The Gregorian calendar (Pope Gregory, 1500's) June 6, 2009

--------------

 

We restore the calendar of God

 

 We are now in the 3rd month of God called Sivan, 12th day

 

 Esth. 8 [9] Then were the king's scribes called at that time in the third month, that is, the month Sivan

 

--------------

 

  We restore the Sabbath

 

Question: Why are we here today?

 

Answer: We were told to remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy

 

The 4th Commandment is a part of the covenant given to us at Mount Sinai in the 3rd month, Sivan

 

Ex. 20 [8] Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

 

[9] Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

 

[10] But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

 

[11] For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.

We restore the land God gave Israel back to Israel

 

Lev. 25 1] And the LORD spake unto Moses in mount Sinai, saying, [23] The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.

Topic: The big lie

 

Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Minister of Propaganda and Information, said that a big lie that is told often enough and long enough will eventually be accepted as truth.

With cooperation from the world's media, coupled with ignorance, apathy, and anti-Semitism among the nations, Israel is looked on today as problem that there is no peace. FALSE!

---------

In an article entitled, "The Lesson of Palestine," printed in the Middle East Journal , October 1949, Arab activist, Musa Alami, wrote, "how can people struggle for their nation, when most of them do not know the meaning of the word? The people are in great need of a "myth" of imagination. The myth of nationality would create "identity" and "self-respect."

The Myth of Palestine

----------------

We hear all around us in the news:

Be politically correct by calling Israel, Palestine, have a two state solution?

 

Some news:
Israel Today website - Headline News Thursday, June 04, 2009 Ryan Jones

Obama does not recognize Israel land claims, security needs.

In his much anticipated address to the Muslim world in Cairo on Thursday, US President Barack Obama said he does not recognize the legitimacy of any Israeli presence on the biblical lands of Judea and Samaria, and scolded the Jewish state for security measures he said are unnecessary and counterproductive.

In a speech in which he repeatedly referred to the Holy Koran and the many lessons of peace it holds for us, Obama appeared to paint Israels reluctance to surrender land for the establishment of a Palestinian Arab state as the sole remaining obstacle to ending the Israeli-Arab conflict.

The audience at Cairo University was silent as Obama began by recalling the Jews painful history, deriding anyone who would deny that history and reaffirming the Jewish peoples righteous quest for a homeland. They erupted in applause as he continued by equating that history and that quest to the suffering of the Palestinian Arabs and their own efforts to forge an independent state.

His listeners were left to believe that Obama views the Palestinian plight in the same light as the Nazi Holocaust, and sees little difference between the Nazi death camps and the Palestinian refugee camps. That the Palestinians situation has been brought on largely by their own violence, while the Jews did nothing to provoke the Nazis but be Jews, was conveniently glossed over.

Obama insisted that for peace to reign over the region, Israel must halt all settlement activity in the areas it has greatest historical claim to. He said America and the rest of the world will never recognize the legitimacy of those settlements.

The president scoffed at Israeli security measures imposed on those areas that have been surrendered to the Palestinians, saying they were only producing the opposite result. He was adamant that imposing a blockade on Gaza and manning checkpoints in Judea and Samaria cannot bring security to Israelis. He failed to address the rampant Palestinian terrorism that plagued Israeli cities before those measures were put in place.

Obama did take issue with Palestinian violence in general, but attempted to downplay it by saying very few participate in it or support those groups that do. His remarks ignored years of public opinion polls showing that the vast majority of Palestinians support violence against Israel and the most recent Palestinian legislative election in which Hamas won a landslide victory. A recent survey revealed Hamas will score an even bigger victory when Palestinians again go to the polls later this year.

Israelis were anxious prior to the speech, fearful that Obama was going to sacrifice Israel to bring reconciliation between America and the Muslim world. After watching the speech live on television, many were left feeling that is precisely what happened

...

What's wrong with this seemingly nice statement?

Too many tears have flowed. Too much blood has been shed. All of us have a responsibility to work for the day when the mothers of Israelis and Palestinians can see their children grow up without fear; when the Holy Land of three great faiths is the place of peace that God intended it to be; when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims, and a place for all of the children of Abraham to mingle peacefully together as in the story of Isra, when Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed (peace be upon them) joined in prayer.

Another big lie...

---------------

The Scripture never calls Arabs, Palestinians.

There is no language known as Palestinian.

There is no distinct Palestinian culture.

There has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians.

There is no provision in the scriptures for a two state solution

(No made up Palestinian state in Israel)

If we look into the scriptures, we will find no such promise. The scriptures promise of the land of Israel to the seed of Abraham.

Lev. 25 [1] And the LORD spake unto Moses in mount Sinai, saying,[23] The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine ; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.

Exod. 23 [32] Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods.[33] They shall not dwell in thy land , lest they make thee sin against me: for if thou serve their gods, it will surely be a snare unto thee.

Isa. 14 [25] That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders.

Jer. 2 [7] And I brought you into a plentiful country, to eat the fruit thereof and the goodness thereof; but when ye entered, ye defiled my land , and made mine heritage an abomination.

Jer. 16 [18] And first I will recompense their iniquity and their sin double; because they have defiled my land, they have filled mine inheritance with the carcases of their detestable and abominable things.

----------

If we take Scripture literally; then we must come to the conclusion that the nation of Israel is one country and that Judea and Samaria, known today as the West Bank, is part of Israel-deeded by God to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Josh. 1 [1] Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, saying,

[2] Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel.

[3] Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.

[4] From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast.

Read all of Lev. 25

Lev.25 :1 And the LORD spake unto Moses in mount Sinai, saying,

[23] The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.

 

Gen.12: [1] Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:

[2] And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:

[3] And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

[4] So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.

[5] And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.

[6] And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.

[7] And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.

Gen. 13: [14]

And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward:

[15] For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.

[16] And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.

[17] Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee.

[18] Then Abram removed his tent, and came and dwelt in the plain of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and built there an altar unto the LORD.

Gen. 24 [7]

The LORD God of heaven, which took me from my father's house, and from the land of my kindred, and which spake unto me, and that sware unto me, saying, Unto thy seed will I give this land ; he shall send his angel before thee, and thou shalt take a wife unto my son from thence.

Gen. 28 [13]

And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;

Gen. 35 [12]

And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land.

Exod. 33 [1]

And the LORD said unto Moses, Depart, and go up hence, thou and the people which thou hast brought up out of the land of Egypt, unto the land which I sware unto Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, Unto thy seed will I give it:

------------

This Land was not given to the Descendants of Ishmael, but rather to the Descendants of Isaac

Abraham, Sarah and Isaac / Sara'a maid Hagar the Egyptian and Ishmael

Gen. 17:18 And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before thee!
[19] And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.

[20] And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.

[21] But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.

Gen. 21 [9] And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham, mocking.

[10] Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son: for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac.

[11] And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight because of his son.

[12] And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called.

[13] And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation, because he is thy seed.

-------------

Rom. 9 [6] Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel:

[7] Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.

[8] That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.

------------

Gal. 4 [22] For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.

[23] But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.

[24] Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.

[25] For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.

[26] But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.

[27] For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.

[28] Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
[29] But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.
[30] Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.
[31] So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.

----------

Judaea and Samaria are never called the "west bank" in scripture

Judaea and Samaria are part of Israel

Acts.8

[1] And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles.

Acts.9

[8] But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

[31] Then had the churches rest throughout all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied.

Acts.15

[3] And being brought on their way by the church, they passed through Phenice and Samaria, declaring the conversion of the Gentiles: and they caused great joy unto all the brethren.

The Myth of Palestine Joseph Farar, Arab-American Journalist

How did Israel become Palestine and who are the Palestinians? The second Jewish war with the Romans took place in 132-135 CE. Led by Rabbi Akiva and Simon bar Kochba, the Jewish uprising was crushed by the Roman Emperor Hadrian who sought to de-Judaize Jerusalem and make it a pagan city. Hadrian renamed Jerusalem "Aelia Capitolina" in honor of Jupiter. He changed the name of Judea and gave it the name of the Jews ancient enemy, the Philistines. He called it -- Palestine.

Over time, Palestine was ruled by the Roman Byzantines (312-637) [Persian interrupt 614-629], Omayyad Arabs (638-750), Islamic Abbassid's (750-1099), Crusaders (1099-1291) [Saladin the Kurd interrupt 1187-93], Mamluks (1291-1516), Ottoman Turks (1517-1917), and the British Mandate (1917-1948). None of these rulers established a sovereign state in the Land and Jerusalem was never the capital of any empire since the time of King David. Palestine was a forgotten desolate, wasteland, but historical records show there was always a Jewish presence in the Land.

The revival of modern Jewish life in the Land began in the 1880's with the arrival of Russian refugees from the Russian pogroms. A second wave of immigration, also from Russia, was in 1905. This was followed by later immigrations resulting in a growing Jewish population in the Land. When the Jews came to the Land, they found a malaria infested swamp in the north and an uninhabitable desert in the south. It was as if the God of the Bible had kept the Land hidden away in obscurity until the rightful owners -- the Jews returned to claim it.

The Jewish pioneers did not steal the Land from the Arabs. They purchased the Land at highly inflated prices from absentee landlords living outside the Land. As the Jews worked the Land, it began to prosper. While there were Jews and Arabs living in the Land, there were many poor migrant Arab farm workers in the surrounding Arab countries who needed work. When they heard that the Land was prospering under the hand of the Jews, they migrated to Palestine to get work from the Jews. Furthermore, the British allowed many thousands of Arabs into Palestine illegally while barring the Jews from entering the Land. For the most part, the Arab Palestinians are these peasant farm workers and illegal aliens.

"Palestinians" have never been a distinct people, they have never had a sovereign land called Palestine, Jerusalem has never been their capital, there is no Palestinian language or culture, and there is no Palestinian people. It is a myth created after the Jews liberated Jerusalem in 1967.

Before the birth of the State of Israel, Arab leaders themselves denied the existence of an Arab country called Palestine. In 1937, Arab leader, Auni Bey Abdul-Hadi said, "There is no such country [as Palestine]! 'Palestine' is a term the Zionists invented! There is no Palestine in the Bible. 'Palestine" is alien to us; it is the Zionists who introduced it." In 1946, a distinguished Princeton professor and Arab historian said, "There is no such thing as Palestine in Arab history, absolutely not."
All who lived in the Land, Jews, Arabs, and Christians, were called Palestinians. In fact, the Jerusalem Post was called the Palestinian Post. Under the British Mandate, the Palestinian Jews were given a state. But before this state came into existence, Colonial Secretary, Winston Churchill, in 1922, took away seventy-seven percent of the geographic area promised to the Jews and created Transjordan as a state for the Palestinian Arabs. Israel would be for the Palestinian Jews and Transjordan (now Jordan) for the Palestinian Arabs.

Israel became a state in the War of Independence in 1948. At that time, approximately 600,000 Arabs fled to become refugee pawns in the hands of neighboring Arab states. Some number of Arabs stayed to become Israeli citizens. While we certainly sympathize with the plight of the Arab refugees, their problems could easily be solved if their Arab brothers cared enough to assimilate them as the Jews did their own 800,000 immigrants from the Arab countries.

The Myth of Palestine Joseph Farar, Arab-American Journalist, Dec. 2000

The 'Palestine' Fantasy

The truth is that 'Palestine' is no more real than Never-Never Land.

The first time the name was used was in 70 A.D. when the Romans committed genocide against the Jew, smashed the Temple and declared the land of Israel would be no more. From then on, the Romans promised, it would be known as Palestine. The name was derived from the Philistines, a Goliathian people conquered by the Jews centuries earlier. It was a way for the Romans to add insult to injury They also tried to change the name of Jerusalem to Aelia Capitolina, but that had even less staying power.

Palestine has never existed before or since as an autonomous entity. It was ruled alternately by Rome, by Islamic and Christian crusaders, by the Ottoman Empire and, briefly by the British after World War I. The British agreed to restore at least part of the land to the Jewish people as their homeland.

1) There is no language known as Palestinian.

2) There is no distinct Palestinian culture.

3) There has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians.

Palestinians are Arabs, indistinguishable from Jordanians (another recent invention), Syrians, Lebanese, Iraqis, etc. Keep in mind that the Arabs control 99.9 percent of the Middle East lands. Israel represents one-tenth of 1 percent of the landmass.

But that's too much for the Arabs. They want it all. And that is ultimately what the fighting in Israel is about today: Greed. Pride. Envy. Covetousness. No matter how many land concessions the Israelis make, it will never be enough.

What about 6/11/04? There are none in Jerusalem. Shocked? You should be. I don't expect you will ever hear this brutal truth from anyone else in the international media. It's just not 'politically correct'. I know what you're going to say: Farah, the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem represent Islam's third most holy sites. Not true. In fact, the Koran says nothing about Jerusalem. It mentions Mecca hundreds of times. It mentions Medina countless times. It never mentions Jerusalem. With good reason. There is no historical evidence to suggest Mohammed ever visited Jerusalem.

So how did Jerusalem become the third holiest site of Islam?
Muslims today cite a vague passage in the Koran, the seventeenth Sura, entitled The Night Journey. It relates that in a dream or a vision Mohammed was carried by night from the sacred temple to the temple that is most remote, whose precinct we have blessed, that we might show him our signs... In the seventh century some Muslims identified the two temples mentioned in this verse as being in Mecca and Jerusalem. And that is as close as Islam's connection with Jerusalem gets--myth, fantasy wishful thinking.

Meanwhile, Jews can trace their roots in Jerusalem back to the days of Abraham.

----------

In closing, make a stand for what is right.

Be alert of words spoken in the news media such as political correctness, agree to disagree, tolerance

Beware of Propaganda

occupied territory-by jews - (God gave the land to Israel and their seed)

say Palestinians (they are just Arabs)

say West Bank ( is Judea and Samaria)

say Gaza is for Palestinians (Gaza is part of the inheritance of the tribe of Judah)

Agree to give away God's land for false peace

Agree to disagree that Israel is the home of the Catholic, Protsetants and Islam

Be politically correct by calling Israel, Palestine

New for me - A U.S. president quoting the Koran (holy)

----------

Take heed

Mark 4 [24] And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.

Matt. 24 [4] And Yeshua answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

Luke 21 [8] And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Messiah; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.

Mark 8 [15] And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod. - Which is hypocrisy?
