Blind belief, the faith that kills

A British woman was interviewed after the latest Muslim attack in London that left seven dead and nearly fifty injured.  Her son got a knife stuck in him, with the words “this is for Islam!”  She said, “These people saying they’re doing it in the name of God is an absolute joke. The first commandment is “Thou shalt not kill, all faiths share that belief …”

Do they?

Actually, she is wrong about all faiths sharing the belief “You shall not kill.”  This is the trouble, many Westerners believe that Islam has that principle, or “the Golden Rule,” or the rule of conscience.  No.  In Islam, these are supplanted by Sharia law which is cast from the actions and words of Mohammed.

The reason they attack is because their holy book commands it!

Through Noah came the Noahide law, and through Moses the ten commandments.  Both  men from the Bible are regarded as prophets in the Quran. But Muslims regard Mohammed and  Sharia law as greater!

It’s true that God in the Old testament commanded killing, but it was a specific instance where the Israelites had to clear the giants out of Canaan, and those aligned with them.  There was a genetic problem, where Goliath’s brother had hands with six fingers and King Og of Bashan was 14 feet tall.  And a behavioural problem where the Canaanites did abominable things which God detested.

Nowhere else does God command indiscriminate killing.  Jesus, at his arrest, told his disciple to out down his sword, saying “those who live by the sword will die by the sword.”  Was he thinking of Mohammed’s arrival 600 years later when he said it?

It is true that most Muslims aren’t terrorists – but most terrorists are Muslims.    Islam also permits Taqiyya and Kitman, where Muslims can lie to us about their religion being “a religion of peace.”  Another law of theirs which is the opposite of ours, where we are told not to bear false witness.

The media and the politicians must know what’s in the Quran.  It’s their job to know what’s going on.  But they’re still censoring us by calling this “a terrorist attack.”  Why aren’t people allowed to use the ‘M’ word?

AB-solute proof, the blood that speaks

ab-negative-rarest-blood-typeDid you know there is proof for the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ?  We even know his blood type, from the cloth wrapped around his head. 

The cloth, called the ‘Sudarium’ is kept in a Cathedral in Oviedo, Spain.   And here’s something from the evidence room:  The blood stains match those on the Turin shroud. 

Also, blood tests done on both the Sudarium and the Shroud confirmed that the blood stains on both cloths were of the same blood type: AB.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sudarium_of_Oviedo

AB blood is extremely rare.  You may not know, but there is a special need for this blood.  AB Plasma is universal and can be used for all patients regardless of their blood type.

In Exodus 12:13 which speaks of the Passover lamb, it says “The blood shall be a sign for you.”  Not only is the lamb’s blood a sign, Christ’s blood speaks a better word than that of Abel, the first man to die.  Abel’s blood called out from the ground.  This blood calls out from the word.

The night before he died, Christ said “For this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.  Matthew 26:28

Do you need the universal, life-saving AB blood of this man who was crucified at Passover?
For those who demand evidence, I hope this humble blog post points you to the truth.
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free (John 8:32).
Happy Easter.

Israel and the fig tree

FigsWhen is the end of the world? I was asked that question at a party, by people who knew I was a believer.  Cults like the Jehovah Witnesses and men like Harold Camping do us no favours.

How would I know when time is up?  Jesus said it was not for us to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. Acts 1:7

I didn’t want to brush them off either.  Put on the spot, I hunted through my mind for what I’d read in the Bible.

Asked the same questions by the disciples, Jesus gave them a description of events that would happen at the times of the end.  You can read it in Matthew 24.  But he compacted 2,000 years into his answer, from the destruction of the Jewish temple in AD70 until the present day.  And he covered two groups – the nation of Israel, and the Church he would begin at Pentecost, fifty days after his resurrection. So you have to be mindful of that.

“Watch what happens with the nation of Israel,” I answered, knowing that Israel proves Bible prophecy.

Israel

Did you know that the fig tree represents the nation of Israel?  That’s why it was cursed for not having any fruit. Matthew 21:18-22

Jesus summed up his description of end times events by saying Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door. Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.”  Mathew 24:32-34

Cursed and cut down until 1948, the fig tree revived when Israel came back to its land and became a nation again.  The end times Jesus spoke about are here with the rebirth of that tree, the nation of Israel.

 

The wise men, who they were, and why the biblical account holds water

Caravane_Marco_Polo

The Magi were the wise men, the king makers.  No Persian was ever able to become king unless he was approved of and crowned by them.

Herod was really upset when the Magi rode into Jerusalem with their entourage after the birth of Jesus.  They’d made a journey of over 1000 miles to worship the King of the Jews.  And that title did not belong to Herod.

Being astronomers, they knew about the coming King and the constellation where his star would arise, from knowledge handed down by the prophet Daniel in Babylon.

Their story is preserved in Matthew 2.   This is an account that holds water; in other words it stacks up to scrutiny.  Their resting place is preserved in the account of Marco Polo, the famous 13th century Venetian explorer.  He claimed that he was shown the three tombs of the Magi at Saveh south of Tehran in the 1270s:

“In Persia is the city of Saveh, from which the Three Magi set out when they went to worship Jesus Christ; and in this city they are buried, in three very large and beautiful monuments, side by side. And above them there is a square building, carefully kept. The bodies are still entire, with hair and beard remaining. One of these was called Jaspar, the second Melchior, and the third Balthasar.”

wisemen“Messer Marco Polo asked a great many questions of the people of that city as to those three Magi, but never one could he find that knew aught of the matter, except that these were three kings who were buried there in days of old.
However at a place three days’ journey distant he heard of what I am going to tell you. he found a village there by the name Cala Ataperistan, which is to say, “The castle of the Fire Worshippers”. And the name is rightly applied, for the people there do worship fire, and I will tell you why.
They relate that in old times three kings of that country went away to worship a prophet that was born, and they carried with them three manner of offerings, Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh; in order to ascertain whether that prophet were God, or and earthly King, or a Physician. For, said they, if he take the Gold, then he is an earthly King; if he take the incense then he is God; if he takes Myrrh he is a Physician.”

Persia is now modern day Iran, and Tehran is to the north of Saveh.

The ground that can’t hold water

Another legend about Saveh is the Lake of Saveh. It is a lake which is said to have been located near the city.  According to the legend mentioned in historical Persian texts, this lake dried out on the night of the birth of Muhammad, Islam’s prophet …

Muhammed came along about 600 years later.  Rejecting Christ, he founded Islam, declaring Judaism and Christianity were “wrong.”  I’ll leave it up to you to decide whether his claims hold water.  If I don’t blog again before Christmas, I wish you a happy Christmas.  And may you walk with the wise.  “He that walks with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.” Proverbs 13:20

The prophet Jeremiah wrote: “LORD, you are the hope of Israel; all who forsake you will be put to shame. Those who turn away from you will be written in the dust because they have forsaken the LORD, the spring of living water.” Jeremiah 17:13

Huge Oil Discovery in Israel

Last month Israel had a freak sandstorm of Biblical proportions, the worst since the state of Israel began.  It lasted four days and ended just before Rosh Hashana on Sept 13th 2015, the Jewish New Year.  Normally sandstorms come from the south, but this one blew in from Syria and covered the land. 

In Bible prophecy a vast coalition will advance against Israel from that direction, “like a cloud that covers the land.”  Ezekial 38

"You will advance against my people Israel like a cloud that covers the land.  In days to come, Gog, I will bring you against my land,
so that the nations may know me when I am proved holy through you before their eyes."  Ezekial 38:16 

This week I’ve been wondering why China is getting involved in the Syrian conflict, and why it’s beginning to look like World War 3.

Watching the news on TV didn’t enlighten me, but I didn’t expect the media to cover it from the angle I’m looking at – the Bible prophecy in Ezekial 38 and 39. The prophet Ezekial wrote about a war in the latter days, where God puts a hook in the jaws of the prince of Rosh (Russia) to drag him and his allies into a conflict on the mountains of Israel.

With that in mind, I’ve been keeping an eye on the conflict to see if there’s something that would cause Putin to attack Israel.  After I prayed about it, news was announced of a major oil discovery this week – on the mountains of Israel, the Golan Heights.  This is a game changer.  That land is under dispute with Syria.  After this oil find, you can bet Syria is going to want the Golan Heights back.  And Russia is Syria’s ally.  Here might be the hook in the jaws of Gog.  If Russia invades Israel, you’d better start reading the Bible for your news.

Potentially game-changing oil reserves discovered in Israel

Afek Oil and Gas, an Israeli subsidiary of the U.S. company Genie Energy, confirmed the find in an interview with Israel’s Channel 2 TV.  They said the strata was 10 times as much as the normal strata so they’re talking about we are talking about significant quantities.  They started drilling in December 2014.

Notable investors and shareholders of Genie Energy are Howard Jonas, former US Vice President Dick Cheney, Michael Steinhardt, Jacob Rothschild, and Rupert Murdoch.

It’s an interesting name, Genie Energy – and the shareholders are all powerful men.  And power corrupts.  Their corporate logo is an oil lamp.  A Genie (or Jinn) is a spirit of Arabian folklore, as depicted traditionally imprisoned within a bottle or oil lamp.  I wonder what’s going to happen when they let this Genie loose.  

China has reportedly sent warships to the coast of Syria to “observe” the actions of US and Russian ships.  China slammed Obama for failing to prove that the chemical weapons attack was the work of the Syrian government, charging that Washington’s “geopolitical interests” in the region were behind the military build-up.  The editorial also complained of the total lack of media coverage in America concerning reports that Syrian rebels admitted responsibility for last month’s chemical weapons attack, and accused the White House of “ignoring logic as it beats war drums.”  Source: http://www.infowars.com/report-china-sends-warships-to-coast-of-syria/

Now it becomes clearer why Washington wants to remove Assad, and why Putin wants to keep Assad.  Washington doesn’t even care what Islamic horror Assad would get replaced with.  Look at what happened to Libya after they removed Gadhaffi.  Before it had the highest standard of living in Africa.  Now it’s a failed state.

The Golan Heights

In the Bible this territory was given to the tribe of Joseph through his son Manasseh.  It’s disputed territory because it’s in the Golan Heights, which Israel captured from Syria in the 1967 Six Day War.

In Jacob’s blessing to Joseph in Genesis 49:22 he speaks of Joseph getting “blessings of the deep that lies beneath.

The blessing from the deep is confirmed in Moses blessing, when he gave the tribes their territory: “And of Joseph he said, Blessed of the LORD be his land, with the precious things of heaven, with the dew, and the deep lying beneath.

This blessing is going to be a double-edged sword that will probably lead to war.  Because when Jacob gave Joseph his blessing, we read on the next line, Genesis 49:23: “The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him.”  The bow is associated with Ishmael, the father of the Arabs and the ancestor of Mohammed (Genesis 21:20).  And we know the Arabs hate Israel.


Here you can see the sandstorm from 8th-12th Sept 2015 that covered the land like a cloud.
Is it a warning sign?

Blasphemy, Babylon, Bizmillah and Beezlebub

isis-hamas

“And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.”

When the Apostle John was given a revelation about what would happen in the end times, he saw a beast rise up full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.  Blasphemy is a contemptuous or profane act, utterance, or writing concerning God – sort of like Jihadists running around beheading innocent people while wearing “In the name of God” on their foreheads.

Isis is riding this beast.  It’s no coincidence that she’s now got an army named after her. 
Upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth. Revelation 17:5.

Let’s get the measure of this thing.  We have to because Babylon is now hiding in plain sight.
She sits upon many waters. Revelation 17:1
She wears purple and scarlet. Revelation 17:4
And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth. Revelation 17:5
She was drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.  Revelation 17:6
And here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits. Revelation 17:9

 If you have been studying biblical prophecy you are probably going to think the location of this rich and blood-thirsty religion is Rome.  I don’t think so.  Let’s forget the conventional thinking.  The location calls for a mind of wisdom.  It’s more than one thing.  This has elements of Roman Catholicism AND Islam.

She is worldwide, has priests that wear purple and scarlet, wears a name upon her forehead while she’s drunk on the blood of those who belong to Jesus.  This mother of all religious cults sits on seven mountains.  Her name is Isis.  Her name changes with the empire she is in.  Isis required her priests to be celibate.  Isis called herself “the Queen of Heaven”.  She holds Horus, her infant son and her symbol is the crescent moon.

In the 5th century BC, the goddess in its pre-classical Arabic form was Alilat which means “the goddess”.  Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabic_language

Isis sits at Rome and Mecca.  We know that Rome has seven hills, but did you know Mecca also has seven hills?

Sun worshipHow is it that Isis and Horus look like Mary and Jesus?  It goes all the way back to Adam.  Adam taught the story of the Messiah to Seth, and Seth taught it to Noah.  They used the stars as a mnemonic to tell the story of the Son of God who would be born of a virgin.  This mnemonic was called the Mazzaroth, or Zodiac, or “the Way” in Sanskrit.  Jesus said He was “the Way, the Truth and the Life”.   The story was perverted at the tower of Babel by Nimrod the first world dictator.  This is why the zodiac has so many similarities among the many nations and cultures.  God confused their languages but they retained common threads about the stories hidden in the stars and the account of the flood.

Babylon is rising again and is slated for judgement;
Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins,
so that you will not receive any of her plagues;
for her sins are piled up to heaven,
and God has remembered her crimes.
Give back to her as she has given;
pay her back double for what she has done.
Pour her a double portion from her own cup.
Give her as much torment and grief as the glory and luxury she gave herself.
In her heart she boasts,
‘I sit enthroned as queen.
I am not a widow;
I will never mourn.’
Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her:
death, mourning and famine.
She will be consumed by fire,
for mighty is the Lord God who judges her.”  Revelation 18.

Bismillah and Beezlebub

The infernal arabic wording on the Hamas and Isis headbands is “Bismillah“.  Bismillah is from the first verse of the first chapter of the Koran and it means “In the name of God”. 

Here’s an interesting thing;
Bohemian-rhapsody-rage-faces18What starts off with Bismillah and ends with Beelzebub?
The answer is Queen’s verses in the song Bohemian Rhapsody;
Easy come, easy go, will you let me go?
Bismillah! No, we will not let you go. (Let him go!)
(Bismillah x 2)
Will not let you go. (Let me go!)
Never, never let you go
Never let me go, oh.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
Oh, mama mia, mama mia (Mama mia, let me go.)
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me.

No-one but Queen really know what the lyrics mean – but the devil is in the details.

Jesus saidThe student is not above the teacher, nor a servant above his master.  It is enough for students to be like their teachers, and servants like their masters.  If the head of the house has been called Beelzebub, how much more the members of his household!”  Matthew 10:24

Noah’s ark mentioned in 1st century book

Flavius JosephusDid you know that 2,000 years ago people could go and see the remains of Noah’s Ark?  I found the reference in a book from the 1st Century by a Jewish historian named Flavious Josephus, which I am reading at the moment.

This is what I read from Chapter 2 of his book, Antiquities of the Jews:

“But when Monobazus was grown old, and saw that he had but a little time to live, he had a mind to come to the sight of his son before he died. So he sent for him, and embraced him after the most affectionate manner, and bestowed on him the country called Carra; it was a soil that bare ammomum in great plenty: there are also in it the remains of that ark, wherein it is related that Noah escaped the deluge, and where they are still shewn to such as are desirous to see them.”   Josephus – Antiquities of the Jews, Chapter 2.

I downloaded it as an eBook.  It can be read here: http://penelope.uchicago.edu/josephus/ant-20.html

The land of Carra is in the Armenian region of Turkey.

Were you taught this at school I wonder?
