Kill Til We Have Jerusalem

Yesterday we looked into who Fatah was and talked a bit about the conference they are having in Bethlehem. Even though the UN and other Western Governments want us to believe that Fatah is moderate and a party they can deal with....the statements coming from this Fatah conference are less than convincing.

"Fatah will continue to sacrifice victims until Jerusalem will be returned [to the Palestinians], clean of settlements and settlers," the paper states.

Uh...yeah....that ain't gonna happen. No one will ever clear all the Jews out of Jerusalem.... so I guess Fatah just declared an eternal war.

Read article here;

Let's remember that Jerusalem is never mentioned in the Koran. So why do the Muslim extremists have such an un-natural hunger for this city? It can only be that Satan desires this city because God calls it the "apple of His eye." What God claims for His own...Satan will attempt to corrupt, plunder, destroy and possess.

Military Option On Iran

Yes,....we would prefer to talk, drink tea, exchange handshakes and then head home and keep living the American Dream.

But what if the foreign leader is a power hungry guy with small-man's Kim Jong Il and President Ahmadinejad? What if they don't want to shake hands and cooperate with our desires? What if they don't give a rat's a-- about Obama and his messiah-like charisma?

It's happening exactly that way in North Korea and Iran. How long do we talk before we realize that the military option has to be pulled out?

Today in the Wall Street Journal, General Wald, a retired 4 star general discusses just such a thing.

If such pressure fails to impress Iranian leadership, the U.S. Navy could move to blockade Iranian ports. A blockade—which is an act of war—would effectively cut off Iran’s gasoline imports, which constitute about one-third of its consumption. Especially in the aftermath of post-election protests, the Iranian leadership must worry about the economic dislocations and political impact of such action.

Should these measures not compel Tehran to reverse course on its nuclear program, and only after all other diplomatic avenues and economic pressures have been exhausted, the U.S. military is capable of launching a devastating attack on Iranian nuclear and military facilities.

Many policy makers and journalists dismiss the military option on the basis of a false sense of futility. They assume that the U.S. military is already overstretched, that we lack adequate intelligence about the location of covert nuclear sites, and that known sites are too heavily fortified.

Such assumptions are false.

One has to admit that it's a tad encouraging to hear a 4 star general saying that we could go to Iran and devastate them.....if the tea and handshakes fail, of course.

Fatah is Moderate?

Let's reveiw Palestinian politics. Fatah is the party that was elected in the general election a few years ago and they legally are supposed to be in power over all Palestinian territories including Gaza and The West Bank. And yes, Mahmoud Abbas is the President of Fatah and the man they currently have dressed up in a suit to visit with all of us Westerners. Fatah is supposed to be the more moderate of the two Palestinian parties...the other one being Hamas.

Let's also remember that Hamas and Fatah came to blows in the Gaza strip back in 2008 and started killing each other as Hamas overthrew Fatah and executed any Fatah members they could find. These actions, and hundreds of other examples, always fulfills the prophecy of Genesis 16:12, "He (descendants of Ishmael) will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone's hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers."

Now let's catch up to today; Fatah has just had a major meeting in Bethlehem. (of all places) This is the first meeting of it's kind in 20 years.

Eyewitnesses told The Jerusalem Post that at least two delegates, Tawfik Tirawi and Husam Khader, were beaten by security officers for allegedly disrupting the discussions.

Scenes of chaos erupted when the 2,200 delegates attending the conference learned that the Fatah leadership was not planning to present them with a detailed report about the faction's financial, administrative and political performance over the past 20 years.

Sounds like it could be similar to a soon coming scene in our own U.S. congress. :>

Anyway, the Fatah meeting did produce some unity. They all agreed to put Israel under requirements that they know Israel could never meet.

Fatah delegates meeting here Thursday resolved not to renew peace negotiations with Israel until all Palestinian prisoners are released from Israeli jails, all settlement-building is frozen and the Gaza blockade is lifted.

Let me translate and paraphrase what Fatah resolved; "No peace with you Jews until you let loose every Palestinian terrorist and criminal that you have in your jail, you have to quit building houses...meaning you can't have any more baby-Jews, and you have to tear down the Gaza wall so we can better target all your Jew-towns with our missiles and more easily carry out suicide bombings in Israel. If you do all of this...THEN we will talk to you about peace."

And Obama says...."You Jews better listen up and start working with these moderate people. Otherwise, you are no friend of ours!"

And God says..."I will bless those who bless you and I will curse those who curse you."

France Sank Middle East Peace

Below I will post an outstanding article written in the Jerusalem Post on how France threw a fly in the ointment of middle-east peace following WWI.

The Jews and Arabs at that time really didn't have a problem. In fact read this quote from King Faisal;

Faisal's petition also stated: "In Palestine, the enormous majority of the people are Arabs. The Jews are very close to the Arabs in blood, and there is no conflict of character between the races. In principles, we are absolutely at one."

Can you imagine if some Arab-Muslim king said that Jews and Arabs were close in blood today?? He would be hauled out and butchered. And this quote is 90 years old.

It sure appears as if Satan had his hand in these territorial talks some 90 years ago. Furthermore, if you want to begin to understand how and why many Muslims refer to the U.S. as "The Great Satan"'s important that you understand this piece of history....and why the Arabs refer to the year 1920, as the "Year of Catastrophe".

THREE INTERTWINED evils - the infidel European Allies, the infidel Zionists and the black substance the West craved - became conflated in the Arab mind to create one great Satan. Indeed, these three evils would galvanize the Arab consciousness for virtually the next century. For the first time in centuries, the Arabs stopped fighting each other. Sunni and Shi'a, tribal enemies squabbling over wells, those of the desert and those of the city, the intellectual and the peasant, they could all unite under one Islamic banner, because this was Am al-Nakba, the Year of the Catastrophe. Forevermore, 1920 would be a black year in the collective Arabic consciousness.

Hat tip to Julie E. for this outstanding article. I sure hope Obama, Mitchell and Rahm Emanuel will read it.

Quick Check on the Aliens

In the past, we have kept an eye out for what some of the "alien" websites are saying. As you know, we believe that any "aliens" out there traveling in "spaceships" are not actually from distant galaxies...but are actually the "fallen angels" who are playing out Lucifer's deceptive plans for planet earth. And yes, the frequency of their appearances are growing all over the world.

On one site I will post below, it is interesting that the Raelian Movement is using biblical words or phrases to add to the credibility of the deception. First off, notice that they use the Hebrew word, "Elohim" to refer to these highly advanced life forms that they claim are responsible for human life on earth. The word "Elohim" is used in the book of Genesis right at the very beginning.

Now check out this;

That embassy would become the Third Temple as predicted in the ancient scriptures. According to specifications provided by the Elohim, it must be built in a neutral location that has been granted rights of extraterritoriality and guaranteed neutral air space. Providing such an embassy and obtaining the necessary guarantees for the rights of its occupants will prove that humanity is ready for an official meeting with its creators.

Amazing!! Now they are saying that a Third Temple needs to be built!! And they are saying that the Third Temple was predicted in ancient scriptures.... Those of us who are Temple watchers know that the Jews are building momentum to build their own Third Temple in Jerusalem. Could Satan be planning on misquoting the bible to lure in biblically ignorant people? Of course we all know that Satan has done this exact thing in the past...most famously when he tempted Christ in the desert.

Visit the link here;

Matthew 24:24-25 "For false Christs and the false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect--if that were possible. See, I have told you ahead of time."

Is it possible that Jesus was warning us that fallen angels would appear out of the sky with whirling saucers capable of doing un-earthly things (great signs and miracles) in an attempt to deceive even the people who are indwelt with the Holy Spirit??

I will say it again.....DECEPTION IS GROWING!

Obama's Jews

In the past we have posted some thoughts from a Jew in Jerusalem who owns a jewelry shop. His name is Moshe (that translates to Moses, I think) We were introduced to him three years ago while on a trip to the Holy Land. In his latest newsletter, he makes some very disturbing statements about Obama. According to him, it's rare to find any Jews in Israel that are pro-Obama. I will post his comments below and bold letter some of the more amazing observations.

Moshe Kempinski
I read with great sadness the recent article in the Jerusalem Post by Marc Stanley called "The chutzpah of Obama's Jewish critics" ( ). The sadness came from the reading the almost delusional subtext of the seemingly factual article. It seemed to be the frantic writing of a man who deep down knows how wrong he is but will do everything and say anything to avoid that awareness.

It would be important to understand that the writer of the article, Marc Stanley is the chairman of the National Jewish Democratic Council .The NJDC has worked on the national level to help turn out Jewish voters in the election campaigns for the benefit of the Democratic Party. Their work involved getting out voter participation and providing voter education. Most importantly their work involved dispelling what they termed the “smear campaigns" launched by the opponents of Democratic candidates for office at every level. None of this makes what Stanly is saying as wrong but it does offer important perspective. Yet the sadness remains.

He begins with a dramatic statement" US President Barack Obama and his administration are making an unprecedented effort to reach out to the Jewish community. "
In light of the recent sad effort of Obama of inviting representing representatives of the Jewish community into his office but yet avoiding all the groups who would disagree with his policies, one would wonder about the validity of such a statement.
Stanley then displays a confusing amazement at the following statements of members of the administration he is so committed to promote. He is referring to the statements that came as a result of Israel and the Jewish community expressing concern regarding Iran’s murderous intentions. We hear how “the president has spoken of the "unbreakable" bond we share with Israel. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons "futile,"" Mr. Stanley it is difficult to understand your enthusiasm for such statements and how one is to find comfort in them.

In fact those supposedly dramatic statements have not served the allay the fears of members of the American Jewish leadership. Allan Drershowitz wrote "Many American supporters of Israel who voted for Barack Obama now suspect they may have been victims of a bait and switch. Jewish Americans voted overwhelmingly for Mr. Obama over John McCain in part because the Obama campaign went to great lengths to assure these voters that a President Obama would be supportive of Israel. This despite his friendships with rabidly anti-Israel characters like Rev. Jeremiah Wright and historian Rashid Khalidi."

Malcolm Hoenlein, executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, wrote "President Obama's strongest supporters among Jewish leaders are deeply troubled by his recent Middle East initiatives, and some are questioning what he really believes."

More importantly while Obama popularity is soaring in all those countries that saw themselves as enemies of America, President Obama has succeeded is reaching unprecedented lows in the popularity polls in Israel. A June poll found that just 6% of Israelis called him “pro-Israel,” In Israel Obama is no ally or friend .Though these Israelis are not potential voters they represent the people who will be most in danger due to the US president reckless approach of Carrot and stick( carrot to the world and stick it to Israel)

The most pathetic statement was found in the following delicious quote;

"NO ONE can credibly claim Obama and his administration are not talking to Israel. The reality is the administration is not only talking with Israelis, it is intensely collaborating and communicating with it- in person. In fact, Obama spoke with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu face-to-face about settlement growth."

Recently a representative of a major international news network remarked to me that the air in the room during the Netanayahi Obama meeting was not only oppressive and sour was poisonous. Yet Stanley is determined to be moved and excited that " Obama spoke with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu face-to-face about settlement growth"

Then Marc Stanley makes his scariest statement
"This administration has made an unprecedented effort to engage this community "

He is right but the word is not engage but rather enrage, or entrap and coerce.

Let's remember that Israel is God's bride. And as we prepare to treat her poorly and betray her to her enemies....the wrath and anger of God will be kindled. Yes, God will deal personally with each and every one of us on salvation issues, but the nations of the world will be judged bases on how they have treated the Jews and the Nation of Israel.

Many of us believe that (as U.S. citizens) is now time to fasten your seat belts. The ride may soon get extremely bumpy.

Psalm 83 Coming?

Let's remember that Psalm 83 tells us that a day is coming when the enemies of Israel will be laid low and put to shame. The enemies that it names are currently poised on the borders of modern-day of them being southern Lebanon. We know currently that Hezbollah has amassed it's fighters and 40,000 rockets on the northern border of Israel. (Thank you United Nations peace keepers for doing such a fine job of policing that area over the last 3 years) And things could go to red-hot in a heartbeat.

Brigadier-General Alon Friedman, the deputy head of the Israeli Northern Command, told The Times from his headquarters overlooking the Israeli-Lebanese border that the peace of the past three years could “explode at any minute”.

Let's further remember that Hezbollah is funded by Iran.

Hezbollah’s rearming is in the name of resistance against Israel. The real reason, however, probably has more to do with its ally Iran. If Israel carries out its threat to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities, the main retaliation is likely to come from Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Read full article here;

If Israel starts taking hits from Iran, Hamas in Gaza, Syria (Damascus) and Hezbollah in Lebanon...they may decide to put 3 of the 4 threats on permanent silence...which would go a long way towards fulfilling Psalm 83.

The Word of God never returns void.

Frustrating the Wise Men

Al Gore has to be upset. After all, he has been pumping global warming for a long time. He has the media on his side and lots of scientists as well. This is turning into BIG BUSINESS as the congress discusses "cap and trade" in their ill-founded attempt to regulate the climate. So it must be very upsetting to Al's plans that his home town of Atlanta just broke it's record for a low temperature in July...a record that had stood for 122 years.

I can about hear him praying now, "Come on Mother Nature!! You need to cooperate with us!! We are so close to saving you from yourself...don't go and tease the ignorant folks with record lows! Just keep it hot and dry for a few more years....please!!"

Marc Morano with says all across America, record low temperatures have been broken throughout the summer. He blames that on a recent trend of global cooling that has been in place for more than seven years.

Read short article here;

The bible tells us that God will frustrate our wise men and confound our intelligent men....and that sure appears to be coming true in our present day.

Time to Wake Up

Most all of you readers know that Israel is a sign that we are in the Last Days. And as the days grow really short...the focus will specifically target Jerusalem. It's simply so illogical that the world can be so concerned about Jerusalem...which has no seaport, no easy access, no major commodities, scarce water and old infrastructure...yet the world's eyes are on that city...that it must be a supernatural interest. Obama has even named a special envoy to be in charge of Jerusalem-U.S. relations. Amazing!

The article I will post below is by a prophecy buff named Brad Renollet...and his comments so resonated with me that I had to post them. Furthermore, it's Holy Spirit-therapy for me to understand that other Watcher's are seeing things exactly as I am seeing them. To God be the glory!

I recently talked to a few churches and youth groups about signs of the times and how close we are to the return of Jesus Christ for his church. As the day draws closer for His return, I am more and more compelled to get work done for the Kingdom of our Lord and Savior as we all should be. But in speaking to fellow Christians and churches, my heart is increasingly burdened that many don’t realize one particular sign that none of us should miss: the nation of Israel. And all we have to do is know a little bit of history and watch the nightly news.

I have recieved many of the same blank looks whenever I talk of Israel, Jews, Temples and Jerusalem. Even Christians who have been in the church for 50 years look at me like I am reading from a different bible.

Mr. Renollet ends his article with these comments;
Jesus is seated at the right hand of God the Father, interceding constantly for us…and He looks forward to one day soon coming back to get his bride, the church. Don’t be caught without oil in your lamp, but stand watch and be ready. The Word of God says that while we don’t know the day or the hour, we WILL know when the season is upon us. And that season is NOW.

"I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled," says Jesus.

Why Study Prophecy?

I actually get this question a lot. Lot's of people I talk to don't like to dwell on prophecy since a lot of it is has to do with death, destruction and judgement....they would prefer something a little more "fun" they stay away from it. I disagree strongly with this thought since Paul clearly tells us to, "Encourage each other with these words". There is real peace in knowing the future as the bible lays it out.

Others tell me that Christ is coming like a thief in the we will all be why bother spending even a second contemplating what is to come? If that's the case, why do you think Jesus told us to, "Watch!" at the end of Mark 13? Also, how would you reconcile that with 1 Thessalonians 5:4 which says, "But you brothers are not in darkness that this day should surprise you like a thief." Clearly, those who are watching, as Christ commands, will be tipped off to the closeness of His return for us.

Also, I love Chuck Missler's quote and have used it quite a few times; "When you see the stores decorating for know that Thanksgiving is close". In the same way...when you see the world stage being decorated for The know that the rapture (being caught up) has to be close.

Those reasons should be enough to get you started thinking, but Jack Kelly digs in even deeper.

And that leads me to what I think is the biggest reason. For that we'll go first to Isaiah 44:6-8.
This is what the LORD says- Israel's King and Redeemer, the LORD Almighty: "I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God. Who then is like me? Let him proclaim it. Let him declare and lay out before me what has happened since I established my ancient people, and what is yet to come- yes, let him foretell what will come. Do not tremble, do not be afraid. Did I not proclaim this and foretell it long ago? You are my witnesses. Is there any God besides me? No, there is no other Rock; I know not one."

Powerful words from Isaiah.

And I resonate strongly with his last paragraph. Prophecy helps us to get a sense of urgency to "snatch people from the fire"...before it's too late.

If you're not every bit as certain as I am about God, then try a study in prophecy. I bet it'll galvanize you into action just as it did me, especially as you begin to understand how little time is left. And even if you're already sure you know who God is, you still have a great reason to study prophecy. But it's not just so you'll be better informed about what's coming. It's so you'll feel the urgency to tell your friends about it while there's still time. Because if you listen carefully, you can almost hear the footsteps of the Messiah.

Baraq Ubamah

In Luke 10:18, Jesus says, "I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven". According to this article when you look at the greek word for lightning you will find the word, "astrape". The Hebrew equivalent is the word, "baraq". That's interesting since it seems to line up with our President's name.

But it doesn't end there. The word for heaven can also be interchanged with the word, "heights" as in Isaiah 14:14. If you look up the hebrew word for heights you will find the word, "bamah".

Thus, on the video, the announcer notes, "If spoken by a Jewish rabbi today, influenced by the poetry of Isaiah, he would say these words in Hebrew ... 'I saw Satan as Baraq Ubamah.'"

Read the whole article here;

So what can we make of this? Was Jesus giving a clue to the Jews of who the Man of Perdition actually will be? I have no idea, but I do know that Thessalonians makes it very clear that the anti-christ will not be revealed until the Holy Spirit is withdrawn from the earth....which is the rapture of the church. So if this is a clue...maybe it's a clue that is meant for the Hebrews.

I do know one thing for sure; events are getting VERY strange here on planet earth. It appears that the planet is groaning with birth pangs and it is also a fact that many "sons of the light" are getting very eager to be clothed in our immortal, glorified bodies.

Come Lord Jesus!

Building The Temple

Let's review; there have only been two temples in Jerusalem since time began. The first was Solomon's temple which was destroyed when the Babylonians hauled the Jews off to Iraq about 600 B.C. The second temple is commonly referred to as Herod's temple and was a rebuild of Solomon's temple and was built when the Jews returned from their Babylonian exile of about 70 yrs. Please remember that it was this second temple that Jesus would have worshiped at while on earth. Also remember that the second temple was the one that Jesus pointed to and said, "Not one stone will remain standing...". His words were of course fulfilled in 70 AD when Rome destroyed Jerusalem and scattered the Jews to all ends of the known world.


But the pressure and desire is building to build a third one. This is huge news for prophecy watchers since the bible is very clear that the anti christ will sit in this third temple and demand to be worshiped. And this won't happen until the Tribulation....and the rapture of the church will happen BEFORE the Tribulation. So I encourage you to keep looking for Christ sudden return to snatch us (His bride) and also keep listening for the trumpet which I believe will happen seconds before we are snatched.

And progress towards the building of the third temple continues;

The Temple Institute began work on the sacrificial altar Thursday, Tisha B’av, the day the Second Temple was destroyed almost 2,000 years ago.

The Temple Institute has already built several of the Temple vessels such as the Ark and the menorah, and has now embarked on an ambitious project to build the altar, which will ultimately measure 3 meters wide by 3 meters long and 2 meters tall.

During Thursday’s ceremony, which took place in Mitzpe Yericho just east of Jerusalem, the Temple Institute laid the cornerstone for the altar and demonstrated how tar will be used to cement the stones together. The Institute plans on bringing the altar to its proper place on the Temple Mount when the Temple is rebuilt.

Read full article here;

Another interesting piece of info is the desire of the Jews. Even a few years ago I remember reading that it was only a small minority of Jews in Israel who desired a third temple to be built. Today, Joel Rosenberg is telling us that it is now a substantial majority of Jews in Israel that want a temple.

* REBUILDING THE TEMPLE? -- Both the Old and New Testaments indicate a Third Temple will be built in the last days. Cynics and skeptics abound, to be sure. But a new poll published this week finds that a stunning 64% of Israelis want to see the Jewish Temple rebuilt on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. And it is not just religious Orthodox Jews who want to see the Third Temple built soon. Remarkably, 47% of secular Israelis want this as well, reports Only 36% of Israelis oppose the building of the Temple.

Finally remember that a few big hurtles exist for the building of the third temple....there are currently two Muslim mosques on the temple mount. When God says it's time, I am certain that a miraculous circumstance will happen that will clear the mount of these mosques and prepare the way for the third temple.

I'm wondering if the rapture of the church might provide enough of a "global circumstance" to set in motion the chain of events necessary for the soon revealed anti-christ to sign the peace agreement between the Jews and Arabs which allows the temple to be built?

Dancing With Damascus

Today the Wall Street Journal had an editorial about Damascus. Let's remember that Isaiah 17 says that one day Damascus will be no will be decimated.

Damascus is currently a hot-bed and a haven for terrorists. So naturally, Obama thinks the best course of action is to open up a dialogue with Damascus in the hope that we can all kiss and be friends. This action will certainly make our world even MORE dangerous.

Since taking power nine years ago, Syrian strongman Bashar Assad has: turned his country into a safe haven and transit corridor for jihadists en route to Iraq; funneled sophisticated munitions to Hezbollah and probably Hamas; sought to build an illicit nuclear reactor with North Korean help; mostly failed to liberalize Syria’s economy and resisted liberalizing its politics; publicly declared that Israel would never “become a legitimate state even if the peace process is implemented”; and ruled while Syrians have been implicated by a U.N. investigator in the 2005 assassination of Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri.

So, naturally, President Obama has made Syria a prime target for diplomacy as part of his new Axis of Engagement.

Read full article here;

How long will Israel wait before they deal with the terminal threats that are coming from Iran and being funneled into Syria? They certainly realize by now that America is no longer serious about taking a strong stance against Islamic terrorists....the current administration believes talking will win the day.

Falling Away

Thanks Lisa H. for filling in for me as "writer at large"! Awesome posts and we all sure appreciate your willingness to do this for us! Thanks again!

I will report that the High School youth trip to Lone Tree Bible ranch was a huge success....thanks to all that were praying for us. We sensed the spiritual warfare coming against us early on as we had numerous technical difficulties that were far more than "coincidence". Satan obviously did not want these 60 kids to hear about the theme of the week, "The fear of the Lord". But hear it they did...and I pray that many lives will be changed as a result of the messages that were shared.

During the week we were also studying the book of Romans. Even a casual reader of the book will understand that Apostle Paul clearly labels homosexual sex as "sin". It would be hard to understand it as anything other than that...and falls into the same category as adultery, bestiality and orgies.

But the Episcopal church doesn't see it this way. In fact, a large part of their body wants to place practicing homosexuals into leadership positions.

Read article here;

We are all created with a sin nature. That's a fact. But as Christ followers we are commanded to NOT act on every desire that our flesh suggests to us.

The article is simply more proof that in the Last Days men (and women) will surround themselves with many teachers who will simply tell them what their itchy ears want to hear.

What's next? Maybe a pastor who enjoys multiple partners? "Why not?", some would say....afterall, they would argue...he was created with that desire...."so it simply can't be sin."

And the falling away from the faith continues to gather steam.
