Ahmadinejad: Jesus and Mahdi Will Come to End Repression


© December 19, 2006

 

Mohammedan Shi’ites (probably Twelvers in particular) believes something that should provoke an immediate in the mind of a Christian that studies Eschatology:

 

Ahmadinejad then made a connection between Jesus and the Imam Mahdi, believed by Shiites to have disappeared as a child in A.D. 941. When the Mahdi returns, they contend, he will reign on earth for seven years before bringing about a final judgment and the end of the world. (Emphasis mine. WND)

 

What is the Eschatological image that splashes into your mind when you read, “(the Mahdi) will reign on earth for seven years before bringing about a final judgment and the end of the world”?

 

Hello! Christians are taught that the anti-Christ will reign for seven years of Tribulation then at Christ’s Second Coming Satan, Anti-Christ and False Prophet are chained in a prison in Hell for a thousand years while Christ reigns on earth.

 

If Ahmadinejad’s Mahdi shows up it will be the anti-Christ. Ahmadinejad is doing his best to create the conditions that his deluded mind believes will coax the Mahdi’s return. Those conditions are global chaos.

 

Ahmadinejad has stated that both the Mahdi and Jesus will return to end repression on the earth. Since Iran is one of the most repressive nations on the planet, I am guessing ending repression is forcing the globe to convert to Mohammedanism or die.

 

Yes that sounds like the wickedness of the seven years of Tribulation.

 

Here is a Christian hypothesis: Allah = Satan, Mahdi = anti-Christ and Mohammedan concept of Jesus = False Prophet.

 

How is that for shirking off “Political Correctness?”

 

Dear friend here is some wisdom to realize. Radical Mohammedanism dominates the public agenda and the spirit of all Mohammedans (Arab, Iranian, African, Indonesian et al). The majority that call themselves moderate are intensely quiet when the riots, murders and bodily desecrations occur. Mohammedans have become so vocal that in the West (and America) we are so consumed with the fear of offending these devils, we look for statistics that validate that only a minority of Mohammedans are radicals.

 

This is ludicrous!

 

North American Mohammedan organizations such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its Canadian brother (CAN-CAIR) were founded by known terrorists. Some of these founders are in jail and yet the American government reaches out to CAIR as the representative of Mohammedans in America.

 

Now I want to be clear in this declaration of frustration with the Western (and American) mindset. And I know it will sound like Bill Clinton saying, “I did not have sex with that woman.” The clarity I wish you to see is that I am not a racist. I do not hate Arab or Iranians. I think the self-proclaimed religion of Islam (I prefer Mohammedanism) is a danger to Liberty and Freedom as Western Society knows it. If American and European Mohammedans could assimilate in to the Western belief system of Liberty and Freedom, I would not have a problem with the practice of their faith.

 

Mohammedans cannot and forcefully choose not to assimilate into the West. Instead Mohammedans clamor for rights to follow their Sharia Law and Quran. This is a segregated exclusion that is not even afforded Christians and Jews of the Judeo/Christian heritage. Why should the West grant such exclusionary rights to Mohammedans that do not believe in Liberty and Freedom? Americans, Canadians and Europeans that provide such exclusionary rights are subjugating themselves to a foreign culture that will end Liberty and Freedom.

 

If America and Canada follow the path already taken in Europe, then rioting and retribution will evolve that will require extreme prejudice to combat both sides. It will make the rioting in Europe feel like a picnic.

 

So let us stop it NOW. Let us find a way in America (at least) to extend Liberty and Freedom to all EXCEPT when citizens have an agenda to end Liberty and Freedom.

 

[This WorldNetDaily report is what set me off: "Jesus, Mahdi both coming, says Iran’s Ahmadinejad —
In New Year’s greeting to Christians worldwide
asks what Christ would do if he were here today

Exposing the Agenda of Holocaust Deniers


Jonathan Rosenblum’s essay on Holocaust Denial is a must read! Do not be deceived by those who wish to manipulate history as if it was Mainstream Media propaganda. Rosenblum shows that Holocaust deniers are nothing more than anti-Semitic wolves trying to establish a paradigm that will make Israel’s destruction globally accepted.

 

Rosenblum postulates the true reason as to why Holocaust Deniers are active. That reason encompasses a malevolent evil in which I should have of realized. That reason reaches beyond mere anti-Semitism and stretches to the depths of Hitler’s “Final Solution.”

 

That reason is to find a plausible reason that the globe can get on board to “Wipe Israel off the map.” I finally see the agenda that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has in mind when he hosts a symposium on Holocaust Denial.

 

You have to read Jonathan Rosenblum’s “Holocaust Denial is no Joke!”

The Real Christmas Story


Man I love to read Rick Renner! I just finished reading an essay written about the Image of God.

 

Christmas is all about God loving His creation humanity. That Love is so dynamic that He divests Himself of the attributes of Godhood to make Himself clothed or incarnated in the flesh of humanity.

 

Renners essay reads more like a devotional to meditate. Enjoy the read and contemplate how the Image of God is applicable to your life and your lifes path to union with God.

Made in the Likeness of Men

Rick Renner

Sparkling Gems from the Greek

 

 

Who, being in the form of God,
thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
But made himself of no reputation,
and took upon him the form of a servant,
and was made in the likeness of men.
– Philippians 2:6,7

At this time of the year, believers all over the world celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. His birth is one of the greatest miracles that has ever occurred, for it was a moment when God Almighty laid aside His glory and appeared on earth as a man. How wonderful, how mar­velous to think that God would temporarily shed His divine appearance and actually take on the flesh of man! Yet this is precisely what happened the day Jesus was born in Bethlehem.

In Philippians 2:6 and 7, Paul wrote, Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.

Paul begins by describing the preexistence of Jesus before He came to the earth as a man, say­ing, Who, being in the form of God.…” The word being is a translation of the Greek word hupar­cho, a compound of the words hupo and arche. In this case, the word hupo means from, and the word arche means the first, original, or ancient. When it becomes the word huparcho, it depicts something that has always existed.

By using this key word that means to eternally exist , Paul is declaring that Jesus had no begin­ning but always existed. This also explains Jesus statement when He declared, “…Before Abraham was, I am (John 8:58). Thus, Philippians 2:6 could be translated, Who, eternally existing in the form of God.…” In other words, Jesus human birth in Bethlehem was not His beginning but merely His manifestation to man, a brief appearance in His eternal existence.

Paul writes that Jesus always existed in the form of God. The word form is the Greek word morphe. This word describes an outward form, which means that in Jesus preexistence, He looked just like God. He was not just a component of God, nor a symbol of God; in reality, He was God. And as the eternal God Himself, Jesus possessed the very shape and outward appearance of God – a form that includes great splendor, glory, power, and a Presence so strong that no flesh can endure it.

God existed in glory more wonderful than the human mind can comprehend and more pow­erful than human flesh could endure. Yet He desired to come to earth to purchase redemption for man. Therefore, God had no choice but to reclothe Himself in a manner that could be tolerated by man. This is why He “…made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. This is the true story of Christmas!

The phrase made himself of no reputation comes from the Greek word kenos, which means to make empty, to evacuate, to vacate, to deprive, to divest, or to relinquish. Because it was impossible for God to appear to man as God, He had to change His outward form. The only way He could make this limited appearance as a man was to willfully, deliberately, and temporarily let go of all the attributes we usually think of when we consider the characteristics of God. For thirty-three years on this earth, God divested Himself of all His heavenly glory and “…took upon him the form of a ser­vant…” (Philippians 2:7).

The phrase took upon him perfectly describes that marvelous moment when God reached out to lay hold of human flesh and take it upon Himself so that He might appear as a man on the earth. The words took upon him are from the Greek word lambano, which means to take, to seize, to catch, to latch on to, to clutch, or to grasp. This word lets us know that God literally reached out from His eternal existence, reached into the material world He had created, and took human flesh upon Himself in the form of a servant.

The word form in this phrase is exactly the same word that describes Jesus being in the form of God. It is the Greek word morphe. This means that just as Jesus in His preexistent form had all the outward appearance of God, now Jesus existed in the exact form of a man – appearing and liv­ing on this earth in exactly the same way as any other man. For a brief time in His eternal existence, Jesus emptied Himself of His divinity and literally became a man in every way.

Not only did God become man, but He took upon Himself the form of a servant. This is the Greek word doulos, which refers to a slave. Paul now uses this word to picture the vast difference between Jesus preexistent state and His earthly life.

Paul goes on to say that Jesus “…was made in the likeness of men. The phrase was made is the Greek word ginomai, which means to become, indicating that this was not Jesus original form but it became His new form. This clearly describes the miracle that occurred when God became a man. Jesus had always existed in the form of God, not the form of man. But taking upon Himself human flesh, He was formed in the womb of the Virgin Mary and became a man.

God literally took upon Himself the likeness of a man. The word likeness is the Greek word homoioma, which refers to a form or resemblance. This refers not only to Jesus being made in the visible likeness of men, but also in the human likeness of men. In other words, when Jesus appeared on this earth, He came in the actual form of a man and was just like man in every way.

Jesus was so completely made in the likeness of men that Hebrews 4:15 declares He was even tempted in every way that men are tempted. It says, For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

So we see that when God the Father sent His Son into the world, Jesus left His heavenly home and took upon Himself human flesh. And because of this great exchange, He has stood in our place; He has felt what we feel; He is touched with the feeling of our infirmities; and He intercedes for us with great compassion as our High Priest.

At this time of the year, we are prone to think of Jesus as a little baby in a manger in a Bethlehem stable. Certainly this is true, but we should never forget that Bethlehem was not Jesus beginning. It was merely a brief appearance in His eternal existence.

Out of His deep love for you and me, Jesus was willing to leave His majestic realms of glory to enter the realm of humanity. Shedding all His visible attributes that were too much for mans flesh to endure, He dressed Himself in the clothing of a human being and was manifested in the flesh. That little baby in Bethlehem was the eternal, ever-existent God Almighty, who dressed Himself in human flesh so that He could dwell among men and purchase our salvation.

Gods great love for us drove Him to come down to our level so He could understand us bet­ter and later become an effective High Priest on our behalf. Think how wonderful it is that God loves us to such an extent!

 

When Paul started this text on God becoming a man, he started by saying, Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus (Philippians 2:5). You see, God wants us to have the same mind or attitude that was demonstrated in Jesus Christ. Just as Jesus was willing to go this incredible distance to reach us, to love us, and to redeem us, we should desire to do the same for others!

This, then, is one of the primary messages of Christmas: We should be willing to divest ourselves of our privileges, such as the convenience and comfort of self-consumed living, and do whatever we can to reach out and help people. This is what Jesus did for us, so shouldnt we do the same for others?

Relevance of the Home Church Movement


Have you heard of the House Church Movement? I am certain that you have, however I doubt anyone is aware of the magnitude of HCM growth. Locations in which Christians are persecuted, the HCM is growing exponentially.

 

China is the greatest example of HCM growth. There is still persecution of Christianity in China; however it has not stopped the growth of Christianity. Indeed China has tried to control the HCM by licensing some Home Churches.

 

You may not be aware that the HCM is also growing in North America. George Barna lists the HCM as growing significantly in America:

 

According to statistics the house church community in North America is numerically about halfway between the Catholic Church and the Southern Baptist Convention (which is the second-largest denomination in the U.S.). [OpenHeaven.com]

 

 

The Barna implication is that the HCM is greater in number than the Southern Baptism Convention the second largest organized Church Denomination in America.

 

There is a website dedicated to the HCM. The website is labeled House Church Central. House Church Central lists the plusses and minuses of Home Churches:

 

Plus:

  • Historical. The house church is the biblical church. All of the churches in the New Testament era were small assemblies that met in homes. While setting up institutional forms of "church" may or may not provide a way to honor God, the movement toward the institution and the human authority that tends to accompany hierarchical institutional structure are not theologically neutral.

 

  • Growth. The most explosive growth of Christianity in our own time has taken place in the likes of the People’s Republic of China where its only expression has been the illegal, underground house church (more recently the PRC has installed a government-licensed "Three Self" church in an effort to control a movement that decades of political repression has failed to contain). Historian Del Birkey’s studies have led him to conclude that the house church is our best hope for the renewal in our times.

 

  • Resisting the Culture. Our culture desperately wants to change our doctrines so that it might Christianity to conform to its notion of "civil religion" and "political correctness." The house church has always been for this reason, just as Jesus said that his disciples should be in the Sermon on the Mount. That sermon outlines how the powerless disciple can be salt and light in a dark world (Mt. 5:13-14), how to withstand evildoers (Mt. 5:39) by showing God’s love to the world through suffering at the hands of persecution from bullies (Mt. 5:39), foreclosing landlords (Mt. 5:40), and occupying Roman authorities (Mt. 5:41). It speaks of giving and lending to the most hopeless credit risks (Mt. 5:42). It speaks of a praying community ("Our Father, who art in heaven …" Mt. 6:9) that fasts (Mt. 6:16), gives of itself (Mt. 6: 21), and depends completely on God (Mt. 25ff). It speaks of the non-judgment of individuals (Mt. 7:1), just as it speaks of the need to judge those who would be authorities in spiritual matters (Mt. 7:15ff).

 

  • Mission. There are several opportunities in our communities that are especially suited for the house church. An invitation offered to a work-place acquaintance to a home is much less threatening than one to a church, just as one example. Another is the unique value of the house church as a ministry to "the damaged" and the possibility of learning the joy of giving by elevating that practice to a personal level.

 

Minus:

  •  Authority. House church advocates reject any human authority other than the very real and present rule of Christ, who was inaugurated the king of his church at the first Pentecost (Acts 2). The house church assembles to know the will of its king through the Holy Spirit and to be obedient to that will. Many in the professional clergy, however, understand their role as a "priestly" one in which they are to be intermediaries between the Lord and His flock, being thus trusted through the process with a certain degree of authority. While they seek the benefits of the vibrant Christianity that manifests itself in small groups, and work hard to make small groups a part of the ministry of their churches, many harbor a concern that the groups might become a threat to their own relevance and livelihood.

 

  • Heresy. Others argue that house churches, due to their lack of seminary trained clergy, might follow the examples of Jonestown and Waco. In this they have a point, as the New Testament is full of epistles that attempt to correct a legion of heresies in various churches–and all of the New Testament churches were, in fact, house churches. It is hoped that these pages can help house churches avoid this pitfall, taking over the seminary’s role to the extent possible in a mere web site. [HCC]

 

The biggest Plus apparently is a lack of an organized hierarchy. The biggest Minus is the concern a Home Church might drive off the theological center to the left ditch or right ditch. HCC points of the fear of another Jonestown or Waco, which were both cults with Christian foundations. Jonestown represents a slide to the left and Waco represents a slide to the right. Both interpretations were heretical and based on the charismatic domination of one man.

 

Of course Christians need to watch out for heresy, however it begs the question: What is heresy?

 

Roman Catholics officially consider Protestants as heretical (and visa versa). Within Protestantism different Dominations consider their fellow Protestants as heretical. There is the Mainline Churches such as Episcopalian (Anglican), Presbyterian, Baptist et al that may consider the various Pentecostals as heretical. Among Pentecostals Faith Movement may be considered heretical. Faith Movement Pentecostals may consider Renewal Movement (Holy Laughter and manifestations leading to repentance and a new life) as heretical. I could on and on but you get the picture.

 

Thus a question of heresy should be more a question of practicing the Love of God and doing the Works of Jesus. Disagreements can be taken care of in the Judgment. I suspect Believers in Jesus Christ will be surprised pertaining the extension of the Grace and Mercy of God to those who practice Christianity.

 

As the Last Days approach, I firmly believe it is the HCM that will be of significance to Believers. I still believe there is a purpose for the Institutional Church; however as governments (including America) control the content of sermons and insist on Secular Humanistic moral relativity, it will be the Home Churches that will be the most relevant.

 

Organized Churches will be under government control and scrutiny, Home Churches will be able to operate autonomously. The autonomy will be under the constant threat of persecution yet autonomous nonetheless.

 

Then the Parousia will come in whichever way various Christians believe. The pre-mid-post tribulation thing will happen; it is just a matter of when.

SHOULD CHRISTIANS CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS


I enjoyed reading this article by Patricia King. She tackles the issues Christians have with Christianity. The date: Is it pagan? The tree: Is it pagan? Should there be a Christmas or the celebration of Old Testament Feasts such as Passover?

 

 

 

Passover is the time of the institution of the Eucharist and the symbolism of eminent Deliverance from slavery (Jews from Egypt and Christians from Satan’s rule). Passover leads Christ to the Cross.

 

 

 

Patricia King addresses these thoughts and concludes it is all irrelevant. The only thing that is relevant is the Love of God expressed through Christ as a gift of Grace to humanity.

SHOULD CHRISTIANS CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS

"When you remember His extravagant gift, how can you not reach out to bless others?"

 

 

The other day, I visited a museum in the Old City of Jerusalem. This museum featured some artifacts and remains of a priest’s home that was burned in the fire of the second tabernacle–approximately 70 years after Jesus died. Inscribed on the wall of the museum were the words of a Jewish Historian:

"The first tabernacle was destroyed because of idolatry, illicit relationships, and bloodshed. The second was destroyed because of pure hatred."

The Jews were divided in their perspectives at that time, and these differences in beliefs ended up in severe political and religious tensions. The factions became so volatile, that each group literally despised the other. In the midst of their quarrelling and divisive actions, the Romans came through the gates and burned the temple, killing men, women, and children. There were few survivors. Their houses were left desolate. The temple was burned to the ground. They were so focused on their differences that they failed to see the bigger battle.

Factions in the Church Today

I think of the church today with all our factions (divisions). One group stands against another due to differences in doctrinal and theological interpretations. We sometimes refuse to have anything to do with another due to differences of beliefs, and yet, we all believe that Jesus is Lord. We judge and condemn each other refusing to fellowship or labor together. Let’s beware–a house divided against itself will fall.

December is the month where the Christian world celebrates the birth of Christ. The traditional belief of the date of Christ’s conception was March 25 (around the spring equinox), and December 25th was nine months later. It is this date that we celebrate as the birth of Christ. Many have refuted this date as being accurate, and it is possible and even probable that it is not. Should this make a difference in our heart’s focus though?

Wars are arising in the Church even concerning the celebration of Christmas. Some challenge the celebration saying that it has pagan roots. They challenge the accuracy of the date, they claim that Christmas trees are evil because they were an object of pagan worship, and they say that caroling also has its foundation in paganism.

 

Some say, we should honor the Jewish feasts (Bible feasts) instead. Others in the body believe that to do so would be an expression of legalism and religion, and so the factions begin–the war rages.

Purity of the Heart is Important

 

"Man looks to the outward appearance but God looks to the heart."

Let us be careful not to get our focus off of what is important. Man looks to the outward appearance but God looks to the heart. If our desire is to celebrate the birth of Jesus at this time of the year, then let that be done according to the purity of the heart and with integrity of conviction before Him. The attention of the whole world is called to acknowledge the birth of the Savior at this time of year, even if they don’t believe.

 

Let’s pray during this time that the revelation of Christ will fill the earth. Would this not be a better way to spend our time, rather than being at war with each other over how we celebrate Him?

The Jewish Celebration of Hanukkah

Hanukkah is an eight-day Jewish festival that is celebrated in the month of December. This year, it is celebrated from sundown on December 15 through sundown December 23.
Hanukkah means "dedication," and so this celebration has great significance.

History of Hanukkah

The holiday commemorates the rededication of the holy Temple in Jerusalem after the Jews 165 B.C. victory over the Hellenist Syrians. Antiochus, the Greek King of Syria, outlawed Jewish rituals and ordered the Jews to worship Greek gods.

In 168 B.C., the Jews holy Temple was seized and dedicated to the worship of Zeus. Some Jews were afraid of the Greek soldiers and obeyed them, but most Jews were angry and decided to fight back.

The fighting began in Modiin, a village not far from Jerusalem. A Greek officer and soldiers assembled the villagers, asking them to bow to an idol and eat the flesh of a pig, which are activities forbidden to Jews.

 

The Greek officer asked Mattathias, a Jewish High Priest, to take part in the ceremony. He refused, and another villager stepped forward and offered to do it instead. Mattathias became outraged, took out his sword, and killed this villager, then killed the officer. His five sons and the other villagers then attacked and killed the soldiers. Mattathias’ family went into hiding in the nearby mountains, where many other Jews who wanted to fight the Greeks joined them. They attacked the Greek soldiers whenever possible.

Judah Maccabee (the second leader of the Judean revolt against the Greek-Syrians), and his soldiers went to the Holy Temple, and were saddened that many things were missing or broken, including the golden menorah. They cleaned and repaired the Temple, and when they were finished, they decided to have a big dedication ceremony.

 

For the celebration, the Maccabees wanted to light the menorah. They looked everywhere for oil, and found a small flask that contained only enough oil to light the menorah for one day. Miraculously, the oil lasted for eight days. This gave them enough time to obtain new oil to keep the menorah lit.

 

 

 

 

Today, Jews celebrate Hanukkah for eight days by lighting candles in a menorah every night, thus commemorating the eight-day miracle.

 

 

 

What a wonderful celebration! At this time, we can remember to worship God as a God of Miracles. At this time, we can remember Jesus, who is the true Light of the world.

Some dear friends of ours, David and Stephanie Herzog introduced us to the Hanukkah celebration. The Herzogs and their children, celebrate Hanukkah in a wonderful way. They light the menorah every night and have gifts for the children to open each day. They celebrate by opening their home to family and friends, as they serve special meals, and enjoy times of visiting, prayer, worship, and showing hospitality. We as a family, were so touched last year through the Herzog’s family celebration, that this year, we are going to celebrate Hanukkah. I love it.

What About Christmas?

 

 

"Christmas to us is a wonderful celebration and remembrance of the birth of our Savior."

 

 

 

Do we need to abandon our tradition of celebrating Christmas in exchange for Hanukkah? What if December 25th is not really the actual birthday of Jesus? What if the origin of the Christmas tree is a pagan practice?

As a family, we celebrate Christmas. The Bible says, "to the pure all things are pure." Christmas to us is a wonderful celebration and remembrance of the birth of our Savior. I love reflecting on the extravagant gift of our Heavenly Father’s wonderful love at this time, even though we are called to remember Him at all times, not just in this season.

Our tradition is to give gifts to others at this time in the same way, our Father has blessed us. It is a holiday filled with love, kindness, joy, and blessing. As a ministry, we are busy preparing boxes of gifts and turkey dinners, complete with all the trimmings to give to the poor. We have special projects to care for single parents and orphans.

 

When you remember His extravagant gift, how can you not reach out to bless others? Caring for the poor blesses His heart, and so this is our gift back to Him. We do this all throughout the year, but during this season, we have special added touches that we really enjoy.

In our tradition, we do have a tree. I have never thought of this as a pagan ritual. For us, it has a different meaning. An evergreen tree to me is a symbol of life. Jesus is the Tree of Life and as we abide in Him, we have life. If we mediate on His Word day and night, we will be like a tree planted by rivers of water. Isaiah says that we are like trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord that He might be glorified. The lights on the tree remind us that He is the Light of the World and that we reflect His light and beauty in the earth.

Our tradition includes filling our home with family and friends. We host special meals and celebrations with our team and those we love. We light the fire, burn specially scented candles, bake cookies, and decorate our home and center with beautiful reminders of His love, joy, and peace.

A Special Season to Be Enjoyed

 

"Let us not walk with judgment towards each other as to how we are going to celebrate the season."

December is a special time of year. For some, it is a celebration of Hanukkah remembering Christ, the miracle working God and the Light of the world. To some, it is a celebration of Christmas remembering that Christ came into the world to save sinners. And to some, like ourselves, it is a celebration of both. To me, it all sounds wonderful. It is all about Him. Let’s celebrate in as many ways as we can with a heart full of passion. He is worthy!

Let us not walk with judgment towards each other as to how we are going to celebrate the season. Let us simply walk in our own convictions, and then, go love everyone with extravagant love!!! Enjoy and embrace your conviction to the fullest, but don’t judge another.

So don’t let anyone condemn you for what you eat or drink, or for not celebrating certain Holy days, or new moon ceremonies, or Sabbaths. For these rules are only shadows of the reality yet to come. And Christ Himself is that reality. Colossians 2:16-17

 

 

 
In the same way, some think one day is more holy than another day, while others think every day is alike. You should each be fully convinced that whichever day you choose is acceptable. Those who worship the Lord on a special day, do so to honor Him. For we don’t live for ourselves or die for ourselves. If we live, it’s to honor the Lord. And if we die, it’s to honor the Lord.

So why do we condemn another believer? Why do you look down on another believer? Remember, we will all stand before the judgment seat of God.

Yes, each of us will give a personal account to God. So let’s stop condemning each other. Romans 14:5, 6a, 7, 8, 10, 12

Have a wonderful time this season, enjoying reflections of His goodness and expressing it to others. May your home be filled with the essence of His glorious presence.

Happy Holidays

–Love Him and love each other.
–Make the season special!

Joy to the world, the Lord is come.
Let earth receive her King!

Glory to God in the Highest, and on earth Peace and Good Will towards men.

Be Blessed!

Is Jesus a Palestinian Mohammedan?


We are coming upon a time that celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ as the Son of God by Christianity. Roman Catholics and Western Protestants celebrate on December 25 and the Eastern Rite Christians celebrate a week later.

 

Every Christian should know where God took on the flesh of a man in the His Incarnate birth. Bethlehem has been a Christian city since the Roman Empire days. Even under the conquest of Mohammedans, the majority of population of Bethlehem was Christian.

 

Radical Islamism has changed that. Christians had over 80% of Bethlehem’s population in 1948. That was the year the Western World allowed Israel to form a sovereign nation. I say allowed because the West did little to actually preserve that sovereignty. For the Jews of Israel in 1948, it was fight or die fighting.

 

Today Radical Islamism has forced a majority of Christians to flee Bethlehem.

David Horowitz Blasts Jimmy Carter Lunacy


Horowitz exposes Carter for the Left Wing liar that he is. Carter’s Book Palestine: Peace, not Apartheid portrays Israel as a government of racists and oppressors.

 

Horowitz is so livid that he writes the true story of Modern Israel. The real oppressors are the Middle Eastern Mohammedans that have attempted to destroy the Jewish Homeland from the day of its inception.

 

When Carter marches around America pushing his pack of lies bound in a book, he is pushing the Mohammedan agenda that Mohammedan children are taught from the day they are able to comprehend the language of their forefathers. These lies are the propaganda machine radical Mohammedanism intently spread in their anti-Semitic agenda.

 

This is part of the arrogance of Mohammedanism in the delusion that their creed is superior and all other creeds are inferior. A superiority complex is fine and dandy, however a Mohammedan superiority complex implies the inferior must join the cult or die.

 

Kenneth Stein resigned as Executive Director of the Carter Center’s Middle East program. Why? Because there are outright errors in Carter’s book. When will Leftists in Europe and America wake up that the primary goal of Mohammedanism is to force the globe to submit to Mohammed’s Allah by hook or by crook?
