Stay Away from Indoctrination and Dogma

"As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming;" (Ephesians 4:14 NASB).

Sarah vs. Hagar and the Hebrew-Arab Conflict: Who is Israel?

Hamas-Fatah Palestinian President Abbas and Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu
The Land of Canaan or Eretz Yisrael (Land of Israel) was promised by God to the Children of Israel, but who are they? 

THE MORE I SEEK THE LORD, THE MORE I UNDERSTAND THAT ALL WHO CALL UPON HIS NAME WILL BE SAVED!

In his 1896 manifesto, "The Jewish State," Theodor Herzl (Hungarian journalist, playwright—the founder of the Zionist movement in 1897) repeatedly refers to the Biblical Promised Land.[1] Muslims also claim rights to that land in accordance with the Qu'ran.[2] Contrary to the Jewish claim that this land was promised only to the descendants of Abraham's younger son Isaac, they argue that the Land of Canaan was promised to the elder son of Abraham, Ishmael, from whom Arabs claim descent. But now Jews and Gentiles are grafted!

Likud is currently the most prominent Israeli political party to include the Biblical claim to the Land of Israel in its platform.[3]

The Hebrew people descended from Arabs in Babylon (modern day Iraq), Syria and Egypt, and later became "Israelites."

Deuteronomy 26:5 (NLT)
“You must then say in the presence of the Lord your God, ‘My ancestor Jacob was a wandering Aramean [Syrian] who went to live as a foreigner in Egypt. His family arrived few in number, but in Egypt they became a large and mighty nation.

To further illustrate how all people are biologically grafted, you must realize that Abraham was the father of all nations. Abraham's son, Isaac, married Rebekah, the sister of Laban the Arab. Isaac prayed for her and she conceived. Rebekah gave birth to twin boys, Esau (Edom) and Jacob. Arriving in Haran (Syria), Jacob saw a well where shepherds were gathering their flocks to water them and met the Arab Laban's younger daughter, Rachel, Jacob's first cousin. Laban deceived Jacob by switching Rachel's older sister, Leah, as the veiled bride, however, Jacob later married the Syrian Rachel as well.

In the Old Testament and Torah, Joseph is Jacob's eleventh son and the Arab Rachel's first. Down in Egypt, "...Pharaoh gave Joseph a new Egyptian name, Zaphenath-paneah. He also gave him an Egyptian wife, whose name was Asenath. She was the daughter of Potiphera, the priest of On [city of the sun]. So Joseph took charge of the entire land of Egypt" (Genesis 41:45). Abraham had other Arab sons besides Ishmael (Genesis 25:1-6).

John 4:19-24 (NLT)
WE MUST WORSHIP GOD IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH

19 “Sir,” the woman said, “you must be a prophet. 20 So tell me, why is it that you Jews insist that Jerusalem is the only place of worship, while we Samaritans claim it is here at Mount Gerizim, where our ancestors worshiped?”

21 Jesus replied, “Believe me, dear woman, the time is coming when it will no longer matter whether you worship the Father on this mountain or in Jerusalem. 22 You Samaritans know very little about the one you worship, while we Jews know all about him, for salvation comes through the Jews. 23 But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way. 24 For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.”

One of the major attacks on the Bible in the past 300 years has been directed against Moses and his authorship of the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Old Testament (Genesis–Deuteronomy). Such attacks on these foundational books of the rest of the Bible come both from non-Christians as well as professing Christians. However, Moses was educated by Pharaoh's daughter and was schooled in the ways of the Egyptians. Moreover, Moses would have had access to the Egyptians' secular records of Abram and Sarai's time in Egypt. Moses himself abandoned his privilege as the son of Pharaoh's daughter, and travelled vast lands. Moses would have had records of other civilizations. Put that all together with Moses' inspiration by God, and you have the Lord's first world reporter. "Terah took Abram his son and Lot son of Haran, his grandson, and Sarai his daughter-in-law... and he set out with them from Ur of the Chaldees toward the land of Canaan" (Genesis 11:31).

There is a move in the United States and the entire Western World to block anything from being said negatively against Islam. Exposing Islam and its doctrines that are contrary to Western culture is called Hate Speech. In both Europe and Canada , Christians have been heavily fined and threatened with jail for speaking negatively about Islam. Telling the truth accurately means nothing, as it is classified as Hate Speech. There are forces working in the United States to also promote that speaking against Islam is hate speech. Islam is being packaged and sold to the West as a peaceful religion. The Bible was written 500 years before Muhammad and therefore has nothing to say about Islam. In fact, the Bible only directly condemns pagan worship.

God took Abram from the land of Ur

King Ur-Nammu dedicated the great ziggurat of Ur in honour of Nanna/Sîn

The historical pursuit of Abraham's native home of Ur (if you dare) will take you on a plane, and then a 500-mile taxi ride from Amman, the capital of Jordan, to Baghdad, in Iraq (Biblical Babylon). This will follow a 200-mile dash southeast through a wasteland of sand and scrub grass.

Crossing the Euphrates River, you will pass through a half dozen military checkpoints, arriving at last in Ur. The only visual point of reference of ancient Ur is the pyramid-like brick tower, or ziggurat, built in tribute to Sin (Allah), the moon god, around 2100 B.C.

Abram (who God would later change his name to Abraham) made the same mistake that Adam made in the Garden of Eden—he listened to his wife, instead of God's promise to give him a son. 

For some reason, Abram's (Abraham's) Jewish descendants will later go into captivity in Egypt—Hagar's native land—and this may be part of the consequences of not listening to God. Yet, God is loving and delivers those who lament always with a SAVIOR. "No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening—it’s painful! But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way" (HEBREWS 12:11).

Genesis 15 (NLT)

The Lord’s Covenant Promise to Abram
15 Some time later, the Lord spoke to Abram in a vision and said to him, “Do not be afraid, Abram, for I will protect you, and your reward will be great.”

2 But Abram replied, “O Sovereign Lord, what good are all your blessings when I don’t even have a son? Since you’ve given me no children, Eliezer of Damascus, a servant in my household, will inherit all my wealth. 3 You have given me no descendants of my own, so one of my servants will be my heir.”

4 Then the Lord said to him, “No, your servant will not be your heir, for you will have a son of your own who will be your heir.” 5 Then the Lord took Abram outside and said to him, “Look up into the sky and count the stars if you can. That’s how many descendants you will have!”

God foretold Abram that the Hebrew people would go into slavery for 400 years...

Genesis 15:12-14 • New Living Translation (NLT)
12 As the sun was going down, Abram fell into a deep sleep, and a terrifying darkness came down over him. 13 Then the Lord said to Abram, “You can be sure that your descendants will be strangers in a foreign land, where they will be oppressed as slaves for 400 years. 14 But I will punish the nation that enslaves them, and in the end they will come away with great wealth.

The Holy Bible in Genesis chapter 16—as well as Galatians 4:21-31 is very clear that the 4,000 year-old "Hebrew-Arab-Egyptian Conflict" began with Abram and Sarai trying to bring about God's promise through their own human effort...

This is the same mistake that the London Society for Promoting Christianity Amongst the Jews made in the early 1900s—they thought that bringing the Hebrew people back to the Holy Land would  convert the Jews and bring about the Millennium—Jesus Christ's 1,000 year reign on earth (Revelation 20).


Remember also that Abram and Sarai went into Egypt, because of famine in the land of Canaan, which God used this situation for Pharaoh to bless Abram with more wealth to accomplish His plan...

"Then Pharaoh gave Abram many gifts because of her [Sarai, Abram's wife]—sheep, goats, cattle, male and female donkeys, male and female servants, and camels" (Genesis 12:16).

Abram and Sarai must have left Egypt with Hagar, and later we find in the book of Genesis that Sarai mistreats the Egyptian Hagar, who is in bondage to her. All these Biblical accounts foreshadow the Israelites' mistreatment of the Egyptian people by Joseph in return for the grain which the Egyptians themselves grew (Genesis 47:13-21, 23-25).

The irony of Abram and Sarai in Egypt—and later the Hebrew peoples' enslavement in Egypt—lends itself to the Bible's concept of predestination—in that God predestined before the foundations of the earth to send a Savior to save His people. However, as I will illustrate here, God's people are both Jew and Gentile.

Besides mistreating Hagar, her Egyptian servant, Sarai (Sarah) lied about laughing at the Lord (Genesis 18:-1-15)—verse '15 Sarah was afraid, so she denied it, saying, “I didn’t laugh.” But the Lord said, “No, you did laugh.”'

Genesis 16:1-15 • New Living Translation (NLT)

The Birth of Ishmael
16 Now Sarai, Abram’s wife, had not been able to bear children for him. But she had an Egyptian servant named Hagar. 2 So Sarai said to Abram, “The Lord has prevented me from having children. Go and sleep with my servant. Perhaps I can have children through her.” And Abram agreed with Sarai’s proposal. 3 So Sarai, Abram’s wife, took Hagar the Egyptian servant and gave her to Abram as a wife. (This happened ten years after Abram had settled in the land of Canaan.)

4 So Abram had sexual relations with Hagar, and she became pregnant. But when Hagar knew she was pregnant, she began to treat her mistress, Sarai, with contempt. 5 Then Sarai said to Abram, “This is all your fault! I put my servant into your arms, but now that she’s pregnant she treats me with contempt. The Lord will show who’s wrong—you or me!”

6 Abram replied, “Look, she is your servant, so deal with her as you see fit.” Then Sarai treated Hagar so harshly that she finally ran away.

7 The angel of the Lord found Hagar beside a spring of water in the wilderness, along the road to Shur. 8 The angel said to her, “Hagar, Sarai’s servant, where have you come from, and where are you going?”

“I’m running away from my mistress, Sarai,” she replied.

9 The angel of the Lord said to her, “Return to your mistress, and submit to her authority.” 10 Then he added, “I will give you more descendants than you can count.”

11 And the angel also said, “You are now pregnant and will give birth to a son. You are to name him Ishmael (which means ‘God hears’), for the Lord has heard your cry of distress. 12 This son of yours will be a wild man, as untamed as a wild donkey! He will raise his fist against everyone, and everyone will be against him. Yes, he will live in open hostility against all his relatives.”

13 Thereafter, Hagar used another name to refer to the Lord, who had spoken to her. She said, “You are the God who sees me.”[a] She also said, “Have I truly seen the One who sees me?” 14 So that well was named Beer-lahai-roi (which means “well of the Living One who sees me”). It can still be found between Kadesh and Bered.

15 So Hagar gave Abram a son, and Abram named him Ishmael.

Footnotes:
16:13 Hebrew El-roi.

In the Holy Bible—Hagar was to submit to Sarai... God told Hagar that her son would be a wild man, as untamed as a wild donkey! He will raise his fist against everyone, and everyone will be against him. Yes, he will live in open hostility against all his relatives” (Genesis 16:12)...THINK about ISIS today!

God also changed the name of Abram to Abraham and Saria to Sarah (Genesis 17:1-17). God told Abram that He would confirm His promise with Isaac. Abraham pleaded with God to give His blessing to Ishamel, but God reserved the land for Isaac—and told Abram that He would also bless Ishmael as the father of 12 princely tribes (Genesis 17:17-27). 

Genesis 25:12-18 • New Living Translation (NLT)

Ishmael’s Descendants
12 This is the account of the family of Ishmael, the son of Abraham through Hagar, Sarah’s Egyptian servant. 13 Here is a list, by their names and clans, of Ishmael’s descendants: The oldest was Nebaioth, followed by Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam, 14 Mishma, Dumah, Massa, 15 Hadad, Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah. 16 These twelve sons of Ishmael became the founders of twelve tribes named after them, listed according to the places they settled and camped. 17 Ishmael lived for 137 years. Then he breathed his last and joined his ancestors in death. 18 Ishmael’s descendants occupied the region from Havilah to Shur, which is east of Egypt in the direction of Asshur. 
There they lived in open hostility toward all their relatives.


Emblem of the City of Asshur (Al Daiyara, northern Iraq) the original capital of Assyria, a country prior to 606 B. C. centered in the Tigris river valley.

Ishmael's 12 PRINCE Tribes became the apostate sons of Abraham that no longer worshipped the same God that Ishmael's mother, Hagar worshipped—the God of creation.

The winged disc has a long history in the art and culture of the ancient Near and Middle East. Historically, the symbol is influenced by the "winged sun" hieroglyph appearing on Bronze Age royal seals (Luwian SOL SUUS, symbolizing royal power in particular). In Neo-Assyrian times, a human bust is added to the disk, the "feather-robed archer" interpreted as symbolizing Ashur (Asshur / Nimrod), the second son of Shem, the son of Noah. Ashur's brothers were Elam, Arphaxad, Lud, and Aram.

Genesis 10:8-12 • New Living Translation (NLT)

8 Cush was also the ancestor of Nimrod, who was the first heroic warrior on earth. 9 Since he was the greatest hunter in the world, his name became proverbial. People would say, “This man is like Nimrod, the greatest hunter in the world.” 10 He built his kingdom in the land of Babylonia, with the cities of Babylon, Erech, Akkad, and Calneh. 11 From there he expanded his territory to Assyria, building the cities of Nineveh, Rehoboth-ir, Calah, 12 and Resen 
(the great city located between Nineveh and Calah).

Because the symbol first appears on royal inscriptions, it is also thought to represent the 'divine royal glory' (Khvarenah). NOTE: Horus is one of the oldest and most significant deities in ancient Egyptian religion, who was worshipped from at least the late Predynastic period through to Greco-Roman times. Horus was most often depicted as a falcon, or as a man with a falcon head, and was the protector of Emperors.



The Supreme Court of Israel has the Egyptian-type pyramid and "ALL-SEEING EYE" of the god Horus—protector of the pharaohs.

The Supreme Court of Israel (today's Sanhedrin) is the highest court in Israel. It has ultimate appellate jurisdiction over all other courts and, in some cases, original jurisdiction. The Supreme Court building was built by the Rothschild family and banking dynasty of England—descendants of Lord Rothschild.

The Balfour Declaration (dated 2 November 1917) was a letter from the United Kingdom's Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour to Lord Walter Rothschild, 2nd Baron Rothschild, a leader of the British Jewish community, for transmission to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland. "His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country."[4]

The text of the letter was published in the press one week later, on 9 November 1917.[5] The "Balfour Declaration" was later incorporated into both the Sèvres peace treaty with the Ottoman Empire, and the British Mandate for Palestine. The original document is kept at the British Library.

The London Society for Promoting Christianity Amongst the Jews—and British and Irish Zionists of the early 1900s thought that bringing the Hebrew people back to the Holy Land would bring about the Millennium—Yeshua—the Messiah's 1,000 year reign on earth. However, they forgot about the prophecy of the prophet Ezekiel and the fact that only the priests of the family of Zadok will serve in the Millennial Temple (Ezekiel 44:15).

"HEBREW-ARAB-SYRIAN-EGYPTIAN CONFLICT" GOING BY CONFUSING CHRISTIANS, JEWS AND ARABS.

The "Daughters of Allah" (Sin, the moon god of Babylon)

Notice Pope John Paul II wearing a Mitre with a sunburst embossed on it.

THE RAYS OF SHAMASH:

The Assyro-Babylonian sun god, Shamash (or Utu in ancient Summeria), was often depicted by a 4-pointed star-like symbol with wavy lines emanating from between four protruding lobes. 'Floating' in the free space of the middle of the symbol is a heavy dot or circle separate from the rest of the icon. All this was typically circumscribed by a thick outer circle.


Marduk (Sumerian spelling in Akkadian: AMAR.UTU  "solar calf"; Greek Mardochaios) was a late-generation god from ancient Mesopotamia and patron deity of the city of Babylon. When Babylon became the political center of the Euphrates valley in the time of Hammurabi (18th century BC), he slowly started to rise to the position of the head of the Babylonian pantheon, a position he fully acquired by the second half of the second millennium BC. In the perfected system of astrology, the planet Jupiter was associated with Marduk by the Hammurabi period. The only serious rival to Marduk after ca. 1750 BC was the god Aššur (Ashur) (who had been the supreme deity in the northern Mesopotamian state of Assyria since the 25th century BC) which was the dominant power in the region between the 14th to the late 7th century BC. In the south, Marduk reigned supreme. He is normally referred to as Bel "Lord", also bel rabim "great lord", bêl bêlim "lord of lords", ab-kal ilâni bêl terêti "leader of the gods", aklu bêl terieti "the wise, lord of oracles", muballit mîte "reviver of the dead", etc. There are particularly two gods—Ea and Enlil—whose powers and attributes pass over to Marduk.

Together with Nannar–Sin and Ishtar, Shamash completes another triad by the side of Anu, Enlil and Ea (MARDUK). Sin, Shamash and Ishtar symbolize: the moon, the sun, and earth, respectively.

The Cult of the Mithras or Mithraic Mysteries were a mystery religion practiced in the Roman Empire from about the 1st to 4th centuries AD.

Mithraism became the Roman Catholic religion to try and supplant the underground Christian movement of Jesus Christ's followers.

THE VATICAN SUN AND MUSLIM MOON WORSHIP

The Vatican library has over 75K manuscripts and 1.1 million printed books—many on Pagan cult worship. Mithras or Mica, a Persian then Roman sun god.The Roman Mithras wore a Phrygian cap. Phrygia was in the Persian empire for 200 years. Modern scholars have traced Mithras in Persian to Indian and Roman mythology. Mithra also denotes Maitreya (a future Buddha of this world in Buddhist eschatology). Notice the crescent moon cradle within the sun shaped monstrance (above). This is where they place the mythical "communion wafer" for priests to parade it before people, so they can worship the sun goddess and moon god. Notice the "Virgin Mary” clothed with the sun, and the Islamic scimitar (sword) crescent moon under her feet" (above).


THE HUMAN PLAN FOR "ISRAEL" BACK-FIRED



The United Nations has permitted Palestine National Authority (PLO) to call itself, "Palestine"
I rebuke them in the name of the Lord

No where in the Holy Bible will you find the Roman creation of the name, "Palestine."

The United Nations has permitted Palestine to title its representative office to the UN as 'The Permanent Observer Mission of the State of Palestine to the United Nations' (the same status as the Vatican's Holy See), and Palestine has started to re-title its name accordingly on postal stamps, official documents and passports, whilst it has instructed its diplomats to officially represent 'The State of Palestine', as opposed to the 'Palestine National Authority' (PNA). Additionally, on 17 December 2012, UN Chief of Protocol Yeocheol Yoon decided that "the designation of 'State of Palestine' shall be used by the Secretariat in all official United Nations documents."


The original allotment for Israel was 45,560 square miles, under the British Mandate for Palestine, under the League of Nations was an area slightly smaller than the state of Pennsylvania. In 1921, to appease the Arabs, the British arbitrarily gave King Abdullah I of Saudi Arabian 77 percent of the territory (35,125 square miles) that had been set aside for the Jewish people.

Two years after WWII ended, the borders of the Jewish national homeland shrunk even further

On November 29, 1947, the United Nations General Assembly decided to partition the remaining 23 percent (28,166 square miles) of the Mandated Jewish homeland into three parcels...

Israel received the barren, largely uninhabitable Negev and two other parcels of land, for a total 5,500 square miles. The future State of Israel had shrunk to a sliver of territory---only 11 percent of the land the League of Nations had mandated it to have. The rest all went to the Arabs.

Isaiah the prophet wrote that all the glory of Kedar will come to an end (Isaiah 21:16). 

Kedar may refer to: Qedar or Kedar, the second son of Ishmael; Qedarites or Kedar, an Arab tribal confederation named for Ishmael's son; Kedar, Gush Etzion, an Israeli settlement east of Jerusalem near Maale Adumim; Lord Shiva or Kedar, a Hindu god. In 1948, the Vatican created the office of Apostolic Delegate to Jerusalem and Palestine, which had jurisdiction in British Mandate Palestine, Transjordan (now Jordan) and Cyprus

The Vatican has had a bilateral agreement with the Palestine Authority and PLO since February 15, 2000. UN resolutions 181 and 194 call for 'Corpus Separatum" and an “International Regime” to take control of the proposed International City in Jerusalem (READ: 2 Thessalonians 2).

The UN/Vatican sponsored Tony Blair Faith Foundation and Faith and Globalization Initiative are the New World Order arm of Babylon the Great, and today's Babylon is modern day Iraq--where the United States' largest embassy in the world is located. I am not against Muslims, because I know that the creation of the Islamic religion is as confusing to Muslims about the warmongering of the prophet Muhammad as it is to Jews and Christians.

The largest U.S. Embassy in the world is in Baghdad, Iraq (ancient Babylon)

Once the Jews went into captivity in Babylon for their disobedience to God, the Jews that remained in the land of Canaan God scattered around the world. 

God made the Jews that were scattered around the world the object of damnation, horror, contempt, and mockery for their refusal to obey the Lord (Jeremiah 29:15-19).


Jeremiah 29:15-19 • New Living Translation (NLT)
15 You claim that the Lord has raised up prophets for you in Babylon. 16 But this is what the Lord says about the king who sits on David’s throne and all those still living here in Jerusalem—your relatives who were not exiled to Babylon. 17 This is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies says: “I will send war, famine, and disease upon them and make them like bad figs, too rotten to eat. 18 Yes, I will pursue them with war, famine, and disease, and I will scatter them around the world. In every nation where I send them, I will make them an object of damnation, horror, contempt, and mockery. 19 For they refuse to listen to me, though I have spoken to them repeatedly through the prophets I sent. And you who are in exile have not listened either,” says the Lord.

In ancient Babylon, the Jews that were in captivity were to stay, build homes, plant gardens and marry and multiply
(Jeremiah 29:4-7). However in the future spiritual and demonic BABYLON THE GREAT, God's people (both Jew and Gentile) are to leave Babylon the Great and its political and prostitute religion (Revelation 18:1-4).


Jeremiah 29:4-7 • New Living Translation (NLT)
4 This is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, the God of Israel, says to all the captives he has exiled to Babylon from Jerusalem: 5 “Build homes, and plan to stay. Plant gardens, and eat the food they produce. 6 Marry and have children. Then find spouses for them so that you may have many grandchildren. Multiply! Do not dwindle away! 7 And work for the peace and prosperity of the city where I sent you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, for its welfare will determine your welfare.”

Revelation 17:1-5 • New Living Translation (NLT)

THE GREAT PROSTITUTE RELIGION
17 One of the seven angels who had poured out the seven bowls came over and spoke to me. “Come with me,” he said, “and I will show you the judgment that is going to come on the great prostitute, who rules over many waters. 2 The kings of the world have committed adultery with her, and the people who belong to this world have been made drunk by the wine of her immorality.”

3 So the angel took me in the Spirit[a] into the wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that had seven heads and ten horns, and blasphemies against God were written all over it. 4 The woman wore purple and scarlet clothing and beautiful jewelry made of gold and precious gems and pearls. In her hand she held a gold goblet full of obscenities and the impurities of her immorality. 5 A mysterious name was written on her forehead: “Babylon the Great, Mother of All Prostitutes and Obscenities in the World.

Revelation 18:1-4 • New Living Translation (NLT)

The Fall of Babylon
18 After all this I saw another angel come down from heaven with great authority, and the earth grew bright with his splendor. 2 He gave a mighty shout:

“Babylon is fallen—that great city is fallen!
    She has become a home for demons.
She is a hideout for every foul[a] spirit,
    a hideout for every foul vulture
    and every foul and dreadful animal.[b]
3 For all the nations have fallen[c]
    because of the wine of her passionate immorality.
The kings of the world
    have committed adultery with her.
Because of her desires for extravagant luxury,
    the merchants of the world have grown rich.”
4 Then I heard another voice calling from heaven,

“Come away from her, my people.
    Do not take part in her sins,
    or you will be punished with her.

REGARDING PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST
United Nations Security Council

1 Thessalonians 5:3-8 (ESV)
3 While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 4 But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief. 5 For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. 6 So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, are drunk at night. 8 But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation.

Matthew 24:4-8 • New Living Translation (NLT)
4 Jesus told them, “Don’t let anyone mislead you, 5 for many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah.’ They will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately. 7 Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world. 8 But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.

1 Thessalonians 5:9-11(ESV)
9 For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. 11 Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.

No where in the Holy Bible will you find the Roman creation of the name, "Palestine."

In ancient Roman religion, the Capitoline Triad (Jupiter, Juno and Minerva) were honored in temples known as Capitolia on Rome's Capitoline Hill. Roman Emperor Hadrian, renamed Jerusalem, Aelia Capitolina (Capitol Hill ) on the site of King Solomon's Temple (that was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD)---leading in part to the Jewish Bar Kokhba revolt of 132 AD. Under Hadrian, the Aeila (Aelian) name became celebrated throughout the Roman Empire. It was the name of the emperor Hadrian, and consequently of the Antonines, whom he adopted. The Nerva–Antonine dynasty was a dynasty of seven Roman Emperors who ruled over the Roman Empire from 96 AD to 192 AD. These Emperors are Nerva, Trajan, Hadrian, Antoninus Pius, Marcus Aurelius, Lucius Verus, and Commodus. The first five of the six successions within this dynasty were notable in that the reigning Emperor adopted the candidate of his choice to be his successor

Roman Emperor Hadrian kicked all the Jews out of Judea-Samaria in 135 AD, and renamed the region, "Syria Palestine" after the pagan Philistines. The Jewish Bar Kokhba revolt, which took the Romans three years to suppress, enraged Hadrian, and he came to be determined to erase Judaism from the province. Circumcision was forbidden, and Jews (formally all circumcised men) were banned from entering the city on pain of death.

1 Timothy 5:19-20 • New Living Translation (NLT)
19 Do not listen to an accusation against an elder unless it is confirmed by two or three witnesses. 20 Those who sin should be reprimanded in front of the whole church; this will serve as a strong warning to others.

No where in the Holy Bible will you find the Roman creation of the name, "Palestine."


Who is the Israel of God Now? 

The Allegory of Sarai and Hagar (Galatians 4:21-31)—Abram's irresponsibility towards Hagar (Genesis 16:4-6)—and later Joseph unfairly enslaving the Egyptians (Genesis 47:13-21, 23-25)—does not merely provide a possible reason for the later enslavement of the Israelites in Egypt—it also serves as the Biblical plot, which brings the Israelites to Egypt in the first place.

Were it not for the famine and Joseph’s position of power, the sons of Jacob would have grown into a nation in Canaan, not in Egypt.

Deuteronomy 26:5 • New King James Version (NKJV)
5 And you shall answer and say before the Lord your God: ‘My father was a Syrian,[a] about to perish, and he went down to Egypt and dwelt there, few in number; and there he became a nation, great, mighty, and populous.

Footnotes:
Deuteronomy 26:5 Or Aramean

The Hebrew people did not become "Israelites" until God changed Jacob's name—'saying, "Your name is Jacob, but you will not be called Jacob any longer. From now on your name will be Israel'" (Genesis 35:10). So, the Hebrew people descended from Arabs in Babylon (modern day Iraq), Syria and Egypt, and later became "Israelites."

God made the Jews that were scattered around the world the object of damnation, horror, contempt, and mockery for their refusal to obey the Lord (Jeremiah 29:15-19).


IRAQIS AND SYRIANS WOULD HAVE THE CLOSET CLAIM TO BE CALLED "JEWS"

Bashar Hafez al-Assad, president of Syria and Maliki (2007).
Nouri Kamil Mohammed Hasan al-Maliki, also known as Jawad al-Maliki or Abu Esraa, is an Iraqi politician who was Prime Minister of Iraq from 2006 to 2014.
Deuteronomy 26:5 (NLT)
“You must then say in the presence of the Lord your God, ‘My ancestor Jacob was a wandering Aramean [Syrian] who went to live as a foreigner in Egypt. His family arrived few in number, but in Egypt they became a large and mighty nation.

The Holy Bible informs Christians not to argue useless genealogies (1 Timothy 1:4; Titus 3:9). However, if you want to argue against Deuteronomy 26:5, and the fact that the birthright of true Jews are Syrians and Iraqis (Abraham from Ur in ancient Babylon—modern day Iraq), the secular law of British North America and the United States changed to make the mother the lineage of the child. The Assads are originally from Qardaha, just east of Latakia in north-west Syria. They are members of the minority Alawite sect and belong to the Kalbiyya tribe. The family name Assad goes back to 1927, when Ali Sulayman (1875–1963) changed his last name to al Assad, which means "the lion" in Arabic. The Alawite sect follow a branch of the Twelver school of Shia Islam, but with syncretistic elements. Therefore under the secular Latin law of "Partus sequitur ventrem" below, Jacob the Hebrew patriarch is truly Syrian after his mother Rebekah (the sister of the Syrian Arab Laban) and of Iraqi lineage from his grandmother, Sarai, the wife of the Iraqi (from Ur in ancient Babylon) Abraham—Jacob the Syrian is also Iraqi both on his grandfather and grandmother's side! 


U.S. EX-INTELLIGENCE CHIEF SAYS WASHINGTON WILLFULLY ALLOWED ISIS TO RISE

U.S. Lieutenant General Michael Flynn
The US didn’t interfere with the rise of anti-government jihadist groups in Syria that finally degenerated into Islamic State, claims the former head of America’s Defense Intelligence Agency, backing a secret 2012 memo predicting their rise. An interview with retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), given to Al Jazeera’s Mehdi Hasan, confirms earlier suspicions that Washington was monitoring Islamic jihadist groups emerging as opposition in Syria.

The report warns of “dire consequences” of this scenario, because it would allow Al-Qaeda to regain its positions in Iraq and unify the jihadist Sunni forces in Iraq, Syria and the rest of the Sunnis in the Arab world against all other Muslim minorities they consider dissenters--such as the Assad regime.

THE HASHEMITE DYNASTY, HAMAS-FATAH AND COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS' MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD ARE ALL SUNNIS AND SUFIS. The Sunni Sufis are the esoteric mystics and eastern parent of Freemasonry (Ancient Arabic Order Nobles Mystic Shrine aka Shriners and The Boule (Ancient Egyptian Arabic Order Nobles Mystic Shrine aka Prince Hall Black Freemasons), all belong to the The ROUNDTABLE Group and Club of ROME/RAND











God told Hagar that her son would be a wild man, as untamed as a wild donkey! He will raise his fist against everyone, and everyone will be against him. Yes, he will live in open hostility against all his relatives” (Genesis 16:12)...ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syrai) today!

Sulayman Ali al-Assad (1875 – 1963), leader of the Alawites in Latakia and was an opposition figure to the British Mandate for "Palestine" and French occupation in the French Mandate for Syria and Lebanon. He was the father of Syrian President Hafez al-Assad.

General Flynn dismissed Al Jazeera’s supposition that the US administration “turned a blind eye” to the DIA’s analysis. Flynn believes the US government didn’t listen to his agency on purpose. “I think it was a decision. I think it was a willful decision,” the former DIA chief said.

DO NOT SURRENDER TO THE VATICAN, JESUITS, EU AND BRITISH

In 1958 Democratic Senator Stuart Symington accused the RAND (Pontifical Academy of Science aka Club of Rome) of defeatism for studying how the United States might strategically surrender to an enemy power. This led to the passage of a prohibition on the spending of tax dollars on the study of defeat or surrender of any kind. In any case, research continued, except RAND carefully avoided using the word "surrender."

RAND Corporation is currently financed by the U.S. CORPORATION in DC and private endowments, private individuals, and universities like the Jesuit’s Georgetown University.

RAND Corporation (Research ANd Development) first formed to offer research and analysis to the United States armed forces by Douglas Aircraft Company. Its most visible contribution may be the doctrine of nuclear deterrence by mutually assured destruction (MAD), developed under the guidance of then-Defense Secretary Robert McNamara and based upon their work with game theory. Chief strategist Herman Kahn also posited the idea of a "winnable" nuclear exchange in his book “On Thermonuclear War.” VATICAN II (1958 to 1965) and the Pontifical Academy of Science (CLUB OF ROME/RAND) created a global psychological war against Evangelical Bible-believing Christians.


Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu and Pope Francis
No where in the Holy Bible will you find the Roman creation of the name, "Palestine."

1 Timothy 1:3-4 (NIV)
Timothy Charged to Oppose False Teachers
3 As I urged you when I went into Macedonia, stay there in Ephesus so that you may command certain people not to teach false doctrines any longer 4 or to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies. 
Such things promote controversial speculations rather than advancing God’s work—which is by faith.

Partus sequitur ventrem, often abbreviated to partus, in the British North American colonies and later in the United States, was a legal doctrine which the English royal colonies incorporated in legislation related to definitions of slavery. It was derived from the Roman civil law; it held that the slave status of a child followed that of his or her mother. It was widely adopted into the laws of slavery in the colonies and the following United States. The Latin phrase literally means "that which is brought forth follows the womb."



Founded in October 1913 by the Anti Defamation League (ADL) aka The Independent Order of B'nai B'rith, is a Jewish service organization in the United States. Its original mission statement was "to stop, by appeals to reason and conscience and, if necessary, by appeals to law, the defamation of the Jew-ish people (Revelation 2:9; Revelation 3:9). However you can trust the Holy Bible that the ancient Israelites descended from first Babylon (Ur modern-day Iraq) and Syria and became a great nation in Egypt (Deuteronomy 26:5).

In fact, Jesus Christ's disciples and believers who converted were first called Christians in Antioch, Syria.


Acts 11:25-26 (NIV)
25 Then Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul [the Apostle Paul], 26 and when he found him, he brought him to Antioch. So for a whole year Barnabas and Saul met with the church and taught great numbers of people. The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch.



Daniel 11:32-35 (NLT)
32 He [the final world antichrist] will flatter and win over those who have violated the covenant. But the people who know their God will be strong and will resist him.

33 “Wise leaders will give instruction to many, but these teachers will die by fire and sword, or they will be jailed and robbed. 34 During these persecutions, little help will arrive, and many who join them will not be sincere. 35 And some of the wise will fall victim to persecution. In this way, they will be refined and cleansed and made pure until the time of the end, for the appointed time is still to come.

Daniel 11:40-42 (NLT)
40 “Then at the time of the end, the king of the south will attack the king of the north. The king of the north will storm out with chariots, charioteers, and a vast navy. He will invade various lands and sweep through them like a flood. 41 He will enter the glorious land of Israel, and many nations will fall, but Moab, Edom, and the best part of Ammon [the capital and most populous city of Jordan] will escape. 42 He will conquer many countries, and even Egypt will not escape.

An Edomite prince named Hadad escaped and fled to Egypt, and after King David's death returned and tried to start a rebellion, but failed and went to Syria (Aramea). From that time Edom remained a vassal of Israel. King David placed over the Edomites Israelite governors or prefects, and this form of government seems to have continued under Solomon. When Israel divided into two kingdoms, Edom (the descendants of Jacob's brother, Esau) became a dependency of the Kingdom of Judah (the Truth and "Lion of Judah," Christ).

Jacob died in Egypt!

Genesis 50:1-11 • New Living Translation (NLT)
50 Joseph threw himself on his father and wept over him and kissed him. 2 Then Joseph told the physicians who served him to embalm his father’s body; so Jacob[a] was embalmed. 3 The embalming process took the usual forty days. And the Egyptians mourned his death for seventy days.

4 When the period of mourning was over, Joseph approached Pharaoh’s advisers and said, “Please do me this favor and speak to Pharaoh on my behalf. 5 Tell him that my father made me swear an oath. He said to me, ‘Listen, I am about to die. Take my body back to the land of Canaan, and bury me in the tomb I prepared for myself.’ So please allow me to go and bury my father. After his burial, I will return without delay.”

6 Pharaoh agreed to Joseph’s request. “Go and bury your father, as he made you promise,” he said. 7 So Joseph went up to bury his father. He was accompanied by all of Pharaoh’s officials, all the senior members of Pharaoh’s household, and all the senior officers of Egypt. 8 Joseph also took his entire household and his brothers and their households. But they left their little children and flocks and herds in the land of Goshen. 9 A great number of chariots and charioteers accompanied Joseph.

10 When they arrived at the threshing floor of Atad, near the Jordan River, they held a very great and solemn memorial service, with a seven-day period of mourning for Joseph’s father. 11 The local residents, the Canaanites, watched them mourning at the threshing floor of Atad. Then they renamed that place (which is near the Jordan) Abel-mizraim,[b] for they said, “This is a place of deep mourning for these Egyptians.”

Footnotes:
a. 50:2 Hebrew Israel. See note on 35:21.
b. 50:11 Abel-mizraim means “mourning of the Egyptians.”


After the death of Joseph, his father Jacob, and his brothers—the original 12 tribes of Israel—the Egyptian Pharaoh knew nothing of Joseph, his father and brothers (Exodus 1:1-12). MOSES WARNED THE PEOPLE OVER AND OVER ABOUT DISOBEYING GOD (Deuteronomy 11-Deuteronomy 30).


Deuteronomy 11:26-29 • New Living Translation (NLT)
26 “Look, today I am giving you the choice between a blessing and a curse! 27 You will be blessed if you obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today. 28 But you will be cursed if you reject the commands of the Lord your God and turn away from him and worship gods you have not known before. 29 “When the Lord your God brings you into the land and helps you take possession of it, you must pronounce the blessing at Mount Gerizim and the curse at Mount Ebal. 

Deuteronomy 30:15-19 • New Living Translation (NLT)
15 “Now listen! Today I am giving you a choice between life and death, between prosperity and disaster. 16 For I command you this day to love the Lord your God and to keep his commands, decrees, and regulations by walking in his ways. If you do this, you will live and multiply, and the Lord your God will bless you and the land you are about to enter and occupy.

17 “But if your heart turns away and you refuse to listen, and if you are drawn away to serve and worship other gods, 18 then I warn you now that you will certainly be destroyed. You will not live a long, good life in the land you are crossing the Jordan to occupy. 19 “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!

The Apostle Paul states in Galatians 6:16; "that there is the Israel of God—and in 1 Corinthians 10:18, Paul speaks of the Israel after the flesh. The Israel of the flesh are those that are Jews by birth and the "Israel of God" is anyone who belongs to Christ and is under the New Covenant.

The majority of Christians fail to understand the simple truth that if we are Christ’s, then we are the Spiritual Israel of God.

Genesis 25:1-6 • New Living Translation (NLT)

Abraham's Other Arab Sons
25 Abraham married another wife, whose name was Keturah. 2 She gave birth to Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah. 3 Jokshan was the father of Sheba and Dedan. Dedan’s descendants were the Asshurites, Letushites, and Leummites. 4 Midian’s sons were Ephah, Epher, Hanoch, Abida, and Eldaah. These were all descendants of Abraham through Keturah.

5 Abraham gave everything he owned to his son Isaac. 6 But before he died, he gave gifts to the sons of his concubines and sent them off to a land in the east, away from Isaac.

NOTEKeturah's sons were said to have represented the Arab tribes who lived south and east of Canaan.[6] According to the African writer Olaudah Equiano, the 18th-century English theologian John Gill believed the African people were descended from Abraham via Keturah.[7]

Note in the following passage that the Apostle Paul speaks of two Israels in the book of Romans—and declares that the literal seed of Abraham is no longer the Israel of God today.

Romans 9:6-8 • New Living Translation (NLT)
6 Well then, has God failed to fulfill his promise to Israel? No, for not all who are born into the nation of Israel are truly members of God’s people! 7 Being descendants of Abraham doesn’t make them truly Abraham’s children. For the Scriptures say, “Isaac is the son through whom your descendants will be counted,”[a] though Abraham had other children, too. 8 This means that Abraham’s physical descendants are not necessarily children of God. Only the children of the promise are considered to be Abraham’s children.

Footnotes:
9:7 Genesis 21:12.


So who are the children of the promise now? 

Galatians 3:28-29 explains this in a manner that cannot possibly be misunderstood and Romans 2:28-29 is also very clear. 

Galatians 3:28-29 • New Living Translation (NLT)
28 There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true children[b] of Abraham. You are his heirs, and God’s promise to Abraham belongs to you.

Galatians 4:21-31 • New Living Translation (NLT)

Abraham’s Two Children
21 Tell me, you who want to live under the law, do you know what the law actually says? 22 The Scriptures say that Abraham had two sons, one from his slave wife and one from his freeborn wife.[a] 23 The son of the slave wife was born in a human attempt to bring about the fulfillment of God’s promise. But the son of the freeborn wife was born as God’s own fulfillment of his promise.

24 These two women serve as an illustration of God’s two covenants. The first woman, Hagar, represents Mount Sinai where people received the law that enslaved them. 25 And now Jerusalem is just like Mount Sinai in Arabia,[b] because she and her children live in slavery to the law. 26 But the other woman, Sarah, represents the heavenly Jerusalem. She is the free woman, and she is our mother. 27 As Isaiah said,

“Rejoice, O childless woman,
    you who have never given birth!
Break into a joyful shout,
    you who have never been in labor!
For the desolate woman now has more children
    than the woman who lives with her husband!”[c]
28 And you, dear brothers and sisters, are children of the promise, just like Isaac. 29 But you are now being persecuted by those who want you to keep the law, just as Ishmael, the child born by human effort, persecuted Isaac, the child born by the power of the Spirit.

30 But what do the Scriptures say about that? “Get rid of the slave and her son, for the son of the slave woman will not share the inheritance with the free woman’s son.”[d] 31 So, dear brothers and sisters, we are not children of the slave woman; we are children of the free woman.

Footnotes:
4:22 See Genesis 16:15; 21:2-3.
4:25 Greek And Hagar, which is Mount Sinai in Arabia, is now like Jerusalem; other manuscripts read And Mount Sinai in Arabia is now like Jerusalem.
4:27 Isaiah 54:1.

4:30 Genesis 21:10.

Romans 2:28-29 • New Living Translation (NLT)
28 For you are not a true Jew just because you were born of Jewish parents or because you have gone through the ceremony of circumcision. 29 No, a true Jew is one whose heart is right with God. And true circumcision is not merely obeying the letter of the law; rather, it is a change of heart produced by the Spirit. And a person with a changed heart seeks praise from God, 
not from people.


John 4:19-24 (NLT)
WORSHIP OF GOD MUST BE IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH

19 “Sir,” the woman said, “you must be a prophet. 20 So tell me, why is it that you Jews insist that Jerusalem is the only place of worship, while we Samaritans claim it is here at Mount Gerizim, where our ancestors worshiped?”

21 Jesus replied, “Believe me, dear woman, the time is coming when it will no longer matter whether you worship the Father on this mountain or in Jerusalem. 22 You Samaritans know very little about the one you worship, while we Jews know all about him, for salvation comes through the Jews. 23 But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way. 24 For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.”

Watch out for Jesus Christ's return (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 1 Thessalonians 5:3-4and Armageddon (Revelation 19-20 ). 

Thank God that He will eventually make ALL things new—God will live with His people, and they will be His people. God Himself will be with them. 4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain (Revelation 21).

Revelation 21:1-7 • New Living Translation (NLT)



The New Jerusalem
21 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared. And the sea was also gone. 2 And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.

3 I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them. 4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.”

5 And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.” 6 And he also said, “It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega—the Beginning and the End. To all who are thirsty I will give freely from the springs of the water of life. 
7 All who are victorious will inherit all these blessings, and I will be their God, and they will be my children.


PLEASE GET INTO A BIBLE-BASED CHURCH

If you have not formally accepted Jesus Christ, please accept the Gift of Salvation by saying this short prayer: "Dear Jesus, I repent of my sins and the original sin of mankind, please come into my heart and change me to trust in you and build my personal relationship with you by studying your word and applying it to my life to the best of my ability. Thank you for dying on the cross for the remission of sin. Thank you for conquering death with your resurrection. I accept you Jesus as my Lord and Savior, please lead me and guide me. Amen!" If you have said that short prayer, I welcome you to the True Body of Christ (not a sect, Protestant or Catholic denomination or Eastern religion).

Colossians 1:15-23 (NIV)

The Supremacy of the Son of God
15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him. 17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything He might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Him, 20 and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through His blood, shed on the cross.

21 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. 22 But now He has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in His sight, without blemish and free from accusation— 
23 if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the Gospel. This is the Gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.

Godspeed, love and Truth,

Brother David Johnson, XU

2 Corinthians 11:12-15 • New King James Version (NKJV)
12 But what I do, I will also continue to do, that I may cut off the opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to be regarded just as we are in the things of which they boast. 13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 
14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.
