  • Prayer Thread: ROCKETS FIRED AT ISRAEL FROM GAZA IN ESCALATION OF VIOLENCE

    Jerusalem Post ^ | Joel C. Rosenberg Updates
    BREAKING: It is 10:40am here in Israel and more than 400 rockets have been fired at Israel from Gaza in the last few hours more than on any other single day in history. The IDF is retaliating. Children and their parents have had to sleep in bomb shelters all night. More rockets are coming in as I write this. High risk of even further escalation. Please pray for calm to be restored. Pray, too, for all who are being traumatized on both sides to experience the supernatural comfort of the Lord.
  • Biblical prophecy COMES TRUE as live snake wriggles out of Israels Western Wall

    People visiting the famous Kotel this week filmed the serpent wriggling out from between the ancient stones. In the footage, the snake can be seen coming out of the wall after scaring off a pigeon that had been perched there. And it is reportedly a sign of the return of the Messiah. We are truly in the dangerous times that directly precede Mashiach (Messiah), Breaking News Israel reported, quoting a Hebrew blogger. Just as the pigeon is safe so long as it seeks shelter among the stones of the Temple Mount, the Jews are protected by the Torah commandments. When...
  • VP Pence Asking Messianic Rabbi to Pray at Rally Infuriates Jews, 'Offensive,' Some Say

    Vice President Pence's asking a Messianic Jewish rabbi to pray at a political rally in Detroit ignited a controversy this week, given the Saturday massacre of 11 Jews at a Pittsburgh synagogue. At a Monday rally for Republican Congressional candidate and Reform Jew Lena Epstein, who invited Loren Jacobs leader the Messianic Jewish Congregation Shema Yisrael in the Detroit area and is active in Jews for Jesus to pray in an apparent attempt to be ecumenical, the Messianic Jewish rabbi prayed openly in "Yeshua's name," which is Jesus in Hebrew and referred to Jesus as the "Messiah" while...

    Theres nothing he can do. Massacres like the one that unfolded at a Pittsburgh synagogue have little to do with lax gun laws and are even tougher when you're the President of the United States and you have to watch this kind of a thing happen, President Trump said Saturday afternoon. Trump painted himself as a helpless observer unable to prevent such tragedies, despite being the leader of the free world. For me, as President, to watch any of this go, you know, before I ran for office, I'd watch incidents like this with churches and other things and think,...

    At least one quarter of the Bible consists of prophecy, much of which has been fulfilled, demonstrating the veracity of the scriptures and the unseen hand of our great Creator that inspired them. The Bible contains many mysteries, some of which result from the figurative language used in dreams and visions in prophecy. As indicated by the Reformers quoted in the following many prophecies remained mysteries, until the prophecy was fulfilled which could then be understood through hindsight, as in the examples that we will explore in these pages.

    The way I see it, the Democrat political party is made up of Socialists, sexual perverts, druggies, criminals, Muslims and clueless people who would circumvent our laws and try to destroy our Christian nation some just to have their fifteen minutes of supposed fame by burning and defecating on the American flag in public. Democrats are so determined to destroy the current administration that they will say or do anything to do so. Things have gotten so out of hand that Democrats will even disrupt Senator Cruzs meal at a restaurant or issue death threats against political opponents...

    Dream: A Short Hebrew Word Study on Hindsight With the year 2020 arriving in the not-so-distant future, I decided to look up the Hebrew word for hindsight. It's actually a phrase that literally means, "wisdom after the act": חכמה לאחר מעשה chokmah l'achar ma'aseh What's interesting is that the first letters spell chalam (חלם), the verb meaning to dream. It's the standard dictionary form, which is the 3rd person masc. sing. past tense: "He dreamed." Strong's Concordance H2492 Wiktionary Pealim He [Joseph] dreamed, saw ahead, envisioned the future... chalam - he dreamed (past tense) - is the abbreviation for hindsight....

    Moshiach ben Yosef CLAIM: The Rabbis believe in two messiahs, one exalted and one suffering. It’s not two messiahs one exalted and one suffering, but one messiah, first time suffering the second time exalted. https://jewsforjudaism.org/knowledge/articles/moshiach-ben-yosef/ Hmm, sounds familiar... That would be Moshiach ben Yosef and Moshiach ben David Who is the Moshiach ben Yosef? Let's take a look Joseph in Egypt (and Canaan) is one of my favorite stories, it's got it all, envy, jealousy, betrayal and on to vindication and redemption, a ripping good yarn. So let's compare some events in the lives of Joseph and Yeshua. Note: Joseph...
  • The Bible Described it as the Perfect, Pure Blue..for 2,000 Yrs, Everyone Forgot What it Looked Like

    The Los Angeles Times ^ | 8/10/18 | Noga Tarnopolsky
    Forty-nine times the Bible mentions a perfect, pure blue, a color so magnificent and transcendent that it was all but impossible to describe. Yet, for most of the last 2,000 years, nobody has known exactly what biblical blue called tekhelet in Hebrew actually looked like or how it could be re-created. At the time of the Second Temple, which towered above Jerusalem until it was destroyed by the Romans, a blue dye of the same name was used to color the fabric used in the clothing of the high priests. Jewish men are still commanded to use a...

    The Hebrew word for brother, ach, is spelled alef chet: אח alef = 1; chet = 8 A parallel appears in the octave of a musical scale. The 1st and the 8th are the same note, the 8th being one level higher. C4 and C5. An octave is comprised of 7 differently named notes, but is not complete (resolved) unless the 8th is included (played). In the fixed-do system, do re mi fa sol la ti do are fixed names of the notes in the key of C. Here is a chart with the Hebrew names and their corresponding letters...

  • The Birth of Jesus and the Day of Trumpets... Jesus Born on September 11th

    09/10/2018 10:03:09 PM PDT · by Sontagged · 118 replies
    The historical evidence I have presented in this book shows that Jesus was born in the year 3 B.C.E. It appears most probable that a late summer birth in 3 B.C.E. has the best credentials. I need not rehearse my reasons for this, but they are very strong. Indeed, the evidence from the priestly courses alone suggests that a September nativity is the most likely. This gives a pretty close approximation that most scholars would probably accept as reasonable. But now, we come to the nitty-gritty! To propose an early evening birth on September 11, 3 B.C.E. appears almost impossible...

    Why Isn’t G-d’s Name Mentioned in the Megillah?Compare the story of Purim with that of our other holidays. Ever notice how the plot features no open miracles? No seas split, no mass revelation, no dwelling in clouds for forty years, and no overcoming an enemy a hundred times our size using guerrilla warfare. What did happen? A lot of people were in the right place at the right time to provide just the political clout necessary when needed. What a coincidence. Of course, the word “coincidence” is not part of the Jewish lexicon. All these events were deliberately orchestrated...

    1. Moses received the Torah from Sinai and gave it over to Joshua. Joshua gave it over to the Elders, the Elders to the Prophets, and the Prophets gave it over to the Men of the Great Assembly. They [the Men of the Great Assembly] would always say these three things: Be cautious in judgement. Establish many pupils. And make a safety fence around the Torah. 2. Shimon the Righteous was among the last surviving members of the Great assembly. He would say: The world stands on three things: Torah, the service of G‑d, and deeds of kindness. 3. Antignos...
