There are very few Christians who are not intrigued by prophecies. And most Christians want to know for sure when Jesus is coming back. Any teaching on the coming of the "Antichrist" and the "mark of the beast" will draw great crowds, and people are buying books, audio cassettes and videos which deal with the end times.
The reality is that all of the people who have studied the end times prior to 1900 have come to the end of their lives on this planet, and they are now either in heaven or hell, including many who lived during the 20th century. Studies on end time prophecies should result in that person drawing closer to Christ and living a productive Christian life, not just chasing around from one end time seminar to another.
The apostles were people just like us. They wanted to know for sure when Jesus would return and set up his kingdom. You will find this written in Matthew 24. Let us look at the question and then the first response that Jesus gave to this question:
The World Government (WG) is no exception. In the current war against the Palestinian people in the Middle East, there is one thing the WG does not want, pictures of tanks firing into houses, crushing automobiles and dead civilians laying in the streets.
Something has to be sacrificed, and the number one spin program is diversion. Since the WG to a great degree controls the media in Europe and North America, it can easily create diversions.
The current crisis surrounding the Roman Catholic Church is not new, it has been around for a long time. But the WG protected the Catholic Church and the media did not investigate it. With recent events in Israel, the American people had to be distracted. The word was sent out, dig up all the dirt there is and blow up the pedophile crisis on television and in the printed media. Turn people’s attention away from the killing of Palestinians and instead let them discuss and be angry over the Roman Catholic Church cover up of the sodomy, rape and sexual immorality of her priests.
This in turn is forcing the Catholic Church to move into "DAMAGE CONTROL" and that is the reason that the Pope had to order all American cardinals to come to Rome for consultations. Rest assured that all the "spin doctors" employed by the Roman Catholic church are now hard at work, and I am sure that the Pope and his lackeys are cursing the WG for doing this to them.
THE JEWISH SPIN DOCTORS
A recent article in a Jewish publication stated the following:
In today’s world it is not enough to win a war on a battle field, it must also be won in the public relation arena. When civilians are massacred, the "spin doctors" must be able to convince the people in the world, that the massacre was just and that the outcome is good, not evil. The German Jew, Joseph Goebbels, Adolf Hitler’s propaganda minister, stated this:
In the same article in the Jewish publication from April 22, 2002, we can read the following:
THE NAKED TRUTH
No wonder that Jesus spoke "be not deceived." Deception today is a big business, in the billions of dollars and getting more sophisticated as time goes on.
CHRISTIANS ARE USED TO SPREAD PROPAGANDA
As I am writing this newsletter, there is a PR battle being fought over the issue of what happened in Jenin, when Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) attacked this town and its refugee center. The United Nations has been trying for about a week to have access to the city and the destroyed refugee center, to investigate if there has been a massacre of Palestinians. The Israeli government has refused them entry, and has been stalling them from having a UN delegation investigate on the ground what really happened. IF THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NO MASSACRE, the Israeli government would have welcomed and insisting on an immediate inspection to let the world know the truth! But what happens at any crime scene? The perpetrators always want to clean up the crime scene before the police arrive.
During the battle for Jenin, someone in Israel filed suit with the Israeli Supreme Court, asking that the IDF would not be allowed to remove the bodies of dead Palestinians, but turn them over for burial to their families. The Israeli Supreme Court took the issue under consideration, and ruled THAT THE IDF NOT BE ALLOWED TO REMOVE BODIES AND BURY THEM IN MASS GRAVES IN OTHER LOCATIONS! The ruling was broadcast for a few hours on CBS radio network in the United States, and then it was pulled with no more mention of it. Who pulled this news off the air waves? Your guess is as good as mine.
On April 25, 2002 a massive email campaign was launched by the Swedish organization "Intercessors Network." Heading up this Christian organization is Lars Widerberg, who lives in the small town of Linkoping, in southern Sweden. The subject of this mailing is "I COULDN’T STAND THE LIES." His message begins by a report of how the U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell had reported to the Senate Appropriations Foreign Operation subcommittee, that there was no massacre in Jenin by the IDF. This is followed by a written report by Asaf Haim, an Israeli "spin doctor." In a written statement released April 22, 2002, the following was stated: 1
This is followed by a 2.5 page report how noble the Israeli Army is and how they went to great length to not kill civilians and how they treated even wounded Palestinian fighters and civilians.
Any person trained in counter-intelligence will smell "a rat" in this PR campaign. Since the IDF has total control over Jenin, if there had not been mass killings, IDF would have, a long time ago, invited the UN and any other agencies to investigate for themselves and then report their findings. If there has been a massacre, it will come out during an investigation. Thus the Foreign Ministry must step in, and tell people that "the awful anti-Semites and anti-Zionists" are trying to smear Israel and score a propaganda win for the Palestinians. And since "God is on the side if Israel" it could not have happened. Since most Christians are not well informed, they will believe this release from the Israeli Foreign Ministry and pass it on to other members in the Christian churches, telling how awful the Palestinians are and how nice and sweet the Israelis are.
By April 27, the Israeli government had agreed to let the UN commission arrive Sunday night, April 28th. But one of the stipulations demanded by the Israeli government and reported on CBS radio network in the United States, was that the UN, in advance, would promise not to prosecute any member of the IDF for any possible war crimes. If there had been no massacre, why this stipulation?
THE REAL WAR OF INDEPENDENCE
What you have just read by Goodman is the official policy of Israel. The war will continue until the Palestinians are crushed and the temple mount in Jerusalem is cleared of all Islamic buildings. The Israeli Foreign Ministry is accusing Arafat of saying one thing in English to the world and another thing in Arabic to his own people. Israel does the same thing, its propaganda department tells one story, while their own people are told the truth, THE PALESTINIANS WILL BE CRUSHED, ONE WAY OR THE OTHER.
As a Christian, you must now make a judgment on this matter. Israel is justifying itself by stating, that 2000 years ago they lived in the land and they had a right to return and take it back. The Palestinians state that they have lived in the land for the last 2000 years, they have been born in the land so they feel the land belongs to them. The Jews state that God gave the land to Abraham and thus it belongs to them forever.
Most Christians accept this justification. But if we read the promise given to Israel, it also states that if they sin, God will take them out of the land and scatter them all over the world. In the end times, God will bring some of them back. The Jews are helping themselves and leaving God out of the equation, except for propaganda purposes. Deuteronomy 4:20-28; 30:10-20; Isaiah 10:20-23; Romans 11:25-29
The tragic thing is that, at this time, it is not God who is bringing the Jews back to the land of Palestine, it is the Devil himself who is determined that he is going to take the land with force , set up his temple and give the world the Antichrist. And worst of all, many Christians are helping him by supporting the current state of Israel with finances and propaganda. Talk about deception! II Thessalonians 2:1-13. And anyone resisting the Antichrist and his system is labeled anti-Semitic and treated like the plague.
THE DECK IS STACKED AGAINST THE
Daniel Kurtzer, 52 years old, grew up in Elizabeth, New Jersey and studied in the local Orthodox day school, the Jewish Educational Center. Its principal was Rabbi Pinchas Teitz, who was well known for his strong opposition and protest against Soviet treatment of Russian Jews. As an undergraduate at Yeshiva University in New York City, he studied Jewish philosophy and Hasidism with Rabbi Norman Lamm. Upon his graduation he served some time at this university as a dean. His junior year was spent at Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Daniel Kurtzer and his wife, Sheila, have three sons who are currently studying at American universities, and all three of them graduated from the religious Zionist youth movement "Bnei Akiva." Kurtzer joined the American State Department in the mid 1970s seeking to devote himself to Middle East affairs.
Early in the 1990s the Middle East peace team, headed by Dennis Ross, was composed mostly of American Jews.
However, Kurtzer is not that popular with other Orthodox Jews. They feel that he is too soft on the Palestinians and pushing dovish politics. He is being criticized for placing himself in a position where he must choose American over Israeli interests.
"Jews like Kurtzer chose to ignore the Zionist revolution and the opportunity it offers to serve your people first," says Efraim Zuroff, and Israeli historian of American Orthodoxy. "And one of the tenets of Orthodoxy is that the interest of your people always takes priority."
In an interview with a Jewish publication in April, 2002, Ambassador Kurtzer was asked this question:
Here is his answer:
The next question should bring a chill to any committed American citizen. Here is the question:
Here is his answer:
According to the American Constitution and the original policies of the United States, any American ambassador to a foreign country should be strictly loyal to the United States, not to any other foreign government. It is obvious that the last American ambassador to Israel and the current one have dual loyalties, and if they have to choose sides, they will choose Israel over the United States. The Palestinian people have as much chance to win this war, as a snowball to exist in hell.
WHAT ARE CHRISTIANS TO DO?
Since there are large numbers of Jews and Palestinians and other Arabs living in both Europe and North America, we should target them with the Gospel of love from God. If large numbers of Jews and Arabs are saved in other nations, it will have a bearing on the Middle East. We need to make it clear to both groups, that the Love of God is the only solution to all of the conflicts on the earth, and that trying to accomplish things with weapons and violence only leads to death and destruction, and worst of all, spending eternity in the Lake of Fire.
The question is this, WILL THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST WAKE UP BEFORE THE COMING OF THE ANTICHRIST OR WHEN HE TAKES HIS SEAT IN THE TEMPLE OF JERUSALEM?
1. A personal note: Lars Widerberg is a "Christian Zionist" and when I, in 1982, released my book in Swedish, The Message of the Bible in the Last Days, Widerberg was one of the people who began to smear my name by calling me "Anti-Semitic." He contacted certain people, and warned them to stay away from me. I did not know Widerberg at this time, and it was not until this year that I ran across his name from a website in Sweden and then I wrote a friendly letter to him. He responded with sarcasm and told me that I was such a low level person, that he did not have time to waste on me. He then bragged about the damage he had done to my work in Sweden and that he was tracking my activities. It makes me wonder, to whom he is reporting?
2. Orthodox Judaism is the most strict of the different Jewish "denominations." They adhere most strictly to traditional beliefs and practices. The Torah [the five books of Moses] and the Oral Law, codified in the Mishna and interpreted in the Talmud are to them immutably fixed and remain the sole norm of religious observance. Jews of this belief system observe daily worship, dietary laws, traditional prayers and ceremonies, regular and intensive study of the Torah, separation of men and women in the synagogue, strict observance of the Sabbath and religious festivals and do not permit instrumental music during communal services. A splinter group broke away in the 19th century in the United States under rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsh, who sanctioned modern dress, the use of the vernacular [local language, in this case English] in sermons and a more positive view of modern culture. Orthodox synagogues in the United States have formed an organization called "The Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America."
