and fashioned into the Koran in about 650 AD, eighteen years after Mohammed's death.
Islam claims that Mohammed was the last prophet after the Biblical prophets Abraham, Noah, Jesus, etc., and his messages are supposed to negate and supercede the words of the prophets in the Bible.
But Scripture is very clear that no one should add to or take away from the Word of God.
Allah Is Not God
The media will tell you that "Allah" means "God." But that is not true. Allah is an Arabic word that originally was used to describe a "high god" who stood above the lesser deities.
The Koran calls Allah "the Lord of the Ka'bah." The Ka'bah was a pagan shrine in the city of Mecca, a sanctuary of Arab pagans, a center of pagan worship. So, Allah is a pagan deity. A demon.
When Islam states "there is no god but Allah," they are acting as front men for Satan who said,
The media will tell you that "Allahu Akhbar" means "God is great." That is also not true. The correct translation is "Allah is greater." The Muslims are saying that their demon-god, Allah, is greater than the one true God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Father of our Lord Yeshua.
Islam Is A Malignancy
Islam is a malignancy, as you will see. A good portion of this newsletter is taken from Chapter 11 of my book, "While The Fiddler Played, The World Came To An End," which can be purchased securely online from our website or by order form.
New Webster's Dictionary of the English Language defines "malignant" as follows:
"Having extreme enmity or malevolence; malicious; exerting pernicious influence. Pathol. increasing in danger and size, as a tumor; not benign; virulent; tending to cause death."
You can substitute the word "Islam" for the definition of malignancy and it makes the point.
Islam has extreme malevolence; Islam is malicious; Islam exerts a pernicious influence (even in this country where Muslims have been invited to the White House); Islam increases in danger and size; Islam is virulent and tends to cause death.
The Encyclopedia Britannica's definition:
"Malignancy refers to the ability of a tumor to ultimately cause death. Malignancy implies an inherent tendency of the tumor's cells to metastasize, to invade the body widely and become disseminated by subtle means, and eventually to kill the patient unless all the malignant cells can be eradicated.
"The outstanding characteristic of malignancy is the tendency of tumor cells to wander from their site of origin by way of the circulatory system and other channels, and establish growth of these cells in almost every tissue and organ of the body. The dissemination of malignant cells, each one having the ability to give rise to new masses in new and distant sites, precludes complete eradication by a single surgical procedure unless found early.
"A benign tumor may transform into a malignant
