The Only Real Choice We Have

29 Menachem Av 5779
Erev Shabbat - Rosh Chodesh
Parashat Re'eh

"See, I place before you today a blessing and a curse."

Ultimately, every choice we make comes down to this one.  Although there are plenty of people who will claim otherwise.  

Former US President George W.Bush famously said after the 9/11 attacks that "You are either with us or with the terrorists."  Really?  That's the choice?  What if I'm not "with" either one?  Who determines that the choice is limited to just those two?  

Also, today in the political realm, what do we hear?

"If you are against Trump, then you are with the 'Demoncrats' (sic)."

"It's either Bibi or Tibi."

"Either there will be a two-state solution - Jews with Israeli Arabs and Palestinian Arabs - or a one-state solution - Jews with Israeli Arabs with Palestinian Arabs."

Who says?  Who is it that is trying to limit our choices to the 'evil or the 'lesser evil'?

When all the noise of the outside world disappears as the sun sets on yom shishi, ponder the words of our Holy Torah from this week's parashah:
"See, I place before you today a blessing and a curse.  The blessing: that you hearken to the commandments of Hashem, your God, that I command you today.  And the curses: if you do not hearken to the commandments of Hashem, your God, and you stray from the path that I command you today, to follow gods of others, that you did not know.  (Devarim 11.26-28)
Commentary: "...the choice of whether or not to accept the Torah in its totality is nothing less than the choice between blessing and curse."
We see this played out in the lives of the very first man and woman.  Obey Hashem's instruction to abstain from eating of the Eitz Da'at Tov v'Ra or be cursed with sickness and death.  And that is the only real choice any of us have in this world.  It's definitely the only one that matters, and it's the one by which we judge the merits of all others.

I do not identify as a conservative or a liberal, a Republican or a Democrat, a leftist or right-winger, dati or hareidi. I am simply a Torah Jewess doing my utmost best to be loyal and obedient to Hashem and His Will as expressed in His Holy Torah.

I am neither with Eisav, nor with Yishmael.  That's not my choice. I am on only ONE side - HKB"H's side - and I am against ALL others who stand in opposition to Him and to His Divine Will.  To paraphrase "W":  You're either with Hashem or you are with those who oppose Him.

In a few weeks, in Parashat Nitzavim, we will read this once again only phrased a but differently.  
This day, I call upon the heaven and the earth as witnesses that I have warned you: I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. You shall choose life, so that you and your offspring will live; 
To love the Lord your God, to listen to His voice, and to cleave to Him. For that is your life and the length of your days, to dwell on the land which the Lord swore to your forefathers to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob to give to them.  (Devarim 30.19-20)
Every moment of every day, we are constantly making one choice - blessing or curse, life or death.  Don't let any of the noise from the outside world deafen you to that simple, yet deeply profound, message. 


28 Menachem Av 5779

My profoundest apologies to my readers and especially to those who take the time to write comments.  All of you are so much appreciated!  I just found 30 comments, dating up to a week back, which were misdirected to "spam."

I am working at publishing them now.  Please do go back and read the comments sections since August 21.  Bl"n, I will try very hard to be more on top of this issue in the future.

All the very best,

(Election) Summer Re-Runs or How Will It All End for Israel?

29 Menachem Av 5779

Not having a television now, I can't say for sure, but I don't think it's quite the same as it was when I was a kid back in Texas in the sixties.  Being from a poor family, there was no money for summer camp or vacations.  I had a bicycle, but riding my bike around the neighborhood could get real boring real fast, especially as I was not allowed to go more than a block in any direction.  Houston was a big, bad city even then, and my mother worried.

Needless to say, I and my five siblings watched a lot of television.  Back then, we only had three stations.  There was no cable, no satellite, etc.  And all the shows went on what was called a "hiatus" in the summer months, and we were stuck watching "re-runs" of the same shows we'd already seen during the year.  This election season in Israel reminds me of that; hence, the title.

March 2019
High Court bars far-right party head, lets Arab party run
Netanyahu fails to form new government, forcing new election
August 2019
Court Disqualifies Otzma Candidates, Allows Joint Arab List
Poll 3 Weeks Ahead of Elections for 22nd Knesset Shows Deadlock
See? Election re-runs.

But, the really important story is not revealed here. 

We've known since forever that The Regime will never disqualify an Arab party no matter how "anti-Zionist/pro-Terrorist" it is.  And we've known since at least 1988 when Rabbi Kahane, after serving as a Member of Knesset, was banned from future elections and his party ruled "racist," that anything too far to the "extreme right," i.e. too much in favor of bringing Torah out of the synagogue and into the public domain, would not be tolerated.

What has been flying mostly under the radar, however, is how complicit the regime has been in activity meant to turn Israel from a Jewish State into a state of all its citizens by infiltrating it with "loving and supportive" Christians.  That would be bad enough, except that's not all.  Their ultimate end-game is to destroy Judaism altogether by this same method; replacing traditional Torah-True Judaism with a new "Biblical Judeo-Christian" faith. 

We've already talked about the Christian Allies Caucus in the Knesset and the monthly Knesset Bible Study between Christian missionaries and MKs, as well as the cooperation of government officials all over the world with the various Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast initiatives.  Of the latter, says one reporting website:
Inspired by the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C...., the Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast Movement is coordinated by Albert Veksler who says he is “focused on building an atmosphere of unity and mutual understanding.” ...The purpose of the gathering was to build bridges of blessing between Christians and Jewish leaders around the world.

Albert Veksler was born Albert T├╝rnpu in Estonia. He made aliyah to Israel with his family in 2003, changed his last name, finished his education and became a business success. He has served variously as CEO and Founder of JPBM Consulting, Founder of the Israel Empowerment Fund, CEO of the Israel Empowerment Lobby, and is currently Director of Global Aliyah. (See more here.)
Would it surprise you at all to know that he was a major Church leader in Estonia before his "aliyah," or that he attends the original Messianic Congregation in Jerusalem, or that he appears in photographs with various high-level Dominionist leaders, or that his current job is all about making it possible for those who can't prove Jewishness to become citizens of Israel?
As head of the Israel Empowerment Lobby, he was "supported by Knesset parliamentarians and, along with city mayors, businessmen, other high officials and diplomats, promotes better understanding between Jews and Christians, by building broader support for Israel through special events and other shared activities. IEL is committed to reaching out to Christians all around the world, in order to mobilize greater support and understanding for the State of Israel and the Jewish people."

In addition to being the Director of the Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast Global Movement, Albert Veksler was also a keynote speaker at The Commonwealth of Israel - International Christian Chamber of Commerce Leadership Conference.

Breaking Israel News (BIN) - the propaganda arm of Israel365 which promotes the new one-world Judeo-Christian religion - reported on this event as follows:
As the Genesis maxim relates that those who exalt Israel will be exalted, blessings were in abundance at this year’s International Christian Chamber of Commerce (ICCC) conference in Jerusalem, themed “The Commonwealth of Israel – Becoming a Blessing to the Nations.”
...It brought people together from all over the world whose businesses and working lives have become a manifestation of an inward walk of faith. Timo Plutschinski of the WEA Business Coalition, spoke about business as a way to express God’s characteristics and Biblical principles such as accountability, trust, forgiveness for mistakes, excellence, responsibility, goodness and love.
Business, he posed, can act to expand the covenant between God and the Jewish people, but as business is all about relationships, this aim cannot be reached alone.
Knesset Member Robert Ilatov similarly commented on the intertwined destiny of the Jewish and Christian peoples,...
Jan Sturesson, Chairman of International Board of the ICCC: ... Jews and Christians “have a common history and dialogue, and most importantly, a common future.” He thus called on Christians to stand up for their Jewish roots and Judeo-Christian values by “promoting business between Christians and Jews” and “standing together” in strategic partnerships.
Tuly Weisz, Israel365: “We provide equal rights to all our citizens, Jewish, Christian or Muslim and we are creating technology not to improve our lives, but to be used all over the world and to increase the quality of life in developing nations so that we don’t become the richest nation, but a light unto the nations.”
How about that?  It's not the Torah which is the Light we bring to the World, it's Technology and material wealth!!

You might wonder, as I did, why the word "Commonwealth" was used. A dictionary definition of the word says:  "commonwealth refers to any group of people organized under a single government, particularly a republic. ...Nowadays, a commonwealth has come to mean any government in which all people involved have a say, or a loose formation of nations with a shared loyalty."  We can only guess at their true intent.  But, this quote by Albert Veksler might offer a clue:

I believe that 21st century religious life is characterized by a consensus among different churches based on the truth of God's Word. It is not so much a matter of joining organizations, but rather working together for a common purpose, where the basis of cooperation is the honoring of God's Word and one another. At the same time, however, there is a confrontation with formal Christianity, which, while having the face of godliness, denies God's power. I believe that we can see churches rise and solve social and economic problems that seem impossible. The miracles so often found in the gospels can often occur again in churches where it is doctrinally wrong. I believe that the phenomenal church growth seen in South Korea has been God's "pilot project" for the harvest of the end times, and we can see churches growing to hundreds of thousands all over the world. 
The only branch of Christianity that is growing and expanding is the Evangelical-Charismatic branch and it has already crossed all denominational lines as evidenced by Vice President Mike Pence's proud claim to be an Evangelical Catholic. And every Evangelical-Charismatic group and leader has some kind of attachment to Israel or presence in Jerusalem.

Furthermore, the Zionist State of Israel has become their gateway into traditional Torah Judaism.

From President of the United States Donald Trump to President of Brazil Jair Bolsonaro, something very strange is going on.

Not only religious movements, but even governments are now being brought under the "Judeo-Christian" banner as those who would "take dominion" and become "co-regents with God" are preparing for the Second Coming of their Failed 'Messiah" to Jerusalem and the mass slaughter of all Jews who refuse to bow the knee to him.

So, what does this have to do with the summer re-run elections?

We won't find any help or solutions from our elected leadership.  This Erev Rav Regime is riddled with infiltrators who collaborate with our sworn enemies.  It will take a revolution to clean up this mess.  Only HKB"H knows how it will come, but come it must.  And Mashiach will lead it!

Do We Understand the Cost of Mashiach

27 Menachem Av 5779

A Day of Reckoning is coming...
 "Therefore, wait for Me, says the Lord, for the day that I will rise up to meet with you. For it is My judgment to assemble nations, to gather kingdoms, to pour out My fury upon them; yea, all the kindling of My wrath, for with the fire of My jealousy all the earth shall be consumed." (Tzephaniah 3.8)
I often wonder how many of us anxiously awaiting Mashiach really understand the cost involved? 

Think about it.  The few supporters that Israel can boast are attached to the Erev Rav leadership and promote the democratic, pluralistic, freedom-for-all-religions version of the "Jewish" State.  As long as Israel is a little clone of America, we have their approval and support. 

At the 2019 Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast:
  • “We prayed for the unity between Jews, Christians and Muslims in order that the peace of Jerusalem would eventuate so that the Kingdom of God would be established according to the Lord’s [JC's] Divine will and purposes for mankind. Orthodox Jews, Messianic Jews, converted Muslims and Christians prayed in one accord with much love expressed and much love exchanged between one another.”  (Silvana Nile, Christian Democratic Party Australia)
  • “Jerusalem is not just the heart of three great religions but it is now the heart of one of the most successful democracies in the world. Over the past seven decades, the Israeli people have built a country where Jews, Muslims, and Christians and people of all faiths are free to worship according to the conscience and beliefs.” (President Donald Trump, letter read at 3rd Annual JPB, June 2019)
  • “It is clear that the governments and leaders of Israel and the U.S.value the importance of the spiritual connection between evangelicals and the Jewish state,” Rabbi Weisz told Breaking Israel News. “Everyone was there to pray; to call out to God to protect Jerusalem. The representatives called on their governments to take part in order to bring blessings upon their country.”  (Rabbi Tuly Weisz, Israel 365)
As soon as Mashiach comes and says no more Christian missionaries on Israeli soil, all of that is out the window.  As soon as Mashiach comes and says close all the churches and mosques, there won't be any more avodah zarah in the Holy Land, they will come to war against us.
Therefore, with this shall Jacob's iniquity be atoned for, and this is all the fruit of removing his sin; by making all the altar stones like crushed chalkstones; asherim and sun-images shall not rise.  (Yeshayahu 27.9)
The first to suffer the outrage of the nations will be those Jews who remain among the goyim in their lands. 

It won't be pretty in Israel either.  Those who thought to bring in a redemption in cooperation with the nations; a "redemption" where HKB"H would share his place with the false gods of Christianity and Islam, as well as those who cling to the the false gods of State, Army, Democracy, Freedom and Zionism, will no doubt feel compelled to fight a civil war rather than bow to the will of HKB"H and the demands of His Holy Torah.

The birth of the messianic age, like any birth, will be bloody and painful.  Don't be surprised by it when it comes.

POTUS Shield: Trump’s Dominionist Prayer Warriors and the ‘Prophetic Order of the United States’
By Peter Montgomery
In the early morning hours of November 9, 2016, God told Frank Amedia that with Donald Trump having been elected president, Amedia and his fellow Trump-supporting “apostles” and “prophets” had a new mission. Thus was born POTUS Shield, a network of Pentecostal leaders devoted to helping Trump bring about the reign of God in America and the world.
Amedia described the divine origins of POTUS Shield during a gathering that spread over three days in March 2017 at the northeastern Ohio church he pastors. Interspersed with Pentecostal worship, liturgical dancing, speaking in tongues, shofar blowing, and Israeli flag waving, Amedia and other POTUS Shield leaders put forth their vision for a Christian America and their plans to bring it to fruition through prayer, political engagement and organizing in all 50 states. Among the many decrees made at the event was that Islam must be “completely broken down.”
POTUS Shield’s leaders view politics as spiritual warfare, part of a great struggle between good and evil that is taking place continuously in “the heavenlies” and here on earth, where the righteous contend with demonic spirits that control people, institutions and geographic regions. They believe that Trump’s election has given the church in America an opportunity to spark a spiritual Great Awakening that will engulf the nation and world. And they believe that a triumphant church establishing the kingdom of God on earth will set the stage for Christ’s return. Amedia says that the “POTUS” in the group’s name does not refer only to the president of the United States, but also to a new “prophetic order of the United States” that God is establishing.
And they will come for the Jews who refuse to become ONE with the new Judeo-Christian World religion!  

No truly God-fearing Jew can support either the Republicans or the Democrats in the United States.  ALL Jews need to come home to Israel where they can help to create a truly Jewish country.  Mashiach will appear in ISRAEL, not America, not Europe and not Australia.  And when he begins to rule in ISRAEL, all these militant Christians are going to see him as the Anti-Messiah.  Their false religion, which they take so seriously, will require them to go to war against him since by their reckoning, he is the incarnation of the devil himself.

(See the article HERE.)
Quote:  "The same authority that has been given to [JC] for overwhelming conquering and dominion has been given to the saints of the most high. … We’re God’s rulers upon the earth. … We will govern over kings, and judges will have to submit. … We’re called to rule! To change history! To be co-regents with God!

The Trump "Prophet" - Part 2

24 Menachem Av 5779

(The Trump "Prophet" - Part 1)

In one of the final scenes of the movie, The Trump Prophecy, the aforementioned doctor and his wife are seated comfortably on their sofa in front of a television from which sounds of celebration are emanating.  Trump has just been declared the winner of the 2016 presidential election.  The wife is browsing a hand-held device when she suddenly says, "I can't believe this.  There's a video of people in Israel who heard about this American woman leading a grand blowing of the shofar and now they're in the streets of Israel doing the same thing.  It's crazy!"

Lest you mistakenly think these are Jews celebrating Donald Trump's election victory, although that is the impression that is given, later on in a different segment, Michelle Bachmann describes a scene, purportedly in Jerusalem, where a large group of people were filmed falling on their faces and beseeching God on Trump's behalf. Someone explains to her that it is a group of CHINESE CHRISTIANS who traveled to Jerusalem just for the sake of praying in the most powerful place for prayer that Trump would win.  

What Jews mostly fail to appreciate is the global reach of this Dominionist movement.

At the very end of the movie, the ex-fireman-turned-false-prophet Mark Taylor is seen at his desk, recording a new "prophecy" in his journal...
The spirit of God says, "Israel, Israel, what about Israel?  For Israel will be protected by America once again."  The spirit says, "America will once again stand hand-in-hand with Israel, and the two shall be as one.'"
About the first 45 mins of this film is devoted to a very slow, very drawn-out telling of this fireman's story, documenting his credentials as a bonafide prophet of God.  

Just like their messiah is our anti-messiah and vice versa, so is their prophet a false prophet to us.  I am only sharing this background because it is very relevant to what is coming upon Jews both in America and in Israel in the very near future.   Because the people behind this film and the agenda it promotes are actively waging a gog umagog spiritual war on us, I think Jews need to be made aware of that fact and not be taken in by their claims to have our best interests at heart, or that they are supportive of us for any other reason than their own personal gain.

The last half hour is devoted to a music video and a series of interviews with some of the leading lights of the Dominionist movement.

With rousing patriotic music on the background of the flag, heart-tugging images are shown of veterans, and soldiers hugging children, and marines presenting arms, the space shuttle blasting off, etc.  Following are the words of the chorus of the song which repeats until the end when it changes subtly to the second chorus.  The words are both revealing and scary. 

Referencing the soldiers who fought WWII ...
It was beautiful.  It was sacrifice.
It was marvelous, but they paid the price
For our freedom, for our brotherhood,
For our dignity, they all stood, for the greater good.
Times have changed, but our time is here.
This is no time to run in fear.
Let the legacy of sweet freedom ring
From humble beginnings, from sea to shining sea.

It is beautiful, it is sacrifice,
It is marvelous, and we will pay the price
For our freedom, for our brotherhood,
For our dignity, we will stand, for the greater good.
Following are the most relevant comments made by some of the leaders of their movement who no doubt fancy themselves patriots in the mold of the Founding Fathers preparing for the Second American Revolution to turn the United States into what they claim it was always meant to be - A CHRISTIAN NATION.

Lt. General William Boykin (Former US Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence under George W. Bush): 
...II Chronicles 7:14 is very clear - "My people who are called by My name.."' - that means those of us who are believers [in JC] - who call ourselves Christians...
Chris Delaney (International Business Executive/Former Canadian Politician): 
 What's really interesting from that passage in the Bible [II Chron. 7:14] is that it says, "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face' - so He's not saying all of America, he's not saying all of the world, He's saying "My people."
Lance Wallnau (Author/International Speaker):
The promise in Chronicles that Solomon gave that is so profound is that if "My people that are called by My name will humble themselves and pray, if they will turn from their wicked ways, then I'll hear from heaven."  So much of the repentance and awakening and revival hope of Christians in America is all about what God is going to do with the UN-Christian community, how He's going to change them, when the promise has nothing to do with them. It has to do with us - how believers [in JC] respond.  It's how believers connect with their president and this moment - that's what determines the healing of the land.  And so the real focus of that promise is believers have got to get their act together if they want to preserve their way of life
Michael Freund (Former Chief of Communications for Benjamin Netanyahu):
In other words, we can't just kick back and passively await redemption to come.  We are put in this world to do things, to accomplish things.  We are put in this world to partner with God in bringing holiness and sanctity into this material world. 
[In reality this describes Jews but does not apply to non-Jews, even more so Christians. As you can tell already, replacement theology is still very much alive and well among Evangelicals.]

Michelle Bachmann (Former Member of Congress/House of Representatives):
The salvation for America is the collection of believers, just enough who will get on our knees and humble ourselves and recognize our goal needs to be the maintenance of liberty.
Lance Wallnau:
America's role in the world is literally the guardian of a free order and really supports the economic stability of nations that have the gospel preached.  So, in a a very significant way, making America great again is about preserving the strength of the United States in a very competitive ideological conflict of nations so that as America is strong, democracy can be strong.
[They have made no bones about this.  The very moment that Israel ceases to be a democracy in the image of America, they will turn on us like an enemy.] 

Michelle Bachman:
Any time there is a disaster, it is the United States that is first on the scene.  Why?  Because of our system of free-market enterprise, we've been able to create wealth in this nation.  You can't help other people unless you have wealth and so we should never apologize for the fact that in this country, we know how to create wealth.  We need to know how to use it wisely.
Bishop Larry Jackson (Pastor/Author/International Speaker):
...If the United States is not strong economically, the rest of the world is going to suffer tremendously....  We've got to have a strong dollar, we need to have a strong economy so that we can help.  The thing about this country is that we give more than any other nation on the planet, we are the most charitable people on the planet, and so, as a result of that, we are taking care of a lot of people around this world that would not have, if America was not here.
[If this were even true, which it is not, I'm sure the Creator could find some other way of getting people what they need.  After all, He is not limited in any way whatsoever!]

Chris Delaney:
...We are literally the glue that keeps the peace in the world.  Is there a price to pay for that by the American public - yes.  But, at the same time, it's necessary.
Michelle Bachmann:
In the world, there is no greater epicenter than Jerusalem, Israel. 
Janet Porter (President - Fath2Action/ Right to Life Activist):
There's a lot of people that say, "Why Israel? Why does it matter?"  Not only is it our only democracy in the Middle East, not only is it our best friend in that region, but if you want to be on the right side of history, you want to be on God's side.  And if God is for Israel, and He is, then I want to be for Israel.  God said He will bless those who bless them, that we are to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and when I saw that President Trump changed the embassy...  I was cheering, I was crying.  
Chris Mitchell (Middle East News Correspondent): 
One of the greatest principles in the Bible to the Jewish People is found in Genesis,chapter 12, when it says that God would bless those who bless the Jewish People and President Trump, in so many practical ways, has stood behind Israel [actually the Erev Rav regime which carries out America's desires] has had its back diplomatically and militarily and has also moved the United States Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.  That's a huge diplomatic, historic and even prophetic statement.  Because of the blessing that President Trump has bestowed on the Jewish People, that will reap economic, diplomatic, and even spiritual blessings for the United States.
[In other words, whatever good they think they are doing is an investment, and like the businessmen that they are, they are looking for a return on that investment.]

 Lance Wallnau:
You know, the uniqueness of Israel and the Bible for Christians is that it represents the promises of God that He is going to be restoring a people to a land and He's going to prosper a people on a land.  There again, it is an interesting reality that Donald Trump and Israel have this in common, that they have global enemies very much interested in  developing a narrative that would destroy them and so, the United States has a covenant relationship in a sense with God formed out of the Founders and the way in which they approached creating the unique experiment of an American community founded on religious libertyThe only other nation that shares that in common is Israel.
[So first he says Israel is unique and then disproves it by saying how it has these things in common.  "Religious liberty" is absolutely NOT a Jewish or Torah "value."  The Torah does not allow for the acceptance of various gods and various forms of worship.]

Michelle Bachmann:
Dependent on how the election turned out, so too, Israel's fortunes could perhaps hang in the balance.
Bishop Larry Jackson:
I believe our relationship with Israel is key, not only as an ally, but because God said if you bless Israel, you're going to be blessed.  You can't make it any simpler than that.

The Trump "Prophet" - Part 1

24 Menachem Av 5779

If Jews think the environment in the US has turned scary now, just wait a few more months.

Quoting an article concerning a message from Mark Taylor, a self-proclaimed and Evangelical-endorsed "prophet of G-d"...
During his recent appearance on Sheila Zilinsky’s podcast, Mark Taylor, a radical right-wing conspiracy theorist and so-called “firefighter prophet,” claimed that God had told him that if President Trump doesn’t start carrying out mass arrests of high-profile Democratic politicians by January, “patriots will rise up” and “take matters into their own hands” by murdering them in the streets.

Reiterating a warning he delivered last year, Taylor claimed that the window to avoid such violence is rapidly closing.

“What the Lord has shown me is that if they wait too long,” he said, “it could be another Mogadishu or another Benghazi, where the patriots will rise up and say, ‘Enough is enough,’ and they will take matters into their own hands and they will drag their dead bodies through the streets. They will go to these politicians’ houses or offices and drag them out.”

“The people are not asking for justice, they are demanding it, so the government has to act,” Taylor added. “They need to make probably one or two high-level arrests, high-profile arrests, perp walk them on national television so that people will see that justice is going to be done. They have got to make the arrests before January if they are going to make them this year, because if [Trump] arrests anyone after January when campaign season starts, it’s going to make it look like he’s just arresting those that oppose him. So they have a window of time between now and the end of the year to make these arrests. That is what God has shown me as far as this timeline.”  (Source)
Who Is Mark Taylor?

In October 2018, a month before the US mid-term election, a Christian Evangelical-produced film opened for two days only in 1200 cinemas nationwide.  It was called "The Trump Prophecy" and it detailed the life and burgeoning spiritual "awakening" of Mark Taylor, a firefighter plagued by symptoms of PTSD.  Suffering nightmares of encounters with the devil, Mr. Taylor consults a doctor whose wife has an inside track with the Holy Ghost.  She begins to advise him and as a result, he starts to pray and then to hear God talking to him.  He writes everything down in detail in a journal.

In 2013, he shares that he received a prophecy from God in 2011 that Donald Trump would become president of the United States, but since Trump did not run for office in 2012, he doesn't know what to think.   One of the things God is claimed to have told him is: "As Benjamin Netanyahu is to Israel so will Donald Trump be to the United States."

As the doctor's wife starts spreading this news, she as well as others, initially respond that Trump is really not their cup of tea - they had planned to vote for Ted Cruz - but, if this is how God is leading then everybody has to get on board and make it happen.

They start a national prayer effort to pray for a Trump victory.  In one scene, it is the doctor's wife's turn to lead the call to prayer - via conference call - and she does so from inside an airplane toilet.  They decide to include the blowing of a shofar to give added oomph to their prayers and the film jumps from one scene to another, even featuring people in Jerusalem, blowing shofarot.  Israel comes up frequently and Michael Freund appears in some of the scenes where different Evangelical leaders are explaining the dire need the world has for Trump the President.

Does he really have prophecy?  Not in the Torah sense, though that's what they believe and what they want others to believe.  But, we should heed what they are saying nonetheless because there is such a thing as self-fulfilling prophecies - ones that many people working together can make happen.  And as we saw in the report on The Family and in all previous reports on the Dominionists, they have been working on this plot for three generations now, infiltrating the top levels of government and cultural institutions.  They believe their time has arrived.

Just the fact that this man would share such thoughts and publicize such desires should light a fire under American Jews to get out while they still can.  If this is really where America is headed, Jews are in very great danger.  I don't even want to think about what will happen if Trump is not re-elected.

It looks like "Holy War" is coming to America and no sane Jew is going to want to find himself in the middle of that!

The Trump "Prophet" - Part 2

22 August 2019

"The Chosen One"

21 Menachem Av 5779

Just another proof that JC ("second coming") is "God" in their view.
The evangelical conspiracy theorist Trump used to validate his comments on Jews
“I believe Donald Trump should be called ‘America’s first Jewish president,’” he wrote on the Fox News website. “I should know. I’m an Ivy League-educated Jewish kid from New York.”

Maybe, in the sense that Saul was a Jewish kid from Tarsus — Root is an evangelical Christian, something he did not mention in his Fox column.

This is very dangerous talk from someone as egomaniacal as President Donald Trump.  Especially when he has a large band of Dominionist Christians surrounding him and egging him on and a fake "Sanhedrin" minting coins with his head on one side and King Cyrus' on the other!

In light of the current debate over whether American Jews should be supporting the Republican party or the Democratic party, I highly recommend a re-read of this article published in November 2016: Opinion: Why No One Should Vote for Hillary OR Trump.  

The only way for Jews to live safely in the Diaspora is to keep their heads down and disengage from the culture around them.  

In a way, President Trump's accusation of "disloyalty" hits the mark.  We can always count on the goyim to keep us in our place.  We have only one land - Eretz Yisrael.  Anyplace else, we are temporary sojourners just waiting for the opportunity to return to our home.

The Solution to BDS and Growing Antisemitism is Counter-Intuitive

20 Menachem Av 5779

For all their secular education, Israeli leaders will never understand the source of their most pressing problems and consequently, how to successfully resolve them.  That's because they stem from spiritual roots.  

Take the BDS movement and the "new" antisemitism for example.  The Israeli government's Office of Strategic Affairs has taken on this battle, but in not understanding the true cause, they are throwing gasoline to put out a fire.  The path to resolution of these matters is counter-intuitive.  Instead of coming closer to the nations by emphasizing how much we are the same, Israel must distance itself from the nations and maintain its unique status and purpose in the world.

Israel and the nations cannot be "one."  It is a physical impossibility as Israel sits on a pinnacle above the rest of the world.  It will forever and always be a cut above.  It can only come close to the nations by debasing and lowering itself to their level.  Israel's mission is to bring the nations up to its current level while it continues to rise up to the next level above.  

The nations understand this subconsciously, and their resentment at being forced to remain at their lower level, while Israel plays at being equal, instead of being raised up as G-d intended, is directly expressed through BDS and antisemitism.

The Truth About The "Billions of Dollars" That the US "Gives" to Israel

20 Menachem Av 5779

There are a lot of misconceptions about the "money" the US "gives" to Israel.  See?  Just that right there does not correctly describe the situation, but it's what we see and hear in the news all the time - that the US gives Israel money, and our enemies in Congress want to take it away as a means of punishing us or blackmailing us.  (Omar says US should halt aid to Israel until it gives Palestinians ‘full rights’ -“We give Israel more than $3 billion in aid every year,....")  And while we're talking truth here, there is no doubt whatever in my mind that this is precisely why the US "gives" any nation "money" - as a means of extending their control.

First of all, the United States government does NOT give Israel money, nor does it even loan us money.  It simply co-signs any loans we make (up to a certain amount) in order to enable us to receive more favorable terms from the banks who actually make the loans.
Loan guarantees to Israel are just another way that the United States financially helps the Jewish state, but this is done without even spending one dollar. In 1992, Congress and President Bush authorized $10 billion in guarantees to Israel and, in 2003, a new set of loan guarantees - for $9 billion - were put in place to serve until 2012. This guarantee was extended to last until 2019.

Guarantees are not grants — not one penny of U.S. government funds are transferred to Israel. The U.S. simply cosigns loans for Israel that give bankers confidence to lend Israel money at more favorable terms: lower interest rates and longer repayment periods — as much as 30 years instead of only five to seven. These loan guarantees have no effect on domestic programs or guarantees. Moreover, they have no impact on U.S. taxpayers unless Israel were to default on its loans, something it has never done. In addition, much of the money Israel borrows is spent in the United States to purchase American goods.  (Source)
Re-read that last sentence carefully - "...much of the money Israel borrows is spent in the United States to purchase American goods."  In fact, this is a requirement of the loan guarantees.  And it is also a fact that Israeli companies have gone out of business over the years because the money the government previously spent at home was now forced to go overseas to America.

I personally would like nothing better than to see the US government shoot itself in its own foot by cancelling their loan guarantees to Israel so that we could spend our borrowed money elsewhere and prop up someone else's economy, if not our own - someone more appreciative of the business.

We have to ask ourselves why this is not more commonly known.  Whose interests are served by letting the general public believe that Israel is simply a beggar coming perpetually hat-in-hand to her Uncle Sam for "help."  Certainly, it's not in the best interests of the Jews.

NOTE:  In 2003, Congress approved $9 billion in loan guarantees over a three year period. Congress has extended the program several times and it is now authorized through the end of FY2019. As with the earlier guarantees, Israel was required to use the funds within the pre-1967 borders and the amount of the guarantees could be reduced by an amount equal to Israel's expenditures on settlements in the territories.  (Source)

Jewish Missionaries for Christianity

19 Menachem Av 5779

In Israel, we have what I call Jewish missionaries for Christianity.  These are mostly Anglo, self-professed "religious Orthodox" Jews who are on a self-described "mission" to bring Jews and Christians together based on what they claim is a commonality shared by the two groups.  Despite the fact that assimilation is a spiritual disease that is spread by contact in the public sphere, these Jewish missionaries for Christianity have no concern at all for the spiritual well-being of their Jewish brethren.  This is being demonstrated once again in the lead-up to the most contagious season of all in Israel - Sukkot

Every year the Christian missionaries go all out to bring their message to the Jews of Israel.  You see, they claim that events connected with Yeshu's "first coming" occurred during the "Spring Feasts" and likewise, events foretold to occur at his "second coming" will take place during the "Fall Feasts."  That's why they are always expecting really "BIG things" to happen at Sukkot (Gog uMagog) time.  

Too many ignorant Jews buy into the false narrative that what occurs in Israel every Sukkot - the missionary-orgs-inspired and missionary-orgs-led "March of the Nations" - is a fulfillment of the prophecy that all nations will come up to Jerusalem to bow before G-d and submit to His sovereignty.  For, in truth, to these thousands of joyful Christian celebrants, Yeshu IS "God," G-d forbid!  And it is HE that they come to worship and praise and bow before, and their great expectation is that davka at this holiday, the Jews will join them in submission to their UNholy three-in-one.

Everything they do here during that time is geared to this end and it gets bigger and bigger, and bigger every year!!!

A controversy has already been stirred over the newest addition to this year's lineup.  

Is a Popular Musical Coming to Israel Designed to Missionize Jews?

(How "popular" can it be?  It was created for Sukkot in Jerusalem 2019 and has not yet been seen. But that's BIN for you.)

Judy Lash Balint, a popular Jerusalem author, is quoted in the article as saying: “Nowhere in the advertising is it mentioned that this is a production created by a gospel singer promoting a Jesus agenda. If that had been clear and Israelis still want to attend, fine. I was in touch with many people I know who ‘liked’ the ad for the musical and who had no clue who was behind it."

Another savvy self-respecting Jew wrote via Facebook, according to the article: “Attendance to such an event, even if the subject matter doesn’t include Jesus at all, is extremely problematic. Besides the fact that the people involved in the event are actively praying for the conversion of Jews, proceeds for the event go to support the missionary organization. Missionaries produced this and are hoping their work in Israel here will open the hearts of Jews to Jesus.”

This musical is being promoted by a gospel musician whose music is for the sole purpose of honoring and glorifying a false god and leading others to do the same.  

Advance advertising is gearing it towards families with children and there is a Facebook ad asking for donations to cover free admission for Holocaust survivors and orphans.

Rosh Chodesh Elul and the start of the 40 Days of Awe are just around the corner.  It is not too soon to begin warning everyone we know and to influence everyone we can to not take their children to see this musical.  The best outcome would if there were no audience for this musical.  Not only would it deprive the makers of funds to further their missionary agenda among Jews in Israel, it would go a long way towards discouraging others following in their path.

To paraphrase Pirkei Avot: "If we are not for ourselves, who will be for us?"  Certainly not the Yeshu-worshipers, no matter how much they protest their "love" for us!

Do What Moshe Rabeinu Could Not Do

15 Menachem Av 5779
TU b'Av/Erev Shabbat Kodesh
Parashat Va'etchanan - Shabbat Nachamu

Parashat Va'etchanan - Some Halachot regarding non-Jews in Eretz Yisrael

When Hashem, your G-d, will bring you to the Land to which you come to possess it, and He will thrust away many nations from before you [...], you shall not seal a covenant with them nor shall you show them favor (“lo techanem”). (Deut. 7:2)
[Regarding this we find in] Avodah Zarah 20a: “You must not give them any consideration ” (Deut. 7:2): Do not give them a foothold [“chanayah”] on the land. Alternately: Ascribe to them no charm [“chen”. Rashi: “Do not say, 'How fine this non-Jew is!'”]. Alternately: Give them no free [“chinam”] gift. Later on the Talmud concludes, “All are valid.” An additional restriction appears in Rambam, Hilchot Avodah Zarah 10:3,4: We do not sell them houses and fields in Eretz Yisrael... neither do we lease fields to them...Why were our sages strict regarding fields? It is because [leasing them to non-Jews] has two [negative results]: It diminishes the tithes and gives non-Jews a foothold on the Land. We are allowed to sell them houses and fields outside the Land because it [any foreign land] is not our land. It is thus clear that there are two reasons for the Torah prohibition against selling houses, or even leasing fields, to any non-Jew, even if he be one of the righteous gentiles [a ger toshav].

Rambam mentioned both in discussing the prohibition against leasing fields (Hilchot Avodah Zarah 10:4): “It diminishes the tithes (1) and gives them a foothold on the land (2).”

(1) Since Eretz Yisrael is holy and we are duty-bound to sanctify its soil through tithes (besides all the other mitzvot that are dependent on the land), how can we dare sell or lease land to any non-Jew? A non-Jew is not bound by tithes, and by our action, we diminish the scope of the mitzvah, and, so to speak, the holiness that is thereby added to this soil.

(2) A non-Jew, by buying or renting land in Eretz Yisrael, takes a portion of the land and has a sort of ownership over it, and it is forbidden to give him this foothold. What, after all, is this “foothold”? Surely it is the feeling in the non-Jew's heart that he has found a place to live, a place to call his own.

Rambam wrote explicitly (Ibid.): Why do we not sell to them? It says, “Do not give them any consideration” (Deut. 7:2). Give them no foothold on the Land. As long as they have no land, their residence there is temporary. In our own time, Rabbis have struggled over this, and for various reasons, to our chagrin, some have ruled that it is permissible today to sell fields and houses to non-Jews. I have no doubt whatsoever that they are erring regarding the great foundation of the Land and People of Israel, and that there is no difference at all as far as giving non-Jews a foothold in the land and ascribing to them charm, between the seven nations, plain idolaters and ger toshav. [The difference between these groups is that a ger toshav is essentially permitted to live in Eretz Yisrael, though without owning land, without a “foothold”, whereas members of the seven nations or those equal to them today (unless they submit to very specific conditions) and all plain idolaters may not live in Eretz Yisrael at all.]

“Ascribe them no charm”: From the verse, “These are the laws that you must set before [Israel]” (Ex. 21:1), we derive that even if non-Jews judge the same way as Jews, it is forbidden to use their courts. The reason is that the very acceptance of the non-Jew or his laws, even if they are like Torah law, is a chilul Hashem. A Jew is forbidden to accept upon himself either non-Jewish law or a non-Jewish judge, as it says, “Their powers are not like our Mighty One, although our enemies sit in judgment.” Rashi comments (Ex. 21:1), “When our enemies sit in judgment, it testifies to the superiority of their deity” [or religion, or value system, as we encounter today in the form of Arab Muslim judges in Israel or in the case of Jews outside Israel using non-Jewish courts even in internal Jewish matters!] Here is decisive proof for the prohibition against appointing a non-Jewish judge over Israel, even if he judges according to Torah law.

Some have sought to approve non-Jews serving in positions of authority over Israel, and they bring proof from the Mishnah (Avot 1:10): “Shemaya and Avtalion received the oral tradition from them [Yehuda ben Tabai and Shimon ben Shetach].” In other words, Shemaya was the prince and Avtalion the head of the Sanhedrin, despite their having been converts, and how could they have held these posts when according to the Talmud and poskim it is forbidden to appoint a convert [meaning a ger tzedek, a complete convert to Judaism] to a position over Israel. HaKnesset HaGedolah answers this (Choshen Mishpat, mahadura kamma, siman 7), saying that if Israel accepted a convert over them, then it is permissible.

Based on this, in this orphan generation, reeling from fear of the nations and an inferiority complex regarding what Hellenists will say about the holy laws separating Israel and the nations, some have declared that there is no prohibition against appointing even non-Jews (and not just converts) to positions over Israel, if Israel accept them upon themselves. G-d forgive them! According to their opinion, can a non-Jew be appointed even king or prince if he is accepted? Can an elected government have a non-Jewish majority, or even a number of non-Jews that will enable them to place their imprint on the character of the state? And if one non-Jew can be appointed, why not a majority or such a large number that they will be able to decide on such issues as who is a Jew, Sabbath desecration, pig farming, mixed marriages, missionizing or the dissemination of the false, alien culture – and all in the name of the alien, abominable concept of “democracy”? Let the heavens be astonished! Shall those who condone this not understand the gravity of their error?

If our sages permitted the appointing of a convert by mutual agreement, that is because the law that a convert is unfit for positions of authority over Jews is just based on an exposition brought by our sages and is not explicit in any verse. Yet, the restriction forbidding the non-Jew from positions of authority is explicit in a verse and serves to separate him from Jews. It is part of his servitude and constitutes a declaration that he has no right to authority over G-d's holy people. A convert, by contrast, is a Jew in every way and is restricted only because authority over Israel must be held exclusively by the elite and not by those who were non-Jews and have now converted. Therefore, perhaps we could say, with some reservations, that because a convert has accepted the Torah and is a Jew in every way, and there is no reason to separate him from Israel, him being part of Israel and keeping the mitzvot, then if the community agrees, he may serve in positions of authority. Yet, none of this has any connection to the non-Jew, whose reason for being unfit for positions of authority over Israel differs entirely. The non-Jew is not a part of the Jewish People. He has no portion in the Land, and no one can seriously claim that he can be granted authority over Israel.

If G-d demanded our separation from the nations, why allow non-Jews to live in the Land? The answer is that G-d wished to eradicate idolatry as much as possible, thereby sanctifying His name among the nations so that they would accept the yoke of His kingdom. If a non-Jew sincerely wishes to be a resident alien (ger toshav), to abandon idolatry and undertake the seven Noahide laws, thereby sanctifying G-d's name among the nations, better that he should do this and live in Eretz Yisrael than to live outside the Land as an idolater and profane G-d's name. Clearly, however, all this applies only if he accepts conditions guaranteeing that he remain isolated from Israel and ensuring his understanding that Eretz Yisrael is the exclusive land of the Jewish People and that he has only the right to reside there. A non-Jew does not become a ger toshav until he stands before a Jewish court and accepts the seven Noachide laws. As Rambam wrote: “Whoever accepts them is the person called a ger toshav throughout the Talmud, assuming he accepts them before a court of three” (Hilchot Melachim 8:10). It certainly does not suffice for him to reject idolatrous beliefs or actual worship, if it is not accompanied by a court declaration. [Regarding this] Ritva ruled (Makot 9a): A ben-Noach [as opposed to a ger toshav, see above] is one who did not undertake these mitzvot in Jewish court, yet we know that he keeps them on his own... We are not commanded to sustain such a person... The stam goi [plain non-Jew] is one who does not keep the seven mitzvot [and who is notpermitted to live in Eretz Yisrael under any circumstances]. From these rulings it emerges that only a non-Jew who undertook before a Jewish court to keep the seven Noachide laws is called a ger toshav, and only he can be allowed to live among us in Eretz Yisrael.This implies that a non-Jew must accept the seven mitzvot upon himself as being part of the Torah [and not for any other reason]. That, after all, is why he appears before the Jewish court.

Never forget the following rule: With all we have said about the non-Jew who undertook [...] the seven Noachide laws being called a resident alien (ger toshav), and being allowed to live in the Land, there is no duty applying to us whose omission renders us sinners. Rather, the law is just a dispensation, to make it easier for the non-Jew to come closer to the Divine truth. In other words, we are allowed - not obligated - to let such a non-Jew live in Eretz Yisrael. If, for any reason (i.e. security precautions), we fear danger of deception, then we are certainly permitted and required to forbid every non-Jew, even the resident alien (ger toshav), to live in the Land. (after all, even converts were rejected during certain periods for certain reasons).
You shall observe the commandment, and the decrees and the ordinances that I command you today, to perform them. (Deut. 7:11)
