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
Yeshua’s 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 Yeshua’s 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 Satan’s 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 Satan’s 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 Israel’s 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 eagle’s wings." (Daniel 7:4)
Scripturally, the "lion" speaks of ancient Babylon on the Euphrates River and the "eagle’s 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 Joseph’s 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 Israel’s 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 God’s 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 eagles’ 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 Yeshua’s 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 Satan’s intended destruction.
And, dear friends, that is why Satan’s 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 Satan’s 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 Lord’s 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 God’s wrath! Gird yourself for what’s 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? Man’s 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 God’s 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. Bush’s 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 God’s response to Bush’s 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 Israel’s 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.
God’s 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 Bush’s 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 God’s 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.
God’s footprints marked the event. The 777.68 stock market meltdown occurred on the eve of Rosh Hashanah, God’s 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 News’ 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 don’t think it’s 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. "It’s 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." It’s 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 PM’s 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 God’s chosen people... because they have relative safety there.
"A Chip On Obama’s 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 – and it’s not helpful to our civilization. Peters, who wrote ‘Endless War: Middle Eastern Islam vs. Western Civilization,’ was asked to explain why he felt American-Israeli friendship appears to have been derailed so dramatically. ‘The answer is two words,’ he said. ‘President Obama.’
"‘Obama’s treatment of Netanyahu [during their recent meeting in Washington] was disgraceful and shameful,’ Peters told Fox News. ‘We treat our enemies with greater courtesy! In addition, it was counter-productive – because this vendetta on the part of the White House against Israel – 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 President’s shoulder.’
"‘Obama’s approach is absolutely a departure from past American policy. It all started with Obama’s Cairo speech,’ Peters said, ‘where Obama attempted to appease radical Muslims in the Middle East, cold-shouldered Israel, and raised Palestinian expectations that he’d 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 – always! - the Palestinians who walked away.’ Obama Refuses to Recognize the Basic Equation.
"‘The American animosity towards Israel is not about housing in Jerusalem or anything else,’ Peters emphasized. ‘We 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.’
"‘It’s become a credo of the left-wing that Israel is always the oppressor,’ Peters continued, ‘and that the Palestinian terrorists are freedom fighters, etc. … Obama’s mother was extremely left, his university chums are on the left, he spent 20 years with the Rev. Wright – 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 osmosis… This is our first anti-Israeli President; it’s 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.’"
The Apple of God’s 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 UNRWA’s 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 Israel’s ability to effectively deal with Iran’s nuclear facilities which endanger Israel’s 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 Washington’s 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 won’t obey!
8) He encourages Arabs to protest in parts of Israel’s capital in order to pressure Israel to evacuate neighborhoods. He does not recognize Israel’s claim to key parts of the capital, including much of eastern and northern Jerusalem as Israel’s 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 Israel’s 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 Biden’s visit to Israel.
Hillary & Israeli Foreign Minister Spar
"The relationship of ‘good friends agree to disagree’ 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, ‘We want to see a stop to the settlements.’ Foreign Minister Lieberman, who himself lives in the settlement of Nokdim, south of Jerusalem, did not flinch and retorted, ‘We 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.’
The confrontation escalated with the Clinton-Lieberman sparring match. Their opposing positions were not new, but their public standoff ‘appeared 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 Lieberman’s claim that Israel had reached "some understandings" with the Bush administration.
She reiterated her rejection of former President George W. Bush’s 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 country’s "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 Satan’s 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 God’s 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 Daniel’s 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) America’s "rebellion" against God’s 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 Zion’s 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?
God’s 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 God’s "Foreign Policy Statement" and yet you barely ever hear about it from Christian pastors who are largely indifferent to God’s 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?
I’ll 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 America’s 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 image’s 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 God’s perfect number, symbolizing "completion," or, in other words, the approaching completion of all things in God’s 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 Solomon’s 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 God’s 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") Isn’t it amazing that the derivative of the name "Obama" would therefore be "a pagan high place." Now consider Israel’s 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 God’s 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 ("It’s 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 man’s 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 Lord’s 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 party’s unrighteous platform simply because he’s Jewish, and the Jewish people suffered untold horrors, far worse than slavery, and don’t 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!

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 one. It is possible for a malignant tumor to remain quiescent, mimicking a benign one clinically, for a long time. Some tumors are benign from the start and remain so; others are apparently malignant from their moment of origin; and finally a few appear to change from benign to malignant..."
When you hear people describe Islam as a religion of peace, remember that it is possible for a malignant tumor to mimic a benign one, and some tumors can change from benign to malignant.
There is nothing peaceful about a religion that preaches submit to Allah or die by the sword. There is nothing peaceful about a religion whose adherents strap bombs to themselves and blow up busloads full of innocent women and children in Israel, who rig car bombs to explode daily in Iraq, and who hi-jack airplanes and crash them into giant buildings.
A few years ago, at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, about 5,000 people attended the annual meeting of the Muslim Arab Youth Association. In the middle of the meeting, a speaker suddenly announced that a Palestinian had bombed a bus in Jerusalem, killing himself and wounding 12 Israelis. The crowd roared with shouts of praise, "Allahu Akhbar." In Chicago no less. The enemy within.
Recently, the civilized Judeo-Christian world was horrified when Islamic terrorist "beasts of the earth" brutally cut off the heads of two Americans and one South Korean. In the video of Nick Berg's gruesome murder, the terrorist raised his "sword" and thrust it wildly into the neck of the screaming victim. The Muslim world cheered. Make no mistake about it, the religion of the "sword" is not peaceful.
Here are some comparisons of Islam/the Rider on the Pale Horse with a malignant tumor. To wit:
1) Tends to cause death. What is it about Islam that causes so much suffering and death? Hatred is at the heart of it.
Mohammed was an Arab. The Arabs come from Ishmael and Esau, not the chosen line, and have inherited their fathers' genetic makeup. The Word of God specifically delineates their characteristics. Of Esau, He said:
Esau's hatred, an evil malignancy in his heart, has lurked in the hearts of his descendants (the Arabs) through the ages. It was a hatred born out of bitter jealousy of his brother, Jacob, to whom was given the blessing of the birthright and the promise.
Esau was not cheated out of the birthright as is commonly parroted in the popular but incorrect ecclesiastical rubric which has incited many to fall into the sin of anti-Jewish and pro-Arab sentiment.
It was God's will from the beginning that Jacob should receive the blessing, as He said to Rebekah:
The King James version refers to Jacob as a "mild" or "plain" man (Gen. 25:27). This is an erroneous translation of the Hebrew word, "tawm," which means "complete, usually pious, gentle, dear, perfect, plain, undefiled and upright." It is used elsewhere in the Bible to describe Job as a "perfect" man (Job 1:8).
Thus, rather than a mild or plain man, Scripture accurately translated from the Hebrew describes Jacob as "a perfect, pious, dear and gentle man." Esau is described quite differently.
It was never God's plan that Esau, the father of the Arab nations (and Ishmael, another father of the Arabs) should receive God's blessing in the first place. One reason is that He knew in advance what Esau would be like. Of Esau, the Lord said:
But isn't it so that the inheritor of a blessing is frequently the object of scorn and jealousy? Abel found favor with God, and was scorned because of it. Out of jealousy and anger, Cain killed his brother.
Although Jacob wasn't murdered, he was despised and called a cheat and was accused of stealing his brother Esau's blessing even though it was clearly Jacob's by virtue of God's will.
Similarly, Ishmael scorned and mocked his half-brother, Isaac.
The Lord told Abraham to cast out Hagar and Ishmael, "for in Isaac shall thy seed be called." Of Ishmael, the Lord said to Hagar:
Esau married Ishmael's daughter and thus the two clans merged. Their descendants are today's Arabs, which are generically called "Edom" in the Bible.
Moses had some dealings with Edom when traveling to the Promised Land. He said to them:
The Arab hatred of the Jewish people continues unabated. But the Lord has an end-time plan, and it is based upon His promise in Genesis 12:3, to bless those who bless Israel, and curse those who curse His chosen people.
2) The tendency of a tumor's cells to invade the body and become disseminated by subtle means and eventually to kill the patient:
Islam moves into other nations, and after having gained subtle entrance into countries, cities, jobs, administrative positions and other strategic places indigenous to the society, there then follows terror planning and activities; suicide bombings, blowing up of U.S. Embassies in Kenya, the horrific atrocities that happened on 9/11.
3) The tendency of tumor cells to wander from their site of origin and establish cells in almost every tissue and organ of the body roughly parallels the origination of Islam in the Middle East and its rapid spread throughout other countries and continents of the world such as the United States, France, Britain, Germany, Canada, Africa, Eastern Europe and even the Scandinavian countries are inundated.
Islam is the fastest growing and second largest religion in the U.S. More mosques are being built in America than churches and synagogues.
The Ibrahim Bin Abdulaziz al-Ibrahim Foundation of the Saudi royal family has been building mosques to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars in cities not traditionally associated with Islam, such as Dusseldorf, Gibraltar, Caracas, Milan and Moscow.
Make no mistake about it, Islam intends to dominate the world and force all peoples to submit to their demon-god, Allah. Most of the African continent has succumbed, and those who resist, like the Christians in Sudan, are mercilessly tortured and murdered. The sword of Islam continues to spread, and according to Revelation 6:8, they will get one fourth of the whole earth. (The photo to the right is from www.gamla.org.il.)
What's The Solution?
When malignant cancer is discovered in a person, the medical response is to eradicate all the cells before it kills the patient.
But it is not possible for the government to fully eradicate the terror cells in this country. It is not possible to tell the millions of Muslims to go back to their own countries.
This malignancy can only be overcome by appropriating the blood of the Lamb of God, the sacrificial act of Jesus - but only as to salvation and not the replacement of the Jews or the inheritance of their promises from God, including their right to the Land of Israel and their chosenness before Him.
The governments of the civilized world can send armies to fight against the Islamic terrorists, but our best weapon in this fierce spiritual battle is the Gospel of salvation, repentance, forgiveness and love through faith in the blood of Yeshua. One person at a time. Do you know a Muslim? Have you told him about Jesus? Be sure to mention that He is the Jewish Messiah!

The Eagle Flies - A War Analysis
On the morning of March 3, 2003, I saw in vision "an eagle with wings extended, rising up in full flight." Not knowing the interpretation, I waited on the Lord until He spoke the word "Bozrah" into my spirit. Ancient Bozrah was an important city in Edom (present day Jordan) about 18 miles southeast of the Dead Sea. The above-quoted Scripture amplifies what the Lord is saying in conjunction with the present situation between the US and Iraq.
When Jeremiah spoke of the attacking "eagle" in 600 BC, he was referring to the ancient kingdom of Babylon, modern day Iraq, which would fly against and destroy Edom.
Today, by way of analogy, the "eagle" would be America (Rev.12:14) and "the mighty men of Edom" would represent Saddam's barbaric regime which will be "like a woman in birth pangs," and that will represent God's justice.
Interestingly enough, "Basrah," spelled a little differently than the Biblical city, is the name of the second largest city in Iraq, which is now reasonably under the control of the allied coalition. Whatever, it is clear that the Lord is saying that the victory will be momentous and not just in Basrah, but in Baghdad, and throughout all of Iraq.
Haman Hanged Instead of Mordecai
It was on Wednesday, March 19th (Adar II 15), the second day of Purim, that the war started in earnest with a definitive missile attack against an Iraqi leadership command bunker. It is highly possible that Saddam and several of his top leadership, including at least one of his sons, were killed or injured in the attack. Frantic digging through the rubble was shortly thereafter sited by overhead American intelligence facilities. Saddam was even reported to have been seen being carried on a stretcher into an ambulance with an oxygen mask on his face. If he was indeed eliminated on Purim, would that not be a fitting end for a modern-day Haman, enemy of the Jews!
Our February 16, 2002 Prophecy
Here is what we reported in the "Hear the Word of the Lord" page of our website, a year ago on February 16, 2002. On this page we report vital prophecies from the Lord. Back then, I said that God would pay back to Saddam, measure for measure, what he had done to the Jewish people and their homeland during the 1991 Gulf War:
"Saddam Hussein applied 39 SCUD missile blows (39 stripes) against the back of Israel...
"He (the Lord) has had it up to here with the patrons of Arab oil wealth, the USA, the United Nations, France, the entire anti-Semitic European Union and their leaders, bullying and raping His little Land and chosen people by mandating a nation of 'Palestine' on land given by Him to His people as an eternal everlasting possession to which no Arab has ever had any Biblical rights.
"Thus, when His hand releases the jagged thunderbolts which shall hit and punish Saddam and whoever else systematically applies the whip to the backs of His beloved Israel, do not be surprised, but know that He Himself has done it."
Thank God For President Bush
America is doing the right thing, fighting against Saddam Hussein's terrorist regime. It's like taking up the sword of God against His enemy, Satan. There is another angle that Biblically justifies this war. Iraq is a sworn enemy of Israel, dedicated to destroying the Jewish state. By implication, any enemy of Israel is an enemy of God.
I am proud of President Bush and the fighting forces. He is a hero who has withstood the withering opposition of millions of protesters around the world who are actually fighting against the God of Israel.
The prince of the power of the air (Eph. 2:2), Satan himself, threw his best demonic weapons against the allied forces, like violent, raging, blinding sandstorms, lightning and hail, suicide bombers and other barbaric tactics against the allied soldiers and their own people, in some cases forcing them to fight under the threat of death to themselves, their wives and their children.
My hat's off to you, President Bush, and all of those who were willing to take a stand for what is right. And I believe that God is pleased as well!
An Interesting Analogy Between Iraq & Demons
If you've ever witnessed the deliverance of a demonized human being, as I have many times in the course of my ministry, you would have noticed a marked similarity between the bluster, lies, violence and death threats of the Iraqi leadership and the propaganda of the Arab press, and of the demons' about to be cast out.
Such threats are typically made by voices coming out of the mouths of the person who is going to be delivered: bogus and unenforceable threats of harm, violence and death to the person about to be set free and to the deliverance minister himself; this is so run-of-the-mill as to be typical.
The Behind-The-Scenes Rider on the Pale Horse
The Rider on the Pale Horse (and his Islamic hordes) is a beast which is destined to annihilate a fourth of the world's population. Scripture calls them "the beasts of the earth." These are the barbaric heathen Muslims, "the floods of ungodly men" (Psalm 18:4) who are opposed to the One true God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and His only begotten Son, Yeshua the Messiah.
And soon the beast with many heads will lash out against Jews, Christians, and anyone who opposes their anti-Christ plan for world domination.
Saddam & Terrorists
Thousands of terrorist volunteers are reportedly rushing to the side of Saddam, who kills the innocent and anyone who opposes him. Arabs from surrounding countries are being whipped into a frenzy of hate by Muslim clerics. They are uniting not in love for each other or Iraq, but in hatred of America, Christians and Jews, and are ready to die as martyrs for Allah.
Ever heard of a "Martyrdom Application?" It's like an insane job application. Some of the fighters went to the Iraqi embassies in their own countries and filled out a "martyrdom application," which allows them to fight in Iraq.
The volunteer terrorists are taught that the proper way to throw a hand grenade includes saying, "Allah is great. Allah is greater than the Americans, and the Jews, and Allah is greater than Zionism."
Saddam Hussein and his vicious, unprincipled henchmen are not in the least concerned with moral or principled behavior, only with the perpetuation of the Islamic lie. Why? Because this is Satan's agenda, and as he is a beast and a liar, so are his offspring as they assist him in his earthly battle against the King of Kings, to wrench control of the Kingdom of Heaven away from the Son of God and His people. But it is written, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay, says the Lord." (Romans 12:19)
Do Not Fall For The Old Shell & Pea Trick!
I watch in tears, overcome with emotions of pride and gratitude, as American and British soldiers fight so courageously, some dying for a just cause. As humanitarians, they carefully guard the lives and dignity of Iraqi civilians under orders from President Bush while in sharp contrast, the Iraqi soldiers brutalize them. Smilingly, our soldiers pass out food and water to the starving Iraqis, and over and over again it makes me proud to be an American.
Too bad Mr. Bush wasn't President when Adolph Hitler was killing 6,000,000 Jews. He wouldn't have stood by and allowed it to happen.
But here's Satan's trap for our President, and I am praying that he will overcome. As proud as I am of him, I am grieved to report the following.
The New York Times, on 2/27/2003, reported that President Bush declared "that removing Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq... could set the stage for peace between Israel and a 'truly democratic' Palestinian state."
The President also declared that Israel "will be expected to support the creation of a viable Palestinian state." He said "as progress is made toward peace, settlement activity in the occupied territories must end."
Condoleeza Rice, National Security Advisor, speaking to AIPAC last week, said that the creation of a Palestinian state is "non-negotiable." In other words, Israel will be forced to accept their plan.
It is very interesting that the shuttle Columbia broke up over Palestine, TX. And the POW, Jessica Lynch, is from Palestine, WV. Is God telling the nations to drop the plan to create a state of Palestine?
I quote here from The Golden Report, written by a friend of mine, Jerry Golden, from Jerusalem.
"How can Saddam Hussein be guilty of war crimes and Yasser Arafat isn't? Is it because Arafat's victims have been Jews? It seems to me that when Yasser Arafat sends out his young people dressed in explosive belts to kill themselves and as many innocent Israeli civilians as they can, that would be a war crime. In fact, it would occur to me that would be a crime, period. I have lost count of the times he has sent his suicide bombers into Jewish neighborhoods dressed like IDF soldiers, knock on the door of unsuspecting Jews, and then kill them in cold blood. One such Islamic-murdering spree as I remember was a mother reading bedtime stories to her two small children. Several have happened while Jews were having their Kiddush (Friday evening meal welcoming in the Sabbath).
"Or how about sending their children out to throw stones at IDF soldiers while the Islamic Palestinians terrorists shoot from hidden places behind the children when the IDF soldiers show themselves... Or when he sends these Islamic brainwashed youth into our city buses and café's killing us by the dozens. Is that not a war crime?
"How about the hundreds of his own people he has had killed simply because they were suspected of collaborating with the Israelis...
"So could some one tell me how Yasser Arafat is not a Terrorist but Saddam Hussein is?
"I just heard President Bush and Tony Blair both repeat themselves that there must be a Palestinian State. So why is Yasser Arafat rewarded by being given his own State for killing Jews, and Saddam is a war criminal for killing Iraqis? And I must ask where is the Jewish outcry from the Jews in America, or Europe? Is it because they will not let go of the wealth and life in these places...
"And where is the Christians' outcry, or has the Church fallen so deeply into a stupor and sleep that they once again will sit by and witness another holocaust without opening their mouths in protest. May God have pity on us all, for His judgment is soon coming." (See the end of this newsletter for ways you can make your voice heard.)
How typically unjust! All the nations agree that the Jews are expendable, but they can't agree to removing a dangerous megalomaniac from power. Thank God there is a just God in heaven who loves and will protect Israel from those rabid demagogues who have taken the side of Satan against God, against His ancient people, and against His mandate that the Land will eternally belong to them. Whoever tries to take it away from them will pay the price as spoken by Zechariah.
A State of Palestine on Israel's Land by 2005
The New York Times on March 14th reported that Mr. Bush is "poised to present a detailed road map for Israeli-Palestinian peace... a Palestinian State by 2005..." effective death to "Israeli settlements"... and an end to "the contested status of Jerusalem and of Palestinian refugees" (which would cause the overrunning of Jewish Lands with Arabs and the end of it as a Jewish homeland).
He repeated his call for a Palestinian state on Thursday, March 27, 2003, during a press conference with Tony Blair after they met at Camp David.
The New York Times also reported that Bush's statement came as "a result of pressure from British Prime Minister Tony Blair," who has been insisting that the White House adopt the plan for a Palestinian state "to quell the anger throughout the Arab world over Bush's perceived focus on Iraq."
Dear President Bush, Hear Our Prayer
Please President Bush, I am praying for you that you will not make the same mistake that your father did in 1991 by scapegoating Israel. Your father offered up Israel as a sacrifice to the Arabs with "The Madrid Peace Conference," which resulted in the Oslo Accords and the deaths of thousands of Jews; the Arabs becoming more and more emboldened by US capitulation to their lies, and instead of getting peace, we got the intifada.
A promise to reward the Arab terrorists with a nation of Palestine on Israel's little remaining land will not bring peace; just the opposite. Satan is waiting gleefully for victory. Shall we give it to him by falling for the old walnut shell and pea trick?
President Bush, please don't capitulate to the pressure and designs of the "Quartet," consisting of the perverse UN, the ignoble French, the Israel-unfriendly European Union, and Russia. Those four will always choose unwisely to implement Satan's schemes where Israel is concerned rather than follow the Word of God.
But you know the Word of God, and that is why I'm praying that you won't throw God's chosen people to the lions.
President Bush, you are not like other American presidents. You have forced Yasser Arafat to comply with certain conditions, bravely stood up to Saddam Hussein, and launched a global war on terror. Ariel Sharon said you are "the best friend Israel has had in the White House" in a long time.
President Bush, I pray that you will not cave in to pressure from Arab sympathizers and appeasers, but that you will stand strong on the Word of God, supporting Israel's right to exist on the Land given to her for an eternal possession by the Lord God.

The Elections - A Kingdom Divided Cannot Stand
It is my prayer for you, dear friends, that you do not become apathetic on the heels of such a great turnabout on the political scene following the national elections. Now that the Biblically incorrect, the nay-sayers to God, are no longer in control of the senate, do not be fooled by feelings of euphoria... because all will not remain as well as it seems.
Prophetically, there is a "sword of Damocles" hanging over the heads of the Jewish people and their land, Israel. Just around the corner it will fall and then will come "great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be." (Matt. 24:21) "For behold the day is coming, burning like an oven, and all the proud, yes all who do wickedly will be stubble. And the day which is coming shall burn them up, says the Lord of hosts." (Mal. 4:1)
At that time, it won't just be the Jewish people who will suffer, but all the true disciples of the Lord Yeshua. Remember ancient Rome when the Believers were fed to lions for sport? Thus Yeshua's often disregarded warning: "He who endures to the end shall be saved." (Matt. 24:13) You wouldn't hear this warning in the "Left Behind" B-rated movies and books. Those fantasies will lead to the greatest Christian falling away imaginable in the near future.
America: God-Pleaser or Foe?
We have witnessed the explosion of Islam as the fastest growing religion in the United States, the celebration of the last day of "Ramadan" in the White House last year, the endorsement of statehood for the Palestinians on Biblically Jewish land, and now a Peace Conference in Washington, DC on December 20, 2002, and we wonder what's going on?
The Democrats are now the defeated minority, the Republicans are back in power in the Senate, and yet the November 25, 2002 New York Times reports in an article titled, "U.S. to Host Talks on Mideast Peace; the Bush administration will host a conference of top U.S., U.N., Russian and European ministers next month." (the so-called Quartet)
One of the major objectives is that they will be "working on the details of a pathway to Palestinian statehood by 2005.Secretary of State Colin Powell will host the meeting."
The wholesale slaughter of innocent Jews on buses, in malls and restaurants, even worshipers as they walk from the house of God on the Sabbath in Hebron, continues. The streets in Jerusalem are washed down almost daily with the blood of innocents, even babies, horrific in the sight of the Jewish King, Adonai, and Washington is planning to reward the killers with the gift of a state of "Palestine" on Biblically Jewish land.
Rewarding terrorists is not appropriate behavior in the sight of a just God, who is the Great Superpower, not America. He's not impressed either with the easy expressions of loose-lipped euphemisms like "God bless America," when the hearts of so many of those speakers are disinterested in the truth of His word.
Calling oneself a "Christian" in and of itself is not what pleases a just God. It would serve America better if the fervent flag-wavers were fervent God-pleasers first. America sacrificing Israel to appease the Muslims will not earn it a blessing, but a curse. Find me a world power that did that before America and is still a world power. Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome, Germany, Great Britain? Will we learn a lesson from history or will we blindly walk to our destruction? Little Israel will still be there no matter what America decides to do.
Polarity - A Kingdom Divided
If there is a "polarity" in America, one being President Bush and the other, Colin Powell and the State Department, perhaps there needs to be a "firing" before this country is "fired on" again by an angry God, and we've already seen enough of that with earthquakes, and tornadoes and terrorism, etc.
Remember two things: (1) a sovereign God does not need to seek permission from a State Department which is beating up on His beloved Israel to whom He is "married" (Jeremiah 3:14) before responding "measure for measure;" and 2) our sovereign God is NOT ALLAH, and the people of Allah are not His people! But they can become His people by repenting of their hatred and murder and by receiving Yeshua the Jewish Messiah and King of Israel (not Palestine).
There is coming a great "debacle" because of the failure of the White House to prevail over the State Department. The God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon will not be fooled by slick rhetoric while there is a loaded gun being placed at the head of His beloved Israel.
So, America, "Choose ye this day whom you will serve." (Joshua 24:15)
You can't serve two gods. You can't serve the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and at the same time try to appease the false god of Islam, Allah.
"This Is Wickedness"
There is looming just ahead a woman whom Zechariah prophesied about, "This is wickedness." (Zech. 5:8) She soared to power in 2000 AD in "that great city (New York City) which reigns over the kings (United Nations representatives) of the earth." (Rev. 17:18) This modern-day woman is the spitting image 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 couldn't get his way. (1 Kings 21: 1-16) She is the one who will become the 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)
This great City, which is her initial power base, sits "on many waters" and is located in the only superpower nation in the world today, a modern-day republic like Rome was. And from that great City, the 2 million or so Jewish people will have to be liberated just as they were liberated from ancient Egypt by Moses.
We desire to have a hand in this task through our three Biblical musicals that were created for such a time as this, which must be performed in New York City to reach the Jewish people spiritually enslaved there. In fact, an Egyptian obelisk sits on a grassy knoll behind the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Fifth Avenue at 80th Street in New York City, a tribute to the sun god, Ra. It was brought there from Egypt in the late 1800's, and is the same obelisk which was in Egypt at the time of the Exodus led by Moses somewhere around 1500 BC.
"The Apple of His Eye"
God has always made His great love for the Jewish people a standard for measuring how he will deal with the Gentile nations, even those which call themselves "Christian nations:" As they treat His Jewish people, so He will treat them, measure for measure. Zechariah said that to Babylon which had taken Judah and Jerusalem captive in 586 BC.
So, when violent judgments unexpectedly impact the nations today, like the violent tornados that criss-crossed America recently, we will find that the smoking gun in the hand of the Lord has been discharged "for Zion's sake." (Isa. 62:1)
The World Trade Center disaster in New York City on September 11, 2001 was a case in point. You probably didn't know that on the eve of that dreadful day, America had made the anti-biblical decision to announce in the General Assembly of the United Nations the implementation of a new policy: the endorsement of a State of Palestine. No American administration had ever used the word "Palestine" in that connection in public before. The destruction of the Trade Towers in New York City marked only a beginning.
God says that He is married to Israel. (Jer. 3:14) Any nation that mistreats Israel will have to deal with Him. Woe unto anyone who puts my beautiful wife, Wendy, in harm's way. And I'm not nearly as big or tough as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who over the years has honored and blessed America because of its friendship toward Israel.
A Triggering Device
The fall of the towers was the "triggering device" for the reconstruction after 2,600 years of the Tabernacle of David, the building up of the Lord's Kingdom. Persecution against the Jewish people will be the pressure point that leads to their salvation. That is when they will call out to the Lord saying, "Baruch Haba B'shem Adonai," which in Hebrew means "Blessed is He that comes in the name of the Lord." (Psalm 118:26; Matt. 23:39)
At the same time that severe judgments broke like a tidal wave over New York City, an unheralded, unanticipated new beginning for the Jewish people (and also for the non-Jewish true disciples of the Lord who like Ruth are lovers of the Jewish people) also broke forth.
What new thing began on 9/11?
Thus on 9/11, the Amos 9:11 prophecy began to be fulfilled in New York City and around the world as persecution against the Jews doubled overnight. And interestingly, and not often understood either by the Jewish people or by the Christians for the most part, it is also from New York City that the 2 million or so Jewish inhabitants will need to be brought out by a modern-day Moses, one of the two witnesses, (Rev. 11:3-10) in a contemporary Exodus to Israel, the Land of their forefathers. Much of the work of these two witnesses will be done in America early on.
Did you know that America has about 6,000,000 Jewish people, the single largest Jewish population in the world today aside from Israel? Remember that Pharaoh who knew Joseph and his family was replaced by one who didn't, and then the trouble began.
No Pain, No Gain
Every mother would quickly acknowledge the veracity of the statement that birth comes through labor and and that labor is painful. But when the baby is born the pain is soon forgotten.
Well, the labor pains for the birth of the Tabernacle of David began in New York City on 9/11. This signaled the approximate end of the Church Age, and the beginning of the destruction of the last Gentile kingdoms of this earth.
At the same time it also marked the beginning of the building up of the infrastructure for the Kingdom of God; the Davidic Throne (Daniel 2:45-45), the commencement of that mighty transitional move of God's Spirit which will lead ultimately to the new millennium and the return of the King of the Jews and High Priest, our own Yeshua Ha Mashiach.
"Prepare The Way of the Lord!"
There is another scripture that aptly describes that which began on 9/11/01.
In 1972, while a practicing attorney for the Broadway theater, I had a remarkable spiritual experience that resulted in my finding Yeshua as my Messiah. I was lifted into heaven and seated on the lap of the Father where He said to me, "You will build for me a new house of worship." It was for this reason that I wrote my musicals, "Rabboni," and "Mendel & Moses."
David's Restored Kingdom
The Lord will now pour out a brand new anointing causing the salvation of the Jewish people around the world. On one hand, there will be destruction of the Gentile kingdoms and on the other, salvation of the Jewish people. This is the beginning of the restoration of the Tabernacle of David, a Jewish work, the new house of worship that would be built.
And little did I know that God had planned to use my trilogy of musicals, "Rabboni," "Mendel & Moses," and "The Time of Mendel's Trouble," to help draw the Jewish people to Him and to warn them of the impending savagery against them which would be even more horrible than the Holocaust.
The Messianic Performing Arts Center
Jeremiah Ministries has established the Messianic Performing Arts Center where we have been giving first class operatic concerts and theatrical performances for over one year.
A few weeks ago we produced showcase performances of two of our musicals. I talked to at least ten unsaved Jewish people over cake and coffee after the shows. To do this work, I've had to put aside my tent-making (giving prophecy seminars in distant cities) in order to stay in town and teach Torah at Mishkan David (which means Tabernacle of David), teaching Jew and non-Jew alike the Jewish roots of the faith.
There are nearly one million unsaved Jewish souls here in south Florida. Now that it is the end of the Church Age and the beginning of the Zion Age when the Tabernacle of David is to be restored, we must reach out to the unsaved Jewish souls in this area. There is no time to dilly dally.
Seven performers in tuxedos and evening dress presenting songs and scenes from our musicals made for an exciting event, but our vision goes way beyond that. We plan to build a 1,000-seat theater where we will present our trilogy of biblical musicals year round.
In addition to theater, there is much teaching and preparation to be done before the days of darkness close in. This new Davidic house of worship that we must build for the Lord will be a house of worship for all people without walls of partition. But it must also be a Jewish work of the Lord not of rabbinic tradition so that the Jewish people will not feel estranged. I understand this because that was the way that I was made to feel; like an outcast.
Also, the Jewish King will return to a Jewish work where they teach about His Feasts, His Torah, His Sabbaths. After all, He is the faithful One whom the Jewish people have not known for two thousand years, but this must be changed. Because this is the set and appointed time for the blessing of Zion and for the rebuilding of the Tabernacle, the throne or dynasty of David. The Son of David, Yeshua Ha Mashiach (Jesus), will return and be seated there. It must be "a House of Prayer for all nations." (Isaiah 56:7)
So as the World Trade Towers toppled right in the middle of the international financial system, the "pressure cooker" began to break open the tough external fibre revealing the sweet internal core of the Jewish souls worldwide. They began to sizzle and steam, persecution streaming into action, cooking and softening the hardness of hearts and removing the veil from two thousand year-old blinded eyes and hardened necks. Now the bottom line: Will you help us with this great end-time ministry, the in-gathering of the lost sheep of the House of Israel?
The People Had Offered Willingly
This is a race with time. Every second counts. Please join Wendy and me in this work of building God's Tabernacle at this critical juncture. Enter into the work of building this new house of worship with us. Join us in being a bastion of light to the Jewish people and true Christians during the frightful time that approaches.
Maybe you couldn't help during the Holocaust because you weren't there. But you are here now and you can help. United we stand and divided we fall. Please be generous and help us cover the expenses of this work as we build for the King. You can make a secure, one-time donation online using your credit card by clicking on Donate.
With love in Messiah Yeshua,
Jeremiah & Wendy Ginsberg
Now is the season of Thanksgiving and Hanukkah, and remembering the birth of Messiah. We wish you every blessing from heaven, good health and Shalom!

A Burning Bush
America is burning! America is burning because a Burning Bush has ignited raging fires and is adding oil to them daily. This Burning Bush has instituted a massive "measure for measure" retribution against America by the God of Israel for causing the deaths of hundreds of His chosen people; by thwarting Israel's efforts at self-defense; and lately, by offering their sworn enemies, the Arabs, a reward for their terror campaign against Jewish grandmothers, grandfathers, babies, school children, rabbis, mall shoppers and countless others who did not harm a single hair on anyone's head: a Bush plan for a provisional Palestinian State... on the Land that God gave to Israel.
The words of George Bush, "It is untenable for Palestinians to live in squalor and occupation.... My vision is two states, living side by side, in peace and security... Israel also has a large stake in the success of a democratic Palestine," (NY Times 6/24/02) are a vexation to me.
Why? Because an inch a pinch, here a little, there a little until the collective conscience of the democratic world has been turned off. Blaming Israel today for the squalor that the Palestinians' own leaders and their own lack of creative industry have caused is misplaced zeal at best.
Bush says, "It is untenable for Israeli citizens to live in terror."
I say offer a little comfort to the Israelis today, and tomorrow no one would remember just how a Palestinian State got there; especially the Jews who were anesthetized to think that they were getting a good thing from a friend, until all of a sudden there was a Palestinian state next door to them... on their own God-given homeland. And the Bush rip tide did its work! No more sand on the beach. The old disappearing land trick. But entirely too late to turn back the tides of time. The trick anesthetization will have succeeded just like the devil knew it would.
The Right Hand of Fellowship
So while Bush offers Israel the right hand of fellowship, he gives them the left foot of expulsion from their land. And because, as a condition for getting the provisional state, Bush is insisting that the Palestinians get rid of Arafat (although since Bush's speech, Secretary of State Powell seems to have backed down on that front already) and replace him with a democratic government, the Israelis are swooning with gratefulness. As if a Hanan Ashwari instead of an Arafat would change the hearts of hate-filled Palestinians.
Give a frog a dose of cold water in a pan on a stove and he'll be eternally grateful to you... even when you turn up a slow burning flame... he won't notice it until he's cooked.
Israel is happy for the scraps that fall off of the table, and that's what they're getting; scraps. But it is written, and must happen this way so that there will be a false Middle East peace covenant (Daniel 9:27), and then there will be 7 more years until Messiah Yeshua returns to rule as the Jewish King of Kings from Jerusalem! Good-bye, Dome of the Rock.
A Provisional Palestinian State?
A provisional Palestinian state on Jewish Lands? A great trade-off for Americans or Europeans who won't feel the least bit claustrophobic when the Jewish backyards in Israel are cut in half and given to angry Arab neighbors... who have bombs, Kalashnikovs and tanks, and are raging with anti-Jewish venom... raging like the fires in Colorado, Arizona and California.
Pulling wool over the eyes didn't end with Chamberlain in the Sudetenland. The only difference between Nazi Germany and now is that the State of Israel exists, and the Jewish people have a place of refuge and an army to defend them... and Bush is no friend to give their land away!!!
Bush's appeasement of the Arabs by telling Israel to withdraw its forces fully to positions they held prior to Sept. 28, 2000 is as much genocide as it is political correctness.... about the same as a United States good neighbor policy toward Osama Bin Laden would be. The last time Bush demanded Israel to withdraw from Jenin, it caused the subsequent spilling of rivers of Jewish blood.
Bush's insistence that "Israeli settlement activity in the occupied territories (an oxymoron for those of us who know that it's the Palestinians who are occupying Israeli territories) must stop," (New York Times, 6/24/02) is like saying that a caterpillar must be entombed in an iron cocoon because nature's metamorphosis of it into a butterfly is illegal.
And did I hear him correctly when he said that Israel must retreat to the pre-1967 lines?... like it was before when the Arab nations viciously attacked them on every side and almost succeeded in pushing them into the sea. Maybe this time Bush's plan will help the Arabs to succeed.
President Bush, I'd like to ask you a rhetorical question: Do you think that it is easier for a hate-filled Palestinian to change his ways than for a leopard to change its spots? You would have to be a fool to ask a leopard to do that.
And I remind you that in 1967, when Israel was so fiercely attacked by all those bloodthirsty Arabs, all she did was to win the war and retake her own lands including her eternal capital, Jerusalem, given to her by God and pursuant to a League of Nations mandate.
The Arabs had earlier stolen these lands from her during the 1948 war when seven of their brave nations attacked that little baby fledgling nation just after she was born and admitted into the United Nations; and no one stood up for her when her rights had been usurped.
And, sir, that doesn't constitute an illegal Israeli occupation of Arab lands in my book. Please, do get the record straight! In fact, dividing the Land of Israel to create a Palestinian state will only incur the wrath of God, and will certainly not bring peace, but rather His fury and judgment. In fact, it has already done so.
A Snake Is A Snake Is A Snake
Should Israel agree, as President Bush says, to "release frozen Palestinian funds" to the extended family of those who dive-bombed the World Trade Center or blew up the Park Hotel in Israel on the first night of Passover and killed so many Jews who were simply worshiping their God? It's absurd! Like giving machine guns to convicted killers if they will say they're sorry for what they did. A snake in a new suit is still a snake no matter how you slice it.
And he said, "I can understand the deep anger and despair of the Palestinian people." My Russian Jewish Grandparents were immigrants to America. Were they angry and despairing because they were poor? Did they hate America? Did they plant bombs? No, they toiled and worked to make their lives better.
History shows that Israel has blessed its Arab citizens more than any of their own Arab leaders. These wicked Muslims need to ask forgiveness from God for the lies they have been telling against the Jews ever since Jacob was given the blessing over Esau. They need to be born again and get new hearts; not Israel's Land. (Genesis 25:23)
They have been teaching their babies from birth to be Jew-haters and are only too happy to sacrifice them as suicide bombers in return for reward money from the Saudis. That's the mentality of a lying people who would make bombs and explode them in school buses and pizza parlors and shopping malls, whose parents would after the ill-fated events declare themselves proud that their kids were martyrs against the Jews.
And the naive Israelis are enthralled that Pollyanna-ish Bush is now calling for "new leaders, new institutions and new security arrangements with their neighbors" and then "the United States of America will support the creation of a Palestinian State." Putting a beautiful new harness on a killer stallion doesn't make it any safer to ride.
Another Weapon: Refugees
And the President's plan for Israel to "consider the plight and future of Palestinian refugees" when they already have 23 Arab states to go to, except for one thing; those states won't let them in. And they say that Israel is inhumane; that Israel needs to consider "the plight and future" of those who if allowed to come will overrun the only Jewish state in the world, making them the minority in their own Land, surrounded by thousands more of potential human bombs. It's a tragedy waiting to happen.
A snake is a snake and will not become a rose even if you call it a rose. And when these snakes have their own state and bigger armies and more and better weapons and even if their babies walk around with pacifiers instead of stones and their hooded men with rose petals instead of bullets and rifles, will that stop them from being Jew-haters and killers? Even if they have their own state?
First Trumpet Blown In America
Torrential downpours, floods, near record dust bowl conditions and crop failures in much of the country, relentless droughts and tinder box dry conditions, water shortages, almost daily renewed threats of terror, congressional hearings into an alleged failure of his Administration to thwart terrorist activities pre-9/11 despite advance warnings; and a failure to gain the coveted international alliance to attack and vindicate his father's soiled Gulf War record against Saddam Hussein speak for themselves.
Blazing infernos, a 50 mile long wall of raging fire goose-stepping its way across Arizona tells the story of a trumpet already blown. Millions of acres of forest land and hundreds of homes and buildings destroyed in Colorado, Arizona and California continue to confirm that fact; and it's not over yet; disasters will continue to blow across this land until our President gets the idea. But he won't! Clinton got the Lewinsky judgment. Bush, Sr. got a defeat for a second term as President. What will this Bush get?
Promoting Peace Termed "Anti-Israel"
An article in The Jerusalem Post on March 14, 2002 entitled "Security Council Endorses Palestinian State," reported, "The UN Security Council endorsed a vision of a Palestinian state for the first time Tuesday night, after a surprise resolution introduced by the United States passed with near-unanimous support... The resolution marks the first time the US has drafted a document for Security Council consideration on the situation in the Middle East since the current conflict erupted 18 months ago. Its passage marked a change in US policy on the council from one of blocking anti-Israel resolutions to that of leading the international community in promoting peace in the region... A similar vision was endorsed by President George W. Bush when he addressed the UN in November... The resolution was passed just hours after UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan called on Israel to 'end the illegal occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.'"
Mr. Bush was the first President in U.S. history to publically call for the establishment of a state of Palestine side by side with Israel, and that in the highest forum in the world; the United Nations.
Bush was agreeing with Kofi Annan that Israel is illegally occupying the Land which God had given to her as an everlasting inheritance.
Bush & Powell: Bullies
The April 8, 2002 New York Times in an article entitled, "Bush and Powell Repeat Demand for Israeli Withdrawal," quoted the words of the President, "I repeat: I meant what I said about withdrawal without delay."
You will recall that Israel had entered the West Bank to root out terrorist cells and destroy them eight days after a suicide bombing at the Park Hotel killed 26 people and wounded 100 in the city of Netanya as they were celebrating the first night of Passover. President Bush became an advocate for the Arab beasts who had cruelly murdered innocent Jews, while hypocritically declaring war against terror.
So Israel obeyed Bush's command and withdrew, and on Tuesday, May 7th another suicide bomber, the first since Israel's offensive in the West Bank in response to the Passover bombing, struck in Rishon le Zion, a suburb of Tel Aviv, killing 16 Jews. Obeying Bush's demands directly caused the death of 16 Jews, and who will God hold responsible? President Bush and the country he presides over? The raging infernos attest to that!
America Has Betrayed God!
On the last day of Ramadan this year, Bush invited 50 or so Muslim foreign dignitaries to the White House for a prayer meeting to Allah, a false god. Our "Christian" President thereby gave US-endorsed credibility to the pagan deity of Islam, thus making Satan as welcome in the White House as he is in his Middle Eastern havens of iniquity.
Bush, Powell and the State Department have continually sided with such as Crown Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, demanding that Israel submit to their terms of peace with her enemies and murderers. Such double standards are nauseating. Enough of this capitulation to Arab oil!
Perhaps Mr. Bush should be required to sit down at the same peace table with Osama Bin Laden that he has repeatedly demanded Israel to sit down at with Yasser Arafat.
Reward for Human Sacrifice
Recent substantiated evidence has shown that the Saudis and Iraqis have paid large sums of reward money to the families of dead Palestinian suicide bombers who have killed Jews. No wonder the parents of suicide bombers rejoice and say they have many more children to send to martyrdom. It pays! How pathetic to sacrifice one's children in the name of Allah for the reward of Mammon. Their reward is hell, as it should be.
Yet the Bush administration is still pressuring Israel to create a Palestinian State. The land of the free and home of the brave has played the Harlot.
The Church Age & The Wall
While I was in ministering in Grants Pass, Oregon recently, the Lord said that the wall of partition dividing the Jewish people from their Messiah was about to collapse and that it would be as fast as when the Berlin Wall fell.
What is remarkable is the fact that for 2,000 years we have been in the Church Age, but now we have entered into The Davidic Age. The Church Age is coming to an end, and your Jewish roots have been placed on the front burner.
This mystery is being revealed by God simultaneously with the greatest outpouring of His Holy Spirit on the Jewish nation and people since the first coming of Messiah Yeshua, "for the set time to favor Zion has come." (Psalm 102:13)
Do you want to learn more about this and about what God desires for you? We are making a video series on the re-establishment of the Throne of David for the Son of David to rule and reign on it. The videos and accompanying study guides will soon be available for your Bible study groups.
Until then, may the Lord Yeshua bless you, may He make His face shine upon you and give you peace. Thank you, and God bless you all.

Kess Malkhoot Dahveed: The Throne of David
"King David, leaping and dancing before the Lord..." (2 Samuel 6:16)
"Jewish misgivings about the Gospel... While there are between 100,000 and 500,000 Messianic Jews in the English speaking countries, most of the world's 13-to-17 million Jewish people do not accept Yeshua as the Messiah. While the reasons include Christian persecution of Jews, secular worldviews that allow little place for either God or a Messiah, refusal to turn from sin... a major cause is the perception by Jews that the Gospel is irrelevant. The Jesus portrayed seems to bear little relationship to Jewish life. It becomes hard for a Jew to experience Yeshua the Messiah as he really is, namely, a friend to every Jewish heart..." (Page xxxvii, Complete Jewish Bible, Translation by David H. Stern, Jewish New Testament Publications, Inc.)
Only about .03 percent of the worldwide Jewish population has accepted Yeshua as their Messiah. This must change. God intends to do it. He has a plan. This prophecy will excite you! See what the Scriptures say about God's Jewish End-Time plan.
And the one to whom the Son willed to reveal Him that day in 1972, was me. The reason? Maybe the difficulty inherent in the task I was being called to perform? Perhaps the need for a powerful revelation that I would never forget? Whatever the reason, He gave a revelation to me which carried me through many tough places, including the loss of my family.
66 years ago, my Mother and Father had no intention of bringing another baby into the world. My sister had just been born. They took all necessary precaution to prevent another pregnancy, nevertheless, God had other plans. And I was born in the middle of Sukkot in New Haven, CT, into the most wonderful family of God-loving Russian immigrant Jews. My maternal Grandfather, Yaakov Lev (Jacob Leo) Mamorsky, a wholesale fruit and vegetable dealer, with whom we lived much of the time during my early years, remained a profound influence on my life as I was growing up.
To the conservative synagogue, B'nai Jacob, (where I, at the age of thirteen, became a Bar Mitzvah) we would go, my Grandfather and I, on Sabbath mornings. I would watch the old men dahvening (weaving back and forth while praying) with great interest. My young boy's heart was always busy finding fault with these men, counting them to be unworthy of my God because I imagined that following their Sabbath worship they would return to their various worldly occupations with little regard for my God or their fellow men, in their unfettered zeal for profit making. I guess this was the first trace of the prophetic mantle which would one day descend upon me, causing me to defend the God who I would one day serve from these imagined enemies.
Advance thirty years or so to the period when I became an attorney with a prominent New York City law firm, representing Broadway theatrical productions. That's when I first realized the absence in my life of the reason-for-being which had so riveted me as a young boy.
And from there, I moved over to the practice of music business law for a major performing rights organization; still there remained the agony in my tattered soul for something that I could not put my finger on. My songs were being recorded by such major artists as Kaye Starr, Lana Cantrell, Gloria Lynne and Helen Merrill. I had taken a giant step in the world's scheme of things, but even my song-writing successes were not a remedy for that internal aching in my heart. Troubled by the inconsequentiality of my middle-aged lifestyle, more and more beset by mid-life crisis, I yearned to return to the sweet God of my youth.
And it was under these circumstances that I wrote a song. The words went like this: If you'll show me the road to follow, I will shoulder the load for you, I will shoulder the load when I'm weary, it will cheer me to follow you. If the road is too dark and narrow for the sparrow to fly by day, I will call on the love all around me to surround me and light my way. Let me see it. let me see it. Let me see your love come down and light my way, Lord. Let me see it. Let me see it. Let me see the world go 'round the other way, Lord. I have known all the clouds and raindrops and I never have known much more. There was penance to do, now I've done mine for the sunshine at your door. Let me feel it. Let me feel it. Let me feel it shine upon my weary soul, Lord. Let me feel it. Let me feel it. Let me feel it warm my bones 'cause they are cold, Lord...
"You Will Build For Me A New House of Worship"
The Spirit of the personal God whom I hadn't yet met was about to move me to New Canaan, CT, and ultimately perchance to a home on Salem Road (short for Jeru-salem). I established my own law practice in the center of that town, and it was there, in that town with a name as uniquely Biblical as New Canaan, that I would receive my call from God.
Apparently the song had worked. God heard my prayer. And it was there that He had mercy on me; His beautiful "punim" (face) appeared to me in vision for six days, and on the seventh day He lifted me into heaven onto His lap. He appeared to me as a loving Father with a great white beard. I buried my head in His shoulder and felt loved beyond all love.
I heard Him say to me, "You will build for Me a new house of worship!" I could hardly breathe from excitement. It was the first time I felt a real Father's love; indeed, intense agape love; and I was for the first time in my entire life totally non-threatened! There it is! Intensely loved without a care or a hurt or a guilt or a burden. He was My Beloved and I was His. "Ani l'dodi v'dodi li" ("I am My beloved's and My beloved is mine"). Music to my tormented soul!
It was then that He showed me Yeshua; and I discovered that the One whom the Jewish people rejected was My own Jewish Messiah. He had the express "punim" of His Father, but instead of the great white beard, His was red-brown. It was love at first sight and I was born anew that day.
A Triggering Device To The New House of Worship
When the World Trade Center Towers fell, it triggered a domino-type chain reaction. Let me show you from the above Scripture. Did not Jeremiah refer to Babylon as a "destroying mountain" that God would transform into a "burnt mountain?" (Jeremiah 51:24-25) Can we not therefore assume that "every high mountain" in the above cited Isaiah Scripture likewise refers to a heathen kingdom or nation that, like the ancient Babylon, stands in opposition to God, His Land and His chosen people, Israel? And did not Zechariah confirm this reasoning when he prophesied, "Who are you, O great mountain? (referring to Persia which had already captured Babylon) Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain!?" (Zech. 4:7-8)
So with this equation at our disposal, we can make the assumption, that Isaiah's mountain is referring to a high, proud, arrogant nation: none other than America!
America: Slapping God Across the Face!
An article in The New York Times on Sunday, November 11, 2001, entitled, "All Must Fight Against Terror, Bush Tells U.N." reports, "In a blunt, direct speech that was his first to the General Assembly, Mr. Bush said... more emphatically than he ever has before that there should be a Palestinian state, and for the first time referred to that state with the name the Arabs use themselves. 'We are working toward the day when two states - Israel and Palestine - live peacefully together within secure and recognized borders...' The use of 'Palestine' seemed intended to appeal to an Islamic public that has grown uneasy and impatient with the war in Afghanistan... The address was a dramatic change from the kind that Mr. Bush had been expected to give had the United Nations not postponed it's General Assembly meeting in late September because of the terrorist attacks..." (One disaster prevented another!)
Whether Mr. Bush was conscripted into this cause by an over-zealous State Department or not, he was, as far as God was concerned, responsible for his actions as was the nation over which he presided. He was, in fact, the first American President to use this "no-no" word - "Palestine." Not even Mr. Clinton had done this. It was like "slapping God across the face!"
And never before were prayers to a counterfeit, foreign god rendered in the White House as they were to the non-god, Allah.
"Courting Muslims, Bush Hosts Ramadan Dinner" read the headline of the November 19, 2001 article in The New York Times. It read, "Hoping to give America's wartime image a boost in the Islamic world, President Bush brought ambassadors from Muslim countries to the White House on Monday for prayers and a traditional Ramadan dinner... In what officials called an unprecedented gesture by a U.S. president, Bush used the White House dinner marking the Muslim holy month to make the point that the war in Afghanistan is not a war against Muslims... It was the first Iftar held at the White House and attended by a U.S. president... Before the meal, the ambassadors, representing more than 50 nations including Indonesia, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Yemen, gathered in the East Room of the White House for prayers." (To a false god!)
This second slap across the face of God was spiritual harlotry and a gesture of appeasement toward His great enemy, Lucifer, the non-god of the Muslims. Allah, who is vying for God's throne in Jerusalem (Isaiah 14:12-14), finally got the endorsement from the free world (which will not be free for very long).
This action of an American president was an anti-God compromise of the worst kind, which America had never before experienced since it's birth. God heard our President tell America and all the world on prime time television that He and "Allah" were the same, in effect lending credibility to Satan's counterfeit and his Muslim Jew-hating terrorist hordes. Israel's Hope was blemished that sad day and a lie out of darkness was trumpeted across the face of the earth enabling a Luciferian plan to destroy God's Jewish children.
This blurring of Scriptural truth which came with such power and unique distinction from a beloved "Christian" President sitting at the helm of the greatest nation in the world, will also help to push into place the great Christian "falling away." (2 Thess. 2:3)
His words would catch the masses of Christians off-guard and even encourage them, by his unwise pro-Islamic propaganda campaign, to love, support and honor Islam. Does not the Scripture specifically say that light and darkness have no fellowship?
Scripture talks about "false prophets" deceiving many. (Matt. 24:11) This is a big end-time deception; and by an American President who also thereby set the stage for unparalleled persecution of the Jewish people. By his actions they have lost, for appearance sake only, the distinction of being the chosen of God because the false Islamic god, of whom the Muslims are the elect, got equal billing at the hand of President Bush.
Was the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob offended? Undoubtedly! But did He foreknow that this kind of harlotry, an extension, in loco parentis, of what George, Sr. had initiated earlier (for which he had lost his bid for reelection), would happen? Of course! First the trigger; now the hammer blows that would drive Israel to the peace table and into "the wilderness of the peoples;" (Ezekiel 20:35) where God would save her; but the betraying culprit (America, a Judas) would pay the price.
A Rosh Hashanah Vision
I reported in our SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER 2001 Gazette that while worshiping on Rosh Hashanah eve, Monday September 17, 2001, the Lord gave me a vision of "Yitzhak Rabin, the slain Israeli Prime Minister, with a fishing pole in his hands, fishing in a river." I interpreted it to mean that when President Bush had finished fishing for and catching the broadest-based coalition of Western and Muslim nations to fight terrorism, he would make a concerted effort to pressure Israel to giveaway her God-given Land as Yitzhak Rabin had done. Well, history will show that this is exactly what happened. Now that we've seen the triggering mechanism, let's investigate exactly what it was that had to be triggered.
This "covenant" of peace must be triggered into existence and finalized between Israel and the Arabs; and thereafter must be confirmed by the False Prophet, this Pope or the next. Then, the 70th week of Daniel ("the Davidic Age") will begin. Thus, when you see the Middle East Peace Agreement finalized and confirmed by the False Prophet from Rome, there will be 7 more years until the return of the Lord Yeshua to assume His Throne of David in Jerusalem (Kess Malkhoot Dahveed in Hebrew).
Thus, the WTC catastrophe and the resultant chain-reaction will propel us forward into the end of the age, and the ushering in of the Kingdom of God.
Enter the False Prophet!
"How we would have liked to see our Jewish and Muslim brothers walk side by side with us (Catholics) in a united pact of love that would give back to the Holy Land its true face of being a crossroads of peace and a land of peace," said the Pope, as reported by a 12/13/01 New York Times article entitled, "Pope Accuses Israelis, Palestinians of Extremism."
The statement was made at a meeting called by the Pope "because he was worried that the life of Christians in the Holy Land had become insufferable since the start of the Palestinian uprising some 15 months ago." His purpose was also to discuss "ways to encourage reconciliation among other groups in the region," the Vatican reported.
The Pope has also called for a meeting in Assisi, Italy on January 24, 2002 to pray for peace. Food for thought, huh? God is very clear about His foreign policy toward Israel, the Apple of His eye: "I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curses thee." (Genesis 12:3) Is the Pope reading the same Bible? "For when they say, 'Peace and safety!' then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape." (1 Thessalonians 5:3)
The stage is being set for the Pope to actively engage in the Peace process with the goal of confirming the covenant.
My Second Rosh Hashanah Vision
In my last Gazette (see below), I reported how the Lord used the words "Big Bang" to describe the carnage that happened in New York City on that blackest of Tuesdays, September 11, 2001. In fact, it triggered the genesis of a new movement that I am endeavoring to describe.
The blast, a triggering device, set into motion a series of events which would lead to the destruction of the Gentile kingdoms and the restoration of the Throne of David on this earth; a prelude to the time when we will see Him "coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory" to rule from His throne in Jerusalem.
In the second vision that I received on that Rosh Hashanah eve, I saw the hands of God holding up a tallit (a Biblical Hebrew prayer shawl) like a chupah (a canopy at a Jewish wedding), and it was full of beautiful, bubbly water. It was so full of the pure and bubbly water that it was spilling over and pouring out an abundance of refreshing upon the children of Israel, marking the birth of the Davidic Age and the falling away and the end of the Church Age!
Mr. Bush and the Pope spearheaded and helped encourage that result by violating the distinction between light and darkness, by blurring the distinction between Christianity and Islam. True Believers must come out of that deception, that blind and lame Christianity, and come into the new house that God is raising up, the Kess Malkhoot Dahveed!
A Time for Bridge Building
Now that the fullness of the Gentiles has come in, it is time for building the Throne of the One for whom the Jewish people wait. Ezekiel described it this way:
It is time also to build a bridge for the Church to cross over in order to escape the impending train wreck of a defiled Christianity and to enter into the narrow way and the Divine doorway to the future.
It is time to prepare the way for His return, to institute exciting Davidic fellowship with Him, to keep the Biblical Sabbaths, the Feast days, the music, the worship, the Davidic dance, the knowledge; all Jewish. There is also the matter of Divine protection; the anointing of the Holy Spirit to shield His people from the wiles of the enemy.
There will be a time of grievous persecution of the Jewish people and of all of His people who will vigorously uphold His truth and live according to His dictates of righteousness.
The Lord spoke to me yesterday morning with the word, "breadlines." It is coming closer with every passing day. Who will be blamed for this time of suffering? Who always gets blamed? The Jews! and their defenders, those of you who love them and worship the God of Israel! Now is the time for action.
Kess Malkhoot Dahveed, A Doorway to the Future
Kess Malkhoot Dahveed, the Throne of David, is the Jewish-centered new house of worship that the Lord called me to build. It is a "doorway to the future," (the Lord's words), through which the Son of David, Messiah Yeshua, will enter to establish His Throne in the Temple in Jerusalem.
Kess Malkhoot Dahveed is a prophetic Jewish work over which the Mogen Dahveed, the star of David, the Israeli flag, will fly, but Jews and Gentiles will have an equal place in it. "For My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations. (Isaiah 56:7)
And indeed it is a house in the vernacular; the restored House of David, the restored Davidic dynasty which was cut off by Nebuchadnezzar in 586 BC, and will not be filled again until Messiah Yeshua, the King of the Jews, returns at the end of the seventieth week of Daniel (Daniel 9:27) to sit on His throne.
It is also what Amos the Hebrew prophet identifies as the Tabernacle of David. (Amos 9:11)
Kess Malkhoot Dahveed will be filled with Hebraic-style worship, the beautiful music that God has given me, as well as that of others, which I have placed to the Scriptures over the thirty years that I have been a Believer. Most of my songs have never even been heard because they were written for such a time as this to "prepare the way of the Lord," (Isa. 40:3) a time when the veil is lifted off the eyes of the Jewish people that they may see their Messiah. It will feature performances of our three musicals, two of which have already thrilled theatre-goers from New York City, to Los Angeles to Miami.
One of the first praise songs I ever wrote was based on those verses word for word. We have a new CD called "I Will Set My Sanctuary In The Midst of Them." With 12 of my songs, it's anointed! Only $15!
Videotape Teaching Ministry
The Lord has put it on my heart to begin videotaping a teaching series about the building of His new house of worship, Kess Malkhoot Dahveed, the Throne of David.
For this purpose, we need to buy a digital video camera and accessories to set up a studio in our home.
The times we live in are indeed a critical turning point in the history of the world when the Gentile kingdoms are being torn down and His Kingdom is being built up. The video teachings are designed to bring Jewish people to their Messiah through this new and bold Jewish work, and to encourage Messianic Gentile Believers to cross over into the Davidic Kingdom of the Lord, the Kess Malkhoot Dahveed.
Your contributions to Jeremiah Ministries in any amount will help make this dream and mandate from God a living reality. Together, let us build this significant end-time work to establish the Throne of David, Kess Malkhoot Dahveed, as a vessel of light to the Jewish people throughout the world.
With best wishes for a blessed New Year!
Love in Messiah, Yeshua Ben-Dahveed,

"The Great Slaughter When The Towers Fall:" An Analysis
"The Big Bang?"
The Big Bang: the Lord used these words on September 21st to describe to me what had happened in New York City and Washington, DC, on that blackest of Tuesdays 10 days earlier.
On that day, terrorist "beasts of the earth" hijacked commercial airliners and exploded them into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York, demolishing them and killing more than 6,000 innocent people. Another hijacked airliner was crashed into the Pentagon killing 189, including those on the aircraft.
According to Scripture, these wicked "beasts of the earth" are loosed by the Lamb of God when He opens the fourth seal to implement His end-time plan of salvation throughout the earth.
The words "Big Bang" describe a cause, a blast, a triggering device, which will set into motion a series of events leading to the destruction of the Gentile kingdoms and the restoration of the Throne of David on the earth. It is a preamble to the time when we will see Him "coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory" to rule from His throne in His Temple in Jerusalem.
"The Towers Fall"
Thus, when "the towers fall" prophetically (so tragically!), the Lord is thereby binding up the bruise of His people, Israel. My new 10-tape series, "Esau's Last Stand," sheds great light on the subject, as does my book. (See order form).
"As Babylon Has Caused The Slain of Israel to Fall"
The tragic events of September 11th have broken our hearts, but the story doesn't end here for those who are His people. Hopefully it will bring about a hunger and thirst for the Lord, a repentance from sin (and not phoney new age brotherhood of all men), and a real born again experience for many.
A Coalition Against Terrorism
At this time, the Bush Administration is fishing for and catching members of the broadest-based coalition possible of Western and Muslim nations, purposely excluding Israel. Their goal will be to eradicate Islamic terrorism. Thank God for that.
But why is the U.S. Administration excluding Israel, the only nation who is a true ally in the fight against terror? Because the Arab nations will not join a coalition if Israel is one of its members.
Therefore, the United States chooses to appease the Arab and Muslim states and exclude their friend and companion, Israel.
History Repeats Itself
President Bush's father did the same thing to Israel in 1991 when he formed a coalition against Iraq. He purposely excluded Israel and would not even allow her to defend herself when Iraq showered her with 39 SCUD missiles. As a result, the former President inherited Hurricane Andrew, and loss of a second term in office. Now his son's administration is making the same mistake.
When Israel was brutally attacked by Palestinian and Muslim terrorists during the past 11 months (actually for the last 53 years), the State Department under Colin Powell insisted that Israel show "maximum restraint," and not hinder the peace process by going after the terrorists.
Did any nation lift a finger to fight against the cruel terrorists who murdered Israelis? No. Apparently, nobody cared if Jewish blood was spilled.
But now that America has tasted the wrath of the Muslim terrorists, the response has been all-out war on terrorism. And Colin Powell is still telling Israel to show restraint and not go after Palestinian terrorists, but rather to make peace with them. This is a terrible double standard.
How can the U.S. Administration, even after the terrorist explosions in New York City and Washington, DC, continue to push the Israeli government to enter into a "peace" agreement with terrorists (actually, Arafat is the father of modern terrorism - he formed the PLO in 1964), who are no less lethal than Osama bin Laden, whom Bush has just labeled, "wanted dead or alive?"
I believe the Lord is saying that the U.S. Administration will, after forming their coalition, continue to pressure Israel to give away her God-given Land, including Jerusalem, and to finalize the Middle East Peace Agreement.
The terrorist attacks have become the catalyst that is driving Yasir Arafat, full of fear that America will put him on the "wanted dead or alive" list, back to the peace table. He has even been photographed giving blood. Arafat has also ordered a cessation of Palestinian terror against the Israelis so that he can deceive the nations into thinking that he is a peacemaker again.
The "covenant" of peace (Daniel 9:27) must be completed between Israel and the Arabs before the 70th week of Daniel (what I call "the Zion Age"), the 7-year Tribulation Period, can commence. When you see the Middle East Peace Agreement finalized and then confirmed by the man from Rome, know that there will be only 7 more years until the return of the Lord Yeshua to establish His throne in Jerusalem.
Thus, the catastrophe in the U.S. is causing a chain-reaction that will usher in the end of the age.
Sadly but truly, Israel's terrorist Muslim enemies have been hand-picked to be America's dance partner in Israel's waltz of death. Even nearly blind eyes should be able to see that America has made Israel it's sacrificial lamb for the sake of a coalition seeking to include Muslim states, even terrorist states like Syria.
Some in the media are even saying that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is what caused the terrorist attacks upon the U.S.
Beware of making Israel the scapegoat. God, and there is only one true God (and His name is not now and never was Allah - a false god), is very clear about His foreign policy toward Israel, the Apple of His eye: "I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curses thee." (Genesis 12:3)
Is America Israel's friend? How can a friend drive it's faithful ally into a marriage with those Palestinians who danced in the streets, passing out cake and making the "V" for victory signs to celebrate the World Trade Center carnage?
Horror in the Torah Portion
The Torah and Haftorah portions read in synagogues around the world on Saturday, September 15, 2001 may give us some further strong clues about these events.
What do the first and second Commandments say?
America was born, brought up, and blessed as a Judeo-Christian nation. She, her citizens, and her President must therefore be held to most of the same high standards by God as were the children of Israel.
Accordingly, I watched in amazement as President Bush's special memorial service at the National Cathedral in the nation's capitol in honor of the victims of this devastation unfolded. With a terrible wrenching in my soul, I saw a Muslim cleric praying before the entire nation in the name of Allah, a foreign god.
Darkness stood side-by-side with light that day... every day... in America, a Judeo-Christian nation! America has consistently broken the highest commandments of God, thus inheriting the curse of which Moses had spoken: a "burning." Not even one of those distinguished Christian clergy who prayed or spoke that day delivered a message of repentance and salvation!
Racial tolerance and political correctness do not justify the breaking of God's commandments by allowing the worship of a foreign god in the midst of our nation's highest prayer service. The words in that Torah portion, planted there thousands of years ago, no doubt shed light upon the catastrophe. He knew that it would be read during the week of the tragedy.
A Haftorah portion; the Prophets, read by Jesus two thousand years ago, was similarly fulfilled at the particular day He read it; and He said so: "This day is this Scripture fulfilled." (Luke 4:16-21)
The Haftorah portion for that week, in the book of Isaiah, read world-wide on Saturday morning, September 15, 2001, contained the following prophecy:
It also contained another prophecy:
Israel had been forsaken, and God wanted to help her. So desperate was she, all alone among the nations, surrounded on every side by vultures, who with blood in their eyes were circling around Jerusalem, preparing to take her for their foreign god, Allah; the same false pagan god who was worshiped in the National Cathedral in Washington, DC, during the memorial prayer service for those people who were massacred by his fundamentalist disciples. A paradox of compromise that I venture to say didn't phase mostly anyone present or those watching on TV! What in the world has happened to America? But God sees. You might say that the Torah and Haftorah message bore witness to that.
We can also conclude that the Lord was using this event to take up arms against Edom, not for democracy's sake, but "for Zion's sake," through the American and allied instrumentalities that would do the destroying for Him. He would bloody His garments on the Edomites, the Islamic terrorists, which were tormenting His chosen people, hell-bent on stealing their land and the place of His throne in Jerusalem.
I heard the Lord say on Tuesday, September 1, 2001:
"There is a River..."
And He did help her by reaching out His powerful arm from New York City and Washington, DC, to Jerusalem. He turned the tables on the "beasts" who were fighting to secure Satan's throne in the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. (Isaiah 14:13) The wicked Palestinian Authority propaganda campaign had convinced the nations that the Arabs were victims of Israel's aggression and not the opposite.
But now, America and her international allies are ready to turn their weapons against the terrorists rather then defend them as they did in the Balkans not so long before; of the same ilk as the ones who killed countless of Israel's citizens, blowing their bodies to bits with nails, bolts and shrapnel. Witness the recent unspeakable act (one of many) of killing 15 men, women and children as they sat innocently eating pizza at Sbarro's Restaurant in Jerusalem. Then, when Israel bloodlessly retaliated by capturing the Orient House, a haven for terrorists in Jerusalem, "The United States sharply criticized the takeover." (New York Times, 8/11/2001).
Israel "has come under international criticism for pursuing a policy it calls targeted killings aimed at stopping attacks on its citizens," (New York Times 8/30/2001) and America has repeatedly cautioned Israel to exercise "restraint" when responding to these terrorist attacks, demanding that she not thereby hinder the phony and fatuous "peace" that she is being driven to make with none other than the same "beasts" who killed thousands of innocent Americans on this blackest of Tuesdays that this country has ever known.
America is singling out Osama bin Laden while Israel has been facing killers from a plethora of organizations with different names, including Hamas and Arafat's PLO, but all with the same dead consciences, immoral mentalities and murderous hearts.
And all at once, America has felt the horrible force of what Israel has been experiencing right along; the blatant hatred and wickedness of demonic enemies, and now America will have no choice but to help eradicate it! And God has accomplished His purposes.
I was greatly pleased when President Bush showed firm courage and resolve in standing with Israel recently in Durban, South Africa, and now in standing against the Islamic terrorist "beasts of the earth." But there is more.
A Look into the Near Future
How eerie to watch the televison broadcasts showing the seemingly unending clouds of smoke rising from the tip of Manhattan ( Mystery Babylon; Rev.17:18). The words of Revelation that appertain to a future time come to mind:
But will the nations continue to persist in their anti-Israel rhetoric? Of course! It is written. That is why the black horse of poverty, stock market and economic decline, shall gallop around the world. Within the last month, in vision I saw the black horseman of poverty hauntingly released.
"A Fountain Shall Be Opened"
In a vision that I received on Rosh Hashanah, I saw the hands of God holding up a tallit (A Biblical Hebrew prayer shawl) like a chupah (a canopy at a wedding) and it was full of beautiful, bubbly water. It was so full of the pure and bubbly water that it was spilling over and pouring out an abundance of refreshing.
I interpret that as meaning that at the same time as God is punishing the terrorist Muslim evildoers, He will pour out His Spirit upon the children of Israel, and that starting now, there shall be a dramatic new move of God's Spirit to His Jewish people causing an abundant harvest of Jewish souls into the kingdom of Yeshua the Messiah.
Let us get busy and follow Yeshua's admonition: "I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work." (John 9:4)
Pray for this ministry and your part in it. We pray for you, that the Lord God of Israel will keep you from the evil, in the name of Jesus the Jewish Messiah.
With warmest love in Him,

"Daughters of Jerusalem... Weep For Yourselves"
On July 16, 2000, while the Camp David peace talks were underway in Maryland under the auspices of Bill Clinton, I asked the Lord what would be the outcome. I heard the same words He said to His beloved people and city about 2,000 years ago just before His execution.
The talks ended in seeming failure. But you've heard the expression, "It's not over until the fat lady sings," and since she didn't sing yet, we can surmise that the Lord's Word will not return unto Him void. (Isa. 55:11) The false peace which the ancient prophets spoke of will take place.
I believe the peace covenant will be finalized in the year 2000. It will mark 21 years, 3 full "weeks," the measure of time used by the Angel Gabriel (Dan. 9:24) since the inception of the "covenant" between Egypt and Israel at Camp David in 1979. Once this "covenant" is completed and confirmed (Dan. 9:27), we will enter into the 4th cycle of sevens, the 4th "week" since it began in 1979, which will start the 70th week of Daniel, the Zion Age, the final 7 years before the Throne of David is established, with the Lord physically returning and ruling from His Temple in Jerusalem. Goodbye, Dome of the Rock, heathen shrine of the devil! (Isaiah 14:13)
Perhaps the majority of Jewish people do not believe in Yeshua, their Messiah and Firstborn from the dead; perhaps they do not believe in His soon return to establish His Throne as their King; but they sure enough believe in their present Harlot-Savior: Bill Clinton, and his president- aspiring spouse, Hillary. Bill's time is running out. But hers is seemingly about to begin.
Isn't Israel just as foolish today as they were when they argued with Samuel and demanded a king to "go out before us and fight our battles?" (1 Kings 8:20) Then they got Saul. Now who will they get? Maybe Queen Hillary, a modern-day Jezebellian type. Seems like Israel is always searching out saviors no matter who they are - as long as it's not their true King, the one sent by God: Yeshua.
How ironic that they would despise their Savior, the One who will rescue them from the despicable covenant some call "peace," and yet would believe in the ones leading them into destruction. Hating the truth and believing the lie. Yes, they will surely weep for themselves and for their children. And He will weep for them, too, from heaven. But then He will take action and come back to annul (Isaiah 28:18) Barak's "covenant with death and hell" (Isaiah 28:14-15; Daniel 9:27) with the Riders on the Gray Horse of Islam: Arafat and company. (Rev. 6:7-8)

"Do Not Harm the Oil and the Wine"
Live it up, America, with "the oil and the wine!" (Rev. 6:5-6) As many of you know from my teachings, I have identified the principal rider on the Black Horse as America, a/k/a "Mystery Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and of the Abominations of the Earth." (Rev. 17:5)
America is teaching her citizens and the world at large to worship her gods of Democracy (now that they've made it a godless system without the foundation of God's word) and Mammon, and has committed it's greatest act of harlotry by inducing Israel to give up her inheritance, "a land for which the Lord your God cares." (Deut. 11:12)
And although America has suffered God's repeated resultant spankings in various forms such as ravaging fires, hurricanes, tornados, floods and droughts, she still continues to "eat, drink and be merry," because as the Scriptures say, her oil and wine has not been harmed.
The economy is booming, the stocks, bonds, technology, and commodities markets on Wall Street and in Silicon Valley are blazing hot, the cost of gasoline and oil is skyrocketing, thanks to a White House that cowtows to and won't harm Arab oil interests; and the wine is flowing abundantly in her entertainment sectors. In short, America is wallowing in prosperity although her crops are withering and her natural resources are rapidly being depleted.
A Proof of America's Black Horseman Identity
The Scriptures show unequivocally that America is the Black Horseman. Let's start our proof with Zech. 1:8 & 11.
The thing to observe here is that the black horse is missing. The prophecy is given by Zechariah in 520 B.C., a time when Israel and Judah (the myrtle trees - Zech. 1:19) are in captivity in Babylon (in a depressed state, "in the hollow"), and yet the angel reports to the prophet that "all the earth is resting quietly." Odd, that Israel is in a miserable time of captivity and yet the angel describes the conditions on earth as being in a restful state. But observe that Zechariah sees the black horses at a later time.
As we read on, the Scripture reports that God allowed these horsemen to go forth and attack, and furthermore, that it gave His Spirit rest as they did so. What I want you to see is that at this time, the time of God's judgment, the black horses were present. (By the way, these are the same horsemen as Revelation 6.) Why? Because the black horsemen are late arrivals on the world scene. They come when it is time for God's judgment.
To continue our proof, we examine another Scripture which discusses that same late arrival on the world scene, at the time of God's judgment, in a slightly different way - but it is the same black horseman... America.
Thus, America is that Johnny-come-lately black horsemen, the worshipper of Mammon and Democracy who arrives on the world scene just in time to sully it up and put the final touches on the apostasy against God and His chosen people Israel, to set the stage for God's final judgment; His end-time buzz saw that is about to begin. America is also the one who raises up Russia (the red horseman), and is also that baaaaad woman known as MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.. Thus, you can see that even though many didn't understand the scenario, the Scriptures did.
Now, A More Educated Look At This Peace
The Peace Covenant will, when concluded, be confirmed by the Rider on the White Horse (Rev. 6: 1-2) from the Vatican. Bill Clinton and America, the Rider on the Black Horse (Rev. 6:5-6), will absolutely drive the hard bargain to conclusion, and resultant poverty and myriad judgments will befall America - which is immersed in noxious harlotry against the God of the Hebrews - and it is the American "eagle" (Rev. 12:14) which will drive Israel into the beckoning enticements, the open arms, the Biblical wilderness of the nations.
And then finally shall come the climax, the big finale where the Rider on the Red Horse, none other than the revived Communistic Russia (Rev. 6:3-4) under the Antichrist leader, will bring to a conclusion the whole misery of the Daughter of Zion and the entire world, with the final war of the age, Armageddon/Gog. (Rev. 16:16; Ezek. 38, 39)
And that's what's happening with the peace process. Surprised? And that's why I felt particularly led at this time to "blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in His Holy Mountain." (Joel 2:1) Clinton, Barak and Arafat, do your dirty work, because I really am impatient for the King of the Jews to come back and bring His justice and His Kingdom with Him.
The Plumb Line
On August 16, 2000, I heard the Lord say, "plumb line." It reminds me of Amos 7:7-9.
There it is in a nutshell. The Temple Mount, "the high places of Isaac" shall be desolated and conceded by Barak to Esau's descendant, Arafat, the adversary of Israel, to do with as he pleases, which is to keep his father, Lucifer/Allah, seated there in the Dome of the Rock. (Isa. 14:13) This travesty will be finally over when the Lord returns to do justice and returns it to the sons of Isaac, the rightful heirs of that most famous piece of real estate in the whole world. This eventuates at the end of the nuclear war, Armageddon/Gog, that explodes onto the earth at the blowing of the 6th trumpet (Rev. 9:13-21), and the simultaneous outpouring of the 6th bowl (Rev. 16:12-16).
The whole 7 year false peace process, Israel's "covenant with death," is likely to begin in the year 2000, and be annulled by God in 2007.
And thus it will have been forty years that Israel has been in the wilderness from the time that Moshe Dayan brought them there when he foolishly gave the Temple Mount back to the Muslim Waqf after victoriously capturing it from Jordanian control in 1967.
As for the safety of God's people, "You shall hide them in the secret place of your presence from the plots of man." (Psalm 31:20)
America, A Modern Day Egypt
I quote from "The Word of the Lord," a message we posted on our website on April 20, 2000:
"Let My People Go!" (Exodus 10:3) "And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee," (Genesis 12:3) pertains to God's promise to Abraham, and thereafter to his sons of the chosen line, Isaac and Jacob. Esau was never the intended recipient of that blessing from God. (Genesis 25:23) But Bill Clinton is trying to take the promise away from Jacob and give it to Esau's descendants. By so doing, Clinton is activating the Biblical consequence of Genesis 12:3. Every nation that ever cursed God's chosen children, from Babylon to Persia, Greece, Rome, the British Empire, and Germany to name a few, were prior recipients of God's stated foreign policy: "If you curse My chosen people, you will be cursed."
And Clinton continues to pressure Israel to give away her inheritance from God, and God's hand is being forced once again to levy the curse in return against Clinton and the country over which he presides, America. 3,500 years earlier, another Pharaoh also had to learn the hard way. The sea opened and swallowed him and his people up. But Jacob's children escaped.
On the first day of Passover, Thursday, April 20, 2000, Yasser Arafat sat down with President Clinton in Washington, DC, the actual day when the Lord delivered the Jews from slavery in Egypt thousands of years ago. They are plotting how to steal God's blessing away from the Jews and give it to the Arabs, Esau's descendants.
The bottom line: I heard the Lord say, "Polly put the kettle on," because He's steaming over the skullduggery of Clinton and Arafat. When will America learn to stop cursing the chosen of God? According to God's word, never! And if Clinton is a type of Pharaoh, watch out for the plagues!
"Let My People Go!"
The "Polly" prophecy is presently being fulfilled, the plagues are coming, and like Rome before her, America is burning! The online ABC News reported on August 25, 2000, "Currently there are 84 major wildfires, including 14 new blazes reported this morning, burning in 11 states. Nearly 1.5 million acres are currently burning, bringing the year-to-date total to 5.7 million acres - more than twice what a normal fire season would burn. Fire officials say it's the worst fire season in at least a half-century."
And on August 28th, in an article entitled, "Dryer Than the Dust Bowl," they report that "a North Texas drought surpasses the record set in 1934," during the infamous dust bowl; and no rain is anticipated.
If we listen carefully, we can hear Moses shouting in the wings to America's Pharaoh, "Let my people go!" The solution to the Middle East isn't in false promises from lying lips, it's God.
Ancient Egyptian Obelisk in New York City
I recently discovered that at the highest point in Central Park on a grassy knoll behind the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Fifth Avenue and 81st Street, there stands an ancient obelisk built in Egypt circa 1500 B.C., with hieroglyphics on each of its four sides. This obelisk was transported at considerable cost and difficulty from Egypt by a retired American naval officer, Lieut. Henry H. Gorringe, a member of the Anglo-Saxon Lodge of the Freemason's. The city received funding for the project from William H. Vanderbilt. The Obelisk was set on its base when the museum was being built around 1921. (The photo at left shows the giant Obelisk with a tiny Jeremiah standing in the lower right hand corner. See him?)
Wendy and I visited the site on July 30th, and took many pictures of the ancient obelisk. Here is a partial translation of the Hieroglyphics on the Obelisk in Central Park, New York City: (Ra was the Egyptian Sun-God. Much of language was taken directly from The Egyptian Book of the Dead.)
"The Horus, Strong Bull, Son of Ra, the King of Upper and Lower Egypt, Chosen of Ra, He of the two Goddesses, Protector of Egypt and Curber of Foreign Lands, Ramesses, Beloved of Amun, a King excellent like Ra, the Lord of the Two Lands, Chosen-of-Ra, the Son of Ra.
"He made it as his monument for his father, Atum, Lord of Heliopolis, erecting for him two great obelisks whose pyramidions are of fine gold, the Son of Ra, may he live forever.
"The Horus, Strong Bull, Chosen of Ra, loving festivals like his father, Ptah-Tatenen, the Son of Ra, Ramesses, veritable god...
"The Horus, Strong Bull, Son of Ra, Chosen of Ra, created by the gods... the Golden Horus..." (Golden Bull - remember the Golden Calf? Amazingly, there are statues of Bulls on nearly every corner in NYC! Worship of Mammon, the Bull Market! - See photo of Wendy with "Egyptian Bull." )
The Torah Portion, 25th of Av
A section from the Torah portion for August 26, 2000, the 25th of Av, 5760, addresses the specific abomination represented in the physical presence of the obelisk in New York City behind the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
If America in general and New York in particular represent Egypt in which the Jewish people are held captive in the slavery of sin and unbelief, Mammon and Wall Street, then now is the time for God to bring them out of spiritual bondage and into the Kingdom of His Dear Son. Perhaps that is why the Lord has stirred me up to start producing our award-winning musical on the life of Moses, "Mendel & Moses. "
And now we have been invited to present showcases of both shows, "Mendel & Moses" and "Mendel's Messiah" (formerly "Rabboni," the off-Broadway sensation) in New York on December 22 & 23. We hold the "Key of David" to open the eyes of the Jewish people through these anointed musical theater outreaches. Our musicals are going to Broadway for the glory of God, and will proclaim to His chosen ones, "Come out of her, My people!" Come out of Egypt and come into the Kingdom of God! Come out of America and return to the Land of your fathers! (See photo of Jeremiah in front of the Obelisk.)
The Hunters Are Coming!
Ha'aretz, the Israeli newspaper, reported on August 27th,"Anti-Semitism surfaces in Democratic Offices -- While vice-presidential candidate Joseph Lieberman made his first solo campaign appearances as Al Gore's running mate, anti-Semitic slurs surfaced at Democratic party offices north of San Francisco. The message - 'No Jew in the White House' was plastered inside the headquarters."
A Warning to my Jewish brethren: Get ready to run for your lives, back to the Land of your forefathers. When America burns, and prosperity fails, who will be blamed? Who has always been blamed? The Jews. Look to no other savior but your God and His only begotten Son, Yeshua the Jewish Messiah.
May the Lord God of Israel bless you with good health, joy and true Shalom.
In Yeshua Messiah's Love,
Jeremiah & Wendy Ginsberg
